SACRAMENTO — California
water regulators voted Tuesday to
approve fines up to $500 a day for
residents who waste water on
lawns, landscaping and car wash-
ing, as a report showed that con-
sumption throughout the state has
actually risen amid the worst
drought in nearly four decades.
The action by the State Water
Resources Control Board came
after its own survey showed that
conservation measures to date
have failed to
achieve the 20
percent reduc-
tion in water use
sought by Gov.
Jerry Brown.
Survey results
released before
the 4-0 vote
showed water
c o n s u mp t i o n

jumped by 1 percent this past May

Holly Street residents say they
are outraged by the San Carlos
City Council’s plan to greatly
restrict on-street parking and sug-
gestions like allowing larger
driveways or having the city pur-
chase two properties on the thor-
oughfare for temporary parking
doesn’t provide much salve.
At an emotion-packed meeting
Monday, the council voted 3-2,
with councilmen Matt Grocott and
Cameron Johnson dissenting, to
prohibit parking on the city’s
main gateway between 7 a.m. and
6 p.m. on weekdays as a way to
ease congestion by making it two
lanes in both directions.
Along with the vote, city offi-
Holly residents upset

Burlingame school officials
have decided to appeal a judge’s
ruling to stop construction at
Hoover Elementary School and are
currently working to secure and
stabilize the site before an envi-
ronmental impact report is poten-
tially conducted.
Last week, the Burlingame
Elementary School District filed
an appeal in the state appellate
court to San Mateo County
Superior Court Judge Marie
Weiner’s May ruling in favor of
the Alliance for Responsible
Neighborhood Planning. The
alliance sued the district stating it
needs to prepare a full EIR on traf-
fic impacts for the entire property,
which means all construction
must be stopped until this is done.
“We’re going to try to get an
expedited calendar to get it on the
docket as soon as possible,”
Superintendent Maggie MacIsaac
said. “That would be the most
immediate thing to do.”
A group of Hillsborough resi-
dents filed the lawsuit in January
2013. At a July 2013 hearing, the
alliance’s attorney Kevin Haroff
said the district failed to address
traffic impacts in its December
2012 mitigated negative declara-
tion study and review. Amitigated
negative declaration is like an EIR
but less extensive.
The project is long overdue at
this point, MacIsaac said.
“We’re hopeful we will make
some progress with the appeal,”
MacIsaac said. “We’re still willing
to discuss anything they’d (the
alliance) like to discuss. Work
will continue through the fall to

Payday lenders,like this one on Fourth Avenue near downtown San Mateo,offer other services like check cashing
and money transfers. City officials are considering restrictions on such businesses.
By Samantha Weigel
San Mateo is joining cities
across the county in considering
restrictions of payday lenders by
regulating land use and promoting
educational programs to prevent
consumers from furthering the
cycle of debt.
There are currently four payday
lenders in San Mateo and the city
is considering creating an ordi-
nance preventing any more from
opening up, restricting where they
can be located and developing out-
reach efforts to educate individuals
through financial literacy pro-
But industry representatives say
payday lenders are already over-
seen at the state and federal level
and there are few alternatives for
those who need immediate cash. It
isn’t economically viable for a
lender to serve those who can’t
pay off their loans and high inter-
est rates correlate to high default
rates, Paul Soter, outside general
counsel for California Financial
Service Providers Association,
wrote in an email.
“Payday lending provides short-
term small-dollar credit to con-
sumers who need that service and
are unable to qualify for compet-
ing forms of credit such as credit
cards,” Soter wrote in an email.
“Payday loans should never be a
consumer’s sole long-term finan-
cial strategy, but they may be a
realistic mechanism to meet
immediate short-term need.”
Borrowing, however, is most
often cyclical and the majority of
those who use the service end up
taking out 10 loans, said Keith
Ogden, anti-predatory lending
staff attorney at Community Legal
City may regulate payday lenders

San Francisco transit workers have rati-

in a sickout that stalled the city’s world-
famous cable cars and disrupted bus and
light-rail service.

Local 250-Avoted 634 to 485 on Monday in
favor of the three-year deal with the San

Agency, union officials said Tuesday. The
contract will give workers raises totaling
14.25 percent and require them to pay into
their pension plans.
The vote also comes after drivers called in
sick for three days last month after over-
whelmingly rejecting a contract they said
amounted to a pay cut.
The union’s president, Eric Williams, said
Tuesday in a statement that the members
spoke up and stuck together to get a deal in
place. The agency serves about 700,000
passengers each day.
“We worked hard at the bargaining table,
and our members maintained extraordinary
solidarity throughout the negotiating

SACRAMENTO — Silicon Valley venture
capitalist Tim Draper began submitting sig-
natures Tuesday for a ballot initiative that
would ask voters to split California into six
separate states, a move he said would create
governments that are more manageable and
responsive to residents’ needs.
Draper and a bipartisan team of political
consultants delivered what he said were
44,000 signatures to the Sacramento
County registrar of voters. The signatures
are among 1.3 million the Six Californias
campaign plans to submit statewide this
If enough signatures are verified, voters in
November 2016 would be
asked to divide the
nation’s most populous
state into six states called
Jefferson, North
California, Silicon
Valley, Central
California, West
California and South
California. The regions
would vary greatly in
size, demographics and incomes.
Draper said the state of 38.3 million peo-
ple has become ungovernable and that there
are too many diverse interests for politi-
cians to effectively represent their con-
“We’ve got all of these constituents, 38
million of us, all trying to talk to the same
state,” Draper said during a news conference
outside the registrar’s office. “They’re hear-
ing noise coming from all different sides.
There is not a concentrated effort to get jobs
into the Central Valley because there are so
many other issues around all of these differ-
ent people.”
Critics note that the plan would separate
the wealthiest and poorest Californians,
potentially creating some of the poorest
states in the nation. But Draper, who wore a
tie with the initiative’s proposed new map
of the states, brushed away such concerns,
saying the individual states could pursue
new revenue and jobs when they are freed
from other burdens.
“Those places are poor under the current
regime. They don’t have to be poor. These
can be wealthy states,” he said.
It’s too bad that California’s initiative
process subjects voters to the whims of an
eccentric billionaire, said Steve Maviglio, a
Democratic political consultant and
spokesman for OneCalifornia, a group
formed to oppose Draper’s initiative.
“If you have $30 million, you can put any-
thing you want on the ballot in California,”
he said. “It’s just a tragedy of the initiative
system that the voters have to go through
this kind of debate and our state will have to
go through this kind of debate for now two
years, not just a regular campaign season,
just to gratify his ego.”
California has the world’s eighth-largest
economy, right behind Brazil, according to
the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau
of Economic Analysis, and it outpaced the
U.S. in growth last year.

With Democrats and the White House
under growing pressure from immigration
advocates to hold firm against the GOP
approach, a solution for the growing crisis
of tens of thousands of unaccompanied chil-
dren showing up at the U.S.-Mexico border
is looking increasingly elusive with three
weeks left before Congress leaves
Washington for an annual August recess.
“It’s a critical situation and if we don’t
deal with it urgently but well, done right,
we’re facing a crisis of just huge propor-
tions,” said Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla.,
who traveled to Honduras and Guatemala
over the weekend with members of the
House GOP working group including its
leader, Rep. Kay Granger of Texas. “Time is
of the essence.”
Granger, Diaz-Balart and others said their
proposals would include sending the
National Guard to help overwhelmed Border
Patrol agents, increasing immigration
judges, adding assistance to Central
American nations and changing a 2008 traf-
ficking victims law that guarantees hearings
for Central American youths. The law has
the practical result of letting the young peo-
ple stay in the country for years as their
cases move through the badly backlogged
immigration courts.
At the same time Republicans are working
to significantly pare down President Barack
Obama’s $3.7 billion emergency spending
request for the border, hoping to act quickly
on a smaller spending bill along with the
package of policy changes. The recommen-
dations were to be formally released later in
the week, but lawmakers discussed their
broad outlines Tuesday.
In response, Democrats and immigration
advocates called for quick action on a
“clean” spending bill without controversial
policy changes attached. The White House
urged speed, but did not insist that Congress
act only on the spending bill.
“There’s already been ample opportunity
for Congress to take action, and we want to
encourage them to move forward with some
sense of urgency,” said White House Press
Secretary Josh Earnest.

Peninsula politicians believe a recent
visit to China has helped establish connec-
tions with the Chinese government and
business leaders, while at the same time
promoting Silicon Valley cities.
Burlingame Mayor Michael Brownrigg
attended seven days of the 11-day trip
because of work obligations. Still, he was
chosen as the head of the delegation of 11
mayors and vice mayors on the June 16-27
trip led by the nonprofit China Silicon
Valley. The delegation traveled from
Beijing to Shanghai to Wuhan and
Shenzhen, talking to leaders that repre-
sented 180 million people.
“It was a little humbling, but we were suc-
cessful in what we set out to do,”
Brownrigg said. “Deepen our understanding
of China, get to know each other. Trust
doesn’t come overnight in China.”
Given China’s huge balance sheet, it has
been told to invest overseas.
“We came away with a number of connec-
tions,” he said. “Some very senior busi-
ness officials will look up our cities when
they come to California.”
The mayors had some excellent opportu-
nities to meet really key business and gov-
ernment officials from the chamber of com-
merce and a director of overseas affairs on
the trip, said Millbrae Vice Mayor Robert
Gottschalk, who also attended.
“We stressed Millbrae being a key loca-
tion for Chinese businesses wanting to
establish here,” he said. “There’s BART,
the airport and we’re between San
Francisco and San Jose.”
One of the unexpected fringe benefits of
the trip was getting to know other
Peninsula politicians well, Brownrigg
said. They were able to compare notes
about their cities. Gottschalk enjoyed this
aspect of the trip as well.
“We became really good friends and
shared a lot of thoughts and ideas,” said
Gottschalk, who will be doing a presenta-
tion to the City Council on the trip next
week. “We hope to have this (trip) become
an annual event. We’re already planning a
get together for the mayor group in late
July or August.”
Each city came with its own hook. One of
Millbrae’s was that 42.8 percent of the
population is of Asian descent, according
to 2010 Census Bureau data. Burlingame
stressed its special historic ties to China.
Anson Burlingame, who Burlingame is
named after, became the first American
ambassador to China in 1861. Ambassador
Burlingame was so respected in China that
when his tour was over, the Chinese gov-
ernment asked him to be their ambassador
back to the United States. Brownrigg
hopes that one day the city can build a stat-
ue of Anson Burlingame in a future town
“When I look over the next 40 years — I
think the U.S. and China will be the most
important countries,” Brownrigg said. “I’m
hoping we can work together. We’re all try-
ing to create a better environment, so our
children can have better lives than we did.
Our regions (China and Silicon Valley)
have both accomplished a great deal in a
short amount of time. We both respect
entrepreneurship and that can be an enor-
mous engine for good.”
The leaders were accompanied by repre-
sentatives from the Chinese Consulate of
San Francisco and members of China-
Silicon Valley, including co-presidents
Victor Wang, Stephanie Xu and other board
members. The delegation was also made up
of Cupertino Mayor Gilbert Wong, Menlo
Park Mayor Ray Mueller, Mountain View
Mayor Chris Clark, Morgan Hill Vice
Mayor Marilyn Librers and others.
China trip dubbed a success
Leaders hope the trip will bring more Chinese business to the Peninsula

