expected to significantly reduce

As of Jan. 1, SB1310 will reduce
the maximum penalty for misde-

to VA problems
Vets describe issues with
care at town hall meeting
By Joseph Jaafari
In an effort to target specific issues
within the U.S. Department for Veterans
Affairs for San Francisco and the
Peninsula, U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier went
to the San Francisco VA Medical Center
to confront a crowded hall of angry veter-
ans who felt not enough resources were
being put into their care.
“If we’re willing to pay the price tag for
going to war, then we should be willing to
pay the price tag for providing services to
our veterans,” said Speier, D-San Mateo.
Almost 20 veterans took their turn at
the microphone to voice their concerns

Over one-third of grand
jury ideas implemented
By Michelle Durand
Alittle over one-third of last year’s civil grand jury rec-
ommendations were actually implemented but the subjects
of those reports said they also planned to act on an equal
number of suggestions.
In a breakdown of the previous year’s reports, the current
civil grand jury found that 71 percent of the 106 total rec-
ommendations were either made or in the works, 27 percent
were denied and 2 percent were slated for further study.

Amelia’s Antics, located at 311
Broadway in Millbrae, first opened five
years ago, but recently saw a downturn
in business when Kohl’s at Millbrae
Square Shopping Center closed in
April. She closed the store that resells
garments, accessories, shoes, hand-
bags and scarves on June 30, but host-
ed a grand reopening on July 19 after
community members asked her not to
shut her doors.
“The community really came
through for me,” Steffey said. “They
said, ‘you’re the last women’s retail
job and you have great customer serv-
ice, what can we do?’ Everybody was
really brilliant and that was when I
decided to stick around. I went to my
banks and said, ‘the community wants
me here.’ I’m working on a few differ-
ent options there.”
In 2012, the store hit its stride dur-
ing its third year in business, then
Safeway closed for a year for remodel-
ing and business dropped since she
said the city didn’t let everyone know
well in advance for remarketing.
“The city lost tax revenues and my
business dropped by 32 percent,” said
Steffey, who has worked in retail on a
corporate level for 27 years. “I had just
hit my break-even and I found myself
in that position as a sacrificial lamb of

stripes are the new orange
SAGINAW, Mich. — A Michigan
sheriff says he’s trading his inmates’
orange jumpsuits for black-and-white
stripes, in part due to pop culture.
Saginaw County Sheriff William
Federspiel tells The Saginaw News
that all-orange jumpsuits are increas-
ingly viewed as fashionable, especial-
ly because they’re seen on popular TV
shows such as the Netflix smash hit
“Orange Is the New Black.”
Federspiel says “some people think
it’s cool to look like an inmate of the
Saginaw County Jail ... wearing all
orange jumpsuits out at the mall or in
public.” He says inmates sometimes
work in public, and he doesn’t want
there to be any confusion.
The jailhouse fashions come rela-
tively cheap. The sheriff says the
jumpsuits, which last for about two to
three years, cost $11.73 apiece.
200 pairs of panties
stolen at Georgia mall
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Authorities are
investigating after a thief at an east
Georgia shopping mall made off with a
bagful of women’s unmentionables.
Richmond County sheriff’s officials
say a thief stole 200 pairs of panties
from Victoria’s Secret in Augusta Mall
shortly before noon Saturday.
The Augusta Chronicle reports that
security video shows a male entering
the store and stuffing the underwear
into a large shopping bag.
Authorities say he left without paying
for the merchandise, valued at
$1, 900.
Police probe other
attacks after transients killed
teenagers accused of fatally beating
two homeless men beyond recogni-
tion with cinderblocks, bricks and a
metal fence pole may have been terror-
izing transients around Albuquerque
for months, police said Monday.
Alex Rios, 18, and two boys, ages
16 and 15, are scheduled for arraign-
ment Monday on murder charges in the
Saturday night slayings. The 15-year-
old told police the attack lasted more
than an hour, and that the trio took
turns picking up cinderblocks over
their heads and smashing them into
the faces of the men who had been
sleeping in a field across from his
home, according to a criminal com-
A third transient who escaped led
police to the boys, whom he said were
known for attacking homeless people.
The 15-year-old told police the trio
had attacked more than 50 people over
the last year. And his father told an
Albuquerque television station there
were rumors his son was violent, but
he assumed it was with other kids.
Gilbert Prieto told KOB-TVthat he
has no idea what prompted the beat-
ings, and that he and his family had
once been homeless themselves.
“It’s so hard that he could do that to
someone where... I mean, like I said,
we came from there,” said Prieto, the
father of the 15- and 16-year-olds
accused. “You know what I mean?
We’re not there now, but that’s where
we... We got out of there,” Prieto said.
According to the criminal com-
plaint, the teens came home from a
party and one of them was “very
angry” over a breakup with a longtime
girlfriend. So they covered their faces
with black T-shirts and went out to
look for someone to beat up and pos-
sibly rob.
The attack was so brutal it stunned
even veteran police officers
“I personally, after reading that
complaint, was sick to my stomach
because of the nature of the violence
and the age of the offenders,” police
spokesman Simon Drobik said.
Officers responded Saturday around 8
a.m. to a 911 call reporting the two
bodies in a field. They found one vic-
tim lying on a mattress and another
lying on the ground. Jerome Eskeets,
a third victim who said he was able to
flee, was hospitalized for his injuries.
Eskeets told police that he recog-
nized one of the “kids” hitting and
kicking him as someone who lived in
a house nearby, and police found the
trio of suspects there.

If you happen to be at one of the track and
fields along the Peninsula, there’s a good
chance it was a creation of South San
Francisco’s Interstate Grading and Paving.
The latest local project by the 36-year-old
family-owned company is South San
Francisco High School’s new track and field
complex that’s slated for completion this
fall. The contractor opened business at 128
S. Maple Ave. in 1978 and has stayed in the
family since.
“All four of our grandparents were raised
in South San Francisco,” said owner and
partner Craig Caron, whose father, aunt and
uncle started the firm.
Caron grew up in South City, but lives in
Redwood City now. Not only do many
employees have children who attend these
South City high schools right now, but
many of our employees themselves went to
school there too.
The company enjoys projects like build-
ing fields because its owners see it as a way
to give back to community.
“We’re lucky enough to have many of our
employees reside right here in the commu-
nity,” he said. “That created a deeper interest
in doing these jobs.”
Craig Caron and his brother Bruce have
taken over the family company in recent
years. Now, about half of
their business is creating
new school track and
fields, however, they still
do conventional grading
and paving projects.
Track and field construc-
tion and stadium recon-
struction has been the
focus for the company in
the last 10 years.
“Many years ago, we were building roads
and parking lots,” Craig Caron said. “With
the creation of this new synthetic field sys-
tem, it has opened up a new avenue of work
development for us. As this work became
more and more abundant, we were able to
gain more contracts for it.”
The new synthetic turf is a lot easier to
maintain, he noted.
“You don’t have to have a grass specialist
to grow lawns and fertilize it,” he said. “We
only have so much water these days.”
Because of this growth, Interstate has
built most of the high school track and field
facilities within the county. These projects
include Hillsdale, Capuchino, Aragon,
Mills, Woodside, Sequoia, Menlo-Atherton,
Carlmont and Serra high schools.
“It’s a great sense of accomplishment
when you deliver that product they play on
for so many years and see players and par-
ticipants on the field you constructed,” he
said. “It’s gratifying to know the kids have
such a high-level facility to play on for so
many years. The fields we grew up on were
nowhere near this. They had gopher holes
and these kids have collegiate or profes-
sional level facilities and they’re only in
high school; it’s a great benefit.”
The company does gain every single field
through a low bid.
“The reason we keep doing them is we’ve
become pretty good at them,” he said.
“We’ve perfected the art of building them
through repetition. We can build them effi-
ciently. We definitely like working all over
the Peninsula.”
The company does travel to places like
San Jose, Gilroy, Mountain View,
Livermore, Morgan Hill and Marin County
for work, he said.
This week, the company will be paving
the track at South San Francisco High
School. For more information on Interstate

Coastal burglar
takes plea deal
A 27-year-old Pacifica man
caught in the act of burglarizing a
home after a neighbor watched him
prop a ladder up
against a home
and squirm
through a glass
door received
two years in
prison Monday.
Kenneth Alan
Sp o o n h u n t e r
pleaded no con-
test to residen-
tial burglary and
admitted he was on felony proba-
tion for an earlier burglary. He
received the two-year term with
credit of 260 days and must serve
half the sentence, leaving him
about eight months to go.
Pacifica police arrested
Spoonhunter around 4 p.m. March
14 after the neighbor of his targeted
home alerted them to a stranger
climbing up a ladder onto a deck area
and struggling through the door.
Officers took Spoonhunter into cus-

of stolen property.
Police reported finding the home

IRS collecting
phone scam data
The Internal Revenue Service is
setting up a centralized reporting
system for a series of scams in
which callers have asked residents
for payment for alleged back taxes,
according to San Mateo police.
The IRS does not request payment
over the phone and instead sends out
notices by mail, according to San
Mateo police.
Because of the volume of reports
for the past few months, San Mateo
police will no longer take reports of
these phone scams unless extenuat-
ing circumstances dictate otherwise.
Instead, anyone who receives a call
from someone posing as an IRS
agent is asked to go to www.treas-
.shtml to make a report.
Many of the callers are outside the
area and oftentimes out of state so
the new system will enable better
location and prosecution of those
making the phony calls, according
to San Mateo police. More informa-
tion about phone scams can also be
found at sanmateopd.org.

Law blocks some brown lawn fees during droughts
SACRAMENTO — Homeowner associations can no longer
slap fines on residents with dry, brown lawns during droughts
under legislation that took effect Monday.
Gov. Jerry Brown signed AB2100 fol-
lowing an April emergency order pro-
hibiting homeowner associations from
penalizing residents who conserve water
in a declared drought.
Democratic Assemblywoman Nora
Campos of San Jose introduced the bill
after a San Lorenzo man was threatened by
his homeowner association with up to
$1,000 in fines for not watering his lawn.
The warning came even after the governor declared a drought
emergency in January.
AB2100 extends the prohibition on retaliating against
homeowners conserving water to future droughts declared by
the state or local governments. Other fines for landscaping
issues, including weeds and vegetation in fire-prone areas, are
still permitted.

He estimated the change could affect thou-

convicted of misdemeanors for things like

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant
Rights of Los Angeles also projected the
change could affect thousands of immi-
grants in California. It estimated that more
than 100,000 children legally residing in
the United States had a parent deported for a
misdemeanor crime between 1997 and
2007. It said similar legal changes have
been adopted by Nevada and Washington
“While the federal government continues
to turn a blind eye to our broken immigra-
tion system, California continues to
advance state legislation to ensure aspiring
citizens are integrated into our fabric
instead of being in the shadows,” the
group’s policy and advocacy director,
Joseph Villela, said in a statement.
There was no organized opposition to the
bill by Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens.
It had bipartisan support, passing the
Senate on a 31-4 vote and clearing the
Assembly 68-1.
Lara said the existing law can result in
deportation even if the immigrant had most
of a yearlong sentence suspended and
served only a few days in jail.
Under the Illegal Immigration Reform
and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996,
those convicted of aggravated felonies as
defined in federal law can be deported with-
out a hearing and with no chance to appeal.
They also face tougher criminal penalties if
they return to the United States illegally.
The conviction can also make them ineligi-
ble for asylum or citizenship.
The bill does not affect deportations of
those who are in the country illegally nor
of those convicted of committing felonies
under California law.

