Poll: Voters reject Cargill saltworks plan
Developer says environmental group Save the Bay’s poll has no credence
By Bill Silverfarb

An environmental group’s effort to stop a massive development on Bayshore saltworks is emboldened by a recent poll that indicates a majority of Redwood City voters oppose a plan to build nearly 12,000 new homes east of Highway 101.

But officials with the developer of the Cargill saltworks site, D M B Associates, said the poll is yet another effort by Save the Bay to

mischaracterize the project. “I give no credence to the poll,” said David Smith, senior vice president with DMB Associates. “They are trying to shut down the public understanding of the project.” The Cargill Saltworks plan calls for 50 percent of the 1,436-acre site to be preserved for permanent open space, public recreation and tidal

marsh restoration and the remaining half be developed into housing, schools, parks, retail areas and transit facilities. Save the Bay, however, wants all the land to be converted to tidal marshlands. The project is now in the earliest stages of environmental review. According to the poll, conducted

between May 11 and May 15 by J. Moore Methods, 57 percent of Redwood City voters oppose the project while 28 percent support it. The poll found that 88 percent of Redwood City voters are familiar with the project. “The poll shows that after five years of intense lobbying by Cargill

Matthew B. decided his hands were the answer to the challenge given to him Tuesday morning. While in the “Bubbles” workshop, students like 12-year-old Matthew B. were challenged to create a cube bubble. Students were given different tools to use and wires that could be bent before taking on the task. Matthew B. looked no further than the tip of his fingers for the answer. Making various shapes by putting his fingers together, Matthew B. dipped his hands in soapy water and blew. The result wasn’t quite a cube, but

Also seized were 1,400 marijuana plants in various stages of

Unscramble these four Jumbles, one letter to each square, to form four ordinary words.

More babies are born on Tuesday than any other day of the week. *** On average, people use 25 percent more electricity in their home after having a baby. *** The world record for the heaviest baby born to a healthy mother belongs to Carmelina Fedele of Italy. In 1955, she gave birth to a boy that weighed 22 pounds, 8 ounces. *** A newborn baby’s head weighs about one-quarter of the baby’s entire weight. *** Louise Joy Brown was born in Oldham England on July 25, 1978. She was the world’s first test-tube baby. *** The world’s first test-tube twins were born in Australia in 1981. More in-vitro babies are born in Australia than anywhere else in the world. Australia also produced the world’s first frozen embryo baby. *** Emilio Marcos de Palma was born in Antarctica in 1978. Do you know what was remarkable about the birth? See answer at end.

*** When Lucy was pregnant on “I Love Lucy” (1951-1957), network censors would not allow the word “pregnant” to be said on air. Lucy was referred to as “expectant.” *** A baby zebra is called a foal, a baby pigeon is a squab, a baby fox is a cub and a baby beaver is a kit. *** When a porcupine is born, its quills are soft. The quills get hard about an hour after birth. *** There are many old wives tales about predicting the sex of an unborn baby. For example, if the mother is carrying the baby low it’s a boy. If she’s carrying high it’s a girl. Another example, if the momto-be craves something sweet it is going to be a girl. If the craving is for something sour it will be a boy. *** Mothers-to-be often guess the sex of their baby correctly. In a study that asked women with no previous knowledge about their baby’s sex, 71 percent of mothers guessed their baby’s sex correctly. *** The average toddler takes 176 steps per minute. *** Lester Gillis (1908-1934), also known as Babyface Nelson, was a notorious bank robber in the 1930s. On Nov. 27, 1934, during an FBI raid and gunfight, two special agents were killed, as was Babyface. *** The odds of delivering twins are 1 in 32. The odds of delivering triplets are 1 in 540.

*** The McCaughey septuplets, born in 1997 in Iowa, were the world’s first set of seven babies that all survived. *** Women in the United States have an average of two children. Women in Utah and Alaska have three children, on average. About 10 percent of American women have four or more children. *** Japan is experiencing a drop in birth rates. Japanese women are having an average of 1.34 children, not enough to replenish the population. In 2003, the government began instituting programs to encourage people to have more babies. *** By the time a baby is 3 months old they have developed different cries for hunger, pain or boredom. Each cry has unique sound characteristics. *** Beanie Babies, a fad on the ’90s, were first introduced at the World Toy Fair in New York City in 1993. *** Answer: Emilio was the first baby born on the continent of Antarctica, and he was born farther south than anyone in history. Emilio was declared an Argentine citizen because his parents were Argentinean. His parents worked at a research station. Almost the whole continent of Antarctica — 95 percent — is covered by ice, and there is no native population.

Shriver: It’s a ’heartbreaking time’
Arnold Schwarzenegger reveals he had child with staffer
By John C. Rogers

Police reports
Chalk it up to bad behavior
Profanity and a threat were written in chalk in a car port and on a fence on the 800 block of South Grant Street in San Mateo before 9:33 p.m. Sunday, May 8.

LOS ANGELES — He’s one of the most famous people on the planet, a two-term governor of California, a movie star and a former world champion bodybuilder with a profile so huge that just one name, Arnold, instantly identifies him to almost everyone. Yet somehow, for more than a decade, Arnold Schwarzenegger managed to keep an incredible secret from the public and his wife, prominent former TV journalist and Kennedy heiress Maria Shriver: that he fathered a child with a woman on his household staff more than a decade ago. The revelation came Tuesday, just a week after Schwarzenegger and Shriver announced they had separated. “I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family,” Schwarzenegger wrote in a statement. “There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry.” Hours later, Shriver also released a statement: “This is a painful and heartbreaking time. As a mother, my concern is for the children. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment.” Two of their four children posted on Twitter, expressing their love for their family. “Some days you feel like s---, some days you want to quit and just be normal for a bit,” tweeted 17-year-old Patrick Schwarzenegger, quoting the band Fort Minor’s heartbreak song “Where’d You Go.” Adding his own words, he said, “Yet I love my family till death do us apart.” His 21-year-old sister, Katherine Schwarzenegger, followed later in the day. “This is definitely not easy but I appreciate your love and support as i begin to heal and move forward in life,” she said. “I will always love my family!” Schwarzenegger and Shriver jointly announced May 9 that they were splitting up after 25 years of marriage. She moved out of the family’s Brentwood mansion after Schwarzenegger acknowledged the child is his,

Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has acknowledged that he fathered a child more than ten years ago with a member of his household staff.
the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday. For several weeks, she has been seen in public without her wedding ring. Schwarzenegger said the child was born “over a decade ago” — before he began his seven-year stint as governor. The Times did not publish the former staffer’s name or that of her child but said she worked for the family for 20 years and retired in January. Schwarzenegger issued his statement to the Times late Monday, after the newspaper interviewed the former staffer. The Times reported that she originally said another man — her husband at the time — was the child’s father. When the newspaper informed her of the governor’s statement, she declined to comment further. Schwarzenegger later released his statement to the Associated Press and other news organizations. What’s most stunning about the revelation is how long he managed to keep his family — and the public — in the dark, prominent Los Angeles divorce attorney Steve Mindel said, adding that Schwarzenegger may have been able to conceal signs, such as child support, because of his wealth. “Clearly, Arnold has done a spectacular job of keeping it secret,” he said. Another prominent attorney, Gloria Allred, said it was likely that whatever settlement Schwarzenegger reached with the woman required that she never discuss the relationship publicly. Schwarzenegger, 63, has been dogged for years by allegations of womanizing. They almost derailed his move to politics in 2003 when he was elected to replace recalled Gov. Gray Davis. Days before the election, the Times reported accusations from numerous women that the handsome, muscular star of the “Terminator” films and seven-time Mr. Olympia had groped them on movie sets. That was hardly his only brush with controversy.

Former Burlingame superintendent dies
By Heather Murtagh

Elizabeth ‘Betty’ Jean Vixie Sweetman
Elizabeth “Betty” Jean Vixie Sweetman, born Nov. 8, 1952, died at the age of 58 on Sunday, May 1, 2011, after a four-year battle with cancer. She is survived by her four children and three siblings, who will cherish her memory forever. She was born in San Francisco and went from one side of the country to the other before returning to the Bay. She graduated from Sonoma High School in 1969 and went on to study at San Francisco State University. Betty was a member of Bethany Presbyterian Church, an incredible organization that helped start the project of turning her house into a brand-new one. She loved her garden day in and day out, full of flowers, trees and vines. Roses and California poppies were her favorites. She relished the sunshine and any beach it touched. She collected giraffes of all kinds, big and small, carved and stuffed and even grown. Betty was a believer in the motto “Don’t Quit,” and always had a good reason to keep going. “She touched the world and made it a better place for all, and has gone to God and his angels.”

Four months after stepping down as the superintendent of Burlingame schools, Dianne Talarico died this week after losing a battle with lung cancer. Talarico joined the district in 2008, replacing outgoing Sonny Da Marto. In January, she submitted a letter of resignation and was granted early retirement due to health reasons through the state. Her immediate resignation allowed Talarico to continue working with the district through an hourly consulting contract. Talarico’s death comes one week after the district named her replacement, Maggie MacIsaac. “Dianne had a gift of compassion and generosity. Even in the middle of her health situation, she reached out to others to console and comfort. Her smile and laughter will be missed,” said CBO Robert Clark. Washington Elementary Principal Julie Eastman noted how children were always central to Talarico’s decisions. She would constantly ask how something would impact the children, Eastman recalled.

“She truly kept the heart of education at the forefront. ... I’m really going to miss her terribly,” said Eastman. Talarico came to Burlingame after a two-year stint as superintendent of the Santa Monica-Malibu School District. Prior to her work in Southern California, she served as superintendent of Canton City Schools in Ohio for five years. She began her career in Ohio as a special education teacher. She spent almost 20 years with the San Francisco Unified School District in a number of roles, served as principal of the American Overseas School in Rome, Italy and also taught child development at San Francisco State University. During her tenure, the district renewed its parcel taxes under a new structure. Burlingame voters approved Measure A, a $76 annual parcel tax for eight years, in 2003. Measure S, a $104 annual parcel tax for six years, went into effect in

2005. Both were set to end in 2011. In 2010, the voters approved Measure B, which combined the measures and extended payments 10 years. The tax generates about $1.4 million for the district annually. In June 2010, the Board of Trustees unanimously voted to purchase the nowvacant Hoover Elementary School at 2220 Summit Drive for $4.85 million. To do so, the board had to rearrange priorities for Measure A, a $48.3 million bond passed in 2007. The purchase was done to add space for the growing enrollment. Information for services is not yet known.

Third Cal Poly San Luis Obispo student reports rape

SAN LUIS OBISPO — A third Cal Poly San Luis Obispo student has been raped while she was intoxicated and unconscious, campus police said. The latest victim said she was assaulted on Sunday in the Poly Canyon Village dormitory, where another woman was raped on May 12.

Suspects have been identified in connection with the two incidents, but no arrests have been made, campus police said. Dormitory residents are allowed to drink in their rooms if they are over 21. Another woman reported that she was raped on May 7 during a party at an offcampus fraternity house. Cal Poly student Joseph Trupiano,

23, turned himself in to San Luis Obispo city police last week and was booked for investigation of sexual assault. He was released on $100,000 bail. The three attacks appear to be unrelated, university Police Chief Bill Watton told the San Luis Obispo County Tribune. He declined to say whether the victims were drugged.

Local brief
Man charged with animal abuse
A Redwood City man accused of slapping and kicking his pit bull Bucket pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of animal abuse Tuesday. On Friday, an officer approached John Abdon Johnson, who turned 57 Tuesday, while patrolling the area. Johnson was said to be hitting the dog on the head and kicking it in the ribs. When approached, Johnson told the officer he could beat the dog if he wanted to, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said. Johnson is said to have been beating the dog because it wouldn’t come to him. Bucket was taken to the Peninsula Humane Society and appears to be fine, said Wagstaffe. On Tuesday, Johnson pleaded not guilty to one count of misdemeanor animal abuse. If found guilty, PHS would keep the dog and at that point assess if there is a possibility of putting it up for adoption, said PHS spokesman Scott Delucchi. A jury trial is set to begin June 13. Johnson remains in custody in lieu of $10,000 bail.

Community youth services program launched
A broad range of nonprofits, government officials, law enforcement agencies and East Palo Alto residents gathered in the Peninsula city Tuesday to launch a “mega-network” program focused on supporting the community’s youth. The Mega-Network Continuum of Care/Youth Empowerment Strategies for Success coordinates a variety of organizations and agencies dedicated to helping the community’s young people from 14 to 24 years old, said Faye McNairKnox, executive director of the neighborhood improvement initiative One East Palo Alto. “As a community, we have lacked the coordination and collaboration among those resources,” McNair-Knox said.

