New plan, but no ice rink


Bridgepointe Shopping Center owner offers city of San Mateo $3M to tear down facility
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Despite being chastised by city officials


after closing the Bridgepointe Shopping
Center ice rink, property owner SPI
Holdings has returned to San Mateo planners offering $3 million in return for being
allowed to demolish the recreational amenity.
Some in the community have fought hard

Maureen
Freschet

for the last two years to


prevent the centers
owner, SPI Holdings,
from amending the sites
master plan, which calls
for an ice rink or recreational use on the site.
But SPI is hoping to
capitalize on one stipulation of the 1998 document that allowed the

center to be built if it receives City


Councils approval, it can reconstruct the
former Ice Center into more retail space.
Another controversy-causing caveat states
that although the master plan prevents SPI
from demolishing the rink without city
approval, it doesnt require it remain operational.
This will be a challenging situation for
[the] council as emotions run deep on the
ice skating rink and the legal restrictions

limit our options, Mayor Maureen


Freschet wrote in an email acknowledging
shed yet to review the proposal. City
Council will be studying this proposal with
great care and will explore every possible
alternative to ensure we do the right thing
for San Mateo within the limits of our
authority.
SPI turned in a formal application Tuesday
evening to the citys Planning Division

City backing off


on more offices
Redwood City had considered amending
downtown plan to allow for less housing
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

A proposal to decrease housing and increase offices in


downtown Redwood City was scrapped by city planners to
the cheers of some residents who say the area is already too
office heavy.
The Planning Commission was considering a resolution
Tuesday night that would have increased the amount of
office space from 500,000 square feet allowed in the
Downtown Precise Plan to 630,000 square feet and decrease
the number of housing units approved in the plan from
2,500 to 2,100.
The modifications to the maximum allowable development standards of the Downtown Precise Plan, which governs 183 acres in the citys core, also would have reduced
retail uses by 52,000 square feet.
But the Planning Commission did not get to hear the
report from staff because a decision was made to keep the

A visit from the Pool Master


Redwood City couple gets TV show-styled backyard
By Dave Newlands
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

Animal Planets Pool Master left


his mark on Redwood City in the form
of an Emerald Hills water garden that
will be featured in this Fridays season
premier of the show.
Redwood Citys Loftus family turned
to Anthony Archer-Wills, host of the
popular luxury pool themed cable
series Pool Master to fulfill their

dream of a lush and eco-friendly backyard water garden.


Dede Loftus, 44, and her husband
Bill, 47, are both from the area
Menlo Park and Redwood City, respectively and recently moved with
their four children to the Emerald Hills
neighborhood where they could have
more acreage. That acreage meant there
was room for a pool, but that wasnt
necessarily part of the plan until the
Pool Master inspired them.

I always wanted a pool, and [Bill]


kept saying no, Dede said. So he saw
the show and he was watching with the
kids and they were saying we should do
that and he said, Sure, if that guy
builds it, we can get a pool. Then they
told me and I secretly applied to the
show.
Archer-Wills and his crew visited the
Loftus home in November to design

SPOKANE, Wash. The stray dog


was hit by a car, clubbed in the head
and left for dead in a ditch in
Washington state. Days later, the 1year-old bully breed mix showed up
sickly and covered in dirt at a nearby
farm.
Now, the dog that defied death is
recovering with the help of good
Samaritans and veterinarians at
Washington State University.
The dog used to roam the streets
getting scraps of food from people in
Moses Lake, a farm town about 100
miles west of Spokane.
About a month ago, she was struck
by a car. Then things got worse:

Someone cracked her in the head with

But the dog somehow survived and
was discovered at a nearby farm with
a dislocated jaw, leg injuries and a
caved-in sinus cavity.
The wounds helped veterinarians
piece together what happened,
including the hammer blow.
Im assuming that the person who
did this meant to put her out of her
misery, said Sara Mellado, who
learned about the dogs plight on
Facebook and took the animal into
her Moses Lake home.
She named the dog Theia.
Considering everything that shes
been through, shes incredibly gentle and loving, Mellado told the
Associated Press. Shes a true miracle dog, and she deserves a good

Theia is receiving care at WSUs

Pullman.
A CT scan of her skull revealed a
condition that constricts the nasal
passages, restricting air flow into
the lungs, said veterinary resident
Andrea Sundholm, whos assisting
with Theias treatment. It was caused
by multiple nasal bone fractures.
When Theia tries to draw air in
through her nose, shes forced to
open her mouth to breathe instead.
But with a dislocated jaw, that is
challenging as well.

School parcel tax nears mailing day


Opponents of measure in all-mail election claim San Carlos district
doesnt deserve support, advocates say good schools benefit all
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

As election officials prepare to send out


ballots in the parcel tax election to support
San Carlos elementary schools, advocates
claim the revenue is necessary to continue
offering students a quality education while
opponents say the tax is gratuitous.
Voters in the San Carlos Elementary
School District will be asked to support
Measure P, a $246 parcel tax, to benefit local
schools in a mail-only ballot election.
Ballots will be sent out Monday, April 6, and
are due by May 5.
The tax proposes to extend Measure B, the
districts current parcel tax which is set to
expire in June, and increase it by $58. It
would also bundle the extension with
Measure A, the $110 parcel tax approved by
voters in 2011. The new tax, if approved,
would sunset in 2021.
Should the tax measure fail, advocates say
it would cost the district $9.5 million over
the next six years, which would severely
impact the ability of San Carlos schools to
attract and retain top-notch teachers, and
likely result in cuts to necessary programming.
Julia Horak, who heads the advocacy team
in support of the tax, said quality schools are
integral to home values in San Carlos, and
serve as a source of pride for residents.
Its a strong community, lets keep it
strong, she said. We need to keep our kids

with the best teachers.


Increased class sizes, reduced enrichment
programs and teachers potentially looking
to leave the district could be results of the
tax failing, said Horak.
But opponents of the tax claim the district
has not received enough bang for its buck
through investment in teachers to justify
asking residents to increase contributions.
Silicon Valley Taxpayers Association
President Mark Hinkle, who led the opposition against the tax proposal, said the district pays more than similarly sized districts
in the county, such as Burlingame, but students achieve at essentially the same level.
Teachers in San Carlos made an average of
about $74,000 last year, according to data
from the San Mateo County Office of
Education.
Clearly, San Carlos teachers are paid pretty well compared to other teachers in the
county, he said. Lets see some productivity increases in the student test scores.
Teachers received a 2 percent raise last
year, which marks the third year in a row educators have accepted a pay bump.
He said the district should learn to live
within its means, rather than continue asking residents to support tax measures.
Members of the San Carlos community
who wish to financially support the district should channel their enthusiasm
through the education foundation which
pays for programs at the schools, rather
than ask for a tax which impacts all res-

idents, said Hinkle.


If its a good idea, you should voluntarily
help out, he said.
Horak said that the education foundation
already pays for a significant amount of programs and positions in the district, such as
extracurricular programs, librarians and
teaching aides.
But as the price of living goes up locally,
it becomes increasingly necessary for the
rest of the community to pitch in to support
schools, not just those who have students
enrolled in the district, she said.
An exemption is included in the ballot
measure, which will allow seniors to opt out
of paying the tax, should it pass.
Horak noted that only one of the three
people who signed documents with the county Elections Office opposing the tax actually live in San Carlos, and that the rest of the
community has been typically supportive of
financing measures that support local
schools.
Its in our collective best interest to
maintain good schools, she said.
But Hinkle said there is more to advocating for schools than supporting tax measures, such as ensuring parents are engaged in
their childs education at home.
If you just throw money at it, it aint
going to fix your problems, he said.

have to pull together and save water in every way we can.
After declaring a drought emergency
in January 2014, Brown urged all
Californians to cut water use by 20 percent from the previous year.
Despite increasingly stringent regulations imposed on local water agencies by the state, overall water use has
fallen by just half that amount,
prompting Brown to order the stronger
action by the water board.
Were in a new era; the idea of your

nice little green grass getting water


every day, thats going to be a thing of
the past, Brown said.
Brown asked for a 25 percent cut in
water use in 1977 during his first term
as governor. Since then, cities have
developed local storage and supplies to
soften the blow of future dry years,
making it harder to get residents to cut
back in the current drought.
For many Californians, water still
flows from taps without any extra hit
to their wallets.
The order issued Wednesday will
require campuses, golf courses, cemeteries and other large landscapes to significantly cut water use; direct local
governments to replace 50 million
square feet of lawns with drought-tolerant landscaping; and create a temporary
rebate program for consumers who
replace old water-sucking appliances
with more efficient ones.

President signs order creating


new cyber sanctions program
By Ken Dilanian
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON President Barack


Obama on Wednesday authorized a new
U.S. government approach to deterring
cyberattacks: financial sanctions
against malicious overseas hackers and
companies that knowingly benefit
from the fruits of cyberespionage.
The latter category could include
state-owned corporations in Russia,
China and elsewhere, setting the stage
for major diplomatic friction if the
sanctions are employed in that way.
Cyberthreats pose one of the most
serious economic and national security
challenges to the United States, Obama
said in a statement after signing an
executive order creating the first sanctions program aimed at cyberattacks.
The order was the latest attempt by
his administration to come up with
options short of direct retaliation to
deal with a growing cyberthreat coming
from both nations and criminal groups.
It gives the U.S. the authority to levy
sanctions on individuals and companies, though no specific penalties were
announced.
We are excited about this new tool

said John Smith, who directs the
Treasury Department division that will
administer the sanctions.
Obama said the sanctions would
apply to those engaged in malicious
cyberactivity that aims to harm critical
infrastructure, damage computer systems and steal trade secrets or sensitive
information. To be subject to sanc-

tions, the hacking would have to be


deemed to have harmed the national
security or the economic health of the

them from the American financial system, would also apply to a corporation

Shifting winds blew the flames out of control. The fire

POST purchases
74-acre farm in San Gregorio
Peninsula Open Space Trust has acquired
74 acres of farmland in San Gregorio for
$3. 1 million from a longtime farming
family,
the
nonprofit
announced
Wednesday.
With a half-mile frontage on Highway
84 and most of the property located within
the state-designated scenic corridor for
Highway 1, the land was an attractive
prospect for development when POST
stepped in to preserve it, POST
announced.
The San Gregorio property consists
almost entirely of prime soils, a designation that means it has the best combination of characteristics for agricultural production. Nearly 90 percent of the property
is used for growing row crops such as
strawberries, Brussels sprouts, peas and
pumpkins. San Gregorio Creek borders
3,000 feet of the property and is important steelhead habitat. There is an on-site
reservoir and an extensive irrigation system critically important features that
allow the farm to remain in production
while minimizing impacts on water
resources during the current drought,
according to POST.
POST has protected three other properties in the local area Arata Ranch, San
Gregorio Ranch and Toto Ranch
through the use of conservation easements
that permanently protect the natural
resources on those lands. POST has
already identified a tenant for the property
so farming activity can resume this
spring. POSTs long-term goal is to sell
the property to a private operator with the
stipulation it remain in agriculture.