TECUN UMAN, Guatemala — The man-in-
the-know nursed a late-morning beer at a bar
near the Suchiate River that separates
Guatemala from Mexico, and answered a
question about his human smuggling busi-
ness with a question: “Do you think a coyote
is going to say he’s a coyote?”
Dressed as a migrant in shorts and sandals
but speaking like an entrepreneur, he then
described shipments of tens of thousands of
dollars in human cargo from the slums of
Honduras and highlands of Guatemala to
cities across the United States.
“It’s business,” he said, agreeing to speak
to a reporter only if guaranteed anonymity.
“Sometimes, business is very good.”
Judging by the dramatic increase in the
number of minors apprehended in the United
States in recent months, it seems the human
smuggling business from Central America is
booming. The vast majority of migrants
who enter the U.S. illegally do so with the
help of a network of smugglers known as
“coyotes,” so named for the scavengers that
prowl the border.
It is a high-risk, often high-yield busi-
ness estimated to generate $6.6 billion a
year for smugglers along Latin America’s
routes to the U.S., according to a 2010
United Nations report. The migrants pay
anywhere from $4,000 to $10,000 each for
the illegal journey across thousands of
miles in the care of smuggling networks
that in turn pay off government officials,
gangs operating on trains and drug cartels
controlling the routes north.
The exact profit is hard to calculate,
though some experts estimate it’s $3,500 to
$4,000 per migrant if the journey goes as
planned. Smuggling organizations may
move from dozens to hundreds of migrants
at a time.
“We’re talking about a market where chaos
reigns,” said Rodolfo Casillas, a migrant
expert at the Latin American Faculty of
Social Sciences in Mexico.
The surge in unaccompanied minors and
women with children migrating from
Central America has put new attention on
decades-old smuggling organizations.
More than 57,000 unaccompanied
minors, the vast majority from Guatemala,
El Salvador and Honduras, were apprehended
at the U.S. border from October to June,
according to the Border Patrol. That’s more
than double the same period last year.
The smugglers are profiting from the ris-
ing violence in gang-ridden cities of Central
America, and the yearning of families to be
reunited; parents often head north to find
work and save money to send for their chil-
dren, sometimes years later.
Many of the children and teenagers who
travelled to the United States recently said
they did so after hearing they would be
allowed to stay. The U.S. generally releases
unaccompanied children to parents, rela-
tives or family friends while their cases take
years to wend through overwhelmed immi-
gration courts. That reality gave rise to
rumors of a new law or amnesty for children.
Some say coyotes helped spread those
rumors to drum up new business following a
huge drop in Mexicans migrating to the
United States. Arrests of migrants on the
southwestern U.S. border dropped from
about 1.1 million annually a decade ago to
415,000 last year.
Immigrants’ rights advocates in the U.S.
say they are seeing more children from
Central America who are not only fleeing
gang recruitment and random violence, but
who have been targeted themselves.
“We deal with torture victims in the
Congo and some of these kids have similar
stories,” said Judy London, a lawyer with
the Public Counsel’s Immigrants’ Rights
Project in Los Angeles. “Kidnappings on
the way home from school, being held for
ransom, sexual violence. We hadn’t seen the
numbers of girls before.”
Because of that, some smugglers say they
are in the service business.
“The most important thing is to help these
people,” said another smuggler in Ixtepec, a
town in the Mexican state of Oaxaca where
many migrants board the northbound train
known as “La Bestia,” or The Beast.
The smuggler goes by the name of Antonio
Martinez, which is most likely a pseudo-
nym, though one that appears on an arrest
record, he said. He wears Nike sport shoes,
jeans and a pressed blue Oxford shirt, the two
top buttons open to reveal a tattoo of Jesus
Christ on his left breast. After spending 12
years in U.S. prisons for drug possession, he
said, he converted to Christianity and fell
into the coyote business.
“The coyote is essential,” he said. “If you
don’t have a compass, you can get lost.”
Martinez appears to be an independent
contractor. He said he charges $2,500 for
the trip from the Guatemalan border to the
U.S. border, where he gives Central
American migrants fake Mexican identity
cards and makes them learn the first stanza of
the Mexican national anthem before hand-
ing them off to another smuggler.
Hopefully, if they are apprehended in the
U.S., they’ll only be sent back to Mexico,
where they can try again, Martinez said.
Most smugglers charge far more, having
raised their prices in recent years to com-
pensate for the drop in Mexican business
and to offset the “taxes” charged by cartels
for moving people through their territories.
From Honduras, Karen Ferrera and her 8-
month-old daughter traveled with a coyote
she had known since childhood, a friend of
her brother’s whom she paid $4,000 for
three tries to get in. They traveled mostly by
bus, walking in some parts to avoid detec-
tion. The Honduran coyote took her as far as
the northern city of Monterrey, where he
handed her off to another coyote to get her
to across the Rio Grande and to the U.S. bor-
der. She turned herself in but was deported
with her child.

By Paul Larson

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

Who Or What Is Gladstone And
Why This Is Important
By Karin Laub and Yousur Alhlou
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — A high-level
attempt by the U.N. chief and the U.S. sec-
retary of state to end deadly Israel-Hamas
fighting was off to a rough start Monday:
Gaza’s Hamas rulers signaled they won’t
agree to an unconditional cease-fire,
Israel’s prime minister said he’ll do what-
ever is necessary to keep Israelis safe from
Hamas attacks and the overall Palestinian
death toll surpassed 560.
Across Gaza, Israeli fighter planes hit
homes and a high-rise tower, burying fam-
ilies in the rubble. The strike on the Gaza
City tower brought down most of the build-
ing, killing 11 people — including six
members of the same family — and wound-
ing 40, said Palestinian health official
Ashraf al-Kidra.
Israeli tanks, meanwhile, shelled a hos-
pital in central Gaza, killing four people
and wounding dozens as the daily death toll
surpassed 100 for a second day. Israel said
the shelling targeted rockets hidden near
the compound, and accused militants of
using civilians as shields.
At least 565 Palestinians have been
killed and more than 3,600 wounded in the
past two weeks, al-Kidra said.
On the Israeli side, seven more soldiers
were killed in clashes with Gaza fighters
Monday, bringing the military death toll
to 25 — more than twice as many as in
Israel’s last Gaza ground war in 2009.
Two civilians have also died in
Palestinian rocket attacks on Israeli cities
and scores of soldiers have been injured.
The mounting bloodshed brought U.N.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and U.S.
Secretary of State John Kerry to Cairo on
Monday, for a new cease-fire push.
However, the gaps remain wide and no
credible mediator has emerged.

Gaza death toll rises as truce effort intensifies
By Lara Jakes
CAIR — With high hopes but low expec-
tations, the U.S. stepped up calls Monday
for an international push to end fighting in
the Gaza Strip as President Barack Obama
sent his top envoy to the Mideast to help
broker a new cease-fire between Israel and
Hamas militants — the third since 2009.
Voicing fresh concern about civilian
casualties, Obama reaffirmed his belief that
Israel has the right to defend itself against a
barrage of more than 1,500 rockets being
launched by Hamas.
Yet he said Israel’s military assault of
Gaza had already done “significant damage”
to Hamas’ network of tunnels, safe havens
and other infrastructure, and said he doesn’t
want to see more civilians getting killed.
“We have serious concerns about the ris-
ing number of Palestinian civilian deaths
and the loss of Israeli lives,” Obama said in
Washington. “And that is why it now has to
be our focus and the focus of the interna-
tional community to bring about a cease-
fire that ends the fighting and can stop the
deaths of innocent civilians, both in Gaza
and in Israel.”
As Obama spoke, U.S. Secretary of State
John Kerry flew to Cairo to join diplomatic
efforts to resume a truce that last had been
agreed to in November 2012. He will urge
the militant Palestinian group to accept a
cease-fire agreement offered by Egypt that
would halt two weeks of fighting that has
descended into war and killed at least 500
Palestinians and more than two-dozen
Kerry headed almost immediately into a
meeting with U.N. Secretary General Ban
Ki-Moon, where he announced the U.S. will
send $47 million in humanitarian aid for
tens of thousands of Palestinians who have
fled their homes in Gaza to escape the vio-
lence. Kerry’s top aides warned, however,
that achieving an immediate and lasting
cease-fire would be difficult and he hoped to
make any progress over the next several
days to secure even a temporary pause in the
Ban, speaking to reporters before the
meeting with Kerry, said he was disappoint-
ed that nine months of U.S.-led talks
between Israel and the Palestinians hadn’t
yielded better results. Those negotiations
broke off last April after it was clear that
neither side would make major concessions
needed to clinch a peace plan.
“Violence must stop and must stop now, ”
Ban told reporters. He added, “We can’t
claim victory simply by returning matters
to where they stood before, which led to ter-
rible bloodshed.”

Rebels release train with
bodies from downed jet
By Nicolas Garriga and Nicolae Dumitrache
HRABOVE, Ukraine — Bowing to international pressure,
pro-Moscow separatists released a train packed with bodies
and handed over the black boxes from the downed Malaysia
Airlines plane, four days after it plunged into rebel-held
eastern Ukraine.
With body parts decaying in sweltering heat and signs
that evidence at the crash site was mishandled, anger in
Western capitals has mounted at the rebels and their allies in
Moscow. Their reluctant cooperation will soothe mourning
families and help investigators, but may do little to recon-
cile the East-West powers struggling over Ukraine’s future.
Russia’s Defense Ministry said Monday it saw no evi-
dence a missile was fired and denied involvement in the
downing of Flight 17 — and suggested the Ukrainian mili-
tary was at fault. President Vladimir Putin spoke out but
showed no sign of abandoning the separatists as fighting
flared anew near the site of the crash.
President Barack Obama accused the rebels of tampering
with evidence and insulting victims’ families, warning of
new sanctions. Europeans will consider their own sanctions
The bodies of the 298 victims, most from the
Netherlands, have become a part of the conflict in Ukraine
because they could hold evidence of what brought the plane
down on July 17 as it was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala
Grief turned to anger as families begged to get the bodies
of their loved ones back, while the separatists held on to the
“Bodies are just lying there for three days in the hot sun.
There are people who have this on their conscience,” said
Silene Fredriksz-Hoogzand, whose son, Bryce, and his girl-
friend Daisy Oehlers died on their way to a vacation in Bali,
in an interview with the Associated Press in the
Netherlands. “When I am in my bed at night, I see my son
lying on the ground. ... They have to come home, not only
those two. Everybody has to come home.”
International forensics experts finally gained access to
the crash site Monday — an emotional experience for the
head of the Dutch National Forensic Investigations Team,
Peter Van Vliet. Seeing the wreckage gave him goose-
bumps, he said.

