A lawsuit over the removal of 201 trees
from College of San Mateo that upset
neighbors over the loss of the natural barri-
er from noise, traffic and buildings was
thrown out of court under a statue of limita-
tions clause.
The California Court of Appeals ruled
Tuesday that the district did notice the pub-
lic on the December 2010 tree-cutting proj-
ect and that the appeal of the project was
beyond the 180-day statute of limitations.
Back in July 2011, neighbors in
Hillsborough joined together under the
name Citizens For a Green San Mateo and
sued the San Mateo County Community
College District for failing to conduct an
environmental impact review before remov-
ing the large trees from the ridgeline of the
campus, installing new lights in the park-
ing lots and reconfiguring the roads. The
group sought to require an environmental
impact review before plans moved forward
to cut trees and add new light fixtures, park-
ing lots and roads, which the plaintiff said
affected the adjacent neighborhood.
The court’s ruling states the Gateway
Phase I project and related tree removal
activities were within the scope of the proj-
ect described in the initial study and miti-
gated negative declaration. Even if the chal-
lenged activities did differ substantially
from the project described in the initial
study and mitigated negative declaration,
the lawsuit was filed July 1, 2011, more
than 180 days after the removal of trees

Middle, high schools hire officers
to patrol and educate students
By Samantha Weigel
Protecting and educating children about bullying, crime
and how to resist gangs are key responsibilities for San
Mateo’s expanded school resource officer program aimed to
support middle and high school students.
The San Mateo City Council approved an agreement
between the city, the San Mateo-Foster City Elementary
School District and the San Mateo Union High School
District Monday night. Each entity will now share the cost
to assign three police officers to cover the city’s three mid-
dle and high schools.

California’s budget deal
means more preschool
Education officials would like to have
seen more early education investment
By Angela Swartz
Compromise is the name of the game with the California
budget’s inclusion of additional preschool programming,
which is going to include less transitional kindergarten
than initially anticipated.
Countywide, it’s still unclear how many more preschool
slots there will be, but the state surveyed the local Title 5
programs, that serve low-income students, to assess how
Foster City’s closed Harry’s Hofbrau location is adjacent to the former Black Angus steakhouse which is now the site of the
future five-story, 121-room TownePlace Suites, Extended Stay Hotel at 1299 Chess Drive.
By Samantha Weigel
With two longtime Foster City
restaurants closed, officials hope a
soon-to-be constructed hotel will be
able to support a proposed restaurant
center and enable it to compete with
the neighboring Bridgepointe
Shopping Center.
Harry’s Hofbrau, at 1297 Chess
Drive, closed earlier this year and the
developer is proposing to tear down
the current 9,000-square-foot building
and construct a 11,000- to 12,500-
square-foot retail and restaurant space
with about 600 square feet of outdoor
seating, said Community
Development Director Curtis Banks.
The Harry’s Hofbrau location is adja-
cent to the former Black Angus steak-
house, now the site of the future five-
story, 121-room TownePlace Suites,
Extended Stay Hotel at 1299 Chess
The city has long struggled to main-
tain a successful retail presence with
San Mateo’s neighboring and popular
Bridgepointe Shopping Center near-
by. However, councilmembers are
hopeful these two new developments
will serve each other.
“Nobody would know where
Bridegpointe and San Mateo ends and
where Foster City begins. Not too
many people know there’s a boundary
right next door,” Councilman Art
Kiesel said. “A restaurant (at the
Harry’s site) will be able to compete
with Bridgepointe better than one on
the south side of (State Route) 92
because … with the extended stay
hotel it gives them a place to go eat
that’s just a short walk. It’d be the
closest restaurant there so they’d
almost have a captive market.”

Tsai of 1297 Chess Restaurant Group,

Arizona eatery shames
art thieves on Facebook
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Two accom-
plices in the theft of a painting at a
Flagstaff restaurant have come forward
after a shaming campaign on Facebook.
The Arizona Daily Sun reported
Tuesday that Tyler Christensen, the
owner of McMillan Bar and Kitchen,
went to social media instead of police
after the painting went missing on June
Christensen posted an open letter and
surveillance photo of a man putting the
painting in his backpack while the two
accomplices acted as lookouts.
He says the two accomplices have
since come forward and given $500 to
cover the cost of the artwork.
Christensen’s Facebook post has
been shared more than 7,900 times and
received more than 4,300 likes and
nearly 770 comments.
The artwork, however, was last seen
hanging from a tree.
Monk who lobbied
for special burial dies
California monk, who successfully lob-
bied the Legislature to pass a bill allow-
ing him to be buried on the nine-acre
grounds of his Orthodox Christian
monastery, has died.
The Rev. Stephen Scott, a longtime
friend of 75-year-old Abbott Theodor
Micka, said he died peacefully on
Tuesday after a battle with cancer.
Micka and Scott opened the Holy
Cross Monastery in 1979 to provide
religious services and ceremonies for
fellow Orthodox Christians. Building it
had been a decades-old dream, Micka
said, and so when he was diagnosed with
cancer last year, he and Scott pursued an
exemption to state law, which would
have required Micka to be buried in a
cemetery or cremated.

Dead dog found in freezer
donated to thrift shop
LOMALINDA— Southern California
authorities say a freezer donated to a
thrift shop contained an unwelcome sur-

investigators were called to the Re:Live

The San Bernardino Sun says two men

1,000 stolen Android tablets
NORCO — Authorities in Riverside
County say they’ve recovered 1,000
Android computer tablets stolen from
an electronics store and arrested two
store employees.
The Riverside Press-Enterprise says a
total of 1,400 Zeepad tablets — valued
at a total of $90,000 — were taken from
the Norco store on June 6.
Sheriff’s deputies learned that tablets
were being advertised online and posed
as buyers. Undercover agents met with
two men and they were arrested on
Tuesday. The 1,000 tablets were found
after a search of a home and a storage
Authorities say Nanak Singh and his
cousin, Amrik Singh, both of
Riverside, worked at the store.
They were released from jail on bail
Wednesday and couldn’t immediately be

Teen stowaway can’t

The two write-in candidates for judge and
sheriff on the June primary ballot amassed
hundreds of votes between them in an elec-
tion that saw record low turnout in San
Mateo County.
Juan Lopez and Christopher Shenfield
both finished Election Night without
enough votes to merit mention on the June
3 results but both men’s results are now
reported by the Election Office’s semi-offi-
cial tally.
Lopez, a sheriff’s deputy, received 997
votes, or 1.43 percent, in his bid to unseat
current Sheriff Greg Munks. Munks
received 68,530 votes or 98.57 percent of
the vote.
Burlingame attorney
Christopher Shenfield, a
write-in candidate again
Susan L. Greenberg and
Jeffrey Hayden for a
Superior Court judge
spot, received 57 votes
which is equal to 0.07
percent of the total.
Greenberg won the elec-
tion with 71.55 percent,
or 55,972 votes, and
Hayden received 28.38 percent or 22,197
While Shenfield said he purposefully decid-
ed to run after the candidacy period closed,
Lopez tried to get his paperwork filed in time
and narrowly missed the deadline.
Both men ran in a gubernatorial primary
that saw historic lows in
participation statewide.
In San Mateo County,
of 354,994 registered
votes, 97,443 individu-
als — or, 27.45 percent
— cast ballots. While an
increase from the less
than 20 percent turnout
reported at the close of
election night and likely
above the state average, the latest figures
are still “very low compared to four years
ago,” said Elections Division Manager
David Tom.
Tom wasn’t certain if the percentage was
an all-time drop but said “it’s definitely a
record low within the last 20 to 30 years.”
The results also show that county voters
continue preferring absentee ballots as
their method of voting. Vote by mail bal-
lots were 21.27 percent of the total, fol-
lowed by 6.06 percent cast at precincts and
.12 percent at voting centers.
The results will be deemed official and
certified once the Elections Office finishes
its mandatory 1 percent tally to verify the
accuracy of the automated count. For the
tally, precincts are randomly chosen by
throwing three 10-sided dice. The tally
began Monday, June 16 and must be fin-
ished within 28 days of the election.
All June 3 primary results are available
online at www.shapethefuture.org.

December 22, 1952 – June 9, 2014
Douglas Wayne Kaul (formerly of San Mateo) passed away following a
brief illness on Monday, June 9th at his home in McArthur, California
with his loving wife Sandi, daughter Yvonne and his beloved
Labradors, Brawny Bear and Bailey at his side. He spent his last day
surrounded by friends and family, watching the Giants beat New York
twice and maintaining his sense of humor and spirit to the end.
Doug and Sandi moved to McArthur, California from San Mateo in 2010 to fulfill the dream
of enjoying their retirement years in the beautiful Fall River Valley of far Northeastern
California. Having retired as a Welding Inspector, Doug built his dream ranch and shop
and enjoyed every moment spent there with family and friends. Doug’s spirit will live on in
McArthur and at their ranch for years to come.
A memorial celebration of Doug’s life is planned for Saturday, August 9
at their home in
McArthur. Sandi is planning to establish a scholarship fund to benefit welding students in
Doug’s memory. Please email her at rockingkrch@yahoo.com if you would like further details.

