Harbor District head resigns


Sabrina Brennan passes gavel to longtime fisherman Tom Mattusch
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Citing a campaign of retribution against


her, San Mateo County Harbor District
Commission President Sabrina Brennan
tearfully resigned from her post Tuesday
night, passing the gavel to longtime fisherman Tom Mattusch.
Its been a long and exhaustive experience and Im at my breaking point,

Sabrina
Brennan

Brennan said at a special


meeting held to reorganize the board.
However, Brennans
supporters at the meeting
described her as a victim
of misogyny including
Moss Beach resident Bill
Kehoe and Dr. Mary
Larenas.
Shes being criticized

for being a woman, Larenas said.


Recent allegations that Brennan threatened to make interim General Manager
Glenn Lazoffs life a living hell were the
tipping point for fellow Commissioner
Robert Bernardo, who called her a walking
lawsuit.
Bernardo said that Brennan had actively
worked to pit groups against each other
related to such topics as who will run the
annual Mavericks surf contest and that she

had led to skyrocketing legal bills for the


district.
She has displayed a disturbing pattern of
behavior, he said.
Even Commissioner Nicole David said
she too has had similar experiences with
Sabrina after discussing how Lazof had felt
harassed by Brennan after only being on the
job for three days.

Adoption is the only option

Due to a severe parking crunch in


South San Francisco, officials are considering the best way to address clogged
neighborhood streets without implementing a citywide program that would
force residents to pay for permits.
Police Chief Jeff Azzopardi and Public Rich Garbarino
Works Director Brian McMinn have recommended the city not require residents to purchase permits
that would allow them to park in their neighborhood,
according to a report that will be considered by the City
Council at their meeting Wednesday, May 27.
There are insufficient resources to justify hiring the additional staff and implementing new programs that would be
required to enforce the permits, according to the report, but
at least one elected official believes the issue demands more
investigation.
Mayor Rich Garbarino said he would like the city staff to

Northern Californias first no-kill


animal shelter is turning 50 and its
mission remains the same, rescue as
many dogs and cats as possible and
find them loving homes.

Redwood Citys Pets in Need houses


about 150 cats and dogs that were all
set to be euthanized at animal shelters
throughout the Bay Area.
The nonprofits motto is adoption
is the only option and it shelters pets
for years if it has to before they find
homes, said Alexandra Baggs, who

handles marketing for the agency.


Founded in 1965, the agency has
grown with the support of dozens of volunteers to assist staff in providing medical care including spay and neuter services, vaccinations and microchipping.

Floodwaters rise in Houston;


search goes on for the missing
By Kristie Rieken
and Paul J. Weber
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HOUSTON Floodwaters kept rising Tuesday across much of Texas as


storms dumped almost another foot of
rain on the Houston area, stranding
hundreds of motorists and inundating
the famously congested highways that
serve the nations fourth-largest city.
Meanwhile, the search went on for at
least 13 people who were still missing, including a group that disappeared
after a vacation home was swept down
the river and slammed into a bridge.
Several more fatalities were reported
three in Houston and one more in
Central Texas. That brought to 16 the
number of people killed by the holiday
weekend storms in Texas and
Oklahoma.
The
water
continued rising
overnight as about 11 more inches of
rain fell, much of it in a six-hour period.
The floodwaters affected virtually
every part of the city and paralyzed
some areas. Firefighters carried out
more than 500 water rescues, most
involving stranded motorists. At least
2,500 vehicles were abandoned by
drivers seeking higher ground, officials said.
Given the magnitude and how
quickly it happened, in such a short
period of time, I ve never seen this
before, said Rick
Flanagan,
Houstons emergency management
coordinator.

SACRAMENTO Californias state Senate on Monday


advanced what proponents called the nations strongest law
designed to make sure women are paid equally for the work
they perform.
Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, said her bill
goes beyond federal anti-discrimination law in trying to
narrow a wage gap that saw California women paid an average of 84 cents for every dollar men were paid in 2013.
Hispanic women in California were paid 44 cents for
every dollar paid white men, the biggest wage gap for
Latina women in the entire country, she said, citing Equal
Rights Advocates, a San Francisco-based civil rights
organization that is promoting the legislation.
It is critical that women be paid fairly and equally for the
work they do, she said.
Under Jacksons bill, employers would have to demonstrate that any wage differences between male and female
employees are based on reasonable job-related considerations and not merely on gender.
The bill would allow workers to allege pay discrimination
based on the wages that the company pays to other employees at different locations. They could also base challenges
on wages the company pays to other employees who do
substantially similar work. It would also bar companies
from retaliating against employees who discuss or ask
about pay at work.
AB1017 by Assemblywoman Nora Campos, D-San Jose,
passed on a 41 to 28 vote, the minimum needed to advance.

State bill compels abortion


notice at pregnancy centers
SACRAMENTO Californians who visit crisis pregnancy centers must know whether the facility is licensed and
that abortion is an option under legislation advanced
Tuesday by the state Assembly.
AB775 advanced on a party-line vote with Republicans
saying it would violate free speech protections.
The bill responded to reports of misinformation at pregnancy centers that are opposed to abortion, including an
unsubstantiated link between abortion and breast cancer.
Women in California deserve to know about all of their
options about family planning and reproductive health care
so that they can make truly informed decisions, said bill
author Assemblywoman Autumn Burke, D-Inglewood.
Her legislation with Assemblyman David Chiu, D-San
Francisco, would require pregnancy centers to post notices
saying that reproductive health services, including abortion, are available to pregnant women and may be financed
under government programs. It would not require referrals to
abortion clinics. The centers would also have to disclose if
they are not medically licensed.
The legislation heads to the Senate after passing on a 4625 vote.

A rescue worker scans a flooded area in south Houston, Texas.


The flooding closed several highways, and the ones that stayed open
became a gridlocked mess.
Interstate 45 near downtown was
backed up for miles on Tuesday morning, and a handful of motorists traveled the wrong way on the highway to
retreat from high water.
The small cars weaved between massive 18-wheelers as other drivers
stared at them in disbelief. With no end
to the backup in sight, some drivers
got off the freeway, only to be held up
again by water covering nearby access
roads.
In the Heights neighborhood about
5 miles from downtown, groups of
people roamed the streets after escap-

ing their stalled cars, and police cruisers blocked some dangerous roads.
Some motorists were stuck on I-45
all night, sleeping in their cars until
the backup was cleared about 8 a.m.
NBA fans at the Toyota Center,
where the Rockets hosted a Western
Conference finals game against
Golden State on Monday, were asked
with about two minutes left in the
game not to leave the arena because of
the severe weather.
The game ended before 11 p.m., but
about 400 people remained in their
seats at 1:30 a.m., choosing to stay in
the building rather than brave the
flooded roads that awaited them outside.

SACRAMENTO The California Assembly on Tuesday


approved legislation making it harder for citizens to propose extreme ballot initiatives following the outrage over
a measure advocating the slayings of gay and lesbian people.
The bills now headed to the Senate would increase the filing fee for ballot initiatives and add disclaimers about clearly unconstitutional measures.
The legislations supporters have said the proposal to
authorize the killings of anyone who has gay sex highlights the need to overhaul Californias initiative system
dating to the early 20th century.
Republican lawmakers said the proposed legislative fixes
are an overreaction to a reprehensible measure that is virtually doomed to fail.
AB1100 by Assemblyman Evan Low, D-Campbell, would
increase filing fees from $200 to $8,000 to reflect the costs
of initial analysis. It passed 46-24 with opponents saying
it would make it harder for citizens to serve as a check on
their government.

Vermonts Sanders kicks off


2016 bid from Clintons left
By Dave Gram and Ken Thomas
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BURLINGTON, Vt. Challenging


Hillary Rodham Clinton from the left,
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders kicked
off his presidential bid Tuesday with a
pitch to liberals to join him in a
political revolution to transform the
nations economy and politics.
Sanders, who entered the Democratic
race in late April, formally opened his
White House campaign in Burlington,
where he was first elected mayor by
defeating a longtime Democratic
incumbent by 10 votes. Three decades
later, Sanders is the underdog again,
vowing to campaign on an agenda to
elevate issues like income inequality,
campaign finance and climate change.
With your support and the support
of millions of people throughout this
country, we begin a political revolution to transform our country economically, politically, socially and environmentally, Sanders declared to
about 5, 000 supporters along the
shore of Lake Champlain.
Now is not the time for thinking
small, he said. Now is not the time
for the same old-same old establish-

ment politics and


stale
inside-theBeltway ideas.
A self-described
democratic socialist, the 73-year-old
Sanders has a following among liberals that could push
Bernie Sanders Clinton to the left.
In
a
lengthy
address, the white-haired senator said
there is something profoundly
wrong when so much of the nations
income goes to the top 1 percent of all
earners.
This grotesque level of inequality is
immoral, he said. It is bad economics. It is unsustainable.
His
campaign
kickoff
in
Burlingtons Waterfront Park, built on
industrial land reclaimed during
Sanders stint as mayor, offered a quintessential Vermont backdrop: a sunsplashed Lake Champlain, where
boaters took in the scene from sailboats and motorboats.
The senator was praised by a lineup
of supporters, including the founders
of Vermonts popular ice cream company, Ben & Jerrys, and environmental

activist Bill McKibben, who predicted


the campaign might someday lead to a
mountaintop named Mount Sanders.
Several leading Vermont Democrats
were notably absent, including Sen.
Patrick Leahy, Gov. Peter Shumlin and
former Gov. Howard Dean, all of whom
are supporting Clinton.
Liberals, some of whom are wary of
Clinton, have unsuccessfully sought
to draw Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth
Warren into the race. But in Warrens
absence, Sanders hopes to fill the void
as he proposes ways to rein in Wall
Street banks, tackle mounting college
debt and create a government-financed
jobs program.
Clinton is in a commanding position
by any measure, far in front of both
Sanders and former Maryland Gov.
Martin OMalley, who is expected to get
into the race Saturday. The Democratic
field could also grow to include former
Virginia Sen. Jim Webb and former
Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee.
But it remains to be seen if liberals
will coalesce around a challenger to
the former secretary of state or if that
slice of the anti-Clinton electorate
will splinter among several candidates.

Police: U.S. airman shoots Wal-Mart workers, kills self


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A U.S. airman with no apparent


motive walked into a Wal-Mart
Supercenter in North Dakota early
Tuesday and opened fire with a handgun, killing one worker and injuring a
second before turning the gun on himself, police said.
Grand Forks police said the shooting a few minutes after 1 a.m. may
have been random, with no link yet
found between Marcell Willis, 21, and
either the store or the employees.
Willis was stationed at Grand Forks Air
Force Base, about a dozen miles west
of the city.

Weve not been able to find any


linkage to him and any of the victims, police Lt. Derik Zimmel said at
an afternoon news conference.
Theres no apparent motive that
jumps out at this time.
Authorities didnt immediately identify the two workers who were shot or
a third worker they say Willis shot at
but missed. The injured person was
taken to Altru Hospital in Grand Forks
with a gunshot wound that was not
believed life-threatening, Zimmel
said. An Altru spokeswoman said the
person was in satisfactory condition
Tuesday afternoon.
Willis was given medical treatment

at the scene and taken to Altru, where


he was pronounced dead, Zimmel said.
Willis was the only person with a
gun and no police officers fired a
weapon, according to Zimmel. A handgun was recovered near Willis body,
Zimmel said.
Zimmel said police believe the airman fired only three shots before
shooting himself. Police did not identify the type of handgun or its caliber.
Andy Legg, who was in the store at
the time of the shooting, told WDAZTV he heard popping sounds shortly
before authorities herded him and other
customers to a safe section of the
store.

