Sex crime oversight slammed
Jury report says sex predator monitoring failing • Sheriff says funds lacking
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
Children in the county are at greater risk of being the victims of sex crimes because some law enforcement agencies no longer vigorously monitor sexual offenders, according to a report released by the San Mateo County Civil
Grand Jury yesterday. Sexual predators are not investigated to the same degree as they were previously and a coordinated countywide
effort to monitor sexual predators is inadequate, according to the report. In a response letter, San Mateo County Sheriff Greg Munks said his ofﬁce lacks the funding to maintain specialized sex offender units although he said sex crimes investigation remains a core function of the ofﬁce. The civil grand jury recommends
the San Mateo County Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement and Sexual Habitual Offender Program task forces be reinstated at a countywide level and that local police departments develop a plan to improve the sharing of information regarding sexual offender law enforcement. The SHOP unit, according to
Munks, lost funding when the Sheriff’s Ofﬁce withdrew from East Palo Alto and the SAFE task force was an entity of the state Department of Justice, independent of and not funded by the Sheriff’s Ofﬁce. The loss of the units, according to the civil grand jury report, has led to

When looking for your next house, would you consider buying a single-family home from the South San Francisco Unified School District? What about advertising your business on a school vehicle, maybe even a bus? Would you wear a South City School District T-shirt to support local schools? The questions may seem unrelated to normal school business, however, an ever dwindling budget has left school districts to discuss unique ideas. Locally, districts have invested in solar and started afterschool and summer-camp for proﬁt offerings. Tonight, the South San Francisco Uniﬁed School District Board of Trustees will begin discussing a long list of ideas for
bumping up the budget. Ideas range from incentives for employees to retire early to developing single-family homes on land from former Phil Weise school sites which could be sold for proﬁt. Trustee Phil Weise has advocating looking into an idea like developing homes for some time. Creating housing is not an entirely new idea. Affordable housing for employees in the San Mateo County Community College District is currently being built. The San MateoFoster City Elementary School District has been researching a sim-

The Foster City man who prosecutors say shot two men because they were being loud while canoeing in the lagoon appeared in court yesterday to face attempted murder and ﬁrearms charges. Jesse David Wilson, 39, did not enter a plea to the multiple felonies which include two counts of attempted murder and ﬁve counts of
assault with a deadly weapon. He returns to court July 20 to enter a plea and ask for a bail reduction. According to authorities, ﬁve friends — two men and three women — were laughing and making noise

A San Mateo County jury awarded $12.2 million in damages on behalf of a 17-year-old San Mateo girl left in a vegetative state after a driver hit her in a crosswalk on El Camino Real in 2006. After a four-week trial, the jury found the driver 30 percent responsible but gave 50 percent of the fault to Caltrans which controls the roads. The remaining 20 percent fault was apportioned to the victim, Emily Liou. On the evening of March 28, 2006, Liou was walking home from karaoke when a woman driving a slow-moving Toyota sedan
knocked her to the ground, according to her lawyer, Douglas S. Saeltzer who ﬁled suit along with his law partner, Rich Schoenberger of Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger. Liou received a traumatic brain injury that left her in a permanent vegetative state. The crosswalk is marked but located in a crest of the road which is out of view until a driver is approximately 100 feet away and has no lights or stops signs controlling trafﬁc, according to Saeltzer. In the 15 years prior to Liou’s accident, three other pedestrians have been killed in the same crosswalk, according to the law ﬁrm’s research. Caltrans representatives did not return an inquiry for comment.

In 1870, Georgia became the last Confederate state readmitted to the Union. Manitoba entered confederation as the ﬁfth Canadian province. In 1916, Boeing Co., originally known as Paciﬁc Aero Products Co., was founded in Seattle. In 1918, the Second Battle of the Marne, resulting in an Allied victory, began during World War I. In 1948, President Harry S. Truman was nominated for another term of ofﬁce by the Democratic national convention in Philadelphia. In 1960, American opera singer Lawrence Tibbett died in New York at age 63. In 1964, Sen. Barry M. Goldwater of Arizona was nominated for president by the Republican national convention in San Francisco. In 1971, President Richard Nixon startled the country by announcing he would visit the People’s Republic of China. In 1976, a 36-hour kidnap ordeal began for 26 schoolchildren and their bus driver as they were abducted near Chowchilla, Calif., by three gunmen and imprisoned in an underground cell. (The captives escaped unharmed.) In 1979, President Jimmy Carter delivered his “malaise” speech in which he lamented what he called a “crisis of conﬁdence” in America. In 1985, a shockingly gaunt-looking Rock Hudson appeared at a news conference with actress Doris Day (it was later revealed Hudson was suffering from AIDS).

Strange but True
Idaho cops catch up with alleged condiment vandal
BOISE, Idaho — Police have arrested a 74-year-old woman who is accused of repeatedly dumping maple syrup, corn syrup, ketchup and mayonnaise into a library book drop in Idaho’s capital city. Authorities had previously issued a pair of warrants for Joy Cassidy’s arrest earlier this month after she failed to appear in court. But she turned herself in at the Ada County jail on Monday. Cassidy was originally arrested on June 13. That’s after police say she poured mayonnaise in the library’s book drop box that day — and was a person of interest in at least 10 other condimentrelated incidents at the Ada Community Library in Boise since May 2009. In addition to malicious injury to property, Cassidy has also been charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a license. The State Highway Patrol says the truck was hauling carcasses for a meat processing plant late Monday afternoon. The patrol says the truck ﬂipped over while going into a curve on a local road in northeast Ohio’s Medina County. The frightened monkey scampered up the pole after the accident. Troopers say the truck driver was OK. The monkey had to be coaxed down from its perch. The meat plant sent another truck to pick up the carcasses. State and county highway crews were sent to help clean up the mess. No charges have been ﬁled. The crash is still being investigated. of Interstate 5. The trooper says the truck didn’t hit any vehicles. Leary says the 42-year-old driver suffered minor injuries and will be cited for driving with wheels off the roadway.

Diver finds lost Tiffany engagement ring in lake
MINNEAPOLIS — A Minneapolis teacher was devastated when her brand new Tiffany engagement ring fell into a lake — until a treasure hunter came to her rescue. Adam Segar and Sara Stocco got engaged last month. KSTP-TV reports they were out boating on Lake Minnetonka when she took off the $7,000 ring to keep it clean while she applied sunscreen on Segar. Stocco put the ring in her mouth but it fell, hit the ﬂoor of the boat and bounced into the water. Denny Geffre of nearby Long Lake, Minn. says he has been hunting treasures in lakes for 40 years. After hearing of Stocco’s loss, he donned his scuba gear and spent three days searching the lake with a metal detector. He found the ring buried in three inches of sand and was given a $750 reward for his efforts.

Tiki carver finds natural locale for his work
By William Jeske
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT
Bad hair day
A man shaved all of a woman’s hair off her head when she fell asleep on the 1500 block of Howard Avenue in Burlingame before 12:36 p.m. Sunday, July 11.
Tualau Tauheluhelu would be hard-pressed to tell you when, in his more than 40 years of wood sculpting, that a mallet and chisel felt like foreign objects to his well-toned, chapped and calloused hands. The extensive wood carving collection of this soft-spoken 56-year-old from the South Paciﬁc island of Tonga tells of a lifetime focusing on perfecting his craft. “I’ll carve anything, you name it,” chuckles Tauheluhelu between tapping his mallet and ferule on his current project. He’s making a series of Tiki idols to adorn the walls and banisters for a soon-to-open bar and grill on B Street in downtown San Mateo. Examples of his work, which he makes from his workshop and sells at street corners or art fairs, include traditional big-headed, smallbodied Tiki idols, as well as ornamental sharktoothed clubs and animals. Tauheluhelu markets himself as a custom Tiki carver. For a negotiated price, he’ll carve a Tiki version of his customers. “I’ll give you a man’s or lady’s body,” he said, “but I’ll give you a big face.” “This one time, I even carved a man wearing a tuxedo,” Tauheluhelu recalled with a wry smile. Tauheluhelu taught himself to carve when he was a bored schoolboy in Tonga. He’d carve small dolls between classes and his skill with tools ultimately led to a number of carpentry jobs. “I began selling the dolls in 1977 but my trade was as a builder,” he said. He left Tonga for the United States when he was 18 years old and worked a series of odd jobs and carpentry projects to get by. Ultimately, he settled in San Mateo, and soon decided to make carving his full-time profession, with the occasional carpentry project. That was nearly 30 years ago. In taking his carving from hobby to profession, he’s learned that carving begins well before he reaches for his tools. When he stud-

ies an untouched piece of wood, it’s its dimensions that dictate what carving it should reveal. “I’ll look at a log and think, ‘this is a whale,’ or ‘this is a dolphin,’” he said. “All my carvings look like what the wood looks like.” He does insist, though, on using hardwoods. “I prefer exotic woods, like rosewood,” he said. Rosewood typically is a strong, heavy brown wood that takes well to stains and polishes. Tauheluhelu also tries to avoid using power tools on his carvings, he said, instead relying on his collection of mallets, chisels, ferules and gouges. Though he has, on occasion, used a chain saw to cut large pieces, and sometimes a power sander. A myriad of Tauheluhelu’s carvings, mostly Tikis, stare or greet passersby from the window at what will be the Downtown Tiki Lounge Bar & Grill at 144 B St. Dennis Romero, a lifelong resident of San Mateo, decided to open a Tiki-themed bar with his friend soon after Romero’s courier job with DHL Express disappeared. The company ceased operations in the United States in November 2008 because of the economic downturn. Romero hopes to open the lounge by the end of this month pending the approval of a liquor license. “I’d always wanted to open a bar,” Romero said, “and one day my friend says we should open a Tiki bar.” The two pooled their resources and began refurbishing the B Street location to resemble a traditional tropical lounge, with bamboo shoots, palm tree canopies and a red-lit bar counter that resembles a lava ﬂow. And, of course, plenty of Tauheluhelu’s Tikis. “I’d seen this guy selling his Tikis on Shoreview (Avenue),” Romero said, “and it just made sense to hire him.”

