Tragedy prompts
limo legislation
Local lawmaker Sen. Jerry Hill

By Bill Silverfarb
State Sen. Jerry Hills legislative
packet this year contains three bills out
of 23 that aim to change how the
California Public Utilities Commission
does its job.
A limousine re and the death of ve
women last week on the San Mateo-
Hayward Bridge, however, has caused

the list that he will introduce in Sacramento today, he told
the Daily Journal yesterday.

Who has homework? was the question that greeted three
young children who approached the desk in the San Mateo
High School library on a recent evening.
All three did. There was a short debate over who had the
most before the children were paired with a teen volunteer
who could help tackle that homework. The library was actu-
ally quite busy considering school had been over for hours
and many of the people sitting at the tables were too young
to be enrolled at this particular campus. This is a normal
scene on Thursday evenings when families in the area are
encouraged to drop by for Family Literacy Night.

Bay Meadows
celebrates its final Friday
Approximately 14,000 patrons
shattered recent attendance records
Friday, May 9, 2008 at Bay Meadows
ooding the race track for one last
night of nostalgia before it closed its
regular season that weekend.
The cheer of the grand-
stand crowd drowned the
sound of the race
announcer and carried to
nearby neighborhoods.
Drivers required 45 minutes to reach
the race track from Highway 101, only
to be turned away at a packed parking
lot. Caltrain deposited droves of revel-
ers at the race tracks gates.
Bay Meadows opened in 1934.
Reports of the track closing had circu-
lated for at least a decade. It became an
almost certain fact that it would, in
fact, close after Bay Meadows sold
half its land to developers in the mid
1990s and moved the stables to the
infield. For the prior seven years,
developers worked with the city of San
Mateo to pass a massive mixed-use
development, replacing the 75-year-
old track.
May 9, 2008 marked the final
Fridays Alive where hundreds of
people gathered once a week for $1
grandstand entrance, $1 hot dogs and
$1 beer.
Schools dodge tax trouble
To rectify flawed ballot language
limiting the San Mateo Union High
School District, property
owners were to pay taxes
for an additional 15 years
to complete the goals of
Measure M after the Board
of Supervisors approved the
change the week of May 9, 2008.
Voters passed Measure M, a $298
million bond measure, in 2006 which
included language limiting the debt to
25-year bonds. Ordinarily, districts
have the option of utilizing up to 40-
year bonds. The voter-approved lan-
guage restricts the districts ability to
fund the promised projects, said
Superintendent David Miller.
Storm drain fee
survey, research OKd
Apotential fee was set to go before
property owners to raise $39 million
toward storm drains after the
Burlingame City Council approved a
community survey and study the week
of May 9, 2008.
On Monday of that week, the coun-
cil approved a $44,232 contract for
Willdan Financial Service to conduct
the rst phase of the plan of develop-
ing a storm drain fee including a
nancial engineering study and public
The fee was one of three options pre-
viously discussed by the City
Council in February 2008 as a
means for raising funds for storm
drain needs.

The psychiatric patient committed
to a state mental hospital after alleged-
ly raping a fellow ward at the San
Mateo Medical Center three years ago
should be returned to the facility rather
than tried for several felonies stem-
ming from the assault and a subsequent
attack on a correctional ofcer, accord-
ing to his defense attorney.
Defense attorney Paul DeMeester
said from the time Ronald Sunwo
OBrien, 30, returned from Napa State
Hospital, his client was better suited
for mental treatment and a conserva-
torship rather than trial and possible
incarceration. Yesterday, DeMeester
formally told the court his intention to
contest the conclusion and seek a jury
trial on his clients competency. A
hearing is set for June 12.
OBrien has been treated at Napa
State Hospital since
2011 when he was
last deemed mental-
ly unt for trial and
previously spent
other periods of
time there after past
He was hospital-
ized in the psychi-
atric unit of San
Mateo Medical Center when authori-
ties say sometime between 11:30 p.m.
March 29, 2010 and 7 a.m. March 30,
2010, he sexually assaulted a 23-year-
old female patient several times in her
room while keeping his hand over her
mouth. Minutes later, OBrien alleged-
ly returned with a piece of paper on
which hed drawn a pair of lips with a
nger over them to essentially tell her
to stay quiet. The following morning,
the woman reported the alleged assault
and police were contacted. OBrien
wanted the woman to be his girlfriend
and said he forcibly attacked her
because she resisted him, according to
The following month, OBrien was
also charged with assaulting a jail of-
cer who tried stopping him from mash-
ing food into his cell oor.
In August 2010, OBrien was com-
mitted to Napa State Hospital. He was
found competent the following year
but his mental health deteriorated
before he could stand trial and he was
returned to the hospital.

Obama, in Texas, presses
middle-class jobs agenda
By Darlene Superville
AUSTIN, Texas Offering a more upbeat view of the econ-
omy, President Barack Obama resurrected his jobs proposals
Thursday, advancing modest initiatives as he pushed for
action on more ambitious efforts that face resistance from
congressional Republicans. Were poised for progress, he
The president chose the bustling Texas capital as a back-
drop to refocus on higher wages, education and a manufactur-
ing-driven agenda that had been eclipsed by his struggles
over gun control and spending cuts and his push for an over-
haul of immigration laws.
You might not know this, because if you listen to all the
doom and gloom in Washington and politics, and watching
cable TVsometimes you might get kind of thinking nothing
is going right, Obama told students at a technology high
school. The truth is theres a lot of reasons for us to feel
optimistic about where were headed as a country.
Thanks to grit and determination of the American people,
we cleared away the rubble of the worst economic crisis in our
lifetime, he continued.
Still, Obama said that while housing markets are improv-
ing, corporate prots are skyrocketing and the energy and
auto industries are thriving, there remains a need to boost the
middle class.
The presidents visit to Austin is the rst in a series of eld
trips aimed at giving a high prole to the economy and jobs,
issues still clearly at the forefront of the publics concerns.
In addition to his appearance at Manor New Technology
High School, Obama also toured an Applied Materials Inc.

ware to the semiconductor, at panel display and solar power

The San Mateo County prosecutor
who has already tried William
Hamilton Ayres once for child
molestation and again on questions of
his mental competency is t to remain
on the case for his upcoming new
trial, a judge ruled yesterday.
Judge Beth Freeman denied defense
attorney Jonathan McDougalls
request to recuse prosecutor Melissa
McKowan who he has accused in court
documents of knowing a former
patient lied during his testimony and
was herself the subject of a State Bar
of California investigation after the
rst trial.
During the same hearing yesterday,
McDougall raised doubts again about
his 81-year-old clients competency
and Freeman took the motion under
submission for rul-
ing later.
The motions
heard Thursday took
roughly half an hour
and are the precursor
to jury selection
which begins
Monday in Ayres
retrial on allega-
tions he molested
several former male patients under the
guise of medical exams between 1988
and 1996. Other motions included an
unsuccessful defense move for a gag
order and a denial of McKowans
request that Freeman allow into evi-
dence items seized from Ayres medical
ofce which were kept from jurors in
the rst trial.
The District Attorneys Office,
which narrowly lost a conviction
against Ayres in 2009 when the jury
hung 11-1 on nine felonies, has
geared up for the second try by rehir-
ing a retired homicide prosecutor to
aid McKowan, particularly in jury
selection. After the original mistrial,
prosecutors planned to retry Ayres but
a separate jury also hung on questions
of his mental fitness. Prosecutors
agreed Ayres could be committed to
Napa State Hospital but, unexpectedly
last year, doctors at the facility con-
cluded he was faking or exaggerating
his condition and returned him to San
Mateo County.
Prior to his 2007 arrest, Ayres was
well-known as president of the
American Academy of Child and
Adolescent Psychiatry and received
juvenile court referrals up through
2004. Police began looking at him in
2002 after a former patient accused
him of molestation during the 1970s
when he was 13.
Judge wont recuse Ayres prosecutor

A49-year-old man already sentenced
to 13 years in prison for kidnapping
his wife at gunpoint while out on bail
for beating the woman with a hammer
at a South San Francisco motel two
years ago was sentenced Thursday to
another 36 years to life in prison.
Judge Jack Grandsaert denied
Raymond Bepland McCowans bid not
to be sentenced on his previous strikes
and ordered that the new term run con-
current with the 13 years he received in
San Francisco County.
A jury deliberated 70 minutes in
October before convicting him of
felony domestic violence, assault,
weapons use and
resisting arrest.
Although voters
r e v a m p e d
Californias Three
Strikes law the
month after
McCowans convic-
tion, he still quali-
fied for the stiffer
sentencing because
of his violent record
which includes prison time for assault
with a deadly weapon and a conviction

In the San Mateo County case, on
Feb. 8, 2010, McCowan and his wife
of 19 years were checking out of the La
Quinta Inn in South San Francisco
when two employees reported seeing
him hit her repeatedly with a hammer
or crowbar inside their car. Police
responding to the 911 call for help
stopped the couple and their young
son as they were driving out of the
parking lot and reported McCowan was
uncooperative and the woman denied
being assaulted. Police reported nd-
ing two knives and a hammer in the
drivers area of the car and several cir-
cular marks matching the hammer pat-
tern on the womans legs.
At the preliminary hearing, the
woman testied the injuries came from
slipping on ice the previous night.
McCowan posted bail in the case and
after, attacked his wife in San
Francisco, kidnapping her at gunpoint
and holding her hostage until arrested
by SWATofcers.
Assembly OKs transgender
student accommodations
SACRAMENTO Transgender stu-
dents would have the right to use public
school restrooms and participate on
sports teams that correspond with their
expressed genders under a bill approved
Thursday in the California Assembly.
State law already prevents schools
from discriminating against students
based on gender identity, but
Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San
Francisco, said AB1266 would give
transgender students the security and
safety they need at school.
It species that those students have
the right to participate in sex-segregat-
ed programs, activities and facilities
regardless of what gender is listed on
their school records.

