An uplifting, yet
austere, budget
By Heather Murtagh
The governors proposal for streamlining
the funding system for education has the hope
of giving local control but the details leave
ofcials unsure of the possible impacts.
On Thursday, Gov. Jerry Brown released a
budget that includes $2.7 billion more for K-
12 education and community colleges, for a
total of $56.2 billion. The funding boost
comes from the recent statewide tax hikes.
School funding overhaul
key point in state budget
By Michelle Durand
While county officials are feeling posi-
tive about the proposed state budget
unveiled yesterday, the lack of relief for the
court system has those in that branch antic-
ipating the need for severe reductions in
hours, locations and staff.
The cuts were already in the pipeline and
have already led local court ofcials to warn
about possible courtroom closures and consol-
idations. Yesterdays budget document just
cemented the likelihood.
Courts say cuts jeopardize justice

A surplus?
With California cutting more than $40 bil-
lion from its budget these past two years, law-
makers welcomed a bal-
anced budget from Gov.
Jerry Brown yesterday, the
first balanced budget
many lawmakers in
Sacramento have ever
seen in their time there.
Even Republicans
praised Brown for reining
in spending but there are
still some key sticking
points such as the gover-
nors plan to shift educa-
tion funding to poorer
schools that have both
Democrats and the GOP
But the state now has an
anticipated $850 million
surplus due to voter-
approved tax increases in
November and massive
cuts to government pro-
Between now and May,
however, Browns budget
will likely be signicantly
changed from the $97.6
billion spending plan he
released yesterday as law-
makers negotiate the ner
points of the budget in the
coming months.
State lawmakers in the area, all Democrats,
praised Browns budget but said the state
needs to learn to save for a rainy day rather

SACRAMENTO Riding a wave of new tax revenue,
Californias spending plan for the coming scal year will rise by
nearly $5 billion, a powerful indication that the state that came to
symbolize scal mismanagement during the heart of the recession
is emerging into brighter days.
Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday proposed a $97.6 billion general
fund budget for the 2013-14 scal year that wipes out years of
decits and even includes a modest surplus.
The additional revenue hiked the spending plan by 5 percent over
the current year and helps the governor pour more money into pub-
lic schools and universities.
The states budget shortfall stood at $25
billion when Brown took ofce two years
California today is poised to achieve

Police: Clerks gun
beats thiefs cattle prod
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Authorities
say a Florida Panhandle man has been
arrested after he tried to rob a conven-

thwarted by a clerk with a gun.
The Leon County Sheriffs Ofce says
26-year-old Lance Tomberlin went into a
store just outside Tallahassee on January
2, produced the cattle prod and demand-
ed money from the clerk. Ofcials say he
shocked the clerk several times before the
clerk pulled a handgun.
Authorities say Tomberlin ed and
another employee tried to restrain him,
but he eventually escaped in his truck.
Deputies stopped Tomberlins truck but
he ed on foot.

arrested Tuesday and charged with armed
robbery and aggravated battery.

Sweden seeks two Britons
for smuggling garlic
STOCKHOLM Swedish prosecu-
tors have issued international arrest war-
rants for two Britons suspected of master-
minding a smuggling ring involving
Chinese garlic.
The men rst shipped the garlic to
Norway by boat, where it entered the
country duty-free since it was considered
to be in transit, prosecutor Thomas
Ahlstrand said Wednesday. They then
drove large shipments of garlic across the
Norwegian-Swedish border, avoiding
customs checks and thus Swedish import
Ahlstrand said the men avoided paying
some $13.1 million in Swedish taxes with
the scheme, which took place in 2009 and
2010. A lengthy police investigation led
to the identication of the two Britons.
Ahlstrand initially said they smuggled
in 1.2 tons of garlic, but later said the
exact amount was unclear.
It was not the rst time smugglers have
shown a preference for garlic from China,
which accounts for nearly 80 percent of
world output and is often signicantly
cheaper than local varieties.
In 2010, Polish authorities seized six
containers with 144 tons of Chinese gar-
lic that had been smuggled into the coun-
try via the Netherlands.
It was not immediately clear whether
the Polish smuggling was linked to the
Swedish case.
Bobcat that
attacked man had rabies
BROOKFIELD, Mass. The bobcat
that attacked a Massachusetts man and
his nephew had rabies.
The Telegram & Gazette reports that
state lab results on the dead animal were
announced at Tuesday nights select
board meeting in Brookeld.
Wildlife ofcials suspected that the
bobcat that attacked Roger Mundell Jr. on
Sunday was rabid because of its unusual-
ly aggressive behavior.
After pouncing on Mundell, sinking its
teeth into his face and its claws in his
back and holding him in what he
described as a bear hug, the animal went
outside and bit the 15-year-old boy.
Mundell shot and killed the bobcat.
He, his nephew and his wife -who was
not bitten but got the animals blood on
her have already started rabies treat-
Deputies: Wooden
statue was a bear to steal
PORTLAND, Ore. A bear that
weighs more than 200 pounds is missing,
and its not in hibernation.
The sheriffs office in Washington
County, Ore., says the wooden statue of a
bear was stolen from a home in Portland
during the weekend.
The homeowner bought the 5-foot-tall
statue in 1996 for $1,700 and had it dis-
played in the front yard for many years.
Sheriffs Sgt. Bob Ray says the theft
occurred in the overnight hours, and it
would have taken at least two people to
carry away the bear.
Investigators are condent the public
will help them quickly solve the crime.
Authorities have yet to receive any tips,
but Ray says you cant hide that bear.

An organization that got its start in San
Mateo 55 years ago is still going strong as
the Sons in Retirement continue to seek out
ways to enjoy life in the later years.
The group has about 180 branches in
Central and Northern California now and
Branch 1 in San Mateo is one of its strongest
with about 200 members.
They enjoy bowling, fishing, golf, tennis,
bicycling and other activities and the aver-
age age of Branch 1 members is about 83
years old.
Branch 1 just named Alex Kimmel its new
publicity director with hopes of attracting
new members to the group.
The goal of the group is to have fun and
branch leaders are given the title Big SIR.
Branch 1 Big SIR Tom Keefer is looking
to attract new members and keep them, espe-
cially with the advanced age of many of its
Sons In Retirement is a nonprofit group
for the retired, regardless of age, that assists
men in renewing old friendships and making
new friends through various activities.
Wednesday, Branch 1 held its monthly
luncheon at the Elks Lodge in San Mateo
with special guest speaker Larry Souza, a
former football coach at North Monterey
County High School and Hartnell College.
Souzas speech was titled Football is Not
a Matter of Life and Death, timed with the
San Francisco 49ers hosting the Green Bay
Packers in the NFL playoffs this Saturday.
Its much more important than that,
Souza said about life, death and football.
Some of the greatest moments as a
coach were when his teams actually lost
to stronger and faster teams because his
teams stood up and battled, said Souza,
who once appeared on the Today Show
because his team had not scored a touch-
down in two years.
After his speech, Souza then answered
questions from Branch 1 members about
concussions, steroids, tackling and the vast
changes of the game over the decades.
Then he was asked to make a prediction
about the playoff game in San Francisco
Go Niners, Souza shouted before
revealing he actually owns stock in the
Packers. My wife bought it for me.
SIR membership is open to men retired
from full-time occupation, regardless of
age, race, color or religion and charges no
dues, fees or assessments.
SIR supports no outside cause or interest
and prohibits discussions of politics and
religion or the selling of anything to any
member, according to its bylaws.
The only requirements to join SIR are that
a man be retired, or semi-retired, be able to
attend the monthly luncheons and be spon-
sored by an active member.
SIRs logo is the rooster, chosen by origi-
nal founders to represent the freedom it dis-
plays around the barnyard.
We have paid our dues to the business
world and now is the time for us to strut and
crow a little, is one of the groups mottos.
SIR was conceived by the late Damian
Reynolds in 1958 who then recruited Claus
Hink, Lorenz Hansen and Wallace Plummer
who held its first luncheon in San Mateo.

She leaves to cherish her memory:
sisters Emma (Harry) Saito and
Ayano Ariyoshi; children Elaine

(Cheryl) and Jeffrey (Cathy)
Shinozaki; 10 grandchildren and
many relatives.

Thieves steal Nativity scene
Painted plastic gurines of 30-
inch Joseph, the Virgin Mary, baby

value is estimated at approximately
$1,600, according to the Sheriffs

NEW YORK From the Rocky
Mountains to New England, hospi-
tals are swamped with people with
u symptoms. Some medical cen-
ters are turning away visitors or
making them wear face masks, and
one Pennsylvania hospital set up a
tent outside its ER to deal with the
feverish patients.
Flu season in the U.S. has struck
early and, in many places, hard.
While u normally doesnt blan-
ket the country until late January or
February, it is already widespread in
more than 40 states, with about 30
of them reporting some major hot
spots. On Thursday, health ofcials
blamed the u for the deaths of 20
children so far.
Whether this will be considered a
bad season by the time it has run its
course in the spring remains to be
Those of us with gray hair have
seen worse, said Dr. William
Schaffner, a u expert at Vanderbilt
University in Nashville.
The evidence so far points to a
moderate season, Schaffner and
others say. It looks bad in part
because last year was unusually
mild and because the main strain
of influenza circulating this year
tends to make people sicker and
really lay them low.
David Smythe of New York City
saw it happen to his 50-year-old
girlfriend, who has been knocked
out for about two weeks. Shes
been in bed. She cant even get up,
he said.
Flu season strikes early and hard

A judge sided with neighbors who
were upset about the removal of
about 200 trees from the College of
San Mateo, a loss of the natural bar-
rier from noise, trafc and buildings.
In January 2011, 201 large trees
were removed from the ridgeline of
the College of San Mateo campus.
Neighbors in Hillsborough, joined
together under the moniker Citizens
For a Green San Mateo, followed
with conversations with the San
Mateo County Community College
District in hopes of mitigating the
impacts. They then led a lawsuit
last summer claiming that the dis-
trict failed to conduct an environ-
mental review before removing the
trees, installing new lights in the
parking lots and reconguring the
roads. Each act, the lawsuit added,
affected the adjacent Hillsborough
neighborhood by increasing light
and noise pollution as well as
exposing college buildings previ-
ously not visible.
Last month, a judge agreed with

TAFT A 16-year-old student
armed with a shotgun walked into a
rural California high school on
Thursday, shot one student and red
at others and missed before a teacher
and another staff member talked him
into surrendering, ofcials said.
The teen victim was in critical but
stable condition, and the suspect,
whose pockets were stuffed with
ammunition, was still being interro-
gated, Kern County Sheriff Donny
Youngblood said at a news confer-
ence Thursday evening.
The suspect used a shotgun that
belonged to his brother and went to
bed Wednesday night with a plan to
shoot two fellow students,
Youngblood said.
Surveillance video shows the
alleged shooter trying to conceal the
gun as he nervously entered Taft
Union High School through a side
entrance after school had started
Thursday morning.
When the shots were red, teacher
Ryan Heber tried to get the more
than two dozen students out a back
door and engaged the shooter in con-
versation to distract him,
Youngblood said.