OAKLAND — Two Oakland council members are among those being investigated for their decision to join a human line that blocked police from people protesting the verdict in the Johannes Mehserle case.

The demonstrations took place following the involuntary manslaughter verdict in the racially charged trial of a white former Bay

• U.S. Rep. Anna G. Eshoo, D-Palo Alto, voted Wednesday for S. B. 1508, the Improper P a y m e n t s Elimination and Recovery Act, which is
designed to identify, reduce and prevent improper payments from federal agencies. Improper payments occur when a federal agency pays too much, pays twice or pays for the wrong product or service. This happens as a result of fraud or from poor financial management systems that do not detect or prevent mistakes before federal dollars are misspent, according to her office.
Authorities along the Peninsula are trying to identify a man who has been using emergency radio channels to berate law enforcement ofﬁcials and call in false reports at local bars, a Burlingame police captain said Wednesday. Burlingame police ﬁrst heard the man on the evening of June 22, according to Capt. Mike Matteucci. He has also been heard on the radios of Belmont and San Mateo police and by the San Mateo County Sheriff's Ofﬁce. "He has been on our radio frequency every couple days," Matteucci said. "Sometimes it's a quick couple sentences, and sometimes it will go on intermittently over an hour or two." The man has blurted out profanities about police, reported false bar ﬁghts at various bars around town and made sarcastic comments about ofﬁcers in the middle of making trafﬁc stops around town, he said. Besides annoying police, the man's actions could be endangering ofﬁcers and the general public, according to Norris. "It's a safety issue, not just for our ofﬁcers but for the public if there's emergency info that
might need to get out that could be blocked," he said. The most recent incidents in Burlingame occurred last weekend. Matteucci said investigators are unsure how the man is accessing the emergency radio frequencies, and they don't know whether he is in a home in the area or driving around in a car. Investigators with the various law enforcement agencies are working together to try to ﬁnd the man. The Federal Communications Commission has also joined the investigation, he said. If the man is arrested, he faces federal charges of unauthorized trafﬁc on emergency frequencies, according to Matteucci. Investigators are asking for the public's help in identifying the man. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Burlingame police at 777-4100. Residents of San Mateo can also call the city’s Police Department at 522-7700, the investigations unit at 522-7650 or the secret witness tip line at 22-7676.

Report claiming oversight committees need training
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT
Citizens charged with overseeing voterapproved bond funds for local school districts have little power to ensure money is spent properly and often are not well-informed about the ﬁnancial documents which they are given, according to a San Mateo County Civil Grand Jury report released yesterday. Proposition 39, passed in 2000, allows school districts the ability to pass bond measures at 55 percent while requiring a citizens’ oversight committee is created to audit purchases. Citizens in the committee are speciﬁed to represent certain people within the community, to guarantee various points of view. Over the past ﬁve years, two school districts have had serious ﬁnancial problems regarding bond measures. As a result, the civil grand jury researched if the citizens’ oversight committee is really able to ensure ﬁnances efﬁciently.
Nine school districts within the county have bond measures. All also have citizens’ oversight committees, according to the six-page report. Some members interviewed shared that their function was irrelevant since purchases and decisions were already made. Others noted having little real understanding of projects and ﬁnancial projects which they were looking over. While the timing of the review cannot be changed, the grand jury suggested County Ofﬁce of Education and local districts create independent training opportunities for people chosen to serve on oversight committees. In addition, it is recommended that those with ﬁnancial experience be chosen whenever possible. Also, districts should keep up-to-date information on projects available to the public in an easy-to-understand format. To read the full report visit http://www.sanmateocourt.org/grandjury/.

Obama promising to help House Democrats
By Erica Werner and Philip Elliott
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Facing criticism from House Democrats, President Barack Obama promised their leaders Wednesday night that he’ll actively support their agenda and Democratic lawmakers as they head into tough midterm elections this fall, according to a congressional leadership aide. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer were among those in the Oval Ofﬁce meeting. The aide, who was briefed on the meeting, spoke on condition of anonymity because the conversation was private. The meeting came as congressional Democrats, fearing disaster in the fall elections, have expressed frustration with the Obama team and its efforts to help Democrats. They also were angered when White House press
secretary Robert Gibbs said over the weekend that enough seats were in play for Democrats to lose the House. Obama was told of the concerns of rank-andﬁle lawmakers, some of whom think the president hasn’t been doing enough to use his bully pulpit on their behalf, considering that they are all up for re-election in November, the aide said. Obama won’t face voters again until 2012. Obama said that he understood the criticism and promised full engagement and support on substance and message through the fall, the aide said. With high unemployment dragging down incumbents, a key focus will be on jobs and how individual congressional districts are helped by Democrats’ policies. Pelosi told reporters it had been a “very productive meeting” and said that Gibbs’ comment about Democrats possibly losing the House never came up.

Chief Justice Ron George stepping down
SAN FRANCISCO — California Chief Justice Ron George announced his retirement Wednesday, stunning colleagues and court watchers who saw him issue the opinion that brieﬂy legalized gay marriage and passionately work to consolidate the state’s once Byzantine court system. George said he timed his decision in part so Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger could name his successor. The two have worked together on budgetary matters and are seen as political allies. Both leave ofﬁce on Jan. 2, meaning the governor has until Sept. 16 to name a successor. George said he respected the track record of Schwarzenegger in appointing people to the bench and had been asked for advice on selecting a new chief justice. George said his 70th birthday this year led him to contemplate retiring from the post to which he was appointed by Gov. Pete Wilson in 1996. “Reﬂection convinced me now is the right time while I am at the top of my game to leave while the proverbial music still plays, and return to private life,” George said. George ﬁrst joined the high court in 1991

after serving four years as an appellate judge. He began his judicial career in 1972 when Gov. Ronald Reagan appointed him to the Los Angeles Municipal Court. The chief justice grabbed notoriety with his written opinion in 2008 after the court legalized gay marriage in California. Voters overturned that decision a year later. He is also lauded for his administrative accomplishments, including bringing all 58 county court systems under state control, which insured equitable funding for all courthouses in the country’s largest court system. “His commitment to the judicial branch and his vision of state trial court funding made sure that access to justice in California was real, not just a slogan,” state Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg said.
Iraq faces new test in U.S.handover of last prison
BAGHDAD — The U.S. military has handed over Tariq Aziz and dozens of other members of Saddam Hussein’s inner circle to Iraqi authorities who will assume control Thursday of the last American-run detention facility in the country. Although the Americans will continue to hold 200 problematic detainees, the changing of the guard at Camp Cropper will mean the end of a mammoth U.S. prison system that has processed more than 100,000 Iraqis in the seven years since the fall of Baghdad. It will also close a chapter on one of the most bitter legacies of the war, the shocking images in 2004 of prisoners being abused by American soldiers at Abu Ghraib. For Iraq, the transfer of detainees marks a milestone on the road to full sovereignty. But it also puts to the test a democratically elected government that many believe has learned few positive lessons from the abuses of Saddam’s regime.

Libyan ship with aid for Gaza reaches Egypt port
EL-ARISH, Egypt — A Libyan aid ship blocked by Israeli missile ships from steaming to Gaza reached an Egyptian port Wednesday, bringing an end to the latest challenge to Israel’s naval embargo of the Palestinian territory. The director of the Egyptian port of el-Arish, Gamal Abdel Maqsoud, said the Libyan boat radioed Wednesday evening asking permission to dock there. He said the ship, the Moldovanﬂagged Amalthea, was 15 miles (24 kilometers) off the Egyptian coast. The ship reached the waiting area Wednesday evening, but has yet to dock because the captain is seeking clearance from the shipment’s organizers, Abdel Maqsoud said.

