The Belmont City Council voted
last night to raise sewer rates 19 per-
cent over the next two years to fund
outstanding bond debt and to repair
and replace the citys aging sewer
Currently, the average residents
sewer bill is about $507.69 a year in
Belmont. Next year it will climb to
$555.92 and the year after to
$605.96 unless a majority of resi-
dents oppose the hike through a
Proposition 218 notication.
The city currently only allocates
about $250,000 a year for repair and
replacement of the sewer system but
aims to raise about $800,000 annu-
ally with the rate hike.
A $4 or $5 increase a month is
not a significant cost for the aver-
age Belmont resident under afford-
ability standards, consultant Tom
Gould of HDR Engineering told
the council last night.
But Councilwoman Coralin
Feierbach challenged that assertion
before approving the rate hike.
Although the average income
may be high for Belmont residents,
many live on xed incomes and
cannot afford big rate hikes,
Feierbach said.
She also said most residents do
not take the time to read Proposition
218 notices when they come in the
Most people dont read it. Dont
understand it and dont consider it,
she said.
She hopes the city will make an
earnest effort to engage the commu-
nity on the need to x the sewer sys-
tem and why a rate hike is neces-
Any time you raise rates its a
shock, said Councilwoman
Christine Wozniak, who suggest-
ed residents need to do a better
job of reducing the flow into the
wastewater system.
Part of the increase is due to esca-
lating cost related to recent capital
projects by the South Bayside
System Authority, which treats
About 42 percent of sewer-related
cost, or $2.6 million annually, is
related to SBSA wastewater treat-
ment cost, according to city staff.

SAN FRANCISCO Hundreds of Occupy
Wall Street demonstrators from across the
country descended on San Francisco Tuesday
in an attempt to crash banking giant Wells
Fargos annual shareholders meeting.
Several dozen people representing commu-
nity groups had bought company stock and
were allowed inside the meeting. Police said
24 people were arrested, including 15 for dis-
rupting the meeting while inside the standing-
room-only gathering of nearly 300 people.
Dozens of police ofcers were stationed
around the Merchants Exchange Building in
the citys bustling nancial district in advance
of the 1 p.m. meeting.
Many stockholders arrived early and were
asked to show certicates or letters of proxy
before being corralled past gates erected in
front of the doors. As they went inside, hun-
dreds of union members, activists and clergy
members blocked the street waving signs and
chanting, We are the 99 percent! Let us in!
Shareholder Erik Crew, 30, of Cincinnati,
said he was arrested at the meeting shortly
after one protester shouted that Wells Fargo
should pay its fair share of corporate taxes. A
group of women then said the bank should be
ashamed of investing in private prisons and
pleaded for a moratorium on home foreclo-
sures, he said. While the demonstration was a
small win, Crew said, the real victory will
come when the corporation actually divests
from the aforementioned dealings.
This is a public statement that raises
awareness to hold Wells Fargo more account-
able, he said. Its going to take a lot more
intervention from other entities who will
threaten to pull their money out of Wells
Fargo in order to claim victory.

By Paul Larson

recently attended a
family funeral in
Southern California.
The burial took
place at a long
established Catholic
Cemetery which
later decided to build a Mortuary facility on
their property. I knew from past experience
that this cemetery was well maintained and
had a good reputation. The immediate
family had other loved-ones buried at the
cemetery and wished to return this time too.
With the knowledge that this cemetery had a
Mortuary on the grounds they trusted it to be
convenient and decided to have this facility
handle the funeral arrangements.
Prior to the funeral I had some phone
contact with the Mortuary staff and saw
nothing out of the ordinary. But soon after I
spoke to family members who relayed
troubling details such as higher than average
costs, questionable service and other
apprehensions that raised a red-fag. I
listened carefully taking into consideration
that funerals and arrangements may be
conducted differently in Southern California
(as compared to here on the Peninsula).
Later though I discovered that these
concerns and others were all valid as I
experienced them myself during the funeral.
Coming from the background of owning
a family run and community supportive
funeral home I was embarrassed at what I
saw as a production line process with little
compassion or time to care for the families
this Mortuary is supposed to be serving.
I wondered how the Catholic Church
could allow this Mortuary to operate in such
a manner? Well, I did some research and
discovered that the Archdiocese of Los
Angeles has mortuaries located on a
number of their cemetery properties, but
does not operate them. According to the
Funeral Consumers Alliance of Southern
California the Archdiocese has an
arrangement with Stewart Enterprises
which is a New Orleans based mortuary
corporation. Stewart Enterprises runs a
website called Catholic
giving a misleading impression to many that
the Catholic Church operates these facilities.
When patronizing one of these
mortuaries on Catholic cemetery grounds
most families assume that they will be
receiving a level of comfort as they would
from their local church or parish priest.
None of this was evident during my
experience of extremely high costs
(compared to what was received) and the
dis-interested service provided by the
mortuary staff. I dont see this as a failing
of the Catholic cemetery, but of those in
charge of running this mortuary.
The point Im trying to make is to do
your homework and shop for a Funeral
establishment you are comfortable with.
Just because a Mortuary is located on
cemetery property doesnt mean they are
your only choice or that they offer fair costs
or give better quality ofservice. You have
the right to select what ever funeral home
you wish to conduct the arrangements. Talk
to various funeral directors, and ask friends
and families who they would recommend.
If you ever wish to discuss cremation,
funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to
call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF
THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650)
588-5116 and we will be happy to guide you
in a fair and helpful manner. For more info

Police investigate suspicious death
A man found dead in his Burlingame home April 8 by police
may have died from the result of an altercation he had a few days
earlier in San Francisco, according to police.

Gunshot leads to five arrests
Five males are in custody after there was a report of a single
gunshot and sheriff deputies located a man with a loaded rie at
Nasturtium and Oleander roads in Half Moon Bay.

large, concealed weapon. The man, identied as Felix Garduno-
Vega, 18, out of Half Moon Bay, was arrested for possession of a
loaded rearm and a dangerous weapon, according to police.

Pressuring Republicans in Congress to
act, he sought to energize the young peo-
ple essential to his campaign those
who voted for him last time and the
many more who have turned voting age
since then. Obama urged students to take
their message to social media sites like
Twitter to pressure their lawmakers.
Both Obama and Romney have
expressed support for freezing the cur-
rent interest rates on the loan for poorer
and middle-class students but lawmakers
are still exploring ways to pay for the
plan. The issue is looming because the
rate will double from 3.4 percent to 6.8
percent on July 1 without intervention
by Congress, an expiration date chosen
in 2007 when a Democratic Congress
voted to chop the rate in half.

Bernice E. Malloy
Bernice E. Malloy (Bea), resident of Menlo Park, currently of
Millbrae, was born April 26, 1911, and died April 17, 2012.
Bernice (Bea) was born in Chicago, Ill. to Bruno and Amelia
She married Thomas J. Malloy in 1931 and is survived by
their three children: Sarah Kathleen Kruse of Sunrise, Fla.;
Barbara Gauger of San Mateo; and Dr. Thomas E. Malloy of
Salt Lake City, Utah.
Bea was a homemaker and she lived many years in Lisle, Ill.
where her husband served as the towns rst Mayor. She moved
to Millbrae in 1962 when her husband, Tom, was transferred to
California by Western Electric Co., a division of AT&T.
Both Tom and Bea were wonderful dancers and danced
whenever an opportunity presented itself. They also were world
travelers and traveled to many countries. One of their favorite
ways to travel was by cruise ship because it afforded them the
opportunity to use their love for dancing along with sight see-
She lived close to 50 years in Millbrae and the last four years
at Glenwood Inn (Casa de Peninsula) in Menlo Park where she
made many new friends. She led an active life and was involved
with her many descendants until shortly before a brief illness
claimed her life.
Tom preceded Bea in death in 1999 at age 90, while Bea lived
to be just days short of 101. They had a long and wonderful life
together and she was ready to be reunited with her love.
Bea is survived by her three children, 14 grandchildren, 33
great-grandchildren and 12 great-great-grandchildren. She was
preceded in death by her husband Tom, her brother Medard
Mitchell and a grandson John Paul Gauger.
A mass will be said in her honor at St. Dunstans church in
Millbrae noon May 3. She will then be interred alongside her
husband at Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma.

Elaine was a dedicated bookkeeper and tax professional for
more than 30 years in the Bay Area. Her sharp mind, kind heart
and cheerful spirit will be remembered by many.
A loving mother of three, Elaine is survived by her children,
George James Crimmins II, Shawn Patrick Crimmins and
Shannon Leigh McBrien.

One half of a couple accused of a
Peninsula armed robbery spree pleaded
no contest to two counts of second-
degree robbery a week after her accom-
plice did the same in a similar negotiat-
ed settlement.
Melissa Pearlene Butler, 21, also
admitted committing a serious felony
and prosecutors dropped other charges
including burglary and assault with a
deadly weapon. She faces up to two
years in prison when sentenced June
She took the deal a
week after failing to
appear at an earlier
pre-trial conference
during which Marc
Anthony Jordan, 23,
settled his case. He
faces three years in
prison when sen-
tenced May 18.
Prosecutors say
between Aug. 6 and Aug. 10, the pair
and a 16-year-old boy, whose name was
withheld because he is a minor,
approached victims with weapons,
demanding money and jewelry. In one
case, two of the suspects robbed a deliv-
ery driver returning to his vehicle. Two
days later, a man reported being assault-
ed and robbed on South Grant Street in
San Mateo.
Police searching their East Palo Alto
homes reported nding the stolen prop-
erty, one BB gun and one real handgun.
San Mateo and Burlingame police
believe the defendants may have com-
mitted up to 10 robberies in the area.
Butler is free from custody on $25,000
bail while Jordan remains held on the

Redwood City students could see
fewer school days if funding drops,
under an agreement with teachers that
goes before the Board of Trustees
Allowing for funding to dictate the
number of school days and pay is a prac-
tice the district previously adopted in
response to mid-term budget cuts. Many
districts now place possible furlough
days at the end of a school year in hopes
of instead holding class. The Redwood
City Elementary School District, in
cooperation with its unions, was among
the rst to use the idea.
On Wednesday, the board will consid-
er a one-year contract with the Redwood
City Teachers Association from July 1,
2012 through June 30, 2013 that would
keep that practice going. The 187-day
school year, however, will have one fur-
lough day built in. Under the funding
formula, the current year should be cut
one day. Instead, that cut will be made in
the following year, according to the pro-
posed contract. Conversely, the addition-
al work days will be restored should
funding increase.
No raises are included in the proposal
and class sizes will average 31 students.
The board meets 7 p.m. Wednesday,
April 25 at the District Office, 750
Bradford St., Redwood City.
Teachers, district discuss contract agreement

SACRAMENTO Academy Award
winner Geena Davis joined lawmakers in
the state capital Tuesday to announce new
funding for the Commission on the Status
of Women, which Gov. Jerry Brown had
proposed eliminating as part of sweeping
cuts to the state budget.
Assembly Speaker John Perez, D-Los
Angeles, said the state Assembly will give
the commission $150,000 from its own
budget. Davis, who is the commissions
current chairwoman, said the panels work
is still needed as California women face
unequal work conditions, earn only 84
cents to the dollar that men earn, and are
more likely to be without health care.
The Thelma and Louise star, who was
appointed to the commission by former
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, said the
money will allow the commission to keep
operating in the 2012-
13 scal year. It will
seek private funding
and partnerships for
future years.
We on the com-
mission have heard
Governor Browns
concerns, and we are
moving forward in a
new direction with a
claried focus and a renewed commit-
ment to women and girls, Davis said.
She said the commission will focus on
gender inequality in the media, women
and families in the military, business, edu-
cation and health and safety.
In January, Brown proposed eliminat-
ing the commission, which was created
by his father, former Gov. Pat Brown, in
1965. The commission was established
as an advisory panel to the Legislature
and governor on public policy issues
affecting women.
His budget for the coming scal year
said there were numerous alternative and
effective forums addressing the same
issues. The cut saves $265,000 in the
states general fund, which pays for day-
to-day government operations.
Perez was surrounded by female law-
makers as he announced the funding
Tuesday in a meeting room at the state
Capitol. Sen. Noreen Evans, D-Santa
Rosa, chairwoman of the legislative
womens caucus, said women and chil-
dren have taken the brunt of successive
years of deep budget cuts to social servic-
es, health programs and education.
Whether its women as providers of
state services, such as teachers or health
care providers, or whether its women as
recipients of state services, such as in-
home supportive services or child care,
these cuts are impacting the women of this
state, she said.

