Getting returning vets back on their feet


Shelter Network finding more need for those back from the military
By Heather Murtagh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Cheryll Catuars life changed drastically two years ago. Against the wishes of her family, she joined the National Guard, leaving behind a job in the mortgage industry. Her marriage of 13 years was ending and she became pregnant soon after. Deciding to take a break from the service and keep her daughter, Catuar quickly found herself on friends couches and nally, as a new mother, was homeless. Catuar is part of a growing number of local vets who struggle with homeless-

ness. Shelter Network, which supports local homeless with housing and programs to help them save money and get back on their feet, has seen a unique need emerge recently veterans needing help getting on their feet. When Catuar didnt know where else to turn, she went to Shelter Network and was quickly offered support. Today, the 37-year-old is on her feet. She and her 2-year-old daughter Vera have their own place in Pacica. Catuar nished training as a medical technician and is looking for work. In the meantime, shes volunteering and looking for temp jobs. She is emotional talking

about the journey because Catuar is overwhelmingly thankful. Shes thankful for the strangers who supported her, that she had an opportunity to go to school and that it can only get better from here. Knowing and realizing I could do anything as long as people believed in me, really believed in me, Catuar said, adding that helped her successfully go from homeless to on her own. I dont think I would be on the right track right now [without it]. A number of local returning veterans

Making a living off of promoting social justice is not necessarily always a protable endeavor, so the owners of Reach and Teach in San Mateo have had to come up with new ways to lure customers into their shop. Located at the Dove & Olive Works building just south of downtown San Mateo, the shop sells books, games, puzzles, toys, curriculum, music, posters, DVDs, maps and other products aimed at promoting peace and social justice learning. The shop, founded by former tech workers Derrick Kikuchi and Craig Wiesner, is now selling organic hand soap, earth-friendly dish soap and

biodegradable laundry detergent with an aim at attracting repeat customers. To purchase the soap, however, customers must BYOC or bring your own container, Kikuchi said. It is frugality meets taking care of our planet, Kikuchi said. The two have teamed with San Francisco-based Green 11, a company that sells organic beauty and non-toxic cleaning products. Tuesday, Green 11 installed a lling station for soap at the Dove & Olive Works building that customers can shop for today. For people aimed at protecting the environment, the new lling station will save them a trip to San Francisco or Palo Alto, Wiesner said. Rather than tossing container after container into the recycle bin, or worse

yet, into the landll, people will be able to stop by our shop and rell their empties, using them over and over again, Wiesner said. The soap is also made locally and is reasonably priced, he said. Along with fair-trade tea from Afghanistan and olive oil from Palestine, adding the lling station should help bring in some foot trafc into the shop, which was once an old feed store years ago located on South Boulevard in a light commercial area. We want to have things that people would come back for, Wiesner said. We are not so focused on prot but on sustainability. The company, founded in 2004,

This Day in History

1832

During the Civil War, the ironclad CSS Virginia rammed and sank the USS Cumberland and heavily damaged the USS Congress, both frigates, off Newport News, Va. In 1702, Englands Queen Anne acceded to the throne upon the death of King William III. In 1782, the Gnadenhutten massacre took place as more than 90 Indians were slain by militiamen in Ohio in retaliation for raids carried out by other Indians. In 1854, U.S. Commodore Matthew C. Perry made his second landing in Japan; within a month, he concluded a treaty with the Japanese. In 1874, the 13th president of the United States, Millard Fillmore, died in Buffalo, N.Y., at age 74. In 1917, Russias February Revolution (so called because of the Old Style calendar used by Russians at the time) began with rioting and strikes in Petrograd. The U.S. Senate voted to limit libusters by adopting the cloture rule. In 1930, the 27th president of the United States, William Howard Taft, died in Washington at age 72. In 1942, Imperial Japanese forces occupied Yangon in Burma (Myanmar) during World War II. In 1944, two days after an initial strike, U.S. heavy bombers resumed raiding Berlin during World War II. In 1960, Democrat John F. Kennedy and Republican Richard M. Nixon won the New Hampshire presidential primary. In 1965, the United States landed its rst combat troops in South Vietnam as 3,500 Marines were brought in to defend the U.S. air base at Da Nang. In 1971, Joe Frazier defeated Muhammad Ali by decision in what was billed as The Fight of the Century at Madison Square Garden in New York. Silent lm comedian Harold Lloyd died in Beverly Hills at age 77. In 1988, 17 soldiers were killed when two Army helicopters from Fort Campbell, Ky., collided in mid-ight.

New trend in home sharing may emerge


Increase predicted in senior and disabled need with care homes impending closure
By Caitlin Alyce Buckley
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

Police reports
Slick thieves
A grease recycling bin was stolen sometime in the past two months on the 1100 block of Broadway in Burlingame before 1:16 p.m. Monday, March 5.

Senior and disabled home seekers could be a brief emerging trend in the San Mateo County Housing and Investment Projects Home Sharing Program. With the impending closure of the Burlingame Long Term Care facility by the Board of Supervisors, hundreds of senior citizens and individuals on xed incomes due to disability have to nd new affordable residences, according to officials with HIP Housing. Weve already been receiving calls from social workers at the facility in anticipation that this would happen, where theyve identied some of their higher functioning residents who could live independently, said Laura Fanucchi, associate director at HIP Housing. They are going to be applying to Home Sharing. Only 25 percent of our home seekers are in fact seniors and that statistic has remained pretty steady, she said. The majority of home seekers are aged 3555 working full time, on a xed income due to disability, or working two jobs. On the other hand, more than 50 percent of home providers are seniors who cant afford their home expenses with retirement income. They use the asset of their home to provide extra income, or maybe they need help so they look for a service exchange, said Fanucchi. In a service exchange arrangement, a home provider matches with a home seeker who provides services in lieu of rent or for reduced rent. This enables seniors to live at home and independently, she said. There is a pool of clients of a younger generation who participate in Home Sharing, working full time, and sometimes two jobs. Some students participate in the program such as a young man, Antonio, a San Francisco State University student, who has lived with a senior citizen for ve years. By Home Sharing, he is able to keep his housing costs low while hes studying. HIP Housing is a great thing, Antonio said. Home Sharing is a must-have program. There should be more of it. A great deal of people are trying to work and trying to go to

school at the same time and dont have support from government or their families. This service makes it possible for us to follow our dreams. San Mateo County is one of the most expensive counties to live in around the nation, Fanucchi said. The housing costs are just astronomical, she said. Home Sharing is helpful to home providers needing to reduce their housing costs. The Home Sharing program matches people looking for housing with people who have housing. The cities really support the program as a means to create affordable housing. The Home Sharing program is most popular in San Mateo, Redwood City and Daly City. There are fewer clients in towns like Hillsborough and Atherton. The Home Sharing program may see a notable increase of senior home seekers, but Fanucchi said the program consistently sees increases of clients, both homeowners or renters and home seekers. Rents are climbing. When rent is beyond a renters means, they will look to share that rent. Likewise, homeowners are struggling with their housing costs because of loss of job, loss of income or health issues that impact their housing cost. Typically we have three to four people seeking housing to every one person providing, said Fanucchi. Im feeling that there is going to be an increase in the number of people providing housing. Providers are typically single, couples or small families. Seekers are usually individuals. Less often, seekers are couples or small families; usually providers dont have enough space to accommodate a family larger than three, Fanucchi said. About 95 percent of our clients are under 80 percent of the countys median income, she said. But we do work with clients of all income ranges.

Home Sharing is a safer option than nding housemates online, Fanucchi said. We provide the tools and resources on how clients can interview each other, what questions they should be considering not only about the house but of the neighborhood, things they might not be thinking about such as lifestyle differences, Fanucchi said. We interview every client, we meet with every client. The HIP Housing staff also equips providers and seekers with the tools to maintain a successful business relationship. For example, seekers are encouraged to write checks to pay rent. Staff explains the ramications of providing cash instead. The HIP staff also follows up with clients. If the arrangement is not working, HIP will help. Providers and seekers are asked for references and encouraged to check out the others references. And before the arrangement commences, the parties sign a written, living together agreement, which denes the terms of the living arrangement and communication strategies. If you or anyone you know is interested in the affordable option provided by Home Sharing, you can reach their ofce at (650) 348-6660.

Poll: Slim majority support Browns tax plan


By Judy Lin
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

REUTERS

Gov. Jerry Brown estimated that California faces a $9.2 billion decit in the 2012-2013 scal year,which begins July 1,and has called for closing that shortfall with a near equal balance of spending cuts and the temporary tax increases he wants voters to approve in November.

SACRAMENTO Even though most Californians think the budget remains a big problem, just a slim majority of likely voters say they support Gov. Jerry Browns proposed tax initiative for the November ballot, according to a survey released Wednesday by the Public Policy Institute of California. Using the Democratic governors ballot title and summary for the rst time, the poll found 52 percent of likely voters support temporarily raising the state sales tax and income tax on high-wage earners while 40 percent oppose doing so. Another 8 percent said they are undecided. Thats a drop from past surveys, which found majority support for his plan to temporarily raise taxes. PPIC found Browns proposal had 68 percent support in January, before the ballot language was nished. Brown estimated that California faces a $9.2 billion decit in the 2012-2013 scal year, which begins July 1, and has called for closing that shortfall with a near equal balance of spending cuts and the temporary tax increases he wants voters to approve in November. Most of the additional revenue from his tax initiative would go to K-12 education. A slim majority support Gov. Browns proposed tax initiative, said Mark Baldassare, president and CEO of the Public Policy Institute. Of those who plan to vote against it, most also say that their local governments

have been affected a lot by recent state budget cuts and they would prefer to deal with the gap mainly through spending cuts. Two-thirds of likely voters say their local government services have been affected a lot by recent cuts. Browns initiative would boost the statewide sales tax by half a cent for four years starting in January 2013. It also would raise the income tax for ve years on those making $250,000 a year. If voters reject Browns tax initiative in November, the poll found 72 percent oppose his plan to automatically cut K-12 education. But voters lack consensus on their preferred approach. While 45 percent of likely voters prefer Browns mix of spending cuts and tax increases, 34 percent prefer mostly spending cuts and 11 percent prefer mostly tax increases. The tax ght has not damaged the governors own ratings much, the poll found. Browns job approval rating of 46 percent has changed little since he returned to ofce in January 2011, but disapproval has grown from 20 percent when he took ofce to 38 percent in the latest survey. The state Legislature has a 21 percent approval rating among likely voters. Budget woes, however, are hurting two high-prole infrastructure projects. Just 51 percent of likely voters say they would support an $11 billion water bond on the November ballot and only 43 percent of likely voters still support building a high-speed rail system.

