Farm bureau probes finances
Beautification Committee looks at books, too, following death of Jack Olsen
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
Rumors of ﬁnancial mismanagement have swept through two organizations in Half Moon Bay following the death of prominent coastsider Jack Olsen in May. Olsen was the executive administrator of the San Mateo County
Farm Bureau and treasurer of Half Moon B a y ’ s Beautification Committee before cancer claimed his life at the age of 50. Beautification
Committee Chair Cameron Palmer said his group decided to check its books after “rumbles on the street” indicated the farm bureau was doing the same thing. “We all loved and respected Jack. Let’s hope everything turns out OK,” Palmer said yesterday. The committee earns most of its money from the city’s annual
Pumpkin Festival and doles it out to area nonproﬁts, Palmer said. “Some years we gave out no money and some years we would give out as much as $100,000 depending on corporate sponsorships,” Palmer said. The committee is having a certified public accountant internally review the books, Palmer said.
“We are behind the curve looking into our books,” he said. Donald Sheardown, a Half Moon Bay businessman, has questions related to the Beautification Committee’s ﬁnances and has started to seek out answers on the coastside regarding the rumors of ﬁnancial mismanagement related to

Even after a year, Jared Gilbert’s family can remember his smile, his laugh. A favorite photo in a tux. The way he treasured his loved ones. A year after Gilbert died, his family still sobs at the mention of his name and wonder why. “There is nothing that can ﬁll the hole in my heart. Nothing,” said Gilbert’s mother, Daphne Holtz. Charges filed earlier this year against the young driver at the wheel of the car which ﬂipped near Oyster Point on Aug. 4, killing Gilbert and his friend, will never give them that answer to why he died. But in the eyes of the law, they hope it might solidify responsibility. “She didn’t even apologize,” Gilbert’s cousin, Andrea Holtz, says of Michelle Shaghzoian, the 19year-old woman who is now charged in the death of Gilbert, 19,
“It’s like they think let’s move on but my family’s not moving on.My cousins, my grandmother, we’re all just trying to do the best we can, but it’s like Alex and Jared’s life meant nothing.”

and Alexandra Aurora Valdivia, 17. But according to defense attorney Phil Barnett, Shaghzoian is not shirking responsibility. Instead, she is herself recovering from the accident which left her comatose for a month and currently limited by a traumatic brain injury. “This is such a tragedy. Two people are dead and another has quite a difﬁcult road ahead,” Barnett said. On Friday, Shaghzoian has a pretrial conference that might propel her before a jury on two misde-

District mulling unique City seeks to save story time ideas to generate funds San Bruno tries to lessen budget impact on library
By Heather Murtagh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
Charging for summer school and building then selling single-family homes are among the ideas the South San Francisco Uniﬁed School District Board of Trustees hopes to research to raise revenue. Recent budget years have seen the decline in revenue, meaning millions in cuts for the district. As a result, a variety of revenue-generating and cost-saving ideas were put before the board last night for discussion. Cultivating
partnerships with cities and other schools while considering corporate sponsorships and researching possibilities of building houses on the former Foxridge site generated much interest from the board. Trustee Maurice Goodman wanted the items brought back with possible timelines for implementation. In the short-term, he asked for a focus on things like hiring a grant writer who gets paid when such funds are secured, and partnering with the San Mateo County Community College District for summer

Keeping the library open Fridays and maintaining community activities like story time could continue in San Bruno if $22,000 is not cut as originally planned. On Tuesday, the San Bruno City Council approved a $30.3 million budget for the recently-started ﬁscal year. Among the $1.85 million in reductions was $70,000 in library services. The council requested staff come up with a plan to cut $48,000 instead, saving $22,000 for library services. A proposal to
make that work should go before the council Tuesday, July 27. “There are a lot of people who use the library for Internet access, that’s it,” said Councilwoman Irene O’Connell. “It’s free. They can access their e-mail. ... That’s their only access.” Taking away one day of access seemed like a larger harm to the community than the beneﬁt of saving $22,000, she said. Mayor Jim Ruane agreed. “Believe it or not, not everyone has their

Strange but True
Cops:Woman made up carjacking to cover up sex
VINELAND, N.J. — Authorities say a New Jersey woman told them she was carjacked to cover up the fact that her car crashed because she was having sex. The 23-year-old had initially told police she got lost on Sunday and asked a man for directions. Police say she told them the man pulled her out of the car at gunpoint and threw her to the ground. Police say she later admitted she picked up a man and let him drive, and the car crashed into a tree while they were engaged in a sex act. Ofﬁcers say the car had been set on ﬁre. The woman is accused of ﬁling a false police report. She has refused to identify the man. New York’s Lady Liberty on the South Carolina coast. But after hearing Greene’s idea, the RiverDogs decided to put a picture of his face on the statues instead. “Who better epitomizes the American dream that anything is possible than Mr. Greene?” said RiverDogs General Manager Dave Echols. Greene said Thursday the team didn’t talk to him before creating the promotion, but he doesn’t mind. “As long as it looks good and is in good nature, I’m OK,” Greene said by phone from his home near Manning. The team also plans to have a press ready to make T-shirts modeled on the “Greene Family Reunion” shirt from 1993 the candidate was photographed in the day after his shocking primary win. The RiverDogs are a Class A afﬁliate of the New York Yankees known for wacky promotions, thanks in part to president Mike Veeck, whose father was famous major league baseball promoter Bill Veeck.

Jail,probation for college shooting
By Michelle Durand
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
A baseball hit and damaged the windshield of a car on the 1500 block of Walnut Street in San Carlos before 6:15 p.m. Friday, July 2.
The Skyline College student involved in a shooting on the San Bruno campus that injured his friend was sentenced yesterday to a year in jail and probation for possessing the loaded weapon. Germaine Barnard Benjamin, 19, also pleaded no contest in May to a gang enhancement. On Thursday, Judge Susan Etezadi imposed a year in jail, the amount indicated when Benjamin changed his plea, followed by three years supervised probation and standard court fees and ﬁnes. Benjamin brought the handgun to the community college Sept. 2 and it ended up in the middle of a confrontation between two groups of gangmembers in the campus parking lot.
Benjamin’s friend, 20year-old Eric Brewer, was shot in the buttocks and later charged himself with having a gun on a college campus. He pleaded no contest in January to carrying a loaded ﬁrearm in a public place and sentenced to approximately nine Germaine months for which he Benjamin already had credit. The event, which came just weeks after the attempted bombing of Hillsdale High School, left the campus of 3,000 on lockdown and rattled. Police were called to the campus at 1:30 p.m. on a call of shots ﬁred in the number six parking lot. Police immediately evacuated the community college, classroom by classroom, and students were forced to leave their vehi-
cles on campus and walk down College Drive where it intersects Sheryl Drive in San Bruno. SamTrans buses were also rerouted. Brewer was shot once in the buttocks and hospitalized for a week. Three men, including Benjamin, were arrested approximately four hours later but only he was charged. Although a victim, Brewer was also identiﬁed as an alleged participant. Prosecutors say Brewer gave Benjamin the gun during the incident and he dropped it in the trash afterward. Benjamin has been free on a $50,000 bail bond but earned credit for 48 days against his term. He was ordered to surrender Aug. 28 to Maguire Correctional Facility.

Plea delayed in wife’s death case
By Michelle Durand
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
The Woodside man accused of staging his wife’s fatal shooting to look like a suicide in hopes of cashing in on a hefty life insurance policy is still delaying a plea while he ﬁnalizes who will represent him in the potentially capital murder trial. Pooroushasb “Peter” Parineh, 64, could face the death penalty if convicted of murder for ﬁnancial gain in the April 13 death of his 56year-old wife, Parima. Parineh has appeared in court several times since his arrest last month, but three separate attorneys have stated they are only making special appearances on his behalf while financing is solidified. If Parineh cannot afford his own attorney, the court will appoint one for him. If prosecutors seek the death
penalty, Parineh will be entitled to two lawyers. Peter Parineh called 911 April 13 to report ﬁnding his wife dead in a bedroom of their multi-million home on Fox Hill. He told authorities he believed his wife had killed herself. Pooroushasb Within days, however, authorities say they quesParineh tioned the story — doubt compounded by multiple shots to Parima Parineh, substantial debt including the home being in foreclosure and life insurance policies rumored to be $20 million. The insurance policy’s suicide exclusion period had passed, making Parineh eligible for a payout if his wife was found to have indeed killed herself. Defense attorney Paula Canny,
who appeared on behalf of Parineh at two previous court appearances, has said he is not listed as a beneﬁciary on any of the policies and is “heartbroken” by the loss. Sheriff’s deputies arrested Parineh June 17 in Sunnyvale and he is being held without bail. The Parinehs, who had been married a long time, lived at the home with a grown son and daughter. Another child lives elsewhere. All said they were not home at the time of the shooting. By the time emergency responders found Parineh, she had been dead for at least “some hours,” according to Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Man arrested for attempted carjackings
A man was arrested early yesterday morning after attempting to carjack a Maserati and then a motorcycle in the area of Woodside and Middleﬁeld roads before 8 a.m. yesterday, according to Redwood City police. Christopher Bose, 37, was booked into county jail for two counts of attempted carjacking and hit and run, according to police. Bose pulled up to the driver of the Maserati at a red light, exited his car and demanded the victim get out of the car. The victim ignored the suspect’s demand and drove away but Bose followed the car and deliberately collided with the Maserati, according to police. Bose then lost control of his own vehicle and crashed into a telephone pole. Bose exited his car and ran to the intersection of Bay Road and Charter Street and then knocked over a motorcyclist. Bose attempted to take the motorcycle but its driver fought back, according to police. Two plainclothes Redwood City police detectives observed the ﬁght and apprehended Bose as he tried to ﬂee the scene, according to police. Anyone with information regarding this crime is encouraged to contact
police at 780-7100.

Redwood City company gets CMP contract
PORTLAND, Maine — Central Maine Power, the state’s largest electric utility, has selected a California company to supply 620,000 so-called smart meters to be installed by early 2012, reducing costs for CMP and allowing consumers to monitor their power consumption, the companies said Thursday. Redwood City-based Trilliant Inc. said the nearly $200 million smart meter program will be funded by CMP with $96 million in federal stimulus money and matching funds from CMP’s corporate parent, Iberdrola USA. The electric meters will be connected to a high-speed secured network, enabling CMP to read the meters remotely and to eliminate meter readers. Customers would be able to monitor their power consumption in real time, and the technology could open the door to different pric-

ing plans down the road. “We have ambitious goals to improve our service and deliver value for customers through our smart grid network,” said Sara Burns, CMP president and chief executive ofﬁcer. Trilliant said it will provide software to manage the smart grid network. It’s partnering with General Electric and Landis+Gyr to provide the meters and with IBM to provide networking software, the company said. Workers will begin installing the meters this fall, ofﬁcials said. Smart meters are on the front line of plans for an advanced power grid because they can communicate with utilities and respond to constantly changing energy prices. All told, the U.S. Department of
Energy has awarded $230 million in federal stimulus funding — matched by the recipients — for smart meters in New England. For CMP, smart meters will bring an immediate cost savings by eliminating the need for meter readers, who drive 2 million miles a year to check meters, said CMP spokesman John Carroll. The system also could speed CMP’s storm response and eliminate the need for a site visit when service is turned on or off, he said. The smart meter plan was opposed by the International Brotherhood Electrical Workers because it calls for layoffs of 141 full- and part-time employees, including 85 meter readers.

