Ravens, 49ers
stage dramatic
Super Bowl
By Brett Martel
NEW ORLEANS The Harbaugh fam-
ily sure knows how to throw a Super party.
In the end, it was older brother John
Harbaugh and his Baltimore Ravens who
came out on top, hanging on for a 34-31 win
over Jim Harbaugh and his San Francisco
49ers in a Super Bowl that had everything.
After the game, John Harbaugh said it
was hard to compete against his brother.
The brothers met at mideld as the con-
fetti rained down. I told him I loved him,
John said. He said, Congratulations.
Jim Harbaugh later declined a postgame
interview with CBS.
With mom Jackie and dad Jack watching
from somewhere in the Superdome, the
Harbaugh brothers put on a championship
game to remember. First it was the Ravens
who raced to a 28-6 lead after Jacoby Jones
returned the second-half kickoff a Super
Bowl-record 108 yards for a score.
Then came a power outage, which

Afecks Argo wins
Directors Guild top honor
LOS ANGELES Ben Afeck has
won the top lm honor from the Directors
Guild of America for his CIA thriller
Argo, further sealing its status as best-
picture front-runner at the Academy
Saturdays prize also normally would
make Afeck a near shoo-in to win best-
director at the Feb. 24 Oscars, since the
Directors Guild recipient nearly always
goes on to claim the same prize at
Hollywoods biggest night.
But Afeck surprisingly missed out on
an Oscar directing nomination, along
with several other key favorites, including
fellow Directors Guild contenders
Kathryn Bigelow for Zero Dark Thirty
and Tom Hooper for Les Miserables.
Afflecks Oscar snub has not hurt
Argo and may even have earned it some
favor among awards voters as an under-
dog favorite. Argo has dominated other
awards since the Oscar nominations.
I dont think that this makes me a real
director, but I think it means Im on my
way, said Afeck, who won for just his
third lm behind the camera.
The Directors Guild honors continued
Hollywoods strange awards season,
which could culminate with a big Oscar
win for Afecks Argo. The guilds
prize for best director typically is a nal
blessing for the lm that goes on to win
best-picture and director at the Oscars.
Afeck can
go only one-
for-two at the
O s c a r s ,
though. While
Argo is up
for best pic-
ture, the
d i r e c t o r s
branch of the
Academy of
M o t i o n
Picture Arts
and Sciences
over l ooked
him for a directing slot.
Backstage at the Directors Guild hon-
ors, Afeck said he had nothing but
respect for the academy and that youre
not entitled to anything.
Im thrilled and honored that the acad-
emy nominated me as a producer of the
movie, Afeck said. I know our movie,
were a little bit underdog and a little bit
the little engine that could, and you take
me out of it maybe helps ... its just about
that picture. I feel like its OK, Im real-
ly lucky, Im in a good place.
With 12 Oscar nominations, Steven
Spielbergs Civil War saga Lincoln ini-
tially looked like the Oscar favorite over
such other potential favorites as Argo,
Les Miserables and Zero Dark
Thirty, since lms generally have little
chance of winning best picture if they are
not nominated for best director. Only
three lms have done it in 84 years, most
recently 1989s best-picture champ
Driving Miss Daisy, which failed to
earn a directing nomination for Bruce
But Afecks Argo, in which he also
stars as a CIA operative who hatches a
bold plan to rescue six Americans during
the hostage crisis in Iran, has swept up all
the major awards since the Oscar nomi-
nations. Argo won best drama and
director at the Golden Globes and top
film honors from the Screen Actors
Guild and the Producers Guild of
Many of the same lm professionals
who vote in guild awards also cast ballots
for the Oscars, so all the wins for Argo
are a strong sign that the lm has the
inside track for best picture.
Milos Forman, a two-time Directors
Guild and Oscar winner for One Flew
Over the Cuckoos Nest and
Amadeus, received the groups life-
time-achievement award. Guild
President Taylor Hackford let the crowd
in a toast to Forman, who was ill and
unable to attend.
Malik Bendjelloul won the guilds
documentary award for Searching for
Sugar Man, his study of the fate of crit-
ically acclaimed but obscure 1970s
singer-songwriter Rodriquez. The lm
also is nominated for best documentary at
the Oscars.
Jay Roach won the guild trophy for TV
movies and miniseries for Game
Change, his drama starring Julianne
Moore as Sarah Palin in her 2008 vice-
presidential run.

The re had started at 5:15 p.m. June 25,
1920, as he and his associates were talking to
news people at the citys newspaper, the News
Leader. Borden was enthusiastic about his
plans for the newly reopened hotel. The auto-
mobile had changed the tranquil scene and
altered the pace of life on the Peninsula.
Parking for the new fad of touring had
already become a problem for the older estab-
lished hotels on the Peninsula, and Bordens
plan was to build parking spaces for 100 auto-
The four-letter word FIRE changed all of
his plans. Now he was in a ght to save the
former mansion of Alvinza Hayward. It was a
huge, wooden, multi-story structure that had
become a landmark on the Peninsula since its
construction in 1886 by a multi-millionaire
gold-mining citizen, Alvinza Hayward. (The
grounds of the house sit in what is known as
the Glazenwood residential area of San Mateo
today). The stick-style mansion with its
gabled roof tower was impressive and out of
character for the stern, dour, sometimes vul-
gar, 60ish landowner who had lived in the
mansion with his wife and only surviving
daughter Emma. On the estate, he had huge
stable and race track built to run his magni-
cent horses. He fenced in deer and elk for his
enjoyment and he had a lake created with
plenty of ducks and swans. Of course he had
servants for tending to the cooking, house-
keeping and keeping the acres of gardens,
hedges and grounds in immaculate shape, but
he was still a man from a laboring back-
ground. His wife Charity never did quite
adjust to being rich and practiced thrift almost
to the extreme.
After Hayward died in 1904, the mansion
and 15 acres of its beautiful ground were sold
to a local group for $125,000. More than
$300,000 were poured into remodeling and
renovation so that 300 people could be
accommodated in its 122 rooms. The hotel
opened Feb. 22, 1908 amid much excitement,
pomp and ceremony. Great times were prom-
ised by the hotel management. There would
be beautiful drives to the Crystal Springs Dam
where there is no better view in the world. The
bowling alley, card rooms, billiard tables and
tasteful surroundings were geared to attract-
ing rich patrons from San Francisco.
However, it failed to pay for itself and it was
closed, only to be reopened in 1917 under
new management. This adventure failed also

By Heather Murtagh
Former San Mateo city manager
Arne Croce never called it a retire-
ment when he
left the city in
Instead, 61-
year-old Croce
wanted to leave
while he was
young enough to
embark on a sec-
ond career. Hes
spent the most
recent years
exploring those options by traveling,
offering his services to the war-torn
countries of Kosovo and Iraq, and
working with the city of Bell, which
was plagued by scal mismanage-
ment and corruption. Today, he starts
a new role leading Peninsula Family
Service, a private nonprot in San
Mateo that offers services to those in
San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.
It gives us a tremendous sense of
condence to know that Arne, his
work, his management style and his
ability to empower and transform an
organization are proven and well
known by so many leaders in our
community. This is a very happy time
for Peninsula Family Service, Judy
Swanson, chairman of the board of
directors of Peninsula Family
Service, said in a prepared statement.
Croce was also happy with the
opportunity. Just a few months prior,
Croce said he had decided leading a
private nonprot social services
agency had been the path on which
hed decided.
Im thrilled with the opportunity
to work with the Peninsula Family
Service board, staff, funders and part-
ners to further the organizations mis-
sion to empower children, families
and other adults to achieve and main-
tain self-sufciency, building a strong
and caring community. The executive
director position is a good match for
my experience and skills, and my
interests and values, he said.
In his new role, Croce will set and
guide the strategic direction of the
organization as well as manage day-
to-day operations and oversee a staff
of nearly 200.
Croce was hired in San Mateo in
1990 after serving as the Los Altos
city manager for six years.
Under Croces leadership, San
Mateo nanced and built a new pub-
lic library, renovated and built re
stations, completed plans to build a
new police station, rebuilt the munic-
ipal golf course and dealt with the
seven-year process to redevelop the
Bay Meadows race track into hous-
ing, commercial and retail uses.
In 2011, Croce was named interim
city manager for the city of Bell,
which was recovering from a scandal
that its former city manager had mis-
appropriated funds.

Election Day is still more than
half a year away but that isnt stop-
ping at least three potential candi-
dates in San Carlos from throwing
their hats in the ring for the three
City Council terms opening up.
Up for grabs are the seats cur-
rently held by Mayor Matt
Grocott, Vice Mayor Bob Grassilli
and Councilwoman Karen Clapper
who was appointed last year to fill
a mid-term vacancy. Grassilli is
definitely in for another run at
retaining his council seat, Grocott
is undecided and Clapper well,
Clapper isnt saying anything her-
self but a recent request by a fel-
low councilmember at a meeting
raises questions on whether she
might have a go at a full term.
Clapper accepted the appoint-
ment last year with the caveat she
would not run for the full term but
on Monday Councilman Ron
Collins asked the council if it
would consider agendizing a dis-
cussion on whether to withdraw
the request. Grassilli pointed out
the prohibition isnt legally bind-
ing. He later told the Daily Journal
he just felt the discussion would be
a rehash of the multi-meeting
debate that ended with the request
as a compromise on how to name a
replacement for former mayor
Andy Klein who resigned in April.
With Clapper recusing herself and
Councilman Mark Olbert on oppo-
site ends, the suggestion fizzled.
Clapper then is left able to run, if
she chooses, but without possibly a
formal blessing of the council.
Clapper did not return inquiries
for comment
about her plans.
Grocott said
he holds tight
to his original
stance that the
appointee sit
out this election
although she
would be fine
running in
another two
years unless
both he and
Grassilli opted
against re-elec-
tion. Although
Grocott admit-
tedly is unde-
cided about his
own re-election
bid, Grassillis
resolution to
run answers
w h e t h e r
Grocott would
give Clapper
backing to seek
the seat.
The councils
ultimate deci-
sion to ask
appointees last
year not to run
this fall kept former councilwoman
Inge Tiegel Doherty from seeking
the chance to fill in for Klein. She
is making good on that plan to run
by filing candidacy paperwork and
gearing up for the chance to return
to the council after a five-year hia-
Tiegel Doherty was previously
appointed to the council in 2001
following then-mayor David
Buckmasters departure and ran
unopposed for a
full term but did
not seek another
round in 2007

