Financial mismanagement, pub-
lic reproach and a lack of profes-
sional decorum among elected of-
cials are the reasons the San
Mateo County Civil Grand Jury
recommended in a report released
Wednesday the San Mateo County
Harbor District be dissolved.
The civil grand jury report
What is the price of dysfunc-
tion? alleges the special district,
which operates on a $10 million
budget and collects about half of
its revenue from countywide prop-
erty taxes, is mismanaged and its
duties would be better served by
the county and its Board of
Some district ofcials adamant-
ly disagree with the jurys ndings
they said were more sensationalist
than factual and failed to mention
some of the districts signicant
responsibilities and accomplish-
ments. Reaction from members of
the Board of Commissioners var-
ied, with some steadfast the dis-
trict is doing ne and another say-
ing three current commissioners
should be voted out in the
November election.
The district has a checkered his-
tory and has faced prior civil grand
jury investigations and recom-
mendations it be dissolved, said
Dave Pine, president of the Board
of Supervisors.
I think its important to bring
public attention to the fact that
the Harbor District is dysfunction-
al at this time and something
needs to change. I am certainly
intrigued with the idea of dissolv-
ing the district, Pine said. While
were well aware that the Harbor
District is very much struggling
today, its had a history of difcul-
ties. Which again, makes me
think that itll be difcult for the
district to right itself. If this were
the rst time wed ever heard of
these problems, I would have a dif-
ferent reaction.
The district, established by the
Board of Supervisors in 1933,
owns and operates Pillar Point
Harbor north of Half Moon Bay
and has a joint powers agreement
with the city of South San
Francisco to run Oyster Point
Marina. The district also collects
revenue from commercial activi-
ties such as slip fees, sh buying
fees and rent from its retail proper-
ties at Pillar Point Harbor.
The district came under scrutiny
after a stack of uncashed rent
checks surfaced, commissioners

President Barack Obama is greeted by Texas Gov. Rick Perry upon Obamas arrival in Dallas, to discuss a surge of
Latin American young people crossing the U.S.-Mexico border Wednesday. Congressional Republicans on
Wednesday cast a skeptical eye on a White House request for $3.7 billion to address an inux of child migrants
at the U.S. border while Obama met with top critic Perry.
WASHINGTON Tens of thou-
sands of children streaming from
chaotic Central American nations
to the U.S. border have over-
whelmed the governments ability
to respond, senior administration
officials said Wednesday as
President Barack Obama urged
Congress to move swiftly to
approve emergency spending
request for the crisis.
Emerging from a highly antici-
pated meeting with Texas Gov.
Rick Perry, Obama said he was
open to suggestions from Perry
and others that he dispatch
National Guard troops to the bor-
der, but warned such a solution
would only work temporarily. He
said Republicans appealing for
him to embrace their ideas for
addressing the crisis should grant
his request so the government will
have the resources to put those
ideas into action.
The problem here is not major
disagreement, Obama said in
Dallas. If theyre interested in
solving the problem, then this
can be solved. If the preference is
for politics, then it wont be
But on Capitol Hill, Republican
opposition hardened to his $3.7

Tensions between the city of
Burlingame and its local high
school district over maintenance
of Burlingame High Schools pool
have come to a head, with each
side alleging the other isnt doing
its part.
The San Mateo Union High
School District said in a statement
that several of the councilmem-
bers used inappropriate and highly
inflammatory language without
having all the facts at a Monday
night council meeting in accusing
the district of poor maintenance of
the pool, which the district owns.
The city pays for some of the
pool costs in exchange for use of
the pool for its recreation pro-
grams. According to the state-
ment, the city blamed the district
for the decrease in revenue from
the citys community lap swim-
ming program and described the
district as nickel-and-diming the
city for charging it for its share of
electrical usage at the pool and all
of sudden charging for a trivial
expense without any explanation.
This type of rhetoric does not
help resolve issues between two
governmental entities and is dis-
appointing, said the statement
signed by Superintendent Scott
Laurence and Liz McManus, deputy
superintendent of business servic-
es. Asimple call to the district for
information would have avoided

Pueblo painter Mateo Romero told
the Associated Press that a Santa Fe of-

bizarre misunderstanding Monday that
landed him in handcuffs and in the back
of a patrol car.
According to a police report, the of-
cer pulled out a rie and detained
Romero after Maria Markus reported a
burglary in progress at her Santa Fe
Romero said he parked into the pri-
vate driveway after Han Solo, his Shih
Tzu, relieved himself inside the SUV
during a drive to his studio. Romero said
he only wanted to clean the mess.
However, Romero said when Markus
spotted him in her driveway, she boxed
him in with her vehicle and called 911.
I tried to talk to her to explain that I
was cleaning up dog poop, he said.
But she got all hysterical and I just
backed away. I couldnt leave. It was

Maine police get Facebook
boost with stuffed duck
PORTLAND, Maine Police here
believe they have quacked the code for
nding followers on social media.
The 80-ofcer Bangor Police
Department, which serves a city of
about 33,000, has attracted more than
20,000 likes on its Facebook page after
humorous pictures of a stuffed duck were
added. The duck, dubbed Duck of
Justice or DOJ, appears in pictures of
police cars, department members and K-
9 cops, often accompanied with some
pithy text about law enforcement.
I happen to believe that police of-
cers are a pretty humorous bunch, said
the man behind the duck, Sgt. Tim
Cotton, a 17-year veteran Bangor ofcer
with a fondness for the humor of George
Carlin and Jim Gafgan. I want to read
something that at least has some humor-
ous undertones. I wouldnt connect to a
page that I didnt want to read.
Bangor is just one of many police
departments nationwide discovering
that using comedy on social media can
help them interact with the public. One
department, in 10,000-resident
Brimeld Township, Ohio, has earned
more than 155,000 Facebook likes for
its chiefs in-your-face humor about
everything from methamphetamine
busts to lost dogs.
Nancy Marshall, a Maine-based social
media strategist who runs a public rela-
tions rm in the Maine capital of
Augusta, said Bangors site helps resi-
dents humanize the police.

For the second time, a mistrial was
declared after jurors became hopelessly
deadlocked in the attempted rape case of a
motel clerk accused of assaulting a house-
Jurors in the trial of Navjit Singh deliber-
ated ve days but found itself unable to
budge beyond an 8-4 split in favor of acquit-
tal. The jury rst alerted
the court late last week of
its stalemate but Judge
Jack Grandsaert sent
them back into delibera-
tions to continue trying
to reach consensus.
The question now is if
prosecutors will try yet
again to convict Singh,
36, of allegedly groping
and attempting to rape a maid at the Ramada
Inn in South San Francisco on Sept. 9,
In November 2012, a jury in his rst trial
deliberated three days before convicting
Singh of attempted rape, assault with the
intent to rape, sexual battery and false
imprisonment. The following April, Judge
Jonathan Karesh heard the defense argument
for a new trial on several grounds. Karesh
didnt nd any prosecutorial misconduct or
defense incompetence but felt that the race
issue had deprived Singh of due process and
set aside the verdicts.
Prosecutors opted to retry the case earlier
this year but, during jury selection in
March, the defense successfully sought a
mistrial due to newly uncovered video sur-
veillance of public areas like the hallway
that needed reviewing. The video had always
been in the prosecutions custody but was
never opened previously.
Unlike in the rst trial, Singh did not take
the stand to testify on his own behalf.
According to prosecutors, front desk clerk
Singh entered a room where the Spanish-
speaking maid was cleaning a bathtub. After
a verbal exchange, he is accused of grabbed
her, putting his hands down her shirt and
forcing her onto a bed to pull off her cloth-
ing. After a few minutes of the victim
screaming, Singh reportedly got up and
apologized with his hands in a praying pose
before returning to the front desk. The
woman told another maid but asked her not
to tell the manager and police because she
was afraid of losing her job and being
deported back to El Salvador.
Defense attorney John Halley declined to
comment on the case pending the prosecu-
tions retrial decision which is due July 22.
Singh remains free from custody on
$100,000 bail.

A La Honda man already facing
life in prison for allegedly sexual-
ly abusing his young stepdaughter
and her friend was charged with
additional molestation charges for
a total of 40.
After the complaint was amend-
ed, Neil Aunko, 41, waived his
right to a pre-
liminary hear-
ing on the evi-
dence and was
held to answer
on all counts.
He returns to
court July 30 to
enter a Superior
Court plea and
potentially set
a trial date.
Aunko is accused of sexually
assaulting his stepdaughter begin-
ning in 2010 when she was 9 years
until August 2013. The abuse
began quickly after Aunko married
the mother and occurred in both
San Mateo and the La Honda area,
according to prosecutors.
Aunko is accused of abusing the
girl in her bedroom, sometimes
literally pulling her into the room
when she resisted, while her moth-
er slept. Aunko is also charged
with molesting the girls friend at
four different sleepovers by climb-
ing on top of her while she slept
and simulating sex over her cloth-
i ng.
The friend told the stepdaugh-
ters mother what Aunko allegedly
did to her which led the woman to
question her daughter and learn of
the three years of sexual abuse,
according to District Attorney
Steve Wagstaffe.
Aunko left for Washington state
as investigators looked into the
girls claims and was arrested when
he returned to San Mateo County.
Prosecutors said he reportedly
denied all the allegations and
claimed he was often entering the
girls room because the familys
cat would run inside and he was try-
ing to catch the animal.
The new charges are not due to
new facts but because prosecutors
cant make any additions after a
defendant waives his preliminary
hearing, Wagstaffe said.
On top of the various child
molestation charges, Aunko is
also alleged to have committed
sexual offenses against more than
one victim. That allegation carries
a potential life sentence.
Aunko remains in custody with-
out bail.

He was sentenced as a second-

Calkins crashed into the car driv-
en by a sheriffs sergeant on North

ly traveling 75 mph to 80 mph Nov.
29, 2013. The sergeant was hospi-
talized with back pain and Calkins
was also taken to a hospital after
being unable to perform eld sobri-
ety tests.
Responding police ofcers
reported seeing numerous empty
beer cans in Calkins car and a pud-
dle of beer on the drivers side
oorboard, according to prosecu-
tors. At the hospital, an ofcer
reported overhearing Calkins laugh-
ingly telling a CTtechnician that he
was drunk and had been looking
down at his burrito when he crashed.
In May, Calkins pleaded no con-
test to felony drunk driving causing
injury and admitted causing great
bodily injury and having a prior
felony strike conviction. In return,
he was promised no more than 32
months in prison.

