San Bruno officials called on Gov. Jerry
Brown to remove California Public Utilities
Commission President Michael Peevey
from office, alleging that recently disclosed
emails show “illegal and illicit” private
communications with PG&E.
The commission is conducting three pro-
ceedings investigating
PG&E’s role in a 2010
natural-gas pipeline
explosion that killed
eight people and injured
66 others in San Bruno.
San Bruno officials say
that emails released by
the CPUC last week show
at least 41 private emails
between PG&E officials
and Peevey related to reg-
ulatory matters, includ-
ing a proposed fine for
PG&E that could amount
to more than $2 billion.
The emails “revealed
the extent of a relation-
ship much deeper and
more shocking than
even we originally feared,” Mayor Jim
Ruane said at a news conference Monday
morning outside the CPUC’s headquarters in
San Francisco.
The confidential emails “demonstrate that
the CPUC process is corrupted and that the
agency has lost its ability to carry out its
mandated regulatory functions as a watch-

ing the family’s 4-month-old puppy for a
month in front of his young daughter
before eventually suffocating the animal
pleaded no contest to felony animal cru-
elty and misdemeanor child endanger-
ment.
In return for changing his earlier not
guilty plea, Alan Velete, 32, was promised no more than
three years in prison when sentenced Aug. 28. However,
defense attorney Naresh Rajan is hopeful his client will be
admitted into Pathways, the county’s mental health court.

of saving 8 billion gallons of water by the

Groups seek probe
into pepper spray use
SAN DIEGO — California civil rights
organizations filed a complaint Monday
with the Justice Department asking for
a federal investigation into the use of
pepper spray in San Diego County’s
juvenile detention facilities.
Pepper spray use is rampant against
youth offenders, including those at risk
of suicide or self-harm, according to the
complaint jointly filed by San
Francisco-based Youth Law Center,
California Rural Legal Assistance Inc.
and a San Diego-area coalition of com-
munity organizations, including the
San Diego La Raza Lawyers
Association.
Officials also have used pepper spray
against youth who failed to follow ver-
bal instructions and on minors with
sensitive medical conditions, accord-
ing to the complaint.
Justice Department and county offi-
cials could not be immediately reached
for comment.
Youth Law Center attorney Sue Burrell
said the complaint is needed because
San Diego County Probation is out of
touch with national standards.
“This is a county that professes to be
interested in positive youth develop-
ment and trauma-informed care, but they
are spraying young people as though
they were ants,” she said in a statement.
Youth Law Center said incident
reports for 2012 and 2013 showed pep-
per spray was being used routinely on
suicide watch. The center’s attorneys
said they met last year with San Diego
County Probation Department staff
about their concerns and were told
authorities were using pepper spray
when necessary.
Witnesses: Thunderstorm
hit beach without warning
LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles’ popu-
lar Venice Beach teemed with people
enjoying a weekend outing on the
boardwalk and sand when lifeguards and
other witnesses say a rare summer thun-
derstorm hit without warning, produc-
ing lightning that injured or rattled
more than a dozen people and left a 21-
year-old man dead.
The witnesses said the strike hit with
a tremendous boom about 2:30 p.m.
Sunday, rattling buildings and shower-
ing a lifeguard headquarters with sparks.
“The first knowledge they had was
when the lightning hit,” Capt. Danny
Douglas of the Venice lifeguard station
said Monday.
The 21-year-old was rushed unrespon-
sive to a hospital after the strike and
later died. Coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed
Winter identified him as Nick Fagnano
of Los Angeles. Some witnesses said
Fagnano had been in the water when the
lightning hit, but authorities couldn’t
confirm that.
The lightning came as some 30,000
people were enjoying a day at the city’s
funky bohemian beach noted for its jug-
glers, skaters, medical marijuana deal-
ers and boardwalk preachers and huck-
sters.
Swimmers cooling off on a muggy
day, volleyball players on the sand and
people strolling the famous boardwalk
were jolted.
Pool water dumped in
South Tahoe; resort fires three
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — Officials at a
South Lake Tahoe resort say they fired
three employees who improperly
drained 15,000 to 20,000 gallons of
chlorinated pool water into a storm-
water basin.
State environmental regulators said
they started an investigation last
month after the Lake Tahoe Vacation
Resort self-reported the June 25 inci-
dent.
Alan Miller, senior water resource
control engineer for the California
Regional Water Quality Control Board,
said there doesn’t appear to have been
any immediate environmental impact.
He said it’s unlikely the resort will face
fines because it has taken internal steps
to prevent similar incidents.
“It’s definitely something we would
not authorize because of the chlorine,
which is toxic to aquatic life,” Miller
said. “What they did was not proper. At
the same time, their remedies may be
sufficient.”

Cherry tomatoes and brussels sprouts
might not exactly sound appealing to your
average 5-year-old, but one San Mateo
County organization wants to change chil-
dren’s attitudes toward fruit and vegetables
by having children grow and taste their own
food.
The HEAL Project, a nonprofit run out of
Half Moon Bay, already operates a school
farm that allows students to have a hand in
growing and preparing food, but it’s also
partnering with the Coastside Children’s
Program summer camp this year to get
campers tasting fresh produce. This is part
of the project’s Engaged Active Agricultural
Tasters, or EAAT, program.
“We’re excited to collaborate with The
HEALProject on the EAATprogram,” Agnes
Chan, executive director of Coastside
Children’s Programs, said in a prepared
statement. “It’s an amazing opportunity to
counter the incessant marketing of sugary
drinks, fatty snacks and processed foods to
children and parents by offering healthful
and tasty choices.”
At the end of the camp day, campers par-
ticipate in a 30-minute tasting. The group
provides a California specialty crop tasting
of the week. This week, students will get to
try blackberries. EAAT offers the campers
raw vegetables or fruit and also prepares
something made from that. Last week, stu-
dents tried tomatoes, along with bruschetta.
“The kids really loved it,” HEAL
Executive Director Sher Quaday. “They were
a little bit reluctant to try it at first, but
many really liked it.”
The EAAT program also serves up locally
grown fruit and vegetables at Hatch and
Farallone View elementary schools and to
students throughout San Mateo County who
visit the 5-year-old HEAL farm. Each EAAT
program includes nutrition and agriculture
education and a tasting where kids can vote
whether they liked what they tasted and
whether they’d want to eat it again.
“We know that if kids are able to taste and
eat fresh fruits and vegetables, they’re more
likely to give a fruit or vegetable a try, ”
Quaday said.
HEAL also says that children who have a
hand in growing and preparing food are
more likely to enjoy that food, eat it again
and influence buying choices at home.
EAAT is funded through a three-year
$256,308 grant from the California
Department of Agriculture California
Specialty Crop Block Grant program.
Tastings have been in place for five years.
Free field trips are offered to schools with 50
percent or more of students who receive free
or reduced-priced lunches.
“I would like to get more schools
involved from over the hill,” Quaday said.
The HEAL Project has more new program-
ming to look forward to as well. The Kaiser
Family Foundation granted HEAL $20,000
to host education programs at Spruce,
Martin and Los Ceritos schools in South
San Francisco. HEAL also offers its own
summer camp program at its farm and each
week provides a specific theme, such as “Al
Fresco Culinary Academy” and “Flowers and
Fairies,” in an experimental outdoor learn-
ing environment. Campers explore plant
and animal life, create art, explore science
and work with food.
Weekly tastings at the Coastside
Children’s Programs camp run through Aug.
14.

Elderly husband pleads not guilty
to stabbing wife for ‘bugging’ him
By Michelle Durand
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
An 84-year-old Pacific man who allegedly stabbed his
wife seven times because she was “bugging” him and he did-
n’t think she loved him anymore pleaded
not guilty Monday to attempted murder,
domestic violence and assault charges.
Tony Gocksue Lee made his third court
appearance since being arrested the
evening of July 13 after Pacifica police
found the injured woman inside their
home bleeding on the dining room floor.
Aided by a Taishun interpreter, Lee
pleaded not guilty and waived his right to
a preliminary hearing. He returns to court
Aug. 14 to pick a date for that hearing.
Pacifica police arrested Lee after a family friend with plans
to visit the couple called them after phoning the Lee house-
hold to confirm and reportedly being told by the defendant
not to bother bringing over dinner because he already killed
his wife with a knife for “bugging him” and he planned to
die, too.
Defense attorney Paul Cummins declined to address the
alleged details shared by authorities, saying he prefers to
try the case in court rather than the press.
Lee’s wife was stabbed three times in the neck, twice in
the abdomen, once in the right thigh and once in the left
hand. As of last reports, she remains in critical condition.
The couple has been married 54 years and has no docu-
mented history of violence. They have three children.
“No one can believe this happened,” Cummins said,
describing his client as a “good citizen” who worked for the
U.S. Postal Service and fought in Korea with the U.S. Army.
Lee remains in custody without bail and is on suicide
watch at the jail, Cummins said.
If convicted, he’s facing roughly 12 years in prison,
Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti said.
Police seek owner of three unique Japanese pistols
Police are hoping to identify the owner of three collecta-
ble Japanese pistols recovered during the arrest of a con-
victed felon in South San Francisco on Sunday, July 20.
John Frick, a transient, was contacted around 10 a.m. on
the 200 block of Kenwood Way and found to be in posses-
sion of the three pistols that did not belong to him, accord-
ing to South San Francisco police.
Frick claimed to have found the pistols in a nearby dump-
ster and was arrested for being a felon in possession of a
firearm, according to police.
The pistols were located with a receipt that was dated in
the late 1990s and provided the buyer’s information.
However, further investigation revealed the owner listed on
the receipt has been deceased since 2000, according to
police.
Police are now searching for the current owner of the three
collectable Japanese pistols and ask anyone with informa-
tion to contact South San Francisco police at (650) 877-
5991.

Local brief
By Fenit Nirappil
and Sudhin Thanwala
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SHINGLE SPRINGS — A private
drone trying to record footage of a
Northern California wildfire nearly
hindered efforts to attack the flames
from the air, but firefighters made
enough progress to allow most of the
1,200 people under evacuation orders
to return home Monday.
An unmanned aircraft that aimed to
get video of the blaze burning near
vineyards in the Sierra Nevada
foothills east of Sacramento was
sighted Sunday, two days after the fire
broke out, California Department of
Forestry and Fire Protection spokes-
woman Lynne Tolmachoff said.
Authorities told the man control-
ling the drone to stop it from flying
because of the potential danger to fire-
fighting planes. The man, whom
Tolmachoff did not identify, was not
cited.
“This is the first one that I’m aware
of,” she said. “These unmanned aircraft
are becoming very popular with peo-
ple, and there’s a possibility we will
see more of them.”
Crews held the fire to a little under 6
square miles overnight, increasing
containment to 65 percent, state fire
Battalion Chief Scott McLean said. By
Monday evening, most evacuees were
permitted to return home except those
who lived in a roughly square mile
patch of land.
“We’re not going to get complacent,
but it’s looking very good,” McLean
said.
Amy Russell, 35, was among those
given the OK to go home. The location
of her home on the outskirts of the fire
gave her hope it was still standing.
“It’d be very hard to lose everything.
It’s a fixer-upper house, so we could
rebuild it if it burned down, but it would
be a real emotional loss,” said Russell,
who was at a Red Cross shelter set up at
a high school with her two daughters,
Abigail, 3, and Anneliese, 2.

MEXICO CITY — California Gov.
Jerry Brown took a not-so-subtle dig
at Texas’ decision to deploy National
Guard troops to the border, saying
Monday he expects it to be a short-
lived measure and that “wiser minds
will prevail.”
Brown is in Mexico for three days of
meetings, focusing on migration,
trade, investment
and environmental
cooperation.
At a news confer-
ence with Mexican
Foreign Relations
Secretary Jose
Antonio Meade,
Brown said the
immigration over-
load of thousands of
Central American youths at the border
should be seen as a humanitarian issue.
The U.S. is coping with a dramatic
increase in the number of unaccompa-
nied children attempting to cross the
border, coming mainly from Honduras,
Guatemala and El Salvador.
Meade said he and Brown agree that
the use of law-enforcement or military
agencies “is never justified in cases
where children are concerned” unless
they are providing medical or logisti-
cal aid.

