Former elections chief joins supervisor race

Field for June ballots District Four seat grows to eight candidates
By Michelle Durand

Warren Slocum spent 25 years presiding over the countys elections including those for the Board of Supervisors. Now, the former chief elections ofcer and assessor-county clerkrecorder is ready to participate him-

self in such a race on the June ballot. Slocum, 64, pulled papers from his old s t o m p i n g grounds yesterday, jumping Warren Slocum into a District

Four competition already teeming with seven other candidates. Everybody wanted a competition in board races and now it has come to be, Slocum said. Slocum, who lives in Redwood City, said he was drawn into the race after being an outside observer to government the past year and looking at who is already running.

I thought what this campaign is all about is experience. I can hit the ground running and apply some of my knowledge to the situations and challenges that we face, Slocum said. He counts the budget decit the biggest of those challenges Frankly, everything relates to our budget situation, he said but he

also ticks off health care reform, jail realignment and pension reform. Slocum said the county has taken some steps toward a budget resolution, but more is needed. I dont think we have a lot of time to solve these problems. There needs to be some sense of urgency

Renovations under way at San Mateo Performing Arts Center

Despite some lingering concerns over noise and public safety, the San Carlos Planning Commission last night gave the green light to expand the Carlos Club by turning a parking lot behind the night club into an open patio with live acoustic music and food. The commission voted 4-1, with Vice Chair Scot Marsters opposing, in favor of the permit which was met with applause from owner Fred Duncan and his supporters in the audience. The decision can be

Unlike a lengthy January meeting that ended with more questions than answers, the Planning Commission Monday night made a decision in little more than an hour and without much public input save one Greater East San Carlos resident who opposed the plan. Many of the commissioners said they liked the tweaks to the design and planned hours of operation but Marsters raised the opposition of the citys top law enforcement ofcial,

Thought for the Day

Dont be consistent,but be simply true.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., U.S.Supreme Court justice (1841-1935)

This Day in History


What became known as the Ash Wednesday Storm began pounding the mid-Atlantic coast; over a three-day period, the storm resulted in 40 deaths and caused more than $200 million in property damage.

In 1834, the city of York in Upper Canada was incorporated as Toronto. In 1836, the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, fell to Mexican forces after a 13-day siege. In 1853, Verdis opera La Traviata premiered in Venice, Italy. In 1857, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Dred Scott v. Sandford that Scott, a slave, was not an American citizen and could not sue for his freedom in federal court. In 1902, Congress passed a measure creating a Census Ofce in the Department of the Interior (the ofce was moved to the Department of Commerce and Labor the following year). In 1912, Oreo sandwich cookies (originally called biscuits) were rst introduced by Nabisco. In 1933, a nationwide bank holiday declared by President Franklin D. Roosevelt went into effect. In 1944, U.S. heavy bombers staged the first full-scale American raid on Berlin during World War II. In 1957, the former British African colonies of the Gold Coast and Togoland became the independent state of Ghana. In 1967, the daughter of Josef Stalin, Svetlana Alliluyeva, appeared at the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi and declared her intention to defect to the West. In 1970, a bomb being built inside a Greenwich Village townhouse by the radical Weathermen accidentally went off, destroying the house and killing three group members. In 1987, 193 people died when the British ferry Herald of Free Enterprise capsized off the Belgian port of Zeebrugge. The rst Lethal Weapon movie, starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, was released. Ten years ago: Independent Counsel Robert Ray issued his nal report in which he wrote that former President Bill Clinton could have been indicted and probably would have been convicted in the scandal involving former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Detroit-area woman stalked by aggressive turkey
COMMERCE TOWNSHIP, Mich. An Oakland County woman says shes become a prisoner on her own property, stalked and harassed by a 25-pound turkey. Edna Geisler calls the foul bird Godzilla. The 69-year-old told the Detroit Free Press that the turkey wanders near her Commerce Township property each day from nearby woods. She recently couldnt get to her front door after a trip to the grocery store. I have to go to the post ofce at 6 oclock in the morning to avoid him, said Geisler, who has been bumped and clawed. She has tried changing her schedule but this turkey is no dummy. A friend, Rick Reid, said the turkey went after him, too, when he opened the door on his minivan. He tried to come right in the door, Reid said. He bit me on the elbow. Indeed, a video posted online by the Free Press shows Godzilla roaming the grounds like theyre his own. State wildlife expert Tim Payne said adult turkeys are known to aggressively defend their territory, although most fear people. This bird has probably attacked, and the person retreats, said Payne of the Department of Natural Resources. What it tells the bird is, What Im doing is good. It reinforces the aggressive behavior. Payne suggested Geisler open a large umbrella to drive the turkey back to the woods. Make some runs at the bird and become the aggressor, he said. The bird needs to learn whos the boss. Geisler wants the turkey gone by summer so she can work in her garden. The hunting season opens in April. Every time I eat turkey I smile, she said. Id like to do that to him. founding father. Irelands national police force, the Garda Siochana, said detectives were studying hours of closed-circuit TV footage to try to identify the approximately 40 people who walked out the cathedrals front doors Saturday morning. The force said the thief may have hidden overnight in the cathedral and ed with the heart when its doors opened Saturday. Worshippers didnt spot that the relic was missing until Saturday afternoon. Nobody was arrested. Nuala Kavanagh, the cathedrals director of operations, said whoever stole it appeared to have no interest in financial gain, since several nearby objects made of gold and other precious materials were not touched. Its completely bizarre, she said. They didnt touch anything else. They wanted the heart of St. Laurence OToole. Church services went ahead as normal Sunday. The trickle of tourists visiting the Viking-era cathedral werent told of the theft. Many approached the OToole chapel and spent much time looking, confusedly, between their guide books and the pried-open box. Irelands churches have suffered a spate of such robberies of irreplaceable, but also hard to sell, religious artifacts. Last year three relics believed to be fragments of the cross used to crucify Jesus were stolen from Holy Cross Abbey in County Tipperary.


Saints ancient heart stolen from Dublin cathedral

DUBLIN Somewhere in Ireland, a burglar has the heart of a saint. Ofcials at Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin said Sunday theyre distraught and perplexed over the theft of the churchs most precious relic: the preserved heart of St. Laurence OToole, patron saint of Dublin. OTooles heart had been displayed in the cathedral since the 13th century. It was stored in a heart-shaped wooden box and secured in a small, square iron cage on the wall of a chapel dedicated to his memory. On Saturday someone cut through two bars, pried the cage loose, and made off with the relic. I am devastated that one of the treasured artifacts of the cathedral is stolen, said the Most Rev. Dermot Dunne, the cathedrals dean. It has no economic value but it is a priceless treasure that links our present foundation with its

City promotes safetycampaign

Following San Bruno tragedy,San Mateo has boosted preparedness effort
By Bill Silverfarb

Police reports
Mime crime
A man wearing black with a painted white face knocked on residents door on Lux Avenue in South San Francisco before 5:27 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28.

Since the gas pipeline explosion in San Bruno nearly 18 months ago that left eight people dead, the city of San Mateo has boosted an effort to better prepare its residents for similar disasters. And the two earthquakes that rattled the Bay Area yesterday morning are proof a disaster can strike at any time, said Ben Toy, who is on the San Mateo United Homeowners Association and Home Association of North Central San Mateo boards. Last March, the city started a Be Ready, Be Safe, Be Involved campaign to link the citys police and re departments with the homeowners association to promote neighborhood watches and emergency training. A year later, more residents have taken the fire departments Community Emergency

Response Team training and the number of neighborhood watch blocks has grown to 350. There are now 500 CERT graduates in San Mateo along with more than 25 homeowners and neighborhood associations throughout the city. The neighborhood groups provide a forum for residents to connect and share ideas about safety with the city, Toy said. Toy recalls the Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989 when he was working in Milpitas and it took eight hours to drive home to San Mateo. I came home to a dark house and only two of our neighbors were prepared for a disaster back then, he said. The citys Be Ready campaign has been effective, he said, because it has caused more people to discuss preparedness and to take CERT training classes. The true test is when there is a disaster. It is not if but when it will come, Toy said.

Many of the components for the Be Ready campaign have been in place for years, said San Mateo Mayor Brandt Grotte. It is always helpful for more people to become and remain interested in emergency preparedness. When a major event happens, we will all need to rely on our friends and neighbors while emergency responders may be occupied with high-priority calls and events, Grotte said. San Mateo residents contributed 77,000 hours of service in 2011 related to preparedness valued at $1.6 million, according to a statement by San Mateo City Manager Susan Loftus. The citys partnership with our homeowners and neighborhood associations helps ensure the readiness, safety and involvement of San Mateo residents, Loftus said in the statement. The City Council presented the homeowners association with a proclamation last night to honor its readiness efforts.

SACRAMENTO Californias nearly four-year-old ban on drivers using handheld cellphones is saving lives, according to a University of California, Berkeley, study released Monday. The study found that overall trafc deaths dropped 22 percent, while deaths blamed on drivers using hand-held cellphones were

down 47 percent. Deaths among drivers who use hands-free phones dropped at a similar rate. The universitys Safe Transportation Research and Education Center examined deaths for two years before and two years after the cellphone ban took effect in July 2008. It found a similar drop in injuries attributed to drivers cellphone use. The number of deaths among drivers using hand-held phones fell from 100 to 53 during

that period, while the number of injuries dropped from 7,720 to 3,862. The California Ofce of Trafc Safety, which sought the study, said deaths and injuries are declining in part because of an overall decrease in drivers using cellphones. An unrelated survey commissioned by the state last summer found 40 percent of drivers say they talk less while driving since the ban took effect, even if they have a legal handsfree device.

Man who fled scene of fatal hit-and-run sentenced to year in jail

A San Bruno man who pleaded no contest to fatally hitting a pedestrian near Pacifica last year has been sentenced to one year in county jail, according to the District Attorneys Office. Leopoldo Tobilla, 58, hit 25-year-old Scott Garrigan on a poorly lit stretch of roadway at Sharp Park Road and Skyline Boulevard at about 1:35 a.m. on Feb. 20, 2011, prosecutors said. Tobilla left the scene of the crash, and Garrigans body was struck by a second vehicle, the driver of which called 911. After speaking to an insurance agent who told him to return to the scene, Tobilla drove back and was arrested for felony hit-and-run. A field sobriety test showed Tobilla had .06 blood alcohol level, which is within the legal limit. Police concluded that Garrigan caused the accident, and Tobilla was not charged with voluntary manslaughter. He pleaded no contest to one count of felony hit-and-run and one count of misdemeanor reckless driving involving alcohol, according to the District Attorneys Office. In addition to a yearlong jail sentence, Tobilla was ordered to pay $25,464 in restitution to Garrigans family.