Republican presidential candidate former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney waves with
his wife Ann after his speech at a primary night rally in Manchester, N.H.
By David Espo and Kasie Hunt
WASHINGTON Mitt Romney laid claim
to the ercely contested Republican presiden-
tial nomination Tuesday night with a stful of
primary triumphs, then urged all who struggle
in a shaky U.S. economy to hold on a little
longer, a better America begins tonight.
Eager to turn the political page to the gener-
al election, Romney accused President Barack
Obama of false promises and weak leader-
ship. He declared, Everywhere I go,
Americans are tired of being tired, and many
of those who are fortunate enough to have a
job are working harder for less.
The former Massachusetts governor spoke
as he swept primaries in Connecticut, Rhode
Island, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New
York, the rst since Rick Santorum conceded
the nomination.
Mitt Romney is going to be the nominee,
and Im going to support the nominee, the
former Pennsylvania senator said on CNN. He
added he intended to meet on Wednesday with
the winners aides.
Romney, speaking to cheering supporters, in
New Hampshire, said, The last few years
have been the best Barack Obama can do, but
its not the best America can do.
He delivered his remarks to a national tele-
vision audience as well from the state where
he won his rst primary of the campaign and
one of about a dozen states expected to be bat-
tlegrounds in the summer and fall campaign
for the White House.
Obama campaigned during the day in two
others North Carolina and Colorado
making the case that, however slowly, the
economy is growing stronger.
Our businesses have added more than 4
million jobs over the past two years, but we all
know theres still too many Americans out
there looking for work or trying to nd a job
that pays enough to cover the bills and make
the mortgage, the president said.
We still have too many folks in the middle
class that are searching for that security that
started slipping away years before the reces-
sion hit.
Romney sweeps five wins
By Andrew Taylor
WASHINGTON Republicans controlling
the House are opting for the politically safe
route as they follow up their tightsted, Tea
Party-driven budget with less controversial
steps to cut spending.
Instead of big reductions in Medicaid and
Medicare, top GOP lawmakers are sticking
mostly with familiar proposals like cutting
money for President Barack Obamas health
care overhaul and federal employee pensions
while reaching out to Democrats to help pass
annual spending bills.
At issue is follow-up legislation to the sweep-
ing budget document that passed the House last
month. Under Congress arcane budget
process, its simply a nonbinding blueprint that
sets the terms for follow-up legislation.
The broader GOP plan, by Budget
Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., also
calls for cutting day-to-day operating budgets
for domestic agencies $19 billion below last
summers bipartisan budget and debt deal.
Republicans strongly backed the Ryan plan
last month as a rst step in tackling out of con-
trol decits. Its also a campaign document that
casts in stark relief the differences between
Republicans and Democrats on spending and
decits with an election little more than six
months away.
But steps to actually try
to pass the full Ryan budg-
et into law arent happen-
ing; with Obama in the
White House and Democrat
controlling the Senate, any
attempt to follow up the
Ryan plan with binding leg-
islation is doomed to fail.
So GOP leaders like
Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, appear to have
decided that theres no sense in making GOP
lawmakers walk the plank and cast numerous
politically dangerous votes on issues like
Still, conservatives are enthusiastic about the
cuts, though they pale in comparison to whats
in store if Republicans win the Senate and take
back the White House.
It is, to a certain extent, an introduction to
what we might go through next year if the elec-
tions go the way we want, said Rep. Mick
Mulvaney, R-S.C.
What the Republicans are doing now is hard-
ly unusual. Democrats in the Senate arent
pressing ahead at all on the budget, fearful of
politically risky votes.
But the differences between the Ryan budget
and the follow-up legislation are dramatic

its budget punches

deadly explosion in 2010 to be ripped out of
the neighborhood it set aame.
Residents have been pushing for the gas
transmission line to be removed since it
ruptured on Sept. 9, 2010. The blast and
ensuing inferno killed eight people and
destroyed 38 homes.
Until recently, Pacic Gas & Electric Co.
had said the company planned to plug its
pipeline with concrete. The pipeline has not
been in service since the explosion.
City workers have recommended tearing out
a portion of the pipeline, but leaving in other
sections and lling them with concrete.

New case of mad cow disease in California
U.S. officials announced a case of mad cow disease in a
dairy cow in California. It is only the fourth such case
detected in the U.S. since the first case was identified in
Q: Is it safe to drink milk or eat beef?
A: Yes. The new case is a dairy cow and officials say the
disease cant be transmitted in milk.
Q: What is mad cow disease?
A: Mad cow disease is the common term for bovine
spongiform encephalopathy, or BSE. Its a degenerative
nerve disease in cattle that kills brain cells and leaves
spongy holes in the brain.
Q: Can humans get mad cow disease?
A: Yes. BSE is linked to a rare but fatal human brain
disease, variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. People get it
by eating beef products contaminated with mad cow dis-
ease. Only three cases have been confirmed in the United
States, but health officials say those were linked to meat
products in the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia.
Q: How was the latest case spotted?
A: The case was discovered through routine testing of a
cow that was being sent to a rendering plant in central
California. Rendering plants process dead animals and
animal waste for use in such things as animal feed and
industrial fats and oils. Testing involves taking samples
from the brains of dead animals from farms, slaughter-
houses and livestock markets.
Mad cow case found, but
meat supply deemed OK
By Lauran Neergaard
WASHINGTON The rst new case
of mad cow disease in the U.S. since
2006 has been discovered in a dairy cow
in California, but health authorities said
Tuesday the animal never was a threat to
the nations food supply.
The infected cow, the fourth ever dis-
covered in the U.S., was found as part of
an Agriculture Department surveillance
program that tests about 40,000 cows a
year for the fatal brain disease.
No meat from the cow was bound for
the food supply, said John Clifford, the
departments chief veterinary ofcer.
There is really no cause for alarm
here with regard to this animal, Clifford
told reporters at a hastily convened press
Mad cow disease, or bovine spongi-
form encephalopathy (BSE), is fatal to
cows and can cause a fatal human brain
disease in people who eat tainted beef.
The World Health Organization has said
that tests show that humans cannot be
infected by drinking milk from BSE-
infected animals.
In the wake of a massive outbreak in
Britain that peaked in 1993, the U.S.
intensied precautions to keep BSE out
of U.S. cattle and the food supply. In
other countries, the infections spread
was blamed on farmers adding recycled
meat and bone meal from infected cows
into cattle feed, so a key U.S. step has
been to ban feed containing such materi-
Tuesday, Clifford said the California
cow is what scientists call an atypical
case of BSE, meaning that it didnt get
the disease from eating infected cattle
feed, which is important.
That means its just a random muta-
tion that can happen every once in a
great while in an animal, said Bruce
Akey, director of the New York State
Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory at
Cornell University. Random mutations
go on in nature all the time.
The testing system worked because it
caught what is a really rare event, added
Mike Doyle, director of the University
of Georgias Center for Food Safety.
Its good news because they caught
it, Doyle said.
Clifford did not say when the disease
was discovered or exactly where the cow
was raised. He said the cow was at a ren-
dering plant in central California when
the case was discovered through regular
USDA sample testing.

WASHINGTON The Senate reject-
ed a Republican attempt Tuesday to over-
turn new regulations designed to give
unions quicker representation elections in
their effort to organize more workplaces.
The 54-45, largely party line vote
against a resolution of disapproval leaves
intact National Labor Relations Board
rules that are scheduled to take effect
April 30. Unions had sought the rules
changes while business groups opposed
them. Senate Democrats unanimously
supported the new regulations. Alaska
Sen. Lisa Murkowski was the only
Republican supporting them.
Under the existing regulations, workers
typically vote within 45-60 days after a
union gathers enough signatures from
workers saying they want to hold an elec-
tion. The new rules could cut that time by
days or even weeks by simplifying proce-
dures and putting off some challenges
until after the election is held, cutting
back hearings and reducing legal delays.
Unions call the changes a modest x to
prevent companies from using stalling
tactics to delay a vote while workers can
be subject to harassment, threats and even
illegal ring. Republicans argue the new
rules will lead to ambush elections that
barely leave company managers enough
time to respond or counsel against form-
ing a union.

Armenian genocide
On April 24, the San Mateo County
Board of Supervisors ratied a procla-
mation designating April 24, 2012 as
Armenian Genocide Commemoration
Day initiated by Supervisor Dave Pine.
We commemorated the 97th anniversary
of the Armenian Genocide of 1915 in
which 1.5 million Armenians were
killed by the Turkish Ottoman Empire.
The United States government still has
not recognized the Armenian Genocide
because of Turkish government bullying.
William Saroyan once said: I should
like to see any power of the world
destroy this race, this small tribe of
unimportant people, whose wars have
all been fought and lost, whose struc-
tures have crumbled, literature is
unread, music is unheard and prayers
are no more answered. Go ahead,
destroy Armenia. See if you can do it.
Send them into the desert without bread
or water. Burn their homes and church-
es. Then see if they will not laugh, sing
and pray again. For when two of them
meet anywhere in the world, see if they
will not create a New Armenia.

Stupid protest
When I was driving home Monday
from Pacic Shores, I was stopped by a
handful of protesters who walked back
and forth across a crosswalk seemingly
only intent on preventing me and other
drivers from proceeding. They mocked
those of us who just wanted to get
home as they laughed and slowly
stepped in front of each vehicle.
One guy was dressed in what
appeared to be a Star Wars storm troop-
er mask. He enjoyed faking the start of
a walk across the crosswalk to get each
driver to hit the brakes.
It wasnt until the next day I learned
this was an Occupy protest aimed at the
Saltworks project. Whether Im for or
against the project is irrelevant in that
moment. Such juvenile behavior cer-
tainly didnt inform anyone it was
four or ve people just being stupid.