Parking lot meth


dealer pleads no contest
A man accused of selling methamphetamine in the parking lot of a Redwood City
Orchard Supply Hardware faces up to five
years in prison after pleading no contest,
according to the San Mateo County
District Attorneys Office.
Jose Luis Mercardo-Fernandez, 34, made
his plea Thursday and is due back in court
for sentencing June 2.

Local briefs
Meanwhile, two other
defendants caught up in

Wednesday for review
conferences.
A DEA agent purchased
a pound of meth for
Jose Mercado- $5,000 from MercardoFernandez, a Redwood
Fernandez
City resident, on Oct. 8,
2014, and set up a second buy for 3 pounds
of meth Jan. 29.
On that buy, a second suspect, Sergio
Rodriguez, allegedly showed up with the
meth and both he and Mercardo-Fernandez
were arrested.
They implicated a third individual, Luis
Pallares Rodriguez, aka Raymundo Serna
Cerda, as their supplier although when
police arrested him they only found a single bindle of cocaine, according to the
District Attorneys Office.
Both Sergio Rodriguez and Luis
Rodriguez are due back in court April 21
for a preliminary hearing.

Three construction sites


burglarized in San Carlos
Sheriffs deputies responded to three
construction site burglaries in San Carlos
Wednesday that occurred overnight.
In all three thefts, the suspects took various electric construction tools, such as
table saws, drills, nail guns and some hand
tools. In all of the thefts, the tools were
left unsecured inside the residence or
garage, according to the Sheriffs Office.
A vehicle of interest was seen in the area
of one of the thefts on Tuesday morning
driving by one of the scenes. It was
described as a 2000-2006 GMC Yukon or
Chevrolet Tahoe, brown, with large
chrome wheel rims. Two light-skinned
males were seen inside the vehicle, according to the Sheriffs Office.
Burlingame and Hillsborough police are
also investigating a string of tool thefts
in their cities, largely centered on construction sites. Burlingame police report
close to a dozen such burglaries since

Roofer pleads no contest to


storing hazardous materials
The owner of a Burlingame roofing company pleaded no contest Wednesday to
felony charges of storing and disposing of
hazardous materials at
storage
facilities,
according to the San
Mateo County District
Attorneys Office.
Willis Unga, 63, was
arraigned Friday on
accusations of renting
Willis Unga
storage
units
in
Redwood City and Burlingame and then
storing paint, industrial cleaning agents,
ammonia and coating stripper that were
previously stored at Unga Roofing and
Waterproofing in Burlingame on Davis
Road.
Unga was warned in 2009 by the San
Mateo County Environmental Health
Division about storing large quantities of
used and unused paint containers at the
warehouse, according to the District
Attorneys Office.
In 2013, Unga rented storage units from
Bair Island Mini Storage in Redwood City
and Public Storage in Burlingame where he
allegedly stored the hazardous materials.
He also allegedly stopped paying rent
on the storage units, according to the
District Attorneys Office.
Unga was sentenced to 90 days in county jail and three years probation.
He will be back in court May 15 to see
how much restitution he will have to pay
the two storage facilities, estimated to be
about $88,000.

Man killed in fiery


Pescadero crash identified
A man who died when his car crashed
down an embankment and burst into
flames in Pescadero on Friday night was
identified by the San Mateo County
Coroners Office Wednesday as 32-yearold Luis Martinez-Negrete.
Martinez-Negrete, a Pescadero resident,

was trapped in the vehicle after the crash


and died there, according to the Coroners
Office.
He was driving in the area of Pescadero
Creek Road and North Street at about 8:15
p.m. Friday when he failed to negotiate a
sweeping curve, sending his car down an
embankment, according to the California
Highway Patrol.
He crashed into another embankment
and the car burst into flames almost immediately upon impact, CHP officials said.
Martinez-Negrete had to be extricated
from the vehicle once the fire was out and
did not survive the crash and fire. His family and friends from the close-knit
Pescadero community arrived at the crash
scene shortly after the crash, according to
the CHP.
CHP investigators
learned that
Martinez-Negrete had left a local tavern
earlier in the evening and may have been
speeding.

Abandoned home
burns in suspicious fire
An abandoned house in Atherton burned
in a suspicious fire possibly started by
squatters early Wednesday morning, a fire
chief said.
The fire in the single-story home at 29
Shearer Drive was reported just before 5
a.m., Menlo Park Fire Protection District
Chief Harold Schapelhouman said.
Firefighters found the home completely
on fire. Because of concerns the floor
could collapse into the basement, firefighters fought the fire defensively from
outside, Schapelhouman said.
It took between 45 minutes and an hour
to get the fire under control, he said.
The home was abandoned and had no
utilities turned on. Suspicious fires, possibly from squatters, have started there in
the past. Investigators are treating
Wednesday mornings fire as suspicious,
Schapelhouman said.
No one was there when firefighters
arrived Wednesday morning but they called
in a dog to search for human remains, just
in case someone was inside when the fire
broke out, Schapelhouman said.
No firefighters were injured battling the
blaze.

Iraq hails victory


over Islamic State
extremists in Tikrit
By Qassim Addul-Zahra
and Sameer N. Yacoub
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TIKRIT, Iraq The government


declared victory in Tikrit on
Wednesday over extremists of the
Islamic State group, and it warned
the militants holding other Iraqi
provinces that they would be the
next to fall.
Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi
walked triumphantly along a street
in Tikrit, carrying an Iraqi flag and
surrounded by jubilant forces.
Across the border in Syria, however, Islamic State fighters made
their deepest foray yet into the
capital of Damascus by infiltrating
a Palestinian refugee camp, according to opposition activists and
Palestinian officials.
Iraqs victory over the extremists in Tikrit was seen as a key step
toward eventually driving the militants out of Mosul, Iraqs secondlargest city and the capital of
Nineveh province.
Defense Minister Khalid alObeidi announced the victory, saying security forces have accomplished their mission in the
monthlong offensive to rid
Saddam Husseins hometown and
the broader Salahuddin province of
the militant group.
We have the pleasure, with all
our pride, to announce the good

news of a magnificent victory,


Obeidi said in a video statement,
and he named the other Iraqi
provinces still being held by the
IS militants.
Here we come to you, Anbar!
Here we come to you, Nineveh, and
we say it with full resolution, confidence, and persistence, he said.
Al-Abadi said that military engineering units still need more time
to clear Tikrit of booby traps and
looked to the next steps for the
city and province.
God willing, there will be a fund
to rebuild areas destroyed by Daesh
and the war. Tikrit and Salahuddin
areas will be covered by this fund,
al-Abadi said, using the Arabic
acronym for the Islamic State
group.
The extremists seized Tikrit last
summer during its advance out of
Syria and across northern and
western Iraq.
Iraqi forces, including soldiers,
police officers, Shiite militias and
Sunni tribes, launched a largescale operation to recapture Tikrit
on March 2. Last week, the U.S.
launched airstrikes on the embattled city at the request of the Iraqi
government.
Recapturing Tikrit is seen as the
biggest win so far for Baghdads
Shiite-led government. The city is
about 130 kilometers (80 miles)
north of Baghdad on the road con-

necting the capital to Mosul.
Retaking it will help Iraqi forces
have a major supply link for any
future operation against Mosul.
White House spokesman Josh
Earnest said the victory was compelling evidence that the U.S.
strategy against IS was working.
He said the Tikrit operation had
been stalled for weeks but that
coalition airstrikes and advancing
local forces apparently caused IS
fighters to withdraw.
What is clear is that over the
last five days, this strategy of
backing up Iraqi security forces
that are multisectarian in nature
with coalition airstrikes is a pretty
powerful combination, Earnest
said.

Earlier Wednesday, Iraqi security


forces fired on snipers and
searched homes for remaining militants. Soldiers fanned out from
the charred, skeletal remains of the
Salahuddin provincial government
complex, captured Tuesday.
Militant mortar fire, which had
been intense in previous days, fell
silent Wednesday, with commanders saying only a few militant
snipers remained in the city. They
spoke on condition of anonymity
to discuss ongoing operations.
The objective, said Interior
Minister Mohammed Salem alGhabban, is now to restore normalcy as quickly as possible.
After clearing the area from
roadside bombs and car bombs, we

will reopen police stations to


restore normalcy in the city, and
we will form committees to supervise the return of people displaced
from their homes, al-Ghabban
said. He said the government will
help displaced residents return and
that a civil defense unit will be
combing the city for roadside
bombs and car bombs.
Daesh is completely defeated,
he added, using an Arabic name for
the group.
A satellite image of Tikrit,
released in February by the U.N.,
showed at least 536 buildings in
the city have been affected by the
fighting. Of those, at least 137
were destroyed and 241 were
severely damaged.

Faltering Iran nuclear talks extended again


By Matthew Lee
and George Jahn
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAUSANNE, Switzerland
With even a vague outline of an
Iran nuclear deal eluding their
grasp, negotiators headed for double overtime Wednesday night in a
marathon attempt to find common
ground for a more important task
forging a final deal by the end
of June.
Iran and six world powers had
cited progress in abandoning their
March 31 deadline for the basic
understanding that would prepare
the ground for a new phase of
negotiations on a substantive
deal. But as differences persisted
into late Wednesday, the State
Department
announced that
Secretary of State John Kerry was
postponing his departure and
would remain until at least
Thursday morning.
The talks the latest in more
than a decade of diplomatic efforts
to curb Irans nuclear prowess
will hit the weeklong mark on
Thursday, with diplomats from the
five permanent members of the
U. N. Security Council and
Germany scrambling to reach a
framework accord with Iran.
We continue to make progress
but have not reached a political
understanding, spokeswoman
Marie Harf said in announcing
Kerrys decision.
German
Foreign
Minister
Frank-Walter Steinmeier said
negotiators were still facing a
tough struggle.
A French diplomat said French
Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius
was heading for Lausanne less
than a day after he departed. Asked
why, the diplomat referred a
reporter to the ministers comments earlier in the day when he
said he would come back if there
were chances for a deal.
At the same time, Iranian
Foreign Minister Mohammed
Javad Zarif accused his countrys
negotiating partners, particularly
the U.S., of having defective
political will in the talks.

