City set to
pick hotel
developer
Residence Inn proposed
for San Carlos gateway
By Michelle Durand
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
San Carlos’ gateway could be home to a 205-room
Marriott Residence Inn by mid-2016 if the City Council
Tuesday night gives the green light on a recommended
developer for the landmark property off Highway 101.
The council spent nearly $14 million in November on
three Industrial Road and San Carlos Avenue parcels long
eyed for a hotel and, at its next meeting, will consider pick-
ing RD Olson Development to turn the wish into reality.
RD Olson has built six hotels in just more than two years
and two hotels are currently under construction, wrote Blake

Atask force has been established to help
Mills High School, a new charter school
and officials in the San Mateo Union High
School District figure out how to make a co-
location at the Millbrae campus work and to
discuss where to place the charter school
after the 2014-15 school year.
The Mills High School Co-location Task
Force met for the first time May 19 with key
stakeholders, including Mills parents and
district administration. Parents learned at
the end of March the San Mateo Union High
School District approved sending a letter to
the new charter called Design Tech High
School, offering six Mills classrooms,
each with 960 square feet of space. Safety,
financial costs of the school to the district
and traffic issues were also of concern.
“I really felt the meeting was productive
— it demonstrated clear commitment to
communication,” said Mills Principal Paul
Belzer at a school board meeting Thursday
night. “It (the task force) recommended
designing a process to meet the needs of
d.tech beyond the next school year. Several
issues were identified if both schools con-
tinue to co-locate after this school year. …
In light of the projected enrollment growth,
I ask the district do a thorough review of the
d.tech co-location.”
Parents were happy to have a place to air
their concerns about the co-location,
including Mills parent Steve Fong, a mem-
ber of the task force. He noted the first meet-
ing included a lot of good, open dialogue.

A 24-year-old man who beat a fellow
Belmont bar patron so severely last year he
later died was sentenced Friday to 14 years
in prison.
Joseph Patrick Kaufman pleaded no con-
test in April to voluntary manslaughter and
three counts of assault in the death of 48-
year-old Barney Hanepen. The plea deal
spared Kaufman a potential 15-years-to-life
term if convicted by a jury.
Hanepen was beaten April 29, 2013, out-
side the Lariat Tavern and died May 2.
Kaufman’s attorney, Jeff Jackson, has
said his client feels “very remorseful” and
never intended to kill Hanepen. Prosecutors
offered the plea to Kaufman in part because
the level of intoxication
by everybody involved
made the case challeng-
i ng.
Kaufman and Hanepen
were drinking separately
at the bar and, after it
closed at 2:15 a.m., got
into an argument outside
although it’s unclear
what exactly sparked the
exchange. The men and
their respective companions were all drink-
ing and Hanepen threw the first punch,
according to one witness. Kaufman punched
Hanepen in the face, pushing him to the
ground and repeatedly kicking him in the
head and torso until the man lost conscious-
ness. Hanepen suffered broken vertebrae,
fractures to his orbital bones, broken teeth
and brain bleeding.
Afterward, Hanepen’s female friend
departed the scene as did Kaufman and his
friend. Nobody reported anything and
police found Hanepen lying in the street. He
remained hospitalized in critical condition
until his death.
Kaufman has been in custody without bail
since his arrest and has credit of 448 days
against the 14-year sentence. He was also
ordered to pay a $5,000 restitution fund fine
and approximately $4,000 to Hanepen’s
family.

Fatal beating outside bar brings 14 years prison
Joseph
Kaufman

The San Francisco woman repeatedly
arrested for either sneaking through security
or simply visiting the airport in violation
of a court prohibition will receive mental
health treatment at a county residential
facility rather than incarceration.
A judge Friday agreed to admit Marilyn
Jean Hartman, 62, into the Pathways
Mental Health Court. Hartman’s admission
wasn’t necessarily assured as she lived out-
side San Mateo County and her diagnosis
was unclear at the time a judge agreed to con-
sider her for the alternative court.
On Friday, she was found suitable because
she is no longer living in the same resi-
dence and was diagnosed with a a major
depressive disorder. She will be placed in a
county mental health residential facility and
is again prohibited from San Francisco
International Airport.
District Attorney Steve
Wagstaffe said he agreed
with the resolution.
Entry into Pathways is
a way to connect Hartman
with services prosecutors
hope may cure her of the
repeated visits to San
Francisco and Oakland
international airports
despite court orders to
stay away. As Hartman
continued racking up new cases since her
original arrest in February, prosecutors
wrestled with the best course of action.
Hartman has told authorities she has cancer
and did not feel safe in her San Francisco
residence which is why she continually
headed to San Francisco International
Airport. Authorities believe she had cancer
several years ago but not now.
Hartman’s string of San Mateo County
arrests began in February when she was
apprehended following three attempts with-
in five days to board Hawaii-bound flights
without a ticket. The first time she managed
to get on board but was discovered when the
actual ticket holder arrived at the seat. The
next two times, including once when she
used a discarded boarding pass, she was
stopped at the security gate. Police finally
arrested her after the third time. In those
cases, Hartman pleaded no contest to two
misdemeanor counts of commercial burglary
and received credit for time served along
with the order to stay away unless she had a
ticket in her own name.
In quick succession through March and
April, Hartman was arrested in the food
court with her probation paperwork in her
purse, in the baggage claim area and most
recently in a terminal restroom.
After pleading no contest to trespassing
again, a judge agreed to consider Pathways.
Defense attorney Elsie Wanton did not
return a call for comment.

Dora Schmarie Knierim – 105 & 7 mos
October 10, 1908 - May 13, 2014
Resident of San Mateo
Dora Knierim was born in Neulandermoor Germany, near
Hamburg. She was the 18th of 19 children. At age 14
out of school she worked as a domestic in Hamburg and
in 1925 at the age of 16, Dora, with 2 sisters boarded a

Obituary
SAMSON WONG/DAILY JOURNAL
Lee Mullery, a longtime attendee and fellow historian of the Congregational Church of San
Mateo, with a copy of The Pine Tree, the church’s newsletter.
By Samson So
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT
The first thing that comes to mind when
walking through the halls of the
Congregational Church of San Mateo is
simple but sincere — family.
Whether it’s the smooth cushioned pews
scattered along the echoed sanctuary or the
array of beautiful stained glass along the
walls, CCSM conveys a feeling of home
throughout the building. Each glass tells a
story in itself that exemplifies the rich his-
tory that is CCSM.
This month, the Congregational Church
of San Mateo celebrated its 150th anniver-
sary of existence. For those of us who can’t
count that far, its opening was at the time of
the Civil War when Abraham Lincoln was
president in 1864.
On this day, the church at the corner of
San Mateo Drive and Tilton Avenue is rela-
tively quiet, but any given Sunday provides
a unique experience. Senior Minister Penny
Nixon explained the church’s desire to stay
connected with its community.
“In response to needs of the time, the best
thing for the public is a spiritual place for
our different neighborhoods. We honor tra-
dition, but we also want to be able to address
specific issues of the community.”
CCSM has experienced many events
Man caught with
enough explosives to destroy
block to represent himself
A Brisbane man convicted of drug and
weapons charges after a large quantity of
explosives and marijuana were found in his
home had a motion granted Friday to repre-
sent himself at his sentencing hearing,
according to prosecutors.
William Myles Harrell, 48, was granted
permission to fire his attorney, Michael
Gaines, and represent himself when he is
sentenced on charges of felony possession
of marijuana for sale, felony possession of
an automatic weapon and illegal posses-
sion of an explosive, San Mateo County
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
His sentencing was continued to July 1
after the motion was granted.
Harrell was arrested after Brisbane police
were called to a domestic dispute involving
him and his girlfriend on Oct. 1, 2012.
While police were there, Harrell agreed to
leave the home he shared with his girl-
friend and take a taxi to his parent’s home
in Montara, Wagstaffe said.
After he left, Harrell’s girlfriend showed
officers a closet in the home that contained
145 pounds of dynamite sticks, enough
explosives to destroy the neighborhood,
according to experts.
The closet also contained $37,000 in
cash and a gallon-sized bag of marijuana.
Harrell pleaded no contest in August on
condition of a maximum two years of state
prison. Wagstaffe noted that he was repre-
sented by yet another attorney, Charles
Bourdon, at the time he entered that plea.
Harrell is out of custody on a $500,000
bail bond.
Convicted girlfriend
killer denied parole
A man convicted 13 years ago of shoot-
ing his girlfriend in the head and throwing
her body off the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge
was denied parole Thursday for another
three years.
The hearing at Solano State Prison was
the sixth for John Christopher Smith, 60,
who is serving 17 years to life in prison
for second-degree murder.
The two-person parole board deemed
Smith unsuitable for release after a four-
hour hearing at which the victim’s family
attended as they have previously to protest
his possible release.
In October, 1989, Smith shot his girl-
friend in the back of the head during an
argument at her East Bay home. Smith
reportedly wrapped her body in weights
before tossing it in the water but days later
it floated to the surface and was carried to
Foster City by the current.
Ajury convicted Smith in April 1991.
Smith continues claiming the murder was
a spontaneous shooting during the argu-
ment but has no good explanation why she
was struck in the back of her head.

Bill would exempt Olympic medalists from taxes
SACRAMENTO — Legislation that would exempt
California athletes who win Olympic medals from paying
state taxes on their cash prizes passed the state Assembly
on Friday and prompted a spirited debate among lawmakers
about who deserves freedom from tax collectors.
The bill, AB2323, by Assemblyman Jeff Gorell, R-
Camarillo, heads to the Senate after passing on a 53-4 vote.
Many Olympians have meager salaries and deserve the
break for representing their country and training with little
financial support from the government, Gorell said.
“The least we can do as a state and as Americans is to give
these athletes a small break on this achievement they earn
for their enormous sacrifice, these achievements made on
our behalf,” Gorell said.
Medalists receive honorary payments from the U.S.
Olympic Committee, generally $25,000 for gold, $15,000
for silver and $10,000 for bronze, and are taxed on that as
part of their income.
Bill would ban plastic microbeads in cosmetics
SACRAMENTO — The state Assembly on Friday passed a
bill banning the use of plastic microbeads in soaps and cos-
metics, following actions already being taken by manufac-
turers and other state legislatures to keep the products out of
waterways.
Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble Co. and other
manufacturers already are phasing out the exfoliating ingre-
dients, which are considered harmful to the environment in
part because they are not biodegradable.
AB1699 by Assemblyman Richard Bloom, D-Santa
Monica, heads to the Senate after passing on a 45-10 vote.
He said the tiny exfoliating beads make their way past filters
in municipal water treatment plants and are swallowed by
fish.
“My bill ensures that there is a uniform mandate for the
use of these harmful microbeads to level the playing field for
all industry and help ... protect water for future genera-
tions,” Bloom said.
Bill to remove jail mandate for drug users fails
SACRAMENTO — A bill introduced by a Republican
gubernatorial candidate to eliminate mandatory jail time for
drug users has failed to pass the state Assembly.
AB2515 by Assemblyman Tim Donnelly fell seven votes
short of passing Friday on a 34-15 vote.
Existing law requires three months in jail for those con-
victed of being under the influence of a controlled sub-
stance. The bill would have eliminated the mandate, but
defendants still could face jail sentences for other charges,
including possession.
In his run for governor, Donnelly has criticized Gov.
Jerry Brown’s realignment law, which sends lower-level
offenders to county jails instead of state prisons. He said his
legislation would have reduced overcrowding in county jails
and allowed them to hold more serious offenders.
Senate holds immigrant health coverage bill
SACRAMENTO — The state Senate is holding legislation
that seeks to extend health care coverage to immigrants
who are in the country illegally until lawmakers find a way
to pay for it.
The Senate Appropriations Committee on Friday held
SB1005 by Democratic Sen. Ricardo Lara of Long Beach.
The move makes it harder for the bill to advance because it
will require a two-thirds vote.
Federal health care reforms prohibit immigrants in the
country illegally from receiving subsidies for insurance or
qualifying for Medicaid coverage, known as Medi-Cal in
California.
Around the state

