Schools prep for layoffs

Initial notices to be sent out March 15 for a number of local districts
By Heather Murtagh

Teachers could soon be getting bad news as school districts start to approve notications that they may be laid off later this year. California requires districts to send out preliminary notices to teachers by March 15, many of

which will go before school boards starting this week. Often the number is rened before nal layoff notices are sent out by May 15. Teachers who are laid off could be asked back over the summer, when the states budget becomes clear. Layoff numbers could be high this year as Gov. Jerry Browns current state budget proposal funds educa-

tion at the same rate if tax measures are passed in November. Without it, districts will face mid-year cuts, which they need to budget for now. On Monday, the Burlingame Elementary School District Board of Trustees will vote to send notications to 14.5 full-time equivalent positions including 7.5 elementary school teachers, 1.5 reading

specialists and 2.5 physical education specialists. New employees as well as positions funded through money the district isnt sure will be there make up the list, explained Superintendent Maggie MacIsaac. MacIsaac added Burlingame is lucky since it has been supported locally through property taxes.

Earlier this month, the San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District Board of Trustees discussed the possibility of notifying 29.35 FTEs, which partially includes: seven administrators, 3.75 elementary reading teachers, three student achievement facilitators, as

GOP hopes California primary will be relevant

Leaders discuss ways to move party forward
By Caitlin Alyce Buckley

By Garance Burke

The Republican Party expected to accomplish several things at this weekends state convention in Burlingame, said Chuck McDougal, chair of the San Mateo County Republican Party. One, its a chance for all of us to get together to compare notes, to see what each of us is doing in each county, to see how we can help each other, to plan a strategy for the state of California and to vote on a platform of what the Republican Party of California stands for, which we then send to the national party and they do their best to incorporate that in the national platform, he said. GOP leaders and supporters at the convention acknowledged the party must devise a strategy to reach young people, women, Asians and Hispanics.

Thought for the Day

I am indeed rich,since my income is superior to my expenses, and my expense is equal to my wishes.
Edward Gibbon,English historian (1737-1794)

This Day in History


The Battle of the Java Sea began during World War II; Imperial Japanese naval forces scored a decisive victory over the Allies.

In 1801, the District of Columbia was placed under the jurisdiction of Congress. In 1911, inventor Charles F. Kettering demonstrated his electric automobile starter in Detroit by starting a Cadillacs motor with just the press of a switch, instead of hand-cranking. In 1912, author Lawrence Durrell, author of The Alexandria Quartet, was born in India. In 1922, the Supreme Court, in Leser v. Garnett, unanimously upheld the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which guaranteed the right of women to vote. In 1933, Germanys parliament building, the Reichstag, was gutted by fire. Chancellor Adolf Hitler, blaming the Communists, used the re as justication for suspending civil liberties. In 1939, the Supreme Court, in National Labor Relations Board v. Fansteel Metallurgical Corp., outlawed sit-down strikes. In 1951, the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution, limiting a president to two terms of ofce, was ratied. In 1960, the U.S. Olympic hockey team defeated the Soviets, 32, at the Winter Games in Squaw Valley (The U.S. team went on to win the gold medal.) In 1973, members of the American Indian Movement occupied the hamlet of Wounded Knee in South Dakota, the site of the 1890 massacre of Sioux men, women and children. (The occupation lasted until May.) In 1979, Jane M. Byrne confounded Chicagos Democratic political machine as she upset Mayor Michael A. Bilandic to win their partys mayoral primary. (Byrne went on to win the election.) In 1982, Wayne Williams was found guilty of murdering two of the 28 young blacks whose bodies were found in the Atlanta area over a 22-month period.

Womans wheelchair, walker stolen while she waited for a ride to the doctor
A thief snatched a South San Francisco womans wheelchair last week while she waited for a ride to a doctors appointment, according to police. The 65-year-old woman was inside her home on the 100 block of Gardiner Avenue around 10:15 a.m. on Wednesday when the theft occurred, police said. She was waiting for a Redi-Wheels van to pick her up for a doctors appointment, so her caregiver set the wheelchair and a walker outside on the sidewalk. When the caregiver stepped back inside for a moment, a man allegedly grabbed the wheelchair and walker and placed them in the back of an unmarked white bobtail truck with a roll-up door. The caregiver tried to stop the man, who was described only as a Latino male in his 30s with a slender build, but he drove away. The suspect was last seen driving on Chapman Avenue toward Airport Boulevard.

No one was hurt and the thieves got away but left most of their booty in the back seat of the damaged Audi. The courier service SEUR said the stolen goods were things of special value worth no more than euro50,000 ($67,000), although Spanish newspapers said the amount was much higher. El Mundo said the loot included diamonds and Rolex watches.

I gured Id just go lose $100 real quick, he said. I was overwhelmed and in shock. Its something you always want to happen, but when it does happen you dont believe it. Degenhardt, who will receive about $100,000 a year over 20 years, said he plans to rst help his pregnant sister and his mother catch up on bills. He decided to buy some clothes after the jackpot - at a thrift store, where he buys all of his clothes. He said he wont part with his car that has rolled up some 250,000 miles, either.

They asked me if I was sure I wanted to go through with it because its kind of painful, but whats a little pain if it will save someones life? Degenhardt said. I look at this jackpot as kind of good karma for that.

Russ Hanley Longtime San Bruno educator

A vehicle that was supposed to be returned in December was declared stolen on Airport Boulevard in South San Francisco before 11:59 a.m. Monday, Feb. 13.

fter people began to settle on the Peninsula and communities began to form, one of the most important things that concerned the new population was getting their kids an education. Many of the immigrants had come from countries where education was only for the well-to-do. The average family did not have the same chance for education. Communities initially developed by the logging industry of Woodside/Redwood City slowly spread up and down the Peninsula. A huge county school district was formed and children were expected to go to school in addition to helping their parents on the family farm. Soon, the large school district became too bulky and impersonal for local groups, and smaller districts were formed. The San Bruno Park School District was carved out of a larger district, and a school was constructed on El Camino Real (at the present Toyota car lot). Teachers were needed, but only single women were hired. Women who became teachers were expected to uphold high morals, not be conspicuous and not get married. Any scandal or controversy created by the teachers resulted in

immediate dismissal. These high expectations were matched with an equally low pay. Because of this, many teachers had to live with members of the community because they could not afford room and board. In the mid-1920s, Miss Alice Degnan applied and got a job teaching at Edgemont Grammar School. She commuted from San Francisco for three years before she married and began raising a family. In 1931, a son was born. Charles Russell Hanley, called Russ, grew up in San Francisco and attended St. Ignatius High School beginning in 1949. After graduation, he joined up and spent four years in the U.S. Navy. Seeking higher education, Russ left the Navy and enrolled at San Francisco State College where he received his bachelors and masters of arts. In 1958, he met and married Angela Marie from Nevada. Their rst daughter, Susan, was born in 1959. She was followed by another daughter, Diane, in 1960.

Disgruntled ex-employee arrested after standoff

By Scott Morris

A terminated employee of a South San Francisco business and a group of three possible accomplices were arrested Saturday on suspicion of violently confronting his former employer, police said. The confrontation began at 12:36 p.m. at the suspects former workplace in the 400 block of North Canal Street, police said. The red employee arrived with a group to confront the manager of the business, but a group of employees attempted to intervene and protect the manager. A ght broke out between the suspects and the employees, and one of the suspects red several shots from a handgun, police said. No one was hit by gunre. Another suspect hit one of the employees with a baseball bat, and that employee suffered minor injuries. The suspects ed in two vehicles before police arrived. The red employee was identied by police

as Carlos Velasquez, 22, of South San Francisco, and police located his car near his house in the 800 block of Second Lane. The North-Central San Mateo County SWAT Team and South San Francisco hostage negotiators surrounded the house and Velasquez surrendered after several hours. Another suspect was identied as Rodrigo Aguayo, 23, of South San Francisco. Police found Aguayo returning home in the other vehicle seen leaving the incident.

Teachers need training to spot molesters

Former Stangelinis Deli vacant for months

Neighbors near the old Stangelinis Italian Deli & Hilltop Market in San Mateo are being asked to chime in on what should replace the old grocery store near the border with Burlingame that has stood vacant for months now. In fact, the building was empty for so long that the property on North San Mateo Drive is now zoned for multi-family residences since it has been vacant for more than six months. The developer is now seeking a zoning code amendment, since the building is now considered non-conforming, to reestablish a grocery store use on the site. Portfolio Development Partners, the developer, has no solid plans for the site yet and

LOS ANGELES Many school teachers across the nation are trained to pick up on clues of child abuse and neglect, but most are not trained to spot the signs of classroom pedophiles, leaving a gray area that could help teacher molesters operate undetected on campuses. Experts say better training of school teachers and administrators in red-ag behavior could aid in catching molesters, pointing to the case of a former Los Angeles third-grade teacher who is charged with feeding some two dozen students semen-laced cookies, and blindfolding and gagging them over a ve-year period. There are clear and consistent patterns of behavior. If you know what they are, they jump right out at you, said Diane Cranley, founder of Talk About Abuse to Liberate Kids based in Laguna Niguel, Calif. But theres no awareness. Only a fraction of the nations 3 million educators are involved in any sexual misconduct

with children. Although no national statistics are kept, a 2007 Associated Press investigation found 2,500 cases nationwide over ve years where educators were punished for sexual abuse. But that number is believed to be only a sliver of all sexual misconduct incidents. Most abuse never gets reported because children are threatened not to tell, or are too ashamed. Moreover, many reported cases get dismissed because the child is not believed or the allegations cant be proven Since last months arrest of former Los Angeles teacher Mark Berndt at Miramonte Elementary School, six other cases involving improper sexual relations between students and teachers or school employees have cropped up just in the Los Angeles Unied School District, the nations second largest school system. Police and school ofcials attribute the rise to increased awareness resulting from that cases notoriety. Theyve received a ood of reports of possible sexual abuse since Berndts arrest.