Iran extensions underscore Obamas dilemma


By Julie Pace
WASHINGTON President
Barack Obamas willingness to
extend Iranian nuclear talks at
least twice this week has laid bare
the dilemma he faces as he pursues a high-stakes accord.
Walking away from negotiations would strip Obama of a
legacy-shaping deal, deeply
complicate international efforts
to stop Irans suspected pursuit of
a bomb, and perhaps raise the
specter of U.S. military action
against Tehrans nuclear installations. But by blowing through
self-imposed deadlines, Obama
risks further antagonizing lawmakers in both parties who are

poised to take their own action to


upend a deal if they feel the president has been too conciliatory to
Tehran.
The initial response to the
extensions from Republicans
suggested they had already come
to that conclusion.
The longer the Obama administration stays at the negotiating
table with Iran, the more concessions it makes, said Texas Sen.
Ted Cruz, who is seeking the GOP
presidential nomination.
Montana Republican Sen.
Steve Daines said the desire for
successful negotiations should
not blind the Obama administration from the reality that only
Iran is benefiting from the current approach.

Citing progress in the


marathon negotiations, the U.S.
and its international negotiating
partners agreed earlier this week
to ignore a March 31 deadline to
reach a framework agreement
with Iran. After an extra day of
talks
in
Switzerland
on
Wednesday, the negotiators
agreed to continue their discussions at least into Thursday.
The end-of-March benchmark
was part of a two-pronged blueprint to bring the negotiations to
a close. The U.S. and its partners
Britain, France, Germany,
Russia and China aimed to
reach a framework agreement on
major issues by March, then
finalize technical details by the
end of June.

together, they are mutually exclusive, he told reporters. So our


friends need to decide whether they
want to be with Iran based on
respect or whether they want to
continue based on pressure.
The negotiators intention is to

produce a joint statement outlining general political commitments to resolve concerns about
the Iranians nuclear program in
exchange for relief of economic
sanctions against Iran. In addition, they are trying to fashion

other documents that would lay out


in more detail the steps they must
take by June 30 to meet those
goals.
But Iran has pushed back,
demanding a general statement
with few specifics. That is politi-

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

cally unpalatable for the Obama


administration, which must convince a hostile Congress that it
has made progress in the talks so
lawmakers do not enact new sanctions that could destroy the negotiations.
By blowing through selfimposed deadlines, Obama risks
further antagonizing lawmakers in
both parties who are poised to
take their own action to upend a
deal if they determine the president has been too conciliatory.
The initial response to the
extensions from Republicans suggested they had already come to
that conclusion.
It is clear, the negotiations are
not going well, said Sens. John
McCain and Lindsey Graham in a
statement. At every step, the
Iranians appear intent on retaining the capacity to achieve a
nuclear weapon.
Irans Zarif insisted the result of
this round of talks will not be
more than a statement. But a senior Western official said Irans
negotiating partners would not
accept a document that contained
no details. The official was not
authorized to speak to the negotiations by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Deputy
Iranian
Foreign
Minister Abbas Araghchi named
differences on sanctions relief as
one dispute but also suggested
some softening of Tehrans longterm insistence that all sanctions
be lifted immediately once a final
deal takes effect.
He told Iranian TV that economic, financial, oil and bank sanctions imposed by the U.S., the
European Union and others should
be done away with as the first
step of the deal. Alluding to separate U.N. sanctions, he said a
separate framework was needed
for them.
Araghchi has spoken of such an
arrangement before. But both
Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali
Khamenei and Iranian President
Hassan Rouhani have since
demanded full and total sanctions
lifting, and the floating of the
approach now suggested an
Iranian shift.

A batch of discouraging economic


news deepened investors concerns
about corporate earnings, pulling
major U.S. stock indexes down on
Wednesday for the second day in a row.
The modest slide cut the Standard &
Poors 500 indexs gain for the year to
less than one-tenth of a percent. Oil
prices surged above $50 a barrel on
signs that U.S. production growth is
slowing.
Payroll processor ADP said U.S.
companies added fewer jobs last month
than economists had expected, while
an index of manufacturing activity
declined for the fifth month in a row. In
addition, the government said U.S.
construction spending fell in February.
The data show we definitely hit a bit
of a slowdown in the first quarter, and
now investors are getting worried
about the upcoming earnings reports,
said Chris Gaffney, a senior market
strategist at EverBank Wealth
Management.
Many of the stocks that fell the most
on Wednesday were also some of the
biggest gainers during the first three
months of the year. The health care sector notched the biggest decline in the
S&P 500. Even so, its up 4.8 percent
this year, leading the nine other sectors in the index.

Weve had a long, good run by the


equity markets and, at times, investors
look for opportunities to maybe take
some gains off the table, Gaffney
said.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell
77.94 points, or 0.4 percent, to
17,698.18. The 30-company index
was down as much as 191 points. Its
down 0.7 percent for the year.
The S&P 500 index slid 8.16 points,
or 0.4 percent, to 2,059.69. The index
is now up 0.04 percent for the year.
The Nasdaq composite lost 20.66
points, or 0.4 percent, to 4,880.23.
The tech-heavy index ended is up about
3 percent this year.
Half of the 10 sectors in the S&P 500
fell. Telecommunications services led
among the gainers, rising 0.8 percent.
Macerich fell the most in the index,
sliding $5.60, or 6.6 percent, to
$78.73. The company slumped after
rival Simon Property Group called off
its hostile $16.8 billion takeover bid
for the shopping mall operator.
Investors have been weighing mixed
economic data this week in advance of
the next round of corporate earnings,
which begins next week.
On Tuesday, they got a dash of
encouraging data on consumer confidence, spending and home prices. But
Wednesdays slate clouded the economic picture.

Honda shows off dramatic new Civic coupe


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK If a sporty lime-green


metallic coupe shown at the New York
auto show is any indication, Honda
isnt playing it safe with the Civic
anymore.
When the company last rolled out a
new Civic four years ago, it took no
risks. The car was panned for unremarkable looks and a cheap interior,
with a chintzy plastic dashboard and
bed-sheet thin seat fabric.
The next-generation Civic unveiled
Wednesday has dramatic creases, a
longer hood, 20-inch wheels and a big
rear spoiler clearly designed to jettison the current cars dull appearance
and handling.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is the

return of the sporty Civic, Executive


Vice President John Mendel said at the
cars introduction.
Honda says the new car was
redesigned top to bottom, with U.S.
engineers and designers taking the
lead. Its got single-line LED tail
lights and a mean-looking front grille.
The distance between the front and rear
wheels is longer, and the car will get
all-new engines and transmissions.
Honda was short on details about the
10th-generation Civic. Executives did
say higher-end versions will get a 1.5Liter turbocharged engine, a first for
Honda in the states. The Civic will
debut in the fall with a sedan, followed
later by the Coupe and an R-Type high
performance version. A five-door

hatchback and other unspecified variations are planned as well.


Mendel said Honda is confident the
new versions will attract people of all
ages worldwide. The cars also will
have refined handling as well as a spacious quiet interior, he said.
The Civic will get new engines and
transmissions, including a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder motor
in higher-end models, Honda said. It
will have new six-speed manual or continuously variable transmissions.
After the last Civic roll-out in 2011,
critics said Honda cut costs to take
profits at the wrong time just as
Ford, Chevrolet, Hyundai and others
were coming out with improved compacts.

Next-generation GMOs: Pink pineapples and purple tomatoes


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Cancer-fighting
pink pineapples, heart-healthy purple
tomatoes and less fatty vegetable oils
may someday be on grocery shelves
alongside more traditional products.
These genetically engineered foods
could receive government approval in
the coming years, following the OK
recently given to apples that dont
brown and potatoes that dont bruise.
The companies and scientists that

have created these foods are hoping


that customers will be attracted to the
health benefits and convenience and
overlook any concerns about genetic
engineering.
I think once people see more of the
benefits they will become more
accepting of the technology, says
Michael Firko, who oversees the
Agriculture Departments regulation of
genetically modified organisms, or
GMOs.
Critics arent so sure. They say there

should be more thorough regulation of


modified foods, which are grown from
seeds engineered in labs, and have
called for mandatory labeling of those
foods. The Agriculture Department has
the authority only to oversee plant
health relative to GMOs, and seeking
Food and Drug Administrations safety
approval is generally voluntary.
Many of these things can be done
through traditional breeding, says
Doug Gurian-Sherman of the advocacy
group Center for Food Safety.

sonally adjusted 189,000 jobs last


month. That was below market expectations for an increase of around
250,000. Also, the Institute for Supply
Managements U.S. manufacturing
index slipped in March, reflecting
slower growth in factory orders. U.S.
construction spending declined in
February for the second month in a row.
Its likely the weak ADP jobs report
prompted some traders to make moves
on Wednesday in anticipation that the
governments March payroll employment tally will also be discouraging.
That report is due out Friday, but U.S.
markets will be closed for the Good
Friday holiday.
Earnings for companies in the S&P
500 index are expected to be down 3.1
percent overall, according to S&P
Capital IQ. Investors have reduced
expectations for corporate earnings
due to concerns over the impact falling
oil prices and a strong dollar may have
on big companies. The dollar has
strengthened by about 9 percent so far
this year.
We think the second quarter probably wont look very good as well, said
James Liu, Global Market Strategist for
J.P. Morgan Asset Management. The
hope is that by the third and fourth
quarters, these two big effects with the
U.S. dollar and oil will have stabilized,
and so youll see a bounce back in earnings at that point.

Buisness briefs
Survey: U.S. businesses add 189k jobs in March
WASHINGTON U.S. businesses slowed their pace of
hiring in March, a private survey found. The modest gains
suggest that harsh winter weather has generated a broader
slowdown that caused the survey to report gains of less
than 200,000 jobs for the first time in 13 months.
Companies added a seasonally adjusted 189,000 jobs
last month, payroll processor ADP said Wednesday. Thats
down from gains of 214,000 in February.
The slowdown in hiring was largely concentrated
among firms with more than 1,000 employees. They
added just 12,000 jobs last month, compared to 43,000 in
February.
The construction, financial and trade and transportation
sectors all reported adding jobs at a slower pace in March
than February.
Manufacturers shed 1,000 jobs in March, which likely
reflects the twin drags of falling oil prices and a stronger
dollar. Drilling rigs have stopped as oil prices have
stayed near $50 a barrel, curbing demand for pipelines and
machinery from factories.

McDonalds joins Wal-Mart,


Gap, other companies in raising wages
NEW YORK McDonalds said Wednesday it is raising
pay for workers at restaurants that the company owns.
Heres a look at all the big companies that recently have
announced they are boosting hourly wages for their
employees:
In February Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the largest private
employer in the U.S., said it will boost its minimum pay
to $9 an hour in April and to $10 by February 2016. That
means 500,000 employees will get a raise.
TJX Cos., the parent of discount store operator TJ Maxx
and Marshalls, said in February that it will pay all of its
U.S. workers at least $9 an hour starting in June.

Banged up Miami, Stanford meet in NIT final


By Rachel Cohen
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK The Miami Hurricanes were


down to their fourth point guard. They had four
freshmen on the court during one stretch, and
players found themselves in roles they never
filled during the regular season.
And yet its April and banged-up, short-handed Miami still has a game left. The Hurricanes
face Stanford on Thursday at Madison Square
Garden for the NIT championship.

