PG&E blast foundation examines next steps


Board to develop spending strategy for $70M in restitution money
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The San Bruno Community


Foundation will begin to gauge
the cost of building a library or
community center and similar
projects that residents have
expressed interest in developing
with the nearly $70 million in
gas pipeline restitution funds

granted by PG&E.
Identifying costs of such projects was one of a variety of next
steps recommended by Executive
Director Leslie Hatamiya during
the
foundation
Board of
Directors meeting Monday, June
29, as the community outreach
campaign culminated. That outreach allowed residents to suggest uses for the fund formed

after the 2010 catastrophe.


More than 1,000 San Bruno residents voiced their opinion on
potential uses for the $68.75 million which was set aside for the
long-term benefit of the city. The
opinions were collected through a
series of town hall meetings,
online surveys and polling inter-

VMware pays $75.5M for whistleblower claim


Local tech giant settles False Claims Act case, one of largest in history
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

One of the worlds largest software companies has agreed to pay $75.5 million to
settle a whistleblower retaliation lawsuit
alleging Palo Alto-headquartered VMware
defrauded the government through an illegal
pricing scheme.
VMware, a market leader in cloud-based
virtualization technology, was sued by the
U.S. Department of Justice and its former
sales executive Dane Smith, who was represented by the Burlingame-based firm
Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy.
The settlement is the result of a nearly
five-year investigation unsealed Tuesday
and represents one of the largest False
Claims Act resolutions against a tech company in history, said Niall McCarthy.
In the 2011 suit, Smith alleges he was
unfairly terminated and even feared for his
life after raising concerns to his superiors
that the company was violating federal law
by charging the government more than its
commercial clients.
McCarthy hailed the settlement against
one of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties
largest employers as a win for Bay Area tech
workers and taxpayers.
The overarching issue here is Silicon
Valley is driven more by money than by
innovation. So as a result, companies in
Silicon Valley who have contracts with the
government routinely overcharge the government. This case, to me, is paving the
way for other whistleblowers in tech companies to come forward and expose fraud,
McCarthy said.

Paid sick leave, lead ammo,


cellphones affected by new laws
SACRAMENTO More than six million
workers are expected to benefit from a new
law that requires California employers to
provide them with at least three paid sick
days each year.
The measure that passed last year as
AB1522 applies to most employees who
work 30 or more days in a year. They will
earn a minimum of one hour of paid sick
leave for every 30 hours they work.
Paid sick leave is among several new laws
taking effect Wednesday with the start of the
states new fiscal year.
California also continues to phase in a
ban on lead ammunition by barring it for
hunting in certain areas. And cellphones
manufactured and sold starting in July must
have a kill switch to make them less

The lucrative government contacts with
the U.S. General Services Administration
and U.S. Department of Defense, earned
VMware nearly $142 million in three years
alone, according to the suit. However, the
actual amount in question is somewhere
between $50 million and $100 million,
McCarthy said.
VMware reported $6 billion in revenue
last year and employs nearly 18,000 people
across the globe, according to its website.
The settlement was not an admission of
guilt and VMware fully cooperated with the
U.S. Department of Justices investigation
covering its practices between 2006 and
2013, a VMware spokesman wrote in an
email.
VMware believes that its commercial
sales practice disclosures to the GSA were
accurate and denies that it violated the False
Claims Act. The company nevertheless
elected to settle this lawsuit rather than
engage in protracted litigation with one of
its important customers the federal government, the spokesman wrote.
Based on the False Claims Act, VMware
should have disclosed its inconsistent pricing to the government so as to ensure taxpayers receive the best available savings,
according to the suit.
VMware paid the settlement Tuesday and
Smith is entitled to between 15 percent and
25 percent of the award. The exact amount

Bill to revive restrictions


on sex offender housing stalls
SACRAMENTO A bill seeking to
revive broad restrictions on where sex
offenders can live in California has stalled
in a state Senate committee.
Republican Sen. Sharon Runner of
Lancaster introduced SB54 after the state
Supreme Court ruled that prohibiting all sex
offenders from living within 2,000 feet of
schools or parks goes too far.
State parole officers now impose the
restriction only on pedophiles and others
whose sex crimes involved children.
Runner co-authored the ban as part of what
became known as Jessicas law, approved

Smith will receive has yet to be negotiated


and the remainder will go to the federal government, McCarthy said.
A resident of Southern California, Smith
has since changed careers. After alerting his
superiors of what he perceived to be illegal
company practices, Smith began to fear for
his safety and even told his wife where he
had hidden evidence and what to do with it if
something were to happen to him while
on a business trip, McCarthy said.
Carahsoft Technology Corporation, a distributor and alleged subsidiary of VMware,
is also named in the lawsuit that claims the
secondary company was intentionally created to protect the Palo Alto firm from liability.
Citing a slew of emails from top executives and even an internal survey asking
employees whether they believed there was
misconduct, the lawsuit alleges the firm
intentionally defrauded the government.
When companies handle taxpayer
money, there is a sacred trust and for companies who violate that trust, [they] will only
be held accountable if there are people like
Dane Smith coming forward, McCarthy
said. Without people like Dane Smith who
have the courage and intestinal fortitude to
come forward, massive amounts of money
are kept from taxpayers. Taxpayers are
ripped off to the hundreds of millions of dollars each year, and the only reason recovery
is made of those monies, are whistleblowers
like Dane Smith.

Brown signs school


vaccine legislation
By Julia Horowitz
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO Gov. Jerry


Brown wasted no time Tuesday in
signing a contentious California
bill to impose one of the strictest
school vaccination laws in the
country following an outbreak of
measles at Disneyland late last
year.
Brown, a Democrat, issued a
signing statement just one day after
lawmakers sent him the bill to
strike Californias personal belief
exemption for immunizations, a
move that requires nearly all public
schoolchildren to be vaccinated.
The bill takes effect next year.
The science is clear that vaccines dramatically protect children
against a number of infectious and
dangerous diseases, Brown wrote.
While its true that no medical
intervention is without risk, the
evidence shows that immunization
powerfully benefits and protects
the community.
California joins Mississippi and
West Virginia as the only states

with such strict


requirements.
De m o c r a t i c
Sens. Richard
Pan
of
Sacramento and
Ben Allen of
Santa Monica
introduced the
Jerry Brown measure after
the outbreak at
the theme park in December infected over 100 people in the U.S. and
Mexico.
The bill likely would be successful in increasing immunization
rates and stopping the spread of disease, pediatric doctors said Monday
after the state Senate sent the legislation to the governor.
Bill supporters, including doctors, hospital representatives and
health advocates, celebrated at an

Girl smacks would-be burglar with Swiffer


By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

A 16-year-old girl used a Swiffer


Sweeper to fend off three would-be
burglars who tried to break into her
familys Foster City home, according to the San Mateo County
District Attorneys Office.
The girl was home alone with her
12-year-old brother on Matsonia
Drive when she heard banging on
the front door and the doorbell ringing before 10 a.m., Wednesday,
June 24.

The children looked through the


peephole and saw one of the defendants before running upstairs to
hide in a closet. The children then
called their father who quickly
called police, according to the
District Attorneys Office.
When they heard glass breaking
downstairs, the girl grabbed a
Swiffer Sweeper and went to confront the 20-year-old man and juvenile boy who allegedly broke into
her home.
She came face to face with the
juvenile, who was wearing gloves

and holding a hammer, and struck


him with the Swiffer, according to
prosecutors.
A neighbor heard the daughter
screaming and saw the boy and second suspect then flee to a waiting
car where the third defendant was
behind the wheel, according to
prosecutors.
Police intercepted them a short
while later on East Hillsdale
Boulevard and arrested all three.
The teen struck by the Swiffer
turned out to a 16-year-old boy who
had recently escaped from juvenile

Camp Glenwood near La Honda,


according to prosecutors.
Arrested were Manuel Vargas,
Alipeti Manu, both 20-year-old
East Bay residents, and the juvenile.They are being charged with
burglary, conspiracy and possession of burglary tools, according to
Foster City police.
Manuel and Vargas both pleaded
not guilty in court Friday and
remain in custody on $50,000 bail.
The juvenile accomplice was
taken to juvenile hall and a burglary charge has been filed against him

through juvenile court, according


to prosecutors. The adult defendants
are due back in court July 9 for a preliminary hearing.
Police urge residents to immediately report any suspicious people
in the neighborhood or someone
who knocks on their door and asks
for someone who doesnt live
there. Residents are encouraged to
always respond to knocks on their
front door, to let potential burglars
know they are home and to lock
doors and windows when not at
home.

Protesters call for a ban on fracking and a phasing out of oil development in California.

