Sheriff Greg Munks plans to
spend up to $3 million to house an
estimated 98 inmates at the
Alameda County Jail for the next
two years to ease local overcrowd-
ing until San Mateo County’s new
correctional facility opens.
On Tuesday, Munks will ask the
Board of Supervisors to let him
sign an agreement with the
Alameda County Sheriff’s Office
for housing between June 1, 2014,
and June 1, 2016, with an exten-
sion option if needed. The cost
will be borne by the money the

Bolivia rebels at rightist
timepieces, flips clock
LAPAZ, Bolivia — Bolivia’s leftist
government is turning back the clock.
Or, more precisely, turning it back-
The government this week flipped
the clock atop the Congress building
so that while it’s accurate, the hands
now turn to the left, a direction known
elsewhere as counterclockwise.
Foreign Minister David
Choquehuanca announced the modifi-
cation Tuesday. He said it was only
logical that a clock in the Southern
Hemisphere should turn in the oppo-
site direction of a Northern
Hemisphere clock.
The president of Congress, Marcelo
Elio, on Wednesday called the reform
‘’a clear expression of the de-colo-
nization of the people” under
President Evo Morales, who became
the country’s first indigenous presi-
dent when he won office in 2005 and is
up for re-election in October.
Vice President Alvaro Garcia said the
government is thinking about similar-
ly modifying all clocks at public
He recalled that during an open-air
Cabinet meeting, Choquehuanca
placed a stick in the ground and
showed that the sun’s shadow rotated
counterclockwise around it. Garcia
called the display “mind opening.”
Political opponents denounced the
Opposition lawmaker Norma Pierola
said the government “wishes to
change the universal laws of time.”
Samuel Doria Medina, the cement
and fast-food magnate expected to be
Morales’ main challenger in October,
called the switch a sign “that things
are regressing.”’
Victor Hugo Cardenas, a former vice
president and, like Morales, a member
of the Aymara people, said it’s true
that when the Aymara meet, they form
a circle and greet each other in coun-
terclockwise order.
But he said Morales’ clock reform,
announced to coincide with the hemi-
sphere’s winter solstice, elevates that
vision “to the ridiculous for political
Swollen creek not
enough to halt food order
FAIRBANKS, Alaska — A little
thing like a flooded creek was not
enough to keep an Alaska restaurant
owner from delivering Thai ribs and
fried rice to stranded customers over
the weekend.
Anuson “Knott” Poolsawat, owner
of Knott’s Take Out in North Pole,
forded the swollen waters of Clear
Creek to reach two customers stuck
along the Richardson Highway, the
Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.
Mike Laiti and Brandon Borgens
were completing a multi-day drive
Saturday night up the Alaska Highway
when they called in their order to the
restaurant, which was near closing.
As they approached Clear Creek,
they learned a sinkhole had developed
from heavy rain near the creek. The
state Department of Transportation
closed the bridge.
Laiti called Poolsawat to cancel
their order at the restaurant more than
25 miles away in North Pole.
“I called him and said, ‘Hey man, I
can’t make it,’ and he said, ‘Not a
problem, I’ll come cross the waters,”’
Laiti said. “He called me and said,
‘Should I bring a boat?”’
Poolsawat arrived with takeout
boxes containing Thai barbecue ribs
and Thai fried rice. Another box held a
“dinosaur egg” — a hardboiled egg
that’s fried and covered in a sweet
sesame sauce.
Poolsawat hiked up his shorts and
waded through the creek, holding the
takeout boxes over his head. The cold
water was hip-deep.
Poolsawat had already done them a
favor by staying open late, Laiti said.
The delivery was beyond expecta-
“He’d help anybody out. He’s just a
really good positive attitude, just a
good guy,” said Laiti. “He’s definitely
a goofball character and the food he
makes is great.”

The driver accused of causing a 2013
Colma crash that killed three passengers,
including his girlfriend, before fleeing the
scene changed his mind on a deal the second
day of trial and pleaded no contest to three
counts of gross vehicular manslaughter,
drunk driving and hit-and-run.
Paul Michael Anthony Diaz, 26, of Daly
City is looking at a sentence between 15
years and 20 years in prison for the May 27,
2013, crash that killed Ruvin Abel Vazquez,
22, Jonathan Jade Mouton, 21, and Rosa
Maria Falla, 23, all of Daly City. Falla and
Diaz were dating.
Diaz settled his case as his jury trial began
with motions and jury
selection. He remains in
custody on $1 million
bail pending his Aug. 6
sentencing hearing.
Defense attorney Savas
Loukedis did not respond
to an inquiry about his
client’s decision to settle
the case.
Prosecutors say on
May 27 Diaz was speeding in his Mustang
on Hillside Boulevard near the Cypress
Lawn Funeral Home at 90-plus mph when he
crashed into the back of a Honda, pushing it
into a cemetery while he lost control and
smashed into a retaining wall. The Mustang
split in two, ejecting the three passengers.
Diaz allegedly approached Falla’s body after
the crash before running away. The Honda’s
driver was not seriously injured.
He surrendered to Daly City police about
five hours later which left authorities deter-
mining his blood alcohol level based on a
scientific formula.
Prosecutors originally looked at increas-
ing the charges against Diaz to murder but
opted against doing so after weighing fac-
tors like his driving record and the short
amount of time he was driving before he lost
control. Diaz has a prior misdemeanor drunk
driving conviction.

SACRAMENTO — California’s chefs and
bartenders can resume legally handling food
with their bare hands under a bill headed to
the governor’s desk that would repeal an
unpopular regulation.
The bill, AB2130, passed its final legisla-
tive hurdle Thursday with a 32-0 vote in the
state Senate.
A law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown last
year requires restaurant employees to use
gloves or utensils to handle food going
straight to diners’ plates, from the rice in a
sushi roll to the mint in a mojito. The pro-
hibition, in place in 41 other states, has
long been recommended by regulators to
curb the spread of food-borne illness.
The original legislation attracted no
opposition from lobbying groups or chain
restaurants because the no-hands approach
is a national norm. But independent and
high-end chefs and bartenders who weren’t
familiar with the regulation in other states
said they were caught off-guard by the new
rule coming to California. They said the ban
disrupts well-established hand-washing rou-
tines, generates unnecessary waste of dis-
posable gloves and restricts them in their
Sen. Kevin De Leon, D-Los Angeles, told
lawmakers on Thursday that the ban would
not have been approved had their concerns
been raised earlier.
Assemblyman Richard Pan, D-
Sacramento, introduced AB2130 to repeal
the law he originally authored as part of an
update to the state food code. Pan, who is
chairman of the health committee and a
pediatrician, said it became apparent that
local health inspectors were more stringent
in granting exceptions than lawmakers
Inspectors are not supposed to start slap-
ping eateries with fines for bare-hand con-
tact until July 1, which is when the bill
would take effect.

California accuses
FedEx of waste violations
FRESNO — State officials on Thursday
accused FedEx Ground Package System of
violating California’s hazardous waste laws
since 2008 by failing to properly handle
broken or leaking packages containing
harmful materials.
The California Department of Toxic
Substances Control cited FedEx in a civil
complaint noting more than 1,500 viola-
tions at 31 FedEx terminals and the compa-
ny’s hubs in Sacramento, Los Angeles and
San Bernardino counties.
State officials say that FedEx transported
damaged and leaking packages of hazardous
substances through hubs that weren’t
authorized for such materials. Officials
accused FedEx of shipping packages of
acids, solvents, insecticides, batteries and
other flammable toxic or corrosive materi-
als without the proper labels, registration
and manifest.
FedEx spokeswoman Katie Wassmer
issued a statement on behalf of the global
shipping firm in response, denying the
state’s claims.
“Safety is essential to our business and
FedEx complies with all applicable local,
state and federal reporting requirements,”
she said

Tucson authorities. Kris had been living in Arizona for the
last eight years. She was a graduate of Burlingame
Intermediate School and Burlingame High School. She
attended the College of San Mateo and graduated from the
New College of San Francisco. She was a trained/qualified
electrician and plumber.

Chambers of Phoenix; and her former partner, Kight
Pruszynski of Tucson.
She is also survived by a wide circle of close friends in the
Tucson area. More than 300 people attended a vigil for her
on June 24. Her mother stated that, “Kris was loved by so
many people. Her death was terribly tragic and totally
unnecessary. I treasure every moment we spent together.”