SACRAMENTO — Open burning

thing lawmakers did as they
passed California’s $108 billion
general fund budget this week was
take up a mysterious tax break for
the solar industry.
SB871, which extends a proper-
ty tax for solar credits through
2024, was never heard by a regular
policy committee and the public
had little chance to provide input
before the Democratic Legislature
rammed it through last weekend.
The current tax benefit is not
even set to expire, or “sunset,”
until 2017.
Several lawmakers from both
parties criticized the process, and
a coalition representing other
alternative energy industries
called Wednesday for Gov. Jerry
Brown to veto the extension when
he signs the rest of the budget in
coming days.
“We’re taking it up 2 1/2 years
before it expires,” said Senate
Minority Leader Bob Huff, R-
Diamond Bar, as lawmakers
approved the measure Sunday
night. “Now, I enjoy a good sun-
set, but we’re like at noon here.
So, for that reason alone, I’m
going to vote no.”
The measure first surfaced when
it was briefly mentioned as law-
makers met last week to negotiate
the details of the main budget
Assemblyman Wesley Chesbro,
D-Arcata, was among the critics
when it reappeared as lawmakers’
last order of business in passing
the budget.
“I think it needs to be decided
through a public and transparent
process where members had a
chance to have those arguments
played out,” said Chesbro, who
was among five Assembly
Democrats who voted against the
bill. Despite their opposition, it
passed and was sent to the
Democratic governor with wide
bipartisan support.
The proposal did not come from
Brown’s administration, but the
administration supported the
extension, said H.D. Palmer,
spokesman for the Department of
Legislators said the measure
wasn’t theirs, either, until Sen.
Mark Leno, D-San Francisco,
acknowledged ownership
Wednesday in an interview with
the Associated Press.
Leno, chairman of the Senate
budget committee, said he’d
intended that the extension go
through the normal budget
process, but he created a separate
bill at the last minute after a regu-
lar budget committee failed to take
up the tax exemption.
He said the existing exemption
has created tens of thousands of
jobs, helped the state with its goal
of having a million solar
rooftops, reduced greenhouse gas
emissions and limited increases
on property taxes for residential
property owners.
Other alternative energy
groups, including the California
Wind Energy Association,
Geothermal Energy Association
and California Biomass Energy
Alliance, said the tax break unfair-
ly benefits one renewable energy
technology. The solar industry is
doing well, they said, while alter-
natives flounder.
The measure was backed by solar
and building industry associations
including the Solar Energy
Industries Association and Large-
Scale Solar Association, both of
which include representatives
from solar installer SolarCity.
SolarCity chairman Elon Musk
is also a founder and CEO of the
electric vehicle maker Tesla
Motors, which is planning to
build a $5 billion factory to sup-
ply batteries for its cars.
Campaign records show that
solar power companies and a
building industry association
backing the tax break contributed
$11,500 last year to Leno’s lieu-
tenant governor account for 2018,
when he is termed out of the
Senate. Of that, $1,000 came from
SolarCity spokeswoman Molly
Canales did not return a telephone
message seeking comment
Wednesday night.
California is among several
states seeking to land the factory,
but Leno said the solar bill was
not intended to court Musk’s
“That would be a very clever
idea, but that was not in my mind
at all,” Leno said.
Senate Bill 871, which extends a property tax for solar credits through
2024,was backed by solar and building industry associations including
the Solar Energy Industries Association and Large-Scale Solar Association,
both of which include representatives from solar installer SolarCity.

WASHINGTON — Two senators
unveiled a bipartisan plan
Wednesday to raise federal gaso-
line and diesel taxes for the first
time in more than two decades,
pitching the proposal as a solu-
tion to Congress’ struggle to pay
for highway and transit programs.
The plan offered by Sens. Chris
Murphy, D-Conn., and Bob
Corker, R-Tenn., would raise the
18.4 cents-a-gallon federal gas
tax and 24.4 cents-a-gallon diesel
tax each by 12 cents over the next
two years, and then index the
taxes to keep pace with inflation.
The increase would be applied in
two increments of 6 cents each.
The plan also calls for offset-
ting the tax increases with other
tax cuts. Senators said that could
be done by permanently extend-
ing six of 50 federal tax breaks
that expired this year, but they
indicated they would be open to
other suggestions for offsets.
The plan was immediately
embraced by industry and trans-
portation advocacy groups seek-
ing a long-term means to keep the
federal Highway Trust Fund sol-
vent. However, it would require a
lot of heavy lifting from
Congress in the politically
charged atmosphere of an election
year to pass such a plan before
late August, when the trust fund is

A Burlingame man with a history of
intoxicated driving offenses was properly
convicted of second-degree murder in the
2009 crash that wrapped his car around an
eucalyptus tree and killed his passenger, an
appellate court ruled.
Bruce Alan Walker Jr., 38, is serving 15
years to life in prison for the April 11,
2009, death of Daniel James White in the
single-car collision at Howard Avenue and
El Camino Real. A jury in his first 2010
trial convicted him of vehicular
manslaughter but hung 9-3 on guilt of the
murder count. Asecond jury came back with
murder after a trial in which the prosecu-
tion showed Walker competed two different
DUI offender programs, was out on bail in
a Wisconsin DUI case and even had his
keys removed from a friend the night he
decided to drive.
Walker argued in his appeal that the sec-
ond jury should have learned of the earlier
conviction rather than be left feeling like
it had an all-or-nothing choice between
acquittal and guilty of murder. The appeal
also argued that at least one juror only con-
victed White of murder out of concern he
might re-offend and not
feeling there was anoth-
er option.
In its opinion issued
this week, the First
Appellate District Court
upheld Walker’s convic-
tion and concluded jurors
properly felt that he
“knew the dangers of
drinking and driving and
it did not deter him.”
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said
his office is “very, very pleased” with the
court’s ruling.
Walker’s appeal argued that jurors were
given confusing instructions about the
implied malice required to convict on the
murder charge.
Defense attorney Geoff Carr, who repre-
sented Walker during his two trials, said he
was most troubled that the appellate court
was unswayed on the argument that the jury
was given two different common defini-
tions of “deliberate” within the legal
“There’s a fiction involved that a jury is
supposed to know which dictionary to use,
mine or [prosecutor Joe Cannon],” Carr
The appeal also claimed Walker’s Fourth
Amendment rights were violated because
the blood test showing his .20 alcohol
level was taken without a warrant.
After Walker was hospitalized following
the crash of his silver Infiniti M45, he
first replied “whatever” when told a blood
sample was required but changed his mind
and declined after learning White died. A
phlebotomist took the blood while Walker
slept in the trauma room. The blood test
also indicated Walker had used cocaine
within six to eight hours of the draw.
Earlier that night, Walker’s ex-girlfriend
and her family met him for dinner at
Broadway Prime and as they left took his
car keys, handing them to White. Walker
told the woman he was going to meet some
During trial, the jury also heard of sever-
al prior DUI incidents involving Walker
including a February 2001 arrest in
Burlingame for which he was convicted and
a February 2009 Wisconsin collision for
which he was on bail. In that case, police
found Walker in a restaurant parking lot
loading luggage from a damaged car into a
taxi after the crash. That case was dis-
missed after his prosecution in the newest
San Mateo County case.
After the 2010 mistrial, prosecutors
announced plans to retry Walker after he
declined to take a plea deal for roughly 12
years in prison and waiving his right to
Following the trial, Carr argued for a new
trial because one juror who had been
excused for conducting her own Internet
research informed the court that if the jury
knew of his earlier manslaughter convic-
tion “there is absolutely no way that he
would have been convicted of second-
degree murder by this jury.”
The trial judge found the one juror’s com-
ments less reliable than the foreperson
who disagreed with the account and had
previously alerted the court to her improp-
er Google search. Appellate court judges
agreed on their own that the juror’s
remarks would not have changed the out-
The “fleeting” comments were “innocu-
ous and insignificant compared with the
credible evidence ... that [Walker] drank
excessive amounts of alcohol before get-
ting in his car and driving recklessly on El
Camino with conscious disregard of the
danger to life his conduct posed,” Judge
Robert Dondero wrote.

Escaped San Francisco jail inmate arrested
SAN FRANCISCO — Authorities say an inmate who
escaped from the San Francisco County Jail has been
Sheriff’s Deputy Enrique Lunquin said 40-year-old
Timothy Midgett was arrested at a San Francisco homeless
shelter without incident on Tuesday night after sheriff’s
deputies received a call that he was there. He is being held
without bail on suspicion of felony escape.
Authorities say Midgett fled from the jail on June 7 while
taking out the trash. He had been granted special privileges
because he was deemed a low-risk inmate and wasn’t a vio-

Officials deem five Oakland fires suspicious
OAKLAND — Firefighters will be back in the Oakland

they have deemed suspicious.
Oakland Fire Battalion Chief Lisa Baker says crews on

a day earlier.
Baker says about 100 firefighters from several local and
state agencies put the blazes out in about an hour. No

SEATTLE — Amazon has introduced
a new smartphone with audio and
object recognition technology that
seeks to make it easier for consumers
to locate and purchase products and
services from the nation’s largest e-
commerce company.
The new Fire phone also adds such
features as the ability to render images
in 3-D.
The Fire phone doesn’t differ much
from other smartphones on the market
and shares many characteristics found
in other Amazon devices. For
instance, the phone will have X-Ray
for supplemental content about
movies and TV shows and Mayday for
live tech support.
Amazon’s new Firefly feature allows
users to take a photo of an object, such
as a toaster or a soup can, and get more
information about it, including a way
to purchase it through Amazon.
Amazon ties new 4.7-inch phone to its services
city requesting an amendment to the
general plan for Vintage Park, the 132-
acre area that includes the proposed
development site.
Per the city’s new code amendment,
projects requiring zoning or general
plan amendments go before the City
Council and public for input prior to a
developer spending time and money
on a formal application. This project
will be reviewed Monday, June 23,
Banks said.
The developer wants the flexibility
to chose which store or restaurant
would fill the site based on the market,
according to a staff report. However, it
has suggested about 8,000 square feet
be designated for sit-down as well as
fast casual dining and the remainder be
filled by retail and service shops such
as mobile phone store or a bank,
according to a city staff report.
Tsai received approval for Extended
Stay hotel around September, 2013,
according to a city staff report. Around
that time, the owners of the Harry’s
Hofbrau site questioned the adequacy of
a document relative to the environ-
mental review of the 1299 site, accord-
ing to the report.
Tsai then purchased the Harry’s site
on April 8, 2014. Tsai did not return a
request for comment.
Councilman Herb Perez said the
Harry’s Hofbrau was outdated and the
hotel will need to help support a future
“For me, it’s quite frankly in the
middle of nowhere relative to every-
thing else that’s going on there. It’s in
essence, kind of a lost space. It’s not
really a well-trafficked road,” Perez
said. “If they have something that’s
creative, that they could generate rev-
enue and if it’s supported by the
hotels, than that’s a creative use.”
Due to the influx of 2,000 to 3,000
new employees expected from the
expansion of the Gilead Sciences cam-
pus, hotels are bound to be busy, Perez
With the new Extended Stay hotel
directly next door, those who visit will
undoubtedly need places to eat or serv-
ices that could be provided if the site is
redeveloped, Perez said.
Councilman Steve Okamoto said the
restaurants would be easily accessible
to the city’s growing tech companies.
“It’s also close enough for some of
the folks who work at Visa and Gilead
types of business where they’re going
to have an opportunity to eat and
spend money in Foster City, ”
Okamoto said.
Based on the proposal, the new
development would need to provide
about 141 parking spaces and the
plans indicate the necessary parking
cannot be provided on site. However,
it’s anticipated the restaurant and hotel
could share parking due to varying
demand times. Both sites also have the
potential to access off-site parking,
according to the report.
The City Council will hold a public
hearing on the proposal to redevelop
the 1297 Chess Drive site 6:30 p.m.

