Private company bids on city fire
San Carlos weighs options as partnership with Belmont ending
By Michelle Durand

A private fire company has thrown its hat into the ring to provide service to San Carlos, giving officials another option to consider alongside an arrangement with Redwood City, a stand-alone department or patching up the bitter

partnership with Belmont. The bid came in Friday, just under the proposal deadline, and staff is still vetting its details. More infor-

mation will be available Monday, said Assistant City Manager Brian Moura who is overseeing the process. The city did not release the company’s name but said it provides both fire and emergency response services. The City Council will hear a full presentation on that proposal April

18 along with proposals by Redwood City for both a complete takeover of services and a hybrid model in which the two share management. Redwood City submitted its original $5.9 million bid months ago and has since worked with San Carlos to tweak the details. The two have also discussed the hybrid, or

federation, model that mimics the structure used by North County Fire. In that model, partner cities share management but pay their own firefighters. The city previously extended the proposal request deadline at the urging of San Mateo County when it was mulling the possibility of sub-

The Notre Dame High School cheer squad reacts as it is announced they won the United Spirit Association nationals competition held in Anaheim.

Notre Dame defends title
Squad returns from nationals with second championship win
By Heather Murtagh

For the second year, Notre Dame High School’s cheer squad returned from nationals with reason to be spirited — a championship title. Notre Dame was one of a number of San Mateo County high schools to earn a bid to the United Spirit Association nationals competition held in Anaheim last weekend. While all squads showcased their spirit, it was Notre Dame that successfully defended its national title coming home for the second time with a first place finish in the large varsity novice show cheer division. “It’s almost hard to explain. We were hoping we’d do well,” said

coach Morgan Craig. “To defend your title in any sport is amazing. I’m proud of the girls.” Notre Dame had a large division, facing 23 squads. Only five moved on to the finals, held on Sunday. Notre Dame’s 20-girl squad had placed third after the preliminary round Friday. Cheerleading, like any sport, is about the performance on any particular day. Locally, squads from Mercy, El Camino, Sequoia, Hillsdale and Carlmont high schools competed in a variety divisions aiming for a top spot. The rebuilding year for Mercy’s Crusader Rabbits earned the 24-girl

squad a fourth place finish in the large varsity novice division, said coach Rebecca Hazen. “They did great. I’m really proud of them. They hit their routine. They did everything solid,” said Hazen, who only expects her team to improve. Hillsdale High School’s 13girl squad — consisting of six seniors, a junior and six sophomores — took ninth out of 21 squads in the medium varsity show cheer intermediate division, said coach Stephanie Silvers. Sequoia’s 20-member varsity

A 55-year-old Redwood City woman awaiting trial for driving while intoxicated is accused of the same crime, but this time with her 5year-old granddaughter in the vehicle. Alla Hajiyeva was arrested Thursday afternoon on suspicion of child endangerment and driving while under the influence after Belmont police and fire responded to calls of an injury crash on El Camino Real at Harbor Boulevard. At approximately 4:10 p.m., Hajiyeva rear-ended a 2009 BMW Sedan with her 2002 Mazda

Protege, causing minor injuries to the 60-year-old female driver from Belmont, according to a statement by Belmont police Lt. Pat Halleran. H a j i y eva ’s Alla Hajiyeva young granddaughter, who was in her vehicle, was also taken to an area hospital with non-threatening injuries while Hajiyeva was booked into jail. She is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail. The results of Hajiyeva blood alcohol test are not yet available,

LOS ANGELES — Police believe many baseball fans witnessed a beating that left a San Francisco Giants fan critically injured after the season opening game at Dodger Stadium and they asked Friday for help in identifying the attackers. The victim has been identified in

published reports as 42-year-old Santa Cruz resident Bryan Stow. He had reportedly attended the game with three friends, at least some of whom work with him at American Medical Response in San Mateo where Stow is employed as a paramedic, according to KTVU.

Parolee leads CHP on high-speed chase

A parolee who allegedly led California Highway Patrol officers on a high-speed car chase before fleeing on foot through San Mateo Thursday afternoon faces several felony and misdemeanor charges. Kenneth Roberts II, 27, is being held on a $100,000 bail and a no-bail parole hold. If prosecutors charge him with evading police, resisting arrest and several other crimes, he will be arraigned Monday afternoon. The chase began Thursday afternoon on eastbound State Route 92 when officers tried

Bishops call on lawmakers, governor to compromise
SACRAMENTO — The president of the California Catholic Conference is calling on Gov. Jerry Brown and legislative Republicans to return to the bargaining table to work out a deal on the state budget. The Most Rev. Gerald Wilkerson, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, said Friday that his group is praying for a compromise on the $26.6 billion deficit. The Democratic governor wanted to balance the budget through a mix of cuts and tax extensions that voters would consider in a June special election. But talks with GOP lawmakers collapsed. Wilkerson says the news was disappointing for Californians and devastating to the poor and vulnerable, who face billions of dollars in cuts to social programs. He says lawmakers should not follow a partisan agenda. The conference represents Catholic leaders statewide.

Recreational salmon season opens Saturday

SAN FRANCISCO — For the first time in four years California’s recreational Chinook salmon fishermen are gearing up for what is expected to be a normal-length season. California Department of Fish and Game officially opens the season on Saturday, after

forecasts predicted triple the amount of salmon expected to return to the Sacramento River this fall. It was also welcome news for the state’s bait and tackle shops, boat mechanics and others who have been hard hit economically by the salmon declines. Anglers can fish salmon legally from Cape

Mendocino south to the U.S.-Mexico border. Waters north of Cape Mendocino to the Oregon border will be opened at a later, undetermined date. The fall Sacramento River Chinook salmon run provides 80-to-90 percent of the fish caught off the California coast.

Obama says spending deal close
By David Espo

Local briefs
Downtown carjacker arrested
San Mateo police quickly arrested a Millbrae man after he violently took the keys from a 42-year-old San Mateo woman and stole her car, colliding with structures in a parking garage and another car in downtown San Mateo Thursday afternoon. At approximately 2:50 p.m., the woman was in the Mills Square parking garage at 101 S. San Mateo Drive when the man, later identified as Paul Patrick Kirwan, 42, violently took her keys to her car and tried to flee the garage, hitting the parking attendant’s structure and the closed parking gate. He hit another car, leading to injuries to a 50year-old San Mateo resident, according to police. Kirwan then allegedly fled on foot, according to police. Multiple officers were on scene within two minutes and were pointed in the right direction by witnesses. Kirwan was arrested and was found to have been released on parole just two weeks before. He was charged with carjacking, assault with a deadly weapon (intentional ramming of another vehicle), felony driving under the influence (injury to driver), drug possession and parole violation, according to police.

WASHINGTON — A bullish President Barack Obama said Friday that compromise is close with Republicans on $33 billion in budget cuts, and he warned that without a deal the ensuing government shutdown would “jeopardize our economic recovery” just as jobs are finally being created. Despite his assessment, negotiators reported little progress, Senate Democrats backtracked on a key concession from earlier in the week and Congress’ top Republican sounded less optimistic than the president that a breakthrough was imminent. “There is no number. There is no agreement on a number” on how much to cut, insisted House Speaker John Boehner, who is under pressure from tea party-backed conservatives not to give too much ground. Still, he added, “I am not preparing for a government shutdown.” Funding for the government expires next Friday at midnight, and without action by Congress, a partial shutdown would follow. The day’s events occurred against a backdrop of unusually upbeat news about the economy, which is still recovering from the worst recession since the Great Depression. The Labor Department reported that companies added 216,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate fell slightly to 8.8 percent. Nearly six weeks after the House passed a bill calling for $61 billion in cuts, it appeared the endgame was at hand in the first of what is expected to be a series of political battles over the size and scope of government. “We will be working through the weekend to forge a compromise,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. At Republican insistence, Congress has already cut $10 billion in spending as part of a pair of stopgap spending bills to keep the government open for business. While another short-term bill has not been ruled out, Obama, Boehner, Reid and others have said they would prefer to complete work on a six-month bill to close out the budget year. Already, Republicans are looking ahead to unveiling a 2012 budget next week, after weighing privately whether to delay so they could focus all of their attention on the current clash.


Barack Obama delivers remarks at a UPS shipping facility in Landover,Md.
Administration officials have been heavily involved in the negotiations on the spending bill, but the president struck something of an above-the-fray note on Friday. “Given the encouraging news we received today on jobs, it would be the height of irresponsibility to halt our economic momentum because of the same old Washington politics,” he said. “It can’t be ‘my way or the highway politics,’ said the president, who has sought in recent months to recapture the support of independents who helped elect him in 20008 but defected to the Republicans in last fall’s elections. “We know that a compromise is within reach. And we also know that if these budget negotiations break down, it could shut down the government and jeopardize our economic recovery.” Shortly before Obama spoke, Reid shifted the Democrats’ position on one key element of the talks, in apparent deference to environmentalists angered by an earlier concession. “Neither the White House or the Senate leaders is going to accept any EPA riders,” he said in a conference call with reporters. House Republicans included provisions in their $61 billion package of spending cuts that would block the EPA from implementing regulations on a variety of industries. Democratic officials indicated earlier in the week some of them would be incorporated into any agreement as part of a deal under which Republicans would agree to accept total cuts less than $61 billion. In response to Reid’s statement, Kevin Smith, a spokesman for Boehner, said, “If they are taking EPA riders off the table, then we’re certainly not ‘close’ to a deal.“ In fact, it appeared the two sides had agreed to little, except that they would assemble a framework to cut $33 billion from current spending levels. The original House measure would cut $61 billion from domestic accounts, including administration priorities such as education and infrastructure.

Local schools honored for achievement
Two local schools — Millbrae’s Lomita Park Elementary and South San Francisco’s Sunshine Gardens Elementary — were selected as 2010-11 Title I Academic Achievement Award. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced this week that 209 California public schools were selected for the award given to schools receiving federal funding to assist in meeting the needs of students living near or at the poverty level. “These schools have demonstrated exceptional commitment to the education of their students and have achieved impressive results,” Torlakson said in a prepared statement. “I congratulate all those who put forth the extra effort that resulted in this prestigious award — school administrators and staffs, teachers, parents and, of course, the students themselves.” Of the more than 9,000 schools in California, more than 6,000 of them participate in the Title I program. The criteria to qualify for the Title I Academic Achievement Award have become more rigorous in recent years. To meet the criteria for this distinction, the school must demonstrate that all students are making significant progress toward proficiency on California’s academic content standards. Additionally, the school’s socioeconomically disadvantaged students must have doubled the achievement targets set for them for two consecutive years. The 2010-11 awardees will be honored at a reception and banquet at the Disneyland Hotel on May 20.

