The city is looking forward to the

Tourism growth
drives South City
City budget fills with record
amount of hotel tax revenue
By Austin Walsh

South San Franciscos city budget continued reaping the

benefits of travelers accessing the Peninsulas thriving
economy through the gateway of San Francisco
International Airport, according to a recent report.
Tax revenue increases fueled by growth in the tourism
industry helped push the citys general fund end balance to
$21.4 million, up 3.7 percent from the previous fiscal year,
according to a comprehensive annual financial report presented Wednesday, Feb. 25, to the City Council.
The report, which detailed the fiscal year ending June 30,
2015, credited last years economic success largely to visitors filling South San Francisco hotel rooms, resulting in
an influx of transient occupancy tax revenue to the city.
Just short of $13 million worth of transient occupancy,

SAN MATEO and BANGOR, ME - Mary Ellen (Chalmers)
Weldon, 85, passed away peacefully at home in Bangor,
Maine, on February 24, 2016. She was born July 18, 1930, in
Bangor, the daughter of Philip and Mary (Stowe) Chalmers.

Mary Ellen (or Mel to family and friends) was a graduate

of Bangor High School and of the University of Maine, Class
of 1952. She was married for nearly fty years (until his
death) to Scott Weldon, whose career in the paper industry
brought them and their growing family to various parts
of the country, including Swarthmore, PA, Detroit, MI, Haddoneld, NJ, Millinocket,
ME, Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ, and lastly San Mateo, CA, where they lived for twenty-ve years.
Throughout, Mel remained a good-humored and supportive helpmate to her husband, a
loving, devoted, and ercely loyal mother to her three children, a proud and generous
grandmother, and delightful company to her friends. She was also a skilled cook and
candy-maker, had a special talent for needlework and doll-making, and was a gracious
hostess. In recent years, she shared her daughters home, which was also her own
childhood home, in Bangor.
Mary Ellen is survived, and will be sadly missed, by daughter Ann (Weldon) Blanke and
husband Richard of Bangor; by son Mark Weldon and wife Judy of Liverpool, NY; by
grandchildren Marie (Blanke) Andrawes and husband Michael of Newton, MA; Emily
(Weldon) Davcev and husband Tim of Rochester, NY; Claire (Blanke) Enkosky and
husband John of Syracuse, NY; Kate (Weldon) Chan and husband Brian of Woodbridge,
ON, Canada; Scott G. Weldon of Liverpool, NY; Samantha Weldon of Weatherford, TX;
Friedrich Blanke and wife Sheryl of Glenburn, ME; granddaughter-in-law Gina Platt of
Seal Harbor, ME; and by eight great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by husband
Scott Weldon, son Matthew Weldon, and grandson Roman Blanke.
The family wishes to give special thanks to the care-givers from the Aging Excellence
agency who cared so conscientiously for Mary Ellen during her declining years - in
particular, Jennifer La Taille, Jackie Taylor, Suzanne Folsom, Lauren Colson, and
especially Valerie Dyer, whose affectionate care and devoted labor went well beyond
the call of duty. The family would also like to thank Sheryl Blanke and the other
Eastern Maine Visiting Nurses who tended to Mel during her nal months.
Interment will be in Oak Grove Cemetery, Bangor. The family will hold a memorial
service for Mel at a later date, to be announced. Those who wish to remember her
in a special way may make gifts in her memory to the Scott and Mary Ellen Weldon
Memorial Scholarship Fund, care of the University of Maine Foundation, 2 Alumni
Place, Orono, ME 04469-5972. Condolences to the family may be expressed at www. A service of Brookings-Smith, Bangor.

stricter enforcement for wasteful users.

For the month of January, the conservation rate was 17. 1 percent less when compared to the same period in 2013. Thats
down from Decembers savings rate.
A strong El Nino weather pattern this
year has brought parts of the state up to
normal levels of rain and snow, but fallen
short of the big storms that state officials
say would be needed to bring California
out of drought.
California cities and towns overall have
saved 1. 1 million acre feet of water since
January, putting them at 96 percent of
another state conservation goal. Thats
enough to supply water to between 1 million and 2 million households for a year.

Husband of Brittany Maynard

lobbies for N.Y. right-to-die bill
By David Klepper

ALBANY, N.Y. Dan Diaz has lobbied

lawmakers across the country and gone on
Oprah, all to fulfill a promise to his late
wife, Brittany Maynard, who put a face on
the debate over allowing terminally ill
patients to seek life-ending drugs.
On Thursday, Diaz was in Albany to tell
Maynards story again, this time to New
York lawmakers considering a right-to-die
bill. Maynard attracted national attention
in 2014 when, at age 29, she moved to
Oregon to legally end her life after she
was diagnosed with a brain tumor and
given six months to live. She died later
that year.
Last year, 24 states introduced legislation, and in almost all of them, they men-

tioned Brittany, he told

the Associated Press.
The impact she had ...
she was the star. Im just
doing what I can.
The New York legislation would allow terminally ill people to
request life-ending drugs

doctors would have to
certify that the patient is competent to make
the decision, and physicians could refuse to

California resolves long-running

lawsuit over youth prisons
SACRAMENTO California on Thursday
resolved a long-running lawsuit over poor
care at juvenile prisons, and both sides said
conditions have greatly improved.
An Alameda County judge approved an
agreement between the parties to dismiss a
2003 lawsuit against what was then called
the California Youth Authority.
The system was known then for imposing
long periods of solitary confinement and
employees frequent use of pepper spray
against youthful offenders.
California has since dramatically reduced
the population of what is now known as the
Division of Juvenile Justice, from about
10,000 youth nine years ago to about 700
Theyve come a very long way, and
theyve made some remarkable transformations, said Sara Norman, an attorney with
the nonprofit Prison Law Office that filed
the lawsuit. We do have some concerns
about some ongoing problems, but we are
confident that they have the tools they need
to continue to improve.

Reckoning ahead
for some incumbents
at Democratic convention
SACRAMENTO California Democrats
are meeting this weekend to strategize, hear
from top party officials and a few will be
jockeying for the partys critical endorsement ahead of this years elections.
A handful of incumbents face a reckoning
from fellow Democrats who are upset with
positions they have taken.
Among them is Assemblywoman Cheryl
Brown of San Bernardino.
She faces an unexpected challenge from
the left this year as political fallout for her
moderate votes. Environmentalists, labor
organizations and advocates of stricter gun
laws are teaming up to try to unseat her.
Congressmen Mike Honda of San Jose and
Ami Bera of Elk Grove also are still seeking
their partys endorsements.
Bera is answering to union interests for
his support of President Barack Obamas

From left, Sen. Marco Rubio, Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz speak at the debate sponsored by CNN.

Rubio and Cruz go hard after Trump

By Nancy Benac
and Jullie Bykowicz

HOUSTON Brawling from the getgo, a fiery Marco Rubio went hard after
Donald Trump in Thursday nights
Republican debate, lacerating the
front-runners position on immigration, his privileged background, his
speaking style and more.
Ted Cruz piled on, too, questioning
the front-runners conservative credentials, as the two senators tag-teamed
Trump in a debate that reflected the
increasing urgency of their effort to
take down the billionaire businessman
before he becomes unstoppable. It was
a rare night where the bombastic
Trump found himself on the defensive.
The two-hours-plus debate played
out as a raucous night of tit-for-tat
insults, with candidates shouting over
one another so much that it was hard to
follow at times. The showdown came

just days before the Super Tuesday 11state round of mega-voting that could
all but lock up the nomination.
When Trump faulted Rubio on a deal
to buy a $179,000 house, the Florida
senator shot back that if Trump hadnt
inherited $200 million, you know
where Donald Trump would be right
now? Selling watches in Manhattan.
In another rough exchange, Rubio
accused Trump of shifting his position
on deportation, hiring people from
other countries to take jobs from
Americans and being fined for worker
violations. Joining in, Cruz criticized
Trump for suggesting he alone had
discovered the issue of illegal immigration.
Trump shot back at Rubio: I hired
tens of thousands of people. Youve
hired nobody.
As for Cruz, Trump took a more personal tack, touting his own ability to
get along with others and adding:
You get along with nobody. ... You

should be ashamed of yourself.