KIEV, Ukraine — The new president of
Ukraine promised on Wednesday that gov-
ernment troops would soon stop firing on
pro-Russian armed separatists, offering a
chance to end the fighting that has killed
hundreds and wracked the industrial east.
In another concession to Moscow, Petro
Poroshenko replaced his foreign minister,
who had outraged Russians by using an
obscenity to describe President Vladimir
An end to the two months of fighting and
a promised safe exit for rebels would allow
Putin to say that Russia has fulfilled its goal
of protecting Russian speakers in eastern
Ukraine, while Poroshenko can claim victo-
ry over the rebellion.
The Ukrainian president discussed his
plan for a unilateral cease-fire in a phone
call with Putin late Tuesday, their offices
said, and Poroshenko also spoke with
German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Russia’s foreign minister cautiously wel-
comed the move, but voiced concern that it
could be a ruse. One key question is whether
Moscow is willing and able to persuade the
pro-Russia insurgents to accept
Poroshenko’s plan.
Rebel leaders have remained defiant, but in
a sign of behind-the-scenes maneuvering,
some of them visited Moscow this week to
meet with senior officials and lawmakers.
The two sides managed to arrange a brief
truce Wednesday evening
in the eastern town of
Karlivka to allow pro-
Russian forces to hand
over the bodies of 49
Ukrainian troops who
died when the separatists
shot down a transport
plane bound for the air-
port in Luhansk last
But after the truck car-
rying the remains had passed to the
Ukrainian side, both sides fell back to their
respective positions. Apro-Russian fighter,
whose face was covered with a bandanna and
identified himself only by his nom-de-
guerre, Sova, said the cease-fire was over.
“The war will go on until we win,” he said.
U.N. Assistant Secretary-General for
Human Rights Ivan Simonovic called
Poroshenko’s cease-fire announcement “a
timely initiative.” But he stressed that it
was “a real challenge” because U.N. human
rights monitors in eastern Ukraine believe
there are at least three distinct armed groups
that don’t fully coordinate.
“This may represent a problem because
some of them might be adhering to cease-
fires, some not,” Simonovic told the
International Peace Institute in New York.
If successful, the plan could help ease the
worst crisis between Russia and the West
since the Cold War, a situation triggered by
Moscow’s annexation of Crimea in March
following the ouster of Ukraine’s pro-
Russia president.

KABUL, Afghanistan — Presidential can-
didate Abdullah Abdullah demanded
Wednesday that Afghan electoral authorities
stop counting ballots from a weekend runoff
vote, citing new allegations of widespread
fraud. The election commission refused and
appealed to all sides to await final results.
The discord set the stage for a showdown
that could threaten Afghanistan’s first peace-
ful transfer of authority.
Abdullah, a onetime aide to a famed warlord
during the Afghan anti-Soviet guerrilla cam-
paign, said monitors deployed by his cam-
paign to the polls had recorded massive bal-
lot box stuffing and other irregularities. He
also announced his team was suspending
relations with the Independent Election
Commission, accusing it of interfering in
the vote and inflating turnout figures.
The finger-pointing in the June 14 election
pitting Abdullah against Ashraf Ghani
Ahmadzai mars what Western officials had
hoped would be an important step toward
democracy for the troubled country as the
U.S. and its allies wind down their 13-year
combat mission. Both candidates have prom-
ised to sign a security pact with the United
States that would allow nearly 10,000
American troops to stay
in the country beyond the
end of this year to train
Afghan security forces
and perform counterterror-
ism operations.
President Hamid Karzai,
the only leader the coun-
try has known since the
2001 U.S.-led invasion
that ousted the Taliban,
was constitutionally
barred from seeking a third term.
Abdullah’s team has said its exit polling
shows Ahmadzai with a 1 million-vote lead
in the current round and claimed election
workers and government officials had engi-
neered fraud to help him.
“We announce that we have no confidence
or trust in the election bodies,” Abdullah said
at a news conference. “The counting process
should stop immediately and if that contin-
ues, it will have no legitimacy.”
He proposed that the two candidates form a
joint committee under U.N. supervision to
resolve the issue.
A spokesman for the electoral commis-
sion, Noor Mohammad Noor, said the vote
count was continuing with national and
international observers monitoring the

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

WASHINGTON — President
Barack Obama and congressional
leaders believe he does not need
authorization from Congress for
some steps he might take to quell
the al-Qaida-inspired insurgency
sweeping through Iraq, the
Senate’s top Republican and
Capitol Hill aides said after the
president briefed senior lawmakers
Still, the prospect of the presi-
dent sidestepping Congress raises
the potential for clashes between
the White House and rank-and-file
lawmakers, particularly if Obama
should launch strikes with manned
aircrafts or take other direct U.S.
military action in Iraq.
Administration officials have said
airstrikes have become less a
focus of recent deliberations but
have also said the president could
order such a step if intelligence
agencies can identify clear targets
on the ground.
Obama huddled in the Oval Office
for over an hour to discuss options
for responding the crumbling
security situation in Iraq with
Senate Majority Leader Harry
Reid, D-Nev., Senate Minority
Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. ,
House Speaker John Boehner, R-
Ohio, and House Minority Leader
Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
Speaking to reporters as he
returned to the Capitol,
McConnell said the president
“indicated he didn’t feel he had any
need for authori-
ty from us for
steps that he
might take.”
Pelosi con-
curred with the
president, say-
ing in a state-
ment after the
meeting that
Obama does not
need “any further legislative
authority to pursue the particular
options for increased security
assistance discussed today.” She
did not specify what options were
An administration official said it
was the leaders who suggested
Obama already had existing
authorities to take additional
action in Iraq without further con-
gressional authorization. The offi-
cial downplayed the notion that
Obama agreed with that assess-
ment, saying only that the presi-
dent said he would continue to con-
sult with lawmakers.
The White House has publicly
dodged questions about whether
Obama might seek congressional
approval if he decides to take mil-
itary action. Last summer, Obama
did seek approval for possible
strikes against Syria, but he
scrapped the effort when it became
clear that lawmakers would not
grant him the authority.
However, administration offi-
cials have suggested that the pres-
ident may be able to act on his
own in this case because Iraq’s
government has requested U.S.
military assistance.

BAGHDAD — Iraqi forces and
Sunni militants battled fiercely for
control of the nation’s largest oil
refinery on Wednesday as Prime
Minister Nouri al-Maliki went on
a diplomatic offensive, reaching
out in a televised address to try to
regain support from the nation’s
disaffected Sunnis and Kurds.
Meanwhile, the government
asserted that it had retaken partial
control of a strategic city near the
border with Syria.
Al-Maliki’s conciliatory words,
coupled with a vow to teach the
militants a “lesson,” came as
almost all Iraq’s main communi-
ties have been drawn into a spasm
of violence not
seen since the
dark days of
s e c t a r i a n
killings nearly
a decade ago.
The U.S. has
been pressing
al-Maliki to
adopt political
inclusion and
undermine the insurgency by mak-
ing overtures to Iraq’s once-domi-
nant Sunni minority, which has
long complained of discrimina-
tion by his government and abus-
es by his Shiite-led security
In Washington, President
Barack Obama briefed leaders of
Congress on options for quelling
the al-Qaida-inspired insurgency,
though White House officials said
the president had made no deci-
sions about how to respond to the
crumbling security situation in
Iraq. While Obama has not fully
ruled out the possibility of launch-
ing airstrikes, such action is not
imminent, officials said, in part
because intelligence agencies
have been unable to identify clear
targets on the ground.
Al-Maliki, a Shiite, has rejected
charges of bias against Iraq’s
Sunnis and Kurds and has in recent
days been stressing that the threat
posed by the militant Islamic
State of Iraq and the Levant, or
ISIL, will affect all Iraqis regard-

Letters to the editor
By Charlie Bronitsky
ur city councils and our school
districts are separate elected bod-
ies with separate responsibilities.
When it comes to educating our children,
however, we need to look beyond the lines
of what we are officially responsible for
and do all that we can to fulfill that societal
obligation. Education of our children is the
only way to ensure a great future, not only
for Foster City, but for our entire country.
Moreover, not only do governments have
this responsibility, it is the responsibility
of each and every one of us to educate not
only our own children but the community’s
children. That my child no longer needs
formal public education is irrelevant. My
communities’ children need to be educated
for the sake of our future. Unless and until
we ingrain this in our society, our educa-
tion systems will continue to deteriorate
and we will lose our competitive advantage
in the world. The risks are simply too enor-
mous to allow that to occur, so I am calling
on each and every one of you to commit
and to participate actively in ensuring a
great education for all of our students.
Here’s how.
Our elementary and middle schools are
run by the San Mateo-Foster City
Elementary School District. In Foster City,
our schools all score among the best in the
state. However, our schools are overcrowd-
ed and becoming more so every day. In
addition, within our district, we have eco-
nomically disadvantaged children who do
not currently have the opportunity to
attend our schools because we do not have
room. In San Mateo, the schools are also
becoming overcrowded and those schools
are also impacted in ways that further exac-
erbate the problem of providing a better
education for economically disadvantaged
students. In an attempt to address these
issues, the school district
has formed a community-
based Next Steps
Committee with members
from both Foster City
and San Mateo. They are
looking at solutions for
facilities and for helping
those in our community
who need additional
They began meeting earlier this year to
look at the conditions of the various facili-
ties and to understand the issues they are
facing. They are now about to take their
summer break but, once school is back in
session, their next step in the process is to
solicit community feedback on the prob-
lems and possible solutions for our chil-
dren. I know that there have been issues
relating to costs and allocation of funds. I
know that there have been issues on the
equity between Foster City and San Mateo
on educating the economically disadvan-
taged students. I know there are myriad
other issues that trouble people about our
school system, but we cannot let these
problems stop us from finding a solution.
So, San Mateo and Foster City, I am now
asking you to get involved in finding solu-
I, as mayor of Foster City, Robert Ross,
as mayor of San Mateo, Colleen Sullivan,
as the president of the school board, along
with our two city managers and the school
superintendent have formed our own com-
mittee and we meet monthly in our effort to
help the school district and the Next Steps
Committee with these issues. Starting in
September, the Next Steps Committee will
be coming to your local schools, religious
organizations, homeowners association
meetings and the like to hear from you on
your concerns and your ideas for solutions
to the pending problems. Please, please,
please participate in that process.
There are always potential issues when
there are two organizations that need
resources and services. Our school district
is no exception. However, San Mateo and
Foster City have repeatedly been able to
work together for the betterment of both
cities, finding ways to compromise and
share such that it has benefited all of us by
allowing us to work together for the com-
mon good, and often at much lower cost.
The recent collaboration in our fire services
is but one example, and there are many. If
governments can do it, so can the people.
We all understand that these are difficult
issues, but we can come together as a com-
munity, open the dialogue, listen more
than talk and be willing to compromise. If
each of us will do that and will dedicate her
or his self to providing the best education
possible, we can and will find reasonable
solutions to these problems, solutions
which do not unduly burden any one of us.
Colleen, Robert and I have committed to
work together on this effort along with the
professional staff and the Next Steps
Committee but we cannot do it without
you. As I said at the beginning, educating
our children is of paramount importance.
Please help us to get that done by getting
involved, giving us feedback and working
toward a solution. We will all be better off
for your efforts. Information about the
Next Steps Committee can be found at