The remaining tenants at Petes Harbor
have only a few days before eviction day but
they are not going down without a ght.
There are no pitchforks but we are saying
were going to stay, said Alison Madden, the
groups representative who is also battling the
eviction in San Mateo County Superior Court.
A judge earlier this week denied a tempo-
rary restraining order request by the live-
aboard tenants at the Redwood City marina
but the group is now arguing in court that the
owner doesnt have the right to evict them
Jan. 15 because she doesnt have permission
from the state commission from which she
leases the land.
The request for an injunction filed
Wednesday by Madden states that Petes
Harbor owner Paul Uccelli can terminate the
leases and sell the upper portion of the prop-
erty for development. In fact, the request
states, we wish her well. But, it also states
Uccelli does not have the right to evict the
boaters because she does not have approval
from the California State Lands Commission
to transfer the lease agreement to developer
Pauls Corp. which plans a 411-unit waterfront
housing development.
Uccellis representatives, however, main-
tain that she has paid the state hundreds of
thousands of dollars for 28 years of back rent
and interest but did so under protest because
the amount demanded is unreasonable. Paula
Uccelli was informed in December that she
owed $409,253.24 which left her shocked
because she and her late husband, Pete, had
been unsuccessfully trying to pay the state for
28 years, according to her spokesman Adam
Alberti and her attorney Ted Hannig.
Now, years later, it is wrong and disingen-
uous for the State Lands Commission to sud-
denly speak up and bully Paula, a 70-year-old
widow, into paying far beyond her legal obli-
gation by threatening to terminate her lease
or else, Hannig said in a prepared state-
But Madden said the dispute with the state
goes beyond rent. She argues the land is
required to be operated as a commercial mari-
na and harbor.
We were making these arguments before
we even found out about the nonpayment,
Madden said.
The rent tug-of-war follows a lengthy legal
ght for ownership between Uccelli and the
state which ended in 1984 when the
Legislature deeded the property to Uccelli
aside from the outer waterway which was
placed on the long-term lease. Because the
state never identied where to pay the rent,
the Uccellis deposited the funds in an account
but in September 2012 was told by the state it
still did not know the amount owed, accord-
ing to Hannig.
The ongoing battle between Uccelli and the
commission is now in the limelight as she
tries converting the 60-year-old marina into
housing and the current residents ght to
remain. The Planning Commission approved
the necessary permits last year but the tenants
appealed the decision to the City Council.
The matter will be heard later this month.
The few remaining tenants also sought a
temporary restraining order from eviction but
Judge George Miram rejected the request.
Madden said they may try again.
Since June 2002, Uccelli has required all
live-aboard leases to include language
acknowledging the possibility of relocation.
All leases the past 12 years have also been
month-to-month because of the sale potential.
Not every lease has this clause and others
are unsigned, according to the court ling.
The ling also states that tenants were not
given adequate heads up of the eviction and
development plan in part because the July
notices were included in rent envelopes.
Some boats pay their rent in person at the har-
bor ofce and do not always open the rent
mailing and there were no other notices post-
ed on the property. As a result, the tenants
were misled and not given the summer
months to ready or move their boats, the ling
At least six tenants physically cannot move
their boats by the eviction date without
spending thousands of dollars on towing,
Madden said. She estimates there are about
20 boats remaining with about 30 residents
still there.
Madden said she and a few others are also
claiming fraud on Uccellis part because they
were allowed to join the community recently
even though plans for development and evic-
tion were already in the works.

WASHINGTON Despite fresh opposition
from the National Rifle Association, the
Obama administration is assembling proposals
to curb gun violence that would include a ban
on sales of assault weapons, limits on high-
capacity ammunition magazines and universal
background checks for gun buyers.
Sketching out details of the plan Thursday,
Vice President Joe Biden said he would give
President Barack Obama a set of recommenda-
tions by next Tuesday. The NRA, one of the
pro-gun groups that met with Biden during the
day, rejected the effort to limit ammunition and
dug in on its opposition to an assault weapons
ban, which Obama has previously said he will
propose to Congress.
The vice president made it clear, made it
explicitly clear, that the president had already
made up his mind on those issues, NRA pres-
ident David Keene said following the meeting.
We made it clear that we
disagree with them.
Opposition from the
well-funded and politically
powerful NRA underscores
the challenges that await
the White House if it seeks
congressional approval for
limiting guns and ammuni-
tion and greatly expanding
background checks.
Obama can use his execu-
tive powers to act alone on some gun meas-
ures, but his options on the proposals opposed
by the NRA are limited without Congress
Obama has pushed reducing gun violence to
the top of his domestic agenda following last
months massacre of 20 children and six adults
at a Connecticut elementary school. The presi-
dent put Biden in charge of an administration-
wide task force and set a late January deadline

WASHINGTON The Pentagon will
begin taking steps to freeze civilian hir-
ing, delay some contract awards and cur-
tail some maintenance to prepare for
drastic budget cuts if Congress cant
reach an agreement on a nal spending
plan, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta
said Thursday.
Speaking to reporters, Panetta said
that department officials must also
develop detailed plans to implement
unpaid furloughs for civilian personnel.
The furloughs would kick in if the auto-
matic cuts are triggered.
But Panetta said he has asked defense
leaders to ensure that any initial moves
they make now should be reversible if at
all possible, and they must minimize
harmful effects on military readiness.
The simple fact is that this scal
uncertainty has become a serious threat
to our national security, Panetta said
during a Pentagon press conference.
We really have no choice but to prepare
for the worst.
The Pentagon is facing a spending
reduction of nearly $500 billion over a
decade. An additional $110 billion in
automatic spending cuts to military and
domestic programs will take effect in
early March if no agreement is reached.
At the same time, Panetta and Gen.
Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, noted that Congress has
not passed the 2013 defense department
budget proposed by the Pentagon last
year, and has instead just approved
spending equal to the 2012 scal year

Bombings kill 115
people in Pakistan
By Abdul Sattar and Sebastian Abbot
QUETTA, Pakistan A series of bombings killed 115 peo-
ple across Pakistan on Thursday, including 81 who died in
twin blasts on a bustling billiards hall in a Shiite area of the
southwestern city of Quetta.
Pakistans minority Shiite Muslims have increasingly been
targeted by radical Sunnis who consider them heretics, and a
militant Sunni group claimed responsibility for Thursdays
deadliest attack sending a suicide bomber into the packed
pool hall and then detonating a car bomb ve minutes later.
It was one of the deadliest days in recent years for a country
that is no stranger to violence from radical Islamists, militant
separatists and criminal gangs.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon strongly condemned
Thursdays multiple attacks and the ongoing terrorist violence
in Pakistan, saying these heinous acts cannot be justied by
any cause and calling for the perpetrators to be brought to jus-
tice, U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said.
Violence has been especially intense in southwest
Baluchistan province, where Quetta is the capital and the
countrys largest concentration of Shiites live. Many are ethnic
Hazara who migrated from neighboring Afghanistan.
The billiards hall targeted Thursday was located in an area
dominated by the minority sect. In addition to the 81 dead,
more than 120 people were wounded in the double bombing,
said police ofcer Zubair Mehmood.

WASHINGTON In a notably
upbeat assessment of war progress,
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said
Thursday that the U.S.-led coalition has
advanced to the last chapter of an 11-
year struggle to ensure that Afghanistan
can defend itself.
The endgame to which Panetta
referred is punctuated with uncertainty,
beginning with doubts about whether
the Afghan government can build legit-
imacy by credibly serving its popula-
tion. Also in question is whether
Afghan security forces will be capable
of holding off the Taliban after interna-
tional forces leave in 2014.
Panetta, who intends to quit his post
within weeks, held an hourlong, one-
on-one meeting at the Pentagon with
Afghan President Hamid Karzai. The
Pentagon chief said afterward that they
had made very good progress on key
issues, including the basis for an agree-
ment on continued U.S. assistance after
the combat mission ends.
Panetta also predicted that his desig-
nated successor, former Republican
Sen. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, will be
conrmed by the Senate, despite ques-
tions raised by many about his views on
Israel and Iran.

early, jail funding cut
The early release of some criminals from

Supervisor Horsley
Both Michael Stogners letter,
Recall Supervisor Horsley? in the
Jan. 9 edition of the Daily Journal and
your editorial, Campaign commit-
ments should be followed, of the same
day, make a very good point.
Unfortunately, Supervisor Horsley is
not alone in using false promises to get
elected or re-elected. If has been
used by politicians for generations to
get elected or to appear to subscribe to
higher moral values than their peers.
Our current president refused corpo-
rate donations for his rst inauguration.
Both public and press were very
impressed at the time if you remember
all the coverage he got.
As of this month there are more than
400 inaugural benefactors that have
contributed to his second inauguration
and the list will grow, I am sure.
Some of those donors are corpora-
tions. One, Microsoft, recently won a
$617 million contract with the
Pentagon. Donor AT&T won a $4.6
million contract in the current scal
year. Another donor, Centene Corp.,
manages health insurance programs for
some states and also for Medicaid.
These programs are expected to expand
dramatically under Obamacare.
While inaugurations are not speci-
cally included, a U.S. law bars federal
contractors from spending money to
inuence presidential and congression-
al elections.
Not a pretty picture for sure, but now
that my esteemed San Mateo County
fellow voters have xed the nancial
woes of the county by approving high-
er sales taxes, we can safely go back to
our old ways: Spend, spend, spend, we
can always ask for more tax money.
If we somehow manage to include
the words education or dire conse-
quences in the text of the voter pam-
phlets, the voters will approve.

