Mayor objects, but city OKs fire mediation
Belmont, San Carlos will try to work out differences
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Despite strong objections from its mayor, the Belmont City Council voted 3-2 last night to accept the county’s offer of mediation to settle a dispute over a joint agreement with San Carlos to provide fire services in both cities. The Belmont-San Carlos Fire

Department is set to dissolve this October and Belmont is moving forward with re-establishing its own standalone fire department while San Coralin Feierbach Carlos is seek-

ing proposals to contract out the service. When San Carlos officials went looking for help at San Mateo County’s Finance and Operations Committee in February, supervisors Carole Groom and Adrienne Tissier offered to provide mediation to the two cities rather than offer a propos-

A full-time love of wine
Uncorked Ventures connects wineries to customers

DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

A Los Altos man who prosecutors say twice pretended to be a victim of the San Bruno explosion to collect aid and then complained he couldn’t order room service at the hotel room he was provided was sentenced yesterday to two years and eight months in prison. Daniel Leon Stansbury, 41, faced up to three years in prison after pleading no contest to January to four felonies: two counts of burgla-

ry, one of identity theft and another of grand theft. Stansbury received slightly less with credit for 366 days while in custody on $100,000 bail, according Daniel to court records Stansbury clerks. After posing as a victim of the Sept. 9 explosion and fire that killed

Matt Krause has been interested in wine for well over a decade. After a successful career in human resources, he and his brother-in-law, Mark Aselstine, recently turned their passion for wine into a livelihood. The two men opened Uncorked Ventures, which provides high-quality, boutique wines to customers through a series of three wine clubs, gift packages and event services. “I’ve always had a bug, always kind of wanted to own my own busi-

ness,” said Krause. “I figured why not do something I’m passionate about? It’s a lifestyle I love and this came out as the right thing to do.” Krause attended graduate school in Oregon, where his close proximity to the Willamette Valley encouraged the development of an appreciation and understanding of wine. He moved to the Bay Area in 1996, and spent many weekends pre-kids exploring the wineries of Napa and Sonoma with his wife. Fast-forward 13 years, and what

started out as an escape from the grind of the workweek has morphed into a fulltime job. Conceived in 2009 after a family vacation to South America, Uncorked Ventures hinges on Krause’s and Aselstine’s abil-

Jumping for glory, and fun
Local children make attempt to join record book
By Heather Murtagh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Police reports
The meat of the crime
Four men were seen fleeing with more than $100 worth of stolen meat from a store on El Camino Real in Redwood City before 12:36 p.m. Sunday, March 20.

About 100 children quickly completed a few extra jumping jacks while “Eye of the Tiger” played yesterday afternoon at the Boys & Girls Clubs of North San Mateo County. Most of them dramatically finished the twominute exercise push by dropping to the ground or shared glee by jumping up and down. Two minutes of nothing but jumping jacks isn’t a usual afternoon activity at the South San Francisco location. But Tuesday was special as the 102 youngsters who signed in were part of a larger Boys & Girls Clubs effort to break a world record for the most people star jumping (jumping jacks) simultaneously at multiple locations for two minutes. While recovering, Athletic Director Michael Riordan offered words of encourage-

ment, explaining lots of other kids were doing the jumping jacks at the same time. Resource Development Director Paul Wysocki thought the kids had a chance of breaking the record, which currently stands at 237. The Boys & Girls Club extended the opportunity to participate to all its clubs. Last Wysocki had heard, about 150,000 were estimated to participate. It will take some time to verify, however. In the meantime, the young participants are excited to have been a part of the attempt. Six-year-old Josue didn’t find the challenge hard and he did a lot of jumping jacks to prepare. Riordan had students practice over the past two weeks for 30 seconds and then longer to help students prepare for the big event. Nine-year-old Zoila even practiced at home, she said while holding her science project, a

lady bug in a homemade container named Junior. Zoila didn’t keep count, but estimated that she completed 20 jumping jacks in the two minutes. Amanda, 10, was nervous before the whole thing started Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. She saw cameras around her and wasn’t sure how she’d look during filming. “After a minute, I felt comfortable,” she said. While Amanda always thought she’d be part of some kind of world record, she didn’t think it would involve jumping jacks. Amanda was convinced the record would have to do with eating doughnuts or hot dogs, or something with her friends. At least the last part came true, which made Amanda feel more comfortable about jumping jacks in public as a result.

Year in jail for attempted pimping MENLO PARK
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

A Hayward man who advertised his 20year-old girlfriend for sex on Craigslist was immediately sentenced to a year in jail and probation after pleading no contest to two counts of attempted pimping. Phoenix Fox, 26, changed his plea after prosecutors changed the charges from actual pimping to attempted pimping and offered the condition of no more than a year in jail. He

received that term with credit for 80 days served and earned. He was also given three years supervised probation. He had been out of custody on a $25,000 bail bond but was immediately taken into custody. Fox was arrested just more than a year ago after placing the ad on the popular online classified site. A San Carlos police detective spotted a bulletin from Walnut Creek seeking Fox and the girlfriend and followed up by

calling the number on Craigslist. After arranging a date for sex with the woman, authorities stopped the pair March 17, 2009 in a vehicle on the way to the arranged motel meeting spot. Along with Fox and the woman was a 17-year-old girl, according to the prosecution. The girlfriend purportedly told authorities she prostituted herself to support Fox.

Prison possible in box cutter robbery
A transient who threatened a female RadioShack employee with a box cutter after she discovered him trying to remove a digital camera from its packaging faces up to seven years in prison after pleading no contest to robbery and the use of a deadly weapon. Marquez Ackui Hicks, 33, also admitted having three prior prison terms Marquez Hicks when he changed his plea just after his jury trial was assigned out. In return for taking a negotiated plea settlement, prosecutors dropped the assault charge and offered a six-year term. The court placed a seven-year maximum for Hicks at his May 17 sentencing. Hicks was accused of cutting a digital camera from its packaging at the Ralston Avenue store on Aug. 28 and holding a box cutter to the neck of a clerk trying to intervene. After the suspect fled, police found Hicks near the 1000 block of Old County Road with a box cutter and the stolen item. He was also identified by the store employee. He remains in custody in lieu of $50,000 bail.

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador — Under the shadow of the Libyan war to the end, President Barack Obama sped to the finish of his Latin American journey on Tuesday, promising a better U.S. fight against the violent drug trade that plagues Central America and undermines the security of an entire region. In tiny El Salvador, Obama again found his time diverted and his agenda eclipsed by the U.S.-led military campaign against Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. He was scuttling a trip to Mayan ruins here Wednesday morning in favor of a national security meeting on Libya. The president is returning to Washington on Wednesday a couple of hours earlier than scheduled. Obama promised a new partnership across Central America to increase trade and economic growth, target drug trafficking and create opportunities so that people can find work in their home countries and “don’t feel like they have to head north to provide for their families.” He also said anew he would push for a comprehensive reform of immigration laws in the United States, including a “pathway to get right by the law” for those who live in the country illegally. But that volatile issue is stalled in Congress and shows no signs of

About 2.8 million Salvadoran immigrants living in the United States sent home $3.5 billion last year, so laws that crack down on immigrants can significantly affect the Salvadoran economy. Obama said Republicans who now exert greater control in Washington were more reluctant than in the past to engage in comprehensive reform, but added, “I am confident that ultimately we are going to get it done.” Obama’s trip was designed to show an engagement in the Americas, create markets for U.S. goods and build up relations with democratic nations whose political support the United States needs in coping with security threats, climate woes and energy prices.

Daly City celebrates centennial
Daly City dignitaries and politicians gathered at City Hall Tuesday evening for the first of several celebrations to be held marking 100 years since the city’s incorporation. State Sen. Leland Yee, Assemblywoman Fiona Ma and a half-dozen former mayors, including San Mateo County Supervisor Adrienne Tissier, joined residents and current city councilmembers at the Daly City centennial kick-off, Assistant City Manager Joseph Curran said. Tonight’s celebration included a rendition of “God Bless America” by local singer Fatima Yusef David, a presentation of a congressional resolution from U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier’s office and a musical performance by the Daly City All Stars band, Curran said. The kick-off also featured the debut of a color guard from the Daly City Police Department and free cake for everyone. “It’s about as good a party you can give for zero dollars,” Curran said. Other plans for the city’s centennial year include creating a self-guided walking tour of local landmarks, renaming a portion of John Daly Boulevard “Centennial Way,” and holding a bowling celebration at one of the city’s two bowling alleys.

Emotional hearing for San Carlos man’s sentencing
By Dan McMenamin
BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

A San Carlos man was sentenced Tuesday to a year in jail for the one-punch death of another man outside AT&T Park during a San Francisco Giants game in 2008. Taylor Buckley, 20, was sentenced at a tearfilled hearing in San Francisco Superior Court this morning that drew dozens of family members and friends of the victim, 18-year-old Anthony Giraudo, as well as Buckley’s family and friends. Buckley agreed to a plea deal last month on an involuntary manslaughter charge for sucker-punching Giraudo during an argument outside the stadium during a Giants game on May 9, 2008. Giraudo, a baseball player who was a student at Cañada College in Redwood City, fell and struck his head on the pavement, and died the next day at San Francisco General Hospital.

