WASHINGTON For the rst
time since 1999, American
employers have added more than
200,000 jobs a month for four
straight months, offering more
evidence that the U.S. economy is
steadily growing while much of
Europe and Asia struggle.
Last months gain of 217,000
jobs means the economy has nal-
ly recovered all the jobs lost to the
Great Recession. And it coincides
with indications that American
consumers have grown more con-
dent. Auto sales have surged.
Manufacturers and service compa-
nies are expanding.
I dont think we have a boom,
but we have a good economy grow-

Still, Fridays
report from the
Labor Department
showed that pay remains subpar
for many workers, millions who
want full-time work are still stuck
in part-time jobs and the number
of people out of work for more
than six months remains histori-
cally high.
Monthly job growth has aver-
aged 234,000 for the past three
months, up sharply from 150,000
in the previous three. The unem-
ployment rate, which is derived
from a separate survey, matched
Aprils 6.3 percent, the lowest in

When Nancy Sivy walked across
the stage May 3 for Notre Dame de
Namur Universitys undergraduate
commencement ceremony, she
was not your average graduate.
Sivy, a San Bruno resident, is 75
and after years of working decided
she wanted to go back to school to
obtain her bachelors degree in
human services at the Belmont
school, focusing on administra-
tion and counseling. She took
classes in the evening as part of
the professional studies program.
Ive always loved school, said
Sivy, who may go into a masters
program or volunteer for nonprof-
its. I would especially like to
work with kids who think they
cant go on to higher education. I
want them to think yes, I can.
Her decision to go back to
school didnt surprise her family,
but her friends were another story.
This came after Sivy, who is a
widow with no children, retired at
the age of 69.
They said, why? What are you
going to do with it? she recount-
ed. I said, Im doing it for
myself. Its going to open up
doors and opportunities.
Previously, she had worked as a
customer service manager for a

After 34 years in San Mateo County
schools, Rosanna Myres is saying ciao
to teaching.
Myres, who emigrated from Italy to San
Francisco at the age of 8, has been teach-
ing kindergarten at Cipriani Elementary
School in Belmont for the past 18 years
and also taught at Lomita Park School and
Sharp Park School. Awarded the Lois
Guthrie Award for Exemplary Education in
San Mateo County and Educator of the
Year for the Belmont-Redwood Shores
Elementary School District, Myres has
interacted with the more 700 students.
Its very, very difficult to leave teach-
ing, she said. But I will be connected to
teaching children through volunteer work.
I have a brand-new baby granddaughter
and Im just being pulled. I love her to
death and want to be part of her life.
Myres, 64, received her bachelors
degree in psychology from San Francisco
State University before getting her teach-
ing credential there as well.
I really can relate to the children who
are non-English speaking, she said. I
know what theyre going through; thats
been another benefit of being a teacher.
A few of her lessons included teaching
about heart health using real sheep hearts,
showing students statistics about how
many young people have heart disease
because of what they eat.
I wanted them to really get a grasp about
what this is about, she said. It really does
make a difference in what
you put in your body; its
a big hit.
She also would trans-
form the playhouse area
into pet hospitals, gro-
cery stores and Chinese
restaurants throughout
the year to teach vocabu-
lary, money manage-
ment, counting, using
chopsticks, making reservations, learning
their phone numbers and other skills.
Through these game activities, I get
them to do lots and lots of reading and writ-
ing, she said.
Myres has lived in Burlingame with her
husband Jess Myres and their two children
for 30 years.
Parents say that Myres will be missed.
Parent Marit Hsich recounted how on the
first day of school one year she was sched-
uled for a C-section for her third child and
was nervous about her first who was enter-
ing kindergarten at the same time.
I didnt know Rosanna, but I began to
cry, as my mom had recently passed away
and the emotions of such big events with-
out her weighed so heavily upon me that
day, she wrote in an email. Dear Mrs.
Myres knew just what to do to calm both
me and my daughter. Being a student in
Mrs. Myres classroom is like Christmas
every day. Tears as I write, as just know-
ing Rosanna is among the walls of school
makes me, as a crazed mother of three busy
children, feel calmed and safe.
Other parents shared their appreciation
for Myres as well.
Our daughter started her education with a
kind and beautiful teacher our family will
remember for the rest of our lives, wrote
Scott and Julie Barton in an email. She
brought magic to her classroom through
her passion for her kids, love of teaching
and creativity. She taught children to love
learning and made her students and their
parents better people.
Another parent, Annette Robinson, had
three children in Myres class.
I had the opportunity to work in her
class many, many times and the ease in
which she calms a crying child or soothes
an incident between two children all with-
out a raise in her voice and with a smile on
her face (I always refer to her as the child
whisperer) is amazing, Robinson wrote
in an email. Within the first few weeks of
school, she knows each student and their
individual personalities and needs and by
the end of the year, she sends them off to
first-grade but never without a tear and a
smile. Rosanna has started all of her stu-
dents education with the best foundation
they could ever have and for that and all her
love to my kids, I will be forever thank-
June 25 will be Myres last day of
school. Once done with school aside
from spending time with her new grand-
daughter Myres plans to travel and
spend time with friends.

Cockfighting defendant takes plea deal
A 56-year-old man reportedly found with 20 chickens
modified for cockfighting behind a Broadmoor grocery
store pleaded no contest to one count of felony animal

chickens of which 12 were roosters. The game cocks had

home, Menlo Park police reported find-
ing a stolen Menlo Park police officer

SEATTLE The man blasting away
with a shotgun paused to reload, and
Jon Meis saw his chance.
The 22-year-old building monitor
pepper-sprayed and tackled the gun-
man Thursday in Seattle Pacific
Universitys Otto Miller Hall, likely
preventing further carnage, according
to police and university ofcials.
Meis and other students subdued the
gunman until ofcers arrived and hand-
cuffed him moments later.
Police said the shooter, who killed a
19-year-old man and wounded two
other young people, had 50 additional
shotgun shells and a hunting knife.
He told authorities after his arrest
that he wanted to kill as many people
as possible before taking his own life,
Seattle police wrote in a statement
led in court Friday.
Friends credited Meis with saving

that my roommate, Jon Meis, showed

health problems for which he had been
treated and medicated, said his attor-

him he was smart and could be college-
Prosecutors sought six years in
prison for Cristian Joshua Estrada, 18,
but Judge Jonathan Karesh opted for a
year in jail which is immediately mod-
iable to the Jericho Drug Treatment

in custody on $250,000.
Karesh also placed Estrada on ve

Estrada pleaded no contest in
February to felony home invasion rob-
bery for his role in the July 3, 2013,
incident. That afternoon, Estrada
allegedly left the Lanyard Drive home
with the daughter so Ceballos and
another male suspect could break in

Ceballos allegedly had a machete and
the other a handgun when they encoun-

After removing her jewelry and tak-
ing a jewelry box from another room,
the teens took the crying woman to the

When her nerves prevented her from
doing so, the pair left and, a few min-

Woman assaulted on
Third Avenue overpass
San Mateo police are on the lookout for a
man who grabbed a 24-year-old woman in a
bear hug on the East Third
Avenue/Highway 101 overpass Thursday
At approximately 11:40 p.m., the woman
was walking east on the pedestrian walkway
when she noticed a man following her, who
then grabbed her around the torso. She broke
free and ran home where she called the police.
She was not injured, according to police.
The man was described as Hispanic,
approximately 30-40 years old, about 5 feet
2 inches, and 140 pounds. He was last seen
wearing a gray sweatshirt and black jeans.

Nearly a million
ballots remain
uncounted in state
By Juliet Williams
SACRAMENTO Nearly a million bal-
lots cast in Tuesdays primary election have
not been counted yet, Secretary of State
Debra Bowen reported Friday.
Elections ofcials in all 58 counties pro-
vided estimates to the state as they wade
through ballots dropped off at polls and
provisional votes cast on Election Day.
There were 991,699 Friday morning, but the
number fell to 926,069 later Friday as more
votes were counted.
Several high-prole races were still too
close to call, including who nished second
for controller, where only 6,542 votes sep-
arate Republican accountant David Evans
and two Democrats, former Speaker John
Perez and Board of Equalization member
Betty Yee.
The registrars have so far counted nearly
3.4 million ballots cast Tuesday, which puts
turnout at 19.2 percent. With the outstand-
ing ballots, turnout could approach 25 per-
cent, which would be a record low for a reg-
ular election in California but better than
some forecasts.
The previous low for a nonpresidential
primary was 33.1 percent in June 2010.
Turnout was 28.2 percent in June 2008, an
anomaly when the state split the presiden-
tial and primary elections.
Many of the uncounted votes are from per-
manent absentee voters who received their
ballots in the mail but do not return them by
mail. More of those voters appear to be get-
ting their ballots early but dont turn them
in at a polling place until Election Day,
which delays the vote count, said Paul
Mitchell, vice president of Political Data

Weekend June 7-8, 2014 THEDAILYJOURNAL
By Paul Larson
recently read an
article in the trade
journal American
Funeral Director
about the famous
quote by the late
Sir William Ewart
Gladstone, the celebrated English four term
Prime Minister who was known for his
colorful oratories and speeches on the floor
of Parliament. This 19
century statesman
was renowned for many unique sayings, but
he is most noted among Funeral Directors
for saying this: Show me the manner in
which a nation cares for its dead, and I will
measure with mathematical exactness the
tender mercies of its people, their respect for
the laws of the land and their loyalty to high
ideals. This quote is very lyrical and well
thought out. It has become a long time
custom for many Funeral Homes to display
this quote on a plaque for all to see. The
meaning is obvious and is a direct
comparison between caring for our fallen
loved ones and the way we care for
ourselves, our community and our society.
To many observers it may appear that
weve lost the motivation to care for our
loved ones in a proper way, and that our
society has become misguided. Taking into
consideration the way our government
leaders sometimes act, without the maturity
to function unselfishly, is disturbing, and the
reasons they got elected can be alarming.
Also, in the eyes of logical people violence
should be against our nature, but seemingly
is embedded in our way of life. It is topsy-
turvy for a culture to view cruelty and tribal
brutality as a form of normality, and for love
to be viewed as an obscenity.
Yes, some say our society is falling apart,
but looking at the overall big picture I see
most people yearning to live a peaceful and
courteous life with those around them. Most
people are not violent. Most people want to
be accepted. Most people want to be happy.
Remember that hate is taught.
Wouldnt it make more sense for love to
be taught? Teaching youngsters to be
curious and to enjoy the differences of
those around them would be a good start.
They say that its hard to teach old dogs new
tricks. But old dogs will not be here forever,
and with effort every young dog could be
cultivated with ideals for supporting others
with respect. Putting this into practice may
seem daunting, but its not impossible and
over time could be valuable for our future.
Humanity has always been burdened with
a good percentage of bad guys. But, all in
all, the ideals that the majority of us value
and strive to promote, life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness, are shared in our core.
Going back to Gladstones quote, I see
the vast majority of the families we serve at
deeply committed to doing the right thing
for their loved ones. They come to us with a
desire for closure and to enact final tributes
for those theyve cherished. Whether public
or private their feelings are similar, and
showing one last bit of proper care is their
goal. For me this is a sign of hope, showing
that overall we are a society of good people
with a nature to live in harmony and peace.

