LOS ANGELES — The sprin-
klers outside the California’s state
Capitol are off and the lawn is
withering, the lemon- and cucum-
ber-infused “water stations” at the
state pension building are gone,
and prison inmates are taking
shorter showers while campers at
some popular parks can’t take
them at all.
In ways big and small, the state
government is conserving water
to try to meet Gov. Jerry Brown’s
request that everyone — from resi-
dents to businesses to state agen-
cies — reduce their use by 20 per-
Still, six months after Brown
declared a water emergency, few
state agencies know whether their
conservation efforts are meeting
the mark. They are not required to
compare water consumption this
year to last, and few have, the
Associated Press found.
The AP asked the 11 agencies or
departments that use the most
water how their consumption over
the first half of this year compared
to the same period in 2013.
Only four could provide compre-
hensive data for water use in build-
ings they manage, in some cases
taking several weeks to produce

Jail chaplain learns humility through work
Jail chaplain Martin Schurr works with inmates as part of his
work with St.Vincent de Paul’s Restorative Justice Ministry.
By Angela Swartz
Helping to heal those incarcerated,
their families and others affected by
crime is all in a day’s work for St.
Vincent de Paul’s Head Jail Chaplain
Martin Schurr, but nonprofits haven’t
always been his line of work.
Schurr, who has been with the
Catholic service organization for 14
years, worked in the corporate world
for 20 years before going to St.
Vincent de Paul and ultimately helped
lead the organization’s Restorative
Justice Ministry group that works to
heal both the victim and offender, to
regain the trust of the community.
More than 50 volunteers offered pas-
toral care in San Mateo County to
3,400 incarcerated men, women and
youth, their families and those affected
by crime. After-care assistance is pro-
vided for those recently released from
incarceration as well.
“I left a six-figure job with bonuses
and cars and traveling the world on
someone else’s dime,” said Schurr, 53.
“I had a good life.”
Schurr, who is married and has two
sons, began to volunteer for St.
Vincent de Paul. ASt. Vincent de Paul
parishioner told him he’d be a great
person to replace him.
“I laughed and said, ‘oh yeah, I’m
going to leave what I’ve got to go to a
nonprofit,’” he said. “They called and I

A new and revived Burlingame
means a revamping for a bar right
off Burlingame Avenue.
With the Burlingame Avenue
Streetscape project, Vinyl Room
at 221 Park Road has decided to do
renovations and took a spin off
the name Vinyl Room for creative
inspiration. In addition, soon-to-
open businesses like the Indian
restaurant and the coffee and wine
bar H29 should draw more cus-
tomers in, so the bar is extending
its hours.
“We’ve been here for eight years
and a lot of stuff needed attention,”
said co-owner Juan Loredo. “We
went with the retro theme because
it’s something different. Everyone
uses reclaimed wood and the rusted
look. I was just kind of tired of
seeing that. I wanted to see some-
thing no one else was doing.”
Renovations by Craig Walters
of C. Walters Design began earlier
this year. The bar facade is padded
in printed canvas that showcases
vinyl records on shelves. Liquor
bottles are placed on a hi-fi cabinet
that sits on wooden hairpin legs.
The bar stools resemble some-
thing that would be on the set of
the show Mad Men. The lounge
area features new booths and metal
hairpin legged tables. An art wall
features 200 wood panels that are
the size of album covers. Other

Is your toaster broken? Microwave on the
fritz? Thinking about taking a trip to the
mall? A group of crafty environmentalists
are planning to empower consumers by hav-
ing them bring in their broken electronics
to learn how to disassemble, troubleshoot
and hopefully repair items instead of throw-
ing them away.
RethinkWaste, in collaboration with
Recology San Mateo County and TechShop
will be holding its first free Fixit Clinic at
the Shoreway Environmental Center in San
Carlos Saturday.
People can bring in non-functioning
items such as laptops, cellphones, DVD
players, small toasters, kids’ remote con-
trol cars, microwaves; basically anything
that has batteries or a cord that plugs in and
can be carried inside, said Monica
Devincenzi, recycling outreach and sustain-
ability manager with the South Bayside
Waste Management Authority, also known
as RethinkWaste.
“The Fixit Clinic is a great opportunity
for people to take a look at what they’ve got
around the house and instead of getting rid
of it or paying to replace it … come and
meet other people, learn how something
works and hopefully be able to repair it,”
Devincenzi said.
The one-day event will be held at the
Shoreway Environmental Center, which is
owned by the SBWMA and receives San
Mateo County’s recyclables, organics and
garbage. Anyone is welcome to join as the
groups hope to encourage the general public
to keep things out of the waste stream,
Devincenzi said.
It has also paired with Fixit Clinic, a
group of engineers dedicated to preserving
what needs not be wasted. Fixit Clinic has
been doing workshop days throughout the
Bay Area and, when the SBWMAheard about
the group, it thought it’d be a great opportu-
nity for the local community, Devincenzi
“From what we’ve heard, these are very
popular and it’s kind of falling on the heels
of the makers movement that’s going on.
And people are into making things and to be
able to create you need to know how to fix
things as well,” Devincenzi said.
TechShop has joined in to help out and
promote the do-it-yourself movement, said
Senior General Manager Raffie Colet.
TechShop offers several community work-
spaces throughout the Bay Area, each full of
$1 million worth of tools such as laser cut-
ters, welding stations, a metal working
shop, a wood shop and design software.
Colet said he hopes Saturday’s clinic will
be the first of many collaborative work-
shops to engage the community through
promoting recycling and reusing.
“We’ll be there to help support the event
as well as helping people gain awareness as
to what their resources are at the TechShop
or even at home,” Colet said. “Just to help
people get excited about, ‘hey you can make
things and create things with materials that
are basically free and around you.’”
Devincenzi said the event is aimed at
helping reduce what could have ended up in a
landfill and empowering consumers by giv-
ing them the ability to save money and
resources through repair.
“We are a disposable society. This is just
trying to help give the general public that
support that they can take something and
open it up and look what’s inside and learn
about what it might take to fix it. It’s not a
guarantee, but a lot of times it’s a very sim-
ple fix if they know how to do that,”
Devincenzi said. “It’s rather than having to
throw it away and going out and spending
money. So by fixing it, you’re saving the
resources it would take to manufacture a new

ers request attendees register ahead of time at

Stolen Toyota driver flees after
hitting Porsche on San Mateo Bridge
The driver and passengers of a stolen car
fled the scene after hitting a Porsche on the
San Mateo-Hayward Bridge Friday morning.
Redwood City California Highway Patrol
officers responded to a call reporting a two-
vehicle hit-and-run collision at 5:12 a.m.,
according to CHP Officer Art Montiel.
A dark 1988 Toyota struck the 1986
Porsche on westbound State Route 92, then
continued driving until it reached Pier 1 just
after the road declines, Montiel said.
The driver and three passengers aban-
doned the car off of the freeway in Foster
City and fled on foot, Montiel said.
A witness said the driver may have been
carrying a handgun, and CHP officers set up
a perimeter and began searching for the sus-
pects with Foster City police officers,
Montiel said.
Officers were unable to locate the suspects
and stopped the search after about an hour,
Montiel said.
An investigation revealed that the Toyota
had been stolen from a home in Redwood
City sometime during the night on
Thursday, Montiel said.

AGoogle Express shopping courier with a
record of theft convictions stole items from
a Daly City Target store while picking up
items purchased through the new delivery
system, according to prosecutors who
charged the woman with four felonies.
Elisa Marie Lassos, 31, of Hayward,
worked for Google Express through subcon-
tractor Adecco. Between March 16 and May
10, prosecutors say she used her access as a
delivery person to pilfer an iPad, Beats by
Dre headphones and other goods from the
special area Target has for Google Express
orders. The loss totaled approximately
Lassos, charged with four counts of
felony theft, pleaded not guilty Friday in
Superior Court and received a Sept. 8 jury
trial date. Each count is in
reference to a trip she
allegedly made to commit
the theft.
At the time of her most
recent arrest, Lassos had
three prior felony convic-
tions, five misdemeanor
convictions and had
spent 16 months in
prison for violating her
probation on drug and theft charges. She
was previously convicted of commercial
burglary, possessing methamphetamine and
having it for sale along with child endan-
According to prosecutors, Lassos had
unsupervised access to items because the
store has a special area for Google Express
orders with self-check out and no video sur-
veillance. Delivery people use a Google
Express card to purchase the items for cus-
tomers of the service but District Attorney
Steve Wagstaffe said Lassos helped herself
to more property that she did not pay for.
A Target security guard noticed missing
property and connected it to Lassos because
the thefts coincided with her trips to the
store, Wagstaffe said.
Google declined to discuss the details of
Lassos’ employment but said an investiga-
tion is underway.
“We work very hard to ensure that every
Google Shopping Express staff member is
delivering the exceptional service that
shoppers expect, and we’re looking into
this incident with our staffing agency, ”
Google said in a prepared statement.
Lassos remains in custody on $50,000
bail. If convicted of the new charges, she
faces up to seven years in prison, Wagstaffe

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal grand jury
on Friday charged a California state senator
with more felonies in addition to the eight
counts he already faced in a sweeping organ-
ized crime and public corruption case cen-
tered in San Francisco’s Chinatown.
A new indictment unsealed in San
Francisco federal court charged Sen. Leland
Yee with racketeering and conspiracy “to
obtain property under the color of official
right.” Those charges are in addition to the
previous bribery, conspiracy and related
Yee pleaded not guilty to the original eight
charges. He will have to enter a plea
Wednesday to the charges in the new indict-
The new accusations allege that San
Francisco Democrat offered to help pass leg-
islation making it harder for professional
football players to obtain workers compen-
sation in California, in
exchange for campaign
contributions from an
unidentified NFL owner.
The new indictment
also accuses Yee of taking
bribes in exchange for
votes in favor of several
bills, including one on
medical marijuana and
another to extend the life
of the California State Athletic Commission.
Also charged with racketeering was
Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow. The grand
jury called a Chinese-American association
that Chow headed, the Ghee Kung Tong, a
racketeering enterprise.
Chow previously pleaded not guilty to
money laundering and other charges.
Yee also is accused of accepting bribes and
attempting to connect an undercover FBI
agent with an arms dealer in exchange for
cash. He has pleaded not guilty.
Acall to Yee’s attorney for comment on the
additional charge was not immediately
returned. An attorney for Chow, Curtis
Briggs, said he was “completely under-
whelmed” by the superseding indictment,
which he said lacked new investigative find-
ings or new accusations.
“It doesn’t hold water, evidenced by the
fact that they could have brought the racket-
eering charge in the first indictment,” Briggs
said. “We believe that he’s innocent, we’re
still very optimistic about his case, and we
look forward to the trial.”
Yee was arrested along with 19 others in
March during coordinated raids throughout
the San Francisco Bay Area.
The arrests were the culmination of an FBI
investigation started in 2006 after Chow left
prison and was elected “dragonhead” of the
Ghee Kung Tong. The FBI says undercover
agents laundered $2.6 million in cash pur-
portedly garnered through illegal bookmak-
ing through the organization.

Commission wants
comments on use of blocked beach
California’s Coastal Commission is seek-

San Francisco Bay Area beach at the center
of a lawsuit over public access.
The commission announced Thursday that
it has opened its website to ask people how
they have used Martin’s Beach in San Mateo
Ajudge is deciding whether Silicon Valley
billionaire Vinod Khosla, who bought a
secluded cove south of Half Moon Bay for
$32.5 million in 2008, is allowed to close
an access road and keep the beach off-lim-

Earlier this month, lawyers on both sides
presented final arguments in the case filed
by the Surfrider Foundation coastal protec-
tion group opposing Khosla’s action.

ASPEN, Colo. — About a dozen
former CIA officials named in a
classified Senate report on decade-
old agency interrogation practices
were notified in recent days that
they would be able to review parts
of the document in a secure room
in suburban Washington after
signing a secrecy agreement.
Then, on Friday, many were told
they would not be able to see it,
after all.
Some of them were furious,
while Democratic Senate aides
were angry that they were given
the chance in the first place.
It’s the latest chapter in the
drama and recriminations that
have been playing out behind the
scenes in connection with what
some call the Senate torture
report, a summary of which is
being declassified and is expected
to be released in the coming
“I am outraged,” said John
Rizzo, one of the former officials
who was offered, and then refused,
a chance to see the summary report
before publication. He retired in
2009 as the CIA’s top lawyer after
playing a key role in the interro-
gation program.
“They are accusing people of
misleading Congress, of mislead-
ing the Justice Department, and
they never even asked to talk to
us,” he said. “And now they won’t
let us read the report before it is
made public.”
The 6,300-page report, along
with a CIArebuttal, represents the
most detailed accounting to date of
a set of bitterly controversial
interrogation, rendition and
detention practices the CIAcarried
out in the years after the Sept. 11
attacks — practices many
Americans now consider to have
been immoral or illegal.
President Barack Obama
stopped the practices when he
took office, but he decided against
a “truth commission” to examine
what happened. Criminal investi-
gations conducted in secret result-
ed on no charges.
Advocacy groups say the Senate
report’s 600-page executive sum-
mary, which is to be released
along with a CIA response and a
minority dissent, will be the last
chance for public accountability.
For months, the former officials
who are implicated in the report
have strategized about how to
rebut it.
Former CIA officials can’t see ‘torture’ report
WASHINGTON — For years,
President Barack Obama railed
against the surge of unlimited
spending flowing into American
political campaigns, arguing that
average voters were being shut
out of a secretive system that lets
special interests bankroll elec-
Now, as Obama enthusiastically
raises money for Democratic
super PACs, he’s embracing some
of the same secretive elements of
that system, drawing charges of
hypocrisy from good-governance
advocates who say the public
deserves to know what Obama’s
saying and to whom he’s saying
it when donors pay for a few min-
utes with the president.
After initially shunning super
PACs, Obama in 2012 allowed his
top officials to help raise money
for the super PAC working to re-
elect him, but his campaign
promised to still “lead the way”
on campaign transparency and
reform. Obama took another
major step toward embracing
super PACs this year by agreeing
to appear personally at fundrais-
ers for Democratic super PACs.