that, she said.
She applied last year for the tem-
porary seat but could not commit
to the request not to seek a seat this
Cameron Johnson, a member of
the Economic Development
Advisory Commission, has also
filed paperwork and is already col-
lecting endorsements. Like Tiegel
Doherty, he initially applied to the
18-month interim position but
withdrew after the council asked
applicants not to run in 2013.
At age 35, Johnson would bring
a younger voice to the council
which lost its last 30-something
representative with Kleins resig-
nation. As the father of a 2-year-
old daughter, Johnson calls the
school system the lifeblood of
the city and wants to make sure the
two entities work well together.
His bid for council is a way to get
involved and work for the next
10, 20, 30, 40 years on keeping
San Carlos an amazing place, he
Neither had much to say about
Collins proposal or Clappers pos-
sible run aside from believing she
would not because of the earlier
request. Regardless, both also said
they plan vigorous campaigns
regardless of the candidate pool.
Even though Grassilli is an
incumbent, he said hes also not
taking re-election for granted, par-
ticularly with opponents already
lining up and former mayor Randy
Royce having been unseated dur-
ing the last election. Grassilli is
also ready for the challenges of a
third term, especially after righting
the citys financial boat.
The first four years we did
some things but the next four was
digging ourselves out of a hole.
Now, its time to try to do things
again, he said.
Grocott is equally interested in
some of the citys upcoming plans
and projects but is still weighing
his options.
Im certainly considering it but
I havent made up my mind,
Grocott said.
Tiegel Doherty concedes there
are still several months before the
candidate filing deadline and the
final ballot lineup could very well
change. But she and the other
declared candidates said there is
no point in waiting to announce.
If youre planning to do it, you
might as well let folks know,
Tiegel Doherty said.

Police canvassing area where
girl, 13, was found dead
FAIRFIELD Faireld police
investigators were on the streets
early Sunday canvassing the neigh-
borhood near the park where a 13-
year-old girl was found dead, a
police spokesman said.
Ofcers were interviewing neigh-
bors as they tried to track down
leads in the search for the girls
killer, while investigators were ask-
ing for the publics help with any
information that would help them
determine the whereabouts of the
girl after she disappeared Thursday
and was found dead Friday, said
Ofcer Cleo Mayoral, a department
If anybody knew anything, or
saw anything, we are asking them to
give us a call, Mayoral told The
Associated Press.
A passerby discovered the girls
naked body a little before 7 a.m.
Friday in the citys Alan Witt Park
and agged down a police ofcer
who was driving by, Mayoral said.
An autopsy was performed, but
police did not release the girls name
or her cause of death. Mayoral said
there were no obvious signs of trau-
ma to the girl when she was found.
The girl was reported missing
around 5:45 p.m. Thursday by her
guardian at a foster home in nearby
Suisun City. That citys police
Cmdr. Tim Mattos told the Daily
Republic that the guardian last saw
her board a school bus. He said she
was in class all day and was expect-
ed home around 4 p.m.
He called the discovery of the
dead child a shock to our system.
Sacramento television station
CBS13 reported the girl attended
Green Valley Middle School, which
is about eight miles from the park.
Man arrested after stealing candy
with fake gun, hiding meth in rectum
A man was arrested early Saturday morning
after allegedly stealing candy from a South
San Francisco convenience store with a repli-
ca gun and for allegedly hiding drugs in his
rectum, police said.
Around 3:31 a.m., the suspect entered a
convenience store in the 600 block of El
Camino Real and was stopped by store clerks
after trying to steal candy, according to police.
Police said the suspect, 29-year-old Daly
City man Michael Aragon, pulled out a repli-
ca handgun and refused to pay for the candy,
then ed in his car onto El Camino Real.
Ofcers informed of the robbery found
Aragon walking away from his car at the
Towne Center shopping mall in San Bruno
and quickly apprehended him.
Aragon was evaluated and determined to be
under the inuence of a controlled substance.
While he was being booked into San Mateo
County Jail in Redwood City, he was also
found to be concealing crystal methampheta-
mine in his rectum.

organized the reghters. But they were not effective enough,
and the re departments of Burlingame, Hillsborough and
Redwood City were called upon to help. The re continued
throughout the night.
The next day, after taking inventory of the things saved from
the re, it was found that much of the furniture and guests
belongings Borden thought were being looted by opportunists
had only been misplaced. Much furniture had been saved by
the 2,000 to 3,000 onlookers of the re the night before, and
these were auctioned off at a sale. However, the $500,000 loss
of the mansion itself was not covered by insurance and the
hotel was never rebuilt.

Hesky Kutscher needed to get across
town, he didnt call a taxi. He tapped
a smartphone app called Lyft, which
allows users to request car rides.
Minutes later, a black hatchback
with a big uffy, pink mustache on its
grille pulled up. Kutscher hopped in
the front seat and gave the driver a st
bump. Then they cruised over the
hilly streets of San Francisco, chat-
ting like neighbors until he was
dropped off near Union Square.
Kutscher, who runs a medical data
rm, said ride-hailing apps like Lyft
with its whimsical mustaches
are more convenient than cabs: I
need to get from A to B. They do it
well, they do it for a good price, and
the drivers are friendly.
Fed up with traditional taxis, more
city dwellers are using their smart-
phones to request rides using GPS-
enabled mobile apps that let riders
and drivers nd each other in real
time. Ride-summoning services such
as Uber, SideCar and Lyft are
expanding rapidly in San Francisco,
New York
and other
U.S. cities.
U b e r
allows pas-
sengers to
use their
s m a r t -
phones to
s u mmo n
luxury town cars and other vehicles
driven by professional drivers.
Customer credit cards are charged
fares based on time and distance.
Lyft and SideCar describe them-
selves as community ridesharing
platforms that connect riders and
drivers, who use their own vehicles.
After each ride, passengers are asked
for a voluntary donation based on
what others paid for similar trips. The
companies take a 20 percent cut.
We started Lyft to create a system
for matching up people who need a
ride with people who can offer a
ride, said Logan Green, co-founder
of San Francisco-based Zimride,
which operates Lyft.
But taxi operators say the new ride
services are little more than illegal
cabs that dont have permits, pay city
fees or follow regulations. The
upstarts are also steering business
away from cab drivers, making it
harder to earn a living.
It makes for an uneven playing
eld, said Barry Korengold, who
heads the San Francisco Cab Drivers
Association. Were not trying to sti-
e technology. Were saying do it in
the legal way.
Uber, which launched in 2010 and
offers ride services in 18 cities, has
been sued by San Francisco cab driv-
ers and Chicago car-service compa-
nies alleging unfair business. The
San Francisco-based company has
also run into trouble with regulators
in New York, Vancouver, Boston and
Washington, D.C.
The California Public Utilities
Commission last year issued cease-
and-desist orders and $20,000 nes
to Lyft, Sidecar and Uber for operat-
ing illegally. The agency says they
are charter-party carriers of passen-
gers that need permits certifying
their drivers are properly screened,
licensed and insured.
In December, the commission
agreed to evaluate the safety of the
Internet-based ride services and
plans to draft new rules to regulate
them over the next several months.
Last week, the agency reached
agreements with Lyft and Uber that
allows them to operate legally until
the new rules are written. Its in dis-
cussions with SideCar over its oper-
Were not trying to put them out
of business, but they cannot avoid the
basics of public safety, said Frank
Lindh, the commissions general
Lyft and SideCar say theyre not
charter-party carriers, but ridesharing
platforms. They say they shouldnt be
regulated like taxis or limos because
rides are prearranged, payments are
voluntary and the rms dont own the
vehicles or employ the drivers.
Existing regulations have not
caught up with the technology, said
Sunil Paul, CEO of SideCar, which
launched a year ago in San Francisco
and is preparing to expand to 15
other cities. This is a new medium,
and a new medium needs a new set
of rules.
Lyft and Sidecar say they have
measures to ensure passenger safety.
They interview drivers, check driv-
ing records, conduct criminal back-
ground checks and inspect vehicles.
Drivers use their own insurance, but
both companies provide additional
coverage up to $1 million.
Other cities and states are also g-
uring out how to regulate the new
transportation apps. The
International Association of
Transportation Regulators is work-
ing on guidelines for regulations
that, if adopted, could restrict the
Internet-based ride-hailing apps
should be regulated, but regulators
must be careful not to quash innova-
tion in a transportation sector, said
Daniel Sperling, director of the
Institute of Transportation Studies at
the University of California, Davis.
Sperling believes technology can
reduce congestion, pollution and
greenhouse-gas emissions by mak-
ing transportation more efcient and
convenient, allowing more people to
live without personal cars.
This is the rst wave of what we
hope will be a whole series of inno-
vative companies and technologies
that will transform transportation as
we know it, Sperling said.

Early elective births dropped from
8.82 percent to zero in less than a year at
Sequoia Hospital, a move hospital of-
cials say will be good for newborns.
The reduction in elective early deliv-
eries is part of a shift in the Dignity
Health system, which includes Sequoia.
Overall, the 32 hospitals in the health
system that operate labor and delivery
units reduced deliveries between 37 and
39 weeks to 1 percent and saved an esti-
mated $1 million in neonatal intensive
care unit costs, according to Sequoia
The effort is about giving children
the best possible start in life, said Dr.
John Hoff, OB/GYN. We are constant-
ly striving to provide the highest quality
care, keeping up with the latest research
while providing the birth experience
mothers want.
In recent years, more new parents
were choosing to induce labor early for
a variety of reasons such as simply to
better plan or to alleviate discomfort that
often comes in the nal months of preg-
nancy, said Hoff.
While that has become more com-
monplace, national statistics show an
increase in newborn feeding problems,
respiratory distress syndrome and
admission into neonatal intensive units
as risks associated with early elective
births, according to the California
Maternal Quality Care Collaborative.
Newborns who are admitted to the
NICU typically spend ve days there.
Knowing the risks, the effort to reduce
the number of elected early births start-
ed. That doesnt mean labor cant be
induced for medical reasons, said Hoff.