PORTOLAVALLEY More than 80 tanks
amassed by a Stanford University-trained
engineer are set to go up for sale in the San
Francisco Bay Area in what is being billed
as one of the largest auctions of military
vehicles ever.
The auction on Friday and Saturday in
Portola Valley will also include gun parts
and miscellaneous military equipment,
including a nearly 42 ton surface-to-surface
missile, according to Auctions America, the
company handling the auction.
The tanks and other vehicles part of
one of the nations most extensive, his-
toric, military vehicle collections were
among those amassed over decades by
Silicon Valley engineer Jacques Littleeld,
who kept them on his family estate up a
winding, forested road above Silicon Valley.
They span from World War I through the Gulf
War, Hunter Chaney, a spokesman for The
Collings Foundation, said.
Littleelds family donated the tanks and
other equipment to the foundation after
Littleelds death in 2009. The foundation
hopes to raise $10 million from the auction
to help build a military vehicle museum at
its Stow, Massachusetts, headquarters,
Chaney said.
This collection is very rare and very
expensive, he said.
Among the tanks up for auction is a World
War II German Panzer IV tank, which is
expected to fetch as much as $2.6 million,
and an M4 Jumbo Sherman Assault Tank,
which could go for as much as $1.6 million.
The foundation is holding on to the items
with the greatest historical signicance,
including a World War I tank, Chaney said.
Potential bidders must register to take part
in the auction. The collection has so far
drawn interest from people from outside the
U.S., including in Australia, France, and
Germany, and in North America, Amy
Christie, a spokeswoman for Auctions
America, said.
Tank collection to be auctioned
By Martha Mendoza
SANTA CRUZ A Silicon Valley success
story turned sordid this week with the arrest of
an upscale prostitute who allegedly left a
Google executive dying on his yacht after
shooting him up with a deadly hit of heroin.
Forrest Hayes, 51, was found dead by the cap-
tain of his 50-foot yacht Escape last
November. At the time, a simple obituary
described him as a beloved husband and father
of ve who enjoyed spending time with his
family and on his boat.
On Wednesday, that got a lot more compli-
cated as Alix Tichelman, 26, of Folsom, stood
handcuffed and mumbling in red jail scrubs fac-
ing manslaughter charges for her role in Hayes
death, as well as drug and prostitution charges.
She is being held on $1.5 million bail.
Surveillance footage from the yacht shows
everything, police said, from when she came
aboard until after Hayes collapsed. Thats when
Tichelman picked up her clothes, the heroin
and needles, casually stepping over Hayes as
he lay dying. She swallowed the last of a glass
of wine, lowered a blind and walked back on the
dock to shore, police said.
Santa Cruz Deputy Police Chief Steve Clark
told the Associated Press on Wednesday that
Hayes had hired Tichelman before, and that
their Nov. 23 encounter was a mutually con-
sensual encounter including the introduction of
the heroin.
Clark said it appears this might not have
been the rst time she left someone in trouble
without calling 911 or trying to help. Without
elaborating, he said his agency is cooperating
with police in a different state on a similar case.
Theres a pattern of behavior here where she
doesnt seek help when someone is in trouble,
he said.
News vans gathered outside Hayes hilltop
estate overlooking the glittering Monterey
Bay on Tuesday. The ve-bedroom home is on
the market for $4.2 million. The yacht has
been sailed out of the harbor to the Bay Area.
Hayes widow has not spoken publicly and a
blog created in his memory was deleted
Tuesday. On the website, friends and co-work-
ers were seemingly unaware of how he died.
They fondly described their time together,
Christmas parties on his boat, engineering
teams at Sun Microsystems, traveling to China
for Apple and most recently at Google, where
they said he was involved in the Glass eyewear
He had life wired, he really liked his job,
was spending a lot more time with his family,
cruising around in his boat. I am really grateful
that Forrests last moments were happy ones,
wrote a friend in December.
Clark said its not clear if Hayes was a fre-
quent drug user, and that in the video, it appears
he needed Tichelman to help him shoot up.
Clark described Tichelman as a high-end pros-
titute, who lived three hours away and charged
He said she had other clients from Silicon
Valley, home to about 50 billionaires and tens
of thousands of millionaires, where the case
was making waves Wednesday.
Theres no question that Silicon Valley feels
different than it felt 28 years ago when I moved
here, said Russell Hancock, president of Joint
Venture Silicon Valley, an organization focused
on the local economy and quality of life.
Something has happened. We used to be a
Valley full of techies living middle class lives,
and now were a Valley of the uber-rich carrying
toy poodles around with them.

abruptly canceled and restarted and commer-
cial shing industry representatives claims
theyre misrepresented.
Im cautiously optimistic that some-
thing good is going to come out of this,
said sherman Geoff Bettencourt, vice pres-
ident of the Half Moon Bay Seafood
Marketing Association. However, I have a
lot of concerns that theres been reports like
this before and the district has managed to
get away from answering to it.
Room for improvement
But the district is already working to
improve through starting its strategic busi-
ness plan on Thursday night and the ve
commissioners have been meeting with a
facilitator, said Harbor District General
Manager Peter Grenell.
Theres always room for improvement
and to that extent that strategic business
plan process will enable us to make big
strides in improving various things that
will be very responsive to some of the con-
cerns that some people may have just now.
But our concern, bottom line with the grand
jury report, it doesnt provide an accurate
picture of the harbor district, Grenell said.
Grenell and commissioners Wi l l
Holsinger, Robert Bernardo and Pietro
Parravano noted several issues werent
given fair notation in the report and painted
the district in an unfair light. The district is
on its way to paying off a $20 million loan
to the Division of Boating and Waterways
early and neither the city of South San
Francisco nor the division were requested to
Im going to be focused on communica-
tion. The people who lose out are the
general public because theyre not going to
understand the value of their public harbors
and the important work that the harbor
does, Bernardo said.
The district oversees a variety of infra-
structure and services from breakwater con-
struction to an RV park. The jury recom-
mends passing off some of its responsibili-
ties such as turning over maintenance of the
West Trail near Mavericks to the county
Parks Department.
The district also sponsors and funds the
dredging of Surfers Beach south of the har-
bor, which the report recommends the city
of Half Moon Bay take over.
Grenell said at the time the district began
these two operations, no other agency was
willing to do so.
The Harbor District over the years has
been playing and continues to play a spe-
cial if not unique role in that part of the
coast, Grenell said.
The Local Agency Formation
Commission will consider conducting a
municipal service review later in the year,
said LAFCo Executive Director Martha
Poyatos. The Board of Supervisors, any
city, district or a majority of the voters can
apply to have the district dissolved,
Poyatos said. However, there would need to
be willing successor agencies to take over
the districts roles, Poyatos said.
The district, the Board of Supervisors,
LAFCo and Half Moon Bay have 90 days to
respond to the grand jury report.
The report states the varied responsibili-
ties of the district require the attention of
more than part-time elected ofcials and, at
minimum, the commissioners should
acquire specialty training and learn to gov-
ern collegially.
At the release of the report, Nicole David
and Tom Mattusch announced their candida-
cies for three Harbor Commission seats up
for grab in November and Commissioner
Sabrina Brennan said the surere way for a
better district is a new board. The three
incumbents on the ballot are Bernardo,
Holsinger and Jim Tucker.
The fastest or quickest way to bring
about change would be to elect new harbor
commissioners in the November elections
and obviously that means not supporting
the incumbents, Brennan said.
Holsinger said the dysfunction ties back
to Brennan but that the board isnt unique in
having members who dont get along.
Its sad to see the grand jury saying that
because there is misbehavior by commis-
sioners or differences in getting along that
theres reason to justify the dissolution, it
shouldnt follow. Theres good sound rea-
sons why the district was formed.
Parravano said the district needs to take
the report seriously and move forward with
any recommendations the districts hired
facilitator will make.
I think we need to put the disagreements
and the personalities aside and address the
recommendations, Parravano said. We can
do it, we just have to be working together.
Financial reporting
The grand jury investigation revealed
that, over the last ve scal years, the dis-
tricts operating expenses exceeded its rev-
enue from fees or services by $18 million
and is therefore dependent on property tax
Last year, district salaries and benet s
made up 103 percent of its operating rev-
enue and the structural decit has led to an
annual depletion of reserves, according to
the report.
Grenell, Holsinger and Bernardo said the
repayment of the loan wasnt included in the
report and has been an achievement during
tough economic times. Holsinger noted the
district has more than $40 million in assets
and $11.5 million identified as reserves
allocated for different purposes.
Supervisor Don Horsley said, although
the district may have reserves, it needs a
sustainable nancial plan.
The thing that appears to be missing is
that they have some unfunded long-term lia-
bilities both with pensions and with health
care and their nancial picture in their audit
reports is inadequate without those unfunded
liabilities, Horsley said.
Brennan said she was particularly inter-
ested in the recommendations regarding the
budget and the need for transparency by
clarifying how tax money is being spent.
Because the district also supports a com-
mercial shing industry, the report recom-
mends the district clearly separate what
expenditures benet private enterprises.
Bettencourt said he was taken aback by
the notion of public money being spent on
a private industry. He added the district has
done little in the way of improving infra-
structure just to the benet of the commer-
cial shermen.
Pine said its important the public is
aware of the districts status and regardless if
its dissolved, Harbor District staff and of-
cials need to shape up.
They need to do whatever they can to put
all the bad history behind them and try to
conduct the day-to-day duties of the Harbor
District as professionally and competently
as possible, Pine said. But thats easier
said than done.

full containment expected by the end of the

Barack Obama would ask Congress for $615
million to help ght the res this season.
Fire crews also increased containment of
several wildres covering a combined 33
square miles of desert rangeland in eastern
Nevada and southwestern Utah, including the
14-square-mile Lages Fire. No homes or
other structures were threatened.
The California re started Friday near the
lake about 75 miles northeast of San
Francisco that is a popular recreation spot
that attracts boaters and campers during the
Fourth of July weekend. It brought evacua-
tions and road closures that were all canceled
by Monday.
It was fueled by thick, brittle brush that
has not burned for at least two decades and
was fanned by gusty winds amid heat exceed-
ing 100 degrees.