Environmentalists want Brown


to put end to offshore fracking
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES Environmentalists


Tuesday called on California Gov. Jerry
Brown to halt plans for months of hydraulic
fracturing in the waters off Southern
California, warning that it could lead to
chemical pollution or an oil spill.
State regulators this month approved nine
permits for operator Thums Long Beach Co.
for so-called fracking operations between
August and December in Long Beach Harbor.
Hydraulic fracturing is used to extract oil
or natural gas from rock formations by
injecting high-pressure mixtures of water,
sand or gravel and chemicals. The Center for
Biological Diversity said the permits open
the way for the first offshore fracking in the
state since 2013.
Gov. Brown has to recognize that halting offshore fracking is critical to protect-

rescued after giving birth in forest
OROVILLE Authorities rescued a
woman and her newborn baby after her family says she gave birth in a remote national
forest in Northern California.
U. S. Forest Service spokesman Chris
French said Tuesday that a helicopter pilot
responding to a brush fire Saturday first
spotted a mother and an infant. Rescue
workers on the ground whisked the pair to

ing marine animals and coastal communities from this toxic technique, center attorney Kristen Monsell said in a statement.
Havent we seen enough dead wildlife and
polluted beaches? she added, referring to a
crude oil pipeline break near Santa Barbara
in May that blackened the coast and spread
goo on beaches as far as 100 miles away.
Browns administration did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Hydraulic fracturing has spurred an ongoing energy boom but raised widespread concerns that it might lead to groundwater contamination, increased air pollution and even
earthquakes.
A recent report by the Environmental
Protection Agency found that hydraulic fracturing has not caused widespread harm to
drinking water in the United States, but
warned of potential contamination of water
supplies if safeguards are not maintained.

French said the cause of the fire is under

I cannot confirm the day of birth beyond
that she reported to us she had been there for
three days, French said. Also, her statement to us was that she gave birth at her
vehicle within the forest. We did not witness

San Mateo police are warning residents to


be diligent in locking their vehicles, even
in the warm weather, as there was a string of
car burglaries from unlocked cars this past
weekend.
From Saturday night to early Sunday
morning, police report that at least nine
vehicles had items stolen from inside in the
San Mateo Village neighborhood. Three of
the vehicles were reported to be locked but
there was no sign of forced entry to any of
them. Most of the items taken were either
coins from the center console or small items
from the glove box, according to police.
Nearby and just after the San Mateo
Village thefts, an alert resident on the 500
block of 29th Avenue reported a stranger
inside the vehicle of a resident of the block.
Police located Siaosi Henisolo Pahulu, 24,
of San Mateo, hiding and quickly linked him
to three thefts from unlocked vehicles in the
area, according to police.
Police are following up to determine if the
thefts in the San Mateo Village are related to
this same suspect. In addition, investigators are looking at neighborhood video to
see if there are any additional investigative
leads.

Two years after spying flap,
U.S., Brazil seek to turn the page

Republican presidential candidate and former Florida governor Jeb Bush gestures as he speaks
at a town hall meeting in Henderson, Nev.

Jeb Bushs tax returns: Big


income, big taxes since 81
By Ronnie Greene and Steve Peoples
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Republican presidential


candidate Jeb Bush has earned nearly $28
million since leaving the Florida governors mansion and paid an effective federal
income tax rate of roughly 36 percent in the
past three decades, according to tax returns
released by his campaign on Tuesday.
In an effort designed to show a commitment to transparency, Bush posted the tax
returns on a website that outlines his work
history since 1981, including most of the
time that has passed since the two-term
Florida governor left office in 2007. In
those recent years, Bush has served on
numerous corporate boards and has seen his
income rise sharply.
Today, Im releasing 33 years of tax
returns more than any presidential candidate in history, Bush wrote on the website.
From 2007 to 2013, Bush reported roughly $27.7 million in total income. His primary occupation during that time was as a
consultant, although he also made nearly
$10 million giving speeches from 2007
through the end of last year.
Bush earned nearly $7.4 million in total
income in 2013, the year covered by the
most recent tax return released.
Bushs federal tax rate puts him in the top
1 percent of taxpayers, who paid an average
of 30.2 percent between 1981 and 2011,

according to figures from the Congressional


Budget Office. The average for middleincome households in that time was 16.6
percent.
Bushs disclosure sets him apart from
other candidates, past and present, on multiple fronts.
No other candidate has released as many
returns. The closest was Bob Dole, the 1996
Republican nominee, who released 29 years
of his income tax returns. In 2004,
Democratic nominee John Kerry disclosed
20 years of such records.
Bushs tax returns also show he paid a
much higher federal tax rate on average than
that paid by the GOPs 2012 nominee, Mitt
Romney, over roughly the same time. The
filings reveal that Bush has not aggressively used shelters, deductions or deferred
instruments to lower his tax rate as many
high earners, Romney among them, often
do.
Romney was hammered by critics for
refusing to release more than two years of
his tax returns, which showed he paid an
average tax rate of 14 percent.
Bush is also the first of the nearly two
dozen major candidates for president in
2016 to release tax returns. But Ron Weiser,
a former finance chairman at the Republican
National Committee, said Bushs actions are
aimed not at his competition for the GOP
nomination but at Democratic front-runner
Hillary Rodham Clinton.

WASHINGTON Two years after revelations about U.S. spying frayed ties between
their countries, President Barack Obama and
visiting Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff
publicly closed that chapter Tuesday, declaring that the relationship between the U.S.
and Brazil is on an upward swing.
Rousseff canceled a 2013 visit to
Washington in the wake of National Security
Agency leaker Edward Snowdens disclosures
that the U.S. had intercepted her emails and
phone calls, and U.S. leaders have been
working to repair the damage ever since. On
Tuesday, the two leaders were all smiles in the
East Room of the White House, trading bets
about the 2016 Summer Olympics, to be held
in Rio de Janeiro.
I believe President Obama, Rousseff
said, referring to the U.S. pledge to no longer
engage in intrusive spying on friendly
nations.
I trust her completely, Obama rejoined.
Both leaders acknowledged that the NSA
leaks had strained the relationship between
two of the hemispheres largest powers. Even
still, Rousseff said the conditions today are
different than they were in 2013, noting that
Obama has since told her that should he ever

need confidential information about Brazil,
hell pick up the phone and call her directly.
Countries do go through crises and difficulties. Its just natural, Rousseff said
through a translator.

Dont blink or you might


miss the leap second on Tuesday
Tuesday lasts a wee bit longer by a second.
International timekeepers are tacking a
second to the clock to compensate for a
slightly slower Earth rotation.
While a leap second is hardly enough time
to change daily life, it has been known to
affect some computer systems in the past.
There have been calls to abandon the practice of periodically adding an extra second,
which has kept computers synchronized with
the Earth day since 1972. The last time was in
2012.
A decision by a United Nations agency that
deals with telecommunications issues isnt
expected until later this year at the earliest.
For now, Tuesdays leap second means
clocks will move from 23:59:59 to the odd
reading of 23:59:60 before it hits midnight,
universal time. Thats 8 p.m. EDT.

CALTRAIN
Continued from page 1
increase the ratio of bike capacity and
may do away with onboard restrooms
as it seeks to make room for riders of
all modes.
The new cars are a vital component
of the Caltrain Modernization
Program, a more than $1.5 billion
project aimed at accounting for projected ridership growth, reducing
greenhouse gas emissions as well as
sharing 51 miles of tracks between
San Jose and San Francisco with
high-speed rail.
Yet bike-toting passengers who are
frequently bumped from their scheduled trains due to a lack of space argue
the design specifications are inadequate as the new trains dont significantly increase room for bicyclists.
Theres not enough bike capacity
today, said Shirley Johnson, a volunteer with the San Francisco Bicycle
Coalition and leader of its Bikes
Onboard project. The increase in
bike boardings is three times higher
than the increase in walk-on boardings. So by 2020, ridership projections show 20 percent will bring a
bike on board. But that will only happen if Caltrain increases bike space
on board.
Caltrain will consider instructing
manufacturers to maintain a 1-to-9
ratio of bikes to traditional passengers a slight increase from the
trains current 1-to-10 ratio but the
same percentage after it puts its newly
purchased used-diesel cars online in
the coming years.
The new electrified trains are anticipated to replace about 75 percent of
the current diesel fleet when electrification goes into effect around 2020.
While Caltrain would like to accommodate as many bicyclists as possible, it must consider the most efficient way to increase capacity across
the board, said Caltrain spokeswoman
Jayme Ackemann, who noted each
bicyclist takes up two seats.
We know were already effectively
at capacity today at our peak commute. With congestion on [Highway]