Experimental diet pill Some preventive care is free has promise,little risk
By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ATLANTA — An experimental diet pill helped about half the people who tried it lose some weight and keep it off a year later, without the heart problems that some earlier drugs caused, a study found. Arena Pharmaceuticals’ lorcaserin is one of three drugs that are boosting hope for a new generation of more effective weight-loss medicines. One gets a Food and Drug Administration review on Thursday and the others, later this year. In the study, lorcaserin (loreKASS-ah-rin) caused more people to lose at least 5 percent of their body weight over one year, more than twice the rate achieved by those on dummy pills. Most people don’t stick to diets. And diet pills have had bad side effects or can’t be taken long-term. A low point came in 1997 when the popular “fen-phen” was pulled from the market after it was tied to heart valve problems. But now comes lorcaserin, a round blue tablet that would be the ﬁrst truly novel weight-loss pill in a dozen years if it wins approval. The drug targets the same appetite pathway fen-phen did but in a more selective, and perhaps safer, manner. Results of a large company-funded study of it are in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine. The study involved more that 3,100 obese or overweight people given either the drug or dummy pills.
FDA: Diabetes drug should stay on market
By Matthew Perrone
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — GlaxoSmithKline’s drug Avandia should stay on the market, federal health experts voted Wednesday, but the controversial diabetes pill should be subject to new restrictions due to risky heart side effects. A panel of Food and Drug Administration advisers voted 2012 to keep the once blockbuster pill available for diabetics. But 10 panelists also called for limiting who can receive and prescribe the much-debated medication. The vote marks a tough win for British drugmaker Glaxo, which is facing thousands of lawsuits from patients who say Avandia caused their heart attacks or strokes. While the company may fare better in court due to the panel ruling, sales of Avandia are likely to shrink to minuscule levels. The FDA is not required to follow the advice of its panelists, though it usually does. FDA ofﬁcials said they would review the recommendations and make a decision on Avandia as soon as possible.
WASHINGTON — From counseling for kids who struggle with their weight, to cancer screenings for their parents, preventive health care will soon be available at no out-of-pocket cost under consumer rules the Obama administration unveiled Wednesday. That means no copays, deductibles or coinsurance for people whose health insurance plans are covered by the new requirements. The Obama administration estimates that 41 million Americans will beneﬁt initially, with the number projected to rise to 88 million by 2013. Many large company plans, which usually offer solid preventive beneﬁts, will be exempt from the requirements for the time being. Better preventive coverage is one of the goals of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law, part of a shift to try to catch problems early, before high cholesterol can lead to heart disease. “Services like these will go a long way in preventing chronic illnesses that consume over 75 percent of the health care spending in this country,” said ﬁrst lady Michelle Obama, announcing the new beneﬁts at a Washington hospital. Better preventive care may be an investment, but it still carries an upfront cost. Premiums will go up by 1.5 percent on average, as spending for the services is spread broadly across an entire pool of insured people. For individuals who are diligent about their checkups, that can mean considerable out-of-pocket savings. For example, a 58-year-old woman at risk of heart disease could save at least $300 out of her own budget on

Covered preventable services
• Screenings strongly recommended with a grade of “A”or “B”by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force,an independent advisory panel.Among them are breast and colon cancer tests, screening of pregnant women for vitamin deﬁciencies,tests for diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure,as well as counseling to help smokers quit. • Routine vaccines from childhood immunizations to tetanus boosters for adults. • Well-baby visits to a pediatrician,vision and hearing tests for kids,and counseling to help youngsters maintain a healthy weight.These and other services are recommended under guidelines developed by the government and the American Academy of Pediatrics. • Women’s health screenings,also to include test called for under guidelines that are still in development and not expected to be be announced until Aug., 2011.
recommended tests, ranging from diabetes and cholesterol screening, to a mammogram and a ﬂu shot. Research has shown that people tend to skip recommended preventive care if cost is an issue, and even a modest copayment can make a difference. Cost-free prevention was one idea that received widespread support during the contentious health care
debate last year in Congress. The prevention requirements take effect for health plans renewing on or after Sept. 23, which means most beneﬁciaries will see them starting Jan. 1. Coincidentally, that’s also when Medicare recipients get access to most preventive services at no outof-pocket cost — another change under the health care law.

Speaking up and striking out
o steal some words from Alice Roosevelt Longworth, if you don’t have anything nice to say, come sit by me. And if you happen to be a general with loose lips and a major bone to pick, all the better. Love the war, hate the war, but who didn’t secretly enjoy the small firestorm caused by U.S. General Stanley McChrystal’s noholds barred interview with Rolling Stone magazine? How steely must one be to knowingly tell — and allow your aides to chime in too — the Fourth Estate about the vice president, the president, their policies, his fellow military personnel and a whole lot of colorful commentary in between? McChrystal might think there are wimps in the White House but he certainly gave the impression that he doesn’t view himself in the same weak-willed light. Maybe the candidness was disrespectful. Maybe it was refreshing. In any case, it was entertaining. Suddenly, there was something worth paying attention to in between the sound bites of troop surges and withdrawal dates. We can’t all grasp the magnitude of death tolls and battle strategies but we all have a pretty good han-

dle on sticking one’s foot in their mouth. Petraeus may be more respectful but that doesn’t mean he would be more fun at social events. General McChrystal can come sit at my vicious circle any day. Next to him I’d place Carly Fiorina who earned special honors with her quip over U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer’s hair. Fiorina’s gaffe is a toss-up when it comes to judging her future candidness. On one hand, we now know she has a cruel streak — always a plus when assembling the cocktail crowd — but she was also caught off guard. Who knows if she’ll jump into a verbal smackdown without the protection of privacy? Speaking of smackdowns, that is exactly why gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman isn’t on the invite list — she’d likely start shoving others after finding herself unprepared. If Fiorina fails as a sister-in-sarcasm, though, there is always BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg.
Not only will he have rousing small talk about all the oil-capping solutions that didn’t make it off the drawing board, you just know it’s only a matter of time before he starts professing sympathy for “the small people.” His condescension will likely draw a pointed reaction from McChrystal — let the fun begin! And Carly? Let’s just hope Svanberg takes time for a modern trim and style before braving this crowd of critics. One person who may not make the cut is actor-turned-raving idiot Mel Gibson. Bluntness and inadvertent insults are one thing; racist, misogynist rants that make Michael Richards and Alec Baldwin look like open-minded, rational sweet-tongued angels is quite another. Besides, not only does Gibson on those released audio tapes sound more than a few tacos short of a fiesta platter, he appears to be incredibly filled with rage at his Octomom-esque baby mama. If he were to act on that bubbling
stream of vitriol, I don’t know that even Whitman could knock him back into shape. The cold comfort in Gibson attending a small gathering of snarky friends is the security of knowing his rants are (mostly) no longer accountable to the FCC. Too bad for him, the public isn’t as forgiving, or as mum. And for those fine opinionated folks, I have a cozy chair next to mine.

A different path for city services
By Jim Hartnett
It is time for all cities to move toward a different way of providing public safety services. For the southern part of San Mateo County, closing down police departments and contracting with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office for police services could be a natural fit. Closing fire stations that are close to their neighbors who could provide good service on a contract basis would provide substantial cost savings as well. To start with, Redwood City should consider contracting for police services with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and working with the Woodside Fire Protection District to close one fire station and share another. Fiscal crisis or not, cities have to look at different ways of providing services. There is nothing like a financial disaster that is unprecedented in the lives of most Americans to motivate a careful look at how government spends and receives money. Virtually every city revenue source is down, and may not come back up for years or ever, while contracted for expenses continue to rise. Even if cities are able to further control costs, primarily employee wages and benefits, and contributions to pensions, there still will likely be structural imbalances. Change is needed. Since public safety generally takes up more than 50 percent of a city general fund budget and sometimes more than 60 percent, shouldn’t we be looking toward more efficient, cost-effective ways of providing those services? Police and fire personnel should
always be paid well and have good pensions, but in a relatively small county that has 20 towns and cities, there should not be any question as to whether efficiencies can be found. The contract model is well tested. The Sheriff’s Office, which already patrols all unincorporated areas of the county, provides contract police services to Woodside and Portola Valley, is the “transit police” for SamTrans and Caltrain, and is in serious negotiations with San Carlos. The San Carlos commissioned consultant study on police services reported that nearly half of the cities in Los Angeles County contract with their sheriff’s office (including such cities as diverse as Malibu and Lynwood) and that most newly formed cities throughout the state are contract cities. Cupertino, Saratoga and Los Altos Hills contract with the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office. The San Carlos study also concluded that mergers of police departments and formation of joint power authorities for police services have proven to be problematic. Based on my experience spanning more than two decades as a mayor, councilman and chair of six county and regional boards that have included elected city councilmembers and members of the board of supervisors of the counties of San Mateo, Santa Clara, San Francisco and Alameda, I know how difficult it is for cities to give up their per-
ceived turf and work together. The success of joint power agencies is highly dependent upon elected city councilmembers from neighboring cities having long-term mutual trust and respect. That clearly proves difficult. There are additional challenges for combining fire/paramedic first responder services but there are great examples in San Mateo County of departments working together, or merging. The union representing firefighters throughout the county has long been interested in looking at having one county fire department but that is unlikely to ever occur. Fire/paramedic first responder service is extraordinarily successful but expensive and not always efficient. The failed San Carlos Belmont Joint Powers Agency for fire services provides a model that I think few would want to emulate. But even contracts for limited services with adjoining cities can make a real difference. The Redwood City fire chief reported during budget deliberations that there is a Redwood City fire station and a Woodside Fire Protection District fire station about one mile apart from each other which together average about two calls a day. Redwood City and the Woodside Fire Protection District should consider contracting in which either one of the two stations closes, or they open on a rotating basis, with services and cost savings shared. Change is tough. The San Carlos Police Officers Association opposed contracting with the Sheriff’s Office, but their attempt to thwart the plan by placing an initiative on the ballot fizzled and, according to media reports, the

Police Officer Association is fractured. Redwood City firefighters are vigorously opposing necessary Redwood City fire service reform borne from the fiscal crisis and perhaps would oppose contracting with Woodside. They, as the San Carlos police officers, can be partners or obstacles of reform, but they will find the more they oppose change the more they will lose public support. I believe the men and women of the Redwood City police and fire departments are truly extraordinary and provide the best possible service in the entire county. As proud and as thankful as I am for them, times have changed — and not just for them. Maybe it is time for the sheriff to provide contract police services for San Carlos, Redwood City, Belmont, Atherton, Menlo Park and Half Moon Bay and for every city to work better together to provide high-quality fire/paramedic first responder services with fewer stations.