Man alleged to
have beaten priest
Aparoled sex offender accused of repeated-
ly punching a Burlingame priest who asked
him to leave the grounds
of St. Catherine of Siena
Catholic Church because
he was smoking may not
be mentally fit to stand
trial, according to his
attorney.
The defense for David
Donald Lewis raised ques-
tions about his 43-year-
old client’s competency
while in court to enter a
plea and potentially set a trial date. Instead,
criminal proceedings were put on hold while
two court-appointed doctors evaluate his
ability to aid in his defense at trial. If found
unfit, he will be committed to a state mental
facility.
Burlingame police arrested Lewis June 11
after finding him in the vicinity of the church
grounds where the alleged assault took place.
Church staff reportedly asked Lewis to
leave the grounds that morning because
school was in session. He reportedly walked
away from the church but stayed on the
grounds smoking. The 65-year-old priest
then approached Lewis to request he leave
and grabbed a broom out of fear when the
man approached him. Lewis allegedly
punched the priest multiple times in the face
and chest before fleeing. The priest fell and
fractured his elbow.
Lewis remains in custody on $75,000 bail.
The doctors’ conclusions are due back Sept.
9.
Man arrested for
alleged robbery attempt
A man tried to hold up a South San
Francisco bank on Saturday but, aside from
some complimentary coffee and cookies, all
he got was a stay in jail, police said Monday.
The suspect, later identified as Bryan
Jensen, 42, walked into the Wells Fargo at
333 Linden Ave. around 10 a.m. July 26 and
had free coffee and cookies before walking
over to the teller and saying, “Give me all
your money,” according to police.
The suspect told the teller again, “This is a
holdup” and kept demanding all of the bank’s
money until a manager intervened and the
suspect left, police said.
Police arrived shortly afterward and the
bank employees gave officers the suspect’s
description and pointed them in his direc-
tion.
Jensen was detained a short time later and
arrested on suspicion of the attempted rob-
bery, police said.
On Monday, prosecutors formally charged
Jensen and he pleaded not guilty. He asked
for a court-appointed attorney and returns to
court Aug. 8 for a preliminary hearing.
He remains in custody on $50,000 bail.

Pacifica mom arrested
for DUI, child endangerment
The California Highway Patrol arrested a
Pacifica woman Sunday evening on suspi-
cion of DUI and child endangerment after she
fled officers at 90 mph on Highway 101 in
Marin County, a CHP officer said.
Ana Soledad Lopez, 32, was driving on
southbound Highway 101 near the
Marinwood Avenue off-ramp around 5:30
p.m., CHP Officer Andrew Barclay said.
An officer tracking the speed of vehicles
pursued Lopez’s SUV as it reached 90 mph,
made erratic lane changes, cut off vehicles
and caused other vehicles to make evasive
maneuvers to avoid collisions, Barclay said.
Lopez pulled to the side of the highway
near the San Pedro Road exit in San Rafael,
but sped away as a CHP officer approached
her vehicle, Barclay said.
Other CHP officers joined the pursuit and
Lopez pulled off the road near the Lincoln
Avenue off-ramp, according to Barclay.
Officers found Lopez’s 6-year-old daughter
with a blanket pulled up to her eyes in the
right rear seat of the SUV, Barclay said. The
girl was taken to the CHP office in Corte
Madera where her father took custody of her,
Barclay said.
Lopez was arrested and booked in Marin
County Jail on suspicion of felony child
endangerment, failing to comply with a
peace officer’s order, DUI, DUI with blood-
alcohol content above 0.08 percent and
enhancements of DUI with a minor passen-
ger under age 14 and DUI with a blood-alco-
hol content of 0.15 percent or greater,
Barclay said.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Signaling an
escalation of Israel’s Gaza operation, Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Israelis
Monday to be ready for a “prolonged” war,
and the military warned Palestinians in
three large neighborhoods to leave their
homes and head immediately for Gaza City.
In central Gaza City early Tuesday, at least
two major explosions hit a media complex
housing the offices of Hamas-run Al Aqsa
television and radio. The blasts shook sur-
rounding buildings and started a fire on the
roof of the office block, one of Gaza’s
tallest.
AP video showed a massive flash as the
first strike hit the top of the building, send-
ing debris raining down. The building also
houses offices of a number of Arab satellite
television news channels.
A loud explosion was also heard within
the Abu Khadra govern-
ment complex in Gaza
City.
The strikes came during
a heavy night of bom-
bardment, with Israeli
illumination flares and
repeated explosions
lighting up the Gaza sky-
line and turning it
orange.
The overnight strikes
came after a day of heavy Hamas-Israeli
fighting in which nine children were killed
by a strike on a Gaza park where they were
playing, according to Palestinian health
officials — a tragedy that each side blamed
on the other.
Israeli tanks also resumed heavy shelling
in border areas of Gaza, killing five people,
including three children and a 70-year-old
woman, and wounding 50 in the town of
Jebaliya, which was among the areas warned
to evacuate, the Red Crescent said.

WASHINGTON — The last time
Republicans unleashed impeachment pro-
ceedings against a Democratic president,
they lost five House seats in an election
they seemed primed to win handily.
Memories of Bill Clinton and the cam-
paign of 1998 may help explain why
Speaker John Boehner and the current GOP
leadership want no part of such talk now,
although conservatives increasingly clamor
for it. And also why President Barack
Obama’s White House seems almost eager to
stir the impeachment pot three months
before midterm elections.
Republicans have already “opened the
door for impeachment” with their plans to
sue the president over allegedly failing to
carry out the health care law, White House
aide Dan Pfeiffer told reporters. In some-
thing of a dare last week, he also said any
further action Obama takes on his own on
immigration will “up the likelihood” of a
GOP-led move to remove Obama from
office.
House Democrats’ campaign committee
used reports of tea party Republicans meet-
ing to discuss impeachment in an emailed
fundraising plea sent Sunday. They warned
“the fate of Obama’s presidency is at stake.”
Pfeiffer and Democratic fundraisers aren’t
privy to the inner workings of the House
Republican leadership. Boehner, who is,
insists at every public opportunity that the
lawsuit is one thing, impeachment is anoth-
er — and not on the table.

WASHINGTON — Medicare’s financial
future is looking brighter despite a growing
wave of baby boomers reaching retirement.
Getting relief from a slowdown in health
care spending, the program’s giant hospital
trust fund won’t be exhausted until 2030, the
government said Monday. That’s four years
later than last year’s estimate.
As for Social Security, its massive retire-
ment program will remain solvent until
2034, although disability benefits are in
more immediate danger. The disability trust
fund now is projected to run dry in just two
years. At that point, unless Congress acts,
the program will collect only enough pay-
roll taxes to pay 81 percent of benefit s.
Trustees issued their annual report
Monday on the financial health of the gov-
ernment’s two largest benefit programs,
which together accounted for 41 percent of
all federal spending last year. Though both
are “fundamentally secure,” said Treasury
Secretary Jacob Lew, “The reports also
remind us of something we all understand:
We must reform these programs if we want to
keep them sound for future generations.”

WASHINGTON — The Obama administra-
tion pushed back strongly Monday at a tor-
rent of Israeli criticism over Secretary of
State John Kerry’s latest bid to secure a
cease-fire with Hamas, accusing some in
Israel of launching a “misinformation cam-
paign” against the top American diplomat.
“It’s simply not the way partners and
allies treat each other,” State Department
spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
Her comments were echoed by the White
House, where National Security Adviser
Susan Rice said the U.S. was “dismayed” by
mischaracterizations of Kerry’s efforts.
Israeli media reports have cast Kerry as
seeking a cease-fire that is more favorable to
Hamas and being dismissive of key Israeli
concerns.
Kerry himself, in a speech to the Center
for American Progress,
noted the criticism but did
not give ground.
“Make no mistake,
when the people of Israel
are rushing to bomb shel-
ters, when innocent
Israeli and Palestinian
teenagers are abducted
and murdered, when hun-
dreds of innocent civil-
ians have lost their lives, I will and we will
make no apologies for our engagement,” he
said.
The coordinated pushback in Washington
came amid growing U.S. frustration with
Israel as Palestinian civilian casualties
mount amid a sustained Israeli air and ground
war in the Gaza Strip. In recent days, U.S.
officials have been using subtle yet notice-
ably tougher language in pressing Israel to
accept an immediate and unconditional
humanitarian cease-fire.
U.S. Court: Virginia
marriage is for all lovers
RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia’s same-sex
marriage ban was ruled unconstitutional on
Monday in the first such decision by a feder-
al appellate court in the South.
“We recognize that same-sex marriage
makes some people deeply uncomfortable.
However, inertia and apprehension are not
legitimate bases for denying same-sex cou-
ples due process and equal protection of the
laws,” Judge Henry F. Floyd wrote.
The 2-1 ruling applies throughout the cir-
cuit that also includes West Virginia,
Maryland, and the Carolinas, where the
attorneys general split Monday on what
they’ll do next.
Virginians voted 57 percent to 43 percent
in 2006 to amend their constitution to ban
gay marriage. Virginia laws prohibit recog-
nizing same-sex marriages performed in
other states.

SHAKHTARSK, Ukraine — Panicky resi-
dents in an eastern Ukrainian town fled their
homes Monday carrying a few possessions
in plastic bags and small suitcases as shells
exploded in the distance, fighting that also
prevented an international police team from
reaching the area where the Malaysia
Airlines plane was downed.
“Mom, hang in there,” exclaimed a weep-
ing woman who was fleeing Shakhtarsk with
her mother. Associated Press reporters saw a
high-rise apartment block in the town being
hit by at least two rounds of artillery.
The fighting there and elsewhere in the area
kept Dutch and Australian police for the sec-
ond day from reaching the site where the
plane crashed after being shot from the sky.
They had planned to begin searching for
remaining bodies and gathering forensic evi-
dence and the delay strained tempers among
international observers.
“There is a job to be done,” said Alexander
Hug, the deputy head of a monitoring team
from the Organization for Security and
Cooperation in Europe. “We are sick and tired
of being interrupted by gunfights, despite the
fact that we have agreed that there should be a
ceasefire.”
The plane was downed on July 17 while fly-
ing over a part of eastern Ukraine where gov-
ernment forces and pro-Russia separatist
rebels have been fighting for months.
Ukrainian and Western officials say the plane
was shot down by a rebel missile, most like-
ly by mistake, and that Russia supplied the
weapon or trained rebels to use it.

BAGHDAD — Residents of Mosul have
watched helplessly as extremists ruling the
northern Iraqi city blew up some of their
most beloved landmarks and shrines to
impose a stark vision of Islam. Next up for
destruction, they feared: the Crooked
Minaret, a more than 840-year-old tower
that leans like Italy’s Tower of Pisa.
But over the weekend, residents pushed
back. When fighters from the Islamic State
group loaded with heavy explosives con-
verged on the site, Mosulis living nearby
rushed to the courtyard below the minaret,
sat on the ground and linked arms to form a
human chain to protect it, two residents who
witnessed the event told the Associated
Press on Monday.
They told the fighters, If you blow up the
minaret, you’ll have to kill us too, the wit-
nesses said.
The militants backed down and left, said
the witnesses, who spoke on condition of
anonymity for fear of retaliation from the
militants.
But residents are certain the militants will
try again. Over the past two weeks, the
extremists ruling Iraq’s second largest city
have shrugged off previous restraint and
embarked on a brutal campaign to purge
Mosul of anything that challenges their rad-
ical interpretation of Islam. The militants
— though Sunnis — target shrines revered
by other Sunni Muslims because the sites
are dedicated to popular religious figures. In
the radicals’ eyes, that commits one of the
worst violations of Islam: encouraging wor-
ship of others besides God.
The scene on Saturday was a startling
show of bravery against a group that has
shown little compunction against killing
anyone who resists it.

Oil depot ablaze
amid clashes in Libyan capital
CAIRO — A fire at the oil depot for the
airport in Libya’s capital raged out of con-
trol Monday after being struck in the
crossfire of warring militias battling for
control of the airfield, the latest violence
to plague the country as foreigners flee the
chaos.
Libya’s interim government said in a
statement that the fire could trigger a
“humanitarian and environmental disaster”
in Tripoli, appealing for “international
help” to extinguish the inferno. It did not
say what it specifically needed.
The blaze had spread to a second depot by
Monday afternoon, the government said. It
was unclear if there were any injuries from
the fire.
“The government appeals to all concerned
parties to immediately stop firing as the sit-
uation has become very grave,” the govern-
ment said.