State brief
GLENDALE Bo Cuketieh inadvertently
let a ne mist from a leaky hose soak the
front lawn of a Southern California home
Wednesday before considering that such
water waste could merit a $500 ne under
unprecedented restrictions proposed by
California regulators.
Cuketieh, a 35-year-old welder living at
the Glendale home, said conservation is
necessary, but he chafed at the maximum
Thats the difference between me making
my house payment or not, said Cuketieh,
who was shirtless and hunched over in the
98 degree heat as he lled his car radiator. I
live from one week to the next, and I have a
pretty decent job.
Such considerations could soon become
common as state water regulators are set to
consider draft emergency regulations next
week in Sacramento, invoking for the rst
time mandatory statewide restrictions on
residential outdoor water use.
The State Water Resources Control Board
projects the proposed restrictions could
save enough water to supply more than 3.5
million people for a year.
A combination of mandatory and volun-
tary restrictions so far has resulted in a
statewide water use reduction of 5 percent
through May far short of the 20 percent
sought by Gov. Jerry Brown.
Regulators are hopeful that Californians,
with some nudging, will respond as they did
during the drought of 1976 and 1977.
Brown happened to be governor then, as
well, and called for statewide conservation
About a third of the states residents
responded, enough to voluntarily reduce
consumption by about 20 percent, accord-
ing to state records.
I like to say, having a browning lawn
and a dirty car is a badge of honor, said
Felicia Marcus, chairwoman of the water
resources board.
About 30 percent of the states water sup-
pliers already have imposed mandatory
restrictions that include limits on irriga-
tion, washing vehicles and lling fountains
and pools.
Mary Ann Dickinson, president of the
Chicago-based Alliance for Water
Efciency, said she knows of no state that
currently has a statewide restriction on out-
door water use.
The regulations the board will consider
Tuesday aim to put muscle behind conserva-
tion efforts and would give more authority
to law enforcement to impose the restric-
tions, though it will be up to local govern-
ments on how and when to act.
Urban water agencies would have to
require mandatory restrictions on outdoor
water use, if they havent done so already.
Agencies without water plans would have to
restrict outdoor irrigation to no more than
two days each week or take other mandatory
conservation steps.
Statewide regulations would prohibit
landscape watering that causes runoff onto
sidewalks or streets, washing sidewalks,
driveways and other hard surfaces, using a
hose to wash a vehicle unless the hose has a
shut-off nozzle and using drinking water in
a fountain or decorative water feature unless
the water is recirculated.
Violations would be punishable by nes
of up to $500 a day, although most cities are
likely to have a sliding scale that starts with
a warning.
The board is initially targeting outdoor
use because that accounts for much of the
water waste, Marcus said.
The California Department of Water
Resources estimates that cities and suburbs
use about a fth of the states water, about
half going outdoors.
Agriculture is by far the greatest water
user, accounting for 75 percent of the states
Kevin Wattier, general manager of the
Long Beach Water Department, said the
agency already has mandatory restrictions
but added that his districts starting $50 ne
is too small to bother enforcing. The possi-
bility of heftier penalties alone should stop
guzzlers, he said.
Tim Quinn, executive director of the
Association of California Water Agencies,
said he doesnt expect nes to be imposed
on a large scale, but he said the regulations
would push Californians to take the drought
seriously. The word voluntary doesnt say
serious to most people; the word manda-
tory does, Quinn said.
Marcus, the water board chairwoman, said
the proposed regulations are reasonable
What were proposing here as an open-
ing salvo is the bare minimum, Marcus
told reporters during a conference call. If it
doesnt rain later this fall, we certainly will
consider more stringent measures.
She said board members might require
efforts to stop leaks that account for an esti-
mated 10 percent of water use, stricter land-
scape restrictions and encouraging water
agencies to boost rates for consumers who
use more than their share of water.
Were not trying to spank people. Were
trying to ring a bell and get peoples atten-
tion, she said.
We have communities struggling for
water and bathing out of buckets, Marcus
said. Its fair, she said, for the state to
require that at a minimum, that people
dont water sidewalks, that people dont let
their water run when theyre washing their
State hopes fines up to
$500 slow water waste
The word voluntary doesnt
say serious to most people;
the word mandatory does.

Thursday July 10, 2014 THEDAILYJOURNAL
By Paul Larson

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

Who Or What Is Gladstone And
Why This Is Important
Exp. 7/31/14

WASHINGTON Tax credits for families
that dont qualify. Medicare payments for
treatments that might not be necessary.
Unemployment benets for people who are
secretly working. Federal agencies reported
making $100 billion in payments last year
to people who may not have been entitled to
receive them.
Congressional investigators say the g-
ure could be even higher.
The amounts here are absolutely stagger-
ing, said Rep. John Mica, R-Fla. Its over
$100 billion each of the last ve years.
Thats a staggering half a trillion dollars in
improper payments.
Mica chairs the House Oversight govern-
ment operations subcommittee, which held
a hearing on improper payments Wednesday.
Each year, federal agencies are required to
estimate the amount of improper payments
they issue. They include overpayments,
underpayments, payments to the wrong
recipient and payments that were made with-
out proper documentation.
Some improper payments are the result of
fraud, while others are unintentional, caused
by clerical errors or mistakes in awarding
benets without proper verication.
In 2013, federal agencies made $97 bil-
lion in overpayments, according to agency
estimates. Underpayments totaled $9 bil-
lion. That adds up to $106 billion in
improper payments, or 3.5 percent of all the
payments made by the federal government.
The Obama administration has reduced the
amount of improper payments since they
peaked at $121 billion in 2010. The admin-
istration has stepped up efforts to measure
improper payments, identify the cause and
develop plans to reduce them, said Beth
Cobert, deputy director of the White House
budget ofce.
Federal agencies recovered more than $22
billion in overpayments last year, she said.
We have taken an aggressive approach to
attacking waste, fraud and abuse within fed-
eral agencies, and we will continue to seek
out new and innovative tools to help us in
this ght, Cobert told the subcommittee.
However, a new report by the Government
Accountability Ofce questions the accuracy
of agency estimates, suggesting that the real
tally could be higher. The GAO is the inves-
tigative arm of Congress.
The federal government is unable to
determine the full extent to which improper
payments occur and reasonably assure that
appropriate actions are taken to reduce
them, Beryl H. Davis, director of nancial
management at the GAO, told the subcom-
Davis said some agencies dont develop
estimates for programs that could be suscep-
tible to improper payments. She also said
estimates by the Defense Department may
not be reliable.
The Pentagon estimates that less than 1
percent of its payments are improper.
However, the GAO found last year that the
Pentagons estimates for 2011 were neither
reliable nor statistically valid because of
long-standing and pervasive nancial man-
agement weaknesses.
We have reason to believe that the num-
bers are sound but we certainly understand
why the skepticism exists, Mark E.
Easton, the Defense Departments deputy
chief nancial ofcer, told the subcommit-
I hope you wont stand too strongly
behind your numbers, Rep. Gerald
Connolly, D-Va., replied.
The largest sources of improper payments
are government health care programs,
according to agency estimates. Medicares
various health insurance programs for older
Americans accounted for $50 billion in
improper payments in the 2013 budget year,
far exceeding any other program.
Improper payments by government top $100B

ing complaints about poor patient
care, long wait times and other
James Tuchschmidt, the No. 2
official at the Veterans Health

care arm, apologized on behalf of

Utah to appeal gay marriage
ruling to the Supreme Court
going directly to the nations
highest court to challenge an
appellate ruling that gay couples
have a constitutional right to
marry, the state attorney generals
ofce announced Wednesday.
If the U.S. Supreme court decides
to take the case, it will be the rst
time the top court considers gay
marriage since justices last year
struck down part of the federal
Defense of Marriage Act.
It is a milestone that when the
Supreme Court reconvenes in
October, there will be at least one
(gay marriage) petition pending,
said Jon Davidson, director of
Lambda Legal, which pursues liti-
gation on LGBTissues nationwide.
The high court is under no obli-
gation to the take the case, and it
could wait for rulings from one or
more of the ve other appellate
courts with gay marriage cases
pending, legal scholars say.
But legal experts predict the
nations top court will consider a
gay marriage case sometime in
2015 or later.

leaving a spoon or fork at work or the like.
But one particular fork
is was? my
favorite. It was the per-
fect length, was a classic
shape wi t hout overl y
fl owery or scrol l -l i ke
design and most impor-
tantly was the perfect
weight. I like a heft to
my obj ect s. Pens, i n par-
ticular, need to feel like
Im actually holding an
i nst rument . The same
goes with flatware. Let
the user feel like they
have somet hi ng momen-
tous in hand and not just a thin, tinny dollar store
knockoff that would make Martha Stewart cringe.
I am not alone in having a fondness for a particu-
lar item over all other equally suitable pieces. My
brother growing up always grabbed a particular
mug for his coffee and didnt hesitate to grumble if
I grabbed it first for my hot chocolate. My father, I
remember, always insisted on a specific knife to
carve up his barbecued masterpieces as though the
other available blades wouldnt do the meat justice
There are wine glasses that just feel better in the
hand and dont even get me started on feeling pro-
priety about a certain pillow that is the perfect
combination of squishy and firm.

the preferred stuffed raccoon or rubber squeaky ball
at the bottom rather than the more accessible
bones and rope braids on top. This could also be
the reason why despite a packed and varied closet, I
as I imagine many people still grab for the
favorite sweater or pair of shoes. We are creatures
of habi t and oft en t hose habi t s i nvol ve domest i c
creature comforts.
Sadly, I do not have a full set of kitchenware
mat chi ng t hi s wonder-fork. I came i nt o possessi on
of it many moons ago during a college summer job
at a now-defunct big box retailer that sold every-
t hi ng from el ect roni cs t o j ewel ry t o home appl i-
ances and ki t chenware. In hi ndsi ght , i t s amazi ng
how well an otherwise clueless salesperson like
myself could sell a high-end blender wearing a
short dress and speaking with great authority about
speed and function. During one lunch break, I real-
ized I had forgotten to include a fork with my plas-
tic ware of leftover whatever. A quick trip to the
kitchen department where forks were Velcro-fas-
tened to display boards solved the dilemma.
Unfortunately, after taking the fork home to wash I
never remembered to bring it back to its rightful
spot . Oops.
Id actually forgott en about t he fork as of l at e,
opting usually to just grab whatever one is handy.
But a recent office kitchen chat about dish prefer-
ences made me wonder where it had gotten off t o. I
searched the drawer. No dice. I looked in the sink.
Nope. A peek into my few reusable lunch bags just
i n case. Zi l ch.
Could it be that after years of holding the utensil
place of honor the fork had gone missing? Perhaps
others in the household, in a fit of cleanliness and
decorating frenzy, tossed out what didnt mat ch.
Maybe the fork took a cue from Kung Fu and
decided to walk the earth looking for its rightful
previous home. Some could say it was karma for
my earl i er i nadvert ent shopl i ft i ng.
Or, i t i s si mpl y j ust a si gn t o t oss t he ent i re

Devils Slide trail is ne as it is
Afew suggestions and comments for
those trail-walkers concerned about
safety issues and what-if scenarios
(Report: Devils Slide Trail needs
safety upgrades in the July 9 edition of
the Daily Journal).
Leave your children home or make a
better effort to watch them closely
especially near the railings.
Make an attempt to walk without a cell-
phone on or worried about not being
connected for one hour. Absorb witnessing
some of the Bay Areas most scenic sights.
Is the cost for emergency phones worth
it or necessary for a 1.3-mile hike?
When was the last time a horse slipped
and hurt anyone because of fog? Horse
droppings should be a bigger concern.
If any additional costs are to be considered,
I suggest lower water-drinking spigots for
the many animals accompanying their
owners. Kudos to the parks department and
our Board of Supervisors for nally getting
this awesome trail opened.

