With tax revenue coming in dras-
tically below projections for the
month of April, State Controller
John Chiang sent out a strong warn-
ing to lawmakers last week that
California will be unable to pay its
bills later this year without a timely,
nanceable budget plan.
Gov. Jerry Brown is expected to
release the May revision to the state
budget today that calls for a combi-
nation of cuts and tax increases to
bridge a $19.2 billion decit.
For April, personal income tax
revenue was 21.5 percent lower than
projected and sales tax revenue was
54.4 percent lower than projected,
according to Chiangs ofce.
The state is scrambling to update
revenue projections for next scal
year, said Jacob Roper, a
spokesman for the State
Controllers Ofce.
We are
expecting a lot
of income tax
revenue in June
but we dont
know if it will
be like April,
Roper said.
Lawma ke r s
have already
trimmed from
the state budget nearly $50 billion
in expenses the past few years.
Assembl yman
Rich Gordon, D-
Menlo Park,
expects to see
more cuts in the
May revise.
I anticipate the
budget will be very stark with some
fairly severe cuts, Gordon told the
Daily Journal. It may be time for
Californians to consider how much
government they want. It is real
simple. We cannot provide services
without money.
More cuts will be needed even if
state voters approve tax initiatives
on the November ballot, including a
boost in state sales tax from 7.25
percent to 7.5 percent and boost in
income tax for those who make
more than $250,000 annually.
The extra tax income is expected
to generate anywhere from $7 bil-
lion to $9 billion annually for the

A number of local teachers will
get layoff notices this week, howev-
er school officials are confident
many will be hired back before the
next school year.
California requires districts to
send out preliminary notices to
teachers by March 15 and nal lay-
off notices by May 15. This year, the
number of notices diminished since
March. Teachers who are laid off
could be asked back over the sum-
mer, when the states budget
becomes clear. Local districts are
currently working with conservative
budgets in case Gov. Jerry Browns
budget doesnt materialize. As pro-
posed, education funding is tied to
the passage of a tax initiative to go

As Pacica searches for ways to
resolve its $700,000 annual budget
decit, one option, closing the citys
police department and outsourcing
that work to the county sheriff, is
causing both concern and interest
among residents and ofcials.
When Pacicas Financing City
Services Task Force oated the idea
in December, it was one of several
submitted for consideration. Others
include a $118 per year parcel tax, a
half-cent sales tax increase, or cuts
to funding for after-school programs
and the Pacica Resource Center,
which provides social services and
nutritional assistance to seniors,
children and low-income residents.
Councilwomen Ginny Jaquith and
Mary Ann Nihart both said it was
too soon in the process for them to

Gerson Galdamez had never
stayed in or been in a hotel when he
signed up to learn more about the
hospitality industry.
Today, the Westmoor High School
senior works in one, Embassy Suites
in South San Francisco. Its a rst
job for the 18-year-old but he enjoys
it and sees a possible future there.
Thats part of the intent of the
Hospitality, Tourism and Recreation
Career Pathway through the San
Mateo County Ofce of Education
Regional Occupational Program.
Drawing from all over the county,
the program allows teens to learn
about the industry then participate
in an internship. Some of those
internships lead to a job. Regardless,
teens are learning a skill that they
can put to use to nd a career or, at
the very least, gain experience that
can be used in the future.
[The program] helps build their
confidence about themselves and
their future, said Andrea Vizenor,
instructor of the program.
Vizenor, who has been teaching
the program for seven years,
explained the program was open to
adults for a short period of time.
Now its strictly for San Mateo
County teens. Students sign up for
the semester-long class normally
housed at one or two high schools.
Working in the hospitality indus-
try, she said, offers a very viable job
for high school students while in
school, attending high school or
going for a career. And, the training
before starting the internship allows
teens the chance to feel condent
and prepared as they take on what is
often their rst job.
Rudy Ortiz, general manager of
the Embassy Suites in South San
Francisco, said the hotel has hosted
12 student interns a semester for
more than ve years. Students have
the chance to learn a few disciplines
to start including front ofce and

On May 14, 1912, the rst movie inspired by the Titanic dis-
aster was released just a month after the British liner sank.
Saved From the Titanic, a one-reel drama produced by the
Eclair Film Co. of Fort Lee, N.J., starred Dorothy Gibson, an
actress who had been an actual passenger on the doomed ship;
she wore for the movie the same outt she was wearing when
rescued. (Saved From the Titanic is considered lost, the only
known copies having been destroyed in a re in 1914.)

Ivy League school janitor
graduates with honors
NEW YORK For years, Gac Filipaj
mopped oors, cleaned toilets and took
out trash at Columbia University.
A refugee from war-torn Yugoslavia, he
eked out a living working for the Ivy
League school. But Sunday was payback
time: The 52-year-old janitor donned a cap
and gown to graduate with a bachelors
degree in classics.
As a Columbia employee, he didnt
have to pay for the classes he took. His
favorite subject was the Roman philoso-
pher and statesman Seneca, the janitor said
during a break from his work at Lerner
Hall, the student union building he cleans.
I love Senecas letters because theyre
written in the spirit in which I was educat-
ed in my family not to look for fame
and fortune, but to have a simple, honest,
honorable life, he said.
His graduation with honors capped a
dozen years of studies, including readings
in ancient Latin and Greek.
This is a man with great pride, whether
hes doing custodial work or academics,
said Peter Awn, dean of Columbias
School of General Studies and professor of
Islamic studies. He is immensely humble
and grateful, but hes one individual who
makes his own future.
Filipaj was accepted at Columbia after
rst learning English; his mother tongue is
For Filipaj, the degree comes after years
of studying late into
the night in his Bronx
apartment, where
hed open his books
after a 2:30-11 p.m.

title. Before exam
time or to nish a
paper, hed pull all-
nighters, then go to
class in the morning and then to work.
On Sunday morning in the sun-
drenched grassy quad of Columbias
Manhattan campus, Filipaj ashed a huge
smile and a thumbs-up as he walked off
the podium after a handshake from
Columbia President Lee Bollinger.
Later, Filipaj got a big hug from his
boss, Donald Schlosser, Columbias
assistant vice president for campus oper-
Bollinger presided over a ceremony in
which General Studies students received
their graduation certicates. They also
can attend Wednesdays commencement
of all Columbia graduates, most of whom
are in their 20s.
Filipaj wasnt much older in 1992 when
he left Montenegro, then a Yugoslav
republic facing a brutal civil war.
An ethnic Albanian and Roman
Catholic, he left his family farm in the
tiny village of Donja Klezna outside the
city of Ulcinj because he was about to be
drafted into the Yugoslav army led by
Serbs, who considered many Albanians
their enemy.
He ed after almost nishing law
school in Belgrade, Yugoslavias capital,
where he commuted for years by train
from Montenegro.
At rst in New York, his uncle in the
Bronx offered him shelter while he
worked as a restaurant busboy.
I asked people, which are the best
schools in New York? he says. Since
Columbia topped his list, I went there to
see if I could get a job.
Part of his $22-an-hour janitors pay
still goes back to his brother, sister-in-law
and two kids in Montenegro. Filipaj has
no computer, but he bought one for the
family, whose income comes mostly
from selling milk.
Filipaj also saves by not paying for a
cellphone; he can only be reached via
He wishes his father were alive to enjoy
his achievement. The elder Filipaj died in
April, and the son ew over for the funeral,
returning three days later for work and
To relax at home, he enjoys an occasion-
al cigarette and some grappa brandy.
And if I have too much, I just go to
sleep, he says, laughing.
During an interview with the Associated
Press in a Lerner Hall conference room,
Filipaj didnt show the slightest regret or
bitterness about his tough life. Instead, he
cheerfully described encounters with sur-
prised younger students who wonder why
their classmate is cleaning up after them.
They say, Arent you...? he said with
a grin.

n 1858, the Italian Mutual Benevolent
Association of San Francisco was estab-
lished. Now the many confused Italian
immigrants, many who could speak only
Italian, had a place they could go to to get help
nd relatives and jobs, learn the laws they
were expected to obey and in general help
them adjust to the new country in which they
were settling. It was a remarkable success.
The immigrants found out that this new
society presented the same problems here as
were in the Old Country. Death needed to
be taken care of and the new state of
California and San Francisco was slow in
addressing the problem. The informal burial
grounds used in North Beach (where North
Beach Playground is now) where many
Italians lived was closed before March 1850.
A new 13-acre site (where City Hall is today)
was used until 1860 when citizens demanded
it be moved further west. A new city cemetery
was opened by 33rd Avenue and Ocean Beach
(Golden Gate Cemetery). On Jan. 1, 1898,
however, the San Francisco Board of
Supervisors passed Ordinance No. 3,096. It
forbid any further burials and demanded that
all those buried be removed to another site.
But where? The Benevolent Association, after
a long search, obtained undeveloped property
along the #40 Line and Southern Pacic rail-
road tracks in Colma (Later acquisition of
land for construction of mausoleums to the
north of F Street by the association brought
the total of cemetery land to 35 acres). This
was to become the rst Italian burial ground
in the United States. In 1886, 25 acres of pota-
to farm land had been purchased by the
Catholic Church and the new Italian Cemetery
on F Street was only a short distance north of
the Holy Cross Cemetery. Although many
Italians are Catholic, the cemetery was not
consecrated nor blessed by the San Francisco
Archdiocese but burial occurred in spite of
Roman Catholic doctrine . The Holy Cross
cemetery land was not consecrated at this
time either. It was not until the 1950s that the
Italian Cemetery was blessed.
In 1919, the San Francisco Board of
Supervisors demanded that the bodies be
removed from Lincoln Park and, at this time,

The Italian Cemetery of Colma was the rst Italian burial ground in the United States.

