U.S. Rep Jackie Speier, military veterans discuss service dog benefits
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

A group of two-legged heroes and


their four-legged saviors gathered with
U. S. Rep. Jackie Speier at the
Peninsula Humane Society Monday to
discuss the immeasurable value service
animals can provide to veterans with
post-traumatic stress disorders.
While the Department of Veterans
Affairs has long provided financial

assistance for service dogs paired with


the physically disabled, Speier said
she wants more done to support veterans with PTSD who may be considering adoption.
Speier, D-San Mateo, said she was
prompted to host Mondays gathering
as the Department of Veterans Affairs
predicts it wont finish a study evaluating the benefits service dogs can provide to those who have PTSD until
2018.
This is a focus on how we can make

the lives of veterans fuller and complete so that they can adapt back in to
society after having been in war-torn
countries, providing us with so much
leadership and so much courage and
seeing untold horrific scenes, that
they can then come home and that we
will be there for them, Speier said.

Special Ops staff sergeant who served

Snoop Dogg sues
Pabst over sale profits
LOS ANGELES Rapper Snoop
Dogg is suing Pabst Brewing Co. over
a deal he says entitles him a portion of
the proceeds from the companys sale
to Oasis Beverages.
The breach of contract lawsuit filed
Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court
seeks 10 percent of the net sales price
paid to Pabst for its Colt 45 malt beer
line, which was included in last years
sale.
Snoop Dogg signed a three-year
agreement in 2011 to endorse Colt 45s
fruit-flavored beer called Blast by Colt
45. The lawsuit states his contract
called for him to receive a portion of
the sale price if Pabst sold its Colt 45
operations before January 2016.
An email sent to Pabst was not immediately returned.
The lawsuit states Pabst told the rapper that the sale didnt trigger the
clause entitling him to sale proceeds.

detective, Wojciech Braszczok was
tasked with investigating members of
Occupy Wall Street. Going by the name

He didnt carry a gun, a badge or identification bearing his real name. On the

crimes for his role in the melee, which


burned his cover and is shedding an
unwanted light on how the nations
largest police department cultivates,
supervises and protects the identities
of officers assigned to undercover duty
in criminal probes or surveillance
operations.
The nature of the work is secret, but
at the end of the day, youre still a
police officer, you have a duty, said
Nick Casale, a former officer-turnedprivate eye. You can blow your cover
if a crime is about to be committed.
The 35,000-officer department wont
reveal how many officers work undercover, but its believed their ranks are
well in the hundreds, if not the thousands.
Supervisors often seek to recruit officers who are tough enough to deal with
the stresses of living a double life and
who speak foreign languages or have
other skills that would allow them to
escape detection in narcotics, gun-trafficking, terrorism and other investigations. In a 2009 internal-affairs investigation of a crooked officer dealing
drugs out of a barbershop he owned, the
department found an officer who had cut
hair before joining the force and rented
him a chair there.
Recruits are taken off routine duty and
diverted into special training programs, then given cover names and stories. Depending on how deep the undercover assignment, any contact with
regular police officers and even highranking commanders can end there.

Stanford student guilty for blocking bridge


By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

It took a jury only 22 minutes Monday to


decide that 24-year-old Stanford student
Jennifer Rebecca Telschow was guilty for
her part in shutting down the San MateoHayward Bridge on the Martin Luther King
Jr. holiday in January.
Telschow and 67 other Stanford students
were arrested Jan. 19 during a Black Lives
Matter protest that stranded thousands of
drivers on the bridge.
Telschow is the second to be convicted by
a jury as Paul Dwight Watkins II, 19, was
found guilty last week of willfully and maliciously obstructing a persons free movement in a public place.
Of the 68 students originally cited by the
California Highway Patrol, 44 pleaded no
contest and were sentenced to 30 hours of
community service and are required to take a
class on the First Amendment.
Watkins was given 45 hours of community service when he was sentenced last week.
Telschow will be sentenced at a later date.
But the same jury in the Watkins case

Comment on
or share this story at
www.smdailyjournal.com
found co-defendant Maria Diaz-Gonzalez,
20, not guilty.
Prosecutors speculated the verdict may
have been split in that case because Watkins
was seen singing and chanting with arms
intertwined with other Stanford students
while Diaz-Gonzalez remained more in the
background during the bridge protest.
Also Monday, a jury trial started against
Clayton William Evans, 22, another
Stanford student cited and released Jan. 19
for protesting a variety of topics including
the shooting of a black man last year by a
white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.
The trial against another batch of students, Yeji Jung, Sevde Kaldiroglu and
Tianya Katherine Pulphus, is also underway.
The county chose to prosecute the students because of the high number of victims.
Calls to 911 from some of the victims

were part of the evidence prosecutors presented during the case.


The victims included a young mother with
a newborn, an elderly man who needed to
pick up his grandchildren and another who
called 911 complaining that he needed to
use the bathroom.
Prosecutor Jenna Johansson said last
week during the Watkins trial that it was
pure luck that the protest did not create an
emergency on the bridge.
The remaining Stanford students awaiting
trial are Ekela Aliyah Autry, Kristian D.
Bailey, Madelaine Bixler, Lucas James Del
Toro, Nicole Corrine Follman, Carla
Saadiya Forbes, Stewart A. Isaacs, Alona L.
King, Maya Patricia, Lilly Kratzer, Biola

Irving A. Rodriguez-Montanez, Christopher
Randall Russ, Jessica Elizabeth Schrantz,
Saint Manuel Thompson, Alina Leiann
Tucker, Elliot Alexander Williams and

Attorneys Office.

comment Monday.

Traffic fine policy banned in California court system


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Motorists in some


California counties will no longer have to
pay traffic tickets before they can contest
them in court under a new rule adopted
Monday by the state court systems governing body.
The Judicial Council voted unanimously
to abolish the practice of demanding bail as
a prerequisite to challenging a traffic citation. The vote came as state officials have
raised concerns that traffic fines and penalties are ensnaring minority and low-income
residents. Fines have skyrocketed in
California over the past two decades, and

courts have grown reliant on fees as a result


of budget cuts during the recession.
The Judicial Councils decision takes
effect immediately, and also requires courts
to notify traffic defendants that they dont
have to make the payments to appear in
court in any instructions or other materials
they provide to the public.
I am proud of the rule that has been
developed, California Supreme Court
Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye said in a
statement. This is an important first step
to address an urgent access-to-justice
issue.
Many county courts do not require pay-

ment before motorists can appear in traffic


court. But the American Civil Liberties
Union sent letters in April to eight
Northern and Central California counties
where it found the practice was stated on the
counties websites. Those counties included
Fresno and Shasta, but not San Francisco or
Sacramento.

A driver followed a suspected drunk driver


and took her keys after she crashed into a
parked car in South San Francisco Saturday
night, police said.
The driver called 911 to report another
driver swerving all over the road on Chestnut
Avenue at El Camino Real at 10:21 p.m.,
police said.
The caller followed the other car until it
crashed into a parked car on Arroyo and Indio

and waited for police to arrive.
Police arrested the driver, identified as
Maria Cuza, 64, of San Francisco, on suspicion of driving under the influence. Her
blood-alcohol level was nearly three times
the legal limit of .08 percent, police said.

NEW YORK Those record profits that


companies are reporting may not be all
theyre cracked up to be. As the stock market
climbs ever higher, professional investors
are warning that companies are presenting
misleading versions of their results that
ignore a wide variety of normal costs of running a business to make it seem like theyre
doing better than they really are.
Whats worse, the financial analysts who
are supposed to fight corporate spin are often
playing along. Instead of challenging the
companies, theyre largely passing along the
rosy numbers in reports recommending
stocks to investors.
Companies are tilting the results, says
fund manager Tom Brown of Second Curve
Capital, and the analysts are buying it.
An analysis of results from 500 major companies by the Associated Press, based on data
provided by S&P Capital IQ, a research firm,
found that the gap between the adjusted
profits that analysts cite and bottom-line
earnings figures that companies are legally
obliged to report, or net income, has widened
dramatically over the past five years.
At one of every five companies, these
adjusted profits were higher than net
income by 50 percent or more. Many more
companies are in that category now than
there were five years ago. And some companies that seem profitable on an adjusted basis

Seventy-two percent of the companies reviewed


by AP had adjusted profits that were higher than
net income in the first quarter of this year. Thats
about the same as in the comparable period five
years earlier, but the gap between the adjusted and
net income figures has widened considerably:
adjusted earnings were typically 16 percent higher
than net income in the most recent period versus 9
percent five years ago.
For a smaller group of the companies reviewed, 21
percent of the total, adjusted profits soared 50 percent
or more over net income. This was true of just 13
percent of the group in the same period five years ago.
Quarter after quarter, the differences between the
adjusted and bottom-line figures are adding up. From

are actually losing money.