State Supreme Court
rules on red light cameras
SACRAMENTO The California Supreme
Court has ruled against a Southern California
woman who challenged a trafc ticket based
on red-light camera photos and video.
In a unanimous ruling on Thursday, the
court said the red-light camera evidence
against Carmen Goldsmith was adequately
authenticated and there was no need to adopt
stricter evidence rules for red-light camera
Goldsmith was accused of running a red
light in Inglewood in 2009 and ned $436.
Apolice ofcer testied at her court hearing.
Goldsmiths lawyer had called for testimo-
ny from the cameras manufacturer. But the
Supreme Court said the ofcers testimony
was sufcient.
John Jackman, a lawyer for Goldsmith,
told said he was disappointed by the ruling
but happy the court had set some ground
rules for red light cameras.
Poll: 9 in 10 Californians
alarmed by drought
LOS ANGELES Nearly 9 in 10
California voters are alarmed by the drought
plaguing the state, but few say the rainfall
shortage has had a major impact on them,
according to a recent poll.
The University of Southern California
Dornsife-Los Angeles Times poll conducted
in late May found 89 percent of voters view
the drought as a crisis or major problem
but only 16 percent said it personally affect-
ed them.
To address water supply problems, most
favored conservation efforts but balked at
spending tax dollars.
Kern County sues over
state high-speed rail plans
SACRAMENTO Kern County ofcials
led a lawsuit Friday over the states $68 bil-
lion high-speed-rail project, alleging de-
ciencies in the environmental review of the
route from Fresno to Bakerseld, a day after
Kings County and a group of residents there
made similar claims in a separate lawsuit.
The latest suit, led in Sacramento County
Superior Court, alleges the states 20,000-
page environmental review does not comply
with the California Environmental Quality
Act because it is not thorough enough and
fails to account for things such as relocating
existing electrical infrastructure, locating
construction staging areas, and public
access to parkways in Bakerseld.

SAN ANTONIO Investigators said they
are examining allegations that supervisors
in the veterans health system retaliated
against 37 employees who complained
about practices such as falsied records used
to cover up months-long delays in schedul-
ing appointments. The acting VAchief said
such reprisals would not be tolerated.
I think that is wrong. It is absolutely
unacceptable, Acting Veterans Affairs
Secretary Sloan Gibson said Friday.
There have been questions raised about
intimidation or even retaliation. There is a
law that forbids that, and well follow the
law, Gibson said at a news conference
Friday following a visit to a San Antonio VA
His comments came after the Ofce of
Special Counsel said it was looking into
possible retaliation against 37 employees
of the VA who led so-
called whistleblower
complaints. The ofce is
an independent watchdog
separate from the VA
which looks into whistle-
blower complaints from
across the federal govern-
But one of the 37 who
complained of reprisals,
Brian Turner, said he is not reassured by
Gibsons vow to discipline those who retal-
iated. Turner, who works at North Central
Federal Clinic in San Antonio, said he was
intimidated by his supervisors for com-
plaining that scheduling clerks in Austin,
San Antonio and Waco were regularly told to
enter false information to make it appear
that wait times for appointments were far
shorter than they really were.
VA acting chief Sloan Gibson:
retaliation will not be tolerated
WASHINGTON Fears the Tal i ban
might kill Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl if word
leaked that he was being exchanged for
five Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detainees
drove the Obama administration not to
notify Congress in advance about the
deal, according to congressional and
administration officials.
There was no overt threat but rather an
assessment based on intelligence reports
that Bergdahls life would be in jeopardy
if news of the exchange got out and the
deal failed, two senior
U.S. officials familiar
with efforts to free the
soldier said Thursday.
They spoke only on
condition of anonymity
because they were not
authorized to comment
by name.
A federal law requires
Congress to be told 30
days before a prisoner is released from the

Valeria Dorothy Williams
Valeria Dorothy Williams died peacefully at home May
30, 2014.
Born in Minnesota Jan. 21, 1916, she called San Carlos
home for the last 57 years.
Valeria was in the Red Cross during World War II with
Pattons Army traveling across North Africa and up
through Italy. This was the beginning of her love of trav-
el. She spent the rest of her life seeing the world.
She was a backpacker, hiker and camper well into her
80s. Due to her love of the outdoors, Valeria was quite
knowledgeable about birds and plants. The endless possi-
bilities in life made her happy.
She is survived by four children, two grandchildren, one
great-grandchild, her sister and many nieces and nephews.
Amass is being said for Valeria at St. Charles Church in
San Carlos 8:30 a.m. June 20.
People walk in the sea as British landing craft are seen behind on the 70th anniversary of the
D-Day landings at Gold Beach at Arromanches-les-Bains on the Normandy coast in France.
a day of pride, remembrance and honors for
those who waded through blood-tinged
waves, climbed razor-sharp cliffs or fell from

It was also a day of high diplomacy for a
Europe not completely at peace.

planning and derring-do.
The events spread across the beaches and
lush farmlands of Normandy, in western
France, had an added sense of urgency this
year: It would be the last grand commemora-

relived the anniversary at home in silence or

Letters to the editor
By Alexander Hyres
n the article, District explores
tweaking magnet policy: San
Mateo-Foster City elementary
ofcials think some magnets are sim-
ply theme schools in the June 2 San
Mateo Daily Journal, Dr. Cynthia
Simms, superintendent of the San
Mateo-Foster City Elementary School
District, claimed that the Bayside
STEM Academy was not meeting the
learning needs of specic students as
mandated within the No Child Left
Behind law.
According to Dr. Simms, some stu-
dents within ethnic, linguistic and
socioeconomic subgroups are not
having their learning needs met due to
a lack of focus with Baysides instruc-
tional programs. She continued by
saying that until there are some
changes academically, Bayside wont
be attracting other (students) from
outside the neighborhood. While Dr.
Simms did acknowledge that the staff
and teachers at Bayside STEM
Academy have good intentions, the
rest of her claims about the school
some of which lack hard evidence
are misleading and offensive.
Dr. Simms says that changes are
necessary to Baysides instructional
programs to meet the needs of all stu-
dents. It is true that there are sub-
groups of Bayside students that strug-
gle to perform well on the standard-
ized tests mandated by NCLB.
However, it is also true that Baysides
Academic Performance Index (API)
a composite score, calculated by the
state, of student achievement that
draws heavily on standardized test
scores improved by 25 points dur-
ing the 2012-13 school year. Over
the same period, other schools within
the San Mateo-Foster City
Elementary School District averaged a
two-point gain, while the state aver-
age was a one point loss in the API.
Despite those gains in the schools
API, not one of the Bayside teachers
would say they are completely satis-
ed with the instructional programs at
the school. Though the school admin-
istration and teach-
ers do have a say in
the direction and
focus of the instruc-
tional programs, it
is not as if the dis-
trict ofce lacks the
power to help
select and support
instructional pro-
grams to meet students needs. Any
perceived lack of focus in Baysides
instructional program needs to
include a constructive conversation
about how the district ofce, led by
Dr. Simms, is positively or negative-
ly affecting the schools instructional
Dr. Simms assertion that part of
the schools mission is to attract
other students from outside the neigh-
borhood runs counter to the mission
of public schools in the United States
and is demeaning to the neighbor-
hood families of Bayside. The
Bayside STEM Academy is a Title I
public middle school with a student
population composed of the surround-
ing neighborhood and the districts
Gifted and Talented (GATE) program.
While some of the students in the
GATE program live outside the
schools neighborhood boundary,
Baysides primary mission is to serve
the public needs for education
specically the students living within
the schools geographic boundary. A
public school in the United States has
the responsibility to ready students
for their future roles as productive
workers and democratic citizens. By
saying that the school needs to attract
students from outside the neighbor-
hood to meet that responsibility, Dr.
Simms is implying that there is
something decient or wrong with the
families that call Bayside their neigh-
borhood school. While Dr. Simms
comments may be merely the start of
a conversation about the role of
themed and magnet schools within
the district, there should have more
foresight into the possible the impli-
cations of those comments. The
aforementioned implication is irrev-
erent and warrants further explanation
from Dr. Simms.
That implication is irreverent and
warrants further explanation from Dr.
Even if Dr. Simms does believe that
part of a public schools mission is to
attract families from outside the
neighborhood, her claim that
Baysides academics are not attracting
students to the school is question-
able. Next year, the school will add
over 60 incoming sixth-graders in the
GATE cohort some from outside the
neighborhood more than Bayside
has ever had during Dr. Simms tenure
as superintendent. Moreover, if Dr.
Simms believes that part of Baysides
mission is to attract students from
outside the neighborhood, then mak-
ing misleading and disparaging
claims about the school in a public
forum makes that endeavor evermore
difcult. Though there may be a
philosophical difference between Dr.
Simms and the teachers about the
ability for one to choose his or her
public school, it is important to set
the record straight about whether
Bayside is attracting students from
outside the neighborhood. Without
citing hard evidence, Dr. Simms
claim is conjecture.
Instead of continuing this conver-
sation in a public space, the teachers
and staff of Bayside STEM Academy
seek a personal forum with Dr.
Cynthia Simms and district board
members to discuss her previous com-
ments and concerns about the school.

