Hillsdale community weighs in on school move

Concern growing over possible continuation school relocation
By Heather Murtagh

Students at Peninsula High School deserve a quality school that offers a quality education but placing it on the Hillsdale High School campus isnt the best way to do that, according to parents and neighbors. During a January study session about Measure O, a $186 million bond measure

passed in November 2010, the board agreed a new facility for the continuation school should be the next priority for the money. Trustees told staff to research all options placing the school on land at Hillsdale or San Mateo high schools, purchasing new land or remodeling on the Crestmoor site in San Bruno where the school is currently located. Since then, Superintendent Scott Laurence has been meeting with local groups explain-

ing the pros and cons of the various options before the board will begin the conversation in the fall. The possibility of moving the facility to San Mateo High School spurred opposition at the school, in the community and by law enforcement ofcials. The Hillsdale Community Action Group has since sprung up to oppose moving Peninsula onto any existing high school campus. It is, however, supportive of the nding a

new home for the school. Our Hillsdale Community Action Group believes these students deserve modernized facilities equal to all others in the district, said Lisa Vande Voorde, a Hillsdale parent who helped form the group. Those in the group have gathered more than 600 online signatures through

Bridgepointe wants to close ice rink,instead provide park amenities

Theres something about a lemonade stand run by little boys and girls that embodies summer. Ice cold, refreshing lemonade the kind many reading this paper probably sold for a quarter or less when holding their own pop-up shop will be on sale this weekend nationwide as youngsters and their parents participate in Alexs Lemonade Stand Foundations ninth annual National Lemonade Days, June 8 through June 10. Over the three days, volunteers will host lemonade stands throughout the country raising a goal of

The old Ice Chalet survived the demolition of Fashion Island in San Mateo many years ago but it will likely be a thing of the past this time next year as the owners of the Bridgepointe Shopping Center have no intention of renewing its lease with the San Mateo Ice Center. Bridgepointe wants to convert the ice rink into multiple retail uses that will generate more revenue for both the

owner of the shopping Inside center, SPI Holdings, and the city of San A possible win-win for Mateo, said Peter San Mateo Meier, the companys See opinion principal of developpage 9 ment and leasing. The trouble is, Bridgepointes master plan with the city dictates it must provide an ice rink or similar recreational uses in the space where the ice rink currently stands, a decision made by the San Mateo City Council way back in 1998.

But SPI just submitted a planning application form with the citys Community Development Department earlier this week asking the city to amend its master plan so that it can provide a recreational amenity offsite. Currently, SPI is proposing to add synthetic turf at playing elds at the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center, in the North Central neighborhood of San Mateo, miles away from the Bridgepointe location.

Thought for the Day

Love hath no physic for a grief too deep.
Robert Nathan,American author and poet (1894-1985)

This Day in History


During the Vietnam War, a South Vietnamese Air Force jet dropped napalm onto the village of Trang Bang.

In A.D. 632, the prophet Muhammad died in Medina. In 1845, Andrew Jackson, seventh president of the United States, died in Nashville, Tenn. In 1861, voters in Tennessee approved an Ordinance of Secession passed the previous month by the state legislature. In 1912, the ballet Daphnis et Chloe, with music by Maurice Ravel, choreography by Michel Fokine and Vaslav Nijinsky and Tamara Karsavina in the title roles, was premiered by the Ballets Russes in Paris. In 1915, Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan resigned in a disagreement with President Woodrow Wilson over U.S. handling of the sinking of the Lusitania. In 1942, Bing Crosby recorded Adeste Fideles and Silent Night in Los Angeles for Decca Records. In 1953, the Supreme Court ruled that restaurants in the District of Columbia could not refuse to serve blacks. In 1962, 20th Century Fox red actress Marilyn Monroe from its production Somethings Got to Give, saying she was unreliable. (Fox later changed its mind, but Monroe died before lming could resume, and the movie was abandoned.) In 1967, 34 U.S. servicemen were killed when Israel attacked the USS Liberty, a Navy intelligence-gathering ship in the Mediterranean. (Israel later said the Liberty had been mistaken for an Egyptian vessel.) In 1978, a jury in Clark County, Nev., ruled the so-called Mormon will, purportedly written by the late billionaire Howard Hughes, was a forgery. In 1982, President Ronald Reagan became the rst American chief executive to address a joint session of the British Parliament. In 1987, Fawn Hall began testifying at the Iran-Contra hearings, describing how, as secretary to National Security aide Oliver L. North, she helped to shred some documents and spirit away others.

Thief steals U.S. flag from man in chicken suit
MANCHESTER, Conn. Manchester, Conn., police are investigating the theft of an American ag from a man in a chicken suit. The Hartford Courant reports that Eric Didio was waving the ag and dancing outside a newly renovated Boston Market restaurant Wednesday as part of his job, when a man jumped from a car, grabbed the ag and took off. A customer who witnessed the theft called police. The newspaper reports that the dispatcher had a hard time relaying the call to ofcers, breaking into laughter while trying to say chicken suit. Nathan Atwood, the restaurants general manager, says he stood beside the 23-year-old Didio for the rest of his shift to provide security. No arrests have been made. being run over Wednesday. Carey-Brown writes that the stuffed animal jumped from her daughters stroller as they exited the train at the Green Street stop in Jamaica Plain, and fell onto the tracks. She says an MBTA worker called the oncoming train, halting it, so he could safely rescue the toy. In her blog, the mother thanks the workers who aided in the rescue effort, saying you really didnt have to do what you did today, but you have made a little 3-year-old incredibly happy.

Oregon woman wins $900K; says date gave her herpes

PORTLAND, Ore. An Oregon jury has awarded $900,000 to a woman who claimed a retired dentist infected her with genital herpes, in a rare case in which a dispute over a sexually transmitted disease went to a jury trial. The 49-year-old woman, who led the suit under a pseudonym, testied last week that she suffered painful outbreaks and spiraled into depression following a sexual encounter with the 69-year-old man she met through the dating website eHarmony. I told the jury hes dangerous, and I believe he is, said Randall Vogt, the attorney for the woman, who declined to be interviewed. High-profile lawsuits accusing celebrities of herpes transmission have been in the news for a quarter-century, but such lawsuits remain relatively rare and typically do not go to trial. The award issued Friday is believed to be the largest of its kind in Oregon. A similar 1996 case ended in a $550,000 settlement. Vogt said the cases are uncommon because they are difcult to prove and typically embarrassing for the claimants. Moreover, it does not make sense to pursue a civil lawsuit unless the defendant has the money to pay a potential judgment.


Word misspelled on high schools diplomas

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. Diplomas at a Maryland high school are being reprinted because they contain a spelling error. All of the diplomas distributed last week in Prince Georges County outside Washington misspelled the word program. County ofcials say they noticed the mistake after commencements were under way. The vendor that printed the nearly 8,000 diplomas, National Quality Products, has apologized to the Class of 2012 for the mistake. Briant Coleman, a spokesman for the schools, says the vendor will reprint the diplomas for free. The corrected diplomas will be mailed to students in a little more than a month.

Similarly, Singh joined the Invisible Children club on the Redwood City campus which made paper beads to sell. The proceeds were donated to school supplies for children in struggling countries. Along the way, Singh remained an active Girl Scout. During her junior year, she took on her Gold Award project called Our Hands. The goal was to create a tutoring program in which teens visit the nearby McKinley Institute of Technology once a week. Its been neat to see that grow, she said. Singh partnered with Sequoias AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), an established program that prepares students in the academic middle for four-year college eligibility. Doing so means those students get volunteer hour and a wonderful activity to include on their resume. Singh recently received an award as a result of her program. In addition to the outside activities, Singh has taken part in the International Baccalaureate program, a two-year internationally recognized educational program for high school students.

A commitment to leadership
By Heather Murtagh

Sarah Singh was drawn to leadership positions early. The 18-year-old from San Carlos got involved with a number of organizations and sports at a young age, and stuck with them. It seemed that once Singh found a t, she committed to it completely. With such a variety of interests, its understandable that Singh struggled with deciding where to go after leaving Sequoia High School. Sarah is a straight A student, IB diploma candidate and two sport athlete who, in her spare time, is an active member of clubs such as Anti-Human Trafficking and Rwanda Schools for Schools, said Principal Bonnie Hansen. However, what I most appreciate about Sarah is her ability to build community. She is inclusive, kind and a leader who looks for the win for everyone. Sarah is a beautiful example of everything we hope for in the leaders of her generation. Singh was an easy-going little girl who enjoyed playing with her siblings, lots of crafts and reading. Her early goal was to be an artist. At 6, Singh began playing soccer. The next year, she gave softball a try as well. Both sports have been a staple for her over the years. Softball became her focus, and she played club ball from fourth through eighth grades then joined the Sequoia varsity team her freshman year. She became the team captain sophomore year and held that title through this year. Singh played AYSO soccer for

Man arrested for allegedly assaulting prostitute
A local real estate agent was arrested early yesterday morning at a South San Francisco hotel after he allegedly bound and gagged a woman he thought stole money from him during a previous sexual encounter, police said. Ofcers responded to the Travelodge at 326 S. Airport Blvd. at about 12:30 a.m. after guests reported to management that a woman was screaming in one of the rooms, South San Francisco police Sgt. Bruce McPhillips said. Ofcers arrived at the hotel to nd a 20-year-old woman who had been assaulted, her arms and legs bound with duct tape and her mouth taped shut, McPhillips said. The victim was cut free and taken to a hospital to be treated for her injuries. David Patrick OMara, 46, of San Francisco, was detained at the hotel and arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment, making terrorist threats and battery causing serious bodily injury, police said. Investigators believe the victim was a prostitute and had met OMara for a sexual encounter at his San Francisco home early Tuesday morning, McPhillips said. Afterward, OMara came to believe that the victim stole money and an iPad while at his home, McPhillips said. Police said OMara allegedly used a false name, contacted the woman through an adult website and arranged to meet her in South San Francisco. Once at the hotel, OMara allegedly attacked the victim and threatened to kill her, police said. OMara remains in custody in San Mateo County Jail on $50,000 bail.


The San Carlos City Council will consider authorizing a two-year lease extension with Arbor Bay School for use of the Kiwanis Building at Burton Park. The city considered only extending the lease one year to transition the building back to the city for park and recreation uses but, during budget preparation, looked at a two-year contract to increase revenue. This option will give the city an extra $91,620 for the other year. The council will also receive a report on a community satisfaction survey of 452 random adults between March 31 and April 8. The survey found 98 percent rated the quality of life in the city as either excellent or good, 89 percent are generally satisfied with the citys efforts to provide municipal services, high scores were given for park quality, safety, accessibility and appearance and 84 percent said they are satisfied with the citys communication with residents. The City Council meets 7 p.m. Monday, June 11 at City Hall, 600 Elm St., San Carlos. The Redwood City Council will hold a budget study session, the first of two, before adoption at the June 25 meeting. The City Council meets 7 p.m. Monday, June 25 at City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road, Redwood City.

DUI crash causes outage, gas leak
PG&E crews have repaired a gas line that was ruptured Wednesday night when an alleged drunken driver crashed into a utility pole in Millbrae, knocking out power to about 1,000 customers. The incident occurred at about 8:40 p.m. when a car hit a utility pole in the 300 block of Millwood Drive, PG&E spokeswoman Jana Morris said. The car was driven by 40-year-old Jason Plattner, who was arrested on suspicion of DUI, San Mateo County sheriffs Lt. Ed Barbarini said. The crash caused a power line to come down and hit a chain-link fence, and the resulting electrical discharge started a grass re. The accident cut power to about 1,000 customers and caused a small hole in a gas line. Crews discovered the leak at about 3:15 a.m. and made the necessary repairs later in the day, spokeswoman Tamar Sarkissian said. Power has been restored to all affected customers, Morris said.

The thieves apparently crawled under the vehicles and used battery-powered saws to cut the converters free, according to the Sheriffs Ofce. Investigators recommend that anyone who owns one of the target vehicles avoid parking in the same place for a prolonged period of time. Catalytic converters can be engraved with a vehicle license number to make them traceable, and they can also be secured to the vehicle frame by welding metal pieces to the frame.