It wasnt supposed to be this way. After the
dot-com crash of 2000, companies and analysts vowed to clean up their act and avoid
highlighting alternative versions of earnings in a way that could mislead investors.
But Lynn Turner, chief accountant at the
Securities and Exchange Commission at the
time, says companies are still touting madeup, phony numbers as much as they did 15
years ago, perhaps more, and few experts are
calling them out on it.
The analysts arent doing enough to get
behind the numbers that management gives
them to find out whats really going on,
Turner says.
Offering an alternative view of profits that
leaves out various costs is not new. Its perfectly legal, and sometimes helpful as a tool

2010 through 2014, adjusted profits for the S&P 500


came in $583 billion higher than net income. Its as if
each company in the S&P 500 got a check in the mail
for an extra eight months of earnings.
Fifteen companies with adjusted profits actually had
bottom-line losses over the five years. Investors have
poured money into their stocks just the same.
Stocks are getting more expensive, meaning there
could be a greater risk of stocks falling if the earnings
figures being used to justify buying them are
questionable. One measure of how richly priced stocks
are suggests trouble. Three years ago, investors paid
$13.50 for every dollar of adjusted profits for
companies in the S&P 500 index, according to S&P
Capital IQ. Now, theyre paying nearly $18.

for investors to gain insight into how a business is doing. But with stocks breaking
record after record and the current bull market
entering its seventh year, theres more money
riding on the assumption that the earnings
figures being touted by companies and analysts are based on sound calculations.
The longer the rally, the bigger the downside because of all the smoke and mirrors,
says money manager John Del Vecchio, coauthor of Whats Behind the Numbers? a
book on how profit reports can mislead.
In its study, AP compared bottom-line profit figures that follow rules called generally
accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, to
the adjusted profit figures calculated by financial analysts and collected by S&P Capital IQ.
AP looked at companies in the Standard &
Poors 500 index.

Monday as it showed off a host of new software features for its iPhones, iPads and Mac
computers.
The $10-a-month music service is called
Apple Music and combines on-demand listening, a 24/7 radio station hosted by live
DJs and a forum for artists to give fans
behind-the-scenes content from upcoming
releases.
The service represents a chance for Apple
to come from behind in a digital music field
that it once led. With a lengthy threemonth free trial, a $15-a-month plan for up
to six family members, and the ability to
push the app to 100s of millions of iPhone
and iPad users, the launch could mark a
major milestone in digital music.
Besides offering the new subscription
plan, the app also will continue to allow
download purchases from iTunes. It will be
available this summer for Apple devices and
Windows PCs, and in a break from Apples
usual practice, it will also be released as an
app for Android devices this fall.
The service comes at a time when iTunes
songs and album sales are falling, while
streaming music leaders like Spotify and
Deezer are gaining subscribers and revenue.
The music service was the biggest news
of the companys five-day conference, but
Apple also announced a host of new
upgrades and services coming later this
year to the operating software for its popular iPhones, iPads and Mac computers.
The new features including enhancements
to Siri, the companys voice-activated digital assistant, as well as Apple Pay, Apple

Maps and the Apple Watch. Executives also
mentioned a new streaming TV service that
Apple is reportedly hoping to announce
later this year.
Analysts say the new services and
upgrades, which will be available when
Apple releases free updates to its iOS and
Mac OS software this fall, are part of a
broader strategy to make Apples devices
indispensable.
While many companies make smart-

phones and computers, Apples crown


jewels are its software and online services,
said analyst Daniel Ives, who follows tech
companies for FBR Capital Markets.
Some of the new features could provide
new profits for the tech powerhouse. But
perhaps more importantly, they may help
keep customers from defecting to rivals
like Google, which showed off new features
for its competing Android mobile software
at its event last month.

May was wettest in U.S. records


By Seth Borenstein
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Feeling soggy? Last


month was the wettest on record for the contiguous United States, according to federal
meteorologists.
On average 4.36 inches of rain and snow
mostly rain fell over the Lower 48 in
May, sloshing past October 2009 which had
been the wettest month in U.S. records with
4. 29 inches. National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration records go
back to 1895.
NOAA climate scientist Jake Crouch calculated that comes to more than 200 trillion
gallons of water in May.
Crouch said the record was triggered by a
stalled pattern of storms that dumped massive amounts of rain in the central U.S.,
especially in Texas and Oklahoma, which
had their rainiest months.
Oklahoma and Texas had been in a fiveyear drought and it was washed away in just
one month, Crouch said: Its like one disaster ending a catastrophe.
Colorado had its rainiest May on record.
Arkansas, Nebraska and Utah had their second wettest month on record. Fourteen
states had one of their 10 rainiest Mays on

record, all of them west of the Mississippi
River and east of California.
Still, parts of the Northeast were unusually dry. It was the second driest May for
Massachusetts and the third driest May for
Rhode Island and New Jersey.
Last month was 1.45 inches wetter than
20th-century average for May. It was only the
seventh time the entire contiguous United
States averaged four inches of rain or more.
The global climate phenomenon El Nino,
which starts with a warming in the central
Pacific and changes weather worldwide for a

year or so, is usually associated with such


heavy rainfall, Crouch said. He added that it
is too early to say if it triggered the record
moisture. Also, more heavy downpours are
expected as the world warms, but Crouch
said theres no way to connect climate
change to a single, soggy month.
Mays average temperature in the U.S. was
60.8 degrees, which is slightly warmer than
the 20th-century average. However,
Connecticut,
Massachusetts,
New
Hampshire and Rhode Island had their
warmest Mays on record.

JERUSALEM Israel built and exploded

Obama: U.S. lacks complete


strategy for training Iraqis
By Julie Pace and Nedra Pickler
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

German Chancellor Angela Merkel holds a news conference during the G-7 summit at Elmau Castle hotel in
Kruen near Garmisch-Partenkirchen, southern Germany.

G-7 sets goal to move away from


fossil fuels by end of the century
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ELMAU, Germany The world


should move away from using fossil fuels by the end of this century,
G-7 leaders announced Monday,
setting an ambitious but distant
goal ahead of a global summit on
climate change this year.
The leaders of seven wealthy
democracies also warned Russia
that sanctions imposed for its
actions against Ukraine would
remain until a cease-fire is fully
observed in eastern Ukraine and
those sanctions could be made
tougher if the situation requires.
German Chancellor Angela
Merkel, whose turn it was to host

the annual gathering, pressed for a


commitment to decarbonize the
global economy that is, to
eliminate most carbon dioxide
emissions from burning oil, gas
and coal. While the goal was set
for the end of the century, the
seven leaders also asserted that
urgent and concrete action is
needed to address climate change.
Burning fossil fuels produces
carbon dioxide, which traps the
suns heat and warms the atmosphere.
The leaders agreed to press for a
reduction, by 2050, of 40 to 70
percent in the 2010 global emission levels of the greenhouse
gases blamed for global warming.

The range was a disappointment


to some environmental activists,
but the leaders added they recommended the upper end of that
range. They also said they would
commit to a transformation of
the energy sectors in their countries to produce fewer carbon
emissions.
The word decarbonization
implies the replacement of carbon-based fossil fuels by alternative sources such as wind and solar
power. The statement did not
specify full decarbonization,
and the term is open to interpretations that include the use of some
fossil fuels. It also does not mean
the elimination of nuclear power.

Acknowledging military setbacks,


President Barack Obama said
Monday the United States still
lacks a complete strategy for
training Iraqi forces to fight the
Islamic State. He urged Iraqs government to allow more of the
nations Sunnis to join the campaign against the violent militants.
Nearly one year after American
troops started returning to Iraq to
assist local forces, Obama said the
Islamic State remains nimble,
aggressive and opportunistic. He
touted significant progress in
areas where the U.S. has trained
Iraqis to fight but said forces without U.S. assistance are often illequipped and suffer from poor
morale.
IS fighters captured the key Anbar
provincial capital of Ramadi last
month,
prompting
Defense
Secretary Ash Carter to lament that
Iraqi troops lacked the will to
fight. That was a strikingly negative assessment of a military that
has been the beneficiary of billions
in U.S. assistance dating back to
the war started during the administration of U.S. President George. W.
Bush in 2003.
Still, Obama indicated that simply increasing the number of
Americans in Iraq would not resolve
the countrys issues. The U.S. currently has about 3,000 troops there
for train-and-assist missions.
Weve got more training capacity than we have recruits, he said at
the close of a two-day Group of

Seven meeting
at a luxury resort
tucked in the
Bavarian Alps.
G-7
leaders
invited
Iraqi
Prime Minister
Haider al-Abadi
to join them
for
Barack Obama Monday
talks on the
security situation in the Middle
East. Obama and Abadi also met
one-on-one shortly before the president departed for Washington.
In both public and private,
Obama urged Abadi and his Shiiteled government to allow more
Sunnis to fight the Islamic State.
The White House has long blamed
Iraqs sectarian divisions for stoking the kind of instability that
allowed the militants to thrive.
Weve seen Sunni tribes who are
not only willing and prepared to
fight ISIL, but have been successful
at rebuffing ISIL, Obama said by
the U.S. government. But it has
not been happening as fast as it
needs to.
In Washington, the highestranking Sunni in Iraqs government
said Sunni tribes are still receiving
insufficient training and inferior
weapons compared to the national
army. Parliament Speaker Salim alJabouri put the onus for fixing that
on Baghdad, saying it should provide clear assurances that the tribes
will receive the necessary
weapons.
Guarantees create confidence,
and we need confidence, al-Jabouri
told a small group of reporters,
speaking through an interpreter.

