an impasse
District, union will now enter
the mediation phase over pay
By Angela Swartz
Labor negotiations between the San Carlos Elementary
School District and teachers union have stalled, leading to
an impasse process to resolve disputes Wednesday.
Salary negotiations began around the end of January, with
the San Carlos Teachers Association asking for a 2 percent
raise, along with higher contributions to health and well-
ness costs since health care costs have risen. The district
offered a 1 percent one-time bonus for the 2013-14 school
year, with a .5 percent salary schedule increase toward
health and welfare. The two mutually agreed to go to
impasse after the teachers rejected the latter proposal.
Negotiations have not gone well at all, said Sarah Amos,
co-chair of the union’s negotiation team and teacher at
Central Middle School.

Aproposal to turn Foster City’s Edgewater
Place Shopping Center into a mixed-use
waterfront housing development is on hold
after Edgewater Holding Corporation decided
to first reach out to the community for sup-
port, Community Development Director
Curtis Bank said this week.
The redevelopment would require a zoning
and general plan amendment and, per the
city’s new gatekeeper ordinance, the City
Council would be the first to review the pro-
ject’s pre-application.
Councilmember concerns about the post-
poned proposal range from impacts on
schools to the loss of services to current
residents. However, there is some sympa-
thy with EHC wanting to remain profitable,
particularly with housing becoming more
desirable in Foster City.
“I think it’s a fine line on growth as to, do
you just redevelop every part of land for the
profit from what can be driven on it, versus
what’s good for the residents,” Councilman
Gary Pollard said.
The shopping center on Edgewater
Boulevard at Beach Park Boulevard current-
ly covers about 123,300 square feet split
between about 35 stores and businesses,
which includes a Lucky Supermarket, a nail
salon, two tutoring centers, two dry clean-
ers, a bank and several restaurants. EHC
declined to comment, however, city offi-
cials said most businesses, if not all, would
have to vacate should the site be redevel-

Researchers hope to examine
dead whale near Pillar Point
By Joan Dentler
Marine researchers and harbor officials will have to wait
and see if a deceased humpback whale that pressed up against
the rocky break wall near Pillar Point Harbor on Wednesday
washes onshore before determining its age, size, cause of
death, or if the carcass is suitable for research or education-
al use.
Marine Mammal Center spokeswoman Sarah van Schagen

Shooting guns seems to be an activ-
ity for men, but a weekend event at the
Coyote Point Rifle and Pistol Club is
aiming to change that.
The nonprofit Coyote Point Rifle
and Pistol Club is holding its second
beginners pistol class geared toward
women who want to learn about and
experience something that is foreign
to them, said Mike Norton, a club
board member and the lead instructor
for the class.
“Most of these women are coming
from, they’re middle-aged, they’ve had
life experiences. But [shooting] is
something that they’ve never experi-
enced before. So what we’re trying to
do is say, come in and experience
something and challenge yourself and
alleviate any fears. With knowledge,
you overcome fear,” Norton said.
Ten women have signed up for the
two-day course that makes safety the
first priority, Norton said. The eight-
hour class is split into four hours of
lecture, two hours of simulation and
two hours of live fire. Participants will
learn about pistol safety, the different
components of a gun, fundamental
shooting skills and how to care and
clean a pistol. The students will also
learn about different forms of ammuni-
tion and use a .22 caliber handgun,
which is one of the smallest and most
introductory caliber guns one can
shoot, Norton said.
All of the club instructors are
National Rifle Association certified
and volunteers, Norton said.
The San Mateo County Sheriff’s
Office owns and operates the Coyote
Point Shooting Range, which is safely
enclosed and one of the only outdoor
ranges on the Peninsula, Norton said.
The range opened in 1963 and, along
with the Sheriff’s Office, about 10 to
15 law enforcement agencies train at
the facility, Norton said.

Man charged in BB
gun road-rage attack
LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors say a
28-year-old man who allegedly shot a
woman in the eye with a BB gun during a
fit of road rage has been charged with
assault with a deadly weapon.
The Los Angeles Times reports Cory
Allen Flenory is accused of trying to ram
the woman’s car in a Wal-Mart parking
lot in Stevenson Ranch on Saturday.
Prosecutors say he then trailed her car to
an intersection, where he opened fire
with a BB gun, striking her in the face.
Flenory was arrested Monday.
The 22-year-old woman, who was in
driving with her boyfriend at the time,
may lose sight in her right eye. Her
boyfriend was not hurt.
The Los Angeles County district attor-
ney’s office said Wednesday that Flenory
is also charged with mayhem and van-
dalism causing more than $400 in dam-

baseball ‘superfan’ banished
COSTAMESA — Adie-hard fan of the

The Orange County Register reported
Wednesday that 49-year-old Keith
Franklin had his season ticket revoked

The school says he went over the line.
Franklin says he had permission. And
Gillepsie didn’t seem to mind, smiling
and shaking Franklin’s hand.
Since the home-field banishment,
Franklin’s enthusiasm hasn’t waned. He
attends all away games, leading cheers
and inventing nicknames for players.
And he’s maintaining his vow not to
cut his hair until the Anteaters make the
College World Series.
California man uses stolen
backhoe to destroy home
MADERA— Authorities have arrested
a Central California man they say used a
stolen backhoe to crush a vacant mobile
home that was not slated for demolition.
The Fresno Bee reports Madera
County deputies caught 51-year-old
Richard Newman in the act of demolish-
ing the home with the excavator, which
went missing from a rental company
last week.
Newman told deputies he didn’t steal
the John Deere backhoe — he just bor-
rowed it and was planning to return it
after completing his job.
The manager of the bank-owned prop-
erty says Newman was not hired to do
any job — especially not to demolish
the home.
Newman was booked into Madera
County Jail, with bail set at $45,000.
Police: Man stole
bread truck, made deliveries
NEWYORK — Authorities say a man
stole a New York City bakery truck and
began delivering loaves of bread to ran-
dom businesses.
Police say David Bastar hopped into
Grimaldi’s Home of Bread truck on
Manhattan’s Upper East Side early
Monday while the real driver was mak-
ing a delivery at a pizzeria.
Wearing only his underwear, Bastar
then allegedly began dropping off
baguettes, whole-wheat rolls and sour-
dough bread. He eventually distributed
the entire $8,000 worth of baked goods
— but not to the bakery’s customers.
Joe Grimaldi owns the Queens bakery.
He tells the Journal News that business-
es found bread in front of their doors.
Bastar, of Nanuet, has been taken to a
hospital for evaluation. He faces
charges of criminal possession of
stolen goods. It wasn’t immediately
clear whether he had a lawyer.

The former church usher accused of
inappropriately touching two young
girls on separate occasions will stand
trial next month after a judge Thursday
refused to dismiss the charges.
The defense asked Judge Jonathan
Karesh to drop the case against Julian
Lopez, 69, but were refused. Lopez now
stands trial June 23 on four counts of
molestation and faces life in prison if
convicted of abusing multiple victims.
In 2008, Lopez served at Ministerio
Mundial in Daly City when a teen says
that, when she was 10, he approached
her upstairs where
she was doing
homework and both
kissed and fondled
her. The girl said
Lopez threatened to
harm her parents if
she told but she
informed her mother
who contacted the
church pastor. The
pastor called a church meeting at
which Lopez reportedly confessed and
asked forgiveness from some members
of the congregation, according to
Lopez was removed as an usher but
not the church.
The alleged victim brought the accu-
sations to police now after having
trouble attending the same church as
her alleged abuser, according to the
District Attorney’s Office.
After the teen came forward, further
police investigation led to another
reported victim who said around the
same time in 2008, when she was 13,
Lopez also grabbed her twice and
touched her inappropriately.
Lopez is being held without bail and

Police warn of rise in
telephone scams targeting seniors
Police in South San Francisco are warn-
ing of a rise in fraudulent telephone scams
that target seniors.
On Tuesday, police said a South San
Francisco woman received a telephone call
from a person claiming to be a paralegal
from the Attorney General’s office. The
suspect told the victim that there was a
warrant for her arrest and she needed to pay
a fee by using a Vanilla prepaid cash card,
or risk being sent to jail.
The only description the victim gave
police was that the suspect had a “Russian”
Financial fraud is the fastest growing
form of elder abuse, according to police.
Police said elder financial abuse is tough to
combat because it often goes unreported.
Many elderly victims are often confused,
fearful or embarrassed by the crime and fail
to report it.
Prevalent types of scams include those
that tell victims they are lottery or sweep-
stakes winners, offer to make home or util-
ity repairs, report found cash, request cred-
it card number verification, bank examiner
scams, grandparent scams and IRS agent
Police urged seniors to protect them-
selves from financial fraud by becoming
familiar with these common scams and to
report suspicious calls authorities.
The California Department of Justice, in
cooperation with AARP, has published a
booklet, “A Citizen’s Guide to Preventing
and Reporting Elder Abuse,” which pro-
vides hints on how to detect signs of phys-
ical, emotional and financial elder abuse.
To report a fraudulent telephone scam,
contact the South San Francisco police at
(650) 877-8900 or the Anonymous TIP
Line at (650) 952-2244.

Redwood City Water can qualify for rebates
of up to $1,000 for replacing lawns with
water-efficient plants.
“The Lawn Be Gone program not only

NEWYORK — The price of gasoline looks
familiar this Memorial Day. For the third
year in a row, the national average will be
within a penny or two of $3.64 per gallon.
Stability wasn’t always the norm.
Between 2003 and 2008 average retail gaso-
line prices more than doubled, reaching an
all-time high of $4.11 per gallon in 2008.
Prices then collapsed as the U.S. plunged
into recession. But after a two-year run-up
between 2009 and 2011, the price of gaso-
line has remained in a range of roughly
$3.25 to $3.75 per gallon.
Drivers can handle that, according to
AAA, and are ready to head out for Memorial
Day driving trips in the highest numbers
since 2005. “It is unlikely that gas prices
will have a significant effect on travel plans
compared to a year ago,” AAA wrote in its
annual Memorial Day forecast.
Steady gasoline prices are largely the
result of relatively steady crude oil prices,
even though there has been a long list of
global supply disruptions and political tur-
moil that that typically would push the price
of oil higher. Sanctions have sharply cut
output from Iran, once the world’s third
largest oil exporter. Libya went through
civil war, and labor and political disruptions
continue to limit its exports. Venezuela’s oil
output has been steadily declining for a
decade. Most recently, the conflict between
Russia and Ukraine is raising concerns that
sanctions will impact production or exports
from Russia, the world’s second largest
exporter after Saudi Arabia.
But rising crude output in countries such as
the U.S., Canada and Brazil have offset the
declining supply elsewhere, helping to keep
prices steady.
Approaching this Memorial Day, the
national average is $3.65 per gallon,
according to AAA, OPIS and Wright
Express. Last year on the holiday it was
$3.63 per gallon. In 2012 it was $3.64.
The story is similar with other fuels.
Through the first quarter of this year airlines
are paying $3.03 per gallon for jet fuel —
exactly the same they paid on average for all
of last year, according to the Bureau of
Transportation Statistics. The average price
of diesel, $3.93 per gallon, is a nickel high-
er than last year.
Gasoline prices have familiar look as summer nears
California drivers are paying the most in the lower 48 states, at $4.15 per gallon, about 10
cents higher than last Memorial Day weekend.

WASHINGTON — Congress sent the
White House a $12.3 billion water projects
bill half the size of its last one seven years
ago — before the economy sank into a deep
recession that helped swell the government’s
debt and before lawmakers swore off cherry-
picking pet projects for folks back home.
With a 91-7 vote Thursday, the Senate
passed the bill authorizing 34 new projects
over the next 10 years. The House passed it
Tuesday after key lawmakers spent six
months blending separate House and Senate
versions approved last year.
The bill authorizes big new flood control
projects for Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Fargo,
North Dakota, and dredging and harbor
expansions in Boston and Savannah,
Georgia. But it also puts an end to $18 bil-
lion in dormant projects that Congress had
passed before the last round of $23.3 billion
in water projects was approved in 2007.
The new measure’s reduced cost reflects a
conscious effort by lawmakers to rein in
spending, particularly in the House, where
Republicans first elected in 2010 or 2012
balked at new spending. All of the projects
included in the legislation came at the recom-
mendation of the Army Corps of Engineers.
Some conservative and watchdog groups
complained the bill was still bloated with
unnecessary spending. But it had widespread
support from state and local officials and
business groups like the U.S. Chamber of
Commerce as legislation that will produce
jobs and enhance commerce.
California counties sue
over painkiller marketing
SAN FRANCISCO — Two California
counties have filed a lawsuit accusing five
drug companies of waging a campaign of
deception to boost the sales of painkillers
behind the nation’s prescription drug addic-
tion problem.
Orange and Santa Clara counties filed the
suit Wednesday in Orange County Superior
Court, alleging false advertising, unfair
competition and creating a public nuisance.
Much like the legal attack on tobacco
companies two decades ago by many states,
the current lawsuit accuses the drug manu-
facturers of making misleading and false
claims about the safety of products con-
sumed annually by millions of Americans.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the
entire state of California and seeks to stop
the marketing campaigns involving opi-
oid-based painkillers and demands unspeci-
fied compensation for alleged damage to
public health and patients.
Kashkari far outpaces
Donnelly in cash on hand
SACRAMENTO — Gubernatorial candi-

cials and mailers to raise his visibility. His
latest campaign finance filings show he has
raised $4 million for his campaign. Half of

Effa-Jean Arms
February 9, 1917 - May 5, 2014
Resident of Cupertino
With her family by her side, Effa-Jean (Effie) Arms of Cupertino passed away early
Monday, May 5, 2014. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Richard A.
Arms of 83 years and their sweet daughter, Susan of 3 years.
Effie is survived by two of her three children, Sherrill Arms and Audrene (Arms)
Rossi with spouse, Thomas Rossi; grandchildren Lamar Baker and Shannon Sackett
with spouse, Eric; great-grandchildren, Madison and Riley; and many nephews and nieces.
Effa-Jean Arms was born in Palo Alto, CA. to Villa Amos and Victor Lightbody.
She was sister to Lola, Elinor and Mildred. She graduated from Sequoia High School,
Redwood City, CA. Effie would catch the bus from Menlo Park to Albany, CA. to play
violin in the symphony; she graduated from beauty school and established herself as
a well-known beautician on University Avenue in downtown Palo Alto. She met her
husband, Dick on a blind date in San Francisco and they were married in 1939. Effie
and her husband (the 5th employee of Hewlett Packard), made their home in Menlo
Park where they raised their family.
In 1975, Effa-Jean and Dick retired to their beloved Sierras to enjoy over 20 years
of living on the Yuba River in Sierra City. They loved riding snow-mobiles in the snow,
fishing, gardening, appreciating nature and volunteering. Effie won an award at the
Sacramento State Fair for her beautiful, handmade, king-size quilt. She enjoyed all
kinds of needlework, while Dick would recycle materials making fishing lures and
other novelties. In later years, Effie devoted herself to being the sole caregiver to her
husband prior to his death. They were married for 61 years. After 2000, Effie returned
to the Bay Area to be closer to family.
Our family wishes to thank Optimal Hospice Care and especially Effie’s friends
and caregivers at The Forum for their friendship, understanding and loving care. Effie
knew she was safe with all of you, she trusted you and you made her happy--that gave
her peace. In loving memory, she is forever in our hearts.
As Effa-Jean wished, no services were held. Any memorial contributions in her
honor can be made to Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital or Optimal Hospice Care.