Becoming an elections ofcer is a way for people to con-
tribute to democracy in their own communities.
Its a really positive thing, said Michael Hall, who has
been an elections ofcer for 25 years. You
see your neighbors and help them nd
their ballot. You feel like you are really
doing something.
Many ofcers can work in precincts in their
own neighborhoods, said Hall. Aside from
setting up the polls and helping people use the
voting equipment, election ofcers are there
to make people feel welcome during voting,
he said.
The feeling at the polls is generally upbeat
because voting is an important thing for
Americans to do, he said.
People bring their kids, said Hall. They
let them watch mommy and daddy vote
and say, someday you can vote.
Hall, a private practice attorney in
Redwood City, is a second generation elec-
tions ofcer. His mother was a longtime
elections ofcer in Tennessee.
Through the years, Hall, 59, has seen
tremendous changes in the voting process.
First, technology has taken voters from
casting paper ballots to electronic voting
machines. California state law still requires polls to offer paper
ballots, said Hall. However, very few people will still choose a
paper ballot.
Second, the 2000 presidential election forever changed elec-
tion protocol, said Hall. The 2000 election was extremely
close between the two candidates. When the vote count
became too close to call, many people began questioning the
security and accuracy of the voting system.
The infamous Florida problem greatly increased the com-
plexity of security, he said. Things rapidly changed.
The transformation was so fast, said Hall, that the California
secretary of state would call in the middle of training to say they
were going to change the voting rules again.
Aside from learning about the voting process, Hall has also
met many fellow elections ofcers. The people who can volun-
teer their time on a Tuesday election are often those who are
retired or self-employed, said Hall. But he has also seen high
school students and other young people interested in politics.
Ethan Frantz of East Palo Alto was not involved in politics at all
before he became an elections
ofcer eight years ago.
The political parties bicker-
ing turned me off, he said.
But this is an energizing and
exciting way to get involved
without the bickering.
Frantz, a self-employed
roboticist, was curious about
the media hype surrounding
the new electronic voting sys-
tems in 2005 and 2006.
I wanted to understand
what was really happening to the election process, he said.
In working as an elections ofcer, he discovered there are
many checks and balances in the voting system. While the sys-
tem is not perfect, Frantz now feels, it is certainly not worthy
of bloggers cries of insecurity and cheating.
This is where it all begins, he said. Where people make
their voice heard.
To run the polls for the June 5 primary, San Mateo County
needs 1,600 citizens serving as election ofcers.
Elections ofcers go through a short three-hour training and
a long day of work, setting up and running a polling place
from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., with two one-hour breaks.
Ofcers make $125 for working election day and attending
the training.
The number of people coming out to be election ofcers is
dwindling, said Valerie Hughs, elections specialist for San
Mateo County. The number of ofcers has been gradually
going downhill during her four years at the elections ofce
because many older ofcers are not coming back to the pro-
For the upcoming June 5 primary, Hughs said the county
still needs more than 200 election ofcers. There is a great
need for ofcers in San Mateo, Hillsborough and Redwood
City, said Hughs.
To become an elections ofcer, you must be a registered
voter in San Mateo County with the ability to speak and write
English clearly, and have transportation to and from the
polling place. Elections ofcers must have the ability to lift
equipment and work the long day.
Training classes are being held at the County Elections
Ofce in San Mateo through June 2.
To register to vote, sign up as an elections ofcer or for more
information, visit or call (650) 286-2810.

NEW YORK Dont let the
hoodie and sneakers fool you. Mark
Zuckerberg is no wet-behind-the-
ears CEO.
Facebooks chief executive turns
28 on Monday, setting in motion the
social networks biggest week ever.
The company is expected to start
selling stock to the public for the
rst time and begin trading on the
Nasdaq Stock Market on Friday.
The IPO could value Facebook at
nearly $100 billion, making it worth
more than such iconic companies as
Disney, Ford and Kraft Foods.
At 28, Zuckerberg is
exactly half the
age of the aver-
age S&P 500
C E O ,
accordi ng
to execu-
tive search
f i r m
S p e n c e r
S t u a r t .
With eight
years on
the job,
hes logged
more time as
leader than the
average CEO,
whose tenure is
a little more
than seven
years, accord-
ing to
Spencer Stuart. Even so, the pres-
sures of running a public company
will undoubtedly take some getting
used to. Once Facebook begins sell-
ing stock, Zuckerberg will be
expected to please a host of new
stakeholders, including Wall Street
investment rms, hedge funds and
pension funds who will pressure
him to keep the company growing.
Young as he may seem espe-
cially in that hooded sweatshirt
Zuckerberg will be about the same
age as Michael Dell and older than
Steve Jobs when those two took
their companies, Dell Inc. and
Apple Inc., public. In his years as
Facebooks CEO hes met world
leaders, rode a bull in Vietnam
while on vacation, started
learning Mandarin
Chinese and as a per-
sonal challenge, wore
a tie for the better
part of a year.
Facebook, of
course, got its
start in
Z u c k e r b e r g s
messy Harvard
dorm room in early
2004. Known as
Thef acebook. com
back in those days, the
site was created to help
Harvard students and
later other college students
connect with one another
online. The scrappy web-
site later grew to
include high-
then anyone
else with an
Internet con-
n e c t i o n .
Today more
than 900 mil-
lion people
log in at least
once a month,
making Facebook the worlds den-
itive social network.
Maturity beyond his years
All along, Zuckerberg has shown
a maturity beyond his years. As the
site grew rapidly and caught the eye
of big media and rival Internet com-
panies, Zuckerberg consistently
rebuffed mouth-watering buyout
offers, including from Google Inc.
and Yahoo Inc.
Simply put: we dont build serv-
ices to make money; we make
money to build better services,
wrote Zuckerberg in his letter to
prospective shareholders. And we
think this is a good way to build
something. These days I think more
and more people want to use servic-
es from companies that believe in
something beyond simply maximiz-
ing prots.
People whove observed
Zuckerberg closely say his age is an
asset. His is the generation that
grew up with social networking,
with computers all around them and
the Internet as something thats
always existed. Many of his
employees are younger than him, as
are a lot of the up-and-coming tech-
nology entrepreneurs with whom he
I dont think you could build a
company like this if you were an old
guy like me, says David
Kirkpatrick, a 59-year-old author
who chronicled the companys early
history in The Facebook Effect.
Kirkpatrick, who is also founder of
Techonomy, a media company that
hosts conferences on the relation-
ship between technology and econ-
omy and social progress, rst met
Zuckerberg six years ago. He says
he was impressed with his vision,

Zuckerberg, who lives in Palo

Obviously, Zuckerberg still has a
lot to learn. As part of Facebooks
pre-IPO roadshow last week,
Zuckerberg visited several venera-

wearing his signature hoodie. While
Silicon Valley insiders defend his
fashion choice, others saw it as a
sign of immaturity. Was it, as some
speculated, a sign of a rebellious
20-something acting out? For
Michael Pachter, analyst at
Wedbush Securities, Zuckerbergs
attitude and attire symbolizes a
level of aloofness to stakeholders.
He seems very customer focused
and very employee focused. I am
not sure he cares about anyone
else... If hes going to go public, he
has to answer to shareholders,
Pachter says. Thats why Google
hired Eric Schmidt. Thats why
Steve Jobs was ultimately forced
out of Apple.
Jobs, in fact, was another Silicon
Valley luminary who had
Zuckerbergs ear. He was 25 in
1980 when Apple went public. He
was ousted ve years later after
clashing with John Sculley, the for-
mer Pepsico executive Apple hired
as chief executive. Jobs famously
returned to lead Apple in 1997 and
the company has thrived since.

SACRAMENTO Californias budget
decit has swelled to a projected $16 billion
much larger than had been predicted just
months ago and will force severe cuts to
schools and public safety if voters fail to
approve tax increases in November, Gov. Jerry
Brown said Saturday.
The Democratic governor said the shortfall
grew from $9.2 billion in January in part
because tax collections have not come in as
high as expected and the economy isnt grow-
ing as fast as hoped for. The decit has also
risen because lawsuits and federal require-
ments have blocked billions of dollars in state
This means we will have to go much farther
and make cuts far greater than I asked for at the
beginning of the year,
Brown said in an online
video. But we cant ll this
hole with cuts alone with-
out doing severe damage to
our schools. Thats why Im
bypassing the gridlock and
asking you, the people of
California, to approve a
plan that avoids cuts to
schools and public safety.
Brown did not release details of the newly
calculated decit Saturday, but he is expected
to lay out a revised spending plan Monday.
The new plan for the scal year that starts July
1 hinges in large part on voters approving
higher taxes.
The governor has said those tax increases
are needed to help pull the state out of a crip-
pling decade shaped by the collapse of the
housing market and recession. Without them,
he warned, public schools and colleges, and
public safety, will suffer deeper cuts.
What Im proposing is not a panacea, but it
goes a long way toward cleaning up the states
budget mess, Brown said.
Democrats, who control the Legislature,
have resisted Browns proposed cuts so far
this year. Republican lawmakers criticized the
majority party for building in overly opti-
mistic tax revenues.
Todays news underscores how we must
rein in spending and let our economy grow by
leaving overburdened taxpayers alone, said
Assembly Republican leader Connie Conway
in a statement.
The governor pursued a ballot initiative
because Republican lawmakers would not pro-
vide the votes needed to reach the two-thirds
legislative majority required to raise taxes.
State facing $16 billion deficit
BURBANK Law enforcement ofcers in
Southern California searched in rugged
mountain terrain for a second day on Sunday
for a missing FBI agent who was said to be
despondent and possibly suicidal.
About 100 FBI agents, 40 sheriffs depart-
ment rescuers and a dozen local police of-
cers participated in the search for Los
Angeles-based Special Agent Stephen Ivens.
He was described as an avid hiker and runner.
FBI Special Agent Steve Gomez said dogs
had tracked Ivens scent toward the Verdugo
Mountains, east of Burbank, but searchers
have fanned out throughout Los Angeles
Ivens, 35, was last seen by family members
Thursday evening, authorities said. He left his
Burbank home the next morning on foot and
had not been seen since, FBI ofcials said at a
news conference. His wife reported him miss-
ing Friday at 7:30 a.m.
Ivens was distraught and authorities fear he
may have harmed himself, according to
KABC-TV. Ofcials did not say why Ivens
was distraught.
A search of his home did not turn up his
handgun and police believe he may have taken
it with him.
Ivens was described by FBI colleagues as
well liked. He is a devoted agent with no his-
tory of disciplinary action on the job, accord-
ing to FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller.
Married with a one-year-old child, he has
been working for the FBI for the past three
years in the national security area. Prior to
that, he worked as a Los Angeles police of-
cer for eight years.
Gomez told reporters that foul play was not
suspected and Ivens was not believed to pose
a threat to others.