Food trucks out,farmersmarket in

By Bill Silverfarb

Last year, Off the Grid held a gourmet food truck event Monday nights in downtown San Mateo that was generally viewed as a hit by city ofcials. The Downtown San Mateo Association invited Off the Grid back this summer for a second year but the city decided it wanted to seek at least 10 more proposals from other vendors which made Off the Grid decide it was done with San Mateo, at least for now. The city did not get 10 proposals, instead it only got two and one of them, Moveable Feast, withdrew itself from consideration yesterday, Moveable Feasts Ryan Sebastian told the Daily Journal. The only proposal left the city had to consider was from Urban Table, which conducts a farmers market at the Wells Fargo Bank parking lot in San Mateo Sunday mornings. Yesterday, the DSMA awarded the Monday night event to Urban Table, which will bring a hybrid farmers mar-

Coast Farmers Market Association on the Wednesday night events, Sebastian said. We are really excited about it, he said. Urban Tables Monday night event will be similar to Moveable Feasts Wednesday night event, but the DSMAs Evans thinks there is room enough for both to operate in San Mateo. Moveable Feast conducts events mostly in Santa Clara County while Off the Grid has several events a week in San Francisco where multiple food truck vendors assemble including Chairman Mao, Naked Chorizo, Cheese Gone Wild, Curry Up Now, Mamas Empanadas and Whisk on Wheels.

Democrats, governor in talks to bridge $2B divide


Former hospital worker takes deal for taking mail


The former Mills-Peninsula Health Services mailroom employee accused of bringing home 1,500 patient records and separately stealing from her elderly father took a plea deal yesterday to avoid trial on charges of embezzlement, elder abuse and forgery. Katherine Asimos, 49, was charged with ve counts of forgery and one count of embezzlement. She was also charged with elder scal abuse for allegedly writing checks on her fathers account in a

different case. As part of the negotiated settlement, Asimos pleaded no contest to one misdemeanor count of embezzlement of property and received two years court probation. She was also ned $200 and ordered to not possess the identication or property of others. Prosecutors also dismissed the case involving her father. Asimos reportedly took the pieces of mail between November 2009 and September 2010 while working for the Burlingame-based hospital. The majority were medical reports or X-rays and registration information destined for

delivery to physician ofces. Most had patient names and diagnostic test results but 15 also included addresses and Social Security numbers. Hospital ofcials said they learned of the breach June 17, 2011 when Asimos brother discovered the documents while helping her move and returned them to the hospital. Asimos was terminated and the District Attorneys Ofce contacted. Asimos reportedly told authorities she was overwhelmed with sorting the documents at work and brought them home with plans to shred them later.

SACRAMENTO Democratic leaders are meeting privately with Gov. Jerry Brown to try to avoid about $2 billion in proposed welfare cuts as next weeks budget deadline approaches. Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg said Thursday that he and Assembly Speaker John Perez are seeking middle ground with the Democratic governor on how to close the states $15.7 billion decit. The Legislature faces a June 15 deadline for passing a balanced budget. Steinberg says Democrats are largely in agreement with the governor. But Brown has proposed about $2 billion in cuts to the states welfare-to-work program known as CalWORKS; child care assistance for low-income families; in-home supportive services; and Cal Grants, which provides college nancial aid. Democrats would rather not make those cuts because they would hurt the most vulnerable.

6 Friday June 8, 2012 Republicans clash with AG on Fast and Furious



Rental car tax still clinging to life

By Michelle Durand

By Pete Yost

WASHINGTON Attorney General Eric Holder clashed Thursday with congressional Republicans seeking more information about a awed gun-trafficking investigation in Arizona. Lawmakers at a House Judiciary Committee hearing asked Holder what he knew in advance of public disclosure of a so-called Eric Holder gun-walking tactic in early 2011. As part of Operation Fast and Furious, agents were told to forego immediate arrests of suspected straw purchasers of guns and instead try to track the guns to higher-ups in gun-smuggling rings. Such a tactic is normally barred under Justice Department policy. Agents lost track of hundreds of guns which owed south to Mexico, where many were recovered at crime scenes. Two such guns were found in the U.S. at the scene of the killing of border agent Brian Terry. Holder told the committee he became aware of the gun-walking tactic at the same time as the public and that he found out about the same time that guns found at the scene of Terrys death were part of Operation Fast and Furious. Holder has faced off repeatedly with Issa and other Republicans in recent months over his handling of the aborted rearms investigation. Issas committee has prepared a contempt citation against Holder but not voted on it yet, applying pressure for more documents on Operation Fast and Furious. Holder said the Justice Department has cooperated fully with congressional investigators and turned over 7,600 pages of material to Congress about the operation.

The countys car rental tax is still clinging to life after yesterdays updated election numbers were released but the additional votes did little to change the days outcome beside pushing turnout numbers upward. Measure T, which finished out election night with less than 100 votes separating passage from failure, widened its lead to 311 votes as of Thursdays update. The measure, which adds a 2.5 percent tax on rental cars in the unincorporated area, needs a simple majority to pass and support now stands at 50.16 percent. However, there are still about 13,000 outstanding votes to count, said David Tom, deputy assessor-county clerk-recorder. Until then, Tom said the outcome can always change. You never know until you nish counting,

he said. The countys two other tax measures, additions on commercial parking and hotel occupancy, continue to fail although support has slightly increased for both. Measure U, the call for an 8 percent tax on parking in the unincorporated areas, is losing 46.77 percent to 53.23 percent while hotel Measure X is failing 47 percent to 53 percent. Proponents of the three taxes said they are necessary to funnel $13 million annually into the general fund to stave off deeper cuts to health and public safety. Opponents heavily funded by Hertz and Enterprise rental car companies argued the taxes would dissuade tourism and hurt business. The county tried passing parking and car rental taxes in 2008 but both failed. Both Jefferson Union High Schools measure Y and Redwood City School Districts Measure W maintained more than the twothirds majority needed for passage.

The extra days since the June 5 primary also aided the countys voter turnout, moving it from 27.72 percent at the close of Tuesday to 31.57 percent yesterday. San Mateo County had 337,702 registered voters in Tuesdays election but only 106,625 cast ballots and nearly three-quarters were by mail, according to the Thursday numbers. Tom is surprised by the low turnout because the normal presidential primary usually draws about 56 percent. He anticipated more voter challenges and concerns because of redistricting and the new top-two primary but said Election Day was very smooth. The next vote updates are 4:30 p.m. on Monday, June 11 and Wednesday, June 13.

Craving cheese? Burlingame may have the cure


Got a hankering for grilled cheese? So does most of the editorial staff at the Daily Journal. Burlingame may soon draw grilled cheese lovers as the Planning Commission will consider an application to open The Melt at 1401 Burlingame Ave. On Monday, the commission will study the applications which calls for opening the restaurant in the spot currently occupied by Burger Joint, according to a staff report. As proposed, The Melt would offer breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as serve beer and wine, after getting its alcohol license. It would be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week and require one full-time employee and three part-time to start. The

restaurant plans to offer 262 square feet of seating. There is also a hope to offer seating along Primrose Road, according to a May 11 letter to the city by James Ryan, vice president of operation for The Melt. The Melt, known for its grilled cheese sandwiches, also serves soup, dessert, egg sandwiches, French toast, waffles, yogurt, fruit and coffee, Ryan wrote. Currently the restaurant has four locations three in San Francisco and one in Palo Alto. At the same meeting, the commission will consider the fifth application for a restaurant under this 2010 decision. Previously, Pizza My Heart, located at 235 Primrose Road, was approved as the fifth new food establishment. However, as Pizza My Heart is within the Safeway development, it is no longer part of the Burlingame

Avenue Commercial District which opened up a spot for a new establishment, according to a staff report by Senior Planner Ruben Hurin. As a result, the commission will consider plans to open a retail loose leaf tea shop at 1400-1402 Burlingame Ave. and 303 Primrose Road. Currently, all three spaces are vacant but were most recently occupied by the Burlingame Smoke Shop at 1400 Burlingame Ave., Georgiou Studio at 1402 Burlingame Ave. and Domez at 303 Primrose Road. Plans include combining these three space to create a 1,386-squarefoot space. The commission meets 7 p.m. Monday, June 9 at City Hall, 501 Primrose Road, Burlingame.

Frustrated liberals want more from Obama

By Steve Peoples

PROVIDENCE, R.I. They are trying to be hopeful, but the Democratic Partys most passionate voters are struggling to hide their frustration with President Barack Obama. Republicans attack the president as a big-government liberal. Many liberals meeting Thursday at Netroots Nation it describes the annual convention as a giant family reunion for the left argue instead that Obama hasnt fought hard enough for progressive priorities on taxes, health care and the economy. Even more problematic for the president: With the election just ve months away, some are threatening not to donate money or time or even vote in November for the man who overwhelmingly ignited their passions and captured their imaginations four years ago. I want to be happy with him, said Democrat Kristine Vaughan, a 45year-old school psychologist from Canton, Ohio. But I am nding that he has succumbed to the corporate inuence as much as everyone else. I think he has so much potential to break out of that, but overall he has been a disappointment. Vaughan isnt sure whether shell

vote for Obama a second time and probably wont donate money as she did during his rst campaign. She refuses to support Republican challenger Mitt Romney, but is considering writing in another candidate in protest. The sentiment is not unique among the 2,700 people gathered on the rst day of this three-day convention. More than a dozen liberals interviewed here indicated some level of frustration with the president, despite widespread praise for his recent decision to support gay marriage and ongoing push to scale back military action in the Middle East. Most plan on voting for Obama and their gripes are not unlike what the White House has heard for much of the presidents term. But these left-leaning backers varying levels of enthusiasm could spell trouble for a president whose 2008 victory was fueled by a massive network of grass-roots volunteers and small-dollar donors. Polls show the president locked in a tight race thats likely to be decided in several swing states where he scored narrow victories four years ago. Places like Ohio, Florida and Virginia are expected to be especially competitive, and Obama will need liberal supporters to both work on his behalf and turn out in droves on Election Day.

Romney and GOP raise more than president and Dems


WASHINGTON Mitt Romney outraised President Barack Obama in May, the rst time the Republican presidential challenger has jumped ahead of Obama and his prodigious fundraising apparatus. The numbers illustrate how Romney and the Republican Party have jelled as a force after a protracted GOP primary. Romney and his party raised more than $76 million last month, the campaign said Thursday. Obamas cam-

paign reported that it and the Democratic Party raised $60 million for the month. O b a m a , forced onto the defensive by lackluster Mitt Romney e m p l o y m e n t numbers, also launched a new television ad Thursday in nine key election-year

states targeting Congress and blaming lawmakers for not acting on his jobs proposals. The approach represents an expanded ad focus for Obama, who had been going after Romney. The fundraising numbers and Obamas new ad signal a new stage in the campaign as a resurgent Romney capitalizes on his emergence as the GOPs standard-bearer and as Obama is forced to confront the political implications of a weak economic recovery.

a charging decision in the case which is complicated by the fact the vehicle carrying Gaines and several others was in an accident just prior to Leffew s car striking it just after 1 a.m. Dennis Leffew Nov. 6. Gaines, a student and basketball player at Gavilan College in Gilroy, was a passenger in a Cadillac traveling south on Highway 101 north of Millbrae Avenue. The group of four was heading home from a night in San Francisco when the driver lost control after swerving to avoid a tire in the road, collided with the center divider and stopped in the middle lane. Minutes later, prosecutors say Leffew crashed his Nissan 300ZX into the car, pushing it down the highway for a distance. Three other passengers inside the Cadillac were injured. Gaines suffered a traumatic head injury and remained on life support until Nov. 18 when he was removed. Leffew suffered a head injury, severe facial cuts and broken bones, according to his defense attorney Steven Clark. While in the hospital, a blood sample placed his blood alcohol level at .12 percent, according to the District Attorneys Ofce. Although the bulk of the renovation money came from private donations to campus foundations, faculty and students say the kitchen and bathroom makeovers are rubbing salt in the wound caused by the loss of $750 million in state funding in recent years and potentially another $250 million cut next year.

Suicides are surging among U.S. troops

By Robert Burns

WASHINGTON Suicides are surging among Americas troops, averaging nearly one a day this year the fastest pace in the nations decade of war. The 154 suicides for active-duty troops in the first 155 days of the year far outdistance the U.S. forces killed in action in Afghanistan about 50 percent more according to Pentagon statistics obtained by the Associated Press. The numbers reflect a military burdened with wartime demands from Iraq and Afghanistan that have taken a greater toll than foreseen a decade ago. The military also is struggling with increased sexual assaults, alcohol abuse, domestic violence and other misbehavior. Because suicides had leveled off in 2010 and 2011, this years upswing has caught some officials by surprise. The reasons for the increase are not fully understood. Among explanations, studies have pointed to combat exposure, post-traumatic stress, misuse of prescription medications and personal financial problems. Army data suggest soldiers with multiple combat tours are at greater risk of committing suicide, although a substantial proportion of Army suicides are committed by soldiers who never deployed. The unpopular war in Afghanistan is winding down with the last combat troops scheduled to leave at the end of 2014. But this year has seen record numbers of soldiers being killed by Afghan troops, and there also have been several scandals involving U.S. troop misconduct. The 2012 active-duty suicide total of 154 through June 3 compares to 130 in the same period last year, an 18 percent increase. And its more than the 136.2 suicides that the Pentagon had projected for this period based on the trend from 2001-2011. This years January-May total is up 25 percent from two years ago, and it is 16 percent ahead of the pace for 2009, which ended with the highest yearly total thus far. Suicide totals have exceeded U.S. combat deaths in Afghanistan in earlier periods, including for the full years 2008 and 2009.