“As a community,we have lacked the coordination and collaboration among those resources....Mega-network Continuum of Care represents a longstanding effort to work collaboratively.”
— Faye McNair-Knox,executive director of the neighborhood improvement initiative One East Palo Alto

“Mega-network Continuum of Care represents a longstanding effort to work collaboratively.” The idea for the network started in reaction to gang violence and crimerelated issues that have plagued East Palo Alto in recent years, McNair-Knox said. It evolved into a push to confront the systemic problems facing the city’s young people and centralize efforts to obtain funding and support from donors Arrested were Nam Nguyen, Danny Nguyen, Bong Nguyen and Donna Quach of Daly City and Brian Wong, Marvin Pham, Tue Phan and Steven Pham of San Francisco. Grow sites were discovered at three homes in Daly City and one in San Francisco, according to the task force. The operation was dubbed “Mighty Mites” after agents found that a significant amount of the marijuana plants and grow rooms were infested with spider mites and their webs, according to the task force. Four of the nine search warrant locations were active indoor marijuana grow sites and the remaining locations

and government agencies. “We started out on a path of crime prevention,” she said. “Our young people have wide-ranging needs. Many are high-risk.” Some of the organizations that will come together in the MCOC include One East Palo Alto, Nuestra Casa, Youth Community Services, the East Palo Alto Police Department, Girls to Women and the Sequoia Union High School District. were the residences of the arrested suspects and/or co-conspirators, according to the task force. The charges range from cultivation and possession of marijuana for sale to criminal conspiracy and a bail of $1 million was set for each of the suspects, according to the task force. The investigation into the drug-trafficking organization is on-going and agents are still actively gathering and analyzing evidence. All of those arrested are in custody pending arraignment today at the San Mateo County Northern Superior Court, according to the task force.

• The San Mateo City Council voted 5-0 Monday night to adopt a resolution approving the site plan, architectural review, parcel map and site development permit for the 2000 S. Delaware St.project. The vote served to approve the project’s planning application and represented the final vote on the project. The project is the site of the former San Mateo Police Department station which will eventually be torn and replaced with 120 housing units, half below market rate.

growth, six guns and more than $47,000 in suspected drug profits, according to the task force. The estimated street value of the marijuana is more than $450,000, according to the task force. The busts, made Monday, were the result of a nine-month undercover investigation by police in San Mateo and San Francisco counties, according to the task force.

Mississippi River reopens

U.S. Rep. Giffords picks wake-up song for shuttle
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — After a poignant wake-up song requested by wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords for her astronaut husband, Endeavour and the two other space shuttles each marked milestones Gabrielle Tuesday for the Giffords retiring fleet. In its first full work day in space for its last flight, Endeavour’s commander Mark Kelly and his crew conducted their final post-launch inspection for damage to the shuttle heat shield — a routine procedure started after the 2003 Columbia disaster. Initial results “looked really good” for NASA’s youngest shuttle, lead flight director Gary Horlacher said Tuesday.

JACKSON, Miss. — The Coast Guard reopened the swollen Mississippi River north of New Orleans on Tuesday, allowing cargo vessels on the nation’s busiest waterway to pass one-by-one in the latest effort to reduce pressure from rising floodwaters. A 15-mile stretch at Natchez, Miss., was closed entirely earlier in the day, blocking vessels heading toward the Gulf of Mexico and others trying to return north after dropping off their freight. Had the channel remained closed, it could’ve brought traffic to a standstill up and down the river, which moves about 500 million tons of cargo each year. That sort of interruption could’ve

cost the U.S. economy hundreds of millions of dollars for every day of idled barges carrying coal, timber, iron, steel and more than half of America’s grain exports. Coast Guard officials said wakes generated by passing barge traffic could increase the strain on levees designed to hold back the river. Authorities were also concerned that barges could not operate safely in the flooded river, which has risen to the level of some docks and submerged others. “We’re closely monitoring traffic along the river and all vessels must stay to the center of the river,” Coast Guard Cmdr. Mark Moland said. It’s not clear how long barges would only be able to move one at a time through the section. The river is expected to stay high in some places for weeks.

College mental health screenings go high-tech
By Martha Irvine

CHICAGO — Look around a waiting room at a university counseling center and you’ll see students wrestling with all sorts of issues: The one who’s failing because of binge drinking. Another who’s struggling with a roommate conflict, or a recent break-up. Yet another who’s stressed out and suicidal. Many centers are more swamped than ever, college therapists say, particularly at this time of year, in the frenzy of final

exams and job searches. Though there’s debate about why there are more students seeking services, there is agreement on this: The increase in demand, those therapists say, has made it even more crucial to zero in on the students who are in the most distress. “We used to worry about there being a stigma about coming in for counseling,” says Ian Birky, director of counseling and psychological services at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. Now, he says, they’re “overwhelmed” with students seeking help.

Senate blocks bill repealing $2 billion in oil tax breaks

Senate looks at ways to help post office
WASHINGTON — It looks like rescuing the financially struggling Postal Service is going to require thinking outside the mailbox. The post office was more than $2 billion in the red for the first three months of this year and is facing an $8 billion loss for the fiscal year, which could force it to default on some payments to federal accounts. Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., said Tuesday he is introducing a bill to restructure postal finances and ease some of the restrictions that limit its flexibility.

WASHINGTON — The Senate blocked a bill Tuesday that would repeal about $2 billion a year in tax breaks for the five biggest oil companies, a Democratic response to $4-a-gallon gasoline that might fare better when Congress and the White House negotiate a deal later this year to increase the government’s ability to borrow. The bill was defeated on a procedural vote. But Democrats hope to

build their case to include the measure in a deficit-reduction package being negotiated by key lawmakers and the Obama administration. Lawmakers from both parties are demanding deficit reduction as part of deal to increase the government’s ability to borrow and avoid an unprecedented default on U.S. Treasury bonds. “This bill says that even the most rich and powerful among us must do their fair share to help us reduce the deficit,” said Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., the bill’s sponsor.

Herniated Disc? Severe Back/Neck Pain? Sciatica?
Spinal Decompression may be your answer to minimizing your chronic pain and restoring better motion and function back to your spine.
At Crossroads Health Center, your Satisfaction is Guaranteed. Let us help you get the quality of life back that you deserve.
y name is Dr. Thomas Ferrigno D.C., owner of Crossroads Health Center in Campbell and San Mateo. I understand what it feels like to live with chronic back pain. Due to several auto accidents and sports injuries, I have personally suffered from multiple disc herniations in both my neck and lower back and understand firsthand the severe pain and disability that comes with these types of injuries to the point where I was forced to sell all 3 of my practices. I did not want to have spinal surgery due to the high risk; instead I wanted a non-surgical non-invasive therapy that would help me manage my condition. That is when I turned to Spinal Decompression, not as a doctor, but as a patient and it completely changed my life. Within a few months my pain went from severe to mild and I was able to return back to my activities of golf, weight lifting and spending quality time with my family. It has been my mission ever since to share this great new technology with as many people as possible. While non-surgical spinal decompression is a rather new treatment, there’s plenty of research to back up its claims. Give us a call and we will send you the studies or visit my website at www.BayAreaBackPain.Com. However it’s the results we see every day in our office that get us so excited about this new non-invasive treatment. Read what a few of our patients are saying. My severe lower back and sciatica pain have been reduced significantly since receiving spinal decompression therapy. I am now able to walk, golf and do things without pain that I haven’t been able to do for years. Thank you, Dr. Ferrigno —C.M. Allard During the 1 1/2 years of having constant daily lower back pain and spasms, I took anti-inflammatory and pain medication, but nothing helped lessen the pain. Physical therapy didn’t help. When an MRI showed that I had two degenerative discs, I went through a series of lumbar epidural injections. The first one helped a tiny bit, but the others didn’t do a thing for my pain. The only thing that made the pain and spasms go away was Spinal Decompression treatments at Crossroads Health Center. Four years later and I am still pain-free! —Lisa K..

Justice Thomas takes aim at court’s critics
By Greg Bluestein

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas opened up to an audience of attorneys in his home state of Georgia on Tuesday, comparing critics of the bench to die-hard sports fans and wondering aloud whether they suffer from a “disease of illiteracy or laziness.” Thomas, who was born in nearby Pin Point, told the Augusta Bar Association that the downward spiral of public discourse from people who are “drunk on their own opinions” must come to an end. “You don’t just keep nagging and nagging and nagging. At some point it’s got to stop. Sometimes, too much is too much,” he said. “I think we are reaching the point

where we are beginning to undermine the integrity of the law we’re going to need.” Thomas has built one of the court’s most conservative records in nearly 20 years on the bench, but he said he’s still maintained close relationships with his colleagues despite fierce disagreements. “This job is a humbling job,” he said. “It’s the end of the food chain. And some people can do it, and some can’t. But what it teaches you is that you don’t have all the answers. The people for whom this is an easy job are those who have never done it.” The critics, he said, often remind him of overly passionate sports fans. “You can’t get a Georgia fan to say something good about Georgia Tech,” he said. “When a Georgia

fan sees them, they see the embodiment of all that is wrong with the world.” Much of the commentary about the court comes from people with clear stakes in the debate, he said. “There are times when the people who talk theoretically about the issues that we decide, you often wonder, ’Have they read the opinions, have they read the cases?’” he said. “I think there’s a disease of illiteracy, or laziness, because just the commentary will tell you they haven’t read it.” Thomas said one of the most important lessons he learned came early on when Justice Lewis Powell, who retired about four years before Thomas was appointed in 1991, told him something he’ll never forget. “When you think you belong here, it’s time for you to leave.”

The Redwood City woman accused of injuring her 5-year-old granddaughter and another motorist while driving under the influence of alcohol three times the legal limit pleaded not guilty on all charges. Alla Hajiyeva, 55, has pleaded not guilty and requested a Alla Hajiyeva speedy trial yesterday, which is scheduled to start July 11, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Hajiyeva faces charges of misdemeanor child endangerment, driving while under the influence, and driving on a suspended driver’s license and the allegations she caused great bodily injury and injured a minor under the age of 14. Belmont police arrested Hajiyeva after responding to reports of an injury crash on El Camino Real and Harbor Boulevard at approximately 4:10 p.m. March 31. She allegedly rear-ended a 2009 BMW sedan with her 2002 Mazda Protege, causing minor injuries to a 60-year-old female driver from Belmont who was stopped at a red light. The woman was transported to a hospital with neck pain. The crash also injured Hajiyeva’s 5-year-old granddaughter who

Former dispatcher gets to two years for child abduction,forgery
The former San Carlos police dispatcher previously convicted of stealing friends’ credit cards was sentenced to two years and eight months in a state prison for faking a judge’s signature on a restraining order to keep her children’s father from contacting them. Carolyn Jean Crowley, 40, pleaded no contest in April to felony child abduction and felony forgery in return for no more than two years and eight months in prison. On Tuesday, Judge Lisa Novak imposed the maximum sentence, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Crowley will receive credit for 477 days already served. She is also contesting the requested restitution. According to prosecutors, Crowley last July forged Judge Beth Freeman’s name on an alleged restraining order against the father of her young twins to keep their Redwood City school from allowing him contact. The alleged fraud was discovered after the man contacted the District

Attorney’s Office which determined the order was fake and contained the forged signature. Freeman was out of state on the date listed on the order. At the time of her arrest, Crowley was on felony probation for a 2008 conviction of burglary and identity theft. Crowley reportedly stayed with several friends after becoming addicted to drugs and, during that time, stole credit cards which she used for 20 unauthorized purchases. She was sentenced to eight months in jail. Crowley will be in state prison until the restitution petition hearing in July.

Psych ward patient pleaded not guilty to felony threats
A patient in the psychiatric ward of San Mateo Medical Center accused of making daily threats on the lives of the staff pleaded not guilty to one charge of felony threats Tuesday. Jason Gerard Uribe, 30, began making threats against staff members, particularly his doctor, April 7, according to the District Attorney’s Office. Uribe pleaded not guilty to the one felony charge Tuesday, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Threats were said to get increasingly angry and Uribe more agitated until police were called and he was arrested. This is a second strike case. Uribe remains in custody in lieu of $250,000 bail.