WASHINGTON — In an overwhelming
vote, the House moved the U.S. closer to
ending the National Security Agency’s bulk
collection of Americans’ phone records
Thursday, the most significant demonstra-
tion to date of leaker Edward Snowden’s
impact on the debate over privacy versus
But the final version of the legislation,
“watered down” in the words of one support-
er, also showed the limits of that impact. The
bill was severely weakened to mollify U.S.
intelligence agencies, which insisted that
the surveillance programs that shocked
many Americans are a critical bulwark
against terror plots.
The bill was approved 303-121, which
means that most House members can now
say they voted to end what many critics con-
sider the most troubling practice Snowden
disclosed — the collection and storage of
U.S. calling data by the secretive intelli-
gence agency. But almost no other major
provision designed to restrict NSA surveil-
lance, including limits on the secret court
that grants warrants to search the data, sur-
vived the negotiations to get the bill to the
House floor.
And even the prohibition on bulk collec-
tion of Americans’ communications records
has been called into question by some
activists who say a last-minute change in
wording diminished what was sold as a ban.
“People will say, ‘We did something, and
isn’t something enough,”’ said Steven
Aftergood, who tracks intelligence issues for
the Federation of American Scientists. “But

uncertainties that generated the whole con-
Though some privacy activists continued
to back the bill, others withdrew support, as
did technology companies such as Google
and Facebook.
Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan, the
Republican chairman of the House
Intelligence Committee, said, “I believe this

core function of a counterterrorism program

from” records of nearly every American land-
line telephone call under a program that
searched the data for connections to terrorist
plots abroad.
The phone records program was revealed

SANTAANA — ACalifornia woman who
says she was kidnapped a decade ago by her
mother’s boyfriend lived a seemingly ordi-
nary life with her alleged captor year after
year, but she was too scared to go to author-
ities until she recently reunited with her
mother, police said Thursday.
The woman, who disappeared when she
was 15, eventually married the man and
started a family with him. Neighbors said
she took Zumba classes and went on trips to
the beach and Disneyland.
Orange County prosecutors on Thursday
filed five felony charges against the alleged
abductor, Isidro Garcia, including rape and
kidnapping to commit a sexual offense. He
did not enter a plea, and his arraignment was
continued until June 9. He was jailed on $1
million bail.
Garcia’s attorney said the woman’s claims
of physical and sexual abuse are lies made
up because the couple is separating.
Neighbors in a working-class city south of
Los Angeles described an outwardly happy
family, while authorities and psychologists
cautioned that both could be true — Garcia
could have been a doting husband who con-
trolled his wife without physically restrain-
ing her through years of abuse.
The case began to emerge Monday, when
the woman went two blocks from her apart-
ment complex to the police department in
working-class Bell Gardens and accused
Garcia of domestic violence. During that
conversation, officers learned of her con-
nection to a 2004 missing-persons case in
Santa Ana, about 20 miles away.
Santa Ana police interviewed both Garcia,
41, and the woman and concluded that the
husband had been sexually abusing her a
decade ago and kidnapped her after a fight
with her mother, who was his girlfriend at
the time.
After holding her captive, Garcia moved
at least four times and gave her multiple
fake identities to hide her from family and
authorities, Santa Ana Police Cpl. Anthony
Bertagna said.
Garcia and the woman both worked for a
janitorial company cleaning a building that
houses some offices of the Los Angeles
County Department of Children and Family
Mother persuaded kidnapped woman to go to police
“People will say,‘We did something, and isn’t
something enough. ... But this bill doesn’t fundamentally
resolve the uncertainties that generated the whole controversy.”

FRANKFURT, Germany — European
Parliament elections have been sedate
affairs in the past but this week’s voting
has the potential to shake things up — par-
ticularly national governments’ approaches
to cutting debt and spurring growth.
Parties that oppose bringing the 28
European Union nations closer together are
being buoyed by protest votes and econom-
ic misery in the wake of the continent’s
slowly healing debt crisis. They’re expect-
ed to get up to 30 percent of the vote that
began Thursday in some nations and ends
That won’t change much at the 751-seat
parliament that meets in Brussels and
Strasbourg, France. But a strong anti-EU
protest vote could hurt the credibility of
national governments and their efforts to
cut debt, rein in spending and promote
growth through often politically difficult
“The results in France, Italy and Greece
will be very important as they could again
derail national politics and policies, giving
rise to renewed discussions and controver-
sies about austerity, reforms and debt sus-
tainability,” said analyst Carsten Brzeski at
Indebted governments are trying to hold
down spending and, with varying degrees of
enthusiasm, make their economies more
business-friendly by clearing away excess
regulation, taxation and protections for
established workers.
While those efforts — along with easy
monetary policy from the European Central
Bank and the U.S. Federal Reserve — have
helped calm markets, the budget cutbacks
and tax increases have also hurt the incomes
of ordinary people in the short term, raising
unemployment and slowing the recovery.
It’s the first EU election after the disas-
trous eurozone debt crisis that started in late
2009. But economists caution that the
vote’s impact on the parliament itself is
likely to be limited as anti-EU forces will
remain in the minority and have struggled
to coordinate their policies. The parliament
can’t itself initiate legislation and is con-
fined to reviewing and amending proposals
from the European Commission, the EU’s
executive branch.
EU elections become platformfor austerity foes
Socialist Prime Minister Manuel Valls is trying to get a stagnant
economy moving,pushing unpopular spending cuts so he can
lower business taxes. A poor showing by the Socialists in the
European Parliament vote could undermine his backing from
the more left-wing Socialists and make it harder for Valls to
achieve his aims. France’s economy, Europe’s second-largest,
failed to grow in the first quarter, one reason the continent’s
recovery is so muted.
PrimeMinister MatteoRenzi of thecenter-left DemocraticParty
faces his first major electoral test since taking office in February.
Renzi is trying to shake up Italy’s bloated bureaucracy and
reform its cumbersome electoral laws.
“His opponents, both within and outside his own party, could
use a poor result to water down his reform efforts,”says James
Howat, European economist for Capital Economics.
Italy’s economy has been a drag on the 18-country euro
currency union where it is the third largest: output declined
byaquarterlyrateof 0.1percent inthefirst threemonths of the
year. Without growth, Italy will struggle to reduce its massive
debt load, which amounts to 133 percent of the country’s
annual national income. At the height of the financial crisis,
there were fears Italy might default on its debt, a move that
could have caused the eurozone to break up.
The voting gives an opening and a platform for the left-wing
Syriza party, which calls Sunday’s vote a referendum on the
country’s bailout and its conservative-led government.
Syriza’s leader, Alexis Tsipras, says he wants to tear up Greece’s
bailout deal with the other eurozone countries and the
International Monetary Fund.He is the Europe-wide candidate
put forward by left-wing parties to head the EU’s executive
Greece promised to cut spending to qualify for bailout loans
fromitsinternational creditorsthat preventedGreece’sfinancial
collapseandapossibleexit fromtheeurozone.But theausterity
policies worsened Greece’s recession, which shrank the
economy 25 percent and left unemployment at a miserable
26.7 percent — and an astonishing 56.8 percent for those
between 15 and 24 years old.
Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’ struggling Socialist coalition
partner, Pasok, could perform poorly in local and European
elections this week, undermining the government. Opinion
polls suggest that Syriza could win a general election.
Holger Schmieding, chief economist at Berenberg Bank in
London, said that outcome “would create huge political
uncertainty with a serious negative impact on the Greek
economy and possibly some ramifications around Europe.”
A good showing by the UK Independence Party — normally
Nigel Farage could increase business concerns about Britain
leaving the EU over the long term.
Farage’spartyhasbeenpushingfor areferendumonthat topic.
“If everyone shrugs it off”as a protest vote “then the economic
impact is zero,”said Schmieding.“If that gets us into a serious
debate over, ‘Do we change our domestic policies?,’ then of
course that could have an impact.”
What’s at stake in some countries
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee has
decided how it will respond to a nationwide
scarcity of lethal injection drugs for death-
row inmates: with the electric chair.
Republican Gov. Bill Haslam signed a bill
into law Thursday allowing the state to elec-
trocute death row inmates in the event pris-
ons are unable to obtain the drugs, which
have become more and more scarce follow-
ing a European-led boycott of drug sales for
executions. Tennessee lawmakers over-
whelmingly passed the electric chair legisla-
tion in April, with the Senate voting 23-3
and the House 68-13 in favor of the bill.
Richard Dieter, the executive director of
the Death Penalty Information Center, said
Tennessee is the first state to enact a law to
reintroduce the electric chair without giving
prisoners an option.
“There are states that allow inmates to
choose, but it is a very different matter for a
state to impose a method like electrocution,”
he said. “No other state has gone so far.”
Dieter said he expects legal challenges to
arise if the state decides to go through with
an electrocution, both on the grounds of
whether the state could prove that lethal
injection drugs were not obtainable and con-
stitutional protections against cruel and
unusual punishment.

WASHINGTON — The House defied the
Pentagon on Thursday, overwhelmingly
backing a $601 billion defense authorization
bill that saves the Cold War-era U-2 spy
plane, military bases and Navy cruisers
despites warnings that it will undercut mili-
tary readiness.
AWhite House veto threat — reiterated just
hours before the vote — had little impact in
an election year as lawmakers embraced the
popular measure that includes a 1.8 percent
pay raise for the troops and adds up to hun-
dreds of thousands of jobs back home. The
vote was 325-98 for the legislation, with
216 Republicans and 109 Democrats backing
the bill.
Hours later, the leaders of the Senate Armed
Services Committee announced the comple-
tion of its version of the bill that backs sev-
eral of the Pentagon proposals while break-
ing with the administration on some
Most notably, the Senate panel “created a
path to close Guantanamo,” said the commit-
tee’s chairman, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., a
long-sought goal of President Barack
Obama. Under a provision of the bill, the
administration would have to produce a com-
prehensive plan for transferring terror sus-
pects from the U.S. naval facility in Cuba
that would be subject to a congressional
The Senate panel backed the administration
on some personnel benefits and a 1 percent pay
raise for the military, while breaking with the
administration by sparing the A-10 Warthog
close-support plane and an aircraft carrier.
Certain to frustrate the administration was
a provision that would authorize the military
to train and equip vetted Syrian rebels bat-
tling forces loyal to President Bashar Assad.
The Senate bill must be reconciled with the
House version.
Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif.,
chairman of the House Armed Services
Committee, defended his House bill and
rejected the suggestion that the measure was a
“sop to parochial interests,” arguing it
makes “the tough decisions that put the
troops first.”
But the panel’s top Democrat, Rep. Adam
Smith of Washington state, complained that
the House rejected the Pentagon’s cost-sav-
ing proposals and came up with no alterna-
“We ducked every difficult decision,” Smith
With the ending of two wars and diminish-
ing budgets, the Pentagon had proposed
retiring the U-2 and the A-10, taking 11 Navy
cruisers out of the normal rotation for mod-
ernization and increasing out-of-pocket
costs for housing and health care.

to Congress demanding deep cuts in federal
spending, and Democrats rejected the

A win for San
Mateo County taxpayers
I believe that the voters of San
Mateo County have the rare oppor-
tunity to bring in a highly-quali-
fied CPAto serve as the controller,
while keeping the assistant con-
troller as well.
They both clearly want to do the
work. They both have ideas about
how the work of the Controller’s
Office can be more valuable to the
county and the citizens. One brings a
fresh, outside, professional perspec-
tive and the other brings the under-
standing of how the office works now
and how to work with other depart-
ments. We can elect Galligan to serve
as controller and keep Raigoza as
assistant controller. I really think
that the taxpayers win.

