After temporarily banning new chain

The Planning Commission will consider

amendments to the zoning code to define

Crab fishing throughout California has

Pacifica approves emergency repairs

$450K project for seawall, promenade to begin later in the month
By Daniel Montes

City before 12:01 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 6.


The city of Pacifica will begin repairing

its damaged seawall and promenade on
Beach Boulevard, near the Pacifica
Municipal Pier, later this month, city officials said Thursday.
At its Monday meeting, the City Council
approved the repairs and appropriated funds
for the project, estimated at $450,000,
according to city officials.
The emergency repairs are needed to stabilize parts of the seawall that have been compromised after a series of El Nio storms
last month caused it to fail, resulting in
damage to the above promenade.
Repairs to the seawall and promenade are
set to begin within two weeks.
The seawall continues to deteriorate and
action to stabilize the damage needed to be
taken quickly, City Manager Lorie Tinfow
said. The City Council recognized the need
to act fast to protect [not] only the seawall
and promenade but also the city street and
the adjacent homes.
The citys Department of Public Works
hired engineering and planning firm Moffat
& Nichol to develop a structurally engineered repair solution that could be bid out
to a highly qualified contractor with extensive experience in coastal environment
construction, according to city officials.
Engineers with the firm then presented
their design concept at Mondays City
Council meeting.
The work that will be done is just to stabilize the area and will not fully restore it to
its pre-disaster condition, Public Works
Director Van Ocampo said.
The cost to reconstruct the wall and
promenade to its pre-storm condition is
estimated at $2 million. The city has
requested grant funds from the state of

Where did El Nio go? Heat, dry spell stoke drought worry
By Ellen Knickmeyer

SONOMA Where did El Nio go?

Winter has suddenly switched off the rain
and flipped on heat up to 95 degrees in
California, raising jitters that the strong El
Nio might not be the drought-buster the
crispy state had hoped.
Forget El Nio, this is El No-no!
YouTube celebrity Hannah Hart tweeted.
Heat records have fallen across the West
in recent days, from Oregon to Phoenix to
Los Angeles, where surfers hit the beaches
and golfers strolled fairways.
Much of California marked its 10th
straight day on Friday without measurable
precipitation. The blue skies were increasingly unwelcome in a state that just logged
its four driest years on record. California
has been looking for a robust and rainy El
Nio to bring it out of mandatory water cutbacks.
Its nice to have the weather, but we hope
to have the rain, Tia Gavin of Santa Rosa
said as she showed out-of-town visitors
around the adobe central plaza of the wine

country town of Sonoma. Strollers in

shorts surveyed restaurant windows and
lolled on blankets on green grass under the
The dry spell came after El Nio dropped
near-normal rain and snow earlier this winter.
If you just looked at the precipitation,
you wouldnt think that there was an El
Nio going on, said Sam Iacobellis, a climate researcher at Scripps Institution of
Oceanography in San Diego. He has been
taking note of early blooming flowers as he
drove to work this week.
Strong El Nios such as the one this year
typically bring strong rain, Iacobellis said.
However, there have been few modern El
Nios on the scale of this one, making
comparisons trickier, he said.
National Weather Service forecasters were
quick to offer soothing messages of drizzle
yet to come.
No need to be concerned, forecaster
Steve Anderson said.
The balmy weather has been awesome.
Its been great. But its not going to last,
he said. Its still winter.

Valentines Day is historically the busiest

day for weddings at the San Mateo County
Clerks Office but this year the special day for
love falls on a Sunday, when most county
offices are closed.
But those wanting to get married Sunday
will still have the chance as the county
clerks office will open for five hours starting
at 9 a.m. for those seeking to tie the knot.
The office opened last year too when
Valentines Day fell on a Saturday and again
in 2011 when it fell on Presidents Day.
Chapel reservations are highly recommended.
Last year, every slot was full, said Jim

Irizarry, assistant county clerk.

The office does not have to remain open but
County Clerk Mark Church has declared it so,
Irizarry said.
There are 11 slots for weddings to be held at
the county chapel this year, he said.
Couples usually do not show up by themselves, he said.
Weddings are an event and an even bigger
event on Valentines Day, Irizarry said.
Those marrying on Feb. 14 will receive a
red rose and a complimentary DVD of the ceremony if reservations are made ahead of time.
The clerks office also offers a live Internet
broadcast of the wedding for loved ones to
watch from around the world for $50.
Its a very important day filled with love
and romance and relationships. What could

Urbanization leads to change T

in type of bacteria in the home
By Lauran Neergaard

WASHINGTON Whether its a jungle

hut or a high-rise apartment, your home is
covered in bacteria, and new research from
the Amazon suggests city dwellers might
want to open a window.
Scientists traveled from remote villages
in Peru to a large Brazilian city to begin
tracking the effects of urbanization on the
diversity of bacteria in peoples homes.
Its a small first step in a larger quest
understanding how different environmental
bugs help shape whats called our microbiome, the trillions of bacteria that share
our bodies and play a critical role in our

Man who died after car went

down embankment identified
A man who was found dead Thursday inside
a vehicle that went down an embankment in
Portola Valley has been identified by the
San Mateo County Coroners Office.
Jeffrey Adan, 47, of Woodside was found
inside a red Jeep Cherokee at the bottom of
an embankment off Skyline Boulevard near
Old La Honda Road at around 11 a.m.
A resident nearby told CHP officers that
when she noticed skid marks on Skyline
Road, she then looked down at the edge of
the cliff and saw the car down the embankment, according to CHP officials.
Officers found the Jeep 160 feet down the
cliff. Adan was pronounced dead at the
scene, CHP officials said.
It appears he was headed north on Skyline
sometime Tuesday night or early Wednesday
morning when he lost control of the car,
veered across the road and crashed down the

Very little is known about the microbes

of the built environment, microbiologist
Maria Gloria Dominguez-Bello of New York
University, who led the pilot study, said at a
meeting of the American Association for the
Advancement of Science.
Her team found that as people living in
the Amazon rainforest become more urbanized, the kinds of bacteria in their homes
change from the bugs mostly found in nature
to those that typically live on people, she
reported Friday.
In fact, in city dwellings, the researchers
could tell just by the microbial fingerprints
of the walls that this is a kitchen or this is
a bathroom or this is a living room. Thats
amazing, Dominguez-Bello said.
As she puts it, the walls talk.

CHP officials believe Adan had likely
been dead for more than 24 hours before he
was found.

Presidential contenders fight for minority voters in S.C.

By Seanna Adcox
and Kathleen Hennesey

DENMARK, S.C. The fight

for black voters turned into a tugof-war over President Barack
Obamas legacy Friday as
Democratic presidential hopefuls
looked for an edge in South
Carolina. Republicans, meanwhile, crisscrossed the state in
search of a path out of Donald
Trumps long shadow.
Hillary Clinton stepped up her
hammering of rival Bernie
Sanders for what she said are his
false claims on Obamas legacy.
Prominent black leaders echoed
the theme an effort to use the
first African-American president
as a wedge between Sanders and
black voters.
He has called the president
weak, a disappointment, Clinton
said of Sanders at a town hall
Friday. He does not support, the
way I do, building on the progress
the president has made.
Coming off a bruising rout in
New Hampshire, the former secretary of state hopes the first-in-thesouth primary will showcase her

strength with at least one core

segment of the Democratic coalition. A Democrat cannot win the
nomination, much less the White
House, without significant backing and enthusiasm from black
Carolina is another chance to
emerge as the viable alternative to
the billionaire reality-TV star who
snatched the race away from the
GOP establishment. Although
Trump appears to have a solid lead
in the polls in the state, the rest of
the field is hoping to peel off support from the large and influential
evangelical community.
As his rivals hustled through
rare snowfall Friday, Trump
showed he wont make it easy. He
was able to steal the spotlight
with a Twitter threat to sue his

closest competitor.
If @TedCruz doesnt clean up
his act, stop cheating & doing
negative ads, I have standing to
sue him for not being a natural
born citizen, Trump wrote.
Another tweet questioned Cruzs
faith: How can Ted Cruz be an
evangelical Christian when he
lies so much and is so dishonest?
Jeb Bush and his allies have
kept up his attacks on the bombthrowing front-runner hoping
his coarse style and record on
social issues will turn voters off.
Right To Rise USA, the super
PAC backing Bush, released an
attack ad blasting Trump for supporting partial-birth abortion,
allegedly defrauding students of
Trump University and trying to
seize private property to line his
own pockets.