PALO ALTO — As you might expect at a conference on the health dangers of sitting, most of the seats were empty. It was well attended, but the scientists and health experts who did gather Thursday at Stanford University were encouraged to get up from their chairs, stretch their legs, pace the room, even stand during discussions ranging from the risks of inactivity to technological solutions for reducing time on one’s behind. “Certainly the irony of having
everyone sit through a conference on the perils of sitting was not lost on us,” said Anne Friedlander, a consulting professor of human biology at Stanford and an organizer of the twoday conference entitled The Science of Sedentary Behavior. Friedlander opened the event by telling participants that they could monitor their sit-time on a timer displayed on a big screen behind the lectern. Alternative seating, including exercise balls, was also available. A campus walking tour would end the day. “It’s almost impossible to sit down for long periods when you know
what’s going on in your body while you’re sitting,” Friedlander said. Although much of the research into the health risks is preliminary, several studies suggest that people who spend prolonged periods on their behind are more likely to be overweight, have heart disease or even die. Inactivity, the studies also say, decreases circulation and the body starts shutting down on a metabolic level. The goal of the conference was to discuss the existing science on the topic and what research is still needed.

U.S.ruling could spark wave of CentAm asylum claims
GUATEMALA CITY — A U.S. federal court ruling this week could unleash a wave of political asylum claims from applicants who say being female and from Central America is reason enough to fear for their lives. The case itself concerns a technicality in an application by a Guatemalan woman, but activists say hundreds of thousands of women from throughout the region could use it to argue the United States should let them settle in El Norte. In Monday’s ruling, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ordered immigration judges to reconsider whether Guatemalan women constitute a “particular social group” that may be persecuted. Courts have granted such status to women who fear genital mutilation and victims of domestic abuse, but two lower courts had said Guatemalan women was too broad a category. Lawyers for Lesly Yajayra Perdomo — a Medicaid account executive for a health care company in Reno, Nevada — argued that a high murder rate for women in her native Guatemala means that deporting her would constitute “a death sentence.”
ATHERTON — Hundreds of unionized nurses wearing scrubs held a raucous rally Thursday outside the Silicon Valley home of GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman to protest her proposals for the state, which they say will hurt working people. Dozens of police ofﬁcers descended on the leafy streets surrounding Whitman’s two-story colonial home in Atherton. An estimated 1,100 protesters chanted “We’re going to beat back the Whitman attack” as an airplane paid for by the nurses union circled overhead, trailing a banner that read, “Nurses say no to Whitman.” The colorful display was part of an escalating feud between Whitman and California Nurses Association, the 85,000-member union that has trailed the former eBay CEO at her campaign events with an actress dressed as “Queen Meg.” The union says Whitman, a billionaire who has never before run for public ofﬁce, is trying to buy the governor’s race by spending tens of millions of dollars from her personal fortune. The “Queen Meg” character made an appearance Thursday, standing in front of Whitman’s white picket fence surrounded by two tuxedo-wearing bodyguards with sashes identifying them as “Goldman” and “Sachs.” It was a reference to Whitman’s time serving on the Goldman board, during which she was paid $475,000, and criticism that she beneﬁted from a questionable practice in which executives whose companies did business with Goldman were given preferential access to stocks. “Queen Meg” acted out a scene in which she pushed a woman dressed as California to the ground, saying she would eliminate public employees and

give tax breaks to the wealthy. It was a play on a recent report that Whitman agreed to a conﬁdential settlement while she was chief executive of eBay after she instigated an altercation with an employee. Whitman also has proposed eliminated 40,000 state government jobs. Jen Lendl, a 38-year-old nurse at Kaiser-Oakland, said Whitman’s proposals would roll back beneﬁts and pensions for public employees, who she described as hardworking. “She’s threatening the rights of nurses, patients, also attacking the teachers and ﬁreﬁghters. These are good people,” she said. Whitman was not home Thursday. Instead, she had a campaign event at a ﬂashlight-manufacturing company in the inland Southern California city of Ontario. Afterward, she told reporters that the rally outside her home was a distraction and that she would remain focused on one of her top priorities — developing ways to create private-sector jobs in California. “Everywhere I travel, and you could see it here today, people are very worried about jobs,” she said. “The thing on people’s minds is who has the best chance of ﬁxing the job climate in California?” Her campaign spokeswoman, Sarah Pompei, said Whitman is making an effort to describe her positions directly to nurses. Whitman has mailed letters and ﬂiers to nurses’ homes, urging them not to believe their Democratically aligned union leaders. She says she supports the nurses’ signature issue, a state law that requires one nurse for every ﬁve patients, and does not believe all nurses support the union’s antics.
SACRAMENTO — In 1965, California lawmakers named serpentine the state rock because it symbolized the Gold Rush years and contained a mineral being put to myriad industrial uses. Nearly half a century later, attitudes toward that mineral — asbestos — have changed, and one state lawmaker wants serpentine stripped of its status. Health authorities say asbestos, which is no longer mined in the U.S., can cause an incurable cancer called mesothelioma as well as other diseases when its ﬁbers are inhaled. “This is a question of health and public awareness,” said Democratic state Sen. Gloria Romero of Los Angeles, who proposed the bill. “We know that California has the highest rates of mesothelioma deaths in the nation and we don’t think it’s appropriate to be celebrating as the state rock something which contains asbestos.”
$5M approved to design Golden Gate suicide barrier
SAN FRANCISCO — Plans to build a suicide barrier on the Golden Gate Bridge are moving ahead. A committee of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, signed off on $5 million in federal funding on Wednesday to design the barrier. The full commission is expected to give its approval later in the month. Golden Gate Bridge ofﬁcials voted overwhelmingly two years ago in favor of hanging a stainless steel net from the sides of the world-famous span in an effort to stop people from jumping to their deaths. The barrier would cost $45 million. Bridge ofﬁcials are seeking federal, state and private funding for the project.
Fiorina opposes Wall Street overhaul legislation
By Judy Lin
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SACRAMENTO — Republican U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina says she would have voted against the ﬁnancial regulation bill approved Thursday by Congress. The former Hewlett-Packard Co. CEO says the legislation does not solve the
problems that caused the nation’s ﬁnancial meltdown. She says the bill creates a vast new consumer-protection bureaucracy without understanding why more than 20 existing regulatory agen-
cies failed. Fiorina was in the state capital Thursday to launch a campaign coalition aimed at generating support from AsianAmericans. Her opponent, Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, described the ﬁnancial overhaul bill as landmark legislation that will hold ﬁnancial ﬁrms responsible for their costly mistakes.
Fresh Express recalling some of its bagged lettuce
SALINAS — Some of the bagged lettuce produced by Salinas-based Fresh Express is being recalled because of concerns of possible E. coli contamination. The company and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration say the voluntary recall involves Fresh Express Romaine salads with expired “use-by” dates of July 8 - 12 and an “S” in the Product Code.

• U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, introduced the Protecting Homeowners’ Credit History Act yesterday to shield homeowner credit ratings from adverse reports after the homeowner has a mortgage modiﬁed by a lender. Currently, an on-time modiﬁed loan payment made by a homeowner can be treated as delinquent or incomplete by the very bank or servicer that approved the modiﬁcation. The Protecting Homeowners’ Credit History Act would abolish the practice by preventing banks and servicers from reporting on-time modiﬁed loan payments as delinquent and by prohibiting a credit reporting bureau from including such adverse information in a person’s credit report.
Immigration law hearing ends with no ruling
PHOENIX — Arizona’s impending immigration law went before a federal judge for the ﬁrst time Thursday, and attorneys for both sides sparred over who had the right to enforce immigration law: local ofﬁcials or the federal government. U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton didn’t rule on whether to block the law from taking effect July 29, or whether to dismiss the lawsuit, one of seven. Hearings in two other lawsuits — including one ﬁled by the federal government — are set for July 22, and the judge has been careful to give no hints on who she might favor. At stake is more than just who can detain illegal immigrants within U.S. borders. If Bolton rules in Arizona’s favor, it opens the door to states taking on issues that have long been the responsibility of the federal government. John Bouma, an attorney representing the state, argued Arizona shouldn’t have to suffer from the country’s broken immigration system when it has 15,000 police ofﬁcers who can arrest illegal immigrants. “Just leaving it in the status quo leaves the state of Arizona in economic harm, in irreparable harm, every day,” Bouma said, noting the state’s steep education and health care costs for illegal immigrants. But allowing Arizona to carry out its

More than 25,000 people have donated more than $1.2 million to a fund established in May to help the state pay to defend the law, Gov. Jan Brewer’s ofﬁce said Thursday. Salgado’s attorneys want the judge to block the law before it takes effect, saying it would require an ofﬁcer to use race as a primary factor in deciding how to enforce it. Supporters insist that ofﬁcers would not be allowed to question someone based solely on their race.
Big money flows into state congressional races
By Robin Hindrey
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SACRAMENTO — Money is pouring in to some of California’s most hotly contested congressional contests, according to campaign finance reports released Thursday. The latest data show Democratic challengers out-raising their Republican opponents last quarter in at least two races. In the 3rd Congressional District near Sacramento, Elk Grove physician Ami Bera raised nearly $340,000 between April 1 and June 30, the end of the most
recent reporting period. He is challenging four-term Republican Rep. Dan Lungren, who raised $266,000. This is the fifth straight quarter Bera has outpaced Lungren in campaign fundraising, and he maintains a lead of more than $330,000 in cash on hand. “We’re showing real momentum, and what’s more, the majority of the donations came from individual residents in this region,” Bera said Thursday. In Riverside County’s 45th District, Palm Springs Mayor Steve Pougnet maintained a slight fundraising edge over Republican Rep. Mary Bono Mack last quarter, although Bono Mack had
significantly more cash on hand. Pougnet netted just over $400,000 in new contributions, about $2,000 more than Bono Mack. Bono Mack campaign manager Ryan Mahoney confirmed that over the past year, Pougnethas raised more than any of the congresswoman’s challengers since she was first elected in 1998. In Northern California’s 11th District, Republican David Harmer added $402,000 in donations last quarter. The fundraising tally for his opponent, two-term Democratic Rep. Jerry McNerney, was not available Thursday afternoon.

Oil stops spewing from Gulf Ship junked 200 years ago found
at ground zero
By Verena Dobnik
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW ORLEANS — The oil has stopped. For now. After 85 days and up to 184 million gallons, BP ﬁnally gained control over one of America’s biggest environmental catastrophes Thursday by placing a carefully ﬁtted cap over a runaway geyser that has been gushing crude into the Gulf of Mexico since early spring. Though a temporary ﬁx, the accomplishment was greeted with hope, high expectations — and, in many cases along the beleaguered coastline, disbelief. From one Gulf Coast resident came this: “Hallelujah.” And from another: “I got to see it to believe it.” If the cap holds, if the sea ﬂoor doesn’t crack and if the relief wells being prepared are completed successfully, this could be the beginning of the end for the spill. But that’s a lot of ifs, and no one was declaring any sort of victory beyond the moment. The oil stopped ﬂowing at 3:25 p.m. EDT when the last of three valves in the 75-ton cap was slowly throttled shut. That set off a 48-hour watch period in which — much like the hours immediately after a surgery — the patient was in stable, guarded condition and being watched REUTERS closely for complications.

NEW YORK — The ship was buried as junk two centuries ago — landfill to expand a bustling little island of commerce called Manhattan. When it re-emerged this week, surrounded by skyscrapers, it was an instant treasure that popped up from the mud near ground zero. A 32-foot piece of the vessel was found in soil 20 feet under street level, amid noisy bulldozers excavating a parking garage for the future World Trade Center. Near the site of so many grim finds — Sept. 11 victims’ remains, twisted steel — this discovery was as unexpected as it was thrilling. Historians say the ship, believed to date to the 1700s, was defunct by the time it was used around 1810 to extend the shores of lower Manhattan. “A ship is the summit of what you might find under the World Trade Center — it’s exciting!” said Molly McDonald, an archaeologist who first spotted two pieces of hewn, curved timber — part of the frame of the ship — peeking out of the muddy soil at dawn on Tuesday. By Thursday, she and three colleagues had dug up the hull from the pit where a section of the new trade center is being built. A steep, hanging ladder trembled with each step down into chaotic mounds of dirt, dwarfed all around by Manhattan skyscrapers rising into the July sun. People sank in the mud as they walked and grasped pieces of the historic wood for support — touching the centuries-old ship that may once have sailed the Caribbean, according to marine historian Norman Brower, who examined it Thursday. “It smells like low tide, this muck,” said McDonald as she stood on the weathered planks, sniffing the dank odor that hovered over them in the hot summer morning. The ship harbors many mysteries still to be solved: “Where was it built? How was it used? Why was it sunk?”