Teacher tenure questions
In the letter from James G.B. Martini Jr.
in the June 13 edition of the Daily Journal
concerning teacher tenure, he wants to win-
now out the incompetent and reward the
Where does the winnowing start? How
can a school board or administration evalu-
ate the proficiency of the teachers if they
are also incompetent? What guidelines will
be used for standards of proficiency? The
standardized student test results of the dis-
trict, state or nation? Will personalities or
ethnicities come into play? Everyone read-
ing this knows someone that has been
transferred, fired, hired or promoted regard-
less of qualifications.
Many schools in the same district have
high scores while others have lower scores
on standardized tests. Are the teachers that
much better in one than the other? Are the
students that much smarter in one than the
other? The best teachers can do little for a
student that has no interest in the class
work because the student has no support or
encouragement at home. Often there are
unstable conditions such as alcoholic or
abusive parents that may not even know if
the child is at home let alone doing home-
work. If a teacher has a poor student do you
penalize the teacher? If a poor teacher has a
good student do you reward the teacher? Do
you select a doctor that has the “best
record” or the doctor that is more proficient
even though he may have more patients
die? Often the “best record” doctors refer the
worse cases to the more proficient doctors?
Before painting them with a broad brush I
would like to know the specifications of the
paint to be used.

goes with they, them
and their. Instead,
meet xe, xem and xyr
which are the pro-
nouns adopted
Monday by the
Vancouver public
school system for
transgendered stu-
dents and anybody else who isn’t comfort-
able squeezing into a traditional pronoun
box. The terms are pronounced starting
with a “z” sound and rhyme with their obvi-
ously oppressive gendered predecessors.
On one hand, this addition to the lexicon
a good thing. The English language is an
ever-changing creature but doesn’t offer up
much in the way of genderless terms. This
leaves us paid scribes challenged to avoid
using “they” instead of the clunky “his or
her” to be inclusive or when one doesn’t
know if the subject is male or female. Also,
perhaps more relevant to the masses, think
of how many more points options there
will be on Scrabble and Words With Friends
thanks to these new starts-with-x word addi-
tions. Even those digging their heels in
against equality and neutrality have to get
behind the idea of vocabulary domination.
On the other hand, this attempt to be
inclusive frankly comes across a little weird
as though we are taking the made-up words
from “AClockwork Orange” and other futur-
istic literature and formally anointing them
as new entries into dictionaries and writing
The Vancouver school system is not
alone in seeking an alternative to the tradi-
tional terms for men and women. Last year,
Sweden added the word “hen” to its national
encyclopedia as its official third gender-
neutral pronoun alongside the male “han”
and female “hon.” Brighton, in Britain,
replaced gender-specific titles like “Miss”
and “Mister” with a universal “Mx” or
“Mixter” which at least looks cooler by
virtue of that “x.”
What these towns and school districts are
trying to do is admirable. Gender isn’t quite
so black and white in society anymore as
transgendered individuals rightfully find
more acceptance and others across the spec-
trum decide they feel more comfortable with
a different label. But is widespread use of
these pronouns really going to catch on?
Remember how cranky some folks got
over changing marriage licenses to from
“bride” and “groom” to “spouse one” and
“spouse two” and that wasn’t even a physi-
cal definition. This is probably the same
group that still talks about mailmen and
stewardesses. But even the most open-
minded still secretly likes to know where
others fit. Recall the old Saturday Night
Live skit about Pat, a character nobody
could identify as male or female and who
offered no clue by what he or she — xe! —
The debate on whether gender-neutral pro-
nouns should eventually be adopted across
the board, even for those who concretely
identify as male or female, won’t be settled
any time soon. Opponents will claim a hid-
den agenda. Supporters will pull out studies.
Everybody will march. The idea will either
catch fire or fizzle out. But in the end, it will
likely just remain a xe said, xe said situa-
tion. Or is that xe said, xyr said?

WASHINGTON — The U.S. economy still
isn’t healthy enough to grow at a consis-
tently strong pace without the Federal
Reserve’s help.
That was the message Fed Chair Janet
Yellen sent Wednesday at a news conference
after the central bank ended a two-day poli-
cy meeting.
Yellen made clear that despite a steadily
improving job market and signs of creeping
inflation, the Fed sees no need to raise
short-term interest rates from record lows
anytime soon.
Her remarks followed a statement from the
Fed that it would further slow the pace of its
long-term bond purchases. The bond pur-
chases have been intended to keep long-
term loan rates low. But the Fed offered no
clear signal about when it will start raising
its benchmark short-term rate.
Stock investors appeared pleased with the
message that rates would remain low. Major
indexes surged more than
half a percentage point,
with the Standard &
Poor’s 500 index reach-
ing a record. And the yield
on the 10-year Treasury
note dipped to 2.59 per-
cent from 2.65 percent
late Tuesday.
“The last thing that
Janet Yellen wants is for
the market to think she’s anywhere close to
tightening,” said David Robin, managing
director at the brokerage Newedge. “She
nailed it.”
Most economists think a rate increase is
at least a year away despite signs of rising
inflation. At her news conference, Yellen
downplayed inflation concerns.
Recent inflation figures are “noisy,” she
Her comment signaled that the Fed doesn’t
see high inflation as a risk that it would
soon need to combat by raising interest

WASHINGTON — Lawmakers expressed
disbelief Wednesday at General Motors’
explanation for why it took 11 years to
recall millions of small cars with defective
ignition switches, and also confronted its
chief executive with evidence that the com-
pany dragged its feet on a similar safety
issue in different vehicles.
CEO Mary Barra and attorney Anton
Valukas, who recently released a 315-page
investigative report into the recall, endured
skepticism and some lecturing at a House
subcommittee hearing. One member referred
to the actions of some employees described
in the report as “insane.”
Barra made her second appearance before
the committee since GM recalled 2.6 mil-
lion small cars in February. As families of
some of the people who died in crashes in
Chevrolet Cobalts and
Saturn Ions looked on,
she was again pressed on
whether GM’s commit-
ment to safety has
changed much.
Rep. Fred Upton, R-
Mich., read a 2005 e-mail
from a GM employee
whose 2006 Chevrolet
Impala stalled after its
ignition slipped out of position while she
was driving it. “I’m thinking big recall,”
the employee wrote — but that recall never
came until this week.
Upton asked Barra what GM would do with
such an e-mail if it was sent today, and Barra
said GM would take “immediate action.” GM
has issued 44 recalls covering nearly 18
million cars in the U.S. this year.

