REPUBLICANS BLOCK SENATE BILL DEMS SAY
STRESSES INCOME-FAIRNESS
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
After more than two years of
working to make Belmont’s main
thoroughfare safer for bicyclists,
pedestrians and vehicles to share,
the City Council reviewed the
Ralston Avenue Corridor Study for
the first time Tuesday and requested
more public outreach before
approving nearly $8.5 million in
recommended repairs and
improvements.
For pedestrians, the conceptual
study recommends repairing and
widening sidewalks, installing
new traffic signals and crosswalks
and increasing crossing times.
Vehicle improvements would
include adding traffic calming
measures and extending turn
lanes. With bicyclists in mind,
suggestions include creating bike
lanes within portions of the corri-
dor and signs for alternate bike
routes.
“This is a very difficult issue for
many people because it serves up
to 38,000 cars a day,” said
Councilman Eric Reed. “But I
think this is about as good as a
balanced plan you’re going to
get.”
Over the course of three commu-
nity workshops, a Parks and
Recreation meeting and a citizen-
initiated online petition, con-
cerns have primarily revolved
around wanting a continuous bike
lane and slower speed limits.
Ralston Avenue’s bike path is
segmented and some were initially
adamant about seeing it continu-
ous, but the study concluded that
would entail losing a lane of traf-
fic, said consultant Mark Spencer,
principal planner with W-Trans.

By Angela Swartz
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
The downtown Burlingame post
office could soon be moving to
1100 Howard Ave., the current
location of Calico Corners, while
the sale of the old location could
be announced soon.
In a letter dated March 31 to
Councilman Jerry Deal, the U.S.
Postal Service says it reviewed
several sites and the preferred
site is 1100 Howard Ave., the
current location of the retailer of
custom home furnishings and
designer fab-
rics.
“We believe
this new loca-
tion will pro-
vide the commu-
nity with an
upgraded, mod-
ern facility that
offers a safe
working envi-
ronment for our employees and the
level of service expected by our
customers,” the letter states.

The Green Gorillas help students learn to compost at Skyline College as part of a pilot project on waste diversion.
By Angela Swartz
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
In an effort to reduce waste
going to the landfill, students at
Skyline College in San Bruno
have begun their own composting
initiative.
The Green Gorillas, the name of
the project, measured the amount
of waste they were able to divert
from the regular trash cans and the
landfill. During peak hours, stu-
dents brought compost bins to the
cafeteria and advised others on
how to separate their composta-
bles and trash. Students were
trained by Recology.
“We’re hoping to implement
this as a permanent program at
Skyline College to expand it into
the entire district,” said Deanna
Badong, president of the Skyline
Environmental Club.
The group began its efforts after
receiving a $2,500 grant to sup-
port the idea. This past fall, the
group conducted a study and just
piloted the program in the cafete-
ria. Then this spring, the students
spent Monday through Thursday
for a three-week period at the cafe-
teria. Each day, the students were
in the cafeteria they measured the
amount of waste they have been
able to divert from the regular
trash cans and the landfill.
“There was already a little bit of
student interest regarding com-
posting from an environmental
science course,” Badong said.
“The Environmental Club wanted
to do something simple we could
measure success by. I liked that it’s
easy to do; it’s not really hard to
get people to sort trash. It creates
a culture of sustainability on cam-
pus. It’s gotten to the point where
people expect us to be there.”
The group was able to divert
57.6 percent of the waste collec-
tion to the compost, totaling 129

call leads to burglary arrest
DOVER, N.H. — Mike Witonis got
an email from Apple thanking him for
calling customer service about his lap-
top computer. Problem is, someone
had stolen it from him a year earlier.
Police eventually arrested 24-year-
old Casey Wentworth of Portsmouth
on Monday and charged him with bur-
glary. He’s accused of taking the lap-
top from Witonis’ home in Dover in
February 2013.
When the break-in happened, police
said they couldn’t identify any sus-
pects. Detectives contacted Apple and
the laptop’s serial number was
flagged.
When Witonis got the email, he
contacted police, who said the person
who called customer service used the
serial number of the stolen computer.
Witonis tells WMUR-TVthe discov-
ery was sort of shocking.
Wentworth is scheduled to be
arraigned on May 2. It wasn’t immedi-
ately known if he had a lawyer.
Boy, 9, rides for help
after snowmobile crash
MARIN — Aquick-thinking 9-year-
old California boy is credited with
saving his father after a snowmobile
crash near Lake Tahoe.
KTVU-TVreports J.T. Bierdneau was
severely injured when his snowmobile
trapped his leg over the weekend.
After the crash, 9-year-old Bode
Bierdneau decided his only choice was
to ride alone across miles of snow to
get help. He admits being nervous and
unsure of which direction to go.
Despite having no cellphone recep-
tion the fourth grader from Marin
County stayed calm, riding until he
found someone with an emergency
radio.
From there he led rescuers to his dad.
Bode’s mother says search and res-
cue officials told her the boy’s actions
were heroic.
Bode’s father was hospitalized and is
expected to recover.
Teen charged with spring
break assault on officer
SANTABARBARA — A17-year-old
boy has been charged with assault,
mayhem and resisting an officer for
allegedly attacking a police officer
during a rock- and bottle-throwing
brawl in Santa Barbara last weekend.
Prosecutors announced Tuesday that
Desmond Edwards faces trial as an
adult. Jail officials had no record of
him in custody Wednesday and it’s
unclear if he’s obtained a lawyer.
Authorities claim Edwards hit a UC
Santa Barbara police officer in the face
with a backpack containing glass
liquor bottles.
The violence flared as 20,000 peo-
ple attended an unsanctioned college
spring break gathering called Deltopia
in Isla Vista.
Authorities say 50 people were
taken to hospitals — half after unrest
erupted — along with four law enforce-
ment officers. Nearly 170 people were
arrested Friday and Saturday, mostly
for alcohol-related offenses.
Man burned in suspected
Malibu home drug lab blast
MALIBU — Authorities say a 25-
year-old man was airlifted to a hospi-
tal with burns following an explosion
during a suspected drug manufacturing
process at a house in Malibu.
The Los Angeles Times reports
arriving firefighters found the home
fully engulfed in flames Tuesday
evening.
Sheriff’s Sgt. Fray Lupian says an
initial investigation of the burned-out
structure uncovered hash oil at the res-
idence.
Hash oil, also known as honey oil,
is a potent marijuana byproduct
extracted with butane from parts of the
plant that are often discarded.
Lupian says the man, who was not
immediately identified, would likely
be arrested on drug-related charges
after recovering.
Last month two men were critically
burned in similar explosions at a
house in Commerce. Ahash oil extrac-
tion laboratory was found inside the
house.

Less than a year after a psychiatric patient
charged with raping a fellow county hospi-
tal ward was sent to a state mental facility,
he is back in San Mateo County to poten-
tially stand trial.
The medical staff at Atascadero State
Hospital concluded that Ronald Sunwo
O’Brien, 31, is now competent to aid in his
own defense on several felonies stemming
from the assault and a subsequent attack on a
correctional officer while awaiting trial.
O’Brien has been in and out of mental
facilities after prior arrests and twice fol-
lowing his arrest for the alleged March 30,
2010, sexual assault at the county’s public
hospital. Sometime in the early hours, he
allegedly entered the hospital room of a 23-
year-old female patient, held her down on
the bed with a hand over her mouth and sex-
ually assaulted her multiple times. Minutes
later, O’Brien allegedly
returned with a piece of
paper on which he’d
drawn a pair of lips with a
finger over them to essen-
tially tell her to stay
quiet. The following
morning, the woman
reported the alleged
assault and police were
contacted.
The following month, O’Brien was also
charged with punching a correctional officer
in the head for trying to take away his meal
tray away because he was smashing food
into the cell floor.
O’Brien was committed in August 2010.
He was found competent the following year
but his mental health deteriorated before he
could stand trial and he was returned to the
hospital until March 2013. AJune jury trial
was set to determine if he really was compe-
tent but, before it began, attorneys agreed
he should be committed again.
O’Brien is now back again and was due
before a judge Wednesday to certify the hos-
pital’s findings but he refused to come to
court. Instead, O’Brien’s court-appointed
attorney was assigned to the case again and
he returns to court April 22 to either agree
with the hospital or announce plans to con-
test the conclusions.
O’Brien’s alleged attack at the San Mateo
Medical Center prompted its own internal
investigation and a host of recommended
changes to prevent future incidents such as
the addition of a security officer and nurse to
the ward, further investigation into whether
staff members in the unit were culpable and
improving communication and risk evalua-
tions of patients.

Redwood City is returning Public Works
to a stand-alone department and making
new appointments as part of restructuring
to better keep pace with its fast growth and
development, City Manager Bob Bell
announced Wednesday.
As part of the reorganization,
Community Development Director Bill
Ekern will be named assistant city manager
of development with a focus on carrying

The collision was called in at 9:18 a.m.

The two firefighters were taken to hos-
pitals and are currently listed in stable

The cause of the crash remains under

Man allegedly deals
drugs at ice cream shop
A man was arrested for selling drugs
out of an ice cream shop in Belmont after
an undercover investigation, according
to police.
Martin Abinader, a 20-year-old San
Carlos resident, was arrested around 8
p. m. Tuesday at the ice cream shop where
he worked on the 1000 block of Alameda
de las Pulgas, according to Belmont
police.
Police were tipped off that someone
was selling drugs to
customers out of the
store in late February.
After arranging two
undercover buys, police
arrested Abinader and
charged him with sell-
ing marijuana and pos-
session of cocaine and
concentrated cannabis,
according to police.
The investigation is
ongoing, however, it appears neither the
business nor other employees were
involved, according to police.
Gas prices up 14 cents
a gallon in a month
The average price for a gallon of gas has
gone up 14 cents in the past month, the
American Automobile Association of
Northern California announced.
Gas prices now stand at $3.98 a gallon
in Northern California, a sharp jump from
March but still below the California aver-
age of $4.05, AAA officials said.
The national average is the highest in
nearly six months at $3.59, and has
increased 10 cents in the past month.
It is normal to see gas prices rise in the
spring, however, AAA said.
“Each spring, refiners must start produc-
ing their summer-blend gasoline by May
1, and that process is well underway,” said
Bob Brown, a AAA spokesman.
“Additional additives are put into the
gasoline to make it burn properly, so that
it will meet clean-air standards.”
“The cost of those additives is passed
on to the consumer,” Brown said.
Seasonal maintenance at refineries also
pushes up gas prices, but many refineries
have come completed maintenance now,
AAA said.
Demand for gasoline was also at a three-
month high in the United States as of two
weeks ago, and has contributed to rising
prices.
Overturned big-rig shuts down 92
All lanes of State Route 92 just west of
San Mateo were blocked Wednesday morn-
ing after an overturned big-rig was pulled
from the road and its load of gravel that
had spilled was swept up, according to the
California Highway Patrol.
The truck fell over just after 7:30 a.m.
near where State Route 92 meets Skyline
Boulevard, between the Lower and Upper
Crystal Springs reservoirs, CHP officials
said.
One lane of traffic was closed on State
Route 92 while crews pulled the truck
upright and cleaned up the spill. The road
was reported to be fully open again as of
about 9:45 a.m., according to the CHP.
No one was injured in the crash.
Contractor ruptures
gas line in San Carlos
PG&E crews repaired a gas line ruptured
by a contractor this afternoon in San
Carlos.
PG&E spokesman Jason King said that
the service line at 173 Exbourne Ave. was
hit with a backhoe just before 2 p.m.
Crews had the line squeezed off by 2:25
p.m. and no evacuations were required,
King said. One customer’s service was
affected by the rupture, King said.
King said the accident could have been
prevented if the contractors had called 811
prior to doing any construction work. He
recommends that all residents contact
PG&E before starting any digging project
so that the utility company can help with
safety planning.

ALas Vegas big-rig driver tried to strangle
a female passenger he picked up in the East
Bay with a towing strap on Friday in San
Mateo after she refused to have sex, accord-
ing to prosecutors who charged him with
attempted murder.
Alfonso Suarez-Prendes, 49, is also
charged with kidnaping and assault with a
deadly weapon in the April 4 attack.
San Mateo police arrested Suarez-Prendes
after responding to a 911 call just before 2
p.m. from a person who reported hearing a
woman yelling for help from a big-rig being
driven through the city. Police stopped the
truck on El Camino Real near Ninth Avenue
and found the woman in the passenger seat
with a “load/tow” strap wrapped twice
around her neck. The rope
was tied to the raised arm
rest of the driver’s seat.

and returns to court April 14.
He remains in custody without bail.

Prosecutor Stephanie Garratt, who served
as a Superior Court commissioner for nine
years until budget cuts eliminated her posi-
tion, is returning to the bench, Presiding
Judge Robert D. Foiles announced
Wednesday.
Garratt will fill the position previously
held by Kathleen M. McKenna who retired
last month. Garratt starts April 28 taking
over the assignments previously handled by
McKenna including family law, unlawful
detainers, civil small claims and traffic.
“We are delighted that Stephanie Garratt
has agreed to return to our court,” Foiles said
in the announcement. “Stephanie has
demonstrated herself to be a phenomenal
judicial officer and we are thankful to have
someone with her abilities working with us
again.”
Garratt said she is thrilled to return.
“I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get
back to work making sure that litigants as
well as our community have a voice in a fair,
impartial courtroom. Having the judges’
support as well as many other people who
work in the courthouse and know my work
ethic is humbling,” Garratt wrote in an
email to the Daily Journal.
Garratt is also currently running against
defense attorney and Daly City Councilman
Ray Buenaventura for the judge position to
be vacated by the upcoming retirement of
Judge Craig Parsons.

