Clerks rush to handle influx ahead of primary

By Juliet Williams

SACRAMENTO California elections

clerks braced for an influx of work this year
as they prepared for unexpectedly close
presidential primary contests at the same
time proponents readied petitions for
dozens of measures hoping to qualify for the
November ballot.
More than 20 campaigns are seeking to
qualify initiatives this year because of a
lower-than-usual threshold for signatures,
including high-profile campaigns to legalize recreational marijuana use, restrict guncontrol laws and extend Gov. Jerry Browns
increases on income and sales taxes.
The two events have left the states 58

Boys death on Higway 35
linked to speed, wet roadway
California Highway Patrol officials said
speed and a wet roadway Saturday morning
appear to be responsible for a crash in unincorporated San Mateo County that killed a
Saratoga teen.
CHP officials received a call at 11:57 a.m.
reporting a vehicle down an embankment of
southbound state Highway 35 south of
Alpine Road.
The officers who responded found a 2015
4-door Audi sedan down the embankment
and a boy trapped inside.
CHP officials said it appears the 17-yearold was speeding when he lost control of the
car on the wet roadway, veered off the road
and hit a tree.
The boy was pronounced dead when he was
pulled from the car.

Its almost a perfect storm of activity,

said Secretary of State Alex Padilla, whose
job includes ensuring elections run smoothly for the state.
He asked the state for an extra $32 million
to help; the Legislature approved half that
and Brown signed off on it.
We did anticipate and budget for a typical
presidential year bump, Padilla said. What
we have on our hands is far and above what
we expected as far as excitement out there,
energy out there.
Many counties have hired temporary
workers to help process the thousands of
signatures coming in.
Its just really difficult timing. We
havent seen something like this in
decades, where you have all of these petitions hitting right before the primary like
this, said Orange County Registrar of
Voters Neal Kelley, current chairman of the
California Association of Clerks and

Election Officials.
Beyond the rush of printing voter information pamphlets, ballots and registration
cards, there are a lot of rules to remind
would-be voters about, some of them complicated: Democrats allow non-partisan
voters to cast ballots in their race between
former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, but only
if they mail back a little postcard to the
county elections officer specifically
requesting a Democratic ballot.
Its going to be huge block letters:
Heres your registration, because the reality is theres voters who pay attention every
four years, for the general presidential
election, Kelley said.
Although theres no contest on the
Republican side since businessman Donald
Trumps two remaining rivals, Texas Sen. Ted
Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, dropped
out, all three will remain on the ballot.

Drugs and alcohol do not appear to have

played a part in the boys death.
CHP officials issued a traffic alert at 12:43
p.m. when they closed both directions of
the highway to investigate the crash.
Both directions of the highway reopened
at 4:11 p.m.
Anyone who witnessed the crash is being
asked to call Officer Jared Traub at (650)

One suspect was described as a possibly

light skinned black or Polynesian man in
his early 20s, about 6 feet tall, weighing
170 pounds.
The second suspect was described as a
light skinned black man in his early 20s,
about 6 feet tall and weighing 160 pounds,
according to police.
Police have released a photo of a person
of interest in the case, who police say may
have pertinent information about the robbery.
Anyone with information about the robbery or the person of interest is asked to
contact Daly City police at (650) 9918119. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can call (650) 873-2467.

Police are seeking a person of interest in
connection with an armed robbery that

On April 17, around 8:45 p.m., police

Its a fight for second place in US Senate race



are usually about winning.
Californias U.S. Senate race is a
fight for No. 2.
The states unusual election
rules have spawned a low-key contest this spring to determine
which candidates advance to the
November election for the first
open Senate seat in a generation.
The quirky part: only the top two
vote-getters in the June 7 primary
move on.
The front-runner to replace retiring liberal icon Barbara Boxer is
not in question: Democratic state
Attorney General Kamala Harris
got in early and everyone else is
chasing her. For now, the battle is
for second place.
Thats where it gets more dicey.
Orange County congresswoman

Demo crat ,
appears positioned to be the
runner-up, setting up a potential November
battle within
the states dominant political
Kamala Harris party. But several
littleknown Republicans are also in the
mix, representing a possible, if
distant, chance of a surprise on
election day.
Headlines in the Senate race
have been scarce, and the candidates dont have enough money
for widespread TV advertising, the
typical way to reach voters in the
vast state. A long list of 34 candidates presents its own puzzle at
the ballot box.
Voters, meanwhile, appear in
the dark or just indifferent. Polls
show the largest single group

remains undecided.
Its unprecedented to see a
Senate race with this little activity, said longtime Democratic
consultant Roy Behr, who has
advised Boxer.
Democrats are strongly favored
to hold the seat the party controls every statewide office and
holds a 2.7-million edge in voter
registration. But Republicans
have a lot at stake, even in losing.
GOP insiders worry that the
badly weakened California party
needs to make a credible showing
in the Senate contest to attract a
viable candidate for governor in
2018. Another troubling sign:
independents could soon eclipse
Republicans as the states second
largest voter group, behind
The problem for the party is that
the leading Republicans in the
Senate race former state GOP
chairmen Tom Del Beccaro and Duf

Sundheim, and physicist and

entrepreneur Ron Unz are
essentially unknown. Del Beccaro
and Sundheim have struggled with
fundraising, and its not clear how
much money Unz will commit to
the race from his own checkbook.
One hope for GOP candidates is
that in the age of unbridled political spending, an outside super
PAC will funnel millions of dollars into the contest, boosting
one of the Republicans or dinging
Sanchez in an attempt to advance a
Republican to November.
But the Democratic tilt of
California makes it a poor investment for GOP donors, while the 12
Republicans on the ballot threaten to scatter the party vote.
A political lifeline appears
unlikely to come from the Senate
Leadership Fund, a super PAC set
up by political allies of Senate
McConnell, R-Ky. , to help