State sues JPMorgan Chase over debt collection
SACRAMENTO Californias attorney general sued one
of the nations largest banks Thursday, alleging that
JPMorgan Chase & Co. used illegal tactics in its efforts to
collect debts from more than 100,000 credit card holders.
The lawsuit led in Los Angeles Superior Court says the
company led thousands of debt collection lawsuits each
month between 2008 and April 2011 using improper prac-
tices that shortcut procedures required by California law.
JPMorgan Chase spokesman Paul Hartwick said the com-
pany had no comment.
At nearly every stage of the collection process, defen-
dants cut corners in the name of speed, cost savings, and
their own convenience, providing only the thinnest
veneer of legitimacy to their lawsuits, the complaint
says. It alleges the company sued borrowers based on
patently insufcient evidence betting that borrowers
would lack the resources or legal sophistication to call
defendants bluff.
Attorney General Kamala Harris ofce said the compa-
nys methods included robo-signing legal documents, a
practice that was widely used in mortgage foreclosures
until it was outlawed. JPMorgan Chase is one of ve major
banks that settled with California and other states after the
housing market meltdown.
Lawmakers move to punish hoax 911 swatting

The practice is commonly known as swatting because
police often respond to what appears to be a dire emer-
gency by mobilizing their Special Weapons and Tactics
The trend started in other states but has been increasing-
ly used in the Los Angeles area to target celebrities in an
effort to draw publicity, said Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance.

intruders at the homes of Tom Cruise, Justin Bieber,

member sought in hit-and-run
LOS ANGELES A former member of the Billionaire
Boys Club who served jail time after being convicted of
killing his father is wanted by authorities for a San
Francisco hit-and-run accident that killed a pedestrian,
prosecutors said Thursday.
Reza Eslaminia, 52, is wanted on misdemeanor vehicular
manslaughter in the death of Edmund Ralph Capalla, 39,
said San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon.
Eslaminia was working as a cab driver for Luxor Cab

Covered California appears unique
among states attempting to establish
their own health insurance exchanges
under President Barack Obamas signa-
ture health law.
An Associated Press review of the 16
other states that have opted for state-
run marketplaces shows the California
agency was given powers that are the
most restrictive in what information is
required to be made public.
In Massachusetts, the state that
served as the model for Obamas health
overhaul, the Health Connector pro-
gram is specically covered by open-
records laws. The same is true in Idaho,
where its exchange was established as
a private, nonprot corporation, and
in New Mexico.
The Maryland Legislature subjected
its exchange to the states public
information act, but protected some

Republican leaders told President
Barack Obama Thursday that they will
refuse to nominate candidates to serve
on an advisory board that is to play a
role in holding down Medicare costs
under the new health care act.
House Speaker John Boehner, who
joined Senate Republican leader
Mitch McConnell in boycotting the
Independent Payment Advisory
Board, also said that the House next
week will vote again to repeal the
health care act. According to a
Democratic count, the House has tried
some 36 times to repeal or defund all

The 15-member advisory board,
known as IPAB, would have the power
to force payment cuts on insurers,
drug companies and other service
providers if Medicare costs rise
beyond certain levels.
The health care law explicitly for-
bids the board from rationing care,
shifting costs to seniors or cutting
their benets, but Republicans have
insisted that it will be a vehicle to
deny care to seniors. Former GOP vice

hailed what he described as a U.S.-

already be angling to further
strengthen the Assad regime two
years into a war that has killed
more than 70,000 people.
We have previously stated that

said Thursday they may seek the
death penalty against Ariel
Castro, the man accused of
imprisoning three women at his
home for a decade, as police
charged that he impregnated one
of his captives at least five
times and made her miscarry by
starving her and punching her in
the belly.
The allega-
tions were
contained in a
police report
that also said
another one of
the women,
Amanda Berry,
was forced to
give birth in a
plastic kiddie pool. Cuyahoga
County prosecutor Ti mot hy
McGinty said his office will
decide whether to bring aggravat-
ed murder charges punishable by
death in connection with the
pregnancies that were terminated
by force.
Capital punishment must be
reserved for those crimes that are
truly the worst examples of
human conduct, he said. The
reality is we still have brutal
criminals in our midst who have
no respect for the rule of law or
human life.
Castro, a 52-year-old former
school bus driver, is being held
on $8 million bail under a suicide
watch in jail, where he is charged
with rape and kidnapping.
McGinty said Castro will be
charged for every act of sexual
violence, assault and other
crimes committed against the
women, suggesting the counts
could number in the hundreds, if
not thousands.

Letters to the editor
The Press-Enterprise
tudents access to high-demand
classes should not depend on
whether they can pay extra for the
privilege. The Legislature should reject a
bill that would set up a two-tier fee system
for some community college classes. State
and education ofcials should nd a better
solution to the space shortage in must-
have classes than letting those with more
nancial resources skip to the head of the
AB 955, by Assemblyman Das Williams,
D-Santa Barbara, would let community col-
leges offer in-demand courses during the
winter and summer breaks at a higher cost
to students. Community college students
normally pay $46 per course unit, but the
new extension classes would charge
$200 a unit, or about $600 for a three-cred-
it course. Over the past month, two
Assembly committees have given their
approval to the bill.
The bill highlights a legitimate public
concern: community college students who
struggle to enroll in the classes they need
in order to graduate or transfer to a four-
year college. Community colleges slashed
course offerings as a way to implement
budgetary restraint during the economic
downturn. The Public Policy Institute of
California reported in March that commu-
nity colleges dropped about 86,000 sec-
tions a 21 percent reduction between
2007-08 and 2011-12. Students sometimes
have to wait months or years to get into
the courses they need, which adds to the
length and cost of their college careers.
But the Legislature should scuttle any
idea of making access to core classes
dependent on students capacity to pay.
Legislators would be on stronger ground
advocating higher fees for specialized
courses, such as lab courses, that cost more
to provide, and applying that fee to all stu-
dents who take the class.
Community colleges have a taxpayer-
supported mission to provide broad access
to higher education for all Californians.
Installing a system that gives an extra
advantage to those with ready money con-
tradicts that public mandate. The states
Community Colleges Chancellor Brice
Harris warned in March that such differen-
tial fee proposals could undermine a sys-
tem that has been a gateway to a better life
for all Californians regardless of their
AB 955 proposes to help out those from
lower-income families by setting aside
one-third of the fees from the high-cost
courses to help provide nancial aid to
low-income students. That approach does
not erase the inequity, but rather com-
pounds it, as more afuent students pay the
way for some of their classmates.
The state has better alternatives avail-
able. Colleges should explore the use of
online education as a cost-effective way to
ease the bottleneck for high-demand cours-
es. Californias community college fees are
also the lowest in the nation. Legislators
could increase fees to provide more money
to add course sections, and still keep com-
munity college class costs well below the
level AB 955 proposes.
Building a fast-track education for those
with money would set the wrong priorities
for community colleges. The states goal
should be ensuring access to junior-college
education for all Californians who want it,
not providing an edge to students with a
bigger bankroll.
Misguided PG&E fines
I am disappointed in your online poll this
Wednesday regarding Pacic Gas and
Electrics $2.25 billion ne proposed by
the California Public Utilities Commission
None of your choices seem to recognize
that PG&E is a public utility and ning it
enormous amounts does nothing to improve
public safety. As a utility, it earns a guaran-
teed prot for its shareholders. Because of
this special status, most shareholders are
conservative investors (elders, widows,
orphans, etc.) with no direct role in manag-
ing the company. Insisting that sharehold-
ers bear the burden is simply misguided and
childishly vindictive. PG&E should be
directed to improve the safety of its gas
lines, as it is currently doing, and attempts
to punish the company or its shareholders is
not only non-productive but may even dam-
age PG&Es ability to fund necessary
improvements. Viewing corporations as
bottomless pits of money is a fantasy, that
has become accepted as fact too often in
PG&E should not be ned, where nes
would go to the general fund to be wasted by
the elite political class in Sacramento. All
PG&E expenditures should be applied toward
operating a safe and secure utility system.

San Mateo Ice Center
In regards to the article Ice Center of
San Mateo fans cool to impending clo-
sure, in the May 7 edition of the Daily
Journal, I am curious as to why the commu-
nity of San Mateo, and even those who do
not reside in San Mateo, are not more vocal
about the impending closure of this ice
Even if you dont ice skate, you can
appreciate what a unique part it is of a city
and its community. Its a destination for
kids, for disabled students, for adults,
young and old. Ice rinks are where unique
dreams are made, where friends are made,
where families meet, a safe place for
teenagers to hang out, where people laugh,
sweat and celebrate together. Birthday par-
ties, broomball games, hockey, gure skat-
ing, ice shows take place at them.
Why anyone would want to tear down a
perfectly good ice rink after hearing all the
supporters beg, and how anyone could
ignore pleading from childrens own voices
is purely greedy and mean. Isnt our com-
munity better than another box store?
Dont our children deserve better? We could
show them that they matter way more than
box stores or meaningless replacements
for their ice rink. Keep the rink open for
everyone who loves it so much, and has for
so many years.

Hoarding is not anti-social
Jorg Aadahl (Letter, Anti-social hoard-
ing? from the May 8 edition of the Daily
Journal) is confused about the nature of
money and the consequences of hoarding
i t .
Money is different from real goods and
services. When people, corporations or
banks choose to hold more money the
effect is lower prices, other things being
equal. Conversely, if they begin to spend
their hoards the effect is higher prices. If
injections of money were the cure for our
economic doldrums, the Feds vast expan-
sion of the base money supply over the
last few years should have done the trick.
Instead weve been having a very sluggish
recovery and nagging unemployment. I
believe the primary reason for those dol-
drums is regime uncertainty what will be
the real impact of Obamacare next year;
what will Dodd/Frank do to business when
it takes effect; what new taxes will be foist-
ed on the most highly productive people?
Together with credit contraction, those
effects have more than canceled out the
otherwise inationary effects of Fed expan-
One reason why U.S. corporations have
so much cash parked overseas is our convo-
luted tax system. The United States is the
only major country which taxes both the
domestic and foreign income of corpora-
tions. And incidentally, corporations dont
really pay taxes; people do sharehold-
ers, employees, customers.
Finally, what about commercial banks,
which hold well over a trillion in excess
reserves? They are not lending this money
primarily because they dont see good loan
prospects and incidentally because the Fed
now pays interest on excess reserves.

Other voices
The new
ellphones are ubiquitous, and the
topic of their use in public is by
no means new. But when exactly
did we get to be so rude about them?
The other day I was waiting in line for a
sandwich and the gentlemen in front of me
was in the middle of paying when he start-
ed checking his email. So the man behind
the counter had to wait for him to nish
reading his
email before he
could hand him
his receipt. I get
the need to max-
imize downtime.
The line is long,
you dont want
to get behind at
work, why not
bang out a cou-
ple of replies
before you eat?
But there should
be some mod-
icum of respect
for others. Why get in the way of others
commerce so you can stay in touch?
Then there are groups of diners on their
smartphones. I assume people get together
for dinner to break bread and catch up, so
why take up that time checking in with
other people or other things at the table? If
that person you are connecting with on the
phone is so interesting, why not make a
dinner date with them?
There are also the groups of people hang-
ing out with each other gazing into their
glowing screen. If you are hanging out
with people, shouldnt you want to talk to
But the most irritating thing is people
walking down the street while gazing at
their screen. They become like large spas-
tic toddlers, forcing others out of their way
and bumping into things. If you are on a
sidewalk, you are generally safe from most
hazards, but you should also pay attention
to others so you dont walk straight into
them with a half-hearted and mumbling
sorry. There is also a tendency for people
to walk into the street so immersed in
whatever is on their screen that drivers
with the right-of-way must stop for them.
It used to be that the complaint with cell-
phones was that people were talking on
them and it was loud and irritating to oth-
ers. But people dont seem to talk on their
cellphones much any more, its now a
watching thing, or a thumb movement
thing. Its more of a distracted zombie walk
with the head down and feet shufing. So
its quieter now, but there are more moving
obstacles as people in real life have their
brain sucked into online life in public.
Snap out of it! The real world can be fair-
ly interesting too.
The death of ve women in the Saturday
night limousine re is a horric tragedy,
plain and simple.
Within seconds, a deadly re destroyed
the back of the limousine on the San
Mateo-Hayward Bridge, trapping its occu-
pants. Four were able to escape but ve
perished almost immediately. Determining
the origin of the re is important and sev-
eral agencies are investigating, but it is
likely mechanical. Ive seen an electrical
re torch an entire car in a ash.
The California Public Utilities
Commission is considering whether to ne
the limo company for misrepresenting the
seating capacity since it was to have eight
or fewer passengers but held nine. Fines
would be in the thousands. It is unlikely
that the extra passenger was the cause.
Cant we just call this a tragedy and stop
looking for someone to blame?

