San Bruno teachers and district ofcials
reached a tentative agreement this past
Friday to restore ve contested furlough
days enacted during the economic downturn.
The San Bruno Education Association and
the San Bruno Park Elementary School
District announced Thursday that they
reached a tentative agreement Friday, March
14 on the previously agreed-to furlough
days that teachers requested be restored.
Three school days will be added to the end of
the current school year, along with two pro-
fessional development days.
It also provides the opportunity for
teachers and staff members to receive
important professional development train-
ing that can be implemented in classrooms
for the benet of students, Superintendent
David Hutt said in a statement. Training
that has unfortunately been somewhat sacri-
ced as a result of the tough economic times
school districts across the state have been
facing.
District teachers agreed last year to take
ve unpaid furlough days to help the district
when nances were tight, but protested last
week saying the district had the funds to
restore the cut days. Within the context of
agreement with the teachers association,
the cost is $250,000, while the anticipated
total cost as applied to all employees is
$400,000. This will be funded by money
earmarked by the state for such purposes in
connection with the implementation of the
Common Core state standards, Hutt said in

Council divided
over when to
talk land swap
By Michelle Durand
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
The San Carlos City Council agrees the
proposed land swap between the city and
school district to accommodate a charter
school and more eld space needs to be
discussed publicly the divide is over
just when.
Mayor Mark Olbert, a strong propo-
nent of trading the land above the Tierra
Linda Middle School campus for an underutilized parcel on
Crestview Drive, is taking to his blog asking residents to
attend Monday nights meeting and request the council
agendize the discussion April 14. Olbert had hoped to have
the hearing as soon as Monday night but said there was no
other support on the council for as quick a turnaround.
Councilman Ron Collins said he denitely agrees the
public talk has to happen but called Monday too soon and
isnt sure yet on April 14. The San Carlos Elementary
School District held its own special meeting Thursday night
to discuss the swap proposal and Collins said he wanted to
let that play out and give staff time to ready details before

Marina/Park in South San Francisco will be looking toward
contracting a specialist. The San Mateo County Civil Grand
Jury recommend it hire a mediator after being investigated

Supervisor throws
hat in ring for Assembly
San Mateo County Supervisor Rich
Gordon ended weeks of speculation
about his political future the week of
March 21, 2009, by announcing plans
to run for the 21st District state
Assembly seat.
The bottom line is the state is so
broken that I just feel somebodys got
to step up and x it, said Gordon, cit-
ing his mix of local, regional and state
experience as reasons why hes the
person to do just that.
Gordon, of Menlo Park, is a third-
generation Californian born and raised
in San Mateo County.
Gordons announcement
came on the heels of those
by Palo Alto
Councilwoman Yoriko
Kishimoto and community
college district board member
Hal Plotkin, both of Santa Clara
County.
Kindergarten increase raises
housing, staffing questions
Approximately 70 more kinder-
garten students than anticipated
enrolled in the San Carlos Elementary
School District for the next year, it
was reported the week of March 21,
2009.
The growth was good news for the
district, which is paid per pupil.
Whether extra classrooms will be
needed to house the students was
unknown. The district Board of
Trustees had just tentatively approved
a plan to increase class sizes from 20
to 22. If that stays in place, additional
space may not be needed.
Stocks fall, log gains
The week of March 21, 2009, Wall
Street barely closed out its rst two-
week gain in almost a year.
The Dow rose 14 percent over seven
trading days. One reason for the mar-
kets pause: It simply ran out of upbeat
economic and corporate news the past
two days.
The major indexes did eke out a gain
for that week, jolted by the
Feds plans to buy hundreds of
billions of dollars worth of
debt securities in hopes of
reviving lending. Stocks initially
jumped on Wednesday of that week
when the plans were announced but
then fell Thursday and Friday as
investors became concerned that the
huge injection of money into the
economy could cause ination.
Other markets had a tumultuous week
as well. In just two days, the dollar fell
5 percent versus the euro and 3 percent
versus the yen, and oil prices soared 7
percent Thursday above $51 a barrel to
the highest level this year.
Many analysts believed stocks were
due for some retrenchment.
You get a run-up like that youre
going to get a pullback, said Doreen
Mogavero, president of the New York
oor brokerage Mogavero, Lee & Co.
The Dow industrials fell 122.42, or
1.7 percent, to 7,278.38 on Friday of
that week.

With the new jail poised to open next
year, San Mateo County is ready to issue up
to $215 million of lease revenue bonds to
nance the project east of Highway 101 in
Redwood City.
The total includes approximately $165
million for the overall construction costs of
design, construction, installing equipment
and site remediation, $16.3 million to
nance reimbursement of the $17 million
already spent purchasing the 4.95-acre
Maple Street location and roughly $19.6
million for interest payments to investors
during construction.
The Board of Supervisors at its Tuesday
morning meeting will consider signing off
on the bond proposal by County Manager
John Maltbie.
Based on current market conditions, the
total debt service will be approximately
$284 million over the term of the bonds
with the highest annual debt estimated at
$27.1 million in fiscal year 2016-17,
Maltbie stated in a report to the board.
After that point, the debt will drop each
year from approximately $15.3 million by
scal year 2021-22 down to $1.8 million
by scal year 2036-37.
The maximum term of the bonds is 33
years with a true interest cost of 5.5 percent
yearly. Changing the terms for any reason
in the future requires board approval.
The Maple Street Correctional Center is
scheduled to open in mid-2015 with 576
beds for both men and women on three sto-
ries and 40 feet of unnished space known
as a warm shell which can be developed in
the future if the need arises. Future buildout
can be up to 832 beds.
Operations costs of the new facility are
estimated at $40 million annually.
The Board of Supervisors meets 9 a.m.

A 47-year-old Pacifica man accused of
drugging his girlfriends teen daughter with
sleeping medication, including a pill hidden
in a bowl of ice cream, so that he could fon-
dle and rape her, will stand trial.
Paul David Messersmith was held to
answer on all ve felony charges after a pre-
liminary hearing Thursday. He is charged
with forcible rape, rape by using an intoxi-
cating substance, sexual penetration and

Couple ordered to trial for
burglaries of PetSmart customers homes
Awoman accused of using her job at a San Carlos PetSmart
store to help commit multiple residential
burglaries in San Mateo County and her
accomplice boyfriend have been ordered
to stand trial for the crimes.
The couple, Ashley Kirk and Juan
Ortega-Ramos, both 24-year-old San
Jose residents with alleged gang aflia-
tions, were arrested in Discovery Bay in
January after a ve-month investigation
into burglaries at vacant homes.
They had already been arrested in
September for a San Mateo County burgla-
ry, but charges were dropped in that case.
Kirk allegedly used her knowledge of
customers who were out of town through
her job boarding dogs at PetSmart to ran-
sack the empty homes and take items
including electronics, jewelry and, in
one instance, a silver Porsche 991S from
a Portola Valley home, according to pros-
ecutors.
The couple had pleaded not guilty to
more than a dozen burglary and car theft
charges, along with gang allegations.
Ortega-Ramos is believed to be a Norteo gangmember
and Kirk his associate, according to prosecutors.
After a two-day preliminary hearing ended Wednesday in
San Mateo County Superior Court, the couple was ordered to
stand trial on all charges. Adate will be set for the trial at a
court proceeding on April 3, according to San Mateo County
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
If convicted of all charges, the live-in boyfriend and girl-
friend face more than 60 years in prison, he said.
The two remain in custody on $500,000 bail.
Gas station clerk robbed at gunpoint
Police are looking for a man who robbed a gas station at

handgun at the clerk, according to the South San Francisco
Police Department. The suspect demanded money and left the
store with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to police.
He is described as Hispanic, 30 to 40 years old, 5 feet 8
inches tall and weighing about 165 pounds. He was last
seen wearing a dark and light plaid shirt with a light hood-
ie, dark pants, black and white shoes and black gloves,

SACRAMENTO California is the
top target in the U.S. for international
criminal enterprises that operate from
safe havens in Eastern Europe, Africa
and China, according to a report
released Thursday.
Along with trafficking in drugs,
guns and people, criminals are also
turning to cybercrime to target
wealthy, innovative businesses and
nancial institutions in the state, the
report by the state attorney general
says.
We know that they use technology
directly in a way that perpetuates and
commits crimes, in particular the
crimes of hacking and data breaches
and malware, California Attorney
General Kamala Harris said as she
released the report in Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles region is particular-
ly vulnerable to digital piracy, she
said, because it produces much of the
nations movies and other mass-mar-
ket media.
Harris said the 181-page report is the
rst to outline the effects of interna-
tional criminal organizations on
California residents and businesses.
It says California leads all states in
the number of computer systems
hacked or infected by malware; victims
of Internet crimes and identity theft;
and the amount of nancial losses suf-
fered as a result of online crimes.
The report says many of the breach-
es have been tied to criminal organiza-
tions operating out of locations
including Russia, Ukraine, China and
Nigeria.
Their impact is tremendous, in the
hundreds of millions of dollars from
small business, mom and pop opera-
tions, who lose their very existence to
a nancial crime, to a scheme thats
being origined out of Romania, out of
Egypt, out of Israel, out of parts well
off of our shores, Los Angeles police
Assistant Chief Michel R. Moore said
at the news conference.
Californias gross domestic product
of $2 trillion along with its signi-
cant foreign trade activity and its bor-
der with Mexico also make the state a
target for international money-laun-
dering schemes. The report estimates
that more than $30 billion is laundered
through the state economy each year.
Some money is filtered through
legitimate businesses or by using vir-
tual currencies such as bitcoin. But the
report says backpacks and duffel bags
stuffed with cash have been seized
more frequently since Mexico began
toughening its money-laundering laws
in 2010.

State Sen. Leland Yee, D-
San Francisco/San Mateo, was
honored with the Public Ofci al
Award by the Northern
Cal i forni a Chapter of t he
Soci et y of Prof e s s i onal
Journal i st s last night for his
opposition to efforts to weaken the California Public
Records Act by loosening disclosure requirements for
local governments.
State Sen. Jerry Hi l l , D-San Mateo, amended
legislation to require nonprots that pay for trips taken
by members of the Legislature and other state and local
ofcials elected in California to disclose to the Fair
Pol i ti cal Practi ces Commi ssi on (FPPC) the names
of donors that funded the travel.
Currently, nonprots do not have to disclose the source
of travel funding, preventing the public from knowing
who was behind the gift to the elected ofcial, according
to Hills ofce.
Hills provision was amended into Senat e Bi l l 831,
which he introduced earlier this year to modernize
Cal i forni as 1974 Pol i ti cal Reform Act . The bill,
among other restrictions, would ban elected ofcials from
moving campaign funds to nonprots owned or operated
by members of their families, according to Hills ofce.
Because it makes changes to the voter-approved
California Political Reform Act, governing disclosure of
political money, SB 831 requires a two-thirds vote of the
Legislature, according to Hills ofce.

SAN FRANCISCO A federal
appeals court on Thursday upheld
Californias law requiring people
arrested for felonies to submit samples
of their DNAto police.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
in San Francisco on Thursday said a
2013 U.S. Supreme Court ruling
upholding a similar law in Maryland
applies to California.
At issue is a law passed by voters in
2004 requiring that all people arrested
in California on suspicion of commit-
ting a felony supply a DNA sample to
police by way of a cheek swab. State
Attorney General Kamala Harris and
other law enforcement ofcials say the
law is a powerful tool used to solve
thousands of cold cases. The DNA
sample is loaded into a state database
and compared against samples collect-
ed at crime scenes.
The American Civil Liberties Union
objects to DNA collection because not
all persons arrested are charged and
removing the sample from the database
is a lengthy and complicated process.
The 9th Circuit appeared ready to
strike down the law after hearing a rst
round of arguments in 2012. But before
the 9th Circuit could rule, the U.S.
Supreme Court, on a 5-4 vote, upheld a
similar but narrower law in
Maryland.
The high court ruled in the Maryland
case that taking a cheek swab for DNA
was akin to ngerprinting all those
who are arrested and was not overly
intrusive.
The ACLU also argued that some
California arrestees arent covered by
the high court ruling because
Marylands law is slightly different and
covers only burglaries and violent
crimes.
The 9th Circuit said that argument
needs to be made before a trial court.

