Budget offers opportunity for cautious optimism


San Bruno officials say state revenue will improve district finances, but cause for concern remains
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Wary of long-term financial


challenges, San Bruno Park
Elementary School District officials are hopeful Gov. Jerry
Browns expected injection of billions of additional dollars into the

state budget will help solve their


immediate monetary concerns.
During a budget study session
held Wednesday, June 10, at the
former site of Crestmoor
Elementary School, the San Bruno
Park Elementary School District
Board of Trustees received an
update from the recently hired

Assistant Superintendent of
Business Services Sean McGinn
outlining the districts financial
footing for the coming year.
And though initial indications
are that officials will be able to
back away from the threat of having to shut down vital education
services, the resonating senti-

ment is that the district is not out


of the woods yet.
We have to be very careful
about our approach, said
McGinn. We are just going one
year at a time here.
The degree to which the districts financial footing will be
improved by the budget is yet to

be determined until the Legislature


passes it, estimated to be Monday,
and the governor signs it by the
end of the month. However, based
on the most recent revision made
public in May, officials will likely no longer need to consider shar-

Hotel project faces vote


Project faces San Carlos Planning Commission
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The Landmark Hotel development in San


Carlos is looking to clear some key hurdles
Monday night as the Planning Commission
will vote on whether to recommend the
project for approval to the City Council.
The 204-room upscale extended stay hotel
on four floors is slated to be built on three
parcels the city bought last year on
Industrial Road and East San Carlos Avenue.
Buildings on the three parcels will be
demolished and the developer, RD Olson,
will be responsible to clean up any contamination in the soil left over from the
Pyromet Industries metal product manufacturing site.
The Pyromet land was found to have high
levels of trichloroethene solvent in it from
an above-ground storage tank cleaned up in
2004.
After the buildings are demolished, however, the developer would have to test the
soil and remove it if it is found to have any

contaminants in it, according to a staff
report by Principal Planner Lisa Costa
Sanders.
The hotel development has space for 165
parking spaces on 3.92 acres with Highway
101 running along the eastern border of the
site.
The land is home now to Advanced Sports
Performance and Society skate park.
At the same Monday night meeting, the
Planning Commission will also consider
approving conditional use permits for the
two businesses currently located at 850 E.
San Carlos Road to relocate to 505 Quarry
Road, where Affinity Badminton and
Rockin Jump are located.
Advanced Sports Performance looks to
occupy 8,400 square feet of space to provide
training for individuals and groups.

Society is an indoor skate park that will


occupy 3,600 square feet on the property.
The hotel project includes a mix of 143 studios, 38 one bedrooms and 23 two bedrooms.
Amenities for hotel guests include a
lobby, dining area with limited food service, fitness room, 1,500-square-foot meeting room available for public use with an
adjacent outdoor patio, outdoor seating with
a fire pit, pool and space for a sport court.
The outdoor amenities are screened from
public view by a fence and landscaping.
An internal walking path is designed
around the property that is accessible to the
public. The developer is also proposing
landscape planting along the west side of
Industrial Road to screen the project from
the adjacent neighborhood and for overall
beautification, according to the principal
planners report.
The San Carlos Planning Commission
will v ote on both projects at its nex t meeting, 7 p.m., Monday, June 15, City Hall,
600 Elm St.

Man who fled police pleads no contest to auto theft

the San Mateo County District Attorneys
Office.
In exchange for the no contest plea, Ivan

California tries to save


salmon in Wine Country creeks
SONOMA California is taking desperate steps to save the last endangered salmon
in Wine Country creeks that are going dry
because of over-pumping and the drought,
officials said Thursday.

of the Russian River in Sonoma County that
state workers have been dispatched with nets

Gonzalez, a San Jose resident, had been


pulled over in a 1990 Buick LaSabre for a
broken taillight and expired registration at
Verbena and Camellia drives on May 4.
But Gonzalez sped away, driving at 45
mph on residential streets until he lost control of the car and crashed into a fence about
a fifth of a mile down the road, prosecutors
said.
The officer chased him there and pulled up
behind the LaSabre. Gonzalez then threw
the car in reverse and rammed into the officers patrol car, prosecutors said.
The officer, who wasnt injured, arrested
Gonzalez and realized the LaSabre had been
stolen. Gonzalez fled to avoid being arrest-

ed for auto theft and for several arrest warrants out of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, prosecutors said.
He had been charged with three felonies,
including evading police, driving without a
license and auto theft, but ultimately pleaded no contest to only the auto theft charge,
prosecutors said.
He had been also charged in misdemeanor
cases involving identity theft and drugs.
Prosecutors agreed to dismiss those charges
on the condition that he pay restitution in
those cases. A restitution hearing is scheduled for June 23.
Gonzalez remains in custody on $75,000
bail, prosecutors said.

Union-backed Dems
make final push to kill
presidents trade bill
By Charles Babington
and Erica Werner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Union-backed
Democrats launched a last-ditch
effort Thursday to scuttle President
Barack Obamas trade agenda by
sacrificing a favored program of
their own that retrains workers displaced by international trade.
The retraining program is linked
to the Democrats real target: legislation to help Obama advance
multi-nation trade agreements. In
hopes of bringing down the whole
package, which they say imperils
jobs at home, numerous House
Democrats said they would vote
Friday against the retraining measure. House Republicans were in the
odd position of supporting
Obamas bid for fast-track tradenegotiating authority, while the
White House struggled to come up
with enough Democratic votes to
win passage.
Obama himself, whos been
unusually personally engaged on a
bill that could amount to the
biggest achievement of his second
term, paid a surprise visit to the
annual congressional baseball
game Thursday night for some 11th
hour persuading. Obama arrived as
Democratic and Republican lawmakers faced off at Nationals Park
and was greeted with chants of
TPA! TPA! from the GOP side
the acronym for the Trade

Promotion
Authority fast
track bill. He
brought beer and
visited with lawmakers on both
sides.
Earlier, in a
closed meeting
in the Capitol,
Barack Obama top
White
House officials
implored Democrats not to deny
Obama the trade authority. Such a
vote, they said, would block needed
trade expansion for the nation and
sink a major priority of the
Democratic president.
The
sometimes
emotional
exchanges illustrated the high
stakes and intense feelings surrounding Obamas bid for fast
track trade-negotiating authority.
Such authority, which previous
presidents have enjoyed, would let
Obama present Congress with proposed trade agreements that it could
ratify or reject but not change.
Obama hopes to advance the 12nation Trans-Pacific Partnership
and other trade proposals that have
been negotiated for years.
Unions vehemently oppose such
deals, saying they ship U.S. jobs
abroad.
The trade issues divisiveness
was evident when the House voted
narrowly, 217-212, on a procedure
to advance the package to Fridays
expected showdown.

Paul Ryan gestures at a news conference on Taxpayers Protection Alliance on Trade Promotion Authority.

Paul Ryans step-by-step


future starts with trade
By Laurie Kellman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON First, give


presidents the power to strike
trade deals. Then, overturn
President Barack Obamas health
care law, overhaul the tax code and
rework the nations welfare system. And someday? Perhaps a run
for president.
You might call it the New Ryan
Plan, a map not just to change the
nations fiscal policy, but to Paul
Ryans future. It steers the nine-

term Republican congressman and


chairman of the House Ways and
Means Committee into the thicket
of policy fights. The path likely
takes him to a familiar decision
point whether to run for president. The 45-year-old Ryan said he
might take that step, someday.
I wouldnt rule out running for
president ever, he said in an interview this week with the Associated
Press, looking not much older
than he did in 2012 as Mitt
Romneys running mate. Just not
now.

Thats because Ryan is on Step


One of his plan: Shepherding the
fast track trade bill that would
give Obama the power to swiftly
push the long-negotiated TransPacific Partnership with Japan,
Malaysia, Canada, Mexico and
several others. The drive to pass
the legislation puts Ryan in an
oddball alliance: Working with the
president who defeated Romney
and Ryan three years ago and
against a bloc of conservatives for
whom giving the Democratic president more power is anathema.

Can Marriage Exist Between

Science And Religion?


By Paul Larson
MILLBRAE

Some
say
that
science and religion
dont mix. Some
say that science is
the ultimate search
for God. Some say
religion supersedes
science, some say both have equal stature
and others say both are hogwash. Everyone
has their own personal assessment of the
correlation between science and religion.
The aspiration of religion along with the
aspiration of science is to explain the
universe and answer questions about life, in
addition to satisfying human psychological
needs when dealing with the realities of
death. Religion is based on faith, science is
based on observation, and both are based on
human curiosity and the need to find
answers. Whether a person is repetitively
reading religious scripture, or fascinated by
repeatable scientific experimentations, both
are searching for methods that answer
questions about the universe around us.
It can be debated that early humans
turned to religion as a way to alleviate their
fears and gain reassurance with the concept
of life after death. This helped to give them
a sense of order in a confusing world that
often seemed mysterious.
Eventually
scientific realization evolved along side
religion and the process of trial and error
established itself as a way to solve some of
these mysteries. Firethe wheelfarming.
The more humans observed the world they
lived in, the more they leaned how the
natural world worked and how they could
manipulate it to their advantage. Over the
centuries religious power came at odds with
scientific discovery, which led to a period of

scientific stagnation: The Dark Ages.


