Uniting families through literacy and learning
Volunteer honored for work with Redwood City school district
By Samson So
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

As a humble man, Secundino Zuno
laughs when recalling that night.
Serving as a volunteer teacher, Zuno
was recently honored by the Redwood
City Elementary School District Board
of Trustees for his 12 years of devotion
to Hoover Elementary School.
While he is proud of this honor,
Zuno believes that his students’ success is his biggest achievement.
“The whole school board, the superintendent and all the teachers at

Hoover were there and it made me feel
like I was going to have a heart
attack,” said Zuno. “But, the best part
of the day was knowing that I helped
the students.”
It’s been a long journey, since his
days teaching teenagers at a university
in Mexico.
Today, Zuno spends his mornings
teaching elementary math.
“I was not used to teaching little kids
but when I started coming to classrooms and looking at the kids I was
very touched listening to them and the
way they responded,” Zuno said.

Zuno’s dedication stems from a
desire to better the community in
which he works, starting with the
youth.
“These kids are from a low-income
community. Sometimes they don’t
have the values right away and I want
to makes sure they feel important.
They need to start changing their
habits and routine.”
Zuno believes those values are what
develop into the bigger goals that can
lead to success for students.
“I like talking to the kids about their

Hiring strong, but U.S. paychecks not growing

South San Francisco firefighter and paramedic Jesse Lange, right, offers gifts to Frank Mendez Jr., who he delivered
last month. Alexis and Frank Mendez Sr., left, brought their son Friday, July 31, to reunite him with Lange for the
first time since the birth.

A first chance to meet again
South City firefighter reunited with baby he delivered on the highway

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Frank Mendez Jr. is only about
six weeks old, but he already has a
unique story to tell.
The tiny South San Francisco
resident was delivered in the back
of an ambulance on his way to the
hospital by firefighter and paramedic Jesse Lange somewhere near
between Highway 101 and
Interstate 380 early in the morning June 10.
Lange and Mendez Jr. were

reunited Friday, July 31, for the
first time since they met under the
unlikeliest of conditions, as the
Mendez family dropped by the
South
San
Francisco
Fire
Department for a formal introduction.
“I’m just glad he’s doing so
well,” said Lange, as he cradled the
infant.
Lange and fellow department
members responded to an emergency call from a home last
month, where they found Mendez
Jr.’s mother Alexis in labor and

near delivery.
They loaded her into an ambulance with the expectation they
would have enough time for the
baby to be born at MillsPeninsula Medical Center in
Burlingame.
But Mendez Jr. had a different
plan, apparently.
“It was extremely crazy,” said
Alexis Mendez.
The birth happened so quickly,
Mendez Jr. was delivered before

WASHINGTON — U. S. wages
and benefits grew in the spring at
the slowest pace in 33 years, stark
evidence that stronger hiring isn’t
lifting paychecks much for most
Americans. The slowdown also
likely reflects a sharp drop-off in
bonus and incentive pay for some
workers.
The employment cost index rose
just 0.2 percent in the April-June
quarter after a 0.7 increase in the
first quarter, the Labor Department

said Friday. The index tracks
wages, salaries and benefits.
Wages and salaries alone also rose
0.2 percent.
Both measures recorded the
smallest quarterly gains since the
second quarter of 1982.
Salaries and benefits for private
sector workers were unchanged,
the weakest showing since the
government began tracking the
data in 1980.
The disappointing figures come
after the index had been pointing

Bridge repairs hinge on permits
Half Moon Bay officials hopeful feds approve plans for Pilarcitos Creek Bridge fix
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Despite a turbulent start to repairing the
failed Pilarcitos Creek Bridge that connects
a key segment of the California Coastal
Trail, Half Moon Bay officials are hopeful
federal permits could come through just in
time for construction to begin this year.
The State Parks-owned structure has been
closed to the public for more than a year and
city officials were dealt a disappointing
blow in July when a review by the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service appeared to have halted
the bridge’s replacement until next year.
The 21-year-old structure just north of
Francis State Beach crosses environmentally sensitive habitat that falls under the
jurisdiction of the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers. Yet even if officials do receive
clearance from the corps as well as Fish and
Wildlife in the coming weeks, the coastal
climate could hinder the replacement of the
400-foot-long pedestrian bridge.
“I’m still cautiously optimistic all the
regulatory issues and permits required that
are so critical to the timing of rebuilding the
bridge is still a good possibility this year,”
Mayor Marina Fraser wrote in an email.
“Everything needs to fall in place at each
step, including the weather.”
Subject to coastal climate, construction
must be completed before the rainy winter
season. City staff has worked to secure
approval from various environmental entities that raised concerns about the possible
impacts the project could have on three
endangered species — the San Francisco
garter snake, California red-legged frog and
the western snowy plover.
After receiving clearance from the
National Marine Services, the corps requested a consultation with Fish and Wildlife.
Although Fish and Wildlife initially indicated it could take months before a report
was generated, Assistant City Manager Alex

Comment on
or share this story at
www.smdailyjournal.com
Khojikian said the city expects the corps
permit to be finalized by early next week.
Regardless, the city has opted to proceed
with having the bridge prefabricated in the
hopes it will receive clearance. The city has
been extremely active in pushing the nearly
$1 million project through as the path is
heavily used by visitors, school children
and even workers who commute along the
trail.
“With city and State Parks staff consensus, we are planning to proceed ahead to fabricate and install the bridge this year before
Oct. 31, 2015. If we encounter inclement
weather or unforeseen circumstances and the
project is delayed, then we will explore our
options in storing the bridge at the least
amount of cost as possible until next summer,” Khojikian wrote in an email.
Replacing the structure that was damaged
when a State Parks vehicle drove over it has
required significant collaboration between
the city, state and federal officials. The community was outraged when State Parks initially indicated it could take up to two years
and cost $2 million to replace the bridge,
prompting city officials to step in and urge
a quicker resolution. Ultimately, replacing
the bridge while using the existing pilings
turned out to me a more cost-effective
approach than simply rehabilitating it. The
project is primarily being paid for by State
Parks, along with significant contributions
from the city and the Coastal Conservancy.
Although the project’s status has been
changing at a rapid pace, Fraser said the city
anticipates Fish and Wildlife will soon
release a biological opinion — a document
necessary for the corps to issue permits.

the prefabrication of the bridge decking, due
to positive indications with [Fish and
Wildlife] having visited the site, spoken
with the city and gave their ‘biological
opinion’ as guidance for the appropriate
level of mitigation measures to be carried
out, that allows for a permit to be issued,”
Fraser wrote.
Although the bridge’s substructure and
pilings will stay intact, the process may
involve scaffolding being temporarily
placed in the creek prompting Fish and
Wildlife to inquire about the impacts to the
various endangered creatures, the city’s
interim Community Development Director
John Doughty said previously.
Some mitigation measures already
planned include removing invasive cape ivy
that’s overgrown in and around the creek,
however, officials must wait for biologists
to determine if there are other impacts
requiring additional attention, Doughty said
previously.
While at the behest of the federal as well
as state agencies, Fraser thanked U.S. Rep.
Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo; state Sen. Jerry
Hill, D-San Mateo; and Assemblyman Rich
Gordon, D-Menlo Park, for their advice and
guidance.
If all goes smoothly, the new bridge could
reopen a vital segment of the coastal trail
sooner than anticipated.
“When the permit is officially granted,
the city can move forward and proceed with
the work in order to reopen the bridge by the
end of the year,” Fraser wrote. “That is, if
everything falls in place, especially the
weather. So we are on tight timelines
throughout the entire schedule.”

Chowchilla kidnapper to be paroled soon
By Jeff Shuttleworth
BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

One of the three men who kidnapped a busload of Chowchilla schoolchildren in 1976
and buried them in a quarry in Livermore for
ransom will be paroled soon because Gov.
Jerry Brown has let a parole board’s ruling
stand, the man’s attorney said Friday.
On April 1, a two-member state Board of
Parole Hearings panel granted parole to 63year-old James Schoenfeld, who has been
behind bars for 29 years for his role in the
kidnapping. Brown had 120 days to approve
the panel’s decision or ask for all 12 members of the panel to review it but that period
expired at midnight on Thursday without
Brown taking any action, Scott Handelman,
Schoenfeld’s attorney, said.
Brown didn’t have the authority to reverse
the panel’s decision because he only has

James
Schoenfeld

that authority in murder
cases, a spokeswoman
for his office said.
In addition, the state
Board
of
Parole
Hearings’ legal staff
reviewed the panel’s ruling and concluded that it
was consistent with the
evidence that was presented at Schoenfeld’s
parole
hearing,

Handelman said.
Brown’s decision to let the panel’s ruling
stand means that Schoenfeld can be released
“any day now,” Handelman said.
California Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation spokesman Luis Patina said
the prison agency has up to five days to
process the departure of an inmate who’s
being paroled but for security reasons it
doesn’t disclose the exact time, date or loca-

tion of a parolee’s departure in advance.
Schoenfeld,
his
brother Richard
Schoenfeld, 60, and Frederick Woods were in
their early to mid 20s when they ambushed a
busload of schoolchildren from Dairyland
Union School in Chowchilla, a small farm
community about 35 miles northwest of
Fresno in Madera County, on July 15, 1976,
according to prosecutors.
The men left the bus camouflaged in a
creek bed and drove the children and bus
driver Ed Ray about 100 miles to the
California Rock and Gravel Quarry in
Livermore in Alameda County.
They sealed their victims in a large van
that had been buried in a cave at the quarry
and fitted to keep the children and driver
hostage, prosecutors said.
The kidnappers, all from wealthy families
in the Peninsula communities of Atherton
and Portola Valley, then demanded a $5 mil-

lion ransom for the schoolchildren and Ray.
The hostages escaped from the buried van
a little more than a day after they were first
kidnapped when Ray and the two oldest children piled mattresses to the top of the van
and forced their way out.
The Schoenfeld brothers and Woods
received life sentences after pleading guilty
in Alameda County Superior Court in 1977
to 27 counts of kidnapping for ransom.
But an appellate court ruled in 1980 that
they were eligible for parole, finding that
the victims didn’t suffer any bodily harm.
The Alameda County District Attorney’s
Office has opposed parole for the three
defendants and until recently the Board of
Parole Hearings had denied their parole
requests multiple times over the years.
The panel recommended parole for Richard
Schoenfeld in 2011 and he was released from
prison in June 2012.