LOCAL/WORLD
101 only projected to increase, we
expect more demand for our services.
So were really trying to figure out
how can we allocate the space on
board these vehicles to ensure we get
the greatest number of people on
board, Ackemann said.
To maximize space, Caltrain is considering removing on-board restrooms, which require the space of at
least eight seats, Ackemann said.
Regardless of the 1-to-9 ratio
remaining as is, increasing ridership
capacity across the board will mean
space for more bicyclists, who currently make up about 13 percent of
Caltrains customers, Ackemann said.
With each bicyclist taking the space
of two seats but only paying for one
ticket, Ackemann said Caltrain must
consider all riders as it works within
its limited budget.
Johnson argues providing more
space for bicyclists is not only better
for the environment as they dont
drive to the station, its better for the
economy as theyre not using taxpayer subsidized Caltrain shuttles
which can run $6 per person per trip
or buses.
The bicyclist does not use publicly
subsidized transportation at either
end of their trip. So the bicyclist on
the train can actually be more cost
effective than someone who drives or
takes the bus on both ends of their
trip, Johnson said.
Caltrain has approximately $700
million currently budgeted to replace
a portion of its diesel fleet with electric trains and ultimately, the design
of the trains may change over the
next few decades. For now, Caltrain
needs to at least have minimum
requirements so it can begin the
process of selecting and receiving
input from potential manufacturers,
Ackemann said.
This is a guiding principle for
today, because you have to create a
target, Ackemann said. We have
routinely created additional space for
bikes on board the trains when we
have identified the opportunity, the
equipment and the need to do so. So
this is by no means is the final word
of how much bike space will be on the
train.
Ackemann noted how it dedicated a

portion of its recently purchased


refurbished Bombardier cars to bicyclists, which will allow for up to three
bike cars on several trains. Currently,
most trains have at least two bike cars
with the older Gallery trains able to
transport up to 80 bicyclists and the
newer Bombardier trains carrying 48.
By voting on a set bike-to-seatedpassenger ratio and opting to remove
the restrooms, Johnson said the
Caltrain Board of Directors is making
a decision that will stick with the
transit agency for decades to come.
Johnson noted removing the restrooms to which many are already
accustomed, particularly rowdy
Giants fans who are allowed to drink
alcohol on the train, would be a disservice to users.
Although Caltrain doesnt have
plans to improve or add restrooms at
its stations, Bay Area Rapid Transit
does not have restrooms on its trains
or stations either, Ackemann said.
Johnson said many are grateful for
the service Caltrain provides, particularly as people look for ways to avoid
traffic and improve the environment.
But with transit-oriented developments continuing throughout the rail
corridor, Johnson said Caltrain is at
risk of becoming unreliable and more
people will turn to their cars.
Bicyclists are frustrated because
theyre trying to do the right thing
for the environment and the right
thing for the economy and the right
thing for the themselves because
theyre getting exercise when they
commute. But when they get denied
boarding by being bumped off the
train, theyre frustrated, Johnson
said. We really do appreciate the system, because its such a wonderful
service, but its frustrating when it
doesnt work.
The Caltrain Board of Directors will
v ote on issuing its request for proposals for the design of the electric trains
at its meeting beginning 10 a. m.
Thursday, July 2, at its headquarters,
1250 San Carlos Av e., San Carlos.

Pope to meet with homeless,
prisoners and immigrants in U.S.
VATICAN CITY Pope Francis will meet with homeless
people, immigrants and prisoners during his upcoming trip
to Cuba and the United States and become
the first pope to address the U. S.
Congress. Hell also preside over a meeting about religious liberty a major
issue for U.S. bishops in the wake of the
Supreme Courts gay marriage decision.
The Vatican published the itinerary
Tuesday for the eagerly awaited Sept. 1928 visit.
Francis added the Cuba leg onto the
Pope Francis
start of his U.S. trip after helping contribute to the historic thaw in U.S.-Cuba relations.
In Cuba, hell celebrate Mass in Revolution Square in
Havana as both of his immediate predecessors did during
their trips to the Caribbean island nation. Hell travel to
Holguin and pray before the Virgin of Charity of Cobre, the
patron of Cuba, and meet with Cuban families in the eastern
city of Santiago.
Francis arrives in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 22 and the
next day will be welcomed at the White House by President
Barack Obama.
He will address Congress on Sept. 24, and will meet with
homeless people later in the day at a local parish, St.
Patricks.
On Sept. 25, Francis will speak on sustainable development at the United Nations, where hell have another
opportunity to voice his concerns about the environment.

Iran nuclear talks extended;


Iranians meet key obligation
VIENNA Pushing past a Tuesday deadline, world powers and Iran extended negotiations for a comprehensive
nuclear agreement by a week as the U.N. nuclear agency prepared to announce Tehran had met a key condition significantly reducing its stocks of enriched uranium that could
be used for atomic weapons.
Irans failure to comply would have severely undermined
the negotiations, which are aimed at curbing the Iranians
nuclear program for a decade in exchange for tens of billions of dollars in relief from international economic sanctions
The State Department announced the extra days of talks
only hours before the expiration of the target date for their
completion. Thoughts of meeting the deadline had been
long-abandoned, but the extension has added significance
as it holds in place nuclear restrictions that Iran agreed to
some 20 months ago as well as slightly eased conditions
for Iranian business with the world.
Those preliminary measures have been prolonged to next
Tuesday to allow more time for negotiations to reach a
long-term solution, spokeswoman Marie Harf said.? The
statement came after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry held
a day of meetings in Vienna with the foreign ministers of
Iran and Russia, and other key officials.

U.S., Cuba to announce plan to open embassies


WASHINGTON President Barack Obama will announce
Wednesday that the U.S. and Cuba have finalized an agreement to reopen embassies in each others capitals, a major
step in ending hostilities between the Cold War foes, a senior administration official said.
The U.S. and Cuba have been negotiating the reestablishment of embassies following the historic December
announcement that they would move to restore ties after a
half-century of animosity. The U.S. embassy in Havana is
expected to open in July.
For Obama, ending the U.S. freeze with Cuba is central to
his foreign policy legacy as he nears the end of his presidency. Obama has long touted the value of direct engagement with global foes and has argued that the U.S. embargo
on the communist island just 90 miles south of Florida was
ineffective.
The official insisted on anonymity because the official
was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter ahead
of the president.
The White House said Obama will deliver a statement on
Cuba from the Rose Garden on Wednesday morning.
Secretary of State John Kerry, who is in Vienna for nuclear
negotiations with Iran, is also expected to speak about the
embassy openings.

Tipping point toward true progress

he 14th Amendment to the


U.S. Constitution states: No
state can take away or restrict
any right, privilege or protection of
citizens of the United States. It is
that phrase that guarantees due
process and equal protection under the
law, and could be considered one of
our more important amendments in
that it claries the phrase in the preamble that states the Constitution
was written to secure the blessings of
liberty to ourselves. Liberty cannot
be for some and not for all, and that
was the premise of the U.S. Supreme
Courts decision announced Friday
that essentially stated that all states
must recognize same-sex marriage.
The case that led to the landmark decision was Obergefell v. Hodges, rooted
in a same-sex couple married in one
state, who sought the same protection
in Ohio. The Supreme Court decision
claried that marriage is a fundamental right guaranteed by the 14th
Amendment.
The decision was not an unanimous

Editorial
one, in fact dissenting justices pointed to the governments intervention
in deciding what is an interpretation
of the traditional understanding of
marriage and is imposing a different
understanding on the entire nation.
Point taken, and understood.
However, the inherent right for all to
enjoy the same liberties and have
equal access and protection won out.
As it should have.
No legislation will stop committed
and loving relationships from taking
place regardless of sexual orientation,
that is the fact of the matter. The decision merely codies the rights and
equal protection that so many had
sought for so long. Though a tremendous amount of progress took place in
the last 15 years, the quest for equal
marriage rights has been a long and
storied one from open discrimination to the Stonewall Riots in 1969
and the marked progress of today.

It is hard to believe it has been just


over a decade since then-San
Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom
directed the city clerk to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in
2004. Since then, same-sex marriage
has been through the works in the
court system and through the electorate. The militarys dont ask,
dont tell was repealed and the federal
government decided it would no
longer defend the Defense of Marriage
Act, passed nearly 20 years ago.
Equal marriage rights will always
have opponents and we respect their
ideology and rationale for their
stance, however, times and attitudes
change and there will be a time in
which our collective society looks
back and asks, so what exactly was
the big deal?
Our nation has been reaching a tipping point in which disapproval of
same-sex relationships can no longer
be legally defended regardless of ones
own moral stance. On Friday, that tipping point moved toward justice, liberty and equality for all.

