A recently released report from
the Assemblys Select Committee
on Sea Level Rise and the
California Economy outlines nd-
ings and makes policy recommen-
dations that San Mateo County
ofcials hope will help them plan
for the future.

Assembl yman
Rich Gordon,

said hes hope-
ful the Legislatures rst report of
this kind will spread awareness and
encourage statewide coordination.
The seas are rising, we know
that, and scientists tell us theyre
going to continue to rise. We are
not at the beginning of the prob-
lem; were in the middle. And yet
we have not done any planning.
We havent done the adaptation
thats going to be necessary. So
Im hopeful that this report is in
some ways a wake-up call, an alarm
that calls us to action and gets the
state of California to begin to take
the steps that will be necessary to
adapt to sea level rise.
According to the report,
California is in the midst of a
slow-moving emergency and,
even if greenhouse gases are
reduced, it will experience three
feet of sea level rise by 2100. The
state is also susceptible to fre-
quent extreme storms and King
Tides and the report encourages
communities to adapt current and
future planning to climate change

Those affected by the invalida-
tion of hundreds of Advanced
Placement exams because of a seat-
ing mistake at Mills High School
in Millbrae were pleased by the
bills passage in the Assembly
Thursday but wish it was in place
before the struggle last year.
No legislation would adequate-
ly compensate the Mills students
and their parents for what they
experienced, but we hope it will
spare other students the same
fate, said Mills High School PTO
President Paul Seto in an email.
In May 2013, some students tak-
ing AP exams at Mills High
School were seated at round tables,
a violation of testing protocols.
After a student complaint prompt-
ed an investigation by Educational
Testing Service (ETS), College
Board, the tests publisher,
announced in July that it would
cancel 641 test scores. Nearly 300
students were allowed to retake the
tests in August.
That prompted outrage from stu-
dents who argued they were pun-
ished for the mistakes of adults.

test at the end of summer vacation,

Flashing beacons will begin to
be installed this week at a Foster
City intersection known for recent
pedestrian-related auto crashes
after the City Council rejected a
concerted neighborhood effort to
have stop signs placed there.
The intersection, at Port Royal
Avenue and Edgewater Boulevard,
was where a girl was struck by a car
earlier this year. The city is spend-
ing $66,000 to install six user-
activated rectangular rapid ash-
ing beacons at the unsignalized
intersection and diagonally
restripe the crosswalks, Director
of Public Works Brad Underwood
said. The signals will be placed on
both sides and in the center of the
two crosswalks across Edgewater
Boulevard, he added.
The beacons use amber LED
lights in an irregular ash pattern
similar to those on police vehicles
and are activated when a user push-
es a button, according to the city.
It could take two to three weeks
to complete installation, as it
requires underground wiring and
foundation work, Underwood said.
Edgewater Boulevard is one of
the citys busiest streets and the
Port Royal Avenue intersection
marks one of the most populated
areas in Foster City with churches,
a school, parks and a busy shop-
ping center nearby.
The intersection came under
public scrutiny after a slew of
pedestrian-related car accidents

Wanted: Repeat bank
robber with fondness for hats
MINEOLA, N.Y. Police in New
York are on the hunt for a prolic bank
robber who wears many hats.
Police say the man donned a range of
wacky headpieces as he committed
eight bank robberies in Nassau
County over the course of 2 1/2
months ending July 23.
One of the banks was robbed twice.
Surveillance photos show the rob-
ber wearing a oppy white hat at one
bank. At another, he accessorized with
a baseball hat that had a picture of
President Barack Obama on it.
And at another, he decided on a hat
with a long wig attached.
Police believe its the same robber
in all the photos.
They say the stickup artist typically
gives tellers a note threatening vio-
lence and demanding cash.
Soaked for charity:
Ice bucket challenges get cool
BOSTON The idea is simple: Take
a bucket of ice water, dump it over your
head, record it and post the video on
social media.
Its cold, its fun and its contagious.
But these ice bucket challenges and
similar social media-powered stunts
also are raising awareness and money
for causes such as Lou Gehrigs dis-
ease, breast cancer and a camp for kids
who have lost their fathers to war.
Martha Stewart has been doused. So
has Matt Lauer. And pro golfer Greg
The fundraising phenomenon asks
those willing to douse themselves to
challenge others to do the same within
24 hours. If they dont, they must
make a donation to a certain charity.
Each person who participates nomi-
nates more friends, who nominate
more friends, who nominate still more
friends, which explains why the trend
has exploded.
The months-old movement has
taken the Boston area by storm over
the last 10 days, since friends and rel-
atives of former Boston College base-
ball player Pete Frates used it to raise
awareness about Lou Gehrigs disease.
Frates was diagnosed with the neurode-
generative disease, also known as
ALS, in 2012. Frates, 29, is now para-
lyzed, eats through a feeding tube and
cannot talk.
On Thursday, his parents, Nancy and
John Frates, joined 200 people who
doused themselves in Copley Square.
The couple said the ice bucket chal-
lenge has done more to increase under-
standing about ALS than anything
theyve done over the past two years.
Who knew all it would take was a
bag of ice and a bucket? John Frates
told the crowd, just before participants
simultaneously poured 9-quart buckets
of ice water over their heads.
While most were wearing T-shirts or
other casual summer attire, City
Councilor Tito Jackson stood out in a
suit and tie, which promptly got soaked.
This is a little bit of discomfort for a
second, but its a lifetime of challenges
for people with ALS, Jackson said.
Similar challenges have attracted
athletes, politicians, doctors,
accountants and construction workers.
They can take all sorts of forms: There
are no-makeup seles to raise money
for cancer causes and cold-water
plunges for kids camps.
Lauer got soaked with ice water last
month after Norman challenged him
and ended up kicking in some cash for
the Hospice of Palm Beach County, in
Operation 300 is a foundation in
Stewart, Florida, that hosts a camp for
kids who lost their fathers to war.
Founded by the family of Navy SEAL
Aaron Vaughn, who was killed in a hel-
icopter crash three years ago, the
foundation gets support from local
reghters, one of whom decided to
put his money where his mouth was:
Pay $50 and avoid the icy dousing or
get wet and pay $20.
He just happened to call out ve
other local firemen, said Tara
Baldwin, Vaughns sister. When one
of them called the others out, they all
sort of naturally said they wanted to
get involved.
Since the spring, the foundation has
raised about $15,000 from the ice
water challenge.

very town has its unique history and
San Bruno is no exception. The
Spanish/Mexicans used the area of
San Bruno for grazing cattle and horses
from the mid-1700s until the Mission peri-
od in the mid-1800s. Its unique geology
with the hills to the west between the Pacic
Ocean and the at terrain along the San
Francisco Bay made it a natural corral in
which to let the cattle wander, eat and repro-
duce to produce more cattle.
Jose Antonio Sanchezs Mexican grant of
Rancho Buri Buri in the 1830s dened the
area a little more, but his attempt to put the
Rancho on a sound economic base was cut
short by his death in 1843. His heirs
thought differently about raising cattle and
proceeded to sell the land to speculators and
the rising class of European Americans who
settle here. The geography of San Bruno 14
miles to the south of San Franciscos
Mission Dolores and 40 miles north of the
Mission by San Jose did not encourage
many settlers to stop and build homes until

Criminal case suspended against
homeless man accused of murder
Criminal proceedings against a homeless
man accused of beating another man to
death in unincorporated Redwood City in
June were suspended Friday to determine if
the suspect is competent to stand trial, San
Mateo County District Attorney Steve
Wagstaffe said.
Paul Ahern, 53, is
accused of beating
Michael Gonzalez, 46,
to death during a ght at
about 8:15 p.m. on June
9 in the 3100 block of
Middleeld Road. Ahern
is charged with murder.
Witnesses told sher-
i ffs deputies that
Ahern yelled repeatedly
that he was going to kill Gonzalez,
slammed his head against the ground,
punched him in the head, slammed his
head into a car and held him in a choke-
hold for 10 minutes, according to prose-
When deputies arrived, Ahern was arrested
standing three feet from Gonzalez, who was
lying face-down on the sidewalk, prosecu-
tors said. Gonzalez was pronounced dead at
the scene.
Ahern was scheduled to enter a plea
Friday, but criminal proceedings were sus-
pended to determine whether he was mental-
ly competent to stand trial, Wagstaffe said.
He will return to court Tuesday for doctors to
be appointed.
Two suspects coerce man into
giving money in fake charity scheme
Two suspects who coerced a man into giv-
ing them money in South San Francisco on
Friday remain at large, according to police.
The victim was leaving a store in the 500
block of El Camino Real when he was
approached by one of the suspects, who
asked him where the nearest church was and
said he wanted help distributing money to
people in need.
The victim agreed to help distribute
money and drove the suspect to a church on
Southwood Drive.
When they arrived, the second suspect
involved in the scheme walked by and was
also asked by the rst suspect to help dis-
tribute money to the needy. The second sus-
pect agreed to help as well.
The rst suspect told both the victim and
the second suspect that they would receive
substantial nancial rewards if they helped
him give out money, but they both rst had
to bring him money as a show of trust.
The second suspect briefly left and
returned with an unknown amount of cash
for the rst suspect, while the victim went
to a bank and withdrew $1,100, which he
gave to the suspects.
The rst suspect then wrapped the vic-
tims money in a bandana with the roll of
money the victim was supposed to give
away to people in need.
When the victim returned to the bank to
deposit all the money, he found that his
money wasnt in the bandana and that the
other roll of money was shredded newspa-
The suspects ed the scene and werent
located, police said.
The two suspects are described as black
men in their 30s with black hair and brown
eyes. One is described as being ve feet
eight inches tall and the other is believed to
be about ve feet ten inches tall, according
to police.
Anyone with information about this inci-
dent is encouraged to call the South San

Animal shelters brace for unwanted
effects of new Ninja Turtles movie
Bay Area animal shelters are bracing for
what they fear may be an ill-advised rush to
acquire pet turtles and tortoises after the
box office success of the new
Teenage Mutant Ninja
Turtles movie.
Owning a pet takes planning, equipment,
food and commitment. Sadly, many people
do little research before acquiring a pet and
dont understand and commit to the respon-
sibilities of lifetime ownership, East Bay
SPCAPresident Allison Lindquist said.
We fear this movie will drive interest in
acquiring pet turtles and tortoises, she said.
The East Bay SPCAis reminding the pub-
lic that owning a turtle or tortoise is a major
Like other reptiles, turtles and tortoises
require specic food, supplements and habi-
tats in order to thrive.
New equipment must be purchased as the
animals outgrow their space, and the right
setup for a turtle or tortoise can be costly,
East Bay SPCAofcials said.
SPCA ofcials report that many reptiles
can live for decades and that tortoises can
even outlive their owners.
In addition, the public is advised to be
aware that some turtle and tortoise owners
illegally sell the animals and may sell ani-
mals with compromised health or turtles
carrying salmonella or other bacteria.

