Roughly 20 boats with approximately 25 people remain at Petes Harbor,
including seven with engine problems.
By Michelle Durand
Several Petes Harbor residents
pulled up anchor by Tuesday to
meet an eviction date while approx-
imately 20 remained past the mid-
night deadline either to protest or
because theyd received an exten-
sion on leaving.
The refusal of some tenants to
vacate the premises will most likely
set course for court. Seven of the
tenants cant move their boats due to
engine problems, said spokes-

Detective: Prankster
registered as Obama in 2008
PITTSBURGH A Pennsylvania
detective is trying to gure out how an
apparent prankster was able to ll out a
2008 voter registration card signed
Barack H. Obama.
By the time Butler County elections
ofcials processed the card, it went into
the states computerized database with the
last name Obana that is, with an n
in place of the m. But a detective tells the
Associated Press that whoever did it was
clearly trying to register using President
Barack Obamas name.
The card was discovered last week
when a jury commissioner in the county
north of Pittsburgh was compiling a role
of potential jurors which, in Pennsylvania,
can be drawn from voter registration lists.
Detective Scott Roskovski says nobody
voted using the bogus voter registration
card, though lling it out falsely could be
a felony.

HENDERSON, Nev The city man-

Jacob Snow tells the Las Vegas Review-
Journal the logo is too detailed to reprint
clearly on small items such as business
cards. He also says he doesnt like the
images saguaro cactus, which is not
native to the Mojave desert.
The circular logo was adopted in 1993
and features a mountain range, a lake,
buildings and a golf course through the
middle. City spokesman Bud Cranor says
the more than 14 different colors on the
image make it difcult to replicate.
Snow announced in August that he
wanted to change the logo but says he
wants to phase it out over time to keep
costs down.

Police received a complaint of a man tak-

San Mateo may open up some of its parks
for overnight events as both Shelter Network
and the American Cancer Society have
requested to hold fundraising events during
hours when the parks are normally closed.
Municipal code mandates that it is illegal to
enter, use, cross or remain in any park proper-
ty or facility between the hours of 10 p.m. and
6 a.m.
Currently, the city does not allow the Parks
and Recreation Department to issue a permit
to a private group for an outdoor activity after
10 p.m. in city-owned parks.
Two nonprots have recently requested the
use of the parks overnight, however, and the
Parks and Recreation Commission discussed
the item for the rst time last night.
The rst request from Shelter Network was
to raise awareness on the issues of homeless-
ness and the second from the American
Cancer Society was for its annual Relay for
Life fundraiser, which includes a 24-hour
walking relay that includes an overnight
camping component, according to a staff
The commission discussed last night
whether it would be in favor of allowing
overnight special events in city parks and
what conditions might be associated with the
Potential conditions discussed were limiting
overnight events to park locations that can
provide: controlled access and boundaries for
the event; proximity of neighbors to the event;
a limit on the number of events held each
year; limiting the events to nonprot agencies;
added security; noticing to nearby residents;
light standards; and limiting the types of activ-
ities permitted at the events.
Costs to the city incurred beyond the permit
process for the event itself would be reim-
bursed by the permit applicant, according to
the staff report.
The commission provided feedback to the
Parks and Recreation Department last night
and a vote on the item will be made at a future
date if the idea moves forward.

A Millbrae murder suspect recently found
mentally t to aid in his own defense will
stand trial in June for the 2010 stabbing of an
alleged romantic rival near Mills High School.
Laungatasi Samana Ahio, 23, has pleaded
not guilty to charges of murder and the use of
a knife in the Aug. 4, 2010 murder of Jared
Afu. He is also charged with the special alle-
gation of lying in wait which makes him eligi-
ble for life in prison without parole.
On Wednesday, a judge
scheduled his trial for June
10. The setting comes less
than a week after a judge
declared Ahio competent,
echoing the conclusion of
doctors at Napa State
Hospital who sent him
back for prosecution after
a stay last year.
Afus friends reported
seeing him stabbed by Ahio around 11:30
p.m. The next afternoon, a bloodied backpack
containing identication and a bloody knife
was discovered a block from the school, on
the side of the New Vision United Methodist
Church on Chadbourne Avenue. Ahio surren-
dered to police that night.
Authorities suggested Ahio killed Afu over
jealousy involving a girlfriend who he was
convicted in July 2010 of battering.
He remains in custody without bail.

Sheriffs deputies took two suspects into cus-

Wednesday afternoon.
Deputies received a call at 12:27 p.m. alerting
them of an armed robbery at the Plaza Jewelers

woman Rebecca Rosenblatt.
Witnesses say four dark-skinned males in a

bery was recovered. Two suspects remain at

University of California
wants more classes online

Accelerated programs that allow
students to work at their capacity
versus their grade level while
exploring are part of the curriculum
planned for the new independent
high school opening in San Mateo
this fall.
Applications for The Nueva High
School are due this evening. The
rst freshman class will be hosted at
the College of San Mateo for the
schools inaugural year. A new cam-
pus being built on a 2.75-acre por-
tion of the former site of the Bay
Meadows race track will open in
2014. During a meeting of local
ofcials and alums Tuesday morn-
ing, the curriculum and vision for
the new school was discussed by
A pro bono study through
Stanford University showed the
interest for an independent high
school in the area, said Nueva
Executive Director Diane
Rosenberg. Creating a new school
meant lots of input and studying.
School ofcials created a 36-person
expansion task force and visited
more than 50 schools within the
United States and abroad.
The goal was to create a place that
provides academic support without
burning out students.
It needs to be a place where stu-
dents feel connected to their own
experience and have a voice in shap-
ing it, said Mark Schoeffel, found-
ing head of the high school.
With that in mind, Schoeffel
described curriculum that will be
designed by teachers who can teach
higher levels of their subjects.
Students will be able to take classes
based on their ability rather than age
or grade level. There will be oppor-
tunities for electives, language
immersion programs and four years
of college guidance. School will
start at a traditional time but the aca-
demic portion will begin closer to 9
a.m., to allow students to really
wake up and be engaged, Schoeffel
Sports will be offered and added
as interest grows. There will be tra-
ditional competitive sports but also
club-like offerings such as fencing
and crew, he said.
Plans for the San Mateo campus
were approved by the Planning
Commission in December. In the
meantime, studies will be held at
temporary facilities at CSM adja-
cent to the College Center and move
to the new state-of-the-art facility at
the Bay Meadows Phase II develop-
ment in 2014.
The new Nueva high school cam-
pus will feature a 133,000-square-
foot sustainably designed facility on
2.75 acres overlooking a 12-acre
public park, with flexible class-
rooms and seminar spaces, perform-
ing and ne arts studios, science
laboratories and tech shops, an
attached athletic center and gymna-
sium, extensive student and commu-
nity center, two-level writing and

SAN DIEGO California home prices rose
more than 20 percent in December with the
San Francisco Bay area witnessing its sharpest
increase in at least two decades as buyers
competed for scarce inventory, a research rm
reported Wednesday.
The median sales price for houses and con-
dominiums was $299,000, up 21.5 percent
from $246,000 in the same period of 2011,
DataQuick said. It was the 10th straight month
that prices rose from the previous year.
There were 39,760 homes sold in the state,
up 5.4 percent from a year earlier.
The numbers provide the latest evidence of a
housing market recovery marked by thin sup-
plies as sellers sit on the sidelines, anticipating
additional gains. The California Association of
Realtors said Tuesday that its index of unsold
inventory of single-family homes in California
stood at 2.6 months in December, down from
4.3 months a year earlier.
The gure represents how long it would take
to sell all homes at the current sales clip.
Supply in a normal market is considered to be
ve to seven months.
I havent been to a place that had fewer than
ve or six offers, and some had as many as 20,
said Joe Camicia, 30, a land use consultant in
the San Francisco Bay Area who has been
shopping for about a year and lost a bid on a
San Jose home to an all-cash buyer last month.
The median sales price in the Bay Area
reached $442,750 in December, up 32 percent
from $335,500 a year earlier. It was the nine-
county regions highest price since $447,000 in
August 2008 and the sharpest annual percent-
age increase since DataQuick began keeping
track in 1988.
There were 7,832 homes sold in the Bay
Area in December, up 4.5 percent from the
same period of 2011, DataQuick said. Buyers
without a record of a loan meaning they
appeared to have paid cash accounted for
29.3 percent of sales, exceeding the monthly
average of 12.5 percent since 1988.
California home prices rise in December