A budget based in reality
limbing out of a deep fiscal hole is no small task — particularly when the hole was made deeper by past poor decisions. The California budget deficit has diminished in size in the past six months mostly through a series of tough cuts made in March that slashed $7.4 billion to CalWORKS welfare-towork program, services for the developmentally disabled, the state’s health insurance program for the poor and other spending areas. A plan to eliminate the state’s redevelopment agencies to save another $1.7 billion didn’t receive sufficient votes — nor did a proposal to place a measure on the June ballot to extend temporary personal income, sales and vehicle tax cuts to raise $12.5 billion. Still, Gov. Jerry Brown’s revised May budget reveals a small amount of good news — a $2.5 billion bump in revenue with projections that there will be an overall increase of $6.6 billion in tax receipts through July 2012. The cuts combined with the rise in revenue have reduced the projected deficit to $9.6 billion — down from an estimated $26.6 billion when Brown entered office in January. Also Monday, the Assembly passed urgency legislation previously approved by the state Senate that will save the state $300 million a year through revised state worker contracts with six unions. The deal is by no means perfect since it raises salaries but it does require an increase in worker contributions to retirement plans and has stipulations that prevent pension spiking. That deal, and the reductions in state


spending already decided upon, are marked progress from the days in which the state Legislature and governor would come up with dangerous proposals such as borrowing from future lottery proceeds or substituting fees for taxes. It is a sign of maturity and reality that everyone has to take their share of the pain. And there is a fair share of pain, some warranted, some not so much. Brown proposed the elimination of 43 redundant boards and commissions and layoffs of up to 5,500 state workers and previous cuts mean state parks will close and state tuition will rise. Last week, students and teachers protested on the streets and in Sacramento lamenting the possibility of cuts to education. Nearly everyone can agree that cuts to education are just about the last alternative for the common good and that is why they were placed as the incentive for getting a tax extension proposal on the June ballot. That particular timeline has expired and the next available ballot would be in November when the extensions have already expired, giving the proposal less opportunity for passage. Most of those who hit the streets last week would say that passage of those extensions are the best chance to keep teachers in the classroom. However, the taxes were meant to be temporary and, with increased revenue coming in, there will be less taste for them. The timing

is unfortunate. If the increase in taxes had expired next year rather than this year, there may have been no need for extensions as revenue continued to climb. The opposing point of view, however, may be that legislators would not have had the fortitude to cut all they did in March in preparation. Either way, there is much work to be done particularly when it comes to education. The proposal to eliminate school days, for instance, should be off the table for its impact on teachers, students and parents. Brown on Monday added $3 billion more to public schools because of the diminishing budget hole and that should be enough to keep children in the classrooms at least 170 days a year. The May budget revision is usually a starting point for discussions, but the budget has been an ongoing discussion since Brown took office. That’s refreshing. However, there are several things that have become evident over the past few months — there are no sure things, there are no guarantees the governor can get Republican assistance on his plans and there is a chance, albeit a glimmer, that the budget hole will get smaller before it grows again. The enacted cuts, along with revised state worker contracts, will chip away at the deficit and perhaps the cuts to education will be smaller than the worst-case scenario even without the extension of the expiring tax increases. This budget may not be perfect, but at least it is based in reality and with an eye to reform. And that’s progress.

Action needed for Latino’s grade ‘D’of housing health

Letters to the editor
Why Medicare and U.S. are going broke
Editor, I recently had a 15-minute appointment at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. The appointment consisted mostly of conversation (I was a new patient), a quick listen to the heart and an even quicker two pokes at my abdomen (I never removed my clothes), an order for lab work, a shingles inoculation and a pneumococcal inoculation. The bill for that quick, routine visit is as follows: • Previous visit, new, 65 and Over: $461 • Office/outpatient visit: $283 • Pneumonia vaccination: $65 • Administer Pneumonia vaccination: $65 • Zoster vaccination: $243 • Administer Zoster vaccination: $65 These charges did not include the lab. charges, which I believe were about $214 (not sure about that number). So that one routine office visit cost a grand total (+/-) of $1,182, with lab fees, $1,396. This bill begs the following questions: How many times, and in how many ways, can they add to the bill for the same visit? What should an “office visit” include? Just walking through the door? The administration of inoculations by an assistant? A chat with the doctor? Whether I pay it or Medicare pays it, or some charges are written off per their agreement with Medicare, such charges, in my opinion, are outrageous and unconscionable, and a major contributor to the financial mess in this country. And a graphic example of what is wrong with our health care system and the corporations that are profiting from it. What do you think?

‘A higher standard’
Editor, As of August 2005, all states have DUI laws that deem “per se intoxicated” any driver with a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) at or above .08 percent. This means that drivers with a BAC at or above .08 are intoxicated in the eyes of the law, and no additional proof of driving impairment is necessary. So, if Mr. Klein was considered to be driving under the influence at .02, that would be a higher standard, .08 is the law for everyone and he broke it.

ilicon Valley has long been the center of global innovation, developing cutting edge industries unimaginable a generation ago. By embracing progress, we’ve fostered a revolution in the way the world works. Now, Silicon Valley faces another form of change, a demographic shift that will define this region for years to come. Recent census data reflects a nationwide trend: our region’s Latino population is the fastest growing population in Silicon Valley. Today, one in four of us is Latino, and in just 30 years, it is estimated that Latinos will be the region’s largest population group. This growth isn’t fueled primarily by immigration but by a homegrown second generation growing up, learning and working in the valley. However, while Silicon Valley continues to add jobs and population — particularly Latinos — affordable housing development has lagged significantly and will create major quality of life issues for not only our Latino population, but our entire Silicon Valley resident and business community. Unless new and affordable housing is built, the problem will grow worse and jeopardize our economy, labor-force, job-market, environment and long-term prosperity. According to “The Silicon Valley Latino Report Card 2011” released last month by the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley, Latino’s earned a grade “D” for housing well being and potential homeownership. The report card was compiled from existing and original research and graded the state of Latino affairs in five quality of life areas: education, health, financial stability, housing and environmental sustainability. The findings reflect a mix of good news and challenges. But they also provide a road map for long-term solutions that can shape our region for generations to come. Of the first Silicon Valley Latino Report Card were given letter grades A-F. The grades were: • Education: C • Health: B • Financial stability: D • Housing: D • Environmental sustainability: C While there are some ways in which the quality of life has improved for Latinos in Silicon Valley, there remain serious challenges and housing is perhaps the most critical. The Report Card graded the state of Latino affairs in the areas of: 1). homeownership (grade: D); 2). housing affordability (grade: D); 3). housing over-crowding (grade: F); and 4). homelessness (grade: C). The study found that Latino homeownership rates have fallen since the recession and that Latinos are less likely to be homeowners than non-Latinos. Though the rate is also high for nonLatinos, there is a 20 percentage point spread between the two groups. Affordable housing is beyond the reach for the 61 percent of Latinos who spend more than 30 percent of their income on rent or mortgage costs. This group is considered cost-burden and may have difficulty affording basic necessities. As a likely culmination of factors, including higher unemployment, lower family incomes and larger share in income needed for housing, nearly a quarter of Latinos live in overcrowded housing conditions increasing their vulnerability of health problems. Unstable housing and economic conditions can be a slippery slope to homelessness. And while fortunately, the homelessness rate remains low, homeless Latinos are more likely to have children living with them than non-Latino homeless persons. If we don’t start to address the shortage of affordable housing here today, we risk the problem becoming far worse and threatening Silicon Valley’s long-term prosperity. We can’t hide from our future. With the promise of our emerging generation, we need to apply our tradition of innovation to empower this pivotal community and ensure a sustainable future for all of Silicon Valley. Last Thursday at the Bay Area Latino Housing Report hosted by the National Hispanic Organization of Real Estate Associates, more than 100 of our Hispanic leaders, housing officials and business leaders gathered to harness the collective wisdom of our community and to call on the community to take immediate steps to address the lack of affordable housing in the region. Collaboration of business, civic, labor and community leaders is necessary to improve the quality of life for Latinos and our valley. Together we need to: • Collaborate with public and private sector parties to develop or make available more affordable housing options; • Implement sustainable ownership measures, including financial and mortgage education for new homeowners; and • Study other counties and cities who have made successful in-roads to introduce more diverse housing accommodations as a way to balance the housing-to-jobs ratio. Regardless of the grades received in 2011, we know change is possible. To all Latinos and concerned citizens of Silicon Valley, join us in Phase II, Community Engagement, and let your voice be heard. Phase II of the Report Card is dependent on you. We have a choice to join the conversation, obtain a seat at the table and to protect our future generation. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for our Latino community so that our entire community will continue to be strong, lead and continue to prosper. The report card is not a conclusion but rather a beginning from which our community can develop a concrete agenda for the 21st century. We invite you to visit to download the full Silicon Valley Latino Report Card 2011 and join us on this journey to shape our shared future.

note sank to 3.10 percent. When bond prices rise, their yields fall. “There’s a high degree of caution right now,” said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at Harris Private Bank in Chicago. “People are worried about big picture issues that need to be resolved.” The Dow lost 68.79 points, or 0.5 percent, to 12,479.58. The S&P 500 lost 0.49, or less than 0.1 percent, to 1,328.98. The Nasdaq rose 0.90, also less than 0.1 percent, to 2,783.21. Even with a majority of companies reporting stronger earnings, the U.S. stock market has lost some of its momentum in the last few weeks. Concerns are growing that high gas prices will weigh on the economy, pinch consumer spending and cut into corporate profits. Companies reported mixed results Tuesday. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said its income rose 3 percent in the first quarter, but sales at stores open at least a year fell for the eighth quarter in a row. WalMart’s stock fell nearly 1 percent. Sales also slipped in the first quarter at Home Depot Inc., but the retailer’s income jumped 12 percent and beat analysts’ expectations. The stock rose 1.2 percent.

Winn-Dixie Stores Inc.,up 70 cents at $8.04 The grocery chain said its fiscal third-quarter net income rose 12 percent,beating Wall Street expectations.

NEW YORK — A lower earnings forecast by tech giant Hewlett-Packard and concerns about the economy’s strength dragged the Dow Jones industrial average down nearly 70 points Tuesday. Gains in bank and utilities stocks limited the market’s overall losses. Hewlett-Packard Co. fell more than 7 percent. The world’s largest technology company by revenue lowered its earnings outlook for the rest of the year, partly because of weaker sales of personal computers. The company fell to $36.91, near its lowest price over the last 12 months. Concerns about the economy’s strength helped pull down industrial companies like Caterpillar Inc. and Boeing Co. The Federal Reserve said U.S. factories produced fewer goods in April for the first time in 10 months. If the decline continues, it could cut into the earnings of companies that make industrial equipment. The Commerce Department also reported that construction of new homes plunged. The two reports drove traders into the relative safety of U.S. government bonds, pushing yields to their lowest level this year. The yield on the 10-year Treasury

LinkedIn raises IPO ante
HOT IPO: Online professional networking service LinkedIn Corp. raised the price for its upcoming IPO by 30 percent to $42 to $45 per share.The increase reflects the high demand to invest in the first of what’s likely to be several IPOs from Internet companies specializing in bringing together people with common interests. LOFTY APPRAISAL: LinkedIn is expected to debut Thursday with a market value of at least $4 billion. That would be the highest for an U.S.Internet IPO since Google Inc. went public nearly seven years ago. THE CONCEPT: LinkedIn’s website acts as part Rolodex,part hiring center.
By Michael Liedtke

SAN FRANCISCO — Investors are clamoring to connect with the online networking service LinkedIn Corp. in the latest sign of the fervor for Internet companies that specialize in bringing together people with common interests. The demand to buy a piece of LinkedIn is so intense that the 8-year-old company is expected to make its stock market debut Thursday with a value of at least $4 billion. That would make LinkedIn’s initial public offering of stock the biggest by a U.S. Internet company since Google Inc. went public in 2004, according to the research firm Renaissance Capital. The appetite for LinkedIn’s IPO encouraged the company’s bankers to raise the asking price by about 30 per-

cent Tuesday to $42 to $45 per share. It won’t be surprising if the IPO is priced even higher Wednesday evening and then sells for more than that Thursday morning when they are expected to begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “LNKD.” The IPO is expected to raise about $200 million for LinkedIn and produce $125 million to $135 million for existing stockholders, who plan to sell some of their shares. The biggest winner will be LinkedIn’s co-founder and chairman, Reid Hoffman, whose 20 percent stake in the company will be worth more than $800 million. The coming-out party on Wall Street for LinkedIn, which focuses on connecting professionals online, could be the prelude to even more excitement if several popular Internet companies decide to go public during the next year.