Not the whole truth There was an election?
ell that was fun, wasnt it? Now that the pri-
mary election is over, we can look back with
fondness at the commotion, the excitement and
the determination to exercise a fundamental freedom by
voting for candidates of our choice. You did vote, didnt
Unfortunately, more than 80 percent of our county resi-
dents didnt vote. As readers of this column, you probably
voted but your friends and neighbors certainly didnt. That
apathy was evident on election night when I stopped in at
the Lariat Sports Bar to have a Coke and monitor returns,
and one patron said in surprise, There was an election?
Why yes, there was.
Did he miss anything? After
all, it was a rst round election
and, with most ballot initiatives
now appearing in November,
there wasnt much of a reason to
vote, right? Wrong.
If he lived in supervisorial dis-
tricts two or three, he missed the
chance to vote for county super-
visor. Neighbors who voted
chose the supervisor for him.
All of 9,893 of them put Carole
Groom back in ofce in District
Two, while 14,805 voted to re-
elect Don Horsely in District Three. He and the others who
didnt vote wont have another chance in November, this
was it.
Since the Board of Supervisors controls zoning deci-
sions in large parts of the county, spends almost $2 bil-
lion (with a b!) annually, and is responsible in part for a
9 percent sales tax rate, you bet those races were impor-
Other local decisions that non-voters missed included a
massive $300 million increase in long-term property
owner debt to support the Midpeninsula Open Space
District (as of this writing just barely passing), and more
property owner debt in support of the Cabrillo Unied
School District, the Sequoia Union High School District
and several elementary school districts.
As somnolent as this election became, it still featured
last minute dirty tricks by the county Democrat machine,
and in a judicial race no less. As reported in a local newspa-
per, the machines preferred candidate Ray Buenaventura
was in danger of losing (he nally did) so it lumbered into
late action.
U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, and state Sen.
Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, both highly placed members of
the machine, sent out late misleading (well, false) email
blasts in support of Buenaventura. Hill claimed that the
San Mateo County Bar Association had endorsed the
machine candidate. Just one slight problem with that
claim, the Bar Association doesnt endorse candidates.
Speier lent her name to the claim that the machine candi-
date had the support of many in law enforcement. If by
many she meant none of the countys police ofcer associ-
ations, then hey, it wasnt completely untrue.
Alternatively, maybe she meant no actual working law
enforcement ofcers but those long retired. If so, since a
retired Fresno County deputy sheriff supported the
machine-backed candidate, shes in the clear.
In other dirty politics news, several hard fought contests
came to interesting ends. Over in the Tri-Valley area in
Assembly District 16, Republican Catherine Baker bested
two Democrats whose ght featured government unions
versus business Democrats. Maybe you heard the dueling
ads over the BARTstrike (how could you miss them?) and
wondered what candidates they were talking about. It was
this district, and the union-backed Democrat took the sec-
ond-place slot. If the business Democrats turn to Baker or
sit out the race, given the districts strong Republican reg-
istration numbers, she could become the next assembly-
member from the area.
In Fremonts Senate District 10, the well-funded convict-
ed criminal and former assemblywoman Mary Hayashi was
defeated by rapist protector (her words) Assemblyman
Bob Wieckowski, D-Fremont, who received major funding
from the unions. Their brawl, and the presence of a third
Democrat, allowed Republican Peter Kuo to take second
place. Although a much longer shot than Baker, the bad
feelings from the primary coupled with a large Asian vot-
ing bloc could propel Kuo into the state Senate.
Finally, the Congressional District 17 dogght with
unions and enviros squaring off against 1 percent techie
Democrats, resulted in U.S. Rep. Mike Honda winning 48
percent while techie Democrat challenger Ro Khanna gar-
nered 27 percent. Round two comes in November.
Interestingly, more money was raised in this district than
spent by all the candidates in the statewide Republican race
for governor.
Yes, there was an election, and it counted. If you voted,
congratulations. If not, someone else decided your future
for you.

NEW YORK News that U.S.
employers added workers at a good
clip for the fourth straight month
helped send the stock market higher
The Standard & Poors 500 index
notched another record high, its
eighth in the past 10 days. For the
week, the index climbed 1.3 percent,
the third straight in which it has post-
ed solid gains.
Before the market opened, the Labor
Department said employers added
217,000 jobs to their payrolls in
May, in the range of what economists
had expected. The unemployment rate
stayed put at 6.3 percent. Wall Street
forecasters had expected it to inch up.
Its another positive sign, along
with retail sales, housing and every-
thing else weve been seeing, said JJ
Kinahan, chief strategist at TD
Ameritrade. Theres nothing in this
report to slow this market down, but
all everyone has wanted to talk about
is why the market is going to fall.
The S&P 500 index gained 8.98
points, or 0.5 percent, to close at
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 88.17 points, also 0.5 percent,
to 16,924.28, and the Nasdaq com-
posite climbed 25.17 points, 0.6 per-
cent, to 4,321.40.
Major indexes began a steady climb
at the start of the day then spent the
afternoon sitting tight. Industrial and
energy companies, whose success
often hinges on economic growth, led
seven of the 10 sectors in the index
Investor began to feel more opti-
mistic earlier in the week on signs
that the U.S. economy had shaken off
a rough winter and on big steps by the
European Central Bank to revive the
regions economy.
Other reports revealed a rise in man-
ufacturing growth in the worlds two
largest economies, U.S. and China. A
survey of the U.S. service industry,
which employs roughly nine out of
every ten workers, showed an increase
in new orders, production and hiring.
Even so, many investors question
the stock markets slow and steady
rise. There hasnt been a correction,
Wall Street-speak for a drop of 10 per-
cent or more, since August 2011. The
market is starting to get expensive
compared with the historical average.
Investors are currently paying $17 for
every $1 in earnings for companies in
the S&P 500 index, up from the his-
torical average around $15.
Robert Pavlik, chief market strate-
gist at Banyan Partners, a wealth-
management rm, said he wouldnt be
surprised to see the market drop in the
summer months, especially if compa-
nies turn in dismal second-quarter
The stock market isnt all that
expensive right now, Pavlik said,
but I just dont see the earnings
growth. Thats why I think second-
quarter earnings will be important.
Arista Networks soared in its rst
day of trading on the New York Stock
Exchange. Arista raised $225 million
from investors in its initial public
offering late Thursday, selling more
than ve million shares at a price of
$43 each. The company makes net-
working equipment for cloud comput-
ing, and had reportedly delayed its IPO
after tech stocks took a beating in
Aristas stock jumped an even $12,
or 28 percent, to $55.
Gap rose 87 cents, or 2 percent, to
$42. 06. After the market closed
Thursday, Gap reported higher sales in
May thanks to gains in its Banana
Republic and Old Navy brands. Sales
at stores open at least a year rose 1
percent, much better than analysts
One loser was Hertz, which slumped
after the car-rental company said in a
regulatory ling that it needs to cor-
rect its nancial results for the past
three years because of accounting
errors. Hertz Global Holdings dropped
$2.76, or 9 percent, to $27.73.
Stock market heads higher after jobs report
Emotional robot set for sale in Japan next year
TOKYO A cooing, gesturing humanoid on wheels
that can decipher emotions has been unveiled in Japan by
billionaire Masayoshi Son who says robots should be
tender and make people smile.
Sons mobile phone company Softbank said Thursday
that the robot it has dubbed Pepper will go on sale in
Japan in February for 198,000 yen ($1,900). Overseas
sales plans are under consideration but undecided.
The machine, which has no legs, but has gently gestic-
ulating hands appeared on a stage in a Tokyo suburb, coo-
ing and humming. It dramatically touched hands with Son
in a Genesis or E.T. moment.
Son, who told the crowd that his longtime dream was to
go into the personal robot business, said Pepper has been
programmed to read the emotions of people around it by
recognizing expressions and voice tones.
Our aim is to develop affectionate robots that can make
people smile, he said.
The 121 centimeter (48 inch) tall, 28 kilogram (62
pound) white Pepper, which has no hair but two large doll-
like eyes and a at-panel display stuck on its chest, was
developed jointly with Aldebaran Robotics, which pro-
duces autonomous humanoid robots.
ECBs actions are no
panacea for Europes economy
WASHINGTON Central banks cant x everything.
The European Central Bank took bold steps Thursday to
protect Europes fragile economic recovery, cutting inter-
est rates and offering to pump more money into the nan-
cial system.
Economists generally praised the moves, which are
designed to raise dangerously low ination in the 18
countries that use the euro and encourage lending. The
ECBs steps could also make exporters more competitive
by reducing the euros value and thereby making Europes
goods less expensive abroad.
But they say Europes economy wont return to health
until it receives long-term xes that the ECB cant pro-
vide on its own.
The ECBs actions will help, but only on the margin,
said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodys Analytics.
This will be a very long road.
Tech giant Cisco to hire 550
in North Carolina before 2018
RALEIGH, N.C. Cisco Systems Inc. plans to expand
its third-largest site by adding 550 jobs at its Research
Triangle Park hub before 2018.
Cisco plans to hire nance, operations and advanced
network services workers at an average salary of nearly
$73,000 a year plus benets. The average wage in Wake
County is $49,410 a year.
The company is adding to the 4,500 employees now
based in RTP, not moving jobs from elsewhere, Cisco
spokeswoman Robyn Jenkins Blum said in an email.

LONDON Government snooping
into phone networks is extensive
worldwide, one of the worlds largest
cellphone companies revealed Friday,
saying that several countries demand
direct access to its networks without
warrant or prior notice.
The detailed report from Vodafone,
which covers the 29 countries in which
it operates in Europe, Africa and Asia,
provides the most comprehensive look
to date at how governments monitor
mobile phone communications. It
amounts to a call for a debate on the
issue as businesses increasingly worry
about being seen as worthy of trust.
The most explosive revelation was
that in six countries, authorities
require immediate access to an opera-
tors network bypassing legal
niceties like warrants. It did not name
the countries for legal reasons and to
safeguard employees working there.
In those countries, Vodafone will
not receive any form of demand for
lawful interception access as the rele-
vant agencies and authorities already
have permanent access to customer
communications via their own direct
link, the report said.
Vodafones report comes one year
after former NSA systems analyst
Edward Snowden revealed that U.S. and
other countries intelligence agencies
routinely gathered huge amounts of
private data belonging to millions of
innocent people in America and across
the globe.
The revelations have focused partic-
ular attention on the role of Western
technology and telecommunications
rms, which stand accused of facilitat-
ing the mass surveillance by giving
spies unrestricted access to their net-
works. Several Silicon Valley compa-
nies have since attempted to restore
consumers trust by publishing data on
government surveillance.

they called it the switch from hell.
The ignition switch on the steering
column of the Chevrolet Cobalt and
other small cars was so poorly designed
that it easily slipped out of the run posi-

Engineers knew it; as early as 2004, a
Cobalt stalled on a GM test track when
the drivers knee grazed the key fob. By
GMs admission, the defective switches

Yet inside the auto giant, no one saw
it as a safety problem. For 11 years.
A315-page report by an outside attor-
ney found that the severity of the switch
problem was downplayed from the start.
Even as dozens of drivers were losing
control of their vehicles in terrifying
crashes, GM engineers, safety investi-
gators and lawyers considered the
switches a customer satisfaction
problem, incorrectly believing that
people could still steer the cars even
though the power steering went out
when the engines stalled. In safety

Julian Merryweather, left,and Matt Page were drafted by the Cleveland Indians and Washington Nationals, respectively. Both are Serra High graduates and started their college careers at
Skyline before transferring to Oklahoma Baptist University. Page was the NAIAPlayer of the Year in 2013 and was a two-time Sooner Athletic Conference Player of the Year.