McCain calls for lead on Syria airstrikes

WASHINGTON Sen. John McCain on Monday became the rst senator to call for airstrikes against Syria, saying President Barack Obama has taken too soft a stand against President Bashar Assad and his brutal crackdown on his own people. The Arizona Republican said the Syrian governments slaughter of unarmed civilians has likely resulted in war crimes and that its neighbors in the region will intervene militarily, with or without the U.S. From the Senate oor on Monday, McCain said the United States has a moral and strategic obligation to force out Assad and his loyalists. The only realistic way to do so is with foreign airpower, McCain concluded. The United States should lead an interJohn McCain national effort to protect key population centers in Syria, especially in the north, through airstrikes on Assads forces. It was a marked change from McCains remarks last month, when he told CBS This Morning that the U.S. should nd ways to help the Syrian people without putting American boots on the ground. Then, he said the options included medical care and technical assistance to safe havens for refugees of the violence. But in his remarks Monday, McCain declared it was time to step up militarily and that the U.S. should lead the effort with direct military action. The senior Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, McCain was one of the rst to call for arming the rebels. That idea has divided members of Congress and drawn concern from the administration about the further militarization of Syria. The latest McCain proposal is also expected to divide war-weary lawmakers who also opposed the operation in Libya last year.

Rendering of Balancing Act,by San Rafael-based artist James Moore,that will be placed in San CarlosLaurel Street Park on Saturday.

City to dedicate public art


A downtown San Carlos park is about to get a new occupant the citys rst piece of outdoor public art. The city will dedicate the sculpture of an abstract gure balancing three spheres on Saturday in Laurel Street Park. The ofcial unveiling comes six months after the work, Balancing Act by San Rafaelbased artist James Moore, was picked from a pool of six proposals. Moores metal and mixed media works are based on the geometric shape the cube and create sculptures that suggest movement. The intention of the San Carlos piece, according to the city, is to offer an optimistic view of life as a dance of possibilities and enables individuals from varied backgrounds to identify with its positive message. The sculpture is stainless steel patinaed with high-grade automotive paint and a protective clear coat. Funding comes from a $10,000

donation by Matteson Development Partners, Inc. and the $2,500 remaining from the 75th anniversary celebration artwork fund. The San Carlos City Council adopted a public art policy last July and followed in September with a majority of members favoring Balancing Act over the previously recommended Laurel Wreath, a clock encircled by leaves. The piece is the citys rst public art outside a ne art collection of paintings on the second oor of City Hall. A kiosk in the park was demolished to make way for the sculpture which had led to further council discussion about using movable information signs and putting a new bulletin board elsewhere. Moore also has work commissioned in Palo Alto, the Hillview Community Center in Los Altos and Kaiser Permanente in Oakland. The dedication is 10 a.m. Saturday, march 10 at Laurel Street Park, San Carlos.

Millions granted to schools for health programs

Dozens of elementary schools in San Mateo County will share a $4 million grant to boost the physical and mental health needs of more than 24,000 students over the next three years. The grant, from the Peninsula Health Care District, supports the Healthy Schools Initiative in the Burlingame, Hillsborough, Millbrae, San Bruno and San Mateo-Foster City elementary school districts. The $4 million can be used to fund positions such as school nurses and to support programs and materials that encourage healthy living. The future health of our communities is a direct reection of the healthy nutritional and physical tness habits students learn during their formative years, Dr. Dan Ullyot, district board chair, wrote in a prepared statement. The district will work with school superintendents to identify the specic needs of their 39 schools along with students and families. School nurses, additional physical education classes and school-based health clinics are but a few examples, Ullyot wrote in the statement. With state budget constraints, there are many missed opportunities for health education that could impact a childs health for the rest of his/her life, according to a PHCD study. In a separate action at its meeting last week, the districts board also approved $500,000 over four years to fund a fulltime psychiatric resident physician in the San Mateo County Health Systems Behavioral Health Program. Recently, the county was forced to eliminate one psychiatric resident position due to budget considerations. The $500,000 will be used to support a health care specialist to serve the area. The need for additional psychiatric service spans all socio-economic and ethnic populations, the districts Chief Executive Ofcer Cheryl Fama said. Our district has a long-standing history of supporting behavioral health programs. The additional psychiatric resident will directly serve patients and behavioral health services while contributing to the future of this important county residency program, Fama wrote in a prepared statement. The health care district, established in 1947, is supported by local property taxes and serves residents in northern San Mateo County. Southern San Mateo County is served by the Sequoia Healthcare District, which also supports the countys Healthy Schools Initiative and other health-related programs.

Beaten Giants fan Stow moved to new rehab center

SAN FRANCISCO The family of a San Francisco Giants fan beaten nearly to death outside Dodger Stadium says hes been moved to a new rehab facility because he no longer needs constant medical care. Bryan Stows family says in a blog post that the 43-year-old former paramedic will undergo aggressive therapy to help him become more independent. He now shares an apartment with two other patients, and they have full-time assistance. The improvements come nearly a year after the attack in Los Angeles that left him Bryan Stow in a coma.

Woman pleads not guilty to stabbing husband


Group seeking recall for Oakland mayor gives up

OAKLAND A group that aimed to recall Oaklands mayor from ofce is suspending its effort. The group, called Recall and Restore, announced Monday that it will no longer be collecting signatures to put a recall measure for Mayor Jean Quan on a future ballot. It says it doesnt have enough money to collect the 20,000 signatures needed by their May 14 deadline. Quans critics say she hasnt done enough to reduce crime and create jobs since taking ofce in 2011. She also faced criticism for her handling of last years Occupy Oakland protests, some of which turned violent.

The Los Altos woman accused of Tasing and stabbing her estranged husband at their Redwood City construction rm ofce while wearing bubble wrap to protect herself will learn later this month if shell stand trial for premeditated attempted murder. Laura Jean Wenke, 51, pleaded not guilty to that charge and felony assault. A preliminary hearing date was set for March 29. If convicted, she faces seven years to life in prison because of the premeditation allegation.

The couple are in the midst of a divorce and have a young child. Wenke stood to gain a $2 million life insurance payout if her husband died and was very jealous of his new girlfriend, Laura Wenke according to prosecutors. On Sept. 15, Wenke allegedly arrived at the family business, Wenke Construction, on the end block of Laurel Street and parked a truck in front of the ofce win-

dows to block the view of passersby. Inside, prosecutors say she asked her husband to look up something in his computer and, as he worked, she stunned and then stabbed him with a folding knife several times in the neck and torso. After her arrest, police reported she was wearing a mechanics jumpsuit and underneath the clothing her torso was swaddled in bubble wrap, apparently as protection against being hit herself. Wenkes husband was hospitalized with injuries to his lung, neck and chest but later released. Wenke remains in custody without bail.

Troopers order protesters to leave Californias Capitol

By Hannah Drier

SACRAMENTO About 40 protesters remained inside the state Capitol Monday night after California Highway

Patrol ofcers shut down the building and threatened to arrest them. The number dwindled from about 100 after ofcers gave the order to leave. The number of police soon outnumbered the protesters, who chanted No

cuts, no fees, education must be free. They were part of a daylong protest over state budget cuts to education. Hundreds more protesters and police officers remained outside; dozens of CHP ofcers in riot gear stood in rows.

Obama,Netanyahu talk unity,underline differences

By Ben Feller

WASHINGTON Taking sharply different stands, President Barack Obama on Monday urged pressure and diplomacy to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear bomb while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu emphasized his nations right to a pre-emptive attack. Even in proclaiming unity, neither leader gave ground on how to resolve the crisis. Seated together in the Oval Ofce, Obama and Netanyahu at times tried to speak for each other, and other times spoke past one another. The president and prime minister are linked by the history and necessity of their nations deep alliance, if not much personal warmth, and both sought to steer the Iran agenda on their terms. I know that both the prime minister and I prefer to resolve this diplomatically, Obama said. We understand the costs of any military action. If he agreed, Netanyahu said nothing about sanctions or talks with Iran, or Obamas position that there still is time to try to deter Iran peacefully. Instead, Netanyahu drew attention back to Obamas acknowledgement that Israel is a sovereign land that can protect itself how it sees t. I believe thats why you appreciate, Mr. President, that Israel must reserve the right to defend itself, Netanyahu said. Israel, he added, must remain the master of its fate. Israel has not yet decided whether to


Barack Obama meets with Israels Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Oval Ofce of the White House in Washington,D.C.
launch a unilateral strike on Iran, a point underscored in the White House meetings. Across days of comments, speeches and interviews, Obama and Netanyahu left no doubt about where they stand on Iran. Far less clear is whether they have done anything to alter each others position in what has become a moment of reckoning over Iran, and an important foreign policy issue in the U.S. presidential race. Both are adamant Iran must not develop a nuclear bomb. Obamas aim is to keep Israel from launching an attack on Irans nuclear facilities, fearing that would do little lasting good toward the goal and engulf the region and the United States in another war. Senior Obama administration ofcials said the talks at the White House left the two sides

closer than they were a week ago. The Israelis walked away with prominent statements from Obama that he would not stand for containing a nuclear-armed Iran, and that the crisis was in the United States interests to solve. In turn, Israelis did acknowledge privately they would prefer a diplomatic solution, despite enormous skepticism of the Iranian government, ofcials said. And there were no demands that Obama set a new red line of what it would take for a U.S. strike the U.S. position remains that Iran must not get a nuclear weapon. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private conversations. Netanyahu emphasized that Israel must defend itself from an Iranian nuclear threat. He said after his talks with Obama: I think I was listened to and understood. The last time the two men met in the Oval Ofce, in May, Netanyahu lectured Obama in front of reporters as differences over Mideast peace unfolded. This time, their body language as they spoke was not so glaring but still telling: Obama addressed the media; Netanyahu spoke directly to Obama and locked on him. Both leaders see a nuclear-armed Iran as a nightmare that could threaten Israels survival and potentially allow terrorists to grab unthinkably deadly power. Their difference is not over whether force may be needed Obama has been specic on his willingness to use it but whether the time for such a drastic step is nearing.

Super Tuesday showdown: Romney-Santorums big day

Incumbents square off in 11 primaries
By Andrew Miga

By Davis Espo

WASHINGTON Veteran Democratic Reps. Dennis Kucinich and Marcy Kaptur have been friends for years, but their bruising Ohio primary ght has been anything but friendly. The Kucinich-Kaptur showdown to be decided on Super Tuesday kicks off 11 primary contests in the coming months that are expected to pit House incumbents against each other due to redistricting in states including Pennsylvania, New Jersey and California. Seven races involve Democrats. Four contests have Republicans squaring off. Such intraparty ghts, often forcing longtime colleagues to battle for their political survival, can strain friendships and take some nasty turns. In New Jersey, the longtime friendship between liberal Democratic Reps. Steve Rothman and Bill Pascrell Jr., who have served together for 15 years, has already frayed. Redistricting threw Rothman into a newly congured GOP-leaning district with con-

servative Republican Scott Garrett in the northern part of the state. Rothman opted to run against Pascrell in a June 5 primary in Pascrells newly congured district, which is largely Democratic. Pascrell fumed. With friends like this I dont need enemies, Pascrell said of Rothman in a recent telephone interview with the Associated Press. Hes apparently not willing to put his dukes up against Mr. Garrett, so he chose to run against his quote-unquote friend ... I never backed off a ght in my life. He better not be expecting me to walk away from this one. Districts are redrawn every 10 years to reect population changes in the new census. Whichever party controls a state legislature typically sets redistricting so that incumbents in the majority party are protected and minority party seats are put at risk. Some states, including California, rely on independent or bipartisan panels for redistricting. Ohio Republicans who redrew the congressional boundaries put Kucinich and Kaptur together in a district running along the Lake Erie shoreline from Cleveland to Toledo thats heavily tilted toward Democrats.

