Port plans to deepen harbor


Dredging will allow more cargo to move through Port of Redwood City
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has


approved a plan to do some major dredging
work in the Bay to allow more cargo to
move through the Port of Redwood City.
The $73 million project would deepen the
Redwood City Harbor and San Bruno Shoal
channels near San Francisco International
Airport so ships can carry more cargo to the
port.

The project is a partnership between the


Corps of Engineers and port and will need
final approval from Congress, said the
ports Executive Director Michael Giari.
This is a major milestone for the port,
he said.
The corps approved the project after
studying it for five years.
Big ships now have to carry less payload. They could carry more cargo per trip if
the channel is deepened, Giari said
Thursday.

A draft environmental impact report is


being circulated now that the public can
comment on until Aug. 24.
A public hearing on the Redwood City
Navigation Improvement Project is set for
Aug. 10.
The work will increase the depth of the
channels from 30 feet to 32 feet. Work
around Redwood City Harbor will slightly
realign the channel to avoid sensitive environmental features of Bair and Greco
islands.

The channel would be realigned about 6


feet to the east away from Bair Island.
Many ships that currently call on the port
either have to wait for favorable tides or
carry lighter loads to access it, Giari said
Thursday.
The plan recommended by the Corps of
Engineers calls for dredging 1.4 million
cubic yards and dispose it 50 miles offshore
in the Pacific Ocean east of the Golden Gate

Local education officials rallied to advocate in favor of


repealing a state regulation which limits the amount of
money school districts can squirrel away in reserves.
Members of school boards throughout San Mateo County
gathered Thursday, July 9, at the San Francisco Unified
School District Office with other education officials from
across the Bay Area to publicly express disdain for a requirement for most state school districts to cap reserve funds at
roughly 6 percent.
Legislation requiring the reserve limitation was passed
last year as a trailer bill, Senate Bill 858, to the state budget, and education advocates have admonished lawmakers
since it went into effect.
Educators were hopeful Gov. Jerry Brown and legislators
would agree to lift the cap during the most recent round of
budget negotiations, but in the wake of a $115.4 billion
spending plan passing with the limitation remaining in
place, an advocacy campaign is ramping up again, said

South City stalls Highway 101 billboard plan Stricter smoking law proposed
Officials have concerns on lasting ramifications of sign proposal

San Carlos council to consider expanding smoking ban

By Austin Walsh

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

South San Francisco officials pumped the


brakes on a proposed alteration along the
citys stretch of Highway 101, as councilmembers elected to postpone deciding
whether to OK constructing a new digital
billboard facing Peninsula commuters.
The council unanimously agreed during a
meeting Wednesday, July 8, to wait until
more information was available regarding

the impact of a proposal to amend the citys


ordinance, which would loosen restrictions
on the amount of digital billboards allowed
to be built on the section of Highway 101
through South San Francisco.
Media conglomerate and advertising giant
Clear Channel offered the city an annual sum
of $140,000, with a 12.5 percent escalation
every five years over the life of a 30-year
contract, to post a digital billboard due west

With complaints against smokers piling


up in San Carlos, the City Council will consider stricter prohibitions near parks at its
Monday night meeting.
The City Council adopted an ordinance in
2004 to prohibit smoking on athletic fields
and within 25 feet of playgrounds but did
not prohibit smoking in other areas of city
parks and facilities, according to a staff
report by Parks and Recreation Director

Christine Boland.
The city has received complaints from residents and businesses regarding a high level
of smoking activity in smaller parks, such
as Harrington and City Hall parks, Boland
wrote in the report.
Additional complaints have been received
regarding people smoking closer than the
established 25 feet at the Burton and
Crestview playground areas and at

The people I distrust most

This Day in History


During World War II, the Battle of
Britain began as the Luftwaffe started
attacking southern England. (The
Royal Air Force was ultimately victorious.)
In 1 5 0 9 , theologian John Calvin, a key figure of the
Protestant Reformation, was born in Noyon, Picardy, France.
In 1 8 9 0 , Wyoming became the 44th state.
In 1 9 1 9 , President Woodrow Wilson personally delivered
the Treaty of Versailles to the Senate and urged its ratification.
(However, the Senate rejected it.)
In 1 9 2 5 , jury selection took place in Dayton, Tennessee, in
the trial of John T. Scopes, charged with violating the law by
teaching Darwins Theory of Evolution. (Scopes was convicted and fined, but the verdict was overturned on a technicality.)
In 1 9 2 9 , American paper currency was reduced in size as the
government began issuing bills that were approximately 25
percent smaller.
In 1 9 4 3 , during World War II, U.S. and British forces invaded Sicily.
In 1 9 5 1 , armistice talks aimed at ending the Korean War
began at Kaesong.
In 1 9 6 2 , AT&Ts Telstar 1 communications satellite, capable of relaying television signals and telephone calls, was
launched by NASA from Cape Canaveral.
In 1 9 7 3 , the Bahamas became fully independent after three
centuries of British colonial rule. John Paul Getty III, the
teenage grandson of the oil tycoon, was abducted in Rome by
kidnappers who cut off his ear when his family was slow to
meet their ransom demands; young Getty was released in
December 1973 for nearly $3 million.
In 1 9 8 5 , the Greenpeace protest ship Rainbow Warrior was
sunk with explosives in Auckland, New Zealand, by French
intelligence agents; one activist was killed. Bowing to pressure from irate customers, the Coca-Cola Co. said it would
resume selling old-formula Coke, while continuing to sell
New Coke.

Police spokesman Jens Berger said
Tuesday the 34-year-old was intoxicated, but it wasnt clear why he went for

Neighbors alerted police overnight

Berger says after telling police he

he said all he wanted to do was sleep

service than others: dating coaching


for introverted men.
Sarah Jones, a 29-year-old Mountain
Brook, Alabama, native who now lives
in San Francisco, founded Introverted
Alpha in 2013. She has coached more
than 30 clients - mostly in their late
20s or early 30s - on how to effectively
date and connect with women.
What we do is work with men, sometimes shy, sometimes not, when it
comes to dating and interaction,
Jones said. We show them what works
for them, and then tell them how to use
it. We show guys who are more reserved
that the qualities they have are rare, and
there are many people out there who are
really attracted to that.
The idea to start the company came
from multiple sources. Jones graduated
from Auburn in 2007 with an art degree
and did not know exactly what she
wanted to do for a living.
She often posted life advice on her art
blog, and through that outlet, multiple
people expressed their appreciation for
her motivational skills. She decided to
move to Los Angeles, where she
enrolled in life coaching courses.
After taking the life coaching courses, she decided to move to San
Francisco and start her company.
Ive always been interested in dating
and attraction, Jones said. I found it
really easy to meet and connect with
more reserved men. I know there are
many, many women out there who
desire those kind of men, and I knew I
found a niche.

Online learning for jailed youth to expand


DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

The San Mateo Office of Education is


working to expand online learning for
incarcerated youth in court schools, according to a response letter to the San Mateo
County Civil Grand Jury.
The grand jury investigated services for
jailed youth and concluded the Office of
Education should ensure that credits obtained
by juveniles in the program should be counted toward graduation and that online education should be a greater priority.
The report, Is the San Mateo County
Office of Education adequately educating its
incarcerated
youth?
was
released
Wednesday and recommends that more collaboration is needed between the Office of
Education, the Probation Department and
Behavioral Health and Recovery Services to
develop a more comprehensive transition
plan to ensure contact is made with a students family and school before the student
is released from detention.
The report also expresses concern about

Burlingame to hold
meeting for rent issues
In an effort to combat the constantly
increasing cost of living in Burlingame,
officials are considering ways to make the
city more affordable for residents who rent.
Burlingame officials will team with San
Mateo County Supervisor Dave Pine to host
a meeting Monday, July 13, discussing
options for helping renters. The hour-long
meeting will begin at 5:45 p. m. , in
Burlingame City Hall.

the process by which students transition
back into the community.
The county Office of Education agrees that
students should be placed in school as
quickly as possible after their release and
will continue to work with Probation,
Behavioral Health, partner school districts
and parents to ensure that this process happens in a timely and effective manner.
All the key stakeholders are working
very hard to develop a more effective system to support students as they transition
back to their home schools, Associate
Superintendent of Student Services Nancy
Magee wrote in a statement. We anticipate
a more comprehensive process will be in
place soon.

from Mayor Terry Nagel.

connectivity has been a challenge because


of the rural settings in which youth are
housed.
There are challenges specific to educating incarcerated youth, including the length
of incarceration and varying academic
skills, and online programs provide a terrific way for students to be more self-directed
in their learning, Magee wrote in the
response letter.
Access to these programs requires a high
level of connectivity, which has historically been a challenge for more rural locations,
such as Camp Glenwood. However, the
Office of Education recently received a
Broadband Infrastructure Improvement
Grant (BIIG), which will provide more rapid
and reliable connectivity for students at
Camp Glenwood, where boys are housed in
La Honda.

to developers who are building new homes
in Burlingame, which would go toward subsidizing the construction of new affordable
units, according to the report.
There could also be value in hiring a mediation service, such as the Peninsula
Conflict Resolution Center, to help resolve
disputes between landlords and tenants,
according to the report.
These issues, and more, will be discussed
during the upcoming study session, in an
attempt to resolve some of the issues facing
the future of Burlingame, said Nagel.