Coach Jim Larranaga wishes he had Angel


Rodriguez and a healthy Manu Lecomte to
defend Cardinal guard Chasson Randle, who on
Tuesday became the schools all-time leading
scorer. He would love to put 7-foot Tonye Jekiri
on another Stanford senior, center Stefan
Nastic.
But Larranaga cant do any of that. Then
again, his players have often performed their
best when the task was most daunting.
We play much better when we are loose,
Larranaga said. We like being the underdog.

We like having to overcome adversity and


unfortunately we even like to overcome
deficits.
They rallied from down double digits for the
second straight game to beat Temple in
Tuesdays semifinals. With Rodriguez already
out because of a nagging wrist problem and his
backup, Lecomte, hobbled by a bum knee, the
Hurricanes lost Jekiri to a concussion early on.
Davon Reed had also tweaked his knee during
the shootaround, but he wound up playing and
playing well.

When JaQuan Newton, the third-string


point guard nursing a thumb injury of his own,
needed a rest, fourth option Deandre Burnett
took over. Leading scorer Sheldon McClellan
also ran the point some, which the wing never
did until two games ago. And freshmen Omar
Sherman and James Palmer were pressed into
some critical minutes.
Right now we are going to have a practice
and I have to figure out which one of the guys is
going to get hurt this afternoon, Larranaga

The
time
Colts shut down Mills
of my life
By Nathan Mollat

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Both the El Camino and Mills baseball


teams have struggled outside of Peninsula
Athletic League competition this season.
The Colts faced the Vikings Wednesday
having lost six of eight non-league games.
Mills has struggled even more. The
Vikings were 0-7 against teams outside the
PAL Lake Division.
Wednesday, El Camino picked up its third
non-league win of the year, shutting out
Mills 5-0.
We started off (our season) 0-6. We had
some tough losses, said El Camino manager Mike Ohman. Once we got to league
we found something in ourselves.
Right now, the Colts are on a roll.
Wednesdays win was their fourth in a row
all by shutout. Yesterdays starter, Jesser
Hernandez, had his second straight strong
outing, limiting Mills to just four hits.
Hernandez retired the rst 11 batters he faced
before Mills Jordan Ganim broke up the
perfect game by legging out an ineld hit
deep in the hole at shortstop.
Using a funky, three-quarters to sidearm
delivery that put wicked movement on every
pitch, Hernandez kept the Vikings off balance all game long.
Hes from Nicaragua, so he just has that
air, Ohman said. We knew hed pitch a lot
this year. The coach for their team (Mills)
said of their hitters they didnt know if it
was a fastball or an offspeed pitch.
Mills manager Tony Adornetto broke it
down simply: Their guy threw strikes and
we had a pretty bad approach at the plate.
His ball was moving. We just couldnt
make an adjustment.
Offensively, the Colts did not bang the
ball all over the park. Mills starter Ganim
did not allow an extra-base hit in six
innings of work. By the time Ganim nished
his outing, however, El Camino had tagged
him for ve runs (four earned) on nine hits
all singles.
Ganim usually throws on Tuesday. His
last two starts were way better. Hes really

first became a Golden State Warriors


fan in the early 1980s. One of my first
recollections of the team was the trade
of a young center, Robert Parrish, to the
Boston Celtics and it was all pretty much
downhill from there.
So while the Warriors had won the NBA
title five or six years before I first discovered them, as far as Im concerned, they had
never won anything in my lifetime. My
sports lifetime that time between now
and when I first
became a fan.
So when they captured their first Pacific
Division title in 39
years with a win over
the Portland
Trailblazers last week,
it really brought into
crystal-clear focus just
how special a season
this is for the Warriors
and their fans.
To put that in perspective: the last time
Golden State had won a division title in
1976, I was 6 years old still about four or
five years before even recognizing what
professional basketball was.
Thirty-nine years. Thats two generations
of Bay Area of basketball fans going without celebrating any kind of title.
And now? Expectations are more than just
a division crown. Its essentially NBA
championship-or-bust right now and the
Warriors are not showing any indication
that they should not be the odds-on favorite
to be the last ones standing at the end.
Theyve beaten every team in the league
this year, they are currently riding a 10game winning streak to go along with a 16game streak earlier in the season. They are
on pace to have one of the top-5 greatest
NBA seasons in the history of the league.
Golden State, however, still needs to go

Club volleyball player files lawsuit over playing time


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FAIRFAX, Va. A 16-year-old club volleyball player and her family are suing after
they say her coaches spiked her playing
time, telling her she didnt have the skills
to compete with her Virginia team, and her
league blocked a transfer to another club.
Audrey Dimitrew and her family sued the

Coaches told her she had the potential to
play college volleyball, the lawsuit says,
and that she would get significant tournament game experience as one of two setters
on the team.
But things changed after the season

began, her attorney Robert J. Cunningham


said, and she was told she didnt have the
skills to compete with the team. Audrey, a
10th grader at Woodgrove High School in
Purcellville, Virginia, was told by her
coaches that she could transfer to another
club team in the league if she wanted, the

lawsuit says. She thought she had scored


when another team, NV Premier, wanted her,
but the league cried foul and said no to a
transfer. After several appeals to the league
were denied the family filed suit.
The lawsuit was first reported by The
Washington Post. The newspaper reports
the lawsuit is one several filed across the
country in recent years as more families
have turned to the courts to intervene in
youth sports disputes. The stakes can
include scholarships for players and an
advantage in college admissions.

Danny Diekroeger swings it in spring debut


Former Menlo, Stanford standout gets hit off Hillsboroughs Goeddel; Tuivailala optioned to Triple-A
By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Former Menlo School standout Danny


Diekroeger made an auspicious spring training debut for the St. Louis Cardinals, going
1 for 1 with an RBI and a run scored as the
Cards held on for a 5-4 win over the Mets
Wednesday in Port St. Lucie.
Pinch hitting in the seventh inning, the
left-handed hitting Diekroeger scorched a
double up the left-center field gap to score
Peter Bourjos. The knock came on the second pitch of the at-bat and the first swing
taken by Diekroeger.
Ive always been an aggressive hitter so
I felt good about it, Diekroeger said. It
felt good off the bat.
Diekroeger later scored on an RBI single
by Kolton Wong.
A Woodside native who was drafted out of
Stanford in the 10th round last season,

Diekroeger said he woke


up Wednesday morning
oblivious to the fact hed
be added to the big league
roster for the day. Hes
been in minor league
camp with the Cards for
the first time this season.
When he arrived at the
Cards minor league
Danny
locker room in Jupiter,
Diekroeger
Florida, there was a Postit note instructing him to report to the
major league bus at 9:30 a.m. for the 45minute ride to Port St. Lucie.
Still, Diekroeger said he wasnt sure if
hed actually get into the game until the
seventh inning when a Cardinals coach told
him he was batting second in the inning.
I had a feeling I was going to get in that
game so I was ready but there wasnt
much time to prepare for it, Diekroeger

said. The coach just told


me to grab my helmet
and get up there so it
was pretty cool.
The reason the 22year-old Diekroeger suspected he would get into
the game was because he
was one of the only leftErik Goeddel ies on the Cards bench
and the Mets brought in
a right-handed reliever. That righty is
another San Mateo County-based player,
Erik Goeddel, a Hillsborough native who
played at Bellarmine. Goeddel has made 11
appearances for the Mets this spring, tabbing a 1-0 record with a 4.66 ERA, working
9 2/3 innings while yielding 11 hits and
one walk against 10 strikeouts.
Goeddel made his major league debut last
season with the Mets, pitching in six
games with a 2.70 ERA. He was a 24th round

draft pick out of UCLA in 2010. Goeddels


younger brother, Tyler, was drafted out of St.
Francis in 2011 and is a third base prospect
with the Tampa Bay Rays.
Also in camp with the Cardinals this
spring is former Aragon star Sam Tuivailala.
The right-handed reliever was optioned to
Triple-A Memphis March 21 after making
four appearances, posting a 0-1 record with
a 6.75 ERA. Tuivailala made his major
league debut last season on Sept. 9, 2014.
He appeared in two games for the Cardinals,
totaling one inning while surrendering two
home runs and posting an inflated 36.00
ERA.
Diekroeger made his professional debut
last season in short-season ball with the

Serena Williams wins 700th match


By Steven Wine
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. Serena Williams abused her racket, scolded herself and even made angry faces at the sun.
In the end, as usual, she took out her frustration on the
ball.
The seven-time Key Biscayne champion overcame her
annoyance and shaky play Wednesday for her 700th career
victory, beating Sabine Lisicki 7-6 (4), 1-6, 6-3 to reach
the seminals of the Miami Open.
Williams won despite an unreliable serve, a poor second
set and 51 unforced errors. She looked atfooted and listless
at times, and seemed especially vexed when playing on the
side looking into the sun.
Its always tough on that side, she said. You just dont
see. You just have to adjust.
She did, earning her 16th consecutive victory on Key
Biscayne, where shes the two-time defending champion.
I know today wasnt my best day, she said. I just told
myself, Im not serving the way I normally serve and hitting the way I normally would hit, so at this point all I can
do is just ght and try to give 200 percent instead of 100
percent.
The No. 1-seeded Williams opponent Thursday night will
be No. 3 Simona Halep, who beat unseeded American Sloane
Stephens 6-1, 7-5. No. 9 Andrea Petkovic plays No. 12
Carla Suarez Navarro in the other seminal.
Two-time champion Andy Murray advanced to the mens
seminals by rallying past unseeded Dominic Thiem 3-6, 6-

4, 6-1. Murrays opponent Friday will be


the winner of the quarternal Wednesday
night between No. 8 Tomas Berdych and
unseeded Juan Monaco.
Williams improved her record to 700120, making her the eighth woman in
the Open Era to reach the milestone. She
was presented with a cake on the court,
similar to the honor Murray received following his 500th victory Tuesday.
Serena
I think my destiny was to play tenWilliams
nis, Williams said. I saw a picture
where I was in a stroller on the tennis court.
The No. 1-seeded Williams withdrew before the Indian
Wells seminal earlier this month with a right knee injury.
She had been scheduled to play Halep, who went on to win
the title and leads the womens tour with 24 victories this
year.
I was really disappointed to not be able to play and just
not even be close to 100 percent, Williams said. So I look
forward to it this time. Im just happy to be in the semis and
still be alive somehow.
It will be a very nice match, Halep said. I have to try
everything. She is No. 1 in the world. Shes the best player.
I have nothing to lose.
For much of Williams quarternal, she trailed Lisicki in
st pumps and points, and let frustration quickly show.
After losing three consecutive games to fall behind 4-3 in
the rst set, the Floridian pounded the court with her racket
and drew jeers in the stadium she considers her home court.