A possible win-win for the city

hen was the last time one of you or someone you know went to the ice rink at Bridgepointe Shopping Center? How many times have you thought about it? If you are like most San Mateo residents, you have probably thought about it a few times, but have never gone. The ice rink was once the centerpiece of the Fashion Island Shopping Center back when it looked more like a tent village than the big-box retail destination it is today. When the property owners sought to redevelop it years ago, city ofcials pressed to keep the ice rink there as a recreational use. At the time, it made sense since many enjoyed having such recreational choices so close. In recent years, however, the rink has lost its synergy with the rest of the shopping center and the property owners are considering a way to better utilize the space and generate more revenue for themselves and the city. The development agreement requires that there be an ice rink or some other recreational amenity on site. The ice rink lease is expiring in April and the property owners have made it clear they do not wish to renew it. Instead, they offer two alternatives. One would keep a recreational use on site in

the form of something like an indoor climbing facility that users would pay to enjoy. The other would be asking the city to amend the master plan so the property owner can pay for a recreational amenity elsewhere in the city. One idea is the installation of an articial grass eld somewhere in the city, with one possible location being the King Center in North Central San Mateo, and the construction of rest rooms at Mariners Island Park, where none exist today. The installation and maintenance of the all-weather eld would be paid for by the Bridgepointe Shopping Centers owner, SPI Holdings, LLC, and its replacement would also be paid for. Such elds usually have a life of eight to 12 years so the city could see a eld maintained for up to 24 years. So why would the property owner make such a proposal? Its aim is to draw a retailer which could generate approximately $28.2 million in revenue, which would also mean approximately $282,000 in sales tax revenue for the city. The rink is a community resource, but its use has become more regional with leagues from all around the Bay Area

coming to it for hockey. Times have changed and the rink is no longer a centerpiece, and has become more of an afterthought. Front and center now is the citys dened need for elds. Grass elds are often taken out of commission in inclement weather for them to regenerate. An articial turf eld would extend the use of such a eld, and the King Center is a worthy recipient since it is itself the centerpiece of the neighborhood. Any new eld would also alleviate the pressure on other elds in other areas as more can use it. The proposal has a possibility of being a win-win for the city and the shopping center. An application has been submitted and there should be a community discussion on its merits. No amount of public discussion can keep the ice rink, as the property owner has made it clear the on-site recreational amenity will be another use, which complies with the master plan. So the discussion is not necessarily about keeping the rink there, it is more centered on what type of recreational use the city is interested in and what would be the best option for San Mateo residents. And for those of you still thinking of using the rink, you have at least until April to lace up your skates.

Letters to the editor

Burlingame leaf blower ordinance a reasoned approach
Editor, What was most disturbing about Barbara Nagatas letter in the June 6 edition of the Daily Journal criticizing Burlingames leaf blower ordinance is that, already, she is misquoting and mistaken about the provisions of the plan. Burlingame is one city among many regulating leaf blowers due to serious health hazards. As an active participant, there was nothing trivial or over-regulatory in the councils approach: they were thoughtful, inclusive, reviewed medical data and worked with gardeners to create a workable compromise. The council was, in fact, incredibly thorough and fair, and we should be proud. The ordinance allows for three days a week (not one, as mistakenly stated by Nagata): one day for commercial blowing and two on weekends for residents. Bay Area Gardeners Association helped broker the compromise, aware cities are banning blowers. Heres a startling fact: tiny particulates of mercury, diesel, gasoline, animal feces and more are power-blown into the air at a rate double the busiest freeways in Los Angeles. These cause respiratory disease by acting like a gas that lines the lungs and is quickly drawn up into the blood stream. Anyone who exercises near blowers workers, bicyclists, runners will ingest the particulates four times faster than a person at rest (Dr. Tim Tyner, Blower use is not occasional. It is constant and contributes to proven increases in blood pressure, heart disease, hearing loss and asthma. We should be using emissions and blower-free options. Our gardeners will save thousands in fuel costs, our families will be free from allergies, respiratory disease and noise pollution stress and our workers will stay healthy and well. The Burlingame City Council has seen the writing on the wall and has done the right thing. Now its our job to support them. While I agree that high school students should be given top priority in the programs, there is still a major need for adult retraining. In the past, students from San Mateo County who were enrolled in these vocational classes were strongly represented by adults who train alongside teens. The advantage of having a mixed enrollment will likely offer more maturity in the classroom, and learning a trade gives a person an opportunity to earn and save money, should they decide to go to college. Some of these classes offer transfer credits to our community colleges. There seems to be an attitude in the county that our community colleges are competing with ROP programs. Some students are not ready for community college or need to be trained quickly to ll a need in the workforce. I recommend increases in adult enrollment, but ensure that high school students get rst priority and increase the number of interns in the business community, with paid teacher oversight and outreach. Teachers should be paid to oversee their internship program. Class work should not have lengthy lectures but applied practice required, such as that found in a computerized accounting course where lectures represent theory; computer practice gives applied understanding in the presence of the teacher.

Increase adult enrollment in ROP

Editor, The San Mateo County Ofce of Educations Regional Occupational Program is one of the best programs to prepare people for future vocations or exploring a broad range of occupations and training for careers, as indicated in the letter Kill off adult education? in the June 7 edition of the Daily Journal. In a time of high unemployment of teens and adults, this should be expanded and more internships should be offered toward the end of the students training. Unfortunately, the state government has scaled back the program so its primary emphasis is on high school students, substantially reducing adult enrollment.

oys, our new myths tell us, are inherently flawed creatures. Michael Gurian, Ph.D., The Wonder of Boys. This is a second installment of a column, Lost Boys, that was in the Daily Journal Feb. 24. Since then, I have talked to some people connected with the juvenile services division of the Probation Department and am even more convinced that far too many boys are getting short shrift. Yes, there are boys who seem to have it all together and make it through school and on through adulthood relatively intact and unscathed psychologically or physically. But there are many men who arent really sure how they fit into the scheme of things in todays culture and there are many more who struggle and fall by the wayside because no one appreciated their needs and helped them find their productive purpose in our schizophrenic society. And now even their physical maleness is threatened, as Ill describe later. Kathleen Parker, syndicated columnist and author of the book, Save the Males, must have been thinking about this when she lamented in one of her columns that President Obama appointed a White House Council on Women and Girls but did not do the same for men and boys. And yet, as she wrote, boys in this country are in far graver danger than girls in nearly every measurable way. ... Boys wont be equal to girls if we dont focus our resources on their needs and stop advancing the notion that girls are a special class deserving special treatment. We must face the fact that, in general, young boys are not as mature as young girls, do not develop speech as early, are not as ready to sit still, pay attention and tackle academics in school. As Michael Gurian wrote in The Minds of Boys, many are not cut out for the education establishments idea of the school experience. Boys suffer more from lack of bonding and family dysfunction. Boys are much more likely to drop out of school, abuse drugs, commit suicide and get involved in criminal activity. Boys are susceptible to absorbing messages from the media notably that men are one or more of the following: idiots, violence obsessed, crude, ignorant, clueless, narcissistic, sex fiends, mindless and shallow. The football coach who pays his players to inflict concussions on the opposing team, gangmembers who gun down their adversaries, or men who abuse their wives and kids, all stem from boys whose purpose was distorted by seriously inadequate caretakers and an exploitative culture. As Gurian wrote in his new book, The Purpose of Boys: Whether isolated or becoming physically dangerous, even the most hardened young man began his adolescence as a young boy who yearned, because of his own internal nature, for his family, community and society to provide him with safe risks, important challenges and deeply felt rites of passage to purposeful manhood. We must appreciate boys for their own unique characteristics as we help them grow into well-functioning men by providing good role models at home, in the community and in the media. Boys who are not academically inclined should not be allowed to fall by the wayside. They must be provided education related to their interests and abilities like vocational schools. We must face up to the fact that in many ways our culture demeans and exploits boys. Boys must feel appreciated, must have someone to help them develop a positive purpose so that they can grow up to become well-functioning people, productive citizens and successful parents. As Miriam Meizdian wrote in Boys Will Be Boys: We desperately need new heroes for our boys heroes whose sense of adventure, courage and strength, are linked with caring, empathy and altruism. Seems we havent been paying enough attention to the plight of boys in more ways than one. Those of us who have seen how males qualities have so often been denigrated and demeaned by our culture which has been heeding the pleas for female equality but in many ways failing to take seriously the cries (some obvious, some not) for respect and appreciation that emanate from boys, might realize the seriousness of the situation when they are reminded of an article that appeared in the Daily Journal on Aug. 7, 2010. A fascinating yet shocking development has been transpiring over the past few decades: The world is slowly started to lose its boys through declining male births. This recent phenomena has a lot to do with the steady infiltration of hormone-disrupting chemicals in our daily lives chemicals such as bisphenol-A and phthalates. Not only are we seeing fewer boys being born around the world but were also seeing an increase in physical feminization of boys whose mothers were exposed to high levels of these chemicals.

Wall Street
Research. Bernanke told a joint economic committee in Congress that the Fed was ready to act if the economy needs it, but he did not spell out any additional steps on the way. The Fed chairman said the central bank was prepared to take action as needed to protect the U.S. financial system and economy in the event that financial stresses escalate. Weaker hiring in May and comments by a Fed regional president had led some investors to hope that the Fed might try something new. The stock market enjoyed its biggest rally of the year on Wednesday. On Thursday, the early rally in stocks came after China cut its benchmark lending rate for the first time in nearly four years, adding to efforts to reverse a sharp slowdown in economic growth there. China is the worlds economic locomotive at the moment, and it cant afford to slow down at a time when other major economies are in precarious positions, said Matthew Kaufler, portfolio manager at mutual fund group Federated Investors.

NEW YORK Investors didnt hear what they wanted from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. An early rally in stocks faded in the afternoon Thursday after Bernanke signaled no immediate further steps from the Fed to stoke economic growth in the United States, which has shown signs of faltering. A report that Americans cut back sharply on their credit card purchases in April, suggesting consumers were losing confidence in the economy, also took some steam out of the market. Bank stocks also lost ground late in the day after the Fed said it wants U.S. banks to set aside more money to cushion against unexpected losses, a key step in preventing another financial crisis. The Dow Jones industrial average had been up as much as 140 points but closed up 46.17 points, or 0.3 percent, at 12,460.96. The market is addicted to easy money, and Bernanke has the job of not pulling the trigger unless the situation needs stabilizing, said Doug Roberts, chief investment strategist at the investment company Channel Capital

Samsung fights Apple move to block Galaxy sales

By Youkyung Lee

SEOUL, South Korea Samsung Electronics Co. said Thursday that it will ght Apples move to stop U.S. sales of its new Galaxy phone in the latest areup of an intellectual property battle between the worlds top smartphone makers. Samsung said it will vigorously oppose Apples request for a court to ban sales of the Galaxy S III smartphone and still plans to go ahead with the devices scheduled release in the U.S. on June 21. The South Korean company said in a

statement that it will demonstrate to the court that the Galaxy S III is innovative and distinctive. On Tuesday, Apple Inc. asked a U.S. district court to temporarily ban sales of the S III smartphone before its launch in the United States. The maker of the iPhone accused Samsung of infringing two Apple patents. The request, if accepted by the U.S. District Court for Northern California, would deal a blow to Samsungs attempt to get a headstart on sales of Apples next iPhone. The S III smartphone went on sale in Europe on May 29 and will be

offered by around 300 mobile carriers in Asia and North America later this month. The early launch puts Samsung in a favorable position to take a bigger chunk of the lucrative smartphone market. While Apple is keeping mum on its annual iPhone upgrade, many analysts expect the new iPhone to go on sale as early as July. Samsung has become the biggest threat to Apples clout in the mobile market as its Galaxy series of smartphones won popularity among consumers seeking an Android-powered device.

Location app Foursquare to focus on exploration
NEW YORK Foursquare is best known for letting smartphone users tell others about the restaurants and other places they are at, but people are increasingly using it to nd nearby places to go to. Now, the mobile app is getting a makeover that turns the focus to this sort of exploration. In an update Thursday, Foursquare is revamping its app so users can nd nearby spots without having to search for them. The app will recommend bars, restaurants or shops based on what places you frequent or what your friends like. Recommendations will change based on where you are, so you could get different suggestions while traveling to new places, for example. Other new features include letting people like check-ins, venues or comments. And photos will be larger and more prominently displayed.