WASHINGTON — The Supreme
Court unanimously struck down the
35-foot protest-free zone outside abor-
tion clinics in Massachusetts
Thursday, declaring it an unconstitu-
tional restraint on the free-speech
rights of protesters.
Authorities have less intrusive ways
to deal with potential confrontations
or other problems that can arise out-
side clinics, Chief Justice John
Roberts wrote. Roberts noted that
most of the problems reported by
police and the clinics in
Massachusetts occurred outside a sin-
gle Planned Parenthood facility in
Boston, and only on Saturdays when
the largest crowds typically gather.
“For a problem shown to arise only
once a week in one city at one clinic,
creating 35-foot buffer zones at every
clinic across the Commonwealth is
hardly a narrowly tailored solution,”
Roberts said. He wrote the majority
opinion after asking no questions —
exceedingly rare for him — at the argu-
ment in January.
Roberts noted that no other state has
a similar law and that he is aware of
only five cities that have created fixed
buffer zones around abortion clinics:
Burlington, Vermont; Pittsburgh;
Portland, Maine, and San Francisco
and Santa Barbara in California.
The ruling also left intact a high
court decision from 2000 that upheld a
floating buffer zone in Colorado.
While the court was unanimous in
the overall outcome, Roberts joined
with the four liberal justices to strike
down the buffer zone on narrower
grounds than the other, more conser-
vative justices wanted.
High court voids abortion
clinic protest-free zone
By Sam Hananel
WASHINGTON — The Supreme
Court on Thursday limited the presi-
dent’s power to fill high-level admin-
istration posts with temporary
appointments, ruling in favor of
Senate Republicans in their partisan
clash with President Barack Obama.
But the justices stopped short of a
more sweeping decision that would
have effectively ended a president’s
power to make recess appointments
when the Senate
takes a break.
It was the high
court’s first case
involving the
C o n s t i t u t i o n ’ s
recess appoint-
ments clause, end-
ing with a unani-
mous decision that
Obama’s appoint-
ments to the National Labor
Relations Board in 2012 without
Senate confirmation were illegal.
Obama had argued that the Senate
was on an extended holiday break and
that the brief sessions it held every
three days — what lawmakers call “pro
forma” — were a sham intended to pre-
vent him from filling seats on the
Rejecting that argument, Justice
Stephen Breyer said in his majority

Fecal transplants
challenge the FDA
WASHINGTON — Imagine a low-cost treatment for a life-
threatening infection that could cure up to 90 percent of
patients with minimal side effects, often in a few days.
It may sound like a miracle drug, but this cutting-edge treat-
ment is profoundly simple — though somewhat icky: take the
stool of healthy patients to cure those with hard-to-treat intes-
tinal infections. Asmall but growing number of physicians
have begun using these so-called fecal transplants to treat
Clostridium difficile, commonly referred to as C-diff, a bacter-
ial infection that causes nausea, cramping and diarrhea. The
germ afflicts a half-million Americans annually and kills
about 15,000 of them.
But fecal transplants pose a challenge for the Food and Drug
Administration, which has decided to regulate the treatment as
an experimental drug. Stool transplants don’t fit neatly into
the agency’s standard framework. And while regulators have
shown flexibility in their approach, some critics say the mere
presence of government oversight is discouraging many doc-
tors from offering transplants.
Patients can contract HIV, hepatitis and other viruses and
parasites from fecal matter that is not properly screened.

be administered quickly and safely if a stu-
dent suffers from a serious allergic reaction
during school hours, according to Huff.
Current state law allows public schools to
stock epinephrine, but does not require it.
The bill is currently at the Assembly
Appropriations Committee after passing
through the Assembly Education Committee
on Wednesday, but won’t be looked at again
likely until August because of the
Legislature’s summer recess.
“We’ve gone through five policy commit-
tees; more than most bills go through,”
Huff said. “Appropriations is always a crap-
shoot — this one I’m hoping will get out of
there. It’s whether the committee recog-
nizes some things that have high value also
have a cost. It’s clearly a new public health
threat that needs to be addressed.”
Hill is hopeful about its passage.
“I think it has so far been successful —
it’s gotten out of every committee,” he said.
“I think it has a very good chance of pass-
ing. The facts speak for themselves. There
is already precedent for bills similar to this
getting out.”
The path to passage of a bill that has
union pushback is usually more laborious,
Huff noted. The California Teachers
Association is opposed to the bill, fearing
it could put teachers in a position beyond
their training. A school nurse or, if the
school does not have a school nurse or the
school nurse is not onsite or available, a
volunteer may administer an epinephrine
auto-injector to a person exhibiting poten-
tially life-threatening symptoms of ana-
phylaxis at school or a school activity
when a physician is not immediately avail-
able. If the epinephrine auto-injector is used
it shall be restocked as soon as reasonably
possible, but no later than two weeks after
it is used, according to the legislation. The
teachers unions would rather see more
school nurses hired on to administer epi-
“It basically boils down to the health and
safety needs of children are really best met
through services of credentialed school
nurse,” Mike Myslinski, spokesman for the
California Teachers Association, previous-
ly said. “Educators are very concerned they
could be called upon to perform medical pro-
cedures that are beyond the scope of any
training they have received. It could pose
significant threats to students’ health.”
Huff did make amendments to the bill that
include the fact “volunteer” or “trained per-
sonnel” means an employee who has volun-
teered to administer epinephrine auto-injec-
tors to a person if the person is suffering, or
reasonably believed to be suffering, from
anaphylaxis, and has been designated by a
school and has received training pursuant to
subdivision. Additionally, if the
Commission on State Mandates determines
that this act has state-mandated costs, there
should be reimbursement to local agencies
and school districts.
Still, the state teachers union doesn’t sup-
port the bill, Myslinski said. It still doesn’t
sufficiently address costs or the negative
unintended consequences, he said.
According to Food Allergy Research &
Education, an advocacy group that spon-
sored Huff’s bill, as many as 15 million
Americans suffer from life-threatening
allergies to things such as bees, shellfish or
nuts, gluten or latex. It is estimated that
nearly 6 million of these people are chil-
dren under the age of 18. Approximately 25
percent of first-time allergic reactions that
require epinephrine happen at school and
these potentially lethal allergic reactions
are skyrocketing, according to Huff’s office.
The Legislature will adjourn on summer
break after the July 4 holiday. Session
resumes a month later and the bill could be
up for vote on Aug. 14. From there it would
be sent to the Assembly Floor. Should it
pass, the bill must come back to the Senate
for a concurrence vote since Huff made
amendments in the Assembly. Then, it
would go to the governor for a signature.

Criminal sentencing
measure qualifies for ballot
SACRAMENTO — An initiative seeking
to lower the criminal penalties for certain
theft and drug crimes has qualified for the
November ballot in California.
Secretary of State Debra Bowen said
Thursday that supporters collected the more
than 500,000 signatures they needed.
The measure would make petty theft,
receiving stolen property, and forging or
writing bad checks for $950 or less misde-
meanors instead of felonies.
The proposal backed by San Francisco
District Attorney George Gascon also
would make certain drug possession offens-
es misdemeanors.
The offenses could still be prosecuted as
felonies, if the suspect is a registered sex
offender or has previous convictions for
rape, murder or child molestation.
People already serving felony sentences
would be resentenced, if the measure pass-
State officials estimate the measure could
save hundreds of millions of dollars in jail
and prison costs.

BAGHDAD — Prominent Shiite leaders
pushed Thursday for the removal of Iraqi
Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki as parlia-
ment prepared to start work next week on
putting together a new government, under
intense U.S. pressure to rapidly form a unit-
ed front against an unrelenting Sunni insur-
gent onslaught.
Increasingly, the Shiite al-Maliki’s for-
mer allies believe he cannot lead an inclu-
sive government that can draw minority
Sunnis away from support for the fighters
who have swept over a large swath of Iraq as
they head toward the capital, Baghdad. In a
further sign of Iraq’s unraveling along sec-
tarian lines, a bombing on Thursday killed
12 people in a Shiite neighborhood of
Baghdad that houses a revered shrine, and
police found the bullet-riddled bodies of
eight Sunnis south of the capital.
Most crucially, though, backing for al-
Maliki is weakening with his most impor-
tant ally, neighboring Iran.
A senior Iranian general who met with
Shiite politicians in Iraq during a 10-day
visit this month returned home with a list of
potential prime minister candidates for
Iran’s leadership to consider, several senior
Iraqi Shiite politicians who have knowl-
edge of the general’s meetings told the
Associated Press.
Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali
Khamenei, wants al-Maliki to remain in his
post, at least for now, the politicians said,
but Iran’s moderate president, Hassan
Rouhani, believes al-Maliki must go or else
Iraq will fragment. Khamenei holds final
say in all state matters in Iran, but the
politicians expressed doubt he would insist
on al-Maliki against overwhelming rejec-
tion of him by Iraq’s Shiite parties.
The general, Ghasem Soleimani, is
expected to return within days to inform
Iraqi politicians of Tehran’s favorite, they
said, speaking on condition of anonymity
to discuss the internal deliberations.
Iran’s Shiite cleric-led government suc-
ceeded in herding reluctant Shiite parties
into backing al-Maliki for a second term
four years ago, and its leverage over Iraq’s
Shiite political establishment has grown
significantly since the 2011 withdrawal of
U.S. troops after an eight-year presence.
Non-Arab and mostly Shiite, Iran has
found in majority Shiite Iraq a convenient
vehicle to extend its sphere of regional
influence to the heart of the Middle East.
Iran’s leverage in Iraq also gives it a trump
card against its Sunni rivals in the Gulf
region, where powerhouse Saudi Arabia, for
example, has traditionally viewed Tehran
with suspicion.

