Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula

San Mateo County residents
appear to be getting the message
to cut water use as the drought
stretches into the hot summer
months, with most cities and dis-
tricts reporting they are close to or
exceeding the San Francisco
Public Utilities Commission’s
request for a 10 percent reduction.
“I think people are increasingly
conscious of the severity of the
drought. But at the same time,
we’ve been putting the conserva-
tion message out strongly for
quite a while, pretty much continu-
ously. And I think people have
responded well to that,” said David
Dickson, general manager of the
Coastside County Water District.
Since February, San Mateo
County cities have reduced use in
comparison to the same time as
last year, with Hillsborough resi-
dents cutting back the most and
Redwood City residents the least.
Data provided by cities and water
districts shows a range of conser-
vation. Hillsborough customers
saved the most, having voluntari-
ly reduced use by 16 percent.
Belmont customers served by the
Mid-Peninsula Water District cut
back an average of 15.4 percent
since February, although conser-
vation rates plummeted to 8 per-
cent in June. San Carlos and
County meetingwater goals
Most Peninsula cities show reductions in use, officials urge more summer cutbacks

percent since water officials requested a 10 percent reduction.

What started as a mere interest in
a fourth period Spanish 3 class has
transformed into a full-fledged
charity project for 17-year-old
Julia Tognotti of Belmont.
Tognotti, an incoming senior at
St. Ignatius College Preparatory
in San Francisco, started learning
about the thousands of child
refugees at the Nogales, Arizona
and Nogales, Mexico border flee-
ing and trying to escape violence,
drug cartels and gangs. In mid-
June, she headed down to the bor-
der with her dad and two friends to
see if they could help with the
growing immigration crisis.
“I watched a documentary on
kids traveling up from South
America and started realizing
how young these kids are,” she
said. “I begged my dad to go —
every week I reminded him. … I
collected donations, then start-
ed getting some money and
ended up having 12 boxes.”
Once at the border, she realized
how quickly the children go
through all of the items, so she
decided to regularly ship boxes of
tennis shoes, women’s undergar-
ments, sweaters, jeans, toothpaste
and other necessities to the chil-
dren. While volunteering at a shel-
ter for migrants in Nogales,
Mexico called Kino Border
Initiative, she met a boy who
struggled to get up north from
Honduras. She just shipped 14
boxes to them the other day. Local
neighbors in San Mateo and
Belmont have donated more than
3,000 items to this cause.
“I had no idea that so many peo-
ple would donate,” she said.
“Every day we opened the door (to

Leading a maritime infrastruc-
ture authority and bank that pro-
vides financial leverage for several
ports and harbors throughout
California is nothing unusual for
San Mateo County Harbor District
General Manager Peter Grenell,
but one commissioner believes
the local agency may be too
Harbor District Commissioner
Sabrina Brennan said the idea of
Grenell running a bank out of the
district’s office is inappropriate.
“I’m concerned that the Harbor
District has been picking up the
cost of the infrastructure bank
doing business — including trav-
el, staff, responding to [public
records act] requests, using staff
time for meetings, those types of
things,” Brennan said.

County officials are expected to
deny $7.2 million in tax refund
claims put in by several airlines
doing business at San Francisco
International Airport that claim their
jets and planes were overvalued in
2009 by the Assessor’s Office.
The airlines — AirTran,
American, JetBlue, SkyWest,
Southwest and United — seek vari-
ous amounts totaling
$7,292,454.75 because they claim
the Assessor’s Office misapplied the
formula for commercial aircraft
which left the fleet overvalued and
therefore overtaxed.

Boy lost in New York City
calls it ‘greatest day of my life’
NEW YORK — A 9-year-old boy
who got separated from his family at
the Central Park Zoo says being lost
for two hours in New York City was
the greatest day of his life.
The Daily News reports that Chris
Villavicencio of Union City, New
Jersey, got separated from his par-
ents and younger sister Saturday
He left the zoo and wandered
around Times Square until police
found him at the Port Authority Bus
Terminal more than a mile away.
Meanwhile, the boy’s panicked
parents reported him missing to
police in Central Park.
When the family was reunited,
Chris’s father clutched him tightly
and wept.
The boy told the Daily News,
“This was the greatest day of my life
because this was the first day I was
at the police station!”
150-pound tortoise
found strolling in LA suburb
ALHAMBRA — At least officers
didn’t have to issue a speeding tick-
et when they spotted a giant tortoise
ambling down a street suburban Los
The Alhambra Police Department
joked on its Facebook page that the
150-pound reptile was captured
Saturday afternoon after a brief pur-
“The tortoise did try to make a run
for it; but, our officers are pretty
fast,” the post said.
It took two officers to heft the
hard-shelled creature into a patrol
car. They then took the reptile to the
local police station before turning it
over to animal control authorities.
Giant tortoises are not indigenous
to the Los Angeles area.
Police are asking anyone with a
big tortoise that went missing this
weekend to contact them. They
aren’t sure if this one escaped or was
abandoned by its owner.
Police say this particular reptile
has some distinctive markings.
They aren’t revealing them for the
time being, however, to ensure that
whoever claims the tortoise is its
rightful owner.
Police: 2 teens made drug
brownies during break-in
COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. — Police say
two 17-year-old boys have been
charged with breaking into a
Pennsylvania home and baking
drug-laced brownies.
Police say the burglary happened
late July 22 in Perkiomen
Township, though the department
only recently publicized it.
Police say the boys were found
with drug paraphernalia and more
than 2 pounds of the unspecified
drug used to make the brownies.
The boys have been charged in
Montgomery County Juvenile
The township is in the
Philadelphia suburbs, northwest of
the city.
Cops: Drunk got in
police car with officers inside
PITTSBURGH — Pittsburg h
police say a drunken woman tried to
drive away in an unmarked police car
- with two officers still inside.
According to a criminal com-
plaint, 32-year-old Ria Buford got
into the car at about 2:15 a.m.
Saturday outside a nightclub that
was hosting a party after the Wiz
Khalifa concert.
Police say she sat in the driver’s
seat and told the two plainclothes
officers in the back that she intend-
ed to drive the vehicle to where her
own was parked.
Police say Buford was arrested
before she could drive anywhere. A
man who intervened in her arrest
was also charged.
Online court records don’t list an
attorney for Buford. She faces a pre-
liminary hearing Thursday on
charges of robbery of a motor vehi-
cle, disorderly conduct and public

hen the Spanish began coloniz-
ing the San Francisco Peninsula
in the 1770s, the Franciscan
fathers were in control of the operation.
Their goal was to Christianize the natives
and prepare them for living a “civilized”
life. Within 10 years, the natives were to be
given land on which they could live a
Christian life and self-sustain themselves
with the skills that the padres taught them.
The real world is sometimes more cruel
that we can expect and many factors were not
taken into account when the 240 soldiers
and settlers of the Anza party began arriving
at the tip of the Peninsula. The Indians were
friendly enough, at least the ones on the
western part of the Bay. The eastern side was
hostile and remained hostile enough that the
settlers seldom ventured to the east side of
the Bay. The western Indians (Ohlone) wel-
comed the Spanish although they could not
speak Spanish and much that the Spanish
tried to communicate to them was lost in
translation. When mysterious diseases
began attacking the natives, the number
needed to sustain the Missions was threat-
ened and the padres were at a loss to maintain
Peninsula Ranchos
Rancho rodeos were highly social affairs in the sparsely settled Peninsula.

Man fraudulently posed
as Microsoft employee
A South San Francisco resident
received a phone call from a man
fraudulently posing as a Microsoft
Windows employee and asking for
personal information on
Wednesday, according to police.
The suspect, calling himself
Mike Johnson, told the resident
that her computer had been com-
promised by a hacker and that he
needed access to her computer to
conduct a diagnosis.
The victim did not provide any
personal information to the sus-
pect, according to police.
Microsoft said that they do not
contact their customers over the
phone, nor do they have any
records of anyone from the compa-
ny calling the victim.
The number on the victim's
caller identification was (231)

disconnected, police said.

Man scammed into paying
to clear fake criminal charges
South San Francisco police are

on Tuesday from a man claiming
he was a federal prosecutor from

Office. The victim told investiga-
tors the man told him he had three
pending charges and needed to
wire several hundred dollars to him
in order to clear the charges.
Police said the victim thought
he was really in trouble, so he
obtained the money and sent it to
the suspect via Green Dot
MoneyPak pre-paid card.
The victim told police he
received another call from the sus-
pect demanding more money, but
the victim refused and then con-
tacted police.

An aircraft company operating at San
Francisco International Airport was fined
nearly $80,000 for inadvertently funnel-
ing jet fuel into the water treatment sys-
Aircraft Service International Inc. agreed
to pay $77,982 in civil penalties and
cleanup cost reimbursements to settle alle-
gations it violated laws and regulations
about the disposal and storage of hazardous
waste at an unauthorized point. It also did
not quickly report the release to state emer-
gency services agency or county environ-
mental health and didn’t adhere to a part of
the California Fire Code, according to the
District Attorney’s Office.
The company was not required to admit
any wrongdoing as part of the stipulated
judgment reached with San Mateo County
prosecutors but must agree to comply with
environmental protection and fire code rules
and laws.
The fuel contamination appeared to be an
accident and the company cooperated in the
cleanup, said prosecutor Todd Feinberg of
the District Attorney’s Office consumer and
environmental unit.
“I didn’t see any indication of intention-
ally knowing they were putting jet fuel into
the treatment plant,” Feinberg said.
The hazardous waste situation began
Sept. 28, 2012, when an ASII supervisor
ordered two mechanics at SFO to remove a
pool of oily water from the company’s
maintenance facility there using a fuel pit
maintenance truck. The mechanics didn’t
know the truck’s tank already held 200 to
400 gallons of Jet Afuel — which they were
not trained to handle — and discharged the
collected water into the airport’s Westfield
Wash Rack. The fuel came out with the water
and ended up ultimately transferring to the
SFO Mel Leong Treatment Plan which con-
nects to the rack via an industrial waste
pump station.
The treatment plan handles industrial
wastewater and storm water runoff from the
On Oct. 1, 2012, treatment plant workers
noticed fuel in the system and the next day
began the cleanup process. Two days later,
ASII became involved in the decontamina-
tion after learning its employees were
responsible. The county was alerted of the
fuel release Oct. 5 not by ASII but a third
Samples taken at the water treatment sys-
tem two months later showed the levels of
jet fuel and diesel organics had come back
down to normal, Feinberg said.
There were no signs the jet fuel ever left
the treatment plant, he said.
Davina Pujari, who represented ASII in
the case, did not return a call for comment.