Bay Area home prices grew 10.3 percent
Home prices in the San Francisco area grew faster during
the past year than prices in any other U.S. city surveyed,
according to a report released Tuesday.
The S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index shows prices in
the census area that includes San Francisco, Alameda,
Contra Costa, Marin and San Mateo counties grew by 10.3
percent in March compared to the same time in 2014.
Prices in the area grew faster in March than any other metropolitan area surveyed in the report.
Prices were up 3 percent in March in the San Francisco
area compared with February. Thats after a 2.1 percent gain
in February, according to the index.
The monthly values are not adjusted for seasonal affects.
Seasonally adjusted data would make the monthly increases
1.7 percent in March and 3.4 percent in February.
Home prices also rose nationally, with both the 10-city
and 20-city indexes published by S&P/Case-Schiller showing growth over both the past year and the past month. The
only area that did not experience a month-over-month
increase in home prices was New York City.

Study finds Santa Clara


County homeless cost $520 million
San Jose community leaders are hearing results Tuesday of
a new homelessness study that shows people living on the
streets cost the public about $520 million annually.
The report produced by the Los Angeles-based Economic
Roundtable on behalf of Santa Clara County and nonprofit
organization Destination: Home found that emergency
room visits and stays in jail or mental health facilities contribute to the costs. A housing first model of helping persistently homeless people may be more cost effective than
delivering services piecemeal, but Santa Clara county chief
operating officer Gary Graves says a premium on housing
means public and private resources need to come together to
solve the problem.

Future of humanity!

The best possible investment


By Patricia Bresee

his May, during National


Foster Care month, two lessons come to mind which I
learned during my nine years representing children caught up in the maelstrom of dependency hearings. Lessons
worth remembering as the state government ponders a use for our multi-billion dollar budget surplus.
First, the children I represented in
court were grieving. The state had
removed them from their homes to
protect them from abuse or neglect.
They grieved over the loss of the only
home they had ever known and the
only family with whom they identied. Even those children who could
understand the dangers of staying in
their home, grieved.
These children were immediately
thrown into unfamiliar surroundings in
the midst of a complex judicial system. Almost without exception,
regardless of age, the children abruptly
caught up in the system expressed fear,
sadness and profound confusion.
I brought these experiences with me
when I was appointed to the San Mateo
County Juvenile Court bench where I
served for 15 years. I was grateful that
I had seen and known the children I had
represented and understood some of
their experiences.
They met a series of strangers:
social workers, temporary caretakers,
attorneys, judges, health care professionals and teachers who were sincere
in their offers of help, but the children
often didnt see the same person twice.
Even though an attorney represented
them, the children rarely saw them
enough to develop a sense of trust, or
an understanding of this complicated
system that would determine their fate.
But the blame does not necessarily
lie with the attorneys. The Judicial
Council recommends that an attorney
who represents children should ideally
have a caseload of 77, and in no event
more than 188 cases. Yet, according to
the Childrens Law Center of

California, 32
California counties
do not receive sufcient funding to
honor this maximum amount. Of
those counties, 15
are so underresourced that
lawyers caseloads
have grown to more than double the
maximum standard. In 2005, a federal
district court in Atlanta ruled that high
caseloads violated childrens right to
due process guaranteed by their state
Constitution; fundamentally, a right to
counsel means a right to effective
counsel.
Californias legislators and governor could lower caseloads by spending an additional $33.1 million annually to nancially support enough
attorneys to properly represent the
children in our foster care system; and
ensure that caseloads never exceed the
maximum standard.
Secondly, we must improve the outcomes for foster children.
We know how to strengthen the support systems. We can recruit and train
more volunteers to serve as Court
Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs).
These volunteers create genuine and
stable relationships with the children
with whom they are paired, becoming
advocates and mentors who can inform
judges about the childrens best interests and advocate for services, support
and opportunities.
While on the bench, I relied on
social workers and attorneys reports
or comments. The CASAs reports
proved the most helpful because they
truly knew the children and were
trained and equipped to advocate for
them. However, there are too few
CASA volunteers to speak for these
children. Currently, 11,000 children in
the foster care system are fortunate
enough to have a CASA; unfortunately,
at least four times as many need a
CASA. We must change that every
child in foster care should have a

Guest
perspective
CASA volunteer by his or her side.
We must work to nd lifelong connections for foster children; connections that may offer a home, but more
important, offer the continuity of a
relationship the child can trust, during
and after foster care. We need to undertake aggressive efforts to nd extended
family members who may not even
know about the childs plight. We can
accomplish this by directing resources
to the public and nonprot sectors,
and by training social workers and
CASAs to research all available
records.
The need to decrease childrens attorneys caseloads is clear and undisputed.
I hope our governmental leaders will
see that this need has reached a critical
level, and that this is the year for
budgetary intervention. We have a road
map that leads to improved outcomes
for children: increased funding for childrens attorneys, more CASA volunteers, improved efforts to nd family
and providing essential services before
removing children. Now, our leaders
must provide this meaningful support
to families and children today, before
the next child is placed at risk.
The Honorable Patricia Bresee serv ed on
the California Superior Court, County
of San Mateo bench for 15 y ears. The
California Judges Association named
her Juv enile Court Judge of the Year. The
National Court Appointed Special
Adv ocates (CASA) awarded her the title
of Judge of the Year. She serv es as a
board member for the statewide organization, California CASA Association
and is a newly elected member of the
National CASA Association board.

Smart Growth practices
inhibit people from living well
Editor,
Its all in the toilet if we cant do
one thing: live well.
However, we live in a place that is
the highest poverty state in our
nation if you adjust for our housing
costs. Lets talk San Mateo. Most of
my family moved away because of
housing prices, as did the people I
graduated with from Aragon High
School. Heck, if you are raising kids
here, where do you think they will
live when they grow up?

n our culture, a false picture has emerged of what


it is to be a man. The cultures emphasis on
crude, macho masculinity as a status symbol
causes young men to strive after the wrong type of expression of their masculinity. They think that when they can
down a whole six-pack in one sitting, race a car at top
speed, or have sex with a large number of women, then they
are masculine. John A. Sanford and George Lough,
Ph.D., What Men Are Like.
Thinking about events like Wrestlemania, Monster Jam
and the violence of boxing and football arouses concerns
about what kinds of role models we are offering our boys. It
is evident that there are many ways our vision of manhood
needs to be altered and family dynamics improved so that
more boys can grow up to be more fully functioning wellrounded men. For one, parents need to encourage heroes
who are honest, kind, generous, open and trustworthy
not obsessed with power, aggression, rigidity, violence and
extreme competition. A boy needs to see his parents as
heroes of the right kind those who value things that are
constructive and conducive to a well-balanced life parents who have a nurturant spiritualness about them.
Unfortunately, in todays
culture, to promote positive
heroes, parents must closely
monitor TV and severely
limit movies. The distorted
picture of manhood that a
boy views by watching
most TV, movies and video
games is very detrimental.
First, there are many shows
that depict men as mindless
airheads (Long gone are
shows like Father Knows
Best). Then theres all of
that violence and gratuitous
sex, the exploitation of
women, the emphasis on
crude and destructive cave-man activities, and the message that how famous you are, how much power you wield
and how much you own, give a boy a perverted view of
what it is to be masculine. Many commercials are equally
reprehensible. And, as Michael Gurian wrote in The
Purpose of Boys: The areas of life which our boys need
help developing, the areas of active interaction that build
their frontal and temporal lobe functioning are diminished
by most screen time.
Our education establishment must be encouraged to
respect the inherent nature of boys and develop its curricula
accordingly. We all need to help boys to become skilled at
something they enjoy. They may enjoy being taught to create with their hands and/or helped to develop other skills
that satisfy their desire for innovation, challenge, physical
activity, analysis, adventure, whatever. We can encourage
boys to enjoy nature, care for animals and appreciate and
revere the miracle of life. They also need to see their parents working for good causes, contributing to the community and taking responsibility for their own growth and
education.
Many of the disorders of our youth today can be at least
partially attributed to the psychological deprivation that
they experience because there is no provision in our culture
for meeting the deep needs they have. American culture has
no viable spiritual emphasis. Our highly materialistic society emphasizes activities that lead to money making and
material progress. This one-sided emphasis sees things
spiritual as of merely secondary importance, wrote Sanford
and Lough.
With thoughtful parental example and guidance, all children must be encouraged to learn to think for themselves
and to question not to just automatically adopt the values and views of others. They need to learn to recognize and
heed the inner voice that keeps them true to themselves.
Especially boys need to learn that they dont have to
always be top dog, that its OK to sometimes make mistakes and be vulnerable. Perceptive, discerning parents are
crucial to this.
When the essence of masculinity is directed toward positive ends, great things can result. Think of the builders, the
innovators, the philosophers, the creators, the steady, stable providers, the devoted fathers who are examples of selfactualized men. Where the essence is misdirected, the
results can be devastating. And if you dont believe this,
you havent been reading the newspapers.
Until we realize that many of our children are being raised
in ways that prevent them from directing their energies to
constructive ends, building their self-condence and feeling
at peace with themselves, aberrant human products of our
culture will overwhelm us sooner than we think.
We who care today about the lives of boys and men have
an immediate and profound mission, inherent in our position as mothers and fathers, teachers, mentors, citizens and
friends. That mission is nothing less than to help each boy
develop into a creative spirit, trustworthy friend, moral
leader and meaningful man. Our mission is nothing less
than to protect and nurture the future of humanity.

NEW YORK The stock market


endured its worst day in three weeks on

Greeces debt crisis and a surge in the
U.S. dollar.
Investors seeking safety bought
U.S. government bonds.
The Dow Jones Industrial average
lost 190.48 points, or 1 percent, to
18,041.54. The Standard & Poors 500
index lost 21.86 points, also 1 percent, to 2,104.20 and the Nasdaq composite fell 56.61 points, or 1.1 percent, to 5,032.75.

The drop Tuesday can be tied to two
phenomena that, when put together,
caused the selling to compound.
On one side, investors remain concerned about Greeces ability to repay
its debts. Greece might miss a payment on June 5 if it fails to receive
bailout funds from creditors, who are
demanding that the country make
reforms to its economy. Talks to
reach a deal resumed Tuesday after a

whether an agreement can be reached
in time.
Also, the value of the U.S. dollar
surged Tuesday, causing reverberations
in several markets. The price of oil,
gold and other commodities, which are
priced in dollars, dropped. That, in
turn, pushed down the stocks of companies which do business in those
commodities, such as copper and gold
miners, or do most of their business
outside the U.S. Industrial, oil and gas,
and material sector companies were all
broadly lower.
While investors have considered
Greeces financial troubles for years
now, the country is precariously close
to the edge this time. It owes 6.7 billion euros this month to investors and
the International Monetary Fund and
does not have the cash to pay it.
Meanwhile, another big question for
investors is when the Federal Reserve
the Federal Reserve will finally make
its first interest rate increase in almost

either later this year or early next year.

