San Mateo County
earns top weekly
wages in nation
Local workers making an
average of $2,724 a week
By Michelle Durand
San Mateo County workers earned the top weekly wage
among large size counties in the entire nation last year,
according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics which
released the employment data Wednesday.
Workers in the county earned an average of $2,724 per
week between December 2012 and December 2013. Based
on four weeks in a month, that pencils out to about
$130,000 a year. New York came in second at $2,041 fol-
lowed by Santa Clara County.
Large counties are dened as those with 2012 annual aver-
age employment levels of 75,000.
But the glowing numbers need to be taken with a grain of
salt and not just appraised in a bubble, said Rosanne Foust,
Dead anchovies in
Foster Citys lagoon
Natural occurrence blamed on fish
depleting necessary oxygen supply
By Samantha Weigel
Visitors and residents near Foster Citys Gull and Marlin
parks may have witnessed a natural phenomenon last week-
end as thousands of anchovies died and washed ashore on the
lagoons beaches because their sheer volume depleted the
oxygen they needed.
Once city ofcials noticed the dead sh washing ashore
and in the lagoon, which is fed by the Bay, they immediate-

It replaces an
existing water bond
that was approved
by a previous
Legislature but was
widely considered too costly and too
bloated with pork-barrel projects to
win favor with voters.
After weeks of difcult negotiations,
the ballot measure sailed through both
houses of the Legislature: 77-1 in the
Assembly and 37-0 in the Senate.

Ahuge uptick in drivers in Millbrae
heading home with tickets from April
to May is under investigation, but of-
cials have discovered the cameras are
more accurate now than they were
before a new camera was installed.
Between April and May 2014 the
number of red light tickets issued
jumped from 669 to 1,525, according
to recent data emailed to the Millbrae
City Council by
HighwayRobbery.net, a blog that
monitors red light cameras in the
state. Thats 856 extra tickets in a
month worth $428,000. In June, the
number of red light tickets dropped to
1,255, still 586 more than in the
month prior.
The San Mateo Police Department,
that is contracted to run the red light
cameras, was in charge of investigat-
ing the lights and ultimately found
that a light that had been replaced in
April is functioning properly now,
said City Clerk Angela Louis.
Back in April that camera, the
southbound (Highway) 101 offramp
onto Millbrae Avenue, was damaged
and replaced with a new camera in
May, Louis said. It was repositioned
in a better location and it has opti-
mized for capturing the violations.
Ive been told by the contractor (the
San Mateo Police Department) the sys-
tem is working correctly.
There are two other red light cameras
in Millbrae, one at Rollins Road and
Millbrae Avenue, along with Millbrae
Avenue and El Camino Real. Situations
like this are always a concern to mem-
bers of the City Council, said
Councilwoman Marge Colapietro. As
long as the city went through a thor-
ough check of the camera, then she is
concerned about the number of viola-
tions at that location.

Maserati patrol car
raises police suspicions
BRAINTREE, Mass. Police patrol
cars are usually Fords or Chryslers,
not Maseratis.
So when a patrolman in Braintree,
Massachusetts, spotted a Maserati
resembling a police cruiser over the
weekend, he pulled it over.
Deputy Chief Wayne Foster tells The
Patriot Ledge the luxury Italian vehi-
cles body was painted black and white
with a police-style shield on the
doors, and police-related decals.
Foster said the door shield wasnt
accompanied by the usual police
phrase Protect and Serve, but rather
with Decepticons punish and
The driver told the ofcer who pulled
him over that he was actually assist-
ing police because other drivers
noticed him and slowed down, think-
ing it was a police vehicle.
The driver, whose name was not
made public, was summoned to court
to face a charge of impersonating a
police ofcer.

Toe dispute prompts
arrest of beauty contestant
RIVERSIDE Ofcials say a 22-
year-old beauty pageant contestant
has been arrested in California after
being caught on video walking com-
fortably in high heels while collect-
ing workers compensation benet s
after saying she had a broken toe.
The state Department of Insurance
said Tuesday that Shawna Lynn Palmer
claimed she fractured a toe while work-
ing at a supermarket.
A doctor issued her crutches and an
orthopedic shoe, and she collected
workers comp. However, the agency
says in a release that Palmer was later
videotaped walking with no discom-
fort while competing to become Miss
Toyota at the Long Beach Grand Prix.
Jail records show Palmer was arrest-
ed Friday in Riverside on three felony
counts of defrauding an insurance com-
pany. She was released on $5,000
bail. Efforts to reach Palmer for com-
ment were unsuccessful.

Los Angeles to pay $26M
after banning worker naps
LOS ANGELES The Los Angeles
City Council has nalized a $26 mil-
lion payment to settle a lawsuit over a
ban on lunchtime naps by garbage
truck drivers.
The 9-2 vote on Tuesday resolved a
class-action suit involving nearly
1,100 sanitation workers who said
they were improperly barred from
sleeping and engaging in other activi-
ties during their meal breaks, the Los
Angeles Times reported.
Councilman Paul Krekorian, who
supported the payment, said in paper-
work led with the council that the city
could have faced damages closer to $40
million had a settlement not been

Someone called and complained that

Aug. 9.
A66-year-old man convicted of torching a
car at the Daly City Department of Motor
Vehicles pleaded no contest to robbing
$5,000 from a Redwood City bank two days
after his release in the earlier arson case.
Hugo Carranza changed his mind as jury
selection was to start and pleaded no contest
to felony robbery and admitted the prior
felony strike conviction. Prosecutors asked
for a six-year prison deal but the judge indi-
cated she would limit the time to four years
prison and consider a defense request to dis-
count the earlier strike.
He remains in custody on $50,000 bail
pending his Oct. 1 sentencing hearing.
On March 14, a man later identied as
Carranza walked into the
Bank of America at 700
Jefferson Ave. around
2:10 p.m. and demanded
of a teller Give me
$5,000 in a box!
The teller reported
being confused by the
request and asked if he
wanted to make a with-
drawal from his account.
The man replied No, from the bank and
simulated having a gun in his pocket. The
teller gave the man the money and triggered
the silent alarm which led police to wait for
the robber when he exited the bank. All the
money was recovered.
Just two days before the robbery, Carranza
was released from custody with credit for
time served after pleading no contest to
arson. In that case, Carranza was angry
because he paid nes at DMV after San
Francisco police towed his vehicle due to an
expired registration but could not get it
released. On April 23, 2012, he lled a bot-
tle with oil or gas, randomly selected what
he thought was an employees vehicle and
poured the liquid over two tires before light-
ing them on fire. The 2008 Cadillac
Escalade was scorched and the ames also
damaged a Honda in an adjacent space.
Carranza was committed to a state hospi-
tal for several months after his arrest before
being found t for prosecution.

Ex facing year jail for stalking
former girlfriends husband
A 37-year-old man who prosecutors say
called his former girl-
friends husband dozens of
times with threats of harm
and eventually went to the

home to have it out is

Prosecutors sought a
16-month sentence for

Rustad reportedly began a romantic rela-
tionship last summer with his alleged vic-
tims wife. In December, she left her husband
to move in with Rustad but asked to come
back on Jan. 8 because she said he was ver-
bally abusive, according to prosecutors.
Throughout the night of Jan. 8 and into the
next day, Rustad allegedly called 68 times and
left 24 messages of escalating threats such as
being outside the home waiting to get him.
Sheriffs deputies could not locate Rustad but
were called to the couples gated community
early the next morning because he was there
to see the husband. Deputies arrested Rustad

Williams was everywhere in San
Francisco, it seemed, as he made a
place for himself in the everyday
fabric of a city where he once said
he passed for normal.
The comedian was there to usher
a few fellow inhabitants of the Bay
Area into life visiting a pedi-
atric ward, unheralded, each year on
Christmas Day to welcome new-
borns to the world.
He also ushered friends out of
life delivering a boisterous eulo-
gy for an iconic local journalist
known as Mr. San Francisco, mus-
ing on heaven as a nice bar in the
city with a dry martini.
In between, Williams had turned
out to cheer everything from the
Giants to the opening of a local
public library. Bay Area people got
used to seeing the actor at restau-
rants and stand-up clubs, even
handing out treats to children at his
house, with a topiary dinosaur
looming in the yard, at Halloween.
After word of his apparent suicide
this week at his home in Marin
County, residents who had encoun-
tered Williams recalled a comedian
who didnt always try to be funny
but never failed to be gracious.
In 1998, Dr. Carrie Chen and col-
leagues at the University of
California-San Francisco hospital
had just delivered a premature baby
on Christmas Day. And then
someone knocked at the door and
said Robin Williams was there,
Chen said.
He looked at this tiny baby, all
the tubes and IVs coming out of
him. And then he looked each and
every one of us in the eye, and per-
sonally thanked us for being there
on Christmas Day, and for being
there for the baby, Chen recalled.
He made it all about us and not
about him, she said.
The only child of a well-off auto
executive, Williams was born in
Chicago and moved to Larkspur
north of San Francisco with his
family in the late 1960s. In a 1991
interview with an Oklahoma news-
paper, Williams credited going to a
gestalt Marin County high
school where he said a teacher
one day shared that he had just
taken LSD with helping him dis-
cover comedy as a way to bridge
the gap he felt between himself and