Speier introduces bill to lift USPS ban on shipping alcohol
By Keith Burbank
BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo,
introduced a bill this week to lift a ban on
shipping alcohol through the U.S. Postal
Service.
Speier’s office said the bill would end a
Prohibition-era ban.
“Prohibition is history, and this ban
should be too,” Speier said in a statement.
“It’s ridiculous that we’re allowing UPS,
FedEx and other companies to ship spirits,
wine and beer to consumers, while banning

the U.S. Postal Service
from doing the exact
same thing.”
Speier’s office said the
ban puts the USPS at a
disadvantage competitively.
Her office said an estimate
by
the
Jackie Speier Congressional Budget
Office shows the bill,
USPS Shipping Equity Act or HR 3412, may
provide the Postal Service with additional
revenue of $50 million each year. The

postal service had a net loss of $1.5 billion
in the three months that ended March 31,
according to financial statements on the
USPS website.
Speier’s office said HR 3412 would allow
the USPS to ship alcohol from licensed producers and retailers to consumers 21 years
old and older.
The postal service would verify whether a
person is 21 as shippers such as UPS and
FedEx do, according to her office.
FedEx spokeswoman Bonny Harrison
said drivers get a signature from an adult 21
years old or older when the company ships

alcohol to homes.
UPS spokesman Dan McMackin said UPS
“drivers are taught to ask for a driver’s
license for any package with an ‘adult signature required’ on it. All alcohol shipments
are supposed to carry those stickers which
are to be applied by the shipper.”
Those shippers must have a contract with
UPS to ship alcohol, McMackin said.
Postal unions, letter carriers’ associations and the Distilled Spirits Council of
the United States are among the groups that
have endorsed the bill, according to
Speier’s office.

Man stabbed while sitting in traffic
Redwood City police are investigating a
road rage incident that led to a driver being
stabbed while stuck in traffic Friday morning.
Police and paramedics responded to the
1100 block of Broadway around 9:25 a.m.
and found a man suffering from a single
stab wound to his ear and neck, according
to police.
The driver had apparently been involved
in a road rage incident just before getting
stopped in traffic. The suspect was apparently a passenger in the other vehicle who
got out and approached the victim sitting
in his car, according to police.
The suspect fled after stabbing the victim who was transported to a hospital with
injuries that were not life threatening,
according to police.
Police are continuing to investigate the
incident and would only describe the suspects as two Hispanic males.

Mosquito treatment this
weekend after West Nile discovery
The San Mateo County Mosquito and
Vector Control District will conduct an adult
mosquito treatment in a portion of Menlo
Park on Sunday, district officials announced
Thursday.
The truck-mounted treatment is scheduled
for an area near El Camino Real and will start
at 9 p.m. and conclude the following morning around 5 a.m., district officials said.
The area, which is primarily residential, is
bound by Menlo Avenue to the north, San
Mateo Drive to the west, Creek Drive to the
south and Waverly Street to the west.
The announcement follows the discovery
of West Nile virus-infected mosquitoes in
samples collected in the area on Wednesday,
according to district officials.
Once the treatment is complete, district
officials will collect more mosquito samples
to further check for West Nile virus.
If the virus is detected in the samples, additional adult mosquito treatments may be necessary, according to district officials.
West Nile virus is transmitted through the
bite of an infected mosquito and the virus
can’t be spread from person to person, district officials said.
To find out more information about West
Nile virus and to view a map of the treatment
area, residents can visit www.smcmvcd.org.

Hillary Clinton releases tax,
health records on busy Friday
By Lisa Lerer
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton
and her husband paid close to $44 million in
federal taxes since 2007 and she is in “excellent physical condition” — two facts that
emerged Friday in a flood of disclosures about
the Democratic presidential candidate pushed
out by her campaign on a busy summer day.
Within a three-hour period, the State
Department made public more than 2,200
pages of emails sent from Clinton’s personal account, her campaign released a letter
from her personal doctor about her health and
she unveiled eight years of tax returns.
Meanwhile, Clinton herself was campaigning at the annual meeting of the National
Urban League and calling for an end of the
nation’s trade embargo of Cuba during a
speech in Miami.
Friday was also the deadline for super PACs

to file their first financial
reports of the 2016 campaign with federal regulators, revealing the names
of a slew of billionaires
and millionaires paying
for the early days of the
2016 election.
Campaign aides cast
the records dump as part
Hillary Clinton of an effort to compete
with Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush on the issue of
transparency. Clinton is the first 2016 presidential candidate to release her health
records, and aides said she released more
detail about her finances than Bush, the former Florida governor who has already made
public 33 years of his tax returns.
Republicans didn’t buy it.
“This massive Friday news dump was not a
good-faith effort at transparency, it was a

deliberate attempt to sweep things like three
dozen more classified emails under the rug,”
said Republican National Committee
spokesperson Michael Short.
The Clintons earned more than $139 million between 2007 and 2014, according to
the returns, and made almost $15 million in
charitable contributions — including a $3
million donation to their family foundation
in 2014. Last year, they paid an overall federal tax rate of 35.7 percent.
The couple made nearly $23 million from
speaking fees alone in 2013 — the year
Clinton left the State Department — and collected an additional $20 million from paid
events last year. The remainder of their
income came largely from book royalties and
consulting fees paid to Bill Clinton.
In a statement, Clinton emphasized that
she came into her wealth later in her life —
an effort to draw a distinction with Bush, the
scion of a rich political family.

Monster fall awaits Congress after summer break
By Erica Werner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — As lawmakers head out
of the Capitol for a five-week summer
recess, they leave behind a pile of unfinished business that all but guarantees a
painful fall.
Not long after they return in September,
they face a vote on President Barack
Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, a brutally
divisive issue that many expect will dominate voter town halls during their annual
August break.
After seeing more videos about fetal tissue collection practices, Republicans also
are increasingly focused on cutting off fund-

ing for Planned Parenthood, raising the
prospect that Congress will spend
September tied in knots over how to avoid
shutting down the government over that
issue.
Later in the fall or winter, Congress will
be faced with raising the federal debt limit,
another issue ripe for brinkmanship, especially given the presence in the Senate of
several presidential candidates adamantly
opposed to an increase.
The House wrapped up its summer session
by approving a three-month extension of
highway and transit spending and authority,
kicking negotiations on a longer-term
transportation plan into the fall, as well.
Signing the short extension into law at

the White House Friday, Obama said, “We
can’t keep on funding transportation by the
seat of our pants.”
China, Germany and other countries don’t
operate that way, he said, chastising lawmakers for delaying budget decisions until
the last minute and for letting authorization
for the Export-Import Bank expire.
With deadlines also looming to renew
authorities for the Federal Aviation
Administration, child nutrition standards
and pipeline safety, it’s shaping up as a
monster of a fall for lawmakers.
“If you take a look at all of the things on
the list, it’ll be a lot of traffic going
through one toll booth, ” Sen. John
Barrasso, R-Wyo., said Thursday.

Not guilty plea in federal court for church shooting suspect
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHARLESTON, S.C. — The white man
accused of gunning down nine parishioners
at a black church in Charleston wants to
plead guilty to 33 federal charges, but his
lawyer said in court Friday that he couldn’t
advise his client to do so until prosecutors
say whether they’ll seek the death penalty.
During a brief arraignment in federal
court, defense attorney David Bruck said
that he couldn’t counsel his client, Dylann

Roof, to enter a guilty plea without knowing the government’s intentions.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Bristow Marchant
then entered a not guilty plea for Roof, 21,
who faces federal charges including hate
crimes, weapons charges and obstructing
the practice of religion. Appearing in court
in a gray striped prison jumpsuit, his hands
in shackles, Roof answered yes several
times in response to the judge’s questions
but otherwise didn’t speak.
“Mr. Roof has told us that he wishes to

plead guilty,” Bruck said. “Until we know
whether the government will be seeking the
death penalty, we are not able to advise Mr.
Roof.”
The federal prosecution, particularly on
hate crimes, has been expected since the
June 17 shootings at Emanuel African
Methodist Church. Early on, officials with
the U.S. Department of Justice said they felt
the case met the qualifications for a hate
crime, and Roof was indicted by a federal
grand jury about a month after the killings.