Wall Street crackdown,consumer guards,are passed
WASHINGTON — Congress on Thursday passed the stiffest restrictions on banks and Wall Street since the Great Depression, clamping down on lending practices and expanding consumer protections to prevent a repeat of the 2008 meltdown that knocked the economy to its knees. A year in the making and 22 months after the collapse of Lehman Brothers triggered a worldwide panic in credit and other markets, the bill cleared its ﬁnal hurdle with a 60-39 Senate vote. It now goes to the White House for President Barack Obama’s signature, expected as early as Wednesday. The law will give the government new powers to break up companies that threaten the economy, create a new agency to guard consumers in their ﬁnancial transactions and shine a light into shadow ﬁnancial markets that escaped the oversight of regulators. The vote came on the same day that Goldman Sachs & Co. agreed to pay a record $550 million to settle charges that it misled buyers of mortgagerelated investments. From storefront payday lenders to the biggest banking and investment houses on Wall Street, few players in the ﬁnancial world are immune to the bill’s reach. Consumer and investor transactions, whether simple debit card swipes or the most complex securities trades, face new safeguards or restrictions. A powerful council of regulators would be on the lookout for risks across the ﬁnance system. Large, failing ﬁnancial institutions would be liquidated and the costs assessed on their surviving peers. The Federal Reserve is getting new powers while falling under greater congressional scrutiny. “I’m about to sign Wall Street reform into law, to protect consumers and lay the foundation for a stronger and safer ﬁnancial system, one that is innovative, creative, competitive and far less prone to panic and collapse,” Obama said. “Unless your business model depends on cutting corners or bilking your customers, you have nothing to fear.” Republicans said the bill is a vast federal overreach that will drive ﬁnancial-sector jobs overseas.

‘Since when did anyone who decides to eat a deep-fried Twinkie or patched together mound of M&Ms give a ﬂying ﬁg that the oil is was cooked in is healthier?’
ﬁbers are inhaled, but I can’t imagine why or how someone would go about inhaling enough ground-up serpentine dust to cause harm — aside from, of course, the obvious oddity of deciding somehow to embark on such a venture. Would anyone? And is there any proof that knocking serpentine off its pedestal would cause its popularity to drop and prompt the populace to somehow avoid it? Is there a point to this debate whatsoever? No. No. And no. I have an idea for Romero. Why don’t you step down from your Senate seat and conduct an experiment in which you break up piles of serpentine with a sledgehammer every day for 10 years without a dust mask, then test yourself to see if you are OK. Then we can know once and for all if there is any potential for harm in such a task and if there is any worth in such a discussion. Or you could simply snap out of your serpentine stupor and get to work on the budget. In the midst of this mind-numbingly exasperating debate about the state rock, state health ofﬁcials have decided to descend on the state fair to shake down vendors who may be cooking fair fare in trans fat. For those of you nursing hangovers Jan. 1 or otherwise too busy to notice — strict new rules on trans fat went into effect at the beginning of the year. Seems the out-of-state vendors at the state fair may also not have been privy to the new rules and went about their business of dropping battered up Twinkies and other delights into oil that does not meet the new standards. And lo and behold, that’s when state health ofﬁcials decided to strike fear and loathing into the hearts of the purveyors of fried foods to make sure it was healthy. Since when did anyone who decides to eat a deep-fried Twinkie or patched together mound of M&Ms give a ﬂying ﬁg that the oil is was cooked in is healthier? So here we are on day 23 of the

Eureka! I have found stupidity!
t’s been more than three weeks since the state Legislature missed its budget deadline costing California and its residents more than $50 million a day. And now, a debate is raging in the capitol about, as the New York Times so aptly phrased it, defrocking the state rock. For those of you who weren’t paying attention that day in grade school, the state rock is serpentine and it is found in abundance in the Sierra Nevada foothills. It’s green and blue and shiny and may have traces of asbestos in it as some rocks are prone to do. In response, state Sen. Gloria Romero, D-Los Angeles, conjured up legislation that would knock the rock off its throne as the state’s representative in the mineral world and leave the valley quail, the grizzly bear and the poppy on their own. Not every state has an ofﬁcial rock, in fact, California was the ﬁrst state to make such a connotation in 1965. But Romero’s plan would leave the state without a lithologic emblem which was so named because it symbolized the state’s Gold Rush years and was put to many uses. Now, it mainly sits on the sides of mountains. Asbestos can cause cancer when its

state’s missed budget deadline. We are facing a $19 billion deﬁcit, workers are ﬁghting over furloughs and the possibility of making minimum wage and cities and counties are wondering when the second budget shoe will drop so they can ﬁll in the red sides of their books. And what are state ofﬁcials doing? Considering whether we should drop the state rock and checking what type of oil the baddest of the bad when it comes to heart health is dropped. The absurdity is enough to give the average Californian a coronary.

Assistance for seniors
Editor, Thanks for your compassionate report on Joe Sanchez’s complaint to the San Mateo City Council regarding the impending sewer rate increase (“Stink raised over sewer rates” in the July 6 edition of the Daily Journal). I was present the evening Mr. Sanchez made his eloquent plea to the council. There are many senior citizens in San Mateo who are struggling to get by on a retirement income that has not kept pace with the cost of living. Sometimes they are not aware of services and beneﬁts that can provide immediate help. Sometimes their pride keeps them from asking where they can ﬁnd the needed relief or assistance. Aging adults deserve attention and encouragement. As relatives, neighbors, friends or as their government, we all owe it to these good people to help them ﬁnd ways to ease their burdens. Our city staff promptly contacted Mr. Sanchez and provided some current information regarding his issues. That follow-up is to be commended. the heavy ﬁne he faces a possible a point on his trafﬁc record and a sure 20 to 30 percent increase in auto insurance. As an attorney, I regularly see police ofﬁcers in trafﬁc court display camera generated photos supplied to them by a for-proﬁt company , as “infallible proof” that a motorist has run a red light. When a ticket is issued in person by an ofﬁcer appearing in court, he can be confronted and cross examined. You cannot cross-examine a camera. An incensed public is now challenging these campaigns to balance the budget on the backs the motorists. As well they should. that. I don’t care what name they use as it all boils down to more money being robbed from those who can least afford it. I suggest they get rid of the myriad of commisions and commitees and study economics, not government voodoo economics, but true economics. I have never seen such a bunch of incompetent clowns before. Politicians are supposed to be public servants, but as a whole, it appears they are more public servicers. Everytime they get together, the public gets serviced whether we want to or not.

Open letter from a taxpayer
Editor, If it is going to cost BART $4 billion to build an 11-mile extension to Livermore, how can $43 billion be considered a realistic cost estimate for the 500-mile high-speed rail system? The BART extension from Dublin to Livermore is being made to an existing system with known speciﬁcations. The highspeed rail plan doesn’t specify anything. Please stop this boondoggle project. The bankrupt state of California with the worst schools in the country should not pour any more money into the black hole of debt that is high-speed rail.
‘Public transportation needs’
Editor, I am in ﬁrm support of City/County Association of Government’s proposal to place the ballot measure adding a $10 tariff to drivers licenses (“Vehicle fee on November ballot” in the July 10 edition of the Daily Journal). I would like to see a full 50 percent of this user fee dedicated entirely to public mass transportation operations budgets because this stepchild of transit funding is on the brink of collapse. While we righteously give lip-service to sustainability, we continue to expand our freeways to accommodate more vehicular trafﬁc, only to discourage any behavioral change that might occur if we put our money toward building and operating convenient and reliable mass transit. If bus and train service is allowed to ﬂounder and collapse, our county will suffer not only job loss for drivers, engineers and conductors, but also for those thousands who do not own cars and rely on public transit to get them to work. Those riders who do own cars will be forced to return our ever-clogged roadways. Car operation is not an entitlement nor a right, but is a privilege that comes with individual respon-
Art shows in the County Center
Editor, The Peninsula Arts Council has been responsible for curating and installing exhibitions in the County Government Center galleries in Redwood City since January of 2003. On June 30, 2010, that era came to an end when the paintings of Johathan Wessel of Caldwell Gallery and the Burlingame Art Society of Community Gallery were returned to the artists by pro bono curators Ruth Waters and Beate Amler. The exhibition of sculpture by Ellen Lowenstein and Leon Kortenkamp in the Rotunda Gallery at 555 County Center will remain in place through Oct. 31. The Rotunda Gallery has been curated by the Peninsula Sculptors’ Guild, under the auspices of the Peninsula Arts Council for four years. These exhibition spaces will now be curated by members of the San Mateo County Arts Commission. For information on current and future shows, you may contact 650-599-1393.

Public is right to challenge red-light cameras
Editor, Outraged citizens are revolting against being tried and convicted by red-light cameras. Now cities relying on these automated money-producing machines are themselves facing an unexpected red light, an outraged citizenry. The cities’ mantra is, “these cameras are for safety and not to make money.” Would you expect them to say otherwise? An average $450 ﬁne per ticket multiplied by a growing number of cameras helps make up their chronic budget shortfall . For the hapless motorist the picture is not so rosy. In addition to

disappointing economic reports had sent the Dow Jones industrial average down nearly 100 points in late trading. The Dow scrambled back to a loss of just 7 by the close. Broader indexes were narrowly mixed. Goldman was trading at about $140 a share when word of the pending announcement came. The stock then soared to close at $145.22, up $6.16, and shot up to $153.45 in after-hours trading. The company’s stock has been pounded by the SEC case. It closed at $183.81 on April 15, the day before the charges, and plunged 12.6 percent the day they were announced. By the time it reached its closing low of $131.08 on July 2, the stock had fallen nearly 29 percent. Investors viewed Goldman’s settlement as a buying opportunity for a stock that has been hammered since the SEC ﬁled charges. “The SEC case is now behind Goldman as far as investors are concerned,” said independent market analyst Edward Yardeni said, adding that the manageable size of the settlement added to the demand for the
NEW YORK — Investors gave the stock market a big last-hour turnaround on just the anticipation of Goldman Sachs settling the government’s civil fraud charges. As word spread that the Securities and Exchange Commission had scheduled a late-afternoon announcement, investors began buying on the belief that the government and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. had settled the charges that grew out of the sale of securities based on risky mortgages. The $550 million settlement was announced less than an hour after trading ended. Goldman agreed to pay ﬁnes of $300 million, the largest ﬁne against a ﬁnancial company in SEC history, and $250 million to compensate investors who lost money on the securities. The deal also requires Goldman to review how it sells complex ﬁnancial mortgage investments. The settlement lifts uncertainty that has hovered around Goldman since the charges were announced April 16. Expectations of a deal were enough to make traders temporarily set aside concerns about the economy. A series of
company’s shares. “This ﬁne is a bargain for Goldman,” Yardeni said. Goldman’s problems have been a pall on other ﬁnancial companies and in turn, the overall market. So stocks overall beneﬁted Thursday from news of a deal. A little more uncertainty was lifted from the market late in the day, when the Senate passed and sent to President Barack Obama the ﬁnancial regulation bill. However, because regulations that will implement the bill’s provisions have yet to be written, traders were still wary. Analysts said that likely contributed to the market’s dip right before word of an SEC announcement. Bill Strazzullo, partner and chief market strategist for Bell Curve Trading in Boston, noted that JPMorgan Chase & Co. CEO Jamie Dimon earlier in the day said it wasn’t possible to estimate the impact of the bill on his company’s proﬁts. “Maybe the reality of it is ﬁnally upon us,” Strazzullo said. The Dow fell 7.41, or 0.07 percent, to 10,359.31. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 1.31, or 0.1 percent, to 1,096.48, while the Nasdaq composite index fell 0.76, or 0.03 percent, to 2,249.08.
Google’s 2Q earnings rise,but miss target
By Michael Liedtke