BURNEY — A pair of wildfires burning
without restraint about 8 miles apart in
northeast California became the focus of
state and federal firefighters Sunday as
authorities reported that one of the blazes
had destroyed eight homes and prompted the
precautionary evacuation of a small long-
term care hospital.
The two fires, among 14 burning in the
state, started within a day of each other in
Lassen National Forest and had expanded
into private property and scorched 90 square
miles as of Sunday morning, up from 39
square miles a day earlier.
The more destructive of the two was
threatening the town of Burney, where offi-
cials at Mayer Memorial Hospital decided to
evacuate their 49-bed annex for patients
with dementia and other conditions requir-
ing skilled nursing. The patients were trans-
ferred to a hospital in Redding, about 55
miles away, the hospital reported on its
The Shasta County sheriff had Burney on
an evacuation watch after ordering residents
of three small neighboring communities to
leave on Saturday night. Sgt. John Greene
said the area is sparsely populated and that
authorities did not yet know how many resi-
dents were affected or if the destroyed homes
were vacation houses or permanent
Evacuations also remained in effect for a
community on the edge of the second fire,
which was sparked by lightning Wednesday.
The two blazes were among 14 that feder-
al, state and local fire crews were tackling on
Sunday in central and Northern California,
state Department of Forestry and Fire
Protection spokesman Dennis Mathisen
said. Together, they have consumed more
than 183 square miles of timber and brush
left parched by the state’s extended drought,
Mathisen said, adding that the coming week
promises not to be any easier.
“Today we are looking at slightly cooler
temperatures, but Northern California con-
tinues to be hot and dry and breezy in some
areas, and in fact we are looking at a fire
weather watch going into effect Monday
morning for a large portion of Northern and
northeast California and possible thunder-
storms, which could mean more lightning,”
he said.
The number of fires led California Gov.
Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency
Saturday. His proclamation said the circum-
stances and magnitude of the wildfires are
beyond the control of any single local gov-
ernment and will require the combined
forces of regions to combat.
Siskiyou County, which borders Oregon,
also was contending with two fires, both
started by lightning last week. One of them,
which began in Oregon, threatened hundreds
of homes and charred 51 square miles in
both states, including 14 square miles on
the California side. It burned three homes
and other structures, and evacuations
remained in place for several neighbor-
hoods in both states.
Federal fire officials said that along with
working to protect homes, one of their pri-
orities was to safeguard a water station that
supplies the city of Yreka. Brown secured a
federal grant to cover 75 percent of the cost
to fight the blaze.
In Washington state, firefighters con-
tained a wildfire that started Friday and
burned six to eight homes.

A mountain lion has been spotted in a
residential area of southern San Mateo
County Sunday afternoon, according to
the sheriff's office.
The sighting occurred at 11 a.m. in the
Ladera area, at Gabarda Way and Pecora
Way, the sheriff's office reports.
Deputies advise in the event that a citi-
zen should encounter a mountain lion,
not to approach the animal, especially if
it is feeding or has offspring. Most moun-
tain lions prefer to avoid confrontation.
Do not run from the animal; instead, face
it, make noise, and try to look larger by
waving your arms.
People should also avoid hiking or jog-
ging at dawn, dusk or at night when the
animals are most active.

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

administration program secretly
dispatched young Latin Americans
to Cuba using the cover of health
and civic programs to provoke
political change, a clandestine
operation that put those foreigners
in danger even after a U.S. contrac-
tor was hauled away to a Cuban jail.
Beginning as early as October
2009, a project overseen by the
U.S. Agency for International
Development sent Venezuelan,
Costa Rican and Peruvian young
people to Cuba in hopes of gin-
ning up rebellion. The travelers
worked undercover, often posing
as tourists, and traveled around the
island scouting for people they
could turn into political activists.
In one case, the workers formed
an HIV-prevention workshop that
memos called “the perfect excuse”
for the program’s political goals
— a gambit that could undermine
America’s efforts to improve
health globally.
But their efforts were fraught
with incompetence and risk, an
Associated Press investigation
found: Cuban authorities ques-
tioned who was bankrolling the
travelers. The young workers
nearly blew their mission to
“identify potential social-change
actors.” One said he got a paltry,
30-minute seminar on how to
evade Cuban intelligence, and
there appeared to be no safety net
for the inexperienced workers if
they were caught.
“Although there is never total
certainty, trust that the authorities
will not try to harm you physical-
l y, only frighten you,” read a
memo obtained by the AP.
“Remember that the Cuban gov-
ernment prefers to avoid negative
media reports abroad, so a beaten
foreigner is not convenient for
In all, nearly a dozen Latin
Americans served in the program
in Cuba, for pay as low as $5.41
an hour.
The APfound USAID and its con-
tractor, Creative Associates
International, continued the pro-
gram even as U.S. officials pri-
vately told their government con-
tractors to consider suspending
travel to Cuba after the arrest of
contractor Alan Gross, who
remains imprisoned after smug-
gling in sensitive technology.
“We value your safety,” one sen-
ior USAID official said in an
email. “The guidance applies to
ALL travelers to the island, not
just American citizens,” another
official said.
The revelations of the USAID
program come as the White House
faces questions about the once-
secret “Cuban Twitter” project,
known as ZunZuneo. That pro-
gram, launched by USAID in 2009
and uncovered by the AP in April,
established a primitive social
media network under the noses of
Cuban officials. USAID’s inspec-
tor general is investigating that
program, which ended in
September, 2012.
Officials said USAID launched
“discreet” programs like
ZunZuneo to increase the flow of
information in a country that
heavily restricts it. But the AP’s
earlier investigation found
ZunZuneo was political in nature
and drew in subscribers unaware
that the service was paid for by the
U.S. government.
“USAID and the Obama adminis-
tration are committed to support-
ing the Cuban people’s desire to
freely determine their own future,”
the agency said in response to
written questions from the AP.
“USAID works with independent
youth groups in Cuba on commu-
nity service projects, public
health, the arts and other opportu-
nities to engage publicly, consis-
tent with democracy programs
Creative Associates declined to
comment, referring questions to
Both ZunZuneo and the travelers
program were part of a larger, mul-
timillion-dollar effort by USAID
to effect change in politically
volatile countries, government
data show. But the programs
reviewed by the AP didn’t appear
to achieve their goals and operated
under an agency known more for
its international-aid work than
stealthy operations. The CIA
recently pledged to stop using
vaccine programs to gather intel-
ligence, such as one in Pakistan
that targeted Osama bin Laden.
U.S. sent Latin youth undercover in anti-Cuba ploy
By Mark Sherman
WASHINGTON — No one on the
Supreme Court objected publicly
when the justices voted to let
Arizona proceed with the execu-
tion of Joseph Wood, who unsuc-
cessfully sought information
about the drugs that would be used
to kill him.
Inmates in Florida and Missouri
went to their deaths by lethal
injection in the preceding weeks
after the high court refused to
block their executions. Again, no
justice said the executions should
be stopped.
Even as the number of execu-
tions annually has dropped by
more than half over the past 15
years and the court has barred
states from killing juveniles and
the mentally disabled, no justice
has emerged as a principled oppo-
nent of the death penalty.
This court differs from some of
its predecessors. Justices William
Brennan and Thurgood Marshall
dissented every time their col-
leagues ruled against death row
inmates, and Justices Harry
Blackmun and John Paul Stevens,
near the end of their long careers,
came to view capital punishment
as unconstitutional.
“They’re all voting to kill them,
every so often. They do it in a very
workmanlike, technocratic fash-
ion,” Stephen Bright, a veteran
death penalty lawyer in Georgia,
said of the current court.
Wood’s execution on July 23
was the 26th in the United States
this year and the third in which
prisoners took much longer than
usual to die. Wood, convicted of
killing his estranged girlfriend
and her father, was pronounced
dead nearly two hours after his
execution began, and an
Associated Press reporter was
among witnesses who said Wood
appeared to gasp repeatedly, hun-
dreds of times in all, before he
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said
she and her colleagues are aware of
what happened in Arizona, though
she declined to say how the court
would rule on a plea to stop the
next scheduled execution — of
Michael Worthington on
Wednesday in Missouri.
“Your crystal ball is as good as
mine,” she said last week in an inter-
view with The Associated Press.
The court’s rejection of Wood’s
claim that he was entitled to learn
more about Arizona’s procedures
and the source of the execution
drugs came at the end of protracted
legal wrangling. Afederal judge in
Arizona initially denied Wood’s
claim. The federal appeals court in
San Francisco then granted a
reprieve. But the justices reversed
that ruling in a brief order. The
court said the judge who initially
ruled against Wood “did not abuse
his discretion.”
In death cases, the court often is
the last stop for inmates seeking a
last-minute reprieve. They rarely
succeed, a function of the need for
five votes on the nine-justice court
and the reluctance of appellate
judges to disturb lower court rul-
ings unless they are demonstrably
Supreme Court justices silent over execution drug secrecy

the supply of food and clothing that the
natives were manufacturing for the commu-
In the 1770s, the policy of the church
(through the Spanish government) was to
keep the land in the hands of the church as
the natives were not yet trained to handle the
responsibility of sustaining themselves
(although they had been doing this for thou-
sands of years). Virtually no land grants were
doled out to Indians or Spanish citizens. The
rapid change of leadership in the early
1820s changed when Mexico began admin-
istrating the Spanish Empire on the North
American continent. The Mexican govern-
ment began rewarding those who had served
in the military with land grants and it
became easier for any reputable Mexican to
acquire land if he had an espediente and
diseno (petition and crude map) and $12 to
complete the transaction. Almost anyone
could become a landholder and a don.
Hundreds applied and received land grants
(ranchos). A survey was necessary but not
always completed in the presence of the
Alacade and other important officials of the
community. The act of an official survey as
the Americans required was not even attempt-
ed for most grants. Usually, the boundary of
the Rancho was determined by a log or a tree,
a rock at one or more corners, a pond of water
or a creek (that may or may not have flowed
year around) or other superficial marks.
One of the smallest land grants went to
Signora Juana Briones, in North Beach, the
Ojo de Agua De Figueroa in 1833. Her hus-
band, a soldier, had been abusing her and the
commandant recommended she live off of
Presidio. On the tip of the Peninsula (in San
Francisco territory), the designation of
Yerba Buena as a to-be-developed city site in
1836 rendered a change of attitude for land
grant giving. Rancho Pajare de Arroyo
(Richmond District) was granted in 1836,
followed by Rancho Rincon de las Salinas
Potrero Viejo (1839), Rancho Camaritas,
Rancho Potrero Nuevo (1841), Rancho
Rincon (1844), Rancho San Miguel (1845).
Many others were supposedly granted during
the American transition but most proved
The Peninsula scene was a little more
serene compared with the San Francisco
grants. Many of the grantees were serving or
had served in the military and most were
large with great agriculture potential.
In 1837, Rancho Laguna de la Merced
Francisco de Haro, son-in-law of the patri-
arch Jose Antonio Sanchez (Granted of
Rancho Buri Buri) received the rancho that
was partly in San Francisco and partly in
San Mateo County. This was originally
granted to Jose Antonio Galindo in 1835. In
the 1850s and 1860s, legal problems
almost caused a war in the Colma/Daly City
territory (which was not a Rancho land)
before the government stepped in to settle
boundaries. Rancho Buri Buri (15,000 acres)
was granted to Jose Antonio Sanchez in
1836. He wanted the San Mateo Rancho for
one of his sons but did not attain it, howev-
er he did get a grant in the San Andreas
Valley for his grandson, Dominico Feliz.
Rancho Canada de Guadalupe de la
Visitacion y Rodeo Viejo, which went to an
American turned Spanish citizen. Jacob
Leese married the sister of General Mariano
Guadalupe Vallejo, was granted two square
leagues (9,500 acres) of land in 1841. This
too resided in both counties and was to
become San Bruno Mountain, Brisbane and
the southern area of San Francisco
(Visitacion Valley).
The biggest grant in San Mateo County
went to the Arguello heirs. This took many
years of litigation before it was confirmed. It
comprised 35,250 acres and covered the area
between San Mateo Creek, south to San
Francisquito Creek, the Bay to approximate-
ly Skyline Boulevard.
Rancho San Pedro of Pacifica was granted to
Jose Antonio Sanchez’s son, Francisco
Sanchez, in 1839. Francisco became the rich-
est man in San Mateo County in the 1850s.
To the south of Montara Mountain, isolat-
ed from the main Bay area, El Corral de Terra
was split in two parts, the northern part
going to Palomaries and the part south of El
Arroyo de en Medio to Vasquez.
Spanishtown developed around the land
granted to Candelario Miramontes, south of
Pilarcitos Creek. This area is now Half
Moon Bay.
The Alviso brothers acquired land south of
the Miramontes and south of this, two square
leagues was granted to Antonino Buelno.
This was named San Gregorio. Rancho El
Pescadero was granted to Juan Jose
Gonzales, mayordomo (foreman) of the
Santa Cruz Mission.
Finally Butano (one square league) and
Punta del Ano Nuevo (four square leagues)
grants completed the coast grants.
On the Bay side, three very important
grants that had great economic potential
were given. Canada Raymundo had enor-
mous trees (redwoods) that were to play
important early development in the
American California. This was given to
Englishman John Coppinger, a friend of
Gov. Juan B. Alvarado. To its south was
Corte Madera (where the timber was
obtained) which was granted to two men,
Domingo Peralta and Maximo Martinez.
These two grants generated much wealth for
the development of the Peninsula.