Can Marriage Exist Between

Science And Religion?


By Paul Larson
MILLBRAE

Some
say
that
science and religion
dont mix. Some
say that science is
the ultimate search
for God. Some say
religion supersedes
science, some say both have equal stature
and others say both are hogwash. Everyone
has their own personal assessment of the
correlation between science and religion.
The aspiration of religion along with the
aspiration of science is to explain the
universe and answer questions about life, in
addition to satisfying human psychological
needs when dealing with the realities of
death. Religion is based on faith, science is
based on observation, and both are based on
human curiosity and the need to find
answers. Whether a person is repetitively
reading religious scripture, or fascinated by
repeatable scientific experimentations, both
are searching for methods that answer
questions about the universe around us.
It can be debated that early humans
turned to religion as a way to alleviate their
fears and gain reassurance with the concept
of life after death. This helped to give them
a sense of order in a confusing world that
often seemed mysterious.
Eventually
scientific realization evolved along side
religion and the process of trial and error
established itself as a way to solve some of
these mysteries. Firethe wheelfarming.
The more humans observed the world they
lived in, the more they leaned how the
natural world worked and how they could
manipulate it to their advantage. Over the
centuries religious power came at odds with
scientific discovery, which led to a period of

scientific stagnation: The Dark Ages.


Later at the dawn of The Renaissance
science was again embraced leading to great
advances in art, architecture, medicine,
astronomy and other natural sciences. Over
the ages science and religion have been
evolving together on a roller coaster ride of
acceptance, denial and equilibrium.
We now appear to be at a crossroads
where religion is not only viewing science
with an evaluative broadmindedness, but is
exploring hand in hand with scientific
processes.
One prime example is the
Vaticans
Pontifical
Academy
of
Sciences. Quoting John Paul II: ...today
eminent scientists are members a visible
sign of the profound harmony that can
exist between the truths of science and the
truths of faith.... Gregor Mendel, the father
of Genetics, was an Augustinian Friar.
Georges Lemaitre, who developed much of
the Big Bang Theory, was a Belgian priest.
Recently, Pope Francis, who has a Masters
Degree in Chemistry, insisted that there is
no reason to believe that science and God
are incompatible.
With all this in mind, every human being
is unique as a fingerprint, and every human
brain has its own unique consciousness.
Whether you analyze with your religious cap
or your science cap, matrimony between the
two could be found by looking inward. So,
close your eyes, examine your deep
thoughts, and you may detect a rational
enlightenment finely attuned to both.

funeral matters or want to make preplanning arrangements please feel free to

Letters to the editor


Just the facts
Editor,
At a recent Foster City Council
meeting I asked everyone to make
their decisions and conclusions based
on fact, not emotion. To make logical
and conscientious decisions I must
know all aspects of the issue, good or
bad.
There is an issue being discussed and
published about the cost of and need
for additional bocce ball courts. There
are arguments being made that this is a
$1 million boondoggle and other uses
of the funds would better serve the residents of Foster City.
I want to give you some correct facts
so that you could make the same logical decisions that I have made.
The specic project includes removing lawn on the south side of the
Recreation Center from the Stilt
Walker statue to the Teen Center
(Vibe). This grass will be replaced
with drought-tolerant landscaping saving about 300,000 gallons of water.
The project will completely refurbish
the two existing courts and construct
two new courts and lights. This park
refurbishment will also include the
addition of a picnic area with picnic
tables and benches.
The cost is scheduled to be around
$900,000 but will funded via park-inlieu fees paid by the Foster Square
Development. There will also be some
grants to help pay for the costs. This
project will bring much needed recreational opportunities to the many new
senior residents who will occupy
Foster Square directly across the street
as well as the entire community.

Bicycles on the
electrified Caltrain
Editor,
As a frequent Caltrain rider, Im convinced that an electried Caltrain is a
cornerstone of the Bay Areas future
transportation plans.
In recent years, the number of bicycle bumps has grown alarmingly.
Despite earlier promises that the electrication project would bring relief,
Im disappointedtohear theres no
proposaltoincrease bicycle capacity
on the electried Caltrain. This worries me greatly not only for my
own commute, but especially for
Caltrains long-term business model.
Bicycle ridership constitutes a quickly
increasing percentage of its customer
base. Furthermore, Caltrains
abilitytocarry bicycles takes cars off
the road and relieves overcrowded bus
lines.
Im certainly aware of the
needtobalance various groups of rid-

ers when planning its business, and I


understand that Caltrain frequently
nds itself in a predicament as a result.
Nevertheless, I urge Caltraintogreatly
increase bicycle carrying capacity on
the electried system. Increasing
future bicycle capacity on Caltrain
does not just benet its bicycle-riding
customers. The improved trafc and
environmental factors that result benet all of society, while Caltrain will
nd that bicycle riders can be its
strongest advocates and most loyal
customers.

Increase Caltrain bike capacity


Editor,
Caltrain is fundamental when I consider public transportation options for
my standard commute to San
Francisco.I appreciate having my
bike on Caltrain to address the rst
and last mile; otherwise, I would have
to rely upon driving.
I was informed that staffs recommending the same bike capacity as
today for electried service in 2020.
While bike support in 2015 is far better than back in 2009 when I regularly
started using Caltrain for my commute,
I still get bumped. In fact, I can only
guarantee that Ill be able to take my
bike if: (a) I commute outside of standard commute hours and (b) there is no
S.F. Giants game.
With growth estimations as they
are, 2020 must certainly presume signicant increases in Caltrain adoption
for daily commutes. Even if there was
no increase in adoption, we would still
need perhaps another bike car on the
train.
It would be ideal if Caltrain could
increase its bike capacity to at least 20
percent, when addressing the capacity
of electried trains.

Is Rand Paul having his Patrick
Henry moment? Hes already alienated
big money Republicans like Sheldon
Adelson with his rather reasonable foreign policy positions regarding Israel,
Syria, Iraq and such. Now hes being
accused of grandstanding on unworkable principles and ignoring what the
establishment sees as grown up
positions involving ever increasing
workloads for our military in trying to
maintain the American corporate market share in the worlds nancial and
business sphere. Boy, is he impractical. Now he even puts the Democrats
to shame in resisting their president in

Unfortunately we have a Constitution

While I dont agree with Rand Paul on
much of anything he has to say on

in stopping the march to military

hes thrown a monkey wrench in the

Home crisis
Editor,
Thankfully, a spotlight is being
focused on the housing crisis in San
Mateo County. As many of your
thoughtful readers know, there are
many workers in this county who are
forced to endure long commutes to
maintain employment here. Even
folks who were born here are nding
that rents are unaffordable and homes
unattainable.
The core problem is that housing
prices have been rising rapidly for the
last several years. This forces people
to look elsewhere for homes. And statistics show that many groups are
under-represented in home ownership.
This is unfair and the establishment of
a Home Affordability Bureau is
inevitable.
The bureau will provide outreach and
subsidies for those who nd the cost
of purchasing a home on the peninsula
to be a challenge. These means tested
subsidies will provide a fair and nondiscriminatory way for people to live
in San Mateo County. One of the proposals for funding the bureau will be
to levy a surcharge to a home seller
equal to the selling price minus the
2011 appraised value of the home to
be offset by an annual 4 percent annual
increase (a fair and reasonable
amount). Also, HUD will offer some
funding as well. Another idea would be
to levy the surcharge upon the passing
away of the owner. This will avoid
forcing an existing homeowner to
relocate.
It about time that we fairly address
the home crisis in our midst.