GENEVA — The downing of Malaysia
Airlines Flight 17 may be a war crime, U.N.
High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi
Pillay said Monday.
Pillay, the U.N.’s top human rights offi-
cial, called for a thorough investigation
into the violation of international law that
occurred when the flight was shot down with
a surface-to-air missile over a part of eastern
Ukraine controlled by pro-Russian sepa-
ratists on July 17, killing all 298 people on
board.
Pillay’s comments coincided with a new
report by her office that says at least 1,129
people had been killed and 3,442 wounded
in Ukraine’s fighting as of Saturday, and
more than 100,000 have fled the violence
since April.
“This violation of international law,
given the prevailing circumstances, may
amount to a war crime,” Pillay said of the
downed jetliner, which U.S. and Ukrainian
officials say was shot down by a missile
from rebel territory, most likely by mis-
take.
“It is imperative that a prompt, thorough,
effective, independent
and impartial investiga-
tion be conducted into
this event,” she said.
Fighting over the
weekend prevented a
team of Dutch and
Australian police officers
from visiting the crash
site to start searching for
evidence and the remain-
ing bodies. The Dutch government said a
team of 26 forensic experts left Donetsk for
the crash site on Monday.
A full-fledged investigation still has not
begun at the crash site. Some bodies are
still unrecovered and the site has been
forensically compromised.
The report by the U.N.’s team of 39 field
monitors in Ukraine says there has been an
alarming buildup of heavy weaponry in
civilian areas of Donetsk and Luhansk —
including artillery, tanks, rockets and mis-
siles that are being used to inflict increasing
casualties and damage to civilian infrastruc-
ture.
The report says such attacks could amount
to violations of international humanitarian
law.

Crossing guards
needed for Millbrae
Editor,
Crosswalks were painted and then a
mobile electronic sign was placed at
the intersection of La Cruz Avenue and
El Camino Real to assist the patrons of
the Tai Wu restaurant crossing El
Camino Real. Then, flashing lights
were installed to alert vehicle drivers of
pedestrians using the crosswalk. The
lights are activated by the pedestrian
pushing a button prior to using the
crosswalk.
On several occasions, I have noticed
pedestrians using the crosswalk, but
the flashing lights were not activated. I
even noticed one of Tai Wu’s employ-
ees crossing without using the lights.
This brings to question, does the city
of Millbrae need to employ a crossing
guard to assist the patrons of Tai Wu?
Why not? Millbrae has already bent
over backwards and allowed Tai Wu to
manipulate the Millbrae city codes.
What’s a few more dollars out of the
city coffers? The intersections of
Millwood Drive, Park Boulevard and
Ludeman Drive have people crossing
from various businesses and residential
areas. These intersections are away
from downtown, so traffic tends to be
more relaxed. Drivers are not aware of
people using the crosswalks. Aperson
using the Millwood Drive crossing was
struck by a vehicle and killed. The west
side, Park Boulevard, where Capuchino
Market is located, happens to be a
blind crossing. Vehicles park in front
of the crosswalk and pedestrians can’t
be seen by southbound motorists.
I don’t see any pedestrian assistance
at any of these dangerous intersec-
tions. Maybe there just aren’t enough
tax dollars generated in those areas to
warrant such an expense? Maybe the
businesses and homeowners should
take up a collection and find out who
needs to be paid off to get the crossing
assistance lights installed? I certainly
don’t feel like the Millbrae leaders are
leading us in the direction of our best
interests.

Millbrae City Council
Editor,
What in the world is the council
thinking about? First of all, giving the
Asian restaurant permission to build
this huge restaurant on El Camino Real
with no parking is ridiculous. Where
were your thinking caps? Now you
want to give our city manager a huge
raise — a raise from $192,996 to
$235,800. I am reading this in the
Daily Journal. I am a 51-year resident
and a soon-to-be 94-year-old Navy vet-
eran. Please council, show some com-
mon sense.

Cutting water usage at CSM
Editor,
There is no doubt the College of San
Mateo president can make a much-
needed statement of water conservation
by letting the campus’ water-hogging
lawns go brown. The irrigation water
routinely runs over concrete sidewalks,
and the winds blow the water fountains
far beyond the pools. Such a waste.
Is the president willing to step up
and show his courage and commitment
to cutting irrigation water usage? Like
many others I have talked with, I hope
so.

Pick the birthdays
worthy of remembrance
Editor,
I glanced at the “Birthdays” item in
the July 21 edition of the Daily
Journal. Each name is some entertain-
ment person with most having to be
explained as to what band or which
movie/TVshow.
You must think we are pretty vapid,
but some readers might aim a bit high-
er: Jean Picard, Ernest Hemingway,
Janet Reno, Garry Trudeau or any one
of our troops overseas with a birthday
that day. They made a difference and are
worth of remembrance, the Daily
Journal’s picks, not so much.

McDowell departure
Editor,
Good riddance to Mr. McDowell,
“Opportunities” column in the July 26
edition of the Daily Journal. What’s
the point of having a total ideologue
contribute an opinion? We got the gist
some time ago: Democrats: Bad, Taxes:
Bad, Public anything: Bad, Private
anything: Good.
Jim Elsworth
San Mateo
Mr. McDowell
Editor,
Whenever I read a column by Mr.
McDowell lambasting Obama or some
other Democrat, one word comes to
mind: hypocrite. He claims that the
older democrats need to be put out to
pasture because they are out of touch
with the average Californian. Boy, if
that doesn’t describe the Republican
party, I don’t know what does. The
conservatives (Republicans) got their
butts kicked in the last two elections
because most people in this state know
the Republican party doesn’t care about
them. His columns are always amus-
ing, but not because of his sense of
humor.
S.F. Ortiz
Redwood City
The other side of the coin
Editor,
John McDowell in his final column
neglected to mention some other
wealthy politicians. Former
Republican governor Schwarzenegger,
while in office, had an estimated net
worth of $200 million-$400 million;
Republican representative Vernon
Buchanan of Florida has an estimated
net worth of $350 million;
Representative Darrell Issa,
Republican of California, has an esti-
mated net worth of $448 million; and
Representative Michael McCaul,
Republican of Texas, has an estimated
net worth of $380 million, to name but
a few.
Also in perspective: Republican
Gubernatorial Candidate Meg
Whitman’s net worth was estimated at
$1.3 billion. Today, she earns $17.6
million annually at Hewlett Packard.
(Far less than Lawrence Ellison of
Oracle who makes $78.4 million annu-
ally. If his work week is calculated at
40 hours that would come to
$37,692,31 an hour; these figures are
courtesy of the New York Times).

Symphatize with
the Israelis as well
Editor,
Israel and the United States believe
that every life is valuable, and every
death is tragic. It is a terrible shame
that Hamas glorifies death. In her letter
in the July 23 edition of the Daily
Journal, “The universal, priceless value
of blood,” Samia Shoman has great
sympathy for the civilian casualties of
the Hamas war, and prays for the peo-
ple of Gaza. She did not express any
corresponding sympathy for the Israeli
casualties or prayers for the people of
Israel. Hamas started the war by its fir-
ing of rockets into Israel from Gaza.
Israel accepted a cease-fire and Hamas
did not. Israel was reluctant to have the
IDF enter Gaza, but had to do it. Now,
Israel has to complete the destruction
of the vast network of tunnels in Gaza,
which are meant to have terrorists
infiltrate into Israel. The best compari-
son is the rocket bombing of London
by the Nazis, and England and the
United States fought the war until
Germany unconditionally surrendered.

It’s not to be
discounted
B
lame it on the chlorine. Typically, I admit not
being a frequent Kmart shopper. But two things
propelled me into the San Mateo outlet last
Friday after work — which on an unrelated note shows
how exciting my weekend evenings have become.
The first was the search for cheap chemicals to keep the
spa from turning into a jetted bacterial cesspool. The
amount of granules and liquids and test strips required for
this endeavor is enough to make anybody rue not paying
attention in high school chemistry and occasionally curse
paying for all the clarifiers and sanitizers and what have
you required.
Kmart, honestly, might not
be where I turn for footwear
and fashion but household
supplies and mascara work the
same no matter the name on
the price tag.
The second motivator,
which hinged on the first, was
the man dancing on the corner
outside the store twirling
around a large sign proclaim-
ing Kmart was having a
going-out-of-business sale.
The gentleman caught my
attention first with his energy. He’s obviously well-expe-
rienced, probably having perfected the act touting mat-
tress blowout sales and seasonal tax preparation services.
The “everything now 30 percent off” declaration had
been amended. The 30 was visibly amended to 40 percent.
One-third was one thing. That wasn’t much more than a
good Sunday coupon discount. But 40? Still not rock bot-
tom but 40 percent of cheap is still much better than 40
percent of expensive and assumedly the company once
offering blue light specials would be more economical
than its Target and Home Depot cohorts.
But venturing into a fire sale requires a delicate calcula-
tion. Go too soon after the store announces its upcoming
closure and save little more than tax. Go too late and
everything good is gone. Sure, the few items still taking
up shelf space, along with those shelves and brackets
themselves, will be slashed to nothing but nothing is
exactly what shoppers will find.
And in regards to my sought-after chlorine, nothing is
what I got. C’est la vie.
While I came up empty, the others scavenging through
the aisles apparently had better luck. One man had a box
full of market umbrellas. What he needed with seven
umbrellas — I counted — I’ll never know but he obvious-
ly felt the price was right. The same could be said for the
family hauling out boxes of treadmill equipment although
they looked like most of the exercise came from hauling
the gear to their waiting car.
Some of the items seemed still too expensive for a
going-out-of-business sale. I’d apparently come too soon
to get a stellar deal on beach towels and dog dental chews.
Others nearly lured me in with their cut-rate prices. Duct
tape? I do need purple patterned duct tape — don’t I? There
was only two left, next to a single lonely package of
stick-on wall hangers, but somehow I resisted.
The rows of Disney-themed outdoor solar lights looked
fairly untouched which is more than I can say about the
aisles of toiletries and cosmetics. Imagine photos of
post-bombing Gaza. You get the picture.
Shopping is always a bit of a sporting event. Holiday
season and business closure just step it up a notch, requir-
ing a pair of good shoes, a hefty dose of patience and the
ability to size up another shopper eying that bottle of
nail polish you want. There are no friends when a dollar is
at stake and a combat mentality never hurts. If you want
polite commerce, stay at home and order online.
Acashier ringing up my bucket citronella candle said
there is another month until the store closes its doors for
good. Her rolled eyes and slight grimace showed she was-
n’t really looking forward to the weeks of increasingly
lower prices to come.
Yet, there’s no way to stave off the future whether that
be the day when there’s nothing left to sell but a half-bro-
ken tiki torch and a display model Dutch oven or the day
the property’s replacement project breaks ground. One
day, long after my candle is long gone and I’ve stocked up
on water chemicals elsewhere, Kmart will be nothing but a
distant memory. And as for the mixed-use Station Park
Green taking its place? I guess time will show us what’s in
store.