toises can be found at the Humane Society

Drafted by a suffragette in 1923,
the Equal Rights Amendment has
been stirring up controversy ever
since. Many opponents consid-
ered it dead when a 10-year ratica-
tion push failed in 1982, yet its
backers on Capitol Hill, in the
Illinois statehouse and elsewhere
are making clear this summer that
the ght is far from over.
In Washington, congresswomen
Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo., and
Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., are
prime sponsors of two pieces of
legislation aimed at getting the
amendment ratied. They recently
organized a pro-ERA rally, evok-
ing images of the 1970s, outside
the U.S. Supreme Court.
Recent Supreme Court deci-
sions have sent
womens rights
back to the
Stone Age,
said Speier,
explaining the
renewed inter-
est in the ERA.
The amend-
ment would
stipulate that
equal rights cannot be denied or
curtailed on the basis of gender.
Participants in the July 24 rally
directed much of their ire at the
Supreme Courts recent Hobby
Lobby ruling. In a 5-4 decision,
with the majority comprised of
five male justices, the court
allowed some private businesses
to opt out of the federal health care
laws requirement that contracep-
tion coverage be provided to
workers at no extra charge.
They could not have made the
Hobby Lobby ruling with an
ERA, Maloney said.
Meanwhile, in Illinois, battle
lines are being drawn for a likely
vote this fall in the state House of
Representatives on whether to rat-
ify the ERA. The state Senate
approved the ratication resolu-
tion on a 39-11 vote in May, and
backers hope for a similar out-
come in the House after the legis-
lature reconvenes in November.
If the amendment gets the
required three-fths support in the
House, Illinois would become the
36th state to ratify the ERA.
Thirty-eight states approval is
required to ratify an amendment
but the ERAs possible road to rat-
ication today is complicated by
its history.
The Illinois resolutions chief
sponsor in the Democrat-con-
trolled House, Deputy Majority
Leader Lou Lang who said he
was close to securing the 71 votes
needed for approval is motivat-
ed in part by Illinois role in the
ERA drama of the 1970s. Back
then, the legislatures failure to
ratify the amendment was a crucial
blow to the national campaign.
Illinois was the state that
killed it 40 years ago, Lang said,
calling that appalling and not-
ing that Illinois has an equal
rights amendment in its state con-
One of the leading opponents of
the ERA during the 1970s was
conservative Illinois lawyer
Phyllis Schlay, who launched a
campaign called Stop ERA and is
credited with helping mobilize
public opinion against the amend-
ment in some of the states that
balked at ratifying it.
Schlay, now 89, said activists
and politicians trying to revive
the ERA were beating a dead
They lost and they cant stand
it, she said in a telephone inter-
view. Theyre doing it to raise
money, to give people something
to do, to pretend that women are
being mistreated by society.
Schlays allies in Illinois are
gearing up to ght the amendment
in the House. The Illinois Family
Institute contends the ERA would
force women into military com-
bat, invalidate privacy protec-
tions for bathrooms and locker
rooms, undermine child support
judgments and jeopardize social
payments to widows.
90 years on, push for ERA ratification continues

LOS ANGELES Marlene Pinnock said
she thought she was going to die as a
California Highway Patrol ofcer straddled
her, repeatedly punching her head, on the
side of a Los Angeles freeway.
During an hour-long interview with The
Associated Press on Sunday her rst pub-
lic comments since the July 1 incident was
caught on now-viral video by a passing
driver Pinnock, 51, spoke haltingly or
in a whisper, occasionally putting her
hands to her temples and grimacing.
Her attorney Caree Harper frequently
interrupted her and limited her responses to
a reporters questions.
He grabbed me, he threw me down, he
started beating me, he beat me. I felt like he
was trying to kill me, beat me to death,
Pinnock said. Pinnock was released from
the hospital last week after several weeks of
treatment for head injuries and now slurs her
speech, Harper said.
Pinnock is suing CHP Commissioner Joe
Farrow and Ofcer Daniel L. Andrew in fed-
eral court for civil rights violations. The
suit claims excessive force, assault, battery
and a violation of Pinnocks due process
rights. The CHP hasnt identied the ofcer
but said he had been on the job for 1 1/2
years and is on desk duty pending comple-
tion of the internal investigation.
Farrow met with community and civil
rights leaders in Los Angeles multiple times
last month and pledged that the investiga-
tion will conclude in weeks rather than the
usual months. CHP Sgt. Melissa Hammond
said Sunday that she couldnt comment on
the ongoing investigation.
The CHP has said that Pinnock was endan-
gering herself by walking on Interstate 10
and the ofcer was trying to restrain her.
Pinnock said she had been homeless for
the last three to ve years, occasionally
staying at the Los Angeles Mission, a fami-
ly members home or on La Brea or
Pinnock said she had been on her way to a
safe place where friends could watch her sleep
when the altercation occurred. Harper said the
area Pinnock was headed to is one of those
frequented by the homeless and only accessi-
ble by walking along the freeway ramp.
She was placed on an involuntary psy-
chiatric hold by Andrew after the incident,
according to a document obtained by The
Associated Press. Andrew said in his report
that she was a danger to herself and wrote
that upon contacting the subject she was
talking to herself. The subject began
telling me I want to walk home and called
me the devil. The subject then tried to
walk into traffic lanes.

Weather may hamper wildfire

SAN FRANCISCO Unsettling weather,
including possible lightning strikes, may
add fuel to an already stubborn wildfire
threatening homes in a parched area of
Northern California, ofcials said Sunday.
Crews battling the lightning-sparked
blaze burning in steep, rugged terrain near
Laytonville in Mendocino County braced
for another round of dry lightning and wind,

Protection spokeswoman Lynne Tolmachoff
An evacuation order remains in effect as
the fast-moving re about 160 miles north
of San Francisco threatens nearly 60 struc-
tures across six communities, CalFire
spokesman Brandon Rodgers said Sunday.
Eleven firefighters have been injured,
including eight on Friday. All suffered minor
injuries or burns, ofcials said.
More than 2,000 reghters and a dozen
helicopters targeted the blaze that has
charred about 12 square miles and is partial-
ly contained.
While weve been making some
progress, this is a very stubborn fire,
Tolmachoff said. And were not even close
to our peak re season.
A red ag warning also was issued in the
area and the forecast called for a slight
chance of thunderstorms, said Jeff Tonkin, a
meteorologist with the National Weather
Service in Eureka.
The re is close to the bulls eye of where
the dry lightning may strike, Tonkin said.
After Monday, no rainfall is expected in the
area for the next seven to 10 days.

Democratic Unity Breakfast the
morning after the primary elec-
tion is traditionally a time for can-
didates to set aside their differ-
ences and coalesce against the
Republican candidates they will
face in November.
But the Sundays festivities were
awkward this year after the pri-
mary left the top-ticket U.S.
Senate race undecided and the sit-
ting governor was trounced by his
Democratic opponent.
Incumbent U.S. Sen. Brian
Schatz and U.S. Rep. Colleen
Hanabusa, the Senate candidates
who are separated by only a slim
vote margin, largely ignored one
another as they sat at neighboring
tables until they were nally forced
to acknowledge each other with a
hug in between their speeches to
about 200 party faithful.
This really is an extraordinary
moment in Democratic Party poli-
tics for so many reasons, Schatz
said. Colleen and I, in a very par-
ticular way, are not pau, he said,
using the Hawaiian word for done.
Hanabusa asked, Where else
would you have a situation like
this? I mean, look at this election.
Two hurricanes, we were down to
the wire.
The other election drama was
resolved Saturday night, when Gov.
Neil Abercrombie was resoundingly
defeated by a fellow Democrat and
onetime underdog who took on the
40-year politician. Abercrombie
pledged his full support to
Democratic gubernatorial nominee
David Ige and linked arms with him
onstage on election night.
The 76-year-old governor on
Sunday reiterated his intention to
help Democrats and reminisced
about his political career.
Choking up, he vowed: My every
breath until the last I take will be
for Hawaii.
As Democrats shifted their focus
to defeating Republicans in
November, the focus of the U.S.
Senate race shifts to a remote
region on the Big Island known as
Puna, where up to 8,255 registered
voters will be mailed ballots in
the next few days.
In an unprecedented move, elec-
tions ofcials postponed voting
in two precincts after Tropical
Storm Iselle hit the state this
week, damaging roads and down-
ing trees on the Big Island.
Exactly how the election will pro-
ceed was unclear to candidates
Sunday morning. The state faces a
21-day legal deadline.
As long as civil defense deems
the roads passable, they can start
campaigning today, said
Stephanie Ohigashi, chairwoman
of Hawaiis Democratic Party. It
will be a challenge to campaign in
the rugged volcanic region, where
many homesteaders are without
water and power, she said.
People are going to learn a lot
about that part of the state, said
former Gov. John Waihee. Its
made up of a lot of people who are
very independent ... they like
being country. They like where
they live.
Hawaii Democrats seek unity after dramatic races
By Julie Pace
WASHINGTON In making the
case for U.S. airstrikes in Iraq,
President Barack Obama is draw-
ing on the doctrine involving the
use of American force that he out-
lined less than three months ago,
when it seemed he was trying to
avoid potential U.S. military
action anywhere.
In a late May speech at the U.S.
Military Academy, Obama said he
would use military force under two
scenarios: a direct threat against
Americans or U.S. interests, and a
humanitarian crisis on a scale that
he said would stir the con-
On Thursday night, when Obama
announced that he had authorized
airstrikes and humanitarian air-
drops in Iraq, he argued that both
conditions were being met.
When the lives of American
citizens are at risk, we will take
action, Obama said. And when
many thousands of innocent civil-
ians are faced with the danger of
being wiped out and we have the
capacity to do something about
it, we will take action.
Two days later, he suggested the
U.S. engagement in Iraq will go
on for some time.
This is going to be a long-term
project, Obama said of achieving
the political climate in Iraq that
its leaders need to counter terror-
ist threats.
U.S. military jets have conduct-
ed several airstrikes on militant
targets near Iraqs Kurdish capital
of Irbil, home to a U.S. consulate
and about three dozen American
military trainers.
The military also has undertaken
airdrops of food and water for
Iraqis under siege from the Islamic
State group, and Obama has
authorized strikes if needed to pro-
tect the civilians. On Saturday,
U.S. jet ghters and drones con-
ducted four airstrikes on Islamic
State forces that were ring on
civilians taking shelter in the
Sinjar mountains, ofcials said. A
third airdrop of food followed the
The deteriorating situation
appears to fall within the parame-
ters for military action Obama
outlined. Yet the shift from a the-
oretical argument about using
force to actually doing just that
will test the scope and applica-
tion of Obamas policy.
Already Obama is facing the
question of why Iraqs besieged
religious minorities are worthy of
U.S. military support, but not
those in the civil war in Syria,
where 170,000 people have died.
In Iraq, a test of Obamas use of force doctrine
U.S. President Barack Obama gestures as he speaks to the media on the
situation in Iraq on the South Lawn of the White House. Obama said on
Saturday U.S. airstrikes have destroyed arms and equipment that Islamic
State insurgents could have used to attack Arbil, the Iraqi Kurdish capital,
but warned the current operation in Iraq could take some time.

CAIRO Israel and the Hamas militant
group accepted an Egyptian cease-re pro-
posal Sunday, clearing the way for the
resumption of talks on a long-term truce to
end a month of heavy ghting in the Gaza
Strip that has taken nearly 2,000 lives.
The announcement marked the second
time in less than a week that the bitter ene-
mies had agreed to Egyptian mediation. A
similar three-day truce last week collapsed
in renewed violence over the weekend.
The truce took effect at midnight (2101
GMT), preceded by heavy rocket re toward
Israel. In Cairo, the Egyptian Foreign
Ministry said the cease-re would allow
humanitarian aid into battered Gaza neigh-
borhoods and the reopening of indirect talks
on a more lasting and comprehensive deal.
Hamas is seeking an end to the Israeli-
Egyptian blockade against Gaza, while
Israel wants Hamas to dismantle its formi-
dable arsenal of rockets and other weapons.
Palestinian negotiators accepted the pro-
posal early Sunday after meeting with
Egyptian ofcials throughout the weekend.
Israeli ofcials concurred later. Both delega-
tions are back in Cairo.
Qais Abdelkarim, a member of the
Palestinian delegation, said indirect talks
with the Israelis would begin Monday with
the hope of reaching a lasting cease-re.
The goal, he added, was to end the blockade,
which he called the reason for the war.
The recent ghting has been the heaviest
between Israel and Hamas since Hamas took
control of Gaza in 2007. More than 1,900
Palestinians have been killed, including
hundreds of civilians. On the Israeli side, 67
people have been killed, including three
civilians. Nearly 10,000 people have been
wounded and thousands of homes destroyed.
The ghting ended in a three-day cease-
re last Tuesday. Egypt had hoped to use
that truce to mediate a long-term deal. But
when it expired, militants resumed their
rocket re, sparking Israeli reprisals. The
violence continued throughout the week-
end, including a burst of fighting late
Sunday ahead of the expected cease-re.
The Israeli military reported some 30
rocket attacks from Gaza on Sunday.
Palestinian medical officials said seven
people were killed in Israeli airstrikes,
including the bodyguard of a Hamas leader,
the medical ofcials said.
Israel had walked away from cease-re
talks over the weekend. Israel will not
negotiate under fire, Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu said earlier Sunday.