Homebuilders missing out on recovery

WASHINGTON — For homebuilders, it hardly feels like an economic recovery. Nearly two years after the recession ended, the pace of construction is inching along at less than half the level considered healthy. Single-family home building, the bulk of the market, has dropped 11 percent in that time. And there’s no sign it will improve soon. Builders are struggling to compete with waves of foreclosures that have

forced down prices for previously occupied homes. The weakness is weighing on the economy. Though new homes represent a small portion of overall sales, they have an outsize impact on the economy. Fewer new homes mean fewer jobs. Skip Howes, a homebuilder in Woodland Park, Colo., has managed to stay in business only after laying off two workers in the past few years. He’s now running a two-man operation in the small town outside of Colorado Springs. The other man is his son. But business isn’t picking up. Before

the housing boom, he built as many as six homes a year. Last year, he built only one. This year, he’s had no home projects. “We’ve been holding on for years,” Howes said. “If I can’t diversify, and if things don’t improve, I might have to lay off my son.” The Commerce Department said Tuesday that new-home construction plummeted last month to a seasonally adjusted rate of 523,000 homes a year. A big drop in volatile apartment-building construction pulled down the monthly figures.

HP cuts outlook on services revamp, slow PC sales

NEW YORK — Hewlett-Packard Co. is bracing for weaker financial results this year as it overhauls its services business to undo what its CEO described as years of neglect under his predecessor. For too long, the business focused on short-term results rather than expand

into high-margin areas, such as helping businesses convert their systems to new technologies, CEO Leo Apotheker said Tuesday. Fixing that will cost the company in the short term, he said. HP cut its fullyear earnings forecast Tuesday. Investors responded by sending its stock down more than 7 percent to a two-year low. Apotheker, who became CEO in November, said HP never followed

through on a strategy it laid out years ago to focus on the high-margin areas. “We are now going to execute the strategy,” Apotheker said. That includes finding an executive vice president of services who will report directly to Apotheker, he said. “We view these changes as logical, mostly proactive and positive for longterm operating profit expansion,” said Jayson Noland, an analyst at Robert W. Baird & Co.

Half Moon Bay’s Julian Garcia was 6-2 with a 1.42 ERA this season as the Cougars posted the lowest team ERA in the PAL this season at 1.64.

For the second time in two years, the Peninsula Athletic League’s Ocean Division qualified two teams for the Central Coast Section — champion Half Moon Bay and runner-up Capuchino. Half Moon Bay (21-6) got the highest seed of the PAL teams that qualified, earning the No. 5 seed in Division III. The Cougars will host No. 12 Monte Vista Christian (1611). Capuchino (15-10-1) was seeded 15th and will travel to No. 2 Carmel (24-3). Both games begin at 4 p.m. today. The Ocean Division rarely qualifies two teams for CCS as it is considered a “C” league — one that houses the least competitive teams. The Ocean Division champion — Half Moon Bay — is an automatic qualifier, while Capuchino slipped in with an at-large berth. And the two teams did it in different ways. Half Moon Bay relied on the PAL’s best pitching staff, numbers-wise, while Capuchino swung its way into the playoffs by having the PAL’s best hitting team. Granted, detractors will say it’s not surprising given the competition level of the Ocean Division, but both Capuchino and Half Moon Bay managers will not apologize for anything. “Everyone has to play the game,” said Cap manager Matt Wilson. “It doesn’t matter who you play. Hopefully we can open eyes up after [today].”

saga Hall of Famer Killebrew,74,dies Posadatip of is just
By Dave Campbell

MINNEAPOLIS — Harmon Killebrew earned every bit of his frightening nickname, hitting tape-measure home runs that awed even his fellow Hall of Famers. Yet there was a softer side to “The Killer,” too. The balding gentleman who enjoyed a milkshake after each game. The fisherman who was afraid of bumping into alligators. The MVP who always had time to help a rookie. Killebrew, the big-swinging slugger for the Minnesota Twins and the face of the franchise for so many years, died Tuesday at age 74 after battling esophageal cancer. “It’s a sad day. We lost an icon. We lost Paul Bunyan,” former Twins star Kent Hrbek said. The team said Killebrew died peacefully at his

home in Scottsdale, Ariz., with his wife, Nita, and their family at his side. He announced his diagnosis just six months ago, and last week Killebrew said he was settling in for the final days of his life with hospice care after doctors deemed the “awful disease” incurable. Harmon At Target Field, the scoreKillebrew board showed a picture of a smiling Killebrew and his retired No. 3 was etched in the dirt behind second base. Plus, there was a more personal tribute — the Twins’ ground crew slowly lifted home plate and put under it a plastic-encased, black-and-white photo of Killebrew. The picture, believed to be from the 1960s,

will stay beneath the plate the rest of the season. It shows, naturally, the compact Killebrew poised to go deep. And boy, could he take a big cut. His 573 home runs still rank 11th on the alltime list. His uppercut swing formed the silhouette that inspired Major League Baseball’s official logo. Along with a statue in his likeness outside Target Field, there’s a giant bronze glove where fans pose for snapshots — the glove is 520 feet from home plate, fittingly the distance of Killebrew’s longest home run. Much farther away, Killebrew was on the minds of current major leaguers. “We were just talking about him this morning,” Atlanta star Chipper Jones said after the Astros-Braves game Tuesday.

orge Posada’s days as a Yankee are numbered. The moment he told his manager he’d rather sit down than hit from the No. 9 hole sealed it. The real shame is that he’s likely just the first in a long line headed out the door in New York. Posada wasn’t in the lineup against Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester on Sunday by design, as opposed to Saturday night, when he simply defaulted. Both he and manager Joe Girardi insisted no bad feelings carried over. “Everything happens for a reason. You learn from it,” said Posada, smiling and laughing as he made his way around the clubhouse. Girardi wasn’t in the mood for flashbacks, either, beyond conceding what he saw less than 24 hours earlier wasn’t the typical Jorge Posada face. “Yeah, he was a little emotional. I was emotional in there because he’s one of my guys.” “I feel for what he’s going through,” Girardi added. When the Red Sox went to their bullpen

Cleveland wins NBA Draft Lottery
By Brian Mahoney

SECAUCUS, N.J. — The Cleveland Cavaliers got a huge jump on their postLeBron James rebuilding process Tuesday night, winning the lottery and the No. 1 selection in next month’s NBA draft. Turning a pick they acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers into the No. 1 selection, the Cavs will pick first for the first time since 2003, when they drafted James out of high school.

He left for Miami last summer and the Cavs tumbled to the second-worst record in the league, but they will have two top-four picks next month as they try to back owner Dan Gilbert’s boast that they would win a title before James. They already had their own pick and acquired another at the trade deadline from the Clippers in the deal for Baron Davis. Gilbert sent his son and “hero”, 14-year-old Nick Gilbert, to the podium and the kid came up with a stunning victory, as the Clippers’ pick, originally No. 8, had only a 2.8 percent chance of landing at the top.

Nick Gilbert was born with Neurofibromatosis (NF), a nerve disorder that causes tumors to grow anywhere in the body at any time. He was wearing black-rimmed glasses and a bow tie and looked serious until he showed a keen sense of humor in a television interview. His father called him his “hero” for the way he has fought the disease. “It’s sort of Nick fashion. He has been doing it his whole life to some degree. I’m proud of him. I proud of the way he carried

Gonzalez rallies Rockies past Giants Homophobia battle joined

Rockies 5, Giants 3

DENVER — Pitching with confidence and command, Jonathan Sanchez was on the brink of another win for the San Francisco Giants. It all slipped away after he fielded a sacrifice bunt and threw wildly to first base. Sanchez’s throwing error opened the door to a four-run eighth inning and the Colorado Rockies surged back into first place in the NL West with a 5-3 win Tuesday over the San Francisco Giants. “He threw quality strikes and that was a big improvement for Johnny,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of Sanchez. “He was locked in, did a great job. He went out there in the eighth and made a couple of mistakes there. Worst case, you’re hoping to get out of there with a tie, but he threw the ball away at first and it ended up killing us.” Through seven innings, it appeared as though the Giants were going to get their sixth win in eight tries against the Rockies and leave town with a 1 1/2-game lead over their rivals.

Jonathan Sanchez

Sanchez (3-3) allowed three hits and didn’t walk a batter over the first seven innings but gave up backto-back singles to Ryan Spilborghs and Chris Iannetta leading off the eighth, then threw away Alfredo Amezaga’s sacrifice bunt, allowing Spilborghs to score from second base and pull

Colorado to 3-2. “It was an easy out at first,” Sanchez said. “I should have made that play. I think that’s why we lost. Amezaga is pretty fast and I just wanted to make sure I got him out, and I threw it away.” Javier Lopez relieved Sanchez and Dexter Fowler greeted him with an RBI double. One out later, Carlos Gonzalez, whose three-run homer off Tim Lincecum propelled Colorado

past the Giants on Monday night, sent a fastball to right field to snap a 3-3 tie and make a winner of reliever Matt Belisle (4-2). “I was trying to go down and in,” Lopez said. “I imagine it wasn’t too well located, right in his swing path or something. Obviously, he’s a good hitter and he hit it into right.” Huston Street pitched the ninth for his 14th save in 15 tries. He gave up a one-out single to Cody Ross but started a game-ending double play on Andres Torres’ screaming comebacker. Bochy said while the Giants played well in taking the early lead, he lamented lost scoring chances, including stranding Sanchez at third after the Giants pitcher led off the seventh with a double. “We’ve got to get some guys clicking here. We need some production throughout the order, doing some little things, to add on,” Bochy said. “We’re a better hitting club than this. It’s frustrating. We can’t live on the edge every game. We’ve got to take a little of the pressure off the pitchers.”

A’s lefty Braden done for season
By Antonio Gonzalez

OAKLAND — Dallas Braden will not pitch again this season. Now the question is whether he’ll be ready by the 2012 opener. The Oakland Athletics lefty who threw a perfect game last May had surgery Tuesday to repair a torn capsule in his pitching shoulder, ending his season after just three starts and making his return murkier than ever. “It’s a tough part of our business,” A’s manager Bob Geren said. “We’ve seen it a lot. It’s unfortunate for him. He’s going to work hard in his rehab and he’s going to do everything he can to get back.

“We’re going to miss him for sure.” Braden is Oakland’s longest-tenured starting pitcher, and his presence around a young rotation has helped them become one of baseball’s best. Fellow lefty Gio Gonzalez, who was Dallas Braden pitching Tuesday night against the Los Angeles Angels, still keeps a poster marking Braden’s perfect game above his locker that Braden signed: “Open your eyes & shut up your mouth & turn that music down.” That encouragement — not to mention the

usual banter — is something the A’s hope Braden can still bring. “I’m sure he’ll be around the locker room still,” Geren said. “He’s not going anywhere. He’ll be around, he’ll be the same guy I’m sure. He encourages his teammates. He’s a good teammate.” There’s no telling exactly how long Braden will be out. The A’s have been vague about his injury, acknowledging for the first time following surgery what most already had suspected: that Braden will miss the rest of the year. Getting ready by opening day might even by a stretch. Braden’s operation was performed in New York by Dr. David Altchek, medical director of the Mets.

SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Giants will follow in the footsteps of President Barack Obama, pop star Janet Jackson and more than 10,000 others who have made videos for an anti-suicide campaign geared toward gay youth, the team said Tuesday. The World Series champions agreed to produce a YouTube spot for the “It Gets Better” campaign at the request of a fan who started an online petition signed by 6,000 people. Seattle writer Dan Savage launched the “It Gets Better” project last year amid several highly publicized suicides by gay teenagers. It provides messages of hope to counter the despair of bullied or rejected teens. Meanwhile, Jarrett Barrios, president of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, said his group is in discussions with Major League Baseball about getting players to participate in an anti-bullying PSA campaign expected to premiere during the back-to-school season. “Sports teams adding their voice to the chorus of fair-minded people in this country who are calling for an end to bullying and violence against gay people are particularly impactful,” Barrios said. “Their audiences are the people, primarily young men, we most need to bring on as supporters of fair treatment of gay people.” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, employees at Apple and the vice president of the European Union all have contributed videos to the “It Gets Better” effort. British rugby star Gareth Thomas also made a video, but the Giants are thought to be the first professional team to participate, said Sean Chapin, the Giants fan who petitioned the team through the online site

Thornton-Kesler fight nearly started West finals

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — San Jose captain Joe Thornton tried to get the Western Conference finals off to a raucous start when he asked gritty Vancouver Canucks forward Ryan Kesler to drop the gloves right off the opening faceoff. “Why not?” Thornton said Tuesday, confirming he made the invitation to Kesler. “Let’s fight. Let’s start the series off with a bang.” It didn’t happen. Instead, the Canucks rallied in the third period for a 3-2 win on Sunday night. Maybe Thornton and the Sharks should be more concerned about how they finish games than how they start them. San Jose is trailing

in a series for the first time this postseason and will have a chance to get even on Wednesday night in Game 2 in Vancouver. The Sharks’ inability to hold onto thirdperiod leads nearly cost them in the second round against Detroit, when the Red Wings erased a 3-0 series deficit to force a Game 7. Even though the Sharks are behind in a series for the first time, they are all too familiar with coughed-up leads. San Jose surrendered third-period advantages in Game 5 and 6 against the Red Wings before holding off Detroit in Game 7. The Sharks were ahead 2-1 going into the third period of Game 1 against Vancouver, but gave up two goals 79 seconds apart and were outshot 13-7 in the final frame. That makes three blown third-period leads

in four games for the Sharks, who were 33-22 during the regular season when leading after 40 minutes. “I certainly don’t feel uncomfortable with a lead,” Sharks top defenseman Dan Boyle said. “That’s where I want to be, and we have to find a way to finish people off, maybe by getting that next goal and building on that onegoal lead.” It’s a lesson the Canucks already learned — the hard way — in these playoffs. Vancouver was 38-0-3 with the lead after two periods during the regular season in which the Canucks had the NHL’s best record and topped the league in several key categories. But after surrendering a 3-0 series lead to nemesis Chicago to start the playoffs, the Canucks gave up a short-handed goal late in

Game 7 before recovering to win in overtime. They continued to sit on leads against Nashville early in the conference semi finals, surviving a 1-0 win in Game 1 before surrendering one with 67 seconds left in Game 2 and losing in overtime. It wasn’t until Game 6, the series’ clincher against the Predators, that the Canucks got back to their regular season habit of trying to build on, rather than protect, late leads. “I hope we’ve learned from our mistakes and mishaps, and we have to continue to have that killer instinct,” Canucks forward Mason Raymond said. “We were good all year but regular season is regular season, playoffs are another level. We talked about having more of a killer instinct when we do get the lead, not sitting back so much.”

Henderson wins stage, takes lead at Tour of California

MODESTO — Greg Henderson of New Zealand powered to a surprising stage win and took the overall race lead at the Tour of California from British teammate Ben Swift in the wind-filled and crash-marred third stage Tuesday. Henderson (Team Sky), usually in the main lead-out rider for Swift, bolted to the front with about 500 yards left and took the 121.9mile Auburn to Modesto road race in 5 hours, 14 minutes and 29 seconds. Henderson began the stage in 11th place, trailing Swift, the Stage 1 winner, by 10 seconds. He gained 10 seconds of bonus time for the stage and took the lead based on tiebreak-

er criteria. Swift is second, with Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Cannondale) of Slovakia, third overall, trailing by 4 seconds. “We came to the Tour of California with a super strong team, unfortunately Michael Rogers (last year’s winner) is sick, so we had to change things up a bit,” said Henderson, a former Tour of Spain stage winner who earlier this season won a Paris-Nice stage. “We have two great sprinters with me and Ben Swift, so it’s either me leading him out or him leading me out.” Juan Jose Haedo (Saxo-Bank) of Argentina was second in the stage, with reigning world titlist Thor Hushovd (Garmin-Cervelo) of Norway third, both in the same time. Veteran Tour de France rider Jens Voigt

(Leopard-Trek) of Germany, Jesus Del Nero Montes (NetApp), American Will Dugan (Team Type 1) and Andreas Schillinger (NetApp) of Germany all suffered minor injuries in several crashes in the final few miles. Andreas Schillinger (NetApp) of Germany crashed earlier in the stage and also suffered minor injuries. All five crash victims finished the stage and are expected to continue racing. Seven riders escaped from the main field just after the start and built about an eightminute lead. With the main group unmotivated and strong headwinds gusting at more than 20 mph, the lead riders rode for several hours at an average speed of less than 20 mph. The

winning time was about 45 minutes slower than expected. But just like in the opening stage, the lead group’s margin was steadily absorbed, setting up the race’s second straight sprint finish. Henderson moved to the front early for a winning finish and thinking he was setting up Swift for his second win. “There was a lot of chaos on the final lap,” Henderson said. “We were all lined up. With 100 meters to go, I thought no one had come around me, so I just kept my head down. I was absolutely spent at the line.” The seven-day race continues Wednesday with an 81.8-mile road race from Livermore to San Jose, the event’s first of two mountaintop finishes.

“These [new] bats are keeping balls in the park,” Terrazsas said. “What we did more was, we concentrated more on defense and teaching the kids how to [play small ball on offense] more.” Three-year varsity player Julian Garcia was the Cougars’ workhorse on the mound. The senior led Half Moon Bay with a 7-2 record as a starter, throwing seven complete games in the process. He also added a save as he posted a 1.42 ERA and held batters to less than a .200 batting average. Another senior, David Moody, was just as effective. Moody went 6-0 and had an ERA slightly higher than Garcia’s at 1.47. been less than stellar. The Capuchino statistician did not enter errors on the website, but with four games remaining in the regular season, Wilson told a reporter he estimated his team had committed upwards of 64 errors through the first 21 games of the season — an average of just over three errors a game. Instead of getting mad and pulling his hair out, Wilson was forced to accept it. “One thing is, we are an extremely young team,” Wilson said, adding he starts three sophomores on the infield and, because varsity played with just 12 players, he brought up five more sophomores from the frosh-soph level for CCS. “The errors are going to come, especially with this team. They’re playing with each other for the first time and varsity baseball is much faster (than frosh-soph).” To the Mustangs’ credit, they have not allowed their fielding miscues to linger at the plate. “I tell my guys, you’re only as good as your next play,” Wilson said. “Sometimes that next play is on offense. “They’ve really responded. This team has so much character.” Despite having a slew of sophomores on the team, the offense is led by senior Jon Wild and junior Tim Gretter, who has been a force at the plate as well as on the mound. Gretter is batting 14 at the bottom of the standings made the trip to NBA Entertainment studios in northern New Jersey for what Commissioner David Stern called the league’s “annual rite of renewal.” But the lottery again failed to help the team that needed it most. Not since 2004, when the Orlando Magic picked Dwight Howard, has the team with the worst record picked first in the draft. The Wolves went from second to fourth last year, but this drop could be more costly — though probably not as much as the only other time they had the best chance to win. A twospot dive in 1992 cost them a shot at Shaquille chain and hook it to the boat, and I’d wade and pull the boat. That was part of being a rookie.” Whether as an 18-year-old with the Washington Senators in 1954 or playing for Kansas City in his final season in 1975, Killebrew carried himself the same unassuming way. “He never walked around with his nose in the air. Never, ever. He used to go out after every game and get a milkshake. A super guy,” said former Royals second baseman Frank White, a youngster who played with Killebrew

a team-leading .489 and has driven in a teamhigh 31 runs. Wild is batting .309 at the top of the Mustangs’ lineup. One player to watch for is sophomore Eddie Cecci who, in his first varsity season, finished the regular-season with a .408 average.

Continued from page 11
Said Half Moon Bay manager Steve Terrazsas: “Certainly there were some down teams (in the Ocean), but there were also some good teams.” Besides, the Cougars went 3-1 against Bay Division squads this season, proving they are worth praise.

Common ground
While Half Moon Bay and Capuchino have used different approaches to reach the postseason, they do have one thing in common — the ability to steal bases successfully. Mustang base runners were only caught stealing twice this season as they finished with 81 steals. Half Moon Bay was nearly as successful, swiping 89 bags in 97 attempts. For Half Moon Bay’s Terrazsas, the steal is again an integral part of the game now that the bats have been deadened. Small ball is again in style. The ability to get runners on base and move them into scoring position — and then driving them home — is at a premium again. “There weren’t a lot of 10-9 games (this season),” Terrazsas said. “We try to bunt guys over, steal a lot of bases. We’re not blessed with a lot of speed, so we have to get good leads, good reads (on the opposing pitcher). We’ve been pretty successful getting guys into scoring position.” O’Neal and they instead settled for Christian Laettner at No. 3. Then again, maybe the Cavs needed the help more. James’ departure from his home state turned a 60-win power into the worst team in the Eastern Conference. Dan Gilbert was defiant when James left, but it was obvious all season his team needed plenty more firepower to live up to his tough talk. “We’ll be right back there and be competitive and build this franchise going forward,” Dan Gilbert said. Toronto and Washington dropped to Nos. 5 and 6 and Sacramento, represented by Mayor Kevin Johnson, fell to No. 7. that final year. Hrbek’s suburban home was mere blocks from old Metropolitan Stadium, a future Twins first baseman who became Minnesota’s next true home-run hitter after being inspired by all those trips to the left-field bleachers to watch No. 3 bat fourth and aim for the fence, and beyond. “You didn’t ever leave the ballpark if the Twins had the chance to tie the ballgame or win the ballgame and Harmon was making it to the plate,” Hrbek said.

Pitching leads the way for Cougars
But factor in a pitching staff with a 1.64 team ERA who held opposing hitters to a batting average of just over .200 and you have even more evidence that the Cougars belong. “I knew we had good senior pitching. I had a pretty good idea pitching would be a strength,” Terrazsas said. “We expected to contend for the Ocean title and knew we would only go as far as our pitching would take us.” Just like the old saying in football that defense wins championships, pitching and defense wins titles in baseball. Just ask the San Francisco Giants. With the new deadened bats implemented in the high school game this year, Terrazsas knew there would be an emphasis on pitching and defense.

Mustangs outslug the competition
While Half Moon Bay was limiting teams to an average of less than two runs per game, Capuchino essentially outhit the competition. The Mustangs had the highest team batting average in the entire PAL, hitting at a .344 clip, with an onbase-plus-slugging percentage of .926 as they scored a league-high 208 runs. “They’re just so relentless with hitting,” Wilson said of his team. “They’re an aggressive team. We swing the bat. They’re not scared to swing it.” The Mustangs have had to be aggressive at the plate almost by default as their defense has 14 and dropping for the eighth time. They had a 25 percent chance of winning after finishing with a league-worst 17-65 record. Instead the luck went to the Cavs, who are used to playing deep in the playoffs and hope they won’t have to worry about this trip again. Besides Nick Gilbert, the Cavs also brought along current Cleveland Browns Josh Cribbs and Joe Haden, dressed in the Cavs’ wine and gold jerseys, and former Browns star Bernie Kosar for good luck. They will likely decide between point guard Kyrie Irving of Duke or Arizona forward Derrick Williams as the top pick. With the NBA down to its final four teams, “He was as intimidating as hell,” Hinske added. But he wasn’t always the tough guy. Philadelphia Phillies manager Charlie Manuel became friends with Killebrew and Bob Allison during his first spring training with the Twins and often fished together in a Florida lake. “There were some alligators in there, otters and things like that in there that would bump up against your leg,” Manuel said. “They would get scared. So I would take the fish

himself and I am very excited for the fans of Cleveland, Ohio who have been through a very, very rough year,” Dan Gilbert said. “They deserve it more than anybody and they have some good hope now.” Minnesota will select second and Utah turned New Jersey’s pick from the Deron Williams trade into the No. 3 selection. The Timberwolves continued their unbelievable lottery losing streak, falling to 0 for

Continued from page 11
“He looked like one of those big strong, country horses. You don’t see guys like that anymore. He was a guy who really overpowered the baseball,” he said. Nearby, teammate Eric Hinske nodded his head.

