Redwood City may reopen its downtown
fire station which has been browned out for
nearly four years due to previous budget cuts.
Fire Chief Jim Skinner is asking the City
Council to allocate a couple hundred-thou-

full-time firefighter/engineer and allowing
overtime hours equivalent to three other

WASHINGTON — The United States is
preparing to send new aid to Iraq to help
slow a violent insurgent march that is
threatening to take over the nation’s
north, officials said Wednesday. But the
Obama administration offered only tepid
support for Iraq’s beleaguered prime minis-
ter, and U.S. lawmakers openly questioned
whether he should remain in power.

Yosemite National
Park rescue caught on video
officials say a backpacker who narrowly
avoided plunging to his death from a
waterfall at Yosemite National Park was
hoisted to safety by a helicopter rescue
crew in an operation that was captured
on video.
Video of the May 28 rescue shows the
helicopter hovering over a gorge at the
base of Upper Yosemite Fall. The video
was released last week.
The backpacker is on a boulder that
park officials say he was able to scram-
ble onto after slipping and falling into
the rapids.
A rescuer who was lowered down to
the boulder is seen attaching a line. He
and the backpacker are then hoisted up.
The backpacker was treated for
hypothermia. Park officials say he
would have died if he had not been able
to get onto the boulder.
Mayor in tiff over
tossed bag of dog waste
SAN MARINO — The mayor of San

saying he should have disposed of it
Mayor Dennis Kneier tells the
Pasadena Star-News he was walking
home from a park with his wife Saturday
night in the upscale Los Angeles suburb
when they found the bag on a parkway.
He says he picked it up and tossed it
onto a walkway at the property.
Resident Philip Lao says he recog-

Wildfire sparks amazing
wedding photo in Oregon
BEND, Ore. — Awildfire that disrupt-
ed an Oregon couple’s wedding also
gave them the photograph of a lifetime.
Afire truck rolled up at Rock Spring
Ranch near Bend with sirens blaring
Saturday and the wedding party was told
to evacuate, The Oregonian reported.
The minister conducted an abbreviat-
ed ceremony. Everyone cheered and
began to evacuate to downtown Bend’s
Drake Park for the reception.
As guests headed for the cars, wedding
photographer Josh Newton took some
photos of the couple with the wildfire
raging in the background.
Michael Wolber called it “the most
beautiful ceremony either of us could
have ever imagined.” He and his wife,
April Hartley, live in Aloha and both
work at Nike Inc.
“It’s terrible to be evacuated from
your own wedding,” said Lisa Clark, a
fire information officer with the Central
Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center.
“But it’s a story for the rest of their lives
and nothing that could be duplicated.”
Water woes force big
brewers to tighten the tap
FORTWORTH, Texas — Some of the
largest brewers in the U.S. are trying
to reduce their water-to-beer ratio as
drought and wildfire threaten the water-
sheds where they draw billions of gal-
lons every year.
No independent group tracks beer-
makers’ water usage, but MillerCoors
and Anheuser-Busch both say they
have made reductions. MillerCoors
released a sustainability report
Wednesday that shows it has cut its
water use by 9.2 percent from 2012.
“Water is just critical to us,” Kim
Marotta, the Chicago-based compa-
ny’s sustainability chief, told The
Associated Press in a telephone inter-
view. “Looking ahead, we needed to
find a way to brew more beer but use
less water. ”
MillerCoors’ water-saving effort —
focused in Texas, California and
Colorado — involves using sensors to
release just enough water for irriga-
tion, planting native grass to reduce
erosion and runoff and keeping a close
eye on leaky machinery in its brew-

The woman whose criminal to-do list
helped convict her of attempting to kill
her estranged husband in the couple’s
Redwood City business was sane at the
time she lured him to the office with a fake
client, dressed herself in bubble wrap and
stabbed him twice, a jury decided.
Jurors on Wednesday afternoon rejected
Laura Jean Wenke’s insanity plea which
means the 53-year-old Los Altos woman
will be imprisoned rather than treated at a
state mental facility for at least 180 days.
The same jury deliberated four hours
before convicting Wenke June 3 of pre-
meditated attempted murder, assault with a
deadly weapon, assault with a stun gun,
domestic violence and inflicting great
bodily injury. She is facing 14 to 15 years
to life in prison when sentenced Aug. 1 for
the Sept. 15, 2011, attack on her husband,
Randy Wenke.
“We are very grateful
to the jury for seeing
through the defendant’s
dual effort both in the
guilt phase and the sani-
ty phase to use a psychi-
atric defense that was
without foundation,”
said District Attorney
Steve Wagstaffe.
Wenke drew her husband to the Laurel
Street office by setting up a meeting
between him and a fake potential client.
She drove a truck to the business, parking
it in front of the windows, and inside asked
her husband to look at a computer screen
ostensibly to be in a better position to
Wenke stabbed her husband twice, slic-
ing a 4-inch gash across the back of his
neck and puncturing his lung. A stun gun
was at the scene but it is unclear if she
actually used it. After her arrest, Wenke
was found to have bubble wrap underneath
her mechanic’s jumpsuit and in her purse a
handwritten to-do list with items related to
removing batteries from the smoke alarms
so that she could burn down the building,
disposing of evidence and framing some-
one else. Inside her vehicle were three gal-
lons of highly flammable linseed oil and a
bucket of rags.
Prosecutor Tricia Povah said that Wenke
might have some anxiety and bipolar dis-
order but that she was motivated by a $2
million life insurance policy and hatred of
her husband with whom she was in the
midst of an acrimonious divorce and cus-
tody battle.
During trial, defense attorney Geoff Carr
did not dispute Wenke stabbed her husband
but said it is unproven if the act was pre-
meditated and argued that she would be bet-
ter financially by his living because the
couple’s business pulled in $6 million to
$8 million annually at peak times.
Carr argued that his client had mental ill-
ness issues including post-traumatic stress
disorder exacerbated by misdiagnosis and
wrong medication that left her with bouts
of amnesia among other symptoms.
Carr could not be reached for comment
on the verdict.
Wenke remains in custody without bail.

Vegetation fire at
school quickly extinguished
Belmont firefighters extinguished a vege-
tation fire at Nesbit Elementary School in
about five minutes Tuesday afternoon.
At approximately 3:20 p.m., firefighters
from Station 14 were driving back to their
station when they saw smoke coming from
the school. When they arrived, they saw the
fire to the rear of the school district mainte-
nance garage on the west side of the school,
according to police.
The fire at one point extended 20 feet into
the trees bordering an adjacent apartment
complex and included a large amount of pine
needles, according to police.
The cause of the fire is undetermined, but
is classified as human-caused as no other
sources of ignition were found, according to
Witnesses reported smelling something
burning several hours before the fire broke
out. The area is a popular spot for youth to

Priest attacked in Burlingame
Apriest at St. Catherine of Siena Catholic
Church in Burlingame was attacked by a

At approximately 9:22 a.m., the victim,
who lives at the church, asked a man to
leave the private grounds of the church
property as he appeared to be getting ready
to urinate on a tree. The man told the victim
him he had been given permission to
smoke. The victim, who was not dressed in
his clerical clothing, told the man he could
not smoke and repeated that he needed to
leave. The man quickly approached the vic-
tim who retreated further into church
grounds. Fearing for his safety, he grabbed
a broom and the suspect punched the victim
and knocked him to the ground, according
to police.
At approximately 11:47 a.m., an officer
contacted a man matching the description
of the suspect in the area of California Drive
and Rhinette Avenue in Burlingame. The
man was detained and positively identified
by the victim. Officers determined the sus-

Sophie Tjader, 5, has gotten her face painted every year since she was 2.
By Kerry Chan
In the last 80 years, the San Mateo County
Fair has moved beyond horse races, spinning
teacup rides, flower exhibits and corn dogs —
it still draws thousands of people but is trying
to emphasize the area’s growing interest in
This year, fair organizers launched a smart-
phone app that helps fair goers navigate their
visit. It has a map, list of food vendors, per-
formance times and daily pig race schedules.
The fair expanded the technology division
to feature robotic demonstrations and gives
the kids hands-on experience with industrial
art and technical projects. They get to put giz-
mos together or deconstruct retired electron-
ics while interacting and socializing with
high school volunteers.
“The games and projects give an experience
that is beyond riding rides,” said Gabriel
Colaluca, department head of the fair’s tech-
nology division.
Even with the modern enhancements, many
still prefer to engage with the old fair
favorites. Jennifer Aguilera, 20, a student at
College of San Mateo, said the main attrac-
tion for her is the petting zoo.
“I always wanted to be a vet and this is the
one place that I get to experience being with
these animals,” said Aguilera.
Maura Rosie, a handler in the fair’s live-
stock division, said farm animals and young
livestock are main staples of a traditional
county fair.
Burlingame residents Loretta Tripp and her
husband used to go to fair 30 years ago with
their children and recall a time when horse
races were one of the main attractions at the
“We used to go to the horse races after the
kids were done with the rides,” said Tripp.
The race track was demolished in 2008 to
make way for new housing, office and retail
“I remembered it used to be a little seedy,
not a place I would want my children to roam
around freely but now it’s more refined and
there is so much more for the kids today,” said
Tripp, who recently took her grandchildren.
Fair organizers said it is their mission to
maintain tradition but also push the genre to
keep the new generation engaged. You don’t
want to take away the petting zoos or the pig
race, but you can add technology, said organ-
Fair organizers said they have to reinvent
themselves constantly because consumer
demands are changing so quickly.
To keep up with healthy trends, the fair held
their first Agri-Tourism exhibit which features
five local farms and a class on how to cook
vegetables that grow locally in San Mateo
There are educational booths funded by the
USDA to promote healthy eating and every
food vendor at the fair now offers at least one
healthy food option that is approved by the
San Mateo department of public health.
San Mateo native, Brian Birkett, 36, said
although the gesture is appreciated, he prefers
to indulge in traditional fair foods such as
fried Twinkies, barbecued ribs and corn on the
cob with melted butter.
“You go and you have a little treat and that
treat takes you back to what it was like going
to the fair 20 years ago,” said Birkett.
It is the intent to maintain popular tradi-
tions yet always stay ahead of the curve, said
Fair Manager Matt Cranford. As the county
fair evolves, there will be new attractions tai-
lored for the generation it serves. Freak Out, a
new ride that flies passengers more than 40
feet in the air, grilled tofu dogs, technology
exhibits and a smartphone app are the newest
trends among time honored traditions like
pony rides, funnel cakes and Ferris wheels.
Every year, San Mateo resident Robert
Tjader and his wife take their 5-year-old
daughter Adrian to the fair for a traditional
pony ride, carousal ride and face paint.
“Adrian was on the some horse that she rode
last year, it was named Sydney,” said Tjader.
For Tjader, the memories his family creates
and the sense of community is what draws him
to the fair each year.
“I think coming to the fair is good for the
community and good for our family to get out
and about,” said Tjader, “but you will not be
seeing me eat a grilled tofu dog unless I’m in
a dire situation.”
The San Mateo County fair operates from
June 7 to 14. For more tickets or more infor-
mation go to www.sanmateocountyfair.com.