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.

Barack Obama seeks
$500M to train and
equip Syrian rebels
By Julie Pace
WASHINGTON — With the conflicts in
Syria and Iraq becoming increasingly
intertwined against the same Sunni
extremist group, President Barack Obama
moved on Thursday to ratchet up U.S.
efforts to strengthen more moderate
Syrian rebels.
Obama’s request to Congress for $500
million in training and arms to the oppo-
sition in effect opens a second front in the
fight against militants spilling over
Syria’s border and threatening to over-
whelm neighboring Iraq. The train-and-
equip mission would be overseen by the
Pentagon and would mark a significant
expansion of previous covert effort to arm
the more moderate rebels who are fighting
both the extremists and forces loyal to
Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Obama has long been reluctant to arm
the opposition, in part because of con-
cerns that weapons may fall into extremist
hands. But administration officials say
the U.S. has grown increasingly confident
in recent months about its ability to dis-
tinguish the moderate rebels from the
more extremist elements that include the
al-Qaida-inspired Islamic State of Iraq and
the Levant, or ISIL, which has stormed
into Iraq and captured much of the northern
part of the country.
The risk of U.S. weapons and ammuni-
tion falling into the wrong hands appears
to have only heightened now that ISIL has
strengthened. But Obama’s request to
Congress on Thursday appeared to indicate
that tackling the crumbling security situa-
tion in Syria and Iraq trumped those con-

By Alisande Rozynko
orth Crestview Park is a unique
park at the top of San Carlos with
spectacular views of the entire San
Francisco Bay all the way to Mount Diablo.
It has been used and enjoyed by neighbor-
hood residents of all ages for 40 years.
San Carlos is a mixed generation commu-
nity and North Crestview Park is enjoyed by
young families, single people and elderly
couples alike. After all, only 33 percent of
households in San Carlos have children
under 18, while 35 percent of the families in
San Carlos have members that are over 60
Residents of all ages make San Carlos a
great place to live. North Crestview Park
attracts people to the neighborhood and
makes it a better place to live. It also makes
the neighborhood a better place to raise
children and makes people want to stay long
after their children have grown.
However, Adam Rak and Nicole Bergeron
of the San Carlos Elementary School
District and Mark Olbert, Ron Collins and
Cameron Johnson of the City Council insist
that San Carlos is “built around” families
with young children. Apparently, a majority
of the City Council and the school board
believe that retirees, parents with older chil-
dren, couples without children and singles
do not need natural areas or parks to enjoy.
They appear to suggest that families without
school-age children are to
be regarded as second-
class citizens.
This attitude is evident
in the efforts by the
school district and certain
members of the City
Council to confiscate this
40-year-old park from the
Crestview neighborhood
and give it to the school district, even
though the school district has admitted that
viable alternatives are available.
North Crestview Park was dedicated as a
park in 1974 to offset the density in hous-
ing that resulted from the Highland Park
Development and to ensure that residents in
the Crestview neighborhood had sufficient
access to park lands. Ironically, North
Crestview Park was originally part of
School Site 9 that the San Carlos
Elementary School District sold to the
developer for a profit .
Now the school district wants it back. The
school district and certain members of the
City Council justify confiscating a 40-year-
old park by citing the need to prevent
school overcrowding and help traffic flow.
Yet Seth Rosenblatt, a member of the San
Carlos Elementary School District Board of
Trustees, has openly admitted that land is
not the issue. Mr. Rosenblatt stated unequiv-
ocally that the school district has enough
land, the problem is traffic. Yet the school
district has done nothing and has no plans
to address traffic issues at its current facili-
ties. Watch the morning student dropoff at
any of the schools in San Carlos and you
will see car after car dropping off one child.
The school district’s own traffic study finds
that only 6 percent of parents with children
at Arundel school, 7 percent of parents with
children at Heather elementary and 20 per-
cent of parents with children at Tierra Linda
school carpool and that single student occu-
pancy vehicles comprise 74 percent, 62.5
percent and 49 percent at Arundel, Heather
and Tierra Linda, respectively.
Sorry, Crestview neighborhood, says the
school district: North Crestview Park will
be sacrificed so that the school district
won’t have to address an issue of their own
making and parents won’t be inconve-
nienced when they drop off their kids at
Can the school district and these members
of the City Council be right? Can it be that
two-thirds of the households of the
Crestview neighborhood are not the “fami-
lies” who count in San Carlos?

Deja vu all over again? Looks that way in
Iraq. After all the missteps and lies as well
as the blood and treasure wasted in that ille-
gal invasion, we have another debacle. Try
as they might, no one can blame Obama on
this one. Iraq’s own foolish leader is to
blame. Naturally, the illegal Bush war start-
ed this latest nightmare, but there is now
plenty of incompetence to go around.
Perhaps the worst part is how much “air
time” former vice president Cheney is get-
ting instead of “jail time” for lying us into
an illegal invasion, (see Nuremberg princi-
Chalmers Johnson’s trilogy starting with
“Blowback,” then “Sorrows of Empire” and
finally “Nemesis: The Last Days of the
American Republic,” all deal with American
military overreach and its unintended con-
sequences. Here we are facing the possibili-
ty of having to bail out Mr. Maliki in Iraq
after his incompetence has pretty much
killed any chance of his nation remaining
as one state. The Sunni population has had
enough of his favoritism toward the Shiite
majority and the Kurds see the time is ripe
to finalize the setting of borders for the
Kurdish territory.
The rag-tag group ISIS OR ISIL, or what-
ever you care to call them, has been the
vanguard in advancing these grievances.
Who is in our corner? Guess who’s coming
to dinner? Iran, that’s who. Now we have a
common cause in preventing a radicalized

She says: “It’s time to regulate these
products and protect our children.” I could-
n’t agree more. She even came up with a
catchy name for her law — SMOKE.
I am, however, wondering if she is seri-
ous about protecting our children from
harmful chemicals. Does she truly care
about well-being of all our children or is
she selective in her fight to protect children
from those who want to sell them harmful
substances? How about stopping the sale of
cancer-causing chemicals classified by
World Health Organization as class one car-
cinogens such as oral contraceptives? How
about protecting the most vulnerable and
defenseless among our children, babies in
the womb, who are executed at the rate of

Hey, what if I lose my tax records?
The IRS has not only lost, but destroyed
the hard drives that contain two years of
potentially crucial emails linking the

Let’s all get brown
hate the fact that my lawn is dead.
Brown, barren, now not even weeds
will grow. That tends to happen when
you stop watering it.
When we first moved into the house, the
front lawn was basically dirt and I grew the
lawn from seed. Even a sewer line break
and a subsequent required 3-foot ditch did
not dissuade me from returning it to green.
I took a lot of care in keeping it alive and
But the last
time I watered it
was January
because the usual

month. I
February would
be better and I
should keep it
alive until the
rains came. They
did, a little, but
not very much.
And it hasn’t really rained since, because,
well, we are in a drought. I know this not
because the governor declared it, I know
this because it hasn’t rained. And while I
like having a green lawn, I get it, we need
to conserve water.
Along with other conservation measures,
I’ve seen my water bill drop by about a
third. That may be nice, but it’s not the
point. I would gladly pay that extra money
for a green lawn but am doing it because we
are in a three-year dry spell with 2013
being the driest year on record. In
February, the San Francisco Public Utilities
Commission issued a 10 percent voluntary
rationing request. It seems others might be
like-minded and also do their part.
Alas, no. In going to different areas of
California, it seems as if others have not
gotten the message. Even in Folsom, the
poster child for drought with its reservoir
reported to be at 17 percent of capacity in
January, lawns are green all over. Other
cities, including those in San Mateo
County, also have plentiful stretches of
green expanse dotting neighborhoods.
Arecent USC/Los Angeles Times poll
indicated that nine out of 10 people see the
drought as a “crisis or major problem,”
however, it does not appear that concern
translates into anyone doing anything
about it as evidenced by how many green
lawns there are.
I’m not saying I’m a prince among men
because I’m conserving water. I’m just try-
ing to do my part. And I get the urge to
continue using water because brown lawns
look bad and this is America, where we can
do what we want, right? But it is also an
American characteristic to make sacrifices
for the greater good.
We receive our water from the Hetch
Hetchy Reservoir, which still has supply,
but the storage system is at 64.5 percent of
its 117 billion gallon maximum capacity
— nowhere near ideal.
So what’s next? Both the SFPUC and the
Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation
Agency, which represents cities and water
districts on the Peninsula, have decided to
evaluate water usage every month to deter-
mine if we will be required to conserve or
pay penalties. What those penalties might
be has yet to be determined, but it will
likely mean higher rates unless we reduce
our usage. Herein lies a possibility for
injustice — if we all must lower our water
usage or face penalties, does that mean that
those who are already conserving must
lower usage even more? And does it mean
that those who aren’t conserving at all will
have to lower their usage just a bit to avoid
It’s something to keep in mind for those
in a decision-making position about penal-
ties. After all, my lawn can’t get any
So how about it green lawn people, can
you get with the system?