Heat try to shrug off loss,tie Bulls in Game 2
By Andrew Seligman

DEERFIELD, Ill. — There wasn’t much else LeBron James could do other than shrug it all off and vow to perform better in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals. Game 1 certainly didn’t go well for the Miami. With James and Dwyane Wade struggling, and the Heat getting beaten badly on the boards, Chris Bosh’s 30 points weren’t enough to bail out the Heat in the opener. The top-seeded Chicago Bulls won 103-82, and now have a chance to grab a commanding lead when the series resumes Wednesday night at the United Center. “We’ve been able to bounce back this year no matter if it’s been the regular season or the postseason,” James said. “Learn from mistakes in the previous game and then move on. We’ve done that. We’re looking forward to the challenge, we’re excited about tomorrow’s opportu-

nity to be here and try to steal homecourt.” If they don’t get more from James and Wade, the Heat won’t get that chance and a 2-0 deficit more daunting then it sounds. The Bulls never lost more than two in a row on their LeBron James way to a league-leading 62 wins and their first conference finals appearance since the second championship three-peat 13 years ago. They swept three close games from the Heat during the regular season and are off to a good start in this series. James and Wade came in on a surge, only to have the plug pulled against one of the league’s stingiest defenses. Coming off back-to-back games with 35 and 33 points against Boston in the semifinals, James scored just 15 in the opener while hitting 5 of 15 shots. He couldn’t shake Luol Deng or

active big men like Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah helping out. Wade didn’t have much luck, either, after averaging 30.2 points against the Celtics. He finished with 18 points — six in the second half — and the Bulls broke it open down the stretch on their way to a lopsided victory. “I think we’ve got to play better,” said Deng, who scored 21 points. “I really do. We played really well. If you look at the final score, we won by a lot, but it really wasn’t that kind of game. It really wasn’t. It was tied at the half. They had the lead at some point in the third quarter. So there’s a lot of things we’ve got to get better at.” He saw too many fastbreaks in the early going, some sloppy ball handling. League MVP Derrick Rose committed three of his four turnovers in the opening minutes but had none in the second half, and in many ways, it was a textbook performance by a team that held opponents to a league-low 43-percent shooting. Sure, Miami hit just over 47 percent of its

shots, but other than Bosh (12 of 18), no one else really stepped up and Miami often looked out of sync. There was too much isolation, not enough ball movement, patience. Then again, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau pointed out Miami’s ball movement often comes out of isolation. “Miami’s been a good ball-movement team all year,” he said. “They have players that when the ball comes back to them, they can go oneon-one. That’s what makes them so dangerous and tough to guard. Sometimes, your best ball movement comes off isolation because you have to commit two defenders to the player, and once the ball moves, now you’re getting wide open shots or easier shots.” James said: “You got be patient. It’s harder to attack on the front side of their defense because they load on the strong side. You’ve got to be able to get the ball from one side to another and then attack their defense. They got a lot of length and athleticism.” And they don’t allow many second chances.

turns out to be. Either way, Posada will be gone soon enough. And whenever that turns out to be, the sitdown will seem like little more than a hiccup in a career packed with championship moments. One bout of selfishness might not change the way New Yorkers view him jumping into a teammate’s arms at the start of all those celebrations. But the resentment could grow once those same fans begin totaling up the real costs of what the Yankees spent to keep most of the faces in those photos together. If you put an ear to the ground outside the billion-dollar palace the franchise opened across the street from the original just two years ago, you can almost hear the foundation creaking under all those dollars. Derek Jeter, who turns 37 next month, isn’t quite hitting his weight and his deal has two years to run. Alex Rodriguez, 35, is hovering around .250 and he’s owed around $24 million a year until he’s 42. Throw in ace CC Sabathia, 30, who’s due $23 million a year through 2015, and you can see how nostalgia gets expensive in a hurry. “It’s sad, because you’d always like those things to last forever,” former manager Joe Torre said earlier this week. “They were part of something very unique.” They were also part of an era when we were lulled into thinking that the best players in every game could blow past their expiration dates like they were stamped in invisible ink. For decades, players simply got older, not better, when they skidded into their mid30s and beyond. The easy explanations were better diets and conditioning regimens. Then came revelations of performanceenhancing drugs, and we learned so many weren’t beating Father Time so much as cheating him. There’s no reason to impugn the reputations of any of those names above, save ARod, who admitted what he called a flirtation with PEDs a few years ago. Likewise, we

can laud baseball’s efforts to keep PEDs out of the game while remaining suspicious that some players and some drugs are still beating the system. What seems undeniable is that the combination of factors allowed guys like Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens to own the game at an age when it should have owned them. Those in the Yankees’ front office were far from the only people suffering buyer’s remorse, of course. Lots of other great athletes, from Michael Jordan to Brett Favre to Lance Armstrong, tried comebacks to cash in on the trend and they all ended badly. Yet it’s often the greatest athletes who are the last to understand that. “It’s not the first time that someone has come out of the lineup,” Jeter said about Posada, a good friend. “If you need a day, you need a day. ... If I thought he did something wrong, I’d be the first to tell him.” But who’s going to tell everyone else?

Continued from page 11
late Sunday night, Posada came off the bench. He entered as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning, triggering a boisterous standing ovation, but couldn’t prevent the Yankees from losing their season-high fifth straight. “He’s a hometown hero. He’s still part of the team. He’s still good in my books,” said Kevin Dee, a fan from Manhattan who was in the crowd of 46,945. The funny thing is that Posada, for all the fuss he kicked up, could turn out to be the least of the Yankees’ headaches. He’s 39, making $13.1 million and can’t hit a lick against lefties. But he’s also in the final year of a four-year deal. So if you still believe the Yankees are rich enough to keep burying the occasional mistake, maybe that’s all this


Despite Nehro’s absence, the race is expected to attract the maximum 14 horses — only the third time since 1991 that 14 horses have run in the Preakness. Animal Kingdom trainer Graham Motion will enter Wednesday’s draw with more concern about his horse’s post position than the credentials of the other entrants. After starting from the No. 16 post at Churchill Downs, Animal Kingdom rallied to beat Nehro by 2 3/4 lengths. Motion wants no part of the Preakness rail. “I’d rather not be stuck on the inside, very much like the Derby,” Motion said. “It’s 14 horses instead of 20, but it’s still a large field so he’s going to have to navigate traffic. He’s not looking obviously (to be) on the pace. I’d much rather be on the middle to outside.” No matter where Animal Kingdom begins, he won’t have to worry about Nehro at the finish. “It was a hard decision for Mr. Zayat to make,” Bradley Weisbord, racing and finance manager for owner Zayat Stables LLC, said in Louisville, Ky. “Four races in eight weeks seemed like a lot to ask. For any top race horse, that’s a lot of running in this day and age.” Before competing in the Derby, Nehro was second in the Louisiana Derby on March 26 and second in the Arkansas Derby on April 16. Weisbord expects Nehro to continue to train at Churchill Downs before moving to Belmont in the next couple weeks. Weisbord said the long-term goal for the son of Mineshaft with be North America’s richest race, the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic on Nov. 5, contested at the same distance and on the same track as the Kentucky Derby. With Nehro out, Isn’t He Perfect moves into position to join the starting field. Isn’t He Perfect has amassed more than $90,000 in earnings but hasn’t finished in the money in three stakes races this year. It will be the first Triple Crown race for trainer Doodnauth Shivmangal, who is from Guyana

Absence of Derby runner-up won’t hurt Preakness
By David Ginsburg

BALTIMORE — There will be no rematch between Animal Kingdom and Nehro at the Preakness. Nehro, who finished second in the Kentucky Derby behind Animal Kingdom, will skip Saturday’s second leg of the Triple Crown and be pointed toward next month’s Belmont. Nehro’s owner, Ahmed Zayat, said Tuesday the decision was based on the horse’s hectic spring schedule. Although Nehro emerged well from the Derby, the Preakness would have been his fourth race in the past two months.

and based in New York. Shivmangal wasn’t assured a spot until Nehro dropped out. “I’m more than happy to be in the race,” Shivmangal said. “I can’t tell you how good it felt.” Saratoga Red, trained by D. Wayne Lukas, needs another horse to drop out to make the Preakness field. If that doesn’t happen, Saratoga Red probably will run in Saturday’s undercard. The stakes barn at Pimlico was virtually empty Tuesday. Seven horses are expected to arrive Wednesday, but it remains likely that Animal Kingdom will be shipped Saturday morning from the Fair Hill Training Center in Elkton.

Aggressive Cremation Group:

Seniors Targeted - Beware
By Paul Larson
MILLBRAE – They are at it again! Recently I was made aware of a new cluster of mass mailings being sent to Seniors by a group calling themselves “Smart Cremation” (similar to the mailings sent earlier this year by the “Trident Society”). Several Seniors have come to me asking who is “Smart Cremation”, where did they come from and my opinion on their legitimacy. When ever I hear about mailings from “quickie” cremation outfits that target Seniors I am always suspicious about their intensions. It is a fact that various unscrupulous entities target Seniors because they are thought of as “Easy Prey”. I did some investigating and found out the following: According to the website “Ripoff Report” the group calling themselves “Smart Cremation” is run by “Jerry Norman” who was allegedly fired as CEO of the Neptune Society. “Smart Cremation” is linked to “Accucare” and “Gateway Crematory” who are all one in the same. “Smart Cremation” and the other above names exist under the umbrella of “Northstar Memorial Group” in Houston, Texas. There is apparently some concern on how “Smart Cremation” collects and holds money from the Seniors they are targeting. Yes, I know…there are a lot of names & details to sink in…but there’s more… Using visual tricks “Smart Cremation” has been printing materials which are specific to certain targeted Seniors such as using flower envelopes mailed to women and U.S. flag envelopes mailed to Veterans, etc., all meant to be subliminally enticing. Also, “Smart Cremation” advertizes themselves as being “green” and “earth friendly” when in reality the process they use to cremate is no different than any other crematory in the United States. It is well documented that toxic greenhouse gases are emitted into the atmosphere during the cremation process. An example of a true green option would be a natural type burial certified by the “Green Burial Council”. There are too many particulars about “Smart Cremation” to list here, but on the internet you can read the entire report for yourself along with comments on legal troubles from concerned consumers at: I have to emphasize that if you are looking into cremation or funeral matters please please do your homework and call your local Funeral Home, compare their services and ask questions. Go to a Funeral Director who is well known in the community. Please don’t become a “target” and allow these out of state mailings to lure you in with misleading messages. They will send sales people to your home who will then be hard to get rid of without your signature on a contract. To conclude, here are all my best wishes to you, your family and loved ones. If you ever wish to discuss cremation, funeral matters or want to make preplanning arrangements please feel free to call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650) 588-5116 and we will be happy to guide you in a fair and helpful manner.

Outside the box rice pilaf McDonald’s midlife crisis
more. This simple and speedy recipe for cranberry almond rice pilaf can be on the table in about 25 minutes, only about 10 minutes of which you’ll need to actually do anything. The flavor is so much better than packaged pilafs, and the recipe is totally versatile. Don’t like almonds? Use chopped cashews or pistachios. Dried currants, cherries, golden raisins or sliced dried apricots can sub in for the cranberries. And while we keep the seasonings simple with just a bit of cinnamon, cumin and black pepper, feel free to take this in any direction you like (curry powder wouldn’t be a bad way to go). To make a meal of this, serve it topped with grilled herbed chicken breasts. Also consider doubling the recipe to allow for leftovers. Then drizzle the chilled leftover pilaf with a bit of vinaigrette, toss with arugula and sliced cherry tomatoes, and call it a salad.

Don’t like almonds? Use chopped cashews or pistachios. Dried currants, cherries, golden raisins or sliced dried apricots can sub in for the cranberries.
2 3/4 cups chicken broth 1/3 cup dried cranberries 3 tablespoons butter 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin Ground black pepper 1 medium yellow onion, diced 1/3 cup sliced almonds 1/2 cup grated carrots Salt, to taste 2 scallions, finely chopped In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine the rice, orzo and broth. Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat to simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Once the rice has cooked, quickly stir in the cranberries, then cover and set aside for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. While the rice and cranberries sit off the heat, prepare the rest of the pilaf. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the cinnamon, cumin and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, then cook for 30 seconds. Add the onion and saute until it begins to soften, about 4 minutes. Add the almonds and carrots, then cook for another 2 minutes. Add the rice and cranberries to the skillet, toss well. Season with salt and pepper, then mix in the scallions. Serve immediately.