The most glaring difference between Jose
Abreu and Daniel Carbonell is $66.6 million.
The Chicago White Sox rocked the base-
ball world on Oct. 29, 2013 when they
announced the signing of Abreu to a $68
million deal. It was the largest sum ever
netted by a Cuban defector, and falling just
$10 million short of the combined con-
tracts of Yusiel Puig ($42 million) and
Yoenis Cespedes ($36 million), who were
signed in recent years.
Despite Abreu being a first baseman, the
Giants made a serious run at signing the 6-
3, 250-pound slugger in the offseason.
“Without a doubt (we were interested),”
said Bobby Evans, Giants vice president of
baseball operations. “We got pretty far
into the negotiation process with Abreu,
but there was a point where the value placed
on him by other clubs — one of which, of
course, ended up being the White Sox —
was above where we felt we could go given
what we were trying to do.”
The need the Giants ultimately addressed
in the offseason was in adding outfield
depth with the signing of free agents Tyler
Colvin and Michael Morse. Monday, the
team made splash in the Cuban market —
albeit a more modest one than had the
White Sox — by announcing the signing
of 23-year-old Daniel Carbonell to a $1.4
million major league deal.
According to Evans, Carbonell is brim-
ming with tools. And with his defensive
upside, the Giants added even more outfield
depth to their system.
“This is a very good athlete that has five
tools and the potential of developing
those tools to be an impact at the big-
league level,” Evans said. “He has speed,
power, a good arm and he can field his
While Tuesday’s transaction wire
announced Carbonell has been assigned to
Short Season affiliate Salem-Keizer, the
move is merely clerical. The 6-3, 196-
pound Carbonell is currently living in
Merida, Mexico, where he established resi-
dency in March to conduct tryouts and
showcases, Evans said.
“We’ll get him into the
States here in a few
weeks,” Evans said.
“Once he gets a visa then
he will probably go
through some getting in
baseball shape in
Arizona and then mov-
ing out into the system.”
By signing Carbonell
to a major league deal,
the Giants are potential-
ly accelerating his path through the
minors. With four years of options starting
this year, he essentially has through 2017
until he must stick on the big-league roster.
The last player to immediately sign a
major league deal with the Giants was
Conor Gillaspie — now playing the oppo-
site infield corner as Abreu with the White
Sox — though Evans described Gillaspie’s
signing as a compensation first-rounder in
2008 as, “a different animal.”
The last Cuban-born player the Giants
signed to a major league contract was
pitcher Osvaldo Fernandez in 1996.
However, San Francisco did make a run at
Abreu, if only the burgeoning superstar’s
cost hadn’t outweighed his lack of outfield
versatility, Evans said.
Landing in the American League, Abreu
has split time between first base and desig-
nated hitter. Entering play Wednesday just
one home run shy of No. 20, he has hit 15
homers as a first baseman and four as a DH.
“We went after him anyway, but there was
some disadvantage to us in that he played
first because we already had [first baseman
Brandon Belt],” Evans said. “We might
have gone further with [Abreu] if he had
been an outfielder or had he been suited to
play the outfield.”
No corresponding roster moves were
made to add Carbonell on the 40-man ros-
ter, as the Giants cleared a spot June 11 by
trading pitcher David Huff to the Yankees
for cash considerations.
A’s prospect excelling in relief
Prior to the A’s signing Cespedes in
2012, the team previously issued its
biggest contract to an international player
with the signing of right-handed pitcher
Michael Ynoa in 2008.
Then a 16-year-old out of the Dominican
Republic, Ynoa’s baseball path was some-
thing of an odyssey in being able to con-
tribute to the A’s farm system on the field.
After just three official career outings in
the Arizona League in 2010, Ynoa under-
went Tommy John surgery. His rehab
process spanned into the beginning of last
season, when he started the year in the
rotation at Low-A affiliate Beloit, but
adhering to a strict pitch count.
This season, Ynoa has converted to relief
where he has shown the dynamic stuff that
caused him to become a household name
among A’s fans once upon a time. In 16
appearances for High-A Stockton, the big
right-hander has a 5.14 ERA — a mislead-
ing statistic, as he has posted a 3.15 ERA
through May and June — allowing 22 hits
through 23 2/3 innings while striking out
36 against 13 walks.
“The stuff is there,” Stockton manager
Ryan Christenson said. “It’s more a men-
tality of just getting comfortable with the
role he is in right now as a short reliever. ”
Ynoa made his final appearance of the
first half of the California League season
June 12 at San Jose’s Municipal Park
against the minor-league Giants. Through
two innings of work, he soldiered through
a rough sixth inning in which he entered
the game with two on and no outs. He sur-
rendered three hits as San Jose scored all
its runs amid a 3-0 win in the inning.
However, Ynoa rebounded to fire an
impressive seventh inning. Sitting com-
fortably around 95 mph with his fastball,
he issued a leadoff walk before striking out
the side.
“Everybody’s known that the stuff is
there,” Christenson said. “When the guy
can throw up to 97 (mph), has the curve-
ball, and then his changeup has been phe-
nomenal … when he has that mix; the stuff
is there. I think he’s getting comfortable
with not having to pace himself anymore
as a starter. And I think he is completely
confident that his arm is healthy and that
he can let it loose whenever he wants.”
Giants prospect
shines at All-Star Game
Steven Okert was the only representative
of Giants High-A affiliate San Jose to
appear in Tuesday’s All-Star Game in
Wilmington, Delaware between the
California League and the Carolina League.
But the left-handed closer made it count,
earning the save with one inning of work
in a 3-2 California League win.
Okert entered in the ninth with two on
and no outs to retire three straight Carolina
League batters to close it out. He struck out
two, including Nationals prospect Shawn
Pleffner to end it.
Okert currently paces the California
League with 19 saves. He is 1-2 with a 1.57
ERA, and has struck out 53 against 11 walks
through 34 1/3 innings.
Giants sign Cuban; A’s prospect back on track
Michael Ynoa, signed by the A’s in 2008 as a
16-year-old, is back on the mound
following rehab from Tommy John surgery.

CHICAGO — A week ago, the San
Francisco Giants had the best record in base-
ball, a near double-digit division lead and
they were piling up the wins seemingly with
But manager Bruce Bochy knew a rough
stretch was coming.
“I don’t care how good you are, you’re
gonna have your ups and downs,” he said.
“You’re gonna have your hiccups, your
bumps in the road and you know it.
“What’s important is how you deal with
What the Giants are dealing with now is a
five-game losing streak.
Ace Tim Hudson was roughed up for seven
runs — serving up homers to Cuban rookie
sensation Jose Abreu and Adam Dunn — and
the Chicago White Sox swept the brief two-
game series with a 7-6 victory on Wednesday.
Abreu reached 20 homers in his 58th game,
the third fewest in major league history
behind Wally Berger (51 games) and Mark
McGwire (56 games).
“I wasn’t aware of this happening, but it’s
a good thing,” Abreu said through a transla-
tor. “I welcome it and I want to continue to
help the team win. That’s what it’s all about
right now.”
White Sox ace Chris Sale (6-1) labored,
giving up three runs on eight hits through
six-plus innings for Chicago. Ronald
Belisario, pitched the final 1 2/3 innings to
earn his seventh save.
Chicago now has won
two straight following a
four-game skid.
“Our guys, they’re
tough,” manager Robin
Ventura said. “They just
keep grinding. We know
we didn’t play well
against (Kansas City), but
put it behind you and you
keep going. If you want to look in the
rearview mirror and wallow on that, you’re
going to get beat a lot more. These guys
seem to stay with it and grind it out.”
Hudson (7-3) allowed seven runs and 12
hits in 4 2/3 innings, his shortest outing
this season. He entered the game with an
MLB-leading 1.81 ERA.
“It’s frustrating, no doubt about it,”
Hudson said. “The guys, they played their
butts off all day behind and fought right there
‘til the end. You score six runs on a day I
pitch, we should win these games.
“For me, that’s the frustrating part.”
Abreu’s liner into the left field bullpen put
Chicago ahead 2-0 in the first.
Tyler Flowers singled up the middle with
the bases loaded in the fourth to drive in two
runs and extend Chicago’s lead to 4-0.
The Giants cut it to 4-2 in the fifth when
Buster Posey singled in a run and Pablo
Sandoval hit a sacrifice fly, but Dunn’s homer
to right against Hudson with none out in the
bottom of the inning put Chicago up 7-2.
“Obviously, the big blow was that homer
from Dunn,” Hudson said. “I just didn’t get
that pitch where I wanted to and elevated a
four-seamer. It wasn’t quite high enough and
ran out over the plate.”
Sale was replaced by Jake Petricka with
none out in the seventh after Juan Perez sin-
gled and Gregor Blanco walked. The Giants
loaded the bases, but got only one run, on
Posey’s sac fly to make it 7-3.
Blanco doubled in a run and Hunter Pence
scored one on a fielder’s choice in the eighth
off Zach Putnam, the third of four Chicago
relievers. The Giants added their final run in
the ninth on Colvin’s sacrifice fly.
“These guys didn’t lay down,” Bochy said.
“They came back and fought hard today. We’ll
come out of this. You hate going through
‘em, but it’s all about being resilient and this
is a resilient club. We’ve gone through some
tough losses.
“We faced two very good pitchers here. We
needed our guys to be on top of their game
and, unfortunately, they weren’t .
Not es: Dunn’s homer was his 452nd,
tying him for 35th with Carl Yastrzemski. .
Sale made his first career start against San
Francisco. He hit two batters in the game
after hitting only one all season. The game
started 12 minutes late because of rain. ...
Giants OF Angel Pagan (lower back) was out
of the lineup for a third straight game and is
listed as day-to-day. ... Posey was back
behind the plate. He was at DH on Tuesday
night after taking a foul off mask on Sunday.
... The White Sox open an 11-game road trip
on Thursday night at Minnesota. Chicago’s
Jose Quintana (3-7) is scheduled to face
Minnesota’s Yohan Pino (0-0), who will
make his MLB debut. The Giants’ next game
is at Arizona on Friday. Tim Lincecum (5-4)
will face Josh Collmenter (4-4).