Letters to the editor


Realtors respond
Editor,
I appreciate the passion with
which Ms. Cynthia Cornell recently
(May 29, 2015) wrote about rent
control. Passion, however, does not
relieve one of the obligations to be
accurate. Ms. Cornell stated that:
The San Mateo County Association
of Realtors frighten landlords by
telling them their property values
will plummet if they dont increase
rents like everyone else. This is
simply false.
While Ms. Cornell would have
been correct to say that many economists and academic studies have
chronicled the harms of rent control
including stunted property values,
exacerbated shortages of available
units and increased deferred maintenance issues, the San Mateo County
Association of Realtors has
nevermade the statement she attributes to us above.
First, as our name indicates we
represent Realtors not landlords.
Second, as a not-for-profit, we are
not in the business of telling anyone how they should run their business: this includes suggestions on
rent.
SAMCAR has a long history of
supporting quality affordable housing on the Peninsula. We oppose
rent control because it is counter-

productive to that longstanding


objective. Ms. Cornells efforts to
enact rent control if successful
could actually harm the populations
she purportedly wishes to assist.
San Francisco, for example, has
had rent control in effect for 36
years and it is the supposed model
for other jurisdictions. However, as
of February 2015, the median rent
for a one-bedroom apartment in San
Francisco was $2,987. Various published reports place our countys
average rent for a comparable space
at roughly half of that. How, then,
has rent control helped provide
affordable housing solutions?

with barbecues of all sizes and types

Finally, some of the tents came
down and we found a place to sit and

dumped where they had stood so we

My question is:Why are barbecues
and tents and shelters allowed? Why
cant people just come with a blanket or lawn chair and a cold picnic
basket?Arent those tent stakes and
hot coals damaging our park?
Our Fourth of July celebration is a

The true patriot?


P

atriotism is your conviction that this country


is superior to all other countries because you
were born in it. George Bernard Shaw.
It seems like in spite of the drought and the great chance
of serious grass res, most communities in the Bay Area are
still planning to celebrate Independence Day by having
their usual reworks displays. Unless theyre going to
shoot them up from a boat in the middle of the Bay, it seems
like a foolish decision in this time of severe water shortage.
Are they doing this
because of tradition? Maybe
its because theyve already
hired the company that provides the reworks. Is it the
excitement that comes from
watching the colorful explosions? Is it an expression of
patriotism?
With this in mind, I want
to ask, What is a real patriot? Who comes to mind that
would qualify for the title? I
made a list from which you
can choose just whom you
think would ll the bill.
1). Someone who stands
on the curb waving the ag while the Independence Day
parade goes by?
2). Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffet who have set
up The Giving Pledge to encourage the wealthy to contribute to charities that help those in need?
3). A person who always votes along with their party, no
matter what?
4). A congressman or congresswoman who votes along
with the most convincing lobbyist and/or the value of
political contributions?
5). Those who are adamantly against higher taxes because
some of the money might go to the undeserving?
6). Fans who enthusiastically sing The Star Spangled
Banner at the ball game?
7). The president who stood on an aircraft carrier proudly
proclaiming, Mission Accomplished after he had authorized the slaughter of thousands of innocent people in Iraq?
8). The person who believes free enterprise must be preserved at all costs?
9). The voter who studies the issues carefully and always
casts her ballot?
10). Someone who takes our freedoms and the
Constitution seriously and tries to do what he can to make
things better?
11). The billionaire narcissist who has no serious political qualications who again joined the mass of Republicans
vying for the 2016 presidential nomination?
12). The person who ies the American ag in front of his
house 365 days a year?
Was it easy to spot the true patriots? Or did you nd that
there are a lot of questions that you need answered before
deciding? Have you, like most of us, never given the concept serious thought?
So, really, what is patriotism anyway? Merriam Webster
informs us that a patriot is one who loves his country and
zealously supports its authority and interests. Patriotism
Devotion to the welfare of ones country. (Omits many
politicians!) On the Web I found, A patriot is one who
loves, supports and is prepared to serve their country.
Questions arise. Who decides what authority and interests
are worth zealously supporting? What does being devoted mean? Does it mean obedience and compliance, even
though it may go against what we feel is best? Doesnt the
Web version sound like mindlessness?
It would feel great to be able to be proud of my country. I
would like to think that this nation stands for something
positive and glorious, but its hard to drum up much enthusiasm when you consider that there are so few people (especially politicians) who are dedicated to doing what is best
for this country. Far too many are out for their own interests, grandiosely and narcissistically grabbing all they can
get for themselves.
It would be great to be able to think about Congress and
get that good feeling that goes with honesty, forthrightness
and compassion. It would be nice if all werent inuenced
and manipulated by powerful special interests. Id give my
eyetooth to be able to look at the ag and think that it hasnt been tarnished and smudged by self-centered, insincere
and opportunistic politicians. I would love to believe that
our system has led us into a life-creating and sustaining
society instead of basically one that compromises life in so
many ways.
Americans and their leaders seem to need to prove that
they, alone in a weary world, are unique. They proclaim,
romanticize and grow lyrical over their countrys great
power and wealth and possessions and in the process make
it appear that Americans are different because of these assets
and because they assert their love of country so loudly.
Haynes Johnson, Sleepwalking Through History.
Maybe we need to stop romanticizing and growing lyrical and work on solving the problems that seem to accumulating so rapidly. Wouldnt that be more like true patriotism?

NEW YORK The U.S. stock market stabilized on Tuesday as investors


followed the latest developments in
the Greek debt saga.
Stocks edged higher a day after the
market had its worst day of the year.
That slump was prompted by a breakdown in talks between Greece and its
creditors. Greeces European bailout
program ends Tuesday at midnight,
and the country hasnt yet managed to
agree on an extension or a new deal
with creditors.
On Tuesday, the office of the Greek
Prime Minister said that the country
remains at the negotiating table, and
that the government has proposed a
two-year deal with Europes bailout
fund. The eurozones top official,
Jeroen Dijsselbloem, said that said
there was no point in continuing the
current program since the Greek government had rejected all of the creditors proposals. A request for a new
European aid program would be considered later.
The Greek government has also
called a referendum for Sunday, asking
Greeks to vote on whether the nation
should accept the deal offered by its
creditors. Investors are concerned
that if Greece defaults on its debts the

nation will eventually drop out of the


euro currency, a move that could
potentially set off turmoil in financial markets.
Even though the standoff in Greece
is far removed from the U. S. , the
global nature of financial markets
will ensure that any ripple effects
will be felt across the Atlantic, said
Mike Ryan, chief investment strategist at UBS Wealth Management
Americas.
There are obvious concerns that
failure to reach some kind of an agreement could put Greece on a path to a
eurozone exit, Ryan said. If there is
going to be volatility in global markets, it will be reflected in U.S. markets as well.
The Standard & Poors 500 index
rose 5.47 points, or 0.3 percent, to
2,063.11 The index closed out the
quarter with a loss of 0.2 percent, its
first quarterly decline since dropping
1 percent in the last three months of
2012.
The Dow Jones industrial average
climbed 23.16 points, or 0.1 percent,
to 17,619.51. The Nasdaq composite
rose 28.40 points, or 0.6 percent, to
4,986.87.
Despite Mondays slump, many
investors remain confident U. S.
financial markets will hold their own.
Whatever happens here, even if

Greeces bailout expires, country defaults


on International Monetary Fund payment
By Elena Becatoros
and Derek Gatopoulos
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ATHENS, Greece Greece slipped


deeper into its financial abyss after the
bailout program it has relied on for
five years expired at midnight Tuesday
and the country failed to repay a loan
due to the International Monetary
Fund, deepening fears over whether it
will be able to remain in the eurozone.
With its failure to repay the roughly
1.6 billion euros ($1.8 billion) to the
IMF, Greece became the first developed
country to fall into arrears on payments to the fund. The last country to
do so was Zimbabwe in 2001.
After Greece made a last-ditch effort

to extend its bailout, eurozone finance


ministers decided in a teleconference
late Tuesday night that there was no
way they could reach a deal before the
deadline.
It would be crazy to extend the program, said Dutch Finance Minister
Jeroen Dijsselbloem, who heads the
eurozone finance ministers body
known as the eurogroup. So that cannot happen and will not happen.
The program expires tonight,
Dijsselbloem said.
The brinkmanship that has characterized Greeces bailout negotiations
with its European creditors and the
IMF rose several notches over the
weekend, when Prime Minister Alexis
Tsipras announced he would put a deal

proposal by creditors to a referendum


on Sunday and urged a No vote.
The move increased fears the country
could soon fall out of the euro currency
bloc and Greeks rushed to pull money
out of ATMs, leading the government
to shutter its banks Monday and
impose restrictions on banking transactions for at least a week. Greeks are
now limited to ATM withdrawals of 60
euros ($67) a day and cannot send
money abroad or make international
payments without special permission.
But in a surprise move late Tuesday,
Deputy Prime Minister Yannis
Dragasakis hinted that the government
might be open to calling off the popular vote, saying it was a political decision.