Later at the dawn of The Renaissance
science was again embraced leading to great
advances in art, architecture, medicine,
astronomy and other natural sciences. Over
the ages science and religion have been
evolving together on a roller coaster ride of
acceptance, denial and equilibrium.
We now appear to be at a crossroads
where religion is not only viewing science
with an evaluative broadmindedness, but is
exploring hand in hand with scientific
processes.
One prime example is the
Vaticans
Pontifical
Academy
of
Sciences. Quoting John Paul II: ...today
eminent scientists are members a visible
sign of the profound harmony that can
exist between the truths of science and the
truths of faith.... Gregor Mendel, the father
of Genetics, was an Augustinian Friar.
Georges Lemaitre, who developed much of
the Big Bang Theory, was a Belgian priest.
Recently, Pope Francis, who has a Masters
Degree in Chemistry, insisted that there is
no reason to believe that science and God
are incompatible.
With all this in mind, every human being
is unique as a fingerprint, and every human
brain has its own unique consciousness.
Whether you analyze with your religious cap
or your science cap, matrimony between the
two could be found by looking inward. So,
close your eyes, examine your deep
thoughts, and you may detect a rational
enlightenment finely attuned to both.

funeral matters or want to make preplanning arrangements please feel free to

San Bruno man guilty of murdering girlfriend
A San Bruno man was convicted Thursday for murdering
his girlfriend in 2013, according to the San Mateo County
District Attorneys Office.
Albert Antonio Trejo, 51, faces 91
years to life in prison for shooting his
then 36-year-old girlfriend Cecilia
Zamora in the back of the head.
Zamoras body was found at a Pacifica
apartment complex two months after her
mother first reported her missing.
Trejo, Zamora and several other people lived together in a San Bruno resiAlbert Trejo dence and the two were romantically
involved. On Feb. 20, 2013, Zamoras
mother reported her missing to the police and a search was
launched in both San Francisco and San Mateo counties
because she was thought to possibly be at a cousins home
in the city.
Residents last reported seeing Zamora the morning of
Feb. 13 in the home with Trejo. Another occupant reported
that Trejo called him, possibly crying, and talking about
his gun having gone off. When the other residents got
home, Trejo reportedly was doing laundry and told them
Zamora left after the pair had an argument, according to the

Caretaker guilty of stealing from elderly woman


A jury convicted 66-year-old Letecia Markum, a former
caretaker at an assistant living facility in Millbrae, of
stealing from one of its residents Thursday, according to
the San Mateo County District Attorneys Office.
The 86-year-old victim noticed some of her gold jewelry
missing from her room and contacted management who
then placed some fake jewelry in the room and installed a
camera to see who the culprit might be.
In the 24-28 hours between placing the one stolen bait
necklace and the victims discovery of the theft, only three
people entered the room. The caretaker and maintenance
man were present with the victim; Markum, however,
entered while the victim was at breakfast and was in the
room for no discernible purpose, according to the District
Attorneys Office.
Though the theft was not caught on camera, the defendant
lied to her boss and claimed she did not go into the victims apartment. She denied stealing but immediately
walked away from the job she had held for 14 years, according to the District Attorneys Office.
She was sentenced to 120 days in county jail and three
years supervised probation.

Union: Hackers have personnel


data on every federal employee
By Ken Dilanian
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Hackers stole personnel data and Social Security numbers for every federal employee, a government worker union said Thursday,
asserting that the cyber theft of U.S.
employee information was more damaging than the Obama administration
has acknowledged.
Sen. Harry Reid, the Democratic
leader, said on the Senate floor that the
December hack into Office of
Personnel Management data was carried out by the Chinese without
specifying whether he meant the
Chinese government or individuals.
Reid is one of eight lawmakers briefed
on the most secret intelligence information. U.S. officials have declined to
publicly blame China, which has
denied involvement.
J. David Cox, president of the
American Federation of Government
Employees, said in a letter to OPM
director Katherine Archuleta that based
on the incomplete information the
union received from OPM, We believe
that the Central Personnel Data File
was the targeted database, and that the
hackers are now in possession of all
personnel data for every federal
employee, every federal retiree, and up
to one million former federal employees.
The OPM data file contains the
records of non-military, non-intelligence executive branch employees,
which covers most federal civilian
employees but not, for example, members of Congress and their staffs.

REUTERS

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid speaks to reporters following the Democrat
Senate weekly policy lunch.
The union believes the hackers stole
military records and veterans status
information, address, birth date, job
and pay history, health insurance, life
insurance and pension information;
and age, gender and race data, he said.
The letter was obtained by the
Associated Press.
The union, which does not have
direct access to the investigation, said
it is basing its assessment on
sketchy information provided by
OPM. The agency has sought to downplay the damage, saying what was
taken could include personnel file
information such as Social Security
numbers and birth dates.

We believe that Social Security


numbers were not encrypted, a cybersecurity failure that is absolutely indefensible and outrageous, Cox said in
the letter. The union called the breach
an abysmal failure on the part of the
agency to guard data that has been
entrusted to it by the federal workforce.
Samuel
Schumach,

the information that might have been

Three space station astronauts safely return to Earth


By Ivan Sekretarev
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DZHEZKAZGAN, Kazakhstan A threeperson crew from the International Space


Station landed safely in the steppes of
Kazakhstan on Thursday after a longerthan-expected orbital stint.
NASA astronaut Terry Virts, Samantha
Cristoforetti of the European Space
Agency and Russias Anton Shkaplerov
returned to Earth after 199 days on the station, nearly a month longer than planned.
Because of the delayed return,
Cristoforetti, an Italian, has now spent
more continuous time in space than any
other woman, surpassing by several days
the mark set by a NASA astronaut in 2007.
The trios Soyuz capsule landed on
schedule at 7:44 p.m. local time (1344
GMT; 9:44 a.m. EDT) about 145 kilometers (90 miles) southeast of the city of
Dzhezkazgan, in what a NASA commentator described as a textbook homecoming.

Im doing great. I feel really good,
Virts said.
After the check-up, the crew members
were to be flown by helicopter to the city
of Karaganda, where they were to board
planes back home.
The missions extension was caused by
the failed launch of a Russian cargo ship
in April.
The Soyuz rocket that failed in April is
used to launch spacecraft carrying crews,
so Russian space officials delayed the
crews return and further launches pending
an investigation.
A Soyuz rocket successfully launched a
satellite last week. Another Soyuz will
launch a Progress cargo ship to the station
in early July to be followed by the launch
of a new crew later in the month.

Israel: Gaza militants fired


rocket that hit inside Gaza
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

JERUSALEM Gaza militants


fired a rocket at Israel on Thursday,
the military said, adding the projectile fell short and exploded
inside the coastal territory ruled
by the Islamic militant group
Hamas.
Sirens wailed in some areas
warning of the attack late
Thursday night and the military

initially said it had hit the area of


southern Israel where the sirens
had gone off.
Soon later it said the rocket had
landed prematurely, falling inside
Gaza. There were no reports of
injuries.
Rocket fire has mostly subsided
since last summers war between
Gazas militant Hamas rulers and
Israel, but there have been sporadic attacks, which increased in

frequency over the past few weeks.


Israel holds Hamas responsible
for all attacks from the coastal territory.
Recent attacks have been
claimed by Gaza militants who
support the Islamic State group
fighting in Iraq and Syria. Those
militants are in a rivalry with
Hamas and they say their rockets
are in retaliation for a Hamas
crackdown on their members.

OPINION

THE DAILY JOURNAL

Vote for housing and the taxes to pay for it


By Nancy Mangini

ynthia Cornells May 29


Daily Journal guest perspective laid out in detail the
social stresses caused by our current
and growing lack of affordable housing the Bay Area.
Everyone understands and recognizes the problem. Its the solution
that is being contested.
Ms. Cornell notes that without
local access to decent, affordable
housing, members of our community
who provide the infrastructure services that we all depend upon, i.e., medical workers, journalists, secretaries,
roofers, grocery clerks, etc. will
no longer be able to live here and that
seniors are being forced out of rental
homes as the market values of real
estate keep rising.
All of this is true, but preventing
housing providers from raising rents
to keep up with also-rising costs of
doing business and properly maintain
the housing they provide is not going
to x the problem. It will only make
it worse, if thats possible.
I am a retired senior citizen who
owns a small apartment building that
I invested in during my working
years, the income from which enables
my continued retirement in San Mateo
County where I have lived all my life.
I keep my building well maintained,
up to code and rent at below-market
rates to attract a stable tenant population. At this point in time, however,
costs for operating my building are

increasing at an
alarming rate
costs I need to pass
on to renters if I am
going to keep my
building. Water
rates, energy costs,
garbage rates and
special district
property taxes have
all doubled within the last ve years.
Rent stabilization is just code for
rent control. Just cause eviction is
code for not being able to remove a
tenant who engages in illegal activities, does not follow the rules or causes harm to other tenants. If enacted,
both policies, advocated by Ms.
Cornell and her group, would make it
impossible for me to continue to provide relatively affordable housing for
my residents. Period.
So sell, you say? Get out of the
business, you say? Who, in their
right mind, would buy a rental building where costs could not be covered
by rents? So the value of my investment and my retirement savings
would be sacriced to support this
sector of society. Just my savings,
not yours and not theirs.
If, in fact, most people agree that
safe, affordable housing should be
accessible to all members of our society and I certainly do then the
solution to the problem is for the
whole society to share in the cost of
providing it. And thats called taxes.
If Ms. Cornell put a petition on the
ballot to raise everyones income and
sales taxes enough to nance con-

Guest
perspective
struction and operation of subsidized
government housing in the seven Bay
Area counties experiencing this crisis, I would be the rst one in line to
sign it and would help in the campaign to get it passed.
Until that happens, however, labeling individual neighbors and community members who are providing the
small supply of good-faith affordable
housing that still exists as greedy
landlords only achieves the opposite
of what Ms. Cornell and her supporters want because owners of small
properties, like myself, will seriously
consider selling their buildings right
now to avoid being seen as the bad
guys. Then, new owners will raise
current below-market rents to market
rate to pay for new mortgages and
lock in returns if rent control is
implemented or even threatened.
So Ms. Cornell, create and campaign for a housing and tax initiative
that will achieve your (and my) societal goals. Ill vote for it and so will
your supporters and so will anyone
who values maintaining our preciously diverse community.