From tot rock to opera


Redwood Citys Courthouse Square
has something for everyone Sunday
By Jeanita Lyman
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

Sundays at Redwood Citys courthouse


square will be filled with family friendly
musical performances in the coming weeks.
This Sunday, July 12, the third annual
Kidchella will kick off with Alison Faith
Levys Big Time Tot Rock, and Opera San
Jose will take the stage later in the day as
part of Redwood Citys classical music
series.
Levy has performed at Kidchella every
year and looks forward to it as her final big
gig after a busy summer of performing and
promoting her new album The Start of
Things.
Kidchella is my last concert before I take
a long break, Levy said.
Levy started as a jazz, rock and alternative
musician and was inspired to start playing
childrens music 10 years ago when her son
was a toddler. She noted that she enjoys her
performances, and Kidchella in particular,
for the opportunity to connect with a young
audience now that her son and original muse
is a teenager.
Although Levys music and Kidchella
itself are geared toward young children, she
has a strong musical background and aims to
make her shows appealing to all ages.
I like to make sure that the songs are
good enough on a musical level for adults to
get it, she said.
In the evening, Opera San Jose will offer a
preview of their upcoming 2015-16 season
with selections from Bizets Carmen,
Mozarts The Marriage of Figaro, Previns
A Streetcar Named Desire and Puccinis
Tosca.
Opera San Jose Soprano Isabella Ivy has
been living out her childhood dream since
joining the company last year in her first
professional residency.
I finally got to do what I wanted to since
I was 4 years old, Ivy said.
At age 4, Ivy first discovered her passion
for opera when she heard the Queen of the
Night aria from Mozarts The Magic Flute.

Allison Faith Levys Big Time Tot Rock


members Andrew Griffin, Alison Faith Levy,
John Moremen, Karla Kane and Khoi Huynh
at the Mountain View Public Library on June
30, 2015.
In her first season at Opera San Jose, she
performed the aria, which received warm
reviews from critics. On Sunday and in the
upcoming season, she looks forward to performing works from Carmen.
Opera San Jose has risen from humble origins into a full-fledged, professional opera
company since beginning in a tiny theater
that held 529 people. Since then, the company has cemented itself as solidly professional, performing four full-length operas
per season at San Joses California Theatre
and a host of community events.
Opera San Jose General Director Larry
Hancock notes that performing outdoors in
a public setting can be different from a structured theater environment, but that the more
casual atmosphere is refreshing, with children often coming up to the stage to dance.
A lot of folks come to the outdoor
shows, Hancock said. Normally these outdoor things have people bringing their picnic baskets.
Allison Faith Levys Big Time Tot Rock
will perform at Kidchella from 11 a.m. to 1
p.m. in Redwood Citys courthouse square,
where Opera San Jose will perform at 6 p.m.

California governor to
meet with pope on climate change
SACRAMENTO California Gov. Jerry
Brown announced Thursday that he will travel to Vatican City later
this month to discuss climate change and modern
slavery with dignitaries
including Pope Francis as
the governor seeks to
burnish his legacy as a
climate change activist.
Brown, a former Jesuit
seminarian, plans to
Jerry Brown attend a two-day event
starting July 21 hosted by the Pontifical
Academies of Sciences and Social Sciences.
The focus is on two issues highlighted in
the popes recent teaching document, called
an encyclical, in which he chastised international lawmakers for failing to adopt
effective, long-term policies that would
protect the environment and help those who
suffer most from global warming.
In the spirit of the popes encyclical,
this unprecedented gathering of global leaders is a wake-up call to face up to the common threats of climate change and human
exploitation, Brown said in a statement.
This is about the future of humanity and
how we as human beings live and treat one
another and the natural world around us.
It comes on the heels of his address this
week to the Climate Summit of the Americas
in Toronto, Canada, where he warned that
the world is on a collision course with fossil
fuels, and is part of a broader effort by
Brown in his final term as governor to be
lead on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Around the state


A Brown-sponsored bill pending in the
state Legislature would set what the administration calls the most aggressive carbon
reduction benchmark in North America.
California aims to boost statewide renewable electricity use to 50 percent, have drivers use half as much gasoline and make
buildings twice as efficient under the proposal.

Senate approves high


school poll workers, election bill
SACRAMENTO California lawmakers
have approved a pair of bills aimed at
expanding the eligibility
of poll workers and saving election costs when
theres only one candidate
on the ballot.
The state Senate on
Thursday passed a measure by Assemblyman
Kevin Mullin, D-South
Kevin Mullin San Francisco. It would
allow high school students who are legal permanent residents to
serve as poll workers in California elections. The state already allows adult legal
residents to work precincts.
AB554 heads to the governor on a 28-11
vote.
Senators also advanced a bill by
Republican Sen. Sharon Runner of
Lancaster to allow the governor to cancel a
special primary election and declare a candidate elected if there is only one qualified person on the ballot.

Plea by Jefferson Davis descendant spurs S.C. flag vote

House scraps vote on


Confederate flag in federal cemeteries

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

COLUMBIA, S. C. An impassioned plea by a descendant of the


Confederate president seemed to swing
momentum as South Carolina legislators debated whether to remove the
rebel battle flag from the Statehouse
grounds.
Republicans offered dozens of
amendments during the 14-hour
debate, and even one would have
delayed the flags removal. Many
spoke of Southern heritage and cited
family connections to Confederate
soldiers.
Rep. Jenny Horne, a 42-year-old
white Republican lawyer, then took
the microphone to scold her colleagues.
I have heard enough about heritage, Horne said, her tearful voice
rising to a shout. I am a descendant of
Jefferson Davis, OK? But that does not
matter. Its not about Jenny Horne. Its
about the people of South Carolina
who have demanded that this symbol
of hate come off of the Statehouse
grounds.
The debate seemed to turn after that.
By early Thursday, representatives
approved the same bill that already
passed the Senate, enabling Gov.
Nikki Haleys office to announce that
the flag would come down on Friday.

benefits were already available to samesex couples, following a 2013 Supreme
Court ruling that struck down the federal ban on gay marriage. However, some
Social Security and veterans benefits
for spouses were still denied to these
couples if they lived in states that did
not recognize their marriages.
I am proud to announce that the critical programs for veterans and elderly
and disabled Americans, which previ-

ously could not give effect to the marriages of couples living in states that
did not recognize those marriages, will
now provide federal recognition for all
marriages nationwide, Lynch said in a
statement. The agencies are currently
working towards providing guidance to
implement this change in law.
The Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision last month that the Constitution
provides a right to same-sex marriage.
Before the ruling, there were 13 states
that did not recognize same-sex marriages.

WASHINGTON The Republican-controlled House


scrapped a vote on permitting the Confederate flag at Park
Service-run cemeteries on Thursday, a retreat under fire
that only escalated a ferocious attack by Democrats complaining the banner celebrates a murderous, racist past.
What exactly is the tradition of the Confederate battle
flag that were supporting? Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y.
demanded as racial political tensions flared ironically
enough, on the day the same banner was losing its place
of honor on the grounds outside the South Carolina
Capitol.
Is it slavery, rape, kidnap, treason, genocide or all of
the above? he asked.
No Republican rose to respond, although some officials
privately charged that Democrats had falsely accused GOP
lawmakers of racism. They noted the proposal would
merely have written Obama administration policy into
law.
Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, referring to the imminent removal of the flag in South Carolina, said it was
time for adults here in Congress to actually sit down and
have a conversation about how to address the issue.