JetBlue adding bag checking fee


By Scott Mayerowitz
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK The era of free


checked suitcases on JetBlue has come
to an end.
The airline proudly proclaimed itself
a holdout on fees for years, allowing
passengers to check one bag for free.
Now it will charge up to $25 for
checked luggage.
The move leaves Southwest Airlines
as the only major U.S. carrier not to
charge a bag fee.
JetBlue Airways had announced the

change in November but didnt detail


how it would be implemented until
Tuesday. The fee only applies to new
bookings; existing reservations still
get one free bag.
Passengers will pay less if they plan
ahead. Those with the cheapest tickets
will pay $20 each way if they check in
online or at a kiosk. The fee jumps to
$25 if they go to the counter. A new
fare class that costs about $15 extra
each way would include one free bag.
Fees for a second checked bag and
reservation changes are being lowered.
The airline plans to reinvest the mil-

lions of dollars it will collect from bag


fees into new seats and TVs, according
to Marty St. George, JetBlues executive vice president of commercial
products and planning.
Some of these changes are going to
help pay for whats the biggest product
upgrade JetBlue has had in the history
of the company, he told the
Associated Press in advance of the
announcement.
Under pressure from investors and
Wall Street analysts, JetBlue has been
slowly adopting the practices of other
airlines.

United Airlines investing $30 million in biofuels producer


By David Koenig
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

United Airlines says it is investing


$30 million in a biofuels company to
reduce its vulnerability to oil-price
shocks and limits on carbon emissions from planes.
United officials said Tuesday that
they expect to begin receiving fuel
from Fulcrum BioEnergy Inc. in 2018
and could be taking 90 million gallons
a year by 2021.

Thats enough fuel for 20, 000


flights a year but just a drop in
Uniteds fuel bucket. The nations second-biggest airline burned 3.9 billion
gallons last year, including United
Express flights.
United officials declined to disclose
the airlines ownership stake in privately held Fulcrum, but the investment is a tiny fraction of United
Continental Holdings Inc.s $1.1 billion profit last year.
Still, Chicago-based United touted

the deal as the biggest single investment in biofuels by a U.S. airline so


far. Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific
announced an investment in Fulcrum
last year.
Aircraft are a major producer of
emissions blamed for climate change,
and pressure is building for them to
reduce emissions. The Obama administration has taken early steps toward
setting emission standards, following
the lead of an international aviation
authority.

its the worst case scenario and Greece


drops out (of the euro), the pullback
probably wouldnt be gigantic, said
Scott Wren, a senior global equity
strategist at the Wells Fargo
Investment Institute.
In European trading, the Stoxx 50
index of leading European shares fell
1.3 percent. Germanys DAX dropped
1. 2 percent, while the CAC-40 in
France fell 1.6 percent.
In the U.S., Willis Group Holdings
rose $1.50, or 3.3 percent, to $46.90
after the insurance broker said it will
combine with Towers Watson in a deal
valued at about $18 billion.
Bond insurers, including MBIA and
Ambac, fell sharply for a second day
as investors followed the debt crisis
in Puerto Rico. Credit-rating firm
Standard & Poors said that a default,
or a restructuring, of the islands debt
within the next six months appeared
inevitable.
Puerto Ricos governor said
Monday night he will form a financial
team to negotiate with bondholders
on delaying debt payments and then
restructuring $72 billion in public
debt that he says the island cant
repay.
If Greece wasnt happening, this
would be a major story right now,
said JJ Kinanhan, chief strategist at
TD Ameritrade.

American stages epic comeback


Mateo American downed Pacifica American
12-6 in extra innings.
In fact, Sakai realized it twice. First, he
delivered a two-out RBI single in the sixth
inning to cap an unthinkable five-run comeback to tie the game 6-6. Then in extra
innings, he produced a two-run single to
score Zach Cimino and Lucas Tapia, giving
American an 8-6 lead before they went on to
break the game open with a six-run rally.
When we took that lead, I was like this
is like a miracle. Is this a dream? Sakai said.
We play with that situation all the time, but I
never dreamed it would actually come to life.
The elimination-game victory saw the

unlikeliest of comebacks, as American entered


the sixth inning the final regulation
inning in Little League tournament play
trailing 6-1. To steep the comeback in drama,
American trailed by that margin with one runner on and two outs; and they were down to
their last strike with Brian Kwan at the plate.
With a 0-2 count, Kwan identified an
inside fastball heat-seeking into the batters
box. The 10-year-old Kwan stood his ground
and barely flinched as the pitch hit him
square in the back.

Wimbledon champs cruise; Bouchard, Halep out


By Stephen Wilson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON It looked all too easy for the


champions at the All England Club. It was
another story, though, for one of last years
finalists and for one of the highest seeded
women in the draw.
Defending womens champion Petra
Kvitova and former mens winners Roger
Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray all
won their first-round matches at Wimbledon
on Tuesday in straight sets.
The big names imposed themselves on
Day 2 of the grass-court Grand Slam as
London basked in warm, sunny conditions.
But, late in the day, there were two major
casualties in the womens field.
First, Eugenie Bouchard, who was runnerup at Wimbledon last year, fell in the opening round, losing 7-6 (3), 6-4 to Duan YingYing a 117th-ranked Chinese qualifier
who was playing at Wimbledon for the first
time and had never before won a Grand Slam
match.
Bouchard seemed to be the new star of
womens tennis last year when she reached
at least the semifinals at the first three
Grand Slam tournaments. She made a stirring run to the Wimbledon final, where she
lost to Kvitova.
This year, the 21-year-old Canadian lost
10 of 11 matches in one stretch and also
went out in the first round at the French
Open.
Bouchard, who served 10 double-faults on
Tuesday, said she was still hampered by the
abdominal injury that forced her to retire
from last weeks grass-court tournament in
Eastbourne. She said she had been advised
not to play at Wimbledon, but decided she

The second-seeded Federer, bidding to


become the first man to win eight
Wimbledon titles, broke five times and
never faced a break point.
I must say Im very happy, always, to
win like that, he said.
Nadal, a two-time champion, coasted to a
6-4, 6-2, 6-4 win over Thomaz Bellucci of
Brazil on Court 1. He hopped in the air and
pumped his fist after completing the victory.
Here the feeling in Wimbledon is so special, and playing on grass, too, Nadal said.
So always is very emotional when you hit
some good shots in this beautiful club.
Murray, the 2013 winner, faced a stiffer
test against Mikhail Kukushkin of
Kazakhstan. But the third-seeded Briton
rewarded his adoring home fans on Centre
Court with a 6-4, 7-6 (3), 6-4 win in a little

mercy-rule win, San Mateo
American manager Tom Mori took
Kwan out after 1 2/3 innings to
preserve his pitch count.
You need to have as many pitchers as possible, Mori said. So
with a big lead, you can get other
kids experience and save [Kwan]
for another game. And that game
was today.
It was Sakai who hurled the final 1
2/3 innings, however, to earn the
win.
With the loss, Pacifica Nationals
Distirct 52 Minors season is over.
Pacifica fell to the losers bracket in
Saturdays tourney opener with a 101 loss to San Carlos American.
Pacifica stayed alive Sunday with a
22-6 thrashing of Palo Alto
American.
Tuesdays
starting
pitcher
Brenden Passasinni-Boullet was a
tourney highlight for Pacifica. Not
only did allow just one run through
4 2/3 innings against San Mateo

American, he was 2 for 5 at the


plate. Passasinni-Boullet a dead
ringer for Giants pitcher Matt Cain,
and at 10 years old is already just a
few inches shorter than Cain
went 8 for 12 in the tournament.
Brando Cunningham paced Pacifica
American with hits in the tourney,
going 11 for 14.
Eight of the 13 players on
Pacificas roster eight are 9-year-olds.

HMB stays alive


In Tuesdays other elimination
game. Half Moon Bay rode the right
arm of Ben Cleary to an 11-0 mercyrule win over San Carlos American.
Cleary fired a two-hit shutout in his
second consecutive start of the tournament.
He was just throwing strikes,
HMB manager Brian Lewis said. He
was really attacking early in the
count. Really pro style.
Cleary last took the ball Sunday
in an 11-0 win over Redwood City
West, but exited early with a big
lead.