Security Council unanimously adopt-
ed a resolution Monday demanding
international access to the site of the
plane downed over eastern Ukraine
and an end to military activities
around the area, following intense
pressure on a reluctant Russia to sup-
port the measure.
The resolution calls for a “full,
thorough and independent interna-
tional investigation” into the down-
ing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17
carrying 298 people in Hrabove. It
calls for pro-Russia separatists to
allow access to the site of the crash.
And it demands that armed groups who
control the crash site do not disturb
debris, belongings or victims’
All 15 council members voted in
favor of the Australia-proposed meas-
ure, which was co-sponsored by nine
other countries that lost citizens in
the crash.
The foreign ministers of Australia
and the Netherlands, along with the
U.S. ambassador and other diplomats,
challenged Russia to use its influence
with the rebels to comply with the
“I hope that Russia will now feel its
responsibility, act on its responsibil-
i t y. If it doesn’t, it’s going to have an
increasingly isolated position in the

who traveled to New York for the

Russia had pushed for the resolution
to state that the International Civil
Aviation Organization — rather than
Ukrainian authorities — take the lead
in the investigation. The final resolu-
tion fell short of that demand, but in
an effort to assuage veto-wielding
Russia, it included wording changes
that played up the participation of the
ICAO, a U.N. agency.
Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin
said he was satisfied that the ICAO
would have a prominent role in the
investigation, and welcomed the
announcement that the Netherlands
would also take a lead role.
“We could not simply allow the

The rules in Millbrae
I wholeheartedly disagree with E.

zens of Millbrae should rejoice. Just
think: You can now build whatever
you want on your property. Exceeding
height? No problem; just submit
shorter drawings. Need those three
extra bedrooms but don’t/can’t
squeeze in the required parking? No
problem; Millbrae lumber property is
empty. Too close to the neighbors
fence? No problem; stall, lie and then
hire a lawyer. Neighbor will soon
tire. And just think of the
cultural/architectural diversity that
will flower and bloom in the city with
no rules that need to be followed. The
only downside might be the extra
money needed to pay off officials to
turn their heads and blind their eyes,
but still. What a bargain it would be

Responding to
Israel-Palestine conflict
In his letter “Conflict in Gaza” (in
the July 16 edition of the Daily
Journal), Mr. Singh claims that 80
percent of the deaths in Gaza are of
civilians, but ignores the fact that the
great majority of these “civilians” are
males of military age. Hamas routine-
ly claims that its fighters are civil-
ians. True civilians would have a dif-
ferent age and gender distribution.
Mr. Singh also claims that Israel’s
purpose is to maximize the misery
and terror. If that were so, why has
Israel phoned all civilians and warned
them to vacate targeted areas ahead of
time? When has this ever been done
in warfare by any other nation?
In his letter “Israel at it once again”
(in the July 16 edition of the Daily
Journal), Mr. Caggiano claims that
Hamas was goaded into “lobbing a
few rockets into Israel.” In fact, they
have fired thousands of long-range
rockets, some highly sophisticated,
and many smuggled from Iran. He
also claims that the main goal is to
keep everyone from “sitting down.”
Yet Israel has said that when quiet
comes from Gaza, they will respond
with quiet. This has been proven in
response to two cease-fire proposals
from Egypt and the U.N. Israel has
accepted both. Hamas refused the first
and has yet to respond to the second.
When Hamas considers the welfare
and lives of its own children to be
more important than the genocide of
the Jewish people, there will be both
peace and justice for all people in that
part of the world.

The Wall Street Journal
he Obama administration is
asking Congress for more
money to fight summer wild-
fires, especially in the dry West, but
perhaps it could start by getting its
own agencies off firefighters’ backs.
We’re speaking of the Defense
Department’s recent and gratuitous fit
of environmental consciousness,
which has disrupted disaster efforts in
peak wildfire season.
Abipartisan group of 25 senators
led by Arizona’s John McCain last
Thursday sent Defense Secretary
Chuck Hagel a letter demanding an
explanation for the Pentagon’s June
decision to stop programs that supply
federal equipment to states for fight-
ing wildfires. DOD suspended the pro-
grams on grounds the equipment did-
n’t meet the latest federal emissions
standards. As if real fires aren’t major
air-polluting events.
At issue are two programs — the
Federal Excess Personal Property
Program and the Firefighter Property
Program — that every year loan local
firefighting units more than $150 mil-
lion of equipment that the federal
government no longer needs. The
programs supply tens of thousands of
items — trucks, pumps, generators,
engine parts — and have become a
lifeline for smaller, all-volunteer fire
departments that can’t afford
$500,000 for a new tanker. This is
more than charity given that the vast
majority of the wildfires these local
units battle occur on land owned by
the federal government.
But in mid-June DOD suspended the
transfer of trucks and generators,
many of which were made for military
use with diesel engines that don’t
meet the Environmental Protection
Agency’s latest emissions standards.
According to the Defense Logistics
Agency, which handles the transfers,
its employees were wading through
paperwork in May and suddenly feared
that they weren’t abiding by a
decades-old agreement with the EPAt o
submit to Clean Air Act standards.
DOD’s response to its self-generated
confusion was to suspend the pro-
gram, leaving thousands of local fire-
fighting teams without help.
An enormous state outcry caused
EPAand DOD to announce last week
that they are restarting the programs.
The wizards at DOD have concluded
that EPAgrants a “national security”
exemption to its emissions rules for
transferred military equipment.
Yet proving that no government
mistake goes without punishing oth-
ers, the agencies have nonetheless

That inspired Senator McCain’s let-
ter to Hagel asking to know how this
mess happened, as well as the details
on any new requirements. Local fire
units have enough trouble without
worrying that the feds will suddenly
seize their fire truck keys. This admin-
istration can’t even give things away
without making a mess of it.
Obama’s nonpolluting firefighters
Wondering why
asked. You answered. One week ago, I inquired what
makes San Mateo County so special that people are
willing to put up with sky-high rents and home
prices, overall Bay Area traffic headaches and the perpetual
designation for out-of-towners that the locale as “just a
little south of San Francisco.”
Why not just get the heck out of Dodge or opt not to
arrive at all and set up roots somewhere a commute is five
minutes, people don’t assume tech is the end-all, be-all
and one might be able to afford food, shelter and even a
wee bit of clothing?
Well, Leon the Giraffe, for one. Areader suggested the
metal statue near Fifth and Laurel avenues as one of sever-
al features that make Central Park in San Mateo one of the
county’s wonders — a park that was mentioned repeatedly
in the past week of suggestions, actually. The reader also
added worry every time efforts are made to “improve” the
park. “How do you improve
perfection?” she asked.
One missive broke down
suggestions into lighter, busi-
ness and historical categories:
in that order, the Pez Museum
of Burlingame, the San Bruno
headquarters of YouTube and
the Sweeney Ridge rail at the
west end of Sneath Lane where
the Portola Monument marks
the spot Europeans first spot-
ted San Francisco Bay in
Local nature received a lot
of kudos actually. Princeton Harbor and Miramar Beach
was described by one as a “guilty pleasure.” One reader’s
list of seven wonders all gave a hat tip in some part to
Mother Nature — the beaches (particularly Bean Hollow),
Filoli Gardens, trails around Water Dog Park and along the
Bay, Coyote Point Park, Butano State Park and Sawyer
Camp Trail.
While some readers simply gave spots and things, some
shared memories which explain why those treks to the
trails, visits to the San Gregorio General Store or drives
to the beach and redwoods are unlike what you’ll find else-
where. Cracking open fresh peas in season, eating the
goodies and throwing the shells out the window, was one
generous tale from a woman who said she still does it 50
years after starting. This could be a great exception to
those anti-littering campaigns.
Business might build the infrastructure but San Mateans
apparently love their great outdoors. AMidwest trans-
plant even said there are fewer flies and mosquitos here.
CuriOdyssey, Coyote Point and the city of Half Moon
Bay also rated.
That’s not to say everything great about San Mateo
County is connected to flora and fauna. One list included
Barnes & Noble (not sure if a particular store or the entire-
ty), Yumi Yogurt and the Daily Journal. Another even men-
tioned a particular Daily Journal columnist with nary a
prompt from yours truly. Excuse me while I blush a bit.
Of course, this same recommender also expressed won-
der at, and I paraphrase for the benefit of a family newspa-
per, the number of county folks who’s heads remain firmly
placed in their posterior, so I’m taking the personal nod
with a grain or two of salt. I’m not sure that my weekly
quips or the chance to shake one’s head at ridiculousness
is enough to outweigh even the prettiest of views and mar-
velous of attractions.
Back in the day — the days of generations past, that is
— another reader said convenience was what drove people
to come and stay. The ocean, the Bay, San Francisco,
parks, Stanford University. Everywhere you turned there
was something. Of course, this reader did find that one day
everywhere he turned there were too many people and has
since headed north where the summer thermometer zooms
into the triple digits.
Maybe the Peninsula weather gets another gold star.
Redwood City would certainly think so.
What I think is that based on the quick and fervent
response one of the county’s greatest assets is its people.
Sure there are those who do need a swift kick or who have
no investment — yet — in this place they lay their head.
But for those who have made the commitment to San
Mateo County, it is clear that this is a place like no other.
They may spend endless frustrating years fighting over
synthetic turf in parks, a new Safeway design downtown
or the glut of parking at a Chinese restaurant but that’s
only because it is their own backyard.
So next time somebody mentions San Mateo County
and asks me, Who cares? I can point to the handfuls of
people who took the time to share their favorites and say,
They do.