NEW YORK The stock market
pulled back from record levels
Thursday as investors became harder to
Even a decline in the number of
Americans applying for unemploy-

prices a boost. Markets drifted lower
in early trading, moved between gains
and losses in the afternoon, then ended
slightly lower. The Standard & Poors
500 index had its rst loss since May
Unemployment claims dropped to a
five-year low last week, the Labor
department reported early Thursday.
That signals fewer layoffs and possi-
bly more hiring.
While the report failed to boost
stocks, it did give the dollar a lift. The
U.S. currency climbed against most
major currencies and traded above 100
yen for the rst time in more than four
years. The Japanese currency has
weakened dramatically this year due to

employers has been one of the key fac-
tors that pushed stocks up to record

six straight months of gains. The S&P
500 index also closed at a record high
The bar for economic news and cor-
porate earnings has risen as stock
prices have marched higher, said JJ
Kinahan, chief derivative strategist at
TD Ameritrade. You have to beat by a
lot to really move the market higher,
Kinahan said.
Rising corporate earnings, another
key support for the stock market, were
also in focus on Thursday.
Tesla Motors soared $13.61, or 24
percent, to $69.40, after the electric
car maker posted its rst quarterly net
prot since it was founded a decade
Green Mountain Coffee Roasters
surged $16.56, or 27.8 percent, to
$76.04 after the company reported late
Wednesday that its net income rose 42
percent. It also raised its earnings
forecast for the full year.
Monster Beverage, the maker of
energy drinks, fell $2.96, or 5 per-
cent, to $54.01, after it reported net
income that fell short of analysts esti-
mates. The companys prots fell 17
percent, despite stronger sales,
because of unfavorable currency rates,
legal expenses and costs tied to distri-
bution agreements.
Almost 90 percent of the companies

The resurgent U.S. housing market
has sent builders calling again for
Richard Vap, who owns a drywall
installation company. Vap would
love to help if he could hire
enough qualified people.
There is a shortage of manpower,
says Vap, owner of South Valley
Drywall in Littleton, Colo. Were
probably only hiring about 75 or 80
percent of what we actually need.
U.S. builders and the subcontrac-
tors they depend on are struggling to
hire fast enough to meet rising
demand for new homes. Builders
would be starting work on more
homes and contributing more to
the economy if they could fill
more job openings.
In the meantime, workers in the
right locations with the right skills
are commanding higher pay.
The shortage of labor ranges across
occupations from construction
superintendents and purchasing
agents to painters, cabinet makers
and drywall installers. The National
Association of Home Builders says
its members have complained of too
few framers, roofers, plumbers and
carpenters. The shortage is most
acute in areas where demand for new
homes has recovered fastest, notably
in Arizona, California, Texas,
Colorado and Florida.
The problem results largely from an
exodus of workers from the industry
after the housing bubble burst.
Experienced construction workers
lost jobs. And many found new work
in commercial building or in
booming and sometimes higher-pay-
ing industries like mining and natural
gas drilling and arent eager to
come back.
Hispanic immigrants, largely from
Mexico, who had filled jobs during
the boom were among those who left
the industry and, in some cases, the
United States.
Dave Erickson, president of
Greyhawk Homes in Columbus, Ga.,
lost an employee who took a job this
year in Texas. The former employee
is now installing fiber-optic cable
and earning 30 percent more than he
did as a construction supervisor.
Home building is surging, but job growth isnt
Oil industry: BLM
prevents job creation in California
SAN FRANCISCO Oil industry associations say feder-
al land managers are blocking new energy development by
postponing all oil and gas lease auctions in California
until October.
John Felmy, the chief economist for the American
Petroleum Institute, says the U.S. Bureau of Land
Managements recent announcement that it will put off
leasing public lands in the state is preventing job creation.
BLM says the decision was forced by budget problems,
and the toll of environmental litigation over parcels near
the Monterey Shale, one of the nations largest deposits of
shale oil. BLMs state director Jim Kenna says the agency
will concentrate on enforcement of existing leases.
The decision also came after a federal judge ruled last
month that BLM violated a key environmental law when it
auctioned certain drilling rights before performing a
sweeping environmental review.

Somewhere between the conversations
about there being no mercy rule in the West

Serra loading the bases with no outs in the
bottom of the fth while trailing by 10 to
Bellarmine, the dare too dream was in the air
that the Padres may have had another great
comeback story left to write.
They didnt .
Two big innings doomed Serra, as

away with the WCAL Tournament champi-
onship last night at Schott Stadium. With
the win, Bellarmine earns co-championship
honors in the WCAL along with Serra and
St. Francis.
The Bells batted around twice in the game,
scoring six runs in the second and ve more
in the fourth. In addition to banging out 11
hits, Bellarmine drew nine walks through-
We just struggled in the strike zone,
Serra manager Craig Gianinno said.
Bellarmine capitalized and kept pressure
on. Tip your hat to Bellarmine. We just did-
nt get it done tonight. But that does not
diminish the success of this team. This is a
great baseball team.
Serra (24-6) suffered persistent bouts of
wildness from the get-go. In the first,
Bellarmine pushed its rst run across thanks
to two wild pitches from Padres starter Sean
Watkins. Leadoff hitter Joey Persons
reached on a high chopper off the glove of
third baseman Christian Conci that went for
a single. Persons then advanced to second
and third on a pair of pitches in the dirt,
before Jack Thoreson drove him home with

OAKLAND The confident aura the
Golden State Warriors are giving off right
now might be the only thing brighter than
those yellow shirts every home fan is
expected to be wearing again for Game 3
against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday
night at ear-piercing Oracle Arena.
Maybe for good reason, too.
The Warriors have outshot, outrebounded
and outhustled the Spurs through the rst
two games of their Western Conference
seminal. And if not for an unprecedented
collapse in Game 1, Golden State would be
returning to the Bay Area with a 2-0 lead in
the best-of-seven series instead of being
Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and the
hot-shooting Warriors have shown no
signs of slowing down in the playoffs. The
dynamic backcourt duo has left the second-
seeded Spurs searching for answers. And
while theres still a long way to go in the
series, sixth-seeded Golden State is no long
acting like an underdog.
Were in the drivers seat right now. We
control our own destiny. I feel like this is
our time, Thompson
said during a light
shootaround at the
teams downtown
Oakland headquarters
Thursday. We put in so
much work and its pay-
ing off. And its just
beginning. Weve got to
stay humble.
At the moment,
theyve sure humbled San Antonio.
The Warriors have held the lead for 95 of
106 minutes, with most of the Spurs slim
advantages coming in the two overtimes in
Game 1, when San Antonio rallied from 16
points down in the nal four minutes of reg-
ulation to a stunning victory. Golden State
has outrebounded the Spurs 105 to 93, out-
shot them 48.3 percent to 41.7 percent and
outworked and perhaps outcoached
San Antonio in almost every way imagina-
We cant blame it on just luck, Spurs
guard Manu Ginobili said. They did a great
job, and we did a really poor job. Weve got
to give them credit. They played much bet-
ter than us, and miracles dont happen that
often. We didnt deserve Game 1, either.
Weve got to do better over there, because
playing like this, we dont have a chance.
San Antonios championship pedigree is
about to really be tested.
As good as Golden State looked in San
Antonio, it has been far better at home all

Warriors went 3-0 at home in the rst round
against Denver, with Curry seemingly con-
trolling the standing-room only crowds on
his ngertips and feeding off fans as

SAN JOSE The San Jose Sharks will
begin the second round of the playoffs
somewhat short-handed after losing forward
Adam Burish to an undisclosed upper-body
Burish got hurt during the teams 4-3
overtime win over the Vancouver Canucks
on Tuesday night that wrapped up the rst
playoff sweep in franchise history. Burish
did not return to that game after being
slashed by Vancouvers Alexander Edler late
in the second period. Burishs right hand
was wrapped in the dressing room after the
Despite being a fourth-line player who
had just one goal and two assists, Burish
made key contributions as one of the teams
more physical players and as a reliable
penalty killer. He played the third most
minutes of any San Jose forward killing
penalties in the regular season.
Its a tough loss, defenseman Dan Boyle
said. Hes one of those guys who doesnt
necessarily end up on the score sheet but
having played against him he gets under
other guys skin. He certainly got under
mine when he was in Chicago. You kind of
need that going forward. When the top guys
are thinking about certain players versus
what they have to do on the ice, thats a
bonus for us.
Burish also brings a strong locker room
presence based in part on his experience
from winning the Stanley Cup with the
Blackhawks in 2010. Coach Todd McLellan
expects Burish to maintain that role even as
he is sidelined by the injury.
Were denitely going to miss him out
there but I think hes a type of player that he
will make sure that hes around and talk to
players and keeping everybody focused in
the right direction, forward Patrick Marleau
said. It will be great to have that part still.
But on the ice being a penalty killer, faceoff
guy. Its going to be an opportunity for
other guys to step up and try to ll that
The injury news was better on other fronts
for the Sharks as forward Marty Havlat took
part in a light skate for the rst time since
leaving Game 1 of the Vancouver series with
an injury.
Havlat said he has no timetable for a pos-
sible return but McLellan was encouraged by
the progress he has made. The injury to
Burish opens up a forward spot, putting
more importance on Havlats possible
This is the time that we dream of, the
playoffs, he said. The situation is what it
is. Im just trying to get back as soon as
Defenseman Jason Demers also skated as
he tries to return from a lower-body injury
that has caused him to miss the nal four
games of the regular season and all four
playoff games.
Scott Hannan, acquired at the trade dead-
line from Nashville, has lled in admirably
in the playoffs, forming a physical defen-
sive pairing with Brad Stuart.
With the second round not starting until
next week, Havlat and Demers have time to
recover and possibly make it back into the
lineup. The time off is also welcome for
players who accumulated plenty of bumps
and bruises during the regular season and
rst-round matchup with the Canucks.
Only a handful of players even skated
Thursday as McLellan wanted to give his
regulars a couple of days to clear their minds
before turning their focus to the next round.
The full team will plan to practice the next
three days, by which time the Sharks could
know their opponent and schedule for the
second round.
The coaches Im sure are going to do a
great job, Hannan said. We as players got
to come in and bring it in practice. You got
to keep your game at the highest level and
treat it that way in practice when youre out
there. Just play hard.
McLellan has assigned one coach to pre-
pare for each of the potential second-round
opponents: Chicago, St. Louis, Los
Angeles and Detroit. The players wont start
looking at video until that is determined.
The Sharks had a similar layoff three years
ago when they had a seven-day break
between beating Detroit in ve games in the
second round and the start of the conference
nals against Chicago. San Jose was swept
in that series.
We would whine if we only had one day,
McLellan said. Now when we have ve,
people are looking for reasons for why it
might not work. Its our job to make it
work. Its our job to get prepared and be
ready to play. The only answer to that ques-
tion will be after Game 1, 2 or 3.
Sharks resting, will start
next round short-handed

