San Mateo police blocked off the Peninsula Avenue/Highway 101 overpass Friday
evening as they investigate the shooting of a young man.

San Mateo police are investigating
the shooting of a 19-year-old man
who was hit while walking on the
Peninsula Avenue/Highway 101 overpass during Friday’s evening commute.
Police began receiving multiple
calls of shots fired around 4:40 p.m.
and found the man suffering from two
gunshot wounds, said San Mateo
police Sgt. Rick Decker.
The victim, a San Mateo resident,
was found on the south sidewalk near
the center of the overpass and was
semi-conscious as he was transferred
to the hospital, Decker said.
Decker said the victim suffered from

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PALO ALTO — Cyberspace is the new “Wild West,”
President Barack Obama said Friday, with everyone looking
to the government to be the sheriff. But he told the private
sector it must do more to stop cyber attacks aimed at the
U.S. every day.
“Everybody is online, and everybody is vulnerable,”
Obama said during a White House cybersecurity summit at
Stanford University, just miles from Google, Facebook,
Intel and other internet giants.
“The business leaders here want their privacy and their
children protected, just like the consumer and privacy advocates here want America to keep leading the world in technology and be safe from attacks,” he said.
Partnering with the federal government is a hard sell in
the Silicon Valley. The pace of innovation in California’s
tech hub outstrips Beltway bureaucracy, and tech firms chafe
at regulations that could limit their reach.

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Suds sippers, lager lovers, ale
addicts and all other beer connoisseurs
rejoice as local bars and restaurants
across San Mateo County participated
in San Francisco Beer Week.

Establishments poured a variety of
rare and exclusive beers not usually
available in the area, except during the
event that began Feb. 7 and will continue through the weekend.
As craft beer culture has exploded in
popularity recently, anticipation for
rare brews runs high.

Workers at the Grape & Grain in
downtown San Mateo said they expected lines at the door before the bar
opened in the afternoon, as thirsty
patrons anticipated the chance to have
a taste of a Bourbon County Stout from

There was a priest in third century
Rome who defied Emperor Claudius II.
Claudius outlawed marriage for young
men, because he thought single men
made better soldiers. Valentine performed marriages for young lovers in
secret. Claudius found out and ordered
the he be put to death. Valentine was
made a saint by the Catholic Church.
Thus, the legend of St. Valentine.

win anything. It’s just the fun of writing a
movie and filming and making it come
together.”
All San Mateo County residents in
sixth- through 12th-grade are encouraged
to submit their up to 10-minute films by
Feb. 27. One of the most exciting aspects
of the growing program is that all of the
films will be screened at the library and
judged live on Saturday, March 14, Figard
said.
“I always stress the festival isn’t about
winning, we show all of the films that are
entered and I think that’s really important,” Figard said. “Film festivals are supposed to be about the filmmakers supporting each other and making acquaintances
who share their interests and so we want to
encourage filmmaking youth, but also
camaraderie and support at the same time.”
Robert Zuniga won first place last year
for a narrative concerning the effects of
combat on a soldier’s life post-war.
Zuniga, then a Carlmont High School senior who created the film “Fear” with his
friend Jim Argyris, said the contest was
about more than prizes.
“It’s a good way of making friends, people that are interested in what you’re interested in, it’s pretty awesome, ” Zuniga
said. “It’s a really great experience and I
hope that it expands.”
Sixteen filmmakers entered their works
last year and Figard said she’s hopeful the

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Passionate high school and middle
school students with a creative flair for
film are encouraged to submit original
works to the upcoming San Mateo County
Library Teen Film Festival.
For the seventh year, the film festival is
offering youth the opportunity to showcase their talent in front of a live audience
and possibly win prizes.
With the help of a $5,000 grant, the
county’s library system also provides a
film program for teens 12 through 19
years old, said Belmont library assistant
Kayla Figard.
Dig It: Digital Short Movie Project for
Teens, offers aspiring videographers free
access to expensive movie-making equipment such as high-definition cameras,
microphones, lights, tripods, green
screens and film-editing software, Figard
said.
Figard, 24, said she was inspired to start
the now countywide program and festival
that began in Pacifica.
“I wanted to give teens that may not
have the funds to buy their own camera and
that don’t have the opportunity at their
school to rent a camera, I wanted to give
those teens a chance, ” Figard said.
“Because I had so much fun making
movies and it doesn’t even matter if you

CITY GOVERNMENT
• The San Mateo Ci ty Co unci l will hold a study session
Tuesday to discuss infill material options for the installation of
synthetic turf at Lo s Prado s Park. After concerns arose regarding adverse health effects of using recycled tires as infill, the
council opted to hold a study session to review current data and
alternate materials.
The council will consider crumb rubber, which is currently budgeted and anticipated to cost around $2.28 million; EPDM or manufactured virgin rubber, which would entail an additional unfunded cost of $26,637; and TPE or a manufactured plastic and rubber combination, which would have an unfunded additional cost of
$473,637.
The study session begins 6 p.m., Tuesday Feb. 17 at City Hall, 330 W. 20th Ave. For

countywide contest will expand and
inspire.
The Dig It program offers five camera
kits free to rent from the Belmont, Foster
City and Pacifica libraries. Professional
editing software such as Final Cut Pro and
iMovie are also available on iMacs that
can be used at the library, Figard said.
The program also offered workshops in
January taught by a San Francisco State
University professor, Figard said.
With the deadline approaching, Figard
said she’s excited to see the films that
local talents will turn in. In past contests,
the entries have ranged in genres from
documentary, animation, horror, experimental and more, Figard said.
“I’m always amazed at the quality of the
work. You don’t need a fancy camera to
turn in good work and they always impress
me,” Figard said.
Zuniga agreed and encourages anyone
who’s interested to get involved. While
there are numerous online platforms for
teens to submit their works, Zuniga said
the county’s festival is unique in that all
of the movies are screened for the public
and filmmakers are required to attend.
“The [library] film festival was a little

bit more accepting or more comfortable
because you can talk to the other contestants and you can talk to the judges, ”
Zuniga said. “It’s really an awesome experience. There’s nothing to be embarrassed
about.”
A panel of five judges, including two
college film professors, will review the
films during the festival and award $150
for first place, $100 for second and $75
for third place.
Contestants must attend the event from
1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. March 14 to be eligible for an award.
Figard said she’s hopeful for the secondannual countywide festival that provides
teens with an educational opportunity and
artistic outlet.
“You learn so much from it. You’re creating something from scratch and it’s also
good for literacy because you’re telling a
story,” Figard said. “I definitely think it
fills a void because there’s some teens that
don’t learn in the conventional way by
reading or writing an essay necessarily,
but they can tell stories in this way
through film.”

Police release sketch
of suspected burglar
Hillsborough police have released a
sketch of a suspect they believe is responsible for a residential
burglary during which
two men were seen posing as city workers.
A home on the 500
block of El Cerrito
Avenue was broken into
sometime between noon
and 2 p.m. Wednesday,
according
to
Suspect
Hillsborough police.
Witnesses observed the two men wearing
orange work vests claim to be working for
the city and checking on a water issue as
they backed a white pick up truck into the
driveway of the burglarized home, according to police.
The suspects broke in by prying open a
rear sliding door and stole items from the
home, according to police.
The two men are described as Hispanic
and in their late 20s. They were seen driving a white Dodge Ram pickup truck similar
to the one in the photo. The paper license
plates consisted of yellow letters on a
black background, according to police.
Anyone with information is asked to
contact police at (650) 575-7470.

Elderly woman loses
thousands of dollars in fraud
An elderly San Francisco resident lost
thousands of dollars Tuesday in a scam outside the Costco in South San Francisco,
police said.
The incident took place at about 10:45
a.m. in the parking lot of the Costco at
1600 El Camino Real.
Two elderly women approached the victim, who was shown a box with what
appeared to be thousands of dollars in it.
The suspects told the victim they didn’t
know each other and she could share in the
cash if she put some of her own money in as
a down payment, according to police.
The victim drove with the suspects to a
number of banks and withdrew several thousands of dollars of her own money. She
gave the money to the suspects who then
fled the area, according to police.

Police are describing the suspects as two
black women between 50 and 70 years old.
One is described as 5 feet 3 inches to 5 feet
4 inches tall, short black hair, heavy set,
wearing a white tank top, white jacket and
black tights. The other suspect is described
as 5 feet 5 inches tall, slender, brown hair,
glasses, wearing a black leather jacket and
having a gap in her front teeth.
Police are investigating the incident and
are asking anyone with information about
the fraud to call the police department at
(650) 877-8900 or the anonymous tip line
at (650) 952-2244 or via email at

San Mateo police seek support in
suspected gang-related shooting
Police are asking for the community’s
support after one or more people fired bullets that struck three unoccupied vehicles in
San Mateo earlier this month, police said.
About 6:30 p.m. Feb. 5, officers from the
San Mateo Police Department responded to
a report of possible gunfire in the area of
North Idaho Street and Bayswater Avenue,
according to police. When officers arrived
they found evidence that one or more people had fired a gun from the intersection
toward the 800 block of North Idaho Street.
The rounds were found and no one was hit
though bullets struck three separate unoccupied vehicles. It’s likely the incident was
gang related, according to police
San Mateo police are asking anyone with
information that may help police with the
case to call the police department at (650)

The Peninsula Humane Society and

with free DNA tests that allow adopters to
understand their dog’s genetic makeup.
The program, called “Who’s Your
Daddy?” is designed to help the society
find homes for dogs that may be overlooked by adopters.
Prices for Labradoodles, Maltipoos and
Puggles are as high as $3,000.
The testing program has revealed that
the humane society has interesting breed
mixes as well, which officials there have
given fanciful names such as English
Chaniel
(Chihuahua/English
cocker
spaniel), Foxy Lhocker (Lhasa Apso/toy
fox terrier/cocker spaniel) and Yorkese
(Maltese/Yorkshire terrier), among others.
The DNA test causes no discomfort to the
dogs and takes just seconds. Staff members
swab the cheek of the dog with what resembles a large Q-tip and the sample is mailed
to a lab for analysis.
Officials with the society said they
quickly found homes for the dogs that were
tested in a previous round of the program.
If the “Who’s Your Daddy?” program continues to be a success and helps adopt out
mixed-breed dogs, humane society officials say they will consider expanding it.
Information on adoptions can be found at
phs-spca.org or at the Peninsula Humane
Society’s Center for Compassion at 1450
Rollins Road in Burlingame.

Obituary
Floyd Cecil Pell
Floyd Cecil Pell, 75, of Millbrae, California, died at the
Palo Alto VA Hospital Feb.9.
Floyd was born on July 21, 1939, in
Lockesburg, Arkansas, to Cecil and
Hellen Pell. He spent his childhood in
Oklahoma before moving to Oakland
where he attended high school and joined
the U.S. Air Force (1956-1959). Floyd
was a R.E. property manager in Foster
City (1984-2004).
Floyd is survived by his wife of 38
years, Jill Pell; their two sons Nicholas
and Shane Pell; a daughter, Lisa Pell and her children; a
brother, John Pell of Texas; and a sister, Barbara Pell of
Arkansas. He was preceded in death by his sister Lorene
Malohn, a popular country western singer from Bakersfield.
Floyd loved his family, quarterbacking flag football
teams, boxing and martial arts, and racing his 1960
Chevrolet Bel Air (1962 world record holder). During his
lifetime, he restored and collected classic automobiles,
enjoyed country western and R&B music, cruising in his ’67
Mustang and walking along the beach with his wife and two
dogs.
The family wishes to thank the VA and Stanford doctors
and nurses for their care and gracious support during Floyd’s
illness.