Lawmaker’s speech perpetuates boozy image
By Stephen Dockery

HELENA, Mont. — A lawmaker’s speech railing against drunken driving reform — mocked mercilessly by political opponents — is no laughing matter to activists who say it perpetuates the state’s dangerous boozy culture. Bar owner Alan Hale said in a speech on the House floor this week that DUI laws are harmful to small businesses, implying people need to drive home after drinking. Tough DUI laws “are destroying a way of life that has been in Montana for years and years,” said the Republican from the rural town Basin, where a few hundred people live near the mountains of the Continental Divide. Hale’s speech was perhaps most surprising for its honesty. Until only recently, Montana had one of the most permissive drunken driving cultures in the country. Montanans could legally sip a beer while driving, and repeat

DUI offenders tallied sixth and seventh offenses with little punishment. Mothers Against Drunk Driving said statements like Hale’s take the state back to those more dangerous times. “His comments are completely out of sync with Alan Hale public safety and reality,” said MADD activist Becky Sturdevant, who has worked for years to tighten state laws and is now on the cusp of one her biggest legislative victories. “I think Montana has a tough culture in that there’s some validity in what he is saying. But I certainly don’t think there’s a majority of people.” Few politicians, even in Montana, dare to stand up these days against DUI reform. But Hale’s comments perhaps reflected what others are privately thinking in a state that struggled mightily to outlaw drinking behind the

wheel — a practice that was legal outside city limits until 2005 as long as the driver was not legally intoxicated. Hale took the business angle. “These DUI laws are not doing our small businesses in our state any good at all. They are destroying them,“ Hale said, talking about the long drives in rural areas to get to pubs. “They are the center of the communities. I’ll guarantee you there’s only two ways to get there: either you hitchhike, or you drive, and I promise you that they are not going to hitchhike.“ He refused to comment on the issue Friday. Hale is not the only lawmaker to push back against DUI reform in this legislative session. Sen. Jonathan Windy Boy, a Democrat, took issue with a proposal to strip driver’s licenses from teens caught drinking, even if they’re not driving at the time. He argued that the entire package of proposed DUI reform puts the Legislature on “the path of criminalizing everyone in Montana.” Tracey (Jim), sons Dean (Sue) and Ted (Julie) and six beloved grandchildren: Matthew, Anne, Hunter, Morganne, Nova Rose and Brandon; his sister Wanda (Mario); brother Glenn; sister in law Robin; and niece Lisa.

Eight-year-old seeks bone marrow match
Eight-year-old Tevita Kofeloa was diagnosed with aplastic anemia in February resulting in a search for a bone marrow donor match. Kofeloa, who is Tongan, Samoan and Chinese, has the best chances of finding a match with someone who is also from Pacific Islander and Asian descent. A donor drive is being held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 2 at the Teman Middle School field, 855 Arastradero Road in Palo Alto. Only 30 percent of patients find donor matches from a relative, according with the National Bone Marrow Donor Program website. The remaining 70 percent have a better chance of finding a match with a person who is the same race and ethnicity because tissue types are inherited. Registering requires a simple cotton swab test and answering a few questions. Potential donors must be 18 to 60 years old and in good health.

Authorities kill mountain lion cornered in backyard
Authorities shot and killed a mountain lion that they cornered in a backyard after it wandered into a Redwood City neighborhood Tuesday morning. The cat was first spotted at about 8:15 a.m. near Alameda de las Pulgas and Whipple Avenue. Police had set up a perimeter and trapped the animal in the backyard of a home near Whipple Avenue and Woodsworth Avenue, about a block from Sequoia Hospital, Redwood City spokesman Malcolm Smith said. The mountain lion was shot sometime around 11:30 a.m. California Department of Fish and Game Lt. Todd Ajari said the department prefers to tranquilize wild animals if the location is conducive to it and officials can get a clear shot. In Tuesday’s case, officials were forced to kill the mountain lion because it was cornered in a residential area, he said. Cherie and Wally Oliver, who live at 2515 Whipple Ave., where the cat was trapped, said the animal was in a tree in their backyard. Cherie Oliver said there is a hot tub about 20 feet from the tree. “I’ll think twice in the hot tub at night when I hear rustling in the leaves,” she said.

Teen guilty of six felonies
Jurors could not unanimously agree if Alexander Robert Youshock deliberately threw a lit pipe bomb directly at a Hillsdale High School security aide in an attempt to kill her — resulting in a 9-3 hung jury on one of seven charges against the teen. A few hours after hearing additional arguments on two charges stemming from the Aug. 24, 2009 attack, jurors came back hopelessly deadlocked on the second count of attempted murder but found Youshock guilty of exploding a device with the intent to kill. The verdicts join those reached Monday when the jury found Youshock guilty of premeditating and trying to murder his former chemistry teacher, Meghan Spalding, exploding a destructive device with intent to commit murder, possessing a destructive device in a public place, using explosives in an act of terrorism and possessing a deadly weapon. The convictions means Youshock, who has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and is portrayed by the defense as schizophrenic, will have a sanity phase in which jurors decide if he knew what he was doing and if it was wrong. This process is set to start Monday and Guidotti told the court she would hold off on deciding if Youshock will be retried on the attempted murder charge until after that phase because it “does not affect the balance of the trial.” He faces life in prison or, if found insane, hospitalization. The bomb-laden teen went to school Aug. 24, 2009 wanting to kill teachers he deemed “guilty” of ruining his life and leaving the principal guilt-ridden. After five months of planning for “D-Day,” Youshock arrived on campus with a chain saw, 10 homemade bombs and a foot-long sword. He was never able to start the chain saw and was tackled by a teacher before anyone was injured.

Locally grown?
It all depends on how you define it
By Mary Clare Jalonick

WASHINGTON — The No. 2 official at the Agriculture Department recently got a reallife lesson in the loose definition of the trendiest word in groceries: “local.” Walking into her neighborhood grocery store in Washington, Kathleen Merrigan saw a beautiful display of plump strawberries and a sign that said they were local produce. But the package itself said they were grown in California, well over 2,000 miles away. The popularity of locally grown food — which many assume means the food is fresher, made with fewer chemicals and grown by smaller, less corporate farms — has led to an explosion in the use of the word “local” in food marketing. It’s the latest big thing after the surge in food marketed as “organic,” another subject of continuing labeling controversy. But what does local mean? Lacking common agreement, sellers capitalizing on the trend occasionally try to fudge the largely unregulated term. Some grocery stores may define local as within a large group of states, while consumers might think it means right in

their hometown. “It’s a sales gimmick,” says Allen Swann, a Maryland farmer who became frustrated when he realized a nearby grocery chain was selling peaches and corn from New York and New Jersey as local produce. “They are using the word local because of the economic advantage of using the word local.” A federal definition is unlikely because of the diversity of crops and growing regions around the country. A set distance or definition that works for one state or one crop may not make sense for others. But some states have taken a crack at it. Vermont defines “local” as grown within the state or within 30 miles of where it is sold. Massachusetts has similar restrictions for the word “native.” And numerous other states have made it easier for local farmers to advertise that their food was produced in-state. Maryland recently proposed a new rule that would require retailers to disclose what state a food is from if they advertise it as locally grown. Maryland Agriculture Secretary Earl “Buddy” Hance says the state settled on that approach so consumers could be the ones to decide what they think is local.

Sept. 9 fire resource center opens
City officials and nonprofit leaders celebrated the opening of the San Bruno Resource Recovery Center Tuesday for residents affected by the Sept. 9 natural gas line explosion and fire. The 4,800-square-foot center, located at 458 San Mateo Ave. in San Bruno, will be home to a number of recovery resources like case workers, mental health services and educational information. The center was made possible through a partnership with numerous organizations including the Peninsula Health Care District, which donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross to fund tenant improvements for the center. “Whatever it takes for as long as it takes,” Mayor Jim Ruane said about how long recovery services will be offered. Mutual aid has been highlighted during and after the tragedy. Often that definition responds to those in emergency services. However, the recovery center is an example of other services working together, Ruane said. The space, previously vacant for more than a year, was refurbished to include a larger

No grounds for blasting redistricting
— The Long Beach Press-Telegram

Other voices
intended to remove politics from redistricting and increase voter confidence. The funny thing is that the one other bidder, the Rose Institute, is right-leaning. And Quinn, who is outraged about Rose’s exclusion, is on that group’s board. By his own standard, his association with Rose should have disqualified it. Perhaps more relevant: Rose’s application was sloppy. Unlike Q2, it didn’t include the disclosures required to ferret out such conflicts. That’s why the commission members — five Democrats, five Republicans and four independents — unanimously rejected it. “I would have been embarrassed to submit that report,” Vince Barabba, a Republican member, said. Barabba is frustrated by the attacks from his party, including that he and his fellow Republicans have ceded control to the left. “I really resent it,” he said, detailing his years of work for the GOP dating to

alifornia’s new redistricting commission is working furiously to meet its Aug. 15 deadline for redrawing legislative lines. Partisans are busy, too — trying to smear its 14 members with wild accusations. Don’t be fooled. The criticism aims only to undermine the commission’s credibility and generate political support. The controversy came to a boil last week when two prominent Republicans bashed the commission’s choice of Oakland’s Q2 Data and Research to assist in drawing new districts. Bruce Cain, a University of California professor who years ago consulted for Democrats on redistricting, is a minority owner of Q2. That connection — according to Tony Quinn, a Republican commentator, and Tom Del Beccaro, new chairman of the California Republican Party — should have disqualified Q2’s bid. The fact that it didn’t, they say, is proof Democrats have hijacked the process, which was


Ronald Reagan’s governorship. Besides, he says, Q2’s connections, however tenuous, are meaningless. The firm isn’t drawing the lines; the commission is. Quinn and Del Beccaro have a list of other silly complaints, all of which are easily rebutted. Having a reasonable argument isn’t the intent, though. This is about scoring political points. Quinn’s screed: “The ethic (sic) activists who have taken over the commission view Republicans as almost a white colonial power denying an emerging California population their rights through racist immigrant bashing and tax and spending policies that deprive people of color their share of the public goodies.” Barabba, the GOP commissioner, would take issue with Quinn’s assessment. He’s impressed by members’ expertise, range of views and willingness to consider others’ opinions. The criticism is no surprise; both parties have long worried the commission would weaken them. But it’s still disappointing. Watch the commission’s meetings online at www.wedrawthelines.ca.gov.