GREENSBORO, N.C. Rielle Hunters
life had a lurid, supermarket-tabloid quality
to it full of deception, betrayal, reckless
behavior and broken dreams well before
she became a party to one of the biggest lies
in recent American political history.
Her father had her beloved show horse
killed for insurance money. An ex-boyfriend
used her as his muse for the cocaine-addled,
sexually voracious narrator of one of his
novels. She went to Hollywood to become a
star and left about a decade later with only a
few bit parts.
Through it all, Hunter considered herself a
For as long as I can remember, I had a
relentless desire for truth, she said on her
personal website in the mid-2000s.
Then she met John Edwards in the bar of a
New York hotel in 2006. Hunter said they had
a connection the instant their eyes met, and a
few hours later she was spending the night in
the Democratic presidential candidates
Their relationship led to a landslide of lies.
First, they had to hide their relationship.
She stayed silent as Edwards publicly pro-
fessed his love for his cancer-stricken wife,
Elizabeth, and the two renewed their wedding
When she got pregnant with Edwards
child, she agreed to protect his presidential
ambitions by letting the candidates devoted
right-hand man claim paternity. Then she had
to listen on TV as Edwards said it was impos-
sible for him to be the father.
Whether Edwards is telling the truth or not
is now at the center of his campaign nance
trial, under way in North Carolina. Edwards
lawyers said the candidate had no idea nearly
$1 million from a pair of wealthy benefactors
was being spent to hide Hunter and keep her
away from the tabloids during Edwards run
for the White House. Prosecutors said
Edwards orchestrated the cover-up.
Prosecutors rested their case Thursday
without calling the 48-year-old Hunter to the
stand, despite granting her immunity. They
refused to say why. But legal experts said she
can be ighty and unpredictable and could
have proved dangerous to the governments
Edwards lawyers have not said whether
they will call her to testify, but she could be
hazardous to the defense for the same reason.
Also, legal experts said, her appearance on
the stand might only hurt Edwards with the
jury by emphasizing his cheating and lying.
Hunter was born Lisa Jo Druck. Her father
was a prominent lawyer, and she lived a priv-
ileged life growing up in Florida. Hunter,
who adopted her new name in 1994 while out
in Hollywood, said both her parents cheated
in their marriage.
She loved horses, especially her show
horse Henry The Hawk, which her father
bought for $150,000. But in 1982, he was
short on cash. He had an insurance policy on
the animal worth $150,000 and taught a man
named Tommy The Sandman Burns how to
electrocute a horse so that it would look like
a death from natural causes.

RENO, Nev. With his city no longer the
marriage capital of the nation, a Reno wed-
ding chapel owner says Nevada is missing out
on a golden opportunity with its ban on same-
sex marriage.
Last year saw the fewest marriage licenses
issued in Reno since 1937, but the legaliza-
tion of gay marriage would reverse that, said
George Flint, longtime owner of the Chapel
of the Bells.
He said there are thousands of gay and les-
bian couples in the West who dont have
options because the closest state where they
can legally marry is Iowa.
If we had that as a tourist package, of
course it would be good for the state, but a lot
of people dont think past their moral or reli-
gious noses, Flint said.
Former Nevada state Archivist Guy Rocha
told the Reno Gazette-Journal that legalizing
gay marriage would attract tourists and revive
the regions struggling wedding chapels.
It doesnt save Nevada from its economic
distress, but it helps, and helps with the wed-
ding industry, he said.
Nevada has the nations highest unemploy-
ment rate at 12 percent and ranks second
nationally in foreclosures.
The District of Columbia and six states
(Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New
Hampshire, New York, Vermont) already have
legalized same-sex marriage, making it hard-
er for Nevada to position itself as a wedding
That opportunity is fairly rapidly dimin-
ishing, Rocha said. If we dont make a
move in this decade, its going to pass us by.
Washington state, with its casinos and
resorts, could become the Wests premier
wedding venue if it resolves its issues on
same-sex marriage, Rocha added.
Theyre on the cusp now, and were not on
the cusp in any way, he told the Gazette-
Nevada voters in 2002 gave nal approval
to a state constitutional ban on same-sex mar-
The state has historically been a maverick
on marriage and divorce, making it easier to
obtain them than other states. Nevada gained
the title of Divorce Capital of the World
when the six-month waiting period typical in
the West at the end of the 19th century was
extended to a year in most other states.
In 1931, Gov. Fred Balzar signed legisla-
tion that cut the waiting period from three
months to six weeks in an effort to draw more
people to Reno and help jump start the sour
economy in the midst of the Great

MONTPELIER, Vt. Worries about
health effects, privacy and cost are fueling
growing opposition to wireless, digital smart
meters that utilities around the country are
installing at homes and businesses and tout-
ing as key energy conservation and grid relia-
bility tools.
Vermont appears poised to take an unusual-
ly aggressive stance. While several states
have allowed utilities to charge a fee to cus-
tomers who want to opt out of smart meters,
Vermonts governor is expected soon to sign
legislation that would allow customers to say
no without paying anything extra, at least
until more studies are completed on the real
costs of not deploying the meters.
Theyre the ones who came up with this,
Sen. Robert Hartwell, D-Bennington and a
leading supporter of the free opt-out, said in
an interview. The utilities didnt really care
what the ratepayers thought. So since theyre
the ones who are trying to impose the new
system, we think theyre the ones who should
absorb the costs.
Dorothy Schnure, spokeswoman for
Vermonts Green Mountain Power Corp., said
a smart grid will enable utilities to operate in
a more efcient and environmentally friendly
manner. She predicted most customers would
be eager to see the change.
Under Vermonts law, the costs of cus-
tomers opting out mainly having to send a
meter reader to their home or business, will
be spread across all customers, rather than
being paid just by those who opt out.
Other states allow opt-outs, including
California, Maine, Nevada and Oregon. But
Schnure and others who watch the industry
closely said they were not aware of any where
consumers can skip smart meters for free.
California imposes a $75 fee up front plus
$10 a month for opting out.

smart meter opposition

said it was unclear why the van drifted to the
side of the road. He said some of the students
were thrown from the vehicle, indicating they
may not have been wearing seat belts.

NEW YORK The class of
2012 is leaving college with
something that many graduates
since the start of the Great
Recession have lacked: jobs.
To the relief of graduating sen-
iors and their anxious parents
the outlook is brighter than it
has been in four years. Campus
job fairs were packed this spring
and more companies are hiring.
Students arent just finding good
opportunities, some are weighing
multiple offers.
In some ways, members of the
class of 2012 got lucky. They
arrived on campus in September
2008, the same month that Wall
Street investment bank Lehman
Brothers collapsed, touching off a
financial crisis that exacerbated
the recession.
On campus, they were largely
insulated from the collapsing U.S.
economy. While older brothers
and sisters graduated into a dismal
job market, they took shelter in
chemistry, philosophy and litera-
ture classes.
They used their college years to
prepare for the brutal realities of
the job market that would await
them. They began networking for
jobs much earlier, as freshmen in
some cases. They pursued summer
internships not simply as resume
boosters, but as gateways to per-
manent jobs. And they developed
more realistic expectations about
landing a job in the ideal place
and at the ideal salary.
On campuses across the country,
spirits are more upbeat this spring,
and the employment outlook is
especially promising, according to
interviews with three dozen sen-
iors and career center directors.
Its just been such a dramatic
change from what we saw in
2008, says Mercy Eyadiel, who
oversees career development at
Wake Forest University in
Winston-Salem, N.C. Back then,
openings disappeared overnight
and companies were calling recent
graduates to rescind offers. It
was a very bad, ugly situation.
The job market remains tough,
even for those graduating from the
best universities. Hiring is not
back to its pre-recession level and
plenty of seniors are leaving cam-
puses without jobs.
Yet this years graduates are less
likely to face the disappointment
of moving back in with mom and
dad, or being forced to work at a
coffee shop to pay off loans.
I was nervous that my college
degree would go to waste, says
Laura Mascari, who arrived on the
University of Delawares Newark
campus in the fall of 2008.
Mascari, who received two job
offers, will work in marketing
her major for chemicals giant
Between September 2008 and
August 2010, 6.9 million
American jobs were eliminated. In
the last year and a half, 3.1 million
jobs have been created.
The strengthening job market
has made a big difference to sen-
iors who are job-hunting in their
final semester.
The unemployment rate for col-
lege graduates 24 and under aver-
aged 7.2 percent from January
through April.
That rate, which is not adjusted
for seasonal factors, is down from
the first four months of 2011 (9.1
percent), 2010 (8.1 percent) and
2009 (7.8 percent.) For all
Americans, the unemployment
rate is 8.1 percent.

WASHINGTON Congress is
producing little this election year
that will become law, yet both par-
ties are churning out bills designed
to make the other side look bad.
Take a look at separate measures
that would protect women from vio-
lence, keep student loan rates low
and build roads and bridges. Each is
a widely shared goal and seemingly
easy to enact. But the proposals are
caught in pitched battles, each party
adding language that infuriates the
As a result, the Democratic-led
Senate and Republican-run House are
writing legislation that dies right away
or is assured of going nowhere in the
other chamber. Instead of laws, the
bills generate grist for fundraising
pitches and campaign attack ads.
It was, Lets put a bill on the
oor that we know Republicans will
never support, designed specically
to fail, so we can then spend the
week talking about this on the
Sunday talk shows and speeches on
the oor and missives from the cam-
paign, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.,
complained last week after GOP
senators voted in virtual lockstep to
block Democrats student loan bill.
The constant wrangling is doing lit-
tle to appease voters. In this months
Associated Press-GfK poll, only 18
percent gave favorable grades to
Congress. That was slightly better than
last summer, but still dreadfully low.
The student loan bill underscored
the partisan positioning afoot.
Want to keep interest rates on subsi-
dized Stafford loans from doubling for
7.4 million undergraduates on July 1? If
you were a House Democrat, you had
to vote for a GOP bill nanced by oblit-
erating a preventive health program cre-
ated by President Barack Obamas
cherished health care overhaul.
If you were a Senate Republican,
you had to support a Democratic bill
nanced by boosting payroll taxes
on upscale owners of some privately
owned companies a nonstarter
for most Republicans.