SACRAMENTO — Gov. Jerry Brown has a
big lead as he seeks re-election to an unprece-
dented fourth term, far outpacing any of the
three top Republican challengers, according
to a Field Poll released Wednesday.
The survey says 57 percent of likely voters
would choose the Democratic governor,
while 17 percent of likely voters support
state Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, 3 percent
favor Laguna Hills Mayor Andrew Blount,
and 2 percent support former U.S. Treasury
official Neel Kashkari.
Donnelly, who represents a district in San
Bernardino County, has been campaigning
for nearly a year but has raised just $373,000
so far this year. By comparison, Kashkari
announced his bid in January and has amassed
$1.3 million in campaign contributions.
Even so, he remains virtually unknown.
Only 3 percent of likely Republican vot-
ers preferred Kashkari, while nearly four
in 10 did not know who they would sup-
port in the governor’s race.
Kashkari’s fourth-place showing was a sur-
prise to some who have sought to make the
first-time candidate the new face of the state
Republican Party. The poll has a sampling
error rate of plus or minus 4.5 percentage
points for likely voters, meaning Kashkari is
virtually tied with Blount, who has raised no
outside money but loaned his campaign
$12,000.
“More than 50 percent of voters don’t
know much about any of the candidates,
which shows us that it’s really going to come
down to the voter contact,” said Jessica Ng, a
spokeswoman for Kashkari. “We’re confident
we’re going to have the resources to connect
with voters and communicate his message.”
Donnelly promoted the poll results in
posts on his Twitter and Facebook pages
Wednesday, saying he is clearly the strongest
GOP candidate, with a “definitive and grow-
ing lead over big government bailout archi-
tect” Kashkari, who ran the federal Troubled
Asset Relief Program at the height of the
recession.

Ajudge dismissed a felony child molesta-
tion charge against an after-school child
care aide accused of kissing and touching a
6-year-old girl inappropriately on the
Horrall Elementary School campus and
found after his arrest to reportedly have
downloaded child pornography.
After a preliminary hearing Wednesday,
Judge Marta Diaz found insufficient evidence
to hold Eric Michael Renz, 21, of Millbrae,
to answer on the molestation charge but did
order him to trial on the child pornography
count. Renz returns to court April 24 to enter
a Superior Court plea and remains free from
custody on $100,000 bail.
Defense attorney Chuck Smith has pre-
viously told the Daily Journal his
client’s conduct was a case of affection
but not molestation.
On Oct. 18, prosecutors said a school cus-
todian looking out a classroom window at
the Children’s Annex in San Mateo saw
Renz sitting on a bench with his arm around
the girl’s shoulder with his hand on her hip.
Renz kissed the student twice, according to
the custodian who reported the alleged inci-
dent to school administrators. He was
immediately removed and police contacted.
Apolice search of Renz’s laptop comput-
er reportedly turned up downloaded child
pornography.
Renz denied the kissing and touching,
according to the District Attorney’s Office.
Smith also said Renz did touch and kiss
the child, who was very affectionate with
him, but not in a sexual way.
If convicted, Renz faces up to three years
in jail.

WASHINGTON — Republicans blocked a
Senate bill Wednesday aimed at narrowing
the pay gap between men and women, an
election-year ritual that Democrats hope
will help spur women to back them in this
fall’s congressional elections.
GOP lawmakers said the measure could
hinder employers from granting raises, or
permitting flexible hours in exchange for
lower pay, for fear of costly lawsuits. For
Democrats, the bill was the latest stressing
income-fairness they are pushing this cam-
paign season, a procession that includes
proposals to extend jobless benefits, boost
the minimum wage and help students and
families afford college loans.
“When I hear all these phony reasons,
some are mean and some are meaningless, I
do get emotional,” Sen. Barbara Mikulski,
D-Md., the bill’s sponsor, said of argu-
ments against the legislation. “I get angry.
I get outraged. I get volcanic.”
Mikulski was the latest Democrat to play
off former CIA Director Michael Hayden’s
recent comment that Senate Intelligence
Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein,
D-Calif., was motivated by “emotional
feeling” when she sought an investigation
of the spy agency’s harsh treatment of ter-
rorism suspects.
Republicans concentrated on the eco-
nomic damage they said the gender equity
bill would inflict, consistent with their
campaign focus on an economy that is still
recovering from a severe recession. They
were backed by the U.S. Chamber of
Commerce and other business groups.
“At a time when the Obama economy is
already hurting women so much, this legis-
lation would double down on job loss — all
while lining the pockets of trial lawyers,”
said Senate Minority Leader Mitch
McConnell, R-Ky. “In other words, it’s just
another Democrat idea that threatens to
hurt the very people it claims to help.”
Democrats pushed the same legislation
the last two election years, 2012 and 2010,
only to see Senate Republicans scuttle the
measures.
Mikulski’s bill is aimed at tightening the
1963 law that made it illegal to pay women
less than men for comparable jobs because
of their gender.
It would shrink the loopholes employers
can cite to justify such discrepancies and
prevent them from punishing workers who
share salary information. It would also
make class-action suits about paycheck
unfairness easier and allow workers to seek
punitive and compensatory damages.
Wednesday’s vote was 53-44 for debating
the legislation — seven fewer than
Democrats needed to keep the bill moving
forward. Every voting Republican was
against continuing work on the measure.
Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, who usually
aligns with Democrats, voted with the
GOP. He said later the bill ignored the real
reasons for the pay gap between genders,
such as companies that make it hard for
women with children to continue working.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-
Nev., switched to vote against the legisla-
tion — a maneuver that makes it easier for
him to demand a future roll call on the bill.
Top Democrats have promised to force
Republicans to vote again on the issue
before November.
“This won’t be the last time they have to
go home to their constituents and explain
that they don’t think this is a worthy
issue,” said Sen. Patty Murray of
Washington, a member of the Senate
Democratic leadership.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, said dis-
crepancies in pay between men and women
are worth exploring. She said she opposed
the Democratic bill because “perhaps this
is more an exercise in political messaging
than an effort to try to resolve what I
believe is an issue.”
Women consistently vote more often for
Democrats than men do. They tilted
Democratic in every election since 1976
but two: 2002 and 2010. In those two elec-
tions women divided about evenly, even as
Republicans picked up congressional
seats.
Women averaged 77 percent of men’s
earnings in 2012, according to Census
Bureau figures. That is better than the 61
percent differential of 1960, but little
changed since 2001.
GOP blocks Senate bill curbing gender pay gap
“At a time when the Obama economy is already
hurting women so much, this legislation would double
down on job loss — all while lining the pockets of trial
lawyers. ... In other words, it’s just another Democrat idea
that threatens to hurt the very people it claims to help.”

WASHINGTON — The House Ways
and Means Committee voted
Wednesday to refer a former Internal
Revenue Service official to the Justice
Department for possible criminal
prosecution in the agency’s tea party
controversy.
Committee investigators say they
have uncovered evidence that Lois
Lerner may have violated the constitu-
tional rights of conservative groups,
misled investigators and risked expos-
ing confidential taxpayer information.
Lerner, who retired last year, headed
the IRS division that processes appli-
cations for tax-exempt status. The
agency has acknowledged that agents
improperly singled out tea party and
other conservative groups for extra
scrutiny when they applied for tax-
exempt status from 2010 to 2012.
“We think there’s reason to believe
that laws were broken, that constitu-
tional rights were violated,” said com-
mittee chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich.
“We have to make sure that the signal
goes out that this can’t happen again.”
The Ways and Means Committee
has been investigating the IRS for
nearly a year, since shortly after the
mishandling of tea party applica-
tions became public. Wednesday’s
vote to refer the matter to the Justice
Department was 23-14, with all
Republicans voting in favor and all
Democrats voting against.
Democratic leaders said the vote was
a political stunt designed to fire up the
Republican base in an election year.
They noted that the Justice Department
is already investigating whether any
crimes have been committed.
“It now seems clear that Republican
members of the Ways and Means
Committee have decided that they do
not want to be left behind in the
Republican campaign to declare this a
scandal and keep it going until
November,” said Rep. Sander Levin of
Michigan, the committee’s ranking
Democrat.
Lerner’s lawyer issued a statement
Wednesday declaring her innocence.
“This is just another attempt by
Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for
political gain,” said the lawyer,
William W. Taylor III. “Ms. Lerner has
done nothing wrong. She did not vio-
late any law or regulation. She did not
?mislead Congress. She did not inter-
fere with the rights of any organiza-
tion to a tax exemption. ?Those are the
facts.”

Teen stabs 22 at Pittsburgh-area high school
MURRYSVILLE, Pa. — Flailing away with two kitchen
knives, a 16-year-old boy with a “blank expression”
stabbed and slashed 21 students and a security guard in the
crowded halls of his suburban Pittsburgh high school
Wednesday before an assistant principal tackled him.
At least five students were critically wounded, including a
boy whose liver was pierced by a knife thrust that narrowly
missed his heart and aorta, doctors said. Others also suffered
deep abdominal puncture wounds.
The rampage — which came after decades in which U.S.
schools geared much of their emergency planning toward
mass shootings, not stabbings — set off a screaming stam-
pede, left blood on the floor and walls, and brought teachers
rushing to help the victims.
Police shed little light on the motive.
The suspect, Alex Hribal, was taken into custody and
treated for a minor hand wound, then was brought into court
in shackles and a hospital gown and charged with four
counts of attempted homicide and 21 counts of aggravated
assault. He was jailed without bail, and authorities said he
would be prosecuted as an adult.
One child dead, 14 hurt in Florida day care crash
WINTER PARK, Fla. — A car smashed into an Orlando-
area day care Wednesday, killing a girl and injuring 14 oth-
ers, at least a dozen of them children, and authorities were
searching for the driver of an SUV who they say started the
crash, officials said.
A Toyota Solara convertible went out of control after it
was struck by a Dodge Durango, jumped a curb and smashed
into the day care, breaking through the wall and into the
building, said Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Wanda
Diaz. The convertible driver was not hurt.
The Durango left the scene but was located almost two
hours later after it had been abandoned at a home. The high-
way patrol said it is looking for 26-year-old Robert
Corchado, who has been arrested eight times since 2000,
according to Florida Department of Law Enforcement
records. Troopers said he was the driver of the Durango, but
wouldn’t say how they established that.

SACRAMENTO — Water managers
are determining if recent storms helped
California’s dwindling water supplies
enough to warrant increases in water
deliveries to farms and thirsty cities.
Meantime, the California
Department of Water Resources and the
U.S. Bureau of Reclamation on
Wednesday announced that water deliv-
eries will remain at zero until the
analysis is complete.
State Water Project allocations
have been cut to zero for the first
time in the system’s 54-year histo-
r y, and the federally run Central
Valley Project has also cancelled
deliveries to most recipients.
Water resources director Mark Cowin
says it will likely take until the end of
the month to determine if any water
can be delivered.
California is in a drought emer-
gency, and officials said recent rains
haven’t helped the parched state’s
long-term water prognosis.
Water deliveries remain at zero pending further study

ISLAMABAD — Abomb ripped through a
fruit and vegetable market on the outskirts of
Islamabad on Wednesday, killing 22 people
and wounding dozens more in a new attack in
the Pakistani capital, which until recently
had remained relatively removed from shoot-
ings and bombings that plague other parts of
the country.
Confusion over who carried out the morn-
ing blast underlined one of Pakistan’s cen-
tral woes — the sheer number of armed
groups waging violence for multiple
motives.
The Pakistani Taliban, which has led a cam-
paign of bombings and shootings for years
aimed at toppling the government, quickly
denied responsibility, saying in a statement
that it is adhering to a ceasefire for negotia-
tions. Offshoots of the group have carried out
at least one attack during the cease-fire.
A separatist group of ethnic Baluch
claimed responsibility for Wednesday’s
attack. Baluch separatists have been fight-
ing a bloody insurgency for years in their
heartland in the southwest of the country.
They have rarely struck as far away as the
capital, and if they were to blame, it could
represent a worrying expansion of their
reach.

DAMASCUS, Syria — Two car bombs
exploded Wednesday in a government-held
district of Syria’s battleground city of
Homs, killing at least 25 people and wound-
ing more than 100, state media said.
The blasts hit a commercial street inhabit-
ed mostly by members of President Bashar
Assad’s minority Alawite sect in the central
city, where government forces have been
imposing a heavy siege on rebel-controlled
districts.
Syria’s uprising, which began with large-
ly peaceful protests against Assad’s rule in
March 2011, has since evolved into a civil
war with sectarian overtones, pitting pre-
dominantly Sunni Muslim rebels against an
Assad government that is dominated by
Alawites, an offshoot of Shiite Islam.
Homs, a city of about 1 million, has
shown great sympathy for the opposition
since the early days of the uprising. The city
was once known as “the capital of the
Syrian revolution” before government
forces captured large parts of once rebel-held
neighborhoods such as Baba Amr and
Khaldiyeh.