They say velocity cant be taught. Dont
tell that to Julian Merryweather.
Friday, the former Serra High School and
Skyline College pitcher was a high draft
pick in the Major League Baseball First-
Year Player Draft. The right-hander was
selected in the fth round out of Oklahoma
Baptist University by the Cleveland
Indians. And a spike in velocity this season
was a big reason why.
At 6-4, Merryweather has long featured a
projectable frame. Not until this season,
when he started touching mid-90s with his
fastball, did he become a xture on draft
radars though.
He got to be the avor of the month in
Oklahoma as the spring wore on,
Oklahoma Baptist manager Bobby Cox
said. Everybody was in on it. So, it was
exciting for him.
Merryweather was one of two former Serra
and Skyline players to be drafted out of OBU
Friday, as Matt Page was selected in the
10th round by the Washington Nationals.
Former Menlo School standout Danny
Diekroeger was the nal pick on the second
day of the three-day event, held in Secaucus,
New Jersey. Diekroeger was selected out of
Stanford in the 10th round by the St. Louis
My reaction was pretty pumped up,
Merryweather said. Its something that you
just cant really prepare for. It just hits you
and you cant believe its real. It really has-
nt sunk in.
Just the sixth overall senior right-handed
pitcher to be drafted this year, Merryweather
increased his stock immensely as he
increased his velocity last summer. The
secret to his success was a three-day clinic
he attended last June in Montgomery, Texas
at Rob Wilforths Texas Baseball Ranch.
The last day of the camp, after a long day
in the Texas heat, it was 105 degrees, sweat-
ing, Merryweather said. The last thing
they make you do is this drill and I hit 101
mph doing a crow-hop sort of thing. It was

The Diekroeger brothers wreak havoc on
sports media. And even MLB Network is not
After it was announced Friday on the MLB
Draft webcast that Danny Diekroeger had
been selected in the 10th round by the St.
Louis Cardinals, even the likes of jugger-
naut analysts Jonathan Mayo and Jim Callis
had to backtrack on initially reading Kenny
Diekroegers bio of having previously been
drafted out of Menlo School.
The trio of brothers from Woodside have
plenty in common to confuse. All have
graduated from Menlo. Come the fall, all
will have attended Stanford, as youngest
brother Mikey Diekroeger embarks on his
collegiate baseball career. And as of Friday,
two have been drafted by MLB. That number
could change when the draft concludes
Saturday with rounds 11-40.
It was a bittersweet draft day for middle
brother Danny though. By the time his
name was called as the nal pick of the day
by St. Louis, his Stanford Cardinal had
already dropped their best-of-three Super
Regional opener 11-6 at Vanderbilt.
Danny was jazzed entering into the series
according to Kenny though, after his colle-
giate career was extended in Mondays

NASHVILLE, Tenn. The Vanderbilt
Commodores took advantage of Stanfords
sputtering start on Friday to beat the
Cardinal 11-6 and put themselves one win
away from their rst College World Series
berth since 2011.
Its a pretty cool feeling, we just have to
play how were playing and everything will

Reynolds said.
Game 2 is Saturday.
Reynolds matched his career-best with

Stanford, coming off a walk-off win in
regionals at Indiana on Monday, couldnt
have started much worse. The Cardinal
walked ve of Vanderbilts rst nine batters

through three innings.
Cardinal coach Mark Marquess said starter
John Hochstatter was out of sync in his
poorest outing this season. The junior
walked ve and allowed ve runs in one
inning of work.
We just gave them too much early,
Marquess said. Obviously, you cant give a
quality team like Vanderbilt many free base
runners, and we did.

NEWYORK California Chrome is 1 1/2
miles away from ending the longest drought
in racing history 36 years without a Triple
Crown winner.
Eleven horses as good or better than him
have tried to complete the sweep in the
Belmont Stakes and failed since 1978. The
chestnut colt with the modest pedigree and
self-described dumb ass owners can either
make history Saturday or become just another
Ive watched the other horses where they
failed, California Chrome trainer Art
Sherman said. I dont know if they just got
at outrun or got tired from the Triple Crown
California Chrome and 10 rivals will run the
longest race of their lives on Belmont Parks
deep, sandy track with its sweeping turns. No
other Triple Crown winner faced more than
seven rivals.
I feel more condent coming into this race
than I did any race, said Sherman, who at 77
is overseeing the best horse of his career. Im
getting pumped up.
California Chrome completed his nal run-
through on Friday, galloping two miles
around the Belmont oval after visiting the
paddock where he will be saddled on race day.
He stood quietly in stall No. 2 before walking
through the tunnel toward the track, pausing
several times for photographers. His ears
pricked at the sound of clicking cameras.
The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner
will jog again early Saturday, about 13 hours
before he tries to become the 12th horse to
win the Triple Crown.
Hall of Fame trainer Nick Zito, whose hors-
es spoiled Triple Crown bids in 2004 and
2008, said that how California Chrome han-
dles the extra quarter-mile in the Belmont will
be crucial to his chances.
Smarty Jones was in front going a mile and
a quarter, and that last quarter of a mile got
him, Zito said. Its a different race. Its just
If theres one worry Sherman has, its
whether his chestnut colt with four white
socks can run that far after a tough campaign
of three big races in ve weeks.
One thing I always wonder about is stami-
na, Sherman said. It could be walking pace
the rst part of it. All of a sudden, the guys
kicking in the last part dont get there.
Ultimately, Sherman will leave the deci-
sion-making to Victor Espinoza, who saw his
bid for a Triple Crown aboard War Emblem end
in defeat at the 2002 Belmont. He and
California Chrome have teamed to win six
consecutive races.
He gets him to relax. I never give him any
instructions, Sherman said. Im sure there
will be different tactics, but thats OK as long
as Victor can have a spot where he can run the
last quarter of a mile.
Racing has been aching for another Triple
Crown champion since Afrmed became the
third horse in the 1970s to sweep the Derby,
Preakness and Belmont. California Chrome
and his team would be welcome members of
the exclusive club if the colt can pull it off in
front of a crowd expected to top 100,000.
It has to be a super horse to win that,
Espinoza said.
Owners Steve Coburn and Perry Martin have
shown that a couple of working stiffs who
spent $8,000 on a mare they bred to a stallion
for $2,500 can trump the sports blue blood
owners and breeders. They were called dumb
asses by a trainer for buying a mare who gave
no indication that she could produce a stand-
out offspring who could run fast.
This horse has given everybody else out
there the incentive to say, You know what, we
can do it, too, Coburn said. This horse is
letting America know that the little guy can
Coburn who favors a silver belt buckle as
big as his cream-colored cowboy hat and
Martin who likes keeping a low-prole
showed their sense of humor in naming their
racing operation Dumb Ass Partners and stick-
ing a donkey on their silks.
Martin was the one who emailed Sherman
with an audacious plan to get California
Chrome to the Kentucky Derby before he
had even run a race. Now the colt is one win
away from racing immortality.
You just like to see a great horse win it and
I think hes got the potential to be a great
horse, said Patrice Wolfson, whose late hus-
band owned Afrmed, so well be cheering for
As much as Sherman wants California
Chrome to win the trainer will wear the
same lucky suit he did at the Derby and
Preakness he can accept a loss, too.
He doesnt have to win another race as far
as Im concerned, he said. Its a pleasure to
be around a horse that has so much class and is
100 percent healthy.

Top pick Clowney signs with Texans
HOUSTON The Houston Texans have signed No. 1
overall pick Jadeveon Clowney.
The team didnt release any details on the contract.
Clowney, a defensive end who will be converted to a line-
backer in Houstons 3-4 defensive scheme, had 130 tack-
les, including 47 for losses and 24 sacks in three seasons at
South Carolina. He also set a school record by forcing nine
fumbles in his career.
The Texans hope the 6-foot-5, 266-pound Clowney will
pair with 2012 Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt to cre-
ate one of the most fearsome pass rushes in the NFL.
Hes the third top overall pick in team history. Houston
selected quarterback David Carr in 2002 and defensive end
Mario Williams in 2006.
Dallas school recruiting scandal prompts rings
DALLAS Dallas school ofcials say more than a dozen
coaches and other district employees have been red as a
result of falsifying student residency documents in an effort
to assemble stronger basketball teams.
Superintendent Mike Miles announced the rings Friday.
The terminations include district Athletic Director Jeff
Johnson and Madison High School coach Roderick
Johnson, whose teams won state titles in 2013 and 2014.
Miles said an investigation by the district determined
residency documents were falsied so that star athletes out-
side the district could compete for Dallas teams. He said the
recruiting violations were unacceptable.
The investigation began following the March death of
Wilmer-Hutchins basketball player Troy Causey, who died
in a ght with another teenager.
Investigators learned Causey played for Wilmer-Hutchins
even though he lived in Richardson.