The initial plan is to restore the property as a grocery store but housing is also a possibility for the site, said Josh Amoroso with PDP. The purpose of the meeting is to see what the neighbors want, Amoroso said. City staff will also attend the neighborhood meeting to answer any questions the public may have. Issues raised at the meeting will be forwarded to the San Mateo Planning Commission for consideration at a future study session. The meeting is 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 29, the King Center, room B, 725 Monte Diablo Ave., San Mateo.

Collision between motorcycle, car causes major injuries
A head-on collision involving a motorcycle and a car stopped traffic for nearly an hour on state Highway 84 in unincorporated San Mateo County west of Portola Valley Sunday afternoon. The crash occurred shortly before 1:30 p.m. when a 20-yearold Stockton man riding a motorcycle west on Highway 84 lost control west of state Highway 35 while trying to negotiate a left curve in the road, according to the California Highway Patrol. The motorcycle crossed over into oncoming traffic, and collided head-on with an eastbound 2007 Lexus driven by a 67-yearold Menlo Park man, CHP officials said. The motorcyclist suffered severe but non-life threatening injuries. The collision closed Highway 84 in both directions for 40 minutes, and one-way traffic control remained in effect until both lanes reopened at 2:57 p.m.


Hells Angels member arrested in shooting

Local briefs
Deputies investigating fire caused by Molotov cocktail
The remnants of a Molotov cocktail were discovered on the scene of a fire in the Eichler Highlands neighborhood of unincorporated San Mateo County Friday, sheriffs officials said. Deputies were called to the scene after county firefighters responded to a trash fire near Allegheny Way and Lexington Avenue at 5:56 p.m. and discovered that a Molotov cocktail had been used. Deputies discovered glass from a bottle, a piece of cloth and burnt residue on the road. The San Mateo County Sheriffs Office bomb squad was called to the scene to investigate. No injuries or damage was reported as a result of the fire. Anyone with information about the incident has been asked to call the San Mateo County Sheriffs Office at (650) 599-1536.

SAN FRANCISCO Police have arrested a Hells Angel gang member several months after he was suspected of fatally shooting a fellow member at a funeral for the regional leader of the motorcycle gang. Steve Ruiz surrendered Saturday evening after San Jose police surrounded his motel in Fremont, police Sgt. Jason Dwyer said Sunday. Ruiz, 38, had been the subject of a widespread manhunt since Steve Tausan was shot and killed during memorial services for Jeffrey Jethro Pettigrew on Oct. 15. Police believe that Ruiz shot Tausan

when a ght broke out at the San Jose funeral, which was monitored by police. Dwyer would not say what led ofcers to the Days Inn motel in Fremont or if any weapons were recovered, but added that Ruiz was considered armed and dangerous. A front desk clerk at the motel, Rey Bayangos, said Ruiz had checked in just two hours before police arrived. They used the phone at the front desk, called and asked him to surrender peacefully, and he did surrender, Bayangos said. It happened all of a sudden. Tausan, 52, was one of 4,000 people attending services for Pettigrew, the president of the Hells Angels San Jose chapter.

Burglaries prompt warning to lock homes when away

The San Carlos Patrol Bureau is asking residents to be alert after two daytime burglaries occurred last week involving residences where no one was home. The bureau, which is part of the San Mateo County Sheriffs Office, said that the suspects have entered homes through rear sliding glass doors that were either left unlocked or were pried open by burglars using a screwdriver. Police are asking residents, when stepping out, to lock all doors and windows both at home and for parked vehicles. Anyone who observes suspicious persons or vehicles is asked to contact 911.

Santorum says Romney State officials scramble to isnt conservative enough save doomed state parks
By Charles Babington

By Tracie Cone and Jason Dearen


MARQUETTE, Mich. The question of whether Mitt Romney is conservative enough to deserve the Republican presidential nomination regained center stage in the GOP contest Sunday, with Rick Santorum saying the former Massachusetts governor fails the test. Santorum urged Michigan voters to turn the race on its ear by rejecting Romney in Tuesdays primary in his native state, in which Romney is spending heavily to avoid an upset. Santorum said Romneys record is virtually identical to President Barack Obamas on some key issues, especially mandated health coverage, making him a weak potential nominee. Why would we give away the most salient issue in this election? an impassioned Santorum asked more than 100 people in a remote, snow-covered region of Michigans Upper Peninsula. Santorum, a former senator from Pennsylvania, said he is the true conservative on scal and social issues.


Rick Santorum waves before the start of the Republican presidential candidates debate in Mesa,Ariz.
Romney rejected the claims. The biggest misconception would be that Im a guy that comes from Massachusetts and therefore I cant be conservative, Romney told Fox News Sunday. In his one term as Massachusetts governor, he said, he balanced budgets, reduced taxes, enforced immigration laws, stood up for traditional marriage and was a pro-life governor. Im a solid conservative, Romney said. The exchanges highlighted the choice facing Republican voters in Arizona and Michigan on Tuesday, and another 10 states a week after that.

Romneys organizational strength helps in Michigan

By Kathy Barks Hoffman

MUSKEGON, Mich. The standing-room-only crowd crammed into a Holiday Inn conference room in this industrial city roared with approval as Rick Santorum served up applause lines on why Michigan Republicans should choose him, not native-son Mitt Romney, as the GOP presidential nominee. Santorums message, heavy on religious values

and contempt for bailouts, was perfect for an audience in this stronghold of social conservatism and tea party sentiment. B u t S a n t o r u m s Mitt Romney campaign couldnt fully capitalize on the moment, revealing a short-

coming that Romney hopes will help him win Tuesdays primary despite the surging enthusiasm and favorable poll numbers for his chief opponent. Santorums campaign organization is so sparse in Michigan that no one was available to collect the names and email addresses of the people streaming out of the hall after the speech, a practice thats a staple of political organizing and get-outthe-vote efforts.

SAN FRANCISCO Lucy DMot was feeling patriotic last July 4 when she read with dismay about a cost-saving plan to shutter 70 California state parks. The news propelled her on a mission: focus attention on the doomed parks by visiting them all and blogging about their unique features before the gates shut for good. From brick Gold-Rush era store fronts near Shasta in the north to Joshua-tree-dotted moonscapes in the south, she has logged nearly 5,000 miles so far in a gold 1996 Toyota Corolla that already had 355,000 of them. On Tuesday DMot visited her 45th park, the Petaluma Adobe State Historic Park, with her foster dog Roxy in tow. Fourth graders, dressed in period garb, were preparing for an overnight trip cooking over a campre, making candles and weaving baskets. How did I not know all of this was here before? she said. But a lot of people dont. The 70 parks on DMots list were chosen by ofcials for a lack of use coupled with the cost of keeping them open. Yet, even the most remote parks have a regular state presence that keeps them clean and prevents blight, and now the California Department of Parks and Recreation is scrambling before the July closure deadline to enable nonprots, private business and park lovers to band together and keep parks from falling into disrepair. Deals are already in place to keep 9 open, and 23 are in negotiation. But many more parks are in need

of saviors. This week Ruth Coleman, parks department director, travelled the state, looking for groups to help keep parks open or watch them so they do not fall victim to vandalism or become illegal campgrounds or trash heaps. I dont want the public to think that these closed parks wont have damage. If they are not willing to pay the tax dollars to pay for them to stay open, then the parks are going to suffer damage, Coleman said. This is why we are working so hard to nd partners. We need to have people using these parks the parks need eyes and ears on them to keep them from becoming blighted. Californias 279 state parks are open to everyone, and were set aside to help preserve the best of the Golden State: breathtaking beaches, hardy hikes and relics of history. Shuttering them by July is projected to save the state $11 million this year and another $22 million next. That amount of savings does not add up to DMot, who learned in her travels that $22 million alone was spent seven years ago to renovate the Leland Stanford Mansion in Sacramento one of the parks now on the closure list. DMot did not have the cash to bail the state out, but had her worn Toyota, a blog and a camera. I didnt have a few dollars for the parks, but I love to travel and take photos, said DMot, a part-time data entry clerk. When times get tough, you dont have to leave California to have a great time. So far a diverse collection of groups have come forward to help keep parks open: the National Parks Service, unnamed donors, nonprofits and county and city governments who already operate local parks.

Clinton appeals for all Syrians to abandon Assad
RABAT, Morocco Syrians in the military and business who still s u p p o r t President Bashar Assad should turn against him, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday.

If you refuse, however, to prop up the regime or take part in attacks on your fellow citizens, your countrymen and women will hail you as heroes, Clinton said at a news conference in Morocco as she conveyed a message to those holdouts backers of the embattled leader.