Health care districts
The editorial The evolving role of
health care districts in the April 18
edition of the Daily Journal is appropri-
ately titled and considerably more bal-
anced than previous columns and guest
perspectives on this subject. I believe
this writing will leave readers with a
more balanced perspective of the role
of health care districts, with two impor-
tant corrections.
First, when hospital district legisla-
tion was enacted, hospitals were the
center of the majority of a communitys
health care; need surgery, an X-ray or
lab work going to the hospital was
the only option. Unfortunately, at that
time many California communities did
not have a hospital so the legislation
allowed for local taxing authority to
raise funds to build hospitals for
improved access to care. Hospitals
ceased being the center for health care
in the late 80s and the California
Legislature recognized that by amend-
ing the hospital district law to the cur-
rent health care district law.
Secondly, I believe Assemblyman
Rich Gordon, D-Menlo Park, has been
misquoted in the article as health care
districts were not formed to meet the
needs of the indigent; that responsibili-
ty rests with individual counties as
described in Section 17000 of the
Welfare and Institutions Code.
Much is being written about the
social determinants of health, with edu-
cation and prevention efforts at the
community level being the key; seems
to me that Californias health care dis-
tricts are well positioned to be leaders
in improving the health of their com-

Letters to the editor
nce again, an entire school
community is galvanizing
because of a proposal to pos-
sibly close a school in the San Bruno
Park Elementary School District.
This time, it is the El Crystal
Elementary School community that is
having to galvanize quickly to deter-
mine how it will overcome discussion
of closing the school so its district can
make ends meet.
Earlier this month, it was the
Crestmoor Elementary School commu-
nity that pronounced its dismay at the
prospect the school would be closed
despite a committees nding that the
cost savings would not be that great.
This week, the district board is holding
a special meeting with an action item
on the possibility of closing two
schools. Trouble is, there were only a
few days notice for those in the El
Crystal Elementary School community
to gather and come up with an action
plan before tonights school board
A committee charged with the task of
making a recommendation of a possible
school closure recommended combin-
ing two schools by relocating students
at Crestmoor into Rollingwood or
Portola elementary schools since both
have space for students.
On Friday, Superintendent David
Hutt released a report recommending
two schools be closed in the succeeding
school year if the district faces a budget
decit of $250,000 or more in October
or the neighborhood enrollment drops
by 30 or more students at any of the
elementary schools compared to current
The district has been decit spending
for years and nancial challenges are at
the heart of the discussion along with
declining enrollment. The district has
yet to release its budget but could face
spending $750,000 less if the Board of
Trustees chooses to discontinue decit
spending. In addition, there is a possi-
bility that statewide taxes wont pass in
November and San Bruno schools
could lose an estimated $960,000 a
total of approximately $1.7 million.
Thats a fairly sizable amount and dis-
trict ofcials will also be discussing the
possibility of placing a $100 annual
parcel tax on the November ballot to
raise approximately $1.2 million.
These are real nancial issues that
need to be addressed, but is rattling the
nerves of two school communities the
best approach to build support for a tax
On April 11, we called for the Board
of Trustees to have an earnest discus-
sion of its nances and to hold a wider
and more creative discussion on ways
in which the district could meet its bot-
tom line. Since then, there has been one
contentious meeting in which the board
listened to parents extoll the virtues of
the Crestmoor Elementary School com-
munity and express their concern that
closing it would create more instability
for a neighborhood recovering from the
September 2010 pipeline explosion and
re. The latest recommendation of two
schools on the block for closure is a
piecemeal approach that only adds to
that feeling of uncertainty and mistrust.
Someone in a leadership position needs
to step up and change the conversation
into one that is more productive, more
specic and better for the community
as a whole. The people of San Bruno
deserve better.
Time for leadership in San Bruno schools
What are the basics?
ducation is not the filling of a pail, but the light-
ing of a fire. William Butler Yeats.
A very touching article that addresses one of the biggest
problems with education today was sent to me by a reader
of my columns. The article was written by Ruth Ann
Dandrea, a middle school teacher, for Common (March 23, 2012) for her students, and titled,
A Test You Need to Fail.
In this letter, written after
much frustration when grad-
ing the English Language
Arts Exams, she wrote, Id
been feeling, the past few
years of my 30-plus-year
tenure in public education,
that there was somebody out
there, a power of a sort, that
doesnt want you kids to be
educated. I felt a force that
wants you ignorant and pli-
able and that needs you able
to fill in the boxes and fol-
low instructions. Now Im
sure. She continued, explaining the basis of her frustra-
tion: It doesnt matter how well you write, or what you
think. All that matters, it turns out, is that you include
two facts from the reading material in every answer.
It boils down to this: Do we want students just to cite
facts or to think on their own and question? Do we want
them to regurgitate information or create and innovate? Do
we value test results that show how well kids memorize
what theyve been spoon fed so our schools look better or
do we want to develop kids who are well-rounded, who
are not only knowledgeable about the basics, but also have
had a chance to develop their creative sides, their social
skills and their feeling of self worth?
Consider what Joel Bakan wrote in his new book,
Childhood Under Siege. Lighting that fire, creating
thinking, informed, inspired and self-actualized individuals
and citizens, is the purpose of liberal education
Democracy needs informed and thinking citizens as much
as individuals need to be informed and thoughtful.
It goes back to that publication, A Nation at Risk that
in the early 1980s warned us that our children werent
measuring up, especially in science and math. Contained
therein was virtually no evidence of concern for the
humanity of the child but only for our once unchallenged
preeminence in commerce, industry, science and techno-
logical innovation being taken over by competitors
throughout the world.
In 1985, Eda LeShan wrote: Children surely need to
develop the necessary skills that can lead to intellectual
and vocational proficiency, but if we are to learn anything
from the state of the world, it ought to be that this kind of
learning is hallow and meaningless without deep concern
for life itself.
Then along came George W. Bush who became con-
vinced that our public schools needed to be held to higher
standards and the way to do that was to develop a plan to
improve achievement test scores. No Child Left Behind
turned out to be a nightmare for teachers and a straitjacket
for students. It is a rigid, poorly-thought-out, test-
obsessed, teacher-strangling set of goals to be reached and
very few suggestions on how to get there except to raise
math and reading standards all the way down through
Not to be outdone, the Obama administration came up
with its version of the same thing, Race to the Top
another directive for teachers to increase the pressure on
their students by spending most of the classroom time and
effort on bringing up reading and math scores at the
expense of the arts, science, social studies and even physi-
cal education.
How times change! Many years ago, when I was teach-
ing, the emphasis was on developing the whole child. But
thanks to the uproar about Sputnik in 1957, A Nation at
Risk, NCLB, Race to the Top and corporate interven-
tion and opportunism, our schools are becoming like facto-
ries that turn out robots to be used by corporate interests
to increase their profits. As Bakan wrote, The reasons
behind increased standardization, and the movement away
from liberal education, are varied and complex. One of
them that cannot be ignored, however, is the simple fact
that market-driven reforms make money for big business.
Bakan continues: Education must be a much grander
project than preparing children to succeed in the global
economy. It must also prepare them to understand the
global economy, to question and skeptically assess its
virtues and weaknesses, to have and pursue ideals and to
work against our apparent tendency and certain capacity,
as human societies, to be self-destructive.

Monthly smartphone bills down at AT&T
NEW YORK Hidden in AT&T Inc.s nancial state-
ments is a story that runs counter to its optimistic prot
projections: The company is making less and less from
each new smartphone subscriber.
Calculations by the Associated Press, based on AT&Ts
public statements, indicate that the average monthly bill
for its smartphone subscribers has fallen from $88 to $80
in the space of a year.
That number should be of great concern to Dallas-based
AT&T, because like most big phone companies, it is strug-
gling with a slowdown in new subscribers. Nearly all
adults and many kids in the U.S. already have cell-
phones. AT&Ts executives have been touting smartphones
as the solution, since the devices require consumers to pay
for data use in addition to voice calls. Smartphone sub-
scribers, therefore, pay more. So moving customers from
regular phones to smartphones will keep boosting revenue,
AT&T has said.
But an analysis of AT&Ts own gures indicates that
smartphone bills have shrunk by 9 percent over a year,
challenging the companys picture of long-term revenue

Muscular U.S. corporate earnings and
higher spirits in Europe propelled U.S.
stocks higher Tuesday.
Five of the 30 big companies that
make up the Dow Jones industrial aver-
age rose more than 1.5 percent. AT&T
led the gains after reporting better-than-
expected prot. Verizon, AT&Ts main
rival, was close behind. 3M rose sharply
after delivering an impressive quarterly
report. GE and DuPont rounded out the
list of top gainers.
Traders punished Apple after AT&T
said it activated far fewer of Apples
iPhones. Apple fell two percent, drag-
ging the Nasdaq composite average to a
lower close. Apple shares recovered the
days losses several times over in after-
hours trading after the company
announced another record quarterly
prot that easily beat analysts forecasts.

Earnings reports are blowing the tops
of analysts expectations, providing tem-
porary relief for markets roiled by fears
about Europe, said Sam Stovall, chief
equity strategist with nancial-data rm
S&P Capital IQ. He said analysts had
expected only a half-percent profit
increase for the S&P 500 this quarter.
Based on the results so far, he said, the
gain could be ten times bigger.
These are legitimately strong results,
and in retrospect, the bar was set too
low, Stovall said.
The gains for blue chips were broad.
Only ve Dow components fell, led by
Wal-Mart Stores. The worlds biggest
retailer is reeling from reports over the
weekend that top company officials
knew about widespread bribery of for-
eign ofcials.
European stocks rallied into the close
a day after one of their worst drops in
months. Mondays sell-off followed
fears that decit-cutting deals by some
European nations might unravel.

atmosphere lifted, interest rates on
Spanish bonds already in circulation
declined. Frances CAC-40 index closed
up 2.3 percent. Germanys DAX rose

NEW YORK Apple Inc., the
worlds most valuable company,
trumped skeptics once again by report-
ing blowout iPhone sales.
Apple says it sold 35 million iPhones
in the January-to-March quarter, almost
twice as many as it sold a year ago and
above analyst expectations.
Apples stock was down 2 percent at
the close of regular trading, as investors
believed phone companies had reined in
iPhone sales. In extended trading, the
stock rallied $40.02, or 7.1 percent, to
Theyre delivering the goods much
stronger than even the biggest bulls
would have thought, said Brian White,
an analyst with Topeka Capital Markets.
Its Apple fever at its nest.
Net income in the companys scal
second quarter was $11.6 billion, or
$12.30 per share. That was nearly dou-
ble the net income of $6 billion, or $6.40
per share, a year ago.
Analysts polled by FactSet were
expecting earnings of $10.07 per share
for the latest quarter, Apples scal sec-
Revenue was $39.2 billion, up 59 per-
cent from a year ago. Analysts were
expecting $37 billion.
IPad sales came in below analyst
expectations, at 11.8 million units. But
that was still two and a half times as
many as it sold in the same quarter a
year ago. Apple launched a new iPad
model in the quarter, and supplies are
still tight. White believes short supplies
of the new high-resolution screen are to
Mac sales were also slightly below
expectations, at 4 million. That was up 7
percent from last year. Meanwhile, the
overall PC market grew about 2 percent.
Windows PC makers are now hoping
Windows 8 will give them a better
chance at competing with Apple, both in
PCs and tablets. Intel CEO Paul Otellini
last week said he believes PCs and
tablets will merge into one light device
with a keyboard and a touch-sensitive
Apple CEO Tim Cook dismissed that
idea on a conference call with analysts
Tuesday. Tablets and PCs work best as
separate devices, playing to their own
strengths, he said.
You can converge a toaster and a
refrigerator, but those things are proba-
bly not going to be pleasing to the user,
he said.
Cook also dismissed concerns that
phone companies arent satised subsi-
dizing each new iPhone by hundreds of
dollars, and are trying to curb iPhone
upgrades by their subscribers. AT&T
Inc.s Tuesday morning earnings report
provided signs that the company is doing
just that.
IPhone is the best smartphone on the
planet to entice the customer who is cur-
rently using a traditional mobile phone
to upgrade to a smartphone. Cook said.