RIO DE JANEIRO — Defending champion
Spain, the dominant global football power
for the past six years, was eliminated from
World Cup contention Wednesday with a 2-0
loss to Chile.
Spain’s famed passing game failed against
a high-tempo, tenacious Chile team, its era
ending in the storied Maracana Stadium filled
mostly with noisy Chilean supporters.
Eduardo Vargas tricked goalkeeper Iker
Casillas into diving the wrong way, then
shot into an unguarded goal in the 20th
minute. Charles Aranguiz scored in the 43rd
when the ball landed at his feet after Casillas
punched out a free kick.
“I only ask fans for forgiveness, we did
everything we could,” said Casillas, who
lifted the World Cup trophy four years ago.
Spain’s second loss, after a 5-1 rout by the
Netherlands, ended any hope of advancing.
Chile and the Netherlands will both make it
to the knockout stage, regardless of who
wins the game between them.
Spain won the European Championship in
2008 and 2012, in addition to the 2010
World Cup.
Perhaps the Euro 2012 final was the foot-
balling high point of the era: A4-0 disman-
tling of Italy on a similarly balmy evening
in Kiev, Ukraine
Spain came to Brazil with a very similar
— but older — team to the one that won
those titles. They added Brazilian-born
striker Diego Costa, but he failed to score a
goal and was substituted in both matches.
“We have no excuses,” said Spain coach
Vicente del Bosque. “We were too slow, timid
from the start today. It’s a sad day for all of
the players. Time to think about the future.”
Spain’s “tiki-taka” style of play — keep-
ing the ball for long stretches with short
passes, and only shooting when you had a
clear opening — had not been working as
well in recent years. Brazil defeated Spain 3-
0 in last summer’s Confederations Cup, a
warm-up for the World Cup.
The stars who had made the system go are
still on the team, but they’ve clearly lost
some speed and their connections haven’t
been as sharp. Barcelona midfielder Xavi
Hernandez, who often delivered the key
pass, didn’t play Wednesday.
Spain became the third straight European
defending World Cup champion to flop in the
group stage. France in 2002 and Italy four
years ago also failed to advance, or even win
a match.
Badly needing a win, del Bosque stayed
loyal to captain Casillas despite the veteran
goalkeeper’s errors against the Dutch.
But pillars of Spain’s title runs, Hernandez
and Barcelona teammate Gerard Pique were
left out, despite 194 combined appearances.
Xabi Alonso probably should have joined
them. His agonizing first half typified
Spain’s problems and his errors led to both
And Alonso’s selection left a younger ver-
sion of his former self, Atletico Madrid’s
Koke, on the bench until the logical change
was made at half time.
Alonso gave away the ball to Alexis
Sanchez to start a move down Chile’s right
wing by Arturo Vidal and Aranguiz, leading
to Vargas’ score. Alonso trailed behind the
play and put his hands to his head.
Alonso was booked in the 40th before
conceding another foul, on Sanchez, three
minutes later 22 yards (meters) out.
When Casillas punched away Sanchez’s
curling free-kick, Aranguiz trapped the ball
then flicked a rising shot spinning away
from the goalkeeper’s reach.
Chile eliminates Spain with 2-0 victory
Chile's Eduardo Vargas celebrates after scoring a goal against Spain during their 2014 World
Cup Group B soccer match at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro. The loss eliminates
Spain, with one game left in group play.
Netherlands beat Australia 3-2
PORTOALEGRE, Brazil — Asecond-half by
strike by substitute Memphis Depay gave
Netherlands a 3-2 comeback victory over
Australia in an absorbing World Cup Group B
match on Wednesday.
The result puts Netherlands into a strong
position to advance to the last 16 with two
wins, including the opening 5-1 rout of defend-
ing champion Spain. It almost surely puts
Australia out of contention with two defeats.
The Dutch opened the scoring in the 20th
minute through a Arjen Robben solo effort but
Australia responded seconds later, with Tim
Cahill’s stunning volley making it 1-1 before
the halftime break.
Australia took a surprise lead with a penalty
after Daryl Janmaat handled the ball but Robin
Van Persie made it 2-2 after collecting the ball
in space on the edge of the penalty area and
shooting low.
Mandzukic scores pair as
Croatia beats Cameroon 4-0
MANAUS, Brazil — Mario Mandzukic scored
two goals Wednesday to keep Croatia in the mix
at the World Cup with a 4-0 win over 10-man
Cameroon, which cannot now advance from the
group stage.
Mandzukic, who returned to the team at the
Arena da Amazonia after sitting out the opening
loss to Brazil through suspension, headed in a
corner from Danijel Pranjic in the 61st minute
and then knocked in a rebound in the 73rd of the
Group Agame.
Ivan Perisic also scored one goal and made
another for Ivica Olic.
Cameroon was reduced to 10 men after mid-
fielder Alex Song was given a red card for elbow-
ing Mandzukic in the back in an off-the-ball
incident in the 40th minute.
The team started without the injured Samuel
Eto’o, the team’s best player.
Rampaging Chile World
Cup fans bust into Rio venue
RIO DE JANEIRO — Nearly 100 rampaging
Chilean fans broke through a security check-
point at the Maracana stadium on Wednesday,
rushing through a large media room and break-
ing down walls as they tried to force their way
into the sold-out Spain vs. Chile match at the
World Cup.
The red-shirted supporters, mostly young
men, surged through the media center under-
neath the stands, shouting and shoving their
way past journalists and TV crews toward a
corridor they apparently thought would lead to
the grandstands.
To get to the corridor, the fans broke down a
temporary wall in a corner of the room, send-
ing metal lockers crashing to the ground,
according to Associated Press journalists.
They then rushed back down the corridor in
the other direction, smashing other parts of
the same wall down onto media work tables
and television screens.
Security at the Maracana — where the World
Cup final will be held July 13 — were slow to
react to the mass break-in less than an hour
before kickoff. They eventually contained the
fans in a section of the corridor around 15
minutes after they first forced their way in.
The Rio de Janeiro state security secretariat,
which oversees security forces, said in a state-
ment that 85 fans were detained. FIFAsaid it
was at least 85. Some were marched away in a
line by security officials, their arms resting on
the shoulders of the people in front of them.
An official with the Rio security secretariat
said that the detained fans would spend the
night in jail — and then likely be notified by
Brazil’s Federal Police, who enforce immigra-
tion laws, that they must leave the country
within three days.

ON CALL 24/7
By Sean Conway
Even if it doesn’t feel like June in many
parts of the country, the longest day of the
year is just around the corner. In my patch
of Rhode Island, chilly days are still not
uncommon, yet the plants in my garden
don’t seem to mind a bit.
In fact, the explosion of growth over the
last few weeks is a reminder of just how
much plants respond to increased light. You
may have noticed that your houseplants are
starting to respond to the lengthening days
as well. Most begin a period of active
growth during late spring.
In the garden, the cool temperatures of
spring produce firm, compact growth and
provide most plants with a greater toler-
ance for the sun’s increasing strength.
Plants that will need shade in a couple of
weeks can handle full sun conditions right
Just like people with fair skin, plants
need to acclimate to strong sunlight to pre-
vent burning. Garden plants do this by
breaking dormancy early in the spring
when temperatures are still cool and the sun
is less intense.
Houseplants, on the other hand, should
be acclimated slowly to the brighter condi-
tions outdoors. Most houseplants love
being outside and will respond favorably
by putting out a lot of new growth. Just be
careful not to make the transition from
inside to outside too abrupt. All plants need
a chance to adjust; even those that are used
to being kept in a sun-filled window will
need to acclimate to the sun’s intensity
when moved outside.
Every year, when I move my houseplants
out for the summer, I repot them.
Refreshing the soil and providing a judi-
cious pruning of both roots and branches
allows me to keep most of them in the same
pots from year to year. I have had some for
over 20 years, and this yearly ritual main-
tains them in excellent health and keeps
them looking good.
When you relocate your plants outdoors,
start by placing them in a shaded spot out
of direct sunlight for about a week.
Gradually move those that require some sun
into brighter locations.
Most foliage plants prefer to remain in
the shade or, at the most, in filtered sun for
the summer. An east or north location is
best for them or under the shade of a large
Flowering plants tend to require more
light, and some, like potted hibiscus and
dwarf citrus trees, will be happy with full
sun all day once they get acclimated to
being outdoors.
I avoid placing my plants directly on
bare ground. I find that setting them on the
ground can impede drainage and provide
easy access to many unwanted pests.
Instead, elevate your plants either by plac-
ing them on plant stands or positioning
bricks under the pots. I place my larger
pots on 24-inch by 24-inch pieces of patio
stone that I bought at a construction yard.
In addition to the increased light they
receive outdoors, your houseplants will
also benefit from increased humidity and air
movement. If you keep your plants on a
patio, graveled area or other hard surface,
hose the area down occasionally. It will
help increase humidity. In between rain-
storms, hosing off the foliage is another
way to keep your plants happy.
It won’t take long before you notice the
change in your plants. Mine begin their
annual growth spurts a short time after
being moved outside for the summer.
Once new growth begins, I make sure I
pay attention to watering and fertilizing.
Plants in active growth need regular feed-
ing. Some of mine get a balanced water-sol-
uble plant food regularly throughout the
growing season. Others that grow more
slowly get a top dressing of sterile com-
post that breaks down slowly over the
course of the summer.
Summer outdoors will do wonders for houseplants
Houseplants respond favorably to sunlight, humidity and fresh air when put outside in the
summer. It’s important to acclimate them when you first take them outdoors, and repotting
is also a good idea.

Making a yard and a community
more beautiful begins at the curb. But
that narrow space between sidewalk
and street — sometimes called a boule-
vard, median, hellstrip, parkway,
verge or tree belt — is a gardening
For starters, it’s probably owned by
the municipality but falls to the home-
owner to maintain. So the first step in
caring for it is to sort out what local
rules allow.
“You need to go to the city’s website
if there are any questions about who
owns what,” said Evelyn Hadden,
author of the new book “Hellstrip
Gardening” (Timber Press). “The zon-
ing laws should be posted online.”
“Some cities have regulations where
there can only be lawns there. Some
say there can’t be vegetables, but
allow some kind of lawn alternative,”
she said. “Some communities change
their rules when people start growing
gardens and the community gets
behind them.”
Curb appeal can increase property
values for the whole neighborhood,
Hadden said. “Curbside gardeners are
pretty generous that way. They’re
working for the benefit of everybody. ”
Even seedy-looking parcels can
become natural welcome mats when
integrated with front yards. Curbside
spaces are often heavily trafficked,
however, making them tough to culti-
vate. The ground is hard-packed, and
plants can be crushed underfoot. Rocks
might add character to the landscape
but will dent car doors if placed too
near the curb. Tall, dense foliage can
be a traffic hazard, preventing passing
motorists from seeing pets and chil-
Here are some tips for creating a
well-tended “hellstrip”:
• Talk with neighbors before getting
started. “The tension will come when
somebody complains,” Hadden said.
• Be aware of sight lines, especially
at intersections. Drivers may have
trouble turning safely if something
tall is in the way.
• Go with perennials rather than
annuals, said Fred Rozumalski, a land-
scape architect with Barr Engineering
Co. in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
“Then the soil is only worked once and
it’s more secure,” he said. “Dirt won’t
run into the street, clogging gutters
and storm sewers.”
• Avoid growing vegetables at road-
side sites because of pollution,
Rozumalski said. “They collect elevat-
ed levels of road salt, lead from gaso-
line and copper from brake linings. I
certainly wouldn’t want to eat any food
that came off a boulevard.”
• Tree planting is the city’s job, he
said. “I’ve seen people make bad
choices, planting trees like sugar
maples that are difficult to maintain
and push up sidewalks. Shrubs should
be kept low, no more than 18 inches in
• Be cautious about displaying yard
art, Rozumalski said. “You don’t want
to distract drivers. It’s probably better
if you put those kinds of things deeper
into the yard.”
Hellstrips: The challenge
lies beyond the sidewalk
Decor inspired by creepy crawlies
By Kim Cook
Many would agree with naturalist David Attenborough that
nature “is the greatest source of visual beauty.”
And that includes the creepy crawlies: From snakes’ skins
to the intricate physiology of the smallest bug, we can’t help
but be impressed by the beauty of creatures that buzz, flit and
Artists and designers have long used insects, reptiles and
other small animals as inspiration. Let’s grab our nets and
catch a few of the most intriguing recent examples:
In his “Pheromone” series, artist and designer Christopher
Marley of Salem, Oregon, marries his passion for crisp
design with a fascination for insects, sea organisms and birds
by arranging them simply yet artfully on plain backgrounds
in shadow boxes. A stripey mountain kingsnake seems
poised to meander north of the frame in which he resides. A
prion urchin looks like a tiny alien spacecraft, sprung from
the confines of the ocean floor. Dozens of beetles are arranged
like the iridescent squadron of an entomological army.
Butterflies form kaleidoscopic prisms.
The displays are an arresting mix of science and art. The
specimens, which died of natural or incidental causes, come
from museums, breeders and zoos around the world, Marley
“Sharing the thrill of discovery is one of the most driving
aspects of my work,” he says. (www.pheromonedesign.com)
New York artist George Venson creates birds, snakes and
octopuses in vibrant, painterly hues, and then arranges the
images on wallpaper. He wants the walls to “come alive,” and
there’s a sense of movement in each design. Snakes slither
through backgrounds of ink, acid green or ruby. (www.vout-
sa.com )
In Osborne & Little’s exotic Komodo wallpaper collection,
holographic foil lizards skitter across a black, silver or gold
background. (www.osborneandlittle.com)
Los Angeles designer Paul Marra’s Snake Lantern forges
two sinuous creatures into the form of a steel and brass pen-
dant lantern. (www.deringhall.com)
Sculptor Mike Libby once found a dead beetle and got to
thinking about how it had moved. He began dissecting and
experimenting — at the same time taking apart an old wrist-
watch, and using those pieces — until he’d come up with the
first of an ongoing collection of fantastical steampunk arach-
nids, bees and other creepy crawlies. He uses real insect car-
casses and bits from watches, vintage typewriters and old
sewing machines to fashion carapaces, wings, antennae and
pincers for his mechanical menagerie. (www.insectlabstu-