Agency to vote on reducing
California gas tax by 7.5 cents
SACRAMENTO — The California gas tax is set to go
down 7.5 cents a gallon this summer, although consumers
may not see a dip at the pump, the state Board of
Equalization said Friday.
The five-member tax board will vote to lower the excise
tax rate from 18 cents to 10.5 cents at its Feb. 24 meeting
in Culver City. The agency’s staff is recommending the tax
cut because of falling gas prices.
The annual adjustment based on gas prices is the result of
an accounting maneuver to close the 2010 state deficit. The
change would take effect July 1.
The agency says the annual changes generally don’t affect
overall gas prices, in part because suppliers are not required
to pass on the savings.
Californians pay a myriad of taxes at the pump. Drivers
pay an additional 36 cents a gallon for state and federal
transportation and highway projects, plus a 2.25 percent
sales tax that primarily goes to local government.
State officials say they are facing a long-term shortfall in
transportation funding because of declining revenue from
gas taxes.

Frustrated GOP tasting
limits of majority control
By Erica Werner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON

Congressional
Republicans returned to their districts for a
weeklong recess Friday no closer to a solution to keeping the Homeland Security
Department funded past this month. And
many were beginning to fear they’d have little to show from a standoff with minority
Senate Democrats and President Barack
Obama over immigration policy.
Indeed, a month after assuming control of
the Senate as well as the House, Republicans
are finding, to their chagrin, that important
things haven’t changed.
“I suppose elections have consequences,
except in the United States Senate,” complained GOP Rep. Mick Mulvaney of South
Carolina,
who like many House
Republicans hoped for more after the party
assumed full control of Congress.
“Tell me how it would be different if Harry
Reid were still running the place, ”
Mulvaney added, naming the Senate
Democratic leader who was booted into the
minority in November’s midterm elections.
Their party is now setting the floor schedule and calling hearings, but Republicans
are six votes short of the 60 needed to
advance most legislation, and Senate rules

House-passed legislation funding the
Homeland Security Department through
September, the end of the budget year, while
also rolling back Obama’s executive policies on immigration.
As a result, Congress appears to be at a
stalemate on the issue, leaving Republicans
with only a few options: Pass a short-term
extension of current funding levels, fold and
strip the immigration language opposed by
Democrats from the bill, or let the

against a school sparked public
outrage and cries for greater security.
The attack in the city of
Peshawar wounded more than 45
people, according to Mian
Mohammad Saeed, the chief of
operations for the Peshawar
police.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the violence.
There were varying accounts of
how many attackers carried out the
assault. The militants released a
video showing three attackers
while the head of the provincial
police, Nasir Durrani, said four or
five attackers were involved.

The attackers entered the mosque
from a building next door that was
under construction, he said. They
jumped over an outer wall into the
mosque courtyard.
One person then blew himself
up, creating a diversion so the
other attackers could enter the
mosque, Durrani said. He said at
least three attackers died in the
violence — two by blowing themselves up, and a third was killed by
worshippers at the mosque.
“People here showed great
courage. They grabbed one of the
attackers from his neck, and he
couldn’t detonate (his explosives), and he was shot and
killed,” Durrani added.
Authorities were still examining the scene, and Durrani did not
say what happened to any of the
remaining attackers.
Some worshippers who fled the
mosque reported that at least some
of the attackers were wearing security uniforms.
“The prayer was about to end
when a big bang happened, followed by dust and smoke. I have
seen amid the smoke that one guy
dressed in a police uniform was firing shots and then there was
another blast,” said one of the
wounded, 22-year-old Syed Javed
Hasan, speaking from his hospital bed.

worked for the U.N. Department of
Safety and Security, according to a
statement released by the United
Nations. Secretary-General Ban
Ki-moon condemned the attack
and urged Pakistani authorities,
“to redouble their efforts to protect religious and ethnic monitories and to combat terrorism in all
its forms,” the statement said.
In
Washington,
State
Department spokeswoman Jen
Psaki said the U.S. was saddened
by the attack and stands in solidar-

ity with the government and people of Pakistan in confronting
extremist violence.
A spokesman for the Pakistani
Taliban, Mohamad Khurasani, said
the attack was in revenge for the
execution of one of their members
by the Pakistani government.
This is the same group that
claimed responsibility for a horrific attack on a school, also in
Peshawar, on Dec. 16 that left 150
people dead, almost all of them
students.

The violence horrified Pakistan
and led to cries that more needed to
be done to combat militants. The
military stepped up operations in
the rugged tribal areas bordering
Afghanistan, and the government
lifted a ban on executions in terrorism-related cases.
But despite these efforts attacks
continue.
On Jan. 30, militants targeted a
Shiite mosque in the southern city
of Shikarpur, killing at least 59
people.

Ukraine cease-fire deadline provokes bitter last-gasp battle

Debaltseve, which remains the
town’s only land link with the
rest of government-controlled
territory.
The deadline for the warring
sides to halt hostilities is Sunday
at one minute after midnight.
Interfax-Ukraine news agency
quoted Petro Mekhed, Ukraine’s
deputy defense minister, as saying that separatist forces had
been tasked with hoisting their
flags over Debaltseve, as well as
the key port city of Mariupol,
before the cease-fire takes hold.
Military spokesman Andriy
Lysenko said 11 soldiers have
been killed and 40 wounded
across eastern Ukraine since the
agreement was reached in the
Belarusian capital, Minsk. At
least eight civilians also have
died in government-controlled
territory, regional authorities
loyal to Kiev said, while the
rebels said seven civilians were
killed in artillery attacks on the

separatist-held cities of Luhansk
and Horlivka.
Shells landed Friday as far as
Artemivsk, a government-held
town 25 miles behind the front
line. Associated Press reporters
saw the body of a child killed
after rocket fire hit a kindergarten there, and regional officials said the child and one other
civilian died in the attack.
In recent days, separatist fighters have nearly completely encircled Ukrainian
forces
in
Debaltseve, where all but a few
thousand civilians have fled the
fighting.
Ukraine
says
Debaltseve
should remain in government
control under the terms of a
September peace deal. A copy of
that agreement leaked to
Ukrainian media shows the town
lying on the government’s side
of the line of division agreed by
both the rebels and Ukrainian
officials.

Greece, creditors open to compromise, deal still far off

Berlin measles traced to

Around the world

BERLIN — A spike of measles
infections in Berlin has been traced
to unvaccinated refugees, but at
least two cases appear to have come
from the United States, authorities
in the German capital said Friday.
Berlin has recorded 347 cases of
measles since the start of the year,
more than twice the number it had
during all of 2014.
Officials believe the outbreak
started with a child asylum seeker
from Bosnia, because many subsequent infections among refugees
were genetically linked.
“We consider this child to be the
index case, because the measles
virus this child had is identical to
the ones that followed,” said Dr.
Dirk Werber of Berlin’s state
health office.

ATHENS, Greece — Signs that
Greece and its European creditors
are open to compromise boosted
market hopes on Friday that the
sides can reach a deal to save the
country from bankruptcy. But any
agreement will likely take time,
with both sides pressing hard for
concessions.
After a turbulent week, in which
investors feared Athens’ demands
to rewrite its bailout terms would
result in an impasse that could
push Greece out of the euro, markets were reassured by leaders’
promises to talk.

The main Athens stock index
rose 4.5 percent in late trading
while the Stoxx 50 index of eurozone shares was 1 percent higher.
“I think there is the will for an
agreement,” Greece’s top government aide and cabinet member
Nikos Pappas said in a radio interview.
How long that might take is
unclear, though Greece will need
some sort of deal by Feb. 28, after
which its bailout program ends.
Without support, it faces the
prospect of bankruptcy and an exit
from the euro — a worst-case scenario both sides want to avoid as it
would devastate Greece’s economy
and roil global markets.
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’

ARTEMIVSK,
Ukraine —
Russian-backed
separatists
mounted a vicious assault Friday
in eastern Ukraine ahead of a
weekend cease-fire deadline,
pummeling a strategic railway
hub with wave upon wave of
shelling in a last-minute grab for
territory. At least 26 people were
killed across the region.
The fiercest confrontations
focused on the government-held
town of Debaltseve, a key transport center that has been on the
receiving end of dozens of
artillery and rocket salvos in the
24-hour period after the peace
deal was sealed Thursday by the
leaders of Russia, Ukraine,
Germany and France.
Associated Press reporters
observed intense shelling Friday
along the highway north of

new left-wing government held its
first meetings this week with
European Union leaders and
finance ministers, sticking to its
position that the bailout deal
should be renegotiated.
Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the head
of the eurogroup of finance ministers, will chair another meeting
Monday. He agreed to immediately
restart technical-level talks
between Athens and lenders, but
cautioned that finding a solution
palatable to all would not be easy.
“It is still very complicated
because it is always the case that
you can only spend money if you
have it and they want a lot but
have very little money and that’s a
problem for Greece,” he said.

Israeli house strikes
killed mostly civilians
RAFAH, Gaza Strip — The
youngest to die was a 4-day-old
girl, the oldest a 92-year-old man.
They were among at least 844
Palestinians killed as a result of
airstrikes on Gaza homes during
Israel’s summer war with the
Islamic militant group, Hamas.
Under the rules of war, homes are
protected civilian sites unless used
for military purposes. Israel says
it attacked only legitimate targets,
alleging militants used the houses
to hide weapons, fighters and
command centers. Palestinians
say Israel’s warplanes often struck
without regard for civilians.

Stocks that moved substantially or traded heavily Friday on the New

Higher ad sales and hawking the rights to its shows boosted the media
company’s fourth-quarter sales.

NEW YORK — A slight gain was
enough to push the stock market to a
record high Friday.
Stocks climbed as a rebound in oil
prices pushed energy stocks higher. A
report showing faster-than-forecast
growth in Europe at the end of last
year also boosted investor sentiment.
Investors were also picking over
the latest earnings news. CBS gained
after strong advertising revenue
boosted
its
earnings.
V. F.
Corporation, a clothing company
whose brands include Vans, Wrangler
and Timberland, jumped after giving
an upbeat outlook for the year.
Stocks have surged in February,
rebounding from a January slump, as
recovering oil prices have boosted
energy stocks. Growing corporate
earnings and the announcement of
more stimulus from the European
Central Bank to boost growth in the
region have also helped turn around
investor sentiment this month.
“Stability seems to be coming
back,” said JJ Kinahan, chief strategist at TD Ameritrade. “Overall, I
think the market is going to go higher ... but it may be a case of two steps
forward, one step back.”
The Standard & Poor’s 500 rose
8. 51 points, or 0. 4 percent, to

2,096.99. That surpassed the previous record close of 2,090.57 set Dec.
29.
The Dow Jones industrial average
climbed 46.97 points, or 0.3 percent,
to 18,019.35. The index is still 35
points short of its all-time high. The
Nasdaq composite gained 36. 22
points, or 0.8 percent, to 4,893.84.
About three-quarters of the companies in the S&P 500 index have now
reported results for the fourth quarter,
and earnings for the period are projected to rise by 7.5 percent. While
that is a decline from growth of 10.4
percent in the previous quarter, it’s
better than analysts were expecting at
the start of December.
On Friday, V. F. Corporation was
one of the biggest gainers in the S&P
500. The company’s stock rose
$4.26, or 6 percent, to $75.26 after it
said that it was expecting “meaningful growth” in all of its markets
worldwide. That’s despite challenges
it faces from a strengthening dollar.
CBS was another winner on Friday.
The media company gained $2.06,
or 3. 6 percent, to $59. 83 after it
reported earnings late Thursday that
were slightly better than Wall Street
analysts had been expecting. The
company got a boost from higher
advertising revenues, led by the
broadcast of “Thursday Night

Insurer Anthem offers several
layers of identity theft protection
By Tom Murphy
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

INDIANAPOLIS — Anthem Inc.
is offering several levels of free
identity theft protection to current
and former customers after hackers
broke into a database storing
information for about 80 million
people.
The nation’s second-largest
health insurer said Friday that for
two years it will provide credit
monitoring, identity theft repair
assistance if someone experiences
fraud, and identity protection
designed specifically for children.
The services are available to all
current and former customers since
2004.