Nursing homes turn to eviction to drop difficult patients

By Matt Sedensky

NEW YORK Nursing homes

are increasingly evicting their
most challenging residents, testing protections for some of societys most vulnerable, advocates
for the aged and disabled say.
Those targeted for eviction are
frequently poor and suffering from
dementia, with families unsure of
what to do, according to residents
allies. Removing them allows an
often stretched-thin staff to avoid
the demands of labor-intensive

patients in favor of ones who are

easier and more profitable.
When they get tired of caring
for the resident, they kick the resident out, said Richard Mollot of
the Long Term Care Community
Coalition, a New York advocacy
Complaints and lawsuits across
the U.S. point to a spike in evictions even as observers note
available records only give a
glimpse of the problem.
An Associated Press analysis of
federal data from the Long-Term
Care Ombudsman Program finds

complaints about discharges and

evictions are up about 57 percent
since 2000. It was the top-reported grievance in 2014, with 11,331
such issues logged by ombudsmen, who work to resolve problems faced by residents of nursing
homes, assisted living facilities
and other adult-care settings.
The American Health Care
Association, which represents
nursing homes, defends the discharge process as lawful and necessary to remove residents who
cant be kept safe or who endanger
the safety of others, and says

processes are in place to ensure

evictions arent done improperly.
Dr. David Gifford, a senior vice
president with the group, said a
national policy discussion is necessary because there are a growing
number of individuals with complex, difficult-to-manage cases
who outpace the current model of
what a nursing home offers.
There are times these individuals cant be managed or they
require so much staff attention to
manage them that the other residents are endangered, he said.

At the same time, Trump complained that he was blindsided

For Obamas legacy, a few bright spots

By Josh Lederman

cheering at the White House for
Donald Trumps success. Yet for
President Barack Obama, things
could be worse.
Trumps ascent as the presumptive Republican nominee makes
some of Obamas main achievements more likely to survive after
the next president takes over.
Trumps policy prescriptions,
while full of contradictions and
short on specifics, are generally
closer to Obamas than those of
Trumps closest GOP rival, Texas
Sen. Ted Cruz.
Where Cruz opposed Obamas
outreach to Cuba, Trump said its
fine, though he would have handled it differently. Trump even has
embraced a few essential elements
of Obamas health law, long the
bane of the Republican Party. On

To be sure, a
Trump presidency would be bad
news for most of Obamas legacy.
After all, Trump has said Obama
may go down as the worst president in history.
Trump has said that if hes elected, hell terminate Obamas immigration actions and build a wall on
the border with Mexico. He rails
against Obamas trade deals and
laughs off concerns about climate
change, while saying he would
repeal Dodd-Frank reforms.

From starting his political
campaign on the back of a birther
conspiracy about the president to
promising to overturn the many
accomplishments of the Obama
administration, Donald Trump is
too much of a risk for anyone who
cares about President Obamas
legacy, said Jesse Ferguson, a
Clinton campaign spokesman.
With Trump as the Republican
nominee, Obamas aides are more
confident that Obama will be succeeded by a Democrat, a view bolstered by the deep fractures that
Trumps ascent is carving in the
GOP. The big question at the
White House is whether Trump can
successfully recast himself in the
general election without triggering backlash from voters seeking
ideological purity.

Like his former GOP challengers, Trump opposes Obamas

described something closer to
Obamas approach than what other
Republicans prefer.
Trump wants to keep the coverage guarantees for existing conditions.

US struggles to convince Iraqis it doesnt support IS


BAGHDAD For nearly two

years, U. S. airstrikes, military
advisers and weapons shipments
have helped Iraqi forces roll back
the Islamic State group. The U.S.led coalition has carried out more
than 5,000 airstrikes against IS
targets in Iraq at a total cost of $7
billion since August 2014, including operations in Syria. On
Tuesday a U.S. Navy SEAL was the
third serviceman to die fighting IS
in Iraq.
But many Iraqis still arent convinced the Americans are on their

TV networks repeat conspiracy

jihadi group to sow chaos in the

region in order to seize its oil.
Despite spending more than $10
million on public outreach in Iraq
last year, the U.S. government
appears to have made little headway
in dispelling such rumors. An
unscientific survey by the State
Department of Iraqi residents last
year found that 40 percent believe
that U.S. policy is working to
destabilize Iraq and control its natural resources, and a third believe
America supports terrorism in
general and (IS) specifically.
Skepticism about U.S. motives
is deeply rooted in Iraq, where
many still blame the chaos after
the 2003 invasion that toppled
Saddam Hussein on American malice rather than incompetence. The
conspiracy theories are also
stoked by neighboring Iran,
which backs powerful militias and
political parties with active media