His father, Bob Giraudo, spoke at Tuesday’s sentencing, calling the death “senseless.” “There are no words to express the pain my family feels,” he said. Buckley had been out of custody on bail until pleading guilty on Feb. 10, and Giraudo’s mother, Sherri, described getting late-night phone calls on several occasions from friends who were “hysterical” after seeing Buckley out at parties and concerts. Five friends of the Giraudo family also spoke at the hearing, with many saying the sentence was too light and admonishing Buckley for his actions, causing Buckley’s mother at one point to storm out of the courtroom. Before being sentenced, Buckley tearfully apologized to the Giraudos. “I’m sorry, I truly am,” he said while choking back tears. Buckley’s attorney, Douglas Horngrad, pointed out that more than 40 letters were submitted to the court by Buckley’s family and

friends vouching for his character. “This is not a time for bitterness or anger,” he said. However, Judge James Collins said, “The Taylor Buckley in the letters is different from the Taylor Buckley in the probation report,” which showed a young man who was violent and disrespectful and “always with alcohol on board.” Collins sentenced Buckley to a year in county jail, with 47 days’ credit for time served, and five years’ probation. He added a stipulation requiring that Buckley “not have a drop of alcohol” during the probation period. Buckley will also have to repay the state more than $9,000 in restitution that it paid to Giraudo’s family. Collins said he hopes Tuesday’s hearing “gives some closure to everybody.”

SAN FRANCISCO — A judge has temporarily halted the nation’s most ambitious program to give power plants, utilities and other polluters financial incentives to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. San Francisco Superior Court Judge Ernest Goldsmith ruled Friday that state air quality regulators failed to properly consider alternatives to their so-called cap-and-trade program, a key piece of California’s landmark global warming law, AB 32. Goldsmith ruled that the failure to consider alternatives violated state environmental law, so the California Air Resources Board must conduct further review before implementing the plan. The board adopted the plan in December. Environmental justice groups brought the legal challenge because they say the program would allow polluters who are primarily located in poor neighborhoods to continue polluting by buying carbon credits from projects elsewhere. Air Resources Board spokesman Stanley Young said the board would

Ice pick stabbing leads to trial
The Pacifica man accused of stabbing his girlfriend’s exboyfriend in the head with an ice pick after encountering the couple at the beach was held to answer for attempted murder after a preliminary hearing on the evidence. Arthur John Armstrong, 37, is also charged with assault and the special allegations of using a knife and causing great bodily injury in the Nov. 15 attack. After the hearing with three prosecution witnesses and no defense, a judge found sufficient evidence to try Armstrong and ordered him back to court Arthur April 5 to enter a Superior Court plea. Armstrong Armstrong remains in custody on no-bail status on which he’s been held since allegedly attacking the 39-year-old victim. Armstrong and the victim met up after they separately headed to the same beach area near the pier to drink with their respective girlfriends. Armstrong’s exgirlfriend is now dating the victim. After the alleged assault, Armstrong and his girlfriend left and the victim realized he was bleeding. He gave a statement to police before passing out and medics discovered he had a slash to his knee and blood from his ear. An ice pick was discovered in nearby bushes. Armstrong he reportedly told authorities after his arrest he did nothing beyond physically assaulting the man.

appeal Goldsmith’s ruling. The judge wrote that the board should not have adopted its cap-and-trade plan before completing a more extensive environmental review required by the California Environmental Quality Act. Therefore, the board cannot certify a document known as the “scoping plan” for AB 32 — which seeks to reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020 — until it completes the analysis. “Because it did not proceed in a manner required by law, ARB abused its discretion,” Goldsmith wrote. California’s cap-and-trade program works by giving a polluter, such as a utility or a refinery, a permit from the state that lets it send a specified amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse

gases into the air. If a company emits less than its allotted amount of pollution, it can sell its unused “carbon credits” in a marketplace. Polluters can even make a profit if demand for the permits is high and their prices exceed the initial cost. The plaintiffs argued that the air board failed to look at alternatives because officials had already made up their minds to implement cap-and-trade. “ARB was dogmatic in its focus on cap-and-trade even though it is not effective in reducing greenhouse gases, increases pollution in heavily polluted low-income communities and communities of color,” said Bill Gallegos, executive director of Communities for a Better Environment, a plaintiff in the case.

Clerks say time is running out for tax vote
SACRAMENTO — County elections officials on Tuesday warned that time is running short and the Legislature should act by the end of the week if it wants a June 21 special election asking voters to extend temporary tax hikes. Gov. Jerry Brown and Democratic lawmakers have indicated they would like to hold the election in June before families take summer vacations and before the temporary tax increases enacted two years ago expire. So far, the Democratic governor has been unable to persuade any Republican lawmakers to sign on to his election proposal, which is part of his plan to close California’s $26.6 billion budget deficit.

Sketch released of attempted kidnapper
Redwood City police released a sketch of a man who attempted to kidnap a 14-year-old girl Monday afternoon, police officials said. The girl was walking in the 100 block of Arch Street at around 4:30 p.m. when a man drove his car into a driveway, blocking her path. The suspect opened the door of his car, threatened the girl and ordered her into his car. The girl refused and the suspect drove away. The man, described as a white man in his 40s, with short gray hair and a heavyset build, was last seen driving east on Hopkins Avenue, police said. The man’s car was described as a newer model, gray, four-door sedan, with dry cleaning hanging in the driver side rear window, police said. Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to call the Redwood City police at 780-7100.

OAKLAND — Witnesses on Tuesday recalled a horrific scene after an Oakland journalist was shot and killed nearly four years ago. Among the witnesses at the trial of two men accused of killing Oakland Post editor Chauncey Bailey was the first police officer to respond. “He was missing part of his face, his head,” Oakland police Officer Trent Thompson testified in Alameda County Superior Court during the second day of the trial. The testimony gave jurors snapshots of the moments before and after Bailey was gunned down in downtown Oakland on

Aug. 2, 2007. Similar testimony was expected Wednesday. Former Your Black Muslim Bakery leader Yusef Bey IV and co-defendant Antoine Mackey, both 25, are accused Chauncey of murder in the case. Bailey The suspects also are being tried in the July 2007 murders of two other men, Odell Roberson Jr., 31, and Michael Wills, 36. Bailey, 57, had been investigating the once-influential and now-defunct nonprofit bakery’s financial woes and infighting when he was killed.

Dozens of citations issued in pedestrian decoy
Police made 93 enforcement stops and issued 77 citations for pedestrian right of way violations in Belmont yesterday. The Belmont Police Department, in cooperation with several other agencies, held a joint pedestrian decoy operation yesterday from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at El Camino Real and Fifth Avenue, El Camino Real and Ruth Avenue, Ralston Avenue and Elmer Street, Ralston Avenue and Maywood Drive and Ralston and Villa avenues. The goal of the operation was to raise driver awareness of pedestrians, according to police. Five plain clothes “decoys” crossed at intersections, in marked crosswalks. There was one traffic collision during the operation, at Ralston and Villa avenues, when a driver stopped for a pedestrian who had not yet stepped off the curb, was rear ended by another vehicle, according to police.

Snipers, shells, tanks terrorize Libyan city
By Hadeel Al-Shalchi and Ryan Lucas
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TRIPOLI, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi’s snipers and tanks are terrorizing civilians in the coastal city of Misrata, a resident said, and the U.S. military warned Tuesday it was “considering all options” in response to dire conditions there that have left people cowering in darkened homes and scrounging for food and rainwater. The U.S. is days away from turning over control of the air assault on Libya to other countries, President Barack Obama said. Just how that will be accomplished remains in dispute: Obama spoke Tuesday with British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy in hopes of quickly resolving the squabble over the transition. Gadhafi, meanwhile, made his first public appearance in a week, promising enthusiastic supporters at his residential compound in Tripoli, “In the short term, we’ll beat them, in the long term, we’ll beat them.” Libyan state TV broadcast what it said was live coverage of Gadhafi’s

less-than-five-minute statement. Standing on a balcony, he denounced the coalition bombing attacks on his forces. “O great Libyan people, you have to live now, this time of glory, this is a time of glory that we are living,” he said. State TV said Gadhafi was speaking from his Bab Al-Aziziya residential compound, the same one hit by a cruise missile Sunday night. Reporters were not allowed to enter the compound as he spoke. Heavy anti-aircraft fire and loud explosions sounded in Tripoli after nightfall, possibly a new attack in the international air campaign that so far has focused on military targets. One of Gadhafi’s sons may have been killed, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told ABC News on Tuesday.

WASHINGTON — The four-day air assault in Libya will soon achieve the objectives of establishing a no-fly zone and averting a massacre of civilians by Moammar Gadhafi’s troops, President Barack Obama said Tuesday, adding that despite squabbling among allies, the United States will hand off control of the operation to other countries within days. “When this transition takes place, it is not going to be our planes that are maintaining the no-fly zone,“ the president said at a news conference in El Salvador as he neared the end of a Latin American trip overshadowed by events in Libya. ”It is not going to be our ships that are necessarily enforcing the arms embargo. That’s precisely what the other nations are going to do.“ Obama said he has “absolutely no doubt” that a non-U.S. command

entity can run the operation, although perhaps the most obvious candidate — the NATO military alliance — has yet to sort out a Barack Obama political agreement to do so. The president said NATO was meeting to “work out some of the mechanisms.” Despite the cost — not only in effort, resources and potential casualties, but also in taxpayer dollars — Obama said he believes the American public is supportive of such a mission. “This is something that we can build into our budget. And we’re confident that not only can the goals be achieved, but at the end of the day the American people are going to feel satisfied that lives were saved and people were helped,” he said.

Israeli strike misses target, kills four Palestinians
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Israeli military shelling aimed at Palestinian militants missed its target Tuesday, killing three children and their uncle and wounding 13 other family members as they played soccer in their backyard in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian officials said. The attack, which Israel said was a mortar strike, was launched in response to repeated rocket fire toward Israel. It dramatically escalated a recent round of simmering violence with Palestinian militants and threatened to set off the first heavy fighting in more than two years. Israel and Gaza’s ruling Hamas militant group have largely observed a cease-fire since an Israeli military offensive ended early 2009.