Horsleys bad decision
Don Horsleys decision to break his
campaign promise to forgo his salary as
county supervisor is a bad decision
(Jan. 9 editorial Campaign commit-
ments should be followed). As a resi-
dent of his district and someone who
voted for him in 2010, I feel duped by
his change of direction. It makes me
question his character and whether he
has the qualities to fulll a role that
oversees an approximately $1.8 billion
A key responsibility of a county
supervisor is to effectively plan for
future events. I realize that illnesses are
not predictable but I would have
expected that Horsley would have
planned for this event to possibly occur.
I feel that his personal planning habits
are questionable and Im concerned
that his planning approach carries over
to his role as county supervisor. Were
still living in a fragile economy (with
or without Measure A) and we need
elected ofcials who are skilled in
planning to improve the lives of its
constituents. Weve got too much to
Im tired of politicians saying one
thing and doing another. Especially
when theyre running for ofce. I
believe that this sentiment is wide-
spread and it makes citizens disen-
chanted with the political process.
Horsley should reconsider his decision
to take a salary and work with the
$200,000 a year pension and generous
benets that he currently receives.
Otherwise, Horsley could see his salary
permanently disappear by not being re-
elected for a second term.

Letters to the editor
here is much to cheer in Gov.
Jerry Browns budget
announcement yesterday.
However, it is not merely that the state
is on the road to recovery, thanks, in
part, to voters agreeing to a tax increase
in November. Rather, it is that it pres-
ents a realistic budget framework and
outlines the need for a rainy day fund
to eliminate the states boom-and-bust
budget cycles while establishing a
framework for changes to our educa-
tional system.
Brown has long been known for his
frugality and this austere $97.6 billion
general fund budget is rising by a mere
$5 billion even with new tax revenue
and a rebounding economy. Browns
budget includes a $1 billion rainy day
fund which this newspaper has long
called for to avoid the arduous task of
making painful cuts to programs that
expand when revenue is higher.
The budget also outlines a new fund-
ing formula for schools that would pro-
vide more money for low-income dis-
tricts and provide for more local control
of state education funding. While that
proposal is in its nascent stages, along
with the budget overall, that formula
does retain the denition of basic aid
districts. Those districts property taxes
equal or exceed the amount that the
state allocates to other districts known
as revenue limit. The budget proposal
clearly states that basic aid districts
would continue to retain local property
taxes in excess of the new formula allo-
cation. Thats good news for San Mateo
County, which has a high number of
such districts. Though there are large
pockets of wealth in this county, there
are also pockets of need. To character-
ize an area as wealthy because of cer-
tain pockets would do more harm than
good when it comes to meeting the
needs of those who deserve extra help.
Only a few districts in this county
would benet from the new funding
formulas premise of allocating more
money based on the proportion of
English learners, foster children and
low-income students. The formula
states that districts with more than half
of their student population classied as
low-income, measured by free or
reduced price lunch participants, would
receive additional funds in a poverty
concentration grant. This is a formula
that benets other areas of the state,
however, any local educator will tell
you there is a denitive need for assis-
tance for such groups here. While the
formula is not geared to provide addi-
tional assistance in this area, the outline
shows that it will not take from districts
from this area to provide that assistance
elsewhere. As this sketch becomes a
more complete picture, we trust our
local legislators will keep a keen eye on
the process to ensure we are not tapped
for additional funds. If we are, it only
means a lower bar for us, possible cuts
and an increased pull for more local
parcel taxes. However, the elimination
of categorical programs will give local
school districts more exibility
which is always a benet since many
district ofcials commit large amounts
of time and energy to keep up with
state mandates that often dont work
best in a local environment.
Another piece to keep an eye on is
the idea of shifting responsibility for
adult education from high school dis-
tricts to community colleges which
has the potential to upheave established
programs in key parts of our communi-
In total, the governors budget is a
solid step in that it is frugal and pro-
vides some framework for some much-

mericans might be wondering if they are stuck
in a Looney Toons cartoon. We technically went
over the fiscal cliff at the start of 2013, but just
like Daffy or the Road Runner, weve yet to begin our
descent. We are in that part of the cartoon where the vic-
tim hovers in midair, quizzically looking around and

Our concern is that the so-called fiscal cliff we appear
to have avoided is but one in a series of challenges. In
other words, Americans may have crawled in midair back
to safe ground, a la Daffy Duck, but theres an ACME
safe headed straight for our collective heads.
Its expected by March that Washington will commence
a fresh set of brinksmanship. This time the argument will
be over raising the debt ceiling. Republicans have sig-
naled they will not raise the debt ceiling unless they
extract massive spending cuts from the Obama adminis-
tration. Not this time, comes the response from the White
House. Playing around with the nation defaulting on its
debt isnt something Obama is apparently willing to dis-
These are proxy fights over a bigger ideological strug-

even more important question is who will feel the most
pain from the shrinking?
Democrats have voiced support for a stronger and
smarter government. Its actions have often not matched
its rhetoric.
The Republican side says it is dedicated to drastically
shrinking government. ... A closer inspection finds the
cutting is highly specific for the GOP. Cuts to the
Defense Department are generally off the table. Despite

After all, stranger things have happened ... consider
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Amish Mafia and My
Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, to name a very few.
The former senator from Delaware has been well known
for his quirky remarks and bright, ready smile throughout
his tenure in Washington, but it was his comments caught
on camera during the swearing in of the 113th Congress
that caught the attention of Internet surfers. While wel-
coming the senators and their families, Biden exchanged
jokes and off-beat remarks with them as they posed for
photos, saying such things as If you ever need any help
on your pecs, let me know, and Youve got beautiful
eyes, mom, to one senators mother. He has also appeared
on the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, and was once
caught by a live mic telling Obama before an official
address that passage of health care reform was a big
(expletive) deal. He also singlehandedly made malarkey
one of the most looked-up words of 2012 by using it in a
vice presidential debate.
Evidently, enough people think the veep is such a hoot
that they created the petition urging the Obama administra-
tion to allow cameras into the daily activities of Biden,
thus creating a one-of-a-kind reality show for the network
which, lets face it, could use a little levity.

December 2007, when the U.S. economy
was entering the Great Recession. It also

is now 93 points off its record close of

Mario Draghi said the struggling euro

year, but he warned that the region has
yet to reach a turning point in its struggle
with recession and handling its govern-
ment debt load. The comments bolstered
expectations that the worst of the
regions crisis may be behind it.
Investors were also cheered by a report
that showed China may gradually be
emerging from its worst economic down-
turn since the 2008 global crisis. Export

Stocks nished the day higher despite
a U.S. government report that weekly

previous weeks total was revised lower.
Ford was among the gainers, rising 36

U.S. companies are sitting on record
cash piles, having rebuilt their balance
sheets following the nancial crisis that
started five years ago. Analysts at
Deutsche Bank predict that corporations
will stop adding to those cash piles this
year and instead start returning more
cash to shareholders, helping push the
S&P 500 up to 1,575 by the end of the
year. That would be a 10 percent increase
from where it ended 2012.
Traders are also waiting for more indi-
cations on the health of U.S. companies
from earnings reports.
A good start this week to the earning
reports for the fourth quarter of last year