Among the most vocal critics is

al-Ahad TV a 24-hour satellite
channel funded by Asaib Ahl alHaq, an Iranian-backed militia
allied with the Iraqi government.
The channel airs front-line reports
and political talk shows where the
allegedly harmful role of the U.S.
government frequently comes up.
The U.S. aims at weakening
Iraq and the Arab world as well as
the Shiites, al-Ahads spokesman
Atheer al-Tariq said. They spare
no efforts to destabilize Iraq and
neighboring countries in order to
continue selling weapons and
strengthening their presence in
the region through establishing
more military bases, he added.
While supervising the channels
war reporting last year, he claimed
to have witnessed incidents when
U.S. forces helped IS. As Iraqi
security forces prepared to enter
the city of Tikrit in April, he said
two U. S. helicopters evacuated

senior militants. A few months

later, during an operation to retake
the Beiji oil refinery, crates of
weapons, ammunition and food
were dropped over militant-held
territory, he said.
Is it logical to believe that
America, the source of technology
and science, could fire a rocket or
drop aid materials in a mistaken
way? he asked.
Videos uploaded to social media
by front-line militiamen purport
to tell a similar story. One shows
U. S. military MREs, meals,
ready-to-eat, as well as uniforms
and weapons said to have been
found in an area held by IS.
Another shows the interrogation
of a captured IS militant. Check
out his boots, they are from the
U. S. army, a fighter says.
Another fighter points to a pile of
rocket-propelled grenades he says
were made in the U.S. and shipped

Traffic challenges in San Mateo County

By John Ford

ets face it, trafc in San

Mateo County is bad and getting worse. Our county is the
beneciary of a robust economy, but a
by-product of that success is trafc
congestion that now extends well
beyond the traditional peak hour commute periods and locations.
While there are some promising
projects being considered to ease the
trafc congestion in San Mateo
County, most of them are many years
and millions of dollars down the road.
In the meantime, its up to all of us to
make small changes to our commutes
so that collectively we can make
progress in reducing trafc congestion in the county.
Can you trade your drive to work for
a bike ride or a transit trip? How
about carpooling with coworkers?
Does your employer have a telework
option? San Mateo Countys transportation demand management
agency,, wants to know
if you are up to the challenge. We recognize that most commuters cant
leave their cars at home every day, but
using a commute alternative one or
two days a week can make a huge difference.
We know that driving alone to and
from work has typically been the
most convenient option for most
commuters but, given the increase in
trafc over the past couple of years,
that equation has started to change for

many. In an effort
to get people to
consider options
to driving alone, is
hosting a countywide Commuter
Challenge and anyone who commutes
to, from, or
through San Mateo County is invited
to participate. The challenge has been
underway since April 1 and has been working with
San Mateo County businesses and
organizations of all sizes to encourage their employees to bike, carpool,
vanpool or ride transit to work,
instead of driving alone.
So far, Commuter Challenge participants have logged over 600,000
miles of alternative commutes which
has resulted in an estimated 150 tons
of CO2 reductions. And those commuters who reported using an active
mode like biking or walking have
burned over 1.5 million calories on
their logged commutes.
The purpose of the Commuter
Challenge is to get people who regularly drive alone to try active and public transportation, or to coordinate
with coworkers and friends for a more
sustainable commute to work. Not
only are commuters likely to save
money on their commute, but they
will also be making a healthier and
environmentally friendly choice
when it comes to getting to and from

From now through the end of May,

San Mateo County commuters can
keep track of their commute trips on
the challenge website Everyone who logs a trip is
eligible to win weekly prizes as well
as grand prizes. More importantly,
those commuters who use alternatives
to driving alone are doing their part
to help us improve the quality of life
for everyone in San Mateo County.
If you need help getting started,
visit the website where
you can apply for free transit tickets,
nd carpool partners and plan routes
that combine multiple modes of transportation. Additionally, the Caltrain,
SamTrans, BART and San Francisco
Bay Ferry websites can help commuters navigate what initially might
seem like a complex public transit
network. These transit agencies are
dealing with capacity issues of their
own during peak commute hours, but
are still encouraging commuters to
give them a try.
Join the 2016 Commuter Challenge
and become part of the solution for
San Mateo County.
John Ford is the ex ecutiv e director of, formerly k nown as the
Peninsula Traffic Congestion Relief
Alliance, San Mateo County s transportation demand management agency,
whose primary objectiv e is to reduce
the number of single occupant v ehicle
trips to, from and through the county.