A large international study questions the
conventional wisdom that most people
should cut back on salt, suggesting that the
amount most folks consume is OK for heart
health and too little may be as bad as too
much. The ndings came under immediate
attack by other scientists.
Limiting salt is still important for people
with high blood pressure and in fact, a sec-
ond study estimates that too much sodium
contributes to up to 1.65 million deaths each
year. The studies both have strengths and
weaknesses, and come as the U.S. govern-
ment is preparing to nudge industry to trim
sodium in processed and restaurant foods.
The rst studys leader, Dr. Salim Yusuf of
McMaster Universitys Population Health
Research Institute in Hamilton, Ontario,
urged keeping an open mind.
There are those who have made a career out
of promoting extreme sodium reduction that
will attack us, he said. Its better to focus on
healthy lifestyles and overall diets instead of
a single element, and that is something
everyone can rally around.
No one should view this as permission to
eat more salt, he said, adding that most peo-
ple should stay where they are.
The studies are in Thursdays New England
Journal of Medicine.
Yusufs is observational, rather than a
strict experiment, and has big limitations in
its methods. But its size lends strength
more than 100,000 people in 17 countries,
the largest on this topic. Its also from a gen-
eral population, not just people at high risk
of heart disease, as many past studies have
Researchers found:
Sodium levels generally correlate with
the risk of high blood pressure. But this link
is strongest when sodium intake is high and
wasnt seen at all when consumption is low.
The link also is stronger as people age.
Adifferent nutrient potassium, found
in vegetables and fruits seems to lower
blood pressure and heart risks, and offsets
sodiums effect.
People who consume 3 to 6 grams of
sodium a day (about 8 to 15 grams of salt) had
the lowest risk of heart problems or death
from any cause during the nearly four-year
study. More or less sodium raised risk. About
three-fourths of the worlds population is in
the ideal range. Americans average roughly 4
grams a day.
Study questions need for
most people to cut salt
Guidelines from various groups for heart disease prevention recommend 1.5 to 2.4 grams of
sodium a day.The American Heart Association advises no more than 1.5 grams.

recently read an
article in the trade
journal American
Funeral Director
about the famous
quote by the late
Sir William Ewart
Gladstone, the celebrated English four term
Prime Minister who was known for his
colorful oratories and speeches on the floor
of Parliament. This 19
century statesman
was renowned for many unique sayings, but
he is most noted among Funeral Directors
for saying this: Show me the manner in
which a nation cares for its dead, and I will
measure with mathematical exactness the
tender mercies of its people, their respect for
the laws of the land and their loyalty to high
ideals. This quote is very lyrical and well
thought out. It has become a long time
custom for many Funeral Homes to display
this quote on a plaque for all to see. The
meaning is obvious and is a direct
comparison between caring for our fallen
loved ones and the way we care for
ourselves, our community and our society.
To many observers it may appear that
weve lost the motivation to care for our
loved ones in a proper way, and that our
society has become misguided. Taking into
consideration the way our government
leaders sometimes act, without the maturity
to function unselfishly, is disturbing, and the
reasons they got elected can be alarming.
Also, in the eyes of logical people violence
should be against our nature, but seemingly
is embedded in our way of life. It is topsy-
turvy for a culture to view cruelty and tribal
brutality as a form of normality, and for love
to be viewed as an obscenity.
Yes, some say our society is falling apart,
but looking at the overall big picture I see
most people yearning to live a peaceful and
courteous life with those around them. Most
people are not violent. Most people want to
be accepted. Most people want to be happy.
Remember that hate is taught.
Wouldnt it make more sense for love to
be taught? Teaching youngsters to be
curious and to enjoy the differences of
those around them would be a good start.
They say that its hard to teach old dogs new
tricks. But old dogs will not be here forever,
and with effort every young dog could be
cultivated with ideals for supporting others
with respect. Putting this into practice may
seem daunting, but its not impossible and
over time could be valuable for our future.
Humanity has always been burdened with
a good percentage of bad guys. But, all in
all, the ideals that the majority of us value
and strive to promote, life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness, are shared in our core.
Going back to Gladstones quote, I see
the vast majority of the families we serve at
deeply committed to doing the right thing
for their loved ones. They come to us with a
desire for closure and to enact final tributes
for those theyve cherished. Whether public
or private their feelings are similar, and
showing one last bit of proper care is their
goal. For me this is a sign of hope, showing
that overall we are a society of good people
with a nature to live in harmony and peace.

Col. Saadi Soruchi said of the

The Kurdish forces trying to
defend frontline towns like
Makhmour in their autonomous
region of northern Iraq have felt
the brunt of the Islamic extremist
fighters attacks and know how
ferocious they are. The militants
are bristling with American
weapons and armored Humvees
looted from Iraqi arsenals, giving
them a powerful edge.
After Washingtons promises to
arm them, the Kurds say they
badly need heavier weapons from
the United States to stem the
expansion of the Islamic State
The Kurdish fighters, also
known as peshmerga, say they

weaponry, even though U.S. of-

BAGHDAD The United
Nations on Wednesday called its
highest level of emergency for
the humanitarian crisis in Iraq,
where hundreds of thousands have
been driven from their homes and
tens of thousands have been
trapped in a desert mountain by
the advance of Islamic militants
across the north of the country.
The declaration of a Level 3
Emergency will trigger trigger
additional goods, funds and
assets to respond to the needs of
those displaced, said U.N. special
representative Nickolay
Mladenov, who pointed to the
scale and complexity of the cur-
rent humanitarian catastrophe.
Since June, Iraq has been fac-
ing an onslaught by the Islamic
State group and allied Sunni mili-
tants across much of the coun-
trys north and west. In recent
weeks, the crisis has worsened as
the militant ghters swept over
new towns in the north, displac-
ing members of the minority
Christian and Yazidi religious
communities, and threatening the
neighboring Iraqi Kurdish auton-
omy zone.
Tens of thousands of Yazidis
ed the advance to take refuge in
the remote desert Sinjar mountain
range, becom-
ing trapped for
days without
food or water.
The U.S. and
Iraqi military
have dropped
food and water
supplies into
the moun-
tains, and in
recent days
Kurds from neighboring Syria
battled to open a corridor to the
mountain, allowing some 45,000
to escape.
Mladenov said tens of thou-
sands of people are reportedly
still trapped on Sinjar Mountain
with health conditions quickly
deteriorating. The White House
said Wednesday it is considering
a range of military options to res-
cue them, including airlifts and
creating safe passages.
The U.N. said it would provide
increased support to those who
have escaped Sinjar and to
400,000 other Iraqis who have
fled since June to the Kurdish
province of Dahuk, the U.N. said.
Others have ed to other parts of
the Kurdish region or further
south. Atotal of 1.5 million have
been displaced by the ghting
since the insurgents captured
Iraqs second-largest city, Mosul,
in June and quickly swept over
other parts of the country.