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SACRAMENTO — Two lower court
rulings that have complicated efforts
to begin construction on California’s
$68 billion high-speed rail system are
premature and should be overturned,
attorneys for the state argued before an
appellate court panel Friday.
The arguments come after
Sacramento County Superior Court
Judge Michael Kenny ruled that the
bullet train project no longer complies
with the promises made to voters when
they approved selling nearly $10 bil-
lion in bonds in 2008. Kenny’s rul-
ings last November invalidated the
sale of $8.6 billion in state bonds and
required the state to write a new funding
plan.
The lawsuits filed by Kings County
and landowners there are premature
because the state is not yet seeking to
spend any of the bond money and only
the state Legislature can determine
whether there was enough detail in the
funding plan, Deputy Attorney General
Ross Moody told a three-judge panel
of the California 3rd District Court of
Appeal.
“We can’t get this project off the
ground. We’re stopped because of this
misreading of Proposition 1A,”
Moody said. “ We’re at the precipice of
actually getting this project into the
next phase and we are stopped, we’re
being told to go back. We don’t think
it’s a proper reading of the law. ”
Lawmakers approved the first phase
of the planned 800-mile rail line in
2012. That allowed the state to begin
selling bonds for construction of the
first 130-mile stretch and tap $3.3 bil-
lion in federal matching funds.
Attorney Stuart Flashman, who rep-
resents the Kings County landowners,
argued that the requirement for a valid
funding plan would not have been
included in the ballot measure if it was
not paramount to protecting the public
interest.
State argues right to sell high-speed rail bonds

WASHINGTON — In a second-
term Cabinet reshuffle, President
Barack Obama tapped San Antonio
Mayor Julian Castro on Friday to
be the nation’s next housing secre-
tary, giving a prominent national
platform to one of the Democratic
Party’s most celebrated up-and-
comers.
Joined by Castro and Vice
President Joe Biden, Obama also
announced he was nominating cur-
rent Housing and Urban
Development Secretary Shaun
Donovan to run the White House
budget office — an opening Obama
created when he asked his former
budget chief to take over the
Health and Human Services
Department last month.
“Just because you are of modest
means does not mean that your
aspirations or your opportunity
ought to be limited, and it certain-
ly means you can have the talent to
succeed and achieve the American
Dream,” Castro said as he accepted
the nomination in the State
Dining Room of the White House.
The 39-year-old Castro was pro-
pelled into the national spotlight
two years ago when Obama chose
him to deliver the keynote address
at the Democratic National
Convention — a political baptism
by fire not unlike the president’s
own rise to prominence when
Obama keynoted the 2004 conven-
tion. Friday’s announcement gives
another major boost to Castro’s
profile, just as Democrats are eye-
ing him as a potential vice presi-
dential candidate in 2016.
As a Democrat, Castro’s options
for climbing the political ladder
were severely constrained in
Texas, where every statewide office
is held by a Republican and
Democrats haven’t won a statewide
race in 20 years. In elevating
Castro to a Cabinet-level post,
Obama gives Castro perhaps his
best chance to establish his credi-
bility nationally as Democrats
seek to shore up a bench of prom-
ising candidates for future races.

WASHINGTON — President
Barack Obama celebrated when
sign-ups for his health care law
topped 8 million, far exceeding
expectations after a slipshod
launch. Most Americans, howev-
er, remain unimpressed.
A new Associated Press-GfK
poll finds that public opinion
continues to run deeply negative
on the Affordable Care Act,
Obama’s signature effort to cover
the uninsured. Forty-three per-
cent oppose the law, compared
with just 28 percent in support.
The pattern illustrates why the
health care law remains a favored
target for Republicans seeking a
Senate majority in the midterm
elections.
The poll does have a bright
spot for the administration:
Those who signed up for cover-
age aren’t reeling from sticker
shock. Most said they found pre-
miums in line with what they
expected, or even lower.
But even that was diminished
by another finding: More than
one-third of those who said
they or someone in their house-
hold tried to enroll, were ulti-
mately unable to do so. For the
White House, it’s an uncomfort-
able reminder of the technical
problems that paralyzed the
HealthCare. gov website for
weeks after it went live last
fal l .
The example of business owner
Henry Kulik shows some of the
cross-currents of public opinion.
Kulik is disabled as a result of
Lou Gehrig’s disease, a condition
that destroys the brain’s ability
to control muscle movement. His
family runs several stores that
sell ice cream and other summer
refreshments in the Philadelphia
area.
Kulik says he doesn’t believe
the federal government should
require people to carry health
insurance, as the law does. And
he can understand worries about
the cost to taxpayers. On the
other hand, he’s been able to
slash what his family pays for
health insurance by purchasing
coverage through the law’s new
insurance markets and by taking
advantage of tax credits to lower
the premiums.
Poll: Sign-ups rise but little love for health law

Editor,
For many, Memorial Day means
picnics, barbecues and outdoor activi-
ties. While traditional observance of
Memorial Day has faded over the
years, it is important to continue to
celebrate the true meaning by remem-
bering all those who sacrificed their
lives while serving our nation.
This Memorial Day, give thanks to
the men and women who fought for
our country by visiting a local parade
or memorial service, donning patriot-
ic gear and flying your American flag
at half-staff.
More importantly, take a moment
from your day to stop and remember
all those that so humbly gave their
lives for the betterment of our nation.

Party politics in judicial race
Editor,
Campaign pieces have been hitting
our mail boxes for the races for
Superior Court judge. As one would
expect, candidates have impressive
endorsements from civic and elected
leaders. However, quite unexpectedly,
attorney Jeff Hayden seems to be
stressing partisanship, and is in
effect promoting himself as the
“Democrat party” candidate for judge.
I do not know and do not care what
the party registration is for the other
candidates.
Ajudgeship election, beyond all
others, is non-partisan. What I want
to know about a candidate is his or
her qualification for the job, such as
relevant experience, proper judicial
temperament, demonstrated ability to
treat each person fairly and good
judgment. Attorney Hayden fails the
good judgment test. Injecting party
labels in a judicial race is just wrong.
Each candidate is understandably
proud of endorsements received
(though Mr. Hayden and the other
attorney candidate for a different seat
I am sure regret listing the disgraced
state Sen. Leland Yee in their ballot
statement), but it is one thing to
receive an endorsement from a
respected elected leader and another to
be promoted as the candidate of a par-
ticular party.
You can check out each of the judi-
cial candidate’s websites to see what
they say about their own experience
qualifies them to be “judging” you and
me. As you do, please consider the
“good judgment” quality as well.

More Tai Wu
Editor,
I have followed the stories in the
Daily Journal, read the letters to you
and witnessed firsthand the issues and
problems regarding the Tai Wu restau-
rant in Millbrae. My family moved
here in the 1950s and I can safely say
that I haven’t seen such an uproar
over a restaurant in all the years I
have lived here. The problems are
being addressed and that is a good
thing, but the big question is “how
was this restaurant approved by the
Planning Commission and the City
Council?”
We trust our officials to make a
sound judgment, to look at all the
facts — including traffic, parking,
noise, etc. In my opinion, this was
not a sound judgment. My hope is
that all the issues are resolved, espe-
cially the parking, so residents can
have their neighborhood back.
Having said that, my belief is that the
approval for a restaurant at this loca-
tion was a mistake.

Too busy to be informed?
Editor,
For those of us fortunate enough to
afford living in the Bay Area, our
lives are busy. It is hard to keep up
with work, family activities and exer-
cise, let alone being informed. Our
lives are inundated with so many
responsibilities that something has
to suffer. Even voting is a project.
There are so many issues to keep up
with. Thus, the percentage of those
voting at election time is low, as
important as this American right is.
The normal individual just can’t do all
that is required of him to live in the
Bay Area.
Recently, I have asked various
Safeway employees if they know any-
thing about their new owner. This is
an investment group out of New York
called Cerberus. There are certain
things we need to make time for
sometimes, as hard as it is. In the
case of Safeway employees, it would
be a good idea to spend a little time
Googling Cerberus to learn more
them. Check out what the Greek word
means; this is a message in itself.
Recently there were stories in local
papers about Cerberus and there acqui-
sition of Albertson’s Grocery Stores.
There are no longer any Albertson’s
stores in Northern California, one
article said.
Personally, I used to buy building
materials from a company called Blue
Linx. At one time this was part of a
company called Georgia Pacific. Blue
Linx had many locations west of the
Rockies. Not any more. Cerberus
owns Blue Linx.

Measure AA: Saving our open
spaces for future generations
Editor,
The beauty of San Mateo County is
undeniable, but it wasn’t that long
ago that the rolling coastal lands and
old farmsteads here were threatened
by sprawl. Today, much of that land is
no longer in jeopardy, thanks to the
foresight of preservationists and
environmental groups.
This June, county voters have an
opportunity to take the next step in
preserving the open spaces that make
our county special. Measure AAis a
$300 million bond placed on the bal-
lot by the Midpeninsula Regional
Open Space District, which will
ensure that future generations of
county residents have access to some
of the most pristine countryside in
the state.
Midpen and its citizen advisors
have identified 25 projects that pro-
vide the broadest possible benefit .
The bond will be used to develop 200
miles of trails, linking existing open
space areas and opening access to
62,000 acres of land that has been set
aside in perpetuity. Many of the proj-
ects also protect farms and expand
grazing on our scenic and still-rural
San Mateo Coast, providing local
food and local jobs.
Measure AAhas been endorsed by
the county supervisors and nearly
every elected official, public agency,
business organization, community
leader and environmental group in the
region. We all understand that its pas-
sage will go a long way toward keep-
ing the threat of development at bay
and saving the beauty of San Mateo
County for those who come after us.

Letters to the editor
Not in vain
“I
n Flanders fields the poppies blow, Between
the crosses, row on row, That mark our place;
and in the sky, The larks, still bravely
singing, fly, Scarce heard amid the guns below. ”
The somber first stanza of John McCrae’s poem In
Flanders Fields reminds us of what Memorial Day is all
about — honoring our war dead. Monday’s holiday is not
about three-day weekends, trips to the beach, cookouts
or car racing. It is not even about honoring our military
veterans (honored in November). It is instead about
remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, so
that we can live in liberty in a free land.
Our God-given liberties, those for which so many have
died, are found in the stirring words of the Declaration of
Independence, “We hold these
truths to be self-evident, that
all men are created equal, that
they are endowed by their
Creator with certain unalien-
able Rights, that among these
are Life, Liberty and the pursuit
of Happiness. That to secure
these rights, Governments are
instituted among Men, deriv-
ing their just powers from the
consent of the governed.”
It is for these ideals that
brave men and women have
died, and it is why we honor
their sacrifice on Memorial Day.
You can take part in honoring them by attending a
local Memorial Day service, including one held at
Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno beginning
at 10:30 a.m. The program sponsored by the Avenue of
the Flags Committee, features Col. Steven Butow, com-
mander, 129th Rescue Wing, California Air National
Guard at Moffett Federal Airfield in Mountain View, and
Gold Star father Kevin Graves.
Graves is founder of Some Gave All — The Joey Graves
Foundation, which is a coalition of Gold Star families,
veterans and patriotic Americans, which he started after
the death of his son, U.S. Army Specialist Joseph Graves
in 2006.
The Golden Gate National Cemetery is a fitting place
for such a ceremony, as it is the final resting place for
many Americans killed in action, some famous but most
just ordinary men and women who did their duty by
answering the call of their country. These include Sgt.
Paul Foster from San Mateo, who served in the U.S.
Marine Corps Reserve, 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines, 3rd
Marine Division.
Sgt. Foster received the Medal of Honor for his actions
in October 1967 in Vietnam, when according to the cita-
tion, “a hand grenade landed in the midst of Sergeant
Foster and his five companions. Realizing the danger, he
shouted a warning, threw his armored vest over the
grenade, and unhesitatingly placed his own body over
the armored vest. When the grenade exploded, Sergeant
Foster absorbed the entire blast with his own body and
was mortally wounded. His heroic actions undoubtedly
saved his comrades from further injury or possible
death.”
The cemetery also contains the remains of 24 black
sailors who loaded munitions in degrading and unsafe
conditions during World War II. They died while loading
Liberty ships in the Port Chicago munitions explosion
of July 17, 1944. Badly disfigured, they were unidentifi-
able and are buried as unknowns.
Just a few months after the terrible battle of
Gettysburg, President Lincoln reflected on the sacrifices
of those who had died. He recognized that the meaning of
their sacrifice was lived out day to day by the living —
that our actions are what honor the sacrifice of those
who have died in defense of our freedom and liberty, like
Sgt. Foster and the 24 sailors.
In what is now known as the Gettysburg Address, he
made clear that, “It is for us the living, rather, to be dedi-
cated here to the unfinished work which they who fought
here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us
to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before
us-that from these honored dead we take increased devo-
tion to that cause for which they gave the last full meas-
ure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these
dead shall not have died in vain.”
This Memorial Day, what do you resolve, what will
you do, to ensure that our honored dead will not have died
in vain?