MIAMI Major league batting


leader Dee Gordon hit the first
inside-the-park homer in the fouryear history of Marlins Park, and
the three-run shot helped Miami
beat the San Francisco Giants 5-3
Tuesday night.
Miamis Justin Bour also homered, giving a welcome jolt of power
to a team without injured slugger
Giancarlo Stanton.
Buster Posey hit his 12th homer
for the Giants. He has 18 RBIs in
his past 10 games.
Mat Latos (3-5) gave up three
runs, two earned, in six innings.
Four relievers completed a six-hitter.
Carter Capps, throwing at up to
99 mph, struck out the side in the
eighth. He has 38 strikeouts in 20
2-3 innings to go with an ERA of
0.87.
A.J. Ramos followed with a perfect ninth for his 11th save. He was
helped by a terrific play from Bour,
who did a face plant at first catching third baseman Miguel Rojas
throw to rob Andrew Susac of a hit.
Ryan Vogelsong (6-6) allowed
four runs in six innings.
The Marlins won despite going 1
for 10 with runners in scoring position, with Gordons homer the lone
hit. Theyve gone 2-5 on their
homestand while batting 3 for 48
(.063) with runners in scoring
position.
Gordon, who came into the game
leading the majors with 112 hits,

made use of his


speed for his
first homer of
the year to
r i g h t - c e n t e r.
Right
fielder
Gregor Blanco
chased the ball
down just short
Dee Gordon of the wall and
tried to flip it
with his glove behind his back to
center fielder Angel Pagan, but they
missed connection.
Gordon kept running and scored
easily with a headfirst slide.
The homer came with two outs in
the second inning and extended
Gordons hitting streak to 11
games.
Posey homered in the third. He
doubled and scored on a two-out
wild pitch by Latos in the sixth to
make it 4-3.

Local hero
RHP Chris Heston, a native of
Palm Bay, Florida, received the key
to the city from the mayor before

honor Heston for his no-hitter June
9 against the Mets.

SOCCER
Continued from page 11
Previous games in Montreal had the stadium less than half
full, with the upper bowl completely empty.
The United States had several good chances from the start.
Julie Johnston missed on a header off a corner kick from
Megan Rapinoe, and Alex Morgans breakaway in the 15th
minute was stopped by goaltender Nadine Angerer.
There was a scary moment in the rst half when Germanys
Alexandra Popp and American midelder Morgan Brian collided in front of the U.S. goal following a free kick from about
25 yards out.
Television cameras caught blood in Popps hair, and Brian
was prone on the eld for several minutes. Both players
returned to the match.
After a scoreless rst half, Lloyd had a header bounce inches wide to open the second.
Sasics penalty kick came after Johnston fouled Popp in the
box. Sasic fooled Solo, who went right, but her kick went
wide left, prompting a roar from the crowd.
Sasic went into the match as the tournaments high scorer
with six goals.
Shortly thereafter, Annike Krahn got a yellow card for foul-

ing Morgan in the box, but replays showed it occurred just


outside. Lloyds penalty kick was her third goal in three
matches.
OHara scored on Lloyds left-footed cross.
The United States tweaked its formation for the match.
Morgan started up top, with Lloyd as an attacking midelder
with Rapinoe and Tobin Heath on the wings.
The U.S. had success in its quarternal against China when
it had Lloyd roaming up top and Brian back as a holding midelder. Lloyd scored the lone goal in the 1-0 victory.
The United States improved to 3-1 against Germany in
World Cup matches and 19-4-7 overall.
The United States has won two World Cup titles, but none
since 1999. The Americans have appeared in the seminals of
all seven of the womens tournaments.
Germany has also won the title twice, in consecutive tournaments in 2003 and 07.
This tournament has played out with FIFA embroiled in
scandal.
Earlier Tuesday, FIFA conrmed that President Sepp Blatter
would skip the World Cup nal, as U.S. ofcials pursue a criminal investigation into the games ruling body.
Blatters second-in-command, secretary general Jerome
Valcke, also will be absent from the biggest event in
womens soccer due to their current commitments in Zurich,
FIFA said in a statement Tuesday.

Changes to Downtown
Parking Begin July 1st
Smarter Easier Simpler
After July 1, 2015, new color coded parking areas,
orange in the Downtown core and green along the
perimeter, will help you determine the best place to
park. Where you'll park depends on the amount of
time you need, your reason for visiting downtown,
and the amount you want to pay.
Park in the Orange Area if you are running an errand,
need less time, and don't mind paying a little more. The
higher price encourages turnover, makes it easier for you
and other customers to find a spot, and is better for business.
Park in the Green Area if you are a downtown employee,
need more time, and don't mind a little walk. This area is a few
steps from the Downtown core, it's less expensive, and provides
more options for all-day parking.

Injured Bolt withdraws


from Diamond League
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PARIS Slowed by an injured left leg, Usain Bolt withdrew


Tuesday from this months Diamond League meetings in Paris
and Lausanne, dealing a blow to his title defense preparations
for the world championships in August.
Im disappointed not to be able to compete in Paris and
Lausanne, Bolt said in a statement on his website. I love
running at these meetings but at the moment I am unable to
compete at 100 percent. I look forward to getting back into
full training as soon as possible.
The statement said the 28-year-old has
been feeling discomfort in his left leg
since his last competition which has
restricted his training.
Bolts last race was a 200 meters in New
York on June 13 that he described as really bad. His time of 20.29 was more than a
second off his world record of 19.19. He
said then that he felt good physically and
was bewildered why he ran what he called
Usain Bolt
probably one of the worst turns Ive ever
had in my entire life.
Bolt also was a no-show at the Jamaica trials last week
where he had been expected to sharpen his sprinting form
against the likes of Asafa Powell and Yohan Blake.
Bolts agent, Ricky Simms, said then that the 100- and
200-meter world record holder was never certain to run at the
trials and suggested that Bolts coach, Glen Mills, instead
preferred him to train rather than race ahead of the Paris meet
on Saturday and the Lausanne event on July 9.
Bolts doctor in Munich, Hans-Wilhelm Mueller-Wohlfahrt,
diagnosed a blocked joint which is restricting his movement
and putting pressure on his knee and ankle, the statement on
Bolts website said.
It said Bolt will spend the next couple of days in Munich
getting treatment after which he will resume full training in
his quest to defend his titles in the 100 and 200 at the world
championships in Beijing.
Bolt has a proven record of raising his level for major
championships. But his injury and interrupted training would
seem to strengthen Justin Gatlin as favorite for the worlds.

term. Agent Jarrett Bousquet said the two sides agreed Tuesday
night to a $9 million, three-year contract.
With Tuukka Rask entrenched as the starter in Boston, the
Bruins ended up flipping the pending restricted free agent Jones
for more young players. In all, Boston got two first-round
picks, defense prospect Colin Miller and Kuraly for Lucic. The
Bruins used the pick from the Kings on defenseman Jakub
Zboril.
The trade gives Jones the opportunity to be a starting goalie
after spending the past two seasons as Jonathan Quicks backup
in Los Angeles.
I think Im ready to definitely take that step and play more
hockey games, Jones said. I had a great two years in L.A.
learning from Jonathan Quick. Its been a big couple of years in
my development and Im looking forward to the new challenge.
If Jones beats out Alex Stalock for the starting job in San Jose
as expected, his first game for the Sharks could come in the season opener at Los Angeles on Oct. 7. That would put him on the
other side of the fierce California rivalry.
Its going to be fun to be honest with you, Jones said. You
get to play those guys a lot. Obviously they have a great team.
To be able to play those guys is fun. Im looking forward to it.
Although Jones played just 15 games last season, he has been
a standout backup for two years in Los Angeles, winning his
NHL-record first eight career starts in late 2013 before earning a
Stanley Cup ring in 2014.
Jones has played 34 games and started 29 in two seasons as
Jonathan Quicks backup on the Kings. He has a 16-11-2 record
with a 1.99 goals-against average, .923 save percentage and
seven career shutouts.
When you can find a player who fits for now and the future we
have no problem paying a cost for it, Wilson said. We believe
strongly in this player. After talking to him this morning he was
really excited. He was behind a dominant goaltender in L.A. and
would have been in the same situation in Boston. He feels like
its his time and we agree with him.
Kuraly was drafted by San Jose in the fifth round in 2011. He
had 19 goals and 10 assists in 40 games for Miami University
last season. He is entering his senior season.
The Sharks also officially announced the signing of defenseman Brenden Dillon to a $16.35 million, five-year deal that had
been agreed to on Monday.
San Jose also issued qualifying offers to restricted free agent
goalie Aaron Dell and forward Daniil Tarasov. Goalie J.P.
Anderson, defenseman Taylor Doherty and forwards Eriah Hayes
and Rylan Schwartz were not tendered offers and will be unrestricted free agents.