Both Rubio and Cruz said that Trump
had had to pay a $1 million fine for
illegal immigration hiring.
The candidates were pressed on why
they havent released their tax returns
as promised. The GOPs 2012 nominee, Mitt Romney, suggested this
week that Trump was holding back
because there was a bombshell that
would be revealed.
Trump said hes been audited by the
IRS every year and cant release his
returns while thats going on.
Rubio and Cruz both promised to
release more of theirs in the next two
Rubio was the principal aggressor of
the night, and he held nothing back.
Taking on Trumps declaration that
hed build a wall on the Mexican border, Rubio declared: If he builds a wall
the way he built Trump Tower hell be

As Sanders and fellow Democratic presidential candidate
Hillary Clinton jockey for support from black and Latino
voters ahead of Saturdays South Carolina primary, much of
the debate has centered around which candidate has a

An eye-opening study trip

By Sam Hindi

ourteen days, three countries,

eight elected Arab-American
public servants, 25 meetings
with broad and diverse spectrum of
ambassadors, policy makers, business people, non-governmental
organizations, strategic studies institutes, American universities and visits
to three refugee camps summarize my
trip to the United Arab Emirates,
Egypt and Lebanon as a member of
the Arab American Institutes
Leadership Council. The purpose of
the trip was to gain better understanding of the regions culture, challenges, opportunities and bilateral
relationships with the United States.
There is so much more to share than
this allotted space so I will emphasize
on what impressed me the most in
each country and how it relates to us
in our community and the country.
Weve all heard and probably seen
some of the United Arab Emirates
construction and development especially in Dubai, home to the tallest
building in the world, the Burj Kalifa.
U.S. Ambassador Barbara Leaf and her
team of political and economic advisors briefed our delegation and taught
us that not only is the UAE an important U.S. ally but it is our largest trading partner in the region. Meeting
with HE Dr. Amal Al Qubaisi, Speaker
of the Federal National Council, and
other Emirati ofcials we learned how
the UAE is implementing an ambitious strategic initiative to diversify
its revenue and be independent of oil
revenue by the year 2030. Although it
pales in scale, diversifying our revenue and being highly dependent on
property taxes is one of the priorities
I will be working on tirelessly this
year. Have you heard of Masdar City?
Its the UAEs sustainable community
using renewable energy and built
exclusively from recycled materials.
Interestingly, they use the same slogan as Foster City; live, work and
play. Dr. Al Qubaisi was just one of
the female leaders I met in the UAE, a
country leading the region in its
efforts to empower Emirati women
leaders in government, business and
all sectors of the society. Based on

my observation,
the women in the
UAE are doing an
excellent job.
While the UAE is
a young country,
Egypt is very rich
in its history, culture and contribution to civilization. Egypt and its
stability are extremely important to
international trade and U.S. interest
vis-a-vis the Suez Canal and the fact it
has the largest population in the Arab
world, as we learned during our meeting with Steven Beecroft, U.S.
ambassador to Egypt. The country is
currently going through a very sensitive period. The threat of terrorism in
Egypt is real but it is unfortunate it
seems the population is being asked
to choose between security and civil
rights and freedom. I hope we will
never entertain that in the United
States and Im thankful and appreciative for the security and freedom we
take for granted. Whats more worrisome is that more than 45 percent of
the population is under 35 and they
are not being heard or given the
opportunity to play a role in determining the countrys future. That is a
recipe for disaster.
The third country we visited was
Lebanon, where I was born and raised
prior to immigrating to the United
States. Being away from Lebanon for
some years, I was excited and this trip
gave me a different perspective.
Lebanon never ceases to amaze me
with its resiliency; decades of civil
war and now hosting more than 1.5
million Syrian refugees for a country
with a population of 4.5 million. To
put it in perspective, these numbers
equate to the United States hosting
106 million refugees. Yet somehow
Lebanon survives on insufcient
assistance from the underfunded
United Nations Relief and Works
Agency and the international community. The highlights of this trip were
the visits to the refugee camps; they
were also the most heartbreaking
experiences. We visited the Shatila
and Burj El Barajneh refugee camps in
Beirut. The inhabitants of Burj El
Barajneh are mostly Palestinian

Elephants in the room

refugees from 1948, and it was disheartening to witness the conditions
of the camps and to see that the situation has deteriorated since my last
visit in 1980 from terrible to horrendous. The population of the camp has
doubled since 2011 and the beginning
of the Syrian war. It is estimated that
between 20,000 to 40,000 Syrians
have come to Shatila camp, an area of
1 square kilometer.
Although Ive been following the
human suffering of the Syrian war for
the past ve years, I was not prepared
for what I saw during our visit to
Barelias Syrian refugee camp in the
Bekaa Valley. The blue tents supplied
by the United Nations High
Commission for Refugees make the
difference between the Palestinian
camps we visited in Beirut and the
new Syrian camps very evident. The
living conditions in Barelias camp
are appalling, and the refugees lack
access to their basic needs and medical care. Hearing the stories of the
children and their parents rsthand
brought tears to our eyes.
This trip has impacted me on a personal, professional and human level.
Sometimes we tend to forget how
great our country is regardless of the
challenges we have. Here in Foster
City or the Peninsula in general, its
important to recognize that no matter
what we believe our growing pains
are, they pale in comparison to so
many. Tolerance, community and
diversity are the foundation for the
strength of character of a people and
the quality of their place.
I would be remiss if I did not thank
the Arab American Institute for inviting me to be part of the Arab
American Leadership Council and my
colleagues in the delegation for their
friendship and for making this trip an
exceptional experience.
Sam Hindi is a member of the Foster
City Council.

Apple versus the government
Categorically, Apple should never
agree to creating a special accessible
version of their products. This is just
a ploy from government agencies to
get companies to install a backdoor.

to an iPhone that they have. Why

t was quite a turnout at Mondays town hall meeting

organized by U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo,
at St. Bartholomews Church in San Mateo. Shared
were stories about displacement caused by ever-rising
rents and calls from property owner groups to make sure
proposals like rent control do not move forward. The two
sides are a bit trenched and what has become clear is that
there arent any easy solutions to the jobs/housing imbalance in this area.
Daily Journal readers are familiar with the stories of
families and individuals facing enormous rent increases in
recent years and even evictions caused by building sales.
Speier too has heard those stories, which prompted her to
call the meeting.
The situation in San Mateo County is dire. It requires
the community as a whole, including city councilmembers, Realtors, landlords, state legislators and federal legislator to develop solutions, she said.
One idea Speier had was similar to LifeLine for discounted phone service to eligible households. A case could be
made for caps on rents for seniors or the disabled and
Speier said she is willing to work on it with local ofcials.
It has to be their idea, but
certainly we can sow the
seed, she said.
San Mateo County
Supervisor Dave Pine, who
attended the meeting, said he
appreciated the new ideas that
were brought forward but said
there hasnt been one single
solution, which he described
as perplexing.
The county has formed the
Closing the Jobs/Housing
Gap Task Force to address the
situation, but Pine said the
emphasis is more on increasing housing supply rather than widespread changes to tenant protection measures.
So its an argument between rent control and the free
market and even ideas like just cause eviction requirements draw concern by property owner groups.
Theres very little discussion about something in
between, said Pine, adding its always the elephant in the
room at these meetings.
So while the conversation is becoming more open, it
doesnt seem as if there is any growing traction on measures like rent control or rent stabilization, unless, of
course, it comes from the electorate. And even so, increasing housing supply usually means increasing density, and
thats a whole other elephant in the room.
This years Tour de Peninsula will not take place, and
thats OK.
The perennial bicycling event that began in 1991 has,
as its godfather (my phrase) Mark Simon put it, a
serendipitous and peripatetic history. It was spawned from
Simons newspaper column at the now defunct Peninsula
Times-Tribune in which he milked a few missives out of
a faux Tour de Peninsula which he envisioned as our local
version of the Tour de France, which American cyclist
Greg LeMond had just won. Turns out a friend of Simons,
Rick Sutton, grew tired of his columns and told him to put
the rubber on the road. The rst event was a loop around
Stanford University attended by about 150 people. It grew
once Simon landed a job at the San Francisco Chronicle
and, in recent years, has been organized by the San Mateo
County Parks Foundation as a fundraiser.
Putting it on has become quite an undertaking, and new
Executive Director Michele Beasley said the foundation
board decided to take a year off and reassess it to allow her
to focus on her new responsibilities. That includes focusing more on particular projects designed to bring more
people into the countys parks like a shuttle service and
mini cabins for some overnight stays.
For Beasley, its a refresh button.
The board recognized the tour is a very popular event,
well-loved and well-attended and that its a big disappointment that it wont be happening this year. But we will be
bringing people together to reassess how things could
work in 2017, she said. So we are hitting a refresh button. Its an opportunity to take a step back and think
strategically about this events success in the future.
Its not the rst break for the event, known more for its
fun than its competition. Simon said it took some time
off in between its different incarnations and the fact that
its lasted this long is astonishing.
Its entirely understandable, he said. Their rationale
is logical and legitimate.
And, by the way, for those unfamiliar with Simons
robust lexicon, peripatetic means traveling from place to
place, especially working or based in various places for
relatively short periods.