Power lines up in progress at Japan nuclear plant

FUKUSHIMA, Japan — Workers at a leaking nuclear complex hooked up power lines to all six of its reactor units, but other repercussions from a massive earthquake and tsunami still rippled across Japan as economic losses mounted at three flagship companies. The progress on the electrical lines at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant was a welcome and significant advance Tuesday after days of setbacks. With the power lines connected, officials hope to start up the overheated plant’s crucial cooling system that was knocked out during the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan’s northeast coast. Tokyo Electric Power Co. warned

that workers still need to check all equipment for damage first before switching the cooling system on to all the reactor units — a process that could take days or even weeks. Late Tuesday night, Tokyo Electric said lights went on in the central control room of Unit 3, but that doesn’t mean power had been restored to the cooling system. Officials planned to try to power up the unit’s water pumps later Wednesday.

Emergency crews also dumped 18 tons of seawater into a nearly boiling storage pool holding spent nuclear fuel at Unit 2, cooling it to 122 degrees Fahrenheit (50 degrees Celsius), Japan’s nuclear safety agency said. Steam, possibly carrying radioactive elements, had been rising for two days from the reactor building, and the move lessens the chances that more radiation will seep into the air. Added up, the power lines and concerted dousing bring authorities closer to ending a nuclear crisis that has complicated the government’s response to the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami that killed an estimated 18,000 people. Its power supply knocked out by the disasters, the Fukushima complex has leaked radiation that has found its way into vegetables, raw milk, the water supply and even seawater.

plained he wasn’t allowed to order room service. During the time authorities say Stansbury was breaking the law by collecting aid, he did appear in San Mateo County Superior Court Sept. 20 to move a trial date on a pending misdemeanor case of theft out of Millbrae. On Sept. 15, the District Attorney’s Office also received notice Stansbury was named in a misdemeanor petty theft case out of San Bruno. Stansbury’s plea deal spared him trial on several more felonies including other counts of identity theft and grand theft. The settlement also added him to the roster of others serving time or awaiting trial for taking advantage of aid offered after the fire. Angela Marie Wise, 46, of San Francisco, was sentenced to a year in jail for trying to pilfer $1,000 in aid by falsely claiming housing and “food damage” at a home where she didn’t live. Jacqueline Antoinette Turner, 24, of San Francisco, falsely claimed to be a found a loaded 9 mm pistol inside. The bag also held two bags containing 15 dime bags of marijuana and Walls’ cellphone contained text messages indicating drug sales, according to the District Attorney’s Office. Walls allegedly told the officer the gun belonged to a friend in San Francisco and that the marijuana was for his personal use. At Walls’ arraignment, he pleaded not guilty and did not waive his right to a speedy trial. He returns to court for a preliminary hearing April 4 with a onehour estimate. Bail was set at $100,000 and he remains in custody. This was not the first gun-related victim of the San Bruno fire and asked aid workers for “everything they offered.” She was sentenced to 30 days in county jail for second-degree burglary. Niesha Marie Taylor, 26, has pleaded not guilty to fraud and will stand trial in September. Her alleged accomplice Deonte Jerome Bennett, 25, remains wanted on a $100,000 arrest warrant for failing to appear at his original arraignment. Both are accused of using addresses within the disaster zone found on the Internet to try receiving new identification from Department of Motor Vehicles so they could then qualify for aid from Pacific Gas and Electric. Two others charged in the same case, Lisa Monique Justin, 42, and Sonya Smith, 44, received credit for time served plus probation and community service.

Is there a Plan B to the state budget?
t is becoming abundantly clear that Plan A on the $26.6 billion California budget deficit is no longer working. Plan A, as proposed by Gov. Jerry Brown in January, was to make billions in cuts, eliminate redevelopment agencies and ask voters to pass tax extensions June 7 to avoid large cuts to education. The state Legislature made some headway last week with part of the budget by agreeing to make $7.4 billion in cuts to CalWorks, services for the developmentally disabled, the state’s health insurance program for the poor and other areas by shifting money away from local communities to programs normally paid for by the state’s general fund. Other cuts, including the elimination of the state’s redevelopment agencies, did not obtain the votes needed. And the granddaddy of them all, a proposal to place a measure on the June ballot to extend temporary personal income, sales and vehicle tax cuts to raise $12.5 billion, doesn’t seem to be getting anywhere. California Republicans were busy meeting

Editorial
this past weekend and an attempt to label a traitor any of their party who compromised with Brown did not succeed. There was new hope this week as attention has turned from the so-called “GOP 5” to Senate Minority Leader Bob Dutton, R-Rancho Cucamonga, who would seem to have more pull with his party. Yet still, no deal. And it is becoming clearer there won’t be any deal, because there is not equal leverage. California’s minority party simply does not want a tax extension measure on the ballot and, by doing nothing, its members succeed. This inaction caused Brown to miss his self-imposed deadline to place the tax extension measure on the June 7 ballot and there is talk that legislators could push that further back in June. In the meantime, there is also hope that the May Revise of the budget may have better revenue numbers than what was revealed in January. But that kind of hope is futile. There is no way the new numbers would show $12.5 billion in extra revenue, and if it did, there is no way liberal Democrats would not want some of it to fill in cuts they just approved. As long as we have the current system, a minority of legislators will hold out for what they believe and that means no taxes, but rather cuts. For someone who touted his government experience when running for the state’s highest office, Brown was exceedingly naive to think it would be easy to budge the elephants in the capitol. By pushing the legislative path to place the tax extension measure on the June ballot, Brown all but gave up on the initiative path for it outside of both houses of the Legislature. It was all-in on a gamble that doesn’t seem to be working. Brown proposed a no-nonsense budget that did not rely on the shell games and smoke and mirrors of the past. Plan A is still alive, but it is dying a slow death for all to see. You simply cannot set a deadline,

then move it once it’s not met. The longer this charade continues in Sacramento, the less faith the voting population will have in the measure itself. It is time to start working on a real Plan B, not revisions to the failing Plan A. There may be a loophole to be exploited that would allow the Legislature to place a measure on the ballot with a majority vote instead of two-thirds. But that would not necessarily fly with the electorate and those concerned with the precedent it would set. Another option outlined yesterday was pushing for an initiative for the November ballot, which if passed, would provide money to plug holes created by this budget. That, however, is a mistake. It will only lead to prolonged uncertainty for schools and small governments who are already playing the waiting game. When you are dealing with layoffs and public services, just how does one plug that back in once cut? Brown already played his hand and lost. Now, Plan B is looking like Plan A 2.0 — with more months of uncertainty and pain.

Letters to the editor
A good time for good deeds
Editor, Note to Jerry Brown. I would like to suggest that you have the unions send the $30 million for your campaign to a job creation project or to education. You succeeded last time on performance and promises, and you won’t need the money next time if you do the right things to improve the situation. This would stop people thinking you owe the unions even more fat pay, pensions, health care and sweet deals. It would also help the big union bosses improve their reputation for putting personal greed above the public good. It is a tough job you asked for, and we wish you good luck. As you indicated, at your age, it does seem like a good time for good deeds. tant things like education, several social programs and services, as well as cut some salaries and wages of hard-working state and federal employees including school teachers. First, I would like to say that I am a proud Republican, so before we start throwing blame, the Democratic Party was also going to do the same thing in regards to the cutbacks. Our problem in this country is that Americans are just plain sick and tired of the blame game between the Democrats and Republicans, what Americans want is a brand-new political party that will help solve our serious financial problems and get our country moving forward instead of the childish and immature fighting and battling that does not help at all in helping find answers and solutions to all our serious problems. Folks, the entire system needs to be revamped. having the testosterone and speaking out about the wasted money, our money, on the Emmett House relocation (“Waste of redevelopment money” letter to the editor in the March 19 edition of the Daily Journal). This was a feel-good project from beginning to end driven by a few people that were well intentioned but misguided. Spending over $2 million on a housing unit for two families with tax money under the pretense of “preserving our history” shows how easily misspending our money can go.

‘Crazy World’
Editor, The media reported recently that peaceful protesters in Damascus were quickly dispersed by armed officers and 36 were arrested. This is how Syria deals with the slightest protest of its despotic institutions. In Israel, the citizens are guaranteed the right to hold such demonstrations on a regular basis. The citizens of Israel are protected by rules of law and the complete range of democratic institutions. In addition, Israel is often the first to offer aid to other nations in need, such as Haiti and Japan. It is Israel that has made valuable contributions in the fields of medicine and science. It is Israel whose artists travel around the world to bring joy to the international community. Despite all this, there are those among us who want Israel delegitimized. Not Syria, whose record of international contributions is zip, nada, zero. Is this a crazy world?