WASHINGTON — More families
with higher incomes could claim
the popular child tax credit under a
bill that won approval Friday in
the House. But in a dispute that
divides Republicans and
Democrats, millions of the poor-
est low-income families would
still lose the credit in 2018, when
enhancements championed by
President Barack Obama are set to
The bill would gradually boost
the amount of the $1,000-per-
child tax credit by tying it to infla-
tion, so it would go up as con-
sumer prices rise. It also aims to
make a dent in illegal immigration
by prohibiting people without
Social Security numbers from
claiming a portion of the credit
reserved for low-income families.
With nearly all Republicans vot-
ing in favor and most Democrats
opposed, the bill cleared the
House by a vote of 237-173. The
White House threatened to veto
the bill, though the Democratic-
controlled Senate is unlikely to
pass it.
About 37 million taxpayers
claimed the credit in 2012, reduc-

Palestinians close the main road between Bethlehem and Hebron during

with Israeli troops,in Beit Ommar town north of West Bank city of Hebron.
By Karin Laub and Ian Deitch
JERUSALEM — Israel-Hamas
fighting looked headed for escala-
tion after U.S. Secretary of State
John Kerry failed Friday to broker a
weeklong truce as a first step toward
a broader deal and Israel’s defense
minister warned Israel might soon
expand its Gaza ground operation
Hours after the U.S.-led efforts
stalled, the two sides agreed to a
12-hour humanitarian cease-fire to
begin Saturday. However, the tem-
porary lull was unlikely to change
the trajectory of the current hostili-
ties amid ominous signs that the
Gaza war is spilling over into the
West Bank.
In a “Day of Rage,” Palestinians
across the territory, which had been
relatively calm for years, staged
protests against Israel’s Gaza oper-
ation and the rising casualty toll
there. In the West Bank, at least six
Palestinians were killed by Israeli
fire, hospital officials said.
The latest diplomatic setbacks,
after several days of high-level
diplomacy in the region, signaled
that both sides are digging in and
that the fighting in Gaza is likely
to drag on.
Israel wants more time to destroy
Hamas military tunnels and rocket
launching sites in Gaza, while the
territory’s Hamas rulers want inter-
national guarantees that a Gaza
border blockade will be lifted
before they cease fire.
The Israeli military said in a
statement that Saturday’s 12-hour
pause in fighting would start at 8
a.m. But it warned that the military
“shall respond if terrorists choose
to exploit” the lull to attack Israeli
troops “or fire at Israeli civilians.”
The military also said that “opera-
tional activities to locate and neu-
tralize tunnels in the Gaza Strip
will continue.”
A Hamas spokesman, Sami Abu
Zuhri, said earlier Friday that the
group had agreed to the 12-hour
lull, intended to allow civilians to
receive aid and evacuate to safer
Civilians on both sides have
been hardest hit over the past 18
In Gaza, Israeli airstrikes and
tank shelling have killed more
than 860 Palestinians, wounded
more than 5,700, displaced tens of
thousands and destroyed hundreds

Migrants: Obama urges
Latin leaders,GOP to help
WASHINGTON — Pressing for swift action, President
Barack Obama on Friday urged Central American presidents
and congressional Republicans to help ease the influx of
minors and migrant families crossing the southwest border
of the U.S.
He emphasized to the regional leaders that despite U.S.
compassion for migrant children, those who do not have a
proper claim to remain in the U.S. will be turned back.
While citing progress in stemming the flow, Obama called
on House Republicans to act urgently on his request for
emergency spending. With one week left before Congress’
August recess, Republicans on Friday were trying to unite
behind a plan that would spend about one-fourth of the
amount in Obama’s proposal.
“It is my hope that Speaker Boehner and House
Republicans will not leave town for the month of August for
their vacations without doing something to help solve this
problem,” Obama said after meeting with Vice President Joe
Biden and the presidents of Guatemala, Honduras and El
Salvador. “We need action and less talk.”
Obama played down a proposed pilot program that his
administration is considering that would give refugee status
to young people from Honduras. White House officials said
the plan, which could be expanded to Guatemala and El
Salvador, would involve screening youths in their home
countries to determine whether they qualify for refugee sta-
Obama said such an effort would affect only a small num-
ber of asylum seekers.
U.S.: Russia is firing across border into Ukraine
KIEV, Ukraine — Russia is launching artillery attacks
from its soil on Ukrainian troops and preparing to move
heavier weaponry across the border, the U.S. and Ukraine
charged Friday in what appeared to be an ominous escala-
tion of the crisis.
Russia accused Washington of lying and charged Ukraine
with firing across the border on a Russian village. It also
toughened its economic measures against Ukraine by ban-
ning dairy imports.
Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for Ukraine’s National
Security and Defense Council, said five salvos of heavy
rockets were fired across the border near the town of
Kolesnikov in the Luhansk region in the country’s east. A
border crossing point near Marynovka was fired on twice
with mortars, also from the Russian side, while Ukrainian
forces shot down three Russian drones, Lysenko said.
If true, the allegations mean Moscow is playing a more
direct role in the fighting than it has been accused of up to
now — a dangerous turn in what is already the gravest crisis
between Russia and the West since the end of the Cold War.

Drought prompts
Redwood City park water shutoffs
The statewide drought is prompting Redwood City to shut
off water features in four parks at the beginning of next
Beginning Aug. 1, the water at Stafford, Stulsaft, Spinas
and Fleishman parks will be turned off until the State Water
Resources Control Board cancels its directive to halt foun-
tains using potable water.
Each of the spray features at the affected parks can use up
to 200 gallons of water daily depending on use, according to
the Redwood City Parks, Recreation and Community
Services Department.
The drought has also forced water changes and closures in
other parts of the county. For instance, Memorial Park
camping was first stopped for the month of June and later
extended to the entire season through October.
In Redwood City, recycled water is used on all street medi-
ans and staff is currently renovating irrigation systems
from traditional fixed spray heads with slow application rate
stream rotors. The city has also converted plants to
drought-resistant species and installed “smart” irrigation
controllers in all of the large parks and many of the smaller
ones. These irrigators automatically control water flow
based on weather conditions and shut down the system if a
line breaks.

Vet with PTSD gets time served for assault
A 25-year-old Woodside military veteran committed to a
state mental hospital after his arrest for assaulting his
cousin with a shovel was sentenced
Friday to a year in jail but already has 16
months worth of credit.
A judge also reduced Milo McIntosh
Imrie’s felony assault charge to a misde-
meanor. He was given three years proba-
Imrie was arrested Dec. 12, 2012, after
threatening his 22-year-old cousin with a
gasoline can and claims he planned to
kill him and himself through either fire or
the use of a knife. The cousin took a butcher block of knives
from the kitchen and threw it on the roof but, when his back
was turned, Imrie struck him in the back with the shovel and
fled, according to prosecutors.
Deputies found Imrie at the nearby Menlo Country Club
on Woodside Road where he reportedly resisted arrest and
tried grabbing a deputy’s gun. He was placed on a psychi-
atric hold but, while being transported to jail the next day,
he ran from the patrol car when its door was open.
Before he could be tried, Imrie’s was declared incompetent
and sent to Napa State Hospital. Imrie returned to San Mateo
County last summer after doctors found him fit again and
pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. He changed his
plea in May.
Former church usher imprisoned for molesting girl
The former Daly City church who pleaded no contest to
inappropriately touching two young girls on separate occa-
sions was sentenced Friday to eight years
in prison and ordered to register as a sex
offender for life.
Julian Lopez, 69, has credit of 194
days against the term and must serve 85
percent of the remainder.
In 2008, Lopez served at Ministerio
Mundial in Daly City when a teen says
that, when she was 10, he approached her
upstairs where she was doing homework
and both kissed and fondled her. The girl
said Lopez threatened to harm her parents if she told but she
informed her mother who contacted the church pastor. The
pastor called a church meeting at which Lopez reportedly
confessed and asked forgiveness from some members of the
congregation, according to prosecutors.
Lopez was removed as an usher but not the church.
Prosecutors said the girl brought the accusations to police
now after having trouble attending the same church as her
alleged abuser. The subsequent investigation led to another
reported victim who said around the same time in 2008,
when she was 13, Lopez also grabbed her twice and touched
her inappropriately.
Had Lopez gone to a jury trial, he faced a life sentence if
convicted because of the multiple victim allegation.
Designer: Bay Bridge bolts don’t need replacing
The chief designer of the new, $6.4 billion eastern span
of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge says more than
2,000 bolts and rods on the span that have been called into
question are safe and can remain in place.
The bolts and rods came under scrutiny after 32 other bolts
cracked when they were tightened last year, threatening to
delay the span’s opening.
But bridge designer Marwan Nader told bridge oversight
officials at a meeting Thursday that the other 2,200 bolts
and rods on the span are likely to be more corrosion-resist-
ant than the 32 that failed.

Responding to
‘Developers’ disease’
In response to Tom and Sandy
Hodges’ letter “Developers’ disease
spoils San Carlos” in the July 25 edi-
tion of the Daily Journal, they need
to look forward, not backward. San
Carlos and other Mid-Peninsula cities
have not been “quaint family towns”
for 20 years. Developers build to fill a
need. No need, no profit, no develop-
Sustainable San Mateo County
(hardly a developer’s shill) showed in

that growth on the Peninsula was pri-
marily driven by live births. We have
seen the enemy and it is us. I would
hope Tom and I will both live well
into our 90s and I would like my chil-
dren and grandchildren to be able to
live in San Carlos as I have for 30
As for the traffic issue on Holly
Street, it is and always has been a
major arterial and anyone who buys a
home on that stretch knows it. The
plan to widen Holly goes all the way
back before the grade separation proj-
ect more than 20 years ago.
Tom and Sandy also need to get
their facts right. Holly does not
reduce to two lanes at the railway
underpass. It is four full traffic lanes
and two turning lanes, which is a
total of six lanes. People who buy
homes next to fire stations can’t com-
plain about a siren at 5 a.m.; people
who buy next to schools can’t com-
plain about children playing or com-
ing and going; people who buy next
to a church cannot complain about
singing on Sunday. We are an urban
town — a city — and we need to look
forward to plan the future rather than
lament the past.

exacerbating drought
Back in the late ’70s and early
’80s, my husband and I were a young
couple trying to buy our first home.
We were trying to build a home in
Half Moon Bay on an empty lot my
family owned. But guess what? At the
time we were put on a waiting list
because there was a moratorium on
building permits being issued because
of a lack of water resources at the
time. Mind you, we were only build-
ing one single-family dwelling. We
never did move to Half Moon Bay and
ended up buying a home in San Mateo
and have been here ever since.
For cities to build, build, build
without taking into consideration
how our water resources are about to
dangle over a cliff is irresponsible
and shows a complete disregard for

The economy is at full speed?
There are more taxes, more expens-
es, salaries in the public sector are
going up again and City Manager
Marcia Raines in Millbrae is getting
a whopping $43,000 raise and anoth-
er $20,00 bonus — just for showing
up. Life is good.
On the other hand, we might col-
lapse into a recession and more peo-
ple are on food stamps, support,
housing and freebies than ever
before. Fewer people in the workforce
are paying taxes. There are more
fines, fees and taxes, restrictions and
companies leaving the country. We
just cannot help ourselves can we?
Does anybody remember 2008 or
2001 for that matter? Does anybody
care? Take it from me, you will when
the house of cards aka the stock mar-
ket starts rumbling again because it
was built with spit and flywork.
Exciting times are ahead.