My historic

recently learned from my high school email chain

some interesting news about two famous New
Rochelle, New York residents.
Yankee legend Lou Gehrigs former New Rochelle home is
on the market for $399,999 or more than $100,000 below
market value. Its a four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath house
that The Iron Horse bought for his parents in 1928 and
in which he lived for ve years until he married.
According to Gehrig biographer Jonathan Eig, it was
not a grand, ostentation
It was a modest, efcient
and humble place, much like
the baseball legend himself, Eig wrote.
Eig wrote that Gehrig was
very tight with money. He
grew up very poor and, once
he received a major contract
with the Yankees, he saw it
as an opportunity to take
care of his parents.
He was a very shy person, he was never a man
about town, even when he
was arguably one of the most handsome and eligible bachelors in New York. He didnt go out at night, he went home to
help his mother set the table and wash the dishes after dinner. After marrying Eleanor, in 1933, the All-star tried to
move his bride into the family home.
He assumed that they would move in and take the smaller
of the two biggest bedrooms, but Eleanor didnt go for that
and put her foot down. As a compromise, Gehrig bought an
apartment down the block.
He played 17 seasons for the Yankees, died in 1941 at age
37 of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, which became
known as Lou Gehrigs disease.
One of New Rochelles most illustrious citizens was
famous Revolutionary War hero Thomas Paine. His grave
site is at North and Paine avenues. But thats only half the
In 1819, English pamphleteer William Cobbett became
disgusted with the uncelebrated burial site of the author of
Common Sense, who died in poverty a decade before. So
he decided to dig up Paines body and take him back to
England, where he planned a lavish tomb and memorial.
Cobbett and some co-conspirators set off in the middle of
the night for New Rochelle, and had the cofn out of the
ground by dawn. In England, however, things went bad. The
funds for the memorial never materialized, and Cobbett
ended up keeping Paines body in an old trunk until his own
death in 1835.
Its not entirely clear what happened after that. Various
people have come forward throughout the years claiming to
have Paines skull or other bones, but none of those body
parts have been proven to be his. An 1847 narrative in the
collection of The Thomas Paine National Historical
Association on the lost body purported to have traced the
bones to a man named Mr. B. Tilly in London; legend has it
that some of the bones may have been turned into buttons.
New Rochelles rst settlers were Huguenots (French
Protestants) in 1688, who were eeing religious persecution
in France. Many were artisans and craftsmen from the city of
La Rochelle, thus the choice of the name New Rochelle.
In 1775, General George Washington stopped in New
Rochelle on his way to assume command of the Army of the
United Colonies in Massachusetts. The British Army briey
occupied sections of New Rochelle in 1776. Following
British victory in the Battle of White Plains, New Rochelle
became part of a Neutral Ground for General Washington
to regroup his troops. After the Revolutionary War ended in
1784, Paine was given a farm in New Rochelle for his service to the cause of independence. The farm, totaling about
300 acres, had been conscated from its owners by the state
of New York due to their Tory activities.
Paines Common Sense was a pamphlet advocating
independence from Great Britain. It was published anonymously Jan. 10, 1776, and became an immediate sensation.
It was sold and distributed widely and read aloud at taverns
and meeting places. As of 2006, it remains the all-time best
selling American title, and is still in print today.
Common Sense made public a persuasive and impassioned case for independence which, before the pamphlet,
had not yet been given serious intellectual consideration.
He connected independence with common dissenting
Protestant beliefs structuring Common Sense as if it were
a sermon. Historian Gordon S. Wood described Common
Sense as the most incendiary and popular pamphlet of the
entire revolutionary era.

Why Aprils hiring slowdown

may show caution on economy
By Christopher S. Rugaber

employers signaled their caution
about a sluggish economy by
slowing their pace of hiring in
April after months of robust job
At the same time, companies
raised pay, and their employees
worked more hours - a combination that lifted income and, if sustained, could quicken the U. S.
As a whole, the governments
report Friday pointed to an
American job market that continues to generate steady hiring,
though at a rate that may be starting to slow. Employers added
160,000 jobs in April, well below
the average gain of 243,000 in the
prior six months. But the unemployment rate remained a low 5
percent, roughly where its been
since last fall.
Employment was never going
to continue rising at more than
200,000 a month indenitely,
said Paul Ashworth, an economist
at Capital Economics, a consulting rm. Those monthly gains
are simply unsustainable at a
time of tepid economic growth.
Over the past six months, the

economy has expanded at an annual pace of just 1 percent.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that
some employers have become
concerned that sluggish growth
could weaken customer demand
and limit the need for more
Still, most economists said they
were not worried about the weaker
hiring in April. In large part, it
reected declines in retail and construction hiring, an expected pullback after hiring in those areas
surged in the rst quarter of 2016.
And job gains have slipped
before - most recently in January without signaling any persistent
The gures are a yellow light,
not a red ag, said Andrew
Chamberlain, chief economist at
Glassdoor, an employment website.
Aprils hiring slowdown may
also reect a long-expected shift
to a more sustainable pace of job
creation. The job market has added
200,000-plus jobs a month for
more than three years. Thats harder to achieve once unemployment
falls to 5 percent, consistent with
a nearly recovered economy.
The good news is that more
people were employed, they
worked longer hours and got paid

more for it, said Robert Dye,

chief economist at Comerica
The slowdown in economies in
the United States and overseas has
led to volatility in nancial markets and complicated the Federal
Reserves plans to gradually raise
interest rates.
Many analysts had expected the
Fed to raise the short-term rate it

less likely. Market-based measures suggest that the Fed will raise

hire more engineers, machinists

and customer-service workers
because newer products are offsetting losses overseas.
Most of the economys new
jobs require higher education or
skilled training. In April, workers
without college degrees suffered
job losses.
The unemployment rate for college graduates is now just 2.4 percent, less than half the national
average. Employers have hired
2.3 million college graduates in
the past 12 months while letting
go of 425,000 workers with a
high school diploma or less.
Despite last months pullback,
hiring at Aprils pace should over
time be enough to keep up with
population growth and lower the
unemployment rate, economists
It should also help heal some
underlying scars from the Great
Recession in part by encouraging
people who had stopped looking
for work to resume their job hunts,
Chamberlain said.
For four straight months, strong
hiring increased the proportion of
adults who either had a job or were
looking for one. That was an
encouraging sign because it meant
Americans were more optimistic
about their prospects. But that g-

Facebooks Sandberg pays tribute to single moms


MENLO PARK Facebooks No. 2 executive Sheryl Sandberg says she never realized how hard it is to be a single parent until
her husband died a year ago.
In a touching Mothers Day weekend post
on Facebook, Sandberg says the odds are
stacked against single moms. Many live in
poverty, work two jobs or dont get paid
leave to care for themselves or children if
they get sick, she says.
I did not really get how hard it is to succeed at work when you are overwhelmed at
home, Sandberg wrote.
She called on leaders to rethink public
and corporate policies to better support sin-

gle mothers. She didnt say whether anything will change at Facebook, where she is
chief operating officer.
Sandbergs husband, Dave, died in a treadmill accident a year ago while on vacation
in Mexico.
Sandberg says she never realized how
often situations come up where shes unable
to stop her son or daughter from crying.
What would Dave do if he were here? she
asks herself. Sandberg writes that she never
realized how many events such as fatherdaughter dances there are at schools and
how hard they are for children without dads.
The U.S., Sandberg says, is the only
developed economy in the world that does
not provide workers paid maternity leave.