SACRAMENTO — As billions of dollars in
unexpected tax revenue pour into California,
Democratic lawmakers have proposed all
kinds of ways to distribute the windfall after
years of recession-era budget cuts.
Just don’t call it spending. In recent weeks,
Democrats have been using a more palatable
and fiscally responsible term to characterize
their individual priorities.
Instead of spending the taxpayer surplus,
they want to invest it.
Last week, Assemblywoman Nancy
Skinner, D-Berkeley, opened up a joint leg-
islative budget committee hearing by saying
she hopes the state will make “meaningful
and strategic investments in early and higher
education, in health care access and closing
that opportunity gap.”
Senate President Pro Tem Darrell
Steinberg, D- Sacramento, has said in recent
weeks that he would like to “make sure that
there is room left for some investment to
meet the needs of the peo-
Shortly after being
sworn in as Assembly
speaker last month, San
Diego Democrat Toni
Atkins said she wanted to
help craft a budget that
“expands opportunity by
making smart invest-
Webster’s dictionary
defines investment as “the outlay of money,
usually for income or profit.” But Democratic
lawmakers are framing their spending pro-
posals for welfare, health care, child care, edu-
cation and preschool for low-income families
as a human investment. They say it will pay
off with a more productive workforce and
higher future tax revenue for the state.
Jessica Levinson, a professor at Loyola
Law School in Los Angeles, described
Democrats’ replacing the word “spending”
with “investment” as a rhetorical device to
make their budget proposals more acceptable.

A 49-year-old South San Francisco
woman who participated in a brutal 2008
crowbar attack that left a 78-year-old Daly
City woman blinded was sentenced
Wednesday to six months in jail for resi-
dential burglary.
Joann Rivera Ortiz had a four-year prison
plea offer on the table for the last two years
but in January Judge Richard Livermore
reduced the term to six months in jail which
led her to accept.
On Wednesday, Ortiz was also placed on
five years supervised probation and ordered
to pay $283,566 restitution for the
woman’s medical bills. She has nine days
credit against the six-month term.
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe was
disappointed in the case’s resolution.
“We felt the sentence was less than we
wanted,” Wagstaffe said.
Ortiz is not accused of
personally assaulting the
victim in the case but
prosecutors say she tried
luring her away from
home so accomplices
could burglarize it. She
was also tied to a Pacifica
burglary the previous
In the assault case,

Trejo has pleaded not guilty to all

Big changes in Republican
leadership after Cantor loss
By David Espo
WASHINGTON — Repudiated at the polls,
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor
announced Wednesday that he will resign
his leadership post at the end of next
month, clearing the way for a potentially
disruptive Republican shake-up just before
midterm elections with control of Congress
at stake.
Cantor informed fellow Republicans of
his intentions at an emotional closed-door
meeting, then made his public announce-
ment at a news conference where he
appeared upbeat, all less than 24 hours after
losing Virginia’s GOP primary election to
David Brat, a little-known and underfunded
rival backed by tea party groups.
Lawmakers in both parties said Cantor’s
defeat and the prospect of a change within
the Republican high command probably
signal the demise of immigration legisla-
tion along the lines President Barack
Obama is seeking and will also have a neg-
ative impact on the balance of his second-
term agenda.

Oregon shooting suspect
called aspiring serviceman
TROUTDALE, Ore. — A 15-year-old boy
accused of killing a fellow freshman in a
high school locker room was heavily armed
with an assault rifle, handgun and knife that
police said Wednesday had been taken from
a secured area at his family home.
The details were released as police provid-
ed a more detailed account of the violence on
Tuesday at Reynolds High School in
Troutdale, and a portrait emerged of 15-year-
old suspect Jared Michael Padgett as a
devout Mormon and aspiring serviceman.
Authorities said an autopsy confirmed that
Padgett had died in a school bathroom of a
self-inflicted gunshot wound after a brief
exchange of gunfire with arriving officers.
However, no link has been discovered
between Padgett and 14-year-old victim
Emilio Hoffman, leaving police unsure if
the shooter was targeting someone in par-
ticular or had launched a random attack.
In Hill testimony, Hagel
defends Bergdahl trade
WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary
Chuck Hagel delivered an aggressive
defense Wednesday of the secret prisoner
exchange of five Taliban detainees for a
U.S. soldier, telling Congress that the
risks were too great and the situation too
uncertain for the administration to tell
lawmakers about the plan.
In a nearly five-hour Capitol Hill hearing
that was at times contentious, House mem-
bers accused Hagel and the White House of
not trusting them enough to follow the law
and fill them in on the decision to exchange
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five detainees at the
U.S. facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
An equally combative Hagel said the deal
provided “the best possibility that we had to
get him out, and we were concerned we
might lose it.”
House considers bill
to waive school meal rules
WASHINGTON — The House considered
legislation on Wednesday that would allow
some schools to opt out of healthier meal
standards — a proposal that has drawn a
veto threat from the White House.
The GOP spending bill on the House floor
would allow schools to waive the school
lunch and breakfast standards championed
by first lady Michelle Obama for the next
school year if they lost money on meal pro-
grams over a six-month period.
In a statement threatening a veto, the
White House said Tuesday that the bill would

SAN DIEGO — Unaccompanied children
arrested by U.S. border authorities are
packed in frigid cells and sleep on hard
floors without enough food or medical care,
advocacy groups said in a complaint
Wednesday that alleges widespread abuses
amid a surge of illegal crossings by young
immigrants from strife-torn Central
American countries.
The Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project
and four other groups produced 116 allega-
tions of abuse of children who were in
Customs and Border Protection custody.
They said more than 80 percent received
inadequate food and water, about half were
denied medical care, and about one of every
four was physically abused.
A13-year-old boy said he was threatened
by an official with a metal rod and was later
sexually molested while in custody, a 14-
year-old girl reported her asthma inhaler was
confiscated, and a 14-year-old boy was
unable to sleep for five days because the
lights were always on. A 16-year-old boy
said an official told him, “You are in my
country now, and we are going to bury you in
a hole.”
The allegations described in the adminis-
trative complaint to the Department of
Homeland Security were based on interviews
with the children from around March to May.
The complaint doesn’t provide dates of the
alleged abuse, but authors said much of it
occurred over the last year. The locations are
not listed because, the authors said, the chil-
dren were frequently shuttled around and did-
n’t know where they were.
The children were identified only by ini-
tials in a 25-page version of the complaint
that was made public but the authors said
they provided names and other biographical
information to the Homeland Security’s
inspector general and office civil rights and
civil liberties. They urged the department to
investigate the complaints, punish any
wrongdoing and make its findings public.
Customs and Border Protection said in a
statement that it does not tolerate miscon-
duct and was providing food, medical care
and other basic services under constant
supervision, while working to transfer chil-
dren to the Department of Health and Human
Services within 72 hours, as required by law.

WASHINGTON — The Senate acted
Wednesday to help thousands of military
veterans enduring long wait times for VA
medical care, as the FBI revealed it has
opened a criminal investigation into a
Veterans Affairs Department reeling from
allegations of falsified records and inappro-
priate scheduling practices.
The Senate bill, approved 93-3, makes it
easier for veterans who have encountered
delays getting initial visits to receive VA-
paid treatment from local doctors instead.
The measure closely resembles a bill
approved unanimously Tuesday in the
House, prompting optimism among law-
makers from both parties that a compromise
version could be on its way soon to
President Barack Obama for his signature.
The White House said Wednesday that
Obama supports the Senate bill.
The Senate bill would authorize about $35
billion over three years to pay for outside
care for veterans, as well as hire hundreds of
doctors and nurses and lease 26 new health
facilities in 17 states and Puerto Rico. The
House bill would spend about $620 million
over the same period.
The Veterans Affairs Department released
an audit this week showing that more than
57,000 veterans have had to wait at least
three months for initial appointments.
Another 64,000 veterans who asked for
appointments over the past decade never
got them.
“The cost of war does not end when the
last shots are fired and the last missiles are
launched,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.,
chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs
Committee. “The cost of war continues until
the last veteran receives the care and the
benefits that he or she is entitled to and has
earned on the battlefield.”
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who drafted
the bill with Sanders, called the bill “a
beginning — not an end — to the efforts
that must be taken” to address the crisis
affecting veterans’ health care.
While the legislation will not solve all
the VA’s problems, it should “spark long-
overdue change — from the top down — in
order to ensure our veterans are getting the
care and support they expect and deserve,”
said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.
Support for the bill was not unanimous.
Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions and other
Republicans complained that the measure
was a “blank check” to spend billions of
dollars with little or no way to rein it in.
“Make no mistake: This is an emergency, ”
McCain retorted.
Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., supported the
bill, but said “money is not the problem” at
the VA. “It’s management and accountabili-
ty and honesty in treating the veterans” that
are needed to improve care for veterans,
Coburn said.

WASHINGTON — Insurers want to change
President Barack Obama’s health care law to
provide financial assistance for people buy-
ing bare-bones coverage. That would entice
the healthy and the young, the industry says,
holding down premiums.
So-called catastrophic plans are currently
not eligible for the law’s subsidies, and only
2 percent of the 8 million consumers who
signed up this year picked one. Subsidies
bring down the cost of monthly premiums.
The proposed change is part of a package
of recommendations that America’s Health
Insurance Plans, the main industry trade
group released Wednesday. Others address
how to smooth transitions for consumers
who switch insurance companies, as well as
making it easier for patients to find out
which hospitals and doctors are in particular
plans and whether their medications are cov-
“What is crucial for public policy leaders
is to balance access and affordability,” said
Karen Ignagni, head of the trade group.
“Unless people feel that coverage is afford-
able, they won’t participate in the system.”
Adults ages 18-34, the
health care law’s most
coveted demographic, are
under-represented among
those enrolled for subsi-
dized private insurance
this year. Insurers are cur-
rently filing their pro-
posed premiums for 2015,
and increases of 10 per-
cent or more are antici-
pated. Nonetheless, the new state insurance
exchanges are poised to grow, with more car-
riers entering the market to compete for
Given the polarized politics of health care
in Washington it’s unclear how the indus-
try’s latest proposal might advance. It might
get a chance if Republicans in Congress
abandon their crusade to repeal Obama’s law
and start focusing on making changes to
individual components.
The proposal could also encounter opposi-
tion from consumer groups, which take a dim
view of catastrophic plans. Some consumer
organizations have instead called for reduc-
ing out-of-pocket costs borne by consumers
who buy a midlevel silver plan, the pick of
65 percent of those signed up this year.

