Home prices along the Peninsula are
continuing to tick up, with an average
of more than $1.4 million countywide,
according to experts and the latest
data.
In the second quarter of 2014, the
median price for a single family home
in San Mateo County was $1.08 mil-
lion, while the average listing was
$1.46 million. The median is the mid-
dle point, whereas the average is the
result of adding the prices and dividing
the number of the homes. On the lower
end of things, South San Francisco’s
average home price was $709,737.
The average home price in
Hillsborough was $3.77 million. In
San Mateo and Burlingame, home
prices averaged $1.18 million and
$1.81 million, respectively, accord-
ing to data proved by the San Mateo
County Association of Realtors, or
SAMCAR, based on statistics com-
plied by MLS Listings.
And prices are still rising, said Steve
Blanton, SAMCAR’s chief executive
director.
“It’s flattened out a little bit since
last year,” he said. “It’s still really dif-

Crisis in Iraq worsens
By Diaa Hadid

IRBIL, Iraq — The U.S.
unleashed its first airstrikes in
northern Iraq against militants of
the Islamic State group Friday
amid a worsening humanitarian
crisis. The
extremists took
captive hundreds
of women from a
religious minori-
t y, according to an
Iraqi official,
while thousands
of other civilians
fled in fear.
Many of America’s allies backed
the U.S. intervention, pledging
urgent steps to assist the legions
of refugees and displaced people.
Those in jeopardy included thou-
sands of members of the Yazidi
religious minority whose plight
— trapped on a mountaintop by
the militants — prompted the U.S.
to airdrop crates of food and water

WASHINGTON — President
Barack Obama’s new military
strategy in Iraq amounts to trying
to contain — not destroy — the
Islamic militant group that now
controls much of the country’s
northern region. That leaves open
the questions of how deeply the
U.S. will be
drawn into the
sectarian con-
flict, and
w h e t h e r
airstrikes alone
can stop the
m i l i t a n t s ’
momentum.

The 37-year-old serial robber who shot a
San Mateo pet store clerk using a large sil-
ver gun that earned him the nickname
“chrome revolver bandit” was sentenced
Friday to 834 years to life in prison.
Last week, a judge refused to discount
Ricky Renee Sanders’ previous criminal
strikes so the man went
into Friday’s sentencing
hearing knowing he’d
receive up to a life term.

Helping young women feel more comfort-
able in their own bodies is the reason why
22-year-old South San Francisco native
Dana Toney is competing in her first beauty
pageant.
Toney, who went to South San Francisco
High School, will compete Aug. 16 in
Seattle for the first-ever Miss Plus USApag-
eant. Her current title, given in April, is
Miss Golden State Plus USA. Toney, a final-
ist in the competition, was hesitant do be
involved in a pageant, but ultimately decid-
ed to give it a shot after she realized it was-
n’t your typical beauty pageant.
“We were chosen based off of a reference
letter from the community,” she said. “It
wasn’t a bunch of pretty girls parading
around stage in bikinis.”
She found out about the pageant from her
aunt, who tagged her in a Facebook post.
Toney deleted the post at first because she
didn’t want to get involved in the competi-
tion, but ultimately did some research and
decided it was a great fit for her. Since then,
she walked in her first fashion show two
weeks ago in San Francisco.
The competition, for women size 10 and
above, will include an evening gown and fit-
ness wear contests, along with interview
portion. The mission of Miss Plus USA,
broken into a teen section of ages 14-19 and
women ages 20-30, is to provide a platform
and opportunity for the average size woman
through tasteful competition, requiring a
healthy lifestyle, class, eloquence and vol-
unteerism. Toney will be competing in a
pool of about 20 women. Toney is most
nervous to be up on stage.
“It’s my first time on a real big stage,” she
said. “I’ve done public speaking, but not
huge like this.”
Stepping outside of her comfort zone is
worth it though to help others, she said.
“I’m not just doing this for myself, but for
the Bay Area, for all the curvy ladies I know
that we’re going to break the beauty stan-
dards,” said Toney.
It’s also special to Toney that she is part
of the inaugural Miss Plus USApageant.
“I’m a history maker,” said Toney, who is
a pastry chef by trade, but works at First
Bank in San Mateo. “I’m very glad to be
part of the first one.”
A member of the Girls Scouts and Ballet
Folklorico Alma de Mexico of South City
for 15 years, Toney’s platform in the com-
petition is self-esteem and anti-bullying. In
particular, she is focusing on helping
young girls learn to love themselves in the
now, not when they lose 5 pounds.
“I’ve always been a plus size girl and the
biggest girl in my class,” she said. “You
don’t have to be a size 2 to consider yourself
beautiful.”
When she was in high school, the bully-
ing started to wear her down and she decided
it was better just to accept herself.
She’s not sure about future pageants
because of the high financial costs of partic-
ipating. There’s also the sheer fact that
there aren’t too many plus size pageants to
enter, she said.
“It’s a great opportunity,” she said.
“There aren’t that many plus size pageants.
I would love to see more plus size pageants.
I’d be there in a heartbeat — that’s why I felt
like I had to do this; there’s not that many. ”
During her six-day trip, there will be
workshops, a fitness boot camp, touring
around Seattle, a photo shoot, a fashion
show and a soiree to fight against human
trafficking before the final event to crown
queens Saturday, Aug. 16 at Neptune Theater.

Two arrested for theft at private party
A man and woman were arrested Friday in connection
with a theft the male committed while working at a private
party in Belmont earlier in the month,
according to police.
Belmont police detectives arrested
Robert Spiva, 31, and Paige Boswell,
22, both of East Palo Alto, on charges
relating to a theft that occurred at a pri-
vate party earlier in the month, in
Belmont.
Spiva had been hired to work at party
and, after the party, the resident discov-
ered her wallet and checkbook had been
stolen. Subsequent investigation lead
to Spiva and Boswell, after the victim’s
credit card was used at a gas station in
Palo Alto, according to police.
Both suspects were arrested without
incident at their residence and booked
into the San Mateo County Jail in
Redwood City. Spiva was charged with
possession of stolen property, posses-
sion of narcotic paraphernalia and vio-
lation of probation. Boswell was charged with posses-
sion of stolen property, identity theft and violation of
probation, according to police.
Detectives found other possible stolen items in the sus-
pects’ residence and are working to confirm additional
victims, according to police.
Both had pleaded no contest to three felonies in April
2013 for using a stolen credit card to book a room at the
Ritz-Carlton hotel in Half Moon Bay and were later found
in possession of identifying information for dozens of
people.
They took plea deals on counts of possessing stolen
property, identity theft and possession of methampheta-
mine. They were immediately sentenced, Boswell to a
year in jail which was modifiable to residential treatment
and Spiva to 18 months incarceration.
Police looking for man who followed teen
South San Francisco police are on the lookout for a man
alleged to have been following a 16-year-old girl walking
on the 200 block of B Street just after noon Thursday.
At approximately 12:03 p.m., the police department
received a call from the girl stating she was being fol-
lowed by a man in a silver four-door vehicle. He was
described as Hispanic or Asian, and in his 30s, according
to police.
Police said she reported he tried to lure her to his car and
asked if he had a boyfriend. She called from a nearby resi-
dence, according to police.
While police responded, she was walked over to the
Centennial Way foot path by the resident, said she was
OK, then left and walked home, according to police.
Police said they searched the area for both the girl and
suspect but neither could be located.
Anyone with any information about this crime is asked
to call the police at 877-8900 or the anonymous tip line
at 952-2244.

Alfonso Suarez-Prendes, 50,

LOS ANGELES — Sending heavier
vehicles and, eventually, humans to
Mars requires first testing new tech-
nologies to see if they actually work.
But it’s infeasible to conduct experi-
ments on the red planet, so to mimic
Mars’ low-density atmosphere, NASA
sent a saucer-like test vehicle high
above the Earth.
NASA engineers announced Friday
that the June mission’s main objective
was met: The vehicle, called the Low
Density Supersonic Decelerator, flew
to 190,000 feet at more than four times
the speed of sound and simulated
Martian landing conditions.
“The vehicle did an amazing job of
getting to the right speed and alti-
tude,” said Ian Clark, principal inves-
tigator at NASA’s Jet Propulsion
Laboratory.
The experimental flight, which cost
about $150 million and was conducted
from the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Missile
Range Facility on Kauai, Hawaii, was
intended as a dry run for two more tests
scheduled for next year.
One of the technologies NASAengi-
neers tested is an inflatable, doughnut-
shaped ring around the edge of the
saucer-like vehicle that deploys like a
puffer fish in one-third of a second,
slowing the vehicle. In the test run,
the saucer went from traveling at Mach
4.3 — more than four times the speed
of sound — to a breezy Mach 2, mak-
ing the inflatable device a success,
NASAengineers said.
The second technology is a 100-
foot-wide parachute, which virtually
disintegrated the moment it was
released. In the months ahead, NASA
will try to figure out how to properly
deploy the parachute, Clark said.
“The idea of taking 200 pounds of
Kevlar and nylon and deploying it at
2,500 mph, 200 pounds that inflated
would be the size of a small warehouse,
is certainly a challenging endeavor.
There’s a lot of physics with this prob-
lem that we’re now gaining new
insights into that we’ve never had
before,” Clark said. “And we’re going
to take all of that knowledge, and feed
it toward our flights next year. ”

HONOLULU — As the first tropical storm
to hit Hawaii in 22 years passed by the
islands, some coffee farmers on the Big
Island navigated flooded roads to assess
damage to their crops Friday while residents
and tourists wandered the beaches of Oahu
and surfers took to the waves as wind and
rain let up.
The first storm in a one-two punch bound
for Hawaii clamored ashore overnight
Friday as a weakened tropical storm. Asec-
ond system behind it also weakened and was
on track to pass well north of the islands
early Sunday.
Tropical Storm Iselle knocked out power,
caused flooding and downed trees when it
crossed onto the Big Island in a rural and
sparsely populated region. There have been
no reports of major injuries, Gov. Neil
Abercrombie said Friday.
Those staying in shelters were told to
return home, while crews and some resi-
dents used chain saws to clear trees from
roads.
Heavy rains and wind from the storm’s
outer bands hit Maui and Oahu on Friday
morning but eased later in the day as Iselle
swirled farther out to sea.
On Oahu’s south shore, near Honolulu,
the cloudy skies started to give way to
patches of blue as tourists and residents
ventured out to see the surf.
“We’ve never seen the water crash into the
rocks the way they are. It’s just beautiful,”
said Army Sgt. Steven Reyes, who drove to
the coast with his mother after his home on
a central Oahu Army base lost power.
Honolulu’s lifeguard division said about a
dozen surfers were riding waves Friday at a
spot nicknamed “Suicides,” near the popu-
lar Diamond Head crater. Lifeguards on Oahu
planned only to respond to emergency
calls, avoiding regular patrols.
The National Weather Service canceled
the tropical storm warning for the Big
Island, Oahu and Maui on Friday afternoon,
but kept it in effect for Kauai.
Even then, the National Park Service said
it would keep its popular memorial sites at
Pearl Harbor in Oahu closed through
Saturday as staff keeps an eye on Hurricane
Julio.
The state Department of Health warned
the public to stay out of floodwaters and
storm water runoff across Hawaii because
they are known to attract sharks as they
wash possible dead animals into the ocean.
Back on the Big Island, coffee farmers on
the southeastern side tried to get around fall-
en trees on flooded roads to determine any
crop damage, said Randy Stevens, general
manager of Kau Coffee Mill.
The heavy rain and flooding seen in the
southeastern Kau district was vastly differ-
ent from the relatively drier Kona region on
the Big Island’s western side, where much
more coffee is grown, and the storm had lit-
tle impact.
“We’re all buttoned up, but nothing hap-
pened,” said Bruce Corker, a Kona coffee
farmer.
Meanwhile, Hurricane Julio, about 750
miles east of the Big Island, was a Category
2 storm and packed maximum sustained
winds of about 105 mph. National Weather
Service officials predict it will continue to
weaken on a path that should take it about
200 miles north of the island chain starting
sometime Sunday morning.

WASHINGTON — This week’s death of
former White House press secretary James
Brady, who survived a gunshot wound to the
head in a 1981 assassination attempt on
President Ronald Reagan, has been ruled a
homicide, District of Columbia police said
Friday.
Federal prosecutors said only that they
are reviewing the ruling. But a law professor
and an attorney for John Hinckley Jr., who
was found not guilty by reason of insanity
in the shooting, said bringing new charges
against the 59-year-old in Brady’s death
seemed unlikely.
“I think it (the medical examiner’s rul-
ing) will mean nothing,” long-time
Hinckley attorney Barry
Levine told the
Associated Press. “No
prosecutors will bring
such a case. The notion
that this could be a suc-
cessful prosecution is
far-fetched. There is no
legal basis to pursue
this.”
Brady lived through
hours of delicate surgery and further opera-
tions over the past 33 years, but never
regained normal use of his limbs and was
often in a wheelchair.
An autopsy revealed the cause of death to
be a gunshot wound and its health conse-
quences, and the manner of death was ruled a
homicide, according to a news release
Friday from District police spokeswoman
Gwendolyn Crump. Nancy Bull, district
administrator for the Virginia medical
examiner’s office, which made the ruling,
declined to disclose any more results of the
autopsy and referred inquiries to District
police.
Besides partial paralysis from brain dam-
age, Brady suffered short-term memory
impairment, slurred speech and constant
pain. His family said he died Monday at age
73 at his Virginia home from a series of
health issues.
William Miller, a spokesman for the U.S.
attorney’s office in Washington, said the
office “is reviewing the ruling on the death
of Mr. Brady and has no further comment at
this time.” District police and the FBI are
also reviewing the case.
Tung Yin, a professor of law at Lewis &
Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon, said
Friday that it’s rare that the act that could be
considered the cause of a murder occurred so
long ago.
“It seems a little bit unprecedented,” Yi n
said of the Virginia medical examiner’s rul-
ing. He said such cases more likely involve
a person in a coma who dies some time later.
He said bringing such a case could cause
problems for prosecutors, because Hinckley
Jr. was found was found not guilty by reason
of insanity.
“Ajury has already concluded on the same
incident that he (Hinckley Jr.) was not
guilty. Nothing today changes that,” Yi n
said, even if prosecutors say Hinckley is no
longer insane. “That doesn’t change what
he was 33 years ago.”