n the United States, every job lost
numerically during the recession
that peaked in 2007 has been
replaced, but according to an analysis
released Monday these new jobs pay an
average of 23 percent less than before they
were lost.
What has comprised of the middle class,
or wage earners generally making between
$15 an hour on the low end and $30 an
hour on the upper end, is growing at the
slower, almost fractional rate. In
California, middle wage-earning jobs and
job creation have all but come to a stand-
In California, the erosion of the middle
class is the worst in the nation, which is
revealed in part by the faster-paced
employment growth in the state, which is
made up of high-wage growth through cor-
porate consolidation and bonuses and
explosive growth in the low-end jobs
between minimum wage and $14 an hour.
Those jobs are mainly in customer service,
hospitality and low-end health care.
The problem is more pronounced in our
state than any other, not just causing a
wealth and money-earning imbalance, but
setting up a system that may ultimately
effect the growth of the economy in the
state, affecting housing markets, consumer
condence and the gradual slip of a former
middle class that sinks into the class of the
working poor.
Its almost as if what is happening in
California isnt really happening in
California. By that we mean, the jobs
growth, the economic rebound, they are
missing the component that will see a sys-
tem-wide economic recovery be stable and
long-lasting the strengthening and rise
of the middle class.
Various reports related to this fact have
begun to emerge ever since the Census
Bureau released numbers earlier this month
showing the widening chasm between the
highest-paid and the lowest-paid in
This state has seen some of the best
strides in the country in terms of the hous-
ing market returning, for instance, but as
prices climb the people who can afford to
buy will ultimately tap out as middle-class
purchasers of single-family homes shrink
in numbers.
It is a dangerous predicament to be in in
California. At some point, it begins to
appear that the growth in this state is hap-
pening on a wobbly foundation.
Unfortunately there does not appear to be
an immediate solution. Job creation, an
economy on the mend, not just in
California but in the nation, has required
the bar to be moved. Consolidation,
automation in middle-level positions and
lowering pay that was substantially higher
before the layoffs occurred were part of the
path to improve our outlook.
Where this goes from here will be inter-
esting, and potentially painful for hundreds
of thousands of families who sink further
toward poverty. We hope solutions are on
the way, that a reliable middle-wage sector
emerges for all of the nations workers.
Democrats No Border policy
Asovereign country has a right/duty to
protect its national border from invading
foreigners. America was founded by legal
immigrants, not illegal immigrants. No for-
eigner from England, Russia, South Africa
or even Mexico has a right to illegally
enter a sovereign or to demand free drivers
licenses, college money, health care, educa-
tion, etc.
Eighty-two percent of illegals entering
America are from Mexico. There are bad
effects of illegal immigration, including
gangs, crime, drugs and the drain of city-
state-federal taxpayer dollars. Millions of
American-born war veterans, the poor, the
homeless and foster children still need tax-
payer funded services.
Democrats promise an open no border
policy with free taxpayer-provided servic-
es to Mexicans/Hispanic advocacy groups
in return for a promise to continue voting
Democrat at state/national elections.
Republicans and Independents cannot com-
pete with Democrats willingly selling out
the soul of America just for Democrats self-
ish goals for power. Encouraging illegals to
jump ahead of patiently-waiting immigrants
who follow Americas legal immigration
rules is like giving free Starbucks
coffee/food to the jerk cutting ahead of
everyone waiting in line its not right and
sends the message that Democrats selective-
ly follow laws they want and disregard oth-

High-tech companies in Millbrae
Im a resident of Millbrae, and have com-
muted via Caltrain for the past 10 years to
six different startups. Millbrae is ideally
located as a high-tech hub: It is the only
city accessible from both Caltrain and
BART, which makes it ideal for thousands
of high-tech workers between San
Francisco and Silicon Valley, as well as for
out-of-town clients from SFO. Its also
conveniently located near downtown
Broadway and El Camino Real with dozens
of great dining options. All of the startups
Ive worked for have weighted these attrib-
utes highly when deciding on ofce space,
and I believe Millbrae could demand a pre-
mium over almost any other city, including
Mountain View and Palo Alto. It is an ideal
tech gateway between San Francisco and
Silicon Valley.
If managed properly, building out more
Class Aofce space will bring in tax rev-
enue, and bring highly paid employees
into Millbrae, stimulating the economy.
Im all for a mixed-use space for the new
Millbrae Station Area, but I believe even
the current maximum proposal for 1.5 mil-
lion square feet of ofce and research and
development space is not sufcient.
For example, a single company in Santa
Clara County is currently building a brand
new two-million-square-foot campus.
Millbrae is grossly under-represented
regarding high-tech I cannot think of a
single high-tech company headquartered
If we fail to prioritize high-tech develop-
ment, I believe were wasting an opportu-
nity very unique to Millbrae, which is liter-
ally the link between one of the most desir-
able large cities and the most innovative
high-tech hub in the world. Thanks for
your consideration.

Robin Williams
The death of Robin Williams has affected
billions. Was that your intention, I would
ask you. That after you accomplished every-
thing there is to accomplish in the humor
eld you now want to direct all thoughts to
fate and what people do with the purpose of
life. To the gift of being alive, to dealing
with what is hard to deal with. To deal with
what is easy but never done.
In our family, you have accomplished
marvelous things with humor and now with
dealing with our fate. Our family is talking
again. Everybody with everybody.
Arguments turned into discussions and the
underlying dormant existence of love and
appreciation is sprouting and forming
unbelievable roots.
Thank you Robin Williams.

Middle-wage jobs disappearing
Other voices
Face time
ace it the biggest tourist draw in
San Mateo County is no longer
Filoli or vast expanses of nature or
even that beer garden where the prototype
iPhone was nabbed a few years back.
Instead, the curious are ocking to take pic-
tures outside Facebook.
Saw this new phenomenon myself this
week. Perhaps its been going on ever since
Zuck and company set up shop in Menlo
Park but, with few occasions to cross the
Dumbarton Bridge, I rarely pass by the com-
panys campus. But in any case, the pilgrim-
ages were news to me until I saw it with my
own two eyes.
Stuck in traf-
c just outside
the entrance, I
spotted a young
girl in her best
Taylor Swift-
esque summer
dress sitting
atop the sign
proclaiming 1
Hacker Way.
Her ankles were
crossed, her
smile sweet. A
few feet away a
woman her mother, one assumes
snapped away with a camera.
Rounding the bend, a gaggle of hoodie-
wearing teenage girls giving off a tourist
vibe crouched in front of the bigger
Facebook sign with its easily recognizable
thumbs-up image. They giggled and made
sure not to block the graphic appendage as
they squished close together. Snapping their
photo were two grown men in orange safety
vests. Parked on the side of the road was a
white SUVand a tow truck, all of which
makes one wonder if the teenage fangirls had
broken down heading to IKEAor the
Bayshore and opted for a souvenir picture
before departing. Or, perhaps the roadside
assistance crew was also out for a snapshot
the same time as the girls. Fandom knows
no age. One will never know.
But what I do know is that it is awfully
weird to think the Facebook headquarters
buildings and signs are the newest county
hot spot. Its not as though the ofces are
the easiest place to reach or located really on
the way to anything.
Do visitors think they might run into
Mark Zuckerberg or doppleganger Jesse
Eisenberger? Maybe they hope to slip inside
the massive complex. Or perhaps they just
want a rst-hand glance at where all the
online magic happens, making it possible
for them to post real-time updates on soda
runs and romantic status?
Maybe taking photos at any landmarks is
strange to some but were not talking about
a vision of beauty and wonder here. No
offense to the Facebook architects but they
are just buildings. Its not as if they are the
garage where Hewlett and Packard created
their rst computer. Then again, Haight and
Ashbury are just street signs.
Facebook is not the rst building to draw
visitors and it wont be the last. Crime buffs
take walking tours of infamous scenes.
Music fans want to walk where Janis Joplin
swigged her Southern Comfort or the
Grateful Dead held court. Even this journalist
made a point to visit Tribune Tower in
Chicago although that was more for the his-
torical artifacts embedded in the wall than its
former newspaper inhabitant.
On the tech front, Apple undoubtedly
draws Steve Jobs wannabes to Cupertino and
it wouldnt be surprising to nd people lin-
gering outside Twitter or Google (although
those might be folks hoping to snag one of
those snazzy and perk-lled internships).
So maybe Facebooks photo-happy users
making a pit stop isnt so odd. It is the
social network, after all. And, not being on
Facebook, perhaps it is not my place to
judge. However, to steal a phrase forever
linked to the company, I dont have to like