magine the desperation of a million people caught in San Francisco and the northern Peninsula with no way out ... and no way in for emergency workers and supplies. Liquefaction or slippage has closed each of the six major entrances to San Francisco and the northern Peninsula — the Golden Gate Bridge approach in the Marina, the Bay Bridge approach in Oakland, the Bayshore Freeway in Brisbane, Interstate 280 along the former Alemany Marsh, Skyline Boulevard along the Pacific and the three-generation old mud-supported runways at San Francisco International Airport. Water mains from the Sierra are out of commission. Local water mains are damaged and incapable of taking up the slack. Supermarkets are closed. Gasoline pumps won’t work. Emergency help is needed. San Francisco and the northern Peninsula and their one million daytime population would be largely unreachable by outside rescue personnel and critical supplies, exactly as a report in the Chronicle last weekend described Japan: “A day after the earthquake and tsunami, entire towns remained impossible to reach.” With roads gone, the only way of helping most survivors in northern Japan is via airlift. It doesn’t take a great leap of faith to imagine San Francisco and the northern Peninsula in need some day — geologists say it’s only a matter of time — and finding that San Francisco International Airport can’t handle its most important job ever because no one ever insisted on building a seismically secure runway. For decades, the runway question has been simply one of saving fish and shorelines versus filling the Bay. The time for that myopic equation is past. The question now must change to what we can do to protect our people — environmentalists as well as others — after the next big quake. Can we in good conscience argue in favor of putting a million people at risk when there is no need to? If fish could really be saved and shorelines protected, that would be nice; but fish have certain life spans and they will all die naturally or be eaten by bigger fish or thrown upon the land by an earthquake. Shorelines, no matter how many billions are spent on them and no matter how many runways are not built, will be washed away or split away by Mother Nature at a time of her choosing. Example: Japan. There is now no dependable way of receiving outside help by the only feasible method, air transport. SFO needs a seismically secure runway to handle that emergency if ever it occurs. All environmental studies were completed a decade ago at a cost of $70 million. With only $3 million remaining to be spent to publish and certificate the results, a now-retired supervisor single-handedly stopped the project as a gesture to some of his constituents. Reportedly the study failed to find any harm to the Bay or aquatic life from a new runway. Now that San Francisco has a new mayor and the old supervisor is gone, Mayor Ed Lee and the Airport Commission should get together immediately and finish the environmental study and get rolling on a seismically secure runway at SFO. Everyone’s lives may depend on it.

The agency is responsible for the Medicaid benefits of almost 300,000 people and processes about 12 million claims per year, HP said. HP administers about $95 billion in benefits each year, the company said, making it the largest provider of Medicaid and Medicare process management services.

SAN FRANCISCO — When Leo Apotheker took over as CEO of HewlettPackard Co. four months ago, he inherited a position plagued with scandal. His two predecessors, Mark Hurd and Carly Fiorina, were both ousted from one of the most prominent and troubled jobs in technology. He’s now charged with leading HP past several troubled chapters in its history, while tying together the far-flung parts of a conglomerate that’s under pressure about its growth prospects. Q: What’s the most surprising thing you’ve discovered about HP? A: When you join a company like HP, it’s always a bit overwhelming because the breadth and the depth of the company is incredible. And what keeps on surprising me is that it seems I discover, every day almost, new things that are popping up in the company that I didn’t know the day before. That is probably the reason it was so important we were finally able to articulate an overarching vision. Q: You inherited a company in the midst of absorbing a lot of acquisitions. How much of your strategy diverts from, or dovetails with, your predeces-

sor’s strategy? A: That’s a delicate subject. Let me just put it this way: I think it was time for HP to have an articulated, strong vision about where the industry is going, and what HP’s Leo Apotheker role in it is going to be. Q: How do you approach growing a company the size of HP? Is there a detriment to being too big? Some analysts are worried about HP’s ability to grow at a meaningful rate. A: People associate growth with high growth rates, percentages. That’s understandable and certainly an applicable metric if you are small or smaller than HP. If you take a company like HP and you grow 5 percent, 4 percent, make it 1 percent, which as a percentage doesn’t sound like much, but when you look at the absolute number, it’s pretty substantial. If you’re focused on the 5 percent, you’d say that’s not much. If you focus on the fact that’s $6.5 billion, you’d say that’s quite a lot. If we grow by $6-$7 billion dollars, we basically add a Fortune 200 company every year — it’s not too bad.

Business brief
Airlines whipsawed by costly fuel, Japan disaster
DALLAS — Already struggling with high fuel prices, the big U.S. airlines now face a drop in demand for flights to Japan, a lucrative route and gateway for travel to Asia. The airlines’ response: They’re raising fares and eliminating unprofitable flights. Delta Air Lines Inc. said Tuesday it will reduce flying to Japan by up to 20 percent through May because of falling demand as the country recovers from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Delta said the cuts will cost it $250 million to $400 million in lost profit. Delta will also reduce flying across the Atlantic and within the United States in the second half of this year. It won’t grow as much as planned in Latin America and the Pacific.

SAN FRANCISCO — Apple Inc. CEO Steve Jobs, who is currently out on medical leave, will be deposed to testify in an antitrust suit related to its iPod music players and iTunes store. In a Monday filing in the U.S. district court for the Northern District of California in San Jose, Magistrate Judge Howard R. Lloyd ordered Jobs could answer questions for two hours about RealNetworks Inc.’s Harmony technology. This technology was rolled out in 2004 and briefly allowed songs sold by RealNetworks’ online music store to be played on iPods, despite Apple’s use at the time of encryption technology to prevent this. Apple issued an iPod and iTunes software update shortly thereafter that disabled this interoperability. The court found that “Jobs has unique, non-repetitive, firsthand knowledge” about the issue, the

Steve Jobs

judge said. The order stems from a 2005 class action suit led filed against Apple, led by Thomas Slattery, alleging Apple’s use of FairPlay encryption technology gave it a monopoly on the digital player and audio

download markets. Before 2009, Apple used FairPlay on songs bought from its iTunes music store to stop users from making unauthorized copies of tracks. FairPlay limited the playing of these songs to iPods, which meant users with other types of digital music players could not play them, and made it so that other digital music purchases with their own copy-preventing encryption couldn’t be played on an iPod.

Cougars open with road win
By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

It appears pitching and defense will be at premium this high school baseball season if the Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division opener between Half Moon Bay and San Mateo is any indication. Following Half Moon Bay’s 3-2, eightinning win over San Mateo on a blustery, cold afternoon that featured a total of 10 hits, both managers — Half Moon Bay’s Steve Terraszas and Aragon’s Jesse Velez — believe that the new bat regulations to make them safer may have taken some of the sting out of offenses. “A lot of it (sluggish offense) is the new bat,” Velez said. “You can see the ball not going as far. I expect everything to be low scoring.” On this day, however, more credit should go to the pitchers, who kept the offense in check. Both starting pitchers — Half Moon Bay’s Julian Garcia and San Mateo’s Matt Erlick — were both on top of their game Tuesday. Erlick worked the first seven innings and seemed destined to take a 2-0 loss in regulation, before San Mateo rallied for two runs in the bottom of the seventh to send the game into extra innings. Erlick, given a second chance, could not shut down the Cougars, who scratched out a go-ahead run in the top of the eighth after two outs, ending Erlick’s day at 118 pitches. Garcia one-upped Erlick.

Banner year for Bonomo

Softball set to begin this week
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

Some soccer players just have “It.” Those who follow the sport have yet to actually properly identity what “It” is, name it, label it, bottle it up and sell it on the black market. But make no mistake about it, a player with “It” stands out. Burlingame’s Stefano Bonomo is one of those players gifted with “It,” a soccer sense that isn’t bestowed upon everyone. This past year, the senior midfielder lit up the Peninsula Athletic League with a combination of speed, strength, control and finesse that led the Panthers all the way to a second place finish in the Central Coast Section playoffs, a goal away from a title. Having missed his junior season due to scheduling conflicts, Bonomo returned to don Burlingame red and white, leaving a lasting impression on those who had the opportunity to see him use “It” to dominate the PAL. And he did it while missing a couple of games at the beginning and end of the season. Yet Bonomo’s presence was such that even with those gaps, he stood above and beyond the rest of the soccer world in 2011. “The first day that I saw him lace up the boots and get out there I knew this kid was something special,” said Burlingame coach Mike Sharabi. “I graduated from Burlingame, I was there in the glory years

when we won CCS and would go to finals and semifinals every year and I can say with full confidence that he’s the best player to come out of Burlingame high school.” Whoa, whoa whoa. The best? This from the guy who still holds the single season record for goals in a season and was a part of the last Panthers team to win a CCS title? “(The praise) is well deserved,” he said. Bonomo’s numbers won’t necessarily jump out at you, but the Daily Journal Male Soccer Player of the Year is one of those players that transcend the score sheet. Sixteen goals and 10 assists are totals surpassed by many a player in the PAL alone — but when considering his season, the senior’s impact can not be overstated. Bonomo made an already excellent Burlingame team elite. “For the best players, the game slows down,” Sharabi said. “They see things, they’re two, three steps ahead of everyone else. He’s one of those players. At times, he would have three guys on him and he was still able to be productive. And that’s saying something. He never went over the edge, he stayed composed. He’s just a wonderful player.” “I think this was the most accomplishing year I’ve had,” Bonomo said. “We made it to the (CCS) finals and overall I think it’s best high school season I could have had.” Bonomo’s coach agrees. “I think he had an exceptional year and

coming back to high school soccer was a really special thing for him,” Sharabi said. “Getting him back this season was a great bonus for the team and he’s just a fantastic player. He’s very hard working; he’s the kind of young man that the other boys gravitate towards on the field and off the field. And when we needed a goal, he came up with it, and when we needed him to make defensive plays, he did that as well. He was just a very big part of our success this season.” Bonomo’s season plays out like an extended highlight reel, with goals from everywhere on the field and passes that boggle the mind — pick a game and Bonomo left an imprint. “There were times this season where he wasn’t playing his best, but yet he was still dominating the opposition,” Sharabi said. “I’ve been around this game for 20 years, and he’s going places. “He was a pleasure to coach, a pleasure to have in the program,” Sharabi said. “I feel very fortunate for my first year as the varsity coach to have such a player. He was a great leader and I think this year we set the tone for what our program is going to be.” The road doesn’t stop here for Bonomo. He’s accepted a scholarship to play at Cal, where he plans to give the Pac-10 a dose of what he gave PAL fans this season. Whatever “It” may be.