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LONDON — The World Health
Organization urged nations world-
wide to donate money and
resources to stop the spread of
Ebola as it declared the outbreak in
West Africa to be an international
public health emergency.
The latest Ebola outbreak is the
largest and longest ever recorded
for the disease, which has a death
rate of about 50 percent and has so
far killed at least 961 people,
according to the U.N. health
agency. It emerged in Guinea in
March and has since spread to
Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria.
“Countries affected to date sim-
ply do not have the capacity to
manage an outbreak of this size
and complexity on their own,”
WHO chief Dr. Margaret Chan told
a news conference Friday in
Geneva. “I urge the international
community to provide this sup-
port on the most urgent basis pos-
sible.”
She added that the world’s “col-
lective health security” depends
on curbing the spread of the killer
virus in West Africa, even as she
acknowledged that many countries
would probably not have any
Ebola cases.
The Nigerian government
declared containing the Ebola
virus in Africa’s most populous
country a national emergency
Friday, after two Ebola patients
died and the health ministry said
seven other cases were confirmed.
President Goodluck Jonathan
approved spending $11.7 million
to fight the disease and urged
schools to extend a current holi-
day to give experts more time to
assess the Ebola threat.
Since Ebola was first identified
in 1976, there have been more
than 20 outbreaks in central and
eastern Africa; this is the first to
affect West Africa. The virus caus-
es symptoms including fever,
vomiting, muscle pain and bleed-
ing. It is spread by direct contact
with bodily fluids like blood,
sweat, urine, saliva and diarrhea.
The U.N. agency convened an
expert committee this week to
assess the severity of the Ebola
epidemic. WHO declared similar
emergencies for the swine flu pan-
demic in 2009 and for polio in
May.
The impact of WHO’s declara-
tion Friday is unclear; its similar
declaration about polio doesn’t
yet seem to have slowed the spread
of the paralytic virus.
“Statements won’t save lives,”
said Dr. Bart Janssens, director of
operations for the Doctors
Without Borders charity group.
“For weeks, (we) have been repeat-
ing that a massive medical, epi-
demiological and public health
response is desperately needed. ...
Lives are being lost because the
response is too slow. ”
“I don’t know what the advan-
tage is of declaring an internation-
al emergency,” added Dr. David
Heymann, who directed WHO’s
response to the SARS outbreak
and is now a professor at the
London School of Hygiene and
Tropical Medicine. “This could
bring in more foreign aid but we
don’t know that yet.”

WASHINGTON — U.S. workers
were more productive in the
April-June quarter and labor costs
rose slightly, a sharp turnaround
from grim first-quarter figures.
The Labor Department said
Friday that that productivity
increased 2.5 percent at a season-
ally adjusted annual rate, after
plummeting 4.5 percent in the
first quarter. That was the steepest
drop in 31 years, and reflected a
sharp 2.1 percent contraction in
the economy. Economists blamed
most of that shrinkage on tempo-
rary factors, such as harsh weath-
er and a cutback in stockpiling by
businesses.
Productivity measures output
per hour of work. Greater produc-
tivity increases living standards
because it enables companies to
pay their workers more without
having to increase prices, which
can boost inflation.
Labor costs rose just 0.6 per-
cent, after surging 11.8 percent
in the first quarter. But labor
costs shrank in the second half of
last year and in the past 12
months have increased just 1.9
percent. That is below the long-
run average of 2.8 percent and
suggests that wages and salaries
aren’t rising fast enough to spur
inflation.
The Federal Reserve keeps
close watch on productivity and
labor costs for any signs that
inflation may be accelerating.
Despite the first quarter
increase, labor cost gains have
been tame throughout most of the
recovery. Wages for most workers
have barely kept up with infla-
tion since the recession ended.
In the past 12 months, produc-
tivity has increased 1.2 percent,
below the long-run average of 2.2
percent.
Productivity growth has been
weak in the five years since the
recession ended. That has raised
concerns among some analysts
that the U.S. economy may not
be able to grow as quickly as it
has in the past.

Rise of parking
costs in Redwood City
Editor,
I have been working in downtown
Redwood City for over two years and
I am shocked and appalled by the rise
of parking costs. I work for minimum
wage and I was paying on average
$1.25-1.50 to park at the Marshall
Street garage, but today, I had to pay
$6.50. That is far and beyond a rea-
sonable amount for someone to pay
coming to work or visit Redwood
City. With all the construction going
on around downtown Redwood City,
parking was already difficult and lim-
ited and now we are being gouged for
it as well. I will definitely have to
pay closer attention when the next
local election takes place.

Caltrain needs
more bike capacity
Editor,
Caltrain has done a tremendous job
of transforming itself into the top
bicycle-accessible, commuter rail
system in the nation, but it still has-
n’t done enough to meet the growing
demand. Since 2010, bicycle board-
ings grew a whopping 120 percent,
whereas walk-on boardings increased
less than 50 percent. Bicycle board-
ings would have been even higher, if
they hadn’t been capped by limited
bike capacity.
Paid customers with bicycles are
routinely denied service, but walk-on
customers are all allowed to board.
Yet Caltrain is apparently planning
to add more seating capacity, but not
more bike capacity.
It’s unfair that one type of cus-
tomer gets left behind on the plat-
form while everyone else is served.
This imbalance is especially trou-
bling, because passengers with bicy-
cles don’t use expensive parking
spaces or occupy seats on publicly
subsidized shuttles. Caltrain staff
assures us they are working on solu-
tions for customers with bicycles and
has advised that commute-hour
cyclists may want to adjust their
schedules to ride trains with adequate
bike capacity. Perhaps Caltrain
should issue a tardy pass to employ-
ers: “Sorry I was late. Caltrain told
me to change my work schedule.”

Justification for
bikes on electrified
Peninsula corridor trains
Editor,
I’m a Caltrain commuter who
bikes to and from the Hillsdale and
South San Francisco stations. The
Bay Area will definitely continue to
benefit from reduced congestion and
pollution if Caltrain continues bike
accommodation on electrified trains.
Biking is by far the most conven-
ient and greenest way of getting to
the station for the many of us who
live and/or work more than half a
mile away from a station, as well as
being cheaper in the face of rising
fuel prices.
If I were unable to bring my bike
onboard, I’d have to resort to driv-
ing to work by myself. This would
drastically decrease my quality of
life, as I’d not only waste time driv-
ing, but also wouldn’t benefit from
my current cycling exercise, ability
to catch up on work on the train and
the ease of transporting my 2-year-
old toddler; she loves riding on the
back of my bike but hates being
strapped in the car seat.
Additionally, it would cause gallons
of gas wasted unnecessarily, an
increase in traffic congestion lead-
ing to more accidents, road rage and
overly tired drivers, not to mention
the indirect effect of keeping the
United States at war over oil.

Deadly Millbrae streets
Editor,
In 2006, 17-year-old Emily Liou
was struck by a Toyota while cross-
ing El Camino Real in a crosswalk
near Ludeman Lane. She suffered
severe brain trauma and is in a coma
to this day.
In 2012, Millbrae resident Jean
Escobar and her 13-year-old son,
Ruben, were hit by a driver on the
morning of Oct. 13 while crossing
El Camino Real at the crosswalk at
Santa Helena Avenue. The car
slammed into Jean Escobar’s leg and
lifted her son onto the hood, injur-
ing his arm. Amonth later, a 17-
year-old girl was walking at the
same crosswalk when a car hit her.
She sustained major injuries, accord-
ing to the San Mateo County sheriff.
Kara McGee and Justin McGee were
also hit in the same year on El
Camino Real.
This year, an incident claimed the
life of Sinil Park, 81, of San
Francisco. He was crossing El
Camino Real at Millwood Drive that
evening and was struck and killed by
a black Nissan SUV heading north.
Though the incident did not occur
in Millbrae, nearby local San Bruno
resident Bernabe Lacatwan also
recently passed after being struck by
a car on El Camino.
Frankly, how many people have to
die in the Millbrae streets before
something is done?

Arming Israel
Editior,
Gladwyn d’Souza’s Aug. 2 Daily
Journal letter “Stop Arming Israel,”
said we should stop supplying
weaponry to Israel. It’s a good idea.
This would save countless
Palestinian lives. After all, they
never did anything wrong, except
elect Hamas to run their govern-
ment.
Of course, the next problem would
be the saving of countless Israeli
lives. As you know, the Palestinians
want only one thing.
But another possibile solution
would be to ask the Palestinians to
surrender their 10,000 rockets to
Israel or the U.N. I mean, the
Palestinians are reasonable people,
right?
The bottom line here is that the
Israelis are peaceful when the
Palestinians stop terrorizing them.

A Republican idol
Editor,
Not long ago, Russian President
Vladimir Putin was hailed by Fox
News pundits and several more or
less prominent Republicans like for-
mer New York mayor Rudy Giuliani,
as a true leader, one who doesn’t
hesitate, one who dares to make a
decision and who executes without
hesitation — in stark contrast to
President Obama, who was criticized
as someone who has to think about
everything before he acts, weigh
consequences, talk to others and
evaluate options.
Putin has now demonstrated that
he is a leader of Republican ilk —
more like George W. Bush.

Issues with immigrant
investor program EB-5
By Doug Radtke
I
n rapidly growing numbers, the immigrant investor
program, or as it is more commonly referred to as “EB-
5” visa is being used to secure green cards for perma-
nent residence in the United States.
Essentially, in return for an investment of either
$500,000 or $1 million — an individual and his family are
granted permanent residence in the United States.
Up until the end of last year, the United
States Citizenship and Immigration
Services never came close to the 10,000
EB-5 visa limits. In fiscal year 2013,
8,564 EB-5 visas were issued. During fis-
cal year 2012, 7,641 visas were issued.
The majority of the applicants of EB-5
visas were issued to Chinese nationals
during these surges in activity. China
accounts for more than 80 percent of all
EB-5 investors overall.
Just to put things in perspective: During fiscal year 2003
— only a total of 65 EB-5 visas were issued.
EB-5 is a government sponsored “quid pro quo” method of
buying your way into citizenship. On the surface, the pro-
gram appears like a win-win for both America’s unemployed
and rich foreigners.
The program, however, has demonstrated a lack of long-
term jobs creation and is plagued with corruption and scan-
dals. The EB-5 program was run so poorly in the 1990s that
it was effectively shut down from 1998 to 2003. Canada has
entirely halted their similar foreign investment visa pro-
gram entirely since February this year.
An example that should hit close to home is the case of
Jianwei Lei and two other wealthy Chinese businessmen
who all wired $1 million each to a California firm that had
promised to build a fine Chinese restaurant in San Bruno.
The developer faked a heart attack in a karaoke bar and his
associate concocted a story about his death, according to a
Los Angeles Times article dated April 23, 2013, by Don Lee
and Frank Shyong.
Take also the bizarre case of the El Monte regional “transit
village” which had its designation as an EB-5 project
revoked due to fraud, embezzling and a series of other bizarre
circumstances resulting from this program. The organization
barred from EB-5 visa application is still trying to acquire
funds in mainland China and actively use the El Monte city
seal in its documents and marketing materials, according to a
Bloomberg article dated May 23, 2012, by Dune Lawrence.
There is little actual regulation of how promoters market
visas to would-be immigrants and investors. In many cases,
developers have misrepresented their projects and misspent
funds collected.
I have written before about San Mateo County mayors’
junket to China sponsored by “nonprofit” China Silicon
Valley Opportunities, which I believe is part of this larger
issue of pandering to rich foreign investors.
Mayor Wayne Lee, in my hometown of Millbrae, has been
actively lobbying for the establishment of a “trade center”
with China. This “trade center” idea may actually end up being
a USCIS approved regional EB-5 visa investment center.
Frankly, the individuals who stand to benefit the most
from actively courting investors abroad are first and fore-
most the local politicians who control the primary approval
barriers of entry for real estate projects.
We’ve seen firsthand the Millbrae Planning Commission
approve Tai Wu restaurant despite having a full disclosure of
the project’s parking shortcomings since 2011. Where are
the checks and balances?
We have all seen a large increase in home and rent prices
in San Mateo County skyrocket in part because of the tech-
nology industry and a significant portion due to speculative
foreign real estate investment encouraged by programs such
as EB-5. Our economy in San Mateo County is completely
artificial, a plutocracy of the technology class and rich for-
eign investors. Where do the locals who grew up here fit in
to the equation?
My own mother came to this country on refugee status
from China without a dime in her pocket to escape Maoism.
She attended the University of California at Berkeley and
San Francisco State University while working. She later
became an accounting controller and accomplished the
“American dream” — by being granted an opportunity by
working hard.
In modern America, people like my mother would never be
given a visa to come here because she didn’t have the requi-
site half a million dollars and necessary “connections.”