Feds versus Arizona
— The Denver Post
he federal government sued the state of Arizona over its controversial immigration law, arguing that enforcing immigration laws is a federal responsibility. And the laughter from Arizona is still echoing across the land. Of course it’s the federal government’s responsibility to enforce immigration laws. The argument, which we acknowledge may prevail in court, is a laugher in the court of public opinion because it’s undercut by the historic failure of federal lawmakers and successive administrations to enforce immigration laws. Recently, President Barack Obama gave a speech in which he said it was essential to move forward with comprehensive immigration reform, yet he only rehashed old ideas without offering a solid plan or timeline. As we’ve said before, if you’re going to
ﬁght to defend your authority, you had better be willing to use it. A lack of faith in the federal government was the foundation for the Arizona law, and other states will follow suit. Politicians in Oklahoma, South Carolina and Utah are pushing for tougher immigration laws when their legislatures return early next year, according to a Washington Post report. We also found it surprising that the federal government would assert in its lawsuit that the Arizona law would harm people’s civil rights and lead to police harassment of U.S. citizens and foreigners. Given the last-minute changes made to the law, the Obama administration’s claim looks like mere pandering to Latino voters. While we were initially critical of the law, and would prefer to see comprehensive reform passed on a nation level, Arizona legislators watered it down in the ﬁnal moments of the legislation process. With the changes, we don’t see it as the civil rights threat that it once was. in turn contacted police.

The Fed lowered its projection for the gross domestic product, the broadest measure of the economy, and said GDP will grow between 3 percent and 3.5 percent this year. That’s down from the 3.2 percent to 3.7 percent forecast in April. The central bank also said the unemployment rate, now at 9.5 percent, will at best fall to 9.2 percent. In its April forecast, the Fed had a slightly lower bottom number of 9.1 percent. The Fed also released minutes from its June 22-23 meeting, at which it found that “economic developments abroad” could hurt the U.S. economy. That’s a reference to the debt crisis that began in Greece and threatened to spread to other European countries. While the Fed’s statement contained no real surprises, investors are particularly cautious after the advances of the past week and because so much of corporate earnings reports are still ahead, said Rob Lutts, president and chief investment officer of Cabot Money Management in Salem, Mass.
NEW YORK — A weaker economic forecast from the Federal Reserve chilled the stock market’s winning streak. Stocks closed mixed Wednesday, with the Dow Jones industrial average rising almost 4 points for its seventh straight advance. The other major market indexes also had single-digit moves. Bond prices rose as investors, again uneasy about the strength of the economic recovery, went in search of safe investments. The Fed’s economic forecast was only slightly more downbeat than the outlook issued in April. And investors have been well aware that the country faces a bumpy recovery. But the Fed’s assessment was still a sharp reminder that economic growth won’t come easily. Investors initially sold on the Fed’s statement. A strong start to second-quarter earnings reports, including upbeat forecasts from Intel Corp. and Alcoa Inc., helped temper their disappointment.
“It’s been a very strong last three or four days. And at this point, valuations are a little higher and a little more of a challenge,” he said. And after the beating stocks took this spring, he said, investors remain more cautious than in any down investment cycle in memory. That caution is reﬂected in how they are continuing to move money into bonds. “We need time to heal, more than anything else,” Lutts said. Analysts said investors were initially unnerved by the Fed’s long-term outlook. “The Fed is talking about 5 to 7 years time before the economy gets back to the old modus operani,” said Joseph V. Battipaglia, market strategiest for the Private Client Group at Stifel Nicolaus & Co. “This is the government admitting that the coast is not clear because the outlook is a slower environment and unemployment stays doggedly high.” The Dow rose 3.70, or 0.04 percent, to 10,366.72. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 0.17, or 0.02 percent, to 1,095.17, while the Nasdaq composite index rose 7.81, or 0.4 percent, to 2,249.84.
Fed paints weaker picture
By Martin Crutsinger
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Federal Reserve ofﬁcials have a slightly dimmer view of the economy than they did in April, reflecting worries about how the European debt crisis could affect U.S. growth and job prospects. Fed ofﬁcials said Wednesday in an updated economic forecast that they think the economy, as measured by the gross domestic product, will grow between 3 percent and 3.5 percent this year. That’s a downward revision from a growth range in their April forecast of 3.2 percent to 3.7 percent. The Fed’s latest forecast sees the unemployment rate, now at 9.5 percent, possibly staying at that ﬁgure or in the best case falling to 9.2 percent. In the April forecast, the Fed had a slightly lower bottom number of 9.1 percent. The Fed said in the minutes of its June 22-23 meeting that its lower economic projections reflected “economic developments abroad” — a reference to the debt crisis that began in Greece and threatened to spread to other
Fed eyes steps to bolster recovery

WASHINGTON — Federal Reserve ofﬁcials cut their forecasts for growth this year and signaled they stood ready to take new steps to keep the recovery alive if the economy worsens. A new document, released Wednesday, revealed a more cautious mood among the Fed policymakers in light of Europe’s debt crisis, a volatile Wall Street, a stalled housing market and high unemployment. With risks growing, Fed ofﬁcials at their June 22-23 meeting saw the need European countries. While reducing the forecast for growth and employment, the Fed also saw less of a threat from inﬂation. The Fed predicted that a key inﬂation gauge that’s tied to consumer spending would show prices rising 1 percent to 1.1 percent this year. That’s down from an
to explore new options for bolstering the economy. That’s a turnaround from earlier this year when they were moving to wind down crisis-era supports. No new speciﬁc steps were disclosed or agreed upon at that time. However, if the recovery were to deteriorate, Fed policymakers have options. They could revive programs to buy mortgage securities or government debt. They could lower the rates banks pay for emergency Fed loans. The Fed also could create a new program to spark more lending to businesses and consumers in a bid to lure them to ratchet up spending and grow the economy. April forecast that consumer prices would increase by 1.2 percent to 1.5 percent. The absence of inﬂationary pressures gives the Fed leeway to keep interest rates low to try to bolster growth as the economy recovers from the deepest recession since the 1930s.

Tech spending up but caution looms
STRONG SPENDING: Companies are ﬁnally spending more on the computers after slashing budgets during the recession. But fears of more economic uncertainty hang over the technology industry. BELLWETHER BLOWOUT: Intel Corp. on Tuesday reported the strongest quarter in its 42-year history, a sign to the industry that better times are on the way. CAUTION LOOMS: Analysts warn that Americans are still expected to be cautious with their spending for the rest of the year. So companies may just be upgrading their technology to boost productivity. Economic shakiness in Europe could hurt demand,too.
SAN FRANCISCO — Companies finally appear to be muscling up their spending on the most expensive kinds of computers after slashing budgets during the recession, but fears of more economic uncertainty are proving tough for the technology industry to shake. Intel Corp., which makes the brains for 80 percent of the world’s personal computers, turned in blowout quarterly financial numbers on Tuesday, a sign to the rest of the industry that better times are on the way. But analysts caution that Americans are still expected to be cautious with
their spending for the rest of the year. So companies may just be upgrading their technology to boost productivity, not necessarily expecting a sudden, huge increase in demand. Economic shakiness in Europe could hurt demand, too.

Hoops stars named Prep Athletes of the Year
By Beth Harris
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LOS ANGELES — Guard Brandon Knight, headed to Kentucky in the fall, and power forward Chiney Ogwumike, who will join her sister at Stanford, were honored as national high school athletes of the year Wednesday. It was the fourth time in eight years that the male and female awards went to a pair of basketball players. The previous hoops duo to
win were Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Maya Moore of Connecticut in 2007. Knight averaged 31.9 points, 8.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 2.5 steals while shooting 82 percent from the free throw line last season for Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He led the Panthers to the state Class 3A state title game as a senior and had a 4.0 GPA. He thanked his parents for “always being there for me.” Knight was a ﬁnalist last year. He received his award from Love
and New England Patriots receiver Wes Welker. “I looked him up the past couple days on YouTube and I was like, ‘Oh damn, this kid Brandon can play,”’ Love Knight said. “You see all the similar tools that Derrick Rose had at Memphis and obviously last year with John Wall. He has a
legitimate shot. He’s well-spoken, he’s humble and he cares about more than basketball.” Knight joins a rebuilding Kentucky team that had five Chiney players taken in Ogwumike the opening round of last month’s NBA draft. He’ll be stepping into the void created by the departure of point guard
Wall after one season. “Right now, my main goal is to focus on the now and get better,” he said. “If you get better and you win and you do good as a team, the individual things will come such as being a No. 1 draft pick and being drafted in the lottery.” Knight and Ogwumike were set to attend the ESPY Awards on Wednesday night. “I’m really fascinated with Kobe (Bryant),” he said. “I would like to

Giants’ key: Consistency
s the second half of the Major League Baseball season begins today, the buzz around the San Francisco Giants is whether the team will make a move at the trade deadline. Rumors are swirling the team is in the running for the Prince Fielder sweepstakes, the out-sized slugger from Milwaukee, as well as Brewers outﬁelder Corey Hart. Do the Giants have a package sweet enough to entice the Brewers to move either of those guys? Is there someone else out there that would better ﬁt with the Giants? Are they willing to give up some of their pitching if it means getting a legitimate bat? Or does San Francisco have enough already in place? My choice is No. 4. I believe the Giants have what it takes to make a playoff push. The key to a post-season berth, however, is consistency. If the Giants can get their pitching to dominate like it can, and get the bats hot, they deﬁnitely have enough to make a run. The Giants showed in the latter half of their season-long road trip that the bats are coming to life. Aubrey Huff, Buster Posey and, believe it or not, Travis Ishikawa, drove the Giants train by hitting the ball out of the park. Unfortunately, so far this year, having both pitching and hitting on top of their game at the same time is a rare occurrence. Thus, you have them winning 8 of 9 at point, and then losing 7 or 8 in a row. Unless they ﬁnd more consistency from both aspects of the game, their chances are slim. Despite a recent downturn, the pitching should be ﬁne. Much like the previous few

later to try to keep its season alive once again. San Bruno did just that, pulling away for a 7-2 win over San Mateo on Wednesday in an elimination game of the Peninsula Colt League Section tournament. San Bruno plays the loser of last night’s game between Foster City and South San Francisco today at 6 p.m. for the right to go to the championship round on Friday.
Talk about a short turnaround. The San Bruno All-Stars didn’t ﬁnish their Tuesday loser’s bracket elimination game until 11 p.m. But there was no rest for the weary, as San Bruno had to be back on the ﬁeld at Washington Park less than 24 hours
San Bruno manager Dave Stagnaro said his players showed plenty of resiliency after coming back to win on short rest after pulling out a wild 17-8 win over Burlingame Tuesday night. San Bruno trailed 5-0 before scoring ﬁve runs in the ﬁfth, eight in the sixth and four more in the seventh to win going away.