many additional slots they think they
could fill. There are 22 Title 5 programs in
San Mateo County, including the San
Mateo County Office of Education that
requested 50 additional preschool slots,
said Nancy Magee, administrator for board
support and community relations at the
county Office of Education. Educators and
district officials throughout the county
have been advocating for expanded transi-
tional kindergarten programming.
“We are excited about the state’s commit-
ment to our youngest learners,” Molly
Barton, assistant superintendent of student
services for the San Mateo-Foster City
Elementary School District, said in an
email. “We will wait until the governor
signs the budget and we receive more infor-
mation from the Department of Education.”
The plan, part of the 2014-15 budget
passed by the Legislature Sunday, includes
an early childhood education package that
proposes $268 million to increase access
and improve quality in existing programs.
It establishes an ongoing $50 million
annual grant to support quality improve-
ments in the state’s preschool program-
ming and provides $35 million for profes-
sional development and facilities, while
creating 11,500 full-day spaces in state
preschool for low-income 4-year-olds.
State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, is
one of the senators who introduced the
Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2014, which
would have put $198 million a year into
allowing all 4-year-olds to attend the new
grade level. While the act was not part of
the finalized budget now on Gov. Jerry
Brown’s desk awaiting his signature, it had
called for an additional 46,000 transition-
al kindergarten slots per year over five
Hill is disappointed his early education
programming won’t be enacted, but is
grateful for what additional programs will
be added.
“Politics is about the possible,” Hill
said. “This is the possible and practical in
this case. … Everyone agrees on the bene-
fit of early childhood education.”
Local reaction
Others are pleased to see state legislators
invest in more early childhood education,
especially for low-income families, but
hope at some point there are additional
state resources to ensure all 3- and 4-year-
olds in California receive high-quality pre-
school and transitional kindergarten, said
Alisa MacAvoy, San Mateo County School
Boards Association president and trustee
on the Redwood City Elementary School
District board. Those at the association
published a position paper advocating for
universal preschool in January and has
been vocal about supporting early child-
hood education.
“We have many students on waitlists for
affordable preschool in Redwood City, ”
MacAvoy wrote in an email. “If there is
additional money for state preschool, we
will be able to provide additional spots in
preschool for 3- and 4-year-olds in order
for them to be successful in kindergarten
and beyond. High-quality early-childhood
education is important to help close the
achievement gap.”
A bit more disappointed is Seth
Rosenblatt, trustee on the San Carlos
Elementary School District board, who
believes the state government missed an
opportunity to make a structural change in
the public school system.
“It would have been a really bolder state-
ment about the fact we need to change the
structure of K-12 education that hasn’t
changed much in a century,” he said.
The concept of transitional kindergarten
came about as part of the state’s
Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010 and
was created to serve younger students with
birthdays between September and
December. It is currently available only to
4-year-olds whose birthdays fall too late in
the calendar year to be eligible for kinder-
garten. Students aren’t required to start
school until age 6.
That transformed into this year’s
Kindergarten Readiness Act that would
have been phased in over a five-year period
beginning during the 2015-16 school
year. During the phase-in, 46,000 4-year-
olds would be added each year to the
Transitional Kindergarten for All program,
eventually totaling 350,000 additional
children eligible for transitional kinder-
garten. California has three major educa-
tional programs for preschool-aged chil-
dren: state preschool, federal Head Start
and transitional kindergarten. The act
would have combined part-day state pre-
school for 4-year-olds with transitional
kindergarten. The program would eventual-
ly provide transitional for all 4-year-olds,
with an extra year of Head Start or Strong
Start for children living in poverty.
Benefits of early education
Mounting and undeniable research shows
starting school earlier helps students suc-
ceed later in the basic concepts of math and
language, Alejandro Hogan, superintend-
ent of the South San Francisco Unified
School District, said in a prepared state-
“If students arrive to kindergarten with-
out an established foundation and under-
standing of basic concepts and classroom
expectations, they are starting their aca-
demic careers already behind many of their
peers and it can be difficult of those stu-
dents to catch up,” he said.
Early Edge California, a nonprofit
organization working to ensure all chil-
dren have the early experiences necessary
to be successful learners by the end of
third-grade, setting them on a path to col-
lege and career readiness, co-sponsored the
bill with State Superintendent Tom
Torlakson. Its president, Deborah Kong,
said she appreciates the Legislature’s lead-
ership in making this down payment
toward the future of the state’s youngest
“The sad fact is that California needs to
be doing more for our low-income children
and families. This budget deal is a down
payment on our future, but we must see this
commitment through,” Kong said in a pre-
pared statement. “We urge Gov. Brown to
sign the budget proposal and set California
on the path to preparing all of California’s
children birth to age 5 for success — start-
ing with the children who need it most.”
Early Edge’s director of communica-
tions, Molly Tafoya, said it’s her under-
standing that given the fiscal constraints
of the budget process, some of the pre-
school and transitional kindergarten pro-
gramming had to be cut.
“What’s really exciting about this budg-
et deal is there is an intent to commit to
serving all low-income 4-year-olds in the
coming years,” she said. “At the end of the
day, the ultimate goal is to get these chil-
dren into a high-quality program.”
This is a significant first step, said Ted
Lempert, trustee on the San Mateo County
Board of Education and president of the
national research and advocacy organiza-
tion Children Now.
“I think we were all hoping for more sig-
nificant investment in early education,” he
The budget agreement will be sent to
Gov. Jerry Brown for his signature at the
end of the month.

vital with the rise in school shootings
and keeping in mind the student who
attempted to bomb Hillsdale High
School five years ago, Police Chief
Susan Manheimer said.
“Think of all the things we deal with
on a school campus, because they are
really ground zero for everything
going on with a kid. From bullying to
social Internet stuff to all of the gang
stuff to drugs, everything that they
get,” Manheimer said. “And just con-
sequence, kids don’t understand conse-
quences. Who better than police to
share with them what consequences
Nine years ago, an officer was
assigned to San Mateo High School
and since then it went from being one
of the least safe schools in the district
to one of the safest, Manheimer said.
The program also increased gradua-
tion rates and helped eradicate gangs
that used to have a very strong pres-
ence at school, Manheimer said.
The discussion to expand the pro-
gram began three years ago and it’s
exciting to see it come to fruition, said
Molly Barton, assistant superintend-
ent of student services for San Mateo-
Foster City Elementary School
“It takes some work to move away
from the punitive model and more into
the restorative justice model. So we’re
really excited about that,” Barton said.
“It’s to catch potential problems
sooner, to intervene sooner with dan-
gerous behaviors. I also think we have
a lot of children that are growing up in
very different environments where
they don’t see the police department as
their friend but as their enemy. And
this provides them with an opportuni-
ty really to get to expose kids to city-
wide resources.”
The school districts will reimburse
the city almost $650,000 to fund the
three officers for two years, according
to a staff report. Each officer will be
assigned to a high school and its feed-
er middle school, according to a staff
San Mateo’s current school resource
officer, Tracey Unga, will continue to
oversee San Mateo High and Bayside
Middle School. One new officer will be
assigned to cover Abbot Middle
School and Hillsdale High and the
other will be assigned to Borel Middle
School and Aragon High School.
“To get a school resource officer in
each public middle and high school
gives us the edge on education and
awareness. Not just for the students,
but for the teachers and staff and the
parents that deal with the students.
Believe it or not, there is (gang)
recruiting that goes on in our middle
schools of more naive kids who may
not have the social defense mecha-
nisms. So not only are we going to be
there to protect our kids, we’re also
going to be there to give them those
skills,” Manheimer said.
Gang resistance
Each of the approximate 3,000
sixth-graders in the district must com-
plete the Gang Resistance Education
and Training, or GREAT, program,
Barton said.
Manheimer said GREAT is critical
because gang intelligence and infor-
mation indicates middle school-aged
children are targeted for recruitment
into gangs. Teaching the program will
be a primary responsibility for the
school officers. They will also patrol
the campuses and routes to and from
school, check in after school and
intervene should any fights or prob-
lems arise, Manheimer said.
“[The GREAT program] really goes
to the heart of bullying and gang
behavior and teaching our kids how to
say no and providing alternatives for
them so that we can do this early on in
a prevention mode rather than having
to deal with them once they’ve made
bad choices,” Manheimer said.
City support
The City Council was unanimous in
providing two additional school
resource officers.
“They’re dealing with a lot of issues
today. There’s bullying and gangs and
I think they need this resource. They
need to know there’s someone to go
to,” Vice Mayor Maureen Freschet
Councilman David Lim said his chil-
dren attend city schools and having an
officer on campus is reassuring.
“You make the kids feel better know-
ing you’re there, you enhance the qual-
ity of education knowing that you’re
there, you make the parents feel better
knowing that you’re there,” Lim said.
Disaster preparedness
Manheimer said police have stepped
up countywide disaster preparedness
and efforts to prevent violence at
Most of the recent national shoot-
ings began on middle and high school
campuses and Hillsdale High’s bomb
scare highlighted the need for school
resource officers, Manheimer said. In
2009, Alexander Youshock, then 17,
went onto the Hillsdale High campus
carrying a chain saw in a soft guitar
case and a tactical vest outfitted with
10 homemade pipe bombs. He
planned to kill three teachers and
exploded two bombs before being
tackled by school staff. No one was
seriously injured and Youshock, who
was diagnosed schizophrenic, was
convicted of attempted murder.
School resource officers will help
ensure students are kept safe, educated
and deter a life of crime, Manheimer
“I think what we’re able to do now is
touch on all the kids and all the par-
ents and those who most influence
them, which are their teachers and
staff,” Manheimer said. “And really do
it on a basis where the schools and the
police are working together trying to
figure out for each and every kid what
they need. And that’s a tremendous