The Oregonian, Portland, Oregon
ying in the digital age means
leaving two worlds instead
of one.
One is the physical world, where
your body resides. The other is the
online world, where your virtual self
exists. When you die, your loved ones
become responsible for both — yet
they have very few tools to take prop-
er care of the online “you.”
This is a growing problem nation-
ally and in Oregon, as older citizens
become more Internet-savvy and peo-
ple of all ages conduct more of their
personal and financial business
online. Oregon lawmakers should be
prepared to tackle this issue in 2015,
with help from privacy advocates and
estate attorneys: Our laws are ill-
equipped to deal with the tricky reali-
ty of gaining access to others’
Facebook accounts, family photos
stored in the cloud, and even pass-
word-protected phones.
Last week, a leading group of
lawyers recommended that states
adopt several proposals to make it
easier for surviving family members
and executors of estates to gain access
to your digital assets when you die.
This group, known as the Uniform
Law Commission, says electronic
documents should be treated much like
paper documents in a file cabinet. In
most cases, a surviving loved one or
executor should get easy access with-
out having to petition a judge or jump
through months of hoops.
Same goes for photos and files that
might be stored online: Unless the
person specified otherwise in a will,
trust or user opt-in agreement, that
person’s digital assets should be as
accessible as their physical property,
the group says.
“Technology is creating these
assets on a daily basis, and the law is
woefully behind,” said former state
lawmaker Lane Shetterly, an Oregon
attorney who served on the work-
group that hammered out the recom-
mendations. The group’s intent is to
establish good public policy around
better access, he explained, while
also carving out ways for people to
protect their online privacy, even in
“This is a balancing act,” Shetterly
told The Oregonian editorial board on
Digital privacy is emerging as a hot
topic for the 2015 legislative ses-
sion, and dealing with the digital
assets of a deceased person is likely
to be part of the mix. Oregon lawmak-
ers may be surprised to discover that
many of the same Internet companies
that seem awfully casual about users’
privacy are often the most reluctant to
share account information with sur-
viving loved ones, both because of
company policies and competing fed-
eral laws.
Oregonians may find themselves
debating surreal questions such as:
How can we keep a virtual self out of
legal purgatory? How should we define
a good digital death?
This would have sounded like gib-
berish five years ago. Now, it’s a natu-
ral extension of living with our heads
— and a good part of our souls — in
the digital cloud.
Inheritance of online accounts after death
ne never knows when an opportunity will present
itself. Sometimes it falls in one’s lap, other
times, it takes scratching and clawing so that
“luck is what happens when preparation meets opportuni-
ty” holds true. Yet at other times, one has to create one’s
own opportunity like Hannibal, who before crossing the
Alps defiantly declared, “I will either find a way, or make
Nevertheless, whether it’s falling into one’s lap, or
built by one’s self, the key factor is recognizing that an
opportunity exists. When I was asked to write a regular
column, I said yes because I recognized that it was an
opportunity for an alternative voice to be heard in San
Mateo County. And, the chance to take on another oppor-
tunity is why this column will be my last, as well.
Because of one of my earlier columns, I’m about to
embark on a new adventure that will mean I won’t be able
to write for this newspaper for a while. But that doesn’t
mean that I will stop advocating for transparent govern-
ment, growth, opportunity and
prosperity for all. Readers will
be hearing more about this from
me in the coming weeks, but in
a different forum.
Before I go, I want to thank
Jon Mays, the editor of this
newspaper, for giving me the
opportunity to write on a regu-
lar basis. The Daily Journal is
true treasure, and we here in San
Mateo County are lucky it
exists. The coverage of local
issues is outstanding, particu-
larly the in-depth coverage of
otherwise overlooked political
races. The question-and-answer sessions with local candi-
dates are themselves the mark of a publication committed
to the community it serves.
I also want to thank you, my readers, who have engaged
with me online, in letters to the editor and in conversa-
tions on the street. It’s a never-ending source of wonder
when strangers in a restaurant, church or the street come
up and say that they read this column and that they agree
or disagree with me. It’s a privilege to have written some-
thing that has captured your imagination, ideas and feel-
ings, and I’m honored that you would seek me out to say
that I’m right (or wrong).
If there is one thing that writing this column has taught
me, it’s that people in our county are hungry for a voice
that represents them, their hopes and their dreams for
their families and future. They’re tired of the one-size-fits-
all, liberal-progressive mantra that shuts off principled
debate and marginalizes them with a dismissive wave.
Moreover, they are really tired of the old, white,
Democrat politicians that have a stranglehold on power.
In a trenchant analysis of California politics, Politico
pointed out Sunday that the ruling Democrat elite are, to
put it mildly, out of touch with the experience of average
At 81, U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., is the
fourth wealthiest U.S. senator with assets over $68 mil-
lion. Her colleague, U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., a
comparative youth at 73, is herself is a millionaire. U.S.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, the U.S. House
minority leader, is 74, and with $94 million in assets,
worth more than Sen. Feinstein.
Gov. Jerry Brown is 76, and holds the office he first won
in 1974 in an era before most Californians were born.
Even the state Democratic Party chair gets in on the act as
John Burton, 81, was first elected to the state Assembly in
Soon the old, out-of-touch Democrats will pass from the
scene. That will give an opportunity for a new breed of
center-right leaders some dub “conservatarian” to take
center stage. These new leaders are especially relevant
here in Silicon Valley where Libertarian ideas run deep.
Last week, San Francisco hosted San Mateo County’s
Lincoln Labs’ Reboot conference and hackathon, a con-
vergence of tech, Libertarian and conservative coders,
activists and thinkers that generated a nationwide buzz.
For California, this conclave of conservatarians repre-
sents the new face of the Republican Party, an opportunity
to attract those turned off by the Democrat elite’s age, 1-
percent wealth and lack of ethnic diversity.
So, opportunities abound, not only for me but also for
those of you who are generally center-right and are glad

Big movers
By Ken Sweet
NEW YORK — Investors got some
bad news about the American shopper
on Friday, driving down stocks and
sending the Dow Jones industrial aver-
age to a loss for the week.
Two major U.S. companies — the
retail giant Amazon and the credit card
processor Visa — both said that the sec-
ond half of the year was looking more
troubled than originally expected. The
cautious outlook from two companies
so heavily exposed to consumer spend-
ing spooked investors, causing the
stock market to fall at the open and
remain lower throughout the day.
“Visa put a lot of caution into the mar-
ket this morning,” said Quincy Krosby,
a market strategist at Prudential
The Dow dropped 123.23 points, or
0.7 percent, to 16,960.57. It’s the first
time the Dow has closed below the psy-
chologically notable 17,000-point
mark since July 9.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 fell 9.64
points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,978.34 and
the Nasdaq composite fell 22.54 points,
or 0.5 percent, to 4,449.56.
With Friday’s selling, the Dow fell
0.8 percent this week. The S&P 500
closed basically unchanged and the
Nasdaq rose 0.4 percent this week.
Visa was the biggest decliner among
the blue chips, falling $7.97, or 3.6
percent, to $214.77. The credit card
processor reported an 11 percent rise in
quarterly profit but cut its full-year fore-
cast on concerns about growth over-
Because the Dow is a price-weighted
index, and Visa is the most expensive
stock in the Dow, Visa was having an
outsized impact on it. Roughly 60
points of the Dow’s decline can be
attributed to Visa.
Investors have closely watched Visa
ever since the company went public in
2008. Credit cards that use Visa’s pay-
ment system are in nearly person’s
pocket, and each time a consumer buys a
product with a Visa card the company
takes a small percentage.
To see Visa give a cautious outlook is
worrisome, Krosby said.
“Visa represents the consumer and the
consumer is one of the most important
pieces for the future of this economic
recovery,” she said.
Amazon’s quarterly results didn’t help
boost investor sentiment either.
Amazon’s stock slumped 10 percent
after the online retail giant late
Thursday posted a much wider loss than
analysts had forecast, hit by expenses.
The Seattle-based company is focused
on spending the money it makes to
expand into new areas and products,
including a smartphone, the Fire, which
starts selling Friday.
Amazon fell $36.60 to close at
$324.01, the biggest decliner in the
S&P 500 index.
Investors retreated from riskier stocks
and moved into traditional havens at
times of uncertainty: bonds and gold.
The yield on the 10-year Treasury note
eased to 2.47 percent from 2.50 percent
late Thursday as demand for the govern-
ment bond rose. Gold climbed $12.50,
or 1 percent, to $1,303.30 an ounce
Despite the disappointing news from
those consumer-focused companies,
corporate earnings from the latest quar-
ter have been solid. Of the 230 compa-
nies that have reported so far, 76 per-
cent have beaten profit expectations and
67 percent have beaten sales expecta-
tions, according to FactSet. So far the
S&P 500 is averaging a 6.7 percent
earnings growth this quarter compared
to a year ago. Investors had expected
earnings to be up 4.9 percent when the
results started to roll in at the beginning
of July.
Even with Friday’s declines, the stock
market remains near all-time highs, and
the S&P 500 closed at a record
Thursday. .
That made some investors cautious.
“I continue to see the level of compla-
cency in the (stock) market to be
unnerving,” Scott Clemons, chief
investment strategist at Brown Brothers
Harriman, which manages $25 billion
in assets for private investors.
Consumer worry drags stocks lower
By Steve Rothwell
A war breaks out between Israel and
Hamas. An airliner is shot out of the sky in
Ukraine. APortuguese bank’s finances look
And the U.S. stock market’s response?
After dipping briefly on the bad news, it
climbs higher.
The market’s resilience this year —
which has pushed it to a series of records
and extended its five-year bull run — is
driven by investors’ optimism over the
growth of the U.S. economy and record
corporate earnings. That helped the mar-
ket overcome its latest dip, on July 17th,
when a passenger jet was shot down in
eastern Ukraine and Israel invaded the
Gaza Strip, raising investor worries that
conflicts around the world could escalate
and destabilize financial markets.
As they have all year, investors respond-
ed by using it as an opportunity to buy
stocks. In fact, they’ve “bought on the dip”
consistently for three years, keeping the
market’s slips from becoming slides. Stock
pullbacks since 2011 have been rare and rel-
atively small, and none have become severe
enough to qualify as a correction, Wall
Street parlance for a fall of 10 percent or
more from a peak.
The lack of a correction for such a long
period is unusual, because the Standard &
Poor’s 500 index experiences such a decline
on average every 18 months, according to
S&P Capital IQ research.
Many investors say that the uninterrupted
rally is justified by the outlook for stocks.
Central banks worldwide have policies in
place aimed at stimulating economic
growth, and U.S. corporate profits continue
to rise, even in the first quarter, when the
economy contracted.
That has driven the S&P 500 up 7 percent
this year, not including reinvested divi-
dends. That’s on top of a 30 percent surge in
2013. The index closed Friday down 0.5
percent at 1,978.34, after closing at a
record 1,987.98 a day earlier.
“The fundamental underpinnings of this
bull market remain very much intact,” says
Katie Nixon, chief investment officer for
wealth management at Northern Trust.
In the U.S., the Federal Reserve has held
short-term interest rates at close to zero for
almost five years, and has bought $3 tril-
lion of bonds to hold down long-term rates.
The Fed has been winding down its stimu-
lus, but a rate increase isn’t expected until at
least 2015.
The European Central Bank in June intro-
duced a raft of unusual measures meant to
revive the eurozone economy by getting
credit flowing to companies. Japan’s cen-
tral bank is also trying to stimulate that
nation’s economy.
While these policies have cut borrowing
costs, they have also reduced the yields on
bonds — and the income they generate for
investors. As a result, investors have shift-
ed their money to other assets, such as
stocks, in the hunt for better income. That
dynamic has supported the rally in stocks.
Utilities, which are regarded by some
investors as a proxy for bonds because they
are relatively stable and pay rich dividends,
are the biggest gainers in the S&P 500 this
year. Their dividend yield — which meas-
ures how much a company pays out in divi-
dends each year compared with its stock
price — stands at 3.5 percent. The yield on
the 10-year government Treasury is 2.5 per-

Amazon worker piloted
drone around Space Needle
SEATTLE — An Amazon.com employee
from out of town was the operator of a drone
that buzzed the Seattle Space Needle this
week, police said.
Witnesses told police they saw the craft fly
back into a fifth-floor room of a nearby
hotel. Police contacted the man and he
admitted operating the drone equipped with a
camera Tuesday. He told authorities he want-
ed to try out the craft he recently purchased at
a hobby shop. Police had received reports
that the drone had crashed into the landmark
of Seattle’s 1962 World’s Fair, but they saw
no evidence of that.
The man showed officers video taken dur-
ing the drone’s flight, police said. It showed
people waving from the Space Needle’s
observation deck but no indication that it
had struck the tower.
The man agreed not to fly his drone in pub-
lic while in town.
Amazon.com Inc. recently asked the
Federal Aviation Administration for permis-
sion to use drones as part of plans to deliver
packages to customers in 30 minutes or less.
The FAA allows hobbyists and model air-
craft makers to fly drones, but commercial
use is mostly banned. Amazon is asking for
an exemption so it can test its drones in the
WASHINGTON — Orders for long-lasting
manufactured goods rebounded in June after
a May decline, helped by a recovery in
demand in a key category that signals busi-
ness investment plans.
Orders for durable goods increased 0.7
percent in June on a seasonally adjusted
basis following a 1 percent decline in May,
the Commerce Department reported Friday.
Acategory viewed as a proxy for business
investment plans rose a solid 1.4 percent,
recovering after a revised 1.2 percent drop
in May. It was the best showing since orders
in this core capital goods category rose 4.7
percent in March.
The strength last month came from solid
gains in demand for commercial aircraft and
machinery. Analysts expect economic
activity will strengthen in the second half
of the year, helped by stronger factory pro-
The 0.7 percent overall increase was in
line with economists’ expectations and
pushed total orders to $239.9 billion. So far
this year, orders are up 3.5 percent over the
same period last year.
Analysts were encouraged by the solid
rebound in June, saying it should set the
stage for further growth in coming months.
“June’s strong orders data and other sur-
vey evidence suggest that business invest-
ment will continue to grow at a decent rate
in the second half of the year,” said Paul
Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital
Economics. He said he expects growth
would rebound to 3.2 percent in the April-
June quarter.
Demand for transportation products rose
0.6 percent, reflecting a big 8.2 percent
gain in orders for commercial aircraft which
offset a 2.1 percent drop in demand for
motor vehicles. The drop in auto demand
was expected to be temporary given strong
sales of new cars this year.
Orders for machinery rose 2.4 percent
while demand for primary metals such as
steel increased 0.9 percent.