WASHINGTON On the eve of their Super Tuesday showdown, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum strained for an edge in Ohio on Monday and braced for the 10 primaries and caucuses likely to redene the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Newt Gingrich, though winless for more than a month, campaigned in Tennessee and issued a stream of signals that he intended to stay in the race. In a race marked by unpredictability, Romneys superior organization and the support of an especially deep-pocketed super PAC allowed him to compete all across the Super Tuesday landscape and potentially pick up more than half of the 419 delegates at stake. Santorum cast the race in biblical terms, his David vs. Romneys Goliath. Even that is probably a little bit of an understatement, he added.

By contrast, Romney projected confidence. I hope that I get the support of people here in Ohio tomorrow, and in other states across the country. I believe if I do, Ill get the nomination, he said. Primaries in Ohio, Georgia, Massachusetts, Mitt Romney Vermont, Virginia, Oklahoma and Tennessee plus caucuses in Idaho, North Dakota and Alaska make Tuesday the busiest day of the primary season. Unlike previous Republican campaigns, when a primary winner would typically win all of Rick Santorum a states delegates, allocations this year generally reect the split in the popular vote.

Maurice Kenneth Hamilton
Maurice Kenneth Hamilton, born April 30, 1923, died Feb. 22, 2012 at the age of 88 at Mills Peninsula Hospital near his home in San Bruno after a short illness. Maury was surrounded by the singing of his family to join his late wife (Phyllis Margaret Hamilton) of 65 years. Highlights of his life: USAAF fighter pilot (and trainer) during Word War II, attorney at law (San Bruno private practice and San Mateo city attorney), and mayor and councilman of San Bruno from 1960-72. He also served on many state and Bay Area boards and committees. He continued attorney services for longtime friends and clients until his death, and remained active in the Air Force Reserve. Maury was a highly intelligent man of many talents, was very athletic and enjoyed sports. His favorites were basketball and track. He held track records in North Dakota for many years and played basketball into his 70s. He had a love of outdoors that he shared with his family through their many road trips in the United States. His children and grandchildren will always remember his adventurous spirit, love of fishing, skiing, snappy dress and pipe in mouth while dancing a little jig. Maury will be remembered as a loving, kind and generous leader of his family and all who knew him. His memorial service will be held March 10, 2012, in Merced with a military guard presentation honoring his lifetime service to his country.

Riot police break up anti-Putin protest

MOSCOW An attempt by Vladimir Putins foes to protest his presidential election victory by occupying a Moscow square ended Monday with riot police quickly dispersing and detaining hundreds of demonstrators a stark reminder of the challenges faced by Russias opposition. The harsh crackdown could fuel opposition anger and bring even bigger protests of Putins 12 years in power and election to another six, but it also underlined the authorities readiness to use force to crush such demonstrations. The rally marked a change of tactics for the opposition, which has been looking for ways to maintain the momentum of its demonstrations that flared in December. Alexei Navalny, a popular blogger and one of the most charismatic protest leaders, was the rst to suggest that supporters remain on Moscows streets and squares to turn up the heat on Putin. For Putin, the opposition move raised the specter of the 2004 Orange Revolution in Ukraine, where demonstrators camped on Kievs main square in massive protests that forced ofcials to throw out a fraud-tainted election vic-

tory by the Kremlin-backed candidate. The governments response Monday night was fast and decisive. Lines of ofcers in full riot gear marched into treelined Pushkin Square and forced protesters into waiting police buses. About 250 people were detained around the city, police said. The crackdown followed a rally that drew about 20,000 people angry over an election campaign slanted in Putins favor and reports of widespread violations in Sundays voting. Putin commands the loyalty of police and the military, whose wages were recently doubled. Following Mondays massive show of force, the urban middle-class forming the core of the protests could be more reluctant to attend future demonstrations.

Talks bog down on U.S.-Afghanistan agreement

By Deb Riechmann and Rahim Faiez

KABUL, Afghanistan Negotiations over a long-term U.S. military presence in Afghanistan have bogged down over issues of detainees, night raids and quarrels within the Afghan presidents inner circle, throwing the whole deal into question.

The arrangement would formalize a U.S. role after NATOs planned pullout in 2014. The deadlock reects growing hostility on the part of the Afghan leadership and increasing exasperation in Washington. Trust has eroded in recent days with anti-American protests over Quran burnings at a U.S. base, a rising number of U.S. troops gunned down by Afghan security forces and election-year

demands to bring the troops home. Karzai met Monday evening with U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker, but a Karzai spokesman did not return phone calls requesting details about their talks. Karzai has scheduled a news conference on Tuesday; it is unclear whether he will discuss the negotiations. U.S. Embassy spokesman Gavin Sundwall would not disclose any information about the meeting.

More than 140 dead in al-Qaida attack on Yemen army

By Ahmed Al-haj

SANAA, Yemen Sneaking across the desert behind army lines, al-Qaida militants launched a surprise attack against military bases in south Yemen, killing 107 soldiers and capturing heavy weapons they later used to kill more

troops, ofcials said on Monday. The military ofcials said at least 32 of the militants were killed in Sundays ghting in Abyan province, and scores were wounded on both sides. Medical ofcials in the area conrmed the death toll gures. They said the poor services in local hospitals accounted for the death of many soldiers who suffered serious

wounds but could have survived had they been given better medical care. The death toll among the troops is believed to be the highest on record in battles fought by the army against alQaida militants, who have been emboldened by the political turmoil roiling the impoverished Arab nation for more than a year.


local businesses that depend on tourism. Republicans claim our governor is trying to scare us into paying more taxes by threatening our parks. This could be true, but the only reason state parks are being threatened is because people are rejecting Browns other alternative, which is to raise income taxes on the rich and sales taxes. What it comes down to is we, California residents, have brought this state park closure plan upon ourselves by failing to properly support the 60 targeted parks with taxes. The parks chosen for closure are the ones that have the least attendance, historical signicance and revenue out of Californias 278 parks. This means that we also need to demonstrate the importance of these parks even more than we already do because we are the ones who dene these parks, and only we can change their signicance. As a California resident who lives near several of the targeted state parks, I feel that I too have failed to fully appreciate them. Over Christmas break, I visited the state park China Camp, a former Chinese shrimp-shing village on the shore of San Pablo Bay. Its marvelous salt marshes, meadows and oak tree habitats are all at risk because of state

California state parks are at risk

By Annie Zell

f a California resident is complaining about Gov. Jerry Browns tax increase plans, tell them to move to Alabama, which has less taxes and fewer state parks to take care of compared to California. Those who dont want to pay taxes either do not understand the price of maintaining one of the most beautiful places in the world, or they simply dont care about nature and would be just as happy living in a cemented jungle or an empty corneld. California currently has more than 250 state parks, which means its residents need to devote a bit more money and effort compared to other states. Brown is threatening to close 60 state parks as a part of his budget cuts and claims the closure would save $22 million in two years. However, if this plan is carried out it would layoff 20 percent of state park rangers and lifeguards, which would signicantly decrease the safety and protection of closed-down parks. It would also make it easier for the state to close other parks in the future and decrease the revenue for certain

Guest perspective
park closures. When I was there, I immediately knew why it was one of the 60 parks because it was practically deserted. It was disheartening to see such an extraordinary place so underappreciated. This experience proved to me that we all need to take action and bring these state parks back to life again. We cannot let the state ush parks down the drain every time they are short on money. We have until July 1, the day the parks are supposed to close, to redene what these 60 parks really mean to us and our future. Vote to raise taxes because it is our responsibility to make sure California has enough money to preserve these parks for our children and grandchildren.

Letters to the editor

Eliminate wasteful spending and programs
Editor, I just read an article which again asked for the repeal of Proposition 13 either in part or totally. Proposition 13 came into being because elected ofcials in California refused to stop their excessive spending which cost retired people their homes and other hereditary properties that people wanted to pass on to their children. Today, politicians still refuse to curb their excessive spending habits which is proven by the monstrous debt which our politicians refuse to address in a responsible manner. Their only answer to anything is to raise taxes and do away with Proposition 13 and if we gave them what they want they would still refuse to pay off the debt. As a former teacher, I know that there is ample room to cut waste in every area of government. Before we increase our taxes, we need to create a nancial grand jury to look into every area of government to see where we can reduce or eliminate wasteful spending and unnecessary programs or departments. Eliminations of these wasteful and unnecessary areas in our government will make it more efcient and responsive to the electorate. We do not serve the California Legislature they are to serve us efciently. This they do not nor have they for years. Once we eliminate wasteful programs or departments, then we can consider raising or reducing taxes. A small lake in my Ohio hometown had a big goose problem on their islands for years (City cries fowl over geese in the March 5 edition of the Daily Journal). They tried dogs, trapping, disturbing and many other approaches, all with minimal success. Then they removed the grass. That solved the problem in short order. The geese no longer had a ready source of food so they got out of Dodge. We live in a desert, and we are in denial about our lack of water. Lose the grass guys, its a two-fer, we need to live within our water means and the geese will leave too. ue to treat him with deference and kid gloves.

The conservative religion

Editor, When conservatives think they have won an argument by comparing liberals to communists, they are promoting a myth. Liberals dont want to destroy capitalism. They just want all Americans to share its benets. Sharing the wealth is evidently not a conservative belief. This country prospered when there was greater economic equality. There were more consumers for more products. What could be wrong with that? I think its really ironic that conservative businessmen are proting by selling Chinese communist-made goods to American consumers. Another irony: why do conservative politicians argue against supporting American auto manufacturers? Is it because foreign automotive companies have plants in their states? How patriotic is that? As Ted Rudow III mentioned in his letter Taking responsibility in the Feb. 18 edition of the Daily Journal, conservatism has become a religion which is based on a number of faith-based beliefs. To be truthful and logical, a conservative must face reality, which conicts with their beliefs.

Where is the outrage?