Indians way. Theres no dispute or debate
about that.

vincing blowout, only hours after they won

Major League Baseball acknowledged the
umpires made an improper call, but execu-
tive vice president Joe Torre said the judg-
ment decision is nal.
There was no argument on Thursday as the
Indians put a resounding thumping on the
As and won for the 10th time in 11 games.
Our starting pitching is giving us a
chance to win, Indians manager Terry
Francona said. We have a very good
bullpen. Were playing well defensively. A
lot of guys are contributing offensively.
Thats a good way to play baseball.
Kipnis hit a two-run homer in the rst
inning off Bartolo Colon (3-2) for the
Indians, who improved to 13-4 since April
20. They got more good news after the game
when center elder Michael Bourn was acti-
vated from the 15-day disabled list after
missing nearly one month with a cut nger.
Bourn will be ready for a three-game series
against rst-place Detroit starting Friday.
Kazmir (2-1), who at this time last year
wasnt even pitching professionally,
allowed one run and ve hits. The left-han-
der has won consecutive starts for the rst
time since 2010.
Im not thinking about last year or what
happened before that, Kazmir said. Im
looking ahead. Im throwing the ball well
right now. Im feeling better every time
Josh Donaldson homered for the As, who
fell to .500 for the rst time since April 4
when they were 2-2. Oakland is just 6-14
after starting 12-4.
Theyre playing great and cant do any-
thing wrong and were struggling, As man-
ager Bob Melvin said. Thats what hap-
pens. What happened last night shouldnt
affect today. They just beat us.
The Indians were already leading by six
runs when MLB released a statement indicat-
ing umpire Angel Hernandez and his crew
had erred Wednesday night. After watching a
video replay, they failed to reverse a call and
gave Rosales a double instead of a homer.
SAN FRANCISCO Brian McCann hit a
two-run homer and an RBI single in his third
game this season after coming off the dis-
abled list, and the Atlanta Braves beat the
San Francisco Giants 6-3 on Thursday night
to begin a four-game series between NLdivi-
sion leaders.
Freddie Freeman and B.J. Upton both
drove in a run to help back Julio Teheran (2-
0), who pitched seven efcient innings in
his 10th career start after his last scheduled
outing was rained out Saturday against the
Mets. Craig Kimbrel earned his 100th career
save, becoming the second-youngest pitch-
er to do so.
Buster Posey hit a two-run homer and an
RBI single, but the Giants were done in by
the fth inning when the Braves batted
The Giants (20-15) fell into a rst-place
tie in the NL West with Arizona.
Posey put the Giants ahead with a drive
into the stands in left-center on a 3-2 pitch
from Teheran in the third. The reigning NL
MVP and batting champion had a run-scor-
ing single in the rst.
But the Braves jumped on Ryan
Vogelsong (1-3) in the fth.
Jordan Schafer led off with a triple and
scored the tying run on Andrelton Simmons
RBI groundout moments later. Justin Upton
followed with a triple of his own, and
Freemans single gave Atlanta a 4-3 lead.
Vogelsong walked Dan Uggla and his
night was done with one out in the fth.
Jose Mijares relieved and the Braves added a
run on McCanns RBI ineld single.
Teheran received all the run support he
needed. Eric OFlaherty pitched a scoreless
eighth before Kimbrel bounced back from a
blown save Tuesday at Cincinnati for his
11th save in 14 chances.

The next game at Oracle Arena a rau-
cous venue even when the Warriors were ter-
rible might be the franchises biggest
game in Oakland since 1991, when Golden
State returned home with its second-round
series against the Lakers tied at a game
apiece only to lose three straight and be
eliminated in Game 5 in Los Angeles.
In the playoffs for only the second time in
19 years, excitement in the basketball-
starved Bay Area is at a fever pitch. The
Warriors can unite fans with conicting
allegiances in a way almost no other team
can in the sports saturated market.
Buses in San Francisco and Oakland have
electronic banners that read: Go Warriors.
San Franciscos iconic Coit Tower has been
lit with blue-and-gold lights, and fans on
both sides of the bay can be seen wearing
those yellow We Are Warriors shirts given
out at home playoff games.
With a sea of support behind them, all the
Warriors need to do is win their home games
to advance to the conference nals for the
rst time since the 1975-76 season.
The skys the limit for us right now,
said Thompson, who had a career-high 34
points and 14 rebounds in Golden States
100-91 win Wednesday night, even joking
at practice that he felt like Steph Curry out
there shooting 8 of 9 from 3-point range.
Our condence is at an all-time high,
Thompson added. Weve shown we can
beat this team, and we just have to stay hum-
ble about it and keep working hard because
its a long series.
Golden State already has overcome two
major hurdles.
The Warriors rebounded from what could
have been a devastating Game 1 collapse.
And they exercised the demons, as Curry
put it, by winning in San Antonio for the
first time since Feb. 14, 1997 four
months before the Spurs drafted Tim Duncan
out of Wake Forest and began a run that
includes four NBAtitles.
Even Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, a two-
time NBACoach of the Year, has marveled at
what his veteran-laden team is up against.
During one television timeout captured on
the TNT broadcast in Game 2, he told his
team in the huddle: They got skill. They
got talent. Weve got to be on them.
They shot the heck out of it, Popovich
said at the airport before his Spurs boarded a
ight to the Bay Area on Thursday. Thats
the difference.
Continued from page 11
walks and hit a batsman, as the Bells sent
11 batters to the plate in the inning. Andrew
Mallon started the rally by reaching on an
error on a slow infield chopper. Austin
Hateld drove a triple to deep left to score
Mallon. James Gaffey followed with a sin-
gle to plate Hateld. After Jack Calomeni
hit into a double play, six straight Bells
reached base, with walks to Persons, Corby
Punian and Jake Whipple, before Thoreson
cashed in with a two-RBI single. Scotty
Jarvis was then hit by a pitch, knocking
Watkins from the game.
But Padres reliever Jordan Jauregui could-
nt settle things down, as the senior walked
Mallon to force home Whipple, then threw
a wild pitch to plate Thoreson, giving
Bellarmine a 7-0 lead.
When our pitchers got behind they just

Michael Tinsley said. And then its hard to
bring that back. Looking back, I should
have talked to them about getting their con-
fidence up, and (letting them know) I
believe in them.
In the top of the fourth, Bellarmine
again batted around, sending 10 batters to
the plate amid a five-run inning. Whipple,
Thoreson and Jarvis loaded the bases with
three straight singles. Jauregui departed
for senior right-hander Paul Murray, who
walked in three runs with free passes to
Hatfield, Calomeni and Persons, before
getting snake bit by an infield single a
slow roller to deep shortstop off the bat of
Punian that not only plated Hatfield, but
on the ensuing throw to first base
Calomeni stormed all the way around from
second to score.
In the bottom of the frame, Serra got on
the board. Jordan Paroubeck led off with a
walk. Murray singled advancing Paroubeck
to third, before he scored on an RBI elders
choice off the bat of Conci. With two outs,
John Murray singled to right to plate
Conci, closing out the nights scoring.
Bellarmine starting pitcher Sam Fontaine
kept his undefeated season intact, earning
the win with four-plus innings to up his
record to 8-0. Watkins took the loss for
Serra. His record falls to 3-2. Bells pitch-
ing entered into play last night with a 1.30
ERAas a staff this season. They allowed just
three runs combined to St. Ignatius, St.
Francis and Serra throughout the WCAL
All the guys weve run out there have
done an outstanding job, Bellarmine man-
ager Mike Rodriguez said. They pounded
the zone. They threw strikes with multiple
pitches. And when you can do that, even the
best hitters have a hard time.
Serra looked to amass the comeback of
comebacks in the fth, loading the bases
with no outs. But Murray struck out after a
nine-pitch at bat, before Conci hit into an
inning ending double play.
Our kids do not give up, and I think its a
testament to their belief in each other, and
belief in themselves, Gianinno said.

Sure the phrase comeback kids gets
bandied around in baseball circles, but
Cabrillo College may be cornering the mar-
ket on the popular label this season.
Cabrillo advanced to the California
Community College Baseball Super
Regional Playoffs by downing College of
San Mateo last weekend in a three-game
Regional Playoff series. The Seahawks had
their backs against the wall throughout,
rst after dropping Game 1, then by quickly
falling behind in the rst inning of the deci-
sive Game 3.
Thats when Cabrillo manager Bob Kittle
called upon former Half Moon Bay pitcher
Julian Garcia, and the sophomore responded
with the game of his life. The right-hander
delivered a marathon relief outing of 7 1/3
innings his longest pitching appearance
ever to earn the win in Cabrillos 6-5
come-from-behind victory.
No doubt, this game was the best game
Ive ever pitched, Garcia said. I was very
excited for the coaches to keep me in there
to get through those innings. And to be
honest, those innings were kind of a blur
because of the adrenaline rush I had going
through my body. But nevertheless, a very
fun game.
Coming from behind is something
Cabrillo has done all season though. The
Seahawks recorded seven comeback wins in
the regular season. And after starting the
year with a lowly 5-15 record, they won 13
of their last 16 regular-season games to eek
into the playoffs with the requisite .500
overall record of 18-18.
Weve had to ght for our lives the whole
season now, Kittle said.
It was actually Cabrillos lone regular-
season matchup with CSM that turned
around the teams fortunes. The Seahawks
were suffering an abysmal stretch in which
theyd lost 13 of 14, including six straight
in Coast Conference play.
It was terrible, Garcia said. Before we
played San Mateo for the rst time in the
regular season I was very down on our
team, and our condence was very down. But
we played San Mateo and we beat them, and
that was the spark that we needed to get
With the win over the Bulldogs on March
21, the Seahawks started a streak of seven
straight wins. And with a conference record
of 14-10, they ultimately tied Monterey
Peninsula for the co-Coast Pacific
Conference title.
Garcia has been a workhorse out of the
bullpen this season, appearing in 21 games
to tie for seventh in the state along with fel-
low Cabrillo sophomore Mike Murano.
However, Garcia shouldered more than twice
the workload of his counterpart, totaling 59
innings pitched, tabbing a 3-1 record with a
2.29 ERA. For his efforts, Garcia was one of
six Seahawks named to the All-Coast Pacic
Conference team.
Hes probably the most valuable player
for us as far as pitchers go because he can
fulll so many roles, Kittle said.
Used predominantly as a reliever since
joining the collegiate ranks, Garcia proved
an exceptional starting pitcher in three
years at Half Moon Bay. He twice paced the
Cougars pitching staff with seven wins,
once as a sophomore and again as a senior.
Both times he helped Half Moon Bay to the
Central Coast Section playoffs, though the
nal outing of his high-school career was
met with disappointment as he got ham-
mered by Santa Cruz to take the loss in the
Division-III seminal.
Garcias win last weekend over CSM was
his first playoff appearance since high
school. He almost got into a playoff game