Pope asks pardon for churchs

SANTA CRUZ, Bolivia Pope Francis


apologized Thursday for the sins, offenses and
crimes committed by the Catholic Church
against indigenous peoples during the colonial-era conquest of the Americas, delivering a
powerful mea culpa on the part of the church in
the climactic highlight of his South American

Bolivias first-ever indigenous president, Evo

Water management
The Modesto Bee

.S. Bureau of Reclamation


ofcials, who operate the
Central Valley Project, relied
on a faulty gauge in April and overestimated the amount of cold water
behind Shasta Dam.
U.S. Fish & Wildlife biologists
insisted that twin pulses totaling
35,000 acre-feet enough for
12,000 acres of almonds or to supply
90,000 homes with water for a year
be sent down the Stanislaus River in
April to push juvenile Chinook
salmon toward the sea. But no
Chinook salmon went with that
water, according to a report from
FishBio, which monitors our regions
rivers.
The release of so much water from
New Melones was faulty judgment.
The Shasta error was based on faulty
equipment. Neither instills a great
deal of condence in those attempting
to manage our water system through a
time of extreme drought.
The Shasta mistake is cascading
through the entire water system.
Federal and state ofcials are compensating for the instrument calibration
error by drastically reducing water
being released from Shasta into the
Sacramento River. Scientists say they
must hold onto whats left of the cold
water in Californias largest reservoir
until the fall to be used in a pulse ow
to entice spawning salmon up the
river.
But by cutting Shastas releases,

Other voices
downstream water system operators
are being forced to release more from
Lake Oroville and Folsom Lake.
Those releases protect crops and water
destined for Southern California by
preventing salt water incursion into
the Delta. By the end of this summer,
Sacramentos Folsom reservoir, about
the size of Lake McClure, is expected
to fall to 120,000 acre-feet well
below last years historic low.
Oroville, which can hold 3.5 million
acre-feet, will be at a quarter of capacity.
Meanwhile, to the south, the 2,500
landowners in the San Joaquin River
Exchange Contractors Water
Authority have fallowed more land
this year than ever before 40,000
acres. The authority is made up of four
irrigation districts encompassing
240,000 acres in Fresno, Madera,
Merced and Stanislaus counties. They
planted crops based on Bureau of
Reclamation commitments that
theyd get 350,000 acre-feet this
year, or 40 percent of what would be a
full allocation.
July is when the need to irrigate is
greatest. But water system operators
cannot transport water south if they
hope to preserve what remains of the
Delta ecosystem. That leaves farmers
who planted annual crops with a
choice: pump more groundwater, or
let crops shrivel.
Farmers can lose a crop of tomatoes

or alfalfa and rebound next season.


But with the cost of water having
risen steadily over the past decade,
many have switched to permanent
crops like almonds to recoup those
added costs.
In 2010, the San Joaquin River
authority had 23,962 acres planted in
fruit, nuts and vines. By 2014, that
number was up to 45,000 acres primarily almonds, walnuts, pistachios
and pomegranates, said executive
director Steve Chedester. Without
CVP water, growers will tap groundwater to save their trees. That means
more drilling, more costs, more
potential subsidence.
This is leading many people
especially non-farmers to call for
wholesale revision of the states water
laws.
Before tossing aside 230 years of
laws, rules and court decisions, it
must be recognized that small farmers
are at a horrible disadvantage when
competing for water against larger,
more well-funded entities. It also must
be recognized that the best soils frequently have the most long-standing
water rights, and to divorce the water
from those soils will not only ruin
family farms, but result in a waste of
one of the states great assets.
In this drought, water managers
have no room for faulty equipment or
faulty judgment. Dont compound the
mistake with a hasty revision of our
water laws.

Restoring
democracy in Belmont
Editor,
I write to applaud Michael ONeills
guest perspective in the July 6 edition of the Daily Journal Belmont at
a crossroads alerting the public of
the recent unwelcome revisions of
the Belmont zoning codes. As a 40plus year resident of this town, I
learned of the proposed changes only
after they had been enacted. The beauty of Belmont is that it is relatively
quiet and the local schools are excellent. Those aspects of civic life are
priceless. Sometimes small is not
only good, it is better.

Councilman Grocott
takes on lymphoma

round Memorial Day, San Carlos Councilman


Matt Grocott was having coffee at Plantation
Coffee Roastery on Laurel Street like he typically does when he passed out. He had been feeling a little off prior but chalked it up to getting older. He is a
young 56.
He went to the hospital for some tests. Initially, he
was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma, which is
known to be easier to treat than non-Hodgkins lymphoma. But more tests at Stanford Medical Center
revealed that is was, in fact, the latter. He found that out
about two weeks ago.
This week, he is beginning the first of six rounds
of chemotherapy and then
he will have stem cell treatment after that around
October.
In some instances, people
go through chemotherapy
then wait for the results of
the treatment before starting stem cell treatment, but
Grocott said he decided to be
aggressive with the treatment. For those who dont
know, lymphoma is cancer
of the lymphatic system.
A former wrestler who remains active, Grocott said the
disease has limited his ability to do as much as he normally does. There are some side effects with swelling of
nerves which causes discomfort in the arms thats similar to aches that accompany the flu. For that reason, he
said hes somewhat looking forward to the treatment
because it is accompanied by a steroid that helps with
the nerve swelling.
Grocott said he will be able to continue his work on
the council and his day job as an architect, but he is definitely feeling the effects of the disease. In the meantime, he is planning on going to the opening ceremony
of the Relay for Life fundraiser at Carlmont High School
July 18. When asked if he wanted people to know about
his situation, Grocott said sure, then later laughed and
said, Im not shy about it at all. Now Im part of the
team.
And on this one, its a team for which I am rooting.
***
Caltrain is definitely under pressure. Not only is its
ridership at an all-time high, there is little indication
that is letting up any time soon. Its electrification project is slated to improve efficiency and squeeze out a little more capacity, yet it is also being barraged by bicyclists seeking more space on its trains.
Bicycling to and from Caltrain makes a lot of sense.
You eliminate the last-mile problem in that riders
already have a built in way to get to their destinations
from the train stations and eliminates the need for shuttles, but the bikes take up a lot of space on the trains.
Its also good for the environment, riders health, all
that.
Trying to squeeze in as many riders as possible is a
goal, and now Caltrain officials are contemplating the
elimination of restrooms on the trains. One of things
that makes Caltrain nice is that it has restrooms. For
those traveling far distances, or the old and those with
young children, not having a restroom is a true inconvenience. While one can say BART doesnt have restrooms, first of all, do you really want to lower the bar?
Second, BART has delays but not like the kind that
Caltrain has when there are incidents on its tracks. And
third, just keep the restrooms! Theyre nice, convenient
and part of what makes Caltrain Caltrain.
The pressure to squeeze capacity is real, but it should
not come at the expense of basics like restrooms.
***
A kind reader pointed out a mistake in my column last
week about the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta.
In it, I referred to the United States as the first democracy, which, of course, is not the case. It is the first true
representative democracy, though the ancient Greeks
started a form of it centuries prior. Either way, forms of
democracies rather than monarchies took hold
across the world in the wake of the United States
Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the
Constitution going into effect in 1789.

Greek government offers series


of sweeping proposal to creditors
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ATHENS, Greece Greece finally met a


deadline that counted on Thursday and made a
series of sweeping proposals that its creditors needed by midnight to set off a mad rush
toward a weekend deal to stave off a financial
collapse of the nation.
The package met longstanding demands
by creditors to impose wide-ranging salestax hikes and cuts in state spending for pensions that the left-leaning Greek government had long resisted.
It raised hopes that Greece can get the rescue deal that will prevent a catastrophic exit
from the euro after key creditors said they
were open to discussing how to ease the
countrys debt load, a long-time sticking
point in their talks.

Europe and China are not expected to


do a huge amount of damage to the two
economies in the long run.
In the U.S., the Standard & Poors
500 index climbed 4.63 points, or
0.2 percent, to 2,051.31. The Dow
Jones industrial average gained
33. 20 points, or 0. 2 percent, to
17, 548. 62. The Nasdaq composite
rose 12.64 points, or 0.3 percent, to
4,922.40.
Stocks surged at the open, pushing
the S&P 500 index nearly 30 points in
early trading. Those gains faded
throughout the day, in part because the
early euphoria over the Chinese stock
market proved short-lived, said Randy
Frederick, a managing director at the
Schwab Center for Financial Research.
If people arent allowed to sell, of
course (the markets) not going to go
down, said Frederick. Until you get
back to the point where the market is
free, theres open trading, and its not
going down, then Id say its stabilized.
The Shanghai Composite surged 5.8
percent but the index is still down 27
percent in the last month. Hong
Kongs Hang Seng climbed 3.7 percent.
Among the flurry of measures
announced recently by the Chinese
government, was an order to state

American brings it home Ken Stabler
San Mateo American wins first District 52 Majors title since 1970
dead at 69
By Terry Bernal

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

PALO ALTO San Mateo American is a


team on a mission. And they played like it
in Thursdays District 52 Majors
Tournament championship game at
Middlefield Park.
American captured their first District 52
title since 1970 in style with a 10-0
mercy-rule win over Belmont-Redwood
Shores, riding the all-around performance
by Petey Halpin.
Halpin got his team on the board in the
first inning with an RBI double. But it was
on the mound where he shined, falling one
out shy of a no-hitter. Ultimately he
worked four shutout innings, striking out
six. He set down the first seven batters he
faced and took a no-no into the fourth
until Nick Rogers broke it up with a twoout single.
He was focused today, San Mateo
American manager P.J. Jeremiah said.
Thats what he can do when hes on. (It
was) the whole team, but hes a big part of
it.
Ryan Victor was the man of the hour,
though, as he delivered the decisive hit in
the bottom of the fourth.
With American up 9-0 and on the verge
of scoring the mercy-rule walk-off, Victor
was inserted as a pinch hitter. Its a role to
which hes fast grown accustomed for the
All-Star squad, after serving as the cleanup
hitter for his regular-season Orioles team
all year. Victor delivered, shooting a long
RBI single to the left-center wall to score
Justis Daily with the game-winner.
It was quite the way to cap a title run in
which the appropriately named Victor
believed all along.
I did think we were going to win the
championship, Victor said. I didnt
know I was going to have the winning
hit. But I had a good feeling about us.
Victors feeling turned out to be right on
the money. American swept through the
winners bracket by outscoring opponents 65-11. Four of their five tournament
wins were via mercy-rule.