Stay the course on ACA


The New York Times

he Affordable Care Act, which


has helped millions of people
get health care, is now fully
woven into the nations social fabric.
As President Obama said Tuesday, there
is something deeply cynical about
the ceaseless, endless, partisan
attempts to roll back the progress
already made.
His remarks at a forum of the
Catholic Health Association come
only weeks before the Supreme Court
is expected to issue a ruling that could,
if the administration loses, eliminate
federal tax subsidies in 34 states that
have made it possible for millions of
Americans to buy health insurance.
Mr. Obama was right when he said on
Monday that the court probably
shouldnt have even taken the case.
Unfortunately it did, and no one can
predict how the deeply divided court
will rule.
The administration claims to have
no contingency plan should the subsidies be invalidated. But some states,
fearing the worst, are beginning to
consider options, none of which look

easy to carry out.
The Affordable Care Act provides
subsidies in every state for lowincome people who earn too much to
qualify for Medicaid, the health program for the poor. Opponents of the
act have seized on careless wording in
the law to argue that subsidies should
be available only in states that have
established their own health insurance
exchanges but not in states that chose
to use HealthCare.gov, the federal governments exchange. That dees common sense and the understanding of all
those who passed the law in 2010.
There was never any question that the
ACA subsidies would be available on
exchanges in all the states.
There is an easy solution for the
problem. Congress could pass a onesentence law clarifying that subsidies
will be available on all the exchanges.
Thats what polls show Americans
want. But congressional Republicans
are not about to do anything realistic
to help millions of people keep their

health coverage, and are bent on


destroying the law that made coverage
possible.
As Mr. Obama noted, since he signed
the law in March 2010, more than 16
million uninsured Americans have
been covered, driving the uninsured
rate to the lowest level ever recorded.
Americans can no longer be denied
coverage because of pre-existing conditions. Health care prices and
employer premiums have been rising
at very low rates. There are no more
annual or lifetime limits on how much
insurers have to pay for care. And as
for the claim by Republicans that the
program is a job killer, the nation
has experienced 63 straight months of
private-sector job growth, starting the
month the act was passed.
It would be tragic at this point to
reverse course and put millions of
Americans at risk of disease and death
from inadequate heath care or potential
bankruptcy from inability to pay staggeringly high medical bills while disrupting insurance markets that depend
on large enrollments to stabilize
prices.

No necessity for new


government agency

n interesting recommendation from the San


Mateo County Civil Grand Jury last week is
that a single countywide organization should
be identified to plan, coordinate and apply for grants to
prepare for sea level rise.
Regardless of ones view on the possibility of sea
level rise, preparing for it, or any number of flooding
possibilities should not be seen as a negative, rather a
positive. Several cities on the Bayside are contending
with Federal Emergency Management Agency requirements for flood control in case of a 100-year flood and
there is already some coordination between multiple
cities when it comes to shared facilities like wastewater
treatment plants. However,
there is an already established organization that
would be perfectly suited for
such a task. It is the
City/County Association of
Governments. Commonly
known as C/CAG, it meets
regularly and is represented
by one elected official from
every city in the county and
the county. It discusses grant
funding and conducts studies
on various issues of importance to every city in the
county, i.e. Highway 101
ramp metering and airport
compatibility plans. Surely, such an organization could
absorb any amount of study on the impacts of large
amounts of water coming onto our shores.
Unless, of course, the goal is to create an organization with bond authority that could ask residents to
pony up money to pay for any improvements. Its not
clear, at least from the civil grand jury report, if that is
the intent. However, once the issue is explored, there
could be some level of further exploration into grant
funding and then, the exploration of whether bond funding is necessary. If it is, there could be the possibility
of creating a countywide assessment district that would
ask for bond funding to pay for needed improvements.
But there is absolutely no need for any new government
agency for this issue.
In this area, San Mateo County is unique in that it is a
collection of cities and a county government that has
control over the unincorporated areas and several key
departments such as health and human services and the
Sheriffs Office. However, the county government acts
more like a first among equals rather than an agency
with oversight authority of its cities. San Francisco is a
city/county structure with a strong mayor who acts as
the chief executive of the city and Board of Supervisors.
Santa Clara County has a Board of Supervisors with a
strong mayor in its largest city, San Jose. In Alameda
County, the board has a similar structure as San Mateo
County, but it has a strong mayor in its largest city,
Oakland. San Mateo County does not have a strong
mayor of any of its cities and its two largest cities, Daly
City and San Mateo, are of relatively similar size. In
San Mateo County cities, the mayor position is rotated
among councilmembers for either one year or two, with
the exception of San Bruno, which has a separately
elected mayor who is not the chief executive of the city.
The chief executive position for each San Mateo County
city is the city manager, who is appointed by the council. That leaves the San Mateo County Board of
Supervisors as the default leaders of the county, but its
purview is limited to its unincorporated areas and its
department heads, some of whom are elected. At times,
it does take the lead on ordinances, such as the plastic
bag rules, but its challenging for larger issues. There
was some discussion years ago of the county taking the
lead on fire department mergers, but the board took a
back seat and let the individual cities decide what was
best. The county is forming task forces on housing and
the minimum wage, but again, those are issues that it
can only control in unincorporated areas and see if individual cities want to follow its lead. Does this work OK?
Well, it is what it is and any changes to it would be
challenging, for sure, and with a very specific rationale
that we have yet to encounter.
Thats one of the primary reasons for the City/County
Association of Governments as a supplemental government structure to take on countywide issues. And thats
why it is the perfect agency to take up this issue of sea
level rise, its possible impacts, and what, if anything,
should be done about it.

EU launches antitrust investigation


into Amazon over e-books
LONDON The European Union has
launched an antitrust investigation into
online retailer Amazon over its distribution
of e-books, which have become increasingly
popular in recent years.
The European Commission said Thursday it
will investigate certain clauses in Amazons
contracts with publishers, including a requirement for publishers to inform the company
about arrangements it has with Amazon competitors.

fell 5 percent.
Investors have been watching economic news closely. The economy contracted in the first three months of this
year, but recent data, including a report
last week of a burst of hiring last
month, suggest things are picking up.
The retail report showed that
Americans ramped up their spending on
autos, building materials and clothing,
a sign that strong job growth is starting to boost sales at stores. Retail sales
climbed 1.2 percent in May, the
Commerce Department said.
James Abate, chief investment officer
at Centre Funds, said investors want the
economy to strengthen, but not so
much as to force interest rates up. Ultralow rates have helped send stocks higher in the past six years.
Abate said the retail report seemed to
strike the right balance.
Retail sales are showing some
strength, but not so much to get the
Federal Reserve to act in an aggressive
manner to raise rates, Abate said.
The rise in U.S. stocks followed a
climb overseas on hopes that Greece
was making progress in its talks with
creditors. The rally, which started in
Asia and spread to Europe, faded after
news that creditors had told Greek Prime
Minister Alexis Tsipras to tone down

Retail sales jump in May


as jobs boost spending
By Josh Boak
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Americans ramped up


their spending on autos, building materials
and clothing in May, a sign that strong job
growth is starting to boost retail sales.
Retail sales climbed a seasonally adjusted
1.2 percent in May, following a 0.2 percent
gain in April, the Commerce Department
said Thursday. Sales have risen 2.7 percent
over the past 12 months.
The upswing in shopping reflects greater
confidence in an economy still shaking off
the ravages of a recession that ended six

years ago. Employers have added more than


3 million jobs over the past year, but until
last month many workers appeared to be
saving as much of their paychecks as they
could.
Consumers upped their spending by more
than 2 percent last month at auto dealers and
building materials stores, evidence that
theyre making longer-term investments in
their daily commutes and homes.
The figures confirm the strength seen in
separate reports on autos and housing.
People bought cars and trucks last month at
an annual pace of 17.8 million, the fastest
rate since July 2005, according to industry
analyst Autodata Corp.

Oculus virtual-reality headset


to simulate touch and gestures
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Oculus is expanding


its virtual-reality headset to simulate the
sensation of touch and gesturing as part of
its quest to blur the lines between the fake
and genuine world.
The touch controllers unveiled Thursday
by Oculus founder Palmer Luckey are
designed to enable people to pick up guns,
throw Frisbees or carry out other actions
within the fantasy scenes they see through a
virtual reality headset called the Rift. The

controllers also will make it possible to


point, wave inside the video games being
played on the Rift, according to Luckey.
The half-moon shaped controllers, called
Oculus Touch, will be showcased along with
the Rift headset next week in Los Angeles at
the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, a
major video game conference.
We really think Oculus Touch is going to
surprise you, Luckey, 22, said. We think
they are going to deliver an entirely new set
of virtual reality experiences.

Warriors back in the saddle


By Tom Withers
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DAVID RICHARD/USA TODAY SPORTS

Andre Iguodala was just the spark the Warriors


needed in his Game 4 start by tying Steph
Curry for a team-high 22 points in a 103-82
win Thursday night in Cleveland.

CLEVELAND No panic, no playing


around. Just California cool.
The Golden State Warriors simply did what
they had to do, and now theyre going home
in the same shape as when they left tied in
the NBA Finals.
Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala scored
22 points apiece and the Warriors, showing
their depth and why they were the leagues
best team all season, squared the finals at 2-2
on Thursday night with a 103-82 victory
over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Game 5 is Sunday night at Oaklands rambunctious Oracle Arena, where the teams
split two overtime games last week.
Weve seen it all year, every team we go
up against, we use our strength in numbers,
said Iguodala, who made a surprise start. Not
only do we have a good first unit but weve
got a second unit that is coming at you with
the same type of speed, same type of high-IQ
basketball. Its hard to keep up with us.

Jonathan Engelmann leaves


legacy as a complete player

to worry about that, and now its possible the


Warriors will get to play two more games on
their home court if the series goes the distance. Game 6 is Tuesday night in Cleveland.
Building off a strong fourth quarter in Game
3 that gave them confidence, the Warriors
showed a sense of urgency from the outset
and took it to the Cavs. Iguodala, who played
so well coming off the bench in the first
three games, started and made coach Steve
Kerrs decision look brilliant.
Known for his defense, Iguodala made four
3-pointers, kept James in check and Curry,
the league MVP, made four 3s as well, including a deep dagger in the fourth.
Kerr credited Iguodala for making things
more difficult on James, who went 7 of 22
from the field.
I didnt think Andre guarded him any differently than he did the first three games,.
Kerr said. Its a different game. LeBrons
shots didnt go in. The same shots may go in
next game. Andre, he battles him. Hes

For all the offensive accolades Jonathan


Engelmann has garnered in his three-year
varsity baseball career at Burlingame, his
defensive prowess should not be overlooked.
He was pretty much everything,
Burlingame manager Shawn Scott. He set
the table for us. He drove runs in for us. He
made big plays in the outfield for us. He was
a big part of what we did every day. And
we know teams arent gong to run on him
because of his arm.
As a recent graduate from Burlingame,
Engelmann could very well be playing center field at the next level. Which level that
will be is yet to be determined, as he is currently deciding between a commitment to
play on scholarship at University of
Michigan or a jump to the professional
ranks after being drafted Wednesday by the
Minnesota Twins.
[Im] very excited, very ready,
Engelmann said. Its a blessing. God has
put me in a good position and I thank
him every day. There are definitely two
options I can choose. Its exciting.
Engelmann was a legitimate five-tool
threat on the field. In addition to capturing
the Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division
title with a .462 average, he broke the
Burlingame record with 36 stolen bases. He
also won the team triple crown with one
home run and 18 RBIs, and also paced the
team with 37 hits, 28 runs scored, a .583
on-base percentage and a .687 slugging
percentage.
However, it was Engelmanns sixth tool
as a prolific team leader that put him over
the top as the Daily Journal Baseball Player

Were going to try to keep it going.