The softball season gets into full swing beginning today with the Peninsula Athletic League, West Catholic Athletic League and West Bay Athletic Leagues all starting league play this week. Because of differences in spring breaks between high school districts, initial PAL games were played last week, but this is the first week all PAL teams will be in action, along with the WCAL and WBAL. There wasn’t really a shakeup in the PAL Bay Division last year. It was more of a revival. Hillsdale, a power in the early- to mid1990s, became a doormat for the better part of 15 years. But with a complete team led by pitcher Jordan Richwood, the Knights claimed the Bay Division championship and advanced to the Central Coast Section semifinals last season. Capuchino, a CCS power in the early 1990s and again in the early 2000s, pushed Hillsdale to the end, as did a strong Aragon team. Carlmont, the perennial Bay Division and CCS power, suffered through a down year in 2010. The Scots, however, should reinsert their name back in the championship conversation in 2011. The Bay Division could come down to a three-team race between Hillsdale, Capuchino and Carlmont. The Knights lost a lot of talent to graduation, but return the one of CCS’s best pitchers in Richwood. The Mustangs also have an unquestioned ace in Michele Pilster, who has gone pitch-for-pitch against Richwood.

“I know it doesn’t make a great story. Barry Bonds went to the grand jury and told the truth and did his best,” Ruby said. “That’s not a Barry Bonds m a d e - f o r - T V story.” On a day when federal agent Jeff Novitzky became the first witness to testify, saying Bonds’ grand jury account differed with other facts in the case, the contrast in stories and legal teams could not have been greater. While Ruby, a high-priced, high-profile defense lawyer, spoke in a booming baritone and painted Bonds as a victim over the course of an hour, Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew A. Parrella gave his 46-minute statement in a workmanlike monotone that had some jurors struggling to keep their heads up. His two best lines drew objections from Ruby that were sustained by U.S. District Judge Susan Illston. First, Parrella called BALCO founder Victor Conte, Bonds trainer Greg Anderson and Bonds “the three Musketeers of BALCO.” Then, Parrella said Bonds’ grand jury testimony was an “utterly ridiculous and unbelievable story.” After the opening statements, and with the jury out of the court room, Anderson walked in and passed Bonds, who turned his head away. Anderson repeated his long-standing refusal to testify against his childhood friend, was held in civil contempt by Illston, taken into custody by U.S. Marshals and escorted out a back door. This will be his fourth time in prison, his third for refusing to testify against Bonds, and he likely will be held until the end of the trial. The case is expected to last about a month. Anderson also served three months in prison and three months in home confinement for money laundering and steroids distribution from the original Bay Area Laboratory CoOperative (BALCO) case. Anderson’s plea in that instance happened in Greg Anderson 2005. Bonds’ trial is the last to stem from the BALCO investigation. Mark J. Geragos, Anderson’s lawyer, argued that additional sanctions would be “punitive rather than coercive,” which was ignored by Illston. Later, she instructed the jury that Anderson was unavailable and that jurors may not draw “any inference from his failure to testify.” Anderson was the go-between for Bonds in his contact with BALCO, and without his testimony to authenticate them, Illston excluded what the government said were three positive drug tests performed for the lab.

Anderson back to prison,Bonds’lawyer begins attack
By Ronald Blum
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO — With prosecutors saying Barry Bonds lied about using steroids, the home run king’s lead attorney started picking at the government’s case Tuesday, attacking witnesses expected to accuse Bonds of willfully taking drugs to make him hit the ball harder and farther. Defense lawyer Allen Ruby, his rich voice sometimes inflected with sarcasm, said in his opening statement that a former Bonds girlfriend, a former business partner and a former personal shopper only came forward against his client after the baseball star broke off relationships with them. He also insisted Bonds testified truthfully before a grand jury in December 2003 when he said he did not know he was using a pair of designer steroids. Bonds claims his trainer told him that he was taking “flaxseed oil” and “arthritic cream.”

isn’t testifying, the government will have a harder time proving the charges in Bonds’ indictment, which includes four counts of making false statements to the grand jury and one count of obstruction. Each count carries a penalty of up to 10 years, but federal guidelines recommend a sentence of 15-to-21 months. Bonds, wearing a dark suit as he did Monday, this time with a light blue shirt and a silver-blue tie, sat with hands clasped for much of the time during opening statements. He occasionally wrote out notes for his lawyers, and he sat slouched in his chair, his long legs crossed at the ankles and poking out the other side of the defense table. While much or all of the government’s evidence has been made public since Bonds’ indictment in December 2007, Ruby gave the clearest indication of the defense strategy: stick to the story Bonds told the grand jury and assail those implicating against him.

Oakland pounds Cincinnati

GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Coco Crisp and Daric Barton homered off Mike Leake, lifting the Oakland Athletics over the Cincinnati Reds 10-8 on Tuesday. Leake allowed seven runs in his worst spring outing. He also gave up two doubles among six Oakland hits in 2 1-3 innings. Leake made the Reds’ rotation by default when an MRI exam revealed inflammation in Johnny Cueto’s right shoulder. “I felt a little too good today,” Leake said. “I was just missing a little bit. I don’t like to walk people. I was trying a little too hard.” Leake made the jump from college baseball to the major leagues last year without pitching in the minors, but was competing with Homer Bailey and Travis Wood for two open spots in the rotation this season. Cueto’s injury cleared his way, but Leake doesn’t feel settled. “There’s still going to be a decision when he comes back. When the season

Daric Barton

starts I still have to compete,” Leake said. Brett Anderson, in line to be Oakland’s opening-night starter, gave up four runs and four hits in six innings. NL MVP Joey Votto and Jonny Gomes homered for

the Reds. Anderson was scheduled to start Monday, but rain forced cancellation of his outing against the Dodgers. “I felt good,” Anderson said after his longest stint of the spring. “Joey Vott is the best hitter of all-time and I have to get it through my head that I can’t beat Jonny Gomes with fastballs inside. I felt good it’s the best lineup I’ve faced yet and to go through it three times felt good.” Oakland manager Bob Geren is still open-minded about who will be on the mound against Seattle on April 1. “I’m leaving everything open right now,” Geren said. “I’ll see how everyone comes through the next start.” Votto also doubled and singled and

drove in four runs. “It’s about that time. You have to have some of your big boys swinging well at the end of spring and the beginning of the season, especially (Jay) Bruce, Votto and (Brandon) Phillips. Our starting guys are swinging good. Jonny Gomes is starting to swing a little better,” Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker said. Votto, a notoriously slow starter, increased his spring average to .324 with three home runs and a team-high 13 RBIs. Barton, Kurt Suzuki and Mark Ellis added doubles for the A’s. Barton has nine hits in his last 22 at-bats. NOTES: Oakland reliever Craig Breslow made his first Cactus League appearance. He had a strained left hamstring that had restricted him to minor league games. ... Reds closer Francisco Cordero has six straight scoreless appearances. ... Cincinnati’s projected starting lineup played all nine innings with the exception of Phillips, who played five. ... Drew Stubbs struck out four times against Oakland. “Stubby’s struggling a bit,” Baker said. “We’re going to DH him in some minor league games to get him extra at-bats.”

‘Pink Pony’back in the saddle again
By Janie McCauley
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — It used to be the spring training hot spot. Then, it was gone. Back in the day, the Pink Pony attracted the likes of Dizzy Dean, Mickey Mantle, Billy Martin — Ted Williams and Willie Mays, too. Baseball executives, scouts and scores of fans would flock to the Pony for food and refreshment after a long day at the diamond. This spring, the Pink Pony is open again — and not so different from before under new management. Mickey Morabito recently returned to the Pony hoping its new owners had maintained the ambiance that has made this place such a special stop for regulars at spring training year after year. The Oakland Athletics’ traveling secretary gave it a big thumbs-up. So did longtime A’s equipment manager Steve Vucinich. Nearly as big a deal as San

Francisco closer Brian Wilson’s bushy black beard and as talked about as Arizona and Colorado’s snazzy new training complex at Salt River Fields, the new Pink Pony is creating its own buzz this spring — in Arizona, anyway. The restaurant has a decades-old following, frequented by the regulars who are mostly baseball folk. It’s a Cactus League classic, a landmark in Old Town Scottsdale that is particularly popular in the month of March when a baseball-crazed clientele comes to town. The Pony’s doors reopened again Feb. 13 under new ownership after being closed for 1 1/2 years. The decor, with all the old pictures, those black booth seats and the familiar Pink Pony sign outside, is nearly the same. The steakhouse menu still features many of the old classic comfort foods like chicken pot pie and meatloaf, and the cuts of steak the Pony is so famous for — along with the staple sides of starches and salad, like the loaded baked potato.

The Pink Pony steakhouse was a Cactus League fixture for decades before closing in 2009. It is open again under new management and maintains the atmosphere that made it a spring-training hot spot.
One intriguing new addition: a grilled asparagus and fresh hearts of palm salad. “People driving down the street do a double take, ’Oh, it’s open again,”’ said bartender Jason Bonner, part of the latest Pony regime. “I poked my head in and had a cocktail now and then. This is new to me as well.” Danny Little and Tim Smith are the

new owners running the show. “They did a nice job on it,” said Morabito, in his 31st year with the A’s. “They kept the bats and the caricatures. The food was good. The key thing was they kept the charm and the feel of the place. A lot of the Pony was the people, the bartenders.” Bob Murch stopped by the Pony bar for a couple of beers and fried calamari on a recent Tuesday for his first return visit since the reopening. The 64-year-old Murch, who works for a general contractor and lives in nearby Paradise Valley, has been a Pony regular for about 30 years. He wasn’t sure the Pony would ever be back. “I think it’s worth bringing my wife back here,” said Murch, who grew up a baseball fan in St. Louis. Aside from some of the large collection of memorabilia that was auctioned off by the former owner, Gwen Briley, there haven’t been significant changes. Much of the baseball stuff is still there — bats on the walls, photos, a black San Francisco Giants flag.