WASHINGTON The National Rie
Associations executive vice president contin-
ued to oppose background checks for all gun
purchases despite polls indicating that most
NRA members dont share his position.
The NRAs Wayne LaPierre said on Fox
News Sunday that background checks for all
gun purchases would lead to a national reg-
istry of gun owners. Critics say such a registry
could lead to taxes on guns or to conscation.
Mark Kelly, a gun owner and husband of
Gabrielle Giffords, the former Arizona con-
gresswoman who survived a 2011 shooting,
asked LaPierre to listen to his members. He
said the current system prevented 1.7 million
gun purchases since 1999. However, those
potential buyers had other options because
many gun sales dont require a background
Members of the NRA tend to be very rea-
sonable on this issue, Kelly said, who also
appeared on the Fox show.
As Congress responds to the spate of mass
shootings in recent years, most notably the
December massacre of 20 children and six
adults in a school in Newtown, Conn., some
are calling for a ban on certain semi-automat-
ic weapons and on high-capacity ammunition
magazines. However, calls for expanding
background checks appear to have gained the
most bipartisan support.
LaPierre said that requiring checks for all
gun purchases would be a bureaucratic night-
Its going to affect only the law-abiding
people, he said. Criminals could care less.
LaPierre was pressed about his contention
that gun checks would lead to a national reg-
istry, when no one from the Obama adminis-
tration is calling for that.
And Obamacare wasnt a tax until they
needed it to be a tax, LaPierre said.
Kelly and LaPierre agreed on one point:
More people seeking to buy guns illegally
should be prosecuted.
They should be prosecuted and there
should be stiff penalties, Kelly said.
A key player in the coming gun debate in
Congress, Senate Majority Leader Harry
Reid, said on ABCs This Week that hes
willing to take a look at legislation that would
ban certain semi-automatic weapons, but he
also noted that he voted against a ban on such
weapons in 1994 because it didnt make
He was more denitive on the issue of
background checks, saying everyone
acknowledges we should do something with
background checks.
Reid said his goal is for the Judiciary
Committee to report out a gun bill. Senators
could subsequently seek amendments on the

tain certain provisions, such as the ban on cer-
tain weapons, then sponsors would at least get
a vote on their proposal and lawmakers would
have to go on the record about where they

LOS ANGELES The federal govern-
ments push for drastic reforms at chronically
low achieving schools has led to takeovers by
charter operators, overhauls of staff and cur-
riculum, and even school shutdowns across
the country.
Its also generated a growing backlash
among the mostly low-income, minority com-
munities where some see the reforms as not
only disruptive in struggling neighborhoods,
but also as civil rights violations since turn-
around efforts primarily affect black and
Latino students.
Our concern is that these reforms have fur-
ther destabilized our communities, said Jitu
Brown, education organizer of Chicagos
Kenwood-Oakwood Community
Organization. Its clear theres a different set
of rules for African-American and Latino chil-
dren than for their white counterparts.
The U.S. Department of Educations civil
rights ofce has opened investigations into 33
complaints from parents and community
members, representing 29 school districts
ranging from big city systems such as
Chicago, Detroit and Washington D.C. to
smaller cities including Wichita and Ambler,
Penn., said spokesman Daren Briscoe. Two
additional complaints are
under evaluation, and
more cities, including Los
Angeles, are preparing
their lings.
Last week, Secretary
Arne Duncan elded com-
plaints at a public forum in
Washington. The forum

people who boarded

ings and present a reform model that calls for
more community input, among other items.
The recurrent theme is that communities are
fed up with substandard education, but want
solutions that will not create upheaval at the
schools, which are often seen as pillars of sta-
bility in neighborhoods where social fabric is
Instead of focusing on dramatically chang-
ing the structure of a school, ofcials should
invest in improving teaching, learning, equip-
ment, and community engagement, which
happens more often at schools in white, afu-
ent neighborhoods, Brown said.
But the response of the school district is to

Reformers say civil rights complaints are
misguided because school failure dispropor-
tionately impacts minorities in the rst place.
Turnarounds are efforts to improve that, said
Michael Petrilli, executive vice president of
the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, an educa-
tion think tank.
However, he noted that turnarounds are
often a Band-Aid solution. Most of the turn-
arounds arent going to succeed because the
school continues to exist in a dysfunctional
school system. Radical change at the district
may be whats needed.
Federal ofcials said they are open to work-

Overhauling the nations 5,000 lowest-per-
forming schools is a cornerstone of the
Obama administrations education policy. To
do that, the federal government revamped the
existing School Improvement Grant program,
boosting it from a $125 million annual initia-
tive in 2007 to $535 million for the current
school year.
Under the renewed program, which
launched in 2010 with a onetime $3.5 billion
infusion, districts receive grants to institute
one of four school jumpstart models.

that his country was behind an

high prole security conference that

action against its enemies are not
empty. We mean it, Ehud Barak
Israel has not ofcially conrmed
its planes attacked a site near
Damascus, targeting ground-to-air
missiles apparently heading for
Lebanon, but its intentions have
been beyond dispute. During the 22
months of civil war in Syria, Israeli
leaders have repeatedly expressed
concern that high-end weapons
could fall into the hands of enemy

For years, Israel has been charg-
ing that Syrian President Bashar
Assad and Iran have been arming
Hezbollah, which fought a month-
long war against Israel in 2006.
U.S. ofcials say the target was a
convoy of sophisticated Russian
SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles.
Deployed in Lebanon, they could
have limited Israels ability to gath-
er intelligence on its enemies from
the air.
Over the weekend, Syrian TV
broadcast video of the Wednesday
attack site for the rst time, showing
destroyed vehicles and a damaged
building identied as a scientic
research center. The U.S. ofcials
said the airstrike hit both the build-
ing and the convoy.
In his comments Sunday in
Munich, Barak came close to con-
rming that his country was behind
the operation.
I cannot add anything to what
you have read in the newspapers
about what happened in Syria sever-
al days ago, Barak told the gather-
ing of top diplomats and defense
ofcials from around the world.
Then he went on to say, I keep
telling frankly that we said and
thats proof when we said some-
thing we mean it we say that we
dont think it should be allowed to
bring advanced weapons systems
into Lebanon. He spoke in heavily
accented English.
Syria, with the awareness of its
people, the might of its army and its
adherence to the path of resistance,
is able to face the current challenges
and confront any aggression that
might target the Syrian people,

state news agency SANA.

First steps before
leaf blower ban
Before developing an ordinance to
criminalize xed-income retirees use
of leaf blowers in their private back-
yards, the San Mateo City Council
should consider some practical rst
1). Direct city staff to cease use of
leaf blowers on city property. This
decision does not take an ordinance and
makes the city adjust its budget rst
before chasing down residents occa-
sional private use. Municipal stafng
costs for more city gardeners could
result on library furloughs, police cut-
backs or other budget reductions. Or,
city parks and other facilities could
have less cleaning, which will result in
increased mold, standing animal feces
and storm drain blockage from unre-
moved leaves.
2). Meet and confer with schools
leaders to identify their likely costs if
leaf blowers are criminalized.
3). Contact strip mall owners and
large job center property managers to
inform them of likely cost increases
for heightened parking lot manage-
ment and gardening costs. What is the

Double dipping
should be banned
The recent news stories about San
Mateo County Supervisor Don Horsley
and his pension/stipend decisions bring
to the forefront of my mind a way
California can help reduce its retire-
ment liability and close a some of its
decit. It is simple, outlaw double dip-
ping. Any state, county or municipal
employee cannot receive a pension
while drawing salary or other employ-
ment compensation. Of course they
could, if moving from one position to
another or coming out of retirement,
contribute to their retirement or take
their retirement pay in lieu of salary or
compensation. The law would only
limit retirees from taking both retire-
ment and salary from the governments
of California allowing retirees to
freely work in the private sector.

ts difcult to escape the irony of
Jerry Browns time in Sacramento
actually, his times, plural.
Brown was rst elected California
governor in 1975, serving two terms.
Before that, he had been Californias
secretary of state, and following his
rst stint as governor, he spent years as
mayor of Oakland and then eased back
into statewide politics as Californias
attorney general.
The guy cant seem to stay away
from politics, perhaps because he is the
son of the late Pat Brown, who was this
states 32nd governor.
But politics can be incendiary, and
Jerry Brown was burned by that heat in
the late 1970s and into the 80s, when
he tried but failed to win the
Democratic nomination for president,
and then ran unsuccessfully for the U.S.
The ironic part is that hes back, in a
big way, having been chosen by voters
as Californias 39th governor, and he
gave his second in this latest incar-
nation state-of-the-state address Jan.
24. He pronounced California to be in
pretty good shape nancially, with
brightening prospects for the future
if government and voters can act
Thats the thing about Jerry Brown.
He tends to say whats on his mind
without much regard for consequences,
especially these days, when the notion
of being president of the United States
is no more than a thought of what
might have been.
But it is interesting to watch Brown
work both the California citizenry and
its lawmakers. He has an almost singu-
lar talent for exuding optimism and
hope. Maybe it is the result of having
been governor at a time in the 1970s
when this was still the Golden State.
That was also an era when much of the
states most critically important infra-
structure was created, with an encom-
passing halo of opportunity for any and
all who dared to work hard.
Much of that aura has dissipated over
the past four decades, and we believe
that was Browns chief motivation for,
at a fairly advanced age, deciding to
take a leadership role again.
What Brown and the rest of us have
witnessed in recent years is a widening
gulf between government and the gov-
erned. Average citizens no longer trust
decisions made in Sacramento, in part
because so many decisions over the
past 20 years or so have been so wrong.
Weve all witnessed the fracturing of
once-reliable systems. Governors and
Legislature disagree. Voters and policy
makers disagree. Business owners and
regulators disagree. Everyone disagrees
about just about everything.
Perhaps that dynamic is starting to
change. Maybe the new Gov. Brown
very much like the other Gov. Brown,
only much older is part of the reason
for the change, or maybe its simply
exasperation with our current state of
affairs. But many people at least appear
willing to coalesce, work on the same
page, get important stuff done.
The success of Browns Proposition
30 tax increase was, in the context of
past hostilities, fairly stunning. The
governor made a compelling case for
education needing the extra funding,
which it surely does, and voters saw
and understood the need.
California is not magically xed, its
golden sheen restored. But there is a
new glimmer of hope and promise. Our
government is still functionally obso-
lete and broken, but there appears to be
new energy going into repairs. Brown
probably deserves credit for some of
that. Another dollop of praise should go
to voters, who are seeing the utility of
taxing themselves a bit more so we can
dig ourselves out of a deep hole.
Now, if Sacramento doesnt walk all
over this promising landscape with
muddy feet, maybe the future will be