IRS: Thieves stole tax info from 100,000


By Stephen Ohlemacher
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Sophisticated
criminals used an online service run by
the IRS to access personal tax information from more than 100,000 taxpayers, part an elaborate scheme to
steal identities and claim fraudulent tax
refunds, the IRS said Tuesday.
The thieves accessed a system called
Get Transcript, where taxpayers can
get tax returns and other filings from
previous years. In order to access the
information, the thieves cleared a
security screen that required knowledge
about the taxpayer, including Social
Security number, date of birth, tax filing status and street address, the IRS
said.
Were confident that these are not
amateurs, said IRS Commissioner
John Koskinen. These actually are
organized crime syndicates that not
only we but everybody in the financial
industry are dealing with.
Koskinen wouldnt say whether
investigators believe the criminals are
based overseas or where they
obtained enough personal information
about the taxpayers to access their
returns. The IRS has launched a crimi-

nal investigation. The agencys


inspector general is also investigating.
Identity thieves, both foreign and
domestic, have stepped up their efforts
in recent years to claim fraudulent tax
refunds. The agency estimates it paid
out $5.8 billion in fraudulent refunds
to identity thieves in 2013.
Eighty percent of the of the identity theft were dealing with and refund
fraud is related to organized crime here
and around the world, Koskinen said.
These are extremely sophisticated
criminals with access to a tremendous
amount of data.
Congress is already pressing the IRS
for information about the breach.
That the IRS home to highly
sensitive information on every single
American and every single company
doing business here at home was
vulnerable to this attack is simply
unacceptable, said Sen. Orrin Hatch,
R-Utah, chairman of the Senate
Finance Committee. Whats more,
this agency has been repeatedly
warned by top government watchdogs
that its data security systems are inadequate against the growing threat of
international hackers and data
thieves.

Koskinen said the agency was alerted to the thieves when technicians
noticed an increase in the number of
taxpayers seeking transcripts.
The IRS said they targeted the system from February to mid-May. The
service has been temporarily shut
down.
Taxpayers sometimes need copies of
old tax returns to apply for mortgages
or college aid. While the system is
shut down, taxpayers can still apply
for transcripts by mail.
The IRS said its main computer system, which handles tax filing submissions, remains secure.
In all, about 200,000 attempts were
made from questionable email
domains, with more than 100,000 of
those attempts successfully clearing
authentication hurdles, the agency
said. During this filing season, taxpayers successfully and safely downloaded a total of approximately 23
million transcripts.
The agency is still determining how
many fraudulent tax refunds were
claimed this year using information
from the stolen transcripts. Koskinen
provided a preliminary estimate, saying less than $50 million was successfully claimed.

Charter buying Time Warner Cable as TV viewers go online


By Tali Arbel
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK As TV watchers


increasingly look online for their fix,
cable companies are bulking up. In the
latest round, Charter Communications
is buying Time Warner Cable for
$55.33 billion.
And executives say theyre confident
regulators will allow the creation of
another U.S. TV and Internet giant.
The deal comes a month after
Comcast, the countrys largest cable
provider and owner of NBCUniversal,
walked away from a $45.2 billion bid
for Time Warner Cable, the No. 2 cable
company, after intense pressure from
regulators. The government worried
that the company would be able to
undermine increasingly popular online
video competitors like Netflix because

the bigger Comcast would have more


than half the countrys high-speed
Internet customers.
There has been a wave in consolidation in the cable industry as providers
are starting to lose TV subscribers,
costs for TV, sports and movies rise and
pressure from online video services
such as Netflix and Hulu increases. The
traditional cable ecosystem is breaking
up for example, you can subscribe to
HBO online without having to pay for
cable, or pay for a smaller group of
channels that you watch via a Sony
PlayStation.
Getting bigger is one way to deal
with those changes. It gives cable
providers more lucrative Internet subscribers and more leverage against
entertainment companies providing the
channels.
Whether government regulators will

approve the Charter deal after quashing


Comcasts bid for Time Warner Cable
remains to be seen. Charter also
announced Tuesday that it is buying
Bright House Networks, a smaller cable
provider, for $10.4 billion.
In a statement Tuesday, Federal
Communications
Commission
Chairman Tom Wheeler said that the
FCC weighs every merger on its own to
see if it will be in the public interest,
and that an absence of harm is not sufficient. He said the FCC will look to
see how American consumers would
benefit from the deal.
Charter notes that it will have less
than 30 percent of the customers in the
U.S. that the FCC defines as broadband:
Those downloading at 25 megabit-persecond and faster. Comcast plus Time
Warner Cable would have had more than
half of those subscribers.

If you think Greece is actually in its


last throes in the eurozone its better
to be safe and park your money in U.S.
dollars and deal with the Feds interest
rate increase down the road, said
Quincy Krosby, a market strategist at
Prudential Financial.
Both the European Central Bank and
the Bank of Japan are in the midst of
bond-buying programs to stimulate
their economies, as the Fed did recently in the U.S. A byproduct of those
programs can be a weakened currency.
So when the Fed does raise interest
rates, it could cause the U.S. dollar to
appreciate even more against the euro
and Japanese yen.
U.S. government bond prices rose
sharply, sending yields lower. The
yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell
to 2.13 percent from 2.22 percent late
Friday.
The price of oil fell sharply Tuesday
as dollar gained strength against other
currencies. Oil is priced in dollars
around the world, so a rising dollar
makes oil more expensive to holders
of foreign currency.

Business briefs
TiVos 1Q results top analysts projections, lift stock
SAN JOSE TiVo Inc. attracted another 285,000 subscribers to its digital video recording technology during its
fiscal first quarter, helping propel the company to a performance that exceeded analysts projections.
The results announced Tuesday lifted TiVos slumping
stock by more than 4 percent in extended trading.
TiVo also announced it is buying Cubiware, a Polish
maker of software that helps pay-TV providers design and
manage the interactive menus for their services. The deal
represents TiVos latest attempt to expand its presence in
markets outside the U.S. Terms of the acquisition werent
disclosed.
TiVo earned $7.9 million, or 8 cents per share, during the
three months ending in April. That represented a 3 percent
dip from income of $8.1 million, or 7 cents per share, at the
same time last year. The decline was driven largely by an
additional $1.8 million in interest expenses stemming
from debt taken on last September.
The per-share earnings in the most recent quarter were a
penny above the average estimate of analysts polled by
Zacks Investment Research.
Revenue for the quarter totaled $114.7 million nearly
$3 million higher than analysts predictions.

Hyundai is first to offer Android Auto system


DETROIT Hyundai is the first carmaker to offer

Starting Tuesday, Android smartphone users with a 2015
Sonata can ask dealers to download the system for free.
Drivers must have a Sonata with navigation, which is part
of an optional technology package. Android Auto will soon
be available on other Hyundai models.
Android Auto connects to drivers smartphones and lets
them access certain apps, like Google Maps or Spotify, by
voice, steering wheel controls or touchscreen graphics on
the dashboard. It locks their phones while in use to help
keep drivers eyes on the road.
Google says Android Auto is expected to be offered on 28
different brands by the 2016 model year.
Hyundai says it expects to offer Apples version of the

Central Coast Section Division II playoffs.
In fact, he said hes only washed his uniform
once all season.
The dirt did him good, as he led the No. 4seed Gators (20-12) to another 1-0 victory,

Unlike his previous outing, when he


worked 10 shutout innings to take a nodecision in SHPs eventual 11-inning victory over Palma, the Gators offense brought
some early thunder to get their ace a run. It
was all the support Johnston would need as
he earned the win with a dazzling four-hit
shutout.
Johnston had to battle through a rocky
first inning to earn the advantage though.
Monterey set it up to go large by loading

the bases with no outs in the top of the


frame. But then Johnston hit his stride. He
notched a strikeout before inducing a pair of
pop-outs to end the inning unscathed.
It usually takes me a couple innings to
warm up, but in that first inning I got into
some trouble, Johnston said. But I have
100 percent faith in my defense. I know if I
throw strikes, we can make some plays and
we can get out of it. So, I just started throwing strikes, me and my catcher got on a
good page and I kept going.
Johnston went on to set down 16 of the

Notre Dame-Salinas walks off with 1-0 win over Notre Dame-Belmont Carmel

SAN JOSE The Notre Dame-Belmont


and Notre Dame-Salinas softball teams each
had exactly one scoring opportunity in
their Central Coast Section Division III
semifinal game at San Joses P.A.L. Stadium
Tuesday afternoon.
The Tigers Sofia Magnani was cut down at
the plate to end the top of the seventh
inning. Belmont was not as fortunate in the
bottom of the seventh as Salinas Alexia
Torculas hit a double to fence in the left-center field gap, enabling courtesy runner
Rachel Reimal to score all the way from first
to give the Spirit the walkoff, 1-0 win.
It hurts a little bit, said Belmont coach
Tara Van Meter. We knew it was going to
come down to who could make the clutch
play.
Neither team mounted much offense.
Belmont pitcher Lindsay Mifsud held
Salinas to just three hits through the first
six innings before giving up a pair of hits in
that fateful seventh.
That was an amazing performance [by
Mifsud], Van Meter said. She was getting
ahead, every one of her pitches was working.
Mifsud struck out three and walked a pair.
The Tigers also committed a couple of errors
in the first two innings, but escaped
unscathed. In all, the Spirit managed to get
10 runners on base.
Salinas pitcher Vanessa Gonzalez was
even better. She allowed a single to center to
Belmont leadoff hitter Dani Kazakoff before
retiring nine in a row. Chloe Stogner broke
up that string when she reached on an error
in the top of the fourth, but she was erased
on a back-door double play.
The Tigers hit a number of balls on the
screws. In the top of third, Kazakoff hit a
rocket at Salinas second baseman Spencer
Hyosaka, who made the initial catch, saw

SAN JOSE Baseball can be a vicious


game.
In the fifth inning of Tuesdays Central
Coast Section Division II semifinal between
Carmel and Aragon at San Joses Municipal
Stadium, Carmel senior Robby Treadwell
was attempting to beat out an infield
grounder and, in stretching his right foot to
the first-base bag, broke his ankle and tumbled to the infield dirt in agony.
The injury was an obvious compound fracture of the right ankle, according to Carmel
manager Randy Bispo. It led to a 45-minute
play stoppage as an ambulance was dispatched and Treadwell was carted from the
field via stretcher.
He never shed a tear, Bispo said. He
was definitely in pain.
As Treadwell exited the field, he gave his
distraught teammates a rally fist they obviously took to heart as No. 7-seed Carmel
won with an emotional 4-3 walk-off over
No. 14 Aragon.
When Treadwell departed, Carmel led 3-0.
The Padres turned to the bullpen after starting pitcher Wesley Noble gave them five
shutout innings. The Dons jumped on
reliever Carter Hayes, rallying for three runs
in the top of the sixth to tie it.
But Carmel (23-7) produced a run in the
bottom of the seventh, without recording a
hit, to win it. Aragon starting pitcher Chad
Franquez went the distance in taking the
loss, and battled through a leadoff walk to
Kenny Nava. It was understandable Franquez
would pitch around Nava, who was 3 for 3
with three loud hits in the game. And after
Joseph Bifano bunted Nava to second,
Franquez induced a pop-out for the second
out.
Carmel senior Andres Enriquez followed
with a routine grounder to third, but the ball
went through the legs of Aragon junior

Warriors regroup for Game 5, try to closeout Rockets


By Antonio Gonzalez
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND One play. One fall. One bad


break.
Thats all it takes to shift a series and derail
a dream season.
Stephen Curry and the Golden State
Warriors found out how fragile a championship chase can be in their Game 4 loss at
Houston when the NBA MVP took a scary
spill that nearly gave a storybook season a

frightening twist.
Instead, the moment just
serves as a reminder to
both teams: nothing is
over till its over.
The Warriors will get
another chance to close
out the Rockets on
Wednesday night at home
Steph Curry and advance to the franchises first NBA Finals in
40 years. Golden State, which leads the

Western Conference finals 3-1, is eager to end


the series now and avoid more opportunities
for something strange to happen.
We just dont want to come back to
Houston, Warriors guard Klay Thompson
said. Its not going to be easy. They are here
for a reason. We have to come and play with
more intensity and play together and well
win the game.
Eight months of work almost came crashing down for the Warriors when Curry jumped
in the air as Trevor Ariza started to shoot a

layup midway through the second quarter


Monday night. Ariza saw him and stopped
abruptly, causing Curry to tumble over him.
Currys head hit the court hard and his arms
bent awkwardly. He remained on the floor for
several minutes, walked to the locker room
looking stunned and returned in the second
half after the team said he passed the leaguemandated concussion tests.
It could have been a lot worse, Curry said.