Letters to the editor
Editor, In Dorothy Dimitre’s column on March 28, she writes disparagingly of a letter previously submitted. In that letter, the writer noted that “Since the Three Mile Island ‘disaster’ in which no one was killed or injured, more than one million people have died in automobile accidents in the United States.” Dimitre didn’t challenge him on his facts, just the direct relevance of those facts. The writer could have made his point better by submitting the following facts, which can be found easily at the website of the American Lung Association, www.lungusa.com: 1). Each year, between 14,000 and 36,000 people die from coal-fired power plant pollution which crosses state lines. 2). Each year, 13,000 people die from particulate matter from coal-fired power plants. Consider just the former, and use the average of 25,000 deaths per year or approximately 500 each week. In the roughly two weeks since the earthquake and tsunami that struck northeastern Japan, approximately 1,000 people have died from coal-fired power plant pollution. Nothing sensational, and therefore, nothing newsworthy. The public couldn’t care less. Same with transportation deaths: tens of thousands of automobile deaths every year don’t so much as raise an eyebrow. One commercial airplane crash makes worldwide headlines. Sensational. Run it. Airplanes kill. We’re rightfully admiring the “Fukushima 50” power plant workers. But did anybody notice that 52 Pakistani coal miners died in a mine explosion last week? I’ll bet that the letter writer noticed. portation is an essential solution to environmental problems and is also a social justice issue. People without cars need to be able to get to work and have the same opportunities for employment as those with cars. We all need to reduce our dependence on oil and greenhouse gas emissions. This is an important service that many people rely on.

Caltrain’s importance
Editor, My husband and I are moving to downtown San Jose next month and will be living across the street from the Diridon Station. We chose this location so we can take the train to work since we only have one vehicle between us. Having the train gives us so much more freedom. My work stop is the San Antonio Station, which is slated to be closed. This would be a big disappointment to me and my colleagues who take the train from San Francisco, San Mateo and Menlo Park. By cutting services and raising fares, people are less likely to take the train. We need to increase ridership by making mass transit fast, easy and connected. I strongly believe that public trans-

Train improves our lives
Editor, I use the trains to go to San Francisco Giants games as well as to see museums in the city. I go to San Jose to see the museum and I used the train to go to the only San Jose Sharks game I have ever been to. I would not consider driving. When I see the crowded commuter trains, I shudder to think what it would be like every train passenger chose to drive instead. The train increases our quality of life.

here have been, sadly, some funny columns recently about those poor babies in the financial, business and corporate world who feel deeply hurt they are being picked upon. Especially, the Koch Brothers with their $42 billion of net worth and covert contributions to extreme right candidates. One Wall Street Baby was even quoted as asking: “When are they going to stop whacking at the Wall Street pinata?” Let’s see how the poor innocent Wall Street babies have suffered. Instead of the highly deserved imprisonment that their predecessors suffered during the Great Depression as a result of the inquiries by the famed Pecora Commission, not one single Poor Baby of today has even been a country mile from being even being endangered of imprisonment during the Obama administration. They label President Obama as being anything from just hostile to the business community to being a suspect socialist with “internalized Marxist ideas” promoting societal hostility and class warfare. Let’s look at what mischief Obama has achieved since inauguration. While the lower income classes are suffering the highest unemployment and wrecked real estate business since the Great Depression, U.S. businesses have posted massive profits, the greatest in history. Poor General Electric posted only $14.5 billion. Sad, because JPMorgan Chase profits went up 47 percent last year. Since that Socialist/Marxist Obama has been in office, the Dow Jones has increased from 8,000 to 12,000, the wealthiest received a massive tax cut, the top marginal tax rate is one-third of the Eisenhower years, the wealth inequality is the greatest since before the Great Depression, the share of U. S. taxes paid by corporations has fallen from 30 percent in 1950 to about the 7 percent of today and the percentage of those living below the poverty line is the greatest since statistics have been gathered. So how about that damn socialist/Marxist class warfare president? And, look at all them radicals he surrounds himself with! Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, a former business-loving investment banker. Replaced by Bill Daley, JP Morgan’s Midwest chairman and Wall Street lover and veteran Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. And now, he has added General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt, a corporation with $14.5 billion in profits last year that paid no taxes. An inside joke has been reported that other financial institutions are resenting that so many Goldman Sachs officials occupy so many high level U. S. Treasury jobs. Poor babies! The ones who should be crying, now, are those financially and job dispossessed who are, undoubtedly, wondering why they voted for that Wall Street and business-lovin’ Obama in the first place. *** We can’t deny we are living in some interesting times. Such times cannot be predicted and sometimes we don’t even realize we have been living through them until we look back. Who could have predicted the Arab spring uprising against the dictators of the Middle East? Or that the conservative Republicans would have acquired so much traction as to be able, at one time, to attempt to reverse so much of the social progress of the past 80 years and block the revenue needed to keep the nation from a horrendous financial reversal? Certainly, we are not bankrupt but we will be if they succeed in bleeding the nation dry of revenue to favor the oligarchs who now, already, are astride our nation’s destiny. Whether they succeed depends upon the negative perceptions of the middle class. But, that is not likely, yet, because a recent survey by two Harvard professors showed a surprising result: Most Americans grossly underestimate the level of wealth inequality in the United States. While the most recent data show that the richest 20 percent of Americans own 84 percent of the national wealth, those polled, Democrats and Republicans alike, believed it was far more evenly divided, like 20 percent owning just 32 percent of the wealth. The professors concluded that the middle class considers itself affluent because it possesses a lot of cars, houses and material goods and is doing better than its parents and in “keeping up with the Joneses.” But some owe so much on credit that they may actually have a zero or negative net worth. I will add, they likely don’t realize that much of this accumulated wealth is due, predominately, to the manipulation of financials and has nothing to do with physical additions to the national wealth or the creation of any productive jobs for the benefit of other citizens. But it will become acutely aware if the current crop of conservatives is able cut away enough of the instruments it has had to increase or preserve its own wealth, such as collective bargaining, unemployment, Social Security and Medicare benefits and gelds the minimum wage and child labor laws. That will capture its attention.

Eight of the 10 company groups that make up the S&P 500 index moved higher, led by a 0.9 percent rise in industrials shares. The Dow rose 56.99 points, or 0.5 percent, to 12,376.72.

The Institute of Supply Management reported a slight slowing in manufacturing growth during March. The trade group’s index of manufacturing activity slipped to 61.2 from February’s 61.4.

NEW YORK — A drop in the unemployment rate to a two-year low sent stocks higher Friday. The Labor Department said the unemployment rate fell to 8.8 percent, the lowest since March 2009, as companies added workers at the fastest two-month pace since before the recession began. Approximately 216,000 new jobs were created last month, offsetting layoffs by local governments. Economists had expected the unemployment rate to remain at 8.9 percent. “We are clearly seeing a breakout in the labor market,” said Paul Zemsky, the head of asset allocation at ING Investment Management. “The jobless recovery is ending and we are moving into a job expansion stage of the economy.” The report helped send the Dow Jones industrial average to a new 2011 high during early trading. Stocks then pared those gains in the afternoon as oil prices hit new 30-month highs. Crude oil jumped $1.22 to settle at $107.94. The Dow’s 100-point gain early in the day seemed unwarranted because the employment report was just slightly better than expected, said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at Harris Private Bank in Chicago. “There’s a relief that the job gains were continuing, but it’s not a huge

Auto sales up with economy
By Tom Krisher and Dee-Ann Durbin

DETROIT — Americans bought smaller cars and SUVs in March, as higher gas prices made fuel efficiency a top priority and rising employment meant more first-time buyers bought a vehicle. The trends lifted U.S. sales of new vehicles by 17 percent from a year earlier to 1.25 million, a healthy rate that shows the auto industry’s slow and steady recovery remains on track. The monthly sales pace, adjusted for seasonal differences and projected out for the year, came in at 13.1 million. That’s higher than last year, but still far below recent boom years when car

sales hit 16 million a year. The March 11 earthquake in Japan had little impact on sales, although automakers said supplies of some cars could be tighter as spring progresses. General Motors, Ford, Honda and Nissan all saw double-digit increases in sales. Of major automakers, only Toyota reported a decline of 6 percent, but that was expected since Toyota’s sales last March were boosted by big incentives. As gas prices rose, sales of more efficient cars and crossovers took off. The national average for a gallon of gas hit $3.58 this week, the highest price ever for this time of year. Gas prices have jumped 25.1 cents per gallon in the past month. “This is a new normal we’re going to experience going into spring this year

unless gas prices ease off dramatically,” said Jesse Toprak, vice president for industry trends at auto pricing site TrueCar.com. Sales of the Nissan Sentra compact car doubled over last year, while sales of the Hyundai Sonata and Elantra small cars rose a combined 55 percent. Fuel-efficient crossovers like the Ford Escape did well, too. Crossovers are sport utility vehicles built on car underpinnings so they’re more efficient and maneuverable than truck-based SUVs. But Toprak said gas prices weren’t the whole story. Buyers always respond to new products, and it just happens that many of those products — like the Ford Fiesta subcompact and Chevrolet Cruze small car — are also the most fuel-efficient.

Google founder hopes to prove he’s ready to be CEO

SAN FRANCISCO — Google cofounder Larry Page is known for his vision, passion and intelligence. Yet there is a fair amount of concern that Page’s other known traits — his aloofness, rebellious streak and affinity for pursuing wacky ideas — might lead the company astray. Page takes over as

Larry Page

CEO on Monday as fast-rising rivals and tougher regulators threaten Google’s growth. Investors used to Google Inc.’s consistency in exceeding financial targets worry that new leadership will bring

more emphasis on long-term projects that take years to pay off. And many people still aren’t sure he has enough management skills to steer the Internet’s most powerful company. Page already has learned that smarts alone won’t make him a great leader. Although Page impressed Google’s early investors with his ingenuity, they still insisted that he step down in 2001 as Google’s first CEO.