Army IDs remains of last missing soldier in Iraq

WASHINGTON The U.S military says it has identified the remains of the last American service member unaccounted for in Iraq. Staff Sgt. Ahmed Kousay al-Taie was an Army interpreter who was born in Iraq and lived in Ann Arbor, Mich. He was kidnapped at gunpoint in October 2006 when he sneaked off base on a motorcycle to visit his Iraqi wife in central Baghdad. The Army issued a statement Sunday saying that the militarys mortuary in Dover, Del., had positively identied a set of remains as belonging to al-Taie.

KABUL, Afghanistan Demonstrators hurled grenades at a U.S. base in northern Afghanistan, and a gun battle left two Afghans dead and seven NATO troops injured Sunday in the escalating crisis over the burning of Muslim holy books at an American aireld. More than 30 people have been killed, including four U.S. troops, in six days of unrest. Still, the top U.S. diplomat in Afghanistan said the violence would not change Washingtons course . Tensions are running very high here, and I think we need to let things calm down, return to a more normal atmosphere, and then get on with business, Ambassador Ryan Crocker told CNNs State of the Union. This is not the time to decide that were done here, he said. We have got to redouble our efforts. Weve got to create a situation in which al-Qaida is not coming back. The attack on the base came a day after two U.S. military advisers a lieutenant colonel and a major were found dead after being shot in the head in their ofce at the Interior Ministry in the heart of the capital. The building is one of the citys most heavily guarded buildings, and the slayings raised doubts about safety as coalition troops continue their withdrawal. The incident prompted NATO, Britain and France to recall hundreds of international advisers from all Afghan ministries in the capital.

The advisers are key to helping improve governance and preparing the countrys security forces to take on more responsibility. A manhunt was under way for the main suspect in the shooting an Afghan man who worked as a driver for an ofce on the same oor as the advisers who were killed, Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi said. He did not provide further details about the suspect or his possible motive. The Taliban claimed that the shooter was one of their sympathizers and that an accomplice had helped him get into the compound to kill the Americans in retaliation for the Quran burnings. Afghanistans defense and interior ministers were to visit Washington this week, but they called off the trip to consult with other Afghan ofcials and religious leaders on how to stop the violence, Pentagon press secretary George Little said. The Afghan ofcials had planned to meet with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey. The protesters in Kunduz province in the north threw hand grenades to express their anger at the way some Qurans and other Islamic texts were disposed of in a burn pit last week at Bagram Air Field, north of Kabul. President Barack Obama and other U.S. ofcials have apologized for the burnings, which they said were a mistake. But their apologies have not quelled the anger of Afghans, who say the incident illustrates foreigners disrespect for their culture and religion.

U.S. says its steadfast in rebuilding Afghanistan

By Anne Flaherty

WASHINGTON The top U.S. diplomat in Kabul and a campaign adviser to President Barack Obama said Sunday the U.S. isnt rethinking its commitment to Afghanistan after violent protests left more than two dozen people dead, including two Americans shot inside a government ministry. U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker and Robert Gibbs, Obamas former press secretary, said they believe Afghan President Hamid

Karzais fragile government could collapse and the Taliban would regain power if the U.S. were to walk away. This is not the time to decide that were done here, said Crocker. We have got to redouble our efforts. Weve got to create a situation in which al-Qaida is not coming back. Added Gibbs, What the presidents trying to do now is get us to a point where we can hand off the security of Afghanistan to the Afghans and that we can bring our troops home.

Bill to oversee groomers worthy of the doghouse

The Sacramento Bee

egulation is clearly benecial and even essential for some occupations. Physicians, nurses, dentists, accountants and attorneys, for example, should be strictly regulated and licensed. But there are other occupations for which the benet of regulation is dubious, at best. Interior designers, massage therapists and barbers are just some of numerous occupations the state of California regulates at high costs but with questionable public benet. If a few aggrieved pet owners have their way and more rational decision makers dont intervene, pet groomers may be added to that list. At the behest of a dog owner whose pet was injured by a groomer, Sen. Juan Vargas has introduced Lucys Law. Senate Bill 969 would make California the rst and only state in the nation to require vocational licenses for pet groomers. Lucy is a mixed terrier whose nipples were shaved off by a groomer. For dog owners especially, its a heart-wrenching story, but it hardly justies an

Other voices
expensive, new, heavy- handed, statecontrolled regulatory scheme. Our state can make a difference, Vargas argues, by professionalizing the pet grooming industry to ensure that groomers are properly trained and pets protected from harm. Consumers beware. When an occupation becomes a profession licensed by the state, invariably the cost for the service rises. Vargas bill would require pet groomers to be licensed and regulated by the Veterinary Medical Board. To bathe a dog or clip his shaggy coat, every licensee would have to attend a licensed pet grooming school, pass a test, pay a fee and maintain insurance. They would be required to keep a record for every pet they serviced for two years, the name of the pet, the name and address of the owner and the pets veterinarian, any special needs the pet may have or allergies and a list of all chemicals used on the pet. The requirements go on and on, adding to

the costs that will be passed on to consumers. While some consumers will testify in the Legislature on behalf of this kind of regulation, the interests usually backing such bills are industry members themselves. Established workers seek professional status so they can increase their charges and make it harder for new practitioners, in this case, pet groomers, to enter the eld and compete. To protect consumers and their pets, there is a more cost-effective alternative. Let the marketplace take care of bad pet groomers. Groomers depend on repeat business. If the groomer regularly injures peoples pets, customers dont return and the groomer goes out of business. Its as simple as that. The heavy hand of the state is unnecessary. Various groups are pushing a proposed initiative to convert the Legislature to a part-time body. Its an unwise idea, but when lawmakers push measures like this one, they leave voters wondering: Do these people have too much time on their hands?

Just take an aspirin

ust take an aspirin and youll feel better in the morning. Not for a cold or the u but for birth control. That comment, the way women didnt get pregnant in my day was to put an aspirin between their legs will probably go down in political lore together with Wheres the beef? or You are no Jack Kennedy, etc. Few will remember who said it Foster Friess, a major funder to Rick Santorums super PAC but the phrase will live on. In the days before the pill, an unmarried woman had to be careful. The choices were abstinence, a shotgun wedding, an abortion or the shame of having a child out of wedlock. Or if your family was rich enough, you had another way out: like Sally (not her real name), a high school classmate. We thought she was just gaining weight. So it was a shock when Sally left in the middle of senior year. Sallys boyfriend was the hero of our football team, a big man on campus, but not an appropriate son-in-law, thought the family. Sallys dad was a prominent doctor. Later on we learned that Sally had delivered twins in another state and put them up for adoption. She eventually nished high school, graduated from college and married a doctor. I guess life turned out OK for her. I dont know about the twins. *** When the president rst announced the initial ruling that all employers, except religious institutions, were to offer a health care package to women that included free contraceptive care, I thought he made a terrible political mistake. So did his top male Catholic advisors but not Obamas women Catholic advisors. Is this a male versus female issue? Who bears the brunt of an unwanted pregnancy, a man or woman? In the movie, A Place in the Sun, based on Dreisers American Tragedy everyone suffers a pregnant Shelly Winters gets dumped in the lake but Montgomery Clift loses Elizabeth Taylor. Catholic bishops denounced the initial ruling and the compromise. The nuns running Catholic charities and hospitals endorsed it. The compromise health insurance plans at Catholic charities and hospitals will not include contraceptives but employees can still get coverage if they want, for free, from their insurance companies. This is a complex subject to deal with in sound bites so prepare to be confused. The right will focus on freedom of religion, federal mandates and a dismantling of the Constitution. In the hands of Larry McCarthy, creator of the Willie Horton ad, now media guru for Mitt Romney, and described as the Attack Dog in a recent New Yorker article, who knows how the issue will saturate super PAC ads. The left will focus on the right to contraceptives, a very popular issue among women of child-bearing age of all religions. In fact, polls show that 98 percent of American women including Catholics use (or have used) birth control pills and other contraceptive devices. For the poor, who frequently rely on Catholic charities for their outstanding social services, free birth control pills are important. Paying for them can reach more than $600 a year. *** Some say the right to lifers believe life starts at conception. That cant be true. But you have to care as much about supporting a child outside the womb as you do when its inside if you are truly pro-life. So it seems contradictory when many of these folks want to drastically cut education and social programs for kids. *** This is a dangerous political issue for both sides. Social issues are bad for Mitt Romney and may even entrap Rick Santorum. Catholics are divided on the issue. If the Republicans go too far, they will alienate many American women. And even with the compromise, Obama has opened Pandoras box. *** At a time of economic stress, Irans nuclear threat; chaos on the streets of Athens, Syria and Egypt; troubles in Iraq and Afghanistan; bankrupt state and local governments, why are we even talking about this? Twenty-six states have long been operating under compromise rules. But the conversation continues because its good politics for some and bad politics for others. Maybe the pill has destroyed the myth that only married women have babies. Maybe the pill has allowed women the same sexual freedom as men. Maybe thats progress, maybe its not. In any event theres no going back to aspirin.