Giants use long ball to beat Milwaukee


By Dave Boehler
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MILWAUKEE When first asked,


Madison Bumgarner was unsure what the
key to his recent success has been. But like
his sixth inning, he quickly figured it out.
Bumgarner won another game in May and
three San Francisco Giants homered in a 6-3
victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on
Tuesday night.
Bumgarner (6-2) gave up four hits and
three earned runs in six innings to improve
to 5-1 in his last six starts. Hes also 9-1 in
May the last two seasons.
There really hasnt been a key, Ive kind
of had everything going, Bumgarner said.
Thats it, just making pitches and getting
outs. Our offense has been scoring a lot of
runs. I guess if theres a key, it would be to
drive in more than we let in. Well go with
that one.
Matt Duffy, Hunter Pence and Brandon
Belt hit home runs and Santiago Casilla
earned his 13th save for San Francisco, now
10-2 in its last 12 games.
Milwaukee lost its fourth straight and is

1-6 over the last seven.


Matt Garza (2-7) struggled again, allowing eight hits and five earned runs in five
innings. The right-hander has lost his last
four decisions, owns just one victory in his
last eight starts and is 0-4 at Miller Park.
Its an adversity period in my life, in my
career, Garza said. Ill just keep pounding
the pavement, keep grinding.
The Brewers already trailed 5-0 when they
got their first hit off Bumgarner in the
fourth on a solo homer by Aramis Ramirez.
In the sixth, a run-scoring double by Ryan
Braun cut San Franciscos lead to 5-2 and put
runners at second and third with no outs. But
after Ramirezs sacrifice fly trimmed it to 53, Bumgarner got Jason Rogers to pop out
to second before Hector Gomezs sharp line
drive was caught by diving shortstop
Brandon Crawford.
That was big, San Francisco manager
Bruce Bochy said. That saved us a run
there. But thats Craw. Hes as good as
there is at short. Hes got a lot of range and
is so athletic, it didnt surprise us.
Pences solo homer came in the first and
Duffys two-run shot just over the leaping

glove of centerfielder Carlos Gomez made it


5-0 in the fourth. The Giants increased their
lead to 6-3 on a solo blast by Belt in the
seventh.

Career best for Posey


Buster Posey set a career high when he
reached base in his 26th straight game when
he was walked in the fifth. He was 0 for 3,
however, to end his hitting streak at 16
games.

OAKLAND David Price outdueled Jesse


Chavez to win for the first time in four starts,
and the Detroit Tigers bounced back from a
shutout a day earlier to beat the Oakland
Athletics 1-0 on Tuesday night.
Price (4-1) gave up five hits, struck out three
and walked one in seven innings for a third
straight winning decision, but his first victory
since May 2 at Kansas City.
Former As outfielder Rajai Davis hit a sacrifice fly in the first against Chavez (1-5).
Slugger Miguel Cabrera returned to the Tigers
lineup after sitting out Monday and extended
his hitting streak to 13 games with a ninthinning single.
Plate umpire Jeff Kellogg took a ball in the
mask in the ninth but stayed in the game after
being checked, and then a fan ran onto the field
to cause another delay.

The As had baserunners in each of the first


five innings and runners in scoring position
with fewer than two outs in four of those, but
couldnt capitalize. They missed a chance in the
eighth, too.
After Ben Zobrists one-out double in the
fifth, Price retired his final eight batters. Joba
Chamberlain got two outs in the eighth, Tom
Gorzelanny entered and allowed Stephen Vogts
infield single, and then Joakim Soria got the
final four outs for his 14th save in 15 opportunities.
Soria retired pinch-hitter Josh Reddick on a
comebacker to end the eighth, and then gave up
Sam Fulds two-out double before finishing the
ninth.
Detroit slugger Yoenis Cespedes singled in
the seventh for his first hit of the series against
his former club. He was then thrown out trying
to steal second.
Oakland had won a season-high three in a
row. The As also picked up their
majors-leading 50th error on
backup catcher Josh Phegleys
first-inning throw a day after a
trio of miscues by the defense.
Chavez lost his second
straight start and third consecutive decision dating to a win at

Minnesota on May 5. He dropped to 0-4 in 10


career appearances and three starts against the
Tigers. He had no chance of following up Jesse
Hahns four-hitter in a 4-0 win Monday with no
support.
Anthony Gose led off the game with a single,
stole second and advanced on Phegleys error.
Davis sacrifice fly was the first run surrendered
by Chavez in the first or second innings all season. He moved into the rotation April 23.
Stephen Vogt played first base to give him a
break from his regular catching rigors as As
manager Bob Melvin rested second baseman
Eric Sogard and right fielder Reddick for most of
the night.

Caada transfers quartet to four-year schools


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Mike Reynosos first class of Caada mens


basketball four-year college transfers began
inking their respective commitments in a formal ceremony Tuesday at the Caada
Gymnasium.
Sophomores Rohndell Goodwin and Kenny
Hatch signed national letters of intent, with
Manny Martin also having accepted a transfer
offer. The fourth of the Colts sophomores,
guard Israel Hakim, is still weighing offers
from a pool of interest from various Division I
and Division II programs.
Goodwin will be moving to Hawaii, accepting a full scholarship from Chaminade
University in Honolulu. The 6-5 forward out of
Tracy was a force as Caadas sixth man this
season. In helping the Colts to the state final
four and ranking fourth in the state in overall
team offense with 83.4 points per game,
Goodwin was the teams leading scorer with 17
points per game.
Goodwin was named the Northern California

MVP and team MVP this season. Not a bad progression, considering he never played high
school basketball at Merrill West High.
[Chaminade University] was wonderful,
Goodwin said. It was paradise. Waking up at 9
in the morning, you can take a walk on the
beach.
The Division II program at Chaminade posted a 12-14 overall record and a 9-11 record in
Pacific West Conference play to finish in
eighth place. Goodwin said the program is
rebuilding, but he is looking to make an immediate impact.
Be the best defender on the team, but also
score the ball, Goodwin said of his goal. My
role is to be a leader.
Hatch will be heading to Laredo, Texas to
play Division II basketball at Texas A&M
International. Like Goodwin, Hatch didnt
have much of a prep career. While at St.
Ignatius, he was cut from the varsity team three
times until finally landing a roster spot as a
senior in 2012.
After having no college offers out of high
school, Hatch started nearly every game

through two years at Caada, including starts
in both season openers. He averaged 8.3
points per game and led the Colts with four

assists per game.


Martin will play eight hours north of Texas
A&M International at Wayland Baptist
University in Plainview, Texas. Martin was
Caadas leading rebounder in 2014-15 with
nine boards per game. He also averaged 11.4
points per game.
In his second year as Caadas head coach,
Reynoso was upbeat about seeing the first
crop of players he recruited two years ago moving on to four-year schools.
It's special, just seeing these guys get
something theyve really worked hard for,
Reynoso said. A lot of it is just work ethic and
doing everything theyve done. Its the
start of many.
Hakim is not decided yet, as he is still hoping for a legitimate Division I offer. After
being named the Colts team MVP while scoring 21.6 points per game as a freshman in
2013-14, Hakim averaged 12.1 points per
game as a sophomore.
Not many people who score 21.6 a game
come in the next year and are a total team player, Reynoso said.

All-girls tackle football league formed in Utah


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SALT LAKE CITY The first


known all-girls tackle football
league has been formed in Utah
featuring a star player who earned
an invitation to the Super Bowl
three years ago thanks to a highlight video of her exploits against
boys.
Sam Gordon, 12, is part of a
four-team league for fifth-graders

and sixth-graders that started play


last weekend in West Jordan, KSLTV reports.
This is the first known all-girls
youth league in the country, said
spokesmen for two of the largest
national youth tackle football
organizations, Pop Warner USA
and USA Football.
As a 9-year-old, Gordon gained
national attention after her father
posted a highlight video of her

running for long touchdowns


against boys her age. She
appeared on Good Morning
America with her likeness on a
custom-made box of Wheaties.
She was invited to the 2013 Super
Bowl in New Orleans by NFL
Commissioner Roger Goodell.
She played the first of three
games Saturday and told KSL-TV
afterward that she hopes the league
inspires other girls to put on hel-

mets and play tackle football. It


was really awesome because girls
can play with girls, and its full-on
tackle football, Gordon said.
Gordons father is one of the
organizers of the league, which
will consist of three games for
each team. They are using eightman football rules.
Mandy Cook said her daughter
Whitney loves the league.
Shes pumped and shes excit-

ed, Mandy Cook said. Its the


best thing thats come around in
Utah in a long time.
Another participant in the
league, Kat Kirby, shares Gordons
hope that girls tackle football
leagues spread across the state and
country. They go at each other just
as hard as the boys, Kirby said.
Its not flag; its full-on tackle, she said. We hit each other
hard.

American Pharoah gets first work in since winning Preakness


By Josh Abner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOUISVILLE, Ky. Trainer Bob Baffert


was pleased with Kentucky Derby and
Preakness winner American Pharoahs
workout on Tuesday as he prepares for the
Belmont Stakes and his attempt to become
horse racings first Triple Crown winner
since 1978.
The colt breezed four furlongs in :48 at

next 17 batters he faced. On the night, he
worked seven innings, allowing just four
hits and two walks against seven strikeouts
while throwing 90 pitches.
Hes on fire every game, SHP catcher
Blake Marcus said. The first inning was a
surprise because Ive been catching him for
two-and-a-half years, and Ive never seen
him miss spots like that. ... I think it was
just the big stage.
He was obviously nervous. Everyone
was nervous. But then he beared down ... he
started hitting his spots and he got out of it.
From there on it was smooth sailing.

sent a rising shot into left field. Salinas left
fielder Emily Nguyen made the catch just

went pretty good, he was pretty spectacular


out there.

Hes moving like his fluid self, said


Baffert, who is making his fourth attempt at
completing the Triple Crown. He came

back the right way. Thats Pharoah. Thats


the way, when hes on his game, thats the
way he looks. Just really happy with the
way he went.
It was the first serious training for
American Pharoah since his seven-length
Preakness victory in the mud on May 16.
Baffert and Garcias praise was full-throated and appeared more than just perfunctory
pre-race posturing.
He makes my job easier because he is
such a good horse, Baffert said. Today

In the first inning, Johnston sparked the


offense with a one-out single to center. A
cat-and-mouse game ensued between him
and Monterey starting pitcher Gavin Jarvis.
With Johnston taking a massive lead,
Jarvis threw over to first base several times
before finally picking off his opposite
number for the second out of the inning.
But the Gators kept swinging the bats.
Cole March singled to right to set the stage
for cleanup hitter Andrew Daschbach, who
drove a double up the left-center gap that
two-hopped the wall. The long two-bagger
allowed March to score all the way from
first base, giving SHP a 1-0 lead.
Going into the game, we made it a goal
to put a crooked number up early because
scoring runs early gives the pitcher a big
confidence boost, Daschbach said. Today,
[Johnston] didnt even need that. That was

as good as Ive seen him throw. It feels like


every week Im saying that.
Montereys only other threat came in the
sixth inning with singles from David
Gugale and Nick Russo to put runners on the
corners with two outs. But Johnston coaxed
a soaring pop-up to second baseman Mitch
Martella to end the inning.
In the seventh inning, Johnston set down
the side in order, closing it out with a fly
ball to center fielder Schafer Kraemer.
Jarvis also went the distance, allowing
one run on three hits in taking the loss.
Theyre a great hitting team, Johnston
said. Their pitcher was throwing an
absolute gem. So, props to him. Honestly, I
was working my ass off until the very final
out because I didnt know who was going to
come out on top, and we were just lucky
enough to do that.