FDA proposes calorie counts on menus

Business brief
Judge tosses extortion lawsuit against Yelp
SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge who dismissed a class-action lawsuit accusing consumer review website Yelp of extortion is giving plaintiffs a month to refile their complaint. Judge Marilyn Hall Patel ruled last week that the original suit failed to back up small business owners’ claims that Yelp was manipulating user reviews to force them to advertise on the site. Plaintiffs claimed that negative reviews reappeared after they refused to buy advertising.

WASHINGTON — Like it or not, many restaurant diners will soon know more about what they are eating under menu labeling requirements proposed by the Food and Drug Administration. The requirements will force chain restaurants with 20 or more locations, along with bakeries, grocery stores, convenience stores and coffee chains, to clearly post the amount of calories in each item on menus, both in restaurants

and drive-through lanes. The new rules will also apply to vending machines where calorie information isn’t already visible on the package. The calorie counts will apply to an estimated 280,000 establishments and could be on menus by 2012. Required as part of health overhaul legislation signed into law last year, they are designed to give restaurant diners information that has long been available on packaged goods cooked at home. The FDA estimates that a third of calories are consumed by eating out.

OAKLAND — Felix Hernandez found his Cy Young form in a hurry, pitching a five-hitter for his 14th career complete game and the majors’ first this year, and the Seattle Mariners beat the AL West rival Oakland Athletics 6-2 on Friday night. Chone Figgins hit a go-ahead solo home run in the sixth inning off loser Craig Breslow (0-1), Ichiro Suzuki singled twice, drove in a run and stole a pair of bases as the Mariners won their opener under first-year manager Eric Wedge to end a five-game losing streak in Oakland.

Hernandez, who won the 2010 AL Cy Young Award despite only 13 victories, struck out five and didn’t walk a batter in a 108-pitch gem. The right-hander is now 3-0 with a 1.71 ERA in his four career opening-day outings. The previous pitcher to throw a complete game on opening day was Ben Sheets for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2007 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to STATS LLC. Willingham wasted little time showing why the

Willingham sent the second pitch he saw from Hernandez over the out-of-town scoreboard in left — the first opening day homer allowed by Hernandez in his four career assignments. Willingham became the 10th player in Oakland history to hit a home run in his first at-bat with the A’s. Frank Thomas last did it on April 3, 2006.

Bearcats Panthers eek out win get by the Cherokees
With the new deadened bats implemented at the high school level this season, teams can no longer depend on slugging their way to victories. Since there will be a lot of station-to-station baseball being played, a premium will be placed on execution: moving runners over, getting sacrifice flies to the outfield and heads-up base running — in addition to pitching and defense — to pick up wins. Friday afternoon in Burlingame, the Panthers did all that just a little bit better than visiting Hillsdale. Burlingame never led in the game — until Vince Arobio hustled home from third on a wild pitch in the bottom of the seventh to give the Panthers a 4-3 win. “I like guys who put the ball in play. That is the nature of the game. We’re not a team with a lot of pop,” said Burlingame manager Shawn Scott. “We scratch out one run, two runs, we have a chance to win the game. Our pitching is pretty deep.” Burlingame’s pitching depth was tested early when starter Nick Baylock was lifted in the second inning after throwing 31 pitches to nine batters, allowing a run when he walked Scott Cecil, the No. 9 hitter, with the bases loaded to drive in Sho Sato. Out went Baylock, in came Eric Fallon with the bases loaded and no out in the top of the second inning. He got a flyout to center field before inducing a 6-4-3 double play to end the inning — one of three double plays the Panthers turned on the day. Fallon knew he would be pitching Friday, he’s just surprised it came so early. And like his manager, he only expected to be in the game for a short time. Instead, he threw five innings, allowing two runs on six hits. “I threw strikes,” Fallon explained about his extended appearance. “(And) let my defense pick up what I threw.” Scott said his intention was to let Fallon pitch only an inning or two. But Fallon kept NATHAN MOLLAT / DAILY JOURNAL getting outs and kept going out every inning. Burlingame second baseman Merrick Belding fires to first to complete one of three Panther By Julio Lara

San Mateo softball head coach Randy Boardman will celebrate his birthday Sunday. On Friday afternoon, his team gave him the best early-birthday gift by out-playing a good Sequoia team in route to a 4-1 win — their second consecutive win to start Peninsula Athletic League Ocean division play. “I thought it was going to be a very close game,” Boardman said while munching on a birthday cookie. “We’ve played against them for many years, we’ve always played them tough and they’ve always played us tough. (We got) a couple breaks. The pitcher pitched fantastic, our defense was there. We just did everything right.” As with all things San Mateo, the Bearcats were spear-headed by the pitching of Bailey Sutton, who was her usual consistent self. The junior went the distance, allowing only one run and five hits while striking out four and walking only one. “I felt good,” Sutton said. “They’re a really good team. I think we played good as a team offensively and defensively.” With only four strikeouts, the San Mateo defense saw a lot of action and they were up to the task, committing only one error on a play that could have gone either way. Other than that, the Bearcats were solid behind Sutton. Offensively San Mateo did just enough in support of their star. “We got a couple of clutch hits,” Boardman said, “and we got what we needed. I’m very pleased.” Sutton settled in nicely from the get-go, mostly because the Bearcats got two runs for her in the bottom of the first.

Rod Barajas followed with a single and Aaron Miles reached on an infield hit to third baseman Pablo Sandoval, whose throw to first got past rookie Brandon Belt for an error, putting runners at second and third. Hector Gimenez batted for Billingsley and followed with a dribbler to the left of the mound and Sanchez misplayed it for an error, allowing Barajas to score the tying run. Guillermo Moto relieved Sanchez and gave up Furcal’s RBI single that gave the Dodgers a 4-3 lead.

weather heats up, so will the CSM bats. But the offense isn’t what has been carrying the Bulldogs in the season’s earlier half. Nope, there hasn’t been a better team on the mound in all of California than San Mateo. Entering Saturday’s contest against De Anza, the Bulldogs boast the best ERA in the state at 1.98 — the only team with an ERA under two. That stat gets even better in division play when it dips to 1.92 with opponents hitting a minute .185. “I think out pitching coach Bryan Faulds has been doing a great job with the staff. It’s been a pretty consistent message there since day one,” Williams said. “We’ve seen them be able to execute a plan and he deserved a lot of credit for that.” When Williams says personnel, he’s referring to a trio of pitchers, all with ERAs under 2.02 and a fourth who is limiting hitters to a .143 batting average. Josh Frendenhall (Hillsdale) leads the entire state with a perfect 0.00 ERA in 21 2/3 innings. If he’s been great, the CSM starters, Devin Bradley (Carlmont) and Clay Bauer, may be better — each have pitched over 40 innings and boast a 1.12 and 2.03 ERA respectively. Daniel Chavez has had his fair share of innings too and hitters are only batting .143 against him. Offensively, Williams believes this team is turning the corner.Justin Maffei (Serra) leads the Bulldogs with a .375 batting average in league play. Williams also likes what he’s seen by the likes of Michael Kathan and Chris Kileen, both hitting over .300 for the Bulldogs. “There’s been a host of guys that have stepped up because we’ve had our share of injuries,” Williams said. Driving the Trojans this season has been the mighty bats of the Mark Hoem and Grant Nelson, who are hitting .435 and .427, respectively. But when Skyline looks back on their start, they can’t help but feel that they should be in a better position. The culprit has been their inability to drive runners in from scoring position — that, and they have hit into 20 double plays. “We haven’t gotten those key hits and that has hurt us, there is no question, that is what is setting us apart,” Nomicos said. “And if we had gotten some key hits we wouldn’t have 14 losses, we’d probably have seven.” Things might get tougher for the Trojans in the second half. Hoem suffered a shoulder injury sliding into first base in a game against Cabrillo. Nomicos says it will require surgery, it’s just a matter of when Hoem, who will play at USF next year, decides to go ahead with it. It’s yet another blow for Skyline who lost second baseman John Bordy to injury three weeks ago. “Us losing (Hoem), that kills us, there is no question,” Nomicos said. “He’s one of the best hitters in Northern California. These injuries,

By Julio Lara

The junior college baseball season is nearing its midpoint. There have been highs and lows, but as expected, all three local teams are in contention and with playoff aspirations.

San Mateo (9-2, Coast Conference-Golden Gate)
Leading the charge locally are the College of San Mateo Bulldogs, who find themselves a game back of Chabot in the Coast ConferenceGolden Gate division at 9-2 for the year — good for a No. 9 ranking in the latest CCCAA poll. “We have seen some things early that we term as some growing pains and I think that we are starting to show some signs that we’re turning a corner,” said San Mateo manager Doug Williams. “And I’m encouraged by a lot of the things I’m seeing. The group is starting to play at a more consistent level.” There was a point when the Bulldogs were really clicking and with their latest win, a 24-2 drubbing of San Francisco, it appears that as the

fluke or whatever, are hurting us.” Yet, Skyline remains optimistic and is hoping the pitching of a couple of freshman, Andrew Hidalgo and Julian Merryweather, plus the continued hitting of Nelson and Devin Kelly (who’s been coming on strong in conference play) will be enough to make a move upward in the standings. “I think now we’re staring to play real well,” Nomicos said. “Traditionally we start playing better in the month of April for some reason. It’s been a roller coaster type year with a lot of ups and downs.”

Skyline (6-6, Coast Conference-Pacific)
Hanging around a couple of places behind the Colts are the Trojans. It’s been a weird start to the season — a start that is only getting weirder. “We’ve lost some games early that we should have won — we gave away three games in league, some by errors,” said Skyline manager Dino Nomicos. “I’m not disappointed, it’s just junior college baseball. We’re not where I thought we’d be, but we’re moving in the right direction.”

Cañada (9-4, Coast Conference-Pacific)
The Colts are exactly where they want to be — going into Saturday’s game against Ohlone with a chance to catch the team that is a game ahead of them in the standings. At 9-4, Cañada is in a position to strike and have picked the regular season to turn things around. Offensively, the numbers say Cañada is hitting .266 for the year, good for 50th in the state.