It took six
years to build
a dream
n 1984, San Mateo attorney Lee Osborne was about to
be installed as a the new president of the local Rotary.
His brother Lloyd, a Redwood City club member, sug-
gested a challenge that Lee do something different and big
to help the community. The San Mateo club had devoted most
of its fundraising to student scholarships. Osborne believed
the time had come for Rotarians to also focus on affordable
senior housing. So the dream began. It took until 1990 for
Rotary Hacienda to open its doors. In those six years, there
were many hurdles to overcome, some routine and some unex-
First, Osborne had to enlist
the help of a group of inu-
ential Rotarians. They includ-
ed some of the major players
in the community: Dick
DeLong, San Mateo city
manager; John de Russy, the
citys nance director; Dave
Bohannon and T. Jack Foster,
major developers; Julian
Crocker, the superintendent
of the San Mateo-Foster City
Elementary School District;
two city councilmembers,
Paul Gumbinger and Aron
Hoffman; dentist Richard Orr and banker Ed Johnson. Later
on, businessman Lew Rowe, another Rotarian, worked with
Johnson and Osborne to make the dream happen.
Then there was nding the right place. The group settled on
land formerly used by Beresford Elementary School on 28th
Avenue. It was for sale. But the school district had to offer it
up to a public agency rst. The city of San Mateo agreed to
buy the site with redevelopment funds at the appraisal price of
$980,000. They sold it back to the Rotary Club for the same
price but the note was not due until 2060.
Next hurdle was the money. The club raised $225,000 from
its own members and received a $4 million tax credit from
Fannie Mae. Finally there were enough funds to start building.
But Rotary needed the approval of the two government
agencies involved. San Mateos city attorney decided that the
two members of the council who were Rotary members could
not vote. Osborne met with the three other councilmembers
Jane Baker, Donna Richardson and Jane Powell and con-
vinced them to support Rotary Hacienda. The school district
had given tentative approval for the sale but then, before the
nal vote, two of its members abruptly left the school board. It
seems the two, although married to others at the time, had fall-
en in love, decided to divorce their spouses and marry each
other. Osborne had to wait until two new board members took
their place before the sale was legally conrmed.
The biggest problem turned out to be the neighbors. At the
rst neighborhood meeting, Osborne showed a lm of similar
senior housing in other cities and assumed the group would
say, Oh, how nice, and be on board. Instead, most were vig-
orously opposed. There were concerns of trafc and parking.
Some were afraid hearses would drive on neighborhood
streets to pick up bodies of deceased residents. Others were
worried about the noise of ambulances and sirens in the mid-
dle of the night.
There were a few who supported the project, including the
clergy across the street at St. Gregorys. The
Beresford/Hillsdale Homeowners Association led a lawsuit
to stop the project, but it was dismissed. Then a neighbor sued
on her own, lost the case, but appealed the decision She lost
that one, too. The lawsuits caused almost three years of delay.
Finally, in 1989, work began on the 82 apartment senior
affordable housing, known as Rotary Hacienda. When it
opened its doors the following year, 130 grateful seniors were
ready to move in. Ever since, there has been a waiting list of
Now Lee Osborne had built his dream. But he didnt stop
there. He realized the demand for housing for the elderly in
San Mateo far exceeded the availability. So again through
Rotary and with the help of its members, he embarked on a
second affordable senior housing project, Floritas. The second
time around was much easier. The site was the former First
Christian Church of San Mateo land located on 27th Avenue.
There were no neighbor objections or lawsuits. Again, the city
of San Mateo, through its redevelopment agency, was a will-
ing partner in helping to nance the project. Floritas includes
10 two-bedroom and 40 one-bedroom apartments. It opened
its doors in 2005 and, similar to the Haciendas, was full the
rst day and has a waiting list of more than 100.

NEW YORK The stock market may have
packed much of its fun for the year into one
exhilarating January.
The market charged to its best start in
decades even though the U.S. economy and
corporate prots havent broken out of a three-
year pattern of slow, steady improvement
despite record-low interest rates and billions of
dollars of stimulus and tax cuts.
This steady growth will likely make for a
good year for stocks, but January may account
for much of the years rise, analysts think.
We thought this was going to be a good year
for equities, we just didnt think wed get it all
in the rst month, says Barry Knapp, head of
U.S. equity strategy at Barclays Capital. Id
love for the market to keep going up but when
I look forward I see a lot of headwinds.
Corporate earnings growth is expected to
slow dramatically early this year. Higher taxes
will probably crimp peoples spending. The
relief after the scal cliff was averted will like-
ly turn to anxiety as Congress bickers over a
package of spending cuts. Job growth is steady,
but unemployment has ticked up to 7.9 percent.
Adding to those worries is the economys
unexpected retreat in the fourth quarter. The
slowdown resulted from one-time factors like
lower defense spending, but it shows how vul-
nerable the economy is to government spend-
ing cuts and political ghts.
Theres much more downside risk, says
Doug Cote, chief market strategist at ING
Investment Management. Right now theres
momentum behind the market and it seems to
ignore bad news.
Markets surged as soon as the calendar
turned to 2013 and kept rising for much of the
month, pushing the Dow Jones industrial
average to within a whisper of a record and
pushing the S&P 500 past 1,500 for the rst
time in 5 years. The Dow logged its best start
to the year in almost two decades. The
Standard & Poors 500 nished the month 5
percent higher, its best start to the year since
February started off on the same foot: The
Dow nished up Friday 149 points to 14,010
and the S&P 500 rose 15 points to 1,513.
But the market may have gotten ahead of
Now that half of companies in the S&P 500
have reported fourth-quarter earnings, prot
growth is expected to be up 5.8 percent,
according to S&P Capital IQ. While solid,
thats a smaller gain than a year earlier, and
the slowdown could continue. Earnings
growth is expected to slow to 1.7 percent for
the rst quarter.
Corporations continue to lower investor
expectations. Of the companies that have
issued earnings guidance for the rst quarter,
82 percent have reduced estimates, according
to FactSet. In response, analysts have sharply
cut earnings growth expectations over the last
month by half for the rst quarter and by
16 percent for the second quarter.
Earnings are not a reason to be buying
stocks right now, Knapp says.
Talley Leger, investment strategist at Macro
Vision Research, notes that the stocks that
have helped propel the market higher in
January are companies in so-called defen-
sive sectors such as health care providers
and consumer staples producers. Those indus-
tries continue to perform well when the econ-
omy slows down because people still need to
buy medicine and basic goods like shampoo
and diapers.
The market is slowly starting to realize
that an air pocket opened up between where
stocks thought the economy was and where
the economy actually was, Leger says.
Leger and others predict a dip in the market
sometime in the next three months as
investors realize economic and corporate
growth arent quite as strong as predicted.
But that could allow the stock market to
grow again in the second half of the year.
While the economy might not yet be ready to
accelerate quickly, analysts remain condent
that it will keep growing.
And even if the market rises only modestly
from here, it could still make for a strong year.
As Howard Silverblatt, an analyst at S&P,
notes, January performance is a good indicator
of annual performance. In 61 of the last 84
years the direction of the market in the rst
month matched the direction of the market for
the year.
Wall Street may be getting ahead of itself
By Joan Lowy
WASHINGTON At the same
time the government certified
Boeings 787 Dreamliners as safe,
federal rules barred the type of bat-
teries used to power the airliners
electrical systems from being car-
ried as cargo on passenger planes
because of the re risk.
Now the situation is reversed.
Dreamliners worldwide were
grounded nearly three weeks ago after
lithium ion batteries that are part of
the planes led to a re in one plane
and smoke in a second. But new rules
exempt aircraft batteries from the ban
on large lithium ion batteries as cargo
on ights by passenger planes.
In effect, that means the
Dreamliners batteries are now
allowed to y only if theyre not
attached to a Dreamliner.
The regulations were published on
Jan. 7, the same day as a battery re in
a Japan Airlines 787 parked at
Bostons Logan International Airport
that took reghters nearly 40 min-
utes to put out. The timing of the two
events appears coincidental.
Pilots and safety advocates say
the situation doesnt make sense. If
the 787s battery system is too risky
to allow the planes to y, then its
too risky to ship the same batteries
as cargo on airliners, they said.
These incidents have raised the
whole issue of lithium batteries and
their use in aviation, said Jim Hall, a
former National Transportation
Safety Board chairman. Any trans-
port of lithium batteries on commer-
cial aircraft for any purpose should be
suspended until (an) NTSB investiga-
tion is complete and we know more
about this entire issue.
Chesley Sully Sullenberger, a
former US Airways pilot famed for
his precision ying that enabled pas-
sengers and crew to survive an emer-
gency landing on the Hudson River
in New York, said in an interview
that he wouldnt be comfortable y-
ing an airliner that carried lithium
ion aircraft batteries in its cargo hold.
The potential for self-ignition, for
uncontained res, is huge, he said.
The new regulations need to be
looked at very hard in the cold light of
day, particularly with what has hap-
pened with the 787 batteries.
The battery rules were changed in
order to conform U.S. shipping
requirements with international
standards as required by Congress,
the federal Pipeline and Hazardous
Materials Safety Administration
said in a statement.
The International Civil Aviation
Organization, a U.N. agency that
sets global aviation standards,
adopted the aircraft battery cargo
exemption in October 2011, and it
went into effect Jan. 1. The organi-
zations standards normally arent
binding. But a provision inserted
into U.S. law at the behest of the
battery industry and their shippers
says the rules cant be stricter than
the U.N. agencys standards.
Previously, U.S. regulations prohib-
ited the shipment of lithium ion bat-
teries on passenger planes in pack-
ages weighing more than 11 pounds,
although heavier batteries could be
shipped on cargo planes.
The new rules allow the shipment
of lithium ion batteries weighing as
much as 77 pounds, but only if they
are aircraft batteries. Shipments of
other lithium ion batteries greater
than 11 pounds are still prohibited.
The 787s two batteries weigh 63
pounds each. Its the rst airliner to
make extensive use of lithium ion
batteries, which weigh less and
store more power than other batter-
ies of a similar size.
The aircraft battery exemption was
created for the convenience of the air-
line industry, which wants to be able
to quickly ship replacement batteries
to planes whose batteries are depleted
or have failed. Sometimes its faster to
do that using a passenger plane.
The NTSB is investigating the
cause of the 787 battery re in
Boston. Japanese authorities are
investigating a battery failure that led
to an emergency landing by an All
Nippon Airways 787 on Jan. 16. All
Dreamliners, which are operated by
eight airlines in seven countries, have
since been grounded.
Boeings 787 grounded, but batteries can y
Proposed agreement
squashes tomato war
WASHINGTON A proposed agreement on fresh toma-
toes imported from Mexico would strengthen anti-dumping
enforcement and reset minimum wholesale prices, the
Commerce Department said.
The agreement with Mexicos tomato industry would sus-
pend an investigation initiated after Florida tomato growers
complained that Mexican producers were selling fresh toma-
toes for less than the production cost.
The proposal would replace a pact thats been in place for 16
years. The Commerce Department on Saturday released a draft
of the agreement for public comment.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says it would allow the U.S.
tomato industry to compete on a level playing eld.
U.S. tomato growers are tentatively backing the proposal.
Edward Beckman, president of Certied Greenhouse Farmers, said
the new agreement must address pricing, coverage and enforce-
ment of trade laws.
We believe that the Department of Commerce and Mexico have
struck a deal that meets those three tests, and were hopeful and
optimistic that well be able to compete under fair trade condi-
tions, Beckman said in a statement released Sunday. Much work
remains to have the agreement fully and faithfully implemented,
and continuous monitoring and enforcement will be critical.
Florida produces much of the nations winter tomato supply, and
Florida growers were asking the Commerce Department to end the
fresh tomato importation trade agreement. The Florida growers
claimed their Mexican counterparts have been dumping sell-
ing for less than the cost of production their product in the U.S.,
driving down prices and costing jobs. The growers complaint had
the support of farmworker representatives.
An Arizona-based trade association, which sponsored a pric-
ing study, warned that if Mexican tomatoes withdrew from the
U.S. market, the prices for some hothouse tomatoes would dou-
ble from $2.50 a pound to nearly $5.