GAZACITY, Gaza Strip — Israel withdrew
most of its ground troops from the Gaza
Strip on Sunday in an apparent winding
down of the nearly monthlong operation
against Hamas that has left more than 1,800
Palestinians and more than 60 Israelis dead.
Even as Israel said it was close to complet-
ing its mission, heavy fighting raged in
parts of Gaza, with at least 10 people killed
in what U.N. and Palestinian officials said
was an Israeli airstrike near a U.N. shelter.
The United States lashed out at Israel, saying
it was “appalled” by the “disgraceful” attack.
And with Hamas officials vowing to con-
tinue their fight, it remained uncertain
whether Israel could unilaterally end the war.
Israel launched its military operation in
Gaza on July 8 in response to weeks of
heavy rocket fire, carrying out hundreds of
airstrikes across the crowded seaside territo-
ry. It then sent in ground forces July 17 in
what it said was a mission to destroy the
tunnels used by Hamas to carry out attacks.
Hamas has fired more than 3,000 rock-
ets into Israel during what has turned
into the bloodiest round of fighting
ever between the two enemies.
Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israeli military
spokesman, confirmed the bulk of ground
troops had been pulled out of Gaza after the
military concluded it had destroyed most of
the tunnel network.
He said Israel had detected some 30 tun-
nels that were dug along the border for what
he called a “synchronized attack” on Israel.
“We’ve caused substantial damage to this
network to an extent where we’ve basically
taken this huge threat and made it minimal,”
he said. The army had thousands of troops
in Gaza at the height of the operation.
In southern Israel, armored vehicles could
be seen rolling slowly onto the back of large
flatbed trucks near the Gaza border, while sol-
diers folded flags from atop a tank and rolled
up their belongings and sleeping bags.
Lerner said, however, that the operation
was not over and that Israel would continue
to target Hamas’ rocket-firing capabilities
and its ability to infiltrate Israel.
The Israeli military said early Monday it
would hold fire for a seven-hour “humanitar-
ian window” beginning at 10 a.m. (0700
GMT), saying the truce would not apply to
areas where troops were still operating. The
military said it would respond to any attacks
during that time.
While Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu has vowed to press on against
Hamas, he is coming under international
pressure to halt the fighting because of the
heavy civilian death toll.
U.N. officials say more than three-quar-
ters of the dead have been civilians, includ-
ing the 10 people killed Sunday at a U.N.
school that has been converted into a shel-
ter in the southern town of Rafah.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
called the attack a “moral outrage and a
criminal act” and demanded a quick investi-
gation, while the U.S. State Department
condemned the strike in unusually strong
According to witnesses, Israeli strikes
hit just outside the main gates of the
school. The Red Crescent, a charity, said
the attack occurred while people were in
line to get food from aid workers. Gaza
health official Ashraf al-Kidra said in addi-
tion to the dead, 35 people were wounded.

BEIJING — Astrong earthquake in south-
ern China’s Yunnan province toppled thou-
sands of homes on Sunday, killing at least
367 people and injuring more than 1,800.
About 12,000 homes collapsed in Ludian,
a densely populated county located around
366 kilometers (277 miles) northeast of
Yunnan’s capital, Kunming, China’s official
Xinhua News Agency reported.
The magnitude-6.1 quake struck at 4:30
p.m. at a depth of 10 kilometers (6 miles),
according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Its
epicenter was in Longtoushan township, 23
kilometers (14 miles) southwest of the city
of Zhaotong, the Ludian county seat.
Ma Liya, a resident of Zhaotong, told
Xinhua that the streets there were like a “bat-
tlefield after bombardment.” She added that
her neighbor’s house, a new two-story build-
ing, had toppled, and said the quake was far
worse than one that struck the area in 2012
and killed 81 people.
“The aftermath is much, much worse than
what happened after the quake two years
ago,” Ma said. “I have never felt such strong
tremors before. What I can see are all ruins.”
Xinhua said at least 367 people were killed
in the quake, with 1,881 injured.
Most of the deaths — 357 — were in
Zhaotong City, Xinhua said. Another 10
people were killed in Quijing City.
News reports said rescuers were still trying
to reach victims in more remote towns
Sunday night.
Photos on Weibo, China’s Twitter-like
social media site, showed rescuers searching
through flattened buildings and people
injured amid toppled bricks.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
offered “his condolences to the Chinese
Government and the families of those
killed,” according to a statement from his
office. The statement said the U.N. is ready
to “lend its assistance to efforts to respond
to humanitarian needs” and “to mobilize any
international support needed.”
Many of the homes that collapsed in
Ludian, which has a population of about
429,000, were old and made of brick, Xinhua
said, adding that electricity and telecommu-
nications were cut off in the county.
The mountainous region where the quake
occurred is largely agricultural, with farming
and mining the top industries, and is prone
to earthquakes.

ATLANTA— Asecond American mission-
ary stricken with Ebola is expected to fly
Tuesday to the U.S. for treatment, following
a colleague who was admitted over the week-
end to Emory University Hospital’s infec-
tious disease unit.
A Liberian official confirmed to the
Associated Press plans for Nancy Writebol
to depart with a medical evacuation team.
The official, Information Minister Lewis
Brown, said the evacuation flight was sched-
uled to leave West Africa between 1 a.m. and
1.30 a.m. local time Tuesday.
Writebol is in good spirits despite her
diagnosis, said the pastor of her hometown
church in Charlotte, North Carolina, who
has spoken with her husband, David.
“She is holding her own,” the Rev. John
Munro said. Munro’s Calvary Church is a
nondenominational evangelical congrega-
tion that sponsors the Writebols as mis-
sionaries in Liberia, one of the West African
nations grappling with the worst outbreak
of Ebola ever recorded there.
Writebol’s mission team partner, Dr. Kent
Brantly, was improving Sunday after he was
admitted to Emory’s quarantine unit a day ear-
lier, according to a statement from his wife.
“Our family is rejoicing over Kent’s safe
arrival, and we are confident that he is
receiving the very best care,” Amber
Brantly said, adding that she was able to see
her husband Sunday.
Brantly and Nancy Writebol served on the
same mission team treating Ebola victims
when they contracted the virus themselves.
Brantly was serving as a physician in the
hospital compound near Monrovia, Liberia,
when he became infected. They said Writebol
worked as a hygienist whose role included
decontaminating those entering or leaving
the Ebola treatment area at that hospital.
There is no cure for Ebola, which causes
hemorrhagic fever that kills at least 60 per-
cent of the people it infects in Africa. Ebola
spreads through close contact with bodily
fluids and blood, meaning it is not spread as
easily as airborne influenza or the common
cold. Africa’s under-developed health care
system and inadequate infection controls
make it easier for the Ebola virus to spread
and harder to treat.
Any modern hospital using standard
infection-control measures should be able
to handle it, according to medical experts,
and Emory’s infectious disease unit is one of
about four in the U.S. that is specially
equipped to test and treat people exposed to
the most dangerous viruses.
Patients are quarantined, sealed off from
anyone who is not in protective gear. Lab
tests are conducted inside the unit, ensuring
that viruses don’t leave the quarantined area.
Family members can see and communicate
with patients only through barriers.
Brantly arrived Saturday under stringent
protocols, flying from West Africa to
Dobbins Air Reserve base outside Atlanta in
a small plane equipped to contain infectious

Bikes on Caltrain
I use Caltrain for business and per-
sonal travel on a regular basis. Due to
the nature of my travel, I use different
destinations almost every time I
board the train, which makes bring-
ing my bike a necessity. Without the
Bikes on Board program, I would be
forced back into my car for these
trips, costing Caltrain a regular fare,
and adding another car to our congest-
ed roads.
It is very important that the
Peninsula Corridor Electrification
Project environmental impact report
includes an evaluation of the benefit s
of bringing bicycles on board
Caltrain. The reasons are simple but
critical. People who bring bikes on
the train take cars off the road. Bikes
on the train take cars out of the park-
ing lots, making room for other
Caltrain customers to park.
Caltrain has seen consistent
increases in ridership from passen-
gers who bring bikes on the train,
even when overall ridership dropped.
Every time additional bicycle carriage
space has been added on the trains, it
fills beyond capacity at peak travel
times. This shows the customer
demand for the service.

Bike support on new trains
Caltrain is expected to release its
response to public comment for its
electrification environmental impact
report within a few months. Back in
March, my written comment included
the request that the benefits of bikes
on board be considered and evaluated
as part of the EIR scope and work.
I purposefully got rid of my vehicle
because I knew I could take my bike
on Caltrain to get to my office in San
Mateo. In addition, I asked that there
be enough places to store bikes
onboard. Currently, the older gallery
trains hold more bikes than the new
ones, and as a result I have been
bumped many times from the newer
trains. Every time I ride Caltrain, I
see more and more bikes, currently at
13 percent of ridership but only lim-
ited due to capacity. Projections show
that that trend is going to push the
limits of Caltrain’s bike capacity to
overflowing by the 2019 launch of
the new system to well over 20 per-
cent of Caltrain’s ridership.
Including bikes in electrification is
essential to Caltrain’s future in pro-
viding an efficient and environmen-
tally friendly commute.

San Carlos Charter Learning
Center a national treasure
When the San Carlos Charter
Learning Center opened in August
1994, it was the first charter school
in California and only the second one
in the nation. Former superintendent
Don Shalvey envisioned it as place to
try out new ideas. Any ideas that did
not work could be ended quickly with-
out red tape, while successful ideas
could and were expanded to other San
Carlos schools and elsewhere. Its suc-
cess is why it is still in existence two
decades later and is the longest con-
tinuously operating charter school in
the United States. Although I have
since moved to Palo Alto, I remember
my daughter’s years there fondly. It
helps to make San Carlos unique —
part of what makes San Carlos “the
City of Good Living.” Please, citi-
zens of San Carlos, please unite and
work together to find a place for it
somewhere in San Carlos.