Call it the Great Slog.
Stocks are bumbling along this year
after a gangbuster 2013.
The upward grind is underscored by the
Standard & Poor’s 500 index, which
closed above 1,900 for the first time on
Friday. The index has eked out a gain of
2.8 percent this year compared with a 16
percent increase over the same period
last year.
Other major indexes haven’t fared any
better. The Dow Jones industrial average
and the Nasdaq composite are barely
positive for 2014.
The market’s five-year bull run has
slowed as investors become more even-
ly split between those that remain opti-
mistic on the outlook for stocks and the
economy, and those that think it’s time
for a sell-off. Investors haven’t seen a
“correction,” Wall Street-speak for a
drop of 10 percent of more, for an unusu-
ally long time.
“People have been waiting for this
huge correction, but as soon as we have
even a little bit of a pullback, people see
the value in it, and they’re jumping in,”
said Karyn Cavanaugh, senior market
strategist at Voya Investment
Management.
Cavanaugh believes that there will be
a “spring snapback,” in the economy.
Company earnings, already at record
levels, will keep climbing and support
stock prices.
The S&P500 rose 8.04 points, or 0.4
percent, to close at 1,900.53. The index
first rose above 1,900 during trading on
May 13, but fell back to close below
that level.
The Dow climbed 63.19 points, or
0.4 percent, to end at 1,606.27. The
Nasdaq rose 31.47 points, or 0.8 per-
cent, to 4,185.81.
Investors bid up homebuilder stocks
following news that sales of new U.S.
homes increased last month. Lennar
rose $1.55, or 4 percent, to $40.54.
D.R. Horton rose 92 cents, or 4.1 per-
cent, to $23.57.
The Commerce Department reported
that sales of U.S. new homes rose 6.4
percent in April after slumping in the
previous two months.
“While it wasn’t a stellar number, it
was not weak and it helps assuage fears”
that the housing recovery is weakening,
said Quincy Krosby, a market strategist
with Prudential Financial. “It really did
help set the tone of the market.”
On Friday, investors favored stocks
that stand to fare better than others in a
strengthening economy. Gains were led
by technology, materials and consumer
discretionary stocks.
The S&P 500 has gained 180 percent
since bottoming out in March, 2009
during the Great Recession. Stocks are
now in the second-longest bull market
since 1946, according to data from S&P
Capital IQ. The index has also gone 2
1/2 years without a correction.
Typically those declines occur once
every 18 months.
Another sign that investors have
been more nervous this year than last is
that while the S&P 500 has ground
higher, the riskier parts of the stock
market, such as small-company stocks,
social media and biotechnology stocks
have had sharp sell-offs.
The Russell 2000, an index that tracks
small company stocks, is down 3.2 per-
cent this year at 1,126.19. The index
has flirted with a correction after falling
as much as 9.3 percent from its March 4
high of 1,208.65.
Many investors still remain opti-
mistic though, pointing to record com-
pany earnings and the Federal Reserve.
In the first quarter of the year compa-
nies in the S&P 500 earned an average
of $27.59 a share, the second-highest
level recorded, falling just below the
$28.46 per share earned in the fourth
quarter of 2013. Thus far during the eco-
nomic recovery, companies have boost-
ed earnings by cutting costs. As the
economy continues to strengthen the
hope among investors is that overall
demand will improve and corporations
will start reporting higher revenues.
S&P 500 closes above 1,900 for first time
Workers in tech case
likely to get average of $4,000
SAN FRANCISCO — Nearly 60,000 high-
tech workers are likely to receive an average
of $4,000 apiece in a settlement of a class-
action lawsuit alleging Apple and Google
conspired in an illegal cartel of Silicon
Valley employers that secretly refused to
recruit each other’s engineers.
The estimate is based upon an analysis of
court documents, including the terms of a
$324.5 million settlement outlined for the
first time in a filing made late Thursday.
If approved, the $324.5 million settle-
ment will be paid by Apple Inc., Google Inc.
and two other companies, Intel Corp. and
Adobe Systems Inc., accused of colluding to
corral their top technology workers.
Oil above $104 ahead
of U.S. holiday, Ukraine vote
The price of oil rose above $104 a barrel
Friday ahead of a holiday weekend in the U.S.
and national elections in Ukraine on Sunday.
Benchmark U.S. crude for July delivery
gained 61 cents to $104.35 a barrel on the
New York Mercantile Exchange. Oil ended
the week with a gain of $2.33 a barrel, or 2.3
percent. Brent crude, a benchmark for inter-
national oils, added 18 cents to $110.54 on
the ICE Futures exchange in London.
Ukrainians vote Sunday in an early presi-
dential election that could be a crucial step
toward resolving the country’s crisis, but
clashes between pro-Russia separatists and
government forces appeared to be heating up.
Business briefs

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Sales of U.S. new
homes recovered in April after slumping in
the previous two months. But Americans are
still buying new homes at a slower pace
than they did a year ago.
The Commerce Department said Friday
that sales of new homes rose 6.4 percent
last month to a seasonally adjusted annual
rate of 433,000. That compares with an
upwardly revised annual pace of 407,000 in
March, when purchases fell 6.9 percent.
Buying had dropped 4.4 percent in February,
in part because of winter snowstorms.
Demand for newly built homes remains
one of the missing pieces of the nearly 5-
year-old recovery from the Great Recession.
A lack of affordability has limited buying
around the country. Sales of new homes are
running at roughly half the rate of a healthy
real estate market.
Warmer weather has yet to heat up the
housing market after a harsh winter slowed
sales in January and February. Higher prices
and mortgage rates over the past year have
sidelined many would-be buyers.
Sales during April surged in the Midwest
and edged up in the South. Home-buying
was flat in the West and fell in the Northeast.
Yelena Shulyatyeva, an economist at BNP
Paribas, noted that the 47.4 percent
increase in Midwest sales likely came from
the start of the spring buying season and
that similar levels of growth are “not likely
to continue.”
“The broader trend remains one of weak
underlying demand,” Shulyatyeva said in a
client note.
New-home sales have declined 4.2 percent
over the past 12 months.
The median sales price, which can be
volatile, fell a slight 2.1 percent during the
past month to $275,800.
Buying has been slow across much of the
country after climbing in the first half of
2013. Last year’s gains and a limited supply
of homes pushed up prices to levels that
strained household budgets for potential
buyers.
New-home sales rose 6.4 percent in April

NEW YORK — Visa and MasterCard are
renewing a push to speed the adoption of
microchips into U.S. credit and debit cards
in the wake of recent high-profile data
breaches, including this week’s revelation
that hackers stole consumer data from
eBay’s computer systems.
Card processing companies argue that a
move away from the black magnetic strips
on the backs of credit cards would eliminate
a substantial amount of U.S. credit card
fraud. They say it’s time to offer U.S. con-
sumers the greater protections microchips
provide by joining Canada, Mexico and
most of Western Europe in using cards with
the more advanced technology.
Chips aren’t perfect, says Carolyn
Balfany, MasterCard’s group head for U.S.
product delivery, but the extra barrier they
present is one of the reasons criminals
often choose to target U.S.-issued cards,
whose magnetic strips are easy to replicate.
“Typically, fraudsters are going to go to
the path of least resistance,” Balfany says.
The chip technology hasn’t been adopted
in the U.S. because of costs and disputes
over how the network would operate.
Retailers have long balked at paying for
new cash registers and back office systems
to handle the new cards. There have been
clashes between retailers, card issuers and
processors over which processing networks
will get access to the new system and
whether to stick with a signature-based sys-
tem or move to one that requires a personal
identification number instead. These techni-
cal decisions impact how much retailers and
customers have to pay — and how much
credit card issuers make — each time a card
is used.

STANFORD — Julian Green first met most
of his U.S. soccer teammates just a few
months ago at a training session in Europe
shortly before the German-American com-
mitted to playing for the United States.
DeAndre Yedlin’s two brief appearances
for the national team came after the U.S. had
already qualified for the upcoming tourna-
ment in Brazil.
John Brooks made his debut with the
national team last summer and has just three
exhibition appearances
in his career.
Yet those three untested
youngsters who have
never played a World Cup
qualifier much less on the
bigger stage of the main
tournament were picked
for the 23-man roster
ahead of more proven
players like Landon
Donovan, Maurice Edu
and Clarence Goodson.
“They are up to the task,” coach Jurgen
Klinsmann said Friday. “Obviously, emo-
tionally it’s a lot to handle, but we have to
run them through that process. They are
ready for it.”
They might need to be if the United States
is to make it through a difficult group that
features world powers Germany and Portugal
and American nemesis Ghana.
The roster includes just five players who
have played in a World Cup — Clint
Dempsey, Michael Bradley, Tim Howard,
Jozy Altidore and DeMarcus Beasley — and
seven players 24 or younger.
Green, who turns 19 next month, is by far
the most untested of the group despite being
a heralded prospect on Bayern Munich’s
reserve team who was courted by both
Germany and the United States for an inter-
national commitment.
He has just six minutes of first-team expe-
rience with Bayern Munich. He practiced
two days with the U.S. team in Germany
ahead of an exhibition in Cyprus on March
5 and committed to the Americans later that
month.

Hillsdale’s Sharona Mataele takes a pitch off the back of her knee during a game against
Capuchino earlier this season.The Knights will need to take advantage of every opportunity
they get if they are to advance all the way to the CCS Division II championship game.They must

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
The Hillsdale softball team has won three
Central Coast Section titles in the pro-
gram’s history: in 1983, 1990 and 1991, all
under Randy Metheany, who stepped down
as coach in the mid 1990s.
Metheany returned to helm the softball
team prior to the 2008 season and the
Knights have once again become one of the
top programs in CCS.
The only thing missing, however, is a
fourth CCS championship. Chalk it up to
playing in arguably the toughest division
in CCS, Division II, which has been domi-
nated in recent memory by Mitty.
The Knights won’t face Mitty unless they
make it to the finals — which they haven’t
accomplished in Metheany’s second go-
around with Hillsdale.
Before Hillsdale can even begin thinking
about Mitty, however, the Knights have a
matchup 10 a.m. Saturday at Hawes Park in
Redwood City against another West
Catholic Athletic League team in
Presentation.
Hillsdale, the No. 3 seed, boasts a 20-7
record in 2014, the fourth time in five years
the Knights have won at least 20 games. As
a team, the Knights are batting .269 on the
season, but that is offset by a team pitching
ERAof 1.26.
Presentation, the No. 6 seed, compiled a
22-7 mark this year and are batting .346 as
a team, while the Panthers pitchers are
allowing just over two runs per contest.
“I went down to see them (in a tournament
earlier in the season). They’re a good soft-
ball team,” Metheany said of the Panthers.
“I have to expect to see a good softball
team.