Editor, Why is there no public outrage in San Mateo County over the William Ayres child molestation charges when similar charges in Pennsylvania brought rapid public outcries from the whole country? Do we value football more than the lives of young boys? Sandusky, unlike Ayres as a doctor, did not take an oath to do no harm, and boys were not sent to him for psychiatric treatment. Ayres attorney is now using dementia as an excuse for his being unt to stand trial or remain in custody at Napa State Mental Hospital for ongoing evaluation. If the County had acted on complaints led in the 80s and ceased sending referrals to Ayres, some 40+ young men would not still be seeking justice, to say nothing of the three victims who are now dead and will never have justice. Let us hope the county court will follow Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidottis statement that Ayres belongs locked up and not contin-

appy Birthday to a true original. Oreo, you dont look a day over 99. But today marks your 100th year as a snack time staple, outlasting Hydrox cookies and transfat lawsuits not to mention the Titanic. Guess only one thing dating from 1912 could be called unsinkable. All this longevity means countless generations have begged the same timeless question: How do you eat your one and only creamy, crunchy, chocolate O-R-EO? The Oreo question draws a line of demarcation wider than a milk mustache, sort of like a sugar-based religion in which everybody knows their mode is the real way and everybody else was obviously raised in dessert heathen households without adequate teachings on the proper way of eating. There are the dippers, the twisters, the lickers, the scrapers, those who pull apart several and rebuild the cream into one massive middle, those who nimbly attempt to peel the cream off in one perfect circle, those who carve designs in the frosting like some kind of wafer world crop circle and the weirdest of all those who simply bite directly into the three layers as if it were any other ordinary cookie. Then there are those who go double stuff, triple stuff, chocolate covered, inside out, mini, big, footballshaped, peanut butter-lled or dear lord deep fried. Although the commercials always tout milk, some prefer coffee or nothing at all in hopes of preventing a soggy cookie meltdown or layer of oating crumbs in their cup. Sometimes the Oreo is a bit player in a bigger sugar high like an ice cream cake or McFlurry. And sometimes, as with this centenarian milestone, the company tosses out limited-edition versions with sprinkles in the lling. Sufce to say, there may be as many varieties of cookie as there are methods of consumption. One coworker doesnt care much for the creamy center (and I will admit, too, its not my favorite part) so she scrapes it all out and passes it on to her husband. No word yet on if she leaves the lling on a butter knife or simply slingshots the pile over while devouring the remaining chocolate wafers. Another prefers a dip into milk although he said the icy cold sensation is not a prerequisite. The key, he said, is using a cup large enough to t cookie-clenched ngers into the liquid. A soup bowl or margarita glass might be best, frankly, depending on ones st size. However, there may be another solution to this dilemma. A commentator suggested sticking the cookie on a fork, sliding the tines into the cream so it resembles sort of cookie-esque lollipop. Dip directly into glass. The entire cookie gets soaked including that Achilles heel piece on the edge that would otherwise not. Fingers stay dry and the run-of-the-mill afternoon treat gets turned into something a little more upscale. Dare we call this approach, in the honor of Oreos parent company, Kraft-y?? Then again, when have cookies, particularly Oreos, ever been about upscale? Oreos are about wide appeal and wide availability. Not everybody gets, or maybe even wants, a piping hot chocolate chip cookie straight out of the oven but ripping open the plastic on an Oreo package takes little time or training. And on a day when the world is standing on ones last nerve or the only available option is a vending machine, the Oreo is a great fall-back friend. Of course, that then begs another question how to best open the package? With Oreos, as with life, nothing is ever cookie cutter.

aluminum maker, fell 3.6 percent. The Dow fell as much as 93 points in the morning before recouping some of that loss in the afternoon. Some market strategists said it was an overreaction to read too much into Chinas projection. China is still a driver of global growth, even at its slightly reduced pace, said Richard Cripps, chief market strategist at Stifel Nicolaus. The growth rate is still far better than the U.S. and Europe. The Standard & Poors 500 dropped 5.30 points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,364.33. The Nasdaq composite index fell 25.71 points, or 0.9 percent, to 2,950.48. The technology-heavy Nasdaq index fell slightly more than the other indexes as its star stocks Apple fell 2.2 percent and Google fell close to 1.1 percent. Also weighing on the market were worries that not enough private investors will participate in a bond swap in Greece and accept bonds of lower face value and lower returns. Trying to reassure world markets, a group representing a dozen banks, insurers and investment funds that hold Greek government bonds said they will participate in the swap by the Thursday night deadline. Greece needs private investors to sign on before it gets a second international bailout worth $172 billion.

The Dow Jones industrial average closed the day down 14.76 points to 12,962.81, or down 0.1 percent. The Dow closed above 13,000 last week for the rst time since May 2008. Monday was the 45th consecutive trading day without a loss of 100 points or more for the Dow. The last streak longer than that was 93 trading days from July 17 to Nov. 24, 2006. Much of the pessimism in the market stemmed from Chinas premier, Wen Jiabao, lowering Chinas target rate for economic growth to 7.5 percent from 8 percent, where it has stood for years. Thats a negative sign because growth in China has been a key factor shoring up the global economy since the nancial crisis of 2008. The news sent steel company stocks sharply lower. Half of the worlds steel is consumed in China. AK Steel Holding Corp. lost 6 percent, while US Steel fell 4.7 percent. The lower projection for Chinese growth also hurt stocks of U.S. materials companies that depend on China for prots. Caterpillar, which makes heavy equipment, fell 2.1 percent. Alcoa, the

Job creation driving highway bills

By Joan Lowy

WASHINGTON The lure of roads, bridges, buses and trains isnt enough anymore to drive an expensive transportation bill through Congress. So to round up votes, congressional leaders are pitching the bills as the hottest thing around these days: job generators. But do they really create more jobs? The answer from a lot of economists is not really. The bills would simply shift spending that was creating jobs elsewhere in the economy to transportation industries. That means different jobs, but not necessarily additional ones. Investments in transportation infrastructure, if well designed, should be viewed as investments in future produc-

tivity growth, said Alice Rivlin, a former director of the White House Ofce of Management and Budget under President Bill Clinton. If they speed the delivery of goods and people, they will certainly do that, she said. They will also create jobs, but not necessarily more jobs than the same money spent in other ways. Indeed, the question of job creation is relatively unimportant when compared to other signicant economic benets of maintaining and improving the nations aging transportation system, such as enabling people to get to work and businesses to speedily move goods, say economists and transportation experts. But that hasnt diminished the jobs claims being made on Capitol Hill. This legislation would put 2 million

middle-class Americans back to work right away, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Thursday, as he fumed about nearly 100 amendments that have delayed action on the Senates version of the transportation bill. Although our economy has gained momentum, there are still millions of Americans out of work. So it should be obvious why we cant afford to delay efforts to rebuild our roadways, railways and bridges, he explained. In the House, Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, made a transportation bill the election-year centerpiece of the GOPs jobs agenda last fall when he unveiled its broad outlines. To make sure nobody missed the point, the bill was dubbed the American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act of 2012.

Overhead bins get bigger to fit more carry-on bags

By Joshua Freed

MINNEAPOLIS Fliers can stop sharpening their elbows. Overhead bins are getting bigger. Packed planes and a high volume of carry-ons are forcing airlines to expand the space above passengers heads. United and Delta are the latest airlines to replace or upgrade bins so they hold more luggage. And engineers at Boeing are designing jet interiors with todays bulkier luggage in mind. Its a chance to placate passengers who feel like theyre thrown into a roller

derby every time they board a plane. Because of fees on checked bags, more passengers are bringing carry-ons, which are growing in size. And with planes more crowded than ever, bins ll up before everyone has reached their seat. Travelers ght physics and one another to shove one more bag overhead. Or theyre forced to check luggage at the gate. The result is upset travelers, harried ight attendants and delays. The percentage of passengers bringing bags on board has hovered around 87 percent in recent years, United Continental says. And the size of the

carry-on has increased ... They are stretching the limits of their bags, says Scott OLeary, managing director of customer solutions at United Continental Holdings Inc. Expanding bins is a smart way for airlines to set themselves apart, says Henry Harteveldt, who leads airline and travel analysis at Atmosphere Research Group, a market research rm. Especially if they cater to the business traveler, theyre hoping it will give them a small but noticeable competitive advantage. Business travelers, for example, avoid an airline that doesnt have room for their carry-ons. Varian makes equipment and software used to treat cancer.

CCS final provides Goal of the Year

By Julio Lara

The nal whistle has blown on yet another season of high school soccer. And what a season it was the county claimed three Central Coast Section titles, with the San Mateo boys, plus the Menlo and Aragon girls adding a trophy to their glass cases. In the Dons case, you cant help but feel great about the co-championship with Archbishop Mitty, but perhaps more so for a couple of the girls who got their chance to play in a CCS title game.

In case you missed it, about a month ago, Cal-Hi Sports Bay Area ran a feature on Aragon defender Marissa Bonglio, who two years ago, when the Dons faced Presentation in the CCS nals, sat out because of WPW Syndrome. WPW, or Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, is caused by the presence of an abnormal accessory electrical conduction pathway between the atria and the ventricles in the heart. Electrical signals traveling down this abnormal pathway may stimulate the ventricles to contract prematurely, resulting in a specic type of supraventricular tachycardia referred to as an atrioventricular reentrant

tachycardia. It may sound complicated, but basically, Bonglio blacked out after a game against Hillsdale and was told by doctors she couldnt lace them up anymore. Her subsequent surgery (a day before her 16th birthday no less) forced her out of the Dons run to their rst ever CCS title. Two years later, Bonglios heart was beating abnormally for a different reason as she realized her dream of being a CCS champion. This was so special for me, Bonglio said after Aragons 2-2 tie last Saturday. It felt so

WASHINGTON Monta Ellis scored 25 points and Klay Thompson added 18 to lead the Golden State Warriors in a 120-100 rout of the Washington Wizards on Monday night. David Lee had 13 points and 10 rebounds for Golden State, which had six players in double gures. Ellis was 10 for 16 from the oor and didnt play at all in the fourth quarter as Monta Ellis both teams rested their starters. The Warriors ended their six-game road trip with a 3-3 record.

ou often hear the quote: It was a total team win. Or this one: We did the little things right. What, exactly, do those clichs mean? Why was it a team win? What are the little things? The answers were on display last week during the Central Coast Section basketball and soccer tournaments. The simple answer is this: when everyone ll their roles, it give the team a chance to win. Its making the extra pass or battling for a rebound, cutting off an opponents path or lling in for injured teammates. Those are the things necessary to win. It doesnt always happen, but without the little things, its hard for a team to win. For the Sacred Heart Prep boys basketball

Ronnie Lott not surprised by bounties

team, which captured its third straight CCS Division IV title and its fourth in ve years, winning as a team is seeing senior point guard Matt McNamara coming off the bench. McNamara could be countys ultimate sixth man. The starter at the beginning of the season, he injured his thumb and returned from that only to suffer a stress fracture in his leg early in the West Bay Athletic League season. Kevin Donahoe

stepped in and helped guide the Gators to a second-place nish in league play. When McNamara was ready to return for CCS, he accepted a role coming off the bench, realizing Donahoe was doing a good job and McNamara was willing to ll a role. He supplied steady leadership to the Gators second unit and added a little repower as well. He was, by far, our biggest leader. When he went down, it shook us a little, said SHP coach Tony Martinelli. Getting him back (for CCS) means a lot. It was McNamaras 3-pointer just before the halftime horn to put the Gators up that swung momentum in their favor going into the second half.