WASHINGTON The United States said
Sunday it fully supports Iraqs new presi-
dent, just hours after embattled Prime
Minister Nouri al-Maliki accused him of
violating the constitution.
The State Department responded after al-
Maliki accused Fouad Massoum, who was
named president last month, of neglecting
to name a prime minister from the countrys
largest parliamentary faction by Sundays
deadline. He said Massoum has violated the
constitution for the sake of political
State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki
said the U.S. rejects any effort to use coer-
cion or manipulation in the process of
choosing a new Iraqi leader. She said the
U.S. supports the process to select a prime
minister by building a national consensus
and governing in an inclusive manner.
Al-Malikis surprise speech late Sunday
plunged the government into a political cri-
sis at a time it is battling advances by
Islamic State militants. It was his first
speech on Iraqi TV since U.S. forces
launched airstrikes and humanitarian air-
drops in Iraq last week.
Al-Maliki is seeking a third-term as prime
minister, but the latest crisis has prompted
even his closest allies to call for his resig-
nation. A parliament session scheduled for
Monday to discuss the election and who
might lead the next Iraqi government was
postponed until Aug. 19.
President Barack Obama last week
approved limited airstrikes against Islamic
State fighters, whose rapid rise in June
plunged Iraq into its worst crisis since the
end of 2011, when U.S. troops withdrew
from the country at the end of an unpopular
eight-year war. Obama said the current mili-
tary campaign would be a long-term proj-
ect to protect civilians from the deadly and
brutal insurgents.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said
Sunday the militants threaten not just Iraqis
but also Americans. He said Obamas strikes
were insufcient to turn back the militants
and were designed to avoid a bad news story
on his watch.
I think of an American city in ames
because of the terrorists ability to operate in
Syria and in Iraq, said Graham, a reliable advo-
cate for using U.S. military force overseas.
The chairwoman of the Senate
Intelligence Committee, Sen. Dianne
Feinstein of California, D-Calif., also said
the militants pose a threat in our backyard
and were recruiting Westerners.

roadhouse developed, the San Bruno House, along the San
Bruno Toll Road (San Mateo Avenue) built in 1859. Richard
Cunningham, the owner, also anticipated the construction
of the latest form of rapid transit that was to be built down
the Peninsula the railroad. The San Bruno House attract-
ed many sportsmen and visitors for weekend trap-shooting,
horse races and relaxation, but the visitors did not stay to
develop a community. By the end of the 1880s, another
restaurant/hotel facility was erected August Jeneveins
Junction House.
Ten years later, the Tanforan Race Track was built north of
these roadhouses. The founder of the Bank of California,
Darius Ogden Mills, had by now acquired thousands of acres
of the Rancho Buri Buri land and he built a great estate in
the now Millbrae/Burlingame area. He developed a dairy
farm (east of Peninsula Hospital) and later rented land for
the construction of the San Francisco Airport. To the north
of San Bruno land was utilized by the Sneath family and
C. Silva for cattle and horse raising. A core area of San
Bruno was yet to be developed.
The state of California didnt have the money to build the
roads in the 1800s so they issued permits for individuals to
build roads and charge tolls for people to use them. The San
Bruno Toll Road, which was later named the San Mateo
Road, was one of these enterprises built by businessmen of
Redwood City. San Mateo Avenue became the second busi-
ness avenue in the city, but it attracted few buildings until
the 1920s.
San Bruno is a bedroom community. Businesses are
essentially service-oriented grocery stores, drug stores,
etc. that are small, personal and run by people who like
small communities. The main story of the area as it is told
through history deals with the people who settled here and
the small businesses that developed to service this unique
El Camino Real bisected the terrain between the western
hills and the water of the Bay, but this path played an
important part in the development of the Peninsula. The
Spanish and later the Mexicans used this dirt path exclu-
sively for travel between San Francisco and San Jose, but
after Californias admission to the Union in 1850, com-
mercial interests and structures were attracted to it. By the
early 1900s, when real estate developers began platting
land into 25-foot lots for housing sites, San Bruno began
developing as a rural community accessible to surrounding
communities by El Camino Real, the railroad, the #40
Trolley Line and the new machine on the scene, the auto-
mobile. The communitys response to the automobile was
slow, only a few auto shops and gas stations, but eventual-
ly the businesses realized it was here to stay and began
exploiting its appeal and usefulness.
Spurred on by the earthquake of 1906, more than 1,400
people moved onto the vacant landscape and the city was
incorporated by 1914.

of neglecting to name a prime

sake of political goals.

This attitude
represents a coup on the constitu-

country that is governed by a dem-

Maliki said. The deliberate viola-
tion of the constitution by the
president will have grave conse-
quences on the unity, the sover-
eignty, and the independence of
Iraq and the entry of the political
process into a dark tunnel.
The political inghting could
hamper efforts to stem advances
by Sunni militants who have
seized a large swath of northern
and western Iraq in recent weeks.
President Barack Obama warned
Americans on Saturday that the
new campaign to bring security in
Iraq requires military and political
changes and is going to be a
long-term project. Obama said
Iraqi security forces need to
revamp to effectively mount an
offensive, which requires a gov-
ernment in Baghdad that the Iraqi

dence in. Obama said Iraq needs a

Letters to the editor
By Art Kiesel
unicipalities within the
Association of Bay Area
Governments that includes
all jurisdictions in the nine Bay Area
counties are required to adopt an
updated Housing Element to their
General Plan.
ABAG periodical-
ly looks at the job
and population
growth within its
jurisdiction and
assesses the relat-
ed housing needs
for the increased
workforce. As part
of the assessment
come the requirements for affordable
housing which is allocated to the
individual jurisdictions.
The process requires the preparation
of a draft to be sent to the California
Department of Housing and
Community Development for a 60-day
review followed by responses to their
comments resulting in a certied
Housing Element. To have the Housing
Element last for a period of eight years,
we must have one adopted by Jan. 31,
2015. The consequences for the failure
of not making the Jan. 31 date is that
the Housing Element process must be
redone in four years instead of eight.
There are other benets to having a cer-
tied Housing Element in the form of
funding, that we have used for streets
and parks and for protection from some
legal challenges to an inadequate
Housing Element.
Part of the Housing Element address-
es affordable housing by categories
(very low, low, moderate and above-
moderate). For developers to include
affordable housing in their protable
projects, outside subsidies have been
required. With the dissolution of rede-
velopment agencies, subsidy funds
have been more difcult to come by
and as a result, creative funding
methodologies have been explored
and some are being implemented.
Much time has been spent, and
rightfully so, on affordable housing
issues. The need for affordable hous-
ing has been around for many years
with some success but more needs to
be done and the dissolution of rede-
velopment agencies by the state has
not helped.
We live in a housing market that
appears to be somewhat immune to
recessionary times as prices for hous-
ing for both purchase and rental/lease
continue to escalate at unheard of
rates. The dollar difference between
no-housing and housing continues to
widen, offering little to the middle
class. Those already in purchased
units continue to relish the benets of
increased property values while those
in rental units continue to see the
rents/leases rise with ownership get-
ting further and further out of their
grasp. For those looking to move
into the area, many nd difculty
qualifying for rental units and many
more are priced out of ownership. In
future years, will we see the demise of
the middle class when it comes to
home ownership? The fact that collec-
tively, we have little need for either
air conditioners or snow shovels is a
testament to our desirable temperate
climate. Is it possible that the
lifestyle we have become accustomed
is about to change?
The southern part of the Peninsula
has long been known as Silicon
Valley and that term has resonated
throughout the world. In recent years,
the Peninsula has had a growth pres-
ence in the biotech industry. These
industries have helped create the need
for a sustained venture capital indus-
try and have brought a level of pros-
perity to our beloved Peninsula.
Back in July and August of 2013, I
wrote about One Bay Area Plan, which
is ABAGs answer to reducing green-
house gases by focusing on higher
density housing reducing the need for
gas burning automobiles. Since we
are running out of buildable land, we
are redeveloping living quarters with
higher densities and fewer parking
accommodations. Housing will be
built within walking distance of
transportation corridors (El Camino
Real and Caltrain). Although the plan
presents some workable solutions, it
fails to address some impending traf-
c problems created by new workers
unable to nd affordable housing on
the Peninsula and so must live in the
East Bay and commute to the
Peninsula. Alook at the Highway
101/ State Route 92 interchange traf-
c during the morning and evening
commute hours has to be a prelude of
things to come.
Also, I pointed out then that the
plan did not adequately address the
requirement for water for the additional
housing as we are now scrambling to
solve our severe drought. In May and
June of this year, I wrote about some
of the water issues facing us and with
the eminent climate change, can we
truly expect business as usual? Will
incubator businesses continue to start
up on the Peninsula with the high cost
of housing and perhaps building or
expansion moratoriums? Is it possible
that new business will look to less
costly locations to start up?
These are difcult questions to
answer, but if we do not recognize and
ask the questions now, we may not
look for answers until it is too late.

More famous grads
n response to my July 28 column, a number of
readers mentioned several local famous alums to
add to the list. Patricia Lescroart Barile graduated
from Notre Dame High School in Belmont, class of
1965. She remembers Merv Griffin (San Mateo High
grad) singing in the choir at St. Matthews Catholic
Church. He also sang Ave Maria at the wedding of her
in-laws. He was mentioned in my column but not her
brother, John Lescroart (Serra Class of 1966). He was a
good friend of another famous Serra grad, Bill Keller.
Brother John was a highly respected and nationally
renowned New York Times
best-selling author with
some 24 mystery/court-
room drama books to his
Rob Gibsons letter was
printed in the July 30 edi-
tion of the Daily Journal
about another famous
Serra grad, Pat Herren,
72. In case you missed it,
Herren was the first
American to win a
European Grand Prix for
motorcycle racing.
Lee Osborne, San Mateo
High, 44, sent me too
long a list of some of the
prominent people in his high school class to print
here. But here are some of the highlights: Dean
Mawdsley, well-known Peninsula surgeon; Conrad
Lawrence Hall (son of James Norman Hall, a co-author
of Mutiny on the Mounty). Connie, as we called him,
left San Mateo for the big time in Hollywood. There
Connie became a cinematographer and over the years
garnered many prizes for his work. But the frosting
came when he was awarded Academy Awards for Butch
Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, American Beauty and
Road to Perdition.
San Mateo High is one of the oldest high schools in
the area so is bound to have a long list of illustrious
grads. Here are a few more: George Archer, 58, won
golf masters 1969; Kathy Baker, 68, actress; Barry
Bostwick, 63, actor; Charles Ginnever, 49, artist;
Phil Goldman, 82, co-founder of WebTV; Dennis
Haysbert, 72, actor; Bob Murphy, 49, voice of
Stanford athletics; Bill Neukom, 59, former San
Francisco Giants managing general partner; Debi
Thomas, 88, Olympic bronze metal figure skater; Cal
Tjader, 43, anglo latin jazz musician.
Hillsdale High School famous alumni also include
Nick Vanos, former NBA player with the Phoenix Suns;
Bill Hardwick, Bowling Hall of Fame; and Thomas
Schumacher, theatrical producer. Aragons list also
includes Neal Schon, guitarist for Santana and Journey;
Robert Bazell, chief NBC science and health corre-
spondent; Manase Tonga, NFL free agent; Eddie
Williams, NFL free agent; Linda Bilmes, Harvard pro-
fessor at Kennedy School of Business; and Justin
Christian, most recently with the Tampa Bay Rays
Serra has such a long list of famous athletes, it would
take a column to pay tribute to each of them. But here
are the names of some other famous grads in other
fields: Dana Gioia, former chairman of the National
Endowment for the Arts; William Melville, founder
Mayfair plastic; John Shields, retired president and
CEO of Trader Joes; Michael Shrieve, drummer for
Santana; Michael Trucco, actor; and Terrence Quates,
R&B recording artist.
If you dont see a name which you feel belongs on
the list, I can understand your dismay. Some famous
relatives in my family didnt make it either.
The Rotary Club of San Mateo is looking for past
recipients of scholarships from the club to determine
where the recipients are now. Over the last 25 years,
the club has awarded over $1 million in scholarship
money to high school students unable to afford college
on their own. We believe many of the people our club
has helped have gone on to great careers. We also
believe many have made it a point to give back and
help others. Wed love to know their stories and get
back in touch, said Sheila Canzian, the clubs presi-
dent for 2014-15. If you have any information about
past recipients of San Mateo Rotary community col-
lege and four-year college scholarships contact the San