NEW ORLEANS From blowout
to blackout to shootout, Joe Flacco and
the Baltimore Ravens had just enough
to survive one of the most electric
Super Bowls ever.
The outage ipped a switch for the
San Francisco 49ers, but the Ravens
used a last-gasp defensive stand to hold
on Sunday night, 34-31.
Americas biggest sporting event
came to a half-hour standstill in the
third quarter when most of the
Superdome lights and the scoreboards
went dark. By then, the Ravens had a
22-point lead.
Everything changed after that,
though, and the 49ers staged a sensa-
tional rally before Ray Lewis and Co.
shut it down. But there were plenty of
white-knuckle moments and the
Ravens (14-6) had to make four stops
inside their 7 at the end.
For a Super Bowl with so many sub-
plots, it almost had to end this way.
Flaccos arrival as a championship
quarterback coincides with Lewis
retirement with a second Super
Bowl ring no less. The win capped a
sensational month since the star line-
backer announced he was leaving the
game after 17 Hall of Fame-caliber
The sibling rivalry between the
coaching Harbaughs went to John,
older than Jim by 15 months.
How could it be any other way? Its
never pretty. Its never perfect. But its

At 4 hours, 14 minutes, it was the
longest Super Bowl ever. Among the
most thrilling, too.
The loss of power delayed the game
34 minutes and left players from both
sides stretching and chatting with each
other. It also cost Baltimore whatever
momentum it built, and that was con-
siderable after Jacoby Jones 108-yard
kickoff return and game MVP Flaccos
three touchdown passes made it 28-6.
Back came San Francisco (13-5-1) in
search of its sixth Lombardi Trophy in

as many tries.
Michael Crabtrees 31-yard touchdown reception on which
he broke two tackles made it 28-13. A couple minutes later,
Frank Gores 6-yard run followed a 32-yard punt return by Ted
Ginn Jr., and the 49ers were within eight.
Ray Rices fumble at his 24 led to David Akers 34-yard
eld goal, but Baltimore woke up for a long drive leading to
rookie Justin Tuckers 19-yard eld goal.
San Francisco wasnt done challenging, though, and Colin
Kaepernicks 15-yard TD run, the longest for a quarterback in
a Super Bowl, made it 31-29. A 2-point conversion pass failed
when the Ravens blitzed.
Tucker added a 38-yarder with 4:19 remaining, setting up
the frantic nish.
Kaepernick couldnt get the Ravens into the end zone on the
nal three plays there was contact on Crabtree on the nal
pass that appeared incidental, and Jim Harbaugh insisted it
was holding.
Ravens punter Sam Koch took a safety for the nal score
with 4 seconds left. His free kick was returned by Ginn to mid-
eld as time ran out.
The Harbaughs then met at mideld amid the Ravens con-
fetti-laden celebrations.
Its very tough, John Harbaugh said of their conversation.
Its a lot tougher than I thought it was going to be. Its very
In the rst half, Flacco was as brilliant as Tom Brady, Joe
Montana or Terry Bradshaw ever were in the NFLs biggest
game. The only quarterback to win a playoff game in each of
his rst ve seasons his coach holds the same distinction
was nearly perfect. Overall, Flacco threw for 11 touchdowns
to tie a postseason record, and had no interceptions.
The Ravens stumbled into the playoffs with four defeats in
its last ve regular-season games as Lewis recovered from a
torn right triceps and Flacco struggled. Harbaugh even red
his offensive coordinator in December, a stunning move with
the postseason so close.
But that and every other move Harbaugh, Flacco and the
Ravens made since were right on target. Just like Flaccos
TD passes of 13 yards to Anquan Boldin, 1 to Dennis Pitta and
56 to Jones in the rst half, tying a Super Bowl record.
New Orleans native Jones, one of the heroes in a double-
overtime playoff win at Denver, seemed to put the game away
with his record 108-yard sprint with the second-half kickoff.
Soon after, the lights went out and when they came back
on, the Ravens were almost powerless to slow the 49ers.
Until the nal moments.
The nal series of Ray Lewis career was a goal-line
stand, Harbaugh said.
Lewis sprawled on all fours, face-down on the turf, after the
end zone incompletion.
Its no greater way, as a champ, to go out on your last ride
with the men that I went out with, with my teammates, Lewis
said. And you looked around this stadium and Baltimore!
Baltimore! We coming home, baby! We did it!
It was a bitter loss for Jim Harbaugh, the coach who turned
around the Niners in the last two years and brought them to
their rst Super Bowl in 18 years. His team made a similarly
stunning comeback in the NFC championship at Atlanta, but
couldnt nish it off against Baltimore.
Our guys battled back to get back in, said the 49ers coach,
who was especially upset about the non-call on the pass to
The 49ers couldnt have been sloppier in the rst half, dam-
aging their chances with penalties including one on their
rst play that negated a 20-yard gain poor tackling and
turnovers. Rookie LaMichael James fumbled at the Baltimore
25 to ruin an impressive drive, and the Ravens converted that
with Flaccos 1-yard pass to Pitta for a 14-3 lead.
On San Franciscos next offensive play, Kaepernick threw
behind Randy Moss and always dependable safety Ed Reed
picked it off. A huge scufe followed that brought both
Harbaughs onto the eld and saw both sides penalized 15
yards for unnecessary roughness.
Reed, also a New Orleans native, tied the NFL record for
postseason picks with his ninth.
Baltimore didnt pounce on that mistake for points. Instead,
Tuckers fake eld goal run on fourth-and-9 came up a yard
short when Chris Culliver slammed him out of bounds.
The Ravens simply shrugged, forced a three-and-out, and
then unleashed Jones deep. Just as he did to Denver, he ashed
past the secondary and caught Flaccos ing. He had to wait
for the ball, fell to the ground to grab it, but was untouched by
a Niner. Up he sprang, cutting left and using his speed to out-
run two defenders to the end zone.
Desperate for some points, the 49ers completed four passes
and got a 15-yard roughing penalty against Haloti Ngata, who
later left with a knee injury. But again they couldnt cross the
goal line, Paul Kruger got his second sack of the half on third
down, forcing a second Akers eld goal, from 27 yards.
When Jones began the second half by sprinting up the mid-
dle virtually untouched he is the second player with two
TDs of 50 yards or more in a Super Bowl, tying Washingtons
Ricky Sanders in 1988 the rout was on.
Then it wasnt.
The Ravens thrilling victory provided a grand nale for the
Big Easy, which hosted its rst Super Bowl since 2002 and
rst since Hurricane Katrina ravaged the city. But its been a
tough year for local fans. A bounties scandal and resultant sus-
pensions helped ruin the Saints season almost before it began,
making Commissioner Roger Goodell the citys Public Enemy
No. 1.
The season also was marred by a lockout of the on-eld of-
cials that turned farcical when replacement refs couldnt han-
dle the job.
Even Super Bowl week was disrupted by reports that deer-
antler spray, of all things, might have been used by NFL play-
ers as a performance enhancer.
And then the NFLs showcase event was stopped cold by a
lack of power.
Flacco, though, provided plenty of sizzle.

Kaepernick got tripped up and
tossed down, then still nearly led
the greatest Super Bowl comeback
in just his 10th career NFL start.
Rarely rattled on an impressive
path to the Super Bowl, San
Franciscos second-year quarter-
back finally showed some inexperi-
ence on footballs big stage. Not to
mention some guts.
After a remarkable postseason
run with those speedy legs by
the tattooed play-caller, the
Baltimore Ravens exposed plenty
of flaws in handing Kaepernick
and Co. a 34-31 loss Sunday
despite San Franciscos second-
half rally.
No team has come from more
than 10 points down to win a Super
Bowl, and Kaepernick had a
chance to make it happen less than
three months after becoming San
Franciscos starter.
He regrouped during a 34-minute
delay early in the third quarter
because of a power outage, finding
his groove and turning the Super
Bowl into a wild game down the
stretch and gave yet more cred
to the pistol offense designed by
his old college coach that is so well
suited for the NFLs young, mobile
Kaepernick directed four sec-
ond-half scoring drives, throwing a
31-yard touchdown pass to
Michael Crabtree and also running
15 yards for a TD. But the 49ers
missed the two-point conversion
that would have tied the game with
less than 10 minutes left.
Crabtree didnt get much help in
a mistake-filled first half by San
Francisco (13-5-1), which failed to
stop Joe Flacco and deliver the
franchises sixth championship that
would have matched the Pittsburgh
Steelers for most ever.
The 49ers perfect Super Bowl
record? Thats over, too. They lost
for the first time in the champi-
onship game.
Perhaps its a bit premature to
begin talking Bay Area dynasty
again in football, at least.
Playing for a title for the first
time since Hall of Famers Steve
Young and Jerry Rice won with a
rout of San Diego 18 years ago,
Jim Harbaughs Niners made cost-
ly mistakes on both sides of the
ball early in the game. And special
teams, too.
Kaepernick did a little bit of
everything in San Franciscos final
drive, when the 49ers got the ball
back at their own 20 with 4:19
remaining and trailing 34-29. He
ran for 8 yards, hit Crabtree on a
24-yard gain and handed off to
Frank Gore for a 33-yard run to the
Baltimore 7.
But with three chances from the
5, Kaepernick threw three straight
incomplete passes intended for
Crabtree. His off-balance throw
under pressure on fourth down
sailed through the end zone.
Kaepernick lowered his head
slightly and walked slowly off the