SAN FRANCISCO Buster Posey hit
a tiebreaking two-run homer in the
eighth inning and the San Francisco
Giants won for the eighth time in 10
games by beating the New York Mets 4-
2 on Friday night.
The big blast off Carlos Torres (2-3)
capped a three-hit day for Posey, who
entered the game with only four hits in
his past 42 at-bats at home.
Angel Pagan started the rally with a
leadoff walk against Torres and advanced
to second on a groundout. Posey fol-
lowed with a long drive to left-center for
his eighth homer and just his 12th
extra-base hit of the season as the
Giants (40-21) became the rst team in
the majors to reach 40 wins.
Daniel Murphy hit a two-run homer
for the Mets.
Jeremy Affeldt (1-1) pitched a score-
less eighth on his 35th birthday to get
the win. Sergio Romo got three outs for
his 19th save in 21 chances.
Matt Cain allowed two runs and three
hits in seven innings in his rst start
back from a stint on the disabled list for
a strained right hamstring. But he got a
no-decision and still has only one win
in nine starts in a rough season that has
included two trips to the disabled list.
Cain was in complete control with a 1-
0 lead having faced the minimum 18 bat-
ters through six innings before the Mets
quickly turned the tide in the seventh.
Matt den Dekker led off the inning
with a double for New Yorks second hit
of the game and Murphy followed with
his fourth home run of the season to put
the Mets ahead 2-1.
The Giants tied it in the bottom half
when Brandon Hicks and Brandon
Crawford teamed up again to produce a
run. Hicks drew a two-out walk from
Jonathon Niese, advanced to second on
a wild pitch and scored on Crawfords
single to center.
The duo produced San Franciscos rst
run in the fth when Hicks tripled and
scored on Crawfords sacrice y to
make it 1-0.
Niese allowed two runs and ve hits in
seven innings, extending his streak of
consecutive starts allowing three earned
runs or fewer to 16.
Posey delivers, Giants win
BALTIMORE Pinch-hitter Stephen
Vogt singled in the tiebreaking run in the
11th inning, and the Oakland Athletics got
home runs from Josh Donaldson and Derek
Norris in a 4-3 victory over the Baltimore
Orioles on Friday night.
It was the sixth win in seven games for the
Athletics, who own the best record in the AL
(38-23) and the best road record in the
majors (21-11).
Chris Davis and Manny Machado home-
red for the Orioles.
Both dugouts emptied briey in the third
inning after Donaldson slapped a tag on
Machado, but peace was restored without
John Jaso led off the 11th with a pinch-hit
double off Evan Meek (0-2). With one out,
Gold Glove shortstop J.J. Hardy botched a
grounder, his fourth error in two games.
Meek went to third on the play and scored
when Vogt hit a liner to left.
Fernando Abad (1-2) worked the 10th and
Sean Doolittle got three outs for his eighth
The Orioles missed a chance to win it in
the 10th when Nick Markakis was thrown
out at the plate by Moss on Adam Jones
one-out single to right. Nelson Cruz was
then cut down trying to steal home.
In the third, Donaldson tagged Machado
in the chest near third base for the third out,
causing Machado to lose his balance and
topple backward. Machado quickly stood up
and yelled close-up at Donaldson, apparent-
ly questioning the force of the tag, and play-
ers from both sides crowded around the duo
before Orioles manager Buck Showalter
pulled Machado away.
That appeared to be the end of it, but with
two outs and nobody on in the sixth inning,
Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen threw an inside
pitch near Donaldsons chin. After retreat-
ing from the batters box, Donaldson smiled
knowingly. But he expressed anger minutes
later, when Chen hit him on the arm with
another inside fastball.
Prior to that, Chen retired 10 straight bat-
Chen gave up two runs both on homers
in 6 1-3 innings. He left with a 3-2 lead,
but the bullpen blew it.
In the Oakland eighth, pinch-hitter Coco
Crisp drew a walk from Darren ODay, stole
second and scored on a two-out single by
Yoenis Cespedes.
Oakland starter Tommy Milone allowed
three runs and eight hits in six innings.
Donaldson put the As up 1-0 in the rst
with his 17th home run, and Norris connect-
ed leading off the second.

Nadal, Djokovic to meet in French Open nal
PARIS Rafael Nadal is going for No. 9 at the French
Open, and the only man that can stop him is Novak
Nadal is already a record eight-time champion with a life-
time 65-1 record at Roland Garros. One more victory on the
red clay will make him the rst man to win ve in a row and
give him his 14th Grand Slam title tied in second place
with Pete Sampras.
The top-seeded Spaniard reached the nal by beating
Wimbledon champion Andy Murray 6-3, 6-2, 6-1 Friday on
Court Philippe Chatrier, the stadium Nadal calls his favorite
place to play. Djokovic defeated Ernests Gulbis 6-3, 6-3, 3-
6, 6-3 in the rst seminal.
Nadal has beaten Djokovic at the French Open in all ve
of their meetings, starting with a quarternal victory in
2006. They also met in the seminals in 2007, 08 and 13,
and in the nal in 2012.
(Its) nothing new for him to be in the nal. He has the
motivation to win Roland Garros for the rst time for sure,
Nadal said of Djokovic. But at the same time, he has the
pressure to win for the rst time. I have the pressure that I
want to win and the motivation that I want to win the
The second-seeded Djokovic, however, has beaten Nadal
the last four times they have played, including on clay in
the nal in Rome last month.
Im going to try to be aggressive, because that is the
only way I can win against him, Djokovic said. I know
that, of course, this is the court hes most dominant on. He
has only lost one time in his career. This is where he plays
his best.
The winner on Sunday will also be ranked No. 1 on
Monday. Nadal is currently at the top, but needs to extend
his French Open winning streak to 35 matches to stay

three scoreless Vanderbilt innings with a hit
to right to drive in Dansby Swanson in the
bottom of the seventh.
Commodores starter Tyler Beede, drafted
14th overall Thursday night by the San
Francisco Giants, pitched three scoreless
innings before faltering, giving up back-to-
back singles to open the fourth and consecu-
tive walks to start the fth. Tyler Ferguson
came on in relief with two outs in the top of
the fth and pitched 2 2-3 innings for the win.
Ferguson hadnt played in three weeks
because of Vanderbilts recent success on the
mound. He walked the rst batter he faced
before forcing a y out to end the Cardinal bar-
That rst hitter was a little nerve-wrack-
ing, Ferguson said. Even though we were up
10-nothing, we knew they were going to ght
back. They did that against Indiana.
Ferguson wiped out a single to lead off the
sixth with a pair of strikeouts and a y out. He
gave up a single and walk in the top of the
eighth, but Brian Miller closed for Vanderbilt
and got Austin Slater to ground into a elders
choice then struck out Zach Hoffpauir to end
the threat.
Corbin said the Commodores just didnt
need their bullpen much last week in the
regional with Ferguson not getting a chance
in the Southeastern Conference tournament.
So to get the baseball and pitch the way
that he did, I was really proud of him and
happy for our team that he was able to pick
them up, Corbin said.
Miller and Ferguson combined to pitch 4 1-
3 scoreless innings, giving up two hits.

IMSA co-founder
John Bishop dies at 87
DAYTONABEACH, Fla. Sports car rac-
ings John Bishop, co-founder of the
International Motor Sports Association,
has died. He was 87.
Bishop died Thursday in San Rafael,
California, of complications from a recent
illness, according to a release from the
sports car sanctioning organization.
Bishop co-founded IMSA in 1969 with
wife Peggy and NASCAR founder Bill
France Sr. after a surprise telephone cold
call from France.
Bill said he thought there was a need for
a new organization, and that he thought I
might be the person to run it, Bishop said
in a recent interview. Peggy and I didnt
know what we were getting ourselves into.
With Frances financial assistance,
Bishop, an experienced ofcial with the
Sports Car Club of America, and his wife
built IMSAinto a premier sports car organi-
zation that peaked in the 1980s and 1990s
with the Camel-sponsored GT Series.
Sports brief
home run by Tommy Edman.
I talked to him [Wednesday], Kenny
said. Hes really excited. He has that sour
taste of the (2012) Florida State Super
Regional defeat. So, I think hes looking to
have it be a different outcome this time.
It was a surreal scene at the 2012 Super
Regional after all the pomp and circum-
stance surrounding a massive Stanford draft
class which saw Kenny selected in the fourth
round by the Kansas City Royals. Amid a
weekend of dreadful rains, Stanford was
swept by Florida State, as the Seminoles
outscored the Cardinal 35-8 in the nal two
games of Kennys collegiate career.
Since signing with the Royals, Kenny has
battled from the get-go to keep his head
above water. Currently with Kansas City
High-A afliate Wilmington, Kenny is bat-
ting .187 on the season and has posted just
a .182 career batting average.
Ive denitely struggled. No doubt. My
numbers reect that, Kenny said. This
year though, Im really starting to feel like I
did back when I was playing really well
early in college. Thats what Im really
focused on most, is just getting better every
day. The last couple weeks have been great
and Im really optimistic about the future.
After being relegated to part-time duty
this season, Kenny played seven straight
days due to an injury to Blue Rocks short-
stop Raul Mondesi, Jr. And the eldest
Diekroeger brother made the most of his
opportunity, going 9 for 27 including four
multi-hit games from May 23-29.
Ive felt a lot better in the last couple
weeks, Kenny said. Ive got a chance to
play more, to play every day, and with base-
ball it denitely helps to
get in the groove at the
plate when youre play-
ing every day.
Getting in a groove was
seldom a problem during
Kennys freshman season
at Stanford when he hit
.356 en route to winning
Pac-10 Freshman of the
Year honors in 2010. In
2011, his production
tailed off with the outset of the composite-
bat era, hitting .292, before hitting .275 as
a junior.
After another season and a half of decline
since going pro, Kenny retooled his swing
entering into the 2014 season. In adding a
higher leg kick, however, he still scufed at
the plate. So, he recently went back to a
short stride a la Michael Young and has seen
instant results.
The last couple weeks, I said screw it and
I went back to the approach I used in college
and Ive had a lot of success with that,
Kenny said. I had to change something. I
was hitting around .100. Something needed
to change. At Stanford, they preach getting
your foot down before the pitch comes. Not
everybody does it in pro ball. But every-
bodys different. Its just about nding what
works for you.
As for Danny, in being drafted by St.
Louis, he will join an organization which
touts another player from the 2012 Stanford
draft class in Stephen Piscotty, who is bat-
ting .288 at Triple-A Memphis and ranks
third in the Pacic Coast League with 17
Meanwhile with the big-league club,
Cardinals inelder Daniel Descalso a San
Carlos native started a 4-6-3 triple play
Friday on a line drive of the bat of the Blue
Jayss Jose Bautista.