To Hall of Fame defensive back Ronnie Lott, the thousands of dollars New Orleans Saints players were paid under their bounty system from 2009-11 is not all that different from the helmet stickers handed out at lower levels of the game. Little rewards for big plays are as much a part of football as runs and passes. I never played the Ronnie Lott game to take away somebodys livelihood. Have I hurt people? Yes. I got paid to make interceptions. I got paid to cause fumbles. And I got paid to make big hits, said Lott, who was with the 49ers, Raiders and Jets during his NFL career from 1981-94.

game. I am very grateful for the amazing response I have received from the community for my youth academy, Alexandre said in a press release. My goal is to give kids in Verrettes a positive environment to both play soccer and get an education. The children in my hometown have overcome great adversity in their young lives and I want to be able to give back what I can. Along with his father, Alexandre has established the base for a youth academy that would provide education as well as an organized soccer team to a group of 7-year-olds. The 25-year-old Haitian national team product joined the Earthquakes via trade from Real Salt Lake on Dec. 1, 2011 in exchange for a 2012 MLS Supplemental Draft pick. The Earthquakes have also Sometimes, doing the little things dont result in a win, but it gives a good look at what the future might bring. And despite losing some major talent after this season, the Terra Nova girls basketball team should be in good shape for the next couple of years. With the Tigers starters struggling in the CCS title game against Sacred Heart Cathedral Saturday afternoon, Terra Nova got help from a trio off the bench, which helped keep the Tigers in the game. Junior Lynette Mackey came up with six rebounds and four points. Sophomore guard Mailiyah Alapati did an excellent job handling the point guard chores, pushing the ball condently against token pressure and running the offense. She also went 4 for 4 from the line and had five rebounds. Junior Autumn Ragler had two rebounds, but did an excellent job defensively. A big girl, Ragler is surprising quick and light on her feet as she continually denied penetration by the SHC guards. Ragler was beating them to both the baseannounced upgrades to the fan experience at Buck Shaw Stadium heading into the season opener including signs around the stadium recognizing the clubs history, six additional gourmet good trucks, a better beer selection and upgraded bleachers on the West Side. We are constantly trying to improve the overall fan experience at our home venue, said Earthquakes President Dave Kaval in a press release. Among the changes in store for fans when the Earthquakes host the New England Revolution will be a decorative touch that connects the franchise to its illustrious history. Along with a revamped George Best Gate, the stadium will be draped with a multitude of banners showing current Earthquakes players. Along with the present will come a trip to the past with a photographic timeline and key. More importantly, all three provided some sorely needed energy. Since Alapati, Mackey and Ragler should all be returning next season, Terra Nova fans got a glimpse of 2012-13 team. line that wraps around the top of the East Side. The graphic will include images starting with the 1974 NASL Earthquakes while continuing on their 2010 MLS Cup Playoff run. Fans will also be able to enjoy a more diverse selection of cuisine with a total of 10 gourmet food trucks in the stadium, the best beer selection in club history and a bolstered concessions menu. Among the food trucks that will drop appear at Buck Shaw Stadium in 2012 are: El Tonayense, BBQ Kalbi, Twisted Chill, Grill Stars, Pizza Pimps, O Mi Ninja, Grillaz Gone Wild, Chairman Bao Bun, Sams ChowderMobile and IZ IT. Along with the increased diversity in food offerings comes a boosted beer menu that includes: Sierra Nevada (Pale Ale, Torpedo, seasonal), Boddingtons, Stella Artois, both have first-round byes and wont have to play until Saturday. The Gators earned the No. 3 seed behind No. 1 Salesian, the odds-on favorite to advance to the state title game, and No. 2 Modesto Christian. Half Moon Bay (23-6) earned the No. 8 seed in DIV and will host No. 9 Calaveras (19-9) at 7 p.m. Wednesday. It validated coach Rich Forslunds declaration Friday after losing to Sacred Heart Prep: For our season, we deserve a home game (in the Nor Cal tournament). Serra (23-6), which lost to Mitty in the CCS Division II title game for the third straight time, earned the No. 3 seed. They have a daunting task to reach the title game with No. 1 Mitty and No. 2 Newark Memorial ahead of them and the Padres needing to beat both to get to the state nals. Tough, but not impossible. The seeding committee denitely paid El Camino (25-5) some muchearned respect.

The Earthquakes ripped out the old grandstand on the West Side and upgraded the bleachers with new seats and enhanced sightlines while also improving access to the seating area and upgrading the ADA section. The North and South ends saw renovations of a different nature to improve fan safety. The South End is now adorned with a permanent netting to help prevent stray balls from striking fans walking behind the scoreboard while the North End will feature a temporary netting that will be raised only during team warmups. 8). El Camino had some big wins over legit teams this season. The Colts beat Burlingame three times this season, beat St. Ignatius twice including the CCS seminals, and also downed St. Francis. Their two most signicant losses came to East Bay, Division I power Deer Valley and to the Irish in the DIV nal Saturday. The Terra Nova girls earned the No. 4 spot in the DIII tournament and have as good a chance as any to do something special. Top-seeded Bishop ODowd-Oakland is the heavy favorite to win the state title, but Terra Nova was competitive with the Dragons West Coast Jamboree in January. They also lost to Berkeley by six points in that same tournament. The Yellowjackets are considered the best Division I school in Northern California. Five of the six Tigers losses came against eventual section champs: ODowd (DIII-NCS), Berkeley (DINCS), Eastside College Prep (DVCCS) and Sacred Heart Cathedral (DIII-CCS). The Tigers (23-6) have a rstround bye and will face the No. 8 Paradise/ No. 9 Christian BrothersSacramento winner 7 p.m. Saturday.

Said senior forward Cole McConnell: That was a really big shot. The San Mateo boys soccer team had to rely on the help of its bench to clinch a share of the CCS Division II championship when the Bearcats battled to a scoreless draw with Willow Glen. In a tough, physical game, two key Bearcats Angel Mejia and Benny Angeles, the duo that hooked up for the game winner in the seminals were in and out of the second half with various foot and ankle issues. In came Tyler Mucchi on defense and Marco Amarillas on offense. Both calmly manned their positions and gave coach Chuck Callaghan several quality minutes, allowing Mejia and Angeles to work out the kinks and get back in the game.

San Mateo County had ve teams playing for a CCS basketball title Friday and Saturday and only Sacred Heart Prep managed come home with the rst-place trophy in the Division IV nal. The Serra boys lost the DI nal, El Camino fell in the DIII title game and Half Moon Bay lost to the Gators in DIV. On the girls side, Terra Nova came up short in its quest of the DIII championship. Apparently, the Northern California tournament seeding committee didnt hold the losses against that quartet, as all ve squads earn a home game for the Nor Cal tournament this week.

But Brees is in line to earn well over the $14.4 million base salary for a nonDrew Brees exclusive tag because his 2012 salary will be based on the average of the five highest-paid players at the position as of April 20. For players given the non-exclusive tag, the new salary is based on the ve highest-paid players at their position in 2011. year long was Shannon Lacy. It was behind (or perhaps more ttingly, in front of) her efforts that Menlo allowed zero shots in the CCS Division III seminal game against No. 1 Scotts Valley and only three against the second-seeded Cardinals in the championship. Menlo gave up no goals in its nal two games two of its 11 shutouts for the season. Lacy, a three-time All-Leaguer in the WBAL and Knights co-captain, also scored a penalty kick in a shootout against Castilleja in the CCS quarternals. And while were on the topic of goals, with no more balls ofcially nding their way to the back of opposing nets, its time to award the unofcial Goal of the Year. First, a couple of nalists: Lily Discher (Sequoia) In the waning moments of Sequoias rst league matchup with eventual division champion Hillsdale, Discher stepped up to take a direct free kick about 25 yards out to the right of the Knights penalty box. The Cherokees forward struck the ball true and found the upper 90 to the keepers left. The strike was a lethal display of nesse and precision. Along the same vein, Aragons Lexie Rogers gets a nod for her 38yard marvel of a blast that gave the Dons a 3-0 win against Woodside in the regular seasons rst week. Kayla Coleman (Hillsdale) You know a goal is good when your head coach tells the press at the end Naturally, the average salary for quarterbacks increases every year. The other 20 players could move to new teams, but compensation would be two rst-round draft choices. All-Pro receiver Welker was tagged by New England and Bowe by Kansas City. Welker, who led the league with 122 receptions, and Bowe will earn about $9.5 million in 2012 if they dont reach new, longer deals with their teams. Wes Welker is a remarkable football player for our team and has been a vital component to our offense and special teams since we traded for him in 2007, the Patriots said in a statement. Utilizing the franchise designation allows both sides more time to try to reach an agreement, of the game that sometimes she has to ask herself if shes watching a high school soccer game. And thats what Coleman had head coach Samia Shoman doing following her goal in the return game of the Knights-Cherokees series. In the 65th minute, Hillsdale Marissa Musso earned a foul to the right side of the Sequoia penalty box. Up stepped sophomore Aleja Cretcher, who on the restart, crossed a ball to the back post of the Sequoia goal. Out of nowhere, Coleman ew in and struck on a perfectly-timed volley that rocked the ball into the back of Sequoias net. The goal was the only one of the game and gave Hillsdale an express pass toward an Ocean Division title. Luckily for PAL fans, Cretcher and Coleman will wear Knight uniforms for two more seasons. GOAL OF THE YEAR Angela Knowles (Aragon) Leave it the soccer gods to save the best goal of the year for last. Knowles goal against Mitty in the CCS Division II championship is the Goal of the Year for a number of reasons. One, the timing the goal came in the 100th minute of overtime after a physical contest against No. 1 seed Mitty and the scored tied 1-1. Two, the opponent Mitty came into Saturdays championship ranked No. 5 in the country (by which is the goal. Wes remains a contractual priority and we are hopeful that he will remain a Patriot for years to come.

Kickers headline NFL franchise deadline

By Barry Wilner

NEW YORK It pays to play a skill position in the NFL, like New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees, or receivers Wes Welker and Dwayne Bowe. It also pays to be a kicker, as ve placekickers and one punter were given franchise tags, protecting their current teams from losing them without compensation. The NFLs deadline for applying the tags was Monday afternoon, and a late urry saw 10 players added to the list. In all, 21 players were tagged. Only Brees, the 2011 AP Offensive Player of the Year, was made an exclusive franchise player,

Ravens running back Ray Rice, Bears running back Matt Forte, Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson, 49ers safety Dashon Goldson, Redskins tight end Fred Davis, Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell, Raiders safety Tyvon Branch, and Falcons cornerback Brent Grimes. Free agency begins on March 13. Houston signed star running back Arian Foster to a new ve-year deal worth up to $43.5 million, with $20.75 million guaranteed.

amazing to nally play. Its my senior year, it was a tough outcome, but we gave it our all. We did amazing. Im so proud of our team. Bonigio wasnt the only Don who came full circle on Saturday. Nicole Rodrick was sidelined two years ago as well. And Rachel Killigrew was forced to cheer on her team from the bench while battling a case of mono. It really means a lot, Killigrew said.

Its something that every high school athlete dreams about and I got to play in one and I made the most of it.