Lopez shooting: gun altered
The Associated Press story about the
fatal shooting of a teenage boy by a
deputy in Santa Rosa lacked some im-
portant facts. The story, as it
appeared in the Daily Journal, did not
mention that the replica automatic
rifle carried by 13-year-old Andy
Lopez lacked the bright plastic tip re-
quired by law to show the gun is not
real (Deputy who shot teen wont
face charges in the June 8 edition of
the Daily Journal).
Photos on television and in other pa-
pers showed clearly that the gun
resembled an assault weapon. Also
missing in the account was the district
attorneys disclosure that Lopez had
taken marijuana, which may have im-
paired his judgment.
The boys death is a tragedy, but if
there is a lesson here it is that the days
of playing cowboys and Indians are
James O. Clifford Sr.
Redwood City
Afew lessons taken from history on leader-
ship seem to be in order, particularly in San
Carlos. The rst is that sometimes leader-
ship means not participating in meetings
that, on principle, ought not to be happen-
ing in the rst place. For example, during
the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln
refused to acknowledge in any manner the
so-called presidency of Jefferson Davis and,
on at least three occasions, turned away en-
voys sent by Davis to Washington.
The second lesson is that just because
an idea or plan is put forward does not
mean it deserves agreement between the
two parties, even if it involves compro-
mise. For example, President Reagan
walked away from an agreement with
General Secretary Gorbachev at the
Reykjavic Summit in 1986. Some were
hugely critical of Reagan at the time, but
history has proven he did the right thing.
The nal lesson is that when you take
a loss, do so graciously.

The Sacramento Bee
n a vote that should prompt
other California policymakers to
act, the San Francisco Board of
Supervisors approved an ordinance
insisting that people who suffer from
severe mental illness receive care,
rather than leave them to languish on
the streets.
Supervisor Mark Farrell authored
the ordinance creating an assisted out-
patient treatment program. San
Francisco supervisors voted 9-2 for it
on Tuesday, sending it to Mayor Ed
Lee for his expected signature.
San Francisco is the fourth county
to fully embrace a 2002 state statute
known as Lauras Law, joining
Nevada, Yolo and Orange counties.
San Francisco is by far the most liber-
al, which is noteworthy. In the past,
liberals have been the strongest
opponents of insisting that people
who are so sick that they dont know
theyre ill receive care.
The adoption of a Lauras Law ordi-
nance doesnt mean individuals will
be forced into locked psychiatric
wards. Rather, judges could issue
orders compelling people to receive
care while living in their homes.
Individuals are expected to attend
therapy and take anti-psychotic med-
ication if psychiatrists deem them to
be necessary. Family, police and oth-
ers could request that authorities eval-
uate individuals for inclusion in the
program. To become subject to it, a
person must have been hospitalized
for mental illness, or jailed in recent
The 2002 law legislation that
authorized counties to adopt such an
ordinance was named for Laura
Wilcox, a college sophomore who
was working as a temporary recep-
tionist at the Nevada County
Behavioral Health Department when a
mentally ill man shot and killed her.
Some misguided advocates for men-
tally ill people take the view that
people should never be coerced to get
care. But clearly, the use of voluntary
treatment doesnt work for some peo-
ple. Farrell estimates that fewer than
1,000 of San Franciscos 780,000
residents might become part of the
Other counties should take note of
San Franciscos action, as should
Californias congressional delega-
Rep. Tim Murphy, a Pennsylvania
Republican, is pushing HR 3717,
which would free federal funds for
expanded care for the most severely
mentally ill people, and relax federal
privacy law that denies family mem-
bers access to information about men-
tally ill loved ones. House Majority
Leader Kevin McCarthy, of
Bakerseld, ought to make this issue
a priority.
Republicans who have not joined
Murphy are Reps. Doug LaMalfa of
Richland, Tom McClintock of Elk
Grove and Jeff Denham of Turlock.
Democrats Doris Matsui of
Sacramento and John Garamendi of
Walnut Grove have not signed on,
Several congressional members
were in the Legislature in 2002 and
voted for Lauras Law, including
McClintock, Rep. Jim Costa of
Fresno and Rep. Jackie Speier of San
Mateo. They should add their voices
in support of Murphys bill.
Some people say care in the form of
assisted outpatient treatment is the
last resort. Its not. The last resort is
when mentally ill people commit sui-
cide, become victims of violence, or
commit crimes that land them in
prison. In San Francisco, Farrell is
not seeking to repeal anyones rights.
To the contrary, he is insisting that
people have a right to care.
A vote for compassion

Big movers

NEW YORK Corporate earnings
season got off to a positive start
Wednesday, helping lift the stock mar-
ket after two days of declines.
The market opened higher and
remained modestly higher throughout
the day. Stocks climbed further after the
Federal Reserve released minutes from
its latest policy meeting in June.
The biggest gainer in the Standard &
Poors 500 index was Alcoa. The alu-
minum giants earnings, which
investors consider to be the ofcial start
of the quarterly corporate earnings sea-
son, came in well above Wall Streets
expectations. Alcoa earned $138 mil-
lion, or 18 cents a share, compared with
analysts estimates of 12 cents a share,
according to FactSet. Alcoa rose 84
cents, or 6 percent, to $15.69.
As companies begin reporting their
second-quarter results, investors will be
looking for signs that the strengthening
U.S. economy has translated into higher
sales and prots. Analysts expect earn-
ings increased 6.6 percent in the three
months through June compared with the
previous year, according to S&P Capital
IQ, a research rm.
Investors argue that with stocks trad-
ing near all-time highs, its now up to
companies to show whether or not these
record high prices can be justied.
Stocks are not cheap, and we need to
be assured that these companies growth
is going to continue, said Quincy
Krosby, market strategist with
Prudential Financial.
The next big name to report will be the
major U.S. bank Wells Fargo, which
reports Friday. The bank is one of the
countrys biggest mortgage lenders, and
investors will be looking for Wells out-
look on the housing market.
Im looking for a good, but not a
great, earnings season, said Michael
Fredericks, portfolio manager of the
Multi-Asset Income Fund at BlackRock.
We really need to see the guidance from
companies, if management teams are as
upbeat as the market.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose
78.99 points, or 0.5 percent, to
16,985.61. The S&P 500 index rose
9.12 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,972.83
and the Nasdaq composite rose 27.57
points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,419.03.
The market kept up its positive
momentum following the latest report
from the Federal Reserve.
Policymakers at the Fed have come up
with a rough timetable for when the cen-
tral banks bond-buying program will
wind down, according to minutes from
the banks most recent meeting. They
generally agreed that the program will
end in October, if the economy contin-
ues to improve at this pace.
The Fed is currently buying $35 bil-
lion a month in bonds and has been cut-
ting back by $10 billion a month at each
meeting since December. The program is
designed to keep interest rates low to
stimulate borrowing and economic
The bond market turned higher after
the Feds announcement. The yield on
the 10-year U.S. Treasury note fell to
2.55 percent from 2.56 percent Tuesday,
a reversal from earlier in the day, when
yields were 2.58 percent. Bond yields
fall when prices rise.
In individual company news:
American Airlines rose $1.73, or 4.3
percent, to $41.98. The worlds largest
airline raised its sales forecast for the
second quarter, typically the busiest time
of year. The news helped lift other airline
stocks, including Delta, which rose 1.5
percent. Airline stocks had taken a beat-
ing earlier this week.
The Container Store, which went
public less than a year ago, plunged
$2.27, or 8 percent, to $24.80. CEO
William Tindell warned that the compa-
ny was in a retail funk and that the
sluggish sales of the winter seemed to be

WASHINGTON Farmers and
ranchers who suffered heavy live-
stock and grazing losses over the
last three years due to extreme
weather have been quick to take
advantage of newly available dis-
aster relief funds, the U.S.
Department of Agriculture said
As of July 2, the agency has dis-
tributed more than 106,000 pay-
ments totaling $1.2 billion in
relief funds in three months, the
progress report said. Thats a little
less than half the $2.5 billion the
USDAestimated would be spent on
cases from 2011 to 2014. The
funds encompass several programs
for disaster relief included in the
farm bill, which was approved in
Among the communities anx-
ious for the funds to become avail-
able were South Dakota ranchers
who suffered historic losses during
an unusual early-season blizzard
last October. An estimated 43,000
cattle and other livestock died,
with individual ranchers suffering,
in some cases, more than $1 mil-
lion in losses. The storm also
affected farms and ranches in
North Dakota.
USDA did not provide data for
individual states, so it wasnt clear
which were quickest to take advan-
tage of the new program.
Forty states, including the
Dakotas, have begun to receive
disaster payments that expired in
2011 but were retroactively
renewed when Congress passed the
new farm bill this year. The funds
are available to help ranchers and
farmers who have suffered through
blizzards, persistent droughts and
other unexpected weather condi-
tions. That includes many states
in southern Plains, like Texas,
which dealt with severe drought in
2011 and 2012, and California,
which is still in a drought.
Most of the disaster relief pro-
grams will remain available until
early next year for those ling for
losses from 2011 until early 2014.
But the USDA will stop accepting
applications for Emergency
Assistance for Livestock,
Honeybees and Farm-Raised Fish
Program, known as ELAP, on Aug.
The other programs, including
one for livestock losses suffered
due to drought or adverse weather,
and a tree assistance program, will
continue to take retroactive appli-
cations until next year. The pro-
grams will provide the same relief
for future disasters until the farm
bill expires in 2018.
Agriculture Secretary Tom
Vilsack said the progress report
released Wednesday showed that
the relief programs were moving
smoothly. At the request of
President Barack Obama, he said,
he expedited USDAs implementa-
tion of the program, with applica-
tions accepted in April, just 60
days after the farm bill was signed
into law.
Vilsack said the agency had set
ambitious goals and that it was
now operating efciently to deliv-
er relief.
Farmers and ranchers who wait-
ed two and a half years for a farm
bill are now getting some relief,
Vilsack said.