LeBron James scored 20 points 21 under
his average in the series with 12 rebounds
and eight assists, but Clevelands megastar,
who played with a cut on his head sustained
in the first half, didnt score in the fourth
quarter and couldnt do enough for the undermanned Cavaliers.
Timofey Mozgov led Cleveland with 28
points and guard Matthew Dellavedova,
again battling leg cramps after a hospital
stay for dehydration, had 10. The Cavs shot
just 2 of 18 from the field in the fourth quarter, and got nothing from their bench as J.R.
Smith missed all eight 3-pointers and
Clevelands reserves scored seven points.
Missing All-Stars Kevin Love and Kyrie
Irving, the Cavs didnt have enough firepower and their legs were heavy after playing
three games in five days against the leagues
deepest team.
The Warriors were in a must-win situation
as none of the 32 teams who have fallen
behind 3-1 in the finals have come back to
win an NBA title. Golden State doesnt have

of the Year. It was that leadership that


helped Burlingame get hot through the
opening of the postseason and win PAL
Tournament championship.
He wants to win and he always wants to
help the younger guys, Scott said. It really surprised me how much he helped the
younger guys because he had so many
other things going on himself that he put
those things aside and helped the younger
guys get better.
Much of Engelmanns inspiration for
helping the younger Panthers acclimate to
the varsity level is his once being the new
guy in town. As a freshman, he started his
varsity career as a third baseman at Aragon.
Then as a sophomore transfer at

One needs only spend a few minutes talking the game of softball with Capuchino
catcher Allie Stines to know she has an
intense passion for the game.
Passion and drive. Those attributes, combined with uncanny talent, has turned
Stines into one of the best players not only
in San Mateo County, but arguably in all of
the Central Coast Section.
If there is something I want, I will go to
any expense to get it, Stines said. I want
it to be known by everybody my place
on this team. Im a really respectful person
and I think Im a good teammate. I put
everybody else rst and I expect the same
respect back.
Following a monster season, Stines was
named the Peninsula Athletic League Bay
Divisions co-Player of the Year along
with Hillsdales Lauren Quirke.
Stines will now add the Daily Journals
Softball Player of the Year award to her
resume as well.
Allie is really well respected in the
league, said Capuchino coach Todd
Grammatico. They all see what she does.
Shes always smiling. Shes probably my
favorite player (who Ive coached) of all
time. Thats the kind of kid she is.
It was hard not to notice Stines, who
helped lead a young Mustangs squad
through a tough schedule that saw them nish in a tie for fourth place in the Bay
Division at 7-7. Stines, Capuchinos leadoff hitter, was a tremendous table setter. She
batted a cool .510 to win the Bay Division
batting title, was rst in runs scored with
28, rst in slugging percentage at .822 and
rst in total extra-base hits with 18 (10 doubles, four triples and four homers). She was
second in home runs with four and second in

on-base percentage at .539. She was fth in


RBIs with 22. Her OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage) was an eye-popping
1.461.
She failed to get a hit in only four games
this season and had nine games of three hits
or more.
Ive been working really hard my entire
life to get where I am now, said Stines, who
recently completed her junior year. When I
was 6 years old, I wanted to be a varsity Cap
softball player. Im going to play for
[Grammatico]. Im going to get that cool
(lettermans) jacket.
But what really set Stines apart from the
rest was one number: Zero. As in, the number of times Stines struck out this season.

Former Serra great Tony Renda dealt to Yanks


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Tony Renda is back in pinstripes.


The 24-year-old infield prospect hasnt
dawned stripes since 2009 when he wrapped
up his prolific baseball career at Serra.
Thursday, however, the Washington
Nationals traded their No. 12 organizational prospect, according to Baseball America,
to the New York Yankees for right-hander
David Carpenter.
I feel good about it, Renda said. Its a
good opportunity. Its a good organization.
Renda had been playing for Nationals
Double-A affiliate Harrisburg, batting .263
while hitting his first home run since 2013.
He departs the Senators in the midst of quite
the tear, having hit safely in his last six
games, and tabbing multi-hit games in five
of his last nine games. He is batting .393
(11 for 28) for June.
Its been pretty good, Renda said of the

current season. Theres


been some ups and
downs, but Im swinging
the bat well now. I feel
good. Its just a new
chapter in my career. I
get to go over to the
Yankees and show them
what Ive got.
A second-round draft
Tony Renda
pick by the Nationals in
2012 out of Cal, Renda has played with several ex-teammates during his time in the
minors. In 2013 at Low-A Hagerstown, he
teamed with former Cal right-hander Dixon
Anderson. In spring training this season,
he was in camp with his former Serra teammate Matt Page.
In being dealt to the Yankees organization, Renda has been assigned to Double-A
Trenton, where he will rejoin another player who helped the Cinderella Cal team to
Omaha in 2011, outfielder Danny Oh.
Oh was a 27th round pick by the Yankees

in 2012. Entering into this season, Oh was


batting .254 through three minor league
seasons. This year, however, he posted a
remarkable month-and-a-half at High-A
Tampa, hitting .333, for which he was
recently named to the Florida State League
All-Star team. He has since been promoted
to Double-A Trenton.
Renda said he is not surprised Oh has
proved a valuable player in professional
baseball.
Danny is a good player, Renda said.
Hes always been a good player. Hopefully
we get to be teammates.
Renda will join a wealth of Yankees
prospects in Trenton. Former first-round draft
pick Aaron Judge was ranked the No. 52
prospect in baseball prior to this season,
according to Baseball America. The 6-7 righthanded slugger is currently tied for third in the
Eastern League with eight home runs.
Another former first-round draft pick,
Thunder third baseman Eric Jagielo, currently
ranks second in the league with nine homers.

Carpenter is a major league journeyman,


having broken into the big leagues with the
Astros in 2011. Following two quite successful seasons out of the Atlanta Braves
bullpen in 2013 and 14, he was traded to
the Yankees earlier this season along with
left-hander Chasen Shreve in exchange for
left-handed prospect Manny Banuelos.
Carpenter was 0-1 with a 4. 82 ERA
through 22 games out of the Yankees
bullpen before being designated for assignment last Wednesday.
The Trenton Thunder are currently in second place in the Eastern Leagues Eastern
Division. They beat the Erie Seawolves 6-0
Thursday, with four Thunder pitchers
including former Chicago White Sox closer
Sergio Santos, who signed a minor league
deal with the Yankees Wednesday combining on a one-hit shutout. The victory
moves them to with a half game of the firstplace New Britain Rock Cats.

Kazmir dominates in As shutout win Dusty Rhodes,


Athletics 7, Rangers 0
former wrestler,
dies at age of 69
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND Scott Kazmir was pleased


with his rst win in nearly two months
and with fastball.
Taking a much more selective approach
with his heater, Kazmir looked a lot like the
pitcher who won his rst two starts.
Kazmir allowed one hit in eight innings
to end a nine-start winless streak and lead
the Oakland Athletics over the Texas
Rangers 7-0 Thursday.
He didnt get too amped up early in the
game and try to force things, As manager
Bob Melvin said. He just kind of went with
the ow, spotted his fastball early on,
mixed in all his pitches and really kind of
revved it up as he went along.
Kazmir (3-4) retired 13 of his rst 14 batters around a second-inning walk by Adam
Rosales and didnt allow a hit until Elvis
Andrus one-out single to center in the fth.
Texas only other runner was Prince
Fielder, who walked leading off the seventh.
It felt like I was in control out there,
said Kazmir, who struck out six. When I
needed to hump up a little bit, I had it there
and was able to hit my spot with it. That was
the difference. Took a different approach,
and it worked.
Kazmir defeated Texas and Houston in his
rst two starts of the season but had been 04 in nine outings since beating the Astros
on April 13, although he had a 3.78 ERA in
that stretch.
Evan Scribner needed nine pitches in a
perfect ninth that completed the one-hitter.
Oakland shortstop Marcus Semien, who
leads the majors with 20 errors, snared a
liner up the middle from Leonys Martin to
end the second. Center elder Billy Burns
made a diving catch to rob Delino DeShields
of a potential extra-base hit in the sixth.
Burns also made a leaping one-handed
grab before crashing into the fence in center

on Carlos Corporans
deep y to end the eighth.
That was unbelievable, Kazmir said. That
right there, that gets you
going as a pitcher. When
someone makes a play
like that you just want to
go out there and return the
Scott Kazmir favor and get those guys
back into the dugout.
Chi Chi Gonzalez (2-1) gave up one run,
eight hits and three walks in seven innings.
He had entered with 14 2-3 scoreless
innings in the major leagues and was trying
to become the rst Texas pitcher to win his
rst three big league starts.
The more he does it, the more well
expect him to do it, Rangers manager Jeff
Banister said. Any time a rookie comes to
the bigs and does this type of stuff, you
dont expect three straight starts. We knew
he was a good pitcher. and we love what hes
done.
Ben Zobrist hit an RBI single in the rst.
The As broke open the game in a six-run
eighth that included a pair of two-run
homers, by Mark Canha off Jon Edwards and
Josh Reddick against Ross Detwiler.