SAN BERNARDINO The National
Park Service says a proposed 6.5-
square-mile solar development about a
half-mile from the Mojave National
Preserve would harm wildlife and
should be built elsewhere.
Preserve Superintendent Stephanie
Dubois submitted a letter critical of the
plan to the U.S. Bureau of Land
Management, which oversees the pub-
lic land where the Soda Mountain solar
project is planned, the Riverside
Press-Enterprise reported Wednesday.
The eight-page letter accuses the
BLM of failing to adequately examine
the projects potential to have a nega-
tive impact on groundwater and threat-
ened and endangered species. The proj-
ect would be detrimental to the desert
tortoise, bighorn sheep and protected
birds in the area and could reduce water
supplies that support one of the few
populations of an endangered sh, she
wrote.
We urge the BLM to reconsider the
potential for this project to be sited on
other BLM lands, private lands, or
other degraded lands where renewable
energy projects would present fewer
adverse impacts to natural and cultural
resources, Dubois wrote in her March
3 letter.
Asubsidiary of Bechtel wants to put
solar panels on both sides of Interstate
15 just outside the northwest corner of
the preserve in the San Bernardino
Mountains.

Police:Teen bypasses guard,
reaches World Trade Center spire
NEW YORK A teenage thrill-chaser
slipped through a fence, eluded a security
guard and climbed to the
top of 1 World Trade
Center, authorities said
Thursday as concerns
swirled about a seemingly
audacious breach at what
is supposed to be one of
the worlds most secure
sites.
Justin Casquejo, a 16-
year-old described by a
friend as an adventure-
seeker who loves to climb precarious places,
spent about two hours early Sunday atop the
symbolic and unnished 1,776-foot tower,
authorities said. Hes not accused of doing
any damage, but the alleged escapade stirred
what-ifs about the notion of someone being
able to inltrate the nations tallest sky-
scraper.
Obviously, it was shocking and trou-
bling, said Mayor Bill de Blasio, and I
dont know how possibly it could have hap-
pened.
Symantec terminates
CEO Steve Bennett
NEW YORK Security software maker
Symantec red President and CEO Steve
Bennetts employment and named director
Michael Brown as his temporary replace-
ment.
Its the second time in less than two years
that Symantec has red its CEO. Bennett
became president and CEO in July 2012,
when Enrique Salem was red after three years
in charge of the company. The Mountain
View company behind Norton Antivirus soft-
ware did not cite a precise reason for
Bennetts ouster Thursday.
This considered decision was the result of
an ongoing deliberative process, and not pre-
cipitated by any event or impropriety,
Symantec Chairman Dan Schulman said in a
press release.

WASHINGTON Adding heat on the CIA,
the Senate will investigate a computer net-
work that contained a still-secret review of
U.S. terror interrogations that led to dueling
criminal referrals to the Justice Department
and a dramatic collapse in relations between
the nations spy agencies and the lawmak-
ers entrusted with their oversight.
In letters to the heads of the CIA and
Justice Department, Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid said the CIAs decision to search
the Senate intelligence committees net-
work and computers without approval was
absolutely indefensible and carried seri-
ous implications for the separation of pow-
ers between the executive and legislative
branches.
Reid said he had instructed his Senates
chief cop to examine how Senate staffers
obtained an internal CIA review, which the
agency accused them of improperly copy-
ing, although Reid described the CIAs
alleged monitoring of Senate computers as
more serious.
Meanwhile, legislative aides said the
Senate intelligence committee will push
soon for declassication of parts or all of its
6,000-page report on the agencys war on
terror interrogation tactics at secret sites,
the starting point of the entire dispute.
The parameters of the sergeant-at-armss
investigation are unclear and its unknown
what cooperation hell receive from the
CIA, which has been locked in a bitter rift
with the intelligence committees chair-
man, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. The
agency accuses committee staffers of ille-
gally accessing certain documents;
Feinstein and other senators say the CIA
broke the law by monitoring its computer
use and deleting les.
To my knowledge, the CIA has produced
no evidence to support its claims that
Senate committee staff who have no techni-
cal training somehow hacked into the CIAs
highly secure classied networks, an allega-
tion that appears on its face to be patently
absurd, Reid said in a letter, dated
Wednesday, to CIA Director John Brennan.
A previous review, he said, appears to cor-
roborate committee ndings and contradict
CIAclaims.
CIA spokesman Dean Boyd said the
agency was committed to resolving its dif-
ferences with senators. The CIA, he said,
believes in the necessity of effective,
strong and bipartisan congressional over-
sight.

Sarah Curtis-Fawley will have to offer
insurance to her workers at Pacic Pie Co.
because of the health care overhaul, and the
estimated $100,000 cost means she may
have to raise prices or postpone opening a
third restaurant.
On the other end of the spectrum, the
owner of a 1-800-Got-Junk? franchise near
Philadelphia figures hell save money
because his 12 workers now can shop for
coverage on public insurance exchanges
created by the overhaul.
For an employer at my level, its a win,
said Eric Blum, franchisee of the junk
removal service.
The Affordable Care Act, which aims to
provide coverage for millions, is playing to
decidedly mixed reviews in corporate
America. Its impact on companies varies
greatly, depending on factors such as a
rms number of employees and whether it
already provides health insurance.
Some businesses are dealing with admin-
istrative hassles or rising costs, while oth-
ers worry about the laws requirement that
mid-sized and big companies offer coverage
or face penalties. But the law hasnt meant
big changes for every company. And some
small businesses now can offer employees a
benet they wouldnt be able to afford with-
out the law.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the largest U.S. pri-
vate employer, expects $330 million in
additional health care costs this year in part
because company leaders think more
employees are signing up for its insurance
to meet the laws requirement that most
Americans have coverage. The retailer cov-
ers about 1.1 million employees and
dependents, and enrollment in its health
plan will climb by about 100,000 this year.
Some companies that havent provided
insurance are preparing for the requirement
that rms with 50 or more full-time employ-
ees offer coverage or face a penalty.

Thank you thank
you thank you.
This is what I hear
over and over, year
after year, from
families that we
serve. Either
verbally or in hand-written cards or letters
families say thank you: Thank for your
help; Thank you for all you have done to
make this process easier; Thank you for
making this final tribute to my mother one
which will be fondly remembered; Thank
you for your advice; Thank you for being
there for us at a time we needed you most;
Thank you for making it all easy for us;
Thank you for being a friend, etc. To hear
Thank you time and time again is a
confirmation for me that our Chapel of the
Highlands crew is doing their best to serve
families whove been through a death, in an
appropriate and professional manner, and
that we are doing the right thing in caring
for families during a difficult situation, in
turn making it more of a comfort for them.
Normally saying Youre welcome is
the correct response. Youre welcome, or
You are welcome, can be taken a number
of different ways. Generally it means you
are always a welcome guest. It can also be
taken as a blessing meaning you wish
wellness on the person who thanked you.
Wishing wellness or health to anyone is a
nice gesture. In recent years though we all
have witnessed the term Youre welcome
being substituted with Thank you back at
the person who is doing the thanking. This
is OK, but saying Youre welcome first
is taken as a hospitable and warm gesture.
Now that Thank you and Youre
welcome have been established, I would
like to say thank you back to the families we
serve: Thank you for supporting the Chapel
of the Highlands. Thank you for your
faithful patronage. Because of you we have
been able to continue with our high
standards and excellent level of service for
many years, since 1952. Thank you to those
families who weve helped so many times in
the past. Thank you to the new families
whove discovered that we offer them
respect and provide the dignified care that
their loved one deserves.
Your support, and the continued interest
from the community in our service, is what
keeps us going strong and available when
we are needed. Our costs have always been
considered fair, and the funds taken in for
our services are also very much appreciated.
Those Chapel of the Highlands funds along
with our support sifts back to the community
in different ways. Donations to local causes,
along with the donation of time through
membership in service organizations such as
Lions, I.C.F., Historical Society, Chamber
of Commerce, etc. is natural for us. Giving
back as a volunteer via these groups helps in
binding us with our neighbors, together
creating a better community for the future.
All in all there are many ways to say
Thank you. Doing so in a variety of ways
can create a circle of gratitude, in turn
making our community a better place.
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

KABUL, Afghanistan Four gun-
men with pistols stuffed into their
socks attacked a luxury hotel frequent-
ed by foreigners in Afghanistans cap-
ital Thursday, just hours after militants
killed 11 people in an audacious
assault on a police station in eastern
Afghanistan.
All the assailants were killed in both
standoffs, but made their point:
Afghan forces face a huge challenge in
securing upcoming elections in what
will be a major test of their abilities as
foreign troops wind down their combat
mission at the end of this year.
The attacks show the Taliban are fol-
lowing through on their threat to use
violence to the disrupt April 5 vote,
which will be the first democratic
transfer of power since the 2001 U.S.-
led invasion that ousted the Islamic
militant movement. President Hamid
Karzai is constitutionally barred from
seeking a third term.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah
Mujahid claimed responsibility for the
assault on the Serena hotel and the ear-
lier attack in Jalalabad, an economic
hub near the border with Pakistan.
Our people, if they decide to attack
any place, they can do it, he said.
The violence began before dawn
Thursday when a suicide bomber blew
up his explosives-laden car outside the
police station in Jalalabad, located
near the palatial residence of
Nangarhar provincial Gov. Attaullah
Ludin.
Six gunmen rushed into the station
as two more bombs exploded nearby
one hidden in a motorized rickshaw
and another in a vegetable cart.
That prompted a erce battle that
lasted more than four hours, with
Afghan police and soldiers chasing
gunmen down the street amid gunre
and smoke billowing into the blue
sky.

BRUSSELS The European Union
on Thursday slapped travel bans and
asset freezes on 12 more people, clos-
ing in on President Vladimir Putins
inner circle to punish him in the esca-
lating crisis over the Russian annexa-
tion of the Crimea peninsula.
The move brought the number of
Russians and Ukrainians facing EU
sanctions to 33, and French President
Francois Hollande said it included a lot
of crossover with the people the United
States is targeting with similar meas-
ures.
We added 12 people, in concert with
the Americans, Hollande said.
The 28-nation bloc said the names of
the sanctioned would be published
Friday. Some of them are really high-
ranking, said EU President Herman
Van Rompuy.
The EU leaders also tasked its execu-
tive Commission to prepare a raft of
economic sanctions that could be
imposed if one of the biggest political
crises in Europe since the Cold War
worsens further.
We cover all economic areas, said
Van Rompuy, implying it could include
an arms embargo against Russia.
As Europe got tougher, President
Barack Obama announced the United
States is also levying a new round of
sanctions on individuals in Russia.
Russia hit back, imposing entry bans
on nine U.S. lawmakers and ofcials in
response to Washingtons sanctions.
President Dalia Grybauskaite of
Lithuania said the EU was closely
behind the United States.
It is already time to target the close
circle of Putin, she said.
Beyond punishing Russia, the EU
also wanted to show backing for
Ukraine, which lost Crimea to Moscow
on Tuesday.
British Prime Minster David
Cameron said the two-day summit
would also focus on strengthening
Ukraines edgling government, call-
ing on the 28 EU nations need to bol-
ster the new Ukrainian authorities with
political commitments and economic
aid.
Ukraines Prime Minister Arseniy
Yatsenyuk will sign a political agree-
ment Friday with EU leaders, underscor-
ing Europes commitment to the new
leadership in Kiev.
Speaking to France-24 television
from Brussels, he called the agreement
the rst big tremendous step to make
Ukraine really a part of big Europe.
We do understand that this is only
the rst step, Yatsenyuk said. But
this will pave the way to real reforms
... that my country urgently needs.