DETROIT — The U.S. government’s
highway safety agency has opened a for-
mal investigation into air bag failures in
some Chevrolet Impala full-size cars made
by General Motors.
The National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration said Friday it began the
probe after receiving a petition from
Donald Friedman of Xprts LLC, a Santa
Barbara, California, company that exam-
ines crashes.
Friedman examined an April 2011 car
crash in Hidalgo County, Texas, that
severely injured an elderly man named
Roberto Martinez. His wife Aurora was
driving their 2008 Impala when it was hit
by an SUV and forced into a concrete high-
way divider and a fixed barrier in front of
the car. The passenger air bags didn’t
deploy, and Roberto suffered permanent
brain injuries, according to a lawsuit filed
by the couple against GM. He died about 10
months later.
Friedman alleges that because Roberto
Martinez was bounced around during the
incident, the weight sensor in the passen-
ger seat misread his weight and didn’t fire
the air bag. The air bag is supposed to
inflate for anyone other than a child or
small adult.

The San Bruno boys are at it again.
The San Bruno Colt League All-Stars have
surged into the third tier of the postseason.
Advancing through the Peninsula Colt
League Section Tournament and the
Northern California Super Region
Tournament, San Bruno begins play in the
West Zone Tournament Saturday at San Jose
PAL Stadium.
Comprised mostly of players from
Capuchino — but also with some West
Catholic Athletic League up-and-comers on
the roster — the San Bruno All-Stars had
their backs up against the wall in Super
Region play after dropping the third game
of the double-elimination tournament 11-5
to the Campbell Red Sox.
But San Bruno won three straight to cap-
ture the Region title, outscoring its oppo-
nents 29-7 over the final three games,
including back-to-back victories against
the Red Sox in the championship-round
rematch July 21 and 22.
“Everyone is clicking and hitting the
ball,” San Bruno manager Zach Dornell
said. “Our team is basically one person.
There’s not one person that does things on
their own. … They are a good group of
Dornell is in his fourth year at the helm of
the All-Stars, having served in alternate
years going back to 2005. This is the first
time one of Dornell’s teams has advanced to
the West Zone Tournament.
San Bruno’s lineup is bolstered by the
heart of the batting order which includes
Capuchino standouts Ramon Enriquez and
Antonio Martinucci, with Riordan’s Kevin
Uniacke sandwiched between them in the
cleanup spot.
Enriquez has been a cornerstone player
both sides of the ball, according to Dornell.
The catcher put himself on the map behind
the plate for Capuchino as a sophomore this
season, hitting .337 while winning two
legs of the team triple crown with three
home runs and 25 RBIs.
Also an excellent defensive catcher,
Enriquez only took to the squat for the
Mustangs after junior Felix Aberouette
transferred to Serra. Otherwise, Enriquez
would have been relegated to a corner infield
position. Now with the San Bruno All-
Stars, he has solidified himself as a bona
fide catcher. He has started all but one of 11

Dodgers star Yusiel Puig shined in Los Angeles’ 8-1 win over the Giants Friday at AT&T Park. Puig was 4 for 5 with three triples on the night.
He now has eight three-baggers on the season, moving into a second-place tie with Brandon Crawford among NL triples leaders.
SAN FRANCISCO — Yasiel Puig tied a fran-
chise record with three triples and added a dou-
ble and two RBIs as the Los Angeles Dodgers
moved within a half-game of NL West-leading
San Francisco by beating the Giants 8-1 on
Friday night.
The Dodgers matched a club record with five
triples, including three during a five-run fifth
inning that chased Tim Lincecum (9-7). It was
the most triples in a game for the franchise
since 1921 and most by a Dodgers player since
Brooklyn’s Jimmy Sheckard had three in 1901.
Zack Greinke (12-6) tossed seven innings of
four-hit ball, striking out 10 and walking one.
Tyler Colvin hit an RBI single in the ninth for
San Francisco’s only run.
Greinke recorded another rare feat on a night
full of them: he struck out four batters in the
third after a wild pitch allowed Hunter Pence to
reach base on a swinging strike three.
Even with all of Greinke’s greatness, the
game belonged to Puig and the triple-crazed hit-
ters in blue.
The performances at the plate came after
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly shook up his
crowded outfield, putting Puig in center, mov-
ing Matt Kemp — who had three hits, includ-
ing a triple — to right and starting Carl
Crawford in left.
Puig got things going with a hard-hit fly ball
to center with one out in the first inning, flip-
ping his bat as he sprinted out of the box. Two
fans — one wearing a Giants jersey, the other
in a Dodgers uniform — battled for the ball as it
approached the wall, knocking it back on the

SANTACLARA— Patrick Willis hollered
at pal NaVorro Bowman a few days back to
keep him in the mix, even if the star line-
backer was a bystander as his teammates
endured their Day 1 conditioning tests.
Willis is so accustomed to running
through drills right alongside Bowman that
49ers training camp seems a bit strange
without his position mate and close friend.
Bowman is expected to miss at least half
the season as he recov-
ers from a devastating
left knee injury sus-
tained in the NFC cham-
pionship game loss to
the rival Seahawks.
“We were out there
doing a conditioning
test and I looked over
and he was watching us
do our conditioning test
and I wanted to just yell
at him, ‘Bo, what’s up, man?”’ Willis said.
“I don’t want to put more on him than what
he already has on his shoulders already. I
know that he wants to be out there more
than anything.”
There are a handful of candidates in the
mix to fill that huge void left by No. 53.
“I don’t see it as daunting at all,” line-
backer Michael Wilhoite said Friday. “I see
it as a great opportunity for somebody else
to step up and make a name for themselves.
... You have to embrace the fact we’re not
replacing Joe Schmo. We’re replacing the
best. So that means you have to be the

put him in the starting lineup for the opener
of a three-game series against the Los
Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.
“I know what I bring to a clubhouse. I know
what I can bring on the field, and I’m just
looking forward to going out there and hav-
ing fun with the guys,” Uggla said after slip-
ping into his newly stitched No. 22 Giants
uniform. “No added pressure here on my end.
I’ve been in some dark places and battled my
own struggles the last year and a half. But
that’s over now. I’m here to have fun.”
The Giants have had little production from
their second basemen this season.
Marco Scutaro and Ehire Adrianza were
placed on the 15-day disabled list before the
game. Scutaro’s strained lower back has kept
him out for all but five games this season —
though the Giants are still hopeful he can
come back — and Adrianza has a strained
right hamstring that is considered minor.
As a result, the Giants signed Uggla to a
minor league deal Monday. They also desig-
nated left-handed pitcher Jose De Paula and
infielder Nick Noonan for assignment Friday
to make room for Uggla and infielder Tony
Abreu, who was also called up from Triple-A.
Uggla went 2 for 7 with two walks and an
RBI in two games for Fresno.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy had hoped
Uggla could play more in the minors before
calling him up. The latest round of injuries
just didn’t allow it.
Bochy said he’s hoping Uggla can pull off

The Daily Journal seeks
two sales professionals
for the following positions:
Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
ARLINGTON, Texas — Jerome Williams
became the record 31st pitcher for Texas
this season, Neftali Feliz was back in a
familiar finishing role and the Rangers
finally got a home victory in July.
Williams pitched six solid innings in an
unlikely start and Feliz got his first save in
three seasons for the Rangers in a 4-1 victory
over ALWest-leading Oakland on Friday night.
“ I’m happy to be back in the role, and the
more happy I feel because I got a win for the
team,” Feliz said through an interpreter after
working around two runners in a scoreless
ninth. “I like to have that adrenaline flow
through me, because I feel fans pulling for
me to finish.”
Feliz, the closer again after Joakim Soria
was traded to Detroit earlier this week, got
his first regular-season save since 2011.
The former All-Star’s last opportunity,
before moving to the rotation and then get-
ting hurt and needing Tommy John surgery,
was a blown save in Game 6 of the 2011
World Series against St. Louis.
“He got it done. I’m more than certain the
more he gets the ball, the easier it will
probably come,” manager Ron Washington
said. “We’ll just keep giving him the ball
and see where it goes.”
Elvis Andrus had a triple among his two
hits and scored twice for the Rangers, who
had lost their seven previous home games
in July and were coming off a 2-5 road trip
out of the All-Star break.
The Athletics still have the best record in
the majors at 63-39, and they have a 22 1-2-
game division lead over last-place Texas,
which has won only six of its last 33 games.
Williams (2-4) allowed one run while
striking out four without a walk. The 32-
year-old right-hander was released by
Houston earlier this month and signed to a
minor league deal with the Rangers two
weeks ago. He also pitched previously for
San Francisco, the Chicago Cubs,
Washington and the division rival Los
Angeles Angels.
“I didn’t think I was going to come to Texas
because I played for the rival,” Williams said.
“I can’t really look at the future right now. I
can only look at the present.”
Texas purchased Williams’ contract from
Triple-A Round Rock as planned Friday to
start in place of Nick Tepesch, who pitched
in relief in the Rangers’ 14-inning loss to
the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.
Tepesch is scheduled to start Saturday night.
The Rangers have used a majors-high 52
players, three short of the club record. But
31 pitchers broke the previous mark, and
they still have reliever Nate Adcock waiting
for his season debut after coming up from
Round Rock on Thursday.
Texas led for good on J.P. Arencibia’s RBI
single after Jim Adduci had a leadoff double
over center fielder Yoenis Cespedes in the
second off Jason Hammel (0-3). Andrus had
a two-out triple in the third past Cespedes
and scored on a single by Alex Rios.
Hammel lost his third straight start since
coming from the Chicago Cubs with Jeff
Samardzjia in the July 5 trade. Hammel allowed
four runs (three earned) in 5 2-3 innings.
“The easiest thing here is to start getting
down on myself, but I’m not going to do
that,” he said. “I did a lot of good things
tonight, save for a few hard-hit balls.”
Yoenis Cespedes was back in Oakland’s
lineup after missing Thursday with a sprained
right thumb, and started in center field for
only the second time this year. He had an RBI
single in the sixth for Oakland’s only run.
Cespedes had an error in the sixth on a
wide throw home after Adrian Beltre’s RBI
single. Rios and Beltre got an extra base,
and Adduci followed with a sacrifice fly.
NOTES: Oakland manager Bob Melvin
successfully challenged to have two safe
calls at first base overturned on replay.
Arencibia was initially ruled safe on a pick-
off throw by Hammel in the fourth. Andrus
was called safe on what would have been an
infield single, but wound up the inning-end-
ing out in the seventh.
Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux and
longtime broadcaster Eric Nadel have hall
passes to miss this weekend’s series. Nadel,
in his 20th season as the lead voice on
Rangers radio broadcasts, will receive the
38th Ford C. Frick Award at the annual Hall
of Fame awards ceremony Saturday in
Cooperstown. Maddux is there for the
National Baseball Hall of Fame induction
Sunday of his brother Greg, a special assis-
tant for the Rangers.
Outfielder Jake Smolinski was put on the
15-day disabled list to make room for
Williams on the 25-man roster. Justin Marks
was released to clear a 40-man spot.

Gonzalez followed with a sharp single to right
to score Puig and give Los Angeles a 1-0 lead.
The Dodgers did most of their damage in a
wild fifth. Puig and Dee Gordon hit back-to-
back RBI triples, and Kemp had a two-run triple
as the Dodgers scored five runs in the inning.
Puig added his third triple to right-center off
reliever Juan Gutierrez in the sixth to extend the
Dodgers’ lead to 7-0. He thought he had anoth-
er extra-base hit when he flied out to deep center
in the eighth.
The last player with three triples in a game
was Denard Span for Minnesota in 2010.
Lincecum was charged with six runs and nine
hits in 4 1-3 innings. His start came after get-
ting two outs in Tuesday night’s 14-inning win
in Philadelphia for his first career save.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he didn’t
expect Lincecum to be tired from the extra
appearance because the
right-hander usually throws
a bullpen session on that
day between starts. Either
way, it was Lincecum’s
worst start since giving up
eight runs in 4 1-3 innings
at Cincinnati on June 3.
The night was even
shorter for his catcher.
Hector Sanchez took a
foul tip from Gonzalez off his mask in the third.
Sanchez struck out in the bottom of the inning
before Buster Posey moved from first to catcher
to begin the fourth.
NOTES: Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez
returned after missing three games with a left
wrist injury. He went 2 for 5 with one RBI.
The announced crowd of 41,753 was San
Francisco’s 300th consecutive regular-season
Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw (11-2, 1.92
ERA) starts opposite Giants right-hander Ryan
Vogelsong (5-7, 3.99 ERA) on Saturday night.