Union disputes NBA’s figures,prepares for lockout
By Brian Mahoney
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Insisting that the NBA’s ﬁnancial projections “strain credulity,” players’ association executive director Billy Hunter said Wednesday he’s seen nothing to change his belief that a lockout is possible. Hunter disputes commissioner David Stern’s forecast of nearly $400 million in losses this season, countering that the league’s basketball-related revenues increased to
their highest point ever in 2009-10. “Our position is that David is mistaken,” Hunter told the Associated Press, adding he believes things are “much, much better than they maintain.” The league’s collective bargaining agreement expires next summer. The sides have started negotiations toward a new one but remain far apart, creating fears of the ﬁrst work stoppage since 1998-99. “I’m preparing for a lockout right now and I haven’t seen anything to change that notion. Hopefully I’ll
see something over the next several months,” Hunter said. “As of this moment, it’s full speed ahead for me in preparing the players for a Billy Hunter worst-case scenario.” Stern predicted the $400 million loss during the All-Star weekend in February, amending it to about $370 during a press conference Monday
in Las Vegas following a meeting of the league’s board of governors. The union was alerted to that projection last summer, but David Stern Hunter contends revenues turned out to be much higher than anticipated — though deputy commissioner Adam Silver said costs were up, too.
Hunter was already wary of the league’s projections after it warned its teams last July that next season’s salary cap could fall as low as $50.4 million. It was set last week at $58.0 million, even higher than this season’s. “Clearly it causes us some concern, causes us to question their numbers,” Hunter said. Hunter said the players will offer their interpretations of the league’s finances at the next bargaining

Giants ready to make playoff push
By Janie McCauley
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN FRANCISCO — Aubrey Huff is ready for the San Francisco Giants to start hitting consistently. If not, he realizes they could play themselves right out of the playoff race. San Francisco sure showed signs of getting back on track during its recent 7-3 road trip to ﬁnish up a 4741 ﬁrst half. The Giants sit four games back of the NL West-leading San Diego Padres at the midpoint. They scored 36 runs in sweeping a four-game series at Milwaukee last week, then took two of three from Washington. Right away they’ll get four games with the New York Mets, beginning Thursday night at AT&T Park. “It’s that time of the year we need
to hit,” Huff said. “The pieces are here. If we can ﬁgure out where they all ﬁt we’ll start to roll. We’re starting to ﬁnd the slots now and where everybody ﬁts.” San Francisco needs to play better in the season’s second half to keep up with San Diego and surging Colorado to stay in contention for the club’s first postseason berth since 2003. The Giants were in the NL wild card race until midSeptember last year and everybody involved has high hopes for ﬁnally getting over the hump in 2010. It would be a major disappointment for this club not to do so. Manager Bruce Bochy and GM Brian Sabean had to exercise some patience early, waiting for key players like second baseman Freddy Sanchez, shortstop Edgar Renteria and center ﬁelder Aaron Rowand to
“ The pieces are here.If we can ﬁgure out where they all ﬁt we’ll start to roll.”
recover from injuries that required disabled list stints — and in Renteria’s case, two trips to the DL. “Getting Freddy and Edgar back, they’re good players,” Bochy said. “It’s nice to have them back to add to the offense and give the offense a sense of conﬁdence, too.” Then there were the additions of 23-year-old catcher Buster Posey, the highly touted rookie called up in late May, and veteran Pat Burrell.
Posey, the Giants’ No. 5 pick in the 2008 draft, is batting .350 with seven homer and 25 RBIs in his 38 games so far. “I’m pretty pleased now,” Sabean said. “We have some semblance of a lineup. We have experience in the lineup and depth coming off the bench. You have to let it sort itself out and exercise some patience. We all did. Boch was good about knowing that.” Free-swinging slugger Pablo Sandoval, among the last players left off the 2009 All-Star team, has struggled to a disappointing .263 batting average with only six homers and 34 RBIs. Not the kind of start the Kung Fu Panda was counting on last winter during his well-publicized offseason shapeup. The Giants need more from their big guy in the second half.
“It’s surprising,” Dodgers manager Joe Torre said. “We know he doesn’t necessarily have a strike zone but that doesn’t keep him from being a menacing guy up there. It’s early.” Perhaps it is, but players know that when they turn the corner into the second half the pressure is on. Bochy stresses to his club the importance of winning series. “That’s what it’s all about,” he said. “We’ve got to pick it up. San Diego’s playing well. The last thing you want to do is get too far behind.” After the four games against the Mets, the Giants play 12 of their next 16 against the division with only one off day during that stretch. “You don’t want to get seven or eight games out,” Huff said. “You want to stay aﬂoat.”
Patrick finding stock cars tough to handle
By Chris Jenkins
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
JOLIET, Ill. — Those who know Danica Patrick mainly for racy photo shoots and commercials are seeing something decidedly different in her public persona these days: humility. For a high-proﬁle driver trying to make the transition from IndyCar to NASCAR, responding to high expectations by running outside the top 20 is a formula for modesty. “I just have a lot to learn,” Patrick said. “I don’t want to make excuses.
It’s hard. So I think it’s been OK. I don’t know what else to say. I’m learning. I’m learning what I’m supposed to be doing, I’m learning with people watching — which is hard. But it’s just the way it is and I’m lucky that people are watching.” Patrick ﬁnished 24th in Friday night’s Nationwide series race at Chicagoland Speedway, her best ﬁnish in ﬁve starts in NASCAR’s second-tier series this season. Despite her tough transition, Patrick remains upbeat that she’ll eventually have success. Even if it’s going to take more time than she might have
thought going into the season. “I’m starting to realize this is really challenging, it’s really hard,” Patrick said. “And I need to not be Danica Patrick so hard on myself and I need to just stay upbeat and take every lap as an improvement from the one before and just keep marching forward. I feel kind of bad that it’s not more amazing out there, and
I’m not higher up and it’s more entertaining for fans and it’s a better story. But it’s just very hard, and I think it speaks volumes about how good these drivers are in stock cars, and how challenging it is.” In a sport where a driver and crew chief need precise, clear communication to make a car handle properly, Patrick doesn’t even really speak the language yet. Making suspension adjustments on an Indy car has little or nothing to do with making suspension adjustments on a stock car, so Patrick can’t do much to help crew chief Tony Eury Jr. ﬁnd the
right setup at this point. “Is it a spring, is it the camber, is it the bar, is it geometry? I don’t have any idea,” Patrick said. “No idea. So I’m not very good at helping Tony Jr. go in a certain direction. All I can say is what the car is doing. I wish I could help out more with that, but that’s just going to come with time.” Although some established NASCAR drivers expressed annoyance about the amount of attention Patrick received at the beginning of the season, nobody’s really knocking her for not running up front.