Chavez deals, Canha homers in As win


By Rick Eymer
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MESA, Ariz. Jesse Chavez allowed


three hits in six innings, Mark Canha homered and the Oakland Athletics beat the Los
Angeles Angels 4-1
Wednesday to finish their
first spring training at
HoHoKam Park with a 141 record.
Billy Burns drove in a
run on his major leagueleading 29th hit, the
most by an As player in
spring training since
Jesse Chavez Tony Phillips had 30 in
1999. J.P. Sportsman
also homered.
C.J. Cron had two doubles and drove in a
run for the Angels.
Drew Rucinski gave up three runs and six
hits in 5 1-3 innings, walked one and struck
out four.
Chavez, who has a 3.27 ERA, allowed an
unearned run, struck out six and walked one.

Starting time
Ang el s : Rucinski likely will start the
season in the bullpen for the Angels, though
he is on track to make a start on April 14, the
first time a fifth starter is needed. That is the
same day Garrett Richards is scheduled to
begin a minor league injury rehabilitation
assignment.
Athl eti cs : While Chavez has not been
told what his role will be when the season
starts, he also seems resigned to being the
long man out of the bullpen.
Im sure they had their minds made up
from the beginning, he said. Im satisfied
personally and team wise. The guys around
here can see it. Well see what happens.

Howies homecoming
INF Howie Kendrick, traded to the Dodgers
during the offseason for left-hander Andrew
Heaney, returns to Angels Stadium for the
first time in an opposing uniform Thursday
night.
Kendrick spent his first 13 years in the
Angels organization, the past nine with the
big club.

It will be a little strange, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. Im so used seeing
him out there at second base. Weve seen him
enough to know hes a good hitter. He hits
the ball as hard as any right-hander with the
exception of one or two.

Coming together
The biggest takeaway from camp, according to As manager Bob Melvin, has been the
speed of how the group has come together in
the clubhouse.
Its been a good spring all the way around
with the new guys coming together, Melvin
said. Weve had reasonable success with
guys who have not been together before.
The As likely will start new players at six
positions, including designated hitter. The
lone holdovers are right-hander Sonny Gray,
catcher Stephen Vogt and outfielders Craig
Gentry and Sam Fuld.
The defense has been terrific, Melvin
said. Thats one area we thought we needed
shoring up.

trainers table

Ang el s : Richards (left knee surgery) is to


make two more appearances at extended
spring training before he is sent on a rehab
assignment. Richards is scheduled to throw
in a minor league game Thursday, and then in
another controlled game on April 9. Its
good for him to catch his breath, Scioscia
said. Its not necessarily needed but he can
work on things in between starts.
Athl eti cs : OF Coco Crisp reported some
soreness in his elbow, though Melvin said it
is not a concern. Hes the one guy on the

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. World Series MVP


Madison Bumgarner outpitched AL Cy
Young Award winner Corey Kluber, and the
San Francisco Giants completed their
Arizona portion of the exhibition season
by beating the Cleveland Indians 5-2
Wednesday.
Bumgarner allowed one run and five hits
in four innings with four strikeouts in his
final tuneup for Mondays opener at
Arizona. He did not get a decision, leaving
his spring training record at 0-3. The World
Series champion Giants are 11-20.
Kluber, who starts Monday at Houston,
gave up three runs and five hits in 4 2-3
innings, including a two-run homer by Matt
Duffy that allowed the Giants to erase a 2-1

deficit in the fifth. He was 0-2 in exhibition


games.
Brett Bochy son of Giants manager Bruce
Bochy, won despite allowing one run, two
hits and a walk int he fifth.

Indi ans : Kluber said he is physically


and mentally ready to go for the season
opener at Houston. Im right where I want
to be, he said.
He threw 100 pitches in his previous start
but was a bit less than that here, by design.
Bumgarner took a mighty swing against
him in the third, nearly coming out of his
shoes and going to one knee.
That was a huge swing, Kluber said.
Gi ants : Bumgarner knows his spring
training statistics were not great.
No matter what anybody else expects, it

Indi ans : 1B-OF Nick Swisher (knee surgery) played his first game of the big league
exhibition season as the DH and went 2 for
3 with an RBI single in the fourth.
Gi ants : Backup C Hector Sanchez limped
around after fouling consecutive pitches off
his foot in the ninth, but was expected to be
OK.

Duffy does it
One of the few opening-day roster spots
available for the Giants appears to be in the

infield. Matt Duffy took extra pre-game


work at third base with bench coach Ron
Wotus and played the entire game there.

Bourn identity
Cleveland leadoff hitter Michael Bourn
had a bunt single in the fifth and scored the
teams second run, giving him a team-leading 20 hits.

Up next
Indi ans : Cleveland plays Cincinnati in
Goodyear on Thursday.
Gi ants : The Giants were to fly back to
the Bay area and host the start of their annual three-game exhibition Bay Bridge Series
against Oakland on Thursday. RHPs Jake

the repeal or revision of Indianas new religious objection law, the NCAA faces a decision about whether to look for a new venue
for next years womens Final Four.
NCAA President Mark Emmert has indicated the Indianapolis-headquartered organization would consider relocating all types of
college sports events out of state if the law
doesnt change. But none on the calendar is
quite as urgent as next years womens championship.
Indianas capital city, which has built an
economy and reputation as an attractive base
for major sports events, is being watched
carefully as fallout swells about the law,
which opponents say amounts to legalized
discrimination. The NCAA was among the
first sports organizations to express concern
with the law when it was signed by Gov. Mike
Pence last week, and many others have followed, including the NFL, the NBA and
NASCAR.
The mens Final Four is in Indianapolis this
weekend and could not have been moved on
short notice. But officials have made it clear
there is enough time to consider relocating
future events, and that they want an environment welcoming to all athletes and fans.

This is a team that won at Duke by 16
points but lost at home to Eastern Kentucky
by 28. The Hurricanes seemed to play their
best early in the season when injuries limited the rotation and each guy knew his contributions were crucial, Larranaga said.
The chemistry was rough at times when
players got healthy and rejoined the lineup.

convention
in
Indianapolis, abiding by a travel ban ordered
by Connecticuts governor.
UConn Athletic Director Warde Manuel said
he hopes the Huskies womens team, which
is making its eighth straight Final Four
appearance in Tampa, Florida, this weekend,
will not be faced with difficult decision about
whether the team should participate next
year.
If (the law) doesnt change than I would
encourage the NCAA to look to move the
venue so that we wouldnt get into a situation
where any institution would have to consider
that kind of choice, he said.
Final Four sites are set years in advance,
though Indianapolis is penciled in for one
every five years in both the mens and
womens tournaments as part of an agreement
between the city and the NCAA.
Next year, as part of the 35th anniversary
of NCAA womens basketball, the Division II
and III championships will also be held in
Indianapolis. That would make moving the
event more complicated, but not impossible.
It takes more than a year to plan a Final
Four, Browne said. If that is the direction
the NCAA chooses to go, wed have to figure
it out.

Whats going on in Indiana is troubling,


NCAA vice president of womens basketball
championships Anucha Browne said
Wednesday.
We will assess all our championships in
the state of Indiana. We do anyway. We want
to ensure that student athletes have a positive
experience wherever we take them and our
fans to. Its the right thing to do.
The Indiana law prohibits any laws that
substantially burdens a persons ability to
follow his or her religious beliefs. The definition of person includes religious institutions, businesses and associations.
Although the legal language does not
specifically mention gays and lesbians, critics say the law is designed to protect businesses and individuals who do not want to
serve gays and lesbians, such as florists or
caterers who might be hired for a same-sex
wedding.
Pence on Tuesday asked lawmakers to send
him a clarification of the states new religious-freedom law later this week. Emmert is

set to address reporters Thursday afternoon,


and is expected to face questions about the
college governing bodys stance on the
issue.
The Final Four will bring thousands of visitors to downtown Indianapolis over the next
five days, along with hordes of media to
cover one of the most popular events on the
sports calendar. That makes Lucas Oil
Stadium, the site of Saturdays semifinals
between Duke and Michigan State and
Wisconsin and Kentucky, the perfect place for
protesters to be heard and seen.
Indianapolis is planning to have a noticeably higher police presence in the citys
downtown area during the Final Four weekend, and officials have created a designated
area immediately south of the Lucas Oil
Stadium where people can hold protests, said
Al Larsen, spokesman for the citys
Department of Public Safety.
Already, some have said they wont attend
this years Final Four.

Then Miami didnt respond well to the pressure when it earned a Top 25 ranking in late
January.
Too many bad losses overshadowed the
quality victories by the time the NCAA
Tournament field was picked. But the
Hurricanes have found ways to win since
then even as the injuries piled up, and on
Thursday theyll seek their first NIT title.
We are constantly making adjustments,
and the best part about the team is they are
very receptive and understanding that this
has been created by circumstance,
Larranaga said.
And they are willing listeners and then
going out and executing the plan. But leav-

ing them in that right mental frame of mind


of being loose and keeping it pretty simple,
not making it too complicated for them, has
really been a good formula.
Like Miami, Stanford seemed to be well
on its way to an NCAA Tournament berth in
mid-January. But by the time Selection
Sunday arrived, the Cardinal had lost eight
of their last 12, plagued by their own injury
bug.
Seniors Randle, Nastic and Anthony
Brown account for nearly two-thirds of the
teams scoring, and after last years Sweet
16 run, motivation could have been hard to
find in the NIT.
Instead, Stanford has reached the final for

the second time in four seasons. Randle and


Brown combined for 26 points on 11-of-20
shooting in the victory over Minnesota in
2012 (Nastic was a little-used reserve at the
time).

scoring runs. In the second inning, Thomas


Cronin singled and stole second, went to
third on a sacrice bunt and scored on the
rst of three Tyler Birch RBIs. Birch would
go on to steal second later in the inning and
scored on a Ivan Vargas single to left.
In the Colts three-run fth, Vargas single-handedly worked himself around the
bases. He singled and went to second on a
wild pitch. With Andrew Pierotti at the
plate, Vargas took off for third. He swiped it
easily when the pitch got away from the
Mills catcher and when Vargas saw the

pitcher wasnt covering the plate, he broke


for home, beating the throw to put El
Camino up 3-0.
Valdez and Cronin later singled in the fth
and Mike Ruiz walked to load the bases.
Birch followed with a two-run single to left
to put the Colts up 5-0.
Over the last two, three weeks we started
coming around with the bats, Ohman said.
For us to win, we have to play small ball.
Take an extra base on a bad play. Put pressure on the defense. Make them make mistakes.

That was more than enough offense for


Hernandez, who threw an 96-pitch complete
game. He started to run out of gas in the seventh and the Vikings had their best at-bats
of the day against him at the end of the
game. Matt Pettenato and Daniel Walsh had
back-to-back singles in the seventh, but the
Vikings failed to move a runner past second
base all game long.

They want to play in the postseason, of


course, like everyone else in the NCAA, and
it wasnt to be. What I really respect about
them is they didnt put their heads down,
coach Johnny Dawkins said. They said,
You know what? You earn what you get. We
didnt earn that opportunity. Weve earned
an opportunity to play in the NIT, so lets
make the most out of it.