BOSTON — Brandeis University has
transformed an accolade into “a moment of
shaming” by withdrawing a plan to give an
honorary degree to a Muslim women’s advo-
cate who has made comments critical of
Islam, she said Wednesday.
The university decided late Tuesday not to
honor Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali at the
May 18 commencement after receiving
complaints from some students, faculty
members and others, including an online
petition.
Ali, a member of the Dutch Parliament
from 2003 to 2006, has been quoted as
making comments critical of Islam. That
includes a 2007 interview with Reason
Magazine in which she said of the reli-
gion: “Once it’s defeated, it can mutate
into something peaceful. It’s very diffi-
cult to even talk about peace now.
They’re not interested in peace. I think
that we are at war with Islam. And there’s
no middle ground in wars.”
Brandeis, outside Boston in Waltham,
Mass., said it had not been aware of Ali’s
statements earlier.
“She is a compelling public figure and
advocate for women’s rights, and we respect
and appreciate her work to protect and
defend the rights of women and girls
throughout the world,” said the university’s
statement. “That said, we cannot overlook
certain of her past statements that are incon-
sistent with Brandeis University’s core val-
ues.”
Ali said that her critics selectively pick
quotes and that she doubts the university
was not aware of them.
“What was initially intended as an honor
has now devolved into a moment of sham-
ing,” she said in a statement Wednesday.
“Yet the slur on my reputation is not the
worst aspect of this episode. More
deplorable is that an institution set up on
the basis of religious freedom should today
so deeply betray its own founding princi-
ples.

Los Angeles Times
M
ore than a year after it approved
a report critical of the CIA’s
interrogation and detention
policies, the Senate Intelligence
Committee has voted to make a portion of
the document public. It’s now up to
President Obama to ensure that the agency
doesn’t mount a rear-guard attempt to cen-
sor or sanitize the committee’s findings in
the name of national security.
Thanks to news reports and a report by
the CIA’s inspector general, Americans
long have been aware of both the broad
outlines and some abhorrent details of the
Bush administration’s mistreatment of sus-
pected terrorists after 9/11. We know that
suspects were transported for questioning
to “black sites” abroad, and that two sus-
pected Al Qaeda operatives, Khalid Shaikh
Mohammed and Abu Zubaydah, were sub-
jected to waterboarding. And we have read
the memos in which Bush administration
lawyers used contorted reasoning to justify
torture.
But the Intelligence Committee’s 6,200-
word report, based on a review of millions
of pages of documents, contains additional
accounts of abuse, including (according to
a Washington Post report) the alleged
repeated dunking of a terrorism suspect in
tanks of ice water at a site in Afghanistan.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the
Intelligence Committee chairwoman who
aggressively has sought its declassifica-
tion, said the report “exposes brutality that
stands in stark contrast to our values as a
nation.”
More important, those who have read
the report say it concludes that water-
boarding and other “enhanced interroga-
tion techniques” yielded little valuable
intelligence that couldn’t have been
obtained by other means.
Last week the committee voted to declas-
sify the report’s 480-page executive sum-
mary along with 20 findings and conclu-
sions, but that represents only the begin-
ning of the disclosure process. The execu-
tive branch will now determine which por-
tions of the document must be redacted to
protect sensitive national security infor-
mation.
The Central Intelligence Agency has
promised that it will do its part to ensure
that the declassification review proceeds
“expeditiously.” But the agency com-
plained that a previous version of the
report contained serious errors — a charge
echoed by the committee’s Republican vice
chair — and it has a vested interest in sup-
pressing information that would sully its
reputation. That is why the president, who
has sent mixed signals about the impor-
tance of confronting the abuses of the past,
must make thorough and timely declassifi-
cation of this report a personal priority.
Insider trading
Editor,
In a recent “60 Minutes” expose,
Michael Lewis, author of “Flash Boys,”
demonstrated how the U.S. market is rigged
in favor of the “big banks,” who, like com-
peting athletes taking performance
enhancing drugs, have rigged the system in
their favor. The “insiders” eavesdrop on
other traders orders, select the ones that
look most promising, then using superior
technology, called high frequency trading
(HFT), “front run” other traders to the
exchanges and then place buy and sell
orders cashing in huge amounts of money
— all in the blink of an eye.
Conversely, the “little guy” is left gasp-
ing wondering why his order never got exe-
cuted. HFT may be legal but clearly is
patently unfair. In a zero-sum game, “heads
I win, tails you lose game,” HFT ensures
that billions of dollars are generated execut-
ing tens of thousands of orders in nanosec-
onds skimming dollars of the more routine
form of trading. HFT is an artifact of com-
puter technology in the hands of rapacious
traders reducing the market to a casino.
The current system screams of the urgent
necessity of reforms to bring about a level
playing field; a small transaction fee should
be imposed on all trades to partially miti-
gate the unfair advantage of HFT. Finally, a
new exchange, IEX, established by the
“hero” of Michael Lewis’ investigative
reporting should go a long way to leveling
the playing field.

Safety issue
Editor,
Since when are businesses and/or residen-
tial units allowed to be constructed without
adequate “on-site” parking? I do not
believe any other city on the Peninsula
allows that. It makes one wonder what in
the world the Millbrae city planners were
thinking when they allowed the Tai-Wu
restaurant to be built without providing
“on-site” parking.
The restaurant, without “on-site” park-
ing, has caused traffic congestion and dan-
ger to pedestrians crossing El Camino
Real. The city has allowed Tai-Wu to obtain
parking on the Burger King property, and
has also taken away public parking spaces
in front of the restaurant to accommodate
valet parking. The lack of “on-site” park-
ing causes traffic problems with vehicles
turning left on El Camino Real (west-
bound), eastbound vehicles crossing El
Camino Real to drop off at Tai-Wu, and
safety issues for pedestrians crossing El
Camino Real to access or exit the restau-
rant.
The city has put in place an electric sign
trailer advising motorists of the pedestrian
crossing located in front of the restaurant.
This is one of three pedestrian crossings in
Millbrae that are very dark and extremely
dangerous to pedestrians and motorists. A
pedestrian was killed at the intersection of
Millwood Drive and El Camino Real; yet,
the city did nothing to prevent further inci-
dents with the exception of setting up a
pedestrian decoy operation to cite offend-
ers who did not yield. What must be done
for pedestrian safety are crosswalks with
yellow lights that flash when occupied and
improved lighting. Those crosswalks are
located on El Camino Real at: Millwood,
Park, Le Cruz and Paramount.

Response to ‘Supreme stimulation’
Editor,
Mr. Jorg Aadahl has finally written some-
thing I can agree with when he says ‘bring
voters to kick out politicians who have
sold their souls and country to the highest
bidder’ (letter to the editor “Supreme stimu-
lation” in the April 8 issue of the Daily
Journal).
However, based on his previous letters, I
suspect he is only speaking of Republicans
since they are the source of America’s prob-
lems. Recently, I was in Palm Springs
when the president arrived to have a two-
hour meeting with the king of Jordan and
spend four days on the golf courses. Now
the king had been in Washington the week
before but the Washington golf courses
were covered in snow, so let’s pack up Air
Force One and the entourage and fly out to
Palm Springs for an estimated 8 million
taxpayer dollars. What do you think Mr.
Aadahl? Is this the act of a responsible
president? And let’s not forget the thou-
sands of dollars of lost revenue incurred by
the nearby small airports forced to close
during his stay. And what about the free
rounds of golf on exclusive private courses
owned by individuals and companies that
may do business with the government. I
have always been a “decline to state” refus-
ing to drink the Kool-Aid of either party.
Until Mr. Aadahl and the zealots of both
parties take off their rose-colored glasses
and realize their party is equally responsi-
ble for America’s problems, there is little
hope of moving forward. I would urge Mr.
Aadahl to stop his accusations and demand
a higher degree of responsibility from the
president and his own party.

A sunny
infliction
I
’m looking for a sun day. Yes, I know.
Every seven days we get a Sunday.
Heck, the week even hands us a
Saturday. But I’m not talking about the
obligatory weekend that, for those on a tra-
ditional work schedule, provide a respite
from the commute, the tech breakdowns, the
water cooler chitchat and the coworkers who
believe all items in the refrigerator are com-
munal with or without a name label.
Instead, consider a
sun day. Two words.
Lower case. Improper
noun. Referencing a
state of weather rather
than a heavenly day of
rest and responding to
a state of mind.
When the sun is out,
nobody wants to go to
work. Nobody wants
to go to school. They
want to photosynthesize a little. They want
to be on the other side of the office window,
enjoying the world instead of peering long-
ingly out at it. They want to squish their toes
in the grass at the park. They want to find an
outdoor lunch spot with a solid drink list,
tackle the overgrown backyard neglected
through months of quasi-cold and quasi-rain,
they want to do anything and everything but
push papers, answer emails, ignore phone
calls and kick themselves for not faking a
sudden case of the 24-hour Martian death flu.
“I’m sorry. I can’t come in to work today.
I’ve come down with something. Might be
something I ate. No maybe it’s the flu. Have
you heard how deadly it is this year, that
H1N1 swine thingy. You really don’t want
me to describe the symptoms. Not quite sure
what it is.”
Maybe a few coughs or groans for good
measure. Somebody once told me to always
hang your head over the bed to sound partic-
ularly afflicted. Not sure how they figured
that one out.
But such a phone call to the workplace
powers that be is a lie. You know exactly
what the problem is — a distinct desire to
enjoy a day of beautiful weather. And you
know the common symptoms. Reaching for
the short-sleeved shirts and cotton rather
than grabbing a scarf and piling on the wool
is a first sign. Standing an extra few minutes
in the sun when fetching the newspaper or
letting the dog out. Knowing before you
even hit the office that the goal of the day is
to do as little as possible and get out as soon
as you can before the temperature and sun
drops. You’ve got a case of the sun and it is
nothing two aspirin and calling in the morn-
ing is going to help.
So why isn’t it acceptable to lay every-
thing on the table and call in well rather
than sick? Call in sunny, if you will.
Kids in colder climates get to play hooky
when the sky turns dark and wet. But snow
days don’t offer the same opportunity for
enjoying the unexpected time off. There’s no
going to the beach or taking the pups to the
park. Snowed-in roads mean not hitting the
movie theater or mall.
Sun days would be so much better appreci-
ated and enjoyed.
“I’m sorry. I can’t come to work today.
I’ve come down with something. Might be
the weather. Actually, it is the weather.”
The coughing would be optional.
Most workplaces allow for personal days
which is great but those are often planned in
advance, lacking the spontaneity and spe-
cialness of a true sun day. Something tells
me, though, that employers aren’t going to
take too kindly to the idea of work grinding
to a halt every time the mercury soars and
the sun rays burn.
Then again, maybe I just have a jaundiced
point of view.

Big movers

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Once again, it was
the Federal Reserve to the rescue for
the stock market.
Major U.S. indexes rose broadly
Wednesday, helped by a report out of
the nation’s central bank that showed
Fed policymakers want to be absolute-
ly certain the U.S. economy had recov-
ered before starting to raise interest
rates.
Confident that the Fed won’t be rais-
ing rates until sometime next year,
investors once again embraced some
of the market’s more risky names.
Biotechnology and technology
stocks, beaten down over the past
week, were among the biggest gainers.
Wednesday’s trading had one broad
theme: risk on. Investors sold utility
and telecommunications stocks —
which are usually less volatile, rich-
dividend companies — and piled into
areas that typically benefit from a
growing economy: materials makers,
industrial companies and technology
stocks.
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 181.04 points, or 1.1 percent,
to 16,437.18. The Standard & Poor’s
500 index jumped 20.22 points, or
1.1 percent, to 1,872.18 and the
technology-heavy Nasdaq composite
rose the most, up 70.91 points, or
1.7 percent, to 4,183.90.
Facebook rose the most in the S&P
500, jumping 7.3 percent, followed
closely by biotech company Vertex
Pharmaceuticals, up 7 percent. Other
names that saw renewed investor inter-
est were biotech companies Boston
Scientific, Biogen and Celgene and in
technology, Priceline, Red Hat and
ETrade.
The Dow Jones Transportation
Average jumped 1.6 percent. Investors
closely watch the “Dow Transports,”
as the index is nicknamed, on the the-
ory that a growing economy will mean
companies will have to ship more
products, increasing the profits of
transportation companies like air-
lines, railroads and trucking compa-
nies.
At their March policy meeting, Fed
policymakers debated over when the
bank should start raising interest
rates. Traditionally the Fed’s main pol-
icy tool for regulating the U.S. econo-
my, short-term rates have been near
zero since 2008 in an effort to encour-
age borrowing and economic growth,
all of which is good for stocks.
Now that the economy has mostly
recovered from the recession, an
increasing number of policymakers
believe it’s time for the Fed to start
raising rates. The question is when.
“We know higher interest rates are
coming, but we don’t know exactly
when, whether it’s 2015 or 2016,” said
Tom di Galoma, head of fixed income
rates at ED&F MAN Capital Markets.
Investors always keep a close eye on
the Fed, but they’re particularly sensi-
tive these days because the central
bank is in the process of winding down
its economic stimulus policies.
Investors worry that the bank might
act too quickly and choke off the eco-
nomic recovery.
The Dow soared 192 points on Feb.
11 after Janet Yellen, in her first public
comments since taking over as head of
the Fed from Ben Bernanke, said she
would continue the Fed’s market-
friendly, low-interest rate policies.
Confident that interest rates and
inflation would remain low, investors
bought bonds Wednesday, particularly
bonds that have shorter maturities.
The yield on the two-year Treasury
note dropped to 0.36 percent from
0.39 percent late Tuesday, a relatively
big move for that security. Yields on
the three-year and five-year notes made
similar moves.
Investors also got a dose of good
news from Corporate America.
Aluminum giant Alcoa reported an
adjusted first-quarter profit that was
well ahead of analysts’ forecasts. The
aluminum maker is typically the first
large U.S. corporation to report its
results every quarter. Alcoa rose 47
cents, or 4 percent, to $13.
Stocks rally on Fed, earnings news