NEW YORK — The stock market
started the week with a slight loss on
Monday as investors weighed a mixed
batch of corporate earnings against
mounting political turmoil.
European leaders are considering
tougher sanctions on Russia for its
backing of separatists accused of
shooting down a Malaysia Airways
passenger plane in Ukraine last week.
The European Union’s foreign minis-
ters will meet Tuesday to discuss their
next steps.
In Washington, President Barack
Obama demanded that international
investigators get full access to the
crash site and said the separatists had
blocked investigators.
“It looks like we hit a speed bump,”
said Jack Ablin, chief investment offi-
cer at BMO Private Bank in Chicago.
“Earnings are coming through quite
nicely so far, but geopolitics trump
earnings today.”
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index
fell 4.59 points, or 0.2 percent, to
close at 1,973.63. Seven of the 10
industry groups fell, led by retailers
and other consumer-discretionary
The Dow Jones industrial average
fell 48.45 points, or 0.3 percent, to
17,051.73, while the Nasdaq compos-
ite lost 7.44 points, or 0.2 percent, to
European markets ended lower.
Germany’s DAX dropped 1.1 percent
while France’s CAC-40 lost 0.7 per-
cent. Britain’s FTSE 100 slipped 0.3
Afew well-known companies turned
in results that fell short of estimates
on Monday. The toy maker Hasbro
reported second-quarter earnings and
revenue that came in below analysts’
targets. Rising sales of My Little
Pony, Transformers and other toys
weren’t enough to stem a decline in
sales of games such as Twister.
Hasbro’s stock sank $1.43, or 2.7 per-
cent, to $51.78.
Six Flags Entertainment posted
higher profits and sales in the second
quarter, but the theme-park operator’s
revenue came up short of what analysts
had expected, partially a result of slug-
gish attendance. Six Flags slumped
$1.69, or 4.1 percent, to $39.31.
Despite the dour news, the second-
quarter earnings season is off to a
strong start: Of the 88 companies that
have reported results so far, 58 have
beaten analysts’ estimates.
Nearly a third of the companies in
the S&P 500 index will hand in their
quarterly results this week, including
such heavyweights as Apple on
Tuesday, Boeing on Wednesday and
Amazon on Thursday.
In other trading on Monday, bench-
mark U.S. crude oil rose $1.46 to
$104.59 a barrel on the New York
Mercantile Exchange. In the market
for U.S. government bonds, the yield
on the 10-year Treasury note slipped to
2.47 percent from 2.48 percent late
Among other companies in the
news, Yum Brands fell $3.29, or 4.3
percent, to $74.13 amid a new food-
safety scare in China. The operator of
KFC and Pizza Hut restaurants said its
stores in China stopped buying prod-
ucts from a Shanghai supplier, while
local officials investigate allegations
that the supplier repackaged old beef
and chicken and stamped new expira-
tion dates on them.

SAN FRANCISCO — Netflix’s second-
quarter earnings more than doubled as new
episodes from a hit series helped the
Internet video service surpass 50 million
worldwide subscribers for the first time.
The gains announced Monday include an
additional 570,000 U.S. subscribers,
slightly more than Netflix’s management
predicted. The quarter is typically the com-
pany’s slowest of the year, as people spend
more time outdoors instead of watching
Investors applauded the second-quarter
results, pushing Netflix’s stock up $4.05 to
$456 in extended trading. The shares have
surged by 23 percent this year, while the
Standard & Poor’s 500 index has increased 7
The second quarter featured one of
Netflix’s marquee attractions, “Orange Is
The New Black,” which returned for its sec-
ond season in early June. As with Netflix’s
other original series, all 13 episodes of
“Orange Is The New Black,” were released
simultaneously so subscribers could watch
the story unfold at their leisure.
“Consumers are enjoying more than ever
being in control of their own schedules,
able to click and watch whenever they
want,” Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said in a
Monday interview.
Without breaking down the specific view-
ership numbers, Hastings said “Orange Is
The New Black” became Netflix’s most-
watched series during the first month after
the June 6 release of the second season.
“Orange Is the New Black,” set in a
women’s prison, received 12 of the 31
Emmy Award nominations bestowed upon
Netflix programming for this year’s awards.
Netflix’s Emmy nominations eclipsed the
24 garnered by longtime pay-TV channel

BEIJING — McDonald’s and KFC in
China faced a new food safety scare
Monday after a Shanghai television
station reported a supplier sold them
expired beef and chicken.
The companies said they immediate-
ly stopped using meat from the suppli-
er, Husi Food Co., Ltd. The Shanghai
office of China’s food and drug agency
said it was investigating and told cus-
tomers to suspend use of the supplier’s
Dragon TV said Sunday that Husi,
owned by OSI Group of Aurora,
Illinois, repackaged old beef and chick-
en and put new expiration dates on
them. It said they were sold to
McDonald’s, KFC and Pizza Hut restau-
The report added to a series of food
safety scares in China that have bat-
tered public confidence in dairies, fast
food outlets and other suppliers.
McDonald’s Corp. and Yum Brands
Inc., which owns KFC, Pizza Hut and
Taco Bell, said they were conducting
their own investigations.
“Food safety is a top priority for
McDonald’s,” the company said on its
microblog account. The company said
it pursues “strict compliance” with
consumer safety laws and regulations
and has “zero tolerance for illegal
behavior. ”
A third company, sandwich shop
chain Dicos, said in a statement that it
stopped using sausage patties supplied
by Husi. Dicos is owned by Taiwan’s
Ting Hsin International Group, and the
company website said it had 2,000 out-
lets in China as of September 2013.
The Shanghai office of the State Food
and Drug Administration said it was
working with police to investigate
“At present, the company has been
sealed and suspect products seized,” the
agency said on its website.
McDonald’s sealed 4,500 cases of
beef, pork, chicken and other products
supplied by Husi for investigation and
Pizza Hut sealed 500 cases of seasoned
beef, the city government said in a

NEW YORK — Yahoo is buying
Flurry Inc., a startup that helps other
programmers build better mobile appli-

for smartphones and tablets.
The deal announced Monday is the
latest in a wave of mostly small acquisi-
tions that Yahoo Inc. has made during
the two-year reign of CEO Marissa
Mayer as the company’s tries to attract
more traffic on mobile devices.
The shopping spree hasn’t yet pro-
vided Yahoo with the means to boost its

Microsoft makes
design central to its future
REDMOND, Wash. — Before Ralf
Groene helped devise the look and feel
of Microsoft’s Surface tablet, he
designed food — or “food concepts,” he
says, for people on the go. Among
them: dried noodles that come wrapped
around a pair of chopsticks; a tubular
meal that can be pulled with two fingers
from a car cup holder base; and a fork
that squeezes out sauce.
Though none of these ideas made it
into production, the principles behind
them can be applied to computing
devices that fit into busy lives, says
Groene, and they are just as varied as the
ones Microsoft now uses to redesign all
its software and devices.
“In a way, we’ve designed Surface
with very similar principles,” Groene
said on a recent tour of the Surface lab
on Microsoft’s sprawling campus in
Redmond, Washington. “Surface is try-
ing to dissolve into your day.”

College Monday, the Tigers were at a definite
Terra Nova coach Kenny Milch had only six
players available — it was supposed to be
seven until a family emergency erased a poten-
tial body.
Half Moon Bay, on the other hand, was at full
strength. And despite losing two key pieces
from last season’s Peninsula Athletic League
North Division championship squad, the cup-
board is far from bare for the Cougars.
It was Half Moon Bay’s superior depth — as
well as talent — that ultimately led to a 63-43
“I thought we played pretty well,” said Half
Moon Bay coach Rich Forslund. “It’s summer.
I don’t want to be a well-oiled machine in the
The Cougars jumped out to a quick 8-0 lead
behind three straight buckets from Ryan Yerby
— including a pair of 3-pointers — and were
never really threatened.
Case DuFrance, a senior center, led the
Cougars with 12 points, while Yerby finished
with 11. In all, Half Moon Bay had eight differ-
ent players score.
Despite graduating center Rico Nuño and
shooting guard Corey Cilia, Forslund still has
lofty expectations for his club.
“I expect big things out of this group,”
Forslund said. “It’s been a good summer for us.”
Terra Nova was led by Gerald Colvin, who
finished with a game-high 16 points, while
Jared Milch finished with 13.
The Tigers, however, were completely worn
out trying to play with a short bench. In the
second half, Terra Nova managed just 19 points
and made only three field goals.
Terra Nova coach Kenny Milch was just
thrilled in playing in the third-place game,
however, considering the road the Tigers took
to get there. The Tigers beat Burlingame in the
round of 16, 63-56. In the quarterfinals, Terra
Nova knocked off Serra, 53-52.

ard to believe but football sea-
son is upon us — not that it ever
really takes a break. NFL teams
begin reporting to training camp this
week with the first game of the 2014-15
season, the annual Hall of Fame Game,
kicking off Aug. 3.
That means the official start of the high
school football sea-
son is about a month
away, with practices
scheduled to begin
Aug. 15.
In the Peninsula
Athletic League,
there will be a num-
ber of head coaching
changes. Five coach-
es in nearly a third of
the 18-team PAL.
Despite new faces,
there should be plen-
ty of continuity in most instances.
Tim Adams has the task of replacing
the legendary Bill Gary at Terra Nova.
There should be little dropoff, however,
as Gray brought Adams aboard to be the
offensive coordinator several years ago
to install the spread offense. The rise of
the Tigers into a Central Coast Section
power coincided with Adams’ arrival.
Jay Oca is taking over for Frank Moro
at South City. Oca served as an assistant
under Moro and is well versed in the
Warriors’ football culture.
One of the biggest changes came at
Capuchino, which hired former South
City assistant and Carlmont head coach
Ben White, who returned to the Peninsula
after about a decade in the Central Valley.
White is the Mustangs’ third coach in
three years. It may take a couple of years
to rebuild the Mustangs, but as long as
White stays for the long haul, Capuchino
is in good hands.
Carlmont sees the return of Rich

program last season and led the junior

SACRAMENTO — Gov. Jerry Brown
announced Monday that he has signed a bill
limiting full-contact football practices at
middle and high schools in response to con-
cerns about concussions, even as many
teams already comply with the rules.
Brown approved the bill, AB 2127, with
the support of medical groups and the
California Interscholastic Federation, which
oversees California high school athletics.
Assemblyman Ken
Cooley, D-Rancho
Cordova, said his bill is
motivated by parents wor-
ried about the risks asso-
ciated with concussions,
which include long-term
brain damage and early
onset dementia.
Under the legislation
taking effect in 2015, drills involving
game-speed tackling are prohibited in the
offseason. They are limited to 90-minute
sessions twice a week the rest of the year.
The rules apply to public, private and charter
“There’s really not a big uproar about this
because it really is nothing new for our
coaches,” said Brian Seymour, a senior
director with the California Interscholastic
His organization has also addressed con-
cussion risks by limiting total practice time
to 18 hours per week. At the college level,
the Ivy League and Pac-12 Conference have
reduced full-contact practice to cut down on
head injuries.
Some lawmakers questioned whether the
issue merits state regulation and whether the
proposal puts students at a competitive dis-
advantage when competing against students
in other states.
Cooley notes that Texas, the setting of the
“Friday Night Lights” book and TV series,
has even stricter rules by allowing only one
90-minute full-contact session a week.