New-look America’s Cup opens with ‘World Series’
By Bernie Wilson

SAN DIEGO — The new-look America’s Cup will begin this summer with 15 teams from a record 12 countries sailing fast catamarans in a true World Series. Organizers announced Friday that 14 challengers from around the globe, plus defending champion Oracle Racing of San Francisco, have signed up for the 34th America’s Cup. They also announced Portugal, England and San Diego as the first three stops on the new America’s Cup World Series. Other AC World Series regattas will follow during the buildup to the 2013

America’s Cup on San Francisco Bay. “It is time to go racing,” Iain Murray, the regatta director and CEO of America’s Cup Race Management, said from his home in Sydney, Australia. Of the 14 challengers who’ve entered, 12 have been validated while the others are being checked against qualifying requirements. Some of the vetted teams have yet to publicly announce their challenges. The latest to announce was Italy’s Venezia Challenge. Other countries with teams that have announced are Sweden, New Zealand, France, China and Australia. It’s believed that Korea and Canada will be represented. “It’s obviously an acceptance of the

new vision of the America’s Cup,” said Murray, who lost to Dennis Conner in the 1987 America’s Cup match in Fremantle, Australia. “People must be liking what they see, which is the World Series, the catamarans, the 45s, new rules. They can see all that stuff now. And there’s more to come, with television production, and maybe just the event being in San Francisco. There’s a package around the America’s Cup of activity and people that’s never been there before.” The first season of the AC World Series will run into July 2012 and be sailed in 45-foot wing-sailed catamarans. The second season will begin in San Francisco in August 2012 with a

72-foot version of the fast cat. The 72footers will be used in the America’s Cup itself, replacing the plodding sloops that were used from 19922007. A champion will be crowned at the end of each season. The AC45s are being built in New Zealand. “It’s been quite a journey the last six months, really, to say the least,” Murray said. “To be sitting here six months later with 15 entries and five boats sailing around in Auckland has exceeded all our expectations, really. We’ve got more teams than we’ve got boats. That’s a good problem to have.” The ACWS will begin in Cascais, Portugal, Aug. 6-14, then move to Plymouth, England, Sept. 10-18.

The San Diego regatta will be held sometime between mid-October and early December. All three ports will allow for viewing from the shore, one of the changes organizers have made in an attempt to make the sometimes-confusing sport more fan friendly. In the past, America’s Cup races have been held miles offshore. San Diego hosted the America’s Cup three times between 1988-1995. “The race course on San Diego Bay will amaze fans from around the world when they see the power and speed of the new wing-powered AC45 multihull racing yachts,” said Troy Sears of the Sailing Events Association San Diego.

Defense key for both Butler and VCU
By Nancy Armour

HOUSTON — That Butler and VCU proudly wear the same small-conference, lovable underdog label is readily apparent. Less obvious is their shared devotion to the not-so-sexy practice of hard-nosed, aggressive defense — long a trademark of Butler’s game but much more of a surprising late-season development from the running, gunning Rams. “That’s what’s got us here. For five straight games, we’ve been playing great defense,” VCU forward Jamie Skeen said Friday. “If we play great defense again against Butler, we can probably come out with the win.” Eighth-seeded Butler (27-9) plays VCU, which has gone from the “First Four” to the Final Four, in the national semifinals Saturday night. “It’s more of a challenge because you know everybody is looking at their defense, how good they are,” VCU point guard Joey Rodriguez said. “We want to come out and try to prove to people we can play defense just as

good as them.” Virginia Commonwealth (28-11) is a shooter’s dream team, a roster full of guys who think they’re in range as soon as the bus nears the arena. (It’s no coincidence TV analyst Steve Kerr joined the Rams for a shooting contest during practice at last weekend’s Southwest Regional.) The Rams have launched 895 3-pointers this year — no, that’s not a misprint — and are shooting an unbelievable 44 percent from long range just in the NCAA tournament. They’ve finished with 12 3s in three of their first five games, with Brandon Rozzell making six on his own against Georgetown and Bradford Burgess doing the same against Florida State. But don’t mistake VCU for the Globetrotters. The Rams are not exactly Wisconsin wannabes, ranking 238th (out of 336 teams) in field goal defense and 134th in scoring defense. They’re 298th in rebounding margin. Yet they’re in the Final Four because they shut down Southern California, Georgetown, Purdue and Florida State before manhandling

top-seeded Kansas. The Jayhawks, once the top-ranked team in the country, managed just 61 points while shooting 35.5 percent overall and 9.5 percent from 3-point range, all season lows. After not trailing by more than two points the entire tournament, Kansas was down by 17 before halftime. Overall, Virginia Commonwealth is allowing an average of 62 points in the tournament, almost five fewer than their season average. They’re holding opponents to 39 percent shooting, well below their season average of 44 percent. “They keep teams off balance,” said Matt Howard, Butler’s leading scorer and rebounder. “You have to be prepared for multiple looks. They’re going to press. They’ll play a little bit of zone. Then they also have a good man-to-man. I think when you’re really scoring the ball really well, too, that gives you energy defensively. I think you can make an argument they’ve scored as well as anybody. “When you’re able to score and get into those different defenses, I think that really helps their defense.”

If anyone knows that, it’s Butler. The Bulldogs are one of the soundest fundamental teams in the game — these are the guys who play in the gym where “Hoosiers” was filmed, after all. They can shoot, and they do it quite well. Howard shoots almost 49 percent, while Andrew Smith is averaging almost 9 points a game on 62 percent shooting. But they came within 2 points of the championship last year thanks to downright nasty defense. Butler shut down K-State’s Jacob Pullen in the regional final, hounding him into 4-of-13 shooting and four turnovers. It harassed Michigan State into 16 turnovers in the Final Four and allowed zero — zip, zilch, nada — fast-break points. And when the Bulldogs’ season was on the verge of slipping away this year with three straight losses and four in five games, it was defense, not offense, that turned things around. “We really focused on the defensive end of the floor,” Howard said. “We weren’t guarding the way we normally had, and I think that was really important for us to get back to that.”

Calhoun, Calipari never really see eye to eye
By Eddie Pells

HOUSTON — Nobody will dispute that they are great coaches, and the latest evidence lies in the teams they guided to this year’s Final Four. Nobody will argue that John Calipari and Jim Calhoun are saints, either. The men on the sidelines for the KentuckyConnecticut Final Four matchup have had their share of trouble — with each other, the programs they run and the NCAA. They are a microcosm of everything that’s right and wrong in college basketball — a coachdriven game where good leaders can elevate programs and players to new levels but the road to success often produces its fair share of cringeworthy dealing. Calipari leads the fourth-seeded Wildcats (298) against Calhoun and the third-seeded Huskies (30-9) in the second semifinal Saturday. Both

coaches coaxed a turnaround out of their young, struggling teams to make unexpected trips to the game’s biggest stage — the third for Calipari and fourth for Calhoun. On the eve of the game, their histories were as lively a topic as the success of their teams. One of the first questions Calipari fielded Friday was whether he is the 2000’s version of former UNLV coach Jerry Tarkanian, a coach who did a lot of winning in his day but did it with his phone number firmly entrenched on the NCAA’s speed dial. The question slid off the Wildcats coach as smoothly as good Kentucky bourbon. “I respect everything that Jerry did — his kids, how they played, all those things,” Calipari said. “But, no, I think I’m the 2011 John Calipari. I don’t know what that means, and I hate to talk in the third party. But I am who I am.” Unlike Calhoun, Calipari has no qualms about how many of his players have had startlingly

brief college careers and, indeed, views that as something of a feather in his cap. He recruits the best players, replaces them just as quickly — goodbye John Wall, hello Brandon Knight — and gets them to accept different, sometimes uncomfortable roles to come together as a team. He is back in Houston, where three years ago he won two games at the regional to lead Memphis to the Final Four, only to leave that school a year later, just as the program was running into NCAA problems involving the recruitment of Derrick Rose. Calipari’s first Final Four visit, with Massachusetts back in 1996, also has been scrubbed by the NCAA. Which led to another tongue-in-cheek question: How does it feel to be coaching in your first Final Four? “I don’t deal with that,” said the 52-year-old coach, who spent four years in the NBA between his stints at UMass and Memphis. “We’ve been here three times. Those players played those

games and did what they were supposed to. I’m so proud of what they’ve all accomplished.” He says this without apology. Though his schools suffered, Calipari was not found at fault in either of the NCAA probes. The so-called problems between Cal and Cal began during those UMass days, when the coaches were on top of each other in neighboring states — one trying to protect his turf and the other trying to carve out his own. Things got testy during the recruitment of Marcus Camby, who wound up choosing UMass and whose issues there eventually landed the school on probation. Both coaches acknowledged the relationship got off to a rough start. “I mean, the northeast, you’re so tight, you’re right on top of each other, that it is a competitive environment,” Calipari said. “Our radio shows and television shows are in each other’s states, in our cities. That’s how it is there.”