Jeb Bush

John Kasich

If Trump wins, conservatives

lose, says the ad.
On Friday, Bush campaigned at a
faith forum at conservative Bob
Jones University in Greenville,
where he mused about what his
famous father, former President
George H.W. Bush, would think of
Trumps cursing.
I cant imagine my dad ..., Jeb
Bush said, trailing off as the audience laughed, imagining the former president cursing. Yeah, not
gonna do it.
Bush has embraced his familys
network in the state. Hes inviting
his brother, former President
George W. Bush, to campaign with
him. On Friday, he picked up the
endorsement of South Carolinas
former first lady Iris Campbell, a
longtime Bush family ally.
Bushs rival in the fight for the

moderate establishment was still

introducing himself to South
Carolina voters. In a new biographical ad, Ohio Gov. John Kasich
notes that his parents death in a
drunk-driving crash in 1987
transformed him and helped him
find his faith.
A second new ad promises a
whirlwind of activity in the first
100 days of a Kasich presidency
no excuses, no surrender,
says a narrator with a hint of a
Southern accent.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, looking to re-establish his footing
after a fifth-place finish in New
Hampshire, lashed out at Trump,
Cruz and Bush Thursday, saying
none of them possesses foreign
policy experience required of a
commander in chief.

House sends North Korea
sanctions bill to president for signature
WASHINGTON Congress sent President Barack Obama
legislation Friday that hits North Korea with more stringent sanctions for refusing to stop its nuclear weapons program.
House Republicans and Democrats joined together to
overwhelmingly approve the bill by a vote of 408-2 less
than a week after North Korea launched a rocket carrying a
satellite into space. Pyongyang conducted its fourth underground nuclear test last month. Both actions sparked worldwide condemnation and heightened fears the reclusive Asian
nation is moving steadily toward assembling an atomic
The Senate passed the legislation earlier this week.
The Obama administration said it wouldnt oppose the
bill, but officials declined to say whether or when President
Barack Obama would sign it. The sanctions from Congress
come at the same time that the U.S. and China are in delicate
negotiations over a U.N. Security Council resolution on
new sanctions, with China raising concerns about measures
that could devastate North Koreas economy.
The expanded sanctions are intended to deny North Korea
the money it needs for the development of miniaturized
nuclear warheads and the long-range missiles required to
deliver them.
The legislation also authorizes $50 million over the next
five years to transmit radio broadcasts into North Korea,
purchase communications equipment and support humanitarian assistance programs.

Congress gives final OK to

banning local Internet taxes
WASHINGTON Congress voted Thursday to permanently bar state and local governments from taxing access
to the Internet, as lawmakers leapt at an election-year
chance to demonstrate their opposition to imposing levies
on online service.
On a vote of 75-20, the Senate gave final congressional
approval to the wide-ranging bill, which would also revamp
trade laws. The White House said President Barack Obama
will sign it.
The Internet is a resource used daily by Americans of all
ages, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, RKy., who brokered an agreement with a Democratic leader
earlier this week that helped clear the way for passage. Its
important that they be able to do all of this without the
worry of their Internet access being taxed.
The ban on local Internet access taxes had broad support.
Even so, some lawmakers remained unhappy over its trade
provisions and because the measure omitted a separate,
more controversial proposal to let states force online
retailers to collect sales taxes for their transactions.
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the bill
was full of missed opportunities and half-measures.
Since 1998 in the Internets early days, Congress has
passed a series of bills temporarily prohibiting state and
local governments from imposing the types of monthly
levies for online access that are common for telephone
service. Such legislation has been inspired by a popular
sentiment that the Internet should be free, along with
Republican opposition to most tax proposals.


Castle Mountain National Monument in the Mojave Desert. Nearly 2 million acres of scenic California desert have been
designated as national monuments under an executive order by Barack Obama.

Obama moves to protect nearly

1.8M acres of California desert
By John Rogers

LOS ANGELES President Barack

Obama granted national monument
status Friday to nearly 1.8 million
acres of scenic Southern California
desert, a move the White House says
will maintain in perpetuity the
regions fragile ecosystem and natural
resources, as well as provide recreational opportunities for hikers,
campers, hunters and others.
Obama, in California this week for a
fundraising swing, signed proclamations establishing three regions as
national monuments Mojave Trails,
Castle Mountains (both in the Mojave
Desert) and Sand to Snow in the
Sonoran Desert.
The White House says the designa-

tions will nearly

double the amount
of public land that
Obama has designated as national
monument status
since taking office.
In addition to
permanently proBarack Obama tecting incredible
natural resources,
wildlife habitat and unique historic and
cultural sites, and providing recreational opportunities for a burgeoning
region, the monuments will support
climate resiliency in the region ...,
the White House said in a statement.
The designations will also connect
those regions to other protected government land, including Joshua Tree
National Park, the Mojave National

Preserve and 15 other federal wilderness areas.

Mojave Trails National Monument,
at 1.6 million acres, is by far the
largest of the three new ones.
Sprawling across the vast Mojave
Desert, it contains ancient lava flows,
spectacular sand dunes, ancient Native
American trading routes and World War
II-era training camps. It also contains
the largest remaining undeveloped
stretch of Americas Mother Road, historic Route 66.
Monument, also in the Mojave Desert,
links two mountain ranges as it covers
nearly 21,000 acres that hold numerous important Native American archaeological sites. The area is also home to
golden eagles, bighorn sheep, mountain lions and other wildlife.

Yellen: Too early to determine impact of global economy

By Martin Crutsinger

WASHINGTON Federal Reserve

Chair Janet Yellen cautioned Thursday
that global economic pressures pose
risks to the U.S. economy but said its
too soon to know whether those risks
are severe enough to alter the Feds
interest-rate policies.
Yellen said the Fed will determine at
its next meeting in March how much
economic weakness and falling markets
around the world have hamstrung U.S.