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
DETROIT — Big U.S. recalls by General
Motors and Toyota have put the auto indus-
try on a record pace as companies try to
avoid bad publicity and punishment from an
increasingly aggressive government.
On Wednesday, Toyota announced it was
recalling nearly 1.8 million vehicles in the
U.S. to fix a spate of problems, including
air bags that might not inflate. It’s part of a
worldwide recall of 6.4 million cars and
trucks. So far this year, automakers have
recalled about 9 million vehicles in the U.S.
If that pace continues, the nation would
break the record of 30.8 million recalled
vehicles set in 2004.
Most of the recalls are from Toyota and
General Motors, two automakers that are
under government scrutiny and facing bad
publicity and allegations that they con-
cealed safety issues.
Toyota’s latest recalls were announced
before the company even developed specif-
ic repairs. They come two weeks after the
Justice Department skewered the Japanese
automaker for covering up problems that
caused unintended acceleration in some cars
starting in 2009. Toyota agreed to pay $1.2
billion to settle that case, but federal prose-
cutors can resurrect a wire fraud charge if the
company fails to comply with the terms of
the settlement.
Toyota’s actions come as rival GM recalls
2.6 million small cars for defective ignition
switches the company links to at least 13
deaths. Of those, 2.2 million are in the U.S.
As that crisis unfolded, GM announced
recalls of another 3.4 million U.S. vehicles.
GM is facing a Justice Department inves-
tigation, and last week its new CEO was
grilled by Congress over its handling of the
ignition recalls.
Toyota, GM recalls push U.S. to near-record pace

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TOKYO — Toyota Motor Corp. is recall-
ing nearly 1.8 million vehicles in the U.S.
for various safety problems, including air
bags that may fail to deploy.
The Japanese automaker announced the
U.S. recall Wednesday as part of a broader
recall of 6.39 million vehicles — and 27
Toyota models — globally.
In the U.S., the recall includes:
— 1.3 million vehicles with faulty elec-
trical connections that could cause the air
bags to deactivate. Included are the 2009-
2010 Corolla, 2009-2010 Matrix, 2008-
2010 Highlander, 2009-2010 Tacoma,
2006-2008 RAV4, 2006-2010 Yaris and
2009-2010 Pontiac Vibe. If the air bags
deactivate, they could fail to deploy after a
crash.
— 472,500 small cars with defective
springs in the front seat rails, which could
prevent the seats from locking in place.
Included are the 2006-2010 Yaris hatch-
back, 2007-2010 Yaris sedan and the
2008-2010 Scion XD.
Toyota said it is currently working on
remedies for the problems. Dealers will
replace the defective parts for free when
replacement parts are available.
The Pontiac Vibe, which is made by
General Motors Co., is included in the
recall because Toyota designed and engi-
neered it for GM when the two companies
shared a factory in California.

Poll: Most Americans
say filing taxes easy
WASHINGTON — Struggling to figure out
your federal tax return? You’re not alone, but
you’re in the minority.
With the tax filing deadline looming next
week, a majority of Americans say complet-
ing a federal tax return is easy, according to
a new Associated Press-GfK poll.
The findings defy conventional wisdom in
Washington, where politicians have made
careers out of promising a simpler tax sys-
tem. In another blow to advocates of tax
reform, almost no one is willing to pay
higher taxes in exchange for a simpler code.
“If you’ve got the equivalent of a high
school degree and you know how to do
math, it’s very simple,” said Sara Thornton,
a small business owner from East Granby,
Conn.
Only 7 percent of those surveyed say they
would be willing to pay more in federal
taxes if the process of filling out a tax return
were easier. Some 90 percent say “no,
thanks.”
“No, because I don’t know that it is that
difficult,” said Alicia Brown of suburban Des
Moines, Iowa. “We already pay outlandish
taxes because we live in Iowa. We have very
high real estate taxes.”

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK — As Twitter looks to broad-
en its appeal beyond its 241 million users,
the company is introducing a redesign of
profile pages that includes bigger photos,
more user controls and a distinct resem-
blance to Facebook.
“Moment by moment, your Twitter profile
shows the world who you are,” the company
wrote in a blog post Tuesday. “Starting
today, it will be even easier (and, we think,
more fun) to express yourself through a new
and improved Web profile.”
As part of changes coming in the next few
weeks, users who access Twitter via the Web
will notice larger photos on their profile
pages. Besides profile photos on the left
corner of the page, the redesign includes a
large banner photo that resembles the big
rectangular cover photos on Facebook
pages. Users will be able to “pin” one of
their tweets to the top of the page to give
others an idea of the topics they like to
tweet about. In addition, tweets that receive
the most interest from other users will
appear slightly larger.
The more visual look is an attempt to
attract people who may be intimidated by
Twitter’s onslaught of text filled with quirky
acronyms, at-symbols and hashtags. The
changes come at a time when Facebook is
adding features to its site that are Twitter-
like, highlighting the way the two compa-
nies are jockeying for people’s time and
advertisers’ dollars.
Is Twitter saying a picture is worth 140
characters? Perhaps not. The new profiles
don’t apply to Twitter’s mobile app, which
is a more popular way to access the service
than the website.

WASHINGTON — How is it that a few doc-
tors take in millions of dollars from
Medicare?
Explanations for Wednesday’s eye-pop-
ping numbers from Medicare’s massive
claims database ranged from straightforward
to what the government considers suspi-
cious, as the medical world confronted a new
era of scrutiny.
The long-sought release of Medicare data
revealed just how much the program paid
individual doctors in 2012.
An analysis by the Associated Press
found that a tiny group, 344 out of more
than 825,000 doctors, received $3 million
or more apiece — a threshold that raises
eyebrows for the government’s own inves-
tigators. Overall, about 2 percent of clini-
cians accounted for one-fourth of pay-
ments.
Deputy administrator Jon Blum said
Wednesday that Medicare will now take a
closer look at doctors whose payments
exceed certain levels. Blum told reporters he
did not want to reveal those thresholds
because that would tip off people trying to
game the system.
“We know there is waste in the system, we
know there is fraud in the system,” he said.
“We want the public to help identify spend-
ing that doesn’t make sense.”

The Burlingame and Carlmont boys’ golf
teams faced off at San Mateo’s Poplar Creek
Golf Course with the Peninsula Athletic
League Bay Division title on the line Tuesday.
The Panther came into the match with a per-
fect 9-0 mark in PAL play, with the Scots one
game back — with their only loss coming to
Burlingame by a stroke earlier in the season.
Burlingame went out and shot a season-best
193.
And it wasn’t even close. Carlmont put
together an even better round with all five
scoring golfers shooting round in the 30s to
pull out a 184-193 win over the Panthers.
“It was the best round of the year for,” said
Burlingame coach Steve Mills. “Just not good
enough.”
With the victory, Carlmont (11-1 PAL) all
but clinches the Bay Division title and an
automatic team berth in the Central Coast
Section tournament next month.
“We knew it was going to be close,” said
Carlmont coach Johnny Hsu. “I think my
guys really wanted it. They’ve been talking
about [this match] all week.”
Jack Tilly and Mason Holman each fired 1-
under 35s, Jack Carlson finished with a 2-over
37, Finnegan Tilly shot a 38 and Justin
Chandra finished with a 39.
“I know my guys,” Hsu said. “They’re all
talented golfers. I expect them to come in with
these scores. They pulled through today.”
It’s not like Burlingame (9-1) played poor-
l y. The Panthers had four golfers shoot under
40, led by Jeff Carney’s and Matt Teahan’s 2-
over 37s. Shawn Chang and Andrew
Longworth both fired 39s. Nick Teahan round-
ed out the scoring for Burlingame with a 41.
Both teams flourished under less-than-ideal
conditions. Wind is a given at Poplar Creek
and Wednesday was no exception. The other
challenge the golfers had to deal with was the
maintenance of the greens on the course,
which were just sanded earlier in the day, mak-
ing putting an adventure.
Doing the happy dance

Jack Carlson,Carlmont’s No.3 golfer,pumps his fist after draining a 55-foot putt. He later holed
out from a greenside bunker for a birdie as the Scots beat Burlingame to all but wrap up the
PAL Bay Division title at Poplar Creek Wednesday afternoon.
T
uesday marked the 40th anniver-
sary of Hank Aaron’s 715th home
run, surpassing the 714 home
runs hit by New York Yankees’ legend
Babe Ruth.
As could be expected, remembering
Aaron’s accomplishment opens up one of
the biggest bar topics of all time: who is
the true home run king?
Aaron went on to finish with 755 round
trippers and Major League Baseball com-
missioner Bud Selig still acknowledges
that as the record — as do many others.
Or is it still Babe
Ruth? The man sin-
gle-handedly
changed the way the
game was played as
his mark of 714 was
thought of as
untouchable.
What about
Japanese great
Sadaharu Oh? The
Yomiuri Giants leg-
end, he of the high
leg kick, finished
with a world record
868 long balls.
How do you feel about Josh Gibson?
The legendary Negro Leagues player was
called the “black Babe Ruth.” Since there
are no complete Negro Leagues statistics,
no one knows for sure home many bombs
he hit, but the general consensus is
Gibson hit 900 four baggers.
The answer is none of the above. Until
MLB records are no longer considered the
end all, be all, the correct answer is:
Barry Bonds.
Why? Because the record book says so.
In MLB’s official record book, you will
find Bonds at the top of the list, with 762
next to his name. It’s right there in black
and white. Until baseball can find a way
to erase the record, that is the mark to
beat.
We all know the reason. Bonds’
involvement with PEDs during the
“Steroid Era” put a stain on the all-time
home run record and many people refuse

MINNEAPOLIS — Jim Johnson struggled
again. The Oakland Athletics picked up their
new closer with a strong finish.
Derek Norris hit a three-run homer in the
11th inning, and the A’s bounced back from
another blown save by Johnson to beat the
Minnesota Twins 7-4 on Wednesday.
“When someone doesn’t come through the
next guy comes up and fills in for him. ... It’s
a nice chemistry we have here for that to hap-
pen,” Norris said.
Jared Burton (0-1) gave up the one-out drive
by the backup catcher Norris, who went deep
on Tuesday night, too. Dan Otero (1-0) got
the last eight outs for the victory in relief of
Johnson, who has given up seven runs, nine
hits and six walks in five appearances with the
A’s. He’s simply been falling behind in too
many counts.
“Whatever he’s got to do to change that he
will,” Norris said, adding: “He’s going to go
on a roll, and this isn’t going to be a matter
any longer I don’t think.”
Minnesota trailed 4-0
after a rocky first inning
by Phil Hughes, who need-
ed 40 pitches to get his
first out. Jason Kubel
homered in the second and
Brian Dozier went deep in
the eighth.
Johnson, who had 50
saves for Baltimore last
season, gave up the third
of four hits by Kubel to start the ninth. With
the bases loaded and one out, Johnson nearly
had Eduardo Escobar struck out, but a foul tip
was ruled on his two-strike swing. Escobar
then poked a single into to left field to cut
Oakland’s lead to 4-3.
A one-hop throw to third baseman Josh
Donaldson nearly forced out Kurt Suzuki, who
was ruled safe, and a video review ruled the call
stood — meaning there was not “clear and
convincing” evidence to overturn it.