Weekend • April 2-3, 2011

base. Burlingame’s Chris Blanton gave chase and stumbled to the ground after making a tough over the shoulder grab — a play Blanton is increasingly make look routine. He quickly bounced back to his feet and fired to second for an odd double play as the runner at first tried to test Blanton’s arm and baseball sense by trying to go to second on the play. He was out, Nik Gutierrez then robbed Armando Fajardo of an extra-base hit when he ran to deep center field and made a tumbling catch to end the inning. In the second inning, Hillsdale loaded the bases, but scored only once. They loaded the bases again in the third and again only came away with one run — Tyler Kelly’s sacrifice fly to left drove in Sato. A questionable base running mistake cost the Knights an out in the inning as well. All told, Hillsdale stranded six runners through the first three innings. Cohen easily from first for the early 2-0 lead. The next inning, San Mateo added to that lead on another two-out hit. This one came off the bat off Jacob, who put together a solid at-bat. The rally was started with a triple from the nine spot of the order. “(It was a) great at-bat, and she played great defense at short,” Boardman said. “She didn’t try to do too much she just went right up the middle. I thought that was a great at-bat, probably the best at-bat of the game. The triple was fantastic, but two out, two strikes on you, she went right up the middle where the pitch was thrown and you saw what happened.” With the early lead, Sutton was able to settle “We left a lot of runners on. We didn’t play like we could,” said Hillsdale manager Neal Donahoe. “Whenever you have opportunities to score, you have to capitalize.” Down 2-0, Burlingame finally got to Hillsdale starter Robbie Foiles with two runs in the bottom of the third. Arobio and Gutierrez each had infield hits, with Arobio going to third and Gutierrez to second on an overthrow error. Dan Cuddy cut the Burlingame deficit in half by driving in Arobio with a groundout and the Panthers tied to game on Chris Blanton’s run-scoring single. Hillsdale went back on top 3-2 when Kelly drove in his second run of the day with a single in the top of the fifth. But Burlingame answered right back in the bottom of the frame, tying the score at 3 on a Bryan Kuh single that drove in Gutierrez, who had doubled to lead off the inning. down quite nicely. Through six inning of work, the junior scattered four hits and the Cherokees really only threatened in the top of the third. Sutton got some great help on defense along the way. Jacobs was solid at short and made a phenomenal diving stop to her glove side to rob Alaina Woo of a hit. A couple of innings later, Cohen had a web gem of her own from her catcher position, diving to snag a bunt that had been popped into the air. “It’s a big relief,” Sutton said about her defense. “And I owe it to (my team). My team had my back.” San Mateo added another run in the bottom of the 6th when Jennifer Gomez scored after draw-

In the seventh, Arobio and Gutierrez, the No. 8 and 9 batters, once again jump-started the Burlingame offense. Arobio led off the inning with a single and went to second on a passed ball. Gutierrez followed with a hit. It was a weak comebacker to Foiles, who briefly bobbled it and then looked back Arobio to second. He took too long looking at Arobio, however, and Gutierrez beat the throw to first. That ended Foiles’ day. “Not his best effort,” Donahoe said of Foiles. “But the loss is not on him.” Eddie Pagano came on, and his first wild pitch of the inning moved both runners up 90 feet. Kuh was eventually intentionally walked to load bases and, with Blanton at the plate, Pagano uncorked another wild pitch, allowing Arobio to scamper home with the winning run. ing a four-pitch walk to lead off the frame. With only three out left, Sequoia put a little offense together. Woo led off the 7th with a double. After Sutton got a strike out, Nia Lutu came off the bench and picked up her teammate by slashing a double to left field that scored Woo. But Sutton got Laura vanden Hout to pop out and fanned Sarah Singh to lock up the birthday win for Boardman. “We have to remind her (to stay focused),” Boardman said of the winning Sutton. “She knows how to pitch, she’s a veteran pitcher. Sometimes she has a tendency to guide the ball rather than just throw it. But she’s a great pitcher, great player.”

“My plan was to get him through the basesloaded jam (in the second) and another inning (before lifting him),” Scott said. “But he gave us five strong innings.” Chris Blanton, who ended up with win, came in for the seventh and needed only two pitches to extinguish a possible Hillsdale rally. Hillsdale will look at the loss as a wasted opportunity. The Knights put pressure on Burlingame in the first three innings, getting 11 base runners during that span. But the Knights could not come up with the big hit to break the game open. They had runners on first and second in the first inning before Austin Parker hit a foul ball behind first

Karyn Jacobs led the game off by drawing a walk. She was sacrificed over and moved to third on a fielder’s choice. That left clean-up hitter Francie Cohen to cash in — she did so by muscling a dying duck into left field for a RBI single. San Mateo wasn’t done with their two-out magic. The next batter, Megan Hughes, showed some nice power to the opposite field, smashing a triple over the left fielder’s head that scored

UConn,Stanford hope experience equals wins

INDIANAPOLIS — This is one year when Connecticut isn’t the only team relying on experience in the women’s Final Four. Sure, the Huskies are two-time defending champions, but is there a point where the law of averages catches up? Consider: — Just to get to the championship game, UConn will have to beat Big East rival Notre Dame for a fourth time this season, never an easy task. — If they do that, they might have to play Stanford, which has four straight years of Final Four experience itself, plus confidence from beating UConn and snapping its 90-game winning streak earlier this year. “I think that there’s maybe a certain amount of more calmness. That’s all I would say having gone back,” said Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer. “People know a little bit more what to expect.” None of that phases UConn coach Geno Auriemma. “One thing is the absolute truth: There’s only one team playing right now that knows how to

win a national championship,” he said. “Only a couple kids playing know how to win a national championship, and I’m fortunate to have them on my team.” One of those players is Maya Moore, a four-time All-American with 3,000 points and the key to the Tara VanDerveer Huskies’ unprecedented run over the past few seasons. She“s working on adding three-time national champion to that impressive resume. “Where does she fit in among the great ones? Should we mention her name? I would say you’re not going to be able to mention a lot of names before you get to her name,” Geno Auriemma said. “For sure, Auriemma I’m certain of that.” UConn’s first opponent is a familiar one: Notre Dame. The two teams played three times this sea-

son and the Irish hung with Connecticut in those games — including a three-point home loss in January. Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw needs only to look across the bracket for inspiration since Texas A&M beat Baylor in the regional final after falling to the Lady Bears three times this season. “We will definitely reference Texas A&M; the fourth time’s a charm,” McGraw said. “I think it’s going to be a mental hurdle to get over. It’s difficult, I hope, to beat a team four times.” While her players lack Final Four experience, McGraw does not. Her Irish team won the national title in 2001 after knocking off UConn in the semifinals, but that was Notre Dame’s last trip to the championship. In that season, the Irish lost to Connecticut in the Big East title game on a last-second shot by Sue Bird. Notre Dame already has erased one losing streak by topping Tennessee in the regional final after dropping 20 straight to the Lady Vols. Stanford has done only one thing recently in the Final Four — lose. The Cardinal haven’t won a title since 1992, and were beaten by Tennessee in 2008 and

Connecticut last year. “For Kayla and I and the other seniors, we’re very focused coming into this Final Four,” Stanford senior Jeanette Pohlen said, referring to Kayla Pedersen. “It’s tough making it that far and not coming away with the national championship. I think it’s motivating us even more and making us even more excited because we do know this is our last chance at it. We’ve gone this far. We’re just going to give it all we have.” Texas A&M coach Gary Blair coached Arkansas to the Final Four in 1998 and downplayed how much the past four trips to the national semifinals will help the Cardinal. “The experience factor is in age, and I’m older than Tara and I’m going to use that to my advantage,” he joked. “That’s the number one thing I’ve got over her right now. And I don’t think she can do a thing about that.” He vowed his team wouldn’t be intimidated by the hype and flash of the Final Four. “What we’re going to have to do is put our cell phones away,” he said. “We’re not going on a sightseeing trip. We’re not going to look at all of the statues and stuff. We’re going to win a national championship.”

isn’t pretty, their 73 runs scored is good for fourth in the division. And that has them locked into that second place position — for the time being. They have Allen Stiles to thank for that. Stiles is hitting .418 for the season, .431 in division play, good for third. His team-

mate and former Aragon standout Alex Sortwell has seen a nice return to the Peninsula, driving in 23 runs for the Colts. But if Cañada is going to make a move to the top and stay there, they’ll have to do it by improving their pitching. The Colts are sixth in the conference with a 3.47 team ERA, thanks in large part to a defense that is ranked sixth in the state. In conference play, only Ohlone is better at catching the baseball.

Returning to ‘The Lands Beyond’

Tame bunny tale
By David Germain

“Hop” has one of the cutest bunnies you’ll ever see and plenty of other eye candy among its computer-generated visuals, yet there’s not much bounce to the story behind this interspecies buddy comedy. Letting bad-boy Russell Brand supply the voice of the Easter bunny sounds like a promising way to add spice to a warm and fuzzy family flick. Too bad the movie winds up about as bland as carrot-flavored jelly beans. Its gooey sentiment and hare-brained gags are likely to appeal only to very young kids. The filmmakers trip up on their scattered attempts to inject some hipness to “Hop” for older children and parents (a bit about a rabbit apparently cooked in a pot is handled so tepidly, it barely registers as a halfhearted allusion to the boiled bunny in “Fatal Attraction,” while a couple of Hugh Hefner-Playboy

Brand does double-duty: Easter bunny and ‘Arthur’
By Sandy Cohen

See HOP, Page 20

LOS ANGELES — A couple years ago, British comedian Russell Brand was an American unknown who hoped to gain fans stateside by hosting the MTV Video Music Awards. Now, he’s become the kind of A-list leading man who opens big-studio movies on back-to-back weekends. Brand plays the animated heir to the Easter Bunny’s throne in the family film “Hop,” opening Friday. A week later, he takes on the title role in “Arthur,” a reimagining of the 1981 Dudley Moore classic. Plus he’s writing and producing — and possibly directing —

two more studio-backed comedies. “Ultimately, that’s what I’ll do more and more: Whatever people will let me get away with,” says Brand, wearing slim-fitting black trousers that match his shoulder-length Russell Brand curls. “I’ll do the catering, if they’ll let me, and make good vegetarian fare for all.” (The 35year-old has been a vegetarian for 20 years.) Brand’s success began in his native England, where he built a faithful following

n my English class, we recently intensified our long buildup to the AP literature exam. Along with the multiple choice and essay questions on preprepared passages that make up the bulk of the test, my teacher alerted us to an essay prompt designed to trip up those who merely skim through their assigned reading: students are given a topic and asked to pick a book “of literary merit” around which to base an essay. The first step for tackling this assignment, my teacher said, was to have a mental list of novels that fit that criterion; and so I began cataloguing my reading by that token — yes for “Cat’s Cradle” and “Invisible Man,” no to “Harry Potter” and “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.” And, though I always knew it would fit on the latter list, I was always disappointed I couldn’t make the case for my favorite book, the story that has perhaps meant more to me than any other. It was, after all, a children’s book that taught me the importance of reevaluations. When I reached for Norton Juster’s “The Phantom Tollbooth” on the shelf for the second time, I wasn’t expecting the realization that came at the end of the 250-page fable on time well spent in “The Lands Beyond.” I had read the book only a year before, when I was in second grade; I didn’t expect that reading it again as a third grader would mean much more than a few hours’ entertainment. But lo and behold, I made a remarkable discovery — the text may not have changed, but the story itself seemed a different thing entirely. Puns leapt from the pages that I now realized were full to the brim with clever wordplay (including many subtle jokes that escaped my notice for many more years of rereading). More importantly, I discovered morals galore that had eluded my 7-year-old self but that were clear as daylight to my 8-year-old self. There were lessons to be learned on every page, lessons about the perils of jumping to conclusions, about the coexistence of awful din and oppressive, overbearing silence, and, most importantly, about learning. That day, I made myself a promise that I have yet to break — once a year, I told myself, I will take a few hours out of my schedule, no matter how busy it becomes with theater and politics and schoolwork, to return to the nowshabby book that taught me that learning is anything but a one-time experience. And as I discovered in the third grade, each passing year brings me new appreciation for the book that introduced me to the joys of rereading. One year, I may discover a new play on words, something that gives me a knowing chuckle at