Letters to the editor

Perspective on overpopulation
Editor, This letter was prompted by the War on womens rights letter from a frequent letter writer and published in the Feb. 21 edition of the Daily Journal. The authors major justication for his beliefs is that there are too many people on this earth which he calls already overpopulated. It has been a long, well-known fact that Earths population of about seven billion could live in Texas, a state with an area of 268,820 square miles. Each family of four could have a single family house on a 50 feet by 100 feet lot do the math if you dont believe it. Just for slack, maybe a few families would live in condos. But now, the whole world doesnt seem so overpopulated, does it? For the people who dont agree with this frequent letter writers political views and nd the idea of abortion disgustingly immoral, he thinks that they need to be made to provide abortion services to others free of charge. This letter writers parents didnt practice what he now preaches. I will say for those who have had to go overseas to adopt because there are not enough children, had miscarriages, stillborns, lost children or even gave of themselves to raise a child as his parents did: Do you think he can ever understand how other people might feel about this issue?

Sexism alive and well in politics

Editor, Seeing Mark Church step into the county clerk seat held by his father and Kevin Mullin appearing to step into the Assembly seat held by his father, it seems very acceptable for a son to be a chip off the old block. However, daughters do not get the same entree. Take Kimiko Burton, daughter of former state Senate leader John Burton. When she ran unsuccessfully for San Francisco public defender, her credentials as an experienced criminal justice attorney were an aside to being John Burtons daughter. The same happened to Gina Papan who ran unsuccessfully for the Assembly seat held by her father. Despite substantial credentials at the state and local level, they were mentioned as an aside, if at all. Her lineage however was never omitted by the media and often the only reference made of her. Angela Alioto was also unsuccessful in her bid to follow in her fathers footsteps as mayor of San Francisco. The constant mention of a female candidates father, before or without her credentials, implies either directly or indirectly that she is an unqualied Daddys girl. There should be no doubt that sexism is alive and well in politics and it is often perpetuated by the media.

Robert Parkhurst Redwood City

California highway decoration

Editor, Having recently enjoyed a driving trip to Southern California (San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles County, Orange County, etc.), I was struck by the beautiful interstate and California freeway walls with sculptured images, plus the well maintained freeway roadsides which are litter free, and the interchanges with park-like green settings, fully sprinklered and actively watered. There must be no water shortage south of Paso Robles. Then I return home to San Mateo County, and notice the drab concrete block freeway sound walls and litter covered roadsides. Some of our entries to San Mateo and other Peninsula cities look like garbage dumps by comparison to those in the southland. Does Caltrans really love those in the southland more than they love us here in the Bay Area?

Financial milestone?
Dow 13,000 is a big number, but its just a number
By Christina Rexrode and Daniel Wagner

Wall Street
13,000 last week. Technically and fundamentally, not so much. Its the same mind game when people turn 40. Theyre only a day older, but it feels more signicant. Retailers understand this trick, too. Thats why they slap $99 on a price tag instead of $100. That one dollar feels like a lot. For the Dow, whether its 12,999 or 13,000 is just arithmetic, says Mark Lehmann, president of JMP Securities in San Francisco. Keep in mind also that the market is a fickle barometer. Some institutional investors, such as hedge funds or privateequity rms whose employees follow the market for a living, will consider the 13,000 mark a signal to get out, not in. And 13,000 may not last. The re-sale discounts for stocks appear to have come and gone. The companies that make up the Dow are trading at about 13.9 times their past years earnings per share, a popular measure of how expensive stocks are. Just last month, that gure was 13.2. At the Dows low during the Great Recession, it was 8.2. So the Dow is approaching the average of about 16 over the past two decades, according to Birinyi Associates, a stock market research rm. And though this sounds obvious, it can be hard to remember in the headline rush of 13,000: You want to buy stocks when prices are low. The stock market is perhaps the only place where shoppers rush in when prices go up. Human beings are pattern-seeking animals, said Brian Gendreau, market strategist at Cetera Financial Group. We nd patterns even when there are none. The Dow has climbed back slowly since its 2009 low of 6,547.05, and its other milestones have also generated a frenzy of attention. But as motivations for investment, their record has been mixed:

Big, round numbers are hard to ignore. Thats why we pay attention when the odometer clicks over to 100,000 miles, and why the world threw a party at the dawn of 2000 instead of the technical start of the millennium in 2001. Its no different on Wall Street. When the Dow Jones industrial average briey crossed 13,000 last week, a milestone it hadnt reached since before the nancial crisis, people took notice. Some observers said it was a sign of a stronger U.S. economy. Casual investors wondered whether it was time to get back into stocks after eeing to bonds or just stufng their money under the mattress in the terrifying economic meltdown. But a word of caution: 13,000 is just a number. It gives politicians something to talk about. It gives regular people something to measure against. It can stir up excitement, but it doesnt change the elements of the economy, like the number of people out of work or the number of empty houses. The Dow also isnt the best measure of the stock market. It follows 30 companies important ones, household names, but only 30. And its weighted so just a handful of the most expensive stocks carry the most weight. If Apple, whose stock has skyrocketed this year from $405 to $522, had been added to the Dow on Jan. 1, it would already be above 14,000, according to estimates last week from ConvergEx Execution Solutions. And the Dow is certainly not the best measure of the economy. It can rise even when jobs are falling or the economy is shrinking. Psychologically it matters, says Dan McMahon, director of equity trading at Raymond James, who was underwhelmed by the Dows short foray above

On Oct. 14, 2009, about 10 years after the rst time the Dow hit 10,000, the average hit the mark again. Traders passed around baseball caps labeled Dow 10,000 2.0 on the oor of the New York Stock Exchange. Mutual funds didnt think the milestone was a good time to invest: They pulled $216 million out of U.S. stocks that day, according to TrimTabs Investment Research. A week later, the Dow was down about a half-percent. Three weeks after that, though, it was up 2.7 percent from its Oct. 14 close. On April 12, 2010, the Dow crossed 11,000. This time, the Dow climbed in the following week, up 0.8 percent. Three weeks after that, it was down 2 percent. On Feb. 1, 2011, the Dow crossed 12,000. A week later, it was up 1.6 percent. Three weeks after that, it was virtually at. Experts say investors should keep in mind that the surest way to prot in the stock market is to invest for the long term. Buying for just a week or a month at a time is a risky bet. Beyond talk of milestones, theres also the question of whether the Dow is even an accurate measure of the economy. Besides being made up of just 30 companies, its weighted so that the few with the highest stock prices carry the most heft. So a small percentage change in the stock of IBM, which is trading around $198, sways the index much more than a large change in the stock of Bank of America, which is trading around $8. Last year, the Dow rose 5.5 percent. But strip out IBM and McDonalds, the two stocks with the highest prices last year, and it rose just 1.8 percent, according to calculations by Birinyi. Plenty of analysts say the Standard & Poors 500, given its much broader list of companies, is a better measure of the market. While the Dow would need a 9 percent rally to reach its all-time high of 14,164.53, the S&P 500 is still 15 percent away.

Oil spill trial delayed for settlement talks

By Harry R. Webber

A judge is pushing back the federal trial over the nations worst offshore oil disaster by a week, saying Sunday that BP PLC was making some progress in settlement talks with a committee overseeing scores of lawsuits, according to people close to the case. Two people close to the case told the Associated Press the decision was made Sunday during a conference call between parties in the case and U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the call. They said the judge told those on the call that BP and the Plaintiffs Steering Committee were making some progress in their settlement talks. The

steering committee is overseeing lawsuits led by individuals and businesses in the wake of the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig on April 20, 2010, in the Gulf of Mexico. The blast killed 11 workers, and the resulting oil spill soiled miles of coastline. However, the judge did not mention the status of settlement talks between other parties, nor did he mention any numbers being discussed, according to the people close to the case. The brief order issued by Barbier on Sunday said only that the delay was granted for reasons of judicial efciency and to allow the parties to make further progress in their settlement discussions. Among other things, the trial that is now set to begin March 5 is meant to determine the penalties that need to be paid by BP and other companies involved in the oil

spill. Billions of dollars are at stake. BP PLC conrmed in a news release that the trial had been delayed. It said the oil giant and the Plaintiffs Steering Committee were working to reach an agreement that would fairly compensate people and businesses affected by the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion and resulting spill. Separately, BP has had discussions in recent days with the federal government and cement contractor Halliburton, according to several people close to the case. If no settlement is ultimately reached, Barbier will preside over a three-phase trial that could last the better part of a year. The rst phase is designed to identify the causes of the deadly blowout and to assign percentages of fault to the companies involved in the ill-fated drilling project.

G-20 linking IMF hike to bigger EU firewallfund

By Mark Stevenson

MEXICO CITY The G-20 nations are conditioning additional money for the International Monetary Fund on the European Union first increasing its nancial stabilization funds to ease concerns about the euro zone debt crisis, ofcials said Sunday. Ofcials participating in a meeting of G-20 nations nance ministers and central bank heads said an EU decision to

add to the estimated euro500 billion ($675 million) in rewall funds already committed to the effort would be essential before the rest of world considers contributing to the stabilization measures. There is broad agreement that the IMF cannot substitute for the absence of a stronger European rewall and that the IMF cannot move forward without more clarity on Europes own plans, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said following the close of the meeting, noting the U.S. would not be making any

increased contribution. The weekend talks mainly focused on stability for the euro zone, where debt and economic problems have threatened to destabilize global nancial markets. Though no specic amount in rewall funds was discussed, Geithner said the funds have to be large ... my sense is that they (Europeans) understand that. Other ofcials said the added funds must be enough to calm market concerns and should be available to countries before they fully carry out promised fiscal reforms.