A Snake wouldnt seem to offer much help on


a football field.
Unless that snake was named Stabler.
Ken Stabler, who led the Oakland Raiders to a
Super Bowl victory and was the NFLs Most
Valuable Player in 1974, has died as a result of
complications from colon cancer. He was 69.
His family announced his death on Stablers
Facebook page Thursday. The statement said
Stabler passed peacefully on Wednesday while
surrounded by family, including his three daughters and longtime partner, who wasnt named.
Raiders owner Mark Davis
said the team, which was
informed by the family, was
deeply saddened by the
passing of the great Ken
Stabler.
He was a cherished member of the Raider family and
personified what it means
to be a Raider, Davis said
Ken Stabler in a statement. He wore the
silver and black with pride
and poise and will continue to live in the hearts
of Raider fans everywhere. Our sincerest
thoughts and prayers go out to Kennys family.
The familys statement said he was diagnosed
with Stage 4 colon cancer in February.
Stablers coach with the Raiders, John
Madden, said his former quarterback was cool
under pressure.
Ive often said, if I had one drive to win a
game to this day, and I had a quarterback to pick,
I would pick Kenny, Madden said. Snake was a
lot cooler than I was. He was a perfect quarterback and a perfect Raider. When you think about
the Raiders you think about Ken Stabler.
Stabler was a four-time Pro Bowl selection
with the Raiders, leading the franchise to consistent success during the 1970s, including a
32-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in
the 1977 Super Bowl.

Hillsborough takes 9-10 district title


By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Dan Gilmartin, manager of the


Hillsborough 9-10-year-old All-Star team,
had a plan at the beginning of the District
52 tournament: to be the visiting team as
often as possible.
The way Hillsborough has swung the bat,
it was a smart move. Hillsborough scored
double-digit runs in three games on its way
to the 9-10 championship game against

Pacifica American at Ortega School in


Pacifica Thursday evening.
While Hillsborough failed to score 10
runs for the first time in the tournament, it
had more than enough to beat Pacifica
American 7-1.
Its Hillsboroughs first 9-10 district title
since 2010. It now advances to the Section
3 tournament in Livermore beginning next
week.
It was our strategy to be visitors,
Gilmartin said. We wanted to bat first.

That strategy paid off in spades Thursday


as Hillsborough jumped on Pacifica with
four runs in the top of the first. While the
Pacifica pitching stabilized, with three
relievers combining to allow three runs
over the final five innings, the damage was
done.
Gus Parker led off the game with a walk
and went to third on a Seamus Gilmartin
bloop down the right-field line. Casey
Platkin got Hillsborough on the board
when he reached on an error and Parker scor-

ing on the play. Following a popout, Dylan


Kall walked and Whitaker Tollman hit into a
fielders choice to load the bases. Matthew
Dougherty Jr. came up and on the first pitch
hammered it into the left-center field gap to
clear the bases and give Hillsborough a 4-0
lead.
That was a tough way to start, said
Pacifica manager Nate Uter. We were just a
little shaky.
After that, it was a lot of Dean Moss on

Close calls go against


As in 6-2 loss to Yanks

Fosse still effected by


1970 All-Star collision

By Ronald Blum

OAKLAND Ray Fosses body still aches,


45 years later.
He never did fully recover physically from
one of the most infamous plays in All-Star
Game history, when Pete Rose bulled him over
in 1970 to score the winning run in the 12th
inning at Riverfront Stadium.
With the game back in Cincinnati on Tuesday,
Fosse is reminded again of that moment. Over
and over. Not that he needs
another look.
As if it happened yesterday, said Fosse, a
Cleveland catcher at the
time and now an Oakland
broadcaster. As much as
its shown, I dont have to
see it on TV as a replay to
know what happened. Its
Ray Fosse
fresh.
That night changed his career.
It seems to be a play that people kind of
relate to, that will somehow be kind of an opener, an icebreaker, he said. Its like, Oh, youre
the guy.
To this day, he introduces himself to As players as just Ray Fosse, one of the broadcasters.
Later, they tend to figure it out.
Fosse has pain and arthritis, endured five knee
surgeries has two bum shoulders he never had
fixed and a stiff neck.
In fairness, he knows a lot of that is a result of
the rigors of being a catcher.
My body hurts. My shoulder still hurts, he
said. There was not anybody at the time to say,
Dont play. I continued. Thats something that
I take with a lot of pride.
Fosse recalls it being 160 degrees on the artificial turf that night in Ohio, when the AL blew
a 4-1, ninth-inning lead and lost 5-4 on Roses
run. Rose says Fosse left him no room to slide
into home on the decisive play.
Hes the one blocking the plate without the
ball, Rose said on Thursday. Im the one who
missed three games with an injury to my knee.
He played nine more years after that.
Two days after the All-Star Game, Fosse
caught nine innings in a win at Kansas City. He
couldnt lift his arm above his head.
They didnt have the technology, I didnt see
any of it, as far as X-rays, no MRI, not really
anything, Fosse recalled in May at the Oakland
Coliseum.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Cole Figueroa hit a onehopper just over the inside corner of rst
base that umpires called fair. Two pitches
later, Jacoby Ellsbury pulled another
changeup from Jesse Chavez over the very
same spot for a tiebreaking two-run single.
I thought it was foul. The rst one I
thought for sure, Oakland manager Bob
Melvin said after Thursdays 6-2 loss to the
New York Yankees, which left the Athletics
an AL-worst 39-49.
Chavez (4-9) walked Stephen Drew with
one out in the fourth and the score tied at 2.
Figueroas grounder curled and hit off the
right knee of leaping umpire John Tumpane
and into right eld for a double.
First baseman Ike Davis held out his arms,
maintaining the ball was foul, and Melvin
came out to discuss the call with umpires.
Because the ball landed in front of the
umpire, the play was not subject to video
review. When umps conferenced, they
upheld plate umpire Bill Welkes original
call.
It just looked foul from my point of view
because it hit him and he was in foul territory and he was right behind the bag, Davis
said. So I didnt understand how it could be
fair.
But Davis said after viewing a replay, he
couldnt tell.
Two pitches later, it was much the same
when Ellsburys grounder went down the
right-eld line.
Our angle is tough, and obviously the
ball gets there in a hurry, and when a lefty
hooks it theres some angle to it, Melvin
said, but I thought it was foul.

Masahiro Tanaka (5-3) allowed two hits


over 7 2-3 innings, and Chasen Shreve and
Adam Warren completed the three-hitter,
which sent the As to their eighth loss in 13
games.
Oakland got all its runs in the second,
when Josh Reddick reached on catchers
interference by Brian McCann, and Billy
Butler and Mark Canha hit RBI doubles.
Tanaka retired his nal 13 batters and 18
of his last 19, allowing Butler to reach on a
wild pitch striking out in the fourth.
We had some decent swings on him
early, Melvin said. His split was probably
up a little bit more early in the game. He
started using all his pitches a little bit
later.
Chavez gave up four runs and seven hits in
ve innings, falling behind on Brett
Gardners rst-inning homer. He had been 40 against the Yankees but set his season
high for losses after dropping to 0-3 with a
5.82 ERA is in his last three starts.
This is that stretch for me, personally. It
happens every year, Chavez said. Its just
location, where early on the year those
pitches were getting swung at and on to the
ground and now theyre getting taken for
balls and I have to ght back into the
count.
Oakland shortstop Marcus Semien made a
high throw on Ellsburys two-out grounder
in the eighth, allowing two runs to score.
Semien has 28 errors eight more than any
other major leaguer this season including
six in his last 11 games.
Condence-wise, sometimes you get on
a roll and you start feeling condent,
Melvin said. If you make an error, it gets
away from you a little bit as far as condence goes.

time, nobody was going to tell me I couldnt
play. Even though I was hurt and probably
shouldnt have played, there was no injury that
actually showed. It just was internal. As it turned
out it was a fractured, separated shoulder. Things
were different then.
Fosse never had the ball, never touched the
ball when Rose came plowing into him at the
plate.
Now 68, Fosse offered his support after
Giants catcher Buster Posey got run over by the
Marlins Scott Cousins in May 2011, which in
part led Major League Baseball to implement a
new rule last season banning such home-plate
hits.
Fosse spent parts of 12 seasons in the
majors. He made the All-Star team again in
1971, yet his best year was already behind him.
And, really, there was a lot to enjoy in that
1970 showcase.
Hall of Famers were everywhere. The NL had
Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente
and Johnny Bench, the AL brought Frank
Robinson, Carl Yastrzemski, Catfish Hunter
and Harmon Killebrew.
Fosse had a single, scored a run and drove in
one. Like Rose, he entered in the fifth inning as
a substitute.
All most fans recall was that bruising end.
Thats something people will continue to
talk about, whether they were alive at the time or
watched the video and see the result, Fosse
said.