NEWYORK Amodest gain for the
stock market on Wednesday tugged the
Dow Jones industrial average back
into the black for the year as investors
set aside concerns about Ukraine, Iraq
and earnings, at least for a day.
Amazon led the gains in light trad-
ing, despite a mixed batch of econom-
ic and corporate news. The gains were
broad but thin. Three companies rose
for every one that fell on the New York
Stock Exchange, and all 10 sectors in
the S&P 500 ended higher.
This is a very resilient market,
said Uri Landesman, president of
Platinum Partners, a hedge fund in New
Markets have turned choppy in
recent weeks as investors have
weighed a host of concerns. At times,
worries over global conflicts and
Europes economy have overshadowed
signs of steady growth in the U.S.
economy and rising corporate prot s.
Landesman pointed to plenty of rea-
sons for traders to ditch stocks this
summer, including high prices.
Were getting through the summer
and the market is still pretty close to
its high, he said. It shows you the
trend is still upward.
Amazon, the online retail giant,
unveiled a new payment system for
mobile phones. The device, called
Amazon Local Register, is aimed at
helping small businesses accept pay-
ments through smartphones and
tablets. Amazons stock gained $6.96,
or 2 percent, to $326.28.
The S&P 500 rose 12.97 points, or
0.7 percent, to end at 1,946.72. The
Dow gained 91.26 points, or 0.6 per-
cent, to 16,651.80, the rst time in
August that the 30-stock average has
been in positive territory for the year.
The tech-heavy Nasdaq composite
climbed 44.87 points, or 1 percent, to
Of the handful of companies report-
ing quarterly results on Wednesday, a
few well-known names warned of slid-
ing sales and shrinking profits.
Macys turned in results that fell short
of Wall Streets forecasts. The depart-
ment store chain also cut its full-year
outlook for sales, saying it couldnt
make up from a shortfall at the start of
the year when winter storms kept
shoppers at home. The companys
stock dropped $3.29, or 6 percent, to
Deere & Co., the countrys largest
maker of farm equipment, said weak
sales will likely cut into its earnings
for the entire year. Deere dropped
$1.99, or 2 percent, to $84.49.
King Digital Entertainment, maker
of the Candy Crush Saga video
game, plunged 23 percent. The compa-
ny reported second-quarter sales that
came up short of estimates and also cut
its full-year earnings forecast. Kings
stock lost $4.21 to $13.99.
Despite some high-prole misses,
however, overall corporate results for
the second quarter have looked solid.
With the earnings season drawing to a
close, seven out of 10 companies in
the S&P 500 have posted stronger
prots than analysts projected, accord-
ing to S&P Capital IQ. Quarterly earn-
ings are on track to climb 10 percent
over the year before. Thats much better
than the 3 percent increase companies
reported for the rst quarter of 2014.
The Commerce Department said
Wednesday that retail sales edged up by
a tiny amount compared with the prior
month. A separate report said busi-
nesses continued adding to their stock-
piles in June. A greater amount of
goods on store shelves and in ware-
houses reects optimism about future
In other trading, Germanys DAX
gained 1.4 percent, while Frances
CAC 40 rose 0.8 percent. Britains
FTSE 100 inched up 0.4 percent. All
three indexes have slumped more than
1 percent this month.
In the U.S. government bond mar-
ket, the yield on the 10-year Treasury
note was 2.42 percent, just shy of its
low for the year and a drop from 2.45
percent late Tuesday.
Indexes higher; Amazon gains, Macys drops

WASHINGTON U.S. retail sales were
essentially at in July, providing evidence
that consumers have yet to shed their doubts
about the economy despite recent job gains.
The Commerce Department said
Wednesday that seasonally adjusted retail
sales were unchanged in July compared with
the prior month. Total sales rose a statisti-
cally insignificant $161 million from
$439.6 billion in June.
Spending dipped at auto dealers and
department stores last month. The losses
were offset by gains at grocery stores, gaso-
line stations, restaurants, clothiers and
building material stores.
The gures suggest that Americans are
hesitant to spend, which could limit growth
for the economy. Retail sales are closely
watched because consumer spending
accounts for 70 percent of economic activi-
t y.
Retail sales have at-lined even though
employers have added more than 200,000
jobs a month for the past six months.
Payrolls increased by 209,000 in July and
298,000 in June.
But those gains have yet to meaningfully
boost wage growth above ination, causing
spending to be more restrained.
Retail sales have increased 3.7 percent
over the past 12 months, but economists
doubt that spending can grow much faster
unless incomes increase.
Consumers just dont have the cash ow
to nance sustained gains above 4 percent,
said Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at
Pantheon Macroeconomics.
The weak sales in July mean that con-
sumer spending is off to a slow start in the
third quarter.
Consumer spending did pick up in the
April-June quarter after a sluggish showing
in the rst three months of the year. It grew
at a 2.5 percent annual pace, after increasing
just 1.2 percent in the rst quarter, which
was the weakest reading in nearly three
years. In a healthy economy spending
growth is typically 3 percent or higher.
Americans are sending mixed signals
about their willingness to spend. Consumer
condence jumped to its highest level in
nearly seven years in July, according to the
Conference Board. That suggests Americans
may be more willing to open their wallets.
And auto sales grew 9 percent in July from
a year earlier to 1.4 million, the best show-
ing for July since 2006.
But purchases of large items like autos
may be leaving many Americans with less
money to spend on discretionary items like
clothing and electronics. Rising grocery
prices may have squeezed household budgets
as well.
Aseparate measure of consumer sentiment
by the University of Michigan, released last
week, showed that condence slipped last

NEWYORK Cisco said Wednesday that
it will lay off up to 6,000 workers, or 8 per-
cent of its workforce, as part of a restructur-
i ng.
The company, which makes routers,
switches and software, said the layoffs will
affect workers in operations around the
world. The announcement was made during a
conference call discussing its scal fourth-
quarter earnings.
The San Jose, California-based company
on Wednesday reported a 1 percent decline in
prot, to $2.25 billion, as revenue dipped
to $12.36 billion from $12.42 billion. Its
adjusted earnings for the three months ended
July 26, its scal fourth quarter, came to 55
cents per share, which was two cents more
than analysts expected, according to Zacks
Investment Research.
During the conference call, Chief
Financial Ofcer Frank Calderoni said the
company estimates pretax charges of up to
$700 million, with about $250 to $350 mil-
lion recorded in the current quarter, for the
Shares fell 25 cents, or 1 percent, to
$24.95 in after-hours trading. The stock has
risen 12 percent this year.

NEW YORK Amazon is taking direct
aim at mobile payment systems such as
Square by introducing the Amazon Local
Register, a credit-card processing device and
mobile app designed to help small business
owners accept payments through their
smartphones and tablets.
The move places the largest U.S. e-com-
merce retailer in competition with Square
and other established mobile payment pro-
cessing systems such as PayPal Here and
Intuits GoPayment.
Amazons technology includes a card read-
er that attaches to a smartphone, Kindle or
tablet. The reader processes credit or debit
card payments via a secure Amazon network,
the same one that processes Amazon.com
purchases. The service is designed to serve
on-the-go small business owners who
might otherwise only accept cash or
checks, including massage therapists, food
truck operators and artists who sell their
work at outdoor fairs.
Small businesses can start using Local
Register by creating an account on

WASHINGTON Faced with tougher and
more resistant weeds, corn and soybean
farmers are anxiously awaiting government
decisions on a new version of a popular her-
bicide and on genetically modied seeds
to grow crops designed to resist it.
Critics say more study is needed on the
effects of the herbicide and they are con-
cerned it could endanger public health.
The Environmental Protection Agency is
expected to rule this fall on Dow
AgroSciences application to market Enlist,
a new version of the 2,4-D herbicide thats
been around since the 1940s. Its partly a
game of catch-up for the agriculture indus-
try, as many farmers are dealing with weeds
that have become resistant to glyphosate,
an herbicide commonly used on corn and
soybeans now.
If approved, the 2,4-D would be used in
combination with glyphosate.
An Agriculture Department decision on
the companys genetically modied seeds
also is expected this fall. In the depart-
ments nal environmental review released
last week, the USDA recommended
approval. The agency said that if both the
seeds and herbicide are approved, the use of
2,4-D could increase by an estimated 200 to
600 percent by the year 2020.

STANFORD Fresh off an exciting sum-
mer of World Cup soccer, the Stanford mens
soccer team convened its rst ofcial prac-
tice of the season Wednesday.
The World Cup experience was an especially
exciting one for Stanford, as the U.S. Mens
National Team trained on campus for two
weeks leading up to its departure for Brazil.
Stanford third-year head coach Jeremy
Gunn is a lifelong soccer acionado, who
grew up in Leeds, England watching now-
Argentina head coach
Alex Sabella play for his
hometown team, Leeds
United. And Gunns boy-
ish excitement about
Stanford hosting the U.S.
team, and about the entire
World Cup season, was
sincere and palpable.
I think everybody gets
inspired by the World
Cup, Gunn said. Its so exciting as a fan,
but its intriguing as a coach because you get
to see what all the best in the world are doing
on the biggest stage in the world. We had
a massive added interest this year because we
watched [the U.S.] go through their pre-tour-
nament camp. We got to see them preparing.
Were all fans of the U.S. anyway. Were
even bigger vested interests when youve
been watching them rst hand.
The air surrounding the Stanford mens
team is chock with excitement as well. In
two previous seasons at the helm, Gunn has
quickly brought the program back to promi-
nence as a contender for a national champi-
onship. After the Cardinal nished with los-
ing records in two consecutive seasons prior
to Gunn taking over, the former Cal State
Bakersfield standout turned the program
around in a hurry. In 2012, Stanford nished
with a 9-8-1 record then improved last sea-
son with a 10-7-4 mark and a postseason
march into the third round of the NCAA
Division I Tournament.
Considering Gunns resume though, the
winning ways should come as no surprise.
After moving to the U.S. at age 18 to play
on scholarship at Bakerseld, he returned to
the school as an assistant coach under
Stanford determined as first practice convenes
he Peninsula is becoming a hot
bed for combat sports, specical-
ly boxing. There are a number of
cards coming up in the next couple weeks
that will feature some of the best ghters
San Mateo County has to offer.
In addition, another well-known ama-
teur will be turning pro and is just wait-
ing on a date and an opponent.
Yohan Banks, a heavyweight out of
San Mateos
Westside Boxing
Club, will take on
28-1 Travis
Kauffman, who has
20 knockouts, in a
non-title ght on the
undercard of the
Austin Trout-Daniel
Dawson light mid-
dleweight bout on
ESPNs Friday Night
Fights series Aug. 22
at Pechanga Resort & Casino in
The match is a huge opportunity for the
6-3, 285, 29-year-old Banks, who sports
a losing overall record (7-8, 5 KOs), but
is coming off back-to-back stoppages
against Bomani Parker in July 2013 and
Tim Puller last September.
(Kauffman is a) great opportunity to
see where were at, said Pat Ragan,
Banks trainer and manager, who has
been working with him for the last cou-
ple years. (And) a guy like Kauffman
needs to face a guy like Yohan.
Kauffman is ranked No. 16 in the
heavyweight division in the United
States and Ragan said his promoters are
grooming him for big things.
Theyre throwing a lot of money into
development for [Kauffman], Ragan
Ragan believes Banks heavy hands
makes him just dangerous enough that
Kauffman will need to tread carefully.
[Banks is] on the cusp of making
some noise, Ragan said. Hes extreme-
ly powerful. Hes a big, powerful man.
While Ragan said he only signed the
contract Aug. 8, he was fairly certain
Banks would get the shot at Kauffman.
I knew they were kicking the tires (on
Banks). Ive been around long enough to
know if theyre (the promoters and match
makers) are serious, Ragan said. This is
a very big promotion (Goossen-Tutor
Promotions). They are believing in
[Banks to put on a good show].
Always known to put on a good show,
longtime amateur Casey Morton should
know in the next couple of weeks who
and where she will make her pro debut.
Morton said her transition was put on
hold for a while as she looked to put
together her team of boxing and strength
training coaches. She nally hooked up
with Jairo Escobar out of San Francisco
County fighters