growth. And for a

second day, Yellen
was asked about the
possibility that the
Fed would use negative interest rates as
a way to give the
economy more support.
She repeated that

the prospect of
deploying negative rates in 2010 but

Finally: Pope
meets Russian
Orthodox leader
By Nicole Winfield

MEXICO CITY With an exclamation of Finally, Pope Francis

embraced Patriarch Kirill on
Friday in the first meeting
between a pontiff and the head of
the Russian Orthodox Church, a
brief but historic encounter held
during a stopover in Cuba before
the pope flew on to Mexico.
The meeting in the small, woodpaneled VIP room of Havanas airport was a landmark development
in the 1,000-year schism that has
divided Christianity.
We are brothers, Francis said
as he embraced Kirill. The men
exchanged three kisses on the
Now things are easier, Kirill
agreed. This is the will of God,
the pope said.
Later Friday, Francis flew into
Mexico Citys airport to begin a

five-day visit during which he

plans to bring a message of solidarity with the victims of drug
violence, human trafficking and
discrimination to some of that
countrys most violent and poverty-stricken regions.
A smiling Francis was greeted
with a rock concert-like show with
blue floodlights illuminating a
stage and bandstands and crowds
waving yellow handkerchiefs.
Mariachis serenaded as his chartered plane pulled to a stop and
people shouted Brother Francis,
youre already Mexican.
President Enrique Pena Nieto and
his wife met Francis on a red carpet.
The pontiff made no public remarks
before beginning a 22-kilometer
(13 1/2-mile) trip to the papal
envoys residence for the night.
In Havana, the two church leaders meeting and signing of a joint
declaration was decades in the
making and cemented Francis rep-

utation as a risk-taking statesman
who values dialogue, bridge-building and rapprochement at almost
any cost.
In the 30-point statement, the
pope and patriarch declared themselves ready to take all necessary
measures to overcome their his-

torical differences, saying we are

not competitors, but brothers.
Francis and Kirill also called for
political leaders to act on the single most important issue of shared
concern between the Catholic and
Orthodox churches today: the
plight of Christians in Iraq and
Syria who are being killed and

driven from their homes by the

Islamic State group.
In many countries of the
Middle East and North Africa,
entire families of our brothers and
sisters in Christ are being exterminated, entire villages and
cities, the declaration said.

Eurozone economy ends 2015 with whimper as dark clouds grow

By Pan Pylas

LONDON The 19-country

eurozone is in its longest stretch
of economic expansion since the
global financial crisis in 2008 but
growth remains paltry despite a
series of tail winds and is susceptible to a reverse if the worst fears in

financial markets come to

The regions economy grew by a
quarterly 0.3 percent in the final
three months of the year for the
second quarter running, the
European Unions statistics
agency, Eurostat, said Friday.
Though the report contained few
details on what drove the growth,
information from individual coun-

tries suggests a rise in spending

by consumers and governments
offset the effects of waning global
trade. Thats certainly true for
Germany, Europes largest economy, where energy cost savings
appeared to have buoyed consumers and the influx of refugees
prompted the government to
increase spending.
The question for 2016 is

whether those over-arching

domestic trends can offset the drag
from outside the region. The global market turmoil of the past few
weeks, largely stoked by worries
over the Chinese economy, could
seriously erode Europeans sense
of confidence and wealth.
If the markets are right, the economic outlook has darkened materially, raising fears that the euro-

zone recovery could swiftly go

into reverse. The risks are heightened by the fact that many governments cannot spend much due to
high debt and many banks not
just in financially troubled Italy
and Greece are still trying to
get rid of bad loans. Even banks
like Deutsche Bank, Germanys
biggest, have been caught up in
the market angst.

Around the world

Brazil minister says no doubt
Zika connected to microcephaly
BRASILIA, Brazil Brazils health minister said Friday
that authorities were absolutely sure that the Zika virus is
connected to devastating birth defects and rejected criticism
that the government was slow to investigate the surge of
cases that set off international alarms.
Marcelo Castro made the remarks during an interview
with the Associated Press in Brazils capital. He spoke a day
before tens of thousands of soldiers and health inspectors
were to take to the streets in an unprecedented drive to
encourage residents to be vigilant for mosquito breeding
sites. The goal: visit 3 million homes in more than 350
Brazil is at the epicenter of a mosquito-borne virus that
has been linked to rare birth defects known as microcephaly. The U. S. Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention has warned pregnant women to avoid traveling
to more than two dozen countries and territories in the
Americas where active outbreaks are taking place.
Although the link has not been scientifically proven and
myriad questions remain, Castro said the half-year gap
between the virus outbreak in South Americas largest country and the spike in reported cases of microcephaly was not
a coincidence.

Iran rules decadent

Valentines Day celebrations a crime
TEHRAN, Iran Iran says it is cracking down on
Valentines Day celebrations and shops engaging in them
will be guilty of a crime.
Iranian news outlets reported the police directive Friday
warning retailers against promoting decadent Western culture through Valentines Day rituals. Police informed
Tehrans coffee and ice cream shops trade union to avoid any
gatherings in which boys and girls exchange Valentines
Day gifts.
The annual Feb. 14 homage to romance, which tradition
says is named after an early Christian martyr, has become
popular in recent years in Iran and other Middle East countries.
The backlash in the Islamic Republic is part of a drive
against the spread of Western culture.
Saudi Arabia has also sought to stamp out Valentines Day
but its celebrated widely in nearby places like Dubai.

U.S. retail sales rise as

consumers shrug off stock price drop
WASHINGTON U.S. retail sales rose
modestly in January, evidence that
Americans kept shopping despite sharp
drops in stock prices.
The Commerce Department said Friday
that retail sales increased a seasonally

in December. Excluding the effect of falling
gas prices, sales rose 0.4 percent.
Sales in December were revised higher

U.S. stocks ended a down week on a

high note Friday, snapping a five-day
losing streak on the strength of energy and financial companies.
A sharp rebound in oil prices and an
encouraging report on retail sales
helped lift the stock market to its first

Despite the rally, the major U.S.

Visa discloses stake in

Dorseys company, Square
NEW YORK Shares in the mobile payment services company Square rose sharply
Friday after Visa disclosed the details of its
ownership stake in the company.
While Visas stake amounts to about 1
percent of the company, and the stake was
established at least 5 years ago, investors
interpreted the announcement as a major
endorsement of Square by Visa, the worlds
largest payment processing company.

A surge in oil prices helped put
investors in a buying mood early on. A
day after sinking to its lowest level
since May 2003, benchmark U. S.
crude climbed $3.23, or 12.3 percent,
to close at $29.44 a barrel in New
York. Brent crude, a benchmark for

Mills outguns rival Capuchino

By Terry Bernal

Rivalry battles have a way of bringing

out the best in teams, and that was certainly
the case for Mills boys basketball Friday
Locking up at archrival Capuchinos
house, the Vikings fluid ball movement
worked like magic in a 49-48 upset to end
the regular season.
The loss is devastating for the Mustangs
(6-6 in PAL South, 12-12 overall), as it
drops them into fourth place in the

Peninsula Athletic League South Division

standings. Finishing tied for fourth with
Sequoia, Cap loses the tiebreaker having
dropped its one matchup to the Cherokees
this season, knocking the Mustangs out of
the PAL postseason tournament.
It was a tall order for Cap to play without
its best player, senior Lucas Magni. The 6-3
forward exited Tuesdays 42-33 loss to San
Mateo with a concussion and will not be
cleared to play for at least another week,
according to Cap head coach Marty Ruiz.
We wanted to win, Ruiz said. The kids
played really hard. We played a really good

game considering we didnt have Lucas.

