For a second time, county super-
visors tabled plans to increase
planning and building fees after
unincorporated residents demanded
they consider public input before
implementing a 5 percent change
nearly across the board.

pulled the agenda item at Tuesdays
meeting, saying he understood
that there had been a previous
commitment to meet with resi-
dents and that those meetings
should now hap-
pen before super-

County school districts are
seeking funds to help support new
Common Core State Standards
mainly through a $300,000 grant
from the Silicon Valley
The San Mateo Union High
School District would be the lead
educational entity for this collab-
orative grant with Santa Clara
County school districts to help
implement the new curriculum.
The funds would begin to cycle in
this coming school year and last
until the end of the 2015-16
school year. Its aim is to increase
student achievement, specically
those students of economically
disadvantaged backgrounds. The
grant would be focused on mathe-
matics training for students during
transition years from fth to sixth
grades, then from eighth to ninth
The new Common Core stan-
dards shift to more project-based
and team collaborative learning,
with less time spent on lectures
and more of an emphasis on stu-
dents using technology in class-
rooms. In doing so, ofcials say
the standards will do a better job
prepping students for college and
careers while replacing older stan-
dardized tests with new Smarter
Balance Assessments.
Since 1998, California school
districts spent a significant
amount of time preparing for
Standardized Testing and Report
testing, also known as STAR,
which was unpopular among some
for a variety of reasons.
The new tests are very differ-
ent, said Gary Waddell, deputy
superintendent of instruction for

SACRAMENTO Two Republican
lawmakers from the Central Valley
want the state auditor to review the
California High-Speed Rail
Authoritys moves to buy up land for
the $68 billion project.
Assemblymen Jim Patterson, R-
Fresno, and Frank Bigelow, R-
ONeals, submitted a request Tuesday
to the Joint Legislative Audit
Committee seeking an investigation
into the appraisal process, assessment
of land values and the role of private
contractors as the rail authority seeks
to acquire or seize 356 parcels for the
rst leg in the Central Valley.
The lawmakers say they want to
ensure the rail authority has policies
that allow landowners to appeal the
property values assessed to their land
and what safeguards are in place to
ensure fair and reasonable offers.
Our valleys farmland and citizen-
owned private property cant be
replaced, so we have to make sure we
get it right the rst time because there
is no going back, Bigelow said in a
news release.
The authority has begun making
offers to dozens of landowners in the
Central Valley as it seeks to start work
on the rst 30-mile leg of the project,
likely this fall. Officials expect to
sign a contract this month with a joint
venture hired to design and build the
line from Madera to Fresno, the rst
step toward starting construction.
Chief executive Jeff Morales has
previously said high-speed rail of-
cials are following the same procedure
used by the state Department of
Transportation to acquire land, includ-
ing allowing landowners to obtain
alternate appraisals at the states
expense before ling an appeal.

At about 5:50 p.m. on Saturday, officers
responded to a report of a man without
clothes on who had broken into a home in
the 800 block of Second Lane, South San
Francisco police Sgt. Bruce McPhillips
A preliminary investigation indicated
that Narayan had entered the home by
climbing through a garage window, police
He then allegedly picked up some money
and other small items in the home and
entered the main living area, where he
encountered a woman and her two young
children, McPhillips said.
Narayan allegedly grabbed the womans
arm and tried to get her to go with him into
another area of the home, McPhillips said.
When she refused, according to police,
he allegedly reached into his underwear and
acted like he was masturbating.
He then went into a room near the
garage, and the victim was able to lock the
door behind him and call police, according
to McPhillips.
Narayan was arrested and booked into
San Mateo County Jail, where he remains
in custody in lieu of $100,000 bail.
He is scheduled to return to court for a
preliminary hearing on Aug. 16.
Alleged pimp caught in FBI
crackdown pleads not guilty
A35-year-old man arrested last month in
San Bruno as part of a nationwide crack-
down on human traffick-
ing has pleaded not
guilty to pimping,
according to the San
Mateo County District
Attorneys Office.
Senhsu Yang, of Union
City, was arrested July
26 in an apartment where
undercover agents had
arranged a set-up date
with a suspected prostitute, Chief Deputy
District Attorney Karen Guidotti said.
Prosecutors allege that there were two
women in the apartment who were working
as prostitutes, and that Yang was suspected
of bringing customers there to have sex
with them.
Officers seized $1,000 in cash and
arrested Yang and the two women, accord-
ing to the district attorneys office.
Yang, who remains in custody on
$20,000 bail, entered a plea of not guilty
on Monday to one count of felony pimp-
ing, Guidotti said.
Yang was one of 17 suspected pimps
arrested in the Bay Area as part of
Operation Cross Country, a three-day
crackdown on human trafficking and pros-
titution that was carried out in 76 U.S.
cities between July 24 and July 26, accord-
ing to the FBI.
The sting resulted in the rescue of 105
children and the arrest of 150 pimps
Yang is due back in court for a prelimi-
nary hearing on Nov. 12.

San Mateo County will accelerate its pay-
ing down of a near-billion dollar unfunded
pension liability with a $50 million kickoff
payment followed by $90 million over the
following nine years.
The Board of Supervisors Tuesday unani-
mously agreed to direct staff to work with
the San Mateo County Employees
Retirement Association on a plan estimated
to achieve 90 percent of its funding in seven
years and 100 percent by scal year 2023-
24. The fund is currently 72 percent funded
with annual costs of approximately $150
million. The preferred payment plan recom-
mended by County Manager John Maltbie
will drop the countys annual required con-
tribution by $13 million by 2023-24 and
approximately $16 million by scal year
Maltbie said the county has made signi-
cant progress in addressing the liability the
last two years but a great deal more work
needs to be done to repair the damage done
by the Great Recession.
The lump sum and annual payments will
come from a combination of department
reserves and excess property taxes known
as Educational Revenue Augmentation
Funds. The county expects to use a minimum
of $40 million in ERAF the rst year and $5
million annually after. The county will also
transfer 25 percent of its operating depart-
ment reserves. The rst payment is sched-
uled for spring 2014 after the county reim-
burses itself from bond
proceeds for expenses
from the new jail.
The aggressive finan-
cial plan assumes
SamCERA achieves its
7.5 percent earnings tar-
get each year but includes
the caveat that the county
can make a smaller con-
tribution when other
funding priorities take precedence or the
general fund reserve falls below 15 percent.
Reserves are currently 16.6 percent.
I think this is very prudent, said
Supervisor Adrienne Tissier.
Supervisor Dave Pine echoed the senti-
ment and lauded the contribution exibility
for unknowns like the loss of ERAF money.
He also suggested the countys path could be
one for other governments saddled with
pension challenges.
We can really lead the way and provide
others with a model of scal responsibili-
t y, he said.
Pine originally suggested using Measure
A half-cent sales tax money to help pay
down the liability which eventually led to
the ve funding options presented yester-
day. The alternatives dont call for directly
using the tax revenue but both will run a 10-
year course which Maltbie said lets the
county continue programs funded by the tax
if voters do not reauthorize Measure A.

Negotiators for BART and unions repre-
senting about 2,400 employees didnt meet
yesterday and instead prepared for a hearing
that a fact-nding panel appointed by Gov.
Jerry Brown will hold today.
BART workers, who previously went on
strike for four-and-a-half days at the begin-
ning of July, gave notice late last week that
they would go on strike again Monday morn-
ing if a contract agreement hadnt been
reached but Brown intervened late Sunday
night by appointing the board to investigate
the labor dispute.
The three-person panel, which is headed
by Jacob Appelsmith, a senior advisor to
Brown who also is
Director of the Alcoholic
Beverage Control
Department, will report
back to Brown by Sunday.
The other members of
the board are Robert
Balgenorth, the president
emeritus of the State
Building and
Construction Trades
Council of California, and Micki Callahan,
San Franciscos human resources director.
Appelsmith said in a letter to BARTand its
labor unions that he and Brown urge all par-
ties to continue with the negotiations
process even as the fact-nding is conduct-
The convening of the board should not
delay negotiations in any way, Appelsmith
However, BART and leaders of Service
Employees International Union Local 1021,
which represents 1,430 mechanics, custodi-
ans and clerical workers, and Amalgamated
Transit Union Local 1555, which represents
945 station agents, train operators and cleri-
cal workers, havent met since Brown inter-
vened Sunday night.
BARTspokeswoman Alicia Trost and SEIU
Local 1021 negotiator Des Patten both said
that all the parties have been busy gathering
information for the panels hearing on
Wednesday, which is expected to be lengthy.
Patten and Trost said talks are expected to
resume on Thursday.
Patten said, We expect them to continue
through Sunday night.
He said if an agreement isnt reached by
Sunday night, its possible that employees
could go on strike next Monday.
However, in all previous instances in
which governors have intervened in BART
labor disputes and called for a fact-nding
process they have wound up ordering a 60-
day cooling off period.
Brown intervened after BARTs board of
directors sent him a letter on Sunday asking
for a cooling-off period.
The boards request was a reversal as it pre-
viously had not asked for a cooling off peri-
od because if there had to be a strike it would
be better to have one in the summer, when
there are fewer passengers than in the fall.

The gangmember accused of attacking
her cellmate over hair ties while awaiting
trial for the attempted murder of a San
Bruno police officer settled both cases for
six years in prison.
Mickie Lei Gardiner, 23, was originally
charged with attempted murder in the first
case but agreed to plea no contest to
assault with a deadly weapon in return for
the immediate six-year term and registra-
tion as a gang offender. She also pleaded
no contest to another count of assault for
the jail incident.
Gardiner was not physically involved in
the May 26, 2012 shooting at a peace
officer but acted as a conduit between the
imprisoned gangmem-
ber who ordered the hit
on a rival and the three
gangmembers now
charged with carrying
out the plan. The other
defendants shot at the
officer while on their
way to perform the exe-
cution of the rival gang-
On July 6, while in
custody at the jail, prosecutors said
Gardiner accused her cellmate of stealing a
hair tie and punched the woman 13 times
in the face.
In the underlying case, Daniel Garcia,
25, Jordy Diego Bernal, 19, and Michael
Apolinario, 27, were indicted on charges
of attempted murder on a peace officer,
conspiracy to commit murder, being a
gangmember and assault with a deadly
weapon. Garcia is also charged with car
theft, recklessly evading a police officer
and personally discharging a firearm.
They have pleaded not guilty.
Another suspect, Andrew Delgadillo,
24, is also accused of helping Gardiner
deliver the message and is similarly
charged as the other defendants. All four
will stand trial Oct. 28.
The prison inmate who allegedly ordered
the hit has not been charged.
The three others, all documented gang-
members, were intercepted after San Bruno
police responded to calls of suspicious
individuals near Belle Air Elementary
School just before 2 a.m. and an officer
gave chase to the vehicle after it went
through a stop sign. Garcia allegedly
pulled a gun and fired two rounds which the
officer returned although neither were hit.
Police found Apolinario and Bernal hiding
nearby and arrested Garcia later that
evening. The next day, a 9-year-old boy
playing with his sister in the backyard
found the gun and asked his mother if he
could play with it.