Letters to the editor
ypically, a decision to replace
a bridge in a city would be
straightforward. But Half
Moon Bay is no typical city.
The City Council received a report
that it’s Main Street Bridge needed to
be replaced and also received a federal
grant to pay for nearly all the con-
struction. The council voted to pro-
ceed in September 2013. Full speed
ahead right?
Not so fast. Concerns were immedi-
ately raised about the historic struc-
ture of the bridge, the size of the
replacement and just how merchants
on Main Street would survive during
construction when the primary road
from State Route 92 would be unavail-
able. These are all valid concerns.
However, these valid concerns
would also be addressed in the envi-
ronmental impact report necessitated
by the California Environmental
Quality Act and the National
Environmental Policy Act.
Both are stringent acts that outline
a fairly extensive procedure in which
a particular project is analyzed in a
scope of ways and alternatives are
identified that would mitigate whatev-
er impact the initial project may
have. Some of those impacts would be
noise, the habitat below the bridge,
the construction impact and the size
of the structure.
So essentially, the City Council
would embark on this process and
ultimately identify a project alterna-
tive that would ameliorate the con-
cerns brought up by the engaged pop-
ulace. The issue at hand, however, is
that there has been a fractured trust in
the process that began once the coun-
cil voted the way it did and paraded
renderings that seemed entirely too
large for those who depend on the
type of access to which they have
been accustomed. Thus this ballot
tandem that will essentially either
allow the city to move ahead with its
plans that will receive the full scruti-
ny of those directly affected and con-
cerned about the impact or require a
public vote before any change is made
to the 103-year-old bridge.
Immersed in the language in each
measure is the primary tenet of an
elected body, which is to make deci-
sions it feels is best for its citizenry.
Voting yes on F will remove that abil-
ity for this particular bridge and for-
ever tie the council’s hands when it
comes to making decisions about it.
That means if the boarded sidewalk
were to be damaged and need repair or
if the structure were to be damaged
somehow, it would take a vote of the
people to make any repairs or
changes. Limiting the ability of a
council to oversee a piece of infra-
structure is a dangerous proposition
when it serves such a utilitarian role
in a community. It is not a building,
it is a piece of a road that is critical
for the city’s downtown.
Opponents of the city’s plans for
the bridge bring up significant and
revealing points and it is likely that
the community concern and this bal-
lot fight has forever changed the
direction of this project. The City
Council should listen to the commu-
nity concerns and forge ahead with
the CEQAand NEPAprocess in a
deliberate and thorough way. During
that process, the City Council should
ensure that whatever historical prop-
erties of this bridge be maintained as
well as they can, while also ensuring
that the size is right and the closure
period is minimized. Ultimately, it is
the council’s responsibility to ensure
the bridge is safe.
The only way this can happen, of
course, is for more voters to say yes
to Measure E, which would allow the
city to proceed with its process in
determining which project is best
suited for its community. That is its
charge and ultimate responsibility
and it is the citizens’ responsibility
to hold it to account during the
process required by law to find the
best project for all.
In Half Moon Bay — yes on E, no on F
Memorial Day
had never been to a military funeral before but had
seen them on TV and certainly read about them.
This week, I experienced my first one for Belton P.
Mouras, my grandfather.
I had not known him for much of my life as he
divorced my grandmother with three daughters at a
young age. He went on to have another family, who I
also did not know.
I had met him a few times and re-established a connec-
tion when I visited his Sacramento home when I returned
to California after college.
After the visit, he sent me a
thank-you note with a $100
bill to help me with my transi-
tion. Unexpected, and nice. On
our occasional visits after he
would flesh out the lore that
had been established by other
family. Yes, he was born in the
bayou of Louisiana and only
spoke Cajun French until he
was 8. Yes, he had a Purple
Heart and an oak leaf cluster.
Yes, he had a Bronze Star.
He joined the military at the
age of 16 and became a paratrooper. He was in the mili-
tary for 20 years and retired to become a leader in the
American humane movement as founder of the Animal
Protection Institute. This was a lifelong legacy for him
and he often peppered his stories with anecdotes of con-
gressional hearings to fight for animal rights. He was
proud of his work and authored several books on animal
welfare. This effort had a lasting impression on me and
often imbued my sensibility when it came to animals.
I like to think that our society has made significant
progress when it comes to animal welfare and that my
grandfather had a hand in that from the 1960s to today.
In recent years, my visits became more frequent in
part because his health was declining and because of the
urging of my mother who was deepening her relation-
ship with him. My mother, a retired nurse, often calls
upon her medical expertise in times of need and has a
quiet but steadfast calm to her.
My recent conversations with him were light and
oscillated from his wild gambling stories and his one-
time ignorance of fancy table settings to his inquiries
about the news business. I’m glad my mother was able
to deepen her relationship with her father and that I was
able to make a connection in his last months.
The funeral was pageantry, with three rifle volleys
fired into the air, the playing of Taps and two soldiers
folding the American flag he had fought so hard to pro-
tect. I couldn’t help to think of his age, 90, and that he
is of the last of those who fought in World War II. The
Greatest Generation is dying and leaving us with their
memory, their lessons and their legacy.
Memorial Day is reserved for those who died in serv-
ice of their country. Veterans Day is reserved for those
who served their country in the military. I know that.
But this Memorial Day, I will fly the flag in honor of
Belton P. Mouras.
This weekend marks the official dedication of the John
Lee Memorial Dog Park at Bayside Joinville Park. Lee,
the former mayor of San Mateo, died in 2012 at the age
of 81. He was a former Marine captain with a sometimes
brusque demeanor that hid a heart of gold. He was also
fond of his dogs, thus the idea of naming the dog park
after him. His good friend Dan Ionescu worked to estab-
lish the memorial gate and flagpole at the site, which
will be dedicated 11 a.m. Saturday at 2111 Kehoe Ave.

Big movers
By Alex Veiga
Stocks got off to a good start
Thursday and held onto their gains,
carving out a modest increase for the
second day in a row.
During a relatively slow week, stock
investors drew encouragement from
some positive news on the economy
and housing. Improving earnings from
Dollar Tree, Best Buy and other retail-
ers also helped the market.
Major U.S. indexes appeared headed
for a slight rise even before trading
began. Asurvey from HSBC suggested
a slowdown in China’s economy was
flattening, and May’s reading on
China’s manufacturing sector was the
best in five months.
“A revival in China is good for
emerging markets, good for global
growth and therefore good for stocks,
and not so hot for bonds,” said Krishna
Memani, chief investment officer at
Oppenheimer Funds.
Investors received more good news
after the U.S. market opened. The
Conference Board said its index of lead-
ing economic indicators posted a solid
gain in April. The gauge, designed to
predict the economy’s future health,
provided more evidence that growth
strengthened after a severe winter
slowed business.
AU.S. government report showing a
rise in the number of people seeking
unemployment benefits last week did-
n’t dampen the market’s rise. Nor did
the latest sales data for previously
occupied U.S. homes, which rose mod-
estly on a monthly basis in April, but
was down from a year earlier, according
to the National Association of
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
rose 4.46 points, or 0.2 percent, to
close at 1,892.49. The index is up 2.4
percent for the year.
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 10.02 points, or 0.1 percent, to
end at 16,543.08. The Nasdaq compos-
ite index added 22.80 points, or 0.6
percent, to finish at 4,154.34.
The Dow and Nasdaq remain down
slightly for 2014.
Small-company stocks also extended
their prior-day rally, pushing the
Russell 2000 index up 10.24 points, or
0.9 percent, to 1,113.87.
Major indexes have finished slightly
higher in four of the last five trading
days. The gains have nudged the S&P
500 index, which hit a high early last
week, up 0.8 percent for this week.
Bond prices fell slightly Thursday.
The yield on the 10-year Treasury note
edged up to 2.55 percent from 2.54 per-
cent late Wednesday.
Among the biggest variables influ-
encing the markets this year have been
uncertainty over when U.S. growth will
accelerate and concern that China’s
growth is slowing.
The latest batch of economic and
earnings data suggest the global econ-
omy is recovering, albeit slowly.
“I do expect us to see a continued
recovery, but it’s not going to be dra-
matic and therefore I don’t look for any
big dramatic moves in the market
either,” said Chris Gaffney, a senior
market strategist at EverBank Wealth
Several U.S. retailers had a good day.
Best Buy rose 87 cents, or 3.4 per-
cent, to $26.22 after its earnings came
in well ahead of what investors were
looking for, while L Brands, which
owns store brands such as Bath and
Body Works and Victoria’s Secret, rose
83 cents, or 1.5 percent, to $56.69.
Apickup in spending by shoppers at
Dollar Tree helped boost the discount
store operator’s income in its latest
quarter. Its stock gained $3.31, or 6.6
percent, to $53.31, the biggest gain in
the S&P 500 index.
Sears Holdings reported a wider quar-
terly loss as sales slumped. Its shares
were down for much of the day, but
recovered by late afternoon. Sears rose
$1.54, or 4.2 percent, to $38.10.
The latest home sales figures helped
lift most of the major U.S. home-
builders. Beazer Homes USA led the
pack, rising 90 cents, or nearly 5 per-
cent, to $19.08.
Economic data on U.S., China boost stocks
By Mae Anderson
NEW YORK — Is America’s love affair
with gadgets fading?
Best Buy and Sears on Thursday both
blamed their weak quarterly results on the
fact that shoppers aren’t shelling out for
consumer electronics.
Already squeezed by tough competition
from online retailers like Amazon.com and
discount stores like Wal-Mart and Target,
retailers like Best Buy and Sears have been
cutting costs and revamping merchandise
and store formats to attract customers.
But the consumer electronics remains
stagnant. Sales haven’t budged from about
$145 billion in three of the last four years,
according to research firm NPD Group.
Part of the problem is consumers are hold-
ing out for smartphone and tablet computer
launches this fall. Apple and Samsung are
expected to debut new products and an
Amazon smartphone is rumored to be in the
pipeline. Meanwhile, experts say things
like the ultra-high definition 4K TVs have
not been compelling enough for TV owners
to upgrade.
“The category was weak. There’s no ‘Wow’
type product to get people in stores or even
online,” said Brian Sozzi of Belus Capital
One exception: trendy products like wear-
able fitness devices. Sozzi said they’re “in
demand, but not as in demand as you think.”
The result is weak sales. Best Buy said rev-
enue fell 3 percent to $9.04 billion during
the quarter that ended May 4. And revenue in
stores open at least 14 months, a key retail
metric, declined 1.9 percent. The company
expects the metric to decline in the next two
quarters as well.
“As we look forward to the second and
third quarters we are expecting to see ongo-
ing industrywide sales decline in many of
the consumer electronics categories in
which we compete,” said Best Buy CFO
Sharon McCollam. “We are also expecting
ongoing softness in the mobile phone cate-
gory as consumers eagerly await highly
anticipated new product launches.”
Sears, meanwhile, said TVsales were espe-
cially weak during the quarter, particularly at
Kmart. Revenue in stores open at least one
year edged up 0.2 percent at Sears stores but
fell 2.2 percent at Kmart, and weak con-
sumer electronic sales contributed to more
than 1 percentage point of that drop.
“The biggest negative contributor to sales
has been from our consumer electronics
business at both Sears and Kmart,” said bil-
lionaire hedge fund investor Eddie Lampert,
who is Sears’ Chairman and CEO in a prere-
corded call. “To address this decline, we are
moving this business from a focus on sell-
ing televisions to a company empowering
‘connected living,’ which will bring togeth-
er our capabilities in fitness equipment,
electronics, appliances, home services, and
auto services.”
Stephen Baker, an NPD consumer technol-
ogy analyst, says unless a new game-chang-
ing product like the iPad is introduced, con-
sumer electronics sales are unlikely to budge
“It’s a pretty mature category, and for
every great opportunity like 4k TVs or touch
notebooks there are continued declines in
cameras, small screen TVs, or desktop com-
puters,” he said. “Right now, there isn’t
anything that can provide $5, $6 or $7 bil-
lion in incremental sales for the industry and
when you’re a $145 billion industry that’s
what you need to move the battleship.”
Weak electronics sales pressure Best Buy, Sears
Gap’s first-quarter net
income declines 22 percent
NEWYORK — Gap said that its first-
quarter profit fell 22 percent, as the
clothing chain’s results were hampered
by foreign currency fluctuations and a
slow start to spring selling.
Nevertheless, the San Francisco-
based retailer, which operates stores
under the Gap, Old Navy, Banana
Republic and Athleta names, reiterated
its annual profit outlook.
“After a disappointing start, I’m
pleased with how the business per-
formed toward the end of the quarter,
especially at Old Navy,” said Glenn
Murphy, chairman and CEO of Gap Inc.
in a statement.
Like many retailers, Gap’s business in
the first quarter was hurt by heavy dis-
counting to bring in customers who
stayed away amid wintry weather earlier
in the year. Murphy also acknowledged
in an earnings call with investors that
the fashions were a “little too spring
forward.” Still, it’s faring better than
rivals like American Eagle Outfitters
Inc., which saw its quarterly earnings
tumble 86 percent on huge markdowns
intended to generate foot traffic.
American Eagle said earlier in the week
that it would close 150 stores over the
next three years.
But Gap’s hiccup in the quarter under-
score the challenges that the company
faces in keeping the momentum going
since enjoying a turnaround starting in
early 2012. Gap has been stepping up
its marketing and offering trendier mer-
Gap is also expanding outside the
U.S. It announced last month it plans to
more than triple sales in China in three
years as it seeks to grab a bigger piece
of the overall $1.4 trillion global cloth-
ing market. It generated $300 million in
sales in China in the latest fiscal year
ended Feb. 1. It says China will be its
biggest growth initiative.
HP to cut 11,000
to 16,000 more jobs
LOS ANGELES — Hewlett-Packard
Co. said Thursday that it aims to cut
another 11,000 to 16,000 jobs by
October, bringing the total number of
planned layoffs to a maximum of
50,000 and nearly doubling the largest
payroll reduction ever for the 75-year-
old technology giant.
HP’s move revises upward a previous
target of 34,000 job cuts. In May 2012,
eight months after former eBay Inc.
CEO Meg Whitman took the reins, HP
unveiled the chief executive’s initial
restructuring plan, which called for a
headcount reduction of 27,000.
When the program was first
announced, the company had nearly
350,000 employees. As of October, it
had 317,500.
Whitman said the extra cuts are being
made because the company sees further
opportunity to cut costs, not because of
a forecast decline in demand.
“I would say I’m feeling more confi-
dent because we have seen a stabiliza-
tion of revenue,” she told analysts on a
conference call. “The high single-digit
declines are over.”
She also said she doesn’t anticipate
further cuts.