The letter writer is the

I enjoyed the article about the
ceasefire negotiated by John Kerry
(“Gaza truce comes after days of push-
ing for a deal” in the Aug. 1 edition of
the Daily Journal). Too bad it was old
news by the time I read it. The people
of Gaza need a break as do the people
in Israel. Within 90 minutes (the time
of a soccer game) Hamas broke the
agreement by killing two members of
the IDF and kidnapping a third. Israel
has responded with force. It looks to
me that the prospects for a real cease-
fire will come when Hamas is dis-
armed and is no longer a credible
threat to Israel.
No one should be surprised that a
terrorist organizaton like Hamas that
stores rockets in UN schools would
break a cease-fire agreement. Maybe
the world will finally realize who
Israel is dealing with.

News and Observer, Raleigh, North
o be a missionary or a health
care worker who tends to the
poor has always required an
admirable level of compassion, but
now in West Africa it also requires
remarkable courage.
An outbreak of the terrifying Ebola
virus in several West African nations
is putting those who care for its vic-
tims at great risk. Some, such as
Liberia’s top health official, Dr.
Samuel Brisbane, have already paid
with their lives.
Others have contracted the disease
and are struggling to survive. Two
are Americans affiliated with the
Boone-based missionary group
Samaritan’s Purse.
One of them is Nancy Writebol of
Charlotte, North Carolina. Writebol
and her husband, David, had been
working in Liberia and chose to stay
on despite the Ebola threat.
Nancy Writebol, a hygienist,
decontaminated those entering and
leaving the Ebola care area at the hos-
pital. She is now gravely ill and
being treated in the Liberian capital
of Monrovia. She is being kept in
isolation, and her husband cannot
directly comfort her.
Also infected is Dr. Kent Brantly, a
33-year-old medical director for the
Ebola care center on the outskirts of
Monrovia run by Samaritan’s Purse.
Brantly of Fort Worth, Texas, is in
serious condition but recognized his
symptoms early and has a better
chance of surviving. The highly con-
tagious virus has killed nearly 700
people in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra
Leone since the outbreak surfaced ear-
lier this year.
In a painful contrast to the compas-
sion and courage showed by Writebol
and Brantly, fear of Ebola has panicked
some local residents who blame health
workers for the spread of the disease.
Health workers have been threatened
and blocked from entering some vil-
lages where infected people are.
Despite the threats of disease,
Writebol and Brantly stayed to help.
May their good deeds be matched by
the good fortune of recovery.

The Draper Dream
or, Not in my state
im Draper has a dream to divide California into six
states. He hopes his proposition will be on the
November 2016 ballot. There is little chance that
his initiative will pass or be implemented if it does pass.
So why is he doing this and investing $5.2 million to
date? His dream could be California’s worse nightmare.
His actions are of particular concern in San Mateo,
where the city’s dream for the continued rejuvenation of
downtown rests in part on the success of Draper
University (a school to
launch entrepreneurs and
innovators), a for-profit
enterprise, housed at the
long vacant Benjamin
Franklin Hotel on Third
It is one of numerous
Draper land acquisitions in
downtown including, The
Collectible, a former
antique store, which now
houses offices for his Hero
City where Draper
University students can
showcase their entrepreneur
ideas. After winning an
award from the San Mateo
Area Chamber of Commerce’s Economic Development
Growth Enterprise last year (he wore a superhero costume
under his suit to accept the honor), Draper’s ballot
shenanigans make one wonder.
Timothy Cook Draper, 56, is an innovator and a venture
capitalist (third generation; father was president of the
Import Export Bank of the United States.) He has a degree
in electrical engineering from Stanford and an MBAfrom
Harvard Business School. In 1985, he founded Draper
Fisher Jurvetson. According to the firm’s website,
Draper’s suggestion to use “viral marketing” in web-based
email to geometrically spread an Internet product to its
market was instrumental to the successes of Hotmail and
Yahoo mail, and has been adopted as a standard marketing
technique by hundreds of businesses. Recently, Draper
purchased for an undisclosed price nearly 30,000
Bitcoins, which had been seized by U.S. marshals from
the Silk Road marketplace and auctioned to the public.
He was number 52 on the list of the 100 most influential
Harvard Alumni, and number seven on the Forbes Midas
List. He was named Always-On number one top venture
capital deal maker for 2008. He was awarded the
Commonwealth Club’s Distinguished Citizen Award for
achievements in green and sustainable energy.
This is not the first time Draper has become involved in
politics or launching ballot measures. He helped finance a
previous initiative on school choice (vouchers) which
failed. He also served on the State Board of Education. His
new “ Six Californias” to create six new small states and
dissolve the present one seems to have collected enough
signatures to qualify for the ballot. Draper feels one
California isn’t working because of an unfriendly business
climate, failing schools and a crumbling infrastructure.
What makes the proposal so bizarre is that it would take
thriving economy and turn it into six unequal parts. No
economies of scale. You would have more government,
not less. Six governors, many more state legislators, six
who knows how many separate departments for each enti-
t y. While locally, schools and cities are trying to consoli-
date to save money, Draper is hoping to fix the California
economy by dividing it. Six small lopsided states don’t
seem likely to improve a business climate, improve
schools or build new infrastructure. What is most surpris-
ing is that a venture capitalist from Silicon Valley it not
thinking globally, but provincially. We have heard about
Nimbys, or Not in my backyard. What about Nimsys, Not
in my state? If you need my water, go fend for yourself.

Afund set up by General Motors to pay
for deaths and injuries caused by its vehi-
cles with faulty ignitions is accepting
The five-month filing period that
began Friday is part of the fallout from
General Motors’ recall of 2.6 million
small cars beginning in February.
That recall forced General Motors
Corp. to acknowledge it knew about the
defective switches for more than a decade
and triggered a sweeping safety review
that has resulted in a series of additional
recalls. About 29 GM vehicles have been
recalled this year.
Drivers, passengers and pedestrians
killed or hurt by one of the defective GM
vehicles can file a claim through Dec.
GM has already absorbed a $400 mil-
lion charge to cover the potential pay-
ments to be made by the fund.
The bills could run even higher because
the fund has no cap. The Detroit-based
company advised investors last month
that it might have to set aside an addi-
tional $200 million to compensate the
victims of its blunders.
About 40 claims had been filed by late
Friday night, said Camille Biros, a
spokeswoman for the fund’s administra-
t or, Kenneth Feinberg .
GM has traced 13 deaths to the defec-
tive switches, but some members of
Congress investigating the problems
peg the death toll at nearly 100 people.
The defective vehicles covered by the
fund cover a range of GM vehicles,
including the Chevrolet Cobalt and
Saturn Ion. The ignition switches in
those cars could suddenly slip from “run”
to “accessory,” causing engines to stall.
That caused the power steering to shut
off, making cars harder to control and
disabling air bags in crashes.
GM’s faulty-ignition fund taking victims’ claims
Technician Dan Lutka closes the door on a Chevy Traverse after working on a seat belt that
was recalled at Raymond Chevrolet in Antioch,Illinois,.The news about deadly crashes linked
to a faulty ignition switch,followed by wave upon wave of recalls,did not bode well for General
Motors dealers earlier this year.

William Kistler views retirement like
someone tied to the tracks and watching a
train coming. It’s looming and threatening,
but there’s little he can do.
Kistler, a 63-year-old resident of Golden,
Colorado, has been unable to build up a nest
egg for himself and his wife with his modest
salary at a nonprofit. He has saved little in a
401(k) over the past decade, after spending
most of his working life self-employed.
That puts him far behind many wealthier
Americans approaching retirement.
“There is not enough to retire with,” he
said. “It’s completely frightening, to tell
you the truth. And I, like a lot of people, try
not to think about it too much, which is
actually a problem.”
With traditional pensions becoming rarer
in the private sector, and lower-paid work-
ers less likely to have access to an employ-
er-provided retirement plan, there is a grow-
ing gulf in the retirement savings of the
wealthy and people with lower incomes.
That, experts say, could exacerbate an
already widening wealth gap across
America, as more than 70 million baby
boomers head into retirement - many of
them with skimpy reserves.
Because retirement savings are ever more
closely tied to income, the widening gulf
between the rich and those with less prom-
ises to continue - and perhaps worsen - after
workers reach retirement age. That is likely
to put pressure on government services and
lead even more Americans to work well into
what is supposed to be their golden years.
Increasingly, financial security for
retirees reflects how much they have accu-
mulated during their working career - things
like 401(k) accounts, other savings and
home equity.
Highly educated, dual income couples
tend to do better under this system. The
future looks bleaker for people with less
education, lower incomes or health issues,
as well as for single parents, said Karen
Smith, a senior fellow at the Urban
Institute, a Washington think tank.
“We do find rising inequality,” said Smith,
who added that it’s a problem if those at the
top are seeing disproportionate gains from
economic growth.
Incomes for the highest-earning 1 percent
of Americans soared 31 percent from 2009
through 2012, after adjusting for inflation,
according to data compiled by Emmanuel
Saez, an economist at University of
California, Berkeley. For everyone else, it
inched up an average of 0.4 percent.
Researchers at the liberal Economic
Policy Institute say households in the top
fifth of income saw median retirement sav-
ings increase from $45,539 in 1989 to
$160,000 in 2010 in inflation-adjusted dol-
lars. For households in the bottom fifth,
median retirement savings were down from
$8,433 in 1989 to $8,000 in 2010, adjust-
ed for inflation. The calculations did not
include households without retirement sav-
Employment Benefit Research Institute
research director Jack VanDerhei found that
in households where annual income is less
than $25,000, nine in 10 saved less than
$10,000, up slightly from 2009. For
households with six-figure incomes, 42 per-
cent saved at least $250,000, up from 34
percent five years earlier.
The days of retirees being able to count
on set monthly payments from pensions
continue to fade among non-government
workers. Only 13 percent of private-sector
workers now participate in “defined benefit”
plans, compared with a third of such work-
ers in 1985. They’ve been eclipsed by
“defined contribution” plans, often
401(k)s, in which employers match a por-
tion of employee contributions.
Americans know they need to save for
retirement. The trick for many is actually
doing it. It’s estimated that about half of pri-
vate-sector workers don’t take part in a
retirement plan at their current job.
“Over the years, all I’ve been able to do,
especially as a single parent, is just pay
your bills every month,” said Susan
McNamara, a 62-year-old adjunct professor
from the Boston area. “Anything that’s left
over is used up when your car breaks down
or when the furnace breaks down. ... There’s
never anything left over, ever. ”
McNamara is divorced and her son is now
grown. But she has had heart issues linked
to cancer in 2004 and related financial wor-
ries. She sold her home to meet expenses.
McNamara has a defined contribution plan
from past stints as a full-time professor, but
its balance is under $50,000.
Or consider Kistler, who makes $41,000 a
year working as a benefits counselor for a
nonprofit health care provider. He has no
substantial savings beyond the 401(k)
worth roughly $19,000, and he has debt. He
plans to keep working.
Kistler is philosophical about being on
the short end of a retirement gap, though he
wonders what will happen when boomers in
his financial situation begin retiring by the
“This next 10 to 15 years is going to be
quite interesting,” he said.
Not so golden: Wealth gap lasting into retirement

TOLEDO, Ohio — Toxins possibly from
algae on Lake Erie fouled the water supply of
the state’s fourth-largest city Saturday, forc-
ing officials to issue warnings not to drink
the water and the governor to declare a state
of emergency as worried residents descended
on stores, quickly clearing shelves of bot-
tled water.
“It looked like Black Friday,” said Aundrea
Simmons, who stood in a line of about 50
people at a pharmacy before buying four
cases of water. “I have children and elderly
parents. They take their medication with
water. ”
The city advised about 400,000 residents
in Toledo, most of its suburbs and a few
areas in southeastern Michigan not to brush
their teeth with or boil the water because
that would only increase the toxin’s concen-
tration. The mayor also warned that children
should not shower or bathe in the water and
that it shouldn’t be given to pets.
Toledo issued the warning just after mid-
night after tests at one treatment plant
showed two sample readings for
microsystin above the standard for con-
Gov. John Kasich said it was too early to
say how long the advisory will last or what
caused toxins to spike suddenly in the drink-
ing water.

this,” he told The Associated Press. “When
it comes to this water, we’ve got be very

Algae blooms during the summer have
become more frequent and troublesome
around the western end of Lake Erie, the
shallowest of the five Great Lakes.