STOCKTON Californias controller

poor accounting system and poor decisions
led to its bankruptcy.
An 85-page audit released Monday by

curb spending and missed out on millions

Chiang says the leadership wasnt cor-

Stockton led for bankruptcy last year
when it faced nearly $1 billion in debt.
Before Detroit, it was the largest city in

PHOENIX Buoyed by an improving
housing market, President Barack Obama
on Tuesday proposed a broad overhaul of the
nations mortgage nance system, includ-
ing winding down government-backed
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He declared
that taxpayers should never again be left
holding the bag for the mortgage giants
bad bets.
Obama outlined his proposals in
Phoenix, the once foreclosure-riddled city
at the epicenter of the nations housing cri-
sis. The housing market in Phoenix, as well
as in many other parts of the country, has
rebounded robustly, with prices in the
southwestern city up 66 percent from the
low point in 2011.
Despite the nationwide gains, the presi-
dent said sweeping housing reforms are still
needed to ensure that a rejuvenated market
doesnt simply re-inate the housing bub-
ble. The cornerstone of that effort is wind-
ing down Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, a
proposal with bipartisan support in the
For too long, these companies were
allowed to make big prots buying mort-
gages, knowing that if their bets went bad,
taxpayers would be left holding the bag,
Obama told a crowd of more than 2,000 at
an area high school. He spoke following a
tour of a construction company that has
been able to hire hundreds of new workers as
a result of the regions housing comeback.
While the president has previously
endorsed overhauling Fannie and Freddie,
his remarks Tuesday marked the rst time he
outlined his specic proposals for doing
The president wants to replace Fannie and
Freddie with a system that would put the pri-
vate sector, not the government, primarily
at risk for loans. The government would
still be involved, both in oversight and as a
last-resort loan guarantor.
Obama is also seeking guarantees that a
private sector-led mortgage nance system
would still ensure wide homeowner access
to popular 30-year mortgages at xed rates.
Making light of criticism from
Republicans who have cast him as a big-
spending liberal, Obama joked that his
calls for deeper private sector involvement
must sound confusing to the folks who call
me a socialist.
Obamas mortgage reform priorities are
largely in line with a Senate measure shep-
herded by Republican Sen. Bob Corker of
Tennessee and Democratic Sen. Mark
Warner of Virginia that would wind down
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac within ve
years. Corker said Obamas remarks were a
sign of real and growing momentum behind
efforts to shutter the mortgage giants.
Once ourishing, Fannie and Freddie were
bailed out in 2008 by a $187 billion tax-
payer-backed bailout. The two enterprises
dont make loans directly, but buy mort-
gages from lenders, package them as bonds,
guarantee them against default and sell them
to investors.

ATLANTA For many years, doctors
have been wringing their hands as more
and more U.S. children grew fat. Now, that
may be changing, with the first evidence
of a national decline in childhood obesity.
In 18 states, there were at least slight
drops in obesity for low-income
preschoolers, health officials said
After decades on the rise, childhood obe-
sity rates recently have essentially been
flat. A few places Philadelphia, New
York City and Mississippi reported
improvements in the last couple of years.
But the report from the Centers for Disease
and Control Prevention shows signs of
wider-ranging progress.
Now, for the first time, were seeing a
significant decrease in childhood obesity
nationally, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, CDC
But rates are still too high, he added. One
in 8 preschoolers is obese in the United
States, and its even more common in
black and Hispanic kids.
Its not like were out of the woods,
he said during a conference call with
reporters Tuesday.
Obesity continues to be one of the
nations leading public health problems
health officials call it a longstanding epi-
demic. A third of U.S. children and teens
and more than two-thirds of adults are
obese or overweight. Some hope the report
marks a turning point.
I really do think this is a pivotal
moment, said Sam Kass, executive direc-
tor of a White House initiative to reduce
childhood obesity.
Preschoolers who are overweight or
obese are five times more likely than other
children to be heavy as adults, which
means greater risks of high cholesterol,
high blood sugar, asthma and even mental
health problems.
Tuesdays study used height and weight
measurements from nearly 12 million low-
income children in 40 states. The data was
collected from 2008 through 2011.
Most of the children ages 2 to 4 were
enrolled in the federal Women, Infants and
Children (WIC) program which provides
food vouchers and other services.
Its harder to get national data on
preschoolers of more affluent families, so
its not clear if the trend applies to all
young children. But experts note that low-
income kids tend to be heavier.
If youre going to look at the problem
of obesity early in childhood, the group at
highest risk are low-income kids. Thats
what makes this data so valuable for under-
standing trends in this major public health
problem, said Dr. Matthew Davis, a
University of Michigan researcher who
tracks health policy and childrens health
The biggest declines were in Florida,
Georgia, Missouri, New Jersey and South
Dakota. Each saw their obesity numbers
fall at least 1 percentage point.

Former President George W. Bush success-
fully underwent a heart procedure in Dallas
on Tuesday after doctors discovered a block-
age in an artery during his annual physical,
Bush spokesman Freddy Ford said.
At the recommendation of his doctors,
President Bush agreed to
have a stent placed to
open the blockage, Ford
said. The procedure was
performed successfully
this morning, without
complication, at Texas
Health Presbyterian
Bush, 67, was expect-
ed to be discharged Wednesday and resume
his normal schedule the following day.
The blockage was discovered Monday dur-
ing Bushs physical at the Cooper Clinic in
Dallas, where the nations 43rd president
Bush was described as being in high spir-
its and eager to return home.
He is grateful to the skilled medical pro-
fessionals who have cared for him, Ford
said. He thanks his family, friends, and fel-
low citizens for their prayers and well wish-
es. And he encourages us all to get our regu-
lar check-ups.
Stents are mesh scaffoldings that prop
open arteries typically clogged by years of
quiet cholesterol buildup. About half a mil-
lion people have stents inserted in the U.S.
each year, generally involving an overnight
stay in the hospital.

Delta water export
scheme (water bond)
Gov. Brown is intense in his sup-
port for diverting precious water from
the Sacramento River around the
Delta using two immense tunnels.
Why? Because the water will be used
to support huge agribusinesses in
Southern California, for fracking, and
to create another avenue for rich peo-
ple to make more money through the
Kern County Water Bank.
To pay for his tunnels, Gov. Brown
will need to oat a bond measure that
we, the taxpayers and rate payers,
will have to fund if passed.
There are far more reasonable and
cost effective alternatives to the tun-
nels that would improve water supply
security, provide more jobs, create
additional water supplies and restore
the Delta.
Our water supply is already oversub-
scribed. We dont need the waste of
these tunnels and the further destruc-
tion of the Delta, from which many in
the Bay Area get their water. Any
water bond package that includes
these tunnels should be rejected by
our legislators, and if they cant
muster the courage to vote no, the
voters should.

Spiritually poor
In her July 31 column Spiritually
poor? Dorothy Dimitre lamented
about the Prince of Cambridge doll
and its excessive cost. I agree but
this is nothing new in a free market
environment. You referred to this pro-
duction as the epitome of oppor-
tunism deliberately created to
make a few quick bucks. This is also
nothing new but you, like every free
citizen, are entitled to your thoughts
and opinions.
Where I take exception to this col-
umn, Ms. Dimitre, is your implica-
tion that the tea party types are all
for spending without any thought or
concern for the less fortunate.
Comments like these are uncalled for,
inaccurate and very, very divisive.
Democrats are compassionate and
Republicans dont care. This is a
gross generalization and most fair-
minded people know it. I think it is
important for all of us to grow
together and do what you can to help.
Pointing ngers and mean-spirited
generalizations accomplish nothing.

The trouble with the tea party
Christopher Conway makes a spir-
ited defense of the tea party in his
Aug. 6 letter Enough is enough. His
letters are less strident and thoughtful
than many representatives of the tea
party. His characterization of the tea
party is incomplete. They stand for
limited government, free markets and
personal responsibility ... true. Left
out was support for divisive social
issues that has soured the American
people. All polls show tea party sup-
port waning. The tea party got away
from their strength, scal issues and
has become a right wing mouth piece
for opposition to immigration
reform, opposition to gay marriage
and a host of social issues that have
no place in a movement purportedly
to be about scal issues. Limited gov-
ernment? The kind that decides
whether you can marry the person you
love based on sex?
An ABC/Washington Post poll said
50 percent of people say the more
they know about the tea party, the
less they like it compared to about
half of that (27 percent) that say the
more they hear, the more they like.
Thats just awful. If the tea party
pooh poohs this trend, then fantas-
tic. If in opposition, you want
Napoleon at Waterloo telling his
troops dont worry about Wellington,
he cant general.
Mr. Conway has a very short mem-
ory if he forgot about the abjectly
racist signs at the early tea party ral-
lies during the election. Thats not to
say all, or even a majority are. Abig
redneck factor is there, lets not pre-
tend otherwise. Oh, I have no use for
the CNBC race hustlers and victims
either. I am an independent. The tea
party would be well advised to listen
and take to heart the many legitimate
criticisms of the tea party or ignore
them at their peril and ultimately
their irrelevance.