teaming up with the European Space Agency
to get astronauts beyond Earths orbit.
Europe will provide the propulsion and
power compartment for NASAs new Orion
crew capsule, officials said Wednesday. This
so-called service module will be based on
Europes supply ship used for the
International Space Station.
Orions first trip is an unmanned mission
in 2017. Any extra European parts will be
incorporated in the first manned mission of
Orion in 2021.
NASAs human exploration chief, Bill
Gerstenmaier, said both missions will be
aimed at the vicinity of the moon. The exact
details are being worked out; lunar fly-bys,
rather than landings, are planned.
NASA wants to ultimately use the bell-
shaped Orion spacecraft to carry astronauts
to asteroids and Mars. International coopera-
tion will be crucial for such endeavors,
Gerstenmaier told reporters.
The United States has yet to establish a
clear path forward for astronauts, 1 1/2 years
after NASAs space shuttles stopped flying.
The basic requirements for Orion spacecraft
are well understood regardless of the desti-
nation, allowing work to proceed,
Gerstenmaier said.
You dont design a car to just go to the
grocery store, he told reporters.
Getting to 2017 will be challenging, offi-
cials for both space programs acknowl-
edged. Gerstenmaier said hes not 100 per-
cent comfortable putting Europe in such a
crucial role. But Im never 100 percent
comfortable with spaceflight, he noted.
Well see how it goes, but weve done it
The space station helped build the founda-
tion for this new effort, he said.
Former astronaut Thomas Reiter, Europes
director of human spaceflight, said it makes
sense for the initial Orion crew to include
Europeans. For now, though, the focus is on
the technical aspects, he said. NASA will
supply no-longer-used space shuttle engines
for use on the service modules.
Reiter put the total European contribution

Obamas plan for curbing gun violence
by the National Rie Association, face a
doubtful future in a divided Congress where
Republicans control the House.
Seeking to circumvent at least some opposi-
tion, Obama signed 23 executive actions on
Wednesday, including orders to make more
federal data available for background checks
and end a freeze on government research on
gun violence. But he acknowledged that the
steps he took on his own would have less
impact than the broad measures requiring
approval from Capitol Hill.
To make a real and lasting difference,
Congress, too, must act, Obama said, speak-
ing at a White House ceremony with school
children and their parents. And Congress
must act soon.
The presidents announcements capped a
swift and wide-ranging effort, led by Vice
President Joe Biden, to respond to the deaths
of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook
Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. But
Obamas gun control proposals set him up for
a tough political ght with Congress as he
starts his second term, when hell need
Republican support to meet three looming s-
cal deadlines and pass comprehensive immi-
gration reform.
I will put everything Ive got into this, and
so will Joe, the president said. But I tell you,
the only way we can change is if the American
people demand it.
Key congressional leaders were tepid in
their response to the White House proposals.
Republican House Speaker John Boehners
office signaled no urgency to act, with
spokesman Michael Steel saying only that
House committees of jurisdiction will review
these recommendations. And if the Senate
passes a bill, we will also take a look at that.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-
Nev., said he was committed to ensuring that
the Senate will consider gun violence legisla-
tion early this year. But he did not endorse
any of Obamas specic proposals.
The president vowed to use whatever
weight this ofce holds to ght for his rec-
ommendations. Hes likely to travel around
the country in the coming weeks to rally pub-
lic support and could engage his still-active
presidential campaign operation in the effort.
But hell have to overcome a well-nanced
counter-effort by the NRA.
This will be difcult, Obama acknowl-
edged. There will be pundits and politicians
and special interest lobbyists publicly warning
of a tyrannical, all-out assault on liberty
not because thats true, but because they want
to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for
The president, speaking in front of an audi-
ence that included families of some of those
killed in Newtown, said 900 Americans had
lost their lives to gun violence in the four
weeks since the school shootings.
We cant put this off any longer, Obama
declared. Every day we wait, the number will
keep growing.
Many Democrats say an assault weapons
ban faces the toughest road in Congress.
Obama wants lawmakers to reinstate the
expired 1994 ban on the high-grade weapons,
and strengthen the measure to prevent manu-
facturers from circumventing the prohibition
by making cosmetic changes to banned guns.
The president is also likely to face opposi-
tion to his call for Congress to limit ammuni-
tion magazines to 10 rounds.
But Democrats are hopeful they can build
consensus around the presidents call for uni-
versal background checks. The Brady
Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence says 40
percent of gun sales are conducted with no
criminal background checks, such as in some
instances at gun shows or by private sellers
over the Internet or through classied ads.
The NRA is opposed to all three measures.
In a statement Wednesday, the gun lobby said,
Only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be
affected by Obamas efforts and the nations
children will remain vulnerable to the
inevitability of more tragedy.
And on the eve of Obamas announcement,
the NRA released an online video accusing
him of being an elitist hypocrite for sending
his daughters to school with armed Secret
Service agents while opposing having guards
with guns at all U.S. schools.
White House spokesman Jay Carney called
the video repugnant and cowardly.
The presidents proposals did include a
$150 million request to Congress that would
allow schools to hire 1,000 new police of-
cers, counselors and psychologists. The White
House plan also includes legislative and exec-
utive action to increase mental health services,
including boosting funding for training aimed
at getting young people into treatment more
A lopsided 84 percent of Americans back
broader background checks, according to a
new Associated Press-GfK poll. Nearly six in
10 Americans want stricter gun laws, the same
poll showed, with majorities favoring a
nationwide ban on military-style weapons and
limits on gun violence depicted in video
games, movies and TV shows.
The NRA and pro-gun lawmakers have
long suggested that violent images in video
games and entertainment are more to blame
for mass shootings than the availability of
guns. But Obamas proposals do little to
address that concern, other than calling on the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
to research links between violent images and
gun attacks.

Barack Obama is assembling an
ambitious second-term agenda,
pushing aggressively where he
thinks he has political leverage but
moving more cautiously on issues
where he has less control.
Obama is hiking pressure on con-
gressional Republicans on the debt
ceiling and immigration, two big
issues in which public sentiment
and political risks seem to favor
His refusal to negotiate on the
debt ceiling is an especially sharp
departure from his usually accom-
modating style. Obama is gambling
that Republicans will yield to fears
of a ferocious public backlash if
they leave the government unable to
pay its bills in their push for spend-
ing cuts.
But it is a risk. Unresolved
brinkmanship over the debt ceiling
could lead to an economic calamity
that would damage Obamas second
term and eventual legacy not to
mention Americans lives.
Meanwhile, outrage over the
Connecticut grade school massacre
forced the president to seek a gun-
control package ahead of expecta-
tions. Americans have resisted sig-
nicant gun-limiting bids for years,
however, and the pro-gun-rights
lobby remains powerful. Also,
theres less Democratic unity on this
issue than on
many others.
O b a m a s
allies already
are dampening
expectations on
key compo-
nents, including
an assault
weapons ban.

President Joe Biden, who stood at
Obamas side as the president
announced his proposals on
Wednesday, said, I have no illu-
sions about what were up against or
how hard the task is in front of us. ...
We should do as much as we can, as
quickly as we can.
Among the second terms top-tier
issues, immigration may be the one
in which Obama enjoys the most
leverage. Thats a dramatic change
from his rst term, when it was rel-
egated to the background.
The White House is hinting at a
comprehensive bill this year that
would include a path toward citizen-
ship for millions of immigrants now
in the country illegally.
Many Republicans, stung by
heavy losses among Hispanic voters
in the last two presidential elec-
tions, say they also want to revamp
the nations immigration laws. But

provisions is bound to draw some
conservative re. If Obama goes
big, it could put GOP leaders in a

gun control this year but not match
New Yorks law.
There are too many loopholes in
California when it comes to our

Steinberg said he will support
proposals intended to make it more
difficult to obtain devices that
allow the rapid fire of dozens of

steps to get weapons out of the

Islamists take hostages in Algeria
ALGIERS, Algeria In a desert standoff
deep in the Sahara, the Algerian army ringed a
natural gas complex where Islamist militants
hunkered down with dozens of hostages
Wednesday night after a rare attack that
appeared to be the rst violent shock wave
from the French intervention in Mali.
A militant group that claimed responsibility
said 41 foreigners, including seven Americans,
were being held after the assault on one of oil-
rich Algerias energy facilities, 800 miles from
the capital of Algiers and 1,000 miles (1,600
kilometers) from the coast. Two foreigners
were killed.
The group claiming responsibility said the
attack was in revenge for Algerias support of
Frances military operation against al-Qaida-
linked rebels in neighboring Mali. The U.S.
defense secretary called it a terrorist act.
The militants appeared to have no escape,
with troops surrounding the complex and army
helicopters clattering overhead.
Russian court turns
down Pussy Riot appeal
BEREZNIKI, Russia A Russian court on
Wednesday turned down an attempt by an
imprisoned Pussy Riot band member to defer
serving her sentence for hooliganism until her
preschool son becomes a teenager.
Maria Alekhina asked the court in Berezniki,
a Urals Mountain city near her prison, to let her
serve the rest of her two-year sentence after her
5-year-old son turns 14. She argued that sepa-
ration from her young child now would do
irreparable psychological damage to him.
Alekhina and two other female members of
the punk band were convicted last year of
hooliganism motivated by religious hatred for