NEW YORK Americans con-
dence in the economy was resilient in
April despite rising job cuts and falling
home values.
The Conference Board, a private
research group, said on Tuesday that its
Consumer Condence Index is at 69.2,
down slightly from a revised 69.5 in
March. Economists were expecting a
reading of 70, according to a FactSet
poll of analysts. The current level is
below Februarys 71.6, which is the
highest level it has been in about a year.
Consumer confidence is widely
watched because consumer spending
accounts for 70 percent of economic
activity. The current level is signicantly
below the 90 reading that indicates a
healthy economy. But its well above its
all-time low of 25.3 in February 2009.
I am much relieved, said Mark
Vitner, an economist at Wells Fargo
Securities. I thought we would see a
large drop. It shows that consumers are
tuning out the bad news.
Economists are paying close attention
to consumers behavior because the U.S.
economy is at a critical juncture. New
reports that show rising layoffs and
slowing home sales are raising concerns
that the economic recovery is facing a
spring slowdown for the third straight
year. The stock market rally also has lost
steam in recent weeks amid renewed
worries about the European nancial cri-
sis and the economy at home.
While condence was pretty steady in
April, The Conference Boards report,
which is based on a survey conducted
from April 1 through April 12 with about
500 randomly selected people nation-
wide, underscored how Americans

SAN JOSE Freddy Sanchez is
not having any trouble seeing the
In his rst at bats of the season
with the Giants Single-A team in
San Jose Monday night, Sanchez
backed up the talk that his shoulder
injury hasnt affected his swing. In
his rst of four scheduled rehab
starts at Municipal Stadium this
week, the contact throughout a 1-
for-3 night was loud. His rst time
up, he drove a soaring y out to the
left-eld warning track. In his next
at bat, he smoked a worm-burner
back up the middle for a single.
I hadnt seen a live pitch in a
week, Sanchez said. So, I came
out just hoping to make contact, to
be honest with you. This is my
spring training.
But, once again, the bat is not the
issue. Its the throwing arm. And,
debuting as a designated hitter does-
nt help dispel the concerns that the
Giants World Series hero of two
years ago is damaged beyond repair.
According to Sanchez, Giants
manager Bruce Bochy communicat-
ed to him that the rehab timetable is
roughly three weeks. Thats the
soonest he could rejoin the big club.
But Sanchezs true test is yet to
come. Since dislocating his shoul-

The race for the Peninsula Athletic League
Ocean Division title just got a little bit tighter.
Woodside, which came into Tuesdays
matchup with Aragon with a perfect 7-0 mark
in division play, was thumped by the Dons 10-
Aragon, which started PAL play with three
straight losses, has now won ve straight in
league contests.
Its coming together at the right time, said
Aragon manager Lenny Souza. Im really
proud of these guys. We lost our rst three
games in league and we havent lost since.
Aragon (5-3 PAL Ocean, 10-9 overall) was
helped by seven Woodside (7-1, 13-8) errors,
turning a pitchers duel into an Aragon rout as
the Dons scored nine of their 10 runs over the
nal two innings, including an eight-run fth.
Of Aragons 10 runs, only ve were earned.
It wasnt good, said Woodside manager
Tim Faulkner. Just one of those days.
Before the Dons late-game eruption, the
game was a battle between the two starting
pitchers Woodsides Garrett Coe and
Aragons James Egan. Neither guy gave up
much and when they did run into trouble, they
wiggled out of it. Both escaped bases-loaded
jams in the second inning. Egan got a strike-
out and groundout to get out of the inning
unscathed, while Coe held the Dons to just
one unearned run.
Garrett pitched well, Faulkner said.
Coe worked four innings, giving up the one
run on just three hits.
He had that really big, slow [curveball],
Souza said. There was a big gap in his
change of speed.
When Coe was lifted before the start of the
fth inning, the Aragon bats nally got going.
The Dons sent 12 batters to the plate in the
fth, scoring eight runs on ve hits, while the
Wildcats committed three errors. Clean up
hitter Aldo Severson snapped a 1-1 tie with an
opposite-field single to right to drive in
Dons down Woodside
Aragons James Egan pitched a complete game ve-hitter as the Dons handed Woodside its
rst PAL loss of the season 10-1.

There is a resurgence of sorts happening
inside the Hillsdale High School pool.
A year after nishing in the middle of the
pack in the Peninsula Athletic League, the
Knights are quickly ascending up the ranks.
At the forefront of this rebirth has been the
swimming of a couple of young stars, one of
which is Javier Rosas.
The Hillsdale sophomore is the poster child
for a Knights boys team hovering near the top
of the Ocean Division standings. His talent
was display last week in Hillsdales nal
home meet of the season against El Camino.
Rosas won four events, two individual and
two relay, in leading the Knights past the
Colts 98-69.
Javier did dominate, said Hillsdale head
coach Mike Amaya. In the 200 IM, he won
by almost a pool length.
Rosas time in the 200 IM was special at
2:07.28, the sophomore qualified for the
Central Coast Section meet in a pair of weeks.
Rosas also had a personal best in the 100
back stroke, breaking the one minute mark for
the rst time in his career at 59.65 which
is only a second behind the CCS qualifying
For his efforts, Rosas is the Daily Journal
Athlete of the Week.
Javier has a classic swimmer physique,
Amaya said. He looks like Michael Phelps.
And the difference between his freshman year
and his sophomore year is his development
physically and mentally. I look forward to
great things as he continues to get bigger and
stronger as a junior and a senior.
Rosas surely has the talent to be special in
the PAL. The 200 IM was one of four victories
for the young man who swims for the San
Mateo Otters swim club. His 200 medley
relay team (Erik Garcia, Vicente Chisholm,
Daniel Amaya) took rst with a time of

wired so he could listen to opposing coaches
Its absolutely ludicrous. Its impossible,
Vitt said Tuesday. Ive never heard of it
before. Thats something from Star Wars.
When I rst heard something about it being a

of New Orleans. Vitt himself will have to
serve a six-game suspension for his role in the
cash-for-big hits system the Saints ran from
2009-11, and Loomis will be out for eight
The bounty probe is unrelated to the inves-

agent in charge at the FBIs New Orleans eld
I thought that was an excellent opportuni-
ty to share resources to see if federal or state
wiretapping laws were in fact broken,
Edmonson said by phone from Baton Rouge.
Its important for the public to know these

oughly, expeditiously, but fairly look into
whether any laws have been broken. If they
have, well sit down with the district attorney

No matter what language you
speak, there is something universal-
ly beautiful about a pitching master-
San Mateos Alejandro Meza can
attest to that. Ten months after arriv-
ing from Mexico and donning a
Bearcats baseball uniform, the
right-hander pitched the game of his
career, shutting out South San
Francisco 2-0.
Yes, it was the best [Ive
pitched], Meza said, and the truth
is, at rst I was a little nervous
because [South City] is a good team
and I wanted to pitch well.
Meza did that and made it look
impressively easy. No. 6 pitched a
complete game, allowing only three
hits and walking one. It took Meza
73 minutes and 90 pitches to do
away with the Warriors.
This is the best Ive seen him
pitch, said San Mateo manager
Jesse Velez. He threw a lot of
strikes, the curve ball was working,
the fast ball was working.
Meza had a no-hitter going until
the top of the fth when Gregorio
Jimenez singled up the middle.
Maligi Malula got a base knock and
South City had runners on rst and
second with one out.
But Meza reared backed and
notched back to back strikeouts to
get out of his only real jam of the
South City starter Joe Marcucci
was just as good as Meza in a lot of
ways. Unfortunately for No. 21, he
was the victim of a couple bad
bounces early on.
San Mateo did all their scoring in
the rst inning.
Meza led off with a double down
the left eld line. After a yout to
center, Taylor Sanft singled to right
center. Meza couldnt decipher if
the ball was going to fall or not,
froze between second and third and
seemed content to just take one
base. But the ball skipped under the
right elders glove allowing Meza
to score easily.
An out later, Drew Carreon hit a
grounder to second base that took a
wild hop to the second basemans
left and into right eld. The miscue
allowed Sanft to score San Mateos
second run.
From then on, Marcucci would
settle down nicely, holding the
Bearcats offense to just one hit.
Unfortunately for Marcucci, he
and his teammates could not gure
out Meza.
The curve ball was working well
today, Meza said, and the fastball
was good as well.
We caught the ball, didnt make
an errors. We made the plays, Velez
After the threat in the fth, South
City put another runner on via the
hit in the sixth with two outs. But
Ryan Mohr was left stranded.
Meza struck out six.
The win is the second in a row for
San Mateo, who on Monday shelled
Jefferson of Daly City 19-1.
The Bearcats pounded out 18 hits
in that game. On Tuesday, they
managed three.
The win moves San Mateo to
above .500 in Peninsula Athletic
League Ocean Division play with a
5-4 record.
San Mateos Meza shuts down South City
The College of San Mateo baseball team overcame a three-
run rst inning by Mission College and stormed ahead to a 12-
3 victory.
The win means CSM is the outright champion of the Coast
Conference North Division once again.
Despite the three runs in the rst inning, Dylan Nelson
picked up the win for the Bulldogs. Nelson went ve innings
allowing ve hits and striking out ve.
Andrew Herrera, Parker Swindell and Joseph Armstrong
sealed the deal for CSM, which is now 26-9 and 18-3 in Coast
Conference play.
The CSM season nale is Thursday at Galivan College in
It took the Bulldogs four innings to tie the score at three.
CSM cashed in on NIck Davenports leadoff triple in the third
to make it 3-1 and in the fourth, Cody Zimmerman took one
for the team to start the rally with one out. Jarrett Costa drove
in Zimmerman with a double to left. Trevor Craig followed
that with an RBI single up the middle to make it 3-3.
CSM took its rst lead in the fth with a two-out rally fueled
by a pair of Mission errors the latter, a throwing error,
allowed Mark Hurley to score all the way from rst base.
The Bulldogs put the game away in the sixth.
Craig and Bo Walter walked to lead off the frame. After a
Davenport sacrice bunt, Armstrong singled to right eld and
cashed in on those two ducks to make it 6-3.
Brandon Defazio singled to center eld after that and a Paul
Hernandez walk loaded the bases. ZImmerman collected the
game-changing hit, a double that cleared the based and gave
him three more RBI.
Zimmerman leads the Bulldogs with 29 runs batted in for
the year. Hes also hitting .340 and is slugging .515.
CSM added two more in the seventh and another in the
eighth. The scoring in the seventh was highlighted by
Defazios two-run home run to left eld his second of the

Caada 9, Hartnell 4
The Colts picked up their 15th conference win Tuesday,
cashing in on another huge day at the plate by Zachary Turner
for a 9-4 win over Hartnell.
The win means Caada stays locked on second place in the
Coast Conference Pacic Divison, a game ahead of Cabrillo.
Ohlone College leads the division by four games with one to
Turner went 3 for 4, all his hits being of the extra base vari-
ety including a home run which gives him 12 for the season.
It appears Turner is on his way to winning the divisions
Triple Crown. He lead the division in average (.380), home
runs (12) and runs batted in (55).
The Colts jumped out to a 4-0 lead by the fourth inning. It
was then that Hartnell plated a run.
Before then, Turner doubled in the rst to pick up an RBI
and Alex Sortwell added another on a elders choice.
In the third, Steven Knudson hit a sacrice play to center
that scored Nick McHugh and Dylan Wisthoff picked up an
RBI on a ground out to the pitcher.
Caada nickled and dimed their way the rest of the after-
noon. While the Colts and Hartnell accounted for 11 hits a
piece, Caadas extra base hits were the difference.
Turner homered in the fth. Back to back doubles by
Knudson and Sortwell plated runs in the seventh.