Actually, only once did an opponent score more than one goal in a game all year long; Knowles goal made that twice. Three, the pass they dont come any prettier than Kimi Petsches fantastic lob over the last Mitty defender with another draped all over her. Petsche timed the pass exquisitely. And four, the nish with the pressure of the world and a Mitty defender on her shoulder, Knowles didnt panic. Instead, No. 13 waited for the exact moment and kissed the ball over the outstretched arms of the Mitty goalkeeper with what only can be described as a ying-ninja style kick. The ball then sailed majestically, in slow motion almost, into the vicinity of the Monarchs back post before dying a triumphant death in the back of the net give the Dons a 2-1 advantage.

offered bounties while working for other teams. Goodell was not at the meeting. After the league made its investigation public Friday, Williams admitted to, and apologized for, running a bounty pool of up to $50,000 over the last three seasons, rewarding players for knocking targeted opponents out of games. The league now wants to know whether Williams who recently left the Saints to become defensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams ran a similar scheme while a head coach or assistant with the Titans, Redskins, Jaguars and Bills. Current Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander, who played under Williams in Washington, said a player could get rewarded for knocking a player out of a game with a clean hit, but only after the fact not as a pre-planned bounty. Sometimes players wrote each other checks for such plays. It wasnt always Coach Williams who paid up, Alexander said. Several players described their profession as ripe for this to happen: a violent workplace with plenty of cash floating around. Everybody knows those things have been around. Some people just unfortunately got caught with their hand in the cookie jar, said Kyle Turley, an offensive lineman from 1998-07 for the Saints, Rams and Chiefs and one of hundreds of former players who are plaintiffs in

concussion-related lawsuits against the league. It happens a lot on special teams, where they prey on those young guys the expendables as I like to call them who want some extra money or want to prove their worth so they can stick around longer. Think of it as an incentive system run amok. A lot of business firms try that sort of thing, whether its for rewarding high performance among employees or sales quotes or innovations, University of Chicago sports economist Allen Sanderson said. This isnt all that much different, other than that it involves a little more pain and suffering. Several players have said the Saints werent the only team with such a system. Others have described extra cash doled out for interceptions or fumbles or blocked kicks; that is against NFL rules, too. Turley recalled contributing to such funds himself, and described seeing an assistant coach he wouldnt say who open a briefcase and pull out wads of cash to toss to players after a victory. Every team had their deal, Turley said. Al Smith, a Houston Oilers linebacker from 1987-96, said the biggest payout he ever collected from a player-generated bonus fund was $500 or something like that for a big hit. ... It was enough to go on a good date.

It goes back to when I was 10. Somebody said that if you did one of those things, you would get a sticker on your helmet. In college, they gave you that recognition if you did well, Lott said in a telephone interview Monday. So, no. Im not really surprised by it. Nor, it seems, should anyone. The fact that guys in a football locker room would talk about and reward each other when they take one of their opponents out of the game thats not surprising at all. It probably happens from the high school level on up. This is not an odd thing. Now the cash rewards and the coach approval? That formalizes it and takes it to another level, said Jay Coakley, professor emeritus in the sociology department at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. But we shouldnt be surprised at all that the football culture would give rise to someone wanting to take another player out, even if there werent something extra on the line, Coakley added. Thats just obvious. Commissioner Roger Goodell summoned former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams to meet with NFL investigators Monday to discuss whether he also

Saints owner backing his GM and head coach


NEW ORLEANS New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson isnt backing off his support of his general manager and coach, even as his team is accused by the NFL of maintaining a bounty program to injure opponents. While Benson cooperates with NFL ofcials in their investigation of the bounty program that spanned the last three seasons, he is standing behind general m a n a g e r Mickey Loomis and head coach Sean Payton Sean Payton even though the league says they knew about the bounties. The bond between Sean and Mickey and Mr. Benson could not be stronger, a team the ofcial told The Associated Press on Monday on condition of anonymity because the investigation was still ongoing. (Benson) is 110 percent behind his guys. The NFL investigation found between 22 and 27 defensive players on the Saints, as well as former

assistant coach Gregg Williams, maintained a bounty system for inicting injuries on targeted players. Former defensive coordinator Williams has admitted to running the pool, and the NFLs investigation concluded that Loomis and Payton did nothing to prevent it, even after Benson was alerted of the pool by the NFL last year and asked Loomis to put a stop to it. The team completely understands the ramications, is taking the matter very seriously and has cooperated fully with the league, said the Saints ofcial. Mr. Benson is in constant contact with (Commissioner) Roger Goodell and his ofce, yet he remains steadfast in his support of Mickey and Sean, and his focus is on the upcoming free agency, making the team better and hosting the Super Bowl. ... We have a lot of positive things on our plate that we have to get working on. The NFLs report said the Saints maintained a bounty pool of up to $50,000 the last three seasons. Payoffs were made for inicting game-ending injuries on targeted players, including quarterbacks Brett Favre and Kurt Warner.

Laser for Toenail Fungus?

What is Toenail Fungus?
Toenail fungus is an infection by a fungal organism which slowly rots away healthy toenails. Left untreated, it can affect your healthy toenails as well as cause a skin infection better known as athletes feet. Affecting men, women and children, its often an embarrassing problem which can lead to physical pain as the infected toenails thicken making it uncomfortable to wear shoes. Infected toenails often appeared discolored, mis-shapened, thick, brittle and difcult to trim.

What Kind of Treatments are Available?

Most patients attempt to resolve their fungus problem using drugstore topical liquids and cream. But due to the location of the infection under the nail plate, topical medication cant reach the infecting organism. Combining methods have been found to be the most effective; utilizing medication, in-ofce partial nail removal if needed and advanced laser therapy.

How is the laser used?

A laser using a specic wavelength of light produces sufcient heat to destroy the fungus under the nail with minimum discomfort and without damage to the surrounding skin. The laser energy is applied via multiple treatment sessions to promote the growth of clear nail without fungal infection. Properly performed, this is a highly effective, safe treatment and improvement is usually noted in 3 to 9 months with growth of clear nails.

It was Golden States highest-scoring game since beating Toronto 138-100 on March 25, 2011. Nick Young scored 25 points, 15 in the fourth quarter, and John Wall had 20 points and 14 assists for Washington, which lost for the seventh time in eight games. The Warriors never trailed and jumped out to a big lead early. Ellis hit a running 3-pointer at the rst quarter buzzer to put Golden State ahead 41-24. The Warriors shot 71.4 percent from the eld in the quarter, and were 5 of 6 from 3-point range. It was Golden States highest-scoring quarter this season, and the most points the Wizards have allowed in a quarter. It never got better for Washington. The Warriors extended the lead, going on a 19-2 run that started late in the opening quarter and into the second to make the lead 48-24. Golden State led by as many as 25 in the second quarter before Washington started to respond. The Wizards managed a 16-5 run late in the second and cut the lead to 65-51 at halftime. The Warriors had run into problems in the second half their previous two games. Golden State scored a then season-low 36 second-half points in a 105-83 loss at Philadelphia Friday. The Warriors had an even worse showing Sunday at Toronto, scoring 28 points in the second half and losing 83-75 despite taking a nine-point halftime lead. Ellis made sure Golden State didnt have another second-half collapse, scoring 10 of the Warriors 24 points in the third quarter and ensuring Washington never built momentum for a comeback. Golden State led 89-71 at the start of the fourth quarter. Both teams looked like they were on cruise-control for the nal period with most of the starters on the bench. NOTES: Warriors G Stephen Curry (strained tendon in his right foot) had his rst signicant playing time in ve games, scoring 12 points in nine minutes.

Athletics win one, lose one


PHOENIX His rst time up to bat for the Angels, Albert Pujols hit an RBI double. So far, so good. The new Angels slugger nished 2 for 3, ending his spring debut by popping up with the bases loaded in the third inning of Los Angeles 9-1 win over an Oakland Athletics split squad Monday. That was fun, Pujols said of batting in each of the rst three innings. Hopefully we get to do that a lot this season. Left-hander C.J. Wilson, the Angels other big free-agent acquisition, also debuted. He gave up a hit and walk in two innings. Pujols agreed to a $240 million, 10-year deal over the winter, leaving the St. Louis Cardinals after 11 seasons. Now hell routinely face AL pitchers after hammering the senior circuit for more than a decade. When I made the ballclub in 01 I didnt know anyone in the National League, Pujols said. You are your own scouting report. Athletics starter Brad Peacock had to leave after getting ve outs. He was scheduled for two innings. Pujols helped him reach his pitch count early. I tried not to look at him, Peacock said. I was trying to hit my spot but left a curveball

up for him and he crushed it. Wilson, who came to California from the Texas Rangers, said he used to play fantasy baseball when he was in the minors and drafted Pujols at least once. Its kind of funny, Wilson said. He came up there and drive in the run and we all looked at each other in the dugout and said Yep, thats Albert. Thats what he does. Im happy to be in the Albert Pujols fan club. NOTES: As DH Manny Ramirez went 0for-3 and is hitless in ve plate appearances. He has seen a total of 11 pitches and had not hit a ball out of the ineld until ying out weakly to right in the sixth.

Athletics (ss) 8, Cubs 7.

MESA, Ariz. Ryan Dempster got off to a rough start last year and never recovered in one of his worst seasons with the Chicago Cubs. Nothing he can do about it now. He is focused on bouncing back this year. Dempster made his spring debut Monday and pitched two innings in Chicagos 8-7 loss to a split-squad of Oakland Athletics. The right-hander, who went 10-14 with a 4.80 ERA last season, allowed one run and two hits. Its why Ive worked really hard this winNFLs leading rusher in 2010 with 1,616 yards and ran for 1,224 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. He was due to become a restricted free agent next week, but McCartney said Foster was eager to work out a deal with the Texans. His new deal is worth up to $43.5 million, with $20.75 million guaranteed. Hell make $18 million in base salary next season, plus incentives.

ter, said Dempster, who struck out two and walked none. Anytime youve had a subpar year, you dont like it a whole lot and you want to try and do a whole lot better the next time out. You work out and do what you can to be prepared. Josh Reddick collected two more hits for Oakland, and Brandon Allen hit a sacrice y off Dempster in the second to give him eight RBIs this spring. Non-roster invitee Yordy Cabrera led off the ninth inning with a home run against righthander Tony Zych, lifting Oakland to the victory. Blake DeWitt hit a three-run homer off As starter Bartolo Colon in the second inning. Jeff Baker added two hits, including a double, and scored two runs for Chicago. Reddick is off to a fast start after coming over from Boston in the Andrew Bailey trade. He tripled in the second inning and is 5 for 8 this spring. Considering the As suddenly have a crowded outfield with the signings of Yoenis Cespedes and Manny Ramirez to go along with Jonny Gomes, Coco Crisp and Seth Smith, the hot start by Reddick can only help his chances. Thats why we are here, Reddick said. You work all offseason to be ready to go from the start. Nnemkadi Ogwumike has earned Pac-12 Player of the Year honors and co-Defensive Player of the Year recognition with Southern Californias Briana Gilbreath. The Pac-12 announced its awards Monday, as selected by a media panel. Guard Jazmine Davis of Washington was selected Freshman of the Year, while Oregon States Scott Rueck received Coach of the Year.

Japan beats U.S. womens soccer 1-0


Japan beat the U.S. womens soccer team, just like last summer. And this time, the Japanese didnt need penalty kicks. Megumi Takase scored on a 6-yard header off Aya Miyamas corner kick in the 84th minute to give the world champions a 1-0 victory Monday at Faro, Portugal, in a rematch of last years World Cup championship game. The Japanese became the rst team in more than three years to hold the Americans scoreless and advanced to a matchup against Germany in the Algarve Cup nal.