Big movers

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — After dawdling
between small gains and losses in a
slow day of summer trading, the stock
market ended little changed on
Monday.
Instead of worrying about the con-
flict between Russia and Ukraine or
trouble in the world’s other hot spots,
investors appeared to sit tight.
The main reason, said Robert Pavlik,
chief market strategist at Banyan
Partners, a wealth management firm, is
that the news that’s most likely to
move the market comes out later in the
week.
On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve
wraps up a two-day meeting then issues
a statement that investors will study
for any hints about the Fed’s next inter-
est-rate move. On Friday, the govern-
ment releases its closely watched
monthly jobs report.
“If you’re a professional investor, ”
Pavlik said, “the big things you focus
on this week are what the Federal
Reserve says Wednesday and Friday’s
monthly employment report.”
A scattering of merger announce-
ments drove some trading on Monday.
Family Dollar rose the most in the
Standard & Poor’s 500 index - with a 25
percent gain — after Dollar Tree
announced plans to buy the rival dis-
count store for roughly $8.5 billion.
Family Dollar’s stock surged $15.08 to
$75.74.
Trulia jumped on news that Zillow, a
rival real-estate listing service, was
buying it for $3.5 billion. Trulia
advanced $8.69, or 15 percent, to
$65.04. Zillow picked up $1.46, or 1
percent, to $160.32.
The S&P500 index edged up 0.57 of a
point, or 0.03 percent, to close at
1,978.91.
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 22.02 points, 0.1 percent, to
16,982.59, while the Nasdaq compos-
ite slipped 4.65 points, or 0.1 percent,
to 4,444.91.
Wall Street is in the middle of second-
quarter earnings season, when big com-
panies turn in their springtime results
and tell investors how they think the
rest of the year will shape up. This
week, ExxonMobil and MasterCard are
among the heavyweights posting earn-
ings. American Express and Merck
report Tuesday.
So far, the news has been better than
many expected. Of the 229 companies
that have posted results, nearly seven
out of 10 have turned in higher profit s
than analysts projected, according to
S&P Capital IQ.
Among the handful of companies
reporting Monday, Tyson Foods
announced higher quarterly profits as
well as a plan to sell its chicken busi-
ness in Mexico and Brazil for $575 mil-
lion in cash. Tyson Foods climbed
$1.02, or 3 percent, to $40.56.
Tensions between Western powers
and Russia remained a concern for
investors. On Monday, an international
court ordered Russia to pay over $50
billion to a group of investors for the
expropriation of now-defunct oil com-
pany Yukos. The ruling comes as
European countries consider imposing
sanctions on trade in defense, technol-
ogy and other goods and restricting
access to European capital markets for
Russia’s state-owned companies.
Pavlik said most U.S. investors have
managed to set aside their worries over
world politics and focus on the improv-
ing economy, though the conflicts
could still rattle markets
“I think the market is doing what it
should be doing,” he said. “It’s not get-
ting sucked into all the bad news out
there. Russia is lobbing bombs into
Ukraine, and that appears like it could
spiral out of control. The Middle East
looks out of control. But the stock mar-
ket is trading near an all-time high.”
In other trading on Monday, France’s
CAC 40 rose 0.3 percent while
Germany’s DAX shed 0.5 percent.
Britain’s FTSE 100 slipped 0.1 percent.
News that profits at China’s industri-
al enterprises soared 17.9 percent in
June over a year earlier suggested that
the world’s No. 2 economy has stabi-
lized and gave Asian markets a boost.
China’s benchmark Shanghai
Composite Index surged 2.4 percent.
Stocks pause as traders await economic news

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN FRANCISCO — Major U.S. compa-
nies are starting to reap their most rapid
growth in fertile lands of opportunity far
from home.
Technology trendsetters Apple Inc.,
Google Inc., Facebook Inc. and Netflix Inc.
all mined foreign countries to produce earn-
ings or revenue that exceeded analysts’ pro-
jections in their latest quarters. Prodded by
the steadily rising demand for Internet
access and online services in developing
countries, these technology companies will
likely be wading even deeper into overseas
markets for years to come.
“The philosophy is to start your growth
in the states and then take your fight over-
seas,” says BGC Financial analyst Colin
Gillis. “That’s what the big guys are
doing.”
The intensifying international focus
extends beyond technology. Century-old
companies such as Coca-Cola Co. and Ford
Motor Co. also are hoping to make more
money in countries including China and
India.
Few U.S. industries are tying their for-
tunes to overseas markets as aggressively
as the technology sector, where new sources
of revenue are often just a matter of equip-
ping people with a computing device and an
Internet connection.
Soaring sales of iPhones in China,
Russia, India and Brazil during the April-
June period helped Apple overcome soften-
ing demand for the device in the U.S. and
Europe, where consumers seem to be more
interested in waiting for the autumn release
of a new iPhone that’s expected to feature a
larger screen.
Google generated 58 percent of its rev-
enue outside the U.S. in its second quarter,
the highest level yet for the Internet’s most
powerful company.
Facebook already gets 55 percent of its
revenue overseas, and the growth in those
markets is outpacing by what’s happening
in the U.S. The social networking service
has attracted 1.1 billion users in foreign
markets versus 200 million in the U.S. and
Canada.
Netflix’s Internet video service added 1.1
million international subscribers, nearly
doubling the number it gained in the U.S
during the April-June quarter. The company
expects the trend to continue as Netfli x
enters six more European markets, includ-
ing France and Germany, in September.
Corporate profits will probably need to
keep rising to sustain the U.S. stock mar-
ket’s record-breaking run. The Standard &
Poor’s 500 index has already climbed near-
ly 8 percent this year, well ahead of its
average pace historically, while analysts
expect earnings to increase 8 percent this
year. Low interest rates and an improving
economy have helped to create a climate of
optimism, said Brad McMillan, chief
investment officer at Commonwealth
Financial.

NEWYORK — Virgin America’s next
destination is Wall Street.
The Burlingame-based airline filed
on Monday for an initial public offer-
ing of shares.
Virgin America Inc., which operates
out of Los Angeles and San Francisco,
flies to 22 airports in the United States
and Mexico and has a fleet of 53
planes. It is known for offering a vari-
ety of perks on its jets, including live
TV, movies, leather seats and purple
mood lighting.
But it’s still a small player. Virgi n
America carried 6.3 million passen-
gers last year, less than one percent of
the total passengers that flew on U.S.
airlines. And its fleet is a tiny fraction
of what larger carriers have. For
instance, United Airlines has more
than 1,200 aircraft in its fleet. Virgi n
America was founded in 2004 but was-
n’t approved for flying until the sum-
mer of 2007.
The company has been unprofitable
until last year, when it had earnings of
$10.1 million. In recent years, the
U.S. airline industry has posted record
profits, while Virgin America has
struggled. Since 2009 it has lost about
$407.5 million. Revenue in 2013 rose
6.9 percent to $1.42 billion from
$1.33 billion in 2012, according to
the filling.
The company licenses the Virgi n
brand name from the Virgin Group,
which was started by businessman Sir
Richard Branson. The Virgin Group’s
parent company, VX Holdings, has a
22.1 percent stake in Virgin America,
according to the filing.
Most of Virgin America’s executives
have worked at larger airlines. CEO
and President C. David Cush, who has
led the company since 2007, worked at
American Airlines for 20 years. Senior
Vice President E. Frances Fiorillo
came from Canadian Airlines. Others
have worked for Continental Airlines
and Delta Air Lines.
For the purpose of the filing with the
Securities and Exchange Commission,
the company said it could raise as much
as $115 million, but that number is
likely to change.
The company, which has its head-
quarters in Burlingame did not say
when it expects the IPO to happen,
how many shares it plans to offer, how
much each share will cost or which
exchange they will trade on.

NEW YORK — The fight for penny
pinchers is intensifying.
Dollar Tree said Monday it is buying
rival discounter Family Dollar for $8.5
billion, significantly broadening its
reach as it looks to fend off Wal-Mart,
which has been stepping up its
courtship of lower-income customers
The deal makes Dollar Tree the
biggest player in the dollar store seg-
ment, with its more than 13,000 com-
bined locations eclipsing current
leader Dollar General Corp., which has
about 11, 300.
Dollar stores grew during the reces-
sion as people across income groups
searched for cheaper options. To
attract a broader array of customers,
they also expanded their offerings to
include more groceries and brand-name
products, instead of just the party
favors and other knickknacks people
often associated with them.
More recently, however, sales at dol-
lar stores have been suffering because
the lower-income customers who go to
them are facing persistent job insta-
bility and slow wage growth in the
aftermath of the recession.
Dollar Tree steps up fight, buys Family Dollar
Zillow buying Trulia to build real estate titan
NEW YORK — Zillow and Trulia, two companies that
changed the way people shop for homes, are combining.
Real estate website operator Zillow Inc. is buying its
rival in a $3.5 billion deal that will make the biggest
player in the online real estate information market.
Zillow will also become king of real estate listings
available on smartphones and tablets — the fastest grow-
ing area for listings. Both Zillow and Trulia were founded
nearly a decade ago and have capitalized on Americans’
increasing preference for researching purchases, including
homes, online, rather than relying solely on a real estate
agent.

The Joe DiMaggio Baseball League World
Series is in full swing at Half Moon Bay High
School, but San Carlos and Daly City are the
only two Peninsula teams left standing in the
10-team field.
That number will be cut in half today begin-
ning at 11 a.m. when San Carlos, the South
Peninsula champion, takes on Daly City, the
San Francisco Division winner, in an elimina-
tion game. The winner of that game will then
take on defending champion Tri-County of
Winters at 1:30 p.m.
The winner of the 1:30 p.m. game will
advance to play Mendocino for the champi-
onship. Tri-County was sent into the loser’s
bracket following a 5-4 loss to Mendocino
Monday.
San Carlos and Daly City have both already
played Tri-County. San Carlos lost 6-1
Saturday in the World Series opener.
“They can hit. That team can flat-out hit,”
said San Carlos manager Brian Rumsey of Tri-
County. “We played close through six
innings, then they exploded on us.”
Daly City had a more humbling experience.
After beating Half Moon Bay 4-1 in its open-
er, Daly City was pounded by Tri-County 15-0
in the second round.
“Tri-County, they’re stacked,” said Daly
City manager Paul Cunnie. “They beat up on
us pretty easily [Sunday].”
Like a lot of summer league teams, both San
Carlos and Daly City have been plagued by
player absences. Rumsey said his players are
learning the hard way it’s not easy to just fli p
the switch and be ready for playoff baseball.
“So far, we’ve been good enough to win,”
Rumsey said. “It’s a long battle (coming
through the losers’bracket). Do I think we can
get to that (championship) game? Absolutely.
But we have our work cut out.”
Cunnie said he was taken aback when a cou-
ple of key players failed to show up for the
tournament. Because of the absences, Cunnie
doesn’t know how much pitching he’ll have
left if Daly City manages to beat San Carlos in
the morning and face Tri-County at 1:30 p.m.

Oakland second baseman Nick Punto throws on to first to complete a fifth-inning double play during the A’s 7-3 loss to Houston Monday.
B
oy, professional sports in gener-
al — and the NFL in particular —
just can’t catch a break. I have to
believe the NFL, Major League Baseball,
NBA, et al are really trying to get their
players to clean up their acts, especially
off the field. There are now hefty fines and
suspensions for drug use, DUI convic-
tions or for intentionally trying to hurt
opposing players.
Beat up your girl-
friend or wife? Eh.
No big deal. At least
that is how many
think the NFL feels
when it comes to
domestic violence.
All of this stems
from the announce-
ment last week that
Baltimore Ravens
running back Ray
Rice would be suspended for two games
following his plea for an attack on his
then-fiance, one in which he essentially
knocked her out in an elevator and then
dragged her by her hair off the elevator.
Of course Rice said and did all the right
things, his now-wife forgave him (appar-
ently) and, after his two-game suspen-
sion, Rice can move on with his life and
career — promising such an incident will
never happen again.
Even if Rice is true to his word, there
are many other professional athletes
who, unfortunately, will follow in his
footsteps.
Many opponents feel NFL commis-
sioner Roger Goodell does not take
domestic violence seriously, given the
lightness of Rice’s punishment.
Yet if he tested positive for drugs, he
faces a six-, seven-, eight-game suspen-
sion.
Here’s a nice little rule for leagues,
franchises and teams are encouraged to
follow: general sports fans no longer
care about drug use by players. What the
vast majority of fans do not condone is
domestic abuse.
NFL has mixed
up priorities

LOS ANGELES — Embattled Los Angeles
Clippers owner Donald Sterling lost his
attempt to block the $2 billion sale of the
team to former Microsoft CEO Steve
Ballmer.
In allowing the deal to go forward,
Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas sided
Monday with Sterling’s estranged wife,
Shelly Sterling, who negotiated the record
sale after the NBA banned the 80-year-old
billionaire for making
offensive remarks about
blacks.
Shelly Sterling sought
the probate judge’s
approval to ink the deal
after taking over the fam-
ily trust that owns the
team because doctors
found Donald Sterling
had signs of Alzheimer’s
disease and couldn’t manage his affairs.
The judge said Shelly Sterling had negoti-
ated a good deal and the
removal of her husband as
a co-trustee was in good
faith and not part of a
secret plan to seize the
team.
Shelly Sterling hugged
her lawyer and wept after
the judge explained his
ruling from the bench.
“I can’t believe it’s
over,” she said. “This is the best thing.”
An unusual provision of the ruling bars
Donald Sterling from seeking a court-
ordered delay of the sale as he appeals. His
lawyers plan to seek permission from an
appellate court to file an appeal.
Sterling was not in court for the ruling.
Bobby Samini, one of his lawyers, said
Sterling reacted calmly to the news and told
his lawyers they had to keep battling on
other fronts. Sterling testified during the
case that he would fight the NBA until his
death.