WASHINGTON — With an August deadline
looming, the House voted Tuesday to tem-
porarily patch over a multibillion-dollar
pothole in federal highway and transit pro-
grams while ducking the issue of how to put
them on a sound financial footing for the
long term.
The action cobbles together $10.8 billion
by using pension tax changes, customs fees
and money from a fund to repair leaking
underground fuel storage tanks to keep the
federal Highway Trust Fund, which pays for
transportation programs nationwide, sol-
vent through May 2015. The vote was 367
to 55. A similar bill is pending in the
Without congressional action, the
Transportation Department
says that by the first week in
August the fund will no
longer have enough money to
cover promised aid to states,
and the government will
begin to stretch out payments. Congress has
kept the highway trust fund teetering on the
edge of bankruptcy since 2008 through a
series of temporary fixes because lawmakers
have been unable to find a politically accept-
able long-term funding plan.
The most obvious solution would be to
raise the federal 18. 4 cents a gallon gasoline
and 24.4 cents a gallon diesel tax, which
haven’t been increased in over 20 years. But
lawmakers are reluctant to raise taxes in an
election year — especially Republicans for
whom a vote in favor of any tax increase
could trigger a backlash from their party’s
As a result, Congress has had to look else-
where for transportation money while not
increasing the federal deficit. The bill by
Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave
Camp, R-Mich., relies on tax changes that
are forecast to generate revenue over 10
years, but provide only enough money to
keep the highway and transit programs
going for another 10 months.
The largest chunk of the money, $6.4 bil-
lion, results from allowing employers to
defer payments to their employee pension
plans. Funding pension plans normally
results in a tax savings for companies, and
deferring those payments means they will
pay more in taxes and increase federal rev-

WASHINGTON — The Department
of Veterans Affairs says it has made
“tremendous progress” in reducing a
disability claims backlog that reached
above 600,000 early last year.
Members of Congress and the depart-
ment’s assistant inspector general
don’t believe it.
Allison Hickey, the VA’s undersecre-
tary for benefits, told Congress that at
the insistence of officials from
President Barack Obama on down, the
benefits backlog has been whittled
down to about 275,000 — a 55 per-
cent decrease from the peak.
Hickey’s claims were met with dis-
belief by some. Rep. Jeff Miller, R-
Fla., chairman of the House Veterans
Affairs Committee, told her flatly that
he thinks the VA’s numbers are inaccu-
“I don’t believe anybody at the table
is telling the truth from the VA,”
Miller said at a contentious hearing
that lasted more than five hours
Monday night. “I believe you are hid-
ing numbers.”
Asked if she trusted numbers pro-
duced by VA, the agency’s assistant
inspector general, Linda Halliday, said
“I don’t want to say I trust them,”
Halliday said.

A Palestinian woman walks past the remains of a house which police said was destroyed in
an Israeli air strike in Gaza City.
By Karin Laub abd Aron Heller
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Israel resumed
its heavy bombardment of Gaza on Tuesday
and warned that Hamas “would pay the price”
after the Islamic militant group rejected an
Egyptian truce plan and instead unleashed
more rocket barrages at the Jewish state.
Late Tuesday, the military urged tens of
thousands of residents of northern and east-
ern Gaza to leave their homes by Wednesday
morning, presumable a prelude to air strikes
Rocket fire killed an Israeli man Tuesday,
the first Israeli fatality in eight days of fight-
ing. In Gaza, 197 people were killed and
close to 1,500 wounded so far, Palestinian
officials said, making it the deadliest Israel-
Hamas confrontation in just over five years.
The Egyptian proposal, initially accepted
by Israel, had been the first attempt to end the
It unraveled in less than a day, a sign that it
will be harder than before to reach a truce.
Hamas does not consider Egypt’s current
rulers — who deposed a Hamas-friendly gov-
ernment in Cairo a year ago — to be fair bro-
Violence is bound to escalate in coming
Hamas believes it has little to lose by con-
tinuing to fight, while a truce on unfavorable
terms could further weaken its grip on the
Gaza Strip, a territory it seized in 2007.
Underscoring that position, Gaza militants
fired more than 120 rockets and mortar rounds
at Israel on Tuesday, during what Egypt had
hoped would be a period of de-escalation.
A particularly heavy barrage came around
dusk, with more than 40 rockets hitting
Israel in just a few minutes, including one
that fell on an empty school. TV footage
showed children cowering behind a wall in
Tel Aviv’s main square as sirens went off. An
Israeli man in his 30s was killed near the
Gaza border when he was delivering food to
soldiers — the first Israeli death.
Hamas’ defiance prompted Israeli warn-
ings. In an evening address aired live on TV,
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said
that after Hamas’ rejection of the truce, Israel
had “no choice” but to respond more forceful-
l y.
“Hamas chose to continue fighting and will
pay the price for that decision,” he said.
“When there is no cease-fire, our answer is
After holding its fire for six hours, the
Israeli air force resumed its heavy bombard-
ment of Gaza, launching 33 strikes from
midafternoon, the military said. In all, Israeli
aircraft struck close to 1,700 times since July
8, while Gaza militants fired more than 1,200
rockets at Israel.
Netanyahu said Israel would have liked to
see a diplomatic solution, but would keep
attacking until rocket fire stops and Hamas’
military capabilities are diminished. The
Israeli leader said he would “widen and
increase” the campaign against Hamas, but it
remains unclear if that will include a ground
Israel has warned it might send troops into
Gaza and has massed thousands of soldiers on
the border. However, entering Gaza would
likely drive up casualties on both sides.
Israel has hesitated in the past to embark on
ground operations for fear of getting entan-
gled in the densely populated territory of 1.7
Late Tuesday, the Israeli military told resi-
dents of the northern town of Beit Lahiya and
the Gaza City neighborhoods of Shijaiyah
and Zeitoun in automated phone calls to leave
their homes by early Wednesday.
Sami Wadiya, a resident of one of the areas
likely to be targeted, said he would not leave
his home. “We know it’s risky, but there are
no secure places to go to,” he said.
In Washington, State Department spokes-
woman Jen Psaki said Israel has the right to
defend itself, but that “no one wants to see a
ground war.”
“Our effort remains focused on seeing if we
can return to a cease-fire,” she said.
The current round has been the deadliest
since a major Israeli military offensive in the
winter of 2008-09. The previous outbreak of
cross-border violence, in 2012, eventually
ended with the help of Egypt, at the time seen
as a trusted broker by Hamas.
Hamas officials Tuesday rejected the current
Egyptian plan as is, noting they weren’t con-
sulted by Cairo. Some portrayed the truce
offer as an ultimatum presented to Hamas by
Israel and Egypt.
The officials said the Egyptian plan offered
no tangible achievements, particularly on
easing the border blockade that has been
enforced by Israel and Egypt to varying
degrees since 2007. Egypt tightened the clo-
sure in the past year by shutting down smug-
gling tunnels that were crucial for Gaza’s
economy, pushing Hamas into a severe finan-
cial crisis.

At least 89 killed in worst Afghanistan bombing since 2001
By Rahim Faiez
KABUL, Afghanistan — A suicide bomber blew up a car
packed with explosives near a busy market and a mosque in
eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday, killing at least 89 people
in the deadliest insurgent attack on civilians since the 2001
U.S.-led invasion.
The blast destroyed numerous mud-brick shops, flipped
cars over and stripped trees of their branches, brutally
underscoring the country’s instability as U.S. troops pre-
pare to leave by the end of the year and politicians in Kabul
struggle for power after a disputed presidential runoff.
Gen. Mohammad Zahir Azimi, the Defense Ministry
spokesman, said the bomber detonated his explosives as he
drove by the crowded market in a remote town in Urgun dis-
trict, in the Paktika province bordering Pakistan. Azimi
gave the death toll and said more than 40 other people were
Nearby hospitals were overwhelmed, and dozens of vic-
tims were transported over dangerous roads to the capital,
Ahmad Shah, a gas station employee who rushed to the
site to help, said he loaded dozens of people who were
injured or killed into vehicles.
“I saw the smoke, and the town was burning. There were
dead bodies everywhere,” he said outside a hospital in
Associated Press video footage of the aftermath showed
mounds of twisted debris and the charred shells of cars
flipped over on top of one another. Azimi said more than 20
shops and dozens of vehicles were destroyed.
Many victims were buried in the rubble, said Mohammad
Reza Kharoti, administrative chief of Urgun district.
“It was a very brutal suicide attack against poor civil-
ians,” he said. “There was no military base nearby. ”
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, and the
Taliban issued a statement denying involvement, saying
they “strongly condemn attacks on local people.” Several
other insurgent groups operate in Afghanistan.