U-T San Diego
Latinos and African-Americans make up a
majority of the 6 million students in
California’s public schools. Many are good
to excellent students.
But a sizable chunk of these students,
often those from poor families where
English isn’t spoken in the home, struggle
in school. Gov. Jerry Brown won approval
for a change in the state’s basic education
funding formula last year with the argument
that California’s future prosperity depends
considerably on getting these students the
help they need to rise to academic chal-
lenges and then go on to productive lives.
Brown’s argument makes sense. And it
provides the crucially important context
showing why all Californians should care
about a Los Angeles Superior Court judge’s
landmark ruling Tuesday in the Vergara vs.
California lawsuit. Judge Rolf Treu found
that state laws giving teachers strong life-
time employment protections after just two
years on the job had produced a school sys-
tem so hostile to minority students that it
is comparable to the unequal treatment
black students faced before the U.S.
Supreme Court’s historic 1954 ruling in
Brown vs. Board of Education forced
schools to integrate.
Treu wrote that the impact of incompe-
tent teachers being “disproportionately ...
in schools serving predominantly low-
income and minority students” was so
severe it “shocks the conscience.”
There will be far more legal fighting
before Treu’s ruling takes effect. The judge
stayed his ruling pending appeal. There are
experts without an ideological ax to grind
who think that between the power of
employment laws and the absence of
explicit anti-minority state policies, it is
problematic for courts to frame what
California is doing as an abrogation of stu-
dents’ civil rights.
But even if Treu’s ruling is tossed, its
powerful language — combined with the
runoff for state superintendent of public
instruction between incumbent Tom
Torlakson, fan of the state status quo, and
reformer Marshall Tuck — makes it likely
that Californians finally will have the
debate we need about how our public educa-
tion system works.
Because of the wealth and clout of the
California Teachers Association and the
California Federation of Teachers, the sys-
tem routinely leads to veteran teachers
clustering at whiter schools in more afflu-
ent communities. As Treu noted, the least
competent teachers tend to cluster at strug-
gling schools in poor neighborhoods.
Many of these ineffective teachers don’t
even teach the subject in which they were
trained; a stunning California Watch inves-
tigation found that to be the case with 16
percent of teachers at schools that were
mostly low-income and Latino.
The CTAand the CFT will argue that job
protections are essential because of capri-
cious school bureaucrats. They will say the
major problem with California schools is
inadequate funding, not inadequate teach-
ers. They will depict reformers who focus
on teacher competence — a group that
includes President Barack Obama — as
stooges serving a shadowy corporate con-
spiracy to destroy middle-class jobs. And
they will continue their increasingly open
habit of suggesting large numbers of stu-
dents are simply beyond help.
But nothing they say can change the
massive evidence presented at the Vergara
trial showing the difficulty that districts
have in firing bad teachers, and the likeli-
hood that these teachers will end up at
schools where students are most in need of
America is still at war
Every morning I look forward to reading
the Daily Journal. It allows me to be aware
of local news. And today was no different.
The front page had a story about a family
forming a ’80s rock band. Cute story. Front
page. I slowly turn the paper and read about
Eric Cantor’s defeat and the surplus of
money to local cities. And then pages 34
and 35, titled “World.” On page 34, there is
an article about militants overrunning
Mosul, a city central to the stability of Iraq,
where many brave men and women fought
and died to bring freedom to millions in a
war poorly managed by politicians. On
Page 35, an article about five American ser-
vicemembers killed by friendly fire in
Afghanistan. I know the Daily Journal
focuses on local news, but losing Mosul
and having five American servicemembers
killed should affect every American. It just
shows how removed Americans are from the
war today; how we have forgotten the brave
troops in harm’s way. Americans died to
free Mosul and it is back in the hands of
militants. Five more young men are dead
and five more families are grieving. It
seems true: America is not at war — America
is at the shopping mall. My thoughts are
with the families of the five brave men in
uniform; they will not be forgotten.

Bay Bridge problems
The article “Report: Caltrans overrode
worries about Bay Bridge” that appeared in
the June 9 edition of the Daily Journal
prompted me to express my dismay with the
manner in which Caltrans has addressed the
many problems with the new bridge span.
Cost overruns, rusting bolts, shoddy weld-
ing, misaligned road plates and now it is
revealed that the Chinese company that
built the tower and road had no bridge build-
ing experience. In addition, the article
revealed that a Caltrans chief executive
spent $300,000 going to Shanghai and
stayed in a $470 per night hotel. All of the
problems encountered with the building of
this bridge has resulted in there being no
consequences for those responsible for what
I consider a project that was a total fiasco
from the beginning. As an elected official, I
cannot imagine myself or my colleagues in
neighboring cities being allowed to govern
in such a manner without being held
accountable for our actions.

Veterans’ care
General Shinseki’s departure is unlike-
ly to solve Veteran Affair’s broader prob-
lems — a bloated bureaucracy that has
been taught, over time, to hide its prob-
lems from Washington.
The festering problem predates the Obama
administration. No decisive action has been
taken and President Obama continues to
remain distant and aloof, periodically feign-
ing outrage when the media reports frustrat-
ing delays encountered by veterans desper-
ately seeking help. Even the high suicide
rate of returning soldiers, haunted by the
demons of war, failed to precipitate much
action. Layers of management grew in pro-
portion to the growing patient load — it
currently stands at a staggering 12-level
chain of command all the way to the bot-
tom, where the schedulers are assigned the
critical tasks of matching veterans with the
medical help they are seeking. That’s where
the books were cooked — many appoint-
ments were simply deleted. Bonuses were
awarded if the numbers looked good. The few
employees burdened with a moral con-
science were threatened with dismissal.
This follows President Obama’s war on
whistle-blowers, including the New York
Times reporter, James Risen. Senior offi-
cials at VAhad little interest in their subor-
dinate’s failings and felt safe behind the
shield of “plausible deniability.” Other gov-
ernment departments suffer from the same
inertia problems, most notably the depart-
ment of Homeland Security and the Defense
Intelligence Agency. What is also largely
ignored is the failure to hold accountable
those high government officials who made
hasty decisions to send these young men
and women to suffer the horrors of war.

So what’s the point of having it at the
county fair?
The annual San Mateo County Fair is a
time to check one’s nutritional conscious at
the gate, or at least before one gets to the
midway, and put heavy thought into which
deliverers of
goodness and
calories are on
the menu that
day. The 80th
annual fair hap-
pening this
week should be
no different.
Will it be the
Twinkies and
Oreos? Perhaps
the funnel cake.
You can’t have fair food without a funnel
cake. Double up on the powdered sugar and
whipped cream. Maybe chocolate sauce. If
you can’t decide, consider it an excuse to
come back another day and sample some
more delicacies before settling in for the pig
races or a turn on those weird massage
The fair is a time to eat food you would
likely never order, ingest or justify on any
other day or during many other events. Few
will opt for deep-fried bacon or double-
smothered whatever on a random Tuesday.
Puffs and fritters and caramely deliciousness
doesn’t always fly on those days you spent
at the gym. But go to the fair and all bets are
off. One needs their strength if they’re
going to claim victory throwing darts at
balloons or heaving ping pong balls into

But this year, along with all who pray to
the Church of the Deep Fat Fryer, those
unwilling to give their cholesterol and
waistline a mini-vacation at the San Mateo
County Event Center need no longer sneak
in their own tofu dogs and veggie chips for
sustenance. Using a federal nutrition grant
to help people make healthy food and exer-
cise choices, the San Mateo County Health
System and the fair paired up to offer a dif-
ferent type of fair fare. An announcement of
the new options say they now exist at “a
venue not typically known for its healthy
food selection.”
See? Even they know the fair is not the
place one traditionally goes for a spirulina
smoothie followed by a wheatgrass chaser.
This isn’t spin class, people. This is the fair
and chances are when all those spinning
rides do their nauseous damage, fairgoers
would prefer to revisit an earlier milkshake
or cheesecake on a stick rather than any-
thing fat free, gluten free or holding on to
even a crumb of vitamins.
But to be fair — pun very well intended,
thank you — not everybody heading out to
view the winners of the table decorating cat-
egory or watch a metal hair band rock out
believes the annual ode to agriculture and
crafts is an excuse to dive head first into
gluttony. For those seeking wellness, the
fair requires all vendors this year to include a
healthy option meeting nutritional criteria
for calories, portion size and use of fruit and
vegetables. The county said attendees can
also indulge themselves with cooking
demos and recipes featuring five county-
grown vegetables: artichokes, fava beans,
leeks, peas and Brussels sprouts.
Not sure about the peas and beans, but a
stick of Brussels sprouts doesn’t sound half
bad. At least if its fried and drizzled with bal-