I think more than anything, it opens our eyes to areas we can improve in, American midelder Heather OReilly said. Better now that we have this experience than later during the Olympics. I think we have a lot to learn from and a lot grow from, but were trying to pull the positives out of it. The Americans, who had been seeking their third straight title and ninth overall in the annual tournament, nished second in Group B with a 2-1 record and will play Sweden in the third-place game Wednesday. The U.S. had gone 58

consecutive games without being shut out since a 0-0 tie against South Korea on Nov. 5, 2008. Japan (3-0) ended an 11-game unbeaten streak for the Americans, who hadnt lost since the Womens World Cup nal. When they met in Germany last July, the Japanese came from behind twice in a 2-2 tie, then won 3-1 on penalty kicks for their rst World Cup title. The U.S. had been 9-0-2 since, including an 8-0 record this year as the Americans outscored opponents 47-2. I think they played like the best

team in the world, U.S. coach Pia Sundhage said. They keep possession and controlled the attack. Japan scored after Amy LePeilbet, under pressure, headed the ball over her own end line. The goal was Japans only corner kick of the match and only shot of the second half. The Americans would have advanced to their 10th straight Algarve nal with a win or a tie. In the nal minutes, Megan Rapinoe was wide with a 30-yard free kick and Shannon Boxx put a 10-yard header over the goal. They took care of their one

opportunity that they really had, U.S. forward Abby Wambach said. The Japanese team is fantastic. They have so many great players. They keep such good possession that its really difcult to get a rhythm because you dont have as much possession as you normally do. The U.S. and Japan will see each other again soon they meet in an exhibition on April 1 at Sendai. Its something to think about, and to move forward with and train against, so when we go to Japan and maybe see them in the Olympics, we can fare better and play better, Wambach said.

it report for up to seven years, dragging down credit scores and driving up the cost of nancing a home. An estimated 3.4 million Americans have paid-off medical debt lingering on their credit reports, according to the Access Project, a research group funded by health care foundations and advocates of tougher laws on medical debt collectors. Among them are Nathen and Melissa Cobb of Riverton, Ill., who tried to renance their home last year. They didnt qualify for the loan because of $740 in medical bills that had been sent to a collection agency. The Cobbs were surprised because the bills nearly a dozen small copayments ranging from $6 to $280 had been paid before they tried to renance. The collection action took their credit score from good to mediocre and is likely to mar their credit report for years. Im not one of those people trying to ditch out on my bills, 34year-old Melissa Cobb said. Im really frustrated. Medical bills make up the majority of collection actions on credit reports, and most are for less than $250, according to Federal Reserve

Medical bills can wreck credit,even when paid off

By Carla K. Johnson

CHICAGO Mike and Laura Park thought their credit record was spotless. The Texas couple wanted to take advantage of low interest rates, so they put their house on the market and talked to a lender about a mortgage on a bigger home in the Dallas-Fort Worth suburbs. Their credit report contained a shocker: A $200 medical bill had been sent to a collection agency. Although since paid, it still lowered their credit scores by about 100 points, and it means theyll have to pay a discount point to get the best interest rate. Cost to them: $2,500. A growing number of Americans could encounter similar landmines when they renance or take out a loan. The Commonwealth Fund, a private foundation that sponsors health care research, estimates that 22 million Americans were contacted by collection agencies for unpaid medical bills in 2005. That increased to 30 million Americans in 2010. Surprisingly, even after the bills have been paid off, the record of the collection action can stay on a cred-

Most hospitals and physician groups use collection agencies to go after late bills after 60 or 90 days, rather than hiring more staff. It makes nancial sense to share the amounts collected with an agency.
Board research. The Parks had no idea a billing error theyd sorted out a year earlier they never actually owed the $200 could affect their credit. They didnt know the bill for a copayment on a PET scan Mike needed had been sent to a collection agency. Weve prided ourselves in having impeccable credit. We worked hard to establish that, said Laura Park, a 51-year-old ofce manager married to a 53-year-old reghter. They are going ahead with the home purchase while trying to x their credit report. Im very upset, Park said. Its going to be a nightmare and who knows how long this is going to take

to resolve. Matt Ernst, a vice president at Mortgage Lenders of America in Overland Park, Kan., said medical collections frequently turn up on credit reports. We see a ton of them, Ernst said. They have an impact on nancing, he said, but even he didnt realize how much until he learned that someone with a FICO score of 680 which is considered good, but not excellent will see their score drop up to 65 points because of a medical collection. I didnt know a medical collection would hammer it that hard, Ernst said. Our investors require a 620 to even get a loan. Its a problem for insured and uninsured alike. Outright billing mistakes, confusion over whether a claim will be paid by insurance and disputes between insurance companies and doctors all can lead to medical bills being sent to collection agencies. Congress is considering legislation the Medical Debt Responsibility Act that would require credit agencies to delete

started as a billing mistake. Her hospital told her the radiology bill would be covered because she qualied for a charity care program. But the radiology doctors ofce sent the bill to a collection agency and, despite Lindsays protests and the paperwork she kept sending, the matter ended up in court. Lindsay believed that eventually the documentation would catch up with the bill and be settled. She went to court and told a judge her story. Later, she missed a court date she said she was never informed of it and thats when the state troopers showed up. Lindsay, a 46-year-old teaching assistant from Herrin, Ill., ended up paying more than $600 because legal fees had been added to the original amount. I paid it in full so they couldnt do it to me again, Lindsay said. She recently testied at a hearing on aggressive debt collection practices in Illinois. Renancing a home loan can be affected too by unpaid medical bills or the appearance of unpaid medical bills. Iraq veteran Steve Barnes and his wife, Tara, were renancing their home through a VA program when they found out from their mortgage banker that nearly $600 in unpaid Rothaus, who oversees the San Carlos Patrol Bureau, reported 131 incidents from the Carlos Club between October 2010 and October 2011 but a breakdown shows that 69 were spot checks initiated by police and, according to Duncan, only seven were specifically alcohol-related. Rothaus did not address the commission and it did not ask him any questions before the vote. Commissioner Angela Harper-Pederson said Rothaus had made an extensive presentation at a meeting last fall and Commission Steve San Filippo said he was very clear on the issues. The Carlos Club sits at 612 El Camino Real and Duncan has said the addition of food and music will let him compete with other restaurants and bars with outside seating. In January, the Planning Commission debated for hours but held off on a decision saying it rst wanted more information on noise, walkmedical bills had brought down their credit scores. It means theyll have to pay an extra $1,700 in additional fees to the lender to get the lowest interest rate. Bills for treatment last fall related to his wifes cancer had been turned over to a collection agency while Barnes was still talking with his insurance company about what would be covered, he said. We pay our bills, said Barnes, 33, the postmaster in Nocona, Texas. As soon as they were brought to our attention, we paid them. But the collection could stay on their credit reports for seven years, even though its now paid. Debt collectors support the legislation in the House, according to ACA International, a trade association. A key foe of an earlier bill was another group representing the nations credit bureaus. The Consumer Data Industry Association, which hasnt taken a position on the revised bill, said that lenders need to see a consumers patterns of behavior over time and even paid-off medical debt is relevant to whether the consumer is a good risk. Most hospitals and physician groups use collection agencies to go after late bills after 60 or 90 days, rather than hiring more staff. It ways and the entry and exit. The panel asked for an acoustic study and specics on how noise and a greater patron capacity of up to 178 people might have on other issues like public safety. Before the commission held its discussion last night, Duncan said the ultimate goal was for them just to make a decision. He also said he felt the city so far had still found reasons for denial without substantiation. In response to the earlier queries, Duncan and his architect claried the patio would actually have a maximum seated capacity of 96. Duncan also agreed to limit his hours of operation from 4 p.m. to midnight with live music ending at 10 p.m. and to have patrons queue up inside the patio rather than the outside alleyway. At the request of the commission, Duncan paid $6,500 for an acoustic study that, under


makes nancial sense to share the amounts collected with an agency. If you dont collect anything, its worth zero, said Richard Gundling of the Healthcare Financial Management Association. Hospitals started relying on debt collectors in the 1980s, said Chicago-based health care consultant Jim Unland. When the numbers of uninsured started to grow signicantly, hospital nancial staffs had the perception they were getting overloaded with delinquent bills, Unland said. It became easier to turn these bills over to collection agencies. The Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obamas health care law, bars tax-exempt hospitals from using extraordinary collection actions until it has made reasonable efforts to determine whether a patient qualies for nancial assistance. But its still unclear how that will be interpreted and whether reporting late bills to a collection agency would be considered extraordinary, Unland said. Barnes, the Texas veteran, said he and his wife have learned something: how quickly medical bills are sent to debt collectors. It will really happen in a blink of an eye and you wont even know it. existing conditions, doesnt exceed standards but would if the front door was used as the main club entrance. Open portholes planned for the proposed patios perimeter wall would also exceed city standards from noise and live music but using clear Plexiglass would lower the volume enough, according to the study. Senior consultant Fred Smith of Ilingworth & Rodkin, Inc., the group that conducted the study, said noise measured around 67 decibels from in front of the club which is not terribly loud but it got louder of course when patrons were walking around the street. He said he once heard the club from the closest residence across the train tracks but the level was fairly low.

paid-off medical debt from credit reports within 45 days. Were not talking about somebody buying a big screen television and not having the ability to pay. This is debt incurred because of a health condition. That makes medical debt unique, said bill co-sponsor U.S. Rep. Don Manzullo, an Illinois Republican. The bill has bipartisan support in the House, said co-sponsor U.S. Rep. Heath Shuler, a North Carolina Democrat. Shuler said the health care industry sends delinquent bills to debt collectors quicker than any other industry. If it wasnt an industry that sent it straight to collections, we wouldnt be having this conversation, Shuler said. A Senate version was introduced last week. For Illinois breast cancer survivor Lisa Lindsay, a $280 medical bill led to state troopers showing up at her home and taking her to jail in handcuffs. Like the Parks in Texas, she, too, said it

Sheriffs Capt. Greg Rothaus. Im going to bring up the elephant in the room, Marsters said. While I think that youve done a great job with the design and addressing noise, I still have an issue with the safety. The question over safety has proved the biggest hurdle for Duncan who was already granted a parking exemption when Rothaus opposition arose during subsequent request for a conditional use permit. Rothaus cited the number of police-involved incidents at the club historically and said he thought encroaching into a dark alley only added to the possibility for new problem.