Weve won some close ones and lost some
close ones this year. We couldnt get up on
them; and you dont want to be playing from
behind against Mills.
The rivals traded leads throughout the first
quarter, but Mills pulled ahead on a short
jump shot by center James Kontonis with
35 seconds remaining in the first half.
The Vikings (5-7, 8-16) maintained that
lead to the final buzzer. But it didnt come
easy. Despite leading by as much as 8 with

The games just keep getting more and

more critical for the Menlo-Atherton boys'
soccer team.
Entering into play Friday locked in a
three-way tie for first place in the Peninsula
Athletic League Bay Division, the Bears (82-2 in PAL Bay, 12-3-2 overall) needed to
execute a win at Burlingame (0-7-2, 1-10-2).
Fueled by a tiebreaking goal in the second
half by sophomore Jean Claverie, M-A
sealed a 2-1 victory, maintaining a two-way
share for first place with Aragon, after the
Dons beat Sequoia the other first-place
team entering play Friday.
Now M-A and Aragon are on a collision
course, as the two teams meet Wednesday to
all but decide the PAL Bay Division championship.
The destiny is kind of in our hands, M-A
head coach Leo Krupnik said. So I told the
guys [Burlingame] is our most important game
because, if we win, that gives us a chance.
The chance presented itself as a novel
comeback for the Bears, who have rarely
played from behind this season. But when
Burlingames Matt Allen scored in the ninth
minute, the Panthers challenged M-A to do
just that. And the Bears hyper-aggressive
tempo with a flare for showy ball control
saved the day.
M-A got on the board near the end of the
first half on a strike by senior forward Kyle
Smith. The goal was the 60th of Smiths
career, who tabbed a career-high 27 goals
last season as a junior. This year, however,
Smith has been plagued by injury, including
his missing a stretch of four games after

Dons stay atop table

By Nathan Mollat

Perhaps the Sequoia boys soccer team

went into Fridays showdown with Aragon a
bit overconfident.
After all, the Cherokees had beaten the
Dons 5-1 back on Jan. 20 and they were
coming off two of their best games of the
season in a tie and win against MenloAtherton and Half Moon Bay, respectively.
Aragon, however, made Sequoia pay early

and it turned out to be the difference in a 2-1

Aragon victory.
I think they were underestimating us
after that first game, said Aragon coach
Greg Markoulakis.
Its almost unconscionable that Sequoia
would not be prepared for Fridays game.

came into Fridays games tied atop the

Skylines Madigan returns to form following surgery

By Terry Bernal

Through three starts this season, Skyline

left-hander Daniel Madigan has made huge
strides in returning to form after undergoing
Tommy John surgery over a year ago.
Madigans latest outing was his best performance yet, as the sophomore worked
seven shutout innings to earn the win in a 51 victory for Skyline (4-2 overall) over
Shasta College (0-5) Friday at Trojans

Diamond. The southpaw allowed four hits

while striking out six and walking none to
improve his record to 2-0.
In throwing 104 pitches against the classic backdrop of a Skyline fog that overtook
the diamond as the game wore on, the
plateau marked the first time Madigan has
surpassed 100 pitches since 2014.
Overall I feel good, Madigan said. I
didnt feel this good even before I got hurt.
Not that Madigan was able to stay off the
field during his redshirt season of 2015.

While he wasnt able to throw, he returned

to his alma mater Carlmont and served as
the pitching coach for a team that went 248 and reached the Central Coast Section
Open Division semifinals.
With the Scots, he coached Skyline freshman right-hander Joe Pratt, as well as second baseman Aaron Albaum. And Madigan
has made the transition back to being a
player seamlessly.
[The relationship is] good, Madigan
said. They dont look at it any differently

than they did when I was coaching.

Madigan said he took to coaching to keep
from going crazy while not being able to
take the mound. He joined the Scots coaching staff after former pitching coach Bob
Sargent stepped down following the 2014
season. Including Sargents five seasons on
Carlmonts coaching staff, he was a longtime coach in the local Joe DiMaggio
League ranks. So, when he left Carlmont, he
also left some big shoes to fill.

Steph Curry at the height of his powers

By Jon Krawczynski

TORONTO When the Toronto Raptors

signed Dell Curry in 1999 to provide some
shooting on the perimeter, they also acquired
two young children in the deal that would dart
around the back hallways of the Air Canada
Center dribbling basketballs and bouncing
off the walls.
Steph Curry remembers those days well as a
pre-teen, horsing around with little brother
Seth in front of ushers who still work there.
He recalls watching his first and only hockey
game when the Maple Leafs were home, and
even being held out of his first game as a middle school kid because he did not do the dishes earlier that day.
To be back here and celebrate an All-Star
game is special, Curry said on Friday.
He returns to the place he called home for
three years for All-Star weekend at the height
of his powers, an NBA champion, the reigning MVP and the new face of the league while
his Golden State Warriors blow the doors off
of the competition.
Theres a lot more to accomplish, Curry
said. Its nice that I won a championship and

an MVP and all that and to

be here for weekends like
this. I want to continue to
strive for more.
The Warriors are an
astounding 48-4 at the
break and have taken aim
at the single-season
record of 72 wins by the
Steph Curry 1995-96 Chicago Bulls.
Curry leads the league in
scoring at 29.8 points per game and splashes
3-pointers like no one to have ever played
before him. A second straight MVP award
appears inevitable, and the baby-faced assassin has designs on doing for Under Armour
what Michael Jordan did for Nike.
He has also made the 3-pointer cool again,
with his showdown with teammate Klay
Thompson in the 3-point shootout on
Saturday night as anticipated of an event as
the dunk contest. Maybe more.
Ive never seen anybody hit the shots that
he hits, Hall of Famer Shaquille ONeal said.
Thats the only thing you can say right now.
Hes really that good.

Brewers trade OF Khris Davis

to Athletics for two prospects
MILWAUKEE The Milwaukee Brewers have traded
power-hitting outfielder Khris Davis to the Oakland
Athletics for a pair of prospects.
Milwaukee acquired catcher Jacob Nottingham and righthanded pitcher Bubby Derby in the deal Friday. The As and
Brewers each won only 68 games last year.
The 28-year-old Davis hit 27 home runs last season,
10th-most in the National League, and he batted .247 with
66 RBIs in 121 games. Davis is not eligible for free agency
until after the 2019 season.
Davis has played exclusively in left field during his three
seasons in the majors.
The As have used switch-hitting veteran Coco Crisp and
slick-fielding Sam Fuld in left.
The Brewers have acquired several young players since
hiring general manager David Stearns last September.
Shortstop Jean Segura and reliever Francisco Rodriguez are
among the veterans Milwaukee has traded.
Nottingham, who turns 21 in April, hit .316 with 17
home runs and 82 RBIs in Class A last year. He was acquired
by the As in midseason for the deal that sent Scott Kazmir
to Houston where Stearns had been assistant GM.
Derby, who turns 22 later this month, was 1-1 with a 1.21
ERA in 14 total games at the rookie and Class A levels.
The As also designated left-hander Sean Nolin for assignment.

Cain finally healthy, ready to rejoin Giants rotation

By Michael Wagaman

SAN FRANCISCO If the San Francisco

Giants had any lingering concerns about Matt
Cains health, the veteran pitcher helped ease
their minds with one impressive swing on
the golf course.
Playing at Pebble Beach two days before
the start of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am
along with teammates including Buster Posey
and George Kontos, Cain hit a 340-yard drive
shot on No. 18 that helped the Giants beat the
San Francisco 49ers as part of the Chevron
Charity Shootout.
It was a shot that left many spectators
buzzing and had some fans questioning
whether it really happened.
For Cain, it was simply another signal that
after two years of pain and problems in his
pitching elbow, he is finally healthy and
ready to once again be a permanent fixture in
the Giants rotation.
I think Im where I need to be right now,
Cain said Friday on the eve of the Giants

FanFest at AT&T Park.