all posing different challenges for CSM, at
the Super Regionals beginning on Friday
May 10 at the College of San Mateo. CSM
welcomes San Joaquin Delta, West Valley
and Cabrillo colleges in a double-elimina-
tion tournament.
First, the Bulldogs will do battle against
San Joaquin Delta, a team that nished fth
in the Big 8 conference tied with the
aforementioned Feather River.
On paper, Delta looks to pose little threat
to CSM. But in this case, the statistics are
deceiving. Of the three other teams playing
in the Super Regional, San Joaquin in the
only one to boast a win over CSM this sea-
son. That was back on Feb. 12 when the
Bulldogs surrendered runs in the bottom of
the sixth and seventh, and fell 3-2. CSM
left nine runners on base in that game and
gave up a pair of unearned runs which wound
up being the difference.
Since then, the two teams have gone in
separate directions during conference play.
San Joaquin hit just .285 with a .362 on-
base percentage both numbers were good
for sixth in the Big 8.
Offensively, Deltas punch lies in three
players: Katie Bentz, Brianne Moreno and
Brittany Ward combined they hit 21 of
San Joaquins 27 home runs and were the
only three with considerable playing time
to hit over .300.
Ward is the most dangerous of the trio.
She hit .317 with 10 home runs and drove in
30. Bentz led Delta with a .375 average and
Moreno was second at .367.
In the circle, CSM will most likely have
to contend with Tatiana Beilstein, who
appeared in 31 games for Delta, going 16-7
in the process with a .262 earned run aver-
age. She struck out 88 and walked 34. Most
noticeably for Delta was its defense in
2013. San Joaquin committed 84 errors
hence, 28 of the runs scored by the opposi-
tion were unearned.
Still, despite the impressive numbers,
Delta is coming off a series win over Coast
Conference South runner-up Hartnell
College. For CSM, the key will be timely
hitting they can ill-afford to leave anoth-
er nine runners stranded against a team they
should handle.
in Coast Conference South)
Over in Fridays other game, West Valley
and Cabrillo will tangle in a Coast
Conference South matchup.
Like San Joaquin Delta, West Valley is
one of those teams that is dangerous despite
its fth place nish in conference play. The
Vikings are fresh off an impressive and eye-
popping two-game sweep of Bay Valley
Conference champion Solano College a
team that went 21-3 in league play.
Howd West Valley do it? Well, the num-
bers suggest Samantha Ridgway had some-
thing to do with it. Ridgway is slugging a
whopping .763 on the year with 14 home
runs and 46 runs batted in. Shes also stolen
10 bases for the Vikings. As a team, West
Valley is hitting a respectable .327 with a
.413 on-base percentage. They also have
great speed (68 steals, second in the South)
and good plate discipline (134 walks, sec-
ond in the South). Other hitters to keep your
eye on are Rose Marston (.458 average,
.557 on-base), Lydia North (.433, 21
steals, 31 RBIs) and Vinchenza DiBenedetto
(.382, seven home runs, 47 RBIs).
In the circle, CSM might get to see Ellie
Kristensen, whos pitched in 174 innings
for West Valley, going 23-6 on the season
with a 2.74 ERA.
Putting the ball in play will be key for
CSM it would appear the left side of West
Valleys ineld is susceptible to mistakes.
Of the 66 errors committed by the Vikings,
28 have come from shortstop or third base.
In their only matchup this season, CSM
defeated West Valley 11-2. The Bulldogs
pounded out 16 hits including two bombs.
CABRILLO COLLEGE (32-8, rst in
Coast Conference South)
If paper holds on Friday, then Saturday
would bring a champion versus champion
Cabrillo was tested over and over in the
Coast Conference South and came out on
top. Of the three Super Regional oppo-
nents, theyve been the most consistent and
pose the biggest challenge.
Cabrillos offense is formidable the
Seahawks led the conference with a .379
batting average and a .466 on-base percent-
age. Their 335 runs scored were good for
second. Cabrillo is fresh off a three-game
stretch of softball when they scored 43 runs
23 in their regional matchup.
The largest part of that offensive success
is due to the conferences most dangerous
hitter Sierra Clark. Clark is hitting .553
with an insane .1552 OPS. Shes got 28
extra-base hits to her name to go with 66
RBIs and 22 walks.
Clark isnt alone though CSM will
have to watch out for Annalise Bryant
(.443/.503/.511, 53 runs scored, 10 steals),
Angela Martin (.441/.469/.625, 19 extra-
base hits, 51 RBIs) and Sherri Morioka
(.402, 16 steals).
Like CSM, the Seahawks have a solid 1-2
punch in the circle. Clark leads the way with
a 1.99 ERAand a 19-4 record. But Shannon
Egan is no slouch. Her ERA sits at 2.49.
Shes 10-2 on the year with 55 strikeouts.
On March 29, the Bulldogs traveled to
Cabrillo and defeated the Seahawks 8-0.
Shine said of his team. They know how to
peak at the right times. Theyre looking
forward to playing Serra. Its nice that
theyve (Serra) had a great season. I think
were going to have a fun match. Were
looking forward to it.
Charles though, relayed a message most
teams need to have against a squad like
They have nothing to lose, Charles said
of his Padres. All we have to do is have that
amnesia. Go after that next point. Have a
good time. Play the ball. Hit the ball. And
everything else will care of itself.
Theyre not intimidated by them. They
learned that lesson from when they faced
Bellarmine. They felt like they had nothing
to fear when they faced Bellarmine and they
have nothing to fear against Menlo.
Anything can happen.
Whats been happening is a total domina-
tion by the Knights. In three 2013 CCS
matchups, Menlo has dropped ve matches
total. Their last victory was a 17-1 shelling
of Bellarmine College Prep a team Serra
beat twice this season.
They respect everyone they play, Shine
said of Menlos key to success this season.
They go about it the right way. They dont
take anything for granted and they enjoy
competing. They enjoy the team atmos-
phere and they like each other. Its all about
staying in the moment and giving it their
best. It really doesnt matter what the score
is, theyre going to it their all all the time.
Serra is going to need A-plus efforts by all
six of its teams come Friday at the Courtside
Club in Los Gatos. The rst tennis ball gets
served up at 12:30 p.m.
Playing well right now for the Padres is
Brendon and Gordon Barrows. The doubles
team has come on strong as of late, accord-
ing to Charles.
Theyre focused. Theyre attached at the
hip. Theyre moving well and they have
great concentration. Id put them up there
with my No. 1s. Theyre ready to go, he
Also for Serra, the senior leadership of
Sean Talmadge will be huge.
Its going to measure him, Charles said.
Its going to measure everybody, especial-
ly Sean. Hes going to see where hes at. He
cant wait for the competition.
Menlo is definitely loaded. A win on
Friday would make it 11 CCS titles since
1998 for the Knights and ve straight.
This team differs because of its depth,
Shine said. From top to bottom, were
very strong. I think we have four or ve No.
1 players that would play No. 1 on a lot of
teams. And then down into the doubles, it
just doesnt stop. Theyre not into the ego
thing. They just want to get out there and
compete and theyre happy to play and con-
tribute. Theyre very unselsh.
The Knights have been in this position
before though where teams go into a big
match against them with nothing to lose.
Shine said his boys are ready for that.
We know that were going to get every-
bodys best shot, Shine said. Thats what
comes with being the top team. We know
that. We know were going to get every-
ones best effort. What I tell the boys is that
you have to stay in the moment. The teams
are going to come out and give you their
best effort right at the beginning and you
have to weather the storm and just play your
game. Dont get too high or certainly too
low. We expect to get their best shot every
single time. And they like that. They want
to play the best teams. They want to play
the best players. And that says a lot about
who they are as young kids and tennis play-

David Moyes leaving
Everton to manage Man United
MANCHESTER, England David Moyes
inherited one of the toughest and most cov-
eted jobs in soccer on Thursday succeed-
ing Alex Ferguson as manager of mighty
Manchester United.
Moyes is leaving Everton to join the 20-
time English champions. He has a six-year
contract and will take charge of the newly
crowned Premier League champs on July 1.
Its a great honor to be asked to be the
next manager of Manchester United,
Moyes said in a statement. I am delighted
that Sir Alex saw t to recommend me for the
job. I have great respect for everything he
has done and for the football club.
Ferguson announced on Wednesday he is
retiring after nearly 27 years at Old Trafford.
I know how hard it will be to follow the
best manager ever, but the opportunity to
manage Manchester United isnt something
that comes around very often and Im really
looking forward to taking up the post next

British newspapers reported that
Simpson is survived by a wife and
an infant.
Artemis Racing said doctors
afloat with the team and on
shore were unable to revive
Simpson after he was freed from
the wreckage. The other sailor suf-
fered minor injuries, and the rest
of the crew of about a dozen people
was accounted for and taken back
to their dock in Alameda.
Ofcials said winds were blow-
ing between 15 and 20 knots (17
to 23 mph) when the boat cap-
sized. The National Weather
Service later issued a small-craft
advisory, warning inexperienced
mariners to stay off the bay and

The Artemis boat flipped in
winds of about 20 knots near
Treasure Island, which is bisected
by the Oakland-San Francisco Bay
Bridge. The armada of rescue boats
and helicopters were visible from
the roadway.
Simpson and the unidentified
injured sailor were brought to
shore as the St. Francis Yacht Club
in San Francisco, where para-
medics performed CPR on
Simpson. He was pronounced dead
a short time later.
This is the second time a sailor
has died during training for the
Americas Cup. In 1999, Martin
Wizner of the Spanish Challenge
died almost instantly when he was
hit in the head by a broken piece
of equipment.
No deaths have been recorded
during the actual racing since its
inception in 1851.
Simpson and his partner Iain
Percy won an Olympic gold
medal for England in 2008 in
the Star class of sailing. The
duo was expected to repeat in
London in 2012 but was upset
by a Swedish team and settled
for silver.
Percy is Artemis director and
the boats tactician. The team
announced Feb. 23 that Simpson
was joining Artemis to provide