he Belmont-Redwood Shores
Little League 11-12 team is
tearing it up in the Western
Regional tournament in San
Bernardino. Its record is 3-0 and it has
one rst round game left today. It may
not need a win today to advance to the
seminals Friday, but we suspect the
team will notch a 4-0 record in this
rst round since it has been dominat-
ing so far. If it advances to the semi-
nal Friday and wins, the nal is
Saturday. The winner of that game will
head to South Williamsport, Penn. to
compete in the Little League World
Series against teams from all over the
Similar to how Petalumas Little
League team caught re last year
among the hoi polloi during its run
deep into the World Series tournament
back East, the bandwagon for this
Belmont-Redwood Shores team is get-
ting crowded. And thats a good thing.
Just when Major League Baseball is
announcing suspensions because of
performance-enhancing drugs, its
refreshing to follow a young team of
local boys playing the game the way
it is meant to be played with pas-
sion, teamwork and positive energy.
Besides, theyre local. So if you are
from Belmont, Redwood Shores, San
Carlos, San Mateo or any other
Peninsula city, we can all claim a cer-
tain amount of allegiance to this team
as they shut down team after team in
the Western Regionals. The winner of
the Western Regionals will be one of
16 teams eight national, eight
international that qualies for the
Little League World Series that begins
Aug. 15. At this point, even if they
fall short in the seminals or nals,
theyve reached a success of which to
be proud. And that kind of local pride
is always a good thing. If they
advance to the Williamsport tourna-
ment, even better. And all the way?
Whichever way it ends, its been a
tremendous honor to follow the team
so far as they have provided us with a
pure example of how baseball is
meant to be played. We wish them the
best of luck.
Our own boys of summer Better late than never!
he quality of parental love and care we give
our children is determined by the kind of care
we ourselves received, especially in the early
years of life. It is from our mothers (or primary caregiver)
that we learn to nurture; it is from having been loved that
we have stored up love to give. Joseph Rosner, Ph.D.,
Myths of Child
Because I was raised in
a stoic German family
that didnt give out hugs
and kisses, it took me a
while to get used to my
husbands Greek rela-
tives who dispensed
hugs and a smooch on
the cheek whenever we
got together. There was
also a period of adjust-
ment at Greek family
dinners when it seemed
like everyone would be
talking at once. In my
childhood home, the
only one who ponticat-
ed at dinner was Father. The rest of us were to be seen and
not heard. We certainly were not demonstrative.
We basically spent our childhood trying to avoid being
criticized or having our legs switched by a substantial
twig from the plum tree, so we stayed out of the way as
much as possible, including when we had to perform one
of the many chores we were assigned. But never a Thank
you for a job well done or a hug to let us know we were
valued and appreciated. This was supposed to build charac-
So when I became a mother, I had only the example
from my youth to emulate. And one of the things that I
have regretted greatly about my years of young mother-
hood is that I didnt hug my kids enough. I did manage to
break the spell somewhat since those precious little
babies and children certainly brought out whatever cud-
dling instinct was there. And the Greek relatives were
nearby to emulate. Fortunately, I soon learned that sincere
and appropriate hugging is very benecial. Enjoying the
love and unconditional acceptance that hugs can commu-
nicate, children thrive and ourish physically, emotional-
ly and spiritually.
Too bad Wayne Dyer wasnt around then. As he wrote
about holding, kissing and hugging children: They need
to feel loved, really loved a lot, in their young lives If
you have trouble with this, then do it anyway and remind
yourself that it is good for both of you.
Asincere hug can communicate many things, such as,
Good to see you again! I think you are wonderful! I under-
stand. I am supporting you. You are a valuable person. I
feel good about myself, or maybe, This is my tradi-
tion. M. Scott Peck, MD, author of The Road Less
Traveled wrote; The feeling of being valuable is
essential to mental health and is the cornerstone of self-
discipline. It is a direct product of parental love. Such a
conviction must be gained in childhood: it is extremely
difcult to acquire it during adulthood. Conversely, when
children have learned through the love of their parents to
feel valuable, it is almost impossible for the vicissitudes
of adulthood to destroy their spirit.
The father of a 3-year-old once asked me, What do I do
when I feel like slapping my kid? I offered, Try to under-
stand his turmoil. Try to see him as a small child who is
often unable to control his impulses and who needs to
experience your compassion and empathy instead of more
pain and distancing. Because, if a person is empathetic at
all, he will nd that behind all that screaming, the stub-
bornness, the most vile words he can muster, there is
always a reason. He might be hungry, or tired, in pain,
coming down with something, feeling misunderstood or
sad, at the end of his endurance, suffering from a lack of
parental guidance or just small and helpless in controlling
himself. Then you might try hugging him instead.
Not only children, but all of us benet greatly if we
have someone close to us who is there for us even in
our less-than-wonderful moments. This person will sup-
port us through thick and thin, not for how we can full l
their expectations, but because we are important to them.
This contributes to nourishing the spirit and helps build
the self-condence necessary for a rewarding and produc-
tive life. Of course, as adults, we must be willing to return
the favor. Hugs can communicate our willingness to try to
understand and to be supportive at any age.
Once I saw a bumper sticker that read, Huggers live
longer. Well, who knows if there have been any scientif-
ic studies to conrm that, but huggers certainly live bet-
ter. And children who receive hugs are very fortunate
because, as Lois Weiss wrote in Love Talk: If we dont
hear the language of love as children, we cant repeat it.

Jeff Bezos is revered as one of the brightest
minds in corporate America, but even he is
still puzzling over how to reverse the nan-
cial slide threatening The Washington Post
and other major U.S. newspapers.
Nevertheless, Bezos is determined to face
the challenge, raising hope that his $250
million purchase of The Washington Post
announced Monday will provide the news-
paper industry a template for making the
leap from the printed page to digital
The marriage between the newspaper
industry and technology
has never been consum-
mated, but it could hap-
pen at The Washington
Post now, said media
analyst Ken Doctor of
Outsell Inc.
Although Bezos
bought The Post with his
own money, most
experts believe he is
likely to tether the newspaper to Inc.s products. He might also
infuse the newspaper with some of the cus-
tomer-rst concepts that helped turn the
Seattle company from an online book store
into a multi-dimensional business that sells
a multitude of merchandise and runs data
centers that power other websites around
the world.
Just having his brain in the room will
force people to confront digital in a way
they havent before, predicted Jerry
Ceppos, a former newspaper editor who is
now dean of mass communications at
Louisiana State University.
Bezos, 49, made it clear that he has no
magic formula for turning The Post around.
The newspaper is the anchor of a division
that lost $54 million at The Washington
Post Co. last year while generating revenue
of $582 million 39 percent less than it
did in 2005.
There is no map, and charting a path
ahead will not be easy, Bezos wrote in a
Monday letter sent to Post employees after
his surprise acquisition was announced. We
will need to invent, which means we will
need to experiment.
According to an Amazon spokesman,
Bezos wasnt available to be interviewed
Tuesday about his plans for the Post.
Bezos purchase of The Post makes him
the latest billionaire to funnel some of his
money into the ailing newspaper industry.
Berkshire Hathaway Inc. CEO Warren
Buffett has assembled a portfolio of more
than 30 small and medium-sized newspapers

recently agreed to pay $70 million for his
hometown newspaper, The Boston Globe.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. The auto
industry says people under 34 are grad-
ually starting to buy cars again as their
economic circumstances improve.
After the Great Recession, sales of
cars to young people dropped signi-
cantly. Fewer of them even bothered to
get drivers licenses. Some experts sur-
mised that the group lost interest in
cars because of the prevalence of
social media.
Data presented at a big industry con-
ference in Northern Michigan on
Tuesday show that young cars buyers
are making a slow, if uneven, return to
the market.
People age 18 to 34 accounted for
more than 14 percent of the U.S. new
car market just ve years ago, but that
plunged to 10.5 percent in 2011, to
according to registration data collected
by the Polk auto research rm. The g-
ure grew to 12.3 percent last year.
Licensing rates led some industry
analysts to conclude that young peo-
ple, who meet constantly on Facebook
and other social media, have less need
to travel and arent interested in buy-
ing cars even when they grow older.
In 1984, nearly 80 percent of people
ages 16-24 had drivers licenses, but
that fell to only 68 percent in 2010. In
the next-oldest demographic group,
25- to 34-year-olds, 95 percent had
licenses in 1984, but that dropped to
88 percent in 2010.
But industry executives at Tuesdays
conference had a different take.

WASHINGTON A sharp decline in the trade decit
with other nations suggests the U.S. economy grew this
spring at a faster pace than previously estimated, helped
by a record level of exports.
The Commerce Department said Tuesday that the U.S.
trade gap fell more than 22 percent in June from May to
$34.2 billion. Thats lowest level since October 2009.
American companies shipped more aircraft engines,
telecommunications equipment, heavy machinery and
farm goods. As a result, exports rose 2.2 percent to an all-
time high of $191.2 billion.

The San Bruno Storm U16 fastpitch soft-
ball captured the 37-team, Western National
B tournament over the weekend in San
Diego, going a perfect 8-0.
It is the Storms second U16 Western
National title in the last three years, having
won the championship in 2010. Last year,
this team nished fourth.
It was amazing to see things come
together really quickly, said San Bruno
manager Chris Jordan, who led the team to a
38-3-1 record this summer.
The Storm had to go through 2012 cham-
pion San Ramon Stompers to win the title.
After going 2-0 in pool play and 4-0
through the double-elimination bracket,
San Bruno faced off against San Ramon for
the rst time, beating it 2-0.
The two met again in the championship
game, with San Bruno scoring three runs in
the top of the seventh and then held on for a
10-7 win to capture the crown.
It was pretty crazy, Jordan said. It was
denitely a wild game.
San Bruno held a 7-4 lead, but San Ramon
scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth
to tie the game. The Stompers had a chance
to take the lead, but the go-ahead run was cut
down at the plate when left elder Alana

MIAMI The Florida High School
Athletic Association will review its poli-
cies on performance-enhancing drugs fol-
lowing an allegation that its athletes were
among the customers of the shuttered clinic
at the center of the baseball scandal.
The FHSAA said it has no proof to sub-
stantiate the claims of former Biogenesis
employee Porter Fischer, who has told The
Associated Press and other media outlets in
recent days that he saw the clinics operator
give PEDs to high school players.
But, as the state association sees it, even
the mere suggestion that youngsters are
involved with PEDs is reason enough to act.
Its an issue that we have to address head-
on, said Florida Sen. Bill Monford, a for-
mer school principal and superintendent.
And quite frankly, in my opinion, this is
not a nger-pointing exercise. Its truly an
acknowledgment that weve got a problem
and we also have a responsibility to address
this issue. And we have to address it with
vigor because if we dont, the lives of many
of our student-athletes ... can be so nega-
tively impacted.
The announcement came one day after
Major League Baseball disciplined 13 play-
ers, including Alex Rodriguez of the New
York Yankees, for having ties to
Biogenesis, a clinic accused of distributing
banned performance enhancers.
Fischer has said that the clinics operator,

SANTA CLARA As devastated
as Ian Williams felt two years ago
when he went undrafted out of Notre
Dame, he can now look back on that
moment and realize how much the
rejection meant to his career.
He landed with the San Francisco
49ers, and is the leading candidate
to win the starting nose tackle job
for the NFC champions as he begins
his third NFLseason.
It hurt, but looking back at it, it
was probably the best situation that
could have ever happened,
Williams said after a recent practice.
I was a young kid, expecting this,
expecting that. It kind of put me
back to my place, and coming here
and getting back to work really pro-
pelled me to where I am now.
I lost sight
of the goal that I
set. Drastic
things usually
get you back on
The expecta-
tions for
Williams are
high heading
into the teams
exhibition opener Thursday night at
home in Candlestick Park against
Peyton Manning and the Denver
San Francisco lost both its starter
and backup at the position to free
agency this spring, leaving
Williams and veteran newcomer
lineman Glenn Dorsey to push each
other in training camp yet
Williams has more experience.
Dorsey could spend some time at
defensive end, too.
Williams prepared himself for
this opportunity by losing 25
pounds from his previous playing
weight during the offseason, bring-
ing him down to 305 and right
where he hopes to stay this season.
Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio
has noticed an improvement in
Williams agility and quick step off
the snap.
I can feel a great difference. We
havent been in a game yet, but just
being out in practice and working
out here just really got me ready and
going against our O-line the past
two years has really gotten me ready
for what I have in front of me,
Williams said. Toward the end of
the season it gets cold out here and
its hard to sweat and youre still eat-
ing two or three times a day, so its
hard to lose weight. Then the offsea-
son came and I worked hard, I stayed
To this day, Fangio cant point to
exactly why Williams wasnt draft-
ed. Perhaps his 6-foot-1 height
caused NFLteams to shy away.
Every year you see that happen.
Why wasnt he drafted at least in the
seventh round the year he came out?
I dont know, Fangio said. I dont
know if there were some questions
about his work habits. Obviously,
hes on the short side as most D-
linemen go. I dont have a good
answer for you there. Trust me, he
should have been drafted.
Williams, with shoulder-length
braids, has played in four games
total. That hasnt kept the 49ers
from believing he is ready to take
on a starting role.
And Williams always stayed
upbeat as he paid his dues buried on
the depth chart and regularly inac-
tive for game days during his rst
two seasons.
It was vital to where I am right
now, he said. Just coming into a
good situation and having a veteran
crew around me and guys who really
took me under their wing and taught
me even though I was coming in to
compete at the position, I really
came into a great situation.
In March, that situation became
even better when Williams received
a two-year contract extension carry-
ing him through the 2015 season.
That vote of condence meant a
lot to Williams, who has seven
career tackles as he approaches his
24th birthday later this month.
I really wasnt worried about get-
ting paid for the contact. It just
showed me that I had to get back to
work and work even harder, he said.