Giants recall George Kontos
Friday • May 23, 2014
By Dick Scanlon
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — It took the
Tampa Bay Rays 11 innings into the third
game of the series to come through with a
big hit against the Oakland Athletics.
Sean Rodriguez hit a three-run home run
with two out in the 11th Thursday to lift the
Rays to a 5-2 victory that ended their four-
game losing streak — and Oakland’s five-
game winning streak.
“I wouldn’t say it would have been the end
of the world if we’d have lost that one, but
the morale would have been a little lower, ”
said Alex Cobb, who pitched 6 2-3 shutout
innings in his first start since April 12. “It
was a huge win for us. For Roddy to go off in
that fashion and deliver that to us is a big
boost that is very welcome.”
Rodriguez’s team-leading fifth homer
came off Luke Gregerson after Desmond
Jennings’ two-out single had tied it against
Dan Otero (4-1).
“It was obviously good to get a win after
the fact that we were able to go that many
innings with the pitchers throwing as well
as they did,” Rodriguez said.
Yeonis Cespedes’ sacrifice fly had given
the A’s a 2-1 lead in the top of the 11t h.
Cespedes also drove in the first Oakland run
with an RBI double in the ninth off Rays
closer Grant Balfour.
Josh Lueke (1-2) got the win after one
inning of relief for the Rays, who had
scored only four runs during their four-game
losing streak.
“It was great for our guys to do that,” said
manager Joe Maddon. “We needed some kind
of a boost all night and we were foiled in our
The Athletics lost for only the second
time in 13 games.
“It’s always nice to win a series, but when
you’ve won two and you’re ahead, not being
able to close it out is a little disappoint-
ing,” said A’s manager Bob Melvin. “But
you pick up and go on to tomorrow. ”
Yunel Escobar drove in the Rays’ first run
with a single in the seventh off Oakland
starter Sonny Gray, who pitches eight
innings and reduced his league-leading
earned run average to 1.99.

Kyle Cambron fired his eighth consecutive complete game Thursday to lead Sequoia to a
5-2 win in the Central Coast Section Division I opener. Pictured in a non-league game earlier
this year, the senior tabbed a season-high eight strikeouts Thursday against Fremont.
By Terry Bernal
Kyle Cambron just keeps getting it done.
Sequoia’s big right-hander fired his
eighth straight complete game Thursday to
lead the No. 3-seed Cherokees (20-7-1) to a
5-2 win over No. 14 Fremont (15-12) in the
opening round of the Central Coast Section
Division I playoffs.
This one was a little different for
Cambron though, and not merely because
it was a playoff game. After battling an ear
infection all week, the senior said he
never doubted he’d take the ball for
Sequoia’s first CCS playoff home game in
20 years. However, what he did question
was whether or not his clockwork
endurance would hold up.
But with brow dripping sweat and uni-
form soaked through and through in the
seventh inning, Cambron was a picture of
fiery emotion as he closed it out by notch-
ing his season-high eighth strikeout, giv-
ing Sequoia its first win in a CCS playoff
game since 1998.
“It was a great feeling to get that last
out,” Cambron said. “It was the first CCS
win for Sequoia in a long time. So, it felt
really good to be a part of that.”
Cambron allowed a first-inning run on a
balk to plate Firebirds leadoff hitter Nick
Del Rosario, but buckled down from there.
The senior allowed two runs on five hits
and walked just one to improve his record
to 11-1.
“He actually decided to use four pitches
today instead of his usual two,” Sequoia
catcher Chris Ortiz said. “So, he had an
extra slider and a changeup going today.
His slider was on point. That was his
strikeout pitch.”
The Cherokees bounced right back from
the early deficit in support of Cambron,
scratching out a run in the first before tak-
ing the lead on an RBI single by Jarrett
Crowell in the second. Sequoia went on to
score two in the inning then two more in
the third and led the rest of the way.
Sequoia tabbed seven hits throughout
Cambron goes distance again
HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Patrick Rodgers
heads to wind-swept Prairie Dunes this
weekend in the rarest of company.
He’s intent on joining a club entirely of
his own.
With a victory at the NCAA champi-
onships, Rodgers can break a tie with Tiger
Woods for the most wins in Stanford histo-
ry. The junior earned the 11th of his deco-
rated career during regional qualifying, giv-
ing the world’s top-
ranked amateur five wins
in his last six events.
“I’ve talked to him and
seen him throughout this
spring, and I’m telling
you, he’s going to try to
put this team on his back
to ride them to a national
championship,” said
Steve Burkowski, who
will help cover the championships for the

STANFORD — Landon Donovan, the most
accomplished player in American soccer
history, won’t be going to his fourth World
The 32-year-old attack-
er, who set the national
team record for goals and
assists while winning
five titles in Major
League Soccer, was
among seven players cut
Thursday when coach
Jurgen Klinsmann got
down to the 23-man limit
well before the June 2
“I was looking forward to playing in
Brazil and, as you can imagine, I am very
disappointed with today’s decision,”
Donovan said in a statement posted on
Facebook. “Regardless, I will be cheering
on my friends and teammates this summer,
and I remain committed to helping grow
soccer in the U.S. in the years to come.”
Defenders Brad Evans, Clarence Goodson
and Michael Parkhurst also were cut along
with midfielders Joe Corona and Maurice
Edu, and forward Terrence Boyd.
Just six players return from the 2010
team: goalkeepers Tim Howard and Brad
Guzan; midfielder Michael Bradley; forwards
Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey; and
defender DaMarcus Beasley, who is bidding
to become the first American to play in his
fourth World Cup.
Beasley and Donovan were teammates on
the U.S. team that finished fourth in the
1999 FIFAUnder-17 World Championship.
“Landon is my brother. I’ve known
Landon since I was 15. We’ve been through
a lot together,” Beasley said. “To not have
him there is difficult.”
Klinsmann had announced a preliminary
30-man roster on May 12 and training

Ace fires eighth straight CG to lead Sequoia to first CCS win since 1998
Patrick Rodgers
while every Cherokees batter reached base
in the game.
“All these guys are good hitters,” Ortiz
said. “They may not all get the opportuni-
ties they used to get but [batters at the bot-
tom of the order] could probably be top-of-
the-order or [middle-of-the-order] hitters for
almost any team on the Peninsula. We have
good hitters up and down our lineup.”
Behind the plate, Ortiz has been one of
the secrets to Cambron’s success on the
mound this season. The senior backstop has
caught Cambron since they were freshmen
on the Sequoia frosh-soph squad. But this
year the battery mates have taken their game
to the next level as — unlike most amateur
catchers — Ortiz calls his own pitches.
Sequoia manager Corey Uhalde
approached the astute Ortiz with the idea
toward the end of last season. Ortiz immedi-
ately warmed to the idea, and after calling
something of a gem in a simulated game,
Uhalde began handing the pitch-calling
reins to Ortiz.
“He’s someone who has got a future in
baseball,” Uhalde said. “And I thought he
could grow a lot as a baseball player if he
learned those situational things. … And it
just sort of added to the feel of a veteran team
that is experienced.”
Indeed, with a 12 seniors on the roster,
Sequoia will lose a majority of its current
squad next season. But if the Cherokees are
going to catch lightning in a bottle by mak-
ing a run at their first CCS title since 1994,
it’s going to be based on the special brand
of baseball they have generated around the
likes of Ortiz, Cambron and first baseman
Zane Gelphman — all of whom intend to
play together at the next level at Cabrillo
But Uhalde is taking advantage of the sen-
ior leadership while he can.
“[Ortiz] frees me up to do other stuff in the
dugout,” Uhalde said. “I don’t have to be at
the front of the dugout giving signals and
everything. So, it allows me to extend my
reach as a coach. It’s kind of a two-fold ben-
efit — developing him as someone who
understands the complexities of the game,
and it allows me to get to more people.”
After falling behind 1-0, Sequoia tied it up
in the bottom of the first. Tommy Lopiparo
was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning.
After the junior stole second, cleanup hitter
Liam Clifford came through with a clutch
two-out single to plate Lopiparo with the
tying run.
In the second, Sequoia took the lead by
generating a two-out rally via three infield
hits. With two outs, Carson Parodi shot a
line drive that winged off the glove of
Fremont starting pitcher Alex Bernauer for a
base hit. Lopiparo followed with a bounder
over the middle that went for a single, mov-
ing Parodi to second. Matt Lopez walked to
load the bases. Crowell followed with a slow
chopper to second for an RBI infield single
to score Parodi. Then Clifford walked to
force home Lopiparo, giving Sequoia a 3-1
In the third, the Cherokees added a pair of
insurance runs. Cameron Greenough walked
to lead off the inning and Gonzalo
Rodriguez shot a single to left to move him
to second. Ortiz then delivered an RBI sin-
gle with a blooper to right to score
Greenough. Parodi followed with a sacrifice
bunt attempt which Fremont catcher T. J.
Solomona threw errantly to first, allowing
Rodriguez to score, giving Sequoia a 5-1
Fremont added a run in the sixth when
senior right fielder Abe Arias launched a
solo home run to right, capping the day’s
For Fremont, it is the Sunnyvale school’s
third consecutive one-and-done CCS appear-
ance. But the Firebirds seem to be on an
upswing with first-year manager Pete
Hernandez at the helm. A graduate of
Fremont in 2000, Hernandez starting his
coaching career at Overfelt High School,
where he started the baseball program in
2008. After winning the Santa Teresa League
title in 2011, he returned to his alma mater
as an assistant coach before taking over as
manager in 2014.
“I had an opportunity to come work closer
to home,” Hernandez said. “What better way
than to go to your alma mater and try to get
that program on its feet, and get it in the
right direction.”
With the win, Sequoia moves on to
Saturday’s CCS quarterfinal against No. 6-
seed Christopher High School of Gilroy at a
time and place to be determined. The
Cherokees will give the ball to Greenough
for just his third start of the year, though he
punctuated the regular season May 8 with a
complete-game shutout of Woodside.
“[He’s] really turned it on the last couple
of weeks,” Uhalde said. “He has a lot of
potential. … He’s battled through some
injuries but he’s throwing the ball as well as
he ever has in the last couple weeks. So, I
feel good about him on Saturday. ”
Division I
Menlo-Atherton 2, Watsonville 1
No. 12-seeded Menlo-Atherton needed a
big performance to overcome No. 5
Watsonville on the road, and right-hander
Erik Amundson delivered.
The senior fired a one-hitter in the Central
Coast Section Division I opener Thursday at
Watsonville to lead the Bears to their first
CCS win since 2010. Amundson surrendered
one run on one hit on a second-inning RBI
double by Canek Gomez. M-A’s ace buckled
down from there, striking out 13 to improve
his record to 8-5.
Trailing 1-0, Menlo-Atherton rallied for
all the runs it would need in the third.
Charlie Cain led off the inning with a sin-
gle. After Amundson walked, both runners
advanced on a passed ball. Then with two
outs, Max Gardiner delivered a two-run sin-
gle to give the Bears a 2-1 lead.
The Menlo-Atherton defense committed
no errors in the game.
With the win, the Bears improve to 17-
12-1 overall. They advance to Saturday’s
quarterfinal matchup with North Salinas at
Hartnell College. First pitch is scheduled
for 2 p.m.
Wilcox 12, South City 2
As South City manager Jesse Velez
described it, the No. 16-seeded Warriors’
opener with No. 1 Wilcox (22-8) was a
Goliath vs. “the guys in blue” matchup.
Thursday, South City (15-14) succumbed
to the CCS Division I top seed with junior
ace Jesus Jimenez taking the loss.
The 2014 season saw an insurgence of
South City baseball. Playing out of the
revamped Peninsula Athletic League Lake
Division — a C-league — the Warriors
rolled to an undefeated 12-0 season in
league play, highlighted by a May 1 win
over division rival San Mateo as South City
won 3-1 in an extra-inning thriller.
Velez is poised to move his club up to the
PAL Ocean Division next season. And it
should prove perfect timing as the Warriors
stand to get both their ace pitchers Daniel
Perez and Jesus Jimenez back as seniors in
Perez posted a 5-5 record and paced the
team with a 1.62 ERA, 64 2/3 innings
pitched and 59 strikeouts this season.
Jimenez was also a force on the mound,
posting a 5-2 record with a 1.97 ERA and
striking out 57.
Jimenez, the Warriors’ top offensive
player, paced the team in almost every
offensive category with a .406 batting aver-
age, 39 hits, 16 RBIs, 12 doubles, two
triples (tied with two others), 23 runs and a
.572 slugging percentage.
South City graduates just five players
from the 2014 squad: Tyler Keahi, James
Felix, Isaiah Soto, Bryan Ortiz and Brandon
Division II
Branham 7, Sacred Heart Prep 6
Branaham (17-14) went up 5-0 in the sec-
ond inning Wednesday and held off a late
charge by Sacred Heart Prep (15-14), as the
Gators saw their season end on the road in
the CCS opener.
The Gators rallied for two runs in the sev-
enth to close to within a run, but Branaham
closer Arman Sabouri shut the door to send
the Bruins to Saturday’s quarterfinal
Saturday against top-seed Pacific Grove.
Kyle Johnston paced all SHP hitters with
three hits, while sophomore Andrew
Daschbach hit his team-best third home run
of the season in the seventh.