She says we need to rethink policies to better support single mothers. The post doesnt address Facebooks own policies.
Facebook does offer U.S. employees up to
four months of paid parental leave. Its
among several high-tech companies that
offer benefits around childbirth.
Sandberg concedes shes fortunate not to
have the financial worries that many single
moms face. She admits that in her 2013
book Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will
to Lead, she should have written more
about women raising children without a
partner. I will never experience and understand all of the challenges most single
moms face, but I understand a lot more than
I did a year ago.

Rockies 2, Giants 0

By Rick Eymer

SAN FRANCISCO Jeff Samardzija had

another solid performance for San
Francisco. Eddie Butler was just a little better.
Samardzija pitched into the eighth
inning, but the Giants managed just six hits
in a 2-0 loss to Butler and the Colorado
Rockies on Sunday.
A really impressive outing, San
Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said.

Thats a tough loss for him. We didnt do

enough offensively to help him out. He did
a great job of saving the bullpen.
Samardzija (4-2) struck out nine in 7 2/3

eight hits. The right-hander had won each of
his last three starts.
I love facing those guys, Samardzija

Carlmont boys earn

first PAL Bay crown

Generally speaking, being corralled by

ones team and thrown into a swimming
pool is a bad thing. But Carlmont swim
coaches Fred Farley and Jim Kelly reveled in
the experience Saturday at Woodside.
Farley and Kelly got the traditional baptism by their team after the Carlmont boys
claimed the title at the Peninsula Athletic

marking the first PAL swimming crown in
program history.
Last season, the Scots took second place
at the annual meet, falling 2 points shy of
first-place Menlo-Atherton. So, this year,

New rivals await Derby

winner at the Preakness
By Beth Harris

LOUISVILLE, Ky. Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist heads to Baltimore on Monday to

prepare for the Preakness, where the undefeated colt could face up to 13 rivals including
nine new shooters seeking to derail his Triple
Crown bid.
Nyquist had been walked, bathed and
returned to his stall at Churchill Downs by 6
a.m. Sunday, less than 12 hours after he won
the Derby by 1 1/4 lengths and improved his
record to 8-0. Trainer Doug ONeill had already
gone back to Southern California for a few
days before returning east to rejoin his bay
colt at Pimlico.
ONeill told a track official that Nyquist was
doing great and looking bright-eyed the
morning after. The colt is the first unbeaten
Derby winner with eight victories since
Majestic Prince in 1969.
He will put that record on the line in the 1
3/16-mile Preakness on May 21 against a mix
of old and new rivals. The field is limited to 14
Derby runner-up Exaggerator, who has lost
all four meetings with Nyquist, and ninthplace finisher Lani, who was beaten 10 3/4
lengths, are expected to return in the
Preakness. Also possible are third-place
Derby finisher Gun Runner, who was beaten
by 4 1/2 lengths, and Suddenbreakingnews,
who was fifth.
The newcomers are Laoban and Cherry
Wine, who were both entered in the Derby but
didnt get in the race; Lexington Stakes winner Collected, trained by Bob Baffert; Federico
Tesio winner Awesome Speed; Stradivari,
trained by Todd Pletcher; and California
Chrome Stakes winner Uncle Lino.

Also under consideration are Pat Day Mile

winner Sharp Azteca; Wood Memorial thirdplace finisher Adventist; and Florida Derby
third-place finisher Fellowship.
Keith Desormeaux, who trains Exaggerator,
said he would like a rematch in the Preakness.
He was the closest threat, said J. Paul
Reddam, who owns Nyquist. If I were him, I
would want a rematch too. The horses are not
machines, so it will be a great race.
Reddam, ONeill and jockey Mario Gutierrez
enjoyed their second Derby victory, having
won in 2012 with Ill Have Another.
There was no wild, drunken party, said
Steve Rothblum, manager for Reddam Racing.
With a horse this good, we wanted to treat it
with respect and the reverence that we owe the
Ill Have Another also won the Preakness
that year but was retired on the eve of the
Belmont with a leg injury.
Nyquist is following a schedule similar to
Ill Have Another, who also spent the two
weeks leading up to the Preakness at Pimlico.
Nyquist came into Louisville a week before
the Derby after training at Keeneland in nearby Lexington.
This year we are a lot more mature, ONeill
said. The people that were surrounding
Nyquist are a lot more mature. It felt really
good to be the (Derby) favorite. I felt it was a
real honor. Part of me was, God, I want to represent Nyquist in the proper way. I think the
whole crew did a pretty good job, so it felt
good being the favorite.
Nyquist is expected to have a light training
schedule between now and the Preakness.
Hes way too fit already, said Leandro
Mora, ONeills chief assistant. I dont think
were going to push it as much as a few others.
We found what he likes to do.