OAKLAND — David Lee’s latest injury
with Golden State has been keeping him
awake at night wondering if he will ever get
to go through the playoffs healthy.
After tearing his right hip flexor in his
first postseason game last year, Lee is try-
ing to rehabilitate an even more perplexing
injury at the worst time again. The power
forward said he has damage in the nerve that
connects from his back to the upper part of
his right hamstring but hopes to return for
the playoffs, if not sooner, though his
recovery could take longer.
“I’m so frustrated that I’m almost not frus-
trated anymore,” said Lee, who missed four
games in last year’s playoffs before playing
limited minutes with the hip injury. “Even
watching practice is just miserable for me.
It’s such a fun time of year, and obviously
I’d be lying if last year how the season
ended didn’t factor into that.”
The Warriors’ co-captain participated in a
portion of Wednesday’s light practice,
working up a sweat on his
gray shirt before shoot-
ing free throws when
reporters were allowed to
enter the gym. He said he
feels no pain while run-
ning, but when he tries to
push off or make sharp
cuts, his leg shuts down.
Lee has missed six
straight games and is
expected to sit out again Thursday night
against Denver. After hosting the Nuggets,
the Warriors (48-29) have only four games
left in the regular season.
Lee said there is no timetable for his
return from the injury, which the team ini-
tially called a strained hamstring. He said
the most difficult part of the rehabilitation
process is that unlike muscle strains or
bone breaks, nerve damage is more difficult
for doctors to predict how long he will be
out.
“That’s the only thing that has really wor-

be back for playoffs

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

SAN FRANCISCO — Paul Goldschmidt hit
a three-run homer and sacrifice fly to pound
Tim Lincecum again, and the Arizona
Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants
7-3 on Wednesday night.
Gerardo Parra hit a two-run homer and Eric
Chavez added an RBI triple for his first hit in
his first start of the year for Arizona.
Goldschmidt is batting .542 (13-for-24)
with seven homers and 17 RBIs all-time
against Lincecum, including a two-run homer
last week at Chase Field.
Goldschmidt has been such a nemesis for
Lincecum, the exasperated two-time NL Cy
Young Award winner said last week he might
have to throw underhanded to try to stymie
the slugger.
Michael Morse and Buster Posey hit solo
homers against Bronson Arroyo (1-0), who
won his third straight decision against San
Francisco.
Arroyo was staked to a nice lead early and
worked five innings to earn his first win since
joining the D-backs in February. He had a no-
decision against the Giants last Thursday.
The right-hander allowed six hits and three
runs, struck out two and walked one. He beat
the Giants twice last season, including a
seven-hitter at AT&T Park last July 22 with
the Reds for his sixth career shutout in an 11-
0 victory.
Josh Collmenter, who soon could join the
struggling Arizona rotation, pitched four
scoreless innings of relief for his first major
league save.
Goldschmidt got things going at AT&T
Park again. Parra led off the game with a
triple, Martin Prado walked and Goldschmidt
sent a 1-1 fastball into the elevated right-
field arcade. He added a sacrifice fly in the
third, then was booed each time he stepped
into the batter’s box in
the late innings.
Parra connected for his
first homer of the year
with two outs in the
fourth.
Angel Pagan singled in
the first and has hit safely
in all nine games for the
Giants, batting .462 with
seven multihit games
Lincecum (0-1) lasted just four innings,
tagged for seven runs and seven hits. The
right-hander received a $35 million, two-
year deal in late October to stay put with San
Francisco rather than test free agency.
Pablo Sandoval went 1 for 4 and is off to a
slow start hitting .143 for San Francisco.
Manager Bruce Bochy is confident that even
though the Giants have tabled talks about a
contract extension for the third baseman, it
won’t affect the 2012 World Series MVP on
the field.
The D-backs avoided dropping to 2-9 for
just the third time in franchise history.
Not es: Goldschmidt’s homer marked the
22nd time an opposing right-handed hitter
homered to AT&TPark’s right field. ... After a
slow start by the rotation, Arizona officials
are discussing changes. Manager Kirk
Gibson expects Trevor Cahill (0-3) to make
his next start Sunday, but Collmenter will be
stretched out and threw 53 pitches. “There is
other personnel that will have to be consid-
ered,” Gibson said. ... Ryan Vogelsong (0-0)
pitches Thursday for the Giants against
Randall Delgado (0-1). ... The Giants will
hold “Farewell to the Stick” night Thursday
to honor their former home of Candlestick
Park. The NFL’s 49ers played their final sea-
son in the venue last year.

ANAHEIM — Patrick Maroon scored two
goals, John Gibson made 36 saves in his
second NHL start, and the Anaheim Ducks
clinched their second straight Pacific
Division title with a 5-2 victory over the
San Jose Sharks on Wednesday night.
Corey Perry scored his 43rd goal as the
Ducks finished off the second-place Sharks
with a three-goal third period to earn the first
back-to-back division titles in franchise
history.
Matt Beleskey also scored for the Ducks as
they pushed one point ahead of St. Louis for
the overall lead in the Western Conference,
although the Blues have a game in hand.
Jason Demers and Logan Couture scored
for the Sharks, who have lost four of six
down the stretch. Antti Niemi allowed three
goals on 19 shots before getting pulled.
San Jose could have pulled within one
point of the Ducks with a regulation victory,
but Alex Stalock replaced Niemi midway
through the second period after Maroon
scored the tiebreaking goal on a stoppable
shot through his legs.
Beleskey added a beautiful goal late in the
period, and Jakob Silfverberg scored a short-
handed goal on an empty net with 1:38 left
to wrap it up.
Anaheim will face one of the West’s two
wild-card playoff teams — Minnesota,
Dallas or Phoenix — in the first round.
The Sharks are locked into a first-round
playoff rematch with the Los Angeles
Kings, who eliminated them in a bruising
seven-game series in the second round last
spring. The California rivals are meeting in
the postseason for the third time in four
years.
The Ducks led the overall NHL standings
for much of the season until St. Louis and
San Jose pushed ahead of them last month.
Anaheim reclaimed the lead two weeks ago
and finally finished off the Sharks, who are
in the playoffs for the 10th straight season.
In the biggest game of the regular season,
Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau made the
mildly surprising choice to start the 20-
year-old Gibson, who shut out Vancouver on
Monday in his NHL debut, over longtime
starter Jonas Hiller.
Maroon had the first multigoal game of his
short career for the Ducks, coming through
from the fourth line to give him 10 goals on
the season — one more than Teemu Selanne,
who assisted on both scores.
The Ducks also got a boost from the return
of U.S. Olympic defenseman Cam Fowler,
who had missed 12 games since March 14
with an injury.
Perry tied it for Anaheim on a drive to the
net with 2.1 seconds left in the period, hold-
ing off Justin Braun with one arm and scor-
ing with the other. The former NHL MVP
trails only Washington’s Alex Ovechkin in
the league goal-scoring race.
Maroon put the Ducks ahead early in the
second period with a wraparound goal off a
setup from Selanne, but Couture tied it with
a sharp-angled shot for his 22nd goal.
Selanne then got an outlet pass from
Hampus Lindholm and sent a cross-ice feed
to Maroon, who scored again 6:13 after his
first goal to put Anaheim back ahead.
Beleskey increased the Ducks’ lead with an
exceptional play, toe-dragging past a prone
Brent Burns and beating Stalock for his
eighth goal.
NOTES: Gibson was recalled because of
an upper-body injury for Frederik Andersen.
Hiller’s Danish backup has missed three
games. ... The Sharks scratched F Marty
Havlat, who hadn’t missed a game since
March 8. ... Anaheim D Luca Sbisa sat out
with an upper-body injury.

Derrick Gordon had kept his secret for too
long.
He couldn’t be himself. He considered giv-
ing up the sport he loved. Because he was
gay, he distanced himself from teammates.
“I was living life in shame,” the UMass
guard said in a telephone interview with The
Associated Press. “It took a toll on me.”
Gordon became the first openly gay play-
er in Division I men’s basketball on
Wednesday, making the announcement on
ESPN and Outsports. Now he hopes to
inspire others in similar situations.
“It’s crazy that I’m the first,” he told the
AP. “I didn’t know that it would be this long,
but if I’m the first, then I’ll start it off.”
Previous announcements by NBA player
Jason Collins and Missouri All-American
defensive end Michael Sam made his deci-
sion easier. Gordon said he talked with
Collins several times before making his
announcement.
“There was a time that I didn’t want to play
basketball anymore and that’s the worst
feeling ever,” he said. “Right now I’m
happy. I’m free just to live my life.”
Gordon was the Minutemen’s fourth-lead-
ing scorer with 9.4 points per game last sea-
son. UMass went 24-9 and reached the
NCAA tournament for the first time since
1998. It lost its first game to Tennessee on
March 21.
Nine days later Gordon told his parents,
who have been supportive. The sophomore
informed UMass coach Derek Kellogg the
next day.
“He said it didn’t matter. He’s still going
to love me for who I am,” Gordon said. “He
said ‘It just might make you play a lot better
next season than you did last season.’ So we
joked around a lot.”
Two days later, he told
his teammates at an emo-
tional meeting. They,
too, supported him.
Center Tyler
Bergantino roomed with
Gordon as freshmen.
“The fact that he’s gay
doesn’t change any-
thing,” Bergantino said.
“We didn’t know he was
gay before. We know he’s gay now. But he’s
the exact same person.”
Gordon said some teammates at the
Amherst, Mass., school probably have
known since last summer. He sat out the pre-
vious season after transferring from Western
Kentucky to be closer to his family in New
Jersey, where he played at high school pow-
erhouse St. Patrick.
“They could sense it because I kind of sep-
arated myself from the team,” Gordon said.
“I didn’t really hang out with them as far as
going to parties and stuff. I really kind of
kept to myself, kept quiet. We went on road
trips — I’d sit by myself and they were
always wondering why. I did it because I did-
n’t want to put myself in a situation where
maybe something happens and they end up
finding out. Then what? I’m not going to
know how to handle the situation.”
Gordon held off making the announce-
ment to keep from diverting attention from
the NCAA tournaments, which ended
Monday night for the men and Tuesday
night for the women.
“I’ve been getting tons and tons of sup-
port,” Gordon said. “I’m barely getting any-
thing negative.”
That may be coming, but he’s confident he
can handle it.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Jordan Spieth speaks
with reverence when hanging out with the
greats of the game at Augusta National.
It’s always “Mr. Watson” this, “Mr.
Crenshaw” that.
But, in his first trip to the Masters, Spieth
feels he’s got as good a chance as anyone to
capture a green jacket.
That’s the way it is with these kids today.
They’re not very patient.
A new wave of 20-somethings is taking
golf by storm, eager to make their mark and
not at all beaten down by the aura of Tiger
Woods, who hasn’t won a major champi-
onship since 2008 and isn’t even at Augusta
this week as he recovers from the latest in a
series of injuries.
Nine players under the age of 30 have won
PGA Tour events since the official start of
the season last fall, including a pair of vic-
tories by brash 23-year-old Patrick Reed.
That list doesn’t even include perhaps the
best of the youngsters: Rory McIlroy,
already a two-time major champion at age
24, and Spieth, who last summer became the
youngest Tour winner since the Depression
before he even celebrated his 20th birthday.
“It helps me when I’m on the course when
I can see younger and younger guys winning
golf tournaments,” Spieth said. “I believe
that it doesn’t take as much experience as
maybe guys would have thought five years
ago, six years ago.”
Arnold Palmer is certainly impressed with
a group that also includes Webb Simpson,
Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Harris English,
Chris Kirk, Scott Stallings, Russell Henley
and Chesson Hadley.
“I’ve been watching these young guys,”
Palmer said Tuesday, “and it’s amazing how
they hit the golf ball, how well they play.
I’ve never ceased to be pleased and surprised
to see the physical conditioning that these
young people are coming with, to see their
ability, to see how they play the game.
“I look at them and you think about a 23,
22, 25-year-old, and you see the shots they
are hitting and how far they are hitting the
golf ball, I’m startled, surprised and
pleased.”
Spieth credits players such as Woods and
Phil Mickelson for inspiring this new gen-
eration — and not just in the United States.
Look at someone such as Japan’s Hideki
Matsuyama, who turned pro a year ago and,
before the season was done, had tied for
sixth at the British Open.
He’s only 22, and getting ready for his
first Masters as a paid player.
“Everybody in the field has a chance to
win it,” said Matsuyama, who was the low
amateur at the 2011 Masters. “I feel like I’m
one of those, too, that has a chance.”
Spieth feels the same way, even though
he’s playing the Masters for the first time.
The last Augusta rookie to claim the green
jacket was Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979. The only
other ones to do it were the first two win-
ners: Horton Smith in 1934 and Gene
Sarazen in ‘35.
“It’s getting younger,” Spieth said, talk-
ing about the potential contenders. “The
game is getting better, younger, and vastly
spreading to different and more places. I
think that we’ll continue to see younger and
younger players step up and be able to win
early, such as we have.”
Reed is as confident as anyone. He’s won
three times in seven months going back to
last season, including a World Golf
Championship, and declared on national
television that he already feels like one of
the top five players in the world.
For the record, the Masters will be his first
major.
“It doesn’t matter if you’ve played here
once or if you’ve played here 50 times,”
Reed said. “When it comes down to it, it’s
just going to be one of those things that
whoever is playing the best is going to
walk away with the trophy. ”
Of course, if he was a betting man, he’d be
betting on himself.
“Experience always helps,” Reed said,
“but at the same time, with how many
young guys are coming out and winning and
all that kind of thing, I feel like ... whoever
it playing the best — whether you have
experience or don’t — is going to pull off a
victory. ”
Woods’ troubles — personal issues, a
body that’s starting to break down, the
longest drought of his career in the majors
— has certainly contributed to that new
swagger among the youngsters.
There were plenty of talented players who
came along at the same time as Woods, but
they knew their chances of winning the
biggest tournament were pretty much nil
when he was on his game.
Now, there’s no such roadblock standing
in the way.
These guys feel like they can win any
tournament.
“It’s changed now,” Spieth said. “With
the younger guys not being scared to win, I
think that can only be better for the game.”
Kids are definitely all right heading into Masters
“I’ve been watching these young guys. and it’s amazing
how they hit the golf ball, how well they play. … I look
at them and you think about a 23, 22, 25-year-old, and
you see the shots they are hitting and how far they are
hitting the golf ball, I’m startled, surprised and pleased.”
— Arnold Palmer

to acknowledge Bonds’ number.
You can argue the merits of the other
players I mentioned until you’re blue in the
face, the correct answer will still be Bonds.
Because you can’t pick and choose which
records you accept and which you do not.
Baseball tried that once. When Roger
Maris hit home run No. 61 to break Babe
Ruth’s single-season home run record, it
went into the record book with an asterisk
next to it. Many believed that there be a
distinction between Ruth’s record set in
154 games and Maris’ number accom-
plished in 162 contests.
In 1991, 30 years after Maris set the
mark, the asterisk was officially removed
from the record book. Of course, several
players — including Bonds — have since
surpassed Maris’ number.
Cincinnati Reds great Pete Rose is still
the all-time hit leaders with 4,256 knocks
over a 23-year career, despite the fact he
has been banished from baseball making
for betting on the game.
Anyone who has played baseball in the
United States or is a fan of the game
acknowledge the records set in Major
League Baseball are the official numbers for
the game. Officially, the home run king is
Barry Bonds’ 762. Love it or hate, that’s
the number.