NEW YORK — A Norman Rockwell
painting of Boston Red Sox players has
sold to a private buyer for $22.6 million.
“The Rookie (Red Sox Locker Room)”
led the bidding Thursday at Christie’s auc-
tion of American art in New York.
“The Rookie” shows Hall of Famer Ted
Williams and other seasoned veterans as an
awkward newcomer arrives for spring training.
The painting appeared on the cover of the
Saturday Evening Post in 1957. An anony-
mous owner acquired it in 1986. It remained
in the same private collection since.
It was exhibited this month at Fenway
Park and the Museum of Fine Arts in
Boston. It was previously shown at the
museum in 2005 and 2008 following Red
Sox World Series victories.

FORT WORTH, Texas — Dustin Johnson
had played Colonial only once before, six
years ago when he didn’t even make it to the
final round.
In his return to Hogan’s Alley, Johnson
took a one-stroke lead after the first round.
Johnson shot a bogey-free 5-under 65 on
Thursday, driving a lot of 3-irons off the
tees into the fairways and hitting 16 of 18
greens in regulation.
“I’ve got to keep doing what I’m doing,”
Johnson said. “I’ve got a pretty good game
plan for the golf course off the tee. So I’m
going to stick to that, just trying to keep
getting birdie looks on every hole.”
His only birdie on the back nine was a 2-
footer at the 177-yard 16th hole. That was
enough to lead after his front-side 31 that
included a 45-foot birdie putt on the difficult
par-4 fifth hole.
Hunter Mahan, playing in the group ahead
of Johnson, led before a double-bogey 6 at
the 433-yard 18th hole for a 66. He was tied
for second with Harris English, Tim
Wilkinson and Robert Streb.
Jimmy Walker, a three-time winner this
season, and 20-year-old Dallas native
Jordan Spieth were in the group of 10 play-
ers at 67.
Mahan started eagle-birdie and was
already 6 under after a 3-foot birdie on the
178-yard eighth hole. He had two bogeys
and two more birdies before his drive at
the 18th hole into the right rough, with
trees blocking a clear shot to the green.
After punching the ball back into the fair-
way, his approach came settled on the
edge of the fringe and he eventually two-
putted from 7 feet.
Dustin Johnson shoots a 65,
leads by 1 stroke at Colonial
while striking out six
after spending 35 days on
the disabled list with a
strained left oblique. The
right-hander tied a fran-
chise record with his third
straight scoreless start.
“It felt like for a while
there might not be any
runs scored,” Melvin
said. “You’ve just got to
wait out the starting
pitcher and try to get to the bullpen.”
The Rays’ final out in the ninth came when
Jennings was caught stealing. The original
call of safe was overturned by a replay chal-
lenge that took two minutes and 13 seconds.
NOTES: Coco Crisp and Jed Lowrie
returned to the A’s lineup simultaneously
after missing games with sore necks.
Oakland lefty Scott Kazmir (5-1) will face

DENVER — The kid wanted to keep playing
even with the field a muddy mess and more rain
on the horizon.
Sorry, Nolan Arenado, maybe next time.
The game between the Colorado Rockies and
San Francisco Giants was suspended after the
second rain delay Thursday, with the score tied
2-2 in the bottom of the sixth inning.
A makeup date was still being determined.
The Giants next visit Coors Field on Sept. 1-3.
When the game resumes, though, the Rockies
will be at the plate with two outs and Michael
Cuddyer on first after his third single.
Had it been left up to Arenado, they would’ve
found a way to finish. But that’s just him.
“If it looked good, I wish we would’ve kept
playing,” Arenado said.
That’s the thing — the weather didn’t look
Although the skies looked less ominous, the
field was saturated. The grounds crew dumped
bags and bags of diamond dry on the infield just
to try and make it playable.
But after an 82-minute delay before the fourth
and another stoppage two innings later for 84
minutes, it was a big undertaking. The commis-
sioner’s office had finally seen enough and
informed crew chief Bill Miller to suspend it.
“The field took a lot of water,” Miller said in a
statement. “It was going to take 45 minutes to
get ready and another storm was forecast to hit.
... Both managers agreed it was best.”
No reason to risk injury, especially after the
Giants had two pitchers strain hamstrings the
day before — on a dry field, no less.
“It just made sense,” Giants manager Bruce
Bochy said. “This is the smartest thing to do.”
Wilin Rosario tied the game at 2 when he hit
into a double play in the fifth.
Hunter Pence had a solo homer for the Giants
in the fourth and Pablo Sandoval drove in
another run with a double later in the inning.
Sandoval also had a solo homer overturned by
a challenge in the second. He lined a shot down
the left-field line that was ruled a homer, sending
Sandoval trotting around the bases as left fielder
Corey Dickerson repeatedly pointed that the
ball was foul.
Manager Walt Weiss challenged the call and it
was changed. Sandoval stepped back into the
batter’s box and flew out to center.
“I didn’t think it was fair, but it was blowing
out,” Sandoval said. “That’s part of the game.”
Fans were ushered out of their seats and sent to
the concourse area as a storm rolled through the
city, complete with lightning, heavy rain and
even a brief tornado warning for the vicinity.
The second wave of weather wasn’t nearly as
Neither starter returned after the first stop-
Jorge De La Rosa was cruising along, too, not
allowing a hit and striking out three in three
innings. The hard-throwing lefty has been
bothered by a balky back and given the length
of the delay, the Rockies went to the bullpen.
He understood the decision.
“With this weather, I think it’s the best thing
they take me out,” said De La Rosa, who’s won
five straight decisions.
The Giants made the same call with Tim
Hudson, who went three innings and allowed
one run before exiting. Hudson missed his start
last Friday because of a strained left hip.
Plus, the elevation of the Mile High City was
getting to him.
“Ten days off not pitching at game speed can
be challenging from a stamina standpoint,”
Hudson said. “It’s kind of hard to catch your
breath out here, too.”
Hudson has never won at Coors Field.
“Still on my bucket list,” he said.
Cuddyer gave the Rockies a 1-0 lead in the
second when his two-out infield single drove in
Rosario. The Colorado lineup was missing
slugger Carlos Gonzalez, who sat out because of
a swollen left index finger.
“We did treatment during the game,” Gonzalez
said. “It’s making progress — slowly, but I
know it’s going to be fine.”

DENVER — The San
Francisco Giants have
placed right-hander
Santiago Casilla on the
15-day disabled list with
a right hamstring strain
and recalled George
Kontos from Triple-A
Fresno. Kontos is avail-
able to pitch against
Colorado on Thursday.
Casilla was injured run-
ning out a ground ball in the eighth inning of
Wednesday night’s 5-1 win
over the Rockies. Casilla
stumbled over first base and
fell to the ground in pain.
He was helped off the field.
Casilla had an MRI on
Wednesday night but man-
ager Bruce Bochy said the
results were not back.
Kontos was original-
ly recalled May 6 and
pitched in one game
before being optioned to Fresno on May
10. He is 0-2 with a 3.80 ERA in 14
games with the Grizzlies this season.
Giants place Santiago Casilla on DL,
recall journeyman RH George Kontos
Meanwhile, the individual title will
be decided Monday after 72 holes of
stroke play.
“I think it’s going to be a more excit-
ing golf course for match play than it is
stroke play, especially given that these
kids all hit it so far,” said Lanny
Wadkins, who played Prairie Dunes dur-
ing the 2006 U.S. Senior Open. “I think
that if a kid gets down early, he might
want to take some chances, and we might
see some exciting matches because of
that. ”
While a handful of schools are consid-
ered the front-runners, led by Alabama
after its 22-stroke victory at regionals,
there are some intriguing stories deeper
in the field.
Houston, which has a record 16 team
championships, has qualified for the
first time in 13 years, while Iowa State is
in the field for the first time since 1953.
“It’s pretty emotional and really spe-
cial,” Iowa State coach Andrew Tank said.
“It’s something as a team was our goal at
the beginning of the season. We knew we
could do it. But you never know how you
react once you actually achieve your
goal. It’s a great feeling.”
In the individual race, the Stanford duo
of Rodgers and Wilson will be pushed by
the Alabama trio of Robby Shelton,
Cory Whitsett and Trey Mul l i nax.
Shelton is ranked second to Rodgers in
the latest Golfweek/Sagarin collegiate
ranki ngs.
“This is a special group that really
likes to compete,” Crimson Tide coach
Jay Seawell said last week. “They’re
great players, obviously, but they have a
special bond and chemistry and work so
well together. That is really what makes
them special.”
Other individuals to watch include
Georgia Tech’s Ollie Schniederjans, Joey
Garber and Lee McCoy of Georgia, and
Wyndham Clark from Oklahoma State.
“All the teams have talent and the ones
at the top are especially deep,” said
Georgia coach Chris Haack, whose team
will be seeking its third national title.
“The player who claims medalist hon-
ors and the team that survives stroke
play and match play definitely will have
earned it. We’ve got a shot to be success-
ful but we know we have to be at our
best . ”
University’s football and soccer stadiums.
When they arrived for Thursday’s practice,
players had no idea this would be cutdown
day. Having already watched his team in
scrimmages against Stanford last Saturday
and the L.A. Galaxy II three days later,
Klinsmann felt the impetus to make deci-
“We discussed it every day, when is a good
time and how we felt since we go into anoth-
er scrimmage tomorrow morning,” he said,
in a golf cart outside the locker room, look-
ing ahead to a practice session against the
San Jose Earthquakes’ reserves.
He put off discussing the Donovan deci-
sion until a Friday news conference. Asked
whether he agonized over it, he said “a little
bit of time.”
The U.S. Soccer Federation quoted
Klinsmann as saying “this is certainly one
of the toughest decisions in my coaching
career, to tell a player like him, with every-
thing he has done and what he represents, to
tell him that he’s not part of that 23 right
now. ”
“I just see some other players slightly
ahead of him,” Klinsmann said, “He took it
the best way possible. His disappointment
is huge, which I totally understand. He took
it very professionally. He knows I have the
highest respect for him, but I have to make
the decisions as of today for this group
going to Brazil.”
Donovan, the American record holder
with 57 international goals, was gone by
the time the roster was announced. Players
who survived the cut met in the Stanford
football locker room, went in golf carts to a
nearby volleyball court and had fun playing
a kick version of volleyball. They returned
to the football locker room for the gear, and
as they left the Stanford band gathered out-
side and serenaded them with “Star Wars.”
Donovan by bypassed in favor of 23-
year-old Aron Johannsson and 31-year-old
Chris Wondolowski, who joined Jozy
Altidore and Clint Dempsey as the forwards.
Klinsmann also took 18-year-old mid-
fielder Julian Green, who was eligible to
play for the U.S. and Germany and only
made his national team debut last month.
Eric Wynalda, a forward for the U.S. at the
1990, 1994 and 1998 World Cups, said
Klinsmann’s decision will be compared
coach Steve Sampson announcing two
months before the 1998 tournament that he
was dropping captain John Harkes.
“That was an incredibly disruptive deci-
sion that really destroyed our team. Alot of
people are going to make that correlation,
and I don’t think they should because it’s a
different scenario,” said Wynalda, now an
analyst for Fox. “The implications of leav-
ing Landon out of this team could strength-
en the side. Where we’ve relied so much on
him in the past, this forces other people to
really feel the belief from their manager. As
horrible as this must be for Landon, and as
agonizing as it is for Jurgen, these are the
tough decisions you pay Jurgen Klinsmann
a lot of money to make.”
Donovan was a mainstay of the national
team before he took a sabbatical of about
four months after the 2012 season, spend-
ing part of the time in Cambodia.
Klinsmann said Donovan would have to
earn his spot back.
He restored Donovan to the roster for last
summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, where
Donovan excelled, and played Donovan for
World Cup qualifiers later in the year. But
Klinsmann kept him out of the starting
lineup for last month’s exhibition against
Mexico, saying Donovan practiced poorly
because of a knee problem.
Donovan said this week his knee was OK.
“I’m very confident in my abilities and I
think I’m deserving to be a part of the squad,
but I have to prove that and I have to earn
it,” he said Monday.
When Klinsmann announced his 30-man
preliminary roster on May 12, he said he
viewed Donovan more a forward than a mid-
“I don’t have that youthful energy and
excitement that I did in 2002, but I see the
game and I see the situation a lot more clear-
ly now, so I’m able to I think enjoy it more
in that way,” Donovan said. “When you’re
younger, you’re just sort of going crazy to
do whatever it takes to make the team and
you forget to enjoy it, And now I’m actually
getting to enjoy it.”