Carlmont pulls out last minute win

Scots now head to Central Coast Section Division I semifinals
By Nathan Mollat

The Monta Vista and Carlmont girls soccer teams proved Saturday the theory that a majority of goals are scored in the rst and last ve minutes of halves. The fourth-seeded Scots took a 1-0 lead with a goal two minutes before halftime, but the Matadors countered with a tally four minutes into the second half. But it was Carlmonts Maritza Gomezs strike in second-half stoppage time that propelled the Scots into the Central Coast Section Division I seminals with a 2-1 victory at Terra Nova. I do swear, theyre trying to age me, said Carlmont coach Tina Doss about her squad. I didnt want to sit through overtime.

The win sends Carlmont (13-3-5 overall) into the seminals for the rst time since 2008, when it lost to Los Gatos in penalty kicks. The Scots will get a chance to avenge that loss. Theyll face top-seeded Los Gatos (17-1-2) at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at Del Mar High. The Wildcats shutout No. 9 Menlo-Atherton 3-0 Saturday. The strength of the Scots all season has been its defense, and for only a brief moment Saturday, Carlmonts back line was nearly impenetrable. The offense? Well, thats been a work in progress. I have a team of defenders, Doss said. Were teaching this team how to score. Were very good at possessing the ball. Were not very good in the offensive third.

Saturday, however, it was clear the Scots had the superior offense, but that doesnt always translate into goals. With overtime looming, however, Gomez gave Carlmont the goal it needed. Amelia Jacobs sent a corner kick into the Monta Vista penalty box, where a scramble ensued. Surrounded by players from both sides, Gomez managed to get a foot on the ball and poked it high. It barely crossed under the crossbar, but it most denitely rippled the roof of the net. There were several frantic seconds left for the Carlmont defense, however. The Matadors had one last offensive foray and on a scramble similar to the one on which the Scots scored, the Monta Vista shot rolled just wide of the frame, with

Panthers advance
By Nathan Mollat

It became evident early on that if the Burlingame boys soccer team was going to beat Kings Academy in the quarternals of the Central Coast Section Division III tournament at Terra Nova Saturday morning, the Panthers were going to have to take it from the Knights. Employing a defense-rst mentality, Kings Academy packed in the defense, often times having all 11 players in the Knights defensive half of the eld, forcing Burlingame to gure out a way to crack the seal. The Panthers nally did with some fancy footwork and patience. Jonah Snyder, on an assist from Kasey Wakasa, found the back of the net in the 61st minute, giving the Panthers a 1-0 win and sending them into the seminals for the second consecutive year. I thought we didnt play our best, but we got the job done, said Burlingame coach Mike Sharabi. The sign of a good team is to get a result when youre not at your best. Sharabi did admit the Knights defensive strategy had something to do with the Panthers frustrations. [The Knights] had a lot of guys back there, Sharabi said. It was tting Snyder ended up with the game winner because the sophomore was arguably the hardest working Panther on the eld. He played the entire 80 minutes making run after run through the middle of the eld at his striker position. There were times he showed some signs of frustration, but tried to remain positive. You just have to be mentally strong, Snyder said. I knew [the goal] was coming, [because] we kept pressing and pressing. While Burlingame (11-7-3 overall) employs

When the going gets tough, the tough play defense. The El Camino boys basketball team is tough and as the No. 2 seed in the Central Coast Section Division III quarternals they showed No. 7 Santa Cruz and the rest of CCS just how tough its going to be to beat them if they play defense. The Colts, behind a more intense, second half effort, erased a ve-point decit at the end of one quarter and turned it into a 67-59 win over the Cardinals. The win advances El Camino into the CCS DIII seminals where theyll face St. Ignatius, Wednesday night, on the Wildcats home oor. We wouldnt have it any other way, said El Camino head coach Archie Junio. I feel like everyone is going to give you their best shot no matter who they are. If youre in CCS, theyre going to give you a battle. Hopefully, you can out duel your opponent. El Camino took Santa Cruzs best shot early and at halftime of Saturdays game there were rumblings from the Santa Cruz faithful about a potential upset. The Cardinals led 16-11 after one quarter and only trailed by ve going into the half perhaps a bit alarming to those expecting the Colts to simply run away with the game. It was a ve-point lead that Santa Cruz built on a mini 5-0 run to start the game behind

Garridos coaching legacy born in the city by the Bay

By Terry Bernal

The University of Texas baseball team generally travels to Stanford under better circumstances. Case in point: In 2009, the last time the two teams met at Sunken Diamond for their traditional early-season series, the Longhorns were riding an undefeated 10-0 record, and came through to take two of three

games from the Cardinals. This season is different, however. Leading up to their weekend series at Stanford, the No.2-ranked Cardinals entered unbeaten. Meanwhile, the Longhorns entered amid a mini two-game losing Augie Garrido streak, including a shocker

last Tuesday in falling 9-7 to unranked University of Texas-Arlington. The upset to UT-Arlington caused Longhorns' manager Augie Garrido to alter his ight plans, allowing him to stay in Austin, Texas an extra day to travel with the team. A big audible to call so early in the season? Perhaps. But, its these types of decisions seemingly minor, but ever so tactical that have coalesced into Garridos legacy as

the greatest coach in college baseball history.

An historic legacy
Garridos legacy, as he enters his 43rd year as a Division I head coach, can be summed up in one word: Winning. With 1,819 wins, he has recorded more victories than any coach in D-I history. He has won ve national champi-

from the oor and took advantage of nine Burlingame turnovers SHC only had ve. The Irish led 13-8 after one quarter after the Panthers took a 3-0 lead. From there, Sacred Heart went on a 15-minute run, outscoring Burlingame 26-8. The Panthers only bucket from the oor in the second quarter came at the 2:41 mark a Connor Haupt 3-pointer. SHC led 26-11. These guys play at a little higher speed, Dowd said of Sacred Heart. It changes the game, the quickness these guys have. It seemed like we werent in our normal rhythm and I think a lot of it is the quickness that (SHC) has. The Irish kept coming, going on their third 90 run of the game to build a lead that got up to 24 points with 3:29 left in the third quarter. The score was 44-22 after three periods. Burlingame made a small run with 3:28 left in the game when they pulled to within 14. But that was as close as they would get. Frankie Ferrari nished with 10 points to lead Burlingame. Nick Loew added six. Haupt scored six points. VALLEY CHRISTIAN 64, MILLS 55 No. 5 Mills saw their season end in disappointing fashion Saturday afternoon, squandering a 2316 at halftime against No. 4 Valley Christian and eventually falling to the Warriors 64-55. Valley Christian used a 30-point fourth quarter to out-gun the Vikings. They just caught re in the second half, kind of scary. Gomez was in position to give her team the win because freshman Soha Said continued her hot play. On a corner kick in the final two minutes of the first half, the ball came out to Said stationed near the top of the penalty box and her shot somehow found its way through a maze of legs and bodies and nestled in the lower left corner of the net. It was Saids fifth goal in four games. Shes come on at the end (of the season). Perfect timing, Doss said. She was frustrated earlier in the season. She had to learn our system. Soha is my only [player] who goes to goal. You give her an opening, she will score. She is a true goal scorer. said Mills guard Matt Wong. We did our best to answer back. But they hit the shots when they mattered the most. We gave a good effort. Theres red-hot shooting, and then there is the level above that where the Warriors found themselves in the fourth quarter. Tied at 34 to begin the period, Valley Christian began chucking up 3-pointers and could not miss if they wanted to. They knocked down six in the period turning a tie into an eight-point advantage they rode to the win. Up until then, Mills had more than held their own against the WCAL team. The Vikings held V.C. to six points in the rst quarter, forcing ve turnovers in the process. Then Mills used a sequence of beautiful basketball, spearheaded by Joseph Warku and his 12 rst-half points, to build a 23-16 lead come halftime. The Warriors made their expected charge in the third quarter, eventually tying the game at 25 with 4:14 left in the quarter. Mills retook the lead on a nice And-1 play by Kevin Chan but the teams went into halftime tied on a buzzerbeating lay-in by Valley Christian. The Warriors got their rst 3-pointer of the quarter right out of the chute and Mills could not recover. Valley Christian led by as many as nine with 1:19 left in the game. Mills got it to within three with less than 40 seconds left in the game. Warku nished with 16 points. Wong scored It was a short-lived lead, however. Following halftime, Monta Vista wasted little time in getting the equalizer. Four minutes in, the Matadors earned a corner kick and converted on a header from the far left post, across the face of the goal, and into the right corner of the net. Carlmont dominated the rest of the game from that point on. The Scots were getting closer and closer to the game winner before Gomez sealed it. My team, the whole year, has fought back, Doss said. I wasnt worried when [Monta Vista] scored. [We] fight for every single ball. The Scots wont be the only San Mateo County team in the semifinals. In Division


Burlingame boysbasketball knocked out of playoffs

15. Brandon Berkovatz added nine points to go with his 13 rebounds and four blocked shots.

It seems the fourth time isnt the charm either. The Burlingame boys basketball season came to an end Saturday at the hands of Sacred Heart Cathedral 56-39, marking the fourth consecutive year the Irish have knocked off the Panthers in the Central Coast Section Division III playoffs. From 2009 to 2011, the losses came in the nals. In 2012, a quarternal matchup in which SHC dominated put a stop to Burlingames season. This would have been a tough go even if we were knocking some shots down, said Burlingame head coach Jeff Dowd. We didnt shoot it well. Sacred Heart Cathedral had a lot to do with that. Theyre quick, theyre long. I knew it was going to be a tough go. We tell our guys, you dont have to be the best team all the time, you have to be the best on that day. You always have a plan, but it doesnt always turn out that way. Shooting 17 percent from the oor in the rst half was denitely not part of the plan. To say that Burlingame struggled would be an understatement on top of shooting 4 of 23 overall in the half, the Panthers were 3 of 16 from beyond the arc and had no points in the paint. Meanwhile the Irish shot an efcient 11 of 23

The Monta Vista player was sent off briefly because of the ensuing yellow card and Gomez was just looking for a way to answer. That (tackle) hurt so bad, Gomez said.