Lets stick to living on dry land
Its a mystery to me why Cargill and
DMB cant see what is obvious to so
many people: salt ponds are the wrong
place for development. Not just
because they are one of the few places
that can be restored to wetlands, which
are vital for the health of the Bay
but also, precisely because they are for-
mer wetlands, they have to be literally
transformed into dry land before they
can be developed. That alone should
tell us that there are better places to
build housing in Redwood City.
Heres what Cargill and DMB refuse
to recognize: We dont need to ter-
raform salt ponds to provide housing
for our residents. There are already
plenty of sites suitable for housing in
Redwood City that can be redeveloped;
in fact, housing developments are
already being planned for several sites,
all of which are centrally located and
wont require years of expensive lling
activities before the ground is suitable
for building. Furthermore, putting
development in the path of rising sea
levels is exactly what scientists and
government agencies are recommend-
ing against. San Mateo County already
has more development in areas vulnera-
ble to sea level rise than any other
county in California, and the costs of
protecting that development are expect-
ed to be huge.
Lets stick to living on dry land and
not take on the expense and risk of try-

lic, the web went wild in a
national debate over ethics
and responsibility as the son
and his family were publicly
shamed and chastised. No
matter how the court rules,
the sons academic future
and reputation have been
damaged. The district has to
hire lawyers to defend itself,
money better spent else-
It didnt have to happen
this way. The student
deserves a severe punish-
ment for plagiarism and breaking his pledge. His father, an
attorney, made the original transgression worse. After the
family complained, the principal offered to allow the student
back into the IBM program with a clear record but he could
not remain in the honors English class for the rest of the
year. For some misguided reason, the father did not accept
the compromise and pursued his case. The day after he led,
students arriving at Sequoia that morning were met with tel-
evision cameras surrounding the school.
Parents are wonderful but sometimes they create more
harm than good overprotective, helicopter parents who
dont trust their kids to learn from their own mistakes. Or at
the other extreme, parents who dont care or are too busy to
parent. When I was on the high school board, suspension and
expulsion hearings were the worst part of the job. Nine times
out of 10, the reasons for the students troubles were with the
parents or lack of parents. One time, a parent who refused to
attend a hearing (the law requires that a parent or guardian
be present at any expulsion review) when contacted on the
phone said she was afraid of her son and he was the districts
problem. As awful as some of these cases were, I always
sought ways to keep these students in school to continue
their education.
If you attend a public high school and are serious about
going to a good college or university including the Ivy
League, Stanford and the UC system, its wise to take
advanced placement courses or an appropriate substitute.
Sequoia offers the IBM program instead. Placement in
another so-called college prep course is not the same.
Students and parents know that. Thats why so many parents
make their kids take AP classes even though they dont take
the nal AP exams. Many kids at Sequoia sign up for the
IBM program but dont complete it. Its a rigorous program
which demands hard work.
When I was a child, my father told me a story I never for-
got. He had missed school one day to see a ball game and
had not done his English homework. So he did something
stupid. He copied a famous essay and handed it in as his
own. The teacher snarled at his plagiarism, approached him
with his metal ruler, and told my father to put his hands on
the desk. The teacher then beat my fathers knuckles till they
bled. My father never told his father (punishment at home
would likely be worse). Nobody complained or sued.
Nobody knew except the students in the classroom. My
father never plagiarized again.
We live in a time when cheating is all around us. Barry
Bonds and Roger Clemens on trial for lying about taking
drugs. Wall Street brokers lie to their clients, hurl the
nations and worlds economy into debt and are still at their
jobs. All of us take to the Internet to do research and pick up
on other peoples ideas, often without attribution. For educa-
tors, its a challenge to check a students work against
Google searches to see just how original it is. This case hit a
nerve because we want someone to be punished for all the
cheating around us or at the very least accept responsibility
for their acts (Unlike our sports heroes). The father should
have accepted mediation and maybe rapped some knuckles
at home. The media should have left the family alone. And
as for the kid, he should have gone on Facebook and said I
did something stupid instead of attacking his school. He
could have become a hero instead of a villain.

By Matthew Craft
NEW YORK It often pays to zig
when everybody else zags. If you were
brave enough to put cash into the stock
market three years ago and very few
small investors were youve doubled
your money.
European stocks have lost about 15
percent since mid-March. Renewed wor-
ries about the regions long-running debt
crisis have rattled markets. So it might
look like a chance to buy cheap.
The trouble, money managers say, is
that nobody knows when the crisis there
will end. Most of them predict it will get
worse, perhaps far worse, before it gets
You cant pick the bottom, says
Martin Jansen, lead manager for interna-
tional equities at ING Investment
Management U.S. And if things get
worse in Europe, todays cheap wont
look so cheap anymore.
To hear Jansen and other money man-
agers tell it, a rule for shopping applies
for investing: Not everything that goes
on sale is a bargain.
If Greece drops out of the 17-country
euro currency group this year, as ana-
lysts worry it will, it could spread havoc
throughout the nancial system. And
Europes underlying problems slump-
ing economies, deep debt burdens and
ever-rising interest rates could take
years to x.
That doesnt mean its time to sell
everything connected to Europe. The
best approach, fund managers say, is to
divide the continent into struggling
countries and stronger ones.
Investors who take this approach keep
clear of Greek banks but favor German
giants. All European markets could get
hammered in a panic, but stocks in the
stronger countries stand a better chance
of bouncing back months, or maybe
years, later.
Put it this way: Are European mar-
kets a screaming buy? Jansen says.
No, right now its time to be cautious,
time to be selective.
Some questions and answers:
Q: Which European countries are in
better shape?
Among the 17 countries that use the
euro currency, Germany is an outlier. It
has the largest economy in Europe and
the fourth-largest in the world. But its
not just Germanys size that sets it apart.
Key measures of the German economy
make it look as if the country broke
away from the continent.
Unemployment across the euro coun-
tries has hit 10.9 percent, with Spain and
Greece above 20 percent. Eight of them
are in recession. Borrowing costs for
deeply indebted countries hover near
what economists consider unsustainable
levels. Spain and Italy have to pay slight-
ly less than 6 percent to borrow for 10
By contrast, Germanys unemploy-
ment rate is 6.8 percent. Economists
expect the economy to expand nearly 1
percent this year. And Germany is a
bond-market darling, borrowing for 10
years at just 1.5 percent.
Sean Lynch, Wells Fargos global
investment strategist, says his rm is
leery of European stocks, except when it
comes to Germany. In money manager-
speak, Wells Fargos stock funds are
underweight Europe, but over-
weight Germany.
We need to stop thinking of Europe
as one entity, Lynch says. We like
Germany. Countries in the northern part
of Europe seem to be on much better
He mentions Sweden and Norway,
which dont use the euro.
Q: But companies in Germany sell to
customers in Portugal, Spain and other
shrinking economies. Isnt everyone on
the same troubled ship here?
German companies do depend on cus-
tomers elsewhere in Europe. Thats why
the next step for bargain-hunters is to
nd those companies in stable European
countries that lean on customers in
faster-growing markets across Asia and
Africa or even the U.S.
For some money managers, German
car makers t the bill. Volkswagen, for
instance, sold a record 8 million cars last
year, vaulting to the No. 2 spot world-
wide, behind General Motors.
German drivers bought one of every
four Volkswagens, but drivers in South
America and Asia bought slightly more.
Sales to India doubled. And VW stock
has a 2.4 percent dividend yield.
Europe not a safe bet
DUBLIN When voters in Greece
and France got the chance, they dealt a
resounding No! to parties backing aus-
terity measures. The Irish could be next
to give the European Unions austerity
plans a black eye.
A May 31 referendum here asks the
public to approve an EU treaty that aims
to control nations annual decits and
longer-term debts. But critics say the
treaty ignores the competing need to
stimulate growth.
Ireland, once staunchly pro-EU but
increasingly euroskeptical, is the only
member of the bloc putting the agree-
ment to a national vote. Analysts of the
eurozone crisis say an Irish rejection of
the treaty, combined with Francois
Hollandes victory in France and a hard-
left turn in Greeces elections, could
force the continent to shift in favor of less
cutting and greater investment in growth.
Irish pose next democratic test for EU austerity
NEW YORK Yahoo CEO Scott
Thompson left the company four months
into the job Sunday after more than a
week of scrutiny into inaccuracies on his
resume and in company lings.
The struggling Internet company had
hoped that Thompson, who became
CEO is January, would turn things
around. But he now becomes the fourth
CEO to leave Yahoo in ve years. He is
being replaced by Yahoos global media
head Ross Levinsohn.
Thompsons exit was encouraged by
Third Point, the activist hedge fund that
owns nearly 6 percent of Yahoo shares.
Third Point claimed that Thompson had
padded his resume with a degree in com-
puter science from Stonehill College.
Thompson did earn an accounting
degree from Stonehill, a Catholic school
near Boston, in 1979, a fact that Yahoo
correctly lists. But he did not earn a
computer science degree.
Third Points CEO, Dan Loeb, and
two of the hedge funds other nominees
will join the Yahoo board. Five directors
who had planned to leave later this year
will now leave immediately. Interim
CEO Levinsohn is someone that Loeb
had suggested for the job.
In a statement issued through Yahoo,
Loeb said he was delighted to join the
Yahoo board and promised to work col-
laboratively with our fellow directors.
Yahoo dumped its previous CEO,
Carol Bartz, in September, disappointed
that she hadnt been able to increase rev-
enue. When Thompson came on board,
he made big changes immediately. Co-
founder Jerry Yang left the board in
January. Thompson announced a reor-
ganization and plans to lay off 2,000
workers, or about 14 percent of the
But Third Point, which had pushed for
Yang to leave and applauded Bartzs dis-
missal, still wasnt happy. On May 3, it
issued a press release with what turned
out to be an explosive accusation:
Thompson had embellished his resume.
Privately, Thompson told his col-
leagues that he wasnt responsible for
the incorrect information. He blamed a

NEW YORK Three executives at
JPMorgan Chase, the largest bank in the
United States, are expected to leave their
jobs this week after a $2 billion trading
blunder, The Wall Street Journal report-
ed Sunday.
The Journal, citing people familiar
with the situation, reported that one of
the executives is Ina Drew, who for
seven years has run the risk-management
division at the bank responsible for the
A JPMorgan spokeswoman did not
immediately return a request for com-
ment from The Associated Press.
Earlier Sunday, NBC aired an inter-
view in which JPMorgan CEO Jamie
Dimon said that he was dead wrong
when he dismissed concerns about the
banks trading last month.
Dimon said he did not know the extent
of the problem when he said in April that
the concerns were a tempest in a
teapot. After the bank reported the trad-
ing loss, investors shaved almost 10 per-
cent off the banks stock price.
We made a terrible, egregious mis-
take, Dimon said in an interview that
was taped Friday and aired on NBCs
Meet the Press. Theres almost no
excuse for it.
The $2 billion loss came in the past
six weeks. Dimon has said it came
from trading in so-called credit deriva-
tives and was designed to hedge
against financial risk, not to make a
profit for the bank.
Dimon said the bank is open to
inquiries from regulators. He has also
promised, in an email to the banks
employees and in a conference call with
stock analysts, to get to the bottom of
what happened and learn from the mis-
Dimon told NBC that he supported
giving the government the authority to
dismantle a failing big bank and wipe
out shareholder equity. But he stressed
that JPMorgan, the largest bank in the
United States, is very strong.
Lawmakers and critics of the banking
industry have seized on the $2 billion
loss to say that banks still take too much
risk more than three years after the nan-
cial crisis.