Kaepernick had handled himself
beautifully in hostile environments
beating Drew Brees and the
Saints right here in the Superdome
on Nov. 25, and later guiding the
Niners at New England. And, of
course, the win against the Falcons
on Jan. 20 that returned San
Francisco to the Super Bowl at last.
The 49ers were hoping for their
own downtown victory parade and
to have the World Series champion
Giants take part after Harbaugh
and quarterback Alex Smith drove
in the San Francisco baseball
teams parade last fall.
San Francisco would have

NEW ORLEANS The Super Bowl was
halted for 34 minutes because of a power
outage Sunday night, plunging parts of the
Superdome into darkness and briefly leav-
ing TV viewers of the biggest game of the
year with no football and no explanation
The Baltimore Ravens were leading the San
Francisco 49ers 28-6 when most of the lights
in the 73,000-seat building went out with
13:22 left in the third quarter.
Auxiliary power kept the playing eld from
going totally dark, but escalators stopped
working and the concourses were only illumi-
nated by small banks of lights tied in to emer-
gency service.
Philip Allison, a spokesman for Entergy
New Orleans, which provides power to the
stadium, said power had been owing into the
stadium before the lights failed.
All of our distribution and transmission
feeds going into the Superdome were operat-
ing as expected, Allison said.
He said the outage appeared to originate in
a failure of equipment maintained by stadium
staff. It occurred shortly after Beyonce put on
a 12-minute halftime show that featured
extravagant lighting and video effects.
On the CBS broadcast, play-by-play
announcers Jim Nantz and Phil Simms went
CBS sideline reporter Steve Tasker
announced the problem of a click of the
lights to viewers. Later, the halftime crew
anchored by host James Brown returned to ll
the time with football analysis. Brown said a
power surge caused the outage.
We lost all power up here at the press box
level, Nantz said after power was restored.
He and Simms were off the air for most of the
34-minute outage.
The failure occurred shortly after Jacoby
Jones returned the opening kickoff of the sec-
ond half for a 108-yard touchdown, the
longest play in Super Bowl history and push-
ing the Ravens to a commanding lead. But
when play resumed, the momentum totally
The Niners scored two straight touchdowns
and nearly pulled off a game-winning drive in
the closing minutes. They had rst down
inside the Ravens 10, but Baltimore kept them
out of the end zone to preserve a wild 34-31
The blackout, it turned out, became more of
a footnote than a spark to the greatest come-
back in Super Bowl history.
Still, it was a moment like no other in the
title game.
The public address announcer said the
Superdome was experiencing an interruption
of electrical service and encouraged fans to
stay in their seats. Some fans did the wave to
pass the time. Players milled around on the
sidelines, some took a seat on the bench, other
on the eld. A few of the Ravens threw foot-
balls around.
Ofcials gathered on the eld and appeared
to be talking to stadium personnel. Finally, the
lights came back on throughout the dome and
the game resumed.
Lets go! referee Jerome Boger said to the
The NFL said stadium ofcials were inves-
tigating the cause, but there was no immediate
word of why the power went out.
We sincerely apologize for the incident,
Superdome spokesman Eric Eagan said.
He told the Associated Press that
Superdome technical staff were working more
than hour after the outage to determine what
caused it but still didnt know.
Once the game resumed, CBS said all com-
mercial commitments for the broadcast were
being honored. The network sold out its allot-
ment of advertising at $3.8 million per 30-
second spot.
We lost numerous cameras and some
audio powered by sources in the Superdome,
said Jennifer Sabatelle, vice president of com-
munications for CBS Sports. We utilized
CBS backup power and at no time did we
leave the air.
The outage provided a major glitch to what
has largely been viewed as a smooth week for
New Orleans, which was hosting its rst
Super Bowl since 2002 and was eager to show
off how the city has rebuilt since Hurricane
Mayor Mitch Landrieu called the power
outage an unfortunate moment in what has
been an otherwise shining Super Bowl week
for the city of New Orleans.
In the coming days, I expect a full after
action report from all parties involved. For
us, the Super Bowl isnt over until the last vis-
itor leaves town, so were focused on continu-
ing to show our visitors a good time, said
Landrieu, a Democrat and former lieutenant
governor of Louisiana.
Monique Richard, who is from the north
shore of Lake Pontchartrain, had tickets in the
upper deck.
My exact words on the way over here
were, I hope this goes off without a hitch,
because the city just looked so good, they
were doing so well, the weather so good
everything was kind of falling into place, she
New Orleans was once a regular in the
Super Bowl rotation and hopes to regain that
status. Earlier in the week, the host committee
announced it will bid on the 2018 Super
Bowl, which would coincide with the 300th
anniversary of the citys founding.
The 38-year-old Superdome has undergone
$336 million in renovations since Katrina
ripped its roof in 2005. Billions have been
spent sprucing up downtown, the airport,
French Quarter and other areas of the city in
the past seven years.
Everything shut down, said Carl
Trinchero, a 49ers fan from Napa, Calif., who
was in the Superdome. No credit cards,
vending machines shut down, everything shut
Trinchero said it may have affected the
momentum of the game but, given that the
Ravens survived the 49ers comeback, it did-
nt affect the outcome.
Joked Doug Cook, a Ravens fan from New
Orleans: They didnt pay the light bill.
Still, he admitted to a eeting fear when the
lights went out.
I started thinking it was a terrorist attack. I
was a little nervous, he said.
In the French Quarter, fans didnt appear
much concerned with the power outage or
delay in play.
If we can blame Beyonce for lip syncing,
we can blame her for the power outage, said
Gary Cimperman of Slidell, La., with a laugh
as he watched the second half of the game
from a bar. Or maybe Sean Payton called in
the outage, bounty get part two.
Even out-of-towners seemed to be taking
the outage in stride.
So we had to spend 30 minutes in the
dark? That was just more time for fans to rell
their drinks, said Amanda Black of
Columbus, Miss.

CORVALLIS, Ore. Stanford
coach Tara VanDerveer uses words
such as warrior, competitor and
fabulous to describe Chiney
The standout junior forward did
plenty against Oregon State to justi-
fy her coachs praise.
Ogwumike posted her sixth
straight double-double with a
career-high 32 points and 18
rebounds to lead the No. 4 Cardinal
to a 65-45 win over the Beavers on
Sunday night.
VanDerveer credits Ogwumike
for her consistency. Shes scored in
double digits in
all 21 of
S t a n f o r d s
games and has
reached double
digits in
rebounds 17
The best
thing I can be is
l evel - headed,
keep a smile on
my face throughout the game and
try to compete, said Ogwumike.
Amber Orrange and Bonnie
Samuelson who hit four 3-point-
ers added 12 points apiece for
the Cardinal (20-2, 9-1 Pac-12).
Jamie Weisner had 13 points and
Ali Gibson added 12 for the
Beavers (9-13, 3-7), who trailed by
as many as 16 in the rst half but
closed to 35-26 when Ali Gibson
opened the second half with a
reverse layup.
But Ogwumike, who fell one shy
of her career high in rebounds, then
scored six straight points to help
Stanford regain control.
She does everything for them.
Thats why theyre who they are,
Oregon State coach Scott Rueck
said. If you have one or two of
those in the middle, youre going to
win a lot of games.
Samuelson made consecutive 3-
pointers to stretch Stanfords lead to
49-28 before Oregon State chipped
away, closing the gap to 54-42 on
Gibsons 3-pointer with 6:53 left.
That was as close as the Beavers
would get as Stanford answered
with ve straight points.
Stanford shot 38.5 percent (25 of
65) overall, while Oregon State shot
35.8 percent (19 of 53) in a matchup
of the Pac-12s top two eld goal
percentage defenses.
I just thought our defense was
working really hard, VanDerveer
said. Some people werent knock-
ing down their shots like they usual-
ly do, but sometimes that happens.
Stanford overcame a poor offen-
sive game from Joslyn Tinkle. The
senior forward came in averaging
12.9 points but scored just two on 1-
of-8 shooting.
Ogwumike and Orrange scored
four points apiece in an early 13-3
Stanford run that put the Cardinal
ahead 20-7.
Stanford later scored eight
straight, with Samuelsons second
3-pointer of the half giving the
Cardinal a 28-12 lead.
Weisners layup capped a 6-0
Oregon State run that closed the
decit to 32-22.
Ogwumike had 17 points and
nine rebounds at the break to help
Stanford to a 35-24 halftime lead.
Ogwumike leads Stanford women over Oregon St.
EUGENE, Ore. On a day
when most people from the Bay
Area had their thoughts on another
game, No. 6 California was plenty
The Golden Bears jumped all over
Oregon early and led by double dig-
its for the nal 36 minutes in a 72-
45 victory on Sunday.
Layshia Clarendon scored 15, and
Gennifer Brandon and Talia
Caldwell each had double-doubles
for Cal (19-2, 9-1 Pac-12), which
remained tied with No. 4 Stanford
atop the league standings.
I think this game looks the way it
looks on the scoreboard because of
the intensity and focus our players
played with, said Cal coach
Lindsay Gottlieb, who earned her
100th career win against the Ducks
one game after Stanford coach Tara
Vanderveer recorded her 400th
career Pac-12 victory with an 86-62
win against Oregon on Friday.
Only 40 more years until 900,
joked Gottlieb, who is in her second
season at Cal after three years at UC
Santa Barbara.
Caldwell nished with 14 points
and 14 rebounds, and Brandon had
14 points and 12 rebounds for the
Golden Bears. Brittany Boyd also
had 13 points and eight assists for
We were just playing hard, said
Cardwell, who announced Ray
Lewis is going to win the Super
Bowl today, as she exited the
Golden Bears locker room, an
unsolicited pick of the Baltimore
Ravens and its star linebacker over
the San Francisco 49ers. The good
thing about this team is every game
is important to us. Every game we
want to play really well for each
Devyn Galland scored 11 to lead
the Ducks (3-19, 1-9), who were
without starting guard Ariel
Thomas, out with an undisclosed
injury. Amanda Delgado started in
her place and nished with ve
Thomas is the second point guard
to go down for Oregon, which lost
starter Laura Stanulis after five
games to a season-ending knee
Were down to our third quarter-
back, Oregon coach Paul Westhead
said, so its not easy. . The timing
of things was off-center a little bit.
But part of that was due to Cals
The Golden Bears dominated
inside, getting 44 points in the paint
and outrebounding the Ducks 51-
These kids take so much pride in
being tough and athletic and domi-
nating the boards and you saw all of
that on display today, Gottlieb said.
California put this one away early,
taking advantage of the Ducks poor
shooting and turnover prone offense
to lead 38-19 at halftime.
After Oregons Jordan Loera
scored the opening basket of the
game, the Golden Bears outscored
the Ducks 30-4 over the next 13
minutes to take a commanding 30-6
Clarendon scored 11 of her 13
rst-half points during that stretch.
I loved the way we started this
game and I think it started with our
defense, Gottlieb said. We made it
really tough for them to score. We
focused on shutting down their tran-
sition game and I think we did that
really well.
Other than a layup and two free
throws by Danielle Love on back-
to-back possession that made it 11-
6 with 15:44 to play, the Ducks
went scoreless during the Golden
Bears long run.
Oregon was 1 for 15 from the
eld during that stretch with 11
turnovers that California turned into
12 points.
By halftime, the Ducks had made
just 6 of 28 from the eld (21.4 per-
cent) including 1 for 10 on 3-
pointers with 16 turnovers. They
nished the game with 24 turnovers.
Cal wasnt significantly better,
shooting just 35.9 percent from the
eld in the rst half and 40 per-
cent overall but it didnt have to
be, en route to its season-high sev-
enth straight win.
The Golden Bears lead was
trimmed to a low of 12 points, 48-36
with under 12 minutes to play in the
game, but they quickly answered
with a 19-0 run over the next seven
minutes to take a 67-36 lead before
the Ducks nally scored with 4:50
to play.