Yosemite Valley’s venerable Ahwahnee hotel reopened March 17, following a major renovation conducted as a joint effort between the National Park Service and DNC Parks & Resorts at Yosemite, Inc., the park’s main concessionaire. Completed in 1927, the Ahwahnee blends an array of design influences, including Art Deco, Native American, Middle Eastern and Arts & Crafts Movement, seen in the stenciling, woodwork, lighting fixtures and china patterns. For the renovation, Designers Richard Kollath and Edward McCann researched Yosemite’s archives to select textiles and colors complementary to those used in the hotel between 1927 and 1942, established by National Park Service historians as the period of historic significance for this living museum of art and architecture. *** AND, REMEMBER: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.

my naivete for having passed it over all these years; the next year, one of the book’s better-hidden “teachable” moments may finally hit its mark and remind me how much more there is to understanding than simply absorbing the obvious and plowing on ahead. Alec Bings, a boy who grows downwards from his birthplace six feet above the ground, wonders at the way each passing year and each revisited experience bring with them a new perspective and a new appreciation for those of us who grow upwards. He incredulously asks Milo if “your head keeps changing its height and you always see things in a different way? Why, when you’re 15 things won’t look at all the way they did when you were 10, and at 20, everything will change again.” His words inspired me to take my Phantom Tollbooth pledge a step further, beyond the written page to a broader kind of revisitation. In the many years since I first stepped back into “The Lands Beyond” and discovered a whole new world between the familiar blue and gold covers, I have learned that learning means always taking the time to look back, no matter how enticing it may be to look only straight ahead. After all, you never know what you could gain from a book you first read way, way back in the second grade — even if it isn’t “of literary merit.”

By the time he built Tao House, where he and his third wife, Carlotta Monterey, resided between 1937 and 1944, playwright Eugene O’Neill had lived in over 35 different places. At Tao House, on a hillside overlooking the town of Danville, O’Neill found a sanctuary, and its isolation allowed him to write his best works, including The Iceman Cometh (1939), Long Day’s Journey Into Night (1941) and A Moon for the Misbegotten (1943). Sadly, although O’Neill called Tao House ‘my final home and harbor,’ he was eventually forced to leave it because of health issues and the pressures of World War II. O’Neill died in 1953 in Boston at age 65. Visiting Tao House, which has been restored by the National Park Service as it was when O’Neill lived there, is a wonderful way to learn about the life and work of one of America’s most prominent playwrights, often considered the father of modern American drama because of the uniquely American style of tragedy he created. Lead Park Ranger Randy Harabin, who conducts guided tours of the site, is enthusiastic about his work at Tao House. Harabin said, “The National Park Service preserves this historic site so that the legacy of America’s only Nobel Prize winning playwright will be known to future generations.” VISITING TAO HOUSE. Tao House is open Wednesday through Sunday, with tours daily at 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Visitation is by reservation only. Visitors are transported to the site in a National Park Service shuttle from the Museum of the San Ramon Valley, 205 Railroad Ave. in Danville. Both the tour and shuttle are free. Be alert for uneven walking surfaces and stairs on the tour route. For information call (925) 838-0249 or visit www.nps.gov/euon. SATURDAYS WITHOUT RESERVATIONS. Beginning May 1, no reservations will be required for visits on Saturdays, when the shuttle leaves the museum at 10 a.m. 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. O’NEILL READINGS. Playwrights’ Theatre mounts staged-readings of two of O’Neill’s “sea plays,” “Where the Cross is Made” on May 1, and “Gold” on May 22, in the Old Barn on the grounds at Tao House. Both productions begin at 3 p.m. and last approximately two hours. Tickets are $25 for individual performances, $45 for both. Reservations can be made at www.eugeneoneill.org or by calling (925) 820-1818. The National Park Service provides transportation to the site from the Museum of the San Ramon Valley, 205 Railroad Ave., Danville.

for his irreverent comedic style through standup appearances, TV and radio hosting gigs, a bestselling memoir and a regular soccer column in the national newspaper, The Guardian. He maintained that irreverence when he came to the United States, referring to President George W. Bush during the MTV awards as “that retarded cowboy fellow.” Brand channels the same sense of subversive mischief into his two latest film roles. In “Hop,” he plays E.B., an animated rabbit set to inherit Easter duties from his dad, though E.B. would rather be a drummer in a rock ’n’ roll band. He takes off from his home on Easter Island through a magic rabbit hole and lands in Los Angeles, where he befriends slacker Fred O’Hare (James Marsden) and sets them both on an unexpected course. In “Arthur,” Brand plays the loveable but irresponsible billionaire who whiles away his days drinking and playing with his expensive toys (including a Batmobile) as his nanny, Hobson (Helen Mirren), looks after him. Arthur’s all-play, no-work lifestyle is threatened when his mother gives him an ultimatum: Marry the corporate executive she’s chosen for him or lose his inheritance. The two characters have something in common, Brand says. “They’re wayward, mischievous spirits that have to grow up,” he says. “Both characters have got to fulfill duties placed on them by their parents and both characters want to pursue love, either their love of drumming in the case of the animated rabbit or their love of a woman in the case of Arthur.” Both roles also required a sweetness and sensitivity from Brand that filmmakers say he hasn’t always shown on screen. “Arthur” director Jason Winer says Brand is “the one actor on this planet who could reinvent this character for a new generation.” Not only does he have the charm and comedic chops to pull off the part, but “he is someone who has done a lot of soul searching and has actually grounded himself quite a bit,” Winer says. “I suddenly felt excited by the idea of giving him a role on the big screen where he got a chance to show people that he has layers as an actor and that he has that sensitivity, because I don’t think either through his standup or his two American movies people have seen that side of him,” he says.

Miguel Covarrubias (1904 - 1957) was a Mexican painter, ethnologist and art historian. A man of many talents who worked in many media, including oil, pen and ink and watercolor, Covarrubias became one of Vanity Fair magazine’s premier caricaturists as well as a designer of sets and costumes for the theater, including La Revue Negre, the show that made Josephine Baker a smash in Paris. The broad range of Covarrubias’ interests and creativity can be seen by visiting his work now on display in three different venues in San Francisco. Covarrubias at the Consulate General of Mexico. “Los Covarrubias,” a retrospective at the Consulate General of Mexico, displays drawings and paintings by both Covarrubias and his wife, Rosa (Rolando). The exhibit, developed by Jimena Motta, a graduate student completing her Masters in Museum Studies at San Francisco State University, is comprised of 18 pieces owned by San Francisco collector Adriana Williams and four from The Mexican Museum, which collectively reflect the couple’s interest in many cultures, including the south of Mexico, Bali, New York’s Harlem and ancient civilizations, including the Olmecs. Commenting on the development of the show, Curator Motta noted, “What really got my attention was to realize that Los Covarrubias are well known in the USA, but not in Mexico. I think this is a great opportunity for everyone, but especially for Mexicans, to learn about two artists that loved Mexico, and that did so much for the country through their research and other projects.” Consulate Cultural Attachée Marimar Suárez Peñalva added, “The Consulate General of Mexico in San Francisco is pleased to have this exhibition in its gallery. It is one of our priorities to support young Mexican artists and curators and to promote their work in this space. Also, we are pleased to show the work of such great Mexican artists to the pub-

lic of the Bay Area.” The ConsulateGeneral of Mexico in San Francisco is located at 532 Folsom St. The Gallery is open to the general public Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. “Los Covarrubias” runs through April 29. (415) 354-1720. Free. Covarrubias at the de Young Museum. Covarrubias created six murals for the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition on Treasure Island. The mural set featured oversized, illustrated maps, the largest of which, The Fauna and Flora of the Pacific, can be seen in the Art of the Americas galleries at the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park. The mural, measuring 15 feet by 24 feet, depicts the four Pacific Rim continents suspended in a swirling blue Pacific Ocean populated with sea creatures. Covarrubias is also known for his analysis of the pre-Columbian art of Mesoamerica, particularly that of the Olmec culture. His chart analyzing Olmec iconography is displayed as part of the de Young’s current “Olmec: Colossal Masterworks of Ancient Mexico” exhibit, which runs through May 8. 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive. (415) 750-3600 or www.deyoungmuseum.org. Covarrubias at the Asian Art Museum. In 1930 and 1933, Covarrubias and his wife took trips to Bali, where they immersed themselves in the local culture, language and customs, and his 1937 book, Island of Bali, is an important source of information about Bali in that decade. Examples of Covarrubias’ artwork from that period can be seen in “Bali: Art, Ritual, Performance,” at the Asian Art Museum through Sept. 11. On display are his intriguing painting Tanah Bali (“Land of Bali”), in which Covarrubias illustrates the defining geographical features of the island, and his watercolors, Burial bulls and Barong landung figures. 200 Larkin St. (415) 581-3500 or www.asianart.org. *** S.F. vs. L.A.