Stocks post solid gain on rising oil prices

By Ken Sweet



NEW YORK A late-day surge

pushed U.S. stocks sharply higher
Thursday, propelled by a recovery

Stocks had been flat to slightly

Bank stocks have been hit hard
this year on expectations that the
Federal Reserve will now be reluctant to raise interest rates, which

The fears about the banks are
entirely about profitability.
Investors were expecting the Fed
to raise rates three to four times

maybe one interest rate hike,

Zirin said.

Judge to VW: Find a fix quick for dirty cars

By Michael Biesecker

WASHINGTON A federal judge

overseeing hundreds of class-action
lawsuits against Volkswagen says he
wants a firm answer within a month
about how the German automaker
plans to bring nearly 600,000 diesel
cars into compliance with clean air
U.S. District Court Judge Charles R.
Breyer told Volkswagens lawyers at a
hearing in California on Thursday that
he expects them to report back by
March 24. The judge said that by then,

he wants to know from the company

about the available technical solutions to fix the cars and the status of
negotiations on a potential settlement
with affected owners.
Volkswagen admitted to U.S. regulators in September it had used illegal
software installed in its so-called
Clean Diesel engines. The cheating
allowed cars to pass laboratory emissions tests while spewing levels of
harmful nitrogen oxide at up to 40
times the level allowed when operating on real roads.
Breyer said six months is long
enough for VW to find a fix.

Knights knock off Dons

El Camino wins
baseball opener

By Nathan Mollat

By Terry Bernal



The Hillsdale boys basketball team beat

rival Aragon only once in three meetings
this season.
But that one win could not have been any
bigger. Facing the Dons in the second
round of the Central Coast Section Division
III tournament, the Knights grinded out a
44-40 victory.
The first time (we played) they handled
us on our floor. The second time we just
didnt close out the game, said Hillsdale
coach Brett Stevenson. Tonight, we closed
Hillsdale (14-12) advances to the
Division III quarterfinals where it will face
No. 2 Sacred Heart Cathedral (9-13) at a
time to be determined Saturday at Aragon.
The game was not going to win any style
points. Both teams focused on defense and
working the shot clock to limit possessions and potential fast-break opportunities. In the end, Hillsdale made a couple
more shots.
To beat a team three times (in one season) is very difficult, said Aragon coach
Sam Manu. These games, we usually pull
away in the fourth quarter. We wanted it to
be low scoring and wait for our shooting to
kick in and it never did.
The game was nip-and-tuck the entire
way, with the biggest lead being a 9-3
Aragon advantage in the first quarter.
Besides that, neither team led by more a
couple points the rest of the way. Every
time either team threatened to put together a
run, the other responded with a clutch basket.
In the fourth quarter alone, there were four
lead changes, but there were only two
points scored a pair of Taiga Schwarz free
throws over the final 3:34 of the game.
Those two free throws, however, iced the
game for the Knights.
It appeared Aragon (12-15) might steal
the game in the final minute. Trailing 4240, the Dons had a couple cracks at tying
the score, but during a scramble for a loose
ball, the Knights forced a jump ball and the
possession arrow pointed their way. They


It was a strange school day at El Camino

High School, but Thursdays opening day of
baseball went off without a hitch.
Wednesday, the South San Francisco
Unified School District got a scare when it
received an anonymous letter expressing
concern about possible threats to the South
San Francisco and El Camino high school
campuses. With Thursday attendance
optional, most of the El Camino baseball
players didnt attend classes, but, due to the
unique circumstances, were allowed to play
later that afternoon, despite a school rule
that generally prohibits
absent students from participating in schoolaffiliated sports the day
of said absence.
The Colts opening day
turned out to be a perfect
afternoon for baseball. El
Camino's new manager
Chris Davidson Chris
embarked on his varsity
coaching career with a 3-2 home win over
Washington-SF under bright, blue skies.
Awesome, Davidson said of his first
win. This is my first year here. Were still
getting to know each other and all I did was
ask them to come out and compete, and they
With the program tasked with replacing
beloved longtime manager Carlos Roman
following his retirement in 2012, Davidson
is El Caminos third varsity manager in four
years. But he has brought a noticeable flair
to the position. A throwback to the days of
legendary El Camino manger Lou Zuardo,
his inclusive brand of old-school coaching
keeps players engaged with constant chatter.
Hes just like we have to be together,
Colts starting pitcher Jesser Hernandez
said. We have to be more like a team and be
together ... and keep always working hard.
Hard work seems to be right up the
Hernandez boys alley. Senior right-hander

basketball playoff opener.
After Mills stone-cold start, Gibbs produced the Vikings first points on one of her

Gibbs and Businger now a senior and
junior, respectively played together as
early as their time together at Taylor Middle
School. But they soon embarked on a legendary career together at Mills, when
Businger made the varsity team as a freshman. While they had some growing pains
that first season, it wasnt long before the
chemistry between the two became second
Once, in the beginning, [the chemistry]
had to develop, Businger said. Now, its

just easy a slice of cake.

The two also balance each other out.
While Gibbs was busy producing on
offense, she grabbed just five rebounds.
Businger, however, took over the post,
notching a double-double with 14 points
and 11 rebounds as Mills owned the boards.
The Vikings outrebounded North Monterey
I like playing with her, Gibbs said.
She plays hard and shes aggressive. So,
we can play off each other.

CSM throwers poised for another big year


Freshman Erica Vong could be breakout swim star for Bulldogs

If there is one constant in the College of

San Mateo track and field team, it is the consistency at which its throwing programs
Year in and year out, the Bulldogs discus,
hammer and javelin throwers, in addition to
their shot putters, are among the best not
only in the Coast Conference, but all of
Northern California and even the state.
But there is a long way to go from to the
end of the season before talk can begin
about who is the best. Its early, but CSM
names already litter the top Coast
Conference throwers list.
Were just beginning to get a good feeling of the direction were going, said Mike
Lewis, CSMs longtime throws coach.
If there is anyone who can help mold a raw
thrower into a championship contender, its
Lewis. In more than 40 years of coaching
the throws (the last 30 at CSM), he has
developed an eye for the details. A change of
position here, shifting the elbow there,
Lewis knows all the tricks in the book to
get maximum efficiency out of a thrower.
Obviously the talent needs to be there in

the athlete and, if it is, Lewis is the best

man to pull it all out.
The trick in throws is finding balance
and rhythm. Then, look at strength, Lewis
said. [The athletes] are making a choice of
putting the work in. Im just trying to
sculpt what theyre trying to do.
Lewis said the goal of any season is gradually get better as the season goes along,
with the hope of making the biggest throws
on the biggest stages at the end of the year.
You cant expect to go from A to Z in only
a couple of weeks, so its important the
throwers are making strides to reach those
postseason goals.
I like to go to these (early-season) meets
so they can some numbers. (I want them
to) start getting used to competing, Lewis
said. There are a lot of practice throwers
who are great. What we want to do is transfer some of our practice throws into meets.
While CSM throwers may be the cream of
the Coast Conference crop, Lewis knows
there are better throw programs around the
state and it is those against which Lewis
judges his athletes.
Nor Cal is always strong (in the throws).

This is going to be a strong year all over

California, Lewis said. Its going to be
tough to make it into state.

A stroke of luck
Community college coaches are always
on the hustle to recruit players. Unlike their
four-year counterparts, athletes do not officially commit to a community college
program. As any JC coach will tell you,
they dont know for sure who is on the team
until the first day of official practice.
But every now and then, the sports gods
will smile upon a JC coach and drop a statecaliber athlete right in their lap.

swim team and coach Randy Wright. He

advised to attend community college to

become eligible to transfer.
They told her to go to community college and her uncle lives in Pacifica, Wright
explained. We lucked out.
When Wright received an email from Vong
and told him what kind of times she posted
in high school, he immediately got excited.
He knew right away what kind of talent with
whom he was dealing.
She has done nothing to convince him
otherwise since then.
The first time I saw her (swim), I knew
she was the real deal, Wright said. She is
already posting some of the fastest times in
the state.
And Vong is far from just dominant in one
stroke. Wright can envision her swimming
in upwards of eight events: the 50 and 100
free, the 100 and 200 back, the 200 IM
(individual medley) would be a good one (for
her), Wright said.
Then there are three relays: the medley
relay and a pair of free events.
She is a great all-around swimmer, but
shes dynamite in the sprints, Wright said.
Shes fun to watch.

eventually moved the ball into the frontcourt and Schwarz took an inbound pass in
the corner, waiting for the Dons to foul.
Instead, Aragons Devin Grant forced a
jump ball with 20 seconds to play to give
the Dons one last chance. DeAndre Sanders
bid to tie the game went long and Schwarz
was fouled with under 10 seconds to play. He
made both ends of a 1-and-1 and the Knights
held on for the win.
Thats our team, Stevenson said. Its
not pretty.
As has been the case throughout the season, someone else stepped up for Hillsdale.