Paulinho wins 10th stage,Schleck still leads
By Jamey Keaten
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
GAP, France — Something ﬁnally went right for Lance Armstrong’s squad at the Tour de France. Team RadioShack got its ﬁrst taste of success at this year’s Tour when Sergio Paulinho of Portugal captured the 10th stage Wednesday, narrowly winning a two-man sprint among breakaway riders. Andy Schleck of Luxembourg retained the yellow jersey. He ﬁnished in the main pack more than 14 minutes back, alongside his biggest rivals for the title.
Paulinho edged Vasil Kiryienka of Belarus over the sun-baked 111mile trek from Chambery to Gap that featured one difﬁcult climb — the Laffrey pass — as the race left
the Alps. Paulinho pointed skyward then sucked his thumb in honor of his 8month-old daughter after beating Kiryienka by less than half a wheel.
They both clocked 5 hours, 10 minutes, 56 s e c o n d s . Belgium’s Dries Devenyns was third: 1:29 behind. “This is a vicAndy Schleck tory we’ve been looking for a while, after all the bad luck we had in the ﬁrst week,” Paulinho said. “I hope this victory gives morale back to our team.” It was the Portuguese rider’s ﬁrst individual stage win at the Tour,
though he was part of the Astana squad — including Lance Armstrong and 2010 Tour winner Alberto Contador — that won the team timetrial last year. Armstrong brought Paulinho and several other former Astana teammates to the RadioShack team, which was formed around the seven-time champion last year. Armstrong fell out of contention in the ﬁrst Alpine stage on Sunday after getting tangled up in three crashes and losing crucial minutes against the top contenders. The team is now banking on the podium hopes of Levi Leipheimer, who is sixth overall.
The 30-year-old Paulinho and Kiryienka, of Caisse d’Epargne, were part of a six-man breakaway made up of riders far back in the overall standings. The pack ﬁnished 14:19 behind Paulinho. Paulinho and Kiryienka were part of a breakaway that took off around the 23-mile mark, and the pack didn’t give chase. Even the winners clocked an average of 21 mph during the stage — a relative snail’s pace at the Tour. The overall standings didn’t change. Schleck leads Contador by 41 seconds, while Samuel Sanchez of Spain was third, 2:45 back. Leipheimer is 3:59 behind.
A British Open with all the elements
By Doug Ferguson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — The locals are famous for saying that if it’s “nae rain and nae wind then it’s nae golf.” There was rain. And there was wind. There just wasn’t much golf being played Wednesday on the eve of the British Open. Kenny Perry wanted to play one more practice round, and the miserable weather wasn’t about to stop him. It just made him think about how long he really wanted to be in the
kind of elements St. Andrews hasn’t seen in 15 years for the British Open. Three holes after he teed off, with raindrops on his glasses and water dripping off a black rainsuit that had turned slick and shiny, he cut across the Old Course to play two holes back toward the clubhouse. As he stepped onto the 17th tee, Perry noticed a man grinning at him from beneath an umbrella. “Are you enjoying our weather?” the man said in his thick brogue. “What’s there to enjoy?” Perry replied. Worse yet was leaving the 17th tee with Nick Watney, rain pelting them
sideways and the sound of laughter above them. There was Ian Poulter, dressed in shorts and a shirt, taking pictures of them from the comfort of his third-ﬂoor room in the Old Course Hotel. “Having fun down there, boys?” Poulter called out to them. The fun doesn’t begin until Thursday, when the 139th version of golf’s oldest championship gets under way at St. Andrews, with weather that likely will as much of a factor as Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson or any of the players. And it’s about time. The last time the Open came to St.
Andrews, there was only one round of a stiff breeze and Woods won by ﬁve shots at 14-under 274. Ten years ago on a sun-baked links, Woods set a major championship record at 19under 269 for an eight-shot win in perfect weather. But there was nasty weather in 1995, when John Daly ﬁnished at 6-under 282 and won a playoff. The Royal and Ancient, which runs this tournament, doesn’t get wrapped up in scores. It lets nature decide that. “The forecast for the championship is changeable — blustery, showery conditions,” R&A chief executive Peter Dawson, barely able to contain
a grin. “Pretty good for links golf.” This is what Woods will face as he tries to make more history at the home of golf. No one has ever won the Open three times at St. Andrews, and this stage could be an important test for golf’s No. 1 player. Woods has never gone this far into the calendar without winning. He has never gone more than seven tournaments to start a season without a victory, and the Open marks his seventh event. His preparations included playing Sunday in gusts that approached 50 mph, and the next two days in wind out of different directions.

hurry. After Anthony Higuero and Jake Steenvoorde drew walks, Dominic Fonseca, Ian Sanchez and Oscar Gutierrez all hit slow, bouncing balls — the latter two coming on bunts — back to San Mateo starting pitcher Alan Katz. But all three balls turned golden for San Bruno. Fonseca reached on a throwing error to score one run, Sanchez reached on a ﬁelder’s choice after Steenvorde beat Katz’s throw to home plate and Gutierrez reached on another San Mateo throwing error that allowed two more runs to score to make it 6-1. Gutierrez advanced all the way to third base on the play, and moments later scored on Tim Gretter’s sharp single to right ﬁeld to cap the uprising. All told, San Mateo committed ﬁve errors that led to ﬁve San Bruno runs. “(Making key mistakes at crucial moments) has been something that has shot us in the foot coming up. But, the Giants do have the thirdbest team ERA in the National League. The hitting has been more problematic. Between grounding into a league-leading number of double plays and their penchant for leaving runners on base, the Giants need to pick up their offensive game. Driving in a few more of those base runners, as well as limiting the double plays would do wonders for the offense. So would a re-energized Pablo Sandoval. Perhaps he’s just going through a sophomore slump, but he appears to be thinking too much and lunging too often at the plate. If he can approach the player who was one of the rising stars in the game last season, the Giants have a legitimate shot at winning the National League West. To do that, however, the Giants have to play better against division opponents. In the the whole tournament,” San Mateo manager Wesley You said. “(Whether it’s) bunt coverage or communication, we’ve been having problems in those areas at the wrong time in the game. We deﬁnitely didn’t help ourselves out.” Indeed. The White Sox outhit San Bruno, 76, but was undone by their shoddy defense. San Bruno, meanwhile, ﬁnished with only one error to back up a stellar start from Ryan Brown, who allowed just one earned run over 6 1/3 innings. Gretter came in and recorded the ﬁnal two outs. “Ryan just got back from vacation and it’s great having him back,” Stagnaro said. “He always starts a little slow and we wish we could just start the game in the second inning. But once he gets going, he usually does well.” Up until the sixth, both teams failed to produce in key situations. The squads combined ﬁrst half, the Giants went 9-20 against the West, which is completely unacceptable. They’ll have a chance to turn it around, beginning with the second series of the second half, when they travel to Los Angeles to play the Dodgers for a three-game set. If the Giants do decide they need to make a move, here’s hoping it’s a “Wow!” move. If they’re going to trade one of their front-line pitchers, it better be for an impact player. No more Shea Hillenbrands or Ryan Garkos. It’s time the Giants get value for value, and it’s time they start valuing their players more than they value the player they’re trying to get. Unless it’s a knock-your-socks off kind of deal, I believe the Giants dance with who they brought. *** Last Friday night, the Bel-Mateo Babe

to leave 14 runners on base — seven each — as Brown and Katz (5 innings, two earned runs) were at their best when the opposing team threatened to score. San Bruno went up 1-0 in the ﬁrst on a J.J. Desanto single before San Mateo tied things up in the top of the second on a single from James Egan. However, San Bruno took the lead for good on Fonseca’s run-scoring groundout in the ﬁfth. The White Sox added a run in the seventh, but it wasn’t nearly enough after they let things slip away in the sixth. “It seems like we were coming from behind the whole tournament and today we just put ourselves too deep in the hole,” You said. Alex Tyler led San Mateo with two singles, while Gretter had two hits for San Bruno. There was only one extra base hit — a double from San Bruno’s Lucy Molina with two outs in the ﬁfth inning. Ruth 15s team captured the Peninsula Babe Ruth tournament championship, after which Bel-Mateo manager Steve Vega said it was the ﬁrst time a Belmont team has won the District 6 tournament and advanced to the state tournament. Which is technically true — for a Belmont team. San Mateo, on the other hand, is a different story. Before the two programs merged before last season, the San Mateo Babe Ruth 15s won the District 6 tournament in 2004. The Bel-Mateo program was formed when San Mateo Babe Ruth could not afford the fee hike for ﬁeld usage.

“(Against Burlingame) it looked like we were cooked and dead in the water,” Stagnaro said. “But San Bruno always plays with scrappiness. At this point, we’re still not really breaking out with big hits, but we’re pitching well and our defense is making plays and that’s what you need to win ball games. The kids are already looking forward to playing again, so it’s going to be interesting to see what happens.” Wednesday’s contest was close until things got away from San Mateo in the bottom of the sixth inning.

FIFA rankings: Spain No. 1, U.S. moves up to No. 13
ZURICH — Spain regained the top spot in the FIFA rankings after winning its ﬁrst World Cup title, and the United States moved up one place to 13th. Spain, which beat the Netherlands 1-0 in overtime on Sunday to add the world title to its European Championship, took over No. 1 from ﬁve-time champion Brazil, which had displaced the Spaniards in April. The Netherlands moved up two places to second in rankings released Wednesday, while Brazil fell to third. The U.S., which plays Brazil in an exhibition on Aug. 10 at East Rutherford, N.J., is in its highest position since the Americans were 11th in October 2009. The Americans won their World Cup group for the ﬁrst time since 1930 before losing to Ghana in the second round. Third-place Germany climbed two places to No. 4 and was followed by Argentina, Uruguay, England, Portugal, Egypt and Chile.

Just in case, he’s telling players to save their money and stay united. Hunter hopes “cooler heads prevail” and it won’t come to that point, with the NBA receiving plenty of positive press during a seven-game NBA ﬁnals between the Lakers and Celtics, before the free agency period that saw LeBron James move to Miami. “This is a high time for the NBA, a time for celebration,” Hunter said. “So we’re going to do everything within our power — I can’t underscore that enough — to try to reach an agreement.”
SECAUCUS, N.J. — Stop the rumors about French forward Thierry Henry joining the New York Red Bulls. He’s here. The 32-year-old former Arsenal and Barcelona player signed a multiyear contract on Wednesday and he is expected to make his Red Bulls’ debut on July 22 in an exhibition against Premier League club Tottenham. “Some people might think I am going to go there for vacation — I do actually go there for vacation — but it won’t be for vacation this time,” Henry said in a video interview on the club website. “I’m a competitor and I don’t like to lose.” Henry was released by Barcelona last month after scoring just four goals last season. “This marks an exciting new chapter in my career and life,” Henry said. Henry will be introduced at a news conference on Thursday at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J.
“Thierry is not only a world class player who will undoubtedly improve our squad, but he has shown most importantly throughout his career that he is a winner,” said Erik Soler, general manager and sporting director of the Red Bulls. “He has Thierry Henry made it clear to us that he is committed in the short and long term to help in our vision of making our organization the premium franchise in Major League Soccer.” With France, Henry won the World Cup in 1998 and the 2000 European Championship, but sparked outrage last year when his handball during a playoff match helped to deny Ireland a spot at this year’s World Cup. At the tournament in South Africa, France was eliminated in the ﬁrst round after the team was Lisa Leslie announced her name.