NEW YORK — The stock market
fell back from record levels
Wednesday because of a weaker fore-
cast for global growth and concerns
about airline profits.
Delta Air Lines and other carriers
fell after Germany’s Lufthansa warned
of smaller profits. Boeing slid after
analysts said that most of the good
news about the plane maker was
already priced into the stock.
Stocks opened lower after the World
Bank predicted weaker global growth
this year, citing a tough winter in
America and the political crisis in
Ukraine. The bank said late Tuesday
that it expects the world economy to
grow 2.8 percent this year instead of
the 3.2 percent it predicted in
The report was a reality check for
investors who had pushed major stock
indexes to all-time highs this week
amid optimism that the U.S. economy
was strengthening. Stronger growth
should translate into higher revenues
and better results for U.S. companies.
Stocks “were going up so much in
the last few days that they were due for
a little breather,” said Brad Sorensen,
director of market and sector research
at Charles Schwab.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
fell 6.90 points, or 0.4 percent, to
1,943.89. The index had closed at a
record of 1,951.27 on Monday. The
Dow Jones industrial average dropped
102.04 points, or 0.6 percent, to
16, 843. 88. The Nasdaq composite
slipped 6.07 points, or 0.1 percent,
to 4,331.93.
On Wednesday, airline stocks were
among the big losers after Lufthansa
warned of smaller profits caused by
weaker passenger demand. Lufthansa
AG cut its forecast for 2014 and 2015
operating income due to the weaker
demand and strikes, among other rea-
sons. Delta dropped $1.21, or 3 per-
cent, to $40.71, making it the sec-
ond-biggest loser among S&P 500
Still, Delta’s stock is up 48 percent
this year, the most of any U.S. carrier.
United Continental fell $2.50, or 5
percent, to $45.26 and American
Airlines slid $1.37, or 3 percent, to
Boeing was another big decliner.
The plane maker’s stock fell $3.15,
or 2.3 percent, to $134.10 after ana-
lysts at RBC said that after three years
of record orders and with no new
planes in the pipeline, the good news
for Boeing is “already out there.”
Despite Wednesday’s setback, the
S&P 500 has been on a slow and
steady climb since April and is now up
5.2 percent for the year. In recent
weeks, encouraging economic reports
on hiring have bolstered optimism
that growth will accelerate.
The rally in stocks should continue
this year as the economy strengthens,
said James Liu, global market strate-
gist at JPMorgan Funds. In the last
month, stock gains have been led by
the technology and consumer discre-
tionary sectors, which should benefit
more from stronger growth. This
move “is going to be what drives the
market further along,” Liu said.
Still, others believe that stock
investors need to have more modest
expectations for stock returns after
last year’s big gains when the S&P
500 surged almost 30 percent. Stock
valuations have already risen signifi-
cantly and, after years of cost-cut-
ting, companies may struggle to
boost profit margins unless economic
growth picks up significantly, said
John Toohey, head of equities at
USAA, a financial services company.
“Margins are high, so really how
much margin expansion is left?,” said
In government bond trading, bonds
gained as stocks fell. The yield on the
10-year Treasury note, which moves
inversely to its price, dropped to 2.64
percent from 2.65 percent on Tuesday.
Stocks fall as World Bank cuts growth outlook
By Steve Rothwell
NEWYORK — Soccer fans will focus
on Brazil and the start of the World Cup
Thursday, but investors have been
entranced by that nation’s stock market
for months.
Brazil has company. From Sao Paulo
to Mumbai, investors are regaining
their faith in emerging markets this
It’s a big shift from 2013, when
investment in those markets dried up
because of worries about their slowing
economic growth. It got so tough that
five big developing markets — Brazil,
South Africa, India, Indonesia and
Turkey — were dubbed the “Fragile Five”
by analysts at Morgan Stanley.
Now those countries are much more
appealing to investors. Some have
taken actions to strengthen their
economies. Others have gone through
political changes that have bolstered
investor confidence. At the same time,
slower growth in the U.S. has made
investing overseas more alluring.
“These countries have done some
homework to reduce their fragilities,”
says Jorge Mariscal, chief investment
officer for emerging markets at UBS
Wealth Management. “They have helped
themselves a bit.”
The “Fragile Five” raised interest rates
to draw investors’ cash back into their
countries. India, for example, lifted its
rate from 7.25 percent in September to 8
percent in March; Brazil hiked rates
from 7.5 percent in May of last year to
their current level of 11 percent.
Higher interest rates are appealing to
investors in the U.S., where the Federal
Reserve has held its benchmark lending
rate at close to zero for more than five
years, and where bond yields remain low.
In India, the government has also
raised duties on gold. The metal is India’s
second-biggest import behind oil, and
purchases have soared in recent years as
incomes have risen there. The increased
buying has sped up the flow of money
out of the country, and weakened its cur-
Politics are also playing a role.
Last month, Narendra Modi and the
Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party
notched the most decisive Indian elec-
tion victory in three decades. Modi mar-
keted himself as a leader capable of shak-
ing the nation from its economic slum-
ber, and his clear win should allow him
to reform the economy.
Brazil, other markets are no longer ‘Fragile Five’
Alibaba’s first U.S. presence 11 Main debuts
NEWYORK — China’s largest e-commerce company
is making its first appearance in the U.S. with the debut
of 11Main.com, an invite-only online marketplace that
showcases small business retailers.
Industry watchers will be paying close attention
because 11 Main is owned by Alibaba, the e-commerce
giant in China that filed for an initial public offering in
the U.S. in May. Bigger than Amazon and eBay com-
bined, Alibaba had no U.S. e-commerce presence until
Forrester analyst Sucharita Mulpuru believes Alibaba
won’t find it easy to break into the crowded online
shopping industry.
“U.S. e-commerce is crowded and relies on high mar-
keting expenses to rise above the clutter,” she said.
“The hope is high. We’ll see if they live up to expecta-
tions. ”
For now, Alibaba is starting small with 11 Main,
based in San Mateo, California. The site, which debuts
Wednesday in a beta phase, will feature “hundreds of
thousands” of products from 1,000 to 2,000 upscale
specialty shops and boutiques around the country that
were vetted by 11 Main.
11 Main is going live just as Alibaba prepares to go
public. Although it’s not well-known in the United
States, Alibaba is a powerhouse that helped drive the
rise of e-commerce in China, a transformation that has
given millions of households greater access to clothes,
books and consumer electronics in a society that in the
1980s still required ration tickets for some supermarket
The 15-year-old company has navigated technical and
financial challenges and a battle with eBay Inc. to
become the world’s biggest online bazaar and is now
planning to sell stock in the U.S. Analysts say its ini-
tial public offering — planned for later this year— could
raise up to $20 billion.
Tweet self-propagates through TweetDeck
NEWYORK — Atweet containing computer code has
started propagating itself through Twitter by taking
advantage of a security flaw in Twitter’s TweetDeck
In response, Twitter shut down the application’s
access to tweets.
The tweet is automatically “retweeted,” or sent out
again, when processed by TweetDeck. Affected tweeters
saw pop-up windows on their screens. The tweet was
retweeted tens of thousands of times Wednesday.
Twitter, which owns TweetDeck, initially told
TweetDeck users to log out and log back in. When that
proved ineffective, it shut down the application’s access
to tweets.
It’s not the first time tweets containing JavaScript
code have self-propagated through security holes in
Twitter. The last major outbreak was in 2010.

here will be two key questions that
will be asked ad nauseum over the
next few weeks with the kickoff
today of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil: who
will win the World Cup and how will the
Americans do?
Let’s answer the “who will win” question
first. The easy answer is, who knows? There
is no athletic tournament in the world more
unpredictable than the World Cup because
soccer can be the most maddening of sports.
The best team doesn’t always win on any
given day and upsets are the norm, not the
exception, when it comes to the World Cup.
While that may be the easiest answer, the
best response may be Brazil. After seeing
the Canarinho knocked out in the quarterfi-
nals in both 2006 and
2010, the Brazilians are
the odds-on favorites to
win their sixth World
Cup title.
Everything is going
Brazil’s way right now.
It is hosting the event
and past history sug-
gests the host country
always plays well.
There is also the fact
that no European team
has won a World Cup in
the Americas — neither
Mexico in 1986, the United States in 1994
nor any time the Cup has been hosted by a
South American country. Adding to the
European chore will be the heat and humidity
in Brazil, which could wear down the
Secondly, Brazil is coming off a win in
last summer’s Confederations Cup — which
serves as a dry run for the World Cup. Brazil
dismantled defending World Cup champion
Spain 3-0 a year ago to all but cement their
status as the front-runner for the 2014 Cup.
Third, Brazil boasts one of the best play-
ers in the world in Neymar and this could be
his coming out party.
Not that it would be easy. In my break-
down, I have Brazil winning Group Aand

NEW YORK — The champagne
the Los Angeles Kings had ready
for a coronation stayed in boxes.
The New York Rangers suddenly
have some life in the Stanley Cup
Henrik Lundqvist made 40 saves
and had the Madison Square Garden
crowd chanting his name in the
Rangers’ 2-1 victory in Game 4
that kept the Kings from a sweep
on Wednesday night.
Benoit Pouliot and Martin St.
Louis each scored for the Rangers.
Los Angeles leads the series 3-1
and will get its second shot to
claim the Cup for the second time
in three years Friday night at
“We wanted to close it out
tonight and we weren’t able to do
it,” Kings forward Anze Kopitar
said. “Now we have a desperate
team coming into our building.”
Los Angeles hoped to become
the first team since 1998 to com-
plete a sweep in the finals. The
Rangers will try to be the second
team to erase a 3-0 hole in the
finals and go on to win the Cup.

Based on Brad Degnan’s perform-
ance Wednesday, it would seem like
the San Carlos Joe DiMaggio slug-
ger does not like to DH.
San Carlos remained unbeaten
through six games this season with a
7-1 win over the Barbarians of San
Francisco, and Degnan was the driv-
ing force. After starting the game as
the team’s designated hitter, Degnan
was moved into center field follow-
ing his first at-bat in which he rolled
a harmless groundout to second base.
The sweet-swinging Degnan
ultimately went 2 for 4 with a dou-
ble and home run. This on the
heels of hitting for the cycle over
two games Sunday in a double-
header sweep of Burlingame.
“He just loves to swing,” San
Carlos manager Brian Ramsey said.
Degnan actually requested to serve
as the team’s designated hitter
Wednesday, but an injury to starting
left fielder Conner Sick forced Ramsey
to reconfigure his defense after the first
inning. And with San Carlos holding a
1-0 advantage through three innings,
Degnan emerged as a force both sides
of the ball.