Back in mid May of 2011, CSM lost back-

Bulldogs did it again thus putting an end to a
superb season of softball.

MANCHESTER, England In the clos-
ing moments of the Premier Leagues most
dramatic season, Manchester City had just
enough time for one nal, breathtaking twist.
With the clubs title hopes fading by the sec-
ond, its anguished fans in disbelief in the
stands, relegation-threatened Queens Park
Rangers clung to a one-goal lead after 90 min-
utes. City then threw all its attacking might
forward to produce one of English soccers
greatest comebacks.
Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero scored dur-
ing injury time in a 3-2 victory that gave City
its rst league title since 1968. City nished
ahead of crosstown rival Manchester United
on goal difference.
Its a crazy nish for a crazy season, City
manager Roberto Mancini said. Ive never
seen a nal like this.
No one had.
After a season in which the title race shifted
back and forth between the Manchester clubs,
City appeared to have thrown it all away on
the nal day. It let 10-man QPR rally from a
goal down to take the lead in the second half
while United completed a 1-0 victory at
But Dzeko headed in a tying goal in the sec-
ond minute of stoppage time to give City fans
hope. Aguero then clinched the title when he
slalomed through the QPR defense and blast-
ed the ball into the net. As Mancini raised his
hands and ran along the sideline, Aguero
the son-in-law of Diego Maradona tore his
shirt off in jubilation before he was mobbed
by teammates.
He was crying on the oor, City captain
Vincent Kompany said. All the guys were
pouring their eyes out. You dont see strong
personalities like that showing their emotion
so often.
Moments earlier, United completed its vic-
tory at Sunderland and was lingering on the
eld in northeast England, waiting for the
nal result of the City game and ready to start
celebrating title No. 20.
Instead, a party 44 years in the making burst
into life back in the blue half of Manchester as
fans ooded the City eld and exploded blue
smoke canisters.
Miracles do happen in Manchester,
Kompany said. This time its on this side of
the road.
Now United on the other side of the road
will have to live with the fact that the club
once dismissed by manager Alex Ferguson as
a noisy neighbor is now a serious threat to
its supremacy.
Id like to say, on behalf of Manchester
United, congratulations to our neighbors a
fantastic achievement to win the Premier
League, Ferguson said.
United had won 12 of its 19 titles since City
last won the English championship for just the
second time in 1968. City has since had to
climb back into the Premier League from the
depths of the third tier in 1999. But it became
a credible title challenger after a takeover by

Diamondbacks, who nished their homestand
It was a tough week, a tough homestand,
said manager Kirk Gibson, whose team was
swept by St. Louis before the Giants came in.
We didnt play well. We got our butts kicked.
Not very good execution again, anywhere.
San Francisco had a season-high 14 hits, 10
of them against starter Joe Saunders (2-3).
Zito allowed three runs and ve hits in six
innings. He struck out ve, walked three and
hit a batter with a pitch.
I was kind of in and out today. I got into
some jams but was able to pitch out, Zito
said. It wasnt a great day for me as far as
stuff goes, but the curveball bailed me out a
few times.
The left-hander entered with a 2.21 ERA
but, thanks mostly to a lack of offensive sup-
port, had not won since a 7-0 shutout at
Colorado on April 8. Zito has not given up
more than three runs in any of his seven starts.
Its been good, contributing the best I can
this year, Zito said. I dont feel like Ive
made any kind of statement and I wont until
the year is over. Ive got a lot of work to do.
Im off to a decent start but I cant take any-
thing for granted.
Cabrera hit .500 on the seven-game road
trip (13 for 26).
Hes on re, Bochy said, from both
sides. Hes a good hitter. He had a breakout
year last year and were excited to have him,
believe me. Hes a smart hitter, can go with
the pitch and he can hit the ball out of the ball-
park, too. He threw up some great at-bats
today, all series really.
Saunders had his second rough outing in a
row after a fast start to the season, giving up
six runs in ve innings.
I am making good pitches and they are just
hitting where we are not, Saunders said. It is
pretty frustrating. You see the frustration with
everybody right now. We are going through a
bad stretch.
The left-hander retired his rst seven batters
before running into trouble. Brandon
Crawford doubled, then with two outs consec-
utive singles by Blanco, Joaquin Arias and
Cabrera brought in two runs in the third
San Francisco scored two more in the fourth
on a two-out, bases-loaded single by Blanco
to make it 4-1. Angel Pagan and Hector
Sanchez started the inning with singles.
The Diamondbacks, up briefly 1-0 on
Kubels RBI single in the second, cut the
Giants lead to 4-3 in the fourth. Ryan Roberts
led off with a single, was sacriced to second
by Saunders bunt and scored when A.J.
Pollock doubled over the head of Blanco in
right. Kubel followed with his second double
of the game to bring home Pollock.
The Giants padded the lead their next time
up. Cabrera, whose four-hit game matched his
career best, led off the fth with a single, then
Pill hit the next pitch into the left-eld seats
and San Francisco led 6-3.

SAN MATEO After falling to the losers
bracket of the Northern California Super
Regional playoffs Saturday, CSM staved off
elimination as long as it could.
Two stellar pitching performances in con-
secutive games kept the Bulldogs in the dou-
ble-elimination tourney until the nal game.
Then, the wheels came off, as CSM was top-
pled by Cosumnes River 13-3 in the nightcap
of yesterdays championship-round double-
header. CSMs 6-2 loss on Saturday also came
at the hands of Cosumnes.
Playing through the losers bracket, the
Bulldogs got consecutive pitching gems from
starters Dylan Nelson and Clay Bauer. Nelson
primarily CSMs closer throughout the
season went the distance in Saturdays
doubleheader nightcap for a 5-2 win over
Diablo Valley College. In yesterdays opener,
Bauer turned in his best start of the year to set
the stage for a dramatic 7-6 win over
Cosumnes in 11 innings.
It was two guys that really needed to step
up, CSM manager Doug Williams said.
They both wanted the ball. It hadnt been
going that well (for Bauer) and he stepped up
huge and did a fantastic job.
Bauer indeed has been and anomaly this
year. After pacing CSM with 12 starts in 2011
and tying for the team lead with a 6-2 record,
he struggled with command and depleted
velocity this season. He ultimately nished
with a 4-6 record, and was coming off a
dreadful outing in regional play last week
against Cabrillo, in which he got knocked out
in the second inning.
Yesterday was a different story. The tall
right-hander went 8 2/3 innings, yielding six
runs, though they were all unearned. Bauer
commanded a remarkable 157 pitches.
Entering the ninth inning with a 6-4 lead, he
seemed poised to finish it. When two
Cosumnes batters reached with two outs,
however, Williams opted to protect Bauer
from any further wear-and-tear.
Clays pitch count was up," Williams said.
"He could have nished it. He was strong. He
said he wanted to nish it. But, his arm is
more important than any game. So, I had to
pull him out there.
The fateful ninth inning seemed to be going
Bauers way. After allowing a leadoff single
to Bryan Case, Bauer set down the next two
batters on four total pitches. Then, with two
outs and a 2-2 count to Cosumnes sophomore
Will Gilliland, Bauer planted a sinking fast-
ball on the inside corner that could have been
called either way. The pitch was called a ball,
and two pitches later, Gilliland walked to
knock Bauer out of the game.
[Williams] told me that he cares more
about my health and my arm than what would
happen (in the game), Bauer said. I was just
trying to be aggressive and get after it. I
always want that last out.
The rollercoaster inning quickly went
against CSM, though, when Cosumnes soph-
omore Jake Schu greeted reliever Parker
Swindell with a game-tying single to send it
to extra innings.
The Bulldogs would go on to win it in the
11th inning on a walk-off suicide squeeze by
Paul Hernandez. Swindell notched the win to
improve his record to 1-0. The move to bring
him into the game altered CSMs game plan,
though, as Swindell would have started the
second game. Instead, the Bulldogs turned to
freshman right-hander Luke McCreesh to get
the ball rolling on a bullpen game.
CSM jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the rst
inning, but Cosumnes came racing back.
McCreesh lasted just one-plus inning, and
was one of four consecutive pitchers to yield
a crooked number to Cosumnes. The Hawks
scored one in the rst inning, then ve in the
second, and never looked back.
Cosumnes left-hander Nick Smart earned
the win, just two days after throwing 70 pitch-
es in a 10-4 win over Ohlone. Cosumnes man-
ager Tony Bloomfield said the plan was
always to go with Smart in the nightcap.
The whole year long weve always gone to
our best available guy, no matter where we
were, Bloomeld said. Thats what we did.
Thats what were going to do. And, whether
or not we match up down there with the big
boys well nd out.
With the three members of CSMs sopho-
more starting rotation all set to transfer at
years end, Nelson made the ultimate case
Saturday to pick up the mantle of staff ace
when theyre gone. The freshman was sensa-
tional in going the distance to earn the win,
upping his record to 6-0, just a day after earn-
ing the save with 2/3 innings of work to close
ace Danny Chavezs gem in the tourney open-
The Bulldogs were understandably an emo-
tional group following yesterdays loss. The
traditional postgame powwow down the right-
eld line was short and sweet, but not without
an ocean of sentiment.
I told them theres a proud and long tradi-
tion here at CSM baseball, and that they have
upheld that, and they should feel very good
about themselves, Williams said.
Bauer was as somber, if not more so, than
anyone, after his rollercoaster day.
This team is one of the, if not the best team
Ive ever played with, Bauer said The cama-
raderie we have with this team is unreal. [For
the season to end] just shocks me. We tried to
compete but balls just werent falling.