Tour ofcials announced Wednesday.
The title sponsorship is the rst
the 16-year-old tournament has had
since it was played as the Legends
Reno-Tahoe Open in 2008 and
2009. The event has been strug-
gling to nd a sponsor since.
This years tournament has a $3
million purse and is set for July 31-
Aug. 3 at Montreux Golf & Country
Club between Reno and Lake Tahoe.
Tournament director Chris Hoff
said PGATour policy prohibits him
from revealing details of the agree-
ment but said it is in the range of
$1 million a year.
The important thing to note here
is the investment is signicant and
its for at least four years, Hoff said.
I dont want to say it legitimizes
us but it certainly elevates us, he
said. Weve got a global, publicly
traded company that not only real-
ized the value of the PGATour, but is
yet another company that recog-
nizes the Reno-Tahoe area and what
a fantastic place this is to live, work
and play.

After Barbarians leadoff hitter John Carey

Burns got stubborn to the strike zone. He
started each of the rst 11 Barbarians in the
game with rst-pitch strikes. He only got
into trouble once all night when the
Barbarians had runners at second and third
with one out. But Burns buckled down to
strike out the next two batters, including
the nal out of the inning by way of a three-
pitch punch-out.

must pay about $14 mil-
lion in economic losses and a quarter of the
pain and suffering sum, adding about $1
million more.
Girardi had asked for more than double
that sum but still considers it a victory.
Stows father Dave Stow said the amount
was a lot better than what we had.
He did get some money to help the future
and thats what we wanted we wanted
help, Dave Stow said. Hes not going to
be 100 percent, maybe for a long time,
maybe never. What he gets is going to help
him through now, and thats what he needs.

SAN FRANCISCO Hunter Pence home-
red and drove in two runs, Matt Cain tossed
six strong innings and the San Francisco
Giants spoiled Jason Hammels debut for
Oakland with a 5-2 victory over the
Athletics on Wednesday night.
Cain (2-7) allowed two runs and ve hits for
his rst win since May 15 against the Miami
Marlins. He struck out four and walked two to
help the Giants snap Oaklands six-game win-
ning streak.
Hammel, acquired by the As along with fel-
low right-hander Jeff Samardzija from the
Chicago Cubs last week for three top prospects,
disjointed the thumb on his glove hand but
stayed in the game. He left after giving up six
hits and three runs two earned in ve
innings, striking out three and walking three.
Stephen Vogt homered and Jed Lowrie had an
RBI single for Oaklands only runs.
The As routed the Giants 5-0 and 6-1 in the
rst two games of the Bay Bridge Series in
Oakland and looked every bit like the team with
the best record in baseball while doing it.
Back in the comforts of glitzy AT&T
Park, though, the Giants offense nally
showed signs of life. San Francisco nished
with 10 hits and took advantage of its scor-
ing opportunities.
With one out in the second inning, Yoenis
Cespedes bobbled Joe Paniks single in left
eld. By the time the strong-armed Cespedes
corralled the ball and threw home, Gregor
Blanco already had crossed the plate.
Buster Poseys RBI single gave the Giants a
2-0 lead in the third. Vogt homered leading off
the fourth for Oakland, sending a slider from
Cain over the stands in right and onto the walk-
way outside the ballpark for his third long ball
this season.
Pence homered in the fourth to put the Giants
up 3-1. It was Pences 12th home run and rst
since June 21 at Arizona.
While the Giants finally got the bats
going, Cain kept finding ways to mini-
mize the As rallies.

ground out with two runners on in the fth,

Defensive battle

By Jamey Keaten
ARENBERG, France Reigning champi-
on Chris Froome crashed twice and quit the
Tour de France on Wednesday during a chaot-
ic, nerve-jangling, lthy fth stage full of
Froome fell even before the seven cobble-
stone patches on the slick road from Ypres,
Belgium, to Arenberg-Porte du Hainaut in
France. Riders had known months ago about
the bone-jarring course; incessant rain made
it even more treacherous.
The withdrawal of the Team Sky leader left
the race wide open with 16 stages still left.
Overall race leader Vincenzo Nibali wasted
little time in speeding ahead, notably after he
saw that his other big rival for the title this
year, two-time Tour victor Alberto Contador,
had trouble on the second run on cobbles.
Sensing the danger from the rain, race
organizers scrapped two of the nine sched-
uled cobblestone patches, and reduced the
stage by three kilometers (two miles). But
that still wasnt enough to stop many riders
from tumbling.
Froome, already nursing pain in his left
wrist from a crash on Tuesday, took his third
and last spill in two days about halfway
through the stage. With a cut under his right
eye, the Team Sky leader limped over to a
team car, climbed in, and drove away.
Froome tweeted he was devastated to have
to withdraw. Injured wrist and tough condi-
tions made controlling my bike near to
impossible, he wrote. He wished luck to new
Sky leader Richie Porte of Australia and his
other teammates for the rest of the race.
The last time a defending champion aban-
doned the Tour was ve-time winner Bernard
Hinault of France in 1980, according to
French cycling statistics provider
Nibali, too, was one of several high-prole
riders who crashed, recovered and excelled on
the 152.5-kilometer (95-mile) route. The
Italian nished third and extended his lead. He
and second-place Jakob Fuglsang of Denmark
were 19 seconds behind stage winner Lars
Boom of Denmark.
This is a special, special day for me, said
Boom, who rides for Belkin Pro Cycling. I
was really looking forward to the cobble-
Overall, Nibali leads Astana teammate
Fuglsang by 2 seconds. Cannondale rider
Peter Sagan of Slovakia was third, 44 seconds
back. Contador, breathing hard under a mask
of mud at the nish, lost about 2 1/2 minutes
to Nibali: Hes 2:37 back, in 19th place.
Others who went down but kept going
included Americans Andrew Talansky and
Tejay van Garderen, Alejandro Valverde of
Spain, and Germanys Marcel Kittel, winner
of three of the races rst four stages. In what
was perhaps the days most visually dramatic
crash, Belgiums Jurgen van den Broeck went
hurtling over his handlebars in a bend on a
cobblestone patch, and tumbled into a grassy
While the chaos on the course raised ques-
tions about riding in such poor conditions
critics in social media had a eld day it
made for great racing imagery: Many riders
were caked in sloppy, wet mud on their faces
and shins, their biceps jiggling as they held
their handlebars. A mix of sweat, rain, mud
and drool dropped from many chins. Many
looked as if theyd ridden through a shower of
chocolate pudding.
The race heads to Champagne country on
Thursday, with a mostly at 194-kilometer
(120-mile) run from Arras to Reims in Stage 6.

CLEVELAND The Cavaliers have cleared
a path for LeBron James to return to
Theyve made their moves. Theyre just
waiting for him to make his.
The Cavs created enough salary-cap space
to offer the superstar free agent a maximum
contract on Wednesday agreeing to trade guard
Jarrett Jack, swingman Sergey Karasev and
center Tyler Zeller in a three-team deal with
Brooklyn and Boston, a person familiar with
the deals told the Associated Press. The per-
son spoke on condition of anonymity
because teams are not permitted to discuss
trades until the leagues moratorium ends
The maneuvering is designed to open room
under the salary cap so they can re-sign the
Akron-born James, the four-time league MVP
and most sought after player on the market.
With open roster spots, Cleveland isnt
Not long after making the trade with the
Celtics and Nets, the Cavs had exploratory
discussions with the Minnesota
Timberwolves about a possible trade for three-
time All-Star Kevin Love if James does
return to Cleveland, said a person with knowl-
edge of the inquiry.
The Timberwolves would be looking for
No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins to be
part of any potential package from Cleveland
in order to consider parting with Love if the
talks were to become more serious, the person
said, speaking with the AP on condition of
anonymity because neither team publicly
announced the conversation.
Whatever the Cavs next move is with or
without James they could package together
their other assets, including future rst-round
picks, to make a run at other All-Star players.
Meanwhile, James had his meeting in Las
Vegas with Miami president Pat Riley. James,
his agent Rich Paul, Riley and Heat executive
Andy Elisburg were at the meeting, a person
with direct knowledge of the discussions told
The AP. The person spoke on condition of
anonymity because neither side publicly
announced who would be attending the meet-
ing or when it would take place.
James has not made a decision and will not
make any announcements before Thursday,
the person said.
With nothing nalized, LeBronathon 2014
will last at least one more day with the NBA
and fans in Miami and Cleveland on edge.
In the three-team trade the Cavs pulled off
earlier Wednesday, Cleveland will receive
guard Marcus Thornton from the Nets and send
him, Zeller and a future rst-round pick to the
Celtics. Also, the Cavs are trading Jack and
Karasev to the Nets.
Cavs trying to carve out room to bring in LeBron
Sterling says he wont sell team, calls wife a pig
LOS ANGELES A raging Donald Sterling denounced his
wife, her lawyers and the NBA from the witness stand
Wednesday, saying he will never sell the Los Angeles Clippers
and vowing a lifetime of lawsuits against the league.
Make no mistake today, Sterling shouted toward the end of
his second day of testimony in the trial to determine his wifes
right to make a $2 billion deal to sell the Clippers, I will
never, ever sell this team, and until I die I
will be suing the NBAfor this terrible vio-
lation under antitrust.
He was followed to the stand by wife,
Shelly, who tried to approach him in the
front row of the courtroom after she was
done for the day.
Get away from me, you pig! Sterling
The judge then admonished him to make
no further comments.
Sterling began his testimony by saying he loved his wife,
but then denounced her. He said she told him to have psychiatric
and neurological exams only because he had turned 80, and she
was concerned for his health.
She deceived me. I trusted her, Sterling said. I never
thought a wife wouldnt stand for her husband.
Donald Sterlings lawyers are challenging the authority of
Shelly Sterling under the family trust to unilaterally cut a deal
for the team with former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.
Before she made the deal, two doctors examined Donald
Sterling and declared him mentally incapacitated and unable to
act as an administrator of the Sterling Family Trust, which owns
the Clippers.
Sterling said he was certain his wife had never read the trust
documents because it was too complicated for her to understand.
During examination by his own lawyer, Maxwell Blecher,
Sterling was asked about his wifes position in the trust if he
were to be disqualied as a trustee.
She has no rights whatsoever. She has no stock. She has no
standing whatsoever, Sterling said.