WASHINGTON Charities and nonprot
organizations are worried that new limits on tax
deductions for high earners will hurt donations
just as charitable giving is starting to rebound
from the depths of the recession.
Experts doubt the new limits on deductions
will have much impact on giving, but some
major nonprot organizations fear theyre a sign
that the charitable deduction is no longer sacro-
sanct on Capitol Hill, just as Congress is prom-
ising a broader effort later this year to overhaul
the tax code.
The limits on deductions are part of the new
tax law Congress passed on New Years Day.
They reduce the value of all itemized deductions
for individuals making more than $250,000 and
married couples making more than $300,000.
Advocates are concerned the limits will reduce
the tax incentive for people to make donations to
charities and nonprots such as religious institu-
tions, colleges and groups that help the poor.
Charitable giving in the U.S. increased in
2010 and 2011, according to the latest data. But
it has yet to fully return to pre-recession levels,
according to data from the Giving USA
Foundation and the Indiana University School of
Charitable giving by individuals, foundations
and corporations topped $298 billion in 2011. In
2007, it was $337 billion, in ination-adjusted
The new tax provision reduces the amount of
itemized deductions a taxpayer can claim by 3
cents for every dollar of income above the
threshold. For example, if a married couple has
an adjusted gross income of $400,000, thats
$100,000 above the threshold, so the itemized
deductions would be reduced by $3,000.
Itemized deductions cannot be reduced by
more than 80 percent, under the provision.
In this example, if the couple had a total of
$60,000 in itemized deductions, they could
claim only $57,000. If they were in the 33 per-
cent income tax bracket, the provision would
increase their taxes by $990.
The provision is a revival of the Pease limi-
tation, rst enacted in 1990 but phased out in
2010 as part of the massive package of Bush-era
tax cuts. It is named after a deceased congress-
man, Rep. Donald Pease, D-Ohio, who wrote
the measure.
Experts say there is no evidence that the limi-
tation reduced charitable giving in the past, and
no reason to think it will have much of an impact
going forward. Charitable giving steadily
increased in the 1990s, when the economy our-
The new law increases the top income tax rate
from 35 percent to 39.6 percent on taxable
income above $400,000 for individuals and
$450,000 for married couples. It also increases
the top tax rate on long-term capital gains for
taxpayers with incomes above those thresholds.
Both provisions increase incentives for people
to make charitable donations, according to the
analysis of the law by the Urban Institute Center
on Nonprots and Philanthropy.
For example, if a married couple has a top
income tax rate of 35 percent, a $1 deduction
will lower their tax bill by 35 cents. If that same
couple has a top tax rate of 39.6 percent, a $1
deduction will lower their tax bill by nearly 40
cents, making the deduction more valuable.
Similarly, the higher tax rate on capital gains
increases the incentive to donate securities to
charity as a way to avoid those taxes, said
Eugene Steuerle, a fellow at the Urban Institute
who worked on the analysis.
The Pease limitation, meanwhile, should have
a negligible impact on charitable giving because
it is based on income, not on the amount of
deductions, Steuerle said.
Nevertheless, nonprots and charities are
wary of any provision that could limit the chari-
table deduction.
We just know that this change is denitely
not going to be helpful, said Gloria Johnson-
Cusack, executive director of Leadership 18, an
alliance of CEOs of charities, non-prots, and
faith-based organizations. We dont think now
is the time to be experimenting with a policy that
has the potential to reduce the incentive to

law will reduce donations

ot long before the economy col-
lapsed in 2008, Californias courts
raised many fees and nes to pay
for a far-reaching program of courthouse
construction. The plan was not for new judi-
cial palaces or unnecessary luxury, but for
replacing buildings that were designed with a
1950s population in mind and constructed
with equally outdated techniques that now
jeopardize the safety of jurors, litigants and
everyone else who uses them. The states
budget distress put most of the program on
hold as money from those higher nes and
fees, which were imposed on a public also
feeling the nancial hard times, was diverted
to pay for basic operations after court fund-
ing was slashed.
The diversion was necessary. All state
operations had to be deeply cut during the
crisis, including the courts. But now that
voter-approved temporary tax increases and a
gradually improving economy and housing
market have slowed the cuts, the courts must
be given at least a little room to breathe.
Gov. Jerry Browns proposed budget pro-
vides some good news: The governor backed
off plans to conscate the minimal reserve
funds that trial courts had saved to ensure
that they remained solvent even amid contin-
uing scal emergencies. Still, his budget does
take an additional $200 million from the
court system, which will force it to close
courthouses, cut services, increase more fees
and continue to delay courthouse construc-
tion. In Los Angeles County, that would
mean further retrenchment from a modern
court system that serves its people and a
return to an outdated system with impossibly
long freeway treks to, for example, obtain
domestic violence restraining orders or even
to appear before a judge in a small claims or
landlord-tenant dispute. It would mean that
instead of safe, user-oriented facilities locat-
ed near todays population centers, the public
already paying higher nes and fees for
updated buildings must continue to strug-
gle with postwar-era courthouses offering
reduced service hours and diminished assis-
Of course, every program that was cut over
the last ve years is getting in line to have its
funding restored. Or rather, theyre jockeying
for position at the front of the line. But
Proposition 30, the tax hikes that voters
approved in November, doesnt provide fund-
ing for restoring previous cuts. Californias
new supposed good budget times simply
mean that for most programs there wont be
additional cuts. But for courts, the slashing
Courts are not just another program. They
are a coequal branch of government, quite
obviously essential to the delivery of justice,
but essential as well to a developing econo-
my and a civil society that can resolve dis-
putes fairly and efciently. The Legislature
should keep that in mind as it makes adjust-
ments to Browns proposed budget.

our local neighborhoods we almost dont

Reusable bags
Shoppers using the reusable bags for gro-
cery items should know that recent studies
show that a large percentage of them harbor
potentially lethal strains of bacteria such as
E. coli. Washing them religiously after every
use can eliminate that problem. Inevitably,
not everyone, and perhaps not even a majori-
ty, will though. A recent outbreak of
norovirus among Boy Scouts was traced to
cookies stored in a reusable grocery bag. I
know some will say we can force compliance
in making sure reusable bags are always
washed by the consumer, the same way we
now force 100 percent compliance of hand
washing after using the rest room. OK, bad
example. I guess human nature being what it
is, youll never force 100 percent or anything
near compliance in the spread of pathogens
by dirty reusable bags in their bags (or yours
if it was placed on the same counter). Insist
on one-use bags for packaged raw food items
or force legislation if necessary to be allowed
to use them for those items.

Technology in our electoral process
In state Sen. Lelend Yees guest perspective
Technology in our electoral process in the
Jan. 10 edition of the Daily Journal, he lauds
the improvements that technology has
brought to the electoral process. I agree.
However, there is a problem that requires
attention. As a poll worker, I have noticed
that a signicant number of vote-by-mail vot-
ers are showing up at the polls. Being listed
as a vote-by-mail voter, they cannot vote
electronically and must cast a paper provi-
sional ballot.
Most of those voters tell us that they never
signed up and dont want to vote by mail.
They want the good feeling of having voted
and want to be sure their vote is counted
(which they are).
Do voters unwittingly check off to vote by
mail when they register at the DMV or when
they register electronically? Do political par-
ties unnecessarily urge this voting method?
I brought this to the attention of the San
Mateo County Registrar of Voters ofce and
received a prompt reply.
However, to speed the process along, if
you are registered to vote by mail but want to
vote at the polls next time, contact the San
Mateo County Registrar of Voters directly.
Thank you.