The Blue Cross-Blue Shield
insurer said last week that hackers
evaded several security layers to
reach its database sometime after
Dec. 10 and before Jan. 27, when a
computer system administrator
discovered outsiders were using
his credentials to log into the system.
The intruders gained access to
what cybersecurity experts believe
is a particularly dangerous combination of information: Names,
birthdates, email address, employment details, Social Security numbers, incomes and street addresses.
Investigators have found no evidence that medical or credit card
information was breached.
Anthem Inc. representatives

have said they didn’t know how
many people were affected by the
attack, but the number was probably in the “tens of millions.”
The Identity Theft Resource
Center says the attack was easily
the largest it has recorded against a
health care company. The nonprofit monitors identity theft and
helps people affected by it.
Identity Theft Resource Center
CEO Eva Velasquez said the
Anthem breach may be more
potent than recent hacks of retailers like Home Depot because of the
type of information in Anthem’s
database. Social Security numbers
are particularly dangerous because
they can be used to file false tax
returns and open fake credit lines.

associated with the midterm elections.
This month’s sharp gains are making some analysts cautious on stocks.
The price-earnings ratio for next
year’s earnings for S&P 500 companies is at 17.1, the highest level in
more than a decade. The measure is a
gauge of how much investors are willing to pay for a company’s earnings.
“Watch those valuation levels very
carefully, ” said James Liu, Global
Market Strategist for J. P. Morgan
Asset Management.
Rather than tracking the broader
market investors should focus on certain sectors, Liu says. At the moment
he favors so-called consumer discretionary stocks, which should benefit
as hiring picks and consumers get
more money in their pockets from
lower gas prices.
ConAgra was one of the biggest
losers in the S&P 500 on Friday.
The food company, whose brands
include Swiss Miss hot chocolate mix
and Slim Jim beef jerky, dropped
$1.59, or 4.4 percent, to $34.83 after
cutting its earnings outlook for the
year late Thursday. ConAgra blamed
the impact of a stronger dollar and
intense competition for its Private
Brands unit.
While energy stocks have been
rebounding this year, one of last
year’s biggest gainers is this year’s
biggest decliner.

the Peninsula Athletic League North Division.
“This was a big win for the team,” Terra
Nova senior guard Gerald Colvin said. “We
haven’t beaten Half Moon Bay in I don’t
know how long. So, this was a big win for us.
It was a big win for the community. Now it’s
off the (Central Coast Section) playoffs. Let’s
get it.”
In fact, Terra Nova hadn’t defeated Half
Moon Bay in over five years, since Jan. 9,
2010. But it’s tough to imagine any game in
the history of the rivalry shaking up the

dynamic of the CCS playoffs more than this.
The Cougars could have punched their ticket
to the CCS Open Division with a win, but now
that scenario is very much in doubt.
“This is going to be seriously impactful
because this will probably knock us out of
Open,” Half Moon Bay head coach Rich
Forslund said. “That would be my guess.”

It was a game of destiny for Terra Nova and
for its unlikely hero Eric Dale.
The 6-1 senior forward checked into the
game late in the fourth quarter — having
scored just 22 points on the season entering
into play Friday — only to make the shot of
his life. With four seconds remaining in the
regular season, Dale buried a long-range
jumper to send the Tigers (11-1 in PAL North,
18-5 overall) to an improbable 46-45 victory

over archrival Half Moon Bay boys’ basketball team, on the Cougars’ home court no less.
“[Dale] has been with us ever since Day 1,”
Terra Nova head coach Kenny Milch said. “He
was with us all summer long when we went
through those different situations. He hung in
there. For him to make a shot like that — he’s
just a great kid. He’s a 4.4 honors student. And
I’m really happy for him.”

The Aragon boys’ soccer team
ran roughshod through the
Peninsula Athletic League’s Ocean
Division the first half of the season, going unbeaten in establishing itself as the team to beat.
The second half, however, has
been less than smooth sailing.
“We’ve had a really difficult second half,” said Aragon coach Greg
Markoulakis. “After the first half
of the (PAL) season, they got comfortable.”
The Dons’ struggles continued
Friday as they needed a penalty
kick in second-half stoppage time
to salvage a tie against seventhplace Capuchino.
Aragon’s tie puts its PAL Ocean
Division record at 7-2-4, good for
25 points. Hillsdale, which beat
Terra Nova 5-0 Friday, improved to
8-1-3, giving the Knights 27
points. The Dons now need some
help if they are to win the division
title and clinch the automatic bid to
the Central Coast Section playoffs.
Hillsdale plays San Mateo
Monday before facing Aragon in
the regular-season finale Friday.
The Dons need the Knights to
either lose to or tie the Bearcats. A
Hillsdale win Monday clinches the
league title.
“[This tie against Cap] is as bad
as a loss,” Markoulakis said.
The Dons have been plagued by
injuries and some internal strife
over the last half dozen games and
it seems to have affected its play. A
team that was knocking the ball
around and building up its offensive attack through the midfield
earlier in the season was a straightahead team against Capuchino. The
Dons were whistled for nearly a
dozen offside calls Friday.

PEBBLE BEACH — Enjoying the best
weather Pebble Beach has to offer is one
thing. Brandt Snedeker knew he had to take
advantage of it with his golf clubs, too.
Snedeker played bogey-free at Spyglass
in abundant sunshine and warmth Friday for
a 5-under 67 to share the 36-hole lead with
Matt Jones in the AT&T Pebble Beach
National Pro-Am. Jones had a 66 at
Spyglass Hill.
They were at 12-under 131, one shot ahead
of Justin Hicks, who had a 68 at Monterey
Peninsula.
John Daly, who started the second round
one shot behind and briefly was tied for the
lead when he birdied his opening hole at
Monterey Peninsula, didn’t make a birdie
over his last 11 holes and shot a 72. He
dropped into a tie for 37th and will have to
play well Saturday at Spyglass to avoid
missing the cut for the 11th straight time at
this event.
Scoring has been low, which was to be
expected with barely any breeze and enough
sunshine to make the ball go farther through
a combination of warm air and firmer than
usual fairways. The top 60 and ties make the
cut, and 60th place was at 4-under par.
Snedeker and Jones now head to Pebble
Beach, along with the celebrity rotation.
The pros’ outlook was different.
“If the greens firm up, Pebble is going to
play the hardest because they’re such small
greens,” Jones said, who won the Shell
Houston Open last year for his first PGA
Tour title. “If you’re not hitting your irons
well enough, you’re going to struggle out
there.”
Snedeker, who won at Pebble Beach two
years ago, always felt that was the key to
getting into contention and to winning.

Cavan to manage Menlo before continuing playing career
By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Fear not Menlo School baseball fans. The
Knights are still in the hands of recently
hired manager Ryan Cavan, despite his
recent signing with the Kansas City TBones of the independent American
Association.
With the departure of longtime baseball
coach and athletic director Craig Schoof,
Cavan was hired just prior to the start of the
2014-15 school year to the helm the

Knights. It was a bold
move with Cavan still in
the midst of his professional baseball career.
A 2005 graduate of
Menlo School, Cavan is
still planning to resume
his professional year
after the high school seaRyan Cavan son is finished. It will be
his eighth year of pro
ball and his second in the independent
ranks. He previously played six seasons in

the San Francisco Giants organization.
After battling injuries for several years,
Cavan said he was finally feeling healthy
heading into the 2014 season. Three weeks
into spring training with the Giants, however, Cavan was released.
“I was having a good spring training and
was finally healthy again…. I was doing
well and 20 days in, they released me,”
Cavan said. “I was really surprised and I was
wondering, ‘Do I keep playing baseball or
not?’”
Cavan immediately had offers from 15 dif-

ferent independent teams, he said. However,
he didn’t want to sign an independent deal
without fielding all his offers from affiliated teams. He checked in with the Chicago
Cubs and Oakland A’s, who were both in
close proximity to the Giants’ spring training complex in Scottsdale. Both were a nogo.
“They didn’t have any opportunities for
me at the time,” Cavan said.
After a month of deliberation, Cavan

Pavelski All-Star Game returns to New York
hat trick
leads S.J.
By Brian Mahoney

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

By John Marshall
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Overeager for a win,
the San Jose Sharks repeatedly overskated
the puck, leading to a two-goal hole.
One lucky bounce changed their fortunes.
Joe Pavelski scored on a shot that went off
a skate early in the second period and added
an empty-net goal to finish off his fourth
career hat trick, helping the Sharks end a
three-game losing streak with a 4-2 in over
the Arizona Coyotes on Friday night.
“We were overanxious maybe, trying to do
much, overcommit in some areas, and after
that it just went the other way in a hurry,”
said Pavelski, who reached the 30-goal mark
for the third time in his career. “To come out
with the goal early in the second period really set the momentum.”
The Sharks had struggled since February
started and were quickly in a hole against
Arizona, giving up a goal in the game’s
opening two minutes and another to trail 2-0
after one period.
Pavelski gave them a spark 27 seconds in
the second, when a pass through the crease
went off the skate of Arizona defenseman
Oliver Ekman-Larsson into the goal. He
added another goal in the period and San Jose
tightened up defensively the rest of the way
behind Antti Niemi, who stopped 32 shots
after allowing 12 goals the previous three
games.
Barclay Goodrow also scored to help
Sharks coach Todd McLellan reach 300 wins
in 515 career games. Anaheim’s Bruce
Boudreau is the only coach in NHL history to
reach the milestone faster, 496 games.
“It was a good comeback win, but unfortunately we put ourselves in that situation,”
McLellan said. “Not the way we wanted to
start, but I thought some of the leaders
stepped up and started to straighten some
things out.”
The Coyotes, who have been playing better over the past two weeks, got off to a great
start.
Mark Arcobello, picked up on waivers from
Pittsburgh, had a goal in his Arizona debut to
become the second player in NHL history
with a point with four teams in the same season, joining Dennis O’Brien in 1977-78.
Martin Erat also scored in the second period.
The Coyotes played a solid game after that,
but had a couple of bad bounces go against
them to lose for the third time in four games.
“I thought we battled hard, we just couldn’t
come up with that extra goal we needed,”
Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said.
The Sharks are still in solid playoff position in the Western Conference, but were
looking to get back on track after struggling
since February started.