Glitch in DUI device likely wont derail cases


By Paul Elias
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO For the third time in less than a year, hopes of exoneration by hundreds of drunken driving suspects were raised when a district attorney announced wide-

spread problems with hand-held devices police use during eld sobriety tests. But just like the previous two dustups in Santa Clara and Ventura counties, the San Francisco review of about 1,000 DUI cases was expected to lead to few dismissals. Thats because results from the devices

were just one of several pieces of evidence collected in the overwhelming majority of drunken driving cases. Still, ofcials and lawyers say there could be some dismissals because a few cases featured the so-called PAS testing as the only valuable piece of evidence.

The latest flap over the devices began Monday when San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon announced his ofce would review cases involving the Alco Sensor IV, manufactured by St. Louis-based Intoximeters Inc. The company didnt return a phone call Wednesday seeking comment.

Romney encourages rivals to fold


By David Espo
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON His delegate lead growing, Mitt Romney gently nudged his Republican opponents toward the sidelines on Wednesday and said he was on track to wrap up the presidential nomination before the party convention next summer. Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich paid him no mind, vowing to ght on in a campaign marked by persistent ideological divisions. If anything, the political maneuvering intensified as the marathon pointed toward contests in ve states over the next week. Romneys campaign purchased television advertising time in Alabama according to campaign sources, as it pursued a breakthrough in the partys Southern base. A Santorum ally urged Gingrich to abandon the race. In response, the former House speaker said he would consider it if he thought Santorum was sure to beat Romney and then President Barack Obama. I dont, he added.

And when Santorum was informed that an aide to Romney had said it would take an act of God for any other candidate to amass a majority of convention delegates, Santorum responded Mitt Romney heatedly. What wont they resort to to try to bully their way through this race? he said in Lenexa, Kan. If the governor now thinks hes now ordained by God to win, then lets just have it out. One day after Super Tuesday, Romneys campaign circulated a memo making the case that his six victories on a single night had increased his delegate lead to a point that it was increasingly hard for any of his rivals to catch up. And they were hurting the party by continuing to try, it suggested. As Governor Romneys opponents attempt to ignore the basic principles of math, the only persons odds of winning they are increasing are President Barack Obamas, it said.

Romney didnt go that far in an interview, and he stopped short of a at prediction that he would achieve his goal of a pre-convention delegate majority. We think that will get done before the convention, but one thing I can tell you for sure is theres not going to be some brokered convention where some new person comes in and becomes the nominee, he said on CNBCs Squawk Box. Its going to be one of the four people that are still running. After Super Tuesday, Romney has 419 delegates overall, more than his three rivals combined. Santorum is second with 178, Gingrich has 107 and Paul has 47. It takes 1,144 to win the nomination. While Romney clearly would like all his opponents to drop out, the departure of just one either Santorum or Gingrich might be less welcome. The two often divide the anti-Romney vote and enable him to win contests he might otherwise lose. In Ohio, the marquee matchup on Tuesday, Romney edged Santorum by a little more than 10,000 votes out of 1.2 million cast. Gingrich drew about 175,000 votes and Ron Paul 111,000.

House GOP may abandon budget pact with Obama


By Andrew Taylor
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Less than a year after reaching a budget agreement with President Barack Obama, House GOP leaders now seem likely to walk away from it under pressure from tea partybacked conservatives eager to show voters theyre serious about shrinking the government. Democrats and the White House are crying foul and many GOP veterans warn it will produce gridlock later, when the

House turns to spending bills setting agency budgets for the scal year that begins Oct. 1. GOP leaders like Speaker John Boehner of Ohio were top architects of last budget John Boehner summers pact, which traded a $2 trillion-plus increase in the governments borrowing cap for a decades worth of cuts to agency operating budgets

passed annually by Congress and the promise of more cuts by a bipartisan decit supercommittee. But the supercommittee deadlocked, adding to the frustration among many Republicans that they havent done enough to cut spending or curb decits that still exceed $1 trillion a year. Many Republicans are intent on using an upcoming debate over the budget to demonstrate their bona des to voters especially core conservative supporters theyre counting on to turn out in large numbers to maintain the GOPs majority in the House.

WASHINGTON No, its not over yet. But at this rate Mitt Romneys rivals wont catch him unless they pull off an unlikely ght at the Republican National Convention in August. Romney is on a delegate-winning pace to secure the nomination in June, and at their current rate none of his GOP foes will reach even half the number needed. The former Massachusetts governors six victories on Super Tuesday netted him over 200 delegates to the partys convention more than twice as many as any other candidate. And to date, Rick Santorum Romney has won 55 percent of the delegates at stake in primaries and caucuses. At that pace, Romney wont reach the 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination until summer. That provides a lot of opportunities for slip-ups and intrigue and plenty of incentive for Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich to stay in the race and try to make up ground. Newt Gingrich Romneys projecting condence. Weve got the time and the resources and a plan to get all the delegates, and we think that will get done before the convention, he said Wednesday on CNBC.

Yesterday on the House floor, Speier told the story of Jessica Hinves, who was raped while serving in the U.S. Air Force. It was the 16th time she stood before Congress to raise awareness about the epidemic of rape and sexual assault in the military that Speier calls shocking.

When I first found out about the epidemic of rape and sexual assault in the military, I knew I needed to use the microphone that I have as a member of Congress to advocate for the servicewomen and men who were raped by colleagues and then punished for reporting that they were victims of a crime, Speier wrote in a statement after being named to the list.

Food bank threatened by rising prices


Rising food prices are threatening Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo counties ability to feed the hungry. At the same time, the high cost of food is making it even more difcult for low-income families and individuals to put food on the table, putting an even bigger demand on Second Harvest and the food pantries and other food distribution sites it serves. In the last six months, prices for basic staples that the food bank depends on have dramatically increased. Peanut butter, for example is up 57 percent. The price of rice has increased 25 percent. Eggs are now 24 percent more expensive. Bean prices are up 17 percent and cereal has spiked 6 percent. The cost of these staples is compromising Second Harvests ability to provide enough food to local pantries this spring, said CEO Kathy Jackson. Now we are seeing gas prices going up as well, which is making it even harder for the food bank and the people we serve. This comes at a time when Second Harvest and our partners are facing unprecedented need. Second Harvest has seen the number of people it serves each month increase nearly 50 percent since the recession started in 2007. Second Harvest provides food to nearly 250,000 people each month, thats one in 10 people in the two-county region it serves. In addition, nearly 80 percent of the pantries, soup kitchens and shelters that Second Harvest provides food to report increases in the number of clients they serve. For more information about Second Harvest, or to offer a donation, visit www.SHFB.org or call (866) 234-3663. Anyone who is struggling to put food on the table should call Second Harvest Food Banks Food Connection hotline at (800) 984-3663.

Hundreds of potential jurors have been dismissed so far from serving on San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimis domestic violence trial.

Iran may be cleaning up nuke work


By George Jahn
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

VIENNA Satellite images of an Iranian military facility appear to show trucks and earth-moving vehicles at the site, indicating an attempted cleanup of radioactive traces possibly left by tests of a nuclearweapon trigger, diplomats told the Associated Press on Wednesday. The assertions from the diplomats, all nuclear experts accredited to the International Atomic Energy Agency, could add to the growing international pressure on Iran over its nuclear program, which Tehran insists is for peaceful purposes. While the U.S. and the EU are backing a sanctions-heavy approach, Israel has warned that it may resort to a pre-emptive strike against Irans nuclear facilities to prevent it from obtaining atomic weapons. Two of the diplomats said the

crews at the Parchin military site may be trying to erase evidence of tests of a small experimental neutron device used to set off a nuclear explosion. A third diplomat could not conrm that but said any attempt to trigger a so-called neutron initiator could only be in the context of trying to develop nuclear arms. The diplomats said they suspect attempts at sanitization because some of the vehicles at the scene appeared to be haulage trucks and other equipment suited to carting off potentially contaminated soil from the site. The images, provided by member countries to the IAEA, the U.Ns nuclear watchdog, are recent and constantly updated, one of the diplomats said. The diplomats all requested anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the information on the record. The IAEA has already identied

Parchin as the location of suspected nuclear weapons-related testing. In a November report, it said it appeared to be the site of experiments with conventional high explosives meant to initiate a nuclear chain reaction. It did not mention a neutron initiator as part of those tests, but in a separate section cited an unnamed member nation as saying Iran may have experimented with a neutron initiator, without going into detail or naming a location for such work. In contrast, the intelligence information shared with the AP by the two diplomats linked the high-explosives work directly to setting off a neutron initiator at Parchin. In explaining such a device, the agencys November report said that if placed in the center of a nuclear core of an implosion-type nuclear device and compressed, (it) could produce a burst of neutrons suitable for initiating a ssion chain reaction.