NEW YORK — Banks and other
financial firms tugged the stock market
slightly lower Thursday as a mixed
batch of economic reports and earn-
ings results gave investors little rea-
son to push the market up.
Barclays sank following news that
New York’s attorney general sued the
British bank, claiming that it favored
high-frequency traders over large insti-
tutions in its private-trading platform,
known as a “dark pool.”
It was only the third loss in 10 trad-
ing days for the Standard & Poor’s 500
index, which closed at its latest record
high just under a week ago, on June 20.
Many investors have been saying
stocks could be due for a pullback
given their rapid rise recently.
Phil Orlando, chief equity strategist
at Federated Investors, said a short
slump in the summer months wouldn’t
come as a surprise. “I fully expect to
see a hiccup here, but I wouldn’t get
too worried about it,” he said. “It’s
probably going to set us up for a nice
end-of-the-year rally.”
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
sank 2.31 points, or 0.1 percent, to
close at 1,957.22, while the Nasdaq
composite index fell 0.71 of a point to
The Dow Jones industrial average
lost 21.38 points, or 0.1 percent, to
close at 16,846.13.
Two economic reports out early
Thursday offered little encouragement.
In one, the government said the num-
ber of Americans seeking unemploy-
ment benefits declined last week,
another sign that an economic slow-
down earlier this year hasn’t caused
employers to shed workers. In a sepa-
rate report, the government said con-
sumer spending inched up 0.2 percent
last month, half the increase that
economists had predicted.
Among the stocks making big
moves, Bed Bath & Beyond sank 7 per-
cent, the biggest loss in the S&P 500,
after the retailer posted quarterly earn-
ings and sales late Wednesday that fell
short of analysts’ estimates. The
store’s stock dropped $4.41 to
GoPro jumped 31 percent in its
stock-market debut. The company,
whose cameras get strapped to the
heads of skydivers, extreme skiers and
surfers, raised $427 million in its ini-
tial public offering Thursday. GoPro
soared $7.34 to $31.34 in its first day
of trading on the Nasdaq stock market.
With one trading day left in the
week, the S&P 500 is on track for its
second weekly loss this month. That
shouldn’t worry anyone, said Randy
Frederick, managing director of active
trading and derivatives at the Charles
Schwab Center for Financial Research.
As the stock market set a series of all-
time highs this spring, more traders
began laying bets in the options mar-
ket that the market would take a fall, if
only for technical reasons. Markets
can only go so far in one direction.
“There’s nothing to get panicked
about,” Frederick said. “We haven’t
had a real pullback in a while. And
when we have one, they turn out to be
buying opportunities. This time is no

WASHINGTON — The government
wants to dramatically reduce the
allowable height of potentially thou-
sands buildings near airports around
the country — a proposal that is draw-
ing fire from real estate developers,
local officials and members of
Congress who say it will hurt proper-
ty values.
The Federal Aviation Administration
proposal, supported by airports and
airlines, is driven by encroaching
development that limits safe flight
paths for planes that might lose power
in an engine during takeoff. Planes
can fly with only one engine, but they
have less power to climb quickly over
Local business leaders, who see air-
ports as a means to attract develop-
ment, say they fear office towers and
condominium complexes will have to
be put on hold until developers and
zoning boards can figure out what the
agency’s proposal means for their
communities. In Tempe, Arizona, for
example, local Chamber of Commerce
President Mary Ann Miller said she
fears almost any new building in the
city’s downtown would face new
restrictions because the community is
located near the edge of Phoenix Sky
Harbor’s runways.
“Coming out of a very long reces-
sion, we hate the idea of stopping
some growth,” she said.
In Florida, the Miami City
Commission passed a resolution two
weeks ago that said the proposal “may
be detrimental to the overall growth
and economic prosperity” of the city’s
downtown and urged the FAA to con-
duct a study of its potential economic
impact before moving forward.
Airlines have to plan for the possi-
bility that a plane could lose the use of
an engine during takeoff even though
that doesn’t happen very often. As
more buildings, cellphone towers,
wind turbines and other tall structures
go up near airports, there are fewer
safe flight paths available. Current
regulations effectively limit building
heights based on the amount of clear-
ance needed by planes with two oper-
ating engines.
FAA, developers clash over tall buildings

LOS ANGELES — The Supreme
Court shot down Aereo’s business
model this week, but that doesn’t
mean customers’ desire for a better TV
experience is gone.
Americans are still fed up with huge
channel bundles, high prices, poor
service and the lack of ability to
watch all their shows on all their
devices. That’s part of why Aereo was
attractive: It offered a few dozen local
broadcast channels and the
Bloomberg TV financial channel on
multiple devices for just $8 a month.
Industry watchers say the pay TV
business must continue to evolve to
win over unhappy customers, even if
the nation’s top court said grabbing
signals from the airwaves and distrib-
uting them online without content-
owner permission isn’t the way.
“Even without Aereo, the reason
people were cutting the cord, for cost
reasons and so on, those don’t go
away,” said Robin Flynn, an analyst
with market research firm SNLKagan.
Last year, the number of pay TV
subscribers in the U.S. fell for the
first time, dipping 0.1 percent to
94.6 million, according to
Leichtman Research Group.
SNL estimates that 5 percent of
homes will substitute pay TV with
one or more Internet video services
by the end of the year, rising to 10
percent in 2017.
Many companies are offering quali-
ty TV content online for low cost to
meet that rising demand. They
include Netflix and Amazon. Hulu,
which is owned by major broadcast
networks ABC, NBC and Fox, offers
full episodes of popular shows like
“The Colbert Report” the next day for

CHICAGO — Good thing she does-
n’t need a password to get into heaven.
That’s what Donna Spinner often mut-
ters when she tries to remember the
growing list of letter-number-and-
symbol codes she’s had to create to
access her various online accounts.
“At my age, it just gets too confus-
ing,” says the 72-year-old grandmoth-
er who lives outside Decatur, Illinois.
But this is far from just a senior
moment. Frustration over passwords is
as common across the age brackets as
the little reminder notes on which peo-
ple often write them.
“We are in the midst of an era I call
the ‘tyranny of the password,”’ says
Thomas Way, a computer science pro-
fessor at Villanova University.
“We’re due for a revolution.”
One could argue that the revolution
is already well underway, with pass-
words destined to go the way of the
floppy disc and dial-up Internet.
Already, there are multiple services
that generate and store your passwords
so you don’t have to remember them.
Beyond that, biometric technology is
emerging, using thumbprints and face
recognition to help us get into our
accounts and our devices. Some new
iPhones use the technology, for
instance, as do a few retailers, whose
employees log into work computers
with a touch of the hand.

Feds nix eagle penalties
for California wind farm
FRESNO — A California wind farm will become the
first in the nation to avoid prosecution if eagles are
injured or die when they run into the giant turning
blades, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Thursday.
The Shiloh IVWind Project LLC, 60 miles east of San
Francisco, will receive a special permit allowing up to
five golden eagles to be accidentally killed over five
years. Previously, such a violation could potentially
draw criminal charges and discourage private investment
in wind farms known for catching birds in their rotors.

Jerry Rice Jr., son of San Francisco 49ers
Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, has signed a NFL
contract with the Washington Redskins,
several media outlets reported Thursday. reported Rice
announced the news himself via his
Instagram account, showing a picture of the
top of an NFL contract. The caption reads:
“Just blessed This is an amazing day and
I’m excited to get back to work to help the
redskins get back to the
promised land. They gave
me an opportunity and
best believe they will get
110% out of me! Thank
you for everybody who

Rice, an undrafted rookie wide receiver out
of UNLV, had tryouts with the Baltimore
Ravens and 49ers prior to signing with the

Menlo School, said while it will be hard for
Rice to make the 53-man roster, he believes
Rice has the tools and mindset to give it a
“He has an incredible work ethic and is
incredibly smart,” Newton said. “He can
help in special teams.”
Rice’s biggest attribute may be his versa-
tility. While at Menlo, Rice did a little bit of
everything. In his two varsity seasons for
the Knights, 2007 and 2008, Rice caught 45
balls for 707 yards and five touchdowns. But
he also rushed for an average of 7.8 yards per
carry, gaining 425 yards and scoring eight
touchdowns on 56 carries. He was also 9 for
12 passing for 108 yards and averaged 30
yards on kickoff returns.
“He has a willingness to do anything. He
can play [any offensive skill position],”
Newton said. “He’s also a really clutch per-
former. ”

American Omar Gonzalez, shown battling Germany’s Thomas Mueller for the ball, was solid
in his first World Cup start Thursday, a 1-0 loss that saw Mueller score the game’s only goal.
Despite the loss, the U.S. advanced to the knockout round of the World Cup.