The win marks the first time in program


history the Gators have advanced to the
CCS championship game. They previously
reached the semifinals three times, the last
coming in 2005. SHP will take on No. 7
Carmel for the title Saturday at Municipal
Stadium.

before the rising ball soared over her head.


We were hitting the ball hard right at
somebody every time, Van Meter said. We
were making great contact all game long.
Gonzalez went on to retire the next nine
batters in a row until Sofia Magnani singled
with two outs in the top of the seventh.
Mifsud followed by legging out a slow
roller to shortstop to bring up No. 6 hitter

Geronimo laced a single to center.
Van Meter, who is the Tigers third-base

coach, didnt hesitate in sending Magnani


to the plate.
Salinas center fielder Marisa Given fielded
the ball and came up firing. She threw a perfect strike to catcher Kaeli Bush, who was
waiting to tag out Magnani.
Which she did to end the inning.
With how [the game] was going and not
getting the ball to drop in much, I had to go
for it, Van Meter said. It had to be a perfect
throw and she made it.
In the bottom of the seventh, Mifsud got

the first out before Bush singled to center to


bring up Torculas. On a 2-2 pitch, Torculas
laced the ball into the gap in left-center.
Reimal rounded the bases and scored well
ahead of the throw to send the Spirit into the
Division III title game Saturday.
It was an abrupt end to the Tigers season,
but Van Meter could not have been more
proud of her team.
It was a great season. The girls worked
hard, Van Meter said. We definitely
deserved to get where we got this season.

work for all season long. And Im just
happy that were getting the opportunity to

and stronger. Im just really proud of the

Cavs complete sweep of Hawks, move into NBA Finals


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND The championship LeBron


James craves more than any other, the one he
came back home to get, is within reach.
The Cavaliers are in the NBA Finals.
James scored 23 points, Kyrie Irving provided a boost after missing two games and
Cleveland reserved a spot in the finals with a
118-88 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on
Tuesday night to win the Eastern Conference
title.
By sweeping the top-seeded Hawks, the Cavs
earned their second trip to the finals, where they
will face either Golden State or Houston starting
June 4.
It will be the fifth straight visit to the leagues
showcase event for the inimitable James, who
returned to Cleveland after four years in Miami
to try and end this citys championship drought
dating to 1964. The Cavs are four wins from
doing it, and if they can, James will have a title
that would put him in a class by himself. Other

travel day for both teams, that Curry is doing
just fine other than the bruise on his head
and should be ready to go for Game 5.
In a different way, the Rockets can relate to
losing a key player in a flash.
Houston was awaiting word from the league
on the status of Dwight Howard, who received
a flagrant 1 foul early in the third quarter after
throwing an elbow at Andrew Boguts head.
Howard could be suspended by accumulation
of flagrant foul points if the NBA upgrades it
to a flagrant 2 after review.
Rockets coach Kevin McHale said Tuesday
that Howard was retaliating to contact made
by Bogut and the flagrant foul should not be
upgraded by the league.

players have won more championships, but


none has ever done it for his ring-starved home
region.
We have everything it takes to win, James
said after the Cavs were presented with the conference trophy.
However, theyve got their eyes on another
one.
Cleveland, owner Dan Gibert said, addressing the crowd. Were not settling for this.
Jeff Teague scored 17 and Paul Millsap 16 for
Atlanta, which won a team-record 60 games during the regular season and made the conference
finals for the first time since 1970. But the
Hawks were no match for the Cavaliers and had
no answer for James, who nearly averaged a
triple-double in the four games.
J.R. Smith added 18 points and Tristan
Thompson had 16 points and 11 rebounds for
the Cavs, who were handed new caps and Tshirts following the win and were joined by
family members on the floor to celebrate.
But unlike 2007, when James ran into center

Zydrunas Ilgauskas arms at the final horn, he


was very business-like after the clock hit zero.
Standing at center court, he turned to Smith
and reminded him there was work still undone.
Four more, James said.
It was a tough way for the Hawks to end a
remarkable season. They survived a tumultuous
offseason, and their young roster gelled in
January when they became the first franchise to
go 17-0 in a calendar month. They went on to
win 19 straight, improved their record by 22
wins over last season and beat Brooklyn and
Washington to make their first conference
finals since 1994.
But an injury to starting forward Thabo
Sefolosha in April was followed by DeMarre
Carroll injuring his knee in the series opener,
before Kyle Korvers season ended in Game 2
with an ankle injury.
Those all hurt, but it was James who inflicted
the most pain.
James carried the Cavs to their first finals
appearance eight years ago, when they were

swept by San Antonio. Cleveland was a heavy


underdog then and it was assumed the Cavs
would get back again. But James left in 2010 to
join the Heat, a move that dropped the Cavaliers
from relevance and into the draft lottery four
straight years. But those days are over
Cleveland and King James reign supreme in the
East.
The Cavs got through the last two rounds
without forward Kevin Love, who sustained a
season-ending shoulder injury. His arrival last
summer, joining James and Irving to form a Big
3, made Cleveland the team to beat in the East.
It didnt go exactly as planned under first-year
coach David Blatt, who left his family in Israel
to take the Cavs job.
Were in Cleveland, Blatt cracked.
Nothing is easy here.
The Cavs lost center Anderson Varejao to a
season-ending Achilles injury in December and
they were 19-20 before trading for Smith, Iman
Shumpert and Timofey Mozgov, a trio that
transformed Cleveland.

I guess the one thing well learn is we


should be the first one to grab, McHale
quipped.
With or without Howard, the Rockets are
trying to do what no NBA team ever has: come
back to win a best-of-seven series after losing
the first three games.
Houston hardly seems afraid of the moment.
The Rockets became just the ninth team to
rally from 3-1 down when they stunned the
Los Angeles Clippers in the second round, and
they believe that experience has prepared
them for an even tougher task ahead.
Our season comes down to winning one
road game, McHale said. Thats not going
to be anything new.
Here are some things to look for in Game 5:

Houston hit 17 to set an NBA record for most


3-pointers combined in a playoff game. Itll
be interesting to see what, if any, defensive
adjustments each team makes on the outside.

4, but just 47-46.

Raining 3s
The long ball has carried both teams all season and perhaps now more than ever. In
Game 4, the Warriors made 20 3-pointers and

Going for 40
The MVP vs. the runner-up has lived up to
the hype so far. Curry scored 40 in Golden
States 115-80 win in Game 3, and Harden followed up a poor performance with 45 points
in Houstons 128-115 win in Game 4. Both
teams will continue to rely on their leading
men to carry them.

Crashing the boards


Houston got back to playing big inside
after a horrendous showing in Game 3, when
the Warriors grabbed 21 more rebounds than
the Rockets and highlights of Curry boxing
out Howard were shown repeatedly. Golden
State still won the rebounding battle in Game

Emerging shooters
Both teams got a big lift from a player who
had been struggling with his shot and are hoping the trend continues. Josh Smith scored 20
points on 7-for-8 shooting, including 3 for 4
from 3-point range, in Game 4. Klay
Thompson finally found his stroke late in the
first half, too. He scored 24 points and made 6
of 13 3-pointers.

Home-court advantage
If the Rockets want to pull off a historic
comeback, theyll need to win twice on
Golden States home floor. The Warriors are
45-3 at raucous Oracle Arena, including 6-1 in
the playoffs. The Rockets played well in the
first two games in Oakland but lost 110-106
and 99-98. Houston last won at Oracle Arena
on Dec. 13, 2013.

QB Christian Ponder makes most of opportunity with Raiders


By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALAMEDA After spending last season


mired on the bench in Minnesota, Christian
Ponder is happy for any chance he gets to work
with the first-team offense.
Even if that chance only comes in offseason
workouts.
Ponder has spent the past two weeks during
the offseason program for the Oakland Raiders
working with the top offense while starter
Derek Carr nurses a finger injury on his throwing hand.
Its a far cry from last season when the former

first-round pick and quarterback who led


Minnesota to the playoffs in his second season
was relegated to third string behind rookie
Teddy Bridgewater and Matt Cassel.
Its nice to be out there getting reps,
Ponder said Tuesday. Last year, I didnt get too
many reps with Matt Cassel and Teddy ahead of
me. So, its good to be out there and get more
reps and get my feet wet.
Carr got hurt earlier in the offseason program
and missed all of the OTAs last week and the
first day this week. He was able to take snaps
and hand the ball off during practice Tuesday but
is not quite ready to throw the ball.
Coach Jack Del Rio said Carr is making

progress but gave no timetable on when Carr


would be able to practice fully again. So for
now, Ponder is running the offense.
Hes a guy that was quarterback of a team
that won 10 games, Del Rio said. Thats not
easy to do in this league. Hes got some experience. Hes seen big moments before. Hes quarterbacked his team to a winning record. That
experience is beneficial, beneficial for him.
Ponders star fell quickly in Minnesota. He
was the 12th overall pick in 2011 out of
Florida State and started 10 games as a rookie.
He played all 16 games the following season,
leading the Vikings to 10 wins and a playoff
berth.

line, allowing Nava to score from second
base with a head-first slide across home
plate for the walk-off win.
We wouldnt have been here without
[Tong], Aragon manager Len Souza said.
At first he felt pretty bad, but I think hes
alright. ... I feel bad for any kid thats got to
go through something like that. But they
gave everything they had.
Both teams came out swinging in the first
inning. Aragon (19-13) produced a pair of
two-out hits, but got nothing to show for it.
Carmel, however, made the most of getting
its leadoff hitter Nava on base.
Nava led off the bottom of the first with a
solid single to center. He advanced to second on a wild pitch then moved to third on
the following pitch when Bifano bunted
him over. Bryson Lino followed with a hot
shot to center field on which Aragon senior
Spencer Walling made a sensational diving
catch for the second out of the inning, but
the sacrifice fly allowed Nava to score from
third, giving Carmel a 1-0 lead.
Carmel took advantage of a huge wild
pitch in the second to score twice. With
Lennie Rodriguez on second base and two
outs, Franquez struck out Carmel No. 9 hitter William Kehoe with an up-and-in fastball. But the pitch went to the backstop,
allowing Kehoe to reach first and Rodriguez
to advance to third. Carmel cashed in on the
miscue when Nava and Bifano laced back-toback RBI singles, giving Carmel a 3-0 lead.
The Padres threatened to do more damage
in the fifth. After Enriquez got hit by a pitch
with two outs, Hayes drilled a double up the
right-center gap to put runners at second and
third. Treadwell then worked the count in
his favor before hitting a bounder over the

third-base bag. Tong made a nice backhanded grab and a long throw across the diamond to get Treadwell by a step.
But play stopped for 45 minutes for the
horrific injury that followed.
Its the worst thing in the world for that
kid, Souza said. Hes a big part of their
program. I feel awful for them. ... But thats
a good team. I think theyll be OK. They can
compete against anybody.
When play resumed, however, Aragon
took advantage of its first leadoff batter to
reach in the game. Not that the Dons didnt
have base runners. They stranded 11 runners
in the game, including five through the first
two innings. But against Carmels bullpen,
David Hermann drew a leadoff walk. Then
Ryan Field shot a one-out single to center.
With two outs, Alex Athanacio hit a booming two-run double to left. And Billy Mason

tied the game with a double down the thirdbase line, scoring Athanacio to make it 3-3.
[The injury] was one of the most awful
things Ive seen, and no disrespect to them,
but it created an opportunity for us to hit the
reset button, Souza said. I pointed out that
the other team was devastated. And were
here to win just like they are. Were not here
to give them the rest of the game.
Athanacio celebrated twice, once while
standing on second base and again as he
crossed home plate with an animated hand
clap.
I was just super pumped up for my team,
Athanacio said. It was a huge moment and
that was our inning to do it because we didnt want to wait until the last minute. ... It
was just a great moment for the whole
team.
Aragon had a chance to take the lead in the