Rose open to almost anything

CINCINNATI Hits king Pete Rose said


hes open to almost anything that
Commissioner Rob Manfred might have in
mind when they discuss his lifetime ban for
betting on baseball.
The former Cincinnati Reds player and
manager hopes that he can informally meet
Manfred who took
over for Bud Selig in
January when the two
are in town next week for
the All-Star Game at Great
American Ball Park. Rose
said theyll meet again at
some point later on to
discuss his longstanding
application for reinstatePete Rose
ment.
Rose, who is now an
analyst for Fox Sports, said on a conference
call Thursday that hes elated to have a
chance to plead his case with Manfred.
When youre in my situation, youre
open to almost anything, Rose said. Im
just happy hes going to review my status,
and well go from there.
Rose was banned in 1989, four years after
he set baseballs hits record. After denying
for years that he bet on baseball, he
acknowledged doing so in his most recent
autobiography in 2004. The 74-year-old
Rose isnt eligible to be elected to baseballs Hall of Fame.
Former Commissioner Bud Selig didnt

act upon Roses petition for reinstatement


before retiring in January. Rose said hes
uncertain what to expect from the new commissioner.
I dont know if I have a better chance or
not, he said. When you say better chance
just having him review my status, Im
happy with. Im looking forward to sitting
down one-on-one with Mr. Manfred and discussing the situation, I really am.
Manfred has given Rose permission to go
on the field before the All-Star Game on
Tuesday to be honored as part of Major
League Baseballs Franchise Four promotion. Fans got to choose four players to represent each team.
Rose was chosen along with Reds Hall of
Famers Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan and
Barry Larkin. Hes unsure whats involved
in the on-field ceremonies.
Baseball has not told me as of yet, Rose
said. Just to be able to come out from
behind home plate onto the field will be a
big honor for me.
Rose attends several Reds games in his
hometown each season, sitting in the seats.
Hes gone on the field at Great American one
time, wearing a No. 14 Rose jersey as he
stomped on first base on Sept. 11, 2010,
the 25th anniversary of his record-setting
hit No. 4,192. Selig gave permission for
that on-field appearance.
Rose is part of Foxs broadcasting team
for the All-Star Game. Itll be the first AllStar game hes attended since his lifetime
ban.

Serena Slam in sight


By Howard Fendrich
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON Her game in high gear,


history in the offing, Serena Williams
is perfectly content to let everyone
else talk about what a victory in the
Wimbledon final would mean.
A Serena Slam of four consecutive
major titles. The third leg of a calendar-year Grand Slam. A 21st major singles trophy, one short of the Open-era
record.
For now, the No. 1-seeded Williams
is keeping her thoughts to herself,
declaring she wont entertain questions about those topics, even after
easily dismissing No. 4 Maria
Sharapova 6-2, 6-4 in the semifinals
at the All England Club on Thursday to
close in on the milestones.
I dont want the pressure of that,
and Im not thinking of that. When
you talk about it every time, you cant
help but think about it, Williams
said. Its been OK just to free my
brain from that.
Whatever works. Clearly, Williams
is doing plenty right at the moment.
Particularly against Sharapova, whom
shes beaten 17 times in a row.
Williams hit 13 aces, reaching 123
mph. Fewer than half her serves were
put in play. She never faced a break
point, and was pushed to deuce just
once on her serve. She had a 29-9 edge
in winners.

In sum, Williams made Sharapova

is.
Nothing to do with Sharapova,
said Williams coach, Patrick
Mouratoglou. She does this to most
of the top 10 players. Its true. Shes

If you want to win a Grand Slam,
when you dream, you say, I want
Serena in the final, the 21-year-old
Muguruza said. Shes like one of the
best players in all these years.
One of?
Five women have won four consecutive Grand Slam tournaments and
Williams already is among that group,
having done it from 2002-03. Only
three have pulled off a true Grand Slam,
winning all four majors in a single season; Steffi Graf was the last, in 1988.
If Williams can beat Muguruza, the
33-year-old American would head to
the U.S. Open in August with a shot at
that feat.
Under a cloudless sky at Centre Court

Williams twice in 2004, including in
the Wimbledon final and hasnt

points that lasted at least six strokes
ended with errors by Sharapova. If she

with Williams once the ball was in

LE HAVRE, France The yellow jersey seems to be an unlucky charm at


this Tour de France.
German rider Tony Martin started
Thursdays sixth stage in the lead and
ended it in the hospital after breaking
his collarbone in a crash that he caused
near the finish line. He became the
second race leader to pull out of the
race, after Swiss rider Fabian
Cancellara fractured two vertebrae in
his lower back on Monday.
The collarbone is in lots of pieces,
so it was a major impact, Martins
Etixx Quick-Step team doctor Helge
Riepenhof said. One of the pieces
came through the skin, which means
its an open fracture.
The crash also dragged down defending champion Vincenzo Nibali and fellow Tour contender Nairo Quintana, but
they escaped with cuts and bruises.
Czech rider Zdenek Stybar rode away
amid the chaos to clinch his first Tour
stage win.
While neither Martin nor Cancellara
was a contender for the overall victory,
the injuries they sustained highlight
how tough this Tour has been already
and the battered riders havent even
reached the mountains yet.

With Martin out, 2013 Tour champion Chris Froome moves into the overall lead. The Briton may elect not to
wear the yellow jersey on Friday a
sign of respect toward Martin under
cyclings etiquette guidelines.
And he may be better off without it.
Martin, his yellow jersey shining,
moved near the front during the final
kilometers in order to put teammate
Mark Cavendish in a good position to
attack.
He lost control of his bike with
about 900 meters to go. It swerved to
the right, clipped another bike and
then brought down some eight other
riders.
Moments later, he was sitting
against a railing, staring into space as
the dazed riders looked around for their
bikes.
Unable to hold his handlebar, with
his left arm in a sling position, Martin
rolled slowly over the line with several teammates alongside him.
Two-time Tour champion Alberto
Contador of Spain and Froome have
escaped all the crashes although the
British rider almost fell when Nibalis
bike swerved into his.

STABLER
Continued from page 11
Stabler first showed his professional chops in the game best
known for the Immaculate Reception. Mostly forgotten was his
replacing starter Daryle Lamonica and leading the Raiders to what
seemed to be the winning touchdown in the fourth quarter until
Franco Harris spectacular catch and run won it for Pittsburgh.
Oakland lost two of its first three games in the next season,
1973, scoring no touchdowns with Lamonica behind center. After
a loss to archrival Kansas City, Madden gave Stabler a chance to
show what he could do in practice. Stabler did enough for Madden
to start him, and the Raiders beat the Cardinals, and then won four
straight games after that.
Stabler remained the starter for more than seven seasons,
allegedly studying the game plan by the light of a jukebox if
he studied it at all. He prided himself on being able to wing it, and
few quarterbacks did it better in the clutch.
But for all of his bravado, Stabler was not a wild thrower. He
was one of the most accurate passers of his time.
The bigger the situation, Madden said, the calmer he got.
Stablers favorite songs were playing when he died, from
Lynyrd Skynyrds Sweet Home Alabama to Van Morrisons
Leaves Falling Down, the family said. His brain and spinal cord
were donated to Boston Universitys Chronic Traumatic
Encephalopathy Center to support research into degenerative
brain disease among athletes, according to the family.
He was a kind, generous and unselfish man, never turning
down an autograph request or an opportunity to help someone in
need, the family said. A great quarterback, he was an even
greater father to his three girls, and grandfather to his two grand
snakes.
The Foley, Alabama, native threw for 27,938 career yards over
15 seasons, which also included stints with the Houston Oilers
and New Orleans Saints.
During his college career, Stabler led Alabama to an undefeated
1966 season and was chosen the Sugar Bowl MVP after a 34-7
rout of Nebraska. He also ran for a long touchdown on a rainsoaked field during the 1967 Iron Bowl to lead the Tide to a 7-3
win over Auburn.
Alabama coach Nick Saban got to know Stabler from golf tournaments and the ex-Raiders quarterbacks stint as an analyst on
Alabama radio broadcasts.
I think anyone who had the chance to get to know Kenny
would appreciate the great person he was and the pride he had for
the University of Alabama, Saban said in a statement. I have
had the chance to be around some of the best to ever play college
and pro football, and Kenny may have been one of the greatest
competitors to ever play the game.

a 7-0 lead. In the sixth, Daniel Geller, Jace Jeremiah and


Vaihola each contributed hits to the game-winning rally.
Vaihola was 3 for 3 with three RBIs in the game.