RECIFE, Brazil — After the final whistle,
Omar Gonzalez spread his long arms in cele-
bration and reserve goalkeeper Nick
Rimando came leaping into them.
Gonzalez was ready to play a big role in
this World Cup, just as he had promised from
Day 1 of training camp even when a knee
injury left him slightly behind.
U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann took a
chance on the Los Angeles Galaxy star for
Thursday’s Group G finale against three-time
champion Germany, inserting Gonzalez for
struggling right center back Geoff Cameron
in the 1-0 loss that was still enough for the
U.S. to advance in Brazil. Portugal defeated
Ghana 2-1 at the same time.
“I did my job,” Gonzalez said. “I haven’t
been getting much luck since the very
beginning of camp with my little injury, but
I’ve always said I was going to stay ready. I
got my opportunity today, and I’m just
happy I could step on the field and do what-
ever I could to help this team go through.”
Aside from an early missed clearance
attempt by Gonzalez in the third minute
when he flubbed Jerome Boateng’s cross and
nearly put it in his own net, the move paid
off for Klinsmann.
“No one has a perfect game,” Gonzalez
said. “That was a little scare. It’s what you do
after a little hiccup.”
The Americans have defied expectations
by getting out of one of this tournament’s
toughest groups. The U.S. is headed to the
knockout round in consecutive World Cups
for the first time.
A top defender in Major League Soccer,
Gonzalez hung tough against high-scoring
Germany on a soggy field and with a slip-
pery ball.
“Everyone is so important in our group
and we wanted to give Cam a break, and we
don’t kind of have the luxury to say that all
the players can come and go every four days
in games and be always on the highest
level,” Klinsmann said. “We were sure now
with Omar coming in he was ready. He
worked so hard the five, six weeks we had

RIO DE JANEIRO — Luis Suarez exits the
World Cup with one of the longest bans in
tournament history, and his reputation once
again in tatters.
The Uruguay forward, widely regarded as
one of the best players in the world, was
banned by FIFA from all football for four
months on Thursday for biting an Italian
opponent in an incident
that marred the team’s
victory and progression
to the second round.
It’s the third time he’s
served a suspension for
biting an opponent —
after similar incidents at
both Ajax in the Dutch
league and Liverpool in
England — and the sec-
ond straight World Cup
where Suarez exits in disgrace.
The four-month ban will sideline Suarez
for the first two months of Liverpool’s sea-
son. He was also suspended for Uruguay’s
next nine matches, which extends beyond
the four months and rules him out of next
year’s Copa America, where his team is the
defending champion. The Uruguayan foot-
ball federation said it would appeal.
Aside from Diego Maradona’s 15-month
suspension for a failed drug test at the 1994
tournament, it’s the longest ban handed out
to a player at the World Cup. FIFAalso fined
Suarez 100,000 Swiss francs ($112,000).
Suarez bit the left shoulder of defender
Giorgio Chiellini on Tuesday in Natal dur-
ing Uruguay’s 1-0 win over Italy, an inci-
dent that went unpunished by the referee but

TV. Given Suarez’s previous biting inci-
dents, the images went viral immediately.

NEWYORK — Andrew Wiggins of Kansas
was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers with
the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft on Thursday
The Cavs went for a freshman from Canada
to open the draft for the second straight year
and hope Wiggins works out better than
Anthony Bennett.
Bennett was injured last summer, came into
the season out of shape and made no impact,
one of the reasons the Cavs were back in this
spot again.
But Wiggins seems a much more ready prod-
uct after averaging a Kansas freshman-record
17.1 points. He might have ended up as the top
pick anyway, but became the best option for
the Cavs when Jayhawks teammate Joel
Embiid suffered a stress fracture in his right
foot shortly before the draft.
“Athousand thoughts are
going through my head
right now,” Wiggins said.
“It’s a dream come true.”
Wearing a black tuxedo
jacket with a white floral
pattern, the guard slipped
on a maroon Cleveland
hat, hugged his supporters
and went on stage to shake
hands with Commissioner
Adam Silver, who was call-
ing the first round for the first time since
replacing David Stern.
Milwaukee followed with another freshman,
Duke forward Jabari Parker, who on Wednesday
disputed that he was out of shape for his work-
out with Cleveland and performed poorly.
Some consider him the more NBA-ready play-
er after an All-American season for the Blue
Devils, and getting to play in Milwaukee puts
him near his family in Chicago.
“I’m just very optimistic,” Parker said. “If it
was 1, 2, put me at 60, just getting that oppor-
tunity, getting that chance of being in the
Embiid went third to Philadelphia, drawing
loud cheers from the many red-and-blue dressed
76ers fans who made the trip to Barclays
Center in Brooklyn, as well as from
Philadelphia guard Michael Carter-Williams,
last season’s Rookie of the Year who was sit-
ting on the arena floor level.
The 76ers had two top-10 picks and could
afford to take a chance on Embiid, the big man
who may have ended up the top prize despite
his lone season at Kansas ending early because
of a bad back. But once the foot injury popped
up during workouts, leaving his NBA debut
uncertain after surgery, the two teams at the top
“He worked so hard,” Wiggins said. “He did-
n’t let nothing get to him. He always stayed
motivated. So I’m just proud. It’s a proud
moment for Kansas.
Arizona forward Aaron Gordon went fourth
to Orlando, which also had two picks in the
lottery, followed by Australian guard Dante
Exum to Utah.
Then came two teams not used to picking so
high: The Boston Celtics took Oklahoma
State guard Marcus Smart, with the rival Los
Angeles Lakers following at No. 7 with
Kentucky forward Julius Randle.
The 76ers took point guard Elfrid Payton of
Louisiana-Lafayette at No. 10 with their sec-
ond pick — they went into the draft with seven
overall in the two rounds — and Orlando
grabbed Croatian forward Dario Saric with its
other lottery pick at No. 12.
In between, Denver took Creighton’s Doug
McDermott, but the scoring star was already
bracing for a reported trade to Chicago, asking
officials if he was supposed to keep wearing
the Nuggets hat. He was told he was until the
deal was made.

Cal AD Sandy Barbour stepping down
BERKELEY — California athletic director Sandy Barbour
is stepping down from her position effective July 15.
Aperson in the athletic department with knowledge of the
decision said Thursday that Barbour and chancellor Nicholas
Dirks determined it was time for a “change in leadership.”
The San Jose Mercury News first reported the move.
Barbour has been in the role of AD since 2004 and has
come under fire of late for struggles by the football team.
Barbour fired Jeff Tedford following a 3-9 campaign in 2012
and hired Sonny Dykes as his replacement. The Golden
Bears went 1-11 in their first season under Dykes.
The person says a prominent alum and former student ath-
lete will be named interim athletic director. Anews confer-
ence to announce the changes is scheduled for Friday.
Pregnant runner Alysia Montano finishes 800
SACRAMENTO — Thirty-four weeks pregnant, Alysia
Montano ran the 800 meters Thursday in the U.S. Track and
Field Championships.
The five-time national champion finished in 2 minutes,
32.13 seconds in the qualifying rounds, only seven weeks
before she’s scheduled to give birth to her first child.
That the 28-year-old former University of California star fin-
ished last in her heat didn’t matter one bit to the crowd gathered
at Hornet Stadium. Trailing the lead pack by more than 120
meters for most of the race, Montano received a rousing ova-
tion as she finished her first lap and the cheering grew louder
when she finally crossed the finish line.
Montano decided to run after consulting with her physician.
Not only did doctors give Montano the OK to run, they encour-
aged her.
“That took away any fear of what the outside world might
think about a woman running during her pregnancy,” Montano

BETHESDA, Md. — Tiger Woods was back

Woods opened with two
straight bogeys, made five
more bogeys in a seven-
hole stretch around the turn
at tough Congressional
and finally found his groove late in the opening
round of the Quicken Loans National for a 3-

Woods was tied for 83rd — only 19 players
had a higher score — and he will have to score
better Friday if he wants to avoid missing the
cut for the first time in two years.
“I made so many little mistakes,” Woods
said. “So I played a lot better than the score
Congressional had a lot to do with that.
Two weeks after a U.S. Open that had no