VILNIUS, Lithuania Issuing an outright warning to
Moscow, Vice President Joe Biden declared Wednesday the
United States will respond to any
aggression against its NATO allies, as
Russias neighbors looked warily to
the escalating crisis in nearby
Ukraine.
Standing side by side with a pair of
Baltic leaders in Vilnius, Lithuania,
Biden said the U.S. was absolutely
committed to defending its allies,
adding that President Barack Obama
plans to seek concrete commitments
from NATO members to ensure the
alliance can safeguard its collective security.
In a jab at Russia, he said the U.S. stands resolutely with
Baltic states in support of the Ukrainian people against
Russian aggression.
Russia cannot escape the fact that the world is chang-
ing and rejecting outright their behavior, Biden said,
after meeting in Vilnius with Lithuanian President Dalia
Grybauskaite and Latvian President Andris Berzins.
Bidens comments came at the close of a two-day trip to
Lithuania and Poland with a two-pronged theme: Sending
a stern message to Russian President Vladimir Putin that
the U.S. wont abide Russian intervention in Ukraine, and
reassuring fretful NATO allies that the U.S. and others will
come to their defense if necessary.
Were in this with you, together, Biden said.
Amid the tough talk from Biden and the Baltic leaders,
Russias annexation of Crimea was increasingly looking
like a foregone conclusion.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia
Search planes ew out of Australia
on Friday to scour rough seas in
one of the remotest places on
Earth for objects that may be from
the missing Malaysia Airlines
plane.
In what one ofcial called the
best lead of the nearly 2-week-
old aviation mystery, a satellite
detected two large objects oating
off the southwest coast of
Australia about halfway to the des-
olate islands of the Antarctic.
The area in the southern Indian
Ocean is so remote is takes aircraft
longer to y there four hours
than it allows for the search.
The discovery raised new hope
of nding the vanished jet and sent
another emotional jolt to the fam-
ilies of the 239 people aboard.
A search Thursday with four
planes in cloud and rain found
nothing, and Australian authori-
ties said early Friday efforts were
resuming with the rst of ve air-
craft a Royal Australian Air
Force P3 Orion leaving at dawn
for the area about 2,300 kilome-
ters (1,400 miles) from western
Australia.
A civilian Gulfstream jet and a
second Orion were to depart later
Friday morning and a third Orion
was due to y out in the early after-
noon to scour more than 23,000
square kilometers (8,880 square
miles) of ocean.
A U.S. Navy P-8 Poseidon air-
craft was scheduled to leave the
base at about 4 p.m. (0600 GMT),
but like the other planes, it will
have enough fuel for only two to
three hours of search time before
returning to Perth.
A New Zealand P-3 Orion plane
took part in the unsuccessful
search Thursday, and Mike
Yardley, an air commodore with
New Zealands air force, said the
plane was forced to duck below
thick clouds and fog to a very low
altitude of 60 meters (200 feet),
hampering the operation.
But Yardley was optimistic that
the searchers will nd the objects.
We will nd it Im sure about
that piece of it. The only reason
we wouldnt nd it was that it has
sunk, he said of the large uniden-
tied object spotted by the satel-
lite.
Ive been on these missions
before when its taken a few days
to come across it, he said.
Warren Truss, Australias acting
prime minister while Tony Abbott
is overseas, told Australian
Broadcasting Corp. that weather
conditions in the search area were
poor and may get worse.

Disappointed
Editor,
I was very disappointed to learn
that the city of San Mateo and various
individuals are still investing time
and money to shutter the San Mateo
Drive 7-Eleven (Embattled 7-Eleven
may close its doors in the March 18
edition of the Daily Journal).
People are going to toast the fact
that hard-working people who want
to work are going to lose their jobs. I
also nd it intriguing that when the
location was Hilltop Market, owned
by individuals for numerous years, no
one had a problem with that. Hilltop
Market sold alcohol while 7-Eleven
does not. Ive shopped there many
times and never experienced the
unpleasantries Ive heard described by
various neighbors. Its too bad the
personal agendas of a few have to
affect the lives of many.

I have a dream too
Editor,
Awise man once said that he had a
dream that his four little children
would one day live in a nation where
they would not be judged by the color
of their skin but by the content of
their character. I thought of these
words when I witnessed something
quite extraordinary this week in the
California Legislature.
Great pressure was placed on the
Democratic supermajority to shelve
legislation that would have placed
afrmative action back on the ballot.
The legislation was attempting to
overturn part of Proposition 209
which passed in 1996 but was vehe-
mently opposed by various ethnic
groups. It was steamrolling right
along when suddenly it came to a
complete stop. What happened? Well
this is where it gets interesting. It
turns out that a certain minority
group felt it would greatly reduce their
childrens chances at a quality higher
education in California. For the rst
time, a minority group came out
against legislation that would allow
race to be a factor in college admis-
sions. It took this particular group to
come out against racial preference
policies before anyone in our
Legislature reconsidered the measure.
I guess its OK to discriminate
against the other guys kid, but when
it negatively affects your kid, stop
the legislation. We are either going
to be a color-blind society or we are
not. You cant have it both ways.
Think about it, how can an education
system that is greatly benetting one
minority group be failing another?
Thats the real question.

T
he damage to world order from
Vladimir Putins invasion of
Crimea will echo for years,
but one of the biggest casualties
deserves more attention: the cause of
nuclear nonproliferation. One lesson
to the world of Russias cost-free
carve-up of Ukraine is that nations
that abandon their nuclear arsenals do
so at their own peril.
This story goes back to the end of
the Cold War and the collapse of the
Soviet Union. Russias nuclear arse-
nal was spread among the former
Soviet republics that had become
independent nations. Ukraine had
some 1,800 nuclear weapons, includ-
ing short-range tactical weapons, air-
launched cruise missiles and bombers.
Only Russia and the United States had
more at the time, and Ukraines arse-
nal was both modern and highly sur-
vivable in the event of a rst strike.
The United States was rightly con-
cerned that these warheads could end
up in the wrong hands, and the
Clinton administration made control-
ling them a foreign-policy priority.
The result was the 1994 Budapest
Memorandum on Security Assurances
in which Ukraine agreed to sign the
Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and
return its nuclear arsenal to Russia in
exchange for security assurances by
Russia, the United States and United
Kingdom. Those included promises to
respect Ukraines independence and
sovereignty within its existing bor-
ders, as well as refraining from threat-
ening or using force against Ukraine.
Contrast that with the current cri-
sis. President Barack Obama and
British Prime Minister David
Cameron have blasted Russia for its
clear violation of the Budapest
accord, but those U.S. and U.K. assur-
ances have been exposed as meaning-
less. That lesson isnt lost on
Ukraine, but it also wont be lost on
the rest of the world.
Had Kiev kept its weapons rather
than giving them up in return for
parchment promises, would Vladimir
Putin have been so quick to invade
Crimea two weeks ago? Its impossi-
ble to know, but its likely it would
have at least given him more pause.
Ukraines fate is likely to make the
worlds nuclear rogues, such as Iran
and North Korea, even less likely to
give up their nuclear facilities or
weapons. As important, it is likely to
make non-nuclear powers and even
close U.S. allies wonder if they can
still rely on Americas security guar-
antees.
Perhaps the greatest irony is that
President Obama has made nuclear
nonproliferation one of his highest
priorities.
On present trend Obamas legacy
wont be new limits on the spread of
nuclear weapons. Instead hell be the
president who presided over, and been
a major cause of, a new era of global
nuclear proliferation.
To underscore the point, next week
Obama will travel to The Hague to
preach the virtues of nonproliferation
at his third global Nuclear Security
Summit. Also expected: Vladimir
Putin.
Ukraine and nuclear proliferation
What to call the city
M
uch has been said about San Francisco
Chronicle writer Peter Hartlaubs recent
piece about the word Frisco when referring
to that city atop our Peninsula. Seems Hartlaub wasnt
just going against the grain, he really had something
to say!
And by the letters appearing in the Chronicle lately,
the topic, and the word itself, certainly are spark plugs
for revving up opinions. Some say one should never
ever use the nickname Frisco, others say its not so bad
since it had its origin in the Barbary Coast days.
Herb Caen, that justifi-
ably beloved columnist
from Sacramento, gave a
nod to those Barbary
Coast days when he tip-
tapped his iconic col-
umn, Dont Call It
Frisco and actually said
it was because of its
roots in those days that
the name should not be
used. The rationale was
simple, San Francisco
the name had an elegance
to it, and for him, San
Francisco was an elegant
city.
Is it still? Sure, in
places. And also in my
memory. When I was younger, going to the city meant
going downtown. And not wearing white shoes. When
we moved down the Peninsula, going to the city still
meant going downtown. And not wearing white shoes.
That city may be no more but there are remnants, ves-
tiges like those telephone nooks you still find in some
homes.
But outside of that, its also rag-tag and strange, with
tension about newcomers from those who were new-
comers just a few years ago. Have people already for-
gotten about what the dot-com boom did to the city?
And where exactly were those who protest in front of
Google buses when the first high-tech Gold Rush sky-
rocketed rents and forced longtime residents out? Could
they not galvanize in time before the bust meant press-
board furniture with free signs on it dotted formerly
low-income areas of the city when the techies lost their
jobs and moved elsewhere?
All Im saying is that city constantly reinvents itself
while maintaining a respect for its past, and thats part
of its allure.
So is it San Francisco? Or is it Frisco? Elegant or
rough-and-tumble? Maybe a bit of both. But I, for one,
wont be calling it Frisco. Why not just call it what
everyone actually calls it? The city. And you dont even
have to capitalize the c.
***
Speaking of nicknames, its time to once-and-for-all
do away with the disparaging moniker Deadwood City.
Anyone who has been there lately should know the term
is quite the opposite of what is happening there. Opera
in the plaza on occasion. Abustling cinema crowd. New
restaurants. Alively Fox Theatre. And more construc-
tion activity you can shake a stick at (though I dont
suggest trying that, the county lockup is nearby and
you dont want to tempt placement there). So what do
you say? Whats the new nickname?
***
It was with great sadness that I learned of the recent
death of Jack Russell, longtime newspaperman and the
first president of the Peninsula Press Club, now the San
Francisco Peninsula Press Club, of which I am a board
member.
Russell was the former editor of the San Mateo Times
in its halcyon days in the middle part of the 20th centu-
ry. At press club meetings, he always made a point to
pull me aside and register a few comments about our
coverage and reporters. He appreciated the hard work we
put in, and also recognized that we were making a go of
it here at the Daily Journal when others were failing.
His grasp of the issues we were reporting showed he
paid close attention to our coverage and I always appre-
ciated that especially from someone who had been in
the business so long.
He was dedicated to the club, knew its history and
purpose and appreciated the nuances of the craft we call
journalism.
Im lucky to have known him.