INDIANAPOLIS — The cruel Twitter posts
came fast and furious Friday as Marco
Andretti and Graham Rahal participated in
their final practice session for the
Indianapolis 500.
“Would Graham Rahal have a ride in the
series if his last name wasn’t Rahal?” read
one.
“You mean to tell me, that Marco Andretti
is being a cry-baby on the radio?!” read
another, along with a sarcastic (hash)sur-
prised and (hash)spoiledbrat.
It’s May, which means the faults and fail-
ures of Andretti and Rahal are in the spot-

royal watchers anxiously awaiting a wed-
ding or a baby, open-wheel racing fans
obsesses over when these two young crown
princes of IndyCar will step up their games
and fulfill their destiny as the American stars
the series desperately needs.
Andretti is burdened by his last name.
Mario Andretti, his grandfather, won 52
races and ranks second on the all-time list.
Michael, his father, ranks third at 42 career
victories.
Marco, in his ninth season in IndyCar,
has two wins.
It’s no easier for Rahal. His father,
Bobby, has 24 career victories, won the
1986 Indianapolis 500 and is a three-time
series champion.
Graham has one win in 100 starts since
2007.
Rahal, who won his only race in 2008,
points out that he just turned 25 this year
and his father didn’t win his first race until
he was 30.
“A lot of people don’t think about that,
though, they just look at me and go, ‘Oh,
well you won your first one at 19 and

Despite seeing six Peninsula Athletic
League teams, plus Serra, eliminated in the
first round, there are still three San Mateo
County teams left in the Central Coast
Section playoffs.
Below is a look at the matchups for
Saturday’s games.
Division I
No. 3 Sequoia (20-7-1) vs.
No. 6 Christopher-Gilroy (15-12),

The Cherokees won their first Central
Coast Section game since 1998 with a 5-2
win over Fremont-Sunnyvale Thursday,
while the Cougars beat No. 11 Alvarez 6-5.
The strength of the Cherokees this season
has been its pitching, with a staff ERA of
1.63. They threw their ace, Kyle Cambron,
in the win over the Firebirds, but Cameron
Greenough has been nearly as good, with a
2.24 ERA. Look for Kenny Belanger to fac-
tor in at some point as well. In nine appear-
ances, he has a 1.33 ERA.
Offensively, Sequoia has a team batting
average of .281.
Christopher went 7-8 against teams that
qualified for CCS — including losses to
Leigh (No. 1 Open Division) and San Benito
(No. 5 Open Division).
No. 12 Menlo-Atherton (17-12-1) vs.
No. 4 North Salinas (19-9),

The Bears advanced to the quarterfinals
with a 2-1 win over No. 5 Watsonville,
while the Vikings posted a 3-0 win over No.

M-A has been one of the most maddening
teams around this season. With talent up and

D
id you know that 30 million Americans
suffer from back and neck pain every day?
Sciatica and herniated discs are often
misunderstood. They can cause pain and
numbness in the back, neck, legs, and feet. This
pain affects everything that you do, from work
to play, and ultimately your quality of life. We
are here to tell you that there is hope. We have
the technology and experience to help you fnd
relief from sciatica and back pain. At Bay Area
Disc Centers, we have helped thousands of pain
sufferers just like you. We offer only the most
advanced non-surgical treatments.
Are pain pills effective, long-term solutions
when dealing with Sciatica and Back Pain?
ABSOLUTELY NOT!
Until now, people have masked their pain by
frequently taking prescription pain pills. This
type of pain relief is temporary. Often these
treatments lead to even more health problems
or worse yet –addiction. Many people innocently
fall into abusing prescription pain pills while
initially using them to alleviate real, constant pain.
Is Surgery the Answer?
It is true that surgery may be the answer for
certain types of back injuries. When considering
your options, ask yourself this question…
If there is a solution to back pain that doesn’t
require surgery, is it worth exploring?
The Solution: TDC
TM
Therapy
TDC Therapy–Traction Decompression Combined
Therapy–is a proven treatment exclusive to Disc
Centers of America doctors for the relief of neck
and lower back pain. By utilizing traction that’s
isolated to the spinal segment involved, the
purpose is to create spinal decompression as a
result to specifc traction.
TDC Therapy offers a significant success rate
and patients have experienced dramatic pain
relief and healing. This non surgical solution
is changing the way doctors treat severe disc
conditions. TDC Therapy is a unique and
innovative approach for the relief of neck and
lower back syndromes, including:
º Herniated or buÌging discs
º De-generative disc disease
º Posterior facet syndrome
º SpinaÌ Stenosis
º Sciatica
TDC Therapy is non surgical and non invasive. It is
a gentle form of traction and disc decompression.
The treatment is not only safe, but also
comfortable and relaxing. The goal is symptomatic
relief and structural correction.
How Does TDC
TM
Therapy Work?
TDC Therapy can isolate a specifc vertebra and
distract the vertebrae surrounding an injured
disc 5 to 7 millimeters. TDC Therapy treatment
isolates the specific vertebrae that are causing
the pain. The 25 to 30 minute treatment
provides static, intermittent, and cycling
forces on structures that may be causing
back pain. Negative pressure promotes the
diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrients into
the vertebral disc area, thereby re-hydrating
the degenerated disc. Repeated pressure
differential promotes retraction of a herniated
nucleus pulposus.
The TDC Therapy treatment works to reduce
pressure on the vertebral joints,promote
retraction of herniated discs, and promote self
healing and rehabilitation of damaged discs,
thereby relieving neck or lower back pain.
Why Bay Area Disc Centers
Dr. Thomas Ferrigno D.C. and his team have vast
experience in treating patients suffering from
severe disc disease. Dr. Ferrigno has performed
over 25,000 decompression treatments and
is currently only 1 of 2 doctors in the state of
California who is Nationally Certified in Spinal
Decompression Therapy. Dr. Ferrigno is also part
of the Disc Centers of America Team who are a
national group of doctors that have gone through
extensive training that follow the protocols set up
by The International Medical Advisory Board on
Spinal Decompression, and utilizes the protocols
set forward by Dr. Norman SheaÌy the Honorary
Chairman, former Harvard professor, and probabÌy
the most published doctor in the world on spinal
decompression therapy.

SAN FRANCISCO — Pablo Sandoval and
Brandon Hicks homered to back a wild Tim
Lincecum, and the San Francisco Giants beat the
Minnesota Twins 6-2 on Friday night.
Lincecum (4-3) struck out four and walked six
in six innings. He allowed five hits and also had
two wild pitches, escaping trouble in nearly
every inning.
Joe Mauer and Chris Parmelee drove in
Minnesota’s only runs in the third.
Sandoval hit a three-run shot in the first, Hicks
hit his eighth homer off Kyle Gibson (4-4) in
the fourth and drove in another run in the sev-
enth.
Gibson gave up five runs and five hits in five
innings, working quickly and in command for
all but the two homers. He struck out four and
walked none.
San Francisco opened its six-game homestand
with some pop at the plate and slick maneuver-
ing on the mound.
Hunter Pence extended his hitting streak to 10
games with an infield single after Angel Pagan
doubled leading off the first. Pence was original-
ly ruled out, Giants manager Bruce Bochy chal-
lenged the call and umpires overturned it after a
33-second video review.
After Pagan was thrown out at home on Buster
Posey’s grounder, Sandoval sent the first pitch
he saw over the brick wall in right to put the
Giants ahead 3-0. It was Sandoval’s fifth home
run this season.
Mauer hit an RBI triple and Parmelee drove in
another run for Minnesota in the third to slice
San Francisco’s lead to 3-2. In the bottom of the
inning, Pagan tripled and scored for San
Francisco after shortstop Eduardo Escobar could-
n’t corral Pence’s grounder.

TORONTO — Liam Hendriks won his sea-
son debut, Steve Tolleson hit a two-run home
run and the Toronto Blue Jays were victorious
for the ninth time in 11 games with a 3-2
defeat of the Oakland Athletics on Friday
night.
Brandon Moss homered for the seventh time
in 18 games for the Athletics, who lost their
second straight following a five-game win-
ning streak. Oakland’s loss was just its third in
the past 14 games overall.
Toronto evened its home record at 11-11 and
beat Oakland for the fourth time in 12 meet-
ings north of the border.
Promoted from Triple-A to face the
Athletics, who came in with the best record in
the majors, Hendriks (1-0) allowed one run and
three hits in 5 2-3 innings. The right-hander
walked three and struck out three.
Aaron Loup pitched 1 1-3 innings, Steve
Delabar got one out in the eighth and Brett
Cecil got the final two, striking out Derek
Norris to strand runners at first and second.
Casey Janssen finished for his sixth save in
six chances, stranding Coco Crisp at third as
Jed Lowrie grounded out.
Tolleson hit Toronto’s ML-leading 68th
home run when he connected off left-hander
Scott Kazmir (5-2) in the second, his first of
the year. The drive also scored Brett Lawrie,
who reached on a fielder’s choice.
Athrowing error by Kazmir helped the Blue
Jays extend their lead in the third. Kevin Pillar
hit a leadoff double and went to third when
Kazmir wheeled and made a pickoff attempt
even though no one was covering the base.
Jose Reyes followed with an RBI grounder.

LISBON, Portugal — Cristiano Ronaldo
seems certain to be fit to lead Real Madrid’s
attack against Atletico Madrid in the
Champions League final on Saturday.
However, Real coach Carlo Ancelotti has
lingering fitness doubts
about Ronaldo’s strike
partner Karim Benzema
and defender Pepe.
“Cristiano doesn’t
have any problems, he
has trained well,”
Ancelotti said Friday
about the competition’s
16-goal record scorer,
who missed Madrid’s
final league match last
weekend to rest a leg
muscle injury.
Benzema and Pepe have not trained this
week due to hamstring and calf injuries,
respectively.
Ancelotti said the team’s practice session
Friday evening on the Stadium of Light
pitch “will be crucial to decide” if they can
start.
Madrid’s vaunted forward line — the so-
called BBC of Gareth Bale, Benzema and
Cristiano — have combined to score 26
goals in this Champions League season,
plus 63 in La Liga.
Benzema has thrived playing between the
two speedy wingers, though Ancelotti
played down the significance of the France
forward, or any one player in a city derby
between teams which have met four times
already this season.
“Benzema has had a great season and I
don’t know that we are losing him,” the
coach said, adding “we will use another
player who has similar characteristics.”
“This is not going to be a match where
individuals count so much as the two
teams,” Ancelotti said.
Atletico has injury concerns about its
own star forward, Brazilian-born Spain
international Diego Costa, who had a horse
placenta treatment on his right thigh this
week.
Real defender Sergio Ramos said he hoped
all the best players lined up Saturday.
“If Diego Costa is there or (Arda) Turan or
any other, well, that’s no problem as far as I
am concerned,” the Spain defender said.
“What concerns me is Karim, Pepe, Cris
who have been injured in these past few
days.”
For Real, attacking midfielder Isco could
be asked to replace Benzema, whose France
teammate Raphael Varane is a likely deputy
for Pepe.
Ancelotti is deprived of holding midfield-
er Xabi Alonso who is suspended, and
Germany’s Sami Khedira could start just two
weeks after returning from a six-month
absence due to a knee injury.
Real’s Ronaldo fit for Champions
League; Benzema, Pepe in doubt

Sterling to surrender
control of Clippers
LOS ANGELES — Donald Sterling is turn-
ing his ownership stake in the Los Angeles
Clippers over to his estranged wife, and she is
in talks with the NBAto sell the team, a per-
son with knowledge of the negotiations told
The Associated Press on Friday.
The individual, who wasn’t authorized to
speak publicly about the deal, said the couple
reached the agreement after weeks of discus-
sion.
“Donald Sterling is out, and there will be
new owners,” the individual told the AP.
Neither Shelly Sterling nor her attorney had
any comment Friday. They have been in talks
with NBAlawyers for the last couple weeks.
“She wants to be able to say, ‘I’m selling
the team, not the NBAis selling the team,’and
have meaningful control over that transac-
tion,” the individual told the AP.