Any shot just off the fairway was buried, mak-

LOS ANGELES — Jurors in a high-profile
negligence lawsuit against the Los Angeles
Dodgers and former owner Frank McCourt were
asked Thursday to decide who was responsible
for a beating that left a San Francisco Giants fan
with devastating brain damage.
The case filed on behalf of Bryan Stow was
placed in the hands of jurors after closing argu-
ments. They deliberated for three hours and left
for the day without reaching a verdict. They were
to resume talks on Friday.
Stow’s lawyer Tom Girardi contended the team
and McCourt had failed to provide enough secu-
rity to keep Stow safe at the Opening Day game
in 2011 between the state rivals.
“Dodger Stadium got to a place where it was a
total mess,” Girardi told jurors. “There was a cul-
ture of violence. Beer sales were off the charts.”
He also said, “The only thing Bryan Stow was
doing was wearing a jersey that said ‘Giants.”’
Girardi implored the jury to award $37.5
million in damages and double that amount
for pain and suffering.
Defense attorney Dana Fox countered that
there was more security than at any other
Dodgers opening day in history, and no one
could have prevented the assault on Stow as he
walked to a spot to catch a cab.
He insisted the team and McCourt were blame-
less and Stow should receive nothing.
Stow, 45, a former paramedic from Northern
California, didn’t testify and was not in the
courtroom Thursday. His family, however, occu-
pied a front row.
Girardi described him to jurors as one of the
nicest people he has represented and said, “We
hope to get a little justice out of this.”
Girardi has said Stow has no memory of the
catastrophic events and had to be told
Wednesday why he was sitting in the court-
Fox insisted that responsibility for the beat-
ing in a parking lot belonged to Dodger fans
Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood, who
pleaded guilty to charges filed in the attack.

football pitch and in particular not at a FIFA
World Cup, when the eyes of millions of
people are on the stars on the field,” Claudio
Sulser, chairman of the FIFA disciplinary
committee, said in a statement.
The Uruguayan federation was preparing
an urgent appeal, as Suarez headed home.
FIFA even barred him staying with team-
mates ahead of their round-of-16 game
against Colombia on Saturday in Rio de
“Luis in the next few hours will travel to
Montevideo to be with the rest of his family
to recover,” federation president Wilmar
Valdez told reporters.
Suarez scored both goals in Uruguay’s 2-1
win over England, a performance that further
enhanced a reputation that had gradually
been rebuilt following a 10-game suspen-
sion for biting a Premier League opponent
last May, and an eight-game ban for racially
abusing an opponent in 2011. Suarez was
voted the English league’s best player last
season after a campaign void of any disci-
plinary issues.
But now, the 27-year-old Suarez is the
main actor in the World Cup’s most damag-
ing episode for a second time.
In the quarterfinals in 2010 in South
Africa, his deliberate handball on the goal-
line in the final minute of extra time denied
Ghana an almost certain winning goal that
would have made it the first ever African
Suarez was sent off, and then refused to
apologize for his celebratory dance near the
players’ tunnel where he stayed to watch
Ghana miss the resulting penalty. He also
shrugged off criticism Tuesday of his bite.
As usual, Uruguay officials and players
defended their star player Thursday.
“It feels like Uruguay has been thrown out
of the World Cup,” Valdez said, denouncing
“a severe punishment.”

camp. And he was ready for it, and he
showed that on the field.”
Gonzalez hurt his left knee May 3 against
Colorado, keeping him out for the start of
Klinsmann’s structured training camp last
month at Stanford, California.
He hoped it wouldn’t put him behind.
Clearly, Klinsmann trusted Gonzalez to take
over a big responsibility on a new-look
back line that has been scrutinized from the
start for its youth and inexperience on soc-
cer’s biggest stage.
“Jurgen has always said this is a group of
23 players,” U.S. Soccer Federation
President Sunil Gulati said.
Against second-ranked Germany,
Gonzalez didn’t flinch. His 6-foot-5, 210-
pound frame certainly helped him to win
possession on headers.
He received a quick congratulatory pat on
the backside from goalkeeper Tim Howard
when he cleared a ball in the 14th minute,
then a high-five from fellow center back
Matt Besler after another hard tackle against
Thomas Mueller.
Gonzalez, who joined the national team
player pool in 2009, cleared another poten-
tial chance for Germany after the ball
deflected off Howard in front of the box.
“Not easy, you know, and thrown into the
firing line,” Howard said. “I thought he did
well, some good clearances, read the game
The 25-year-old defender from Dallas
made his World Cup debut in the 91st minute
of Sunday night’s 2-2 draw with Portugal in
Manaus, then made an even bigger impact
in his first start with his team’s World Cup
hopes on the line and chants of “U-S-A!”
ringing through Arena Pernambuco.
While the Americans didn’t exactly get
their ideal result, the defense didn’t allow
the Germans a game like their 4-0 romp over
Portugal in the opener.
When the final whistle blew and the
Americans quickly learned of Portugal’s
win, they took a lap to thank the fans who
did make it through the flooded streets of
Recife even when many of their own fami-
lies did not.
Gonzalez joined his teammates, then
stopped and gave a two thumbs-up salute, a
wave and a clap before making his exit.

Portugal 2, Ghana 1
BRASILIA, Brazil — Cristiano Ronaldo
finally made his mark at the World Cup —
but it came too late to spare Portugal an
early exit from Brazil.
The world player of the year broke his
scoring drought at the tournament with an
80th-minute winner against Ghana.
That result left the Portuguese level on
four points with United States in Group G
but with an inferior goal difference to the
second-place Americans. Ghana also was
eliminated, finishing bottom of the group.
“We knew we had to score three goals and
were depending on the result of the Germany
game and we couldn’t do that,” Ronaldo
Ronaldo barely celebrated after slamming
home his goal, giving Portugal its first win
after a 4-0 loss to Germany and 2-2 draw
with the U.S.
Ghana captain Asamaoh Gyan’s 57th-
minute header canceled out an own goal
scored by teammate John Boye in the 31st,
and at that stage it was the African side that
was closer to qualifying.
A 2-1 victory would have put Ghanaians
through but Majeed Waris’ headed chance
that he planted wide of the post in the 60th
was the only genuine opening they created
before Ronaldo’s clincher.
Algeria 1, Russia 1
CURITIBA, Brazil — Algeria qualified for
the World Cup knockout stages for the first
time, with Islam Slimani’s heading in an
equalizer in the 60th minute to give his team
enough competition points to reach the sec-
ond round.
Algeria placed second in Group H behind
Belgium with four points, meaning it will
meet Germany in the Round of 16.
The victory prompted mass celebrations
on the pitch among the players, and had
coach Vahid Halilhodzic shaking his head
with disbelief.
Russia, needing a win to advance, went on
the attack from the start and dominated the
first half with its intricate and swift passing
movements through midfield. The Russians
took the lead as early as the 6th minute
when Alexander Kokorin powerfully headed
in a left-foot cross from Dmitry Kombarov.
Slimani’s equalizer came after Russia
goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev failed to catch a
swinging left-foot free kick from Yacine
Brahimi. That was the second costly error
that Akinfeev has made in the tournament
for Russia.
However, there were indications on the TV
broadcast that a green laser was being shone
toward the goalkeeper just before the free
kick was taken.
Before Algeria’s equalizer, Russia had
chances to double its lead, notably in the
26th minute when Oleg Shatov weaved
through the Algeria midfield but his right-
foot shot drifted wide of the Algeria post.
Belgium 1, South Korea 0
SAO PAULO — Reduced to 10 men for more
than half the match, Belgium still edged South
Korea to finish on top of Group H and elimi-
nate the last Asian team from the World Cup.
With a late goal yet again, Belgium made
the difference in the 78th minute when defend-
er Jan Vertonghen followed up a shot from
teenage striker Divock Origi and tapped in the
“We knew all games were going to be
tough,” said Belgium coach Marc Wilmots.
After three narrow victories and precious lit-
tle beautiful play, Belgium will now play the
United States in Salvador on Tuesday.

After Menlo, Rice walked on at
UCLA, where he caught nine passes
for 69 yards in three years after red-
shirting his freshman season. Last
season, he transferred to UNLV
where he caught 11 balls for 86
yards and scored his lone collegiate
touchdown in the Heart of Dallas
Bowl game.
Rice’s biggest drawback is his
size and speed. Rice ran a 4.68 40-
yard dash time at his Pro Day and is
listed at 5-10, 185 pounds.
Newton, however, believes Rice
offers more than athleticism.
“He’s an incredible team guy.
There’s often a place (on football
rosters) for those kind of guys.
“It’s hard to make a 53-man roster,
but if anyone can do it … he can.”
Newton said he’s been in contact
with Rice throughout his college
days and during his tryout with the
49ers. He said Rice has remained
upbeat throughout the process.
“He texted me when he worked
out with the 49ers,” Newton said.
“I think he was about getting a
chance and focusing on what was
in front of him. He’s definitely had
a positive attitude.”