BERGERAC, France — Ramunas
Navardauskas of Lithuania led a
late breakaway in a downpour to
win the 19th Stage of the Tour de
France on Friday after hitching a
ride with his Garmin-Sharp team-
Italy’s Vincenzo Nibali retained
the overall leader’s yellow jersey
and is expected to take it home
with him when the three-week
cycling showcase ends Sunday. His
lead of more than seven minutes
over his closest challenger is so
big that only a racing disaster
could strip him of it.
Navardauskas stole away from
the pack late in the 208.5-kilome-
ter (129.5-mile) trek from
Maubourguet to Bergerac in south-
west France. He looked back over
his shoulder, kissed his fingers and
raised his arms in victory, with a
bunch of sprinters barreling
behind him. They crossed seven
seconds later, and the stragglers
The 26-year-old Garmin-Sharp
rider became the first Lithuanian to
win an individual stage at
cycling’s greatest race, and gave
his team its first stage win this
Tour. In 2011, he was on the
Garmin-Cervelo squad that won the
team time trial at the Tour that
year, and he also won a stage in
last year’s Italian Giro.
Garmin-Sharp made the win a
team effort.
First, Dutch rider Tom-Jelte
Slagter joined a five-man break-
away early on, then sped ahead
alone. Alex Howes of the United
States helped pull the Lithuanian
up front, before Navardauskas went
away solo with about 13 kilome-
ters (8 miles) left.
“I gave it all. My teammates
worked really hard for me,” said
Navardauskas. “I took a risk — you
have to try — and it worked.”
The performance offered some
vindication for Garmin-Sharp,
which has had a rough Tour. First,
team leader Andrew Talansky of the
U.S. pulled out before Stage 12 due
to pain from crashes. Three stages
later, New Zealand’s Jack Bauer
cried at the finish line after looking
back over his shoulder in the last
several seconds only to see the
pack deprive him of a long-break-
away victory with just meters to go.
“I was just hoping that it would
not happen the same way as Jack.
To the last 10 meters, I was afraid
to turn back,” said Navardauskas.
“I had no idea what was happening
behind me.”
Within the last few kilometers,
around a dozen riders crashed
together while trying to turn right-
ward on the rain-slickened roads.
Among them were Slovak rider
Peter Sagan, who has the green jer-
sey given to the race’s best sprint-
er, and Romain Bardet, who is fifth
Fellow Frenchman Jean-
Christophe Peraud, who is third,
briefly got delayed. Under course
rules, because the crash happened
in the last 3 kilometers (2 miles),
nobody who got ensnared in it lost
time in the title chase.
The top standings didn’t change.
The race’s final shakeout comes
Saturday with this year’s only indi-
vidual time trial. Nibali leads his
closest rival by more than seven
minutes, but the quest for the last
two podium spots is tight. Only 15
seconds separates second-placed
Thibaut Pinot, Peraud and
Alejandro Valverde in fourth.
The rolling race-against-the-
clock from Bergerac to Perigueux
is relatively long by Tour stan-
dards at 54 kilometers (33.5
miles). The discipline will require
riders to pace themselves, main-
tain a steady rhythm and face the
elements like wind or rain on their
own — without the protection of
the pack.
In reverse order of the standings,
riders are to set off one-by-one
down the starter’s ramp at several-
minute intervals over more than
six hours on Saturday.
Cheng Ji of Giant-Shimano,
who is competing in his first Tour
and is the first rider ever from
China to compete in the race, will
go first. Nibali goes last.

a turnaround similar to the kind Pat Burrell and Jeff Francoeur
did after signing with San Francisco in the middle of recent
“Sometimes change is good,” Bochy said. “We like taking
a look at players who have a track record, and he has an out-
standing track record. You look for them to be available, and
really, the timing was perfect for us.”
Uggla will cost the Giants only $500,000. The Braves are
responsible for the $18 million he’s guaranteed over the rest
of this season and next season.
The 34-year-old second baseman has 233 career homers
and a .244 average. He had five straight 30-homer seasons
for the Marlins and Braves from 2007-11 and has made three
NLAll-Star teams.
But since 2012, Uggla has hit just .196 with 43 homers
and 143 RBIs in 1,101 at-bats. He said he’s working on
“staying short” in his swing instead of trying to hit home
“We’re human. We’re going to fall out of whack some-
times,” Uggla said. “We have to get ourselves back into the
right places some way or another. And for me, that’s just try-
ing to get the barrel to the ball and staying as short as I can.”
More than anything, Uggla is excited for another opportu-
nity in the majors.
He has some familiarity with his new teammates, playing
with pitchers Tim Hudson in Atlanta and Yusmeiro Petit with
the Marlins, but otherwise the Giants offer a clean slate.
Uggla said he was excited to play in front of the nightly
sellouts at AT&T Park. He compared the feelings before his
debut with San Francisco to opening day.
“Anytime you do have an opening day or a first game,
that’s kind of similar to the butterflies you get on opening
day. It’s a fresh start,” he said. “I’m excited about it. I got all
the right nerves going, the anxious, excited-ness going. I’m
looking forward to getting it going.”

Hillsborough boys enjoy July hitting streaks
Home run droughts aside, the boys from Hillsborough are
on quite a tear.
Former St. Francis infielder Tyler
Goeddel recently capped a 12-game hitting
streak for Tampa Bay Rays High-Aaffiliate
Charlotte. And Serra’s all-time career hits
leader Tony Renda extended a hitting streak
to eight games Thursday for Washington
Nationals High-A affiliate Potomac with a
2-for-5 game at Winston-Salem.
Neither of the Hillsborough natives has
hit for much power this season, but the hit-
ting streaks have caused a healthy spike in
their batting averages. Goeddel hit at a .356 clip (16 for 45) over
his streak. Entering into play Friday, the big right-handed hitting
third baseman is hitting .265 with four home runs on the season.
All of Goeddel’s home runs came in the first two months of
the season, however. Since hitting his last home run — in his
first at-bat against Bradenton on May 7 — Goeddel has gone
218 at-bats without a dinger. Since being drafted in the supple-
mental first round by the Rays in 2011, his highest single-sea-
son total is seven home runs, which he accomplished in 450
at-bats during a full season at Low-ABowling Green in 2013.
Renda, meanwhile, has yet to homer at
all this year. Not that the long ball is a big
part of his game. He has hit just three
homers in two previous minor league sea-
sons since being selected in the second
round out of Cal in 2012.
Since returning in May from a quad injury
which cost him a month to the disabled
list, he has seen a steady rise in batting
average. With his two-hit performance
Thursday, Renda’s season average
improved to .301. Through his eight-game hitting streak, he is
hitting .500 (12 for 34) with three multi-hit games.
Clark impressing in Pioneer League
The best current pro hitting streak
among San Mateo County natives is
another former Serra star, DonAndre Clark.
Entering into play Friday, Clark has tabbed
a 13-game hitting streak for Kansas City
Royals Rookie-class team Idaho Falls.
Clark was selected in the 33rd round out
of St. Mary’s in June, and has been quite a
surprise at the plate. Since receiving limit-
ed playing time at the outset of the year,
Clark has been getting on base at an
exceptional rate. Serving predominantly as the Chukars’ lead-
off hitter, the fleet-footed switch-hitter has hit safely in 17 of
19 starts this season.
He has hit .345 (19 for 55) over the course of his hitting
streak and has tabbed a .303 mark on the year. He also has 11
stolen bases this season, ranking third in the Pioneer League.

games for San Bruno. And he is even
doing much of the team’s pitch calling.
“I think he’s one of the top kids in

the little things right. … He’s got a
great attitude. He’s got great hustle.
He’s one of the best players I’ve seen
since I’ve been coaching.”
But the unsung hero for San Bruno
has been second baseman Ben Godfrey.
The 15-year-old out of Serra started the
Colt League All-Star season as a utility
player, but has been hot with the bat —
having made just two outs this season,
according to Dornell — by virtue of
which Godfrey has forced his way into
the starting lineup.
“He’s worked himself into a starting
role because every time we bring him
in he gets a hit,” Dornell said.
Godfrey’s biggest hit of the season
came in the sixth inning of a scoreless
game against the Campbell Giants in
the Super Region tourney. With run-
ners on first and second, Godfrey was
asked to sacrifice; but he executed a per-
fect bunt down the third-base line and
hustled for an infield hit to load the
San Bruno went on to score eight
runs in the inning to win by a comfort-
able 8-1 margin.
“That just sparked our offense,”
Dornell said. “Ever since that game …
we haven’t looked back.”
The pitching staff also gave a gutsy
performance to propel San Bruno to
the three-game win streak to seal the
Region title. Oscar-Martin Munoz
went 6 1/3 innings in a 9-6 win over
Ceres in the first game of a July 21 dou-
bleheader. Martinucci fired a five-
inning shutout against the Red Sox in
the nightcap, as San Bruno triumphed
10-0 via mercy rule. In the decisive
rematch with the Red Sox on July 22,
Jesse Palafox threw a regulation com-
plete game to earn the win in San
Bruno’s 10-1 victory.
The West Zone Tournament spans
through Tuesday, featuring eight
teams: Chandler, Arizona; Kirkland,
Washington; Hilo, Hawaii; San
Bernardino; Riverside; San Jose PAL;
last season’s national champion Los
Gatos Legends; and San Bruno. The
winner of the tourney advances to the
Colt League World Series in Lafayette,
The San Bruno All-Stars are donning
familiar uniforms modeled after
Stanford University’s signature look
of white with Cardinal-red lettering.
The look is the brainchild of regular-
season San Bruno Rotary manager
Scott Zayak.
Zayak initially intended the uni-
forms for his old regular-season team,
the San Bruno Orioles, Dornell said.
However, the team’s former sponsor
demanded the uniforms maintain the
traditional green synonymous with
Capuchino’s team colors, Dornell said.
So, the San Bruno All-Stars adopted the
Stanford look instead.

prised of players from the Rotary and
Orioles squads.

NAPA — The start of training camp is a
time for optimism all around the NFL —
even for a team that has gone 11 straight
seasons without a winning season.
That was no different for the Oakland
Raiders, who held their first training camp
practice on Friday with the goal of ending the
longest run of futility in franchise history.
To change that recent past that includes
back-to-back four-win seasons under gener-
al manager Reggie McKenzie and coach
Dennis Allen, the Raiders spent much of
their offseason adding veteran players with
a winning pedigree.
While adding players in their 30s is not
the usual path for a rebuilding team, the
Raiders believe it can be a winning formula
in Oakland where teaching players how to
win was almost as needed as adding talent.
“We’ve got a lot of talent on this team,”
defensive end Justin Tuck said. “We’ve got
to put it together, obvi-
ously, and we’ve got to
exorcise some demons
that have been here, some
thought processes of
some guys that are used to
having 4-12 seasons. The
mindset has to change.
We hear it. I hear all the
things that people say
and I’m in the business of
proving people wrong.”
Tuck was one of the several newcomers
who arrive with Super Bowl experience,
joining defensive linemen LaMarr Woodley
and Antonio Smith, cornerbacks Carlos
Rogers and Tarell Brown and receiver James
Along with adding Donald Penn, Austin
Howard and Kevin Boothe to the offensive
line and running back Maurice Jones-Drew
to the backfield, the Raiders have more tal-
ent than they have had in the first two years
of this regime.
“I feel as good as I’ve felt coming into a
season,” Allen said. “I think we’ve got more
depth on our football team than we’ve had at
any point up to this point.”
But perhaps the most crucial newcomer
will be quarterback Matt Schaub, who is get-
ting a fresh start in Oakland after losing his
job during a rough 2013 in Houston.
Schaub set an NFL record by having an
interception returned for a touchdown in
four straight games, lost the starting job to
Case Keenum and was harassed by frustrated
fans who went as far as burning his jersey.
“I think he’s very hungry,” Allen said. “I
think he’s excited about the new opportuni-
t y. I think anytime you go into something
new there’s a little bit of, maybe it’s an
increased focus, an increased intensity
level, because it is new. You kind of force
yourself out of your comfort zone a little
bit. I think he’s done that.
Schaub was anointed the starter when
Oakland acquired him in a trade from
Houston in March. Oakland then drafted
Derek Carr in the second round but still plan
to have Schaub as starter.
He welcomes the chance at a fresh start
after seven seasons with the Texans and
likes the upgrades the Raiders have made
this offseason.
“It’s exciting to be a part of that,” he said.
“It’s definitely an exciting time as a veteran
to make this transition over here to this
team to help get back to that Raider way. It’s
exciting to see what they’ve done.”
NOTES: Wide receiver Greg Little made a
few highlight-reel catches along the side-
line but also dropped one easy ball as he
tries to shake the inconsistency label that
dogged him during his time in Cleveland.
All 82 players on the active roster were
able to practice. Oakland has five players on
the PUP list, two on the non-football injury
list and one open roster spot.