of the youngest guys in the series. That’s no
excuse, and I hope I have a long, long career
ahead of me. When you look at my dad’s suc-
cess that he had — Indy wins, champi-
onships, race wins — he didn’t even get
into an Indy car until he was 30.”
Rahal notes that the successful drivers in
IndyCar right now are all in their 30s. Tony
Kanaan, the defending Indianapolis 500
winner, was 38 when he scored his break-
through win. Ryan Hunter-Reay was 31
when he won the 2012 title in his 10th sea-
son at the top level.
“At my age, he was in the same boat as
me,” Rahal said. “He wasn’t really winning
all the time. He was struggling, bouncing
around between teams and stuff and all of a
sudden, it’s all come together. ”
Andretti was 19 when he made his IndyCar
debut driving for his father at Andretti
Autosport. He won as a rookie, then went
four more years before he made his way back
to Victory Lane. Now 27, he hasn’t won
since 2011 and is mired in a 46-race losing
streak.
His father thinks age may very well be the
problem for both Andretti and Rahal.
“Part of it is they started so young and, in
hindsight, maybe they were too young,”
Michael Andretti said. “You look at it, they
are 25 and 27? Geez, Louise. I think I was in
my third year of racing at that age. But the
pressure they are under? That comes with the
territory.”
Marco, so weary of the public perception
that he’s been given his ride, hasn’t earned
it and wouldn’t be with one of the top teams
in IndyCar if not for nepotism, refuses to
offer an excuse for his performance. If he
points to age or offers a reason, fans will
call it an excuse and accuse him of whining.
“Definitely, I know I’ve been in the game
along time, I’ve led almost a thousand laps,
but only two wins — I wish I had more to
show for it,” he said. “I’m in my critics’ cor-
ner. I agree with them. I’m just as frustrated.
All I can do is keep working. We do have the
luxury of starting younger nowadays, but
you’re never going to hear any excuses from
me.”
Among his critics is Graham Rahal, who
actively engages in the notorious Andretti-
Rahal rivalry. While Marco has driven for a
top organization for his entire career, Rahal
is now driving for his third owner — his
father — and the results have yet to come.
“The last few years have been tough, and
Andretti has been the dominant team, how
he hasn’t won more races kind of surprises
me,” Graham said.
They both get their chance to silence
their critics on Sunday in the Indianapolis
500. Marco, who has come so close to win-
ning at Indianapolis Motor Speedway mul-
tiple times, starts sixth. Rahal, who has
struggled to find speed for two weeks, is
20th.
Rahal understands clearly what a win by
either driver could do for the series, which
needs its two young drivers with the famous
last names to put up the results that will
move them into a transcendent spotlight.
“It would do more for this race than any-
body else in this race,” Graham said. “Those
two names around here — to have those two
names fighting it out at the end of this
thing, I guarantee you there’d be a lot of
people out there on their feet.”

MIAMI — Indiana’s Paul George will play
in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals,
which comes as no surprise to the Miami
Heat.
They were expecting him there all along.
The Pacers announced Friday night that
George has been cleared “to return to normal
basketball activity,” a decision made three
days after he was concussed in Game 2 of the
Indiana-Miami series.
“Barring any unforeseen complications,
he will play” on Saturday in Miami, the
Pacers said.
So that settled one lineup issue.
The Heat now have a lineup decision to
make.
Greg Oden — whose last postseason
appearance was April 30, 2009 — may be
inserted into the Heat rotation after show-
ing Miami’s coaches in recent days that
back issues that slowed him down for weeks
may finally be a thing of the past. Heat
coach Erik Spoelstra suggested that Oden
“could” get some minutes, which would
almost certainly come against Indiana cen-
ter Roy Hibbert.
“If coach needs me, I’m ready to play, ”
Oden said. “I’m definitely ready whenever he
needs me.”
The series is tied at a game apiece, with
Miami grabbing the home-court edge away
by rallying for an 87-83 win at Indianapolis
in Game 2. The teams have been off since,
which figures to be a blessing of sorts for
the Pacers — who had several players limp-
ing and ailing late in that game, with
George’s concussion the most notable mal-
ady.
The back of George’s head was struck by
Dwyane Wade’s knee as both were trying to
get control of a loose ball during the fourth
quarter of that game. George remained in the
game but was basically a non-factor the rest
of the way, and Miami owned the final min-
utes. The concussion came to light only
after George revealed postgame that he
briefly “blacked out.”
“I probably should have kept that to
myself,” George said. “It just made a mess.
That’s something that, going forward, just
keep that between myself and the training
staff.”
The Heat never even considered the possi-
bility that George wouldn’t play in Game 3.
“Why wouldn’t he?” Heat star LeBron
James asked.
Wade said he wanted to see George out
there, because competitors always want to
play against the best, particularly at this
time of year. And in these playoffs, no one
has looked better on the road — especially
defensively — than the Pacers, who still
haven’t won even two consecutive home
games in this postseason but have won five
in a row away from home.
George expected to play, Heat thinking about Oden

“There’s no patsies at this point of the
season.”
If the Knights can pull out a win Saturday
morning at Hawes Park in Redwood City,
they would face the winner of No. 10
Westmont and No. 2 Pioneer in the semifi-
nals next week, with the prospect of Mitty
looming in the championship game.
The Knights have experienced nothing
but frustration in the playoffs over the last
few years. They have advanced to the semi-
finals three of the last four years, only to
fall short of the finals. In the Division III
bracket in 2010, they lost to eventual
champion Valley Christian. In the Division
II semifinals in 2011, they fell to Mitty,
which went on to win the crown. Last year,
the Knights avoided a WCAL team in the
semifinals, instead losing to Mt. Pleasant.
Despite the disappointing defeats,
Metheany says he’s not frustrated by them.
“I like the challenge (of playing high-cal-
iber teams),” Metheany said. “I think you
can learn things.
“I’m honored to be there (in CCS), but you
want to walk away winning that last game.
We have to find a way to scratch and claw
more.”
With only two seniors, eight juniors and
six sophomores, the Knights still have to
find a way to win the big games. The only
way to do that is to do that — win the big
game.
“They have to know how hard it is to take
that next step,” Metheany said. “They just
have to prove it to themselves on the field.”
Division I
No. 1 Carlmont (24-3) vs.
No.8 Milpitas (20-8), 2 p.m. at Hawes Park
For the second time in three years, the
Scots are the top seed in the Division I
bracket.
And yet the last time they were No. 1,
they fell to San Benito in the 2012 champi-
onship game, denying them their eighth
CCS crown.
Will this be the year Carlmont gets it
done? The numbers suggest the Scots have
as good a chance as any. As a team, they are
batting .393, with an on-base percentage of
.447. The pitching staff, meanwhile, has a
team ERA of 1.68. But Rebecca Faulkner,
who has thrown 128 innings this season,
has posted an ERA of less than one run per
game.
Milpitas has posted similar numbers, bat-
ting .366 with an on-base percentage of
.413. The Trojans’ pitching is allowing just
over two runs per game this season.
Milpitas advanced to the quarterfinals by
virtue of a 6-5 win over No. 9 Christopher,
while Carlmont had a first-round bye.
Division II
No. 8 Capuchino (17-10) vs.
No. 1 Mitty (27-1), 6 p.m. at PAL Stadium,
San Jose
The Mustangs opened CCS with a con-
vincing 10-0 win over No. 9 Monterey in
the first round of the Division II tourna-
ment, but their chore becomes infinitely
tougher taking on the top-ranked
Monarchs.
The 10 runs scored was a season high for
Capuchino, but Mitty is allowing an aver-
age of less than one run per contest.
Cal-Hi Sports ranks Mitty as the No. 2
team in the state in Division II.
Division III
No. 5 Notre Dame-Belmont (17-11) vs.
No. 4 Half Moon Bay (21-7),
noon Saturday at Hawes Park
The Tigers won their first-round game 4-1
over Pacific Grove, while the Cougars were
down to Castilleja early before cruising to a
12-2 victory.
Notre Dame was 0-4 against the Peninsula
Athletic League’s Bay Division this season,
where Half Moon Bay finished in a tie for
second this season.
The Cougars are led offensively Harlee
Donovan, who leads the team with a .467
batting average and is second on the team in
RBIs with 23. Kallista Leonardos has also
feasted offensively this season, with a .434
batting average and a team-leading 25 RBIs.
Ally Sarabia, a freshman, has been the
Cougars’ horse in the pitcher’s circle this
season, compiling a 19-6 record with a 2.06
ERA.
Cal-Hi Sports has Half Moon Bay ranked
No. 7 in the state in Division IV.

49ers sign rookie Thomas
The San Francisco 49ers have
signed guard Brandon Thomas to a
four-year deal.
The team announced the move
Friday.
Thomas was taken 100th overall
out of Clemson with the last of San
Francisco’s three third-round
picks. He played in 49 games in
college, starting 30 games at tack-
le and nine at guard. He earned first-
team All-ACC honors last season.
Thomas is recovering from a
torn anterior cruciate ligament in
his right knee suffered during a
workout last month.
Bill would exempt medalists
The state Assembly has passed a
bill exempting California athletes
who win Olympic medals from
paying taxes on their cash prizes.
The legislation prompted a spir-
ited debate among lawmakers
about who deserves freedom from
tax collectors.
AB2323 by Republican
Assemblyman Jeff Gorell of
Camarillo heads to the Senate after
passing 53-4 Friday.
He says Olympians deserve the
break for representing their coun-
try and training with little finan-
cial support from the government.
He says many athletes have mea-
ger salaries and make financial sac-
rifices to compete.
Medalists receive honorary pay-
ments from the U.S. Olympic
Committee, generally $25,000 for
gold, $15,000 for silver and
$10,000 for bronze, and are taxed
on that amount.

So much of being a Real Estate Agent in today’s market involves
selling a “Lifestyle.” The Technology Renaissance has given
birth to a generation of moneyed young buyers and investors
looking to establish themselves and their “lifestyle” here in San
Francisco and the Peninsula. A main part of what I love about
this Industry is the ability to help create that “lifestyle” with my
clients. My clients can include the single Tech Hipster looking
for a Williamsburg style loft South of Market, while another
client may be newlyweds expecting their first child looking for
that classic Spanish style 2 bedroom in Burlingame. California
living exudes a certain “lifestyle-” and a privileged one at that.
I sat down with my client and dear friend Clayton Apgar - L.A.
Based Interior Designer at CLAYTON APGAR DESIGN - to
discuss what it means to live the “California Lifestyle” and how
Real Estate and occupation play a role in creating your ideal
California Dream.
Growing up on the East Coast - like many California
transplants - how do you define your ideal California “Lifestyle?”
Several related elements: year-round chances to use the incredible
natural environment (the coastline, the mountains, the magic of
the desert), the opportunity to create a busy yet balanced rhythm
to life, and inspiration from the hubs of creativity that so define
and set apart this state. And, here in LA, amazing Mexican food.
From a truck. My lifestyle appreciates Mexican food from a truck.
What is the most important part - when designing your home - to
keep in mind when sticking to a specific lifestyle theme?
It begins with what you love, and how you’d like to live. There
is, by the way, a distinction between how you think you want to
live or perceive you should based on trends, based on what’s
popular in any one moment, and what actually suits each person
or family. Some of the most valuable work I do with clients at
the beginning of the design process is teasing out these truths -
what a client honestly wants vs what perhaps they have grown
accustomed to. (We’re all good at growing accustomed to things.)
Often this involves the search for essentials and a kind of editing
away clutter and fluff that so easily creeps into life. It means a lot
of discovery - not merely aesthetic or visual, but also practical,
emotional, and psychological. So lifestyle, I’d say, is an honest
expression of what makes one happy, what by turns energizes and
calms, what makes one feel alive, appreciative, and comfortable.
As a Realtor, so much of my job sells a certain “lifestyle” to
my clients – what’s the most exciting thing about the California
Landscape when designing a certain home for one of your
own clients?
Most exciting is the breadth of possibility. It’s remarkable. There’s
so much to work with here.
Personal Question - California Craftsman or Modern loft?
This is not a dodge, but it depends on the particular structure. The
shortest answer is: whichever is more effectively, contextually,
and proportionally achieved. Or put another way, whichever is
the best representation of its aesthetic.