But Ponder struggled in 2013, throwing nine


interceptions and only seven touchdown passes in nine starts before dropping to third-string
last season.
I think its definitely made me better,
Ponder said. Going through those experiences
definitely toughened you mentally and you
learn from a lot of those things. Being able to
experience a different offense in what Norv
Turner was running when he came in last year
helped, being able to look at things differently
and having different perspectives on certain
plays, routes and defenses and stuff. It helped
my football IQ, but it stinks having to go
through stuff like that.
seventh, but the Carmel defense came up
huge. Nava, the shortstop, came up with a
nice running grab in shallow left field to
rob Franquez of a leadoff single. Then after
back-to-back walks to Kyle Tanaka and
Hermann, Tong hit a sinking liner down the
right-field line that Kehoe covered a lot of
ground to get to and make a sliding catch.
Bispo said he was intent on changing
pitchers even before he long play stoppage.
Souza, on the other hand, stayed with
Franquez on the mound.
Hes the best we had, Souza said. He
wanted to be out there. We let him warm up
and if he didnt look crisp we would have
made a move, but no one would have been
that effective against him. No disrespect to
any of the other pitchers we have, he was
our best.
With the win, Carmel advances to
Saturdays Division II championship game.
It is the first time the Padres have made it as
far in Bispos eight years at the helm. They
last appeared in a CCS title game in 2007 in
the third year of their three consecutive CCS
championships.
For the Dons, this years playoff run
marks just the second time in program history they have advanced to the CCS semifinals. The last time was in 1970, when they
were eliminated in the semis by Homestead.
Not only was this one of the best teams
Ive ever played on, but it was one of the
funnest teams Ive ever played on,
Athanacio said. I love this team to death.
All the crap weve been through, being a
14-seed and getting this far, Im proud of
everyone.
According to Bispo, Treadwell was rushed
to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center for
immediate emergency surgery.
He will get the initial surgery there
because they need to do it right away. Then
theyll have the follow-up stuff. ... But in
todays world they can fix anything.

American Sock advances on favorite surface


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PARIS Ah, the French Open, the time of


year when a certain question is asked repeatedly by American tennis fans: Why cant the
countrys players, particularly the men, find
success on red clay?
Now comes along Jack Sock, a 22-year-old
born in Nebraska and currently residing in
Florida, who unabashedly calls the slow stuff
my favorite surface.
Yes, thats right, even though there are not
many red clay courts in the United States
Sock first encountered them in Europe and
even though, at first glance, theyre considered less-than-ideal for players who thrive on
speedy serves and forehands. Sock and another U.S. man, 16th-seeded John Isner, both fit
that description. Both won first-round matches at Roland Garros on Tuesday.

Not traditional clay-court tennis, necessarily. But it worked.
I may have been one of the first to really
like it, said Sock, who won his first ATP singles title last month in Houston on green
clay. For me personally, I look forward to
this time of year.
The 6-foot-10 Isner, who beat Italys
Andreas Seppi 7-5, 6-2, 6-3, is also learning
to like the crushed dirt.
A lot is said about clay and how its a defensive surface. Its sort of, I would say, a misconception, Isner said. I think clay is a very
good attacking surface. A guy like (Rafael
Nadal), yeah, he plays great defense, but
knocks the cover off the ball.

Pentagon chiefs take on IS


undercuts Obamas strategy
By Julie Pace
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Defense Secretary Ash


Carters blunt assessment that Iraqi forces
lack the will to fight undermines a central
premise of President Barack Obamas strategy for defeating the Islamic State: that
Iraqs military can effectively handle ground
operations so Americans dont have to.
Carters comments in a weekend interview reflect deep concern within some quarters of the administration about the capabilities of Iraqs security forces. Despite outnumbering Islamic State forces, the military suffered a major defeat this month in
the city of Ramadi. And some officials question whether it can overcome the same sectarian divisions between Sunnis and the
Shiite-dominated government that gave the
Islamic State space to thrive.
The failure, its not one of courage,
Marina Ottaway, a Middle East analyst at
the Wilson Center, said of the Iraqi military.
Its one of politics.
For now, Obama is showing no sign of
significantly shifting his strategy or easing his opposition to sending American
forces back into combat in Iraq. Instead, the
White House is essentially pleading for

patience and even more time to train Iraqis.


Thats a training process that cant be
done in a week, White House spokesman
Josh Earnest said Tuesday. Thats not a
seven-day training course. This is going to
require a more sustained commitment.
The U.S. already has spent years and billions of dollars trying to position the Iraqi
military to take charge of the countrys
security. As the U.S. military withdrew from
Iraq in 2011 after more than eight years of
war, Obama declared that local forces were
indeed ready to take on that mission.
With a fresh infusion of American trainers
last year and a new Shiite government
pledging to be more inclusive to Sunnis,
Iraqi forces had made apparent progress
against the Islamic State in recent months.
But the rout in Ramadi, the strategically
important capital of Anbar province, highlighted the militarys weakness anew.
Fleeing the city, Iraqi forces abandoned U.S
military vehicles, including tanks, armored
personnel carriers and artillery pieces.
What apparently happened is the Iraqi
forces just showed no will to fight, Carter
said Sunday on CNN. They were not outnumbered. In fact, they vastly outnumbered
the opposing force. That says to me, and I
think to most of us, that we have an issue

to meet at White House in June
WASHINGTON President Barack Obama will meet with
South Korean President Park Geun-hye at the White House
next month.
The White House says the June 16 meeting will give the
leaders an opportunity to reaffirm relations between the
U.S. and a key Asian ally.
Their talks will cover a range of security, economic and
global issues, including the U.S.-South Korea alliance and
its role in assuring stability and security in the region.

His comments echoed Joint Chiefs
Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey, who said
the Iraqi security forces were not driven out
of Ramadi. They drove out of Ramadi.
Iraqi officials disputed Carters characterization of the militarys strength, saying he
had received incorrect information. Vice
President Joe Biden called Prime Minister
Haider al-Abadi in an apparent attempt to

ease his concerns about the U.S. commitment to his security forces, while administration officials quietly tried to clarify the
Pentagon chiefs comments.

announced the start of a major military

Obama urges Senate to renew phone-records program


By Erica Werer
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON President Barack


Obama called on the Senate Tuesday to
extend key Patriot Act provisions
before they expire five days from now,
including the governments ability to
search Americans phone records.
This needs to get done, he told
reporters in the Oval Office. Its necessary to keep the American people
safe and secure.
But with the May 31 deadline fast
approaching, there was scant evidence
Tuesday of a search for a deal on
Capitol Hill. The House and Senate
stood in recess for the week, and a
House GOP leadership aide said there
were no talks happening between the
two chambers. The aide spoke on condition of anonymity, because the aide
was not authorized to discuss the issue
on the record.
The Senate adjourned for its
Memorial Day break early Saturday

This is a very big issue that people are


divided on. Thats what we do. So were going
to work it out in some way and go forward.
But there are deep differences of opinion.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

after a chaotic late-night session during which senators failed to pass a


White House-backed House bill
reforming the phone collection program. Attempts by GOP leaders to
extend current law also repeatedly fell
short, amid objections from presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.,
and others.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch
McConnell is calling the Senate back
into session on Sunday, May 31, just
hours before the midnight deadline,
but its not clear lawmakers will have
any new solution.
Back home in Kentucky on Tuesday,
McConnell offered no hint of how the

impasse might be resolved.


This is a very big issue that people
are divided on. Thats what we do. So
were going to work it out in some way
and go forward. But there are deep differences of opinion, McConnell told
reporters after addressing the
Elizabethtown Rotary Club. Weve
got to figure some way out of this.
The House bill, which passed by a
wide bipartisan margin, was just a few
votes short in the Senate Friday, and
House Republicans appear content to
hold off on a search for compromise in
hopes that pressure will increase on
McConnell to accept their bill or see
the Patriot Act programs lapse.

Artsy coffee chain Blue Bottle brews long queues in Tokyo


By Yuri Kageyama
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TOKYO Japan, famous for green tea, is


welcoming artisanal American coffee roaster
Blue Bottle with long lines that have at
times meant a four-hour wait for a cup.
The company, which began in Oakland,
California, in 2002, hopes its early popularity is more than a passing fad. Japans
consumer culture is littered with manias for
Western food imports: pancakes, popcorn,
doughnuts, even Taco Bell.
Success in Japan is important for Blue
Bottle, which operates 17 cafes in the San
Francisco Bay Area, New York and Los
Angeles. Japan is its first foray outside of
the U.S. Blue Bottle raised nearly $26 million last year to invest in expansion,
including financing from Silicon Valley
executives, setting the stage for a test of
whether an artsy gourmet coffee chain can
go big.
Founder James Freeman, a musician, was
inspired by Japans old-style kissaten
coffee-shops: tiny dimly-lit establish-

ments, with good music and a barista behind


a wooden counter. Think places for quiet
serious thinking and real drip coffee, not
sweet, frivolous drinks.
We care about every part of the coffee. We
call it from seed to cup, said Saki Igawa,
the business operations manager for Blue
Bottle in Japan.
Attention to detail that dovetails with
aspects of Japanese culture accounts for part
of the coffee chains early popularity. The
spread of Starbucks internationally, which
has created a cookie-cutter coffee culture that
some people want to trade up from, is another factor. Blue Bottle is also benefiting from
the image problems in Japan of fast food
chains and highly processed foods.
Its a new era in eating out, said food
industry consultant Jotaro Fujii who contends that Blue Bottles arrival and the
decline of McDonalds in Japan is part of a
bigger trend of consumer interest in the
safety and quality of the entire food supply
chain.

Continued from page 1
McDonalds is suffering declining popularity in Japan, a problem exacerbated after
plastic pieces, and even a tooth, was found
in its food last year, setting off outrage
among consumers.
Upscale burger chain Shake Shack,
which started as a hot dog stand in New
York, is expected to arrive in Japan soon,
said Fujii.
Such chains, including Blue Bottle, are
likely to aim for 50 or at most 100 outlets
in Japan, not the thousands that fast-food
eateries, such as McDonalds, has achieved
here, he said.
Instead, they will focus on fortifying a
brand image, which can lead to other kinds
of lucrative businesses.
Although the prevalent image of Japan
might be tea, it has long had plenty of
affection for coffee.
Starbucks has been a hit since arriving in
1995. It now has more than 1,000 shops in
Japan. Not a single prefecture (state) is
without a Starbucks with one opening in
holdout Tottori Prefecture this month
not surprisingly, welcomed with long
lines.
Even convenience stores are serving
freshly brewed coffee. Japan also invented
manga-kissa, or a cafe-cum-library,
where you can curl up with a comic book
and sip on coffee for hours.
Such newcomers have hammered the once
omnipresent kissaten. Their numbers have
dropped by half from the 1980s, or to
77,000 in 2009, according to a Japanese
government study.
But Blue Bottles popularity is part of a
rediscovery of cafes serving carefully pre-

FOOD
pared, quality coffee, a trend already long
evident in the U.S.
Blue Bottles first Japan shop, which has
a roaster, is in Kiyosumi, an older part of
Tokyo, chosen because it reminded
Freeman, the founder, of Oakland. It
opened in February. The second shop, in a
backstreet of Tokyos fashionable
Omotesando, opened in March.
A third, likely opening later this year in
Tokyos Daikanyama shopping area, will
feature a menu that reflects Blue Bottles
recent acquisition of San Francisco-based
Tartine Bakery, which serves croissants,
sandwiches and pastries.
Blends such as Giant Steps, combining
African and Indonesian-grown beans for a
chocolate taste, sell for 450 yen ($3.75) a
cup. A latte costs 520 yen ($4.30).
On a recent day, the Blue Bottle shop in
Kiyosumi, Tokyo, was filled with sunlight
pouring through huge windows, the hum of
a giant roaster, the fragrant aroma of fresh
coffee and a crowd of people.
Takuya Nakagawa, a 39-year-old hairdresser, who came all the way from rural
Toyama Prefecture (state), was impressed
with the coffees taste and the stores stylish stark decor. He bought granola and coffee beans as souvenir gifts.
I just love the taste, he said. This kind
of place doesnt exist in Toyama.
True to its inspiration, Blue Bottle is
learning from Japan, said Andrew Smith,
29, of San Francisco, a barista and one of
three Americans who came to work for the
chain in Japan.
People here have different ways of conceptualizing about coffee so they taste
things differently, Smith said.
They are looking for different kinds of
things in coffee. And that is a fun way to
learn how everyone in the world perceives
coffee differently.