SAN DIEGO — Four European teams intend-
ing to challenge for the America’s Cup released
a statement Friday supporting the event fol-
lowing the withdrawal of an Australian syndi-
cate that was serving as Challenger of Record.
The statement was released by Britain’s Ben
Ainslie Racing, Sweden’s Artemis Racing,
Italy’s Luna Rossa Challenge and Team France.
Conspicuous by its absence was Team New
Zealand, which lost last year’s America’s Cup
match to Oracle Team USA after leading 8-1.
The Kiwis have said they intend to enter the
next America’s Cup. Team officials didn’t
respond to emails seeking comment.
The statement said the four challengers
“confirm their full support to the event” regard-
less of the venue.
After eliminating a return to San Francisco,
America’s Cup officials have narrowed the
venue competition to San Diego or Bermuda. A
decision is expected in the fall.
“I think it was really just in the wake of
Hamilton Island standing down, for us as chal-
lengers to say, look, we still really support and
believe in this event and are excited about the
future,” Ainslie told The Associated Press by
phone from England.
Ainslie, the most decorated
Olympic sailor in history,
had a key role in Oracle
Team USA’s 9-8 victory
over the Kiwis on San
Francisco Bay. He’s now
hoping to become the first
Englishman to win the old-
est trophy in international
Australia’s Hamilton Island Yacht Club with-
drew as Challenger of Record last week, citing
the cost of the next America’s Cup.
There has also been consternation among
the challengers about the America’s Cup being
pulled out of San Francisco.
Iain Percy, head of Artemis Challenge, said
the next America’s Cup will be “a brilliant
“Sometimes we don’t do justice by concen-
trating on all the politics and negativity. We
need to just get on with it a bit,” Percy told the
APby phone.
The statement said the challengers “look
forward to establish a constant dialogue with
the Defender Oracle Team USA” and “to coop-
erate actively with the Defender to adapt the
rules where need be.”
Percy said Artemis has been consistent in
not agreeing with Oracle’s idea of a split
venue, in which the first rounds of the chal-
lenger elimination series would be held in
one port and the final stages, including the
challenger semifinals, finals and America’s
Cup match, would be held in another venue.
The split venue concept might be moot if
four or fewer challengers enter by the Aug. 8
“We’ve always said that’s not something
we particularly agree with,” Percy said. “It’s
not stopping us from entering but it’s some-
thing we don’t particularly like.”
According to minutes of a recent chal-
lengers meetings obtained by the AP, it was
a “universal concern” that Bermuda “is not a
great venue,” and “all challengers feel that
San Francisco is the right location for the
finals and match.”
“San Francisco is obviously one of the
best sailing venues in terms of wind and
conditions and spectators,” Percy said from
his team’s base in Alameda, across the bay
from San Francisco. “It’s very hard for all
teams to turn away and accept that it just
wasn’t working from a commercial stand-
point. But it has to pay for itself for the
long term and for the short term. Frankly,
it’s just the way it is.”
Percy said it would be bad if the wind in
Bermuda or San Diego wasn’t strong enough
for the 62-foot, wing sail catamarans to
consistently rise up on hydrofoils and skim
across the waves.
“The other venues are not as good in terms
of as sailing conditions as San Francisco.
There’s nothing controversial about saying
that,” said Percy, who added that teams have
received updated wind data about Bermuda
and San Diego.
Percy said the second-generation catama-
rans “will provide entertainment. Will it be
quite as spectacular as watching from the
shore of Alcatraz? Probably not. That does
not mean that it won’t be probably the best,
most entertaining sport that will be on in
It’s believed that Luna Rossa and Artemis
are the only challengers to submit entries
so far, and that the Italians would be in line
to become Challenger of Record, which rep-
resents all foreign syndicates in dealing
with the defending champion.

It helps to have Willis and
everybody else supporting him
every step.
“I want him to take his time.
Most of all I want to make sure
when he comes back that he’s
ready to go and he doesn’t have
any setbacks. He’s a great athlete
and he still has a lot of football
ahead,” Willis said, noting his
unit will be “working as we do
every year to try to be the best
linebacking corps there is in the
National Football League.”
Bowman is doing his own
intense conditioning regimen.
Coach Jim Harbaugh is pleased
with Bowman’s progress. He has
been running and will soon be
testing the knee with cutting.
“That’ll be next in that process.
Talked to him yesterday about it.
Positive,” said Harbaugh, who
wouldn’t guess when Bowman
might be back. “NaVorro is the
cream-of-the-crop of the athletes,
professional athletes, on a foot-
ball team. ... Very hopeful. Very
optimistic. Knowing NaVorro the
way I do, nothing would surprise
me if it’s sooner than that. That
would not be a surprise when
you’re talking about NaVorro.”
The Niners also could be without
linebacker Aldon Smith, who is
expected to meet soon with NFL
Commissioner Roger Goodell
about a possible suspension from
the league for his legal troubles.
Wilhoite started two games last
season and will again have a
chance to fill a big void in the mid-
dle until Bowman is healthy. For
now, Wilhoite is a contender to
start, yet there could be mixing
and matching in packages with
Corey Lemonier, Nick Moody and
even rookies Chris Borland and
Shayne Skov, who has played in
this system at Stanford.
“It’s an advantage for him in
that he knows he can go out there
and play in an NFL game,” defen-
sive coordinator Vic Fangio said
of Wilhoite.
“At times it will be challenging.
Any time you lose two great play-
ers somebody’s got to go in there
and do the job. We don’t expect
those guys going in there to be as
good as those two guys are.
They’re at the top of their profes-
sion. But we’ll find a way. ”
With a healthy Justin Smith
fueling a fearsome front seven, he
knows the linebackers will do
their part no matter the personnel.
“It’s never good to lose a guy
like NaVorro for experience. It’s
part of it,” Smith said. “A guy
goes down, a guy’s got to step up.
We’ve got some young guys in
there and some other guys who
have been around that hopefully
come into that position and play
well. We’ve got all the confidence
in them.”
NOTES: Chris Culliver and
Tramaine Brock are the corner-
backs working with the first team
for now — and it’s their job to
lose. Culliver is looking to
bounce back after missing last
season. He tore the anterior cruci-

Sheriff Quinn Colson has been working to
clean up corruption and injustice in Ace
Atkins’ compelling crime fiction series, but
he can’t change the past of Jericho,
Mississippi, when he’s faced with a decades-
old crime that leads to scrutiny of his own
past in “The
In the fourth
novel of this
solid series,
Quinn is
approached by
Diane Tull,
who, back in
1977, was
raped on a
country road
when she was
17 years old.
Her 14-year-
old friend was
murdered in the
same assault. Three days later, a group of local
men found a black man they blamed for the
attacks and brutally murdered him.
Now, 37 year later, Diane wants Quinn to
reopen that old case because she is sure the
wrong man was killed. Quinn’s investigation
leads to some uncomfortable facts about his
father, who left his family more than 20 years
ago and hasn’t made contact in years with
either Quinn or his younger sister, Caddy.
Meanwhile, Quinn and his deputy, Lillie
Virgil, are under investigation for killing two
men who had tried to murder them. One of
those men was a cop who had been in the
pocket of Johnny Stagg, a prominent Jericho
businessman and politician who also runs a
lucrative criminal enterprise.
Atkins excels in solid pacing, effective dia-
logue and compelling characters in “The
Forsaken.” Quinn’s background as a former
U.S. Ranger and his relationship with his
family, which includes his mother, sister and
her young son, add texture to the series. A
good soldier, Quinn has now found his calling
as the sheriff. Atkins shapes Quinn not as a
superman, but as a flawed man who wants to
do the right thing for his hometown.

LOS ANGELES — You’ll have to say one
thing for Brett Ratner’s production of
“Hercules”: This movie has a sense of pro-
portion. Running just over 90 minutes, the
movie is often clunky, but at least it’s fast
and unpretentious. And its likable star,
Dwayne Johnson, manages to murder
legions without ever seeming sadistic. Less
violent than “300,” less compelling than
“Gladiator,” this new addition to the sword-
and-sandals genre seems likely to please
the fanboy audience and stir up some
impressive box-office numbers.
The film begins by recounting the legend
of Hercules, with snippets of his famous 12
labors. But this is not the Steve Reeves ver-
sion of the tale. Johnson’s Hercules (as
envisioned by comic book author Steve
Moore) is a flawed hero. Bereft over the mur-
ders of his wife and children, Hercules has
joined up with a band of loyal comrades who
will basically sell their services to the
highest bidder. In other words, they’re mer-
cenaries. But you can bet it won’t be too
long before Hercules rediscovers a noble
purpose. That happens when he is enlisted
by the lovely daughter of the lord of Thrace
to save her kingdom from civil war. Let the
mayhem begin.

Director Woody Allen arrives for the premiere of his film ‘Magic in the Moonlight’ in New York.
Throughout his long career, Woody
Allen has been fascinated by magic, a
theme he’s explored frequently
onscreen: playing a magician in
“Scoop,” sending Owen Wilson on
time travel in “Midnight in Paris,” or
pulling Jeff Daniels out of a movie
screen in “The Purple Rose of Cairo.”
And though one might think, with
the wave of terrible publicity he went
through earlier this year, that a bit of
magician-like escape into a bygone
era or a movie screen is just what he
might prefer, Allen is doing anything
but disappear.
He’s not only making movies on
the same famously ambitious, one-
per-year schedule he’s adhered to for
almost half a century. He’s also
actively promoting his latest, the
lighthearted period romp “Magic in
the Moonlight,” even as he’s busy
shooting his next movie in
Providence, Rhode Island.
But anyone who expected Allen to
speak further on the personal issues
that arose last year — the revival of
accusations by his adopted daughter,
Dylan Farrow, that he abused her when
she was 7 — will be disappointed. The
78-year-old director has held true to
his word that he would say nothing fur-
ther, following a February letter to the
New York Times in which he vigorous-
ly denied the allegations.
The question does remain whether
Allen’s personal issues might affect
the public reception of his new film,
which stars Colin Firth as a cynical
stage magician and Emma Stone as the
young spiritualist whose magical pow-
ers he seeks to debunk. “One thing
doesn’t have to do with the other, ”
says Michael Barker, co-president of
Sony Pictures Classics, which releases
the film on Friday.
Box office expert Paul Dergarabedian
expects fans to agree.
“For fans, I think there’s a total sep-
aration that occurs with Woody Allen,”
says Dergarabedian, senior media ana-
lyst for box-office tracker Rentrak.
“Coming in, you know there’s this
baggage ... but his filmmaking tran-
scends all that. His audiences seem to
keep lining up for his films.”
So far, reviews for the new film have
been mixed. In any case, Allen himself
says he long ago stopped trying to fig-
ure out how his movies will be
“I have no idea,” he said in a tele-
phone interview, when asked about
prospects for “Moonlight.”
“I’m always disappointed in each
movie when I’m finished,” he
explained, “because there’s a big dif-
ference between the fantasy you have
when you’re home writing the thing,
and you think, this is going to be so
great ... and then you actually have to

“Moby Dick” by Herman Melville
occupies a high spot on the list of great
American novels. Another American
great, Orson Welles, transformed it into
a stage version called “Moby Dick —
Stanford Repertory Theater has taken
on the challenges of this work in its
second summer production featuring
both Stanford students and Bay Area
professional actors.
This one-act, approximately 100-
minute play begins as casually dressed
actors (costumes by Connie Strayer)
rehearse Shakespeare’s “King Lear. ”
Dissatisfied with the director’s
approach, they begin their own project,
“Moby Dick,” starting with its memo-
rable opening line, “Call me Ishmael.”
From there the 15 actors enact the
epic story of a 19th century whaling
boat, the Pequod, and its captain’s mani-
acal pursuit of the white whale, Moby
Dick, that bit off one of his legs below
the knee.
Veteran Bay Area professional Rod
Gnapp plays Lear in the opening scene,
then becomes the obsessed Captain
Ahab in a memorable performance.
Another standout in the cast is profes-
sional actor Peter Ruocco as Starbuck,
the first mate and the only crewmember
who voices his doubts directly to Ahab.
Among the students, Louis
McWilliams is noteworthy as Ishmael,
the saga’s narrator.
Another professional in the cast is
Courtney Walsh, who plays several
roles and serves as movement/dance
Directed by Rush Rehm, the produc-
tion moves fairly well with a few lulls in
the middle. However, some of the actors
need to work on diction, and the shout-
ing is overdone in some scenes.
The scaffold set by Annie Dauber
defines the ship, aided by lighting by
Michael Ramsaur and the sound design
by Michael Keck, who wrote some of
the music. Music director Weston
Gaylord elicits some fine choral
singing, especially in “Eternal Father,
Strong to Save,” a.k.a. “The Navy
It’s significant that Welles incorpo-
rated part of “King Lear” in his play, for
some parallels can be seen. The most
apparent is the ascent into madness by
Lear and Ahab. In addition, the off-kilter
cabin boy, Pip (Maia Kazin), can be
compared with Tom or the Fool in
This production is part of SRT’s 16th
summer festival, dubbed Orson Welles:
Substantial Shadows. Later this summer
the company will present a theatrical
recreation of Welles’ famous 1938 radio
broadcast, “The War of the Worlds.” Free
showings of several Welles films feature

Mike Tyson eyes Jamie
Foxx in movie about ex-champ
TORONTO — Mike Tyson says he’s met with Oscar-win-
ning actor Jamie Foxx about collaborating on a possible
biopic on his life.
“Me and Jamie Foxx have been talking
and he’s willing to take that role and por-
tray me as Mike Tyson, doing my life
story,” the former heavyweight boxing
champion said Friday during a conference
call to promote an upcoming Toronto
date for his one-man show, “Mike Tyson:
Undisputed Truth.” “I think he’s splendid
because he’s really up to par. I think he
would do a magnificent job.”
Further brainstorming of the project
will “happen very shortly,” he added.
“I saw him the other night and we dis-
cussed it,” Tyson said. “He doesn’t have
the physicality but he will. He’s able to
... get bulky, so he’s capable of doing it
in the future.”
Tyson will bring his solo production to
Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on Sept. 10.
Tickets go on sale July 31.