WASHINGTON Caterpillar has evacuated
a handful of employees from Liberia.
Canadian Overseas Petroleum Ltd. has sus-
pended a drilling project. British Airways has
canceled ights to the region. ExxonMobil
and Chevron are waiting to see whether
health ofcials can contain the danger.
The Ebola outbreak, which has claimed
nearly 1,000 lives, is disrupting business
and inicting economic damage in the three
African countries at the center of the crisis:
Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. So far,
analysts say the crisis doesnt threaten the
broader African or global economies.
We must make sure it is controlled and
contained as quickly as possible, said
Olusegun Aganga, trade minister in Nigeria,
which has conrmed nine cases of Ebola.
Once that is done, I dont think it will have
a lasting impact on the economy.
The World Health Organization on Friday
declared the outbreak an international pub-
lic health emergency. The WHO didnt rec-
ommend any travel or trade bans. But it cau-
tioned anyone who had had close contact
with Ebola patients to avoid international
travel and urged exit screenings at interna-
tional airports and border crossings.
When you have a widespread outbreak of
Ebola, you can end up with a panic, said
John Campbell, senior fellow for Africa
studies at the Council on Foreign
Relations. People wont go to work.
Expatriates will leave. Economic activity
will slow. Fields wont get planted.
The World Bank estimates that the out-
break will shrink economic growth in
Guinea, where the crisis emerged in March,
from 4.5 percent to 3.5 percent this year.
Ama Egyaba Baidu-Forson, an economist
at IHS Global Insight who focuses on sub-
Saharan Africa, is cutting her forecasts for
growth this year in Liberia and Sierra
Leone. She warned that prices would rise as
food and other staples become scarce and
that the regions already fragile govern-
ments would run up big budget decits in
ghting Ebola.
Baidu-Forson says the countries hit by
Ebola ultimately could require nancial help
from the International Monetary Fund.
In the meantime, multinational compa-
nies that do business in the resource-rich
region are scrambling to respond to the cri-
sis. Among them:
Heavy equipment manufacturer
Caterpillar Inc., based in Peoria, Illinois,
has evacuated less than 10 people from
Liberia, company spokeswoman Barbara
Cox said by email. In a statement,
Caterpillar said: The health and safety of
our people is our top priority.... We will
continue to monitor the situation closely.
British Airways has announced that
its suspending ights to and from Liberia
and Sierra Leone through Aug. 31 due to
the deteriorating public health situation in
both countries.
Tawana Resources, an Australian iron-
ore company, said it had suspended all
non-essential field activities within
Liberia and sent all non-essential African
workers, expatriates and contractors home.
London-based mining company
African Minerals has begun imposing
health checks and travel restrictions on
employees in the region.
Canadian Overseas Petroleum, based in
Calgary, has stopped drilling in Liberia.
And some of its expatriate employees have
left the country.

WASHINGTON The much-debated
Keystone XL pipeline could produce four
times more global warming pollution than
the State Department calculated earlier this
year, a new study concludes.
The U.S. estimates didnt take into
account that the added oil from the pipeline
would drop prices by about $3 a barrel,
spurring consumption that would create
more pollution, the researchers said.
Outside experts not connected to the study
gave it mixed reviews. The American
Petroleum Institute found the study to be
irrelevant because regardless of the
pipeline, the tar sands will be developed and
oil will be shipped by railroad if not by
pipeline, spokeswoman Sabrina Fang said.
The researchers estimate that the pro-
posed pipeline, which would carry oil from
tar sands in western Canada to reneries on
the Texas Gulf Coast, would increase world
greenhouse gas emissions by as much as
121 million tons of carbon dioxide a year.
The department said this year that at most,
the pipeline would increase world carbon
dioxide emissions by 30 million tons.
Such emissions have been on the mind of
President Barack Obama, who has said his
administration would allow the pipeline to
be built only if this project does not sig-
nicantly exacerbate the problem of carbon
The new estimates, from scientists at the
Stockholm Environment Institute, were
published Sunday by the journal Nature
Climate Change. Peter Erickson, lead
author, said his work implies that the
pipeline could basically wipe out reductions
from some potential pollution-cutting poli-
cies under discussion.
The State Department declined to com-
ment on the research by Erickson and co-
author Michael Lazarus.
Lower prices may sound good, but theres
no free lunch, said Wesleyan University
environmental economist Gary Yohe, who
praised the work.
Lower fuel prices are bad if they dont
include all of the social costs, Yohe wrote
in an email. Consumers are happy, but the
planet is not necessarily.
An increase of 121 million tons of carbon
dioxide is dwarfed by the 36 billion tons of
carbon dioxide the world pumped into the
air in 2013. Thats why University of
Sussex economist Richard Tol dismissed the
calculated Keystone effect as merely a drop
in the bucket. If somebody is concerned
about climate change, he wrote in an email,
the pipeline should be the furthest from
your mind.
Ken Caldeira of the Carnegie Institution of
Washington agreed the amount is small, but
said the concern is more about the idea of
boosting emissions than the degree of change.
Independent energy economist Judith
Dwarkin in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, dis-
missed the study, faulting the idea that added
oil production will lower the price and boost
demand. Usually, she said, its consumption
that spurs price and then oil production.
New study: Keystone carbon
pollution more than predicted

NEW YORK Companies that run New
York Citys growing armada of double-deck-
er sightseeing buses, like the ones involved
in last weeks Times Square crash, have no
legal obligation to report accidents to the
city agency that licenses them.
The Consumer Affairs Department one
of at least ve entities involved in regulat-
ing the brightly colored behemoths dis-
closed the loophole with The Associated
Press as scrutiny of the buses intensied
following the crash that injured 14 people
Spokeswoman Abby Lootens said city
law does not require companies to report
accidents to the department.
An aide to City Council transportation
chairman Ydanis Rodriguez called the news
troubling and said they would look into
remedying it. This week Rodriguez pro-
posed revoking city-issued licenses from
companies whose drivers rack up multiple
The lack of mandatory accident reporting
is one of several critical gaps in the amal-
gam of agencies governing the citys
booming sightseeing bus industry.
The police department, for one, lumps all
buses in the same category on accident
reports that go to state agencies involved in
licensing drivers and inspecting the vehicles.
The state Transportation Department ana-
lyzes the reports but cannot quantify their
accidents because of the broad categoriza-
tion, spokesman Beau Duffy said.
The Transportation Department posts
safety reports on its website, but those only
convey inspection results.
Gray Line, the citys largest sightseeing
company, had 11 percent of its 80 buses
sidelined for mandatory repairs last year,
Duffy said. One of its buses was involved in
the Times Square crash.
Duffy said a rate of 20 to 25 percent would
be cause for concern.
Other types of buses have different over-
sight and reporting requirements enabling
the government to track their accidents,
transportation ofcials said.
Because the city does not require the infor-
mation, Consumer Affairs does not consider
accidents when renewing a sightseeing
companys license.
The department, set up primarily to police
poor business practices, had already moved
to revoke New York Apple Tours license on
that basis in 2000 when a company bus
killed an actor near Times Square, and its
final ruling came only after the state
stripped the company of its bus registra-
These holes in the regulatory system
obscure the truest picture of the operational
and safety history of the 263 double-decker
buses up from 57 a decade ago dawdling
along the citys most congested avenues.
The legal loophole and the polices
imprecise records deprive the public of an
important metric and leave companies with-
out ofcial numbers to back up their claims
of high safety and few accidents.
Harris Schechtman, the director of transit
planning for the consulting firm Sam
Schwartz Engineering, said the division of
oversight responsibilities made sense
because they are independent spheres.
As long as theyre being administered
properly, the system works, he said.
Would it be nice to have one-stop shop-
ping? Maybe.
Aspokesman for Twin America, owner of
the companies in the Times Square crash, did
not return a message.
Franci Swanson, visiting from
Connecticut with her daughter, said the crash
made them rethink a double-decker tour.
It shook me up, Swanson said. Im a
little freaked out.
Police initially said a driver failed a eld
sobriety test, but prosecutors said screen-
ings were negative and they were waiting
for a full toxicology report to decide on
The crash came amid a boom in the sight-
seeing business.
More buses than ever are shuttling
tourists and more companies 15, up from
8 in 2005 are in on the action, Lootens
Visitors have hailed them as a convenient
way to see landmarks. Locals decry them as
a nuisance.
The Times Square Alliance, representing
business and tourism interests, said it was
concerned about the proliferation of buses
hampering pedestrian and vehicular trafc
in the bustling crossroads of the world.
Last weeks crash also highlighted a regu-
latory divide crossing state lines.
Driver William Dalamberts license was
issued in New Jersey. His record included 20
suspensions for administrative and insur-
ance issues but his license was valid at
the time of the crash and he was not required
to obtain one from New York.