With [Hernandez] throwing, one or two


runs may as well been 10, Adornetto said.

Decisions ahead
for NCAA family
travel program
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Getting to the Final Four wont


be as costly for the parents of many
players this week, thanks to an
NCAA pilot program that is helping pay for families of athletes to
travel and see their sons and daughters play in the biggest college
basketball games of the season.
The family travel program was
approved in January. It allowed the
College Football Playoff to pay for
the parents or guardians of Ohio
State and Oregon players to travel
to Arlington, Texas for the national championship game and for the
NCAA to pay for family members
of the players participating in the
mens Final Four in Indianapolis
and womens in Tampa, Florida this
weekend.
The next step is for the NCAA to
decide whether to make it permanent and some, such as Ohio
State athletic director Gene Smith,
want to expand it to the championships for all sports.
Under the program, the College
Football Playoff and NCAA were
allowed to provide schools $3,000
per player per team to cover travel,
food and hotel costs for two parents
or guardians.
Smith said 87 of 110 Ohio State
football players took advantage of
the benet that was implemented
through an NCAA waiver just days
before the national title game.
NCAA rules prohibit schools
from directly paying for travel
expenses of players family members though it is allowable in

some instances for schools to use


the student assistance fund but
ofcials determined it could be done
if event organizers paid.
Smith and Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens were instrumental,
along with NCAA executive vice
president for championships Mark
Lewis, in making the pilot program happen on short notice. Now
the ADs are endorsing making it
permanent, which would take legislation passed by the full Division I
membership.
Television and media contracts
for the College Football Playoff
make hundreds of millions of dollars annually for FBS conferences
and the NCAA tournaments TV deal
pays the association more than
$700 million per year.
Expanding the program to other
sports is not so easy. No other
championship brings in that kind
of revenue.
The challenge with the expansion of this in going to all sports is
that it reduces the pile of money
that can be distributed back to the
schools for them to use as they see
t, Smith said. That will be one
of the challenges getting it past
351 (Division I schools) and for all
sports. I think football, mens and
womens basketball will be pretty
easy.
Smith said expanding the program by allowing individual
schools to make the payments
could be a matter for the ve most
powerful conferences to take up
now that they can make some of
their own rules under autonomy.

JUPITER, Fla. Utilityman


Kevin Frandsen has been put on
unconditional release waivers by
the Washington Nationals.
Frandsen agreed in November to a
$1 million, one-year contract that
was not guaranteed. He will receive
45 days termination pay, which
comes to $245,902.
He became expendable following
the signing of free agent Reed

Johnson and the


acquisition of
Matt den Dekker
in a trade with
the New York
M e t s .
Wednesday was
the last day to
put players on
and
Kevin Frandsen waivers
remove them
from the roster before salaries are
guaranteed.
Frandsen hit .259 with one home

run and a team-high 11 pinch hits


last season, his first in
Washington. He made 42 starts and
played in 105 games for the NL East
champions, appearing in left field
and at every infield position but
shortstop.
He managed only three hits in 35
at-bats during spring training.
Washington also reassigned outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. to minor
league camp.

Should CHRVA allow players the ability
to move teams when they are unhappy with
the amount of playtime they are receiving,
we would be overwhelmed with requests to
change teams, a league official wrote in a
January 26 letter to Audreys parents.
The leagues handbook says players are
ordinarily forbidden to transfer teams but
can switch if they show a verifiable hardship condition exists. The Dimitrews
attorney says thats true in Audreys case.
The league disagrees.
An attorney for the league, Kenneth G.

who they would only meet in the NBA
Finals.
The Spurs, more than any other team in
the NBA, hold a spell over the Warriors
seldom seen. Golden State has not won a
regular-season road game in San Antonio
since the Bill Clinton was president of the
United States in 1997.
While Golden State did beat them once in
the second round of the 2013 playoffs, the
AT&T Center has been Golden States own
personal house of horrors.
On top of all that, the Spurs are the
defending NBA champions.
However the lawsuit turns out, Audrey is
likely out of luck for the season. The lawsuit says just one tournament remains in the
club season, though depending on NV
Premiers season performance it may be eligible for other tournaments.
On March 12, a Circuit Court judge denied
a preliminary injunction in the case, saying
the law required him to defer to the decision
of the league. According to a transcript of
the proceedings Judge John M. Tran called
Audreys case unfortunate, and he said he
was unhappy that a child is not given an
opportunity to play. He did not dismiss the
case, however, and said the issue has the
possibility of recurring in the future.
George R. A. Doumar, an attorney for

Volleyball Club continues to wish the best

The Grizzlies have the sheer size and


physicalness to beat down the Warriors.
While Golden State did whip up on the
Grizzlies last week, 107-84, Memphis
showed in first meeting of the year what
their front line of Marc Gasol and Zach
Randolph can do as they combined for 41
points and 17 rebounds against an Andrew
Bogut-less Warriors lineup.

Add in point guard Kyrie Irving and forward Kevin Love and the Cavaliers will be
a force to be reckoned with in the playoffs.
And if the Warriors come up short of their
first NBA title since the 1974-75 season
(when I was 5 years old)? I wont say the
season has been a disappointment. Rather,
it will always be the most remarkable run
by the Warriors in Ive seen in my lifetime.

And of course the Cavaliers have the best


basketball player on the planet in LeBron
James, with all due respect to Steph Curry.
James has molded and cajoled that
Cleveland squad into the beast of the East.

what type of feedback it would submit to the
City Council on the proposal to update the
Belmont Zoning and Tree ordinances. The
commission is slated to continue reviewing
the proposed amendments and environmental document April 7. Eventually, the City
Council will review and possibly adopt the
proposed changes fashioned by the work
between city staff and a subcommittee comprised of Councilman Charles Stone and
Vice Mayor Eric Reed.
At its previous meeting, the commission
unanimously agreed to support creating a
tiered review system whereby simple additions would be reviewed at a staff level and
larger projects would make their way to a
commission hearing.
Compared to other cities, Belmont has
the lowest threshold to trigger a single-family design review as the commission considers any addition of 400 square feet or
more, has the strictest parking requirements
and the least objective review criteria,
according to Senior Planner Damon
DiDonato.
Commissioners wholeheartedly agreed on
the need to ease Belmonts guidelines that
make remodels difficult for growing families. However, they differed on to what
extent the city might reduce parking requirements and whether to completely eliminate
a cap on home sizes, particularly as the city
has one of the more stringent 3,500-squarefoot limits for most properties regardless of
lot size.
Commissioners heard from numerous
members of the public with varying opinions on the proposed changes at meetings
and via written correspondence. The range
includes citizens with grave concerns oversized McMansions will sprout up in the city
while others pleaded to be able to more easily expand their homes to account for growing families.
I can recognize the frustration of want-

The Loftuses were looking for a pool big

ing to keep things the way they are and


theres a proposal where things could
change drastically. But I think for many
folks its going to change in a positive
way, said Commission Vice Chair Davina
Hurt, according to a video of the meeting.

How big can you go?


The proposal to do away with a cap on
home sizes aroused concern among the public, despite the fact that six out of the eight
surrounding cities dont have maximums
and the two that do San Mateo and
Burlingame have much higher limits.
Staff said the 3, 500-square-foot and
4,500-square-foot caps in place for different
neighborhoods seemed arbitrary and the
commission unanimously agreed on amending it. Some were comfortable with eliminating the cap completely because other
restrictions, such as on grading and massing, keep a limit on home sizes. Still, others felt implementing a limit based on lot
size and slope would better suit the communitys concerns.
Theres some sentimental value to be
said for having something that says well
no, were not going to let people build
whatever they want, said Planning
Commissioner Amy Goldfarb.
Hurt said she doesnt think removing the
cap will greatly influence density within the
city and other commissioners expressed
hope it would allow more property owners
to improve their homes and bring them up
to code.

Secondary units
State law requires cities to allow second
units and Belmont already permits certain
property owners to construct an addition up
to 30 percent of the main homes size but no
more than 1,200 square feet, so long as they
live on site and provide parking.
The proposal would decrease the need for
owners to secure a conditional use permit to
those who have lots smaller than 5,000
square feet, require just one parking space
and allow the units to be up to 50 percent of
the main house but no more than 1,200
There was no room even for machinery
to start with, Archer-Wills said. The
restrictions imposed by the town meant that
we couldnt build within a certain distance

square feet.
Under the citys proposed Housing
Element, a state-mandated planning document whereby Belmont must show it can
accommodate growth over the next several
years, second units are encouraged to help
provide more affordable housing.
The commission agreed easing the restrictions on secondary units would support that
goal and, although state law has allowed for
the increase for nearly a decade, argued very
few have actually been built.
I agree that theres been a disproportionate amount of attention paid on something
like this. Its provocative, but the reality of
almost 15 years on record in Belmont, people are not doing this, Commission
Chair Doug Kim said.
Most agreed second units should provide
at least one additional parking spot on
sight, with some commissioners suggesting the number of bedrooms correlate to the
number of spaces.

Where to park
The seven commissioners agreed parking
requirements, particularly for smaller
remodels, should be amended, but to what
degree proved controversial.
Currently, new homes are required to provide four spaces, including two within a
garage. Many remodels, regardless if bedrooms arent being added, also require parking upgrades.
The proposed amendments would reduce
the requirement to three spaces, only one of
which must be covered for remodels and two
that must be covered for new homes or when
second units are added.
About half of the commissioners sought
to keep the four-car requirement for new
homes and most agreed to reducing the
requirements for smaller remodels, particularly as many of Belmonts mid-century
tract-style houses only have one-car

garages and can be expensive to upgrade.


With the parking issue, we do have narrow streets in Belmont and walking and biking in the streets is a challenge and its an
existing problem, Goldfarb said. For
home renovations, this is where it got
tough, because so many homes have a onecar garage and thats really the challenge for
many families.
All agreed a major concern is keeping
people from parking on the street and the
diversity of Belmonts neighborhoods offer
unique challenges. Commissioners Steve
Simpson and Kerry MacDonald also urged
that if homeowners opt to use carports to
satisfy covered parking requirements, the
space be counted toward the homes floor
area ratio so as not to incentivize people
against building garages.

Staying objective
The commissioners were extremely supportive of creating a companion document
to the proposed ordinances that would outline more specific objective review criteria.
While their input is set to be received by
the council by next week, creating singlefamily Residential Design Criteria would
require another public review process and
commissioners wanted to ensure theyre
heavily involved in creating the new guidelines.
The commission is set to continue its discussion next week, including the proposed
amendments to the tree ordinance that would
set rules for tree removal, as well as an environmental review of the changes. The public is encouraged to continue to provide
input online and its unlikely there will be
another comment opportunity during the
meetings continuation next week.