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. When an MRI showed that I had two degenerative discs, I went through a series of lumbar epidural injections without success. 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.

a restaurant in North Beach by night and grew into a kinship with local baseball legend and restaurateur Dante Benedetti. The net of it was, there was a bigger world than the one I grew up in, and that I had a choice as to what I wanted to be, where I wanted to be and that I wasnt designated to work on the shipyard and live in a housing project. So, it meant a lot to me, Garrido said. He stepped into an even bigger world from there. Before becoming a mainstay in Omaha as a coach, Garrido appeared in his rst College World Series as a player at Fresno State in 1959 the rst time the Bulldogs ever advanced to the elite national championship bracket. the Cardinals, in 1969. In the first college game Garrido ever coached at San Francisco State, the Gators opponent was none other than Stanford, at Sunken Diamond.

onships and is a ve-time winner of the National Coach of the Year award. His storied career has been chronicled in several formats, including the Richard Linklater documentary film Inning by Inning: A Portrait of a Coach, as well as, Garridos autobiography Life Is Yours To Win. Also, in the Kevin Costner lm For Love of the Game, Garrido portrays the venerable Yankees manager who, in the ninth inning of Billy Chapels perfect game, orders young pinch hitter Ken Strout to: wreck it.

Building greatness
Amid an era of ongoing protests over Ethnic Studies at San Francisco State, Garrido quickly saw success by posting a 2514 record. In addition, he coached the Gators freshman football team, which he said was fairly typical in those days at state schools. As for tensions on campus, the San Francisco State student strike of 1968 indirectly financed the baseball team. According to Garrido, the team managed to make thousands of dollars selling coffee and sandwiches on campus throughout the year. The money went to pay for travel and new uniforms. After one season at SF State, Garrido was snatched up by Cal Poly, where he served as head coach for three seasons. In 1973, he took over at Fullerton. Two years later, in 1975, Fullerton made its first trip to the College World Series. Garrido said exhibiting fundamentals was what helped build the Fullerton legacy, one that was solidified with its first national championship in 1979. We werent going to get the best players [in those early years], Garrido said. So, how were we going to beat the teams that had the best players? There was only one way. To play the game better than they could. How do you do that? By having more knowledge of teamwork and how to play the game, not just raw skills.

From humble beginnings

Yet, this legendary collegiate coaching career started at the Division-II level, at none other than San Francisco State, in 1969. Little did Garrido know that just one season later, hed be hired at Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo, where hed set out on the road to history. No, I had no idea where it was going to go, Garrido said. I did know I wanted to be a college coach. I did know that. That was my goal. A Bay Area native, Garrido grew up in Vallejo, as the son of shipyard worker in the hard-knocks, blue-collared town. Admittedly a poor high school student, he graduated from Vallejo High, the school that would go on to produce current Yankees ace C.C. Sabathia. Garridos father was also a sports enthusiast, though, and a generous one at that. An accomplished player and coach in his own right, Garridos father worked nights at the citys Federal Terrace Community Building. As Garrido recalls, his father coached everything from football and baseball to ping pong and pool, all the while with the young Garrido in his hip pocket. From there, Garridos baseball career took off in a hurry. As a player, during summers between two years at Vallejo Community College where he had to make up for 12 years of not paying attention Garrido travelled via Greyhound Bus to San Francisco, where he would play ball by day, bus tables at

Inroads to annual series

Following a six-year minor-league career, which spanned from 1961-66, Garrido finished his playing career in a semipro season with the Eureka-Humboldt Crabs. The team featured an array of talent, including an 18year-old first baseman named Mark Marquess. Now in his 36th season as Stanfords manager, Marquess recalls, with a smile, the year he met then-teammate Garrido, in a season Eureka-Humboldt advanced to the semipro championship series in Wichita, Kan. When he joined that team, I got to know Auggie, and he was a great player, Marquess said. Weve been friends ever since. Now, the annual non-conference matchup between Texas and Stanford stands as a legacy to their enduring friendship. The teams have played every year dating back to 1998, Garridos second season with the Longhorns. Prior to that, the two paired up annually during Garridos two epic tenures with Cal State Fullerton. Ive known Mark Marquess for a long time, and have tremendous respect for him, Garrido said. So, that started between Fullerton and Stanford, and then when I came to Texas, we moved it over here. Yet, Garridos inroads with Stanford started in Marquess final season as a player with

still a closer, and currently owns 178 career saves. He just talks the way he thinks, and the way he thinks is deep, Street said of Garrido. Its very forward thinking, but at the same time, usually its dead on. I tell all his players: Youre foolish if you dont listen to this man. Hes the winningest coach in baseball history for a reason. Brandon Belt actually started his collegiate career as a pitcher, and also saw some time as a designated hitter. But, no sooner did he transfer to Texas, did Garrido directly facilitate Belts conversion to rst base. The big lefty would go on to lead the Longhorns in batting in 2009, before being drafted by the Giants. We were out there every single day early ... and Augie was out there helping me, Belt said. Augie does a whole lot of stuff with the inelders. So, he was mainly out there with me, just teaching me the ins-and-outs of playing rst base, and helping me hone my skills out there. And, it helped a lot. And, its Garridos straight-shooting demeanor that not only warrants such astonishing results, but also earns the respect of his players. Hes very personable, and a very genuine person, Belt said. Hes going to let you know how he feels. He expects the best out of you, and hes going to make sure he gets the best out of his ballplayers.

Its how you finish

It was a long, torturous weekend for the Longhorns, as they were swept by Stanford, including a 15-1 blowout in yesterdays nale. Currently hitting just .184 as a team, its hard to imagine a worse start. Add to that, Texas has completely revamped its weekend rotation after losing Cole Green and Taylor Jungmann to the draft, as well as losing Sam Stafford a senior lefty who was drafted by the Yankees in the second round last year, but opted to return to school to injury for the season. Keep in mind, though, the last time the Longhorns turned over their entire weekend rotation was in 2005 the year in which they went on to capture their last national championship. Garrido agrees with the adage: Its not how you start, its how you nish. And, this season, the greatest coach in college baseball history looks to build a winner in the same manner hes built his prestigious career by building on the fundamentals, from which, he has shown time and again, that talent does ourish. [Fundamentals are] what the game is made of, Garrido said. Its what controls consistency ... and the fundamentals bind together the people that are playing together into a team.

Building great players

From Mike Krukow at Cal Poly, to Huston Street and Brandon Belt at Texas, Garrido has directly affected the destinies of many a future major leaguer. In the cases of Krukow and Belt, both converted to new positions at the bequest of Garrido. Krukow started his college career as a catcher, but soon transitioned to the mound with the help of Garrido and Cal Poly pitching coach Berdy Harr. Krukow would go on to set the schools career ERA mark, a record he still holds. And, as a major leaguer, he was a 20-game winner in 1986 with the Giants. Street followed a similar path at Texas. As a two-way player, his hitting as a third baseman left something to be desired. He excelled on the mound, though, saving 41 games throughout his collegiate career, including being named Most Outstanding Player at the College World Series, as part of the 2002 Longhorns national championship team. And, though Street toyed with the idea of converting to the starting rotation, Garrido liked him better as a closer. As a major leaguer, Street is

It all sounds very simple and actually, El Camino made it look that way through certain points in the second half. Eleven of El Caminos 14 buckets in the second half came in transition. But that wasnt before Santa Cruz gave one last valiant effort. Clayton Conroy heated up and his basket to start the fourth quarter made it 52-51 El Camino. The Colts outscored the Cardinals 13-8 the rest of the way. Smith, who struggled from the perimeter, scored nine points the second half. White added 11 to nish with 22. My shot wasnt there today, Smith said. But I tried to get offensive rebounds, get my teammates involved and just keep pushing it on defense. Knight scored 10 points in the second half, nishing with 18 for the game to go with 12 rebounds. The win means a return to the seminals for the Colts, who were last there in 2009 and bowed out to eventual champion Sacred Heart Cathedral. The Colts have never reached the CCS basketball nals. need. A ball was sent into space and Mendoza ran onto it. Sandoval joined the attack and the Bearcats had a 2-on-1. With a defender caught in no-mans land, Mendoza gave a pass back to Sandoval, who slotted it past the goalkeeper and into the left corner of the net. San Mateo will now face No. 10 St. Ignatius (11-8-5) at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at Burlingame. S.I. beat No. 2 Leigh 1-0. In other CCS action, fourth-seeded Serra (15-3-4) beat Alisal, advancing to the Division I seminals on penalty kicks. The Padres were tied at 1 after 80 minutes of regulation, but appeared to have the game won with a strike late in the second overtime period, but Alisal responded, tying the score at 2 and setting up the penalty kick shootout where the Padres prevailed 5-4. Top-seeded Menlo-Atherton (16-0-5) also advanced to the Division 1 semis by beating No. 8 Santa Teresa 2-1. The Padres and Bears face each other at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Del Mar High.