minum company Alcoa predicted rising

Quincy Krosby, a market strategist at

The S&P 500 is already up 3.2 percent
so far this year after lawmakers reached a
last-minute compromise to stop the U.S.
from going over the scal cliff, a refer-
ence to sharp tax increases and across-
the-board government spending cuts that
could have pushed the economy back
into recession.
Yet while the budget deal avoided
many of the tax increases, it only put off
the so-called sequestration, or spending
cuts, that were part of the scal cliff
Ben Schwarz, chief market strategist at
Light Speed Financial, said stocks are
unlikely to make substantial gains until
lawmakers deal comprehensively with
the government spending issue.
Stocks gain, S&P 500 at five-year high
By Christina Rexrode
NEW YORK Legal troubles and
regulatory scuffles keep piling up for
the banking industry, a fact thats sure
to drag down results when the banks
start reporting fourth-quarter earnings
beginning Friday.
Most obvious will be the pall cast by
this weeks national settlement over
foreclosure abuse. Bank of America,
Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Wells
Fargo and six other banks have agreed
to pay a combined $8.5 billion to settle
the governments accusations that they
wrongfully foreclosed on millions of
struggling homeowners.
The banks have already said the set-
tlement will crimp their fourth-quarter
results. Bank of America expects a hit
of $2.5 billion more than it made in
the fourth quarter of 2011, when it
earned about $1.6 billion.
Longer term, the settlement is the lat-
est reminder that a legacy of risky mort-
gage lending, which helped set off the
2008 global financial crisis, is still
exacting consequences in the form of
quarterly charges, lawsuits and regula-
tory fines. The financial crisis may no
longer be a sharp pain, but its aftermath
is a nagging ache.
The foreclosure mess is hardly the
only legal or regulatory maelstrom
banks are dealing with. In the fourth
quarter, the government separately sued
Wells Fargo, JPMorgan and Bank of
America, among others, over mort-
gages they or companies they later
bought made in the years before the cri-
sis. The banks have disputed the allega-
Also, Citigroup had to dismiss a
high-profile analyst after regulators
accused him of breaking disclosure
rules about a company he was covering.
A British bank, HSBC, settled Justice
Department accusations that lax over-
sight allowed money launderers to shift
funds around with impunity.
Some investors are wondering if U.S.
banks could become ensnared in a scan-
dal over the manipulation of a key inter-
est rate. Over the summer the British
bank Barclays was fined $453 million
by U.S. and British regulators for trying
to manipulate the rate, which is known
as Libor, or the London Interbank
Offered Rate.
Both Citigroup and JPMorgan have
said in regulatory filings that financial
regulators and state attorneys general
had asked them for information related
to their role in setting the interest rate,
which is a global benchmark for many
kinds of loans and short-term borrow-
ing. They and Bank of America, along
with other banks, are the subject of
Libor-related lawsuits filed by pension
funds and other investors.
Banks are already operating in a chal-
lenging business environment. Low
interest rates are crimping what the
banks can earn when they make loans.
Increased regulation has cut into some
of their former sources of profit, like
trading for their own account. Feeble
economic growth has made many small
businesses and individuals nervous
about borrowing money.
And even though 2012 was a good
year for bank stocks, that was in large
part because 2011 was so bad.
Financials were the best performing
stocks in the Standard & Poors 500
index in 2012. In 2011, they were the
To be sure, analysts predict that earn-
ings at most of the big banks could
increase for the fourth quarter. Much of
that could come not from higher rev-
enue or lending but from cutting jobs
and other expenses, and from trimming
reserves they hold for loans that might
go bad.
Banks prepare for earnings
SAN RAMON Chevron Corp.
expects fourth-quarter earnings to be
notably higher than third-quarter prof-
The company said Thursday that its
fourth-quarter results will be helped by
bigger gains on asset sales and more oil
and gas production.
Chevron is the nations second-biggest
oil company, and it earned $5.25 billion,
or $2.69 per share, in the third quarter.
Analysts expect the company to report
earnings of $3.03 per share when it posts
fourth-quarter results on Feb. 1.
The San Ramon company reported a
$1.4 billion gain from the 2012 swap
with Royal Dutch Shell of stakes in nat-
ural gas elds off the coast of Australia.
U.S. oil and gas production rose
39,000 barrels per day during the rst
two months of the quarter on recovery
from Hurricane Isaac and acquisitions
that Chevron made in the Permian Basin
of Texas.
International production rose even
more, up 107,000 barrels per day in the
rst two months of the quarter, due to
the lack of planned maintenance in
Kazakhstan and the United Kingdom,
Chevron said.
Chevron got an average of $97.61 per
barrel for U.S. oil during the rst two
months, up 27 cents per barrel from the
third quarter but below the $105.37 it
received in the fourth quarter of 2011. It
realized $3.14 per thousand cubic feet of
U.S. natural gas, up 51 cents from the
third quarter but down from $3.62 in
2011s fourth quarter.
International prices were mixed in the
rst two months of the fourth quarter, as
Chevron got more for gas but slightly
less for oil than a year earlier.
Rening margins decreased signi-
cantly both in the U.S. and overseas
compared with the third quarter,
Chevron said.
The company said oil for rening in
the U.S. declined from the third quarter
mostly due to the continued shutdown of
a crude oil unit in Richmond, Calif. The
company has said it expects the unit to
be working early this year.
Before Thursdays update, shares of
Chevron rose 93 cents in regular trading
to close at $110.47. In extended trading,

NEW YORK At least gasoline should cost you less in
Hamburger, health care and taxes are all set to take a big-
ger bite out of the family budget this year. But drivers annu-
al gas bills are expected to drop for the rst time in four
Forecasters say ample oil supplies and weak U.S. demand
will keep a lid on prices. The lows will be lower and the
highs wont be so high compared with a year ago. The aver-
age price of a gallon of gasoline will fall 5 percent to $3.44,
according to the Energy Department.
Everything is lining up to lead to softer prices this year,
said Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at the Oil Price
Information Service.
That would still be the third-highest average price ever.
But a discount of 19 cents per gallon from 2012 would save
the typical household $205 this year and free up $25 billion
that could go instead to restaurants, malls or movie theaters
the kind of consumer spending that accounts for 70 per-
cent of American economic activity.
Its a little benet to the economy, and its a little more
reason the Fed doesnt have to worry about ination, said
James Hamilton, an economist at the University of
California at San Diego who studies energy prices.
Forecasters caution that they cant predict other factors
like Middle East tensions, renery problems or hurricanes
along the U.S. Gulf Coast in other words, the same
events that caused gasoline prices to spike in 2011 and
2012. Any or all of those troubles could crop up again in
2013 and push pump prices above last years record average
of $3.63 a gallon.
Lawmakers release
documents on Wal-Mart bribery
NEW YORK Wal-Mart Stores Inc.s CEO Mike Duke
found out in 2005 that the retailers Mexico unit was hand-
ing out bribes to local ofcials, according to emails obtained
by lawmakers.
The lawmakers say the emails contradict earlier claims by
Wal-Mart that executives werent aware of bribes being
made by the company.
Democratic Congressmen Elijah E. Cummings and Henry
A. Waxman, who are investigating bribery charges at Wal-
Marts Mexico division, on Thursday released emails that
indicate that Duke and other senior Wal-Mart ofcials were
informed multiple times starting in 2005 about bribes being
made in the country. U.S. law forbids American companies
from bribing foreign ofcials.
The lawmakers shared the emails, which they say they got
from a condential source, with Wal-Mart on Wednesday,
and sent a letter to Duke asking for a meeting to discuss
It would be a serious matter if the CEO of one of our
nations largest companies failed to address allegations of a
bribery scheme, according to the letter written by Waxman
and Cummings to Duke.

Prior to Thursdays basketball game
between Serra and Bellarmine, Father Joseph
Bradley christened the newly dedicated
Morton Family Gymnasium with a little holy
But it was Serras Jacqui Biggins who made
it ofcial come the second half by making it
rain from the outside.
Biggins scored 14 of his 18 points in the
second half, knocking down four 3-pointers in
that stretch, to lead the Padres to a 71-50 win
over the Bells.
The win was the third in succession for
Serra in West Catholic Athletic League play
and the first in the Morton Family
Gymnasium named after former Padre and
current freshman basketball coach Brian
Up only six at the half, the Padres outscored
the Bells 39-24 in the second half, holding
Bellarmine to just eight points in the fourth
We knew they were going to come out hard
in the rst three minutes of the fourth quarter,
Biggins said. So we had to match that inten-
sity and go above it. Our offense comes from
our defense and thats what we did in the sec-
ond half.
The extended defense started to disrupt
what they were trying to do and created some
easy offense for us, said Serra head coach
Chuck Rapp of the key sequence in the third
quarter when the Padres pulled away. We just
kind of rolled from there.
Fouls kept the score tight in the games
early. Tied at 9-9, Serra used a 7-1 run to build
a 16-10 lead and a Henry Caruso 3-pointer to
begin the second quarter gave Serra a 19-12
lead. That advantage was extended all the way
to nine with 5:48 left in the quarter.

are just as good as they were last year as they

Half Moon Bay coach Tom Baker. Were

ready to wrestle, Matteucci said. Too many
(of my) guys missed practice over the break
so were out of shape.
It appeared Half Moon Bay (1-0 PAL Bay)
was on its way to a dominating victory, win-
ning the rst four matches. Tristan Keller won
the rst match of the night by forfeit at 106
pounds and Evan Marschall followed with an
11-4 win at 113. Spencer Boling, ranked No.
6 in the Central Coast Section at 120, had his

The number looming over the Menlo-
Atherton girls soccer team going into the
2012-2013 is a big, whopping 86 thats the
number of points tallied last year by the now-
graduated Jennifer Kirst and Meryssa
Thompson. Its the number the Bears have to
try and replace if they want to be competitive
in the always tough Peninsula Athletic League
Bay Division.
And on a chilly afternoon against Hillsdale
High School, and on the road no less, the
Bears took a big step in that direction, putting
together a dominating 4-0 performance to beat
the Knights.
Weve been on a scoring drought so its
nice to see, said M-A head coach Paul Snow,
who saw his team lose to Burlingame 2-0 in
the Bay opener on Tuesday. Weve been on
the short end of everything prior to (today) so
it was good to break out of our funk and get
those goals and three points because its a big
battle (in the division). Three points for us is
very needed.
The season continues to be a rough one for
the newly-ascended Knights, the reigning
PAL Ocean Division champions, who on
Thursday were without their biggest offensive
weapon in Kayla Coleman.
Shes a big presence in creating in the mid-
field, said Hillsdale head coach Samia
Shoman. We had chances but we couldnt
nish them. M-A played well.
The Bears took about 20 minutes to nd
their footing and after a handful of decent
looks at Hillsdales goal, nally found the
back of the net when Cassie Stansberry shot

Coach Jim Harbaugh made the announcement

Green Bay Packers (12-5) at Candlestick Park.
Sufce it to say we feel condent in David

The 49ers (11-4-1) signed
Billy Cundiff on Jan. 1 to
compete with Akers, a 15-
year veteran who has strug-
gled this season while mak-
ing only 29 of 42 eld-goal
He has plenty of support-
ers in the locker room who
still believe he can put the
ball through the uprights on
the NFLs biggest stage.
Its nice to see that Akers gets an opportuni-
ty to redeem himself, especially in the playoffs,
safety Donte Whitner said. If he does it in the
playoffs, I believe that everybody will forget
about the misses that he had in the regular sea-
Akers revealed last week he underwent double
hernia surgery last February, then re-aggravated
the area earlier this season when he slipped on
the eld during practice. After a Nov. 25 game at
New Orleans, Akers returned to the doctor in
Philadelphia who performed the surgery to
receive an injection.
The left-footed Akers understood why
Cundiff was brought in, but made it clear he
wants to remain the kicker.