Shores played for San Mateo American three years ago
until his family moved to Belmont.
I just tried to get the ball in play and get on base to try and
score some runs, Rogers said of the fourth-inning single.
Belmont-Redwood Shores manager Ryan Flores said he was
pleased with his teams performance throughout the tourney.
After the game, they were upbeat, Flores said. They were
just being kids. But they fought hard to get to this point and
Im proud of them. They showed a lot of character.
With the District 52 title, San Mateo American advances to

Im pretty happy, P.J. Jeremiah said. But its get a days

We were lucky to get four-inning games like that to keep
our pitching in good shape, P.J. Jeremiah said.
Halpin was in exceptional shape Thursday after working
four-plus innings in Americans semifinal game Sunday, a 14-8
win over San Carlos American. But to Halpin, Thursdays gem
was just a day in the life of a burgeoning baseball superstar.
Id like to perform at the top of my game every single
game, Halpin said. I just looked at it as another Little
League game.
Americans offense followed suit, rallying for five runs in
the first inning and never looking back. They sent nine batters to the plate in the frame, sparked by their first three hitters doubling back-to-back-to-back.
Jace Jeremiah got the carousel moving with a two-bagger
into the right-field corner. Americans leadoff hitter said he
was contending with some nerves prior to the game, but his
older brother helped loosen him up just before the team took
infield practice.
In our pregame talk, we had a joke with my brother Josh,
Jace Jeremiah said. That kind of calmed me down.
Halpin followed with an RBI double up the left-center gap.
Then Daily capped the trifecta with an RBI shot up the rightcenter gap. Ronier Babiera and Gio Affrunti later delivered
RBI singles to give American a 5-0 lead.
Belmont-Redwood Shores starting pitcher Jasper Loo set
down the side in order in the second. But American had no intention of letting their opponents get back into the game. When
Belmont-Redwood Shores Daniel Awad led off the third inning
looking to break up the no-hitter, Americans center fielder
Terence Loville denied him by tracking down a sharp line drive
up the right-center gap with a tremendous diving catch.
Hes one of the best, Halpin said of his rangy center fielder.

the mound and defense for Hillsborough. While Pacifica
managed to get base runners all game long, Moss wiggled
out of trouble due in large part to his defense.
Moss pitched 4 2/3 strong innings, allowing one run six
hits. He got defensive help right away, however, to get out
of a first-inning jam. With two outs and Dylan Russell on
first, Gino Venturi cracked a double to right to put runners
on second and third. Ashton Jones followed and hit a hot
shot to Hillsborough second baseman Andrew Rocha, who
initially managed to only knock the ball down. He stayed
with it, however, and got Jones at first by half a step to end
the inning.
He never gave up and stuck with the play, Dan
Gilmartin said of Rocha.
In the bottom of the third inning, Hillsborough left
fielder Sam Goligoski made the play of the game. With
Pacifica having already scored once, it was looking to add
more with runners on first and second. Evann Smith came
up and singled to left. Goligoski fielded the ball and with

Pacifica American 10-11s earn title shot


In the District 52 10-11-year-old Tournament, Pacifica
American forced a winner-take-all showdown in the championship round with a 6-3 win over San Mateo National
Thursday at Portola Valleys Ford Field.
Drew Azzopardi Pacificas lone 10-year-old fired fourplus innings to earn the win. He also added a big blast at the
plate with a two-run home run in the second inning.
Pacifica took a 5-3 lead into the fifth, but National threatened
in the bottom the frame by loading the bases against reliever
Shamus Hawkins. Nationals Pablo Ossio nearly put his team
out front with a deep drive to left-center, but Pacifica center fielder Mikey Reyes raced to the fence to make a game-saving catch.
He ran into the fence and held onto the ball, Pacifica
American manager Ryan Gordon said. If that ball falls, they
probably [take the lead] right there. It was probably the
biggest play of the game.
Pacificas Connor Uter added an insurance run in the top of
the sixth with a solo home run.
With the win, San Mateo National and Pacifica American
meet Saturday for all the marbles in the 10-11s tourney. First
pitch at Ford Field is scheduled for 10 a.m.
the runner from second rounding third and heading home,
Goligoski threw a two-bounce strike to catcher Platkin,
who held for the out to end the inning.
That was a huge momentum change, for sure, Dan
Gilmartin said.
Hillsborough took that momentum to the plate in the
top of the fourth inning, getting the run back. Dylan Kall
hammered a ball off the fence in center field for a RBI double, with pinch runner Tollman scoring on the hit for a 51 Hillsborough lead.
Hillsborough then added two more runs in the top of the
fifth a RBI double from Parker which scored Rocha, and
a RBI single off the bat of Seamus Gilmartin which scored
Parker.
Seamus Gilmartin was 4 for 4 from the plate.
Pacifica scored its lone run in the third when Dylan Uter
walked, went to third on a Jordan Tosetti single and scored
on a Jones fielders choice.
We just expect to score runs, Nate Uter said. Moss
threw a great game.
Pacifica also had a web gem of its own in the top of the
seventh inning when right fielder Anthony Wierzba
gunned out a Hillsborough runner at first to end the frame.
It was a tough one. Its hard to win with one run, Nate
Uter said. [Hillsborough] just outplayed us today.

OAKLAND Draymond Green


has overcome the odds his entire
life, going from a chubby kid
from a small Michigan town to
Big Ten Player of the Year to NBA
champion.
The versatile forward has done it
all while living by the mantra his
mother, Mary Babers-Green,
instilled in him at an early age:
Men that dont work dont eat.
Green has put in the work and
now he can eat as well as he wants.
A week after reaching a verbal
agreement, Green signed his $82
million, five-year contract with the
Golden State Warriors on Thursday
to remain with the reigning champions.
Green thanked his family, friends
and the franchise at a news conference on the teams practice court,
which was lined with about 150
young campers and front-office
employees. His mother wiped away

tears while sitting in the front


row
with
Greens
girlfriend,
best
friend
and
agent.
It was the latest surreal scene
to play out for
Draymond
Green, who has
Green
become a basketball celebrity in the Bay Area
and beyond.
I never imagined walking
through the airport being a struggle. Or everywhere you go just
being a complete struggle. I never
imagined that for myself. In my
wildest dreams, I couldnt imagine
that, Green said. The respect that
you get from everyone after winning a championship, its been
incredible.
Green was a restricted free agent,
meaning the Warriors could have
matched any offer he received. But
Golden State always expected to

pay whatever salary he commanded, even if that meant dipping into


the leagues luxury tax which it
will almost surely do now.
The Warriors drafted Green 35th
overall in 2012 after passing on
the former Michigan State standout
with their first two selections. He
took over as the starting power forward this season after David Lee
injured his left hamstring in the
final preseason game.
Warriors general manager Bob
Myers called re-signing Green the
teams top priority this offseason.
He counts the versatile forward as a
core part of the franchises longterm future alongside MVP Stephen
Curry and All-Star guard Klay
Thompson.
Draymond, through his entire
life, whatever situation hes been
confronted by, hes won, Myers
said. It doesnt matter where he
was or what position he played.
His teams won. And thats not a
coincidence. We want to have as
many of those guys as we can.

Former 49er Ray McDonald facing several criminal charges


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Former


San Francisco 49er defensive tackle Ray McDonald was charged with
domestic violence and false
imprisonment in connection with
allegations he assaulted his exfiancee while she held their 2month-old child, prosecutors said

Thursday.
M c Do n a l d
was
also
charged
with
child endangerment and violating a court
order, the Santa
Clara County
Ray McDonald district attor-

neys office said. The false imprisonment charge is a felony while


the other counts are misdemeanors.
He was arraigned on Thursday
but did not enter a plea. He is due
back in court in August.
Calls to McDonalds attorney,
Steve Defilippis, were not immediately returned.

Prosecutors said police responded to a domestic disturbance at a


home around 4 a.m. on May 25 and
found McDonald had broken into
the womans bedroom and assaulted her while his driver tried to stop
him and she tried to get away.
McDonald cornered the woman
in a dining room and trapped her
there before she told investigators

he chased her into a bathroom and


repeatedly bumped her while trying to grab her cellphone, according to investigators. It continued
in the bedroom, where the woman
said McDonald jabbed at her head
with a finger and tried to pull her
off the bed. Part of the incident
was caught on cellphone video the
woman took.