SANTA CLARA — The San Francisco
49ers are eager to move forward from a for-
gettable offseason.
They made nearly as much news off the
field as in free agency and the draft, although
they accomplished their top priority by re-
signing quarterback Colin Kaepernick as
the face of the franchise.
Distractions were everywhere in the days,
weeks and months after San Francisco’s sea-
son ended in the NFC championship game
against biggest rival Seattle, the eventual
Super Bowl champion.
Two key faces have been absent as they
seek new contracts, right guard Alex Boone
and tight end Vernon Davis. On the defen-
sive side, linebacker Aldon Smith and cor-
nerback Chris Culliver each dealt with off-
season arrests and court appearances.
There was also news that the Browns
inquired about trading for coach Jim
Harbaugh in January. Instead, the coach
enters the fourth season of his $25 million,
five-year contract in San Francisco.
Now, the Niners kick off training camp
eager to recapture the NFC West that Seattle
stole away in 2013.
Some things to watch as the team begins
training camp:
Kaepernick’s new deal
Kaepernick is rich with a new contract
that got done before training camp, as
everybody hoped. He’s ready to prove he’s
worth being paid among the best QBs in the
league and can carry this team to a champi-
onship the way Hall of Famers Joe Montana
and Steve Young did.
“To me it’s something that I feel like I’m
always striving to be in that group, in the
elite group in the NFL. Not necessarily pay,
but as far as a player,” Kaepernick said.
“And whatever comes along with that,
comes along with it.
“But, for me, I’m worried about trying to
be the best player I can and try to help this
organization win as many games as we can.”
No Bowman and Smith?
The 49ers are bracing to be without two of
their best linebackers, injured NaVorro
Bowman (a devastating left knee injury sus-
tained in the NFC championship game) and
perhaps Smith if he’s suspended by the NFL.
There’s depth in this unit, and Patrick
Willis will be called upon to handle even
greater leadership duties.
“For us, it’s not something we worry
about,” Willis said when asked about Smith.
“He’s out here working. He’s practicing
every day. He’s working out every day. He’s
been a great teammate. That’s our focus
right now: worrying about the present.”
Martin’s transition
Jonathan Martin is out West getting a
fresh start following the bullying scandal in
Miami. He gets to play for his old college
coach at Stanford, Harbaugh.
Slowed by mononucleosis during the off-
season program, Martin is prepared to fit in
wherever needed to land a spot on the team.
Martin was traded from the Dolphins to
the Niners in mid-March, providing him
with a new start after his departure from
Miami last October. He accused teammate
Richie Incognito of bullying.
Martin said not once did he consider leav-
ing the sport for good.
“I’ve always been a football player. I
couldn’t ask for a better career,” he said. “It
was a childhood dream to make it to the
NFL. It’s been great so far. It’ll be great to
be on the field.”
New home
The 49ers know the pressure is on to
begin a special new era in their $1.2 billion
Levi’s Stadium.
After celebrating the storied tradition at
Candlestick Park in its final season, 2014
begins a new era for the franchise — and the
49ers want to get it started the right way.
The secondary
Safety Donte Whitner departed for his
hometown Cleveland Browns. Cornerbacks
Carlos Rogers and Tarell Brown wound up
across the bay with the Oakland Raiders.

49ers start fresh after
forgettable offseason
San Mateo to play for Area 2 title
The San Mateo Post 82 American Legion
baseball team will vie for its sixth straight
Area 2 championship Tuesday evening after
beating San Bruno 4-2 in the winners’ bracket
final Monday afternoon at San Bruno Park.
San Bruno, which suffered its first loss in
the tournament, will the play the winner
between Palo Alto and Redwood City at 4 p.m.
Wednesday for a chance to play San Mateo for
the championship at 7 p.m. San Mateo would
need to be beaten twice to be denied a spot in
the state tournament in Yountville.
Monday’s result was a far cry from Friday
night’s laugher, a game in which San Mateo
buried San Bruno 18-2 in the final game of the
regular season.
San Bruno proved that result was a fluke.
“They had no players Friday,” said San
Mateo assistant coach Rick Lavezzo. “They
had some players [Monday].”
In fact, Post 82 had to come from behind to
secure a spot in the championship game. San
Bruno took a 1-0 lead in the first inning, but
San Mateo pitcher Cavlin Riley kept it in
check through the seventh. Riley allowed just
the one run on five hits before being lifted for
reliever Michael Valdez in the eighth.
San Bruno scratched out its second run of the
game against Valdez, with Angelo Bortolin
stroking an RBI double. Valdez settled down,
however, striking out the side in both the
eighth and ninth innings.
The San Mateo offense, meanwhile, took a
while to get into gear.
“Their kid (Jean Paul Abourette) threw a
great game,” Lavezzo said.
Post 82 finally broke through with two runs
in the fifth on a Christian Conci two-out, two-
run double.
San Mateo tacked on a run in the seventh,
scoring an unearned run when the San Bruno
left fielder could not handle Neil Sterling’s fly
ball. Post 82 added an insurance run in the
eighth. Riley doubled and came home on an
error on a Ryan Cuddy fly ball.

By Josh Dubow
OAKLAND — There was a common theme
to the players the Oakland Raiders brought
in this offseason.
Discarded or unwanted by their former
teams, players with a history of success in
the NFLtalked about the motivation of hav-
ing a “chip on the shoulder” when they
arrived in Oakland.
“Everybody here has something to prove
and they’re going to work and we all know
we have something left,” new running back
Maurice Jones-Drew said. “If it was from a
bad year last year or just things didn’t work
out with the other team or whatever it may
have been. As a whole, we’re fighting for
the same thing, which is respect.”
Jones, no longer wanted in Jacksonville,
is one of many veterans with Pro Bowl or
Super Bowl experience looking for a fresh
start in Oakland.
He’s joined by quarterback Matt Schaub,
run out of Houston; pass rushers Justin Tuck
and LaMarr Woodley, too expensive for the
New York Giants and Pittsburgh, respective-
ly; and cornerbacks Tarell Brown and Carlos
Rogers, no longer needed in San Francisco.
While almost all the notable additions are
at least 29 years old and likely on the down-
side of their careers, they discount talk the
Raiders have built contender for 2009
instead of 2014. They believe Oakland can
end a run of 11 straight non-winning sea-
sons and become this year’s surprise team.
“I see no reason why we can’t be that team
this year, and that’s what our focus has to
be,” Tuck said.
Some things to watch during training
camp for the Raiders:
Schaub’s comeback
Schaub went from a 4,000-yard passer to
the bench in Houston after setting an NFL
record by having an interception returned
for a touchdown in four straight games. That
led to his offseason trade to the Raiders,
who immediately anointed him the starter.
But second-round pick Derek Carr was
impressive in the spring and could push to
start if Schaub can’t put last year’s struggles
behind him.
“It’s in the past,” Schaub said. “I’ve
moved on. That’s stuff that’s history. What
we’re in control of is what we do moving
forward and I’m into preparing for 2014.”
Offensive line
The Raiders have overhauled their offen-
sive line, with center Stefen Wisniewski
likely the only returning starter. Left tackle
Donald Penn and right guard Austin Howard
were signed as free agents, rookie Gabe
Jackson could step in at left guard, and last
year’s second-round pick Menelik Watson is
being counted on at right tackle. Khalif
Barnes and Kevin Boothe provide depth that
was sorely lacking last season.
Mauling Mack
The Raiders were ecstatic when pass-rush-
ing linebacker Khalil Mack lasted until fifth
in the draft, giving coach Dennis Allen a
potential game-changing defensive star.
The bar is set high for Mack, with the
Raiders making comparisons to Von Miller,
who was an immediate star in Denver when
Allen was defensive coordinator of the
Broncos. Mack brushes aside any compar-
isons but is confident he can step in and be
a star right away.
Running back rotation
Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden were
two of the top running backs in the league
as recently as 2012. But they both have
struggled with injuries and production the
past two years. Oakland brought back
McFadden as a free agent and signed Jones-
Drew in hopes at least one of them can have
a rejuvenation.
“I know what I did last year wasn’t any-
where near what I’m capable of doing, and
so this year I’m doing everything I can to
get back to the form I’m used to, and I know
Darren is as well,” Jones-Drew said.
Hayden’s health
Last year’s first-round pick DJ Hayden had
little impact as a rookie as his recovery
from a near-fatal heart injury slowed his
start to the season. He then struggled on the
field before his year was cut short by a
sports hernia. Hayden then missed critical
offseason time with a sprained ankle, rais-
ing questions whether he will ever be
healthy enough to be the shutdown corner-
back the Raiders seek.
Raiders enter camp with ’chip’ on shoulders
Manziel scores as
NFL’s top-selling jersey
CLEVELAND — Second on Cleveland’s
depth chart, Johnny Manziel already tops
one NFL list.
The popular rookie quarterback, who will
begin his first training camp this week as a
backup, had the league’s top-selling jersey
since April 1. The league
said Monday that
Manziel’s No. 2 outsold
all others from April 1 to
July 17 on
Dick’s Sporting Goods
also said that Manziel’s
jersey is its top seller.
Manziel is followed on
the NFLShop.com list
by three quarterbacks:
Seattle’s Russell Wilson, San Francisco’s
Colin Kaepernick and Denver’s Peyton
Manning. Seahawks cornerback Richard
Sherman is fifth followed by St. Louis rook-
ie Michael Sam, the league’s first openly
gay player.
New England’s Tom Brady is seventh and
New Orleans QB Drew Brees is eighth on the
list. Minnesota rookie quarterback Teddy
Bridgewater is 13th and Houston defensive
end Jadeveon Clowney, the top overall
pick, had the 16th best-selling jersey.
The league did not say how many Manziel
jerseys — priced at $99.95 a pop — sold
during the period. More than a few seemed
to have been purchased in the Cleveland
area, where brown or white Manziel jerseys
can be found all over the city.
The Browns drafted the former Texas A&M
star, who earned his Johnny Football nick-
name with his playmaking ability, with the
No. 22 overall pick on May 8. He’s sched-
uled to report to training camp on
Wednesday and will battle with Brian Hoyer
to be Cleveland’s starter.
Bills DT Dareus to enter
substance abuse program
PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Bills defensive tack-
le Marcell Dareus agreed to enter an NFL
substance abuse program in a bid to have
felony drug charges in Alabama dismissed,
his attorney said on Monday.
Rod Giddens wrote in an email to The
Associated Press that Dareus was allowed to
enter the program during a hearing at
Calhoun County Court in Alabama earlier in
the day. Dareus attended the hearing while
being excused from training camp in subur-
ban Rochester, New York.
Buffalo’s WKBW-TV first reported the
Dareus, who is from Alabama and played
for the Crimson Tide, was arrested and
charged with possession of a controlled
substance and drug paraphernalia after
being stopped by a state trooper on May 5.
The charges will be dismissed and poten-
tially expunged should the 2011 first-round
draft pick successfully complete the pro-
This marks the first positive step during
what’s been a troubled offseason for Dareus.
Four weeks after being arrested in
Alabama, Dareus was allegedly racing team-
mate Jerry Hughes when he crashed his
2012 Jaguar into a tree near a busy intersec-
tion not far from Ralph Wilson Stadium.
Texans place LB
Brian Cushing on PUP
HOUSTON — The Houston Texans have
placed star linebacker Brian Cushing on the
physically unable to perform list as he
recovers from a left knee injury.
Cushing was lost to the team last Oct. 20
when blocked by Kansas City running back
Jamaal Charles. The 2009 Defensive
Rookie of the Year has been plagued by
injuries throughout his five pro seasons.
Cushing is eligible to come off the PUP
list at any time during training camp, and he
still counts against Houston’s 90-man ros-
ter limit.
Houston also placed second-year line-
backer Trevardo Williams and rookie nose
tackle Louis Nix III on PUP. Nix was a third-
round pick in May.
Tackle Brennan Williams was waived after
he failed a physical.
Eagles player charged
with shoving Arizona officer
TEMPE, Ariz. — A Philadelphia Eagles
player is facing charges in Arizona after
authorities say he pushed a police officer
investigating a bar brawl.
Officials said Keelan Johnson, a first-year
safety, was arrested early Saturday follow-
ing a confrontation with officers outside a
bar in the Phoenix suburb of Tempe, home
of Arizona State University. Johnson
played in 49 games for the school.
Aprobable cause statement says Johnson
“violently pushed” an officer in the chest,
causing him to strike his head against a
tree. Police say Johnson appeared drunk and
refused officers’ orders.
He has been charged with aggravated
assault on a police officer, resisting arrest
and disorderly conduct.
Eagles spokesman Derak Boyko said the
team is disappointed in Johnson’s arrest but
is still trying to gather the facts.