STANFORD Thirty years after
he left school, Stanford football is
retiring John Elways No. 7 jer-
The former Cardinal quarterback
and No. 1 overall pick of the 1983
NFL draft will have his jersey
retired during halftime of
Stanfords home game against
Oregon on Nov. 7. Elway, now the
executive vice president of the
Denver Broncos, will be only the
third player to have his jersey
enshrined by the school, joining
Ernie Nevers ( No. 1) and Jim
Plunkett (No. 16).
I am extremely humbled that
Stanford has chosen to recognize
me in this very special way,
Elway said in a statement released
by the university. Its a tremen-
dous honor to join Cardinal leg-
ends Ernie Nevers and Jim
Plunkett with this distinction.
Being a student-athlete at Stanford
and earning my degree from the
school are two things I take the
utmost pride in accomplishing.
Without question, my four
years at Stanford played an inte-
gral role in who I am and any suc-
cess Ive had. In particular, my
teammates and coaches deserve so
much credit for making me better,
both on and off the eld. I will
always cherish my time on campus
as well as the friendships from
Stanford that have lasted more
than 30 years. I look forward to
returning for this occasion and
celebrating with the great Cardinal
Wide receiver Ty Montgomery
and defensive end Aziz Shittu both
wear No. 7 currently. They will be
the last to wear that jersey at
Elway threw for 9,349 yards and
77 touchdowns while completing
62 percent of his passes at
Stanford. He held nearly every
major passing record most of
them since shattered by Andrew
Luck when he left school.
Elway still owns the single-game
record with six touchdown passes
in a 54-13 win against Oregon
State on Nov. 1, 1980.
Elway was the Pac-10
Conference Player of the Year in
1980 and 1982, when he also was
a consensus All-American. After
the Cardinal lost at rival
California on the infamous lateral
play in his nal collegiate game,
Elway nished second to Herschel
Walker in the 1982 Heisman
Trophy voting.
The Baltimore Colts drafted
Elway with the top pick in the
1983 draft and traded him to
Denver, where he led the Broncos
to ve Super Bowl appearances
and two titles. He was inducted
into the College Football Hall of
Fame in 2000 and the Pro Football
Hall of Fame in 2004.
Today is an exciting day for
Stanford football, and you cant
talk about Stanford football with-
out talking about John Elway,
said third-year Cardinal coach
David Shaw. Like Frankie Albert
and Jim Plunkett before him,
Johns Elways greatness set the
standard for quarterback play for a
generation of athletes.

Have you ever
attended a funeral
or memorial service
and felt ill-at-ease,
uncomfortable or
awkward when
talking to the family
of the deceased? Have you ever stumbled
through your words and condolences
because you just didnt know what to say or
how to say it? Have you even decided to not
approach the family for fear of saying the
wrong thing or making a fool of yourself? If
so you are not alone. Many people in this
situation want to provide some kind of
comfort to the immediate family, but just
dont have the verbal tools to do so in an
assuring manner.
Learning Funeral Etiquette can be
useful. Using the right words at the right
time is an appropriate way to show that you
care, and in situations like this can be of
great help when provided correctly.
Standard condolences such as I am sorry
for your loss have become routine and
generic. A personalized phrase can be
welcomed such as John touched many
lives or I will miss John. DO NOT ask
the cause of death, offer advice or make
comments that would diminish the
importance of the loss such as Oh, youre
young and can marry again.
Other ways to demonstrate your support
include: 1. Listening. The family may feel
the need to express their anxiety, and giving
them that opportunity can be therapeutic; 2.
An embrace. This can show that you care
without the need for words; 3. Offering your
services. This shows the family that you are
willing to give extra time for them: Please
let me know if there is anything I can do to
help (be prepared to act if needed).
Even if you dont feel confident in
approaching the family there are other ways
to show that you care: 1. Attending the
funeral and signing the Memorial Book will
show the family that you took the time to be
there in support; 2. Dressing appropriately
for the funeral will demonstrate your efforts
to prepare for this special occasion (dark
colors are no longer a requisite for funerals,
but dressing in a coat, tie, dress or other
attire that youd wear to any special event
are considered a way of showing you care);
3. In certain cases friends are invited to
stand up and offer BRIEF personal feelings.
Prior to the funeral write a few key notes
and reflections which will help you organize
your thoughts. Even if there is no
opportunity to speak before a group you
may have a chance to offer your thoughts to
the family following the ceremony; 4. A
personalized card or note will help you
arrange your words better and can be kept
by the family. If you dont have their
mailing address you can send your envelope
to the funeral home and they will forward it
to the next of kin; 5. Providing flowers is a
long time tradition, or making a charitable
donation in the deceaseds memory will give
the family a strong sense of your regards; 6.
If appropriate a brief phone call can show
your immediate concern, but generally this
should be avoided to give the family the
privacy they may need.
If you ever wish to discuss cremation,
funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to
call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF
THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650)

NEWYORK Facebook friends. Transcripts
of BlackBerry instant messages. Records of
Major League Baseballs investigators used
an arsenal of high-tech tools to collect the evi-
dence that persuaded a dozen players to accept
50-game suspensions this week for their ties to
the Biogenesis clinic.
And when it came time to meet with the play-
ersassociation, they ashed some of their doc-
umentary proof. While there was not enough
time for the union to thoroughly examine what
baseball had collected, there was little doubt
there was an electronic trail, one of the people
familiar with the meetings said. The person
spoke on condition of anonymity because no
public statements were authorized.
It both complicates things and adds a layer
of proof that certainly wasnt available many
years ago, union general counsel David Prouty
said Tuesday.
Alex Rodriguez, the lone holdout against a
suspension, faces an arbitration hearing in
coming months that likely will include such
evidence. The New York Yankees third baseman
was suspended for 211 games from Thursday
through the 2014 season, though he is allowed
to play until a decision is issued by arbitrator
Fredric Horowitz, which is not expected until at
least November.
Until now, nearly all suspensions under
MLBs drug program resulted from positive drug
tests. The Biogenesis probe revealed players
were using PEDs without detection.
To catch the most sophisticated intentional
fraudsters, you have to use non-analytical
means, which is another reason why baseballs
effort here is such a pivotal moment for the anti-
doping ght, said Travis Tygart, chief execu-
tive ofce of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.
MLB ofcials would not speak for attribution
about its investigation. The league used about
30 people full time in its fact-gathering, anoth-
er person familiar with the process said Tuesday,
also on condition of anonymity because no
statements were authorized.
The probe was sparked in January when the
Miami New Times published documents linking
players to the clinic and accused it of distribut-
ing banned performance-enhancing drugs.
Technology has evolved since 2003, when
federal agents raided the Bay Area Laboratory
Co-Operative in Burlingame, sparking an
investigation that eventually led to criminal
convictions of Barry Bonds, track star Marion
Jones, cyclist Tammy Thomas and NFLlineman
Dana Stubbleeld.
And when former Sen. George Mitchell issued
his report on drugs in baseball four years later,
he recommended baseball start an investiga-
tions department. Dan Mullin, a former New
York City Police Ofcer, was hired as the units
head in 2008. Former U.S. Secret Service direc-
tor Mark Sullivan was brought in to assist in the
Biogenesis probe.
After the Miami New Times report, baseball
investigators examined the Facebook pages of
Bosch and Porter Fisher, the former Biogenesis
associate who gave documents to the newspa-
per. They began to sketch out which people
they were friends with, and which of those
friends posted photos of athletes or mentioned
athletes. Each link led to new loops that pro-
vided leads.
MLB led a lawsuit in March against
Biogenesis of America, company founder
Anthony Bosch and others, complaining they
interfered with the contracts between MLB and
the union. The suit was unusual and may never
reach trial, but it did give MLB the ability to le
civil subpoenas.

CINCINNATI Jay Bruce homered and
made a run-saving catch on the warning
track, and Mat Latos pitched into the eighth
inning against Oaklands slumping lineup
on Tuesday night, leading the Cincinnati
Reds to a 3-1 victory over the Athletics.
The Reds had dropped seven of nine and
were coming off what players called an
embarrassing weekend against St. Louis
losses of 13-3 and 15-2.
They found an American League team
struggling even more. The West-leading
Athletics have lost ve of six.
Latos (11-3) allowed four hits through 7
1-3 shutout innings, leaving him 3-0 in his
last four starts. Aroldis Chapman gave up
Derek Norris two-out homer in the ninth
while getting his 26th save in 30 chances.
Bruce hit his 23rd homer off Dan Straily
(6-6), who has lost his last four starts. The
right elder also went a long way to run
down Josh Reddicks y ball to the warning
track in the fourth, saving a run.
The As made their rst visit to Great
American Ball Park opened in 2003
hoping to break out of their offensive
slump in a hitter-friendly place. The As are
only 8-9 since the All-Star break.
Heading into the interleague series, the
As were batting .218 in their last 20 games,
getting blanked four times. They were com-
ing off a 4-0 loss to Texas on Sunday.
Manager Bob Melvin said his players knew
all about Great Americans propensity to
help hitters, and hoped it would provide
some encouragement.

three-start winless stretch and the Milwaukee
Brewers beat the San Francisco Giants 3-1 on
Tuesday night.
Gomez hit his 18th homer in the second as
the Brewers jumped on Cain (7-7) early.
Jonathan Lucroy added a ninth-inning sacrice
Peralta (8-11) struck out six of nine batters
during an early sequence and nished with six
Ks in 6 1-3 innings for his rst career victory
against the Giants.
Cain was handed his rst loss since the All-
Star break. The right-hander had been 2-0 with a
1.80 ERAin the second half, and pitched well
enough to win this one.
Brandon Crawford doubled to start the eighth
but the Giants failed to bring him home for what
would have been the tying run.
Cain allowed two runs and four hits in seven
innings, struck out six and didnt walk a batter
for the fth time this year but it wasnt
enough with little help from a stagnant offense.
He has had his toughest moments against
Milwaukee, going 3-7 in 11 career starts.
The struggling defending World Series cham-
pions are 2 for 22 (.090) with runners in scoring
position in the rst two games of the series.
Pinch-hitter Joaquin Arias drove in a run on a
groundout in the seventh as San Francisco
avoided being shut out.
Arias elding error in the ninth led to
Milwaukee scoring an unearned run on Lucroys
sac y. The Giants had gone four games without
an error, but still have 80 for the second-most in
the NLbehind the Brewers.

Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
By Doug Ferguson
Woods is leaving nothing to
chance in his last chance this year
to win a major.
Fresh off a seven-shot victory at
a World Golf Championship his
fth win of the season Woods
showed up at Oak Hill late Monday
afternoon and spent most of his
time chipping and putting, trying
to learn the nuances of the greens.
Remember, his failure to adjust to
the greens is what derailed him at
the British Open two weeks ago.
He also spent time with Steve
Stricker talking about putting,
which must have been a daunting
sight for the other players. The last
time Stricker gave him some put-
ting tips was in early March, and
Woods went on to win three of his
next four tournaments.
The stakes are
higher than
usual for him at
the PGA
This isnt the
rst time Woods
has gone into
nal major try-
ing to make sure
his season does-
nt end without one. One difference
from previous years is that Woods
now is piling up wins just about
everywhere except the majors.
The Bridgestone Invitational was
his fth win of the year. Only twice
in the last 30 years has a player had
at least that many PGATour wins in
a season without a major Woods
in 2009 and Woods in 2003.
For someone who has been stuck
on 14 majors the last ve years,
Woods didnt sound like he was in
panic mode.
I think winning one major
championship automatically
means you had a great year, he said
Tuesday after playing nine holes
and spending even more time in the
practice area, ne-tuning a game
that already is in great shape. Even
if you miss the cut in every tourna-
ment you play, you win one
(major), youre part of history.
This year, I think its been a
great year so far for me, winning
ve times, he said. And you look
at the quality of tournaments Ive
won The Players and two World
Golf Championships in there
thats pretty good.
It used to be major or bust for
Woods, but when asked if he had
adjusted his standards during this
ve-year drought, Woods offered a
simple, No.
Still a great year without a major?
Yeah, Woods said, offering
nothing more than a smile.
Even so, he conceded that the
15th major has been tougher to get
than he would have imagined. So
much has transpired since that U.S.
Open playoff victory at Torrey
Pines in 2008 reconstructive
surgery on his left knee that wiped
out the rest of the 2008 season; rev-
elations of multiple extramarital
affairs at the end of 2009 that led to
divorce and cost him millions in
corporate endorsements; more
injuries that forced him to skip two
majors in 2011.
The very thing that irritates him
about his recent record in the
majors is what gives him hope
he keeps giving himself opportuni-
Ive had my opportunities there
on the back nine on probably half
of those Sundays for the last ve
years, where Ive had a chance and
just havent won it, Woods said.
But the key is to keep giving
myself chances, and eventually Ill
start getting them.
The traditional, tree-lined East
Course at Oak Hill can present the
appearance of Firestone, where
Woods won for the eighth time last
week. The difference is the greens
on the Donald Ross design, which
tend to slope severely to the front.
The rough is thicker than usual, not
nearly as severe as Merion, but
enough to get players attention to
hit whatever club his necessary off
the tee to keep it in the short grass.
Woods tied for 39th and never
broke par when the PGA
Championship was last held at Oak
Hill in 2003, though thats a pretty
small sample to argue if this course
suits him. Remember, he was n-
ishing his rst full year without a
swing coach. And while he won ve
times that year, Woods won only
one tournament over the last six

Anthony Bosch, sold PEDs to a number of
high school athletes, and that he came forward
with those allegations with hopes that law
enforcement would take a deeper look into
what the clinic did before its doors closed.
The FHSAAsaid it read those claims, and the
associations director called them a wake-up
We have received no proof or no evidence,
said Dr. Roger Dearing, the FHSAAs director.
We dont know if the NFL or the NBAor the
baseball league has, but its obvious to us that
through the news coverage that there is an
issue with the Biogenesis lab in South
Rodriguez, who is appealing baseballs rul-
ing, was suspended for 211 games for what
baseball said were his links to Biogenesis.
His high school coach, Rich Hofman, said he
was disappointed but not necessarily surprised
when he heard allegations of high schoolers
getting PEDs from the clinic.
People will do anything today to get an
edge, even on this level, Hofman said.
Theres so much money in this game and peo-
ples eyes are so big. ... You can do all the talk-
ing you want, you can put in all the legislation
you want, but there will always be people try-
ing to get an edge. Somebody is out there and
if theres a way, theyre going to try to beat the
Its unclear what will actually happen
through this review, or how school districts
could fund additional testing of athletes.
In 2004, a state lawmaker proposed that
Floridas schools, as a condition of their mem-
bership in the state athletic association, test
athletes randomly for steroids. A pilot pro-
gram started about three years later, with more
than 500 tests turning up just one positive
result for steroids. But steroid testing alone is
cost-prohibitive for many school districts.
More sophisticated tests, such as ones to
detect HGH, are even more expensive.
Still, Florida wants its athletes to at least be
better educated on the dangers.
Quite frankly, its a problem that must be
dealt with, Dearing said.

waves on hydrofoils, easily overhauled
Luna Rossa led by 29 seconds around the
downwind mark near Alcatraz Island. Artemis
blue-hulled cat made up eight seconds sailing
upwind toward the Golden Gate Bridge, but the
Italians proved to be superior sailing down-
wind and pulled away.
Shortly before the race, Luna Rossa had to
hoist a crewman up the wing sail to repair a
tear. Then the Italians were slow at the start,
giving Artemis the advantage.
It didnt matter. Once Luna Rossa popped up
onto hydrofoils sailing downwind, its advan-
tage over the blue-hulled boat became appar-
ent. The Italians had several nice foil-to-foil
gybes, with the hulls never touching the
waves as the boat zigzagged going downwind.
This Americas Cup could be determined by
which crews foil better. When the boats hit a
certain speed, they pop up unto winglets on
the bottoms of both rudders and a daggerboard
on the bottom of the leeward hull.
The winner of the semis advances to face
Emirates Team New Zealand in the Louis
Vuitton Cup nals starting Aug. 17. The win-
ner of that series faces defending champion
Oracle Team USA in the 34th Americas Cup
beginning Sept. 7.

PHILADELPHIA Wide receiver Riley
Cooper returned to the Philadelphia Eagles
Tuesday after a four-day excused absence to
undergo sensitivity training after he was
caught on lm yelling a
racial slur before a Kenny
Chesney concert.
Cooper, in his fourth
year out of the
University of Florida,
seemed remorseful during
an eight-minute press
conference with the
media after the Eagles
and New England
Patriots began what will
be a three-day practice routine before Friday
nights preseason opener.
Its great to be back doing what I love to
do, play football, Cooper said. I realize
being in the NFLyou have responsibility to
behave on and off the eld. I realize that.
I realize how many people I hurt, how
many families I hurt, how many kids I hurt.
Its going to be tough. Im going to live
with this every day the rest of my life. Its
one of those things you cant let affect your
play on the eld.
Video of Coopers racial slur surfaced
Wednesday. He was immediately ned an
undisclosed amount by the team, but was
not suspended. Ironically, two days earlier
he was promoted to the starting lineup after
Jeremy Maclin suffered a season-ending
Last Friday, Eagles coach Chip Kelly
announced that Cooper was given time off
to seek counseling. Kelly did not put a
timetable on his return. Four days later, he
was back at practice and caught two touch-
down passes against the Patriots defense.
My concern wasnt how he practiced,
Kelly said after practice. Its just him with
the team itself and to get the chance to make
sure he got to talk to every single guy so
that they understood how we felt, what he
did, and understand that hes truly sorry for
what he did.
Cooper said he talked to every one of his
teammates, face to face, and apologized.

Tony Stewart has
surgery following Iowa crash
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. Tony Stewart told
anyone who would listen why he continued
racing anywhere, anytime, regardless of purse
or crowd or car.
Even after he ipped ve times last week,
Stewart was quick to offer a stout defense for
his short-track weeknight racing while some
questioned if his extracurricular racing was
putting his championship chances in
NASCAR at risk.
Well, his championship chances are of-
cially over for this season.
The three-time NASCAR champion broke
his right leg Monday night at Southern Iowa
Speedway in Oskaloosa, where he ipped his
360 winged sprint car while leading with ve
laps remaining in the 30-lap feature. He had
surgery Tuesday on the upper and lower parts
of his leg, and Stewart-Haas Racing said hell
need a second surgery.

who tagged out the runner.
Emily Cotla started the winning rally in
the top of the seventh with a chopper up the
middle. Kelly Wong followed with a slap-
bunt single and both runners moved up
when the throw to rst was thrown away.
That brought up Sam Yee, who laced a shot
to right eld that got past the outelder and
allowed Yee to race around the bases for a
three-run, inside-the-park home run.
Pitcher Jena Lacayo pitched a 1-2-3 bot-
tom of the seventh to clinch the win.
Lacayo put together a whale of a tourna-
ment, starting and winning all eight
games. Quite an accomplishment consider-
ing she missed most of the summer with a
back injury.
It was quite amazing, Jordan said of
Lacayos tournament performance. She dug
deep and was able to pull out eight games,
including three games Saturday.
Cotla, who was slated to be the Storms
No. 2 pitcher, stepped up and assumed the
role of ace during most of the season, but
the Storm were at their strongest with
Lacayo in the circle and Cotla in the out-
The Storm offense got off to a roaring
start to the tournament as they beat their
rst two opponents in pool play by a com-
bined score of 29-4 15-2 over the Corona
All-Stars and 14-2 over the Utah Liberty.
Third baseman Vanessa Lee did the bulk of
the damage, hitting a grand slam in each of
the rst two games. Against Utah, Lee drove
in a team-high seven runs. In addition to her
second grand slam in as many games, she
added a three-run shot against Utah as well.
She slowed down the rest of the tourna-
ment as Jordan believed she started trying
to hit homers.
Once you start hitting home runs, some-
times you start trying to do too much,
Jordan said. After [those rst two games],
she continued to hit the ball hard. You could
tell she was pushing too hard to do too
Shes such a big, strong girl that any-
thing she hits is going to be hit hard.
After pool play, things got much tougher
for San Bruno. The Storm beat the Prescott
Lady Hawks 8-0 and then slipped by the
Arizona Hot Peppers. Saturday, the Storm
had to play three games and they came out
on top in all three: a 4-3 decision over San
Pedro, a 3-1 victory over El Segundo and the
2-0 win over San Ramon to move into the
championship game.
We did pretty well this whole summer,
Jordan said. I think we had a strong chance
(to win Western Nationals) this year.
Having the returning players come back
from last year kept the chemistry together.
Right off the bat we knew it was going to be
a good year.

Its All About People.
Details. Cleanliness. Pride. With 300 buses on the move
throughout San Mateo, Santa Clara and San Francisco
counties, these guys take their job very seriously.
See for yourself.
next week, and for August on Sept. 12. Thats
just three days after lawmakers return to face
threats by some conservatives of a govern-
ment shutdown on Oct. 1 or an economy-
threatening default on the national debt
weeks later.
With revenue rising, whats the ght about?
Now that the government is taking in more
money, Republicans in Congress are more
opposed than ever to tax increases sought by
President Barack Obama and his Democratic
This year the federal government will
bring more revenue in than in any year in our
history, says House Speaker John Boehner
of Ohio. We have a spending problem in
Washington. It has to be addressed.
But Obama and the Democrats want to do
away with some of the existing spending
cuts, and they say they wont accept signi-
cant further reductions unless theres also
action to bring in still more revenue.
Democrats know we must do more to
reduce the decit, says Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. We believe in a
balanced approach that pairs spending cuts
with having those that can afford it pay
At the same time, some economists worry
that currently rising revenue numbers will
reduce the pressure to address the nations
long-term debt problems.
I dont think political leaders feel that
they have a gun to their head the way they did
a couple years ago, said William Gale, a for-
mer economic adviser to President George
H.W. Bush and now co-director of the Tax
Policy Center. Theres a desire on some sides
to declare mission accomplished and ignore
the long-term decits and move on to other
Several factors are contributing to the
increase in revenue. Congress increased
income tax rates on high-income families in
January. The Congressional Budget Ofce
says some of those taxpayers probably
cashed in investments ahead of the tax hike,
boosting capital gains taxes. Congress also
let a temporary payroll tax cut expire at the
end of 2012, increasing Social Security
CBO also said a rise in personal income is
adding to tax revenue, even though economic
growth has been sluggish.
To see how important the economy is to
federal tax receipts, look at what happened in
2009, after the nation plunged into the worst
economic recession since the Great
Depression. Income tax receipts dropped by
20 percent from the year before, and corpo-
rate tax receipts dropped by 55 percent.
Social Security tax receipts dropped for the
rst time since 1946.
The budget decit, which topped $1 trillion
for four straight years, is projected to fall to
$642 billion in the budget year that ends in
September, according to the Congressional
Budget Ofce. The spending cuts enacted over
the past several years are combining with
higher tax receipts to reduce government bor-
Under current law, the budget ofce projects
that the federal decit will shrink even further
in the next several years before starting to
grow again at the end of the decade. But with
the national debt approaching $17 trillion,
the long-term nancial problems arent
exactly solved, Gale said.
Its kind of like somebody carrying an
extra 15 pounds around their waist, he said.
Over the long term it kind of hurts your
health, wears you out, reduces your mobili-
t y.
Congress is headed toward two potential
budget showdowns this fall, one when fund-
ing for the government runs out at the end of
September and another when the U.S. reaches
the limit of its borrowing authority later in
the fall.
Republicans are demanding spending cuts
in exchange for a debt limit increase, which
will be needed to prevent an unprecedented
default on U.S. obligations. But Obama says
he wont negotiate over raising the debt
That debate could provide an opportunity to
address the nations long-term nances. But
there doesnt seem to be much appetite in
Washington for the kind of grand bargain
decit reduction package that Obama and
Boehner tried to negotiate in 2011. That
package would have cut spending and
increased revenues, but Obama and Boehner
were never able to agree on the details.
If not a grand bargain, a somewhat bar-
gain evolved over the following 17 months.
Republicans willing to trigger a default on
the governments debt forced Democrats and
Obama in August 2011 to agree to cutting
government spending by $2.1 trillion over
the following decade, including $1.2 trillion
in the automatic spending cuts taken equal-
ly from military and domestic programs
that began in earnest this March.