NEW YORK Virgin Mobile USA, one of Sprints brands for prepaid, no-contract phone service, said Thursday it will start selling the iPhone on June 29, charging $549 for a basic model. The high price of the phone comes with an upside: service will start at $30 per month. That means the phone, plus two years of service, will cost $1,269, excluding taxes. Thats nearly $800 less than a subscriber would pay for the same phone, an iPhone 4 with 8 gigabytes of memory, if buying it under the Sprint Nextel Corp. brand.

Shockers roll past SF

By Nathan Mollat

Hard work pays off for Micek

By Julio Lara

Just off his freshman season at the University of Nevada, Barry Timko made a cameo appearance for the San Mateo American Legion Post 82 Shockers Thursday afternoon against San Francisco Legion at College of San Mateo. While Timko is ofcially on the 19-andunder Shockers roster, Thursday may have been his only appearance in the black-andgold as hes scheduled to head to Washington Tuesday to play in the collegiate West Coast League. If Thursday was his only appearance in a Shockers uniform this summer, he left a memorable impression. The lefty pitched ve innings of no-hit ball, striking out nine as the Shockers buried San Francisco 11-1 this on the heels of a nail-biting 2-1 win over the same San Francisco squad Wednesday. I was a little rusty. I hadnt thrown in a while, said Timko, who pitched about 25 innings for the Wolf Pack this season, with his last appearance coming in mid-May. I wanted to work on some things. Michael Sweeney came on in relief of Timko in the sixth and was three outs away from a combined no-hitter, but a Bobby Arenas single in the seventh broke it up. San Francisco went on to scratch out a run to spoil the shutout as well. The San Mateo offense made sure Timko was allowed to work on his stuff as the Shockers scored the maximum out of the minimum 11 runs on 11 hits. They scored runs in six of the seven innings and crushed three triples and two doubles. Seven different Shockers drove in a run and eight of the nine starters had at least one hit. We have a lot of weapons, said San Mateo manager Dave Fuata. We have a lot of young, good kids. San Mateo (5-0) jumped out to a quick 2-0

San Mateo second baseman Mickey McDonald, left, res to rst to complete one of three double plays on the day during the Shockers11-1 win over San Francisco Legion.

There are victorious outcomes on the basketball court as indicated by the scoreboard when the clock reaches triple zero. And then there are the ghts that dont know anything about time just commitment and perseverance. Former Sacred Heart Prep basketball standout Gabby Micek knows this all too well. In her senior season in 2009 with the Gators, the guard scored almost 13 points per game and made the West Bay Athletic League All-Conference First Team after finishing third in the league in scoring and second in 3point eld goals made. After, Micek took a risk and headed to the Midwest and Loyola University in Chicago, accepting a walk-on invitation. Coming here, I was a little nervous just being the only one as a walkon, Micek said. But its definitely exceeded my expectations. I knew that college athletics were Gabby Micek hard, but I didnt really know how hard. So, Ive grown as a person just being able to work hard every day. The difculties from harsher winters and some homesickness only grew as Micek battled her way through three seasons of only 115 minutes of basketball. It was denitely difcult, Micek said. Going from scoring all the time at Sacred Heart to hardly playing here, it was denitely a humbling experience learning my role on the team. I just have great support from my coaches and my teammates. Its a whole different game. But Im glad I stuck with it.

Rajon Rondo had 21 points and 10 assists for Boston. Kevin Garnett and LeBron James Brandon Bass each scored 12 points, but Paul Pierce had only nine on 4-of-18 shooting. In the site of some of James biggest disappointments, the only disappointed ones Thursday

BOSTON LeBron James refused to let another season end in Boston. The Eastern Conference nals, and his chase of an NBA championship, are headed back to Miami for a Game 7. James had 45 points and 15 rebounds, overwhelming the Celtics and leading the Heat to a 9879 victory Thursday night that forced the decisive game. Pushing away elimination right along with every defender who tried to stop him, James shot 19 of 26 from the eld and nished four points shy of his playoff career-high while playing 45 min-

were the thousands of fans who hoped to see a celebration but instead led out of the TD Garden midway through the fourth quarter, just before the league MVP called it a night. Miami barely won Game 2 before dropping the next three games, but this one was never in doubt. James was a one-man force on whats supposed to be a Big Three, carrying the Heat in the rst half while Wade made only 1 of 6 shots. The Celtics were hoping to complete a comeback from a 2-0 decit, as Oklahoma City did, and advance to face the Thunder in the NBA nals. But they missed 13 of 14 3-point attempts and will have to win a second straight game in Miami to play for the title.

What to look for at Euro 2012


WARSAW, Poland The World Cup may be the best-known soccer tournament on the planet. It may not be the best. To many fans, the European Championship ranks as the top competition. This years continental championship, generally called Euro 2012, kicks off Friday in Warsaw when co-host Poland plays Greece at the National Stadium. Ukraine also will be hosting games. With only 16 teams instead of 32, many believe the caliber of play at the European Championship

exceeds that of the World Cup, which gets diluted by some of the slots apportioned to areas of the globe without strong soccer traditions. If that sounds arrogant, consider that only one non-European country (Uruguay) has been among the seminalists at the last two World Cups. Both tournaments take place every four years, but in alternate even-numbered years. That puts the European Championship, which started in 1960 but became a full-edged tournament in 1980 when eight teams competed, in the same summer as the Olympics.

For Euro 2012, defending champion Spain which also won the 2010 World Cup is the favorite, especially with Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta controlling play. But the Netherlands and Germany are also contenders with their own game-changing players, notably the Dutch trio of Arjen Robben, Robin van Persie and Wesley Sneijder. Others, like England with Wayne Rooney and Portugal with Cristiano Ronaldo, will also be in the mix.

Sometimes, you just have to take that leap and go. San Mateos Erin Hawk will be the rst to tell you that come Sunday at her rst ever Escape from Alcatraz triathlon, the goal isnt about what the clock reads when she reaches the nish line. The goal is the nish line. So as 2,000-plus athletes approach the start line in the San Francisco Bay and she adjusts her goggles, checks her swim cap and focuses on nding her rhythm, the 37-year old mother and wife is just going to leap in and go just like she always has. I figured, why not? Hawk said. Its excitement. Theres always the not-knowing. Ive mentally prepared myself for how hard it is. But obviously until you do the whole race, I mean, each race is challenging, right? The not-knowing, you kind of set some personal goals on surviving, strategy. Its excitement, a little bit of anxiety, but Im not freaking out or anything. Hawk is hoping the third crack at the Escape will be the charm, actually. The San Mateo resident found the sport in 2007 after a friend of hers suggested she take it to compliment her swimming background.

Evans noted that the Giants did not have any additional picks this year, compared to other teams that invested in high-school talent with their picks some quite heavily. And, with the new slotting system in place that constricts teams from overspending, its more difcult for teams to buy out college scholarship offers that prep players may have on the table. We dont want to roll dice on players signing, Evans said. We want to know theyre going to come forward and get their careers started, and sometimes with the high-school players, if youre not able to offer the money that theyre expecting, then you risk them starting their college career. Then you dont have them. So, we measured it as such that we had some reasonable expectation that they would sign before we took them. Drafting college pitchers had historically been a losing proposition for the Giants. Before striking pay dirt by drafting Lincecum, San Francisco had failed to ever produce a long-term staple to the big-league pitching staff. Previous to Lincecum, the Giants took just eight college pitchers with rst-round picks since the draft began in 1965. Of those pitchers, only ve reached the big leagues with San Francisco Mike Remlinger (1987), Steve Soderstrom (1993), Kurt Ainsworth (1999), Brad Hennessey (2001), and David Aardsma (2003) combining for a mere 28 wins, 17 of which belonged to Hennessey. Granted, some did prove to be valuable trade chips. Remlinger was part of a ve-player bonanza with Seattle in 1991, going north along with Kevin Mitchell for pitchers Dave Burba, Mike Jackson, and eventual 20-game winner Bill Swift. And, Grilli was shipped to Florida along with pitcher Nate Bump at the 1999 trade deadline to acquire Livan Hernandez. The Giants also set a modern-day precedent by selecting seven players with roots in the Bay Area. In 2003, the Giants drafted Nate Schierholtz out of Chabot College in the second round. This year they followed suit by plucking right-hander Martin Agosta from St. Marys College of Moraga. Agosta led the West Coast Conference with a 9-2 record this year. Last summer he played in the Cal Ripken League and was lights out, going 4-0 for arguably the nations best wood-bat summer team not in the Cape Cod League. Wednesday, the Giants wrapped up draft week by selecting Fremont native Ryan Tella out of Auburn University. Tella attended Irvington High School and Ohlone College, before transferring to Auburn as a draft-eligible sophomore. Hes got a lot upside and hopefully hell be a Giant and we can enjoy watching him play as a part of the organization, Evans said. After selecting Cal third baseman Mitch Delno (20th round), the Giants dove into the


Giants enrich system with pitching-intensive draft

By Terry Bernal

The Giants had not drafted a college pitcher in the rst round since 2006, when they landed Tim Lincecum from the University of Washington with the 10th overall pick. Two Cy Young Awards and a World Series ring later, its obvious that one worked out quite well. On Monday, the Giants again went the college-pitching route, calling the name of Mississippi State right hander Chris Stratton. As a collegiate ace, the 6-5 Stratton won SEC Pitcher of the Year honors this year after pacing the conference with an 11-1 record. San Francisco didnt stop there, drafting seven college pitchers in the rst eight rounds. I like the fact that we got the college pitching, to be honest, said Bobby Evans, Giants Vice President of Baseball Operations. I dont think we were married to any one position or collegiate player, per se. Its just how the board fell for us versus our other options. There is some benet to adding depth to pitching, so it works to our advantage and it was certainly desirable when those guys were there. The cache of seven collegiate arms sets a draft precedent for the Giants. In 1999, the Giants drafted seven pitchers in the rst eight rounds. In 1997, the Giants also used seven of their rst eight picks on pitchers.

San Mateo talent pool for three consecutive rounds, selecting former Serra left-hander Zak Edgington in the 34th round, and a pair of CSM hurlers in right-hander Dan Grazzini in the 35th, and left-hander Clint Terry in the 36th. They rounded out the Bay Area contingent by selecting Miramonte High School shortstop Drew Jackson in the 37th round. Both the kids that are out of College of San Mateo, well get a chance to see them a little bit this summer, and project whether theyll end up signing, Evans said. I cant say, but they are good options for us down there. The other college arms the Giants drafted in the opening rounds are: Fourth-rounder Steve Okert, a power left-hander who closed at University of Oklahoma this season; fth-rounder Ty Blach, a left-handed sinker-slider guy out of Creighton University; sixth-rounder Stephen Johnson, who led the Division II Heartland Conference with 18 saves this season for St. Edwards University of Austin, Texas; seventhrounder E.J. Encinosa, a closer from University of Miami; and eighth-rounder Joe Kurrasch, who paced all Big Ten starters with a 2.05 ERA at Penn State.

Crisp leads Oakland past Rangers as As take 3 of 4


As 7, Rangers 1
defending AL champions. Oakland had lost ve straight series and gone winless in nine since beating Tampa Bay two of three May 4-6. But with strong starts from Jarrod Parker, Bartolo Colon and McCarthy and bit more offense than usual, the As were able to handle the struggling Rangers.

OAKLAND Coco Crisp hit a solo homer and bases-loaded triple to match his season total for extra-base hits and the Oakland Athletics won their rst series in more than a month, beating the Texas Rangers 7-1 on Thursday. Crisps big day at the plate helped Brandon McCarthy (5-3) win his fth straight decision as the As took three of four from the two-time

Yu Darvish (7-4) gave up six runs, six hits and six walks in 5 1-3 innings as he failed in his bid to become the rst eight-game winner in the American League and the normally powerful Rangers offense was held down once again. Brandon Moss also homered for Oakland, which outscored rst-place Texas 24-8 in the four games. The As have scored 33 runs in the past six games after having just 32 in the previous 16.

Texas has lost seven of nine games and has been held to two runs or fewer ve times in seven games in June, including in all three losses to the As. The Rangers had been held to two or fewer runs just eight times in the rst two months of the season. Crisp had two doubles and six RBIs in 114 atbats coming into the game ended a 40-game homerless drought when he took Darvish deep to make it 2-0 in the third.