LONDON — After taking a
tiebreaker by the score of 19-17
on the way to reaching
Wimbledon’s third round for the
first time, John Isner put it quite
succinctly: “I’m no stranger to
matches like this.”
Sure isn’t .
The man who is best known for
winning the longest tennis match
in history did what he does best,
serve well, and beat 62nd-ranked
Jarkko Nieminen of Finland 7-6
(17), 7-6 (3), 7-5 with the help of
32 aces Thursday.
“That tiebreaker was something
else,” said the ninth-seeded Isner,
the only American man remaining
of the 10 who were in the field.
“Fortunately, I won.”
Only one men’s singles
tiebreaker at Wimbledon con-
tained more points than the 36
played by Isner and Nieminen:
Bjorn Borg won a tiebreaker 20-
18 in 1973.
Isner fought off five set points
for Nieminen in that tiebreaker.
And Isner finally converted his
eighth set point when Nieminen
sent a forehand wide.
By winning a pair of tiebreakers
Thursday, Isner improved to 24-12
in the set-deciding format this sea-
“For whatever reason, when I’m
that situation, I always have a lot of
adrenaline, and I’m always serving
my best,” said Isner, who beat
Nicolas Mahut 70-68 in the fifth set
of an 11-hour, 5-minute match spread
over three days in Wimbledon’s
opening round in 2010.
Pounding serves at up to 138 mph
(223 kph), Isner never faced a break
point against Nieminen and while he
only was able to convert 1 of 7
chances of his own, that was enough.
It came in the next to last game, mak-
ing it 6-5 in the third set.
Last year at the All England Club,
Isner needed to quit after only two
games in the second round because of
an injury to his left knee, which was
covered by a thick bag of ice after
Thursday’s match.
His departure in 2013 was part of a
historically poor performance by
U.S. men: They all were out of the
draw before the third round, the first
time that happened at Wimbledon
since 1912, when none entered the
“At least,” he said, “there’s one guy
past the second round.”
Just him, though. The three other
American men in action Thursday
lost. Sam Querrey was beaten 14-12
in the fifth set by No. 14 Jo-Wilfried
Tsonga of France in a match that was
halted because of fading light at 9-all
Wednesday night. Jack Sock went out
in straight sets against No. 8 Milos
Raonic of Canada, and Denis Kudla
did the same against No. 10 Kei
Nishikori of Japan.

Thomas Hart Benton — painter, muralist
and writer from Missouri — often stopped at
College of the Ozarks, in the mountains of
southern Missouri, to visit his longtime
friend and art teacher Steve Miller. Miller
would take Benton to visit art classes,
where Benton would speak at length with
students about their works and art theory.
Benton eventually served as the artist-in-
residence at the College’s first Festival of
the Arts Celebration in 1964. In 1973,
when Benton was 84, he came out of retire-
ment to paint The Sources of Country Music
for the Country Music Hall of Fame in
Nashville. While doing preliminary sketch-
ing and research for the project, Benton vis-
ited College of the Ozarks, which provided
him with accommodations and meals during
his stay. After Benton returned home to
Kansas City, he sent the College a gift as a
thank you for its help and hospitality: his
iconic 1940 egg tempera and oil painting
Departure of the Joads. The painting, com-
missioned by 20th Century Fox to be used
for advertising its film version of John
Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath, shows the
Joad family getting ready to leave Dust
Bowl Oklahoma to seek work in California.
One of Benton’s masterpieces, the painting
was used for movie posters, magazine adver-
tisements and lobby cards, and was even
reproduced billboard size. Departure of the
Joads, now on permanent exhibit in the
Ralph Foster Museum on the College of the
Ozarks campus, continues to evoke strong
emotions around its themes of economic
hardship and family disintegration.
Ralph Foster Museum Curator Jeanelle
Ash said: “Articles from local journals and
newspapers written by Benton’s friends and
fellow artists are fascinating to read, espe-
cially those written by Benton’s good
friend Steve Miller, who was an art instruc-
tor here at the College and former director of
the Ralph Foster Museum. Those articles
along with family photos and letters written
by Benton are held in the museum’s archival
collections. They give a good understand-
ing of Benton’s personal connections to
the history of College of the Ozarks and
into Benton’s fascination with the beauty
of the Ozarks region.”
Foster Museum holds a beloved American cul-
tural artifact: the cut-down 1921 Oldsmobile
Model 46 Roadster seen transporting the
Clampett family to Californy at the begin-
ning of each episode of The Beverly
Hillbillies television show. You can have
your photo taken sitting behind the steering
wheel, in front of a large photo of Uncle Jed,
Granny, Jethro, Ellie May Clampett, Mr.
Drysdale and Miss Hathaway. The customized
vehicle, a touring car body with the frame of a
flatbed truck, was donated to the museum by
series creator Paul Henning, a Missouri
native who was inspired to do the show after
a camping trip in the Ozarks. Although the
Clampett family hometown was never specif-
ically identified, various episodes referred to
the towns of Branson, Springfield, and Silver
Dollar City, all near College of the Ozarks.

OZARKS. Founded as The School of the
Ozarks in 1906, College of the Ozarks is a
private, Christian liberal-arts college with
1,500 students. A work-study program has
always been an integral part of the institu-
tion. The school charges no tuition. Instead,
all full-time students work 15 hours weekly
at one of 80 campus workstations, which
include a fruitcake kitchen (30,000 baked
yearly), a print shop, a greenhouse, a 60-
cow dairy and a student-run hotel and restau-
rant. The College, which discourages debt
and does not participate in any government
or private loan programs, guarantees to meet
the remaining portion of each student’s
expenses so that graduates leave debt-free.
In 1973 The Wall Street Journal described
College of the Ozarks as “Hard Work U.” The
name is now the school’s motto.

Studios to paint an image to advertise Fox’s film version of John Steinbeck’s novel The Grapes

Departure of the Joads, depicting the family as it prepares to leave its ruined Oklahoma farm
for the promise of work in California. Decades later, Benton donated The Departure of the
Joads to College of the Ozarks,near Branson,Missouri,where it is on permanent display at the
school’s Ralph Foster Museum.

‘Reading Rainbow’ gets

LOS ANGELES — LeVar Burton’s “Reading Rainbow”
fundraising effort is getting a boost from a generous pal,

MacFarlane has promised to match up to $1 million in
pledges made on the Kickstarter website so that an online

If such films aren’t handled properly, they
risk alienating both audiences, said Michael
Keane, an expert on China’s creative indus-
tries at the Queensland University of
Technology in Brisbane, Australia. In China,
the core movie-going group of 19-to-25-
year-olds already like Western films, he said.
“They would like `Transformers,’ and as
soon as you start stuffing in Chinese elements,
they can see through it, and you may shoot
yourself in the foot by doing it,” Keane said.
Western studios are adding Chinese ele-
ments to increase their appeal in China,
where films earned $3.6 billion in ticket sales
last year. “Skyfall” was partly set in
Shanghai and Macau. Chinese actress Fan
Bingbing played one of the mutant super-
heroes in “X-Men: Days of Future Past,”
which has earned $114 million in China -
almost a quarter of the movie’s total interna-
tional box office. But the sprinkling of
Chinese elements in “Transformers: Age of
Extinction,” opening in China and North
America on Friday, has gone further than
many recent Hollywood movies.
More than half an hour of its action takes
place in Hong Kong and the crew filmed in
three other Chinese cities. Chinese star Li
Bingbing has a fairly major role and boy band
singer-turned-actor Han Geng has a one-liner.
Areality TV show was held a year before the
movie’s debut to choose four people to play
In one scene a billboard stretches across
most of the screen, advertising a Chinese
liquor. In another product placement, Stanley
Tucci’s character takes a break on a roof and
drinks from a carton of Chinese milk.
Online film critic Zheng Kunjie said the
number of Chinese elements in the film was
“unprecedented” in a Hollywood import. The
familiar scenes and brands make the
“Transformers” movie more realistic to a
Chinese audience than one that employs a
Western stereotype of “a classically beautiful
China” like in “Skyfall,” she said. While
these will make Chinese moviegoers amused
and interested in the film, the Chinese ele-
ments don’t affect the development of the
story, she said.