Several exchange students traveled to
Toyonaka in 1962 and, when they came
back, they spoke with city ofcials about
the similarities between the two cities.
The relationship rst began when a dele-
gation of San Mateo city ofcials visited
Toyonaka in 1963 and established pro-
grams such as library book exchanges and
gift exchanges, according to George
Musante, treasurer of the Sister City
The Sister City Association, run primari-
ly by volunteers, helps to organize many of

According to Carolyn Shavel, vice presi-

ence toward expanding their world views
and fostering lifelong friendships.
[The cultural exchange] is a great way to
see [the host families] homes and the
Japanese way of life ... it was very exciting
to participate in the day-to-day activities,
Shavel said.

NEWYORK Taco Bell says its expand-
ing its small test of wafe tacos, as it pre-
pares to take its breakfast menu national
sometime next year.
The fast-food chain says the wafe taco,
which includes scrambled eggs, sausage and
a side of syrup, was the top seller during
breakfast hours at the five Southern
California restaurants where they were test-
ed earlier this year. Now the company wants
to see how it would fare on a bigger scale;
the wafe tacos and a full breakfast menu
will be expanded to about 100 restaurants in
Fresno; Omaha, Neb.; and Chattanooga,
Tenn., starting Thursday.
Brian Niccol, president of Taco Bell, said
the idea is partly to get a better sense of how
well restaurants will be able to handle the
added operational pressure from the wafe
You only get one shot when you go with
big items, he said.
Taco Bell already offers breakfast at about
850 locations in 10 Western states and has
been tinkering with new items such as the
wafe taco before rolling it out to its 6,000
U.S. locations. Also being tested in the
additional locations starting Thursday are a
yogurt parfait and oatmeal.

Terrance Wise has two jobs in Kansas City
one at a burger joint, a second at a pizza
restaurant but he says his paychecks
arent enough to buy shoes for his three
daughters and insure his 15-year-old car. So
he decided to draw attention to his plight:
He walked off work in protest.
Wise was among a few thousand fast-food
workers in seven cities, including New
York, Chicago and Detroit, who took to the
streets last week, carrying Strike and
Supersize Our Wages signs in front of
McDonalds, Wendys, Burger King and other
restaurants. They demanded better pay, the
right to unionize and a more than doubling
of the federal minimum hourly wage from
$7.25 to $15.
We work hard for companies that are
making millions, the 34-year-old Wise
says, adding that he lost his home last year,
unable to make mortgage payments despite
working about 50-hour weeks at Pizza Hut
and Burger King. Were not asking for the
world. We want to make enough to make a
decent living. We deserve better. If they
respect us and pay us and treat us right, itll
lift up the whole economy.
These one-day protests, which also took
place in St. Louis, Milwaukee and Flint,
Mich., come amid calls from the White
House, some members of Congress and
economists to raise the federal minimum
wage, which was last increased in 2009.
Most of the proposals, though, seek a more
modest rise than those urged by fast-food
workers. President Barack Obama wants to
boost the hourly wage to $9. And in July,
more than 100 economists signed a petition
supporting a bill sponsored by a Florida
congressman that would hike it to $10.50
an hour.
The restaurant industry argues that a $15
hourly wage could lead to businesses clos-
ings and fewer jobs. It also notes the cost of
living varies greatly around the country and
many states have higher minimum wages
than the federal rate. (Eighteen states and
the District of Columbia, according to the
National Conference of State Legislatures.)
The Employment Policies Institute,
which receives some funding from the
industry, ran a full-page ad last week in USA
Today, warning of another potential conse-
quence: It showed the uniform of a fast-food
worker with an iPad face, saying the wage
increase could result in employees being
replaced with automation, such as touch-
screen ordering.
So at a time when the economy is growing
steadily but slowly and about 11.5 million
people are unemployed nearly double the
level before the Great Recession how
likely is it Congress will increase the mini-
mum wage? And have these protests done
any good?
The answers depend on whom you ask.
Theyre very effective, says U.S. Rep.
Keith Ellison, a Minnesota Democrat and
co-chair of the Congressional Progressive
Caucus. Theyve brought attention to
appalling conditions with workers putting
in very long hours ... and not making
enough money to survive. This I think is
scandal. .. We believe its essential to be
paid livable wages. We know the companies
can afford it. These are highly protable
businesses. It would be good not just for the
family budget but for the national budget.
Ellisons caucus launched a national
Raise Up America campaign this summer
that has partnered with fast-food workers
and others in low-wage industries to high-
light the call for better salaries. The con-
gressman says hes not deterred by likely
resistance in the GOP-dominated House.
Will fast-food protests spur
higher minimum wage?

As French restaurants
change,soare the laws
By Lori Hinnant
PARIS The country that gave us the words restaurant,
bistro and cuisine is changing how it eats.
For the rst time in France, fast food overtook traditional
restaurant receipts as the economic crisis deepened, and the
share of people who pack a lunch for work is rising faster by
the year. Meanwhile, lurid reports of the increasing number
of traditional restaurants resorting to frozen pre-packaged
meals to hold down their prices have shaken Frances sense
of culinary identity.
French lawmakers have swung into action to protect their
cuisine, which the government ofcially considers a matter
of national pride even to the point of persuading
UNESCO in 2010 to put French cuisine on its World
Heritage List.
I dont want chefs replaced by microwaves, said Daniel
Fasquelle, a lawmaker in the French Assembly who voted
recently for a measure that would require restaurants to print
fait maison or homemade on menus next to dishes
that were created from scratch.
Fasquelle said the legislation, which was approved in the
lower house and goes to the Senate in the fall, is weaker
than what he and other culinary warriors want but represents
a step in the right direction. Fasquelle is part of a movement
seeking to limit what can be called a restaurant to places
where more than half the food is made in-house. The idea is
to protect true cuisine and force the fakers who would
have to nd a more appropriate word, such as caterer to
fess up.
The harsher measure died in the Assembly earlier this year
but Fasquelle and his cohorts plan to propose it again in
September. The legislative pushes have parallels to require-
ments French bakeries were subjected to in 1998, when the
word boulangerie was legally reserved for establishments
that made bread from scratch and using a freezer at any
point in the process strictly prohibited.
Amid the parliamentary uproar, most French workers
increasingly pressed for time and money are unlikely to
probe too deeply.
Lunches that have traditionally run two hours or even
three hours in the south are being cut short by the modern
work day. According to a 2011 study, the French midday
break is down to an average of 22 minutes, compared with
nearly 90 minutes two decades ago. And a study this spring
found that a fth of French workers are bringing their food
from home to eat at work double the percentage just three
years ago, according to a survey this spring from industry
consultant Gira Conseil.
According to the study, fast food expenditures have sur-
bviously, the season has a
role in this, but lately Ive
found myself craving bread
and fresh tomatoes.
Its a combination with a history
for me. When I was a kid, my go-to
summer sandwich and I always
made it for myself because I was the
only one who could make it right
was slabs of whole-wheat bread
smeared thickly with Miracle Whip
and topped with hunks of extra-sharp
cheddar cheese and a single, think
slab of tomato. The slab had to be at
least 1 inch thick and had to be cut
from the center of the fruit. No ends
or tops, please.
It was heaven. Rich and creamy and
sharp and fresh. To this day, that
sandwich remains a comfort food I
return to. Usually around midnight.
By the time I was a tween, my fami-
ly had moved to Germany and week-
ends were spent driving around vari-
ous parts of Europe. We called it eat-
ing our way through the continent,
for dining and planning on dining did
seem to occupy much of our time. But
no matter where we were, lunch
always followed the same template.
Wed stop at a small, local bakery
and grab a heavy loaf of rustic bread.
Then on to a grocer for tomatoes, a
hunk of cheese and a jar of blistering-
ly hot mustard. Then wed nd a park
and sit down with our spread, tearing
off hunks of bread, dabbing them
with mustard and
topping them
with ragged
chunks of cheese
and slices of
As repetitive as
that lunch sounds,
it actually was a
wonderfully deli-
cious way to
explore the differ-
ent cuisines. The
breads and
cheeses vary so much between
regions and countries.
Now that Im adult and have a child
of my own, I dont nd myself wan-
dering Europe during weekends quite
so much. Id actually be happy just to
get out to a movie now and then. But
I still crave particularly this time
of year the simple pleasure of
bread and tomato. So I decided to cre-
ate a grown up version, rich with gar-
lic and rosemary.
But the focus, as it should be,
remains on the bread and tomatoes.
Start to nish: 15 minutes
Servings: 4
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 large sprig fresh rosemary, nely
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
Ground black pepper
4 large, thick slices sourdough
4 large tomatoes
3 ounces Parmesan cheese
Heat the oven to broil.
In a small, sturdy bowl, combine
the garlic, rosemary, olive oil, salt
and black pepper, to taste. Mix well,
then use the back of a heavy spoon to
mash the garlic and rosemary togeth-
er to form a paste. This also can be
done using a mortar and pestle, or a
mini food processor. The rosemary
wont mash well; this is ne.
Spread a quarter of the mixture over
one side of each slice of bread.
Slice 2 thick slabs out of the center
of each tomato. Reserve the tops and
bottoms of the tomatoes for another
use. Set 2 slabs over each piece of
bread. Shave some of the Parmesan
over the tomatoes on each slice. Set
the assembled bread on a baking
sheet and broil on the ovens middle
rack until the cheese is just starting
the brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Serve immediately.