Taco Bell says it will take out artificial colors, artificial flavors, high-fructose corn syrup and
unsustainable palm oil from its food by the end of 2015.

Taco Bell, Pizza Hut: Artificial


ingredients getting the boot
By Candice Choi
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Taco Bell and Pizza Hut say


theyre getting rid of artificial colors and
flavors, making them the latest big food
companies scrambling to distance themselves from ingredients people might find
unappetizing.
Instead of black pepper flavor, for
instance, Taco Bell will start using actual
black pepper in its seasoned beef, says Liz
Matthews, the chains chief food innovation officer.
The Mexican-style chain also says the
artificial dye Yellow No. 6 will be removed
from its nacho cheese, Blue No. 1 will be
removed from its avocado ranch dressing
and carmine, a bright pigment, will be
removed from its red tortilla strips.
Matthews said some of the new recipes are
being tested in select markets and should be
in stores nationally by the end of the year.
The countrys biggest food makers are facing pressure from smaller rivals that position themselves as more wholesome alternatives. Chipotle in particular has found
success in marketing itself as an antidote to
traditional fast food. In April, Chipotle
announced it had removed genetically modified organisms from its food, even though
the Food and Drug Administration says
GMOs are safe.
Critics say the purging of chemicals is a
response to unfounded fears over ingredients, but companies are nevertheless rushing to ensure their recipes dont become disadvantages. In recent months, restaurant
chains including Panera, McDonalds and
Subway have said theyre switching recipes
for one or more products to use ingredients
people can more easily recognize.
John Coupland, a professor of food science at Penn State University, said companies are realizing some ingredients may not

be worth the potential harm they might


cause to their images, given changing attitudes about additives.
Additionally, he noted that the removal of
artificial ingredients can be a way for companies to give their food a healthy glow
without making meaningful changes to
their nutritional profiles. For instance,
Coupland said reducing salt, sugar or portion sizes would have a far bigger impact on
public health.
Taco Bell and Pizza Hut are owned by Yum
Brands Inc., which had hinted the changes
would be on the way. At a conference for
investors late last year, Yum CEO Greg
Creed referred to the shifting attitudes and
the desire for real food as a revolution in
the industry.
Representatives at KFC and Yums corporate headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky,
were not immediately available to comment
on whether the fried chicken chain would
also be removing artificial ingredients.
Pizza Hut says it will remove artificial flavors and colors by the end of July. It said it
will start listing all it ingredients online
once the changes are completed.
Taco Bell says it will take out artificial
colors, artificial flavors, high-fructose corn
syrup and unsustainable palm oil from its
food by the end of 2015. It says artificial
preservatives will be removed where possible by 2017. The moves do not affect fountain drinks or co-branded products, such as
its Doritos-flavored taco shells.
Brian Niccol, the chains CEO, said the
company would work to keep its menu
affordable.
I do not want to lose any element of
being accessible to the masses, Niccol
said.
When asked whether the changes would
affect taste, a representative for Taco Bell
said in an email that It will be the same
great tasting Taco Bell that people love.

With dates, you can


keep the sweet, lose
the processed sugar
By Melissa DArabian
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

After spending a semester of my sophomore year of college studying abroad, I headed to Tunisia for a week of solo
reflection.
(Note to my daughters: According to your father, you
will not be allowed to do this until you are at least 30.
Same goes for dating.)
I arrived in Tunis way back in 1989 toward the end
of Ramadan, and the sweetest dates Id ever tasted were
everywhere. Even as a tourist, I was offered dates at nearly
every meal roasted and doused with herbed honeys, or
dried and served with mixed nuts as a mid-afternoon snack.
I fell in love with them.
Since then, dates have become far more common in the
U.S. Thats partly because people have discovered they
make a great natural, unprocessed sweetener.
The most common version of dates youll see at your
local grocer is the California medjool date, a large, barelywrinkled plump variety. Dates are delicious and indulgent
to eat just on their own, but you also can blend them into
smoothies (instead of bananas) for a sweet creaminess. Or
pry them open, pop out the pits and fill them with a
spoonful of nut butter (you even can freeze them like
this!).
Want a savory snack? Do the same stuffing routine, but
use a pungent cheese (something blue is nice), and serve
with a glass of wine.
When I indulge my sweet tooth, I like there to be a nutritional payoff along with the treat. Dates fit the bill perfectly. Clearly, dates are naturally incredibly sweet, to the
tune of about 16 grams of sugar per date. But they also
bring other nutrients to the table, including 1.5 grams of
fiber, B vitamins, potassium and other minerals.

CHOCOLATE-ALMOND QUINOA BARS


Start to finish: 1 hour
Servings: 12
1 cup raw almonds, chopped
1/2 cup whole flax seeds
1/2 cup raw quinoa, rinsed and drained
1 cup packed, pitted medjool dates
2 tablespoons almond butter
3 tablespoons warm water
1/3 cup chopped bittersweet chocolate (or chopped bittersweet chocolate chips)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Heat the oven to 375 F. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking dish
with kitchen parchment, letting it hang over the sides.
Combine the almonds, flax seeds and quinoa on a
rimmed baking sheet. Toast in the oven, stirring every 3
minutes, until well toasted and fragrant, 10 to 14 minutes.
Let cool completely. Lower the oven to 200 F.
Meanwhile, in a food processor combine the dates,
almond butter and water. Process until smooth. You may
need to scrape down the sides several times during processing. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Once the
almond-quinoa mixture is cooled, stir them into the date
mixture, along with the chocolate and salt.
Using wet fingers, press the mixture firmly into the
parchment-lined baking dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes,
or until the bars are no longer sticky. Let cool completely, then use the parchment to lift out of the pan and cut
into 12 bars. Bars can be stored in an airtight container at
room temperature for up to 2 weeks.

DIY ice cream thats almost as

e all think were going to


do it. Many of us even go
out and buy the pricey special equipment for it. Because when
summers heat hits, its hard not to

do-it-yourself ice cream.
Except that most of us will actually
make ice cream at home all of about
once ... Maybe. Because while making ice cream isnt difficult, it tends
to be fussy. And most of us dont do
fussy all that well. Particularly when
its so much easier to just flip on
Netflix, grab a spoon and down an
entire pint of purchased ice cream on
the couch.
But what if there was an easier way

are the men who
dreamed up crazy
delicious cones like the Salty Pimp
(vanilla ice cream, dulce de leche, nuts
and salt) and Mountain Dew sorbet.
Tucked deep in the book which is
written and designed to resemble an

must-make recipe: cheater soft serve

It goes something like this: Soften

And then there is Leslie
Bilderbacks No-churn Ice Cream
(St. Martins, 2015), which offers
100 less hilarious, but nonetheless
delicious recipes for ice cream that
require no special equipment and no
hard work. She does a great job walking you through utterly easy recipes,
everything from basic vanilla and
chocolate to more robust creations,
such as sweet potato-marshmallow
swirl ice cream.
None of this, of course, means you
cant still eat a pint on the couch.

PARKING
Continued from page 1
give deeper consideration to implementing
a permit program in neighborhoods, as
many residents frequently complain about
the lack of available parking on the street
in front of their homes.
Lets do a little more research and see if
we can make it work, said Garbarino.
City Manager Mike Futrell said though
officials are reluctant to set up a neighborhood permit program, residents should not
feel the city is turning a blind eye to parking problems in residential areas.
Instead, he said the city will continue to
strictly enforce parking violations in
neighborhoods based on complaints from
residents.
If there were an easy solution to the
parking problem, we would have already
done it, said Futrell.
The city has a limited preferential parking program in place on the streets near the
BART station, to ensure that train riders are
not consuming all the street spots in the
Sunshine Gardens, Buri Buri and
Promenade neighborhoods.
Cars without parking permits on the 19
streets around the BART station must be
moved every three hours or face receiving a
citation, and cars with permits are allowed
to stay in place for up to three days.
During a parking study earlier this year,
of the roughly 250 cars in the region monitored by enforcement officers chalking

BOND
Continued from page 1
The district Board of Trustees is slated to
approve a facilities master plan during its
meeting Wednesday, May 27, which lays
out the various issues to be addressed by the
$193 million bond measure officials are
considering putting on the fall ballot.
But there are roughly $390 million worth
of fixes and updates necessary to the districts campuses, which could indicate officials may consider laying the groundwork
for a second bond measure in coming years.
John Gill Elementary as well as Garfield
and Taft community schools are among the
top priorities to receive a majority of the
funds from the bond measure, as all require
about $20 million or more in improvements, which would consume about $66
million of the $141 million that would likely to be available for projects, should the
bond pass, according to a district report.
But all district schools will benefit from
improvements identified in the plan,
Superintendent Jan Christensen wrote in an
email.
Most of our schools are 50 years old, and
three are more than 80 years old. The

LOCAL
their tires, and only 27 were issued citations, according to the report.
By contrast, over the same two-week
period, 175 parking citations were written
for cars parked downtown violating parking codes, according to the report.
Judging from the precedent established
in the contrast of the studies, city
resources would be more efficiently allocated in continuing to monitor downtown
parking, rather than attempting to expand
the enforcement across the city, where
demand may not be as great.
Although the BART parking study was
intended to determine if BART riders were
intruding into these neighborhoods, the
same study is beneficial in assisting with
deciding whether the city of South San
Francisco should implement a citywide
preferential parking policy, according to
the report. The BART survey demonstrated
far fewer parking citations will be issued
while the costs of paying for the officers
and maintaining their vehicles remain the
same.
The city would need to consider charging
an annual fee for monitoring every parking
permit issued to the nearly 10,000 cars currently in the city to help offset the cost of
enforcing the program, according to the
report.
Additionally, four new parking enforcement officers would need to be hired to help
implement the neighborhood parking program, and all parking enforcement vehicles would need new license plate recognition technology, and at least four new clerical workers would need to be brought in to
schools need updates to current health, safety, fire and earthquake standards. The only
way for the district to pay for the improvements detailed in the facilities master plan
is by issuing a bond, she said. No other
source of funding exists at this time; the
state is not providing adequate funds for
upgrading and repairing our schools.
Most of the bond money should be used to
modernize and reconfigure classrooms and
offices with structural upgrades, and
improvements to windows, doors, floors,
ceilings and paint, according the priorities
identified in the report.
Existing buildings also need better sewer
and plumbing systems, along with lighting
and electrical upgrades, as well as improved
safety and security systems such as new student drop-off areas, exterior lighting fixtures, fencing, fire alarms, public address
systems, alarms and cameras, among other
needs.
A previous report showing polling data
found nearly 70 percent of 400 likely voters
in the upcoming election would support a
$189 million bond, well above the 55 percent threshold necessary for voter
approval.
The district should consider a bond that
would cost owners $30 per $100,000 of
assessed home value, as there is likely sufficient voter support for such a measure,

administer the permits, according to the


report.
But Garbarino said perhaps the city
should consider looking into other cities
that have citywide parking programs, such
as San Francisco, as guidance to see what a
successful model looks like.
According to the report, should South
San Francisco move forward with a residential parking permit program, it would be
the only city on the Peninsula to implement such a policy.
The city would be better served to focus
its parking enforcement emphasis on
downtown, as the greatest issue already
lies there, and concerns are expected to be
compounded as the region undergoes renovations detailed in the recently approved
downtown specific plan, according to the
report.
according to the poll report.
In that scenario, an owner of a $1 million
home in Redwood City would be required to
pay the district $300 per year toward the
bond.
Pollsters also suggested that the district
move forward with the bond effort as soon
as possible, with an eye toward the likely
need to go back and ask for additional
resources through another tax measure in
coming years.
The district would need to approve the
bond this summer for it to make it to the fall
ballot.
Christensen said the current bond proposal would go toward fixing the most substantial issues on school campuses.
The need for improvements is great, but
by law the district can only issue a bond of
about $190 million at this time, she said.
While this will not cover all of our needs as
outlined in the facilities master plan, it will
address our highest priority and most pressing needs if the board votes to move forward
with a bond, and if it is approved by voters.
The district has roughly $11 million currently in various funds that can be used to
address building concerns.
Should voters approve the bond, the district would only be able to allocate $141
million to projects, and a remaining third of