Your outlook can


shape the world

s long as you can see your vision, dream and


purpose your capacity to accomplish that
endeavor cannot be tainted by those around
you who cannot see it. That is what I said to a high
school graduating class in a commencement speech at my
former high school last Friday. I discussed the importance
of having a vision and fearlessly pursuing that vision
with ambition, hard work and compassion. I reminded the
graduates of the movers and shakers throughout history
such as Nelson Mandela, Susan B. Anthony, the Wright
brothers and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who fearlessly
and successfully pursued what many called impossible
endeavors.
As I returned to my seat after
being received by the crowd of
students and parents, one of the
graduating students approached
me. Good speech, he said,
but what does that do for the
job prospects of my classmates? Before I could answer,
he continued to elaborate on
many of the struggles facing his
classmates, such as the
prospects of a mountain of student loan debt and a weak job
Jonathan Madison
market. His discouraging rhetoric reminded me of the same negative outlooks constantly
amplied by news networks like CNN, MSNBC and Fox
News. His next sentiment was more meaningful, You
start to wonder if it is possible to successfully achieve our
dreams in this society. I told him that his answer to that
question would ultimately determine whether his dream is
possible that everything must be tied to outlook.
The reality is that in our childhood, our peers often call
our dreams funny and cute. That quickly changes when we
become adults. We eventually get questions about how we
are going to accomplish our goals and whether our aspirations are in fact possible. When you combine the doubtful
prospects of our peers and relatives about our chances of
success in our career ambitions with the constant negative
economic outlook projected by news and social media, the
end result is often a high school graduate with the hopeless sentiments expressed above.
As you are no doubt aware, we are constantly inundated
with discouraging and unsettling news about ongoing
wars, poor job prospects, rising gas prices, rising homicide rates and devastation in communities. This often
makes us feel hopeless to make a difference even in our
own lives.
I continually try to remind myself to look for the good
happening in our society amidst all of the negativity perpetuated by our media. We often hear about the rising
crime trend, but are less frequently reminded about the fact
that nationally, this decade marks one of the lowest crime
rates on record. We are constantly reminded of the inequalities that minorities face with regard to post-graduate education, but are seldom informed about scholastic institutions producing record numbers of college-bound graduates of color. Take for example Urban Prep Academies a
predominantly African-American charter high school in
Chicago that has produced a 100 percent graduation and
college acceptance rate for each of its students for the last
decade.
During the ve-year period following the Great
Recession of 2008, we were constantly reminded of the
record high unemployment rate which peaked at more than
10 percent. To no surprise, we are seldom reminded about
the current unemployment rate of 5.4 percent a relatively low number given the trend in the last decade.
I do not suggest that disparities, hardships and tragedies
are non-existent we hear and read about them every day.
I contend that we possess within each of us the ability to
make a better life for ourselves and for those that we love
based on our outlook.
Just as it is important to consistently keep up with current events both uplifting and discouraging, it is equally
important to develop a capacity to see hope through darkness, and have faith through the endless challenges we
face in life.
The reality is that none of the historic movers and shakers I referred to earlier would have accomplished their
remarkable achievements without having the courage to

NEW YORK The Dow Jones industrial average slipped into the red for the
year on Monday as stocks extended
their slump.
Airlines were among the biggest losers amid concern that capacity growth
in the industry may curb profitability.
JetBlue Airways, American Airlines and
Delta Air Lines were among the carriers
that declined.
Stocks have sagged in the past two
weeks as investors try to assess if
Federal Reserve policymakers will raise
their benchmark interest rate later this
year for the first time since the recession. A stronger-than-forecast jobs
report on Friday suggested that the
economy is recovering from its winter
slump.
The Fed has kept its benchmark interest rate unchanged at close to zero for
more than six years to help support
lending and boost the economy. Those
low rates have also boosted the stock
market in that time, pushing it to record
levels.
The market is suggesting that if the
data continue at this pace, the Fed will
be more inclined to raise rates in
September, rather than waiting, said
Quincy Krosby, a market strategist at
Prudential Financial.
The Standard & Poors 500 index

dropped 13.55 points, or 0.7 percent,


to 2,079.28. The Dow fell 82.91
points, or 0.5 percent, to 17,766.55,
giving it a loss of 0.3 percent for 2015.
The Nasdaq composite declined 46.83
points, or 0.9 percent, to 5,021.63.
On Monday, slumped as industry
executives met in Miami for the
International Air Transportation
groups annual general meeting.
American Airlines CEO Doug Parker
told Reuters at the meeting Sunday that
he was worried that growth in airline
capacity could depress profits.
Brokerage Raymond James cut its
earnings forecasts for American
Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United
Continental. The firm said in a note
that softer economic growth would
mean that airlines would struggle to
raise fares as much as they had previously anticipated during the stronger
summer months.
American Airlines was among the
leading decliners in the S&P 500, dropping $1.86, or 4.5 percent, to $39.86.
Delta Air Lines, United, Southwest
Airlines and JetBlue also fell.
The drop for airlines extended a theme
of weakness for the transport sector.
The Dow Jones Transportation average is down almost 9 percent this year,
a slump that is giving a potentially
worrying signal about the economy
even as hiring picks up. A drop in transport companies could mean that fewer

goods are being transported by boat,


plane or rail, suggesting that demand
remains weak six years after the end of
the recession.
You do want to see transport stocks
gaining, said Prudentials Krosby. It
would lend confirmation (to expectations) that the economy is gaining that
crucial momentum that we have been
waiting for.
Talks between Greece and its creditors
have been deadlocked since late last
week, when Greek Prime Minister
Alexis Tsipras rejected as unacceptable
a proposal made by the three institutions overseeing the countrys bailout:
the European Central Bank, the
International Monetary Fund and the
European Commission.
A resolution to the talks is needed by
June 30, when Greeces emergency
financing program ends. Without fresh
funds, Greece is unlikely to be able to
repay its debts and could end up crashing out of the euro. Jitters over Greeces
financial future have been a cloud over
markets in recent days, notably in
Germany, where the DAX index is down
more than 10 percent from its April
peak.
The Wall Street Journal reported that
Greeces creditors have suggested
extending the countrys bailout program until the end of March 2016. The
report cited people familiar with negotiations.

Do more jobs mean more economic security? Not for some in U.S.
By Josh Boak
and Christopher S. Rugaber
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The U.S. economy is


churning out a lot of jobs these days but not
a lot of financial security for many of the
people who hold them.
Pay growth, though improving, remains
tepid. Many workers have few opportunities to advance. Others have taken temporary, part-time or freelance jobs, with little
chance of landing full-time permanent work
with benefits.
As a result, many jobs dont deliver as
much economic punch as they used to. Part
of the reason is that U.S. workers have
grown less efficient in recent months.
When they produce less per hour of work,

their earnings power shrinks. So the economy doesnt fully benefit from the fuel that
healthy job growth normally provides.
The result is a disconnect between the
high number of job gains and a nagging dissatisfaction among some, both job holders
and job seekers.
Lena Allison lost her job as a privateschool kindergarten teacher in layoffs in
September. Allison, 54, of Los Angeles has
since worked temp jobs and struggled to
find permanent work. Online job listings,
she says, have made it hard to get face-toface interviews.
More people may be working jobs, but
theyre like these serial part-time jobs,
she said. Theyre not life-supporting
jobs.
Allisons experiences, shared by mil-

lions of other workers, contrast with the


economic momentum suggested by the May
jobs report released Friday. The government
added a solid 280,000 jobs. The unemployment rate ticked up slightly to 5.5 percent,
but for a positive reason: More people
decided to start seeking a job, and some didnt find one.
Hiring surged in the health care, retail,
construction and hospitality and leisure
sectors. Many analysts and investment
managers cheered as average hourly wages
rose at an annual rate of 2.3 percent from
2.2 percent in April, slightly ahead of inflation.
Not only are the labor markets stronger
today than at any point in the past 20 years,
but we are beginning to see the start of
broad-based wage growth, Rick Rieder,

chief investment officer for fundamental


fixed income at BlackRock, said in a client
note.
That declaration is rooted in the economic data. But it would surprise many
Americans.
Nearly half of Americans say they couldnt afford an emergency expense of $400
without borrowing or selling something
they own, according to a survey released by
the Federal Reserve. A striking 60 percent
of those surveyed said they expect to go
without a pay raise over the next 12
months.
Ben McBratney, 25, accepted a job in
tech support last month at a Chicago payments company his third job since graduating from college with a computer science
degree in 2012.

Justices to review Tyson Foods appeal over class-action suit


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The Supreme Court


agreed Monday to weigh new limits on the
ability of workers to band together to dispute pay and workplace issues.
The justices said they will review a $5.8
million class-action judgment against
Tyson Foods Inc. over the pay for more
than 3,000 workers at its Storm Lake, Iowa,
pork processing plant.
The case could allow the high court to

elaborate on its 2011 decision blocking a


massive sex-discrimination case against
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. that would have
included up to 1.6 million female workers.
Tyson, the Springdale, Arkansas-based
company, said it should not have been
forced to defend a class-action lawsuit that
claims it failed to pay employees for time
spent putting on and taking off work
clothes and equipment.
A federal appeals court in St. Louis ruled
2-1 for the workers.

Tyson argues that lower courts should not


have allowed statistics to determine damages for the entire class based on average
times observed in a sample of workers from
the class. The company calls that a trialby-formula that the high court rejected in
the Wal-Mart case.
The company also says the lower courts
improperly allowed the class to include
hundreds of members who were not injured
and would receive no damages in an individual lawsuit.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs say courts have


used representative proof to allow class
actions to go forward for nearly 70 years.
Tyson has faced similar litigation around
the country. In 2010, it settled a decadelong dispute with the U.S. Department of
Labor by agreeing to pay workers at some
poultry plants for time they spent putting
on and taking off protective clothing.
The case, Tyson Foods v. Bouaphakeo,
14-1146, will be argued when the courts
new term begins in the fall.