And since he said player salaries were down by about 1 percent this season, he still maintains the best way for the owners to get the help they need is from each other.
beset by a player protest. Henry guided Arsenal to the Premier League title in 2002 and 2004 before leaving in 2007 to join Barcelona, where he won six trophies in 2009 — the Champions League, the Spanish league, the Copa del Rey, the Spanish Supercup, the UEFA Supercup and the FIFA Club World Cup. The Red Bulls, previously were known as the MetroStars, have a history of signing star players in the twilight of their careers. Italian Roberto Donadoni played for them in 1996 and ’97, Brazilian great Branco was with them in 1997, German Lothar Matthaus in 2000 and Frenchman Youri Djorkaeff was here in 2005 and ’06. None of them led the team to a title. Red Bulls leading scorer Juan Pablo Angel welcomed Henry’s arrival, which was announced just days after New York played a 0-0 tie with D.C. United. “I hear that Chiney is better than her sister, which is kind of hard to believe,” she said. Chiney demurred, saying, “We’re two different kinds of players. I’m more of a ballhandler and penetrator, and she’s more of a post, block-oriented player. One thing for sure, I’m going to be a freshman next year, I’m going to make mistakes, but I’m going to try my hardest.” Knight and Ogwumike join such previous winners as LeBron James, Allyson Felix, Dwight Howard, Candace Parker and Greg Oden, all of whom went on to successful pro careers.

Coconut lights add an exotic touch
By Sean Conway
TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES
As most people know, the food we call coconut is the white interior ﬂesh of the coconut palm tree seed. What may surprise you, though, is how valuable this tree has been to the societies that cultivated it. It has been called the tree of life because it supplies materials to meet so many basic human needs, from food to shelter and much more. Palm fronds are used for thatching roofs and making mats. Coconut shells are used to make bowls, buttons and utensils. They’re also ground into a ﬁber called coir that is added to potting soil to aid drainage. Whether you love the taste of coconut ﬂesh or hate it — as with Slim Jim, opinions tend toward the extremes — if you’re interested in craft projects, coconuts offer a range of interesting possibilities. A recent guest on “Cultivating Life,” ﬂoral designer and set decorator Aaron Caramanas, showed me two innovative projects using coconuts: String lights and candles. Both of these projects would be perfect for a tropical themed party, or for everyday use all summer. To make the string lights, you’ll need 7 to 9 fresh coconuts or coconut shells; about 20 feet of plain brown electrical cord; a paint pen; a set of carnival light sockets with candelabra bases and plug-and-cap hardware; and add-atap male and female plug parts (similar to the hardware found on the ends of strings of Christmas lights). You can ﬁnd all of these things at a hardware or lighting-supply store. You’ll also need a large bowl, a drill and 1/4inch bit and a chop saw (or hand saw with vice). Place a coconut in a wide-mouthed cup or bowl with the three “eyes” pointing up. Drill
two 1/4-inch holes about 1 inch apart centered on the top of the coconut, then drain the nut of its liquid. Using a chop saw (or hand saw and vice) slice off the non-drilled end of the nut, giving you a cup about 4 inches deep. Remove the coconut meat with a pairing knife. Repeat for all the coconuts Now prepare the cord. Give yourself about 8 to 10 feet of slack for plugging in the lights, then mark the cord every 18 inches with a paint pen. Weave the cord in and out of the shells, with each pen mark centered inside a cup. Individually attach the lantern light sockets at the pen marks by sandwiching the cord between the plug-and-cap hardware and screwing it together. No splicing is necessary; prongs in the hardware pierce through rubber coating to the electric wiring to make their connection. Just follow directions on the box the hardware comes in. Attach electric plug and cap hardware to ends of the cord. Again, no splicing is necessary; just follow directions that come with the plugs. Once you’ve added the bulbs of your choice to the sockets, string lights above your outdoor dining area for a festive tropical feel. (A video demonstration of this project can be found at www.cultivatinglife.com.) To make a coconut container candle, drain coconut as above and saw the end off with the three eyes. Make another pass with the saw 1

inch in from cut edge, making both a ring and a cup. Remove all the meat. The ring becomes a perfect support for the cup so it doesn’t topple over. Place a primed candlewick in cup. Fill cup with melted beeswax with a few drops of coconut or any other essential oil. Secure wick with a clothespin and chopstick so it remains centered, and let the wax cool. The candle will be ready to enjoy in just a few hours.

Go native with fruit
By Lee Reich
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Take a walk through the woods in many parts of the country in coming months and you may ﬁnd some tasty fruit dangling from the branches of wild trees. Some of these trees are also available through nurseries because they are such ideal landscape plants, naturally blending with their surroundings to provide beauty as well as food. Native tree fruit are rugged plants, usually able to thrive with little care. Some people are surprised to learn that apples, peaches, cherries and most other common tree fruit are not native. Unlike these common tree fruit, which generally require rigorous attention to insect and disease problems, native tree fruit are rarely bothered by pests. Native fruit have long been part of the diet of raccoons, possums and birds, so you might be forced to share your harvest with these and other animals. My experience, though, has been that once these trees get some size to them, they yield enough to satisfy winged, four-legged and two-legged creatures alike. Native fruit also are easy to prune. In their youth, they need only enough pruning to shape them into a sturdy framework of well-positioned main branches. With age, these plants require little or no pruning. Occasional dead or wayward branches need to be cut away, but what’s required is nothing like the combination of science and art required to prune, for example, an apple tree. Like any plant, native fruit trees grow well only if given a suitable site. They bear the best crops in full sun, yet will grow well and bear some fruit even in partial shade. Especially the ﬁrst season, give them the same care you would any other young plant, keeping weeds at bay and watering when necessary. Here are my favorite native fruit: • Pawpaw has also been called the Hoosier banana, the Michigan banana, the whatever-state-it-grows-in banana. It is native throughout the East, as far west as Nebraska. The fruit tastes similar to banana, with some vanilla custard, mango and pineapple mixed in. The texture is smooth and creamy, also banana-like, except for the inedible, lima-bean-size seeds in the ﬂesh. The medium-size tree has a pyramidal form and long, lush green leaves that turn a clear yellow in autumn. Although pawpaw looks and tastes tropical, it can grow anywhere that winter temperatures stay above about minus 20 degrees! • Juneberries are native from coast to coast. Juneberry is commonly planted as an ornamental, primarily for its blossoms — white or reddish, and opening early in the season — and for its leaves, which turn vibrant shades of purple, orange and yellow in autumn. The fruit are the size of blueberries and usually dark blue, but that’s where blueberry and juneberry part company. Juneberry fruit are sweet and juicy, with the richness of cherries and a hint of almond. • Mulberry fruit resemble those of blackberry in shape, but range in color from deep black to red to lavender to pure white. Fruit on wild trees often are syrupy sweet, endearing them especially to children. The best varieties, such as Illinois Everbearing, have a refreshing dash of tartness. Illinois Everbearing, like many of the wild mulberry trees you may ﬁnd, are actually hybrids of our native red mulberry with the white mulberry, which was introduced from China over 150 years ago for raising silkworms.
Flowers benefit from pruning
By Lee Reich
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
and some other spiky ﬂowers, you have a choice: Do you want a single large spike, or several smaller ones?
Flowers are the ephemerals of the garden. They vanish without a trace at the end of each season, so you would hardly think them worth pruning during their brief stay. Yet pruning can help make more ﬂowers, make the plants bushier or increase the size of individual ﬂowers. So grab your hand shears and sharpen your thumbnail for a stroll among the ﬂowers.
A PINCH MIGHT MAKE BIGGER FLOWERS
Just as pinching the tips of stems makes bushier plants with more but smaller ﬂowers, limiting the number of stems or ﬂowers has the opposite effect. This is how you grow “football” ’mums and “dinnerplate” dahlias. Create a plant with fewer but larger ﬂowers by pinching off side shoots, pinching off ﬂower buds forming along a stem, or reducing the number of stems sprouting from ground level. Remove a side shoot or lateral ﬂower bud while either is still young and succulent. The best time to limit the number of stems growing from ground level — New England aster and perennial phlox are two that put on a better show with this treatment — was earlier in the season, just as growth was beginning.
START WITH A PINCH,FOR BUSHINESS
Pinching out the tips of growing stems stops, at least temporarily, their growth, in so doing coaxing growth of side shoots. The result: bushier plants. Even though plants such as lavatera, marigold and zinnia are naturally bushy, pinching out the tips of their stems makes them more so. Don’t carry pinching to excess, though, because it does delay ﬂowering; pinching is something you want to do mostly at the beginning of the growing season. And plants with more side shoots will have more — but smaller — ﬂowers. A single pinch is usually sufﬁcient for marigolds and other naturally bushy ﬂowers. Certain chrysanthemums look best with repeated pinching. With snapdragon
DEADHEAD FOR MORE FLOWERS
Removing spent ﬂowers — called deadheading — is yet another way pruning gets the best out of your ﬂower plants. Deadheading does double duty, keeping plants tidy and preventing seed formation. Seed formation can drain enough energy from a plant to slow or stop ﬂowering.
Deadheading is especially effective at keeping annuals energetic because all they live for is to ﬂower enough to set some seeds. Then these plants slow down or die, all in one season. However, even some perennials will come back for a repeat performance later in the season if you cut back their ﬂowers after the ﬁrst show. Try it with delphinium and Canterbury bells. Cutting individual, spent ﬂowers from mounded plants bearing small ﬂowers would be much too tedious. Deadhead alyssum, nasturtium, petunias and other such plants by shearing the whole plant back with either grass or hedge shears after a ﬂush of bloom. Give mounded perennials like basket-of-gold, cottage pink, edging candytuft and spike speedwell similar treatment. All these plants will look ragged for awhile, but soon cover shorn stems and leaves with new growth and ﬂowers. Deadheading also keeps plants tidy by preventing unwanted self-seeding. Especially fecund plants include feverfew, perennial phlox, thick-leaf phlox and, with a name to scare any fastidious gardener, giant hogweed hogweed (considered an invasive weed in many places). Lop off their spent ﬂowers before they make seeds, or these ﬂowers are apt to become “weeds,” that is, any plant in the wrong place.