NEW YORK — The NBA’s All-Star show has
arrived on Brrr-oadway.
After years of performing only in warmweather cities in the South and West, the midseason spectacle has come back to the bitterly cold Big Apple, where the most popular
person at the player hotel Friday may not
have been LeBron James or Stephen Curry,
but the one handing out complimentary hot
chocolates in the lobby.
Players love being in New York and can’t
wait for the curtain to rise at Madison Square
Garden on Sunday night, but the bright lights
in the big city aren’t doing anything to help
the teeth-chattering chilly temperatures down
below.
“New York is cold as hell, man. But it’s
nice, it’s cool,” Miami’s Dwyane Wade said. “I
feel like the All-Star had to be in New York one
of these years. Since I’ve been in the league,
12 years now, it hasn’t been in New York and
it’s mind-boggling that it hasn’t, but I think
it’s cool that it’s finally here. There’s just a
different vibe in New York than anywhere
else.”
Wade is injured and can’t play Sunday, but
the guys who will say it will be a special night
because it will be on one of their favorite
stages.
“It’s going to be the best All-Star Game for
me, to be able to be in the Garden,” James
said. “I love my fans back in Cleveland. I
loved my fans when I was in Miami. But if I
could have 82 regular-season games in the

Garden, you know I would, because it’s the
mecca of basketball. You get a great feeling
when you walk in there because there is so
much history. It’s going to be fun.”
The game hasn’t been in New York since
1998, Michael Jordan’s last with the Chicago
Bulls and the first of many for Kobe Bryant
and Tim Duncan. The NBA’s preference has
been places where it’s warm in February, and
cities such as Houston and New Orleans have
hosted it multiple times in recent years.
But when the Garden underwent a three-year
renovation and Barclays Center in Brooklyn
was built, both with $1 billion price tags, the
league decided the venues would share the

Nets, with the game set for the Knicks’ home
court.
Players arrived to find painfully cold temperatures in the teens, feeling much lower

when the forecast was for a low near zero
degrees. Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins,
who usually spends All-Star weekend back
home in Alabama, was still wearing his winter
hat when he conducted his media day interviews in a hotel ballroom.
The Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony wasn’t worried about showing players around the city

cold,” he added.

Not a lot of change in college softball
By Cliff Brunt
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OKLAHOMA CITY — Defending national
champion Florida is No. 1 in the softball
polls.
Last year’s national runner-up, rival
Alabama, is lurking.
The Crimson Tide, the defending
Southeastern Conference champions, are
No. 3 in the USA Today/NFCA poll and No.
4 in the ESPN.com/USA Softball poll.
Haylie McCleney is Alabama’s top
returnee. The returning first-team NFCA AllAmerican entered the season holding school
records for batting average (.454) and onbase percentage (. 548). Alabama coach
Patrick Murphy said McCleney is the best
outfielder in college softball.
“Unbelievable instincts,” Murphy said.
“If she was a male, she’d be making millions of dollars. She’d be playing center
field for the Yankees. She’s that good. She’s
a five-tool player. There’s not many in softball.”
Alabama will need to replace All-America
pitcher Jackie Traina, a four-year starter.
Leslie Jury, Sydney Littlejohn and freshman
Alexis Osorio have proven to be capable
replacements early. Littlejohn threw a perfect game in her first start, an 8-0 win over
Eastern Kentucky on Feb. 6.
The Southeastern Conference should be a
grind, with Florida, Alabama and Kentucky,

which is No. 5 in the USA Today and No. 6
in the ESPN poll, among the national
favorites. Most of the conference’s teams
are ranked.
“It’s been unbelievable to see the
progress of the league,” said Murphy, in his
17th year as Alabama’s head coach. “I think
this year is probably the deepest. It’s kind
of like SEC football and SEC baseball and
Big 12 basketball. There’s just so many
good players, so many good coaches all
across the board. It’s so much fun to coach
in this league.”
Florida lost pitcher Hannah Rogers, the
most outstanding player of the Women’s
College World Series, but the Gators lose
just one position starter from the championship team.
Second baseman Kelsey Stewart leads the
way. The two-time first-team All-American
entered the season with a career .408 batting average, the best mark in school history.
Lauren Haeger will step in as the main
pitcher. She was a first-team All-American
in 2013 as a utility player. Last season, she
ranked second in the SEC by holding opponents to a .179 batting average.
Oregon reached the Final Four last year
and is No. 2 in both polls. The winning
pitchers for all 56 of the Ducks’ victories
last season are back. First-team All-America
pitcher Cheridan Hawkins returns after finishing 35-6 with a 1.66 earned run average

expert on frozen tundras.
“It’s cold, but Milwaukee is COLD,” he said.
“I think Milwaukee is colder than Chicago.
Seriously, when I was in Milwaukee, there was
a couple of days I thought about not playing
basketball ever again. I didn’t want to walk to
class it was so cold. I was like, I don’t know if
this life is for me. But this is cold, but it ain’t
got nothing on Milwaukee cold.”
Still, Wade said, he would play outdoors as a
kid because he loved the game, just as kids
were doing outside a community center where
James, Curry and Commissioner Adam Silver
appeared at an NBA Cares clinic, one of the
100 the league conducted Friday around the
city’s five brrr-oughs.
Silver had said earlier this week the weather
was always the biggest All-Star concern for
the league.
“I’m very happy so far that while it’s a little
colder than I would have liked, most importantly we don’t have a lot of snow, and the latest I’ve heard is that the airports are clear and
people are able to get around easy in the city,”
he said after the event.
The game will be a vintage New York show,
featuring performances by the Rockettes and
some Broadway musical actors. Anthony is
battling a knee injury that could end his season after the All-Star break, but he’s continued
playing to take part in a weekend he says New
Yorkers will never forget.
“This is one of the cities that I think most
guys look forward to coming to,” added
Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge. “It’s a fun city.
There’s always a lot going on. It’s the fashion
capital. I think guys love coming here.”

last year. Karissa Hovinga, the team’s No. 2
pitcher last year, also returns. Outfielder
Janie Takeda, a second-team All-American
last year, also returns. She hit .388, scored
56 runs and had 40 RBIs in 2014.
Oklahoma is No. 3 in the ESPN poll and
No. 4 in the USA Today. First baseman
Lauren Chamberlain is nearing the all-time
record for career home runs. She entered the
season with 72, 18 shy of the total former
Olympic gold medalist Stacey Nuveman hit
for UCLA during a college career that ended
in 2002.
Chamberlain was a third-team AllAmerican last season, despite missing 23
games with a back injury, in part because
she had the best slugging percentage (.950)
in NCAA history.
Third baseman Shelby Pendley, a firstteam All-American last year, also pitches.
Freshman pitcher Paige Parker already has
thrown a perfect game this season.
Florida State entered the season ranked
No. 5 in both polls, but has fallen to sixth
in the USA Today poll after a loss to
Kentucky. First-team All-American pitcher
Lacey Waldrop returns for the Seminoles.
She led the nation with 38 wins last year and
was third nationally with a 1. 13 ERA.
Shortstop Maddie O’Brien, another firstteam All-American, also is back. She led the
nation with 83 RBIs last season, and was
second in home runs (24) and slugging percentage (.942).

waning seconds. After the Cougars led 18-14
at the end of the first quarter, they went on a 60 run midway through the second quarter
sparked by a dramatic slam dunk by forward
Case DuFrane and followed by back-to-back
buckets by center Austin Hilton.
As a result, Half Moon Bay took a 31-23
lead into halftime. But in the halftime locker room, Kenny Milch told his Tigers they
had the game in reach. He said his instructions were to whittle the lead down to four
points by the end of the third quarter and
that’s precisely what they did.
“I said, ‘Once you get it there, all you’ve
got to do is hang around and the magic is
going to come,’” Kenny Milch said.
It sure did.
Half Moon Bay held just a 38-34 lead heading into the final quarter. The Cougars had
several golden opportunities to break it
open, but shot horridly in the third quarter,
hitting just 2 of 9 from the field while converting just 1 of 8 from the free-throw line.
“That affected us big time,” Forslund said.
“You’re not going to win any tight games.
Too many mistakes. You had opportunities
after that. We had different guys in line;
nobody could step up and make a play. That’s
the bottom line.”
In the fourth quarter, Half Moon Bay
quickly added to its lead by converting on
back-to-back steals — one by DuFrane and
the other by Hilton. But the Tigers came
roaring back when Jared Milch drained a 3pointer en route to scoring a game-high 19
points to close the lead to 42-40.
Half Moon Bay guard Jake Salinero
answered right back with a 3-pointer to bump

If one didn’t know any better, Friday’s
game in San Bruno appeared to be a game
between two evenly matched squads as the
Mustangs’ play belied their low position in
the standings. Capuchino outshot Aragon
14-11. They took it to the Dons in the
opening minutes, having a shot clang off

the lead to 45-40. But a pair of Ben Vidali free
throws followed by a tremendous drive to the
basket by senior Gabe Vargas closed the lead
to 45-44 with 1:30 remaining in the game.
The Cougars had a chance on the opposite
end to convert on an offensive rebound, but the
put-back off the glass was off its mark, giving
Terra Nova the possession that changed the
course of the game — and the season.

“Our kids have shown some resiliency and
they wanted it just as bad as the Cougars,”
Kenny Milch said.
Dale’s shot wasn’t a designed play
though. According to Colvin, in the preceding timeout, the play called for Colvin
to take it to the hoop. But on the court,
the senior team captain didn’t have an
open look from under the hoop, so he

dished it all the way outside to Terra
Nova’s unlikely hero to crush it from just
inside the 3-point arc.
“It wasn’t drawn up like that,” Colvin
said. “My coach called an isolation play for
me and I couldn’t get nothing. So, I just
drove to the basket and I found Eric Dale
wide open. So I kicked him the ball and the
rest is history.”

“This is the second-best game we’ve
played (this season), ” said Capuchino
coach Dave Linton. “They’re finally
becoming a cohesive group. It’s been
climbing a hill.”
Capuchino (2-8-3 PAL Ocean) got a pair
of second-half goals from sophomore striker Ruben Romero, one coming on a penalty
kick and another in the run of play.
“We could have done better, but we’re satisfied,” Romero said.
Cap showed it would not be a pushover
when, in the second minute of the game,
Alex Tanaka whipped a cross into the
Aragon penalty box and found Vinnicius
Silva, who hit a one-timer on the volley
— only to see it ricochet off the crossbar.
That near-miss energized the Mustangs.
“It gave us confidence because we knew

we could attack,” Romero said.
Aragon, to its credit, came right back and
had two golden scoring chances go by the
wayside in the 10th minute. The first opportunity came when Alexander Mellado sent a
perfect through ball into the Capuchino
penalty box, with Mustangs’ goalkeeper
Evan Ramos smothering the shot.
Moments later, Michael Lanthier was denied
by Ramos.
The Mustangs had another chance in the
28th minute as they worked a give-and-go
inside the Aragon penalty area, but Silva’s
shot went well over the top.
The Dons took a 1-0 lead just before halftime when they were awarded a penalty kick
in the 36th minute that Mellado buried low
into the left corner.
The Mustangs tied the score 16 minutes
into the second half when Romero was

taken down from behind to draw a penalty
kick, which he put into the low left corner
as well.
Aragon’s best second-half scoring chance
came in the 66th minute when Gio Sazo,
who had an empty net, headed a ball wide.
It appeared Capuchino scored the game
winner when Romero took a pass from
Oscar Sanchez on the edge of the penalty
box. Romero sent a low worm burner that
slipped just inside the far right post to put
the Mustangs up 2-1 in the 74th minute.
A sloppy play in the penalty box by the
Capuchino defense, however, gave the Dons
the opportunity to tie the score in stoppage
time on their second penalty kick of the
game, which Mellado converted as well.
“We had destiny in our hands, ”
Markoulakis said. “We now need help to win
the title.”