much stock in Hawkins’ numbers and believes the city is better off looking at the other options. The city of San Carlos began last year dissolving its fire service joint powers authority with the city of Belmont in hopes of stemming a decade of cuts and plugging a $3.5 million deficit. City leaders have already outsourced its entire police department as well as parks maintenance and payroll. Fire service costs the city $6.3 million annually, which officials said is just too much. Belmont Councilman Dave Warden has called the money concerns a “red herring” to break up the JPA because the amount saved would be nominal compared to what is needed. He and Mayor Coralin Feierbach voted against mediation. Although the county never submitted a formal proposal, a preliminary penciling out showed contract options ranging from $3.8 million to $5.7 million per year, depending upon the size of the staff, whether salaries are frozen and the inclusion of the hazardous materials unit. The cheapest choice would have spared the city of San Carlos millions of dollars and save the county $650,000. After hearing from Cal Fire that a regional department could save up to $17 million for all cities involved, the supervisors’ finance subcommittee believed a better approach would be to tell Belmont and San Carlos to try working out its problems while the county worked on its own regional approach outside of their situation. want to see that. Everyone likes rivalries, but to me that’s crossing the line.” The Dodgers said they were cooperating with investigators and wished the victim a speedy recovery. “It is extremely unfortunate that this incident took place on what was otherwise a great day at Dodgers Stadium for tens of thousands of fans,” the team said in a statement. “We’re committed to having the most fan and family friendly environment in baseball and will continue to make that a top priority.” The stadium has been plagued by opening day violence in the past. In April 2009, a man stabbed his friend in the stadium parking lot after the home opener, in which the Dodgers beat the Giants 11-1. Arthur Alvarez was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon. Alvarez, who contended that he was knocked to the ground and acted in self-defense, was later acquitted by a jury. The West Coast rivalry began on April 18, 1958, the first game played in California after both teams had moved from New York. The Dodgers beat the Giants 6-5 in a game played before nearly 79,000 fans at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. bid to nationals and is ranked.

mitting a deal with its provider, Cal Fire. In the time since, the county said no on a proposal and supervisors Carole Groom and Adrienne Tissier pushed mediation between the two cities, and some city officials are given greater consideration to the expensive idea of going it alone. If the private company’s bid wins out, though, a San Carlos Fire Department may be more cost-efficient, said Vice Mayor Andy Klein. Fire union Local 2400 is opposed to a private option, much as it balked at the idea of a state contract, but Klein said the irony is its pushing of the county to drag its feet allowed other possible bids time to come in. “They shot themselves in the foot,” Klein said. In a March 3 memo to San Carlos City Manager Jeff Maltbie, union President Ed Hawkins said the only savings a private company can manage is by employing fewer people and paying them below a living wage. There would be an “inevitable” significant reduction in service quality, Hawkins wrote. He also called privatization of a publicly funded service anti-democratic because taxpayers can’t petition for redress of grievances. “Privatization is a poor choice for San Carlos and the citizens would suffer the consequences,” Hawkins wrote.

Meanwhile, both San Carlos and Belmont have agreed to try mediation overseen by a retired judge named by the county. In its closed session Monday, the San Carlos City Council named Mayor Omar Ahmad and Councilman Randy Royce to its mediation team. There is still no word on when mediation will happen, Royce said. Whatever the outcome, San Carlos — and Belmont — are closing in on the Oct. 13 dissolution of its joint department. While the two cities could decide to make a go of the joint powers authority, the funding runs out after that date, said Moura. Funding has been the big sticking point between the two cities. While Belmont has a dedicated revenue stream for fire service, San Carlos must dip into its general fund which officials say is no longer affordable. Previous efforts to tweak the funding formula were rebuffed by Belmont, leading to the San Carlos City Council’s decision to part ways. Although Belmont grudgingly agreed to mediation, it is still moving toward a stand-alone department. In his memo, Hawkins suggests the joint powers authority return to the 5050 funding formula and consider restructuring management by retaining its fire marshal and fire prevention staff but get other managers from a neighboring department. The option could save San Carlos alone $600,000 or $1.2 million for the JPA collectively, Hawkins wrote. But at least Klein said he doesn’t put dition Friday, the detective said. The victim has been identified, but his name was being withheld until police can talk to relatives, Moore said. Because his injuries were so severe, detectives had not yet talked to him, he said. Investigators were reviewing footage to see if any security camera captured the attack, but Detective Larry Burcher said so far they’d found “nothing of great value.” Stow’s brother-in-law, David Collins, told KGO that Stow has “swelling of the brain, a fractured skull and ... a frontal lobe that’s bruised pretty badly.” “It’s sad,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said before Friday’s game against the Dodgers. “It’s a shame somebody’s in critical condition because of a ball game. When they’re out fighting in the parking lot, we’ve lost sight of what this is all about. Sounds like the guy got blindsided, too.” Moore said no one in the crowd had come forward with any cellphone or camera footage, but also noted that there were so many people in the area that 90 percent of the crowd may not have even known what was going on. “I was disappointed,” new Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “You don’t of both her squad and Mercy’s, said “Out of those two schools, the girls put on a super clean and entertaining performance. It was a fun trip.” Carlmont’s squad, which returned to competition this year after a 10-year break, earned 22nd in the large intermediate division, said coach Jelica Baker.

The Giants fans tried to distance themselves from their assailants, and two made it away from them, but one was struck with fists on the back of the head and as he fell, his head hit the ground in Parking Lot 2 on the third base side of the ballpark, Moore said. Both attackers then kicked the victim, who suffered a head injury, and ran, Moore said. When the victim’s friends turned around to look for him, they saw him on the ground and made their way back to him. Police paramedics on bicycles were the first to arrive to help the victim. An ambulance was called and the victim was taken to a nearby hospital, Moore said. He remained in critical but stable con-

In the year ahead, you could develop a whole new group of friends through a novel interest of yours. Both they and your newfound activity will greatly expand your social life as well as your view of the world. ariES (March 21-April 19) -- If you know what you want and why you want to do it, you can establish better goals for yourself. If not, it’s likely the objectives you set will turn out to be counterproductive. tauruS (April 20-May 20) -- If you keep your thinking positive, your excellent imagination can work wonders for you. Just remember that negative thinking can work against you with equal efficiency.

GEMiNi (May 21-June 20) -- Steer clear of any type of joint financial endeavor with an individual or a firm whose reputation is questionable. The prospective deal is likely to be a bummer. CaNCEr (June 21-July 22) -- Although you usually get along rather well with others, today could be an exception. One way to offset this is to be a good listener and let everyone else do all the talking. lEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Generally you’re pretty good about lending a helping hand when one is needed, but any current intrusion on your time might be considered an imposition. You could turn a deaf ear to any requests. VirGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone within your social circle might find him or herself in trouble with

others in the group, and will try to make you the fall guy. Be on your toes, so you can perform a little mental jujitsu. liBra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- To avoid any domestic dispute with family members, don’t bring up any sensitive issue that is still very much alive and kicking. These kinds of subjects are still in the forbidden zone. SCOrpiO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you can’t help yourself from talking about another, keep your comments nice. You should know that anything negative you say could be repeated and even elaborated. SaGittariuS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Instead of being content with your lot in life, you might negatively compare yourself to someone whom you think has it all. You’re likely to think differently if you knew the truth.

CapriCOrN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It won’t be your lack

of ambition or drive that holds you back, but your way of doing things. Study the tactics of someone whom you know handles things better. aQuariuS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Rather than dealing with present circumstances, you might be inclined to dwell in the past and allow a bad experience to impede you from making progress. Don’t spend your energy on emotion. piSCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Accept your friends for who and what they are, and don’t try to make them over into what you think they can be. You don’t know everything. Copyright 2011, United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

Disciplined Libyan opposition force emerging
Senate did favor Libya no-fly zone
By Donna Cassata

Around the world
Thousands call for trials of Egypt regime figures
CAIRO — Egyptians returned in their thousands to Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Friday to demand that former President Hosni Mubarak and members of his ousted regime be brought to trial face accusations Hosni Mubarak of corruption, vote-rigging and abuse of dissidents. Such prosecutions are a central aim of the 18-day popular movement that toppled Mubarak on Feb. 11 after nearly three decades of autocratic rule, both to heal old wounds and to try to ensure the exofficials don’t creep back to power. Many in Egypt’s pro-reform camp say the current military rulers are not moving fast enough to meet those and other demands to transform their country’s politics. Egyptian prosecutors are going after top figures in the former regime and others associated with it, including businessmen, politicians and security officials.

WASHINGTON — Some lawmakers are grousing loudly that President Barack Obama sent the nation’s military to Libya without Congress’ blessing. They’re ignoring a key fact: The Senate a month ago voted to support imposing a no-fly zone to protect civilians from attacks by Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s forces. With no objections, the Senate on March 1 backed a resolution strongly condemning “the gross and systematic violations of human rights in Libya” and urging the U.N. Security Council to take action, “including the possible imposition of a no-fly zone over Libyan territory.” There was no recorded vote. It was simply approved by unanimous consent. No one in Washington is interpreting that resolution as a fullblown authorization for military action, especially as the no-fly zone expanded to airstrikes on Gadhafi’s

tanks and munitions sites. But the measure undercuts the congressional criticism that Obama was totally off on his own. Defense Secretary Robert Gates pointedly reminded lawmakers of that during his marathon testimony on Thursday. “There have been a lot of concerns expressed about the consultation with the Congress, but in its own way, the Congress consulted with the president, and particularly this body that unanimously in a resolution called for the imposition of a no-fly zone,” Gates told the Senate Armed Services Committee. Not so, said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. She argued that the resolution was limited, praising the courage of the Libyan people, calling on Gadhafi to stop the attacks and welcoming a vote in the U.N. Security Council. Reciting the phrase on the no-fly zone, she said it was “the only part that’s even tangentially on this issue” and was “pretty weak language in terms of authorizing the United States.”

AJDABIYA, Libya — Something new has appeared at the Libyan front: a semblance of order among rebel forces. Rebels without training — sometimes even without weapons — have rushed in and out of fighting in a free-for-all for weeks, repeatedly getting trounced by Moammar Gadhafi’s more heavily armed forces. But on Friday only former military officers and the lightly trained volunteers serving under them are allowed on the front lines. Some are recent arrivals, hoping to rally against forces loyal to the Libyan leader who have pushed rebels back about 100 miles this week. The better organized fighters, unlike some of their predecessors, can tell the difference between incoming and outgoing fire. They know how to avoid sticking to the roads, a weakness in the untrained forces that Gadhafi’s troops have exploited. And they know how to take orders. “The problem with the young

untrained guys is they’ll weaken us at the front, so we’re trying to use them as a backup force,” said Mohammed Majah, 33, a former serMoammar geant. Gadhafi “They don’t even know how to use weapons. They have great enthusiasm, but that’s not enough now,” he said. Majah said the only people at the front now are former soldiers, “experienced guys who have been in reserves, and about 20 percent are young revolutionaries who have been in training and are in organized units.” The greater organization was a sign that military forces that split from the regime to join the rebellion were finally taking a greater role in the fight after weeks trying to organize. Fighters cheered Friday as one of their top commanders — former Interior Minister Abdel-Fattah Younis — drove by in a convoy toward the front.