Several wildfires blackening
dry California’s golden hills
LOWER LAKE — Wildfires blackened the
golden hills of California on Friday, egged
on by bone-dry vegetation, triple-digit temperatures and gusting winds.
Flames consumed a
handful of homes and
chased hundreds of people from their houses,
prompting Gov. Jerry
Brown to declare a state

Eighteen large fires are

California site will let
residents tattle on water wasters
SACRAMENTO — California is launching a website that lets residents tattle on
water wasters, from neighbors with leaky
sprinklers to waiters who serve water without asking.
California has multiple restrictions on
water use, including banning washing cars
with hoses that don’t shut off and restricting lawn-watering within two days of rainfall. But enforcement varies widely across
the parched state.
Residents can send details and photos of
water waste at www. savewater. ca. gov .
Complaints are then sent to local government agencies based on the address of the
offense.
The site went online Thursday as the latest
conservation initiative. More than 300
agencies have signed up to see the details of
water waste tips.

the ambulance driver could even pull off the

driving down the highway.
Alexis Mendez said her son’s birth certificate states no definite place of birth, as no
one can be certain where exactly the ambulance was when he was delivered.
The delivery was not without its challenges though, as Mendez Jr.’s umbilical
cord was wrapped around his neck, causing
his face to turn blue, which Alexis Mendez
said was frightening, especially considering the unconventional circumstances.
But Lange, who had delivered a baby previously, remained calm and coolly slipped

safely finishing the procedure.
Lange credited his extensive training, the
rest of his department members who
responded with him and most of all, Mendez
Jr.’s mother, for allowing a safe resolution.
“She did a majority of the hard work,” he
said.
Frank Mendez Sr., a lifelong South San
Francisco resident, expressed immense
gratification for the hard work of all parties
leading toward his son’s safe delivery.
Antonio Mendez, the couple’s first son,
explored the fire station and received a tour
of the department’s fire trucks while his
younger brother met the man who delivered
him.
Ideally, Frank Mendez Sr. would have
been able to be there with his wife while she
gave birth to their infant, he said, but considering the atypical nature of the delivery,
everything worked out perfectly.

“You always love to be there, ” said
Mendez Sr. “But for what it was, I could not
see it going any better.”
Though the reunion marked the first time
Mendez Jr. and Lange met, Alexis and Frank
Mendez had already expressed a degree of
their appreciation to the department, by
delivering cupcakes and root beer to the fire
station.
“It was nice to get that reward,” said
Lange.
The South San Francisco Fire Department
had some presents for the Mendez family as
well, giving toy fire trucks, clothing and
other goodies for the boys to enjoy.
Lange said he, and all the other firefighters from the department who responded to
the call, are fathers, so they appreciate the
special nature of a child’s birth.
Frank Mendez Sr. said though it was not
his plan to rely on the fire department for
the delivery of his child, he expressed deep

gratification for their ability to keep his
wife safe and calm under such a potentially
dangerous and scary circumstance.
“It’s pretty cool, the way they made her
feel so comfortable,” he said.
Most young boys at some point in their
childhood grow enamored with firefighters,
but not many have an opportunity as unique
as Mendez Jr.’s to get familiar with the profession at such a young age, said Alexis
Mendez.
“He got early exposure,” she said.
Lange said regardless of what the future
holds for young Mendez Jr., he has made an
indelible mark on the firefighters’ lives.
“He’s already part of the department,” he
said.

is not yet back to full health. That could
cause some Federal Reserve officials to push
for a delay in any increase in the short-term
interest rate they control.
“Despite a tighter labor market, and all of
the stories about pay increases at various
large firms, wage growth is not picking up
meaningfully,” said Jennifer Lee, an economist at BMO Capital Markets. “This may
not sit well with (Fed) policymakers.”
Employers have added nearly 3 million
jobs in the past year, lowering the unemployment rate to 5. 3 percent in June,
down from 6. 1 percent 12 months earlier.
Most economists have expected those
gains to force businesses to raise pay to

attract and keep employees.
The Federal Reserve watches the employment cost index closely for signs that
healthy hiring is pushing up wages. Strong
increases could lead companies to raise
prices for their goods to cover higher labor
costs, boosting inflation. That would make
the Fed more likely to raise the short-term
interest rate it controls. Consumer prices
have been tame in the past year, though in
recent months they have moved higher.
In some occupations where bonuses are
common, compensation fell sharply after
spiking in the first quarter. Those include
sales, professional services such as law and
accounting, and management.

The employment cost index figures now
match the sluggish pace of growth reported
in the average hourly pay data that’s part of
the monthly jobs report. Average hourly
wages were up just 2 percent in June from a
year earlier, the Labor Department said earlier this month.
Yet another measure of pay, compiled by
the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, shows
wages are accelerating. Hourly pay for a
typical employee rose 3.2 percent in June
from 12 months earlier, according to the
Atlanta Fed. While that is double the annual
pace of 1.6 percent in February 2010, it is
still below the pre-recession levels of about
4 percent.

Despite bombing, IS is no
weaker than a year ago
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — After billions of
dollars spent and more than 10,000
extremist fighters killed, the Islamic
State group is fundamentally no weaker than it was when the U.S.-led bombing campaign began a year ago,
American intelligence agencies have
concluded.
U.S. military commanders on the
ground aren’t disputing the assessment, but they point to an upcoming
effort to clear the important Sunni city
of Ramadi, which fell to the militants
in May, as a crucial milestone.
The battle for Ramadi, expected over
the next few months, “promises to test
the mettle” of Iraq’s security forces,
Marine Corps Brig. Gen. Kevin J.
Killea, who is helping run the U.S.-led
coalition effort in Iraq, told reporters
at the Pentagon in a video briefing
from the region.
The U.S.-led military campaign has
put the Islamic State group on defense,
Killea said, adding, “There is
progress.” Witnesses on the ground
say the airstrikes and Kurdish ground
actions are squeezing the militants in
northern Syria, particularly in their
self-proclaimed capital in Raqqa.

Greece’s stock market to

ATHENS, Greece — Greece’s government announced that
the Athens Stock Exchange will reopen Monday, a big step
toward normalcy as talks with international creditors shifted
into high gear.
The exchange has been closed since June 29, when the

unspecified time period. A 60 euro limit on cash machines

Tsakalotos met with lead negotiators from the European

regulations.
The third bailout will include a new punishing round of austerity measures heaped on a country reeling from a six-year
recession and more than 25 percent unemployment. Prime
Minister Alexis Tsipras has pledged to back the new cutbacks, while openly admitting that he disagrees with them.

Israeli military: Child killed in West Bank attack
TEL AVIV, Israel — The Israeli military says suspected
Jewish assailants set fire to two Palestinian West Bank
homes, killing a child and critically wounding four others.
The military says the suspects entered the village of Duma
early Friday where they torched the houses and scrawled
Hebrew graffiti.
Forces were scouring the area searching for the suspects,
the military said.
Jewish extremists have for years attacked Palestinian
property, as well as mosques, churches and even Israeli military bases in opposition to what they see as the Israeli government’s favorable policies toward the Palestinians. It is
rare for anyone to be killed in such attacks.

NEW YORK — Stocks closed modestly lower Friday as oil titans Exxon
Mobil and Chevron led a slump in
energy stocks.
The Dow Jones industrial average
lost 56.12 points, or 0.3 percent, to
17,689.86. The Standard & Poor’s
500 index lost 4.71 points, or 0.2
percent, to 2, 103. 92. The Nasdaq
composite closed little changed,
down half a point to 5,128.28.
It’s was a see-saw week for the market, but all three major indexes closed
higher by roughly 1 percent.
Shares of Exxon Mobil and
Chevron, the two largest publicly
traded energy companies, fell roughly
5 percent each on Friday. Both companies posted major declines in their
year-over-year profits largely due to
the big drop in the price of oil.
In the case of Exxon, earnings fell
52 percent from a year earlier, causing
the company to report its lowest quarterly profit since June 2009. Exxon
shares fell $3.80, or 4.6 percent, to
$79.21.
Chevron, hurt by low oil prices and
a write-off of some of its assets,
reported its lowest profit in 13 years.
The company reported a profit of 30
cents a share, well below the $1.13

analysts expected. Chevron fell
$4.55, or 4.9 percent, to $88.48.
Exxon and Chevron dragged down
other energy stocks. The S&P 500
energy sector slumped 2.6 percent, its
biggest drop since January.
Energy companies have been a
major drag on corporate earnings in
the second quarter. S&P 500 companies are on track for a 1.3 percent
year-over-year decline in earnings,
according to FactSet. If energy were
excluded, corporate profits would be
up 5.4 percent.
Even with oil prices down more
than 50 percent from a year ago, crude
has continued to fall. Oil prices
declined sharply again Friday on continuing concerns over high global
supplies and weak demand, helping
push oil down 21 percent for the
month.
Benchmark U.S. crude fell $1.40 to
close at $47.12 a barrel in New York.
Crude fell $12.35 a barrel during the
month, from $59.47 at the end of
June. Brent crude, a benchmark for
international oils used by many U.S.
refineries, fell $1. 10 to close at
$52.21 in London.

in bonus and incentive pay for some
workers.
The lackluster wage growth suggests that companies are still able to
find the workers they need without
boosting pay, a sign the job market is
not yet back to full health. That could
cause the Federal Reserve hold of any
increase in interest rates.
Bond prices rose after the report,
pushing the 10-year U. S. Treasury
note down to 2.19 percent from 2.26
percent on Thursday.
“I can’t imagine the Fed is looking
at (this data) this morning as a reason
to increase rates in September,” said
Tom di Galoma, head of rates trading
at ED&F Man Capital.

Extended slump in oil taking toll on industry, economy
By Jonathan Fahey

ly fueled by consumers spending some of
their savings on gasoline at stores and
restaurants.