WWE says Virgil Runnels, a former professional wrestler known by his fans as Dusty
Rhodes, has died. He was 69.
The company said Runnels died Thursday, but
a spokesman declined to say where or how he
passed away, saying the family had not authorized the release of that information.
Runnels, who also went
by the nickname The
American Dream, was a
member of the WWE Hall
of Fame, and held the NWA
championship three times.
He became famous during
the height of wrestlings
popularity in the 1970s
Dusty Rhodes and 1980s, appearing in
signature yellow polka dot
tights with his sidekick valet Sapphire.
In a statement, WWE offered condolences to
Runnels family, calling him a caring husband
and a creative visionary who helped shape the
landscape of WWE long after his in-ring career
had ended.
Runnels remained a fixture with WWE after
retiring from the ring and was working at
WWEs Performance Center in Orlando,
Florida.
Throughout his several decades in the ring,
the Austin, Texas, native endeared himself to
fans as an everyman with a less than stellar
physique, but a gregarious gift of gab behind a
microphone.
Runnels was also the father of two other
famous WWE wrestlers: Dustin Runnels, better
known as Goldust, and Cody Runnels, who
wrestles under the name Stardust.

Shin in front at Mets walk off against Romo, Giants


Womens PGA
championship
By Mike Fitzpatrick

Mets 5, Giants 4

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

By Melissa Murphy
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HARRISON, N.Y. South Korean Jenny


Shin shot a bogey-free, 7-under 66 Thursday
for a one-stroke lead after the opening round
at the KPMG Womens PGA Championship,
the second major of the season.
Canadian teenager Brooke Henderson had
a three-putt bogey on the
final hole (9) to drop a
shot back after Shin
birdied No. 18 at the
Westchester
Country
Club.
Shin had five birdies
and an eagle on the par-5
15th. The 17-year-old
Henderson, playing on a
Jenny Shin
sponsor
exemption,
eagled the par-5 12th.
Hall-of-Famer Karrie Webb birdied three of
the first four holes and finished at 68. The
40-year-old, who started on the back nine,
had a bogey-free round until she dropped a
shot on the seventh.
Americans Brittany Lincicome, Lexi
Thompson, Cristie Kerr and Stacy Lewis
were in a large group that finished four
strokes back at 70 in steamy weather with
temperatures that reached the mid-80s.
Lincicome, the winner of the first major at
the ANA Inspiration in April, eagled the par5 15th and followed with a birdie on 16.
Two-time defending champion Inbee Park
shot a 71. Top-ranked teenager Lydia Ko was
another stroke back, and Suzann Pettersen,
coming off a win in Canada, finished at 74.
Shin, who is seeking her first major, had
three birdies on the front nine and slowly
moved up the leaderboard and caught Webb,
a seven-time major winner.
Henderson, who turned pro in December,
is below the LPGA Tours age requirement of
18. So she got a sponsor exemption and
made the most of it.
Henderson birdied No. 10, her opening
hole, and added birdies at Nos. 3, 5, 6 and
15. For her eagle on the par-5, 274-yard
12th hole, she hit a 7-wood 204 yards and
the ball landed three feet from the cup.

NEW YORK Michael Cuddyer singled


home the winning run in the bottom of the
ninth inning, and the New York Mets beat
the San Francisco Giants 5-4 Thursday
night to prevent a three-game sweep.
Curtis Granderson scored twice and drove
in a run to help the Mets win on a 91-degree
night when chants of Lets go Giants!
rang out at Citi Field. New York beat the
defending World Series champions for only
the second time in the past 11 meetings,
rebounding from a pair of humbling losses
to start the series.
San Francisco rookie Chris Heston
pitched a no-hitter in the opener, and Mets
ace Matt Harvey was hit hard again the following night. So when New York finally
pulled this one out, no doubt it was a relief.
Sergio Romo (0-3) hit Granderson in the
back on an 0-2 pitch with one out in the
ninth. Granderson advanced to second on
Andrew Susacs passed ball and third on
Juan Lagares groundout before Lucas Duda
was intentionally walked.
Cuddyer, who had a go-ahead double in the
fifth, stroked a sharp single into center field
and raised his arm as he headed for first
base, just ahead of the swarm of teammates
that chased him down to celebrate.
Jeurys Familia (2-0) pitched a scoreless
inning for the win.
Jonathon Niese entered 0-4 with a 7.96
ERA in his last five starts but gave the Mets
a second consecutive encouraging outing.
The left-hander retired 12 in a row before
substitute third baseman Eric Campbell
committed a two-out error in the sixth.
Brandon Crawford followed with his ninth
homer, a long drive into the Giants bullpen
in right-center that gave San Francisco a 43 lead.
Niese, who went seven innings, has
yielded 11 unearned runs in 12 starts this
season. New York has made 13 errors with
Niese on the mound, most for any National
League team behind one pitcher.
Hunter Strickland gave up three straight
Mets hits to the start the seventh, including
a leadoff double by pinch-hitter Darrell
Ceciliani and Grandersons tying single.
Tim Lincecum held the Mets hitless until
Travis dArnaud blooped an RBI double with
two outs in the fourth. Niese opened the
fifth with a double to deep center and scored
on Dudas sacrifice fly. Cuddyer put the Mets
up 3-2 with a two-out RBI double.
Looking to win his seventh straight decision against New York, Lincecum was lifted
after 4 2/3 innings.
The first four batters reached safely

Maren Mjelde scored on a free kick in the
second half, giving 1995 champion
Norway a 1-1 tie against top-ranked
Germany at Ottawa, Ontario, on Thursday in
the Womens World Cup.
Anja Mittag put two-time champion
Germany ahead in the sixth minute with her
37th international goal, chipping past
Ingrid Hjelmseth after the goalkeeper failed
to control Dzsenifer Marozsans shot.
Mjelde curled in a free kick from just outside the penalty area in the 61st minute for
her 11th international goal.
Germany outshot Norway 27-4.
Both teams are 1-0-1 with four points,
and Germany leads Group B on goal difference.

With Cavs still hanging around, Curry hit
a step-back 3 on the left side that stopped
the Cavs cold and silenced a roaring crowd

his chest and yelled, Cmon!
The Warriors followed their leader and
now theyre headed home brimming with
confidence.
Draymond Green added 17 points and
Harrison Barnes had 14 for Golden State,

China beats Dutch 1-0 in injury time
EDMONTON, Alberta Wang Lisi scored in
the first minute of stoppage time to give China
a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands on Thursday
in the first round of the Womens World Cup.
Wang took a pass from midfield by Tan
Ruyin in the penalty area and was able to tap
the ball just inside the far post past Sari van
Veenenedaal, who was charging forward to
challenge the play.
The last-ditch win puts China openinggroup play record at 1-1-0 for three points. It
lost its opener to Canada on Saturday on a
penalty kick by Christine Sinclair in injury
time.
China dominated play, generating 26 shots,
10 on goal, compared to six shots, three on
goal, for the Netherlands.
China had the better of possession as well,
owning the ball 59 percent of play.
The Netherlands, which beat New Zealand in

its first-ever FIFA Womens World Cup match


last Saturday, fell to 1-1-0 for three points.

Thailand knocks off Ivory Coast


3-2 in Womens World Cup
Thanatta Chawong scored an insurance goal
in the 75th minute which proved the difference
and Thailand beat Ivory Coast 3-2 in their
Womens World Cup opening group game on
Thursday.
Ivory Coast opened the scoring just four minutes in. A corner kick pinballed in the 6-yard
box until Ange Nguessan was able to get her left
foot on it and beat Thailand goalkeeper
Waraporn Boonsing for a 1-0 lead.
In the 26th minute, Anootsara Maijarern took
a seemingly offside long feed on the left wing
and passed to Orathai Srimanee, who volleyed it
by goalkeeper Dominique Thaimale to even the

Srimanee made it 2-1 in first half stoppage
time, heading home a service from Rattikan

Canadas mark of 1-0-1 with four points has

New Zealand (0-1-1) still has never won a World

The game was delayed for about 30 minutes

any changes, but went with a lineup that
worked well late in Game 3, when the

Shortly before tip-off, Kerr told reporters
he was sticking with his usual first five.
I lied, he said. I dont think they hand
you the trophy based on morality. They
give it to you if you win. Sorry about that.
Kerr got the result he wanted, but only
after the Warriors withstood an early flurry
from the Cavs, who scored the games first
seven points.
We said, Hey lets throw a little wrinkle
in it and see how it works, Iguodala said.
It worked for us tonight.
Golden States ball movement was better,
the shots that didnt drop in the first three

Chicago, Tampa all even in Stanley Cup Final


By Greg Beacham

You have to give credit to both teams. Were good hockey clubs.
Were not going to let them play their game for 60 minutes. Theyre
not going to let us play our game for 60 minutes. Im not surprised.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TAMPA, Fla. Four games deep in the


Stanley Cup Final, all thats clear is just how little separates the Chicago Blackhawks and the
Tampa Bay Lightning.
These two conference champions have two
victories, nine goals and 24 penalty minutes
apiece, while Chicago has outshot Tampa Bay
107-104.
Neither team has led by more than one goal at
any point in the Finals first four games, which
have all been decided by one goal apiece for the
first time since 1968 and just the third time in
NHL history.
The Lightning stayed overnight in Chicago
after Wednesdays 2-1 loss before heading home
to prepare for Game 5 on Saturday night at
Amalie Arena.
They traveled with the knowledge they
missed early opportunities to get Chicago in
serious trouble in this series and they know
the fate of other opponents who failed to put the
Blackhawks away.
I think youre looking at two very equal
teams, for starters. Both teams have elite skill,
elite speed. What we lack in their Stanley Cup
experience and gold medals at the Olympics, we
make up for in our youthful enthusiasm and

shots in the first period of Game 4 and didnt let


up significantly in the final two periods, dominating the puck and forcing Chicago into one of
its worst performances in recent weeks. Yet the
Blackhawks got goals of pure persistence from
Jonathan Toews and Brandon Saad, while the
Lightning lamented numerous missed chances
to beat Corey Crawford.
That frustration has been epitomized by
Steven Stamkos, who twice came ever so close
to tying Game 4 in the final 90 seconds. The
Lightning captain still doesnt have a goal in
the series matching the total of Chicago star
Patrick Kane.
When you have teams of this caliber, its
bound to be a tight series, Stamkos said.
Were disappointed about the squandered
chance, (but) if youd have given us a best 2 out
of 3 at home at the beginning of the year to win
the Stanley Cup, I think any team in their right
mind would take that opportunity.
The series is so even because these teams
similarities have largely canceled each other