Advice urges wider sharing of heart care decisions

By Marilynn Marchione

A heart device might save your life but leave you miserable. That awful possibility is the reason for new advice urging doctors to talk more honestly with people who have very weak hearts and are considering pumps, pacemakers, new valves or procedures to open clogged arteries. Too often, patients with advanced heart failure dont realize what they are getting into when they agree to a treatment, and doctors assume they want everything possible done to keep them alive, says the new advice, published Monday by the American Heart Association and endorsed by other medical groups. It calls for shared decision making when patients face a chronic condition that often proves fatal and they need to gure out what they really want for their remaining days. If they also have dementia or failing kidneys, the answer may not be a heart device to prolong their lives. Patients may feel that the treatment was worse than the disease, said Dr. Larry Allen of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center, who helped draft the new advice. One of his former patients is an example: a 74-year-old man too weak to go shopping or walk around his neighborhood. He was so miserable that doctors thought he would feel better with a mini articial heart a $100,000 left ventricular assist device to make his heart pump better. Even if it goes well, people are left with an electrical cord coming out of their belly and a higher risk of stroke and bleeding from the nose or throat, Allen said. The man suffered bleeding problems, needed a breathing machine and spent 10 weeks in the hospital. He and his wife hated that his device kept him tethered to a power supply or gave him only a few hours of freedom on battery power. Some models last longer. They came to us a couple months after he went home and said his quality of life was not what he wished and asked to have the pump turned off, Allen said. The man died about a year ago. By contrast, former Vice President Dick Cheney, 71, has been living with a heart assist

device since the summer of 2010 and reports doing well for now in his recent memoir. Cheney, who had the rst of ve heart attacks at age 37, proudly shows off the long-life batteries he wears in a vest. Ive gotten used to the various contraptions that are always with me, and Im working and traveling, Ive hunted a time or two, and I have some shing planned, he wrote in his memoir released last year. More than 5 million Americans have heart failure, and the number is growing as the population ages. It occurs when a heart becomes too weak because of a heart attack, high blood pressure or other condition to pump enough blood. Fluid can back up into the lungs, causing shortness of breath, weight gain, fatigue and swollen ankles. Many high-tech treatments are available to treat advanced disease. But they usually dont slow its progression, they just keep people from dying. And that means living longer with

steadily worsening symptoms. Patients dont often understand that when they agree to gadgets like a $30,000 to $50,000 implanted debrillator, which shocks a quivering heart back into normal rhythm. Debrillators dont actually make people feel better it doesnt treat the underlying heart failure. All it does is abort sudden death, Allen said. More than 100,000 defibrillators are implanted each year in the United States, and one quarter of them are replacement operations because a battery has worn out (they last three to ve years). That often is done without reconsidering whether a patients health has deteriorated so much that the device isnt a good idea, three Harvard Medical School doctors wrote recently in the New England Journal of Medicine. The new heart association advice takes aim at this problem. It urges: An annual talk between heart failure

patients and doctors to set treatment goals for the present and for possible emergencies such as cardiac arrest. Milestone reviews after any big change such as hospitalization, a debrillator shock, worsening kidney problems or dementia. Discussing not just survival gains but also potential problems from devices or treatments, such as side effects, loss of independence, quality of life and obligations on families and caregivers. Considering palliative care, which does not mean stopping treatment. The goal is not only living long, its living well. People often make decisions about the `long without even considering the `well, said Jessie Gruman, president of the Center for Advancing Health, a patient advocacy group. The heart association asked Gruman, who has had several cancers and a heart problem, to review the advice from a patients perspective.

Limbaugh advertisers keep leaving

Rush Limbaughs mouth is taking a bite out of his wallet. Nine advertisers and a radio station in Hawaii dropped his show after he called a law student a slut and a prostitute. One of the most popular radio shows in the country on Monday lost advertisers including AOL Inc. and Tax Resolution Services Co. The tax rm helps people who have disputes with the IRS. It spends some $9 million a year on radio advertising, according to ratings rm Nielsen, and its website carries endorsement from conservative talk radio personalities Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, as well as Limbaugh himself. You dont need to ght this ght alone, Limbaugh is quoted as saying on the Tax Resolution site. His endorsement was still up on Tax Resolutions site on Monday afternoon. CEO Michael Rozbruch said the statement about dropping Limbaugh was easily issued but changing the website will require a meeting later in the week. Limbaugh apologized over the weekRush Limbaugh end for his comments about Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke after she testied to congressional Democrats that her Jesuit colleges health plan should cover her birth control. KPUA, an AM station in Hilo, Hawaii, said it is dropping Limbaughs show immediately. The statement by station owner New West said the Limbaugh incident crossed a line of decency and didnt live up to the stations standards. We are strong believers in the First Amendment and have recognized Mr. ing to be changed to perfectly match the needs of a dramatic reading or an uplifting musical ensemble. Before the spotlight can once again shine in this performing arts center, much work is still needed to be completed. While construction is under way, student performers at San Mateo High School and community groups who traditionally use the space are using other stages. Instrumental teacher Atillio Tribuzi explained three concerts were moved this year. So far, two have taken place at Burlingame High School and the most recent was relocated to the San Mateo High School Performing Arts Wing. But moving around is worth it to Tribuzi who noted the attributes of the new theater will greatly benet the instrumental program. The new PAC will have a beautiful deep new orchestra pit that will make a huge difference in sound balance for our productions, he said. Also, it will have a marvelous acoustic treatment, due to the work of the acoustic engineers. The house will be much more intimate because a balcony will be built closer to the stage than the one that exists now. Brad Friedman, co-chair of the San Mateo High School visual and performPeninsula TV. He was rst elected chief elections officer and assessor-county clerk-recorder in 1986 and his tenure was marked by updating voting systems, pushing all-mail ballots and making property value data available in real time. Slocum, who was well known for technological innovation in his last elected ofce, wants to bring the same spirit to the supervisor seat by aggressively pursuing economic development and courting high-tech, green-tech and clean-tech. He thinks the cost of a planned new jail is a very large question and wants to look at other counties for possible creative solutions to overcrowding and new facilities. Slocum generally favors district elections, although he has some problems with the current lawsuit against the county because of its at-large process, and said District Four has some distinct challenges, particularly south of Redwood City. Its like there are two San Mateo counties. There is the prosperous one It seems like all of the alleged abuses occurred within the individuals home. He had lived in the area of Woodland and Sacramento and moved to South San Francisco around 2002, South San Francisco police Detective Ken Chetcuti told reporters at a press conference yesterday. Vogt, 36, threatened some of girls with bodily harm to keep them from talking, Limbaughs right to express opinions that often times differ from our own, but it has never been our goal to allow our station to be used for personal attacks and intolerance, station owner New West said. Limbaugh joked on Monday that he got a busy signal when he called his show because of the advertisers who are abandoning it. Clear Channels Premiere Radio Networks Inc. hosts Limbaughs show. His on-air contract runs through 2016. Premiere Radio said in a statement Monday that it respects Limbaughs right to express his opinions. It said that, in an attempt at absurdist humor to illustrate his political point, Mr. Limbaugh used words that unfortunately distracted from the message he was trying to convey. The company said Limbaugh did the right thing by expressing regret for his choice of words and offering his sincere and heartfelt apology to Ms. Fluke. ing arts department, said the PACs main benefit has always been the size. Unfortunately, until now, the theater was also run down and technically out of date. For the drama department, the renovations have caused lots of movement. Guys and Dolls was performed at the Bayside Performing Arts Center. The school will perform Twelve Angry Men in May at Caada College. While the spaces are great, they arent free. Also, moving requires asking audiences to stay supportive while often moving. On campus, Friedman is using a temporary classroom and rehearsal space. For the last 20 years, Ive just about lived in the PAC, as a teacher, a director and sometimes even a performer, said Friedman. Im really looking forward to our massive redecoration, and I think the community will nd the new PAC a showcase for the neighborhood and a place theyll want to come to again and again.

the normally well-used community space will feature a three-story lobby, 1,500 seats with a balcony and state-ofthe art equipment for performances. Until then, performers at San Mateo High School are nomadically playing at other theaters, eagerly awaiting their new home. Paid for using money from Measure M, a $298 million bond passed by voters in 2006, the $24.6 million project will cost about $31 million once soft costs are factored in, said Todd Lee of Greystone West, who is overseeing the districts bond-funded construction projects. Mark Quattrocchi, principal for Quattrocchi Kwok Architects, explained the new building will be 55,000 square feet including a much larger basement for storage, a more intimate feeling theater thanks to the new balcony, and a lobby that better utilizes the large entryway. It will, of course, also include renovated rest rooms, dressing rooms, concession stands and variable acoustics which allows the acoustics of the build-

in all of it, he said. When he declined to run for re-election, then-supervisor Mark Church successfully won the ofce. Now, Church will be the one presiding over Slocums race against based on who has pulled papers so far Menlo Park Councilman Andy Cohen and Mayor Kirsten Keith; County Board of Education Trustee Memo Morantes; Shelly Masur, trustee on the Redwood City Elementary School District Board, East Palo Alto Councilman David Woods and Mayor Carlos Romero and Ernie Schmidt, Redwood City Planning Commission vice chair. The ling period ends Friday, March 9. The position is currently held by Rose Jacobs Gibson, who is being termed out. Slocums candidacy marks a possible return to public ofce following his 2010 retirement and year working at

and then the other one where people cant afford things like medical coverage. Id like to work toward helping that other one, he said. With so many individuals having announced their candidacy dating back as far as the fall, Slocum said he realizes hes getting a late start. But he believes his qualications and experience trumps the time spent in the election spot light so far. And when asked less than a day into his announcement what kind of endorsements hes netted so far, Slocum doesnt have to look too far. Maria Diaz Slocum, for one, he joked, referring to his wife. Slocum lives with Diaz, a Redwood City School District trustee, and two sons. If no one candidates receives more than 50 percent of the vote, the two top vote-getters will face off in the November election.

TUESDAY, MARCH 6, 2012 PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) If you find yourself

contending with more opposition from others than usual, its time to examine your recent behavior. Correct any defects that you find, and things will straighten out. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Take on a bad attitude and youll make your duties and assignments more complex and burdensome than they really are. Try to see your work as something fun and challenging. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Unless you avoid groups or cliques that have persons whom you truly dislike among their ranks, you can look for it to be

another problematical day. Dont open old grudges. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Hold your tongue so that you dont accidentally say anything abrasive about someone who is extremely important to your plans. She or he will hear about it and wont be likely to laugh it off. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Even when talking to someone for whom you have little respect, keep an open mind about matters that concern you. You could learn something quite valuable. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Being jealous or envious of others is always a self-defeating attitude. If you let it get the best of you, you could say something that you might deeply regret.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) In order to have your say or your way, you must first allow others to have theirs. If you fail to let them express themselves, they in turn will block your means to do so. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Dont be surprised if, when trying to pawn off some of your duties onto others, you are met with tremendous rejection, especially if you havent helped others out when they needed it in the past. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Regardless of how good you think your ideas are, if they differ either vastly or even just a little from those of your friends, its best to let the majority rule. Sometimes a groupmade decision can be the best one.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If your hull isnt

as strong as you think it is, dont rock the boat. It might prove to be extremely easy to alienate many of those whose support you need. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It could be another wasted day if you dont chart your course beforehand. Theres a likelihood that youll find yourself running around in circles due to poor or totally absent planning. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Be wary of your analysis of matters relating to money or material assets. If your judgment is impaired because of a lack of knowledge, youre likely to make more than a few gaffes. COPYRIGHT 2012 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF MARY ANNE INMAN Case Number 122059 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: Mary Anne Inman, aka Mary A. Inman, aka Mary Inman. A Petition for Probate has been filed by Laurie A. Gardiner in the Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo. The Petition of Probate requests that Laurie A. Gardiner be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedents will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection of the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: March 19, 2012 at 9:00 a.m., Dept: 28, Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo, 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA 94063. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in Probate Code section 9100. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hearing date noticed above. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Petitioner: Laurie A. Gardiner 1580 Harlan Drive Danville, CA 94526 (925)718-5717 Dated: 02/17/12 Published in the San Mateo Daily Journal on February 21, 28, March 6, 2012.