with Cosumnes will be Sierra, Orange Coast,
and Rio Honda. The round-robin state cham-
pionship tourney begins Friday in

three years hoping to build a power-
It was really important to start
winning this championship,
Mancini said. Manchester City can
have a big future now.
City rose to the summit after over-
turning an eight-point lead United
held ve weeks ago.
We didnt deserve to lose, we
had a lot of chances and we
deserved to win the game and cham-
pionship, Mancini said. Its fan-
tastic for the club and the supporters
after 44 years.
It was the rst time the English
title was decided in such tense cir-
cumstances since 1989. Arsenal and
Liverpool had the same number of
points and same goal difference, but
Arsenal won the title on total goals.
I never stopped believing,
Kompany said. When Edin scored
that goal, it reminded me of so many
other moments during the season
when weve done this before. There
was no reason not to believe.
QPR entered the game having lost
six straight on the road and with the
worst road record in the league. Yet
City struggled to break down an
opponent that had been facing rele-
gation but survived in the top tier.
The QPR net was nally breached
in the 39th minute when goalkeeper
Paddy Kenny apped at Pablo
Zabaletas shot while on his knees
and palmed the ball over himself into
the net. A blunder by City then near-
ly led to them throwing away the title.
Joleon Lescott went to make a
simple headed clearance. Instead, he
knocked the ball backward and
Djibril Cisse seized on the defend-
ers mistake by driving a shot past
Joe Hart.
Citys task seemed to be made
easier when former player Joey
Barton lost his cool and threw an
elbow at Carlos Tevez as a cross
came into the penalty area from
Zabaleta. The QPR captain was
seething after receiving a red card
and kneed Aguero as he left the
eld. Both sides had to placate the
raging player, who was dragged to
the sideline.
Despite City enjoying the man
advantage, QPR went in front on a
rare counterattack. Armand Traore
was given space to go down the left
flank. Hen then picked out
unmarked Jamie Mackie in the
penalty area and he sent a down-
ward header past Hart in the 66th.
Half an hour later, though, City
emerged as 3-2 winners and cham-
pions of England.
beaten CSM. Even though the
Bulldogs did beat the Renegades
earlier this year to help propel them
to their first outright Coast
Conference title under Nicole Berg,
Ohlone got the ultimate revenge.
Brittany Wright, starting pitcher
for Ohlone, went the distance,
allowing two runs on six hits. She
walked no one and struck out 10.
The Renegades had eight hits.
Perhaps more damaging than the
actual loss, CSM could not shake
off the disappointment in time and
Sierra College took advantage, tak-
ing down and eliminating the
Bulldogs from the playoffs 6-4.
The Bulldogs nish their season
at 39-6 overall.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. The Los
Angeles Clippers refused to let a
third chance to knock the Memphis
Grizzlies out of the playoffs slip
Kenyon Martin scored seven of
his 11 points in the fourth quarter,
and the Clippers advanced to the
Western Conference seminals with
an 82-72 win over the Memphis
Grizzlies in Game 7 on Sunday.
Thats why its seven games,
Martin said. If you dont do it
before, you get another chance. So
they did what they had to do, they
came and stole home court back on
our oor. ... We had a chance to
close it out. We
knew we let it
go, an opportu-
nity get away.
The Clippers
blew an eight-
point lead in the
fourth quarter
Friday night. So
Martin huddled
the Clippers
together at the start of the fourth
quarter Sunday, and the veteran led
the bench in outscoring the
Grizzlies 25-16. Chris Paul had the
only bucket by a starter in the nal
12 minutes, and the Clippers bench
outscored the Memphis reserves 41-
11 overall.
Our bench was our MVP,
Clippers guard Randy Foye said.
They realized what they had to do.
We had a lot of guys hurt, so we just
continued to grind.
Now, the Clippers have their third
postseason series win in 41 years
and their second since relocating to
Los Angeles. They last beat Denver
in 2006. The Clippers also avoided
becoming the ninth NBA team to
blow a 3-1 lead in a best-of-seven
series in moving on to play the top-
seeded Spurs starting Tuesday night
in San Antonio.
I want the guys to enjoy this, and
then well regroup tomorrow and
focus in on that, Clippers coach
Vinny Del Negro said. But obvi-
ously another big challenge for us.
Paul scored 19 points despite
playing with a strained right hip
exor. Nick Young had nine of his
13 off the bench in the fourth as the
Clippers nished off the series with
their biggest margin of victory. Paul
was so confident of victory he
bought plane tickets for his wife and
son to San Antonio on Saturday.
I felt like we should have won
earlier, Paul said. But it doesnt
matter. As long as you win, I think it
is a step in the right direction for our
Rudy Gay and Marc Gasol each
had 19 for Memphis, which lost a
Game 7 at Oklahoma City a year
ago in the second round of the play-
offs. Zach Randolph had a game-
high 12 rebounds.
Unfortunately, no one on the
bench stepped up and helped us,
Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said.
The Clippers, who trailed 56-55
after three quarters, took control by
opening the fourth with an 11-2 run
started by a jumper by Martin. He
tipped in a shot for a 66-58 lead
with 8:41 left. Mo Williams
matched the Clippers biggest lead
to that point at 10 with a 3-pointer
pushing it to 71-61 with 7:04 left in
a 16-5 spurt to open the quarter.
They hit shots in a hurry, Gay
said of the Clippers. They made

just converted, something we
werent doing at that time.

By Janie McCauley
OAKLAND The Oakland Athletics
hardly resembled the same team that
pounded the Detroit Tigers the two pre-
vious days.
With only four regulars in the lineup,
how could they? Especially with Tigers
ace Justin Verlander making things even
more difcult.
Verlander struck out eight to win his
fourth straight decision despite leaving
after seven innings with a bleeding cal-
lus on this thumb, and the Tigers beat the
ailing As 3-1 on Sunday to salvage a
series split.
He looked good. He mixed it up. Hes
an ace for a reason, said Daric Barton,
one of Oaklands starters who is healthy.
He pitched a great game today. He
throws 99 for one thing and pitches well
to location. You think one thing and get
something else. Sometimes you even get
the pitch youre looking for and still
cant do anything with it.
Verlander doesnt expect the tiny blis-
ter near the knuckle of his thumb to
affect him, other than being an annoy-
ance. He might try using more moistur-
izer between starts to keep the area from
drying out.
Miguel Cabrera hit a pair of RBI sin-
gles and Austin Jackson drew a bases-
loaded walk in the sixth to put Detroit
ahead, helping Verlander (4-1) win his
13th straight road decision dating to July
I really dont know what happened.
Its kind of been happening for me all
season long and Ive been trying to deal
with it and gure it out, Verlander said.
Obviously I want to go back, but the
risk-reward, seventh inning ... theres no
point in going out there and risking it
and maybe something serious happens.
If I could, I would. Maybe if its the
World Series Id have gone back out
there, who cares.
Verlander easily worked through
Oaklands order for the rst time, toss-
ing three perfect innings on 42 pitches.
Josh Reddick hit a sharp single to cen-
ter with two outs in the fourth for the
rst baserunner against Verlander, who
then threw wildly trying for a pickoff
and wound up with a two-base error and
Reddick on third. But Jonny Gomes
struck out swinging as Verlander
escaped unscathed.
Seth Smith hit a tying solo homer to
start the fth and As starter Jarrod Parker
(1-1) retired the rst two batters of the
sixth, getting a huge lift from ll-in sec-
ond baseman Eric Sogards leaping, lung-
ing stop of a high liner by Alex Avila.

stress it could wipe away even his smile. Across the water was
an island green that was awaiting him Sunday in The Players

Yeah, absolutely I saw the putt, Kuchar said. Watched
the thing disappear and he gave a big st pump. I knew it got
him to within two shots and he could birdie 18 to bring it
within one.

Rockies walk 10 in loss to Dodgers
LOS ANGELES Colorados pitching staff
walked 10 batters, all during a span of ve
innings, and six of them scored. Without those
runs, the Rockies might have avoided a three-
game sweep by the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Alex White issued consecutive walks in the
fth to load the bases and Bobby Abreu fol-
lowed with a three-run double, chasing the
right-hander and putting the Dodgers ahead to
stay. Matt Reynolds walked another later that
inning, and A.J. Ellis made him pay with a
three-run homer that helped Ted Lilly send the
Rockies to an 11-5 loss on Sunday.
Theres no way of saying it nicely. Thats
awful, said Rockies manager Jim Tracy.
Theres not a whole lot else to say. You walk
nine guys from the fth inning on, I dont care
where you play, youre going to lose.

hy do dogs hate when you blow
in their face, yet they will gladly
stick their head out the window
of a moving car? I wouldnt suggest trying
the rst especially with a dog you dont
know and will admit to the second.
Murray loves to smell the world going by
from my back seat. On the same general
subject, a reader suggested its a good time
for a reminder about dogs in hot cars. Many
residents arent sure how to respond when
they see a dog panting inside a car. Should
they take action or simply wait nearby and
make sure the dogs owner returns? A dog
left alone in a car even one parked in the
shade with ventilation from slightly rolled
down windows can be in danger very
quickly. The temperature inside a car can
reach deadly levels in minutes. Last week,
we found a dog inside a parked car, tested
the cars interior temperature, and knew we
had to act quickly. The dog was ne and the
owners were grateful. But, we took the
extreme action of breaking the window.
During heat waves, our organization
receives two or three calls daily, with reports
of dogs left inside parked cars.
Generally, the owner has returned and
driven off by the time we arrive, but not
always. And, sadly, there have been times
when dogs could not be saved. The penalty
for leaving a dog inside a hot vehicle could
be hundreds of dollars. Our ofcers use lan-
guage in the municipal code and the state
penal code when citing owners. But, the
much steeper penalty for any owner is
knowing their carelessness caused harm to a
loved pet. Dont chance it; that short trip
inside the bank or convenience store could
turn into 15 minutes, which could be the dif-
ference that causes a heat stroke.