Ligety wins giant slalom again at worlds
By Pat Graham
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEAVER CREEK, Colo. — Ted Ligety’s
mood in the starting gate? Tranquil, of all
things.
This was his hill, after all. Didn’t matter if
he trailed his main rival. Make a clean run,
a Ted Ligety-esque run, and just see what
transpires, he reminded himself.
So Ligety did — a remarkable, mistakefree final run that slid the American right
into the record books. Ligety stormed back
from a first-run deficit Friday to become the
only man to win three straight giant slalom
titles at the world championships.
Behind Marcel Hirscher of Austria by 0.24
seconds after the morning run, Ligety found
speed down the course where others couldn’t
and finished in a time of 2 minutes, 34.16
seconds. Hirscher was second, 0.45 seconds
behind, and Alexis Pinturault of France
earned the bronze.

“To be able to come
through and pull it off is
awesome,” said the 30year-old Ligety, who’s
from Park City, Utah.
Like there was ever a
doubt, even as Ligety
trailed. Well, maybe a little.
See, Hirscher won
Ted Ligety
three straight World Cup
GS races entering this competition. And
while this is Ligety’s course, a place where
he’s won five World Cup GS races, including
last December, Hirscher seemed well-positioned to spring the upset.
Or so it appeared anyway. But races like
this are why Ligety’s fellow skiers often
refer to him as “Mr. GS.” He’s cool under
pressure.
“Ted was, today, in his own league,” said
Germany’s Felix Neureuther, who finished
fourth, 1.10 seconds behind Ligety. “He’s
amazing.”

With this win, Ligety, the Olympic GS
champ from Sochi, cements his name
among the legends of the sport. The only
other men to win three straight world titles
in any discipline are Sweden’s Ingemar
Stenmark (slalom, ‘78, ‘80, ‘82) and
Norway’s Kjetil Andre Aamodt (combined,
‘97 ‘99, ‘01).
Impressed to be among such esteemed
company?
“I’m not somebody who worries about the
statistics when I’m doing it,” said Ligety,
who won the 2011 world GS title in
Germany and again two years ago in Austria,
which was part of his three gold-medal performance. “It’s cool to be able to achieve
what I’ve achieved and be able to reflect
back on those things later.”
It took the ninth race into these championships, but the Americans finally captured
that elusive first gold medal. The U.S. team
has a good chance at another medal on
Saturday as Olympic slalom champion
Mikaela Shiffrin competes in her signature

event. Meanwhile, the Austrians bumped its
medal total to nine, five more than the U.S.
Pretty much everyone figured some combination of Ligety, Hirscher and Pinturault
would be on the podium. They usually are.
That’s the way it was at Beaver Creek in
December, when Ligety won, Pinturault was
second and Hirscher third.
“I think all the guys tried to push real hard
today because after the first run it was really
tight,” said Pinturault, who’s been sick this
week. “But finally it was still Marcel, Ted
and me.”
The fifth racer out of the gate in the final
run, Ligety didn’t make a single miscue on
terrain that suits his style of skiing so well.
He pumped his fists again and again after
finishing his run, knowing his time was
going to be difficult to beat.
Pinturault couldn’t match it. Neither could
Neureuther or Italy’s Roberto Nani.
The only racer standing in his way was
Hirscher. But Hirscher steadily lost time
throughout the course.

Family-owned California ski resorts struggle from drought
By Scott Smith
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FRESNO — With California entering its
fourth drought year, even some big resorts
with millions of dollars in modern snowmaking equipment don’t have all their lifts
running.
The midsized and family-owned resorts
struggling most had hoped to reopen for the
Presidents Day holiday, traditionally the
year’s biggest weekend for skiing.
A recent winter storm that washed over the
state originated in the tropics and dropped
more rain than the much-needed snow. While
any wet weather is welcome in California,
the storm didn’t end the drought or put all the
dormant resorts back in business.

“It’s kind of a sad state here in California.”
— Janet Tuttle, owner Donner Ski Ranch

“We’re basically the canary in the coal
mine,” said Janet Tuttle, who owns Donner
Ski Ranch northwest of Lake Tahoe and one
of about seven resorts forced to close midseason. “It’s kind of a sad state here in
California.”
A stingy snowfall had left Donner’s mountain face marked with brown patches of
exposed dirt and rock. Tuttle and her husband, Marshall, closed the resort’s six chairlifts and two beginner runs by mid-January.
They reopened Wednesday with a little boost
from the recent storm, hoping to keep the
lifts running this weekend.

She worried about more warm weather in
the forecast. “I’m not very happy about
that,” she said.
California’s 27 resorts — and two in
neighboring Nevada — make up the nation’s
second-most-popular destination for skiers
and snowboarders after Colorado, said Bob
Roberts, executive director of the California
Ski Industry Association.
China Peak Mountain Resort east of
Fresno was among the latest ski areas forced
to suspend business, following others in
Northern California such as Donner Ski
Ranch, Dodge Ridge and Yosemite’s Badger

Pass. Mt. Baldy Ski Lifts near Los Angeles
also closed.
Homewood Mountain Resort at Lake
Tahoe suspended skiing early this month but
also plans to open for the Presidents Day
weekend with a few inches of fresh snow
from recent storms.

U.S. women MENLO
beat England

Alex Morgan is back.
The American forward scored in the 25th
minute in her second start since returning from
an ankle injury, and the U.S. women defeated
England 1-0 on Friday night in an exhibition
game.
Morgan got her 50th goal in 79 international appearances, becoming the third-fastest
American woman to reach
the mark behind Michelle
Akers (49 games) and
Abby Wambach (64).
The goal ended a 217minute scoring drought for
the United States, which
played its second game of
the year in preparing for
Alex Morgan this year’s Women’s World
Cup — and its second
without suspended goalkeeper Hope Solo. The
Americans had won just one of their previous
five matches, including a 2-0 loss to France
last weekend.
England’s Jodie Taylor, Morgan’s Portland
Thorns teammate, appeared to even the match
in the 56th minute but was ruled offside.
The game was played before 14,369 fans at
Milton Keynes, about 50 miles northwest.
England was coming off a 3-0 loss to Germany
in late November that drew 45,000 fans to
London’s Wembley Stadium.
Morgan injured her left ankle last October in
group stage play of the CONCACAF Women’s
Championship, which served as qualifying for
the World Cup. She hurt the same ankle in
training the previous year, and ended up missing nine games for the Thorns last season.
Morgan also started Sunday in Lorient, when
the second-ranked U.S. team fell 2-0 to No. 3
France. It was the first time in 17 matches the
French defeated the Americans.

decided on an independent deal. He signed

Cavan batted .309 for Southern Illinois,
earning a spot as the starting shortstop for
the Frontier League East Division All-Star
team. He also helped the Miners to an East
Division title.
“It was a great season,” Cavan said.
Then the trade carousel started to turn for
the 27-year-old Cavan. After the season, he
had his contract purchased by the Wichita
Wingnuts of the American Association.
From there, he was traded to the Kansas City
T-Bones, helmed by manager John
Massarelli.
Cavan said he and Massarelli had a productive telephone conversation upon his
being acquired by the T-Bones.

like it comes down to how you play Pebble for
me the last two days,” he said. “When the
weather is good, you need to be able to get
after it and shoot a low round. And the way the
scores are right now and the weather forecast
over the weekend, it’s going to take ... somewhere around 20-under par to win this golf
tournament. So I’ve got to look at 7- to 10under par the next couple days to win. Can’t
take the foot off the gas pedal.”
FedEx Cup champion Billy Horschel, who

Jason Day, who wasn’t ever sure he would
play.
Day said he took his son to the emergency

THE DAILY JOURNAL

“I told him I have an obligation to Menlo
School and when I’m done with that obligation I’m going to go out and play,” Cavan
said.
The final day of the regular season for
Menlo is May 2. The Central Coast Section
playoffs generally extend through the
month of May. Opening day for the
American Association is May 21.
“We talked and we had a good conversation,” Cavan said. “I’m really excited to get
to go play for him. It’s going to be fun.”
Cavan will also follow in the tradition
another former Menlo infielder to play for a
legendary ex-major league second baseman.
Last season, former Menlo star Kenny
Diekroeger played for assistant coach Glenn
Hubbard — formerly of the Atlanta Braves
— with the Kansas City Royals High-A
affiliate Lexington Legends.
This season, just 600 miles west of
Lexington, Cavan will play for the T-Bones
first-base coach, five-time American League
All-Star Frank White.
As for his inaugural season with Menlo,
Cavan is already talking about sustaining

the legacy of Schoof, his former coach and
27-year manager of the Knights.
“Craig is mentoring me and giving me
help with my transition to becoming a head
coach,” Cavan said. “I’m very thankful for
the help he’s given me throughout the
process. … Class and sportsmanship lasts
forever, and I think with me taking over the
program, his legacy is going to live on.”
Cavan is also keen on invigorating the
rivalry between Menlo and neighboring
Sacred Heart Prep. Cavan and first-year
Gators manager Anthony Granato have
become friends during the offseason for the
past two years while hitting at the same
Belmont batting cages.
This season, Menlo and SHP will play
three times in the regular season, starting
with the nonleague opener Feb. 28 at SHP
before the two start Peninsula Athletic
League Bay Division play March 25 with
the first of a two-game series.
“The kids love it,” Cavan said. “They get
to play their rival. It’s going to be a lot of
fun for them because they get to compete.”

room with a stomach ailment, which then was
passed to his wife and then to him. The
Australian wasn’t sure he could play 30 minutes before his tee time, and then he posted a
62 at Monterey Peninsula.
That put him only three shots out of the
lead, along with Jim Furyk (70) and Nick
Watney (69), who both played at Spyglass.
No one needs to get it in gear like Snedeker.
When he won at Pebble Beach two years
ago, he moved to a career-high No. 4 in the
world, the highest-ranked American behind
Tiger Woods. He now is one spot behind
Woods in the world ranking, except that’s not
a good thing. Snedeker is No. 63 and can’t
count on the tournaments he regularly plays,
particularly the Masters.
He had only four top 10s all of last year and
fell out of the top 50. After missing the cut in
his 2015 debut at the Humana Challenge,
Snedeker has taken baby steps in Phoenix and
San Diego and appears to be hitting his stride.
“It’s no fun not being eligible for the
Masters and not playing World Golf

Championships and stuff like that,” Snedeker
said. “So it’s a huge motivating factor, not
that I need any more to be motivated for, but I
definitely want to make sure that I qualify for
the Masters and Match Play and WGCs and all
that kind of stuff. And to do that, I need to play
good. So it’s nobody to blame but myself. I
need to get out there and get it done.”
It helps when his putter is cooperating,
always the best part of his game. That’s what
he has been working on the most, believing
that everything revolves around his short
game. Now he feels like he is putting the way
he should, and he put his old putter back in the
bag in November after replacing it toward the
second half of the season.
“Sometimes you got to use some harsh
words with the putter if it’s not paying attention and bench them, leave them in a hot
trunk for a while and let them know that they
can be replaced,” he said with a smile. “And
luckily, she understood and got back into
working form.”