with a cave. In the 1950s, the proprietors of Marvel
Cave, one of the largest caves in Missouri, were looking
for a way to keep tourists in the area after they had
explored the cavern. They decided to build a theme park
in the form of a
replica Ozark min-
ing town on the
surface above the
cave. Thus, Silver
Dollar City was
born. The town,
originally com-
prised of five
shops, a church
and a log cabin, got its name because early visitors
received their change in silver dollars. Today, the greatly
expanded village is made up of 10 distinct districts where
family-oriented stage shows run throughout the day.
Themed amusement rides within its boundaries include
Outlaw Run, the world’s steepest wooden coaster (a first
drop of 162 feet at 81 degrees). And, of course, 300 feet
below Silver Dollar City, Marvel Cave continues to offer
its popular tours as it has since 1894, making it one of
the longest running attractions in the Ozarks.
Silver Dollar City has also developed into a major
national craft center. Period correct buildings house
dozens of workshops where artisans demonstrate their
skills. Visitors can watch glassblowers, basket weavers,
potters, blacksmiths, bladesmiths, quilters and bakers,
and then take home decorative arts, food and even fur-
nishings made with the tools and traditions of a by-gone
Senior Craftsman Dennis Smith, who works at
Mountain Outfitters making knives, gives a sense of the
rich heritage that Silver Dollar City preserves.
Knifemaking for Smith is both an art and a connection
with history. Tired of modern culture’s “disposable
approach to things,” he began blacksmithing as a
hobby, intrigued by the 3,000-year-old art. Smith states
simply, “I like old stuff.” Having grown up on a hill farm
along the Spring River in northeast Arkansas where
hunting and fishing were primary pastimes, he first craft-
ed implements from camping equipment to fireplace sets.
He later discovered an ancestral connection: his great-
great-grandfather had been a blacksmith during the Civil
After Smith retired in 2007, he began working at the
Silver Dollar City Blacksmith Shop. Some of the most
popular items he hammered out were knives crafted from
railroad spikes — so popular that soon railroad spike
knives were all he made. Silver Dollar City’s Master
Craftsman and Bladesmith Ray Johnson recruited Smith
to move to the Knife Shop where he began expanding his
knifemaking skills. Smith now makes a variety of
knives from the intricately patterned Damascus style
knives to the relatively simple but still popular railroad
spike knives.
Smith said: “The more technological the world gets,
with people sitting in front of a computer all day, the
more they are interested in something people create with
their hands. I can take an ugly black piece of steel and
turn it into a functional, almost indestructible tool that
will last for generations — and can be considered a work
of art as well. A surprising number of knives are pur-
chased by women. The biggest knife our shop makes is a
“hoof rasp knife,” made from a farrier’s hoof rasp. The
first three they sold were all to women. Then a woman
from California came in and bought a $550 Damascus
knife. These are the 320 layer knives with the intricate
patterns on the blade. I asked, ‘Ma’am, do you mind if I
ask what you’re going to do with that knife?’ and she
said, ‘I’m an artist. I’m going to look at it.’”
Smith and his fellow craftsmen are regularly present at
Silver Dollar City, but the town’s annual National
Harvest & Cowboy Festival, this year from Sept. 12 -
Oct. 25, brings in over 100 more visiting craftsmen for
the seven-week event. To meet some of the Silver Dollar
City artisans, visit VIDEO:

and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday
things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which
almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” —

Comic-Con gets look
at ‘Mockingjay’ trailer
SAN DIEGO — The trailer for the next film in the popular
“Hunger Games” series is making its premiere at Comic-
Fans gathered Friday at the Capitol Gallery in downtown
San Diego, where holographic versions of two characters
from the film offered visitors a silent welcome before the
minute-long teaser trailer was shown.
The trailer opens with a hovership landing and a meeting
between leaders of the rebellion, where Phillip Seymour
Hoffman and a gray-haired Julianne Moore discuss Katniss
Everdeen’s role. Meanwhile, President Snow (Donald
Sutherland) declares the Mockingjay symbol illegal.
Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is shown entering the under-
ground bunker where refugees of Panem are hiding, and she
agrees to take up their cause.
Being the first to see the trailer for “The Hunger Games:
Mockingjay Part I” was only part of the Capitol Gallery
experience, which occupied part of the Hard Rock Hotel. In
an all-white setting inspired by President Snow’s Capitol
color scheme, visitors could enjoy treats from Peeta’s bak-
ery, witness colorful Capitol fashions, design souvenir T-
shirts and have their photo taken with the holographic

ly flat — stuff.
The film begins in 1928 Berlin with the
chaotic backstage life of a haughty, grouchy
Chinese illusionist, Wei Ling Soo, played
by the magician Stanley Crawford (Firth).
It’s a promising start: Here is Firth, in regal,
oriental garb and long mustache, disparag-
ing autographs as “for mental defectives.”
More of this, and “Magic in the
Moonlight” could have been a very funny
movie. But Wei Ling Soo doesn’t again per-
form, and instead the rest of the film feels
oddly missing the jokes it seems built to
convey. Crawford — a self-described
“rational man” who believes in his art, not
in actual magic — sets off to the South of
France to unmask a medium, Sophie Baker
(Stone), gaining renown for her prescient
“mental impressions.”
They meet at the sumptuous Cote d’Azur
home of the Catledge family, whose rich
bachelor Brice (Hamish Linklater) swoons
unapologetically for Sophie. Adance of dis-
trust begins between the cocksure Crawford
and the lithe, charming Sophie across a
vivid, widescreen backdrop of cars, clothes
and coastline.
Crawford, whose fiancee hasn’t joined him
on the trip, is both supremely confident in
his realistic worldview (Nietzsche, he says,
resolved “the God problem rather convinc-
ingly”) and abundantly unhappy. Audiences
will surely see where the film is going as it
sets up a quite rigidly explored dichotomy
between blithe believing and scientific cer-
It’s an argument for illusion in our lives,
no matter how fraudulent; for love, no mat-
ter how illogical. “Magic in the
Moonlight” is a disbeliever’s earnest plea
to believe.
These are, of course, ideas Allen has long
explored, and “Magic in the Moonlight”
often feels like the kind of tidy New Yorker
humor story the filmmaker might pen. Even
with bright performances and lively chem-
istry between Stone and Firth, the movie is
stale with the fixed rhythm of the written
word, not alive to its images, despite the
rich setting. (Aquick aside: Is it possible to
not have good on-screen chemistry with
Stone? From Ryan Gosling to Spider-Man,
she bewitches everyone.)
Allen is in complete control of the film,
both its comic pacing and its philosophical
quandary. But perhaps that’s the problem:
Like Crawford, “Magic in the Moonlight”
needs to be less in control of itself. The film
doesn’t believe in magic enough.
“Magic in the Moonlight,” a Sony
Pictures Classics release, is rated R by the
Motion Picture Association of America for
“a brief suggestive comment, and smoking
throughout.” Running time: 100 minutes.
Two and a half stars out of four.
Continued from page 18
lains are more complex than first appear-
ances suggest. There’s just enough plot to
keep the movie lurching forward, and there
are plenty of battle scenes to delight con-
noisseurs of carnage. (The movie’s PG-13
rating seems fairly lenient.) One problem
with these battle scenes is the frenetic edit-
ing, an unfortunate staple of contemporary
action pictures. On the positive side, the
sets (by production designer Jean-Vincent
Puzos, who also designed one of Ratner’s
favorite movies, “Amour”) are impressive,
and the crowd scenes, even if enhanced by
CGI, stir happy memories of films like
“Spartacus” and “Ben-Hur. ”
The classy cast also elevates the picture.
Ian McShane gives a droll performance as a
soothsayer who’s always surviving predic-
tions of his own death. John Hurt is work-
ing in the glorious tradition of Claude Rains
in “The Adventures of Robin Hood” while
Joseph Fiennes is doing a Basil Rathbone
as his venal confederate. As the one woman
in the troupe of mercenaries, Ingrid Bolso
Berdal wields a mean bow and arrow. Tobias
Santelmann (star of the Norwegian Oscar
nominee “Kon-Tiki”) has an imposing pres-
ence as Hercules’ antagonist-turned-ally.
Some of these actors have won awards, but
a trip to the dais is not likely to be in the
future for our star. Still, Johnson plays his
role with good humor and more conviction
than Steve Reeves could ever muster. When
he finally breaks free of his chains and bel-
lows, “I am Hercules,” the audience
responds with just the right degree of child-
ish glee.
There are some neat 3-D effects, but as
with so many recent 3-D offerings, the for-
mat doesn’t seem absolutely essential. The
cinematography by Ratner’s frequent col-
laborator Dante Spinotti is vibrant, and the
musical score by Fernando Velazquez is rous-
ing. Most important, the pacing is snappy.
It may sound like a backhanded compliment
to praise this sometimes cheesy movie for
never taking itself too seriously, but in a
summer of bloated spectacles, this modesty
should not be underestimated.
“Hercules,” a Paramount Pictures release,
is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture
Association of America for “epic battle
sequences, violence, suggestive comments,
brief strong language and partial nudity. ”
Running time: 98 minutes.

NEW YORK — Colin Firth had been
hoping for decades to get a call from
Woody Allen.
Emma Stone, at only 25, hadn’t been
waiting nearly as long — but she notes
her family dog IS named Alvy, after a clas-
sic Allen character, and she can keep up
with Firth in a spontaneous recounting of
the bank robbery scene in “Take the
Money and Run.”
The two stars of “Magic in the
Moonlight,” opening Friday, were both
working for the first time with Allen, and
they sat down recently to recount what it
was like.
“I was incredibly nervous,” said Stone.
“You don’t get to know him first, there’s
no rehearsal, you don’t see him before
shooting. ”
As for Firth, he had a quick and some-
what strange phone call with the 78-year-
old director.
“I thought he’d asked for the call, and it
turns out he thought I’d asked for it,” said
Firth. “Cate (Blanchett) told me the same
happened to her with ‘Blue Jasmine.”’
The call, needless to say, was quick.
“It wasn’t of the ‘Welcome to the film!’
variety,” says Firth. “It was just sort of,
‘Cut to the chase.”’
Firth plays Stanley, a cynical stage
magician who seeks to unmask Sophie, a
young American medium, as a fraud.
But Firth points out that magic tricks
aren’t his strong suit.
“I was called upon to perform a simple
card trick. That was the only time I saw a
hint of impatience from Woody,” the actor
laughs. “He was just sighing.” The scene
was eventually cut.
Firth had been waiting for years to work
with Allen. “This person’s work had such
a specific role to play in my whole rela-
tion with movies,” he said. “To suddenly
be invited to join the narrative a bit is
Both actors said a number of stories
they’d heard about Allen turned out to be
“There are a lot of stories,” said Firth.
“He doesn’t really direct, don’t expect him
to make jokes on the set, that sort of
thing. No. He directs, and he was funny. ”
Firth, 53, is an obvious fan. Asked his
Allen favorites, he replied: “Different
ones at different ages. ‘Bananas’ was the
first. Brilliantly judged silliness. As was
‘Take the Money and Run.”’
At this point, Firth basically re-enacted
the bank robbery scene, with the famous
illegible stickup note. Stone chimed in
with her own memories.
“I remember watching that with my
grandparents,” the actress said.
While Stone’s already working with
Allen again — shooting in Providence,
Rhode Island — Firth doesn’t think light-
ning will strike twice.
“It’s taken him 50 years to ask me the
first time, so by the current rate I’ll be
104 by the time he asks me again,” he

execute it, and Emma Stone can’t possibly
walk across the room as fast as you pictured,
because no human can. ... And so I’m always
disappointed, and I never have an idea which
ones are going to resonate with an audi-
Dergarabedian notes that big-name actors
“are still lining up to work with Allen.” That
would include Firth and Stone, both work-
ing with Allen for the first time.
“His work has had such a specific role to
play in my whole relation with movies,”
Firth said, “that to suddenly be invited to
join the narrative a bit is thrilling.”
Stone is only 25 — less than half Firth’s
age — but still has a connection to Allen’s
films. “My mom showed me ‘Annie Hall,”’
said the actress, who noted that her family
dog is named Alvy, after Alvy Singer,
Allen’s role in that film.
“I was incredibly nervous,” Stone said of
the prospect of working with Allen. But
clearly it worked out: She’s now shooting
his new movie, along with Joaquin
In “Moonlight,” you could say Firth has
the requisite Woody Allen protagonist role.
And his character, Stanley, exudes the same
cynicism about magic and spiritualism that
Allen feels. “He’s a magician who’d love to
be proven wrong,” said Allen. Especially
because “he knows that life is a tough, bru-
tal, grim, meaningless grind full of
heartache and tragedy, accruing to nothing.”
If that sounds sober, listen to Allen’s own
(abridged here) view of life:
“In the end,” he said, “you realize that
you’re just a human being on the face of the
earth, an insignificant agglomeration of
cells and neurons, and eventually that
expires, and eventually everything expires.
It’s terrifying.”
Allen says the best antidote is distraction,
a gift he’s been trying to give his audiences
for 50 years. But don’t expect a happy
answer to the question of whether experi-
ence makes him a better director.
“I wish that were true,” he said, ruefully.
“In an art form, you start from scratch all the
time. You gain a little technique over the
years. But inspirationally — that’s in the
lap of the gods.
“If I’m lucky, I get a great inspiration and
it’s a good film. If I’m not lucky, I get less
inspired, and it’s not such a good film.”