CINCINNATI Pablo Sandoval extended
his hitting streak to one game from the Giants
record. Other than that, very little went right
for San Francisco.
And manager Bruce Bochy was fuming at
the end over an inside pitch that drew a warn-

A lot of the drama had been taken out of the
game when Cincinnatis Sam LeCure came on
to pitch the ninth and got Bochy riled by near-
ly hitting his catcher.

ing him with a hit in each of the Giants 17
games. Its the second-longest hitting streak
to open a season in franchise history, one

Dan Otero, who let the
game get away as the Reds
batted around.
The kids got two
weeks, three weeks in the
big leagues, Bochy said.
Hes trying to get
through the inning, trying
to survive. Hes not trying to hit anybody.
Posey was surprised by the inside pitch. He
then homered.
I dont know, he said, asked if he thought
LeCure was trying to hit him. I dont know if
it was on purpose or not.
Latos (1-2) came to the Reds in a four-
player deal with San Diego and acknowl-
edged trying too hard to impress his new
team. He was back on his game against the
Giants, allowing only four singles.
Phillips hit a two-run homer in the first
inning off Matt Cain (1-1) after being
called out on a foul tip. The umpires decid-
ed the tipped ball hit the dirt, giving him
another swing.
The Giants have lost six straight and 11 of
15 at Great American Ball Park.
Cain was in one of the best stretches of his
career when he loosened up on a cool, breezy
evening in Cincinnati. The right-hander had
thrown 18 shutout innings in his last two
starts, two innings shy of his career best. In
those two starts, only four runners reached
A foul tip led to the end of his scoreless
Drew Stubbs doubled in the rst inning.
Phillips worked the count to 2-2, then tipped a
pitch that Posey caught by the dirt. Carapazza
called Phillips out, but rst base umpire Gerry
Davis indicated that the foul tip hit the ground
before reaching the catchers mitt.
Posey raised his mitt to try to show that he
caught the tip. He didnt argue when the
umpires decided the ball hit the ground.
I wasnt sure if it hit the ground or not,
Posey said. I think it actually did.
Given the reprieve, Phillips homered to cen-
ter on the next pitch.
Instead of having a quick, scoreless inning,
Cain wound up throwing 38 pitches in the
rst. He got into a rhythm after that inning.
Obviously thats taxing to the pitch count,
but physically I felt ne, said Cain, who
threw 116 pitches in 6 1-3 innings. The rst
inning didnt bother me.
Ryan Ludwick hit a solo homer off him in
the seventh, when the Reds batted around for
six runs. Jay Bruce and Scott Rolen each had
two-run doubles off Otero.
Latos win was his latest notable moment
against the Giants. After San Francisco elimi-
nated San Diego from contention in 2010, he
signed three baseballs with I Hate SF! in the
offseason as part of a fundraiser for major
league players alumni association, insisting it
was in good humor.

SAN JOSE The players packed up their lockers, took their
exit physicals and departed for the summer far earlier than the San
Jose Sharks had the previous two seasons.
A rst-round playoff exit after two straight runs to the Western
Conference nal has left general manager Doug Wilson to gure
out what went wrong during an inconsistent season in which a tal-
ented team rarely seemed to re on all cylinders.
The frustration is that we did not have a good year. We were
chasing it at times, Wilson said Tuesday. Were going to look at
all aspects of our team. There are four or ve other top teams
going through what were going through, but I dont even care
about them.
The Sharks said their goodbyes three days after being eliminat-
ed in ve games by the St. Louis Blues during a topsy-turvy rst
round of the Western Conference playoffs. San Jose had the same
fate as Detroit, Chicago and Vancouver as the only teams to make
the Western Conference nal the past three years all got bounced
in the rst round.
That has raised what seem like annual questions in San Jose
about whether the window of opportunity for Joe Thornton,
Patrick Marleau and Co. to win the Stanley Cup with the Sharks
is closing.
You want high expectations, Thornton said. You want to be
known as a team that can win every year. The reality we have is
we have a chance to win every year. You embrace that and you
want it, but unfortunately we just couldnt get it done this year.
Wilson now is trying to gure out why. He met with coach Todd
McLellans staff and the players on Tuesday as part of that evalu-
ation. He will then meet with the ownership group to present a
plan for moving forward.
Wilson would not commit to McLellan returning for a fth sea-
son as coach until after that is completed, although McLellan said
he expects to be back.
One of the most obvious areas for improvement was a penalty-
kill unit that ranked second-worst in the league in the regular sea-
son and allowed six goals in 18 chances to the Blues.
It was also a major problem in 2010-11 and only got worse
despite efforts to revamp it with personnel and approach.
Our penalty-killing was awful, Wilson said. Its been last in
the league the last two years and that impacts you in the big way.
Theres the special teams differential, but it also makes you less
aggressive because you cant afford to take any penalties. So thats
an area that we certainly have to address.
Wilson tried to address it by acquiring proven penalty killers in
Dominic Moore and Daniel Winnik before the trade deadline.
While there were signs of improvement late in the regular season,
the team reverted in the nal two games of the regular season and
against the Blues.
There will also be the questions of personnel. The teams top six
forwards, top four defensemen and goalie Antti Niemi are all
under contract for next season. Unless Wilson decides to deal one
of his major pieces, most of the changes will be on the edges as
the Sharks seek better penalty killing, more depth and consisten-
The team has six potential unrestricted free agents in forwards
Winnik, Moore, Brad Winchester and Torrey Mitchell, and
defensemen Jim Vandermeer and Colin White.

walked and reached on a bunt single, respec-
tively, to start the inning.
Later, Josh Ehrlich picked up an RBI, as did
Christian Larsen, who ared a single over
Woodsides drawn in ineld. Ian Barrie fol-
lowed with an RBI and Ching capped the
uprising with a two-run single to left.
The approaches (at the plate) got batter as
the game went along, Souza said. That was
the difference.
That was more than enough for Egan, who
went the distance in picking up the win for the
Dons. He pitched seven innings, giving up just
one run as he scattered ve hits and struck out
James Egan is a baller, Souza said. You
give up one run, you have a chance to win a
ball game.
Egan made only one real mistake and
Woodsides Brad Degnan took advantage, hit-
ting the rst pitch of the fth inning over the
fence in right-center eld to tie the game at 1.
Aragon took a 1-0 in the bottom of the sec-
ond inning. Severson and Jonathan
Engelmann led off the inning with back-to-
back singles and both moved up a base on
Ehrlichs sacrice bunt. Larsen reached on an
error and the Dons scored when Barries y
ball to right eld was muffed for an error and
an unearned run.
The Dons tacked on the nal run of the
game in the bottom of the sixth when Fabian
Contreras scored on Alan Katzs sacrice y
to left.

Javier knows when he has to move, he has
to move, Amaya said. And as part of the med-
ley relay team, as the butterier, there might
not be anyone better.
One of the things Javier does really well is
a running relay start, Amaya said. Javier has
mastered that running relay start to the point
that I feel he has one of the best relay starts
Ive ever seen.
While Rosas continues to grow in the pool,
Amaya said hes making strides outside of it
as well.
I think Javier is very charismatic and that
charisma denitely inltrates the rest of the
team because Javier is there, Amaya said.
He works so hard in practice. You dont see
these things when you come to the meet but
when you have a swimmer like Javier, in the
pool, swimming so fast, every single other
person around him becomes motivated and
maybe believes they can do something they
didnt think they can do.
That charisma really inspires a team and
his leadership is apparent in practice. He has
been a leader in practice.
Javier is a very outgoing person. And
because of that outward personality, he a very
strong inspiration and motivator for the other
swimmers on the team.

OAKLAND Bob Myers showed up for his
rst game as the new general manager of the
Golden State Warriors wearing the same yellow tie
with diagonal blue stripes that owner Joe Lacob
also had knotted around his neck.
The unplanned fashion gaffe left both a bit a
red-faced, at least at rst. The Stefano Ricci tie was
a gift by the owner purchased months earlier by
his ancee, Nicole Curran, who apparently bought
one for each.
See, Myers joked, were already on the same
Golden States new management team certainly
looks the part.
Whether they produce enough wins is still to be
The Warriors ofcially promoted Myers to gen-
eral manager Tuesday night, speeding up the plan
laid out by Lacob when he hired the former sports
agent as assistant GM last summer. Former gener-
al manager Larry Riley will remain with the
organization as director of scouting, and Myers
will assume all responsibilities for making out the
Lacob hinted that he originally planned to wait
another season but felt no reason to put off the
move any longer.
Id say the one thing that we probably learned
is, when you call the Warriors, its a little confus-
ing, Lacob said. A lot of voices, and I think some
people pointed that out. So I think this cleans up
the lines of authority, the lines of communications,
a little bit. He has proved hes very capable of
doing that job.
Golden States management is not all the differ-
ent than the one already in place.
Myers joined the Warriors last April as part of
the new owners reconstructed front ofce. Riley,
who spent the past four seasons in the front ofce
after working as an assistant coach to NBA career
wins leader Don Nelson, was one of the few
remaining members of Lacobs gutted Golden
State management.