Continued from page 11
Mills took the lead with 2:55 remaining
in the first quarter on a short jumper by
Gibbs and never looked back. Leading 14-8
after the opening quarter, Mills opened the
second with a 16-2 run.
Things were going so well for Mills in the
first half, Businger even managed a peculiar
statistic in going 2 of 4 from the free throw
line in the quarter. Both of her misses came


The Knights have struggled to find consistent scoring from someone and while that
search is still ongoing, they still had
enough to fend off the Dons. Schwarz finished with 13 points, but it was Ryan
Doherty who kept Hillsdale in the game by
scoring a game-high 15 points, hitting
three 3-pointers.
Weve been trying to get balanced scoring and its been a struggle. We havent had
that second scorer, Stevenson said. Ryan
had a strong preseason. In the middle of the
season, he struggled a little bit, but he stuck
with it.
Aragon was led by Nevan Samadhana,
who finished with 12 points on four 3pointers. Three of those 3s came in the third
quarter, to keep the Dons in the game.
Hes the heart and soul of our team,
Manu said. Hes not even our best shooter.

He wills the ball in.

Kimon Economou added 11 for the Dons
while also pulling down 10 rebounds.
Down 3-2 early, the Dons put together a
7-0 run in the first quarter, with Economou
scoring three straight buckets to give
Aragon a 9-3 lead.
Hillsdale, however, finished the quarter
with a 7-3 run to close to 12-10 after the
first period.
The game bogged down in the second
quarter as the teams combined to score 14
points, but the Knights did enough to take a
19-17 lead at halftime.
The third quarter saw both teams get out in
transition and the period turned into the
best one of the game. After Aragon tied the
score at 19 on a Aaron Balotro jumper to
open the second half, Hillsdale got a bucket
from Doherty and a layup from center Isaiah

Cozzolino for a 23-19 Hillsdale advantage.

on the second shot, and she grabbed her

own offensive rebound both times.
Meanwhile, Mills head coach Dave Matsu
used the double-digit lead to get his bench
players minutes. Junior forward Jasmine
Dong also had a big night in the post, totaling seven points and 10 rebounds. Junior
guard Zelie Zshornack scored nine points,
and her younger sister Debbie Zshornack
made her varsity debut with five points.
(The team played) super well, Gibbs
said. Everyone was looking for the passes
and everyone had good team chemistry. So,
it went well.
Gibbs will be attending West Point next

season as an inductee into the U.S. Army,

and is slated to play for the Army womens
basketball team next season. It will be
strange to see Businger on the court without
her longtime post counterpart next season.
On the other hand, Gibbs is one of just two
outgoing seniors this season.
Its going to be different, Businger said.
But we have a good group of girls coming
The future was on display in the second
half Thursday. In addition to Debbie
Zshornacks five-point output, Olivia
Williams grabbed five rebounds in her varsity debut. Both are call-ups from the jun-

ior-varsity squad who joined the team for

the CCS playoff opener.

But Samadhana buried back-to-back 3s to

give the Dons a 25-23 lead. Doherty
responded with a 3 of his own to put the
Knights up 26-25 with 4:06 to play in the
third. Aragons Davion Coxs jumper gave
the lead back to the Dons, 27-26, but
Schwarz responded with a layup to put the
Knights back on top. Doherty followed
with a 3 to give Hillsdale a 31-27 advantage, but Samadhanas third 3 of the quarter
closed Aragons deficit to 31-30. Doherty
slashed to the basket for a 33-30 Hillsdale
lead and a floater from Cox made it a onepoint Aragon deficit going into the final
eight minutes.
If we played patiently make (Aragon)
grind, make them work then we had a
chance to beat Aragon, Stevenson said.

So, will Businger feel more responsibility next season, without Gibbs, as a senior?
For sure, Businger said. More scoring.
Definitely more of a role model for everybody.
With the win, Mills advances to
Saturdays quarterfinals to face a tough test
in No. 2 Soquel. The game, however, will be
played at Mills at a time to be determined, as
Mills was a predetermined neutral CCS
playoff site.

Semien makes big defensive strides at shortstop

By Janie McCauley

MESA, Ariz. Ron Washington stood

side by side with shortstop Marcus Semien
in the batting cage within the depths of the
Oakland Coliseum last month, each smiling
as they worked together for a FanFest session.
These two have struck quite a bond in the
short time Washington has been back with
the Athletics as third base coach, a job he
had years ago while helping defensively
develop former stars such as six-time Gold
Glove third baseman Eric Chavez, first
baseman Jason Giambi and shortstop
Miguel Tejada.
Semien committed a majors-leading 35
errors in his first season with the As last
year, but the 25-year-old shortstop made
major strides with his glove over the second
half after Washington returned in May
before being promoted into his old thirdbase gig come August.
The way we work, the way that Ive
learned to work on defense with Wash, has
really made me more confident, Semien
said. Looking at the entire year as an experience, its only going to make me better.
There were more errors than I wanted to
have, but its going to make me a better
player. The second half, looking at the numbers, of course thats good. But the whole
year itself is whats going to make the difference for me moving forward.
Oakland executive Billy Beane came calling last year when Washington needed
work, already with a major project in mind:
Semien. Its been a perfect fit for

time around with the franchise following his
eight-year tenure as
Texas manager from
2007-14, which included
two AL pennants, before
some time out of the professional game.

Sogard will be in the mix as a utilityman.
Semien earned respect in the clubhouse
for how he handled himself through the
struggles and criticism.
For him last year defensively he was
night and day better than he was starting,
ace Sonny Gray said. Hes one of those
guys, too, you see him out there literally
every single day working early. If something did go wrong during the game he was
the first one to stand up and hold his head
high and say hell get better at it. And he
really did. Hes going to be a big part of this

team. Theres no doubt in my mind hes

going to continue to work and get better.
The 63-year-old Washington arrived at
spring training last week and quickly
walked around Hohokam Stadium to survey
his workspace the practice fields.
He plans regular infield meetings, to discuss what is our purpose. Oaklands first
full-squad workout of spring training is
Friday, but his infielders were early arrivals.
They all are here because theyre excited,
and Im excited, Washington said. Ive
got to get with those kids and develop a
relationship. A lot of them I know but not
all of them. ... I know I can help them be
what they want to be on the defensive end.
Melvin appreciates all the attention to
detail at this stage for a team that finished
last in the AL West at 68-94 following three
straight playoff berths.
He really wants to let each and every one
of these guys know what his expectations
of them are, whether its what their workloads going to be, whether its early work,
the versatility we have with some guys
moving around to different positions. He
wants to make sure theyre clear with that.
He is on top of things as we saw last year.
Hes a great infield guy and very passionate
about it.

Oakland sends RHP Brooks

to Cubs for OF Coghlan
MESA, Ariz. The Chicago Cubs
acquired right-handed pitcher Aaron Brooks
from the Oakland Athletics for outfielder
Chris Coghlan on Thursday.
The 30-year-old Coghlan batted .250 with

25 doubles, 16 home runs and 41 RBIs in

148 games for the Cubs last season.
The 25-year-old Brooks is 3-5 with an
8.38 ERA in 58 innings during 15 big

Matt Cain has cyst

removed from pitching arm
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. San Francisco
Giants right-hander Matt Cain has undergone a procedure to have a cyst removed
from his upper right arm.
General manager Bobby Evans made the
announcement Thursday,
when Cain had the cyst
removed from his throwing arm by team orthopedist Dr. Ken Akizuki in
San Francisco. The
pitcher was scheduled to
return to the teams
spring training facility
in Scottsdale to rehab
Matt Cain
and is expected to resume
throwing in approximately 10 days.
Cain, who had injury-shortened seasons
in 2014 and 15 following elbow surgery
and arm issues, said at the start of spring
training he had corrective surgery on both
eyes during the offseason.
He is slated to be in San Franciscos rotation but manager Bruce Bochy has depth and
the option of using Chris Heston if needed.

Curry sets 3-point mark, scores 51 in Warriors win

ORLANDO, Fla. Stephen Currys smile

gave way to laughter.
The reigning MVP received an inbounds pass
following a free throw, took a couple of dribbles past midcourt before launching a 44-foot
shot that banked in at the buzzer.
The crowd rose to its feet, Curry lifted his
arms and struck a pose before chuckling his
way to the Golden State bench.

