Fighting for victims
and their families
By Sally Schilling
After years of having short shing
seasons, or in some years no season
at all, salmon shermen are hopeful
for great catches this year.
The commercial salmon season
began May 1. Because of the high
winds during the rst few weeks of
the season, most commercial
salmon boats in Half Moon Bay
have only made a few trips.
The number of sh brought back
has varied widely from boat to boat.
But word of some big catches has
bolstered the hopes of salmon sh-
ermen docked at Pillar Point Harbor
in Half Moon Bay.
Its much better than last year so
far, said John Burton as he worked
on his shing boat, Aini-K.
Burton has made three salmon
shing trips this season. Each trip
yielded a different result. He came
back from his latest trip with no
salmon, because he had tangled
lines. He caught around 20 salmon
on his second trip, which was fair,
he said. But he caught more than all
of last season on his rst trip, 87
Burton has been shing south of
Half Moon Bay off the coast near
Pigeon Point.
Theyve been catching them all
up and down the coast, he said.
Fishermen are catching salmon as
far south as Morro Bay and as far
north as Point Arena.
For commercial salmon fisher-
men, there is no limit on the number
of fish they can catch, but the
salmon must be at least 27 inches
Its been spotty so far, said Tom
Genochio who has been shing for
48 years. You have good years and

Nearly 8,000 San Mateo homes

It was while her son was battling
cancer that Purvi Shah really saw
the healing power of art.
She noticed a change in her little
boy, Amaey Shah, when he was 3.
She went to the Montessori pre-
school he was attending and saw her
pale-faced little one sitting down
with a sandwich. He didnt seem to
have the energy to eat the food in
front of him. At rst, Purvi Shah
thought he was sick. But at home,
she noticed his belly was extended.
A blood test later showed it was

mother started
to see the bene-

access to art.

mission to team up with children
and families in the Bay Area who
have been touched by cancer. The

pants are given the option to keep or
leave their art. Pieces left are used
as part of an auction, which will be

in San Francisco. Proceeds from the
event provides funds for art sup-
plies, art therapy sessions for fami-
lies and friends of cancer patients,
and ongoing one-on-one and group
art sessions.
For me, its huge for a child to
make something so beautiful and
then leave it. Its just amazing, said

Nothing came easy to 18-year-old
Christopher Romeo while trying to pursue
sports in high school.
Romeo had trouble with both of his knees
which really kept him for being a player whose
name made headlines. But at Junipero Serra
High School, he was known as an individual
who continued to lead despite challenges from
injuries. Romeo went from being a shy kid to a
leader on his campus. After graduation, he plans
to study horticulture at California Polytechnic
State University in hopes of helping with the
family fertilizer business in the future.
Chris Romeo truly has been a tremendous
role model to the community throughout his
time at Serra, said Principal Barry Thornton.
He is a natural leader, and his fellow students
have recognized this both by electing him to
student government leadership (he is the vice
president of the executive student council) and
following him as captain of the athletic teams.
Chris experienced a devastating football injury
this past football season. His message of perse-
verance through adversity that he delivered to
his teammates was so inspiring that I read it to
the entire faculty. He is seless in his service to
others and courageous in his actions. When we
think of a model Padre, we think of Chris.
Romeo grew up in Burlingame. He attended
Our Lady of Angels and played sports, speci-
cally baseball and basketball. Being part of a
team is where Romeo always felt the most com-
fortable. Having attended summer camps and
sporting events, Romeo was happy to attend
Serra when it was time to go to high school.
High school was a fresh start and he planned to
play baseball for the Padres.
The summer before his freshman year, how-
ever, Romeo blew out his right knee. It turned
into a two-year injury that really kept him from
making any sports teams. Romeo did join the
football team in a way, as the team manager in
both his freshman and sophomore years.
Once he was cleared to play baseball, Romeo
didnt make the team. He was able to join track
and eld taking on the pole vault and hurdles.
During his junior year, Romeo made the foot-
ball team playing as a running back and safety.
Rather than go out for baseball, he stuck with
track in the spring to work on his speed for foot-
ball. That paid off as he returned a bit faster in
the fall of his senior year. Now the team captain,
Romeo was two weeks out before a rivalry
game when his left knee gave out. He tried play-
ing with a brace but it just wasnt working. He
kept the seriousness of the injury from his team.
Instead, Romeo thought his teammates seeing
him run alongside them was probably inspiring.
Surgery in October came with a six-month
recovery period. This year, Serra ended up
being CCS champions. The coach told the team
if it was ahead at the end, Romeo could go onto
the eld to take the last snap. As luck would
have it, that happened. Two days later, Romeo
was working out with the baseball team with
plans to try out against advice of his doctor.
Romeo took the risk and went for the team.
Ive always loved baseball and came here
hoping to play, he said, adding just making the
team was amazing.
Its not often a student plays a sport only his
senior year. Romeo was lucky to get some play-
ing time as well. Serra actually won league this
year also.
Throughout his struggles, Romeo pointed to
the support of others and his faith as helping
him get through. As a result, he decided to take
on a bigger leadership role in junior year
through the Big Brother Club, which partners
upperclassman with younger students, and as
vice president of the executive student council.
Everything Ive done is possible because of
the way Serra raises you as a man and holds you
responsible, he said. Its possible because of
the community.
Junipero Serras graduation will be held at 10
a.m. Saturday, June 2 at the Metropolitan
Cathedral of St. Mary of Assumption in San
Francisco. Tickets are required.
Great Grads is in its seventh year proling
one graduating senior from each of our local
schools. Schools have the option to partici-
pate. Those that choose to participate are
asked to nominate one student who deserves
Perseverance and a strong sense of Serra pride

California State Preschool Program, accord-
ing to a press release from his ofce. In doing so,
Assembly Bill 2104 creates one of the countrys
largest state preschool programs, without pre-
senting additional direct costs to the state.
Prior to the creation of the California State
Preschool Program in 2008, California had sep-
arately administered three state-funded pre-
school and child-care programs namely:
PKFL, state preschool programs and general
child care and development programs. By elimi-
nating the PKFL Program statutes, AB 2104
finalizes the full consolidation of the CSP
Program initiated in 2008 while retaining its
programmatic qualities, according to Gordons
Assembly Bill 2104 passed the Assembly
with near unanimous support and now heads to
the Senate.
Assembly Bill 1800, a bill authored by
Assemblywoman Fiona Ma, D-San Francisco,
which would set a capped deductible on out-of-
pocket expenses in the amount of $5,950 for a
single patient, or $11,900 for a family of any
size, passed out of the Assembly oor and is
advancing to the Senate, according to a press
release from her ofce.
This deductible would include all out-of-pock-
et costs for covered benets such as: doctor vis-
its, lab tests and prescriptions for patients that
have cancer, Multiple sclerosis, HIV and other
chronic conditions that are costly to manage,
according to Mas ofce.
Legislation to modernize Cal-Access the

but was reconsidered and approved on a 27-10
vote yesterday, according to the ofce of the

and a new fee on political committees that le

A bill to protect the rights of drivers by reg-
ulating red-light cameras passed unanimously
Thursday in the state Senate. The vote was 37-0.
Senate Bill 1303, by state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-
Palo Alto, would establish statewide standards
for the installation and operation of traffic
enforcement cameras, and make it easier to chal-
lenge unjustied tickets, according to Simitians
Senate Bill 1303 requires camera locations be
chosen because of safety considerations, and not
on their potential to generate revenue; requires
cities and counties to follow state standards in
the placement and operation of cameras; ade-
quate signs to notify drivers when red-light cam-
eras are in use; prohibits so-called snitch tick-
ets (i.e., an innocent ticket recipient may not be
required to identify another driver to clear an
inaccurate ticket); and Makes it easier for a
wrongfully ticketed driver to get a ticket cleared,

Carlos Velasquez, 22, pleaded no contest to
making felony threats and Marcelo Jose
Castro, 22, pleaded no contest to a felony
count of discharging a rearm in public. Both
face up to 16 months in prison when sentenced
July 13. A third defendant, Rodrigo Alejandro
Aguayo, 33, did not take a plea deal and vacat-
ed his scheduled jury trial. He was recently
indicted by federal prosecutors in an unrelated
racketeering sweep.
Prosecutors say, on Feb. 25, Velasquez
arrived at his former workplace on the 400
block of North Canal Street with the two oth-
ers to confront the manager of the business but
a group of employees
attempted to intervene. A
ght broke out between the
suspects and the employ-
ees and Castro allegedly
red several shots from a
handgun. Aguayo report-
edly hit one of the employ-
ees with a baseball bat
before the three defen-

at his house and Aguayo
returning home in a vehicle
seen leaving the scene.
Details of Castros appre-

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. Triumphant
from start to nish, the SpaceX Dragon cap-
sule parachuted into the Pacic on Thursday
to conclude the rst private delivery to the
International Space Station and inaugurate
NASAs new approach to exploration.
Welcome home, baby, said SpaceXs elat-
ed chief, Elon Musk. The old-fashioned
splashdown was like seeing your kid come
home, he said.
He said he was a bit surprised to hit such a
grand slam.
You can see so many ways that it could fail
and it works and youre like, Wow, OK, it
didnt fail, Musk said, laughing, from his
companys headquarters in Hawthorne, Calif.
I think anyone whos been involved in the
design of a really complicated machine can
sympathize with what Im saying.
The goal for SpaceX will be to repeat the
success on future ights, he told reporters.
The unmanned supply ship scored a bulls-
eye with its arrival, splashing down into the
ocean about 500 miles off Mexicos Baja
California peninsula. A eet of recovery ships
quickly moved in to pull the capsule aboard a
barge for towing to Los Angeles.
It was the first time since the shuttles
stopped ying last summer that NASA got
back a big load from the space station, in this

Garcia-Pacheco, John Hoffmann, Brad Lewis,
Sally Mitchell, Steven San Filippo and Inge
Cameron Johnson also applied but asked
City Clerk Christine Boland yesterday to
withdraw his name because of the request not
to run for election in 2013.
The request is not legally enforceable but
the City Council has used it before, most
recently when Lewis was named to ll the
vacancy left by the May 2011 death of former
mayor Omar Ahmad.
The current vacancy was created in April
when former mayor Andy Klein resigned for
personal reasons.