Talk of U.S.military in Syria divides Congress

Solar storm headed toward Earth may disrupt power
WASHINGTON The largest solar storm in ve years is racing toward Earth, threatening to unleash a torrent of charged particles that could disrupt power grids, GPS and airplane ights. The sun erupted Tuesday evening, and the effects should start smacking Earth between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. EST Thursday, according to forecasters at the federal governments Space Weather Prediction Center. They say the storm, which started with a massive solar are, is growing as it speeds outward from the sun. Its hitting us right in the nose, said Joe Kunches, a scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. He called it the suns version of Super Tuesday. Scientists say the sun has been relatively quiet for some time. And this storm, while strong, may seem ercer because Earth has been lulled by several years of weak solar activity. This is a good-size event, but not the extreme type, said Bill Murtagh, program coordinator for the space weather center.

WASHINGTON Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and the nations top military leader delivered a sober assessment Wednesday of Syrias sophisticated air defenses and its extensive stockpile of chemical weapons in a strategic reality check to the demand for U.S. military action to end President Bashar Assads deadly crackdown on his people.

President Barack Obamas 2008 rival Republican Sen. John McCain has called for the president to launch airstrikes against Assad to force him from power and end the bloodshed. The United Nations estimates that more than 7,500 Syrians have been killed, with hundreds more fleeing to neighboring nations to avoid the slaughter. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that Obama

has asked the Pentagon for a preliminary review of military options, such as enforcement of a no-y zone and humanitarian airlifts. He insisted that the military would be ready if the commander in chief made the request. What are the potential missions, what is the enemy order of battle, what are the enemys capabilities or potential enemies? What are the troops we have available, and how much time. So, mission, enemy, terrain, troops and time. Thats a commanders estimate, Dempsey said

of the initial step. Panetta said they waiting on Obama before doing more detailed contingency planning. In Congress, only McCains closest Senate colleagues have echoed his plea. War-weary Republicans and Democrats have expressed serious reservations about U.S. military involvement in Syria after more than a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the divisive political ght last summer over U.S. intervention in Libya, and the possibility of an Israeli attack on Iran.

Hiring grows as companies hit limits with workers


By Martin Crutsinger
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON U.S. companies will have to keep hiring steadily to meet their customers rising demand. Thats the message that emerged from a report Wednesday that employers are nding it harder to squeeze more output from their

existing staff. It also helps explain why ADP, a payroll provider, estimated Wednesday that companies added 216,000 workers last month. Those ndings reinforced condence that 2012 will mark a turning point for the long-suffering job market and the economy. Applications for unemployment benets have tumbled. Consumer condence is at its highest point in

a year. And the stock market has been on a tear since the year began. Feeding on themselves, those trends tend to fuel further economic growth. The brighter signs come two days before the government will issue the February employment report. Its expected to show a third straight month of strong hiring. Business executives are sensing

the shift. A survey released Wednesday by Duke Universitys Fuqua School of Business found that condence among U.S. chief nancial ofcers has risen to its highest point in a year. As a result, the survey found that companies expect to increase hiring for full-time jobs by 2.1 percent over the next year, up from 1.5 percent in a survey in December.

Funding for worker resource center in question


The worker resource center for day laborers in San Mateo was facing a funding problem and the City Council was set to discuss how to pay for the program, it was announced the week of March 10, 2007.

s a nancial consultant who reviews many plans each year, all people make simple mistakes in their nancial plans that end up costing them dearly. The biggest mistake they make is that they do not meet with their advisor annually for a review. Few things remain constant these days. If the client is invested in risk products, they should meet with their advisor more often than annually. Their risk advisor should be very hands on, especially if they are in Stocks, mutual funds or Exchange Traded Funds.

Many risk advisors use computer programs to select products based on the clients risk prole. It is impossible to work with a lot of clients and do a lot of trading without using these programs. A lot of activity does not mean that you are gaining. Many times if you deduct the fees of purchasing the product, the management fees paid to the advisors, & the taxes owed, you may be going backwards. Understanding the fees is mammoth. Another detail missed is that they do not have their portfolio reviewed from

a taxation standpoint. Making one dollar more that puts you in a higher tax bracket can be very costly and wipe away the gains you have made. Moving money tax free and growing money tax sheltered produce greater results. Titles of accounts and beneciary designations also impact taxes. You made your wealth. Make sure that you hold on to all you can and then some. Janice Gough, LUTCF, Financial Consultant specializes in Retirement Income Planning

The Mideast and nuclear arms


The New York Times

Other voices
own people. Israels threats of unilateral action have nally focused the worlds attention on the danger. Still, there must be no illusions about what it would take to seriously damage Irans nuclear complex, the high costs and the limited returns. This would not be a surgical strike like the Israeli attack in 1981 that destroyed Iraqs Osirak reactor, or the 2007 Israeli strike on an unnished reactor in Syria. Iran has multiple facilities, and the crucial ones

resident Barack Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel share responsibility for the strains in their relationship. But there should be no doubt about Obamas commitment to Israels security. When he warns that an Israeli attack on Iran could backre, and that there is still a window for diplomacy, he is speaking for American and Israeli interests. Irans nuclear appetites are undeniable, as is its malign intent toward Israel, toward America, toward its Arab neighbors and its

are buried or hardened. Pentagon analysts estimate that even a sustained Israeli air campaign would set back the program by only a few years, drive it further underground and possibly unleash a wider war. It would also cast the Iranian government as the victim in the eyes of an otherwise alienated Iranian public. It would tear apart the international coalition and undermine an increasingly tough sanctions regime, making it even easier for Iran to rebuild its program. Obama is right that military action should only be the last resort, but Israel should not doubt this presidents mettle. Neither should Iran.

Letters to the editor


A simple high-speed rail question
Editor, Heres a simple question about highspeed rail. Politicians promoting the November 2008 high-speed rail ballot proposition promised, legally, that the bullet train would cost only $33 billion to construct (which included San Diego and Sacramento costs), that California would contribute only $9 billion in one-time bonds without further obligation and without the project being a pay as you go blank check from taxpayers. But, the High-Speed Rail Authoritys November 2011 business plan now estimates construction costs at $98.7 billion$117.8 billion, not including San Diego or Sacramento, with California liable for all but $3 billion of that cost. The simple question is why politicians are allowed, ethically, morally or legally, to change what was promised to voters in favor of a project they never approved? Three separate polls show California voters overwhelmingly reject this new bait and switch high-speed rail project, instead wanting money spent on K-12 education, seniors, the mentally ill, not for a blank check high-speed rail boondoggle. Why trust politicians? pass on the first try have seven more chances to pass the test, by which time those students are seniors ready to face the world, shouldnt they be expected to score much higher than 66 percent? What does it really mean if a senior graduates knowing only 66 percent of what he or she should have already known as a sophomore? Is that student really prepared to enter college or the workforce? If California requires students to take this test to graduate, it should require students to know practically everything thats on the test. I believe there is no point of preparing and giving students this test if all they need to know is 66 percent of the material covered. I hope this information is considered in further CAHSEE research, especially coming from a high school student who went through the process of taking this exam. bureaucracy. On the whole I thought that Rhee was a strong advocate of trying to obtain the best possible education for our children.

Just not enough


Editor, The current situation of the United States, over $15 trillion in debt and a part of several costly foreign conflicts, is not looking toward a bright future. The recent implementation of Obamas new plan, incorporating contraceptive costs into federally funded health care, seems to only make the problem more catastrophic. Along with this new addition to spending, about 50 percent of all Americans are already receiving some sort of check from the government; that is a staggering amount of the population. All of these tremendous costs add up, and that is something that the current administration seems to be ignoring. Not only does this plan spend money the government does not have, but it causes enormous flares of anger from many religious organizations. However, this is not a question of morality or religious views, it is a matter of spending money that is not actually present. This should be a very real problem concerning both conservatives and liberals. The bottom line is that the government cannot keep adding more and more pressure to the already stressed economy of the United States, or else this flow of money will keep sinking deeper and deeper into the whirlpool of debt. This outrageous and religiously conflicting spending of money needs to be put to a stop before debt consumes this country.

Students first
Editor, I wonder if Gene Mullin actually attended Michelle Rhees lecture at the San Mateo Event Center (Michelle Rhee Whee! Maybe? guest perspective in the Feb. 29). I did, and saw none of the teachers that Gene said would be there to protest Rhees appearance. I had read up on Rhee and found much of the anti-Rhee rhetoric that follows her around, so I was pleasantly surprised by the common-sense thoughtful comments I heard from her. Contrary to Mullins Guest Perspective in the Feb. 29 edition of the Daily Journal, Rhee does not support getting rid of experienced teachers she does support getting only the best teachers into the classrooms, whether they are brand new or if they have many years experience. Gene did give Rhee credit for doing what Oakland is now trying to close underenrolled and underperforming schools. She also grappled with a very expensive, bloated and inefficient administrative

Editor, I am a sophomore at Hillsdale High School and recently took the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) required by the state to graduate. I believe this test is important and should remain mandatory, but feel the requirements are too low. To pass, you need to get 66 percent on the two sections, math and English. I dont mind that the exam tests only basic knowledge; however, I think that because the test is made so that an average 10th grader could pass, the percentage required for passing should be between 80 percent and 90 percent.