That wasnt his only highlight of the night.
Curry surpassed Kyle Korvers mark of 127
straight games with a 3, which he tied while
making six 3s at Miami on Wednesday night.
I dont know that the record is that significant because its so simple for him. His 3-point
shot is like a 2-point shot. Its what he does,
Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. Its to the
point where we expect a half-court shot. ... Its
a rhythm shot, and it just went in.
Including the postseason, Curry has made 3s
in 149 straight games, also a record.
I have a hard time seeing how that streak is
ever going to end. It would have to be kind of a

Bismark Hernandez took over to earn the
save with 1 2/3 innings of shutout baseball.
Bismark Hernandez also provided a clutch
swing of the bat in a key third-inning comeback rally. After Washington jumped out to
a 1-0 lead in the top of the frame, El Camino
came surging right back. No. 9 hitter
Johnny Vazquez who went 2 for 2 with an
RBI and one run scored sparked the rally
with a bunt single to lead
off the inning. After
Vazquez stole second,
smoked an RBI double up
the gap in left-center, and
advanced to third on a
throwing error.
Johnny Vazquez had a
great leadoff at-bat
got on and stole a base
... and then I got to 0-2,
got my pitch and just hit
it, Bizmark Hernandez
then plated the go-ahead
run on an RBI groundout
by Armin Webb. El
Camino then added an
insurance run with a twoout rally in the fourth.
Slugging first baseman
Matt George banged a
long double off the fence in left-center.
Then Vazquez floated an RBI single to left,
giving the Colts a 3-1 lead.
The insurance run benefitted Jesser
Hernandez, who departed in the fifth after
surrendering his second run of the day. Still,
the seniors first opening-day start was all

about composure, according to Davidson.
He did a great job, Davidson said.
Jesser is a guy who gets really fired up.
Hes animated out there. ... For him to go
out there and get us to where we needed to
go, that was great.
Bismark Hernandez then emerged to keep
the lead in tact. Against his older cousin,
Washington had three straight batters reach
with one out. Declan Lloyd had the RBI single to plate David Scolari who was 3 for
3 with both Washington runs and knock
Jesser Hernandez out of the game.
The right-handed Bismark Hernandez
punched out the first batter he faced. Then
after a walk to load the bases, he bounced
back with another strikeout. The junior
totaled four strikeouts on the day, including
the final out as he retired the side in order in
the seventh.
The Colts also flashed some leather in the
outfield. Vazquez a returning varsity junior made a critical running catch in the
third, causing Washington to strand a runner at third. Vazquez was shading towards
right-center when Jacob Villarosa hit a
smash to the left-center gap; but Vazquez
got a great first step to make an all-out running catch breaking back on the long liner.
While clutch hitting was at a premium,
the Colts produced nine hits in the game,
and had a knock in every inning.
Weve got a lot of work to do ... but I do
think by the end of the year, this will be a
really good hitting team, Davidson said.
El Camino is Davidsons first varsity
managerial post. He served as the head
coach of the Carlmont junior-varsity team
from 2012-15. He started his coaching
career the previous season at his alma mater
Caada College. First-base coach Matt

Caada starting pitcher Elijah Saunders

the Colts (2-9 overall) fell 3-2 at home against
Santa Rosa Junior College in the first of a twogame series.
Santa Rosa (11-1) has been one tough customer this season, losing

60-foot waves highlight Hawaiis Eddie


HALIEWA, Hawaii There are two sayings that come along with the Eddie Aikau
big-wave surfing invitational: The bay
calls the day and Eddie would go.
For the first time in six years, the bay
and event organizers gave the nod
Thursday as a powerful and sustained swell
produced huge surf on Oahus North Shore.
Eddie, a famed lifeguard and big-wave surfer
who once protected these shores, most certainly would have gone.
Before the sun came up over the horseshoe-shaped Waimea Bay, organizers huddled together to make the final call on the
event, which has only run nine times in its

31-year history.
Eddie Aikuas brother, Clyde, announced to
a large crowd early Thursday morning that his
brothers namesake surfing contest was on.
Ive been riding Waimea Bay for over 40
years, and today has to be one of the best days
Ive ever seen, Aikau said. It is a go! he
added as the crowd came alive with whistles,
cheers and applause.
They got what they hoped for as huge sets of
monster waves crashed onto the outer reef of
the bay, producing some waves that organizers estimate were 60 feet tall.
Local Hawaii surfer John John Florence
won Thursdays event, catching four massive
waves for a total score of over 300 points.
Australias Ross Clarke-Jones took second,

Garcia shares first-round

lead at the Honda Classic
By Doug Ferguson


Sergio Garcia made an eagle,
avoided an alligator and wound up
in a share of the lead Thursday in
the Honda Classic.
Garcia holed out with an 8-iron
from 142 yards into the wind on
the second hole
for an eagle,
and he narrowly
missed an eagle
putt on the 18th
hole at PGA
National. The
Spaniard shot
5-under 65 and
shared the lead
Sergio Garcia with Michael
Thompson, the
2013 Honda Classic winner, who
also birdied the last hole.
They were one shot ahead of
Rickie Fowler and William
The biggest excitement for
Garcia was on the par-4 sixth hole,
where he made his lone bogey.
His tee shot found the water left
of the fairway, shallow enough for
him to roll up his pants and try to
play it out to the fairway. That part
was easy. He looked over his
shoulder because of an alligator on

the island, making sure it wasnt

going anywhere soon.
I was more worried about the
alligator that was on the other side
of the island than getting out of
the water, Garcia said. The ball, I
could see probably half of it, so I
knew that I could get it out. Almost
made 4, which would have been a
great 4. Im not going to lie, I was
happy with a 5.
And he was happy with other 60
strokes he took on a typical windy
day at PGA National.
Garcia missed the cut last week
at Riviera, two days in which he
said he did nothing well. Hardly
anything went wrong for him in
the Honda Classic, and even when
it did, he managed to avoid trouble. Garcia had to play a 40-yard
hook from the rough left of the
10th fairway to just short of the
green for a simple par.
Fowler had the only bogey-free
round, which included a chip-in for
par on the 10th hole. McGirt was
more on the wild side by making
seven birdies.
Anything in the red is good
around this place, McGirt said.
At 4 under, I would say it was bordering on great. This place is
never easy, even when its calm.
You cant fall asleep on any shot
out here.

and Hawaiis Shane Dorian finished third.

One competitor, Ramon Navarro, the son of
a fisherman from south Chile, embodies
Eddies spirit, said event spokeswoman and
longtime Aikau family friend Jodi Wilmott.
Navarro is a very unassuming, a very humble character, Wilmott said. He has a higher
In 2009, when Navarro was invited to his
first Eddie competition, he awed the crowd
when he rode the biggest wave of the day,
scoring a perfect 100 on the monster breaker
that towered over him.
Eddie was a higher-vision guy, too,
Wilmott said. He had loftier goals for
humanity, and he understood the power of
relationships. That is just the spirit Ramon

Navarro came to the North Shore and worked
his way into the surfing community by building mud brick ovens and selling empanadas to
beachgoers, Wilmott said.
Navarro surfed in the first heat of the morning on Thursday, and despite only catching
one wave out of a possible four, earning him a
mere 5 points out of 100, Navarro said he was
just happy to be involved in the event.
This is my dream, Navarro said after drying off from his hour-long session. I can die

Academy Awards hooked on Oscar bait
By Jake Coyle

NEW YORK In the Coen brothers recent 1950s Hollywood

satire, Hail, Caesar! Ralph Fiennes ascot-wearing British director
Laurence Laurentz is helming a stuffy drawing room drama full of
tuxedoed men and ballroom-gowned women.
The movie, Merrily We Dance, Laurentz declares is
a prestige picture. But its clear that the Coens think
so-called prestige pictures can be just as much a joke
as any other type of movie. In its day, Merrily We
Dance would have been destined for Oscars.
Lately, the narrow parameters of movies celebrated
by the Academy Awards in the best picture category Gaga: Assault wont define
havent been quite so funny. Self-serious prestige films her after Oscar performance

There are many factors behind whats led to two
straight years of all-white acting nominees, but one is
the stifling limitation of what gets considered an Oscar movie.
What frequently guides a movie toward a best picture nomination or a
star toward an acting nod is a confluence of factors that frequently have
only so much to do with quality. Influential is how a movie is released (a
prominent festival rollout can pay big dividends), how much support a

Oscar predictions: What will

LOS ANGELES Ahead of Sundays 88th Academy Awards,
Associated Press film writers Lindsey Bahr and Jake Coyle share their
predictions for a ceremony that has everyone guessing:

The Nominees: The Big Short, Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn,
Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian, The Revenant, Room,
Will Win: The Revenants bravado will match its awards tally.
Should Win: Mad Max: Fury Road is a visionary filmmaking