the midst of a season-ending
defeat, Pacica American played
baseball the way the game is
meant to be played.
Nevada state-champion
Mountain Ridge eliminated
Pacifica from the Little League
Baseball West Regional playoffs
with an 11-2 victory in Saturdays
championship showdown at Al
Houghton Stadium in San
Bernardino. It is a historic win, as
Mountain Ridge becomes the rst
team in Nevada history to advance
to the Little League World Series.
But after Mountain Ridge capped
the nights scoring in the sixth
inning on a booming solo home
run by cleanup hitter Bradley
Stone, Pacica demonstrated the
sheer love of the game which
brought them within six innings
of a trip to Williamsport,
With one on and one out in the
sixth, Mountain Ridge was threat-
ening to mount another rally when
Pacifica relief pitcher Chris
Rodriguez induced a potential dou-
ble-play grounder to second base.
With the ball hit softly, Pacica
second baseman Tyler Shaw hur-
ried an underhand feed to shortstop
Christian Falk. As Falk galloped
over the bag, he took the throw
barehanded and red to rst base in
an attempt to complete the twin
But something of a boyish grin
rose to the surface of the short-
stops face with his team cer-
tain defeat amid an 11-2 rout,
while knowing it would be the
nal inning of their fairytale sea-
son and in that moment
Christian Falk exuded the simple
joy of playing the game.
Pacica did not turn the double
play. His throw sailed wide, just
beyond the outstretched glove of
first baseman Andrew Harkness.
Pacificas season concluded on
that kind of night, where the little
things didnt go their way.
Meanwhile, the little things bene-
tted Mountain Ridge, and they
took advantage by turning the sum
into an early, insurmountable lead.
Since District 52 play opened on
June 28, Pacica posted a 14-4
record. All four of the teams loses
came in the West Regional tourna-
ment, which began Aug. 1. Still,

paradise of the West Regional

Rory McIlroy, the No. 1 golfer in the world, rallied from a two-shot decit to win the PGA
Championship and the Wannamaker Cup. McIlroy also won last months British Open.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. The challenge nally
arrived for Rory McIlroy, and he was better than
ever to win the PGAChampionship.
On a back nine lled with as much tension as
a major can provide, McIlroy emerged from a
four-man battle with awless golf to outlast Phil
Mickelson and the darkness Sunday at Valhalla
and capture his second straight major.
McIlroy closed with a 3-under 68 and became
only the fourth player in the last century of golf
to win four majors at 25 or younger. The others
were Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Bobby
Jones, three of the games greatest players.
Boy Wonder appears on his way to belonging
in that group.
I didnt think in my wildest dreams Id have a
summer like this, said McIlroy, only the sev-
enth player to win the last two majors of the
year. I played the best golf of my life. I really
gutted it out today.
But one of the greatest shows on soggy turf
came with a most peculiar ending.
McIlroy hit a 9-iron from a fairway bunker on
the 17th hole to 10 feet and made the birdie putt
to take a two-shot lead to the par-5 18th.
Because of a two-hour rain delay, darkness was
falling quickly and it wasnt certain McIlroy
would be able to nish.
He was allowed to tee off even before
Mickelson and Rickie Fowler had reached their
golf balls in the fairway. Both were only two
shots behind and still in the game. McIlroy
came within a yard of hitting into a hazard right
of the fairway. Mickelson and Fowler had to
stand to the side of the green to allow McIlroy to
play his second shot.
The 25-year-old from Northern Ireland hit into
a bunker and had to two-putt from 35 feet for a
one-shot win.
Moments earlier, Mickelson came within
inches of chipping in for eagle. He settled for a
6-under 66 and a runner-up for the ninth time in
a major. Fowler, the rst player in history to n-
ish in the top ve at all four majors without win-
ning, also had a chance with a long eagle putt.
He missed badly, and then missed the short
birdie putt.
Fowler closed with a 68 and tied for third with
Henrik Stenson, who also had a share of the lead
until missing a 3-foot par putt on the 14th putt.
He never recovered from that and shot 66.

LONG BEACH There was plenty of
green-and-gold in Southern California over
the weekend.
There was the green-and-gold of the
Pacifica American 12-year-old All-Stars,
which advanced to the championship game
of the Little League West Regional playoffs
in San Bernardino. Meanwhile, on the coast
in Long Beach, the Area Code Games were a
major draw for a barrage of professional
The weeklong showcase of eight national
teams totaling approximately 250 of the
nations best high school prospects includ-
ed three San Mateo County players, all of
whom donned the green-and-gold of the
Oakland Athletics Area Code squad. The trio
included Serra leadoff hitter Chris
Papapietro and Burlingame slugger
Jonathan Engelmann.
It was Menlo-Atherton pitcher Matt
McGarry, however, who stole the show
Saturday for the As, as the right-hander got
the starting nod in the showcase nale.
I thought I did pretty well, McGarry
said. I threw strikes. I felt pretty good out
there. It was nice and easy.
McGarry dazzled through two innings of
work, and punctuated his outing in style.
With a runner on rst and one out, the hard-
throwing prospect bound for Vanderbilt in
2015 bore a tailing fastball on the hands of
the nal Yankees batter he faced to induce a
tailor-made double play; and he even made
some travelling music by breaking a bat in
the process.
Oakland As area scout Jermaine Clark was
among the many scouts impressed with
McGarrys performance. Clark the fourth-
year manager of the Area Code As turned
to McGarry in the clutch Saturday, after the
teams previously scheduled starter was
scratched just hours prior to the game.
Just how quickly [McGarry] can adjust
and come out and throw well in such a big
event; not every youngster can not know
hes starting before he gets here, gets to
start, and ends up throwing well, Clark

MILWAUKEE Clayton Kershaw has set the bar so high
for himself that a six-hit outing over eight innings qualies
as a subpar effort for the two-time Cy Young Award winner.
The Los Angeles Dodgers ace walked two and allowed
leadoff hitters to reach base in four of his rst ve innings
but still came away with his 11th straight victory in a 5-1
win Sunday over the Milwaukee Brewers. He struck out six,
nearly ve below his average per nine innings.
This equates to struggling for Kershaw.
It was a struggle for him all day long. It felt like he was
working hard but he kept battling and giving us chances,
manager Don Mattingly said.
Nevertheless, Kershaw (14-2) lowered his league-leading
ERA to 1.78 and tied for the NL lead in victories. Adrian
Gonzalez drove in two runs and scored the go-ahead run in
the fth off Jimmy Nelson (2-3), and the Dodgers avoided a
three-game sweep in a matchup of divisional leaders.
It was a good one for us to bounce back and hopefully it
gets us going in the right direction again, Mattingly said.
Kershaw also reached base three times and had an RBI sin-
gle in the eighth. On the mound, Kershaw beneted from
base-running blunders and aggressive play by the Brewers
that went awry.
Its fun to feel like a baseball player every once in a
while, Kershaw said. We get labeled as pitchers only
sometimes so its fun to get some dirt on your jersey every
once in a while.
In the third, Nelson wasted his leadoff double after getting
tagged out trying to advance from second on a grounder by
Carlos Gomez. Later, Gomez was picked off rst.
Rickie Weeks hit a leadoff double in fth. Two batters
later, Jean Segura popped up a squeeze attempt caught by a
charging Kershaw in front of the plate. He threw to third to
easily double off Weeks.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Tim Lincecum got
off to a slow start and never recovered. Its
turning into a disturbing trend for the San
Francisco Giants.
Lincecum was knocked out in the fourth
inning and the Giants went on to a 7-4 loss
to the Royals on Sunday. While Kansas City
is challenging Detroit for the AL Central
lead, San Francisco has lost four in a row
and ve of six.
Lincecum, a two-time Cy Young Award
winner, was charged with six runs and seven
hits in 3 1-3 innings. Four of the runs came
in the rst, including Alex Gordons two-run
It was an uphill climb after the start we
got off to, Giants manager Bruce Bochy
said. It was Lincecums command. He was
all over the board. When he threw a strike or
threw an off-speed pitch it was up. He
regrouped, but its tough when you get down
four runs.
Lincecum (9-8) was yanked after 73 pitch-
es. He has lasted 4 1-3 innings or fewer in
three of his last four starts.
You just see how far you can go to give
your team a chance to ght back and get in
the game, Lincecum said about the four-run
Lincecum, who pitched a no-hitter against
San Diego on June 25, is winless since July
11. He has a 10.59 ERA in his past four
starts, giving up 20 runs and 28 hits in 17
The Royals had ve of their seven steals
when Lincecum was on the mound.
I just didnt do a good
job of managing the
baserunners, Lincecum
said. Next time I have to
do a better job of being
cognizant of the runners
on base. I didnt execute a
lot of pitches, especially
with runners on base.
Thats my responsibili-
t y. Its under my con-
Rookie catcher Andrew Susac also accept-
ed some of the blame for the Royals stolen
I had a lot of trouble gripping the ball,
Susac said. Im sweating and Im looking
out at him (Lincecum) and hes sweating.
The ball gets slippery. You try to gure out
a way to stop the sweating. From my per-
spective, your hands are so freaking wet
that you cant grip the ball.
Salvador Perez also homered and Danny
Duffy pitched into the seventh inning as the
Royals earned their seventh consecutive
Kansas City, which won 10 in a row in
June, has put together two winning streaks
of seven or more games this season for the
rst time since 1985, the last time it was in
the playoffs.
Perez homered off Juan Gutierrez with
Nori Aoki aboard in a three-run fourth. Aoki
reached base four times two walks and
two singles and stole three bases.
Jarrod Dyson went 3 for 3 and also swiped
three bases. The Royals seven steals were
one shy of the club record set on Aug. 1,
Duffy (7-10) allowed four runs and three
hits in 6 2-3 innings in winning back-to-
back starts for the rst time this season. He
walked two in the seventh and both scored
on Susacs double.
Wade Davis pitched a scoreless eighth and
Greg Holland worked out of a bases-loaded
jam in the ninth while picking up his

Stewart during a race in upstate New York.
Greg Zipadelli, competition director for
Stewart-Haas Racing, said at a news confer-
ence that Stewart feels strongly about not
competing Sunday following the death of
Kevin Ward, Jr. The decision was an about-
face for the organization, which initially
said Stewart would be behind the wheel of
his No. 14 Chevrolet when the green ag
We gave Tony some time to sleep on it.
He feels strongly this is the right thing to
do, Zipadelli said. All you can do is what
you feel is right, and we feel this is right. We
get through today and do it the best we can as
a group.
In a statement, Stewart said the crash has
been emotional for all involved.
There arent words to describe the sadness
I feel about the accident that took the life of
Kevin Ward Jr., he said.
The crash happened
Saturday night at
Canandaigua Motorsports
Park, a dirt track and an
extracurricular race for a
driver of Stewarts stature.
Stewart frequently races
in the events as a hobby
to the side of the big-
money NASCAR races.
Ward, a 20-year-old driver, had crashed fol-
lowing a bump with Stewart one lap earlier.
Ward and Stewart were racing side-by-side
for position as they exited a turn. Ward was
on the outside when Stewart, on the bottom,
seemed to slide toward Wards car and crowd
him toward the wall. The rear tire of
Stewarts car appeared to clip the front tire of
Wards car, and Ward spun into the fence.
Video showed Ward walking from his
crashed car onto the racing surface as cars
circled by, and, as he gestured at Stewarts
passing car, he was struck. Ward was stand-
ing to the right of Stewarts familiar No. 14
car, which seemed to kick out from the rear
and hit him.
The next thing I could see, I didnt see
(the other driver) anymore, witness
Michael Messerly said. It just seemed like
he was suddenly gone.
Authorities questioned Stewart once on
Saturday night and went to Watkins Glen to
talk to him again Sunday. They described
him as visibly shaken after the crash and
said he was cooperative.
On Sunday, Ontario County Sheriff Philip
Povero said that criminal charges have not
been ruled out, but that investigators also
dont have any evidence at this point in the
investigation to support criminal intent.
Stewart is free to go about his business,
Povero said.
The sheriff renewed a plea for spectators to
turn over photos and videos of the crash. He
said cars on the track were traveling around
30-35 mph at the time Ward was struck.
Investigators were reconstructing the acci-
dent and looking into everything from the
dim lighting on a portion of the track to
how muddy it was, as well as if the dark re-
suit Ward was wearing played a role in his
Getting out of a wrecked car to confront
another driver is common in almost every
series. Wrecked race cars can rarely be driven
off the track, and the driver has to get out to
nd his way back to either the pits or the
garage. It creates ample opportunity for
angry confrontations.
Stewart has had a few of his own, and
everyone from mild-mannered Jeff Gordon
to ladylike Danica Patrick has erupted in
anger on the track at another driver. The con-
frontations are part of the sports culture:
Fans love it and cheer wildly from the
stands. They love the bumping, the banging
and the bickering.
Driver Cory Sparks, a friend of Wards ,
was driving in Saturday nights race and was
a few cars back when Ward was killed.
The timing was unsafe, he said of Wards
decision to get out of his car to confront
Stewart. When your adrenaline is going,
and youre taken out of a race, your emotions
The crash Saturday came almost exactly a
year after Stewart suffered a compound frac-
ture to his right leg in a sprint car race in
Iowa. The injury cost him the second half of
the NASCAR season. Stewart only returned
to sprint track racing last month, and won in
his return, at Tri-City Motor Speedway in