Avengers is taking a page out of
Supermans comic book ying
faster than a speeding bullet to the
billion-dollar mark at the box ofce.
The superhero blockbuster took
in $103.2 million to lead for a sec-
ond-straight weekend, raising its
domestic total to $373.2 million,
according to studio estimates
With $95.4 million more over-
seas, The Avengers lifted its inter-
national receipts to $628.9 million
and a worldwide haul of just over $1
billion, only 19 days after it began
rolling out in some markets.
You never think that it can happen
this quickly, said Dave Hollis, head
of distribution for Disney, whose
Marvel Studios unit produced the
ensemble lm after a long buildup in
its solo superhero outings. You hope
you can get to this day, and the fact
that it is happening this early is a tes-
tament to a lot of work that went in on
the Marvel side over the last six years
to get us to a place where people want-
ed to see the Avengers assemble.
The Avengers easily fended off
Johnny Depp and Tim Burtons vam-
pire romp Dark Shadows, which
had a so-so domestic start of $28.8
million to nish a distant No. 2.
Thats far below such past Depp-
Burton collaborations as Alice in
Wonderland, which opened with
$116.1 million, and Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory, which debuted
with $56.2 million.
Dark Shadows added $36.7 mil-
lion in 42 overseas markets for a
worldwide total of $65.5 million.
The Avengers was the rst movie
ever to pull in more than $100 million
domestically in its second weekend,
passing the previous best of $75.6 mil-
lion for Avatar. The lm also topped
$300 million domestically Saturday
after just nine days in release, beating
the previous record set by The Dark
Knight, which hit that mark in 10
Already the years biggest hit world-
wide, The Avengers is on the verge
of passing The Hunger Games at
$386.9 million to become the top-
grossing lm domestically for 2012.
Revenue for The Avengers was
off just 50 percent from the lms
domestic debut of $207.4 million the
previous weekend, a remarkable hold
given how big it started.
A round-up of such Marvel idols as
Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), the
Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain
America (Chris Evans) and Thor
(Chris Hemsworth), The Avengers
has shot past the revenues that its solo
superhero predecessors took in for
their entire runs. The best of those
domestically was Iron Man with
$318.4 million.

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)

before voters in November. Without it,
districts will face mid-year cuts, which
they need to budget for now. That budg-
et plan could change today with revised
state budget numbers released.
In San Mateo County, a number of dis-
tricts are sending out notices to two
employee groups. Temporary employees
are often rst-year teachers only offered
a one-year contract. Certificated
employees most often refers to tenured
employees who will be receiving a
notice. With seniority, certificated
employees may have an opportunity to
be reassigned in the district.
The Redwood City Elementary School
District and the Redwood City Teachers
Association reached a contract agree-
ment in April that includes a contin-
gency for reduction of days and/or salary
following the adoption of the 2012-13
state budget if there is a decrease in the
projected funded base revenue limit per
average daily attendance, said Chief
Business Ofcial Raul Parungao. As a
result, the district was able to rescind 6.8
full-time equivalent positions of the 10.8
FTE layoff notices issued in March. In
terms of temporary teachers, the district
previously sent notices to 25.4 full-time
equivalent positions, representing 30
people. Should the budget situation
change, those employees may be asked
to stay with the district, said Parungao.
In March, the San Mateo-Foster City
Elementary School District Board of
Trustees voted to send notications to
people lling 20.03 full-time equivalent
positions such as administrators, and
those who help with math, art, curricu-
lum, music and social studies. Earlier
this month, the board approved a lower
teacher to student ratio for the next
school year, from 26 to 1 to 24 to 1. The
district expects to be able to bring all the
teachers back, said Molly Barton, assis-
tant superintendent for student services.
The Millbrae Elementary School
District is planning for an estimated
$838,790 loss if the November ballot
measures do not pass, Superintendent
Linda Luna said previously. With that in
mind, the district is sending out notica-
tions to 8 FTEs.
The Hillsborough City School District
was also able to reduce its layoffs.
Originally it was looking at laying off
two teachers due to increasing class
sizes, an English language learner spe-
cialist, two Spanish teachers, a 12-hour
per day computer specialist program and
1.5 positions at Crocker connected to
electives. Superintendent Anthony Ranii
said the total number has been reduced.
In March, the San Bruno Elementary
School District Board of Trustees dis-
cussed sending notices to 17 full-time-
equivalent employees which was low-
ered to 13 last week.
The Sequoia Union High School
District sent notices in March to one
administrative position, 1.6 full-time-
equivalent probationary teaching posi-
tions, 53.8 temporary teaching positions
and 30 temporary adult school teachers,
most part time.
We have begun the process of hiring
back some of the temporary teachers as
openings have been identied at our
schools. This process will continue into
June when we hope to have all stafng
completed, said Jim Lianides, superin-
tendent of the Sequoia Union High
School District.
California schools and community
colleges have had more than $20 million
in funding cuts and deferrals over the
past four years, according to the
California Teachers Association.

Ortiz explained the partnership started
before the economic meltdown when
recruiting was a challenge. For the hotel,
the partnership helped with recruiting.
With a transformation in the travel
industry, Ortiz has noted other benets
for students who decide to take part in
the program. For one, they are intro-
duced to a variety of aspects of the hotel
industry like finance and operations.
Students who work banquets also get a
brieng about the group prior to an
event, Ortiz said, adding that further
expands their exposure to job possibili-
ties after high school.
Its also a chance to intern somewhere
that could lead to a rst job.
Many people think their rst job
needs to be really undesirable with noth-
ing to offer in terms of a career path,
Ortiz said, adding the program helps
break students from that belief. Were
giving an opportunity to the next gener-
ation to take over our business. Its a
great thing for San Mateo County.
Students involved agree taking part
has been both a wonderful and life-
changing experience.
Galdamez, for example, still hasnt
stayed in a hotel but he has his rst job.
He enjoys what hes doing, and it will
allow him the chance to work while
studying the industry and deciding what
hed like to do.
Nineteen-year-old Christina Osai,
from San Mateo, was told to take the
class by a counselor. She was hesitant at
rst but really enjoyed Vizenor.
Now she has her rst job at the South
San Francisco Embassy Suites. Shes
planning to move out of state for school
and is currently looking for hotels in the
area where she can work.

state the next few years before the tax
hikes sunset if voters approve them in
Its troubling that revenue is coming
in below projections as budget talks pick
up, said Assemblyman Jerry Hill, D-
San Mateo. Theres going to be more
service cuts but we have to ensure that
we protect the most vulnerable, educa-
tion and services like child care.
Brown has pledged the temporary
taxes will only be spent on funding edu-
The stark truth is that without some
new taxes, damaging cuts to schools,
universities, public safety and our courts
will only increase, Brown wrote in a
statement following the release of the
state budget in January.
If the tax initiatives do not pass,
Gordon said, the state will be further in
a hole.
The state ended last scal year with an
$8.2 billion decit and the combined
current-year cash decit stands at $19.2
billion, according to Chiangs ofce.
The decit is being covered with $12.8
billion in internal borrowing, temporary
loans from special funds, and $6.4 bil-
lion of external borrowing, according to
Chiangs ofce.
The decit could climb even higher,
Gordon said.
Rumors are the current decit could
be $12 billion to $15 billion, Gordon
said. There is even talk, he said, that the
governor will propose to reduce the pay
for state employees.
The shortfall in tax revenue burdens
the state, Chiang said.
The task of crafting a credibly-bal-
anced budget has been made more dif-
cult by a nine-month revenue shortfall of
$3.5 billion. Without a timely, nance-
able budget plan, the state will be unable
to access the working capital needed to
pay its bills later this year, Chiang
wrote in a statement Tuesday.
Year-to-date through April, total rev-
enue was down $3.5 billion, 5.1 percent,
from estimates in Browns proposed
budget, according to Chiangs ofce.
Leading that disparity was income tax,

SAN DIEGO Police searched
Sunday for a drive-by shooter who
gunned down the president of a San
Diego motorcycle club as he worked in
the clubhouse driveway, while members
of the group he led mourned and paid
tribute to the man they called Wild
Detectives havent identied a motive
for the killing of Clyde Thompson Jr.,
51, president of the original chapter of
the nationwide Black Sabbath
Motorcycle Club, police said.
Thompson was working on his bike
alongside a friend Friday night when an
SUV pulled up and a passenger opened
re, San Diego police Lt. Ernie Herbert
said. Thompson was pronounced dead at
a hospital.
Black Sabbath
Motorcycle Club
mourned what it
called Wild
Doggs martyr-
dom in a post
on the groups
Facebook page.
We continue to struggle to cope with
the sobering reality that despite four
decades of peaceful, non-violent exis-
tence, the post said, we awake this
Mothers Day Sunday having suffered
the cowardly, brutal assassination of a
Black Sabbath M.C. President, Wild
It goes on to call Thompson a respon-
sible brother with big shoulders. He was
simply a very nice person who did not
deserve to be shot down in the street like
a rabid dog.
The club was founded in 1972 by
seven black men who liked to ride on
Sundays, the groups website said. The
Mighty Black Sabbath M.C. Nation has
since become a multicultural club head-
quartered in Atlanta with 17 chapters
Late last year, Thompson took over
what is known as the mother chapter
in San Diego.
John, Black Dragon Bunch, the
groups national president who lives in
Georgia, said members have historically
been servicemen and tradesman
adopting nicknames to avoid misunder-
standings with employers.
We dont have a motorcycle club that
has a reputation for trouble, Bunch said.

more than 8,000 remains were moved to
Colma. Many of these bodies were remains of
the poor and indigents without families. Their
remains were many times not respected and
dumped in mass graves in Colma. At the
Colma Museum on Hillside Boulevard, there
is a stone monument of a man who is buried
in a mass grave in Woodlawn Cemetery.
When BART was constructing its tracks along
the old Southern Pacic right-of-way parallel
to El Camino Real, this monument was found.
Apparently, it had either fallen off of the train
that was delivering remains of the San
Francisco cemetery or it was dumped so it
didnt need to be transported to the mass
grave where monuments were not allowed.
The triangular property along F Street was
developed with a number of streets: San
Antonio, San Francisco, San Felice and San
Pietro avenues laid out to use the maximum
amount of space. The entrance on F Street led
to the rst one-story brick ofce that is still on
the site although new ofces have been built
on F Street. The association and a ower shop
have entrances on F Street also. At the
entrance, an old bell still hangs that alerted
the workers to change into proper clothes as a
funeral procession was due in 30 minutes.
Needless to say, the placement of a ceme-
tery in Colma attracted businesses that could
supply statuary, monuments, tombstones and
vaults. The Botti brothers, Gaetano and
Leopoldo, worked at their trade for many
years in Colma. Gaetano Botti arrived in the
1890s and had two main buildings on Mission
Street one across from Home of Peace
Cemetery and the other across from Holy
Cross Cemetery. His brother Leopoldo
opened a competitive shop named L. Botti
and Sons that was west of F Street. In 1921,
Valerio Fontana started his monument busi-
ness across from the cemetery. He also estab-
lished a ofce on Mission Street. These two
families are responsible for making the major-
ity of vaults and tombs in the cemetery.