Artemis Racing has had its share

year, skipper Terry Huthinson of
Annapolis, Md., was released.
He was replaced by Nathan

problems, as well. Last fall,

ArtemisAC72 wing sail sustained
serious damage while it was being
tested on a modied trimaran in
Valencia, Spain.
This also wasnt the first
Americas Cup boat to capsize on
the hard-blowing San Francisco
Bay. Oracles $10 million boat
capsized in 25-knot winds in
October, and strong tides swept it
four miles past the Golden Gate
Bridge. No one was injured, but
the rough waters destroyed the
131-foot wing sail, and the boat
was sidelined until a new sail
shipped from New Zealand was
installed in February.
Stephen Barclay, CEO of the
Americas Cup Event Authority,
said ofcials were investigating
Thursdays accident. He said it was
unclear what effect the death will
have on the America Cup races,
which are scheduled to run from

instead turned to the more experi-

result in an elimination loss.
So, Garcia had to wait until this
years rematch with CSM to get
back on the postseason winning
track. And after falling behind 5-1
in the third inning of the fateful

Garcias offense picked him up,
scoring three in the bottom of the
third, and two more in the decisive
This game was special to me
because by the time the score
was 5-1 the game was out of my
hands, Garcia said. I really
couldnt do anything to get the
score back up. So I just waited
for my hitters and fortunately
we came back. I was very sur-
prised, but I knew my team could
do that because weve done it
before. So I had total confidence
in their ability.
Kittle said he was planning on
removing Garcia after the fifth
inning, feeling his sophomore
was running out of gas. However,
Garcia cruised through the fth on
just six pitches, so Kittle left him
in. Garcia ultimately retired 13 of

Fitzgeralds The Great Gatsby is
short, almost novella size. It fea-
tures larger-than-life characters,
glamorous extravagance and dra-
matic demises. On its surface, its
the most Hollywood-friendly of the
great American novels.
But Gatsby remains elusive, its
poetry largely locked on the page
despite a century of attempted
adaptations. Since it was published
(to an initially cold response) in
1925, it has spawned four previous
films (including a 1926 silent
movie thats since been lost) and
numerous stage productions. The
folly of transferring the novel to
other media was even parodied in
an 8-bit Nintendo-style video game
where Nick Carraway must evade
cocktail-dispensing butlers and
Charleston-dancing appers.

WICK BURNS. In After Glow:
As the Wick Burns, Robert
Minervini addresses the ecologi-
cal impact of humanity on the
landscape. In a group of 13 new
paintings and drawings of oral
still lifes, literal and metaphorical
quotations from traditional
European vanitas paintings are
reimagined in contemporary envi-
ronments. The flora and fauna
depicted in these works are cur-
rently listed as endangered
wildlife in California. These pres-
ent day memento mori directly ref-
erence the traditional form and
function of European vanitas
paintings which acted as sym-
bolic reminders of the inevitabili-
ty of death by depicting local
wildlife that is in the process of
The subtitle As the Wick
Burns is a poetic adaptation of a
familial saying, which Minervini
would use whenever preparing to
depart from family gatherings. In
Molfetesse, Minervinis familys
regional language, the expression
Sa squagghiate la cer roughly
translates as the candle wick is
about to burn out, meaning our
time together is coming to an end.
Minervini often found this saying
to be bittersweet, and it echoes the
notion of time eeting presented
in his work.
Ranging in scale from intimate
to grand, and in style from
abstract to realistic, these art-
works display owers chosen for
their symbolism of aesthetic
beauty and the way in which they
simultaneously signify ecological
disaster in a specific time and
place. Through this body of work,
Minervini poses the question:
What is the greater cultural signif-
icance of depicting something
that is both beautiful and a sign of
something profoundly tragic?
Minervini received his MFA at
the San Francisco Art Institute and
his BFA at Tyler School of Art in
Philadelphia, Pa. He has exhibited
extensively on a national basis as
well as at the Yerba Buena Center
for the Arts, the San Francisco
Arts Commission Gallery, and the

draw from a Goth sensibility, but
also from the thriving low-brow
art movement in Los Angeles and
its references to classic cartoons,

Atapas-style meal made up of a variety of
small, appetizer-like bites is something we
tend to associate with evenings and cock-
tails. But we thought the same idea of small
plates would lend itself perfectly to a
Mothers Day brunch. So we came up with a
variety of tapas ideas suitable for Moms
big day.
Use these ideas as a jumping off point.
Accompany them with mini mufns, mini
bagels with cream cheese and smoked
salmon, and fresh berries served in shot
glasses and topped with yogurt and honey.
And nobody says you need to give up the
cocktails. Mimosas, anyone?
Start to nish: 30 minutes (15 minutes
Makes 12 pieces
12 cremini mushroom caps
Salt and ground black pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
1 link (about 4 ounces) fresh chorizo
sausage, casing removed, crumbled
1 small potato, grated
2 tablespoons water
1/4 cup grated manchego cheese
Heat the oven to 400 F.
Arrange the mushroom caps, open end up,
on a rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with
salt and pepper, then roast for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium skillet over
medium-high, heat the olive oil. Add the
onion and chorizo and saute until browned,
5 to 6 minutes. Add the potato and water,
then cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. When
the mushrooms are roasted, spoon the
sausage mixture into the caps and sprinkle
with the cheese. Return to the oven for
another 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room

Heat the oven to 400 F.
Slice each potato into six 1/2-inch-thick
slabs. Brush the potato slices with olive oil
on both sides. Season with salt and pepper.
Arrange the slices on a rimmed baking sheet
and roast for 15 to 20 minutes, or until ten-

Cut the tops off the peppers, then slice
them in half top to bottom. Remove and dis-
card any seeds and ribs from the halves.
In a medium bowl, mix together the cream
cheese, cheddar, ham, paprika and scal-
lions. Spoon a bit of the mixture into each

uiche has a reputation as
a complicated dish. And
Im not sure why.
Home cooks worry about the
crust. They angst over the l l-
ings. Do they have the right mix
of meats or veggies? Which type
of cheese? And how much is too
much? And then there is striking
the balance of egg and dairy,
never mind determining the best
way to season the mixture.
Which makes it all sound so
very troublesome. And yet quiche
really is such a simple dish that is
both versatile and forgiving. Not
even the least skilled home cook
has an excuse for skipping it.
Especially come Mothers Day.
Quiche is perfect for breakfast in
bed. Its easy enough for the kids
to help with. It even can be
prepped the night before.
So lets demystify it step-by-
step, starting with the crust.
Homemade is ne, but I just dont
bother. Purchased pie dough
wont win
you any bak-
ing competi-
tions, but its
for a quiche
crust. I try to
always keep a
package of
rolled crusts
in the freezer.
They thaw
quickly and
are simple to unroll and t into a
As for the pan, I prefer a tart
pan with a removable bottom. It
is easier to slice the quiches and
remove each serving, and its
attractive. But a pie pan works
ne, too.
Next up, the llings. I like to
keep it simple with ham or
sausage. But whatever meat you
use, keep the chunks small.
Veggies should be at least partial-
ly cooked before they go into the
crust. This isnt just to ensure
they are fully cooked, though
thats important, too. Roasting
or sauteing the veggies rst helps
remove excess moisture so you
dont end up with a waterlogged
quiche. Whatever mix you use,
aim for about half a pound.
Cheese should be grated or
shredded. Cheddar and gouda are
nice, as is Gruyere. Robust
cheeses are good, too, such as
feta or Parmesan, but in general
these work better as accent
cheeses. In other words, combine
them with a good melting cheese.
Aim for a total of about 1 1/2
cups of cheese.
The nal step is the eggs and
milk. For a large quiche, youll
want about 8 eggs and 1/3 cup of
milk. Dont have that many
eggs? Use what you have and up
the milk. Dont have milk? Up
the eggs and add a splash or water
or half-and-half. Whisk it.
Seasonings? Keep it simple.
We dont want to work too hard
here, or overshadow our llings
or the eggs. I usually use salt,
pepper, dried thyme, maybe some
fennel seed, and nothing more.
I dont pretend that my what-
have-you approach to quiche
making would make Julia Child
proud. But the nature of quiches
means they tend to be delicious
almost no matter what you do.
And that is plenty good enough
for me.
Start to nish: 40 minutes
Servings: 8
1 prepared uncooked pie crust,
room temperature
8 ounces deli-sliced ham,
6 ounces (1 1/2 cups) grated
cheddar cheese
8 eggs
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pep-
Heat the oven to 425 F. Coat an
11-inch tart pan with removable
bottom with cooking spray.
Alternatively, use a 9-inch deep
dish pie pan. Set the pan on a
baking sheet.
Unroll the pie crust and set it
into the prepared pan. Gently
push the crust into the corners
and up the edges of the pan,
crimping and trimming as needed.
Scatter the ham and cheese
evenly over the crust.
In a medium bowl, whisk
together the eggs, milk, thyme,
fennel, salt and pepper. Pour the
mixture over the ham and cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until
puffed and set at the center and
lightly browned at the edges.
Cool slightly or completely
before slicing and serving.

Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
By Christy Lemire
If any piece of classic American literature
should be depicted on lm with wildly deca-
dent and boldly inventive style, its The
Great Gatsby. After all, who was the charac-
ter of Jay Gatsby himself if not a spinner of
grandiose tales and a peddler of lavish
And Baz Luhrmann would seem like the
ideal director to bring F. Scott Fitzgeralds
story to the screen yet again, to breathe new
life into these revered words, having shaken
up cultural institutions previously with lms
like William Shakespeares Romeo + Juliet
and Moulin Rouge! This is the man who
dared to stage the iconic balcony scene in a
swimming pool, so mixing in a little Jay-Z
amid the Jazz Age standards strangely makes
But in Luhrmanns previous lms, there
still existed a fundamental understanding of
the point of the stories he was telling;
beneath their gorgeous trappings, they still
reected the heart and the purpose of the
works from which they were drawn. His
Great Gatsby is all about the glitter but it
has no soul and the fact that hes directed
it in 3-D only magnies the feeling of arti-
ciality. His camera rushes and swoops and
twirls through one elaborately staged bac-
chanal after another but instead of creating a
feeling of vibrancy, the result is repetitive
and ultimately numbing. Rather than creat-
ing a sense of immersion and tangibility, the
3-D holds you at arms length, rendering the
expensive, obsessive details as shiny and
hollow when they should have been exqui-
(We should point out that the clothes,
especially the dresses Carey Mulligan wears
as the elusive, ethereal golden girl Daisy
Buchanan, are magnicent, though the
work of Luhrmanns wife and frequent collab-
orator Catherine Martin, who serves as both
production and costume designer. Watching
The Great Gatsby, the lm, makes you
wonder whether all of this might have func-
tioned more effectively as The Great
Gatsby, the Vogue magazine spread.)
Luhrmanns adaptation, which he co-wrote
with Craig Pearce, lacks the sense of melan-
choly and longing that emanated from the
novels pages, even though the script
invokes Fitzgeralds prose early and often
through voiceover from Tobey Maguire as
our narrator, guide and Fitzgerald stand-in
Nick Carraway. Sometimes, as in the books
famous, nal sentence, the words pop right
up on screen and linger in the air.
But theres something about hearing and
seeing them in this fashion that depletes
them of the power they provide when we
experience them on the written page. Its a
reminder that one of the most celebrated
novels of our time, at its core, is a melodra-
matic tale of love and loss, jealousy and
Gatsby himself, played with well-coifed
panache by Leonardo DiCaprio, too often
comes off as a needy, clingy stalker rather
than a tragic gure and a victim of the
American dream. But in general, though,
Luhrmanns Gatsby doesnt get the fact
that the book was intended as a critical look
at a crumbling dream. It gets too caught up in
the buzz of the party.
The plot, real quickly, in case its been a
while since 10th-grade English class: The
year is 1922, and young Nick Carraway has
moved into a cottage on the nouveau riche
Long Island enclave of West Egg with dreams
of making it big on the New York Stock
Exchange. Across the bay is the old-mon-
eyed community of East Egg, where Nicks
cousin, the dazzling socialite Daisy, lives
with her cheating, blue-blooded husband,
Tom (Joel Edgerton).
But everyone, regardless of where theyre
from, gathers each weekend for wild parties
at Gatsbys palatial abode which happens
to be next door to Nicks humble house. The
normally mysterious Gatsby befriends Nick
with hopes of reconnecting with Daisy, the
one who got away five years earlier.
Mulligans Daisy is more of an idea than a
fully eshed-out person, but then again,
maybe thats always been the point: that
shes alluring but tantalizingly out of reach.
DiCaprio, meanwhile despite the usual
depth and edge he can bring to a role
comes off here as a parody of a Fitzgerald
character, tossing around Gatsbys jovial
greeting of old sport so often in his affect-
ed accent, it could make for a dangerous
drinking game. Now that would truly be
The Great Gatsby, a Warner Bros.
Pictures release, is rated PG-13 for some vio-
lent images, sexual content, smoking, par-
tying and brief language. Running time: 141
minutes. One and a half stars out of four.
All sparkle, no soul in Great Gatsby
Great Gatsby is all about the glitter but it has no soul and the fact that Baz Luhrmanns