the information. Others pulled a smatter-
ing of utility bills from a few sites only
after being contacted — data they
acknowledged was not sufficient to gauge
the effectiveness of conservation efforts.
One of the largest water users, the
California Department of Transportation,
provided 2014 data for water accounts in
four cities and one county, and couldn’t
provide any 2013 numbers. The agency
has more than 7,500 accounts.
“Obviously, we have quite a bit more
data to review,” spokesman Mark Dinger
The agency believes it will meet or
exceed the governor’s target, Dinger said.
The lack of accounting by Caltrans and
other agencies is another example of how
the state is struggling to keep track of
water use. A recent AP story detailed how
state regulators do not know how many
trillions of gallons have been diverted by
corporations, agricultural concerns and
others that have “senior water rights”
entitling them to free water.
With California in the grip of its worst
drought in a generation, Brown declared an
emergency on Jan. 17 and asked residents
and agencies to trim usage. There is no
penalty for failure to comply.
Meanwhile, residents can face fines from
local authorities for wasting water.
The State Water Resources Control
Board, frustrated that consumption
statewide increased 1 percent in May from
a year ago, voted this month to impose
fines up to $500 a day for wasteful outdoor
water use such as excessive lawn watering
and sidewalk washing.
Tracking water usage across the state’s
sprawling government is not like check-
ing a residential utility bill, state officials
With thousands of accounts billed at var-
ious times and utilities measuring con-
sumption in various ways, the task of
compiling data has proven complex, said
Brian Ferguson, spokesman for the
Department of General Services, which is
helping coordinate the state’s drought
“There’s not just an iPad app we can turn
on to do this,” Ferguson said.
Under a 2012 executive order, by March
1, state agencies were supposed to have
cataloged site-by-site water use from 2013
in a central database. That data entry fell
behind schedule, but is nearly complete,
Ferguson said.
Neither that executive order nor Brown’s
emergency declaration required agencies to
track 2014 usage in real time, he said. The
2014 analysis doesn’t need to happen
until early 2015.
“That’s a lame excuse,” said state Sen.
Jim Nielsen, R-Gerber. He agreed that cal-
culating usage across larger state agencies
is a chore, but said it should be done in real
time and the fact that it hasn’t is “another
example of a broken government.”
Other than saying in a written statement
that “more aggressive action will be need-
ed” to save water, Brown’s office referred
questions to the Department of General
Services — which said the available data
suggest state agencies are working hard to
meet Brown’s goal.
Four of the 11 agencies were able to pro-
vide water usage totals for all major facili-
ties they own during the first half of both
years. According to AP’s analysis of those
• The Department of State Hospitals,
with five campuses that provide mental
health care to about 5,600 patients at any
given time, trimmed water use by 18 per-
cent, to 139 million gallons in 2014. The
conservation rate increased as the year
went on.
• Water use dropped by 21 percent, to 99
million gallons, at the four Department of
Developmental Services’ facilities where
1,200 people with developmental disabil-
ities live.
• The Department of Veterans Affairs cut
use 11 percent, to 82 million gallons at
eight veterans’ residences plus headquar-
ters and a cemetery.
• The Employment Development
Department, which provides unemploy-
ment insurance and collects payroll taxes,
used more than 4.5 million gallons in
2014, a 32 percent drop. The agency said
it could provide data for 26 facilities, not
including 158 sites it leases or occupies in
buildings run by another state agency.
In addition, two provided data for all
facilities but a limited timeframe. The
Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation sent 2014 usage data for all
34 state prisons, but only for one month
in 2013. Data from Cal Expo, the fair and
event space in Sacramento, did not cover
the first two-plus months of each year.
The remaining agencies provided just a
snapshot of use from a small fraction of
their sites. They were: Caltrans; the
California Highway Patrol; and the depart-
ments of General Services, Water
Resources and Parks and Recreation.
Several agencies said conservation
would have been greater but for one-time
construction projects. Some pointed out
that new cuts can be a challenge because
prior efforts already eliminated some water

Barrelhouse Bar on California Avenue three
years ago. The two have noticed changes in
Burlingame over the years, from being very
busy when they started business to a slow-
down during the recession to an upswing.
“Now it’s booming,” Loredo said. “There

Loredo and Natividad, both originally
from San Jose, met through the fraternity
Theta Chi at San Jose State University
where they both majored in advertising.
After working in the corporate world, both
Loredo and Natividad realized they were
both not built for 9-5 jobs.
They also bartended together in down-
town San Jose during college and went on to
open their first bar, Vinyl Room, when they
were both 25.
“A bartenders dream is to open up a bar, ”
Loredo said. “It was definitely challenging.
It was kind of hard to do.”
Looking to get out of the South Bay, the
proprietors looked to San Francisco to open
a bar, but felt they wanted to get their feet
wet first before venturing to the city.
A biggest challenge was not knowing
anyone in the area but, with some network-
ing, the two said they are now well-connect-
ed. The small ’70s disco bar Rockets seemed
like perfect location for them to flip, Loredo
“We saw a bar for sale and liked that it was
in a small neighborhood,” he said. “It was a
small location we could put the concept in
really easily and run with it.”
This August, the bar will switch from
hours of 5 p.m.-2 a.m. Wednesday-Saturday
to be open every day 5 p.m.-2 a.m.
“We were preoccupied with Barrelhouse,
which is open every day,” Loredo said.
“Now that we have more stuff on this corner
and a new Burlingame Avenue, we decided to
start opening up every day. Customers were
also requesting it.”
The two do have advice for aspiring entre-
“Both of us don’t have kids but, with a
first kid, parents say they’re always up and
tired,” Loredo said. “The feeling seems pret-
ty similar [to having a first business]. The
second business was easier — we knew the
trials and tribulations. I think it will get a
lot easier. ”
The business partners plan to open up a
third, larger, bar somewhere along the

applied [to work at St. Vincent de Paul].
I hadn’t worked anywhere else in my
adult life.”
He worked hard at his job as a sales
manager at an import and export com-
pany and was making a lot, but he real-
ized the work was killing him. At the
same time, he came to enjoy hearing
St. Vincent de Paul’s jail chaplain, Paul
Moriarty, offer words of wisdom every
“I realized through him that’s what I
wanted to do,” Schurr said. “I wanted to
work with my heart.”
When Moriarty died of cancer 12
years ago, Schurr was heartbroken, but
stepped up to take the role. Now, in his
work as jail chaplain at San Quentin
State Prison and at the local county
jails, Schurr said he works to make a
whole situation out of a broken one.
“It’s truly a safety net for San Mateo
County,” Schurr said.
Addiction, and the brokenness of
that, is the biggest struggle for
inmates with whom he works, said
Schurr, who was recently ordained.
“They’re tentacles that reach very
far,” he said Monday. “On a perfect day,
those can be repaired. This weekend a
person died from a relapse and I had to
talk with the mother. When people
have a need [the job is] not 9-5.”
Daly City roots
Growing up in Daly City, he had lit-
tle, so his family shopped at St.
Vincent de Paul’s thrift shop. He didn’t
have the perspective it was out of
necessity until he studied business at
San Francisco State University and his
friend was aghast that people wore
these clothes.
“I came to realize that was a blessing
because I never forgot where I came
from,” he said. “The first day in the jail,
I knew somebody on every floor from
my neighborhood. I’m a late comer —
it hit me, ‘this was your neighbor-
hood.’ We didn’t breed doctors and
lawyers. We bred thieves and that was
usually because of addiction.”
Prior to coming to St. Vincent de
Paul, Schurr volunteered at a soup
kitchen in San Francisco.
“I was working with this population
unbeknownst to me,” he said. “I know
what personal struggle and suffering is.
I learned early on I had flaws I needed to
work on.”
Coming from a dysfunctional family,
Schurr found trouble during his junior
year at Jefferson High School. He
found a final exam for one of his class-
es and tore it up, landing him in the
dean’s office.
“The dean said, ‘I can suspend you or
you can do the 4-4 plan,” Schurr said.
“Go to school for four hours a day and
work for four hours a day. In that job, I
met a man who fundamentally changed
my life forever because I was heading
to where I work.”
Finding a mentor
The man, John, was very kind to
“I thought he wanted something,”
Schurr said. “He never did. Eight
months in, the owner’s son yelled at
John. Yelling was communication in
my house, but something inside of me
snapped. I wanted to hurt him (the
owner’s son) and I asked John, ‘do you
want me to hurt him?’”
Schurr was caught off guard when
John told him to pray for the ware-
house owner’s son, who he said was
under a lot of pressure.
“I was pissed, but he was probably
the only man in my life I respected,” he
said. “I tossed and turned all that night
and thought, ‘John’s right.’ I asked
him, ‘why are you so nice to every-
one?’ He said he was nice to everyone
because of his religion.”
At age 16, Schurr thought he might
have to quit the job because he thought
it would get weird with John because of
John’s disclosure about being reli-
“I decided that I was going to become
Catholic that day,” Schurr said.
As a child, Schurr had gone to
church, but he said he would just go so
he wouldn’t get hit.
“I equated that (going to church) with
getting hit,” he said. “I really started
going and listening and paying atten-
John and Schurr remained friends for
30 years until John died. After spend-
ing years trying to find John’s grave,
Schurr finally discovered it two years
after his death. The veterans group had
taken his body since he served as a
medic in World War II, during which he
earned a Purple Heart.
“He never talked about it,” Schurr
said. “I thought, ‘you’re still teaching
me humility and you’re gone.’ I’d hope
one day I’d have that.”
‘Fulfilling’ work
Those at St. Vincent de Paul have
good things to say about Schurr.
“What I like about Deacon Marty is
that he really gets that life is about
‘acting justly, loving tenderly and
walking humbly with your God’ Micah
6,” Executive Director Lorraine
Moriarty wrote in an email. “In all
aspects of St. Vincent de Paul
Restorative Justice Ministry, Marty, in
caring and often humorous ways, pro-
vides a ministry of honest accompani-
ment. His is a hope-filled presence to
those often despairing. This makes a
difference in their lives and because his
life is about doing good for the Lord
this makes him good to be around!”
Schurr himself loves the work.
“It’s fulfilling,” he said. “It’s an hour
to walk with somebody and be a part of
their struggle and trying to help. Their
gift is their courage to try and change.
It’s very difficult for any of us to
change; it feels that way. ”
It’s hard to describe what it’s like to
work with those who are suffering, he
“It’s like a hospice worker trying to
explain what it’s like to be with some-
one who is dying,” he said. “I don’t
have many hard days.”
He tries not to bring his work home
with him, but at times it is difficult,
especially when he was contacted last
weekend by the mother whose daughter
had died.
“There’s no words to comfort some-
one in that state,” he said. “The people
I walk with help me. I owe them a great
debt. … Sometimes our humanity is all
we can be. I trust just being present is
sometimes enough.”
St. Vincent de Paul is a phenomenal
asset to those in need, he said.
“It’s an honor to work here,” Schurr
said. “Few nonprofits have full-time
restorative justice programs.”

request to discount his previous crimi-
nal convictions. The ruling means
Sanders will receive a life sentence;
the only unknown is what the determi-
nate time portion will be for the multi-
ple felonies including 17 counts of
armed robbery. Sanders, 37, will be
sentenced Aug. 8.
Sanders robbed the PetSmart at 3520
El Camino Real in August 2011 and
returned Oct. 8, 2011, when he shot
the same 34-year-old male cashier with
a silver revolver. The bullet severed
his femoral artery.
Sanders also allegedly robbed or
attempted to rob a Beverages and More
in Colma, a GameStop in Colma and
other businesses in San Francisco and
Santa Clara counties. Authorities esti-
mate he may have committed more
than 30 similar robberies throughout
the Bay Area. Authorities apprehended
Sanders in Alameda County.
Fingerprints collected from the Oct.
30, 2011, armed robbery of a San Jose
PetSmart linked him to the local cases
In February, jurors deliberated three
days before convicting Sanders of the
robberies and also eight counts of
being a felon in possession of a
weapon, five counts of assault with a
firearm, seven counts of false impris-

bery, one count of making threats and
one count of mayhem. Cretan also

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Variety is the spice of life.
Get involved in as many activities and recreational
pastimes as you can. The new experiences and
friendships that result will keep you stimulated.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Make sure you are
compatible with the other party before forming a
partnership. Working methods, time management
and response to pressure should all be evaluated. It’s
better to be safe than sorry.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — A loved one could use a
little nurturing. Be sensitive to the feelings of others,
and you will gain respect and an ally who will back you
when needed. Show compassion.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You can smooth
out business relationships by learning more about
your colleagues. Be friendly and approachable, but
keep your personal details out of the conversation.
Instead, listen and learn.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Your popularity
is growing. Although you have set a high standard,
continue with your self-improvement plans. You
will be admired for the positive personal changes
you undertake.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — An unsettling
confrontation can be expected. Complete as much
as possible before someone challenges you or goads
you into an argument. You can avoid trouble if you
keep a low profile.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Some positive
changes are heading your way. An old friend is likely to
surface. Reconnecting with a phone call or email will
remind you of the good times you had together.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You need to take
decisive action regarding a situation that you’re
currently facing. You have everything you need, but
your dreams will not come true until you have put
your plans in motion.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Consider minor
changes to your home or lifestyle. Look at your
options before spending a lot of money on something.
Once you have investigated the possibilities, you will
make an ideal choice.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — If you are looking to
move forward in your career, find out everything
you can about your chosen field. Social media,
libraries or even your workplace will help you to
prepare your strategy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Someone has been
singing your praises. You must be ready to take action
and prove your worth. The window of opportunity for
positive change will be small. Take the plunge.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Your creative juices are
flowing. Keep yourself active mentally and physically,
and get the most out of your day. Take on new
challenges and activities in order to feel motivated.

If you object to the granting of the peti-
tion, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hear-
ing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.

claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of

tive, as defined in section 58(b) of the

from the date of mailing or personal de-
livery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal au-
thority may affect your rights as a cred-
itor. You may want to consult with an at-
torney knowledgeable in California law.