MAY 1 5 . The Peninsula Museum of Art
invites the public to the Sunday, Feb.28,
opening of its latest exhibit, which brings
together the prints of Betty Friedman and the
sculptures of Albert Dicruttalo. The reception,2 p.m. to 4 p.m., affords the opportunity to meet the artists.
Friedman uses the skills and demands of
papermaking and printmaking to produce
abstract large-scale monoprints. The unusually large size of her monoprints compared
to more conventional intimate smaller
intaglio prints change the viewers relationship to them as they are life size. A large
print is also more difficult to create, as errors
appear larger, more visible and more unforgiving. Friedman uses paper fiber (cotton,
flax, abaca and kozo), powdered pigments,
natural dyes, Jin Shofu (Japanese wheat
paste) and etching ink. Friedman, a professor
of art and chair of the art department at Notre
Dame de Namur University in Belmont, said:
In this group of prints some older prints are
used. It is satisfying to tear up unsuccessful
prints and reuse the passages that are interesting in new compositions. Printing without
the ability to make a proof having only
one chance to get it right keeps this
process fresh. Friedmans work has appeared
in collections at the Oakland Museum of
Computers, Dole Food Company, Kaiser
Permanente and the Fairmont Hotels. The

majority of the prints shown in this exhibition were produced as a project during a sabbatical from her teaching.
Albert Dicruttalo, a sculptor who works primarily with steel, stainless steel and bronze,
said: I am drawn to its toughness and the
challenge of forming it. I find many of the
shapes that inspire me in nature. The resulting sculptures are completely formal, often
comprised of compound curves that create
complex intersections and compelling linear
and volumetric elements. Dicruttalos
process is sometimes planned out in advance
with drawings, maquettes, or computer aided
design. Other times, it is intuitive and immediate, and often a combination of the two, in
which he begins with a deliberate idea that
changes organically through the process of
forming, fabricating and casting. He usually
creates several sculptures based on a single
theme each piece developing from the previous one until he feels the formal elements have been thoroughly investigated and
realized in a way that he responds to emotionally.

looked. It is filmmaking at its best.
Will Win: No one really knows. The
Revenant has the momentum, but consensus is elusive. Panicked voices everywhere
can be heard exclaiming The guilds are all
over the map! In the end, I go with The
Big Short because the Producers Guild has
been the best forecaster in recent years.
Should Win: It may lack some cinematic
punch, but the sturdy Spotlight is the
closest thing we have to a new Sydney
Lumet classic.
Should Have Been a Contender: Carol
and Creed. The absence here of Todd
Haynes majestic 50s dream is a glaring
oversight. And it took too long for people
to realize just how good Ryan Cooglers
Rocky sequel is.

The Nominees: Bryan Cranston,
Trumbo; Matt Damon, The Martian;
Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant;
Michael Fassbender, Steve Jobs; Eddie
Redmayne, The Danish Girl.
Will Win: DiCaprio. He had us at raw
Should Win: DiCaprios inevitable win
can be both boring and merited. If only we
could guarantee that the Academy was
choosing him for his actual performance
and not the behind-the-scenes suffering.
Should Have Been a Contender: When did
we start taking the greatness of the
Tarantino/Samuel L. Jackson pairing for
granted? Jacksons speechifying, Lincolnletter carrying Union soldier in The
Hateful Eight is a performance that will
live long beyond DiCaprios tussle with
that bear.

Will Win: DiCaprio. Its his year, as

they say. But I would love to see what
lengths his Oscar crusade would go to if he
didnt win. What would he eat in his next
film? What animal carcass would he sleep
Should Win: Its a weak year for the men.
Can I pass?
Should Have Been a Contender: Michael
B. Jordan of Creed and 2013s Fruitvale
Station has twice been unfairly overlooked here. But what about Al Pacino as an
aged rock star in Danny Collins? It was
one of the years most underrated films.
(And that surprised me, too.)

The Nominees: Cate Blanchett, Carol;
Brie Larson, Room; Jennifer Lawrence,
Joy; Charlotte Rampling, 45 Years;
Saoirse Ronan, Brooklyn.
Will Win: Brie Larson. She gives about
10 incredible performances in a single film
and has won everything so far.
Should Win: Obvious grit trumps nuance
at the Oscars, but Charlotte Rampling tore
out many a heartstring as a jealous woman
in 45 Years.
Should Have Been a Contender: Bel
Powley made the sexual awakening of a
teenager (with her moms adult boyfriend
no less) seem neither too exploitative nor
celebratory in the criminally underseen
The Diary of a Teenage Girl.
Will Win: Brie Larson has this in the bag.
Shes a terrifically natural performer and a
real talent. But, for me, she was better in
Short Term 12 than in the mawkishly
manipulative Room.
Should Win: In a strong field, Cate
Blanchett slips by because of the regularity
of her quality. In Carol, shes both devastating and exhilarating.
Should Have Been a Contender: Bel
Powleys hip-swinging 70s San Francisco
teenager in Diary of a Teenage Girl was a
sensational breakthrough.


The Nominees: Christian Bale, The Big
Short; Tom Hardy, The Revenant; Mark
Ruffalo, Spotlight; Mark Rylance,
Bridge of Spies; Sylvester Stallone,
Will Win: Sylvester Stallone, but itll be
more about his legacy than Creed.
Should Win: Mark Rylance made his subtlety affecting Soviet spy more lovable
than Tom Hanks in Bridge of Spies.
Should Have Been a Contender: Nicholas
Hoult. It takes quite a performance to
upstage the bellowing visuals of Mad Max:
Fury Road.
Will Win: Theres potential intrigue here,
but the swell around Stallone is a fitting
honor for the actor whos spent three mythmaking decades as Rocky Balboa.
Should Win: Mark Rylance gives Bridge
of Spies a serene glow. The combination of
him and Tom Hanks is riveting: one of the
theaters greats meets one of the movies.
Should Have Been a Contender: The thundering Idris Elba is the obvious answer for
his rebel commander in Beast of No
Nation. But Michael Shannon in most
things is a good answer, too, and he was in
grand, imposing form in Ramin Bahranis
99 Homes.


The Nominees: Jennifer Jason Leigh,
The Hateful Eight; Rooney Mara,
Carol; Rachel McAdams, Spotlight;
Alicia Vikander, The Danish Girl; Kate
Winslet, Steve Jobs.
Will Win: Alicia Vikander, for giving a
soul to The Danish Girl.
Should Win: Alicia Vikander, for The
Danish Girl, sure, but also as a secret nod
to the scope of her work this year in both
Ex Machina and Testament of Youth.
Should Have Been a Contender: There are
few performances that have moved, entertained, and stayed with me as much as Mya
Taylors sultry transgender lounge-singing


stunner did in Tangerine.
Will Win: Alicia Vikander will win for
The Danish Girl, as voters honor not only
her intelligent performance in that film, but
a year full of standout work.
Should Win: Vikander, but for her slinky
artificial intelligence in Ex Machina.
Should Have Been a Contender: Cobie
Smulders, best known for How I Met Your
Mother, ran away with Andrew Bujalskis
Results as a comically intense personal

The Nominees: The Big Short, Adam
McKay; Mad Max: Fury Road, George
Miller; The Revenant, Alejandro G.
Inarritu; Room, Lenny Abrahamson;
Spotlight, Tom McCarthy.
Will Win: Alejandro Inarritu, and itll be
deserved and an incredible achievement.
Should Win: George Miller, and it will
also be deserved.
Should Have Been a Contender: There are
so many this year Ridley Scott (The
Martian) and Todd Haynes (Carol) among
them but I would like to have seen Sean
Baker in here for his incredibly inventive
and utterly engaging Tangerine.
Will Win: The Inarritu repeat seems to be
in effect. The Revenant isnt shy about its
filmmaking, but Inarritus audacious long
shots and ravishing frontier wilderness
offer a quality hard to come by: the awe of
something not seen before.
Should Win: George Millers Mad Max:
Fury Road is a crazy puzzle of a movie trying to stretch the language of film just like
The Revenant, but in opposite directions:
with rapid cutting and feverish surrealism.
Should Have Been a Contender: Andrew
Haighs 45 Years earned a nod for
Charlotte Rampling and acclaim for her costar, Tom Courtenay. But neither would have
been possible without the acutely observant eye of Haigh.

Diversity must play a role in

Oscar show, but not the lead
By Sandy Cohen


Amalia (Jessica Whittemore) finally realizes its Georg (Michael

Doppe) she loves in Foothill Music Theatres production of
She Loves Me.