NEWYORK — Alex Galchenyuk tipped in a
pass at the right post 1:12 into overtime, and
the Montreal Canadiens overcame a late tying
goal and beat the New York Rangers 3-2 in
Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals
Thursday night.
Montreal cut New York’s series lead to 2-1,
and can tie it Sunday night at Madison Square
Garden before heading home for Game 5.
Galchenyuk, playing only his second
game of these playoffs after returning from
an injury Monday, deflected Tomas
Plekanec’s feed to win it.
The Rangers tied it with 28.1 seconds left in
regulation on Chris Kreider’s goal.
Dustin Tokarski was sharp throughout in
his second NHL playoff game in place of
injured goalie Carey Price, making 35 saves.
New York had its five-game winning streak
snapped, and its run of six straight victories
over the Canadiens also ended. The Rangers
fell to 1-1 in overtime in these playoffs. The
Canadiens are 3-1.
“We played really well, but we just have to for-
get about it, move on, and get ready for the next
one,” Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist said.
Montreal was poised to win it in regulation
after Danny Briere scored with 3:02 left in the
third, but Kreider matched him when his shot
hit the sliding right skate of Canadiens
defenseman Alexei Emelin in the crease and
caromed past Tokarski, who thrust his head
upward in disgust as Madison Square Garden
Tokarski was playing in his second straight
game because of a series-ending injury sus-
tained by Price, who was barreled into by
Kreider in Game 1.
Briere’s goal was also aided by an opposing
defenseman, as Ryan McDonagh nudged the
puck past Lundqvist.

Traveling back in time to fix a
bad situation or a bleak future is
one of the top science fiction
tropes in the multiverse. “X-
Men: Days of Future Past” is
based off a popular storyline
from the original comics that
involves revising history, and
not the kind conservatives are
always accusing the left of doing
and vice versa.
The conceit is quite clever. It’s
2023, and mutants are being
hunted down and slaughtered
genocide-style by frighteningly
lethal robots called Sentinels.
The tattered remnants of the X-
Men devise a plan to send
Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) back
half a century to change history.
His task involves preventing
the assassination of a scientist,

who invented the Sentinels.
Trask’s violent death at the
hands of Mystique (Jennifer
Lawrence) would eventually
lead to humankind turning
against the mutants, which
would then lead to the bleak

Even though J.B. Priestley’s
“An Inspector Calls” is set in
England in 1912, it could just as
easily be set in the United States
in 2014.
Its condemnation of an elitist
attitude that disregards the needs
of the underprivileged is as rele-
vant today as it was then.
Stanford Repertory Theater
makes that point clear in its
excellent production directed by
Rush Rehm.
Priestley’s original, written in
the winter of 1944-45, was in
three acts and ran for more than
two hours. Rehm apparently is
using the streamlined, 90-minute
Royal National Theatre adapta-
tion that won four 1994 Tony
Awards and came to San
Francisco in 1996.
The action takes place in the
home of the wealthy Birling fam-
i l y. They’re celebrating the
engagement of daughter Sheila
(Kiki Bagger) to Gerald Croft
(Ethan Wilcox). His father’s firm
is the chief rival to Sheila’s
father’s firm. Her father, the
socially and financially ambi-
tious Arthur (James Carpenter),
foresees a successful business
alliance in their romantic rela-
Joining the celebration are
Sheila’s mother, Sybil (Courtney
Walsh), and brother, Eric (Andre
Their evening is interrupted by
Inspector Goole (West on
Gaylord) of the Brumley police.
He says that a young woman has
committed suicide by swallowing
disinfectant, leading to an ago-
nizing death.
Their reaction, although horri-
fied, amounts to “So what? This
has nothing to do with us.”
Inspector Goole disagrees, and
proceeds to show how actions by
each person led to her final des-
perate act.
Her downfall started two years
earlier when she was working in
Arthur’s factory. He fired her
because she led a campaign to
raise wages. He said that if he
paid his workers more, his prof-
its would drop.
Later, she was working in a
women’s clothing store when
Sheila demanded that she be fired
because of a perceived imperti-
nence. When Gerald and finally
Eric met her, she was desperately
Each man helped for a bit, but
Gerald abandoned her, and she
broke off with Eric. Finally, she
went to a committee that helps
poor women, but Sybil, the com-
mittee head, turned her down.
Hence, they see how each one
bore some responsibility for the
woman’s fate. Shortly thereafter,
however, they suspect that what
Goole has told them isn’t true and
that he isn’t who he says he is.
The elder Birlings and Gerald
are relieved and readily resume
their elitist attitudes. However,
Sheila and Eric seem transformed
by their feelings of guilt. The
audience is left to ponder who
Goole really is and why he
arrived that evening.
As is true with Stanford Rep’s
summer productions, this one
features seasoned, professional
actors alongside students. The
professionals here are Carpenter
and Walsh, who so ably portray
the parents and their sense of
privilege. The students do an
excellent job of bringing out the
nuances of their characters.
Production values are high with
period costumes by Connie
Strayer and lighting by Dan
Wadleigh. Erik Flatmo’s set fea-
tures an ample dining table, side-
board and grandfather clock,
which shows the correct time.
In today’s terms, one might
say that the people in the
Birlings’ home represent the 1
percent. Therefore, it’s appropri-
ate that this production is part of
the Ethics of Wealth series pre-
sented by Stanford’s Ethics in
Society program.
It’s both theatrically rewarding
and intellectually intriguing.
“An Inspector Calls” will con-
tinue in Piggott Theater
(Memorial Auditorium), 551
Serra Mall, Stanford, through
May 24. For tickets and informa-
tion, call (650) 725-5838 or

Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) is one of the top compre-
hensive art museums in the nation, with 45,000 objects
spanning 6,000 years. Internationally renowned for its sub-
stantial holdings of Asian and Egyptian art, the CMA also
houses significant works by Botticelli, Caravaggio, El
Greco, Rubens, Goya, Dalí, Matisse, Renoir, Gauguin,
Eakins, Monet, Warhol, Pollock, Christo and van Gogh.
Highlights include J.M.W. Turner, The Burning of the Houses
of Lords and Commons, 1835; William Sidney Mount, The
Power of Music, 1847; Frederic Edwin Church, Twilight in
the Wilderness, 1860; Pablo Picasso, La Vie, 1903; Albert
Pinkham Ryder, The Race Track (Death on a Pale Horse),
1896-1908; George Bellows, Stag At Sharkey’s, 1909; and
Claude Monet, Waterlilies,1915-1926).
THE BEGINNINGS. The museum’s creation was made
possible by John Huntington, Horace Kelley and Hinman
Hurlbut, Cleveland industrialists who bequeathed money
specifically for an art museum, as well as by Jeptha H. Wade,
a founder of Western Union Telegraph, who donated a 63-acre
parcel for the museum campus. The site, renamed Wade Park,
now also contains the Cleveland Botanical Garden, the
Cleveland Museum of Natural History and the Wade Park Fine
Arts Garden, where a number of sculptures from the CMA’s
holdings are showcased. When the CMAopened its doors in
1916, Wade’s grandson, Jeptha H. Wade II, proclaimed it “for
the benefit of all the people, forever.” The museum’s $750
million dollar endowment, one of the largest of any American
museum, allows it to remain historically true to its founders’
vision, keeping general admission free to the public.
ED. The Cleveland Museum of Art has celebrations scheduled
throughout 2014 to mark the completion of its $350 million
dollar expansion, designed by award-winning Uruguayan
architect Rafael Viñoly. The focal point of this visionary
project is a dramatic atrium that brilliantly connects the orig-
inal 1916 neoclassical, white Georgian Marble, Beaux-Arts
building with the new galleries. As the CMAannounced, “A
grand, open piazza at the core of the museum complex, the
atrium is a place to congregate, a source of airy light and a ref-
erence point for greatly simplified navigation throughout the
galleries.” The new east and west wings, as well as the
enclosing of the extraordinary, breathtaking atrium courtyard
under a spectacular 34,000-square-foot glass canopy, brings
the museum’s total floor space to 592,000 square feet.
Interim Deputy Director for Collections, Education and
Performing Arts, Cleveland Museum of Art, said: “If you
come to Cleveland, a visit to the Museum of Art should be
first on your list of things to do — indeed, seeing the newly-
renovated museum is worth a trip to Cleveland! The museum’s
collection is known throughout the world not just for its
range — from the ancient world to the present, including
works from Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas — but for
its extraordinary quality. Everyone will have his or her own
favorite, but a visitor shouldn’t miss the Armor Court, a great
hall filled with chain mail, swords and suits of armor. If you
like impressionism, you should be sure to see Claude Monet’s
extraordinary painting of Waterlilies.”
Rodin’s The Thinker, at the top of the museum’s main stair-
case, was partially destroyed in a 1970 dynamite bombing,
allegedly by the Weather Underground (no one was ever
charged). Cast under Rodin’s direct supervision, and acquired
by the CMAin 1917, just after the museum opened, the stat-
ue has been left in its unrestored condition, in part to bear
witness to the political unrest in the United States during the
Vietnam War. The damage has come to define the CMAcasting
as unique among the more than 25 original large castings of
The Thinker.
MUSEUM PARTICULARS. The Cleveland Museum of
Art is located at 11150 East Blvd., Cleveland, Ohio. The
museum has a Provenance Research Project, partially funded
by the National Endowment for the Arts, to determine if spe-
cific European paintings and sculptures in its collection were
involved in the systematic
art plunder by the Nazis.
Results of the research will
be published on the muse-
um’s website at cleve-
torial/provenance-research. The museum is also home to the
Ingalls Library, one of the largest art libraries in the United
States. For more information about the Cleveland Museum of
Art, its holdings, programs and events call (216) 421-7350
or visit www.ClevelandArt.org.
Susan Cohn can be reached at susan@smdailyjournal.com or
OHIO. A favorite of visitors since its opening day in 1916, the
Armor Court of the Cleveland Museum of Art holds 400 pieces
of chain mail, swords, daggers, helmets and suits of armor.
Seen here is Field Armor for Man and Horse with the Arms of
the Völs-Colonna Family, made about 1575 in Northern Italy.

San Francisco Symphony accompanied Christian Tetzlaff
during last week’s performances.
By David Bratman
In the San Francisco Symphony, we
have a world-class orchestra on our
doorstep, and it’s worth going up to
Davies Symphony Hall in the city to
hear it. Last week’s concerts, running
Wednesday to Saturday, were conducted
by music director Michael Ti l son
Thomas and featured Christian Tetzlaff
on violin. Awide-traveling soloist — I
was in Chicago last month and heard
him with the Symphony there —
Tetzlaff was an utter charmer on
Wednesday in Béla Bartók’s long, diffi-
cult and modernist Violin Concerto No.
Taking its strongly spicy, folk-influ-
enced melodies with deep lyricism,
Tetzlaff sped through fast parts of his
concerto with steely assurance.
Accompanied on various occasions by
such unusual orchestral accompanists
as harp, timpani or percussion battery,
he gave a fierce but clear performance
Changing tone styles frequently,
Tetzlaff ran back and forth between hard
aggressiveness and a softer lyricism.
The orchestra accompanied him with
equally crisp and energetic chatter.
The concerto, written in 1937-38,
sits on the edge between Bartók’s
tough and wiry modernist style and the
more ingratiating manner he adopted
during his American exile of World War
II. This performance could be enjoyed
by fans of either of Bartók’s styles.
The concert began with Jean
Sibelius’ early but wholly characteris-
tic tone poem “Lemminkäinen’s
Return.” It’s a short, dramatic, forward-
thrusting work that passes in a rushing
whirl. Its emotional manner fit well
with the Bartók that followed.
What didn’t fit was the big work that
followed after intermission, Johannes
Brahms’ Symphony No. 4, the most
melancholy and autumnal work in a
body that already tends far in that direc-
tion. It was a beautiful performance.
This really is a great orchestra, and it
has outstanding ability under MTT’s
direction to make blended and thought-
fully-arranged sounds that are blissful
to hear.
It’s possible, I suppose, to inject
more vigor into this work — the scher-
zo movement shows an unexpected
touch of gallantry — but this perform-
ance went with the grain of the music.
Fine in itself, it just felt a little too
anticlimactic after the power of Bartók.
Acase could be made for always play-
ing the works in a variety concert in
chronological order, which here would
have put the Brahms first. Then it could
have been taken on its own terms, and
Sibelius and Bartók would have been
heard for what they intended to do,
which was to break out of the 19th cen-

movie begins.
Wolverine’s consciousness is transported
into his body, circa 1973. Confusion,
action and hilarity (as well as bell bottoms
and smoking cigarettes indoors) reign as
Wolverine has to convince and recruit the
past versions of the X-Men and other
mutants to help him stop Mystique from
carrying out her plans.
The story is exceptional. After all, it was
based off the work of Chris Claremont and
John Byrne who were at the helm of the
series during its golden age (sorry, comic
book geek at work here).
But the filmmakers gleefully take the
storyline to another level of greatness by
utilizing teams from both X-Men fran-
chises. “Days” is the first time that I
know of where two versions of a movie
franchise coalesce into one thread.
Characters and actors from the series that
began in 2000 with the original “X-Men”
are merged with the group from the reboot
that commenced with 2011’s “X-Men: First
Class.” Thank you, time travel. And plastic
Bryan Singer, who directed the first two
installments from the original series, takes
a challenging story involving two dozen
characters in two timelines over three conti-
nents, and is able to make the best X-Men
movie yet. It’s an understatement to say that
rare is the sixth movie in a series that is any
good (Other sixth movies in a series:
“Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives,” “Rocky
Balboa,” “Police Academy 6: City Under
Some folks may find the huge ensemble
cast confusing without at least a cursory
grasp of the X-Men canon. But others who
are used to the huge acting teams of “Lost”
and “Game of Thrones” will be fine.
And what a cast it is — Michael
Fassbender, James McAvoy, Halle Berry,
Ellen Page, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart.
This movie has Katniss, Capt. Jean-Luc
Picard, the evil plantation owner from “12
Years a Slave” (no, I don’t mean Donald
Sterling), Juno, the hottie from “Swordfish”
and Gandalf the wizard! On May 23, when
the movie opens, nerd heads will simply
The action sequences are surprisingly
understated, but still fun and enjoyably
“comic booky.” I enjoyed it much more than
the action-heavy “Avengers” and predict I
enjoyed it far more than the future, Affleck-
heavy “Justice League.”
The best scene of “Days” and maybe the
entire summer blockbuster season is cour-
tesy of a young Quicksilver (played by Evan
Peters from “American Horror Story”) early
on in the kitchens of the U.S. Pentagon.
Let’s just say it involves slow-motion pho-
tography and a soundtrack from Jim Croce’s
“Time in a Bottle.”
For a guy who wasn’t even into comic
books until starting the first X-Men movie,
Singer has a wonderful grasp of the work.
While ostensibly just a pulpy comic book,
the travails of the X-Men and mutants in
particular, speak of larger, grander themes
about what it means to be different, and the
pain of being mistreated or even slaughtered
for simply being who you are. As a gay man
who grew up Jewish, Singer obviously has
an affinity for the content.
He also shows reverence and respect for
the Marvel universe and the comic book
medium. Many little nuances of the film will
satisfy the legion of fanboys and girls.
Finally, a little history: Back in 2005,
Singer left the X-Men franchise to direct
“Superman Returns.” Both Singer, by mak-
ing a bomb, and the third X-Men movie, by
being made into a bomb by Brett Ratner of
“Rush Hour” fame, were caused irreparable
harm. Those series of bad decisions begat
the unwatchable fourth X-Men film,
“Origins: Wolverine.”
While “Days of Future Past,” does not
travel back in time to prevent this awful
sequence of events in movie history, it does
go a long way toward repairing some of the