rhythm and my motion
and what I need to get
done and not getting too
frustrated with beginning.
Its still early.
That hasnt always
Matt Cain
been Cains approach. He
admittedly tried to hurry back following season-ending surgery to remove bone chips and
spurs in his elbow just as the 2014 pennant
race was heating up.
Though Cain was back in time for the start
of spring training last year, he opened on the
disabled list because of a flexor tendon strain,
spent another long stretch on the DL with
nerve irritation in his pitching elbow and finished the season 2-4 with a career-high 5.79
A 16-game winner in 2012 when he
anchored San Franciscos rotation and led the
Giants to the second of three World Series

titles in a five-year span, Cain says the health

issues that bogged him down are no longer a
concern. Hes been doing some throwing in
Arizona and expects to be full-go when the
Giants begin spring training next week.
I like where hes at, San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. Hes in a good place
right now. I dont know where hes going to
pitch as far as in the rotation but I know talking to (head trainer Dave Groeschner) whos
been watching him throw that hes throwing
the ball very well now.
Having Cain healthy for a full season would
be a boon for a pitching staff that is already
shaping up to be one of the best in the
San Francisco added free agents Johnny
Cueto and Jeff Samardzija in the offseason to
pair with ace Madison Bumgarner an 18game winner each of the past two years
and Jake Peavy.
A three-time All-Star who pitched the first
perfect game in franchise history on June
13, 2012, Cain is most likely to wind up at
the back end of the rotation as the fourth or

fifth starter.
That might not be a bad thing if the 31year-old pitcher can regain his form a few
years ago.
The two guys that weve added are perfect
for the situation, are perfect for our clubhouse, Cain said.
As for that 340-yard drive?
It was close, Cain said. We didnt really
mark it off, we were just kind of guessing from
what we had left into the hole. It was really
the 5-iron that George hit next. He hit a 220yard (shot) to get us close to the green and
then we were able to seal the deal with a little
par there and get a win.

work with Cueto and Samardzija in spring
training. Im going to try to catch (them) as
much as I can in spring training to get a feel
for them. ... 2B Joe Panik, whose rookie

penalty box. Not only was Lopez there, so
was Severson. In fact, the two nearly
knocked each other off the ball, but cooler
heads prevailed and Lopez ended up getting
off the shot, slotting it just inside the far
left post for a quick Aragon advantage.
We started out very, very flat, said
Sequoia coach Kevin Huber. I dont know if
its because we didnt have school [Friday]
or what. We beat them 5-1 before. [We]
thought it was a game in the bag.
The Dons dominated the opening 10 minutes, locking the Cherokees into their own
defensive half.
But it didnt take long for Sequoia (7-3-2)
to settle down and turn things around. Seven
minutes later, the game was tied. The
Cherokees caught the Dons pushing too
many players forward and caught them with

a counterattack strike. Jaime Cortez

received a pass near midfield and broke
toward the Aragon goal with only one
defender to beat and Robert Hernandez on
his right flank. Cortez fed Hernandez, who
went around a defender and, from the top of
the penalty box, slotted home a shot that
slipped just inside the far left post to knot
the game at 1.
On that goal, our center midfielder was
pressing too high and they went on a counter, Markoulakis said.
After the two early goals, the game went
back and forth the rest of the half. The Dons
continued to apply pressure on the Sequoia
goal, getting off 11 shots in the first 40
minutes, compared to seven for Sequoia. But
Aragon had the more dangerous chances. A
minute after the Cherokees scored, Aragons
Liam Laird nearly gave the lead right back
to his team, but his effort from 30 yards was
pushed over the top of the goal by Sequoia
goalkeeper Jhosse Prado. In the 22nd
minute, Diaz and Lopez nearly hooked up
again, but Lopez was unable to shake the


defender while trying to trap the ball.

Lopez did get that second goal less than
10 minutes later, however. The Dons used a
good buildup in the midfield, with Diaz
orchestrating the offense. He carried the
ball parallel to the goal, about 40 yards out,
before sending a diagonal through ball
toward the corner. Lopez beat a defender to
the ball, turned the corner and had a step on
said defender. Lopez let loose his shot that
he slipped just inside the far left post to put
the Dons up 2-1.
About two minutes later, Lopez had a
chance for a first-half hat trick, but his shot
from the top of the penalty box flew just
over the goal.
Lopez had another chance to earn his third
goal early in the second half, but again was
just off the mark.
Victor Lopez is a scoring threat any time
he gets on the field, Markoulakis said.
Hes starting to hit his stride, which is
good for us.

I was hesitant to turn [the pitching staff]
over to someone who was 23, Carlmont
manager Rich Vallero said. And he took to
it like it was second nature.
Vallero recalled Madigans first day as a
coach, and how he stressed fitness and
mechanics to all of Carlmonts pitchers.
With his surgical scars still fresh, he made it
very clear the objective was to avoid the
same injury he had endured.
He pretty much told them the first day, I
dont want any of you guys to ever have to
do this, Vallero said.
Vallero may have been guarded about giving the reins of the pitching staff to
Madigan at first. But it wasnt long before
Madigan was running the staff, making visits to the mound and calling all the pitches.
But from Day One, Madigan was integral in
instilling a regiment of fitness and running
akin to the collegiate ranks.
And the Scots staff responded swimmingly, Vallero said.
The kids love him, Vallero said. They
really respected that work ethic and that kind
of rubbed off on them.
Fridays performance was a fine example
of Madigans game when hes going well.
The uber-control pitcher was slicing off corners of the strike zone, establishing three
pitches early with good life on his fastball,
a big break on his curve and a knockout drop
on his slider. And he was razor fine with all


Skyline starting pitcher Daniel Madigan worked seven strong innings to earn the win in
Fridays 5-1 victory over Shasta College.The left-hander threw 104 pitches, his longest outing
since returning from Tommy John surgery this season.
In contrast, Shasta starting pitcher Noah
Sawyer walked 10 through 4 2/3 innings.
And despite taking a no-hitter into the fifth
inning, Skyline had him on the ropes from
the opening frame.
Sawyer escaped a bases-loaded jam in the
first by inducing an inning-ending double
play off the bat of Armando Fajardo. But

then after retiring eight straight batters,

Sawyer again lost his feel for the strike
zone. And this time it caught up with him.
Skyline scratched out its first run in the
fourth, taking advantage of four straight
walks in the inning. It was the free pass to
Chet Silveria that pushed the run across, as
the Trojans catcher took a 3-2 pitch above

M-A came out firing again to start the second half, taking two good shots that both
sailed just high in the opening 10 minutes.
But in the 57th minute, the Bears got a
throw-in opportunity from deep in
Burlingame territory, just shy of a corner
kick, and did not miss the chance.
The throw-in was made by senior Ethan
Oro, who put it to the head of Smith for a
touch into the keepers box to Claverie. The
sophomore wasted little time booting in
the go-ahead score from close range.

We started off pretty strong and got a
couple of shots on goal in the opening minutes, Smith said. Then after we scored we
felt pretty comfortable.
Smith scored on a counterattack by taking
control with a defender jumping up his
back, a common sight throughout the
match. The senior striker took advantage

In the fifth, the Trojans broke up the nohitter with a dying quail off the bat of Neil
Sterling, but the swing of the bat proved to

straight walks set the table. Then with two
outs, Sterling fisted a two-run single to left
field to score Ryan Kammuller and
Aberouette to break up the no-no, and knock
Sawyer out of the game.
Taking a 3-0 lead into the sixth, Skyline
continued to add on. Nick Healey led off the
inning by driving a double off the right-center field wall. Then with one out, Kammuller
shot an RBI single into left to score Healy.
Brett Berghammer followed by lifting a high

27-26. Then leading 29-28, Matsuno and
Brouqua buried back-to-back 3s, both made
possible by strong inside-out distribution.
Just as big as the shooting heroics,
though, Brouquas post presence loomed
large as the 5-8 sophomore produced two
consecutive rebounds to give Mills some
breathing room, including a big grab on the

among bodybuilders. At the time, he said, I

banned substance ended up in my system.
Mejia returned July 12, appeared in seven
games for New York, then was banned for
162 games on July 28 after a positive test
for Stanozolol and Boldenone.
The Mets said they were deeply disappointed. The Major League Baseball
Players Association declined comment, and
a spokesman for Mejias agents said the
pitcher had no comment.
Under pressure from Congress to toughen

the ensuing layup.
The Mustangs still refused to back down,
closing the lead to 35-34 on a Jarod Pasqual
bucket to start the fourth quarter. But another Matsuno 3-pointer sparked a 10-3 run,
giving the Vikings a 45-37 lead with two
minutes to play. Then with the Mustangs
trailing 49-42 with 56 seconds remaining,
they stifled an ill-fated possession by committing a turnover on a bounce-pass out to
the corner for a 3-point attempt, all but ending their chances.
Cap committed 14 turnovers in the game
to Mills six.
We had too many turnovers and their