SAN FRANCISCO Depending on the
clubhouse, the response to the latest over-
turned call at home under baseballs expand-
ed replay system was as debatable as the rule
The Giants scored seven runs in the sev-
enth inning after the replay ofcial over-
turned an out call at home because they said
Chicago catcher Tyler Flowers illegally
blocked Gregor Blancos path to the plate,
and San Francisco went on to beat the White
Sox 7-1 on Wednesday.
Well take it, Giants manager Bruce
Bochy said.
With one out in the inning, rst baseman
Jose Abreu elded Joe Paniks broken-bat
grounder to throw out Blanco by at least six
feet. Bochy challenged the play, and
umpires ruled Flowers left leg was illegally
blocking the plate before the ball arrived.
White Sox manager Robin Ventura argued
the call and was immediately ejected, set-
ting off an epic protest in which he repeat-
edly kicked dirt on the plate.
If you look at the spirit of the rule of
what they are trying to do and what its actu-
ally doing its a joke, said Ventura, who
unsuccessfully challenged a similar call at
the plate in Chicagos 3-2 win Tuesday
night in San Francisco. They dont take
into consideration that the guy was out by a

streak as Jake Peavy (1-3) won for the rst

Burlingames Jonathan Engelmann is
Division I bound.
Monday, on the eve of the rst day of school
of his senior year, Engelmann verbally com-
mitted to play at the University of Michigan on
a partial baseball scholarship.
Aformer inelder who converted to a corner
outeld spot for the Panthers as a junior last
season, Engelmann will compete for an outeld
job for the Wolverines. With current Michigan
center elder Jackson Glines heading into his
senior year the Fresno City College transfer
hit .332 as the teams No.3 hitter this season
Engelmann is on track to eventually take
over in center eld, he said.
They offered me to play center eld for the
University of Michigan, Engelmann said.
Obviously, I have to earn my spot there from
here on out, but it was enough to get me over
there. Im very excited about their offer. It was
very generous.
Engelmann recently returned from the Area
Code Games in Long Beach. At the annual
showcase featuring 250 of the top high school
prospects in the nation, Michigan manager
Erik Bakich attended the rst three games.
Engelmann had offers on the table from three
Division I programs, including UC Santa
Barbara and UC Irvine.
Monday night though, Bakich ew into SFO
to visit the Engelmann household to make the
senior a formal offer. After enjoying a dinner of
barbecue steak kabobs prepared by
Englemanns father, Tim, Engelmann verbally
committed to the longtime Michigan baseball
program in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Everything he mentioned about the program
seemed to t my playing style, Engelmann said.
I think the aspirations I have to play beyond
college and play professional baseball, they
have a great development program for that.
Entering into its landmark 150th year of
organized baseball on campus, Michigan has
produced a handful of prestigious major lea-
guers: Jim Abbott, Mike Matheny and Hall of
Fame shortstop Barry Larkin, to name a few.
Bakich a San Jose native who starred at
Bellarmine and San Jose City College has
quite a track record for producing big-league
talent as well. Entering into his third season at
the helm of the Wolverines, Bakich previous-
ly served as a coach at Vanderbilt, where he
recruited current major leaguers David Price and
Pedro Alvarez to play for the Commodores,
according to Engelmann.
Relocating to the Detroit Tigers territory
wont change Engelmanns major league fan-
dom though.
I think my allegiances will stay in the Bay
Area as far as baseball goes. Ill forever be a
Giants fan, Engelmann said. The Tigers, with
all respect to the (Michigan) program, when we
beat them in 2012, it was a good deal.
Previous Burlingame alumni who went on
to play Division I baseball are: Damon
Lembi, Class of 1990, Arizona State;
Kaazim Summerville, 97, St. Marys ;
Anthony Granato, 99, Virginia
Commonwealth; Lucas Robinson, 99,
Marist; Taylor Vogt, 99, UC Santa Barbara;
Marc Caviglia, 01, Hawaii-Hilo; Tony
Brunicardi, 03, Sac State; Anthony
Edwards, 04, Mississippi Valley State;
Shane Arslan, 05, UCSB; Eric Fregosi, 05,
Sac State; Matt Chavez, 07, USF; D.J.

Tiger Woods removed himself from consider-
ation for the Ryder Cup team Wednesday
evening with a clear message that he is not
healthy enough to play.
One day after U.S. captain Tom Watson said
he trusted Woods to give him the straight
skinny on the condition of his back injury and
his game, Woods said he called the 64-year-old
captain to say he would not be available.
The decision spares Watson from having to
leave Woods off the team, and it eliminates a
distraction over the next three weeks before
Watson announces his three captains picks for
the Sept. 26-28 matches against Europe at
I have already spoken to Tom about the
Ryder Cup, and while I greatly appreciate his
thinking about me for a possible captains
pick, I took myself out of consideration,
Woods said in a statement on his website. The
U.S. team and the Ryder Cup mean too much to
me not to be able to give it my best.
That he was even under consideration was
mildly surprising.
Woodsbest nish this year was a tie for 25th
because of nagging back issues at the start of
the year that led him to have surgery on March
31. He missed two majors, including the
Masters for the rst time, and did not return for
three months. In the four events he played upon
his return, he missed the cut twice, withdrew
during the nal round at Firestone and nished
69th in the British Open for his worst 72-hole
result in a major.
My primary wish is for Tiger to be healthy
and competitive, and I hope that hell return to
the game very soon, Watson said in a state-
ment released by the PGA of America. Of
course, Im disappointed that Tiger Woods has
asked not to be considered for the U.S. Ryder
Cup team, and that his health is not where he
would like it to be. However, I think we can all
agree that we need Tiger Woods in this great
sport, and he has taken the high road by
informing me early on in the selection process.
My focus will remain on identifying three
players to join the U.S. team and give us the
best chance for success at Gleneagles.
Woods said his recent back trouble was not
related to the impinged nerve that led to surgery.
He missed the cut by ve shots at Valhalla,
and he grimaced for the nal three hours of the
second round at the PGAChampionship.