For what
its worth
he federal government wont be issu-

wasnt all the hoopla enough to make
one wonder just what fun could be had with
such a thing jingling
in the pocket?
Certainly, the debt
ceiling and staving
off the scal cliff and
all that other boring
but important stuff is
nice and sensible but
lets momentarily step
away from the actual
reason the U.S.
Treasury and Federal
Reserve even dared
suggest such a thing
as minting a new piece of money. Lets also
shelve any silly notion of displaying the prized
coin like some other everyday commemorative
quarter embossed with a state or national park
or presidents head.
Instead, lets think Hope Diamond and life-
time membership in the Richard Branson
space trip club and using nothing but spun
gold to sew custom-made clothing. Give every
person in China a couple of bucks, bribe
Vladimir Putin to change his mind on Russian
baby adoptions, hire an attorney to ght the
new privacy violations that the Facebook graph
search will undoubtedly bring and get a couple
suites at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on the
off chance the 49ers make it to the Super
But all thats chump change. Youve got a
trillion dollars, for goodness sake!
Depending on ones relationship status and
personal predilections, theres always setting
yourself up as a sugar daddy or momma. A
new site allows youngsters with holes in their
pockets to establish relationships with older
individuals with holes in their love lives.
Applicants actually post how much money
they expect monthly for the privilege of the
respondents company, however that is dened.
The average payout is $1,000 to $3,000 so
with a trillion dollars in play, consider a harem
or, at least very unexpected and unique
Christmas presents for family and friends.
Might beat cheesecake of the month.
Those looking for a less uncomfortable
spending plan and a liberal agenda can buy
smoothies in Vernal, Utah where the owner of
the I Love Drilling Juice and Smoothie Bar
makes no secret of charging self-professed
lefties an extra dollar. The money and any tips
received with it is donated to conservative
causes. With a trillion bucks burning a hole in
your pocket, have a smoothie three times a day
for the rest of your life. Heck, invite the entire
Democratic Party and most college campuses.
Tip heavily liberally, dare I say? and still
have plenty of change. Besides, isnt change
what all liberals want, anyway?
Or be extra liberal and throw a heck of a gun
buyback program.
But dont stop there. Snatch up a couple
starter homes in Hillsborough and feel free to
build an Olympic stadium in the backyard.
Give Candy Spellings former mansion as a
hostess gift. Buy Oahu just to outdo Larry
Ellison. Give everybody in the world a puppy
and every 1-year-old girl a diamond-encrusted
Barbie (why should Beyonce and Jay-Z have
the corner market on blinged-out baby gifts?).
Give every county worker a pension and a
salary even if they arent retired just
because you can. And maybe a Tesla Roadster
for good measure.
Or, help make a reality the idea of a Death
Star superweapon that was just rejected by the
White House. Youll be the coolest kid at
Comic-Con by building an Evil Empire
youll just need a bazillion more coins to make
it happen.
Unfortunately, though, the government
decided to scratch the notion of a trillion dollar
coin. So sad because looking at what we could
each do with it, is there anybody who wouldnt
say the idea was so money?

NEW YORK Americas best-known
banker is getting a big pay cut.
JPMorgan Chase said Wednesday that it will
dock the pay of CEO Jamie Dimon by more
than half, to $11.5 million from $23 million.
Its the latest fallout from an embarrassing
trading loss at the bank last year, one that
eventually ballooned to $6 billion. Its ripple
effects have already been numerous, forcing
Dimon to appear contritely before Congress
and putting the bank squarely in the cross
hairs of regulators and lawmakers.
The pay cut didnt come as a surprise on
Wall Street. What set it apart was that it
amounted to a reprimand from the bank
against a CEO who remains popular and well
regarded, despite the stain of a trading loss
that Dimon once dismissed as a tempest in a
And even as it cuts his pay, the board of
directors praised Dimon for responding
forcefully to the trading loss, presiding over
an overhaul of the banks risk management
and booting out responsible executives. A
report from a bank task force placed most of
the blame on other executives and traders who
have since left.

Fed survey: U.S. economy
picked up at end of year
WASHINGTON Holiday shopping, strong auto sales
and a recovering housing market helped boost the U.S. econ-
omy from the middle of November through early January,
according to a Federal Reserve survey released Wednesday.
The Fed said 12 of its regional banking districts reported
modest or moderate growth in the nal weeks of 2012. Of
those, only St. Louis said growth had slowed from the pre-
vious survey, which covered October through early
Consumers increased spending at the end of the year in
every district. Auto sales were steady or stronger in 10 dis-
tricts. Nearly all of the districts reported increases in home
construction and home sales.
Still, employers in some parts of the country delayed hir-
ing because of uncertainty over the scal cliff. Congress and
the White House reached a deal on Jan. 1 to prevent sharp
income tax increases from hitting most Americans. But they
put off decisions on government spending cuts.
Goldman, Morgan Stanley
pay $557M in mortgage case
WASHINGTON Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley
will pay a combined $557 million to settle federal com-
plaints that they wrongfully foreclosed on homeowners who
should have been allowed to stay in their homes.
The agreements announced Wednesday with the Federal
Reserve were similar to deals struck earlier this month with
10 other major banks and mortgage lenders. Combined, the
12 rms will pay more than $9 billion.
Goldman will pay $330 million. Morgan Stanley is paying
$227 million.
The settlements could compensate hundreds of thousands
of Americans whose homes were seized because of abuses
such as robo-signing, when banks automatically signed off
on foreclosures without properly reviewing documents. The
agreement will also help eliminate huge potential liabilities
for the banks.

As a former player and coach in the Peninsula
Athletic League, Don Scatena understands the
value of high school athletics.
As principal at Peninsula High School, Scatena
is trying to do something to get his student-athletes
involved in after-school sports.
To that end, he has proposed having academi-
cally eligible student-athletes at Peninsula playing
for their San Mateo Union High School District
home schools in the PAL. For instance, if a stu-
dent-athlete left San Mateo High for Peninsula, he
or she would only be eligible to return to San
Mateo for sports.
Everyone agrees that sports is a great motiva-
tor for students, Scatena said. Many students try
their hardest to get back to football or whatever
(sport they want to play). I think we send about 20
students back (to the comprehensive high schools)
a year. I would say probably eight of the 20 do it
because of athletics. Even though they realize
Peninsula is a better t for them, they go back (to
their previous schools) strictly for the athletics.
The most requests we get are for football,
boys soccer and boys basketball. Our hope is we
can at least offer it.
Scatena said his school used to have a loose
league with other continuation schools around the
Peninsula and South Bay, but it did not offer the
satisfaction of playing in a recognized organiza-
Scatena said the biggest change needed is the
schools classication. Right now, students at
Peninsula would have to physically transfer back
to their home school and then be subject to league
and Central Coast Section transfer rules. Scatena
proposes changing the denition of Peninsula,
allowing the students to continue their education at
Peninsula, but allowing them to join the athletic
teams at schools in the district. Scatena said the
rst part of his plan reclassifying the school
from a continuation school to an alternative school
is already in the works.
It is a big distinction. Continuation school
implies the students had some kind of discipline
problem at their previous school. He said that is
not the case for Peninsula anymore.
Were not a school for expulsions or discipline
issues, Scatena said. CCS assumes continuation
schools are discipline schools. Weve moved away
from most continuation schools. Thats not what
weve done for four years or longer.

soccer season is less than two
weeks old and its already shaping
up to be a wild ride for the titles in both the
Bay and Ocean divisions.
In the Bay, seven of the eight teams are
within four points of the top of the table.
Currently, Carlmont and Menlo-Atherton
are tied for the division lead with identical
2-1-1 records, which is good for seven
points (three points for a win, one point for
a tie). Right behind those two are three
more teams, all with six points: Sequoia,
Burlingame and
Woodside. San
Mateo is one point
behind with ve

less in division play,

Only Westmoor,
with only one point,
appears to be a
longshot at winning
the division title.
In the Ocean
Division, Aragon
appears to be the team to beat as the Dons
are 3-0-1 so far, which gives them 10
points. South City is right behind with
nine. El Camino, at 2-0-2, has eight points,
while Half Moon Bay stands in fourth with
seven points. Mills is hanging around with
ve points.
There is still a long way to go but, given
the competitive nature of games played
thus far, expect to see the standings being
juggled nearly every week. There is no
clear-cut favorite in the Bay and just about
any of the top seven teams could beat any-
one on any given day. Considering there
have been 14 ties played thus far in Bay
Division play, every point will be vital.
The Ocean Division, while not as deep,
could also see a lot of movement among
the top three or four teams.