Cain wins 6th straight start


Giants 8, Padres 3
Posey hit a leadoff shot in the third off Padres newcomer Jason Marquis, driving a 2-0 pitch off the third-oor balcony of the Western Metal Supply Co. brick warehouse in the left-eld corner for a 4-0 lead and his seventh homer. Pagan extended his hitting streak to 15 games when he homered to right on a 3-2 pitch from Brad Brach with one out in the seventh. Melky Cabrera was aboard on a leadoff single. Gregor Blanco hit a solo shot to right with two outs in the eighth off Alex Hinshaw. Blanco went 7 for 15 in the three-game series, with a homer, triple and two doubles, and he scored six runs. San Francisco scored two runs off three hits and Marquis throwing error in the rst. Posey had an RBI single and Brandon Belt an RBI double. Marquis (0-1) allowed four runs, two earned, on nine hits in six innings. He struck out six and walked one. Marquis was promoted from Double-A San Antonio. He signed a minor league contract on May 29. He started the season with Minnesota.

SAN DIEGO Matt Cain struck out nine in seven innings to win his sixth straight start and Buster Posey, Angel Pagan and Gregor Blanco homered at Petco Park to lead the San Francisco Giants over the San Diego Padres 8-3 Thursday. Ryan Theriot had four hits for the Giants, who committed four errors but won for the ninth time in 11 games. Leading 4-3, Cain loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth on two singles and an error on third baseman Joaquin Arias. Cain escaped the jam by getting pinch-hitter Mark Kotsay to y out to left and Cameron Maybin to hit into a double play. Cain (7-2) allowed seven hits and three runs none earned while walking one. San Francisco won two of three from the Padres (19-39), who have the worst record in the big leagues. San Diego also loaded the bases in the eighth and ninth, and failed to score. In the last two games, the Padres had the bases loaded four times twice with no outs and scored only one run. Three of San Franciscos 15 hits were homers.

Stanford sends ace against FSU NBA


Continued from page 11

James season was twice ended in Boston while playing for Cleveland, the Celtics emerging as the winner in a Pierce-James duel in Game 7 of the 2008 East seminals, then beating the Cavs in Game 6 of the second round two years later. That was James last game with Cleveland, leaving that summer for Miami and the All-Star help that Wade and Chris Bosh could provide. He needed none of it Thursday. He had 30 points by halftime and spent the night silencing the Celtics crowd and perhaps some of the doubters he somehow still has. He set the tone for the game by making 6 of 7 shots and scoring 14 points in the rst quarter, and he made sure the Heat were never challenged from there. Meanwhile, Pierce, whose 3-pointer over James was the biggest basket of Bostons Game 5 victory, missed 13 of 16 shots through three quarters, including all six 3-point attempts. The Heat obviously werent deated by that loss and came to ght, scoring 10 straight points to build a 10-point lead shortly after Mario Chalmers was called for a technical foul after getting mixed up with Ray Allen. They extended it to 12 points later in the period, taking a 26-16 lead into the second after shooting 58 percent in the period. Wade nally got on the board with a jumper to open the second, but he seemed strangely passive even with Miami trying to save its season. No matter. James didnt need the help. He had consecutive baskets for a 15-point lead and came up with a basket every time the Celtics tried to get any rhythm. He soared high above the rim and any other player for a follow dunk after the Celtics had crept within eight in the nal 2 minutes of the half. Miami led 55-42 at the break. James made 12 of his rst 13 shots before missing from the perimeter on his nal attempt of the half. Only Rondo kept it from being a blowout, scoring 19 points and adding ve assists in the half. Relishing the challenge, he even emulated Garnett by doing a couple of knuckle pushups after being knocked to the court while drawing a foul, but he couldnt keep up with James and needed some help that never arrived. strive for something. Hawk commemorates her athletic accomplishments with a bit of an award shrine shes crafted in her home ofce. Its there that the bibs, medals and photos from her (and her daughters) races go up. Its to kind of reect I guess, Hawk said. Each [race] had their own challenges. It started to spiral be proud of that sense of accomplishment.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Florida State will have to get past one of the best pitchers in college baseball to win the opening game of a best-of-three NCAA super regional series. The Seminoles face Stanfords Mark Appel (10-1, 2.27) Friday night in Tallahassee. Stanford coach Mark Marquess says Appel is the hardest thrower hes had at Stanford. That includes Mike Mussina and Cy Young Award winner Jack McDowell. Marquess wont get an argument from veteran Florida State coach Mike Martin, who said Thursday the 6-foot-5, 215-pound Appel is the toughest pitcher his hitters will face this year. I dont think you can compare him to anybody weve seen, Martin said. He should be

at the next level already. Appel is on his way. He was selected eighth overall by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Major League Baseball draft earlier this week. Appel struck out 10 or more hitters on eight occasions this season, including 11 in Stanfords regional opener last week. His breaking ball is similar to Mussina, who had a very good breaking ball, Marquess said of Appel. The thing that has made him more effective this year is his command of the fastball. Appels fastball regularly hits the mid 90s and hes been clocked as high as 98 mph along with the breaking pitch and changeup. Hes our guy, hell give us a chance to win, Marquess said. Its all about pitching. Florida State outfielder James Ramsey hopes hitting will play a role in the outcome.

The Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year was the 23rd pick overall by the St. Louis Cardinals and will be putting his .385 average up against the hard-throwing Appel. Freshman Brandon Leibrandt (7-2, 2.65) will be on the hill for the Seminoles Friday with freshman Mike Compton (11-2) scheduled to face another Stanford power pitcher, Brett Mooneyham (7-5) on Saturday. The two schools are 9-9 in previous matchups. Stanford came out of its region unblemished with a win over Fresno State and two over Pepperdine while Florida State took a pair from Samford (Ala.) after edging UAB 2-1 in its opener.

Back at No. 1, Sharapova to face Errani


PARIS Wind blew in her face, kicking up flecks of clay, and Maria Sharapova stood at the baseline, knowing she needed one more point to reach her first French Open final and return to No. 1 in the rankings. She rotated her right shoulder, the one surgically repaired 3 1/2 years ago, and served a fault. Gulp. Her next try found the mark: a second-serve ace at 104 mph that landed in a corner. It was a fitting way to close out a 6-3, 63 victory over No. 4seeded Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic in the Maria semifinals at Roland Sharapova Garros on Thursday, a fitting way to announce that Sharapova is once again at the height of her powers and at the top of her sport. Its a long road back; its a long process. Its a lot of days of frustration and uncertainty, not knowing if youll ever get there, not

knowing how much you want it, not knowing whether (there) would be a moment like that for you again, Sharapova said at her news conference, the WTAs glass vase signifying her No. 1 status sitting inches away. So theres definitely a lot of tough things you have to go through to get to this point. But when you get here, and you look back at the things that you did, and the work that you put in, and the toughest days that you can remember, its all really worth it. On Saturday, the second-seeded Russian will face 21st-seeded Sara Errani of Italy for the French Open title. Its the only major tournament Sharapova hasnt won; she can become the 10th woman to complete a career Grand Slam. I was in a position a few years ago where I didnt quite know if I would ever be here again on this stage, playing professionally. And not just at that, but at a level to get to No. 1 in the world and a first Roland Garros final for me, Sharapova said. So a very special day, no doubt. Errani felt the same way. Playing in her first Grand Slam semifinal, she beat reigning U.S. Open champion Sam Woodside for a bike ride, a swim or a run. She does all that starting her day at 4 a.m. while tending to a nine-year old and keeping a 10year marriage running strong, squeezing in workouts between lunch and picking up her little girl from school. I enjoy the exercise part of it, Hawk said. And Im competitive. Pushing myself is fun, I guess in a sick and twisted type of way. Ill be honest, youll get to a hard part in the race there is always something that gives you inspiration and makes you push just a little bit harder and get yourself through the tough parts, because theres going to be tough parts. There is no way to plan for it all. Hawk is quick to give credit to her family, who she says are very supportive. Her daughter has already completed a kids triathlon and seems to have inherited the competitive gene and her husband is her biggest cheerleader. He likes to be on the support team, Hawk said. It works out better that way. While there isnt a true way to prepare for a course like the Escape on both the physical

Stosur of Australia 7-5, 1-6, 6-3. Players like Sharapova, Serena Williams theyre accustomed to making it this far, said Erranis coach, Pablo Lozano, who held his 10-month-old son while cheering in the stands. For us, every day brings a new surprise. Indeed, its been quite a two weeks for Errani, who will play in the womens doubles final on Friday with Roberta Vinci against Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova. Entering this tournament, Errani was 0-28 against women ranked in the top 10. But she beat No. 10 Angelique Kerber in the quarterfinals, then No. 6 Stosur on Thursday and those upsets were preceded by victories over two past French Open champions, 2008s Ana Ivanovic and 2009s Svetlanta Kuznetsova. Did she ever doubt she could beat the best? Its not a question of believing or not believing, Errani said. I dont think about that. I just think about playing. I just think about going on court and giving my all. And whatever happens, happens. Ive never thought, I cant beat someone in the top 10.

Continued from page 11
In training for her rst triathlon, Hawk lost 40 pounds, and continued racing as a way of maintaining a healthier lifestyle and quenching a thirst for competition. While this will be her rst try at the Escape, Hawk had two previous chances to participate in the race and the stars simply did not align. It wasnt until she served as a volunteer for the race and watched the athletes come out of the water and labor through the course that she knew the Escape from Alcatraz was calling her name. Im a really competitive person, Hawk said. I did have the itch. I told one of my racing buddies, You know what? Were putting our name in and if we get picked, were doing it. And, they picked us and here we are. Rest assured, Hawk is ready though. She trains ve or six days a week, commuting from her home to either San Francisco or

and mental side of things, you get a sense from talking to Hawk that perhaps the course isnt ready for someone like her. The competitive energy that emanates from her seems perfect for the 1.5-mile swim, 18-mile bike ride and eight-mile run. Honestly, I dont know, Hawk said when asked what she would do if she didnt have something like Escape to quench this thirst for competition. It would be difcult. I like to

And Hawk admits, after two no-gos, nishing Escape would be pretty sweet. Were doing this one for the medal, Hawk said. How crazy is it to jump off a boat at Alcatraz and swim in the Bay? A lot of it is psychological. You can kind of psych yourself out. But thats the goal, just to chip away at it. I think this one is just one you nish. But rst, you have to take that leap. And Hawk is most denitely ready for that.

three World Player of the Year awards. But Xavis performances in what is likely his nal international tournament may be hampered by tness problems that have dogged his end to the season. unbeaten games.


there also are fears their Barcelona and Real Madrid stars are tired. Spain is looking to become the rst country to retain its European title.

Continued from page 11
This years tournament will take place in Warsaw, Krakow, Gdansk and Wroclaw in Poland, and Kiev, Donetsk, Lviv and Kharkiv in Ukraine. Hooliganism is always an issue at major soccer tournaments; this years competition has already been marred by racism concerns and political turmoil in Ukraine. The 16 teams in the championship the two co-hosts and 14 other nations that made it through a two-year qualifying tournament have been split into four groups of four. The top two in each group reach the quarternals. The nal will be played on July 1 in Kiev. Heres a look at the stars, top teams, and a few players who could surprise at Euro 2012.

Gianluigi Buffon
Buffon comes into the tournament under a cloud of betting-scam allegations as part of the fallout of the Italian match-xing scandal, but his reputation as the worlds premier goalkeeper remains intact. Tall and athletic, there are no weaknesses in the 34-year-old 2006 World Cup winners armor. A key member of an Italian backline that had the best defensive record in qualifying.

A young team which lit up the 2010 World Cup with its fearless attacking play has blossomed into a force set to be Spains biggest threat at Euro 2012. The Germans score goals for fun and cruised through their qualifying run with 10 straight wins. Question marks remain, however, over whether Germanys eight-strong Bayern Munich contingent recovered from losing the Champions League nal in dramatic style to Chelsea.

Andres Iniesta
Xavis partner in Spains and Barcelonas mideld and the scorer of the winning goal in the 2010 World Cup nal, which shot the balding Iniesta into football immortality. Iniestas quick feet and effortless dribbling ability makes him stand out, with Xavi describing him as the complete player.

Mario Balotelli
Whether its exploding reworks in his bathroom or ripping off his jersey to display messages on T-shirts, the enigmatic Balotelli always provides a story. The striker has all the talent in the world and unbelievable coolness under pressure, but has too many off days and could easily implode for Italy this month.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Moody and temperamental, Ibrahimovic is often left frustrated by the limitations of his Sweden teammates. But its a different story at club level, where he has played for the top clubs in Spain and Italy. Outrageously skillful and a great scorer, he has a distinctive languid style that his critics attack when things arent going right. Swedens only world-class player.