NEWYORK — On a weekend full of fine pitch-
ing performances and brisk games, Madison

His two-hit shutout was far more than the Giants
needed, and two home runs by Hunter Pence helped
them beat the New York Mets 9-0 Sunday.
Bumgarner also singled, walked and scored two
“He helps himself as much as any pitcher,”
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “You throw a
shutout, it’s always impressive, but the way he
pitched today, it’s fun to watch.
Bumgarner (13-8) beat the Mets again, running
his record to 3-0 in five games against them and
helping the Giants to their third win in 10 games.
Brandon Belt and Buster Posey also went deep for
San Francisco.
The left-hander struck out 10 and walked one in
his second career shutout (the other was a one-hit-
ter in 2012 against the Reds), wrapping up
Sunday’s gem with a punch out of pinch-hitter
Travis d’Arnaud to wrap up the game in a tidy 94
“Fastball command is what set up that whole
game for us.” Bumgarner said. “When you’re
feeling good on days like today, you can go
after guys.”

Vogelsong gave up two hits

CANTON, Ohio — With running back
David Wilson out indefinitely, rookie Andre
Williams showed glimpses he can provide
the New York Giants’ ground game some
fresh legs.
The fourth-round draft pick and Heisman
Trophy finalist out of Boston College had
seven carries for 48 yards and scored on a 3-
yard run in a 17-13 victory over the Buffalo
Bills on Sunday night in the preseason-open-
ing Hall of Fame Game.
Rookie receiver Corey Washington scored
the go-ahead touchdown on a 73-yard pass up
the right sideline from backup Ryan Nassib
with 13:18 remaining. Washington reached
back to catch the partly under-thrown pass,
then stepped around flat-footed defender
Kamaal McIlwain.
Williams’ performance was encouraging for
the Giants after Wilson sustained his second
neck injury in less than a year during training
Getting additional playing time as the No. 2
back behind newly acquired starter Rashad
Jennings, Williams provided a 1-2 punch to
the Giants’ new-look running game that was
slowed by injuries last season. And the two
took the pressure off quarterback Eli Manning.
Though Manning lost a fumble while being
sacked on the second series, Williams helped
bail out the offense on the third possession.
He had five carries for 37 yards, which he
capped with a strong run up the middle to put
the Giants ahead 7-3 in the final minute of the
first quarter.
Williams led the nation with 2,177 yards
rushing last season, the fifth highest total in

“We didn’t get off to a great start,” Manning
said, referring to his fumble. “The first game
back, you’re going to work out some of the
kinks. ... I thought there were some improve-
ments. It was a good start.”
For Buffalo, starting quarterback EJ Manuel
had several lapses during two series. He com-
pleted just 2 of 7 attempts for 19 yards, and
nearly had a pass intercepted by linebacker

Had it not been for a brief letdown in
group play, it could have been a much more
auspicious outcome for the Stanford Club
18-and-under A-team at the Club Water Polo
National Junior Olympics.
After leading for most of Friday’s prelimi-
nary qualifier at Stanford University’s
against Newport Water Polo, Stanford Club
was overtaken midway through the fourth
quarter on a close-range shot from the center
position and ultimately fell 5-4. It was
Stanford Club’s second loss in group play,
forcing the team to the second tier of 12
teams in bracket play to compete for — at
best — 13th place.
“We kind of lost it,” Stanford Club attack-
er Sami Strutner said. “We were ahead for the
whole game, and then in the fourth quarter
we started having defensive lapses. … Then
we just weren’t able to tie it up. That was
pretty upsetting.”
Stanford Club ran a designed play on its
final possession and succeeded in getting
the ball to attacker Caroline Anderson. Her
shot missed high though, and Newport’s
lead held up to force Stanford Club to the
secondary playoff bracket.
After two wins to advance to Sunday’s sec-
ondary-bracket final, Stanford Club fell by
another one-goal margin, falling 12-11 to
Huntington Beach Water Polo at Gunn High
School in the final match of the season to
settle for 14th place in the tourney. Leading
by as many as three goals in the first half,
Stanford Club ultimately surrendered the
lead on a fourth-quarter counterattack by
Huntington Beach.
“Everybody was a little bummed we didn’t
win our last game,” Stanford Club’s Niki
Reynolds said. “But we were happy with our
overall performance (in the tournament).”
For Stanford Club, there was plenty to be
happy about. Through eight Junior Olympic
games, Stanford Club posted a 5-3 record
and outscored its opponents 88-54. The

STANFORD — Serena Williams stared at the
court, took a deep breath and seemed to clear
her head after falling behind in the first set.
She dominated the rest of the way.
Playing her first tourna-
ment since her departure
from Wimbledon because
of equilibrium problems,
the top-ranked Williams
won her WTA-leading
fourth title of the year,
beating third-seeded
Angelique Kerber 7-6(1),
6-3 on Sunday in Bank of
the West Classic.
Kerber, 0-4 in finals this
season, won five straight games to go up 5-1
and was serving for the first set at 5-2.
Williams saved two set points and went to win
five games in a row.
“I blinked my eye and I was down 1-5,”
Williams said. “Angelique was playing well
and I thought ‘What’s going on?’ I tried to
relax, not think about anything and just do the
right thing.”
The eighth-ranked Kerber forced a tiebreak-
er, but Williams took the first five points.
“It’s a good thing that it happened,”
Williams said. “When I’m not playing great I
know I can make some kind of comeback.”
Williams didn’t play well in any of the first
sets this week but always found a way to win.
“I’ve been training hard all year and hope-
fully that pays off, especially after

Manuel never looked off his intended target
Sammy Watkins and was fortunate to have
Williams bat the ball down.
Watkins, the Bills’first-round pick, was held
without a catch after being targeted three
times. Two passes from Manuel directed
Watkins’ way were tipped. Manuel also was
late in finding Watkins flying up the left side-
line, and overthrew him by a few yards.
It was a disappointing debut for Watkins,
who had made numerous highlight-reel catches
during the first two weeks of training camp.
Though Manuel said “he felt good,” running
back Fred Jackson said there’s plenty the Bills
need to correct.
“We were OK. Not where we want to be,”
Jackson said.
Bills backup Jeff Tuel hit Robert Woods

The Bills are coming off a 6-10 season in
which they extended their playoff drought to
14 seasons — the NFL’s longest active streak.

SANTACLARA — Quinton Dial put a pun-
ishing hit on running back Alfonso Smith late
in 11-on-11 work. Tony Jerod-Eddie pounded
Jonathan Martin not once but twice, even send-
ing him to his backside.
In their first audition to become San
Francisco’s starting nose tackle, Dial and
Jerod-Eddie each showed off impressive physi-
cal strength in the middle of the defensive line
Sunday. They have a tough job to replace Glenn
Dorsey, who went down with a torn left biceps
on Friday and will need surgery. While he isn’t
being ruled out for the entire 2014 season, the
recovery is expected to be extensive — per-
haps three to four months.
“It was kind of a freaky thing,” defensive
coordinator Vic Fangio said Sunday.
“Obviously, very disappointed for Glenn and
him personally. He was in great shape. Played
great for us last year.”
The practice Sunday was a physical one away
from the defensive line, too. Two days after
wideout Anquan Boldin was sent to the locker
room, cornerback Chris Culliver got banished
to the sideline by coach Jim Harbaugh, who
hollered to his team about clean play and not
needing to be overly phys-
ical against teammates.
The coach walked toward
the locker room chatting
briefly with Culliver and
patting him on the back.
Also in the mix to fill in
at nose tackle is Mike
Purcell, who signed as an
undrafted free agent last
year and would have to
make a big leap up the
depth chart from the prac-
tice squad.
“Tony did fine last year
when he was in there,”
Fangio said. “We just got to
get him re-honed up in
there. We may look at Dial
in there. So, we’ve got
three guys right there, and
we’ll go from that.”
There will be some mixing and matching
in the first preseason game Thursday at
Baltimore. Afront seven that has long been
among the most imposing in the NFL could
be missing several familiar faces now that
Dorsey is also down.
Linebacker NaVorro Bowman is recovering
from left knee surgery after suffering a devastat-
ing injury in the NFC championship game loss
at Seattle, while fellow linebacker Aldon Smith
could face a suspension from the league for his
off-field legal issues.
Yet Ian Williams, who began the 2013 sea-
son as starting nose tackle, continues to make
progress in his recovery from last year’s sea-
son-ending ankle injury with the hope he could
be ready sometime early in the season. He was
injured in a Week 2 loss at Seattle on a cut block
by Seattle right guard J.R. Sweezy. Williams
has undergone multiple surgeries and is current-
ly on the physically unable to perform list fol-
lowing an offseason setback. He went through
side-to-side movement drills Sunday.
Dial insists playing nose tackle suits him
well, given his physical, aggressive nature.
“I’m just a country boy,” Dial said with a grin.
At age 12 in Alabama, he started doing
chores that helped develop his toughness and
“Just being outside moving trees, cutting up
trees and being outside moving hay bales,”
Dial said. “Whatever needed to be done, I was
out there doing it. I used to get out there and cut
the grass.”
With the depth the 49ers have in their close-
knit defensive line group, everybody is confi-
dent San Francisco can adjust and succeed with-
out Dorsey.
“Look at how Dorsey got his. Ian was ahead
of him and he went down,” Demarcus Dobbs
said. “The good thing about our room, we’ve
got a lot of talent in our room. We’ve got guys
that can step up now that Dorsey’s gone. He had
an incredible year last year, he had big things
going for him this year. Injuries happen. Make
sure he gets better and Ian’s looking to come
back in the mix soon. “
Dial works on nose reads daily even while
focusing on his defensive end spot. He played
some nose tackle in college at Alabama.
“It’s going to come back to me, it’s just
going to become second nature to me,” he said.
“It’s going to be fun. We’ve got a great room of
guys who are going to come out here every day
and push each other. We’re going to be all right
on the D-line.”
NOTES: Dobbs, made an athletic intercep-
tion on a pass by Colin Kaepernick intended
for tight end Vernon Davis.
“It was a great play call. I just read the quar-
terback, read the play and the ball went right
there in my hands,” Dobbs said. “My only job
to do was to catch it, and I did that. They espe-
cially don’t expect defensive linemen to make
49ers search within for NT with Dorsey down

Angels 7, Rays 5
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Mike Trout hit
RBI double to key a five-run first inning and
the Los Angeles Angels beat the Tampa Bay
Rays 7-5 Sunday in a game delayed by a
power outage at Tropicana Field.
There was a 19-minute wait during the
third inning after lightning struck a nearby
power substation, causing some of the stadi-
um lights to go out.
Trout had three hits, walked and stole a
base. The Angels took
two of three and handed
the Rays their first series
loss since early July.
Trout and the Angels
took a quick lead against
Jake Odorizzi (7-9).
Angels starter Jered
Weaver (12-6) gave up six
hits and four walks, but
only two runs in six
innings. He is 4-0 lifetime at Tropicana Field.
Huston Street pitched the ninth for his
sixth save with the Angels.