Sierra Nevada this January received

In an unsettling trend, four of
California’s 10 driest Januaries
have occurred since 2007, said
Anderson, adding that several days
recently at Lake Tahoe have reached
the mid-60s. He spent last weekend
with his family in the Sierra’s
Donner Summit, where it rained.
“When it’s raining at the top of
the mountain, it’s awful hard to
build a snowpack,” he said.
Other Western states have gotten
their share of snow this year, said
Michael Berry, president of the
National Ski Areas Association,
noting favorable skiing in
Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and
Montana. He said storms have hit
Washington, but the warm temperatures pushed the snow level to
higher elevations.
Meanwhile, much of California
remains locked in extreme drought.
Tim Cohee, owner of China Peak
Mountain Resort, thought he could
keep the lifts running through
Presidents Day weekend. But Cohee
said that only the beginner skiing
hill and a slope for sleds and innertubes would be open for the holiday.
China Peak has snow-making
machines, but the warm weather
gave Cohee few opportunities to
turn them on. The recent rain made

the mountain blotchy, so he suspended skiing. Cohee said China
Peak and other small resorts are facing serious financial hardship.
“Name a business that could go
through four years of this,” said
Cohee, who has owned and managed ski resorts in California for 22
years. “I’ve seen a couple wimpy
years before, but nothing like this
— nothing even close.”
At the large Heavenly Lake
Tahoe, a little more than half of the
ski runs were open Tuesday, but
spokeswoman Rachael Woods of

long and well-groomed, providing
skiers and boarders with great conditions.
The runs are fully open at
Kirkwood Mountain Resort, owned
by the same company, and one of
California’s highest in elevation,
said Woods, adding that Kirkwood,
Heavenly and Northstar all received
well over a foot of snow from the
recent storms.
Cold overnight temperatures at
the high elevation ski areas have
allowed for making snow, she said,
adding, “There are many resorts
that are doing well.”

BEER
Continued from page 1
Goose Island Beer Company, in Illinois earlier in the week.
“This is definitely an exciting time for beer
in this area,” said Jacqueline Chesson, a bartender at Grape & Grain.
Chesson and her colleague Joey Peralta said
they both began working at the establishment
after spending time on the other side of the
bar, learning to appreciate the nuances of beer
culture.
The experience of Peralta and Chesson is
not unique, said Adam Simpson, owner of
Grape & Grain.
He has seen high-quality ale convert many
novice beer drinkers previously only familiar
with Budweiser and Coors into experts and
advocates.
Simpson said the appeal of offering a unique
beer that offers complex flavors and new
tastes can be enough to intrigue even the most
risk averse drinkers.
And he prides himself on running an establishment that offers a constant rotation of
kegs.
“There’s an opportunity to try something
new every time,” he said.
Simpson said he enjoys seeing the large
turnouts associated with San Francisco Beer
Week festivities, because he knows the
patrons will appreciate what is on tap.
“I’m excited to see the place packed for the
right reasons,” he said.
That same enthusiasm for good beer has
expanded into other establishments that built
their reputation for appreciating the craft of
other fine drinks.
H29 Coffee and Wine Bar in Burlingame said
the event they hosted Feb. 12 was inspired in
part by patrons who wished to see the beer list
expanded.
Jennifer Hancox, general manager at H29,
said many customers began to ask for more
craft beers recently as the culture has gained
momentum.
“It’s a pretty aware, well-traveled crowd,
so they already know about a lot about the

beers,” she said.
Half Moon Bay Brewing Company hosted a
tap takeover at H29 on Thursday, pouring four
different varieties of beer that are not often
available outside of the brewery’s coastal
headquarters.
Hancox said the bar offered beer flights, to
give customers a chance to taste a variety of
styles and flavors without having to commit
to just one.
At the StandBy in South San Francisco,
owner Joe Marquez said the San Francisco
Beer Week events are an extension of the bar’s
modus operandi.
“We really want to call every week beer
week,” he said. “But we are going to try to
ramp it up a notch and have a good time.”
The bar hosted a variety of beer pairings
with food trucks from across the region as part
of the celebration.
Marquez said this is the third time his bar
has participated in the event, and has become
more involved a bit more each year.
He said as the beer culture becomes more celebrated, patrons are increasingly open to
experimentation.
“People are definitely more willing to take a
chance and try something different,” he said.
But even as the beer industry continues to
grow, especially craft establishments, apparently a rising tide of suds does not fill all
mugs.
A beer walk in Burlingame was canceled earlier in the week, due to lack of interest.
Promoters said of the 400 tickets needed to be
sold to host the event, only eight were purchased.

Saturday :

critical injuries after being shot twice, but
could not confirm initial reports the man
was shot in the hip and the back.
Police quickly shut down the overpass
in both directions as investigators, crime
lab technicians and gang specialists
scoured the scene for evidence. The overpass was reopened at 8:45 p. m.
While the shooting is still under investigation, it’s believed the victim may
have been in some sort of altercation with
a suspect or suspects possibly driving a
green BMW on the west side of the ramp
as reports first indicated activity on the

800 block of North Idaho Street, Decker
said.
The victim is thought to have walked
east onto the overpass where he was ultimately shot. Witnesses reported seeing
the green BMW with a broken rear window, however, it’s unclear whether the car
is related to the shooting, Decker said. It
is believed the incident was isolated and
may have been gang related, he added.
The victim was considered in critical,
but stable condition as of Friday evening,
according to police.
Any one with any information is urged
to come forward and contact police at
(650) 522-7700. Any one wishing to

Fifty Shades of dissatisfaction
By Lindsey Bahr
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Curious? The posters for
“Fifty Shades of Grey” coyly
ask.
Whether or not you’re one of
the 100 million who bought,
and presumably read, E L
James’ kinky book, the buzz

alone
surrounding
this
“Twilight” fan fiction turned
international phenomenon is
enough to pique the interest of
a rock. “Fifty Shades of Grey”
is inherently spectacle.
With all that irresistible
anticipation, how could a
movie about BDSM be so run
of the mill? The short answer:

fear and money. It’s one thing
to read about the bondageenabled sexual awakening of
a virgin. It’s quite another to
see it depicted on screen.
Director
Sam
TaylorJohnson had an impossible
mission on her hands to meld

he lives of a happy family, focused
on advancing their education and
bettering the community, were
ripped away in North Carolina this week.
Though murder is, unfortunately, nothing
new, I still believe the press should be covering this more extensively against a larger
backdrop of growing
Islamophobia. There
seems to be an almost
normalization of this in
many media outlets,
focusing more on the
murderer’s “cooperation
with authorities” in an
attempt to pass it off as a mere parking disagreement or potential mental illness versus a relatively obvious hate crime. There
is still extensive investigation going on to
pinpoint the exact reason that compelled
this man to kill. But for me, for every other
Muslim and for everyone who has ever felt
this level of prejudice and injustice, nothing else needs to be proven. The blood
spilled of these three people — a husband,
a wife, a sister — is enough for me.
I am an American citizen. I was raised
mostly on Californian soil. I’ve attended
public school all my life. I work hard. My
parents work hard. We are as American as
anyone else. What is the point of the socalled American dream if we are constantly
misjudged, constantly made the scapegoat
by well-respected and influential media outlets? There shouldn’t be an us-against-them
mentality.
This is but one tragedy in a huge mass of
Islamophobia fomenting in our country and
in our world. There is an unfortunate double
standard against Muslims in that any crime
committed by someone affiliated with the
Islamic faith is automatically labeled as an
act of terror when seemingly any crime
committed by anyone else is a one-time,
isolated thing.
Let me point out the absurdity of expecting every Muslim to be apologetic for

The balance of power
shifts in ‘Venus in Fur’
By Judy Richter
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

Erotic sparks fly in San Jose Stage
Company’s production of “Venus in Fur” by
David Ives.
It starts late one stormy afternoon after
Thomas (Johnny Moreno) has unsuccessfully auditioned dozens of actresses for the lead
in a play, “Venus in Fur,” he’s directing. He
has adapted it from “Venus in Furs,” an 1870
novel by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. The
term “masochism” evolved from the
author’s name.
Thomas is just about to leave when another actress, Vanda (Allison F. Rich), stum-

bles in on stiletto heels. Flustered from a
trying day, she says she had an appointment several hours ago, but she’s not on
Thomas’ list.
Still, she convinces Thomas to give her a
chance, saying she’s just right for the part
because the play’s lead character is called
Vanda. She comes across as an airhead who
seems to know almost nothing about the
play or its source.
However, when she takes off her raincoat,
she’s in all black — leather miniskirt,
bustier, stockings and garters — because,
she says, the character is a prostitute.

Aurora stages
scathing and
funny ‘Lyons’
By Judy Richter
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

Long-held resentments along
with secrets and surprises trickle
upward and sometimes spew forth
in Nicky Silver’s “The Lyons,”
presented by Aurora Theatre
Company.
The catalyst for this play about
a dysfunctional family is the pending death of the father, Ben Lyon
(Will Marchetti). Although he and
his wife, Rita (Ellen Ratner), have
known for several months that his
cancer will be fatal, she doesn’t
inform their two adult children
until death could come at any
moment.
Naturally both Lisa (Jessica
Bates) and Curtis (Nicholas
Pelczar) are shocked at the news
and angry that they haven’t been
told sooner. As the family gathers
in Ben’s hospital room, known
information emerges first: Curtis
is gay, and Lisa, a recently
divorced mom raising two young
sons, is a recovering alcoholic.