NEWYORK The stock market got
a bounce on the rst day of spring.
Signs that the U.S. economy is
emerging from a winter chill drove
major stock indexes higher Thursday.
Investors were encouraged by an
increase in manufacturing and a rise in
a key index of economic indicators.
The market had slumped the day
before, when Federal Reserve Chair
Janet Yellen suggested that the central
bank could start raising interest rates
sooner than many investors had
expected.
The economy is likely to have a
good bounce in the springtime, said
Peter Cardillo, chief market econo-
mist at Rockwell Global Capital. The
market is reacting to the good eco-
nomic news.
The Standard & Poors 500 index
rose 11.24 points, or 0.6 percent, to
1,872.01. The Dow Jones industrial
average gained 108.88 points, or 0.7
percent, to 16,331.05. The Nasdaq
composite climbed 11.68 points, or
0.3 percent, to 4,319.29.
The S&P 500 came within a fraction
of a point of wiping out all of its loss-
es from a day earlier, when it dropped
11.48 points.
Stocks started the day lower, extend-
ing their losses from Wednesday, as
investors mulled comments the day
before from Yellen, who set the stage
for a possible interest rate hike by the
middle of next year. The Fed on
Wednesday also dropped its previous
position of saying it would consider
raising interest rates once the unem-
ployment rate declined to 6.5 percent.
Unemployment is currently 6.7 per-
cent.
Higher interest rates could slow the
economy by raising the cost of bor-
rowing money. That could hold com-
panies back from borrowing to
expand their businesses or discourage
consumers from taking out loans such
as mortgages. At the same time, a
decision by the Fed to raise rates
would indicate the central bank thinks
the economy is getting stronger.
The market turned higher in mid-
morning trading following news that
a measure of the U.S. economys
health rose in February by the largest
amount in three months. That sug-
gests growth will accelerate following
a severe winter.
The Conference Boards index of
leading indicators increased 0.5 per-
cent following a slight 0.1 percent
rise in January and a 0.1 percent
decline in December.
The Federal Reserve Bank of
Philadelphia said separately that man-
ufacturing rebounded in that region in
March as new orders increased.
Microsoft was among the big gain-
ers on Thursday. The software compa-
nys stock climbed $1.06, or 2.7 per-
cent, to $40.33 after analysts at
Morgan Stanley said a rumored plan to
make a version of its Ofce software
available for iPad devices could gener-
ate $1.2 billion in annual revenue.
3-D printing companies were
among the losers after ExOne reported
a fourth quarter loss late Wednesday
and said its revenue fell. ExOne slid
$4.35, or 10 percent, to $39.40.
Other 3D-printer companies, includ-
ing Stratasys and 3D Systems, also
fell.
Stocks have become more volatile
this year as Fed policy makers have
started reducing their economic stimu-
lus, and investors have fretted whether
the economy is strong enough to
maintain its recovery without the cen-
tral banks support.
The stock market is in the sixth year
of a bull market and has risen 172 per-
cent since March 2009. That rise has
been aided by the Feds stimulus,
which has strengthened the economy
by keeping interest rates low.
As the Fed cuts back on stimulus,
investors are splitting into roughly
two camps, said Omar Aguilar, Chief
Investment Ofcer at Charles Schwab.

NEWYORK Gum seems as appealing as
that sticky wad on the bottom of a shoe these
days.
Its not that Americans dont ever enjoy a
stick of Trident or Orbit, the two most popu-
lar brands. They just arent as crazy about
chomping away on the stuff as they once
were, with U.S. sales tumbling 11 percent
over the past four years.
No one in the industry can pinpoint a sin-
gle factor thats causing the decline the
theories include an unwillingness to shell out
$2 or more for a pack in the bad economy or
that advertising veered too far from underlin-
ing gums cavity-ghting benets. But the
biggest reason may be that people simply
have more to chew on.
From designer mints to fruit chews, candy
companies have invented plenty of other
ways to get a sugar x or battle bad breath and
anxiety. The alternatives dont come with
gums unpleasant characteristics either, like
the question of whether to spit out or gulp the
remains. Theyre also less likely to annoy
parents, co-workers or romantic interests.
You talk to someone and theyre just
chomping on gum, said Matt Smith, a 46-
year-old who lives Albany, N.Y. and hates
gum so much he refers to it only by its rst
letter.

WASHINGTON Anew study documents
the bleak plight of Americans who have
been unemployed for more than six
months: Just 11 percent of them, on aver-
age, will ever regain steady full-time work.
The findings by three Princeton
University economists show the extent to
which the long-term unemployed have
been shunted to the sidelines of the U.S.
economy since the Great Recession.
The long-term jobless number 3.8 mil-
lion, or 37 percent of all unemployed
Americans.
The long-term unemployed are more
than twice as likely to stop looking for a
job than to find one, according to the
paper co-written by Alan Krueger, former-
ly President Barack Obamas chief eco-
nomic adviser. And when they exit the
labor force, the long-term unemployed
tend to say they no longer want a job.

Carlmont pitcher Rebecca Faulkner held Hillsdale to just one run on three hits in the Scots
3-1 win Thursday afternoon in SanMateo. It was Carlmonts PAL Bay Division opener.
By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
At the outset of the year, it looked like
Carlmont softball was going to walk all over
everybody this season.
With the Scots outscoring opponents 45-2
through their rst ve games, superstar left-
hander Rebecca Faulkner was clearly deal-
ing. She simply wasnt getting the opportu-
nity to lock up with opposing pitchers.
Fast forward to Carlmonts Peninsula
Athletic League Bay Division opener
Thursday and the tone had changed dramati-
cally for the Scots. In the circle though, it
was the same unappable Faulkner still
dealing, as always.
Carlmont (1-0 in Bay, 7-2 overall) scored
a dramatic comeback win 3-1 at Hillsdale
Thursday and Faulkner was the driving force.
The senior allowed just one run on three hits
with all three Knights hits coming in the
second inning.
Hillsdale has always been a top competi-
tor to us just because weve been rivals for a
long time, Faulkner said. So whenever we
come out we always give a hundred percent
because we know its going to be a tough
game no matter what.
Hillsdale (1-1, 5-1) played it tough by
jumping out to an early 1-0 lead. And for a
time it seemed Knights junior starter Tori
Pierucci was going to be untouchable. At one
point, the right-hander set down 16 of 17
batters. But it was the one batter Pierucci did-
nt retire that changed the complexion of the
game.
After Pierucci set down 10 consecutive bat-
ters, Carlmont snapped the streak in the fth
when junior Kirra Loucks powered an oppo-
site-eld bomb to right to tie it. Then with
one out in the seventh, the Scots notched
four hits to seize the lead 3-1 in dramatic
fashion.
We have a great team, Faulkner said.
They always pick me up when Im feeling
down and then they keep going. They always
have my back.

Vee Sanford banked in a layup with
3.8 seconds remaining to lift
11th-seeded Dayton to a 60-59
victory over sixth-seeded Ohio
State in the second round of the
NCAAtournament on Thursday.
Sanford nished with 10 points,
while Dyshawn Pierre led the
Flyers (24-10) with 12 points in a
matchup of Ohio schools separat-
ed by about 75 miles. Dayton
advances to play the winner
between third-seeded Syracuse and
14th-seeded Western Michigan in

Saturday.
The Buckeyes (25-10) had one
last chance to pull out the victory,
but Aaron Crafts driving 10-foot-
er hit off the backboard and rolled
off the rim as the buzzer sounded.
Craft remained on his back in
disappointment as the Flyers
rushed to celebrate at their bench
at the other end of the court.
Sam Thompson scored 18
points and Craft added 16 for Ohio
State, which was eliminated after
one game for only the third time in
its 26 tournament appearances.

Three weeks into the Peninsula Athletic
League boys tennis season and its clear
Menlo-Atherton is the cream of the Bay
Division crop. Not only beating teams but
whipping them soundly.
While it appears the Bears will clinch the
PALs lone automatic bid to the Central
Coast Section playoffs, the rest of the Bay
Division is up in the air and battling for
three of the four PAL playoff spots and a
chance at the leagues second automatic CCS
bid. The fourth spot goes to the Ocean
Division champion.
M-A is a powerhouse at the top, but
everyone else is pretty even, said Aragon
coach Dave Owdom.
Owdoms Dons are one of those teams bat-
tling for the top seed in the PAL playoffs at
the end of the season. Having only lost to
M-A in league play, the Dons appear to be
one of the teams to beat.
Mills took its shot at Aragon Thursday in
San Mateo and the Dons showed just how
strong they are with a 6-1 victory over the
Vikings.
Were pretty strong at the moment. This
is our best lineup, Owdom said. We
havent had our full lineup play together.
Aragon (5-1 PAL Bay) dominated the dou-
bles matches, sweeping all three with rela-
tive ease. The No. 1 tandem of Landers
Ngirchemat and Alex Ilyin lost only one
game in nishing off their opponents in
about 50 minutes, 6-1, 6-0.
Landers and Alex have played very well,
Owdom said. Landers is a special doubles
player.
The Dons other two doubles teams
Tony Wang and Sameer Jain, and Fabio
Gallardo and Raayan Mohtashemi also
won in straight sets, combining to lose
only seven games between them.
Mills coach Scott Selig, in his 25th sea-
son coaching the Vikings, knew his team
would struggle in the doubles matches. He
said his singles players are much better than
his doubles.
Aragon is too
much for Mills

After a freak injury to Palo Alto
baseball sophomore Laurence Han
March 15 at Carlmont High, the fol-
low-up examination received
Monday was positive, according to
Vikings manager Erick Raich.
Han was struck in the eye while
batting with a ball he fouled off dur-
ing the fourth inning of Palys 7-2
victory over the Scots. It was a
strange play in that the ball struck
Han directly off the bat. It isnt
uncommon for batted balls to
bounce straight down and ricochet
off the ground or plate and then hit a
batter. But Hans injury occurred
with the ball glancing off the top of
the bat causing it to strike him
directly.
Hes good, Raich said. No sur-
gery needed. Were looking at a cou-
ple weeks to get him back. Hes not
going to catch right away but he can
DH for us.
Han was diagnosed with two
minor breaks of the orbital bone
Saturday. According to Raich, the
scare was that pieces of bone could
get into the eye and, in a worst-case
scenario, cause blindness. It was
conrmed Monday that Han is out of
danger.
(Hes got) a little blurry vision,
Raich said. Hes actually champing
at the bit to get back.
Serving as the backup catcher for
the Vikings this season, Han was
serving in his second start of the
year behind the dish Saturday. Paly
is relying on senior Austin Kron
currently hitting .300 with ve dou-
bles to catch all the innings until
Han returns. In the interim, Paly
would utilize sophomore rst base-
man Owen Plambeck or sophomore
pitcher Ellis OBrien behind the
plate if necessary.

SAN FRANCISCO Bruce Miller recalls
springtime three years ago when 49ers run-
ning backs coach Tom Rathman called to
inquire whether he might be up for a position
change. Defense to offense.
The answer was simple: of course he would.
Miller wanted his best chance to contribute in
the NFLas soon as possible.
You know me, I didnt care if it was offense,
defense or special teams, Miller said. That
was exciting to know I was on their radar.
Now, that well-timed switch has helped
Miller earn some job stability.
He signed a three-year contract extension
with San Francisco on Thursday, ensuring the
team can keep a key member of its running
game through the 2017 season.
The do-everything Miller was lost for the
season Dec. 15 with a left shoulder blade injury
sustained during a win at Tampa Bay and his
absence left a huge void. San Francisco great-
ly missed his contributions the rest of the way
before losing to the even-
tual Super Bowl champion
and rival Seattle Seahawks
in the NFC title game.
Miller had a tough time
using the arm after the
game. He took a hard hit
from Buccaneers safety
Keith Tandy after a 10-yard
catch midway through the
fourth quarter.
He has been training and rehabbing at 49ers
headquarters and is ready for a full offseason
program with his teammates.
Its going great. I had a complete, full,
healthy recovery, Miller said. Its looking
good. Ill be completely ready and 100 percent
come April 21 and have a great offseason. Im
a full participant right now. If we were to start
today Id be ready to go.
The 26-year-old Miller has been a key
blocker for 1,000-yard rusher Frank Gore, and
Miller had 25 catches for 243 yards along with
seven carries for 13 yards last season. He
worked to convert from college defensive end
to NFLfullback. Gore has long credited Miller
with allowing him to break big gains.
Bruce is a hard-working, dedicated young
player that has done an outstanding job for us,
both on and off the eld, 49ers general man-
ager Trent Baalke said. He is one of those
players that contributes a lot more to the team
and to the community than he gets credit for,
yet wouldnt have it any other way. We are
pleased that Bruce has chosen to extend his
stay with the 49ers.
During the 2011 season as a rookie, Miller
caught the 49ers lone touchdown in a 19-11
win at Washington and emerged as a feel-good
story in coach Jim Harbaughs rst season.
Harbaugh has appreciated Miller from Day
1.
Especially considering Miller was open to
the idea of converting from defensive end to
fullback. The move gave him a regular job with
the 49ers.
Its denitely been a long journey and a lot
of hard work, but its been a blast. I couldnt
have planned it out any better for me, Miller
said. Three years as a part of this organiza-
tion, I couldnt ask for anything more. Excited
for whats to come.
Miller was a dominant defensive end for
Central Florida, earning Conference USA
Defensive Player of the Year honors while
becoming the schools all-time sacks leader
with 36.
Ive had so much help, especially when I
rst came in, transitioning to offense, Miller
said. Him having the condence of putting
me out on the eld and letting me play that rst
year was big.
While Miller has quietly emerged support-
ing Gore and the running backs in so many
ways, he has become one of the players the
Niners count on most.
San Francisco has increased his role and load
each season, and he would love to take on even
more.
For me, its wanting to denitely just be a
part and do whatever I can to help our offense
be successful. Every year its been evolving
and more on my plate, Miller said.
Hopefully, more additions and a little more
playing time for me.