SACRAMENTO A state panel on
Thursday sent a message about the severity of
Californias $15.7 billion budget decit by
approving a 5 percent pay cut for lawmakers
and statewide elected ofcials, including Gov.
Jerry Brown.
The California Citizens Compensation
Commission, which sets pay and health bene-
ts for those ofces, voted 5-1 in favor of the
cuts that take effect Dec. 3.
I agree that this isnt going to make a dent,
but I think it will send a message that we have
to move on. ... Everybody has to sacrice and
a lot have done so much more than others,
said Commissioner Charles Murray, who pro-
posed the reduction.
The independent panel previously reduced
salaries for 120 members of the Legislature
and 12 statewide ofceholders by 18 percent
in 2009.
California lawmakers do not receive pen-
sions but are the highest paid in the nation
with a base annual salary of $95,290. Nearly
all receive additional tax-free per diem pay-
ments of about $30,000 a year.
The pay cut will drop their salaries to
$90,525, which commissioners said would
still keep them at the top of the national list on
a cash basis. The leaders of the Assembly and
Senate will be cut from $109,584, to
Browns salary will be reduced from just
under $174,000 to about $165,000. Lt. Gov.
Gavin Newsom will see his $130,000 salary
reduced to about $124,000. And the pay of
Attorney General Kamala Harris will drop
from about $151,000 to less than $144,000.
Commissioner Ruth Lopez Novodor, the
only member to vote against the proposal, said
the 5 percent cut should only take effect if the
governor successfully negotiates a pay reduc-
tion for state workers. Brown has proposed
talks with unions to reduce the state work-
week from ve to four days.
The governor estimates that proposal would
save the state 5 percent, or $402 million, on
salaries. In addition, his proposed budget
would reduce the state workforce to about
216,000, down from 225,000 workers in
2007-08 and about 4,000 fewer than last year.
State employees temporarily lost pay
through furloughs ordered by former Gov.
Arnold Schwarzenegger. The cut was about 14
percent but pay has since been restored and
relatively few state workers have lost their
jobs to layoffs.
Assembly Speaker John Perez said by cut-
ting pay twice, the commission could create a
political system where only the wealthy can
afford to serve.
Since the Legislature has already taken an
18 percent pay cut, which is still in place
while furloughs for state workers have ended,
we believe the commissions cut is punitive
and ignores the size and complexity of the job
and the facts regarding comparable legislative
bodies, Perez said in a statement.
Thomas Dalzell, chairman of the commis-
sion, chose to abstain from Thursdays vote.
He noted that the governor makes less than
trial judges and that lawmakers salaries are
roughly equivalent to a skilled construction
To cut them further boggles my mind,
Dalzell said.
Commissioner John Stites said lawmakers
and other state elected ofcials should lead by
example and cut their pay 5 percent.
Its their responsibility to take care of the
economy, and its failing, Stites said. The
state is going under. Theres going to be sig-
nicant reductions. Its going to have to come
from public employees regardless of where
they are. We start here.
According to the National Conference of
State Legislatures, Pennsylvania is the next
highest-paid state and lawmakers there receive
$82,026 a year, followed by New York where
lawmakers make $79,500 a year. Both states
also provide per diems.
The panel also remains divided over the
scope of its authority, specically whether it
has the power to change travel and living
expenses. On Thursday, the panel voted to ask
the Department of Personnel Administration
to approve funding for a private attorney to
make a recommendation.

Obamas house now, but his prede-
cessor and political foil, George W.
Bush, stole the show at the White
House on Thursday with his wise-
cracks and grin.
Thank you so much for inviting
our rowdy friends to my hanging,
the former president said, referring
to members of his family and for-
mer staff, invited back to the execu-
tive mansion for the unveiling of his
and Laura Bushs ofcial portraits.
Behave yourselves, he jokingly
admonished his crowd.
Bush told the current president he
was pleased to know that when
you are wandering these halls as
you wrestle with tough decisions,
you will now be able to gaze at this
portrait and ask, What would
George do?
Free from the stress of the presi-
dency and after three years spent
largely out of the spotlight, a
relaxed and jovial Bush came back
with his father, former President
George H.W. Bush, for a rare gath-
ering of three commanders in chief.
Former rst lady Barbara Bush was
there, too, as were George W. and
Lauras daughters, Jenna and
While Bush, Obama and their
wives spoke about the warmth
between their families, there was lit-
tle of that on display between the
two presidents. They traded hand-
shakes but no hugs. There was little
casual small talk as they entered and
exited the East Room or as they
stood on stage together.
We may have our differences
politically, but the presidency tran-
scends those differences, Obama
That the relationship between
Obama and Bush is cordial but not
close is hardly a surprise.
Obama is still bad-mouthing
Bushs time in ofce, blaming him
for the economic crisis, the soaring
federal debt and the unnished wars
the Democrat inherited from his
Republican predecessor. And in the
midst of an election season, Obama
is trying to lump the economic poli-
cies of his current Republican rival,
Mitt Romney, in with Bushs.
Standing side by side in the
grand, chandeliered East Room,
Obama was mostly formal and sub-
dued while Bush was lighthearted
and engaging, relishing in the warm
greetings from veterans of his two
terms in ofce.
Bush said he was pleased that the
White House portrait collection
now starts and ends with a George
W. Noting that George
Washingtons portrait was famously
saved by rst lady Dolley Madison
when the British burned the White
House in 1814, Bush pointed to his
own portrait and told Michelle
Obama that if anything happens,
theres your man.
Alongside Obama, George W. Bush steals the show
Justice Dept. unlikely

cial said Thursday it is unlikely that the Justice Department
will retry John Edwards.
The ofcial made the comment after the
campaign nance fraud case ended in a
The official spoke on condition of
anonymity about an issue that will undergo
much review inside the government in the
coming days.
The case ended with the jury unable to
decide whether Edwards used money from
two wealthy campaign donors to hide his
pregnant mistress while he ran for president and his wife was
dying of cancer.
The case was considered by some legal experts as difcult to
prosecute, revolving as it did around the arcane world of cam-
paign nance law.

House rejects
sex-selection abortion ban
Thursday fell short in an effort to ban
abortions based on the sex of the fetus
as Republicans and Democrats made
an election-year appeal for womens
The legislation would have made it
a federal crime to perform or force a
woman to undergo a sex-based abor-
tion, a practice most common in some
Asian countries where families want-
ing sons abort female fetuses.
It was a rare social issue to reach
the House oor in a year when the
economy has dominated the political
conversation, and Republicans,
besieged by Democratic claims that
they are waging a war on women,
struck back by trying to depict the
vote as a womens rights issue.
It is violence against women, said
Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., of abor-
tions of female fetuses. This is the
real war on women.
The White House, most
Democrats, abortion rights groups
and some Asian-American organiza-
tions opposed the bill, saying it could
lead to racial proling of Asian-
American women and subject doctors
who do not report suspected sex-
selection abortions to criminal
Presidential ad
spending hits $87 million
NEW YORK President Barack
Obama and Republican Mitt Romney
and their allies so far have spent a
jaw-dropping $87 million on TV ads
in just a handful of presidential battle-
ground states, an early and unprece-
dented explosion of spending for a
general election still a full ve
months away.
The avalanche of ad dollars is larg-
er in size and scope at this point that
in any previous campaign, fueled by
the closeness of the race, a prolifera-
tion of deep-pocketed independent
groups and an eagerness on both sides
to frame the debate before summer
when voters pay little attention.
The presidential race has been sur-
prising to us the amount of it and
the early entry, said Mike Lake, sales
director for KCRG-TV, the largest
station in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. But
this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Around the nation
By Andrew Taylor
Republican-controlled House
Thursday debated legislation to
boost health care spending for vet-
erans and funding to compensate
record numbers of Iraq and
Afghanistan war veterans claiming
service-related disabilities as they
return to the United States.
Roughly half of the $148 billion
measure is for veterans pensions
and disability payments over which
lawmakers have little practical con-
trol. That includes a 20 percent,
$10.5 billion increase for such pay-
The Associated Press reported
earlier this week that 45 percent of
the 1.6 million veterans from the
wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are
now seeking compensation for
injuries they say are service-related.
About 1.2 million people are
expected to le for disability claims
next year on top of a backlog of
almost 1 million applicants.
The measure also boosts funding
for Veterans Administration medical
services in 2014 by $2.2 billion, a 5
percent increase that came even as
the VA revealed earlier this year that
it had overestimated medical care
costs by $3 billion for the ongoing
budget year and $2 billion for next
VA medical programs are budget-
ed more than a year in advance to
insulate them from the ups and
downs of the budget process.
The veterans measure is perhaps
the most popular of the 12 annual
spending bills and was expected to
get a sweeping vote despite a White
House veto threat issued on
Wednesday. The White House threat
didnt involve the veterans measure
itself. Instead, it was in protest over
moves by GOP leaders to break
faith with last summers budget deal
by cutting overall funding for
agency operating budgets by $19
billion, almost 2 percent.
The veto promise doesnt nd
fault with the funding levels in the
veterans measure itself. Instead, it
says that the GOP moves on spend-
ing will force deep cuts to domestic
programs like education, research
and health care in subsequent legis-
A close vote was expected on an
amendment to strip a provision pre-
venting the VA and Pentagon from
requiring contractors to sign project
labor agreements to secure federal
contracts. Such agreements require
contractors to negotiate with union
ofcials, recognize union wages and
generally abide by collective-bar-
gaining agreements.
The outcome of the labor-related
provision could inuence the num-
ber of Democrats who would vote
for the measure.
Disability claims from Iraq and
Afghanistan war veterans are run-
ning much higher than from veter-
ans of prior conicts. An estimated
21 percent of veterans led claims
after the rst Gulf War in the early
1990s, government ofcials say.
Whats more, these new veterans
are claiming a greater number of
ailments than veterans of prior con-
flicts like the Vietnam War and
World War II.
Many factors are driving the dra-
matic increase in claims the
weak economy, more troops surviv-
ing wounds and more awareness of
problems such as concussions and
post-traumatic stress disorder, or
Disability payments range from
$127 a month for a 10 percent dis-
ability to $2,769 for a full one.
The measure also funds $10.6 bil-
lion worth of military construction
House takes up veterans funding bill
LOS ANGELES Legalizing
marijuana is gaining traction in
many places but apparently not in
California, the state where the idea
first took root.
Half of California voters sur-
veyed say they oppose broad legal-
ization, while 46 support it,
according to a University of
Southern California Dornsife/Los
Angeles Times poll released
Thursday. The survey found opin-
ions have not measurably changed
since 2010, when California voters
defeated Proposition 19 that would
have allowed recreational use of
the drug.
A national Gallup poll recently
showed support for legalizing pot
had reached an all-time high of 50
percent. Behind such momentum,
marijuana advocates have succeed-
ed in getting initiatives qualified
for the upcoming November ballot
in Colorado and Washington.
The USC/LA Times poll found
California voters overwhelmingly
support doctor-recommended use
of marijuana for the severely ill,
with about 80 percent in favor of
medical marijuana for the termi-
nally ill and severely disabled.
The San Francisco Bay Area was
the only region in the state where a
majority 55 percent favors
legalization. That compares with
41 percent in Southern California.
Those against marijuana use
were more adamant in their posi-
tion, with 42 percent feeling
strongly about it compared with
33 percent for proponents.
Twenty-eight percent of
Republicans and 50 percent of
Democrats polled liked the idea of
marijuana legalization. Sixty-eight
percent of Independents favor it.
Age also was a factor. Fifty-
eight percent of those in their late
teens and 20s support legal recre-
ational use while just 28 percent of
those older than 64 approve gener-
al use.
While California allows medical
marijuana, it leaves the regulation
of dispensaries where the drug is
dispersed to local communities. In
some places, the proliferation of
dispensaries has angered citizens
and prompted federal authorities
to shut down some. The U.S. gov-
ernment does not allow legal use
of medical marijuana.
The poll numbers suggest
Californians are concerned about
implementation of the
Compassionate Use Act, the med-
ical marijuana law passed by vot-
ers in 1996, according to Dan
Schnur, director of the Jesse M.
Unruh Institute of Politics at USC.
They like the idea of providing
marijuana for medical use, but
theyre worried that the law is
being abused, he said.
Dale Gieringer, coordinator of
the state chapter of the National
Organization for the Reform of
Marijuana Laws, said California
needs to better regulate medical
pot distribution before the public
will embrace general use.
Voters are hesitant to liberalize
the marijuana laws any further
until the chaos of the current sys-
tem is worked out, he said.
The statewide telephone poll of
1,002 registered voters was con-
ducted May 17-21. The margin of
error is 3.5 percentage points.
Voters not hot for legalizing pot