Graltons story told in


elegant Jimmys Hall
By Lindsey Bahr
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Jimmy Gralton is not a name


youve likely heard before.
A modest Irish revolutionary,
Gralton has the dubious distinction of being the only
native to ever be deported
from Ireland. On top of leading a communist group in the
provincial county of Leitrim
in the 1930s, he incited fear in
the ruling classes by running
what they viewed as a particu-

larly mutinous establishment:


A dance hall.
The history books may have
yet to give his story a comprehensive treatment, but in
Jimmys Hall, director Ken
Loach and screenwriter Paul
Laverty attempt to create a
narrative inspired by the life
and times of this unique man
during a period when modernity was knocking violently
against the pillars of the establishment.
Its neither a biopic nor a his-

tory lesson, but the restrained


and elegant Jimmys Hall is
an evocative story of common
people finding hope in a life
with little, told with wit and
wistfulness.
Loachs film opens with
stock footage of New York at
the time where jazz, industry and skyscrapers abound in
a vibrant and changing world
before jumping across the
Atlantic to Leitrim, a bucolic
and backward farming town.
Some brief subtitles add con-

text to the 1932 Irish scene.


This is a people still reeling
from the Irish Civil War 10
years prior. Though the conflict has ended, the divisions
run deep as those on both
sides of the dispute attempt to
live in tenuous peace.

York. Hes there to help his
ailing mother (Aileen Henry)

MUSEUM GOTTA SEE UM


By Susan Cohn
DAILY JOURNAL SENIOR CORRESPONDENT

THE CANTOR ARTS CENTER AT STANFORD UNIVERSITY ACQUIRES EDWARD HOPPER OIL PAINTING. The Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University has
announced the major new acquisition of a painting by Edward
Hopper: New York Corner (Corner Saloon), 1913. One of
Hoppers early paintings, the oil on canvas was created when
Hopper was just 31 and still struggling to establish himself.
When it was first exhibited in New York shortly after it was
completed, the critics praised it as a perfect visualization of
a New York atmosphere and for its completeness of expression.
Edward Hopper is one of the greatest American artists of the
20th century. He was born in Nyack, New York, in 1882 and
died in Manhattan in 1967. His powerful and iconic images
of cityscapes, landscapes, seascapes and solitary figures
speak to the rugged individualism of American culture in both
its beauty and isolation. His impact on the imagination of
generations of artists, filmmakers and writers remains
strong.
Alexander Nemerov, the Carl and Marilynn Thoma
Provostial Professor in the Arts and Humanities at Stanford
University and the incoming chair of the Department of Art
and Art History, said: This great picture that we now have in
our collection gets singled out as a key perhaps even a first
painting he made in his representative style, the style that
would make him famous and so influential. It is remarkable
that here on campus we now have this painting that started it
all.
Connie Wolf, the John and Jill Freidenrich Director of the
Cantor Arts Center, said: It is an extraordinary painting and
allows us to deepen and strengthen our commitment to being
a unique resource for teaching and learning for students, faculty, artists and the broader community. With over 44,000
objects in our collection, we are focusing on acquiring key
works through gifts and purchase that will transform our connection to the academic life of the university. Our five-year
digitization and inventory project allows us to better understand the opportunities to build and strengthen the collection
and make strategic additions across the primary areas of collecting. This acquisition builds on the recent significant gifts
of works by Andy Warhol, Richard Diebenkorn and Jacob
Lawrence and also helps us create a stronger foundation to the
works now at the Anderson Collection at Stanford
University.
Hoppers New York Corner will go on view in late July in an
exhibition featuring other works in the museums permanent
collection that explores how this significant acquisition can
be a source of study and inquiry by examining the artists who
influenced Hopper, how Hopper has and continues to influence other artists, looking at America in 1913 when the work
was made, and positioning Hopper among his peers.
The Cantor Arts Center, located off Palm Drive at Museum
Way on the Stanford University campus, is open Wednesday
Sunday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., and Thursday until 8 p.m. Parking is
free after 4 p.m. weekdays and all day on weekends. All
exhibits are free. For more information call 723-4177 or visit

wonder whether to believe hes just
returned to lead a quiet life.
Its not until some local teens accost
him in the street that we begin to understand Jimmys provocative past. They beg
him to reopen the dance hall, having only
heard stories of the place.
The hall, we discover in a series of rosycolored flashbacks, was hand built by a
group of progressives as a community center for ideas. There, they taught lessons in
music, dance, singing, literature and
painting, they held parties, and they
basked in a safe respite from the clergy and
the law.
Violent threats forced the hall to close
and Jimmy Gralton to flee years ago. The
wounds are still raw, but he and his original crew, including lost love Oonagh
(Simone Kirby), decide to try it once more.
You dont need a priest telling his parish
to fear the Los Angeles-ization of their

Police said Wednesday they were investigating video that appears to show Ariana
Grande licking doughnuts at a shop in
Southern California. Earlier, Grande apologized for saying I hate America in the
same video.
Police in Lake Elsinore, where the doughnut shop is located, said they and Riverside
County public health officials were investigating the leaked video, which appeared to
show the 22-year-old singer and a man with
her maliciously lick the doughnuts.
Mayra Solis, 22, a cashier on duty at
Wolfee Donuts when Grande went into the
store, said the singer didnt purchase any of

the doughnuts she licked.


She was really rude,
Solis told the Associated
Press.
Earlier
Wednesday,
Grande said in a statement to the AP that shes
a proud American.
I am EXTREMELY
proud to be an American
Ariana Grande and Ive always made it
clear that I love my country. What I said in a private moment with my

Jesus Christ and Jimmy Graltons Hall to
know that this isnt going to end well. And
yet as things devolve, the story becomes
much more interesting.
The script allows all sides their own perspective in the debate, too. Instead of
making them evil caricatures, some of the
more fascinating intellectual debates are
between two priests, Father Sheridan (Jim
Norton) and Father Seamus (Andrew Scott).
Loach, who won the Palme dOr at
Cannes in 2006 for The Wind That Shakes
the Barley (which functions almost like a
companion piece to this film), has given
Jimmys Hall a truly timeless feel with
an easy, classical structure and aesthetic
and some truly moving performances from
Ward, Kirby and Norton in particular.
While this deeply romanticized and fictionalized account of a little-known underdog might not serve you in any trivia
capacities, its also a worthy and loving
story of humanity in the face of oppression.
Jimmys Hall, a Sony Pictures
Classics release, is rated PG-13 by the
Motion Picture Association of America for
language and a scene of violence.
Running time: 106 minutes. Three stars
out of four.

Shelly Sullivan, a spokeswoman for


the California School Boards
Association.
This is something that we want
fixed, said Sullivan.
The current cap only allows officials
to maintain enough money in reserves
to fund a few full days of operations,
should a district need to depend on its
rainy-day fund to pay staff, according
to a report from the state school board
association.
Marc Friedman, president of the San
Mateo Union High School District
Board of Trustees, said the state
requirement is irrational, because it
assigns a one-size-fits-all approach of
fiscal management to a diverse selection of school districts across the
state.
The San Mateo high school district
is financed through local property tax
revenue, which Friedman said is a
source of funding especially susceptible to fluctuations of the economy and
heightens the necessity of the district
to freely manage its finances.
Had such a policy been in place during the Great Recession, the district
would have struggled to survive economically, said Friedman.
The rationale for implementing the
cap is the state would be able to grow

of the highway, and raise the height of
an existing billboard at the intersection of Dubuque and Grand avenues by
20 feet.
To allow constructing the digital
billboard, which would consist of two
1,003-square-foot screens on a pole 70
feet above the highway, city staff had
recommended amending the citys regulation on billboards, to make way for
as many as three similar displays.
But due to concerns regarding the
ongoing impact of such a decision,
the council elected to hold off and to
allow more time to further understand
how such an agreement may affect
future developments in South San
Francisco.
Under direction of the council, city
staff will come back in August with
another, more thorough, report regarding the specifics of the proposal, such
as potential sites where other digital
billboards might rise in coming years.
If we are going to entertain the idea
of three, where will the other two most
likely end up? asked Councilman
Mark Addiego.