NEW YORK — As drivers, shippers and
airlines continue to enjoy lower fuel
prices, the oil industry is responding to
much lower profits with sharp cuts in
spending and employment that are hurting
economic growth.
Low oil and gas prices are good for the
overall economy because they reduce costs
for consumers and business. U.S. economic growth was higher in the second
quarter, and economists say that was part-

But with oil prices down around 50 percent from last year, major oil companies
are cutting back, offsetting some of this
good news. For instance, Exxon Mobil
said Friday it cut spending by $1.54 billion in the second quarter, while Chevron
announced it is laying off 1,500 workers.
Until about six months ago, booming
U.S. oil and gas production was helping
the country’s economy grow during a time
of economic sluggishness.

David Kelly, chief global strategist at
J.P. Morgan Asset Management, said this
week that a $29 billion decline in oil
exploration and mining activity in the
U.S. cut economic growth by 0.7 percent
in the second quarter, a sizable chunk for
an economy that grew 2.3 percent.
Investors also feel the pain. Lower oil
profits have an outsized effect on stock
markets because the companies are so
enormous. Analysts at RBC Capital
Markets wrote that when oil prices drop
by 10 percent, earnings for the overall
S&P 500 fall by 1 percent.

Industry layoffs seem to be accelerating.
Royal Dutch Shell, while announcing
Thursday that profits fell 25 percent in the
second quarter, said it would cut its global
workforce by 6,500. Chevron’s quarterly
profit fell 90 percent and CEO John
Watson said the company is reducing its
workforce “to reflect lower activity levels
going forward.”
Layoffs at three of the big oil and gas
service companies are near 60,000 after
two of them, Halliburton and Baker
Hughes, revealed further layoffs in quarterly filings last week.

SANTA CLARA — Vernon Davis parted
ways with an adviser before last season who
had been pushing the 49ers tight end to get
pushy for a new contract.
“I fired that person because he worships
money,” Davis said. “That’s not what I worship.”
Davis shared the story Friday as San
Francisco’s veterans reported to training
camp ahead of Saturday night’s opening
practice at Levi’s Stadium. He wanted to
explain his absence during the offseason
program last year before he reported to
training camp on time.
“Last year I had a lot of people in my ear,
particularly an adviser who kept telling me,
‘Hey, you should try to get another contract,”’ Davis said. “As my fiduciary, he was
right about a lot of things, so I listened to
him, I took his advice. But during the course
of that season, I had a chance to really think
about it, like: ‘What am I doing? I don’t play
this game for money. That’s not why I play.’
It’s good, it’s good to have that, to get
rewarded and things, but what am I doing?”
Now, Davis can’t wait to get started again
— with a new offensive system, a fired-up
first-year coach who wants to utilize him and
a quarterback in Colin Kaepernick who
spent the offseason improving his game
under Kurt Warner.
The 31-year-old Davis is eager to prove he
can step right back on the field and be the
dominant tight end he was just two years
ago, when he matched his career high with
13 touchdown receptions.
He finished with only 26 receptions for
245 yards and two TDs last year, despite
then-offensive coordinator Greg Roman’s
repeated words that he wanted Davis more
involved in the offense.
“When you look at the season we had last
year as a team I think overall no one really
did well, from a coaching standpoint as well
as players,” Davis said. “It’s done. It’s
over.”

Vernon Davis fired his advisor following last season’s training camp holdout. Davis said he
doesn’t play the game of football for money.

SAN FRANCISCO — New Sacramento
Kings assistant Nancy Lieberman recalls a
conversation with Pat Riley a couple of
years back when she explained to the Miami
Heat executive how much she wanted to keep
coaching at basketball’s highest level.
“When I said to him, ‘You know, I really
would like to coach,’ and he said, ‘You

‘Nancy, if you want
something you have to
tell people what you
want,”’ she said. “I didn’t

Lieberman
They should have a crystal ball and know what I

on my side. The most important thing is
that I started to share what my aspirations
were — ‘I’d like to do this.”’
The Hall of Famer was hired by the Kings
on Friday, joining Becky Hammon of the
San Antonio Spurs as another female NBA
assistant coach.
Lieberman was scheduled to be in Las
Vegas later in the weekend for an NBA
coaching camp with Kings coach George
Karl and Vlade Divac, Sacramento’s vice
president of basketball and franchise operations and a former star player. The Kings
formally announced Lieberman’s hiring
Friday along with the coaching staff.
The 57-year-old Lieberman joins Karl’s
staff in the state capital just shy of a year
after Hammon was hired by the Spurs, making her the first full-time paid female NBA
assistant coach.
“Becky opened up a lot of doors even for
myself, with what the Spurs did and then
with her success at the summer league,”
Lieberman said. “It has an effect on a lot of
people’s thinking and the acceptance. I
believe a lot of people saw that and went:

Seattle signs Wilson to four-year extenison
By Tim Booth
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RENTON, Wash. — Drawn out to nearly
the last moment before a deadline that was
not just for show, Russell Wilson and the
Seattle Seahawks discovered a compromise
in contract talks.
Those worries about Wilson hitting free
agency or Seattle having to use a franchise
tag are now tabled for another five seasons.
Wilson is locked up in Seattle for the prime

of his career after signing an $87. 6 million,
four-year extension on
Friday that includes a
$31 million signing
bonus.
It’s one of the richest
contracts in football history, slotting Wilson
Russell Wilson slightly behind Aaron
Rodgers and just ahead of
Ben Roethlisberger in the hierarchy of quar-

terback contracts on per-year average. It’ll
likely get passed when Andrew Luck signs
his next deal, but for now it pays Wilson at
an elite level for helping lead the franchise
to consecutive Super Bowl appearances.
“For me I just want to be paid based on
what I’m worth, what I’ve produced, whatever that means. For me, I just let the play
speak for itself,” Wilson said. “That’s not
my job to kind of do all that. That’s why I
hire (agent) Mark Rodgers and that’s why I
trust him to figure everything out for me,

work everything out and sure enough it did
and I get to play here for another four more
years. Couldn’t be much better.”
Wilson’s extension keeps him with the
franchise that took him in the third round of
the 2012 draft and watched him become one
of the most successful young quarterbacks
in NFL history. He’s locked up in Seattle
through the 2019 season — the year he
turns 31 — giving him the opportunity at

Bumgarner shelled Oakland’s offense MIA
early in Giants loss
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

By Stephen Hawkins
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ARLINGTON, Texas — Elvis Andrus and
Adrian Beltre homered as the Rangers beat
San Francisco 6-3 Friday night in the
Giants’ first visit since clinching the 2010
World Series in Texas.
Madison Bumgarner (11-6) gave up both
homers and helped ignite a benches-clearing fracas when he shouted something
toward the Rangers bench at the end of the
fourth inning. There were no ejections,
punches thrown or contact made between
players, who were kept separated by the
umpires.
Andrus hit a two-run homer in the second
to put the Rangers up 6-2. He doubled in the
first, scoring then on Beltre’s homer lined
over the 14-foot wall in left field.
Nick Martinez (6-6) won for the first time
since June 9 — seven starts — allowing two
runs with four strikeouts in 6 1-3 innings.
Texas has won three in a row since a 21-5
loss Tuesday night against the New York
Yankees after leading 5-0 in the first
inning.
Only moments after newly acquired Cole
Hamels appeared in the Rangers dugout
wearing his No. 35 uniform for the first
time, shaking hands with new teammates,
both benches and bullpens were clearing.
Delino DeShields had an infield popout to
end the fourth, and he flipped his bat after
hitting the ball. Earlier in the inning,
Rougned Odor made a hard slide into fellow
second baseman Joe Panik to break up a
potential double play.
Bumgarner looked directly at the Rangers

In the top of the fifth, Panik made a hard

play without incident.

in Houston after Odor, who had homered earlier in that game, got into a testy exchange

OAKLAND — Danny Salazar pitched
eight innings of one-hit ball, Michael

ahead.
Cleveland had lost eight of 11 before its

has a 1.53 ERA over his last four starts,
spanning 29 1/3 innings.
Cody Allen got the last three outs for his
21st save.
The Indians tied the score in the seventh.
Yan Gomes singled with two outs and
Chisenhall doubled. Marcus Semien’s
throwing error on Giovanny Urshela’s
grounder allowed Gomes to score.
The A’s took a 1-0 lead in the third when
Urshela mishandled Semien’s grounder,
allowing Mark Canha to score. Canha
walked to open the inning and reached third
on Eric Sogard’s single.
Salazar stifled the A’s afterward, retiring
the next 18 hitters in a row. He also set
down the first six hitters he faced.
Oakland starter Kendall Graveman
rebounded from his shortest outing of the
season and limited the Indians to an
unearned run and five hits over 6 2/3
innings. He walked two and struck out
seven.
Graveman gave up four runs on seven hits
in 1 1/3 innings against San Francisco on