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK — Fear is creeping into
stock and bonds markets around the
world against a backdrop of escalating
global turmoil.
Prices in Europe and Asia slumped
Friday on news of U.S. fighter jets
dropping bombs in Iraq, the end of a
three-day cease-fire in Gaza and esca-
lating tensions in Ukraine. The drops
capped broad losses for the week,
including a 5 percent drop in Japan’s
major stock index and declines in
Europe.
In recent days, money has been flow-
ing from around the world into U.S.
Treasurys, the perennial safe haven for
spooked investors.
The question facing investors now,
according to Wells Capital’s chief
strategist, Jim Paulsen: “Are geopolit-
ical risks really going to have an eco-
nomic impact?”
Until recently most investors appar-
ently didn’t think so. Before late July,
prices in major indexes had been ris-
ing in the face of widening conflicts
around the world. Some experts warned
that markets had grown dangerously
complacent.
But then the West imposed increas-
ingly crushing sanctions on Russia for
supporting rebels in Ukraine, Israel’s
bloody war in Gaza dragged on and
Sunni extremists made advances in
northern Iraq.
Prices have been falling generally in
the past month, even in the resilient
U.S. stock market. On Friday,
investors appeared to be snapping up
share prices that had been beaten down
in recent days. The Dow Jones indus-
trial average was up 134 points, or 0.8
percent, to 16,502 as of 3:07 p.m.
Eastern time. Having drifted down in
recent weeks, the blue chip index is
still off nearly 4 percent from a record
high on July 16.
As investors have sought safety,
U.S. government bond prices have
risen and yields, which move in the
opposite direction, have plummeted.
The yield on German government
notes maturing in 10 years hit its low-
est level ever Friday. Notes of the same
maturity sold by the U.S. and the
United Kingdom are yielding the least
in about a year.
Another sign of fear, the VIX, a
gauge of expectation of future U.S.
stock volatility, has climbed nearly 50
percent since early July.
In the U.S. on Friday, the Standard &
Poor’s 500 index rose 17 points, or
0.9 percent, to 1,926. The Nasdaq
composite rose 31 points, or 0.7 per-
cent, to 4,365.
In Europe, Germany’s DAX fell 0.3
percent while the FTSE 100 index of
British shares dropped 0.5 percent.
Both indexes are down about 2 percent
for the week, capping three weeks of
losses.
Global turmoil weighs on stocks but U.S. up
Stocks that moved substantially or traded heavily Friday on the
New York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq Stock Market:

GM issues six more recalls
covering 312,000 vehicles
By Elliot Spagat
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN DIEGO — California con-
sumers rank among the nation’s
biggest spenders on housing and the
lowest spenders on energy, according
to new government data.
Per-capita spending on housing and
utilities totaled $8,650 in 2012,
which is sixth-highest in the country
and well above the national average of
$6,415. California was surpassed
only by the District of Columbia at
$11,985, Hawaii at $10,002,
Connecticut at $9,524, Maryland at
$9,000 and New Jersey at $8,861.
That’s no surprise in a state with
many of the most expensive housing
markets. California occupied four of
the top five slots in a National
Association of Realtors survey of sin-
gle-family home sale prices in the first
three months of this year, led by San
Jose and San Francisco, and followed
by Anaheim-Santa Ana and San Diego.
On the flip side, a state known for
its freeway culture ranked fourth-to-
last in spending on gasoline and other
energy goods in 2012. Per-capita
spending was $1,039 in 2012, ahead
of Florida at $1,020, New York at
$919 and Hawaii at $882. The nation-
al average was $1,328.
The warm climate that draws many
to California drives up housing prices
but also keeps a lid other pocketbook
items, said Jerry Nickelsburg, eco-
nomics professor at the UCLA
Anderson School of Management.
“You spend more on housing but
less on clothing, heating and even
less on air conditioning,”
Nickelsburg said. “There are a few
things that help balance the equa-
tion.”
The figures emerged from an annual
report the U.S. Commerce Department
released Thursday. For the first time, it
reveals consumer spending on a state-
by-state basis from 1997 through
2012.
The numbers point to substantial
shifts in the economy since the Great
Recession ended. The recession,
which began in December 2007, offi-
cially ended in June 2009.
California spends big on housing, little on energy
Judge rejects $324.5M
settlement of tech wage case
SAN FRANCISCO — Afederal judge rejected as too low
a $324.5 million settlement of a class-action lawsuit
alleging Google and Apple conspired with several other
technology companies to block their top workers from
getting better job offers.
The Friday ruling by U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh con-
cludes the more than 60,000 high-tech workers represent-
ed in the 3-year-old lawsuit deserve to be paid more money,
based on the evidence indicating their earning power was
undermined by the collusion among their employers.
Koh estimated that the workers should receive at least
$380 million. Attorneys representing the workers origi-
nally were seeking $3 billion damages before settling for
about 10 percent of that amount in a deal reached in April.
If $3 billion in damages had been awarded in a trial, it could
have been tripled to $9 billion under U.S. antitrust law.
The settlement would have been paid by Apple, Google
Inc., Intel Corp. and Adobe Systems Inc. The suit alleged
they and three other companies — Intuit Inc., Pixar
Animation and Lucasfilm — secretly agreed not to recruit
each other’s workers during various junctures from 2005
through 2009.
Koh’s ruling prolongs a case that paints a sordid picture
of the late Steve Jobs and other prominent Silicon Valley
executives.
Apple, Google and Intel declined to comment on Koh’s
ruling. Adobe didn’t immediately respond to requests for
comment.
Argentina lawsuit against
U.S. in world court unlikely
WASHINGTON — An attempt by Argentina to sue the
U.S. in the world court appears unlikely to get off the
ground.
Argentina had sought to bring the case to the
International Court of Justice in the Hague after a series of
rulings in U.S. courts forced the South American country
into a default on its sovereign debt.
The U.S. would have to agree to grant the international
court jurisdiction for the case to proceed. A State
Department spokeswoman signaled Friday that the U.S.
would not do so.
The spokeswoman said the world court is “not an appro-
priate venue” for the matter and that Argentina should
negotiate with its creditors. The spokeswoman asked to
not be identified in line with department policy.
Adispute with U.S. based creditors triggered the July 30
default.

DETROIT — General Motors is issu-
ing six more recalls totaling more
than 312,000 vehicles as the compa-
ny cleans up past safety issues.
The recalls in North America pushed
GM’s total for the year to 66, covering
just over 29 million cars and trucks.
That beats the company’s old full-year
record and has pushed this total num-
ber for the industry this year to more
than 40 million, also an annual
record.
The largest of Friday’s recalls covers
215,243 Saturn Vue SUVs from the
2002 through 2004 model years. GM
says keys can be removed when igni-
tions are not in the “off” position. The
problem is linked to two crashes and
one injury.
GM is conducting a companywide
safety review following a bungled
recall of 2.6 million small cars with
faulty ignition switches. GM has
admitted knowing about the defective
switches for at least a decade, yet it
didn’t recall the cars until February.
In the recalls announced Friday, GM
has told dealers to stop selling some
of the vehicles until repairs are made.
Including the Vue recall, GM has
called back more than 17.5 million
vehicles for ignition switch prob-
lems. In many cases the switches can
be knocked from the “run” position to
“accessory,” shutting off the engine
and disabling the power steering,
power brakes and air bags.
The National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, the U.S. govern-
ment’s road safety agency, is investi-
gating ignition switches across the
auto industry to make sure they can’t
be inadvertently moved from the run
position.
Dealers will inspect the Vue igni-
tions and replace the cylinder if needed
at no cost to customers.
• 72,826 Cadillac ATS, Chevrolet Trax in Canada and
Buick Encore cars and SUVs from the 2013 model year.
In some of the vehicles,the front lap belts may not lock
properly, allowing people to move in a crash. Dealers
will replace the belt pretensioners.GM doesn’t know of
any crashes, but it has told dealers not to sell the
vehicles until repairs are done.
• 15,386 Chevrolet Impalas from 2014 and 2015. On
some LT and LTZ models, the front console storage
door may not latch properly in a rear crash.Dealers will
replace the latch. The company knows of no crashes
or injuries,but it’s orderingdealers toholdthecars until
repairs can be made.
• 3,624 Cadillac ATS sedans from 2013 and 2014 to fix
a problem with front lighting. These cars were all
exported from the U.S.
• 3,110 Chevrolet Spark minicars from 2014. Lower
control arm bolts in the suspensions may not be
tightened to specifications. Owners have been told to
havetheir carstransportedtodealershipsfor inspection
and tightening. No crashes reported.
• 2,091 Chevrolet Aveo subcompacts from 2009 and
2010, 2009 Pontiac G3 subcompacts and the 2007
Chevrolet Optra in Canada. A brake fluid issue could
lead to longer brake pedal travel and reduced brake
performance. GM knows of no crashes or injuries.

JUNEAU, Alaska — Police have ended a
criminal investigation into a hazing ritual
involving Juneau high school athletes and a
wooden paddle that might have crossed the
line into assault after no witnesses were
willing to come forward.
“We know who was there, we know who
did the paddling, we know who got paddled,”
Police Chief Bryce Johnson told the Juneau
Empire. “We’re pretty comfortable we know
the majority of what happened, but we don’t
have any of the people who got paddled will-
ing to be a victim and step forward and say,
‘I’m willing to testify.”’
Parents have complained their high
school-age children who are athletes were
kidnapped and beaten with paddles on May
31.
Johnson said the investigation showed
the culprits came from all three high schools
in Juneau, not just one as some parents pre-
viously believed.
He said possibly the most troubling part
of the investigation was that this hazing has
been going on for at least a decade, maybe
longer.
“There’s a lengthy culture and tradition of
this genre of activity going on,” he said.
“You have a cycle (where) the kids that were
paddled four years ago are the ones doing it
four years later. ”
Johnson said he believes this crosses the
line into bullying and criminal behavior and
must stop. He said their investigation was
forwarded to the city attorney’s office, which
will send it to the school district. School
officials could impose sanctions it deems
necessary.
“If we had a witness that would come for-
ward and say, ‘This happened to me at this
time and I would like to press charges,’ then
we think we could put together a case and do
that, but we don’t have that,” he said.
He said witnesses weren’t willing to come
forward for a number of reasons, including
fear of retaliation, being ostracized by their
teammates and not wishing to rat out
friends.
Another reason may be that the athletes
feel this is their rite of passage.
“Victims make decisions for their individ-
ual lives, and we gave them the opportunity
to come forward, and at the end of the day,
it’s their choice whether they want to or
not,” he said. “I can understand their reasons
for not doing it and we’ll respect them.”

MINNEAPOLIS — Matt Cassel was sharp
from the start, giving Teddy Bridgewater a
model touchdown drive to watch.
That’s the early snapshot of Minnesota’s
starting quarterback competition.
Cassel led a couple of crisp scoring
marches, and the Vikings broke in their tem-
porary new home stadium for the next two
years by beating the Oakland Raiders 10-6
in the exhibition opener on Friday night.
Bridgewater relieved Cassel at quarterback
after two series, and the rookie’s first name
was rhythmically chanted during his first
two snaps by a crowd eager to see the first-
round draft pick in action. Playing into the
third quarter, Bridgewater’s debut was mixed
at best: 6 for 13 for 49 yards, two sacks and
one fumble the Vikings recovered.
Matt Schaub’s first time in silver and
black wasn’t exactly smooth, either. The
latest attempt by the Raiders to stop the
quarterback carousel from spinning, Schaub
finished 3 for 7 for 21 yards.
Schaub played three series, all three-and-
outs.
Derek Carr, the second-round draft pick
from Fresno State, took over in the second
quarter and was only slightly more produc-
tive with and against the backups. Carr went
10 for 16 for 74 yards, but his high throw on
the run to Jamize Olawale slipped through
the fullback’s hands and was intercepted by
Kurt Coleman.
Darren McFadden had a 23-yard run, the
only highlight by a Raiders starter. Third-
string quarterback Matt McGloin had a late
10-yard touchdown scramble.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — On a soggy day at
Valhalla, Rory McIlroy put himself in a
familiar position — at the top of the leader-
board in the PGAChampionship.
For Tiger Woods, this
also is becoming the
norm.
Another major disap-
pointment. He’s heading
home for the weekend.
McIlroy, the over-
whelming favorite from
Northern Ireland, started
on the back nine after a
50-minute rain delay
Friday, made a couple of
early birdies, then claimed the outright lead
for the first time when he rolled in a 30-foot
eagle putt at the 18th hole.
McIlroy picked up two more birdies in his
final three holes for a 4-under 67, good
enough for a one-shot lead over Jason Day
and Jim Furyk. Day turned in the best round
of the day with a 65, and Furyk had a 68.
Rickie Fowler and Ryan Palmer were two
shots back, with Fowler surging into con-
tention again at a major by shooting 66. He
is already the first player since Woods in
2005 to finish in the top five of the first
three majors of the year.
And don’t forget Phil Mickelson, who
rolled in an 8-footer for eagle at the final
hole for a 67. Lefty was just three shots
back.
Woods, meanwhile, struggled to his sec-
ond straight 74 and failed to make the cut at
a major for only the fourth time in his pro-
fessional career.
“That was tough,” Woods said. “I hit a lot
of shots out there. Seventy-four of ‘em. It
was a long day. ”
Palmer was tied for the lead after the open-
ing round with Lee Westwood and Kevin
Chappell. Palmer turned in the best follow-
up from that group, shooting 70 to stay
firmly in the mix. Westwood faded a bit with
a 73 and was four shots back. Chappell
struggled to a 74 and dropped six strokes off
the pace.