101st Airborne
Parade thank you!
On behalf of my 91-year-old grandfa-
ther, Stan Wilson Jr., I would like to
profoundly thank the city of San
Mateo, parade organizers/volunteers
and the Vietnam veterans for last week-
ends parade.
While his memory is fading,
Grandpas excitement was uncontained
when he read about the planned 101st
Airborne events. I believe he was the
only World War II 101st Airborne
Screaming Eagle who attended.
Upon learning Grandpa was there,
organizers quickly seated him with
other VIP veterans so he was able to
enjoy a front-row seat for the parade.
Veteran soldiers and current soldiers
alike would stop and shake Grandpas
hand to thank him for his service. A
few even asked to pose for a photo with
him. I dont know that he quite under-
stood what all the hullabaloo was
about, but he knew people were happy
to see him. He even surprised me with
a st pump of sorts when his name was
announced over the loudspeaker.
One vet, in a wheelchair, too, was so
thrilled to meet one of the originals,
he just sat with Grandpa, gushing, dur-
ing a prolonged handshake. My family
and I will always cherish that wonder-
ful day Grandpa was a part of, and the
amazing photos we now have of those
priceless moments.
It was a day to remember our troops,
past and present. It was also the day it
nally dawned on my 12-year-old son
just how great his great-grandfather
truly is.

State propositions
Proposition 28-YES
Proposition 28 would extend the
amount of time a legislator can hold
office in either the state Senate or
Assembly to 12 years but reduce the
amount of time a legislator can hold
office in both houses of the state
Legislature from 14 to 12. A yes vote
means state legislators can be more
effective in one house, while not think-
ing about making the jump to another
house. Term limits means legislators
often spend too much time running for
office rather than conducting the busi-
ness of the state. This proposition
would allow a constant tenure in one
of the states legislative bodies.
Proposition 29-NO
Proposition 29 imposes an additional
$1 per pack tax on cigarettes and an
equivalent tax increase on other tobac-
co products. Revenue produced from
this tax would fund research for cancer
and tobacco-related illnesses. While
this proposition is a step up
from other similar proposals
that seek to fund unrelated
programs from cigarette
taxes in that the revenue
produced will go toward
disease research, but now is
not the time to create a new
government program funded
with tax money. In addition, the
majority of cigarette smokers are low-
income and a new tax on that popula-
tion is an unfair burden.
County measures
Measure T-NO
Measure T imposes a 2.5 percent busi-
ness license tax on vehicle rental busi-
nesses operating in unincorporated
areas of the county. It requires a
majority vote to pass. This measure is
aimed at the San Francisco
International Airport and seeks $7.75
million a year for the county govern-
ment. Ostensibly, it will tax out-of-
town visitors but could make large
meeting and convention planners con-
sider taking their business elsewhere.
In addition, air travel at SFO is
rebounding, but it has been a long road
since the downturn after the terrorist
attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It is too ten-
uous a time to create any disincentive
for air travel to the area and add risk
to local business owners who depend
on tourist revenue.
Measure U-YES
Measure U increases the existing tran-
sient occupancy tax from 10 percent to
12 percent in the unincorporated areas
of the county and brings it in line with
similar taxes imposed by local cities. It
requires a majority vote to pass. This
measure would mean a modest increase
to the hotel tax in the unincorporated
areas of the county approximately
$1.50 for a $75 a night visit. It aims to
raise approximately $200,000 a year
for the county government.
Measure W-YES
Measure W is a $67 parcel tax
to improve education at ele-
mentary and middle
schools in the Redwood
City Elementary School
District. It requires
two-thirds vote to pass. In
the last five years, the dis-
trict has had to make due
with $13 million in cuts in the
last five years and no one has had a
raise. The current student to teacher
ratio is 30 to 1 a number which
most people agree is too high for
effective education. The parcel tax will
not cure the districts ills but it is a
modest measure to assist it in a tight
fiduciary time and is certainly warrant-
ed this year.
Measure X-NO
Measure X imposes an 8 percent busi-
ness license tax on commercial park-
ing facility operators in unincorporated
areas of the county. It requires majori-
ty vote to pass. This measure would
likely be passed on to customers,
many who live in this county and use
these facilities when taking flights
from SFO elsewhere.
Measure Z-YES
Measure Z will mean the continuation
of a parcel tax of no higher than $65
for four more years County Fire
Service Area 1, also known as the
Highlands. It requires two-thirds vote
to pass. The county currently contracts
with the California Department of
Forestry and Fire Protection for cover-
age of its unincorporated areas like the
Highlands but voters there also pay an
additional amount of $65 per parcel to
increase the level of service. The tax
was set at $65 in 1996 and generates
approximately $92,000 annually.

Recommendations for the June election
hink of facts and knowledge as powerful vac-
cines that protect us from surrendering to irra-
tional beliefs. Rebecca Costa, The
Watchmans Rattle.
The people who were vying
for the Republican nomination
for president a few months ago
never failed to amaze!
Watching them perform at the
many debates and hearing
some of the outrageous things
they said, one wondered if any
of them had any convictions of
their own or just spouted off
whatever they thought might be
the most politically advanta-
geous. Wouldnt it have been
astounding, for instance, to
have heard one of them say that, like Warren Buffet, theyd
come to believe that it really wouldnt hurt the top 1 percent
to part with a few more tax dollars to ease the decit? Or
what if Mitt Romney had said, Yeah, I support the
Massachusetts health plan and Im proud of it?
Unfortunately, that would have been the end of any chances
for nomination, but wouldnt the honesty have been refresh-
Then I thought of something else that would throw a mon-
key wrench in the works of a person attempting to run for
president. Suppose he proclaimed that he was an atheist (or
agnostic). Wouldnt that start a media frenzy! Of course, his
chances to even continue as a presidential possibility would
be nil, no doubt as bad as if he were to say he was gay or
had been incarcerated. And, of course, he would also be
shunned and, heaven knows, all of the evangelicals would
pray for him to see the light. Even if this presidential con-
tender would be a very honest, intelligent, well-qualied,
straightforward, realistic, decent, responsible and thoughtful
person who has the best interest of the United States at heart,
forget it! Because he would be honest about his beliefs,
scratch his chances!
In a speech in 2004, Bill Moyers stated: When ideology
and theology couple, their offspring are not always bad but
they are always blind. And there is the danger; voters and
politicians alike, oblivious to the facts.
This person would be up against a hostile army of believ-
ers who would no doubt proclaim that if an atheist were to
be president, it would be the end of the United States. Never
mind that a clueless president who believed he was selected
by God to lead this country let his wily advisors get us into a
preemptive war that resulted in the deaths of more than
4,500 of our military and close to 100,000 Iraqis and, after
almost nine years, was nally declared over last December.
Too bad more in Congress hadnt been able to read Jesus Is
Not a Republican, edited by Clint Willis and Nate
Hardcastle, where we nd: The most dangerous rulers
include those who claim to know the will of God.
The evangelical types would never believe that a candidate
(or anyone, for that matter) could be good without God.
Even if this candidate rmly believed that we should all
work together for the good of our country and put aside dog-
matic protestations, he could never convince them that a per-
son doesnt need to have faith in God to be able to make
wise choices for our people and our government.
Wouldnt it be refreshing to hear President Obama say to
those fundamentalists who are so concerned about his reli-
gious afliation and how often he attends services, What
does that have to do with anything? I would like to hear a
reasonable argument from the evangelicals as to what they
think believing in a deity does for presidential candidates.
That they will govern with the Ten Commandments rmly
afxed in their brain? That they will be humble? (Very
unlikely!) That while in ofce they will spread the word of
God? Or maybe they believe what Jerry Falwell once said:
If youre not a born-again Christian, youre a failure as a
human being.
But, as Robert Sheer wrote in Between Religion and
Morality: Repetition of divine commandments is an insuf-
cient guarantee of exemplary behavior, and blind allegiance
to the leadership cadre and moral cant of any church can be
quite dangerous.
Since there is no way a non-believer could be nominated
for president, it might be wise to heed what E.J. Dionne
wrote in Souled Out. The one obligation for political can-
didates in a free, pluralistic society is to express personal
religious views in ways that are accessible to all believers
and non-believers alike and to explain how those views
have a bearing on how they would govern. (Are you listen-
ing Mitt?)
All of this brings to mind the Methodist minister in
Portland, Ore. who displayed unusual insight when he pro-
claimed recently: God prefers kind atheists over hateful

NEW YORK They sold in May and
went away, all right.
With a disappointing nish on
Thursday, the stock market closed what
was by some measures its worst month in
two years. Over ve dismal weeks,
Facebook zzled, a debt crisis in Europe
loomed, and nobody was in the mood to
When May was mercifully over, the
Dow Jones industrial average and other
major indexes had erased most of the
strong gains they built up through March
and held on to in April.
Any time the market dips like this, it
erodes some condence, said Craig
Callahan, co-founder and president of
ICON Advisers in Denver. It scares peo-
ple out of the market. All of the above,
May has done that.
The Wall Street adage holds that
investors should avoid the stock market
for the months of May through October,
commonly known as sell in May and go
It may not be sound strategy all the time
many nancial advisers say its foolish
but this year it looked like good advice.
The Dow lost 820 points for the month,
or 6.2 percent, its worst showing since
May 2010. That month, investors were
spooked by a one-day ash crash in
stocks when a large trade overwhelmed
computer servers.
This May, stocks slid lower all month.
The Dow closed down 26.41 points on
Thursday to end the month at 12,393.45. It
declined on all but ve of 22 trading ses-
The Standard & Poors 500 index
dropped 2.99 points to close at 1,310.33. It
fell 6.3 percent in May, its worst month
since September. The Nasdaq composite
index fell 10.02 points to 2,827.34, and
had its worst month in two years.
On Thursday, investors latched on to a
sliver of good news in the morning: May
sales from retailers like Target and Macys
looked healthy, and sent stock futures
Then the government offered two
unpleasant pieces of economic data. The
number of people applying for unemploy-
ment benets rose to a ve-week high,
and economic growth in the rst quarter of
the year was slower than rst thought.
Underscoring the crisis in Europe, the
head of the European Central Bank, Mario
Draghi, told European leaders that the
setup of the 17-country euro currency
union was unsustainable unless further
steps are taken.
Stocks close dismal month
Wall Street
Stocks that moved substantially or traded
heavily Thursday on the New York Stock
Exchange and Nasdaq Stock Market:
The Talbots Inc., up $1.15 at $2.44
The womens clothing chain said it is being
taken private by Sycamore Partners for $193.3
million, a switch after talks stalled last week.
Gaylord Entertainment Co., up $3.47 at $37.95
The entertainment company says it will sell its