Hall of Famer Taylor gets probation in sex case
By Jim Fitzgerald
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW CITY, N.Y. — The teenage girl at the center of the sex-crimes case against football great Lawrence Taylor made a surprise appearance at his sentencing Tuesday, eager to declare that he should be behind bars. She was denied the chance to speak in court, and Taylor was sentenced to

Lawrence Taylor

six years’ probation, as agreed when he pleaded guilty in January to sexual misconduct and patronizing an underage prostitute. The former New York Giants linebacker must register as a sex

offender, but a hearing on exactly how that will affect him was postponed to April 12. The girl arrived with celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, who described her as “a sex-trafficking victim.” The girl, now 17, has been identified in court and by Allred only by the initials C.F. Allred stood beside the girl at a news conference but later refused to reveal her name. She would not say whether the girl plans a lawsuit against Taylor

but said, “We look forward to representing her as she continues her fight for justice.” She said Taylor “should be in the hall of shame, not the Hall of Fame.” The girl was 16 — under the age of consent — when she met Taylor last May. Speaking outside the Rockland County Courthouse, she denied she was a prostitute and said another man, whom she called Rasheed, forced her to

go into Taylor’s Montebello hotel room by punching her in the face. She said Taylor should have been able to tell she had been beaten and that she was underage. “I believe Mr. Taylor could see my face and how young I was,” she said. “I did what he told me to do because I was afraid what would happen if I didn’t.” She added, her voice breaking, “I am upset that he will not go to jail for what he did to me.”

Other than that, Garcia had his way with the Bearcat lineup. “My curveball was making all the hitters (swing from) their back foot,” Garcia said. “That’s the best curveball (of the season), but definitely not my best (overall performance).” With Garcia mowing down the San Mateo hitters, it appeared the Cougars’ two-run fifth would be enough. With one out, Fama was hit by a pitch and didn’t wait long to steal second. He went to third on a Brett Berghammer sacrifice bunt, but the Cougars had runners at the corners after Erlick bobbled Berghammer’s bunt. Berghammer wasted no time in stealing second and, with Alex Jenkins at the plate, a wild pitch got past the San Mateo catcher, allowing Fama to hustle home with the first run of the game. Berghammer moved to third on the wild pitch and scored on Jenkins’ groundout to shortstop. Down to their last three outs, the Bearcats’ bats finally came alive. Omar Noriega hit a slow roller toward shortstop on Garcia’s first pitch of the seventh inning. The Half Moon Bay shortstop fielded the ball, but his low throw skipped by the first baseman and out of bounds to put Noriega on second. Erlick followed and, on an 0-1 pitch, hit an opposite-field single to There are still a couple of tournaments where the Tigers can hone their skills. Expect them to be playing their best toward the end of the season. The WBAL is still at a disadvantage against both the WCAL and PAL when it comes to depth of talent, but there is always some sprinkled about the 14-team, two-division league. Mercy-Burlingame is the exception to that rule. The Crusaders have enjoyed about a decade’s worth of high-level success and, as defending league champ, are the team to knock off. Mercy-Burlingame has been feast right. The Cougars’ right fielder attempted a diving catch on the fading drive and it skipped past him, driving in Noriega and putting Erlick on second with the tying run. Following a groundout, Manny Jois came to the plate and on a 1-0 pitch, singled sharply to center to drive in Erlick with the tying run. Half Moon Bay scored its winning run in similar fashion to San Mateo’s rally. Jenkins led off with a single to right-center field and promptly stole second. With two down, Peter Bacich came to the plate and on an 0-1 pitch, laced an opposite-field drive to right field. The San Mateo right fielder made an attempt at a diving catch — and also came up short — allowing Bacich to score from second. San Mateo had one last gasp in the bottom of the eighth. With two down, Semien drew a walk and moved to second on a wild pitch. Garcia, however, got a flyball to right to end the game. “That’s the way it’s been for us this season,” Velez said, adding that his team’s four previous games were also decided by one run. “The only reason we didn’t come out on top is because of where the ball bounced.”

threw a complete-game, 111-pitch gem. Garcia experienced a game usually reserved for a bullpen: He cruised through the first six innings, giving up just two hits and appeared destined for a shutout victory. Suddenly, he was looking at a nodecision in the face after giving up two runs in the bottom of the seventh. His teammates picked him up with the run in the eighth and Garcia saved his own game with a wobbly final three outs. “Those couple of hits (in the seventh) surprised me,” Garcia said. “I thought the game was over. You have to play seven innings.” Except for the one hiccup, Garcia was all but unhittable. He appeared just as strong in the eighth inning as he did the first or second. He finished with nine strikeouts against just one walk. The only hits he gave up through the first six innings were back-toback singles in the bottom of the third. R.J. Asuncion’s single to right field appeared to be enough to drive in Daryl Semien, who had reached on a flare to right and stole second. But Half Moon Bay right fielder Dominic Fama fired a two-hop strike to catcher Tony Carlevaris, who had plenty of time to pivot and and could ultimately be the deciding factor in determining who wins the crown. The Notre Dame-Belmont squad has gone through a lot since the end of last season, with George Silvey stepping down. The school hired his replacement — who in turn had to step down after a change in his job status. The Tigers then turned to a recently graduated Notre Dame de Namur University softball player to take over the reins. The Tigers opened league play against St. Ignatius Tuesday with not a lot of game action under their belts, with games against Burlingame and Carlmont rained out.

Carlmont is currently using a three-pitcher rotation, but look for freshman Rebecca Faulkner to see plenty of time in the pitcher’s circle. Coaches don’t have freshmen players on varsity to sit them on the bench. Given the strength of the Bay Division, however, any of the rest of the division has more than enough talent and experience. Burlingame and Half Moon Bay have taken their lumps during non-league play, but

both have played a rugged schedule that should have them prepared for the grind of the Bay Division. In the Ocean Division, the annual Sequoia-Woodside race was crashed by San Mateo last season. The two Redwood City teams have spent the last several seasons battling for the division’s lone CCS playoff berth. Last season, there was a three-way tie for first, with San Mateo joining the Redwood City party. Not much should change this season. The Bearcats and the Wildcats certainly have the pitching to carry either to the title. San Mateo’s Bailey Sutton and Woodside’s Ashley Miller are both strike-throwing machines

or famine during the non-league portion of its schedule so far this season. The Crusaders have either blown out opponents or been blown out themselves. But longtime coach Jim Henderson always sets up his team to be successful in league play. King’s Academy jumped up and grabbed Mercy’s attention last season, beating the Crusaders twice, so look for the Knights to be in the mix for a WBAL title as well. Castilleja will have a major hole to fill now that pitcher Sammy Albanese has taken her talents to Northwestern. She was one of the top pitchers in the state last year and her loss will be a significant blow to the Gators.

San Diego State’s Fisher not living in past
By Bernie Wilson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN DIEGO — Steve Fisher is living for the moment, just like his San Diego State Aztecs. Although he already has a long basketball resume that features a national title at Michigan, Fisher is excited all these years later to have the Aztecs in the NCAA round of 16 for the first time. As the No. 2-seeded Aztecs (34-2) prepare to meet the third-seeded UConn Huskies (28-9) on Thursday in Anaheim, Fisher could tell his players all sorts of stories from his many postseason coaching experiences. The Wolverines won the national title under Fisher in 1989, when Bo Schembechler famously declared that “A Michigan man is going to coach Michigan” after Bill Frieder accepted the Arizona State job on the eve of the tournament. When the Fab Five came along, the Wolverines reached consecutive national championship games, losing to Duke in 1992 and North Carolina in 1993. Michigan has vacated the records from both seasons because of

Steve Fisher

forward Chris We b b e r ’s involvement with booster Ed Martin. In 1994, Michigan made it to the regional final before losing to eventual national champi-

on Arkansas. Stories galore, right? “Not from me, no,” Fisher said. “I’m long past that era.” A dozen seasons into his SDSU tenure, he’s helping to write a new chapter at a school with precious little hoops history, a Midwestern transplant leading a team laden with Californians. Last Thursday, SDSU beat Northern Colorado for its first NCAA tournament victory in seven tries. Two days later, prior to a double-overtime victory against Temple, Fisher received a new lapel pin from tournament officials. “As I said on Saturday, it’s been 17 years since I put a pin on for the second round. And it felt good,” he said. What Fisher has accomplished at