For the first time in Scott Pickler’s 17-
year managerial career in the Cape Cod
League, his Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox had
no Stanford players on its opening day ros-
While the fact is something of a shocker,
former Stanford coach Dave Nakama — now
the manager at San Jose State — still has
one of his guys in the fray with Spartans
outfielder Andre Mercurio.
A former Serra High School standout,
Mercurio is coming off a junior season in
which he served as San Jose State’s primary
leadoff hitter. Battling through a wrist
injury which cost him 10 games in the early
season, the left-handed hitting speedster
finished with a .280 batting average for a
Spartans squad which hit a modest .263 as a
“Looks like he runs well, handles the bat
well, and he’s just exactly what Dave
Nakama said. He’s a baseball player, ”
Pickler said.
With the Cape Cod League’s opening day
being celebrated Wednesday, Yarmouth-
Dennis featured a starting lineup with
Mercurio playing left field and batting
eighth, and USF infielder Nico Giarratano —
son of Dons manager Nino Giarratano —
playing second base and batting ninth.
Like many of the elite amateur players to
play in the premier summer collegiate
league in the nation, Mercurio arrived in the
Cape just this week. And his utility on the
Yarmouth-Dennis roster somewhat bucked
convention for Pickler,
whose squad is already
loaded with left-handed
hitting outfielders.
“Dave Nakama called
me earlier in the year …
and said I have an out-
fielder,” Pickler said. “I
said, tell me he’s not left-
handed. He was left-hand-
ed. [Nakama] said he was
a great baseball player and, ‘Your type of
guy. ’ I said, ‘Alright, I’ll take him.’ I can
take him as a temporary player, not on a full
contract, because I was looking for a right-
handed hitter. Because all three outfielders I
had previously chose were all left-handed
Cape team loaded
The three left-handed-hitting outfielder
slated to start for the Red Sox this season
are BYU freshman Brennon Lund, Hartford
junior Ryan Lukach and LSU sophomore
Andrew Stevenson. With Stevenson arriv-
ing at the Cape Wednesday fresh off LSU’s
appearance in the Baton Rouge regional
playoffs, Pickler is intent on giving the
burgeoning collegiate star a few days to
acclimate, hence the opportunity for
Mercurio to crack the opening-day lineup.
With the loss of Florida State slugger D.J.
Stewart, who was named to the Team U.S.A.
roster earlier this month, Yarmouth-Dennis
may opt to keep Mercurio on the roster for
the remainder of the summer season.
“One of my outfielders will probably
make the team,” Pickler said. “And if they
don’t make it with us, they can make it with
another club if they get off to a good start.
It’s like piecing a puzzle together. ”
Pickler has traditionally had some
extraordinary puzzle pieces to work with. In
last week’s Major League Baseball First-
Year Player Draft, Yarmouth-Dennis saw a
slew of former players selected, including
standout Stanford third baseman Alex
Posey left his mark
One of the most prestigious players to
come out of the Cape in recent years was for-
mer Yarmouth-Dennis two-time Cape Cod
League All-Star Buster Posey, who demon-
strated his storied collegiate versatility in
two seasons with the Red Sox.
Following his freshman season at Florida
State, Posey was recruited by Pickler as a
pitcher. Posey ultimately anchored
Yarmouth-Dennis at shortstop, while clos-
ing two games with a 92-93 mph fastball,
according to Pickler. The next year, Posey
changed positions to his now natural place
as a catcher. And the now San Francisco
Giants great just kept on rolling by cutting
his teeth toward becoming a two-time World
Series champ by leading Yarmouth-Dennis
— which included other current big leaguers
Jason Castro, Gordon Beckham, David
Robertson and Collin Cowgill — to back-
to-back Cape Cod League titles.
“The next year he called me and said,
‘Pick, I’m not playing shortstop anymore,
I’m catching,’” Pickler said. “And he came
up here as a catcher and he made the All-Star
team both years and we won championships
both years.”
Pickler said he recognized the big-league
potential in Posey as an amateur, though it
was tough for anyone to predict what an
instant sensation he would become upon
arriving in San Francisco.
“I knew he was a great player,” Pickler said.
“I didn’t know he was going to be the MVP
and win World Series. He was the hardest
worker I’ve had — a quiet young man. I could
see he was going to be a big leaguer. Did I
know he was going to be an MVPand the type
of player he is? No. But I knew he was going
to play in the big leagues.”
Entering into this season, Yarmouth-
Dennis again features an array of promising
talent. Slated for Wednesday’s opening-day
start was UNLV junior right-hander Bryan
Bonnell. Perhaps the most high-profile arm in
the mix is Cal State Fullerton right-hander
Phil Bickford, fresh off a freshman season in
which he posted a 6-3 season in which he
posted a 2.13 ERAthrough 76 innings.
Bickford made headlines during the 2013
MLB Draft as a first-round pick of the Toronto
Blue Jays, but the Newbury Park native
bypassed the pros to attend Fullerton.
Yarmouth-Dennis president Steve Faucher
picked up Bickford from the airport Monday,
when he arrived at one of the most exciting
baseball environments in the nation sur-
rounding the summer months of the Cape Cod
“Oh my God. Everybody is pumped and
ready to go,” Faucher said. “I just picked up
[Bickford] from the airport and he was so
excited, I don’t think he slept a wink last
night. And neither did I.”

In the top of the fourth — an
inning in which the Barbarians
stranded the bases loaded without
scoring — Degnan effortlessly
chased down a low liner off the bat
of Brandon Balladares. Then after
San Carlos starting pitcher Sean
Yao escaped the jam unscathed,
Degnan led off the bottom of the
frame by scorching a double to
right-center, sparking a three-run
rally to give his starting pitcher
some breathing room.
After San Carlos sent nine batters
to the plate in the fourth, Degnan led
off the fifth with a booming drive
over the right fielder and motored all
the way around for the round tripper.
In his third year with San
Carlos, Degnan has impressed San
Carlos’ fifth-year manager both on
and off the field.
“He’s just been a good kid,”
Ramsey said. “Everything we ask
him to do, he’s done it.”
Yao went four shutout innings to
earn the win in his first start of the
season. He has been the workhorse
out of the San Carlos bullpen this sea-
son, pitching in nearly every game.
“He’s the type of arm that can
throw a lot of innings because his
arm never bothers him,” Ramsey
said. “We were planning on just
throwing him every game (in relief).”
San Carlos’ Antonio Arellano
closed it out. The big right-hander
worked two innings, allowing one
run on two hits. Having just
wrapped up his junior season at
Sequoia, Arellano didn’t pitch for
the Cherokees this season due to
the exceptionally deep staff that
helped the team to the Central
Coast Section semifinals.
“We had a large seniors pitching
staff,” Arellano said. “We had
(Peninsula Athletic Bay Division)
Pitcher of the Year Kyle Cambron,
first-team All Leaguer Cameron
Greenough. We were pretty deep in
senior pitchers and no junior pitch-
ers got to pitch this year.”
With Cambron and Greenough
both graduating, Arellano figures to
be a key component for the Sequoia
pitching staff next season, he said.
“I’m going to be probably the
main pitcher next year,” Arellano
said. “I’m just trying to maintain
my form and do my thing.”
San Carlos also has a stacked
pitching staff this season. Derek
Azzopardi and Joe Pratt have
emerged as the mainstays of the
starting rotation. Pratt is fresh off
serving as Carlmont’s No. 2
starter, posting a 4-3 record and a
2.62 ERAover 42 2/3 innings as a
junior for the Scots. Azzopardi just
finished his sophomore season at
American International College in
Springfield, Massachusetts.
The Barbarians got solid per-
formances from their Lick-
Wilmerding tandem of Balladares
and Frankie Lewis. Despite having
a potential hit taken away from him
by Degnan in the fourth, Balladares
was 2 for 4 on the evening. Lewis,
the Barbarians’ starting pitcher,
surrendered four runs over four
innings to take the loss. But he
kept San Carlos in check through
the first three innings.
Mike Michelini and Diego
Arellano also had two hits apiece
for San Carlos. Max Michelini had
a two-run single in the fourth.

“It’s not impossible,” Lundqvist
Twice Los Angeles put the puck
on the goal line, but couldn’t get it
all the way across. The last came
with 1:11 left when Rangers for-
ward Derek Stepan pushed the puck
out of danger in the crease after it
got behind Lundqvist.
“I was just holding my breath,”
Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi
said. “All those guys in the crease
did a great job to keep it out.”
Pouliot scored 7:25 into the first
period and St. Louis added a goal in
the second. New York squandered
multiple two-goal advantages in
losing the first two games in over-
time in Los Angeles.
Not this time.
Lundqvist and the Rangers con-
tinued their mastery of extending
their seasons. New York is 11-2 in
the past 13 games when facing
elimination, and Lundqvist was in
goal for all of them.
“When everything is on the
line, you just have to challenge
yourself the right way,” Lundqvist
said. “You have to be focused. One
mistake and the season is over.
You’re definitely aware of that.”
The Rangers also have won an
NHL-record eight consecutive
home games when facing elimina-
tion, dating to 2008, behind
“We got our first one,” St. Louis
said, “and I’m sure that’s going to
help our mood.”
The Kings were quick to the puck all
night and pressed for the tying goal in
the third. They outshot the Rangers
15-1 in the frame and 41-19 overall.
“I think we sat back a little too
much in the third period, but we
didn’t blow the lead this time,”
Stepan said.
Two nights after Jonathan Quick
stopped 32 shots in a 3-0 victory
that put the Kings on the brink of
another championship, Pouliot
got a puck past him.
St. Louis then put in a rebound at
the left post 6:27 into the second,
giving the Rangers their fifth two-
goal lead of the series. But just
like in Games 1 and 2, a two-goal
deficit sparked the Kings.
At the tail end of a Rangers
power play, Girardi broke his stick
and lost the puck to Kings captain
Dustin Brown for a breakaway.
Brown made several moves in front
of Lundqvist before tucking a fore-
hand inside the right post to make it
2-1 with 11:13 left in the second.
The Kings had a chance to get
even, but the Rangers killed
Dominic Moore’s cross-checking
penalty late in the period. Jeff
Carter then got behind Girardi
before being stopped on a break-
away by Lundqvist.
Pouliot broke Quick’s shutout
streak at 123 minutes, 1 second.
New York hadn’t scored since
Derick Brassard’s second-period
goal in Game 2. Pouliot’s fifth
goal of the playoffs came 2 sec-
onds after Kings defenseman
Willie Mitchell finished serving a
high-sticking penalty.
John Moore fired a drive from
the center of the blue line that
Pouliot deflected high with his
stick blade into the top right cor-
ner behind Quick.
The Kings almost tied it at 1-1
with 8:11 left in the first period—
seconds into a power play — when
defenseman Alec Martinez’s shot
got behind Lundqvist and slid
along the red goal line without
crossing it. Rangers defenseman
Anton Stralman cleared the puck
away as Carter and Marian Gaborik
pressured in the crease.
Video replay clearly showed that
the puck didn’t go over the line.
The Garden had a different feel
than the optimistic atmosphere of
Game 3 when the Rangers returned
home. There were no T-shirts
draped over the seats, and some of
the seats in prime-viewing areas
were empty. But as the Rangers
started to score, the crowd slowly
came alive, roaring in approval.