NEW YORK The sons of former big
leaguers Lenny Dykstra and Charlie
Leibrandt were among the players selected
during the second day of the Major League
Baseball draft.
Luke Dykstra, an infielder at Westlake
High School in suburban Los Angeles, was
drafted in the seventh round by Atlanta.
Hes the second son of the former All-Star
outfielder to be drafted; infielder Cutter
Dykstra was a second-round pick by
Milwaukee in 2008 and is currently in
Washingtons system.
Florida State left-hander Brandon
Leibrandt went in the sixth round to
Philadelphia. He was 4-1 with a 1.83 ERA
this season, but missed several weeks with a
severely bruised left leg.
After having no picks in the rst two
rounds, Baltimore made eight selections
Friday, including Notre Dame right-hander
Pat Connaughton, who also started for the
Fighting Irish basketball team.

the camp record. That was denitely the
moment that changed my whole thought
process about baseball and me being serious
about being drafted and all that. That was the
turning point.
As the 158th overall pick in this years
draft, Merryweather becomes the highest
selection ever for a Skyline alum in the June
draft, passing Dom Pierce who was drafted
in the seventh round out of Skyline by the
Texas Rangers in 1988. Last year, catcher
Grant Nelson also a product of both Serra
and Skyline was drafted in the ninth
round by the Diamondbacks out of St. Louis
University in 2013. Merryweather is also
the highest drafted player out of OBU during
Coxs tenure, which began in 1984.
Were just excited for Julian and his fam-
i l y, Cox said. To get drafted is a big deal
anyway. Thats one of the hardest things to
get to have happen is to be drafted as a base-
ball player. But to go in the fth round as a
senior right-handed pitcher, that puts you in
pretty good company there.
Its especially quite a big leap after an
admittedly subpar sophomore season at
Skyline in 2012. Merryweather nished an
abysmal season with a 0-7 baseball. Two
years later as a senior transfer at NAIApow-
erhouse OBU, Merryweather posted a 12-3
record with a 1.07 ERA the second best
single-season ERAin program history.
I would never have given up on baseball,
even though [2012] was one of my worst
years in my entire baseball career,
Merryweather said. But I would have not
even dreamed of getting drafted in the top
ve rounds. That was something not even
on my radar at that point.
Upon receiving the news hed been draft-
ed, the rst person Merryweather called was
his mother, Ulrike. Known throughout his
Serra and Skyline careers as Merryweathers
biggest fan, having attended most of his
games, she continued to follow his career at
OBU via streaming webcasts. It was an emo-
tional call, according to Merryweather.
Not a lot of words, honestly, he said. A
lot of yelling, screaming and crying. But
she just told me she was really happy for
me, that this is a dream come true and that
shes always believed in me. Shes been
great over the years. Shes the person I
really want to do this for.
For Page, receiving the news hed been
drafted was a strange odyssey. Six slots
before the Nationals selected him with the
304th overall pick of the draft, the Giants
made their nal selection of Fridays 10th
round by drafting Matt Gage, a left-handed
pitcher out of Siena College.
Page said his girlfriend, understandably,
misheard the name being announced on and immediately called to cele-
brate Page being drafted by the Giants. As
he was following the draft board on his
phone, Page knew better, and six picks
later, as he was driving past Sequoia High
School on El Camino Real, he received the
news for which he was hoping.
Its kind of crazy the way things happen,
but it was awesome, Page said.
In joining the Nationals, Page will be
joining an organization with some familiar
faces. Tony Renda, with whom Page played
for a year at Serra, is currently at Nationals
High-Aafliate Potomac. Richie Mirowski,
another ex-Serra guy who played at OBU, is
currently on the disabled list at Nationals
Double-Aafliate Harrisburg.
On May 28, OBU was eliminated from the
NAIA World Series in Lewiston, Idaho for
the second straight year. Merryweather took
the loss against Oklahoma Wesleyan in an
11-inning thriller, pitching out of the
bullpen for the rst time in his two years
with the Bison.
Sometimes theyre going to hit you, and
thats just kind of the way it panned out,
Merryweather said. It was a tough way to
lose. But overall it was one of the greatest
seasons Ive had with the team. We set a lot
of different records as a team and that was
just a great experience overall.
At 55-9, the Bison tabbed the best overall
record in program history. They also set a
record for the best start in school history by
opening the year with 22 consecutive wins.
Page and Merryweather were both named
NAIArst-team All-Americans.

Queen of Industry
by Joey Oliva
South San Francisco, also known as The Industrial City, lies north of San Bruno, but still plays a
signicant role in the development and subsequent success of Marshall Realty. Our family was rst
bitten by the real estate bug as a result of my Great Grandmother, Augustine Bianchi. A South City
resident and former Queen of South City, Augie, as she was known, started our family on this
career path and enjoyed much success as an employee at Marshall Realty.
A true pioneer in the Real Estate Industry and one of the rst successful female Realtors, Augie not
only inspired my grandfather to begin Marshall Realty, but came to work as one of his rst employees.
As anyone who knew her can attest, there are some wild and wacky anecdotes of her early years in the
Real Estate business. A true character of the peninsula, my great grandmother would stop at nothing
to get that house sold on time, for the best price, and with both sides happy. She also just happened
to be one of the rst members of the Million Dollar Club along with Marshall Realty agent Fran
Presta back in their day.
To this day, an Augie story inspires the multiple agents we have in this ofce. Her foray into Real
Estate as a woman and home-maker in 1954 continues to teach and show a new generation of
Realtors how with hard work and diligence, closings and valued relationships are still the most
important aspects of any real estate transaction. Even in todays changing and unpredictable housing
market, the lessons learned from my great grandmother permeate my daily transactions and client

7-1 record at the Mecca of boxing.
They always support me and
make me (feel) welcome, Cotto
said about the Garden crowd. I
know theyre going to (have) the
same attitude Saturday.
While Cotto is banking on fan
support, what is unknown is the
condition of Martinezs knee and
his conditioning.
The 39-year old Martinez (51-2-
2, 28 knockouts) has not fought in
more than year, as he has recuper-
ated from knee surgery. His last
bout was a 12-round win over
Martin Murray on April 27, 2013,
in Argentina.
Following a request by the Cotto
camp, the New York State Athletic
Commission had Martinez under-
go a medical exam a month ago.
The NYSAC ruled Martinez could
wear a sleeve similar to the one
New York Knicks forward Carmelo
Anthony wears on his shooting
arm over his knee Saturday
I have no issue because after I
sent a sample (of the sleeve) to the
commission, they said (its) OK
(and) I can use it, Martinez said.
I am 100 percent healthy. I feel
very good. You will see that on
June 7.
Naturally, Cotto and his team
question the veracity of Martinezs
statement. During Cottos open
workout in Hoboken, New Jersey,
on Tuesday, Cottos trainer,
Freddie Roach, said Martinezs
timing will be off because he
didnt spar that much for the
ght, then added Martinez was a
four-round ghter.
Im not Murray, Cotto said.
Im not any of the fighters
(Martinez fought previously). Im
not worried about how much hes
going to weigh. I worry about
doing our job.
The 12-round bout is the main
event of a nine-ght card.

Lily Kings new novel, Euphoria,
unfolds on a South Pacic island where a trio
of young anthropologists lives among iso-
lated tribes to make groundbreaking studies
of primitive cultures.
Rich in detail, at times fascinating and
harrowing, the story offers a many-sided
look at love and eros and bracing doses
of reality.
The time is
the early
1930s. A mar-
ried couple and
a single man,
s t r u g g l i n g
with their eld

opening sequence is arresting. The couple
New Yorker Nell Stone and her Australian
husband, Schuyler Fenwick, known as Fen
are hastily leaving a violent tribe where
their work has not gone well. Stone has
skin lesions and is feverish, but Fen seems
abusive to her anyway.
Soon they will meet the third part of their
triangle, Andrew Bankson, a Britisher in a
black mood. He helps Stone regain her
health, and directs the couple to a more suit-
able tribe to study, not too far from his own
Around these main characters, King
weaves in touches of historical context from
the eld of anthropology when Margaret
Mead was producing best-selling books on
her studies of young people in Samoa and
New Guinea. In many ways, Meads life is
reected through Stone.
Stone is a well-regarded researcher whose
book, The Children of Kirakira, has been
a success, and, like Mead, she has uncon-
ventional views of sex roles. Gender issues,
sexual customs and taboos are themes that
turn throughout Euphoria, some in dark

Inspirations in Oil
By Judy Richter
Although Show Boat has generally
been considered a pioneering work of the
American musical theater, it has an operatic
scope. The San Francisco Opera makes that
point in its lavish company premiere of the
1927 work that composer Jerome Kern and
lyricist-author Oscar Hammerstein II based
on a novel by American Edna Ferber.
Many of its songs are familiar to
American audiences, but they sound better
with operatic voices. As soon as sonorous
bass Morris Robinson starts singing one of
those songs, Ol Man River, early in the
show, it takes on a new resonance.
Robinson plays Joe, a black worker on the
Cotton Blossom, the titular show boat on
the Mississippi.
Another outstanding singer is baritone
Michael Todd Simpson as Gaylord Ravenal,
a debonair gambler who happens upon the
boat and immediately falls in love with the
owners daughter, Magnolia Hawks, played
by soprano Heidi Stober. Their Make
Believe upon meeting is another of the
shows many highlights. Stober also is a
talented dancer and even plays guitar in one