Google 2Q worries investors
THE BOTTOM LINE: Both Google’s second-quarter net income and revenue increased by 24 percent from the same time last year. The earnings totaled $1.84 billion,or $5.71 per share, while revenue hit $6.82 billion. NOT GOOD ENOUGH: The earnings missed analyst forecasts, something
developing products in other promising niches such as online video and mobile devices. To help achieve its goals, the company added nearly 1,200 employees in the second quarter to end June with more than 21,800 workers. Despite the rising expenses, Google’s net income rose at a fast clip as secondquarter revenue came in slightly above analysts’ forecasts. But the earnings growth wasn’t quite as robust as analysts had hoped, a factor that seemed to ampli-
SAN FRANCISCO — Google Inc.’s second-quarter earnings missed analysts’ target as higher expenses and the fallout from the European debt crisis dragged down the Internet search leader. The letdown announced Thursday stemmed from Google’s expanding payroll and a run-up in the U.S. dollar that has been driven by fears that the euro will crumble if governments in Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy default on their perilously high debts. The worries hurt Google because about one-third of the company’s revenue comes from Europe, and customer payments made with the euro translated into fewer dollars than a year ago. Even so, the currency squeeze wasn’t as severe as some analysts anticipated. Meanwhile, Google is spending more to maintain its commanding lead in Internet search while it also tries to diversify by
that rarely happens at Google. THE ISSUES: Google’s expenses jumped as the company brought in another 1,200 workers and invested in more technology.A stronger U.S.dollar also translated into less money coming in from Europe, one of the company’s biggest markets.
fy investor concerns already weighing on Google’s stock price. Google shares fell $19.56, or nearly 4 percent, in extended trading Thursday after the release of results. Earlier, the company ﬁnished the regular session at $494.02, up $2.68. Although Google remains the Internet’s most proﬁtable company, investors have been fretting about signs of decelerating growth amid stiffer competition from Apple Inc., Facebook and Microsoft Corp.
Apple to speak on iPhone 4 troubles
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Apple Inc. will hold a press conference on Friday to discuss the latest iPhone model amid complaints about its antenna and Consumer Reports magazine’s refusal to endorse it until the problems get ﬁxed. Apple would not provide details on the nature of the event at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., other than to say it will involve the iPhone 4. On Monday, Consumer Reports said careful testing has conﬁrmed user reports that holding
the phone over a particular spot drastically reduces the signal strength it receives. Covering the spot with duct tape or a case alleviates the problem. Apple hasn’t commented on Consumer Reports’ ﬁnding yet. Company watchers are speculating that the company may give iPhone buyers its “Bumper” case, which normally costs $29. The phone went on sale three weeks ago and outsold previous iPhone launches in its ﬁrst three days, with 1.7 million units sold. Complaints about the signal strength soon followed.
JPMorgan earns $4.8 billion in second quarter
NEW YORK — JPMorgan Chase & Co. said Thursday its second-quarter net income soared 77 percent to $4.8 billion as a slowdown in losses from failed loans helped offset a difﬁcult spring in trading and investment banking. The strong results offered hope that loan losses at the nation’s big banks may have peaked in the ﬁrst half of 2010, a critical step before banks can become stronger and boost lending to consumers and small businesses. JPMorgan Chase, the ﬁrst of the big banks to report earnings for the April-June period, easily surpassed analysts’ expectations as it
earned $1.09 a share, up 28 cents a share from a year earlier.

Porsche’s grand experiment — a ﬁrst-ever Porsche sedan styled in an elongated, yet familiar, sports car-looking body — is doing well, even in a U.S. economy that’s struggling to recover. No doubt, buyers of the 2010 Porsche Panamera, whose starting retail price is $90,775, are well insulated from the economic turmoil — and that’s before they are encased in the Panamera’s 4,000-pound mass, 16 feet of metal from bumper to bumper. Only about 4,700 of these rare cars have been sold in the United States so far, and the drive in a Panamera is special. The V-8 engines deliver awesome power and acceleration so quick, a driver can race up to other cars in trafﬁc in a heartbeat. At the same time, the Panamera’s interior appointments can be sumptuous and the array of driver-controlled buttons for seats, suspension settings and more, overwhelming. Throughout, the heaviness of this extra-long vehicle serves as a constant reminder that this isn’t a usual Porsche. Launched in this country in October last year, the Panamera has been available in three levels, all with V-8s. The base model, with 400-horsepower V-8, is rear-wheel drive, while the mid-level 2010 Panamera 4S, has the 400-horsepower V-8 plus all-wheel drive and a starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price, including destination charge, of $94,775. The top 2010 Panamera Turbo comes with a 500-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V-8, all-wheel drive and a starting retail price of $133,575. A new entry model with 300-horsepower V-6 is planned for introduction shortly, and it will carry a starting retail price of around $75,000. Panamera competitors include other high-performance, luxury sedans such as the 2010 Mercedes-Benz CLS550, which has a 382-horsepower V-8, rear-wheel drive and a $74,575 starting retail price tag. The size and styling of the test 2010 Panamera 4S made onlookers do doubletakes. From the front, the car looked like a two-seat 911, but with a longer hood that’s needed to accommodate the front-mounted V-8. It’s only when people started to take in the full side view of the car — seeing the four doors instead of the 911’s two doors and the extra length — that it began to sink in that this was a different Porsche. Driving the Panamera, I had to adjust, too. I was accustomed to slipping into tight parking spaces with the Porsche 911s I had tested. But the Panamera is a foot wider, outside mirrors included. It also has long doors, so I had to skip compact-sized parking spots and seek wider and longer spots instead. The Panamera has seats for four lucky riders who travel in style. Seat cushions are thick, supportive and comfortable for long drives, even in the back seat. And the optional luxor beige

Toyota says acceleration probe far from finished
By Dan Strumpf
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Toyota is “not anywhere near close” to drawing any ﬁrm conclusions from its probe of unintended acceleration reports and doesn’t plan to disclose its ﬁndings until the government ﬁnishes its own investigation, a company spokesman said Thursday. Toyota Motor Corp. engineers have investigated more than 2,000 reports of surging cars. Several government agencies, including NASA and the Transportation Department, are conducting their own probes into complaints of unintended acceleration as well, but their ﬁndings aren’t due until as late as next year. “It’s important to allow others ... to complete their investigations without our ﬁndings providing any sort of inﬂuence,” Michels said. Earlier this week, The Wall Street Journal, citing anonymous sources, reported that the government had analyzed dozens of data recorders in Toyota vehicles involved in crashes blamed on unintended acceleration and found the throttles were open and the brakes were not engaged.
REUTERS FILE PHOTO
A 2008 Toyota Prius brakes in a stadium parking lot following Toyota's announcement of preliminary ﬁndings regarding their investigation of an unintended acceleration incident involving a 2008 Prius.
That suggests drivers were to blame, stepping on the gas pedal when they intended to step on the brakes. Michels said Toyota has found a number of causes for unintended acceleration among the complaints it has investigated so far, including misplaced ﬂoormats or stacked ﬂoor mats and sticky pedals. Among complaints where the driver said the brake pedal was depressed, driver error was to blame in most cases, he said. The automaker hasn’t found evidence that electronics are to blame, he said. The government on Wednesday said it hasn’t reached any conclu-
sions about whether Toyota drivers may be to blame for their vehicles suddenly accelerating. NHTSA engineers and NASA scientists have been looking into cases of sudden acceleration in Toyotas and studying electronics in cars and trucks. Their investigation is expected to be completed in the fall. In addition, the National Academy of Sciences is conducting a broader review of unintended acceleration in cars and trucks across the entire auto industry. The panel is expected to report its ﬁndings in the fall of 2011. Toyota has recalled more than 8.5 million vehicles worldwide to address the possibility of unintended acceleration. It is ﬁxing faulty ﬂoormats and sticky gas pedals in the cars and trucks. The government has said unintended acceleration in Toyota vehicles may be tied to 93 deaths over the last decade and has ﬁned Toyota $16.4 million for failing to promptly notify the government about defective gas pedals among its vehicles. Congress is weighing an overhaul of auto safety laws in the aftermath of the Toyota recalls.

full leather interior looked and felt rich in the test car. The only problem came in certain sunlight conditions, when the light-colored leather swathed on the dashboard reflected up to the windshield, creating glare. The same situation occurred at the parcel shelf behind the rear seats, because it, too, had the light color and would reﬂect up to the rear window. The 4.8-liter, double overhead cam V8 in the Panamera 4S was mated to a dual-clutch, seven-speed transmission that operates normally as an automatic but can be shifted manually sans clutch pedal. Torque peaks at 369 foot-pounds at a commendable 3,500 rpm, which provided good get up and go in nearly all driving situations in the test car. I had to watch the pressure I put on the accelerator, because the accelerator in the test car needed more than a light touch.
Shifts could be noticeable in both slow-speed, easygoing travel as well as aggressive driving. And the brakes in the test car, with more than 4,000 miles, took some getting used to because braking power didn’t come on linearly. Rather, there was a sense of artiﬁciality in the brake feel and brakes would grab, rather than smoothly slow the car at times. For a test car that topped out at more than $100,000, the Panamera 4S seemed to be showing some wear and tear early. For example, the 19-inch tires were worn in areas. Everyone rides low to the pavement in the Panamera, so views out the front are limited to the back ends of taller vehicles. But once the trafﬁc is behind the Panamera and roads open up, the car moves purposefully and ﬂawlessly, with the body mass well-controlled, in turns and on twisty roads. Also, the test car’s steering was precise, but not twitchy. The interior was quite quiet, unless the car was accelerating hard, and then deep V-8 sounds came to the fore.
Fuel economy is poor. The all-wheel drive test model was rated at 16 miles per gallon in city driving and 24 mpg on the highway. This is worse than many sport utility vehicles. The Panamera has a large 26.4-gallon gasoline tank, allowing it to travel more than 400 miles before needing a ﬁllup. Premium fuel is required. The cargo area of 15.7 cubic feet expands to 44.6 cubic feet if the back seats are folded down. The Panamera comes with a full complement of safety equipment, including antilock brakes, curtain air bags and electronic stability control. But some driving aides, such as parking sensors, are options. In the spring, more than 3,100 Panameras were recalled because their safety belt locking mechanism might not work if a front seat was adjusted “towards an extreme position” at the time of a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Surprising new Warriors owners
By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OAKLAND — Golden State Warriors owner Chris Cohan reached an agreement Thursday to sell the franchise for a record $450 million to Boston Celtics minority partner Joe Lacob and Mandalay Entertainment CEO Peter Guber. “I am incredibly excited to have the opportunity to be the next steward of this storied NBA franchise. This is my dream come true,” said Lacob, who is also the managing partner with
Kleiner Perkins Cauﬁeld & Byers. “Peter and I intend to do what we do best — innovating and building. It is our passion to return the Warriors to Joe Lacob greatness and build nothing short of a championship organization that will make all of us in the Bay Area proud.” Lacob and Guber beat out three
other ﬁnalists, including Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, who had been considered the favorite to buy the team from Cohan. Ellison has a personal Peter Guber fortune of $28 billion, according to an annual survey by Forbes magazine, and is the sixth-richest man in the world. He had been courted by Warriors
fans at a game earlier this year to buy the struggling franchise, which has made the playoffs only once in the past 16 seasons. Ellison said in a Larry Ellison statement that he was surprised he did not win because he made the biggest offer. “Although I was the highest bidder, Chris Cohan decided to sell to some-
one else,” he said. “In my experience this is a bit unusual. Nonetheless, I wish the Warriors and their fans nothing but success under their new ownership.” Sal Galatioto, the president of Galatioto Sports Partners, which advised Cohan on the sale, said there was a handshake agreement with Lacob and Guber agreed to about two weeks ago. The team had four offers of at least $400 million at the time of the deadline.