Sacred Heart Prep 4, Terra Nova 3
The Gators, which got shelled Wednesday
by Menlo School, rebounded with a shutout
win over the Tigers Thursday.
SHP (1-1 PAL Bay, 5-4 overall) scored
four runs on just two hits, taking advantage
of a pair of Terra Nova errors.
The Gators scored three runs in the bot-
tom of the rst inning and that was enough
for starting pitcher Will Johnston, who
threw a complete-game two hitter.
Cole March, Chris Lee and JR Hardy each
had an RBI for SHP.
Jacob Martinez had two of the three hits
for Terra Nova (0-1, 2-4).

Aragons depth is good all the way
through, Selig said. We have this group
(singles, who are good) and that group (dou-
bles). Our two (PAL) wins have been singles
sweeps. Were competitive in all our sin-
gles. We just have to work on our doubles.
Mills (2-5, 5-6) proved to be a bit tougher
in the singles matches, but Aragon proved it
is the better team, winning three of the four
singles matches.
Isaac Wang, the Dons No. 2 singles play-
er, took care of Kevin Reyes, 6-3, 6-2.
Mathew Fowler, at No. 4 singles, also won
his match in straight sets over Zach Wong,
6-2, 6-2.
Mills Jeff Liu put up a ght at No. 3 sin-
gles, but Aragons Jonathon Liu prevailed
in three sets, 6-4, 4-6 and 10-7 in a super
tiebreak.
Our singles players are all pretty even,
Owdom said.
Mills lone win came at No. 1 singles,
where James Tanjutco topped Devon
Hughes, 6-2, 6-4.
Selig believes his team would be in much
better shape if not for the last-minute defec-
tion of two key players who decided not to
come out for the team.
I would have given us a good shot at get-
ting back to the PAL playoffs (this season).
We havent been there in quite a few years,
Selig said. But two seniors, No. 4 and 5 on
our ladder, decided not to come out (this sea-
son).
That being said, Selig believes his team
can still make a run at a PALplayoff berth if,
in the second half of the season, the
Vikings can reverse some first-half out-
comes.
We might be able to have a shot if we can
turn some of these matches around (in the
second half of the season), Selig said.

TENNIS
The game-winning rally was almost a rally
that wasnt. Hillsdale played an outstanding
defensive game, with junior shortstop
Meagan Wells ashing the range and the arm
throughout. She kept the Scots off the base
paths to the tune of six ineld assists,
including an incredibly rangy play over the
middle to end the fth.
With one out in the seventh, Wells almost
made an even more dazzling play on a ball
scorched to her left by Carlmont senior
Gabriella Pons. Wells slid to a knee and got
leather on the sharp grounder but could not
corral it. Pons went on to steal second and
move to third on a single to right by
Danielle Giuliacci. Then with two outs,
Melissa Pekarek hit a one-hopper back
towards the circle that Pierucci got a glove
on with a backhand, but the ball glanced
away allowing Pons to score the go-ahead
run.
I thought Tori had it, Hillsdale head
coach Randy Metheany said. It wasnt that
far out of her reach. It went in her glove. It
had a little pace on it and then I think it just
kind of popped out of her palm. And then it
didnt go to one of our girls. It kind of went
to the side. I think we would have still been
able to make a play.
Jacey Phipps followed with a are to cen-
ter that Knights second baseman Eryn
McCoy ran down but also had it glance off
her glove for a base knock, plating Giuliacci
to give Carlmont a 3-1 lead.
Of Carlmonts four hits in the inning,
three of them caught leather.
Our kids had character, Carlmont head
coach Jim Liggett said. They battled back.
[Faulkner] kept us in the game. And we got
some breaks.
Following the game, Carlmont cleanup
hitter Mariko Kondo walked across the dia-
mond to give a Pierucci a playful hug. While
the two were opponents Thursday, they play
on the same West Bay Nuggets travel-ball
team.
I hope she pitches that way in the sum-
mer, Kondo said. Because if we both do,
then I think were going to be unbeatable.
Pierucci took a three-hitter into the sev-
enth and induced 11 groundouts throughout.
I thought her location was good and her
off-speed pitches were in the zone, and [the
Scots hitters] were having trouble with it,
Matheany said. You cant fault anything
she did. I thought she was tremendous. And
Becca is tough. Shes a Division I player.
You can see it. Shes a ghter.
With the win, Faulkner who will attend
UC Riverside on a full athletic scholarship
next season improves to 3-1. The win is
her rst one-run victory of the season. And
she was appreciative of locking up in a
pitchers duel.
I think its nice to have that person to
compete with because youre kind of always
on your toes, Faulkner said. You dont
want to give up. Every pitch counts. So its
really nice to have that duel with someone
else.

SCOTS
By Doug Ferguson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ORLANDO, Fla. Masters champion Adam
Scott was feeling ill when he arrived at Bay
Hill. One majestic round with the putter
Thursday made him feel a lot better.
Scott made ve putts from about 20 feet or
longer, two of them for eagle and one of them
from off the green for birdie, and matched the
course record with a 10-under 62 to build a
three-shot lead in the Arnold Palmer
Invitational.
The conditions were close to perfect. So was
his work on the greens.
I made a lot of putts today, and a lot of putts
from considerable length, Scott said. I hit a
lot of nice shots, too, but it wasnt like I was
hitting it 4 feet. I had a round like this in
Australia at the end of last year in the rst six
holes, I didnt hit it outside 5 feet. Theres a lot
of different ways to get the ball in the hole. But
its good for the condence. Its what I wanted.
I sat in here yesterday and said Id like to make
some birdies and build the condence. And
today is a good start to that.
Ryo Ishikawa, who uses Bay Hill as his home
course on the East Coast, birdied the 18th for a
65. John Merrick celebrated his 32nd birthday
by reaching 8 under until a late bogey. He also
shot 65.
Both were 10 shots behind before they hit
their rst shot of the tournament.
That took the pressure off, Merrick said.
Youre already 10 shots behind, so its not like
youre protecting anything. But this isnt the
Bay Hill I remember. I dont usually play golf in
Florida without 20 mph wind.
Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano had his best
round of the year with a 66. Brandt Snedeker and
Paul Casey were among those at 67. They were
all but forgotten with Scotts 62 on the board.
Scott walked from the ninth green across the
practice range to the scoring trailer as one play-
er after another turned his head and asked how
low Scott went on the day. One caddie quipped,
Is there a 10-shot rule when you havent teed
off?
It was the lowest round in 30 years at Bay
Hill. Andy Bean in 1981 and Greg Norman in
1984 are the only other players with a 62 at
Bay Hill.

start in the NCAAtournament.
Payne, a 6-foot-10 senior, scored
12 straight points in the rst half to
help the fourth-seeded Spartans (27-
8) to an 18-point lead.
He set an NCAAtournament record
by making all 17 of his free throws
and broke the programs tournament
scoring record, set previously by
Greg Kelser in 1979.
Devon Saddler had 21 points and
Davon Usher added 20 for the 13th-

Travis Trice scored 13 of his 19

UConn (27-8). The Huskies won
their rst tournament game under

stepped down due to health issues.
With the game tied at 70 entering
overtime, Daniels opened the scor-
ing by completed a three-point play
with 3:47 left during a 5-minute peri-
od the Huskies never trailed.
Langston Galloway scored 25

The Hawks wore down because of a
lack of depth, and then lost their top

out early into overtime.

backcourt of Trevor Cooney and Tyler

Orange defense clamped down.
Western Michigan (23-10), the
Mid-American Conference champi-
on, had won 14 of 16 games and was
in the NCAAtournament for the rst
time in a decade.
The third-seeded Orange (28-5)

half and scored 13 points off them in
running out to a double-digit lead
before the midpoint of the period.
Cooney led the Orange with 18
points, hitting 4 of 8 from beyond
the arc, and Ennis had 16 points and
six assists with one turnover.
The Orange used an 18-4 spurt over
10 minutes to take control and led 40-
21 at halftime.
Shayne Whittington and Tucker
Haymond led Western Michigan with
11 points apiece.
Pittsburgh 77, Colorado 48
ORLANDO, Fla. Talib Zanna
scored 16 of his 18 points in the
opening half, helping ninth-seeded
Pittsburgh build a 28-point lead.
The Panthers (26-9) shot 51 per-
cent and played stiing defense.
Colorado (23-12) was eager to
make amends for an early exit from
the tournament a year ago, but had no
answers for the 6-foot-9 Zanna. The
Pitt center made six of seven shots in
the rst half, and the Panthers didnt
have any difculty nishing off the
overwhelmed Buffaloes.
Josh Scott led the eighth-seeded
Buffaloes with 14 points, however
Colorado couldnt overcome a subpar
performance from Askia Booker.
Florida 67, Albany 55
ORLANDO, Fla. Dorian Finney-
Smith scored 16 points, most of
them on dunks, and top-seeded
Florida used a second-half surge to
beat 16th-seeded Albany.
The Gators (33-2) showed some
vulnerability, though, while extend-
ing their school-record winning
streak to 27 games.
Coach Billy Donovans team
sleepwalked through the rst half,
swapping the lead back and forth
with the pesky Great Danes, but
Floridas bench provided a much-
needed spark.
Finney-Smith, the Southeastern
Conferences sixth man of the year,
was 6-of-10 shooting. Freshman
guard Kasey Hill, who wasnt sure he
would be able to play because of turf
toe, chipped in 10 points.

for its second straight tournament appearance,
after going 1-1 in 2009.
It was a back-and-forth game that featured 15
lead changes, betting of two schools that
feature numerous connections.
Dayton coach Archie Miller spent two sea-
sons at Ohio State working under Thad Matta.
And Flyers guard Jordan Sibert left the
Buckeyes two years ago and transferred to
Dayton.
The Flyers took a 58-57 lead with 26.3 sec-
onds remaining when Pierre hit all three free
throws after being fouled in the left corner by
Shannon Scott.
The Buckeyes regained the lead on Crafts
driving reverse layup with 15.5 seconds left.
After Dayton took a timeout with 10.8 sec-
onds remaining, they inbounded the ball and
worked it to Sanford on the right wing.
Driving the lane without hesitation, he laid in
a shot from about 4 feet away.
Sanford is one of two Flyers with tourna-
ment experience. He transferred to Dayton
after previously playing at Georgetown.
Sibert is the other after making two appear-
ances with the Buckeyes.
Devin Oliver scored 11 points for Dayton,
while Pierre led with eight rebounds.
The Buckeyes season comes to an abrupt
end after the team got off to a 15-0 start. Ohio
State instead stumbled down the stretch in
splitting its nal 20 games.
The Flyers, meanwhile, continued their roll.
Since enduring a 1-5 slump, Dayton has
improved to 11-2 in its past 13 games.
The Flyers surged to a 43-35 lead on Kendall
Pollards drive, before the Buckeyes leaned on
their stiing defense to mount a comeback.
Ohio State capitalized on four Dayton
turnovers to go on a 10-0 run capped by
Thompsons rebound of Crafts miss with
10:23 remaining.
Neither team was capable of pulling away
after that.
There was very little separating the teams
during a rst half that had seven lead changes
and ended with Dayton ahead 33-30. Matt
Kavanaugh was the difference as the Buckeyes
defense had difculty containing him in the
paint. Kavanaugh scored all his nine points in
the rst 20 minutes, and picked up the slack
on offense after Sibert was forced to sit for 7
minutes in after picking up his second foul.