A flurry of trades Three Seahawk defenders
ahead of deadline unhappy with contracts
By Ronald Blum
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — The Mets finally landed the
bat they were looking for in Yoenis
Cespedes just ahead of Friday’s trade deadline, and Cole Hamels confirmed he blocked
a trade to Houston before Philadelphia dealt
its ace to Texas.
Sixteen trades were made Friday ahead of
the annual deadline for deals without
waivers, but San Diego
was among the buyers,
not the sellers, to the surprise of some.
Hamels was the only
top starting pitcher dealt
following earlier trades
that sent Scott Kazmir to
Houston, Johnny Cueto
to Kansas City and David
Yoenis
Price to Toronto. The
Cespedes
Blue Jays scheduled a
blowout news conference at Rogers Centre
to introduce Price, but instead the left-hander was sidetracked by a blowout to one of
the tires on his gray sports car
The 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner,
traded by Detroit on Thursday, tweeted just
after 10 a.m. saying he’d blown a tire.
About an hour later, he posted again to say
he couldn’t find anyone to fit a new tire on
his car.
Blue Jays fans tweeted back, telling him
they’d pick him up wherever he was waiting. One fan cautioned “If you change the
tire..RIGHT HAND ONLY!!!”
Eleven of 15 AL teams began the day within five games of a playoff berth, and seven
of 15 in the NL, where the races are more
defined.
“There are a lot of buyers out there,” Mets
general manager Sandy Alderson said. “And
that probably has something to do with the
second wild card, and maybe just the reality
of that second wild card has sunk in, and the
tightness of various races around both
leagues.”
Cespedes, eligible for free agency after
the season, hit .293 with 18 home runs and
61 RBIs in 102 games for the Tigers.
Seeking to make the playoffs for the first
time since 2006, the Mets have a talented
starting rotation but rank last in the majors
in runs and batting average, and 29th in onbase percentage and slugging.
“He’s a very dynamic player,” Alderson
said. “We think he’s going to impact us in a
number of different ways. But I think also
just his presence in the lineup and his presence on the team will raise the energy level
— and I hope it raises the energy level in
the dugout and in the stands. I think that
this is the kind of player that could have a
big impact both in terms of the game on the
field and how the team is perceived.”
New York already had added infielders Juan
Uribe and Kelly Johnson, and reliever Tyler
Clippard. The moves increased New York’s
payroll by about $8.2 million within the

Sports brief
Woods in contention at Quicken
Loans after a 5-under 66
GAINESVILLE, Va. — Tiger Woods showed a
rare flash of anger on a mostly stress-free day
when his second shot on the eighth hole failed
to clear a massive fairway bunker. The best he
could do was to squeeze it onto the front of the
green.
The mistake on the par-5 hole set up the signature moment of a 5-under 66 on Friday in the
Quicken Loans National that put Woods in contention for his first victory in nearly two years.
Woods sank the 36-foot birdie putt, which
broke hard to the right and trickled over a crest
and into the hole. He celebrated with a vintage
fist pump and smile.
“If I keep hitting good putts, eventually
they’re going to go in,” Woods said.
Woods was tied for fifth, three shots behind
Ryo Ishikawa, who was even par for the day

last week. Milwaukee general manager Doug
Melvin said a trade fell through Wednesday
night that would have sent outfielder Carlos
Gomez to the Mets.
“When you’re in the hunt, what you want
is general managers on your team to be
somewhat aggressive,” injured third baseman David Wright said as news of the
Cespedes trade was breaking. “And it seems
like Sandy has done that. So give him credit.”
Texas completed its deal to acquire Hamels
and left-handed reliever Jake Diekman for
left-hander Matt Harrison and five
prospects. The Rangers will receive $9.5
million — $7 million in 2016 and $2.5 million in 2018 — to offset part of the contract
for Hamels, who is due $22.5 million per
season through 2018 with a club option for
2019.
“I’m excited to start the next chapter of
my baseball life,” Hamels said. “They have
a lot of great players and there’s always a
chance in that league. I don’t think they are
too far away, even this year.”
Hamels, 6-7 with a 3.64 ERA, figures to

ace Yu Darvish, who had Tommy John surgery in March. Hamels, who had a limited
no-trade provision, vetoed a deal to the AL

“You don’t want to say no to anybody and
you don’t want to let a city down or an

want to do what’s best not just for my baseball career, but for my family.”
Philadelphia got Double-A catcher Jorge
Alfaro, outfielder Nick Williams and righthander Jake Thompson — three of the
Rangers’ top prospects — and Triple-A
right-handers Jerad Eickhoff and Alec Asher.
“We’re in a world where teams are buying
talent. This is one of the ways we can use
our economic muscle to buy talent, ”
Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.
said. “We bought talent with talent, and we
bought talent with dollars and cents, as
well. Based on all the information that we
had and the package we ended up getting, we
think we used our money wisely.”
Toronto acquired right-hander Mark Lowe
from Seattle and outfielder Ben Revere from
Philadelphia, following up on its deals for
All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, reliever
LaTroy Hawkins and Price.
“We’re excited and I love the fact that we
were in a position to do some things and be
this close,” Toronto general manager Alex
Anthopoulos said.
Among other deals:
• The Chicago Cubs acquired right-hander
Dan Haren and cash from Miami and righthander Tommy Hunter from Baltimore for
outfielder Junior Lake.
• The Orioles got outfielder Gerardo Parra
from Milwaukee.
• San Diego obtained left-hander Marc
Rzepczynski from Cleveland.
• Pittsburgh got left-hander J.A. Happ

RENTON, Wash. — Michael Bennett, Kam
Chancellor and Bobby Wagner all took different approaches Friday to show displeasure
with their contract situations with the Seattle
Seahawks.
Never shy about speaking his mind,
Bennett used his words to convey unhappiness. Wagner was more straightforward, saying his personal deadline for getting a contract extension from his rookie deal is “now.”
And Chancellor said nothing other than
with his actions, by holding out from the start
of training camp and potentially incurring
fines of $30,000 per day.
“I’m still upset about my contract situation
but it’s one of those things where it is what it
is,” Bennett said. “I’ve got to be professional
and come out here and be a leader that I’ve
always been and get this team back to where
we need to be.”
While the Seattle Seahawks were celebrating Russell Wilson’s contract extension on
Friday, there were a handful of players equally
unhappy about their contract status.
Bennett and Wagner said they considered
holding out but decided to show and avoid paying a fine of up to $30,000 per day. Wagner’s
rookie contract expires after this season,
while Bennett feels he should be paid beyond
the $28 million, four-year contract he signed
in March 2014.
Chancellor’s hold out is due to his displeasure with the compensation in his contract
signed prior to the 2013 season that will pay
him $4.5 million for the 2015 season.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said he’s
exchanged messages with Chancellor but
doesn’t know when the second-team All-Pro
strong safety might consider reporting.
“He has his points. He got his thoughts,”
Carroll said. “He’s a very smart guy. He’s
thought this out. He’s made a clear choice.
We’ll see how it goes. I miss him.”
Bennett’s been the most vocal about his
contract. Bennett said it was discussions with
his wife and kids that led him to report, rather
than holding out to make his stance known.
Bennett’s contention is his ability to play
multiple positions on the defensive line.
Bennett has lined up at both defensive end

WILSON
Continued from page 11
another big paycheck down the road.
Settling on a four-year deal was a big
emphasis for Wilson’s agent to give the
quarterback a chance to capitalize on what
will be an evolving quarterback market over
the next five seasons.
“I think it’s just a sense this is the right
deal. It’s the right deal at the right time,”
Rodgers said.
Wilson has led Seattle to the playoffs all
three of his seasons, beating Denver in the
Super Bowl in his second season before losing to New England in the title game last
February.
He’s also been a bargain for Seattle. The
2015 season was the first time Wilson was
scheduled to make more than $1 million.
That’s now just $700,000 in base salary for
2015 with a $31 million signing bonus —
$20 million now and the other $11 million
next April — more than making up for the
shortfall.
Wilson’s contract status was the biggest
story in Seattle, and the more time passed
without an agreement the more conjecture
grew about his long-term status. There was
growing concern that Wilson would play
out the final season of his rookie contract
and then test free agency. The Seahawks
likely would have used the franchise tag to
keep Wilson for the 2016 season but at a
cost that would significantly hamper their
salary cap situation.
Rodgers said a number of times during the
offseason that the quarterback had finan-

“Every American, whoever
has a job, wants to get paid
more than they got paid
last year. It’s a simple fact.”
Michael Bennet, Seattle defensive lineman

positions and at defensive tackle at various
times during his two seasons with the
Seahawks. Last season, Bennett was in on 85
percent of the defensive snaps, according to
STATS.
Bennett seemed resigned that nothing
would change with his contract now, saying
the best case scenario was playing out this
season and seeing what happens after.
“Every American, whoever has a job, wants
to get paid more than they got paid last year.
It’s a simple fact,” Bennett said.
With Wilson’s extension finished, Wagner
would seem to be next in line. Wagner was an
All-Pro last season despite missing five
games with a painful toe injury and has been
Seattle’s starting middle linebacker since
being a second-round pick in 2012.
“It’s important to be recognized as one of
the best. It’s not up to me. I let the people who
get paid to figure that out, figure that out,”
Wagner said. “My job is to go out there and
make sure this defense is ran right and that’s
the best defense. And it will be the best
defense that you guys see on this field —
again.”
Chancellor signed his four-year extension
following the 2012 season and is regarded as
one of the most unique players in the league
by having the size of a linebacker and the
speed of a safety. Chancellor has played
through a number of injuries, including an
MCL tear in his left knee suffered just days
before the Super Bowl.
“Me and him are kind of going through the
same thing,” Bennett said. “I think Kam has
out-performed his contract. He’s the best safety in the NFL. You see that game in and game
out. He’s the enforcer of our team. He’s a
leader. He does things that no one is capable
of doing. There are a lot of guys I played with
that have injuries that wouldn’t play. ... He’s
making the right decision and I support him
100 percent.”
cially planned to be playing for $1.54 million. Wilson took out an insurance policy
to protect against injury just in case no
extension was reached.
“He’s really competitive. No surprise,
right? He’s really competitive like the rest
of us,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “So
it was emotional to some extent, but I think
in his heart he knew that we wanted this to
happen, we were going to get it done, we
were going to find a way and he handled
himself beautifully throughout the
process.”
Last season, Wilson threw for 3, 475
yards and 20 touchdowns against just seven
interceptions in the regular season. He
added another 849 yards rushing and six
scores, and saved some of his most memorable moments for the playoffs.
He had the Seahawks on the cusp of a second straight title. Wilson got Seattle to the
New England 1-yard line in the final seconds of the Super Bowl, only to be intercepted by Malcolm Butler, clinching the
Patriots’ 28-24 victory.
Wilson holds the NFL record for most
wins in his first three seasons and was the
third-youngest quarterback in league history to win a Super Bowl title.
He’s been a difficult quarterback to categorize outside of leading Seattle to the type
of success it’s never before enjoyed as a
franchise.
“I think his performance on the field
builds the case for him,” Rodgers said.
The Seahawks now have Wilson,
Marshawn Lynch, Jimmy Graham, Cliff
Avril, K.J. Wright, Richard Sherman, Earl
Thomas, Doug Baldwin and Kam Chancellor
all under contract through 2016.