I think were in for sure, Ruiz said.
Magnis availability for the CCS playoffs
is still questionable though. Ruiz was optimistic about returning his leading scorer for
the postseason opener. But there are no
guarantees with a player with a concussion
being cleared to play.
He will probably be out another week, so
were hoping to get him back in the CCS
game, Ruiz said. Until he gets cleared,
I dont know.
For Mills, the rivalry win marks the end

opener to Hillsdale, despite entering the

miles away from the waves but indulging in
the energy of the crowds at a variety of
viewing parties.
Huddled in front of TVs streaming premium footage from never before seen angles, a
surge of gasps, oohs and praise rang out as
competitors battled it out on frigid El Niofueled swells.
Its awesome! This is like the best thing

Banned from the beach and bluffs, some
appeared less interested in the actual contest. Instead, visitors kicked back at the
harbor nevertheless thrilled to share in the
Some sat peacefully on blankets strewn
near the grass overlooking the Pacific while
watching from cellphones, simply happy
to be enjoying a sunny day with friends.
Billy Posey drove up from Santa Cruz
having purchased VIP tickets to attend the
awards ceremony. Noting many of his
friends were watching the contest from the
comforts of home, Posey said being near
the action was worth every penny.
Its awesome, especially the crowd that it
brings in, Posey said, noting hed hopped
from various viewing parties and even
stepped out to watch on his phone. Its
totally worth it. I dont mind watching it on
a little TV because its still a good time.
Wed rather be here and watch it; the environment is a big part of it. Being in Half
Moon Bay, the energy is awesome.
Recalling the last time visitors were
allowed to view from the beach during
the 2010 contest hyped as one of the largest
days in the events 17-year-history when a
rogue wave washed ashore breaking bones
as it knocked down spectators Posey was
sympathetic with why organizers and law
enforcement kept people from getting too

You can see where the cliff is wearing

away. And the swell, it washes out any
trash. So its good to keep people out,
Posey said. Because not everyone respects
the ocean like they should.
Other first-time visitors were disappointed not to get a glimpse of the break, unable
to sneak past the slew of sheriffs deputies
blocking access to the beach.
Jessica Nilsson, a native of Sweden who
picnicked on the coast with her brother and
sister-in-law visiting from overseas, said
theyd hoped to get a little closer to the
once-in-a-lifetime chance.
But still, just sitting here, its an experience being around all these people,
Nilsson said with a smile. Just to be able to
say weve been here and done this!
Outdoor viewing parties were held at the
crowded Half Moon Bay Brewing Company
where the line for seating frequently
stretched out the door. The Old Princeton
Landing had several screens barely audible
over the excited crowd.
Others stood outside the Mavericks Surf
Shop where a military-style Red Bull truck
outfitted with three screens and speakers
broadcast its exclusive coverage of the contest.
Cassandra Clark, wife of renowned
Mavericks maven Jeff Clark who was the
first to surf the treacherous break decades
ago and now sits on the Committee of 5 that
handpicks competitors, was hard at work as

eager visitors bought T-shirts to commemorate their trip.

Its been great so far. Even though we put
the word out the beach and bluffs were
closed, theres been a lot of people coming
through and we were really lucky to have
Red Bull bring their video cam up here and
broadcast it live outside the shop, Clark
said. So its made for a lot of energy and fun
and a community feel. Which is a nice,
smaller way to celebrate. I can imagine that
at different restaurants and bars it feels more
like a Super Bowl party or watching the
Giants play.
Despite Friday not bringing the best conditions known to hit Mavericks some
were still frustrated last weekends pristine
waves had to be passed up due to the Super
Bowl and U.S. Air Forces blackout dates
most were pleased just to be part of history
as the first revamped Titans of Mavericks
came to a close.

Landing with friends who ditched work and
traveled from the East Bay.
This is really exciting, Pittenger said.
The anticipation of seeing it live, we left
the house at 7 a.m. and road our bikes 5
miles just to be here and be part of it.

The event has been canceled four times

including last year since 1999 because of
lack of waves. The contest was last held in
January 2014.

The swells travel through deep water for

days before hitting a section of shallow reef
that juts into the sea. When the swell hits
the reef, the wave jumps up and crashes back
down violently, then washes through craggy rocks.

The live crowd overwhelmed the beach.

About a dozen people were injured after a
wave knocked spectators into the water.
Spectators now have to watch online.
This seasons invitees are all male, but
that could change.
The California Coastal Commission last
year told organizers to have a plan to
include women if they want a permit to hold
the event next season.

Surfers received the call Tuesday, when

many had gathered in Hawaii to participate
in another renowned surfing contest. The

before it was supposed to take place because
of undersized breakers.

Love is in the air

By Kelly Song

Thats not to say that there arent

moments when youll laugh out loud, especially when your favorite celebrity or
designer appears for a cameo (is there anyone Stiller COULDNT get to appear in his
film?) But eventually youll start to feel like
your smile is sort of freezing on your face
(Botox or no Botox); in your heart, youve
just stopped laughing.
But boy, those cameos. We begin with
none other than Justin Bieber, chased

oses are red, violets are blue.

Here is one heart for me, and one
heart for you.
On the morning of Feb. 11, amidst
sleepy eyes and hands clutching coffee
cups, students at Carlmont High School
stumbled toward their first class to an unexpected surprise: Across the hallways of
campus, over 2,000 paper hearts were dangling from the ceiling, an expanse of pink
and red stretching as far as the eye can see.
Written on them was the name of every
student and teacher on
campus, individual
Valentines Day cards
hand-assembled by
their very own
classmates, a paper
token of gratitude
for every person
on campus.
This strange
yet breathtaking sight was created by the students of Carlmont
High School as a widespread
effort to recognize their peers
on Valentines Day. The project
was started by the new Service
Council at Carlmont, a subset
of the existing student government on campus introduced just
this year. The Service Council was
created to initiate the idea of exhibiting empathy to every student and
teacher, and to spread a spark of acceptance and community among every person on campus.
On each paper heart was one handwritten name and a personalized
message, created months ahead of
time in secrecy. Then on the night
before Feb. 11, they are strung
from the ceiling of the central hallway by members of the council, and the
next morning a sea of hearts is revealed to
the students and teachers of Carlmont. The
cards are a reminder to every member of the
school they are equally cherished and recognized by their peers, a loving symbol of
acceptance. They are one heart from one
person, a pledge of friendship and gratitude
from student to another.
The hearts dangling from the ceiling of
C-hall at Carlmont are simply sheets of
paper, but they remind us of our broader
need for shared love, our unity in a place so
often filled with differences. The simplicity
of the paper cards capture something for
which humanity should always grasp: There
is value in every person, biology teacher
or artistic student, tireless janitor or cheerful principal. There is no one person on

Zoolander 2 tries too hard

By Jocelyn Noveck

In case you dont follow the global fashion calendar, Fashion Week has just begun
in New York, bringing with it a few nice
clothes plus the usual over-the-top weirdness bizarrely themed runway shows and
front-row fashionistas teetering on stiltlike heels, swathed in feathers and
smoothed out with dangerous doses of
Not coincidentally, Ben Stillers

Zoolander 2 also opens this week, sporting everything we just mentioned except
maybe the few nice clothes.
Of course, unlike Fashion Week, every
element of Zoolander 2, both directed and
co-written by Stiller, is aimed at being silly
and ridiculous like the original 15 years
ago, yet more so. And yet more so ends up
being the problem. This sequel ups the ante
so aggressively and relentlessly that you
may find yourself pining for a relaxing
night in front of a 2001-era TV, watching
the original on a VHS tape.