journey is almost complete.
With a new contract, sponsor extensions
and a solid one-car team at JTG Daugherty
Racing, Allmendinger became a winner in
Sprint Cup for the rst time on a somber
Sunday, outdueling Marcos Ambrose in the
nal two laps at Watkins Glen International.
I dreamed about this moment and Im not
going to forget it, said Allmendinger, making
his 213th Cup start. Its just a dream come
The day began on a
solemn note when three-
time Cup champion Tony
Stewart pulled out of the
race 12 hours after he
struck and killed 20-year-
old sprint car driver Kevin
Ward Jr. in a race after Ward
climbed from his car on a
small dirt track in nearby
Regan Smith drove
Stewarts car and nished 37th after having to
start from the back of the 43-car eld and get-
ting caught in a late accident.
Allmendingers life changed two years ago
in the hours before the July race at Daytona
International Speedway. NASCAR ofcials
had just kicked him out of the track, suspend-
ing Allmendinger indenitely for failing a ran-
dom drug test.
The failed drug test sidelined him for more
than three months and cost him his job with
Penske Racing. It also spurred much soul
searching, and after a handful of one-off Cup
rides he eventually landed a full-time Cup ride
last August with JTG Daugherty Racing.
To break through the way Allmendinger did
only added to the lore of this race, which has
been decided four straight times by fender-
banging dashes to the checkered ag. Ambrose
won two of those and Kyle Busch the other.
An expert road racer from his days in open-
wheel, Allmendinger beat the best in Ambrose,
who has been dominant in NASCARs top two
series at The Glen, also winning four straight
Nationwide events.
Ambrose was going for a weekend sweep
after capturing the Zippo 200 on Saturday.
Im thrilled for AJ, said Ambrose, who
drove for JTG Daugherty before Allmendinger.
The victory made JTG Daugherty Racing eli-
gible for the Chase for the Sprint Cup title, and
Allmendinger isnt planning on stopping

Monday Aug. 11, 2014 THEDAILYJOURNAL
Bernardino was a once-in-a-lifetime oppor-
tunity for a Pacica team which, in being
the last California Little League team left
standing, celebrated a season for the ages.
We had lots of fun, Rodriguez said. Just
being with your teammates the whole sum-
mer, it just makes it better than it already
Nevada explodes early
In Saturdays rst inning, though, it was
clear Mountain Ridge was a team of destiny.
With Pacica playing as the home team
Mountain Ridge won a coin ip held imme-
diately after Fridays seminals and chose
to play as the away team the Pacica
defense endured an inning like one to which
they, as an offensive juggernaut this sea-
son, subjected so many opposing teams.
Mountain Ridge scored nine times in the
inning, sending 12 batters to the plate. By
the time the half inning was over, Pacica
trailed by its greatest rst-inning decit of
the postseason, before the team had even
taken an at-bat.
A day after Mountain Ridge left-hander
Austin Kryszczuk pitched a complete-game
masterpiece in Fridays 5-1 seminal win
over Southern California champ Encinitas,
the right-handed slugger had his best offen-
sive inning of the postseason by reaching
base twice. In Kryszczuks rst at-bat, he
drew a one-out walk to start the rally. After
Mountain Ridge batted around, and knocked
out Pacifica starting pitcher Cruise
Thompson in the process, Kryszczuk
capped the nine-run rally with a thundering
three-run home run his fth of the tour-
Between Thompson and reliever Christian
Falk, Pacifica yielded five hits and four
walks in the inning.
To score nine runs in the top of the rst
in a championship game was huge for us,
Kryszczuk said.
Pacica hoped to answer
Just one night after Pacicas 1-0 semi-
nal win over Honolulu, Pacica manager
Steve Falk said he was hoping to turn the
championship game into an offensive
slugfest after the opening half frame, simi-
lar to his teams 17-15 victory in the
Section 2 championship game July 26 to
advance to regional play.
I was hoping, Falk said. Weve seen
good pitching the whole time. It seems
were getting every teams No. 1. It seems
every team has a guy throwing mid-70s. For
a Little Leaguer, thats some great heat.
Pacifica answered by making a little
noise, rallying for two runs in the bottom
of the frame. Thompson reached on an error
then moved to third on a double by Elijah
Ricks. Thompson scored on a groundout by
Christian Falk, moving Ricks to third.
Justice Turner followed with a sacrice y to
plate Ricks, cutting Mountain Ridges lead
to 9-2.
But Mountain Ridge made a penultimate
statement with a lone run in the top of the
second. Stone led off with double to left-
center. He moved to third on a groundout by
Justin Hausner. Then with two outs, Alex
Barker shot an RBI single to right to up
Mountain Ridges lead to 10-2, accounting
for all the nights scoring save Stones
sixth-inning solo shot.
Stone was 3 for 3 in the game and fell a
triple short of the cycle. Throughout the
tournament he batted .529 (9 for 17).
Mountain Ridge starting pitcher Brennan
Holligan earned the win, working 3 1/3
innings while striking out four against no
walks. The right-handers night ended after
he hit three of the last ve batters he faced,
drilling Christian Falk in the left elbow
then Rodriguez square in the ribs, before
tagging Jordan Salgado with a glancing
shot to the helmet.
Pacificas Shane Hawkins immediately
locked up with Mountain Ridge reliever
Josh Zuehlsdorff. Hawkins battled for a 12-
pitch walk, but Pacica stranded the bases
loaded. In the fth, Pacica again loaded the
bases with two outs, but Mountain Ridge
reliever Zachary Hare entered to leave them
loaded. The right-hander then retired the
side in order in the sixth to end it.
Power outage in San Bernardino
After Pacica scored in double gures in
seven consecutive games leading into
regional play, the team didnt score in dou-
ble gures at all through six games in San
We did score a lot of runs before but we
saw good pitching and we battled, Steve
Falk said. We made it into the nal. I cant
complain. Sure, Id like to get onto a plane
(to Williamsport) in the morning. But I
cant complain about this.
The 2014 Pacica American team will be
remembered as an offensive juggernaut,
which hit .422 on the season. In fact, the
team surpassed the 200-hit mark Saturday.
No. 200 came off the bat of Turner with a
line drive single to right in the fth.
However, the character of the team was
dened by its manager, Steve Falk, who
even in the wake of the regional champi-
onship loss was capable of flashing a
patented boyish smile of his own. Yes,
Christian Falk is a chip off the old block.
And for Pacica American, and for the game
of baseball in general, that is a extraordi-
narily good thing.
I know what theyre capable of, and I was
hoping they could get through it, Steve
Falk said of his frame of mind through the
rst inning. I just keep saying, theyre 12.
Theyre not getting paid. Theyre 12.
Indeed, in the grand scheme of things, it
was a fairytale summer for 12 boys amid
their middle school summer. And it was a
historic one. In advancing to Saturdays
regional championship, Pacica American
is by far the greatest 12-year-old team P-
Town has ever produced.

Injuries mar joint practice
with 49ers and Ravens
OWINGS MILLS, Md. Baltimore
Ravens defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore
sustained what appeared to be a season-end-
ing injury Sunday in a hard-hitting joint
practice with the San Francisco 49ers.
Lewis-Moore was carted off the eld, and
afterward Ravens coach John Harbaugh
called it a major injury.
Lewis-Moore missed 2013 after suffering
a torn right ACL at the end of his college
career at Notre Dame. Baltimore picked him
in the sixth round of the 2013 draft, and he
was making progress in camp this summer.
The Ravens already lost another defensive
end, rookie Brent Urban, earlier in camp
with a torn ACL.
Sports brief
OAKLAND The other pitcher
the Oakland Athletics acquired in
the trade for Jeff Samardzija is
starting to look like he can con-
tribute during the stretch run after
Jason Hammels second straight
superb start ended with the As
bullpen imploding in the nal two
innings of a 6-1 loss to the
Minnesota Twins on Sunday.
But the right-handers turnaround
is an encouraging sign for
Oakland. Hammel, who beat Tampa
Bay his last time out, had lost his
rst four starts following the July
4 trade from the Chicago Cubs.
This is the best hes pitched
from what Ive seen, As manager
Bob Melvin said.
Brian Doziers 20th homer in the
first was the only run Hammel
allowed in 6 1-3 innings. He gave
up four hits, struck out ve and
walked two.
I had to stay the course. Ive
pitched enough to know you just
keep going, you keep working at it
and pitching through it, Hammel
said. It was just a matter of going
out there, trusting my stuff and
keep competing.
Apoor offensive showing and a
rare off day for Oaklands bullpen
gave Hammel little to show for his
Kurt Suzuki hit a tiebreaking
double and Josh Willingham added
a two-run homer off Luke
Gregerson (2-2) in the eighth as
the Twins snapped a 12-game los-
ing streak to Oakland. Minnesota
scored two more in the ninth
against Jesse Chavez to avoid a
four-game sweep with its rst win
over the As since last September.
Stephen Vogts RBI single in the
rst accounted for the As only run.

Always Welcome!
said. But hes got good stuff and hes going
to dominate for a long time through his
playing career.
Having been clocked in the mid-90s
throughout his summer season for the trav-
el-ball Nor Cal Baseball squad, McGarry was
throwing free and easy Saturday. His fastball
sat between 87-90 mph while he featured a
three-pitch repertoire including a changeup
and a curve.
He has a good future ahead of him, one
National League scout said. He has a live
arm, he has good control and he has pitcha-
With two weeks remaining for summer
break, and many of the players in the Area
Code Games wrapping up their summer sea-
sons Saturday, McGarry still has his most
prestigious baseball left to go. Later this
month in Houston, he will try out for the
Team USA 18-and-under squad. He made the
initial cut in July and is now among 40
players looking to qualify for the nal ros-
ter of 28 and make the trip to the Pan
American Championships in Cabo San
Lucas, Mexico next month.
McGarry has grown accustomed to play-
ing travel ball in previous seasons. This
summer has been a whirlwind like no other
Id been on the road for three weeks, I
stayed at home two days and then I came
down here, McGarry said. Were going to
stay down here a couple days and just enjoy
the beach. Then another week and school
starts. Ive done travel ball before where
you go and play. But these are big showcas-
es where you go out and try to show yourself
off to the scouts.
And while McGarry already has already
committed to an athletic scholarship at
Vanderbilt the alma mater of current big-
league pitchers David Price, Mike Minor
and Sonny Gray he said he will keep his
options open next June when the Major
League Baseball Draft rolls around.
Its going to be a tough decision,
McGarry said.
The As have taken an extensive weeklong
look at McGarry with Clark at the helm of
the Area Code As. The green-and-gold is a
tting uniform for McGarry, considering he
plays high school baseball at the alma
mater of As major league manager Bob
I know [McGarry] is a very famous kid
from a very prestigious high school and
going to Vanderbilt, but I hadnt seen him
throw until our tryout (last month), Clark
said. Hes loose, hes agile, and [his fast-
ball] has got good life to it. If were not get-
ting a hold of him now, denitely someone
is going to get a good arm in three years for
Engelmann, in having played travel ball
with McGarry for three years, has seen the
progression of the right-handers rst three
high school seasons.
Ever since Little League, hes always
been a stud, Engelmann said. Hes always
been a name. Going through high school,
hes really developed, especially his fast-
ball velocity.
According to Engelmann, McGarry was
throwing in the mid-80s two summers ago
entering into his sophomore year of high
school. Last summer, he reached 90 mph.
This summer, his velocity has made the
climb to the 95-mph plateau.
Hes hard to hit off of, Ill give you that,
Engelmann said.
Through the As ve games last week, the
team tabbed a 2-2-1 record, dropping their
last two. Engelmann did not start the last
two games due to a minor thumb ailment.
Yet no one took more swings during
Saturdays game than the Burlingame slug-
ger, as he had a bat in his hands nearly the
entire game, and stepped onto the field
between innings several times to take a bar-
rage of practice cuts.
I was itching to get out there,
Engelmann said. [Clark] knew it and said,
Hey, Ill get you an at-bat.
Engelmann struck out in his lone pinch-
hitting appearance in the ninth inning. Yet
Clarks evaluation of Engelmanns skill-set
included raves about the 6-4 outfielders
other baseball tools.
He can run like the wind. He can throw
well. Hes very good instinctually, Clark
said. The bat has always been in question,
from what Ive been told. He really showed
some mature at-bats and squared some balls
up early (in the Area Code Games). I think
he was already on the map, but I think he
really solidied putting himself on the map
here. Theres no question. The way he car-
ries himself off the eld, just the jovial per-
sonality and the mature grounded kid.