Cleveland finishes off Hawks in four games

By Paul Newberry

ATLANTA Clevelands Big Three is on

quite a roll.
Two playoff series, two sweeps.
Now, the Cavaliers get to rest up for the
Eastern Conference finals.
Kevin Love scored 27
points, LeBron James
knocked down a huge shot
with 39.2 seconds to go,
and Kyrie Irving turned in
another dazzling performance to lead Cleveland past
the Atlanta Hawks 100-99
on Sunday.
Kevin Love
The Cavaliers finished
off the second-round series
with four straight wins, just as they did in the
opening round against Detroit.
This is more than I dreamed of, Irving
said. Its what I genuinely enjoy about basketball, playing with great guys.
When James returned to Cleveland after four
years in South Beach, winning the franchises
first championship was the only goal that

Cavaliers 100, Hawks 99

mattered. Love was acquired from Minnesota
to complete the dynamic trio, but the
Cavaliers came up short in Year 1 when both
Love and Irving went down with injuries in
the playoffs.
Now, fully healthy and finally comfortable
together after some rocky moments, LeBron
& Co. cruised into the conference finals to
meet either Toronto or Miami. The Raptors
lead that series 2-1.
Were in a great rhythm right now, said
James, who won two titles with the Heat and
wants to bring one home. We know exactly
where we want to be on the floor.
Love carried Cleveland much of the game,
hitting one 3-pointer after another as the
Hawks continually left him open in the corner. He went cold down the stretch but still finished 8 of 15 from beyond the arc. He made
only one two-point basket with his toe on
the stripe.
James and Irving finished with 21 points
apiece. James also doled out nine assists,
while Irving had eight.

The Hawks had one last chance to extend the

series and put the ball in the hands of Dennis
Schroder, who led the team with 21 points.
The speedy point guard drove into the lane but
was surrounded by James and Tristan
Thompson. Schroder slipped and James tied
up the ball, forcing a huge mismatch of a jump
ball with 2.8 seconds left.
I just tried to be aggressive, said Schroder,
who was at least hoping to draw a foul. They
didnt call it, so we cant take it back. Weve
got to live with that.
With a 7-inch height advantage on the
jump, James easily flicked the ball toward the
sideline. Paul Millsap wound up with it, flinging up a desperation shot, but it was after the
buzzer and didnt go in anyway.
Cleveland launched into a raucous celebration on Atlantas home court.
We know Atlanta is a tough team, and the
closeout game is the hardest game, said
coach Tyronn Lue, who took over the
Cavaliers during the season after David Blatt
was fired.
This was a rematch of last years conference
finals, in which the Hawks were the top seed
but got swept by the Cavaliers. With

Cleveland seeded No. 1 this time, the result

was the same. Atlanta Hawks had fourth-quarter leads in three of the four games but wasnt
strong enough to finish, dropping to 0-12 in
the postseason against the Cavs.
Schroder put the Hawks up 97-96 on a drive
with 1:31 remaining. But James, after having
one shot blocked and missing two tip-ins, got
another chance when a video review overturned a call that Cleveland had knocked the
ball out of bounds. Off the inbounds pass,
Matthew Dellavadova found James streaking
into the lane and Millsap was called for goaltending.
Even though the call stood after another
review, Millsap insisted it was a clean block.
Ill believe that all summer, he said.
Schroders next shot was blocked by
Thompson, and the Cavaliers isolated James
on the wing against Millsap. James stepped
back and hit the jumper, pushing Cleveland
ahead 100-97. Schroder scored on a drive with
34.4 seconds left and James missed the potential clinching 3.
It didnt matter.
The Cavaliers buckled down at the defensive
end and wrapped up the series.

Woodside growing from gold-medal roots

won the downhill title at the Junior World
Championships in Sochi, Russia.
But a growth spurt had something to say
about Karl Arvidssons destiny. While he
was an underclassman at Woodside, he was
still approximately the same height at his
brother at 5-11, but sprouted up the summer

Goldberg was actually accepted at Cal academically, but turned it down to swim at the

his finish in 23.26 seconds was over one

Captain America: Civil War a massive hit

By Lindsey Bahr

LOS ANGELES What superhero fatigue? Disney and Marvels

Captain America: Civil War, the
13th film in the Marvel Cinematic
Universe, has strong-armed its
way to becoming the fifth-highest
domestic opening ever according
to comScore estimates Sunday.
The film grossed a massive
$181. 8 million this weekend,
bumping Iron Man 3 out of the
top five all time debuts. Civil
War now ranks right below
Marvels The Avengers and
Avengers: Age of Ultron, which
hold the third and fourth place
Its nearly double the opening
of the previous Captain America
film, The Winter Soldier, which
opened to $95 million in April
2014, but that is at least partially
attributable to the fact that Civil
War is basically an Avengers
movie in disguise.
Directed by Joe and Anthony
Russo, Civil War sees an ideological showdown between Iron
Man (Robert Downey Jr. ) and
Captain America (Chris Evans)
and is packed to the brim with
Avengers old and new. Its been
very well-received by critics and,
now, audiences, who gave the film
a promising A CinemaScore,
which should bode well for the
films longevity. Audiences were
59 percent male and mostly adults.

Civil War cost a hefty $250 million to produce but has already far-surpassed that thanks to a healthy international debut last weekend and a big
bump from China this weekend.
Teens made up only 11 percent of
the audience.
After a $75 million first day, the
opening was right in line with
expectations, and according to
comScore senior media analyst
Paul Dergarabedian, is well on its
way to becoming a $1 billion
Weve become so accustomed
to these massive numbers, now
were putting up single day numbers that would be very noteworthy opening weekends on their
own, Dergarabedian said.
Civil War cost a hefty $250
million to produce but has already
far-surpassed that thanks to a
healthy international debut last
weekend and a big bump from
China this weekend. In sum, the