Much to love
about Foothills
She Loves Me
By Judy Richter

Foothill Music Theatres production of She Loves Me is

charming all the way around.
Based on Parfumerie by Miklos Laszlo, Joe Masteroffs
book tells the story of two lonely people who call each
other Dear Friend in the letters they exchange as anonymous pen pals.
Unbeknownst to them, though, they become acquainted
after the woman, Amalia Balash (Jessica Whittemore), gets
a job in the Budapest perfume/cosmetic shop, Maraceks
Parfumerie, managed by the man, Georg Nowack (Michael
Doppe). Right away, their relationship is prickly and
This state of affairs continues for several months until the
pen pals agree to meet in person. The nervous Georg sends
his friend and fellow employee, Ladislav Sipos (John
Rinaldi), into the restaurant ahead of him to see the woman
who awaits him.
When he learns that its Amalia, he sits with her but doesnt reveal that hes her anonymous correspondent. Instead
he annoys her. Eventually all works out for the best. This is
a love story, after all.
Director Milissa Carey fields an excellent cast of actors
who create believable, likable characters who sing well.
Even the two-timing Steven Kodaly (Nick Rodrigues),
another employee, is a charmer.
The other principals are Anthony Stephens as Arpad
Laszlo, the bicycle-riding shop delivery boy; Morgan
Dayley as Ilona Ritter, the shops cashier; and George
Mauro as Mr. Maracek, its owner.
The large ensemble also is noteworthy, with everyone
creating a realistic character. The appealing music is by
Jerry Bock with lyrics by Sheldon Harnick.
Musical direction is by Dolores Duran-Cefalu, who conducts the offstage six-member orchestra from the keyboard.
B. Modern has created the stylish 1934 costumes.
Running about two and a half hours with one intermission, She Loves Me is a sweet show thats sure to please.

Gaga says assault wont define her after Oscar performance

By Mesfin Fekadu

The pop star said earning her first Oscar
nomination for a song about a serious and

heavy topic makes it extra-special.

They really and truly nominated the
issue of sexual assault on campuses. ...
People all over the world that have suffered
with any kind of pain or trauma, (if) they are
having trouble being brave, this song is for
them, she said.
Gaga also said shes honored to be nominated with Warren, who earned her eighth
Oscar nomination with Til It Happens to
You. Warren has never won the prize
despite earning nominations for No. 1 hits
like Aerosmiths I Dont Want to Miss a
Thing and Celine Dions Because You
Loved Me.

Warren said she took a risk calling Gaga

and asking her to work on the song.
She publicly talked about being sexually
assaulted herself and I thought, You know
what, Im going to just take a chance and
call her and see if shes open to this. And
you never know because someone can get
pissed off or something if its too personal,
but she really responded, Warren said. I
got on a plane and we went into the studio.
Some drama clouded the good news of the
nomination when songwriter Linda Perry,
who has worked with Christina Aguilera,
Pink and others, insinuated on Twitter that
Gaga didnt write Til It Happens to You.

ance, had the odds stacked against it. Its a

seventh entry in a franchise and it wasnt
much pushed by its studio, Warner Bros. Its
humanistic heartbeat is perhaps like
Cooglers previous Fruitvale Station, also
starring Michael B. Jordan outside the
kind of films starring black actors that usually garner academy attention.
Few African-American actors have ever
won for a film by a black director. (A notable
exception is Denzel Washington for Antoine
Fuquas Training Day.) No black actress
has ever won for a film helmed by an African
American director.
The N.W.A biopic Straight Outta
Compton which lacked a white protagonist or the historical sweep of 12 Years a
Slave also didnt fit the usual criteria.
One academy member, the writer-director
Rod Lurie, says he heard numerous academy
voters dismiss even screening Straight
Outta Compton.
Taste plays a part, but the playing field is
uneven. If it wasnt, Melissa McCarthy
would have an armful of Oscars by now.
Like many genres, comedy is all but forgotten come awards season. This year, the

trend reached a somewhat absurd endpoint

when David O. Russells somber Joy and
the nerdy space adventure The Martian
sneaked into the comedy category at the
Golden Globes.
Its one reason why Leonardo DiCaprio
was passed over for his brilliantly outlandish performance in Martin Scorseses
The Wolf of Wall Street, but is likely to
win instead for crawling in mud and eating
bison liver in The Revenant. Only one of
the 20 acting nominees this year Jennifer
Jason Leigh in The Hateful Eight is
straightforwardly comic. And even she takes
a beating.
Films from outside English-speaking
countries and documentaries have virtually
no chance of gaining the same consideration
for best picture as a historical epic or a lavish costume drama. If they did, the Frenchproduced Turkish drama Mustang, the
tremendous debut by Deniz Gamze Erguven,
might be vying alongside Spotlight. Or
Joshua Oppenheimers documentary on
Indonesian genocide, The Look of
Silence, might be a rival to Bridge of

The Oscars are less about rewarding the

best films than affirming Hollywoods sense
of itself which is why exclusion so outrages. They are, the New Yorkers Richard
Brody has written, Hollywoods idealized
self-portrait. Thats one reason why
Alejandro Inarritus Birdman a film
about a Hollywood star striving for artistic
salvation outside of superhero films won
best picture last year. It was a vote not just
for Birdman, but against Marvel domination.
Any award show is built on the consensus,
and thus can drain away daring candidates,
like Spike Lees bristling Chi-Raq, the
iPhone-shot Tangerine or the fresh coming-of-age tale Diary of a Teenage Girl.
Yet despite often rewarding mediocre films
that fit a narrow standard, the Oscars matter.
Outside of a Nobel or a Pulitzer, no award is
more affixed to a persons legacy; Oscar
winner is a tag that lasts past death.
But its worth remembering: The lack of
one didnt do much to dull the luster of Alfred
Hitchcock, Cary Grant, Barbara Stanwyck,
Akira Kurosawa, Ingmar Bergman, Fred
Astaire, Joseph Cotton or Marilyn Monroe.

John Legend and Common are also set to

Then there are the nominees, whove
been somewhat overshadowed this awards
season by the industrys larger issues. The
Revenant leads with 12 nominations,
including best picture, and its locked in a
three-way battle with the investment dramedy The Big Short and the journalism tale
Spotlight for the nights top prize. Other
contenders are Bridge of Spies,
Brooklyn, The Martian, Room and
Mad Max: Fury Road.
The leading best-picture nominees split
the guild awards: Spotlight claimed the
Screen Actors Guilds top prize, The Big
Short won with producers and The
Revenant brought Alejandro Inarritu a second consecutive Directors Guild of America

award. Many academy voters are also guild

members, which means Inarritu could also
take home his second directing Oscar.
Hes up against Adam McKay (The Big
Short), Tom McCarthy (Spotlight),
George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road) and
Lenny Abrahamson (Room).
DiCaprio (The Revenant) and Brie
Larson (Room) have swept the acting
categories at other awards shows this season and are favored to win on Sunday.
DiCaprio faces Redmayne (The Danish
Girl), Bryan Cranston (Trumbo), Matt
Damon (The Martian) and Michael
Fassbender (Steve Jobs). Larson is nominated alongside Cate Blanchett (Carol),
Jennifer Lawrence (Joy), Charlotte
Rampling (45 Years) and Saoirse Ronan

Regardless of what the Oscars host and

producer may add to the diversity conversation, they plan to present the traditional 24
awards and feature musical performances by
original song nominees Gaga, Smith and
Weeknd and a special appearance by Dave
The show cant solve the diversity problem in the academy, and the academy cant
solve the diversity problem in the entertainment industry, which is really the bigger problem not what gets nominated for
Oscars, but what gets made and who gets
hired, Pond said. The show can address
the issue, as Im sure it will. Beyond that,
its not their job to convince the world that
the academy has changed its tune and will
have a diverse slate of acting nominees
next year.


LOS ANGELES Lady Gaga, a survivor

of sexual assault, says performing Til It
Happens to You her song about sexual
abuse on college campuses at Sundays
Academy Awards will feel liberating and

Its a racket, says Viggo Mortensen,

The nomination process is essentially

so thats why every year, there are only a

of fraud known as phishing, with
hackers out to steal your information
in hopes of using it to file a false tax
Phishing emails remain one of the
top causes of data breaches. While
people are more aware of their danger
than ever before, the lures continue to
evolve and increase in sophistication,
making it tough for the average person
to discern which emails are legitimate
and which ones arent.
Here are a few answers to common
questions about phishing:

Phishing peaks during tax season,
partially because its a time of year
that many people are accustomed to
entering their most personal information such as their Social Security
number or bank account information
on websites, Satnam Narang, senior
security-response manager for security
software maker Symantec, says.
Hackers can use that information to
file false tax returns and steal a refund
This year is no exception. Earlier
this month, the IRS said that it
stopped an attack on the e-filing portion of its website. Hackers tried to use
a combination of malware and
464,000 Social Security numbers that

forward to it, he said.
As construction has continued,
Kevranian said commerce throughout
Broadway has suffered due the pileup of
cars attempting to enter and exit
Highway 101.
The traffic congestion throughout
the area has been tremendous and it has
affected our businesses, he said.
Customers dont want to come to our
Though the project is entering a new
phase of work, construction is expected to continue for roughly another 10
months, depending on weather,
according to Caltrans.
Once traffic is switched to the new
overcrossing, the old existing structure will be demolished.
Over two consecutive weekends in
March, opposing lanes of Highway
101 will be shut down to allow for
crews to bring down the former overcrossing.
Southbound lanes will close between
1 a.m. and 7 a.m. Saturday, March 12,

had been stolen elsewhere to generate
PIN numbers that could be used to file
fraudulent returns.
No taxpayer data was stolen from the
IRS computer systems as a result of the
Phishing also spikes around
Christmas, with attacks in the form of
fake delivery notifications. Thieves
also often tie phishing emails to
major sporting events, or natural disasters like overseas earthquakes, says
Raj Samani, chief technology officer
for Europe, the Middle East and Africa
at Intel Security.
Theyre very much up with the latest news and information, Samani
says. If they can spend a little more
time and get a 0.1 percent increase in
click-throughs, then their campaign
becomes hugely more profitable and


this a lot easier. Thanks to Facebook

and Twitter, details including a persons place of employment, where
they bank, like to shop and the names
and ages of their children are just a few
clicks away.