The Daily Journal seeks
two sales professionals
for the following positions:
Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
offensi ve juggernaut this season. The
team has frequently had to play through
summer absences for various reasons. In
fact, the reason Burns landed in the start-
ing lineup Wednesday was because
Hernandez as trying to shake things up;
that, and the team was missing four play-
ers who are currently representing the San
Bruno Colt League All-Stars at the sec-
tional playoffs.
Going up against the Barbarians (4-15),
who are in last place in the San Francisco
League, San Bruno scored early and often to
roll to an easy victory. San Bruno scored
one in the second, three in the third, two in
the fourth and two in the fth.
Kyle Patterson and Anthony Orcholski
had two hits and one RBI apiece. Jake
Steenvorde and Josh Hitchens each tabbed
two RBIs. Christian Bautista had one RBI,
in addition to catching a gem of a pitching
performance by Burns.
Despite being in the midst of a splendid
summer season, Burns did not play through
his four years at Serra, as he was cut from the
team in each of his rst three seasons.
It was devastating, Burns said.
[Baseball] was the reason I went there. But
everything happens for a reason. I cant let
that stop me from playing the game I love.
As a senior, Burns did not try out for the
Padres, but instead took a baseball opera-
tions role as the teams statistician.
Currently, the right-hander is gearing up for
a tryout at the collegiate level. He will be
attending Westmont College in the fall and
is hoping to crack the roster with the NAIA
powerhouse Warriors.
And with Wednesdays gem, Burns just
may have found a new recipe for success.
The burly 18-year-olds usual routine has
always been to play long toss the day prior
to a start. In returning Tuesday from a vaca-
tion in Lake Tahoe, however, Burns was a
bit out of his usual routine.
As Burns wasnt informed he would be
taking the ball Wednesday until an hour
before game time when he showed up to
the yard, he threw a rigorous round of
long toss earlier in the day. According to
Burns, the effects were surprisingly posi-
tive, as he felt an extra bolt of adrenaline
as soon as he started his pregame warm-
up in the bullpen.
I dont think I ever have (played long
toss the same day of a start), Burns said. I
think Im going to start doing that.
San Bruno has a daunting week ahead.
With four games remaining on its regu-
lar-season schedule, San Bruno has a
two-game series with first-place Pacifica
before closing the regular season July 15
against the South Peninsula Leagues top
dog, San Carlos.

Cillessen had to face the shootout. Van Gaal
said he would have made the same keeper swap
if hed had a substitution left.
The young Ajax goalkeeper got a hand to
Rodriguezs decisive powerful shot, but could
only deect it into the roof of the net, and then
collapsed onto his knees and sank onto his
back. Krul walked across the pitch to console

Many of Argentinas players stripped off
their shirts in the rain at the Itaquerao Stadium
and danced in front of their fans.
Argentina reached its fth nal, and its rst
in 24 years. It won the title in 1978 beat-
ing the Dutch and in 1986. It lost the cham-
pionship matches in 1930 and 1990. It played
West Germany in both the 86 and 90 nals.

When Robben nally broke free in stop-
page time, Mascheranos perfectly timed slid-
ing tackle blocked his shot at the near post.
De Jong, who recovered from a groin injury
to start, lasted just over an hour before being
replaced by Feyenoord midelder Jordy
Clasie, who made his World Cup debut.
After scoring 10 goals in three group
matches, the Dutch scoring dried up in the
knockout rounds. The team managed two late
strikes against Mexico but failed to nd the
net before eliminating Costa Rica in the quar-
ternal shootout.
The issue in a championship like this one
is that you score one more goal than your
opponent, which we didnt do, Van Gaal said,
We didnt create very much.
Argentina also has found goals hard to come
by in Brazil, not winning any of its matches
by more than a one-goal margin and recording
back-to-back 1-0 wins over Switzerland and
Belgium in the knockout stages.
The two sides attacking impotence was
highlighted by a 73rd-minute free kick by
Messi from the right corner that sailed over
everybody and out of play. Dirk Kuyt followed
suit a minute later by sending a long ball off
the other end of the pitch.

Emmert told a Senate committee Wednesday
he supports scholarships for life and other
reforms in how athletes are treated, then did
such a good job of casting himself as a pow-
erless gurehead that one senator told him:
I cant tell whether youre in charge or
whether youre a minion.
Emmert faced a skeptical Senate
Commerce Committee and said he feels col-
lege sports works extremely well for the
vast majority and the overall current model
of amateurism should be preserved.
But he listed several changes hed like to
see enacted.
In addition to the end of the standard year-
to-year scholarships, he said scholarships
should also cover the full cost of attending
college, not just basics such as room and
He also called for better health, safety and
insurance protocols and said universities
must confront what he called the national
crisis of sexual assault.
Emmert said such changes could come
about if Division I schools decide to remake
their decision-making structure in the com-
ing weeks, giving more authority to the ve
biggest conferences.
He reiterated that the schools themselves
are in charge of the rules and emphasized the
challenge of creating a consensus among
college presidents, coaches and athletic
That led to sharp words from Sen. Claire
McCaskill, who leveled the minion state-
ment and added: If youre merely a mone-
tary pass-through, why should you even
The Missouri Democrat was particularly
concerned with research that showed a sig-
nificant percentage of universities allow
athletic departments to handle sexual assault
investigations of athletes.
Emmert said he was equally surprised and
dismayed by McCaskills numbers and that
he would work to put an end to the apparent
conict of interest.
The hearing comes as the NCAA faces
pressure from multiple fronts to reform how
athletes are treated and compensated.
The organization is awaiting a judges rul-
ing following a three-week trial in Oakland,
California, in which former UCLA basket-
ball star Ed OBannon and others are seek-
ing a share of revenues from the use of their

the attack. That verdict was unanimous,
unlike the other two, in which jurors split
over whether the Dodgers or McCourt were
I was so ecstatic because we know our son
and we know that the picture the defense was
trying to portray was not Bryan at all, Ann
Stow said.
The jury delivered its verdict in a Los
Angeles courtroom after weeks of testimony
about the assault after the opening day game
in 2011 between the rival teams.
Stows lawyers claimed the team and its for-
mer owner failed to provide adequate security
at the stadium. The defense countered that
security was stronger than ever at an opening
day contest and Stow was partially to blame
because he was drunk.
The 45-year-old Stow, who was left with
disabling brain damage following the attack
in a stadium parking lot after an opening day
game between the California rivals. Dodger
fans Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood
pleaded guilty in the attack after a lengthy
preliminary hearing in which witnesses said
security guards were absent from the parking
lot where Stow was attacked.
Girardi led the lawsuit on behalf of Stow,
seeking $37.5 million for his lifetime care
and compensation for lost earnings. He also
urged jurors to award double that gure for
pain and suffering.
Dana Fox, the lawyer for the Dodgers and
McCourt, argued that they bore no responsi-
bility for the attack. In closing arguments, he
showed jurors enlarged photos of Sanchez and
Norwood and said they were responsible
along with Stow himself.
Fox cited testimony that Stows blood-
alcohol level was .18 percent more than
twice the legal limit for driving and a wit-
ness account of Stow yelling in the parking
lot with his arms up in the air.
There were three parties responsible
Sanchez, Norwood and, unfortunately, Stow
himself. There were things Mr. Stow did that
put these things in action, Fox said.
He added, You dont get yourself this drunk
and then say its not your fault.
Girardi contended the team and McCourt had
failed to provide enough security to keep
Stow and other fans safe at the game.

Yankees Tanaka on DL,
will have MRI on right arm
CLEVELAND Yankees rookie
sensation Masahiro Tanaka has
been placed on the 15-day disabled
list due to elbow inammation and
has returned to New York to have an
MRI on his right arm.
Tanaka, who leads the majors with
12 wins, allowed ve runs and 10 hits
both career highs in 6 2-3
innings in a 5-3 loss to the Indians
on Tuesday night. The All-Star is 12-
4 with a 2.51 ERA in 18 starts, but
has lost three of his last four outings.
Tanaka went back to New York for
an MRI, but manager Joe Girardi
said there is no prognosis yet.
Tanaka began the season 11-1
with a 1.99 ERA, but hasnt been as
effective in his last four starts,
going 1-3 with a 4.25 ERA. Hes
allowed eight home runs in his last
ve starts, including two on
Tuesday, a two-run shot in the sixth
to Nick Swisher that put Cleveland
ahead and a solo blast by Michael
Brantley in the seventh.
Tanaka has anchored a shaky
Yankees rotation missing CC
Sabathia and Ivan Nova. Sabathia is
expected to have season-ending
knee surgery and Nova had elbow
surgery in April and wont pitch
again until next season.

Popeye aint the only bloke whos gotta
have spinach. Some gardeners also crave it,
freshly picked.
This isnt spinach season, though.
Spinach is sensitive to cycles of night and
day, and summers short nights induce the
plants to send up ower stalks, set seed and
then die, instead of growing the succulent,
broad leaves they do in spring and fall. Hot
weather also plays a role in inducing ower
Any gardener claiming to be harvesting
spinach right now either lives in the trop-
ics, where nights are never less than 12
hours long, or south of the equator. I guess if
you lived in more northern climes and really
loved spinach, you could cover the plants
for a period each evening or morning, giv-
ing them more darkness during the two
weeks when there are 10 hours or less of it
Spinich kin
Covering plants or moving far south
seems to be more trouble than spinach justi-
es, especially when you could just plant a
spinach substitute instead. These ersatz
spinaches all bear well despite the heat and
long days of summer.
Some are actually close relatives of the
real thing. A familiar one perhaps too
familiar is redroot pigweed (Amaranthus
retroexus). Youre probably already grow-
ing this spinach and yanking it out, for it
is a common garden weed. For best eating,
harvest the leaves while the plants are still
Redroot pigweed is but one of many ama-
ranths; others, such as Jacobs coat, are
grown as ornamentals or for their nutritious
seeds. Amaranths weedy nature is a plus
when you grow them either for food or for
ornament; their unique metabolism lets
them thrive while most other plants are
gasping in summer heat and dryness.
Lambs quarters (Chenopodium alba) is
another spinach or weed, depending on
your perspective and taste buds. You should
be able to nd it in your garden now. Its
sometimes called goosefoot, for the leaves
resemblance to the foot of a goose.
Another spinach relative common in gar-
dens is Swiss chard. Chard is among the few
greens which include kale, collards and
another spinach soon to be mentioned
that thrives in cool as well as warm weather.
Sow chard seeds in early spring and start
picking the outer leaves as soon as they are
large enough to eat. Young ones keep grow-
ing from the center of the plant, which
keeps bearing on into fall, often surviving
even very cold winters. Winter survival
makes for some fresh leaves in spring, but
then the plants send up flower stalks
induced, in this case, by cold weather rather
than short nights.
Not kin, but spinachy
Not even distantly related to spinach but
with spinach in their names are Malabar
spinach (Basella rubra) and New Zealand
spinach (Tetragonia tetragonioides). Sow
Malabar spinach seeds indoors a few weeks
before the last spring frost, and New Zealand
spinach, which thrives in cool as well as hot
weather, outdoors as soon as the soil thaws
in spring. Dont get impatient waiting for
New Zealand spinach seeds to germinate, for
they are slow and erratic in doing so.
In its native tropical haunts, Malabar
spinach is a perennial vine that clambers up
to 30 feet in height; in northern gardens,
grow it as an annual reaching 4 to 6 feet.
Giving it a trellis keeps the leaves off the
ground and free of dirt, and makes a decora-
tive, edible screen. Especially decorative,
with purple stems and dark green leaves, is
the variety Rubra.
In contrast to Malabar spinach, New
Zealand spinach stays earthbound, sending
up just a short upright shoot from whose
base sprawls ground-hugging shoots.
Unrestrained, a single plant might gobble
up a square yard of ground.
Pluck off the eshy, round, young Malabar
spinach leaves or the shoot tips and leaves
of New Zealand spinach whenever the urge
for spinach strikes you. New Zealand
spinach is good raw in salads, as well as
If only Popeye could stay ashore long
enough to plant a garden, he wouldnt have
to settle for that canned spinach.
Tricks for growing spinach in the summer
Short summer nights are not conducive to spinach, which will cause the plants to release
seeds and die instead of developing edible leaves.