SAN BERNARDINO — For the second
consecutive year, District 52 will have a
team in the West Regional championship
game.
Pacifica American rode a masterful pitch-
ing gem from right-hander Elijah Ricks to a
1-0 win over Hawaii state champion
Honolulu in Friday’s West Regional semifi-
nal at Al Houghton Stadium in San
Bernardino.
Ricks went the distance, setting down the
first 12 batters he faced. He went on to strike
out eight against no walks and even showed
a flair for the dramatic. With the opposi-
tion’s best chance coming in their final at-
bat, Ricks escaped a two-out jam with run-
ners at second and third by inducing a soft
comebacker off the bat of Honolulu No. 3
hitter Dante Park to end it.
Pacifica manager Steve Falk said it was
one of the best games he’s ever seen the 12-
year-old pitch.
“It’s up there pretty high.” Falk said.
“I’ve seen him throw like this a couple
times against a regular Little League team.
But against a quality team like Hawaii, it’s
one I’ll remember for awhile.”
With the win, Pacifica advances to
Saturday’s championship game against
Nevada champ Mountain Ridge to determine
thoroughfare to the Little League World
Series. The two met earlier in the tourna-
ment, with Mountain Ridge triumphing 13-
2 on Aug. 5 during pool play. With a 5-1 win
over Southern California in Friday’s other
semifinal game, Mountain Ridge is current-
ly the only undefeated team left in regional
play.
However, it was just one year ago when
Belmont-Redwood Shores took an undefeat-
ed tourney record into the championship
game, only to fall 9-0 to Southern
California champ Eastlake.

BRISTOL, Conn. — Two girls on teams competing to
make it to the Little League World Series won’t be facing
each other in the Mid-Atlantic regional championship after
all.
On Friday, Mo’Ne Davis’ Taney Youth Baseball
Association team from Philadelphia defeated the Colonie,
New York, team 6-5 to advance to Sunday’s finals. Thirteen-
year-old Mo’Ne did some key base-running in the fifth-
inning, when Taney took the lead for good. She reached
base on an error, went to third on a single and scored on a
two-run single.
But 12-year-old Kayla Roncin’s Toms River, New Jersey,
team lost 4-3 to the Newark, Delaware, team. Kayla, who
plays first base, came to bat in the bottom of the sixth
inning for Toms River with two outs, two runners on base
and her team down by a run. She fell behind in the count
then hit a ground ball to second base for a tag play to end
the game.
Sunday’s winner will advance to the World Series starting
Aug. 14 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
Girls playing in Little league isn’t new. But only 16 girls
have played in the Little League World Series in the past 67
years, Little League spokesman Brian McClintock said.
Mo’ne had said earlier this week it would have been fun to
compete against another girl.
The Taney manager, Alex Rice, calls Mo’ne his big-game
pitcher.
“She’s one of the core team leaders,” he said this week.
“She’s unflappable.”

College football and basketball players could be in line
for paydays worth thousands of dollars once they leave
school after a landmark ruling Friday that may change the
way the NCAAdoes business.
A federal judge ruled that the NCAA can’t stop players
from selling the rights to their names, images and like-
nesses, striking down NCAA regulations that prohibit
them from getting anything other than scholarships and
the cost of attendance at schools.
U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken in
Oakland, California, ruled in favor of
former UCLA basketball star Ed
O’Bannon and 19 others in a lawsuit
that challenged the NCAA’s regulation
of college athletics on antitrust
grounds. The injunction she issued
allows players at big schools to have
money generated by television con-
tracts put into a trust fund to pay them
when they leave.
In a partial victory for the NCAA,
though, Wilken said the body that governs college athlet-
ics could set a cap on the money paid to athletes, as long
as it allows at least $5,000 per athlete per year of compe-
tition. Individual schools could offer less money, she
said, but only if they don’t unlawfully conspire among
themselves to set those amounts.
That means FBS football players and Division I basket-
ball players who are on rosters for four years could poten-
tially get around $20,000 when they leave school. Wilken
said she set the $5,000 annual threshold to balance the
NCAA’s fears about huge payments to players.
“The NCAA’s witnesses stated that their concerns about
student-athlete compensation would be minimized or
negated if compensation was capped at a few thousand dol-
lars per year,” Wilken wrote.
The NCAA said it disagreed with the decision, but was
still reviewing it.
But Sonny Vaccaro, the former athletic shoe representa-
tive who recruited O’Bannon to launch the suit, said it was
a huge win for college athletes yet to come.
“The kids who are going to benefit from this are kids
who don’t even know what we did today,” Vaccaro said. “It
may only be $5,000 but it’s $5,000 more than they get
now. ”
The ruling comes after a five-year battle by O’Bannon
and others on behalf of college athletes to receive a share
of the billions of dollars generated by college athletics by
huge television contracts. O’Bannon, who was MVP of
the 1995 UCLA national championship basketball team,
said he signed on as lead plaintiff after seeing his image in
a video game authorized by the NCAAthat he was not paid
for.
Any payments to athletes would not be immediate. The
ruling said regulations on pay will not take effect until the
start of the next FBS football and Division I basketball
recruiting cycle. Wilken said they will not affect any
prospective recruits before July 1, 2016. The NCAAcould
also appeal, and has said previously that it would take the
issue all the way to the Supreme Court.
Former athletes will not be paid, because they gave up
their right to damages in a pre-trial move so the case
would be heard by a judge, not a jury.
As part of her ruling, Wilken rejected both the NCAA’s
definition of amateurism and its justification for not pay-
ing players. But she did not prohibit the NCAA from
enforcing all of its other rules and regulations and said
that some restrictions on paying players may still serve a
limited purpose if they are necessary to maintain the pop-
ularity of major college football and basketball.
“The big picture is the NCAAlost the definition of ama-
teurism it has been pushing for years,” said Michael
Carrier, a Rutgers law professor and antitrust expert.
Wilken was not asked to rule on the fairness of a system
that pays almost everyone but the athletes themselves.
Instead, the case was centered on federal antitrust law and
whether the prohibition against paying players promotes
the game of college football and does not restrain compe-
tition in the marketplace.
During a three-week trial in June, attorneys for the
NCAA said moving away from the concept of amateurism
where players participated for the love of the game would
drive spectators away from college sports and would upset
the competitive balance among schools and conferences.
Several players testified during the trial that they viewed
playing sports as their main occupation in college, say-
ing the many hours they had to devote to the sport made it
difficult — if not impossible — to function like regular
students.
“I was an athlete masquerading as a student,” O’Bannon
said at trial. “I was there strictly to play basketball. I did
basically the minimum to make sure I kept my eligibility
academically so I could continue to play.”
Witnesses called by the NCAA spoke of the education
provided to athletes as payment for their services and said
the college model has functioned well for more than a cen-
tury. They contended that paying players would make col-
lege sports less popular and could force schools to cut
other programs funded by the hundreds of millions of dol-
lars taken in by big-time athletics.
The lawsuit was part of a tide of pressure on the NCAAt o
change the amateur model. Football players at
Northwestern University have pushed to be allowed to
unionize, and other lawsuits have claimed that athletes
have a right to better compensation. This week, the
NCAA’s board voted to allow the five wealthiest confer-
ences in the country to set their own rules, paving the way
for the 65 schools in those conferences to potentially
offer richer scholarships and health benefits to players.
Carrier said the outcome might not be scary at all
because the money may not be huge and will be paid only
after a player’s career is over.
“We’ll soon see that this isn’t the end of the world as we
know it,” Carrier said.
“The irony of this is that a lot of the other changes in
college sports going on were made because of this
impending ruling.”

UNreal Expectations are not UNcommon

lts a lunny thing when it comes to getting a home ready lor sale. There's
a big push to practically remodel the entire home within two weeks and do
the UNpossible of getting it photographed in time for the broker tour and
open houses.
The reality is that it can be done if everything is coordinated to the nano-
second! This is accomplished by having strong cooperation between the
seller, listing agent and contractors
who are completing the updating.  
The expectation that a miracle will
occur is normal and usually, it
comes pretty close to that! 
Alittle llexibility is needed lrom
all involved. There are always
going to be a few loose ends to
work around, but the visual impact
is remarkable when you see the
before and after photos of the
property. The expression l usually
hear lrom sellers is "Why haven't
we done this before!"

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Billy Butler is hot at
the plate and Kansas City Royals are even hot-
ter.
Butler homered and drove in three runs and
right fielder Nori Aoki threw out two runners in
the same inning as the Royals beat the San
Francisco Giants 4-2 Friday night for their fifth
straight victory.
The Royals, who have not been in the play-
offs since winning the 1985 World Series, hold
a half game lead for the second AL wild card.
They have won 13 of 16.
Butler, who is hitting .423 in the past seven
games, homered with two out in the first off
Madison Bumgarner (13-9). In the past 13
games, Butler has four home runs and 11 RBIs.
“Those are feeling really good,” Butler said.
“Bumgarner is one of the best pitchers in the
National League and in baseball in general. I
just caught one out front. He battled all night,
throwing a complete game. We capitalized on a
few mistakes and got some runs across.”
Said Bumgarner of Butler’s homer, “It just
caught a bit too much of the middle of the plate.
He’s a good hitter.”
Butler singled home the go-ahead run in the
two-run sixth, which was aided by throwing
errors on Giants infielders Michael Morse and
Matt Duffy. Alex Gordon had an RBI single.
“Morse had more time than he thought,”
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “You’d just
like to get one out there. Duffy knew he came of
the bag and was trying to get the out (at first).”
The Giants scored twice in the third on
Joaquin Arias’ double and Matt Duffy’s single.
Aoki prevented a bigger inning, throwing out
Hunter Pence at third and Arias at home.
“You might get two in a game, but never two
in an inning,” Aoki said through a translator.
The Giants out hit the Royals 12-7, but self-
destructed with three errors and base running
blunders.
Bumgarner went the distance, allowing four
runs on seven hits, while walking none and
striking out five. His road scoreless streak was
snapped at 17 innings.
Jason Frasor (3-1), the second of five Royals
pitchers, threw a spotless sixth, striking out
two. Greg Holland pitched a flawless ninth for
his American League-leading 33rd save in 35
opportunities. It was Holland’s 100th career
save.
Training room
Giants: First baseman Brandon Belt was
placed on the concussion list for the second
time within a month. Belt missed 12 games
after a July 19 concussion before being acti-
vated Aug. 2, but left the game Wednesday
with a headache.

IRVINE — Tom Shields upset three-time
Olympic champion Michael Phelps by a
hundredth of a second to win the 100-meter
butterfly at the U.S. national champi-
onships Friday night.
Shields touched in 51.29 seconds, tying
for the second-fastest time in the world this
year. Phelps was second in 51.30, losing for
the second time in two events in the biggest
meet since he launched a comeback in April.
“It was pretty terrible,” said Bob Bowman,
Phelps’ coach.
Four of the seven quickest times in the
world were recorded in the morning prelimi-
naries, led by Phelps’ 51.17. But he couldn’t
keep it together in the final against Shields,
who won the 200 fly earlier in the meet.
“I knew I could make it a race, so I decided
to go with confidence,” said Shields, who
was cheered on by family and friends from
his hometown of Huntington Beach.
Phelps is still likely to earn a spot on the
U.S. team for the Pan Pacific
Championships this month, but he could
have guaranteed himself a trip to Australia
with a win in the event that he calls “my
baby. ”
Tim Phillips was third in 51.54. Ryan
Lochte finished fifth in 52.21.
Phillips led after one lap, when Phelps
was seventh. Known as a devastating closer,
Phelps roared down the stretch, battling
Shields every inch of the way.
“I knew in the last 15 (meters) it was
going to be close,” Shields said. “I took one
look. Phelps swims with these ridiculously
high elbows.”

Woods was 109th place after Thursday, his only realistic goal
to make the cut.
He wasn’t even close.
Woods lipped out a 3-foot birdie attempt at the third, missing
a chance to gain some momentum. He followed with a bogey at
No. 4, after driving into a fairway bunker, and took a double
bogey at the sixth when he drove far left of the fairway and
three-putted from 18 feet. Still reeling from that debacle, he
yanked his tee shot at the par-5 seventh into a muddy bog, could
only pitch up to the fairway, pulled the next shot behind the
green, failed to reach the short grass with his chip, and made
another bogey.
The back nine was better — a couple of birdies, one bogey —
but it didn’t matter at that point.
Wood was all done at this PGA, still stuck on 14 major titles,
the last one coming more than six years ago.
McIlroy, on the other hand, is at the top of his game. He
arrived at Valhalla having won his last two tournaments. He cap-
tured the British Open at Royal Liverpool with a wire-to-wire
performance, and rallied for a victory at Firestone last weekend.
Midway through the final major of the year, he is once again
the guy everyone is chasing.
“I’m confident,” McIlroy said. “I’m really in control of my
game and my emotions. I need to do that over the weekend as
well.”
He dropped a shot with a bogey at the 12th, but birdied two of
the next three holes. He seized the outright lead for the first time
with the long putt at No. 18 and nearly made another eagle at the
par-5 seventh. He stuck a shot from 243 yards to 8 feet, but the
putt stayed right of the cup.
McIlroy grimaced and rolled back his head.
No problem.
He closed with another birdie at the ninth, finishing off his
round by curling in a 16-footer that left him at 9-under 133 over-
all.
McIlroy is going for his fourth major title at age 25, having
already won the PGA Championship at Kiawah in 2012. He’s
got plenty of youth behind him — Fowler is 25, Day 26.
The old-timers didn’t fare too shabby, either.
Steve Stricker — a 47-year-old, part-time player who was
picked as an assistant U.S. Ryder Cup captain this week —
showed he’s still got plenty of game. He made four birdies on
his first nine holes on the way to a 68, which left him four shots
back along with Westwood. Also at 5 under were Graham DeLaet
(68), Victor Dubuisson (68), Joost Luiten (69), Henrik Stenson
(71).
Kentucky native Kenny Perry will get to celebrate his 54th
birthday on Sunday at Valhalla after shooting 69. Apair of 51-
year-olds, Vijay Singh and Colin Montgomerie, also made the
cut.
Asteady rain forced officials to suspend the round after just 20
minutes because of too much water on the putting surfaces and
fairways. Work crews already were using squeegees on the
greens when another burst of showers hit Valhalla.
Play was halted as Palmer was playing the first hole. He hung
out in the tower with some volunteers, snapping pictures of the
water.
“I wasn’t quite sure we should have teed off, to be honest with
you,” he said. “You could barely see the fairway.”
The sun came out late in the day.
Not soon enough to brighten Woods’ day.