Colt title game set
South City to play Foster City after beating San Bruno 12-2

Summer has been very busy
or sports writers who primarily cover the high school and small college beat, the summer is usually the most boring time of the year. School is out, and to make matters worse, mid-July is usually the slowest time on the pro sports calendar. They don’t call it the dog days of summer for nothing, and in most years the adage holds true. Thankfully, this is not one of those years. From college football realignment to Lance Armstrong cracking at the Tour de France to the World Cup — I can still hear the “Wahhhhh” sound of the vuvuzelas ringing in my ears, please STOP! — to “The Decision,” aka the LeBron James sweepstakes, there’s been enough actionpacked material in the last couple of months to last two years. Whew, what a summer! And the best thing is it’s not over yet. The British Open started Thursday and always holds intrigue for the simple fact that its courses look so different than anything you ever see in the states, and the Warriors just got sold — ﬁnally! — to a new ownership group. Before you know it baseball will be in a frenzy as the trade deadline comes and goes, with the Giants — hopefully? — looking to acquire the big bat they so desperately need to make a legitimate playoff push.

Before the Peninsula Colt League Section tournament started, it was clear the Foster City and South San Francisco All-Star teams were the favorites to meet for the championship. Now it’s going to happen. South San Francisco held up its end of the bargain after whipping San Bruno 12-2 in an elimination game on Thursday at Washington Park. The contest ended with one out in the bottom of the sixth inning due to the 10-run mercy rule. Foster City and South San Francisco play today at 5 p.m. at the same venue for the title. If South San Francisco wins, the teams will play approximately 30 minutes afterwards in a winner-take-all contest. Foster City must be beaten twice, having gained the upper hand after beating the Indians 9-4 in Wednesday’s winner’s bracket semiﬁnal. “We’re ready to play two,” Indians manager Joe Freitas said. “Foster City was deﬁnitely the better team (Wednesday); now we’ll see how we match up with them. I feel conﬁdent.” The South City players gave plenty of reasons for Freitas to feel conﬁdent. They dismantled a solid San Bruno squad with solid pitching and a potent lineup that battered San Bruno for 15 hits. The game was close for a while until the Indians broke things open with a six-run ﬁfth inning. They led 5-2 entering the stanza before ripping off six hits in the frame, with Greg Bildhauer ﬁnishing off the outburst with a two-run double to make it 11-2. One inning later, South San Francisco sent everyone home early when Brandon Low — who led off the inning with a double — scored with one out on a double from Steve Pastora. The Indians don’t have problems scoring. Since forming the All-Star team three weeks ago, they’ve scored at least three runs in each

Low scores the norm at first round of British Open
By Doug Ferguson

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — In the 137 years since the British Open ﬁrst came to St. Andrews, the Old Course rarely has been such a pushover. Rarer still was the score Rory McIlroy delivered. Whether it was the luck of the draw or his tantalizing talent really
didn’t matter. In conditions so calm that not a hair on his considerable mop was out of place, McIlroy set off on an incredible run Rory McIlroy into the record book Thursday with a 9-under 63 that gave him a
two-shot lead. “Going out there this morning with no wind, you’re never going to get St. Andrews playing any easier,” McIlroy said. John Daly It was just as easy for John Daly, a former cham-
pion at St. Andrews and now the ultimate long shot. He first energized the gallery by bashing tee shots and making enough Tiger Woods birdies for a 66, matching his best score in the British Open.
And it was just as easy for Tiger Woods, who ran off three straight birdies late in his round for a 67. “The old lady had no clothes on today,” Tom Watson said after a 73. There were 45 rounds in the 60s, 73 players broke par and the average score was under par — 71.75. No one took advantage like McIlroy, a 21-year-old from

Lincecum shuts down Mets

lowing a seven-game losing streak. The Mets’ only real threat against Lincecum came in the ﬁfth inning when Josh Thole hit a line drive through the box that glanced off Lincecum’s back for a single. That put Tim Lincecum runners on ﬁrst and second with no outs. But Lincecum retired the next three hitters, getting Angel Pagan on a ﬂyout to right ﬁeld with runners on second and third to escape the jam. Lincecum struck out ﬁve and walked one in the 110-pitch outing. He now has had two straight strong starts after a rare pair of rough outings against Boston and Colorado. The Mets were hoping for a big offensive boost this game with the return of ﬁve-time AllStar Carlos Beltran to the lineup. Beltran had been out since undergoing offseason surgery on his right knee. He batted cleanup and played center ﬁeld, but was caught stealing after his
SAN FRANCISCO — Tim Lincecum pitched a six-hitter for his fourth career shutout and Pablo Sandoval hit an RBI double to help the San Francisco Giants open the second half of the season with a 2-0 victory over the New York Mets on Thursday night. Lincecum (10-4) is coming off his third straight trip to the All-Star game, but was able to start the ﬁrst game after the break because he was not used in Tuesday night’s game in Anaheim. The Giants fans who may have been disappointed not to see their two-time Cy Young winner appear in the All-Star game were more than happy to see him dominate in a game that counts in the standings for the Giants. They cheered loudly when he was sent to bat in the bottom of the eighth inning and he responded by slapping a single to left ﬁeld. He then ﬁnished the Mets off on the mound with a perfect ninth for his ﬁrst shutout since throwing a two-hitter against St. Louis on June 29, 2009. San Francisco has won eight of 10 games fol-
only hit in the game. The Mets managed just ﬁve other hits off Lincecum in the opener of an 11-game road trip. Lincecum needed to be sharp in this game as the Giants struggled to generate much offense against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (6-3). Dickey allowed just ﬁve hits in seven innings and was only really threatened in the second. Buster Posey led off that inning with a single and advanced to third on a groundout and wild pitch. Sandoval then lined a ball off the brick archways in right ﬁeld so hard that it rolled almost to center ﬁeld before Pagan chased it down. The Giants managed nothing else against Dickey, but managed to win for just the third time in 29 games this season when they scored two or fewer runs. They added a run in the eighth on an RBI ﬁelder’s choice by Posey. NOTES: Mets All-Star SS Jose Reyes missed the game with a sore right side. ... The Mets had won three of four games started by Lincecum. ... The Giants improved to 3-0 this season against knuckleballers, having beaten Charlie Haeger of the Los Angeles Dodgers in April and Boston’s Tim Wakeﬁeld last month. ... San Francisco SS

Once powerful A’s struggle to go deep
By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OAKLAND — From the days of Reggie Jackson in the 1970s to the Bash Brothers of the 1980s to the slugging beer-league style teams that were so successful a decade ago, power has often been a big component of the Oakland Athletics’ success. It’s that long ball power that has been the biggest missing ingredient in a ﬁrst half of the season that had moments of perfection that were too infrequent for any sustained success. “We can’t be waiting around for guys to hit home runs to win games,” slugger Jack Cust
said. “Everybody hits more home runs than us.” That’s pretty much been the case so far this season. The A’s come out of the All-Star break ties with Seattle and Houston for the fewest home runs in all of baseball with 57. The A’s are on pace for 104 home runs this season — the fewest in a full season for the franchise since 1978. In fact, the A’s are in danger of failing to reach 100 home runs for the ﬁrst time since the franchise’s inaugural season in Oakland in 1968. Jackson had 37 home runs at the All-Star break the following season and the A’s have been one of the game’s best power-hitting
teams ever since. Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire teamed up in the late 1980s to give Oakland a feared offensive attack and players like Jason Giambi, Miguel Tejada, Frank Thomas, Matt Stairs and Nick Swisher continued the trend in recent years. But this year, catcher Kurt Suzuki is the only player in double digits in home runs with 10. The team went 23 games without homering more than once in a contest, the second longest such streak for the franchise in 21 years. Oakland’s usual No. 3 hitter Ryan Sweeney has gone 54 games without going deep. First baseman Daric Barton, who plays a tradition-
al power position, snapped a 34-game homerless streak last weekend with his ﬁfth home run. “There’s more home runs in there from our guys,” manager Bob Geren said. “We don’t have a lot of 30 home run guys. But there’s deﬁnitely a core group that should hit in double digits or maybe push the 20 mark. The second half is usually more conducive to homers with the weather and things like that. Especially here in our park it travels a little better in the summer.” Cust, the team’s biggest power threat,

Bradley Dredge (66), Lee Westwood (67) and Y.E. Yang (67) teed off after the wind showed up at noon. “The difference for the early and late starters was huge,” Westwood said. “You could have kicked it round in a low score this morning. The course was defenseless, and I actually expected somebody to post a 62. I don’t think I have ever known St. Andrews as calm. Hopefully, we might get a break with the weather tomorrow morning, but you never know.” Retief Goosen turned on his television just before 10 a.m. and saw Daly at 7-under par through 11 holes. The wind already was whipping ﬂags when he teed off, and the two-time U.S. Open champion equated his 69 to a 66 had he played in the morning. He bore no grudges. Such is the ﬁckle nature of links golf. “You’ve still got to make a score,” Goosen said. “It doesn’t matter how easy it is.” Phil Mickelson didn’t make a birdie in the afternoon until making an 8foot putt on the last hole for a 73, and walking off the course without speakgames in section, you couldn’t blame South San Francisco for feeling a bit shocked after suffering its ﬁrst loss Wednesday. The only question was how the Indians would respond. “(Against Foster City) we came out strong and didn’t ﬁnish. Today we came back and finished,” Cakebread said. “It’s a team of 17 players who ﬁght and just do what we do. If we play the way like we did (against San Bruno), we can take Foster City.”

Northern Ireland with a game beyond his years. His 63 tied the lowest score in any major, and it was only the second such score at St. Andrews in golf’s oldest championship. Of the eight players who have shot 63 in the British Open, McIlroy is the only one to do it in the ﬁrst round. “I’m very happy that I was able to take advantage of those conditions,” said McIlroy, who had a two-shot lead over Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa. “And it gives me a little bit of a buffer going into the next three days, whatever weather comes our way.” It sure didn’t feel easy in the afternoon. Not long after McIlroy ﬁnished his round, the leaden skies over St. Andrews Bay brought showers to the Old Course and a breeze that picked up strength the rest of the afternoon. Of the 16 players atop the leaderboard, only Peter Hanson (66),
Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland shot a 9-under 63 to take the ﬁrst-round lead of the British Open.
ing to reporters. McIlroy’s amazing run began with a drive that he hit onto the green at the 352-yard ninth hole to about 15 feet below the hole. He knocked that in for birdie and was on his way. The freckled-face kid followed with a sand wedge to 6 feet on the 10th for birdie, The Indians received a solid start from Tyler Rios, who allowed two runs over ﬁve innings. San Bruno put runners on base in four of the ﬁve innings, but Rios was at his best when he needed to be, stranding several San Bruno runners in scoring position. “Tyler didn’t have his best stuff, but he gutted it out and kept battling,” Freitas said. Luchiano Molina led San Bruno with three hits, including a run-scora 7-iron to 8 feet for birdie on the 11th, and two putts from 50 feet on the short 12th hole. It was so low — and so there for the taking — that even after a recordtying round, he thought about the one that got away. McIlroy was 8 under when he ﬂew ing double that reached the fence in left ﬁeld on one bounce in the ﬁfth. It was an impressive shot, considering it’s 370 feet down the left-ﬁeld line. Teammate Jake Steenvoorde ﬁnished with two hits. South San Francisco leadoff man and center ﬁelder David Jimenez made his presence felt in a number of ways. In addition to making two nice back-to-back catches in the ﬁfth inning — thereby preventing a run from scoring — Jimenez also singled, was hit by a pitch, reached
his approach dangerously close over the Road Hole bunker on the 17th, leaving him a 5-foot birdie putt. Make that, and he goes to the 357-yard 18th with a shot at 62. He missed. “It sort of went through my mind on 17 that 62 would have been the lowest round in a major,” McIlroy said. “That’s probably why I missed the putt.” He already shot a 62 earlier this year on a course that was far tougher than St. Andrews on Thursday — Quail Hollow for his ﬁrst victory in America. It was another example why so many have predicted stardom for him. He also shot a 61 at Royal Portrush when he was 16. This was different. “I think it probably is the most special just because it’s at St. Andrews,” McIlroy said. “And it’s the Open Championship.” Oosthuizen looked as though he might have a chance to join McIlroy. He also was at 8 under playing the 17th until making a bogey, then failing to pick up a stroke on the last hole and settling for a 65. on an error, stole a base and drove in a run with a sacriﬁce-ﬂy to make it 2-1 in the second. Even though both Foster City and South San Francisco earned berths in the Colt Region tournament next week, Freitas said the winner of the section contest will earn a stronger seed and probably a more favorable matchup in Region. Translation: There’s plenty at stake today even though neither team’s season is on the line.