For the rst 30 minutes of the
game, the Notre Dame-Belmont
girls soccer team was clearly the
better side in the Tigers matchup
with visiting Sacred Heart
Cathedral Thursday afternoon.
The Tigers played most of the rst
half in the Irishs end of the eld,
Michaela Brady was a distribution
machine in the mideld and was the
most dangerous player on the eld.
Her free kick from near mideld
was tipped wide by the Irish goal-
tender in the fth minute and her
shot from 35 yards out caromed off
the post in the seventh minute.
In the 14th minute, Brady con-
verted a penalty kick to give the
Tigers a 1-0 lead that was earned
when Jessica Parque was taken
But with ve minutes left in the
half, Sacred Heart Cathedral knot-
ted the score off a corner kick. That
swung the momentum to the Irish
and they controlled the second half.
The Irish pulled out a 2-1 win off
another corner kick with 13 minutes
to play and, just like that, Notre
Dame was saddled with its fourth
loss in ve games in West Catholic
Athletic League play.
Unbelievable, said Notre Dame
coach Matt Dodge. It was like we
were scared. That game should have
been put away three, four nothing in
the rst half.
Sacred Heart is one of those
teams that is just going to grind (all
game long).
Everything came relatively easy
to Notre Dame (1-4 WCAL, 7-5-1
overall) in the rst half. The Tigers
outshot the Irish 10-2 in the opening
40 minutes and the Irish rarely mus-
tered much of an attack. Brady was
essentially unstoppable, but
unlucky. In addition to her early
misses, she later had a one-timer
sail just over the crossbar to give her
four quality chances on goal.
Shes working so hard, Dodge
But the Tigers inability to string
together a series of passes consis-
tently started to hamper Bradys
mideld play. That in turn negated
19-goal scorer Parque, who was
slowly taken out of the game.
This (SHC) team is the type of
team we should be able to ping the
ball around against, Dodge said.
That was most clear in the second
half when sloppy passing thwarted
any kind of sustained attack for the
Tigers, while the Irish, emboldened
by their late rst-half goal, spent a
bulk of the time in the Notre Dame
end of the eld.
The second half, we didnt play
very well at all, Dodge said.
Despite the Tigers issues, they
were poised to pick up three crucial
points in the WCAL standings. That
is until their defense broke down on
a pair of Irish corner kicks. With
about ve minutes to play in the
opening half, SHC squared the
game at a goal apiece. Sarah Walley
sent a cross into the Notre Dame
penalty box, but the Tigers could not
clear it out of danger. The ball trick-
led out to Maria Platzer, who sent a
shot on goal. It wasnt necessarily
the strongest strike but, with the
crowd in the penalty box, the Notre
Dame goalkeeper could not keep
track of its path and it nestled into
the net for Platzers rst goal of the
The Irish carried that momentum
into the second half but, despite
having most of the run of play, did
not present too many dangerous
chances to the Notre Dame defense.
The Tigers still had a chance to
salvage one point with the draw,
until a bit of bad luck gave the Irish
the go-ahead goal again on a cor-
ner kick. Again it was Walley who
served the ball into the penalty box.
This time, however, her cross went
to the near post, where it deected
off a Notre Dame defender and spun
into the net.
The Tigers still had 13 minutes
left to get the equalizer but, despite
throwing everything at the Irish
goal, came up empty.
No one is stepping up with lead-
ership and theres no communica-
tion, Dodge said of his team.

after. A great run by Hillsdales

had to make another save on Diazs
The shutout was the goalie and
defense, Snow said. [That play]
could have turned the momentum,
absolutely. Being on their home
eld it could have easily been a dif-
ferent story if they got that goal. It
hyped us up a bit more and made us
play hard.
Thats been a theme, Shoman
said of her girls playing hard until
the nal whistle, but we have to be
able to nd the back of the net
same thing happened to us on
Tuesday [against Carlmont]. We had
opportunities and they go every-
where but in the back (of the net) so
that is something we have to contin-
uously try to find some goals.

We were just sloppy, Shoman
said of her teams defense. We can-
not make mistakes and Ive told my
girls over and over, in this league we
cannot make mistakes. If you make
a mistake, were going to pay for it.
So, its been hard.
Hillsdale played a more effective
style of soccer in the second half,
with spurts of offense courtesy of
Diaz and Katalina Morino. But they
lacked the nishing touch of a play-
er like Coleman in the last quarter of
the eld to really threaten M-A.
The Bears put the game way out
of reach in the 68th minute on
Missans second goal of the game
an almost empty net goal No. 9
smashed home for the 4-0 result.

Dee leads San Diego
past San Francisco 70-66
SAN FRANCISCO Johnny Dee scored
17 points and Cameron Miles hit back-to-back
3-pointers that helped San Diego pull away for
a 70-66 victory over San Francisco on
Thursday night.
Miles finished with 13 points for the
Toreros (9-8, 2-0 West Coast), who snapped
a six-game losing streak against San
Francisco. Chris Anderson added 10 points
and five assists.
San Francisco (7-9, 0-3) got 19 points from
Cody Doolin, 16 from Tim Derksen and 11
from Cole Dickerson.
San Diego hit 11 of 22 3-pointers, with most
coming at key moments.
Two straight 3s by John Sinis started a 9-0
run that put the Toreros ahead 26-17. After
San Diego took a 46-32 halftime lead, the
Dons opened the second half on a 20-7 run to
get within 53-52 on a 3-pointer by Derksen
with 12:14 remaining.
Miles responded with back-to-back 3s for
San Diego to build the lead back to seven, and
the Toreros held on from there.

SANTA CLARA Michael Crabtree real-
izes the moment he starts thinking about just
how much zip is coming on each pass from
Colin Kaepernick, thats when he might wind
up missing the ball.
And he hasnt been doing much missing
This playmaking, go-to tandem is on quite a
roll for the San Francisco 49ers, and they are
determined to keep it that way right into
These two sure have been making things
look easy ever since Kaepernick took over as
starting quarterback for San Francisco midsea-
son in place of Alex Smith. Coach Jim
Harbaugh and the rest of the offense are count-
ing on more of the same for the No. 2 seed
Niners (11-4-1) in Saturday nights divisional
playoff game against the Green Bay Packers at
Candlestick Park.
Weve been here before, Crabtree said.
Last year we came up a little short. I feel like
Ive got a little chip on my shoulder right now
and I cant wait to go back out there for the
playoffs. Big stage, big game for us as an
offense and defense and special teams.
Crabtree has left his forgettable playoffs of
last season in the past, producing a career year
that showed everybody why the 49ers selected
him 10th overall in the 2009 draft with the
belief he would quickly emerge as an elite
NFL wide receiver.
Not that Crabtree cares to discuss any of
that. He is counting down the minutes until
kickoff Saturday.
He nished with career highs of nine touch-
downs, 85 catches and 1,105 yards this season.
Crabtree also had ve TDs and 30 catches on
third-down plays both stats among the top
ve in the NFL.
Thats Texas Tech Crabtree, running back
Frank Gore said. Its not surprising. Just a
healthy Crabtree.
He has grown up a bit since his college days,
when he couldnt shed the diva tag wherever
he went. He has learned by watching Randy
Moss, on the eld and off. From running routes
to working out.
It seems so long ago that Crabtree was angri-
ly confronted by tight end Vernon Davis during
an early September practice two years ago, and
then-coach Mike Singletary had to step
between them. There have been no such known
issues since, and Davis has supported him.
If we can continue to get Crabtree involved
and he can help us the way he did last week,
then Im all for it, said Davis, whose role has
Crabtree led the team in catches (72) and
yards receiving last season (874). While he had
four catches for 25 yards and a 4-yard touch-
down reception in a 36-32 victory against
Drew Brees and the favored Saints in last sea-
sons NFC divisional playoffs, it was the NFC
championship game Crabtree remembers as a
most disappointing day.
San Franciscos receivers had just one catch
for 3 yards yes, it was by him and
Crabtree was targeted four times in a 20-17
overtime loss to the eventual Super Bowl
champion New York Giants.
Hes not one to reect on why San Francisco
fell short.
Just feel like that was last year. I dont real-
ly know what happened, Crabtree said. We
were just talking about opportunity and I said
something about that after the game last year
and I meant it, you know? Because Im a foot-
ball player, this is what I do for a living, and I
love it.
He has been targeted no fewer than nine
times in each of the last ve games, including
10 each against St. Louis and Miami, 12 at
New England, nine in a loss at Seattle and 11
in the regular-season nale against Arizona.
This isnt a new or recent thing in my mind.
Hes got a lot of skill. Hes very productive and
he loves to compete, Harbaugh said. Its not
the rst time balls have gone to him, or hes
caught balls or made big plays. This is some-
thing hes done for the better part of his
When at full strength, that is.
After a 71-day contract stalemate as a rook-
ie, Crabtree was sidelined during the 2010 pre-
season with a neck injury and again a year later
because of a broken foot that he sustained
while working out in Smith-organized prac-
tices during the NFL lockout.
Having him back on the eld has meant so
much to the franchise turning things around.
The 49ers ended an eight-year playoff absence
last season and have another chance at return-
ing to the Super Bowl for the rst time since
Ask anybody around the Niners, and
Crabtree has emerged as a leader. One example
of his talent: He nally signed his contract in
early October 2009, then cracked the starting
lineup by the end of the month.
When Crabtree celebrated his 25th birthday
back in September, Harbaugh asked him to say
a few words on the field after practice.
Crabtree challenged the offense to keep up
with the defense before a 27-19 win against the
Lions a game in which Crabtree delivered
three third-down conversion catches.
If he can do more of the same Saturday, all
the better for the 49ers chances. Last seasons
nish has weighed on the players minds ever
It has driven us a lot, said the media-shy
Crabtree, who owns more than 1,000 pairs of
shoes and displays his fancy sneakers on game
day. I feel like we need to win. I want to go to
the Super Bowl, you know? I want to do all
those things.
Crabtree scored his rst career touchdown at
Green Bay on Nov. 22, 2009, on a 38-yard pass
from Smith.
Hes playing well, Smith said Thursday. I
feel like hes the player hes been for a while.
Its just a matter of everybodys seeing it.
Notes: When asked Thursday if hes ever
sported a mullet hairdo, Harbaugh said: Ive
had the same haircut since I was 10 years old.