Oakland linebacker NickRoach,left,tackles Minnesota’s Jerick McKinnon during the Raiders’10-6 loss in the preseason opener
for both teams Friday in Minnesota.
was just one of many moves during a busy offseason for
the Raiders, and he’s coming off a rough year. With three
seasons of at least 4,000 passing yards for the Texans,
though, Schaub has the potential to stabilize this long-
unsettled position.
Since Rich Gannon won the NFL MVP award and guided
the Raiders to the Super Bowl after that career year in
2002, the Raiders have had 17 different quarterbacks start
at least one regular season game. Schaub will be the 18th
in September, barring injury for the 33-year-old.
Both teams escaped without significant injuries, which
is always the primary goal of these preseason contests.
Raiders backup defensive tackle Justin Ellis walked slow-
ly off the field with a head injury. The Vikings also
announced backup safety Mistral Raymond was being
evaluated for a head injury.
Not only was this game the first time making the calls
from the sideline for new Vikings head coach Mike
Zimmer, but it marked the start of a two-year stay at TCF
Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota for the
Vikings while their new fixed-roof facility is being built to
replace the Metrodome downtown.
The Vikings played here once before, on Dec. 20, 2010,
eight days after the Metrodome’s roof was ripped open and
toppled by a snowstorm. That game against Chicago was
moved into the winter weather, and Brett Favre’s last NFL
play turned out to be his head banging against the frozen
turf during a sack by then-Bears and current Vikings defen-
sive end Corey Wootton.
The cold could wait for another day, though, on this pic-
turesque summer night with a kickoff temperature of 81
degrees and a hazy sunset distracting from the penalties,
punts and incomplete passes once the second and third
stringers took over for good.
Cassel finished 5 for 6 for 62 yards, connecting with
Cordarrelle Patterson twice for first downs. With Adrian
Peterson resting, Matt Asiata capped the opening drive
with a 1-yard touchdown run. Cassel took the Vikings
another 10 plays on his next turn, setting up a 30-yard
field goal by Blair Walsh.
The Vikings were concerned enough about the safety
spot next to Harrison Smith that they signed veteran Chris
Crocker this week. With Jamarca Sanford, Robert Blanton
and Andrew Sendejo all sitting out with injuries, Coleman
got a chance for extended action at that position, another
entry in that crowded field.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OAKLAND — Scott Kazmir
faced the minimum through six
innings before running into trou-
ble, Coco Crisp hit a bases-loaded
triple, and the Oakland Athletics
beat the Minnesota Twins 6-5 on
Friday night for their 11th straight
win in the series.
Oakland owns its longest
unbeaten run against the Twins,
whose last victory came at Target
Field on Sept. 10, 2013. The A’s
are 5-0 this year.
Kazmir (13-4) tossed just eight
balls among his first 42 pitches
through four perfect innings
before Kennys Vargas broke up the
bid with a single off shortstop Jed
Lowrie’s glove. Yet the A’s turned a
spectacular double play on a
grounder by Kurt Suzuki to third
two batters later.
Kazmir was dominant deep into
the game five days after being
handed his first loss in six starts
and allowing a season-high 10
hits in a Sunday loss to Kansas
City.
He followed fellow southpaw
Jon Lester’s three-hit gem in a 3-0
win Thursday with his own impres-
sive outing — until the Twins
made it interesting.
Trevor Plouffe hit an RBI single
in the seventh as Minnesota ended
a 19-inning scoreless streak and
avoided being shut out in consecu-
tive games for the first time this
season. Oswaldo Arcia singled in a
run and Chris Parmelee’s two-run
double chased Kazmir. Ryan Cook
entered and immediately gave up
Eduardo Nunez’s RBI double.
Sean Doolittle retired former A’s
slugger Josh Willingham on a
called third strike to end it for his
18th save in 21 opportunities. The
A’s bullpen set an Oakland record
with 28 2-3 scoreless innings. The
old mark of 27 2-3 was set in June
1998.
Kyle Gibson (10-9) allowed six
runs — five earned — and five hits,
struck out three and walked a sea-
son-high five in five-plus innings
while facing the A’s for the first
time. He dropped to 4-1 in six
starts against the ALWest this sea-

Gibson loaded the bases on two

of steps later. Sogard doubled in
two runs the next inning.

We found a home-like
a[ oroa(íc ,oívIío«l
as the underdog No. 4 seed, Falk gave a
pointed motivational speech. That speech
was pointed at Williamsport, Pennsylvania
and the Little League World Series.
“‘We’re not packing to go home tomor-
row. We’re in this thing,’” Falk said of the
message conveyed in the speech. “‘Why not
us?’ And they rallied around each other
today. ”
Pacifica rallied with dominant pitching,
clutch defense and just enough offense. It
was a tremendous pitchers’ duel between
Ricks and Honolulu right-hander Caleb
Markwith. Both pitchers threw complete
games. And while Ricks surrendered two
clean singles, Markwith gave up just one
hit; and an argument can be made the lone
single off the bat of Spencer Karalius should
have been an error.
Karalius’ second-inning swing of the bat
produced the lone run of the game. Pacifica
set the table with one out on back-to-back
walks by Chris Rodriguez and Andrew
Harkness. Nate Azzopardi followed with a
strikeout, but he battled for 11 pitches, at
one point fouling off five straight offerings
from Markwith. Karalius followed and fell
behind in the count 1-2, but shot a hard
grounder towards first base which glanced
off the fielder’s glove and into right field,
allowing pinch runner Jordan Salgado to
score from second base.
“We were just trying to get guys on and
put a little pressure on [Markwith],” Falk
said. “Either get the big hit or put the ball in
play and just try to get them to make a mis-
take. I told them before the game, we just
need to push one or two across, give Elijah
a little breathing room, and see what we can
do.”
Ricks did the rest, with a little help from
the sterling second base defense of Tyler
Shaw. Through its three previous games in
the tournament, Pacifica committed 10
errors. Friday, not only did the defense play
an errorless game, but Shaw came through
with several key plays, the highlight of
which was a diving catch in the fifth rob
Maxx Muramoto of extra bases and keep a
1-2-3 inning in tact — of which, Ricks had
four in the game.
“I thought that was a really good play, ”
Pacifica third baseman Chris Rodriguez
said. “I thought that ball was getting
through, and if it did it would have been a
double and would have gotten a rally going.
It probably saved a run.”
Pacifica got one other previous scare in
the fourth inning on a rocket to right field
off the bat of Aaron Tom. It was a deep shot
down the line, but Salgado was playing him
perfectly. The reason Salgado was posi-
tioned so well was because prior to the
pitch, Pacifica coach Dave Shaw reposi-
tioned his outfield defense to shade towards
right field against the right-handed hitting
Tom.
Through the first five innings, Ricks
retired 15 of 16 batters. The only blemish
through that stretch was a two-out bloop
single off the bat of the Park in the fifth to
break up Ricks’ perfect game.
The right-hander was nails to the strike
zone. He got strike-one on the first seven
batters he faced. He persevered in the first
inning against Honolulu’s leadoff hitter
Tom, winning a nine-pitch battle by induc-
ing a groundout to shortstop Christian
Falk. After that, through the first four
innings, Ricks held every batter he faced to
five or less pitches. With an 85-pitch limit
on Little League pitchers, his efficiency
early on loomed large. He totaled 74 pitch-
es in the game.
“He wasn’t coming out,” Falk said. “Once
he went over 20 pitches, he’s not available
for tomorrow. So, he was our guy. He was it.
I told him before the game, ‘You’re our guy.
Try to get in a groove early. ’ And he did.”
Not since 2007 has there been a 1-0 game
in West Regional play, when Nevada state
champ Green Valley topped Hawaii’s Waipio
in pool play. It is the first 1-0 game in a
semifinal game since the inception of the
round-robin format in 2001.

DENVER — The Seattle Seahawks’ presea-
son opener against the Denver Broncos
devolved into a game of flag football, which
wasn’t unexpected in light of the NFL’s
renewed emphasis on illegal contact and
holding.
Surprisingly, only a handful of the 25
penalties called in Denver’s 21-16 win
Thursday night fell into those categories —
and all of those were whistled on the
Broncos.
Many believe the NFL’s crackdown is in
direct response to the Seahawks’ “Legion of
Boom” defense and the Super Bowl champs’
habit of pushing, pulling, tugging and
shoving wide receivers.
Most were for old-fashioned transgres-
sions, some stemming from the bad blood
that developed between the teams in the
wake of Seattle’s 43-8 shellacking of the
Broncos in the Super Bowl.
“There was one hands-to-the-face penalty,
which is a new emphasis. There were no
offensive PI (pass interference) penalties
called, which is a new emphasis,” Seahawks
coach Pete Carroll said. “It was just on our
end of it, just pretty sloppy play. ”
There were only eight flags thrown in the
Hall of Fame game between the Giants and
Bills that kicked off the preseason. Aside
from Seattle-Denver, there were five other
games Thursday night and they featured an
average of 12.8 flags, half of what was
walked off at Sports Authority Field, where
there was one moan-inducing stretch of
penalties on five consecutive snaps.
“To be honest with you I think the refer-
ees did a really good job on both sides,”
Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson said.
“We got some penalties on us defensively
and offensively, they got some penalties on
them defensively and offensively. I think
the referees are doing a great job trying to
keep it as clean as possible. This game is
tough as it gets already, and so I think the
referees did a tremendous job tonight.”
All those yellow flags littering the field,
however, bogged down the game that also
had a 46-minute lightning delay in the first
quarter.
“It was just out of rhythm, a real sloppy,
choppy game,” Seahawks safety Earl
Thomas said.
Denver had a dozen penalties for 95 yards.
“We knew there was going to be a lot of
flags,” Denver defensive tackle Terrance
Knighton said. “It’s the preseason, and it’s
a lot of new rules — you can’t touch
receivers any more than you already could-
n’t, whatever that means. But it’s just
things we can improve, we’ll improve, but
physical things, that’s football.”
Seattle’s 13 infractions for 131 yards
included: unnecessary roughness, taunting
and unsportsmanlike conduct to go with
three neutral zone penalties, an offside call,
a chop block, a pass interference, encroach-
ment, offensive holding on a lineman and
two false starts.
Seahawks star cornerback Richard
Sherman said recently that the league’s re-
emphasis on illegal contact and defensive
holding “will have very minimal impact on
our game and how we play it.”
Broncos star receiver Demaryius Thomas,
who was Denver’s lone bright spot in the
Super Bowl with a record 13 receptions, said
he didn’t notice any difference in the
Seahawks’ physical pass-coverage style.
“Like they did in the Super Bowl, they got
in our face, pressed, and we were able to go
out and convert,” said Thomas, who had five
catches for 52 yards Thursday night.
The last time the league made illegal con-
tact and defensive holding a point of
emphasis was in 2004 amid complaints that
New England’s defensive backs were maul-
ing Peyton Manning’s receivers.

demonstration against the Israeli offensive in Gaza.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
JERUSALEM — A three-day truce col-
lapsed Friday in a new round of violence
after Gaza militants resumed rocket attacks
on Israel, drawing a wave of retaliatory
airstrikes that killed at least five
Palestinians, including three children.
The eruption of fighting shattered a brief
calm in the monthlong war and dealt a blow
to Egyptian-led efforts to secure a long-term
cease-fire between the bitter enemies.
A delegation of Palestinian negotiators
remained in Cairo in hopes of salvaging the
talks. But participants said the negotiations
were not going well, and Israel said it would
not negotiate under fire. The Palestinian del-
egation met again late Friday with Egyptian
mediators.
Azzam al-Ahmad, head of the Palestinian
delegation, said the delegation would stay
in Egypt until it reaches an agreement that
“ensures” the rights of the Palestinian peo-
ple. “We told Egyptians we are staying,” he
told reporters.
The indirect talks are meant to bring an
end to the deadliest round of fighting
between Israel and Hamas since the Islamic
militant group seized control of Gaza in
2007. In four weeks of violence, more than
1,900 Gazans have been killed, roughly
three-quarters of them civilians, according
to Palestinian and U.N. officials. Sixty-
seven people were killed on the Israeli side,
including three civilians.
The Palestinians are seeking an end to an
Israel-Egyptian blockade imposed on Gaza
after the Hamas takeover. Militants had
warned they would resume fighting after the
cease-fire expired unless there was a deal to
ease the restrictions.
The blockade, which Israel says is needed
to prevent arms smuggling, has constrained
movement in and out of the territory of 1.8
million people and brought Gaza’s economy
to a standstill. Israel says any long-term
agreement must include guarantees that
Hamas, an armed group sworn to Israel’s
destruction, will give up its weapons.
In Cairo, Palestinian participants in the
talks were pessimistic about the chances of
a deal. They said Israel was opposing every
Palestinian proposal for lifting the block-
ade.
For instance, the Palestinians are seeking
greater movement of goods through Israeli-
controlled cargo crossings, while Israel
wants restrictions on “dual-use” items that
could potentially be used for military pur-
poses, they said.
Israel also was resisting demands to allow
movement between Gaza and the West Bank
— Palestinian territories that are located on
opposite sides of Israel, they said.
“Israel in these talks wants to repackage
the same old blockade. Our demands are end-
ing the blockade and having free access for
people and goods. This is what ending the
blockade means. But Israel is not accepting
that,” said Bassam Salhi, a Palestinian
negotiator.
Negotiators said they expected to remain
in Cairo for several days. But with violence
resuming, it was unclear how much progress
could be made.
The Israeli delegation to the Cairo talks
left Egypt on Friday morning, and it was not
clear if it would return. “There will not be
negotiations under fire,” Israeli government
spokesman Mark Regev said.
In Cairo, Khaled al-Batch, a leader of
Islamic Jihad, a smaller militant group in
Gaza, said that without a deal on easing the
blockade, an informal truce might be the
best that could be achieved.
“When there is no cease-fire, that does not
mean there is escalation,” he said. “Our pri-
ority now is to focus on stopping the Israeli
aggression against our people and achiev-
ing our demands.”
Israel-Hamas truce collapses inviolence