SDSU is remarkable. Hired in 1999, two years after he was fired at Michigan, he inherited a sad-sack program that won only four games the previous season. His first team went 5-23, including 0-14 in the Mountain West and winless away from San Diego. He did get the Aztecs to the NCAA tournament in his third season, ending the school’s 16-year postseason drought. But the 13th-seeded Aztecs were shipped to Chicago and were routed 93-64 by Illinois. In 2003, SDSU got its first postseason victory, in the NIT. The Aztecs reached the NIT semifinals at Madison Square Garden in 2009 before losing to Baylor. Now they’re in the NCAAs in consecutive seasons for the first time ever, with their highest seed. They were No. 11 seeds in 2006, when they lost 87-83 to Indiana, and again last year, when they fell 62-59 to Tennessee. “I feel great. I’m excited to be a part of it. I’m proud that I’m part of something that hasn’t happened before,” said Fisher, who turns 66 on Thursday. “We’ve had tremendous support starting with Steve Weber, our president, and everybody around

with, ’What can we do to make your job effective? What can we do? What do you need?’ They’ve gone out of their way to try to help. Now that we’ve won, and this year won to the degree that we have, we’ve got a lot more people that are involved, in the arena, in the support group, and that feels good, too. “Everybody likes to be loved, and they’re loving this team right now. For me to be a part of it, it feels really good, for me, for the team, for everybody.” The 34 victories are eight more than the previous school single-season record and the Aztecs were nationally ranked this year for the first time ever. Their highest ranking in The Associated Press Top 25 was No. 4, and they were sixth in the final poll. Maybe that’s why Fisher doesn’t need to tell stories about his Michigan days. “He doesn’t really talk too much about being there with another team,” said forward Tim Shelton, one of five SDSU seniors. “He’s always talking about us, us, us, what we can do. Last week we were in there after the game, he was like, ’I haven’t been past the first round in like 17 years.’ He was

like, ’It feels good. It’s a new team, it’s a new experience for me, as well.’ He has a whole lot of confidence in us. “He’s enjoying it. That’s just a credit to what he does, building up a program.” Mountain West Conference rival BYU, which handed SDSU its only two losses, also advanced to the regionals. Despite the rivalry, Fisher and BYU coach Dave Rose have a mutual respect. “I think what he’s been able to do with that program, for that university, their students, the community, I’m really happy for him,” Rose said. “He’s a great coach and he had great success early in his career and then kind of just went off to do his own thing. Now he’s kind of got them back in the national spotlight and I’m really happy for him.” Fisher and Rose will be pulling for each other. “It’s kind of pleasing for our team and our staff that San Diego State is in the Sweet 16 because we know how good they are,” Rose said. “It’s nice to be able to show the rest of the country how good the teams in our league are.”

Roll out the ...bag-in-a-barrel?
By Michelle Locke
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Selling wine by the glass is hot, but having half-empty bottles left over is not, something that has prompted restaurants and bars to explore new delivery systems from sophisticated preservation devices to kegs that keep wine on tap. One of the latest variations on the theme has a back-to-the-future aspect: The wine is packaged in plastic bags similar to those used in boxed wines, but in this case the bag is housed in an elegant wooden barrel. “This is the reinterpretation of history,” says Jean-Charles Boisset, president of Boisset Family Estates. “We wanted to create something very unique for restaurants and hotels and eventually for someone at home.” Boisset Family Estates runs DeLoach Vineyards in the Russian River Valley region of Sonoma County, which has been selling what they call the barrel-to-barrel concept for more than a year, and recently launched the program at the company’s St. Helena-based Raymond Vineyards. As with boxed wines, the bagin-barrel approach comes with the advantage of not having to ship and recycle glass bottles. And the wine stays fresh longer. According to Boisset, the unfilled 10-liter bag weighs about 68 grams, 99 percent less than a nine-liter case

of empty glass bottles. So far, about 800 of the 10-liter barrels have been shipped to restaurants and bars. DeLoach also recently introduced a 3-liter version for home use. The Raymond wine, a cabernet sauvignon, is available only in the 10-liter size for now. At Chicago-based Wildfire Wine & Spirits, a small chain of steakand-seafood restaurants, director Brad Wermager said he was drawn to the concept because it was different and “we liked the idea that it was good for the environment.” Wildfire has 30 wines available by the glass and Wermager has considered buying wine in kegs, which is another way to save on bottle waste. He likes the fact that the barrel is something that can be put on display. “It’s a good conversation piece,” he says.

Report:U.S.wine sales top France

SAN FRANCISCO — For the first time ever, overall U.S. wine sales have topped the wine-loving French. It’s big news for vintners — on both sides of the Atlantic — but don’t break out the “We’re No. 1!” foam fingers just yet. In terms of per capita consumption, the French still are well ahead at an average 12.2 gallons per year compared to 2.6 gallons for the U.S. Still, many in the industry saw the figures, released this week by the San Francisco-based Wine Institute,

as an important step. “It’s exciting,” said Stephanie Gallo, vice president of marketing for Modesto-based Gallo Family Vineyards. “It’s great for the industry and it’s great for a whole host of reasons.” Why now? Part of the story is that as U.S. per capita consumption has risen, French consumption has fallen. In fact, U.S. wine consumption continued to grow during the recession, though many consumers switched to cheaper wines. “We just completed 17 straight years of growth in consumption of

Each shipment comes with a newsletter that provides information and background on the wines included. The Wine Exploration Club focuses on both domestic and international producers, and each shipment includes a red and a white. At $40 per shipment, this club is both the most popular and the least expensive. Ilana Drummond, a San Francisco resident and former colleague of Krause, initially purchased corporate gifts through Uncorked Ventures. Pleased, she signed up for the Wine Exploration Club herself. “It’s been great, absolutely,” said Drummond. “Now, we recognize different regions more, so when we go out and order wine, we have a better idea about what to get.” Drummond is also impressed with Krause and Aselstine for daring to open a business in such a volatile economic climate. “During this difficult economic time, they had the guts to open a new business,” she said. “Hopefully it will thrive. They’ve also been so generous with donations to different organizations.” Meanwhile, Americans also are paying increased attention to what’s on their plate, which has spurred equal interest in what’s in their glasses. “We’re actually becoming a nation that enjoys food culture,” said Gallo. “As people are embracing cooking and delicious meals, wine is a natural beverage that accompanies those meals.” The overall U.S. wine market grew 2 percent in 2010 to nearly 330 million cases, according to the Wine Institute report prepared by industry consultants Gomberg, Fredrikson & Associates in Woodside. That compares to nearly 321 million cases in France, said report author Jon Fredrikson. “All of a sudden, in terms of absolute volume, we’re the biggest in the world, which is a huge benchmark for those of us who’ve been around for a while,” he said. Looking at the value of those shipments, estimated retail was $30 billion, up 4 percent from The next tier is the Special Selections Wine Club, which features boutique wines from the West Coast. At $95, Each shipment typically contains two reds from wineries in California, Washington and Oregon. Saul Sarrett and his wife Camye made their first trip to wine country last summer from New York. The trip sparked Internet searches of different wine clubs and, about five months ago, the couple decided to join the Special Selections clubs. “It’s been great,” said Sarrett. “The proprietors have been very friendly, very helpful and responsive. When you go on vacation, they hold the shipment for you. Things like that. They’ve been a real pleasure to deal with.” At $195, The Reserve Selections Wine Club features wines from some of the most skilled winemakers on the West Coast, and often shipments include hard-to-find, rare wines. “Although quality is a big factor across the board, at the higher price points, you can really begin to develop your palate and appreciation for wine. It’s an opportunity to see differ2009. Wines from California accounted for a 61 percent volume share of the total U.S. wine market, with sales of nearly 200 million cases, up 1 percent from the previous year. Assessing the wine market is complicated because there are so many brands sold at so many outlets. The new report is based on trade shipments, meaning wine sold to regional wine distributors, restaurants, liquor stores, etc. Since none of those entities is likely to build up long-term inventory, the figures correlate closely to consumption. One vintner with a unique perspective on the new figures is Jean-Charles Boisset, president of Boisset Family Estates, a company with roots in Burgundy, France, that also owns a number of American properties. “Obviously we saw it coming for many years now,” said Boisset. “For us it’s very exciting news because we’ve always strongly believed that the U.S. is the place to be and being bicultural, being in both of the biggest markets in the

ences in the wines and to take a wine journey without leaving home,” said Krause. “It’s about granting access.” While Uncorked Ventures operates out of a warehouse in San Mateo, the company ships all over the United States. During the holidays, there is an uptick in shipments, with local residents wanting to give family and friends in the rest of the country a taste of renowned California wines. “I’ve lived here over 10 years, and it’s nice to be rooted in the community and involved in fundraising for local schools,” said Krause. Uncorked Ventures has no storefront for customers to visit, but Krause and Aselstine pride themselves on being accessible, both online and over the phone. “We really try to make ourselves available to customers, and to take customer suggestions,” said Krause. “When you call, you deal directly with the owners. We’re not parsing that out.” To learn more about Uncorked Ventures visit www.uncorkedventures.com. world is not only exciting, but at the same time allowing us to really read world consumers well.” The new report doesn’t mean troubles are over for high-end producers, some of whom have struggled as the recession sapped winebuyers’ budgets. But since the 2.6 gallons per capita U.S. figure amounts to a little more than a case a year, or a bottle a month, that means there is a large potential market yet to be tapped, said Kevin Morrisey, winemaker at Ehlers Estate, a boutique winery in the Napa Valley. “There are so many people out there who are just starting to become acquainted with these terrific California wines,” he said. “There should be more than enough people to drink everything we can possibly produce.” But no one is predicting that U.S. per capita consumption is likely to rival the French anytime soon. “It’s too big of a gap,” said Gillespie.

connections with winemakers. The duo travel to the wine country about once every month, tracking down great wines — often with help from the winemakers themselves. “Wine professionals are good-natured and they refer each other,” said Krause. “It’s amazing how small a network it actually is.” For instance, recent phone conversations and email exchanges with Maybach Family Vineyards proved particularly beneficial. The winery referred Krause to Mike Smith of Quivet Cellars, which sources its grapes from Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, and makes its wine at Envy Winery in Calistoga. Uncorked Ventures included Quivet Cellar’s 2008 cabernet in one of their wine club shipments. Customers belonging to one of the three wine clubs receive shipments monthly or quarterly, depending on the option they select.

table wine in the United States, which is really an incredible record,” said John Gillespie, president of the Wine Market Council, a trade association based in the Napa Valley. Another factor was the introduction of lesserknown varieties, such as moscato, a sweeter white wine that has seen a big boost in popularity in the U.S. Gallo sees the appeal of that wine as dovetailing with another trend, the rise of wine-lovers among the millennial generation — people born after 1980. “What we’re seeing is that they’re turning to wine as their preferred alcoholic beverage of choice and they are interested in more approachable, slightly sweet, aromatic wines like moscato,” she said.

sight on store shelves. Still, Raymond winemaker Stephanie Putnam admits she had some qualms about the new packaging. “Of course I did,” she says with a laugh. “But I think we have really worked hard on trying to keep the wine as fresh as possible. We’re bottling the wine every three months, that way we’re really keeping it fresh and vibrant for the consumer.”