As Force Awakens winds down, Avatar remains supreme

By Jake Coyle

NEW YORK Two months after opening

to unprecedented fanfare, Star Wars: The
Force Awakens is finally winding down in
theaters, leaving behind arsenals of plastic
lightsabers and a trail of box-office records.
The Force Awakens is still playing in
more than 2,000 theaters in North America
and remains ranked in the top-five at the

box office as it enters its ninth week of

release. But the lions share of its theatrical
revenue has been pocketed, and one thing is
abundantly clear: its not going to touch
Regardless of further receipts, The Force
Awakens (currently with $2.008 billion
worldwide) will slot in at No. 2 all-time on
the global box office list, if you dont
account for inflation or rereleases. Thats
slightly ahead of James Camerons

Titanic ($1.84 billion before a later 3-D

release pushed it to $2.18 billion) but light
years behind Avatar ($2.79 billion).
The Force Awakens was by any measure
a massive hit: a full-blown if prepackaged
cultural phenomenon that drove moviegoers en masse to theaters in a way that some
thought was no longer possible in an
increasingly multi-screen media world. It
has already made the Walt Disney Co. heaps
of cash and it has set the franchise up to

reap oodles more in merchandising, theme

park attractions and sequels.
But even the most colossal hit of the
decade one with all the firepower of
arguably the movies biggest franchise
was no match for Camerons 2009 3-D sensation. Though some forecast The Force
Awakens to rival Avatar and possibly
become the first $3 billion movie, that

How to Be Single is a romantic

comedy that diminishes romance
By Jake Coyle

Momentarily untied from 50 Shades of

Grey and its planned sequels, Dakota
Johnson is again looking for love in How
to Be Single, a mild and fittingly discombobulated ode to singlehood that plays like
a Sex and the City spinoff.
Were back in that rom-com bastion
New York: the fairy tale, cobblestoned version with a quartet of female archetypes
who live in questionably affordable
Manhattan apartments, and in a story that
revolves around one character (Johnson)
prone to occasional inner-monologue narration. The connection isnt kismet; How to
Be Single is based on the 2008 novel by
Liz Tuccillo, a former Sex and the City
But if the set-up is overly conventional,
How to Be Single inverts some of the
standard beats of the romantic comedy
enough to give it a not-as-bad-as-youexpected charm derived considerably from
its appealing cast.
Why do we always tell our stories
through relationships? asks Alice
(Johnson), at the films start. Shes a young
paralegal who, fearful that she has missed
out on real life in the in-between moments
by always jumping from one relationship to
another, tells her longtime boyfriend
(Nicholas Braun) that they must split.
Hers is one of four approaches to single
life. Providing raunchy humor and an overthe-top embrace of promiscuity is Alices
co-worker Robin (Rebel Wilson, spirited if
overdoing it). Alices older sister, an obstetrician named Meg (Leslie Mann), plays the
part of the careerist woman pining for a
baby. And then theres Lucy (Alison Brie), a
picky, computer-dating, marriage-crazed
woman who remains curiously unconnected
to the others, an awkwardly added-on character in the script by Abby Kohn, Marc

Silverstein and Dana Fox.

The group is largely confined to the
Meatpacking District, but their escapades
are all over the map. There are the comic
one-night stands of Robin, the pregnancy
trials of Meg and Lucys flirting with her
frankly relationship-phobic bartender
(Anders Holm). All variously gravitate
toward and rebel against the pressure to pair
off and marry.
From scene to scene, How to Be Single
scrolls through tones like a Tinder search,
jumping from romance to penis jokes to
most jarring of all the pain of a widower
father (Damon Wayons Jr., as a boyfriend of
Alices). The key here is the winsome
Johnson, an assured actress at home in any
of the comic or dramatic shifts of the film.
Friends, Bridget Jones and Sex and
the City are all explicitly referenced, just
in case anyone wasnt sure of the genre.
How to Be Single is best, though, when it
pivots from the predictable when the
seemingly destined kiss from an exboyfriend turns to heartache, or when a
dreamy-eyed Alice gets into a taxi and wistfully says shes going home, only to be
barked at by the cabbie who demands an How to Be Single inverts some of the standard beats of the romantic comedy enough to
actual address.
give it a not-as-bad-as-you-expected charm derived considerably from its appealing cast.
Directed by Christian Ditter, How to Be
Single deserves credit for fashioning a
romantic comedy that diminishes romance
and elevates independence, even if its
vision of solitude is a shallow version of
me time.
But its time to request a maritime on
glossy New York-set rom coms, where
quirky redemption is always found in a
bohemian Brooklyn apartment. There must,
surely, be single women in Ohio.
How to Be Single, a Warner Bros.
release, is rated R by the Motion Picture
Association of America for sexual content
and strong language throughout. Running
time: 110 minutes. Two and a half stars out
of four.

Even before controversy, blacks

cool to Academy Awards telecast
By David Bauder

NEW YORK The largest black audience

for the Academy Awards over the last dozen
years came in 2005, when Chris Rock was
host and Jamie Foxx and Morgan Freeman
won the top male acting awards.
Rock will be back as host this year, but
its an open question how many black viewers will be tuning in. A lack of diversity in
Oscar nominations have led to stars like
Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith saying
they wont attend the Academy Awards on
Feb. 28.
The years most popular awards show is
generally not a must-see event in black
households: The share of blacks watching
the Oscars is smaller than it is for a typical
prime-time TV program, although it exceeds
that for the Golden Globes or Emmy awards.
African-American viewers watch shows
that they can relate to, said Darnell Hunt,
director of UCLAs Ralph J. Bunche Center
for African American Studies. When you
have African-American nominees, theyre
usually excited about the prospect of them
winning and they tune in in larger numbers.
That was certainly the case in 2005, when
5.3 million blacks watched the Oscars. That
made up 12.2 percent of the shows audience
that year. The Academy Awards hasnt made it
up to that level since, hitting a low of 6.6
percent in 2011. According to the U.S.
Census Bureau, blacks comprise 13.2 percent of the U.S. population. Blacks tend to
watch more TV than other ethnic groups and
in February 2015, when the last Academy
Awards were broadcast, blacks made up on
average 15 percent of the audience for primetime shows, the Nielsen company said.

With diversity among Oscar nominees an

issue last year, too, Nielsen said 3.3 million
blacks watched the Oscars, down from 4.1
million in 2014. The annual BET awards,
which honor cultural work popular in the
black community, was watched by 5.5 million blacks last year. Thats 89 percent of
the shows total audience of 6.3 million.
Callie Crossley, a cultural commentator
for WGBH-TV in Boston who has talked
about the Oscars, said she initially questioned whether a boycott of black viewers
would gain traction. But in talking with several friends about the issue, Crossley was
taken aback at the amount of anger she
The topic may not have blown up into a
controversy had there been few award-worth
performances by non-whites, although that
would have been an issue for the film industry by itself. When the popular Straight
Outta Compton and acting performances by
Will Smith and Idris Elba all received preOscars buzz, the lack of diversity was more
Crossley said she was heartened that the
Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and
Sciences, in announcing changes to its
membership rules, has already taken more
action toward increasing diverse representation than it did last year. But she said it
appeared the academy had suffered real damage among black viewers who might be
interested in the ceremony and it may take
time to regain trust.
Film isnt the only area in entertainment
where diversity has been an issue and, as a
result, may illustrate why the general interest awards shows dont appear to hold a great
deal of interest on a regular basis among
black viewers.

mountain, looking down and saying, Just

senior media analyst for comScore. Thats
a record thats going to stand for a long
time. And we know it now more than ever.
Though The Force Awakens set a record
in North America ($906. 7 million and
counting), it was less of a phenomenon in
some overseas territories. Most notably in
China, where Star Wars doesnt have the
same history with moviegoers. Had The

have toppled Avatar.