Homegrown botanical dyes are in, part of
todays shift toward more natural and organic
And you dont need a degree in chemistry to
create your own hues for scarves, sweaters or
even Easter eggs.
All it takes is a garden plot or a few pots and a
If youre already gardening or already even
have a landscape, you can look out your window
and you can use the things that are there, that
youre already growing, for a dyers garden,
says Chris McLaughlin, a gardener in
Placerville, California, and author of the new
book AGarden to Dye For: How to Use Plants
from the Garden to Create Natural Colors for
Fabrics and Fibers (St. Lynns Press).
Where to start?
If youre planting a new dye garden,
McLaughlins book contains several different
garden plans. An edible dye garden, for exam-
ple, might be best if you have limited space and
cant justify giving up square footage for any-
thing other than fruits and veggies. Suggested
plants include carrots, bee balm, rosemary, pur-
ple basil, red onions, chamomile, beets, blue-
berries, red cabbage and marjoram.
Acutting dye garden features owers that can
be cut for indoor display or tossed in the dye
pot. McLaughlin recommends roses, holly-
hocks, dahlias, rudbeckia, purple coneowers,
zinnias and cosmos.
Of course, you can always mix veggies and
owers, or plant a few items in containers.
And if youre already gardening, chances are
you have some of these plants and owers in
your backyard.
Even a typical suburban landscape that was
planted by the housing developer might have
birch, juniper, roses, Japanese maple or euca-
lyptus, McLaughlin says.
For beginners, French marigolds and onions
(red or yellow) are easy to grow and produce
vivid colors for dyes, according to Julie Jensen,
farmer and founder of Echoview Farm and Fiber
Mill near Asheville, North Carolina.
Which plants for which colors?
Appearance isnt everything. The vibrant
pink owers of the peony, for example, result in
a pale lime green when used for dye, according
to Howard Freilich, founder of the New York-
based landscaping service Blondies Treehouse.
Heres a list of his favorite sources for various
Beets (roots) - deep red
Rose (hips) - red
Lilac (twigs) - yellow/orange
Golden Rod (owers) - yellow
Coneower (owers) - brownish green;
(leaves and stems) - gold
Ivy (twigs) - yellow/brown
Onion (skin) - orange
Carrot (roots) - orange
Foxglove (owers) - apple green
Peppermint (leaves) - dark khaki green
Peony (owers) - pale lime green
Hyacinth (owers) - blue
Purple Iris (owers) - blue
Hibiscus (owers, dark red or purple) - red-pur-
Oregano (dried stalk) - deep brown/black
Iris (roots) - black
Growing tips
Adye garden doesnt require any more work
than a typical garden. But Freilich notes that
dye content in plants is signicantly inuenced
by temperature, humidity and sun exposure.
So you want to make sure that the plant is
growing in its ideal condition, he says.
McLaughlin recommends leaving at least 4
feet of space around the beds to make it easier to
harvest and tend to the plants and owers. That
leaves room for wheelbarrows and other equip-
Harvesting tips
Blossoms should be in full bloom, and
berries and nuts ripe when harvesting plants for
dyes, according to Freilich.
As for roots, the dye content increases as the
plant ages. However, most of the plants that
contain dyes in their roots are perennials, and
will take two to three years to develop enough
dye for harvesting, he says.
If picking an entire plant or leaves, do so at
the end of their growing season so the dye con-
tent is at its peak.
In search of natural hues? A garden to dye for
Beets would be a given to produce a dark red dye, but not is always as it seems. The pink
peony, for example, produces a pale lime green dye.

Alyssa Kimble, a soon-to-be fourth-grad-
er in White Plains, New York, says she uses
the desk in her bedroom for everything
creating lesson plans for her make-believe
school, writing stories and storing stuff.
Everything, that is, except homework.
Usually, my desk is covered with things,
a computer isnt nearby and my mom isnt
there to help me, Alyssa says.
So she prefers doing homework at the
kitchen table.
Although bedroom desks remain com-
mon, many kids dont use them for their
intended purpose. Thanks to laptop comput-
ers and more casual living spaces, they
often opt to do homework in kitchens and
family rooms, on couches or on beds, turn-
ing their desks into depositories for books,
toys and crafts.
What that means for study habits depends
on whos doing the work, educators and par-
ents say.
I could always get my homework done
wherever I was. But some kids, especially if
they have ADHD or another disability, can
benet from doing homework at a specied
location like a desk because it tells them,
This is the spot where I focus, says Ellen
Pape, a La Grange, Illinois, school reading
Separating it from other locations gives
kids more of a straightforward denition of
expectations, she says.
Melissa Kaufman of Santa Clara,
California, says that where her daughters
Rebekah, 14, and Sarah, 11 do their
homework reects their different needs and
study habits.
Kaufman bought Rebekah a desk several
years ago because letting her work at the
kitchen table in their small house became
too hard on the rest of the family. It meant
nobody could do anything in the kitchen or
living room until homework was done
because it would be distracting, she says.
But having a nice big desk surface did
little to change that. I dont think she did
her homework at her desk more than once,
Kaufman says. Initially, Rebekah resisted
being isolated from the rest of the family.
And although today Rebekah does do home-
work in her room, it is usually on her bed.
The desk is where she puts the four outt s
she tried on earlier that day and rejected.
But Kaufman says she doesnt ght it.
She has still managed to get excellent
grades, despite what I would consider less
than stellar study habits and environment,
so we have to let her go with what she is
comfortable with, she says.
Sarah, on the other hand, needs much
more help and encouragement to get her
homework done, so doing it in isolation in
her room is not really an option mean-
ing shes back at the kitchen table, Kaufman
Bedroom desk?

GOP demands for him to visit the U.S.-
Mexican border calls the White House con-
tinued to reject.
Obama met late Wednesday at a Dallas air-
port with Perry and other local leaders to dis-
cuss the immigration crisis. An Obama critic,
Perry has blamed Obamas immigration poli-
cies for spurring the inux of unaccompanied
youth over the border, and his calls for Obama
to visit the border during his Texas trip have
gone unanswered.
But Obama called the meeting productive
and said he didnt disagree philosophically
with any of Perrys suggestions. In addition to
National Guard troops, Obama said Perry had
requested a repositioning of border patrol
agents and policy changes to make it easier to
deport children from Central American coun-
tries found to have no legal basis for entering
the country.
He said he was happy to consider the
National Guard request, arguing that many of
the other ideas hes hearing from Republicans
are actually included in the emergency request
he so direly wants Congress to approve. He
called on Perry to help persuade fellow
Republicans to go along.
The only question at this point is why
wouldnt the Texas delegation, or any of the
other Republicans who are concerned about
this, not want to put this on the fast track?
Obama said.
Yet Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who has
supported Obamas stalled quest to remake the
nations immigration laws, said earlier he
could not support the presidents spending
I cannot vote for a provision which will
then just perpetuate an unacceptable humani-
tarian crisis thats taking place on our south-
ern border, McCain said on the Senate oor,
where he was joined by fellow Arizonan Jeff
Flake and Texas Republicans John Cornyn and
Ted Cruz. They took take turns blaming
Obamas policies for causing the border situa-
tion, contending that his efforts to relax some
deportations have contributed to rumors circu-
lating in Central America that once here,
migrant kids will be allowed to stay.
Amnesty is unfolding before our very
eyes, Cruz said.
In the House, Speaker John Boehner was
noncommittal about bringing the spending
measure to a vote.
If we dont secure the border, nothings
going to change. And if you look at the presi-
dents request, its all more about continuing
to deal with the problem, Boehner told
Meanwhile immigration advocacy groups
attacked the spending request from the left,
saying it was overly focused on enforcement.
Agroup of civil liberties organizations led a
lawsuit in Seattle against the Obama adminis-
tration, arguing that the federal government is

The head of U.S. Customs and Border
Protection, Gil Kerlikowske, told senators in
Washington on Wednesday that the number of
unaccompanied minors picked up since
October now stands at 57,000, up from
52,000 in mid-June, and more than double
what it was at the same time last year. Theyre
coming mostly from El Salvador, Honduras
and Guatemala, often eeing gang violence.
The situation, Kerlikowske said, is difcult
and distressing on a lot of levels.
We have not been what I would say suc-
cessful yet in ensuring that the unaccompa-
nied kids are processed by the Border Patrol as
quickly as required, said Federal Emergency
Management Agency Administrator Craig
Fugate as he testied alongside Kerlikowske
before the Senate Homeland Security and
Governmental Affairs Committee.
The children continue to come across the
border. Its a very uid situation, Fugate said.
Although we have made progress, that
progress is oftentimes disrupted when we see
sudden inuxes of kids coming in faster than
we can discharge them, and we back up.
Juan Osuna, director of the executive ofce
of immigration review at the Department of
Justice, said that we are facing the largest
caseload that the agency has ever seen.
Osuna said that deportation cases involving
families and unaccompanied children would be
moved to the top of court dockets. That means
lower priority cases will take even longer to
wend through a system where theres a back-
log of more than 360,000 pending deporta-
tion cases.
Obamas emergency spending request would
add more judges, increase detention facilities,
help care for the kids and pay for programs in
Central America to try to keep them from com-
McCain and other Republicans dismissed
those measures as inadequate, saying the only
way to stem the tide would be to deport the
kids more rapidly.
They will do nothing ... nothing that
planeloads upon planeloads of children would
do, said Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.
The Obama administration says it wants
more exibility to turn the children around
more quickly, since current law requires
minors from countries other than Mexico or
Canada to go through the court system in what
is often a lengthy process. But immigrant
advocates and some Democrats are balking at
that idea, arguing that it would jeopardize the
childrens legal protections and put them at

said. Sarahs desk has suffered a fate similar
to her sisters; its covered with piles of
books, art supplies and knickknacks.
Tami Mount, a New York-area educational
consultant, says its important for children
to have a quiet, dedicated workspace, but it
doesnt matter where that is.
All the tools they need to do their home-
work, like scissors, rulers, erasers and pen-
cils, should be organized in a place they can
be easily retrieved. You dont want to spend
15 minutes looking for tape, she says.
But some kids work better in an environ-
ment where there is, say, music playing or a
parent nearby, than isolated at a desk,
Mount says.A quiet desk, a busy kitchen,

adults, kids nd a place that is comfortable
and productive, she says. And if the liv-
ing room oor is not proving productive,
try something else.