Conflict in Gaza
The assault on the Gaza Strip and
rocket responses were supposedly
triggered by the death of three Israeli
teenagers. Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu claims Hamas was respon-
sible but offered no proof.
Netanyahu’s wild accusations enraged
Israelis who went on a rampage
assaulting Palestinians and demolish-
ing several of their homes. I posed
the question of the teenagers deaths
to several experts at NPR’s Forum
Tuesday morning but did not receive a
definitive explanation.
Amnesty International, Human
Rights Watch and even the U.S. State
Department were unable to assign the
guilt of the teenager’s tragic death.
We often hear the mantra that Israel
has every right to defend itself but
what is missing in this one-sided nar-
rative is the Palestinians right to
defend themselves from the Israeli
military and settler terrorism. Israel
boasts that it has launched targeted
strikes on Gaza but when you see the
death tolls, then the numbers actually
speak volumes; 80 percent of those
killed are civilians.
Furthermore, with the wanton
destruction of the infrastructure (hos-
pitals, mosques, etc.) one can only
reasonably conclude the purpose of
the horrific bombing is to inflict as
much misery and terror on a defense-
less population. The Obama adminis-
tration, which enabled the horrific
massacres to take place, is complicit
in the human tragedy that is unfold-
ing. Israel has never been account-
able for its actions — meanwhile our
tax dollars keep flowing into the
Israeli war machine.

Israel at it once again
Israel appears to be doing what it
likes to do best: shooting fish in a
barrel. After deciding that the Hamas
organization might be behind the
kidnap deaths of the three teens and
after making the suspected perpetra-
tor’s families homeless by blowing
up their houses (the family homes of
the Israeli suspects in the follow up
revenge killing appear to still be
standing though), they then embarked
on a nationwide crackdown on any
and all who might be considered
Hamas connected.
This was calculated to try to goad
Hamas into their usual reaction: lob-
bing a few rockets into Israel which
would allow a resumption of what
Israel excels at. That would be the uti-
lization of their overwhelming mili-
tary to supply the Israeli public with
a sufficient number of Palestinian
corpses to satisfy their need for a
good body count.
The main goal is to keep everyone
far away from having to sit down and
discuss what Israel is really after. That
being of course the continued colo-
nization of the West Bank and East

Two differences
between Israel and Palestine
Ever since the State of Israel was
created in 1948, the Middle East has
been in conflict. Two of the many dif-
ferences between the sides resonate
most with me.
First, Israel has its Iron Dome
defense system, in which missiles
intercept incoming rockets. In Gaza,
Hamas uses its residents to shield
against Israeli bombs. Israel uses
rockets to protect its residents, while
Hamas protects its rockets with inno-
cent people as human shields.
Second, and perhaps the most
telling, are the answers to these ques-
tions. If Israel were to lay down all of
its weapons today, what would hap-
pen? The answer is clear: Israel would
be destroyed the very next day. If
Hamas and the other anti-Israeli
groups were to lay down their
weapons today, what would happen?
Again, the answer is clear: There
would be lasting peace and a new
Palestinian state.

Letters to the editor
he decision to not renew the
contract of Robert Gay, the
manager of the San Mateo
County Mosquito and Vector Control
District, was a long time coming but
ultimately a good one. Gay was the
head of the organization when it fell
victim to high-level embezzlement
by two of its workers and while he
was not the one who engaged in the
criminal activity, he was the one who
hired the ringleader of it without a
simple background check.
The crimes were ongoing and egre-
gious and included hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars stolen from public
coffers. Under Gay’s watch between
2009 and 2011, former finance direc-
tor Joanne Seeney worked for the dis-
trict under the name Jo Ann Dearman.
Prosecutors who eventually filed
charges say she and accounting assis-
tant Vika Sinipata embezzled at least
$650,000 by giving themselves extra
pay at a higher rate and fraudulent
time off, excessively contributed to
their deferred compensation funds,
used credit cards for personal purchas-
es and electronically transferred
money into their own accounts.
At the time of the embezzlement
and the subsequent exploration of dis-
solution by the San Mateo County
Local Agency Formation
Commission, Gay defended his work
and how he operated the district. But
his defense was lackluster and, quite
frankly, he seemed in over his head.
It was almost two years ago that the
Daily Journal on this page called for
new leadership for the district — and
that meant Gay should have been
removed then. The rationale at that
time was the same as now. Just
because the district’s leadership said it
was changing its ways didn’t mean it
would not fall victim once again to
lackadaisical management once the
spotlight was off. And any corpora-
tion whose top executive failed to do
a background check on someone in
charge of its finances would be fired
immediately once that person was
arrested and convicted of embezzle-
ment. Why should it be any different
for a public agency? It shouldn’t.
The district expanded in 2003 dur-
ing the West Nile threat and given a
21-member board with a representa-
tive from each Peninsula city to allow
a funding source through an assess-
ment. The county once handled rodent
responsibilities but transferred them
to the district in 2008 and shifted all
vector control three years later. In
prior years, board members were
mostly interested community mem-
bers and while the embezzlement was
uncovered by San Carlos’ representa-
tive, new board members likely
reflected cities wanting those who
have higher expectations.
Those expectations now include a
manager with more of a handle on
how to operate such a largely unseen
but critical organization for our coun-
ty’s public health. That critical work
is funded with our tax dollars. And its
finances and leadership must also be
solid for the public trust to continue
in its existence.
Removing Gay from the equation
was a step in the right direction.
A positive change for mosquito district Political personalities
ur report found that in the two years after the
terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, President
George W. Bush and seven of his administra-
tion’s top officials made at least 935 false statements
about the national security threat posed by Iraq.” —
Charles Lewis, “935 Lies.”
Recently I investigated my book closet to see if I could
make more room for my growing library. It was the day
after Dick Cheney had honored us with his presence on the
Charlie Rose show. Lo and behold, there on the shelf,
right in front of my eyes, was John W. Dean’s book, writ-
ten in 2007, titled, “Conservatives Without Conscience.”
Then I recalled Bill Clinton who had appeared on “Meet
the Press” on June 29. I was reminded of the discerning
expression on his face when he said: “Dick Cheney
attacks the Obama administration for not cleaning up the
mess he made.” Whatever his past personal failings,
Clinton never fails to be impressive with his outgoing
personality. He seems to enjoy life, is open and expres-
sive and comes through as straightforward and sincere.
Contrast that with Dick
Cheney who sat talking to
Charlie Rose with that lop-
sided sneer on his face that
indicated that we can
“shove it” as far as he’s
concerned. He appears
frozen, rigid, closed, men-
tally sclerotic, ultra cynical
and completely unable to
personally relate to others.
He’s the epitome of those
who have status and power
in government and get car-
ried away with themselves,
lying and cheating and
leaving a path of destruction wherever they go.
When I read the article, “The essence of jerkitude” in the
July 4 “The Week,” Cheney immediately came to mind.
“The jerk himself is both intellectually and emotionally
defective and what he defectively fails to appreciate is
both the intellectual and emotional perspectives of the
people around him. He can’t appreciate how he might be
wrong and others right about some matter of fact and what
other people want or value doesn’t register as of interest
to him except derivatively upon his own interests.”
Then there’s George W. Bush, who seems to live in a
world of his own. He appears seriously lacking in mind-
fulness, empathy and personal connection with others
and, as one of my friends commented: “There’s no “there”
there.” He seems to have little personality except what he
puts on to come across as a “good ol’ boy” Texan. He’s
obviously lacking in substance and it’s sad that so many
voters couldn’t see through that. But the authors quoted
here obviously had.
In writing of George W., Mr. Dean offered: “It is abun-
dantly clear that he is a mental lightweight with a strong
right-wing authoritarianism personality, with some social
dominance tendencies as well. Bush’s leading authorities
are ‘his gut,’ his God and his vice-president. Cheney, it
appears, knows how to manipulate the president like a
puppet, and handles his oversized ego by making him
believe ideas and decisions are his own, when, in fact,
they are Cheney’s. … Cheney is the mind of this presi-
dency, with Bush its salesman. Bush simply does not have
the mental facility or inclination for serious critical
analysis of the policies he is being pushed to adopt.”
Referring to the recent op-ed piece in The Wall Street
Journal by Cheney and his daughter Liz, E.J. Dionne Jr.
commented: “It’s not every day that a leader of the previ-
ous administration suggests that the current president is a
‘fool’ and accuses him of intentionally weakening the
United States.” And: “The Cheney polemic would be outra-
geous even if our former vice-president’s record in Iraq had
been one of absolute clairvoyance. As it happens, he was
wrong in almost every prediction he made about the war. ”
Trudy Rubin, in one of her recent columns, summarized it
cleverly: “For Dick Cheney, Iraq means never having to
say you’re sorry. ”
The personal characteristics of politicians are fascinat-
ing. Their narcissism is often blatant and their obsessive
urge to be in control and/or adulated is often very evident.
Those who are willing to deceive and manipulate are a bit
less obvious. But, as we have seen, there are few in high
government office who truly have the welfare of the rest of
us at heart.
As Piero Ferrucci wrote in his wonderful book, “The
Power of Kindness”: “In the political arena, kindness is
the giving up of domination and vendetta, and the recog-
nition of others’ points of view, their needs and their his-
tory. Violence and war, on the other hand, appear more
and more as remarkably gross and inefficient ways for
resolving the world’s problems — a method that generates
rage and thus new violence, chaos, waste of resources, suf-
fering and poverty.” You tell ‘em, Piero!