form conclusions, but Mayor Pete
DeJarnatt is dead set against out-
sourcing, and believes residents
might prefer the proposed half-cent
sales tax increase.
I dont like the idea of outsourcing
our police department, he said. My
sense is the voters probably dont like
it either. The Sheriffs [Ofce] has
demonstrated they do good work, but
I just dont think its appropriate for
Pacica. Were geographically differ-
ent from those other cities, which are
generally not that difcult to navigate;
weve got three separate valleys that
are isolated from each other.
While two Pacica police ofcers
recently sat in the Bay Coffee
Company cafe on Palmetto Avenue,
their conversation was interrupted
twice by citizens asking about the
proposal. Pacica Police Ofcers
Association President Josh McPhall
said similar interactions have
become increasingly common.
I work patrol, and am approached
daily by citizens who are concerned
about whether service levels and
stafng will be affected, he said.
Although Pacicas police ofcers
would be invited to join the Sheriffs
Ofce as deputies, McPhall said it was
too soon for him to render an opinion.
Our citys been tight-lipped about
the process, and its hard to comment
without seeing what the terms of a
proposed contract would be, because
there are a lot of variables that affect
our jobs and safety, he said.
McPhall does, however, see
potential benets for the ofcers he
Our ofcers are at a point where
the citys been facing years of nan-
cial turmoil and they just want to get
stability for their lives, and if we
remain our own police department,
Im sure well be facing cuts in pay
and benets, he said, adding there
might be a community benet in
working with the Sheriffs Ofce.
The Sheriffs [Ofce] is an excellent
organization, and has a great deal of
available resources, from trafc units
to its School Resources Program, its
Narcotics Task Force and other things
we havent had for decades.
The city of Millbrae began contract-
ing with the Sheriffs Ofce for police
services in March. Millbrae Mayor
Marge Colapietro said it has been pos-
itive so far and residents have even
said they havent seen so many police
cars on the street in years.
Its very difcult for a city to have
the kind of resources the Sheriffs
[Ofce] has, she said. If they need a
helicopter, they get a helicopter. If they
need a boat, they get a boat. If they
need a bomb squad, theyve got a
bomb squad.
Millbrae expects to see its policing
expenses reduced by $1 million in the
rst year of their ve-year contract,
with the savings coming from changes
in retirement plans and the fact that the
Sheriffs Ofce has enough personnel
to avoid overtime expenses.
In addition to Millbrae, the cities of
San Carlos and Half Moon Bay have
also recently replaced their police
departments with County Sheriff
patrols. Like Colapietro, Half Moon
Bay Mayor Allan Alifano is pleased
with the arrangement.
When a rare gang shooting occurred
in August, the Sheriffs Ofce provid-
ed something almost as rare for Half
Moon Bay: air support. Though he
was impressed with the helicopter,
Mayor Alifano was even more
impressed with the manpower.
The sheriff said If you need detec-
tives, Ive got a team of 30 I can bring
over. The resources they brought to
bear were phenomenal, he said.
Prior to the Sheriffs Ofce con-
tract, Half Moon Bays budget con-
straints had reduced its police depart-
ment to eight ofcers.
We feel like we have a much greater
law enforcement presence now; the
level of service has been much better
than what you could expect from just
eight ofcers, he said.
Sheriff Greg Munks does point
out that Half Moon Bays transition
was especially smooth, because the
town is surrounded by unincorpo-
rated areas where the Sheriffs
Ofce already had a strong pres-
ence. Pacicas situation is more
like San Carlos and Millbraes, but
Munks said he is condent about his
ability to serve all of these commu-
nities though he could not discuss
specic details because he is still in
negotiations with Pacica ofcials.
All three situations are working
out remarkably well. All three cities
were looking at cutting essential
services and now they dont have to.
In all three cases its been very suc-
cessful and resulted in the cities
being able to restore and improve
essential services, Munks said.
Pacica has 33 ofcers familiar
with and experienced in the city.
Munks said the entire police depart-
ment will be absorbed but not all
will remain in the city.
What we do is keep one half of a
citys existing workforce and rotate
existing sheriffs employees into the
other half. This allows us to maintain
local knowledge without creating an
us versus them situation within the
department, he said, adding that it
broadens career prospects for local
ofcers. Sometimes there are of-
cers who want to work somewhere
else. In Half Moon Bay, weve already
promoted one guy. It strengthens our
organization, picking up a lot of new,
experienced, quality people, so its a
win-win for everybody.
Mayor DeJarnatt said there are still
many unanswered questions when it
comes to the proposal and the possi-
bility of assimilating current ofcers
into the Sheriffs Ofce.
The Sheriffs [Ofce] is a lot
bigger entity, and Id just prefer to
stick with our Police Department
theyve been doing such a great
job, he said.
Mayor Pro Tem Len Stone, how-
ever, wants to explore those unan-
swered questions.
There certainly are a lot of vari-
ables, but that can be worked out. We
need to nd the answers to those ques-
tions. Other cities have gone through
that lengthy process and found those
answers, and we need to do that work
too, he said. Weve had two major
taxes rejected in the last two years, and
I think we have a responsibility to the
public to see whether this can work in
Pacica. If we just say We dont want
to do it, without looking at the facts
and doing the research, thats not very
There is not yet a time frame for
when the city will make a decision,
and it is expecting a similar propos-
al from the South San Francisco
Police Department, said Pacifica
City Manager Stephen Rhodes.

Deal looks near to end
Palestianian hunger strike
JERUSALEM Egyptian and
Palestinian officials said Sunday
they were close to reaching a deal
with Israel that would end a mass
hunger strike by Palestinians in
Israeli jails.
Some 1,600 Palestinian prisoners
are on strike, most for a month, but
three have refused food for more
than 70 days. They launched the
strike to press their demands for bet-
ter conditions and an end to deten-
tion without trial.
An Egyptian-drafted proposal
calls for Israel to move prisoners
currently held in solitary conne-
ment to regular cells.
World briefs
By George Jahn
VIENNA A drawing based on
information from inside an Iranian
military site shows an explosives
containment chamber of the type
needed for nuclear arms-related
tests that U.N. inspectors suspect
Tehran has conducted there. Iran
denies such testing and has neither
conrmed nor denied the existence
of such a chamber.
The computer-generated drawing
was provided to the Associated
Press by an ofcial of a country
tracking Irans nuclear program
who said it proves the structure
exists, despite Tehrans refusal to
acknowledge it.
That ofcial said the image is
based on
i nformat i on
from a person
who had seen
the chamber
at the Parchin
military site,
adding that
going into
detail would endanger the life of
that informant. The ofcial comes
from an IAEA member country that
is severely critical of Irans asser-
tions that its nuclear activities are
peaceful and asserts they are a
springboard for making atomic
A former senior IAEA ofcial
said he believes the drawing is accu-
rate. Olli Heinonen, until last year
the U.N. nuclear agencys deputy
director general in charge of the
Iran le, said it was very similar
to a photo he recently saw that he
believes to be the pressure chamber
the IAEA suspects is at Parchin.
He said even the colors of the
computer-generated drawing
matched that of the photo he had but
declined to go into the origins of the
photo to protect his source.
After months of being rebuffed,
IAEA and Iranian ofcials meet
starting Monday in Vienna, and the
IAEA will renew its attempt to gain
access to the chamber, allegedly
hidden in a building. Any evidence
that Iran is hiding such an explo-
sives containment tank, and details
on how it functions, is signicant
for IAEA investigations.
Beyond IAEA hopes of progress,
that two-day meeting is being close-
ly watched by six powers trying to
persuade Iran to make nuclear con-
cessions aimed at reducing fears
that it may want to develop atomic
arms as a mood-setter for May 23
talks between the six and Tehran in
Warnings by Israel that it may
attack Irans nuclear facilities eased
after Iran and the six the United
States, Russia, China, Britain,
France and Germany met last
month and agreed there was enough
common will for the Baghdad
round. But with the Jewish state
saying it is determined to stop Iran
before it develops the capacity to
build nuclear weapons, failure at the
Iraq talks could turn such threats
into reality.
Irans nuke work questioned
Forty-nine bodies with their heads,
hands and feet hacked off were
found Sunday dumped on a north-
ern Mexico highway leading to the
Texas border in what appeared to be
the latest carnage in an escalating
war between Mexicos two domi-
nant drug cartels.
Local and federal authorities dis-
covered the bodies before dawn
lying in a pool of blood at the
entrance to the desert town of San
Juan, on a highway leading from the
metropolis of Monterrey to the bor-
der city of Reynosa. A white stone
arch welcoming visitors was spray-
painted with black letters: 100%
Nuevo Leon state security
spokesman Jorge Domene said at a
news conference that the 43 men
and six women would be hard to
identify because of the lack of
heads, hands and feet. The bodies
were being taken to a Monterrey
auditorium for DNA tests.
The victims could have been
killed as long as two days ago at
another location, then transported to
San Juan, a town in Cadereyta
municipality about 105 miles (175
kilometers) west-southwest of
McAllen, Texas, and 75 miles (125
kilometers) southwest of the Roma,
Texas, border crossing, state
Attorney General Adrian de la
Garza said.
De la Garza said he did not rule
out the possibility that the victims
were U.S.-bound migrants.
But it seemed more likely that the
killings were the latest salvo in a
gruesome game of tit-for-tat in
ghting among brutal drug gangs.
This is the most denitive of all
the cartel wars, said Raul Benitez
Manaut, a security expert at
Mexicos National Autonomous
49 headless bodies dumped on north Mexico highway