LeBron, Cavs recover after tying Finals


By Tom Withers
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KELLEY L. COX/USA TODAY SPORTS

LeBron James played 50 minutes in the Cavs


overtime victory over the Warriors Sunday.

CLEVELAND Once LeBron James tied


up the NBA Finals with another one of his
virtuoso postseason performances, his legs
were in knots.
He needed ice, treatment and rest. He wasnt the only one.
After a pair of entertaining, exhausting,
drama-filled overtime games at Golden State,
everyone players, fans, even the refs
needed a day to take a breather and recover
before the Cavaliers and Warriors resume a

series getting stellar TV ratings and shifting


to Quicken Loans Arena for Game 3 on
Tuesday night.
As midnight approached in California following Clevelands stunning 95-93 OT win
on Sunday night, James, who scored 39
points with 16 rebounds and 11 assists, grimaced as he lifted himself from a chair on the
postgame interview dais. He was hurting
after playing 50 methodical minutes, one
game after going 46.
James, incredibly, believes he can give
more.
Its a maximum of five games left in the

NBA season, he said. So Im ready for


whatever.
He has been all season.
With James leading the way, the Cavaliers,
who were already a heavy underdog before
losing All-Star guard Kyrie Irving to a broken left kneecap in the opener, dragged down
the Warriors and Stephen Curry, the leagues
MVP.
Hounded by Cavs guard Matthew
Dellavedova, who seemed to be inside his
jersey, Curry missed 18 of 23 shots and ended

exception to my prediction that if the
Warriors held the Cavs under 100 points
they would win.
What I will stand by, however, is the
fact that the NBA Finals is hardly over.
This one still has a very good chance of
going seven games
and the Warriors
still have a very
good chance of winning it all. What
Game 2 proved is
that even with the

Cleveland can overcome adversity after

Lets play three: Post 82 plays three games in one day


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

After falling to the losers bracket


Saturday in the San Leandro Wood Bat
Tourney, the San Mateo American Legion
Post 82 Shockers were faced with having to
win four games in one day to claim the
championship.
The Shockers fell one game shy of their
goal, but still played a triple-header in
advancing to the championship round. The
host San Leandro Ports took the title

though, walking off against Post 82 with a


7-6, extra-inning win in the finale.
All told, the Shockers played 22 innings
Sunday, with wins in the two previous
games. It was the only baseball triple-header Shockers coach Rick Lavezzo could recall
being a party to, he said.
It was like a mens softball schedule,
Lavezzo said.
The day started off auspiciously enough in
the days opener as two Shockers pitchers
combined on a no-hitter in a 3-1 win over
Antioch All-Pro.

Matt Stevens earned the win, firing five


no-hit innings while allowing just one run.
David Hermann saved it with two innings of
relief. In his first start of the summer,
Stevens five-inning outing matched his
longest of the high school season as a senior at Burlingame.
He pitched out of this world, Lavezzo
said. He pitched great but (we went to
Hermann because) he was getting tired.
There was no celebration following the
game as no one realized it was a no-hitter,
Lavezzo said. It wasnt until Lavezzo looked

at the scorebook later Sunday afternoon that


he recognized the feat.
Even if the Shockers had known of the nono, there was little time to celebrate amid
the turn-and-burn format of the tourneys
final day. They played all three games consecutively with just 30 minutes break in
between.
We had no choice really, Lavezzo said.
And what are the kids supposed to say? We
dont want to play?

Lightning rolls, takes 2-1 Giants draft flamethrowing Bickford


lead in Stanley Cup finals
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

By Jay Cohen
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO Victor Hedman had


two assists for Tampa Bay while
playing stout defense on Chicagos
top forwards and the Lightning beat
the Blackhawks 3-2 in Game 3 of the
Stanley Cup Final on Monday night.
Ryan Callahan, Ondrej Palat and
Cedric Paquette scored as Tampa
Bay used its second straight win to
take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven
series. Ben Bishop made 36 saves
in a gutsy performance after he was
questionable coming into the
game. Game 4 is Wednesday night.
Brad Richards and Brandon Saad
scored for Chicago, and Corey
Crawford finished with 29 stops.
The third consecutive one-goal
game in the final was tied at 1 after
two periods, and then tied again
after the teams exchanged goals in
a 13-second burst in the third. But
Hedman helped the Lightning take
the lead for good when he skated
into the corner and made a perfect
pass to Paquette in the middle for
his third goal of the playoffs with
3:11 remaining, silencing the
United Center crowd.
Bishop and company held up
down the stretch as the Lightning
improved to 8-3 on the road in the
playoffs.
Tampa Bay wasted a chance to go
in front in the second after Saad was
whistled for goaltenders interference, creating a 5-on-3 opportunity. Bishop, who was a game-time
decision with some sort of issue
left over from Game 2, was shaken
up on the collision, but stayed in

the
net.

Marian Hossa made a slick pass to
set up Saads seventh goal at 4:14 of
the third, giving the Blackhawks a
2-1 lead. But the Lightning came
right down and scored when Palat
stuffed in a rebound for his eighth of
the playoffs.
After nearly two days worth of
speculation, Bishop led the
Lightning out of the tunnel for
warmups and got the start in goal.
He participated in the morning
skate, but there was no definitive
word on his status until he was
announced as the starter right
before the game.
The 6-foot-7 Bishop left two different times during the third period
of Tampa Bays 4-3 victory in
Game 2 on Saturday night. The
team has not provided a reason for
his twin departures, but he
appeared to be dealing with some
sort of groin or leg injury as he
struggled to get up and down for
much of the night.
The Lightning got the first goal
for the fourth straight time when

But the Shockers rolled into the
second game of the day and rode a
big performance by Calvin Riley.
The shortstop out of Serra totaled
three hits at the plate. Then on the
mound, he emerged in the sixth
inning in relief of winning pitcher
Joe Pratt and tabbed the save in a 76 win over the Alameda Tritons.
[Riley] is an important piece of
our team, Lavezzo said.
In advancing to the championship round, the Shockers were
starting to feel the fatigue of the
long day.
When you play that third game,
and youre on that 14th at-bat, its
kind of tough to swing the bat,
Lavezzo said.
Felix Aberouette didnt let the
fatigue get to him though. After

the tourney. Had there been a fourth

White Sox off to 4-0 start

The trick was, the White Sox had

That was the challenge for us,
Souza said. Us playing two games,
and each of them only playing

The White Sox breezed through
the competition though, downing
the Warriors 10-0 in the opener
before defeating the Seals 8-1 in the

Aragon graduate Kevin Hahn
worked five innings to earn the win
over the Warriors. Then in the
finale, Aldo Severson threw five

while striking out 11 to notch the
victory. The only hit Severson surrendered was an infield knock.
With the doubleheader sweep, the
White Sox improve their record to

Brendan Rodgers at No. 3 overall.
A fourth shortstop went 10th, with
Philadelphia selecting Georgia high schooler Cornelius Randolph. A record-tying eight
shortstops were selected in the first round
(36 picks), matching the number that were
taken in 1971 and 2002.
Swanson,
who helped lead the
Commodores to the College World Series
earlier in the day, was the first college shortstop to be the top pick since Bill Almon
from Brown University in 1974.
I think it sounds pretty good, a smiling
Swanson said in an interview on MLB
Network.
It marked the first time the Diamondbacks

Justin Upton in 2005.
Swanson seamlessly switched from second
base to shortstop this season as a junior. He
was the Most Outstanding Player at the
College World Series last year, helping the
Commodores to the national championship.
Swanson is a finalist for the Golden Spikes
Award and Howser Trophy, given to college

CINCINNATI The Phillies have signed
right-hander Kevin Correia to a one-year deal,
filling their open rotation spot with a veteran
who has spent the season in the minors.
Right-hander Severino Gonzalez was sent
to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday after
going 2-2 with an 8.69 ERA in five starts.
The 34-year-old Correia has pitched for

It was the 50th anniversary of the first draft
in 1965, and the first for new Commissioner
Rob Manfred, who took over when Bud Selig
retired in January.
I actually was going to call him on the
way out here and I got tied up, Manfred said,
minutes before stepping to the podium to
begin announcing the first-round selections.
So I didnt get any advice. I think I can get
through it.
The Astros received the No. 2 pick as compensation for not signing pitcher Brady
Aiken, last years top pick. Aiken was taken
by Cleveland at No. 17 despite having
Tommy John surgery in March.
Bregman is the offensive leader of an LSU
team that will play in the College World
Series and has been ranked No. 1 in the country in several polls for most of the season.
The Golden Spikes Award finalist is hitting
.312 with nine homers and 49 RBIs, and has
stolen 37 bases.
Houston kept things in the family at No.
5, taking Florida high school outfielder Kyle
Tucker, the younger brother of Astros outfielder Preston Tucker. He broke his brothers
school record with 31 career homers.
With the first pick of the second round, the
Astros went for another player with baseball
bloodlines by taking Georgia high school
outfielder Daz Cameron, son of former AllStar Mike Cameron.
California high school third baseman
Tyler Nevin, the son of 1992 No. 1 overall
pick Phil Nevin, went next to Colorado.