Accommodating the rushed time frame


about half the normal time for this kind of

favor from the Woodside Fire Protection
District, which opened a hydrant near the
house to fill the pool in a fraction of the

Feel like planting tomatoes? How to time them just right


By Lee Reich
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Occasional warm, spring-like breezes and longer hours


of sunlight kindle an urge in me to plant tomatoes, starting them indoors, of course.
After all, the sooner the seeds are up and growing, the
sooner Ill sink my teeth into a garden-ripe tomato,
right?
Not necessarily.
Earlier planting leads to better harvests only when
tomato seedlings have consistent, near-perfect growing
conditions. Even with a greenhouse, such conditions are
not easily created. And the earlier tomatoes are planted,
the harder it is to give them what they need.

SLOW AND STEADY


The ideal tomato seedling (also called a transplant or
start) plods along, growing steadily, making a seamless
transition to the outdoors when transplant time finally
comes. Consistently moist soil and regular feeding, both
easily provided, are part of this prescription. Keep tabs
on your watering by periodically poking your finger or an
electronic water meter down into the potting soil, or by
lifting the container to check its weight.
There are a couple of ways to feed your seedlings. One is
to add soluble fertilizer to the water; use a fertilizer formulated for this purpose and follow the instructions,
because too much fertilizer can be as harmful as too little.
Fish emulsion is a good, soluble organic fertilizer.
An even easier way to feed is to mix into the potting
soil some insoluble fertilizer that slowly but steadily
releases nutrients. No need for high-tech, slow release
fertilizers here, although they will do the trick. My potting mix includes one-quarter, by volume, compost, and
this, along with a smidgen of soybean meal, steadily
feeds my potted plants in sync with their needs.
Cottonseed meal, alfalfa meal and feather meal are other
organic, slow-release fertilizers that can be added to a pot-

The time needed to grow a reasonably sized seedling is about six weeks, so count back from that last frost date and hold back
sowing seeds indoors until about then.

Let the sun shine in:


cleaning windows,
window treatments
By Lisa A. Flam
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

If youre like some people (ahem) who put


up window treatments and never give them a
second thought, even as dust accumulates,
this might just be the season to pay them a
little respect.
No need to stress out about adding another task to your spring-cleaning to-do list:
You dont have to clean curtains, shades and
the windows themselves THAT often. And
many times, its not that difficult.
In our experience, the windows and window treatments are something that people
avoid cleaning because theyre not entirely
sure the best way to do it, says Betsy
Goldberg, home director of Real Simple
magazine.
Its not hard, she adds. It just takes a
little bit of time.
If simply removing dirt isnt reason
enough to clean, consider that dust can dull
the fabric of curtains and shades. Household
odors can linger. And washing helps pre-

serve the fabric, especially for window


treatments that get a daily dose of sunshine,
says Tammy Kupernik of retailer Country
Curtains.
If you dont wash them, the sun will
break down the threads, she says.
Washing them keeps the colors bright, it
keeps the threads soft and it does add to the
life of the curtain.

CURTAINS AND DRAPES


Window treatments should be cleaned
once or twice a year, experts say, and the
best method varies by material. Some can
be refreshed in the washer or cleaned with a
vacuum, while others may require a pro.
Start by reading the care tag or directions
that came with the product: Some items are
dry clean only. If the instructions are
unavailable, experts offer general guidelines:
Most curtains that are lined or made of
silk likely require dry cleaning, Kupernik
says.
Curtains that are not lined or insulated

and leaves streaks.
usually can be washed by machine, in a
short, gentle cycle with cool water, she
says. Those made of a poly-cotton blend
can usually go in a medium-heat dryer, but
100 percent cotton curtains should be linedried to prevent shrinkage.
Curtains and roller shades that are insulated with a bonded layer that keeps out the
cold can be machine washed in a short, gentle cycle in cool water and line dried,
Kupernik says. If the insulated sides touch
each other while drying, they can peel off
and ruin the curtain.

Sheer and lace curtains should be washed


by machine in a short, gentle cycle with
cold water and line dried, Kupernik said,
adding that both can be touched up with
light ironing. Once sheers get in the high
heat of a dryer, wrinkles become permanent,
she said.
After curtains come down for cleaning,
dust the rod before hanging them back up.
If you dont want to take them down,
Goldberg offers this method for cleaning
unlined curtains made from lightweight,

Aging gracefully: How midcentury modern classics adapted


By Katherine Roth
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW CANAAN, Conn. In the years


after World War II, when suburban towns
were still the country, this unassuming

village an hour north of Manhattan became


an epicenter of modernist architecture, and a
birthplace of then-radical concepts like
family rooms, floor-to-ceiling windows and
open-plan living.
Since then, the surviving homes have

continued to evolve, a transformation


explored in a new book that looks at 16 of
New Canaans 91 remaining homes from
this influential era.
These homes were meant to be truly modern, to adapt. Preservation is about keeping
the character while allowing these homes to
move on, said architect Cristina A. Ross,
who with architect Jeffrey Matz, photographer Michael Biondo and graphic designer
Lorenzo Ottaviani produced the book,
Midcentury Houses Today (Monacelli
Press, 2014).
In New Canaan, she said, the concentration of homes and the number of surviving
houses to this day is incredibly unique.
Through photos, detailed floor plans and
time lines, and the voices of architects,
builders and occupants, the book traces the
original structures and subsequent additions, devoting a full chapter to each home.
Unlike the modernist architecture of the

Midwest, New Canaans modernist homes


directly reflect the principles of the
Bauhaus school of design in Germany,
established by architect Walter Gropius.
When the Nazi regime closed down the
Bauhaus in the 1930s, Gropius became
chairman of the architecture department at
the Graduate School of Design at Harvard.
He was later joined by Marcel Breuer.
Together, the two passed on their aesthetic
emphasizing volume; large areas of
glass juxtaposed by blank walls; flat roofs;
freedom from architectural ornamentation
to students and associates.
Breuer, Eliot Noyes, Landis Gores, Philip
Johnson and John Johansen, all early
promulgators of modernism in New Canaan,
became known as the Harvard Five. They
moved to New Canaan, near the last stop on
the commuter rail line and near the newly

A few ways gardeners


can go easy on the planet
PLANT AN OAK TREE
Oaks sequester lots of carbon, have enormous root
systems that help manage water and, according to
Tallamy and Darke, are fantastic at supporting wildlife.
There are 557 species of caterpillars in the MidAtlantic states, and theyre all bird food. The birds eat
all the caterpillars to support their young, so you dont
need to worry about defoliation.

FEED THE POLLINATORS

Pollinator-friendly gardens feature a sequence of native flowering plants, so that from April through September somethings
always blooming.

Gardenings new ethos: Help


the planet (and look good too)
By Katherine Roth
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

From the biggest botanical gardens


to the smallest backyard plots and terraces, theres a movement underway to
make gardens work harder for the environment.
Its no longer enough for a garden
to just look pretty. Every garden needs
to do more and every garden matters,
said Douglas Tallamy, a professor in
the department of entomology and
wildlife ecology at the University of
Delaware.
Because of global warming and habitat destruction, he said, today, gardens need to support life, sequester carbon, feed pollinators and manage
water. Its a lot to ask, but it doesnt
have to look messy and it may be the
key to our survival.
For many people who arent sure
what they can do about climate
change, home gardens provide an
opportunity to make a palpable difference.
That sense of purpose is creating a
change in garden aesthetics, with a

more natural look and more emphasis


on drought-tolerant and wildlifefriendly plants.
Its one of the few things an individual can do to mitigate climate
change. The cumulative impact on the
environment is huge, plus its easy,
affordable and fun, said Ann
Savageau, who ripped out most of her
lawn in drought-parched Davis,
California, a year ago and replanted
with desert grasses and other native
plants.
The increase weve seen in pollinators, butterflies and birds at our house
is really exciting, and we reduced our
water usage by two thirds, she said.
Whereas there used to be enough land
for wildlife and humans to exist separately, its become essential that we
share habitats, Tallamy and Rick Darke
argue in their book, The Living
Landscape: Designing for Beauty and
Biodiversity in the Home Garden
(Timber Press, 2014).
Unless we share our space with
nature, the plants on which bees,
caterpillars, butterflies, birds and
other wildlife depend will not sur-

vive, Tallamy said.


Earth-friendly gardens consist mostly of native species, on which local
wildlife depends, experts say.
Gardening for wildlife, especially
birds, is really the hot thing now in
horticulture and gardening. The trend
is toward naturalistic garden design,
with native plants. Its a High Line
kind of a look, said Kristin Schleiter,
associate vice president for outdoor
gardens and senior curator at the New
York Botanical Garden.
The High Line, the New York City
park and garden which runs along a
strip of old elevated track, does symbolize a newer aesthetic in purposeful,
naturalized gardening, said Tom
Smarr, its director of horticulture.
About half the plants are natives and
the other half are self-seeded species,
which require relatively little maintenance and water. Theres way more
forgiveness and durability about it,
he said.
A lot of people have totally been
inspired by the wild look and have
tried it on their own at home, Smarr
said.

Tallamy warns that without pollinators, 80 percent to


90 percent of all plants would be lost, and that gardeners should focus on plants that feed the estimated 4,000
species of native bees. Pollinator-friendly gardens feature a sequence of native flowering plants, so that from
April through September somethings always blooming. Mountain mint, sunflowers, native holly, sweet
pepper bush and goldenrod are all great for pollinators,
Tallamy said. Further west, blazing star and milkweed
are good choices. Schleiter said that early spring can be
especially tough for bees. For early bloomers, she recommends Lyndera, a native bush with great fall color,
and also dogwood.

MINIMIZE LAWN, CONCRETE AND


NON-NATIVE ORNAMENTAL SPECIES
Around 92 percent of our suburban lots are lawn, and
thats the worst you can do, Tallamy said, adding that
concrete seems to be our default landscaping and ornamental Asian plant varieties have little to offer native
wildlife.
In the typical American yard, 80 percent of the
plants are from China. Thats not a functioning ecosystem, he said.
Even apartment dwellers can help, by planting native
species on roofs and terraces.
Schleiter said: Really think about the amount of
chemical thats put on our lawns. If youre not using all
of your lawn, just let the grass grow out and maybe put
in some native perennials. It all adds up.

AVOID PESTICIDES
If youre planting a garden for bees and butterflies,
dont use pesticides that will kill bees and butterflies,
warned Schleiter. It sounds obvious, but people do it
all the time. You have to be extra sure that when you buy
a plant at the nursery, it hasnt been sprayed with any
pesticides. Nurseries do it a lot and you need to be
extremely careful.