Menlo School announced Wednesday for-
mer boys’ varsity basketball coach Kris
Weems is the school’s new athletic direc-
tor.
He replaces Craig Schoof, who
announced in February he was stepping
down as A.D. and baseball coach at the end
of the season after 27 years with the
school.
“I am really excited about the opportuni-
ty and to be back with the Menlo commu-
nity,” Weems said in a press release. “I
learned a lot at Menlo as a coach, then that
experience was taken to another level when
I joined the development office and got the
chance to be involved on a daily basis with
the staff and students.”
Not only does the job cover the Knights’
prep program, Weems will also be tasked
with implementing a game plan to cover
athletics from sixth through 12th grades.
It’s an exciting way to run a program,”
Weems said. “It allows for some symmetry
and correlation that begins with sixth
grade and builds a bridge, so that the
coaches and staff can give the students the
support they need as they’re growing and
maturing. We can help with the process
throughout — to make sure that they have
a good experience on the floor, so that
they’ll be better students as well.”
Following a four-year career playing bas-
ketball at Stanford where he was part of
four Cardinal teams that qualified for the
NCAAtournament, Weems was named
Menlo’s boys’ basketball coach in 2004
and guided the Knights to a 138-60 record
and the 2008 and 2009 Central Coast
Section Division IV titles.
He left following the 2011 season to
take a position in the Warriors coaching
ranks, where he worked in player develop-
ment and scouting.
Before leaving, however, Weems
immersed himself in the Menlo communi-
t y, working in the school’s development
office, where he coordinated the school’s
hall of fame and helped raise funds.
“Kris knows the school well and under-
stands at a deep level the challenges and
opportunities of building a strong athletics
program in an environment of academic
excellence,” Menlo Head of School Than
Healy said in a press release.

And talk about adventure. While he didn’t
finish with his team’s best score, Carlmont’s
Carlson definitely had the most exciting
round. On the par-3 No. 3 hole, Carlson’s
drive leaked out to the left and landed near the
fringe on the left side of the green, leaving
him about 55 feet for a birdie.
Carlson stepped up and stroked his putt. The
ball hopped and skipped over the sand before
disappearing into the cup, resulting in an
extended fist-pumping session from Carlson.
“I was just trying to get it close. I’m not
really a good putter,” Carlson said. “It totally
helped my mindset (for the rest of the round).
It gave me a lot of confidence.”
It was after Carlson’s putt that Mills knew
his team might be in some trouble.
“My guys were rattled (by Carlson’s long
putt). They just watched a draino from 55 feet
on sanded greens. … Mentally, they got down
after seeing a couple good shots (by
Carlmont),” Mills said. “Credit Carlmont.
They’re a good team. They shot lights out on
bad greens.”
That confidence showed itself again on the
short par-4 No. 7 hole. Carlson’s tee shot
plugged itself into the face of a greenside
bunker. His first attempt out of the sand was
simply used to get a better lie and on his sec-
ond attempt, he rattled the flag and dropped the
ball in the cup from about 30 feet for another
birdie.
“I had a great lie (on the third shot),”
Carlson said. “Any time you hole out a bunker
shot, it’s against the odds.”
While Carlson, the Scots’ No. 3 golfer, was
making miraculous shots, their top two
golfers — Jack Tilly and Mason Holman
calmly went about their business. Both had
only two holes where they shot five or more
and Holman closed his nine-hole round by
going birdie-birdie-birdie.

games in terms of the crowd. I have a tough
skin for that,” he said. “They can say whatev-
er they want.”
During the year he sat out, he considered
giving up the sport but changed his mind “just
because I don’t want to feel like I can’t be
myself because our society doesn’t accept it,”
Gordon said. “I want to be able to live my life
happy and play the sport that I love.”
And help others who haven’t come out.
“I just hope I can give kids in general the
confidence to just come out and live their lives
and be free,” he said.
Collins made a trailblazing announcement
last April when he came out in an interview
with Sports Illustrated. In February, he became
the first openly gay male athlete in the four
major North American pro sports leagues
when he signed with the Brooklyn Nets.
He tweeted that he was “so proud” of
Gordon: “Another brave young man who is
going to make it easier for so many others to
live an authentic life.”
Sam, projected as a middle-round prospect
in next month’s NFL draft, came out in inter-
views with ESPN, The New York Times and
Outsports in February after his college career
ended.
Sam also tweeted congratulations to
Gordon: “You have so many in your corner and
we’re all proud and rooting for you.”
Current NBA players Kyrie Irving of
Cleveland and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist of
Charlotte played with Gordon in high school.
“I thought it was a great day for him and his
family,” Irving said before the Cavaliers host-
ed the Detroit Pistons. “I’m proud of him. It’s
a big step, not only in his life but in his career
to get the weight of the world off his shoul-
ders.”
“Derrick was a great teammate and is an even
better friend,” Kidd-Gilchrist said before the
Bobcats’ game in Washington. “I admire his
courage and willingness to share his story.”

Donaldson said he closed his glove on the ball before
Suzuki’s foot hit. But A’s manager Bob Melvin didn’t waste
time arguing, instead replacing Johnson with Otero.
“I just had to go get him. I didn’t feel great about it, but I had
to do it. Keep working to get him right,” Melvin said, declin-
ing to speculate on whether Johnson’s closer job was in jeop-
ardy.
Dozier hit a sacrifice fly to right field, just deep enough for
Suzuki to race home and sneak a hand onto the plate in front of
the tag by Norris. Another umpire-initiated review confirmed
the safe call, and the crowd of 22,973 cheered loudly when the
video board provided the proof.
There was more drama before Norris came up again. Glen
Perkins struck out Donaldson to end the 10th inning, and the
Twins closer shouted some obscenities and pointed at
Donaldson, who gestured and “started to red line,” as
Donaldson put it afterward. Donaldson’s path to Perkins was
cut off by the Twins, and after the dugouts mostly emptied the
tension de-escalated.
Donaldson nearly homered during that at-bat, but the ball
drifted foul. Perkins said he thought Donaldson was admiring
his drive too long.
“I don’t feel like I disrespected him at all. I’m up there trying
to win a game for our team, and he’s trying to win a game for his
team. Juices are flowing,” Donaldson said.
Said Perkins: “There were things that happened in that at-bat
that we both could have done differently. So we’ll leave it at
that.”
Donaldson hit an RBI double after Hughes walked the first
two batters of the game. Brandon Moss tacked on a two-run sin-
gle, and Alberto Callaspo added an RBI single. None of the hits
were particularly hard, but the damage was done.
Hughes walked three and struck out three in five innings, with
five hits surrendered. Twins starters have one win in eight turns,
with a collective 6.43 ERA.
Oakland starter Jesse Chavez pitched seven smooth innings
with no walks and nine strikeouts. A’s starters have allowed
three runs or fewer in each of their first eight games, for a 2.02
ERA.
NOTES: The A’s held CF Coco Crisp out again following a
cortisone shot he had in his left wrist and likely will do so
again on Thursday. ... The Twins honored Gardenhire before the
game for his 1,000th career victory by giving him a hand-craft-
ed humidor filled with, yep, 1,000 cigars. ... Oakland has eight
straight wins over Minnesota, all with at least seven runs. ...
The A’s will send RHPDan Straily (0-1, 4.50 ERA) to the mound
for the series finale, and RHP Mike Pelfrey (0-1, 5.06 ERA) is
set to pitch for the Twins.

ried me,” Lee said. “Just because if they were to tell me it’s
going to be two weeks, I can mentally think, ‘All right. I
can be back in a week. I think I’m a pretty fast healer. We can
go from there.’ But just the fact that they say sometimes
these heal in two days, sometimes it takes two months. We
don’t know. But the good thing is, from what they’ve told
me, as long as it continues to progress they think it’s going
to be weeks still. So I have a good chance of being there
when I need to be there.”
Coach Mark Jackson said versatile forward Draymond
Green will continue to start in Lee’s place. But he hopes for
the team and for Lee — who made the playoffs for the first
time in eight years in the NBAlast season — that his start-
ing power forward can suit up when it matters most.
“I’m sure it’s frustrating,” Jackson said. “He’s a guy that’s
waited a long time to be in this position and, once again,
not a hundred percent. He’s a guy that works his tail off and
he’s doing everything possible, just like last year, to make
sure he’s able to contribute and do his part for this basket-
ball team.”
Lee’s injury occurred in the fourth quarter of Golden State’s
loss to San Antonio on March 22. He dribbled to his right
and spun left, then got bumped in the side and came down
awkwardly after making a hook shot.
At the time, Lee said he thought he pulled his hamstring.
But a few days later, he felt pain when he tried to play. Lee
said he had two MRI exams last week — one on his ham-
string, and a follow-up one on his back — that revealed the
nerve damage.
He said he rested Monday and Tuesday and took medication
to help the inflammation subside. He plans to do some light
workouts and strength training the rest of the week and, if
his body allows, get back on the court in hopes of playing
before the playoffs.
“The important thing is I’m feeling better each day,” Lee
said. “The only thing that would be really a concern to me is
if I was plateauing out or I was feeling worse and worse.

The Ultimate Warrior put on his signature airbrushed trench

the wrestler billed as hailing from Parts Unknown was back
home in the wrestling ring.
“Speak to me, Warriors!” he bellowed on Monday night’s
“Raw”, back on TVafter an 18-year absence.
He soaked up the applause from a New Orleans crowd chanting
his name and pulled out a neon mask that replicated the face
paint he wore in the ring for every main event battle with Hulk
Hogan and Randy “Macho Man” Savage in the 1990s. Warrior
cut a promo to show how much he appreciated his return to the
WWE.
Less than 24 hours later, Warrior, one of the most colorful
stars in pro wrestling history, was dead. He was 54.
“We are all grateful to have had the opportunity to get the clo-
sure with him, to work to get him back on that platform,” said
Paul “Triple H” Levesque, a wrestler and top WWE executive.
“Knowing him now, there could have been no better send-off,
really, for him, than that. It was everything he would have
dreamed off.”
After ending his estrangement with the company, Warrior was
in the spotlight again earlier this week, making appearances at
WrestleMania 30 and on “Monday Night Raw,” and he was
inducted into the WWE Hall of fame.
His last promo on WWE’s flagship show seems almost eerie
now with his triumphant return overshadowed by his sudden
death.
“No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own,” Warrior
said. “Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs
breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life
makes the blood pulse through the body of others, it makes
them bleed deeper and something larger than life, then his
essence, his spirit, will be immortalized.”
The Ultimate Warrior personified the larger-than-life cartoon
characters who helped skyrocket the WWE into a mainstream
phenomenon in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Warrior dressed in face paint, had tassels dangling from his
super-sized biceps and sprinted to the ring when his theme music
hit. He’d shake the ropes, grunt and howl, and thump his chest
while the crowd went wild for the popular good guy.
In an era when the WWE targeted kids as its primary audience,
Warrior was a perfect fit with a spastic entrance, blood-pumping
music, flowing locks and always dressed in electric colors from
head to boots.

The arrival of spring means that flea mar-
kets are reopening for business around the
country. Shoppers will hunt for treasures
amid acres of used goods. A few will come
home with just the right vintage art or
quirky piece of furniture to make their home
more beautiful.
Jaime Rummerfield, co-founder of
Woodson & Rummerfield’s House of Design
in Los Angeles, sometimes mixes flea-mar-
ket finds with high-end new furnishings to
decorate the homes of her celebrity clients.
“The beauty of flea markets,” she says, “is
you never know what you will find. There’s
nothing like being outdoors or in a place
off the beaten path rummaging through old
treasures.”
Los Angeles-based interior designer
Brian Patrick Flynn, creator of the
FlynnsideOut design blog, also hunts for
vintage pieces: “I shop second-hand regard-
less of my project’s budget or client’s level
of taste,” he says. “Vintage and thrift is the
best way to add one-of-a-kind flair to a space
without insanely high cost.”
There is luck involved, of course. But
skill also plays a role. As you browse
crowded tables of used things this spring,
how can you find the treasures that will give
your home an infusion of style while avoid-
ing decorating disasters?
Here, Flynn, Rummerfield and another
interior designer who shops for vintage
decor — Lee Kleinhelter of the Atlanta-
based design firm and retail store Pieces —
tell how they do it.
WHEN TO GO
Winter and early spring are perfect for
flea-market shopping, says Flynn.
“Since ‘thrifting’ and ‘antiquing’ are often
Ask a Designer: Tips for flea-market shoppers
Once you get home, use flea market finds sparingly. Mix new pieces with the things you
already own.A few big pieces mixed with some smaller ones added to your existing stuff can
instantly take an unfinished space and make it feel way more finished and remarkably personal.