OAKLAND Jorge De La Rosa


pitched seven strong innings to
carry the Colorado Rockies past
the Oakland Athletics 2-1 Tuesday
night for their first interleague
win of the season.
Charlie Blackmon singled to
break a scoreless tie in the fifth.
Nolan Arenado singled in the
fourth to extend his major leagueleading hitting streak to a careerhigh 17 games.
Troy Tulowitzki also singled and
has hit in 14 straight for the
Rockies, who snapped a threegame skid.
Colorado had been 0-7 in interleague games this season and had
lost 14 straight in American
League ballparks before De La
Rosa and two relievers combined
on a six-hitter.
The As were without ace Sonny
Gray, scratched from his scheduled
start before the game because of
illness.
De La Rosa (5-3) gave up four
hits and struck out four with four
walks in his first appearance
against the As since 2009. The
left-hander needs one strikeout to
reach 1,000 for his career.
LaTroy Hawkins pitched the
ninth for his second save.
Hawkins was needed to close after

Bassitt.
Called up from the minors before
the game, Bassitt (0-1) retired his
first 10 batters and didnt allow a
baserunner until Tulowitzki flared
a single to left that landed just in
front of a charging Mark Canha.
Colorado broke through when
Blackmons two-out single in the
fifth drove in Ben Paulsen.
Bassitt gave up five hits and one
run in five innings. He struck out
three and didnt walk a batter.
Wilin Rosario singled and
scored on a wild pitch by Fernando
Rodriguez in the seventh.
De La Rosa made it stand up after
pitching out of a bases-loaded,
one-out jam in the sixth. He also
benefited
from
Colorados
defense, which turned two double
plays.
Ben Zobrist had two hits and
scored Oaklands run in the eighth
on Billy Butlers two-out single
off reliever Tommy Kahnle.

PALU
Continued from page 11
tackles. But his height makes him perfect
for the center spot, where coaches look for
players with lower centers of gravity.
Thats where the shorter guys need to go,
center, said Bret Pollack, CSM head coach
and offensive coordinator. The biggest
concern was the height. Thats why we
moved him to center. A lot of times, people
are scratched (from consideration) because
of height. With Benji, (the question was)
will someone take a shot on him, even
though he doesnt have long arms? What he
got here (at CSM) was a chance to play at a
higher level and answer some of those questions.
Palu credits Pollack for instilling in him
the mindset of controlling what he could
control. Palu didnt have much say on his
height, but Palu had total control of the
effort he gave in the classroom, in the
weight room and on the field.
Benji has always been doing things
the right way. Doing things to the best of
his ability, Pollack said. Thats served
him well. He strived to get better every day.

SPORTS
Palu was an NCAA qualifier coming out of
high school and had the opportunity to walk
on with several programs, but he wanted
more. He started by enrolling and playing at
CSM.
Coming to CSM was probably the best
decision ever, Palu said. Not only did they
prepare me for university-level courses, but
taught me how to be a man, how to carry
yourself as an adult. They helped me mature
a lot.
While Burlingame helped prepare Palu for
CSM, CSM has prepared him for the fouryear level, which was the gatekeeper for
playing at a four-year school. Palu said if a
player doesnt have the grades, recruiters
wont even talk about football.
The biggest thing about four-year college coaches, the first thing that comes out
of their mouths is, I want to see your
grades, Palu said. Before they introduce
themselves, theyll ask me my GPA, about
my high school grades. Education is number
one with all four-year coaches.
Before they even mention football, they
pick
at
your
transcripts.
Pollack said the requirements necessary to
get into a four-year school has changed
and they are even more stringent for studentathletes than non-student-athletes.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

Because of that, schools are being much


more selective of who they take, as far as
performance in the classroom, Pollack
said. [Grades are a] big filter.
Added Palu: The work in the classroom
plays a big part (in the recruiting process).
Now, Palu just has to show the Cal coaches that he can get it done in the trenches as
well.
All I ever really needed was an opportunity and fortunately Cal was the school that
would give me the opportunity and take the
risk, Palu said. I know for a lot of coaches
it is a risk, but I know wherever I ended up
Id give my full 110 percent.
Philipopoulos believes Palu will open
some eyes at the next level.
If you look at DI football players who
play offensive line, they are typically 6-4,
6-5. Benji is not that, but hes done enough
to put himself into a position to play
against those guys, Philipopoulos said.
Its a great success story. I think Benji is
PATRICK NGUYEN/CSM FOOTBALL
one of my favorite players Ive coached Benji Palu, a 2013 Burlingame alum, evolved

FOOD

Using a spiral cutter to put a


healthy twist on french fries
By Melissa DArabian
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Ive been watching the zoodle craze


from the sidelines. Admittedly, Ive been
tempted to jump in. Noodles made from
healthy zucchini using a super-cool spiral
cutter? Yes, please!
But truthfully, Ive harbored fears that the
fad (and my interest) would quickly fade,
leaving me with one more gadget to add to
the donation pile.
If you havent seen a spiral cutter, it is a
small piece of kitchen equipment (several
companies offer different models and styles)
that cuts vegetables into (very!) long, curly
noodle shapes. You push the vegetable into
the blade area, turning it, hence the spiral.
I suppose my husband got tired of seeing
me eye the contraption every time we
shopped the kitchen supply store because I
got a spiral cutter for Mothers Day this
year! And now I cant stop using it.
One of my favorite dishes is the zoodles,
which can be eaten raw (toss with lemon
juice, black pepper and Parmesan cheese) or
can be softened by sauteeing for 2 to 3 minutes in a bit of olive oil before tossing with
your favorite pasta sauce for a low-carb dish.
But Im also spiral cutting sweet potatoes,
cucumbers, radishes, turnips, carrots and
even apples.
The spiral hit of the summer, though, has
to be these baked curly fries. Oven fries are
a great healthy alternative to the usual deepfried french fries. But oven fries have always
left us feeling a bit deprived, unsure whether
the french fry itch has been adequately
scratched. Until now. We truly love these

oven fries! And with only 1 teaspoon of oil


per recipe, these oven fries alone are worth
the price of the spiral cutter.

views conducted during community events
such as the Posy Parade, according to a presentation by Shawn Spano of the Public
Dialogue Consortium during the board meeting.
Spano, whose organization conducted the
outreach campaign, said a majority of residents who participated expressed interest in
upgrading or expanding the services provided by the library, recreation center, gymnasium, community pool and other similar projects, which would offer lasting benefits for
generations of San Bruno residents.
Residents offered a variety of in-depth and
creative suggestions for use of the fund,
which will give foundation board members a
clear gauge of the wishes of the community,
said Spano.
There was really wonderful participa-

LOCAL
tion, he said. This has been a wildly successful project.
But as the foundation begins to examine
the feasibility of such projects, and develop
a spending strategy for the fund, Hatamiya
noted the need to identify at least a ballpark
figure estimating the amount of money
required to construct such developments.
We need some basic cost information,
she said.
The foundation also needs to decide
whether the best strategy is to spend the
money on one of the large suggested projects, or develop an investment strategy for
the fund which would allow it to grow over
coming years.
Hatamiya has suggested possibly setting
up an endowment with money as an alternative approach to managing the fund.
Should the foundation pursue developing a
large public benefit project, board members
would need to meet with representatives of
the city and other nearby organizations to
potentially collaborate and leverage assets,
said Hatamiya.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

John McGlothlin, vice president of the


foundation, echoed those sentiments.
I think its very important that we need to
sit down with the city and other organizations such as the schools and talk about what
we have learned and get their thoughts and
hear from them on things they have
planned, he said.
Some residents had expressed interest in
seeing foundation money used to improve
city infrastructure, beautify downtown or
benefit the city elementary school district
that has been suffering a structural deficit for
the better part of a decade.
McGlothlin emphasized the need to communicate with school and city officials to
ensure all parties were on the same page
regarding potential projects.
We need to make sure we dont have dueling objectives or dueling goals, because I
think that wastes everybodys time, he said.

smaller projects early next year.


Board members expressed appreciation for
the guidance offered by residents, which will
ultimately influence the spending strategy
for the fund.
I think the feedback is rich, said board
member Regina Stanback Stroud.
Other members noted the immense amount
of work that needs to take place in the coming months to allow some of the goals identified to come to fruition.
We have got a big job ahead of us and a lot
of heavy lifting, said board member Patricia
Bohm.
The San Bruno Community Foundation
Board of Directors is responsible for allocating nearly $70 million in restitution funds
granted by Pacific Gas and Electric in the
wake of the 2010 gas line explosion that
killed eight people and injured 66.
The fund that the foundation controls is
distinct and separate from the $50 million
trust agreement to specifically benefit the
Crestmoor neighborhood, which suffered the
brunt of the blast.