Narang likens phishing to a person

casually throwing a rod in a lake and
waiting for a bite. Phishing emails
dont contain a lot of specifics, but are
quick and easy to send out in mass
Spear phishing is much more targeted and personalized. The people
behind those attacks spend time
researching their targets in order to
create highly customized emails that
look much more legitimate and are
much more likely to be clicked on.
The rise of social media has made

In an effort to get more people to

click on a link before thinking about
the possible consequences, many
phishing emails will give an impression of scarcity, or include some kind
of time limit.
For example, an email made to
appear to be from a persons bank or
email provider may state that if that
person doesnt click on the enclosed
link within 24 hours, they will be
locked out of their account.
And while poor English and long,
complex web links were previously
sure signs of phishing, theyre not as
prevalent anymore. Many overseas
hackers are no longer using clunky
translation websites, because there are
fluent English speakers who specialize
in translating phishing emails for a
fee, Samani says.
Meanwhile, its become easier to
shorten the Web links that direct a
people to fake websites, he says.
Narang adds that people should be
wary of emails purported to be from
banks, or other companies they do
business with, but didnt opt into
emails from. He also notes that banks
generally dont include Web links in

and Sunday, March 13. Northbound

lanes will close between midnight and
6 a. m. Saturday, March 19, and
Sunday, March 20.
While construction is underway,
signs will be posted detouring traffic
onto city streets, according to
Caltrans. Lane and ramp closures will
be required as part of the project as
The Broadway intersection, built in
1947, is the oldest along the
Peninsula. It was rebuilt in 1971, and
seismically retrofitted in the 1980s.
Nearly 225,000 cars are on the interchange daily.
Once completed, the new overpass
will offer a wider structure with more
lanes, reconfigured ramp connections,
new metering lights and retaining
walls, a reworked intersection at
Rollins Road and Broadway, along
with other improvements.
A majority of the money for the
existing project comes from Measure
A, the countys half-cent sales tax
for transportation, which is responsible for about $51 million of the
construction cost. Another $23 million came courtesy of the state,
Burlingame contributed about $5
million and $3 million was offered

by the federal government.

Businesses and local residents can
expect more noise and construction
throughout the third phase, according
to Caltrans.
Despite the variety of hardships
some local businesses have suffered
throughout the project, Kevranian
said, Caltrans has been responsive to
addressing to concerns raised by local
merchants and residents.
Caltrans has been very cooperative
in working with us, he said.
Last year, heavy equipment operators at the construction site accidentally toppled power lines across Highway
101, snarling traffic for hours while
emergency response personnel safely
extracted drivers from their cars which
had live, downed lines draped across
them. No one was harmed in the incident, and a new tower has since been
installed to replace the damaged structure.
As Kevranian looks toward the project wrapping up over the coming
months, he is optimistic that life
along Broadway will soon return to
We are happy the construction is
coming along and they are opening
the overpass soon, he said.

Ishida, 90, still find time to tap together
whenever they can. Tap dancing has bonded
the women and helped them form a new
friendship well into their golden years.
These days its less dancing though and
more talking.
They are also uniquely bonded in another
Both their families were sent to internment camps after Japan bombed Pearl
Harbor in 1942.
Ishida was a city girl living in San
Francisco when her father was abruptly
arrested and taken away. The remainder of
the family was forced to close their soda
fountain and candy shop on Sutter Street,
pack up their belongings and head off to
Tanforan race track in San Bruno where they
would live in horse stalls. After that, the
family was shipped off to Topaz, Utah, and
Crystal City, Texas, where they would live
for years until the war ended.
Ferry, whose maiden name is Doi, was a
farm girl living in Santa Ana, California,
when her father was arrested and taken away
to an assembly center in Tajunga near the
Hollywood Bowl.
She was able to visit her father but could
only speak to him through a high barbedwire fence. It was one of the saddest memories in her life.

Continued from page 1
or hotel, tax revenue was collected by the
city last year, which is about $1.8 million
more than the previous fiscal year.
The $12.9 million collected in hotel tax
revenue set a new high bar for the citys collection, surpassing the existing record set
the previous fiscal year.
City Manager Mike Futrell celebrated the
citys economic progress.
Were very optimistic about our economy and the growth in Silicon Valley as a
whole, he said. Over the last several
years, the citys economic outlook has
improved, and that has allowed us to address
some of the needs in the city.
In all, the citys general fund grew by
$85.3 million in revenue, fed also in large
part through property and sales tax collection increases.
The city collected an additional $1.5 million in property taxes than the year prior,
pumping $23 million in to the general fund.
Sales tax was the second leading source of

It was so depressing and shocking,
Ferry said.
Her family was forced to relocate to the
Walerga Assembly Center near Sacramento
before ending up at the Tule Lake
Relocation Center in Northern California
where she would live for years. She didnt
see her father for nearly 18 months until he
too was sent to Tule Lake.
Both women said the period is a dark one
in their lives and that they try not to think
about it.
But the memories are still vivid in their
minds more than 70 years later.
On Thursday, both visited the Tanforan
Assembly Center Memorial at the San
Bruno BART station behind the Tanforan
Shopping Center.
Neither knew it even existed.
They strolled through the exhibit and
Ishida recognized her neighborhood from
the photos where Japanese-Americans were
forced to sell everything they had and leave
the city they loved.
She also recognized a man in a photo who
was once her Sunday School teacher. The
memories can bring the women to tears if
they let them.
Ferrys mother died only two days after
the war had ended and it was announced Tule
Lake would be closed.
It split the family apart, sending the girl
to live on her own with another family in
Oakland where she completed high school.
Ishida remembers the censored letters she
received from her father while he was at a
camp in North Dakota.
revenue in the last fiscal year, adding $15.2
million to the economic growth of the city.
The growth of the variety of tax revenue
sources allowed the city to keep full
reserves with $3.2 million in an unrestricted account, $11.6 million stashed away for
emergencies and an additional $2.3 for
budget contingencies.
Officials have allocated some of the additional money toward addressing capital
improvement projects such as parks, building maintenance and fixes to underground
infrastructure, said Futrell.
Futrell commended the propensity of officials for responsible budget management.
While we are very optimistic and upbeat
about the economy, we recognize we have
some serious challenges to tackle and the
extra revenue will be put to good use, he
The report did not account for the citys
new half-cent sales tax which was approved
by voters in the fall election, past the end of
the previous fiscal year.
The half-cent sales tax is expected to generate roughly $210 million in additional
revenue over 30 years, slated to be used for
a variety of capital improvement projects,

The letters had holes punched in them

from censors and Ishida said she didnt
know what her father had written. But what
he did send in the letters were pressed wildflowers.
I kept them for years, Ishida said.
Ferry remembers someone sending her
mother a tin of cookies while they were at
Tanforan. It was a little treat that brought
joy daily to the family.
It left my mother in tears, she said.
Everything about most of the experience
was horrible for both.
There was no privacy and the food was
very bad. Food poisoning was so rampant
that a bowl of rice is all many would eat.
Ishidas mother grew radishes and that
such as the potential construction of a new
civic center.
As the citys fiscal health has improved in
recent years, so has the economic standing
of its residents, according to the report.
A demographics study shows the per capita personal annual income in South San
Francisco was $30,923 last year, which is
roughly $400 more than the year prior, as
residents have enjoyed incremental but
steady growth over the past decade.
Personal annual income has increased by
roughly $1,000 since 2000, according to
the report, and is up from $26,050 in 2004.
Income has bulged and unemployment has
shrunk, as only 4.5 percent of the citys
estimated 65,749 residents were without
jobs last year. Joblessness has decreased
precipitously in recent years, down from