SANTACLARA After three years and six
NFL games, San Francisco nose tackle Ian
Williams nally got his rst pro start.
It lasted less than a half.
Williams earned the start on the road
against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2 last
year, the culmination of a training camp
competition with veteran Glenn Dorsey.
During the defenses second series,
Williams sustained a fractured left ankle, the
result of a cut block from Seahawks right
guard J.R. Sweezy that ended his season just
as it was getting started.
The 49ers activated Williams from the
active/physically unable to perform list on
Tuesday and he returned to limited practice
Its been a long time. Ive missed being
here, Williams said Wednesday. Im excit-
ed about being back with the guys.
Williams, who was undrafted out of Notre
Dame, will be looking to regain his stature
with the 49ers, though he
knows he will have to
remain patient through
the process.
Early in the recovery I
had some doubts, he
said. It takes time to get
that out of the way. The
training staff has put me
through rigorous work-
outs and I know I still
need to work myself back up.
San Francisco defensive coordinator Vic
Fangio said theres no reason to rush him.
Hell go through some individual drills
and then well see how it goes, Fangio
said. If its good, hell continue to do
more. If not, we can back off. The last look
we got at Ian was Game 2. He hasnt taken a
lot of regular season snaps, but last presea-
son he was playing well. Well see how
much hes back to that form.
His presence comes a few days after the
49ers allowed the Baltimore Ravens to rush
for 237 yards in their preseason opener.
That was without All-Pro defensive tackle
Justin Smith and some of the other regulars
who played sparingly.
Dorsey, who replaced Williams last year,
is out indenitely with a torn biceps. Until
Williams returns to the rotation, the 49ers
will rely on Smith, Ray McDonald and sec-
ond-years players Quinton Dial and Tank
The biggest priority is to prepare the
team for the regular season, Fangio said.
Everyone is getting a lot of reps. Guys
have to be ready to play.
Williams said his biggest challenge is to
get over the mental hurdle.
Running around, making cuts, playing
football, thats the easy part, Williams
said. As long as I feel good Im going to
push myself to see how far I can go. I know
I can do more.
Rookie linebacker Aaron Lynch, who has

OXNARD The Oakland Raiders and
Dallas Cowboys concluded their two days of
joint practices Wednesday with another
intense session that included a number of
small scrums and had both teams excited to
possibly repeat this again next season.
While the rst session Tuesday was marred
by a brawl that nearly spilled into the
stands and featured a Raiders fan swinging a
replica helmet at a Cowboys player and cor-
nerback B.W. Webb swinging back at the
fan, the action on day two was all between
the lines.
There were a handful of smaller ghts with
players from both sides taking offense to
hard hits and trash talk but nothing got out
of hand.
Today we handled it a little bit better
than we did yesterday, Cowboys receiver
Dez Bryant said. I think the intensity level
was sky high yesterday, thats why a lot of
ghts broke out. But I think today a lot of
the veteran guys on both sides of the ball
did a great job of handling all the potential
ghts. We did a good job today.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett called the
rst day of the practices the most electric
atmosphere he had ever seen on a practice
eld. He said the two days of work were
invaluable because of the chance to try dif-
ferent schemes and different techniques that
will likely come up again during the season.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he
believes the intensity from these past two
days will translate to the eld on Friday
night when Oakland hosts Detroit in an
exhibition game.
Anytime you get into this competitive
environment, it creates a sense of urgency
with your football team, Allen said. We
got better over these last couple days.
There was an increased police presence
Wednesday, with extra ofcers near the side-
line with Raiders fans where the incident
with Webb happened the previous day.
Garrett said he talked with Webb about
how he handled the situation and said no
punishment would be needed.
At some point you have to as a player
defend your teammate, get yourself in there
and make sure hes going to be OK, Garrett
said. Always have your guys back. Thats
an important part of building a football
team. At the same time poise in that situa-
tion is important. I felt we demonstrated
both and you kind of move on.
Former Raiders linebacker Rolando
McClain almost got into it with his former
teammates after tackling Darren McFadden.
McClain, Oaklands first-round pick in
2010, never lived up to expectations with
the Raiders. He clashed with Allen and was
suspended for two games for conduct detri-
mental to the team in 2012. The Raiders
released him in April 2013 and he stepped
away from football for a season before join-
ing the Cowboys this offseason.
McClain said there was no ill will toward
the Raiders and he had pleasant exchanges
with some former teammates, Allen and
defensive coordinator Jason Tarver.
I had three years there, it is what it is,
McClain said. I made some great relation-
ships, I still have those relationships, and
Im proud of it. Thats what you do. You live
and learn. I wish them nothing but the
The one big negative from the two days of
practice for the Raiders was a serious left
knee injury to tight end Nick Kasa. Kasa got
hurt during a drill Tuesday and the initial
diagnosis is a torn ACL, which would end
his season.
Kasa is the second Oakland tight end with
an injured left knee, joining David
Ausberry. That leaves Mychal Rivera as the
only healthy tight end on the roster who
has ever played in the NFL. Ausberry was
walking around this week with a wrap on his
left knee after having surgery. His return
date is undetermined.
NOTES: Raiders CB Chimdi Chekwa
(knee) returned after missing practice
Tuesday but was unable to make it through
the whole session. ... Oakland WR Juron
Criner sat out with a lower-body injury.

Simon Tobin, and captured a Division II
national championship in 1997.
Gunn took his rst head coaching posi-
tion at Colorados Fort Lewis College and in
2005 and celebrated another Division II
championship in the midst of an undefeated
season. In 2007, he took his rst Division I
post at the University of Charlotte, reaching
the NCAATournament title game in his nal
year of 2011, only to fall 1-0 to national
champion North Carolina.
Ive had quite a fortunate career winning
championships at two of the places, and then
losing in the nal at the third place, Gunn
said. So, the plan here would be to keep mov-
ing forward with those things.
Poised to once again contribute to the
Cardinals goal of moving forward is
defenseman Matt Taylor. Taylor, a fth-year
senior, is one of the most tenured veterans
on the team. And along with true freshman
Danya Kafai, Taylor is one of two Redwood
City natives on the roster.
Taylor has taken quite the circuitous route
to arrive on the Stanford soccer pitch after
sustaining a serious injury his senior year of
high school at Bellarmine. Following
Taylors epic junior season of 2009, in
which he was named West Catholic Athletic
League Defensive Player of the Year as the
Bells won their second consecutive Central
Coast Section crown, the marquee defense-
man suffered a broken leg against Serra at the
midway point of the season.
The injury cost Taylor his true freshman
season. Then after re-breaking the leg toward
the end of his freshman year, he was slowed
through the 2011 and 12 seasons before
nally emerging a starting defenseman last
season. After starting his redshirt junior sea-
son on the bench, Taylor earned his rst start
in September of last year and has been in the
lineup without fail ever since.
Hes worked his way forward, Gunn
said. Last year, he had a tremendous season.
He worked extremely hard to keep improv-
ing. He really became a very reliable central
defender who was just absolutely fearless.
Taylors breakout season culminated in a
heroic game-winning goal in Stanfords
final win of the year during the NCAA
Tournament. It was a profound accomplish-
ment after wondering along his path to
recovery if he would ever play again.
Thats always in your head, but you have
to imagine (heroic) stuff like that to push
you to keep going, Taylor said. That stuff
really helped me, knowing what I could do
and what I can do.
After winning their postseason opener,
the Cardinal traveled to Cal State
Northridge, where Taylors imaginings
became reality. Stanford won a thrilling 1-0
match against the Big West champs. And it
was Taylor who notched the decisive score.
Northridge midelder Yarden Azulay had
been giving Stanford ts throughout the rst
half. The Cardinal shored up on defense, but
got a chance late in the half with a free kick
from Aaron Kovar. The midelders kick
sailed over the intended target, J.J. Kaval.
But Taylor was trailing the play and left his
feet to get full extension on a diving header
to score the goal.
The victory would stand as the Cardinals
nal win of the year as they were summarily
defeated 1-0 by the University of
Washington on a heartbreaking goal in the
85th minute in the Field of 16 matchup.
It was a very exciting knockout game of
soccer, Gunn said. It was very close. There
werent too many chances in the game. We
created some chances and just couldnt quite
capitalize; and they managed to score a goal
off a throw-in that won it for them.
Entering into this season, Stanford is
ranked No. 20 in the nation. By the num-
bers, that makes for an uphill climb for the
Cardinal with three Pac-12 team ranked
ahead of them. No. 4 ranked UCLA, No. 6
Washington and No. 7 Cal are all looking to
improve on spectacular years as well.
The closer you get to the top, the steeper
the ascent, Gunn said. So, it will be very
tough to improve on last years nal posi-
tion. But its something that were capable
of doing, and so its something were going
to try to achieve. We want to be able to win
the Pac-12, we want to be able to get into the
national tournament, and we want to play as
many games as we can once were in the tour-
Stanfords season kicks off Aug. 29 at
Nebraskas Creighton University.