NEW YORK — Ronald McDonald is having a midlife crisis. His floppy shoes, painted-on smile and flaming-red hair may be a harder sell to today’s kids who are trading in their dolls and trucks for manicures and mobile game apps at ever younger ages. He also seems out of step with McDonald’s Corp.’s new efforts to appeal to adults. The 48-year-old spokesclown has fallen flat in new ads this year, according to Ace Metrix, a group that tracks TV advertising. And the government is getting strict on Ronald marketing unhealthy food to children. That McDonald has both marginalized Ronald as more of a mascot than a product pitchman and landed him in the middle of the bigger debate about food makers’ responsibilities in stemming the rise in childhood obesity. McDonald’s says it is proud of the food it offers and that Ronald teaches children to be active. Critics say it’s time to hang up the yellow jumper. A group called Corporate Accountability International plans to ask Ronald to retire at the company’s annual meeting on Thursday. They say Ronald encourages kids to eat junk food, contributing to a rise in childhood obesity and related diseases such as diabetes. The group, which campaigned against the Joe Camel cigarette mascot in the ’90s and complained about Ronald as a role model at McDonald’s annual meeting last year, has stepped up its campaign. The group has taken out full-page ads Wednesday in the Chicago Sun-Times, New York Metro and four other papers to call for his head. The ads, signed by more

The restaurant name was drawn from the “America Eats” writers project of the Works Progress Administration during the 1930s. It’s Andres’ first new restaurant in Washington since opening new concepts in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Another of Andres’ eateries is credited with popularizing Spanish small dishes known as tapas. Recently, Andres won the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Chef award. Minibar, Andres’ exclusive dining spot within Cafi Atlantico, will not change but will close briefly during the creation of the new restaurant, a spokeswoman for ThinkFoodGroup said.

Jose Andres to open D.C.eatery
By Bbrett Zongker

Chef Jose Andres won the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Chef award.

WASHINGTON — Celebrity Chef Jose Andres is creating a new restaurant in Washington, D.C. to accompany a new National Archives exhibit. Andres announced plans Monday for America Eats Tavern, opening July 4 as a temporary restaurant for the summer. He will transform his Cafi Atlantico with a menu showcasing the nation’s food history. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Archives. The pop-up restaurant is part of a partnership with the National Archives exhibit “What’s Cooking, Uncle Sam? The Government’s Effect on the American Diet.” Andres is advising on the exhibit opening June 10. America Eats Tavern will have a casual menu downstairs and a

Panera has long been involved in charitable giving,donating millions of dollars and giving away leftover food to the needy.

Year later, pay what you want Panera a success
By Jim Salter

CLAYTON, Mo. — Rashonda Thornton looked up at the menu on the wall, ordered a Caesar salad and dropped a $10 bill in a box. Pretty generous, considering the meal at Panera Bread Co.’s cafe in the St. Louis suburb of Clayton sells for less than $7. It was a year ago that Panera converted the Clayton restaurant into a nonprofit pay-what-you-want restaurant with the idea of helping to feed the needy and raising money for charitable work. Panera founder and Chairman Ronald Shaich said the cafe, operated through Panera’s charitable foundation, has been a big success, largely because of people like Thornton. “Sometimes you can give more, and sometimes you can give less,” said Thornton, a teacher’s assistant. “Today was one of my ’more’ days.” Panera, based in suburban St. Louis, has long been involved in charitable giving, donating millions of dollars and giving away leftover food to the needy. But Shaich sought more direct involvement. “We were doing this for ourselves to see if we could make a difference with our own hands, not just write a check, but really make a contribution to the community in a real, substantive way,” Shaich told the Associated Press. What developed was the largest example yet of a concept called community kitchens, where businesses operate partly as charities. Panera’s success in Clayton has led it to open two similar cafes — one in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, Mich., and one in Portland, Ore. It plans to add a new one every three months or so. The majority of patrons pay retail value or more. Statistics provided by Panera indicate that roughly 60 percent leave the suggested amount; 20 percent leave more; and 20 percent less. One person paid $500 for a meal, the largest single payment. “From the day it opened, the community has just gotten stronger and stronger in their support of this,” Shaich said. “They got that this was a cafe of shared responsibility.” The Clayton restaurant could pass for any of Panera’s near-

Grill flavor into your salad
By Jim Romanoff

Vintners supplying wine for veterans
By Michelle Locke

YOUNTVILLE — Deb Stallings was more than a little surprised when she found out that budgetary concerns meant that residents of the veterans’ home in the Napa Valley, one of the world’s most renowned wine regions, were being served wine from — gasp! — out of state. And not the good stuff, either. “I’m sure that’s against all the laws of nature,” she said with a laugh. But wine, usually served at the weekly Sunday lunches at the Veterans Home of California, Yountville, is a luxury item, so officials there were limited in what they could provide. And what they could provide wasn’t particularly good. “We thought that not only should we be able to ensure they got a bit of wine each week, it should be good wine and it should be provided by the people who live, work and play in this community,” says Stallings, whose father-in-law is a resident of the home. Calling on fellow members of the Unity League, a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community service organization, Stallings helped put out an appeal to local vintners to donate wine. And they responded. Since February, the volunteer effort known as Vintners for Veterans has made sure local wines made the menu every Sunday. “Those of us in the Napa Valley learned about it said, ‘We can do better than that,”’ said John Shafer, of Shafer Vineyards as he watched his premium merlot being poured for veterans during a recent Sunday lunch at the home. “If they’re going to have a veterans’ home in the Napa Valley, they’re going to have Napa wines.” A number of wineries have already participated, including Shafer, Staglin Family Vineyard — cofounder Garen Staglin is a Vietnam vet — and Opus One. An early ally was Unity League member Chris Edwards, general manager of WTN Services/, who offered the use of warehouse facilities to store and transport donated wine. Unity League volunteers are available to pour the wines, but some wineries are sending their own people in to pour and talk to the veterans, making a welcome change from routine.

If you want to add great flavor to foods without using the usual tricks — fat and salt — just head to the grill. The high and dry heat created by the grill does an excellent job at searing food surfaces and locking in natural flavors, while also adding that unmistakable charred, smoky flavor. And this all comes at no cost in terms of fat and calories. Typically, we think of the grill as the way to cook the main course — the burgers, some chicken, or a steak. But you also can take advantage of this healthy cooking technique to make other parts of the meal, including the sides, breads, even fruits for dessert. This composed salad of steak and spring vegetables uses the grill to cook and flavor the meat, as well as many of the other components of the dish. The natural sweetness of asparagus is enhanced when caramelized over high heat and the woody flavor of the smoke is a perfect match for the slightly grassy taste of the stalks. Similarly, canned artichoke hearts (you can use fresh if you have them) have an earthy, almost nutty flavor that is teased out even more when they are charred. The salad includes cherry tomatoes, which aren’t cooked, but if you like, you also can throw them on the grill until they soften and get a bit wrinkly. We’ve chosen to use sirloin steak, which is not only a budget-conscious option, but also falls in the extra-lean category of beef. But it still has enough fat that it won’t dry out on the grill (as long as you don’t cook it past medium). For all the good flavor the grill brings to these foods, you still want a tasty dressing. Our bright, lemony vinaigrette calls for a little less oil than a traditional recipe, but uses some grated Parmesan cheese to help give it body and keep it emulsified. To round out the meal, brush some slices of crusty whole-grain bread with extra-virgin olive oil and grill until crisp and browned. Before serving, rub each toast with the cut edge of a clove of garlic for an added burst of flavor.

This composed salad of steak and spring vegetables uses the grill to cook and flavor the meat,as well as many of the other components of the dish.
Servings: 5 For the dressing: 5 tablespoons lemon juice 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese 1/4 teaspoon salt Ground black pepper, to taste For the salad: 1 pound sirloin steak, 1- to 1 1/4-inches thick, trimmed of fat 1/2 teaspoon salt Ground black pepper, to taste 1 pound asparagus, bottoms trimmed 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved 4 cups arugula Shaved Parmesan cheese, to garnish (optional) Heat a gas grill to high or light a charcoal fire. To make the dressing, in a blender combine the lemon juice, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Blend until emulsified. Set aside. Season the steak on both sides with the salt and pepper. Grill the steak, about 5 minutes per side for medium rare, 6 minutes per side for medium. Remove and let rest on a cutting board for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, grill the asparagus and artichoke hearts, turning occasionally, until slightly charred and the asparagus spears are tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from the grill and cut the asparagus into 2-inch pieces and the artichoke hearts in half. Place the vegetables in a large bowl with the cherry tomatoes. Thinly slice the steak across the grain and add to the bowl with the asparagus and artichoke hearts. Toss with half of the dressing. In a large salad bowl, toss the arugula with the remaining dressing. To compose the salad, place some of the arugula on each serving plate and arrange the grilled steak and vegetables on top. Garnish with shaved Parmesan cheese, if desired.

officer, who describes Ronald as “a force for good.” Ronald, the world’s most famous clown, had humble beginnings with a paper-cup nose and scraggly blonde wig. First played by Willard Scott in 1963, he dispensed burgers and fries to delighted children and flew around on a magic hamburger. “Goofy and clumsy” is the way McDonald’s describes the early incarnations. A decade later McDonald’s created standards on makeup and mannerisms for Ronald, so the actors who portrayed him could present a united front. Around that time, they also created McDonaldLand, home to Grimace, Mayor McCheese and an array of other characters. (McDonald’s, for the record, views Ronald as a real person. “There’s only one Ronald,” Peleo-Lazar said in response to several questions about how many actors portray the smiling clown.) Around 2004, McDonald’s christened The menu board lists “suggested funding levels,” not prices. Payments go into a donation box, though the cashiers provide change and handle credit card payments. Nicholas James, 34, visiting from California, seemed a bit puzzled as a cashier walked him through the process, before stuffing $15 in the donation box to cover lunch for his friend and himself. The payment was right at the suggested cost. “I think it’s great,” James said. “I would much prefer to give this place my money.” Not everyone is so generous, but that’s OK with Brooke Porter, who manages the restaurant. She knows that times are still hard for many. She has seen families down on their luck come in to celebrate birthdays with a Ronald as a “balanced, active lifestyles ambassador,” and stuck him in commercials where he trained for the Olympics. He got workout clothes. He got a tuxedo. He moved from McDonaldLand into the real world. New commercials show him as an active, athletic clown who plays soccer, shoots hoops and encourages kids to visit McDonald’s website. There’s barely a mention of burgers and fries. While other clowns have faded, Ronald has endured. He’s been immortalized as a Beanie Baby, a bobblehead and a balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade. Even now, Zagat says he’s the most popular fast-food mascot, beating out Jared the Subway Guy. “It would be tough to walk away from him,” said Nigel Hollis, whose company, Millward Brown Optimor, calculates that McDonald’s is the fourth-most valuable brand in the world. “It would be almost as if the Geico gecko disappeared, or the Aflac duck.” But Jack McKee, vice president of sales meal they normally couldn’t afford. A teacher laid off after 25 years stops by on his way to job fairs. He can’t afford to pay much but makes up for it by volunteering at the store. “If a man in a suit and tie leaves a dollar for a $10 meal, that’s fine,” Porter said. “We don’t know his story.” Only a few take advantage of the system — “lunch on Uncle Ron” as Shaich calls it. He still fumes over watching three college kids pay $3 for $40 worth of food. Generally, peer pressure prevents that sort of behavior, he said. “It’s like parking in a handicapped spot,” Shaich said. Overall, the cafe performs at about 80 percent of retail and brings in revenue of about $100,000 a month. That’s enough to generate

and marketing at Ace Metrix, said new Ronald McDonald commercials have failed to entice test audiences. His company surveyed 500 people about each commercial, he said. “It’s really remarkable how often I saw the word ’creepy’” in the survey comments, McKee said. Replies Peleo-Lazar: “For everyone who may feel that way, there are more who feel the opposite.” Through the years, Ronald has also been the face of Ronald McDonald House Charities, which provides free or inexpensive housing for families who must travel to get medical treatment for a child. He still shows up as often as ever at camps for sick children and charity events. Nick Guroff, a spokesman for Corporate Accountability International, said while that’s a worthwhile charity, “to use that as their excuse for marketing junk food to kids is sort of having their burger and eating it too.” $3,000 to $4,000 a month above costs, money being used for a job training program for atrisk youths. “We took some kids that typically wouldn’t be employable, didn’t know how to work in society,” Shaich said. “We gave them a combination of job training and life skills.” The first three graduates of the program are starting jobs at other Panera restaurants. Shaich admitted he didn’t know how the pay-what-you-want experiment would pan out. He said the success should send a message to other businesses to put faith in humanity. “The lesson here is most people are fundamentally good,” Shaich said. “People step up and they do the right thing.”

The smell of coffee fills the air. The differences are subtle. Signs explain the pay-what-you-can concept, encouraging charity. One thing Shaich learned was those signs tend to go unnoticed, so cheery employee Terri Barr greets everyone at the door and spells it out. The biggest difference is at the checkout.