HOUSTON — After scoring six runs in the
last four games, Houston’s offense went on
a homer spree.
Chris Carter, Jason Castro, Marc Krauss
and Matt Dominguez each hit a home run as
the Houston Astros snapped a five-game
skid with a 7-3 win over the Oakland
Athletics on Monday night.
Carter hit a monstrous three-run shot to
center field in the third to give the Astros a
lead, and Castro and Krauss went back-to-
back in the sixth, with Castro’s homer a
two-run shot.
Krauss’ homer found the upper deck in
right field and chased A’s starter Jesse
Chavez (8-7). Two batters later, Dominguez
sent a drive onto the railroad tracks in left
field off reliever Dan Otero.
“We’ve been going through our offensive
woes and, again, to see the middle of the
lineup swing the bat the way they swung it
tonight was exciting,” Houston manager Bo
Porter said.

NAPA— Menelik Watson’s rookie season
proved to be mostly a waste.
Watson arrived at his first training camp
with the Oakland Raiders with an injured calf
that forced him to miss much of the presea-
son. A knee injury just
before the beginning of
the regular season cost
Watson a shot at a start-
ing job.
By the time Watson was
finally healthy he got
only limited playing
time, mostly as a sixth
offensive lineman. He
couldn’t overcome all the
missed time.
That wasn’t exactly what the Raiders were
counting on from a second-round pick, and it
certainly wasn’t what the raw Watson needed
considering he only played two seasons of
football before entering the NFL.
“It was frustrating last year. I’d wish that
on nobody, especially as a new guy coming
in,” Watson said. “I love this game. It was a
lot to have it taken away last year. This is a
new year. Last year is behind me. That’s
where it’s going to stay. ”
Watson said 2013 wasn’t a complete loss.
He learned the importance of taking care of
his body and placed extra emphasis this off-
season on conditioning, nutrition and
hydration.
He also got to watch how veterans prepare
and got a better understanding of the game,
which was needed since he didn’t even start
playing football until 2011.
Watson is a former basketball player and
boxer who played one year of junior college
football at Saddleback Community College
before transferring to Florida State. He start-
ed 12 games for the Seminoles in 2012 and
earned second-team All-ACC honors.
The Raiders saw enough potential to draft
Watson 42nd overall and still believe he can
reach that level.
“You don’t see men of his size with the
kind of feet that he has,” offensive coordina-
tor Greg Olson said. “We’ve seen growth
from him. We’ll know more when we get into
live situations, but we’ve got high expecta-
tions and he has high expectations as well.”
Watson did well on the second day of
padded practice Monday, more than holding
his own against veterans like Justin Tuck
and LaMarr Woodley during pass rushing
drills.
He is penciled in as the starting right tack-
le on a revamped offensive line that has only
one starter back at his position from last
season in center Stefen Wisniewski.
The Raiders have enough confidence in
Watson that they moved free-agent addition
Austin Howard from right tackle to guard —
a position he has never played before in the
NFL.
Watson is completely focused on securing
that job and has shied away from most inter-
views this offseason.
“Ever since after the season was over and
that last game I had a mission in mind,
which was to get my body back to where it
needs to be,” Watson said. “It’s just the
beginning. I guess it’s part of the reason
why I really haven’t talked with the media
because it’s really been about action and not
about talking anymore. ... Coming up
nobody knew who I was and back then it was
all about action. Just trying to get back to
that.”
Watson is especially excited for this sea-
son because the Raiders will be playing a
game in his home country of England on
Sept. 28. Watson, who grew up in
Manchester, went to London this offseason
to promote the game against Miami and
could sense the excitement back home for
the Raiders’ first game ever in England.
He said he saw plenty of people back home
in Raiders gear and gets lots of encourage-
ment from friends who want to see him suc-
ceed in the NFL.
“I can’t imagine when it’s game day,” he
said. “It’s going to be mental. There are a lot
of Raiders fans out there too. There are a cou-
ple of Miami fans but there will be a lot of
Raider fans too. It’s going to be a great
atmosphere. I can’t imagine what it will be
like on game day running out there with that
flag.”
NOTES: WR Rod Streater (concussion),
WR Juron Criner (hamstring) and S Shelton
Johnson (hamstring) all missed practice. ...
WR Greg Little left practice early with a
hamstring injury. ... The Raiders signed S
Jeremy Deering to fill an open spot on the
roster. Deering is an undrafted rookie out of
Rutgers and spent time with New England in
May.

ST. LOUIS — It’s become a rite of training
camp for Sam Bradford.
Every summer, he deals with the oversized
burden of living up to getting picked first
overall in 2010. The St. Louis Rams quarter-
back is not surprised that once again, he’s
supposedly at a career crossroads.
Bradford can’t remember when that wasn’t
perceived to be the case, and he tries to
ignore low outside expectations that include
a fantasy rating in the bottom half of NFL
quarterbacks and other assorted doubts. He’s
as eager as anyone on the outside to be a dif-
ference-maker in a breakthrough season.
“Every year is a ‘make it or break it’ year
according to someone,” Bradford said, then
quickly shifted to team emphasis. “I think
everyone in our locker room feels really
good about where we’re at right now and
where this football team is going.
“I think we have a great chance to be real-
ly good.”
So far he’s been impressive in camp,
rewarded for dedication to the rehab pro-
gram. Though he’s wear-
ing a brace, there have
been no restrictions.
“If we have to back
down, we’ll back down,”
coach Jeff Fisher said.
Whatever he does, criti-
cism flows freely. The
team can only scoff at
some of the opinions on
social media.
The biggest reason Bradford is a lightning
rod player is because he had the good fortune
to be the last high-dollar No. 1 pick before
the NFL went to a rookie salary cap. He has
two years to go on a six-year deal worth $78
million that can be a bit of an albatross if
the Rams aren’t winning, or if he’s injured.
“No one steps on the field to lose,”
Bradford said. “I think we want it just as bad
as the city and the fans do.”
Former Seahawks fullback Michael
Robinson suggested on ESPN recently that
Bradford has a reputation of being “soft.” He
also missed six games with a high ankle
sprain in 2011.
Another opinion making the rounds this
week is the notion Bradford is a high-paid
game manager with limited improvisational
skills.
“Geez, there’s a million experts out there
and they all know football so well, but
they’ve never coached or played a day in
their life,” defensive end Chris Long said.
“If I sit there and start talking about
Cardinals baseball, well, I’m not a baseball
player, I’m just a fan. It’s kind of out of my
lane.”
Long was chosen second overall a year
before Bradford went No. 1, so he can relate
to attention that sometimes borders on
obsessive.
“It’s just dialogue and you’ve got to block
it out, and I think he does a really good job
of it,” Long said. “He’s a tough guy mental-
ly and physically and he’s just going to have
a big year, I just feel that way. ”
Before his season-ending left knee injury
in Week 7, Bradford appeared headed for his
best year with 14 touchdown passes and just
four interceptions.
The Rams were 3-4 with Bradford and it
could be argued he’d have made enough
impact to turn the tide in narrow home loss-
es the next two weeks against Seattle and
Tennessee. They went to a ground-oriented
offense under journeyman backup Kellen
Clemens and finished with seven wins for
the second straight year under coach Jeff
Fisher.
“Sam Bradford gets hurt, you change your
entire game plan,” general manager Les
Snead said.
Well before the draft the Rams assured
Bradford of their commitment and quashed
rumors about Johnny Manziel. There’s no
issue who’s No. 1 at camp. Journeyman
Shaun Hill is the backup and there are two
young quarterbacks in camp, sixth-round
pick Garrett Gilbert and Austin Davis.
“He’s come out healthier, stronger, faster,
and everybody can see it,” guard Rodger
Saffold said. “At the end of the day he does-
n’t need to be tough because we’re going to
do what we’ve got to do.”
Bradford’s goals for training camp and the
preseason are simple — get reacquainted
with the game.
“There’s no doubt that there is still a little
rust that needs to come off,” he said. “I just
haven’t been out there.”
Yet another make or break year for Rams’ Bradford

HOUSTON — The Houston Texans’ biggest
problem in their 2-14 season was inconsis-
tent play at quarterback.
Enter, Ryan Fitzpatrick. The veteran faces
the big task of turning around an offense that
did little right last year.
He isn’t at all daunted by the challenge and
won’t let last year’s woes bleed into 2014.
“This is completely new,” he said. “We’re
not even thinking or talking about last year
... I think everyone has seen that it is really a
year-to-year league. Just in terms of whatever
happened the year before, it doesn’t matter. If
you think about it too much then maybe it
affects you in a negative way.”
Fitzpatrick was signed in the offseason
after Houston traded Matt Schaub, whose ter-
rible play in 2013 helped doom the Texans to
the NFL’s worst record. Fitzpatrick was slated
to be Tennessee’s backup last season but was
thrust into the starting role after Jake Locker
was hurt midway through the season.
A former starter for the Buffalo Bills, the
nine-year veteran started nine games after
Locker’s injury. Fitzpatrick threw for 2,454
yards and 14 touchdowns. His best season
came in 2011, when he started each game for
the Bills and threw for 3,832 yards and 24
touchdowns.
Some thought the Texans should take a
quarterback with the No. 1 pick in the draft,
but they instead chose to upgrade their
defense with Jadeveon Clowney.
Fitzpatrick’s good work in the offseason
prompted new coach Bill O’Brien to name
him the starter in minicamp and the quarter-
back said it feels different to be in training
camp knowing he’ll be in charge of the
offense.
“I’ve got to take the next step now from
kind of learning an offense through the off-
season, now in training camp we’re getting
ready for the season,” he said. “I’ve got to
really take on that role of ownership. I think
so far we’ve got a good start, but we’ve got a
lot of work to go.”
One player who has already been impressed
by the 31-year-old Fitzpatrick is receiver
Andre Johnson. Johnson raved about his new
signal caller following their third practice
together after Johnson skipped offseason
workouts and mandatory minicamp.
“Me and him have been doing a lot of com-
municating since I’ve been here,” Johnson
said after Houston’s first practice in full pads
on Monday. “In this offense, the quarterback
and receiver definitely have to be on the same
page, so me and him are talking all of the
time, just things about the offense.”
Johnson has some catching up to do in
learning O’Brien’s system after missing so
much time and has already been helped by
Fitzpatrick’s hands-on approach.
“We’re all still learning because it’s a new
system for everybody,” Johnson said. “He’s
into it; if you’ve got a question, there is no
hesitation. If there is something he is think-
ing about, he is going to pull you to the side
and tell you about it ... he’s always on top of
everything.”
Fitzpatrick had been eager to start working
with Johnson and his first three days with
him as a teammate didn’t disappoint.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN FRANCISCO — Vance Worley tossed
a four-hitter for his first career shutout, and
the Pittsburgh Pirates pounded Madison
Bumgarner early in a 5-0 win over the strug-
gling San Francisco Giants on Monday
night.
Worley (4-1) struck out three and walked
one. His only other complete game came in
a 7-2 win over the Giants on July 26, 2011,
in Philadelphia.
Four players drove in a run off Bumgarner
(12-8) in the first, and Josh Harrison hit his
seventh homer in the second to provide all
of Pittsburgh’s pop.
Worley worked over hitters the rest of the
way to hand San Francisco its fifth straight
loss.
The Sacramento native was acquired from
Minnesota on March 25 for a player to be
named or cash. He spent time in extended
spring training and with Triple-A
Indianapolis before being thrust into
Pittsburgh’s rotation because of injuries.
Worley has made the most of his opportu-
nities in the majors. He has a 2.54 ERA i n
eight appearances, including seven starts,
and silenced an announced crowd of 41,794
at AT&T Park with the best performance of
his career.
Pablo Sandoval single twice, including
leading off the fifth for the first baserunner
against Worley. Gregor Blanco hit a swing-
ing bunt single in the sixth before being
nabbed trying to steal second. And Hunter
Pence’s two-out triple in the ninth was the
only other hit Worley allowed.
The Giants, who were just swept in a
three-game home series by the Dodgers to
fall out of first place in the NL West, were
counting on their All-Star pitcher to help
wash away their woes.
Instead, Bumgarner gave up five runs and
six hits in four innings. He had allowed one
run in 14 innings since the All-Star break
and was coming off his best start of the sea-
son.
All that evaporated in a 41-pitch first. He
allowed three hits, two walks and committed
one of two San Francisco errors in the
inning when he misfired to second trying to
pickoff Andrew McCutchen.
Gaby Sanchez, Neil Walker, Gregory
Polanco and Russell Martin each drove in a
run in the first.
Trainer’s room
Pirates: Left fielder Starling Marte can
come off the concussion list Wednesday but
likely won’t resume baseball activities until a
few days after that.
Gi ants: First baseman Brandon Belt
passed his concussion test, resumed working
out and is expected to return early in the team’s
10-game road trip that begins Friday at the
New York Mets. ... Backup catcher Hector
Sanchez failed his concussion test and said he
will be out least another three days. ... Center
fielder Angel Pagan (back) will go through his
pregame workout routine Tuesday in Arizona,
and if everything goes well the Giants will set
a date for his rehab assignment.
Quiet night for Giants’ bats