Mark Emmert said Sunday that the NCAA
will appeal a ruling that opens the door for
college athletes to receive some of the
money they help generate in major sports.
In the NCAA presidents rst public com-
ments since Fridays ruling, Emmert told
ABCs This Week With George
Stephanopoulos that college sports largest
governing body found a lot in the decision
that was admirable and some parts they
disagreed with so strongly that they could
not let it go unchallenged in court.
Yes, at least in part we will, Emmert said
when asked whether the NCAA planned an
appeal. No one on our legal team or the col-
lege conferences legal teams think this is a
violation of antitrust laws and we need to get
that settled in the courts.
The NCAAs decision to challenge the rul-
ing is hardly a surprise.
Donald Remy, the organizations chief
legal ofcer, had repeatedly said that if the
NCAA lost, it would appeal the case all the
way to the U.S. Supreme Court if needed.
Many legal experts think this case could be
heading that direction, though its unclear
whether the nations highest court would
take it.
We remain condent that the NCAA has
not violated the antitrust laws and intend to
appeal, Remy said in a statement released
following the television show. We will also
be seeking clarity from the district court on
some details of its ruling.
Joseph Farelli, an attorney with the New
York-based law rm of Pitta & Giblin who
specializes in labor law, said the NCAA did-
nt have a choice after U.S. District Judge
Claudia Wilken on Friday shot down the
NCAAs argument that its model of ama-
teurism was the only way to run college
sports. Wilken wrote that football players
in FBS schools and Division I mens basket-
ball players must be allowed to receive at
least $5,000 a year for rights to their names,
images and likenesses, money that would be
put in a trust fund and given to them when
they leave school.

ts a fact. In shelters and rescue
organizations across the country,
black cats spend more time awaiting
adoption than cats of any other color or
color combination. We dont doubt some
potential adopters shy away from black
cats because of the bad luck stigma. In
many cultures, black cats are seen as
lucky! Our new center is incredibly bright
and well lit, but this isnt the case in other
shelters. Many are older, poorly-lit facili-
ties and the dark, drab surroundings dont
help black cats get noticed. Also, while an
organizations website can be a great place
for adopters to fall in love, its not always
the best spot for black cats (and dogs).
Online photos dont do the black beauties
justice and cant easily capture expres-
sions and personalities. Finally, and per-
haps most critical, black cats languish
because they are often the most common
cats; there are so many that its difcult
for any single cat to stand out in a shelter.
Currently, of our 80 cats available for
adoption, 47 are black (or predominantly
black); and, more than half of these 47 are
kittens under 6 months! Its been so
noticeable that one of our fabulous sup-
porters gave us a generous donation to
help fund an adoption promotion: no
adoption fees for adult black cats and 50
percent off black kitten (or two-for-one).
This promotion is turning into a ve-day
event beginning Wednesday, Aug. 13 and
ending Sunday, Aug. 17, which is National
Black Cat Appreciation Day. Adopters
must still complete an adoption prole
and meet with one of our counselors before
heading home with an overlooked treas-
ure. And, we even have a new long-sleeve
T-shirt design which hit our Furchandise
store last week. Its a silhouette of a black
cat with the message You Can Make Me
Lucky. And, youre already in luck as
were discounting the shirts price from
$26 to $21, even if you dont adopt.

LOS ANGELES Teenage Mutant Ninja
Turtles sliced off $65 million at the week-
end box ofce.
Paramount Pictures comic-book adapta-
tion featuring Megan Fox alongside com-
puter-generated renditions of the pizza-eat-
ing, sewer-dwelling superheroes lunged
into rst place in its debut weekend, accord-
ing to studio estimates Sunday. The action
lms totally tubular result prompted the
studio to announce plans Sunday for a sequel
set for June 3, 2016.
Megan Colligan, Paramounts head of
domestic marketing and distribution, said
the success of the Ninja Turtles reboot
was mostly derived from a pair of distinctly
different audiences: men who fondly remem-
bered the 1980s and 90s franchise that
spawned a cartoon series, toy line and a
live-action film trilogy, and youngsters
familiar with a newer Nickelodeon animated
TV series.
Its odd when you have 25- to 35-year-
olds and then 7- to 12-year-olds really
excited about the same film, Colligan
said. The teen audience was actually the
one that wasnt as familiar with the prop-
erty, so we put a lot of focus on teens. I
think we did a great job of getting them out
there to see the film, which is so fun,
refreshing and unique.
Ninja Turtles, which also stars Wi l l
Arnett and William Fichtner, made an addi-
tional $28.7 million in international mar-
kets such as Russia, Mexico, Malaysia,
Singapore and Taiwan, bringing its world-
wide total to a radical $93.7 million.
Marvel Studios Guardians of the
Galaxy slid into second place in its sec-
ond weekend with $41.5 million, bringing
its total domestic haul to $175.9 million.
The total worldwide box office for the cos-
mic romp starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana
and Dave Bautista as members of an inter-
galactic band of do-gooders stands at
$313.2 million. Marvel and Guardians
distributor Disney revealed last month at
San Diego Comic-Con that a follow-up is
planned for 2017.
Guardians and Ninja Turtles are com-
ing to the rescue of an otherwise shell-
shocked summer box office, which is still
down more than 16 percent over a year
This is the third weekend in a row weve
had a film overperform, said Paul
Dergarabedian, senior media analyst with
Rentrak. Its finally starting to feel like
summer. The perception of August used to
be that it was the month of the B-sides, not
the hits. The movies are now defining what
August can be, not the month defining
what the movies should be.

tourism economies and critical infrastructure
like airports, schools, re stations, hospi-
tals and wastewater treatment plants, accord-
ing to the report. Nearly 3,500 miles of
roads, 280 miles of railroads are also at risk
and sea level rise will accelerate the erosion
of the states 840 miles of coastline, accord-
ing to the report.
Yet as dire as the predictions are, officials
stress beginning to prepare and plan with
sea level rise in mind will help keep the
state thriving.
San Mateo County challenges
Nearly three-fourths of the states popu-
lation resides near the coastline and the San
Francisco Bay shoreline and San Mateo
County is identified as a hot spot for sea
level rise.
Gordon, Dave Pine, president of the San
Mateo County Board of Supervisors, and
U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, have
held several conferences to discuss the pend-
ing dilemma and the need for cities and juris-
dictions to combine efforts.
Having the state begin to create guiding
principles is a step in the right direction,
Pine said.
The report is a valuable contribution to
highlight the challenges of sea level rise
throughout the state. Throughout the last
year or so, weve done a lot of work in San
Mateo County to bring attention to the issue
and of course this study speaks to the chal-
lenges statewide. And I think it does a good
job in highlighting the breadth of assets that
will be at risk and the types of industries that
will be at risk, Pine said.
Two of San Mateo Countys most notable
assets at risk are the San Francisco
International Airport and multiple waste-
water treatment plants, Gordon said. SFO has
already begun planning for sea level rise and
but Gordon said he is seriously concerned for
the treatment plants.
The impacts on the wastewater treatment
facilities and costs associated with improve-
ments are solid examples of how sea level
rise has an expansive effect, he said.
Our wastewater treatment plants, which
will all have to be retrotted at some point,
is an area that directly impacts every single
resident of San Mateo County. Because our
treatment facilities are primarily located
along the Bayfront and wastewater flows
from every community whether youre locat-
ed on the Bay or not, Gordon said.
After the last county conference in June,
Pine said working groups are to be formed
to prepare a countywide sea level rise vul-
nerability assessment, create an organiza-
tional structure for ongoing efforts and
consider funding options.
Lack of funding
Another poignant trial cities and the state
face as they plan for sea level rise is a lack of
nancial resources.
As part of the 2014-15 state budget, $2.5
million was allocated for the new California
Climate Resilience Account. But with the
extensive communities and economies pre-
dicted to be affected by sea level rise, the
money may not go far.
Applicants to the Coastal Commissions
Local Coastal Program Assistance Grant
Program requested over ve times the amount
of available funding, according to the report.
The report recommends the state consider
creating a low-interest revolving loan fund
geared toward supporting communities or
industries in need of assistance and incen-
tivize planning and adaptation through addi-
tional funding.
Pine said San Mateo County is not alone in
its struggle and it is critical to act quickly in
addressing the problem.
I think a particular challenge will be that
San Francisco Bay is not the only place in
California and certainly not the only place in
the nation that will be affected by sea level
rise. And there will be a real competition for
resources. So to the extent that we have a plan
in place,
well be bet-
ter equipped
to compete
for those
r esour ces,
Pine said.
Coordinated planning
Pine and Gordon said one of the most monu-
mental aspects to the report is having the state
begin to take an oversight role and incentivize
continued research and studies.
I think its important for the state agen-
cies to begin to set some guidance. We need
to, across the state of California, so that
every local jurisdiction is working with the
same set of assumptions, Gordon said. We
all ought to be planning at the same level
and that will require some state guidance.
Creating a state repository to ensure peo-
ple are making educated policy decisions
will be key to continued efforts. With that in
mind, Gordon currently has pending legisla-
tion to create an online sea level rise data-
base where municipalities can learn and
share best practices.
Pine said the city of San Francisco has also
begun to actively investigate the challenges
and solutions to navigating sea level rise and
its civil grand jury recently released a related
report. Sea level rise knows no county or
city boundaries, and Pine said the states
report is a positive step in doing more than
just mulling the issue.
What I like about this report is its one of
the more concrete things Ive seen. Were so
early in this discussion and the focus has pri-
marily been on the scope of this problem and
there hasnt been much discussion of what to
do on it, Pine said. Addressing sea level
rise will require a concerted effort over many
decades. So we are really at this point, really
its the rst pitch in a nine-inning game.
Weve started, thats a good rst step. Its an
important step.