NEW YORK — Pedestrians craned their
necks as Derek Jeter stood in front of a food
truck parked across the street from Central
As the New York Yankees captain winds
down his baseball life, part of his attention
already is turning to his future business
He announced the launch of Jeter
Publishing, a partnership with Simon &
Schuster, last November and became a part-
ner and brand development officer of Luvo, a
food company encouraging healthy nutri-
tion that also struck an agreement with the
Yankees. The 40-year-old posed for pictures
with the company’s first food truck Monday.
“You’ve got to get involved with things
that mean something to you, like this here
does,” Jeter said. “I don’t think you just
attach your name to anything that’s out
there. It has to mean something.”
As he’s climbed the lists of Yankees career
leaders, alongside Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig,
Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra and Mickey
Mantle, Jeter has struck
deals with national
brands such as Gatorade,
Movado, Nike’s Brand
Jordan, Rawlings and the
memorabilia dealer
Steiner Sports.
After the Yankees beat
Baltimore in his final
home opener, Jeter joked
that he didn’t have much
hope of leaving the ballpark with any
“I’m good taking the win,” he said, “but
Steiner Sports has the rest.”
As he shifts toward his retirement days,
Jeter is likely to be turning more attention
to his Turn 2 Foundation and do deals that
made him a brand spokesman and give him
Commercial ties for retired Yankees greats
are hardly unprecedented. DiMaggio was the
longtime face of Mr. Coffee and the Bowery
Savings Bank, and Berra pitched the Yoo-
hoo chocolate drink.
“There’s things that I thought of, but still
my number-one priority is to play right
now. I’ll have plenty of time to think about
that when I’m finished,” he said. “It’s not
immediate. I’ve been doing this for a long
time, so when I’m finished, I want to take
some time, where I don’t have any schedule,
and I can just sit around and enjoy myself.
But, yeah, business ventures are important
to me.”
He’s not sure how much time he will spend
in New York — he’ll be in the area some
because his parents live in New Jersey and
his sister and nephew are in the area. But he’s
already downsized his Big Apple holdings.
Atrust controlled by Jeter sold his 5,425-
square-foot apartment on the 70th floor of
Trump World Tower on Manhattan’s East
Side in October 2012 for $15.5 million. His
primary residence is set to be the 30,875-
square foot house he had constructed on
Davis Islands in Tampa, Florida, in 2010-11
that some have nicknamed “St. Jetersburg.”
While he doesn’t want to coach or manage,
he’s repeatedly said he would be interested in
becoming a team owner, which would follow
the path taken by retired NBAstars Michael
Jordan and Magic Johnson and by hockey
great Wayne Gretzky — though Gretzky has
coached, too.
“It’s not immediate,” Jeter said. “I don’t
really know about what kind of timetable it
Almost all his attention remains focused
on playing. As the Yankees make their final
trips to each city, Jeter is honored and pre-
sented with gifts. He was the focus of last
week’s All-Star game, when baseball
Commissioner Bud Selig gushed “how lucky
can this sport be to have the icon of this
generation turn out to be Derek Jeter?” The
Yankees said Friday they will honor him dur-
ing a pregame ceremony on Sept. 7.
“Everyone likes to get gifts. You like
when people say good things about you,”
Jeter said. “I don’t expect it, but when you
receive it, yeah, it makes you feel good.”
After winning five World Series titles,
Jeter would like to go out with another. The
Yankees entered Monday night 50-47,
uncertain whether they will make the post-
Jeter wouldn’t say if failure to reach the
playoffs would make his final season feel
“If. If. If. You know I don’t comment on
ifs,” he said. “My job is to play and make
sure we get to where we want to get to, so I
don’t speculate.”

Dodgers keep pace with
Giants with win over Pittsburgh
PITTSBURGH — Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched
seven strong innings, Adrian Gonzalez
reached base five times and the Los Angeles
Dodgers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 on
Monday night.
Ryu (11-5) joined Zack Greinke and Clayton
Kershaw in making the Dodgers the first team
in the majors with three 11-game winners.
The left-hander allowed two runs and five hits
with a walk and five strikeouts.
Justin Turner had two RBIs and scored twice
for the Dodgers, who snapped Pittsburgh’s
six-game home winning streak. Pirates starter
Edinson Volquez (8-7) had won four straight
starts, tying his career high.
Los Angeles played without right fielder
Yasiel Puig (left hand) and shortstop Hanley
Ramirez (left wrist) after both were injured
when they were hit by pitches last weekend in
St. Louis.
Puig and Ramirez had X-rays in Pittsburgh
that came back negative Monday.
Former Yankees’ prospect
thriving with Tigers
DETROIT — The Detroit Tigers have got-
ten a good return on their short-term invest-
ment in right-hander Joba Chamberlain.
Chamberlain leads the American League
in holds heading into Detroit’s road trip this
week against the Arizona Diamondbacks
and Los Angeles Angels.
He pitched the eighth inning in Sunday’s
sweep-avoiding win against Cleveland and
did not allow a run for the 13th time in 14
The Tigers signed the former New York
Yankees player to a one-year, $2.5 million
contract. With no Yankees rules to worry
about, he has been letting his beard grow
for six-plus months. Chamberlain jokes he
has saved money by not buying razors, but
is spending more on shampoo and condi-
Rockies place 1B
Justin Morneau on 15-day DL
DENVER — The Colorado Rockies placed
first baseman Justin Morneau on the 15-day
disabled list with a strained neck.
The move is retroactive to July 14.
To take his place on the roster, the team
selected the contract of infielder Ben
Paulsen from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
They also designated right-hander Jair
Jurrjens for assignment.
The 26-year-old Paulsen will make his
major-league debut at first base on Monday
against the Washington Nationals.
Morneau is hitting .312 with 13 homers
and 60 RBIs. He also took part in the Home
Run Derby at the All-Star game.
Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was out of the
starting lineup Monday for a second
straight game with a tender left thigh.
Tulowitzki said he still felt a “little sore,”
but didn’t think he’d have to go on the DL.

Stewart heads into the busiest
week of his year riding high from a
win in his return to sprint car rac-
Stewart raced in a sprint car last
weekend for the first time since he
broke his leg in an extracurricular
race last August. He missed the
final 15 weeks of the NASCAR sea-
son with the injury.
He vowed he would continue to
live his life, and made good on
that promise in Michigan, where
on Friday night he climbed into a
car at Tri-City Motor Speedway
and won. He also raced Saturday
night at Crystal Motor Speedway,
where he finished third.
“It felt great,” said Stewart, who
picked a pair of low-profile races
to make his return instead of join-
ing the World of Outlaws, home to
the top sprint car drivers.
“The Outlaw series was in
Pennsylvania, so that’s probably
the toughest place in the country
to try to go back. It’s probably the
toughest race to go to, period,”
Stewart said. “I didn’t feel like that
was probably the best place to try
to go back for the first time. But it
was neat to get back in the car,
finally, in a sce-
nario that was
low pressure.”
So what’s
next? More rac-
ing, but Stewart
said his sched-
ule will be
lighter than he
The three-
time NASCAR champion discussed
extracurricular racing with his
management team and Stewart-
Haas Racing competition Greg
Zipadelli and mapped out a sched-
ule that Stewart will follow. They
decided on tracks with slower
speeds out of safety concerns.
“There are some races that I real-
ly have my heart set on running,”
he said. “I’m trying to be smart
about where we’re going.”
On Monday, Stewart was headed
to Eldora Speedway, the dirt track
he owns in Rossburg, Ohio. He’ll
be hands-on the next two days as
his staff prepares to host
NASCAR’s Truck Series race on
Wednesday for the second consecu-
tive year.
“It’s about as close to being a
proud father as I can imagine
being,” he said. “Anybody that
thinks that putting on a single
NASCAR event is easy ... People
think you start working I think a
week ahead of time to get ready for
stuff like this, and it’s been a very
large, eye-opening experience for
me. It takes months and months of
work, and so many details.”
When the checkered flag falls on
the trucks, Stewart will shift to
Indianapolis Motor Speedway to
prepare for Sunday’s Sprint Cup
race. The two-time Brickyard win-
ner returns to his home track win-
less on the season and 19th in the
standings, but hopeful he can get a
breakthrough victory on the hal-
lowed Indianapolis grounds.
It doesn’t hurt, Stewart believes,
that he won in his sprint car last
“Everybody loves good juju,” he
laughed. “It was more than just a
good way to start the week. It was
a confidence boost for me. When
you haven’t won, and you haven’t
been necessarily a contender to be
in the top two or three each week
and having those opportunities to
win races, you start questioning
what is it in the equation that
you’re missing. To be able to go
out and win on Friday night and
run third on Saturday night, and to
have two good runs like that in a
car that I haven’t been in for
almost a full year now, that was a
huge confidence boost and made
me feel like, hey, maybe we’ll just
find something else.”

before Duvall launched a homer to straight-
away center to give the Giants a 5-4 lead in
the sixth. Pence’s RBI single with two outs

is 2-0 in a pair of games over the weekend.
Pacifica will play Mill Valley, also unde-
feated, in the winners’ bracket final. The
winner advances to the championship
series and are then one win away from
punching their ticket to the West Regional
in San Bernardino.
The 47th annual Joe DiMaggio League
World Series kicks off Saturday at Half
Moon Bay High School. San Bruno defeat-

Terra Nova was missing three starters — it’s

medical issue. Milch said he’s had two players
miss time because of wisdom teeth being

reattached. Afifth suffered a concussion.
And then there was a sixth player who had
several surgeries to deal with a collapsed lung
and a heart issue.
The good news for Milch and the Tigers is the