Those drawn to 19th century style
may be pleased to learn that vintage
garden decor is a trend this spring and
summer.
The look involves florals, weathered
wood, wire, period typography, bird
motifs and accessories, and other ele-
ments with a Victorian vibe, says Tom
Mirabile, a trend watcher for Lifetime
Brands.
The appeal lies largely in the era’s
garden-as-haven aesthetic, he says.
“We look at the Victorian age as an
era when there was just a lot of time,”
he said at an industry trends seminar
earlier this year at the NY Now trade
show.
Conservatories, greenhouses and
aviaries were popular in stately
Victorian-era homes, but even modest
residences might have a little bird-
cage. Fashionable too were ferns,
palms and terrariums.
Pottery Barn’s got miniature green-
houses this season made of white-
painted distressed pine and glass, per-
fect terrariums for small plants. A
replica of a vintage birdcage is made of
wire painted hunter green; it’s tall
enough to house an elegant orchid, but
would also work as a tabletop accent.
On a grander scale is the retailer’s
Conservatory bird cage, a nearly 5-
foot-long mahogany and wire piece
that would fit on a console table or
atop a long shelf. While it’s dramatic
in and of itself, a collection of objects
would look amazing inside it.
(www.potterybarn.com)
Floral motifs — and roses in particu-
lar — were all the rage during the
Victorian era. Art and textiles featured
illustrated flora and fauna from home
and exotic parts of the world.
Bradbury & Bradbury now offers a
couple of art wallpapers derived from
illustrations by period artists William
Morris and Walter Crane. Fenway has
an Art Nouveau-style pattern with iris-
es at its heart, while Woodland show-
cases the artistry of both Morris and
Crane — winsome rabbits and long-
legged deer cavort across a leafy land-
scape. (www.bradbury.com)
Designer Voytek Brylowski offers
prints of works by Victorian illustra-
tors Mary and Elizabeth Kirby.
Parrots, toucans, lilies and humming-
birds are hand-colored, vibrant exam-
ples that can be mounted in simple
frames and placed near a patio door —
or anywhere the gentility and charm of
the period might be appreciated.

Benign neglect?
Garden pest control naturally
By Dean Fosdick
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Gardeners worried about the safety of synthetic pest-con-
trol products sometimes turn to botanically derived com-
pounds instead. But many of those also contain toxic ingre-
dients, such as nicotine, rotenone and pyrethrins.
“Botanically derived pesticides are not always safe and
some are more hazardous than synthetics,” said Linda
Chalker-Scott, an extension horticulturist at Washington
State University’s Puyallup Research Center. “Any improp-
erly used pesticide will contaminate nearby terrestrial and
aquatic systems.”
And don’t use home remedies, she said, which could be
“illegal and possibly fatal to many good things in your gar-
den.”
Instead, consider the benign-neglect school of pest-con-
trol — a mix of prevention (such as maintaining healthy
soil) and natural controls (such as insect-eating insects).
“I don’t add fertilizers. I don’t use pesticides. I use a wood
chip mulch, which provides habitat for beneficial insects
like predacious ground beetles that may eat slugs and slug
eggs,” Chalker-Scott said in an email.
Ninety-nine percent of the insects in our yards are benign
or even beneficial, writes Jessica Walliser in her new
“Attracting Beneficial Bugs to Your Garden: A Natural
Approach to Pest Control” (Timber Press). She recommends
introducing insects that eat other insects.
“Asingle ladybug — probably the most illustrious bene-
ficial predatory insect — can consume up to 5,000 aphids
during its lifetime,” Walliser says, adding that there are
thousands of other insect species capable of doing the same
thing.
To keep these predatory insects around, however, you
have to offer a diverse and pesticide-free garden with plenty
of plant-based foods.
“Just like people, most species of beneficial insects need
a balance of carbohydrates (found in nectar) and protein
(found in their prey) in order to survive,” Walliser said.
Provide plants that produce flowers with shallow, exposed
nectaries, she said. “Many beneficial insects are very small
and don’t have specialized mouthparts for accessing nectar
from tubular flowers. Members of the carrot family and the
aster family are great places to start.”
Where to find beneficial insects? Aside from luring wild
singles into your yard with the necessary food, water and
shelter, you can simply buy several hundred for release from
containers at garden centers or on the Internet.
“Be sure you have everything they need to survive, then
look at the types of pests you have in the garden,” Walliser
said. “If whiteflies are problematic on your tomatoes, then
larval lacewings may be your answer. If aphids are plaguing
your lettuce crop, ladybugs may be a better choice.”
Floral motifs — and roses in particular — were all the rage during the Victorian era. Art and textiles featured illustrated flora
and fauna from home and exotic parts of the world.

Research: At-home mothers on the rise
By Leanne Italie
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK — The rising cost of child care
is among likely reasons for a rise in the number
of women staying home full-time with their
children, according to a new Pew Research
Center report released Tuesday.
Other factors cited by Pew to explain the
increase include more immigrant mothers, who
tend to stay home with children in greater num-
bers than U.S.-born moms; more women
unable to find work; and ambivalence about the
impact of working mothers on young children.
The share of mothers who do not work out-
side the home rose to 29 percent in 2012, the
study found. That’s up from 23 percent at the
turn of the century, according to the report. At
the height of the recession in 2008, Pew esti-
mated 26 percent of mothers were home with
children.
The at-home moms include women who are
married, single, disabled, enrolled in school or
unable to find work.
Pew cited a 2010 U.S. census report that sin-
gled out the expense of child care as a factor. In
inflation-adjusted dollars, the average weekly
child care expense for families with working
mothers who paid for child care rose more than
70 percent, from $87 in 1985 to $148 in 2011,
according to government estimates. That repre-
sented 7.2 percent of the income for such fami-
lies.
Tricia Williamson, 30, in Liberty, N.C., quit
her job as an editor and producer at a TVstation
after crunching the numbers and realizing her
salary after the birth of her son a year ago
would go primarily to commuting and child
care expenses. Her husband earns about
$44,000 a year as an electronics technician.
“We’re not rich by any means. We live pay-
check to paycheck, but it’s completely worth
it,” she said. “My son wouldn’t be getting the
attention he needs one-on-one. He’s got mom
24-7.”
The largest share of at-home mothers —
rough-
ly two-thirds of 10.4 million —
had working husbands. Agrow-
ing share — 6 percent in
2012, up from 1 percent in
2000 — said they could not
find a job, according to Pew,
which relied on U.S. Census
and other government data.
No matter what their marital
status, mothers at home are
younger and less educated than
working counterparts, the report
said. Most married moms said
they were home specifically to
care for the kids, while single
mothers were more likely to say
they couldn’t find a job, were ill or
disabled, or were in school.
Among all at-home mothers in
2012, 51 percent had at least one child 5
or younger, compared with 41 percent of
working mothers.
The researchers said one of the most strik-
ing demographic differences between at-
home mothers and working mothers is their
economic well-being, with about 34 per-
cent of at-home mothers living in poverty,
compared with 12 percent of working
mothers.
Relatively few married at-home mothers
with working husbands qualify as “afflu-
ent,” at nearly 370,000 with at least a mas-
ter’s degree and a median family income of
over $75,000 a year in 2012. That number
amounts to 5 percent of married at-home
mothers with working husbands.
The “elite” marrieds stand out from other at-
home mothers as disproportionately white or
Asian. About 69 percent are white and 19 per-
cent are Asian. Only 7 percent are Hispanic and
3 percent are black.
Mothers more likely to stay home are

associated with gorgeous weather and week-
end shenanigans, many people shy away
from hunting for their vintage finds when
it’s cold or gloomy,” he notes, so go now
and go early.
“I usually show up just as the flea market
opens to ensure I see every new item as it’s
put out on display,” he says. “When you
wait until the end of a flea market’s run to
check out its stuff, you’re likely to find
mostly leftovers, things priced too highly
which others passed over, or things that are
just way too taste-specific for most people
to make offers on.”
TIME TRAVEL
Rummerfield occasionally finds signed
artwork and ceramics by noteworthy artists
at flea markets and antique malls.
“It is amazing to see what people cast
away,” she says. “I personally hunt for
Sasha Brastoff ceramics because of his
unique California heritage as a set deco-
rator and artist.” She has also found vin-
tage Billy Haines chairs and Gio Ponti
lighting at flea markets.
So read up on the designers and artists
from your favorite periods, and then hunt
for their work or impressive knockoffs.
A single flea market might offer goods
from every decade of the 20th century. Can
you put a lamp from the 1970s on a table
from 1950? Yes, if the shapes and colors
work well together, Kleinhelter says.
If your home has contemporary decor,
Rummerfield says it can be powerful to add
one statement piece — a side table, say, or a
light fixture — from a previous era.
But “a little bit goes a long way. Use vin-
tage in moderation with contemporary
spaces,” Rummerfield says. “It will high-
light the uniqueness of the vintage item.
You don’t necessarily want to live in a time
capsule.”
FIXER-UPPERS
You may assume that old upholstered fur-
niture should be avoided, especially if the
fabric looks dirty or damaged. But these
designers say it’s actually a great thing to
hunt for: “Hands down, upholstery is the
best deal to walk away with at flea markets.
Just make sure you train your eye to pay no
attention to the existing fabrics,” Flynn
says. “Zero in on the lines of the frames
instead.”
Kleinhelter agrees: “I usually gravitate
toward the bones and frames of vintage
pieces, and I make them my own by adding
fun fabric or lacquering the base.”
The same goes for lighting. Buy it if you
love it, but get the wiring updated by a pro-
fessional. Flynn usually estimates an extra
$50 to $75 per fixture for updating the
wiring, so keep that cost in mind as you bar-
gain.
MIX AND MATCH
Be on the lookout for pieces you can use
together. “You don’t need multiples of the
same chair or sofa to make a room work,”
Flynn says. “Stick with those which have
similar scale and proportion, then recover
them in the same fabric.”
Once you get home, use flea market finds
sparingly, Flynn says, mixing them in with
the pieces you already own: “A few big
pieces mixed with some smaller ones added
to your existing stuff can instantly take an
unfinished space and make it feel way more
finished and remarkably personal.”
MONEY ADVICE
“The best way to get an amazing deal is to
buy a bunch of different items from the same
vendor,” says Flynn. “This way, they can
actually lower their prices since you’re guar-
anteeing them more sales, which in turn
also makes their packing up and leaving
much easier. ”
You should bargain, but don’t go so low
that you’ll insult the seller. “If something is
marked $185, it’s probably not ideal to
offer $50,” Flynn says. One option is to
negotiate for a 25 percent to 35 percent dis-
count.
And do bring cash. “Mom and pop dealers
don’t have the luxury of taking credit cards
due to the charges acquired,” Flynn says. “If
you bring enough cash with you, you’re
more likely to be able to negotiate success-
fully. ”
PERSONAL TASTE
Above all, choose items that delight you.
“I never focus on eras or hunt for specific
designers,” Kleinhelter says. “Pick what
you like.”
And be open to serendipity.
“When I’m looking for furniture, I always
stumble across a good vintage jewelry or
clothing vendor and end up with a fun
bauble of a bracelet or necklace,”
Rummerfield says. “Prices are usually so rea-
sonable, you come away with a good
amount of loot. It is always a day well
spent.”
Most wild kittens taken
to shelters will be killed
LOS ANGELES — Wild kittens that will
number in the tens of millions this year are
starting to be born, and overtaxed shelters
will be forced to euthanize most of the mil-
lions they receive. It is a grim reality a lead-
ing advocate calls “one of the last major
problems” plaguing the animal welfare
movement.
Scads of good-intentioned people who
discover wild litters of baby cats will take
them to shelters, which are overrun with the
animals. The facilities turn to euthanasia
when their limited resources are stretched
even thinner by the massive influx of kit-
tens and the babies’ required round-the-
clock care. But groups that trap, neuter and
release feral cats and shelters that are able to
open 24-hour kitten nurseries are doing
their part to stem the deaths.
“The problem of community cats dying in
shelters is one of the last major problems
we in the animal welfare movement are tack-
ling,” said Gregory Castle, CEO of Best
Friends Animal Society, a leader in the no-
kill movement that runs the largest animal
sanctuary in the country.
He says “there’s a ways to go” but has
seen a dramatic drop in deaths whenever his
group connects a shelter with a local organ-
ization that traps, neuters and releases free-
roaming cats. Wild kittens socialized early
enough can be great pets, his group says.
Astaggering 40 million feral kittens will
be born throughout the country this year,
but 20 million of them will die at birth, said
Becky Robinson, president of Bethesda,
Md.-based Alley Cat Allies, which pro-
motes trap, neuter and release and is the
country’s only cat advocacy group.