ncle Jesse. Those two words or should I say, that one person are the reason my friend gave for not minding the hours she sat with her other half during an emergency room visit. Uncle Jesse. As they say, it never hurts to look and that ER doc, by her description, is the best looking thing in a white coat at the hospital. Or, at the very least, hes a lot easier on the eyes than hospital art and waiting room magazine stacks. He looks like Uncle Jesse, she said. But sharing this observation with another in the proverbial water cooler discussion was met with a furrowed brow, squinty eyes and that overall perplexed look that simply says, What you talkin about, Willis? Uncle Jesse? As in the Dukes of Hazzard? he asked, likely wondering how this 20-something girl had an apparent soft spot for bearded older men in faded overalls and a red trucker hat not to mention moonshinetransporting nephews and a niece with an entire wardrobe of hot pants. No! she replied to the obviously oblivious. Uncle Jesse, like in Full House, she said, most likely with the image of that iconic San Francisco Painted Lady dancing in her head. His look was still utter confusion. John Stamos, she patiently explained. Ohhhh, he said, nally recognizing that she was thinking of the dark-haired rock musician character sporting the requisite leather jacket and quasi-mullet. I was thinking of the other Uncle Jesse. Then came his turn for head shaking at her blank expression. Whos that? she asked. Seems the line in the sand separating the generations is no longer thinking Britney Spears originated Satisfaction, having seen the original Star Wars trilogy in the theater the rst time around or remembering Paul Abdul before she became a judge on American Idol. The divide isnt even the rst presidential election in which you had voter eligibility or being able to explain oddities like eighttracks, record players and rotary phones. Nope. Instead it is Uncle Jesse. Try this experiment. Say the words Uncle Jesse and see what immediately springs to mind. If you start hearing Waylon Jennings sing, think Boss Hog made white suits a mandate for corrupt ofcials and have considered sliding through an open car window instead of opening a door, please step into the corner for folks who could legally raise a toast well before partying like it was 1999. If, instead, you remember the Olsen twins before they accumulated millions of dollars and a borderline homeless-chic wardrobe and know Bob Saget isnt just the Americas Funniest Home Videos guy, gather with those whose only exposure to the other Uncle Jesse was in a sad, sad movie in which Willie Nelson tackled the role. The real challenge is for us in the middle years, old enough to watch the Dukes of Hazzard religiously with a bowl of popcorn before our moms found out who shot J.R. on Dallas but young enough to be aware of ABCs TGIF line up although, of course, we were too cool to admit it. For us, the line between Jesses is fuzzier and knowing the lyrics to the Rick Springeld classic does nothing to put one on the less-wrinkled end of that spectrum.

Stocks close higher

Wall Street
percent since last Oct. 3, and the rally has proved resilient. Tuesday was the eighth time during that stretch that the Dow fell more than 200 points. Each previous time, it made up most or all of its losses within days. Tuesdays sell-off was triggered by fears that not enough private investors would sign on to exchange their Greek government bonds for replacements with a lower face value and interest rate. Greece needs the investors to agree so it can secure an international bailout of (euro) 130 billion, or $171 billion, and avoid a default later this month that would rattle the world nancial system. By Wednesday, owners of about half of Greeces privately held debt had agreed. Greece needs a 90 percent voluntary participation rate, but 70 percent could be enough for Greece to strongarm the holdouts. European markets and the euro rose slightly. Benchmark indexes nished 0.9 percent higher in France, 0.6 percent higher in Germany and 0.4 percent higher in Britain. The euro rose to $1.315 from $1.311 on Tuesday. Before the U.S. market opened, the government said workers were more efcient late last year, though productivity grew more slowly than in the summer.

Big movers
Stocks that moved substantially or traded heavily Wednesday on the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq Stock Market: NYSE American Eagle Outtters Inc., up 92 cents at $15.54 The teen retailer said that its fourth-quarter prot fell 41 percent, but its adjusted results met Wall Streets expectations. Brown Shoe Co.Inc.,down $1.04 at $9.39 The owner of the Famous Footwear retail chain said that it lost $8.2 million in its scal fourth quarter on restructuring costs. General Electric Co.,up 35 cents at $18.77 The conglomerate expects its revenue to rise as much as 25 percent in resource-rich regions such as Latin America and Africa. Global Cash Access Holdings Inc.,up 66 cents at $6.02 The Las Vegas-based company which provides ATMs for the gaming industry posted fourthquarter results that beat expectations. Nasdaq Discovery Laboratories Inc.,up 33 cents at $4.08 The biotechnology company said that the Food and Drug Administration approved its respiratory distress syndrome drug Surfaxin. Ciena Corp.,up 57 cents at $14.01 The communications network equipment maker said its scal rst-quarter loss narrowed and its forecast met analyst expectations. The Childrens Place Retail Stores Inc., down $1.84 at $50.59 The childrens clothing retail chain said that its scal fourth-quarter prot fell 25 percent due to mild winter weather. Deckers Outdoor Corp.,down $7.33 at $67.35 A Stifel Nicolaus analyst cut his price target on the UGG boots maker saying that mild winter weather could hurt sales.

The stock market reclaimed some losses from its biggest dive this year and returned Wednesday to its pattern of steady gains and stable trading. Reassuring reports on productivity and hiring overshadowed worries about the Greek debt crisis. Stock indexes made solid gains by mid-morning after the government said oil reneries are operating at a faster clip than economists had expected. Oil reners Valero Energy Corp. and Tesoro Inc. were among the biggest gainers in the Standard & Poors 500. The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 78.18 points, or 0.6 percent, at 12,837.33. The S&P 500 index gained 9.27, or 0.7 percent, to close at 1,352.63. The Nasdaq composite index added 25.37, or 0.9 percent, to close at 2,935.69. The Dow dived 203 points on Tuesday, the biggest hitch in a strong rally for stocks this year. Many market-watchers believe that stocks had risen too quickly and were due for a setback. Before Tuesday, the Dow was up more than 6 percent for 2012. You wouldnt expect to get it all back in one day, said Jerry Webman, chief economist at OppenheimerFunds Inc. The average has gained more than 20

Facebook enters new $5 billion credit deal


By Barbara Ortutay
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Facebook has a new $5 billion credit deal, doubling a previous $2.5 billion credit agreement as it prepares for an initial public offering. The social networking company based in Menlo Park, Calif., said in a regulatory ling Wednesday that it has also signed a $3 billion bridge-loan facility to pay taxes on restricted stock units in connection with its IPO. Those are

employee shares that will vest when the company goes public. Facebook, which has 845 million monthly active users by its own calculations, also disclosed that fake or duplicate accounts may represent about 5 percent to 6 percent of that gure. And it gave some new revenue insights by geography. Facebook said in the ling that it is seeing rapid revenue growth in Brazil and in India. The company had 27 million monthly users in Brazil, up nearly fourfold from a year

earlier but accounting for only 30 percent to 40 percent of the countrys Internet-connected population. Its presence in China, where Facebook access is restricted, is nearly nonexistent. Facebooks recent patent spat with Yahoo is also in the updated ling. Yahoo Inc. sent a letter to Facebook on Feb. 27 alleging copyright infringement and threatening to sue. Facebook said in the ling that it is still investigating Yahoos claims and that Yahoo has yet to le a lawsuit.

Apples new iPad has sharper screen


By Michael Liedtke and Peter Svensson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Apple gave the new iPad a bunch of new features but no new name. When it goes on sale next week in the U.S. and several other countries, it will be the iPad or perhaps the new iPad not iPad 3 or iPad HD, as some had speculated. The new iPad unveiled Wednesday comes with improvements that may not be readily apparent to the casual observer. It has, as expected, a sharper screen, driven by a faster processing chip that acts as the brains of the device. What was more surprising was that the new features mean the tablet computer will be slightly thicker and heavier than the iPad 2, because it needs a larger battery to power the high-resolution screen. Prices arent changing from the previous models. They will start at $499. Versions capable of accessing cellular networks will cost $629 to $829.

Business brief
Toyota recalling some Tacomas, Camrys and Venzas
TORRANCE Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc. said Wednesday that its recalling nearly 700,000 vehicles because of various problems. The recalls include about 495,000 Tacoma trucks made during the 2005 through 2009 model years that need to have their steering wheel spiral cable assemblies replaced, Toyota said. The Japanese automaker said that friction may occur in some vehicles between the assemblys spiral cable and the retainer, and over time, cut the connection to the drivers airbag. That could cause an airbag warning light to remain lit after the vehicle is started and for the drivers airbag to be deactivated, preventing the airbag from deploying during a crash, Toyota said.

Colts come up short


The El Camino boys basketball team, down a point with 2.7 seconds left and the ball underneath its basket, ran its inbound play to perfect. Anthony Knight ashed across the middle of the oor to receive the pass and whipped a halfcourt length pass to Elijah White in the corner. White got a good look at the basket as he let his 3-point attempt y. The ball was on line but a little short. It hit the front of the rim and bounced away and just like that, El Caminos season was over. El Cerrito escaped South San Francisco with a 51-50 win over the Colts in the rst round of the Northern California Division III tournament Wednesday night. Execution hurt us [tonight], said El Camino coach Archie Junio. We did not execute any of our game plan. First of all, we didnt play defense very well. Second, they out-rebounded us and got extra possessions. We did not run our offensive sets. A lot of people tried to go 1-on-1. Despite the loss, El Camino (25-6) showed the heart of a champion. After Alex Huerta knocked down a 3-pointer to open the game for the Colts, they did not lead again until 2:53 left when Jalen Bitanga converted a layup to give El Camino a 46-45 lead. Between the Colts leads, El Cerrito (21-8) built a lead as big as 13 points in the third quarter before the Colts came storming back in the fourth quarter. El Camino opened the nal eight minutes with a 12-4 run, tying the score at 40 when Michael Smith converted a three-point play. Two Bitanga free throws tied it again at 42 and a 3-pointer from Smith who nished with a game-high 27 points put the Colts up 49-46 with 55 seconds to play. It was a short-lived lead as Marcellus Pippins completed a three-point play of his own for the Gauchos to tie at 49 with 42 seconds to play. Smith made 1 of 2 free throws to put the Colts up 50-49 with 12 seconds to play, but Pippins hit a step-back jumper over White to give the Gauchos a 51-50 lead with 2.7 seconds to play. Pippins led the Gauchos with 19 points. Again, Junio blamed El Caminos lack of execution for giving up the game-winning shot. We told the team to foul because we had a foul to give, Junio said.