SANTA CLARA Despite all those
gaudy statistics and impressive physical
skills, Colin Kaepernick faced plenty of ques-
tions coming out of Nevada about whether he
was the product of a gimmicky college
offense that would have no chance of working
in the pros.
On the big stage of the NFL playoffs,
Kaepernick is demonstrating just what he and
that pistol offense are
capable of against the
toughest competition.
With scintillating runs in
the option game and
downeld passes with his
powerful right arm,
Kaepernick has the San
Francisco 49ers back in
the NFC championship
game for a second straight
year and has given more
credibility to the offense designed by his col-
lege coach less than a decade ago.
At rst they said, thats just a college
offense, said former Nevada coach Chris
Ault, who invented the offense and used it in
college with Kaepernick. Lo and behold,
somebody came out and said you can do that
in the NFL every so often. The NFL has been
such a copycat league. The formation has
expanded the landscape of football collegiate-
ly and pro wise. The pros see advantages of
what you can do with these mobile quarter-
backs in the pistol.
Never had it been more effective than it was
in San Franciscos 45-31 win last week
against Green Bay. Kaepernick set a quarter-
back record with 181 yards rushing on 16 car-
ries, scoring on a 20-yard scramble and 56-
yard sprint off a zone read play. He also threw
for 263 yards and two touchdowns, exploiting
whatever opening the Packers gave him.
The one thing it does is it kind of makes

Despite seeing his team fall behind 11-0 to
start the game against visiting Hillsdale,
Carlmont coach Dave Low remained calm.
When a team plays defense like the Scots,
theyre always in the game. By halftime, the
score was tied at 24 and then the Scots held off
the Knights in the second half to record a 48-
42 win and remain undefeated in Peninsula
Athletic League South Division play.
Ive seen these kids play enough this year
that they surprise me as a team, Low said.
That was just a great comeback win.
Hillsdale seemingly could not miss in the
rst quarter, while Carlmont could get nothing
to fall. The roles reversed, however, for the
rest of the game. The Knights, who made six
eld goals and scored 15 points in the rst
quarter, managed only 10 eld goals and 27
points the rest of the game.
I thought our shot selection was good,
said Hillsdale coach Brett Stevenson. But we
were 2 for 15 from 3. We normally shoot 28 to
40 percent (from behind the 3-point line).
In addition, Angelo Bautista had a miserable
night from the eld for Hillsdale (2-1 PAL
South, 10-5 overall). After knocking down six
3s in a win over San Mateo last Friday night,
he managed only nine points against
Carlmont. When his outside shot wasnt
falling, Bautista put the ball on the oor and
got to the rim only to see the ball roll off
time and time again.
Carlmont had a good game plan on
Angelo, Steveson said, adding that Bautista
has added the dribble penetration to his game
when his perimeter shot is not falling.
He just didnt nish his shot.
Low said that was the game plan limit
Bautista and hope none of the other Knights
got hot. Carlmonts in-your-face defense had a
lot to do with that as Hillsdale rarely got clean
looks at the basket. Bautista and Brian Houle
both nished with nine points for the Knights
which tied for team-high honors.
Thats how were supposed to play (defen-
sively), Low said. If we play soft on defense,
were in trouble.

OAKLAND LeBron James became the
youngest player in NBA history to score 20,000
points and also surpassed 5,000 assists on a mile-
stone night Wednesday, leading the Miami Heat
to a 92-75 victory over the undermanned Golden
State Warriors.
On a road trip that has had more bad news than
good, James rewrote the headlines and the record
books. He nished with 25 points, 10 assists and
seven rebounds.
James eclipsed both marks before halftime,
helped Miami go ahead by 34 points in the third
quarter and allowed coach Erik Spoelstra to rest
his starters without debate for the fourth.
Dwyane Wade added 15 points, eight rebounds
and six assists and Mario Chalmers scored 15 for
the Heat, who had lost three of their last four
away from home.
David Lee had 12 points and 11 rebounds and
Jarrett Jack scored 16 in place of Stephen Curry,
who sprained his twice surgically repaired right
ankle during Golden States morning practice.
The team said X-rays were negative, and
Warriors coach Mark Jackson said he doesnt
expect Curry to be out long.
The Warriors, who upset the Heat 97-95 in
Miami on Dec. 12, lost consecutive games for
only the third time this season. With center
Andrew Bogut already out indenitely recover-
ing from left ankle surgery, Currys absence
turned out to be too much to overcome against
the defending NBA champions.
James and Wade just overwhelmed the
Warriors from the start.
Wade lobbed an alley-oop from halfcourt that
James nished with two hands early in the rst
quarter. James hit Wade slicing down the lane for
a dunk moments later for his 5,000th career
assist, and James made a 3-pointer after falling
hard on his right elbow a play earlier to give the
Heat a 23-14 lead.
James, who made 11 of 20 shots from the oor,
surpassed the scoring mark when he dribbled
from the wing and pulled up in the lane to make
an off-balance jumper with 2:45 remaining in the
second quarter to give him 20,001 career points.
He needed 18 points entering the game to be the
38th NBA player to reach the milestone.
Previously the youngest player to score 20,000
points was Lakers star Kobe Bryant, who got
there when he was 29 years, 122 days old. James
was 28 years, 17 days on Wednesday.
James already was the youngest player in
league history to win Rookie of the Year, record
a triple-double, score 1,000 points, score 10,000
points and win MVP honors at an All-Star game.
Only Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain (29 years, 134
days) and Michael Jordan (29 years, 326 days)
reached the latest milestone before turning 30.
James also is the 13th player with 20,000
points and 5,000 assists. The only active players
to reach both marks are Bryant and Bostons
Kevin Garnett.
With the long-awaited record out of the way,
James and Wade switched roles and opened the
second half almost the same way the duo began
the rst.
Picking apart Golden States stagnant defense,
Wade tossed an alley-oop just inside halfcourt to
James while two Warriors defenders watched the
three-time NBA MVP soar for the slam, part of a
scintillating 26-6 surge lled with highlights to
open the third quarter and put the Heat ahead 78-
In a 104-97 loss at Utah on Monday, Spoelstra
sat Wade and played Chris Bosh for just 40 sec-
onds in the fourth quarter in a decision that had
been critiqued and questioned for the past two
days by fans and national media. The Heat sliced
a 19-point decit to two without both before
falling short.
This time, the Big Three watched the nal 12
minutes smiling from the bench.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. The wrenching story
of Notre Dame football star Manti Teos girl-
friend dying of leukemia a loss he said
inspired him to play his best all the way to the
BCS championship was dismissed by the
school as a hoax perpetrated against the line-
Notre Dame said Wednesday night it believes
the Heisman Trophy nalist was duped into an
online relationship with a woman whose death
was then faked by the perpetrators of the hoax.
The school made the statement following a
lengthy story by, saying it could
nd no record that Lennay Kekua ever existed.
The website story suggests a friend of Teo may
have carried out the hoax and that the football
player may have been in on it.
This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about,
but over an extended period of time, I developed
an emotional relationship with a woman I met
online, Teo said in a statement. We maintained
what I thought to be an authentic relationship by
communicating frequently online and on the
phone, and I grew to care deeply about her.
However, he stopped short of saying he had
ever met her in person or correcting reports that
said he had, though he did on numerous occa-
sions talk about how special the relationship was
to him.
To realize that I was the victim of what was
apparently someones sick joke and constant lies
was, and is, painful and humiliating, he said.
In retrospect, I obviously should have been
much more cautious. If anything good comes of
this, I hope it is that others will be far more guard-
ed when they engage with people online than I
Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick
said at a news conference that Teo told coaches
on Dec. 26 he had received a call while at an
awards ceremony earlier in the month from
Kekuas phone number.
When he answered it, it was a person whose
voice sounded like the same person he had talked
to, who told him that she was, in fact, not dead.
Manti was very unnerved by that, as you might
imagine, Swarbrick said.
Swarbrick said the school hired investigators
and their report indicated those behind the hoax
were in contact with each other, discussing what
they were doing.
The investigators were able to discover online
chatter among the perpetrators that was certainly
the ultimate proof of this, the joy they were tak-
ing, Swarbrick said. The casualness among
themselves they were talking about what they
Swarbrick said for Teo the pain was real.
The grief was real. The affection was real, he
said. Thats the nature of this sad, cruel game.
Swarbrick said Notre Dame did not take the
matter to the police, saying that the school left it
up to Teo and his family to do so. He added that
Notre Dame did not plan to release the ndings
of its investigation.
We had no idea of motive, and that was real-
ly signicant to us. ... Was somebody trying to
create an NCAA violation at the core of this?
Was there somebody trying to impact the out-
come of football games by manipulating the
emotions of a key player? Was there an extortion
request coming? When you match the lack of sort
of detail we lacked until we got some help inves-
tigating it with the risk involved, it was clear to
me until we knew more we had to just to contin-