“Rowdy” Roddy Piper, who trash talked his

61.
The WWE said Friday that Piper had died. It

Piper, born Roderick Toombs, was the second WWE Hall of Famer to die this summer
following the June death of Dusty Rhodes.

Lieberman has worked as head coach of

as an assistant general manager of the

Detroit Shock.
She brings a decorated resume to the
Kings and Northern California. Lieberman

Lieberman has been a regular in the NBA

the Oklahoma City Thunder the past three

Piper and Hogan battled
for years and headlined

1985,
at
the first
WrestleMania at Madison
Roddy Piper Square Garden.
Piper was a villain for the
early portion of his career, once cracking a
coconut over the skull of Jimmy “Superfly”

and then hired Karl.
“George is absolutely brilliant, one of the
most brilliant minds in basketball,” she
said.
When Hammon was hired last summer,
Lieberman offered her support and also congratulations to the league.
“The NBA does a really great job taking
care of their people, and they’re not afraid to
think outside of the box. I’m really proud of
them,” she said then. “I’m proud of the
Spurs. I’m proud of Adam Silver. It’s a great
day for women, but it’s a great day for the
NBA and how they feel about their growth
going forward.”
Lieberman was one of the original players
in the WNBA, coming out of retirement in
1997 at age 39 and getting drafted by the
Phoenix Mercury for the league’s inaugural
season. She would become the WNBA’s oldest player, then later broke her own mark on
July 24, 2008, when she returned to play
one game for the Shock at age 50.
Nicknamed “Lady Magic,” Lieberman was
inducted into the Naismith Memorial
Basketball Hall of Fame in 1996 and the
Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame three

Jim Tomsula from defensive line coach to

Staley has no idea why Davis didn’t have
the same caliber of season in 2014.
“Vernon’s a huge weapon for this football
team,” Staley said. “We’d be stupid not to
utilize all the things he can do for us on the
football field. As to the reason why last
year, I don’t really have an answer. Last year
was just a jumbled mess in a lot of different

Tomsula was thrilled by how his players
performed in Friday’s conditioning tests.
“The only fat guy on the field today was
me,” he cracked. “You could see an energy
and a bounce.”
With the retirement of linebacker Patrick
Willis this offseason among other teammates, Davis is keeping his perspective.

Del Rio, the former Denver defensive

Jacksonville’s head coach, watched as his
young quarterback completed several passes
during a team scrimmage. Del Rio later
watched as the defense outplayed the offense
during one segment of practice, which ended
with the offensive players and coaches
doing grass drills together near the middle
of the field.

Beijing the winner of 2022 Winter Olympics
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KUALA
LUMPUR,
Malaysia

Throughout more than 120 years of Olympic
history, no city has hosted both the winter
and summer games. Now, Beijing will be the
first do it — and in the span of just 14 years.
The Chinese capital was awarded the 2022
Winter Olympics on Friday, beating Kazakh
rival Almaty 44-40 in a surprisingly close
vote marred by technical problems, taking
the games back to the city that hosted the
summer version in 2008.
Beijing was seen by the International
Olympic Committee as a secure, reliable
choice that also offered vast commercial

opportunities in a new winter sports market
of more than 300 million people in northern
China.
“It really is a safe choice,” IOC President
Thomas Bach said. “We know China will
deliver on its promises.”
The IOC’s secret vote was conducted by
paper ballot, after the first electronic vote
experienced technical faults with the voting
tablets and was not counted. The result of the
first vote was not disclosed. There was one
abstention in the paper ballot.
Bach bristled when asked at a news conference about the possibility of any voting
irregularities.
“This is an unfair question,” he said. “You

are taking a lot of assumptions. ...
Obviously there was a technical issue with
the voting system, the devices. If the scrutineers decide to be on the very safe side to
have a new vote, to have this vote on a ballot paper, then this speaks for itself for a
very fair election in everybody’s interest.”
Beijing came in to the vote as the strong
favorite, despite its lack of natural snow.
Almaty had hoped to bring the games to
Central Asia for the first time, but was a lesser-known quantity and viewed as a riskier
choice by IOC members. Kazakh Prime
Minister Karim Massimov made a lastminute impassioned plea for the IOC to be
“brave” and give the games to his country.

“Almaty is not a risky choice for 2022,”
Massimov told the IOC delegates. “In fact,
we are quite the opposite. ... We are a golden
opportunity to prove that smaller, advancing nations can successfully host the Winter
Games.”
The tight margin caught most IOC members by surprise.
“Gee, you wouldn’t have picked that close
result a few months ago,” IOC vice president
John Coates of Australia said. “That address
by the prime minister today was brilliantly
crafted. I think that’s why it got close. But
the size of China, the number of people that
are going to be introduced to winter sport
now, those were all factors.”

Lost Fitzgerald
story published
By Hillel Italie
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

They vacation annually at the same
cabin, but Rusty realizes the routine has
become a rut. To shake things up he decides
to recreate his own childhood trek to Wally
World, leading to the introduction of the
movie’s best long-running joke: The Tartan
Prancer.

NEW YORK — A year before F. Scott
Fitzgerald died of a heart attack, he completed a short story about a hard-drinking writer
diagnosed with cardiac disease.
“And as for that current dodge ‘No reference to any living character is intended’ —
no use even trying that,”
Fitzgerald warns at the
start of “Temperature,” an
8, 000-word piece dated
July 1939 that is receiving its publishing debut
in the current issue of the
literary quarterly The
Strand Magazine.
Presumed lost for
F. Scott
decades, “Temperature”
Fitzgerald
was written while the
author known for “The Great Gatsby” struggled to find work in the movie business and
hoped to revive his fiction career. His
screenwriting contract with MGM had
expired and twice in 1939 he had been hospitalized because of alcoholism.
“He felt anachronistic and was trying to
find a voice that didn’t echo with the Jazz
Age, ” Kirk Curnutt, author of “The
Cambridge Introduction to F. Scott
Fitzgerald,” wrote in a recent email. “To this
end he experimented with more hardboiled
tones and sardonic comedy.”
Set in Los Angeles, “Temperature” is an
antic story of failure, illness and decline,
common themes in Fitzgerald’s work. The
narrative is consciously cinematic, with
such lines as “And at this point, as they say
in picture making, the Camera Goes into the
House.” The protagonist is a 31-year-old
writer, Emmet Monsen, whom Fitzgerald
describes as “notably photogenic,” ‘’slender and darkly handsome.” Circling around
the self-destructive Monsen are medical
authorities, personal assistants and a
Hollywood actress and estranged lover who
gets more estranged all the time.
Andrew F. Gulli, managing editor of The
Strand, came upon the manuscript earlier
this year while looking through the rare
books and manuscript archive at
Fitzgerald’s alma mater, Princeton
University.

‘Vacation’ a funny homage
By Lindsey Bahr
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The great American family road trip
seems, in the 32 years since we first met the
Griswolds, as antiquated a concept as ever.
Middle class families fly now — device
enabled, efficiency obsessed and always
aware of the outside world.
Families flew in 1983, too, of course.
“National Lampoon’s Vacation” actually
begins with a bit of a debate about air versus ground, but road trips back then, even
cross-country ones, weren’t so out of the
question for a family of four, especially
when they had two weeks to do it.

There’s beauty and humor, probably, in
the ways families travel now, but
“Vacation,” a spiritual and literal continuation of what John Hughes and Harold Ramis
imagined three decades ago, isn’t interested
in the now of it all.
Rather, “Vacation” is an over-the-top,
often hilarious homage to the original from
the earnest and talented writing-directing
team of John Francis Daley and Jonathan
Goldstein. It’s also completely divorced
from the reality that made the first so perfect.
In 2015, Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) is
grown and living in the Chicago suburbs
with his wife Debbie (Christina Applegate)

and sons, James (Skyler Gisondo) and
Kevin (Steele Stebbins). They’re middle
class in the way that all families are middle
class in the movies these days — you
wouldn’t know it from the house, the
clothes, or their choices. Their life looks
as genuine as a stock photo.