percent, but it warned of tough times ahead.
Bon-Ton Stores Inc., up 61 cents at $5.26
Thanks to higher online sales and demand,the

open at least a year rose 1.5 percent.
The Buckle Inc., down $3.45 at $39.14

missing analyst expectations.
Ciena Corp., up $1.67 at $13.55

helped by 14 percent higher revenue.
TiVo Inc., down 42 cents at $8.54

Big movers
NEW YORK Investors stampeded
into U.S. government bonds Thursday,
driving the interest rate on the 10-year
Treasury note as low as 1.54 percent, a
People were fearful that the U.S. econ-
omy might be hitting the skids at the
same time as Europe is falling apart and
the economies of China and India are
slowing. When investors want to protect
their portfolios they tend to plow money
into U.S. government bonds, which are
considered among the safest in the world
because they are less likely to lose value
and are easily tradable.
The record low rate beat the previous
mark of 1.55 percent, which was set in
November 1945. That was just after the
end of World War II, when government
price controls kept interest rates articial-
ly low to preserve nancial stability.
The record today is even more dra-
matic when you consider that the Fed and
Treasury had an explicit policy of keep-
ing interest rates low after the war, said
Campbell Harvey, nance professor at
Duke University. Harvey said that when
he conducts research on government
monetary policy, he doesnt consider the
interest rates on bonds prior to 1953
because the markets were heavily manip-
ulated by the government then.
Investors were already on high alert
after learning on Wednesday that
Spaniards were pulling billions of
deposits out of their banks, which could
lead to larger bank runs and unhinge an
already fragile debt situation in Europe.
A slew of worrisome U.S. economic
data Thursday unnerved investors further.
Claims for unemployment benets rose
last week to a ve-week high, and a close-
ly watched index of factory output in the
Chicago region fell for a third straight
month to the lowest reading since
September 2009.

Cricket gets prepaid iPhone
NEW YORK Leap Wireless International Inc., the parent
of the Cricket cellphone service, on Thursday said it will be the
rst mainland U.S. phone company to sell recent iPhone models
on a prepaid, no-contract basis.
Starting June 22, Leap will sell the iPhone 4S starting at $500
and the iPhone 4 starting at $400. Service will cost $55 per
month for unlimited calls, texting and data.
Leap Wireless International Inc., which is based in San Diego,
focuses on selling no-contract service to low-income house-
holds. Its own network is limited to certain cities. In other
places, it uses Sprint Nextel Corp.s network.
The iPhone is compatible with only part of Leaps network,
and the company is limiting sales to those areas, which include
Houston and Austin, Texas; Portland, Ore.; Pittsburgh; Denver;
and Salt Lake City.
Leap said the arrangement will be available in areas covering
about 70 percent of its 6.2 million subscribers. Leap is the sixth-
largest cellphone company in the U.S., as measured by number
of subscribers.
Open Mobile, which serves Puerto Rico, became the rst U.S.
company to start selling the iPhone 4 and 4s on a no-contract,
prepaid basis on May 18.
Facebooks stock up 5 pct after three days of losses
NEW YORK Facebooks stock has regained some of its
losses from the past few days.
The stock jumped $1.41, or 5 percent, to close Thursday at
$29.60. That comes after three consecutive days of declines. The
stock is still down 22 percent since its highly anticipated initial
public offering two weeks ago.
Facebook Inc. began trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market on
May 18. The day started with a delay due to trading market
glitches and didnt get much better from there.
The company, along with the investment banks that led the
IPO, is also the subject of at least two shareholder lawsuits. They
allege that analysts at the large underwriting investment banks
cut their nancial forecasts for Facebook just before the IPO and
told only a handful of clients. Morgan Stanley has declined to
comment. Facebook calls the lawsuits without merit.

STANFORD The last time Pepperdine
senior Tony Cooper was involved in a champi-
onship dogpile, his San Carlos Joe DiMaggio
team was celebrating its 2009 state title win.
San Bruno native Tom Harlan recently tasted
championship glory. The former Riordan stand-
out helped Fresno State to its seventh straight
Western Athletic Conference championship with
two pivotal starts in last weeks WAC
Tournament, including seven strong innings in
Sundays decisive 13-inning win over
Sacramento State.
Now, each are poised for a run at Omaha, as
NCAA regional play begins today at Stanfords
Sunken Diamond. Round-robin play begins at 1
p.m. with Pepperdine taking on Michigan State,
followed by a 6 p.m. matchup between Stanford
and Fresno State.
For Cooper, the chance to return home on the
Division I stage is a dream come true. After
graduating Serra in 2008, while his fellow
inelders Tony Renda and Ryan Allgrove were
going the Division I route, Cooper took to the
JUCO circuit at Santa Barbara City College in
2009, before transferring to Caada College in
Just getting to play DI baseball was impor-
tant to me, because I didnt think I was that
good, Cooper said.
After hitting .437 at Caada, Cooper received
some recruiting attention, including interest
from some Big-10 schools. But the opportunity
to play on the West Coast was too good to pass
up. His father, Tony Sr., even purchased a used
minivan to commute between Malibu and home.
A homecoming at Sunken Diamond
Making his rst start since graduating Carlmont High School in 2011, San Mateos Daniel
Madigan pitched four innings and allowed one hit in the Shockers 3-1 win over the Burlingame
Breakers Thursday to begin the 2012 American Legion summer season.

It appears that Collin Theroux falls out of
bed with a bat in hand ready to hit.
In a game that lacked any real reworks, it
was the outelders at-bat that lit a spark under
San Mateos Post 82 in the top of the eighth
inning with the score tied at one against
Up until his thunderous two-run double,
which was the difference in a 3-1 win for San
Mateo, the game was marred by defensive
mistakes and runners stranded all over the
We couldnt get that one hit that would put
us over the top, said San Mateo assistant
coach Rick Lavezzo. A lot of these kids are
just getting back into the swing of things. So
everyone was a bit rusty.
Everyone except perhaps Theroux, who sat
the majority of the game and came in as a
defensive substitution in the seventh inning.
The story before his two-RBI double was
the return of Daniel Madigan, who made his
rst start since leaving Carlmont as a graduate
in 2011. Madigan spent the 2012 season at the
College of San Mateo in their bullpen and
returned to the mound to pitch four solid
innings of one-hit baseball.
I cannot say enough about our pitching
today, Lavezzo said. Everyone that came in
to pitch did their job.
That statement could encompass
Burlingame starter Drew Ramirez as well. The
Braves starter pitched a perfect rst before
walking Kody Barden to lead off the second.
After Barden stole second, Daniel Strupeni
singled up the middle to advance him to third
with no one out. Nic Bongi picked up the early
RBI on a double-play ground out.
But that was all the damage San Mateo
could muster against Ramirez.
The game stayed at 1-0 during the middle

SAN FRANCISCO Melky Cabrera is a
new marketing phenomenon: Got Melk?
He is piling up nicknames nearly as quickly
as he is piling up hits. Melk Man. Melky Way.
And the old standby from his Yankees days,
Leche milk in Spanish.
Cabrera has attracted quite the following at
AT&T Park, where several men dress in 1950s-
style Melk Man suits in support of San
Franciscos hottest hitter.
Cabrera is surpassing everybodys expecta-
tions in his rst season with the Giants, putting
up such sensational numbers in a San
Francisco-record, 51-hit May that hes now
mentioned in the same breath as Hall of Famers
Willie Mays and Orlando
Cepeda. He is drawing
comparisons to Hall of
Famer Tony Gwynn from
his manager, too.
Wow, Bruce Bochy
said. Thats one of the
most impressive months
Ive seen in all the years
Ive been in this game.
Thats how good hes been.
Hes been a pleasure. Defensively, what hes
done with the bat, hes been a machine this
month. Its hard to believe how many hits hes
gotten and how consistent hes been.
Cabrera who says never in my life has
he had a month like this is getting a kick out
of it all, just dont try to slow him down to talk
about his amazing month. Hid did oblige the
Melk Men the other day by tossing them a
Cabrera batted .429 in May with three
homers, ve triples, seven doubles and 17
RBIs. He hit safely in 25 of 29 games, getting
a single in the eighth inning of Wednesday
nights 4-1 loss to Arizona for his 51st hit. That
matched Randy Winn for most hits in a month
since the club came to San Francisco in 1958.
Obviously, hes on re, Diamondbacks
manager Kirk Gibson said. Hes on a roll.
Cabrera passed Mays and Cepeda in the
The retired Winn, who enjoyed meeting
Cabrera at spring training this year, produced
his 51 hits in September 2005.
Id love to say congratulations on a great
month, on the 51 hits and to continued success
51 hits, thats a lot of hits, Winn said
Thursday. I saw him this spring training and
his swing looked great from both sides. He had
a great year last year and hes kept it going. I
just felt like everything was going my way that
month. I was getting good pitches to hit and I
wasnt missing them. If I made contact,
whether hard or soft, it would nd a hole.
Cabrera also set the San Francisco record for
most hits in May, passing Mays 49 from 1958.
The Say Hey Kid has been around the club-
house this week, and he regularly greets
Cabrera with a friendly hello.

records, but I would like to follow in the foot-
steps of a legend like Willie Mays, Cabrera

The College of San Mateo football coaching
staff spends the non-playing, non-practicing
portion of the year learning about the game
from different perspectives spending time
at coaching clinics with college and profes-
sional programs, or giving coaching clinic
speeches around the country. The Bulldogs
coaching staff is plugged in to the newest
trends emerging around the country.
Now, the CSM coaching staff wants to pass
that knowledge to the local football coaching
ranks. On June 30, the CSM coaching staff
will host a free coaches clinic from 10 a.m. to
3 p.m.
Our coaching staff will be presenting, said
Tim Tulloch, CSM defensive coordinator and
assistant head coach. The presentations will
cover schemes (and) fundamentals for any-
one who wants to come up and talk ball.
[Head coach Bret Pollack] speaks at a
number of these. I do, too. I spoke at Cal a
couple months ago. Brets spoken at
Washington, Nevada. We wanted to do some-
thing for our local guys.
Tulloch said all aspects of the game will be
covered: offense, defense, emerging trends in
the game, practice drills and techniques being
used nowadays. Its basically an opportunity
to get together with the coaching fraternity to
talk shop.
We try to get as much information we can
that are relevant to our (CSM) guys, Tulloch
said. A majority (of the presentations) is
sharing what we do, our schemes, our tech-
niques, our beliefs.
Its great because we have so many coach-
es in the area. We share ideas, learning from
each other to get better.