There’s much more than that,
however, as playwright Silver
reveals in the family’s often
scathing, often hilarious conversations. One thing is clear: There
hasn’t been much love to go
around. However, there’s lots of
bitterness, and everyone is scared
in some way, mostly of being
alone.
The play’s other two characters
are a nurse (Edris CooperAnifowoshe) and a real estate
agent, Brian (Joe Estlack). Brian
appears in only one scene, when
he shows a vacant New York City
studio apartment to Curtis, who’s
supposedly interested in buying
it. Nevertheless, Brian plays a
pivotal role in the play’s outcome.
Director Barbara Damashek
paces this two-act, two-hour work
well, allowing time for the laughs
and carefully pacing speeches that
leave the audience raptly silent.
One such scene comes as Ratner’s
Rita tells about the time many
years ago when she bought a gun,

VENUS

Then, as she and Thomas, playing
Severin, the lead male, read through the
script, it appears she has memorized most
of the lines.
And, from the large bag she has brought
she pulls a dress suitable for the time period
of the play. As if that weren’t enough, she

presumably to kill Ben.
In fact, Rita carries some of the
play’s heaviest loads, especially
in one of the final scenes, when
she acts on her intention to snare
whatever happiness she can.
Marchetti
is
marvelously
grumpy as the dying Ben, while

Bates and Pelczar embody all of
the anxieties felt by his two offspring.
Except for the apartment scene,
the rest of the action takes place
in a hospital room.
This Bay Area premiere production is a highly entertaining,

thought-provoking evening of
theater.
“The Lyons” will continue

also has brought in a frock coat and jacket
that both fit Thomas perfectly.
The play within the play concerns the
dominant-submissive sexual relationship
between Vanda as the dominant one and
Severin as the submissive one.
Paralleling Thomas’ script, the balance of
power between him and actress Vanda shifts
from him as the director to her as herself and
her character.
American Conservatory Theater successfully staged “Venus in Fur” last year, but this

current production is more erotically
charged in part because it’s in a far more
intimate space.
Another reason might be that Moreno and
Rich have acted together before and apparently have developed a sense of trust that
creates the necessary chemistry between
their characters.
Director Kimberly Mohne Hill also
deserves credit for careful pacing of this 90minute, intermissionless play. She allows
laugh lines to relieve some of the tension

while adding to the audience’s questions
about Vanda. Just who is she? How does she
know so much about Thomas, his fiancee
and even their dog? Why is she there?
The playwright provides no concrete
answers to those questions, but he gives the
audience for this fine production plenty to
think about.
“Venus in Fur” will continue through
March 1 at The Stage, 490 S. First St., San
Jose. For tickets and information call (498)

THE DAILY JOURNAL

SENIOR CORRESPONDENT

A MUS EUM OF LIVING
PLANTS :
THE
DES ERT
B OTANICAL GARDEN IN
PHOENIX, ARIZONA. The
deserts of the world are filled with
life, often unexamined by travelers rushing through what may
seem to be arid wastelands. In the
1930s, a small group of Arizona
citizens, interested in conserving
the fragile desert environment,
formed the Arizona Cactus and
Native Flora Society to sponsor a
botanical garden to encourage an
understanding, appreciation and
promotion of the uniqueness of
the world’s deserts, particularly
the local Sonoran Desert. In 1939
the Desert Botanical Garden
opened as a non-profit museum
dedicated to research, education,
conservation and display of
desert plants. Today, the garden
comprises 140 acres and has more
than 50,000 plants in its collection, including 139 rare, threatened or endangered species. It
focuses on plants adapted to
desert conditions, including an
Australian collection, a Baja
California collection and a South
American collection. Five thematic trails wind past cacti and
succulent species from around the
world. Interpretive exhibits
along the trails highlight desert
wildflowers, conservation, desert
plant adaptation and ethnobotany. 250, 000 visitors each
year are drawn to this one-of-akind showcase.
THE S AGUARO AB OVE
ALL. A highlight of any visit to
the Garden is a close look at the
saguaro cactus, the largest cactus
in the United States, which may
be seen on the Garden’s Desert
Discovery Trail. The saguaro
(pronounced “sah-wah-roh”) is
the icon of the American West,
familiar even to those who have
never been to the desert.
Normally growing to be 40 feet

tall and living for more than 150
years, the saguaro is native to the
Sonoran Desert in Arizona, the
Mexican State of Sonora, and the
Whipple Mountains and Imperial
County areas of California.
Luana Vargas, Program Director
of Adult Education at the Desert
Botanical Garden, said: “One of
my favorite plant species at the
Garden is the saguaro (Carnegiea
gigantea), native to the Sonoran
Desert, it is extremely important
in providing food and shelter for
wildlife and, for me, it stands out
as a totem [symbol] of the
resilience of plants in the desert.”
Saguaro grow slowly from
seed, never from cuttings. The
saguaro cactus grows as a column
at a very slow rate, with all
growth occurring at the tip, or
top of the cactus. It can take 10
years for a saguaro cactus to reach
1 inch in height. By 70 years of
age, a saguaro cactus can reach 6
feet tall and will finally start to
produce its first flowers. (The
pure white, waxy saguaro blossom is the state wildflower of
Arizona. ) By 95-100 years in
age, a saguaro cactus can reach a
height of 15-16 feet, and can
start to produce its first arm. By
200 years old, the saguaro cactus
has reached its full height.
Whenever it rains, saguaros soak
up the rainwater. The cactus will
visibly expand, holding in the
water. It conserves the water and
slowly consumes it.

Phoenix Point of Pride, is located

‘Fifty Shades’ author says she ‘fought hard’ for her fans
By Jocelyn Noveck
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — “Fifty Shades of Grey”
devotees, know this: Whether you end up
loving or hating the new movie, author E.L.
James had your back.
“I was thinking about the readers,” James
says about the sometimes fraught process of
adapting her steamy book to the screen — a
process that reportedly involved creative differences, to put it gently, with director Sam
Taylor-Johnson. Out this Friday for
Valentine’s weekend, the R-rated film stars
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan.
“I understand what it’s like to be in fandom,” she says. “I had to fight for a lot of
things really hard. And I did.” (As a producer
on the film as well as the trilogy’s author,
James had an unusual amount of creative
clout.)
James, 51, who wrote the erotic trilogy for
her own enjoyment and ended up launching a
global phenomenon, sat down over the
weekend with the Associated Press to chat
about the new film and the fans whose devotion has brought her such stunning commercial success. (Editor’s note: Director TaylorJohnson was not made available for this article.)
AP: What was the hardes t thi ng
abo ut adapti ng y o ur bo o k?

GREY
Continued from page 19
the tawdry with the conventional. It’s like
trying to mash up the sensibilities of Lars
von Trier with Nancy Meyers to create an
end product that will be appealing on a mass
scale. In trying to please everyone, though,
“Fifty Shades of Grey” has stripped away
the fun and settled on palatable. There have
been perfume commercials with more depth
and story arc.

JAMES: My biggest
concern was making sure
that the sex was really
classy and tasteful. It’s
very coyly written in the
books. Women don’t like
salacious slang. So that
was really important to
me, to keep it tasteful.
AP: Maki ng the
E.L. James
fi l m, were y o u thi nki ng abo ut y o ur readers , o r abo ut a new audi ence that perhaps has n’t read the bo o k?
JAMES: I was thinking about the readers.
There are enough of them! (Laughter.) I mean
hopefully we’ll bring other people to it as
well, of course; there are people who don’t
read at all. But my readers are the people I’ve
always had in my mind. I understand the disappointment when key scenes are forgotten,
or missing, so I was an advocate for them.
AP: Di d y o u hav e to fi g ht hard fo r
any thi ng ?
JAMES: Oh, I had to fight for a lot of
things really hard. And I did. (laughs).
AP: Li ke what?
JAMES: Well, the Red Room (of Pain), for
example, wasn’t red at first. But it’s things
like this, within any creative process, when
you’re the auteur of a whole universe, and
then, you’re spreading it out ... it’s not

always going to be aligned with how you saw
it. But beneath it all, I was just hoping that
we’d have something that the fans would be
happy with.
AP: Who ’s y o ur ty pi cal fan?
JAMES: Female. That’s it. All ages —
from too young, and into their ‘90s.
AP: Do es that mean that men aren’t
real l y the ri g ht audi ence?
JAMES: Well, I’ve had some lovely
emails from men. Like one saying, “Thank
you for reminding me what it’s like to fall in
love.”
AP: When s ho o ti ng s tarted, y o u
s ai d y o u were terri fi ed.
JAMES: Yes! Coming from fandom, I
know what it’s like when you’re let down by
certain things, and I just didn’t want to do
that. What I can say is, we got there in the
end.
AP: Was i t a di ffi cul t pro ces s fo r the
acto rs ?
JAMES: I think it was very difficult. But
all the really intimate stuff happened at the
end of the shoot, which meant that Jamie and
Dakota got to know each other, and were far
more comfortable with each other. That
helped.
AP: Thi s i s n’t the fi rs t mo v i e to
hav e i nti mate s ex s cenes .
JAMES: Absolutely! But you guys, the
media, are all about the sex. The fact is, it’s a

love story, and women respond to the love
story. The fact that there’s a little bit of kinky
sex in there is sort of like an added bonus. It’s
just become sensationalized, because it’s like
... Oh my God, women like sex. Yes we do,
thank you very much!
AP: Hav e the bo o ks had s i mi l ar s ucces s al l o v er the wo rl d?
JAMES: Except in Japan. It’s doing OK in
Japan, but women don’t talk to each other
there. They’re so private about what goes on
in the bedroom. That was interesting.
AP: Are repo rts true that there was
an arg ument o v er the fi nal wo rd i n the
mo v i e?
JAMES: Um, there was a discussion. But I
am very happy with the final scene.
AP: Yo ur mai n character, Anas tas i a
Steel e, certai nl y takes a jo urney.
What has YOUR pers o nal jo urney
been?
JAMES: I think I just realized how strong
I am, and how resilient. Actually, I wrote the
books really just to entertain myself. The fact
that they’ve entertained a whole lot of other
people is just thrilling. My only ambition
when I published this (as a small e-book) was
to see it one day in a bookshop. So everything else has been like, “Holy crap!”
(Editor’s note: Actually, though “Holy crap”
is a favorite expression of Anastasia Steele,
James used a somewhat stronger word.)

For the uninitiated, “Fifty Shades of
Grey” is about lit student Anastasia Steele
(Dakota Johnson) and her torrid affair with
27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey
(Jamie Dornan). They meet on a lark, when
her aspiring journalist roommate gets ill
and Anastasia agrees to help out by subbing
in to interview the handsome mogul.
The two are made to look as mismatched
as possible. She’s a clumsy innocent with a
childish ponytail in tights and a cardigan,
he looks like he’s just stepped out of an ad
for bespoke suits and new money pretention. We’re supposed to believe that sparks
fly immediately, but this first meeting con-

jures up the dynamic of a predator and a
scared feral animal more than anything else.
Still, something snaps in Christian and
he decides he must have her as his own. He
starts popping up everywhere, from the
hardware store where she works to the college bar where she’s had a bit too much to
drink to save her from a handsy friend.
Soon he’s whisking Ana (Ms. Steele as he
calls her) away on his helicopter to a garish
bachelor’s pad/penthouse apartment, wooing her with white wine (but not too much,
as he constantly reminds her), domineering
gazes,
and antiquated formalities.
Laughable sexual innuendo peppers all their
conversations.
But instead of the will-they-won’t-they
tension that even the silliest sitcom can
pull off effectively, the unfortunate consequence is that the nearly 40 minutes that it
takes for Christian and Ana to go under the
sheets almost seem more gratuitous than
anything that happens in the Red Room of
Pain. Also, after the sex starts, so do the
exhaustive and dull contract negotiations.
The chemistry between Johnson and
Dornan is decent, even if they do seem to be
acting in different movies. Dornan’s
Christian is a humorless caricature, while
Johnson’s Ana is actually quite likable,

funny and strong-willed. In a film full of
flaws, Johnson is an undeniable bright
spot.
A lot has been made about what the popularity of James’s book says about American
women and their sexual fantasies. On
screen, that conversation makes even less
sense. Fans hungering for less conventional depictions of sex haven’t been looking
hard enough — non-pornographic sex is
not unchartered territory in cinema, or even
television for that matter. There is more
scintillating material in a premium HBO
show than in this version of E L James’s
book.
“Fifty Shades of Grey,” had an opportunity here to do something different — to give
a mass audience something worthy of all the
hype.
We may have all been curious going in,
but by the time the credits roll, there’s
another question that springs to mind: Is
that all there is?
“Fifty Shades of Grey, ” a Universal
Pictures release, is rated R by the Motion
Picture Association of America “for strong
sexual content including dialogue, some
unusual behavior and graphic nudity, and for
language.” Running time: 125 minutes.
One and a half stars out of four.