For either one of us to think were going to

second period last night, that they were in control of it, Bowness added. You have to give
credit to both teams. Were good hockey clubs.
Were not going to let them play their game for
60 minutes. Theyre not going to let us play our
game for 60 minutes. Im not surprised.
Tampa Bay defenseman Anton Stralman
noted the Lightning very well could have won
all four games.
The Blackhawks could accurately say the
same thing, but Game 4 still stings for the
Lightning, and they have an extra day off to
ponder it before their 25th game of a grinding
postseason.

out, from the flying forwards up front to the


uncertain goalie situations in back.
Its a game of bounces. You just try to work
hard and try to get those bounces and keep the
momentum, Saad said. But lucks definitely a
part of it. Its a tough trophy to win and a tough
series to be a part of.
The Lightning still have the impressive team
speed that seemed to be a key factor before this
series began, but Tampa Bay has recommitted to
the improved defensive game that allowed it to
get out of the Eastern Conference bracket in 20
grueling games. Neither of these speedy teams
is flying down the ice, instead focusing on
responsible hockey.
I think we got caught up thinking it would be
run-and-gun, Blackhawks forward Brad
Richards said. And if we do that, we just feed
them. Weve got to be more patient than them.
Goaltending also hasnt been a deciding factor in this series, even with ample reason to
think it might be.
The Lightning dont know yet whether Andrei
Vasilevskiy will get another start in net after the
20-year-old Russian rookie played Game 4 in
place of Ben Bishop, who has an undisclosed
injury. Vasilevskiy won Game 2 in relief, and he
played well Wednesday in his first playoff start,
giving Tampa Bay little reason to worry about
the potentially precarious position.

ENGELMANN
Continued from page 11
Burlingame, the San Mateo native who didnt know anyone on the team was just another lump of underclassman clay yet to be
molded.
(He was) just a big-bodied kid that worked
hard, Scott said.
After batting .273 in his inaugural season
with the Panthers, Engelmann locked in
with his power swing as a junior. A private
student of Joc Pedersons father Stu along
with Menlo-Atherton slugger Matthew
McGarry Engelmanns middle-away
approach garnered a breakout season last
year in which he hit .412 to earn All-PAL
Bay Division first-team honors.
By his senior season, Engelmann was firing on all cylinders. Then, with his bat
already garnering plenty of attention from
professional scouts, Engelmanns running

STINES

In 102 plate appearances, she was not beat
once by a two-strike pitch.
In fact, Stines is working on 55 straight
games in which she has not struck out. In
her three-year varsity career, Stines has
struck out 13 times all during her freshman season.
I think striking out is just wasting an atbat, Stines said. I just love being on base
and hitting the ball really hard.
Said Grammatico: Thats almost unfathomable. Everybody strikes out. Allie doesnt. She take a lot of pride in that. She takes
a lot of pride in her entire game.
Stines said it was her father, Dave Stines,
who in her instilled her approach at the
plate since she was 6 years old.
He would tell me to go straight through

game took off. The running Panthers of


2015 can be traced back to a challenge
dropped by Scott before the season opener.
With a stable of speedsters including leadoff
hitter Griffin Intrieri, Scott spurred his
dugout to compete with one another for the
team lead in steals.
It was a little challenge, Engelmann
said. Shawn had mentioned at the beginning of the year we should race for the
stolen-base title.
The strategy paid off, as Engelmann and
Intrieri became the first tandem in
Burlingame history to swipe 30 bases
apiece. Engelmann led the squad with 36 to
finish his Burlingame career with a total of
65 steals. Intrieri stole 30 bases, tabbing
his 30th in the Panthers 3-1 win over St.
Ignatius in the opening round of the Central
Coast Section Division II playoffs.
Engelmann was un-paralleled at the plate
though. He ran away with the PAL Bay
Division batting crown. The runner-up to
his .462 mark was Sacred Heart Prep junior
Andrew Daschbach with a .443 batting aver-

age. Not that the numbers were the be-all,


end-all to Engelmann.
Its something where I knew I was getting
success at the plate, Engelmann said. Im
not really a stat watcher. For myself,
baseball is a game where if you do everything right, you can go 0-for-3 or 0-for-4.
So its all about hitting the ball hard.
In the field, Engelmann always seems to
take the approach of going hitless at the
plate. It took some imagination on his part,
being as he hit safely in 24 of 29 games this
season. But his philosophy of covering
ground in the outfield is taken from something Engelmann once heard the Twins Gold
Glove center fielder Torii Hunter say in an
interview.
Torii Hunter once said, If Im not hitting
it, nobody is hitting it, Engelmann said.
Now the possibility of Engelmann joining the Twins organization is a tangible
possibility. He was drafted by Minnesota in
the 28th round Wednesday.
Its really awesome, Engelmann said. I
couldnt be more blessed to be in this posi-

tion. Its a dream come true to be recognized


by a professional baseball team. A select few
are lucky enough to be selected in the Major
League draft and I was fortunate enough to be
one of them.
Whether the next stop of his baseball
career is in Minnesota or Michigan, the
acclimating process is old hat to
Engelmann.
Born
in
Lancaster,
Pennsylvania, he then lived in New York as
a child until his family relocated to San
Mateo, where he started played for his first
organized tee-ball team.
That isnt his earliest baseball memory
though. That came during a vacation in
Kauai, Hawaii where his family has a summer home where he remembers swinging
a Wiffle ball bat in the backyard.
At Burlingame though, he will be remembered as one of the all-time greats.
The memories I ve made at Burlingame
High School will stay with me the rest of my
life, Engelmann said. The friendships, the
memories they never leave you.

straight, Stines said. I found out whenever I was too confused (at the plate), it would
just mess up my hitting completely. I then
go back to a simple mindset.
More than that, Grammatico said Stines
just has innate ability to put the bat on the
ball. Toes to nose is a common refrain in
baseball and softball when a batter has the
knack for putting the ball in play regardless
of a pitchs location. Whenever
Grammatico would get on Stines for swinging at a bad pitch which often resulted in
a hit he would look at her dad, who would
simply shake his head at Grammaticos lack
of faith. Grammatico said Dave Stines would
tell him she does it all the time.
Whats weird about Allie is, she is a really good bad-ball hitter, Grammatico said.
Shell hit something at her feet and hit a
line drive.
Adding to her incredible offensive numbers is the fact she is doing it while playing
out of position. An outelder for her Nor Cal
Blitz travel-ball team, Stines took over the

catching chores midway through her freshman season and hasnt relinquished the
spot.
My freshman year, it was really tough. I
was learning how to catch, Stines said. I
had some prior experience. I wouldnt
consider myself a catcher, but I really enjoy
it during [the high school season].
Even with a chance to return to the outeld, Stines passed. Grammatico said he
told her at the end of her freshman year that
he knew of a catcher coming into the program and he would move her back into the
outeld.
Stines said no. Since then, she developed
into one of the best backstops in the PAL.
She has had to work at it. Shes had to
work on her framing. Her blocking,
Grammatico said. For someone who has
caught out of need, shes really developed
into one of the best catchers in the league.
For all her drive, determination and numbers, Stines does not put on airs.
Grammatico said what makes Stines so spe-

cial is she attacks the rest of the game and


her role as leader as aggressively as she
attacks a pitch. During the Relay for Life
cancer charity even at Capuchino in May,
Stines organized a fundraising softball
scrimmage with rival Mills. The game ended
up raising $2,600\.
That was all Allie, Grammatico said.
Allie organized the whole thing.
On the eld, Stines is just as dedicated.
She is the prototypical captain,
Grammatico said. First one there, last one
to leave. She puts the gear away. She really
encourages her teammates.
We would never lose if we had nine of
her.
Stines admitted toward the end of the season she thought about the strikeout streak.
She said she wont worry about it as much
next year. Instead, she will focus on trying
to drive the ball more.
I just want to be better than last year,
Stines said.
A scary proposition for PAL opponents.

Jazz great Ornette Coleman remembered as visionary


By Charles J. Gans
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Whatever rules in jazz


hadnt been shattered by Charlie Parker and
other bebop artists, Ornette Coleman finished off for good.
Coleman, who died Thursday at age 85,
brought to jazz the kind of open-ended,
non-narrative approach that Jackson
Pollock used in painting and James Joyce

Ornette
Coleman

in books. In the late


1950s, he originated
free jazz, challenging
the bebop establishment by abandoning the
conventional song form
and liberating musicians
to freely improvise off
of the melody rather
than the underlying
chord
changes.

Coleman also broke down the barrier


between leader and sidemen, giving his
band members freedom to solo, interact
and develop their ideas.
Though largely self-taught, Coleman
would create his own harmolodic concept of music, which also became a life
philosophy. The music derived from a
uniquely free interaction between the musicians, without being tethered to rigid metric or harmonic structure.

I want everyone to have an equal relationship to the results, Coleman told The

dont tell them what or how to play. ...
Sometimes the drum is leading, sometimes
the bass is leading. ... I dont think Im the
leader, Im just paying the bills.
Once so revolutionary he drove some listeners to physical abuse, he became a

Whole Foods: New chain to be


named for 365 store brand
By Candice Choi
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Whole Foods says it


will name its new chain of smaller
stores with lower prices after its 365
Everyday Value house brand.
Co-CEO Walter Robb tells the
Associated Press that the chain will be
named 365 by Whole Foods Market,
a nod to the brand already sold by the
grocery chain.
He said that while 365 products will
anchor the stores, the chain will also
have other items, including national
brands.
Since announcing plans for the
chain in May, recent trademark filings
by Whole Foods Markets Inc. had
prompted a guessing game that the
stores might bear names like Clever
Egg, DailyShop, Greenlife, Small

Expires 6/30/15

Batch or Swiftgoods.
Those were all decoys, Robb said
in an interview, before quickly adding
that his claim could also be a decoy to
divert people about other plans.
The new chain, which is slated to
begin opening next year, comes as
Whole Foods seeks to differentiate
itself amid intensifying competition.
The company, which has more than
400 Whole Foods stores, has seen its
sales growth slow as organic and natural products have become more widely
available at mainstream supermarket
chains and big-box retailers.
The new chain may also be inspired
by the success of companies such as
Trader Joes and Sprouts, which also
focus on value and store-brand products, said Jon Springer, retail editor
for the trade publication Supermarket
News.
Theyve identified millennial

shoppers, younger shoppers who are


very particular about what they eat,
but also tough about what they can
spend on food, he said.
Executives in the supermarket and
retail industry are also trying to adapt
to the changing ways people are shopping. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. , for
instance,
has
been
opening
Neighborhood Market stores that
are smaller than its supercenters aimed
at shoppers who want to get in and out
quickly.
A similar philosophy seems to be
behind the plan by Whole Foods. In
its initial announcement, Whole
Foods had said that the new chain
would be geared toward millennials.
But Robb said that while 365 is
inspired by younger generations, its
intended to appeal to anyone who
wants a quick, convenient way to
shop.