Texas high school third baseman KeBryan


Hayes, son of former big leaguer Charlie
Hayes, went 32nd overall to Pittsburgh.
Rodgers was the first of four players in
attendance to have his name called by
Manfred, shaking hands with the commissioner while slipping on a Rockies cap and
jersey.
Rodgers, from Lake Mary High School,
was widely regarded as the best prep player in
the draft. He has power to all fields, soft
hands and good range at shortstop.
The other three prospects in attendance
also got selected in the first round: New York
high school outfielder Garrett Whitley went
13th to Tampa Bay; Indiana high school
righty Ashe Russell was picked 21st by
Kansas City; and Pennsylvania high school
right-hander Mike Nikorak was the No. 27
selection by Colorado.
UC Santa Barbara fireballing right-hander
Dillon Tate was chosen by Texas with the
fourth pick, giving the Rangers a potential
staff ace or late-inning reliever. He was one
of the best closers in the country last year,
and established himself as an outstanding
starter this season for the Gauchos.
At No. 6, Minnesota drafted Illinois closer
Tyler Jay, a lefty who could be a starter at the
next level because of his excellent command
of four pitches. He took the loss after starting in the Illinis season-ending loss to
Vanderbilt shortly before he was drafted.
Arkansas outfielder Andrew Benintendi
(Red Sox), Fulmer, Cincinnati outfielder Ian
Happ (Cubs) and Randolph rounded out the
top 10. Georgia high school catcher Tyler
Stephenson, who some thought was in the
mix for the No. 1 pick, went 11th to
Cincinnati.
College of Southern Nevada right-hander
Phil Bickford was drafted 18th by San
Francisco after failing to sign with Toronto
in 2013 when he was the No. 10 pick.

TCU wins in 16 innings to advance to College World Series

Crain scored from second base on
an error in the 16th inning and TCU
is going to the College World
Series for the second year in a row
after a 5-4 win over Texas A&M in a
game that ended early Tuesday
morning.
Crain drew a leadoff walk off Ryan
Hendrix (6-4), the third time in
extra innings TCUs No. 9 hitter led
off and got on base. He got to second on a wild pitch with two outs,
and scored when Evan Skoug hit a
hard chopper on which third baseman Ronnie Gideon made a backhanded try.
The ball was briefly in his glove,
and Skoug was credited with a single. But Crain rounded third with
the ball on the ground and scored as
Gideon threw wildly to the plate.

Defamationlawsuit Safety concerns after injury to Fenway fan


filed by McDonald
dismissed by judge
By Howard Ulman

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN JOSE A California judge has dismissed a defamation lawsuit filed by former
San Francisco 49er Ray McDonald against a
woman who accused him of rape.
McDonald failed to produce any admissible
evidence that the woman had spoken to anyone other than law enforcement officials
about her accusations, and statements to
police are considered protected speech, Santa
Clara County Superior Court Judge William
Elfving said in the ruling last week.
A call to McDonalds attorney, Steve
Defilippis, was not immediately returned.
Gloria Allred, who is representing the
woman, said the ruling sent a message to NFL
players and other celebrities that defamation
suits against people who report crimes to
authorities are a losing strategy.
The woman says McDonald carried her
upstairs to his bedroom in December 2014
and sexually assaulted her.
She has filed a lawsuit against McDonald
alleging assault and battery, negligence,
intentional infliction of emotional distress
and false imprisonment.
Prosecutors are reviewing the case after
police say the woman reported she doesnt
recall any sexual encounters after drinking
alcohol, falling and blacking out at
McDonalds home.
She said she went to police after waking up
next to McDonald.
McDonald says security camera footage
will show a consensual sexual encounter
occurred in his hot tub.
The 49ers released McDonald in December,
citing a pattern of poor decision-making.
The Chicago Bears released McDonald in
May after he was arrested at a San Jose home
on suspicion of assaulting his ex-fiancee.

Janzen back in the U.S. Open
Two-time champion Lee Janzen finally

across the country.
Janzen had scores of 69-68 at Old Oaks and
Century to earn the first of four spots available in the sectional qualifier in New York.

BOSTON Erik Barnard sat with his 3year-old son along Fenway Parks third-base
line, a few sections from where a woman was
seriously injured when a broken bat flew into
the stands two days earlier.
He never considered surrendering those
front-row seats that arent guarded by netting. But he would be sure to protect little
Christopher.
Ill definitely be watching out for him
and putting him on my lap, Barnard said
before Sundays game between the Athletics
and Red Sox.
Its a delicate balance for fans throughout
the major leagues: weighing the danger of
being hit by a wayward bat or ball against the
enhanced experience of being so close to the
action, few closer than at cozy Fenway.
Over the past three days, bats have flown
into the stands in at least three cities. Yet
fans consider the risk of injury minimal.
Id absolutely sit down here. Why not?
said 38-year-old Doug Jones, who was in the
front row along the third-base line in Boston
on Sunday, but you need to pay attention.
On Friday night, 44-year-old Tonya
Carpenter was struck in the head by a bat that
broke on a swing by Oaklands Brett Lawrie
in the second inning of Bostons 4-2 win.
She was treated in the stands then rushed
to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
with what police described as life-threatening injuries. Her condition has been upgraded from serious to fair condition, her family
said Monday in a statement released by the
hospital.
The well-being of Tonya and her loved
ones are forefront in our minds, the Red Sox
said Monday. Major League Baseball will
re-examine fan safety at ballparks, and we
will fully participate in that process.

Parents sometimes arrange seating with their
children between them. Others said they
dont consider safety when buying tickets.
At most major league parks, the netting
that protects fans from foul balls covers the
backstop behind the catcher, but stops
before each dugout. Some fans said they
would sit closer to the field if the netting
were extended.
But that net might decrease a fans enjoyment of the sights and sounds the lush
green grass, the smack of the ball into the
catchers glove on a perfect afternoon for
baseball like Sunday, sunny and warm with a
slight breeze at historic Fenway.
I do understand the objection of having
something in front of you, said 42-year-old
Chad LeBlanc, who attended Sundays game
with his 12-year-old son Logan.
Another fan, Jeremy Welford, said he was
more conscious of the risk after Fridays
injury.
If youre with a youngster, its too dangerous, he said with his 9-year-old daughter
Megan beside him. I sit behind the nets all
the time and it doesnt bother me.
The backs of tickets tell fans to remain
alert.
At Fenway, about a dozen signs facing fans
in the front row of box seats warn red and
white capital letters: BE ALERT FOUL
BALLS AND BATS HURT.
Also facing them along that low wall are
about twice as many televisions they can
watch while a batter is swinging.
At Miamis game at Colorado on Sunday,

Mike and Erin Hart, both adult league softball players, sat just above the third-base
dugout, one of the best spots at Coors Field
to catch foul balls. Their two children were
with them.
We figured wed put them in the middle,
because then we could protect them a little bit
better, Erin said. We brought our gloves. I
figured if were not fast enough, we can dive
on top of them if need be.
No matter how vigilant, fans do turn away
from the action to snap a selfie, fill in a
scorecard or hail a hot dog vendor.
At Kansas Citys game against Texas,
Royals fan Candace Hickman said, I wish
the Royals would expand the netting to at
least the end of the dugouts to protect the
fans better from foul balls. Even if you are
watching closely, those line drives can reach
the seats in a split second.
In Chicago, Ray Finfer sat with his three
sons when Adam LaRoches bat went into the
stands Sunday.
I saw the bat coming and my thought is
hopefully youre watching the game. he
said. If youre not going to do that, its not
a great seat for you.
In Toronto, Karen Luscombe, sat behind
the third-base dugout with her son.
I worry about it, for sure, she said, but
the best view is where we want to sit.
In Cincinnati, Laura Steinmetz Hawke usually sits in the upper deck for the price and
the view, not for safety reasons.
There is inherent risk in living life, and
we cannot make every experience 100 percent safe, she said.
And at Fenway, Francesca Cirillo sat with
her husband and 18-month-old daughter Aria
about 10 rows behind the spot where the fan
was injured Friday night.
I feel horrible for her, she said but called
what happened a freak accident and wasnt
uncomfortable sitting so close to the field.
We brought our daughter, she said. We
had the opportunity to leave her at home, but
we decided to bring her because this is the
first time Im able to bring her to Fenway.

as Curry passed midcourt, forcing him into hurried decisions


as he dribbles for his life.
The Cavaliers played that style to a T Sunday and it threw
off the Warriors game plan much as New Orleans did.
We will find out tonight if the Warriors make the same
adjustment they did against the Pelicans.
But Curry is hardly alone in this challenge. Sunday, the
entire team save Klay Thompson was off their game.
Center Andrew Bogut almost seems scared to even have the
ball in his hands in an offensive position. Meanwhile, his
Cleveland counterpart, Timofey Mozgov, is dominating in
the post. The Warriors need to get Bogut more involved in
the offense, something that has him moving aggressively
toward the basket. The alley-oop off the pick and roll has
been Boguts bread and butter this season. There was none
of that Sunday.
Draymond Green, for everything he brings to the squad,
has struggled with his shot and can get out of control at
times. Mo Speights looked tentative Sunday, backup center
Festus Ezeli was out of sorts.
Game 2 was just an all-around bad game for Golden State.
And yet they still only lost by a bucket in overtime. I
think that has to be one of the positives the Warriors take
from Game 2: despite an off night, they still had a chance to
win it at the end. That can only help going forward.