its own reserve education fund during


healthy economic times, which would
spare officials from needing to aside
money for their own district.
But for districts that do not accept
money from the state, like many along
the Peninsula in San Mateo County,
the state reserve fund offers no benefit,
said Friedman.
The governor is creating his own
rainy-day fund, but that fund isnt
shared with us because we do not get
money from the state, he said.
Friedman added credit agencies
which insure school construction
bonds passed by voters typically
assign a rating according to how much
money a district has in its reserve
funds.
Under a scenario which reserve
capacity is limited, interest rates on
existing tax measures could be
increased, and the expense would be
The city recently approved a plan to
overhaul its downtown, with intent to
build a variety of new mixed-use developments near a relocated Caltrain station, over the next few decades.
Officials were hesitant to enter a
long-term contract with Clear Channel
for new digital billboards, due to fears
such as potentially violating the
agreement by approving a development which would obstruct views of
the sign.
Councilman Pradeep Gupta encouraged city staff to reconsider the constraints of the contract which might
impact future development, such as
regulations on prospective heights
and locations.
The city is restricted in the amount
of digital billboards it can construct
along the limited stretch of highway
in South San Francisco, due to guidelines imposed by Caltrans.
The state transit agency has identified the section of Highway 101 near
South San Francisco as a landscaped
highway, which requires 1,000 feet of
separation from the next sign on the
same side of the highway, according to
a city report.
Councilmembers also expressed
other reservations regarding the
design of the proposed digital billboard, as well as the advertisements

passed along to tax payers, said


Friedman.
Its just bad policy, he said. The
legislators and the governor got it
wrong.
Alisa MacAvoy, Redwood City
Elementary School District board vice
president, echoed those sentiments, in
a prepared statement.
We urge the Legislature and
Governor to repeal this fiscally irresponsible law, she said.
Friedman said educators have been
putting up an exhaustive fight since
the cap was approved.
Weve been trying to get this
amended for two years, and it hasnt
worked, he said.
But he remained optimistic the advocacy campaign might be effective
going forward.
I think when people have good,
sound, rational arguments, the legislators and the governor usually change
their position, he said.
Sullivan said as the public grows
more aware of the potential risks and
issues associated with the cap, there is
a greater chance that it could be lifted
in the future.
It is getting more and more attention that this could potentially devastate schools and leave them with two
weeks of less of an operating budget,
she said.

that it might display.
Councilwoman Karyl Matsumoto
said she hoped the billboard would not
show advertisements which are associated with religion, alcohol or degrade
women.
And though the city has no discretion in its ability to regulate which ads
the billboards might present, according to Bruce Qualls, the vice president
of real estate and government affairs
with Clear Channel, the company scrutinizes each advertisement before it is
approved, in an effort to not offend
other companies which have purchased
display time.
He cited the disinterest of Disney,
which is a common advertiser on Clear
Channel billboards, to have one of its
products presented in close relation to
another company which might conflict with its best interest.
The council also instructed staff to
reconsider a proposal to mount a
smaller sign below the main screen,
which would permanently declare The
City of South San Francisco.
I dont think we need this, said
Matsumoto. I think it looks tacky.
Mayor Richard Garbarino concurred.
It looks schlocky, he said.
There are no digital billboards currently along Highway 101 in South
San Francisco.

PETITION TO DECLARE MINOR
FREE FROM PARENTAL CUSTODY
AND CONTROL
Case Number A16318
IN THE SUPERIOR COURT OF THE
STATE OF CALIFORNIA IN AND FOR
THE COUNTY OF SAN MATEO
In the matter of the Adoption Petition of
JESSICA BENAVIDES, of MYLEE ISABEL PEREZ, a minor
No. A16318
CITATION TO PARENT, [Family Code
Sections 7881 and 8604(a)].
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
TO: Michelle Mackey Aleman Perez:
By this citation, you are hereby advised that you may appear in Department
5 of this court on August 13, 2015 at
9:00a.m., then and there to show cause,
if any you have, why MYLEE ISABEL
PEREZ should not be declared free from
your custody and control for the purpose
of freeing her from placement for stepparent adoption, on the grounds that you
have abandoned that child. The above
referenced Adoption alleges that, for a
period of one year after January, 2014,
you willfully failed to communicate with,
and to pay for the care, support, and education of, the above-named child, although able to do so.
The following information concerns
the rights and procedures that relate to
this proceeding for the termination of
custody and control of MYLEE ISABEL
PEREZ as set forth in Family Code Sections 7860 through 7864:
1. At the beginning of the proceeding
the Court will consider whether or not the
interests of MYLEE ISABEL PEREZ require the appointment of counsel. If the
Court finds that her interests do require
protection, the Court will appoint counsel
to represent her, whether or not she is
able to afford counsel. MYLEE ISABEL
PEREZ will not be present in court unless she so requests or the Court so orders.
2. If you appear without counsel and
you are unable to afford counsel, the
Court must appoint counsel for you, unless you knowingly and intelligently
waive the right to be represented by
counsel. The Court will not appoint the
same counsel to represent both you and
your child, MYLEE ISABEL PEREZ.
3. If the Court appoints counsel for y
ou, at the end of the proceeding, the
Court will hold a hearing to determine the
amount, if any, that you will be required
to reimburse the county for the services
of your appointed counsel.
4. The Court may continue the proceeding for not more than 30 days as
necessary to appoint counsel and to enable counsel to be acquainted with the
case.

U.S. seeks U.N. action on chemical weapon attacks in Syria


By Edith M. Lederer
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

UNITED NATIONS The United States


circulated a draft U.N. resolution Thursday
aimed at identifying the perpetrators of
chemical weapons attacks in Syria so they
can be brought to justice.
The United States has been promoting
Security Council action to assess blame
for an increasing number of alleged chlorine attacks,
and Russias U. N.
Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said last
month that the council should look at the
best way to ensure that the people allegedly responsible for chlorine attacks are

PORT

Bridge.
The existing berths at the Port of Redwood
City would also have to be deepened by 2
feet.
The federal government will pay for about
75 percent of the cost if Congress approves
the project.
Dredging work could take up to three years
to complete, Giari said.
The port is predicted to grow by 30 percent

SMOKING
Continued from page 1
Highlands Park near the ball fields, Boland
wrote.
The proposed ordinance would extend the
prohibition of smoking in public places to

brought before a court.


The Organization for the Prohibition of
Chemical Weapons, the global chemical
weapons watchdog based in The Hague,
Netherlands, has a mandate to carry out
fact-finding missions and has condemned
the use of chlorine in Syria as a breach of
international law.
But neither the OPCW nor the United
Nations have a mandate to determine
responsibility for the use of chemical
weapons.
U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power said
in a statement that given the frequent allegations of chlorine attacks in Syria, and
the absence of any international body to

identify the perpetrators of chemical


weapons attacks, it is critical that the U.N.
Security Council find consensus and set up
an independent investigative mechanism.
The draft resolution, obtained by the
Associated Press, asks U. N. SecretaryGeneral Ban Ki-moon, in coordination
with OPCW Director-General Ahmet
Uzumcu, to submit to the council within 15
days recommendations to establish an
OPCW-United
Nations
Joint
Investigative Mechanism.
It says this investigative body will identify entities, groups or governments who
were perpetrators, organizers, sponsors or
otherwise involved in use of chemical

weapons in Syria in instances where an


OPCW fact-finding mission has determined that an incident involved or likely
involved the use of chemical weapons.
The draft resolution reiterates that Syria
is banned from using or retaining chemical
weapons and that no party in Syria
should use or acquire such weapons.
It expresses the councils determination
to identify those responsible for these
acts. And it reiterates that those individuals, entities, groups or governments
responsible for any use of chemicals as
weapons, including chlorine or any other
toxic chemical, must be held accountable.

between 2005 and 2035 due to increased


population driving up construction needs in
the immediate area, according to the state
Department of Transportation.
The port handled 1.4 million metric tons
of dry bulk cargo in fiscal year 2012-13,
according to Caltrans.
The port is owned by Redwood City and is
self supporting. Approximately 75 percent
of the ports revenue is from marine activities and the remainder is from rent and commercial leases. About 10 percent of the
ports revenue is given to the city annually,
according to Caltrans.
The port is predicted to grow substantially
by 2035 due to increased population which

will drive up construction needs in the


immediate area, according to Caltrans.
This is not a growth-inducing plan but
rather a growth-accommodating plan, Giari
said.
Demand for construction materials and
recycled metal is growing and a deeper channel will make moving the materials much
more efficient, Giari said.
A deeper channel will help keep the cost of
construction materials down, he said.
Transporting the material is a significant
part of the cost, he said.
There are lots of steps ahead, however,
before the project is even forwarded to
Congress for approval, he said.

There is another $20 million in costs


assigned to the project not covered by the
federal government. Most of it will be
assigned to private parties, such as up to
$18 million to two companies to relocate
pipelines now located in the Bay to deepen
the San Bruno Shoals portion of the project.
The port is located at 675 Seaport Blvd. in
Redwood City.
The draft EIR can be viewed at redwoodcityport.com.

include public areas. This includes all parks


and outdoor facilities owned or controlled
by the city.
City-owned or private open space areas
identified in the citys General Plan, including, but not limited to, baseball, football,
soccer or other sports fields or stadiums,
dog parks, entrances, exits, trails, playgrounds, easements, paths, music venues,
grass or turf fields, play areas, water fea-

tures, driveways and ramps located in or on


such public places would be subject to the
ban, according to the report.
There would be limited exemptions that
would be designated as outdoor smoking
areas that would be posted with signs.
Many cities in the area prohibit smoking
at parks.
Neighboring Belmont, however, passed
some of the strictest anti-smoking laws in

the country back in 2006.


The Belmont City Council unanimously
approved a secondhand smoke ordinance
that prohibits smoking in most public
places including work, hotels, businesses
and multi-unit common areas.