van Bandov experienced nothing but a lot of heartache in Central Coast Section play, twice losing in the seminals in stunning fashion and a third loss in the 2003 championship game, all as the Burlingame starter goalkeeper. Last week, Bandov collected that long sought-after CCS title as the rst-year varsity coach led Mountain View to the Division I title, beating Los Gatos 1-0 in the nal. Ever since losing that CCS title in 2003, I always knew I wanted to go back and win it as a coach, Bandov said. It couldnt have gone any better. The 26-year-old Bandov is quickly climbing the soccer coaching ranks on the Peninsula and in the South Bay. He started coaching club when he was still in school at Burlingame. He has since made stops at the high school level, coaching frosh-soph teams at Burlingame and Carlmont, as well as in college. He served as a volunteer assistant for the San Jose State womens soccer team in 2009 and is currently an assistant coach for the City College of San Franciscos womens squad. The Rams advanced to the nal four of the state tournament last fall. Bandov believes being involved at all three levels gives him a insight into how the game and the game inside the game works between the club, high school and college levels. After I graduated, Dan Rosaia and Fred (Cesano, both former Burlingame soccer coaches) helped me a lot, not only in (how to coach) in high school, but how (the system) works, Bandov said. He said the biggest difference between the club and high school team is the amount of time spent together up to six days a week in high school, while maybe only three with a

MLS thriving decade after barely hanging on


By Tim Booth
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Don Garber was still in the infancy of his tenure as commissioner of Major League Soccer when the league faced legitimate uncertainty about its future and was forced to fold two underperforming franchises. That was 10 years, nine new franchises and 13 new or renovated soccer stadiums ago. There were many times where we were wondering whether or not we would be able to continue to operate, Garber said. The league came out with that launch in 1996 and at that time everybody thought we had cracked the code for soccer in America, and all of a sudden the league would explode on the pro sports scene. In reality, its difcult to launch a sports league. There is lots of competition and soccer was clearly an emerging sport at that time. ... We feel really good about the developments over the last 10 years and I feel really

bullish about the future. For the rst time in recent years, the biggest story entering the MLS season isnt expansion, even though the league will welcome its 19th franchise with Montreal becoming the third Canadian member of the MLS. Instead, its acknowledging a decade of successes. When franchises in Miami and Tampa, Fla., were contracted following the 2001 season, the league was left with 10 teams, just three different owners and only one soccer-specic stadium. Since that 2002 season, the league has successfully added teams and diversied its ownership in nearly every corner of the country, gone north by bringing on three Canadian franchises and raised the talent level to where the quality of play is gaining international respect. I think the improvement of the league over the last 10 years is exponentially more than 10 years, said Seattle coach Sigi Schmid, who was coaching the L.A. Galaxy 10 years ago.

Don Garber

There were many times where we were wondering whether or not we would be able to continue to operate. (Now) I feel really bullish about the future.

You look at Year 1 through Year 6 and you look at Year 6 to now or whatever, the quality of play has gotten better. The fan bases, every club, every city you go into, with the exception of a few, has a really good base support following. The MLS season begins on Saturday with expansion Montreal hosting Vancouver; Colorado vs. Columbus; D.C. United vs. Kansas City; San Jose vs. New England and

reigning MLS Cup champion Los Angeles hosting Real Salt Lake. On Sunday, Dallas hosts New York and Chivas USA hosts Houston and the rst week of play wraps up Monday night with Portland hosting Philadelphia. Toronto and Seattle both received rst-week byes due to their involvement in the quarternals of the CONCACAF Champions League, as did Chicago. The Sounders host Toronto in their opener on March 17, while Chicago opens its season at Montreal the same day. Montreal is the latest franchise to join the fray, hoping to achieve a modicum of the success that recent expansion markets Toronto, Seattle, Portland and Vancouver have enjoyed. But while successful expansion has dominated the leagues on-eld story lines for much of the past few seasons, this year might as well be highlighted by individuals who

Indy releases Manning,let the bidding begin


By Michael Marot
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

INDIANAPOLIS Sent packing by his only NFL team, one he transformed from afterthought to Super Bowl champion, Peyton Manning said goodbye to the Indianapolis Colts with a shaky voice and tearlled eyes, then got ready to nd a new place to play quarterback. At a podium alongside owner Jim Irsay, who cut the injured star Wednesday rather than pay a whopping $28 million bonus due this week, Manning was by turns wistful, nostalgic he got choked up while praising the Colts equipment managers and forward-looking. The only four-time MVP in NFL history now gures to become as coveted a free agent as the league has

ever seen, assuming he can assuage any lingering concerns about the series of neck operations that forced him to miss all of 2011. Arizona, Peyton Miami, Seattle, Manning Te n n e s s e e , Washington and the New York Jets all have been rumored as possible destinations; Mannings former offensive coordinator in Indianapolis, Tom Moore, worked for the Jets as a consultant last season. Nobody loves their job more than I do. Nobody loves playing quarterback more than I do. I still want to play. But there is no other team I

wanted to play for, said Manning, who turns 36 this month. Still, he acknowledged: We all know that nothing lasts forever. Times change, circumstances change, and thats the reality of playing in the NFL. Another reality: Manning should command plenty of offers on the open market. Its not very often that teams get a crack at a QB whos thrown for more than 50,000 yards and nearly 400 touchdowns, been picked for 11 Pro Bowls, and been a Super Bowl MVP. Mannings importance to the Colts success was never more apparent than last season, when their record plummeted to 2-14 without him. I have no idea who wants me, what team wants me, how this process works, Manning told a

group of reporters in South Florida, where he has a home and ew after the news conference. I dont know if its like college recruiting where you go take visits. I mean, this is all so new to me. Reports of other clubs interest began emerging a while back, and theyll only intensify now. Because he was released and went on the waiver wire Wednesday, Manning is allowed to negotiate and sign with any club immediately; he does not need to wait until the free-agent period that begins next Tuesday, and said his agent already was taking calls. I literally have not had one conversation with anyone about these teams. Its been so hard for me trying to gure out some closure with my situation with the Colts, Manning said. I havent thought about teams,

and I dont know who is interested. I really dont. Reaction poured into Twitter feeds from all around the sports world not merely from NFL players publicly lobbying for their teams to sign Manning. Dwyane Wade of the NBAs Miami Heat urged Manning to head to that citys Dolphins, while tennis Andy Roddick, the 2003 U.S. Open champion, observed: The colts cutting Peyton feels like the north pole kicking out Santa. Thats about right. The stark rst sentence of the ofcial team statement read: The Indianapolis Colts today released quarterback Peyton Manning. Even if the news rst leaked out Tuesday and had been anticipated for weeks, if not months it was odd to see those words written about

Giants rally to beat Rockies; Angels scout ejected


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Jamie Moyer pitched two innings of scoreless ball in his rst outing in 18 months and the Colorado Rockies tagged Tim Lincecum for ve runs before the San Francisco Giants rallied for an 8-6 victory Wednesday. The 49-year-old Moyer last pitched July 20, 2010, when he was with

Philadelphia. Soon after, he had Tommy John surgery. He struck out one and gave up one hit for the Rockies. Lincecum was hit hard, giving up seven hits to the 13 batters he faced. In the rst inning, he threw 29 pitches and gave up a leadoff homer to Charlie Blackmon and two-run triple to Michael Cuddyer.

New Giant Melky Cabrera continued his torrid hitting, raising his spring average to .571 (8 for 14) by going 3 for 3.

Angels scout ejected watching Giants practice


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy apparently thought a rival

scout was getting too much of a good look at his team. At Bochys request, a scout for the Los Angeles Angels who was watching the Giants take infield practice Wednesday morning was ejected from Scottsdale Stadium. I dont think its the time for scouts to be there, Bochy said. They have a job to do, I understand that, he said. There were a

couple of things we wanted to work on. Media reports said Angels scout Jeff Schugel was taking notes during the Giants routine drills when he was told to leave the ballpark. It was 10 a.m. and I was just doing my job, watching ineld practice and grading arms, Schugel said, according to CSNBayArea.com.

And they did it emphatic fashion. No. 8 Half Moon Bay limited No. 9 Calaveras to two points in the rst quarter en route to a 67-28 dismantling of the Redskins in the CIFs Division IV bracket. We simply overwhelmed them, said Half Moon Bay head coach Rich Forslund. Every play we ran we either got an open look or a layup. And our defense just smothered them. Calaveras simply got ran out of the gym. The Cougars shot 9 of 15 from inside the arc and 6 of 12 from beyond it in the rst half alone, getting out to a 39-10 lead at halftime. Playing in front of a packed house that included, everyone and their dog, Half Moon Bay charged right out of the game. Corey Cilia led the way, taking four 3-pointers to start play and hitting them all. They (Calaveras) played one of their poorest games, if not their poorest game of the season and we just kind of swallowed them up, Forslund said. I just dont think theyve seen someone run as much stuff efciently offensively as we do, as terms of our sets and getting looks. It became like a roller coaster, it just snowballed. We got on a roll and that was it. There wasnt much they could do. The margin of victory was the biggest for the Cougars since Feb. 9 when they beat Westmoor by 38 points. As mentioned, the win was the rst for Half Moon Bay in Nor Cals ever. And the atmosphere in the campus gym reected that. It was a packed house, Forslund said, fantastic event for Half Moon Bay. I saw people Ive never seen at a game. So it was really fun. Next up for Half Moon Bay is a date with the No. 1 seed in Division IV, Salesian High School of Richmond. The Pride are 30-2 on the season and are ranked No. 6 in the state by Maxpreps.com. The same website has them ranked 31st in the nation. Thatll be quite the challenge. But hey, thats exactly what weve been talking about, having the opportunity to play them and seeing what a state-level team looks like, Forslund said. Were going to be on the court with them and its going to be a lot of fun.