But I had never really watched him closely until now.
Sure, I had seen him play the finals with Cleveland and

Plainly put, the man is a beast in all aspects of the game.
He almost single-handedly won Game 1 for the Cavs and,
when that didnt work, he simply dropped a triple-double in

Sure, he gets away with a lot. He throws shoulders and

President Obama: Court


shouldnt have considered
health care law challenge
By Jim Kuhnhenn and Nedra Pickler
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ELMAU, Germany With a crucial legal


decision looming, President Barack Obama
said Monday the Supreme Court should not
even have considered the latest challenge to
his signature health care law but he voiced
confidence the justices will play it
straight and leave the law intact.
Obama weighed in on the merits of the
case against the five-year-old Affordable
Care Act as the high court prepares to
announce a decision sometime later this
month that could wipe out health insurance
for millions of people.
Wrapping up a two-day international summit Monday, Obama told reporters there was
no reason for the health program to end up
in court, maintaining that the thing is
working.
Frankly, it probably shouldnt even
have been taken up, he said.
The remark was a direct and provocative
challenge to a court that holds the fate of
one of Obamas top legislative achievements in its hands. To prevail, Obama needs
the votes of Chief Justice John Roberts or
Justice Anthony Kennedy, one of whom
most likely voted to hear the case in the
first place.
At issue in the case is whether Congress
authorized federal subsidy payments for
health care coverage regardless of where
people live, or only for residents of states
that created their own insurance marketplaces. The decision could have far-reaching implications because nearly 6.4 million low- and moderate-income Americans

could lose coverage if the court said people


who enrolled through the federal site
werent eligible for the subsidies.
Obama says it has been well-documented
that Congress never intended to exclude
people who went through the federal
exchange.
You interpret a statute based on what the
intent and meaning and the overall structure
of the statute provides for, said Obama, a
lawyer who once taught constitutional law.
Pressed in a news conference on whether
he had an alternative if he loses in court,
Obama insisted he had no Plan B. This
would be hard to fix, he said.
But he made it clear that if the court were
to rule against him, then he would place the
political burden directly on the Republicancontrolled Congress, betting that an angry
public would demand a fix.
During oral arguments earlier this year
before the Supreme Court, Justice Antonin
Scalia also suggested that Congress could
easily fix it.
This Congress, your honor? responded
the administrations lawyer, Solicitor
General Donald Verrilli Jr., eliciting ripples
of laughter from observers in the chamber.
Still, most of the health insurance losses
would occur in states governed by
Republicans who have resisted the health
care law and not created state exchanges.
Twenty-six of the 34 states that would be
most affected by the ruling have
Republican governors, and 22 of the 24
GOP Senate seats up in 2016 are in those
states.
As a result, those most affected if the
court blocks subsidies are likely to be con-

Public opinion remains mixed, however.
A recent Washington Post-ABC poll found
that a majority of Americans continue to
oppose the law. But the poll, conducted at
the end of May, also found that 55 percent
of those surveyed dont want the court to
block any subsidies.

position, with an eye toward soon giving
ultimate approval to the budget.
Anticipated hikes in sales and property
tax, which account for about 40 percent of
the citys revenue base, will likely be the
greatest source of prosperity for San Bruno
in the coming year, according to the report.
City Manager Connie Jackson wrote in
the report sales tax revenue is expected to
rise to a new high mark of more than $8.1
million, eclipsing the previous record of
$7.6 million, which the city brought in last
year.
As the economy in and around San Bruno
continues improving, Jackson said in the
report that is reflected in home values, and
property tax revenue to the city.
Economic indicators are showing an
increase in housing values in San Bruno and
across the region, she wrote in the report.
As a result, property tax revenue is beginning to show a gradual increase following
several years of stagnation and decline.

is projected at $7,966,000, an increase of 4


percent from the 2014-15 year-end estimate.
The city is projecting a balanced budget,
with a surplus worth roughly $484,000 after
paying all its bills, according to the report.
Mayor Jim Ruane celebrated the citys
optimistic projection, after struggling
through some lean budget years.
Everything is good for a change, he
said.
But Ruane noted the importance of maintaining a responsible spending strategy,
despite enjoying a more fruitful economic
environment.
We made it through a very bad downturn,
because we were very conservative in our
approach, he said. This has taught us to
be very cautious going forward. We want to
take it one step at a time, and do it right.
Jackson is recommending, as part of the
projected budget, to hire workers in the economic development department, to further
improve the citys ability to take advantage
of the ongoing upswing.
Ruane said he thought it would make
sense to hire employees who would be

city has enjoyed.

Councilman Ken Ibarra agreed, and said
hiring workers who can make the citys
internal processes run more smoothly is
good for business.

Government runs slow. We cant afford to

fixing city streets and sidewalks.
He also suggested hiring more police officers, to add depth to a department which has
been lean in recent years.
Jackson recommended the city consider
hiring another police officer in her report,
which would decrease response time to
emergencies and increase the amount of
officers on patrol at any given time, she
said.
Ultimately, San Bruno is enjoying a
healthy economy and is prepared to make
investments that were not available during
previous, more constrained budget years.
After years of having to make difficult
choices and eliminating jobs and critical
services in order to prepare a balanced budget, the coming year continues the recent
trend toward full economic recovery and
substantial improvement in the citys overall fiscal condition, wrote Jackson.
Ibarra echoed those sentiments.
The trend is better than what we have
seen, he said. And things are going to get
better.

FDA weighs target population


for Amgen cholesterol drug
By Matthew Perrone
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

U.S. physicians must be licensed to practice in the state where they work and requirements
generally include an evaluation of medical education and training, malpractice and discipline
history. Licenses must be renewed yearly or every two years; but no competency exams are
required after initial licensure, regardless of the doctors age.

Aging MDs prompt


call for competency
tests at AMA meeting
By Lindsey Tanner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO With 1 in 4 U.S. doctors


older than 65, the American Medical
Association adopted a plan Monday to help
decide when its time for aging senior
physicians to hang up the stethoscope.
The nations largest organization of doctors agreed to spearhead an effort to create
competency guidelines for assessing
whether older physicians remain able to
provide safe and effective care for patients.
Doctors have no mandatory retirement
age, unlike pilots, military personnel and a
few other professions where mistakes can
be deadly. All doctors must meet state
licensing requirements, and some hospitals
require age-based screening. But there are no
national mandates or guidelines on how to
make sure older physicians can still do their
jobs safely.
The AMA agrees its time to change that.
The plan it adopted is outlined in a report by
one of its councils, which notes that the
number of U.S. physicians aged 65 and older
has quadrupled since 1975 and now numbers
240,000. In a vote without debate, the AMA
agreed to convene groups to collaborate in
developing preliminary assessment guidelines, as recommended in the report. The
report says testing should include an evaluation of physical and mental health and a
review of doctors treatment of patients. It
doesnt specify who would do the assessing
nor how often it would take place.
Unfortunate outcomes may trigger an
evaluation at any age, but perhaps periodic
reevaluation after a certain age such as 70,
when incidence of declines is known to
increase, may be appropriate, the report
says.

Its among more than 250 reports and resolutions prepared for the meeting, where
AMA delegates vote on which proposals
become official AMA policy. The meeting
ends Wednesday.
The AMAs Council on Medical Education
wrote the report and says physicians
should be allowed to remain in practice as
long as patient safety is not endangered.
Developing guidelines and standards for
monitoring and assessing both their own
and their colleagues competency may head
off a call for mandatory retirement ages or
imposition of guidelines by others, the
report says.
Typical age-related changes in hearing,
vision, memory and motor skills all could
potentially affect physicians competence,
the report says, but notes there is no evidence that directly links these changes to
worse outcomes for patients.
While some physicians think they will
know when its time to retire, the report
says evidence disputes that.
Its a touchy topic for older doctors, and
not all welcome the prospect of extra scrutiny.
I dont myself have any doubts about my
competency and I dont need the AMA or
anybody else to test me, said Dr. William
Nyhan, an 89-year-old pediatrician, genetics researcher, runner and tennis player who
works with the University of California,
San Diego and a childrens hospital there.
There are a lot of people overlooking my
activities already, he said. This is a litigious society if we were making mistakes, wed be sued.
Dr. Jack Lewis of Omaha, Nebraska, turns
81 this week and has worked as an internal
medicine specialist for half a century first
with his dad, who worked until age 83, and
now with his 41-year-old physician son.