NEWYORK — He is 86 years old, his eye-
sight is failing and much of his recent work
reads like a man saying goodbye.
But W.S. Merwin continues to write
poems; he cannot help
himself.
“I wrote the last one
about 10 days ago, it
doesn’t stop, and I don’t
know where it comes
from,” says Merwin, a
two-time Pulitzer Prize
winner and former U.S.
poet laureate widely
regarded as among the
greatest poets of the past half-century.
“I remember, just over a year ago, after
several readings and two red-eye flights, I
was absolutely exhausted. But in the middle
of the night, I woke up with a line and a half
of poetry to write.”
Speaking by phone from his house on the
island of Maui in Hawaii, Merwin said he
hopes to finish at least another book, health
permitting, and also discussed his latest col-
lection, “The Moon Before Morning.” Like
his Pulitzer Prize winner from 2008 “The
Shadow of Sirius,” its themes are age, time
and memory. Phrases such as “this unrepeat-
able present,” “the current music of vanish-
ing” and “the long-gone night pasture” can
be found throughout.
In “Relics,” he writes of his affinity for
worlds that have disappeared.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Miley’s back,
y’all.
Miley Cyrus made her delayed-due-to-ill-
ness return to the town where she grew up
Thursday night, bringing a flying hot dog,
a dwarf dressed as the Liberty Bell, a dozen
recognizable hits, a taunt to the girls who
beat her up in school and a lot of inappro-
priate touching. Drawing a crowd of mostly
young women — and a hefty number of
moms — the show was a little bit pop con-
cert, a little bit late-night pay cable and a
little bit great.
In the audience: Two 20-something
women with a gift for arts and crafts arrived
at Cyrus’ homecoming concert with identi-
cal bedazzled shirts that read, “R.I.P.
Hannah Montana.” Look no further than
that for the official theme to Cyrus’ Bangerz
Tour, a pastiche of weird culture that plays a
lot like a YouTube channel devoted to absur-
dist performance art.
The surprising thing, after the former
teen television star raised such a lather last
year with a highly memorable MTV Video
Music Awards appearance, is how tame the
show actually is.
It’s true that Nashville is a pretty quiet
town. And sure, Cyrus does simulate sex
acts on stage during a few songs — Abe
Lincoln has never seemed less presidential
— and mentions drug use. But the woman
whose twerking and foam finger started a

‘Storm’ is weak
Mother Nature deserves better lines
By Jocelyn Noveck
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
“Into the Storm” is a movie that addresses the fearsome
power of nature. Alas, it also addresses the fearsome power
of a bad script to distract us from the fearsome power of
nature.
Add to that a set of cardboard characters, and what you
have is a movie that should have dispensed with the
humans and dialogue altogether, and been a documentary.
If, of course, the storms were real. Which they aren’t.
The film, directed by Steven Quale, runs only 89 minutes.
And yet, despite the often engrossing special effects, it
drags. It seems there are only so many times you can watch
a funnel cloud bear down, while someone yells out: “We

gotta get out of here. C’mon!”
The action takes place in one day in the
small town of Silverton, somewhere in the
heartland. Four high school students have
just been killed in a tornado in Oklahoma,
which is somewhere nearby.
And yet, Silverton’s high school is plan-
ning to go ahead with its outdoor gradua-
tion, despite the forecast. Maybe this is
why Vice Principal Gary Fuller — Richard
Armitage, the dwarf leader Thorin of the
“Hobbit” movies — is frowning, a state in
which he remains throughout the film (his
Thorin, though shorter, was much more
expressive.) He heads to school with his
teenage sons, Donnie and Trey.
Meanwhile, a storm-tracking team is on
the chase, led by a driven, self-centered doc-
umentary filmmaker, Pete (Matt Walsh).
He’s spent years developing the perfect
storm-tracking vehicle — the Titus, a war
tank with giant claws that can bore into the
ground amid high winds.
Pete’s main assistant is a no-nonsense
meteorologist, Allison (Sarah Wayne
Callies), a single mom to a five-year-old
daughter, whom she’s left home for three
months with Grandma. Gary, the vice prin-
cipal, is also a single parent. But though an
eventual romance is briefly hinted at
between these attractive folks literally
caught in a storm, the idea is dropped, like a
piece of twisted wreckage from the sky.
(John Swetnam wrote the screenplay. )
In any case, back to that graduation.
Before the kids can toss their caps into the
air, the storm hits — a series of tornadoes
like no one has ever seen. Making things
worse, Gary’s older son, Donnie, is missing
— he’s ditched graduation to help a pretty
girl make a video at an abandoned paper
mill. They’ll soon be trapped by rising
waters, and making goodbye videos to their
parents.
Speaking of those videos: The movie uses
a found-footage device to tell its story.
These snippets of “real” video are supposed
to lend a documentary-style feel, but they’re
often ditched for conventional storytelling,
rendering the whole idea ineffective.
But that’s not the biggest problem.
What’s worse is that there’s nothing inter-
esting about any of these characters, with
the possible exception of Donnie (Max
Deacon) — the only person you care about,
even a little.
There are also a couple of stereotypical
dufuses — Donk and Reevis — who drink
and swear and whoop and holler as the
storm comes in. Darned if they’re not the
most annoying characters in any movie
you’ll see this entire year. We’d bet money
on it.
In any case, the star — the ONLYstar — is
the weather. Director Quale knows his way
around special effects, and so the CGI torna-
does are interesting to watch, for a time. But
there’s little attention to logic. Silverton is
a small town. And yet, we suddenly see huge
jet planes, like those you’d find at JFK or
LAX, being lifted up into the sky. Where’d
they come from?
Maybe that’s not the point. Maybe we
should just sit back and be awed by the
power of Mother Nature.
OK. But she deserved a better script.
“Into the Storm,” a Warner Bros. release,
is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture
Association of America for “sequences of
intense destruction and peril, and language
including some sexual references.” Running
time: 89 minutes. One-half star out of four.

STORM
remember one wonderful period of late sum-
mer and autumn into winter, way up in the
mountains of northern Portugal, an area
that really had not changed since the
Romans. So this was very, very ancient in
so many ways — the architecture, the way
of farming. I was just hugging myself. It
was wonderful.”
Born in New York City and raised in New
Jersey and Pennsylvania, Merwin is a
Presbyterian minister’s son whose earliest
memories of language include writing out
the sermons of his father. He was compos-
ing his own verse while still a boy and was
class poet at Princeton University. His first
collection, “A Mask for Janus,” won the
Yale Younger Poets prize in 1951, and by
the end of the decade, his friends and
acquaintances included Ezra Pound, T. S.
Eliot, Sylvia Plath and Robert Lowell.
His style and subject matter would change
profoundly, from the classical influences of
his early poems to the anti-war themes of
the 1960s to the more condensed and philo-
sophical verse of recent years, influenced
by his immersion in Buddhism.
Throughout, he has been a man of peace —
he was a conscientious objector during
World War II — a recorder of the past, a
believer in nature and a skeptic of
humankind. At his Princeton graduation, he
read a commencement poem that mourned
those who had died in war and explained to
the graduation committee that he had “little
optimism” about the future.
“I think what we’ve been doing to the
Earth, especially since the dawn of the
machine age, is so appalling that I don’t
know (if) we can turn it back,” he says dur-
ing his interview.
The poem “No Flag” scorns the pursuit of
earthly glory, noting that after “the
speeches the medals the fame” comes the
“unmapped cold of death.” But some of the
poems in “Moon Before Morning” are
statements of gratitude, like “Variation on a
Theme,” a procession of “thank yous” for
everything from friendship and language to
the parts of his body and his windows
“above the rivers.”
Work these days can be a struggle for
Merwin in part because he writes in long-
hand (”The computer and I are not friends,”
he explains) and has to make the letters
large in order to read them. Still, the pic-
tures are clear in his mind and words them-
selves make him hopeful. “I do not have to
see/in order to believe,” he writes in “The
Color They Come To,” from his new collec-
tion. “I know that the flame tree is flower-
ing/when I see petals at my feet.”
“I think of one of my greatest heroes,
(William Butler) Yeats,” Merwin said. “He
wrote at length — although nothing of Yeats
is too long — about old age. He came to it
with real anger, as though it was an outrage.”
“I think of old age as being a time like
the others. It has its revelations of its own
that you can’t come to any other way. I
don’t have any of those feelings Yeats had
at all. I accept it with a certain amount of
curiosity. ”

national discussion balanced her naughty
images and saucier choreography with mes-
sages espousing personal freedom and a few
moments of pop perfection.
For the most part, the night — her fifth
date since restarting a U.S. tour that was
postponed for more than three months after
an allergic reaction to antibiotics — was
PG-13, filled with images that are unavoid-
able on the Internet where much of Cyrus’
audience spends its time. The only thing
pushing the show into truly R-rated territo-
ry was Cyrus’ spirited use of the F-word.
The debate over Cyrus’ transformation
from wholesome teen to a young woman
exploring her sexuality hovered around the
sold-out show as mothers shepherded thou-
sands of teenage girls into Bridgestone
Arena, where the 21-year-old singer once
attended shows as a teen herself. For some
she was a guilty pleasure, and the presence
of rolling papers, R-rated possibilities,
booty shorts and inflatable bananas at the
merch table only added to the feeling of
things being taboo.
Inside the arena, the crowd was all in as
Cyrus gave something of a history lesson
in over-the-top moments in pop music. For
all the guff Cyrus has gotten, she’s not cov-
ering unfamiliar territory. Touching your
special parts (Michael Jackson), well-
endowed dancers expert in the butterfly (2
Live Crew), uncovered rear ends (David Lee
Roth) are milestones passed decades ago.
And to be clear, there were a lot of these
things — a whole lot — during Cyrus’ 2
1/2-hour, 20-plus song set, along with fly-
ing kittens, inflatable dogs three stories
tall, plushy dancers, giant tongues and even
a simulated orgy. But there were also a lot of
impressive moments where Cyrus showed
her growing prowess as an entertainer. She
pushed her voice to the edge at times while
holding the attention of 16,000 people
with just a microphone, and had moms and
daughters singing every word with the same
gusto on major hits like “Wrecking Ball”
and “Party in the USA.”
Those were the moments that provided the
real spectacle.

BET YOU CAN’T EAT JUST ONE:
BIRMINGHAM’S PEANUT DEPOT
ROASTS A DELICIOUS TRADITION.
Whether you break open a single shell on
the spot, or pick up a large burlap bag full to
take home, a visit to the Peanut Depot in
downtown Birmingham, Alabama, trans-
ports you to a place of delectable tastes and
yummy smells where peanuts are prepared
and sent out into a waiting world. And what
an array of peanuts! Raw, boiled or roasted
peanuts; plain, salted or Cajun-spiced
peanuts; peanuts by the handful and peanuts
by the sack. The Peanut Depot’s output is
legion, sold fresh from the roaster in batch-
es to locals dropping by and sold in volume
at sports arenas near and far, including the
Cowboys’ stadium in Texas and the New
Orleans Superdome. And, miraculously, all
the roasted peanuts come from just four
antique peanut roasters lined up to one side
in a basic brick-walled room. The boiled
peanuts are cooked in large pots behind the
well-worn wood sales counter on the oppo-
site side of the room. The Peanut Depot was
founded in 1907 and until the 1980s used
just its three original roasting machines,
each capable of processing about 25 pounds
of peanuts in 40 minutes. In November
2008, to expand its capacity to keep up
with growing consumer demand, the Peanut
Depot took delivery of a fourth roaster, a
reconditioned Royal No. 5 coffee roaster
made in 1917. The Peanut Depot’s newer
roaster, having transitioned smoothly from
its original coffee bean duty, also cooks 25
pounds of peanuts in 40 minutes.
The Peanut Depot has been owned since
2006 by Lex Legate, whose warm greeting
and relaxed manner makes the casual visitor
want to linger, savoring both the conversa-
tion about roasting techniques and the
aroma from the roasters. Legate knows from
experience what people want to know: How
do the roasters work? How have Peanut
Depot operations changed since 1907? How
are repairs for these antique machines made?
And how are peanuts roasted in a modern
facility? He provides the answers to all
these questions and more, and in so doing
paints a picture of how Alabama life has
altered (or, in some cases, stayed the same)
since the turn of the 20th century when the
Peanut Depot opened for business. Astop in
the Peanut Depot offers, well, in a nutshell,
a delightful look at an authentic and deli-
cious part of Southern tradition.