Big movers

The Federal Reserve’s latest take on
the U.S. economy put many investors
into sell mode Tuesday, sending stocks
mostly lower after a brief upward turn
early in the day.
Fed Chair Janet Yellen, speaking
before Congress, said the U.S. econo-
my has yet to recover fully, but raised
the possibility the central bank could
raise its key short-term interest rate
sooner than currently projected.
The Fed also issued a report noting
that valuations for stocks in some sec-
tors, such as social media and biotech
firms, appear to be stretched, sending
shares in Facebook, Twitter and
LinkedIn lower.
By suggesting some stocks could be
overvalued, the Fed is adding to a
growing belief among some market
watchers that stocks are due for a pull-
back, said Drew Wilson, an equity ana-
lyst at Fenimore Asset Management.
“In this type of environment when
you have a lot of uncertainty, essen-
tially you have this equilibrium that’s
looking to be broken one way or
another, and the Fed chair saying
‘financial bubble’ could do that,”
Wilson said.
Investors had plenty more to consid-
er, including a mostly encouraging
batch of corporate earnings and eco-
nomic data.
The major U.S. financial market
indexes were up slightly in premarket
trading as JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs
and Johnson & Johnson released quar-
terly results that exceeded Wall Street’s
Separate reports on U.S. retail sales
and manufacturing growth also gave
the market an early lift.
But stock indexes diverged shortly
after the market opened and then fully
veered into the red about an hour into
regular trading as investors began to
tune into Yellen delivering the central
bank’s semi-annual economic report
to Congress.
Stocks finished the day mixed, with
the Dow Jones industrial average
eking out a tiny gain on the day.
The Dow added 5.26 points, or 0.03
percent, to 17,060.68. The index is
down slightly from its July 3 record of
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell
3.82 points, or 0.2 percent, to
1,973.28. The index is down 0.6 per-
cent from its most recent all-time high
of 1,985.44 set July 3.
The Nasdaq composite shed 24.03
points, or 0.5 percent, to 4,416.39.
The three stock indexes are all up for
the year.
Bond prices barely budged. The yield
on the 10-year Treasury note held
steady at 2.55 percent.
Several tech stocks surged in after-
market trading Tuesday.
Intel jumped $1.37, or 4.3 percent,
to $33.08 after reporting strong sec-
ond-quarter earnings and an increase to
its stock buyback program. Apple and
IBM rose after the former rivals
announced they are teaming up to work
on mobile applications in a bid to sell
more iPhones and iPads to corporate
customers. Apple rose $1.74, or 1.8
percent, to $97.06 in extended trad-
ing. IBM added $4.06, or 2.2 percent,
to $192.55.
Meanwhile, Facebook fell 73 cents,
or 1.1 percent, to $67.17, while
Twitter slipped 43 cents, also 1.1 per-
cent, to $37.88. LinkedIn fell $1.19,
or 0.7 percent, to $158.51.
Yellen told Congress that the Fed
intends to keep providing significant
support to the U.S. economy to boost
growth and improve labor market con-
ditions, noting that the economic
recovery is not yet complete.
Employers added 288,000 jobs last
month, the fifth straight month of
gains above 200,000. The national
unemployment rate has slid to 6.1 per-
cent, a 5 1/2-year low.
Yellen noted that if labor market
conditions continue to improve more
quickly than anticipated, the Fed could
raise its key short-term interest rate
sooner than currently projected.
Stocks mostly down as investors digest earnings
By Martin Crutsinger
WASHINGTON — Despite recent siz-
able job gains, Federal Reserve Chair
Janet Yellen is signaling that her
agency is in no rush to withdraw the
massive support it is providing the
U.S. economy.
Extra caution is warranted, she said
Tuesday, given a number of “false
dawns” in this recovery when a hoped-
for acceleration in growth has failed to
“Although the economy continues to
improve, the recovery is not yet com-
plete,” she told the Senate Banking
Committee, delivering the Fed’s semi-
annual economic report to Congress.
Analysts said that Yellen’s remarks
indicated that the central bank plans to
keep its benchmark short-term interest
rate near a record low of zero, where it
has been since December 2008, for
some time to come.
While many economists believe the
Fed will delay its
first rate hike until
next summer, some
had wondered
whether a recent
string of better-
t h a n - e x p e c t e d
u n e mp l o y me n t
numbers might
cause that date to be
moved up.
Yellen acknowl-
edged the improvement in the labor
market, where the unemployment rate
fell to 6.1 percent in June. But she said
this rate was still above the 5.2 percent
to 5.5 percent that Fed officials view as
optimal. She said there were still far
too many long-term unemployed
Americans and wage growth remained
weak, all indications of “significant
slack” remaining in the job market.
On inflation, Yellen noted that prices
by the Fed’s favored price gauge were
up 1.8 percent in the 12 months ending
in May, and she noted that this was
still below the Fed’s 2 percent target.
“Yellen’s message was that we have
made progress on the economy, but we
still have a ways to go,” said Stuart
Hoffman, chief economist at PNC
Financial. He predicted the first rate
hike will not occur until October 2015.
Yellen’s comments on Tuesday,
which hewed closely to the remarks she
made at a news conference following
the Fed’s June meeting, had little
impact on financial markets although
stocks of some Internet and biotech
companies were jolted by a reference in
the agency’s Monetary Policy Report
that stock valuations of “social media
and biotechnology firms appear to be
While the reference brought back
memories of former Fed Chairman Alan
Greenspan’s famous comment in a
December 2006 speech about possible
“irrational exuberance” in the stock
market, analysts noted that Yellen in
her testimony played down worries
about asset bubbles.
Chair: Labor market still needs Fed support
Yahoo 2Q earnings, revenue fall amid ad slump
NEWYORK — Yahoo Inc. said Tuesday that its second-
quarter earnings and revenue declined, as the company
struggled again with display advertising sales.
Both fell short of Wall Street’s expectations, as did rev-
enue forecast for the current quarter, causing the limping
Internet icon’s stock to fall in extended trading.
Before the forecast was revealed during a conference call
with analysts, Yahoo’s stock rose as the company
announced that Alibaba Group agreed to reduce the number
of shares Yahoo is required to sell in the Chinese e-com-
merce company in an initial public offering of stock this
year. Yahoo, which holds a 23 percent stake in Alibaba,
now has to sell only 140 million shares in the IPO, down
from 208 million earlier.
Although the reduction means that Yahoo’s immediate
windfall from the Alibaba IPO will be smaller, it’s also a
long-term bet on Alibaba’s success. Analysts say Alibaba’s
IPO could be bigger than Facebook’s $16 billion stock
debut two years ago, which would make Alibaba the biggest
tech IPO ever.
Comcast ‘embarrassed’ by customer service rep
PHILADELPHIA — Cable and Internet giant Comcast is
apologizing after a tech-savvy California customer posted
eight minutes of telephone conversation online in which
he tried repeatedly to get a customer service representative
to disconnect his service.
The customer, Ryan Block, succeeds in getting the
unidentified Comcast rep to agree to disconnect his service,
but only after the rep repeatedly asks Block for a reason. At
one point, Block says, “I can guarantee right now that you
are doing an incredibly good job of helping your company
be worse.”
Google appoints Ford ex-CEO Mulally to board
NEWYORK — Google has appointed Alan Mulally, the
former CEO of Ford Motor Co., to its board.
Mulally, 68, retired from Ford at the end of June. Over the
winter, he was rumored to be in the running for the top job
at Microsoft Corp., but it went to an internal candidate.
Google said Tuesday that Mulally’s appointment was
effective July 9. He will serve on the company’s audit com-
Google has developed car prototypes that drive them-
selves, but hasn’t revealed what it plans to do with the tech-
nology in the long term. In announcing Mulally’s appoint-
ment, it didn’t mention its cars.
Apple, IBM team up in mobile devices, applications
CUPERTINO — Apple is teaming up with former nemesis
IBM in an attempt to sell more iPhones and iPads to corpo-
rate customers and government agencies.
The partnership announced Tuesday calls for the two tech-
nology companies to work together on about 100 different
mobile applications designed for a wide range of industries.
The applications, expected to be released this fall, will
feature some of data-crunching tools that IBM Corp. sells
to companies trying to get a better grasp on their main mar-
kets while scouring for new money-making opportunities.

WASHINGTON — The House voted
Tuesday to make permanent a morato-
rium that prevents state and local gov-
ernments from taxing access to the
Under current law, the moratorium
expires Nov. 1, exposing Internet
users to the same kind of connection
fees that often show up on telephone
“This legislation prevents a surprise
tax hike on Americans’ critical servic-
es this fall,” said Rep. Bob Goodlatte,
R-Va., chairman of the House Judiciary
Committee. “It also maintains unfet-
tered access to one of the most unique
gateways to knowledge and engine of
self-improvement in all of human his-
tory. ”
The bill is backed by NetChoice, a
trade association of online businesses
and consumers.
The moratorium was first enacted in
1998. State and local governments
that already had Internet taxes were
allowed to keep them under the current
But under the bill passed Tuesday,
those jurisdictions would no longer be
able to collect the taxes.
Jurisdictions in seven states tax
access to the Internet: Hawaii, New
Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, South
Dakota, Texas and Wisconsin, accord-
ing to the non-partisan Congressional
Budget Office. Together they would
lose “several hundred million dollars
annually” if they were no longer
allowed to collect the taxes, CBO said.
Several House Democrats spoke
against the bill, but they allowed it to
pass on a voice vote, which means
members did not record whether they
were in favor or against the bill.

SAN DIEGO — Southern California
home prices climbed to their highest
levels in nearly 6 1/2 years in June even
as increases cooled and sales remained
sluggish, a research firm said Tuesday.
The median price of new and existing
houses and condominiums was
$415,000, up 1.2 percent from
$410,000 in May and up 7.8 percent
from $385,000 in June 2013 to match
the highest level since January 2008,
DataQuick said. It marked the 27th
straight month of annual increases but
ended a 22-month streak of double-
digit annual gains in percentage terms.
Three counties logged single-digit
annual price gains: San Diego (8 per-
cent), Los Angeles (5.9 percent) and
Ventura (4.4 percent).
Low interest rates, pent-up demand
and job growth pushed prices higher
but the market has shifted from last
year, when prices were growing above
a 20 percent annual clip. In June 2013,
the median price grew 28.3 percent
from a year earlier.
The supply of homes, while still
tight, has improved from last year and
lack of affordability has kept a lid on
prices, said DataQuick analyst Andrew

Welcome to the international
gymnastics community, Accel
Four local gymnasts returned
home from Deventer, Netherlands
with Accel’s first ever team gold
medal in international competition.
The Burlingame-based club —
founded in 2009 by Matt Hodges —
competed at the FAME SVOD Open
June 28-29, with a quartet of Rachel
Burdick, Aliyah Kamelamela,
Karina Wade and Beth Wyatt win-
ning first place in the Youth
Accel also took gold in three indi-
vidual events. Burdick took first
place in the balance beam; she also
took second place in the all-around,
second in the floor exercise and third
in the uneven bars. In the Senior
Division, Britt Reusche took first
place in both balance beam and floor
exercise; and she also took second
place in balance beam.
“All of us were moderately sur-
prised,” said Burdick, an 11-year-old
expert gymnast who has been with
the club since it opened. “It’s sur-
prising to think we got first place
out of all the people who came.”