The Dutch challenge England for the tag as Europes biggest underachievers, but also rival Spain and Germany as the most talented team at Euros. Defensively, they look suspect, but they seem unstoppable going forward, led by the lethal Van Persie. Staying true to their expansive, offensive style will be key; they retreated into their shell in the 2010 World Cup nal in 2010 and deservedly lost.

Wayne Rooney
For Balotelli, read Rooney. His crazy kick-out at a Montenegro defender leaves him suspended for Englands rst two games at Euros, but there was never a doubt hed be picked on the squad. The Manchester United striker can be the best player in the world Wayne Rooney when hes on and is one of Englands few world-class stars.

Best players
Cristiano Ronaldo
If it wasnt for Lionel Messi ... Ronaldo has been engaged in a hotly disputed ght with Messi to be considered the best player on the planet, but the Argentine, a three-time World Player of the Year, always seems to get the upper hand. The ashy Portugal forward has all the Cristiano tricks in the book, but has Ronaldo been accused of never producing his best on the international stage. He can change all that here.

Mesut Oezil
After two stunning seasons with Real Madrid, comparisons are starting to be drawn between Oezil and French great Zinedine Zidane. Rising to prominence at the 2010 World Cup, the graceful playmaker has the rare ability to make the perfect pass and will be the central component of Germanys attacking play at Euros.

The French head into Euro 2012 on the back of an unbeaten run of 21 games and coach Laurent Blanc looks to have unied the squad after its infamous mutiny at the World Cup in South Africa. Much will depend on the inuence forwards Franck Ribery and Benzema can have and, like the Dutch, Frances defense appears to be its weak link.

Robin van Persie

His goal-scoring exploits for Arsenal this season have made Van Persie one of the most sought players in world football. He has a wand of a left foot to rival even the great Messi and will lead the Netherlands as they look to shake off their underachievers tag.

By transforming international football with its tika-taka passing style, top-ranked Spain has been the team to beat for the past four years. The defending world and European champions are classy and stylish, but arent unbeatable. The Spanish are without leading striker David Villa and defender Carles Puyol because of injury, and So, Ive been working so hard on getting a scholarship so it was really rewarding when I got the word from my coach that I would get it. I couldnt even have dreamed that this would happen. She maybe couldnt dream it, but it was obvious her coaches noticed her determination. Micek is coming off a season in which she was named co-captain of the basketball team the only junior to hold that honor. I never really thought of myself as a leader. And I wouldnt say Im an outspoken leader, Micek said, but I denitely like to lead by example and I think thats one of the reasons why my coach made me co-captain. The respect that Ive gotten from my teammates is The fourth inning was the only frame San Mateo was retired in order, but it scored three more in the fth. Watkins drove in a pair with a double and Daniel Madigan drove in the third run of the inning with a sacrice y to center. Watkins picked up his fourth RBI of the game in the sixth on a sacrice y to give the Shockers an 11-0 lead. It was important run because even though San Francisco scored in the top of the seventh, the game still ended

The Azzurri won the World Cup in 2006 amid the fallout from a match-xing scandal back home. Could history repeat itself six years later at these Euros? Whether the Italian league crisis unites the squad remains to be seen. Italy has arguably the best defense in the competition and in strikers Antonio Cassano and Balotelli, the Italians have two mercurial players who could light up the tournament. great. It was really a great thing to get, especially my junior year. It helped me stick with it. Once we walk out on the oor and its time for practice, it wasnt like, these girls are on scholarship and youre not. The fact that I have it now, it puts my mind at ease. Its always been in the back of my mind. At the front of her mind is a senior year where she can concentrate on basketball and keeping her 3.6 GPA up as she studies advertising and public relations. The Bay Area is denitely calling me, Micek said about her post graduation plans, especially the weather. But Ive learned to love the Midwest. because of the 10-run mercy rule. The game was scheduled for nine innings. While the San Mateo offense was going crazy, Timko kept putting zeroes up on the scoreboard. [My outing] was all right. My curveball was good today, which is what I wanted to work on, Timko said. We were calling changeups on the rst pitch, just to work on my offspeed. I probably wouldnt be doing that if the game was closer.

Karim Benzema
France nally has a striker to take over from Thierry Henry. The barrel-chested Benzemas explosive pace and unforgiving nishing saw him emerge as Real Madrids No. 1 striker by the end of the season. He has been Frances leader up front in its sensational recent run of 21 pen, I should just give up. It was great having my teammates, and they became my best friends and they really just helped me to keep pushing through. Thanks to them, I fought through it and I guess it turned out well. Well enough to the point that Loyola recently informed her that her hard work on and off the court (Micek is also the teams ofcial blogger) had paid off and she had earned a scholarship that covers her senior season of studies. I am so excited, Micek said. Its been a long three years, denitely. Ive been working so hard to get it and I was the only person not on scholarship on my team and I saw the girls getting their books for free, just everything. the rst pitch he saw to the right-center eld gap for a two-run triple and the Shockers were off and running. Nick Rich followed with a sacrice y to left and San Mateo led 3-0 after one inning.

Conci scored on a drive by Watkins, who then scored on a Kyle Wallou groundout.

NEWARK, N.J. Winning Game 4 of the Stanley Cup nals did more than keep the New Jersey Devils alive. It gave them a sniff, a scent, a feeling. Call it momentum if you want. For one game, Martin Brodeur and the Eastern Conference champions showed they could not only play with the Los Angeles Kings, they could beat them, too. The 3-1 win in Los Angeles on Wednesday prevented the Kings coronation ceremony and forced the NHL to pack the Cup and ship it back to New Jersey for Game 5 Saturday night. Now comes the hard part for coach Peter DeBoer and the Devils. They have to follow it up with another win over a team that has posted a 15-3 mark in the postseason and not lost consecutive games. If New Jersey can somehow nd a way, though, the Cup will be up for grabs. We know every time we can win a game and chip away, the end goal gets a little closer, DeBoer said Thursday shortly after the Devils ight from the West Coast landed. I know it is a cliche, but I think if we win on Saturday night this series really takes a turn.

Volvo convertible good for year round

By Ann M. Job

Summer may be the usual time for convertibles, but the stylish, capable Volvo C70 is a car for all seasons. With a three-piece, steel hardtop, the 2012 C70 looks good, rides well and offers a secure, pleasant driving environment year round. In fact, when the roof was up and in place on the C70 test car, passers-by didnt realize this Volvo was a convertible at all. Best of all, the Swedish-built C70 is a recommended buy of Consumer Reports, with reliability listed as above average. It has numerous safety features, too. While federal government crash tests have not included the C70, the 2012 car has three types of air bags for front-seat passengers frontal, side-seat and head curtain air bags. Dynamic stability traction control, automatic height-adjusting front shoulder belts, antiwhiplash front head restraints and a rollover protection system also are standard, while a blind spot monitor system and rear park assist are options. The 2012 C70 also has a lower starting retail price than other luxury convertibles. Specically, manufacturers suggested retail price, including destination charge, is $41,325 for a base, two-door C70 with 227-horsepower, turbocharged, five-cylinder engine and Geartronic automatic transmission with Auto Stick, shift-it-yourself function. The shifting does not require use of a manual clutch pedal. Competitors include the 2012 Audi A5 Cabriolet that has a starting retail price of $43,475 with 211-horsepower, turbocharged four cylinder and continuously variable transmission. And the 2012 BMW 328i Convertible has a starting retail price of $48,495 with 230-horsepower, six-cylinder engine and manual transmission. Note that the C70 for 2012 includes a new

DESTINATION CHARGE: $875.


1. TOYOTA PRIUS V If fuel economy is your main concern, consider the Prius V hybrid wagon,which went on sale last fall.The ve-seat Prius V gets an estimated 42 miles per gallon in city and highway driving, which isnt as good as the 50-mpg standard Prius small car but better than its non-hybrid competitors among crossovers. Its also roomier than a standard Prius, with 13 additional cubic feet of luggage space behind the rear seats.That cargo space doubles when you fold down the rear seats,which also recline for young nappers. Champion says the Prius V isnt the most comfortable vehicle for a long trip,and its noisier than some competitors,but it can get you further before you have to ll up. The Prius V starts at $26,550. A well-equipped version, with a runroof and a hands-free parallel parking system that parks the car by itself, will set you back $30,140. 2. HONDA CR-V The CR-V, which was redesigned last fall, is consistently one of the best-selling crossovers in the country. Car buying site praises the ve-seaters car-like ride and fuel economy,which averages 26 miles per gallon.It has 37 cubic feet of cargo space the equivalent of 52 grocery bags behind the rear seats. The CR-V has a lot of standard family-friendly features, including a backup camera and a conversation mirror that

makes it easier for parents to see whats going on in the back seat. The CR-V starts at $22,495.To get Hondas rear entertainment system, which has a 7-inch screen mounted above the rear seats and wireless headphones, you have to upgrade to a $27,945 EX-L model. 3. MAZDA5 Its hard to beat a minivan for convenience when traveling with a family.The Mazda5,which was redesigned for the 2012 model year, offers minivan amenities like dual sliding doors in a small package thats fun to drive. It seats six, with second-row captains chairs that can recline or fold down for easier access to the third row. Its not as roomy as its rivals,and its four-cylinder engine has less power than their V6s. But it also gets better fuel economy: 28 miles per gallon, compared with 24 on the Toyota Sienna. The Mazda5 starts at $19,625 for a manual transmission.For $1,200, you can add a seven-inch overhead monitor with a remote control and wireless headphones. 4. HYUNDAI AZERA The redesigned Azera,which went on sale earlier this year,has the most head and leg room of any large sedan and an ample, 16-cubic-foot trunk. For comparisons sake, thats two more

DETROIT Its an American rite of passage: The family road trip. While everyone loves the destination whether it be the Grand Canyon or the beach a few hours from home not many people relish the time spent in the car. But the type of car you choose can help ease that discomfort. Large sedans or minivans are best for families with younger children, because the windows sit lower and make it easier for kids to look out, says David Champion, senior director of auto testing at Consumer Reports. Station wagons are great, too, because its easier to reach in back and get snacks. When it comes to features, Champion suggests nixing built-in navigation, which can be pricey.

cubic feet than the Toyota Avalon, a close competitor. Among the Azeras standard features are a backup camera and heated front and rear seats. At 23 miles per gallon, fuel economy isnt great,but its comparable to others in the segment. The Azera starts at $32,000. 5. FORD FLEX Champions hands-down favorite for a road trip is the Ford Flex, a seven-passenger wagon that was redesigned for the 2013 model year and went on sale earlier this year. According to Ford,the Flex has the most second- and third-oor leg room of any large utility vehicle, and theres 43 cubic feet of cargo space if the third row is folded down. It also has one feature exclusive to Ford: inatable seat belts in the rear that give extra protection to kids in a crash.The Flex gets 23 miles per gallon. It starts at $30,885, but many features cost extra, and they can add up in a hurry.The inatable belts are a $195 option, for example,while an entertainment system with two 7-inch DVD monitors that can be installed for $658. The ultimate family feature a refrigerated center console in the back seat that can chill seven cans is a $795 option in the $42,000 Flex Limited. The sportier Ford Escape crossover, which arrives in dealerships this month, might also be a good road trip contender, but it hasnt yet been tested by safety agencies.

Inscription package that adds a higher-powered, turbocharged, ve-cylinder engine producing 250 horsepower and more torque than the standard C70 engine. This powerplant was in the C70 test car, and boosted the base price, before other options, to $45,225. The C70 is an oft-overlooked Volvo model in a showroom of more family-oriented vehicles. But C70 sales in the United States in the last calendar year shot up to 10,672 from fewer than 4,000 the year before. Maybe buyers see the C70 as it was marketed at its 2006 debut as a sexy Volvo. Instead of a lightweight fabric roof, the C70s top is smooth metal and exceptional at keeping outside sounds from the interior. Instead of folding down when not in use, the metal roof stacks its three pieces, one atop the other, into part of the trunk. Though Volvo has had a complicated path of late it was originally a Sweden-based company, then was bought by Ford Motor Co. and then jettisoned in 2010 to the Chinese rm Geely Holding Group the 2012 C70 tester felt very much like a Volvo of the past decade. It had Volvos trademark strong turbo power, safety equipment and inscrutable radio controls on the center stack of the dashboard.