Harvard never trailed after the opening

scrap against the No. 5 seed Bearcats, who
shared the American Athletic Conference regular
season title. Sean Kilpatrick led seed Cincinnati
(27-7) with 18 points, but the Bearcats failed to
win a tournament game for the second straight
year.
There was a reason Harvard was a popular
upset pick. Even President Barack Obama had
the Crimson taking out the Bearcats.
The reason: defense and balance. All ve
starters averaged in double gures for the season
and that balance was needed against
Cincinnatis aggressive defense. Laurent
Rivard, the Crimsons 3-point specialist, n-
ished with 11 points, while Steve Moundou-
Missi and Brandyn Curry both scored nine.
Harvard also improved to 15-0 this season
when holding its opponent to 60 points or less.
They entered the tournament with the 13th best
scoring defense in the country. That defense
helped overcome a shaky performance at the
free throw line where Harvard was 17 of 28.
Cincinnati had its chances. Justin Jackson
nished with 13 points and 11 rebounds, but the
Bearcats shot only 37 percent and missed a num-
ber of shots around the rim.
Harvard withstood the early second-half push
from the Bearcats. Jacksons dunk while being
fouled and subsequent free throw pulled
Cincinnati within 42-39 and Titus Rubles driv-
ing layup later trimmed the margin to 45-43.
The Crimson then forced turnovers on three
straight Bearcatspossessions. Saunders ipped
in a driving nger roll to push the lead to ve.
As Harvard went to the bench for a timeout,
Chambers grinned and coach Tommy Amaker
pumped his sts in approval.
Harvard was not going to be denied another
moment. They got second and third chances at
their own misses. They littered the oor
scrounging for loose balls.
Cincinnati went more than ve minutes with-
out scoring.
But the Bearcats fought back and cut the lead
to one before Chambers stepped up. He hit a
pullup 17-footer with 1:57 left for a 56-53 lead.
Kyle Casey then drew an offensive foul against
Kilpatrick with 1:33 left.
Chambers hit a trio of free throws in the nal
minute and Saunders sealed it hitting a pair with
11 seconds left, setting off the celebration.

DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT
The GMC Terrain shows how a powerful
engine and macho styling can inform your
relationship with a vehicle. When youre
behind the wheel, you cant see the Terrains
huge fender ares and imposing grille, but
you know theyre there, and they can make
you feel like youre piloting something
brawnier than a small crossover SUV.
The brawn provided by the optional 3.6
liter V6 underscores that feeling. Floor the
gas pedal at any speed below about 80 mph,
and youll be treated to a thrilling rush of
acceleration as the six speed automatic
transmission kicks down a gear or two.
Above 80 mph, the acceleration becomes
more linear than abrupt, but you can thunder
all the way up to 118 mph before the speed
governor kicks in.
The Terrain has been around since 2010,
but this wonderful 301 horsepower engine
was added last year, replacing a 264 horse-
power 3.0 liter V6. It transformed the vehi-
cle, shaving two seconds off the previous
V6 models 0 to 60 time. GMCs website
says 60 mph will arrive from a standing start
in 6.7 seconds, while Car & Driver maga-
zine recently got a loaded AWD Terrain
Denali to hit 60 mph in just 6.5 seconds.
The EPAsays the AWD V6 Terrain is good
for 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the
highway. Opt for the FWD model and each
gure increases by 1 mpg. Forgoing the
$1,750 AWD option might seem out of step
with the Terrains rugged image, but its
worth noting that the system lacks a 4WD
lock mode for use on soft surfaces, and the
Terrain isnt designed for heavy off-road use.
Fuel economy improves with the base 2.4
liter four cylinder engine, but this option
should only be considered by motorists who
absolutely do not care about acceleration.
The Daily Journal didnt have an opportuni-
ty to drive the four-cylinder model, but that
same engine is a tepid performer in the
Chevrolet Malibu, which weighs a lot less
than the base Terrains 3,853 pounds. AWD
four cylinder Terrains are rated at 20 mpg
city and 29 mpg highway, while FWD four
cylinder models earn EPAratings of 22 mpg
city and 32 mpg highway.
Some members of the unofcial GMC
Terrain Owners & Fans Facebook group
have raved about the four cylinder models
fuel economy, but others have lamented its
lack of power, especially on steep grades.
Drivers needing four-cylinder frugality
might be better served buying a Honda CR-
V, which has more horsepower, yet weighs
several hundred pounds less than the base
Terrain.
Some members of the Terrain Facebook
group have also complained about the need
for various repairs that were unexpected, but
covered under warranty. Examples include an
owner of a 2013 V6 model with a leaking
rear-end seal, and more than one owner
whose air conditioning kept intermittently
stopping and starting. However, based on
extensive surveys of owners, J.D. Power and
Associates give the Terrain a predicted relia-
bility score of about average. Given that
cars and trucks in general are far more reli-
able than they were in bygone decades, a
merely average score probably translates
into trouble-free motoring for most owners.
When it comes to avoiding trouble on the
road, the Terrains behavior during high-
speed, emergency lane-change maneuvers is
commendable. You might expect a vehicle
this tall and heavy to exhibit wallowing
body-roll when you abruptly swerve from
one lane to another, but youd be wrong.
The Terrain also has lane-departure and
collision-avoidance alarms, both of which
are tied to a camera in front of the rear-view
mirror. Drive the Terrain enough, and youll
occasionally get a false positive from the
collision alarm, but this doesnt happen
very often. The system is supposed to warn
you when youre following too closely
behind another vehicle, but during the Daily
Journals testing, triggering the tailgating
warning proved difcult. The system has
three distance settings, but even when set to
require the maximum following distance, it
usually refused to sound the alarm, even
when the rear bumpers of other cars were
approached with frightening speed.
GMC spokeswoman Kelly Wysocki said
the system takes various factors into
account, including the relative speeds of
both vehicles, so its possible that under
certain circumstances, the system is too
smart to be fooled into thinking a rear-end
collision is imminent.
Far more useful, and less puzzling, is the
Terrains back-up camera. Shift into reverse,
and the touch-screen on the standard info-
tainment system presents a sh-eyed view
of whats behind you. The system even rec-
ognizes other parked cars, and superimposes
an on-screen warning icon over any car that
it thinks youre coming close to backing
into. Theres also an audible warning that
increases in frequency as you get closer to
hitting something.
The Terrain is strictly a ve-passenger
vehicle, so if you need three-row, eight-pas-
senger seating, youll have to step up to the
larger (yet less powerful) GMC Acadia, or
look at some of GMCs competitors. The
Terrains back seat does have the ability to
slide forward to increase cargo capacity at
the expense of rear passenger legroom.
Naturally, the rear seat can also be folded at
for maximum hauling ability. So congured,
the Terrain boasts 63.9 cubic feet of cargo
capacity.
Wysocki said that although GMC is cur-
rently announcing changes to its various
trucks and SUVs for the 2015 model year, it
has yet to announce any major changes for
the Terrain. Besides the more powerful V6,
the other big news last year was the addition
of a Denali trim package, which adds leather
and faux-wood surfaces to the interior, as
well as various chrome and electronic doo-
dads.
Curiously, the build-and-price tool on
GMCs website doesnt list a price for the
Denali package. However, one Bay Area
GMC dealers website shows an AWD V6
Denali as being in stock, with an MSRP of
$41,020. Given that an AWD V6 Terrain
with the SLT-2 trim package costs just
$35,435, and comes with every conceivable
comfort and convenience item, including a
leather interior, its hard to justify the
Denali packages extra expense.
Its not perfect, and its not for everybody,
but if your idea of motoring pleasure is a
tall, classy wagon that laughs at potholes
and accelerates like a sports car, the V6
GMC Terrain is worth considering.

If you have a kid of a certain age
especially a girl, preteen or
thereabouts then you know the
young-adult entertainment message
of choice these days:
Youre you, and nobody else.
Dont let them dene you. Dont let
them put you into one of their neat
little slots. Youre unique. And
youre gonna show the world. You
go, girl!
So its no surprise that this is the
message of Divergent, the latest
young adult blockbuster-in-wait-
ing. Its also no surprise that the
emerging young star Shailene
Woodley delivers a crucial dose of
humility, sensitivity and intelli-
gence in this showcase role. And
its no surprise, either, that she gen-
erates nice chemistry with her
rather absurdly good-looking co-
star, Theo James.

Damaris Divito plays Diana, and Ross Neuenfeldt plays Max.
By Judy Richter
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT
Misunderstandings abound, and so do the
laughs in Hillbarn Theatres production of
Lend Me a Tenor.
Ken Ludwigs farce takes place in a
Cleveland hotel suite in 1934. Tito Merelli
(Ron Lopez Jr.), the operatic equivalent of a
rock star, is scheduled to sing the title role in
Verdis Otello for the Cleveland Grand
Opera Company that night.
Hes late, so the companys manager,
Saunders (Craig Lewis), and his assistant,
Max (Ross Neuenfeldt), are beyond worried.
When Tito and his volatile wife, Maria
(Nicole Martin), nally do arrive, hes tired
and upset. Rather than go to rehearsal, he
wants to take a nap.
He inadvertently downs a potent dose of
Phenobarbital along with wine and falls into
a deep sleep. In the meantime, Maria has left
him an unsigned farewell note. When
Saunders and Max nd it next to the unre-
sponsive Tito, they believe he has commit-
ted suicide.
Theyre left with a dilemma. Do they can-
cel the show or go ahead with the no-name
understudy?
The unassuming, dweeby Max, an aspiring
opera singer, volunteers to assume Titos
identity and sing in his place.
While all this was transpiring, a parade of
Titos fans has stopped by, hoping to meet
him. First theres Maggie (Elspeth Noble),
Saunders daughter and Maxs would-be girl-
friend.
Also appearing are Diana (Damaris
Divito), the soprano playing Desdemona;
Julia (Mary Moore), chairman of the
Cleveland Opera Guild; and even a bellhop,
Frank (Michael Sally). The women would
like to seduce him, while Frank just wants
his photo and an autograph.
Things get really complicated after every-
one has left for the opera house. Tito awak-
ens from his stupor, dons his extra costume
and rushes off to the opera house.
Afterward, both Max and Tito return to the
hotel unbeknownst to each other. From then
on, theres one hilarious misunderstanding
after another.
No farce would be complete without plenty
of doors for one person to hide behind when
another shows up. The set by Kuo-Hao Lo
successfully serves that purpose. Likewise,
Hunt Burdicks direction has honed the slam-
ming of those doors to a ne edge.
Because its so silly, farce might seem
easy, but it requires split-second timing,
which the Hillbarn cast has mastered.
Likewise, farce requires an astute director
like Burdick, who mines the play for maxi-
mum humor without letting things get out of
hand.
The sound design by Jon Hayward features
a pleasant mix of familiar operatic selec-
tions and popular tunes from the time.
Costumes by Mae Heagerty-Matos generally
reect the times except for the cut of Maxs
business suit. On the other hand, the
womens dresses are impressive.
The cast is solid, especially Neuenfeldt as
Max and Lewis as Saunders. As Maggie,
Noble is inclined to overact or become
shrill.
Overall, however, this is a well done,
highly entertaining production. It continues
at Hillbarn Theatre, 1285 E. Hillsdale Blvd.,
Foster City, through March 30. For tickets