Remember, things that dont look possi-
ble become possible if people advocate for
them, he says, adding that in 1955 some-
one was probably saying theyre never
going to end segregation. ... Sometimes
these things catch on. I think the thing to
do is keep on pushing, keep on talking. ...
Thats how we win.
But others are more skeptical and think if
there is a winner, its unions. The Service
Employees International Union is provid-
ing nancial support and staff to help train
organizers for this campaign.
These protests show unions still can
appeal to and speak for workers who are on
the fringes of the workforce the less
skilled, the part-timers and the immigrant
workers, Gary Chaison, professor of
industrial relations at Clark University in
Massachusetts, wrote in an email.
These still are hard times, people are
happy to be employed and the political cli-
mate in the House is not conducive for an
increase, he adds. The demonstrations are
street theater and the rehabilitation of the
image of American unions, but its not
going to drive new minimum wage policy,
he wrote.
Scott DeFife, executive vice president of
the National Restaurant Association, calls
the protests a campaign to disparage the
industry, which he says operates on a tight
prot margin. Doubling wages, he says,
would denitely have an impact on the cre-
ation of new jobs. He says it would be
especially harmful for young people, for
whom the jobless rate in some communities
is already in the double digits.
Some fast food companies responded to
the protests by saying they respect the
rights of their workers.
And some who walked out used the media
spotlight to talk openly about their nan-
cial struggles.
Kareem Starks, a 30-year-old father of two
boys, 6 and 12, was laid off in 2011 from a
$17.50-an-hour city job in New York. His
unemployment benefits ran out and he
turned to food pantries. Five months ago,
he found work at McDonalds .
Im grateful they gave me an opportunity
to feed my family and put food on the table,
but its not enough, he says. Starks sup-
plements his income with a second job as a
security guard, earning about $8 an hour.
Together, he says, he brings home about
$1,000-$1,100 every two weeks and needs
food stamps to survive.
Its horrible to know when I pick up my
(McDonalds) check, its going to be less
than $200, he says. You spend all your
money in one store and go to sleep broke.
Its not fair. ... Some people get their
checks and dont come back to work.
The average hourly salary for fast-food
workers was $9.00 in May 2012, according
to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The aver-
age age for these workers is 29 years old; for
women, its 32, according to the bureau. The
restaurant association says its own analysis
of Census data found that slightly more than
25 percent of fast-food workers are heads of
Both sides in the ght over the minimum
wage cite numerous studies to buttress their
arguments about whether a raise would be
The petition signed by the economists
says that for decades, research has found
that no signicant effects on employment
opportunities result when the minimum
wage rises in reasonable increments. The
economists also note that minimum-wage
workers employed full time for the entire
year earn $15,080, almost 20 percent below
the poverty level for a family of three.
But Michael Saltsman, research director at
the Employment Policies Institute, cites
another study that he says found raising the
minimum wage was counterproductive
with more people losing than gaining
because hours were reduced and jobs were
Tessie Harrell, one of the workers in the
middle of this academic debate, walked off

Taco Bell isnt alone in trying to serve
food in different parts of the day. Since
restaurant chains are already paying for
fixed costs of such as rent and electricity,
the thinking is that they want to ring up
as many sales as possible throughout the
day, not just during the busy lunch and
dinner hours. In industry jargon, execu-
tives often refer to this concept as
expanding dayparts.
McDonalds, for example, has been
testing an After Midnight menu that
mixes breakfast and lunch items. Taco
Bell has also been promoting a Happier
Hour, which features snacks and drinks
intended to attract customers in the late
afternoon, when business tends to be
Yum Brands Inc., the parent company of
Taco Bell, clearly sees breakfast as its
next big opportunity. In a conference call
with analysts last month, Yum President
Richard Carucci said that breakfast has
accounted for about 4 percent of sales in
restaurants where its been available.
But this is before weve now dialed it
up, he noted.
Since they were introduced in March,
the waffle tacos have undergone some
tweaks, including the frying time and
temperature, Niccol said. The shape of the
taco, which has 460 calories and 30 grams
of fat, was changed to make it easier to
hold the stuffing.
If it does as well in the expanded test as
it did at the five locations, Niccol said he
doesnt see why it wouldnt be on the
national menu.

passed traditional restaurants for the rst
time, making up 54 percent of receipts.
But dont think that French fast food
means strictly McDonalds, whose sales in
France are slumping this year, according to
their most recent quarterly results.
One of the biggest drivers of the fast food
trend are the very French boulangeries that
were subject to regulation back in the 90s.
These days theyve become masters of serv-
ing up delicious quick meals for the price of
a Big Mac and fries and these come under
the category of fast food.
For Estelle Levy, who opened a bakery
two years ago in Paris, the choice was clear.
A traditional French bakery has three pro-
ducers: one to make bread, one to make pas-
tries and cakes and a third to make breakfast
fare like croissants. She decided to forgo the
croissant specialist and hired a cook to
serve quick meals instead.
The day that I dont make bread, my busi-
ness is over, she said, seated next to the
espresso machine in her dining area. But
my bakery wouldnt be viable if I didnt
serve food.
More than a third of her income is from
the lunches, she said. Most of her customers
grab a sandwich, a pastry and a drink and
take off. Afew linger at the handful of tables
she set up facing the display cases contain-
ing pasta, quiches and desserts. The bread is
there, of course, but its tucked behind the
While bakeries like Levys are cashing in
on the fast food trend, so are supermarkets.
This spring Carrefour, the hypermarket
chain, began offering a new line of what the
French call snacking because a meal on
the run is considered just that.
Even so, French avor demands remain
unchanged, said Anne-Marie Ferrari, a
Carrefour executive. In France, she said,
snacking also has to mean eating well.
A small dessert is expected at even the
most rushed of meals, and the idea of a meal
eaten while walking or driving is anathema.
Carrefour, which like any established
restaurant accepts the subsidized vouchers
that many French ofce workers receive to
buy lunch, prices the new meals well within
their 7 to 8 euro ($9-10) daily midday budg-
It all means traditional restaurants are get-
ting squeezed and have been quietly reacting
by turning to a pair of scissors and a
microwave reheating outsourced ready-
made meals, said Fasquelle, the lawmaker.
He thinks its a quick-x solution that will
create a long-term problem for the entire
Forty percent of tourists come here for
our cuisine, he said. If food quality contin-
ues to deteriorate, he added, at some point
jobs will be at stake. France is not like
other countries when it comes to cuisine.
Its the country of good food, good wine.
Its hard to nd anyone to publicly defend
the idea of using frozen, prepared foods in a
restaurant. This is, after all, the same coun-
try where a group of angry farmers tore apart
a McDonalds in 1999. But according to
Synhorcat, the national restaurant and hotel
union, only about 55 percent of restaurant
meals are made in-house from fresh ingredi-
The French are modifying how they eat,
not only fast food, but also at the high end,
said Bernard Boutboul, who led the study.
And everything that is mid-range in France
is less and less popular because its of lower
quality, lower avor.
Thats perhaps borne out with the latest
sales figures: The union that represents
major French restaurants, including nation-
al chains, on Monday said the number of
visits had fallen by 13.2 percent compared
with the same period a year ago.

the San Mateo County Office of
Education. Theyre computer adap-
tive, so when a student answers a ques-
tion, it will increase or decrease the
rigor of questions based on if they got
it right or wrong. Its expected to give
a much more accurate idea of where the
student is.
Waddell, also chair-elect on the
Curriculum and Instruction Steering
Committee at the San Mateo County
Ofce of Education, said his ofce is
currently trying to help schools in the
county get up to standards through cur-
ricular support, professional develop-
ment for teachers around the Common
Core as well as data support and analy-
sis. Waddell said theres also a per-
formance assessment component to
the new tests: generating writing,
working with a group, then respond-
ing individually based on group work.
California was one of 45 states, the
District of Columbia and four territo-
ries that got on board with the
Common Core curriculum back in
2010. Since then, schools in the state
have been trying to get up to the new
standards. The most significant
changes will come during the 2014-15
school year, which will include the
Smarter Balance Assessments.
Its a better way of assessing stu-
dents, Waddell said. Using technolo-
gy will have positive impact on teach-
ing and learning in classrooms, as
long as its a thoughtful use of tech-
nol ogy. Things teachers could not
have done before with technology will
have huge implications on instruc-
So far, Waddell said, the Redwood
City Elementary School District has
been an exemplary Common Core
adopter since he said it is doing really
concerted work to switch over from
older standards. Everyone is making
the transition, but this district is a lit-
tle ahead of the game, he said.
California was an early adopter in
the standards movement, Waddell
said. Common Core is the next gener-
ation of standards. They really fit
together tightly between grade levels
and its the rst time weve really said
the students in all participating states
will be tested on the same standards,
allowing for a level playing eld.
Andy Parsons, associate superin-
tendent of instruction at the San Mateo
Union High School District, has been
helping get the district up to Common
Core standards.
Were ahead of the curve compared
to other districts, Parsons said. This
is exciting because this is the rst time
I know of where theres been a formal
agreement between districts to focus
on curriculum core alignment, stream-
lining courses.
Although schools will not be
required to administer STAR tests any-
more when the Smarter Balance tests
come into play, federal guidelines
would require 10th graders to continue
to take the STAR tests. Parsons said
the county is trying to get a waiver for
these students, but its not guaranteed
at this point. Through the Academic
Performance Index, or API, the 10th
grade STAR test scores drove the allo-
cation of millions of dollars in inter-
vention and award programs, depend-
ing on the health of the states budget.
The grant would also require creating
a consortium to be created with other
feeder elementary schools. Pam
Bartfield, principal at George Hall
Elementary School in San Mateo, has
taken on a special assignment posi-
tion to support entire San Mateo-
Foster City Elementary School
District shift to Common Core stan-
The grant application is due Aug. 12.
Parsons said hes heard its a competi-
tive grant, but that San Mateo has an
excellent chance of getting it.
Otherwise, he said San Mateo Union
High School District is committed to
collaborating with feeder schools on
issues surrounding the new curriculum.