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
INDIANAPOLIS — Long before Jimmie
Johnson arrived on the NASCAR scene, Jeff
Gordon was the fastest thing on wheels.
He was the “Wonder Boy” who racked up
wins at a record place. He brought the southern
sport to Madison Ave. and became such a
household name that even rapper Nelly name-
dropped Gordon in a song.
Gordon won all the big races, collected four
championships in seven years and had 58 vic-
tories before his 30th birthday.
Then his pace began to slow, the rest of the
field caught up to him and Johnson moved
into the Hendrick Motorsports shop as the
new kid on the block. Gordon hasn’t won a
title since, while Johnson has won five.
Now, 13 years after Gordon launched “The
Drive for 5,” Gordon is on track to collect that
elusive fifth title.
The Sprint Cup points leader won Sunday’s
Brickyard 400, a race that often gives a pre-
view of the championship. Nine times in 21
years, the winner at Indianapolis Motor
Speedway went on to hoist the Cup at the end
of the year.
“If you can do it here, you can do it any-
where,” Gordon said after his NASCAR-record
fifth win at Indy.
Gordon, a week shy of his 43rd birthday and
often fighting an aching back, won on the
20th anniversary celebration of his first
Brickyard victory. It came on the day the
Mayor of Indianapolis proclaimed “Jeff
Gordon Day” and showed Gordon is trying to
make 2014 his year.
Although he talked in January of retirement
considerations, Gordon is reinvigorated and
deeply committed to winning a title with his
No. 24 team.
“You feel like you’ve kind of won all that
you could win, you’ve won four champi-
onships, then a guy like Jimmie Johnson
comes along and starts dominating, you kind
of lose the motivation,” Gordon said.
But he is inspired by the work ethic and ded-
ication of crew chief Alan Gustafson, and fears
being “the weak link” of the race team. He
also is motivated to share his success with
wife, Ingrid, and their two young children.
Gordon married Ingrid in 2006 and the couple
quickly added a boy and a girl to the family.
“It’s pushed me to give more, do more, work
harder,” he said. “Ingrid has never experienced
a championship. I told her ‘Hey, I know you
want to know what it’s like to win a champi-
onship. Well, there’s a big commitment that it
takes.’ She’s like ‘Whatever it takes.’
“That’s the kind of year that we’re having.
We’re just putting everything we possibly can
into it.”
It’s going take everything Gordon has to
win this Chase for the Sprint Cup champi-
onship, the first under a winner-take-all, elim-
ination round format.
A model of consistency all season long
with 14 top-10 finishes in 20 races, the slate
will be wiped clean come September. Gordon
will have to be aggressive and out front to
make it through the three elimination rounds.
If he is one of the four drivers to advance all
the way to the Homestead finale, the title will
go to the best driver in the fastest car on one
day only.

Jeff Gordon kisses the bricks at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway after winning his fifth
Brickyard 400. He hopes to parlay Sunday’s victory into his fifth Sprint Cup championship.
Donovan leads Galaxy
to 3-0 win over Sounders
SEATTLE — Landon Donovan
assisted on Gyasi Zardes’ goal in the
eighth minute, then scored off a
rebound 10 minutes later and led the
Los Angeles Galaxy to an impressive
3-0 win over the Seattle Sounders on
Monday night.
Donovan and the Galaxy won for the
fourth time in six matches and handed
the Western Conference-leading
Sounders one of their worst home MLS
losses in franchise history. Seattle
lost 4-1 last season at home to
Vancouver. The worst home defeat was
a 4-0 loss to Los Angeles in 2010 that
prompted Sounders management to
offer refunds to fans.
Donavan added a second assist on
Stefan Ishizaki’s goal as he ran
unmarked down the right side of the
field and beat Seattle goalkeeper Stefan
Frei to the far post.

“For the first game, we’re all right. If we win, then we’re in
trouble,” Cunnie said. “If I had my whole (pitching) staff, we’d
be in good shape. But I don’t have my whole staff.”
No matter what happens against San Carlos, Cunnie is see-
ing progress in the Daly City Joe DiMaggio program. This is
the second straight year Daly City qualified for the Joe
DiMaggio World Series.
“I’m pleased with my guys,” Cunnie said. “This team is not
as good as the team that went to the world series last year, but
this year we’ve gone farther.”
San Carlos and Daly City are the last two Peninsula teams
left because San Bruno, the North Peninsula Division champi-
on, along with Half Moon Bay — which was assured a spot in
the world series as tournament host — were both eliminated
after losing twice in as many games to start the tournament.
San Bruno opened world series play Saturday with an 8-1
loss to Mendocino. Sunday, San Bruno fell 3-2 to SF Cardinals
and was eliminated.
Half Moon Bay fell to Daly City 4-1 in the opener, and were
eliminated by virtue of a 13-2 decision against San Carlos.
With its win over Tri-County, Mendocino moves into the
championship game, where it will need to be defeated twice to
be denied the title. The championship game begins at 11 a.m.
Wednesday at Half Moon Bay. If a second game needs to be
played, it will begin 30 minutes after the first game.

Drug use in sports has been prevalent for so long I think
many just assume spectacular performances are drug
induced. Some will say drug use in professional sports is a
victimless crime, that the long-term ramifications only
hurt the user.
I don’t think you will find anyone who will condone
beating up anybody, but when a NFL football star beats
down his soon-to-be wife, he will be hard pressed to find a
lot of support.
And yet when the NFL had a chance to really make a
statement about not condoning such violence, Goodell
dropped the ball.
So, here is a partial breakdown of punishment for infrac-
tions in the NFL: fail a drug test, four-game suspension;
beat your girlfriend unconscious, two-game suspension.
The bad news is, I guarantee this will not be the last time
Goddell will have to hand down a suspension for a domestic
violence incident by one of the players in his league. He’ll
get a chance to right the Rice wrong in the future and, if
he’s been listening to the outcry from the society of
sports, he’ll realize he’ll need to wield a much bigger ham-
mer next time.
***
Looks like we’re about to find out what kind of baseball
team the Oakland A’s have. Will the loss of their leadoff
hitter cause as drastic a drop as the San Francisco Giants
experienced when it lost Angel Pagan?
We might find out.
First, Oakland’s regular leadoff hitter, center fielder Coco
Crisp, has been dealing with a neck injury all season long
since an early-season encounter with the fence. He’s been
in and out of the Oakland lineup since and apparently
things took a turn for the worst Sunday when he was sent
home from the A’s road trip in Texas to get further medical
evaluations.
No problem. Craig Gentry has done a fine job filling in
for Crisp — but now Gentry is going on the disabled list
after having his hand broken when he was hit by a pitch
Sunday. The A’s called up Billy Burns from Double-A
Midland to fill Gentry’s spot.
Despite having the best record in baseball, the A’s still
have to focus on winning the American League West first,
as the second-place Angels have the second-best record in
baseball and are only a couple games behind Oakland.
If Crisp can get healthy enough where he can play more
often than not, then the A’s should be OK. If Crisp has to
miss any significant amount of time over the next couple
of months, A’s fans are in for a wild ride.
Although given the number of home runs Oakland hits
coming from nearly every spot in the lineup, they’ll prob-
ably survive without Crisp for a couple of weeks. That’s
something the Giants could not accomplish with Pagan out
of the lineup.

With lawsuits pending in state and federal courts, the rul-
ing in Los Angeles County Superior Court is unlikely to put
an end to the bizarre saga that began in April when a record-
ing surfaced of Sterling scolding his young girlfriend for
bringing black men to Clippers games.
The NBAmoved quickly to ban Sterling for life and fined
him $2.5 million.
Sterling was apologetic after the audio recording went
viral, but his mea culpa backfired when he criticized Lakers
great Magic Johnson, who had been photographed with
Sterling’s girlfriend, as a bad role model for kids because he
had HIV. Sterling was roundly condemned from locker
rooms to the Oval Office, where President Barack Obama
called Sterling’s remarks “incredibly offensive racist state-
ments.”
With the NBAthreatening to seize the team and auction it,
Sterling initially gave his wife of 58 years permission to
negotiate a sale but then refused to sign the $2 billion
Ballmer deal, which would be a record price for an NBA
team. He said he would sue the league instead and then
revoked the trust, which his lawyers said effectively killed
the deal.
The nonjury trial held over several weeks focused mainly
on whether Shelly Sterling properly removed her husband
as a trustee and whether her actions carried any weight after
he revoked the trust.
Donald Sterling claimed his wife had deceived him about
the medical exams. His lawyers argued Monday that Shelly
Sterling’s lawyers were in cahoots with the doctors who
examined him and that his wife conspired with NBA
Commissioner Adam Silver to remove him from the trust.
“There’s no evidence, I’ll repeat that as loudly as you
allow,” attorney Maxwell Blecher said during closing argu-
ment, his voice rising. “There’s no evidence that Mr.
Sterling was incapable of carrying out his duties as a co-
trustee.”
Levanas said there was no credible evidence that Sterling
was defrauded.
Blecher said he was deeply disappointed in the judge’s
legal analysis.
The ruling Monday was tentative until the judge files it in
writing.
NBA spokesman Mike Bass said in a statement that the
league was pleased and looked forward to the transaction
closing as soon as possible.