THE DAILY JOURNAL


There will be another report presented to
the council next year regarding enforcing
parking in and around downtown.
Futrell said he hopes that through a variety of efforts, the city can work to improve
parking throughout South San Francisco,
even if there is not a single, ideal solution.
There is no silver bullet, he said.
But Garbarino said he is holding out
hope the city might give further consideration to a broader parking enforcement policy.
Maybe it could go back to the drawing
board for a little more study, he said.
Also at the meeting, the council is set to
approve a new contract for police officers,
which would grant a 7.5 percent pay raise
over three years.
The deal would allow for a 4.5 percent

the fund would be required to be set aside to
cover the cost of escalation, interim housing for displaced students, and other contingencies, according to the report.
The district has also budgeted to receive
more than $6 million in fees from residential developers who are required to pay for
the impact that an influx of students will
have on school campuses.
Fees from developers are available to be
used for classroom and campus upgrades.
Improvements across the district to existing classrooms, infrastructure and technology are required to implement modern learning and education programs, according to
the report.
Christensen noted that the priorities identified in the facilities plan are not set in

The proposed plan is subject to discussion by the board tonight and could change

Bob Marley musical tries to help heal Baltimore


By Mark Kennedy
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Most theater professionals like to say that whatever


theyre working on is very relevant to
whats going on in the real world. That
was not possibly more true than in
Baltimore this spring.
The citys flagship theater, Center
Stage, debuted a musical about reggae
icon and civil rights activist Bob
Marley during the citys spasm of violence and peaceful protests following
the death of Freddie Gray in police custody.

BRENNAN
Continued from page 1
Most of the public who spoke at the
meeting actually offered support for
Brennans leadership and her desire to
bring transparency to the oft-troubled
district.
But others, such as Mavericks pioneer Jeff Clark, said Brennan had
attempted to obstruct his livelihood
and that she meddled in his business.
I hate being here listening to everyone who drank your Kool-Aid, Clark
said about Brennans supporters.
The commission voted last week 30-2 to stick with Cartel Management
and Clark to produce the Titans of
Mavericks event after Brennan
allegedly showed interest in a competing bid from the World Surf League.
Brennan abstained from voting to
grant the special use permit to Cartel

PETS
Continued from page 1
Volunteers such as Redwood City
resident Kristy Roberts also socialize
with the cats and others provide the
dogs with plenty of opportunities to
run free.
Roberts lost her beloved cat a long
time ago and hasnt replaced it yet.
She spends time at the shelter socializing with mostly adult felines waiting
to be adopted.
Im here for the cats and Im here for
me. I just like being around them,
Roberts said.
Other volunteers provide foster
homes for pets waiting to be adopted
and others even pay for some of their
medical bills, Baggs said.
Baggs calls her job rewarding as
animal lovers continue to provide the
help the shelter needs to accomplish

Several preview performances for the


musical Marley were lost amid
protests marching near the theater and
the actors had to rush to finish
rehearsals early on several evenings to
accommodate a city-wide curfew.
There were soldiers, horses and
armored vehicles in the streets and helicopters in the air as the cast and crew
tried to finish a work that highlighted
the life of a singer who demanded
social justice and freedom for black
people.
A new framing scene was added to the
play in which two black men watch
footage of the Baltimore protests on a

smartphone, making the connection


between the two movements clear. On
May 2, the cast went out into the streets
to give a free concert, including
singing One Love to try to heal the
city.
When real life is happening around
you and youre trying to produce art,
you have to submit to real life and have
faith, said Kwame Kwei-Armah, Center
Stages artistic director who also wrote
and directed the Marley musical.
Im not sure in my life that Ill ever
feel that connected or ever feel that
blessed or ever feel that visceral call
that theater is about the here and now.

after previously approving the contract in years past.


Bernardo said Brennan had manufactured the surf conflict.
Both the Local Agency Formation
Commission, or LAFCo and San
Mateo County Civil Grand Jury have
called for the dissolution of the district, reporting that it would be better
managed by the county.
On Wednesday, LAFCo is expected to
release a draft report on the districts
operations and many suspect the
agency will once again side with dissolution.
On May 4, the Board of
Commissioners
unanimously
approved to appoint Lazof as its interim general manager to allow Scott
Grindy to return to his job as harbormaster.
The district is conducting a national
search to replace former 17-year general manager Peter Grenell, who retired
early this year.
Brennan and Grenell also butted

heads before he announced his retirement. She filed a complaint against


Grenell after first being elected to the
commission in 2012.
That complaint, she said, led to at
least two complaints filed against her
by employees of the district, including
current Finance Director Debra
Galarza, who alleges Brennan harassed
her.
I have no control over the districts
legal fees, said Brennan, who noted
her own legal bills are mounting related to the complaints.
The complaints have been stacked
up against me by staff, she said.
She was chastised for filing a constant barrage of public records
requests to district staff by both her
and her friends.
After Brennan announced her desire
to step down, she nominated Mattusch
to take over as president, who was then
approved unanimously by the board.
David was then voted in as vice president.

its no-kill mission.


She recalls a dog named Milo being
fostered by shelter supporter Sheela
Pai and her family.
Milos medical conditions include
corneal dystrophy (eye condition),
ischemic dermatopathy (skin condition) and squamous cell carcinoma
(cancer).
But Milo plays at the dog park,
walks the Pai children to school and is
otherwise living a peaceful life, Baggs
said.
It touches your heart, Baggs said.
Another animal lover offered to pay
for the eye surgery one cat needed, she
said.
Pets in Need completely relies on
donations from the public and gets no
government assistance, she said.
As it prepares to celebrate its 50th
birthday June 27, the agency is set to
expand its search for pets about to be
euthanized to the East Bay and as far
away as Los Banos.
It hopes to rescue pets in Fresno and

Modesto soon, Baggs said.


Pets in Need intends to provide free
spay and neuter services for any
California resident and has a mobile
van that houses the tools needed to do
the job.
The key is to get the animals adopted so that the agency can rescue more
pets.
It adopted out 45 pets in April and
this months goal is to adopt out 47.
The agencys website also features pictures and profiles on the animals in its
care.
Pets in Need hosts monthly adoption events throughout the area and
next month as it celebrates its
anniversary, it will be a part of the
Redwood
City
Rotary
Club
Foundations Great American Car
Raffle. The prize is a Honda Civic and
all raffle proceeds will go to Pets in
Need.

Fighters backing
exiled government
capture Yemen city
By Ahmed Al-Haj
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANAA, Yemen Fighters backing


Yemens exiled government captured a key
city on the road to the port city of Aden,
officials said Tuesday, the pro-government
forces first significant victory since a
Saudi-led coalition began targeting Shiite
rebels in airstrikes.
The fighters took Dhale, home to the
command center of the 33rd Armored
Brigade, the countrys largest army unit that
had been loyal to former Yemeni leader Ali
Abdullah Saleh. Saleh has backed the
rebels, known as Houthis, in their power
grab across Yemen that began last
September.
Government-allied fighters seized tanks,
rocket launchers and ammunition caches
from the base at Dhale, some 120 kilometers (75 miles) from Aden, said the officials,
speaking on condition of anonymity
because they were not authorized to talk to
reporters.
Footage from Dhale aired on the Saudifunded Al-Arabiya satellite news network
showed fighters in one armored vehicle flying the flag of once-independent South
Yemen. The fighters, though allied with
exiled President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi,
also want an independent southern state in

the country, which was only unified in


1990.
Dozens of fighters on both sides have
been killed in intense clashes around Dhale
in the past two weeks. Fighting between
them still raged Tuesday on the citys outskirts, officials said.
The officials also said that in the city of
Taiz, three civilians were killed and over 20
wounded when a mortar shell hit a passenger
bus in the city center. Combatants on each
side accused the other of firing the errant
shell, which happened during intense fightREUTERS
ing involving heavy weapons.

Closed-door trial in Iran of Washington Post reporter begins


By Nasser Karimi
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TEHRAN, Iran An Iranian security court


on Tuesday began the closed-door espionage
trial of an Iranian-American reporter for The
Washington Post who has been detained for
more than 10 months.
Jason Rezaian, the Posts 39-year-old
bureau chief in Tehran, is being tried in a
Revolutionary Court on allegations of espionage for the hostile government of the
United States and propaganda against the
Islamic Republic, Irans official IRNA news
agency reported.
The IRNA report did not elaborate.
Rezaians brother, Ali Rezaian, later told the
Associated Press in Washington that the pro-

ceeding largely involved him hearing the


charges. Rezaians lawyer, Leila Ahsan,
could not be reached for comment.
The Post has said Rezaian faces from 10 to
20 years in prison if convicted.
Rezaian, his wife Yeganeh Salehi and two
photojournalists were detained on July 22 in
Tehran. All were later released except
Rezaian, who was born and spent most of his
life in the United States, and who holds both
American and Iranian citizenship. Iran does
not recognize other nationalities for its citizens.
Salehi, wearing a traditional black Islamic
veil, refused to talk to waiting reporters as
she left the courthouse after the hearing
Tuesday. She looked upset and covered her
face with the scarf as she departed in a yellow

taxi, sitting in the back seat next to an older


woman. The Post later reported Rezaians
mother, Mary Rezaian, had accompanied her
to court, but also could not attend.
Last week, Rezaians lawyer said Salehi,
who is a reporter for The National newspaper
in the United Arab Emirates capital of Abu
Dhabi, and a freelance photographer who
worked for foreign media, also will stand
trial. The photographers name has not been
made public.
The Post and U.S. diplomats have criticized Rezaians detention and the handling of
the case. Salehi has been barred from travel-

ing abroad, the Post said, adding that its


requests for a visa for a senior editor to travel to Iran went unanswered.
There is no justice in this system, not an
ounce of it, and yet the fate of a good, innocent man hangs in the balance, Washington
Post Executive Editor Martin Baron said in a
statement. Iran is making a statement about
its values in its disgraceful treatment of our
colleague, and it can only horrify the world
community.
Ali Rezaian said he believed Iranian
authorities had two main documents they
were using at his brothers trial.