Families in a frenzy over Disneys Frozen
By Tamara Lush
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. For the Calder family, the
Frozen frenzy began when the Disney movie came out in
late 2013 and they took their 7-year-old daughter Caroline
to see it in the theater.
Caroline then saw it again, with a grandparent. Then with
the other set of grandparents. Then came the Disney cruise
to the Caribbean with the Frozen sing-along, the pur-
chase of Frozen-themed pajamas instead of Frozen
dolls, which were sold out and waiting in line at a Disney
store to obtain a rafe ticket for a chance to purchase a
Frozen dress.
Weve become the Frozen family, said Carolines mom
Kristin, 41, who says the Frozen CD or DVD plays daily
in her vehicle or home in Boynton Beach, Florida. It is
part of our everyday life.
Her daughter Caroline describes her love of the movie like
this: I really like Elsa because of her frozen power. And I
really like Anna because shes really nice a lot.
Caroline added that the ice blue dress worn by Elsa when
she sings the song Let it Go is her favorite part of the
Recently, the family had a Frozen-themed birthday
party for Caroline with life-sized cutouts of the animated
lm stars, a plush toy depicting the movies snowman,
Olaf, and Frozen- themed invitations downloaded from the
craft site Etsy. For $350, the Calders even hired performers
to portray Anna and Elsa, the sisters from the movie, to
sing and play with the kids for an hour. It was the perform-
ers sixth Frozen-themed birthday party that day.
For the uninitiated, Frozen which tells the story of
how Anna and Elsa overcome Elsas terrible power to turn
everything into ice and snow has become the fth-high-
est grossing lm of all time, raking in $1.2 billion in box
ofce earnings worldwide.
The huge demand for anything Frozen has created a
shortage of merchandise on Disney store shelves all over
North America. Its also led to hours-long waits to see the
princesses at Disney parks in Florida and California.
Its even become an international phenomenon. The tour
company Adventures by Disney added Geirangerfjord,
Norway, to a new itinerary this year inspired by the movie.
The lms fantasy kingdom of Arendelle was based on the
fjord. Calder looked into Disneys Norway cruise for 2015,
but shelved the idea over cost $15,000 for her family
plus airfare.
She also gured hiring the princess performers for her
daughters party was cheaper and easier than taking the
whole family to Disney World. One day last week, the wait
to meet the sisters at the parks Princess Fairytale Hall was
listed on a park sign as 300 minutes ve hours by
9:30 a.m., a half-hour after the park opened, according to
Deborah Bowen, a Tampa resident and long-time Disney
Ive never seen anything like this, the fury, the popular-
ity that these two princesses have had, Bowen said.
Bowen, a member of Disney Parks Mom Panel, which
provides vacation advice, says a saner strategy for seeing
the princesses is to use the MyDisney app to book a
FastPass appointment, which assures access within a desig-
nated time window.
But Jessica Becak, 33, of Long Island, New York, wasnt
able to reserve a visit using the FastPass system other
visitors had snagged the appointments before she booked a
June trip to Disney with her 3-year-old daughter. So shes
downplaying the possibility of seeing Anna and Elsa at the
park because she knows it might not be realistic. Waiting in
the standby line just isnt an option, she said.
My daughters not going to be able to stand in line for
two to ve hours in the heat, she said. So right now, were
glossing over it. If we walk by and it doesnt look too trau-
matic, we might try it.
Shes thankful that Anna and Elsa have been added to
Disneys Festival of Fantasy Parade, so her daughter will
likely be able to at least spot the princesses while in the
But Becak was persistent enough to snare a hard-to-nd
Elsa toddler doll earlier this year though she had to spend
an entire day literally calling every Disney store in the U.S.
to get one. Finally, a store in Pittsburgh came through. No
luck with any other Frozen merchandise, though: We
havent been able to nd anything since, she said.
Frozen has boosted Disneys bottom line; in May it
posted second-quarter earnings that beat Wall Street fore-
Disney CEO Bob Iger said the companys consumer prod-
ucts revenue grew 16 percent to $885 million, lifted by
Frozen, whose merchandise accounted for nine of the top
10 best-selling items in Disney stores. Iger said Frozen
had become one of Disneys best franchises. The company
plans to increase the lms characters in its parks, develop
a Broadway show and is working on books and interactive

And that latter task aint easy. But theres
one major reason that the movie succeeds in
this regard. Her name is Shailene Woodley.
Its hard to believe its only been two
years and change since Woodleys breakout
performance in The Descendants. Dont
you feel like youve known her much
longer? Perhaps its because shes estab-
lished herself so rmly as one of our most
interesting and yet also most grounded,
honest young actors. Her mere presence
lends an air of authenticity to whatever else
is happening onscreen.
Thats particularly crucial in the role of
Hazel Grace Lancaster, a 16-year-old with
an easy wit intelligent, wry and prag-
matic without being overly cynical. Hazel
barely survived thyroid cancer as a preteen;
a ashback shows the agonizing moment
when her mother (a touching Laura Dern, in
a difcult part) told her it was OK to let
But Hazel didnt, and now, buoyed by an
experimental drug, shes already taking col-
lege classes. She wears nasal tubes, which
carry oxygen from the portable tank she
carries with her always. Urged by her doting
parents to try a cancer support group, she
reluctantly attends, and there meets Gus
better known to readers as Augustus Waters
(the appealing Ansel Elgort), along with
his sidekick, Isaac (Nat Wolff). Gus is hand-
some very handsome and somewhat
cocky, though clearly this is a ghting
mechanism. Gus has lost a leg to cancer, but
hes apparently in remission, and deter-
mined to live not just any life, but an
extraordinary one.
But what denes an extraordinary life?
The movie explores this theme as it follows
Hazel and Gus to Amsterdam. Their goal: to
meet Hazels favorite author, Peter Van
Houten (a suitably crusty Willem Dafoe),
and ask questions about his novel, An
Imperial Afiction a book with which
Hazel is obsessed.
The trip is by turns disappointing, inspir-
ing, joyful, and tragic. Acrucial love scene
is beautifully handled, with nary a false
note. Its unfortunate that an earlier
moment, involving a trip to the Anne Frank
House, feels uncomfortable cheesy, and,
in its juxtapositions, somewhat tone-deaf.
Its important to note that the scene and
the rationale behind it is conveyed far
more successfully in the book.
But thats a rare misstep. And now we must
inform you, dear moviegoer: About three-
quarters of the way through, if not sooner,
youll start hearing snifes, then sobs, all
around you. And its hard to imagine you too
wont succumb, if just a little.
And thats because of Woodley. The
world is not a wish-granting factory, Gus
says. No, but in nding a young actress who
can make an audience fall apart while her
character somehow remains fairly together
herself, the lmmakers certainly saw their
own wish granted.
The Fault in Our Stars, a 20th Century
Fox Film Corp. release, is rated PG-13 by
the Motion Picture Association of America
for thematic elements, some sexuality and
brief strong language. Running time: 125

NEW YORK When The Fault in Our
Stars landed on bookshelves more than
two years ago, John Greens enthusiasm
was nonexistent for a screen version of his
story featuring teens with cancer.
I had had some Hollywood experiences
before that werent great and I felt like
Hollywood would struggle to make a movie
where the female romantic lead has nasal
cannula tubes in her nose for the entire
movie, he said.
Well, hello 2014 and Monday nights pre-
miere of TFIOS, the movie. Its the rst of
Greens best-selling books to go
Hollywood after he was won over by the
scripts dedication to his characters in the
clutches of adolescence. Oh, and it didnt
hurt that one of the producers was a huge
Liverpool soccer club fan like Green.
Already a rock star among young readers,
mostly of the teen girl variety, the Orlando,
Florida-raised Green, the
guy who looks straight
out of central casting as
Unassuming Writer, now
walks red carpets, clowns
on morning TV and ban-
ters with new BFF Nat
Wolff and the movies
other young stars,
Shailene Woodley and
newcomer Ansel Elgort.
In his plaid button-down shirt and conser-
vative suit jacket, it was the bespectacled,
36-year-old Green not the hunky,
younger Wolff who got the loudest
screams Saturday from several hundred girls
who made their way to the publishing indus-
trys annual BookExpo America.
Green leapt off the stage of the stuffed
conference hall to bear-hug a 16-year-old
amputee, Robert Berger of Damerest, New
Jersey. Berger, a high school sophomore
with a prosthetic like TFIOS love interest
Gus Waters, made his way to a microphone
to offer: Id like to thank you, John, for
answering a lifelong question of mine,
which is, whether during sex, I keep my leg
on or off.
Green, a father of two, is ever respectful
of Berger and his other nerdghters, the
community of fans worldwide who have led
him to Hollywoods door and greet each
other with his tagline: Dont Forget to Be
Awesome! They even have a special thing
they do with their arms, crossing at the
chest and spreading their ngers in twos.
You sort of have to be there.
He was vigilant as a presence on the
movies set, sobbing when the lmmakers
got it right and cheering on Woodley,
Elgort and Wolff, who is slated to star in the
next stop on Greens big screen journey for
his Paper Towns.
So, can Green hold on to his mojo? His is
the kind of authenticity among young peo-
ple that led a headline writer at The New
Yorker to dub him the Teen Whisperer.
Green doesnt love that term.
I dont whisper to teens very often. I
think whispering to teens would be weird
and creepy, he joked. I love talking to
teenagers. I love making stuff for teenagers
and making stuff with them.
Green was an early YouTuber. He has a
rapid-re delivery in an ongoing series of
videos he exchanges with his brother Hank,
who lives in Montana. Their Vlogbrothers
channel has attracted millions and showcas-
es Greens goofy side (like smearing his
face with peanut butter) as he weighs in on
everything from Hitlers sex life to how to
stamp out bullying.
The brothers also put up Crash Course
videos accompanied by cartoonish graphics
to help older kids cram for school on the
sciences and humanities. Theyre now used
by thousands of teachers.
But until now, Greens off-the-page life
has been exclusively small screen. Does the
writer part of his brain now need to make
peace with his developing big-screen

in painting California scenes on location.
She explains: I attempt to capture the color
and beauty of the landscape in my works,
transporting the observer to these beautiful
locations. Menlo Park artist Alice Weil
also transports the viewer to quiet and
relaxed scenes, from the rolling hills and
trees of California to soothing seascapes,
some of them inspired by the beauty of
Hawaii. Ellen Howard of San Mateo nds
true enjoyment from painting the marsh-
lands and highlighting areas along the
Pacic Coast. While she strives to capture
the light as it spreads across a scene, she
also nds beauty and abundant color in still
lifes. Woodside artist Cynthia DeBenedetti
nds inspiration in all subject matters, from
local landscapes, landmarks and scenes, to
large-scale gurative work inspired by her
travels to Tibet.
Shown concurrently with this show are
paintings in all mediums by Half Moon Bay
artist and art teacher Susan Marie Johnson,
located in the Community Gallery, which is
on the lower level of the 400 building. And
in the adjacent 555 County Center build-
ings Rotunda Gallery is an exhibit of large
wood sculptures by Ruth von Jahnke Waters
of Burlingame. Waters, who often turns to
universal issues of human identity, relation-
ships and interactions for her artwork inspi-
ration, said: Exploring the human condi-
tion has been the major focus of my work
for more than 50 years and will, no doubt,
continue to absorb me.