ALABAMA AND THE PEANUT.
Alabama ranks third in peanut production in
the United States, behind Georgia and
Texas, harvesting an average of more than
400 million pounds of peanuts annually,
which generates more than $100 million
per year for the Alabama economy. The
peanut was mainly a garden crop for much of
the colonial period of North America and
was mostly used as animal feed until the
1930s. In the United States, a U.S.
Department of Agriculture program to
encourage agricultural production and
human consumption of peanuts was insti-
tuted in the late 19th and early 20th cen-
turies. George Washington Carver of
Alabama’s Tuskegee Institute (now
Tuskegee University) played a significant
role in the popularization of the peanut and
is often credited with inventing 300 differ-
ent uses for peanuts, (although, contrary to
legend, not peanut butter).
PEANUT DEPOT PARTICULARS. The
Peanut Depot is located at 2016 Morris Ave.
in the historic Loft District of downtown
Birmingham. It is set on a cobblestone
street and is surrounded by former warehous-
es that have been converted into loft apart-
ments and condominiums. Open 8 a.m. -
5:30 p.m. Monday – Friday and 9 a.m. – 1
p.m. Saturday. The Peanut Depot ships
peanuts in cans, bags or bulk. For more

pot@gmail.com.
AND REMEMBER: “No man in the
world has more courage than the man who
can stop after eating one peanut.” —

to them.
American planes conducted a second air-
drop of food and water early Saturday for
those trapped in the Sinjar mountains, said
Pentagon chief spokesman Rear Adm. John
Kirby. Escorted by two Navy fighter jets,
three planes dropped 72 bundles of supplies
for the refugees, including more than 28,000
meals and more than 1,500 gallons of water,
said Kirby, who spoke from New Delhi dur-
ing a trip with U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck
Hagel.
The extremists’ “campaign of terror
against the innocent, including the Yazidi
and Christian minorities, and its grotesque
and targeted acts of violence bear all the
warning signs and hallmarks of genocide,”
said U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. “For
anyone who needed a wake-up call, this is
it.”
Underscoring the sense of alarm, a
spokesman for Iraq’s human rights ministry
said hundreds of Yazidi women had been
seized by the militants. Kamil Amin, citing
reports from the victims’ families, said some
of the women were being held in schools in
Iraq’s second-largest city, Mosul.
“We think that the terrorists by now con-
sider them slaves and they have vicious
plans for them,” Amin told the Associated
Press. “We think that these women are going
to be used in demeaning ways by those ter-
rorists to satisfy their animalistic urges in a
way that contradicts all the human and
Islamic values.”
For the U.S. military, which withdrew its
forces from Iraq in late 2011 after more than
eight years of war, the re-engagement began
when two F/A-18 jets dropped 500-pound
bombs on a piece of artillery and the truck
towing it. The Pentagon said the militants
were using the artillery to shell Kurdish
forces defending Irbil, the capital of Iraq’s
autonomous Kurdish region, and home to a
U.S. consulate and about three dozen U.S.
military trainers.
Later Friday, the U.S. launched a second
round of airstrikes near Irbil, U.S. officials
said. The officials, speaking on condition of
anonymity because they weren’t authorized
to discuss the strikes publicly, said
unmanned aircraft hit a mortar and four Navy
F/A-18 fighter jets destroyed a seven-vehicle
convoy.
The U.S. State Department warned U.S. cit-
izens against all but essential travel to Iraq
and said those in the country were at high
risk for kidnapping and terrorist violence.
Expanding from their stronghold of
Mosul, the militants have captured a string
of towns and Iraq’s largest hydroelectric dam
and reservoir in recent weeks. Ethnic and
religious minorities, fearing persecution and
slaughter, have fled as their towns fell.
Many had taken refuge in the Khazer
Camp, set up near Irbil, but it was empty
Friday as nearby fighting prompted families
to flee once again.
Some made their way by car or on foot to
Irbil; others were unaccounted for amid the
sea of fleeing people. According to the U.N.,
more than 500,000 people have been dis-
placed by the violence in Iraq since June,
bringing the total this year to well over 1
million.
In Irbil, hundreds of uprooted men crowded
the streets of a Christian-dominated neigh-
borhood, expressing relief at the news of
U.S. airstrikes.
Nazar, one man lingering outside a bare-
bones building-turned-shelter, fled his main-
ly Christian town of Hamdaniya on
Wednesday, when their home began to shud-
der from the blast of nearby mortar fire.
“We want a solution,” said Nazar, who
spoke on condition he be identified only by
his first name, fearing his family’s safety.
“We don’t to flee our homes and jobs like
this. What is our future?”
In contrast to Washington’s decision to
invade Iraq more than a decade ago, both the
airdrop and the authorization of military
action against the Islamic State group were
widely welcomed by Iraqi and Kurdish offi-
cials fearful of the militants’ advance.
“We thank Barack Obama,” said Khalid
Jamal Alber, from the Religious Affairs
Ministry in the Kurdish government.
In his announcement Thursday night,
Obama had identified protecting the Yazidis
and defending Americans as the two objec-
tives for the airstrikes.
But on Friday, his spokesman, Josh
Earnest, said the U.S. was also prepared to
use military force to assist Iraqi forces and
the Kurds’ peshmerga militia.
While Iraq’s military has proven unable in
many cases to thwart the Islamic State force’s
capture of key cities, Earnest called the pesh-
merga a “capable fighting force” that had
shown an ability to regroup effectively.
At a checkpoint about 23 miles (38 kilo-
meters) from Irbil, Kurdish militiamen
vowed fierce resistance to any further Islamic
State advances, but they also remarked on the
ferocity of their foe.
Capt. Ziyran Mahmoud, 28, said Islamic
State fighters wore suicide belts as they
advanced in armored vehicles and would deto-
nate them — killing soldiers from both sides
— if Kurdish fighters came too close.
“They are ready to blow themselves up and
die,” Mahmoud said. “But the peshmerga
aren’t afraid. We are also ready to die for our
homeland.”
The Islamic State group captured Mosul in
June, and then launched a blitz toward the
south, sweeping over Sunni-majority towns
almost to the capital, Baghdad. It already
holds large parts of western Iraq, as well as
swaths of neighboring Syria.
Iraqi government forces crumbled in the
face of the assault but have since been able to
prevent the militants from advancing into
Shiite-majority areas. In the north, the Kurds
have been the main line of defense against
the radicals, but their fighters are stretched
over a long front trying to fend them off.
Hagel, traveling in India, said if Islamic
militants threaten U.S. interests in Iraq or
the thousands of refugees in the mountains,
the U.S. military has enough intelligence to
clearly single out the attackers and launch
effective airstrikes.
At the White House, Deputy National
Security Advisor Ben Rhodes met with mem-
bers of the Iraqi Yazidi community and “noted
that the United States will act, carefully and
responsibly, to prevent a potential act of
genocide,” said Deputy NSC spokeswoman
Bernadette Meehan. Rhodes “emphasized
that the United States will continue to pursue
a strategy that empowers Iraqis to confront
this crisis, including by providing urgent
assistance to Iraqi government and Kurdish
forces,” Meehan said.
The International Rescue Committee said
it was providing emergency medical care for
up to 4,000 dehydrated Yazidis, mostly
women and children, who survived without
food or water for up to six days hiding in the
Sinjar mountains before fleeing to a refugee
camp in Syria, where a civil war is raging.
Officials in Britain, Germany and else-
where pledged financial aid to support
humanitarian efforts in Iraq, and several top
European officials supported Obama’s deci-
sion to intervene with airstrikes.
British Prime Minister David Cameron
expressed special concern for the Yazidis
trapped on Mount Sinjar.
“They fear slaughter if they descend back
down the slopes but face starvation and dehy-
dration if they remain on the mountain,”
Cameron said. The world must help them in
their hour of desperate need.”
One Yazidi man, who identified himself as
Mikey Hassan, said he, his two brothers and
their families fled into the Sinjar mountains
and then escaped to the Kurdish city of
Dohuk after two days by shooting their way
past the militants. Hassan, in a telephone
interview with the AP, said he and his family
went about 17 hours with no food before get-
ting some bread. Details of his account could
not be independently corroborated.
Yazidis belong to ancient religion seen by
the Islamic State group as heretical. The
group also sees Shiite Muslims as apostates,
and has demanded Christians either convert
to Islam or pay a special tax.
Pope Francis also was engaged, sending an
envoy to Iraq to show solidarity with
Christians who have been forced from their
homes. There also was a papal plea on
Twitter: “Please take a moment to pray for all
those who have been forced from their homes
in Iraq.”

IRAQ
he will not send American ground troops
back to Iraq after having withdrawn them in
2011, fulfilling a campaign promise. Still,
even the limited airstrikes against the
vicious insurgency show the president’s
conviction that the U.S. military cannot
remain dormant after having fought an
eight-year war that temporarily neutralized
Sunni extremists but failed to produce last-
ing peace.
U.S. military jets dropped food and water
to imperiled refugees in northwestern Iraq
and launched several airstrikes Friday on
isolated targets, including two mortar
positions and a vehicle convoy in north-
eastern Iraq, near the country’s Kurdish
capital of Irbil. Additional airdrops and tar-
geted strikes were thought likely. The next
move may be up to the Islamic State group,
the al-Qaida inspired extremists who have
chewed up Iraqi opposition so far.
About three dozen U.S. military trainers
and a U.S. consulate are in Irbil, where
Kurdish forces are fighting off a militant
advance. That’s no easy defense.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said of
the Islamic State group, “They are well
organized and they’re armed and they are a
significant threat to the stability of Iraq.”
Will there be further airstrikes? State
Department deputy spokeswoman Marie
Harf said the Islamic State group must at
least halt its advance on Irbil to prevent
further strikes.
Iraq has been pleading for months, if not
years, for additional U.S. military help to
combat the extremists, but the U.S. pulled
out of Iraq in part because it couldn’t reach
an agreement with the government on legal
immunity for U.S. troops. Harf said the
Obama administration acted now out of
concern that “there was a crisis that had the
potential to get much worse.”
U.S. officials said the Islamic State
extremists in recent days have shown mili-
tary skill, including using artillery in
sophisticated synchronization with other
heavy weapons. Their force had over-
whelmed not only Iraqi government troops
but also the outgunned Kurdish militia.
The Obama administration steadfastly
insists the airstrikes and humanitarian air-
drops are not the start of an open-ended
campaign to defeat the militants.
The president’s critics say his approach
is too narrow.
“Apolicy of containment will not work,”
Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham
said in a joint statement. They are among
the chief critics of Obama’s foreign policy
in general, beginning with his decision to
stick to the 2011 timetable set by
President George W. Bush for a full with-
drawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.
The Islamic militants are “inherently
expansionist and must be stopped,” the
senators said. “The longer we wait to act,
the worse this threat will become.”
Beyond airstrikes, the administration
has been asked to provide arms directly to
the Kurdish forces defending Irbil. Until
now, the U.S. has been willing to do that
only through the central government in
Baghdad, which has long feuded with the
semi-autonomous Kurdish government in
Iraq’s north.
Michael Barbero, a retired Army general
who ran the U.S. training mission in Iraq
from 2009 to 2011, said Baghdad never
delivered about $200 million worth of
American weapons that were designated for
the Kurds. Pentagon officials maintain
they can provide arms only to the Iraqi
government, although Harf said Friday the
Kurdish forces play a critical role in the cri-
sis.
“We understand their need for additional
arms and equipment and are working to pro-
vide those as well so they are reinforced,”
she said.
The CIA could supply the Kurds under a
covert operation. An agency spokesman
declined comment when asked whether that
was happening.
In announcing his decision to intervene
militarily, Obama stated plainly that he
would not allow the U.S. “to be dragged
into fighting another war in Iraq.”