MILLBRAE – I
recently read an
article in the trade
journal “American
Funeral Director”
about the famous
quote by the late
“Sir William Ewart
Gladstone”, the celebrated English four term
Prime Minister who was known for his
colorful oratories and speeches on the floor
of Parliament. This 19
th
century statesman
was renowned for many unique sayings, but
he is most noted among Funeral Directors
for saying this: “Show me the manner in
which a nation cares for its dead, and I will
measure with mathematical exactness the
tender mercies of its people, their respect for
the laws of the land and their loyalty to high
ideals.” This quote is very lyrical and well
thought out. It has become a long time
custom for many Funeral Homes to display
this quote on a plaque for all to see. The
meaning is obvious and is a direct
comparison between caring for our fallen
loved ones and the way we care for
ourselves, our community and our society.
To many observers it may appear that
we’ve lost the motivation to care for our
loved ones in a proper way, and that our
society has become misguided. Taking into
consideration the way our government
leaders sometimes act, without the maturity
to function unselfishly, is disturbing, and the
reasons they got elected can be alarming.
Also, in the eyes of logical people violence
should be against our nature, but seemingly
is embedded in our way of life. It is topsy-
turvy for a culture to view cruelty and tribal
brutality as a form of normality, and for love
to be viewed as an obscenity.
Yes, some say our society is falling apart,
but looking at the overall big picture I see
most people yearning to live a peaceful and
courteous life with those around them. Most
people are not violent. Most people want to
be accepted. Most people want to be happy.
Remember that “hate” is taught.
Wouldn’t it make more sense for “love” to
be taught? Teaching youngsters to be
curious and to enjoy the “differences” of
those around them would be a good start.
They say that it’s hard to teach old dogs new
tricks. But old dogs will not be here forever,
and with effort every young dog could be
cultivated with ideals for supporting others
with respect. Putting this into practice may
seem daunting, but it’s not impossible and
over time could be valuable for our future.
Humanity has always been burdened with
a good percentage of bad guys. But, all in
all, the ideals that the majority of us value
and strive to promote, life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness, are shared in our core.
Going back to Gladstone’s quote, I see
the vast majority of the families we serve at
the CHAPEL OF THE HIGHLANDS
deeply committed to doing the right thing
for their loved ones. They come to us with a
desire for closure and to enact final tributes
for those they’ve cherished. Whether public
or private their feelings are similar, and
showing one last bit of proper care is their
goal. For me this is a sign of hope, showing
that overall we are a society of good people
with a nature to live in harmony and peace.
If you ever wish to discuss cremation,
funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to
call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF
THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650)

The last time Houston hit three
home runs in an inning was June
5, 2013, against Baltimore.
The Astros were coming off a
three-game sweep at the hands of
Miami.
“It’s just nice to see that after we
struggled against the Marlins to
score runs,” Carter said. “It’s nice
to see the offense come around like
that.”
Houston starter Brett
Oberholtzer (3-7) won for the first
time since May 30, giving up
three runs and eight hits with two
strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings.
“For me and Castro, it was the
same game plan,” Oberholtzer
said. “Just attack them, throw the
ball in and stay away from the big
innings.”
Chavez allowed a season-high
six runs and five hits with five
strikeouts in 5 1-3 innings.
“I thought he was throwing the
ball really well, real similar to
how he did last time out,” Oakland
manager Bob Melvin said. “I
think the Carter at-bat affected the
way things went from there.”
The three home runs allowed
were a career high. Chavez had
allowed three home runs in his last
11 starts combined.
“To sum up the whole day, it was
three pitches and one walk,”
Chavez said. “That can’t happen
when you have the lead, and it’s
something that has been my
Achilles heel, giving back the
runs they get for me and not being
able to get through six.”
Stephen Vogt had two hits,
including a solo home run in the
third into the upper deck in right
to give the A’s a 2-0 lead. Jed
Lowrie and Josh Donaldson each
added two hits for Oakland.
Derek Norris gave the A’s a 1-0
lead in the second with an RBI sin-
gle, and Yoenis Cespedes tied it at
3 with a sacrifice fly in the fifth.

LOS ANGELES — The Los
Angeles Lakers confirmed Byron
Scott is their new coach Monday
night.
The Lakers finally made the
long-anticipated announcement in
a news release. Scott will be intro-
duced at a news conference Tuesday
at the Lakers’ training complex.
Scott told reporters last weekend
he had been hired by the Lakers,
who have been without a coach
since Mike D’Antoni resigned
April 30. Scott is the 25th head
coach in the 16-time NBAchampi-
ons’ franchise history.
General manager Mitch Kupchak
said he conducted “an extensive
and thorough search” with owner
Jim Buss.
“We’re proud to welcome Byron
back to the Lakers family as our
next head coach,” Kupchak said.
“Byron has proven himself at the
highest levels of the game as both
a player and a coach in his almost
30 years of NBA experience. His
leadership skills and track record
for success make him the ideal per-
son to lead this franchise for-
ward.”
Scott is 416-521 as a head coach
for New Jersey, New Orleans and
Cleveland, reaching two NBA
Finals with the Nets. He has won
three division titles, and he was
the NBA’s coach of the year in
2008.
Scott also was a shooting guard
for the Lakers for 11 seasons,
playing alongside Magic Johnson
during the Showtime era. He was a
teammate of Lakers star Kobe
Bryant during his final NBA sea-
son, and Bryant has endorsed
Scott for his new job.

DAKAR, Senegal — No one knows for
sure just how many people Patrick Sawyer
came into contact with the day he boarded a
flight in Liberia, had a stopover in Ghana,
changed planes in Togo, and then arrived in
Nigeria, where authorities say he died days
later from Ebola, one of the deadliest dis-
eases known to man.
Now health workers are scrambling to
trace those who may have been exposed to
Sawyer across West Africa, including flight
attendants and fellow passengers.
Health experts say it is unlikely he could
have infected others with the virus that can
cause victims to bleed from the eyes, mouth
and ears. Still, unsettling questions remain:
How could a man whose sister recently died
from Ebola manage to board a plane leaving
the country? And worse: Could Ebola
become the latest disease to be spread by
international air travel?
Sawyer’s death on Friday has led to
tighter screening of airline passengers in
West Africa, where an unprecedented out-
break that emerged in March has killed more
than 670 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone and
Liberia. But some health authorities
expressed little confidence in such precau-
tions.
“The best thing would be if people did not
travel when they were sick, but the problem
is people won’t say when they’re sick. They
will lie in order to travel, so it is doubtful
travel recommendations would have a big
impact,” said Dr. David Heymann, profes-
sor of infectious diseases at the London
School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
“The important thing is for countries to
be prepared when they get patients infected
with Ebola, that they are isolated, family
members are told what to do and health
workers take the right steps.”
The World Health Organization is await-
ing laboratory confirmation after Nigerian
health authorities said Sawyer tested posi-
tive for Ebola, WHO spokesman Gregory
Hartl said. The WHO has not recommended
any travel restrictions since the outbreak
came to light.
“We would have to consider any travel rec-
ommendations very carefully, but the best
way to stop this outbreak is to put the nec-
essary measures in place at the source of
infection,” Hartl said. Closing borders
“might help, but it won’t be exhaustive or
foolproof.”
The risk of travelers contracting Ebola is
considered low because it requires direct
contact with bodily fluids or secretions such
as urine, blood, sweat or saliva, experts
say. Ebola can’t be spread like flu through
casual contact or breathing in the same air.
Patients are contagious only once the dis-
ease has progressed to the point they show
symptoms, according to the WHO. And the
most vulnerable are health care workers and
relatives who come in much closer contact
with the sick.
Still, witnesses say Sawyer, a 40-year-old
Liberian Finance Ministry employee en
route to a conference in Nigeria, was vomit-
ing and had diarrhea aboard at least one of
his flights with some 50 other passengers
aboard. Ebola can be contracted from traces
of feces or vomit, experts say.
Sawyer was immediately quarantined upon
arrival in Lagos — a city of 21 million peo-
ple — and Nigerian authorities say his fel-
low travelers were advised of Ebola’s symp-
toms and then were allowed to leave. The
incubation period can be as long as 21 days,
meaning anyone infected may not fall ill for
several weeks.
Health officials rely on “contact tracing”
— locating anyone who may have been
exposed, and then anyone who may have
come into contact with that person. That
may prove impossible, given that other
passengers journeyed on to dozens of other
cities.
Patrick Sawyer had planned to visit his
family in Minnesota next month to attend
two of his three daughters’ birthdays, his
wife, Decontee Sawyer, told KSTP-TV i n
Minnesota.
New fears about Ebola spread after plane scare
how, and if, they are meeting the instruc-
tional minute requirement. The majority of
these schools seem to be missing marks in
the physical education department, accord-
ing to the email survey the district conduct-
ed.
“I was surprised,” said Superintendent
Alejandro Hogan. “But also there’s been a
shift in the last few years because all dis-
tricts were looking at implementation of
Common Core, math and language arts, so I
could see how physical education could fall
off the radar, but that shouldn’t happen.”
The data collected showed 44 percent of
schools — four sites — are meeting or
exceeding this requirement in all grade lev-
els, while 33 percent of schools, three
sites, are meeting the requirement in some
grade levels, but not all. Additionally, 22
percent of schools, two sites, were unable
to provide the district with specific
times/minutes per grade level and do not
appear to be meeting the requirement,
according to a staff report. Still, this data
needs to be taken with a grain of salt since
only 60 percent of principals were able to
respond, as it’s summer break.
“Where we are in the district (in terms of
elementary school physical education) is
still up in the air because the data is skewed
because it wasn’t completely representative
of each school site,” said board President
Maurice Goodman. “It did highlight we did
have some issues at some schools. There
were two new principals not aware of over-
seeing physical education programs. It’s
just a matter of the teachers understanding
what their responsibilities are, principals
offering support and the superintendent
making sure principals are held account-
able.”
California law establishes the priority of
physical education instruction and
Education Code Section 51210 requires 200
minutes of physical education every 10
school days for students in grades one
through six, according to the staff report.
The district now plans to reinstate a past
subcommittee on physical education, while
recruiting new parents, teachers, principals
and others to gather some information,
Goodman said
“The district is not trying to look back,”
he said. “We’re trying to make sure at day
one (of this coming school year) they’re
following ed code. Physical education pro-
gramming is not only an opportunity to
teach making healthy lifestyle changes, but
also give them (students) an opportunity to
build confidence.”
The committee’s first task is to look into
if the perception that elementary schools in
the district lack adequate physical education
programming is real, Hogan said.
Additionally, in the fall, the district’s
Educational Services Department will help
review the legal requirements for elemen-
tary physical education with all principals
who will go over this with their staff.
Principals at those sites who are meeting
the requirements will be asked to share their
site’s daily schedules and explain the
process they used to the other principals.
The department will provide principals with
the physical education framework and the
physical education standards, in addition to
sample lesson plans and daily schedules, to
share with staff.

WASHINGTON — A bipartisan deal to
improve veterans’ health care would author-
ize at least $17 billion to fix the health pro-
gram scandalized by long patient wait times
and falsified records covering up delays, the
bill’s chief supporters said Monday.
The agreement includes $10 billion in
emergency spending to make it easier for
veterans who can’t get prompt appoint-
ments with Veterans Affairs doctors to
obtain outside care; $5 billion to hire doc-
tors, nurses and other medical staff; and
about $1.5 billion to lease 27 new clinics
across the country, the chairmen of the
House and Senate Veterans Affairs commit-
tees said.
The bill also would expand a scholarship
program for veterans to include surviving
spouses of military members who died in the
line of duty, allow all veterans to qualify for
in-state college tuition, and grant the
Veterans Affairs secretary authority to
immediately fire senior executives, while
providing employees with streamlined
appeal rights.
The bill “makes certain that we address the
immediate crisis of veterans being forced
onto long waiting lists for health care,” said
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., chairman of the
Senate Veterans Affairs panel. The bill also
“strengthens the VAso that it will be able to
hire the doctors, nurses and medical person-
nel it needs so we can permanently put an
end to the long waiting lists,” Sanders said
at a news conference with Rep. Jeff Miller,
R-Fla., his House counterpart.
Miller said the bill would “go a long way
to resolve the crisis” that is gripping the
Department of Veterans Affairs. The agency
has been rocked by reports of patients dying
while awaiting treatment and mounting evi-
dence that workers falsified or omitted
appointment schedules to mask frequent,
long delays. The resulting election-year
firestorm forced VA Secretary Eric Shinseki
to resign in late May.

plan to reform the VAover the weekend after

more than six weeks of sometimes testy
talks. The compromise measure would require
the VAto pay private doctors to treat qualify-
ing veterans who can’t get prompt appoint-
ments at the VA’s nearly 1,000 hospitals and
outpatient clinics, or those who live at least
40 miles from one of them. The bill would
limit the number of veterans who can get out-
side care by restricting it to those who are
enrolled as of Aug. 1.
The proposed restrictions are important in
controlling costs for the program.
Congressional budget analysts had projected
that tens of thousands of veterans who cur-
rently are not treated by the VAwould likely
seek VAcare if they could see a private doctor
paid for by the government.
The deal requires a vote by a conference
committee of House and Senate negotiators,
and votes in the full House and Senate.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest
said President Barack Obama welcomes the
bipartisan deal. “There are much-needed
reforms that need to be implemented” at the
VA, Earnest said. The White House is espe-
cially pleased that the bill includes emer-
gency spending “to provide VAthe addition-
al resources necessary to deliver timely,
high-quality care to veterans through a
strengthened VAsystem,” Earnest said.
An updated audit by the VA this month
showed that about 10 percent of veterans
seeking medical care at VAhospitals and clin-
ics still have to wait at least 30 days for an
appointment. About 46,000 veterans have
had to wait at least three months for initial
appointments, the report said, and an addi-
tional 7,000 veterans who asked for appoint-
ments over the past decade never got them.
Acting VASecretary Sloan Gibson has said
the VA is making improvements, but said
veterans in many communities still are wait-
ing too long to receive needed care. The VA
provides health care to nearly 9 million
enrolled veterans.
The House and Senate are set to adjourn at
the end of the week until early September,
and lawmakers from both parties have said
completing a bill on veterans’ health care is
a top priority.