never had that. ... Toll takers at the Golden

their decit to 15-6. William Nichollos fol-
lowed with a rst-round pin and just like that,
South City trailed by just three points, 15-12.
It appeared South City was poised to tie the
match at 15 as Oscar Cortez built an 8-6 lead
over Half Moon Bays Dominic Pintarelli at
145. But in the waning seconds, Pintarelli
picked up one point for an escape and a three-
point near fall to pull out a 9-8 victory, giving
the Cougars some breathing room on the
scoreboard, 18-12.
After the teams exchanged forfeits at 152
and 160 pounds, Half Moon Bay picked up
six more points on a rst-round pin by Joseph
Lowman at 170. Lowman is ranked sixth in
CCS at 170 pounds. South City got the points
right back at 182, however, when Arthur
Georgiyev, ranked No. 1 in the division in
CCS, picked up a second-round pin, cutting
the Cougars lead to 30-24.
Half Moon Bay secured no worse than a tie
when the Warriors had to forfeit at 195, giving
the Cougars a 12-point lead, 36-24, meaning
South City would have to win the nal two
matches by pin to tie the score.
Instead, it was Half Moon Bay that swept
the last pair. Marcos Sarabia pinned his oppo-
nent in the second round and his brother
Mario Sarabia was awarded the nal six
points when South City forfeited the heavy-
weight match.
Baker said he was especially pleased with
the performance of Marschall at 113.
Marschall, a freshman who normally wrestles
at 106, was moved up to 113, giving up 12
pounds to Justin Delcastillo, also a freshman.
But Marschall handled his opponent with rel-
ative ease.
The meeting between these two squad
would usually have a league title hanging in
the balance, so it was surprising to see the
schedule makers make this match the league
opener. But both coaches said it wouldnt
really matter when their teams met.
Our league is like college football,
Matteucci said. You have to go undefeated

Andre Miller played a consistent 16 minutes
of offensive basketball and Caruso, after being
shutout in the rst quarter, scored seven in the
But the Bells hung in and foul trouble made
sure the Padres were never too far away.
I think our depth was huge in holding our
own through that situation, Rapp said. We
can go pretty deep with this team. We can get
athletic with our bench and we can just keep it
going. We can just attack in waves.
The lead for Serra was only six points at
recess with Miller as the high man with 10.
Bellarmine came out pretty hot to start the
second half. They shot 7 of 11 from the eld
in the third quarter and trimmed the Serra lead
to one with 3:24 left in the frame after Dylan
Tarpening knocked down a triple.
But enter Biggins, who started to enjoy the
long distance service provided by the left side
of the oor. No. 3 knocked down back-to-back
trifectas to build Serras lead back up to seven
and then knocked down one more before the
third quarter buzzer to ensure the Padres took
an eight-point advantage into the fourth peri-
Biggins hit those two 3s and that just real-
ly gave us a lift, Rapp said. It kind of poured
over to our defense. We started extending our
pressure, we started scrambling around on
defense. We picked it up. And that disrupted
them. Then all our sudden, we start moving on
offense. The players are moving, the ball is
moving, were getting good looks and it just
kind of rolled from there.
I started slow in the rst half, Biggins
said. But I felt I just had to get it going. My
teammates got me some good shots.
Caruso free throws to begin the fourth had
the Padres up by 11 and while the Bells locked
onto No. 30 for the majority of the game, the
Serra superstar did a fantastic job of not press-
ing, according to Rapp.
He let the game come to him, Rapp said.
And thats what experienced guys do. Hes
been there before. He makes the play that
presents himself. He was pretty big getting on
the boards.
A Caruso steal and slam dunk got the lead
to 12 and ve more Biggins points upped the
advantage to 18 with 3:25 left in the game.
For the second half, Serra held the Bells to
10 of 22 shooting from the oor.
Caruso nished with 15 points and nine

SAN FRANCISCO The anxiety-
lled green room and draft day seem so
long ago now to Aaron Rodgers.
Still, on this weekend, any lingering
feelings of frustration about how far he
dropped will be directed right at the
team that passed him up with the No. 1
pick nearly eight years ago.
Rodgers brings the high-scoring
Green Bay Packers (12-5) to
Candlestick Park on Saturday to face
No. 2 seed San Francisco (11-4-1) in
prime time for a
place in the NFC
champi onshi p
game. Hell take
the eld in the
very venue where
he became a regu-
lar fan as a boy
rooting for Hall of
Famers Jerry Rice
and Steve Young.
Rodgers, who
appeared in a preseason game at
Candlestick in 2008, will play his rst
meaningful game at the stadium at last,
as an eighth-year pro. He will look to
avenge a 30-22 season-opening home
loss to the 49ers.
It will be fun. I went to a few base-
ball games there growing up, and saw a
game there when I was in college,
Rodgers said. Stadiums got a lot of
tradition. Looks like were kind of for-
tunate with the weather right now. Still
wonder what thats going to be like.
But it will be a night game, it will be
loud, it will be a great environment and
it should be a good show for the fans.
Rodgers is putting on quite a show,
all right.
He returns to Northern California,
where he became a college star for
California across San Francisco Bay in
Berkeley, with a healthy cast of
receivers and the swagger of a Super
Bowl champion.
When Rodgers dropped to No. 24 in
the 2005 draft after Alex Smith went
No. 1, he was asked about his disap-
pointment. He so matter-of-factly said,
not as disappointed as the 49ers will
be that they didnt draft me.
Now, everybody in the Bay Area and
beyond will be watching his every
move again.
He already upset some friends he
couldnt accommodate with tickets.
Family rst, with everybody else mak-
ing the 4-hour trek from his hometown
of Chico left to fend for themselves.
Most important, of course, is getting
Green Bay one step closer to another
Super Bowl. Last seasons chance at a
repeat championship came to a
screeching halt at the hands of the
Giants in this very round at Lambeau
The Giants came to San Francisco
the next week and won the NFC title
game, 20-17 in overtime.

QUILTS. The San Jose Museum
of Quilts & Textiles the first in
the United States to focus exclu-
sively on quilts and textiles
commemorates its 35 year anniver-
sary with a large survey exhibition,
Collecting Treasures: Celebrating
35 Years. Drawing exclusively
from its own permanent collection,
the museum showcases important
early and historic quilts, recent
acquisitions of contemporary fiber
art and ethnic costume and textiles.
The 75 works on display through
Feb. 3 are loosely organized
around themes and styles, and
include the first quilt accessioned
into the collection (a Crazy Quilt,
1883-1884); a quilt by the wife of
Francis Scott Key, author of The
Star Spangled Banner
(Grandmothers Flower Garden by
Mary Tayloe Lloyd Key); a woven
piece with a poignant message on
the Gulf War but applicable to
todays ongoing conflicts (Weep
for the World, 1991 by Mary
Balzer Buskirk); a quilt with
humorous caricatures of forty-two
presidents from George
Washington to George W. Bush
(Presidents, by Dorothy Vance); a
never-before-exhibited, oversized
ritual dance costume from the
Yoruba people of West Africa (The
Egungun Ceremonial Garment);
and a traditional ritual textile with
traditional Japanese references by
Yvonne Porcella (Firebird
Exhibit Curator Deborah Corsini
said: This exhibition showcases
the rich diversity and varied textile
traditions that are a part of a mate-
rial culture and legacy that we care
for, appreciate and preserve. It
honors the timeless beauty of tex-
tiles, the amazing creativity of
unknown makers and contempo-
rary artists and the generosity of
countless donors to the collection.
TEXTILES. On display from Feb.
13 through April 28 is Folk Indian
Textiles from the Collection of
Carol Summer, an exhibition of 50
objects demonstrating the wealth
and breadth of the Indian folk tex-
tile tradition. The collection show-
cases a colorful and tactile variety
of decorated textiles, created with
brightly colored patchwork,
embroidery, applique, tie-dye,
block printing, painted cloth, quilt-
ing textiles, hand weaving and
hand sewing, all to dramatic effect.
These objects are highlights from
the private collection that local
artist Carol Summers has been
gathering since 1974. The collec-
tion is comprised of a range of tex-
tiles created by unknown women
(and men) in India both utilitar-
ian and festive with no pretense
of being comprehensive. They are
20th-century folk textiles collected
with an appreciation for the beauty
of design and craftsmanship, rather
than perfection.
Also shown Feb. 13 through
April 28 is Meditation in Space &
Time: Junco Sato Pollack Sutra
Chants Hangings and Stitch by
Stitch Mandalas. Join artist Junco
Sato Pollack for this unique stitch-
ing demonstration and meditation
practice. Museum visitors can par-
ticipate by stitching wishes or
mantras onto a piece of blank sutra
fabric prepared by the artist and
then pinning it onto the Collective
Mandala intended to commemo-
rate the second anniversary of the
March 11, 2011 earthquake and
tsunami in Japan. The artist is in
the galleries 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. each
day from Feb. 13 through Feb. 16.
From May 8 through July 21, the
Museum stages Threads of Love:
Baby Carriers from Chinas
Minority Nationalities, presenting
a rich folk art tradition of hand-
embroidered baby carriers from
the minority nationalities of south-
western China. The exhibit high-
lights the symbolic decorations
traditionally used to embellish
these otherwise utilitarian, though
lovingly made textiles. Auspicious
symbols connote good luck, good
fortune, happy marriage and
longevity. This selection of baby
carriers is drawn from the Miao
(known as Hmong in their native
language), Zhuang, Yao and Shui
nationalities from the Chinas
southwestern provinces of Yunnan,
Guizhou and Guangxi.