Funny things happen in Foothill’s ‘Forum’
By Judy Richter
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

The 1962 Broadway hit “A Funny Thing
Happened on the Way to the Forum” was the
first musical for which Stephen Sondheim
wrote both the music and lyrics.
Much of his unique style can be heard as
Foothill Music Theatre presents this show,
based on farces by an ancient Roman,
Plautus (254-184 B.C.).
Because it’s a farce and because it has
Sondheim’s music and lyrics, it’s a challenge both dramatically and musically.
Thanks to canny direction by Milissa Carey
and Michael Ryken, who also choreo-

graphed the show, the comedic aspects work
well.
Some of the singing isn’t quite as successful, but musical director Katie Coleman
has made sure that excellent diction keeps
the intricate lyrics clear.
The show opens with a great introductory
song, “Comedy Tonight,” featuring the central character, Pseudolus (Doug Santana), a
Roman slave around 200 B.C.
Pseudolus desires his freedom, but to
secure it, he must help his master, Hero
(Anthony Stephens), win over the beautiful
new woman whom he has seen on the balcony of neighbor Marcus Lycus (Ray
D’Ambrosio), a keeper of courtesans.

However, the woman, Philia (Jessica
Whittemore), has already been sold to a
blustering general, Miles Gloriosus (Scotty
Shoemaker), who’s due soon.
Other subplots arise in the book by Burt
Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, several of
them due to mistaken identities. All of these
complications require Pseudolus to think
quickly, which he does.
Santana does an excellent job with this
balancing act. Others who contribute to the
fun are Todd Wright as Senex, Hero’s wouldbe philandering father; Jenifer Tice as his
mother, Domina; and Mike Meadors as
Hysterium, one of their slaves.
Then there are the courtesans, who have

the most challenging of Ryken’s choreography. They are Vanessa Alvarez as
Tintintabula, Evelyn Chan as Panacea,
Sarah Hammer and Cami Jackson as the
Geminae and Sara-Grace Kelly as Gymnasia.
Many of Pseudolus’s antics are witnessed
by the Proteans: Jason Engelman, Marc
Gonzalez and Kevin Reid.
Running about two hours with one intermission, it’s an enjoyable show.
“A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to
the Forum” will continue in Foothill
College’s Smithwick Theatre, 12345 El
Monte Road, Los Altos, through Aug. 9. For

With new ‘Vacation,’ a look at laughable comedy remakes
By Jake Coyle
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — The modern comedy remake
is among the most laughable of movie genres.
In Hollywood’s reboot frenzy, the movie
industry has increasingly turned to reviving
classic comedies, only to find that few things
are harder to rekindle than the elusive elements — Bill Murray’s timing, John
Belushi’s eyebrows— that make up a great
comedy. The distance between original and
remake is usually as vast as it is between
“Caddyshack” and “Caddyshack II.”
The latest attempt is “Vacation,” a new try
at the classic National Lampoon series that
first emanated from John Hughes’ short story
“Vacation ’58” and was launched with the
1983 Chevy Chase original. Chase makes a
cameo in the latest “Vacation,” but he has
ceded the driver’s seat to his son, Rusty
Griswold (Ed Helms).
In some quarters, the movie has not been
anticipated warmly. In a column for the
Hollywood Reporter, former National
Lampoon editor P.J. O’Rourke judged the film
from its trailer “post-humoristic” and “a summer cineplex dump-fill featuring the
‘Hangover’ wimp dentist as leading man.”
Whether screwball or satire, comedy only

works when it feels bracingly alive. Most
remakes, though, tend to feel like they’ve
been brought back from the dead, only with
all the really good jokes left back in the
cemetery.
Hollywood is devoted to getting it right,
though. The biggest test will come next July
when Paul Feig releases his big-budget
“Ghostbusters.” Feig, at least, has had the
good sense to try an entirely different track,
recasting the leads as female, including
Melissa McCarthy and Kirsten Wiig.
But there are many others in various stages
of quixotic development, including remakes
of “Meatballs,” “Fletch,” “Bill and Ted’s
Excellent Adventure” and “Police Academy.”
With that in mind, here are a few lessons to
draw from an often dubious tradition.

JUST STAY AWAY
More often than not, the best advice is just
put down the script and walk away. Such was
the case for Shawn Levy’s “The Pink
Panther,” which somehow managed to earn a
2009 sequel. Steve Martin is a tremendous
performer, but no one should be attempting
to follow in the clumsy footsteps of Peter
Sellers’ Inspector Clouseau. (Martin has been
a curiously frequent remake star, including
two “Father of the Bride” films and the somewhat better “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” which

but one doesn’t consider that when one is
living on money from a hocked Ford,” he
told Ober. “I don’t have to explain that
even though a man has once saved another
from drowning, when he refuses to stretch
out his arm a second time the victim has to
act quickly and desperately to save himself.”
Curnutt was amazed to learn that a copy of
“Temperature” still existed and called the
discovery a “great find.” Fitzgerald bibliographies list the story (sometimes referred
to as “The Women in the House”) as unpublished, or, in a 2007 “Critical Companion,”

as “Lost: mentioned in correspondence but
no surviving transcript or manuscript.”
Fitzgerald called Hollywood a “hideous
town,” but also “the history of all aspiration.” It was the author’s literary setting for
the rest of his life. By early 1940 he was
turning out his self-deprecating “Pat
Hobby” stories, dispatches about a failing
screenwriter that ran in Esquire. He also
worked on a Hollywood novel he left unfinished, “The Love of the Last Tycoon,”
released posthumously as “The Last
Tycoon.” Fitzgerald died in December 1940
at age 44.

talents, but neither were well suited heirs to

An unavoidable fact is that a few of the very
best comedies ever made were remakes. The
zippy brilliance of Howard Hawks’ “His Girl
Friday” (1940) came nine years after the play
it was based on, “The Front Page,” had been
turned into a film. It would be tried again, too,
in 1974 by Billy Wilder with Jack Lemmon
and Walter Matthau and in 1988 — a lamentable swap of TV news for the newspaper biz
starring Reynolds.
And Wilder’s “Some Like it Hot,” that
majestically madcap 1959 comedy, was based
on a 1935 French film called “Fanfares of
Love.” When the screenplay couldn’t be
found, producer Walter Mirisch tracked down
a German remake of it for Wilder to write
from. In the movies, originality can be a
mangled, many-authored thing. Nobody’s
perfect.

skilled as a short story writer who was able
to pen tales of high comedy.”
Fitzgerald’s stories had run in Collier’s,
The Saturday Evening Post and other magazines, but by the late 1930s he no longer
had a wide following and was unhappy with
his literary agent, Harold Ober, who in the
past had supported him financially. In a letter sent to Ober in August 1939, Fitzgerald
writes he was feeling so neglected that on
his own he mailed submissions of
“Temperature,” which was turned down by
the Post.

It’s almost enough to upstage the actors

“Fitzgerald ... couldn’t help using his
satirical abilities to mock everyone from
doctors, Hollywood idols and the norms of
society,” Gulli said of the story. “When we
think of Fitzgerald we tend to think of tragic novels he wrote such as ‘Gatsby’ and

Still, there is pleasantness to the family

revelation of Debbie’s “do anything” soror-

It’s a testament to the difficulty of the task
if even Joel and Ethan Coen whiff it. The
comedies produced by London’s Ealing
Studios in the 1940s and ’50s are comedy
royalty that few would have the courage to
tackle. But the Coens tried it with “The
Ladykillers” in 2004, attempting a broader
comedy that traded Tom Hanks and
Mississippi for Alec Guinness and London.
It’s among the Coens weaker films, though
they can argue that they fell into directing it.
They were first signed up just to write the
script, but took over directing for Barry
Sonnenfeld when he dropped out. Worth noting, though, is that by staying true to the

DAILY JOURNAL SENIOR CORRESPONDENT

FROM A MOUNTAINTOP IN ARIZONA TO PLUTO AND B EYOND:
FLAGSTAFF’S LOWELL OBSERVATORY OPENS A WINDOW INTO THE
HEAVENS. In 1894, Boston businessman
and astronomer Percival Lowell (18551916) wanted an ideal place to build an
observatory from which he could look both
for proof of life on Mars (which he thought
existed) and for a ninth planet, which he
was convinced would be found beyond the
eight then known. His search brought him
to a mountaintop above the frontier town of
Flagstaff, in what was then the Arizona
Territory. With its clear mountain air, thin
atmosphere (at 7,000 feet), and remote location with little artificial light, the spot suited him perfectly. He named the site “Mars
Hill.” Lowell Observatory now operates
from three sites in Arizona, at one of which
is the $53 million, seven-story-tall
Discovery Channel Telescope, which
became fully operational on Jan. 1, 2015,
and which enables observations of the edge
of the galaxy. But the heart of the institution remains Mars Hill, where the
Observatory’s current 90-person staff continues Lowell’s legacy in one of the world’s
great astronomical centers. Percival Lowell
himself is buried on his beloved Mars Hill
in an mausoleum that looks very much like
an observatory.
SEEING STARS (AND PLANETS).
The Observatory staff conducts tours seven
days (and six nights) a week, sharing their
enthusiasm for their out-of-this world studies. Observatory Night Supervisor Ian
Avilez said: “I am an Educator and Night
Supervisor at the Observatory. Our job
entails giving tours to the public, manag-

ing and working with telescopes, and
explaining science concepts in an
approachable manner to guests. Educators
come from all sorts of backgrounds: education, science, the medical field, we even
have one educator who has a degree in
Paleontology! For me, personally, astronomy is a passion that I’ve had ever since my
parents painted my room with the solar system on the ceiling, and I am currently going
to Northern Arizona University for a degree
in Physics and Astronomy.”
FINDING PLUTO. Although Percival
Lowell never found life on Mars, his belief
in a ninth planet did lead to the discovery of
Pluto. The object formerly known as a planet, the now-”dwarf planet” Pluto, was discovered by Clyde Tombaugh on Feb 18,
1930, at Lowell Observatory. After subsequent observations, its discovery was confirmed and telegraphed to the Harvard
Observatory on March 13, 1930. A name
was selected for it, drawn from more than
1,000 proposals submitted from around the
world. From a short list of three final contenders, the unanimous vote by Lowell
Observatory staff went on March 24, 1930,
to the name submitted by 11-year-old
Venetia Burney of Oxford, England, who
was interested in mythology and suggested
the name of the Roman god of the underworld.