Whole Foods says it plans to open between five and 10 of the


365 stores around the country next year, and that it sees
potential for the chain to eventually have as big a footprint as
its namesake chain. The company has provided few other
concrete details about its plans for the chain.Jeff Turnas,a Whole
Foods veteran who was named president of the 365 chain, said
he envisions people stopping in at 365 stores during the week
when they want to get in and out of stores, with the regular
Whole Foods stores being for bigger shopping trips.

FIFA-financed film nets only


$900 in limited U.S. release
By Jake Coye
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

From left, Praveen Ramesh (Colonel Pickering), Samantha Williams (Eliza Doolittle) and Scott Solomon (Henry Higgins) star
in My Fair Lady.

Music makes My Fair Lady memorable


By Judy Richter
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

My Fair Lady boasts more than its


fair share of memorable music thanks to
the team of composer Frederick Loewe
and lyricist-book writer Alan Jay
Lerner. The 1956 Broadway hit musical
is based on George Bernard Shaws
Pygmalion and starred Rex Harrison
as an English professor of phonetics
and Julie Andrews as the Cockney flower
girl who takes speech lessons from him
in order to become a lady.
Broadway By the Bays production
features Scott Solomon as the professor,
Henry Higgins, and Samantha Williams
as the flower girl, Eliza Doolittle.
The differing success of their performances reflects the overall quality of this
production, directed by Ken Savage.
Williams has both the vocal and acting prowess to undertake the challenges
of transforming from a hardscrabble but
proud flower seller to an elegant, wellspoken woman.
With her refined vocal technique, she

delivers fine renditions of such songs as


Wouldnt It be Loverly? The Rain in
Spain and I Could Have Danced All
Night. Solomon got off to a shaky
start opening night with Why Cant
the English? and never quite commanded the stage as the domineering, inconsiderate Higgins.
Supporting characters come off better, especially Praveen Ramesh as
Colonel Pickering, Higgins colleague;
Kristina Hudelson as Mrs. Pearce,
Higgins housekeeper; and Karen
DeHart at Mrs. Higgins, Henrys mother, who bewails his lack of manners.
The vocal standout among supporting
characters is Sergey Khalikulov as
Freddy Eynsford-Hill, whos charmed by
Eliza. His On the Street Where You
Live is a show-stopper.
Gary Stanford Jr. plays Elizas drunken, opportunistic father, Alfred P.
Doolittle, but hes too blustery, especially in With a Little Bit of Luck and
Get Me to the Church on Time. Hes a
good dancer, though.

seems under-rehearsed and sometimes

The set by Annie Dauber is intended to
be a crystal palace which doubles as a
rigid glass cage, according to director
Savages notes. The glass ceiling of
this musical bars women and minorities
from fully becoming equally respected
members of British society, he says.
Hence it seems appropriate that Eliza,
traditionally played by white women, is
played by Williams, a black woman.
Running nearly three hours, opening
night seemed slow with a low energy
level. Still, the memorable music and
plot show why My Fair Lady has
endured over the years.

NEW YORK The FIFA-financed movie United


Passions made only about $900 over the weekend, according to a person who has seen box-office data from the 10
theaters the film played in and was granted anonymity
because he wasnt authorized to release the figures.
Made for about $30 million and largely bankrolled by
FIFA to trumpet the soccer federations 111-year history,
United Passions had no expectations of drawing crowds.
But the minuscule result still was a striking repudiation of a
high-priced FIFA puff piece starring Tim Roth as FIFA
President Sepp Blatter, who announced last week that he
will resign.
United Passions initially was released in a handful of
European markets last summer, timed to the 2014 World
Cup. Screen Media, which declined to report the films
weekend grosses, acquired it for U.S. distribution, focusing
on a video-on-demand and digital release. It paid low sixfigures for the rights.
The films U.S. release was planned months before a
Justice Department investigation alleged rampant corruption throughout FIFA and indicted 14 FIFA officials and soccer marketing executives. The movie, which also stars
Gerard Depardieu as World Cup creator Jules Rimet and Sam
Neill as former FIFA president Joao Havelange, gives a generally rosy view of the scandal-plagued FIFA. Critics have
slammed it as corporate propaganda.
In an interview last week, Suzanne Blench, president of
Screen Media, acknowledged liberties are taken in the
films telling of FIFA history, and said she was distributing
the film to simply give people a chance to take a look at
it.
United Passions already was a huge write down for
FIFA. After premiering last year at the Cannes Film
Festival, it found theatrical release in only Russia, Portugal
and Serbia. According to box-office data firm Rentrak, it
made $178,639 theatrically before opening in the U.S.,
most of that in Russia.

proxy of lineage (her dad is Ron Howard),
has been around the biggest names in the
business for her entire life, and dislikes the
overused and undervalued phrase movie
star. She prefers terms like recognizable and well-known and believes that
there have only been maybe 15 true movie
stars in the history of cinema.
Pratt, however, makes the cut.
A few years ago, things looked very different for Pratt. He had a steady gig as the
affable Andy Dwyer on NBCs Parks and
Recreation and would pop up in movies
here and there, but usually as a goofy sidekick. Then everything changed in 2014.

With leading roles in both The Lego


Movie and the little-known, high-stakes
Marvel property Guardians of the
Galaxy, the year was almost a test. Could
he carry a film? Would audiences respond?
The answer was an unequivocal yes.
Guardians became the third highest earning movie of the year, and The Lego
Movie was the fifth. Both are getting
sequels.
Now, Pratt has another trial looming:
Jurassic World, the fourth installment in
the Jurassic Park series that Steven
Spielberg launched in 1993, out Friday.
Pratt plays Owen Grady, a military man
turned Velociraptor trainer at an amusement
park that devolves into dino chaos. If his
Guardians character, Peter Quill, was Han
Solo, Owen Grady is Indiana Jones a little more serious, a little less rakish and
definitely not silly.
As he delves into higher profile projects, Pratt is only concerned about making movies that dont just aim for the
middle. He wants audiences to truly feel
l i k e p ro fi t s aren t t h e s o l e, o r mo s t
important, objective. Also, even in these
leading roles, he doesnt give himself

credit for a films success.


Fame and stardom can be ephemeral, too,
and Pratt likes to keep things light and
sincere. He recently posted a humorous
apology on his Facebook page for
whatever it is I end up saying during the
forthcoming Jurassic World press tour.
He was keenly aware of the various gates
and scandals mined out of recent
Avengers interviews and others.
It was a fun way for me to poke fun at the
PC police, but also, truly to pre-emptively
apologize in the likelihood that I would
say something inappropriate, he said.
He also stole his Owen costume from set,
telling Howard that hed like to wear it to
hospitals to visit kids in character.
There are the usual downsides of
increased fame, but Pratt, whos married to
actress Anna Faris, knew the score going
in.
I dont much like the elements that pertain to my private life and my personal
space being diminished, but with that
theres a trade. Im now on a short list to
have access to amazing filmmakers and
material, he said. Im just hoping I never
get caught complaining about it.

teens and no shade to speak of. For better or


worse, Jurassic World has done a very
good job of recreating the theme park experience.
The feat of bringing dinosaurs back from
extinction is no longer enough of a draw for
the park, an obvious parallel to the pressure
on Trevorrow to amplify entertainment and
maintain franchise profit. New species of
dinosaurs have been genetically created to
satisfy the masses streaming through the
gates. Some even get outfitted with electronic headsets, bringing us ever closer to
the cinema of Dr. Evil: sharks with frickin
laser beams attached to their heads.
Bigger, louder, more teeth is the demand
of the parks corporate overlords, which
includes the serene CEO Simon Masrani
(Irrfan Khan). But the real face of the new
Jurassic World is operations manager Claire
Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), a business
suit-clad executive who calls the dinosaurs

assets and describes the park in terms of


revenue, not awe.
When her two nephews, a brooding
teenager named Zach (Nick Robinson) and
his younger, more excited brother Gray (Ty
Simpkins) arrive for a visit, Claire still
spends most of her time in the NASA-like
control room or hosting potential sponsors.
The only one who seems to understand the
dinosaurs is Chris Pratts Owen Grady, a
kind of Velociraptor Whisperer. Hes trained
a foursome of Raptors, each sporting their
own nickname, by clicking sounds. He
shouts commands (Stand down, Blue!)
that would sound more fitting for an overfriendly Russell Terrier than a resurrected
Raptor.
When the dinosaurs intelligence is again
underestimated, chaos returns to the park,
courtesy of a wily, ferocious hybrid of mysterious genetic makeup called the
Indominus Rex. Hes part T-Rex, part frog
and all business when it comes to the
chompy-chompy none of that tenderness
of the Tyrannosaurus. Hes a focus grouptested product for maximum appeal
again, just like Jurassic World.
The corporate commentary in the screenplay, by Trevorrow, Rick Jaff, Amanda

Silver and Derek Connolly, comes across as


heavy handed partly because its not
smoothed by humor. If the modern blockbuster could use anything, its a rework by a
few talented comedy writers. As a control
room techie, Jake Johnson lands the only
real laugh.
The 3-D Jurassic World is also an ugly,
over-saturated movie; CGI has run amok
here as much as dinosaurs. After nods to
John Williams classic original, Michael
Giacchinos unremarkable new score punctuates the action, as the characters gradually
come together from locations across the
park. Vincent dOnofrios opportunistic
military contractor is also lurking.
Pratt, the Harrison Ford heir apparent,
slides perfectly into the film. But its
Howard who makes the biggest impact as a
corporate cog whose controlled world is
imploding. Its not a subtle portrait she
keeps her heels throughout but her transformation is the most convincing one in a
film full of dubious evolutions.
Jurassic World, a Universal Pictures
release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion
Picture Association of America for intense
sequences of science-fiction violence and
peril. Running time: 124 minutes. Two
stars out of four.