along West Perimeter began on Dec.
28, 2010.
“Their (the plaintiff’s) action is still
time-barred even under a most gener-
ous interpretation of the statute of lim-
itations,” the ruling stated.
The district was very pleased with
the ruling and is entitled to recover its
costs on the appeal.
“In their review, the court itemized
the multiple public notices that
described the tree trimming/removal
process-board agendas,
board reports, public hear-
ings, newspaper announce-
ments and Web postings,
including the public project
manual that identified every
single tree to be trimmed or
removed,” Chancellor Ron
Galatolo said in a prepared
statement. “In doing so, we
believe the court validated
all the actions the college
district properly took to
inform the public about this
matter. As we have stated
many times before, the tree
trimming, which was part of
the campuswide improve-
ments at College of San
Mateo, was undertaken to
remove the dead, diseased
and nonnative trees on cam-
pus which had been identified
as a potential fire hazard.”
The district removed the
trees under the supervision
of an arborist as part of a
woodland/wildfire manage-
ment program, said Barbara
Christensen, director of community
and government relations for the dis-
trict. Trees were removed for the fol-
lowing reasons: 48 percent were a fire
hazard; 30 percent were diseased,
dying or dead; 7 percent were imping-
ing on native trees; 3 percent had poor
structural integrity; and 11 percent
opened up scenic corridors.
“This involved removing and prun-
ing non-native and highly flammable
species such as eucalyptus and diseased
or dead trees, as well as general ground
cleanup to mitigate ‘fire ladder’
effects,” Christensen previously said,
adding the clearing allows native
species, like oaks, to grow.
In light of the ruling, there is no
need to examine the district’s related
claims that the Citizens For a Green
San Mateo failed to properly exhaust
their administrative remedies, as well
as the issues relating to supplemental
review, the ruling stated.
“Similarly, we do not reach the dis-
trict’s claim of mootness, which is
based on the fact that the challenged
tree removal activities have long since
been complete, and the trees have been
or will be replaced in accordance with
the mitigation measures set forth in
the initial study and mitigated nega-
tive declaration,” it stated.

Brandt-Hawley could not be reached for

53 Command for Fido
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You will not get a lot
of cooperation today. Be prepared to do as much as
you can on your own, without worrying about what
others are up to.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — You will get along well
with others today. Share your hopes and dreams to
elicit some interesting suggestions. This would be an
ideal time for a getaway.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Money matters appear
favorable. Financial aid will appear from an
unexpected source. An intriguing offer will lay the
groundwork for a change of direction.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Resist the inclination
to give up when faced with an obstacle. Don’t let
stubbornness lead to a missed opportunity. You will
discover that things aren’t as difficult as you thought.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t get flustered by the
changes taking place lately. Things will calm down in
good time. Ride out the storm and show maturity and
leadership. After all, the situation is only temporary.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You will be rewarded
for your hard work. Your skills and common sense
are valuable qualities, so make sure you are
available to attend as many career functions or get-
togethers as possible.

has become too predictable, try doing something
new. Consider learning a new skill or language, or
look for valuable information that could spark an
interesting endeavor.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Bring your feelings
out into the open. Let those close to you know
what is distressing you. The longer you postpone

2010-2015 Consolidated Plan and
2014-15 Action Plan Substantial Amendments
A. Introduction
The City of San Mateo is submitting amendments to both the 2010-15 Consolidated Plan and
the 2014-15 Annual Action Plan that was originally submitted to the Department of Housing and
Urban Development (HUD) in May 2014. All of the elements of the City’s approved 2010-2015
Consolidated Plan and 2014-15 Action Plan are hereby incorporated into this Substantial
The City of San Mateo is submitting the Consolidated Plan amendment to expand the geo-
graphic targeting of HOME funds to include contiguous jurisdictions in addition to city wide tar-
geting. HOME regulations 24 CFR 92.201(a)(2) permit entitlement communities to invest its
HOME funds in a project outside of its boundaries if that project will serve its own population as
well as that of the contiguous jurisdiction where the project is located. The amendment provides
the City with the opportunity to invest HOME funds in eligible housing activities physically locat-
ed in contiguous jurisdictions when they will benefit San Mateo resident and address needs,
strategies, and goals identified in the City’s Consolidated Plan.
The City is submitting the Annual Action Plan Amendment to allow for consideration of funding of
a 66 unit affordable senior apartment complex which was not identified in the original Action
B. Community Participation, Public Comment and Contact Information
In accordance with the City’s Community Participation Plan, this Substantial Amendment re-
quires a 30-day comment period, which will begin on June 19th, 2014 with this document posted
to the City’s website at www.cityofsanmateo.org/conplan, noticed in The San Mateo Daily Jour-
nal and distributed to all City libraries and parks where the community could review and provide
comment. A public hearing will be held at the City Council meeting on Monday July 21, 2014 at
San Mateo City Hall, 330 West 20th Ave., San Mateo, CA.

C. Environmental Review
An Environmental Assessment was prepared for this project dated January 2014, resulting in a
finding of No Significant Impact.
D. HOME Funded Projects
The definition of a Substantial Change for the Consolidated Plan in the City’s Community Partici-
pation Plan includes one that adds a program or project; a substantial change for an Action Plan
includes the addition of a new project or activity not described in the Action Plan. Since this
amendment may result in the addition of a new project it is subject to public review.
In the 2014-15 Annual Action Plan, the City budgeted $359,570 in HOME funds for Housing
Projects but had not yet identified a project. This amendment will allow the City of San Mateo to
consider commitment of those HOME funds to a project that provides for 66 senior housing units
in the city of Foster City. The City of San Mateo would not typically fund projects outside its city
limits, but approximately $235,000 must be committed by July 2014 or they will be lost and re-
captured by HUD. These funds were previously committed for another project that returned the
funds to the City and no other eligible project has been identified. Given the extreme need for af-
fordable senior housing in our region, this will allow San Mateo residents access to much need-
ed housing

2015 Annual Action Plan respectively:

Area and Community Description
HOME Funding
HOME funds may be used City wide to support affordable housing. The City of San Mateo,
at its discretion, may consider the targeting of HOME funds to include projects in communi-
ties that are contiguous to the City of San Mateo. HOME regulations 24 CFR 92.201(a)(2)
permit entitlement communities to invest its HOME funds in a project outside of its bounda-
ries if that project will serve its own population as well as that of the contiguous jurisdiction
where the project is located.

Encourage New Housing Construction
Foster Square Senior Housing
DH 2 This program outcome is affordability for the purpose of providing decent
affordable housing.
City Council will consider funding 66 senior housing units, 65 1- bedroom units, and 1 2-
bedroom managers unit. The senior housing units are part of the Foster City Square project
adjacent to its City Hall. The 66 housing units will be included in a 4 story building with the
ground floor consisting of meeting rooms, office space, computer lab, laundry, fitness room,
and other amenities and approximately 10,000 sq. ft. of retail space. The second floor will
have a landscaped terrace available for private tenant use as well as residential units, and
the third and fourth floors will be all residential units. This project has commitments for
funding from the County of San Mateo and the City of Foster City, as well as a commitment
of Low Income Tax Credits. City of San Mateo residents will be included in a local prefer-
ence plan for occupancy in the project.

COMBINED NOTICE of Finding of No Significant Impact
and Intent to Request Release of Funds
June 18, 2014
City of San Mateo
Community Development Department
Neighborhood Improvement & Housing Division
Attn: Chris Wahl, (650) 522-7229
These Notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for activities to be
considered by the City of San Mateo.
REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS. On or about July 3, 2014 the City of San Mateo Com-
munity Development Department will submit a request to the U.S. Department of Housing & Ur-
ban Development (HUD) for the release of funds for the amount not to exceed $425,000 from
the HOME Program, formally known as Title II of the National Affordable Housing Act 1990. The
project is identified as Foster Square Senior Housing located in the city of Foster City.
The funds are to be considered for use to assist in paying for construction costs associated with
development of 66 new affordable residential housing units on the site. The total housing project
will consist of 66 units in a 4-story structure, and the affordability breakdown provides units be-
tween 30% Area Median Income (AMI)and 50% AMI. Total project cost for the 66 affordable
units is estimated at $28 million. The City Council will review the funding request for this project
at its regular meeting on July 21, 2014.
FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT. The City of San Mateo made the decision to utilize
HUD funding for this project after the San Mateo County Housing Authority had already obtained
release of funds approval from HUD. Therefore, the City of San Mateo has reviewed the Coun-
ty’s HUD approved EA Report and is adopting that report as its own. The City of San Mateo has
determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. There-
fore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of
1969 is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review
Record (ERR) on file at the City of San Mateo, 330 West 20th Avenue, San Mateo, CA 94403
and may be examined or copied weekdays 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
agency disagreeing with this determination or wishing to comment on the project may submit
written comments to the City of San Mateo. All comments received by July 2, 2014 will be con-
sidered by the City of San Mateo prior to submission of a request for release of funds. Com-
ments should specify which Notice they are addressing.
RELEASE OF FUNDS. The City of San Mateo certifies to the U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development that Sandra Council, in her capacity as Certifying Officer, consents to ac-
cept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in re-
lation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s acceptance of the certification satis-
fies its responsibilities under NEPA and allows the City of San Mateo to use HOME Program
OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS. HUD will accept objections to its release of funds and
the City of San Mateo certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submis-
sion date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if it is on one of the following
basis: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the City of San Mateo;
(b) City of San Mateo has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD
regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient has incurred costs not authorized by 24
CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by HUD; or (d) another Federal agency acting
pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1054 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactorily
from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in ac-
cordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58) and shall be addressed to HUD Com-
munity Planning and Development Division (CPD), at 600 Harrison Street, 3rd Floor, San Fran-
cisco, CA. 94107. Potential objectors should contact HUD to verify the actual last day of the ob-
jection period.

California law requires that contractors
taking jobs that total $500 or more (labor
or materials) be licensed by the Contrac-
tor’s State License Board. State law also
requires that contractors include their li-
cense number in their advertising. You
can check the status of your licensed
contractor at www.cslb.ca.gov or 800-
321-CSLB. Unlicensed contractors taking
jobs that total less than $500 must state
in their advertisements that they are not
licensed by the Contractors State Li-
cense Board.