Rent a farmer? Growers visit city backyards
By Sheila Mulrooney Eldred
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Anders Gurda hops off his bike at various backyards in Minneapolis, grabs his garden tools and starts weeding. When he’s done checking for garden pests, adjusting the irrigation system and harvesting the vegetables (which he puts in the home’s refrigerator or cooler), he cycles to his next plot and starts over. He’s an urban backyard farmer, one of a growing breed throughout the country thanks to programs like Minnesota’s Backyard Harvest. “It’s like having a CSA (community-supported agriculture program) in your own backyard, and you’re supporting a farmer without a farm,” Gurda said. The goal of Backyard Harvest, said coordinator Krista Leraas, is to encourage the growing of local foods. The group, under the nonproﬁt umbrella organization Permaculture Research Institute, is in its second year. Although it is rare in operating as a nonproﬁt, dozens of programs with similar missions have sprung up around the country and worldwide. In Portland, Ore., a group called Your Backyard Farmer began in 2006 when Donna Smith and Robyn Streeter were growing weary of driving through the city’s outskirts looking for affordable land to farm. The thought struck them: “Why aren’t we bringing food to the people?” They drove back to the city and printed out ﬂyers advertising their farming services in urban neighborhoods. By the time they got home, they had 11 messages inquiring about Your Backyard Farmer. That’s the most advertising they’ve ever had to do. Fast-forward four years: Your Backyard
In many backyard-farming programs, homeowners can choose from a wide variety of vegetables and fruit,and can choose full service (a farmer plants,maintains and harvests the garden) or a consulting service (the farmer teaches the homeowner how to maintain the garden so the homeowner can take over the next year).
Farmer is thriving with 58 backyard farms — and a waiting list for 2011. At least 27 other programs around the country and 15 abroad have consulted with Smith and Streeter. People love the program for its convenience, the food’s freshness and the ability to customize, Smith said. “People could choose what they wanted — every single farm is different,” Smith said. “Typical yards include tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and people thought it was pretty cool to have those in your own yard. Then everybody
started going, I’ll try arugula or radicchio. We have 42 vegetables, and they can choose them all or just a few. If you don’t like it we’ll pull it out of the ground.” In many backyard-farming programs, homeowners can choose from a wide variety of vegetables and fruit, and can choose full service (a farmer plants, maintains and harvests the garden) or a consulting service (the farmer teaches the homeowner how to maintain the garden so the homeowner can take over the next year). Farmers may also give advice on how to use, cook and store the produce. Prices depend on the growing season and the square footage. In Minneapolis, prices average around $1,250 for the season, or about $11-$13 per square foot, and in Portland, prices start at $1,675 per season. Services are often available only in certain neighborhoods to reduce the farmers’ commutes. The programs often focus on sustainability and organic foods. The ultimate goal, said Leraas, is to create urban homesteads where people raise chickens, reuse rainwater and keep honeybees, for example, in addition to gardening. “We’re spokespeople, pushing the local foods movement just by being there,” said Gurda. Urban gardens carry challenges: carting tools and materials from yard to yard, working in conﬁned spaces that can make it harder to organize plants, using soil that is sometimes contaminated with lead. The work is often seasonal. For the farmers, however, the rewards often go beyond money. Smith and Streeter have made enough from Your Backyard Farmer to support themselves, but Gurda works three other jobs to support his part-time work as a farmer.

Old-school ‘Dragon Quest IX’soars
The role-playing game has undergone a remarkable evolution over the last decade. Once, the genre was deﬁned by its pseudo-medieval settings and slow-paced action. But recent RPGs like “Mass Effect” and “Fallout 3” have shifted the storytelling into the future while making ﬁghting more visceral, demanding reﬂexes as much as strategy. “Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies” (Nintendo/Square Enix, for the DS, $34.99) ignores all that. It’s a complete throwback to classic sword-andsorcery RPGs like “Wizardry” and “Ultima.” And it’s delightful. The essence of “DQ IX” is as oldschool as it gets: You round up a posse of diverse characters — say, warrior, mage, thief and priest — and venture into the wilderness. There are castles to explore, dungeons to loot and hundreds of monsters to slay. The most old-fashioned element is the combat. Each time your party runs into a monster, the screen reverts to a series of menus through which you order each character to attack (physically or with magic), defend, heal or perform one of about a dozen other operations. While such “turn-based combat” has fallen out of fashion, I like the strategic emphasis, and I’m glad developer Level-5 has stuck with it. The primary quest is suitably epic. Your character is a guardian angel who plummets to the mortal world after a cataclysm disrupts the heavens. Your assignment is to reclaim seven mystical “fyggs” that have fallen into human hands, creating all sorts of havoc. There’s an absorbing variety to these seven missions, ranging from ghost story to detective drama to a nifty Harry Potter parody set at a boarding school called Swinedimples. That droll sense of humor pervades “DQ IX,” from its quirky characters to its wittily designed monsters, like the cruelcumber, cyclown and shocktopus. The diverse story line keeps the campaign interesting throughout its 40-hour length. And if t h a t i s n ’ t enough for you, the game is packed with dozens of side missions and randomly generated bonus dungeons that can easily double its length. There are some old RPG habits I wish had been broken. The maps here are frustratingly vague, to the degree where you often have to roam aimlessly until you stumble upon major landmarks. You can’t zoom in on your destination, and you can’t write on a map (a handy trick Nintendo has used in its “Legend of Zelda” DS games). from prison, jail, probation, parole or mental hospital, according to the civil grand jury report. The civil grand jury report states that the average sex offender will victimize between 50-150 children before coming to the attention of law enforcement and that at least 50 percent of all convicted sexual predators will re-offend. The report also details the use of the Internet by sexual predators. The Sheriff’s SHOP unit in early 2007 estimated that in the county, 3,000 minors received online sexual solicitation during 2006; 4,300 minors met face to face with a stranger they ﬁrst met online in 2006; and 3,000 minors have been asked by Internet strangers to keep their relationship a secret in addition to having been fooled about the age of the stranger the ﬁrst time online. In the county, Redwood City has the most registered sex offenders residing in the city with 142. South San Francisco is second with 132 registered sex offenders and Daly City has 98 registered sex offenders. Of the 196 sex offenders currently on probation in the county, 76 percent committed crimes against children, including 49 who were convicted of having sex with a minor under the age of 14.

a signiﬁcant drop in examining potential victims of sex crimes. Suspected victims of child sexual abuse and assault in the county are taken to The Keller Center for Family Violence Intervention in the San Mateo Medical Center for forensic examination. While the total number of exams conducted at the Keller Center from 2004-2009 referred by city police departments remained approximately constant, according to the report, the number of potential victims taken for exams by sheriff’s deputies declined more than 50 percent following budget prioritization changes in 2007. The civil grand jury recommends that the Sheriff’s Ofﬁce should reinstate its permanent, dedicated three- to four-person sexual investigation unit, including all SHOP activities. It also recommends the SAFE task force should be reinstated and that the cost to support the unit should be split between the Sheriff’s Ofﬁce and cities within the county. “All law enforcement and particularly those of specialized units are very much dependent on funding. This is dramatically evident in the current ﬁscal year budget, when a total of 21 positions had to be cut to meet budget requirements,”
according to Munks. Munks said he sought support from the county police chiefs but, due to their own ﬁscal limitations, they were unable to add staff to the SHOP unit. Currently, the top priority for the Sheriff’s Ofﬁce is the construction of a replacement jail to ease overcrowding, according to Munks. In response to a civil grand jury survey, 16 of 19 city police chiefs in the county said that reinstating a countywide task force to coordinate sexual offense prevention and enforcement efforts would be of great beneﬁt to their communities. There are 750 sex offenders who have registered with San Mateo County law enforcement agencies after their release nity for money, we are willing to share in the pain,” said Goodman, who added exploring the ideas is the start of such a conversation. Goodman requested a list of possible revenue-generating ideas a few months back, adding there had to be unique ideas that weren’t brand new. Creating partnerships with other districts, like offering lunch services and hiring a grant writer were possibilities that interested Goodman. Other ideas include selling the naming rights to buildings, partnering with professional athletic teams, allowing community groups to “adopt” certain schools by providing supplies, sharing sales tax revenue with the city, charging students for transportation to athletic handgun while yelling to “shut the f— up.” The men told Wilson they lived in the same complex and to go back to his unit. Prosecutors say Wilson retaliated by asking “Who the f— do you think you are talking to? You can’t talk to me like that” and lowering his weapon. One man charged at Wilson and was shot in the upper left back, collapsing a lung. The second man also ran at Wilson and was shot in the abdomen but was able to punch him several times in the face

ilar offering for some time. Selling homes on unused property could be a different approach. Another idea is selling land from currentlyclosed school sites, according to a ﬁvepage staff report ﬁlled with ideas. Trustee Maurice Goodman called discussing the out-of-the-box ideas the responsibility of the board. The district is poised to place a bond measure before voters on the November ballot. “Not only are we asking the commu-
games and allowing sponsorship of certain school events. Not all ideas are large ones. The list also includes no-water urinals, swapping out paper towels for air dryers in rest rooms, and removing refrigerators, microwaves, coffee pots and hot plates from classrooms. The last option could save energy and also encourage employees to purchase school lunches on campus, according to the staff report. The board meets 7 p.m. Thursday, July 15 at the District Ofﬁce, 398 B St. in South San Francisco.