Continued from page 11
The Colts 22 fourth-quarter points were six points less than the 28 points El Camino scored through the rst three quarters combined. El Cerrito, after falling behind 3-0 to start the game, scored the next 15 points to hold a commanding 15-5 lead after the rst quarter. The Gauchos maintained their 10-point lead at halftime, despite seeing the Colts cut their decit to 21-15 with 2:31 to play in the half on a Smith layup. The rst half was horrible, Junio said. The rst half was not even close to what kind of basketball weve been preaching all year. Several times in the third quarter, El Camino whittled its decit to six or eight points, but each time, El Cerrito would push it back to 10. The Gauchos led by eight, 36-28, going into the nal quarter. With the rest of his team struggling the Colts made just 4 of 21 shots from the eld in the rst half Smith did his best to keep his team in the game. He scored just eight points in the rst half, but followed that with 19 in the second, including a pair of 3-pointers. Hes really stepped up this year, Junio said of Smith. He was the player we wanted him to be. He really did put us on his shoulders for a little bit (against El Cerrito). Knight added 11 and White, who missed the Central Coast Section championship game for disciplinary reasons, sat out the rst quarter before playing most of the nal three periods. White nished with only ve points, but he quickness and dribble penetration seemed to open up the rest of the court for his teammates. It looked like [White] was making up for lost time, Junio said. In the second half, [we] adjusted to the game. We lost by a point. It could have been anything in the game. One board (could have been the difference).

Oakland blanks Brewers


PHOENIX Once Jemile Weeks got the ball in this rundown, he wasnt about to give it up. Weeks made a diving tag to nab his older brother Rickie in the rst inning and nished with two hits in the Oakland Athletics 6-0 exhibition victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday. Oakland left-hander Tommy Milone walked Rickie Weeks to lead off the game but picked him off rst. Jemile Weeks was the last player with the ball in the ensuing rundown and chased his brother back toward rst before going to the ground for the out, tackling his sibling at the bag in the process. He was acting like he was frustrated but he was all right, Jemile Weeks said. He just looked at me kinda funny and gave me a little smirk. Asked if he ever considered throwing the ball to a teammate, Weeks quickly said, No. Not a chance. Milone, one of four players acquired from Washington in the offseason deal that sent Gio Gonzalez to the Nationals, pitched three innings of one-hit ball. He struck out NL MVP Ryan Braun for one of his three Ks. It was a good feeling to get out one of the best hitters in the game right now, Milone said, especially to do it for the third out and walk off the eld. I didnt feel as good as I did the last time but I cant complain about the results. Milone, one of several pitchers in the mix for a spot in the Athletics largely open starting rotation, is proud of the development of the pickoff move he used to get Weeks. It used to be just a show me move, he said. Now its turned into, I wouldnt say a game changer, but it saves innings. Braun nished 0 for 2 and is hitless in four plate appearances this spring. I can only head in one direction, he said with a wry smile. So the overwhelming odds are that Ill put one in fair territory one of these days. Milwaukee starter Yovani Gallardo allowed a hit and struck out four over two innings in his spring debut. Manager Ron Roenicke has yet to announce his opening-day starter, but the spring schedule points to Gallardo. I dont think it ever will (get old), Gallardo said. Its one of those things thats very exciting and everybodys looking forward to it, both the ballclub and the fans. NOTES: Braun received a rousing ovation from the pro-Brewers crowd, a decided change from Saturday when he was heckled loudly by visiting San Francisco Giants fans. Braun was caught up in a drug case during the offseason and recently won his appeal, overturning a 50-game suspension for a positive drug test.

almost all layups, dunks or inside the paint in a swift and stunning burst of offense. Mike Conleys lob to Gay for a thunderous alley-oop over Dorell Wright for one of his 12 assists, highlighted the 21-4 run in the rst 5:26. The home crowd showered the team with boos, and perhaps the frustrated fans awakened the Warriors. Golden State surged back with a 31-14 spurt to even the score at 35 halfway through the second quarter. Curry, with a strained tendon in his surgically repaired, troublesome right foot still causing ts, tossed a high-arcing lob to Ellis later in the period to help the Warriors take a four-point lead. The Grizzlies slowly started to pull away again in the third quarter, going ahead 79-66 on Quincy Pondexters 3-pointer. They just blew away the Warriors in a frustrating fourth quarter for the home team, building a 21-point lead that started to rattle Golden State even

Half Moon Bay 67, Calaveras 28


For the rst time in Half Moon Bay boys basketball history, the Cougars have won in the CIF Nor Cal playoffs.

OAKLAND Rudy Gay had 26 points, 12 rebounds and ve assists to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to their fth straight victory, 110-92 over the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night. Marc Gasol added 17 points and 12 rebounds and Marreese Speights scored 18 points to pace the hot-starting and hard-closing Grizzlies, who sprinted to a 21-4 lead, lost it, then built back a 21-point lead late. Memphis has won nine of its last 10 games and is gaining momentum for the second straight season in the deep Western Conference. Monta Ellis had 16 points and a hobbled Stephen Curry came off the bench to score 15 points for a Warriors team that just returned home from a solid 3-3 road trip only to turn in another perplexing performance. The scoring swings started out extreme in this one. The Grizzlies converted defensive stops into easy baskets, making 10 of their rst 11 shots

Spartans would win it all. Just being (the new head coach), theres always a transition period, Bandov said. This was probably one of the hardest seasons Ive had in a while: lost about four starters to injury. Our goal was to get to the nals, but realistically, I thought it would be a really big challenge. Bandov guided the Spartans to a 17-2-3 mark, capturing the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League De Anza Division championship along the way with a 9-1-2 league record. They posted 15 shutouts, including three straight 1-0 decisions in CCS. Theres nothing like winning a CCS title in high school soccer. Youll always remember it. Its a special feeling. What made it even better was that it was the rst in school history, Bandov said. Having tasted nothing but bitter defeat as a player, Bandov gets to savor winning a title as a coach. Being not so far removed from his playing days, he believes he might have a better appreciation of winning and losing. Im only 26, so basically (losing in that 2003 nal) was eight years ago. It wasnt that long ago. I still remember those experiences, Bandov said. I can tell you almost exactly what happened in those losses (while playing at Burlingame). Now Bandov has a new CCS memory to relive, and this time it is a good one.

club team. There is the matter of chemistry for a varsity squad and a team could be drawing players from a number of different club programs. In high school, you have to put a team together from 10 different clubs, Bandov said. It can be challenging, but it is very rewarding at the same time. Bandov couldnt have timed his move to the varsity level any better. He cut his soccer teeth at Burlingame. He trained under Rosaia, who led the Panthers to a CCS title in 1997 and then coached the Panthers frosh-soph boys and girls teams, while also serving as an assistant to Cesano, who won the 1999 CCS title at Carlmont and took over when Rosaia left to build the mens program at the Academy Of Art University. In 2010, he took over the Carlmont girls frosh-soph program. I was fortunate to start (coaching) at Burlingame, which always had a pretty good program, Bandov said. Fred and Danny have been at it so long and both won a CCS title. I learned from guys who knew how to do it. Counting his time with City College of San Francisco and this years Mountain View squad, Bandov has compiled a record of 9920-22 during his coaching career. While thinking of making the move to the varsity level, there was one rule Bandov

applied: He would only leave for a team that had a chance to win immediately and remain a viable program for years to come. Enter Mountain View, which advanced to but returned to L.A. Robbie Keane will have his rst full season playing in MLS with the Galaxy, while Edson Buddle returns from Europe and Juninho from Brazil. About the only question regarding Los Angeles is along the backline, where Omar Gonzalez is still recovering from a serious knee injury. I think weve been developing a team thats a little bit deeper than last year. Hopefully, thats a good sign, L.A. coach Bruce Arena said. The only way were going to be able to tell the potential of this team is when we get into the season (but) Im optimistic we can put together another good team. Los Angeles leads a powerful Western Conference where just about everyone got stronger. The top four clubs in terms of points and six of the top seven last season were in the the 2011 championship game and was a 2010 seminalist. With an impressive resume and a lot of expectations Bandov took the reins, knowing there was no guarantee the West and 2012 isnt expected to be much different. Seattle said goodbye to Kasey Keller but added former U.S. national team striker Eddie Johnson and retained MLS newcomer of the year Mauro Rosales. Real Salt Lake retained the squad that reached the Western Conference nals last year. FC Dallas brings back Brek Shea, while both Portland and Vancouver have upgraded entering their sophomore campaigns. While the West is loaded, the Eastern Conference is muddled. New York has the name talent with Thierry Henry returning for another season and Rafa Marquez trying to bounce back from 2011 disappointment. But the favorite in the East might be Sporting Kansas City, playing its rst full season in its home stadium and with emerging stars Teal Bunbury and 2011 rookie of the year C.J. Sapong.

as well be highlighted by individuals who turned down overseas offers to continue playing in North Americas top league. David Beckhams groundbreaking initial contract with the league expired at the end of last season when Beckham and the Galaxy claimed the MLS Cup title to cap a dominant season. And while a handful of clubs in Europe most notably Paris Saint-German came close to wooing Beckham back across the Atlantic, the English star decided to continue his soccer career in California. The Galaxy werent done there. Landon Donovan thrived during his loan at Everton,

We have a core group of guys returning from last year that has an understanding of how we want to play, so its up to those guys to decide how were going to be week to week, KC coach Peter Vermes said. They havent really won anything yet, so I think hunger is something that goes with wanting to win. MLS has again changed its playoff format. The highest remaining seed will now host the MLS Cup title game instead of having it played at a pre-determined site. The top ve teams in each conference will reach the playoffs, with the Nos. 4 and 5 seeds playing for the right to advance to the conference seminals. The conference championships will also be a two-leg, home-and-home series rather than a single game as in the past.