owner of the team. Mandalay has ﬁnanced, produced and distributed numerous motion pictures including “Donnie Brasco,” “Enemy at the Gates,” and “Seven Years in Tibet.” Cohan has had ﬁnancial problems. In 2007, the Internal Revenue Service said he owed more than $160 million in back income taxes and penalties from the 1998 sale of a cable television company. Cohan bought the Warriors in January 1995 for about $119 million and made the playoffs just once in his entire tenure. The only other franchises that have been in the league since then to make the playoffs fewer than ﬁve times are the Los Angeles Clippers with two appearances and the Memphis/Vancouver Grizzlies with three. The one playoff berth came in 2007, when the Warriors became the ﬁrst No. 8 seed to beat the top seed in a best-of-seven series. Golden State lost to Utah in the following round and failed to make the playoffs in 2008 despite winning 48 games. The Warriors have reverted to form the past two seasons with 55 wins in that span. But despite the long run of on-court struggles, Golden State has a passionate fan base that has helped pack Oracle Arena in recent years and made the team a desirable target for a new owner. Cohan thanked the Warriors fans, calling them the “best fans in all of sports.” One of the ﬁrst major decisions the new owners will have to make is whether to keep the Warriors management team in place. Coach Don Nelson has one year and $6 million remaining on his contract. President Robert Rowell and general manager Larry Riley also could be replaced. boost to the rotation. Oakland also expects to get Dallas Braden back from the disabled list next week. Braden provided the ﬁrst half highlight for the team with his perfect game against Tampa Bay on May 9, but has gone winless in eight starts since then. “Our starting pitching has been pretty good even with their absence,” Geren said. “I think we’re going to get some players back that are going to help us. And we play those teams ahead of us in the second half as well.” The A’s are also looking for a boost from outﬁelder Conor Jackson, who played only 14 games after being acquired from Arizona last month before going on the DL with a hamstring injury. Oakland also was without outﬁelder Coco Crisp for 70 games, Suzuki for three weeks and second baseman Mark Ellis for a month because of injuries in the ﬁrst half. “In the second half, hopefully we’ll be able to keep everybody together and everybody healthy,” Crisp said. “We stand a good chance of making a push to the end and we’ll see what happens.” One player who might not make it to the ﬁnish with Oakland is Ben Sheets, who signed a $10 million, one-year deal as a free agent in the offseason. Sheets is just 4-8 but put together back-to-back solid starts against the Yankees and Angels before the break. That could be enough to get a contender to make a play for him before the trade deadline. “I’m just trying to go out there and pitch the best I can,” Sheets said. “Everything else takes care of itself.”

While the two sides worked out the details, Ellison came back with what Galatioto described as a “marginally higher” offer just hours before the signing. “He was way past the deadline,” Galatioto said. “There was no way I was going to recommend that bid to Chris. ... Once the shot clock expires, are you allowed to get back on the court and have it count? I don’t think so.” The bid from Lacob and Guber broke the record for the largest sale in league history, topping the $401 million Robert Sarver paid to buy the Phoenix Suns in 2004. The deal still needs to be approved by threequarters of the NBA Board of Governors. Lacob also must sell his interest in the Celtics. Galatioto said he expects the deal to be ﬁnalized by the end of September. Lacob, who has been a season-ticket holder for the Warriors, was part of the ownership group with the Celtics when they won their 17th championship two years ago. He has also been involved in sports websites, was the primary investor in the women’s American Basketball League along in venture capital. Guber is a producer who helped bring movies such as “Rain Man,” “Batman,” “Flashdance,” and “The Color Purple” to the screen. In 1995, he founded the Mandalay Entertainment Group with partner Paul Schaeffer, who will also be an

watched “The Decision” because you couldn’t help it. And by watching, you not only build the monster, but you feed it and keep it going. You love the spectacle, the freak show, the accident waiting to happen. No matter what you say, you ate it up and wanted more. Much more. Then you lambasted James afterwards, just waiting to bring down “The King.” The reality is, if you weren’t so inclined to watch, ESPN, James and his entourage wouldn’t come up with some cockamamie production as “The Decision.” But they knew you would watch, and so did you, even if there was some small part of your brain making you feel a tinge of guilt for wanting to be a part of the spectacle. You can be disappointed in LeBron for not being a true alpha dog in the mold of a Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant. Jordan and Kobe would’ve stuck it out in Cleveland because they would be cocky enough to know they could lead that God-forsaken organization to a championship. Not LeBron. So be disappointed in that regard, but how are you going to get on him for “The Decision” when you were equally responsible for the freak show? • Warriors under new ownership. All together now — hip-hop, hooray! Good riddance, Chris Cohan. Joe Lacob and Mandalay Entertainment CEO Peter Guber taking ownership from Cohan is the best news for Golden State fans, in, well, ever. Under Cohan’s reign of incompetence, the Warriors were the most pathetic organization in all of sports. Even the woebegone Los Angeles Clippers (two times) and Memphis Grizzlies (three) made more playoff appearances in the time Cohan owned the Warriors, since January 1995. Golden State making the playoffs three years ago was akin to winning the lottery — twice. Had Cohan continued to own the Warriors, the odds of them making the postseason again would’ve been almost as steep as yours truly getting a date with Kristin Kreuk — as in a one

snapped a 22-game homerless streak last Friday and added another deep ball Sunday in a sign that maybe he has ﬁnally found his stroke after starting the season in the minors. The A’s hit ﬁve home runs in the ﬁnal threegame series of the ﬁrst half, taking two of three against the division rival Angels. That helped Oakland improve to 43-46 at the break and move within 7 1/2 games of division-leading Texas. “It was up and down,” Cust said of the ﬁrst half. “We had some good moments and some struggles but I think overall we’re in a good position. We get to play teams ahead of us head-to-head a bunch in the second half. The opportunity’s going to be there so hopefully we can play some baseball like we’ve played the last couple days and make it tough on some of these teams.” Oakland’s pitching has been the key so far, led by All-Stars Trevor Cahill and Andrew Bailey. Cahill, who turned 22 in spring training, is 9-3 with a 2.94 ERA. Bailey followed up his Rookie of the Year campaign with 18 saves and a 1.70 ERA in the ﬁrst half. A’s starters are fourth in the league with a 3.74 ERA despite getting only six starts from Brett Anderson and five from Justin Duchscherer because of injuries. Duchscherer is out for the year but Anderson is expected to return as early as this month to provide a big
in a million — check that, 10 million — shot. *** San Mateo’s Palomino team produced one of the biggest wins in program history Tuesday when it put a 13-1 beatdown on the Santa Clara Red Sox, winners of multiple Palomino World Series championships. In beating Santa Clara for the ﬁrst time since 2002 — the game was called after ﬁve innings due to the mercy rule — the White Sox put themselves in a strong position to win their ﬁrst league title in program history. At 16-2, San Mateo is currently all alone atop the Palomino League standings. Tuesday, the White Sox scored in every inning, breaking things open with a seven-run third. Mitch Labbie highlighted the inning with a grand slam, his second homer of the game. Labbie ﬁnished with ﬁve RBIs, Tyler Nitihara had a double and home run and Nick Franquez allowed just one earned run in going the distance.

Bay Area sports fans are lucky to have someone who is informative, doesn’t sugarcoat anything and can ask the tough questions without coming off as a jerk. In an era where hosts don’t speak the truth or are afraid to because of their relationship with the team, Bruce is the polar opposite: Daring, entertaining and LOL — that’s Internet slang for laugh out loud, for the unhip out there — funny.

Poems a tough fit in e-form
By Hillel Italie
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Billy Collins, one of the country’s most popular poets, had never seen his work in e-book form until he recently downloaded his latest collection on his Kindle. He was unpleasantly surprised. “I found that even in a very small font that if the original line is beyond a certain length, they will take the extra word and have it ﬂush left on the screen, so that instead of a three-line stanza you actually have a four-line stanza. And that screws everything up,” says Collins, a former U.S. poet laureate w h o s e “Ballistics” came out in February. When he adjusted the size to large print, his work was changed b e y o n d recognition, a single line turning into t h r e e , “which is quite distressing,” he adds. Poetry, the most precise and precious of literary forms, is also so far the least adaptable to the growing e-book market. A three-line stanza might be expanded to four if a line is too long or a four-line stanza compressed into three if the second and fourth lines have sharp indentations, as with Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s “Hymn to the Night.” Royalty disputes, philosophical objections and suspicions of technology are keeping countless books from appearing in electronic form, from “The Catcher in the Rye” to “Gravity’s Rainbow.” But for poetry, the gap is especially large because publishers and e-book makers have not ﬁgured out how the integrity of a poem can be guaranteed. And a displaced word, even a comma, can alter a poem’s meaning as surely as skipping a note changes a song. “The critical difference between prose and poetry is that prose is kind of like water and will become the shape of any vessel you pour it into to. Poetry is like a piece of sculpture and can easily break,” Collins says. Major poets not yet in e-form include Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Sylvia Plath, W.H. Auden and Robert Lowell, Langston Hughes and C.K. Williams. No e-editions of poetry are available from this year’s Pulitzer Prize winner, Rae Armantrout; from Pulitzer winner and incoming U.S. poet laureate W.S. Merwin; or from such recent laureates as Charles Simic, Robert Pinsky and Louise Glueck. “I have mixed feelings about poetry and ebooks,” says award-winning poet Edward Hirsch, whose “The Living Fire” came out in March in hardcover, but not as an electronic text. “I don’t think it’s the best way to read poetry myself and I wouldn’t want to read it on the e-book, but it also seems important to have poetry available wherever possible.”

THE CAST RECOMMENDS:
Kokkari Estiatorio (200 Jackson St.) for Greek/Mediterranean and Chiaroscuro (550 Washington St.) for Italian.
From Off-Broadway, “Piaf: Love Conquers All” comes to San Francisco, with chanteuse Naomi Emmerson interpreting the life and music of Edith Piaf, “The Little Sparrow,” the cultural icon universally regarded as France’s greatest popular singer. Among Piaf’s songs are “La Vie en rose” (1946), “Hymne à l’amour” (1949), “Milord” (1959), “Non, je ne regrette rien” (1960), “l’Accordéoniste” (1955), “Padam... Padam...” (1951) and “La Foule” (1957), all of which Emmerson presents in the original French, accompanied by Alan Choy’s live acoustic piano. (The play’s dialogue is in English.) Emmerson weaves anecdotes of Piaf’s life among the songs – conveying her passion for men, music and morphine. Running time 110 minutes with one intermission. Directed by Naomi Emmerson. Written by Roger Peace. Through Aug. 7.
OH,AND DID YOU KNOW?:
When Piaf died of liver cancer at age 47 on Oct. 11, 1963, her funeral procession drew tens of thousands of mourners onto the streets of Paris and more than 100,000 fans attended the ceremony at the cemetery. Charles Aznavour recalled that Piaf’s funeral procession was the only time since the end of World War II that he saw Parisian trafﬁc come to a complete stop. Her grave in Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris is among the most visited. For footage of Piaf singing visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFRu LFR91e4.
Emmerson says, “The most captivating thing about Piaf for me is her insatiable need to be loved and her unrelenting desire to sing, against all odds. I am fascinated by her obsessive passion for her art. Singing was like food or air to her. She often said: “If I could not sing, I would die.” The fact that I have been performing this legendary icon for ﬁve years, allows me to really get into her skin each night. I never get tired of it, or bored. It is the