At the Captain’s Tavern in Miami, Bill Bowers who owns the restaurant with wife Audrey, put the DeLoach barrel in about four months ago and “we’ve had good luck with it,” he says. The only problem is that due to state regulations he can only get the 3-liter bags, which means on a busy night the bag has to be changed and, when the level drops, the glass can take a while to fill. Still, “the quality of the wine is excellent and the taste of the wine is excellent and people like it very much,” he says. Leslie Sbrocco, wine author and founder of ThirstyGirl.com sees the bagin-barrel program as part of a general

evolution of wine packaging as the industry and consumers have gotten used to more than the traditional bottle and cork. In addition to wine-on-tap systems for commercial and at-home settings, boxed wine companies have upgraded the design of packaging, with a few companies opting for reusable wooden boxes. “The container is becoming less of an issue and the only way it is an issue is if we get a, ’Wow, isn’t that cool!’ response,” says Sbrocco. “It’s cool that there’s a plastic bottle or it’s cool if there’s wine on tap or it’s cool if there’s wine in a can. That is the changing mindset of wine consumers.”

Creamy mushroom sauce,no cans required
t’s hard to go wrong with heavy cream and mushrooms. Actually, you could just stop with the heavy cream. But we’ll pretend the addition of mushrooms to this easy, comforting weeknight dinner somehow makes it virtuous. If nothing else, relying on real, fresh ingredients will certainly be better for you than popping open a can of cream-of-anything soup. This recipe is ridiculously simple. Make a vinaigrette-like marinade and give some chicken breasts a bath in it for about 20 minutes. I keep the marinade simple with little more than oil, vinegar, garlic and smoked paprika, but you can add any other seasonings that excite you. Next, you saute some mushrooms, then add the chicken. When everything is cooked, you dump in some cream and call it dinner. You’re going to want to eat this with something to sop up all that sauce. Hunks of French bread would be nice, but egg noodles or rice would be great, too.

1 teaspoon smoked paprika Salt and ground black pepper 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless c h i c k e n breasts 1 pound sliced button mushrooms 1/2 cup white wine 1/2 cup heavy cream 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme 1 scallion, finely sliced Bread, noodles or rice, for serving In a large bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, the vinegar, garlic, paprika, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Mix well, then set aside. One at a time lay each chicken breast on the cutting surface and slice across the center horizontally to create 2 thin halves.

Add the mushrooms and saute until browned, about 8 minutes.

This recipe is ridiculously simple.Make a vinaigrette-like marinade and give some chicken breasts a bath in it for about 20 minutes.Keep the marinade simple with little more than oil,vinegar,garlic and smoked paprika.
Add the chicken and any marinade in the bowl to the pan. Brown the chicken on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Add the wine and gently shake the pan to help deglaze it. Reduce heat to low, then add the cream and the thyme. Stir to combine with the mushrooms. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 minute. Serve chicken and mushroom sauce over noodles, rice or bread.

Easy as pie with Martha Stewart
Whoever coined the phrase “easy as pie” clearly didn’t bake much. Enter Martha Stewart ... Again. Stewart’s latest cookbook — simply named “Pies and Tarts” — offers more than 150 recipes whose clear instructions, gorgeous photos and brevity (all recipes fit on one page) take the intimidation out of pastry. Organized by category from “classic” (think apple) to “free-form” (no pie plate handy?) to “artful” (double lattice crusts, shingled leaves), the book lets users pick pies according to their skill and occasion. From savory tarts to mile-high meringues, the range of pastries offered makes the book useful for dinner or dessert, winter or summer, weeknights and weekends. Mini chicken potpies with herbed crust make a hearty winter meal, while vegetable tartlets filled with zucchini and tomaMartha Stewart toes are an elegant summer lunch. Everyday desserts such as the fruit tart with a cookie-like crust can be made all year long with whatever’s in the market, and free-form galettes — in which the dough is simply rolled and folded over a mound of fresh fruit — are easy enough for a busy Tuesday night. Even special occasion desserts like billowy Key lime pie with graham cracker crust and dainty tartlets filled with persimmon and caramel cream appear straightforward. For the holidays, you’ve got Neapolitan Easter pie filled with wheat berries and ricotta and a berry tart snuggled into a macaroonlike crust of coconut and egg white. And it is flour- and dairy-free for Passover. True to the formula of Stewart’s books, an instructional chapter offers the 1-2-3 of crust making, excellent tips about freezing ingredients so you’re ready when guests pop by, and a graduated lesson on mastering pie-making skills from single-crust affairs to driedfruit compotes with star-lattice designs. Who knows? Maybe it was Stewart who called pie-making “easy.” both cities upward of $500,000 a year. “There is a possibility to find even more savings with future partnerships,” Belville told the San Mateo City Council at a special study session Monday evening. “We are trying to take every opportunity to find savings. We have an open mind to all scenarios.” Melding or consolidating the departments is not as easy as it looks, Belville said. “From the outside perspective it looks easy but there are labor contracts, rules and policies to deal with,” he said. Lim mentioned concern related to overtime cost in the consolidation effort. “Will reduction of positions lead to more overtime?” Lim asked Belville. The councilman also wanted to know whether firefighters were willing to give up career advancement with the partnership. “What about upward mobility? Will veteran firefighters go elsewhere?” Lim asked. So far, “there are no bumps with the labor unions” and overtime cost should not be an issue, Belville said. Both councils in Foster City and San Mateo have given Belville the go-ahead to implement the 36-month attrition plan to consolidate job duties as well as create a unified command structure for both departments.

size of San Mateo, has only one fire station and has far less calls for service. San Mateo, on the other hand, has six fire stations and responds to far more calls for service. “Be careful with the funding formula,” Councilman David Lim said. Lim was referring to a funding formula based on population and assessed property values that doomed the Belmont-San Carlos Fire Department when San Carlos’ share to fund the joint department crept beyond what it expected to pay. Belmont is currently seeking to establish its own stand-alone fire department while San Carlos is looking for partnerships with Redwood City and other agencies as the Belmont-San Carlos Fire Department is set to dissolve this October. The county even offered both cities mediation to help keep the current department intact. In the meantime, San Carlos requested other agencies to offer proposals to provide the fire service with a deadline looming April 1. The trouble in San Carlos and Belmont has prompted fire officials throughout the county to take a regional approach to providing the service based on the poor economy and dwindling

resources. The newly-formed relationship in Foster City and San Mateo may result in the two fire departments ultimately melding into one department. The departments already share a fire chief in Dan Belville, who is working to find new cost savings through attrition as the San Mateo Fire Department faces up to four retirements in upper management over the next three years. Sharing Belville “couldn’t be working any better at all,” Foster City Councilman Rick Wykoff said about the arrangement. “Our people feel he has the best interest of both cities,” Wykoff said. “I’m excited about what he is doing.” Belville has developed a strategy to share battalion chiefs and to consolidate management positions that will save said the only way the fractured relationship with San Carlos could be fixed is if the two sides agreed to keep the current funding formula and joint powers agreement as is. The current funding formula is based on population, calls for service and assessed property value. “The old deal was OK,” Warden said. “But if they are trying to squeeze another deal out of us, forget it. I don’t see where the negotiation is.” Feierbach’s words were even harsher. “If we approve this, we are dancing with the devil. Whatever you do you will do without me because I will not participate in any mediation,” Feierbach said. “It is wrong. It is really, really a sin to do something like that.” Councilmembers David Braunstein, Warren Lieberman and Christine Wozniak voted in favor of mediation. “It is an opportunity to find if a financial arrangement can be reached. We could find a whole new cost structure,” Lieberman said. Braunstein said it was time to take the discussion face to face. “We have to explore all options,” Braunstein said. “We are in a time crunch here. Lots of cities are looking at

al to San Carlos to provide fire services. San Carlos previously accepted the county’s offer and Groom gave Belmont until this Friday to agree to mediation. Councilman Dave Warden and Mayor Coralin Feierbach, however, voted against the proposal. “The county did not want to do it, to provide for San Carlos and now we are being asked to come to their aid,” Feierbach said. It was San Carlos, after all, that sent the letter of dissolution to Belmont last year after the formula to fund the joint department caused the share for San Carlos to go up beyond what was expected. Belmont has a dedicated funding stream, about $6.5 million to pay for fire services, while San Carlos relies on its general fund to pay for the service. Warden, however, called San Carlos a “bad business partner.” Warden voted against mediation and

us to see how we treat each other.” The dispute between the two cities has prompted a greater discussion on a broader, regional effort to provide fire services in the county. Although the council, acting as the Belmont Fire Protection District, voted for mediation, none of the councilmembers know what to expect in the process or even how it will be conducted. Belmont is now moving toward establishing its own stand-alone fire department and is negotiating with Redwood City to continue sharing some services, including a fire marshal and training battalion chief. Other opportunities include sharing battalion chiefs and a disaster preparedness officer, according to a letter from Redwood City Fire Chief James Skinner to Belmont-San Carlos Fire Chief Doug Fry. The Belmont-San Carlos Fire Department will dissolve Oct. 13 unless the two cities can reach an agreement.