OAKLAND — James Shields pitched quite a
gem for Kansas City. It certainly helped that
Oakland abandoned its usual patient approach
at the plate.
Shields pitched eight sharp innings for his
first win in nearly a month, and the Royals beat
the Athletics 4-2 on Sunday.
“This team was a free-hacking team today,
which is not really their game,” Shields said.
“They have a bunch of hitters over there that
were being aggressive and I was able to execute
my pitches early in the count.”
Shields (10-6) retired his first 15 batters
before Josh Reddick hit a leadoff homer in the
sixth. Alberto Callaspo then had a one-out sin-
gle before Sam Fuld lined into a double play.
The 32-year-old Shields (10-6) allowed two
runs and four hits. He walked none for the fifth
time this season.
“You watch the way that he’s pitching, it’s
like, ‘OK boys, let’s just give him a couple
runs and he’ll take it from there,”’ Kansas
City manager Ned Yost
said. “A good indicator
for him was he was man-
aging his pitch count.”
Shields threw 102
pitches while helping the
Royals to their ninth win
in 12 games.
“As far as I’m con-
cerned we can match up
with anyone, any team,
any starting rotation,” Shields said. “As
long as we go toe to toe with those guys
we’re going to be in every game.”
Reddick homered twice, getting to Shields
again in the eighth.
The A’s have the best record in baseball at
67-43, but have sputtered offensively since
trading cleanup hitter Yoenis Cespedes to
Boston on Thursday in a deal for ace Jon
Lester. They lead the stacked AL West by one
game over the Los Angeles Angels, who beat
Tampa Bay 7-5 on Sunday.
Oakland was without injured leadoff hitter
Coco Crisp, though it hardly mattered the way
Shields was pitching.
Shields allowed only three balls out of the
infield through the first five innings. One of
them was a deep fly to center by Josh
Donaldson in the first, the closest Oakland
came to getting a man on base before
Reddick’s home run.
“We just haven’t been our best offensively
here,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “Shields
was using all his pitches, going to the change,
to the cutter, and he had good command.”
Shields got his first win since he beat his for-
mer team, Tampa Bay, on July 7. Greg Holland
pitched the ninth for his AL-leading 31st save.
Nori Aoki’s RBI single in the fifth gave
Kansas City a 1-0 lead. Omar Infante followed
with a two-run double and later scored on a sin-
gle by Salvador Perez.
All the runs came against Scott Kazmir
Reddick has four home runs since coming
off the disabled list July 22. It’s the sixth
multihomer game of his career and second
this season.
Kazmir lost at the Oakland Coliseum for just
the second time this season. It’s also the first
time since June 24 that the left-hander allowed
more than two earned runs.

AL West watch
After splitting the first two games of
Western Region play — both in morning
games — Pacifica American was looking for-
ward to a primetime 7 p.m. start Sunday night.
Then Mother Nature intervened.
Due to anticipated lightning storms in the
San Bernardino area, Pacifica American’s
matchup with the Southern California team
from Encinitas was postponed. The game is
scheduled to be made up Monday evening at 7
p.m. at Al Houghton Stadium.
After falling 10-5 to the Hawaii squad from
Honolulu in Friday’s Western Region opener,
Pacifica American bounced back Saturday with
a 7-3 win over Arizona.
Cruise Thompson worked 4 1/3 innings to
earn the win Saturday, improving his postsea-
son record to 2-0. The left-hander threw the
maximum 85 pitches, allowing three runs on
five hits. Right-hander Chris Rodriguez
emerged in the fifth inning and fired 1 2/3
shutout innings to earn the save.
Elijah Ricks was 3 for 3 with a triple and
two RBIs, while Christian Falk went 2 for 4
with a double.
The Western Region is comprised of a six-
team field. Each team plays four games in
pool play, at the end of which the four teams
with the best records in regional play
advance to Friday’s semifinal. At 1-1,
Pacifica American is currently in third place.
Hawaii and Nevada are tied atop the bracket,
each at 2-0. Southern California and Utah are
each 0-1. Arizona is 0-2.

Christian reaches 1,200-hit plateau
Former Giants outfielder Justin Christian
turned in quite a week for Tampa Bay Rays
Triple-Aaffiliate Durham.
Christian — a former Aragon and Skyline
College standout — got cooking July 27
with his ninth home run of the year and just
kept swinging it, hitting safely in each of
the Bulls’ six games. He finished the week
hitting at a .407 clip (11 for 27), including
five doubles. Entering into play Sunday, he
was tied for fourth in the
International League with
29 doubles on the season.
And with an eighth-
inning single Aug. 1 at
Charlotte, Christian
reached the 1,200-hit
plateau, which he has
totaled over his 11-year
minor-league career.
Christian is currently
with his fifth organization. He has previous-
ly played in the Yankees, Orioles Giants and
Cardinals systems.

On Saturday night, New York’s Jacob deGrom
and Jake Peavy both took no-hitters into the
seventh inning.
Mets starter Bartolo Colon (10-9) was going
for win No. 200, but the Giants got to him with
a couple of home runs that barely cleared the
walls before he started to look eminently hit-
table in the three-run fifth inning. Pence’s two-
run shot in the third was a line drive that went
off the railing above the moved-in fence in left
field. Brandon Belt hit a towering fly to right
that tucked in just over the fence and inside the
pole there for a 3-0 lead.
“I was real surprised, after he gets going into
a game he actually gets better and better, today
he just really did not have his good stuff,” Mets
manager Terry Collins said.
Pence hit a solo shot off Dana Eveland in the
ninth inning.
“Each at bat is a completely new and separate
at-bat,” Pence said. “See the ball, hit the ball.
That’s my approach to hitting.”
Bumgarner singled and scored his first of
two runs on Pence’s double in the fifth, and
Posey drove him in before Pablo Sandoval’s
single ended Colon’s afternoon. The easygo-
ing 41-year-old right-hander tossed the ball
gently in the air on the mound as he waited
for Collins to remove him.
Colon allowed six runs and eight hits in 4 2/3
innings as he tried for his 200th career win.
The Giants entered Sunday’s game with two
home runs in their past 10 games, but added four
against New York pitching. Pence hit Nos. 14
and 15 this season, while Posey’s was his 13th
and Belt hit his 11th.

Dodgers to a 5-2 victory over the Chicago
Cubs on Saturday night.
Dee Gordon hit a two-out single against
Blake Parker (1-1), stole his major league-
leading 51st base and came home when
Ramirez drove a 1-0 pitch into the Dodgers’
bullpen in left field for his 12th homer after
a full-count walk to Justin Turner.
Jamey Wright (4-2)
allowed two hits over two
innings to get the victory
and help the Dodgers
increase their NL West
lead over San Francisco
to 3 1-2 games.
Junior Lake pushed a
bunt single past the right
of the mound with one out
in the Cubs’ seventh and
came all the way around on a double to right-
center by Arismendy Alcantara, tying the
score 2-all.

LONG POND, Pa. — Dale Earnhardt Jr. took
the lead off the final restart with three laps left
and won Sunday to complete a season sweep at
Pocono Raceway.
Earnhardt held off the hard-charging Kevin
Harvick to win for the third time this season.
Earnhardt is the first driver to sweep both races
at the track since Denny Hamlin in 2006.
He tweeted “Lookin for a broom” when he
landed in Pocono. He could use one in
Victory Lane.
Earnhardt also became the fifth straight
Hendrick Motorsports driver to win at
Pocono. His third win, he also won the
Daytona 500, ties him for the most in Sprint
Cup this season.
Harvick was second, followed by Joey
Logano, Clint Boywer and
Greg Biffle.
Earnhardt has his most
wins since he won six
times in 2004.
“I can’t believe we swept
Pocono,” Earnhardt said.
Earnhardt said before the
race his No. 88 Chevrolet
was better than his winner
in June. They were both
fast enough to reach
Victory Lane.
Earnhardt is enjoying a career renaissance
in the final season for crew chief Steve Letarte.
Hendrick Motorsports named Greg Ives the
crew chief for next season once Letarte heads
to the broadcast booth.
Earnhardt’s three wins are one shy of his
combined total from 2005-2013.
“We had a fast car all day,” Earnhardt said.
“Steve’s strategy was perfect at the end. I don’t
know if anyone knew what was going on
there, but it was pretty awesome.”
He had few cars left to hold off on the lead
lap after several potential contenders got
knocked out.
Hamlin triggered a 13-car wreck with 43
laps after he got sideways coming out of a
turn. Brian Vickers tried to avoid Hamlin
and slammed into Matt Kenseth to send cars
all over the track. The pileup looked like a
“Big One” straight out of Talladega or
Daytona, with smoking, dented and
destroyed cars littering the track. Tony
Stewart’s No. 14 Chevrolet rested atop Paul
Menard’s No. 27 Chevy.
“I can’t drive it because my car is on top of
the other car,” Stewart said over the radio.
Stewart, Vickers, Menard and Matt Kenseth
all visited the NASCAR care center.
“Big wrecks are always frustrating when
you’re in it,” Kenseth said.
Aric Almirola said he slammed on the breaks
as hard as he could, but still got “creamed from
behind and pushed into the wreck.”
Hamlin was able to straighten himself out
and stayed out.
Kyle Busch topped the lengthy list of stars
with an early exit when the No. 18 needed a
push to the garage with a variety of issues.
Six-time champion Jimmie Johnson finished
outside the top 10 for the fourth straight race.
He fell a lap down after his rear right tire
smacked the wall, rebounded to run fifth, then
a second blown tire forced him to the garage.
“It wasn’t the best weekend but we still
gave ourselves a chance at a win, if not a
top five, today and came up a little short,”
Johnson said.