play baseball has been derailed by his inability to
throw. Its only as recently as the outset of spring
training that the second baseman could even play
This week, hes hoping to take the critical step
in returning to San Franciscos lineup from the
surgery he underwent last season to repair the torn
labrum in his throwing shoulder. After taking
pregame grounders yesterday, Sanchez is tenta-
tively scheduled to make his rst start at second
base today.
Sometimes it just takes a little longer to get
warmed up, Sanchez said. But Ive been throw-
ing a lot and its just a matter of it holding up
throughout the whole game.
Reality of labrum surgery
San Jose manager Andy Skeels is no stranger to
the day-to-day of managing a player going
through shoulder rehabilitation. Former Giants
prospect Thomas Neal, who underwent shoulder
surgery in 2007, played for Skeels for three years
at three different levels.
Youre mindful, especially in the minor
leagues, to try to make sure that injuries dont
become recurring, Skeels said. So you try to
handle them and take care of them to make sure
they are fully taken care of.
It was a long road back for Neal, whose injury
did become recurring some years later. Neal did
get his career back on track hitting .337 with 22
home runs at San Jose in 2009 to earn team MVP
honors but the shoulder still hampers him. In
his rst spring training with the Indians this sea-
son, after being traded by the Giants last year for
veteran shortstop Orlando Cabrera, Neal had to
take it upon himself to report to camp early and
work on strengthening his throwing shoulder.
It was something that just wasnt right all sea-
son and cost me some time last year, Neal
said. Now its a matter of staying on top of it and
making sure it doesnt pop up again.
This is the reality for Neal ve years after
labrum surgery and he is 24. Sanchez is 10
years older and not even a year removed from sur-
gery, having gone under the knife Aug. 2, 2011.
For big-league guys, I think its a slightly dif-
ferent deal, Skeels said. Everybody in San
Francisco really wants Freddy to get healthy as
fast as he can. At the same time, you cant get out
in front of what natures own schedule happens to
be. So, its that tough push-and-pull between
wanting to get him out there as fast as you can and
also making sure he doesnt get out there before
hes really ready.
Fanfare for rehab appearance
One things for sure: Giants fans are really ready
for him to return. When Sanchez was announced
for his rst at bat Monday, he received a heartfelt
ovation from the upwards of 1,400 in attendance
at Municipal Stadium. It was by far the biggest
ovation for any single player in San Jose this sea-
Even early on, the fanfare was evident. During
batting practice, one autograph seeker asked every
player in a Giants jersey if he was Freddy
Sanchez. Catcher Dan Burkhart nally stopped
and signed for the excited fan. It can neither be
conrmed nor denied that Burkhart signed
Sanchezs name.
For many San Jose baseball fans, rehab appear-
ances are often their only chance to glimpse the
major leagues. Dedicated San Jose season-ticket
holders Chuck and Esther Moore have been to
every game this season. They dont often make the
trip to San Francisco. In fact, the only big-league
game they attended last season was when they
shuttled to AT&T Park as part of San Jose Giants
Its nice to see a major league player here,
Esther Moore said. For the kids, its probably
more exciting. But for us, we saw Buster Posey
and Brandon Belt play here (as prospects). Thats
whats really exciting for us.
Susie Fager, a San Jose season-ticket holder
since 1993, rarely misses a game either. She was
surprised upon her arrival at Municipal Stadium
Monday night that Sanchez would be in the line-
up and was reminded of her personal favorite
rehab appearance in recent years: Brian Wilsons
three-game stint with San Jose in 2007.
Yeah, without his beard, Fager said. I hate
that thing.

Chelsea reaches Champions League final
BARCELONA, Spain Lionel
Messi walked off the Camp Nou
pitch in tears, as one of the most
dominant eras in European club soc-
cer came to a crashing halt.
He wasnt the only one shaking
his head in disbelief.
Despite going a man and two
goals down in the rst half, Chelsea
pulled off one of the unlikeliest
comebacks in Champions League
history Tuesday, earning a 2-2 draw
against Barcelona. That sent the
London club into the nal 3-2 on
aggregate and eliminated the
defending champion.
For the second time in two weeks,
Chelsea withstood a never-ending
onslaught from the Spanish power-
house and displayed ruthless ef-
ciency when rare opportunities
nally presented themselves.
Its a historical night for the club.
I believe we deserve to be in the
nal, said Chelseas interim man-
ager Roberto Di Matteo, whose
team will face either Bayern
Munich or Real Madrid in the May
19 nal at Munichs Allianz Arena.
We had a difcult season, but we
seem to always get something spe-
cial out when we need to. Thats
part of the DNA of these players.
For Barcelona, the result could
mark the end of one of the most suc-
cessful spells in club soccer. The
team was looking for a third
Champions League title in four sea-
sons, and this loss came right on the
heels of a 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid
that all but ended its hopes of a
fourth straight league crown.
With coach Pep Guardiola yet to
decide whether to stay at the club, it
means his reign could end without a
major crown this year although
the Copa del Rey is still up for grabs
as a consolation.
It hurts to lose this way because
we were better and we gave it our
all, said Barcelona midelder Cesc
Fabregas. We needed the perfect
game, but we werent perfect.

f anchovies gross you out, know this
compared to what people ate before
there were anchovies, theyre practical-
ly cake and ice cream.
Because until about the 16th century there
were no anchovies as we know them today.
That is, small silvery sh that are boned, salt
cured and packed in oil.
Instead, there was garum the juice of
salted and fermented sh guts. Garum lost
favor about 500 years ago when people
learned how to make anchovies.
Cant imagine why.
Anchovies, however, are not a singular
sh. Most cuisines around the world have
their own anchovy, most of which tend to
be variants of one variety of sh, a relative of
the herring.
But given the ick-factor some people suf-
fer, why eat them? Easy. They are avor
bombs that lend serious Wow! to whatever
they are added to. And the good news is that
the avor they add isnt even a little shy.
Heres why. After months of salt curing,
the dominant avors in
anchovies are from
enzymes and good bac-
teria, not the esh itself
(of which there is little).
The result is an intense
blend of fatty, salty,
savory, meaty, even a
bit cheesy.
Even better, when
you cook anchovies
they dissolve, leaving
behind a massive savory
avor but no evidence
that any sh were harmed in the making.
Anchovies are widely used in the cuisines
of Spain, Portugal, Italy and France. In
Turkey they are so prized they have inspired
volumes of poetry, even folk dances. That is
some serious anchovy love.
Even if you dont like them dumped on
pizzas, chances are youve eaten plenty of
anchovies; they are critical for Caesar salad
and olive tapenade.
Youll generally nd anchovies alongside
the Italian foods or with the tuna. Most vari-
eties are packed in oil in cans or jars. Some
delis also sell salt-packed anchovies, but
these sometimes need to be boned and
always should be rinsed.
Many grocers also sell anchovy paste,
which is ground anchovies blended with oil
and sometimes seasonings. The pastes are
ne in a pinch, but whole anchovies tend to
have better avor. Unopened cans can be
stored at room temperature for a year;
opened cans can be refrigerated for a week
or two.
Try anchovies in this recipe for atbread
pizza brushed with anchovy oil. And for
more ideas, check out the Off the Beaten
Aisle column over on Food Network:

U.S. asparagus
industry sees
slight recovery
By Shannon Dininny
PASCO, Wash. Asparagus farmers
crushed for decades by a ood of South
American imports have begun to expand pro-
duction again in the hope that healthy eating
trends and demand for homegrown vegetables
will help bolster prices and sales of their
U.S. asparagus production is still only a
third of what it was 25 years ago, thanks in
large part to a pair of federal policies meant to
combat drug trafcking and improve econom-
ic trade. A 1991 law exempted some crops,
including asparagus, from tariffs to help
Andean countries expand their alternatives to
drug crops a boon to fresh and frozen
asparagus production in Peru. Three years
later, the North American Free Trade
Agreement gradually reduced taxes on aspara-
gus, boosting shipments from Mexico.
California, the leading producer, has seen
acreage decline by a third since 1990. In No.
2 Washington state, production collapsed
from more than 100 million pounds that year
to just 17 million pounds in 2010. It recovered
slightly last year, and strong prices and new
varieties that hold the promise of bigger har-
vests have farmers hopeful again.
We probably hit our bottom, and now,
were nally starting to bounce back, said
Bill Middleton, 62, who operates an asparagus
nursery and grows asparagus near Pasco in
Washingtons Columbia River basin.
Prices are good. Demand is good. Its too
early to tell, he said, but the indications are
that well have a strong year.
For an industry on the verge of disappear-
ing, 2010 marked a rock-bottom year, said
Alan Schreiber of the Washington Asparagus
Commission. But in the past two years, he
said, asparagus growers have halted promo-
tions early because demand for fresh aspara-
gus has been so high that its all been sold.
To meet that demand, Washington farmers
planted more new asparagus elds this year
than the state has seen in a decade. In all, they
are expected to plant slightly more than 6,000
acres, an improvement from two years ago,
when they planted about 5,500 but nowhere
near the 30,000 acres planted in 1990.
After a decade of malaise, retrenchment,
maybe even collapse I dont know what
you want to call it were seeing planting,

Gluten-free and lower-carb wasnt
the goal, but thats what I got.
I was making dinner and all I real-
ly wanted was a fast, lling and easy
chicken something-or-other. I was
thinking chicken and refried bean
burritos, but realized too late that I
didnt have any tortillas. Rather than
abandon the idea, I went ahead with-
out. Instead of using the chicken as
the lling, I pounded it at and used
it as the wrap itself.
The result was delicious, versatile
and simple. Though I used refried
beans and cheese as my lling, theres
no reason you couldnt substitute the
vegetables or whole beans of your
choice. And while I used regular sour
cream and mozzarella, you could
make this dinner low-fat simply by
switching to those varieties of dairy.
Best yet, this dish also is easily
prepped ahead of time. The night
before or the morning of, follow the
recipe right up to the point of cook-
ing, then cover in plastic wrap and
refrigerate until ready to cook. Just be
sure to use kitchen twine or tooth-
picks to hold the wraps together so
they dont unroll during the day.
Start to nish: 45 minutes
Servings: 4
2 boneless, skinless chicken
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and ground black pepper, to
15-ounce can refried beans
1 teaspoon hot sauce (more or less
to taste)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Tomato salsa, to garnish
Chopped fresh cilantro, to garnish
Sour cream
Heat the oven to 350 F. Coat a
rimmed baking sheet with cooking
Carefully slice each chicken breast
in half horizontally to create 2 thin
llets. One at a time, place each llet
between sheets of plastic wrap and
pound with a meat mallet or rolling
pin until evenly thin and about twice
as large. Sprinkle both sides of each
piece of chicken with lime juice, then
season with salt and pepper. Arrange
on the prepared baking sheet, then set
In a medium bowl, mix together
the refried beans, hot sauce, cumin,
paprika and cheese. Spread a quarter
of the mixture evenly over each llet.
Roll each llet into a tight bundle.
If needed, the bundles can be tied
with kitchen twine or pinned with
toothpicks to keep from unrolling.
Spritz each bundle with cooking
spray, then bake for 25 minutes, or
until a thermometer inserted at the
center of the bundles reads 165 F.
Serve topped with salsa, cilantro and
sour cream.
No tortillas needed in these easy wraps with kick