WASHINGTON Federal health regulators


said Monday a highly-anticipated, experimental drug from Amgen significantly lowers
bad cholesterol. But officials have questions
about who should take the drug and whether to
approve it based on currently available data.
The Food and Drug Administration posted
its review of Amgens Repatha ahead of a public meeting to consider its approval. Repatha
is the part of a new class of injectable, cholesterol-lowing drugs that work differently
than older, statin drugs. The new drugs are
considered the first major advance in lowering
bad, or LDL, cholesterol in more than 20
years, and analysts expect them to generate
billions in sales
But the prospect of approving pricey, new
injectable drugs for one of the most common
medical conditions in America is already
drawing concerns from health insurers,
providers and pharmacy benefits managers.
More than 73 million U.S. adults, or nearly
one-third, have high LDL cholesterol, according to the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention. Those patients have twice the
risk of heart disease.
The FDA is considering which patients
should receive a prescription for drugs like
Repatha.
Amgen Inc., based in Thousand Oaks studied the drug in several different patient
groups, including those already taking
statins, those who cannot take statins due to
side effects, and patients with a rare genetic
disorder that causes extremely high cholesterol levels.
On Wednesday the FDA will ask a panel of
outside experts which patients are most likely to benefit from the drug, considering
potential risks seen in studies, including
higher rates of pancreatitis and kidney problems. The same panel of experts will review a
similar drug from Sanofi on Tuesday.
Both drugs block a substance called
PCSK9, which interferes with the livers ability to remove cholesterol from the blood.
Key to FDAs consideration of both drugs is
whether they ultimately reduce heart attacks

Weve seen lots of drugs that


were touted as wonderful pulled
from the market after large
numbers of people got on them
and it became clear there were side
effects not seen in the initial trials.

medical officer with Express Scripts

and death in patients. For the last 20 years,


the FDA has approved cholesterol drugs based
on their ability to lower levels of the waxlike substance found in the bloodstream.
Studies in older statin drugs have shown this
reduction results in fewer heart problems. But
several drug cases in the last decade have
shown that lowering cholesterol does not
always translate into real benefits for
patients.
Amgen is conducting a 27,500-patient
study to determine whether Repatha reduces
heart attacks, but the results arent expected
before 2017. The FDAs experts will vote on
whether Repatha should be approved despite
the lack of cardiovascular data. The agency is
not required to follow the groups recommendation, though it often does.
Companies that would pay out on those
costs, like insurers, have pointed out the lack
of long-term safety data as a reason to go
slowly.
Weve seen lots of drugs that were touted as
wonderful pulled from the market after large
numbers of people got on them and it became
clear there were side effects not seen in the
initial trials, said Steve Miller, chief medical
officer with Express Scripts, the nations
largest pharmacy benefit manager.
Express Scripts has been one of the most
vocal critics of escalating prices for specialty
drugs, an issue that recently came to a head
with the $1,000-a-pill price tag for Gilead
Sciences hepatitis C drug, Sovaldi. While
Amgen will not discuss pricing plans for
Repatha and the FDA is barred from considering cost when reviewing drugs
Express Scripts and other companies are
already raising concerns about the impact on
health care budgets.

Continued from page 1

again, is the pride in the voice of veterans for their service to us, Teasdale
Comment on
said. Weve placed over 200 dogs in
or share this story at
www.smdailyjournal.com the loving homes of veterans and we

tial return to civilian life was rough.


Now a senior at the University of
California at Berkeley, Matlock said
things are looking up with the help of
his black Labrador Willis and Dr. Joan
Nold, who runs Labs for Liberty with
her husband.
There were things I trained for and
prepared for as far as doing my job and
getting shot at, amongst other things.
But theres things you really cant train
for as far as seeing casualties on the
battlefield, like your friends. So when I
came home from that last rotation, I
had some physical scars as well as
emotional [ones], Matlock said.
After researching service dogs,
Matlock was paired with Willis
through Labs for Liberty. Unlike many
service dogs trained in over 100 tasks,
Nold said they cater the puppies to veterans individual needs by handpicking
relevant tasks for each client.
For those who have PTSD, time can
be of the essence so Nold said its her
mission to engage veterans early on
and provide them with a dog as soon as
possible.
Twenty-two veterans are killing
themselves every day and so we wanted
to reduce the amount of time it took to
get a service dog, Nold said, referring
to the alarming number of veteran suicides.
Matlock was able to name his pup,
received pictures and videos before ultimately flying out to Utah to spend a
week learning how to train Willis with

Nold.
Theyve been an absolute lifeline
for me, Matlock said. I knew within
six months I was going to be having a
battle buddy come home with me. Its
been fantastic. Everybody thats been
around me, my family, friends, everybody thats been in contact with me has
seen a difference.
Former Marine Sgt. Jarom Vahai
spent two tours in Iraq and agreed readjusting to civilian life was tough
before being paired with Chewy, a shih
tzu-Yorkie mix.
Hes really changed my life. When I
first got back, the hardest part was
being away from my Marines and my
support, my buddies that backed me up
and watched my back. And I felt very
vulnerable and very unprotected,
Vahai said. Hes helped me, changed
my life and helped me with things like
nightmares.
Whether its to wake a sleeping veteran from a horrific nightmare, serve as
a companion during daily routines or
help reduce anxiety, dogs can provide
an invaluable service to people with or
without PTSD, said Speier and Barbara
Teasdale, founder of Vets Adopt Pets.
It can also help heal a very wounded
soul. Each adoption weve done,
each match, anywhere across the
nation, is just amazing. Its just very
special. Each veterans story is just as
important as the last one, but the common denominator I hear over and over

RAISES

Belmont-Redwood
Shores,
Burlingame, Millbrae, Redwood City
and San Bruno Park elementary school
districts, South San Francisco Unified
School District and San Mateo Union
High School District have also agreed
to raises in recent months.
Edith Salvatore, head of the Sequoia
teachers union, celebrated the districts willingness to offer a raise.
We were pleased the district was
able to make teachers a priority, she
said.
She said the deal, which was nearly
unanimously ratified by members of
the union, came together in an unusually swift fashion.
Negotiations were uncharacteristically brief, she said. Frequently
negotiations roll over into the fall.
She said wrapping up a contract
agreement before the beginning of the

Mateo County.
The salary increase will help all
employees and especially our younger
teachers to keep pace [with] the high
cost of living on the Peninsula,
Lianides said in an email.
Teachers in the high school district
last year made an average of roughly
$87,000, according to a report from
the California Department
of
Education.
As the economy continues to
rebound, both locally and throughout
the state, districts and teachers across
the county are agreeing to pay raises.

Retired Air Force Master Sgt. Eddie
Ramirez spent 22 years serving his
country and had a hard time finding
work when he returned to civilian life.
Now the founder of One Vet One Voice;
which helps veterans with health care,
education, housing and employment;
Ramirez said his dog Malo has pushed
him through.
Hes my partner, Ramirez said.
Malo knows when I come home, he

doesnt turn his back on me.
Dave Jennelle, a Navy veteran of
Desert Storm, said the impact the war
had on him didnt materialize for a
while. Now, nearly three months after
being paired with Laddie, a 9-monthold Border collie, Jennelle said things
are getting easier.
[Desert Storm] left a mark on me. I
didnt know it at the time, I took it and
stuffed it way down for 24 years. It just
recently resurfaced and now Im dealing
with it and from that, it was suggested
that I look into getting a service dog,
Jennelle said. [Laddie] just made an
incredible change in my life.
Everybody around me sees the difference. Im a lot more relaxed, its just
been a life saver.

Salvatore, who teaches Spanish at
Sequoia High School in Redwood City.
The Sequoia Union High School
District budget is fueled primarily by
local property tax revenue.
Board President Allen Weiner was
reluctant to comment on the tentative
agreement until trustees have an
opportunity to address it publicly at
the meeting, but said the district and
teachers have enjoyed a healthy relationship over recent years.
In general, weve been very pleased
with the productive and cooperative
approach that district staff and union
leaders have displayed during the past
several rounds of contract negotiations, he said.
The Sequoia Union High School
District Board of Trustees will meet
Wednesday, June 10, in the district
office, 480 James Ave., Redwood City.
The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your charm and
charisma make you hard to resist. Social events will

Courses are valuable, but journeys to different
destinations will play a role as well. Combining all