Pacifica American players congratulate pitcher Christian Falk following his one-hit,six-strikeout
performance in an 11-0 win over Mission San Jose in the championship game of the Section
3 tournament in Fremont Tuesday.
By Nathan Mollat
FREMONT — The Pacifica American
Majors All-Stars completed their demolition
of the competition in the Little League
Section 3 tournament at Marshall Field in
Fremont Tuesday.
Pacifica won its first two games of the tour-
nament by a combined score of 25-7.
Pacifica capped it with a dominating 11-0
win over Mission San Jose-Fremont 11-0 in
the championship game, one that was called
after four innings because of the 10-run
mercy rule.
“It’s been fun,” said Pacifica center fielder
Elijah Ricks, who sent the assembled crowd
into a tizzy with his second-inning bomb
that was easily 300 feet, if not more.
“I’ve been playing with [these guys] since
9-10 year olds.”
With the win, Pacifica American advances
to the Division 2 tournament, also known as
the Northern California State Tournament.
Pacifica will face Section 7 champ Rosedale
Little League of Bakersfield at 1 p.m. at
Cambrian Park in San Jose Saturday.
Ricks’ shot was one of five home runs hit
by Pacifica. While its offense has been on
fire all summer long, Pacifica manager Steve
Falk was pleased to see all facets of the game
on point. Christian Falk got the start on the
mound and was nearly unhittable, holding
the District 14 champs to just one hit and a
total of two base runners.
“He pitches like that every time,” Ricks said.
The Pacifica defense was also flawless, han-
dling every opportunity in the field cleanly.
“Today, we put it all together,” Steve
Falk said.
As the visiting team, Pacifica led off the
game at the plate and it put the pressure on
Mission San Jose immediately. With one
out, Ricks reached on an infield hit.
Pacifica dominates

MINNEAPOLIS — Derek Jeter soaked in the
adulation from fans and players during one
more night on baseball’s national stage, set
the tone for the American League with a
pregame speech and then delivered two final
All-Star hits.
Mike Trout, perhaps the top candidate to
succeed the 40-year-old Yankees captain as
the face of the game, seemed ready to assume
the role with a tiebreaking triple and later a
go-ahead double that earned him MVPhonors.
On a summer evening filled with reminders
of generational change, the ALkept up nearly
two decades of dominance by beating the
National League 5-3 Tuesday for its 13th win
in 17 years.
Miguel Cabrera homered to help give the
AL champion home-field advantage for the
World Series.
No matter what else happened, it seemed
destined to be another special event for Jeter.
He received a 63-second standing ovation
when he walked to the plate leading off the
bottom of the first, another rousing cheer
when he led off the third and 2 1-2 minutes of
applause after AL manager John Farrell sent
Alexei Ramirez to shortstop to replace him at
the start of the fourth.
As Frank Sinatra’s recording of “New York,
New York” boomed over the Target Field
speakers and his parents watched from the
stands, Jeter repeatedly waved to the crowd,
exchanged handshakes and hugs with just
about every person in the AL dugout and then
came back onto the field for a curtain call.

respect for him and would like to have been

HOYLAKE, England — Tiger Woods was
an hour into his practice round Tuesday at
the British Open when he stood on the fifth
tee with a foreign object in his hand.
In golf vernacular, it’s called a driver.
Woods smashed it into the wind on the
528-yard hole and didn’t need to watch
where it landed to realize it was in the mid-
dle of the fairway. Later in the round, he hit
another driver off the tee. That’s twice as
many than he hit over 72 holes when he
won at Royal Liverpool eight years ago.
“This is a different golf course when what
we played in ‘06,” Woods said. “It was hot,
ball was flying. It was very dusty. Now we’re
making ball marks on the greens, which we
weren’t doing then.”
So much has changed in so many areas.
Royal Liverpool, green and thick this
time around, is still a firm and bouncy test of
links golf. But it’s nothing as it was in
2006, when the fairways were so baked and
brown that Woods hit only one driver in
four rounds. That was on the 16th hole of
the first round, and the ball wound up in the
17th fairway. He still made birdie.
But it’s not just the golf course.
Woods is not the same player, having
gone through three operations since — two
on his left knee, the most recent surgery
March 31 on his back. He used to win
majors at a rate slight better than one per
year. Now he has gone six years without,
dating to his 14th at Torrey Pines in the
2008 U.S. Open.
And the biggest change might be the guys
who are trying to beat him.
Even though Woods is coming off a five-
win season, he no longer is the strongest,
biggest or longest player. Nineteen players
have won majors since his last one.
“I think it gets harder every year just
because the field gets deeper — more guys
with a chance to win. What did we have, 16,
17 straight first-time winners?” Woods said,
referring to one stretch when there were no
repeat champions in 16 straight majors.
“It’s getting harder to win. The margin is so
much smaller. It’s only going to continue to
be the case. Guys are going to get longer.
They’re going to get faster. Guys who are
coming out here are bigger, stronger, faster,
more athletic.”
Woods used to be among the longest. He
is 38 now, and the latest reminder of how
much golf has changed was on Sunday while
playing with Gary Woodland, who gave up
baseball and basketball to concentrate on
golf. The ball makes a different sound com-
ing off Woodland’s club, as it once did for
“I walked around with Gary Woodland on
Sunday and he said, ‘Yeah, I finally found a
driver and a ball I can hit 320 again in the
air”’ Woods said, pausing to let those num-
ber sink in. “Yeah. In the air. So the game
has changed a lot since then.”
There is one change that most agree is for
the better. At least Woods is playing.
The sport’s star attraction is playing a
major championship for the first time this
year. The back surgery to relieve an
impinged nerve caused him to miss the
Masters for the first time, and then the U.S.
Open. He returned three weeks ago at
Congressional and missed the cut, though
Woods was more excited that he played pain
“Tiger Woods has been the face of our
game for nearly 20 years,” Rory McIlroy
said. “So to have him playing, have him
back, is important. It’s a good a good oppor-
tunity for some of the other guys to stand up
and be counted and win tournaments, either
in his absence of if he’s coming back and
isn’t quite back to 100 percent form.”
That’s already been happening. In a most
peculiar season, the PGA Tour already has
produced 10 winners who were not among
the top 100 in the world. And only four
players in 35 tournaments have been in the
top 10.
Woods acknowledged how different 2006
was in other ways. His father had just died
two months earlier, and he had missed the
cut in a major for the first time in the U.S.
Open before going to Hoylake. He sobbed
on the 18th green on the shoulder of his cad-
die, Steve Williams, whom he since fired,
and tearfully embraced his wife, from whom
he is now divorced. There have been game
changes, life changes. Nothing is what it
once seemed.
Woods finds inspiration not so much from
his last victory at Hoylake, but the last
major he won.
He had not played a competitive round in
two months because of injury — shattered
ligaments in his knee and a double stress
fracture in his leg. He won the 2008 U.S.
Open in a playoff and had season-ending
surgery the next week.
“I’ve proven I can do it,” Woods said. “It’s
just a matter of giving myself the best
chances this week to miss the ball in the
correct spots, to be aggressive when I can
and obviously to hole putts. That’s a recipe
you find for every major championship. But
I’ve just got to do it this week.”

Latief, who competes in the Junior Division,

she was 7 after seeing her older sister Astrid
perform as a recreational gymnast. Her sister
eventually moved on to competitive fencing,
following in their mother Ursula’s footsteps.
Reusche, however, took off in the field of
As a member of Peru’s Junior National
Team, Reusche competed at the South
American Games earlier this year; in the
Bolivarian Games in November 2013 where
she won bronze in the team competition; and
in the 2008 Pacific Rim
Championships. The first time she competed
on the international stage was as an 8-year-old
when she travelled to Chile.
Reusche is finishing her high-school educa-
tion at Cañada Middle College — a co-op pro-
gram of Cañada College and the Sequoia
Union High School District which maintains
an enrollment of approximately 60 students,
many of whom are full-time athletes. The pur-
pose of her dedicating a fulltime five-day
schedule to gymnastics is the pursuit of a col-
legiate career in the sport. She said she hopes
to attend San Jose State in the fall of 2015.
Purpose is major motivator for Reusche,
who relocated to the U.S. specifically to
thrive in a more gymnastics-centric environ-
“There’s always a purpose … because I knew
I wanted to be good,” Reusche said. “Now I
feel at home here.”
Within the walls of Accel, Reusche — the
club’s only top-tier Level 10 gymnast — car-
ries herself very much like a star role-model,
which she is to the younger gymnasts with
whom she trains.
Burdick, at 11-years-old, is one of two
Youth Division competitors currently with a
Level 9 rating. She too has international line-
age. A native of China, Burdick relocated to
the U.S. for adoption when she was 2. She is
now a full-fledged U.S. citizen. And it didn’t
take her long to find her calling in the gym-
nastics world.
It should have been clear the moment she
stepped on the playground at McKinley
Elementary School, where Burdick immediate-
ly navigated towards the monkey bars.
“I liked it,” Burdick said. “I would swing on
the bars and my preschool teachers would say,
‘Don’t go that high!’”
However, when she was 6, Burdick initially
followed in the footsteps of her older sister
Grace and was enrolled in ballet classes. It
soon became clear she had more rambunctious
energy than the ballet world would allow
“The gymnasts are probably the kids who
can’t stand still when they stand at the ballet
bar,” Accel coach Kelly Alliger-Keane said.
“So, they try gymnastics.”
It was at an open house during Accel’s grand
opening where Burdick was discovered by
Alliger-Keane. When the club opened on
Hinckley Road in Burlingame in 2009, the
then 15,000-square-foot facility held free pro-
motional events and saw kids turn out en
masse, but Alliger-Keane quickly picked
Burdick out of the crowd.
“I saw her walking across the beam kicking
her legs,” Alliger-Keane said. “And I said, ‘Oh
my God! Who’s that girl?’”
That girl turned in the top balance beam per-
formance at the FAME SVOD Open last
month. She did so by landing a standing back
tuck, followed by two back handsprings, and
landing a front layout dismount.
Burdick is still enrolled in ballet classes as
well as piano classes. Music and dance are
simply part of the whole gymnastics package
though, she said.
“I do it for the gymnastics,” Burdick said.
“And it helps you know what the beat is and
where you’re supposed to go. And it helps you
to get more flexible.”
Since the opening of Accel five years ago,
the club has grown by leaps and bounds.
Originally, Hodges opened the facility with a
partner and it served as a multi-sports com-
plex which also housed basketball and volley-
ball courts. When his partner moved else-
where, Hodges not only converted to a total
gymnastics facility. He expanded the business
from 15,000 square feet to 30,000.
“We were growing and going into an
Olympic year, and there’s always a boon,”
Hodges said. “So, we knew we’d have one
tough year … but after the Olympics, it wasn’t
a problem.”
Among its enrollment of approximately
1,000 — including tumbling classes and day-
care — Accel has 104 serious gymnasts on its
And according to Reusche, it’s a misconcep-
tion that competitive ego is more prevalent in
the sport than friendly camaraderie.
“A lot of the people and competitions are
the sweetest people you will ever meet,” she