Spinach and artichoke dip sounds like
it should be a virtuous treat. After all, its
loaded with vegetables.
Trouble is, its usually more mayon-
naise and cheese than spinach and arti-
choke. So we decided to see if we could
come up with a version that isnt so out
of sync with healthy eating.
First order of business was to nix the
mayonnaise. But, of course, we wanted
something that had a great creamy tex-
ture and that could be heated. Greek
style yogurt blended with low-fat cream
cheese (Neufchatel) worked beautifully.
It even added a subtle tang which we
enhanced with some lemon zest for a
nice spring avor prole. Some fresh
herbs took it ever further.
Next up, dealing with the cheese. We
handled the inner gooey-ness with the
aforementioned cream cheese. But often
there also is a pile of cheese or bread-
crumbs (or both) on the top. After its
broiled, we wanted that textural contrast
and the toastiness that comes with it.
We found that crushed and seasoned
whole-grain crackers worked well. Just
note that different varieties of crackers
can have widely varying nutrition. So be
sure to read the labels carefully to select
a whole-grain cracker with modest
amounts of fat and calories. Aim for
around 100 to 120 calories and 4 grams
of fat per serving. Youll also want about
3 to 4 grams each of protein and ber.
Lastly and most importantly
was upping the amount of spinach and
artichoke. We went we canned arti-
chokes for ease. They also are available
frozen. Either way, be sure to get the
variety in water, not oil. Fresh baby
spinach got a quick saute with onion and
garlic before being added. Serve the
warm dip with whole-wheat pita chips,
baked tortilla chips or veggie sticks.
Start to nish: 20 minutes
Servings: 8
1 ounce (1 serving) whole-grain
crackers, crushed
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
6 ounces plain nonfat Greek yogurt
4 ounces low-fat cream cheese
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano
2 teaspoons minced fresh mint
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small yellow onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
5-ounce package fresh baby spinach
14-ounce can artichoke hearts, lightly
Heat the oven to 400 F. Coat a small
casserole or gratin dish with cooking
In a small bowl, combine the cracker
crumbs, garlic powder, onion powder
and Parmesan. Set aside.
In a food processor, combine the
yogurt, cream cheese, lemon zest,
oregano, mint, salt and pepper. Pulse
until smooth.
In a large skillet over medium-high,
heat the oil. Add the onion and garlic
and saute until soft, about 5 minutes.
Add the spinach and cook until soft and
any liquid has evaporated, about another
5 minutes. Remove from the heat and
stir in the artichokes and the yogurt mix-
ture. Spoon into the prepared dish.
Sprinkle the cracker crumb mixture
over the dip and bake for 10 to 15 min-
utes, or until hot. Serve warm.
A lighter take on a classic dip
LivingSocial launching
takeout, delivery service
By Barbara Ortutay
NEW YORK Throw away all those soy sauce-stained
takeout menus.
Online deals site LivingSocial is unveiling an Internet food-
ordering service. Hungry customers will be able to use it to
order tacos, burgers or Pad Thai from participating restaurants
over the Internet for pickup or delivery.
Aptly called Takeout & Delivery, the service replaces
LivingSocials instant-deals site, which offered real-time dis-
counts with tight time constraints. LivingSocial says that serv-
ice was a testing ground for its new, food-focused offering.
The service is launching Thursday with more than 2,700
restaurants in 26 U.S. markets, including Atlanta, Chicago,
Boston, Philadelphia, Washington and San Francisco. The two
largest, Los Angeles and New York, are coming later, along
with the rest of the markets that LivingSocial serves.
LivingSocial will compete with and GrubHub
others that let people place food orders online and avoid the
phone. Demand for such services has grown as people conduct
more of their lives online.
Greg Mazanec, general manager of LivingSocials new serv-
ice, described phone takeout orders as a sometimes painful
experience that requires shing for a menu in a drawer, giving
out credit card information and often getting put on hold and
speaking to someone who is distracted.
Mazanec said restaurants wont have to pay to join
LivingSocials service, but they will give LivingSocial an
unspecied cut of the revenue they bring in through the site.
Mazanec said the amount is negotiated with each restaurant.

toppings. Dont want to make your own at-

Start to nish: 25 minutes
Servings: 4
1 cup all-purpose our
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/4 cup warm water

1 cup sliced white button mushrooms

Heat the oven to 500 F. Spray 2 baking
sheets with olive oil cooking spray.
In a food processor, combine the our and
salt, then pulse to combine. With the proces-
sor running, add 1 tablespoon of the olive
oil, then slowly drizzle in the water until the
dough forms a tacky, but not wet ball. If the
dough is too dry, add water 1 teaspoon at a
time and pulse until it holds together easily
when squeezed.
Transfer the dough to a lightly oured
counter. Divide the dough into 4 equal
pieces. Using a oured rolling pin, roll each
piece to the size of a large dinner plate.
Place 2 atbreads on each baking sheet
and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the remaining 2
tablespoons of olive oil, the anchovies, gar-
lic and red pepper akes. Mash with a fork
until chunky smooth.
Use a pastry brush to coat each atbread
with the oil-anchovy paste, then top each
with a quarter each of the spinach and mush-
Finish each pizza with 1/2 cup of cheese.

Schreiber said. Its not a turnaround, but its
a good sign.
Growers in California, where the asparagus
season typically runs from Mid-March
through June, are replacing old plants with
new ones but dont expect to add a lot of
acres, said Cherie Watte Angulo, executive
director of the California Asparagus
Some in the industry credit Americans
efforts to eat healthier with the increased
demand for asparagus. Others say a price drop
caused by a bumper crop in Mexico this win-
ter enticed more people to buy fresh aspara-
Im sure a lot of consumers may have even
tried asparagus for the rst time, said Phil
Clouse of Gourmet Trading Co. of Los
Angeles, which packages and distributes fresh
fruit and vegetables.
On Friday, fresh asparagus averaged $2.64 a
pound at grocery stores and other retail out-
lets, according to the U.S. Department of
Washington farmers are hoping prices will
rebound, however. Prices rose last year after
bad weather damaged about a quarter of the
states crop, and Clouse said farmers are hop-
ing demand will boost them again as the
states harvest continues through the next cou-
ple of months.
Gary Larsen, 52, another grower near
Pasco, Wash., believes the key to the future is
in new varieties that allow farmers to grow
more on the same amount of land. He has
already replanted one field and plans to
replant another with new seeds later this year.
But hes also not convinced the industry is
turning around just yet. There have been sig-
nicant changes since processors moved can-
ning and other facilities to Peru and Mexico,
following the boom in farming there.
When the processers were here, we knew
we had a home for our crop, Larson said.
Now, were dealing with the fresh market,
but labor is still the key to this crop. We need
to nd a way to manage those costs.
Asparagus is a labor intensive crop, requir-
ing cutters to walk repeatedly through elds to
harvest stalks by hand. Recent immigration
sweeps and Washingtons high minimum
wage have made labor expensive and scarce,
he said.
Washingtons $9.04 minimum wage is
among the highest in the country.

Currently, the city spends about $930,000

ever, does not currently have a capital funding
plan for future sewer service needs, it has
been dealing with repair and replacement
annually through the current rates.
Without a rate increase, the city will not be
able to fund future repair and replacement,
Gould said.
Commercial rates will also go up propor-
tionately, although the average commercial
customer uses six times the amount of water
than the average resident.
The city plans to inspect all sewer laterals
on private property in the coming years and
push residents to make repairs if necessary.
Ray Moreno, a 40-year Belmont resident,
said the hike will be too burdensome for him.
His annual sewer bill has climbed nearly 100
percent in the past four years, he told the
council last night.
He was reminded, however, that $250 of his
sewer bill is going directly to the SBSA for
facility improvements, an extra charge that all
homeowners in the county should see on their
yearly property tax bills. That charge was not
showing up on Morenos bill four years ago.
Its a hardship, Moreno said.

PLANT CITY, Fla. Folks come from all
over to enjoy the Florida Strawberry Festival,
where they will nd shortcake eating contests, a
berry queen and a strawberry production exhib-
But behind the scenes of one of the states
largest festivals, strawberry farmers are
bemoaning this years larger-than-expected har-
vest meaning turning a prot will be dif-
A warm winter in the Sunshine State has
yielded a bumper crop of berries.
We complained when it was too cold, and
now were complaining this year that its too
hot, said Ted Campbell of the Florida
Strawberry Growers Association. Its a very
challenging year.
According to the United States Department
of Agriculture, a pound of strawberries on
March 2 was selling at major grocery stores for
an average of $2.15 an eight-cent drop from
the previous week and a 28-cent drop from last
year at the same time.
Florida is the nations biggest strawberry pro-
ducer in January and February, while California
is the largest in the spring. Florida takes advan-
tage of its sunny weather and a unique harvest
window November through February to
sell berries worldwide. Many of Floridas
strawberries are grown in the fertile land in
between Tampa and Orlando, and farmers have
celebrated the end of the harvest with a festival
since 1930.
In recent years, Florida farmers have grap-
pled with extreme cold and lost crops, and 2010
was an especially bad year.
But theres more to Floridas woes than
Because of the inux of Mexican berries,
our prices have not gone up, said Peggy Parke,
the Vice President of Parkesdale Farms in
Dover, Fla. Mexico just keeps pulling them
over for low cost. I feel like the Mexican mar-
ket has had a big effect on us this year as far as
The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports
that between Jan. 1 and Thursday, Mexico
shipped 190 million pounds of strawberries to
the U.S. During the same time, Florida shipped
185 million pounds nationwide.
Parke points out that in order for her farm to
sell to large stores like Wal-Mart, it must go
through inspections and meet regulations that
Mexican farms may or may not be doing.
Campbell also said that several farmers added
acreage this year, which contributed to the situ-
The industry was pretty optimistic going
into the start of this season, but it turned out not
to be a highly protable season, he said.
Some are struggling to make a prot. Some
small players may not be able to survive.
While farmers wont be able to fully assess
the results of their crops until later this year, the
glut is good for berry lovers. Roadside stands
dotting the Plant City area were selling eight
pounds of berries for $4.99.
Customers should be able to get a lot of
berries for reasonable prices, Parke said.
Huge strawberry harvest means low prices, profits

NEW ORLEANS Federal pros-
ecutors brought the rst criminal
charges Tuesday in the Gulf oil spill,
accusing a former BP engineer of
deleting more than 300 text mes-
sages that indicated the blown-out
well was spewing far more crude
than the company was telling the
public at the time.
Two years and four days after the
drilling-rig explosion that set off the
worst offshore oil spill in U.S. histo-
ry, Kurt Mix, 50, of Katy, Texas, was
arrested and charged with two counts
of obstruction of justice for allegedly
destroying evidence.
The U.S. Justice Department made
it clear that the investigation is still
going on and suggested that more
people could be arrested. In a state-
ment, Attorney General Eric Holder
said prosecutors will hold account-
able those who violated the law in
connection with the largest environ-
mental disaster in U.S. history.
Federal investigators have been
looking into the causes of the
blowout and the actions of managers,
engineers and rig workers at BP and
its subcontractors Halliburton and
Transocean in the days and hours
before the April 20, 2010, explosion.
But the case against Mix focuses
only on the aftermath of the blast,
when BP scrambled for weeks to
plug the leak. Even then, the charges
are not really about the disaster itself,
but about an alleged attempt to
thwart the investigation into it.
In court papers, the FBI said one
of the areas under investigation is
whether the oil company intentional-
ly lowballed the amount of crude
spewing from the well.
In outlining the charges, the gov-
ernment suggested Mix knew the
rate of ow from the busted well was
much greater than the company pub-
licly acknowledged.
Prosecutors also said BP gave the
public an optimistic account of its
May 2010 efforts to plug the well via
a technique called a top kill, even
though the companys internal data
and some of the text messages
showed the operation was likely to
An accurate ow-rate estimate is
necessary to determine how much in
penalties BP and its subcontractors
could face under the Clean Water
Act. In court papers, prosecutors
appeared to suggest the company
was also worried about the effect of
the disaster on its stock price.
The charges came a day before a
federal judge was to consider granti-
ng preliminary approval of a $7.8
billion civil settlement between BP
and a committee of plaintiffs.
In a statement, BP said it is coop-
erating with the Justice Department
and added: BP had clear policies
requiring preservation of evidence in
this case and has undertaken sub-
stantial and ongoing efforts to pre-
serve evidence.