then facing Group B runner-up Netherlands
in the round of 16. Awin there and I have
the Canarinho facing a surprising England
side in the final eight. The semifinals could
be a barnburner with a looming matchup
against Germany, but I predict Brazil gets
past the National-Mannschaft and will face
Argentina in a dream final, with Brazil ulti-
mately prevailing, winning their first
World Cup crown since 2002 and seventh
in World Cup history.
How win Americans fare?
Now on to that second question: How
will the United States do in the 2014 World
Cup? I’m going to go way, way out on a
limb and say — actually, they could make
history. I’m predicting the Yanks will not
only make it out of the Group of Death, I’m
saying they advance to the quarterfinals,
eventually losing to Argentina.
Am I crazy? Probably, but the more I
think about it, the more I like the
American’s chances of advancing deeper in
a World Cup than they ever have.
Hear me out. In group play, the U.S.
opens with Ghana, who many may remem-
ber having knocked the Americans out of
the last two World Cups. My thinking here
is, however, they are getting Ghana before
the Black Stars can build up their confi-
dence. In the two previous matches against
the U.S., Ghana has eliminated the Yanks
in the round of 16. In those two matches,
Ghana had a full head of steam. This time,
the Black Stars will come into the game
wondering where they are as a team. Just
enough doubt for the Americans to pull out
a huge win.
Next up is Portugal, the No. 4 ranked
team in the world — and when it comes to
the World Cup, one of the most consistent-
ly underperforming team of all time. The
U.S. beat the heavily favored Selacao das
Quinas 3-2 to open the 2002 World Cup
group play and the Americans ended up
advancing out of group.
This time, Portugal is led by the likes of
Cristiano Ronaldo, the reigning world
player of the year. But Ronaldo is nursing
leg injuries ahead of the Cup which could
limit his effectiveness, despite a strong
showing in a 5-1 win over Ireland in a prep
game Tuesday. There is also the fact the
aggressive Portuguese defense might leave
some holes in the back in their quest to
push forward. The U.S. defense has its own
questions, but again, I think the U.S.
shocks everyone and pulls out a win.
With two wins in group play under their
belts, the U.S. closes group play against
Cup favorite Germany. If there is one thing
the Americans should have over the
Germans, it’s fitness. U.S. coach Jurgen
Klinsmann has his team in peak form to
deal with the sweltering conditions expect-
ed to greet them in Brazil. Germany may
think it’s conditioned, but they will find
out it is not.
There is also the fact the U.S. drilled
Germany in a friendly a year ago, granted
the German’s “B” team, but a Germany side
nonetheless. If it comes down to these two
teams being undefeated in group play, look
for one of the best games of pool play as
they battle it out for the top spot in Group
G. I’ll predict a tie for this match. Goal dif-
ferential could decide which teams gets the
No. 1 seed out of the group. For sake of
argument, let’s say Germany takes the top
spot with the U.S. as the second qualifier
out of the group.
That would send the Americans to the
round of 16 where they would most likely
face Belgium, who I predict will win Group
H. By this time, the U.S. will be flying
high and even a strong side like the Red
Devils won’t be enough as the U.S.
advances to the quarterfinals.
Where their Cup dreams will end. In my
draw, I have the U.S. facing Argentina in
the final eight and it’s at this point I wake
from my delirium and have La Albicelestes
ending the Americans’ run to soccer glory.
What makes me think the U.S. even has a
chance to advance out of the group stage,
where many believe they have a stronger
chance of going 0-3? For some reason, I
just have a feeling Klinsmann is sand bag-
ging his team. I think he’s just lying in the
weeds, waiting to ambush the rest of the
world. I think he believes his team is ready
to be more than competitive and really has
the drive to make a run deep into the tour-
Now, while many are probably shocked
to see me predict the U.S. to win three or
four games, I wouldn’t be stunned to see the
Americans go winless in group play and
slink home either.
Breaking down the 32
Athird question likely to linger for the
next week to 10 days: who are the favorites
to win the World Cup?
The list of the teams who have the best
shot of hoisting the Cup are not new. It’s a
relatively small group and includes the
likes of Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Spain
and Netherlands. Any one of these five
could end up winning it all and it wouldn’t
be a surprise.
Then there is the old guard that includes
European stalwarts England, France, Italy
and Portugal, as well as the African contin-
gent of Cameroon, Ghana and Nigeria.
Any of the four European teams could
easily find their way deep into the tourna-
ment, based on reputation alone. But the
world soccer scene is changing and these
teams have a history of underperforming in
recent Cups.
The African teams are still riding on the
coattails of Cameroon’s run to the 1990
quarterfinals. While all have ability to
advance out of group play, none have done
much past that.
If there is an old guard, there has to be a
new guard and that group includes Belgium,
Colombia, Switzerland and Uruguay. A
force leading up to the 1994 World Cup in
the United States, Colombia’s federation
was knocked back a couple decades with
their surprising loss to the U.S. in the first
game, which ultimately led to the killing
of defender Andres Escobar just weeks after
Colombia was eliminated from the World
Cup. Escobar scored an own-goal in the
loss to the Americans.
Colombia, however, is back among the
elite, ranked No. 8 in the world. Uruguay
was in the semifinals four years ago and
ended up finishing fourth, while Belgium
has been among the best in Europe the last
few years.
The dark horses are those teams that
while having a high world ranking, have a
lot of work to do to even advance out of the
group stage. This group includes the U.S.,
Mexico, the Baltic states of Croatia and
Bosnia-Herzegovina, Greece, Russia and
Chile. Of this group, Greece has the high-
est world ranking at No. 12, but the U.S. is
right behind Greece at No. 13. The
Americans, however, have the toughest
road, playing in “The Group of Death.”
That’s 23 of 32 teams accounted for. I
will not, however, lump any teams into a
“no way they can win” group because that
is simply unfair. To advance this far means
a team has to be good and as I’ve said
before, soccer is a funny game.
But every four years, it’s also the most
exciting sport in the world.

Werth hit his first homer in almost
a month and drove in three runs,
and the Washington Nationals
capitalized on Matt Cain’s erratic
start to beat the San Francisco
Giants 6-2 on Wednesday night for
their fourth straight win.
Cain (1-4) walked the first three
batters he faced before Adam
LaRoche’s two-run single high-
lighted a three-run first inning.
Werth’s solo shot in the fifth and
two-run single in the ninth pro-
vided the rest of the pop for the
Nationals, who have won 10 of
12, including the last three at San
Tanner Roark (5-4) allowed two
runs and seven hits in six-plus
innings for Washington. He struck
out four and walked none.
Brandon Crawford and Pablo
Sandoval each drove in a run for
the Giants, who have lost a sea-
son-high tying three straight after
winning five in a row to take over
baseball’s best record.
Cain’s struggles might have
been the most disappointing
thing of all for the Giants.
In his second start since a stint
on the disabled list with a strained
right hamstring, the former ace
reverted back to his early season
woes against Washington. Cain
gave up four runs and three hits in
five innings, walking five and
striking out four.
The finale of the four-game
series is Thursday, but the NLEast-
leading Nationals already have
handed San Francisco its first
series loss since the Giants were
swept at Pittsburgh from May 5-7.
The Giants had not lost two in a
row since May 16-17 to the
Marlins until the Nationals
showed up in San Francisco this
Even with standouts Bryce
Harper and Gio Gonzalez on the
disabled list, Washington is surg-
ing up the standings thanks to a
consistent approach at the plate,
on the mound and in the field.
Roark worked fast and attacked
hitters, and Washington’s defense
did the rest.
After Crawford’s RBI triple in
the fourth, second baseman Danny
Espinosa made a diving stop on
Gregor Blanco’s sharp grounder
and threw out the speedy runner at
first. Ryan Zimmerman also
swiped another run from San
Francisco in the sixth, when the
former third baseman made a div-
ing catch of Crawford’s fly to left
after Michael Morse doubled.
Sandoval, scratched from the
starting lineup because of an ill-
ness, singled home a run as a
pinch-hitter in the seventh to
whittle Washington’s lead to 4-2.
Zimmerman, filling in for Harper
in left, slid in to snag Angel
Pagan’s short fly for the third out.
With his back right leg almost
touching the dirt, Werth went low
to launch his sixth homer of the
season to put the Nationals up 4-1
in the fifth. Werth, who had not
homered since May 14 at Arizona,
singled with two outs in the ninth
off Yusmeiro Petit to extend
Washington’s lead to 6-2.
Drew Storen, Tyler Clippard and
Jerry Blevins each tossed a score-
less inning to help Washington
finished off San Francisco again.
NOTES: The Giants traded left-han-
der David Huff back to the Yankees for
cash. He was sent to San Francisco in
January for cash after the Yankees
signed Masahiro Tanaka.

VENICE, Italy — In an era of “starchi-
tects,” Rem Koolhaas, who merits mention
as one himself, wants to strip the discipline
to its barest elements, bypassing the cult of
personality and any architectural grandiosi-
t y.
Koolhaas had no time to waste as he hur-
riedly but efficiently guided visitors
through a one-hour tour of his exhibit
‘’Elements of Architecture” shortly before
it opened here last weekend as part of the
Venice Biennale’s 14th International
Architecture Exhibit. The exhibit covers
nothing less than architecture’s evolution
from homo erectus’ first man-made fire to
heating fixtures of the future, focusing on
the plainer elements: ceilings unnoticed
overhead; corridors too quickly bypassed;
those overlooked conveyances, elevators.
‘’If you look at each element in isola-
tion” you can feel its powerful, psycho-
logical dimension, Koolhaas said, beyond
any ‘’technical, artistic and pragmatic
Koolhaas, 69, is known for eschewing a
defined aesthetic in favor of using modern
materials and technology to meet clients’
needs. Projects by the Dutch architect and
the team he leads at Rotterdam-based OMA
have included a plan for the city center of
Lille, France, as well as such award-winning
buildings as the Netherlands Embassy in
Berlin and the new Seattle public library.
In preparing for the Biennale, Koolhaas
seemed thrilled to have found kindred spir-
its taken with the fundamentals of the archi-
tecture that surrounds us daily, such as a
German professor’s thesis on the corridor
and an Italian scholar’s study of false ceil-
ings. He himself has written a treatise on