FLAGSTAFF HOSTS A SEPTEMBER
STAR PARTY. The absence of interfering
artificial light factored heavily into
Percival Lowell’s 1894 decision to locate
his observatory in Flagstaff. Today, the citizens of Flagstaff continue to protect their
dark skies as one of the great natural
resources of Northern Arizona. On Oct. 24,
2001, the City of Flagstaff became the
World’s First “International Dark Sky City”
for its success in implementing the ideals of
dark sky preservation. The designation was
awarded by the International Dark-Sky
Association, an organization dedicated to
protecting the nighttime environment and
the heritage of dark skies. From Sept. 1719, 2015, the Flagstaff Dark Skies
Coalition hosts its Second Annual Star
Party to share this resource with those who
may not have the opportunity to view starry night skies because of urban sky glow
and who wish to experience the wonder such
views can inspire. The event is hosted by
the City of Flagstaff, the Flagstaff Dark
Skies Coalition, Lowell Observatory, the
U. S. Naval Observatory, the Coconino
Astronomical Society, and the Northern
Arizona University Physics and Astronomy
Department. For information about

People in the news
Maisie Williams has ‘significant role’ on ‘Doctor Who’
BEVERLY HILLS — When viewers see Maisie Williams
on the new season of “Doctor Who,” she’ll be a brand-new
character, not someone from the
Doctor’s past.
“Once you see what she’s up to ...
you’ll appreciate what a clever idea it
was,” show runner Steven Moffat said
Friday at a TV critics panel. “It’s a significant role. We’re not just getting star
value and throwing it away. It’s a great
part, and she’s terrific in it.”
Maisie Williams Williams is best known as Arya Stark
on HBO’s “Game of Thrones, ” and
Moffat says her role on “Doctor Who” is different for the
18-year-old actress. “If people are hugely associated with a
much-loved show, then it’s good to have them on your
show. The audience is clever. They know you’re playing
somebody else. They don’t get confused,” he said.

goals. In third-grade, I want them to
dream big,” Zuno said. “I always make
sure they have the keys to be successful and I want them to have in their
mind to have a college degree, even
though they are young.”
Although stimulating their growth
at a young age is important, Zuno’s
actions show that maintaining relationships with students is just as
vital.
Zuno’s wife, Ninfa, a third-grade
bilingual
teacher
at
Hoover
Elementary School, describes the
effect of Zuno’s teachings on the community’s youth.
“When my husband is working in
the halls, he usually has contact with
previous students that we’ve had
before. My husband always asks them
what high school or college they will
go to, what they’re considering for
careers and what they really like to
do,” said Ninfa. “Once the students
know he is coming, they make sure to
have something to tell him.”
The bond that Zuno and his students
have, he said, is based on the trust and
respect taught in his classes.
“In my 18 years volunteering in the
community, I have been donating a

new bike to a student who has been
really trying hard and has shown a lot
of effort. The students all decide and
vote who deserves the bike because
they have shown effort and respect in
their study skills.”
Zuno recalls a particular instance
when a boy in his third-grade class
was being picked on by other classmates because they didn’t understand
why he looked different.
“I had a student who had to get
chemotherapy and I was really touched
by all this kid was going through. The
kids were laughing at him and I had to
teach them the difference of right and
wrong and the struggle he was going
through.” 
At the end of the year, all the students voted to donate the bike to him,
not just because he was always doing
the homework and working hard, but
because Zuno had taught them to value
of determination and persistence.
Zuno’s contribution to the community doesn’t stop at students.

school district had expressed interest
in purchasing the site, but Westlake
Realty representatives expressed a
reluctance to sell it.
Officials have identified Charter
Square as the ideal site for a new school
in Foster City but, should negotiations fall through, the district would
likely need to build more classrooms
on existing campuses.
Board President Audrey Ng said
regardless of whether officials elect to
go ahead with an effort to purchase
Charter Square, it is likely the district
will still pursue a bond, as there is not
enough money in the budget to pay for
the construction of necessary classrooms spread across the district.
“I would hope that the board would
see the need to go forward with the
bond,” she said.
The school district is considering a
tax measure on the fall ballot, just as
the San Mateo City Council is set
Monday to finalize its approval of
asking voters to extend a quarter-cent
sales tax during the same election.
Ng said she believes the school district has the necessary support of voters to pass the school bond.
“The community knows about our
capacity challenges,” she said.
Polling data has shown roughly 56
percent of likely voters in the upcoming election would vote in favor of a
$19 tax per $100, 000 of assessed

district, necessary to house the 600
additional students expected to enroll
over the next four years.
Officials are nearing a deadline to
officially float to residents a bond that
will tax homeowners $19 per
$100,000 of assessed home value per
year on the fall ballot which would
generate between $145 million and
$150 million to pay for the construction of additional classrooms.
No decisions are expected to be made
at the meeting Monday, Aug. 3, but the
conversation will lay the groundwork
for the board’s final vote set for
Thursday, Aug. 6.
Prior to the public meeting Monday,
Aug. 3, the board will meet privately
to discuss interest in purchasing property in the Charter Square Shopping
Center, which could be built into the
fourth elementary school in Foster
City.
Representatives from Westlake
Realty, which manages Charter Square,
and school officials have had ongoing
talks about the district’s interest in
purchasing the site.
During the lead-up to the failed

child’s academic success.
“Parents are part of the equation to
help them stay in school,” said Zuno.
“For nine years, the program has
helped over 500 families.”  
Held at Taft Elementary School and
Hoover Community School from 5:30
p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the Zunos’ night
program includes several activities for
families that develop reading comprehension, math and science skills, language arts and overall homework
study skills.
David McBride, president of the
Redwood City Elementary School
District board, praised both Secundino
and Ninfa Zuno for their commitment
to lower income families in Redwood
City.
“These people are doing an amazing
job to get kids to improve and to learn
what to do for their future,” McBride
said. “Mr. Zuno shows up with a smile
on his face every day for his kids.
There’s nothing he wouldn’t do for
them.”
Zuno describes his favorite thing
about working among students who he
“considers his children.”
“I’m very thankful that they let me
be a part of them learning because it’s
something I love to do,” he said.

value, marginally ahead of the 55 percent necessary for pass.
Pollster Brian Godbe has previously
told school officials competing on the
ballot against another tax measure
may adversely affect the school bond’s
likelihood of passing.
Should the district decide to move
forward with putting the bond on the
ballot, the election would be conducted
entirely through the mail, as all voting jurisdictions in San Mateo County
recently approved a pilot program
drafted by Assemblyman Kevin
Mullin, D-South San Francisco.
As officials near making a final decision, Ng said she is ready to move forward toward the next chapter of planning to address the district’s capacity
concerns.
“I am excited to get to this point,
because so much work has gone into
this process,” she said. “We really
need to implement some of these solutions because we are busting at the
seams.”
The San Mateo-Foster City
Elementary School District meets

NOTICE OF PETITION TO
ADMINISTER ESTATE OF
Barbara S. Vos
Case Number: 125930
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: Barbara S. Vos. A Petition for Probate has been filed by Pamela J. Jackson in the Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo. The
Petition for Probate requests that Pamela
J. Jackson be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of
the decedent. The Petition requests the
decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be
admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the
file kept by the court.
The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
authority.
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: August 26, 2015 at
9:00 a.m., Department 28, Superior
Court of California, County of San Mateo,
400 County Center, Redwood City, CA
94063.
If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the
California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special No-

tice form is available from the court clerk.

Section 8.24.200 Sewer Laterals
It is the exclusive responsibility of the property owner to maintain, repair, and/or replace
the property sewer laterals from the building to the sewer collector mains. The City will continue to
respond to requests for emergency sewer service from residents. Where a City-approved cleanout is accessible, operable, and will not damage City equipment, staff will provide ongoing maintenance services as necessary. In circumstances where the private lateral is damaged, staff will
direct homeowners to repair or replace the lateral at their expense. Sewer collector mains shall be
maintained by the city.
Section 2: This amendment is not a project subject to and is thus exempt from environmental review under CEQA pursuant to the General Rule expressed in CEQA Guidelines Section
15061(b)(3). This amendment involves minor text amendments to an existing ordinance and it
can be seen with certainty that the proposed amendments will have no significant negative effect
on the environment.
Section 3: If any section, subsection, clause or phrase of this Ordinance is for any reason held to
be invalid, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portion or section of the Ordinance. The City Council of the City of San Bruno hereby declares that it would have adopted the
Ordinance and each section, subsection, sentence, clause, or phrase thereof irrespective of the
fact that any one or more sections, subsections, sentences, clauses or phrases be declared unconstitutional.
Section 4. The Ordinance shall take effect and be in force thirty days from adoption.
Section 5. The City Clerk shall publish this Ordinance according to law.