superhero showdown has earned

$678.4 million globally to date.
Great reviews and word of mouth
will surely distinguish Civil
War from Batman v. Superman:
Dawn of Justice, which, by comparison, opened to $166 million
in late March but fell sharply over
the subsequent weekends. That
film has earned $327.3 domestically million to date and this
weekend placed 10th with $1 million.
As is to be expected when
theres only one new wide release,
the rest of films on the box office
charts looked paltry in comparison. The only big change was that
Civil War effectively ended the
three week first-place run of
Disneys The Jungle Book

which came in second with $21.9

million, bringing its domestic
total to $285 million.
Aside from the flop of The
Finest Hours in January, Disney
is having a great 2016 and this
weekend surpassed the $1 billion
domestic mark in a record 128
days. It took 165 days to reach
that threshold last year. The
Marvel element is a key portion of
that and one that other studios are
trying to match.
Universe and the Marvel Studios
team as led by Kevin Feige has
really been a model for consistency in extraordinary storytelling,
said Dave Hollis, Disneys executive vice president of theatrical
distribution. Kevin has established this interlocking, interwoven cinematic universe that is
not just unprecedented in terms of
its size and scale, but also its really unparalleled in entertainment
today, the $9 billion in business
that theyve done in 12 movies.
Hollis credits the continued and
growing success of the franchise
to Feiges commitment to quality
and also the strategy of each year
releasing one Marvel film that is
familiar to audiences and one that
is new. In 2015, that meant having an Avengers movie and
Ant-Man, and in 2014, it was a
Captain America movie and
Guardians of the Galaxy. This
year, the new element will be
Doctor Strange, which stars

Top 10 movies
1. Captain America: Civil War,
$181.8 million ($220 million international).
2.The Jungle Book, $21.9 million ($24.1 million international).
3.Mothers Day, 9 million ($3
million international).
4.The Huntsman:Winters War,

10.Batman v Superman: Dawn
of Justice, $1 million.
Benedict Cumberbatch and debuts
in November.
You couldnt have a better lead
in for the summer, said
Dergarabedian, who noted that
Memorial Day weekend should
also be quite significant with the
release of Alice Through the
Looking Glass and X-Men:
Even though on paper it might
not look as strong as last year, the
summer of 2016 shouldnt be
underestimated, Dergarabedian

as the region is in the midst of a housing
crisis and traffic on area highways becomes
increasingly clogged but each has their
own ideas on how to solve them.
Improved access to health care and education are also issues on which the candidates
are campaigning.
When it comes to tackling the housing
crisis, Canepa supports a $300 million
bond measure to leverage with nonprofit
partners to build more housing, particularly
along the El Camino Real corridor close to
transit centers.
Guingona, however, thinks throwing
money at the problem wont solve the crisis although he would like to see more
Measure A sales tax revenue be earmarked
for affordable housing.

Affordable housing/local control

Daly City has done its part in building
affordable housing but its a local control
issue, said Guingona, a criminal defense
I am an advocate for density, said
Guingona, who also added that a good economy can lead to bad traffic. He thinks cities
could ease restrictions on density to build
more affordable housing.
There is no short-term answer to solving the crisis although building more housing is the solution, he said.
Fisicaro said the private sector needs to
be engaged to help solve the housing crisis.
The nonprofit Housing Leadership
Council estimates the county needs to build
24,000 affordable homes for very low- and
extremely low-income families to meet the
needs of the current workforce.
In the last three years, San Mateo County
has added 40,000 new jobs but built only
3,000 new homes.
The only solution you hear is rent control but it wont work here, Fisicaro said.
The problem is getting private owners to
release their land for affordable housing,
she said.
How do you convince them to build that
housing? she said.

An effort to solve the housing crisis must

go beyond the Closing the Jobs/Housing
Gap Task Force that has been meeting for
the past several months, she said.
The task force is expected to release a
report soon on its findings.
The average rent in the county for a onebedroom is now $2,575 a month, a 52.3
percent increase in four years.
Lentz envisions himself as a conduit
between the cities and county when it comes
to affordable housing.
We have to look at housing elements and
help cities achieve their goals, Lentz said.
He thinks school districts, which are rich
in land and poor in cash, should be engaged
also to help build more workforce housing.
The county should also help nonprofit
agencies like HIP Housing to expand services such as shared housing.
He does not favor rent control but said
some large landlords have voluntarily
capped yearly rent increases and that others
should follow.
For Lentz, education is the biggest issue
in the county, especially early education.
We need to get kids reading at grade
level, Lentz said.
He also wants to capture teens who dont
go to college so that they have access to
trade schools or vocational programs at the
community college level. Universal preschool should also be a priority, he said.

Vocational training
Fisicaro also supports trade schools and
vocational training.
Not everyone can go to a four-year college, she said.
The gap, she said, is wider in the north
county when it comes to children and reading skills.
Guingona, from Daly City, went to
Skyline College before transferring to a
four-year university.
Im a big advocate for transferring, he
County officials, however, do not have
any control over local school districts or
the San Mateo County Office of Education.
Access to health care in the north county
is a bigger issue for Canepa.
With the recent sale of Seton Medical
Center, there is concern services at that
hospital might erode in the coming years,