Jamie Saint-John, who would be a thorn on El Caminos side the entire game. The Cardinals played a little defense of their own to start. They forced Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division MVP Elijah White into a 0 of 7 start from the eld and the entire Colts team to a 5 of 19 start in the rst quarter. The advantage increased to seven points to begin the second before El Camino really got to work. Defensive pressure really turned it around for us, said El Camino guard Michael Smith. That led to transition. Because, we were playing really slow in the rst half and in the second half, we kept pushing the intensity of our defense. El Camino outscored the Cardinals 22-12 from the 7:31 mark of the second quarter. It was then that White knocked down his rst bucket of the game.

PHOENIX Oakland infielder Scott Sizemore sprained his left knee during elding drills Saturday, the first day of full squad workouts. Sizemore was scheduled to undergo an MRI exam to determine the extent of the injury. The Athletics open the season on March 28 against Scott Sizemore Seattle in Tokyo, and it was uncertain whether Sizemore would be ready by then. A Comcast Sports Net Bay Area cameraman captured the aftermath on lm, which shows Sizemore with his arms around two of the teams personnel, with As manager Bob Melvin also at the scene. He was not putting any weight on his left foot. You dont like to see that happen on the rst day, Melvin said. On top of that hes an integral part of the team. You feel bad for him. Sizemore, who came to the As in a trade with the Detroit Tigers last May, batted .249 with 11 home runs and 52 RBIs in 93 games with Oakland. Sizemore was expected to be in the opening day lineup at third base. Melvin said the team will look to a combination of Eric Sogard, Adam Rosales, Josh Donaldson and Wes Timmons as a replacement. Donaldson, who appeared in the major leagues with the As briey in 2010, took over for Sizemore and later went behind the plate to catch live batting practice. Originally a rst-round draft pick of the Chicago Cubs, Donaldson was traded to the As in a deal that sent Rich Harden to the Cubs. NOTES: Manny Ramirez faced major league pitching for the rst since last April, stepping in against Jerrod Parker and Tyson Ross for a combined 15 pitches.

My turnaround came, basically from playing D, White said, let the game ow to me. Instead of me forcing up shots, I set up my teammates and my shots will be there. White nished the half with 11 points. Anthony Knight added eight and you cant say enough about Jalen Bitangas effort inside for El Camino. Three of his four buckets in the half came from offensive put-backs. The Colts led 35-30 after shooting 56 percent in the second quarter. But there was still work to be done. The halftime adjustment was to play our normal defense, Junio said. We had made some reads off lm and they werent true to form. We thought this team wasnt as good shooting as it was. We played off them a bit as opposed to our normal style of defense. I know it wasnt the best defensive performance by us, but it got us through. Our defense led to transition basketball, White said. Were a transition team, more than a half court team. So all we did was pressurized, get easy steals and make easy transition lay-ups. coming to me, Snyder said. They (the defense) gave me a lot of space on that goal. When my time comes, I have to take (advantage) of it. The Panthers now face No. 3 Sacred Heart Cathedral (12-6-4) at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Burlingame. The Irish beat No. 11 Stevenson 4-0 to advance.

a possession style of game, playing against a team packing it in defensively requires a new tactic: the Panthers had to focus on moving the ball to one side of the eld before trying to switching to the other side of the pitch. You try to draw them all to one side of the eld and then switch it quickly, Sharabi said. The Panthers nally gured out the formula midway through the second half. Ryan Smith triggered the sequence when he ran down a ball on the left ank, whipping a cross into the Knights penalty box. Wakasa came running in and used a ying back heel to ick the ball to Snyder, who was unmarked. Snyder calmly settled the ball and then slotted it past the charging goalkeeper and a closing defender to score the games only goal. I saw [Wakasas back heel]. I knew it was

The third-seeded Bearcats made the Aztec Warriors look like the No. 11 seed they were, dominating from beginning to end to advance to the seminals for the rst time since 2006. Truth be told, San Mateo (17-2-2) should have won the game by a larger margin. The Bearcats out-shot Yerba Buena 12-5, 11 of which were on frame. The Bearcats had plenty of scoring chances early on, but just could not nish. Ezequiel Sandoval and Alejandro Mendoza both fanned on golden opportunities, but the two paired up in the 19th minute to give San Mateo all the offense it would

Giants thrilled to be back together

By Janie McCauley

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Scottsdale Stadium went silent not once but twice Sunday. On San Franciscos rst day of hitters facing pitchers, right-hander Matt Cain fell to the ground after taking a line drive off his left calf. A short while later, slugger Pablo Sandoval got hit beneath his left armpit by a pitch from reliever Jeremy Affeldt and was slow getting up. Athletic trainer Dave Groeschner hurried to check on both players. Team orthopedist Dr. Ken Akizuki nervously jumped from his comfortable spot in the sun leaning over the dugout REUTERS rail.

plus offensively because we didnt score a lot of runs last year. Posey hit live batting practice Sunday and caught Cain with hitters in the batters box for the rst time since his season-ending collision at the plate last May 25. That marked another signicant step for the 2010 NL Rookie of the Year, who has recovered from three torn ligaments in his left ankle and a broken bone in his lower leg. Thats the most excited Ive been to take live BP, ever, Posey said. It was fun. This is all about trying to get your timing right. I guess I didnt really know what to expect. Thats the rst arm Ive seen since last May. Former Giants second baseman turned coach Jeff Kent shared his thoughts with Posey and others near the cage. Facing Sergio Romo, Posey lined a fastball to left and crushed a slider to the warning track in right. Fans yelled, That a boy, Buster! and Youre coming back! I had to whip out the good one already, Romo said of the slider. He went out there taking hacks. Right out of the gate he was swinging. It was good to see that. It was very uplifting to see that. A healthy Buster and his personality puts us through the roof. Manager Bruce Bochy plans to decide in the next few days whether Posey will play in the Giants Cactus League opener Saturday against the D-backs. Im staying tuned, Posey said. While Posey came out of his day great, there were two big scares. About 200 fans watching cheered and clapped when it became clear Cain and Sandoval were unscathed.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. NASCAR has raced on the beach at Daytona, under the lights and even around a pesky pothole. But never on a Monday until now. The Daytona 500 was postponed Sunday for the rst time in its 54-year history after heavy rain saturated Daytona International Speedway. NASCAR ofcials spent more than four hours waiting for a window to dry the famed track, but it never came. When the latest storm cell passed over the speedway around 5 p.m., they had little choice but to call it a day. The 500-mile race was rescheduled for noon Monday. It will be aired on Fox. This is one of the toughest things for us drivers, pole-sitter Carl Edwards said. Its now who can really stay focused. Thats not just the drivers, thats the pit crews, the crew chiefs, everyone, the ofcials. But I think well be just ne. But Monday might be another test for both drivers and fans. The forecast calls for more rain, and ofcials are prepared to wait all day and into the night to avoid a Tuesday race, which would strain teams that must get to Phoenix for next weeks race. The longer runway we have

tomorrow to get in the Daytona 500, the greater the likelihood for us to start and nish the event on Monday, NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp said. There are certainly a lot of considerations that go into the start time decision, and we believe scheduling it for noon gives us the best opportunity for us to get the race in tomorrow. Eight previous Daytona 500s have endured rain delays, the latest in 2009. But never before had storms forced NASCARs premier event to be moved. I think thats a pretty good record for NASCAR, Edwards said. Theyve been living right to have 53 of these and never have one postponed. Thats pretty spectacular. ... I think NASCAR, theyre doing the right thing, you know, not dragging this out. Noontime showers sent fans scattering for cover and leaving everyone in wait-and-see mode. Puddles of water formed in parts of the ineld, and many fans got drenched as they tried to make the best of a less-thanideal situation. Drivers retreated to their motorhomes, relaxing while keeping an eye on developments. Edwards, Brad Keselowski and others took naps. Former Daytona 500 winners Jamie McMurray and Trevor Bayne did in-studio interviews with Fox. Another previous race winner, Ryan Newman, played with his daughter in the motorhome lot.