The proposal to allow Peninsula student-ath-
letes to play sports has already cleared one hurdle,
with the district principals having already signed
off on it. The next big step is getting the PAL
Board of Managers to agree to it. If Scatena gets
that approval, it stands to reason all the other
administrations from the Board of Trustees to
CCS to the California Interscholastic Federation,
would also agree.
The biggest hurdle will probably be getting the
PAL Board of Managers to agree to the allowance.
The PAL is comprised of schools in ve different
high school districts, encompassing 18 to 20
schools. The challenge is to convince those out-
side the SMUHSD that the proposal will not lead
to super teams.
When it was rst brought to the district, we
kind of looked at it, said Steve Sell, football coach
and athletic director at Aragon who is also a mem-
ber of the PAL Board of Managers as well as the
CCS Competition Committee. I think there was
a consensus (to allow it). If one of our own (dis-
trict) schools proposed this, there would be some
real skepticism. But this is coming from Don. No
one is trying to pull a fast one.
Scatena can understand some of the concerns,
but he said any prospective student-athlete from
Peninsula would have to meet the eligibility
requirements as any other who wanted to play
sports at schools in the district. That means they
would still need a 2.0 grade point average as well
as take the required number of classes which, in
this case, is six classes per day.
If theyre not in that criteria, theyre not going
to play sports anyway, Scatena said.
Sell wonders if Peninsula student-athletes, who
are already struggling in the classroom, will have
the propensity to handle practice and games on top
of school work.
Heres the reality of it. It might be controver-
sial. The same characteristics and work habits that
have had these kids not reach their academic
potential are the same work habits that will pre-
vent them from reaching their athletic potential,
Sell said. To most people, whats so hard about a
2.0 (GPA)? But our school district, its rigorous
and its hard. And it is truly too hard for some kids.
You cant stay eligible without putting in some
hard work.
Scatena, however, believes the work Peninsula
students are putting in the classroom gives them
the discipline to add sports to their plate of activi-
ties. Given the fact the athletes not only have to
stay eligible but will also have to commute from
the San Bruno campus to their home school, the
athletes will have to really want to do it.
I think, realistically, the school board will have
questions. Should a kid who has failed courses,
should he put something else his plate? Should a
kid who had a hard time concentrating on one
thing, add another? Scatena said. Part of our
success is building up their academic identity.
Their academic identity has always been negative.
The chance to play] is what is keeping these
kids in school. These kids have been told so many
times they cant do something.
Both Scatena and Sell believe the proposal will
be passed. Sells biggest concern is that one stu-
dent-athlete will come in and change the land-
scape of the PAL with his or her play.
If a stud athlete comes in and makes a big
impact, people will be jumping up and down, Sell
said. Its kind of a sharks and minnows thing.
This is a program set up to help the minnows and
hope the shark doesnt sneak in there.
Ultimately, however, Sell believes the proposal
will pass because it is trying to enrich the high
school experience for the Peninsula High School
This is a proposal by a guy who is trying to do
the best thing for his students, Sell said.
[Scatenas] motives are pure. Thats why no one
is really skeptical about anything sinister going

With the Carlmont defense slowly suffocat-
ing the Knights, it was only a matter of time
before the shots started falling for Carlmont
(3-0, 14-1). It was the play of center Joe
Pitocchi and forward Hector Prado who kept
the Scots in the game. They combined to score
their teams rst 12 points. They also com-
bined to pull down 22 rebounds and were the
difference in the game.
No doubt, said Low.
Pitocchi finished with a game-high 16
points, with 11 coming in the rst half, and 10
rebounds. His baseline jumper from the cor-
ner with 2:28 play gave Carlmont a 40-36 lead
and Hillsdale could never get over the hump.
[Pitocchi] was the difference in the game,
Low said. He is a face-up shooter. Hes done
that a lot in practice.
Michael Costello added 14 points for the
Scots, with nine coming in the second half.
After scoring just six points in the rst quar-
ter, Carlmont nally got its offense in gear in
the second quarter, outscoring Hillsdale 18-9
to tie the score at 24 at halftime.
The lead went back and forth in the third
quarter, but when Costello knocked down a 3
with 2:13 left in the period to give the Scots a
34-32 lead, they would not trail again. Three
times Hillsdale cut the lead to two the rest of
the way, but each time Carlmont got the stop
or made the basket to keep the Knights from
tying the game or to extend the Scots lead.

be involved. Instead, because of construction
on the Mills gym, the Vikings will be hosting
Burlingame in a quad.
After the preliminary frosh-soph games, the
varsity girls will take the court in one of the
biggest matchups of the day. A lot of the pres-
sure will be on Mills, which has already lost a
game. If the Vikings want to be in the mix for
the division title, Friday is almost a must-win
against a Burlingame squad that has averaged
68 points in its two PAL wins.
This game, however, represents the Panthers
biggest test of the young PAL season.
The nightcap features a Mills boys squad
that is coming off a huge win over Aragon last
Friday, versus a Burlingame team that appears
to be hitting its stride following a rugged pre-
season schedule. Both come into the game with
2-0 PAL records and, while a win by either
team will not decided a champion, it could go a
long way in determining who is left standing at
the end.

do, Green Bay defensive back Charles Woodson
said. You want to shoot in there but he may hold
the ball and take it outside. If you go outside he
might give it to the running back and take it up the
middle. Its one of those things that makes you play
at-footed a little bit.
Kaepernick is far from alone in running a style
of offense that until only recently was dismissed by
many in the NFL as unsuitable for the pro game.
Cam Newton has successfully used the zone read
in Carolina to post prolic numbers the past two
seasons and rookies Robert Grifn III in
Washington and Russell Wilson in Seattle used
elements of the pistol and the read option game to
get their teams to the playoffs.
Their success has helped remove the stigma that
running quarterbacks cant succeed in the NFL.
I think quarterbacks that have a talent for run-
ning the ball can be very effective, 49ers coach
Jim Harbaugh said. Thats been long known in
football, the National Football League as well. A
quarterback that can get out of the pocket, run, pick
up rst downs, thats a threat that the defense has to
account for. There are some quarterback-driven
runs that have been added because our quarter-
backs are very good at those, and Colin especially.
Hall of Famer Steve Young calls the offense a
bridge to help athletic quarterbacks with limited
pocket experience transition from college to the
pros, but said it is still essential to be able to beat
defenses from the pocket.
Thats where quarterbacks like Kaepernick,
Grifn and Wilson have the advantage over Tim
Tebow, who used the zone read to great success
last season in Denver but is struggling to get play-
ing time because of his erratic throwing.
Kaepernick prides himself on his ability to do it
all, dismissing the question of whether hes a run-
ning or throwing quarterback.
I dont want to be categorized, Kaepernick
Ault implemented the offense at Nevada in
2005, hoping to combine elements of the spread
passing game from the shotgun with the power
running game. The offense got its name the pis-
tol because the quarterback lines up about 4
yards behind center as opposed to about 6 in the
With the running back behind the quarterback
instead of by his side in the shotgun, traditional
running plays are easier to execute because the
back is moving toward the line of scrimmage when
he gets the ball rather than horizontally.
The offense began to evolve when Kaepernick
took over in 2007. Late that season, Ault began
mixing in some of the zone read plays where the
quarterback puts the ball in the belly of the running
back and then reads the defense to decide whether
to go through with the handoff or keep the ball and
run outside if the defensive end reacts to the run-
ning back.
Exposing the quarterbacks to hits running the
ball is a big reason why NFL teams are hesitant to
use the system so much, with Grifns latest injury
a prime example.
I know you cant run the quarterback in the
NFL as much as we do in college, Ault said. I
agree with that. But Ive seen quarterbacks take as
many vicious hits dropping back 40 times a game
as running the pistol.
Soon, coaches from high school, college,
Canada and the NFL made trips to Reno to learn
more about the offense. San Francisco offensive
coordinator Greg Roman was one of those in 2009
while he was still at Stanford. Roman used a few
of the plays with Andrew Luck at Stanford but real-
ly started utilizing them once Kaepernick took over
from Alex Smith halfway through this season.

was handed a new Eagles visor and
received a warm greeting from fans
gathered at the airport.
Welcome to Philadelphia, Coach.
The Eagles hired Kelly on
Wednesday, just 10 days after he
decided to stay at Oregon. The 49-
year-old Kelly, known as an offensive
innovator, becomes the 21st coach in
team history and replaces Andy Reid,

Kelly told a group of reporters upon
landing in Philly. I was sold on the
Eagles the rst time I met them, it was
my ties to Oregon that made it hard.
But the Eagles are the Eagles. This is
the NFL.
My dream is to just win, and with
the Eagles, this was the best opportu-
nity for me to win. I never thought a
long time ago that I was going to be
able to coach in the NFL but Im
excited about the opportunity.
General manager Howie Roseman
gave Kelly the white Eagles visor, the
trademark hat he wore at Oregon.
Kelly then got a glimpse of what this
team means to this city.
Not only were Roseman and presi-
dent Don Smolenski waiting for him
on the runway they arrived with a
police escort there were fans,
decked out in green, waiting outside
on a cold, dreary night.
I know its a rabid fan base, Kelly
said. I hope they dont boo me. Its
an exciting time and Im ready to get
to work.

at Oregon, interviewed with the
Eagles, Cleveland Browns and
Buffalo Bills in a two-day span after
leading the fast-ying Ducks to a vic-