hicago is adding another jewel to
its culinary crown. After 24 years
in the Big Apple, the James Beard
Foundation awards ceremony is moving to
the Windy City next year.
It’s more proof that Chicago has fast
become home to one of the country’s
hottest restaurant scenes. The foundation
— which is based in New York and honors
the nation’s best chefs, restaurants and
food media — says several cities had asked
to host the annual awards ceremony, but
Chicago’s offer of marketing and sponsor-
ship support was too good to turn down.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called
the move “a milestone” and led a
Champagne toast with some of the city’s
best-known chefs at the Pritzker Pavilion
to celebrate the
“This is a recogni-
tion of what all of us
have known locally,
and now everyone will
know worldwide,”
Rahm said. “Chicago
is a culinary capital.”
He praised the chefs
for attracting visitors
from “all over the
world, to the city of
Chicago to also enjoy
what you all do with the canvas of a beau-
tiful meal.”
“Chicago has long been a top culinary
destination, a city that could satisfy any
food-lover’s cravings,” agreed James
Beard President Susan Ungaro, who made
the announcement with Emanuel.
The James Beard awards were first held in
1990, and have always been held in New
York. The awards honor those who follow
in the footsteps of Beard, considered the
dean of American cooking when he died in
Chicago’s chefs have brought home
numerous Beard awards over the years,
including best chefs for Rick Bayless
(1995), Charlie Trotter (1999), Grant
Achatz (2008) and Paul Kahan (shared with
New York’s David Chang in 2013).
Bayless’ Frontera Grill was named best
restaurant in 2007 and Trotter’s Charlie
Trotter’s earned the honor in 2000.
Bayless joined with Ungaro and the
mayor for Tuesday’s announcement, along
with chefs Art Smith, Gale Gand and
Graham Elliott among others.
Back in New York City, at City Hall, a
spokeswoman for Mayor Bill de Blasio,
Marti Adams, had this to say: “We’re
always sad to lose a staple from the city’s
culinary world--but even with the James
Beard awards, Chicago still can’t beat New
York City’s food scene.”
The foundation’s awards ceremony for
chefs and restaurants will be held at the
Lyric Opera of Chicago on May 4, 2015.
The separate ceremony for books and
other media awards will remain in New
York. The foundation has no plans to relo-

BEIJING — Hugh Jackman said
Tuesday he wasn’t ready to give up
playing the popular X-Men character
Wolverine as he visited China to pro-
mote the franchise’s latest movie, which
includes local elements
intended to appeal to
the massive Chinese
He also told the
Associated Press
that he thinks he
will need future treat-
ments for skin cancer
after a second cancer-
ous growth was
removed from his nose
last week.
“X-Men: Days of Future Past,” the sev-
enth movie in the mutant superhero fran-
chise that has grossed $2.3 billion world-
wide, premiered in Beijing on Tuesday. The
Australian actor, who has appeared in every X-
Men movie over 14 years, said it may have been
premature for him to have said the next one would
be his last.
The latest film sees Jackman travel back to 1973
in a bid to change history and save humans and
mutants from destruction. It has Chinese elements,
including the casting of Chinese actress Fan
Bingbing, highlighting how Hollywood stu-
dios are keen to attract audiences in the
world’s second-biggest movie market as
box-office revenue growth flattens out at
Fan, who has a small role as the tele-
porting superhero Blink, said that the movie would
gross more in China because of her participa-
tion. When the movie’s action moves to the
superheroes’ last place of sanctuary, a remote
monastery, the Chinese subtitles indicate it is:
“China.” However, Fan said at a news conference
Tuesday that some of the columns looked
Jackman said there was a change in
Hollywood owing to China’s growing
“The Chinese market in particu-
lar is just booming, so the larg-
er the market becomes the
more the stories are going
to reflect what that mar-
ket wants,” he said
in an interview.
“I see collab-
oration in
every way as
a posi t i ve.
At the end of
the day audi-
ences sniff
out cyni-
cism, they
sni ff out if
something is
just a market-
ing driven
thing. ”
Jackman, 45,
whose nose was
bandaged after a basal
cell carcinoma was
removed last week, said
he will probably have
many more cancerous
growths. His type of skin cancer is slow-growing and
can recur, but it is highly treatable.
He told the Associated Press: “I’m realistic about the
future and it’s more than likely that I’ll have at least one
more but probably many more, which is not uncommon
for an Aussie particularly from English stock growing up
in Australia where I don’t remember ever being told to put
sunscreen on.”
He added: “But the beauty of this is it’s all preventable,
it’s just about getting proper check-ups. I can be typical
man, a little lazy, I couldn’t be bothered and now I’m not
lazy at all.”
“X-Men: Days of Future Past” will be released in China
and the United States on May 23. It has an all-star cast,
including Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry and Patrick
Stewart. “Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage, who
plays a scientist wanting to destroy the mutants, was
also in Beijing to promote the movie. The blockbuster
franchise has grossed $2.3 billion worldwide.
While Jackman previously said that he was pretty sure
he wouldn’t act in any further X-Men movies after the
next one, which is scheduled for release in 2017, he told
the AP: “I think I might have overplayed my hand a little
bit by saying I’m almost sure that the next one will be
my last.”

Spring is back and so are farmers markets.
And that means a whole new chance to make
friends with strange and unusual vegetables.
Or to rehabilitate some old familiars.
The number of farmers markets has more
than doubled during the past decade, top-
ping more than 8,000 in 2013. Matching
that proliferation is equally wild growth in
the variety of produce sold at them.
Heirloom tomatoes and carrots in funky
colors? That’s just the start. Think rainbow-
spectrum radishes, unusual peas, beans and
legumes; gooseberries and quince.
But trying something new — whether it’s
an unfamiliar vegetable or an exotic prepa-
ration — can be intimidating. The best
advice is to start slow.
If you like arugula, branch out to water-
cress. In baby form, it’s a perfect salad
green, a sturdier, even more peppery alter-
native to the more ubiquitous arugula. It
also makes a stellar pesto, says Diana
Henry, author most recently of the cook-
book “A Change of Appetite” (Octopus
Publishing, 2014). “I actually like it better
than basil pesto,” Henry says. “Basil can be
quite perfumed. This is a bit more earthy,
more peppery. ”
If you like cabbage, try kohlrabi. Astout
bulb with a thick skin, the flesh is crisp like
a radish, and as brightly flavored as cab-
bage. “I predict that kohlrabi’s going to be
the next big thing,” says Martha Rose
Shulman, author most recently of “The
Simple Art of Vegetarian Cooking” (Rodale,
2014), noting that some companies are
beginning to package kohlrabi for lunch
“Shred it to make a slaw or a stir-fry with
kohlrabi and some greens,” she says. “I
recently had a really great salad — feta,
olives, a little diced kohlrabi. It really
absorbs the dressing.”
Shulman also is a big fan of pea shoots,
slender tendrils from the same plant. They
taste like peas, but can be treated like
greens. “Those are just beautiful,” she says.
“I like to use those in stir-fries and just
cook them up and serve them up as a side.
They’re very good with grains.”
Cardoons, a member of the thistle family
that’s a foraged food for many Italians, also
can be found at some farmers markets.
“Certainly cardoons are a vegetable that
people are mystified with when they do see
it,” says Michele Scicolone, whose most
recent book is “The Italian Vegetable
Cookbook” (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt,
“You have to blanche it and peel it and
then you can bread it and fry it or gratinee it
with butter and cheese, and it’s very tasty, ”
she says. “It tastes like artichoke hearts.”
Scicolone also champions zucchini flow-
ers, another Italian specialty that can be
chopped for a frittata, tossed in a salad, or
stuffed with mozzarella and deep fried. “It
may seem like an exotic delicacy, but to a
hungry Italian of a certain era, it’s a veg-
etable,” she says. “When I was a kid, my
mom would make little fritters with them.
We would eat them like that for an appetiz-
er. ”
If you’re more the type to stick with the
usual vegetable suspects, we’ve made it
easy to at least take them for a spin in a new
direction. For zucchini, we’ve given you a
simple, but delicious recipe for grilling.
And for eggplant, we turn it into a bruschet-
ta topping that packs tons of flavor.
Start to finish: 15 minutes
Servings: 6
3 medium zucchini
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 teaspoons brown sugar
Fresh limes, for squeezing
Heat the grill to medium-high. Cut the
zucchini in half lengthwise, then rub them
all over with the olive oil.
In a small bowl, combine the salt, pep-
per, paprika and brown sugar. Sprinkle all
over the zucchini. Grill the zucchini until
tender and charred, 5 to 7 minutes per side.
Serve with lime wedges for squeezing.
This eggplant mixture also is delicious
over grilled chicken or haddock.
Start to finish: 15 minutes active, plus 2
hours resting
Servings: 8
1 large eggplant, sliced into 1/2-inch-
thick slices
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
2 medium tomatoes, seeds removed, diced
2 ribs celery, diced
1 orange or yellow bell pepper, cored and
3 scallions, sliced
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, torn
Balsamic glaze, to serve
Baguette or pita, to serve
Heat the grill to medium. Use 2 table-
spoons of the oil to brush each eggplant
slice on both sides. Sprinkle the slices with
salt and pepper. Grill until tender, 3 to 5
minutes per side.
Allow the eggplant slices to cool until
easily handled, then dice. In a large bowl,
gently mix together the eggplant, toma-
toes, celery, bell pepper, scallions, garlic,
basil and the remaining 2 tablespoons of
olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Allow to sit for at least 2 hours for best fla-
vor. Serve on baguette or pita bread and
drizzled with balsamic glaze.
Summer brings chance to try new vegetables
consistent practice and world record holders
and even Olympic shooters have practiced
at the Coyote Point Shooting Range,
Norton said.
Even though shooting relies more on
hand-eye coordination than brute strength,
it’s mostly men who participate in the
sport, Norton said.
Norton said he’s interested in why shoot-
ing is a male-dominated sport and plans on
asking this weekend’s students what’s dis-
couraged them from trying it in the past.
“I just think for whatever reason, in our
society we’ve just kind of not fostered it.
Yeah, it’s a guy thing, but it doesn’t have to
be. I think it has to be opened to all the
sexes so they can experience [shooting] and
say yeah, I like it or I don’t like it,” Norton
Although the ratio of participation is
uneven, very experienced women frequent
the range and also wonder why more don’t
participate. More often than not, sport
shooters prefer going to a range as a social
activity, so Norton said he hopes these
courses will introduce some of the women to
more than just guns, Norton said.
“We have women that compete in compe-
titions, that we’ve known for years. And
they’re asking the same question,” Norton
said. “That’s what I’m trying to do, is foster
a group … have the women network with
them and, there may be your next best
Although this weekend’s activities are
only for women, the club regularly hosts
various classes at Coyote Point Shooting
Range, Norton said. Two introductory cours-
es for pistols and rifles, a firearm safety
class and an online educational hunting
course are offered throughout the year.
Norton said he was never exposed to guns
growing up but became interested as an
adult. He’s since been shooting for 25
years, teaching for 20 years, and like all of
the instructors, is dedicated to teaching the
public how to properly and safely operate a
piece of equipment.
“Guns exist in our society everywhere and
this is a tool that needs to be learned,”
Norton said. “You don’t understand it until
you understand all aspects of it.”