WASHINGTON — Apharmacy supervisor
at the VA was placed on leave after com-
plaining about errors and delays in deliver-
ing medications to patients at a hospital in
Palo Alto. In Pennsylvania, a doctor was
removed from clinical work after complain-
ing that on-call doctors were refusing to go
to a VAhospital in Wilkes-Barre.
Medical professionals from coast to coast
have pointed out problems at the VA, only
to suffer retaliation from supervisors and
other high-ranking officials, according to a
report Monday by a private government
The report compiled by the Project on
Government Oversight, a group that con-
ducts its own investigations and works with
whistle-blowers, is based on comments and
complaints filed by nearly 800 current and
former VA employees and veterans. Those
comments indicate that concerns about the
VAgo far beyond the long waiting times or
falsified appointment records that have
received much recent attention, extending
to the quality of health care services veter-
ans receive, the report said.
The group set up a website in mid-May for
complaints and said it has received allega-
tions of wrongdoing from 35 states and the
District of Columbia.
“A recurring and fundamental theme has
become clear: VA employees across the
country fear they will face repercussions if
they dare to raise a dissenting voice,” said
Danielle Brian, the group’s executive direc-
tor. “Until we eliminate the culture of intim-
idation and climate of fear, no reforms will
be able to turn this broken agency around.”
The report from the group, known as
POGO, came a day before the Senate
Veterans Affairs Committee was to hold a
hearing on the nomination of Robert
McDonald to be VA secretary. If confirmed
by the Senate, McDonald would replace act-
ing Secretary Sloan Gibson, who took over
May 30 after Eric Shinseki resigned amid a
growing uproar over treatment delays and
falsified records at VAhospitals and clinics
A federal investigative agency says it is
examining 67 claims of retaliation by
supervisors at the VA against employees
who filed whistle-blower complaints. The
independent Office of Special Counsel said
30 of the complaints about retaliation have
passed the initial review stage and are being
further investigated for corrective action
and possible discipline against VAsupervi-
sors and other executives.
Monday’s private report details the case
of Stuart Kallio, an inpatient pharmacy
technician supervisor at the Palo Alto VA
Health Care System who complained to
superiors about what he described as incom-
petent, uncaring management and ineffi-
ciencies in delivering medicine to patients.
The pharmacy service had steadily deteri-
orated to the point that it was “in a perpetu-
al state of failure, failing to provide timely,
quality care to veterans,” Kallio said in a
Feb. 26 email to supervisors. He addressed
his criticisms up the chain of command as
far as Elizabeth Joyce Freeman, director of
the Palo Alto VAHealth Care System.
On April 7, the chief of the pharmacy
service sent Kallio a letter threatening to
suspend him for sending emails “that con-
tained disrespectful and inappropriate state-
ments about your service chief” and others
at the hospital, including leadership of the
Palo Alto VA, the POGO report said. Kallio
defended himself in a letter to superiors
detailing hospital records that showed
patients suffering from “missed doses, late
doses, wrong doses” of medication. He was
suspended for two weeks in June.
On June 20, the day before his suspension
was to end, Freeman placed Kallio on paid
leave pending an investigation. Another VA
Report: Retaliation by supervisors common at VA
On April 7,the chief of the pharmacy service sent Stuart Kallio a letter threatening to suspend
him for sending emails ‘that contained disrespectful and inappropriate statements about
your service chief’ and others at the hospital, including leadership of the Palo Alto VA.

official ordered Kallio not to discuss the case outside the
VA, the report said.
This month, Freeman became interim director of the VA’s
troubled Southwest Health Care Network based in Arizona.
The former director there retired after reports this spring
that dozens of patients have died while awaiting treatment
at the Phoenix VAhospital.
POGO’s Brian said an order attempting to gag Kallio,
coupled with expansion of Freeman’s responsibilities,
“seem directly at odds” with a message Acting VASecretary
Gibson has repeated in recent weeks emphasizing the
importance of whistleblower protection.
Aspokesman for Gibson said Monday that the VAthanks
POGO “for bringing these important claims to light.” The
spokesman, Drew Brookie, encouraged the group to pro-
vide relevant information to the VA’s Office of Inspector
General and Office of Special Counsel “so there can be
appropriate follow-up.”
The VA’s acting inspector general, Richard Griffin, has
issued a subpoena demanding that POGO turn over a list of
whistleblowers who filed complaints through its website,
which is operated jointly with the Iraq and Afghanistan
Veterans of America. The groups have refused, saying
release of the names would violate the promise they made
to whistleblowers.
Griffin’s office said last week it is investigating possi-
ble wrongdoing at 87 VAmedical facilities nationwide, up
from 69 last month.

Botox maker Allergan will cut about 13
percent of its workforce as part of a push to
become more efficient while it fights a hos-
tile takeover bid from Valeant
The Irvine, California, company said
Monday it plans to trim about 1,500
employees and around 250 vacant positions
as it restructures to focus on its “highest
value opportunities.”
Allergan said its restructuring will yield
annual pretax savings of about $475 mil-
lion in 2015. It announced the cuts the same
day it said second-quarter results trumped
analyst expectations, as earnings grew 16
percent to $417.2 million.
“Today’s results demonstrate that we’re
clearly on the right path,” Chairman and
CEO David Pyott told analysts during a con-
ference call. “The actions announced today
will only accelerate our trajectory. ”
Allergan Inc. has rejected several takeover
attempts from Valeant Pharmaceuticals
International Inc. and
activist investor Bill
Ackman’s Pershing
Square Capital
Management. The latest
amounts to about $53 bil-
lion in cash and stock.
Valeant has promised
cost-cutting and sav-
ings of its own if the
two companies com-
bine. Ackman, whose company owns a
9.7 percent stake in Allergan, told CNBC
that shareholders had been asking for
Allergan cost-cutting for some time. He
said the reductions that the company
announced Monday amounted to “cutting
out fat you should have cut out a long
time ago.”
“Allergan can only achieve so much as a
stand-alone company,” he said.
Ackman has lined up nominees for
Allergan’s board, and Pershing Square wants
to hold a special meeting where Allergan
shareholders can have a say in the buyout
bid and on the company’s direction.
Allergan, which also makes the dry-eye
treatment Restasis, has adopted a “poison
pill” measure to block a takeover. Pyott said
Monday that Valeant’s offer was “so far away
from the intrinsic value of this company”
that there was no reason for the drugmakers
to have substantive talks.
Allergan and Valeant have feuded publicly
over the possible takeover since April. In
the latest twist, Valeant said Monday it has
complained to both the Securities and
Exchange Commission and authorities in
the Canadian province of Quebec, where it is
based, that Allergan has been making false
statements about its business even though
Valeant has publicly corrected it.
Valeant said the latest example of these
statements involves the performance of
contact lens maker Bausch + Lomb, which
Valeant acquired last year.
“We can no longer tolerate unjustified
attacks on Valeant’s business and strongly
believe we are obligated to take action to
protect Valeant shareholders from Allergan’s
apparent attempts to mislead investors and
manipulate the market for Valeant stock,”
Valeant Chairman and CEO J. Michael
Pearson said in a statement from the compa-
An Allergan spokesman responded by
email that the company stood by its com-
“We call on Valeant to report complete and
transparent details on its business on an
ongoing basis,” the spokesman said. “At
the end of the day, investors will make their
own decisions.”
The drugmaker also said on Monday that it
raised its forecast for adjusted 2014 earnings
to between $5.74 and $5.80 per share from a
range of $5.64 to $5.73 that it predicted in
May. It expects Botox to deliver net sales
ranging from $2.2 billion to $2.28 billion.
Botox is known best for its ability to
smooth frown lines on aging foreheads, but
it also is approved to treat neck spasms, eye
muscle disorders, migraines and other condi-
Shares of Allergan climbed 2.3 percent, or
$3.90, to $171.30 Monday afternoon,
while U.S.-traded shares of Valeant also were
up 3 percent, or $3.69, to $125.66.

WASHINGTON — Raising beef for
the American dinner table does far
more damage to the environment than
producing pork, poultry, eggs or
dairy, a new study says.
Compared with the other animal
proteins, beef produces five times
more heat-trapping gases per calorie,
puts out six times as much water-pol-
luting nitrogen, takes 11 times more
water for irrigation and uses 28 times
the land, according to the study pub-
lished Monday in the journal
Proceedings of the National Academy
of Sciences.
Cows are not efficient at converting
feed to protein for human consump-
tion, said lead author Gidon Eshel, an
environmental physics professor at
Bard College in New York.
Eshel used U.S. government figures
to calculate air and water emissions
and how much water and land were used
in the lifetime production of beef,
pork, poultry, dairy and eggs.
While other studies have looked at
the issue, this is one of the most com-
prehensive pieces of research quanti-
fying and comparing the U.S. envi-
ronmental costs of different meats and
other animal protein.
A spokesman for the National
Cattlemen’s Beef Association, Chase
Adams, said the study “represents a
gross oversimplification of the com-
plex systems that make up the beef
value chain.”
Adams said that the beef industry
has improved its environmental sus-
tainability in recent years and that the
U.S. produces beef with the lowest
greenhouse gas emissions of any
In the study, pork, poultry, dairy and
eggs all had comparable environmen-
tal footprints, so close there were no
statistically significant differences
among them, Eshel said. But cows
were off-the-chart different. The study
did not look at plants or fish raised for
human consumption.
Cows burp major amounts of
methane, a greenhouse gas that is
dozens of times more potent than car-
bon dioxide. Their digestive system
makes them produce considerably
more methane than pigs, chickens or
turkeys do, Eshel said. The manure
used to grow feed for cows also releas-
es methane, as does their own bodily
Because they are bigger and take
longer to put on weight for meat, cows
eat more food over their lifetimes than
other animals raised for protein.
Nitrogen, from fertilizer runoff, can
harm rivers, lakes and bays, causing
oxygen-depleted “dead zones.” The
use of irrigation water is a major issue
out West when there are droughts, like
the current one in California. So much
land used for farming changes the bio-
diversity of a location, Eshel said.
“It really looks like beef is a lot
worse environmentally than these
other meats,” said Ken Caldeira, an
environmental scientist at the
Carnegie Institution for Science.
Caldeira wasn’t part of this study, but
has a separate study of beef’s green-
house gas footprint around the world,
published this month in the journal
Climatic Change.
Eshel calculates that the average
American who switches from beef to
pork would reduce the equivalent of
1,200 pounds of carbon dioxide a
year, which is about nine days’ worth
of the nation’s per capita greenhouse
gas emissions. The EPAcalculates that
it is the same as the emissions from
61 gallons of gas or what comes out of
the smokestack from burning 580
pounds of coal.
Caldeira said his calculations found
that “eating a pound of beef causes
more greenhouse warming than burn-
ing a gallon of gasoline.”
Even though pigs have the reputa-
tion for being dirty, the data shows
that they “come out pretty clean”
when compared to cows, Eshel said.
Beef pollutes more than
pork, poultry, study says
Law OKs underage wine, beer tasting in colleges
SACRAMENTO — Aspiring brewers and winemakers in
college can legally taste — but not swallow — their prod-
ucts starting winter semester.
Gov. Jerry Brown signed AB1989 on Monday to fix a sit-
uation that prevented some students from graduating in four
The bill’s author Democratic Assemblyman Wesley
Chesbro of Arcata cautions his bill does not condone cam-
pus partying. It only permits for sipping and spitting
despite its “Underage Drinkers” label in records. It also
only extends to students majoring in winemaking and brew-
ery science and not to students looking for fun electives.
Advocates for the bill say tasting alcohol is a crucial com-
ponent to viticulture and brewing education. Eight pro-
grams, including the University of California at Davis and
Fresno State, can remove age restrictions on classes.
Brown signs board changes to Covered California
SACRAMENTO — Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill
aimed at diversifying California’s health exchange board by
expanding the eligibility criteria for members.
The governor’s office announced Monday that he signed
AB972 by Democratic Sen. Norma Torres of Pomona. She
said her bill responds to consumer complaints of long
waits, confusing website materials and low minority enroll-
ment on the Covered California exchange.
The bill broadens the qualifications for the five-member
Covered California board, which is currently dominated
with health care and insurance administrators.
Hopkins pays $190M in
pelvis exam photos settlement
BALTIMORE — A “rogue” gynecologist who used tiny
cameras to secretly record videos and photos of his patients
has forced one of the world’s top medical centers to pay
$190 million to 8,000 women and girls.
Dr. Nikita Levy was fired after 25 years with the Johns
Hopkins Health System in Baltimore in February 2013 after
a female co-worker spotted the pen-like camera he wore
around his neck and alerted authorities.