CAIRO Egypts Islamist president
sought Wednesday to defuse Washingtons
anger over his past remarks urging hatred of
Jews and calling Zionists pigs and blood-
suckers, telling visiting U.S. senators that his
comments were a denunciation of Israeli poli-
Both sides appear to want to get beyond the
ap: Mohammed Morsi needs Americas help
in repairing a rapidly sliding economy, and
Washington cant afford to shun a gure who
has emerged as a model of an Islamist leader
who maintains his countrys ties with Israel.
U.S. Sen. John McCain said a congressional
delegation he led that met with Morsi
expressed to him their strong disapproval
about his 2010 comments. The delegation and
Morsi had a constructive discussion about
the remarks, he told reporters.
Still, despite calls by some in Washington to
rein in aid to Egypts Islamist-led government,
McCain said the delegation will press in
Congress for approval of some $480 million in
new assistance to Cairo.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, also in the delega-
tion, warned that the Egyptian economy is
going to collapse if something is not done
quickly. He urged Morsi to nalize a repeat-
edly delayed deal with the International
Monetary Fund for a $4.8 billion loan.
The ap was a new twist in Morsis attempts
to reconcile his background as a veteran of the
Muslim Brotherhood a vehemently anti-
Israeli and anti-U.S. group and the require-
ments of his role as head of state, which
include keeping the strategic relationship with
Morsis remarks came from a mix of speech-
es he made in 2010 when he was a leading
Brotherhood gure. The remarks were revived
when an Egyptian TV show aired them to high-
light and mock Morsis current policies. On
Tuesday, the White House denounced the com-
ments as deeply offensive.
In the video, Morsi refers to Zionists as
bloodsuckers who attack Palestinians as
well as the descendants of apes and pigs. He
says Egyptians should nurse their children on
hatred for them: for Zionists, for Jews. They
must be breast-fed hatred. He also calls
President Barack Obama a liar.
Morsi, who came to ofce in June, told the
visiting U.S. delegation on Wednesday that the
remarks were taken out of context, aimed at
criticizing Israeli policies, and not Jews,
according to presidential spokesman Yasser
Morsi told them distinction must be made
between criticism of what he called the
racist policies of the Israelis against the
Palestinians and insults against the Jewish
Morsi also told them the remarks were part
of a speech against Israeli aggression in Gaza
and assured them of his respect for monothe-
istic religions, freedom of belief and the prac-
tice of religions, Ali said.
Despite the explanation, Morsi went beyond
attacking Zionists to directly refer to Jews
and used traditional anti-Semitic slurs like
But the explanation was a rare instance
when an Islamist was forced to address criti-
cism of what is routine rhetoric for the
Brotherhood. They and other Islamists often
engage in tirades against Israel, sometimes
trying to stick to references to Zionism, the
founding ideology of Israel, but often slipping
into attacks on Jews.

WASHINGTON President Barack
Obama is likely to name Denis McDonough,
one of his closest national security advisers, as
his next chief of staff, according to people
familiar with the White House thinking.
However, White House ofcials say a nal
decision has not been made.
In tapping McDonough, Obama would be
relying on an inner circle ally for the key West
Wing post. McDonough, 43, currently serves
as the presidents deputy
national security adviser
and is highly regarded by
Obama and White House
McDonough would
replace current White
House chief of staff Jack
Lew, the presidents nomi-
nee for treasury secretary.
The people familiar with
the White House thinking
spoke on condition of anonymity because there
has been no announcement an appointment.
Before his tenure in the White House,
McDonough served as Obamas main adviser
on foreign policy issues during the 2008 presi-
dential campaign. Earlier, he worked as a for-
eign policy specialist in Congress, including as
a senior foreign policy adviser to former
Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, D-S.D.
McDonough would be Obamas fth chief of
staff. Rahm Emanuel, William Daly and Pete
Rouse, as interim chief of staff, preceded Lew
in the job.
If Obama chooses McDonough it will likely
be less because of his national security cre-
dentials and more because of McDonoughs
highly regarded status within the White

ting the job done for the boss, hammering out
the best policy possible given the political real-

Contest conditions are extreme, with waves
in past years as high as 50 feet, strong cur-

and the surfers put to good use their year-
round training regimens.

PORTLAND, Ore. In 21st century
America, a 19th century invention the
bicycle is guring more and more in the
calculations of apartment hunters and others
looking for suitable digs.
Bike commuting is on the rise in many
cities, studies show, and as the number has
grown, so has the need for bike-friendly hous-
Many apartment complexes are offering
secure storage spaces for bikes. Some devel-
opers are even putting bike repair shops in
apartment buildings.
I decided to live without a car, to take the
leap, said 31-year-old Rose Barcklow, who
lives in a Denver apartment that gives her easy
access to the bike lanes she takes on her 7-
mile commute to work.
Her apartment complex, Solera, is ueber-
bike-friendly. Barcklow doesnt have to lug
her two bikes up to her apartment because
theres a secure storage area for two-wheelers,
and she makes use of the velo room a
tool-equipped workshop where she can pump
up her tires, clean her chain and x a at.
Theres brushes, wrenches, the goo that
gets grease off your hands, and aprons, she
Chris Archer, assistant project manager for
Zocalo Community Development in Denver,
said the developers next project, a 231-unit
apartment complex, will have a bike repair
room that includes multiple bike repair
stands, a wide range of tools and lots of bike
storage space.
Bike-friendly amenities are a big draw for
potential residents, Archer said.
Most folks who move in are very green-
minded, he said.
What is bike-friendly housing?
If youre a cyclist who owns a house, you
can do pretty much whatever it takes: Put your
bike in the cellar or in a locked garage to keep
it secure. Build shelves or a cabinet to store
helmets, cycling shoes, spare tubes, tires,
tools and other gear.
If you dont own your own house, not to
worry. An increasing number of apartment
buildings are thinking about how they can
meet your needs.
In Portland, the collective voice of cyclists
is louder that in many other American cities.
In the last several years, Oregons largest city
has built a network of bike lanes, bike paths
and streets designated with sharrows
arrow-like symbols painted to remind
motorists they share the road with cyclists.
Each morning, thousands of Portland cyclists
commute to work. All of this has helped earn
the city a reputation as one of the most
cyclist-friendly in the nation and it some-
times has drawn curses and rude gestures
from motorists who think there are too many
bikes on the road.
North Portland, across the Willamette River
from downtown, is emblematic of Portlands
green and bike-catering nature. On North
Williams Avenue, within a few blocks of each
other, are a guest house, a bar and an apart-
ment complex that all cater to cyclists, plus
the United Bicycle Institute, which offers
classes on bike repair. All are located on a
major bike commuter route.
Jean Pierre Veillet is developer of the build-
ing containing the apartment complex, called
Three thousand people ride their bike by
here each day, said Veillet, standing in front
of EcoFlats, which has 18 apartments.
In the vestibule is a line of 30 wall-mount-
ed bike racks with a bike hanging from near-
ly every one. EcoFlats appeals to the green-
America pedaling toward more bike-friendly digs
Bike commuting is on the rise in many cities, studies show, and as the number has grown, so
has the need for bike-friendly housing.

Gardens can be great training grounds for
fitness buffs.
Add trails for jogging. Build benches for
workouts. Use trees and fence posts for
stretching. Lose even more calories by squat-
ting or lifting while weeding, planting, haul-
ing and digging.
You can personalize your garden to fit
your energy level. Equipment such as exer-
cise beams and conditioning ladders are
inexpensive and simple to make, while
portable gear like weighted rollers, jump
ropes, dumbbells and Swiss balls can be
eased into the routines.
If you have childrens play equipment, it
is easy to add a pull-up bar or climbing
frame for adults to a tree house, said Bunny
Guinness, a landscape architect who runs a
garden design business near Peterborough in
central England.
Gardening in and of itself can be a formi-
dable calorie burner, said Guinness, who
with physiotherapist Jacqueline Knox wrote
Garden Your Way to Health and Fitness
(Timber Press. 2008).
Regular physical activity reduces the risk
of many illnesses, and gardening can provide
it, said Margaret Hagen, an educator with
University of New Hampshire Cooperative
Raking is like using a rowing machine,
Hagen said. Turning a compost pile is sim-
ilar to lifting weights. Carry a gallon sprin-
kling can of water in each hand and youve
got 8-pound dumbbells. Pushing a lawn-
mower is like walking on a treadmill, only
much more interesting.
Even more calories are burned when calis-
thenics are included in the mix. Add push-
ups, chin-ups, bridging, power lunges and
dips to the workouts.
Warm up before you begin to avoid cramp-
ing and joint pain. Pace yourself. Hydrate,
especially if youre gardening out in the sun.
Avoid bending by using telescoping pruners,
edgers and weeders. Opt for lightweight and
easy-to-grip hand tools.
Work ergonomically. Stress good posture
and balance.
As someone who has had a back issue, I
do try to follow my physical therapists
advice and be careful to kneel instead of
stooping while gardening, and to lift with
bent knees and a straight back, Hagen said.
One of the things I like most about garden-
ing is that because you stretch and move in
so many directions, it works all your muscle
groups, releasing tension everywhere in your
Dont forget to include mental health in
your landscape design. Add tranquil herb
gardens, soothing fountains and small sitting
areas for meditation, relaxing and cooling
Any gardener can tell you that there is
nothing like spending time outdoors garden-
ing to refresh the soul, Hagen said.
Psychologically, Im sure it provides the
same benefits to gardeners that recent
research says recess provides to schoolchild-
Good nutrition also is an important part of
any fitness package, and few things taste bet-
ter than food served fresh from the garden.
If you can boost your health and avoid
stresses and strains in the process, it
becomes all the more satisfying, Guinness
Gardeners can reap fitness along with plants