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — After years of resisting
the pull of more Mideast conflicts, President
Barack Obama has sent the military back
into action in Iraq, where he once accused his
predecessor of waging a “dumb war.”
U.S. planes on Friday bombed Islamic mil-
itants who were towing artillery outside Irbil
near U.S. personnel, the Pentagon said.
The aggressive insurgency threatens to
undermine Obama’s legacy as the command-
er in chief who ended a long and unpopular
war in which nearly 4,500 American troops
died.
It also raises fresh questions about whether
Obama’s desire to end the war clouded his
assessment of the risks of fully withdrawing
U.S. troops, as well as his judgment about
the threat posed by the extremists.
Obama insisted the U.S. was not moving
toward a protracted conflict.
“I will not allow the United States to be
dragged into fighting another war in Iraq,” he
said late Thursday at the White House.
He also said the U.S. had completed air-
drops of humanitarian aid to Iraqi religious
minorities who are under siege.
The moves are, so far, more limited in
scope than the invasion undertaken by
President George W. Bush after the Sept. 11
attacks.
The chief rationale for Obama’s authoriza-
tion for military strikes in Iraq was to protect
American forces serving in Irbil. They
include some of the forces the president sent
in this summer to help train and assist Iraq’s
struggling security forces.
In trying to help Iraq protect civilians,
Obama said the U.S. has a responsibility to
stop imminent massacres. It’s an echo of the
argument he used when the U.S. joined
NATO’s bombing campaign in Libya in
2010.
Obama has not followed the same path in
Syria’s civil war, where more than 170,000
people have died.
The conditions that returned the U.S. to
military action in Iraq can be traced back
months — or years, as the president’s critics
contend.
As recently as January, Obama was dismis-
sive of the al-Qaida breakaway Islamic mili-
tants. In an interview with the New Yorker
magazine, he said comparing the group to
the terrorist network established by Osama
bin Laden was like comparing a junior varsi-
ty basketball team to an NBAsquad.
Yet U.S. intelligence and defense officials
were warning about the potential threat from
the Islamic State, which had strengthened in
Syria.
Obama’s comments reflected his limited
appetite for wading back into Iraq or starting
a military engagement in Syria, where he
authorized an air assault last summer but
never gave the order to go ahead.
Obama’s critics draw a direct connection
between that approach and his decision to
withdraw all American troops from Iraq in
late 2011. He did so in large part because
Iraq’s government refused to sign a security
agreement providing U.S. troops immunity.
But White House opponents say the presi-
dent should have pushed harder for a deal in
order to avoid the type of situation now
unfolding.
“We are already paying a very heavy price
for our inaction, and if we do not change
course, the costs of our inaction will only
grow,” said Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and
Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
They called on Obama to extend his
authorization of airstrikes against the
Islamic State beyond Iraq and into Syria.
The flurry of action comes as Obama’s
approval ratings have plummeted, and the
public’s opinion of his foreign policy
moves is lagging.
Iraq upheaval threatens Obama legacy
President interrupting
vacation with trip to D.C.
By Julie Pace and Darlene Superville
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is doing some-
thing unusual with his summer vacation on Martha’s
Vineyard: He’ll come back to Washington midway through
the getaway to attend White House meetings.
It’s an odd move, especially since Obama and his aides for
years have fended off questions about the timing of his vaca-
tions by arguing that he is president at all times and can do
the job wherever he is.
Obama planned to go ahead with the vacation even after the
first of the military airstrikes he authorized in northern Iraq
were carried out Friday.
He is scheduled to arrive on the wealthy island off the
Massachusetts coast on Saturday and return to Washington a
week later, on Sunday, Aug. 17. After the meetings, plans call
for Obama to return to the Vineyard on Aug. 19 to resume the
vacation, which ends five days later on Aug. 24.
Spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama would meet with staff,
but he declined to say who else would participate or what the
meetings are about.
“This is an opportunity for the president to do some in-per-
son meetings here at the White House, just for a day or two,
before he returns to Martha’s Vineyard,” Earnest said
Thursday.
Earnest sought to contain mounting speculation about the
vacation, saying the meetings aren’t related to “an emerging
situation.”
Still, there are many brewing issues that could require
Obama’s urgent attention, including fighting between Israel
and Hamas militants, Russia’s buildup of troops along its
border with Ukraine and the situation in Iraq, where a radical
Islamist group seeks to tighten its grip on Iraq’s north.
Even so, crises rarely have forced Obama to cancel a vaca-
tion. His advisers often appear to take pride in resisting calls
from Republicans for the president to return to Washington
or from fellow Democrats nervous about the appearance of
Obama either vacationing or tending to what some may con-
sider less urgent matters.
“He travels with an array of communications equipment and
national security advisers that will allow him to perform all
of the functions that are required of America’s commander in
chief,” Earnest said. “That’s true of any trip that he takes, and
it will be true of the trip that the president takes this week.”
In 2009, Obama remained on vacation in his native of
Hawaii after a man aboard a Detroit-bound flight tried to deto-
nate a bomb on Christmas. Obama also pressed on with
Martha’s Vineyard vacations in 2010 as rebels in Libya were
on the verge of ousting their government, and last year when
Egypt’s military overthrew the country’s first democratically
elected leader.
Just last month, Obama resisted calls while on a fundrais-
ing trip in Texas to visit the U.S.-Mexico border to witness
the surge of unaccompanied children arriving there.
Pressed about the appearance of ignoring a humanitarian
crisis, Earnest declared at the time: “We’re not worried about
those optics.”
Obama has upended his travel plans on several occasions.
He has canceled three trips to Asia, including one in 2013
because of the U.S. government shutdown. His late-December
departures to spend Christmas in Hawaii frequently have been
delayed because of late action on Capitol Hill. In 2012, he
returned to Washington from a Hawaiian vacation to deal with
“fiscal cliff” negotiations.
“I will not allow the
United States to be dragged
into fighting another war in Iraq.”
— Barack Obama

races are fresh as none of the June pri-
mary elections required a fall runoff.
For the San Mateo County Board of
Education, incumbents Susan Alvaro,
Beverly Gerard and Hector Camacho Jr.
are each running unopposed for their
respective trustee areas.
In the South San Francisco Unified
School District election, eight candi-
dates are vying for three spots.
Incumbent Philip Weise is seeking re-
election as is appointed incumbent
Patrick Lucy. The other six hopefuls
qualified are South San Francisco
Planning Commissioner Rick
Ochsenhirt, management analyst Rosa
Acosta, financial consultant Monica
Peregrina Boyd, state grant analyst
John Baker, community volunteer
Patricia “Pat” Murray and educator Sue
Olinger.
In Half Moon Bay, three are qualified
to run for three spots on the City
Council — incumbents Rick Kowalcyzk
and Allan Alifano and retired teacher
Don Prestosz. Incumbent Naomi
Patridge is not running for re-election.
Four will compete for three spots on
the Peninsula Health Care Board of
Directors. Incumbents Helen Galligan,
Lawrence Cappel and appointed incum-
bent Dennis Zell are running along with
accountant/auditor Douglas Radtke.
The Sequoia Healthcare District board
also has three seats up for grabs. Current
board President Jerry Shefren and
incumbents Art Faro and Jack Hickey
will be on the ballot alongside small
business owner John McDowell and
retired businessman Mark De Paula.
The San Mateo County Harbor
District Board of Commissioners has
two separate elections, one for a two-
year seat and another for two four-year
spots. Newcomers Robert Grant, a serv-
ice manager, Tomas Mattusch, a charter
boat captain and owner, square off with
appointed incumbent Will Holsinger for
the two-year spot.
For the two four-year positions,
incumbents Robert Bernardo and James
Tucker are opposed by marine biologist
Nicole David, property tax auditor
Shawn Mooney, business owner Brian
Rogers and business owner Kimberley
Collins.
The town of Hillsborough has incum-
bents Laurence May and Marie Chuang
running against Christy Lim for two
open seats. The Coastside Fire
Protection District has retired systems
analyst Bill Kehoe, small business
owner Bruce Mackimmie and teacher
Michael Clardy running for one open
seat.
Along with elected officials, voters
will also be asked to weigh in on sever-
al school measures.
The San Mateo County Community
College District is looking at a $388
million bond to modernize buildings
and update its labs and computer equip-
ment. The measure pencils out to $8.22
per $100,000 of assessed value.
The Belmont-Redwood Shores
Elementary School District hopes vot-
ers approve a $48 million facilities
expansion bond. If passed, property
owners would pay $19.98 per $100,000
in assessed value to add classrooms.
The Burlingame Elementary School
District measure on the November bal-
lot would consolidate and extend exist-
ing academic achievement parcel taxes.
One tax approved in 2010 levies $180
and expires June 30, 2021. The other
$76 tax expires June 30, 2016.
Together, they would be renewed for 14
years from July 1, 2016, for the com-
bined rate of $256 per parcel annually.
Half Moon Bay voters will consider
extending the city’s half-cent sales tax
measure to fund city services for three
more years. The proposal states that the
city is recovering but continue to suffer
from $3.5 million in budget cuts since
2008.
In San Bruno, the hot-ticket item on
the ballot is a measure asking to modify
existing city height limits to allow
buildings up to 90 feet near the Caltrain
station. Currently, the limit is 50 feet.
Proponents say doing so will allow
growth and development which has
been hampered by an ordinance that is
more than 30 years old.
For federal offices, Robin Chew is tak-
ing on incumbent Jackie Speier for the
14th District seat in the House of
Representatives and Richard B. Fox is
taking on incumbent Anna Eshoo for
the 18th District seat in the House of
Representatives. For state offices, Mark
Gilham is taking on incumbent Kevin
Mullin for the 19th District seat in the
Assembly and Diane Gabl is taking on
incumbent Rich Gordon for the 24th
District seat in the Assembly.
The filing deadline now begins the
10-day public review period.
Voter registration ends Oct. 20 and
Oct. 28 is the final date to request an
absentee ballot.

point.”
There are multiple offers on almost
every listing, Blanton said. In the sec-
ond quarter, there were 1,724 new list-
ings in San Mateo County for single-
family homes, according to the SAM-
CAR data.
“Having someone to package your
offer correctly is helpful,” he said.
“Homes are selling for several hundred
thousand dollars above the asking
price and there’s still quite a few all-
cash offers. It’s hard to compete
against all-cash offers; from the sell-
er’s standpoint, you don’t have to wait
for bank approval.”
Statewide, home prices are up as
well, but showing some signs of slow-
ing. This year, the median home price
is up 10 percent from 2009, while in
2013 it was up 27.5 percent from
2009, according to a June 2014
California Housing Market Forest by
the California Association of
Realtors. The housing supply shortage
also intensified in 2013, heightening
competition, resulting in bidding
wars. More than seven out of 10 home
sales received multiple offers in 2013,
the highest it’s been in 15 years,
according to the 2013 Annual Housing
Market Survey Report from the group.
In San Mateo County, the median
home price rose 9.6 percent between
April 2013 to April 2014, which is
actually slightly lower than the
statewide change of 11.6 percent.
Peninsula Realtors like Mary Ann
Teixeira, who sells homes from
Millbrae to Redwood City, noted that
it’s a very competitive market right
now.
“When I’m working with my buyers,
in a normal market, you construct an
offer that will be extremely attractive
to the seller,” she said. “In this mar-
ket, you’re writing the offer to com-
pete with other buyers.”
The whole process can be a bit of an
emotional roller coaster, she said. She
oftentimes finds herself counseling her
clients.
“The only people who this market is
good for is for sellers,” she said. “For
buyers, the market is moving so quick-
l y, you have to wonder ‘is everyone
really doing their due diligence?’
Buyers will waive all contingencies;
I’m a little concerned something
might come back to bite them later. ”

17 counts of armed robbery, in the
multi-city crime spree.
Each robbery charge carried 25 years
to life. In February, jurors deliberated
three days before convicting Sanders
of the robberies and also eight counts
of being a felon in possession of a
weapon, five counts of assault with a
firearm, seven counts of false impris-
onment, five counts of attempted rob-
bery, one count of making threats and
one count of mayhem.
Sanders has credit of 1,155 days
against the term and must serve 85 per-
cent of the remainder. Judge Cliff
Cretan also ordered Sanders to pay
$304,039 to the victim he shot for
reimbursement of mounting medical
expenses.
Sanders addressed the victim directly
during the sentencing hearing, telling
him “you can fix this” and
claiming “I’m a victim here,
too,” said District Attorney
Steve Wagstaffe.
Sanders robbed the
PetSmart at 3520 El Camino
Real in August 2011 and
returned Oct. 8, 2011, when
he shot the same 34-year-old
male cashier with a silver
revolver. The bullet severed
his femoral artery.
Sanders also allegedly
robbed or attempted to rob a
Beverages and More in
Colma, a GameStop in
Colma and other businesses
in San Francisco and Santa
Clara counties. Authorities
estimate he may have com-
mitted more than 30 similar
robberies throughout the
Bay Area. Authorities appre-
hended Sanders in Alameda
County. Fingerprints col-
lected from the Oct. 30,
2011, armed robbery of a San
Jose PetSmart linked him to
the local cases.

DILBERT® CROSSWORD PUZZLE
HOLY MOLE®
PEARLS BEFORE SWINE®
GET FUZZY®
SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 2014
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Make a move now. If
you are offered an interesting position, accept the
challenge it offers. You are overdue for some changes,
and this can be the first step.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Stay in control of a
situation that will influence your future. If you take action
quickly, you will receive positive results. Be secretive to
prevent others from meddling in your affairs.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Keep your opinions to
yourself. Others may be particularly disagreeable, so
work on something that you can do alone. Being drawn
into petty arguments will be a waste of time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Add some zest to your
life. The use of all your talents will lead you to a new
business venture. Keep working toward your goal, and
an amazing and profitable project will develop.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Avoid getting
involved in joint ventures. Your generosity will cause
problems. Control your spending, and keep tabs on
how much you have and how much you owe.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If you don’t want
to do something, don’t be afraid to say no. Have a
heart-to-heart talk with someone who is making life
difficult or uncertain. Trying to please others will be
emotionally and physically draining for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Unless you have the
relevant details, don’t feel that you have to make a
decision. It’s likely that someone is withholding the
information you need. Do your own fact-finding.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Meeting people is
easier if you participate in community activities and
events. If you follow your intuition, you will meet
someone who will lead you down an exciting new path.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Don’t be too ready
to offer details about your plans. Giving someone
personal facts or figures could set you up for a fall.
Guard your interests carefully.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Spend more time
doing things you enjoy. Downtime is just as
important as time spent working, especially when
it comes to mental health. Gather your friends and
have a good time with them.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Take a look at your
bank account, assets and valuable possessions.
You may have miscalculated expenses. Do away
with non-essential purchases until you can get your
finances sorted out.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Get all the facts.
Serious discussions should be postponed until you
feel ready and capable of acting responsibly. Legal or
governmental matters are best handled with facts to
back up your position.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO
ADMINISTER ESTATE OF
Robert P. Bauer, aka Robert Paul Ba-
uer, aka Robert Bauer, and Bob Bauer
Case Number: 124706
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, con-
tingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or es-
tate, or both, of: Robert P. Bauer, aka
Robert Paul Bauer, aka Robert Bauer,
and Bob Bauer. A Petition for Probate
has been filed by Elizabeth A. Bessemer
in the Superior Court of California, Coun-
ty of San Mateo. The Petition for Pro-
bate requests that Elizabeth A. Besse-
mer be appointed as personal represen-
tative to administer the estate of the de-
cedent.
The petition requests authority to admin-
ister the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This au-
thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an ob-
jection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
authority.
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: August 19, 2014 at
9:00 a.m., Dept. 28, Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo, 400
County Center, Redwood City, CA
94063.
If you object to the granting of the peti-
tion, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hear-
ing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent cred-
itor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representa-
tive, as defined in section 58(b) of the
California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal de-
livery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal au-
thority may affect your rights as a cred-
itor. You may want to consult with an at-
torney knowledgeable in California law.
203 Public Notices
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-
praisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special No-
tice form is available from the court clerk.