Marigold is among the most widely
planted and, hence, mundane of flowers. Yet
I enjoy them as an essential part of summer
with their yolk-like blooms and pungent
For those who are bored by marigolds, as
well as those who love them, let me intro-
duce Lemon Gem and its kin.
Lemon Gem is unlike most familiar
marigolds. It belongs to a different species,
in fact, than the French or African
marigolds soon to open their sunny heads
in gardens almost everywhere. Those
marigolds you grow for their flowers —
large, solid-color pompoms in the case of
the African marigolds (Tagetes erecta), and
smaller, sometimes multicolored single or
double flowers in the case of the French
marigolds (T. patula).
Lemon Gem is one variety of the so-called
Signet marigolds (T. tenufolia), which you
might grow just for their leaves. The plants
are dainty, no more than about 8 inches
high, with leaves that have a ferny texture
and bright green color. Lemon Gem leaves
also reputedly have a lemony aroma,
although my nose has never picked it up.
The ferny leaves are a perfect background
for knitting together various parts of a
flower bed or mixed border. They would be
ideal for a knot garden, the kind of garden
that has narrow rows of dense, low-growing
plants patterned into a two-dimensional
Lemon Gem isn’t the only Signet
marigold on the block. Look also for
Tangerine Gem, Red Gem and others.
Speaking of marigold leaves, let’s look
for one moment at two other marigold
species notable for leaves. The leaves of
Spanish tarragon (T. lucida) have an anise
scent and are grown as a substitute for real
tarragon where it’s too hot or humid for that
plant. Besides its use as flavoring, Spanish
tarragon has also been recommended — in a
16th century herbal — for hiccups and for
crossing water safely.
Irish Lace (T. filifolia) is the other species
of foliage marigold, this one with lacy
leaves not unlike that of Lemon Gem. Irish
Lace has a sweet, anise-y flavor, good for
tea, as a flavoring or just for nibbling. (No
marigold should be consumed in too great a
quantity.) Both Spanish tarragon and Irish
lace also bear flowers, but tiny white ones
hardly worth mention.
Back to Lemon Gem: Besides being a
compact mound of dainty greenery, Lemon
Gem does indeed bear flowers. Pretty ones.
Each flower is half an inch across, single
and lemon yellow. You might think nothing
of them from this description, but they pop
out profusely through the foliage, each star-
ing out against the verdant backdrop like a
star twinkling in the night sky. In my gar-
den, Lemon Gem always stops visitors in
their tracks and elicits the question, “What
is that plant?”
Like other marigolds, Lemon Gem is easy
to grow. I sowed seed indoors about a month
ago, but you could just plant it outdoors
now. Sown directly in the garden, the first
blossoms are a bit delayed, but marigolds
are precocious, so the plants bloom in just
a few weeks anyway.
Lemon Gem marigold offers unusual foliage, flowers
Lemon Gem isn’t the only Signet marigold on the block.Look also for Tangerine Gem,Red Gem
and others.

With no obvious replacement for Prime Minister Nouri al-
Maliki — and no apparent intent on his part to step down —
Washington is largely resigned to continue working with
his Shiite-led government that has targeted Sunni political
opponents and, in turn, has inflamed sectarian tensions
across Iraq.
“He’s obviously not been a good prime minister,” said
Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, top Republican on the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “He has not done a
good job of reaching out to the Sunni population, which has
caused them to be more receptive to al-Qaida efforts.”
The panel’s chairman, Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., noted
only lukewarm support for al-Maliki, both in Iraq and
among U.S. officials. “I don’t know whether or not he will
actually be the prime minister again,” Menendez said. “I
guess by many accounts, he may very well ultimately put
(together) the coalition necessary to do that.”
Insurgents with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant,
which is inspired by al-Qaida, overran the northern Iraqi
town of Tikrit on Wednesday, a day after seizing Mosul, the
nation’s second-largest city. The insurgent network has
controlled the western city of Fallujah since the start of this
year, and is fighting to take over Beiji, a key northern oil
refinery town.
The rampage has raised new doubts about al-Maliki’s abil-
ity to protect Iraq in areas that were mostly calm when U.S.
troops withdrew from the country less than three years ago.
Since then, violence has roared back to Iraq, returning to
levels comparable to the darkest days of sectarian fighting
nearly a decade ago when the country teetered on the brink
of civil war.
Al-Maliki and other Iraqi leaders have pleaded with the
Obama administration for more than a year for additional
help to combat the growing insurgency, which has been
fueled by the unrelenting civil war in neighboring Syria.
Northern Iraq has become a way station for insurgents who
routinely travel between the two countries and are seeding
the Syrian war’s violence in Baghdad and beyond.

Prosecutors had been awaiting the
results of blood tests on Scott before
filing charges which they did
Wednesday, District Attorney Steve
Wagstaffe said.
Scott is due in court Aug. 5 on two
alternative misdemeanor DUI
charges, one of driving with more
with .08 in the blood and another of
driving while under the influence.
Scott is currently the assistant pre-
siding judge which is the second-
highest rank in San Mateo County
Superior Court. Scott joined the
bench in 2003 and his current six-
year term expires in 2017.
He has no prior DUI arrests.
Wagstaffe said the last time his
office prosecuted a judge on DUI
charges as in the 1970s. That judge
was convicted and continued to serve
on the bench without incident,
Wagstaffe said.

The advance into former insurgent
strongholds that had largely been calm
before the Americans withdrew less
than three years ago is spreading fear
that Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki,
struggling to hold onto power after
indecisive elections, will be unable to
stop the Islamic militants as they
press closer to Baghdad.
Fighters from the Islamic State of
Iraq and the Levant militant group
took control Tuesday of much of Iraq’s
second-largest city, Mosul, sending an
estimated half a million people fleeing
from their homes. As in Tikrit, the
Sunni militants were able to move in
after police and military forces melted
away after relatively brief clashes.
The group, which has seized wide
swaths of territory, aims to create an
Islamic emirate spanning both sides of
the Iraq-Syria border.
The capture of Mosul — along with
the fall of Tikrit and the militants’ ear-
lier seizure of the western city of
Fallujah — have undone hard-fought
gains against insurgents in the years
following the 2003 invasion by U.S.-
led forces.
The White House said the security
situation has deteriorated over the past
24 hours and that the United States was
“deeply concerned” about ISIL’s con-
tinued aggression.
There were no reliable estimates of
casualties or the number of insurgents
involved, though several hundred gun-
men were in Tikrit and more were fight-
ing on the outskirts, said Mizhar
Fleih, the deputy head of the municipal
council of nearby Samarra. An even
larger number of militants likely
would have been needed to secure
Mosul, a much bigger city.
The militants gained entry to the
Turkish consulate in Mosul and held
captive 48 people, including diplo-
mats, police, consulate employees and
three children, according to an official
in the office of Turkish Prime Minister
Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Turkish offi-
cials believe the hostages are safe, he
said, speaking on condition of
anonymity because he was not author-
ized to comment to reporters on the
sensitive issue.
The White House said in a statement
that Vice President Joe Biden spoke
with Erdogan and called for the safe and
immediate return of the Turkish per-
sonnel and family members. “The Vice
President told Prime Minister Erdogan
that the United States is prepared to
support Turkey’s efforts to bring about
the safe return of its citizens.”
Turkish officials did not make any
public comment on the seizure, but the
state-run Anadolu Agency reported that
Erdogan convened an emergency
Cabinet meeting. U.N. Secretary-
General Ban Ki-moon strongly con-
demned the abductions and the seizure
of Iraqi territory by the militants, urg-
ing “the international community to
unite in showing solidarity with Iraq
as it confronts this serious security
“Terrorism must not be allowed to
succeed in undoing the path towards
democracy in Iraq,” Ban said.
While the insurgents have advanced
southward, Baghdad did not appear to
be in imminent danger from a similar
assault, although Sunni insurgents
have stepped up car bombings and sui-
cide attacks in the capital in recent

MILWAUKEE — The Kohler
sink in your bathroom may be
more of a work of art than you
The company known for
kitchen and bathroom fixtures
has opened its factory floor to
artists for the past 40 years,
allowing them to share ideas and
techniques with factory workers
so that both can be inspired.
Three artists have created
pieces produced by Kohler Co.,
and many more have gone on to
design for other companies.
The program, celebrating its
40th anniversary, is notable for
its longevity and impact on the
arts world, said Larry Bush, a
ceramics professor at the Rhode
Island School of Design. Kohler
is unique in letting artists work
on the factory floor with
employees and providing equip-
ment to create work on a massive
scale, he said.
“The sort of thing that people
can do at the Kohler factory has
inspired a lot of work beyond the
Kohler factory,” Bush said.
Ruth DeYoung Kohler — a
print maker, former teacher and
granddaughter of Kohler Co.
founder John Michael Kohler —
created the Arts/Industry program
at the John Michael Kohler Arts
Center soon after taking over as
director in 1972. Artists who vis-
ited Kohler during a clay exhibi-
tion were hungry for access to
the factory’s molds and other
resources, and eager to learn the
techniques used by craftsmen
working there, she said. There
was little interaction between the
worlds of fine art and manufactur-
ing at the time.
Kohler convinced her brother,
Kohler Co. Chairman and CEO
Herb Kohler Jr., to let two artists
work at the factory for a month.
“They created all these fanciful
things with the plumbing prod-
ucts,” she recalled. “So, for
example, they took a urinal,
turned it on its back, added some
clay wheels and filled it full of
clay teeth and called it the Toot h
Fairy Wagon. And then they took
two toilets and put them back to
back ... and they turned it into a
rocket ship.”
The project so captivated
Kohler workers that the artists
were invited back for another
month in late 1974. Since then,
more than 400 artists have com-
pleted residencies lasting up to
six months. A retrospective of
their work is on display through
Aug. 31 at the John Michael
Kohler Arts Center in
Sheboygan, about an hour north
of Milwaukee.
Jan Axel, who completed two
residencies at Kohler in 1979 and
1981, created a sink carved with
undulating lines, and the compa-
ny later produced it commercial-
l y. Axel went on to create a pro-
gram that brought artists to
Kohler to embellish plumbing
fixtures for sale. Such collabora-
tion was radical at the time.
“It was sort of ‘not done’
because people wanted to be con-
sidered artists. They didn’t want
to be designers,” said Axel, of
South Salem, New York, who
went on to do product and land-
scape design.
Molly Hatch, a ceramics artist
from Northampton,
Massachusetts, said her 2009
residency gave her a new career
designing tableware for
Anthropologie, and stationery
and fabrics for other companies.
Hatch said that learning to use
liquid clay and molds at Kohler
allowed her to create pieces with
a consistency she couldn’t
achieve by hand.
At the same time, she was
struck by the amount of hand-
crafting done at Kohler, and she
now creates products that com-
bine mass production and a per-
sonal touch.
“Being exposed to the way
things were made on the floor at
the factory at Kohler, I realized
there’s so much more involved,
and a person behind the object,
and so much more pride taken in
every object,” Hatch said,
adding, “It just changed my
understanding of the process
completely. ”
Kohler said the factory workers
teaching the artists to use molds
and other equipment also have
been changed by the experience.
“They understand that their
skills are enormous,” she said,
“and their skills are valued by the
artists and the company. ”
Kohler brings artists to factory to learn, inspire
Kohler,the company known for kitchen and bathroom fixtures,has opened its factory floor to artists for 40 years.