Pillar Point Harbor north of Half Moon
Bay, couldn’t be examined until it washes
onshore, if it ever does.
Van Schagen said the Marine Mammal
Center is coordinating with several agen-
cies to assess the whale’s status and deter-
mine how to respond. Other agencies
involved in the effort are the California
Academy of Sciences, the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration’s
National Marine Fisheries Service, and the
U.S. Coast Guard.
Van Schagen said that if possible, a
necropsy would be performed depending on
how decomposed the carcass is.
“Afresh carcass is better for taking sam-
ples,” van Schagen said.
Mike Williams, Pillar Point’s deputy
harbormaster, said the whale was about a
mile offshore as of Thursday afternoon.
“It was close to the break wall yesterday,
but went out with the tide last night,” said
Williams, who noted that harbor officials
are not authorized to touch or do anything
to the whale.
Williams said the Coast Guard has issued
a bulletin alerting mariners in the harbor
and heading out to sea that there is a dead
whale floating offshore.
The Coast Guard is also providing tide
and current information to help determine
the direction of the whale carcass’ move-
ment, according to van Schagen.
“Markings on a humpback’s fluke, or tail
fin, have individual markings and notches,
much like a human’s fingerprint,” van
Schagen said.
She added that researchers have a catalog
of flukes they identify and may be able to
match the fluke to those they’ve been
looking at over time to determine factors
such as where the animal was headed and
why it ended up near Half Moon Bay.
Van Schagen emphasized the benefit of
performing a necropsy on a fresh carcass.
“We can learn a lot about the animal and
the ocean environment. For instance, from
its blubber we can perform toxicology
studies, and its bones can be used in muse-
um displays,” she said.
Jeff Clark, owner of nearby Mavericks
Surf Shop, is concerned for the safety of
surfers should the whale decompose in
nearby seas.
In a Facebook posting Thursday on the
shop’s website, Clark said sharks would be
attracted to the area if the dead whale were
not removed immediately from the waters
surrounding the area’s popular surfing
spot .
Curious onlookers were drawn to the
break wall and nearby beach over the past
two days.
Dominic Bigue of El Granada took his
daughter down to the beach by bike around
7:30 p.m. Wednesday to catch a glimpse of
the whale.
“There was a big crowd of people look-
ing at it,” said Evie Bigue, 10.
“It looked a lot smaller than I thought it
would look. I go to this beach and see
whales out there swimming all the time but
never thought I’d see a dead one washed up
on shore here. It’s so sad,” Evie said.

“We’ve been very patient with
them,” she said. “We are always hope-
According to Amos, negotiations
were pushed off until May to see how
Gov. Jerry Brown’s state budget revi-
sion shook out. The governor’s May
revision budget proposal did not
improve the district’s financial future,
according to a district statement. In
fact, if the proposed mandatory
increase in district contribution to
employees’ pension funds is adopted,
there will be an unforeseen additional
expense of nearly $200,000 per year,
according to a district statement.
Amos doesn’t trust the projections
though, Amos said. She said the dis-
trict’s statement also left out the fact
the district wanted to keep class size
high as part of the deal.
“They’ve underprojected their
reserves,” she said. “Their projections
are inaccurate and I’m betting they’re
either going to show they’ll stay the
same or have increased. I’m a little
incensed and a little angry — we’re not
allowed to put out a statement.”
Meanwhile, the district contends its
funding level under the Local Control
Funding Formula is the lowest in San
Mateo County. In addition, district
officials said San Carlos was the only
district in the county to grant ongoing
salary increases for the last two years
— 2 percent in the 2011-12 school
year and 3 percent in the 2012-13
school year. In last year’s negotia-
tions, the parties acknowledged and
signed off on an agreement that stipu-
lated that the 3 percent raise would sig-
nificantly impact the district’s ability
to negotiate further raises in 2013-14,
according to the statement.
“The two consecutive years of raises
were granted while many districts and
employees across the state were still
experiencing wage cuts, flat salaries
and/or one-time salary increases,”
wrote Superintendent Craig Baker and
Chief Operating Official Robert Porter
in a joint statement. “Despite its low
funding level, San Carlos salaries rank
among the highest of state-funded San
Mateo County school districts. The
district is eager to begin the mediation
process and come to a mutually benefi-
cial outcome for all.”
The district and teachers will now
enter mediation with a third party. The
mediator will be appointed to assist
the union and district in resolving
their differences. Mediation can last
for one meeting or for months, at the
complete discretion of the mediator. If
mediation is unsuccessful and the
mediator releases the parties, the next
step is a fact-finding process. If this
too fails, there could be a strike.
“While it is disappointing not to
come to agreement on a contract prior
to the close of the 2013-14 school
year, we are hopeful that the mediation
process will allow for the two parties
to open new pathways for settlement,”
according to the district statement.
Continued from page 1
earlier this month.
The pre-application proposes a total
of 52,700 square feet of ground floor
retail space, which would be anchored
with a 33,600-square-foot grocery
store, according to the application.
The remainder of the site would be made
up of a total of 154 townhomes and
flats, according to the application. The
townhomes would be against the water-
front, according to the application.
The application also outlines 235
retail parking spaces and 308 residen-
tial parking spaces.
A proposal to redevelop the Charter
Square site on Shell Boulevard was also
put on hold after it was heard by the
City Council and received negative
community feedback at a meeting last
month. The developer sought to turn
the existing 55,000-square-foot shop-
ping center into 96 townhomes and
10,000 square feet of retail space.
Retail versus housing
Foster City has struggled to create a
strong retail presence while competing
against San Mateo’s Bridgepointe and
Hillsdale shopping centers,
Councilman Art Kiesel said.
With developers adding retail at the
15-acre site at the city’s center and the
Pilgrim Triton development with hous-
ing and offices, Kiesel said he ques-
tions how much retail Foster City can
support. And location is key, Kiesel
“Do you want retail buried so into the
city? The further into the city you go,
the less viable success. The further into
the city you go, your clients are going
to be limited to residents of Foster
City. Somebody from San Mateo,
there’s a low probability, unless it’s
just a super niche kind of retailer, ”
Kiesel said.
Ranch 99 Market and ABC Seafood
Restaurant are draws, but there are only
so many options, Kiesel said.
Councilman Herb Perez owns Gold
Medal Martial Arts, one of the busi-
nesses located at Edgewater Place.
Perez said viable retail requires smart
planning and doubling up similar
stores or services in the same shop-
ping center is bad for business.
“The other challenge I believe in that
center is overuse of certain categories,”
Perez said. “The city as a whole needs
to look at conditional use permits.
Because we’re cannibalizing the busi-
nesses. … We need a more comprehen-
sive approach to our retail and commu-
nity spaces.”
Kiesel said Foster City does earn
some decent sales tax out of Costco,
but it’s proving harder to generate,
especially when a one-bedroom apart-
ment is averaging about $2,100 a
month. In 2013, for the first time the
number of permits issued for multi-unit
developments surpassed those issued
for single-family homes, Kiesel said.
“So we’re seeing this huge explosion
into multi-unit dwellings because it
pencils out. So I can understand why
shopping centers, if retail is marginal,
they’d go with multi-unit dwellings,”
Kiesel said. “It’s going to be a better
return for the property owner.”
At capacity?
But Councilman Steve Okamoto
thinks approving more housing devel-
opments needs to be about more than
the bottom line.
Okamoto said after the failure of the
San Mateo-Foster City Elementary
School District’s Measure P bond pro-
posal last November, the city doesn’t
have much to reinvest in the school
system right now.
“With all these new residences, I
think it’s a great idea because we like to
attract as many residents as possible.
But until we solve the overcrowding of
the schools situation, I can not
approve any more residences,”
Okamoto said.
If the site is redeveloped, many of the
current tenants would be displaced and,
if they wanted to return, it would likely
be at a much higher rate, Okamoto said.
Okamoto agrees the city’s shopping
centers need to be more coordinated and
said having three similar restaurants at
a single location isn’t going to pro-
vide a solid retail base.
Based on the impacts it would have
on the residents, EHC likely postponed
its pre-application to get more commu-
nity input before presenting it to the
council, Okamoto said.
Banks said when the developer
returns to start the pre-application
process, the public and council will be
given ample opportunity to partici-
“This process is set so the City
Council and public can get an early
input into the project before [the devel-
oper] starts the formal process,” Banks
said. “It also gives them, the appli-
cant, some initial feedback before they
go and further refine the project and go
before the Planning Commission to
start the approval process.”

FRIDAY, MAY 23, 2014
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Not everyone will share
your goals. Avoid a power struggle with someone in a
group or organization. Before you act, decide what is
acceptable and appropriate to your cause.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Rein in your tendency
to be argumentative today. Don’t alienate your
friends with aggression and unrealistic demands.
Keep your distance until you cool down. Patience
and tolerance will be required.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — By traveling outside your
usual area, you will meet individuals interested
in hearing what you have to offer. Increase your
visibility, and you will find new ways to prosper.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Now is not a good
time to get involved in financial partnerships. Keep
a close watch on your cash and say no to any
smooth-talking salesmen.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Things may be less than
harmonious on the home front. Don’t compound the
problem by dredging up past differences. You can
rectify the situation if you deal with current issues first.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Someone close to you
will be resentful of the time you devote to work. Do
your best to counter any personal problems with a
plan that will reverse the situation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — A romantic
relationship will be triggered by a social event.
Participate in as many stimulating activities as you
can, so that you can widen your circle of friends.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You have to think
of others in order to avoid criticism. Devote more time
to people who count on you and need your attention
before you cause a permanent rift. Put family first.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You could burn out if
you don’t slow down. Detach yourself from the rat race
and relax. Organize and plan your day strategically so
that you’re not constantly playing catch-up.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Show your employer
how versatile you are. By agreeing to take on extra
tasks, you will boost his or her opinion of you and
bring about a financial reward.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Think before you
speak. Avoid anyone who is aggressive about his or
her beliefs. Tact and diplomacy will be required for
group endeavors.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — You need peace and
quiet today. Refuse to let friends or relatives meddle
in your affairs. You can ease tension by planning
some alone time to do something that makes you feel
good or more accomplished.

BANGKOK — Without firing a
shot, Thailand’s powerful mili-
tary seized control of this
volatile Southeast Asian nation
Thursday, suspending the consti-
tution and detaining Cabinet
ministers in a risky bid to end
half a year of political upheaval
that many fear will only deepen
the nation’s crisis.
The coup, the second in eight
years, accomplished in a few
minutes what anti-government
protesters backed by the
nat i on’s traditional elite and
staunch royalists had failed to
achieve on the street: the over-
throw of a democratically elected
government they had accused of
The new junta leader, army
chief Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha,
announced he was taking power
almost immediately after talks
between the nation’s bitter polit-
ical rivals — which lasted a mere
four hours over the last two days
— ended in deadlock and the gov-
ernment refused to resign.
Prayuth claimed he had to act to
restore stability and “quickly
bring the situation back to nor-
mal” amid increasing spasms of
violence that together with con-
troversial court rulings had ren-
dered the government powerless
and the country profoundly divid-
But troubles for Thailand, a
regional economic hub whose
idyllic white-sand beaches and
elephant-filled jungles draw mil-
lions of tourists a year, could be
just beginning.
“We’re likely to see dark days
ahead,” said Thitinan
Pongsudhirak, a political analyst
at Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn
University, referring to the pos-
sibility of violent resistance
from the ousted government’s
The deposed administration of
acting Prime Minister
Niwattumrong Boonsongpaisan,
which was summoned to appear
before the junta Thursday night,
seemed to have gone into hiding
and made no statement condemn-
ing the coup. Four of its minis-
ters, ordered to an army com-
pound for talks earlier in the day,
were in custody, along with top
protest leaders.
Thai military seizes power in bloodless coup
Thai soldiers take control during a coup at the Army Club where Thailand’s
army chief held a meeting with all rival factions in central Bangkok.
Koreas exchange fire near disputed sea boundary
SEOUL, South Korea — North and South Korean warships
exchanged artillery fire Thursday in disputed waters off the
western coast, South Korean military officials said, in the
latest sign of rising animosity between the bitter rivals in
recent weeks.
Officials from the South’s Joint Chiefs of Staff and
Defense Ministry said a South Korean navy ship was
engaged in a routine patrol near the countries’ disputed mar-
itime boundary in the Yellow Sea when a North Korean navy
ship fired two artillery shells. The shells did not hit the
South Korean ship and fell in waters near it, they said.
The South Korean ship then fired several artillery rounds
in waters near the North Korean ship which also did not hit
it, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity
because of office rules.
South Korea was trying to determine if the North Korean
ship had attempted to hit the South Korean vessel but
missed, or if the shells were not meant to hit the ship.
Officials said that residents on the frontline Yeonpyeong
Island were evacuated to shelters, and fishing ships in the
area were ordered to return to ports. In 2010, North Korea
fired artillery at the island, killing two civilians and two
Kang Myeong-sung, a Yeonpyeong resident, said in a
phone interview that hundreds of residents were in under-
ground shelters after loudspeakers ordered them there.
Deadliest day for Ukraine troops: 16 slain in raid
BLAHODATNE, Ukraine — In the deadliest raid yet on
Ukrainian troops, pro-Russia insurgents attacked a military
checkpoint Thursday, killing 16 soldiers, and the interim
prime minister accused Moscow of trying to disrupt the
upcoming election for a new president to lead the divided
country out of its crisis.
Arebel commander said one of his fighters also died in the
raid in eastern Ukraine, which left a gruesome scene of
charred military vehicles and scorched bodies near the town
of Volnovakha, 30 kilometers (20 miles) south of the city
of Donetsk.
Witnesses, including a medical worker, said more than 30
Ukrainian troops were wounded, with some in grave condi-

The armed uprising and the government’s offensive to put
it down have cast a shadow over Sunday’s election, with

Luhansk, where separatists have declared independence and
pledged to derail the vote, election workers reported threats
and interference from gunmen.
Syrian tanks roll into Aleppo prison grounds
BEIRUT — Syrian tanks backed by massive air power
rolled into the grounds of a sprawling prison in Aleppo on
Thursday, breaking a yearlong rebel siege and allowing
President Bashar Assad’s forces to close in on a nearby rebel
command center.

Syria’s largest city, and that is very unlikely to happen in
the next few weeks. But the army advances are a sign that
the momentum in the city may be shifting decisively in
favor of the government.