right decision. I love playing here. I’m very
happy. ”
He made his U.S. debut as a substitute in
the 59th minute of an exhibition against
Mexico on April 2. He got an invitation to
this camp and eventually made the team
ahead of Donovan, the U.S. record-holder
with 57 international goals.
Klinsmann said he sees constant
improvement every day from Green and that
he has proven himself worthy of a spot for
Brazil with his play at midfield that has
impressed coaches and teammates during
the training camp.
“In a soccer team, it is very simple,”
Klinsmann said. “They measure themselves
with the quality you bring to the table, not
with the age and not where you are coming
from. They want to see that in the games. We
played over the last 10 days a lot, a lot of
small-side games, very competitive games
and games that you can’t hide. Julian didn’t
hide, not even one second.”
Yedlin, 20, has only slightly more inter-
national experience than Green, getting
called up for the first time for a January camp
that included time in Brazil and playing as a
second-half defensive sub in two exhibi-
tions this year. He was recently pulled from
a game for the Seattle Sounders for poor
play.
“This has been a dream of mine since I was
little,” Yedlin said. “To be able to be here and
be considered part of this group is amazing.”
Brooks, a 21-year-old defender for Hertha
Berlin in Germany, made his U.S. debut last
summer. He was benched twice this season
by his club team for a poor performance in
December and being unable to train last
month because he was hampered by a tattoo
on his back.
“He struggled the last couple of months
with Hertha Berlin on and off the field,”
Klinsmann said. “That’s a process that
every young person goes through. That’s
why these last 10 days have been extremely,
extremely important.”
Klinsmann was tasked with transforming
U.S. soccer ever since he was hired to
replace Bob Bradley in 2011, leading him
to focus on long-term goals as well as the
upcoming World Cup
He signed a contract extension through
the 2018 World Cup in December after the
U.S. received its difficult draw. But he said
the decision to keep some of the untested
young players over proven veterans only
had to do with what was best for the team in
Brazil, even if it may help prepare the team
for the next tournament in Russia.
“Jurgen is doing a couple things. While
he is bringing in as much experience as he
can find worldwide that has an American
passport, he’s also renovating the team and
preparing it for the next cycle,” former U.S.
national team coach Steve Sampson said.
“Julian Green is a good example of that. I
don’t expect Julian Green to see a lot of
minutes, if any minutes, in this World Cup,
however, just by being in that environment
will bode well for him in the next cycle.”

North Salinas captured the Monterey Bay
Athletic League Pacific Division champi-
onship, going 17-1 in the process.
Offensively, the Vikings have seven play-
ers who drove in 10 runs or more this sea-
son, led by senior Zach Foster, who is bat-
ting .419 and has driven in a team-leading
22 runs.
The good news for M-A is the Bears will
miss the Vikings’ ace on the mound.
Sophomore Joseph Gutierrez threw a two-
hitter in Thursday win over Lincoln.
The bad news for the Bears is they will
most likely face junior Isaac Garcia, who
has compiled a 5-1 record with a 0.39 ERA
this season in 36 1/3 innings pitched.
M-A will most likely counter with its co-
ace Matt McGarry, who has the stuff to dom-
inate anyone. A.J. Lemons could also factor
in. Lemons has posted a 1.03 ERA in 13
appearances this season.

1 p.m. at Sacred Heart Prep
The Knights beat Capuchino 2-1 in the
first round, turning a triple play with the
bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh
inning to preserve the win.
The Cardinals had a much easier time,
beating No. 13 Gilroy 10-2.
Santa Cruz finished in a tie for last place,
with Harbor, in the Santa Cruz Coast
Athletic League. But with Soquel, Scotts
Valley and San Lorenzo Valley all qualifying
for the Open Division, it left spots avail-
able in the other divisions, thus allowing
the Cardinals via an at-large bid.
Having used Wyatt Driscoll Wednesday,
Menlo’s greatest concern going into
Saturday is its pitching depth. Junior Austin
D’Ambra and Davis Rich are second and
third behind Wyatt, but those two have a
combined ERAof about 4.00.
The Knights will continue to need their
offense to pick up the pitching. While they
have a decent team batting average of .299,
it’s been their clutch hitting that has been
the difference. Menlo has four batters with
20 or more RBIs on the season. Those four
— Sam Crowder, Mikey Diekroeger, Carson
Gampell and Jared Lucian — are also the
Knights’ best hitters. They’ll need them on
top of their game if they are to advance to
the semifinals for the fifth straight season.

BANGKOK — Ousted members
of Thailand’s former government
surrendered to the new military
junta Friday, as soldiers forcefully
dispersed hundreds of anti-coup
activists who defied a ban on
large-scale gatherings to protest
the army’s seizure of power.
Troops detained at least two
activists during the protest in
downtown Bangkok, which
descended into scuffles but ended
without injury and marked one of
the first open challenges to the
military since Thursday’s coup.
The junta, though, remained
firmly in charge, summoning
more than 100 top political fig-
ures — the entire ousted govern-
ment, their associates and a hand-
ful of their opponents. It also
banned those on its wanted list
from leaving the country.
Among the officials who showed
up at an army compound in
Bangkok were former Prime
Minister Yingluck Shinawatra,
sacked earlier this month for
nepotism by the Constitutional
Court, and her temporary replace-
ment Niwattumrong
Boonsongpaisan, according to
Yingluck’s aide Wim
Rungwattanachinda.
After about 30 minutes,
Yingluck left the facility and was
taken to another army location by
soldiers, said Wim, who added that
it appeared she would not be
immediately released.
It was unclear what the mili-
tary’s intentions were beyond the
summons, which it said had been
issued “to keep peace and order and
solve the country’s problems.”
By nightfall, dozens of the VIPs
who turned themselves in were
still being held, although at least
eight ex-Cabinet ministers had
been released.
Education Minister Chaturon
Chaisang, an outspoken critic of
the military’s intervention in pol-
itics, remained in hiding.
Chaturon said in a Facebook post
that the coup would only worsen
the country’s political atmos-
phere. He vowed not to turn him-
self in, but said he would not resist
arrest.
Most of the country was calm,
and there was little military pres-
ence on Bangkok’s streets.
Although life had largely returned
to normal during the day, an
overnight curfew from 10 p.m. to
5 a.m. was still in effect.
Restrictions on TV broadcasts
and on posting inflammatory
comments on social media
remained in effect, and many Thais
were reluctant to comment pub-
licly on the coup.

t’s as if high school athletes
don’t already have enough
to think about. A‘lucky few’
high school athletes, with the
support of their families, have a
very tough
decision to
make: attend
college or pur-
sue a chance at
a professional
baseball career.
From June 5-7,
the Major
League
Baseball First-
Year Player Draft will take place,
and amateur baseball players all
over the world are offered a chance
at achieving a dream.
Every year, about 1,200 ama-
teurs are picked (from high
schools, colleges and summer
teams) during 40 rounds, and
about one-third of those are high
schoolers. Odds are that less than
five of those high schoolers draft-
ed in any given draft will make
the pros, and approximately 70
kids will get drafted from college
to the pros. But what if players
are the victim of an injury? Or
aren’t developed properly in the
college program they attend?
What’s a baseball player to do
with these odds?
These are 18-year-olds we’re
talking about, and it may not be
their only chance at the dream,
but what if it’s their best chance?
When asked what he would do if
given the option to play profes-
sional baseball straight out of
high school or attend college,
Conor Thane, a junior
infielder/starter for the St. Francis
High School varsity baseball
team, says he would probably
choose to go to college.
“If a baseball career doesn’t
work out, you would want some-
thing to fall back on. With a good
college education, other career
opportunities would be available
to you,” Thane said.
Makes sense — since your
chances of making it to the pros
are so slim, whether you get draft-
ed straight out of high school or
during your college career, you
might as well continue your edu-
cation.
With that, who would want to
deny themselves the experience
of college if granted to them?
Choosing to forgo college means
giving up sharing a dorm and
communal bathroom with your
buddies (which is probably more
of a plus), joining a fraternity and
getting involved in all the other
aspects of college life. This big
of a decision depends on many
factors, though. Christopher

‘Blended’
is just bad
By Jocelyn Noveck
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
To say that the new Adam Sandler movie, “Blended,” is bet-
ter than some of his other recent work — “Jack and Jill,” for
example — isn’t saying much. After all, some natural dis-
asters cause less damage than others. But none are a pos-
itive development.
OK, that’s overly harsh to “Blended” — though not
to “Jack and Jill.” But please understand the frustra-
tion. Some of us are old enough to recall a time
when Sandler made movies that were authenti-
cally funny, and didn’t merely earn laughs by
reminding people of their most puerile
instincts. We also remember acting work
by Sandler that deserved real admira-
tion— remember the 2002 “Punch-
Drunk Love”? Not to mention some
classic moments on “Saturday
Night Live” — but now we’re
REALLYdating ourselves.
From Sandler’s early, goofy,
charming humor, we’ve traveled
to a point where we’re trying to ana-
lyze, in “Blended,” whether his mocking
of feminine hygiene products is better or worse
than his jokes about a young boy’s sexual explo-
rations or a teen girl’s futile efforts to boost her flat
chest.
But there’s something else disappointing about
“Blended,” which stars Sandler and Drew Barrymore (in

LOS ANGELES — If it wasn’t
for the charming top-liners who
can make literary dialogue sound
sexy in their sleep, the war in Fred
Schepisi’s “Words and Pictures”
would have to be called off after
the opening skirmish. The battle-
field is a country prep school
where Clive Owen’s drunken
English teacher and Juliette
Binoche’s prickly art instructor
square off, then pair off, in an
amusing schoolwide debate over
whether literature or painting is
best. The way the challenge
between these two sharp minds
will play out is the only thing that
isn’t a foregone conclusion in the
smooth-as-vodka screenplay, a
middle-brow mashing together of
“Dead Poets Society” and a rom-
com for audiences allergic to vul-
garity and sex scenes.

plays Italian painter Dina Delsanto, a
chance to show off her own artwork, which
is liberally displayed in the film and which
looks considerably better and more
painterly than simple props. Worki ng
with portraiture and large-scale abstrac-
tion, she plays a famous artist struck with
rheumatoid arthritis and increasingly
unable to move her arms and hands freely.
Her solution is to use industrial-size paint
dispensers hanging from overhead hooks
which she can move artistically without
fine brushwork. All these difficulties more
or less justify her fierce anti-social atti-
tude, which Binoche is able to carry off
without becoming an unpleasant character.
Owen pulls out a surprisingly literate
side of himself in the role of Jack Marcus,
an irrepressibly outspoken English
teacher and wordsmith who, on the verge
of being ousted from the school for alco-
holic disorderliness, does something
repulsively unethical to save his job. It’s a
bombshell on the order of discovering Mr.
Chips has copied his graduate thesis.
Owen is spectacular in maneuvering Jack’s
way out of this mess, in which his grown-
up son is involved. It’s a tribute to his
inner appeal that he overcomes the cruelty
of having to wear a grubby beard, heavy
glasses and abominable corduroy jackets.
One can sympathize with Jack’s bore-
dom with the faculty who won’t play word
games with him, exception made for the
wry old Walt (Bruce Davison). But with the
spotlight focused on Jack and Dina, there
seems to be little interest in developing
peripheral characters, and students and
teachers alike are hastily sketched, easily
predictable figures.
On the plus side, Gerald Di Pego’s
screenplay revolves around some truly
witty, sassy dialogue that will give the
film its raison d’etre for many collegiate
viewers. The darts fly from the moment
Jack and Dina are introduced. Told that
Dina is an art teacher and noting her artis-
tically wrapped neck scarf, Jack shoots off
“Hence the scarf,” to which Dina, noting
he’s an English teacher, replies without
batting an eye, “Hence the hence.” Their
caustic banter is always a delight.
Schepisi, whose last film was his adap-
tation “The Eye of the Storm,” based on an
Australian classic, is a general who mar-
shals actors to bring emotional depth to
almost any kind of screenplay. Here the
human elements take the foreground, and
romance comes trailing along forlornly
behind. Not that the chemistry isn’t there
between Owen and Binoche, who has
rarely looked so beautiful onscreen, even
playing a woman with physical disabili-
ties. But the strange reticence of the scene
when the two finally hit the hay feels like
a throwback to the 1930s, including a
huge cutaway that ends with the protags in
bed with the sheets pulled up to their
necks, saying how great it all was.
“Words and Pictures,” a Roadside
Attractions release, is rated PG-13 by the
Motion Picture Association of America for
“sexual material including nude sketches,
language and some mature thematic materi-
al.” Running time: 111 minutes.