crack the cinematic code of Fitzgeralds
Whether we made the right choices or
the wrong choices, we didnt make any
flippant choices, says Luhrmann, the
director of Moulin Rouge and Romeo
and Juliet.
All great novels have their own impos-
sibilities of being captured on the big
screen, but Gatsby poses particular chal-
lenges because of its amorphous beauty.
The character of Jay Gatsby is deliberately
vague (even Fitzgerald later wondered to
his editor Max Perkins if he should have
fleshed him out more). Daisy, too, is ide-
alized all out of proportion. The book
isnt a chronicle of happenings, but the
lyrical, written-down reflections of
Carraway, the narrator: Its in the telling,
not the tale.
The adaptations of Gatsby have left, if
not quite a foul dust in their wake, then
certainly a legacy of disappointment.
All thats left of the first film, starring
Warner Baxter and directed by Herbert
Brenon for Paramount Pictures, is the
trailer, which can be found on YouTube. In
her letters, Zelda Fitzgerald reportedly
pronounced the film, based on an early
Broadway production, rotten.
The 1949 Gatsby, starring Alan Ladd,
may be the most lamentable version. It
opened with Carraway and Daisy visiting
Gatsbys grave and concluded with Gatsby,
shortly before his end, exuberantly prom-
ising rehabilitation in dated lingo: Im
going to pay up, Nick. Im going to square
The 1974 film, produced by Robert
Evans and starring Robert Redford, is
almost universally described as lifeless.
The 2000 made-for-TV Gatsby starring
Toby Stephens and Mira Sorvino, is per-
haps best left unmentioned.
Jackson Bryer, president of the F. Scott
Fitzgerald Society and editor of the
Library of Congress collection of
Fitzgerald, says making a movie of
Gatsby is like adapting a poem.
Part of the beauty of the novel is that
he doesnt tell you much about anybody,
says Bryer, professor emeritus of English
at the University of Maryland. Once you
particularize it by making it Robert
Redford or Leonardo DiCaprio, youre lim-
iting it.
In need of more specificity than
Fitzgeralds book could provide,
Luhrmann and his frequent screenwriter,
Craig Pearce, went looking elsewhere to
fill in details.
Luhrmann even had help from Francis
Ford Coppola, who (after Truman Capotes
draft was tossed out) penned the 1974
film, which also starred Sam Watterson as
Carraway and Mia Farrow as Daisy.
Coppola has said he was shocked to find
almost no dialogue between Daisy and
Gatsby in the book, so he delved into
Fitzgeralds short stories to find the lan-
guage for a six-page scene of the two talk-
ing through the night.
Coppola shared unused scenes with
Luhrmann and encouraged him to dig into
Fitzgeralds other writings.
He was the one who said to me: Go to
other Fitzgerald texts and look for clues,
says Luhrmann. Because Francis encour-
aged me to do that, we came upon the idea
of the sanatorium.
To solve the problem of narration and
avoid beginning the film with that classic
overturning of pages in a book, Luhrmann
and Pearce placed Carraway in a sanatori-
um where a psychiatrist is helping him
work through his alcoholism by writing.
The filmmakers drew this from both
Fitzgeralds own booze-soaked life and his
unfinished novel about Hollywood, The
Last Tycoon, for which he had planned a
sanatorium scene.
We spent a lot of time working out:
Whats the device that were going to use
to make that voice-over active? says
Pearce. That kept us up a lot at night.
They also drew from Fitzgeralds earlier
draft of the novel, Trimalchio, which
DiCaprio was especially devoted to.
Everyone who reads this book has their
own interpretations of these characters,
says DiCaprio. Part of what made
Fitzgeralds writing so great is its very
voyeuristic. You feel like youre privy to
conversations that you shouldnt be privy
to. When you translate that to film, you
have to be much more specific.
Of course, what most distinguishes
Luhrmanns Gatsby from others is its
razzle dazzle: Its effects-heavy assault of
outlandish style and loud music. As the
director says, I carry a brand which has a
whole lot of noise around it.
Though many critics have already taken
issue with Luhrmanns stylistic flourishes
in The Great Gatsby, its clear hes wres-
tled with finding a way to be faithful to the
book and to Fitzgeralds prose. During the
narration, some of the famous phrases
drift across the screen. Unlike the Redford
version, no one will say Luhrmanns film
lacks energy, but rather that it has too
much of it. DiCaprio, too, is far better
suited to the part than Ladd, (as are the
other leads: Mulligan, Maguire and Joel
Edgerton as Tom Buchanan).
But no matter how one attempts to tack-
le Gatsby, it remains powerfully myste-
rious, resistant to intrusion. In setting out
to adapt the book, John Collins, artistic
director of the theater group Elevator
Repair Service, hit upon a novel idea:
Dont . The troupes acclaimed nearly
seven-hour production, Gatz, focused on
a man reading every word of the book.
I felt like the novel was just a kind of
perfect crystal and I got frustrated trying
to figure out what parts to cut and what
parts to leave in, says Collins. The
accomplishment was that Fitzgerald had
written a novel where every word really
seemed necessary. The writing, itself,
dared you to keep every word of it because
it was so well constructed.
Though Collins can understand why the
spectacle of the story would appeal to
filmmakers, he says: The book, to me, is
not about those things. Its about how
thin they are.
Its hard to describe what I love so much
about (The Great Gatsby), says
Collins. Its easy to see all the ways in
which it can be misunderstood. And some
people think its not a very good novel.
Of course, I disagree.
Continued from page 17
the silent-movie era, when it was published
to scant sales in 1925.
Within a couple of decades after
Fitzgeralds death in 1940, Gatsby was
acknowledged as a masterpiece and the
author was recognized as one of Americas
greatest for a body of work that includes
Tender Is the Night, This Side of
Paradise and The Love of the Last
Tycoon, the unnished Hollywood saga
hed been writing when he died.
Ahuge irony considering no one was read-
ing Fitzgerald when he was scrambling for
screenplay work toward the end of his life.
Theres even a small irony in the place he
died of a heart attack at 44. It was the home
of his companion, gossip columnist Sheila
Graham, in the heart of an industry town
where his supreme art never meshed with the
studios need for product. Its also half a
block from where the Directors Guild of
America headquarters now stands.
God is a great stage manager. God is the
greatest director of all time for images of
pathos, Luhrmann said. Fitzgerald, just
think for all that he gave to us, he had a very
rough trot. It is very sad. If he could only
know how many people went on to read that
novel and how universal it has become.
Luhrmanns Gatsby stars DiCaprio in
the title role as the fabulously rich mystery
man whos really a hopeless, doomed
romantic, befriending impressionable
neighbor Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) to
help revive a lost love with Nicks cousin
Daisy (Carey Mulligan).
Fitzgerald himself had several unsuccess-
ful stints as a screenwriter in Hollywood,
the last beginning in the late 1930s, when
he was under contract with MGM, contribut-
ing tfully to scripts to pay off debts and
cover medical bills for his wife, Zelda, who
was in a mental hospital. His reputation for
boozing and carousing were Fitzgeralds
undoing; though he worked on a number of
lms, including Gone with the Wind, his
only screenwriting credit came for the 1938
war romance Three Comrades.
I dont think that anyone would argue
that Fitzgerald wasnt the architect of his
own failure in Hollywood, said Robert S.
Birchard, an editor at the American Film
Institute who wrote a cover story on
Gatsby screen adaptations for the May
issue of the groups American Film journal.
A disastrous collaboration with admirer
Budd Schulberg on the screenplay for a lm
called Winter Carnival was Fitzgeralds
nal downfall in Hollywood, Birchard said.
Schulberg used the experience as the basis
for his novel The Disenchanted, chroni-
cling a young writers disillusionment as
his literary idol, now a Hollywood hack,
sinks into an alcoholic breakdown.
As Schulberg wasnt able to keep him on
the wagon, and in fact got dragged into the
drunken spree, that maybe suggested to
other producers that Fitzgerald not only was
unreliable but a bad inuence on those he
worked with, Birchard said. Even with the
best of intentions, it was not a wise thing to
hire him.
Like many prose authors, Fitzgerald could
not adapt to studio formulas and collabora-
tive projects. His dialogue often was styl-
ized speech that read well on the page but
might ring false on screen, while he wrote
long descriptive passages that were useless
in a screenplay.
Part of the answer is, he truly was an
artist. He was in it at that point of time for
the money, but he had visions of truly being
a literary writer rather than grinding out a
script that had this many lines, said
Donelle Dadigan, president of the
Hollywood Museum. He couldnt turn his
art into a craft.
Fitzgerald wrote about what he knew, so
his hard partying and slacker ways were
reected in his ction, including his Pat
Hobby stories featuring a screenwriting
alter-ego, a scheming scribbler always
angling for paying gigs that required no
That contributed to his reputation as an
undependable scribe. He even chronicled
his decline from literary wonder boy to
despondent failure in a series of essays pub-
lished as The Crack-Up.