MINNEAPOLIS — Athletics owner
Lew Wolff is willing to re-examine
whether it would make sense to build a
new ballpark at the site of Oakland
Wolff has hoped for a new stadium in
San Jose, California, but that is in the
territory of the San Francisco Giants,
who have blocked the A’s from build-
ing there. Baseball Commissioner Bud
Selig appointed a committee in March
2009 to examine the issue, but the
committee has not made any public
Speaking Tuesday before the All-
Star game, Wolff said a new ballpark
on the Coliseum site was “an option
to look at.”
“We don’t have much of an option
right now anywhere except there,” he
said. “We’re going
to revisit that.”
Wolff expects the
County Coliseum
Authority to vote
Wednesday on a 10-
year lease for the
team at the
“If it isn’t, it’s my
last time,” he said.
The Coliseum has hosted the A’s since
1968 but has had sewage and lighting
problems. Alease vote was planned on
June 27 but was postponed after repre-
sentatives from the City of Oakland did
not show up for the meeting.
The NFL’s Raiders are in the final year
of their lease at the Coliseum and are
interested in building a new stadium at
the site.
“We’ve provided for the Raiders. I
don’t think the Raiders are really
behind any of this,” Wolff said. “Their
owner is a nice guy and I think he’s just
trying to do what we’re trying to do,
make sure that the other guy doesn’t
cause the other guy any problems.”
Oakland City Councilman Larry Reid
was quoted by the San Francisco
Chronicle last week as saying that
Montreal and San Antonio could be
possible sites for the A’s to move to if
they don’t get a new lease at the
“I have no idea where that was com-
ing — nobody certainly had talked to
me. So it was beyond absurd,” baseball
Commissioner Bud Selig said Tuesday.
“We’re two-thirds of the way home,
and that’s pretty good. We have only
one hurdle to go, and I feel that we’ll
solve that hurdle,” he said of the new
lease. “We’ve had to go through the tor-
tures of hell to get to where we are.”

Talk of MLB tobacco ban
MINNEAPOLIS — Major League
Baseball players say they may consid-
er whether to discuss a possible ban on
chewing tobacco when they negotiate
their next labor contract in two years.
For now, they hope individuals decide
on their own to stop dipping.
Players’ union
head Tony Clark
said Monday that
several of his mem-
bers have quit cold
turkey following
the death of Hall of
Famer Tony Gwynn
on June 16 from
oral cancer.
While the use of
smokeless tobacco was banned for
players with minor league contacts in
1993, it is permitted for players with
major league deals. The labor agree-
ment covering 2012-16 says players
may not carry tobacco packages and
tins in their back pockets when fans
are permitted in ballparks, and they
may not use tobacco during pregame
and postgame interviews and at team
Sports brief
By Geir Moulson
BERLIN — At a party 24 years in the making, hundreds of
thousands of Germans showed their admiration and adora-
tion for their World Cup winners in a parade to the
Brandenburg Gate on Tuesday.
The players, in matching black T-
shirts bearing the number “1,” lapped up
the love by playing up to the estimated
400,000 people packing the “fan mile”
in front of the landmark.
Fans began arriving overnight to
secure good spots to welcome home
coach Joachim Loew’s team and the tro-
phy. Germany’s fourth World Cup, the
first since 1990, crowned years of work
by Loew to modernize the team, and fol-
lowed near misses at recent tournaments.
“We’re all world champions!” Loew told the crowd.
“Of course, it was a long way to the title, and an incredi-
bly tough one in the end. But we’re incredibly happy to be
here with the fans now. ”
At a stage set up at the Gate, Mario Goetze, the scorer in
the 1-0 win over Argentina in the final on Sunday, was
greeted with deafening cheers by the sea of fans waving
black, red and gold Germany flags.
Midfielder Toni Kroos led the crowd in a chant of “Miro
Klose” — a tribute to veteran striker Miroslav Klose,
whose two goals took his World Cup tally to 16 and made
him the tournament’s all-time leading scorer.
As the players waited to take their accolades, the fans wel-
comed each of them with a chant of “football god” — giv-
ing Bastian Schweinsteiger, Thomas Mueller, Goetze and
Klose the loudest cheers.
“We’re just mega-proud of this achievement, after stand-
ing here in 2006 and 2008 as third and then as second —
and now we’ve finally done it after this long journey, with
this sensational team,” defender Per Mertesacker said.
There were problems with the sound system, meaning
most of the players’ words were lost to the crowd. The sup-
porters didn’t mind, though, and cheered even louder as
defender Jerome Boateng, back in his hometown, shouted:
“I can’t hear you!”
The team plane landed at Tegel Airport in midmorning
after flying low over the “fan mile.”
Captain Philipp Lahm led the team off the aircraft hold-
ing the trophy aloft, to a chorus of “Football’s Coming
Home” from fans on the airport’s viewing terrace.
He was followed by Schweinsteiger, draped in a German
flag and sporting a bandage over a cut under his right eye,
the result of a tackle in the final.
From the airport, the team set off on a two-hour trip to
downtown Berlin in a bus painted with the years of
Germany’s World Cup victories: The previous occasions
were in 1954, 1974 and 1990.
The team changed shirts and climbed aboard an open-top
truck for the last part of the trip to the Brandenburg Gate,
crawling through the crowds at snail’s pace. The festive
crowds followed in the wake of the bus as it passed.
“It’s indescribable,” fan Till Uhlig, from Hannover, said
of the number of supporters.
People traveled to the celebration from all over the coun-
try: “They’ve all taken their holidays to come here. It’s
absolutely crazy,” Uhlig said. “We were behind the stage
where the bus pulled up. Just incredible.
Berlin resident Katrin Fels, who brought her daughter,
said: “We knew it would happen. It was clear from the start
of the year that we had the best team. It’s perfect, perfect for
all generations.”
Munich also was getting in on the act, with Germany’s
large contingent of players from Bundesliga champion
Bayern Munich heading for the Bavarian capital after the
Berlin celebrations. Bayern and the local government
planned a reception at the airport.

Christian Falk followed and singled to left,
but as the Mission left fielder went to field
the ball, it took a huge hop over his head
and rolled to the fence. Ricks motored all
the way around to score from first to put
Pacifica up 1-0 after half an inning.
“Going into the championship game, you
want to get out [to a lead] early,” Steve Falk
In the second, Pacifica broke out the big
sticks as Ricks, Chris Rodriguez, Nate
Azzopardi and Jordan Salgado all went deep.
All told, Pacifica scored nine runs in the sec-
ond inning, sending 11 batters to the plate.
Steve Falk said he watches his team go
yard during practice, but tries to take their
minds off the long ball when game time
“Before the game, I usually preach dou-
bles to try to keep their minds off the
fences,” Steve Falk said.
Ricks’ blast was the type people who saw
will talk about for years. The center-field
fence is 201 feet away from the plate and he
hit the ball into a tree at least 100 feet
beyond the fence.
“I didn’t know where it went,” Ricks said.
With a 10-0 lead, Christian Falk was free
and easy on the mound. He allowed a walk to
the No. 2 batter in the first inning and sur-
rendered his only hit of the game in the sec-
ond, a Blake Werner single to center.
Any would-be Mission rally was quashed,
however, when the next batter hit a routine
ground ball to Cruise Thompson at short-
stop. He stepped on second to erase the lead
runner and threw on to first to complete the
double play. Christian Falk proceeded to
retire the final seven Mission batters in
order, finishing with six strikeouts.
“He’s always been our guy we go to in big
games,” said Steve Falk of his son. “He did
fantastic. He’s becoming more of a pitcher. ”
Thompson rounded out the scoring for
Pacifica with a solo, line-drive homer over
the fence in right field in the third inning.
Pacifica finished the game with 13 hits,
with eight of the nine batters in the starting
lineup getting at least one hit. Christian
Falk was just as good at the plate as he was
on the mound, going 3 for 3 with a run
scored and an RBI. The top three batters in
the Pacifica lineup – Thompson, Ricks and
Christian Falk – went 7 for 9 for the game
with five runs scored and six runs driven in.
For the three-game tournament, the three
were a combined 24 for 31.
Rodriguez drove in a pair of runs with his
second-inning homer, with Azzopardi,
Salgado, Spencer Karalius and Tyler Shaw
also driving in a run apiece.
Even the bench players played a hand in
the offense, with Mateo Jimenez going 1
for 2 as he replaced Ricks.
With the Nor Cal tournament looming,
Steve Falk said it’s getting tougher and
tougher to keep the magnitude from his
“They know what’s after this next tourna-
ment,” Steve Falk said, alluding to the West
Regional tournament in San Bernardino.
“They know the exact steps.”
So they do.
“Our goal is to play the team that beat us
when we were (playing in the) 9-10 tourna-
ment (two years ago),” Ricks said. That
would be Woodcreek of the Sacramento area,
which denied Pacifica American the
Northern California crown two summers
Despite all the success on the field,
Pacifica was playing with heavy hearts. On
the drive to the game, assistant coach Len
Harkness got a call telling him his mother
had passed away. Pacifica first baseman
Andrew Harkness went on to play the game
while his father went to deal with the family
“Anges Harkness was one of those grand-
mas who was always here,” Steve Falk said.
“[The win] is bittersweet.”