Also, the leather front bucket seats were comfortable, fatigue-free resting spots for which Volvo is known. These attractive seats and the minimalist-appearing interior design help set the interior of the C70 apart from competitors. While there were plenty of features in the C70, many arent openly displayed or gussied up with shiny silver bits. Rather, C70 controls are rather unadorned. Analog gauges almost seem understated compared with larger, glitzier gauges in other cars. Just 3 inches longer, from bumper to bumper, than a Honda Civic sedan, the twodoor, 2012 C70 is a maneuverable 15 feet long. Steering is light, and the suspension is midway between firm and soft. Theres enough softness so passengers notice weight transfer on mountain curves, but riding on broken pavement is not a harsh experience. Front-seat riders in the C70 have good legroom of 42.3 inches, which is more than the 41.2 in the front seat of the Audi A5 Cabrio. Front-seat headroom in the C70 is a commendable 38.2 inches with the roof on, compared with the Audis 40 inches. The two back seats are a bit tight but still usable. The C70 beats both the Audi and BMW 328i Convertible in trunk space, with 12.8 cubic feet available when the roof is up and 6 cubic feet when the roof is down. C70 engines have traditional turbo lag when a driver wants to accelerate, especially in quick, demanding circumstances.

Prometheus an intense trip

By Christy Lemire

Nothing could possibly satisfy the fervent expectation that has built for Ridley Scotts sorta-prequel to his genredefining Alien, but Prometheus, the directors return to science ction for the rst time in 30 years, comes close.

Strikingly beautiful, expertly paced, vividly detailed and scary as hell, it holds you in its grip for its entirety and doesnt let go. Youll squeal, youll squirm at one point, I was curled up in a little ball in my seat in a packed screening room and youll probably continue feeling a lingering sense of anxiety afterward. Thats how effective it is in

creating and sustaining an intensely suspenseful mood. But the further you get away from outer-space journey, the more you may begin to notice some problems with the plot both specific, nagging holes and a general narrative fuzziness. Describing some of them would give too much away, and we wouldnt dream of doing that. Well just say

that Scott and writers Damon Lindelof (executive producer of Lost) and Jon Spaihts vaguely touch on the notions of belief vs. science and creation vs. Darwinism, philosophical debates that never feel fully developed. Still, the performances are excellent, especially from Michael Fassbender as a robot

The San Mateo County Bar Association has been named to receive the 2012 Harrison Tweed Award for the continuing and pervasive excellence of its Private Defender Program over the past 43 years. The Award will be presented to the SMCBA at the Annual Meeting of the American Bar Association on Aug. 3 in Chicago. The Award is given on behalf of the American Bar Association Standing Committee on Legal Aid and Indigent Defendants and the National Legal Aid and Defender Association. San Mateo County does not have a traditional Public Defenders Office. Since 1968, the County of San Mateo has contracted with the San Mateo County Bar Association to provide indigent criminal defense and to fulfill this obligation the Bar Association has created the Private Defender Program, which works to guarantee that a person accused of a crime who is too poor to employ an attorney is ensured the Sixth Amendment right to the assistance of counsel for his or her defense. The Private Defender Program is appointed by the San Mateo County Superior Court to represent all persons financially eligible for counsel at public expense, including but not limited to: persons accused of all felonies and misdemeanors, juveniles in delinquency cases, juveniles and parents in dependency cases and cases brought pursuant to the provisions of the LantermanPetris-Short Act. Chief Defender John Digiacinto, who has been with the PDP since 1989 and has been in charge since 2000, is responsible for the overall operation of the program. Digiacinto has personally handled the complete range of criminal and juvenile cases, up to the defense of the most serious of felonies, including capital murder cases. At the time of arraignment in the San Mateo County Superior Court, a person

who wishes to be represented by a courtappointed attorney completes a financial declaration form and submits it to the Court. If the Court determines that the defendant is eligible for court-appointed counsel, the Private Defender Program is appointed. Every day, at every arraignment calendar, there is a PDP lawyer present to represent each qualifying person. All of the approximately 100 lawyers on the PDP panel to whom criminal cases are assigned are in private practice in San Mateo County. As would be expected, the PDP thoroughly checks the personal and professional backgrounds of all attorneys who apply for acceptance to the panel. In addition, an evaluation is made of the devotion of the applicant to the representation of the poor as opposed to a desire to create a supplemental cash flow. The single most important factor in evaluating an applicant is his or her reputation for honesty and integrity in all segments of the criminal justice community. The PDP has been fortunate to attract and retain highly skilled lawyers both from private practices and from other defender and prosecutorial agencies. The Hon. Beth Labson Freeman, Presiding Judge of the San Mateo County Superior Court, said in support of PDPs nomination for the award: Enabling private practitioners to serve the community while maintaining a private practice has been the cornerstone of the success of the PDP. Our

county has been able to draw from a more varied and experienced field of attorneys than it otherwise would have been able to accomplish. Cases that present novel and complex legal and factual issues are directed to attorneys who have been vetted and trained by the PDP. The vast array of specialized skills required to assist our indigent parties could never be amassed in a more traditional public defender program, which would in turn require a search for a private attorney who was not accustomed to handling indigent defense. Laurence A. Benner, Professor of Law and Managing Director of the Criminal Justice Programs of California Western School of Law, in a letter of support for the San Mateo County Private Defender Program in its candidacy for the Harrison Tweed Award, said, It is fair to say that the PDP is in fact a model for the nation, demonstrating how a coordinated assigned counsel system should operate. The PDP is structured at every step to ensure high quality, client centered representation from the selection and training of lawyers to be on its panels, to access to the investigative and forensic resources necessary to conduct an effective defense, to the control of attorney caseloads and evaluation of performances and outcomes.

Fonda not taking Cannes glam attention seriously

Duplass picks five favorite time-travel movies

By Christy Lemire

Not Guaranteed feels like this lm ... i.e., science ction as a prism to observe matters of the heart in a funny, human way.

Mark Duplass is staring in Safety Not Guaranteed.

LOS ANGELES If it seems like Mark Duplass is everywhere these days, its probably because he is. And he doesnt even need a time machine to accomplish this feat. This week, he stars in Safety Not Guaranteed as a loner who takes out a mysterious classied ad seeking a partner to travel with him back in time. Next week, he stars in Your Sisters Sister as a guy who gets emotionally entangled with his best friend (Emily Blunt) and her lesbian sister (Rosemarie DeWitt) at a remote lake house. Behind the camera, Duplass and his brother, Jay, recently wrote and directed the comedy Jeff, Who Lives at Home and next month they have The Do-Deca-Pentathlon. And of course, hes also part of the talented ensemble cast of the FX fantasy football comedy series The League, a fourth season of which is set to begin in the fall. So, yeah, hes a busy guy. But he was nice enough to take a few moments to select ve of his favorite time-travel movies. Here they are, in no particular order, in his own words:

Somewhere in Time (1980):

Yes. Its SUPER melodramatic. Cheezy. Over the top. But, watch this movie when you are sick or feeling a little vulnerable, and you will cry your eyes out. Guaranteed. A man time travels out of sheer force of will and, well, love. And, the score ... good God.

Timecrimes (2008):
You gotta see this little Spanish gem from Nacho Vigalondo. It was at Sundance the year I had Baghead there. A man travels back in time ... but only about an hour. Really fun. And a little scary.

Primer (2004):
This may be the cheapest science ction time-travel lm ever made. Shot for a reported $7,000, this intensely creative mood piece won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance in 2004. Very smart use of a plain old garage and average storage space.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004):

This is one of my favorite lms of all time. I call it lo- sci- cos its really more about the relationships than the science ction elements themselves. In a lot of ways, Safety

Bill & Teds Excellent Adventure (1989):

The ultimate! How can you go wrong when the time machine is a phone booth and George Carlin is your mentor? See Keanu Reeves play the role he was born to play. This movie is a (expletive) blast.

New Girl star to his fans: Enough with the man hugs
By Alicia Rancilo

Safety Not Guaranteedstars Aubrey Plaza,left, in a rare leading role as Darius and Jake Johnson,right,as Jeff.

Safetya guaranteed charmer

By Christy Lemire

In his feature directing debut, Safety Not Guaranteed, Colin Trevorrow manages the tricky feat of moving subtly and seamlessly between several different genres within a relatively short period of time. With a low-budget intimacy, his lm begins life as an oddball road-trip comedy, then turns unexpectedly romantic before becoming a genuinely paranoid, sci- thriller. It also provides as welcome showcase for Aubrey Plaza in a rare leading role as Darius, a sullen intern at a Seattle magazine who becomes the reluctant participant in a pseudo-journalistic investigation. In lms like Funny People and in the TV series Parks and Recreation, shes honed a dryly sarcastic, cool-girl persona; its a pleasure to see her soften and show some vulnerability here. The clever premise from screenwriter Derek Connolly nds Darius and two of her co-workers cynical reporter Jeff (Jake Johnson) and fellow intern Arnau (Karan Soni) traveling to nd the person who placed an intriguing classied ad. Wanted: Someone to go back in

time with me. This is not a joke, it reads in part. Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed. They track down Kenneth (Mark Duplass), a loner grocery store clerk, in a small, coastal Washington town, then try to inltrate his life and get to the bottom of his bizarre story. Whats lovely is that while Kenneth is a mist and more than a little out-there, the movie never makes fun of him. Well, the mullet and the jean jacket are played for kitschy laughs, but Duplass brings an earnestness and a sweetness to the character that make him surprisingly complex and compelling. Darius irts with Kenneth and makes him think shes completely along for the ride, adopting his hilarious self-serious manner of speaking with phrases like: There no sense in nonsense when the heats hot. But as she gets to know him through break-ins to steal equipment and target practice in the woods, she eventually nds herself warming up to him, perhaps for the rst time ever. In the lms most charming scene, in which Kenneth serenades her by the campre and Duplass really can sing its nally obvious to us what she sees in him. Meanwhile, Jeff spends his days

drinking at the local dive bar and trying to hook up with an old ing from his youth; the scene-stealing, wisecracking Johnson makes this inherently shallow, selsh character work. As both he and Darius get sucked deeper into these newly forged relationships, the quiet, nerdy Arnau consistently serves as the voice of reason but hell also undergo a transformation he didnt expect. Together, the three mismatched coworkers share an easy, teasing banter that gives their journey real buoyancy. And speaking of going on a trip, this is a time-travel movie that knows you think time-travel movies are ridiculous, yet it has a romantic, admittedly Spielbergian streak that suggests anything is possible in the realm of sci- storytelling. The ending doesnt completely work what happens to the characters might have been more powerful if it had been implied rather than shown but you have to admire the fact that, rather than turning to the safety of snark, this little movie sticks to its big idea: All you gotta do is believe. Safety Not Guaranteed, a FilmDistrict release, is rated R for language including some sexual references. Running time: 85 minutes. Three stars out of four.

NEW YORK Jake Johnson says the strangest thing about fame so far isnt seeing himself on TV in Foxs New Girl, or getting recognized in the street. Its the number of men his own age who will ask for a photo with him alone. It confuses me a little, he said in a recent interview. Well have our arms around each other and Ill think, Our ears are touching. Its not offensive. It just doesnt need to happen. My brother is my best friend in the world and in our lives weve hugged 15 times. With fame, you cant be that guy who says no. So, the surprising thing of fame is the amount of man arms that have been around my shoulders for photo opportunities. With anecdotes like that and exposure as Nick Miller, the unmotivated and surly roommate of Zooey Deschanels Jess, Johnson might have to live with more man hugs. The 33year-old actor also has an independent film out Friday called Safety Not Guaranteed with Aubrey Plaza of Parks and Recreation. The film is based on the true story of a guy who posted a classified ad looking for love that also said he could time travel. Johnson plays a magazine writer who decides to write a story about the man who posted it. He also has a film in development that he pitched with a writing partner which Steve Carell has attached himself to. If all goes as planned, Carell and Johnson could play brothers in the movie. Johnson says he started out wanting to be a playwright like Sam Shepard or David Mamet. He recalled one of his first attempts at writing that taught him a big lesson about taking ownership of his work. He wrote a very serious little one act play about drugs and children that a theater picked up to produce as part of a series. The director said, We dont need you around. Just come the night of the show and enjoy your work and I thought like, Sounds perfect. If I dont have to work, my man, Im not gonna. So, my girlfriend and I, you know, showed up and the show starts and Im like, Oh, what a drag. So I turn to my girlfriend and I go like, This one sucks and she looks at me like, Youre an idiot and I realized it was mine. I went home, cried my eyes out and was devastated. He jokes about pitching ideas on New Girl to the shows creator and executive producer, Liz Meriwether: Shell go, What, Jake? Im so tired. And Ill go, This is how it has to be. And shell go, No, just say the lines.