Renovateold trees with careful pruning

Time to pump up your soil for plants


grow. No matter what type of soil you have and nearly all of us in San Mateo County have various degrees of clay soil it more than likely will benet greatly by the addition of compost. Compost is organic material leaves, grass clippings, kitchen scraps, straw and manure, for example that has decomposed into soft, small pieces. By adding compost to your soil no matter what type of soil you have you make it more fertile and improve its structure. In the case of clay soil, compost loosens it up so that water drains well through it. Left to its own devices, most clay soil holds on to water too long, and air cant get in. The roots of your plants, and all of the helpful organisms that live in soil, cant survive without air. By the way, clay soil isnt bad soil. It may be clingy when it comes to holding on to water, but it also holds nutrients, unlike its sandy sibling who is temperamentally inclined to let water and nutrients wash right through. While Im at it, here is a plea to love the one youre with. Yes, most every gardener pines for a loamy soil one that is exceptionally well balanced in drainage and nutrients, and posts the perfect pH by being nei-

A desire to tidy up the garden and do something outdoors even before anything much is really happening there yet, gardenwise drives many of us out to prune now. Good. March is a fine time for pruning from the perspective of most plants. Certain pruning questions predictably pop up this time of year.

A LILAC MAKEOVER
Lilac sometimes get overgrown with neglect. Can a tangled mass of stems with awkward posture and few flowers be brought back to its former glory? Yes, it can. There are two options in renovation pruning such a shrub. The first is the drastic one: merely lop the whole plant to within 1 foot of the ground. Now. The renovated lilac will hardly be worth looking at for a year, perhaps two. A few vigorous shoots will grow this season, fueled by an established root system. Late next winter, thin out some of those stems, and youre on your way to a new shrub, full of blossoms and with a graceful growth habit. You will soon have what amounts to a whole new plant from the ground up. The second option is to renovate the shrub over a period of four or five years. Although this takes more time, the plant will look decent and flower throughout the recovery period. Exercise this option by cutting two or three of the oldest stems to ground level or to vigorous branches low on the plant each

year in late winter. At the same time, thin out some of the youngest sprouts growing from ground level, making sure to leave a few as replacement shoots for the old wood you are removing. After a few years how many depends on how long the shrub has been neglected you will have cut away all the old wood and replaced it with new wood. This new shrub will be shapely and bear abundant, fragrant blossoms.

OLD APPLE TREES MADE LIKE NEW


Old apple trees similarly often suffer neglect. Such craggy, old trees do have a rustic charm, but too many of their fruit are pestridden, lacking flavor and high out of reach. Can the plant be returned to its former glory? Again, the answer is yes, with, again, renovation pruning.

wet clay soil only compacts it squishing those pockets that could hold air. Sheet mulching is a great technique. Heres how to do it: If weeds are emerging, knock them down or mow them. Then put a layer of cardboard, corrugated paper, or newspaper (only pages printed with black ink; none with color) on top. Overlap them so that you dont leave openings for the sun to get through and encourage weeds to sprout. Pile about one-half inch of compost on top. Then add about three or four inches of mulch, such as small or medium-sized wood chips. If you are trying to amend a bed that already has plants say, an ornamental bed with perennials use the same technique but do it in between and around the existing plants. If it makes more sense, forgo the cardboard or paper layer, and simply lay about one-half inch of compost around and between the plants. Add on top about two inches of mulch. In all cases, be careful not to place material next to where the plant emerges from the ground. By late spring or early summer, you will be amazed at the transformation in your soil. Push aside the mulch, and chances are you will see a big difference in the soil; in the time it would take to restore this one, so before beginning renovation pruning, consider pruning the tree with a saw at ground level. If you do decide to renovate the old tree, now is a good time to start. First make some large cuts low in the tree to thin it out and, if you want, to lower it and limit its spread. Cut one or two major limbs back to their origin or to sturdy side branches. If more major limbs need cutting back, wait a year,

you take care of your soil, youre putting the micro-herds to work for you. They need what we need: air, water, food and shelter. Youre feeding and protecting them. Terry notes that there is a whole lot of life in healthy soil: one teaspoon can contain 100 million to 1 billion beneficial bacteria, and many yards of fungal hyphae. Now, if after pushing back the mulch, you see that your cardboard or paper is still intact, dont worry you can plant right through it. Just slice an X in the material, peel it back, and plant your plant. Replace the mulch, but remember not to put it right up against the plant. What type of compost is best? There are plenty of opinions. What you want is wellmade and well-decomposed compost. Some places sell compost that is made of wood fines. That can work, but wood fines usually arent well composted; they need time to break down into soil. Check the labels and ask about what youre getting. Ideally, add compost twice a year in the fall and spring.

ther too acidic nor too alkaline. Certainly many of us are partnered with soil that is far from our dream date. And yes, with enough money and time and in some cases, a backhoe you can utterly transform your soil. But consider this: Why not understand, appreciate and work with what you have? Yes, make a few improvements add some compost, for example but plant the plants that have an affinity to the soil and conditions natural to the plot of earth on which you live. Another plea: Do not add sand to clay soil. No, it does not help with drainage. But I digress. Back to compost. How, and how much? I picked the brains of fellow master gardener, Terry Lyngso, whose family operates Lyngso Garden Materials in Redwood City. Terry knows the dirt on dirt. First, do not work wet soil. Wait until it is pretty dry. (That wont be long, and it may be right now, given the lack of rain this winter). Tromping on and digging into

Out of sight, but not out of a gardeners mind, are the invisible helpers: the naturally occurring organisms know as mycorrhizal fungi that form symbiotic relationship with the roots of many plants, and help them get water and nutrients, and be more disease resistant. Terry says: Think of it this way when

and if still more must go, hold off for yet another year. If you cut too much in one year, there is the risk of sunburn on once-shaded bark. This summer, new sprouts may grow near some of your pruning cuts. Some of these sprouts, especially those of moderate vigor, might be in good positions to make permanent new limbs. Save those and cut away the others, especially when many are clustered near a pruning cut. With major cuts out of the way for now,

progress to more detailed pruning, using a small pruning saw and lopper. Look over the stems and cut back to sound wood any that are diseased, dead or broken. Also remove stems that are overcrowded or weak. Cut back any drooping stem to a branch near the place where the stem starts drooping. Finally, stand back and admire your work. Cleaned up, an old fruit tree can look even more charming than it did when it was neglected and overgrown. Now give your tree a hug.

Nows the perfect time for dreaming about your spring and summer garden. Gather up your seed and garden catalogs, take some notes, visit a garden center, let your imagination loose and put a plan on paper. Choosing one style, though, can be difficult. Do you want a formal garden, a cottage garden, perhaps herbs mixed in with vegetables and flowers? Will you grow only culinary herbs, or a combination of culinary, aromatic and decorative? Well, why not a little of them all? Consider planting a number of smaller, themed gardens. I did that at my home in Maine, and came to see each one as a room: *** There was a beautiful knot bench in the TEA GARDEN where I grew chamomile, lemon thyme, sage, yarrow, lemon balm, roses, calendula, bee balm, mint, lemon verbena and several scented geraniums. The bees loved this garden, and it was a great stress-reliever to sit on the bench in the warm sun and listen to the buzz of their activity, inhale the fragrances, and enjoy the gardens peace and beauty. In the middle of winter, it was possible to sit and recall the warmer days of summer; the bee balm seed heads were as fragrant then as in midsummer, and you had only to crush one to be taken back. *** The CULINARY GARDEN was circular with a birdbath in the center. The walks around the beds were of crushed rock, and bricks outlined the circular shape. In the winter, the snow would melt off the rocks first and leave the herb beds covered, making an interesting pattern. I grew tarragon, marjoram, curled onion, chives, sage, winter savory, Welsh bunching onion, garlic chives, thyme, oregano, nasturtium, parsley, coriander, chervil, basil and borage here. It was my habit to pick a bouquet of these herbs to chop and toss into a salad. If there were any left over, I would put them in a basket to dry for winter use, or freeze them in a little water to add to a winter soup. As soon as the snow melted, the chives and bunching onions were there to harvest for the first taste of spring. The blue jays and mourning doves that frequented the birdbath were great company on an afternoon spent cultivating and harvesting. *** The ROSE GARDEN was next; it had two entrance trellises and a third trellis with a bench under-

neath. In the beginning, I planted 14 old-fashioned roses, but some didnt survive the cold winter. I replaced them with the more vigorous rugosa rose. This garden was also circular, but with a larger center then the culinary garden. I edged the center with sweet alyssum; placed a lovely old clay pot in the middle filled with scented geraniums; then planted double pink petunias around it. The effect was of a huge tussie mussie. I planted creeping thyme between the bricks in the path. The aroma was out of this world. When the thyme was in bloom, the bees were busy at the blossoms so it was necessary to step carefully. The trellises made interesting shadows in the snow for a pleasing winter effect. Garden structures can be important for a winter garden. *** The next garden was the EVERLASTING GARDEN, where I planted herbs and flowers that dry for decorative use: liatris, strawflowers, statice, echinops, xeranthemum, acroclinium, feverfew and salvia horminium, to name a few. Everlastings are generally easy to grow, and in most cases the annuals can withstand a light frost. I planted this garden first in the spring and simply covered the rows with Remay cloth until the days became warmer. A huge number of strawflowers can be harvested from just a dozen plants; I picked them every sunny day. This garden provided me with bouquets to carry to friends, fresh flowers in summer and dried bouquets in the winter. The pleasure of giving and getting was twofold between the garden and me, and between my friends and me. *** I had never heard of a LIBATION GARDEN until one day I realized I had inadvertently planted hops, grapes and elderberries together in one corner of the main garden, and that all are used to make alcoholic drinks. I decided to expand on the idea, did some research and discovered that heathers were once used as a substitute for hops in making beer. So I added heathers to this garden. I planted sweet woodruff for May wine, and a quince bush, rose bush, mint, wormwood and lemon balm for making cordials. A friend would occasionally harvest hops for beer, but I didnt try it. I did, however, harvest the hop cones each year for use in sleep pillows, an old-time remedy for insomnia. And the heathers were a marvelous addition for year-round pleasure. The reds, greens and golds of the leaves and the pink, rose and white flowers make a garden tapestry to be enjoyed even on a winter walk. I harvested bunches to use in wreaths and winter bouquets. There was a low bench in this garden that was a wonderful place to hide away and sit quietly. The mint crept out into the path, and its refreshing fragrance would linger long after it was touched. *** The FRAGRANT GARDEN was just what the name implies. On warm summer afternoons, its heady aroma could be overpowering. Lavender was of course a part of this garden. Old-fashioned cinnamon pinks, though not as attractive as the new hybrids, smelled beautiful. I planted several dwarf lilacs and a half dozen peonies, along with several fragrant rugosa roses and garden phlox. There was a succession of aromatic blooms all summer, from the early spring peonies to the late summer phlox. I harvested huge baskets of peony petals for potpourri, and added rose petals from the rose garden. I enjoyed strolling in the gardens just at dusk and picking a bouquet of fragrant herbs to infuse for use in the bathtub. I would put some sprigs in a pan of water, simmer for a few minutes and then strain the infusion into the bath water. The whole house would smell sweet. *** With all this talk of fragrant baths, meditative teas and secret hiding corners, you might get the wrong impression of what it is like to cultivate more than an acre of garden space. My knees were permanently stained brown. It was difficult at times to really enjoy the gardens or get away for any length of time because there was always something that needed attention. Summer was an intense time of planting, weeding, harvesting and processing. But I loved it.