closet-organizing service with her gal pal
(Wendi McLendon-Covey). They first meet
on a disastrous blind date. But, of course,
they keep running into each other again.
Like at the drugstore, where Jim is buy-
ing sanitary products for his teen daughter
(much hilarity ensues, including from the
cashier, who dishes about her own repro-
ductive system, as cashiers so often do
when you’re checking out) and Lauren is
trying to replace a centerfold she’s ripped
up from her son’s girlie magazine.
The coincidences keep happening, and
so, eventually, and don’t ask how — direc-
tor Frank Coraci and screenwriters Ivan
Menchell and Clare Sera don’t lose sleep
over plausibility — Jim and Lauren are
both in South Africa, not only in the same
resort, but the same suite! They’re appalled
to discover each other there, but of course,
there’s much to be learned over the ensuing
days, about parenting, friendship,
romance, family and wildlife.
In case we didn’t absorb those lessons,
we’re reminded of them by our singing —
and bumping, and grinding — musical nar-
rator, Terry Crews. There’s also a not-very-
funny side-plot involving a leering hus-
band (Kevin Nealon) and a bride who
expresses excitement by shaking her
boobs (tee hee again). Not surprisingly,
there is little attempt to depict real
Africans.
The most promising scenes involve the
children, especially Jim’s daughters and
their attempts to replace their late mother’s
presence (although these can veer toward
the maudlin). There’s a little blonde mop-
pet called Lou, a middle daughter named
Espn, after the network (OK, that’s funny)
and a tomboy teen named Larry, for Hilary
(Jim clearly wants sons). We’re supposed
to believe everyone thinks she’s a boy,
but, really? She’s played by glamorous
Bella Thorne, disguised only by an unat-
tractive haircut, but otherwise looking a
lot like Keira Knightley.
Still, when Lauren, who’s as happy to
have daughters around as Jim is to have
sons, gives Larry/Hilary a makeover at the
salon, the scene unexpectedly warms the
heart. And it reminds us that there’s a fairly
decent movie trying to breathe here, under-
neath the infantile humor. Maybe one day,
Sandler will liberate that movie.

BLENDED
Papapietro, junior outfielder/starter for the
Junipero Serra High School varsity base-
ball team, thinks it depends heavily on
what team drafts you and during what
round.
“You have to really want to play for the
team you get drafted by because that
becomes your life, so you shouldn’t settle
for just any team,” Papapietro said.
During what round you get drafted in is
important too.
“If you get drafted late, you don’t receive
much money, but if you get drafted during
the top two or three rounds, the amount of
money you receive makes it worth consid-
ering skipping college and going straight
to the pros,” Papapietro said.
If you love the game, you should do
everything you can to play it and keep it
an important part of your life. The stats
aren’t good for anyone making it to the
pros, and economics for anyone but a
first-round pick probably don’t look too
good either but, after all, this is about
chasing your dreams. Somebody with the
right talent and dedication to the sport
always beats the slim odds.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
As Indiana Jones once said: “Nazis.
I hate those guys.”
From classic World War II shooters
like the original “Call of Duty” and
“Medal of Honor” to this year’s farci-
cal “South Park: The Stick of Truth,”
Nazis have made dependable video-
game villains. The trend dates back
to 1981’s “Castle Wolfenstein,” an
Apple II stealth game that invited
you to infiltrate and then escape from
a German stronghold.
The series eventually morphed into
“Wolfenstein 3D,” a 1992 first-per-
son shooter that introduced all-
American hero William “B.J.”
Blazkowicz. He returns in
“Wolfenstein: The New Order”
(Bethesda Softworks, for the
PlayStation 4, Xbox One,
PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC,
$59.99).
“The New Order” begins with an
assault on the headquarters of Nazi
Gen. Wilhelm “Deathshead” Strasse.
The mission is a disaster, however,
and a comatose Blazkowicz ends up in
a Polish asylum. Flash-forward to
1960, and the Nazis have taken over
most of the planet and even a small
chunk of the moon.
It’s a bleak world that Blazkowicz
wakes up to, filled with concentra-
tion camps and towering brutalist
buildings where Deathshead and his
countrymen conduct their experi-
ments and build ever more powerful
weapons. But a small band of resist-
ance fighters is hiding deep in the
sewers of Berlin, and they’re ready to
hit the Nazis where it hurts.
Blazkowicz’s odyssey takes him
across a well-realized variety of futur-
istic monstrosities. He sabotages a
massive robot patrolling the streets
of occupied London. He rescues a
Jewish scientist from a bleak labor
camp. Eventually he stows away on a
German rocket and unleashes havoc
on the moon base.
His tools are the usual assortment
of pistols, machine guns and sniper
rifles that show up in any first-per-
son shooter, though a few more sci-fi
weapons, like a wire cutter that
morphs into a laser rifle, appear as
the game progresses. There are a few
scenarios that call for a more stealthy
approach, but “The New Order” usual-
ly provides enough ammo and armor
to blast your way through the hordes
of soldiers, killer robots and vicious
mechanical dogs.
The studio behind “The New Order, ”
Sweden’s Machine Games, gives
occasional hints at something more
subtle and ambitious. The freedom
fighters are a well-drawn crew, each
with his or her own history of trauma
at the hands of the Nazis.
“The New Order” also tries to
extrapolate from the already horrific
atrocities — the mass executions, the
eugenic experiments — of Adolf
Hitler’s regime. The results can be
jarring. One minute, you’re invited to
reflect on man’s inhumanity to man;
the next, you’re expected to relish
splattering enemy brains all over
their swastika-festooned fortresses.
That doesn’t mean that sort of
thing can’t be fun, and “The New
Order” is so well-designed and expert-
ly paced that it never gets dull during
its 16-hour duration. I only wish it
was a little bit smarter. Three stars
out of four.
Alternate-history Nazis cry ‘Wolfenstein’

and vicious mechanical dogs.

DAILY JOURNAL SENIOR CORRESPONDENT
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, START
YOUR ENGINES: TAKING THE
CURVES AT THE INDIANAPOLIS
MOTOR SPEEDWAY. It’s Memorial Day
Weekend, time for the Indianapolis 500,
“The Greatest Spectacle In Racing.” The
race, held at the celebrated Indianapolis
Motor Speedway, consists of 200 laps, run
counterclockwise around the 2.5-mile cir-
cuit, for a total distance of 500 miles. The
track has four distinct turns and straight-
aways, a layout unchanged since the facil-
ity opened in 1909. The event is contested
in “Indy cars,” single-seat, open cockpit,
open-wheel, purpose-built race cars. The
Speedway is the highest-capacity sports
venue in the world; Vatican City, Churchill
Downs, Yankee Stadium, the Rose Bowl
and the Roman Coliseum combined could
fit within its 253-acre infield. The
Speedway’s permanent seating capacity is
250,000, and infield patrons raise race-
day attendance to approximately 300,000.
The Indy 500 has one of the richest cash
prize funds in sports, with the total purse
over $13 million, $2.5 million of it
going to the winner.
THE INDY RACING EXPERIENCE.
DREAMS DO COME TRUE. If you’ve
ever wondered what it’s like to be an Indy
500 race driver, don’t keep wondering:
live it. The Indy Racing Experience Two-
Seat Ride allows you to experience speeds
and g-forces previously available to only
a handful of elite drivers. A purpose-built
Dallara chassis is used, which places a
passenger behind the professional driver;
this is a true IndyCar Series vehicle that
can reach up to 180 miles per hour. Driver
Anthony “A.J.” Foyt IV, scion of the
famed racing family, said: “To have the
opportunity to give folks the chance to
experience what it is we drivers feel in the
cockpit of an IndyCar on a race day is an
incredible thrill. There is no other experi-
ence that allows guests to feel that speed
and g-force that I experience racing. I’m
always happy to be a part of the Indy
Racing Experience. I would encourage any
IndyCar fan to give the program a try.” So
get into a racing suit, slide into one of
these low-slung, high horsepower
mechanical works of art known as an
IndyCar, and prepare for the ride of your
life. (Celebrate the finish with a drink of
milk — as Indy 500 winners do.) The Indy
Racing Experience takes place at the
Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Wal t
Disney World Speedway and North
American tracks where the IndyCar Series

SPEEDWAY HALL OF FAME MUSE-
UM. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway
Hall of Fame Museum, on the Speedway
grounds, houses approximately 75 vehi-
cles, including The Marmon “Wasp, ”
which Ray Harroun drove to win the inau-
gural Indianapolis 500 in 1911 and which
was featured on a U.S. postage stamp. The
museum displays the famed Borg-Warner
Trophy, which honors the winner of each
Indianapolis 500.
OH, AND DID YOU KNOW? The
nickname of the Indianapolis Motor
Speedway is The Brickyard. In 1909, the
Speedway’s surface consisted of 3.2 mil-
lion bricks. The original bricks are cov-
ered by layers of pavement, but a 3-foot-
wide strip of the bricks still marks the
start-finish line.
TURN ON YOUR TELEVISION AND
WATCH THE TRADITIONS. The 98th
Indianapolis 500 is scheduled for Sunday,
May 25. The Purdue All-American
Marching Band performs as it has since
1927; 83-year-old Jim Nabors sings
“Back Home Again in Indiana” for the
35th (and final) time; and ABC broadcasts
the event for the 50th consecutive year.
***
TAKE A SEAT AT ST. ELMO STEAK
HOUSE. After the Speedway, head to St.
Elmo Steak House, an Indianapolis land-
mark since 1902. The upscale saloon
décor spreads through a maze of rooms
whose walls are covered with photos of
famous guests, from visiting NFL and NBA
teams to rock stars. Classic menu items
include a 20 ounce bone-in ribeye, 21
ounce pork chops and a 28 ounce porter-
house steak. A wedge salad, creamed
spinach and sautéed mushrooms merit
attention. And — oh, boy — brace your-
self as you bite into the horseradish
infused sauce of the signature jumbo
shrimp cocktail. It will bring tears (of
joy) to your eyes. The multi-layered
chocolate cake is a knockout. Fans of the
popular Park and Recreation television
show will recognize St. Elmo as Ron
Swanson’s favorite restaurant where (in
“Two Parties”) he celebrated the bachelor
party he never had. 127 S. Illinois St.

throughout its history. The 1906 San Francisco earthquake
collapsed the steeple, but left most of the church undam-
aged. Many members of the church have also talked of the
Japanese-American taken into a family home here to pre-
vent their internment during World War II. Asmall window
on the side of the sanctuary is placed in their honor.
Other sections of the church went through remodeling last
year as well. Added was a beautiful memorial garden layered
with flowers along its path. Alabyrinth walkway and a wall
of remembrance provide a unique and reflective experience.
The church prides itself in its ability to be open to the
wide range of people with whom they interact.
“I want people to know that whoever you are and wherev-
er you are, you are welcome here,” said Nixon. “When I
preach, I try to talk about something that is relevant, reclu-
sive and inspires people to go out and speak justice and
equality to the world, which will help work on their own
personal transformation.”
People at CCSM have their different reasons for attending
service. For Austin Mader-Clark, the CCSM historian and
moderator, the social justice work is what drew her to
become a more permanent member.
“The things that drew me most to this church in the first
place was the amount of outreach there is,” said Mader-
Clark. “People are always making sandwiches for homeless
people. We have a group of blanketeers that make quilts and
donate them to orphans. It provides a vibrant and welcom-
ing environment.”
CCSM has also implemented an after-school homework
central that tutors at-risk kids in the community. They also
have offered a music school for children that involves
singing and musical instruments.
In addition to helping the community, CCSM emphasizes
the need for the church to stand strong in the face of adver-
sity.
“CCSM stood as a Christian voice against Prop. 8, which
was challenging because there was so much talk about the
Christian community supporting Prop. 8,” said Mader-
Clark. “We view ourselves as a different kind of Christian
than what’s usually portrayed in the media. While we pride
ourselves as being an open church, that means being open
to controversy as well.”
While there are differences among its people just like any
other large congregation, one thing is for certain. CCSM is
a happy place and will likely remain a happy place for years
to come.
“Here at CCSM, we are redefining church and recapturing
the essence of the teachings of Jesus,” said Nixon. “We’re
doing our best to change the perception of church.”