ting into, and you want more, more, more.
And Bay is the Master of More.
Or just take it from the 11-year-old sit-
ting next to me, who reserved any audible
judgment — he, too was in a trance, though
maybe from sugar intake — until the
moment he saw a Transformer become a
dinosaur. Overwhelmed by the pairing, he
proclaimed: “That’s the sickest thing I’ve
ever seen in my life.” It was as if peanut
butter and jelly had been tasted together for
the first time.
While you ponder where between these
extreme reactions you’ll fall, a quick
update. This time, there’s a whole new
human cast. Most important, Mark
Wahlberg has replaced Shia LaBeouf as,
well, Main Human Guy, and the good news
is that Wahlberg’s grounded quality, rough
charm and really nice biceps make him a
thoroughly welcome presence. The bad
news: He isn’t immune to the numbing
effects of some desperately cheesy dialogue
(Ehren Kruger wrote the screenplay).
Asignificant part of the movie also takes
place in China — clearly a nod to the fran-
chise’s huge market there. Whether such
obvious wooing of the Chinese audience
will work or backfire — the film also
includes very obvious placement of
Chinese products — remains to be seen.
In any case, we begin in Paris, Texas,
where Cade Yeager (Wahlberg), a struggling
inventor, is desperately seeking a big dis-
covery. He’s also a widowed dad, and super-
protective (as the movie incessantly
reminds us) of his high-school daughter,
Tessa (Nicola Peltz, blond and pretty and
ineffective, though the one-note script
does her no favors).
One day, Cade buys a rusty old truck.
Examining it back home, he soon discov-
ers it’s none other than Optimus Prime, the
Autobot hero, seriously damaged.
As Cade works on fixing him up, his
assistant, wisecracking surfer-dude Lucas
(T.J. Miller, mildly amusing), has the dumb
idea of calling the authorities. What he
doesn’t know is that the government —
actually, the head of CIAblack ops, Harold
Attinger (Kelsey Grammer, expertly vil-
lainous) — is plotting to destroy all
remaining Autobots in favor of a man-made
army of Transformers. He’s being helped in
this endeavor by the shadowy KSI corpora-
tion, run by the nasty-but-complicated
Joshua Joyce (Stanley Tucci, giving the
most entertaining performance in the
So now, it’s evil humans pitted against
the trustworthy Autobots. So much for
gratitude. There’s also a subplot involving
Tessa and her secret boyfriend, Shane (Jack
Reynor, underused), whose Irish accent
leads Cade to dismissively call him “Lucky
Charms” — at least until the two bond in
From here, it’s up to you. You can try to
follow the ins and outs of the battling
forces — robot and human, man-made and
alien, ancient and modern — or just watch
things crash into each other, blow up, or
The obvious question: is it too much for
its own good? Bay is very talented at all
things visual, the 3-D works well and the
robots look great. But the final confronta-
tion alone lasts close to an hour, and at
some point, you may find yourself simply
in a daze, unable to absorb any further
action into your brain.
But one viewer’s migraine is another’s
euphoria. You decide.
“Transformers: Age of Extinction,” a
Paramount Pictures release, is rated PG-13
by the Motion Picture Association of
America for “intense sequences of sci-fi
violence and action, language and brief
innuendo.” Running time: 165 minutes.

“American Buffalo” gets its title
from a valuable buffalo nickel, but
a theme of David Mamet’s potent
play is business in America, and
it’s not very pretty.
Aurora Theatre Company is stag-
ing a top-notch production of this
1975 play under the direction of
Barbara Damashek.
The setting is a cluttered resale
shop in Chicago owned by Donny
(Paul Vincent O’Connor). A few
days earlier, Donny had unwitting-
ly sold a buffalo nickel to a cus-
tomer who was more than willing
to pay $90 for it.
Donny deduced that it probably
was worth more than that and has
enlisted his young assistant,
Bobby (Rafael Jordan), to help
him steal it back.
When Donny’s friend Teach
(James Carpenter) arrives and
learns of the plan, he convinces
Donny to bring him in and to leave
Bobby out. Considering that all
three men are liars and that none of
them is truly astute, the plan fiz-
zles out.
During the course of the two-act
play, there’s much talk about busi-
ness, as if the speakers were
experts, but they aren’t. Teach is
probably a two-bit crook, Bobby
is young and dumb, and Donny —
though ostensibly running a legal
operation — is hardly a huge suc-
The greatest pleasure of this pro-
duction is watching two master
actors — O’Connor and Carpenter
— at work. Carpenter’s profanity-
spouting Teach is full of edgy ener-
gy and volatile bravado.
O’Connor’s Donny is more low
key and seemingly rational. He
might not react verbally to some
of Teach’s comments, but his
expressive face reflects his disbe-
lief or skepticism.
Their timing and their handling
of Mamet’s language are endlessly
fascinating, along with their abil-
ity to bring his humor to the fore.
Jordan’s Bobby is definitely not
bright and often vague when
pumped for information. One can’t
be sure if he’s being evasive or if
he’s really as dense as he seems.
However, it’s clear that he admires
Donny and appreciates the fatherly
interest that Donny takes in him.
Director Damashek skillfully
orchestrates the action within
Aurora’s intimate space. Kudos to
fight director Dave Maier, too.
The set by Eric E. Sinkkonen is a
marvel of clutter (props assembled
by Kirsten Royston). The cos-
tumes by Cassandra Carpenter are
right out of the 1970s.
Running just over two hours
with one intermission, this is a
production to be savored, not only
for the quality of the play itself but
also the performances by
Carpenter and O’Connor.
“American Buffalo” will contin-
ue at Aurora Theatre Company,
2081 Addison Ave., Berkeley,
through July 13. For tickets and
information call (510) 843-4822

Gordon said he proposed and has
chaired the Assembly’s Select
Committee on Sea Level Rise, which
has evaluated at-risk areas that could
suffer severe consequences.
“We’ve learned that there are a lot of
different sections at risk around the
state; everything from the Air Force
(base) to wastewater treatment facili-
ties, we’ve learned there’s a threat to
coastal agriculture from saltwater
intrusion. … So there’s a whole vari-
ety of issues that we’re going to need
to pay attention to,” Gordon said.
Many scientists agree that the sea
will rise at least three feet by 2100 and
it’s critical that cities and govern-
ments begin to plan with it in mind,
Pine said.
Friday’s conference is the second in
a series that provides a platform for
officials who lead in creating land use
policies to share ideas, resources and
information. The 100 attendees at the
sold-out conference will be asked to
help make decisions on three key con-
The first will be to decide if San
Mateo County should adopt a cohesive
planning concept that assumes the 3
feet of sea level rise prediction, Pine
said. Officials will also discuss prepar-
ing a countywide sea level rise vulner-
ability assessment and the third issue
will to consider how to fund adapta-
tions, Pine said.
The county’s Bayfront is lined with
developments such as residential
communities and high-tech compa-
nies that are at direct risk of being
affected by sea level rise.
Gordon and Pine said cities and spe-
cial districts must work together and
create a comprehensive planning
scheme to effect meaningful change.
“We need to understand that there’s
some places where we should not
develop. We need to understand there’s
other places where we have to protect
existing developments and, at the end
of the day, there’s going to be costs
related to protecting what’s in place
and adapting in some way. So we’re
going to need to figure out how we pay
for these things over time,” Gordon
An important part of the discussion
will involve evaluating which parts of
the county face the most imminent
danger from extreme storm events like
king tides, Pine said.
Pine said he became increasingly
concerned after speaking with an offi-
cial from Genentech who noted if the
South San Francisco pump station
located near its campus was to flood, it
would shut down the entire facility and
its operations.
Gordon noted “in our immediate
area, probably the greatest economic
risk would be if San Francisco
International Airport was to not be
able to function and at this point, it’s
pretty difficult to move the airport.”
Some ideas Gordon said they’ve gen-
erated in the Assembly committee that
he hopes will evolve are armoring cer-
tain zones with special sea walls,
adding levees and restoring marshes.
Pine said another intent of Friday’s
conference is to create standing work-
ing groups or a joint powers board.
One group would oversee the prepara-
tion of a countywide sea level rise vul-
nerability assessment and the other to
consider funding options for address-
ing necessary plans.
Pine said he would like to consider
creating financing or assessment dis-
tricts and cited Santa Clara County’s
related district as a possible model.
Bringing together those who create
county land use policies and are at the
front lines of preparing for climate
change is critical to ensure the county
doesn’t become paralyzed when the
seas eventually rise, Pine said.
“San Mateo County is known for
having a very collaborative political
environment and if there’s any place
we need to collaborate, it is on the
issue of sea level rise. Because it does
not lend itself to a city-by-city solu-
tion,” Pine said. “So I really think that
San Mateo County is the county most
at risk to sea level rise in the state of
California. And I think we are starting
to take the initial steps to be a leader
in not only California, but in the coun-
try, to addressing the challenges of sea
level rise.”

FRIDAY, JUNE 27, 2014
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Don’t behave
emotionally or overreact if you want to avoid
discord. Feelings will be hurt if you don’t think
before you act. Be mindful of others, and you will
get the same in return.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Take an opportunity to
go through your personal papers yet again. The
documents you thought were missing will come
to light. Financial or legal concerns will proceed
favorably today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t ever be afraid to
ask for help. Admitting that there are some things
that you can’t handle alone may be difficult, but it
is not a sign of weakness.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You can save yourself
worry and doubt if you keep your secrets to yourself. If
you want to get anything done, you will need to do the
work without help from others.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You have everything
you need to fulfill your dreams. Combining all of your
talents efficiently will lead to the success you’ve been
hoping for, so don’t hold back.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — It’s time to
capitalize on an idea that has been on your mind for
some time. When you least expect it, money will come
from a most unusual source.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Remember that all
partnerships are a two-way street. You will stir up a
lot of trouble if you are too demanding. Practice give-
and-take to find peace of mind.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Take any chance you
get to help someone who has aided you in the past.
Your relationship will become stronger as a result of
your kind gesture.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Your unusual,
whimsical attitude will draw people to your side. Take
this opportunity to share your ideas and drum up the
support you need to follow through with your plans.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Your tendency to
talk will take over today. Resist the urge to blurt out