option we should choose, but to get to
that point we need to do the testing to
determine what’s feasible.”
The city was awarded a Federal
Highway Administration reimburse-
ment grant that would have funded
most of the necessary repairs should
the city bring the bridge up to nation-
al and current seismic standards, which
officials have said necessitated widen-
ing it.
The council voted in September
2013 to replace the 103-year-old
artery into downtown after Caltrans
gave it a 24 out of 100 sufficiency rat-
ing. After community dissent, the
council placed Measure F, the Main
Street Bridge Preservation Act, and
Measure E, the Main Street Bridge
Safety and Accessibility Act, on the
June ballot. Measure F, which requires
voter approval for the demolition or
widening of the bridge, passed with
1,977 votes, or 66 percent.
With the election results, Interim
City Manager Stuart Schillinger said it
will likely have to forfeit that grant.
Prior to Measure F, the city could have
been reimbursed for testing costs,
however, it may now need to front the
money, Schillinger said.
The bridge needs to be addressed and
the city is discussing the parameters of
its grant with Caltrans and other fund-
ing options, Schillinger said.
“Ultimately, the question is going to
be what is the solution for a bridge that
Caltrans says passes their safety rat-
ings. And based on what that design is,
depends on what grants may or may
not be available,” Schillinger said.
“We still need to figure out what the
condition of the bridge is and then
from there make sure we find out what
the best solution is to make sure we
provide a safe bridge to the public.”
The bridge was one of the first con-
crete infrastructures reinforced with
steel so the city will seek an engineer-
ing firm with expertise. But it’s show-
ing clear signs of wear, Hall said.
There is heavy cracking on the con-
crete arch and its sidewalls and wing
walls, Hall said. Water appears to be
leaching through the concrete, which
indicates the cracks are very deep and
may be eroding the steel. The brackets
holding up the wooden sidewalks and a
waterline also appears corroded, Hall
One of the major unknowns is the
strength of the timber pilings
installed more than 100 years ago that
fasten the bridge to the ground, Hall
Other factors in rehabilitation
design options include the thickness
and compressive strength of its con-
crete elements, Hall said.
Even before the election, the Main
Street Bridge project was headed
toward the environmental review
process and it’s during that time the
city will devise preferred alternatives
and chose a project with the least
impacts, Schillinger said.
“The work that we’ve done so far has
been geared toward the CEQA and
[National Environmental Policy Act]
process … so whatever work we’ve
done for the most part will carry for-
ward,” Schillinger said.
Currently, the city has spent about
$300,000 for engineering consultants
and costs associated with starting the
project, Schillinger said.
Councilman Rick Kowalczyk said it
was a wide misconception that the city
spent a million dollars on the bridge
prior to the election. With infrastruc-
ture projects being undertaken across
the nation, federal grant funding is
drying up, Kowalczyk said. Now that
the city could forfeit it’s already award-
ed grant, Kowalczyk said he hopes to
find an alternative that could qualify.
“I fully accept the policy of the city
defined by Measure F and I’m going to
represent that and do my best to look
out for the interest of the city and of
the community based on the outcome,”
Kowalczyk said.
Yet some Measure F supporters say
they weren’t satiated by the election
and want the council to preemptively
adopt a substantively similar measure
citizens slated for the November bal-
Main Street merchant Charles
Nelson said if the council is truly inter-
ested in mending its ties with the com-
munity it should adopt the citizens’
“They’ve been talking about making
a truce and bringing the community
together again after this election. So
for me, it would be logical for them to
adopt it so we can put it all behind us
and move forward,” Nelson said.
The city removed what it called the
inflammatory language in the citizen’s
original ballot measure when it created
Measure F. City Attorney Toni
Condotti said the substantive language
is the same and, if it passes in
November, nothing will change.
Former mayor Deborah Ruddock said
bridge supporters want their original
measure passed in November because a
citizens’ initiative holds more weight
in a court of law.
Kowalczyk said politics aside,
Measure F passed and it’s time to move
“The more important view is for us
to complete structural testing … and
find all the grants and funding opportu-
nities that will support that,”
Kowalczyk said. “I think the responsi-
ble thing to do is design it properly
and get whatever financial support we
can get.”

and east of El Camino Real, Skinner
told the council at its Monday night
budget study session.
Skinner said he needs $202,742 for
the new firefighter/engineer and
$667,590 to cover the overtime hours.
He also said the department will imple-
ment a one-year pilot program to track
workers’ compensation costs and
injury types, evaluate unscheduled
leave, analyze overtime usage and
evaluate the actual cost of reinstating
Engine No. 9. The council will get a
report back in six months.
The city browned out Engine No. 9
in August 2010 but Skinner said public
safety was never jeopardized. The
majority of the calls are medical rather
than fire and the city began imple-
menting a two-man rescue squad vehi-
cle for those.
The council will consider Skinner’s
request along with other departments,
such as two new police officers, as part
of its budget adoption and approval at
the June 23 meeting.
The proposed balanced budget
includes $98.6 million in the general
fund and $25 million for capital
improvements. The city will have
$25.7 million in reserves, which is
26.1 percent, and fluctuate through
2019 when reserves are projected to be
$22.9 million right at the 20 percent
The proposed budget recommended
using $6 million in surplus revenue to
help pay down the unfunded liability
for workers’ compensation and create a
dedicated workers’ compensation ana-
lyst position to manage claims.
City Manager Bob Bell said the goal
is figuring out with a growing city how
to continue meeting current needs and
future demands.
The Redwood City budget is project-
ed to stay balanced for the foreseeable
future but retired finance director Brian
Ponty, who is working on an interim
basis, told the council that increasing
costs for public safety and workers’
compensation remain concerns as does
the next economic downturn.
Economic expansion is five years in
and typically runs in five- to seven-
year cycles, Ponty said.
“The one question we’re not able to
answer is ... when is the next recession
going to hit and how severe is it going
to be and which of our revenue streams
is going to be impacted,” Ponty said.
Areas of concern remain sales tax,
available land for car dealerships
which contribute significant-
ly to the budget, retirement
contributions, the Docktown
enterprise fund and workers’
compensation costs.
Ponty recommended trans-
ferring $50,000 from the
general fund to the Docktown
fund this year to keep it sol-
vent and believes it may need
$90,000 next year and for
the future as residents leave
and aren’t replaced.
The budget works on five-
year projects that may or
may not come to pass such as
secured property taxes going
up at least 5 percent in 2014-
15, jumping to 11.5 percent
the year after and then drop-
ping back to 3.6 percent and
4 percent because the city
will lose money due to the
so-called “triple flip” in
which the state takes money.
Employee contributions
will also substantially
increase in 2016-17 and

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Events could get out of
hand if you are too emotional. It’s best to hold back
and act as an observer if you want to avoid getting
dragged into a dispute.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Your quest for success
is likely to dominate you, causing insensitivity toward
a friend or relative. Before making a move, consider
the effects a change will have on others.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Love, friendship and high
spirits will keep you feeling on top of the world
today. Be sure to include younger and older family
members in your activities.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You will make a lot
more progress if you stop trying to persuade people
to see things your way. Belief in your own worth is
more important than the opinions of others. Follow
your own path.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You will meet someone
who interests you if you get out and socialize. Attend
an event, get-together or activity that will allow you
to put your charm to good use.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Make your work
uniquely your own. Don’t tempt fate by sharing your
plans. Be protective of your ideas to ensure that
others don’t try to profit from your efforts.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — A loved one
may feel neglected or taken for granted. Being
conscientious and caring will help you avoid an
emotional encounter. Nurture what you’ve got
before it’s too late.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Keep your secrets
tucked away. You can get through anything if you
remain calm and in control. Once the dust has
settled, you can put your plans in motion.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Consider all your
options before making a decision. Someone will
offer insightful advice, allowing you to find a
solution to an urgent dilemma.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You may be lacking
the key facts of a situation that is developing around
you. Refuse to let anyone influence you. Stay neutral
until you know the whole truth.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Let your imagination
run free. Fantasize about your future, and you will
discover a new and exciting avenue that will help to
get you where you want to go.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Don’t be too eager
to pick up the tab for someone else. Hold on to your
cash. Lending, borrowing or making a donation will
not turn out in your favor.

CAIRO — An Egyptian court on
Wednesday convicted a prominent activist
from the 2011 uprising of organizing an
unauthorized protest and assaulting a
policeman, sentencing him to 15 years in
prison, in the latest blow to liberal activists
at a time of rapidly eroding freedoms.
The sentence against Alaa Abdel-Fattah is
the toughest against any of the secular
activists behind the 18-day uprising that
ended Hosni Mubarak’s 29-year reign. It is
also the first conviction of a prominent
activist since former army chief Abdel-
Fattah el-Sissi took office as president on
In the 11 months since el-Sissi ousted the
country’s first freely elected president, the
Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi,
authorities have launched
a massive crackdown on
Islamists, detaining at
least 16,000 and killing
hundreds. Secular
activists opposed to what
they see as the revival of
Mubarak’s police state
have also been detained.
The crackdown is being
carried out in the face of a
burgeoning insurgency
by Islamic militants, who have killed and
wounded hundreds of policemen and army
troops since Morsi’s ouster.
As the government has moved to curb
freedoms won in the 2011 revolt — includ-
ing by enacting a law that severely restricts
protests — pro-military media have stoked
a resurgent nationalism and eagerly wel-
comed the return of a military man to the
presidential palace.

JERUSALEM — An Israeli aircraft struck
a target in the northern Gaza Strip
Wednesday, killing one person and wound-
ing three others, in the first deadly violence
between the sides since a new Palestinian
government took office last week.
The late-night airstrike came hours after
Palestinian militants fired a rocket into
southern Israel, the first such attack since
President Mahmoud Abbas formed the new
government and took charge, at least for-
mally, of Gaza. Israel has warned it would
hold the Western-backed Abbas responsible
for any attacks out of the territory, even
though the rival Hamas militant group
maintains de facto control.
Witnesses said the airstrike targeted a
man on a motorcycle and also struck a near-
by car. Palestinian medical officials said
two of the wounded were in critical condi-
tion. They did not immediately identify the
But in a statement, the Israeli military
identified the target as a 33-year-old mili-
tant linked to “global jihad,” a term it uses
to describe groups that are affiliated or
inspired by al-Qaida. It said the man had
participated in “many” rocket attacks while
also working as a Hamas policeman, and
described the airstrike as pre-emptive.
“Our policy is clear. Kill those who rise
up to kill us,” Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement.