Date night or moms night off:
moviegoers plan to see ‘Fifty’
By Leanne Italie
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Brittany Brown
wouldn’t miss the opening of the
“Fifty Shades of Grey” movie for anything. She has read and re-read all three
books, uses the app, follows FSOG
role play on Twitter and set her DVR to
record trailers for the highly anticipated Valentine’s weekend release.
But ditching her boyfriend for her
gal gang of superfans was problematic.
“Feb. 14 is actually his birthday.
He’ll go out with his guy friends and
I’ll see FSOG with my friends. Later
that evening we’ll all meet up to party.
We’ll celebrate Valentine’s Day on
Sunday as a couple,” said Brown, a 22year-old public relations intern in
Silver Spring, Maryland.
Three years in the waiting, the opening of the erotic romance on sweethearts’ weekend will be a breathless
affair for “Fifty” die-hards everywhere.
Some will have husbands in tow.
Some already have tickets. And those
book groups of mommies that helped
propel the bondage story to more than
100 million copies sold? They’ll be
crowding theaters, too.
Lyss Stern in New York will be one
of them with 50 friends, including
some very expectant ones.
“Hopefully nobody will go into
labor,” she laughed.
Stern, 40, throws mom-centric
social events for a living and once
feted “Fifty” writer EL James at the
height of mania over the books. Come
Feb. 13, Stern will be handing out
treats to her buddies when they take
their seats in a Manhattan theater.
She’ll include special sweets and
other, er, stuff.
“There will be some fun toys, of
course,” she promised. “It’s the most
buzzed-about film in the mommy world
in a long time. It’s a ‘Sex and the City’
kind of excitement. We know it’s not
going to win an Oscar, but we also
know it’s going to be fun.”
In North Hampton, New Hampshire,
you can count Lou Altman wholeheartedly, completely voluntarily, in.
“My wife and I have been planning
this date since the movie was
announced,” said the 50-year-old head
of a satellite communications company. “Any half-smart husband will go
see this movie with his wife. There
WILL be a payoff.”
The ticket-buying site Fandango
said pre-sales have propelled “Fifty
Shades” into the 15-year-old company’s all-time Top 5 for R-rated selec-

tions. Several hundred screenings have
already sold out. Some are in unanticipated hot spots, including Tupelo,
Mississippi,
and Chattanooga,
Tennessee.
Jenna Mulford, manager of a twoscreen independent cinema in Iowa
Falls, Iowa, will have quite a weekend
on her hands. At her Metropolitan
Opera House, which it once was, she’ll
offer the faith-based “Old Fashioned,”
a sweet look at abstinence outside of
marriage, along with “Fifty Shades.”
She’s sure there will be crossover,
and a lively lobby conversation or
two. Mulford reached out to churches
in her area to make sure they knew “Old
Fashioned” was coming while fielding
numerous queries for “Fifty.”
“The curiosity is going to pull them
toward one and their faith is going to
pull them toward the other,” Mulford
predicted.
Outscreened and outfinanced, the creators of “Old Fashioned” held its
release to open against “Fifty Shades,”
poking fun along the way in trailers
that flash cheeky taglines. “Love is ...
anything but grey,” reads one.
Rik Swartzwelder stars in “Old
Fashioned” as small-town antiques
dealer Clay Walsh, a porn king turned
Christian (of the religious, not Grey
variety) who refuses to be alone with
any woman he’s not married to, including a free spirit who rents the apartment above his shop.
He also wrote, directed and co-produced the movie, booked into about
200 theaters, and helped position it as
the David up against the kinky Goliath
on Valentine’s weekend.
“It seemed like a unique time to say
let’s
have
this
discussion, ”
Swartzwelder said of the sexually dis-

parate selections. “Who do we want to
be?”
As Mulford juggles her church guests
and “Fifty” fans, Universal Pictures
has offered “Fifty” blockbuster treatment with wide release around the
world for the holiday. So, in real life,
exactly how large a shadow has been
cast by the books?
According to a new Associated PressWE tv survey of 1,315 adults, 2 in 10
Americans say they’ve heard “a great
deal” (9 percent) or “quite a bit” (11
percent) about the books. Another 44
percent say they’ve heard at least
something about them. Fifteen percent
say they’ve actually read some. Even
more — 22 percent — say they plan to
see the movie.
Among those who have heard of the
story, nearly 4 in 10 (39 percent) credit the popularity of the trilogy for
making people more adventurous in
their sex lives. Another 3 percent say
it’s made people less adventurous, and
57 percent say there’s been no impact.
And the women take it among fans:
Nearly a quarter of women (24 percent)
say they have read some part of the
trilogy, compared with only 4 percent
of men.
Number crunching aside, Kendra
Davis and her husband are among
those who nabbed “Fifty” tickets in
advance.
“My husband is not into ‘Fifty
Shades.’ In fact, I’m sure he’ll be surprised by the intensity and high level
of intimacy in the film,” said the 28year-old Davis, who works for a nonprofit in the Cleveland area. “Since it’s
Valentine’s Day, I’m sure a lot of
women are using this opportunity for
date night and turning up the heat in
the bedroom.”

potential to cost you dearly or damage your reputation.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t be put in a
compromising position at work by becoming too
involved with someone’s personal problems.
Emotional confrontations are best kept to a
minimum if you want to avoid conflict.

ideas will open up avenues that were closed in the
past. Good connections can be made if you network
with people who work in your industry.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Focus on the
people you love. Lifestyle improvements will add
greater depth to your romantic life. Don’t be tempted to
stretch the truth or offer the impossible.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Be clear about
your specifi cations and expectations. If you plan to
develop a workable partnership, boundaries must
be set. Be leery of someone from your past trying
to make amends.

OBAMA

Obama calls for public debate over encryption

Continued from page 1

By Darlene Superville
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Further, disclosures from former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden exposing
sweeping U. S. government surveillance
programs have angered many. The programs
tapped into data from firms including
Google and Yahoo.
“There’s a drastic collective disconnect
that I think the administration is working
hard to bridge,” said Amy Zegart, co-director of Stanford’s Center for International
Security and Cooperation, who met with
Obama before his speech.
Obama told more than 1,500 business
leaders, students, professors and reporters
that information about threats must be
shared and responded to quickly. And he
signed an executive order aimed at making it
easier for private firms to have access to
classified information about cyber attacks.
He also stressed there would be oversight
to ensure protections for privacy and civil
liberties.
The administration wants Congress to
replace the existing patchwork of state laws
with a national standard giving companies
30 days to notify consumers if their personal information has been compromised.
“The new proposals face significant headwinds, both legislatively from Congress
and cooperatively from heavyweights in

VELETE
Continued from page 1
according to the District Attorney’s Office.
The new charges stem from a Feb. 5 probation visit where a search of Velete’s cellphone revealed photos of him with a gun,
said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
Velete allegedly admitted to having been in
possession of a gun and smoking marijua-

SAN FRANCISCO — President Barack
Obama said Friday that he probably leans
more toward strong computer data encryption than many in law enforcement, but
added that he understands investigators’
concerns over the matter because of their
need to protect American citizens from
attacks.
He suggested having a “public conversation” about the issue because “the first
time that attack takes place in which it
turns out that we had a lead and we couldn’t
follow up on it, the public’s going to
demand answers.”
Obama was interviewed by the technolo-

gy website Re/code after he addressed a
White House summit on cybersecurity and
consumer protection that was held at
Stanford University.
“And so this is a public conversation
that we should end up having,” he said. “I
lean probably further in the direction of
strong encryption than some do inside of
law enforcement. But I am sympathetic to
law enforcement because I know the kind
of pressure they’re under to keep us safe.
And it’s not as black and white as it’s
sometimes portrayed.”
The trend toward strong data encryption
follows recent, damaging revelations that
the U. S. government was collecting
phone records and digital communications
of millions of people not suspected of
wrongdoing.

the tech sector,” said Ben Desjardins, director of security solutions at cybersecurity
firm Radware. “Based on the Snowden leaks,
these companies believe they’ve already
been badly burned by the government, and
have very little to gain by publicly backing
the president’s proposals.”
Scott Algeier, executive director of the
nonprofit Information Sharing and
Analysis Center, has been working from the
private-sector side to get the government to
share information. He said the new executive order seems more like a federal takeover

of private-sector information sharing.
“There’s a lot of talk today about ‘publicprivate partnerships.’ But there isn’t a partnership here,” he said.
Nonetheless, there was agreement at the
daylong summit among White House officials and leaders from a broad business sector — including utilities, health care, insurance and finance — that the threat is getting
worse, and no single institution can take it
on.
“Right now there are people trying to
hack into all our companies, and one of

Velete denied the allegations during his
arraignment Friday morning, Wagstaffe
said.
Velete’s two-week torture spree began
after he moved into his girlfriend’s mother’s Redwood City apartment in December
2013.
Enraged after the 4-month-old terrier
named Lucky defecated on the floor, Velete
began to torturing the puppy, often in front
of his daughter.

He would kick and punch Lucky, spray
household cleaner in its eyes, tape its
mouth closed, force-feed it psychiatric
drugs and put it in a duffle bag then hung it
in the shower while listening to it whimper
for hours. Velete eventually suffocated
Lucky Jan. 6, 2014, then put the dog in a
duffle bag and threw it in the garbage.
Despite the heinous nature of his crimes,
a 2011 law prevented prosecutors from
sending Velete to prison and he was instead
sentenced to time county jail, Wagstaffe
said.

those idiots might succeed. That’s the fearful part,” said MasterCard CEO Ajay Banga.
Numerous companies, ranging from mass
retailers like Target and Home Depot to
Sony Pictures Entertainment and health
insurer Anthem, have suffered costly and
embarrassing data breaches in recent
months. The Twitter feed of U.S. Central
Command, which oversees military operations in the volatile Middle East, was
hacked as well, while the White House
detected “activity of concern” in October on
its unclassified computer network used by
White House staffers.
Those breaches — which the Identity
Theft Resource Center said left 85 million
records exposed last year — are moving the
cybersecurity discussion from tech geeks to
policy wonks.
“We must get this right. History has
shown us that sacrificing our right to privacy can have dire consequences,” said Apple
CEO Tim Cook, who described the online
world as being in a pivotal moment. “If
those of us in positions of responsibility
fail to do everything in our power to protect
the right of privacy, we risk something far
more valuable than money. We risk our way
of life.”
While the focus of the White House visit
to Stanford University was cybersecurity,
the cadre of officials and business leaders
who traveled from an East Coast gripped in
a brutally cold winter into a wave of warm,
sunny skies couldn’t help but comment
about the weather.
He was given 365 days of credit toward
time served and, per state law, ultimately
only spent about six months in jail after his
sentence before being released, Wagstaffe
said.
Based on the new charges, Velete could
face another year and a half in county jail
where he is currently being held without
bail, Wagstaffe said.
He will return to court Feb. 24 for a probation violation conference, Wagstaffe
said.