Its just one more example of how box
office rankings dont take into account
countless variables (inflation, ticket
prices, media competition) that affect every
release. Adjust for inflation and the record
domestic haul of The Force Awakens, is
dwarfed by 1939s Gone With the Wind,
which made approximately $1.7 billion in
North America in inflation-adjusted dollars.
Each era has its own mega blockbusters.
Were taking a little more time just to
appreciate the run and the response without
paying too much attention to ranking and
ratings, said Dave Hollis, head of distribution for Disney. Theres still business to
be had in this run and possibly if we decide
to do a reissue of this film now or ahead of
Episode VIII, or whatever it might be.
Regardless, the $4 billion investment
Disney made when it purchased LucasFilm is
already looking like a bargain, and the
mammoth success of The Force Awakens
in movie theaters is only part of it.

Analysts expect merchandizing revenues

West debuted his album at the Yeezy Season

song called, Famous, in which he called the
Bad Blood singer a bitch and said he made
her famous.
On his Twitter account, he said the lyric was
not an insult. I did not diss Taylor Swift and

the Planning Commission, consultant Laura Russell wrote in a report to
the Planning Commission.
Its an effort to keep mom-and-pop
businesses from being displaced as
commercial rents soar. Mayor
Cameron Johnson proposed the temporary ban back in November with
rumors that a Jamba Juice was interested in opening up downtown.
Councilman Mark Olbert, however,
opposes the changes.
After talking to residents, business
and property owners, and outside
experts, Ive come to the conclusion
we dont need this particular change to
the long-standing, successful partnership between our community and its

Crab fishing remained unsafe
throughout most of the state until
Thursday, when the California
Department of Public Health declared
all areas south of Point Reyes safe for
recreational Dungeness crab fishing,
but crab fishing remains prohibited in
northern areas.
Some state fishermen have said they
want to wait until the whole state tests
clean before commercial season
opens. The California Dungeness Crab
Task Force may make a decision on
whether to open commercial crab fishing on Tuesday during a conference call
to discuss the matter.
The task force may decide then to
open each area separately to commercial Dungeness crab fishing, Fish and
Traverso said.
It would take at least seven days for
the commercial season to open after
the start of the recreational season,
Traverso said.

businesses. While its intent sounds
reasonable, I believe it does not
address the concerns and interests of
either our business owners or our residents, Olbert wrote in an email.
If the rules were already in place,
businesses such as Nothing Bundt
Cakes, the UPS store and Peets Coffee
and Tea might have been denied a
storefront, Olbert said.
But Johnson said its more about letting the public weigh in on what types
of stores or establishments are best
suited for downtown.
The growing economy is putting a
lot of pressure on smaller businesses.
This gives the public the opportunity
to have its say when a new chain store
wants to move in downtown,
Johnson said Friday.
New developments such as Wheeler
Plaza will displace about a dozen storefronts occupied by individual owners,
he said.
Councilman Matt Grocott thinks
Johnsons plan is a step in the right
The requirement for chain stores to
secure a conditional use permit could
offer some protections to individuals
who own small businesses, he said.
Councilman Bob Grassilli also
thinks the public should have a say it

what types of stores do business downtown.

Nobody likes change and our town
is changing. Laurel Street is terrific.
We just want to make sure we dont get
ahead ourselves and slow it down just a
touch, Grassilli said Friday about
approving new businesses downtown.
The San Carlos Chamber of
Commerce, however, has yet to discuss the proposal but will at its next
board meeting.
I have no idea what direction the
board will take, chamber President
David Bouchard said.
Currently, there are 22 storefronts in
downtown occupied by formula businesses and 11 storefronts that have
multiple locations in the region.
All a chain store has to do now,
depending on the type, to operate
downtown is to secure a building permit for any structural or interior tenant
improvements, a sign permit and a
business license, according to the city
For Johnson, its an effort to maintain the soul of downtown.

Tim Sloane, executive director of

the Pacific Coast Federation of
Fishermans Associations, said the
proposal to wait until the whole state
tests clean before opening commercial season was proposed by the public health department officials,
California Department of Fish and
Wildlife officials and commercial
Fishermen were thinking of public
health and the future of fishing when
they made the proposal, he said. If
someone got sick, it could be disastrous to Dungeness crab fishing.
Exposure to domoic acid can potentially cause nausea, dizziness and, in
severe cases, trouble breathing, confusion, seizures, short-term memory
loss, coma or even death. There have
been no illnesses from crab reported
this year.
Sloane said crabs might migrate
from unsafe areas to areas declared safe
for recreational fishing and commercial fishermen did not want to take that
But the flip side is that guys want to
go fishing, he said. Fishermen have
made a big investment in this season
with among other things, new boats

and new permits, which are expensive.

I dont think anyone expected the
closure to last this long, he said. Its
gone incredibly late.
Crabbing has been the most productive part of fishing for fisherman for a
decade, Sloane said.
After a lousy salmon season in
2015, guys were looking to make their
living on crabs, he said.
Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday asked
the federal government to declare a
commercial fisheries disaster, saying
the delay in Dungeness crab fishing
has cost the state economy $48.3 million. Traverso said if the commercial
season does open that could affect the
amount of industry damage.
The Dungeness crab season typically ends in June or mid-July, Traverso
said. But the biggest parts of the fishing season are over the holiday seasons around Thanksgiving and
Christmas, New Years and the Chinese
New Year, she said.
This was a totally, totally novel
experience for everyone, Sloane said
of the seasons closure. He said the
only other time a domoic acid outbreak
closed the season was in 1991 and that
was for a week.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of San Bruno, California (the City) at its regular meeting on Tuesday,
February 23, 2016, at the Senior Center starting at 7:00 p.m.
at 1555 Crystal Springs Road, San Bruno, will hold a Public
Hearing regarding a request for an amendment to a Development Plan, a Planned Development Permit, and an Architectural Review Permit to allow the construction of a new 67,586
square foot, three-story, office building with 215 parking
spaces per Chapter 12.136, 12.96.190, and 12.108 of the San
Bruno Municipal Code, and the adoption of a Mitigated Negative Declaration. The City Council will also consider the installation of a red curb along the north side of Grundy Lane.
The City Council will consider the following actions to approve
the proposed office development located at 1250 Grundy lane,
and associated environmental determinations:
(1) Adopt a Resolution adopting the Mitigated
Negative Declaration and Mitigation Monitoring and
Reporting Program.
(2) Waive first reading and introduce an Ordinance
amending and replacing the existing Development
Plan for 1250 Grundy Lane.
(3) Adopt a Resolution approving the installation of a
red curb along the north side of Grundy Lane.

with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the City
contracted with an Environmental Consultant for the preparation of a draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration. The
draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration included a
traffic study, and analysis of the required elements (air quality,

Negative Declaration was open for public review for one
month from November 24, 2015 to December 23, 2015, per
CEQA requirements. The draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration determined that the proposed project would
not have a significant effect on the environment with the implementation of mitigation measures.

ordinance is available during business hours in the City Clerk's