Rick Bayless throws a fiesta
By Michelle Kayal
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Rick Bayless has spent three decades teasing out the secrets of Mexican cooking, from street stall grub to high-end restaurant fare. Now the Chicago restaurateur captures the essence of a grand Mexican party in “Fiesta at Rick’s.” This sixth cookbook by Bayless turns classics upside down while actually enhancing their authenticity, with more than 150 recipes that will guide you from a pre-dinner drinks party to a paella extravaganza for the whole neighborhood. Thought you knew guacamole? Think again. Bayless serves up a halfdozen recipes for the iconic dip that incorporate items like smoky bacon, toasted pumpkin seeds, or subtly sweet mango puree. Margaritas are freshened with blood orange or cucumber, and gussied up with Champagne for the perfect brunch cocktail. Little tips — for instance, skip the salted rim and shake your sodium directly into the drink — make you look like a fiesta master. And soft drinks made from puckery tamarind, fresh watermelon, or rice and almonds bring Mexico to your backyard. In chapters arranged by type of dish — for instance, “nibbles” or tapas, or street food — Bayless takes home cooks from basic lime-and-onion ceviche to red chili tuna tartare, from

butterflied whole fish marinated in chilies, garlic and soy sauce to a tequila-spiked paella for 30. And who knew that potato salad — that staple of the American summer picnic — could be reinvented with beef, avocado and smoky chipotles? Bayless espouses fresh ingredients and painstaking techniques, but aspiring chefs with more dreams than time will appreciate his concession to daily realities with substitutions like frozen tamarind for fresh, and recipes such as “easy” mole, made in the slow-cooker. Full-blown fiesta menus end each chapter, offering step-by-step plans for a party, including the luxury guacamole bar that helped Bayless win the first season of “Top Chef Masters.” There’s even a playlist, that unfortunate development in cookbook publishing that requires chefs to divulge what music they (or their public relations people) think goes best with their food.
The Impressionists. Today their paintings are so familiar, so loved and so expensive. It’s hard to imagine that they were once rejected by the social establishment and sent the art world into a frenzy. What was it all about? “Birth of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay,” the extraordinary exhibit at San Francisco’s de Young Museum, tells the story, focusing on the tumultuous period of the 1860s and 1870s in Paris. The artists whose works are represented include Manet, Monet, Sisley and the American expatriate James McNeill Whistler, whose “Arrangement in Grey and Black, No 1.,” better known as “Whistler’s Mother,” is one of the exhibition highlights.

it’s actually a heist movie — the tried-andtrue One Last Job, to be exact — but Nolan takes these elements and combines them in a way that is daringly, dazzlingly his own. So ... where were we again? Ah yes, explaining what “Inception” is about. DiCaprio’s Dom Cobb is an extractor, a sort of master thief who enters the mind while a person is dreaming to steal their secrets. Watanabe, as the powerful businessman Saito, hires Dom and his team for a different kind of crime: sneak into the subconscious of a competitor (Cillian Murphy) and implant an idea that will ruin his empire. In return, Saito will help Dom clear his name for a crime he didn’t commit, one that’s torn him from his wife and two young children and forced him to go on the run. And so, as in any classic caper, “Inception” provides the anticipation of watching Dom assemble his crew and map out his scheme, with each person performing a speciﬁc function. While Dom is the big-picture guy, Arthur handles the details. Eames (the hugely charismatic Tom Hardy from “Bronson”) is the forger — someone who can assume another identity to control the dreamer. Yusuf (Dileep Rao) is the chemist whose concoction to physically represent the mind’s inner terrain. This is partly because of advances in digital effects, which have made it possible to create nearly anything imaginable. But this cinematic trend also dovetails recent developments in psychiatry. In recent years, scientists have increasingly pinpointed how the mind works using technologies for brain imaging and brain mapping that can localize brain activity. “Now in psychology we’re using a lot more neuroimaging devices, such as PET scans, CAT scans, MRIs,” says Dr. Sharon Packer, psychiatrist and author of “Movies and the Modern Psyche,” a 2007 book that looks at the connection between psychology and ﬁlm. “Psychiatry is now thinking in terms of visions, if we look at neuroimaging. Psychiatry is getting much more visual, so I think that plays into a different kind of ﬁlm.” And so ﬁlmmakers, too, have mapped the brain. In 2004’s “Eternal Sunshine,” Jim Carrey stumbles through his memories while they’re being erased: rain falls indoors; a bed is suddenly transported to a beach; a tiny Carrey is washed by his mother in the sink. And in “The Matrix” (1999), which inﬂuenced Nolan, Neo (Keanu Reeves) spends most of the ﬁlm plugged into a separate world, his eyes closed and body strapped down while he crusades in another reality. The experience of moviegoing has long been said to be similar to a waking dream, and many of the most beloved ﬁlms (“Wizard of Oz,”

thread when he enters to slay the Minotaur. (Thanks, seventh-grade English class!) But when they all fall asleep and dream together, both as practice and during the real deal, forces from their own subconscious states enter the picture — namely Dom’s wife, Mal (Marion Cotillard), someone else whose name offers a clue. Here’s where DiCaprio infuses the character with vulnerability to complement his drive. Wistful memories of their relationship provide the necessary heart to balance out the intense braininess of the picture, some softness to lighten the substantial heft of the machinery. And what a machine it is. You’ve seen the big set pieces countless times in the commercials: a freight train plowing through downtown trafﬁc, DiCaprio and Page sitting calmly in a cafe surrounded by explosions, Paris folding over on top of itself, Gordon-Levitt ﬂoating through a hotel corridor. You haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen them on the big screen. They’re enormous yet intricately detailed, tactile while at the same time ... well, dreamlike. It’s all part of one of the year’s best ﬁlms, one that will surely get even better upon repeated viewings. never seen before.” Protosevich said the world of the mind was, to him, “as interesting as Pandora on ‘Avatar.”’ “The potential for a unique experience is there, and that’s what I’m looking for when I go to the movies. I could see movies that deal with this idea all the time.” There are also many less literal movies of the mind. “The Usual Suspects” is essentially the figment of an imagination. Martin Scorsese’s “Shutter Island” is the deranged vision of a psychotic, his paranoia made real. David Fincher’s “Fight Club” actually splices the ﬁlm with subconscious ﬂickers of the protagonist’s (Edward Norton) alter ego, Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt). Others, too, are on the way. HBO is developing a drama series, to be executive produced by Fincher, based on the book “Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit.” Next March, Matt Damon will star in “The Adjustment Bureau,” in which his character is given a glimpse of his future. Audiences have often been eager for the ride. Into-the-mind films such as “The Matrix” and “Being John Malkovich” are among the most widely revered movies of the last decade. The early, glowing reviews of “Inception” suggest it could continue the trend. “Hey are you a dreamer?” asks a character in Richard Linklater’s animated “Waking Life” (2001). “The dreamer is banished to obscurity. Well, I’m trying to change all that, and I hope you are, too.”

in dreams, layers of consciousness and methods of manipulation, “Inception” might make you want to stop a few times just to get your bearings. The juggernaut of Nolan’s storytelling momentum, however, keeps pounding away. Even from the very beginning, you may feel a bit off-balance, with Nolan jumping around in time before dropping you into the middle of a tense conversation between Leonardo DiCaprio as dream thief Dom Cobb, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as his right-hand man, Arthur, and Ken Watanabe as one of their clients. That’s part of the game, though: making us question what’s reality and what’s a product of sleep, right alongside the characters. That experience in itself may sound a bit familiar, and “Inception” does feature glimmers of mind-trip movies like “The Matrix,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and even a “Wizard of Oz” moment. At its core,

allows them all to turn on, tune in and drop out together. Ariadne (Ellen Page, showing an appealingly low-key intelligence) is the architect, the one who builds the maze-like structure of the dream. Since she’s the newcomer, she also serves as our guide in this brave new world. And her name, like that of several characters, couldn’t have been a coincidence; in Greek mythology, Ariadne helps lead Theseus out of the labyrinth with a ball of red “Vertigo,” “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”) are positively dreamlike. But in contemporary movies, outside views of the psyche often aren’t enough. Perhaps ﬁlmmakers, reacting to developments in science, feel that they know much better what the mind looks like. “Because I pay attention to (dreams), I become more attuned to them and I become more sensitive,” Michel Gondry (“Eternal Sunshine,” “The Science of Sleep”) once said. “It’s a good way to see ﬁlmmaking, associating disparate images.” Many of these ﬁlms are among the most complex of recent mainstream movies, with nonlinear plots and elaborate systems of reality. Often, these journeys into the mind are less likely to unlock a simple secret or memory, but reveal an unknowable, mysterious labyrinth. And those who think they have the mind ﬁgured out usually get their comeuppance. The 2000 ﬁlm “The Cell” was written by Mark Protosevich and starred Jennifer Lopez as a psychotherapist who literally goes inside the nightmarish mind of a serial killer to search for clues for his latest victim. Inspired in part by “Brainscan” (1994) and “Dreamscape” (1984), it was ornately and lavishly directed by Tarsem Singh. “This type of story does give directors who have a strong visual sense a great opportunity,” said Protosevich. “I sometimes think that movies visually have gotten a little bland or are just sort of over the top. But a visually strong director given this kind of environment to work in can create something that you’ve

long, intertwined history with psychology, recent movies of the mind suggest a new trend where characters and camera dive headlong into the mind. Christopher Nolan, who directed and wrote “Inception,” said that the way a dream is formed, to him, “suggests inﬁnite potential for human creativity, an inﬁnite mystery to the way the human mind works.” “I really think that that’s when the tools of large-scale Hollywood ﬁlmmaking are being used to serve their best ends,” he said in a recent interview. “Really, it’s just creating an alternate reality for people to explore that they could never have imagined themselves. With ‘Inception,’ that is certainly my attempt to try and do that.” And so audiences are treated to startling visions in “Inception”: Paris turning on top of itself; a train suddenly barreling through a downtown street; Leonardo DiCaprio stealthily traveling through another person’s multileveled dream, moving secretly past a peopled subconscious in a wholly fabricated city. Whereas older movies such Alfred Hitchcock’s “Spellbound” (1945) — with Salvador Dali’s surreal dream sequence — dealt with psychoanalysis, or “The Manchurian Candidate” (1965) dealt with mind control, current ﬁlms are more inclined