standing out there for a little while
longer,” said NL manager Mike
Matheny of the Cardinals. “I think
Derek was the one that was uncom-
fortable with it.”
While not as flashy as Mariano
Rivera’s All-Star farewell at Citi
Field last year, when all the other
players left the great reliever
alone on the field for an eighth-
inning solo bow, Jeter also tried
not to make a fuss.
A14-time All-Star who was MVP
of the 2000 game in Atlanta, he
announced in February this will be
his final season. His hits left him
with a .481 All-Star average (13 for
27), just behind Charlie Gehringer’s
.500 record (10 for 20) for players
with 20 or more at-bats.
While the Yankees are .500 at the
break and in danger of missing the
postseason in consecutive years
for the first time in two decades,
Jeter and the Angels’ Trout gave a
boost to whichever AL team reach-
es the World Series.
The AL improved to 9-3 since
the All-Star game started decid-
ing which league gets Series
home-field advantage; 23 of the
last 28 titles were won by teams
scheduled to host four of a possi-
ble seven games.
Detroit’s Max Scherzer, in line to
be the most-prized free agent pitcher
after the season, pitched a scoreless
fifth for the win, and Glen Perkins
got the save in his home ballpark.
Target Field, a $545 million, lime-
stone-encased jewel that opened in
2010, produced an All-Star cycle just
eight batters in, with hitters show-
ing off flashy neon-bright spikes and
fielders wearing All-Star caps with
special designs for the first time.
With the late sunset — the sky
didn’t darken until the fifth inning,
well after 9 o’clock — there was
bright sunshine when Jeter was
cheered before his first at-bat. He
was introduced by a recording of
late Yankees public address
announcer Bob Sheppard’s deep
monotone: “Now batting for the
American League, from the New
York Yankees, the shortstop, num-
ber two, Derek Jeter. Number two.
St. Louis pitcher Adam Wainwright
left his glove on the mound and
backed up toward second, clapping
along with the crowd of 41,048.
Jeter appreciated the move, saying
“for him to do that meant a lot to me.”
When Jeter finally stepped into the
batter’s box, he took a ball and lined
a 90 mph cutter down the right-field
line for a double.
“I was going to give him a cou-
ple pipe shots just to — he
deserved it,” Wainwright said. “I
thought he was going to hit some-
thing hard to the right side for a
single or an out. I probably should
have pitched him a little bit bet-
ter. ”
After those in-game remarks cre-
ated a stir on the Internet,
Wainwright amended his remarks:
“It was mis-said. I hope people
realize I’m not intentionally giv-
ing up hits out there.”
Trout, the 22-year-old Los Angeles
outfielder who finished second to
Cabrera in ALMVPvoting in each of
the last two seasons, followed Jeter
in the first by tripling off the right-
field wall.
Raised in New Jersey, Trout saw a
lot of Jeter and said all week he felt
honored to play alongside him.
“Growing up and him being my
role model, it’s pretty special,”
Trout said.
The NLstill holds a 43-40-2 advan-
tage in the series.

t was probably 15 years ago that I
discovered the magic that is a nearly
empty jar of jam.
Until then, I’d always hated those sticky
knuckle moments of scraping the slimy
dregs of the jar, hoping
I had enough to add that
sweet balance so needed
by the otherwise leaden
smear of peanut butter
on my bread.
Then an Italian cook
who was supposed to
be teaching me pasta
making got side-
tracked. She wanted a
salad to go with our
orecchiette, and she
wanted to make her
own vinaigrette. That’s when she reached
for a nearly empty jar of strawberry jam
from the refrigerator, dumped in some olive
oil, a splash of balsamic vinegar, some
salt and pepper. Then she put the cover
back on the jar and shook like mad.
Revolutionary? Hardly. But it was deli-
cious. More importantly, it changed my
relationship with jam. It wasn’t just a
sandwich spread. And it totally made sense.
After all, a jar of grape jelly has long been
the not-so-secret ingredient for many a
potluck meatball. And since that day, I’ve
used a dollop of one jam or another in near-
ly every vinaigrette I’ve made.
And that’s just the start. I regularly turn
to jams and jellies for adding oomph to
everything, including sweet-and-sour
chicken (apricot jam), barbecue pork ribs
(seedless raspberry), beef marinades
(orange marmalade), ham glazes (blackber-
ry or cherry), sweet-and-savory dips for
vegetables and crackers (red pepper jelly),
even sandwich spreads (anything goes!).
It’s a cheap and easy way to add tons of fla-
vor. If nothing else, you really must try fig
jam in a grilled cheese (use extra-sharp
Fruit spreads — as the retail category is
collectively known — accounts for some
$959 million in sales a year in the U.S.,
where some 1 billion pounds are produced,
according to the International Jelly and
Preserve Association. And the leading vari-
ety? Strawberry, followed by grape, then
Not that you’re limited to those basics.
The jam and jelly market has exploded with
unusual flavors and combinations in recent
years. Some of them — such as Bathtub
Gin’s cocktail-inspired creations — are
particularly suited for spooning into
sauces for savory meats or over cheeses.
Knowing I’m not alone in loving this
utterly low-brow food trick, I asked the
pros for their favorite outside-the-PB&J
uses for jams and jellies.
“Jams and jellies are valuable shortcuts
for sauces and vinaigrettes because those
preserves — note that word — are always
in the pantry, bright and tart and sweet and
ready to go,” Allen, host of Food
Network’s “Chopped,” said via email.
“They can add a depth, complexity and
acidity to a lot of foods without requiring
washing or peeling (or, for that matter, a
trip to the market).
“Pork, duck and turkey notably benefit
from the addition of fruit,” he said.
Ford, the chef behind Ford’s Filling
Station in Culver City, California, and the
cookbook, “Taming the Feast,” loves jams
for their simplicity. It’s part of what makes
them so versatile. He particularly likes
tomato jam.
“I use it for a seafood cocktail sauce, a
mignonette for oysters, or as a lamb burger
condiment along with goat cheese, roasted
spring onions and apple wood smoked
bacon,” he said via email. “Other jams and
preserves are well suited to game birds,
like apricot. Add a little water to the pre-
serves and spices like cloves, black pepper
and cardamom to make a glaze. It’s a great
finish to the dish.”
Bloomfield, the chef behind the James
Beard Award-winning New York restaurant
The Spotted Pig, favors adding cranberry
jelly to pan sauces for meats. It’s an easy
In a jam? It’s time to think outside the PB&J

way to gussy up a simple sauce.
“It makes it glossy and adds a
touch of sweetness to something
gamey like venison,” she said.
We’ve all seen that easy party food
of a slab of cream cheese topped
with pepper jelly. But baking and
French cooking expert Greenspan
takes the cheese-and-jam pairing
upscale. She tops sheep’s milk
cheese with black cherry jam, and
mixes raspberry jam with balsamic
vinegar and dollops that on sliced
mozzarella. But it isn’t just about
adding sweetness.
“I often use bitter orange mar-
malade as a glaze for roast chicken,”
she said. “I like using citrus with
chicken. It sharpens and brightens
the pan juices, and adding a mar-
malade glaze ups the citrus pop
without really adding sweetness.

The fines will apply only to wasteful
outdoor watering, including watering
landscaping to the point that runoff
flows onto sidewalks, washing a vehi-
cle without a nozzle on the hose, or
hosing down sidewalks and driveways.
“Our goal here is to light a fire under
those who aren’t yet taking the
drought seriously,” water board
Chairwoman Felicia Marcus said in an
interview after the vote.
She called the vote historic, not
only because the steps are unprece-
dented in California but because the
board is trying to spread the burden of
the drought beyond farmers and agen-
cies that are trying to protect wildlife.
She said city and suburban residents
are not fully aware of the seriousness
of the three-year drought — the worst
in California since the mid-1970s.
“We’re all in this together,” Marcus
said. “This is our attempt to say ... this
is the least that urban Californians can
The board estimates the restrictions,
which take effect in early August, could
save enough water statewide to supply
more than 3.5 million people for a
Cities and water districts were given
wide latitude on how the fines will be
implemented. The full $500-a-day fine,
considered an infraction, could be
reserved for repeat violators, for exam-
ple. Others might receive warnings or
smaller fines based on a sliding scale.
The rules include exemptions for
public health and safety, such as allow-
ing cities to power-wash alleyways to
get rid of human waste left by home-
less people, to scrub away graffiti, and
to remove oil and grease from parking
structure floors.
If fines fail to promote conserva-
tion, Marcus said the board would con-
sider other steps such as requiring
water districts to stop leaks in their
pipes, which account for an estimated
10 percent of water use, stricter land-
scape restrictions and encouraging
water agencies to boost rates for con-
sumers who use more than their share
of water.
Even with the leeway granted to
local governments and water districts,
some managers were unhappy with the
board’s action.
Mark Madison, general manager of
the Elk Grove Water District south of
Sacramento, said the steps will unnec-
essarily punish customers who already
have reduced consumption. Residents
in his district have cut water use by
more than 18 percent since last year.

Services in East Palo Alto. Annual interest
rates are often up to 460 percent for a two-
week loan and borrowers on average ulti-
mately pay $800 for a $300 loan, Ogden
“There are studies … in terms of looking
at the economic harm that go with churning
debt. You have high rates of incidents of
default, you have more frequent credit card
delinquencies that can lead to bankruptcy,
there’s no other way out. The term trap is
used because a lot of times it’s advertised
this could be a solution to your problem.
But it creates a bigger problem.”
State and federal bank regulations prevent
cities from setting interest rate maximums,
Ogden said. Instead, local jurisdictions
have turned to land use policies to restrict
hours of operation, lighting requirements,
window coverage and where lenders can be
located. Other cities that regulate payday
lending are Redwood City, Pacifica and East
Palo Alto. The cities of Menlo Park and
Daly City are also working on a regula-
During a February San Mateo City
Council goal setting session, the council
prioritized a review of payday lending and
instructed staff to research and possibly
develop a restrictive ordinance, said City
Attorney Shawn Mason.
In 2012, the county passed an ordinance
which applies to the unincorporated areas
and prohibits payday lenders from being
within a 1,000-foot radius of one another
and within 500 feet of residences, pawn-
shops, liquor stores and any bank or credit
union. The city of San Mateo is considering
something similar, Mason said. City staff
will research legal means by which they can
regulate payday lenders and the council will
be presented with options around
September or October, Mason said.
Councilman David Lim said he would like
to consider placing a moratorium on payday
lenders to prevent any more from opening
in the city. Education will also play a criti-
cal role in ultimately dissuading the prac-
tice, Lim said.
“What you have is, a lot of folks who use
payday lending are immigrants in this coun-
try. … Alot of it is an educational compo-
nent. Just helping our newest neighbors
learn how to save money,” Lim said. “These
folks haven’t been educated or it’s the only
way they know. So we want to do an aggres-
sive educational campaign.”
Saul Gonzalez, financial empowerment
manager at Samaritan House, said payday
lending can be detrimental to individuals
and their families. Gonzalez said Samaritan
House helps teach courses on financial liter-
acy and the dangers of compounding payday
Gonzalez said he’s working with a client
who began with a two-week loan and was
turned on to online payday lenders. Before
she knew it, she racked up $25,000 in debt
in just four months.
Greg Larsen, with California Consumer
Finance Association, wrote in an email that
brick and mortar payday lenders are strictly
regulated; they can only loan up to $300 at
a time, cannot issue another loan to a cus-
tomer to pay off a current loan and there are
restrictions on what they can do to collect.
Consumers can choose the best solution
for their own situation and it’s harmful to
arbitrarily limit choices in any market-
place, Larsen wrote in an email.
“While never appropriate for use as a
long-term credit solution, payday loans can
help consumers bridge a short-term cash
flow shortage … and can be much less cost-
ly than other options such as bounced check
fees or late payment, interest and reinstate-
ment charges on bills such as utilities,”
Larsen wrote.
Gonzalez said empowering clients means
explaining the details and consequences of
payday loans.
“It’s versus walking in and being educated
by the person that’s selling a product. And
that’s all they’re trying to do. So it’s mis-
guided information,” Gonzalez said. “It’s
not being discussed, the consequences of
the APR or the profit aspect of ‘what I’m
going to make and how my attitude is going
to change if you can’t pay it back.’”
Ogden said with the state stalled in creat-
ing regulations limiting payday lenders and
the harmful consequences individuals in
need suffer, having cities begin through
land use regulations and educational pro-
grams is critical.
“If more cities are addressing it, in my
mind it sends a signal that payday lending
is a horrible practice and ultimately we want
to limit and change it,” Ogden said.
“Ultimately that can happen on the state
level, but cities can build that from the
ground floor up.”