U.S. For example, 40 percent of immi-
grant mothers were at home with their
children, compared with about a quarter
of U.S.-born mothers.
Among at-home mothers living in pover-
ty in 2012, 36 percent were immigrants, the
report said.
The report points to stagnant incomes for
all but the college-educated as a possible
factor for less-educated workers in particular
who might be weighing the cost of child
care against wages and deciding it makes
more economic sense to stay home.
While attitudes over the decades toward
working mothers have improved, “most
Americans continue to believe that it’s best
for children to have a parent at home,” said
D’Vera Cohn, a senior writer at Pew who
worked on the report.
Since 2008, about 70 percent said when
questioned in an ongoing social survey that
a working mother is just as capable as an at-
home mother of establishing the same
“warm and secure” relationship with her
children. But 60 percent of Americans in a
recent Pew survey said children are better off
when a parent stays home to “focus on the
family,” compared with 35 percent who said
children are “just as well off with working
parents.”

The study provides for a continuous
path, however not entirely on
Ralston Avenue; instead using a
detour by enhancing the current path
through Twin Pines Park, Spencer
said.
The goal of the study is “to create
better access and mobility for each
user that is safer from one end of
Ralston to the other,” Spencer said.
“But it is a balance and there are trade-
offs with each element of the plan.”
Ralston Avenue is diverse and well
traversed as it’s the only street in the
small town that goes from east to
west connecting Highway 101 to
State Route 92 and Interstate 280. The
thoroughfare frequently backs up dur-
ing peak traffic hours as it provides
access to downtown, multiple
schools, a few churches, senior hous-
ing complexes and parks.
Add irregular speeds, a steep
incline, sectioned bike lanes and nar-
row sidewalks and many commuters
say traversing Ralston Avenue is dan-
gerous.
Bicycles, and speed
Kevin Sullivan, an avid biker and a
former Parks and Recreation commis-
sioner, said he is thrilled people are
passionate about riding, but added
cooperation is what makes bicycling
safe.
“We all know Ralston is a very
challenging problem for many of us
throughout the day. It creates a lot of
emotions and challenges,” Sullivan
said. “Because of [the study’s] overall
plan, it helps all users, even if not
everybody gets everything they
want.”
But Mike Swire, a Belmont com-
muter who started an online petition
with 720 signatures, said the commu-
nity wants slower speed limits and
more attention on bicyclists and
pedestrians. Bike lanes throughout
Ralston Avenue are possible but
instead the current recommendations
force bikers on detours through nar-
row back roads, Swire said.
“I disagree that bike lanes will be
difficult. One, they could narrow lanes
to slow traffic and create space for
bike lanes and two, they could also
use the grass buffers that they’ve
designed for a bike lane or shoulder
instead. So options exist, but the
political willpower doesn’t,” Swire
said.
But some members who signed the
petition did so to express safety con-
cerns, not to support a continuous
bike path at the expense of a lane of
traffic, said Huan Phan, a Belmont
resident and bicyclist.
The study touches on bike, pedestri-
an and vehicle lanes; but commuter
and resident Valerie Dohrenwend
thinks the study overlooked a prime
solution to enhancing safety.
“Changing the speed limit to 35
mph on Ralston Avenue between
Alameda and Highway 92 would be a
simple and most importantly, cost-
effective way to encourage safety for
both pedestrians and bicyclists on
Ralston Avenue,” Dohrenwend said.
From 2010 to 2013, there was an
average of six collisions a month on
Ralston Avenue but, in 2013, that
number jumped to about 10 a month
and 37 percent of those are speed
related, Spencer said.
These statistics clearly justify low-
ering speed limits, Swire said.
“I think there’s a couple of key gaps
[in the study]. First and foremost, the
study does nothing to address the pri-
mary problem, which is excessive
speed. The study showed that the acci-
dent rate is two times the state aver-
age for similar roads. On Ralston, and
that speed is the number one cause of
those accidents and yet the study did
nothing to address the 45 plus mph
speeds we currently see on Ralston,”
Swire said.
More outreach
With increasing community inter-
est and the hefty price tag associated
with repairs, councilmen David
Braunstein and Charles Stone want to
see further community outreach prior
to taking action.
“Ralston impacts everyone in
Belmont, so what I would like to see
is to take the show on the road a little
bit and take it so some people that
haven’t provided feedback [can],”
Braunstein said.
Stone said he’s frustrated with accu-
sations that the council doesn’t care
about bicyclists and wants to give
others opportunities to weigh in.
“I’d like to see a little more out-
reach if we can, maybe one more com-
munity meeting. There’s folks who
are just becoming aware of this and
that’s unfortunate,” Stone said.
The study breaks Ralston Avenue
into four segments. The first is from
Highway 101 to El Camino Real, the
second from El Camino Real to South
Road, the third from South Road to
Alameda de las Pulgas and the fourth
spanning from Alameda de las Pulgas
to State Route 92. The costs for each
section differs with the South Road to
Alameda de las Pulgas portion esti-
mated at around $4.6 million to
implement all recommendations,
according to a city staff report.
With up to $8.5 million in repairs,
Mayor Warren Lieberman requested
the consultants to break down what
improvements the city could expect
based on various costs.
City staff continues to work on the
study and will hold another communi-
ty meeting in the next month or so,
said Public Works Director Afshin
Oskoui. It will also prioritize and
price improvements before returning
to the council. As it is a conceptual
study and will eventually function
like a master plan, actual construction
would go through a design process
involving more community outreach,
Oskoui said. The city will also need to
procure financing and grants before
breaking ground.
There are no future meetings or
hearings currently scheduled. For

Service has accepted a bid for the for-
mer post office property, at 220 Park
Road, which went up for sale in
August, said Deal. Grosvenor, an inter-
national property development,
investment and fund management
group, had expressed interest in the
property but was not that bidder, he
said.
“We’re just disappointed Grosvenor
didn’t get the high bid,” he said. “We
don’t know who it is at this point.
They have accepted a bid.”
There are offers on the old building,
but they’re all pending at this time,
said Debbie Brady, corporate commu-
nications for the U.S. Postal Service.
As for the Howard Avenue parcel, the
U.S. Postal Service is still in negotia-
tions with the property owner, she
said.
Deal added that the Howard Avenue
address is a “great location” for the
new post office.
City Manager Lisa Goldman said the
U.S. Postal Service was looking at
four sites for the relocation.
“We (city officials) haven’t really
taken a position one way or another, ”
she said. “We really wanted it to be in
downtown, so we’re really happy
they’re going to be there,”
Vice Mayor Terry Nagel said.
“We will all miss our beautiful, large
post office but understand the U.S.
Postal Service’s need to downsize and
save money,” she wrote in an email.

THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 2014
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Gather together with
friends who share your passion and vision. You can mix
business and pleasure while collaborating on a new
venture. Your final result could prove very lucrative.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Take a backseat and
relax for a change. Let others make decisions. Pick
your battles and don’t let a difference of opinion turn
into a major problem. Strive for equality.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Your home and work
environment will be filled with tension if you gossip or
get involved in other people’s business. Stick to your
chores and stay out of trouble.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — If you have ideas for
improvement at your workplace, speak up. Even if
your suggestions are not acted upon, you will gain
respect and credit for making the offer.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Your emotions are on a
rollercoaster ride, with you tearful one moment
and cheerful the next. Don’t let this instability
lead to an impulsive decision that can influence a
contract or promise.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t reveal
too many details about what you are up to. A
colleague may be trying to get ahead at your
expense. Someone who seems overly enthusiastic
could have an ulterior motive.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Keep an open mind
today. A casual remark from an old friend will give
new spark to your creativity. A trip to an unfamiliar
location will result in a rewarding partnership.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You don’t appreciate
being scrutinized, so don’t question what others are
up to. Be trusting. Your relationship with friends,
peers and partners will suffer if you display jealousy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Take a break
from your usual schedule. Get out into the fresh air
with friends or loved ones. A brief jaunt to a nearby
park or nature trail will get your juices flowing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — An elderly
relative may be a burden. Look over your
budget and see where you can make beneficial
adjustments. Contracts, investments or legal
matters should be dealt with now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — The time is right for
love. Take things slow and easy. You may be feeling
romantic, but don’t come on too strong, or your special
someone may take off in the other direction.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Don’t waste time
gossiping or sharing personal stories when you should
be working. You’ll be criticized if you don’t finish what
you start with efficiency and dispatch.

pounds of compost. About 22 percent went
to recycling, while the other 20.7 percent
went to landfil l .
“We were not too surprised,” said
Richard Hsu, Skyline’s sust ai nabi l i t y
coordinator. “We knew there was a large
amount of food waste.”
The school’s cafeteria does compost
unused food from the kitchen at the end of
the day, but there’s no composting in place
for food leftovers from consumed meals.
Meanwhile, Skyline English teacher
Katharine Harer is happy to see students
who took her composition class that
focused on climate change work to improve
the environment.
“They have a really positive attitude
about garbage,” she said. “Normally people
think it’s icky and don’t want to think about
it. They learned in my class as individuals in
the community there are things we can do to
make a difference.”
Also proud of her students was Carina
Anttila-Suarez, a professor in biology and
environment science at the college and also
advisor to the Environmental Club.
“They were very professional and enjoyed
teaching their peers,” she said. “It was a stu-
dent-led project that really took off.”
The Green Gorillas plan to make a presen-
tation to the district’s Board of Trustees
with its data to try to make composting per-
manent at Skyline. Before that, they plan to
contact school officials with the data. They
also want to offer their data to the two other
district community colleges, Cañada
College in Redwood City and the College of
San Mateo.

and electronic commerce.
Security researchers who uncovered the
threat are particularly worried about the
lapse because it went undetected for more
than two years. They fear the possibility
that computer hackers may have been
secretly exploiting the problem before its
discovery. It’s also possible that no one
took advantage of the flaw before its exis-
tence was announced late Monday.
Although there is now a way to close the
security hole, there are still plenty of rea-
sons to be concerned, said David Chartier,
CEO of Codenomicon. A small team from
the Finnish security firm diagnosed
Heartbleed while working independently
from another Google Inc. researcher who
also discovered the threat.
“I don’t think anyone that had been using
this technology is in a position to defini-
tively say they weren’t compromised,”
Chartier said.
Canada’s tax agency isn’t taking any
chances. Citing the security risks posed by
Heartbleed, the Canada Revenue Agency
shut off public access to its website “to safe-
guard the integrity of the information we
hold,” according to a notice posted on its
website Wednesday. The agency said it
hopes to re-open its website this weekend.
The lockdown comes just three weeks from
Canada’s April 30 deadline for filing 2013
tax returns.
The U.S. Internal Revenue Service said in
a statement Wednesday that it’s not affected
by the security hole. “The IRS advises tax-
payers to continue filing their tax returns as
they normally would in advance of the April
15 deadline,” the agency said.
TurboTax, the most popular tax prepara-
tion software, also issued a Wednesday
statement reassuring people that its website
is now protected against Heartbleed.
Computer security experts are still advis-
ing people to consider changing all their
online passwords.
“I would change every password every-
where because it’s possible something was
sniffed out,” said Wolfgang Kandek, chief
technology officer for Qualys, a maker of
security-analysis software. “You don’t
know because an attack wouldn’t have left a
distinct footprint.”
Google is so confident that it inoculated
itself against the Heartbleed bug before any
damage could be done that the Mountain
View, Calif., company is telling its users
they don’t have to change the passwords
they use to access Gmail, YouTube and other
product accounts. More than 425 million
Gmail accounts alone have been set up
worldwide.
Facebook, which has more than 1.2 bil-
lion accountholders, also believes its
online social network has purged the
Heartbleed threat. But the Menlo Park,
Calif., company encouraged “people to take
this opportunity to follow good practices
and set up a unique password for your
Facebook account that you don’t use on
other sites.”
Online short messaging service Twitter
Inc. and e-commerce giant Amazon.com
Inc. say their websites weren’t exposed to
Heartbleed. Ebay Inc., which runs the
PayPal payment service as well as online
shopping bazaars, says most of its services
avoided the bug.
Changing passwords on other online
services potentially affected by Heartbleed
won’t do much good, security experts said,
until the problem is patched. The trouble-
shooting software was released Monday.
So far, very few websites have acknowl-
edged being afflicted by Heartbleed,
although the bug is believed to be wide-
spread.
“This is going to be difficult for the aver-
age guy in the streets to understand, because
it’s hard to know who has done what and
what is safe,” Chartier said.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir
Putin turned up the heat on Ukraine on
Wednesday by threatening to demand
advance payment for gas supplies, a move
designed to exert economic pressure as
Ukraine confronts possible bankruptcy, a
mutiny by pro-Russian separatists in the
east and a Russian military buildup across
the border.
NATO’s top commander in Europe warned
that the alliance could respond to the
Russian military threat against Ukraine by
deploying U.S. troops to Eastern Europe,
but Putin’s latest tactics suggest he may be
aiming to secure Russia’s clout with its
neighbor without invading.
Speaking at a Cabinet session, the
Russian leader voiced hope that diplomatic
efforts to ease the Ukrainian crisis would
yield “positive results,” an apparent refer-
ence to talks set for next week that will
bring together the U.S., the European
Union, Russia and Ukraine for the first time.
Russia wants the talks to focus on a
roadmap for Ukraine that would include con-
stitutional reforms to turn it into a federa-
tion and guarantee its neutral status. Those
demands reflect the Kremlin’s hope of
retaining influence over its neighbor and
ensuring it does not join NATO.
Putin turns up economic heat before Ukraine talks