By Beth Harris
smothering defense and balanced
offense easily overcame a Utah
team beaten up by a stretch of
games against ranked opponents.
Alyssia Brewer scored 16 points
and the 18th-ranked Bruins forced
18 turnovers in a 70-42 victory on
Sunday, extending the Bruins win-
ning streak to four games.
All 10 UCLA players scored
and nine of them grabbed at least
one rebound. The Bruins held the
Utes to 16 points in the first half,
similar to the 15 points they
allowed in the opening half
against No. 22 Colorado in a win
on Friday night.
As a team, weve been reminding
each other we need to come out
aggressively, said Brewer, who had
six rebounds and four assists. Our
team is growing. Its the consistency
weve talked about every game.
Antonye Nyingifa added 13
points and eight rebounds, and Nirra
Fields had 11 points for the Bruins
(17-4, 8-2 Pac-12), who have won
10 of 12. They limited their
turnovers to 11 after committing a
season-high 29 on Friday.
UCLA coach Cori Close attrib-
uted the fewer miscues to Saturdays
lm session.
It wasnt a beat-yourself-up ses-
sion. It was we got to gure this
out, she said.
Michelle Plouffe had 14 points
and 12 rebounds for her third dou-
ble-double of the season, and
Iwalani Rodrigues added 11 points
for the Utes (11-10, 2-8). Theyve
lost four straight all on the road
and 10 of 11 after winning their
rst seven games. The losing stretch
included playing ranked Stanford,
California and Colorado twice each
last month.
We were gassed, Utah coach
Anthony Levrets said, adding that
the Bruins put a lot of pressure on
the ball. They are big and long. It
was size at every position.
UCLA had the game under con-
trol from the start, racing to a 14-1
lead as the Utes missed all eight of
their eld-goal attempts and com-
mitted nine turnovers. Utah didnt
score its rst basket until Plouffes
layup at 11:19.
They were pressing and trapping
us, Plouffe said. Theyre so athlet-
ic. We didnt handle it very well. In
their half-court defense they were
switching everything. It was hard
for me to get it inside or outside
because nobody was open.
The Bruins extended their lead to
25-5, with Jasmine Dixon and
Brewer scoring four points each and
Kari Korver hitting a 3-pointer.
They shot 44 percent in the half and
led 34-16 at the break.

eaching a child not to step on a
caterpillar is as valuable to the
child as it is to the caterpillar.
Although most quotes displayed in our
Center for Compassion are meant to make
people smile, this one (attributed to Bradley
Millar) is there to make people think.
Educating children has long been part of our
mission. Even during our rst few decades
as a nonprot animal welfare organization
when our staff was really lean, our ofcers,
animal care workers and front ofce staff saw
the value in talking time to work with our
communitys youth. For our last four
decades, generous contributions from sup-
porters have enabled us to have a Humane
Education Department, with paid staff dedi-
cated to this work. Measuring the work isnt
simple, unlike counting adoptions,
spay/neuter surgeries performed at our clinic
or sales from our secondhand store. We can
estimate the number of kids weve reached
with our messages hundreds of thousands,
easily. For some, I dont doubt they took little
from our presentation other than being inter-
ested for a few minutes in the dog who visit-
ed their classroom with our educator. Others,
were convinced, took important lessons
away, and applied them to their own lives and
pets. Things as simple as knowing that a
female dog need not have at least one litter
for health reasons or that one need not rub
the dogs nose in the spot where he soiled or
slap him with a rolled-up newspaper to
housebreak him (we actually say house-
train now). And, we also know of students for
whom our interactions sparked a lifelong
interest in humane education and animal wel-
fare work. If you would like to get your son
or daughter involved, please consider our

NEW YORK The love-struck
zombies of Warm Bodies
swarmed the box ofce on Super
Bowl weekend with a $20 million
On a weekend that Hollywood
largely punts to football, the PG-13
film from Lionsgates Summit
Entertainment easily led the box
ofce, according to studio estimates
Sunday. The Super Bowl always
means a signicant slide in movie-
going on Sunday studios predict
a decrease of as much as 70 percent
from Saturday to Sunday but
Warm Bodies still lured many
teenage fans.
The lm is about a zombie whose
love for a human redeems him.
Lionsgate, which also released the
Twilight saga, is calling it a rom-
zom-com for its mix of humor,
romance and the supernatural. The
film appealed particularly to
females, who made up 60 percent of
the audience.
Theyve denitely cracked the
code on how to attract that teen
audience with films like The
Hunger Games, Twilight and
something like Warm Bodies,
which denitely plays right into the
sweet spot of that demographic,
says box-office
analyst Paul Dergarabedian.
David Spitz, executive vice presi-
dent of Lionsgate, said the studio
courted female teens with Warm
Bodies by pairing its trailer with
the last Twilight lm, Breaking
Dawn, Part II.
Younger female audiences have
some history of turning out on
Super Bowl weekends. The most
successful lm released the week-
end of the big game was in 2008,
when Hannah Montana and Miley
Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds
Concert opened with $31.1 mil-
There was just nothing in the
marketplace like this, said Spitz.
Is it more zombie horror? Is it
more romantic comedy? Is it more
comedy? Its a mixture and thats
the reason why the lm found an
Action lms continued to fare
poorly in 2013, as Sylvester
Stallones Bullet to the Head
opened with just $4.5 million for
Warner Bros. That meant his
brawny cohort Arnold
Schwarzenegger bested him when
his The Last Stand opened with
$7.2 million in January.
But both openings were poor.
Along with the weak performance
of Jason Stathams Parker, which
has taken in $12.4 million in two
weeks for FilmDistrict, moviegoers
arent turning out for traditional R-
rated action movies. That trend
should reverse itself when Bruce
Willis A Good Day to Die Hard
opens Feb. 14, Dergarabedian said.
Last weeks top lm, Paramounts
Hansel and Gretel: Witch
Hunters, dropped to second with
$9.2 million on the weekend.
The other debut of note was
Lionsgates Stand Up Guys,
which stars Al Pacino and
Christopher Walken as veteran
gangsters on a last hurrah romp.
Though it opened in limited release
in 659 theaters, it took in just $1.5
The most Super Bowl-appropriate
lm in theaters, the Oscar-nominat-