PG&E
Continued from page 1
Tuesday as part of its $3 billion in safety improvements since
one of its local lines exploded in San Bruno in 2010, killing
eight and injuring 66.
As part of the work to be performed in the area, PG&E crews
have already conducted a mile-by-mile analysis of San Mateo
Countys natural gas transmission pipeline system. It has
identified structures, sheds, trees and shrubbery that experts
believe pose threats to the safety and integrity of gas
pipelines, said company spokesman Jeff Smith.
Harold Schapelhouman, Menlo Park Fire Protection
District chief, said Tuesday that the initiative is a proactive
step by the company toward safety.
Their culture of safety appears to be improving,
Schapelhouman said.
Vegetation and roots can compromise their system, he said.
Its smart to mitigate the risk, he said.
The company may need to replace trees and other obstacles
located too close to underground pipelines to make communities safer, Smith said.
We completely understand how important trees and landscape are to families, the community and the environment.
We want our customers to know that if a tree needs to be
replaced for safety reasons we will listen to their concerns and
work together with the property owner to ensure the natural
beauty of the area is restored, Smith said.
Last month, the utility temporarily shut down gas transmission Line 147 in San Carlos after crews discovered two
unexplained bulges or dents in a section of the line near
Tasker Lane as crews were performing a routine inspection.
Line 147 was a source of controversy in late 2013 when it
was revealed that there were November 2012 emails by a
PG&E engineer questioning the safety of 84-year-old gas
transmission line which runs parallel to Brittan Avenue.
The former engineer suggested the city could be another
San Bruno situation in reference to the deadly Sept. 9, 2010,
gas transmission Line 138 explosion and fire that destroyed
38 homes.
Since the San Bruno incident, the utility has provided data
first responders in the area can use to identify where all the gas
transmission lines are, Schapelhouman said.
He also praised PG&E ground crews for working alongside
fire officials and law enforcement whenever lines go down or
smaller pipes are compromised.
We have a good relationship with PG&E field forces, he
said.

Truffle dogs can sniff out

used pigs, but in recent years the job has


gone to the dogs, which are easier to manage, less conspicuous and less likely to eat
the tasty tubers or bite a hand trying to
snatch one from its mouth.
Known as the diamonds of the culinary
world, most black truffles come from
Europe or Australia and cost $800 to
$1,200 per pound, but supplies are shrinking while appetites are expanding worldwide, said Robert Chang, chief truffle officer of the American Truffle Company.
As people get richer all the time, the
demand for truffles will continue to grow,
Chang said. Ten years ago, you mention
the word truffles, and people think, Oh,
its the chocolate truffles.
European black truffles, the ones most
coveted for their powerful taste and aroma,
are notoriously fickle. Few in North
America have successfully harvested them,
but many are trying because the crop could
be highly profitable.
The American Truffle Company is working with dozens of landowners across the
U.S. to grow European black truffles commercially. Its still too early to judge their
success since the orchards were planted less
than five years ago, and it takes at least
that long for truffles to ripen.
But in March, Changs colleague, Paul
Thomas, said he harvested Britains first
cultivated black truffle from fungus he
planted in Leicestershire six years ago,
using the same techniques their company is
using in the U.S. and other countries.
In Californias wine-growing regions of
Napa and Sonoma valleys, the American
Truffle Company is working with several
winemakers, including Sinskey, Rocca
Family Vineyards, former Intel Corp. CEO
Paul Otellini and most recently Peju
Province Winery.

HAIR
Continued from page 1
respectable black men its called a
modern fade where the hair is
longer in the middle and shorter on
the sides, said Kimberly Thomas
Rapp, executive director of the
Layers Committee for Civil Rights
of the San Francisco Bay Area, which
filed the complaint on behalf of the
Broussards.
But when the kindergartner returned
to school Dec. 18, his mother
received a call from staff saying she
had to retrieve her son because his
haircut was outside of the schools
hairstyle policy and could unduly
influence the student body, according
to the complaint.
Were supposed to be partners in
education, said mom Marianna
Broussard. My main concern was
just their defining this policy and the
way theyre enforcing it is not culturally inclusive.
Ultimately, Jalyn Broussard was
allowed to finish off the day at the
behest of his mother who quickly
shaved his head so he could attend a
Christmas function the following
evening. However, the Broussards
say the school did not equally enforce
the policy as at least three other students two Caucasians and one
Asian were permitted to wear more
extreme Mohawk, faux hawk or
spiked hairstyles.
It is about the fact that the school
simply targeted Jalyn whos a young,
African-American student wearing
this popular hairstyle, Thomas
Rapp said. I think there needs to be
a modification of the policy to take
into account cultural differences and
then be some substantive training for
school staff so as not to act in a
biased manner against young
African-American children. Because
for Jalyn to be asked to leave the
school, to leave class and not to
come back until his hair was cut, was
unfair and a discriminatory act.

YEE
Continued from page 1
I cant confirm who is going to say
what and who is going to do what,
Simmons said.
Yees attorney, James Lassart, did
not immediately return a message
seeking comment.
The FBI arrested Yee and 19 others
in 2014 during a series of raids
throughout the San Francisco Bay
Area. He is accused of soliciting and

The Immaculate Heart of Mary


School, which falls under the umbrella of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese
of San Francisco, has a clear hairstyle policy that all parents must
sign before enrolling their children,
said Archdiocese spokesman Larry
Kamer. While unable to comment on
the specific allegations in the complaint, Kamer said the school and
Archdiocese takes the matter very
seriously.
Teaching respect for individuals,
teaching respect for diversity,
respect for the whole person, these
are kind of bedrock values at IHM and
other Catholic schools. So any time
someone raises a concern that they
may not have been treated in accordance with those values, thats a situation we take seriously, Kamer said.
So we are taking this very seriously
and trying to figure out the nature of
the complaint and what happened.
Marianna Broussard, who had her
other son Noah Broussard in the second-grade at the time, said shes since
removed both of her children from
Immaculate Heart of Mary School and
they are doing well at the nearby Fox
Elementary School.
Marianna Broussard said her concern grew as she attempted to communicate with the schools Principal
Terri Grosey about why her sons

exchange for campaign contributions.

hearings scheduled Wednesday are

when we cut his hair, then another
child came to school with a very similar haircut and instead of saying
were going to use the same action,
apply the same rule, they justified it
and said no, its a modern crew cut,
Broussard said.
The committee filed the complaint
with the Office for Civil Rights
requesting the school reimburse the
Broussards for their two sons fall
tuition, which amounts to about
$8,000, be absolved from having to
pay the spring tuition and require the
school to institute cultural sensitivity training to employees.
Marianna Broussard alleges she
tried on multiple occasions to talk
with Grosey in an attempt to make
sure the schools hair policy was
equitable and wasnt applied discriminatorily based on the texture of her
sons hair. But after seeing other
children being permitted to have similar haircuts without consequence, the
concerned Belmont mother said she
felt it best to leave the private institution. Grosey referred questions
about
the
incident
to
the
Archdiocese.
Now 6 years old, Jalyn Broussard is
doing well at his new school, but it
wasnt easy for him to be singled out
at the Catholic school then readjust
to a new academic environment
midyear, Marianna Broussard said.
He was ostracized that day at
school, he was really singled out and
was very well aware that he wasnt
allowed to be there because of his
haircut and how he looked and I think
what it ended up seeming like, was
that it was because he was AfricanAmerican, and hes just one out of
five at the school, Marianna
Broussard said. If we cant have a
productive discussion about appearances, what if a discussion about academics comes up? What are the double
standards we dont see or cant be
explained to us because theyre
kids?

BEIRUT Islamic State fighters on Tuesday launched a


surprise attack on a Syrian border town recently seized by
U.S.-backed Kurdish forces, taking positions in the eastern
part of the town and waging fierce gun battles with its
defenders, activists said.
The attack on Tal Abyad resembled another surprise
assault by the IS group last week on the border town of
Kobani, where Kurdish forces backed by U.S.-led airstrikes
had driven out the extremists in January. The two attacks
brutally displayed the extremists resilience and signaled a
possible change in tactics following a string of defeats at
the hands of Kurdish forces.
Kurdish activist Mustafa Bali said Tuesday that IS fighters
killed 233 people in Kobani, including 100 children, saying most of those killed were shot in cold blood, some
inside their homes. He said 35 Kurdish fighters were killed
following the June 25 attack.
Rami Abdurrahman, head of the Syrian Observatory of
Human Rights, a U.K.-based monitoring group with a network of activists inside Syria, said 223 civilians were
killed in Kobani, including scores of women and children, as well as 37 Kurdish fighters. It was not immediately
possible to reconcile the slightly different tolls.
Kurdish fighters captured Tal Abyad two weeks ago -denying the IS group a crucial border crossing used to bring
in supplies and foreign fighters and causing immediate
price hikes in areas under IS control. Backed by U.S.-led
airstrikes, the Kurds then advanced south toward the extremist groups de facto capital, Raqqa.