Peavy even changed his uniform
number from 43 to 22, which he
wore for his high school in
Mobile, Alabama. He wore 44 with
the San Diego Padres, White Sox
and Boston Red Sox.
Perhaps the new look changed
his luck.
San Francisco took advantage of
the new rule, 7.13, that prohibits
catchers from blocking the plate
until possessing the ball so run-
ners dont barrel into them. The
rule gained traction after Giants
catcher Buster Poseys gruesome
injury in May 2011 ended his sea-
son blocking the same plate at
AT&T Park.
Blanco said Flowers was de-
nitely blocking the plate but
admitted its a tough call. Flowers
believes replay ofcials need to
have some exibility when they
make the decision.
Apparently they are interpret-
ing this extremely black and white
with no context, Flowers said.
The review lasted 4 minutes and
55 seconds, and umpires also
allowed Adam Duvall to advance
from rst to third. But even after
being ejected, Ventura came back
out to challenge that decision. The
play was reviewed again, and
umpires told Duvall to go back to

Its not just national monuments like

Is there grime on your siding that good old-
fashioned elbow grease wont take away?
Stains on your concrete driveway? Is the deck
looking dirty?
Power washing or pressure washing the
terms are used almost interchangeably
might be an option.
People nd it so powerful, said Ken

You can hire a pressure-washing company,

Are there risks?
Too much pressure on vinyl siding or stuc-
co can cause damage to the surface, said
Doug Rucker, owner of Clean and Green
Solutions in Kingwood, Texas, near
Houston. The same thing with concrete
Similarly, excessive pressure on a deck can
tear up the wood. When were cleaning wood
decks, were using what we call low pressure,
he said.
When youre cleaning the exterior of the
house, window and door seals need to be pro-
tected to prevent leaks. Windows could also
break if you inadvertently hit them with the
same pressure youre using for the rest of the
And, theres always the risk of working on
ladders with a machine that has recoil. Its
something where ladder safety is very impor-
tant, Collier said.
Homeowners also need to be aware of over-
head power lines.
Still, many people decide to do the work
themselves. Home supply stores offer an
array of pressure washers; prices range from
about $100 to more than $1,000.
Collier said most of the skill in using a
power washer lies in applying the right pres-
sure and tip. Its like anything else you
have to learn how the tool operates, he said.
Gas pressure washers tend to be more pow-
erful, noisier, heavier and more expensive
than electric ones. Manuals that come with
the units should explain what types of job
theyre good for.
If you decide to rent a power-washing
machine, Collier advised, Have a job in
mind, ask what tip you need and if theres an
additive that will help with the cleaning.
And dont forget the prep work. The n-
ished product is only going to be as good as
the preparation you did, said John Nearon of
Exterior Wood Restoration in Cicero,
People unaccustomed to such work might
be advised not to try it themselves, Collier
cautioned. Lots of people do it themselves,
but its also something that for most people
it would be a hire and done, he said.
Hiring a contractor to power wash a home
could cost 12 cents to up to 20 cents per
square foot, depending on the location and
surface, according to Rucker, who also pro-
vides training for power washers.
Before hiring, ask questions:
Insurance. Is the contractor insured to
cover any damage or injury that might occur
when cleaning? Dont be afraid to ask for a
copy of their insurance certicate binder,
Rucker said.
Training. Do workers get continuing
education to keep their training up to date?
The process. Talk to them about how
theyre going to clean it, what kind of
process theyre going to use, down to the
products theyre using, he said. In the
Southeast, for example, he said bleach is used
to kill mold and mildew and keep it away
Safeguarding landscape. What will they
do to protect trees, shrubs or other plants
around the house or property being cleaned?
Rucker said that wetting down plants and
keeping them watered is important. If you
cover them, he said, do it only for minutes at
a time.

iest ways to refresh any space, and
theres a ton of stylish options
out right now at a range of price
After her sophisticated sets drew
an online following, Kushnick
has created her own furnishings
line, which debuts this fall.
She says fall 2014 is about nd-
ing pieces that provide maximum
impact without a lot of effort.
Some themes this season:
Look for texture-rich acces-
sories like a box with stone
inlay or a wooden sculpture that
add an element of nature to your
space. Mix in a variety of metals
to add a sense of luxury,
Kushnick advises.
Says Los Angeles-based design-
er Trip Haenisch: Im seeing a lot
of fabrics with luxe textures this
season. Linen velvets and woven
fabrics are really in. You can
quickly and inexpensively incor-
porate texture into your space
through the use of pillows and
throws. (www.triphaenisch.com)
At fall previews, retailers were
showing soft throws shot through
with metallic threads or embroi-
dered with subtle sequins. Rose
gold is the inginue on the
metallics stage; its soft, pink-
tinged finish looks new, and
youll see it on tabletop acces-
sories, lamps, even silverware.
Warm brass continues to play a
big role, trimming tables, embed-
ded in wooden trays, formed into
curvy or linear vases and lamps. It
picks up the midcentury vibe but
suits traditional spaces too.
Chrome and acrylic hit contempo-
rary high notes.
On ceramics, youll nd reactive
and dip glazes, and more matte n-
ishes than ever before.
Mercury glass, a decor darling
for the past few seasons, gets a
few tweaks with etched patterns
and added color.
High-end lighting design has
found its way into the mid-range
market, which means pricier
styles at mass-market retailers.
Look for shades with crisp geo-
metrics, nubby textures and
crewel-work patterns to update
lamps for not much money.
Pierced metal is showing up in
many accents, including lighting.
Milky glass pendants look coun-
try-modern. Youll also nd matte-
nish shades with foil interiors
that catch light dramatically; Ikea
has table and floor lamps with
coppery lining. (www.ikea.com)
A tapered table lamp like the
Melrose from Crate & Barrel pro-
vides midcentury air. (www.crate-
andbarrel.com ) Conical, brushed-
aluminum sconces and pendants
have space-age style. And for a
luxe look, think about acrylic and
crystal lamps. (www.rejuvena-
Chandeliers get freshly inter-
preted at Restoration Hardware. A
rustic iron Foucaults orb encircles
an ornate crystal xture; tiny ball
chains veil the crystals like the
fringe on a flappers dress.
Play with color, Kushnick
There are some gorgeous grays
and subtle greens out this fall, and
2014s radiant orchid and coral add
a lush pop almost anywhere, she
says. You can make a big splash
just by updating a wall color or
bringing in a few vibrant accent
Youll also see carrot, purple,

ON CALL 24/7
consider in November, San Mateo County
legislators are satised with compromises
met in the $7.5 billion bipartisan bill.
Assemblymen Rich Gordon, D-Menlo
Park, and Kevin Mullin, D-South San
Francisco, both represented the Bay Area
on the Assemblys water bond working
group and said the diverse bill will benet
their districts.
The ongoing historic drought, our aging
water infrastructure and degraded watersheds
have all combined to present us with an
environmental and economic crisis that
needs to be addressed, Mullin said in a pre-
pared statement. While the water bond is
not perfect, nothing that is negotiated
between so many disparate interests could
State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, said
passing legislation on an issue that out-
lines the regional differences and interests
in the state was rare and rewarding.
The exciting thing is with the diverse
interests of this huge, populous state, to
come together without starting the water
wars and meeting the needs of the entire
state is unusual and its welcomed in this
With Californians from different regions
having varying needs, the overwhelming
support for the bill reects a comprehen-
sive package, Gordon said.
I think its an outstanding package for
California, it fully reects the diverse needs
of our state, Gordon said.
Within the bill, theres money that will
benet urban areas such as stormwater recy-
cling projects and for poorer communities,
there are allocations for groundwater
cleanup and water quality improvement and
there is funding for storage and watershed
restoration improvement, Gordon said.
Allocations include approximately $1.5
billion for ecosystem and watershed protec-
tion and restoration efforts, $810 million
for regional water security, climate change
and drought preparedness projects, and
$395 million for statewide ood manage-
ment projects, according to Mullins ofce.
If passed by the voters in November,
this bond will provide signicant regional
and statewide benets in terms of water sup-
ply reliability, water recycling, conserva-
tion, sustainability, flood control and
ecosystem restoration, Mullin said.
One of the more key aspects of the bill
for San Mateo County is it provides fund-
ing for the recently created Coastal
Conservancy, Mullin and Gordon said.
Over 100 million will be provided to the
Coastal Conservancy to protect coastal
watersheds and fund ecosystem restoration
including areas within San Mateo County,
Mullin said. Additionally, the Bay Area
will receive $65 million dedicated to
improve water supply self-reliance and cli-
mate change adaptation.
Gordon, the chair of the Assemblys
Select Committee on Sea Level Rise, which
recently released the Legislatures first
statewide report, said the additional funding
for the new conservancy could directly help
with the countys plans for adapting to sea
level rise.
Hill said he voted against an $11 billion
water bond proposal four years ago, and
even as this years original proposal is that
high, the Legislature narrowed it down and
it provides equal opportunities.
Hill didnt vote for the previous bond, he
said, because it was laden with special
interest entitlements that everyone tried to
extort into the bill, and thats why it got to
$11 billion. But this one is fair. It meets
the needs and the new needs of our
As overwhelmingly bipartisan legisla-
tion, Gordon said various groups will have
a chance to compete for funding and previ-
ously said this would result in the most
inuential projects being approved.
I think its a balanced package, there are
no specic projects called out in the pack-
age so it will be a competitive process for
funding from the bond, which also means
theres no pet projects in here, Gordon
said. Everybody has to compete for fund-