Stansberry said hes long had a positive relationship with the OToole
Centers landlord, Trans World
Assurance Company but, due to its
redevelopment plans, Project 90 needs
an alternate building.
The property, which used to be a
convalescent home, has unique amenities and finding a substitute will be
challenging.
Everybody knows the cost of residences in San Mateo County is skyrocketing. So then it becomes a question of can you find a facility that fits,
and then what would you need economically to be able to sustain it?
Stansberry said.
While many may find it undesirable
to have a substance abuse treatment
center move into their neighborhood,
Stansberry said Project 90 has had a
positive reputation and its inherently

23

community. These services are desperately needed and fewer and fewer services of this kind are available. It would
be a huge loss to San Mateo and the
Peninsula at large if [Project 90] were
to cease to exist, Flecker wrote in an
email.

Continued from page 1


sites owner will be constructing a new
office building and large apartment
complex.
While finding another building that
provides both housing and office
space will undoubtedly be a challenge
in a county with rising rents, Project
90s
Executive
Director
Jim
Stansberry said hes also struggling to
secure funding as many believed the
Affordable Care Act would provide support.
In addition, demand is being exacerbated due to new laws like Californias
Proposition 47 that reduced some drugrelated crimes to misdemeanors
landing many with addiction problems
back on the street or in environments
where theyre exposed to triggers that
could lead them back into using.
With numerous challenges ahead,
some are fearful the organization that
provides life-saving resources to the
county will soon be overlooked.
I dont know what I would have
done or what would have happened if I
didnt go to Project 90. I just cant say
enough about the program. It saved my
life, said Mike Devlin, a San Mateo
resident who graduated from the program in 1994. Where are these people
going to go that need treatment in San
Mateo County? Youre going to see
them at the hospital, youre going to
see them in jail. To lose a critical
resource like this would be crazy.

Friday June 12, 2015

Downsizing while
awaiting the ACA

safer to keep those who are struggling


off the street.
About four years ago, Project 90 was
able to provide nearly 100 beds spread
between several properties for those
coming out of detox or in need of transitional housing. With its budget cut
to around $1.5 million, less than half
of what it was a few years ago, Project
90 can only afford about 38 beds and
consistently has a long waitlist.

Timing is critical
The loss of resources is an extreme
detriment to those seeking services
and who need a place to break their
cycle. Just this year, a man who finished detox was waiting for a bed to
open up at Project 90. The few weeks
delay eventually ended as the man died
after not being able to get into a program, Stansberry said.
If it was any other disease and people were not getting treated, people
would be questioning it, Stansberry
said. I know the county is looking at
[funding options], but they dont realize the clock is ticking.
Devlin agreed timing is critical, particularly for those who may be looking at homelessness or are susceptible
to relapsing after going through
detox.
I didnt trust myself after I left
[detox]. Timing is everything, said
Devlin, who has held a steady job in
pest control and continues to attend
weekly Project 90 alumni meetings.
Ensuring those who need help
receive it contributes to society and
Project 90s unfortunate downsizing
over the years is concerning, said
Suzanne Flecker, a resident of the nearby Hayward Park neighborhood and
the wife of San Mateo Councilman
Rick Bonilla.
I feel strongly that the services that
[Project 90] provides to San Mateo citizens enable individuals to heal and
become productive members in our

Officials from Project 90 and Our


Common Ground, another rehabilitation center with several sites throughout the county, are worried the ACA is
having unintended consequences.
Health professionals are hopeful
those who need assistance will obtain
Medicaid or Medi-Cal insurance that
for the first time, would cover substance abuse treatment costs. Instead,
the state is still awaiting a waiver that
would allow providers like Project 90
to receive reimbursements based on a
regions cost of doing business and
provide more than 16 beds.
Stansberry said its difficult to proceed when the nonprofits finances are
in jeopardy.
The Affordable Care Act is still kind
of in limbo as to what theyre going to
do for residential programs. So its
like trying to make a commitment
when you dont know what the rules are
or what the compensation is going to
be, Stansberry said. Its left us to a
point where were going to have to
downsize.
Project 90 supporters are hopeful the
county, cities and residents will recognize the value of providing resources
to those in need and accept that while
they may not share the plight of an
addict, theyre still important members of the community.
I go to alumni meetings every
[week] and Ive never seen [attendance]
this low in 20 years. Its scary and its
not because theres less alcoholics and
addicts out there; its that less people
can get in to the program, Devlin
said. It would be such a loss to the
community if it went away. Where do
these people go? Shouldnt we be
responsible for each other? Theres
new buildings constructed everywhere
and rents are going up. I would just
love to be able to see Project 90 survive.

information about rehabilitation serv ices and Project 90.

share with kids, its a unique shared experience and who doesnt like butterflies? said
Noah, owner of Butterfly Adventures.
Youre able to play in this environment
thats kind of stress free in a world thats relatively full of stress.
After traveling the globe to study butterfly exhibits, Noah and his wife began their
business about five years ago aiming to educate visitors about the creatures and how
people can help.
We really want them to be able to develop their own little butterfly lay stations at
their homes. So they can plant something,
especially in an area like this thats so
important for butterflies. Even if its a
hanging nectar bowl outside their door, so
that the butterflies can come through and
nectar and make it through a very difficult
urban area, Noah said. If we can do that,
then well have more butterflies and more
butterflies is better.

ing principals between schools or shuttering an existing campus.
The drastic measures had been identified
previously by the board as a means to help
close a gaping deficit that had plagued the
district for years, and was expected to continue, until the board made roughly $2.5
million in cuts in April and the state indicated there was more money available for
schools.
As the financial projections for the district begin to appear more rosy in the immediate future, the board is prepared to take
severe reductions of education services off

the San Mateo County Event Center, lucky


visitors may even witness the creatures
phenomenal transformation as they emerge
into the world for the first time as butterflies.
For 22-year-old Elizabeth Bass, the
exhibit provided an opportunity to overcome her childhood fear of butterflies and
watch a monarch emerge from its chrysalis.
Being able to be in here is just fascinating and its such a cool experience. You
dont get to do this very often, Bass said.
Its fun to see how they interact with different people. Especially when you have the
little kids that are just going oh my god!
Whats going on? Its fun to watch peoples
reaction and its been really fun to just
walk around and experience and interact
with little tiny adorable creatures.
From parents toting an infant to elderly
couples, dozens of fairgoers ventured into
the makeshift humid habitat with a Q-tip
dipped in nectar to try and attract hundreds
of butterflies fluttering through the air.
Hannah Ingram, a 15-year-old Menlo Park
resident, and her mother gathered around a
hanging plant as they picked up and photographed monarch butterflies.
You get to feed the butterflies yourself,

Ingram said as she repeated what shed


learned about a monarchs life cycle. This
is special for me.
Stephanie Young and Russell Sembrano
ventured to San Mateo for the first time
from San Francisco to visit the fair and feed
Noahs creatures.
Its pretty interesting. Really humid and
hot, but its nice that you actually get to be
close to the butterflies, Young said with a
huge smile.
Having never wanted to work at the fair
before, Butterfly Adventures also attracted
San Mateo resident Liz Hutnick to help run
the exhibit.
Hutnick and Noah said one of the most
impressive aspects of the butterflies are
their ability to loosen even the most hesitant visitors often men who are initially
tugged in by their spouse or children.
People are just entranced that they land
on them. Even big burly men will come in
and they dont want any butterflies on them,
but then they find them on their shoulder
and theyre really entranced by it and want
their picture taken, Hutnick said.
Noah said he travels to about six or seven
fairs a year where he FedExs the creatures
from his home in Washington state.

Visitors get a quick lesson on how to interact, feed and avoid stepping on the wild
creatures before entering into butterfly
wonderland.
Exiting the exhibit can be a little tricky
as the sometimes-inconspicuous butterflies
frequently land on a visitor without their
knowledge. A quick body check helps attendees from leaving without any hitchhiking
butterflies, Noah said.
The exotic exhibit truly leaves a mark on
visitors who have a chance to walk on the
wild side in the midst of the week-long fair.
You should see the smiles on their faces
when theyre holding the butterflies, its
just incredible and the cutest pictures.
People are taking some great shots, those
are going to last forever. All ages enjoy it
from kids, to teenagers even, and older
folks, Hutnick said. Its just magical.

the table, and instead look to accommodate


its workers who had long been hungry for a
pay raise.
During the meeting Wednesday, the board
also held a public discussion on the proposal to offer teachers a 2 percent compensation hike in the coming year, as well as
additional money allocated to the district
from the state through the Local Control
Funding Formula.
The influx of money from the state to the
district could inflate the raise for educators
to as much as 8 percent, according to a tentative agreement reached earlier between the
district and representatives from the teachers union.
Officials are also prepared to give its classified staff a pay raise too, under a tentative
agreement reached between the union and
the district.

But due to the inconsistent nature of the


state funding, which depends on annual fluctuations of the economy, San Bruno officials stressed the value of responsible
financial planning.
Its been a real challenge for the district
for the last 10 years, and it will continue to
be, said McGinn.
Some members of the school community
are still hopeful the district will be able to
establish its own unique source of funding
which would make it less susceptible to
shifts in the state revenue model, which is
largely dependent on tax revenue.
District parent Wendy Al-Mukdad encouraged the board to remain focused on the
opportunity to pursue a parcel tax, which
would give the district an irrevocable sustained source of sustainable income and
enhance its budget flexibility.

Amidst the most dire period of budget


decisions, the board received a presentation
from a polling firm which presented details
on how to rally support for a potential tax
measure, but some members of the school
community said the district would face
opposition from residents who would likely
be reluctant to vote in favor of a revenue
source to support a district that was cutting
staff and services, and showed a history of
financial mismanagement.
Trustee Henry Sanchez said since the district is at the mercy of the state budget, officials still need to be vigilant to ensure the
limited resources are spent in a responsible
fashion, even though the financial outlook
is more optimistic than it has been.
Weve stepped away from the precipice
this year ... but we need to be very efficient
economically, he said.