over the course of a few months; the
most poignant of which occurred on the
morning of Jan. 24 when a 17-year-old
girl was hit by a driver while in the
crosswalk. The girl was on her way to
school around 6:49 a.m. when a woman
driving a BMW hit her and sent her to
the intensive care unit with serious
The incidents prompted residents to
request slower speed limits throughout
many of the citys busy streets and four-
way stop signs at the Port Royal Avenue
and Edgewater Boulevard intersection.
However, the council opted not to
accede to the publics request stating
lowering speed limits and installing
stops signs would go against trafc safe-
ty experts advice and the California
Vehicle Code.
Initially, the council voted to com-
pletely remove the intersection but after
realizing pedestrians could still legally
cross, settled on installing the ashing
signs and restriping the crosswalk.
Councilman Herb Perez had pushed for
the stop signs but had to recuse himself
due to the proximity of the intersection
to his home and business.
I think its a step in the right direc-
tion. Hopefully it will ameliorate some
of the challenges that we have there. It
continues to be a perilous intersection,
its very challenging to cross that
street, Perez said. Hopefully with an
educational effort and the flashing
lights, we can get people to be more
vigilant about stopping for pedestrians,
because that is one of the busiest inter-

while others already had started college.
Students who pass and excel on AP
exams, scored on a scale of one to ve,
are eligible for college credit.
A federal judge rejected a challenge
seeking to reinstate the canceled
scores because test-takers are warned
that their scores can be canceled
because of improper seating.
Our hardworking students suffered
greatly from an irregularity in the seat-
ing arrangement, which was a techni-
cal error since there was absolutely no
evidence of any misconduct by any
students at Mills, and the administra-
tion had more proctors and took
extraordinary steps to ensure the
integrity of the testing, past PTO co-
president Chris Noma said in an email.
While parents and student appealed to
the College Board to reconsider the
cancellation of the test scores, the
lack of any due process procedures in
the Education Code, with no timelines
for completing the investigation, seri-
ously and adversely impacted the stu-
dents ability to re-test and acquire col-
lege credits.
The legislation, Senate Bill 915,
was authored by state Sen. Jerry Hill,
D-San Mateo and received a 75-0 vote
in the Assembly Thursday. If amend-
ments to it are approved by the state
Senate and signed by the governor, it
will create an expedited timeline for
investigations and subsequent new
The bill also requires test adminis-
trators to keep a seating chart, noting
the Mills High investigation was
delayed and a wide range of scores can-
celed because there was no documenta-
tion showing where students sat.
As more and more students strive
for academic excellence in entering
college, its important that the rules
for conducting advance placement
tests are clear and fair for all test takers
and for the schools administering
these exams, Hill said in an email. I
introduced SB 915 to ensure that the
process for administering these exams
and for addressing any issues that
arise as a result is fair and timely for
all concerned. I am delighted that the
legislation received such strong sup-
port in the Assembly.
Marc Friedman, vice president of the
San Mateo Union High School District
Board of Trustees, said he hopes it
passes the state Senate and gets signed
by the governor.
Its a good bill and its an appropri-
ate bill, he said. Im glad it will hold
ETS to a certain standard, so they cant
make decisions unilaterally.

reform, said district Trustee Stephen

Others appreciate the legislation,
but note that it is too late for students

classes he needs.
That was a long time coming to
give students due process, he said.
Its too late for the ones who were
affected. ... For most of the basic
classes hed hope to take, hes on the
waitlist. This is all because one stu-

ing was fortuitous, said Manuel
Santamaria, the foundations vice
president of strategic initiatives and
Im glad we already had an ongoing
conversation, Santamaria said.
But the border crisis is only one of
the issues adding to the growing need
for high-quality legal help, he said.
Others include human trafcking and
immigrant reform, including the DREAM-
ER issue which is on the horizon.
If that does happen, it will bring
even more attention to the plight of
immigrants and the need to provide
services, he said.
Santamaria estimated about 200,00
immigrants in both San Mateo and
Santa Clara counties the two coun-
ties benefiting from the foundation
grants could be affected by immi-
gration reform. If so, the need for more
attorneys and more services will grow
and the already insufficient amount
available will be stretched further. The
limited amount of funders for legal
services is another challenge, he said.
The nine grants awarded by the foun-
dation are meant to help the chosen
nonprots gain accreditation for staff
to represent clients and buy necessary
hardware and software to work collabo-
ratively and regionally through tech-
For example, a Daly City provider
might be able to get expertise from a
provider in Gilroy if they are better
The nonprots chosen in San Mateo
County include $360,000 for
Collaborative Resources for
Immigration Services on the Peninsula
(CRISP), a group of eight organiza-
tions providing low-cost legal aid.
Catholic Charities CYO of San
Francisco and Catholic Charities of
Santa Clara County, both which oper-
ate in San Mateo County, were also
funded. The San Francisco outlet
received $20,000 to expand outreach
and direct legal services here while its
Santa Clara County counterpart
received $25,000 to provide technical
assistance to up and coming legal
services groups.
The International Institute of the
Bay Area received a $50,000 grant to
train a Board of Immigration Appeals
accredited case worker in San Mateo
County and another $60,560 to sup-
port technical and administrative sup-
port of a system to recruit and match up
legal volunteers.
The Mission Asset Fund, of both San
Mateo and Santa Clara counties,
received $50,000 to support its
DREAMER and Citizenship Lending
circles. Pangea Legal Services, also of
both counties, received $35,000 to
help directly represent low-income
immigrants in removal proceedings
and complex immigration cases.
The grants will be ongoing to the
extent the foundations budget allows,
Santamaria said.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Dont lag when it comes
to important paperwork. You will find shortcuts as
well as interesting options that will be beneficial
legally, financially or contractually. Channel your
energy wisely.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Emotionally charged
issues will develop if you are overly sensitive to what
others say. Seek an objective opinion from someone
you trust. Getting the facts straight will eliminate
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Its impossible to
reach a decision if uncertainty prevails. Dont be
coerced by anyone who puts pressure on you to
make a move. Stay put until you know you are
making the right choice.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Continue moving
forward. You will gain satisfaction if you complete
unfinished business. Enlist help from people who
have the means and knowledge to help you reach
your goals.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Travel will give
you insight into a dilemma. A nancial investment
isnt likely to turn in your favor. You can make
headway if you keep your plans a secret.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be assertive. You
can get what you want if you are persistent. You need
to make your voice heard if you wish to win support
for your latest venture.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Letting criticism get
to you will cause you to doubt your abilities. Someone
with an ulterior motive will try to prevent you from
getting ahead. Put what you have to offer on display.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Money is in the
picture. A contract, gift, settlement or nancial
opportunity is present. Use this chance to make an
advantageous move. Present and promote an idea to
someone inuential.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) You may end up as a
mediator during a family disagreement. Be diplomatic
and try to nd a solution that everyone can be happy
with. Now is not the time to take sides.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Someone is likely
to disappoint you. Dont let anything get you down.
Present your plans in order to make progress. Help will
arrive from an unexpected source.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Maintain focus, or you
could be sidelined by someone trying to manipulate
you. Its important to highlight your strong points when
marketing your assets.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) You will face some
delays and frustrations. Dont give in an alternative
route will get you where you want to go. Its the
journey, not the destination, that counts.

Is spinal decompression an effective, long term solution for
patients with herniated Discs, degenerated discs
sciatica, and chronic neck and back pain?
Is it Effective without drugs, pills, shots, surgery or chiropractic?
Hilma was scheduled for Surgery for a herniated disc that
occurred when she bent over to pick up some luggage. A
back specialist took an MRI which showed
a herniated disc that was pinching on the L5 nerve root
causing excruciating pain down her right leg accompanied
by numbness, tingling and a hot poker feeling. Walking
was almost unbearable and a wheel chair was the only way
she could get around for two months. She tried a round
of epidurals that wore off within a day or two. She tried
some high dosage prescription pain pills with only an
upset stomach to show for it. Her specialist said Your
only option at this point is surgery. He scheduled her for
surgery 3 days later. However, Hilma didnt want surgery.
Many of her friends had undergone surgery with no or
minimal results. So Hilma began to get on the Internet and
find every possible non-surgical option for a herniated disc.
It seems as if everyone is talking about revolutionary, new
spinal decompression for neck and back pain. More than
7,000 neurosurgeons, physical therapists, medical doctors,
and chiropractors have added spinal decompression over the
last 10 years. More than 10 research articles support up to
80% effectiveness with even the toughest of cases. And now
even other countries are getting in on the action as spinal
decompression becomes the worldwide go to treatment
for neck and back
pain. Listen to how one medical doctor helped not only
himself but also his patients.
I was amazed at the results. I was astounded. I have now
treated hundreds of patients including myself and am
continually impressed with the results. Dr. Donald Bailey,
M.D., Pain Management, Savannah, GA
Why All the Fuss?
Simple. Hundreds of thousands of successfully treated
spinal decompression patients might say that spinal
decompression was nothing short of a miracle. It has been
called a Godsend, life changing, miracu-
lous, and even the best decision I ever made. These
mounting spinal decompression success stories are from
patients who have helped find relief from back pain even
after everything else failed, sometimes even after failed back
surgeries. Celebrities, CEOs, Professional Athletes, patients
into their nineties, and even medical doctors themselves all
seem to know something that the general public still may
not be aware of.
The Controversy
The controversy isnt over whether spinal decompression
works. Hundreds of thousands of happy patients agree
on that. The controversy is fitting alternative medical
practices into a model dominated over the years by
pharmaceutical pills, shots, physical therapy and surgery.
Until recently patients like Hilma thought these were the
only options. Patients complain every day that they dont
want to take pills because of some potentially nasty side
effects. Shots tend to be temporary and patients know
that simply disabling your body from telling you not to
do something in order to not make it worse is probably
not something you want to disable. They say, I want to
actually FIX the problem, not just mask it.
The Breakthrough
Because of these concerns doctors, engineers, and
researchers have spent the last 15 years searching for a
non-invasive, non-surgical, pill free, clinically proven way
to actually fix the growing epidemic of neck and back pain
and not just mask the symptoms. So its no surprise that
when research began mounting showing up to 80% success
rates, long term effectiveness and not just temporary relief
from researchers and institutions such as doctors from
Mayo Clinic and researchers at John Hopkins, it created a
serious stir.
The Revolution
The machine that was the subject of these research findings
is called spinal decompression and is now being offered
by thousands of clinics all over the world. In fact some
believe that there will come a day when EVERY back pain
specialist, physical therapist and chiropractor will have a spinal
decompression table because thats how effective this treatment
really is. One Orthopedics Surgeon has even been quoted
as saying, As an orthopedic surgeon and peer reviewer, I see
many patients who are significantly worse after back surgery.
In many cases I believe that if they had been treated with
spinal decompression before surgery they would have resolved
completely. Dr. Howard Berkowitz, M.D., Orthopedist,
Atlanta, GA. Many clinics have even added up to
10 spinal decompression tables just to keep up with the
demand of the happy, successful, life changing results
of their local patients. This treatment has gone from a
medical doctor just wanting to fix his own back pain to a
full blown phenomenon. Even the United States patent
office has added several patents for spinal decompression
equipment to protect the technology from imitators.
Now, thanks to revolutionary spinal decompression
technology patients are saying goodbye to 10, 20 even 30
years of back pain with this comfortable, safe, non-surgical
back and neck pain option. Luckily Hilma was one of
those. Hear what she had to say. I was three days from
having back surgery when I saw an ad the newspaper.
I came down to the office and the Doctors explained
The Drs put me on the Decompression Table and only 3
weeks later my back and leg feel wonderful. No more pain
pills or emergency room visits for me. I cannot say enough
about Spinal Decompression! I recommend it to anyone
with back or neck pain.
Is It Worth It?
Many patients would say that a treatment with almost no
side effects that is non-surgical and doesnt involve highly
addictive pills with lots of side effects is a no-brainer.
However, make no mistake about it the established
medical community (and of course they know everything)
will say that pills, shots and surgery are all the options
patients need. But theres no denying that hundreds of
thousands of happy patients that had tried everything else
and failed and then got life changing relief from sometimes
even only a couple of safe spinal decompression treatments,
couldnt be wrong. Frankly I think after 10+ years of success
spinal decompression is not only here to stay. But may
even become the worlds new leader in the treatment of
back and neck pain. Will this new therapy put spinal
surgeons out of business????
So Whats the Catch?
Dr. Brian Self, one of the nations leading spinal decom-
pression specialists says, There are 3. First, while spinal
decompression is far less expensive than surgery, the
treatments are not always covered by insurance. Luckily the
treatments are affordable and most clinics offer financing
and discount programs.
Second, some patients will require up to 8 weeks of
treatments. While many patients get significant relief after
the first week of treatments, some patients may require up
to 6-8 weeks of care to see maximum results depending on
the patients health, severity, duration of symptoms, and
social factors such as diabetes, obesity, smoking and others.
And last but not least some patients do not qualify for this
program. Patients such as pregnant women, spinal cancer
patients, patients with aortic aneurysms and a
few other conditions do not qualify. Check with your
doctor to see if your condition would qualify for spinal
decompression treatments.