Battle for compensation
In July of 2010, Sonnenberg led a disabil-
ity claim for post-traumatic stress disorder,
along with other physical disabilities sus-
tained in combat.
The Oakland VA regional office told
Sonnenberg that much of his needed medical
records from Iraq were lost.
There is a disconnect between the
Department of Defense and the VA, said
Whenever they told me to go somewhere,
I went, he said of his Army service. I could-
nt say I dont know where the paperwork
The Oakland ofce nally told him they
had outsourced his paperwork to another
ofce, but Sonnenberg could not nd out
where it went.
I put in four inquiries and they said they
never got them, he said. Its a broken sys-
He decided to contact U.S. Rep. Jackie
Speier, D-San Mateo.
Jackie Speier took care of everything for
me, said Sonnenberg, who was rated tem-
porarily 100 percent disabled last February.
I felt like nally the government is work-
ing for people, he said.
Self-motivated veteran
Oakland was unbelievable, said Thomas
Vannoni of San Bruno. It seems like the day
never comes.
Vannoni who played football and bas-
ketball and ran track for Capuchino High
School worked on a Navy ship during the
Vietnam War transporting Marines.
They were scared, he said.
He looked over a war book a friend gave
him and pointed to a picture of an armored
boat oating on the Mekong River.
I was on one of those for a while, he said,
drifting into memories of war. You dont
want to hear about all of that.
Vannoni began seeking out VA benets
seven years ago, after his business went south
in the economic downturn. He was living on
unemployment and waiting to hear from the
Oakland VA on his PTSD claim.
He called the ofce a million times, but
was not able to talk to anyone about the status
of his claim.
You have to be really self-motivated to get
stuff done, said Vannoni.
He called Speiers office. Her District
Director Richard Steffen communicated
directly with the VA.
He called me back in an hour and said,
youre 100 percent, he said. After all these
years of waiting, I almost fell off my chair.
In July, he was rated at 100 percent disabled
for PTSD and received back pay.
I was elated, he said.
Then a sadness fell over Vannoni. He
thought of the 58,000 men left behind in the
Vietnam War, and the men who continue to
wait for their compensation.
I tell these guys just keep pushing, he
Speier helps get $3 million for vets
California has the worst record in the
nation of disposing of these claims in a time-
ly manner, said Speier.
In May, Speier and U.S.
Rep. Barbara Lee, D-
Oakland, held a VA x-it
meeting in San
Francisco. Hundreds of
veterans, including
Sonnenberg and Vannoni,
voiced their frustrations
with waiting for their
These are people who
have been involved in action we cant even
begin to imagine, said Speier.
She recently announced that $3 million in
compensation had been awarded to veterans
who attended her fix-it meeting,
Sonnenberg and Vannoni were among them.
Still, Speier worries about the rest of the
nations veterans who do not have congres-
sional advocates.
Were successful because were the
squeaky wheel, she said.
Three months ago, Speier signed a letter
along with many other members of Congress
urging the VA to resolve the backlog. She has
yet to get a response.
That to me is a stunning disclosure, she
said. That we dont have the clout to have the
attention of the secretary of the VA.
Flood of complex claims
Since 2000, the veteran population has
increased by 45 percent, said VA Western
Regional Director Willie Clark.
The Oakland Regional Ofce which
serves all Northern California veterans like
all VA ofces, has seen an inux of claims for
various reasons: the economic downturn, the
country being at war for a decade and VA
Secretary Eric Shinsekis simplication of the
PTSD claims process and adding of eligibili-
ties associated with Agent Orange for
Vietnam veterans.
On top of these factors, veterans are now
coming back with more complex disabilities.
The average claim is in excess of 12 condi-
tions, instead of one or two, said Clark.
Weve got this perfect storm, said Clark.
But thats not their problem, thats our prob-
The VA has set a goal of having zero claims
pending longer than 125 days by 2015, said
We are producing decisions every day,
said Oakland Regional Office Director
Douglas Bragg.
The Oakland Regional ofce is processing
about 2,000 claims per month, he said. Half of
all new claims coming into the Oakland ofce
are being brokered out to other ofces, he
said. Outsourcing new claims allows Oakland
to begin processing the thousands of claims in
the backlog.
We have seen some reductions since June
of last year, said Bragg, who moved to his
current position about a year ago. We have
been able to get our inventory down 10 to 12
Increasing efciency
Along with tackling the massive inux of
cases, the VA is enacting numerous initiatives
aimed at boosting efciency of the disability
claims process.
Last June, the Oakland Regional Ofce
was the rst ofce in the nation to put on a
refresher training for the entire staff.
It was significant, said Bragg.
Instructors were brought in and we were
able to cross-train veteran service representa-
On Feb. 11, Oakland will launch its elec-
tronic Veterans Benefits Management
System. All new claims after this date will be
input into the new paperless system.
These initiatives will equip the VA to deal
with a consistently larger claims load, said
Its not just a quick burst to tackle the
backlog, he said. We know were prepared
for the long haul.
The Oakland ofce has added 33 employ-
ees since August, and is looking to hire 13
more, said Bragg.
The directors said they have ample
resources to work through the claims backlog
by 2015.
Both Congress and the veteran communi-
ty have been very supportive of the ofce,
said Bragg.
Congress has granted VA budget increases
for the last three years in a row, said Clark.
But the increasing number of claims will
pose challenges.
We just have to be more efcient, he said.
We have a lot of dedicated people. Over half
the people in the Oakland ofce are veterans
Bragg and Clark, both veterans, have taken
on the responsibility of managing the back-
Any inefciencies are unacceptable, said
Bragg. But these are our problems. Theyve
served our country. They shouldnt come
back having to gure something else out.
Thats on us.
Rising military suicides
Sonnenberg said he has attempted suicide
twice since he got out of the military. If it
werent for Speier, he may not be alive today,
he said.
The Daily Journal asked Clark if he thought
the claims backlog was contributing to the
rise in military suicides.
The VA takes veterans suicidal conditions
into account during the claims process, he
said, adding that the VA provides excellent
outreach programs and hotlines.
We know [suicide] is a problem for our
service members, said Clark.
Veterans waiting more than 125 days on
disability claims can contact Speiers district
ofce at: (650) 342-0300.

His 49ers went on a surge of their

City ofcials took precautions to min-

bars to be careful with how much alco-

LOS ANGELES Roman Catholic
parishioners in the Los Angeles area
heard a letter from Archbishop Jose
Gomez in which he described newly
released les on clergy sex abuse as ter-
ribly sad and evil.
Church leaders read the archbishops
words at Sunday Mass across the Los
Angeles Archdiocese, which extends
into Ventura and Santa Barbara counties,
the Los Angeles Times reported
The letter, addressed to My brothers
and sisters in Christ, was made public
last week.
Gomez said the church needs to
acknowledge the terrible failure of its
handling of abuse cases.
At St. Charles Borromeo Catholic
Church in North Hollywood, parishioner
Eric Nielsen praised Gomez for address-
ing the issue in such a prominent way.
I take my hat off to the archbishop,
said Nielsen, 52. He got on the ball and
did what needed to be done.
But Nielsen told the Times he would
probably stop attending the church,
where hes worshipped since 1981,
because he was upset by the child abuse
Its a shame, he said.
On Thursday, Gomez stripped his
predecessor Cardinal Roger Mahony of
his administrative duties for failing to
take swift action against abusive priests.
In a letter posted on his personal blog
Friday, Mahony challenged Gomez for
publicly shaming him and said he devel-
oped policies to safeguard children after
taking over in 1985, despite being
unequipped to deal with the molester
priests he inherited.
Mahony had apologized two weeks
ago after another release of similar les
showed he and other top aides worked
behind the scenes to protect the church
from the growing scandal, keep offend-
ing clerics out of state and preventing
public disclosure of sex crimes commit-
ted by priests.
Gomezs rebuke and Mahonys public
response were unprecedented because
they revealed inghting between two
highly placed church leaders in a Roman
Catholic hierarchy that rarely break
ranks publicly, according to the Rev.
Thomas Doyle, a canon lawyer who
worked for the Vaticans embassy in
Washington, D.C.
Following a court order, the church
posted on its website tens of thousands
of pages of the previously secret person-
nel files of 122 priests accused of
molesting children.
In his letter, Gomez described the lat-
est records to be made public as brutal
and painful reading.
Letter on sex abuse read at churches
LOS ANGELES A defrocked
priest suspected of child molestation left
the Los Angeles Archdiocese to work for
the LA Unied School District, accord-
ing to a report.
Joseph Pina, 66, was let go from the
district over the weekend after his
employment was disclosed, the Los
Angeles Times said Sunday
( ).
LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy
told the newspaper that Pina did not
work with children in his job with the
nations second-largest school system.
Pinas name appeared in les released
recently by the archdiocese to comply
with a court order. His case was one of
many in which church ofcials protected
priests accused of abuse, the Times said.
School ofcials could not say when
Pina was hired. He was laid off from his
full-time district job last year, but returned
to work occasionally to organize events.
Deasy said the district already was look-
ing into the matter of Pinas hiring.
I nd it troubling, he said of the dis-
closures about the former clergyman.
And I also want to understand what
knowledge that we had of any back-
ground problems when hiring him, and I
dont yet know that.

ing bidding on this property lien, you
should understand that there are risks in-
volved in bidding at a trustee auction.
You will be bidding on a lien, not on a
property itself. Placing the highest bid at
a trustee auction does not automatically
entitle you to free and clear ownership of
the property. You should also be aware
that the lien being auctioned off may be a
junior lien. If you are the highest bidder
at the auction, you are or may be respon-
sible for paying off all liens senior to the
lien being auctioned off, before you can
receive clear title to the property. You
are encouraged to investigate the exis-
tence, priority, and size of outstanding
liens that may exist on this property by
contacting the county recorder's office or
a title insurance company, either of
which may charge you a fee for this infor-
mation. If you consult either of these re-
sources, you should be aware that the
lender may hold more than one mort-
gage or deed of trust on the property.
sale date shown on this notice of sale
may be postponed one or more times by
the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a
court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the
California Civil Code. The law requires
that information about trustee sale post-
ponements be made available to you and
to the public, as a courtesy to those not
present at the sale. If you wish to learn
whether your sale date has been post-
poned, and, if applicable, the resched-
uled time and date for the sale of this
property, you may call 1-800-281-8219
or visit this Internet Web site www.recon-, using the file number as-
signed to this case 12-0069834. Infor-
mation about postponements that are
very short in duration or that occur close
in time to the scheduled sale may not im-
mediately be reflected in the telephone
information or on the Internet Web site.
The best way to verify postponement in-
formation is to attend the scheduled sale.

The only ofce in California
to have the Non-Surgical
This method which includes computerized true disc
decompression is considered by many doctors to be
the most advanced and successful non-invasive
treatment of serious back, neck, leg or arm pain. This
procedure allows for a much higher success rate by
increasing hydration of your discs, exibility, relax-
ation of muscles and ligaments along with improving
muscle and core strength, balance and posture. This
results in a more effective and lasting solution to your
pain. There are no side effects and no recovery time
is required. This gentle and relaxing treatment has
proven to be effective even when drugs, epidurals,
traditional chiropractic, physical therapy and surgery
have failed The Crossroads Method has shown
dramatic results.
AHealth Center Dedicated to
Severe Disc
At Crossroads Health Center, Ive created an entire
facility dedicated to patients with severe disc condi-
tions that have not responded to traditional care. My
revolutionary, Crossroads Method, provides a very
high success rate to patients with serious back,
neck, leg and arm pain even when all else has
failed. This FDA cleared; non-surgical treatment
allows us to rehydrate your herniated or degenera-
tive disc(s) by reversing internal pressure and
enabling your disc(s) to heal from the inside out. We
succeed where other treatments have failed by
removing the pressure that is causing pain to your
disc(s) and nerves without drugs, injections, inva-
sive surgery or harmful side effects.
Patient Testimonials
Back Pain & Spasms Are Finally Gone
During the 1 1/2 years of having constant daily lower back pain
and spasms, I took anti-inammatory and pain medication, but
nothing helped lessen the pain. When an MRI showed that I had
two degenerative discs, I went through a series of lumbar epidu-
ral injections without success. The only thing that made the pain
and spasms go away was Spinal Decompression treatments at
Crossroads Health Center. Four years later and I am still pain-
Lisa Kilinski.
Back Golng At Age 94
I am 94 years old and I was suffering with awful pain due to a
herniated and degenerated disk. I nally came to Crossroads
Health Center and Dr. Ferrigno and staff helped take my pain
away. After nishing the program, I went out to play golf for the
rst time and I feel ne now, no pain and I thank Crossroads
Health Center for this wonderful treatment.
Masao Mori
I Only Wish I Came To You Sooner
My sincere thanks to all of you at Crossroads Health Center for
restoring me back to good health. When I came to Dr. Ferrigno
with numbness in my hand and arm and severe back pain, you
assured me that there was hope. Not only did you make that
happen, you also gave me back my energy and sense of well
being. Dr. Ferrigno and the entire staff have been warm and
welcoming without fail. I owe you much and thank you doesnt
begin to cover it.