George Feely was one of the driving forces
in San Mateo girls softball back in the 1970s
and 80s. When he suddenly died of a massive
heart attack in 1989, the San Mateo Youth
Softball Association decided to name the
leagues annual tournament in his honor.
The 25th annual version of the Feely
Classic Tournament will be held June 8-10 at
Chanteloup Field at Beresford Park. Twenty-
four B teams in four age brackets will vie
for tournament glory on the road to the nation-
al championships later this summer.
The feel people get from our tournament is
we truly try to keep [the games] at
Chanteloup, said Michelle Zalba, SMYSA
spokesperson and assistant coach at Hillsdale
High School. Not everyone is running
around to different places.
Other local leagues expected to participate
include San Carlos, Belmont and Burlingame,
but also include teams from Castro Valley,
Livermore and Alameda.
Not only do teams compete for a tourna-
ment title, but theyre helping the community
as well. The cost to play in the tournament
goes toward running the event, while the
money collected from the concession stand
goes into the George Feely Scholarship Fund.
Every year, SMYSA awards scholarship
money to graduating high school seniors on
the Peninsula who played youth softball.
Many of the recipients grew up playing for
SMYSA, but it is not required. Zalba said one
of this years winners played in the Foster
City league.
One of the few requirements is the player
must live in San Mateo, Foster City or
Hillsborough. Prospective scholarship win-
ners must ll out an application and include
an essay about what softball has meant to
them, as well as two reference letters usu-
ally from a teacher and coach. They must also
have at least a 2.8 GPA.
Zalba said the league has distributed more
than $120,000 over the years, including ve
recipients this year.
Last year, ve girls got $1,200 (each),
Zalba said.
As for the SMYSA Slammers teams them-
selves, they got off to a good start to the sum-
mer season, as the organization won four age-
group titles at the 13th annual Jan
MacPherson Memorial Softball Tournament
hosted by San Carlos. The Slammers 14U,
12U and 10U B teams, along with the 10U
C squad, captured championships.
Feely Classic slated for next weekend
Mercy-Burlingame shares WBAL title
In her rst season leading the Mercy-Burlingame softball team,
head coach Jenna Kim literally turned the program around.
In 2011, the Crusaders were 3-9 in West Bay Athletic League
play and nished second to last in the Foothill Division standings.
But 2012 was a completely different story as Mercy turned their
league record upside down at 9-3 and captured their a share of the
WBAL title.
And for their league efforts, there was plenty of hardware to go
around at seasons end.
First Team All-League honors were given to junior pitcher and
shortstop Marka Ballard and to freshman Samantha Dean.
Second-team honors went to sophomore third baseman Sabrina
Miller and Honorable Mention honors went to second baseman Ix
Chell Mendieta de la Torre.
Kim presented Ballard the team Most Valuable Player award for
a well-rounded year both in the pitching circle and at the plate.
The Most Improved Player award was presented to senior out-
elder Trina Nicholas for her constant desire to work hard, her
improvement as a player from the beginning to the end of the sea-
son and her positive attitude all season long.
The coveted Coachs Award, given for leadership, work ethic
and positive attitude went Mendieta de la Torre.
Ballard led Mercy in hitting with a .491 batting average. She
was also tops in slugging percentage (.737) and on-base percent-
age (.508) as well as wins with six.
Dean led the team in stolen bases with 11and runs scored with
Miller, the leadoff hitter, hit with power, leading the team in
RBIs with 18, home runs with 4 and doubles with 6.
Rowing camp coming to Serra
With the success of several local athletes who participate in
the sport of rowing, Serra High School is looking to train the
next generation of potential Olympic champions.
Serra Next Level Crew Camp is an introduction to competi-
tive high school sweep rowing designed for prospective stu-
dent-athletes with little or no experience in the sport.
All activities will take place at Serras boathouse (Bair
Island Aquatic Center) on the Port of Redwood City.
Campers will be introduced to both technical and physical
elements of the sport, beginning on the indoor rowing machine
and progressing to eight-man shells on the water.
Next Level Crew Camp takes place from July 30 to August 3
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m and will be led by Serra coach Adam

career-bests with 19

the Oklahoma City
Thunder snapped San
Antonios 20-game win-
ning streak by beating the
Spurs 102-82 in Game 3
of the Western
Conference finals on
Thursday night.
Oklahoma City closed its series decit to 2-
1 and will host Game 4 on Saturday night.
Sefolosha threw a wrench in the Spurs
well-oiled offense at the start, getting four
steals in the rst 3 minutes. The Spurs ended
up committing a postseason-worst 21
turnovers and scoring their least points all sea-
Tony Parker and Stephen Jackson led the
Spurs with 16 points apiece. Tim Duncan
had 11 points on 5-for-15 shooting, taking
11 of San Antonios first 25 shots as the
offense went through the All-Star center
instead of Parker.
San Antonio had been averaging 109.4
points during its month-and-a-half winning
streak and had been held to double digits
only twice.
The Spurs, who already set an NBA record
for the longest winning streak carried over
from the regular season into the playoffs,
were trying to match the league mark for most
wins to start the postseason. The Lakers won
11 straight to start the 1989 and 2001 play-
offs, getting swept in the NBA nals the rst
time and winning it all the second.
The Spurs last loss was to the Lakers at
home on April 11.
Parker and Duncan didnt play in the nal
15 minutes, and coach Gregg Popovich pulled
the plug after another series of three straight
turnovers allowed the decit to reach 23
points early in the fourth quarter.
Sefolosha had a right-handed dunk off a lob
pass from Russell Westbrook, who followed
with his own two-handed jam on an alley-oop
pass and Sefolosha followed with a reverse
layup on another turnover-fueled fast-break
chance to push the lead to 86-63 with 9:48
The Thunder put together another 9-0 run
coinciding with Manu Ginobili coming out of
the game, and featuring Serge Ibaka sticking
his tongue out after nailing a jumper from the
top of the key. Coach Scott Brooks soon fol-
lowed suit and pulled his own front-line play-
ers with the game well in hand.

the chaotic scene in a parking lot where the man

Asked during a hearing if she saw anything
that caused her alarm, Joann Cerda, who stood
over victim Bryan Stow as he lay motionless,
said, Yes. Blood gushing from his ears.
She said she didnt think Stow was still alive.
The testimony came at a preliminary hearing
where a judge will determine if there is enough
evidence for defendants Marvin Norwood and
Louie Sanchez to stand trial on charges of may-
hem, assault and battery,
and inicting great bodily

skull and suffered damage to his brain.
He is now unable to walk, has lost motor
skills in his arms and hands, cant carry on a
normal conversation, and is unable to control
his bodily functions or care for himself, the
lawyers said.

cutor Michele Hanisee asked.
No, she said. He wasnt moving.
Cerda said she thought Stow didnt see the

fell backward, hitting his head on the pavement
with a loud smashing sound. She said he
appeared unconscious as he fell.

him kicked him in the head twice as he lay

When Pepperdine came knocking at the door, it was kind of a no-
brainer, Cooper said.
Cooper hit at a .309 clip this season, though 46 of his 50 hits were
singles. That hasnt stopped Pepperdine manager Steve Rodriguez
from utilizing Cooper as his cleanup hitter.
It was defensive versatility that helped Cooper crack the lineup
last season. A natural second baseman, Cooper converted to the out-
eld, as he didnt stand to receive much playing time with Joe Sever
in the mix. Sever is a junior who earned a third-team All-American
nod this year after his .370 average placed second in the race for the
West Coast Conference batting crown.
Fresno-San Bruno pipeline
Last season, Fresno State boasted the WAC Pitcher of the Year in
former Capuchino and Skyline standout Greg Gonzalez. With
Gonzalez gone, Harlan has picked up the mantle of Bulldogs starters
from San Bruno.
Harlan is the quintessential crafty and colorful southpaw. To look
at him, one might confuse him with Texas Rangers lefty Derek
Holland. The loose and somewhat offbeat demeanor doesnt hurt.
Neither does Harlans outstanding showing in 2012.
Harlan is among the team leaders in every signicant pitching cat-
egory, including tops among starters in ERA (2.73) and innings
pitched (101 1/3), tied for best in wins (7), and second in strikeouts
The left-hander is expected to take the hill either Saturday or
Sunday, with sophomore lefty Tyler Linehan scheduled to take the
ball in tonights opener. The Bulldogs strong rotation rounds out
with junior right-hander Justin Haley, who is 7-3 with a 2.98 ERA
this year.
Fresno State also boasts an exceptional defensive catcher in
Austin Wynns. Among his many tools behind the dish, Wynns
owns an exceptional throwing arm, having gunned down 45 percent
of would-be base stealers this season.
Stanfords ace of aces
Mark Appel is set to take the ball today in what could be his nal
start at Sunken Diamond. The right-handed junior is embarking on
what stands to be a whirlwind June, between leading the Cardinal
postseason charge and guring to have his name called as one of the
top picks in next weeks Major League Baseball draft.
The honors have been piling up for Appel this week. The confer-
ence strikeout king was named to the All-Pac-12 rst team along
with teammate Stephen Piscotty. He was also named as a seminal-
ist for the coveted Golden Spikes Award, given to the top college
player in the nation. And yesterday, he garnered Collegiate Baseball
rst team All-American honors.
But after their ace of aces, Stanfords pitching has been something
of a mixed deck this season. Saturday starter Brett Mooneyham is
coming off an abysmal outing in which he surrendered nine runs
(eight earned) over 3 2/3 innings Saturday in a 15-5 loss to Cal.
Sunday starts had been up in the air as well for the Cardinal staff
until Piscotty, a junior, undertook two-way duty. The junior nailed
down the backend of the rotation by going 3-0 in three starts since
entering the rotation on May 12.
Stanfords lineup is powered by its outeld sluggers Piscotty,
Jake Stewart, and Austin Wilson. The trio combined for 21 home
runs this season, while freshman third baseman Alex Blandino has
proved a die-hard hitter with dangerous power.
Spartans set rotation
Appearing in its rst postseason in 33 years, Michigan State was
the only team willing to conrm its starting three heading into
regional play. Spartans manager Jake Boss will throw senior right-
hander Tony Bucciferro, junior right-hander Andrew Waszak, and
sophomore right-hander David Garner, in that order.
Michigan State advanced to regional play by virtue of an at-large
bid, after being eliminated from the Big Ten Tournament in a 4-3
loss to Indiana last Saturday.
After starting the season by chasing the sunshine for 25 or 30
games in East Lansing, Michigan, Boss marveled at the pictur-
esque baseball weather during yesterdays practice at Sunken
Its beautiful, Boss said. Ive always wanted to come out here
to play. Were excited to be here.