HARTFORD, Conn. The mild winter that has given many Northern farmers a break from shoveling and a welcome chance to catch up on maintenance could lead to a tough spring as many pests that would normally freeze have not. Winters are usually what one agriculture specialist calls a reset button that gives farmer a fresh start come planting season. But with relatively mild temperatures and little snow, insects are surviving, growing and, in some areas, already munching on budding plants. Almost every state had a warmerthan-usual January, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. In Albany, N.Y., for example, the average high in January was 37 degrees, when its usually less than freezing, according to the National Weather Service. In Tulsa, Okla., the average high last month was about 57 degrees, 9 degrees higher than normal. The Upper Midwest, Great Plains and a few other areas were much above normal in temperature, NOAA said. Dawn Allen, who has an 89-yearold, family-run bog in Freetown, Mass., said her family will likely start sweeping bogs with a contraption similar to a buttery net in April to catch winter moth caterpillars, instead of waiting until mid-May, when they typically start. The winter moth caterpillars are aggressive and eat buds, potentially ruining a crop for a whole year. Its a big stress factor that gets us out on the bog early, said Allen, whose farm sells cranberries for juice and pulp converted into cranberry vitamins. Martha Sylvia, a research technician at the University of Massachusetts cranberry station, said growers should expect to start spraying earlier and more often because theres definitely an upswing in winter moths, she said. We just know were in for it, Sylvia said. Tim Tucker, a beekeeper in Niotaze, Kan., said he saw ies in February when all ies should be gone and bumble bees that usually dont appear until May or June. The warm weather hasnt been entirely good for beekeeping, though. Usually, queen bees wont lay eggs in the cold, but this year, his hives have been active. This year, we have some hives that raised bees all winter, Tucker said. I dont think they ever stopped. Because so many bees are being raised, Tucker has had to buy supplemental food, such as sucrose, so they dont eat all the honey he wants to sell.

is telling. Now the City Council has to start all over again and rewind this whole thing, Duncan said. Klein said the prevailing issue is the expansion vote. However, coming on the heels of a controversial cell tower proposal later appealed to the City Council and sparking a lawsuit, the decision gives Klein pause about future appointments and re-appointments to the commission. This is the second time weve had to go back to the drawing board, he said. Planning Commission Chair Karen Clapper could not be reached for comment. But while Klein said hes ready for an appeal and leaning toward a denial of the permit, others on the council say they want to fully vet the issue rst. I know the chief has concerns and the owner wants to improve his property so thats where theyre at loggerheads. This is a tough one because there is certainly an increase in restaurants and places to gather in the last 10 years and Im not sure where we draw the line or if the problem is specic to the Carlos Club, Grassilli said. Grocott lives downtown and said hes made calls to the police when late hours and summer weather bring out a party attitude although that isnt specic to the Carlos Club. There must be a balance, he said, between knowing you live near downtown with the associated incidents and not being a college town. What do you do? If it comes before us Ill certainly try to weigh it as objectively as I can but Im not someone to call for an appeal, Grocott said. Duncan and his supporters have said the bars problem is not the number of incidents but its perception by some in the community. He said law enforcement singles out his club and by virtue of its location and later hours gets more attention. Klein dismissed the argument. Its like when you catch a kid always misbehaving so the teacher knows you have to watch him. Hes not just being singled out for no reason, Klein said.

CLUB
Continued from page 1
Club owner Fred Duncan was not surprised at news of a potential appeal. Theyve fought me tooth and nail so Im not surprised. Hopefully, they give me the opportunity to talk to them rst. This has been so one-sided, he said. Klein will have allies in at least councilmen Mark Olbert and Ron Collins, both of whom said theyre not sure if the decision should stand but believe the City Council should have an opportunity for reconsideration. Ive got some questions and always said if the police chief has concerns, I have concerns, Collins said. So if they ask us to put it on the agenda, Im in favor. Olbert met with City Manager Jeff Maltbie Wednesday afternoon about the issue before deciding for sure he also wants to talk about the Carlos Club. Olbert planned initially to call up the item himself before learning Maltbie will place it on the agenda. I think its a pretty signicant decision that has a lot of ramications. If nothing else, theres the budgetary impact and that is enough for thinking the council ought to hear it, Olbert said. Councilman Matt Grocott said hes willing to hear the request but isnt one to make an appeal himself. Councilman Bob Grassilli is also open-minded but said he hasnt followed the specific details of the proposal and opposition because he gured an appeal would deliver him the full staff report. I dont have a horse one way or another in this one, Grassilli said. The Carlos Club, and its iconic neon sign, sits at 612 El Camino Real. Owner Fred Duncan wants to turn an empty parking lot behind the club into an open air patio with a food truck, live acoustic music and seating for 96 patrons. Duncan received a parking exemption last year with little fanfare but hit some hurdles requesting a conditional use permit after Sheriffs Capt. Greg Rothaus, head of the San Carlos Patrol Bureau, worried that expanding the night club could also expand what he said are public safety problems. Rothaus reported 131 incidents from the club; a later

breakdown by the Sheriffs Office showed that 69 were spot checks initiated by deputies and seven were more specically alcohol-related like driving while under the inuence. Some individuals residents and the Greater East San Carlos association also opposed the proposal. On Monday, March 5 the Planning Commission voted 4-1, with Vice Chair Scot Marsters opposing, in favor of the permit. The majority said they liked changes Duncan had made to the design plan in response to previous questions and concerns but Marsters said he still had an issue with safety. At that meeting, the commission did not ask Rothaus, who was in the audience, to speak which Klein called incredibly disrespectful. Rothaus had made a presentation at a meeting in the fall when the permit request rst came before the commission. Commissioner Angela HarperPederson said she was taken aback at the overall alcohol statistics reported for the city by Rothaus and Commissioner Steve San Filippo questioned the validity of the numbers. If that were true, Klein said, they should have asked Rothaus for further clarication before voting. They dont care at all about the public safety, Klein said. This is the rst time in history the chief has asked them to deny an application and they clearly needed to look at that. Duncan said the commission did a great job but thinks Marsters, a GESC member, came into the discussion with his mind already made up and that the lack of public opposition at the meeting highly skilled and trained in very technical areas but it can take time to transition those skills into a eld in which the person can be employed locally. Scholarship funds are set up to support both efforts. The move-in assistance scholarship will help with the deposit. Once someone is nancially stable, they can take over the deposit and return the money to Shelter Network which can then reinvest the money. For education, monetary donations allow for vocational program scholarships an investment in a persons future, said Lisle. Catuar was strict on herself when it came to setting deadlines for nding her own place. If people were investing in her, she wanted to move forward quickly. Getting herself set up, Catuar said, would allow an opening for someone in a similar situation to get assistance toward supporting themselves. In the last year, Shelter Network served 4,658 people, including 1,655 including book signings lectures and film screenings. Nonprofit groups in need of a meeting space are welcome to use the building free of charge, as well as the garden in the back. Opening the center involved a collaborative effort by Reach and Teach, a peace and social justice learning company, and The Rebuilding Alliance, a nonprot organization aimed at rebuilding war-torn communities. The Rebuilding Alliance was developed by Donna Baranski-Walker in 2003 as a way to assist peacemakers working together to rebuild Palestinian schools, playgrounds and residences. Both groups share ofce space in the building, and offer products and resources in the

VETS

find themselves homeless, Shelter Network Executive Director Karae Lisle explained. Brian Greenberg, vice president of programs and services for Shelter Network, said capacity is often the biggest problem for the organization. There are simply not enough beds for those who need it. Expanding or building new facilities is also difcult as many in the community voice concerns about being near a facility for the homeless. Once able to house vets facing poverty, Greenberg said Shelter Network offers support for a range of issues. The major obstacle to getting back on your own is saving money for a down payment on an apartment. Education can be another challenge. Veterans are often

children. More than 90 percent of families graduating from the transitional shelters secured and maintained permanent housing. More than 25 percent of the people they serve are children age 5 or younger. Shelter Network is ramping up a new program called Supportive Services for Veteran Families which offers eviction prevention and rapid re-housing services for single vets as well as veterans with families.

Be honest about your abilities. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) It wont add any luster to your image if you deliberately do things that buck the will of the majority, just to prove your independence.