IMF chief under suicide watch at NYC jail
By David B. Caruso

NEW YORK — IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was placed under a suicide watch in jail, while pressure mounted on him to resign Tuesday and the hotel maid who accused him of attempted rape said through her lawyer that she had no idea who he was when she reported him to the police. Law enforcement officials emphasized that Strauss-Kahn had not tried to harm himself but that guards were keeping a close watch on him just in case. Meanwhile, details began to emerge about his accuser, a 32-yearold immigrant from the West African nation of Guinea with a 15-year-old daughter. “There is no way in which there is any aspect of this event which could be construed consensual in any manner. This is nothing other than a phys-


International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn stands before the judge as he appears in Manhattan Criminal Court for his arraignment in New York.
ical, sexual assault by this man on this young woman,” her attorney, Jeffrey Shapiro, told the Associated Press. He added: “She did not know who this man was until a day or two

after this took place.” Strauss-Kahn, the 62-year-old managing director of the International Monetary Fund, was arrested Saturday and is being held without bail at the city’s Rikers Island jail, kept apart from his fellow prisoners in a unit that normally houses inmates with contagious diseases. Police and prosecutors said he ambushed a housekeeper who had come to clean his $3,000-per-night at a New York hotel. Lawyers for the influential banker have challenged that account, saying the evidence doesn’t support accusations of forcible sex. They wouldn’t elaborate, but the assertion gave rise to speculation that they might argue it was consensual sex. At the same time, some of Strauss-Kahn’s supporters in France, where he was considered a possible challenger next year to President Nicolas Sarkozy, have suggested he may be the victim of a setup.

Female employee previously warned others about IMF head
By Raphael G. Satter

LONDON — An employee who had a brief affair with IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn warned the organization about his behavior toward women in a letter sent three years ago. The person who confirmed the existence of the letter is close to the former International Monetary Fund employee, Hungarian-born economist Piroska Nagy. The person declined to be identified, citing the sensitivity of the matter. Nagy, who had worked at the IMF for decades, left the organiza-

tion after the affair with Strauss-Kahn in 2008. An IMF-funded investigation into the affair c l e a r e d Strauss-Kahn Piroska Nagy of wrongdoing but criticized his judgment. The affair back in the news after the 62-year-old Frenchman’s incarceration on sex crimes charges in New York. Nagy now works with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development in London.

Obama:Mideast peace ‘more vital than ever’
By Erica Werner

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama said Tuesday that it’s “more vital than ever” for Israel and the Palestinians to restart peace talks, as he plunged again into Mideast diplomacy with hopes of reaching an elusive accord. Addressing reporters after an Oval Office meeting with Jordan’s King Abdullah II, Obama said the U.S. would continue to push for “an equitable and just solution to a problem that has been nagging the region for many, many years.” The latest White House push comes with Barack Obama Israeli and Palestinian peace talks stalemated and amid upheavals sweeping the Middle East and North Africa. Obama’s special Middle East envoy, former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell, resigned several days ago after a largely fruitless two-year bid for peace. Obama is to deliver a speech on the Middle East and U.S. policy there Thursday, and the next day he’ll welcome Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House. Obama said he discussed the changes roiling the Middle East with Abdullah, whose country has a peace treaty with Israel and is a key U.S. partner in looking for peace. “We both share the view that despite the many changes — or perhaps because of the many changes — that are taking place in the region, it’s more vital than ever that both Israelis and Palestinians find a way to get back to the table and begin negotiating a process whereby they can create two states that are living side by side in peace and security,” Obama said.

Another Gadhafi regime official defects
TRIPOLI, Libya — Another high-ranking Libyan official has defected and fled the country amid a widening NATO campaign of bombings as well as leafletting and other psychological warfare to persuade Moammar Gadhafi’s troops to stop fighting. Shukri Ghanem, the Libyan oil minister and head of the National Oil Co., crossed into neighboring Tunisia by road on Monday, according to a Tunisian security official and Abdel Moneim al-Houni, a former Libyan Arab League representative who was among the first wave of Libyan diplomats to defect. The defections suggest Gadhafi’s political structure is fraying, but it’s unclear whether there is enough internal strife to seriously undermine his ability to fight rebel forces as NATO airstrike pound Libyan military targets. Gadhafi appears to retain the backing of his core of military commanders.

Pakistan protests after clash with NATO helicopter
ISLAMABAD — Pakistan’s military said Tuesday its ground forces exchanged fire with a NATO helicopter in another possible flashpoint with Washington, but also claimed it arrested a senior al-Qaida operative following U.S. demands for “actions, not words” to restore trust. The two reports highlight some of the complexities of trying to rebuild ties after the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden earlier this month. Washington needs Pakistan as a crucial partner against al-Qaida, but Pakistani officials remain deeply angered by the secret operation over their borders in the assault on bin Laden.

his mom by covering some of his own expenses. He beamed with pride describing how, this year, he paid for his own prom. “Once in a rare while, we are fortunate enough to know certain individuals that leave a lasting impression on everyone that crosses their path. I am proud to call such a person my son. I have watched Dave grow from a quiet little boy to a well-rounded young man with a very bright future,” said his mother Dana Floro-Cruz. “Through it all, Dave has remained true to himself, never hesitating to show others kindness and loyalty, even if it meant sometimes choosing a more difficult path. He has the uncanny ability to face whatever comes his way, both good and bad, with the same passion.” Next fall, Cruz will travel across the Bay to attend St. Mary’s College in Moraga on a scholarship to study Japanese. Cruz isn’t sure what he’ll do with such a degree but would be interested in working as an archeologist or in a museum. “I’m excited to see what the world is like. There are so many more places than here. I’m looking forward to that,” he said. Great Grads is in its sixth year profiling one graduating senior from each of our local schools.

blend in and work with one’s surroundings has been a hallmark of Cruz’s high school years. Now as he prepares to graduate, Cruz hopes his ability to adapt will lead him to success at St. Mary’s College in Moraga. Cruz, 17, was born in Manila. At 4, he along with his mom and two siblings moved to Burlingame where his grandmother lived. Cruz doesn’t recall much about the Philippines except his last day. The move was a fresh start for the family, which began living with Cruz’s grandmother. That living arrangement wasn’t smooth for long. Cruz’s immediate family lived in a local hotel for a while. He watched his mom struggle as a single mom trying to provide for her three children. “I respect her for that. She didn’t have to work this hard. She didn’t. But she cared about us,” he said. Cruz attended Roosevelt Elementary School before heading to Burlingame Intermediate School where he enjoyed playing basketball. It was in eighth grade that Cruz was introduced to football. Friends invited him to join a pickup game. Apparently, Cruz had natural skills, which he didn’t recognize. Cruz had never seen, let alone played, football. That introduction shaped his high school experience at Burlingame High. He went out for the football team and made the cut. He played all four years, never the star player, but always working

Age:17 City of Residence: Currently Burlingame Plans After High School: Basically attend college to gain focus and discover what I truly would like to do with the rest of my life Major: History Favorite High School Subject: It’s a tie between AP literature and speech What will I miss most about high school: Probably the people,specifically my close acquaintances who I will never see again What is the biggest lesson I have learned: To always pursue what you want because if you do not then it is already beyond your reach

hard and enjoying the experience. His senior year, the coaches gave Cruz the “most inspirational” award. Cruz used high school as a chance to try new things, like traditional Polynesian dances as part of the on-campus club. Recently, Cruz began working at Preston’s Candy and Ice Cream. The part-time job has allowed Cruz to help at North Star isn’t to accelerate a student into the next grade or math class but to explore the concepts within the curriculum a bit further. Principal Wendy Kelly explained the festival gives students a chance to explore things like heat and confectionery as it relates to chocolate. “There are things out in the world with which they can make connections,” she said noting the topics covered GPS, maps, poker and even chocolate. Bridget Conrad, a parent and one of the event coordinators, explained there are connections to math and science in many things. She, for example, led a class on rhythm and South Indian music with complicated clapping patterns. Or, another course offered is on origami — a principle which has helped with products like car airbags or getting things into space. Students also had their choice of classes. Eighth graders Garrett M. and Shane S. took their first class, “Making Unbreakable Codes,” together. Using sentences, the boys were challenged to take words and symbols to replace what was originally there then given the tools to break it. In the “Fun with GPS Treasure Hunt” workshop with Christopher Wilson, he

he had fun. Nearby, seventh-grade student Inji B. had more success with a piece of wire she constructed into a cube. “Bubbles” was one of 60 unique 90minute workshops offered over three sessions at North Star Academy’s Festival of Numbers Tuesday. The daylong celebration of numbers was in its first year. Like the school’s annual festival of words, workshops are used to expose students to different disciplines and ideas to explore how science and math is used in their daily lives. “I like how it’s not a regular class. It’s more hands-on,” said Inji B., who admitted creating the cube bubble took a bit of thinking. North Star, which serves students from third to eighth grade in Redwood City, is a unique atmosphere. It utilizes compacting curriculum, differentiated instruction and the Joseph Renzulli theory. Developed in 1986 specifically for the education of gifted students, the theory allows teachers to provide programs that are qualitatively different. The point

explained the basic uses of a compass before letting kids try to follow the clues around the school to find the treasure. Groups made circles around the wet blacktop trying to figure out which line to follow, asking questions and clearly being challenged to work as a group. Alternatively, Mike Harris challenged students to think about like if all the technology on which we rely went down. If the GPS failed, what would you do? he asked students. A pause was heard before someone replied, “use a map.” Students looked at paper maps to figure out where they were, how they could get where they’re going and how long it should take. Or, in “Winning at Poker — It’s more probable with probability,” Colin Earl explained how important lingo is to know what’s going on. But the burn card, which one student inquired about, is a creation of the human tendency to cheat. Earl explained the probability of cheating declines by simply getting rid of one card before turning over community cards while playing Texas Hold ‘Em.

in mailings, advertising and phone calls that most city voters oppose the project,” said David Lewis, executive director of Save the Bay. The poll also found that 78 percent of respondents agree the project will create too much traffic and that 64 percent support the restoration of the salt ponds into tidal marsh for fish and wildlife. Since Save the Bay is the source of the poll, however, DMB officials said it is just another “desperate” attempt by the nonprofit group to derail the project. The project still has a couple of years to secure the proper approvals, Smith said, and will be built in phases over the course of 25 to 30 years. “We are open to evolving,” Smith said. “We are not so arrogant to presume

we got everything right.” Cargill owns the saltworks site and first came to the city in 2009 for review of the project after Measure W, placed on the ballot by the groups Save the Bay and Friends of Redwood City, was rejected in 2008.

Measure W would have required twothirds voter approval before any action taken by the City Council to change zoning or general plans for a specific property to move forward. The Cargill project does not fit the city’s general plan, Save the Bay’s Lewis said. The city’s general plan shows future growth to be concentrated downtown, near the Sequoia Caltrain station. Nearly 63 percent of Redwood City voters rejected Measure W in November 2008. “They have been desperate since that measure’s failure to shut down the environmental review process,” DMB’s Smith said. “The story is the balanced future of the site and they don’t want the public to hear that story.”

You’re likely to do far better in joint endeavors than you will when you decide to play a solo role, in coming months. Recognize when it is to your advantage to team up with others and when its best to go it alone.
TaURUs (April 20-May 20) -- Investment proposals

that are presently yielding good results are likely to continue to do so. Though the returns may not be as great as those from riskier ventures, you should stick to the tried and true. GeMInI (May 21-June 20) -- Your ingratiating manner wins you the respect of even those who are hard

to please. Your trick is taking the time to listen to their problems and trying to help them resolve their quandaries. CanCeR (June 21-July 22) -- Avoid wasting your time on insignificant problems or projects. Try to think large, because you’re especially adept at putting together meaningful arrangements. LeO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Although you might be somewhat adept at taking a chance on reasonable ventures, it doesn’t give you license to bet on matters that are nothing but pie-in-the-sky. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Only hard work on your part will put Lady Luck in the mood to help you successfully close out a matter of material significance. If you coast, she’ll let you bail yourself out.

LIBRa (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Don’t abdicate your

position or let the controls slip through your fingers concerning a matter or enterprise you personally direct. Keep a tight rein on the important things. sCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Any financial gains you make will be due only to the hard work you and/or your associates contribute to the effort, and not to Dame Fortune. No more, no less. saGITTaRIUs (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you have to be a dreamer, be one who only uses practical, logical procedures to isolate your objectives.

Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in Probate Code section 9100. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hearing date noticed above. You may examine the file kept by the court.