CHICAGO Just your luck you have to
sell your home in winter, the slowest and
dreariest sales season of all.
But cheer up. You can use staging, the
reduced competition and some seasonal
opportunities to your advantage.
You wouldnt necessarily choose to sell
your home in winter, says Katie Severance, a
broker for ReMax in Upper Montclair, N.J.
But there are certain extra steps you can take
to really help your chances.
Many homeowners pull their houses off the
market by years end if they havent sold.
The weather, too, helps put the chill in sales
in most locations between now and spring.
January and February see the fewest home
sale closings, according to the National
Association of Realtors, with the market not
fully gearing up until April and May. Another
big factor: Homebuyers with children gener-
ally time their purchases so moving doesnt
interfere with the school year.
Sometimes a job transfer, lease or personal
circumstances require plunging into making a
sale in the dead of winter. Although that
means fewer buyers in most areas, as a seller
youll have a chance to stand out in a thinned-
out eld of competitors.
Here are some tips to lessen the chances
your home will languish on the market:
Taking care of needed maintenance and
repairs is obligatory in any season. A thor-
ough cleaning and getting rid of clutter are
equally essential. And tidying up the yard and
touching up the exterior appearance to
improve the curb appeal also can make the
difference between deal or no deal.
In a slow market, nothing counts more than
pricing aggressively. Check recent sale prices
in your neighborhood on sites such as and and price your
home competitively. If its priced properly, it
will sell any day of the year, says Severance.
Home staging techniques used to make
your house look bigger, brighter, warmer and
more appealing takes on a new focus in
winter. Rearranging the furniture and apply-
ing a fresh coat of paint to any room in need
are just as important. But to convey a cozy
impression in winter, it may behoove you to
turn up the thermostat and have a re in the
replace for open houses. It will give you an
edge over the many vacant homes on the mar-
Staging may in fact be even more important
in winter, according to Loren Keim, a real
estate broker and professor of real estate at
Lehigh University. If you have a vacant
house in winter with the heat turned down to
50, chances are someone will make a very low
offer, he says. And if you can leave at least
a few pieces of furniture behind, it has more
of an impact.
Displaying photos of how your property
looks in summer is a good idea. Some staging
experts also recommend decorating with
warm colors such as deep orange or crimson.
It might seem obvious to keep sidewalks
and driveways free and clear of ice and snow.
But many homeowners who have already
vacated their houses either arent diligent
about that winter duty or dont do a thorough
Its important for reasons of safety, aesthet-
ics and, once again, competition. In particular,
a foreclosed house probably wont have walks
and parking spaces shoveled out, and people
dont like to deal with that, says Holden
Lewis, real estate expert for
Lewis recalls pulling up in front of a house
he had an appointment to see one February
years ago in Toledo, Ohio. The sidewalk was-
nt shoveled, and he took a look at the house
from his car and decided not to go in. If you
want to sell the house, everything needs to be
shoveled and clear, he says.
Your home may appear darker due to less
daylight. Fight the gloom. Turn on all the
lights possible for visitors this is no time to
worry about the electric bill. Open blinds,
drapes and shutters to let natural light pour in.
Make sure to clean any grime off the windows
Encourage showings during high-daylight
hours. Showing after work in
the dark isnt a great idea.
Make sure you have enough
outside illumination for drive-
by visitors in the evening,
however. And keep the place
well-lit even when youre not
The holidays give you an
extra chance to make your
home stand out. Keep decora-
tions conservative and dont
overdo it on outdoor lighting.
You dont want to put 25,000
lights on the roof like Clark
Griswold in National
Lampoons Christmas
Vacation. As sure as he
blacked out the neighborhood, you would
scare off buyers. But a big red bow on the For
Sale sign and some holiday greenery, twin-
kling lights and elegant decorations inside can
help give buyers a dose of seasonal cheer.
When Christmas and Hanukkah are over,
you can keep the spirit alive. A colorful win-
ter wreath on the front door and colorful
poinsettias and holly bushes in the yard will
help retain a festive look for January and
February, when more house-shoppers start to
turn up.
Five tips for selling your home in winter

the City Council at the end of the month
but, despite that possible outcome, the
eviction by owner Paula Uccelli still
stands, said spokesman Adam Alberti.
The date stands regardless. In
essence, Paula is going out of business
as a harbor operator, he said.
On Tuesday, the actual eviction date,
Alberti announced that Petes Harbor
staff were available to ease any transi-
tion or answer questions. A few Occupy
Redwood City members had arrived to
bolster the tenants who had dug their
heels in the sand but the situation was
otherwise civil, he said.
An inquiry to the Occupy group for
conrmation went unanswered.
As of late Tuesday, Alberti said
Uccelli was still hopeful to have the ten-
ants leave because going to court would
end up being more time consuming and
their presence was stalling the restora-
tion and maintenance she must do to the
piers before transferring the lease to
developer Pauls Corp. which plans a
411-unit waterfront housing develop-
On Wednesday, Madden said 20 boats
with approximately 25 people remained,
including the seven with engine prob-
lems. The others, she said, include a dis-
abled and retired elderly man, a veteran
who needs access to the Veterans
Administration medical facility and a
mother whose kids are enrolled in local
Six to 10 slips fall outside the area of
Uccellis lease so some tenants there are
staying, too, Madden said.
Last week, a judge denied a temporary
restraining order request but the group is
still hopeful about a lawsuit claiming
that Uccelli didnt have the right to evict
them because she doesnt have permis-
sion from the state commission from
which she leases the land. The suit
claims the land is required to be operat-
ed as a commercial marina and harbor
which Uccellis plans do not include so
she is therefore in breach.
Uccellis representatives counter the
transfer should be allowed because she
paid $409,253.24 for 18 years of back
rent and interest to the State Lands
Commission which paves the way for
the lease transfer.
The battle between Uccelli and the
tenants began last fall when she alerted
them of development plans and the Jan.
15 eviction date for those living at the
60-year-old marina founded by her late
husband, Pete Uccelli.

enforced, Combs said.
But putting the impetus on Congress
to curb gun violence is a pure political
move, Combs told the Daily Journal, and
the president backed away from the
major issues.
With the gun lobbys influence in
Washington, D.C., especially that of the
National Rifle Association, getting
Republicans to sign off on Obamas pro-
posals could be difcult but Speier has
pledged to do everything in her power to
achieve the presidents proposals.
Im not going to be sucked into a
defeatist philosophy. We have an obliga-
tion to act, Speier told the Daily Journal
She will also introduce legislation in
the coming weeks to ban the import of
assault weapons.
Speier serves as vice chair of the con-
gressional Gun Violence Prevention
Task Force and met with Vice President
Joe Biden for two hours Monday with 11
other House Democrats as the task force
discussed comprehensive measures to
prevent mass killings such as the one at
Sandy Hook Elementary School or the
movie theater in Aurora, Colo. last year.
Those measures were presented to
Obama Tuesday prior to his announce-
ment yesterday to pledge $500 million
toward curbing gun violence.
Speier is an outspoken advocate for a
federal ban on assault weapons, full and
complete background checks on all gun
sales, including sales at gun shows, and
strict limits on high capacity ammuni-
tion sales.
Speier first introduced assault
weapons ban legislation in California 20
years ago.
Being shot ve times herself at close
range at the Jonestown massacre in
1978, Speier has been passionate to pro-
tect people against gun violence since.
But some of Obamas proposals might
not meet the constitutional smell test,
Combs said. Other proposals are over-
reaching, he added.
Some of the presidents 23 executive
orders yesterday included requiring fed-
eral agencies to make more data avail-
able for background checks; appointing
a director of the Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and
directing the Centers for Disease
Control to research gun violence.
The nation also needs to improve the
recognition and treatment of individuals
with mental illness, Speier said.