Based on Veronica Roths best-selling YA
novel, Divergent hits theaters Friday,
with a projected domestic gross of about
$60 million on its opening weekend. Thats
a lot less than the $152.5 million The
Hunger Games made in its 2012 domestic
debut.
We want to be our own movie, said pro-
ducer Lucy Fisher. The comparisons are
great, but you cant say you will duplicate a
phenomenon. We always saw this creative-
l y, as a movie with a very different hero-
ine.
Divergent is set in a dystopian future in
Chicago, where everyone is divided into
factions based on their virtues. The story
follows 16-year-old Tris (Shailene
Woodley), who chooses to leave her group
for another. The lm features a cast of stars-
to-be, including Theo James, Miles Teller
and Jai Courtney, as well as veterans Kate
Winslet and Ashley Judd.
For Wick and Fisher, nding a lm studio
to invest in Divergent meant enduring a
number of rejections before sealing a deal
with Lionsgate and subsidiary Summit
Entertainment.
There was no readership yet, so no one
wanted to do it, said Wick, noting their
pitch came before Roths sci- book hit
shelves in April 2011. But the producers
could foresee a best-seller and a potential
killer movie.
It was authentic and Veronica really
had something to say about making
tough choices, added Wick. It also
painted a great canvas.
Lionsgate, the studio behind The Hunger
Games lms, and Summit, the studio that
backed the wildly successful Twilight YA
series, took a chance on the unread
Divergent.
Roths books, including Divergent fol-
low-ups Insurgent and Allegiant, have
sold over 11 million copies. But high book
sales dont always lead to a movie block-
buster. Like most YAhits, a huge factor lies
in the leading lady of the lm and that
swoon-worthy leading man.
The lms producers had planned to comb
the globe in search of a young talent to play
their heroine. Our intention was to do an
exhaustive search, said Wick, who was
responsible for casting Angelina Jolie in
Girl, Interrupted. We knew about
Shailene through The Descendants, but
when we met her, she was going to do an
urban survival course where they drop you
in some part of the city, tie you up and you
have to nd your way back. She emerged
clearly.
For the leading male character, Four, they
chose British actor Theo James. We wanted
someone who was manly, but also vulnera-
ble, said Fisher. We kept saying, Cant
we nd the young Paul Newman? Theo was a
complete and utter bingo.
Though the Twilight and The Hunger
Games series have sold over 100 million
books combined, the lm adaptations didnt
seem to have had as much anticipation as
Divergent.
Twilight caught everybody by surprise,
so the buildup was a little quieter, said Dave
Karger, chief correspondent of online ticket
provider Fandango. Now the industry and
the audience is looking for that next
Twilight or Hunger Games.
Continued from page 18
COMPARE
What IS surprising is that with all these
promising elements, Divergent, the rst
of three installments based on rst-time
author Veronica Roths trilogy, ultimately
feels so lackluster. For a lm predicated on
the principle that being different or
divergent is what makes you special,
Divergent just doesnt diverge enough
from the pack.
Not that this will hurt the lms chances
at the box ofce. Like The Hunger Games,
the franchise to which it will unavoidably
be compared, Divergent has a ready-made
audience of fans just waiting to ll those
seats over 11 million books have been
sold, after all.
Those book fans will have a crucial head
start. Divergent takes a good deal of time
explaining plot mechanics, but If you
already know whats happening, you can
spend more time admiring, say, those
cheekbones on James or his day-old,
dystopian stubble.
In a nutshell, Divergent, directed by
Neil Burger, takes place in a futuristic
Chicago, a bleak version indeed of the
Windy City. Half of every building seems to
be destroyed, leaving hulking shells.
Civilization is divided into ve factions,
based on human virtues: Dauntless,
Abnegation, Erudite, Amity, and Candor.
Beatrice Prior (Woodley) is born into
Abnegation. But at age 16, a citizen can
choose their own faction, at the Choosing
Ceremony. Right before, they take an apti-
tude test that tells them which faction they
t best. Beatrices results are downright
scary: She has not one virtue, but all of
them. She is divergent which makes
her dangerous.
To the distress of her parents (Ashley Judd
and Tony Goldwyn), Beatrice opts to join
Dauntless, the most courageous faction, but
also the most reckless: Pierced and tattooed,
they look like unusually t punk rockers.
Soon shes in boot camp, jumping on and
off trains (trains never seem to actually stop
in this movie) and into pits, and ghting
viciously in the ring, under the guidance of
the initially unforgiving Four (James), her
trainer. Gradually, Beatrice shes renamed
herself Tris becomes buff and strong.
But will it be enough to survive?
On top of all this, theres a political
storm brewing, led by the villainess
Jeanine Matthews, played by a blonde and
stiletto-clad Kate Winslet in one of her less
convincing performances (in a sadly under-
written role.) Matthews is the leader of
Erudite, which means shes got a killer IQ
along with those killer heels, and shes con-
vinced that Divergents are a threat to her
plan to overthrow Abnegation.
Then theres Peter, another Dauntless ini-
tiate who comes from Candor, meaning the
role is perfect for the fast-talking Miles
Teller so memorable opposite Woodley
in The Spectacular Now, but underused
here.
Theres some entertaining action here,
but the action most teen fans may like best
involves a lip-lock as teen movie kisses
go, its a really good one between
Woodley and James.
At 143 minutes, though, the movie feels
overly long, and by the end, you may want
to hop onto one of those trains yourself and
hope it arrives somewhere a lot less grim.
But two sequels await. So theres always
hope.
Divergent, a Summit Entertainment
release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion
Picture Association of America for intense
violence and action, thematic elements and
some sensuality. Running time: 143 min-
utes. Two stars out of four.

BEVERLY HILLS
Divergent, the latest young adult
novel poised to become a block-
buster movie, meets all the criteria
for the YA genre: The movie is
adapted from a best-seller; the
story is rooted in sci-; and the cast
consists of hot, young stars-to-be.
But unlike the Twilight and The
Hunger Games series, this one was
actually written by someone under
30.
In 2011, writer Veronica Roth
was just 22 years old when her
book hit shelves. Based on a future
dystopian society where people are
segregated by their values, her
debut landed on the New York Times
childrens best-seller list, where it
remained for 11 weeks. She fol-
lowed it up with the sequel
Insurgent and completed her tril-
ogy with Allegiant. Her books
have sold over 11 million copies.
Summit Entertainment, the same
studio behind the Twilight fran-
chise, acquired the film rights
before the rst copy of Divergent
was sold. Its been surreal, Roth
said during a recent interview.
When I found out Summit wanted
to make a movie, I was like, They
want to do what? I was really nerv-
ous, but I was relieved when it start-
ed doing well. That they were inter-
ested was really encouraging.
Starring Shailene Woodley, Theo
James and Kate Winslet, the lm
opens Friday.
During an interview with The
Associated Press, Roth talked
about letting the studio take her
book and run with it, the inevitable
comparisons with The Hunger
Games and how shes grown as a
writer:
AP: The rst time you saw
the fi l m adaptati on of
Divergent, did it look the
way youd envisioned it?
Rot h: Not until I saw the shot of
the Sears Tower (now Chicagos
Willis Tower) and the characters
going into the choosing ceremony
did I really go, Oh thats really it.
I got really emotional. And I was
happy because I didnt want any
sleek or super polished future and it
does look kind of destroyed. You
cant micromanage the movie
adaptation of your book. First of
all, they wont let you. Second of
all, I didnt want to.
AP: Your stories have been
compared to writer Suzanne
Col l i ns The Hunger Games
seri es. Both focus
on heroi nes i n
dyst opi an soci-
et i es. Feel any
pressure to match
the box-ofce num-
bers of those adap-
tati ons?
Rot h: I think its a
double-edged sword. I
try not to think about
it, but I dont succeed
most of the time. The
Hunger Games did
something remark-
able. So in that sense, its a atter-
ing comparison. But you cant
hope to replicate that experience.
It was unique.
AP: What are your thoughts
on the casti ng choi ces of
Shai l ene Woodl ey as t he
character Tris and Theo James
as Four?
Rot h: (Shailene and Theo)
transported me right away. They
had great chemistry. That is what I
was most concerned about because
that has to carry the story.
AP: What was the inspira-
ti on for the story?
Roth: My freshman year of col-
lege I learned about exposure thera-
py, which is a method of treating
anxiety and phobia. Someone is
repeatedly exposed to the thing
that makes them afraid, so they
become habituated to it. I wanted to
use it in a sci- context.
AP: Writer Stephenie Meyer
was 31 when her rst book
from the Twi l i ght col l ec-
ti on came out. Suzanne
Collins was 46 when the rst
novel from her The Hunger
Games trilogy released. How
does it feel to be a young
adult generating young adult
material?
Roth: I feel acutely aware of
how young I am. In a way that is
good. Its productive. It makes me
realize that I should be growing as
a writer and a person.
AP: How have you grown as
a writer?
Roth: I take things that I am
putting on the page more seriously
now. In the subsequent books I
thought more about violence and
young people. Its very serious.
That doesnt mean Im limiting the
content. I just handle it different.
In terms of writing skill, I think
more detail and less repetition.
AP: Does the pressure t o
produce a good fol l ow-up
weigh on you?
Roth: It depends on the day. The
only time Im able to write is when
I can let that go. Its been helpful
to have a series nished and think
that whatever I do next just gets to
exist between me and my screen for
as long as I want it to. Its a way of
coaching myself into relaxing.
AP: Have you nished your
next book?
Roth: I wrote a collection of
short stories thats coming out in
July. (The collection is told from
Fours perspective.) Its kind of a
prequel to Divergent. Im just n-
ishing them now.
Roth: A young adult novelist actually under 30

MUSEUM GOTTA SEE UM
By Susan Cohn
DAILY JOURNAL SENIOR CORRESPONDENT
DOORS: ENTRYWAYS TO WORLD CULTURES
AT THE SAN FRANCISCO AIRPORT MUSEUM. As
a necessary architectural element throughout the world,
doors separate and define space, facilitating passage
between interior and exterior, private and public, sacred
and secular. Doors: Entryways to World Cultures, from the
Fowler Museum at UCLA, now at the San Francisco
Airport Museum, takes a close look at these ubiquitous
structural features in all their variations. Rather than sim-
ply serving utilitarian purposes, the carved, embossed
and painted portals on display from Africa, Asia and South
America illustrate an extraordinary array of forms and
motifs. Most examples are made of wood and are embel-
lished with imagery such as animals, both mythical and
real, human figures or abstract designs. From the Yoruba
of Nigeria to the Toraja of Indonesia, a number of cultures
have transformed doors, elevating them from common-
place forms to individual works of art.
The doors demonstrate not only incredible craftsman-
ship and aesthetics but, in their original settings, reveal
information about their owners. Occasionally, the
imagery depicted on carved and painted doors served as
historical narratives that relayed significant events or
stories. Elaborate door panels were often created for
sacred places such as the palaces of kings and chiefs,
meetinghouses of secret societies and burial chambers.
Many of these doors identified their proprietors as
wealthy, or referred to prestigious ancestors, or were the
property of high-ranking members of associations. Such
doors may have demonstrated not only the importance of
the people who lived inside, but also the significance of
the items that were stored within.
Portals served to protect and included iconography
capable of offering spiritual as well as physical security.
Their symbols were often propitious, alluding to cosmol-
ogy, ancestors and deities, as well as to abundance, health
and well-being, continuity and beneficence. The buffalo,
an auspicious symbol in Toraja culture, appears promi-
nently on two separate doors on display. On one example,
a staff featured between the animals horns symbolizes
defense or protection. Dating from the 19th to early 20th
centuries, the pieces include house, ceremonial, tomb,
granary and palace doors from countries such as Nigeria,
Mali, Senegal, Iran, Indonesia, Taiwan and Suriname.
Each example depicts the diverse range of meanings and
uses that people from around the world have applied to
doors.