PARIS When it comes to playing on clay, Rafael Nadals excel-
lence is so striking that even the slightest problem can seem like a big
For instance, being forced to save a grand total of two break points
in one match at the French Open.
First set I think was good level. Second one was good at the end,
but in the middle of the set I had some problems with my serve, two
break points in two games, Nadal said Thursday after beating Denis
Istomin of Uzbekistan 6-2, 6-2, 6-0 to advance to the third round.
Istomin didnt convert either, of course. He then won even fewer
points only ve in the six games in the nal set.
The win was Nadals 47th in 48 matches at Roland Garros. His
only loss came in 2009, when Robin Soderling beat him in the fourth
Besides that blip, Nadal has won six French Open titles, and one
more will break the record he shares with Bjorn Borg.
But the second-seeded Spaniard isnt ready to sit back and relax.
There are still some improvements to make.
The serve is the rst one. I think I improved the level of my serve
during the match, but I started the match serving bad, Nadal said.
For the rest, more or less I have to be happy.
For Istomin, there wasnt much to celebrate against perhaps the
best clay-court player of all time.
Istomin ended up with 25 unforced errors while Nadal had only
17 zero in the third set.
Nadal advances
innings with Burlingame threats in the third (they left three
stranded) and fth (where they left two stranded). The Braves
pitching competed after Strupenis single, they didnt allow
a hit until the top of the seventh which was actually an ineld
hit. Burlingame pitching got a huge defensive boost with two
outs in that frame when center elder Cody Johnson went all-
out extension, robbing San Mateo of a run on a superb catch.
Fueled by Johnsons great play, Burlingame out-hustled San
Mateo for the tying run. With one out and Brad Northnagel
pitching, Merrick Balding reached on an error and with some
heads-up base running, took second when the Breakers
defense fell asleep. Hed reach third on an attempted pick-out
play and eventually scored on a double down the left eld line
off the bat of Nick Waldsmith.
They got a runner on third that didnt deserve to be there,
Lavezzo said. But Brad pitched well.
Northnagel pitched well to limit the damage in the seventh
and strike out the side in the eighth.
San Mateo, who left seven runners on base for the game,
was in need of a big hit though. After Dominic Orlando sin-
gled with one out in the eighth and Nick Rich followed with a
walk, up came Theroux.
Theroux wasted absolutely no time and crushed the rst
pitch he saw to left center eld over Johnsons head that plat-
ed the go-ahead and eventual winning runs.
Derek Merryweather got three ground ball outs to Mickey
McDonald at shortstop in the ninth inning to pick up the save
and complete the win.

Buick SUV sets record
By Ann M. Job
It may be hard to believe, but Buick sold
more sport utility vehicles last year than it did
Regal, LaCross or Lucerne sedans.
All the SUVs were Enclaves a high-rid-
ing, upscale family vehicle with seating for at
least seven, a quiet interior, pleasant ride and
decent power.
Notably, even third-row seats in the roomy
Enclave can be used by adults, and theres rel-
atively easy access to the third row, thanks to
a quick-lever release that gets second-row
seats out of the way.
The Enclave also earned a top, ve-star
overall crash test rating from the federal gov-
ernment after posting a ve-star rating in side
crash protection and four out of ve stars in
frontal crash protection.
Pricing is up there, even for a base Enclave.
But prices can still be less than those of some
competitors. Starting manufacturers suggest-
ed retail price is $37,175 for a base, 2012
Enclave with front-wheel drive. The lowest
starting MSRP, including destination charge,
for a 2012 Enclave with all-wheel drive is
All Enclaves have the same 288-horsepow-
er, direct injection V-6 and six-speed automat-
ic transmission.
Fuel economy ratings, which top out at 17
miles per gallon in the city and 24 mpg on the
highway in a front-wheel drive model, are
comparable with other crossover SUVs. But

For example, the 2012 Acura MDX, which
has a starting retail price of $43,925, comes
with a 300-horsepower V-6, six-speed auto-
matic and standard all-wheel drive and is
rated by the federal government at 16/21 mpg.
Tthe 2012 Lincoln MKT, which starts at
$46,160 for a front-wheel drive model, comes
with a 303-horsepower V-6 and six-speed
automatic and has the same 17/24-mpg rating
as the Enclave.
At nearly 17 feet long, the Enclave is
among the larger crossover SUVs. Bumper to
bumper, its just an inch shy of a Cadillac
Escalade with regular wheelbase.
Unlike the Escalade, though, the Enclave
rides on a car-based platform. While riding
higher above the pavement than a regular car
does, passengers ride a bit lower than in the
Escalade. So, while passengers and driver
have good views out the front and sides of the
Escalade, they dont have a huge climb up to
get inside.
The Enclaves exterior styling makes it
seem smaller than it is, and proportions are
Adding to the appealing looks are 19- and
20-inch wheels and tires from the factory,
some with chrome cladding. But the Enclave
grille and headlights seems a bit dated these
days, when light-emitting diode accent lights
and fewer round-nosed grilles are becoming
the norm.
Frankly, the biggest complaint about the
styling is how little the driver can see of
whats behind the Enclave while backing up.
Pillars at the sides of the rear window are siz-
able, and and liftgate metal comes up to meet
the rear-window glass. This made reliance on
the test vehicles rearview camera imperative.
The Enclaves 3.6-liter, dual overhead cam
V-6 benets from direct fuel injection, and the
Enclave feels lively in city trafc and on at
two-lane roads.
Power can come on strongly and torque
peaks at 270 foot-pounds at 3,400 rpm, which
provides acceptable mid-range performance
and gets the 2-ton Enclave up and moving
well. But with several passengers riding in
higher altitudes and up-and-down hills, this
engine can feel tapped.
By comparison, the MDX V-6 delivers 270
foot-pounds at a 4,500 rpm. But the MDX,
with standard all-wheel drive, weighs 230
pounds less than the hefty, 4,780-pound, base
Enclave with front-wheel drive. And
Lincolns MKT has an uplevel engine thats a
turbo, providing 350 foot-pounds of torque at
3,500 rpm.
The Enclaves strong, confident engine
sounds were a nice surprise for a Buick.
Fuel economy, though, barely made it to 18
mpg in combined city/highway travel. The 18
mpg is equal to the combined mileage report-
ed by the federal government for an all-wheel
drive Enclave, and translated into 395 miles
on an $85-plus llup of the 22-gallon gas
The ride in the test Enclave was impressive-
ly quiet.
There was a lightness to the steering but it
was responsive, too. The weighty Enclave
rode with some obvious heft, and passengers
felt the vehicle weight transfer from side to
side during curves.
Front seats were wide and comfortable.
Second-row seats were adjustable captain
chairs that could move forward on tracks to
help adjust legroom between second- and
third-row passengers. Third-row passengers
sit across a cushioned bench that rests closer
to the oor than the rst two rows, but theres
still good headroom back there of 37.8 inches,

BOSTON A battle over a federal law that
denes marriage as a union between a man and
a woman appears headed for the Supreme
Court after an appeals court ruled Thursday
that denying benets to married gay couples is
In a unanimous decision, the three-judge
panel of the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
in Boston said the 1996 law deprives gay cou-
ples of the rights and privileges granted to het-
erosexual couples.
The court didnt rule on the laws more polit-
ically combustible provision that states
without same-sex marriage cannot be forced to
recognize gay unions performed in states
where its legal. It also wasnt asked to address
whether gay couples have a constitutional right
to marry.
The law was passed at a time when it
appeared Hawaii would legalize gay marriage.
Since then, many states have instituted their
own bans on gay marriage, while eight states
have approved the practice, led by
Massachusetts in 2004.
The court, the rst federal appeals panel to
rule against the benets section of the law,
agreed with a lower court judge who in 2010
concluded that the law interferes with the right
of a state to dene marriage and denies married
gay couples federal benets given to hetero-
sexual married couples, including the ability to
le joint tax returns. The ruling came in two
lawsuits, one led by the Boston-based legal
group Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders
(GLAD) and the other by state Attorney
General Martha Coakley.
For me, its more just about having equali-
ty and not having a system of rst- and second-
class marriages, said plaintiff Jonathan
Knight, a financial associate at Harvard
Medical School who married Marlin Nabors in
I think we can do better, as a country, than
that, said Knight, a plaintiff in the GLAD law-
Knight said the Defense of Marriage Act
costs the couple an extra $1,000 a year because
they cannot le a joint federal tax return.
Opponents of gay marriage blasted the deci-
This ruling that a state can mandate to the
federal government the denition of marriage
for the sake of receiving federal benets, we
nd really bizarre, rather arrogant, if I may say
so, said Kris Mineau, president of the
Massachusetts Family Institute.
Since Congress passed the law, eight states
have approved gay marriage, including
Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Iowa,
New Hampshire, Vermont, Maryland,
Washington state and the District of Columbia.
Maryland and Washingtons laws are not yet in
effect and may be subject to referendums.
Last year, President Barack Obama
announced that the Department of Justice
would no longer defend the constitutionality of
the law. After that, House Speaker John
Boehner convened the Bipartisan Legal
Advisory Group to defend it.

Nigeria Unmasked: Arts of the Benue
River Valley reveals arts and cultures of
diverse peoples who are far less known
and studied than the majority populations
in the countrys northern and southern
Organized in sections following a jour-
ney up the 650-mile-long Benue River,
the exhibition presents artistic forms and
styles associated with more than 25 ethnic
groups. The objects on view embody
meanings and purposes crucial to Benue
Valley peoples as they confront and
resolve life challenges and rites of pas-
sage such as birth, initiation, marriage,
illness and death. Works include maternal
figures, sleek statues, anthropomorphized
vessels, elaborate regalia, masks with nat-
uralistic human faces and masks that
appear as stylized animal-human fusions.
Context for understanding the artwork is
provided by film footage of dynamic,
complex masquerades; maps; photomu-
rals; and written material.

SAN JOSE. The bold designs, rich colors
and dramatic scale of Mark Adams
(1925-2006) pictorial tapestries provide a
visual feast for visitors to the San Jose
Museum of Quilts & Textiles. The exhibi-
tion, entitled Mark Adams, features more
than 25 tapestries, several full-scale
painted studies (cartoons) for tapestry
projects and photographs of the artist by
Minor White and Imogen Cunningham
never before assembled in one exhibition.
Adams played a pivotal role in the Bay
Area fiber art renaissance of the 1960s
through the 1980s. He was commissioned
by the Fine Arts Museums of San
Francisco to design a tapestry that was
woven as an educational feature of the
1976 landmark exhibition Five Centuries
of Tapestry, and this project became the
catalyst for the formation of the San
Francisco Tapestry Workshop, a weaving
atelier and school that produced many of
Adams tapestry commissions as well as
tapestries for Judy Chicagos Dinner
Party project. Three generations of con-
temporary tapestry artists have been
influenced by Adams legacy of tech-
nique, composition and exquisite color.
In his more than 60-year career, Adams
produced a prolific body of work in paint-
ing, tapestry and stained glass. His large-
scale commissions can be viewed at
Temple Emanu-El and Grace Episcopal
Cathedral in San Francisco, and at the
International Terminal of the San
Francisco International Airport, where his
tapestry triptych Gardens (1981-1983)
was recently re-installed following the
new airport construction project.
The San Jose Museum of Quilts &
Textiles is located at 520 South First St.,
San Jose. Mark
Adams work is on view through July 29.