When Bankson steers Stone and the errat-
ic, less-disciplined Fen to a mostly gentle
lakeside tribe, the Tam, they find that
females rule the social structure. Stone is
soon making copious notes of her observa-
tions and analysis of Tam culture, particular-
ly the ways of its women. Fen, shunning the
typewriter, spends his time mostly engag-
ing with the native men.
The novel is told, for the most part, by
Bankson, reecting back from a distance of
many years. But Stones voice also appears
in the form of journal entries she wrote after
she had met him and began experiencing life
among the Tam.
King, the books author, lives in Maine
and earned praise for her rst three novels.
In the well-researched Euphoria, she hits
just the right tone. Voices of British,
Aussies and Americans ring true for the peri-
od, and King brings vividly to life the dis-
tant world of South Sea island natives and
the crosshatch of cultures with Western
strangers in their midst.
Bankson, Stone and Fen may have ven-
tured to this lost world in search of keys to
primitive lives, but along the way they also
begin unlocking doors to their own lives,
psyches and fates.

the City Council plans to continue sharing
services with other cities and promoting
revenue-generating development projects.
The City Council reviewed its proposed
2014-15 budget on Monday, which includes
a total budget of $115 million with $93 mil-
lion in revenue and $74 million in expendi-
tures, said Assistant City Manager Steve
The city also has substantial assets to
fund necessary capital improvement proj-
ects and the creation of two new parks, Toler
Last year, the city was able to meet its
goal set in 2010 to have a balanced budget
and Mayor Charlie Bronitsky is condent in
the coming years.
We are fortunate that the economy has
improved and that there is a lot of develop-
ment in Foster City, both of which have
helped substantially. We have also found
ways to cut costs without sacricing the
quality of the services we deliver and we are
continuing to work to generate additional
and sustainable income, while managing
growth, and looking at ways to partner with
other cities through shared services to sta-
bilize and reduce costs, Bronitsky wrote in
an email.
The citys general fund has about $32 mil-
lion, however, $25 million of it will be
spent on employees, Toler said.
Although the proposed budget currently
outlines a $1.2 million surplus, that could
change based on labor negotiations over
the coming weeks, Toler said.
During the recession, we ended up work-
ing with labor groups to freeze salaries as
well as reduce some of the pension obliga-
tions, Toler said. All of the groups
(police, re, management staff) came up
this year so now its time for the city and
the City Council to make some decisions on
what it wants to do as it relates to employee
The discussions may not conclude prior to
the budget being voted on during a June 16
meeting, however, the city has used a 2 per-
cent place setter to account for cost-of-liv-
ing increases for subsequent years in its
ve-year nancial forecast, Toler said.
Councilman Herb Perez said the city needs
to adjust the salary portion of its budget.
Foster City has a certain quality of life
based on services and as a result of that, that
costs money. So I dont believe our
salaries are out of line with the kind of serv-
ices we get, Perez said. Were trying to
nd a way to be responsible to the con-
stituents and responsible to the employees
who provide the quality of life.
To help generate revenue, the city will
raise its master fees, such as utility and
water rates, development and permitting
fees, business license fees, development
and planning fees and others, according to a
staff report.
Even with a general 3 percent increase,
Perez said Foster Citys master fees are
lower than those of surrounding cities.
Perez said development projects within
the city such as hotels, ofce buildings and
retail space provide substantial revenue.
But the council needs to look at what con-
tinual impacts those developments have on
the city, Perez said.
Toler said a major portion of the citys
revenue in the upcoming budget is generat-
ed from developments and about $27 mil-
lion from the recent sale of its 15-acre site
at the citys center. The council will also
consider taking a portion of the money it
receives and reinvesting it to assist with
affordable housing needs, Toler said.
To help generate sales tax within the city,
the council will create a new daytime shuttle
that would help bring employees from com-
panies based in Foster City, many of whom
take public transportation, to its shopping
centers, Toler said.
The San Mateo County Transit Authority
would primarily fund this $100,000 proj-
ect, Toler said.
Another area it has found cost savings is
continuing to share fire services with
Belmont and San Mateo. The cities are also
looking at creating and sharing a new emer-
gency preparedness coordinator, Toler said.
Foster Citys proposed budget sets aside
about $11 million in capital improvement
projects, Toler said.
Similar to San Mateo and Belmont, Foster
City is also looking at owing a hefty
amount for the rehabilitation of a waste-
water treatment plant.
The proposed budget outlines about $6
million for sewer-related improvements,
Toler said.
There are some exciting improvements
accounted for in the new budget, such as the
appropriation of about $2.6 million for the
creation of the citys new Werder and
Destination parks, Toler said.
It has taken time, but the citys budget is
solid and its ve-year forecast looks prom-
ising, Toler said.
It goes to show, not only how conserva-
tive and good stewards the citys been and
the council and the staff have been in man-
aging their resources, Toler said. But its
also something that I think a lot of people
overlook in terms of the scal health of
their city as they make a decision on where
they want to live, where they want to work
and where they want to enjoy their life.
The Foster City Council will review and
vote on its 2014-15 scal year budget at a
meeting June 16. For more information

exporter called Palco International after ris-
ing in the ranks there.
Not having that degree made all the dif-
ference in the world when that company
closed, she said. I worked as an adminis-
trative assistant elsewhere and then went to
school for six months to get my general ed
done at Skyline [College]. You cant get
into a managerial role without the degree.
The NDNU graduation was interesting for
Sivy, whose brother Frank made sure she
went through with the ceremony.
It felt wonderful, she said. Its a expe-
rience. It completes a cycle and its kind of
like closure.
Learning from other students was one of
the benets of going back to school, she
said. Those with families doing night
school to complete their degrees are the
people Sivy looks up to the most, she said.
Theyre the ones I really admire, she
said. Theyre raising families and going to
school and they have to have their bache-
lors to get ahead in their professions.
The most difcult part about going back
to school is that writing essays has changed
since she was last in school, she said.
Its a different way of thinking than
when I went to school, Sivy said. You
have to back up your claims and follow
through. I did have tutors and the help was
there at Notre Dame and free.
Professors at NDNU also provided an
important mentorship for Sivy, she said.
Her favorite class was philosophy, a subject
she initially feared. Michael Rende became
her favorite teacher.
I ended up taking three classes, she
said. He (Rende) was absolutely fantastic.
He could draw things from you and you did-
nt even know it.
She looked at University of San Francisco
and San Francisco State University, but ulti-
mately chose NDNU.
When I walked on campus, I knew that
this was my campus because its a small
school, she said.
For other older adults pursuing education,
she encourages them to just go through with
getting the degree.
Do it, just do it, she said. Dont let
anything stand in the way. Dont let any
label get in the way.

Investors seemed pleased. The Dow
Jones industrial average closed up 88
Though the economy has regained
the nearly 9 million jobs lost to the
recession, more hiring is needed,
because the working-age U.S. popula-
tion has grown nearly 7 percent since
the recession began. Economists at
the liberal Economic Policy Institute
estimate that 7 million more jobs
would have been needed to keep up
with population growth.
In addition, average wages have
grown only about 2 percent a year
since the recession ended, well below
the long-run average annual growth of
about 3.5 percent.
And unemployment has fallen from a
10 percent peak in 2009 partly for an
unfortunate reason: Fewer people are
working or seeking work. The percent-
age of adults who either have a job or
are looking for one remained at a 35-
year low in May.
Yet the United States is faring far
better than most other major industrial
Overall unemployment for the 18
countries that use the euro, for exam-
ple, was 11.7 percent in April, though
some European nations, such as
Germany and Denmark, have much
lower rates. On Thursday, Europes
central bank cut interest rates and took
other extraordinary steps to try to
boost ultra-low ination, encourage
more lending and jump-start growth.
Japan is struggling to emerge from
more than a decade of sluggish growth
and deflation. And China has been
undergoing a prolonged slowdown
from explosive expansion and is at
risk of slowing too sharply.
The U.S. was incredibly aggres-
sive after the financial crisis and
Great Recession, said Daniel Drezner,
a professor of international politics at
Tufts University. Compared to Europe
in particular, we did much more.
The U.S. government approved
stimulus spending and tax cuts,
Drezner noted, while many European
nations cut spending. The Federal
Reserve slashed rates further than the
European Central Bank did and
launched bond purchases to ease long-
term loan rates. Central banks in
Japan and Europe have only recently
considered the types of unconvention-
al steps the Fed launched in 2008.
The solid U.S. hiring gains in May
might be expected to lower the unem-
ployment rate. But the two figures
come from separate surveys. The job
gains are derived from a survey of busi-
nesses, the unemployment rate from a
survey of households.
The two surveys sometimes diverge
but usually paint a similar picture over
time. For May, the survey of business-
es found a bigger job gain than the sur-
vey of households did.
Average hourly pay rose 5 cents in
May to $24.38. Thats up 2.1 percent
from 12 months ago and barely ahead
of ination, which was 2 percent.
Weak pay gains have limited
Americans ability to spend and held
back growth, because consumer spend-
ing drives about 70 percent of the
The sluggishness in wages is the
weak link that is preventing the U.S.
economy from fully expanding its
wings, said Gregory Daco, U.S. econ-
omist at Oxford Economics.
One reason pay has lagged: The jobs
added since the recession have been
more likely to be part time and in
lower-paying industries. That pattern
was evident in May: Hotels, restau-
rants and entertainment companies
added 39,000 jobs. Retailers gained
12,500, temporary services 14,300.
By contrast, construction firms
added just 6,000, manufacturers
10,000. Those industries tend to be
There are still 2.9 million fewer peo-
ple working in full-time jobs than
when the recession began. And nearly
2.5 million more are working in part-
time positions. Those trends have
eased somewhat in the past year or so.
The number of part-time workers has
fallen 500,000 in the last 12 months.
Many economists say unemploy-
ment has not fallen far enough yet for
wages to rise signicantly across the
economy. But there are some signs
that wage pressures might soon
emerge. One measure that Fed Chair
Janet Yellen has cited as reective of
the job markets health is the number
of people out of work for more than six
months. This figure reached record
highs after the recession and has
declined slowly.
The number of long-term unem-
ployed fell 78,000 to 3.37 million
last month, down from 4.4 million a
year ago. Thats still nearly three
times as many as when the recession
Some companies are starting to raise
pay to attract workers. Applied
Medical Technology, based in
Cleveland, has raised the starting wage
for its assembly and production jobs
to $10 an hour from $8.25.
Jeff Elliott, the chief nancial of-
cer, said the company wants to add 30
people to its staff of 180. But its job
advertisements are getting less
response than we used to get.
Three weeks ago, Kerry Vander Weit,
47, of Portland, Oregon, got her rst
full-time job in a year and a half. She
works in sales for a mannequin compa-
It was a great relief, Vander Weit
said, even though shes earning only
about half what she made in her previ-
ous job at the Sports Authority. Her
husband has kept his job, but theyve
bought a much smaller house and pared
other expenses in the past two years.
The U.S. economy actually shrank
in the rst three months of this year as
a blast of cold weather shut down fac-
tories and kept consumers away from
shopping malls and car dealerships.
The economy contracted at a 1 percent
annual rate, its rst decline in three

tion to live out some twisted sexual

During trial, Velasquez defense
claimed the entire incident was a

half Oct. 2 before convicting
Velasquez of kidnapping for sexual
assault, assault with the intent to sex-

The teacher was in the parking
garage at Summit Preparatory Charter
High School on Broadway around 5:15
p.m. when a man jumped from bushes
near the lot and grabbed her from
behind. He held a knife to her side and
ordered her to go to her car and climb
in. When he threatened to kill her if
she did not comply, the woman report-
ed recognizing his voice as a student.
She intentionally dropped her keys
to buy time but he pushed her to the

elbow and laid on top of her. Another