the city, Meier said. San Mateo Councilman Robert Ross understands SPIs desire to convert the space to retail and has also spent time talking to some of the hockey league players who currently use the ice rink. We anticipate a retail use would produce increased sales tax on a continual basis, Ross said. Ross said some of the ice hockey players who use the rink expressed strong desires to keep it while others said they would not mind its closure since there are other rinks nearby in Belmont, Redwood City, San Jose and Dublin. The city should be open to negotiating with Bridgepointes owners, Ross said. I am condent we will work for a win-win situation, Ross said. Councilman Jack Matthews was on the Planning Commission when it made the decision to keep the ice rink at the old Fashion Island site back in the late 1990s. Their stand will have baked goods for sale as well. Myers and her children are still debating the cost of lemonade but are leaning toward 50 cents a glass. Either way, theyll be selling treats from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at 343 De Anza Ave. in San Carlos. Theyre hoping to raise $100. As of Wednesday afternoon, $18 had been raised. Jeanie Schmidt and her family husband Todd Seller and 6-year-old son Killian Seller recently moved back to the area after spending a year in Oregon. She saw a note about the lemonade stand through her sons online school It sounded like a good opportunity for us, said Schmidt. The family has lost a number of people to cancer including Schmidts mom, Killian Sellers grandmother, to breast cancer just a few years ago. Gearing up for the weekend sale has been a family event. Schmidt said her husband created iers and shirts. Theyve gone of Scotts classics in the same category as Alien and Blade Runner, but youve got to admire its ambition.) David is part of a crew of space explorers traveling to a remote moon on a trillion-dollar mission in the year 2093, hoping to nd answers to nothing less than the origin of mankind on Earth. (Dont they know they should have been looking in central Texas? Thats where Terrence Malick searched in The Tree of Life.) Noomi Rapace, star of the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo lms, continues to forge a strong screen presence as Dr. Elizabeth Shaw, a scientist who has managed to nd a balance between her religious faith and her work-related discoveries. She and her boyfriend, the more spiritually skeptical As I remember, ice skaters descended on us en masse, Matthews said. So the city sided with the skaters and mandated in the propertys master plan that the rink or a similar recreational use stay put even if the property is sold. San Mateo Ice Center owners have been through this before. The rink was the only facility kept from the ashes of Fashion Island. This was because the City Council believed the city was underserved in recreation facilities, so keeping the rink was a top priority, said Mike Benesh, managing partner at the Ice Center. The ice center wants to stay put, Benesh said. We look forward to working with the city and the landlord to keep the ice center ... a fun destination for the entire family. We have thousands of kids in our skating and hockey programs, not to mention all of the classes and fundraisers we do with surrounding cities and schools. Its a thriving business that is an integral part of the community with huge suparound town passing out iers in hopes of raising awareness. Theyre also offering to donated 10 percent of the June prots from their screen printing business, Onyx Wear, to the cause. Schmidt added it will also be a wonderful opportunity for her son to practice meeting and talking with people. The family plans to run a lemonade stand from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Marlin Cove at Foster City Boulevard and Marlin Avenue. Theyre hoping to raise $1,000. As of Wednesday afternoon, $105 had been raised. Holding a lemonade stand to raise revenue for childhood cancer research was inspired by a little girl named Alexandra Alex Scott who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a type of childhood cancer, shortly before her rst birthday, according to the foundations website. In 2000, the day after turning 4, Scott received a stem cell transplant. She told her mom once out of the hospital she intended to hold a lemonade stand to raise money so her doctors could help Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green), have found signs in spots around the globe that aliens visited tens of thousands of years ago and left us an invitation to swing by and say howdy whenever we had a chance. Thats what they think, at least. The rest of the crew includes Charlize Theron, radiating icy intimidation as the administrator from the private corporation funding the trip, and Idris Elba as the ships sexy, smart-alecky captain. Everyone else is probably a goner. If youve ever seen this kind of movie, you know this is not a spoiler. When they all nally awaken from their two-year sleep and arrive at this gorgeously severe land, they (naturally) stumble upon secrets and perils they never could have imagined. Some of them are gooey. Thats about all


port, Benesh said. The Ice Center has hired an attorney who specializes in zoning to help it through the process. The Ice Center contends it may be a ploy by SPI to boost the value of the property in case it wants to sell it. But SPIs Meier said the company intends to keep Bridgepointe in its portfolio for years to come. We have no intention of selling the property, Meier told the Daily Journal. SPI simply wants to maximize its prots and make a fair trade with the city at the same time, Meier said. The citys Parks and Recreation and Planning commissions will likely weigh in on SPIs request to amend its master plan before the City Council will consider the issue.

Playing elds are in high demand in San Mateo and grass elds are often closed for months due to inclement weather or for maintenance. Meier thinks its a good trade-off. He also said the ice rink does not serve San Mateo residents like a turfed eld at the King Center would. SPI proposes to install an all-weather synthetic turf eld at a cost of $787,000 and then replace it 10 to 12 years later with a new turf eld at a cost of $437,000, Meier said. SPI is also willing to install a rest room facility at Mariners Island Park in the amount of $200,000, Meier said. New retail uses where the ice rink now sits could produce $28.2 million in retail sales annually and $282,000 in sales tax revenue for

$1 million toward childhood cancer research in one weekend. Locally, two stands in San Carlos and Foster City will be offering chilled drinks for all this weekend. Its kind of a rite of passage, Dena Myers said of lemonade stands in general. Myers, mother of 4-year-old Riley and 2year-old Eli, has often looked for ways to support local causes that allows her family to get involved. When she came across Alexs Lemonade Stand Foundation, she thought it was a fun idea. Her little ones are excited. I think it allows them to learn that the good feeling you get from helping someone else can be fun, Myers said.

other kids like her. She raised $2,000 and continued the annual tradition of a lemonade stand until her death in August 2004 at 8 years old. Her family kept the tradition going through Pennsylvania-based Alexs Lemonade Stand Foundation. The Myers will host a lemonade stand, named Lemon Aid for Childhood Cancer Research from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 9 at 343 De Anza Ave. in San Carlos. The Sellers and Schmidts will host a lemonade stand, named Kick Cancer ~ Killians Kickn Ade, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 9 and Sunday, June 10 at Marlin Cove at Foster City Boulevard and Marlin Avenue. Those who cant make it out can also make a $10 donation by texting lemonade E83222, to support the Foster City effort, or lemonade E83478, to support the San Carlos effort, to 85944. To learn more about the Alexs Lemonade Stand Foundation well say about that because you really should experience it all for yourself. But the paranoia becomes palpable, and a lot of its impact comes from how dramatic and dazzlingly seamless the special effects are. Scott makes crisp, immersive use of 3-D in Prometheus, providing encounters that would seem too close for comfort anyway with a nerve-wracking sense of claustrophobia. The reason for the journey may seem a bit muddled, but what happens once they get there is undeniably powerful. Prometheus, a Twentieth Century Fox release, is rated R for sci- violence including some intense images, and brief language. Running time: 123 minutes. Three stars out of four.

with the looks and impeccable manners of an adult but the innocence and troublemaking instincts of a child. His character, the genteel, fair-haired David, serves as an homage to Scotts own work as he calls to mind Ian Holms android Ash from the original Alien. His eerily calm, precise demeanor also is reminiscent of the HAL 9000 computer program in 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the pop-culture inuences that shape Davids habits and speech are a clever celebration of the power of classic cinema in general. (Prometheus probably will not go on to be considered one


tion to the location is already offered but, once on the site, there isnt much nearby to distract students. Alternatively, the idea of looking for land along Rollins Road in Burlingame and Millbrae was thrown out as it is also close to transportation options. The group is independent of the Hillsdale Parent Student Organization, but it also recently came out against the relocation of Peninsula onto the campus. Hillsdales concerns are not new. The San Mateo High Parent Teacher Organization also penned an online petition opposing the idea which has more than 700 signatures. Laurence said part of the outreach process has been to gather pros and cons from those in the community during talks. He also welcomed the opportunity to talk with groups if anyone was interested in learning more. Laurence made a presentation to the San Mateo City Council in May. During the meeting, Police Chief Susan Manheimer explained the departments concerns with locating Peninsula onto the San Mateo High School campus since the North Central neighborhood the school is located in has gang issues and some students at the continuation school have gang affiliations.

and Facebook and more than 100 written signatures against moving Peninsula onto the Hillsdale campus for a variety of reasons. Placing Peninsula on Hillsdale, for example, would move the school from the districts northern point to its southern point defeating the purpose of centralizing the continuation school. As conceptualized, building on Hillsdale would require space currently used for sports fields that residents were unsure could be relocated on the campus. And, Hillsdale is projecting enrollment to grow. Additional space could be used to accommodate that increase down the road. Without it, Hillsdale could have its own space issues in the future, according to the group. In addition to the options being considered, the group had another for the district to consider: Being located on or near the College of San Mateo. The proximity to CSM, they noted, exposes students to collegiate opportunities. Also, public transporta-

Generally, the council expressed concerns about the school being relocated on either San Mateo or Hillsdale high schools. All the options have drawbacks. Placing the school on district-owned property might be easier since it requires less money and fewer approvals from outside agencies. In terms of district-owned property, the district could consider doing something on Crestmoor, using surplus land at Hillsdale

High School or reconfiguring the San Mateo High School campus. A conceptual proposal to move Peninsula to San Mateo High Schools campus isnt an easy one. It includes moving the district office to where is not yet known; shifting the adult school and building Peninsula on the adult schools current location. While possible, the idea raised a number of concerns from the board in January including reducing the open space, putting more people on a crowded parcel and worsening an already bad traffic situation. Another aspect to this conversation is the Crestmoor High School site which was previously deemed to be unused or unneeded land for educational purposes if Peninsula was relocated. The decision opens up the option to sell the property, a move San Bruno residents have widely criticized. With a bad real estate market, the board has put off making decisions for a while since its not the best time to sell property. The board is expected to take on the topic in the fall.

Find Me led police to an apartment building in the 1600 block of Oxford Street. After an initial investigation, police were unable to nd the stolen iPad or identify any suspects, Sgt. Sean Hart said. On Saturday, however, the victim contacted police to say that recently taken photographs of a teenage girl and boy had automatically uploaded to his iCloud storage account. Investigators were able to identify the 15-

year-old girl and 16-year-old boy, and returned to the apartments at 1619 Oxford St., where the suspects were located and taken into custody, police said. Police subsequently identied the pair as suspects in a second home burglary that occurred in the 300 block of Newcastle Drive on May 30. Both have allegedly confessed to being involved in the two burglaries, according to police. Police have not recovered the stolen property, Hart said. An undisclosed amount of cash was seized that is believed to have come from the sale of the items.

U.N. monitors shot in Syria

By Zeina Karam and Edith M. Lederer

Around the world

The confrontations come during Yemens campaign to retake parts of the south from al-Qaida following a year of internal turmoil. Military officials say al-Qaida militants tried to storm a small town north of the groups stronghold of Jaar in Abyan province on Thursday. Armed civilians along with soldiers backed by artillery fought off the alQaida militants, ofcials said. At least 20 were killed in the battle

BEIRUT U.N. observers came under re Thursday as they tried to reach the site of the latest reported mass killing in Syria about 80 people, including women and children who were shot or stabbed. The deaths added urgency to diplomatic efforts to end the escalating bloodshed. As reports emerged of what would be the fourth such mass slaying of civilians in Syria in the last two weeks, the United States condemned President Bashar Assad, saying he has doubled down on his brutality and duplicity. International envoy Ko Annan, whose peace plan brokered in April has not been implemented, warned against allowing mass killings to become part of everyday reality in Syria. If things do not change, the future is likely to be one of brutal repres-

The danger of full-scale civil war is imminent and real,with catastrophic consequences for Syria and the region.
U.N.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

sion, massacres, sectarian violence, and even all-out civil war, Annan told the U.N. General Assembly in New York. All Syrians will lose. U.N. diplomats said Annan was proposing that world powers and key regional players, including Iran, come up with a new strategy to end the 15-month conict at a closed meeting of the Security Council that took place Thursday. Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Annan highlighted the urgency of taking action to diffuse the situation. Standing alongside Annan and League of Arab States Secretary General Nabil Elaraby, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

echoed the sense of urgency. The three of us agree: Syria can quickly go from a tipping point to a breaking point. The danger of fullscale civil war is imminent and real, with catastrophic consequences for Syria and the region, Ban warned. Any proposal to resolve the situation, however, must be acceptable to Russia and China, which have protected ally from past U.N. sanctions, as well as the U.S. and its European allies, they said, speaking on condition of anonymity because consultations have been private. The latest violence centered on Mazraat al-Qubair, a small farming community of 160 people, mostly Bedouins, in central Hama province.

Yemen: 23 al-Qaida militants killed in south

SANAA, Yemen Yemeni ofcials say at least 23 al-Qaida-linked militants have been killed in ghting in the countrys south.