Pope staking out churchs
course entering eighth year
By Nicole Wineld
VATICAN CITY Pope Benedict XVI began his eighth
year as pope on Tuesday after spending the waning days of his
seventh driving home his view of the Catholic Church, with a
divisive crackdown on dissenters and an
equally divisive opening to a fringe group
of traditionalists.
The coming year may see more of the
same as the Vatican gears up to celebrate
the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican
Council, the 1962-65 church meetings that
reshaped the Catholic Church and are key
to understanding this papacy and
Benedicts recent moves to quell liberal
dissent and promote a more conservative
brand of Catholicism.
Tuesday marked the anniversary of the start of Benedicts
ponticate, which ofcially began April 24, 2005, with an
inaugural Mass in St. Peters Square. The pope promised then
not to impose his own will on the church but to rather listen to
the word and the will of the Lord, to be guided by him, so that
he himself will lead the church at this hour of our history.
Annan calls Syria
situation bleak
By Edith M. Lederer and John Heilprin
UNITED NATIONS International envoy Ko Annan told
the U.N. Security Council Thursday that the situation in Syria is
bleak and expressed alarm at reports that
government troops are still carrying out mil-
itary operations in towns where U.N.
observers are not present.
He expressed particular concern at media
reports that government troops entered the
central city of Hama on Monday after U.N.
observers departed, ring automatic
weapons and killing a signicant number of
If conrmed, this is totally unacceptable
and reprehensible, he said.
The joint U.N.-Arab League envoy said the speedy deployment
of the 300-strong U.N. observer force authorized by the council
on Saturday is crucial to verify what is happening on the
ground. The observer force also would provide a basis for mov-
ing toward a cease-re by the government and opposition, he
said. Annan briefed the Security Council by videoconference
hours after his spokesman, Ahmad Fawzi, told U.N. Television in
Geneva that satellite imagery and other credible reports show
that, despite its claims, Syria has failed to withdraw all of its
heavy weapons from populated areas as required by the cease-
re deal it accepted.
Fawzi also cited credible reports that people who approach
the observers may be approached by security forces or Syrian
army and harassed or arrested or even worse, perhaps killed.
Annan did not mention either the satellite photos or the harass-
ment and possible killing of people who talked to the observers
in the text of his closed brieng, which was obtained by the
Associated Press, but he stressed that the government cannot
cease action in one area to resume it in another.

six years now and has just signed a lease
with the city for another ve years.
Brown even has his eye on the retail
spot next door, the old Turf Shoes store,
that has been vacant for about a year and
is double the size of his current store,
about 360 square feet.
The San Mateo City Council just
approved So Thankfuls long-term lease
for $532.50 a month at its April 16 meet-
Brown feels blessed and loves having
the city as his landlord.
The city is fair and theyve been
working with me for years, Brown said.
He hopes to keep that good relation-
ship with the city as he and his tiny staff
look to turn So Thankful into a house-
hold name.
Foot trafc is up at So Thankful as
commuters that head back and forth to
the downtown Caltrain station have
started to discover the store.
After six years of being here, people
still ask how long have you been here,
Brown said.
The store sells urban wear and con-
temporary clothing for women, jeans,
shoes and plenty of sports apparel, from
Bay Area teams, the New York Yankees
and Miami Heat.
The shops biggest sellers are jackets,
shoes and T-shirts.
We have the same quality clothing
you will nd at the mall for a much bet-
ter price, Brown said.
His tiny staff includes his ancee Lola
Rockwell and 26-year-old Caada
College student Glenn Tojoy, an intern.
The three not only work at So Thankful
but also attend the same church. A
German shepherd named Bear Brown is
the stores mascot and sits quietly behind
the counter.
The three clearly enjoy working
together and Tojoy has discovered
through his internship that running a
business is more than just having good
products to sell on the shelves.
People keep coming back not just to
shop but for socialization as well. It is a
family environment, very welcoming,
Tojoy said.
Tojoy studies fashion and merchandis-
ing at Caada but said the on-the-job
training at So Thankful has inspired him
to one day perhaps open his own shop.
Rockwell has been with So Thankful
since before the store opened on First
The next goal is to market and brand
So Thankful, Rockwell said. We want
to be a household name.
The stores customers are eclectic, she
said, from all walks of life, old, young,
black and white.
If Brown moves next door to the old
Turf spot, he plans to sell more clothing
geared toward women and children, he
The Main Street parking garage and
the Transit Center across the street have
a total of seven tenants and all call the
city of San Mateo its landlord. The city

the facility manager.
The two buildings were managed by
the citys Redevelopment Agency but

fall and the county has been operating on
an interim plan in the meantime.
The nal plan submitted yesterday
included a dozen strategies to deal with
the two populations which are a mix of
case management and treatment options
meant to limit recidivism and give pub-
lic safety ofcials ways to monitor and
reacclimate those in their supervision.
Many of the plans cut across depart-
ments and look at criteria beyond simply
the offense.
The county had two philosophical
approaches to choose from in develop-
ing the plan, said County Manager John
One is catching a person doing some-
thing wrong and reacting; the other is
helping the newly realigned populations
succeed to become more productive,
more accountable citizens resulting in
fewer crimes and fewer victims,
Maltbie said.
The goal of the local plan is to work
with the supervisees as soon as possible
to head off relapse and respond appro-
priately if that relapse happens.
Several of those involved conceded
yesterday that realignment still
includes many unknowns which is
why the plan must be flexible as fund-
ing, requirements and the population
potentially change.
As of yesterday, the county has care of
236 released prisoners with about 40
felons under mandatory supervision,
Forrest said.
Between October and January, 66
inmates who would have previously
gone to prison were sentenced to the
county jail for an average of 240
More than 80 percent of the super-
visees are male and have substance
abuse problems, most are in their 20s or
30s, 100 percent are uninsured and most
have previously failed probation.
They are typically treatment resist-
ant, Forrest said.
The supervised population those
who regardless of past offenses didnt
serve a current term for a serious, violent
or high-risk sex offense is expected to
peak at 600 between October 2012 and
April 2013.
Forrest called the non-serious clas-
sication of these prisoners very clum-
sy and Sheriff Greg Munks added the
$150,000 budgeted for one-time training
costs is necessary for adequate monitor-
This is not undertaken without a
great deal of risk to our community,
Munks said.
The county will receive $4.2 million
for this scal year from the state based
on a formula including the average daily
jail population and the county popula-
tion between 18 and 64 years. The
Sheriffs Ofce absorbed the costs of
extra inmates in its current budget but
will likely ask for funding in the next s-
cal year.
The budget adopted for the
Community Corrections Partnership
a collaboration of the Probation
Department, Sheriffs Office, District
Attorney, Health System and Human
Services Agency as well as judiciary,
education and nonprofit groups that
developed the implementation and
spending plan includes adding a
deputy probation officer, legal office
specialist and a human services supervi-
Several members of the American
Civil Liberties Union applauded the
county for its work but suggested some
changes such as an emphasis on tracking
progress and including pre-arrest diver-
sions to keep people from even getting
into the system.
When thinking of the big picture,
please remember the opportunity the
CCP missed when deciding its collabo-
rative ... plan began at the jail house
gate, said Sarah Matlin, past chair of
the ACLU North Peninsula chapter.
Supervisor Rose Jacobs Gibson
agreed the plan is not inclusive of every
option in the pipeline but called it a
I have to look at it as the beginning,
not the end, she said.

yesterday on a 4-9 vote.
Earlier this month, the Burlingame
City Council voted to support Harkeys
bill, joining a long list of other cities and
counties across the state that oppose the
California High-Speed Rail Authoritys
plan to build a rail system between San
Francisco and Los Angeles.
The people of this state are being
eeced and ignored. We have a broad-
based, statewide, bipartisan group that
wants to stop this runaway train before it
breaks ground. The people were
deceived and the more they learn about
the project, the less they like, Harkey
wrote in a statement yesterday.
Nine Democrats and ve Republicans
sit on the Assembly Committee on
Transportation, including
Assemblywoman Cathleen Galgiani, D-
Stockton, who authored the legislation
that put the $9.95 billion bond measure
on the November 2008 ballot.
The project continues to remain
unfunded, ridership numbers are inaccu-
rate and state taxpayers will be on the
hook for an annual $700 million in debt
service plus unknown millions in operat-
ing costs if the bond is fully funded,
according to Harkeys ofce.
The cost, too, is cause for concern
since the original estimate on the 2008
ballot to construct the project was only
about $36 billion. Since then, the cost to
build the project has soared to nearly
$70 billion and will cost even more,
according to detractors.
In recent months, the cities of
Bakerseld, Chowchilla and the mayor
of Carlsbad have also offered support for
Harkeys lemon law. The city of
Atherton was one of the rst to support
Harkeys bill, joining Hanford, Mission
Viejo, San Juan Capistrano and
Oceanside, among others. The counties
of Amador, Kern, Kings, Orange, San
Diego, Shasta and Tulare also voted to
support the Harkey bill.
This marks the third year we have
promoted a solution and every year our
support grows. We have endorsements
from counties, cities, numerous citizen
organizations and Farm Bureau chapters
across the state, a clear indication that
many have soured on what is becoming
another Solyndra on rails, Harkey wrote
in the statement.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Even if the price is a bit
more than you wanted to spend, nows the time to
acquire that special item for which youve long been
searching. It isnt likely youll fnd anything close to
it again.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The types of activities
that youre likely to fnd enjoyable are those you
can share with good friends and/or family. It doesnt
matter if its a game of cards or something physically
exerting -- itll be to the good.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Being both methodi-
cal and purposeful will serve you well, making you
far more adept at handling your career or domestic
responsibilities. Spend your time accomplishing a
diffcult task and youll come out ahead.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Its to your advantage to
spend some time with friends who are more ambi-
tious than frivolous. Even when they are at play,
theyll be looking for good opportunities.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- One of your most valu-
able assets is the ability to turn meager beginnings
into substantial products. You can easily take the
crumbs that others leave behind and turn them into
full, crusty loaves.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- The reason youre able
to make an arduous task look so simple is your store
of valuable past experience from which to draw. The
more you learn, the easier life gets.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Dont deliberately
put yourself in a position of having to take on a job
youve never done before, but by the same token
dont panic if you are forced into such a thing. Seek
out an expert who can offer guidance.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Your ability for fg-
uring out the basic motivation of certain friends could
be remarkably accurate and will serve you well. Keep
what you learn to yourself, however.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Because of your
impressive input, trends and conditions tend to favor
you. Continue to devote signifcant effort toward the
achievement of worthy objectives.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Conduct yourself with
tolerance and consideration for the frailties of others,
especially if youre in an authoritative position. Be
both helpful and effective.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You could beneft in
some manner from a source that you normally think
of as being merely a backup. It will prove to be not
only a substitute, but also a saving grace.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your friends and associ-
ates will know that you say what you mean and that
you can be counted upon to come through for them,
even if it ends up inconveniencing you in some manner.

Case Number 122247
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, con-
tingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or es-
tate, or both, of: Marcie Brosnan-Sten-
ger. A Petition for Probate has been filed
by Kathleen Brosnan in the Superior
Court of California, County of San Mateo.
The Petition for Probate requests that

The petition requests the decedents will
and codicils, if any, be admitted to pro-
bate. The will and any codicils are availa-
ble for examination in the file kept by the
The petition requests authority to admin-
ister the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This au-
thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an ob-
jection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: May 23, 2012 at
9:00 a.m., Dept. 28, Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo, 400
County Center, 1st Floor, Redwood City,
CA 94063. If you object to the granting
of the petition, you should appear at the
hearing and state your objections or file
written objections with the court before
the hearing. Your appearance may be in
person or by your attorney. If you are a
creditor or a contingent creditor of the
decedent, you must file your claim with
the court and mail a copy to the personal
representative appointed by the court
within four months from the date of first
issuance of letters as provided in Pro-
bate Code section 9100. The time for fil-
ing claims will not expire before four
months from the hearing date noticed
above. You may examine the file kept by
the court. If you are a person interested
in the estate, you may file with the court
a Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-
praisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special No-
tice form is available from the court clerk.