AKRON, Ohio — From links of Britain to
the parkland of America, Rory McIlroy is on
top of the world again.
In his first start since a wire-to-wire win at
the British Open, McIlroy wiped out a three-
shot deficit in only three holes and closed with
a 4-under 66 on Sunday to win the Bridgestone
Invitational and return to No. 1 in the world.
And just like at Royal Liverpool two weeks
ago, Boy Wonder made it look easy.
Sergio Garcia had a three-shot lead going
into the final round at Firestone. McIlroy fired
off three straight birdies and already had the
lead when he stood on the fourth tee. He took
over the lead for good
with an 8-foot birdie putt
on the 11th hole, got
some breathing room
when Garcia made bogey
on the 15th hole, and the
25-year-old from Northern
Ireland cruised home to a
two-shot victory.
Garcia closed with a
71, though his runner-up
finish was enough to move him to No. 3 in
the world.
McIlroy became the 13th player with a
major and a World Golf Championship, and
joined Tiger Woods as the only players to win
them in consecutive starts.
Woods wasn’t around to see it.
Just four months after back surgery, and in
his third tournament since his return, Woods
injured his lower back when he landed with a
thud in the stand from an awkward stance atop
a bunker on the second hole. He withdrew
after a tee shot on the ninth hole, bending
over slowly and struggling to remove the tee
from the ground.
It was not clear he Woods could play in the
PGAChampionship next week.
McIlroy heads south to Valhalla with a full
head of steam. After a brief celebration with
the claret jug, he was determined to move for-
ward and chase more titles over the final four
months of the year. He backed it up with a
powerful performance on a soggy Firestone
course to take the top spot in the world from
Adam Scott.
McIlroy finished at 15-under 265 and won
$1.4 million, leaving him $765 short of
Bubba Watson on the PGATour money list.
More important was the world ranking.
He lost the No. 1 position in March 2013
when his game was in a downward spiral as he
was adjusting to a new equipment deal and
going through another management change.
But since winning the BMW PGA
Championship at Wentworth at May, his
game looks as strong as ever.
“It feels like a long time since I lost that
No. 1 spot, but it feels good to be back on
top,” McIlroy said. “Hopefully, I can keep it
for a while.”

Williams has beaten the left-hand-
ed Kerber four straight times and five
of six overall. All of their matches
have been in straight sets.
“I gave everything I could out
there,” Kerber said. “When she
was down she started hitting the
ball better. It’s a special thing she
has. On the important points, she
goes for it.”
Williams will be No. 1 for the
200th week in her career when the
rankings are announced Monday.
She is fifth on the career list, nine
weeks behind fourth-place Martina
“I feel like I’m just me. I don’t feel
any different from anyone else on
this planet,” Williams said. “To be
that of as that is pretty awesome.”
Williams extended her winning
streak to 13 matches in winning her
third title at Stanford in four years.
“It just says how much I love to
play here,” she said.
Kerber, who will rise to No. 7,
was the first German to reach the
final in the event since Sylvia
Hanika in 1987. Bettina Bunge, in
1983, was the last German to win
the tournament.
“I had a great week,” Kerber said.
“I played some great matches
against some good opponents.
She showed she’s the best player
in the world.”
Williams has not lost to a top-10
player this season. Kerber has never
beaten a No. 1 player.
Williams improved to 17-2 over-
all in matches played at Stanford.
She’s 30-5 on the season and 662-
117 for her career. Williams is 61-
17 in finals.
Williams has not played well at
Grand Slam events this year, failing

ers. And for our seniors, I’ll enjoy
watching them succeed with their
college teams.”
In Stanford Club’s final win of
the season — a 10-7 triumph over
Clovis Water Polo Saturday at
Gunn — the team showcased its
multi-faceted scoring approach.
Seven different players scored for
Stanford Club, with center Caitlin
Stuewe receiving many rave
reviews from her teammates.
Stuewe — a Sacred Heart Prep
grad who will attend USC in the
fall — fronted a quick and creative
attack which saw Stanford Club
jump out to a 6-1 lead at the half.
Courtney Batcheller got
Stanford Club on the board less
than two minutes into the match.
Just over a minute later, Stanford
Club bided its time with strong
perimeter passing before Strutner
struck from the post.
The tandem of Batcheller and
Strutner are accustomed to such
displays in the pool. Two of six
St. Francis alums on the club squad
this season, they celebrated cham-
pionships in each the West
Catholic Athletic League and the
Central Coast Section with the
Lancers this year.
“We had a knockout season,”
Strutner said.
In the second half, Clovis rallied
from behind to make a game of it.
By the midway point of the fourth
quarter, Clovis had outscored
Stanford Club 4-1 in the half. But
with Stanford Club clinging to an
8-6 lead, the defense emerged with
two consecutive shutdowns.
“Especially when they got a cou-
ple goals back-to-back and they
started gaining momentum, we
focused more on defense,”
Batcheller said. “We realized we
were up and we just focused on the
defensive play to make sure they
didn’t get anymore counterattacks.
We didn’t really concentrate on
scoring goals in that part of the
game to make sure we were covered
on [defense].”
But Stanford Club did score a
goal between the two defensive
stops when Anderson exacted a
shot from the right side by
exploiting a seam just inside the
“Being able to shut down
momentum is one of the best
things,” Batcheller said. “So, we
shut down their momentum really
quickly by getting our own
momentum up. So, answering
back is the best form of stopping
their momentum.”
Anderson and Reynolds finished
the game with a team-high two
goals apiece.
“Our players really played
together,” Utsumi said. “They
made sure they were communicat-
ing and they made the stops they
needed to.”
Sunday, Rose Bowl Water Polo
captured the gold medal with an 8-
3 win over San Diego Shores at
Stanford University’s Avery Pool.
In the third-place game at
Stanford’s Bellardi Pool, 680
Drivers Water Polo took the
bronze with a closely contested 8-
7 victory over SoCal.

Cubs 7, Dodgers 3
LOS ANGELES — Edwin Jackson pitched six innings for
his first victory in six weeks and Chris Coghlan hit a
tiebreaking two-run homer, leading the Chicago Cubs to a
7-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.
Jackson (6-11) allowed two runs and seven hits, struck
out six and walked none. The right-hander was 0-4 with a
7.39 ERA in his previous seven starts since beating
Pittsburgh 6-3 on June 20 at Wrigley Field.
Los Angeles right-hander Josh Beckett (6-6) gave up
three runs and six hits in four-plus innings in his fifth
straight start when he failed to get past the fifth. The three-
time All-Star is 3-5 with a 3.30 ERA in 10 starts since his
no-hitter on May 25 at Philadelphia.
The Dodgers dropped two of three to the team with the
third-worst record in the majors. Los Angeles’ NL West lead
was trimmed to 2 1/2 games over San Francisco, which won
9-0 at the New York Mets.

Eveni ng and Sat urday appt s
al so avai l abl e
ur neighbors told us about their
new intruders: mice. They were set
to buy sticky glue traps since
they are the “humane” ones, they said.
They figured they would trap the mice,
then gently pull them off the glue trap and
release them outside. The amount of force
it would take to pull a trapped mouse from
a glue trap would cause significant injuries
and probable loss of limbs. Our Wildlife
Rescue Center receives animals that own-
ers never intended to target with glue
traps, most notably birds. We received a
Great Horned Owl we couldn’t save since
he arrived in such bad shape. The owl
ingested a rat that had been stuck to a glue
trap. We guessed the owl also ingested
glue, which prevented it from opening its
beak and very likely also cause intestinal
blocking. Very sad, painful ending, just as
it is for targeted species, like rodents. We
advise residents to consider alternatives to
glue traps, and people are often surprised
to hear that we would actually suggest
snap traps over the glue traps. But they
are much more humane; the death is
instantaneous, as opposed to the pro-
longed suffering animals experience when
stuck to traps. They usually die of starva-
tion, but some will gnaw off their own
limbs to free themselves. Of course, snap
traps must be placed carefully so pets and
children aren’t injured. Residents might
also consider humane traps; these don’t
harm animals at all. The trap is baited with
food and a door closes behind the hungry
rodent. Then, the owner takes the trap to
an area away from their home to release
the rodent. Of course, the best form of
rodent control is prevention; removing
inadvertent food sources, shelter sources
(even ivy climbing a wall) and sealing all
holes around your home. Our experts can
suggest measures to make your home and
yard less attractive. Please call 650/340-

LOS ANGELES — “Guardians of the
Galaxy” blasted past expectations at the
weekend box office.
Marvel Studios’ cosmic romp starring
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista
as members of an intergalactic band of
rebels earned $94 million in its debut week-
end, according to studio estimates Sunday.
Ahead of its Friday debut, box office ana-
lysts initially projected that the comic
book adaptation would earn between $60
million and $75 million in North America.
The out-of-this-world launch gives
“Guardians” the biggest opening for a film
released in the traditionally low-key month
of August, a record previously held by the
$69.2 million debut of 2007’s “The Bourne
Ultimatum.” It also makes “Guardians” the
third largest opening of 2014, coming
behind the $95 million inauguration of
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” in
April and the $100 million launch of
“Transformers: Age of Extinction” in June.
“Guardians,” which also features Bradley
Cooper and Vin Diesel voicing the computer-
generated characters Rocket Raccoon and
Groot, was originally considered a risky
proposition for Marvel and “Guardians” dis-
tributor Walt Disney Co. because it features
more obscure characters from the Marvel
universe and is set almost entirely in outer
Despite any apprehension, Marvel was
betting on “Guardians,” written and
directed by “Slither” filmmaker James
Gunn, to be a blockbuster. The studio
announced at Comic-Con in San Diego
last month that a sequel is already set for
release in 2017. Marvel’s next films are
the follow-up “The Avengers: Age of
Ultron” and “Ant-Man” starring Paul Rudd
and Michael Douglas. Both movies are
coming in 2015.
Marvel comic book adaptations have
dominated 2014 with Sony Pictures’ “The
Amazing Spider-Man 2,” 20th Century
Fox’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and
Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: The
Winter Soldier” each arriving in first
place at the box office on their respective
opening weekends.
Paul Dergarabedian, senior media ana-
lyst at Rentrak, believes Marvel is
unstoppable at this point.
“This is a brand that transcends any
character within their universe,” he said.
“The mere mention of the name Marvel is
enough to get people into the movie the-
ater. That’s somewhat rare. Pixar obvious-
ly has a similar cachet, but for Marvel to
have four films this year open with over
$90 million is amazing. It’s unprecedent-
ed success.”