state already imposes and enforces,
said Eric Moore of the Central Coast
Forest Association. Chuck Henderson,
whose family has been involved in
forestry since 1894, said the county is
unclear on what it wants to review and
that multiple state agencies already
provide oversight.
We have a lot of folks looking over
our shoulders, Henderson said.
The recommended new and amended
fees include Williamson Act compli-
ance inspections, lot line adjustment
for urban and rural properties, plan
review of minor modifications to
approved projects, appeals, water
heater replacements and emergency
tree removal permits. Design confer-
ences and counter meetings will also
be charged.
Aside from the pointed opposition
to the harvesting fee, other county res-
idents subject to the Planning and
Building Department fees spoke gener-
ally about ballooning costs.
Maria Rutenberg, an Emerald Hills
resident who belongs to Citizens
United for Planning and Building
Reform, said she recently traveled the
planning process while making a
very small addition to her house
including a garage. The cost from the
county was $6,276. A trip to neigh-
boring Redwood Citys planning divi-
sion for cost comparison returned a
$1,400 price for the same project, she
And thats just not fair, she said.
Nancy Mangini, of the Emerald Hills
Community Coalition, thanked
Horsley for the extra consideration
We would like to bring solutions to
the table that include outsourcing the
entire department, Mangini said,
ticking off Millbrae and Half Moon
Bay as examples of jurisdictions that
have slashed costs by contracting.
Prior to Tuesdays meeting, Mangini
also voiced concern that making per-
mits even more pricey will only make
homeowners more likely to perform
illegal work which she said is already
common in some areas. She also
argued that the county will be left sub-
sidizing cost of living adjustments for
the departments workers when home-
owners dont pay for permits.
Because the item was not heard,
supervisors did not address any of the
concerns and Community
Development Director Jim Eggemeyer
did not present his proposal. However,
in a report to the board, Eggemeyer
said the department has not requested
any overall general fee increase since
scal year 2004-05 when it raised per-
mit costs to eliminate the general fund
contribution. The 5 percent fee
increase, he wrote, recovers the actual
cost of business billed at $100 per
hour, helps the department maintain
current service levels and creates more
revenue with which to address work-
load demands in the upcoming scal
year. Since 2008, department reserves
have dwindled by 95 percent, vacant
positions were eliminated and the oth-
ers reorganized, according to
The proposed increase would gener-
ate an estimated $218,000 a year on
top of $18,000 annually for the new
Fee adjustments were rst proposed
in March 2012 but tabled after county
supervisors asked staff to meet rst
with a two-member subcommittee and
address concerns voiced by the public.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Be extremely careful as
to how you delegate assignments. If you select the
wrong person for the job, you could end up with a
big mess on your hands.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Dont let yourself get
drawn into a disagreement between two friends.
Regardless of which pal you side up with, your
involvement will only cause more trouble.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Just because things are
going smoothly at present, dont be indifferent to an
important matter. Complacence could be your worst
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Its always smart to
be extra careful about what you put in writing and to
keep close track of the details of past agreements.
Youll need to tread carefully today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Dont look
for much help regarding a fnancial problem.
Unfortunately, youll have to take care of matters all
by yourself. Do your best; things will eventually get
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If youre thinking
about teaming up with somebody for a special
endeavor, be sure that your partner can make
a worthwhile contribution. You dont want to be
saddled with dead weight.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- This might not be a
good day to get involved in something that requires
total concentration and consistency. These qualities
might not be your strong suit at present.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If, for some
reason, youre feeling reluctant to attend a social
engagement, it might be better to pass it up rather
than go and make a bad impression.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Dont depend on Lady
Luck to intervene and help you out; youre on your
own this time. If you hope to get what you want, roll
up your sleeves and get to work.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Its best that you more
or less keep your trap shut today because there is a
good chance your comments will be misconstrued
and cause you to be seen as the bad guy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- More discipline than
usual might be required if youre going to stay on
budget. Extravagant urges could easily overpower
you if youre not careful.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you fnd yourself
making a legal commitment, be sure to get the very
best counsel available. It wouldnt be wise to depend
solely on your own judgment.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, con-
tingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or es-
tate, or both, of: Peggy Ann Thorpe. A
Petition for Probate has been filed by
Linda S. Thorpe and Laura K. Wilson in
the Superior Court of California, County
of San Mateo. The Petition for Probate
requests that Linda S. Thorpe and Laura
K. Wilson be appointed as personal rep-
resentative to administer the estate of
the decedent.
The petition requests authority to admin-
ster the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This au-
thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an ob-
jection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: September 9, 2013
at 9:00 a.m., Dept. 28, Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo, 400
County Center, Redwood City, CA
94063. If you object to the granting of the
petition, you should appear at the hear-
ing and state your objections or file writ-
ten objections with the court before the
hearing. Your appearance may be in
person or by your attorney. If you are a
creditor or a contingent creditor of the
decedent, you must file your claim with
the court and mail a copy to the personal
representative appointed by the court
within four months from the date of first
issuance of letters as provided in Pro-
bate Code section 9100. The time for fil-
ing claims will not expire before four
months from the hearing date noticed
above. You may examine the file kept by
the court. If you are a person interested
in the estate, you may file with the court
a Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-
praisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special No-
tice form is available from the court clerk.

Pythons strangling of two boys
in Canada under investigation
By Rob Gillies
TORONTO A100-pound python blamed in the stran-
gling deaths of two Canadian boys apparently escaped from
its enclosure, slithered through a ventilation system and
fell through the ceiling into the room where the young
brothers were sleeping, authorities said Tuesday.
Asnake expert said it was possible that the python was
spooked and simply clung to whatever it landed on. Police
are treating the deaths in Campbellton, New Brunswick, as
a criminal investigation.
Autopsies on Noah Barthe, 4 and his brother Connor
Barthe, 6, were being performed Tuesday.
The brothers had been visiting the apartment of a friend
whose father owned an exotic pet store on the oor below,
Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Alain Tremblay said at
a news conference in Campbellton. Tremblay said the
African rock python was being kept inside the second oor
apartment, not inside the pet store as authorities had previ-
ously stated.
Steve Benteau, a spokesman for the provincial Natural
Resources Department, said no permit was issued for an
African rock python and the province wasnt aware it was
being kept at the apartment. The department said the snake
is generally only permitted in accredited zoos, unless there
is a special permit.
Tremblay said the snake was housed in a large glass enclo-
sure that reached the ceiling of the apartment and escaped
through a small hole in the ceiling connected to the venti-
lation system. He said the snake made its way through the
ventilation system and moved toward the living room,

CAIRO Two U.S. Senators came
to Egypt Tuesday with a message for
the countrys new
mi l i t a r y - b a c k e d
leaders: Release
Islamist gures as a
gesture to the
M u s l i m
Brotherhood or risk
making a huge
The message from
R e p u b l i c a n
Senators John
McCain and
Lindsey Graham
met with a sharp
r e s p o n s e ,
denounced by inter-
im President Adly
Mansour in a brief
statement as unac-
ceptable interfer-
ence in internal
The new leadership, emboldened by
mass demonstrations of support,
showed no sign of willingness to
release Muslim Brotherhood figures
whom McCain called political pris-
oners and whom the government
plans to prosecute for allegedly incit-
ing violence.
As the senators made their rounds,
authorities announced that two
Mohamed Morsi aides would be jailed
and face charges of inciting violence in
December when Muslim Brotherhood
members attacked a sit-in by protesters
outside Morsis office that sparked
clashes, killing 10 people.
At stake is stability in the Arab
worlds most populous country. The
new leadership is facing international
calls to ease its crackdown on Morsis
group while also dealing with calls by
millions of Egyptians to clear
Brotherhood-led sit-ins in two major
intersections of the capital. Some 250
people have been killed in various
clashes since Morsis ouster.
The Brotherhood is demanding
Morsis reinstatement as Egypts rst
freely elected president while the new
government vows to push ahead with
fresh elections early next year.
The McCain-Graham visit was car-
ried out at U.S. President Barack
Obamas request, but their message
differed from his. For one thing, they
called what happened on July 3 a coup,
a word the administration avoided
because it would trigger a suspension
of the $1.3 billion a year in U.S. mil-
itary aid to Egypt.

WASHINGTON The map of closed
American embassies and those that
remain open in the Middle East and
Africa provides a window into the
Obama administrations concern
about a potentially imminent al-Qaida
terrorist attack on overseas U.S. inter-
While diplomatic missions across a
broad swath of the Arab world are
affected, some, including in capitals
that have been targets for extremists
in the past, are not. And those chosen
for closure in Africa and the Indian
Ocean suggest that the fear may be as
much about the vulnerability of certain
embassies and staff and the range of
increasingly mobile terrorists as it is
about specic threats.
One apparently key factor: How sig-
nicant is the security that is now in
A total of 19 U.S. embassies and
consulates in 16 countries have been
ordered to close to the public until
Saturday. They run along a jagged,
east-to-south crescent from Libya
through the Persian Gulf to Rwanda
and include the island nations of
Madagascar and Mauritius, Thats
fewer missions in fewer nations than
were ordered closed this past Sunday in

to intelligence that al-Qaida in the
Arabian Peninsula was gearing up for
an attack.

SANAA, Yemen Yemen was
thrust back into the forefront of
the international ght against ter-
rorism Tuesday when the U.S. and
Britain evacuated embassy staff
due to a threatened attack, a sus-
pected U.S. drone killed four
alleged members of al-Qaida, and
militants shot down a Yemeni
army helicopter.
As Westerners ew out of the
country, Yemeni authorities
launched a wide investigation into
the al-Qaida threat to multiple
potential targets in the impover-
ished Arab nation. Security of-
cials said they believed the terror
network was seeking retaliation
for a U.S.-backed military offen-
sive that has dealt serious set-
backs to the terror networks most
active branch, including the death
earlier this year of its No. 2 leader.
The Yemeni army, meanwhile,
surrounded foreign installations,
government ofces and the airport
with tanks and troops in the
nations capital, Sanaa, as well as
the strategic Bab al-Mandeb
straits at the entrance to the Red
Sea in the southern Arabian
Peninsula, drawing parallels with
security measures following the
2000 bombing of the USS Cole in
Aden harbor that killed 17
American sailors.
Authorities also set up check-
points across Sanaa, searching
cars and individuals, especially
after night fell. Top govern-
ment officials, along with mili-
tary and security commanders,
were told to stay vigilant and
limit their movements.
Although the immediate threat
seemed to be focused on Yemen,
the U.S. has temporarily shut
down 19 diplomatic posts in the
Middle East and Africa. A U.S.
intelligence official and a
Mideast diplomat told he
Associated Press that the closures
were triggered by the intercep-
tion of a secret message between
al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahri
and Nasser al-Wahishi, the leader
of the Yemen-based al-Qaida in
the Arabian Peninsula, about
plans for a major terror attack.
The officials spoke on condition
of anonymity because they were
not authorized to discuss the mat-
ter publicly. Zawahri also made a
public statement on July 30 that
exhorted Muslims to kill
Americans in every spot on
Yemeni investigators looking
into the threat said they believe
the motive of the attack was retal-
iation for the killing of Saudi-
born Saeed al-Shihri, who was
released from the U.S. prison in
Guantanamo Bay after nearly six
years and later became the No. 2
al-Qaida leader in Yemen. Al-
Shihri was critically wounded in a
November drone strike and later
died of his wounds, the militant
group acknowledged.
The terror network has suffered a
series of setbacks after the mili-
tary launched an offensive in June
with the help of U.S. forces that
has succeeded in uprooting it from
strongholds in the south. The
group had taken advantage of the
instability after the Arab Spring
wave of revolutions that led to the
resignation of Yemens longtime
leader, Ali Abdullah Saleh.
Yemens current president, Abdo
Rabby Mansour Hadi, met with
President Barack Obama at the
White House last week, where
both leaders cited strong countert-
errorism cooperation.
Pentagon Press Secretary
George Little said the U.S. Air
Force transported State
Department personnel out of
Sanaa early Tuesday. The depart-
ment said in a travel warning that
it had ordered the departure of non-
emergency U.S. government per-
sonnel due to the continued
potential for terrorist attacks,
adding that U.S. citizens should
leave immediately because of an
extremely high security threat
A senior defense official said
that between 50 and 100 diplomat-
ic personnel were flown from
Sanaa in a military transport to
Ramstein Air Base in Germany.
The ofcial was not authorized to
discuss the information publicly
and spoke on condition of
anonymity. The official said
dozens of military troops remain
in Yemen, including those provid-
ing security at the embassy and
others training Yemeni troops.
Britains Foreign Office also
said it evacuated all staff from its
embassy due to increased security
concerns. The Foreign Ofce said
the staff were temporarily with-
drawn to the U.K. And the Dutch
Foreign Ministry has issued a call
for about 40 of its citizens to
leave Yemen, although it did not
say whether that included its six
embassy workers.