queen. But beyond Stewarts distractingly
inconsistent British accent, she simply lacks
the presence to serve as a convincing warrior
princess. Shes too slight, her Snow White
seems too reticent and insecure as she leads
her minions into battle, and she still relies on
all those Bella Swan tics that dene her per-
formances in the Twilight movies: the sulk-
ing and sighing, the skittish side glances.
Theron, at the opposite end of the spectrum,
tends to get too screechy; with her imposing
height, deep voice and mesmerizing beauty,
shes far more powerful when she dials it
down. Shes long been willing to play deeply
awed and even cruel characters, but here she
gets downright campy at times. Still, she is
always a startling vision to behold in Oscar-
winning costume designer Colleen Atwoods
dramatic, intricate dresses and crowns.
The look and the energy of Snow White &
the Huntsman are what keep it engaging, if a
bit overlong.
Theron, as the magical and manipulative
Ravenna, has married (and quickly killed) the
widower king, locked his daughter Snow
White in a tower and plunged a once-peaceful
realm into a wasteland of misery and strife.
Once Snow comes of age and earns her
fairest-of-them-all status, Ravennas power is
threatened, and nothing short of eating the
princess heart will sustain her.
This sets the lms chase in motion: Snow
White escapes, and Ravenna hires a veteran
huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) to track her
down in a treacherous place known as the
Dark Forest. But instead, this tormented soul
ends up becoming her reluctant protector,
which means Ravenna must send yet another
team of bad guys to find them both.
Hemsworth, the hunky Thor star, continues
to solidify his intriguing screen presence; hes
got the looks and swagger of a bigger, bulkier
Brad Pitt but also gets to show off his vulner-
ability and even some comic timing, too.
And laughs are hard to nd around here,
which is why its so surprising to see our old
friends the dwarves show up; given that every-
thing else about this telling of the familiar
fairy tale is so different, you dont really
expect them. There are eight of them, not
seven, and they certainly dont whistle while
they work; similar to the dwarves in the other
Snow White movie this year, the jokey, ornate
Mirror Mirror, theyre scoundrels and
thieves making mischief in the forest.
But its the way theyre presented once they
meet Snow and the huntsman thats the real
surprise, and it may cause you to do a double
take. Sanders has rounded up a veritable
whos-who of esteemed British character
actors including Ian McShane, Toby Jones,
Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone, Nick Frost and
Eddie Marsan and, through some digital
trickery, seamlessly depicted them as little
Its just one of many examples of meticu-
lous detail in the lm, from the menacing
trees that come alive in the Dark Forest to the
hauntingly enchanted animals and fairies that
greet Snow White and her new posse of pals
as they continue along their arduous trek
toward safety and, eventually, back to the
kingdom to reclaim her rightful throne.
There are no Rodents of Unusual Size, to
borrow from The Princess Bride, but every
other fantastical creature is here so theyd be
right at home. And if there were, Snow would
be the one to slay them. Its certainly
admirable to see this character depicted as a
strong, capable woman rather than a damsel in
distress, and its a great role model for girls in
the audience (although little kids might nd
much of the imagery too nightmarish; adults
might, too, for that matter).
But it does make you wonder how Snow
White, whos been trapped in a tower for the
entirety of her adolescence, knows how to ride
a horse and wield a sword like some bad-ass
in Braveheart.

nominee and three-time winner experimented

dark take on the classic fairy tale.
The idea of the fairy tale sets you free in a
way because you can make it up, Atwood
said. And I love to make up stuff.
She created an armored ensemble t for a
queen by dressing up chain mail with rolled
leather and horsehair trim and topping it off
with a particularly pointy metal crown.
We wanted to have a formidable silhou-
ette, Atwood said, and from a distance its
spooky with the crown and her height and
everything. (Theron stands nearly six feet
tall, the designer added.)
In Sanders version of the Snow White
story, Kristen Stewart portrays the only
woman in the land fairer than Therons evil
queen Ravenna. The queen dispatches a
huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) to kill the
young woman, but instead he becomes her
mentor and protector.
Atwood took on the project after nishing
work on Tim Burtons Dark Shadows, star-
ring Johnny Depp. Atwood and Burton are
frequent and successful collaborators: Her
most recent Oscar was for his 2010 lm
Alice in Wonderland, and she earned nomi-
nations for her costumes in Burtons
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet
Street and Sleepy Hollow.
Atwoods Snow White costumes are
miles and eras away from Dark
They dont resemble each other in any
way, she said, so it was fun to shift from one
to the other and have a whole different world
to think about.
And slide right into. Snow White director
Sanders said Atwoods wardrobes blend
seamlessly into this world, and they speak
volumes about the world and its characters.
Theron agreed. From the wedding dress,
with its architectural shoulders that appear
to be made from bones, to the twice-
embroidered gown that eventually resem-
bles an old, peeling skin, Atwoods cos-
tumes reflect the evil queens obsession
with appearances.
Every costume had a feeling of not quite
what it seems, Theron said. In a way, these
dresses were like torture devices for Ravenna.
I love that because I feel like Ravenna was, in
a way, more torturous toward herself than to
the people she was killing.
To minimize the actual on-set torture,
Atwood employed a team of about 50 people
to help the actors in and out of the elaborate
But the beetle wings remain dangerous.
Thousands of the hard, brittle wings decorate
the evil queens regal dress of silk and metal
Theyre incredibly sharp, so I had to be
careful about how I used them. If you hit
them, you can hurt yourself, the designer
said. Theyre quite treacherous, which really
suited the character.

New York City proposes ban
on large sodas at restaurants
By Samantha Gross
NEW YORK Want to super-size that soda? Sorry, but in
New York City you could be out of luck.
In his latest effort to ght obesity in this era of Big Gulps and
triple bacon cheeseburgers, Mayor Michael Bloomberg is pro-
posing an unprecedented ban on large servings of soda and other
sugary drinks at restaurants, delis, sports arenas and movie the-
Drinks would be limited to 16 ounces, which is considered a
small serving at many fast-food joints.
The percentage of the population that is obese is skyrocket-
ing, Bloomberg said Thursday on MSNBC. He added: Weve
got to do something.
It is the rst time an American city has directly attempted to
limit soda portion sizes, and the soft-drink industry and others
bitterly accused the three-term mayor of creating a nanny state
and robbing New Yorkers of the right to decide for themselves.
The people of New York City are much smarter than the New
York City Health Department believes, Coca-Cola Co. said in a
statement. New Yorkers expect and deserve better than this.
They can make their own choices about the beverages they pur-
The ban is expected to win approval from the Bloomberg-
appointed Board of Health and take effect as soon as March.
City ofcials said they believe it will ultimately prove popular
and push governments around the U.S. to adopt similar rules.
re you about over the pome-
granate trend yet? If so, you
might want to revisit it just
once more. But this time we arent talk-
ing about chugging
the juice or turning
it into fancy cock-
This time its
molasses, a thick,
syrupy concentrate
that is sweet and
tart and as deli-
cious as it sounds.
To explain
molasses, we
ought to start with
the fruit itself. Pomegranates originated
in western Asia and the Mediterranean,
with the best supposedly coming from
Iran. The trees produce large, usually
red orb-like fruits lled with edible
seeds, each of which is covered by a
juice-lled membrane.
The seeds (or rather the juicy mem-
brane around them) have a sweet, tart
and fairly astringent taste. They can be
eaten as is, or crushed to extract the
Likewise, that juice can be consumed
as is or mixed with sugar syrup. The lat-
ter is called grenadine, a popular avor-
ing for cocktails (though many modern
grenadines are synthetic and no longer
made from pomegranate juice).
If you take the unsweetened juice and
boil it down until it is thick and syrupy,
you have pomegranate molasses, a pop-
ular avoring in Middle Eastern cook-
ing. Pomegranate molasses once was
unheard of outside of ethnic markets,
but today can be found in the interna-
tional aisle of most larger grocers.
And if you cant nd it, its easy
enough to make. Buy a bottle of pome-
granate juice (or juice concentrate), then
boil it until it has reduced and become
The thick, deeply red syrup has an
intensely sweet-tart avor that pairs sur-
prisingly well with savory dishes, espe-
cially grilled meats. For example, pome-
granate molasses and walnuts are a clas-
sic avoring for poultry.
Opened bottles can be refrigerated for
long periods. But its not likely to sit
around for long. You dont need to love
Middle Eastern food to love what pome-
granate molasses can do for the foods
you already love. For ideas for using
pomegranate molasses, check out the

cutors once again sought, District
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe called the
length completely reasonable.
For a series of burglaries, that is a
pretty good sentence. We obviously felt
three strikes was appropriate for what
this fellow did, but this is still a very
stern sentence, Wagstaffe said.
In early May, Novak recalled the sen-
tence Barbanica received for stealing
more than $5,500 worth of jewelry from
two San Mateo homes. Judges have the
right to do so within 120 days of imposi-
tion but cannot impose more than the
original term.
Novak said the sentence she gave
Barbanica in January had weighed on
her and greater reection led her to
believe it was not a three strikes case,
Wagstaffe said.
Between October and November 2009
Barbanica worked as a dog walker for
several San Mateo residents who gave
him their home keys so he could fetch
their pets. In those two months, he stole
from three people residing in two of the
homes. Prosecutors said he gave his girl-
friend some of the jewelry and pawned
the rest.
After pleading no contest to two
counts of residential burglary and admit-
ting his priors, Barbanica faced up to 60
years to life in prison. Novak ran the two
terms concurrent and added the decade
for his prior convictions to reach the 35-
to-life sentence. At the time, she said
there was nothing mitigating in his
record to justify not counting the other
Barbanica had four prior convictions
for residential burglary, including a 2000
incident in which he was sentenced to
seven years prison and a 1998 incident
in which he received a year in jail. After
violating probation in that conviction, he
was sent to prison for four years.
Barbanicas criminal history also