They were experimenting, and they were
fast and furiously creating the way they felt
people should be living, said Ross. They
were designing the offices for IBM, for big
corporations, and people became so enamored of the work environment that many
CEOs wanted to bring that streamlining and
flow to their home life.
Although these architects work is wellknown, the ways their structures have been

So much for the easy part of keeping
tomato seedlings that were planted early
growing happily. The plants also need
abundant light and relatively cool temperatures ideally around 65 degrees
Fahrenheit, and this is a combination
not easy to provide on a windowsill or,
without care, in a greenhouse. A sunny
window in a cool room is ideal.
Artificial light is another option. Use
a fluorescent light and keep adjusting its
height so its within inches of the plant.
Many seedlings can bask under a double
fixture of two 4-foot-long fluorescent
bulbs. The light from an incandescent
bulb isnt the right spectrum, and the
heat the bulbs give off if hanging close
above the plant will scorch the leaves.

A LITTLE STRESS IS GOOD

story, and some were expanded in other ways,
while others were restored and updated and
not expanded at all. There are many different
approaches that allow the original house to
continue to shine while moving on, Ross
said.
Both Johnson and Black Lee, when invited
to see changes made to homes they had
designed, said they thought their works had
been improved, the authors say.
In fact, the evolution of homes of this era
seems crucial to their survival. The original
homes tended to be modest by contemporary
standards, with interior areas of around 2,000
square feet. Their designs reflected European
sensibilities and so tended to have small bedrooms and minimal closet space.
To adapt to changing expectations of comfort in affluent New Canaan, many of the
homes were expanded, with larger bedrooms,
en suite bathrooms, media rooms and wine
cellars. Also, higher energy costs meant that
glassed-in areas had to be upgraded and
homes refitted with state-of-the-art mechanical systems.

sounds harsh, but a bit of stress indoors
prepares the plants for buffeting wind,

to some degree, make up for insufficient

Then, a gradual introduction to outdoor
conditions is beneficial. Harden the
plants for a week by setting them outdoors in a spot protected from the full
brunt of wind and sun before planting
them in the garden. Bring them indoors
if frost threatens.
Dont let anxiety over perfect growing conditions keep you from growing

gives you the choice of the tastiest varieties. (I suggest Sungold, Belgian Giant,

WINDOWS

Goldberg suggests vacuuming wood


blinds and wiping each slat with a cloth
dampened with a mix of water and a few
drops of dish soap, wiping off excess moisture with a dry cloth. First, angle the slats
down and wipe each one; then angle them up
and repeat. To clean the cord, pull the shade
all the way up and run the damp cloth up and
down it, followed by the dry cloth. If you
have a wand, follow the same steps with the
cloth.

sheer or semi-sheer fabric: Close the windows and the curtains and spray the curtains
with a wrinkle releaser/odor eliminator
product. Use a handheld fabric steamer,
working from bottom to top in 1-foot sections, holding the steamer nozzle about an
inch from the fabric.
For drapes, which are generally made of
heavier fabrics like brocade, suede or velvet
and are often lined and pleated, vacuum each
panel on a low setting with the brush attachment, holding the vacuum about an inch
away from the fabric, Goldberg says.
Fabric curtains and shades, except silk
ones, can usually be spot cleaned with warm
water and a mild laundry detergent like
Woolite, Kupernik says.

OTHER BLINDS AND SHADES


Clean Roman shades with a vacuum or
roller brush, Kupernik says. Vinyl shades
can be cleaned as needed with a sponge.

WINDOWS
For window panes, if the glass gets dirty
enough, you may want to clean them every
few weeks. Realistically, if people get
around to it every few months, thats fine,
Goldberg says.
Before cleaning, sweep dirt from the
screen and window frame with a brush like
the one that comes with your dustpan, or the
vacuum with the dusting attachment. Spray
glass cleaner or a mix of water and a squirt of
dishwashing soap and wipe with a
microfiber cloth, starting with the outside
and then the inside the panes and moving in
an S motion rather than back and forth to
avoid redepositing dirt.

RINK
Continued from page 1
and, due to the sensitive nature of the
issue, Chief of Planning Ron
Munekawa said the city will strive to
make the developers documents available online by the end of the week.
Hundreds of ice rink supporters have
attended various meetings to urge city
officials not to amend the plans saying theres no substitute for the rink
that was heavily used before the owners chose to cancel its contract with
the former operator in June 2013.
For the past two years, theyve
deprived the community of this benefit
and they shouldnt be able to get off
the hook by simply cutting a check
and walking away from the problem
theyve caused, said Len Rosenduft, a
member of the Save the Bridgepointe
Ice Rink Committee, while referring to
the Planning Commissions input last
year.
Last May, the commission slammed
SPI for closing the facility when it
reviewed its second pre-application to
demolish the rink.
Although the proposal remains similar, this time, SPI is offering a hefty
incentive while arguing its to San
Mateos benefit to support a sales-tax
revenue generating revamp versus a
recreational amenity used by outsiders
from across the Peninsula.
We believe the direct contribution
of $3 million to be used by the city for
any purpose related to San Mateo
parks and recreation and a re-use of the
building as retail is the best possible
solution for the greatest number of

OFFICES
Continued from page 1
numbers as is by city planners, who
requested a continuance of the item to a
future date to make some minor adjustments to the precise plan, Assistant
City Manager Aaron Aknin said
Wednesday.
The adjustments include allowing for
a small percentage of offices to be located in existing buildings and setting
aside some of the remaining 1,112
housing units approved for downtown
for affordable housing, Aknin said.
We are not recommending adjustments to any allocations, Aknin said.
The revised modifications will come
back to the Planning Commission for a
vote in May, he said.
The changes were being considered
because it is expected that developers
will build all the allowable office spaces
approved in the plan by 2015 while
applications for housing and retail are
not nearing the limits approved in the

people. This approach will result in


tremendous benefits for all San Mateo
residents and allow the city to address
the many unmet recreational needs of
its residents, according to a letter
submitted with the application by
Michael Stoner on behalf of SPI.
Bridgepointe Partners also believes
that this conversion of the building to
retail will significantly enhance
Bridgepointes offerings and keep the
center the citys most productive
retail center fresh and vital.
Rosenduft and Dina Artzt, who has
long fought to reopen the rink, said
the rink was a destination that attracted shoppers to San Mateo and heavily
used by a broad range of people from
old to young and hockey players to
those with handicaps.
Deputy Mayor Jack Matthews said
he served on
the Planning
Commission when the master plan was
established and is disappointed SPI
doesnt seem willing to maintain a
rink.
There are a lot of considerations and
I dont know, is $3 million enough?
Matthews said. I would like to see the
needs of the ice skating community
met and I do feel badly that the developer, the property owner, is not
acknowledging that.
Matthews noted SPIs argument that
the ice rink was a regional facility and
added his commitment is to San Mateo
residents.
SPI informally approached the city
last October by suggesting it would
maintain a sheet of ice on site, but
without amenities such as locker
rooms or space for concessionaires.
However, those negotiations proved
fruitless and SPI apparently prefers to

focus on retail while deferring recreation elsewhere.


Our vision for this project aims to
keep the shopping center viable in
todays market while increasing revenues to the city. In the process, we
would be able to better serve the citys
recreational needs through a significant contribution to benefit facilities
and programs citywide. We believe
this to be a win-win for all the parties, Dennis Wong of SPI said in a
press release.
Councilman Rick Bonilla, who was
on the Planning Commission last May
and chastised SPI during the pre-application hearing, said he hadnt yet
formed an opinion on the new proposal.
I think that its necessary to have a
hearing. We need to sit down and hear
all the facts and think and talk about it.
And find out what the reality is from
our legal team and kind of go from
there, Bonilla said.
While city officials were reluctant to
take a firm stance, the ice rink supporters vowed the passing of time hasnt quieted their efforts.
We have tremendous support to
keep this rink for future generations,
Artzt said. We are completely ready to
fight as hard as we need to keep this
rink in our community.

plan, which the City Council adopted in


2011.
Since the plan was adopted, 1,388
housing units have been approved as
well as 199,932 square feet of offices for
downtown. The plan allows for more
than 300,000 square feet of offices to be
built in the future and more than 1,100
homes.
The move to back off on modifying
the limits was seen as a victory by some
residents who are mindful of the fact the
region is in the midst of a housing crisis
and that years of community input
helped craft the precise plans maximum
allowable development standards.
Im very appreciative the City
Council and planning commissioners
have been listening to the public. They
got a lot of letters, Lee Callister said
about individuals who opposed the modifications.
He called the staffs decision to pull
back on the modifications as a victory
for reason, common sense and public
participation, on the Facebook page
Redwood City Residents Say: What?
which has become a sounding board for

residents related to the citys building


boom.
Contrary to the citys party line, residents are not simply resisting
change, Sarah Phoenix wrote the
Daily Journal in an email. Rather, we
are asking the city to slow down and
evaluate the impact of the developments
currently in the pipeline before amending the [Downtown Precise Plan] to
allow further office high-rises.
The councils priorities should be preserving residents quality of life over
short-term developer profits, wrote
Phoenix, who also participates in the
Facebook forum.
Redwood City has become desirable
to build in as eight new development
proposals have been submitted to planners.
They include 229 units of housing in
two projects and 540,000 square feet of
offices in six projects. Some of these
developments fall just outside of the
Downtown Precise Plan area, however.

For more information about the proposal check the city s website later
this week at www.city ofsanmateo.org.
Munek awa said staff will thoroughly
rev iew the proposal before scheduling
a Planning Commission hearing.

As Nigeria celebrates Buharis stunning win, challenges loom


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ABUJA, Nigeria As Nigerians celebrated


the electrifying victory Wednesday that
returned one of its harshest former dictators
to power, sobering challenges confront
Muhammadu Buhari, from an Islamic insurgency that has killed thousands to widespread
poverty and graft.
The 72-year-old Buhari made history as the
first opposition party candidate to win elections in Africas most populous nation, ending President Goodluck Jonathans bid for
another term. For a former general who three
decades ago led Nigeria following a coup, it
was an amazing transformation to a democratically elected president.
Fresh from his victory, Buhari warned the
countrys brutal Boko Haram insurgents that
he would be coming after them.
Boko Haram will soon know the strength
of our will and commitment to rid this nation
of terror, he said Wednesday as he received a
certificate attesting to his victory. We shall
spare no effort until we defeat terrorism.
The bespectacled president-elect also

warned that corruption


would not be tolerated
after he takes office on
May 29.
As Nigerias leader three
decades ago, he returned
looted state assets to government coffers, but his
so-called war against
Muhammadu indiscipline also sent
soldiers into the streets
Buhari
with whips to enforce
traffic laws and imposed humiliating punishment on tardy civil servants. His regime executed drug dealers, jailed journalists critical of
the government and passed laws that allowed
indefinite detention without trial.
Buhari, who insists he has undergone radical change since then and now embraces
democracy, pledged Wednesday to take on the
twin scourges of corruption and an Islamic
uprising he said has challenged Nigeria to
its limits.
Corruption attacks and seeks to destroy
our national institutions and character ... distorts the economy and creates a class of
unjustly enriched people, Buhari said.