ure. With his mashed-up boxers mug,
thick Brooklyn accent and volatile bursts
of anger, hes as cartoony as a Dick
Tracy villain. While Gangster Squad
certainly has its intended moments of
humor, the laughs Penns performance
prompts might not have been part of the
plan. Or maybe they were who
The script from former Los Angeles
police homicide detective Will Beall,
based on the book Gangster Squad by
ex-Los Angeles Times writer and editor
Paul Lieberman, focuses on a time of
ux in the city after World War II. Gang
control of crime, cops and politicians
had spread to the West Coast from places
like New York and Chicago. Cohen had
everyone of importance in his pocket
and was on the verge of expanding his
reach even further with a power play that
would give him a piece of every wire bet
placed in the Western half of the United
The gruff and grizzled police chief (a
gruff and grizzled Nick Nolte) realizes
the only way to conquer Cohen is to
ght by his rules that is, by no rules
at all. So he asks Sgt. John OMara
(Brolin), a principled, heroic war veter-
an, to put together a band of outsiders to
destroy his empire without serving war-
rants or making arrests.
His sidekick is the initially reluctant
Sgt. Jerry Wooters (Gosling, chain
smoking and speaking in a weird, whis-
pery voice), who prefers booze and
women to trouble. Nevertheless, he
makes the mistake of getting involved
with Mickeys moll, the classy,
wannabe-star Grace. Stone is gorgeous
with her wavy red locks, glam makeup
and sexy gowns, but theres not much to
her besides looking good, which is a
huge waste of Stones vibrant presence
(not to mention the Crazy Stupid Love
reunion she shares with Gosling).
The rest of the team consists of tried-
and-true types, each of whom gets a one-
liner here or there: the folksy, old-school
gunslinger (Robert Patrick), the nerdy
tech guru (Giovanni Ribisi) and most
dismayingly the token black and
Hispanic members, played by Anthony
Mackie and Michael Pena, respectively.
Seriously, thats all theyre given to work
with, and these are charismatic actors
ordinarily capable of great command. (If
you want to see Pena in a far superior
movie about LA police ofcers, check
out last years End of Watch.)
Gangster Squad was supposed to
have come out last year, as well, featur-
ing a climactic shootout in which gang-
sters fire automatic weapons from
behind a movie screen at Hollywoods
historic Graumans Chinese Theatre.
After the July shooting at a showing of
The Dark Knight Rises that left 12
people dead in Aurora. Colo., that scene
clearly had to be removed, which
required extensive reshoots and a
release-date change from September
until now.
Still, you shouldnt expect a kinder,
gentler lm. Gangster Squad is brutal,
with a barrage of gunre that becomes
deafening and, ultimately, boring. The
sheer volume of these gun battles, often
depicted in stylized slo-mo or with quick
blasts of light, undermines the signi-
cance of whos going down and whats
at stake.
In the end, who lives and who dies
doesnt really matter. Its all just noise
disguised as entertainment.
Gangster Squad, a Warner Bros.
Pictures release, is rated R for strong
violence and language. Running time:
113 minutes. One and a half stars out of
Continued from page 16
The problem was that the preview,
which had been scheduled to debut
before some showings of the latest
Batman lm that weekend, featured a
peek at a pivotal moment in the 1940s
true-crime romp when Los Angeles
mobsters ruthlessly shoot into a movie
theater audience.
Thus began an arduous odyssey to the
screen of a lm loosely based on vio-
lence 60 years ago impacted by the real-
life violence of today from the
Colorado massacre that forced the
reshooting of a key scene, through the
countrys mourning following the
Connecticut elementary school shooting
last month, to this weeks replaying of
the July theater horror in a Colorado
courtroom just as the lm prepares to
nally open on Friday.
Fleischer couldnt initially process
what was happening in that moment
when he was on the phone last summer
but eventually, everyone involved with
Gangster Squad agreed: The scene
was just too similar and had to be cut
not just from the trailer, but also from
the movie, which was set for release two
months later.
Many conversations followed that,
and we talked about it and very quickly
decided that the appropriate action
would be to take the scene out of the
movie out of respect for the families
who suffered that loss in the tragedy,
said Fleischer. Because we didnt know
when we were gonna come out or what
was happening, we decided we have to
come up with a new scene.
So the entire movie theater sequence
featuring Josh Brolins hard-boiled cop
John OMara being ambushed inside
famed Hollywood movie palace
Graumans Chinese Theater was excised
from Gangster Squad.
For many of the lms cast and crew
members, it was their favorite scene in
the highly stylized gangster ick, which
tells the tale of the real-life tussle
between off-the-books LA police of-
cers and an army of mobsters.
I was really impressed with Ruben
(cutting the scene) because it was the
best scene in the movie, said Ryan
Gosling, who plays reluctant squad
member Jerry Wooters. There was an
alchemy about it. Everything came
together. It was the most cinematic part
of the lm because it happened in a cin-
ema, as well, but there was just some-
thing special about it.
The scene was lmed over four nights
at the real Graumans and outside on
Hollywood Boulevard, where the
shootout between the squad and the
goons of mob boss Mickey Cohen
(played by Sean Penn) spilled out. The
iconic theater and surrounding area was
meticulously transformed for the action
sequence with vintage vehicles and
extras clad in period costumes.
It was really eerie, Brolin said of the
original scenes parallel to the real-life
shooting in Aurora. I respected and
supported the decision immediately. Its
still a violent replacement. It just hap-
pens in Chinatown. Its just as violent. It
just doesnt remind you of this thing that
happened. Its probably going to anyway
because everyone knows its been
Several members of the cast and crew
reassembled nearly a year after lming
completed on Gangster Squad to shoot
the new sequence in LAs Chinatown
section just north of downtown.
The scene, which cost several million
dollars to reshoot, ts seamlessly into
the lm and functions narratively in the
same way as the original: Brolins
OMara is ambushed, only this time by
an exploding laundry truck instead of
gun-toting gangsters.

It doesnt appear to include any elimina-
tion of the cuts proposed for this scal year or
next. That puts us back to the same place,
said John Fitton, chief executive ofcer of the
San Mateo County Superior Court.
Fitton said the courts cant even hang their
hat on the idea that at least the proposed cuts
arent worse because last year much of the
negative news for that branch came later in
the budget cycle.
Browns proposal would take another $200
million from the courts by delaying court-
house construction projects in favor of opera-
tions and give the states system approxi-
mately $3.1 billion. The system, which
includes 58 trial courts and the California
Supreme Court, has already lost about $1.2
billion over the last few years.
For San Mateo County, that has already
meant a $2.72 million loss already absorbed
and another $5.4 million in scal year 2012-
13. In September, the court began issuing
announcements that up to six courtrooms face
closure beginning July 1, 2013 unless the
state restores funding. Commissioners and
other employees, court services and hours
could also be on the chopping block.
The court has already consolidated trafc
courts and moved family law and restraining
order matters to the Hall of Justice in
Redwood City as cost-savings moves.
Attitudes were more positive over in the
Human Services Agency where director
Beverly Beasley Johnson said the department
will be working with other counties and state
organizations to gure out what the proposal
means for San Mateo Countys needy chil-
dren, families and adults.
We are cautiously optimistic that the gov-
ernors budget will enable us to maintain cur-
rent service levels to county residents but it is
too soon to tell, Johnson said.
Too soon to tell was the common theme
throughout the local response to the state
Don Horsley, president of the Board of
Supervisors, said it seems like a pretty
good budget for its lack of drastic cuts to
health and safety programs and its spend-
ing on the Affordable Care Act. He is also
glad the inmate realignment formula
stands because there was worry the gover-
nor might shift more locally in response to
the ongoing federal demand to reduce the
state prison population.
The only thing we dont know is about
school funding and we dont want to pit
things like health and safety against educa-
tion. So were just kind of watching it. Were
being cautious, Horsley said.
County Manager John Maltbie also said
concerns include the impact of the school
funding proposal on the countys property tax
allocations, otherwise known as the
Education Revenue Augmentation Fund, and
the vehicle licensing fees.
The complexity of school nancing and the
calculations of the two funding streams
means it will take a little while to gure it out,
Maltbie said.

The real changes come from Browns push to
simplify how schools are funded. Called the
Local Control Funding Formula, the idea is
to have a base per pupil amount with the
opportunity to get more money based on the
number of students who are English lan-
guage learners and eligible for free or
reduced lunch. Basic aid districts, which
have more than the per-pupil funding
through property taxes which would be
most districts in San Mateo County can
keep the funds.
I admire the governors determination to
move forward with an overhaul of
Californias confusing system of school
finance, and I share his desire to direct more
help to students and schools with the greatest
needs, State Superintendent Tom Torlakson
wrote in a prepared statement. At the same
time, I remain concerned about the fragile
fiscal state of so many school districts and
preserving state priorities. I look forward to
examining details of the governors proposal
and working closely with the education com-
munity throughout this challenging process.
So far the proposal outlines ideas and not
the dollar and cent challenges for districts.
Gov. Browns budget is a positive move
for K-12 education and we are waiting to see
how it directly affects our school district,
said Laura Phan, San Mateo-Foster City
Elementary School District chief business
Dean E. Vogel, president of Burlingame-
based California Teachers Association, said
they appreciate the recognition that it takes
more money to educate some students, but
are concerned about the overall structure of
the new system.
Giving local control means not having ear-
marked money. This will most likely cause
problems very soon. For example, the addi-
tional funds for education is thought to help
lower class sizes in kindergarten through
third grade classrooms. However, the new
system means the state cannot require dis-
tricts to use the money in class-size reduc-
tion. Also, locally, a number of districts do
not have the additional space to facilitate
smaller class sizes anyway.
More flexibility comes with one additional
requirement: creating and adopting a district
plan for student achievement that is aligned
with each districts annual budget, according
to the proposal.
Changes are also proposed to make online
class options easier for both high schools and
colleges to offer. This could come in handy
for the San Mateo Union High School
District that has been offering an online
option for students concurrently enrolled
who need to earn extra credits.
Another big change will be putting the
responsibility to offer adult education with
community colleges rather than K-12 dis-
tricts. The hope is to eliminate redundancies
and better serve local adults with programs
like English, vocational skills and citizen-
ship. A change that will need to be made
locally is that the San Mateo County
Community College District currently does-
nt offer classes that arent for credit like
a citizenship class.