By Lou Kesten
The epic fantasy genre has matured
in the last decade, thanks to writers like
Game of Thrones mastermind
George R.R. Martin who are less inter-
ested in the eternal conflict between
good and evil than in the gray areas in
between. Video games have followed
suit, with ambitious adventures like
Dragon Age: Origins, The Witcher
II and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
refusing to define their heroes and vil-
lains so neatly.
So when Diablo III (Blizzard, for
the PC/Mac, $59.99) arrived with the
tag line Evil Is Back, it was hard not
to look at it as a throwback of sorts.
You know who the troublemakers are
in this game: They have red skin, glow-
ing eyes and razor-sharp horns. Its the
devil you know.
Thats not the only thing that will
make players wonder where the devel-
opers have been since Diablo II came
out in 2000. The topdown, gods-eye
perspective takes some readjustment
after years of battling from protago-
nists point of view. Forget about the
open-world exploration of Skyrim;
Diablo III is relentlessly linear. And
the combat, at the default setting,
rarely demands more than hacking and
slashing your way through hordes of
easily dispatched monsters.
And yet, Diablo III is nearly irre-
sistible. You start by choosing a char-
acter from one of five archetypes: the
barbarian and monk, who fight up-
close; the demon hunter, who uses
long-range weapons; and the wizard
and witch doctor, who wield magic.
After a brief video setting up the tale
a falling star has crashed into the
human world, Sanctuary youre
thrust into the fray.
Once you get into its rhythm
fight, collect your rewards, take a
breath before the next fight Diablo
III is very hard to shut down. Much of
that is due to the uncomplicated con-
trols: You can perform most movement
and combat functions by just clicking
the mouse keys. I wouldnt be sur-
prised if theres an upswing in carpal
tunnel syndrome cases a few months
from now.
Theres also a desire to keep playing
just to see whats around the next cor-
ner of the dungeon or over the next
dune in the desert. And for many
Diablo aficionados, that boils down
to loot. Every monster you kill coughs
up something a few gold coins, per-
haps, or a chunk of armor. Tougher
creatures tend to yield more exotic
rewards, but the process is randomized,
so you never know what youll get.
When you get back to town, you can
sell whatever youve gathered and use
the cash to upgrade your weapons and
armor. Or you can trade them with
other players in an online auction
house. Or you can ask the blacksmith
to break down items and use the com-
ponents to build better ones so you
can defeat stronger enemies, which
earns you more valuable stuff. The
whole loot-collecting feedback loop is
as insidiously addictive as anything in
The most irritating element of
Diablo III is the need to have a
steady online connection, even if
youre traveling solo. The online
requirement led to chaos when the
game was first released, as Blizzards
servers werent able to meet 12 years
of pent-up demand.
The situation has been mostly
resolved, but there have been a few
recent occasions when I wasnt
allowed to log on.
The always-connected environment
does let you tackle any of the games
missions with the help of online friends
or strangers. The difficulty automati-
cally increases with multiple players,
and its fun to chat with other humans
in the wastelands of Sanctuary, but the
experience isnt radically different.
After one prolonged session of mon-
ster slaying, as the clock approached 4
a.m., a supporting character asked my
demon hunter: Do you ever become
weary of strife? Of constant fighting?
His response: Rest is a luxury I can-
not afford. Youll feel the same way
after a few hours of Diablo III. Three
stars out of four.
Diablo III, the devil you know
FRIDAY, JUNE 1, 2012
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Youll receive far greater
gratifcation by trying to advance your personal
interests rather than spending time half-heartedly
promoting the positions of another.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Several people with
whom youll be involved will sense that you can be
trusted with certain secrets that theyre bursting
to tell somebody. More than one person is likely to
confde in you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Small talk might be more
pleasing to your ears than weighty subjects. If youre
looking to spend time with friends, fnd those who
dont take themselves or life too seriously.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Choose your words
carefully so that what you say cannot be distorted
or taken out of context and then refect poorly on
you when repeated. Some people are just looking to
make trouble.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If you plan ahead care-
fully, you should be able to make your present efforts
ft comfortably into your future plans and objectives.
Looking to the future has its merits.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Your abilities to re-
search, probe and detect are very astute at this point
in time. Use this day to get in touch with an associate
about a matter on which you sense that he or she
has been holding back.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If someone offers
you some suggestions that are far better than your
thoughts about a matter of mutual interest, dont let
your pride get in the way. It behooves you to employ
the best plan available.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Strive to be me-
thodical where your work is concerned. If you make a
detailed list and follow it to the letter, youll fnd that
it will enhance your productivity and industriousness.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your perceptions
regarding involvements that hold elements of chance
could be more accurate than usual. Dont bet your
entire wallet, but its OK to wager a dollar or two.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- When your family
holds a council about a matter that affects every-
body, dont restrain your opinions. You might be the
one who has ideas that surpass theirs.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Dont be surprised if
your mental processes are working overtime and
your head is fooded with dynamite ideas. Be sure to
jot them down -- many will be better than usual.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Youre likely to have a
good head for spotting bargains right now. You stand
a good chance of fnding something youve wanted
for a long time at the right price. Dont hesitate to
take advantage of the moment.

DATE: June 4, 2012
SUBJECT: Draft Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration Regarding:
Laguna Flood Control Improvement Project
The City of Burlingame (City) is releasing a Draft Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration
(IS/MND) for the subject project for review and comment to all agencies, organizations and inter-
ested persons. Reviewers should focus on the content and accuracy of the Draft IS/MND in dis-
cussing potential impacts upon the environment. Copies of the IS/MND are available for review at
City Hall and the following locations:

Burlingame, CA 94010 Burlingame, CA 94010
Phone: (650) 558-7400 Phone: (650) 340-6180
The Draft IS/MND is being circulated for a 30-day review period. Persons responding are urged
to submit their comments in writing. Written comments should be delivered to the Citys main of-
fice, at the address listed below, by no later than 4:30 p.m. on July 5, 2012. Submittal of written

IS/MND should be directed to Doug Bell, Senior Civil Engineer.
City of Burlingame
Department of Public Works

Burlingame, CA 94010
Attn: Doug Bell, Senior Civil Engineer
(650) 558-7230
Due to the nature of the project, and the Citys need to expedite the environmental review
of this project, your early response prior to the close of the 30-day period is greatly appre-
A public hearing will be held by the City Council at 7:00 pm on July 16, 2012, for the purpose of
considering public comments regarding the Draft IS/MND. Both written comments and oral testi-
mony from the public hearing will be incorporated into the Final IS/MND to be adopted by the City
Council. Please retain a copy of this document. Unless substantial modifications are needed, the
Draft IS/MND plus an addendum may serve as the final document.
The proposed project is a stormwater flood alleviation project that entails excavating sediments
from an existing storm drain ditch parallel to and between the Caltrain tracks and California Drive.
The ditch drains storm water flows westward into Sanchez Creek from approximately Oak Grove
Avenue. Several local storm drains discharge into this ditch along its length. This ditch mainte-
nance will facilitate storm water drainage into Sanchez Creek from the surrounding developed
areas to the south and alleviate flooding. A new box culvert will also be installed under Carolan
Avenue parallel to and north of the Caltrain tracks to replace portions of an existing 54 reinforced
concrete pipeline.

ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent

California, County of San Mateo, 400

written objections with the court before
the hearing. Your appearance may be in
person or by your attorney. If you are a
creditor or a contingent creditor of the
decedent, you must file your claim with
the court and mail a copy to the personal
representative appointed by the court
within four months from the date of first
issuance of letters as provided in Pro-
bate Code section 9100. The time for fil-
ing claims will not expire before four
months from the hearing date noticed
above. You may examine the file kept by
the court. If you are a person interested
in the estate, you may file with the court
a Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-
praisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special No-
tice form is available from the court clerk.

bad years.
Genochio has made ve trips this
year and caught about 100 salmon.
He agreed with Burton that this
season will probably be much better
than the previous year. As he
worked on his boat Helen Ruth, he
said there were some guys who did
not catch anything last year.
Jim, captain of the Westerly, said
he hopes to catch between 15 and 45
sh per day.
Im satised, especially with the
price, he said.
Salmon fishermen are selling
salmon wholesale for $6.50 per
pound. Many fishermen choose to
sell directly from their boats, for
$10 per pound.
Frank Gee, captain of Ocean
Gale, said the high price of salmon
is due to the increasingly health-
conscious communities surrounding
Half Moon Bay. People now know
the quality of this fresh-caught
salmon and they are willing to pay
three times the price for it, he said.
Captain James Smith brings his
boat California Dawn with 15 to 30
passengers out for sport fishing
from Berkeley. Right now, he is tak-
ing the boat about 15 miles out from
Half Moon Bay to sh for salmon.
He hopes that later in the season he
will be able to sh salmon from
close by, seven to 20 miles from his
Berkeley dock.
Smith does not think of his boat
as a salmon boat because up until
this year there have not been many
salmon for which to sh.
We caught salmon, but the num-
bers werent great, he said.
Last year, he mostly shed for
halibut, rocksh and bass. While he
does not primarily sh for salmon,
Smith hopes the salmon population
stays healthy so other sh popula-
tions are not overwhelmed. In years
when the salmon season was closed,
Smith said, the San Francisco Bay
was overcrowded with halibut sh-
It effects the guys shing hal-
ibut, he said. You have to have a
Smith attributed the struggling of
the salmon population to a lack of
water in the rivers where salmon go
to spawn.
We have a big problem with
water diversion, he said.
The pumping of water out of the
Sacramento Delta has damaged the
salmon habitat, he said.
Jim Hie, conservationist for the
Pacific Fishery Management
Council, is worried about the long-
term future of salmon in California.
Its going to be a great year as
the water warms up, but its not as
good as we want it to be, said Hie.
He pointed to the low water sup-
ply in the rivers as a reason for the
depleted salmon numbers. Much of
the water is pumped out of the rivers
and sent down to Southern
California, he said. That means
there is less water owing out to
carry the smolt young salmon
to the Pacic Ocean.
This season will yield the largest
return of spawners since 1974, but
theres no water, said Hie.
The Sacramento Delta and
Klamath River will not be viable
habitats for salmon to return to
unless there are serious changes to
the states water policies, he said.
The 2012 commercial salmon
season off of the California coast,
between Point Arena and Point Sur,
runs from May 1-June 4, June 27-
Aug. 29 and Sept. 1-30.

The U.S. is heaping new pressure
on Russia to change course and
support international action in
Syria, warning that intransigence
by Moscow may lead to open civil
war that could spill across the
Middle East with devastating
Speaking on Russias doorstep in
Denmark, Secretary of State
Hillary Rodham Clinton derided
the Russian government for contin-
uing to support Syrian President
Bashar Assad, even after last
weeks massacre of more than 100
people in the town of Houla. In
pointed remarks Thursday, she said
Russias position is going to help
contribute to a civil war and reject-
ed Russian ofcials insistence that
their stance actually is helping to
ease the crisis.
On the rst stop of a European
tour, Clinton said Russia and China
would have to be on board before
the U.S. and other nations might
engage in what could become a
protracted conict in support of a
disorganized rebel force.
Russia, along with China, has
twice vetoed U.N. Security Council
sanctions against Syria. Russia is
Syrias closest ally other than iso-
lated Iran, and Clinton said that
without its support the international
community is essentially frozen
from taking concrete steps to end
the violence.
The Russians keep telling us
they want to do everything they can
to avoid a civil war because they
believe that the violence would be
catastrophic, Clinton said, noting
that they are vociferous in their
claim that they are providing a sta-
bilizing inuence.
I reject that, she said, com-
plaining that in fact Russia is prop-
ping up Assad as his government
continues a brutal, 15-month crack-
down on dissent in which some
13,000 people have died.
A day earlier, White House
Deputy National Security Adviser
Denis McDonough said the U.S. is
lobbying Russia to distance itself
from its ally Syria and to apply
pressure on Assad to leave ofce. A
negotiated exit similar to one the
U.S. helped broker for Yemens
longtime leader is one possibility,
McDonough said, but he offered lit-
tle optimism that the arguments are
gaining traction.

Lesotho premier resigns;
could lead opposition
cian who led Lesotho for the last 14
years could soon be leading the
opposition after his party failed to
win a majority in parliament in
weekend elections in this mountain-
ous southern African country.
A day after Pakalitha Mosisili
resigned as prime minister, Lincoln
Ralechate Mokose, the secretary
general of his Democratic Congress
Party, said in a telephone interview
Thursday that his party was seeking
partners for a governing coalition.
We will either succeed or fail,
he said. If the party fails, our stand
is to concede and work in parlia-
ment as opposition.
The party secured 48 of parlia-
ments 120 seats during elections
Saturday, more than any other party
but not enough to govern alone.