The Artistearns best-picture

By David Germain

LOS ANGELES The Artist won ve Academy Awards on Sunday including best picture, becoming the rst silent lm to triumph at Hollywoods highest honors since the original Oscar ceremony 83 years ago. Among other prizes for the black-and-white comic melodrama were best actor for Jean Dujardin and director for Michel Hazanavicius. The other top Oscars went to Meryl Streep as best actress for The Iron Lady, Octavia Spencer as supporting actress for The Help and Christopher Plummer as supporting actor for Beginners. The Artist is the rst silent winner since the World War I saga Wings was named outstanding picture at the rst Oscars in 1929 had a silent lm earned the top prize. I am the happiest director in the world, Havanavicius said, thanking the cast, crew and canine co-star Uggie. I also want to thank the nancier, the crazy person who put money in the movie. The win was Streeps rst Oscar in 29 years, since she won best actress for Sophies Choice. She had lost 13 times in a row since then. Streep also has a supporting-actress Oscar for 1979s Kramer vs. Kramer. When they called my name, I had this feeling I could hear half of America go, Oh, no, why her again? But whatever, Streep said, laughing. I really understand Ill never be up here again. I really want to think all my colleagues, my friends. I look out here and I see my life before my eyes, my old friends, my new friends. Really, this is such a great honor but the think that counts the most with me is the friendship and the love and the sheer job weve shared making moves together. Streep is only the fth performer to receive three Oscars. Jack Nicholson, Ingrid Bergman and Walter Brennan all earned three, while Katharine Hepburn won four. The 82-year-old Plummer became the oldest acting winner ever for his role as an elderly widower who comes out as gay in Beginners. Youre only two years older than me, darling, Plummer said, addressing his Oscar statue in this 84th year of the awards. Where have you been all my life? I have a confession to make. When I rst emerged from my mothers womb, I was already rehearsing my Oscar speech.

hen I was 6, I was crowned Junior Art Champion by the San Francisco Chronicle. Crowned may be a stretch. My drawing of a black poodle, along with my name, age and hometown of San Bruno, were printed in the paper under the Junior Art Champion headline. The paper sent a gift certicate and a grand prize check for $20. Twenty big ones is pretty cool for a 6-year-old. So is a news clipping. Guess my drawing was a harbinger of sorts, considering my vocation. Not sure how I chose a poodle, since we didnt have one, I cant remember neighbors having one and poodle wasnt even my favorite breed. That distinction belonged to the Puli, a seldom seen moppy-looking breed in my Encyclopedia Britannica. Imagine a poodle with long dreadlocks thats a Puli. To this day, Ive never seen one in person. If you have a little one in your home who likes to draw and likes animals, check out this website: The San Mateo County Health Department, in recognition of National Public Health Week, is sponsoring a coloring contest for kids in grades K-5. Kids are asked to color a page from a coloring book which can be downloaded from the website above or picked up in person at our new Center for Compassion, 1450 Rollins Road in Burlingame. All submissions must be received by March 16. The county Health Department will review submissions and pick winners. Those winners one for each grade will get a special tour of our new center with their families and be among the rst people to see our Humane House. Construction on this 350-square-foot, walk-in clubhouse with uniquely-presented learning lessons for kids and adults, begins this week. Even if your youngster doesnt get around to entering the contest, the coloring book with a Doggie Dos and Donts theme is a great resource for kids and parents.

Pines thoughts about the short time frame and thinks the decision may come down to the level of interest. If there are only one or so internal candidates, doing an appointment might not be a bad thing, she said, adding that shes not yet wedded to one particular option. An appointment costs the county nothing while a special all-mail ballot election would cost an estimated $800,000. A special election at the polls would cost $1.7 million. If the board instead consolidates it with a regular election date, the estimated cost is $40,000 in June and $650,000 in November because the county is not reimbursed federal election costs. Part of me says thats an awful lot of money, Tissier said. Pine said he is puzzled by the hefty November price tag and hopes the county counsel will have answers on the large difference between that and the June election. As a member of the charter review committee that recommended the new policy governing elections and appointments for mid-term vacancies, Pine also favored a recommendation not adopted by the Board of Supervisors to convert the elected controller into an appointed position. If there arent multiple people clamoring for the controller job, too, Horsley agrees with Tissier that perhaps an appointment might be the best cost-savings measure. It is sort of a professional position with specic qualications. Somebody in [Huenings] ofce may want it but I dont know how many other people, Horsley said. A candidate, regardless of whether appointed or elected, must meet at least one of several criteria: be a certied pubreplace the Old Edgemont School; followed by El Crystal Elementary School and Belle Aire Elementary School in 1946, Capuchino High School in 1950, Parkside Intermediate School in 1954, Crestmoor Elementary and Rollingwood Elementary in 1957 and John Muir Elementary, Carl Sandburg Elementary and, nally, Willard Engvall Intermediate School. You needed a scorecard to keep track of all of the construction activity. Russ started at Belle Aire in 1958. After four years, he moved to Engvall Intermediate School, where he taught for 16 years, nally transferring to Park Side Junior High in 1978. There he taught the mathematics classes. Russ, a dedicated educator, was a good t for the high-quality education demanded by the community. He and his family contributed much to the success of the San Bruno community. His wife, Angela, taught school for a time and then conthe instrument. The San Francisco Conservatory has one of our nations top music programs for young people, comparable to Juilliard or Eastman School of Music. Jennifer has the potential, a terric attitude and great family support, said music instructor Kurt Weaver said. Her audition wasnt easy. It required increasingly difcult tryouts over four months culminating with her scholarship. Jennifer grew exponentially with each new challenge, showing how rewarding the pursuit of a major goal can be, said Weaver. It is great to see someone with so many options at such an early age. School District, for example, the board previously discussed noticing 15 FTEs 13 elementary teachers and two English/language arts instructors. Superintendent David Hutt explained that, without the proposed November taxes, districts will lose $370 per student or an estimated $970,000 in the case of San Bruno. Planning for that means looking at sending notications to a significant number of teachers, he said. Similarly, the Millbrae Elementary School District is planning for an estimated $838,790 loss, said Superintendent Linda Luna. With a barelic accountant; hold a baccalaureate degree in accounting or its equivalent and not less than three years experience within the last ve years in a senior management position in a public agency, private rm or nonprot organization; be a designated professional auditor with at least 16 college semester units in accounting, auditing or nance; or, have at least three years continuous service as a county auditor, chief deputy county auditor or chief assistant county auditor. The new controller will nish out Huenings term of which two years are left. If the board opts for the June election, the question then becomes whether Mark Church, chief elections ofcer and assessor-county clerk-recorder, will extend the periods for candidate ling and applying for absentee ballots. The period currently ends March 9. If the board prefers June, Church said he will set the ling period from March 5 to March 23. Thats three weeks, which is ample time for candidates to get the paperwork done, Church said. That extension does not apply to any of the other races currently under way. Supervisor Carole Groom did not return inquiries for comment. Supervisor Rose Jacobs Gibson was not available. Huening submitted his resignation Feb. 10 to be effective March 31. Huening, 70, has spent 30 years in public service including time as a county supervisor, a community college district trustee and, since 1998, controller.

She unexpectedly died in 1988 after a short illness. In 1992, after 34 years of teaching, Russ retired. He was not done with education and serving the community, however. In 1993, he was elected to the San Bruno Park Elementary School District Board of Trustees, retiring from that position in 2009. In addition to serving on the board, Russ volunteered to teach science to the rst grade classes at Allen School. He continues to teach these science classes, bringing his many years of experience and knowledge to the students who at this very young age are still full of wonder and enthusiasm, eager to learn about the world, from their backyards to outer space.

troller is the countys chief scal ofcer. Supervisor Don Horsley prefers going to the polls, particularly if that can happen with the June 5 presidential primary on which county voters will also choose a District Four supervisor and consider three tax measures. I think people like elections, frankly, and as long as you have an elected position you should go that way. On the other hand, if we end up going with a single item on the ballot, it doesnt make a lot of nancial sense, Horsley said. In November, voters may still have a supervisor race to consider. If none of the candidates and currently there are seven people potentially running secure more than 50 percent of the vote, the two top vote-getters will square off in the fall. Supervisor Dave Pine, an outspoken proponent of elections over appointments for supervisors and the winner of a special election himself, isnt quite ready to weigh in denitively on this situation. I still want to make sure I understand what the options are if we go with an election in November, he said. Although June is not out of the question, Pine said that doesnt offer enough time for potential candidates to decide to run and mount a campaign. Pine also sees the controller job as different than that of a supervisor in calling for voters rather than ofcials to pick a replacement. Supervisor Adrienne Tissier echoes

Ho, who was recently awarded a scholarship to attend the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. The ambitious youth was excited for the acceptance since it will be another step toward her goal of teaching children to play piano.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2012 PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)If you feel that its necessary

for someone to be more assertive in making a group decision, step forward. Theres no need to be tentativeyour judgment is good and youll make the right call. ARIES (March 21-April 19)Although most of your personal endeavors will easily be accomplished, you may have to put in some extra hours and/or resources on your work-related efforts in order to get what you want. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)If there is someone you recently met whom you find to be quite appealing, dont keep Dan Cupid waiting in the wings. Instead,

you should be the one who makes the first move. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)Youve been lucky so far in that youve been getting away with neglecting a responsibility entrusted to you. Before the powers that be find out about it, you need to halt your procrastination and get crackin. CANCER (June 21-July 22)That restless spirit of yours wont easily be appeased unless you use your time productively. Why not make efforts to acquire some new knowledge that you can use to enhance your skill set? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)It isnt likely to be easy for you to dismiss a certain commercial matter from your thoughts. In order to remove it from your mind, take care of it as soon as you can.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)Youll have no trouble attracting others to your banner once they see how fervently you believe in your cause. Get on your soapbox and start proselytizing. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)Should you discover that an associate is doing a better job than you can do in a joint endeavor, dont hesitate to relegate yourself to the sidelines and let him or her take the lead. Be a valuable backup. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)If you believe there is something that could be of mutual benefit to you and a partner, dont allow too much time to go by without checking it out. It could be exactly what you both need.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)Its imperative that

you make all of your own major decisions instead of delegating any of them to others. A surrogates thinking might be inferior to yours. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)Sometimes its difficult to learn anything new from someone whose ideas parallel yours, but today could be an exception. Its OK to stick with people who think as you do. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)Instead of waiting for others to get things rolling, take the initiative and do so yourself. Once you do, the entire group will be glad you did, and will happily jump on board. COPYRIGHT 2012 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.