$23 million from vehicle fees, a 3 percent de-
Brown is proposing a sweeping overhaul to the way K-
12 money is distributed. His plan would establish a
base funding grant for every student that would be
supplemented with additional money for students
whose rst language is not English or those from low-
income homes.
Schools in which more than half the students are
low-income or English-learners would receive even
more money. His overhaul is intended to boost achieve-
ment at the most impoverished schools, but it is likely
to draw criticism from districts with more afuent par-
The governors proposal would eliminate dozens of
so-called categoricalfunding streams, which provide
additional money for everything from physical edu-
cation programs to school safety.That would free local
school districts to decide how best to spend the money
and presumably cut the bureaucracy associated with
Democratic and Republican lawmakers gave tepid sup-
port for the concept, but said the formula was too
complicated to quickly evaluate.
Brown also would shift about $300 million for adult
education programs from K-12 districts to community
colleges, which Brown says are better suited to meet
the needs of adults.
Community colleges will receive an additional $197
million (a 3.6 percent increase), as well as $179 million
owed by the state. They also would receive $17 mil-
lion to create a virtual campus of 250 new online
The University of California and California State Uni-
versity will receive an additional $250 million each.
They would receive steady funding increases over the
next four years in exchange for keeping tuition at cur-
rent levels.
Brown wants colleges and universities to offer more
online courses to help expand access and reduce costs.
The UC and CSU systems would receive $10 million
each to develop online versions of high-demand
He also wants to cap the number of units undergrad-
uates can take at in-state tuition levels to create in-
centives for students to complete degrees in a timely
The budget for the California Department of Correc-
tions and Rehabilitation rises slightly, to nearly $9
billion, despite Browns attempts to control spending.
The governor led court documents earlier this week
seeking to regain state control of inmate health care,
which has been operating under federal oversight be-
cause of unconstitutionally poor conditions. If federal
judges agree, Brown said the state could reduce spend-
ing on what he called a gold-platedmedical system
that has undergone billions of dollars worth of im-
He also wants to return thousands of inmates to Cali-
fornia from private prisons in other states as a
cost-saving move.
Reimbursements from the state to local governments
for handling lower-level criminals will climb to nearly
$6.4 billion, up $430 million from last year.The money
from sales and motor vehicle license fees was guar-
anteed to counties as part of Browns 14-month-old
inmate realignment law, which is shifting thousands
of criminals from state prisons to county jails to ease
prison crowding and save money.
The budget estimates that California will take in $200
million this year from the sale of greenhouse gas per-
mits sold in the states cap-and-trade program, which
puts a price on carbon emitted from power plants, ce-
ment factories and other industries. That number will
grow to $400 million in 2013-14.
The cap-and-trade money can be spent only on pro-
grams that further the goals of Californias global
warming law, AB 32, in limiting greenhouse gas emis-
sions. Some of it is also being returned to utility
ratepayers in the form of a dividend meant to offset
rate increases due to cap-and-trade and to help with
air quality programs in poor areas.
While there are few details about exactly how this
windfall will be spent, the budget gives some hints.
High-speed rail is at the top of the list, in part because
vehicles are the top source of greenhouse gas emis-
sions. Not only would high-speed rail infrastructure be
funded, but the budget says electrication and en-
ergy projects that complement high speed rail will
also benet.
Other areas that might receive cap-and-trade money
include urban forestry projects and sustainable agri-
culture, because farms are responsible for a share of
the states diesel emissions.

than spending all the surplus now.
The budget is balanced on the gen-
erosity of the voters, state Sen. Jerry
Hill, D-San Mateo, told the Daily
Journal yesterday. The state has shed a
lot of pounds and the Legislature needs
to resist gorging itself on the surplus to
retain a new scal health.
Browns local control funding propos-
al for K-12 education might be good for
urban communities but could be harmful
to basic aid districts in the suburbs, Hill
We cant continue to have winners
and losers. We need winners and win-
ners when it comes to education.
Browns plan might just set up a new set
of winners and new set of losers, Hill
Freshman Assemblyman Kevin
Mullin, D-South San Francisco, sup-
ports equalizing funding between lower
wealth and higher wealth school districts
but has concerns if there is a heavy
wealth transfer from basic aid districts to
other districts.
My hope would be that additional
revenues would be directed to lower
wealth districts but that basic aid dis-
tricts remain unharmed. I am encour-
aged by the emphasis on local control
and giving school boards more autono-
my to meet the needs of local districts,
Mullin wrote in a statement.
Assemblyman Rich Gordon, D-Menlo
Park, spent his rst two years in ofce
facing huge decits of $26 billion and
$16 billion respectively.
This is absolutely the best budget I
have seen, Gordon told the Daily
Journal. Weve taken down the debt and
built up the reserve but we should be set-
ting money aside because the economy
is cyclical.
Gordon has concerns about proposed
cuts to the states court system.
I suspect the product we see today
wont be the product we adopt in May,
he said. Court funding will have a lot of
discussion. We dont want to make cuts
to the point where the courts can no
longer deliver justice.
Going forward, Gordon said, the state
must maintain scal discipline.
Assemblywoman Connie Conway, R-
Tulare, the top-ranking Republican in
the Assembly, appreciates the governors
live within our means approach to the
budget but said the problems with it are
not solved yet.
Now is not the time to enact massive
spending increases that will reverse the
progress weve made in reducing the
decit, Conway wrote in a statement.
Assemblyman Jeff Gorell, R-
Camarillo, called Browns spending plan
a realistic budget framework for
Gorell is the vice chair of the Budget
Committee in the Assembly and sup-
ports Browns expectation that tuition be
frozen at state colleges.
I hope the governor would support
our efforts to pass Assembly Bill 67, a
statutory guarantee to freeze tuition for
Californians for the next seven years, the
same time Proposition 30 is in effect,
Gorell wrote in a statement.
But state Sen. Bob Huff, R-Diamond
Bar, challenges that Browns pledge to
boost education funding is not enough.
New funding to our classrooms is a
positive step forward for California.
However, the governors budget only
seems to include $2.7 billion in new
funding for K-12 schools and communi-
ty colleges even though Proposition 30
taxes will generate $6 billion this year
alone Californians should be disap-
pointed, Huff wrote in a statement.
Huff said the budget is balanced
because of voter-approved tax measures
passed in November.
Basically, this budget is balanced by
a $50 billion tax increase and
Californians have yet to see any real,
long-term plan to bring back jobs and
help our struggling families, Huff wrote
in the statement.
With the elimination of Californias
structural decit, there should be no
more severe cuts to schools and social
services, said state Sen. Leland Yee, D-
San Francisco/San Mateo.
Browns budget should prevent tuition
hikes at state universities and communi-
ty colleges, Yee said.
With the states scal outlook improv-
ing, now is the time to analyze the role
of government and its effectiveness, said
state Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco.
With the improvement of our scal
outlook comes the opportunity to contin-
ue our work to restore California. While
our recent efforts have focused largely
on making cuts in the least harmful man-
ner possible, we will now have more
capacity to rene our work to improve
essential programs, Leno wrote in a
Continued from page 1
something that has eluded us for more
than a decade a budget that lives
within its means, now and for many
years to come, Brown said during a
news conference at the Capitol.
A rebounding economy coupled with
new revenue from the higher sales and
income taxes voters approved last
November have put the nations most
populous state on a healthier nancial
trajectory as it begins to turn the corner
on an era of deep budget shortfalls and
spending cuts to core programs.
Californias persistent budget woes
came to represent the plight of states
struggling through the recession as tax
revenue declined steeply, leaving gover-
nors and state legislatures around the
country little choice but to consider deep
cuts or unpopular tax increases.
Brown took both approaches. He
pushed an austerity message that forced
cuts throughout state government during
his rst two years in ofce while per-
suading California voters to approve
increases to the state sales tax and high-
er income taxes on the wealthy.
Despite the new revenue owing in,
Brown has warned his Democratic col-
leagues who control both houses of the
Legislature that they must not overplay
their hand and spend too freely. The gov-
ernor wants to build a reserve fund for
future downturns to help smooth the
type of boom-and-bust budget cycles
that have become chronic in California.
And Im determined to avoid the s-
cal mess that the last few governors had
to deal with, Brown said. The way you
avoid it is by holding the line, by exer-
cising a common sense approach to how
we spend our money.
His budget includes a rainy day fund
of $1 billion and even drew cautious
praise from Republicans, the minority
party in the Legislature. GOP lawmakers
had opposed Browns tax initiative and
had refused to work with him a year ear-
lier to raise taxes in exchange for pen-
sion overhauls.
Republican Assemblyman Jeff Gorell
of Camarillo called Browns proposal a
realistic budget framework. He said
Republicans would try to ensure that the
states four-year higher education sys-
tems do not raise tuition for at least
seven years the length of time the
higher income taxes on the wealthy will
remain in effect.
The University of California and
California State University each
received $250 million more in the gover-
nors budget proposal.
Brown said Thursday that he will urge
higher education leaders to avoid charg-
ing students more after years of runaway
tuition hikes.
He wants the additional money from
the tax hikes focused on public schools.
His plan includes $2.7 billion more for
K-12 education and community col-
leges, bringing state and local spending
to $56.2 billion.
Among Browns priorities is creating
a new education funding formula. It
would be aimed at giving school districts
more control over spending and direct-
ing state money to the neediest children
and poorest districts.
His proposal is expected to run into
opposition from lawmakers representing
more afuent regions of the state, but
Brown said the state should spend pro-
portionally more on students who have
disproportionate challenges.
Growing up in Compton or
Richmond is not like it is to grow up in
Los Gatos or Beverly Hills or
Piedmont, he said of his redistribution

Petition for Probate requests that Mary
G. Sancimino be appointed as personal
representative to administer the estate of
the decedent.
The petition requests authority to admin-
ster the estate under the Independent

thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an ob-
jection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: January 16, 2013 at
9:00 a.m., Superior Court of California,
County of San Mateo, 400 County Cen-
ter, Redwood City, CA 94063. If you ob-
ject to the granting of the petition, you
203 Public Notices
should appear at the hearing and state
your objections or file written objections
with the court before the hearing. Your
appearance may be in person or by your
attorney. If you are a creditor or a con-
tingent creditor of the decedent, you
must file your claim with the court and
mail a copy to the personal representa-
tive appointed by the court within four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters as provided in Probate Code sec-
tion 9100. The time for filing claims will
not expire before four months from the
hearing date noticed above. You may
examine the file kept by the court. If you
are a person interested in the estate, you
may file with the court a Request for
Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing
of an inventory and appraisal of estate
assets or of any petition or account as
provided in Probate Code section 1250.
A Request for Special Notice form is
available from the court clerk.