she noticed how fast the consignment
industry was growing.
“Everything was looking great,” she
said. “Then the same thing occurred.
Kohl’s closed and the traffic stopped
again. The shattering moment for me
was just that.”
Millbrae has had challenges with
drawing in shoppers and community
members are working hard for shops to
gain speed, she said. The city needs a
more diverse group of businesses to see
more economic growth, not just restau-
rants, she said.
“Millbrae has such potential region-
ally and it has all the transportation
elements,” she said. “We’ve got public
transportation knocking on our front
The city needs to build a business des-
tination, she said.
“Not just people who walk by after
lunch,” she said. “They’re going to
come here because it’s a great place for
stuff to be sold.”
In terms of a replacement for Kohl’s ,
a retail store would be perfect, she said.
“I don’t think you’ll get Macy’s or
Bloomingdales because we haven’t cre-
ated an environment for them,” she
said. “It’s a diamond in the rough and
there’s so many opportunities for it.”
The City Council could do a better job
of focusing on the retail elements in the
community, she said. The shops need to
be 12-hour businesses, not just for
shopping at after lunch or dinner.
“It (the city) needs to embrace idea of
all day traffic,” she said. We need more
retailers. If a retailer would come
through, their question would be, ‘how
do I see all day traffic?’ We need a retail
environment where there are shoe
stores. … Our community has to
embrace that is something that’s going
to build longevity and tax dollars into
our community.”
The city is trying to get businesses to
coordinate with each other to improve
the climate, said Mayor Wayne Lee.
“We need to attract more businesses
and hopefully diversify businesses,” he
said. “It depends on the local business-
es taking control of the situation.”
The city does need bigger stores to
anchor smaller businesses, Steffey
“We need to get all of the landlords
together and ask, ‘is your focus to try
to move people out of the downtown
area? Are you focused solely on high
gains and the short term?’” she said.
Still, Steffey is grateful for her own
landlords, who have been wonderful,
she said. The city does need to do a bet-
ter job of bringing in more customers,
she said.
“We need to draw a lot of clients
down off the hill who feel they have
been left out of a community that used
to be very important to them,” she
said. “They want diversity again. The
City Council does need to take an
active role.”

experiences including five-month wait-
ing periods for simple foot issues and
blatant neglect by the administration

direct retaliation against them for filing
El Granada resident Charlie Hall
claimed the San Bruno VA Outpatient
Clinic gave him the runaround after the
Palo Alto VAoffices were billed $3,800,
but then went after him because the VA
hadn’t paid them.
“I can’t get assistance on either end
of this thing,” Hall said.
Other veterans, such as Pacific
Heights resident Juan Dianda, contend-
ed that the VA’s system was too reliant
on pharmaceuticals, an issue that had
been brought up with a number of veter-
an officials in Congress who aim to
limit the amount of psychotropic and
opiate drugs given to veterans.
But Bonnie Graham, director of the
San Francisco VAMedical Center, said
she didn’t know about any retaliation or
specific issues of doctors over-prescrib-
ing pain killers.
“We have people who will look into
this,” said Graham. “There’s a lot of dif-
ferent factors that go into each claim.”
Last week, Speier went to the VAPalo
Alto Health Care System and said she
found similarities in the problems with
poor waiting periods, especially in
dealing with orthopedic claims.
One veteran claimed he had to wait
five months to see a foot specialist
because the VA only has one doctor
available once a month to deal with
foot and ankle injuries due to a lack of
Baby boomers from the Vietnam War
are getting older, Speier said, and the
demand should be getting higher and
more orthopedic specialists should be
coming in more frequently.
“We knew about this problem as far
back as 2005,” Speier said. “We have to
take responsibility now.”
Both the congresswoman and Graham
agreed that the solutions to fix the VA
are not simple and there is a wide
breadth of problems that would need to
be addressed.
“The software that these people are
using is not acceptable,” said Speier,
adding that salary gaps for public and
private doctors have also created a
shortage at the VA.
“We’re always getting veteran input
by having veterans on our teams,”
Graham said. “We have the issues nar-
rowed down to what people want, but
this is a continuous process of

to respond in writing within 90 days.
According to the summary, the agencies
and individuals targeted were pretty
good at getting back to the jury; they
just didn’t always agree with the sugges-
The 2012-13 jury tackled a wide
variety of subjects, ranging from
water recycling by cities and multi-
lingual access by law enforcement to
the county’s unfunded liabilities and
structural deficit and the oversight of
special districts.
In some case, the recommendations
were not applicable, according to the
replies. For example, San Mateo
County said it has no areas consistent
with the recycled water study and several
cities said they had no water treatment
facility to support such a program.
Providing smartphones to police offi-
cers to access free translation services
isn’t fiscally reasonable for some juris-
dictions while others say they already
use in-car computers.
The county implemented some
changes to its budget documents to
improve transparency and clarity for the
public at the request of the grand jury.
But when it came to urging the Local
Agency Formation Commission to
review the San Mateo County Mosquito
and Vector Control District, it replied
there is no jurisdiction. From that same
report evaluating special district over-
sight — particularly that district fol-
lowing a half-million dollar embezzle-
ment — the mosquito district said it had
already implemented changes to how
the manager is evaluated, created new
committees and planned to contract out
for human resources support.
The sitting civil grand jury always
generates an annual report on the previ-
ous year’s efforts but the document
released yesterday includes an expanded
format. The jury also asks that next
panel issue its summary of reports and
responses by the end of January.

TUESDAY, JULY 22, 2014
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — You’ll face opposition if
you voice your opinion. There is someone in your circle
who may have some helpful advice. Listen to it, but
make choices based on your needs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Social media or a vocational
seminar could offer valuable insight regarding future
job prospects. Think about what you’re most interested
in, do your research and make an informed decision.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Physical activity will
be challenging but rewarding. You can improve your
self-image and make new friends. Your confidence and
popularity are on the rise. Enjoy close encounters.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Give someone you are
questioning the benefit of the doubt. An honest mistake
is not worth the loss of a solid friendship. Don’t let
disappointment lead to bitterness or resentment.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Make a point to learn
something new. Whether you comb the Internet, join
a discussion group or do some research at your local
library, there are plenty of interesting topics to discover.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Although you
may be inclined to do some shopping for your own
enjoyment, this is not a good time to lend money or
possessions to others. An interesting investment will
increase your income.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t give in to
pressure. Make your decisions based on facts. Take
your time and wait until you are absolutely sure that
you’re making the best choice.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You may
be tempted to get involved in an unusual or
questionable activity. Don’t let intrigue and
adventure entice you to participate in a secret
endeavor. Focus on structured activities.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — The attention you offer
a younger person will be appreciated. If you are patient
and understanding, your compassion and caring will
help you form a close bond and a new ally.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Don’t let an emotional
situation ruin your day or a relationship with someone
special. Honesty and an emphasis on teamwork will
help smooth things over.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — There is someone you
can’t stop thinking about. Get in touch with your loved
one, share your feelings and plan something special to
satisfy your romantic mood.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Be aware of a financial
or professional opportunity that comes your way.
Network with peers to discover career options. Joint
ventures must be handled cautiously.

C-7, C-10, C-16, C-20, C-34, C-36, C-38, C-42, C-43, and/or C-46 licenses (“MEP
Subcontractors”), listed by bidders for District projects going out for bid after August 1,
2014 and involving a projected expenditure of $1 million or more that are eligible for
state bond funding, must be prequalified prior to being listed as a subcontractor by a
bidder submitting a bid on the Project.
2. Any subcontractor interested in being listed as a MEP Subcontractor by prime
contractors bidding on District projects must submit fully completed and sealed District
prequalification forms and financial information (“Prequalification Package”) to the
District. Prequalification Packages will be received before 2:00 p.m. on August 12,
2014, at the Burlingame School District, 1825 Trousdale Drive, Burlingame, CA
94010 at or after which time the Prequalification Packages will be opened and the
names of subcontractors applying for prequalification status shall be publicly read
3. All Prequalification Packages shall be on the forms provided by the District.
Prequalification forms are available for pick-up at the Burlingame School District, 1825

4. To prequalify, a subcontractor is required, in addition to other criteria, to possess one
or more of the aforementioned State of California Contractor Licenses, which must
remain active and in good standing throughout the term of the District project.
5. If a subcontractor performs work for a District project, the subcontractor shall pay all
workers on all work performed pursuant to a contract for the Project not less than the
general prevailing rate of per diem wages and the general prevailing rate for holiday
and overtime work as determined by the Director of the Department of Industrial
Relations, State of California, for the type of work performed and the locality in which
the work is to be performed within the boundaries of the District, pursuant to sections

6. The Prequalification Packages submitted by subcontractors are not public records and
are not open to public inspection. All information provided will be kept confidential to
the extent permitted by law. The contents may be disclosed to third parties for
purpose of verification, or investigation of substantial allegations, or in the appeal
process, however. State law requires that the names of subcontractors applying for
prequalification status shall be public records subject to disclosure.
7. A subcontractor may be denied prequalification status for either omission of requested
information or falsification of information.

California law requires that contractors
taking jobs that total $500 or more (labor
or materials) be licensed by the Contrac-
tor’s State License Board. State law also
requires that contractors include their li-
cense number in their advertising. You
can check the status of your licensed
contractor at www.cslb.ca.gov or 800-

jobs that total less than $500 must state
in their advertisements that they are not
licensed by the Contractors State Li-
cense Board.