he said.
But getting to the county-owned medical
center in San Mateo can be burdensome for
residents in the north county, he said.
The county does operate the Mike Nevin
Health Center in north county but appointments are hard to get, Canepa said.
The demand is so high that we have to
increase capacity, Canepa said. Seniors
have an especially hard time traveling to
San Mateo to access health care services, he
He would like to continue Tissiers
Seniors on the Move yearly event.
The district is aging, he said, and seniors
need to be connected to the resources they
need, much of which are centered in
Redwood City or San Mateo.
Fisicaro also wants to continue the
Seniors on the Move events and continue
Tissiers role in the annual San Mateo
County Disaster Preparedness Day.
Fisicaro hopes to provide the same female
presence on the board Tissier has provided
and wants to ease into office slowly when it
comes to policy.
I want to learn the job and get up to
speed. Im not going to go to fast with policy, said Fisicaro, who has served the
Colma City Council for two decades.
Guingona touts his experience on the
Daly City Council as a reason to vote for
You cant get anything done on your
own. Youve got to have a big tent, not
ideas, Guingona said.
Hes been critical of Canepas idea to have
a dedicated district office in the north county to serve constituents.
Tissier had one but it was rarely used, he
said. She just closed it, he said.
Lentz hopes he can join the board to support Supervisor Pine and his initiatives.
We can create a synergy to bring more
services to the north county, he said.
Land-use policy, Lentz said, can create
healthy communities.

Private sector
He also thinks hes the right candidate to
get the private sector more involved in
improving educational opportunities in the
As a supervisor, Lentz hopes executives
such as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg

Monday May 9, 2016


will give him an audience to discuss his

companys role in solving regional issues
such as traffic.
Income inequality is a big issue in the district, Lentz said.
This is a middle class district. The high
cost of housing is squeezing out our teachers, librarians and retail workers, he said.
Canepa said Tissiers role on the board
has been great for the region especially
when it comes to transportation and public
He intends, however, to be a proactive
legislator. With property crimes on the
rise, the county may have to adjust its policies related to incarceration and programs
to reduce recidivism.
The new jail in Redwood City should not
just be a jail but a place to help low-level
criminals transition back into the community, he said.
How do we keep people out of jail?
Incarceration is not the answer, Canepa
said. There must be alternatives.
He also wants to create a livable wage
in the county.
$15 is not enough, Canepa said about
the states move to lift the minimum wage
to $15 by 2022.
None of the candidates support rent control but they all support adding carpool
lanes in the county.
Three do not support toll lanes but Lentz
said, Im not sure.

When it comes to garnering campaign
contributions, Canepa is the leader.
Hes raised nearly $128,000 and still has
about $88,000 to spend on his campaign.
Guingona has raised about $88,000 and
has $61,000 left to spend on the campaign.
Fisicaro has loaned her campaign
$85,000 and has raised another $60,000 in
donations. She has a little less than
$50,000 in cash to spend on her campaign,
according to campaign finance forms filed
with the county.
Lentz too has loaned his campaign about
$22,000 and raised another $38,000 from
donors. He has about $45,000 left to spend
on his campaign.
If none of the candidates earn 50 percent
of the vote June 7, the top two vote getters
will square off in November.

his claim and Sewer Rat, the plumbing
company which was doing underground
work in the neighborhood when the
flooding occurred, has ignored his
requests for relief.
Feeling overwhelmed by the unfortunate circumstances, Chen said he has
been living with his wife and daughters
in a relatives basement while his home
on El Bonito Way has been stripped to
the studs to clean out the bacteria and
filth that seeped through his floors and
walls during the flood.
Its literally been hell for the past
two months, said Chen. I really wish
there was any kind of good news.
Toilets suddenly backed up into the
homes of three properties in the neighborhood in early March, due to the
alleged negligence of a plumbing contractor hired by the city to work on
sewer laterals.
Workers from Sewer Rat allegedly
incorrectly connected to the citys sewer
main and a rainstorm washed rocks and
debris into an open excavation site,
which caused the pipes to clog and overflow into the homes, a city official had

and were really excited.
But with the custom redesign of
the decades-old playground comes a
hefty price tag. The city estimated
the playground renovation would
cost about $1.9 million for base
construction costs. City officials
hoped to raise $300,000 to fund
additional features such as a fence,
installing rubber in the toddler area
and more. Staff has since opted to
not to install a water feature due to
the cost and is working on a more


modest fundraising campaign,
Canzian said.
About a year ago, the city began
selling commemorative bricks and
park benches. Those who donated
will have either their brick featured
in a commemorative walkway or
the installation of park benches
marking their contributions.
The San Mateo Parks Foundation
has assisted in selling bricks and
soliciting donations having raised
more than $30,000 for the new
playground. Canzian noted the

will be used as a deposit to serve as collateral to allow the Peninsula Clean

Energy Authority to secure a bank loan
to fund startup costs.
The PCE is currently looking to contract with a clean energy supplier and
anticipates it will have five full-time
staff members at startup.
Supervisor Dave Pine, who will serve
on the board, initiated the program in
this county based on successful programs in Marin and Sonoma counties.
The JPA will allow its customers to
buy renewable energy at competitive
rates. Customers who purchase 100 percent renewable energy from sources
such as wind or solar will see their
monthly electric bills rise by as little as
$2, according to a technical study.
The idea is to dramatically reduce the
countys carbon footprint by releasing

less greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

The renewable energy will be delivered over Pacific Gas and Electric lines.
In addition to the funding provided by
the county, the Peninsula Clean Energy
Authority, a nonprofit, is seeking $12
million in financing from a bank to
establish a reserve fund in support of the
power purchase agreements entered into
by the PCEA, to provide working capital for the pre-revenue collection phase
as well as to account for seasonal differences in cash flow.

While away from the job site
overnight, Chen said thieves broke into
the property and stole nearly $20,000
worth of his tool and work possessions.
Nearing his wits end with a string of

of their displacement.
Chen said appreciation of the monetary contribution came second to the joy
of affirmation that, after a string of difficulties, some cared enough to assist a