CURIODYSSEY MAKES THINGS ADD UP AT
COYOTE POINT IN SAN MATEO. Mathematics has a
reputation for being a little dull and more than a little dif-
ficult. CuriOdyssey, the experiential science and wildlife
center based at Coyote Point in San Mateo, changes that
mindset on Sun. March 23 with All Things Being Equal, a
public event celebrating the wonders of numbers.
Families can explore amazing concepts of math in uncon-
ventional ways, with activities that help them discover
and learn about math. Kids can ride see-saws to explore
how balance works, draw beautiful arching roulette curves
with a Spirograph, and color and draw in giant Sierpinski
Triangles to explore fractal patterns that can continue
into infinity. Juggler Jeremy Shafer creates origami
shapes and children make origami in the shape of some of
CuriOdysseys rescued California animals. All Things
Being Equal runs 10 a.m. noon for the general public
and noon 5 p.m. for CuriOdyssey members. Lunch and
snacks are available for purchase between 11 a.m. 3
p.m. from Sams ChowderMobile. CuriOdyssey is located
at 1651 Coyote Point Drive in San Mateo.

The commission is a diverse group
and, as with their predecessors, some-
times have trouble effectively collabo-
rating, said Harbor District General
Manager Peter Grenell.
There had been in the past some
communication issues amongst the
commissioners, Grenell said. They
decided well we need to try to basical-
ly communicate better and work better
together so lets see if we can get some
assistance from outside.
The board convened for a special
meeting Wednesday, March 12 and
interviewed two facilitators but, after a
dispute as to why there wasnt a third
available candidate, it opted to post-
pone a decision and interview a third
candidate. The commission intended to
do so on Wednesdays regular meeting,
however, a packed agenda, lengthy
closed sessions and with a majority
refusing to extend the meeting past 10
p.m., it ended with the commission
further delaying its decision to seek a
facilitator.
Commissioners Sabrina Brennan
and Jim Tucker agree its important for
the board to work better together and
seeking help seems to be the best way
to do so.
God knows that our board, as much
as we think its good, we need help,
Tucker said. I know enough to know I
dont have all the answers and I need
help to do that.
Brennan has advocated for seeking
professional help and said she went
through a helpful state special district
program. But she is concerned to learn
the last facilitation only entailed
interviews with each individual com-
missioner and a nal report no one can
seem to nd, Brennan said.
I was thinking more in terms of
board dynamics which means learning
how to work together, with a group,
building trust, Brennan said. Id like
to see us go from a dysfunctional board
to a successful board.
Yet, after Wednesdays four-hour-
long meeting, the board didnt allot
time to interview one of the candi-
dates.
The fact that we had somebody there
waiting and we didnt even get to them,
its just awful, Brennan said. He was-
nt even allowed to speak to the board.
That was just so rude and Im embar-
rassed to be part of a board that treated
someone like that.
Tucker agreed he felt bad the board
voted to end the meeting at 10 p.m.
forgetting the candidate had been
patiently waiting to speak.
He drove from Tracy to Monterey to
us just for that meeting, so I felt like a
horses patootie, Tucker said.
Tucker said he spoke with the candi-
date, Tracy Mayor Burt Ives, after the
meeting and is now leaning toward hir-
ing him because he too is an elected
ofcial and should understand the pres-
sure the commissioners face. The other
candidates for the facilitator role are
former Belmont mayor Paul Wright
and Catherine McCracken.
In other business, the commission
voted to reinstate videotaping meet-
ings after it was suspended, approved
spending $274,515 to engage a con-
sulting rm to create a strategic busi-
ness plan and is looking at buying
property.
Hiring a facilitator will likely be
agendized at the commissions April 2
meeting. The commission will then
interview Ives and decide who it will
choose.

inviting in the public at a meeting.
Im not inclined to put in on
Monday nights agenda and I dont see
any compelling reason to do so,
Collins said.
Olbert said he doesnt buy either the
argument that Monday is too quick or
that staff needs to do more work. His
push for a public discussion is not over
details of a transaction, he said, but the
more basic question of whether the
city wants to do something with the
Crestview Property and if so, what?
After a number of closed session and
city meetings on the topic, Olbert said
its not as if it came as a bolt out of
the blue.
Olbert said the talk needs to happen
sooner rather than later and he doesnt
want to give off any impression the
city is violating disclosure rules by
keeping the discussion private.
The idea moved from behind doors to
the public earlier this week when Craig
Baker, superintendent of the San
Carlos Elementary School District,
sent City Manager Jeff Maltbie a
March 17 letter seeking a formal
agreement for the property exchange.
After hearing how the school meet-
ing goes, Collins said April 14 might
be the right time but, speaking on
Thursday afternoon, he just wasnt
sure.
Councilman Cameron Johnson said
he is fine with April 14 and
Councilman Bob Grassilli, like
Collins, isnt sure. Hed also like to
hear the school discussion rst and set
the item for an agenda not packed with
other lengthy or complex matters.
This isnt just a ve-minute discus-
sion, Grassilli said.
Olbert only needs one like-minded
colleague to get the item calendared so
with Johnson on board that April 14
date might stick.
Scheduling disputes aside, the coun-
cilmembers do call the idea of trading
land with the school district a poten-
tial win-win that will let the district
free up space for fourth- and fifth-
graders while creating much-needed
elds for the entire community.
However, the city also has a much
higher private developer offer on its
land which Collins said must also be
considered.
We owe it to our citizens to think
about it and consider all of our
options, he said.
Those details are part of why Collins
said the city needs to have its ducks in
a row on specics before setting a pub-
lic hearing. Residents both positive
and negative are already sending
emails about what they think the city
and school are up to, he said.
People are making assumptions
about things we havent considered
yet, he said.
Grassilli called the proposal inter-
esting but said as with all issues
involving land, the devils always in
the details and cant necessarily be
fast-tracked.
In particular, Grassilli points out
that the parcels are not exactly the
same and, based on the private offer,
not the same value.
The district land has been appraised
at about $12.9 million. The Crestview
Drive property across from Vista Park
is appraised around $13.5 million and
the city has received an offer from an
undiscovered townhouse developer to
purchase it for $18 million.
The San Carlos City Council meets 7
p.m. Monday, March 24 at City
Council, 600 Elm St., San Carlos.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO
ADMINISTER ESTATE OF
Barry Davis
Case Number: 124233
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, con-
tingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or es-
tate, or both, of: Barry Davis. A Petition
for Probate has been filed by Kimberly
Brown in the Superior Court of Califor-
nia, County of San Mateo. The Petition
for Probate requests that Kimberly Brown
be appointed as personal representative
to administer the estate of the decedent.
The petition requests authority to admin-
ister 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
authority.
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: April 7, 2014 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 peti-
tion, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hear-
ing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent cred-
itor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representa-
tive, as defined in section 58(b) of the
California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal de-
livery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal au-
thority may affect your rights as a cred-
itor. You may want to consult with an at-
torney knowledgeable in California law.
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.

off a runway. These RSAs are equipped with
Engineered Material Arresting Systems
made of honeycombed energy-absorbing
material. Congressional mandates require
RSAimprovements are made by 2015.
This was really well coordinated to
make sure we came up with the best stan-
dards with the restrictions of this air-
port, said Robin Hunt, Federal Aviation
Administration manager at the San
Francisco Airport District Office.
After assessing several options for con-
struction, SFO, the airlines and the FAA
agreed closing runways 1L and 1R at the
same time would allow the improvement
work to be accomplished in the safest and
quickest way, according to SFO. The airport
will operate exclusively on runways 28L
and 28R during the summer months. The
work is being done 24 hours a day during the
summer to take advantage of better weather
conditions.
The project needed to stay within the air-
ports current footprint since the airport is
next to Highway 101 and the San Francisco
Bay. Making the runways bigger was not up
for consideration.
Expanding the runways is not an
option, said SFO spokesman Doug Yakel.
SFO, the FAA and the airlines chose clos-
ing both the runways as the most efcient
way to complete the nal phase.
During good weather, minor delays may
occur during peak periods of trafc demand
from 9 a.m. to noon. During bad weather,
delays may be similar to those experienced
during winter months. Delays could range
from ve to 15 minutes for departures, but
shouldnt affect arrivals as much since
arrivals will get priority.
The top criteria was safety rst, second
and third, said Andy Richards, airport traf-
c control tower manager with SFO and the
FAA.
The airport has been working on the proj-
ect since 2008 and has already completed
work on its two major runways. Financing
for the project comes from both federal
funding and airport general revenue bonds.

an email. The new standards, which ofcial-
ly go into place next school year, come
with some state funding and shift to more
team collaborative learning and technology
in the classroom.
Additionally, the groups agreed on a cal-
endar for the 2014-15 school year. The cal-
endar will include 180 school days as well
as three additional paid professional devel-
opment days for teachers. The rst day of
classes for students will be Aug. 28.
The school board was also satised with
the deal, including board President Patrick
Flynn.
I think its great we could came up with a
compromise, he said. Im happy about
it.
Teachers were also pleased with the agree-
ment.
Were really happy its settled for this
year, said Julia Maynard, president of the
association and teacher at Parkside
Intermediate School. We had a big push to
get it for students. It will be really good if
the professional development is a really
good use of time for Common Core prepara-
tion.
The agreement also brings closure to all
other negotiation issues raised this year.
The last day of school for this year will be
June 11.

HAPPY
By David Espo
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON A defiant House
Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi declared
rmly Thursday that the health care law
looms as a political winner for her party
this fall, despite ceaseless Republican
attacks and palpable nervousness among
some of her rank and le who fear their re-
election may be in jeopardy because of it.
We just couldnt be prouder of the legis-
lation, Pelosi told a news conference where
she said the law already has resulted in bet-
ter coverage, more affordable, better quali-
ty insurance for nearly 12 million people.
The California Democrats appearance
was timed for the fourth
anniversary of the bills
signing by President
Barack Obama on March
23, 2010, an occurrence
that few other congres-
sional Democrats seem
inclined to herald at a
time when party strate-
gists seek a strategy to
blunt criticism from
Republicans and their allies.
The rst test of their strategy ended inaus-
piciously for Democrats in Florida recently,
where Republicans won a special election
for a House seat after a costly campaign in
which the health care law played a heavy
role in television advertising.
Pelosi has said the defeat was due more to
the make-up of a district long in Republican
hands. Other Democrats speaking privately
concede the health care law played a role.
Opinion surveys indicate the public gener-
ally wants to improve the law rather than
repeal it, and party strategists are urging
lawmakers to take credit for its benets at
the same time they emphasize their desire to
change portions of it.
Some Republicans seemed delighted that
Pelosi had chosen to trumpet an issue the
GOP seeks to put front and center in the
campaign. In remarks released even before
she spoke, Senate Republican leader Mitch
McConnell of Kentucky said, Obamacare
has led to higher premiums, fewer choices
and enormous complications even for peo-
ple who already had insurance. Its forced
painful choices for people who could barely
get by as it was.
Thats not how Pelosi described the law,
which passed while she was serving as
speaker of the House during Obamas rst
two years in ofce.
Asked whether the law gured to be a
political winner or a loser in a competitive
race for the House, Pelosi said, I believe
that its a winner. She insisted it be referred
to as the Affordable Care Act, its formal
title, rather than as Obamacare, a label
Republicans mockingly came up with but
that the president has since embraced.
Pelosi says health law a winner for Democrats