Now in its second year, the evening
is predicated upon research surround-
ing long-term English language learn-
ers which says early childhood expo-
sure to reading at home and at school
is the foundation for a childs success
in education. For 90 minutes every
Thursday night, San Mateo High
School facilitates reading activities
and homework tutoring for both fami-
lies of high school students and
neighboring elementary schools.
Teens volunteer work with students on
reading, academics and computer liter-
acy. This year, the program was one of
19 programs honored by the San
Mateo County School Board
Association with a Kent Award, which
are given to outstanding and innova-
tive programs either in or outside the
All around the library, students are
hard at work.
Nineteen-year-old Veronica Torivo,
a senior, was anked by sisters Ester
and Naomi, both 5. Together the little
ones worked on writing different let-
ters as Torivo supervised. Both girls
expressed liking coming to the work
nights. Torivo, who has volunteered
from the start, agreed.
I like being with kids and helping
them with their studies, she said.
At a nearby table, 7-year-old Alexa
sounded out words in a story called
The Donkeys Shadow. Foolish
proves to be a difcult word but, with
the help of junior Leslie Chan, 16, the
girls quickly master the challenge.
What sound do two Os make?
Chan asked.
The pair went back and forth before
sounding out foolish and moving on.
Alexa has been coming to the tutoring
nights regularly. She said it helps her
get through her homework.
Volunteers work with children on
their homework first, then reading,
explained Tracey Freyre, one of the
two San Mateo High teachers who
head the program. While the recent
evening was packed, it didnt start that
way. This year, Freyre and her partner
Keith Brasel did more outreach to
neighboring schools, community
groups and churches. The interest has
tailed off a bit since the start of school
but its still quite busy.
The idea came from working with
long-term English language learners.
A quick polling of the students and
their families revealed many didnt
grow up around books, reading with
parents or working on literacy all
cornerstones for succeeding academi-
cally later. Also, San Mateo High
School had federal money through
Title 1 to support low-income fami-
lies. Brasel worked with the Principal
Yvonne Shiu to develop an idea for the
family literacy night. Money was used
to offer a bit of dinner in hopes of
enticing families to come.
Both Freyre and Brasel also work
with students. In addition to the vol-
unteers, the program features a handful
of paid tutors who help with the work.
Volunteers are also offered literacy
training so they know what kinds of
questions to ask students to really
help them become engrossed in whats
going on.
Brasel, who was working with 7-
year-old Alfonso, took his time allow-
ing the little one to sign onto the
computer. After finishing reading a
number of books, the guys were going
to make their own. Thursday nights
book topic: Angry Birds, the Star
Wars edition.
Even as they talked, their progress
together was showcased. While look-
ing through the characters, Alfonso
asked that Brasel scroll down more.
Whatd you used to say? Brasel
More down, the little one replied.
Perhaps those are the kinds of
moments Brasel was talking about
when he called the experience of being
involved in the weekly night as

The bill Hill will introduce today
will require re extinguishers in the
passenger compartments of all limou-
sines, regardless of how many passen-
gers they carry, he said.
He imagines the bill will be modied
in the coming months to also require
mandates such as requiring more
inspections for modications made to
limousines, most of which are
stretched Lincoln Town Cars.
So many things could go wrong
with the modications, including sub-
standard electrical work, Hill said.
Since the women were trapped inside
the limousine, unable to open the
locked door, Hill also imagines that
some sort of emergency exit device be
in place to help prevent such tragedies
in the future.
There has to be some way of open-
ing the door from the inside in case of
emergency, Hill said.
While Hill has crafted many bills in
the past few years related to the CPUC
after the gas pipeline explosion and
re in San Bruno in 2010, his com-
plete legislative packet this year con-
tains 20 other bills related to such
issues as protecting mountain lions,
drunken driving, combating metham-
phetamine production and reforming
the states Enterprise Zone Program
among others.
Hill has also introduced legisla-
tion, Senate Bill 557, to give the
Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers
Board veto power if the California
High-Speed Rail Authority proposes
again to construct a four-track sys-
tem on the Peninsula.
Senate Bill 55 requires that an indi-
vidual convicted of a second driving-
under-the-inuence offense within 10
years to install and use an ignition
interlock device for one year and com-
ply with IID calibrations every other
month before full driving privileges
are restored.
An incident in Half Moon Bay in
December prompted Hill to craft
Senate Bill 132 that requires the
California Department of Fish and
Wildlife to use nonlethal options
when responding to incidents like the
one that led to the fatal shooting of
two mountain lion cubs by a game war-
den in the backyard of a home.

2013 go to

simple majority are received by the
hearing date, can prevent the increases
from happening.
Sewer and water service comes with
signicant and escalating costs to
keep both readily available and work-
ing, according to city spokesman
Malcolm Smith. Those costs include
the citys share of nancing
the San Francisco Public
Utilities Commissions
$4.6 billion multi-year capi-
tal improvement program to
upgrade its water distribu-
tion system. The citys cost
to receive water from SFPUC
is actually estimated to drop
by 4.1 percent in scal year
2013-14 but then jump up
by 30.2 percent the follow-
ing year followed by 10.7
percent the year after that.
The city is trying to smooth
out the wide variances with
steady, moderate increases
to balance keeping pace
with the jumps without dras-
tic ups and downs. The result
is an annual average increase
of 8 percent to 10 percent.
Other cost factors include
hundreds of millions of dol-
lars in system projects to
upgrade and maintain deliv-
ery and facilities at the
regional treatment plant.
If approved at the June 10
hearing, the new rates will kick in on
Aug. 1, 2013, July 1, 2014 and July 1,
Smith added that, even with the
increases, the rates will be at or below
the average for the Peninsula. For the
typical household using 10 units of
water every two months, the 9 percent
increase will mean an increase of
$3.33 monthly in the rst year, fol-
lowed by $3.60 and $3.91 per month
respectively in the next two years. For
sewer, the 9 percent increases mean an
extra $5.21 per month in the rst year
followed by $5.68 per month in the
second and $6.18 per month in the

thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain

the petition, you should appear at the
hearing and state your objections or file
written objections with the court before
the hearing. Your appearance may be in
person or by your attorney. If you are a
creditor or a contingent creditor of the
decedent, you must file your claim with
the court and mail a copy to the personal
representative appointed by the court
within four months from the date of first
issuance of letters as provided in Pro-
bate Code section 9100. The time for fil-
ing claims will not expire before four
months from the hearing date noticed
above. You may examine the file kept by
the court. If you are a person interested
in the estate, you may file with the court
a Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-
praisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special No-
tice form is available from the court clerk.

BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding
on this property lien, you should under-
stand that there are risks involved in bid-
ding at a trustee auction. You will be bid-
ding on a lien, not on the property itself.
Placing the highest bid at a trustee auc-
tion does not automatically entitle you to
free and clear ownership of the property.
You should also be aware that the lien
being auctioned off may be a junior lien.
If you are the highest bidder at the auc-
tion, you are or may be responsible for
paying off all liens senior to the lien being
auctioned off, before you can receive
clear title to the property. You are en-
couraged to investigate the existence,
priority and size of outstanding liens that
may exist on this property by contacting
the county recorder's office or a title in-
surance company, either of which may
charge you a fee for this information. If
you consult either of these resources,
you should be aware that the same lend-
er may hold more than one mortgage or
deed of trust on the property. NOTICE
TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date
shown on this notice of sale may be
postponed one or more times by the
mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a
court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the
California Civil Code. The law requires
that information about trustee sale post-
ponements be made available to you and
to the public, as a courtesy to those not
present at the sale. If you wish to learn
whether your sale date has been post-
poned, and if applicable, the resched-
uled time and date for the sale of this
property, you may call 877-484-9942 or

mediately be reflected in the telephone
information or on the Internet Web site.
The best way to verify postponement in-
formation is to attend the scheduled sale.

ISLAMABAD An especially violent
spate of killings, kidnappings and bomb-
ings marred the run-up to Pakistans nation-
wide election, capped Thursday by the
abduction of the son of a former prime min-
ister as he was rallying supporters on the
last day of campaigning before the historic
Saturdays election marks the rst time in
Pakistans military coup-riddled history that
a civilian government has nished its term
and will hand over power to another. But the
signicance of the occasion has been over-
shadowed by the relentless violence target-
ing mostly liberal, secular parties.
More than 125 people have been killed by
a series of bombings and shootings that can
mostly be traced to Taliban militants who
have vowed to disrupt a democratic process
they view as un-Islamic. Separatists in the
southwestern province of Baluchistan have
also attacked candidates and their supporters
across the political spectrum.
There was no claim of responsibility for
the abduction of 25-year-old Ali Haider
Gilani, but suspicion immediately fell on
the Taliban. Gilani is running for a provin-
cial assembly seat under the banner of the
Pakistan Peoples Party, one of three parties
the Taliban has singled out for retribution
because they supported military operations
against Taliban insurgents in northwestern
His father, Yousuf Raza Gilani, is a long-
time member of the PPPwho served as prime
minister while many of those military oper-
ations were carried out.
The younger Gilani was leaving an elec-
tion event in the city of Multan in southern
Punjab province when attackers pulled up in
a car and motorcycle, sprayed the area with
bullets, threw him into one of the vehicles
and drove off, ofcials and witnesses said.
One of the gunmen grabbed Haider, who
had blood splashed on his trousers, said
rally participant Shehryar Ali in comments
aired by Pakistani television broadcaster
Geo News.
The former prime minister has been cam-
paigning heavily in Multan to help his
three sons, who are all running for elected
ofce in the district, but he was not at the
rally when his son was taken.
Appearing shaken, the elder Gilani said in
televised comments that two bodyguards
were killed in the attack, but he did not know
whether his son was wounded.
His two guards were shielding him, and
they died, the former premier said. I urge
all of my party supporters to remain peace-
ful and participate in the vote.
Gilani was forced out of ofce last summer
by the Supreme Court after refusing to pur-
sue a corruption case against President Asif
Ali Zardari.
Although his ouster from ofce meant he
could not run in this election, the Gilani
family is still heavily represented in the
Multan district races. In addition to the son
who was abducted, the former prime minister
has two sons running for national assembly
The Pakistan Peoples Party, along with
the Karachi-based Muttahida Quami
Movement and the Awami National Party,
have been singled out for attack by the
Taliban. All were part of the outgoing gov-
ernment during a time when there were
repeated military offensives against Taliban
militants in the tribal areas.
The threat has forced all three to severely
curtail their election events. Instead of the
large, outdoor rallies the PPP used in 2008
to whip up support among thousands of vot-
ers, the party has relied on television and
newspaper ads and smaller indoor gather-
ings where security is more manageable. In
northwest Pakistan, candidates from the
Awami National Party held election events
inside private homes under heavy security or
reached out to voters via social media and by
Ofcials with the PPP lashed out Thursday
after Gilanis abduction, saying the security
forces have done little to protect them.
We were screaming that we need security
for our candidates. We were saying that we
have received threats, but no one heard our
pleas, and we did not get security, said a
party spokeswoman, Sharmila Farouqi.
Now see what has happened. The son of a
former prime minister has been kid-