Bay Area beaches get high water quality marks
Beachgoers can take comfort in results from a report that
gave Bay Area beaches mostly high marks.
Environmental nonprofit group Heal the Bay released its
annual report on Thursday, which showed 92 percent of Bay
Area ocean beaches have outstanding water quality and low
bacterial pollution levels.
Heal the Bay analysts assigned A-to-F grades to beaches
in San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa and
Marin counties.
Out of 28 bayside beaches, 22 received Aor B grades for
the summer period, but there were pockets of pollution in
San Mateo and San Francisco counties, according to the
organization.
An Awas given to 42 of 44 oceanside beaches from Marin
to San Mateo counties.
The report analyzed weekly bacterial pollution levels at
beaches statewide for three distinct time periods during
2013-14.
“Each year, we’ve seen an improvement statewide,” said
Amanda Griesbach, a water quality scientist with Heal the
Bay.
The organization gave Marina Lagoon and Pillar Point
Harbor, beaches in San Mateo County, failing grades.
Griesbach said there are still some problem areas on
Bayside beaches.
Golden Gate Bridge median to go up in January
Golden Gate Bridge officials have set a date for the instal-
lation of a moveable median separating northbound and
southbound traffic.
Bridge District General Manager Denis Mulligan says the
bridge is scheduled to close after midnight on Saturday, Jan.
10 and reopen before 4 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 12 for the
work. Officials had originally aimed to install the median in
October, but decided on the January weekend because the
bridge traditionally experiences light traffic then.
The $30 million project has been in the works for more
than a decade. Officials say the moveable, steel and concrete
median will help prevent head-on crashes. Traffic on the
span is currently separated only by yellow plastic tubes.
The January shutdown will be the famed span’s first con-
struction-related closure. The bridge’s sidewalks will remain
open.
Local briefs
“It gives us an opportunity to com-
municate and work together on a cohe-
sive solution,” he said. “Mills High
School is a fantastic high school and
it is a school with a wonderful culture
I’ve been very much a part of for the
last four years; not just academically. I
have an objective that’s very simple
— that’s to maintain, preserve and
protect Mills High school for
Millbrae students.”
Planning for growth
Fong noted it’s important for the
district to come up with a comprehen-
sive facilities plan that takes into
account d.tech’s growth. Mills parent
David Chow, who is on the task force,
said he moved to Millbrae when his
son was 18 months old so he could go
to Mills High School.
“How we got to the co-location was
not great,” he said. “Moving forward,
we need to make things right to work
for the kids and for everyone.”
Christy Knott, the 520-student
charter’s director of health and well-
ness, said she wants to make sure both
schools are comfortable. The school
was approved in November 2013 and
will open with just a freshmen class in
August, then add on classes each sub-
sequent year. The educational model of
the school emphasizes “knowledge in
action and extreme personalization.”
“We want to come to a solution that
works for everyone,” she said. “We’re
excited to be part of helping to take
the lead on being good neighbors to
Mills High School.”
Board members were pleased with
the formation of the task force as well.
“I was very, very worried about this
situation,” said board President Linda
Lees Dwyer. “I actually slept that
Monday night (the night of the task
force meeting). The process was
imperfect at best. … It was a really
good meeting. Everyone participated
and we’re working on solutions. We
need to make things work for every-
one.”
Communication
Parents did raise concerns about the
lack of public discussion allowed for
the decision to co-locate at Mills,
including Stacie Hershman, a parent
and task force member. The fact that
there was little information in the
board minutes pertaining to the deci-
sion to co-locate the charter with
Mills raised concerns for Hershman.
There were 20 sets of minutes missing
from the district’s website that were up
for approval at the Thursday night
meeting, but they were ultimately
pulled from the agenda because some
needed to be reviewed further, Lees
Dwyer said.
“There are questions that aren’t in
minutes that are really important,”
Hershman said. “What I know is that
in times of change, transparency,
communication and honesty become
more important than ever. Monday
night’s meeting was a start, but we
need to have in the record an accurate
report of what did happen. There’s no
report on the decision for Mills; was
there such a report? … Surprisingly, I
found absolutely no reflection about
discussion of Mills as a site. … Was
there board action that authorized the
offer of the Mills facility?”
Trustee Peter Hanley noted the deci-
sion was approved on the recommen-
dation of staff.
Push for Foster City location
Meanwhile, some parents in the
school district believe the school
would be a good fit for Foster City,
which doesn’t have a high school.
“It’s the only city that has no high
school,” said Peggy Toye of Foster
City. “Schools are a public service, so
I don’t think they can be measured like
a business. It (the co-location) can be
done. I would love the opportunity to
choose between two high schools
[like Millbrae does].”
Another Foster City resident said
his dream would be to have a high
school in Foster City and that this
charter could be a good fit .
Still, trustees like Hanley said it’s
an uphill battle trying to put a school
in Foster City, as he was blocked at
every point.
“Good luck on Foster City,” Hanley
said. “I spent from 2002 to 2008 try-
ing to bring a high school to Foster
City and at one point I had a charter
approved, but all we needed was a
facility in Foster City. … I think it
would be great, but I have six years of
battle scars from trying to make it
happen.”
Hanley noted that there should be
more schools from which parents can
choose.
“I’m very pleased we’re going to
work things out for this year,” he said.
“We have to be able to adapt to new
schools coming into the system.”
Conversely, Lees Dwyer believes
Foster City has changed.
“If anyone can work to put another
school in Foster City, it’s the par-
ents,” she said. “If you (Foster City
residents) want to put d.tech in the
city, form your group and work on it.”
Overall, there are more students
coming into the southern end of the
school district than the district has
capacity for, said board Vice President
Marc Friedman. Schools, like Mills,
will have to get used to changes like
school co-location, he said.
“We have tried very hard the last few
years to find property and locate
schools in the southern end where we
know we have more students than we
have school space,” he said. “We’ve
been unsuccessful I guess — it’s no
secret. We’re going to have to find
ways for students in our southern end
of the district to attend schools in that
northern end of the district. That’s
going to mean all sorts of change —
everyone needs to grasp we’re going
to have changes.”
Education is going to change dra-
matically, said Trustee Stephen
Rogers.
“Co-location will look insignifi-
cant in the next 10 years,” he said.
“Can’t we just agree to give it (co-
location) a chance? It might actually
make things better. ”
The next task force meeting date has
yet to be set.

a political action committee and lobby-
ing coalition formed to create a political
voice for Asian-Americans regarding
political issues and candidates. Its pres-
ident, Chow, 50, decided to start the
group in 2011 after opposing a ban on
the possession or sale of shark fins in
California.
“It’s an unconstitutional discrimina-
tion bill,” said Chow, originally from
Hong Kong. “This is one reason we
organized the group.”
The group’s cause came front and cen-
ter during the introduction of Senate
Constitutional Amendment 5. This ini-
tiative would ask voters to consider
eliminating California Proposition
209’s ban on the use race, sex, color,
ethnicity or national origin in recruit-
ment, admissions and retention pro-
grams at California’s public universities
and colleges.
“We opposed it because we believe
affirmative action has done its job,” he
said. “There’s no necessity to have a
quota system. We will keep educating
the community. ... Although Asian-
Americans only occupy about 14 per-
cent of the total population in
California, Asian students are 35 per-
cent of the UC (University of
California) system.”
Chow believes state Sen. Edward
Hernandez, D-West Covina, introduced
the bill because he wanted to use the
quota to reduce Asian students in the uni-
versity system even though the amend-
ment’s language specified it was aimed
at aiding Latino students.
Chow, a father of two teenagers,
moved to the United States in 1984 to
study physics at Cal State Stanislaus.
After graduation, he began working in
Oakland and then helped organize the
Oriental Food Association to organize
importers to work with the Food and
Drug Administration and Department of
Agriculture.
Chow notes that traditionally
Chinese-Americans have not been inter-
ested in politics, but he wants to change
that. The 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act
isolated Chinese immigrants from other
immigrants and it wasn’t repealed until
1946. Large-scale Chinese immigration
didn’t occur until the passage of the
Immigration and Nationality Act of
1965.
“For 130 years, the Chinese have
been excluded from having a political
voice,” he said. “There’s been no politi-
cal voice for Chinese people and that’s
why there’s only two Chinese congress-
men. Unfortunately, our voice is still so
small compared to other ethnic groups.”
The group is helping though, Chow
said.
“Today we are the watchdog for any
policy and law,” he said. “If there’s any-
thing that discriminates against Asian-
Americans, we want to educate the peo-
ple to protect their rights. We believe
everyone should be equal.”
Uniting people is something Chow
really enjoys about his organization, he
said.
“We’re learning how to see if there’s
discrimination against Asian-
Americans,” he said. “Right now they
(Asian-Americans) know better how to
protect their rights through the organi-
zation. We see the people running for
office; this is good progress. People are
starting to come to us and get their voic-
es heard.”
The group also works to raise funds
for causes it lobbies.

state of qualifications and proposal.
RD Olson beat out five other busi-
nesses that submitted proposals — and
two other front-runners — in large part
because it did not ask the city to subsi-
dize the project and proposed a four-
story hotel rather than five. The smaller
height is more compatible with the sur-
rounding area, said Community
Development Director Al Savay.
“One of the key factors the city is
looking for is the quality of the devel-
opment and the architecture. It is a gate-
way site to the community and we want
to be really clear and in agreement that
this will be a high-quality project,”
Savay said.
City staff also pointed out that the
multi-million dollar subsidies requested
by bidders Huntington Hotel Group and
OTO Development would keep the city
waiting roughly two decades to see any
substantial difference in its transient
occupancy tax revenue.
Savay said an extended-stay hotel
like a Residence Inn is a good fit for the
San Carlos market because it appeals to
business and family travelers. With the
Palo Alto Medical Foundation poised to
open its new medical campus, Savay
said the hotel may also be good for
those visiting patients or needing to
stay in the vicinity. The hotel could
mean more than $1 million in new tran-
sient occupancy taxes yearly for the
city, according to Savay.
The city might also find financial
benefit in its development agreement
with Olson but Savay said that’s too far
in the future at this point to estimate.
The council’s approval of the RD
Olson recommendation lets City
Manager Jeff Maltbie negotiate a mem-
orandum of understanding and begin
working on design. A disposition and
development agreement could be con-
sidered by the council by mid-2015 for
the land sale to RD Olson and, once
done, Savay said groundbreaking could
be soon after with a tentative opening
in early summer 2016.
The choice of a developer moves the
city that much closer to realizing its
goal of a hotel on the 3.91-acre plan
composed of 595 Industrial Road, 850
E. San Carlos Ave. and 810 E. San
Carlos Ave. The city closed escrow on
the San Carlos Avenue parcel in March
and is currently in the midst of escrow
on the other two with a finance plan due
to the council by June.
The council approved the land pur-
chases last fall as a “calculated risk”
that the market and developers would be
receptive.
In advance of the purchase, the city
rezoned the industrial area into a new
landmark commercial district to pro-
mote uses with an economic benefit ,
like a hotel. All other uses require con-
ditional use permits.
The City Council meets 7 p.m.
Tuesday, May 27 at City Hall, 600 Elm
St., San Carlos.

HOTEL
That location has about 400-500 vet-
erans buried among civilians. The boys
actually have to go to each grave read if
it’s a veteran’s before placing a flag.
Boys look to see if the grave is marked,
inscribed or known to be a military per-
son including Coast Guard, Merchant
Marines or government support units.
“They have to connect the name and
time period with the stone head, here
(unlike Golden Gate) you actually read
and look if it’s a person who actually
served the country,” he said. “We pro-
vide a remembrance and honor veterans
who are in that cemetery. It’s important
for the boys to see where men and
women have given the ultimate service
to the country.”
Troop 27 will be placing the flags
honoring veterans at Skylawn
Memorial Park in San Mateo 8 a.m.-
11:30 a.m. Saturday, May 24. The flags
will remain standing beyond Memorial
Day. Troop 27 is one of the oldest Boy
Scout Troops in San Mateo. It was char-
tered in 1951.