to story times. Currently, San Bruno offers story times in English and Spanish, and also offers a pajama story time, said Schwartz. O’Connell noted that people often forget the ﬁscal year goes from July 1 through June 30, basically the middle of summer. Making cuts to the summer reading program would affect kids both this summer and next, she said. Regardless of the proposal approved, the library will be open two hours less daily Monday through Friday, changing the hours to 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Approval of the budget was previously postponed on June 22 since only three of the ﬁve councilmembers were in attendance. Filling the $1.85 million budget hole will be $900,000 in one-time funds, $137,000 in savings from sharing ﬁre services with Millbrae and $821,000 from reducing employee positions. Salary freezes were accepted by two of the city’s six bargaining groups. Negotiations are continuing as the budget is built in anticipation of all groups signing on. This ﬁscal year will also have eight furlough days for city workers. The district could also research a fund to help cover the ﬁnancial cost for students interested in the courses. In addition, Normandy wanted to research creating enrichment courses on topics like music or architecture that could offer extra opportunities for district employees to make money while offering students courses during winter or spring break. While selling surplus land was not favored, researching developing singlefamily houses on the former Foxridge site and selling the homes for proﬁt was interesting. Weise previously expressed interest in such an idea with the intent of offering affordable housing for school and city employees, an idea he still supported. Various options for advertising were not welcomed completely. Trustee Judy Bush was not in favor of selling advertising space on school vehicles. On the other hand, Normandy suggested looking for advertising to put on the district website to cover the $20,000 annual maintenance cost. Although on vacation, Trustee Shirlee inﬂuence or acting recklessly. Shaghzoian was driving Gilbert and Valdivia to San Francisco when at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 4 she reportedly weaved and drove off the shoulder before careening off Highway 101 near Oyster Point Boulevard in South San Francisco. The vehicle ﬂipped and landed in a drainage ditch. Valdivia and Gilbert were pronounced dead at the scene and Holtz said her life was changed forever. Gilbert, whose given name was Gerard, was an only child. Conﬁdent and talented, he collected people the way others collect rocks or video games, Holtz said. If somebody needed a home, her son brought them to theirs. At Peninsula High School, he worked with other students to change the school colors to black and gold. He had registered for Skyline Community College with an eye on art but also wanted to explore social work and eventually teach after receiving his credential at Jackson State University in Mississippi. “It was a privilege to be his mom,” of the farm bureau in 1995 and was involved in many other local organizations, including the County Fair Board. The California Farm Bureau Federation is conducting a review of the local farm bureau’s ﬁnances. The state Farm Bureau is a non-governmental, nonproﬁt, membership-driven group whose purpose is to protect and promote agricultural interests throughout the state. The state Farm Bureau is comprised of 53 county farm bureaus that represent approximately 85,000 members in 56 counties. Half Moon Bay Councilman John Muller is on the local farm bureau’s At the same meeting, the council approved a six-month contract for legal services as an interim solution to the vacant city attorney positions. Pamela Thompson, whose last day as city attorney is July 16, resigned from the post in June to take the same position in Redwood City. Thompson’s last day in the San Bruno ofﬁce was Friday. She starts in Redwood City in early August. In the meantime, the council hired the San Carlos ﬁrm Aaronson, Dickerson, Cohn and Lanzone for interim city attorney services over the next six months. Under the contract, Bob Lanzone will serve as the interim city attorney with support from Greg Rubens as interim deputy city attorney as needed for $14,000 per month. The contract calls for Lanzone to have ofﬁce hours in San Bruno two days a week, attend all regular and special City Council meetings and attend Planning Commission meetings as needed. The contract excludes Lanzone from labor negotiations, legal representation for workers compensation claim and litigation, specialized legal advice and representation of the city in major litigation. Hoch sent a number of ideas to be read including focusing on the foundation started by her and her husband, the South San Francisco Foundation for Youth. Hoch advocated for direct donation requests and increasing on-site Trustees Bush and Goodman were both opposed to charging students for transportation to a sporting event. At the same meeting, the board discussed the possible project list for a $162 million bond measure to upgrade school facilities that could be placed before voters in November. To put a bond measure on the ballot, the board must make a decision by Aug. 6. The board is expected to vote during a special meeting Wednesday, Aug. 4. If the board does place it on the ballot, such a measure requires a 55 percent vote to pass. Bond funds could support a laundry list of projects on any of the district’s schools such as solar panels, major renovation, roof repairs, portable classrooms replacement, science classrooms and library upgrades and athletic ﬁeld improvements. Holtz said. “He was such an inspiration to people he met but also to me.” His friends paint a similar picture. “He lived like everyone should, making every last breath count like it was his last and didn’t care what anyone had to say about it,” said Emily Rosenblatt. Roxanne Wahab, a friend since eighth grade, said, “no amount of time can ever heal what was taken from us all.” The question now is the correct remedy for that loss. Gilbert’s cousin, Andrea Holtz, said there must be consequences for the taking of a life. “It’s like they think let’s move on but my family’s not moving on. My cousins, my grandmother, we’re all just trying to do the best we can, but it’s like Alex and Jared’s life meant nothing,” Holtz said. In December, with no prosecution in site, Daphne Holtz ﬁled a civil suit against Shaghzoian and her family. She has since decided against pursuing that avenue. “What do they have that I want? All I want is my son,” Holtz said. board of directors, which was scheduled to meet in closed session this week to discuss the group’s ﬁnances. Muller referred questions to San Mateo County Farm Bureau President Rex Geitner, who could not be reached for comment yesterday. The county farm bureaus are the nucleus of the state organization. Members join at the county level by payment of annual dues.

How to cover the $22,000, however, has not yet been established, said City Manager Connie Jackson. Jackson is considering all options, like reconﬁguring library hours and cuts in other places. Dipping into the reserves is not an option given the council’s previous direction, she said. San Bruno’s library is currently open four hours on Friday, but would not be open on Fridays should the entire $70,000 in cuts were to go into effect, said Library Director Randy Schwartz.

school options. Charging for summer school generated mixed comments. Some high school students enroll in local community colleges during the summer to prep for courses, said board President Liza Normandy. If those same courses could be offered at the high schools, students would have to travel a shorter distance and the district could generate some cash. Trustee Phil Weise took issue with charging students for school, noting districts are supposed to offer free education. Charging for classes will immediately make taking the classes impossible for some students, he said. Goodman suggested talking with the community college district to see if a partnership — where the classes could be on the high school campuses but run by college professors — could be a solution.

Holtz said she’s not sure what that would be. She doesn’t know what exactly the prosecution has uncovered, she’s not aware of Shaghzoian’s mental state currently and still teeters between good and bad days. “I do forgive her. I have. It’s just that the law is the law and I didn’t bring charges against her,” Holtz said. The District Attorney’s Ofﬁce ﬁled the charges against Shaghzoian on Feb. 1. The misdemeanor nature of the charges mean prosecutors believe she is responsible for the two deaths but not guilty of gross negligence, such as driving while under the

FRiDAy, July 16, 2010
The best of both worlds could be yours in the year ahead, in that some persons at work could turn out to be wonderful companions with whom to do things socially. It should be a pleasant period for you.
CAPRiCORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - It doesn’t take much
brainpower to know that if you’re not as strong a finisher as needed, success is likely to be denied you. Be determined and consistent in all you do.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) - If you’re unduly concerned about trying to impress others in order to feed your ego, it could cause you to end up boasting, exaggerating or behaving in some kind of unbecoming manner. lEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - By following a policy of always being
forthright in your dealings with others, even if it is painful, you won’t have to worry about what you said to whom and why. Tell it like it is.
AQuARiuS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Those who work at your side might have more faith in your abilities than you do yourself. If you allow negative thinking to establish your pace, your chances of success are small. PiSCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - Be content with the hand that is dealt you and you should do reasonably well for yourself. If your expectations are too high, you will be courting disappointment. ARiES (March 21-April 19) - All agreements should be
clearly thought out, regardless of their importance, but even more so now. There are strong signs that any little bug that isn’t thrown out will come home to bite.
ViRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Take extra care to exercise your best judgment when it comes to handling your funds, so that you can hang onto some of what you’ve recently acquired. Material conditions could be tricky at this juncture. liBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Someone might make you an
important promise that you’ll want to take to heart. However, be careful because it is likely to be done simply to placate you for the time being.
SCORPiO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Do be protective of your interests, but also share fairly what has been acquired through a joint endeavor. Behaving selfishly could generate some problems difficult to resolve.
TAuRuS (April 20-May 20) - It shouldn’t need to be said, that if you fail to follow through on a project the way you envisioned it to be, it won’t live up to your expectations. See things to completion, or the end result won’t be what you want. GEMiNi (May 21-June 20) - Even if you don’t mean it, playing down to others or treating friends indifferently won’t win you any fans. Be extra mindful of your social decorum when you’re out and about.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF ROSE GONSALVES Case Number 117125 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: Rose Gonsalves. A Petition for Probate has been filed by: Cheryl Ann Gonsalves Alfano in the Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo. The Petition of Probate requests that Cheryl Ann Gonsalves Alfano be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal represenative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection of the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: August 16, 2010 at 9:00 a.m., Dept. 28, 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA 94063. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in Probate Code section 9100. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hearing date noticed above. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner: David T. Moutoux, Esq. 865 Laurel Street, Suite 2 San Carlos, CA 94070 (650)596-8135 Published in the San Mateo Daily Journal on July 9, 16, 23, 2010.

Blast in Pakistan kills five,wounds 58
By Sherin Zada and Riaz Khan
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Around the world
Iraqis take charge of last prison in U.S. control
BAGHDAD — Iraq assumed control of the last U.S.-run prison camp in the country on Thursday, a milestone that casts a spotlight on the Iraqi government’s troubled record of caring for inmates amid allegations of torture and overcrowding at Iraqi-run facilities. The change in command at Camp Cropper — which was renamed Karkh Prison — marks the end of a troubling chapter in the U.S. presence in the country, which was marred in the early years by photographs showing American soldiers abusing inmates at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison. It also raised questions about how well prepared the Iraqis are to handle the detainees. Inmates in Iraqi detention facilities have repeatedly complained about torture and beatings by the police, as well as overcrowding and poor conditions behind bars. Prisoners in U.S. custody, meanwhile, have beneﬁted from reforms in the wake of the 2004 Abu Ghraib scandal.
MINGORA, Pakistan — An apparent suicide bombing near a bus terminal in Pakistan’s Swat Valley killed ﬁve people and wounded at least 58 on Thursday, ofﬁcials said, a sign that Islamist militants remain active in the northwest region despite a massive army operation. The explosion went off around noon in Mingora, the main town in the one-time tourist haven that was largely overrun by Taliban militants in 2007. Pakistani TV footage showed vehicles bent and twisted due to the force of the blast. Some men were desperately trying to open the doors of a car to reach a woman and man sitting in the front who were bloodied and appeared unconscious. The area struck was crowded, so the death toll could rise signiﬁcantly. Senior police ofﬁcial Qazi Ghulam Farooq said ﬁve people died, including two women, and that officials believed a suicide bomber was involved. At least 58 people were wounded, he said. The Pakistan military launched its biggest operation against the Taliban in Swat in 2009 after a failed attempt at a peace deal that included pledges to impose Islamic law in the area. The operation forced some 2 million people
At least 20 killed in bombings in southeast Iran
TEHRAN, Iran — Twin bombings killed at least 20 people outside a mosque in southeastern Iran on Thursday — including members of the powerful Revolutionary Guard — in attacks that came less than a month after Iran hanged the leader of a militant insurgent group in the region. Iran’s ofﬁcial IRNA news agency quoted the deputy governor of the Sistan-Baluchistan province, Jalal Sayyah, as saying the explosions tore through a crowd of Shiite worshippers near the main mosque in the provincial capital of Zahedan. The deputy interior minister in charge of security, Ali Abdollahi, told the semiofﬁcial Fars news agency that members of the Revolutionary Guard — the country’s most powerful military force — were killed in the blasts, which appeared to be the work of suicide bombers.
A woman injured in a suicide bomb attack in Mingora, in Pakistan’s Swat Valley, is assisted at Lady Reading Hospital in Peshawar.
to ﬂee, but after a few months, the army said it had taken control and many of the refugees returned home. Still, violence has occasionally ﬂared in Swat, shaking people’s conﬁdence. A handful of targeted killings of antiTaliban elders in particular has worried those who fear the insurgents are staging a comeback in the valley. In recent weeks, several major suicide attacks have shaken Pakistan. Last week, a pair of suicide bombers blew themselves up in the Mohmand tribal region, killing at least 102 people in the deadliest attack in the U.S.-allied nation this year.
Argentina legalizes gay marriage in historic vote
By Michael Warren
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Argentina became the ﬁrst Latin American nation to legalize gay marriage Thursday, granting samesex couples all the legal rights, responsibilities and protections that marriage brings to heterosexuals.
The law’s passage — a priority for President Cristina Fernandez’s government — has inspired activists to push for similar laws in other countries, and a wave of gay weddings are expected in Buenos Aires. Some gay business leaders are predicting an economic ripple effect from an increase in tourism among gays and lesbians who will see Argentina as
an even more attractive destination. But it also carries political risks for Fernandez and her husband, former President Nestor Kirchner. The vote divided their governing coalition, and while gay rights have strong support in the capital, antigay feelings still run strong in much of Argentine society, where the vast majority of people are
Roman Catholic. “From today onward, Argentina is a more just and democratic country,” said Maria Rachid, president of the Argentine Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender federation. The law “not only recognizes the rights of our families, but also the possibility of having access to health care, to leave a pension, to leave our assets
to the people with whom we have shared many years of life, including our children,” she said. The 33-27 Senate vote was tallied shortly before dawn, after a marathon debate that touched on religion, ethics, the legacy of Argentina’s dictatorship and the challenges of raising children. There were three abstentions.