When fall rolls around and it’s back
to school and work, wouldn’t you
love to start your day with something
tastier and more substantial than that
all-too-typical bowl of cold cereal?
It’s just so boring day after day. And
that’s apart from the fact that most
cereals will fail to tide you over until
Here, then, is a meal in a muffin, a
delicious and substantial alternative
to the usual breakfast fare.
The base is a mix of white whole-
wheat and all-purpose flours. Don’t
fret over the whole wheat. White
whole-wheat flour — which is avail-
able at most supermarkets — is made
from a variety of wheat that is lighter
in color and flavor than a traditional
whole wheat, but just as healthy.
The flour mix is moistened with
eggs (a terrific source of protein), a
combo of olive oil and just a little
butter, as well as a bit of buttermilk
and some Greek yogurt. The latter is a
wonderful ingredient. Somehow the
version with zero fat delivers all of
the creamy mouth feel and tangy
depth of flavor that anyone could
wish for. And it boasts double the
protein of regular yogurt.
Next come the veggies. I’ve chosen
broccoli and roasted red peppers, but
you’re welcome to replace them with
carrots or chopped green beans. Your
choice, as long as they add up to 1
3/4 cups. And by the way, you don’t
need to pre-cook the vegetables
before adding them to the batter.
I’ve amped up the flavor with mod-
est amounts of Canadian bacon and
full-fat cheddar cheese. The finished
muffins are good to go: tasty and fill-
ing without a ton of sugar and fat.
Breakfast may never be the same. For
that matter, these muffins would be
great for lunch, too.
Start to finish: 1 hour (35 minutes
Makes 12 muffins
2 cups white whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 large eggs
1 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive
oi l
2 tablespoons unsalted butter,
3/4 cup finely chopped roasted red
peppers, plus 1/4 cup of the pepper
liquid from the jar
1 cup small raw broccoli florets or
chopped thawed frozen broccoli flo-
1/2 cup diced Canadian bacon
(about 3 ounces)
3/4 cup coarsely grated sharp ched-
dar cheese (about 3 ounces), divided
Heat the oven to 425 F. Mist a 12-
cup muffin pan with cooking spray,
or line with cupcake liners.
In a large bowl, stir together both
flours, the baking powder, baking
soda, salt and pepper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together
the eggs, yogurt, buttermilk, olive
oil, butter and pepper juice (if the jar
did not have 1/4 cup of juice in it,
supplement with water). Add the egg
mixture to the flour mixture and stir
just until combined. Add the peppers,
broccoli, bacon and 1/2 cup of the
cheese, stirring well.
Scoop the batter (it will be quite
thick) into the muffin cups, filling
them completely. Sprinkle the
remaining cheese over the tops of the
muffins. Bake on the oven’s middle
shelf until the tops are golden, about
25 minutes. Remove the muffins from
the pan and cool on a rack.

cials and staff threw out some ways to
mitigate the takeaway, some of which
were received better than others.
The first was a free permit program
for homeowners needing vehicles
parked during prohibited hours for an
extended period of time, such as for
deliveries. Holly Street resident
Octavio Jara called the idea “ridicu-
lous” to expect a worker to go online
for a free permit, park in front of a
house to unload materials and laborers
and go park somewhere else.
“What if I order a pizza? Does that
guy need a permit too?” Jara asked.
Mayor Mark Olbert also suggested
temporary permits to park in the
Laureola Park lot although that carries
its own challenges such as competi-
tion with park visitors for limited
Another is tweaking the city’s zon-
ing restrictions of setbacks to let
homeowners create larger driveways
on the property. Olbert said after the
meeting he is willing to considering
allocating some city funds to offset
the costs of building the larger park-
ing areas.
City Manager Jeff Maltbie may have
provided the most out-of-the-box idea:
purchasing one home on each side of
the street and converting the land into
a permitted parking lot exclusively for
the use of Holly Street residents, con-
tractors and guests.
Olbert concedes a designated lot
wouldn’t be as convenient as parking
directly in front of one’s home but said
it would be safer. He also said the city
cost of doing so is a worthwhile
“While it would cost money to do so,
personally I find it a reasonable trade-
off: the entire community gets better
traffic flow so why shouldn’t the com-
munity allocate some resource to miti-
gate the problems creating from realiz-
ing that improvement?” Olbert wrote
in an email to the Daily Journal.
City staff will come back by late
summer or early fall with some
Olbert and Grocott said there was no
talk of using eminent domain to take a
home but the plan, if ever implement-
ed, would likely rely on a house com-
ing up for sale.
The idea is worth looking at, said
Councilman Ron Collins, but is not
necessarily the best solution.
“The ultimate long-term answer is to
buy all the houses on Holly Street,”
Collins said, adding that the homes
were built before the highway on and
off ramps. “Houses no longer belong
on that road.”
Traffic counts cited by the city show
an average of 600 or more vehicles
passing through Holly Street in both
directions every hour from 7 a.m. to 6
p.m. throughout the week.
Jara said standing outside his home
Tuesday morning he saw Holly Street
traffic moving through within 90 sec-
onds between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. which
makes him question the city’s data.
But city officials have said after
years of grumbling about Holly Street
congestion now is the time to finally
pull the trigger on changes.
Residents of Holly Street and the sur-
rounding greater east San Carlos
neighborhood balked at the plan, say-
ing the city needs to look at other
roads into the city and try first creating
solutions through restriping the road
and synchronizing traffic lights.
The city is also doing those two
actions and staff is due back in six
months to report on how the trio of
changes is working. Theoretically, an
evaluation could show the extension
isn’t that significant and the restric-
tions possibly scaled back, said
Mayor Mark Olbert.
Ben Fuller, president of the Greater
East San Carlos group, said he isn’t
optimistic of a return.
“Once these things are done they’re
done. They never go backwards,” he
Fuller said the neighborhood knows
the rest of San Carlos will get a
tremendous gain from the change but
that it is a tremendous loss for that
community. Some members are con-
sidering legal options based on
expected property value losses, he
Grocott voted against the ordinance
because he agreed with residents that
they weren’t well notified of the plan
and also thinks the city should start off
with incremental changes before head-
ing straight to a day-long ban. He also
suggested banning trucks and buses on
Holly Street because their longer
length disrupts the rhythm of traffic
“I just felt like it doesn’t do any
harm to us as a city to do the other two
parts of the project and have more dis-
cussion of the parking,” Grocott said.
“After Transit Village or Wheeler Plaza
or PAMF, if we find we need to do that
other thing which is more painful for
people, we do it then.”
Collins said you can’t do one with-
out the other because, for instance,
two lanes of traffic with restriping
could have motorists running into
parked cars.
“You either do nothing or you do
everything,” Collins said. “We chose

temporarily and safely shut down the
Hoover Elementary School construc-
tion, until the legal process runs its
course or until we have reached a com-
promise with plaintiffs such that the
suit is withdrawn and construction may
With a full EIR, the school would
likely open in 2018, board Vice
President Mark Intrieri said.
Growing enrollment in the district
resulted in the purchase of the previ-
ously-closed Hoover Elementary
School in 2010. The district is pro-
jected to grow to 3,500 students by
2018 from its current size of 3,234 stu-
dents, MacIsaac said. Since the pur-
chase, the district worked to renovate
the building to meet current standards.
The plan for the school called for two
8-foot-wide curbside bays to be created
for pickup and dropoff along the west
side of Summit Drive adjacent to the
school providing enough curb space
for 15 cars. The existing school site
curb would be shifted west to provide
for the bays and two 10-foot-wide
vehicle travel lanes, which will
increase the width of Summit Drive to
17 feet in some areas.
Meanwhile, neighbors opposed to
the project being completed without
an EIR don’t think the district will win
the appeal, including Christine
Fitzgerald, one of the petitioners in
the case and member of the alliance.
“The state appellate court will con-
firm that judge’s decision,” she said.
“It’s a 45-page decision and she cov-
ered every single issue raised. An EIR
was what we asked for from the very
start. The letter that I and town and
Hillsborough wrote specifically asked
for an EIR because it would have
addressed these exact issues. … We just
really want them to look at this traffic
issue because they need to do some-
thing better than what they’ve done.”
Hoover was founded in 1931, closed
in 1979 and repurchased by the district
for $4.8 million in 2010. Measure D, a
$56 million bond measure passed by
voters in November 2012, was used to
cover most of the costs. The overall
budget for Hoover was $23 million and
the district has not gone over that
budget, MacIsaac said.
The district hopes to have another
town hall meeting with city and dis-
trict officials, along with neighbors
and other stakeholders.

intentions and motives. It may be time to move on
from a situation if you feel you are involved in it for
the wrong reasons.