NEWYORK — When it comes to prevent-
ing the spread of germs, maybe the presi-
dent is on to something with his fondness
for fist bumps.
The familiar knocking of knuckles
spreads only one-twentieth the amount of
bacteria that a handshake does, researchers
report. That’s better than a high-five, which
still passes along less than half the amount
as a handshake.
So fist bumps — popularized by Barack
Obama and others — seem to be the wisest
greeting, especially during cold and flu sea-
son, said researcher David Whitworth of
Aberystwyth University in Wales.
The importance of hand hygiene is noth-
ing new in medicine. But the researchers
realized that while a lot of research focused
on hands getting germy from touching
doorknobs and other surfaces, only a few
studies had looked at handshakes.
“And there are alternatives to handshakes.
You see them on telly all the time — the fist
bump and high-five and all that,” Whitworth
said.
He and a student, Sara Mela, shook hands,
fist-bumped and high-fived each other
dozens of times for the research. One wore a
glove covered in bacteria, while the other
had a clean sterilized glove. After each
greeting, they measured how much bacteria
had been transferred.
Their results were published online
Monday in the American Journal of
Infection Control.
What makes the fist bump more sanitary?
Mostly, it’s the smaller amount of surface
area in contact between the two hands, an
analysis suggests.
Study: Fist bumps less
germy than handshakes

CHICAGO — Acostly drug given mostly
to premature babies is at the center of a
clash between the manufacturer and
the nation’s leading pediatrician’s
group, which recommends scal-
ing back use of the medicine.
The dispute involves new
guidelines from the American
Academy of Pediatrics, which
say medical evidence shows
the drug benefits few children
other than very young pre-
emies. The medicine guards
against a common but usually
mild virus that can cause serious
lung problems.
It’s the second time in two
years that the influential
group has recommended
narrowing use of the
drug, sold by
MedImmune under the
brand name Synagis.
MedImmune is
fighting back with
full-page newspa-
per ads that say
the updated
policy threat-
e n s
“our most vulnerable babies.”
Synagis protects against RSV, or respiratory syncytial
virus, which infects nearly all U.S. children by the age of 2.
For most, it causes only mild, cold-like symptoms. But it is
also the most common cause of pneumonia in U.S. infants,
and as many as 125,000 young children are hospitalized with
RSV each year, according to the federal Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention.
It was approved in 1998 for use in certain “high-risk” chil-
dren, based on research showing benefits for certain children
including premature infants born at 35 weeks or earlier. The
pediatricians’ group says it has sought to provide more spe-
cific guidance because the government’s definition of high
risk is vague.
The medicine is given in a series of seasonal injections
costing thousands of dollars, and a recent lag in Synagis sales
may explain MedImmune’s tactics, which include recruiting
parents to help tout the drug.
Sales for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $328 million,
down 19 percent from $414 million in the same period last
year, according to an earnings report from parent company
AstraZeneca.
Company spokeswoman Alisha Martin said it placed full-
page ads in The New York Times and several other newspapers
because “we felt it important to inform parents — including
the half-a-million women who give birth prematurely each
year — of the decisions being made that could impact the lives
of their children.”
Studies show the drug can slightly reduce risks for being
hospitalized but doesn’t shorten hospital stays or lessen
chances for long-term complications or death, said Dr. H.
Cody Meissner, a member of an academy committee involved
in drafting the new guidance and an infectious disease expert
at Tufts Medical Center.
Advances in treatment for preemies in recent years make
Synagis, also known as palivizumab (pah-lih-VIH’-zu-
mahb), unnecessary for many, the academy says. Its new guid-
ance recommends it only for: infants born before 29 weeks;
older preemies with chronic lung disease and those with cer-
tain heart problems; and certain other at-risk children
younger than age 2.

at sentencing, Chief Deputy District
Attorney Karen Guidotti said.
To qualify for Pathways, Velete must
prove residency in San Mateo County
and have a documented mental diagno-
sis.
Velete has a history of serious men-
tal health illness and both his treat-
ment and housing were in flux when he
committed the “very horrible crime”
which was “too weird to be done by a
sane person,” Rajan said.
Rajan said Velete’s mental issues
don’t excuse his actions but do help
explain them.
Prosecutors say Velete, who is on
both felony and misdemeanor proba-
tion for prior assault and domestic vio-
lence convictions, was angry the terri-
er mix puppy, Lucky, defecated on the
floor so he spent a month torturing the
animal before killing it. The abuse
reportedly included keeping him crated
in the bathroom, punching and kick-
ing, feeding him his bipolar medica-
tion, taping his mouth shut, spraying
household cleaner in his eyes and
hanging him in a duffel bag from the
shower while he whimpered.
“This was obviously a really serious
case and actually quite shocking,”
Guidotti said.
Rajan said some of Velete’s behav-
ior, such as feeding him the medica-
tion, was a misguided effort to treat the
animal.
“On some level, obviously it was
not the right thing to do but even his
mother who wasn’t particularly friend-
ly to him admitted he seemed to want
to help the dog,” Rajan said.
Some of the abuse happened in front
of Velete’s 4-year-old daughter which
led to the child endangerment charge.
Velete eventually suffocated Lucky
and took him away in a duffel bag after
which the girlfriend’s mother, who had
reportedly been too terrified to contact
authorities before, finally called the
police to the apartment, according to
prosecutors.
Velete remains in custody on
$50,000 bail pending his sentencing
hearing.

dog for the public,” Ruane alleged.
Ruane’s letter to the governor asks
Brown to remove Peevey from the
CPUC presidency immediately and
also to appoint an independent moni-
tor to oversee relations between the
agency and the utility.
San Bruno also filed two motions
with the CPUC itself Monday. One
asks to have Peevey removed from
proceedings related to the San Bruno
explosion. The other asks for sanc-
tions against PG&E for violating a
commission rule against private com-
munications in regulatory proceed-
ings.
Britt Strottman, a lawyer for the
city, said those two motions will go
before administrative law judges at the
commission. After 60 days, she said,
the city would have the right to file a
lawsuit in Superior Court with the
same claims.
The 7,000 pages of records and
emails obtained by San Bruno also
include emails between other CPUC
officials and PG&E staff members.
State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo,
noted at the news conference that
PG&E regulatory relations director
Laura Doll answered one email from
Peevey’s chief of staff with a message
saying, “Love you.”
“If that’s not a cozy relationship, I
don’t know what is,” Hill said.
The commission issued a statement
saying, “The CPUC takes seriously all
allegations of bias and rule viola-
tions.”
CPUC officials said they will evalu-
ate the city’s two motions and give all
parties a chance to comment.
PG&E released a letter sent Monday
by utility President Chris Johns to
Ruane and the CPUC’s five members.
Johns wrote, “ We are absolutely com-
mitted to conducting ourselves in an
ethical manner at all times.”
Johns wrote that the utility will
review the emails and “take appropri-
ate action” if its standards were not
met.

to 3.1 billion gallons, SFPUC
spokesman Charles Sheehan said.
“We’re making up for lost ground
earlier in the year and as long as we
continue the trend, we should be able
to meet our 10 percent goal by the end
of the year,” Sheehan said.
Currently, the Hetch Hetchy storage
system stands at just 63 percent of
capacity and any available snowpack
that would have contributed has melt-
ed.
Based on the three-year dry spell,
Sheehan said the SFPUC determined
setting an 8 billion gallon conserva-
tion goal would help create a cushion
for the possibility of continued
drought years.
Due to the slow start, SFPUC con-
sumers have currently only reduced
consumption by about 6.6 percent in
comparison to this time last year,
SFPUC spokesman Tyrone Jue said
previously. However, officials are
hopeful their conservation messages
are gaining traction.
Monday’s mid-summer conservation
update was a welcomed contrast to the
SFPUC’s mid-year update in late June,
which showed its 2.6 million Bay Area
consumers were far from meeting its
year-end goal.
Although the year is more than half
over and consumers still have a lot to
save to meet the 8 billion gallon mark,
SFPUC officials are hopeful the con-
tinued trend will help it reach its goal.
“Over the past two months, our cus-
tomers have successfully accelerated
their conservation efforts and more
than doubled the total water savings,”
SFPUC General Manager Harlan Kelly
Jr. said in a press release. “We’re hop-
ing the surge of aggressive conserva-
tion by our customers continues for
the rest of the year. ”

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LOS ANGELES — “Orange Is the
New Black” actress Uzo Aduba is
flooded with marriage proposals
these days.
“People on the street, people on
Twitter ask, ‘Can I be your prison
wife?’ I’m like you know, ‘Name the
day and the time,”’ Aduba joked.
Aduba plays Suzanne “Crazy Eyes”
Warren on the Netflix Inc. original
series about a women’s prison.
She’s nominated for an Emmy Award
for outstanding guest actress in a
comedy series along with her
“Orange” co-stars Laverne Cox and
Natasha Lyonne.
Fan reaction also includes questions
about her character’s unique hairstyle
and her most memorable quotes.
“‘Chocolate and vanilla swirl,’
always. Throwing pie, dandelions,
that they’re not crazy, they’re
unique,” she said. “For it to be
received the way it has been, it’s hum-
bling.”
For Aduba, the role is much more
than Suzanne’s quirky hairdo and
scene-stealing one-liners.

TUESDAY, JULY 29, 2014
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Favorable financial deals
are imminent. Your talents are in demand, and you
will make some positive connections that will lead to
new ideas, opportunities and a brighter future.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Stop spinning your
wheels and make a move. Take stock of your
current position, and consider where you want to
be. You need a change, but only you can make that
happen. Take action.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Your rivals may want
to adopt your ideas as their own. Be secretive about
your projects. The less they know about your plans,
the greater your advantage.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Love is in the air. If
you are in a committed relationship, find a way to
show how much you care. If you are single, this is a
great day to meet someone new.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — A workplace
situation will be unnerving. Keep your emotions
under control, and be professional and more
accepting of those around you. In the end, the
changes made will benefit you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — No one expects you
to know everything. Reach out to people with more
experience in areas that interest you. The more you
learn, the more perceptive you will become.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Invest in your talents.
Financial rewards are one thing, but you must be able
to make money without selling your soul. Your knack
for spotting trends is likely to improve your cash flow.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Don’t let people
walk all over you. If you are not feeling fulfilled in
your current situation, consider moving on. Constant
frustration and anxiety are not healthy.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — You will meet a
potential business partner today. The time is right to
look into a new field or position. Check out local job
websites for inspiration.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Time spent with your
family will increase substantially if you are able to
turn a hobby into a lucrative business. Consider which
market will best highlight your skills.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Someone around you
is likely to be argumentative. Stay out of the line of
fire. Do some gardening or another outdoor activity
until the situation calms down.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — By attending a career
workshop or seminar, you are likely to meet up with
someone who will help you develop your ideas. This
will prove to be a valuable tool for improving your
job prospects.

2014 and involving a projected expenditure of $1 million or more that are eligible for
state bond funding, must be prequalified prior to being listed as a subcontractor by a
bidder submitting a bid on the Project.
2. Any subcontractor interested in being listed as a MEP Subcontractor by prime
contractors bidding on District projects must submit fully completed and sealed District
prequalification forms and financial information (“Prequalification Package”) to the
District. Prequalification Packages will be received before 2:00 p.m. on August 12,

5. If a subcontractor performs work for a District project, the subcontractor shall pay all