World's smallest Portable Jump Starter and
Back-up Power Supply
of the California Maritime Infrastructure
Bank and chairman of the California
Maritime Infrastructure Authority’s board.
The CMIB is not a commercial bank and
in 1995, after then state Sen. Milton Marks
carried legislation, was established by
ports and harbors in Sacramento, San
Diego, Stockton and Humboldt County,
Grenell said. The authority has helped fund
various projects such as wharves, berths,
docks, jetties and industrial facilities,
Grenell said.
The CMIB serves as a financing mecha-
nism by securing bonds its members can use
for infrastructure development, mainte-
nance or repair as well as for private entities
that wish to construct maritime businesses
on public land, Grenell said.
“I’m not running a bank, period. I work
for an agency (Harbor District) that is a
member of an agency (CMIB) along with
eight other agencies. And the Harbor
District joined because we see it as a poten-
tial alternative source of financing for proj-
ects at both of our harbors that we operate,”
Grenell said.
Any public maritime agency can join the
authority at no cost and the Harbor
District’s Board of Commissioners voted to
join in 2000, Grenell said.
The CMIB had its address listed as the
Harbor District’s South San Francisco
office. However, it was recently changed
to the Eureka address of its Executive
Director David Hull.
Grenell said years ago the CMIB had a
Sacramento address and phone number, but
as the organization became less active and
because he’s the president, they used the
South San Francisco address. Hull came to
work for the CMIB about a year ago and
Grenell said they changed the address to
assuage people’s misimpressions.
Brennan said the timing is suspicious and
wonders where the CMIB’s documents have
been stored. Brennan noted the district’s web-
site designer is the same as for the CMIB and
questions if the district is paying for it. She
added she’s concerned Grenell is working on
CMIB projects while on the district’s dime.
Grenell said he only spends approximate-
ly a half-hour a week on the CMIB and coun-
ty taxpayers are not paying for him to work
on other maritime projects.
Grenell and Hull said the CMIB is not
very active, the authority only meets a few
times a year and it hasn’t funded a project
since 2003.
Currently, there are nine members that are
all representatives of public harbors or
ports and the general manager or harbor-
masters are automatically on the authority’s
board, Grenell said.
To date, the district has never received any
financial benefit, although several years
ago a hotel sought help through the author-
ity to build at Oyster Point Marina, but the
deal fell through, Grenell said.
The last deal the authority conducted was
in 2003, when it helped secure funding for
the Santa Cruz Port District to construct
several multipurpose buildings, Hull said.
Hull is the only paid staff member and said
his costs are covered by residual funds from
previous projects. The most substantial of
those projects was when the CMIB helped
secure funding for a $110 million project to
assist the Port of San Diego redeveloping an
old power plant in the late 1990s, Hull said.
CMIB staff also includes a financial advi-
sor, Douglas Charchenko, and legal coun-
sel, Lawrence Mallon. Hull and Grenell said
they work pro bono.
Hull said he’s been working for the CMIB
for less than two years and has been attend-
ing seminars and giving presentations to
inform other maritime entities what the
organization has to offer.
“The infrastructure bank is kind of an
unknown and low key and it’s not meant to
be that way. But it’s pointed to a very spe-
cial business in the state. … It’s a very spe-
cial activity that a lot of people don’t cross
paths with,” Hull said. “It was one of the
first in the U.S. that was set up specifically
for maritime purposes.”
Brennan said she knew little about it as it
had never been brought up during board
meetings and, because the other agencies are
not required to pay dues, worries the Harbor
District is footing the bill.
“It seems that memberships of the bank-
ing authority should be contributing to
costs of the banking authority,” Brennan
said. “What it looks like is our district, and
I don’t know what others have been using
our district’s resources, our staff, our office
and trips that we paid our [general manager]
to go on to engage in banking authority
Grenell said with the Harbor District set-
ting out on its strategic business plan, the
CMIB and the authority could be an asset to
the district as it seeks funding opportuni-
ties to improve Pillar Point Harbor and
Oyster Point Marina.
Although there are other agencies like the
state Division of Boating and Waterways or
the Coastal Conservancy, infrastructure
improvements cannot always be funded on
federal or state grants alone.
“[The Harbor District board] joined
because they see this as a potential mecha-
nism for financing things and given the fact
that is has minimal impact on my work for
the district, … it’s Dave Hull who is busy,
there’s relatively little impact for poten-
tially a big return,” Grenell said. “And
there’s nothing suspicious about it. I think
that just reflects a lack of information more
than anything else.”
Brennan said even if the CMIB and the
authority are operating legally, a critical
issue is the board is unfamiliar with
Grenell’s doings. Brennan said she requested
the Board of Commissioners receive a report
on the CMIB, which will be discussed during
its next meeting beginning 6 p.m.
Wednesday, Aug. 6 at Sea Crest School,
Room 19, 901 Arnold Way, Half Moon Bay.

Airlines are taxed based partially on
how much time they spend at an airport.
The county doesn’t address the validi-
ty of the airlines’ claims but maintains
that is beyond the point because the
four-year statute of limitations has
expired on at least one of them. United
Airlines filed a claim for a $500,939.97
refund on 2009 taxes on Aug. 12, 2013.
Taxpayers like the airlines must also
first file an application with the coun-
ty’s Assessment Appeals Board, which
they did not, said Deputy County
Counsel Rebecca Archer.
“That is the main issue we’re contest-
ing. Obviously, we disagree on their
valuation but as far as we’re concerned
that isn’t the point,” Archer said.
The denial is really just a formality
because the airlines have also filed suit
in San Mateo County on the argument
that the allegedly wrong taxation was a
constitutional violation and therefore
needn’t first be considered by the
Assessment Appeals Board, Archer said.
If the court agrees with the county,
the matter is done. If instead the court
sides with the airlines, both sides will
continue forward with an evidentiary
San Mateo County isn’t the only
jurisdiction hit with lawsuits over
aircraft assessments. Forty-four sim-
ilar lawsuits have been filed across
the state with similar claims of depre-
ciation due to economic obsoles-
cence, Archer said.

Burlingame came in third, both cut-
ting back by 15 percent. More than
30,500 Foster City residents and
about 6,500 San Mateo residents
served through Foster City turned
down their faucets and reduced by
about 13.7 percent. The remainder of
San Mateo was 12 percent. Despite
having its driest year in history, Half
Moon Bay cut back by 12.5 percent.
Most of South San Francisco is
served by California Water Service
Company, or Cal Water, which
reported reduced usage by 10.5 per-
cent. Menlo Park residents have cut
back by about 10.3 percent and San
Bruno residents have reduced by
about 9 percent over the last year.
Redwood City, which is suffering its
second driest year on record, only
reduced water use by less than 6 per-
cent. Millbrae did not provide con-
servation data.
San Francisco residents and SFPUC
consumers had only conserved about
6.6 percent as of early July, accord-
ing to SFPUC officials. But residents
kicked up their conservation efforts,
doubling the amount they conserved
from 1.4 billion gallons in June to
3.1 billion gallons of water by the
end of July, SFPUC spokesman
Charles Sheehan said.
Summer use
Summertime savings will be key as
outdoor landscape irrigation
accounts for the most residential
water use, said Cal Water District
Manager Tony Carrasco. There’s only
so much one can do to conserve
indoors, short of not showering.
Although consumers have done a
good job conserving thus far, more
telling conservation data will arise
during the summer when people typi-
cally use more water, Carrasco said.
Cal Water, which services most of
San Mateo, San Carlos, South San
Francisco and several other cities,
has noticed those with large land-
scaped properties are able to cut back
the most, Carrasco said.
When Gov. Jerry Brown declared a
statewide drought in February, he
urged Californians to reduce con-
sumption by 20 percent. The San
Francisco Public Utilities
Commission, which wholesales
water to most county distributors,
seeks to save 8 billion gallons of
water by the year’s end and officials
said its 10 percent request could
become mandatory if consumers
don’t continue to conserve.
Record drought
Mark Strudley, a hydrologist with
the National Weather Service, said
based on the water year, which runs
from Oct. 1 through Sept. 31, the cur-
rent drought is up to par with the dire
conditions in 1976-77.
Based on data collected at the San
Francisco International Airport, this
water year the area only experienced
8.57 inches of rainfall while between
1976-77 there was only 8.35 inches
of rain, Strudley said.
Throughout the greater Bay Area,
data collected from Half Moon Bay,
Los Gatos, Santa Cruz and the
Oakland Museum indicate those areas
are experiencing their driest rain
year, which runs from July 1 through
June 30, on record. For Redwood
City, Woodside and San Jose this year
is second only to 1975-76, according
to the NWS.
Half Moon Bay has seen about 9.44
inches of rainfall this year, nearly
four inches less than in 1975-76,
according to the NWS.
Dickson said Coastside County
Water District serves just 5,700 resi-
dential customers and the foggy
coastal weather helps keep things
cool, making outdoor watering less
The drought is not only difficult for
consumers to manage, it also creates
a challenging situation for water dis-
tricts as 80 percent of their costs are
fixed. If consumers cut back more
than necessary, sellers must con-
tribute more and consequentially
water prices may eventually rise.
“We’re all sort of figuring this
drought thing out as we go and trying
to follow the [SFPUC’s] lead. … No
water utility wants to save 20 percent
when you only need to save 10 per-
cent because that imposes a lot of
additional costs on customers,”
Dickson said. “And that’s sort of the
struggle that all districts go through.
We’re a rare business that invests
heavily in getting people to use less
of our product.”

“I want to go back there (the bor-

an educational trip than service. It’s
very important for young people to

Still, although there is much discus-
sion about the legal and political
issues surrounding immigration, she
notes that she is not taking a posi-
tion on immigration, nor assisting
anyone to break laws or gain entry
into the United States. She said she
wants to help people in need and suf-

their situation. Americans hear about

Americans do not realize that they
have their own refugee crisis on the
southern border, she said.

id you know that 30 million Americans
suffer from back and neck pain every day?
Sciatica and herniated discs are often
misunderstood. They can cause pain and
numbness in the back, neck, legs, and feet. This
pain affects everything that you do, from work
to play, and ultimately your quality of life. We
are here to tell you that there is hope. We have
the technology and experience to help you fnd
relief from sciatica and back pain. At Bay Area
Disc Centers, we have helped thousands of pain
sufferers just like you. We offer only the most
advanced non-surgical treatments.
Are pain pills effective, long-term solutions
when dealing with Sciatica and Back Pain?
Until now, people have masked their pain by
frequently taking prescription pain pills. This
type of pain relief is temporary. Often these
treatments lead to even more health problems
or worse yet –addiction. Many people innocently
fall into abusing prescription pain pills while
initially using them to alleviate real, constant pain.
Is Surgery the Answer?
It is true that surgery may be the answer for
certain types of back injuries. When considering
your options, ask yourself this question…
If there is a solution to back pain that doesn’t
require surgery, is it worth exploring?
The Solution: TDC
TDC Therapy–Traction Decompression Combined
Therapy–is a proven treatment exclusive to Disc
Centers of America doctors for the relief of neck
and lower back pain. By utilizing traction that’s
isolated to the spinal segment involved, the
purpose is to create spinal decompression as a
result to specifc traction.
TDC Therapy offers a significant success rate
and patients have experienced dramatic pain
relief and healing. This non surgical solution
is changing the way doctors treat severe disc
conditions. TDC Therapy is a unique and
innovative approach for the relief of neck and
lower back syndromes, including:
º Herniated or buÌging discs
º De-generative disc disease
º Posterior facet syndrome
º SpinaÌ Stenosis
º Sciatica
TDC Therapy is non surgical and non invasive. It is
a gentle form of traction and disc decompression.
The treatment is not only safe, but also
comfortable and relaxing. The goal is symptomatic
relief and structural correction.
How Does TDC
Therapy Work?
TDC Therapy can isolate a specifc vertebra and
distract the vertebrae surrounding an injured
disc 5 to 7 millimeters. TDC Therapy treatment
isolates the specific vertebrae that are causing
the pain. The 25 to 30 minute treatment
provides static, intermittent, and cycling
forces on structures that may be causing
back pain. Negative pressure promotes the
diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrients into
the vertebral disc area, thereby re-hydrating
the degenerated disc. Repeated pressure
differential promotes retraction of a herniated
nucleus pulposus.
The TDC Therapy treatment works to reduce
pressure on the vertebral joints,promote
retraction of herniated discs, and promote self
healing and rehabilitation of damaged discs,
thereby relieving neck or lower back pain.
Why Bay Area Disc Centers
Dr. Thomas Ferrigno D.C. and his team have vast
experience in treating patients suffering from
severe disc disease. Dr. Ferrigno has performed
over 25,000 decompression treatments and
is currently only 1 of 2 doctors in the state of
California who is Nationally Certified in Spinal
Decompression Therapy. Dr. Ferrigno is also part
of the Disc Centers of America Team who are a
national group of doctors that have gone through
extensive training that follow the protocols set up
by The International Medical Advisory Board on
Spinal Decompression, and utilizes the protocols
set forward by Dr. Norman SheaÌy the Honorary
Chairman, former Harvard professor, and probabÌy
the most published doctor in the world on spinal
decompression therapy.