initial suspicion of activity for an intelli-

We have investigations in two cases of
suspected espionage, a very serious suspi-
cion, government spokesman Steffen
Seibert later told reporters in Berlin. He
declined to provide further details, citing the
ongoing investigations.
The daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported,
without naming sources, that the man being
investigated worked at Germanys Defense
Ministry and is suspected of spying for the
U.S. News website Spiegel Online reported,
also without naming sources, that the man
worked in a department dealing with interna-
tional security policy and had aroused the
suspicion of Germanys military counter-
intelligence agency because of his close
contacts to alleged U.S. spies.
Defense Ministry spokesman Lt. Col. Uwe
Roth declined to conrm the reports, but said
the case fell into the ministrys area of
responsibility and that Defense Minister
Ursula von der Leyen had been informed.
State Department ofcials traveling with
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Beijing
had no immediate comment. The White
House also decided to comment, although
press secretary Josh Earnest reiterated that
the U.S. appreciates its important partner-
ship with German national security of-
cials. He said diplomats from the two coun-
tries were working to resolve circumstances
surrounding the reports.
Last week, a 31-year-old German intelli-
gence employee was arrested on suspicion of
spying for foreign powers since 2012.
German media have reported that he spied for
the United States and came to authorities
attention when he recently offered his serv-
ices to Russian ofcials in Germany by
The case has frayed relations between
Berlin and Washington, which were already
strained by reports last year that the National
Security Agency had targeted Chancellor
Angela Merkels cellphone and conducted
mass surveillance of Internet traffic in
Germany. Those allegations have resulted in
a criminal investigation and the creation of a
parliamentary panel tasked with probing the
NSAs activities in Germany.
The U.S. ambassador to Berlin was sum-
moned to the Foreign Ministry on Friday
after news of the rst case broke.
Ambassador John B. Emerson was at the
ministry again Wednesday for a meeting with
a senior official, Foreign Ministry
spokesman Martin Schaefer said. U.S.
Embassy spokesman Peter Claussen said the
meeting had been arranged on Tuesday at the
embassys request.
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter
Steinmeier said he was at a loss to understand
why the U.S. would spy on his country.
We speak to each other all the time, and
nobody keeps their views secret, he said in
an interview published Wednesday by the
Saarbruecker Zeitung. The attempt to use
conspiratorial methods to nd out about
Germanys position isnt just unseemly, its

killing at least 22 people as Israeli leaders sig-

quickly approaching.
The military said it struck about 200 Hamas
targets on the second day of its offensive, which
it says is needed to end incessant rocket attacks
out of Gaza. Militants, however, continued to
re rocket salvos deep into Israeli territory, and
Israel mobilized thousands of forces along the
Gaza border ahead of a possible ground opera-

comes rst. The operation will expand and con-

quiet returns.
The ghting stepped up as Egypt, which
often serves as a mediator between Israel and the
Palestinians, said it was in contact with both
sides to end the violence. It was the rst indica-
tion since the offensive was launched on
Tuesday that cease-re efforts might be under
The offensive has set off the heaviest ghting
between Israel and the Islamic militant group
Hamas since an eight-day battle in November
2012. As the death toll continued to rise,
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas accused
Israel of committing genocide.
Israeli leaders warned a ground invasion could
be imminent.
Despite the fact it will be hard, complicated
and costly, we will have to take over Gaza tem-
porarily, for a few weeks, to cut off the strength-
ening of this terror army, Yuval Steinitz,
Israels intelligence minister, told Israel Radio.
If you ask my humble opinion, a signicant
operation like this is approaching.
The government has authorized the army to
activate up to 40,000 reservists for a ground
operation. An Israeli government ofcial,
speaking on condition of anonymity because
he was discussing Israeli tactical strategy, said
the reservists would be sent to the West Bank to
allow active duty troops to amass near the Gaza
Despite the tough threats, Israeli security of-
cials are still hesitant about ordering a ground
invasion due to the many risks. Entering Gaza
could lead to heavy civilian casualties on the
Palestinian side while putting Israeli ground
forces in danger.
It remains unclear whether the international
community would support such an operation, or
how Israel would end it. Ofcials have little
desire to retake control of Gaza, a densely popu-
lated territory of 1.8 million people from which
Israel withdrew in 2005.

At the meeting, the City Council
voted to give an additional subsidy of
$32,000 for the pool, which the
Burlingame Aquatic Club, BAC, oper-
ates. Under a 1999 agreement, the dis-
trict allows the city to use the pool to
provide community recreation. This,
councilmembers said, was a result of
poor maintenance. The city also issued
a $136,330 subsidy to the BAC for
2014-15. The crux of the issue with the
pool recently, and $32,000 cost, was
heaters that had gone out on the pool.
The heater replacement occurred in
February 2013, with the district
installing state-of-the-art, energy-ef-
cient Lochinvar heaters, which have a
10-year limited warranty, the release
If the City Council is disappointed
by the ongoing need to annually sub-
sidize the BAC, the City Council needs
to reconsider its arrangement with the
BAC and implement better and
stronger oversight of the BAC,
according to the statement.
Others disagree.
They (the district) lost a lot of rev-
enue because the heater was not work-
ing correctly, said Councilman
Ricardo Ortiz. Its a big messy issue.
Weve been trying to hash this out
for a few years now.
The citys entity, BAC, is the group
thats not keeping up with its mainte-
nance duties, according to the district
press release. The district informed the
city last year that the BAC was not
keeping the pool and deck clean and
the district intended to take back those
tasks, according to the statement.
The city requested that the district
give the BAC additional time to
improve, it states. Over the past
year, the standards of cleanliness have
continued to decline. Daily and weekly
duties, paid for by the district, are not
getting done. As a result, the city was
advised on June 12 that the district will
assume full maintenance responsibili-
ty of the pool and deck area beginning
Aug. 1. This will improve the overall
appearance and safety of the pool and
deck area for community users.
The districts use of the pool is min-
imal, with it using the pool about 10
percent of the time, according to an
independent audit by the district.
McManus notes the school district
doesnt even use the pool in December,
January, June and July, meaning the
majority of the time, the citys BAC
uses the 15-year-old pool.
The money comes to the school dis-
trict to educate our students,
McManus said. We arent in the posi-
tion to subsidize a private swim club.
The bottom line is during the hours of
operation the Burlingame Aquatic
Center has very little downtime on
that pool.
The city and district have been try-
ing to work through all the issues and
challenges of maintaining a pool, said
City Manager Lisa Goldman. Right
now, the city and district divide capital
costs 50/50 and the city pays 70 per-
cent of maintenance costs.
The city, once upon a time, was in
charge of the maintenance, she said.
Were constantly trying to gure out
the right way to maintain the pool. Its
a large pool that needs a lot of TLC and
it should be some split of the costs of
operations and replacing capital.
Meanwhile, Mayor Michael
Brownrigg doesnt see the districts
decision to send out a press release
about the issue as appropriate.
We were commenting on an agen-
dized item, he said. I dont believe
its fruitful to conduct a conversation
this important through press releases
and the media. I look forward to work-
ing with the school district on this and
other important issues.
Parks and Recreation Director
Margaret Glomstad also noted that that
particular pool is a very busy one and
the city is trying to work through the
maintenance challenges.
The district and city have been meet-
ing both formally and informally for a
year and half to try to resolve conicts
regarding pool payments.
Councilmembers like Vice Mayor
Terry Nagel do think the district isnt
doing its job.
Were not given any credit for the
two million plus dollars the city has
contributed to that project, she said.
They (the district) seem to keep nick-
el-and-diming us to pay for more costs
and theyre not keeping up with main-
tenance. I hope we can negotiate an
agreement that works for both sides.
There are others issues associated
with the city using the pool a substan-
tial amount more than the district,
according to the district statement. A
term in the 1999 agreement requires
that the maintenance and operation
expenses for the districts and the
citys use of the pool be allocated
based on the hours of use. An audit
showed that the district has been sub-
sidizing the citys use of the pool by
not passing on the citys electrical
usage. For this reason, the district
notied the citys Parks and Recreation
Department in September 2013 it
would be installing an electrical meter
at the pool so that electrical usage
could be accurately calculated and allo-
cated between the district and city,
according to the district.
The Burlingame High School pool
is a district asset and the district will
continue to act as a careful steward of
this asset, according to the state-
ment. Certain councilmembers may
consider this a trivial matter, but the
district does not. Under the 1999
agreement, the city is required to pay
its fair share for use and maintenance
of the pool, and the district will con-
tinue to ensure it does.

45 days where they cannot sell alco-
hol, in addition the store is on proba-
tion for the next two years and if any
similar violations occur, the depart-
ment has the authority to revoke the
license, Carr said. This is a stiff
The latest violation took place on
May 25, 2013 during a routine compli-
ance check a minor decoy operation.
The sales of alcohol cannot occur for
the 45-day period, however, the store
may stay open to sell other non-alco-
hol items such as groceries, food, soda
and other products, according to Carr.
ABC must write up a report and for-
mally accuse a licensee of violating
alcoholic beverage laws, Carr said. The
licensee can then challenge ABCs
information and hire legal representa-
tion. This case did not go to a hearing,
the owners agreed to a 45-day suspen-
sion and two years probation prior to a
public hearing, he added.
There is due process, Carr said.
Lucky said its worked very closely
with ABC authorities to ensure it com-
plies with the 45-day suspension, said
Public Affairs Director Alicia
Rockwell. Store management is work-
ing closely with the corporate compli-
ance team to step up our internal
checks and provide ongoing training
with front-end employees, she said.
Our company has a very aggressive
training program around
alcohol/tobacco compliance, she
wrote in an email. Store management
took immediate action in conducting
additional one-on-one refresher train-
ing with each team member at this
store location. We take this very seri-
ously and will continue to be vigilant
in our compliance.
Each year ABC cites more than a
thousand locations in California for
selling alcohol to minors. Some busi-
nesses are small, some might be per-
ceived as large. ABC doesnt track the
size of the businesses, Carr said.