dissenting vote.
Gov. Jerry Brown had scheduled a signing
ceremony for later in the night to formally
put it on the ballot.
The evening votes in the Assembly and
Senate came after the Democratic governor
and lawmakers from both parties were nally
able to clear their main hurdle, a disagree-
ment about how much money should be spent
on new reservoirs and other storage projects.
A state with a population that exceeds
38 million and an agricultural industry
that feeds the nation has been struggling
to meet the increasing demands for water
after three dry winters.
The push to revamp the 2009 ballot meas-
ure, which was $11.1 billion and had been
delayed from statewide votes twice, gained
momentum as the worst drought in a genera-
tion intensied throughout the state. It has
forced farmers to fallow elds, led to double-
digit unemployment in many rural areas,
turned large expanses of reservoirs into mud
ats and prompted local governments to
mandate water-use restrictions and impose
nes for water waste.
Senate President Pro Tem Darrell
Steinberg, D-Sacramento, said water was
something many Californians had previous-
ly taken for granted.
The need is so great in California, he
said, referring to the wide margin of support
the spending measure enjoyed in the
Legislature. The time is now.
The relatively swift and overwhelming
votes for passage in both house of the
Legislature were in contrast to the weeks of
difcult negotiations to replace the existing
and more costly water bond that already was
on the November ballot.
Brown wanted a much smaller bond to
attract voters and minimize state debt, while
many Democratic lawmakers fought against
money for reservoirs and sought strong envi-
ronmental protections for the Sacramento-
San Joaquin River Delta.
The proposal approved Wednesday
includes $2.7 billion dedicated to storage
projects, which likely would include a new
reservoir in what is now a bucolic agricultur-
al valley in Colusa County north of
Sacramento and another in the Sierra Nevada
northeast of Fresno.
That amount is more than Democrats and
the governor had proposed for new reservoirs
but less than the $3 billion included in the
old ballot measure, which was approved by a
previous Legislature in 2009.
The breakthrough on water storage was
hailed by Republican lawmakers, who saw it
as a top priority. Democratic lawmakers who
represent agricultural areas in the Central
Valley also pushed for the reservoir funding.
This now offers us an opportunity to guar-
antee the future, said Sen. Jim Nielsen, a
Republican who represents a largely agricul-
tural region in Northern California that will
be home to one of the proposed reservoirs.
This is not about us and not about the next
election; its about our grandchildren.
Numerous agricultural, environmental and
business groups quickly endorsed the leg-
islative compromise. The plan includes $7.1
billion in new borrowing and $400 million
from previous bonds that would be redirected
to the updated water priorities. Redirecting
that money requires voter approval.
Provisions in the latest bond proposal
involving water recycling and cleanup of
contaminated groundwater could increase the
availability of water during future droughts.
The bond also includes other water projects
not directly related to supply, such as water-
shed improvements and ood management.

Outstanding Quality
By Kim Cook
For college kids who move off-
campus, learning to accommo-
date the styles and needs of
housemates is good practice for
life after school.
Take Erica Weidrick and Caitrin
Curtis, upperclassmen at the
University of North Carolina,
who are moving into a new town
house with a third friend. While
theyd all been living together
for a year already in a dorm, they
wanted some organization and
style help with this new arrange-
Here are some typical problem
areas, with advice from two
designers on how to solve them:
We all come in and just drop
our stuff in a pile, and sometimes
mail gets lost or keys disap-
pear usually when were late,
says Weidrick.
Veronica Valencia, a Los
Angeles-based designer and styl-
ist, suggests setting up a bin for
each housemate, and not allow-
ing any overflow.
Its true, we hit the front door
and everything weve been haul-
ing all day falls to the floor,
says Valencia, who blogs at
If it doesnt fit in the bin, you
have to put it away immediate-
l y, she says. I love fabric bins
or wood crates. If you have an
entry table, consider fabric
wrapped magazine boxes, one
for each person.
Weidrick and Curtis also liked
a wall shelf with hooks and
small baskets for keys and mail.
The living room is a chal-
lenge because thats where we
spend most of our time, so its
where most of our junk ends up.
Its hard to keep a shared space
organized when everyone is
coming and going at different
times, Curtis says.
What they need is stylish stor-
age where the clutter can hide
when company comes.
Valencias fix: Two words:
storage ottomans!
Consider an ottoman in faux
leather or suede, with a flip-top
tray that can be used as a resting
place for TV remotes, phones
and snack dishes. Clutter can be
scooped inside when the need
arises, and, voila! The ottoman
provides extra seating.
M Elodie Froment, PB Teens
vice president for product devel-
opment, suggests using a pair of
trunks. Theyre great because
you can store extra blankets and
other essentials.
Trunks come in a variety of
finishes that can appeal to guys
and girls.
We all want our shared space
to be warm and relaxed, like our
bedrooms, says Curtis. But the
living room and kitchen are sup-
posed to be social spots, and its
nice to be able to change the
atmosphere from just chilling
to hosting a party.
Valencias answer is to think
in terms of moveable and modu-
lar. Add floor pillows so your
coffee table can accommodate a
study group, and poufs for extra
seating on movie night.
She suggests sharing Pinterest
inspirations and finding styles
and patterns that all the house-
mates can live with. Your own
rooms where youll be able to
put your personal stamp.
For common areas, Froment
says, Pick a neutral color
scheme for the larger furniture
items, and add splashes of per-
sonality with decorative pil-
lows, art and dicor. If youre not
planning on painting your
walls, identify one to decorate
with removable wall paper or
If floors are bare, add a rugged
nylon rug in a bold geometric or
floral. If you cant afford or agree
on artwork, the rugs bring pat-
tern to the floor and give rooms
a finished feel thats a little more
Weidrick and Curtis like ambi-
ent lighting that will turn down
the stresses of school.
Froment suggests a fun floor
lamp, perhaps pairing it with a
playful wall light. Accent with
string lights for a soft glow,
she says.
In bedrooms, Valencia follows
the 3H rule of organi zi ng:
hamper, hooks and a hanging
closet organizer.

them up, said Public Works
Superintendent Mike McElligottt. The
quality of the water was safe, however,
it did show it was depleted of more
oxygen than usual, McElligottt said.
Although the event was unusual for
Foster City and hasnt happened in at
least the 10 years McElligottt said
hes worked for the city, there is a bio-
logical explanation for it.
This particular incident has not
happened. But we have had sh die off
about ve or six years ago due to a red
tide, McElligottt said. We tested
(the lagoon) for dissolved oxygen, it
was low in those areas and I didnt
realize what was going on until I
called the National Marine Fisheries
Sometimes anchovies school so
close together or get stuck in a narrow
water body that over a period of time
they deplete the water of oxygen and
consequentially suffocate, said Steve
Miller, administrative ofcer for the
Fisheries Ecology division in Santa
Cruz, a sub-branch of the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Incidents such as this are uncom-
mon, but the Santa Cruz Harbor expe-
rienced a similar and larger anchovy
event when millions died around July
31, Miller said. The harbor is narrow
and increased sightings of whales and
seagulls can be an indicator that
anchovies are nearby, Miller said.
The anchovies had been along the
coast for several months and thats
what brought the whales in and theres
been huge swarms of seagulls, Miller
said. It probably took a week for
them (anchovies) to accumulate, then
they get trapped and then the water
gets inhaled and goes through their
gills. And thats what gills do, it l-
ters oxygen out of the water so they
basically suffocate.
McElligott said the city wasnt
aware that there were specifically
anchovies in the lagoon and it can be
hard to tell.
We dont do a check to see what
kind of sh are in there, but since we
let water in from the Bay, we dont
know what sea creatures are getting
in, McElligott said. With the water
the way it is, its murky because its
brackish like the Bay. Also, we dye
the lagoon a blue color and the reason
for dying it is not just to have it look
pretty, its to prevent algae and sub-
surface grass from growing so we
dont have to kill it with chemicals.
Since the anchovies appeared, the
city has cleared them from the beaches
and its likely those that hadnt
washed ashore have submerged,
McElligott said. The city has also left
labeled containers for residents to dis-
pose of any they nd on their proper-
t y. The containers will be emptied
twice daily, in the morning and after-
noon in an effort to reduce odors. Plus,
the seagulls have certainly helped out,
McElligott said.
Miller said its difcult to prevent a
natural incident such as this from
occurring, short of completely block-
ing off the water. Although anchovy
die-offs such as Santa Cruzs and
Foster Citys are uncommon, they are
showing up more than usual this year,
Miller said.
This has been a big year for
anchovies and it has to do with the
water temperature, Miller said. Its
been a warm year in the water in
Central California and thats positive
for anchovies. So were kind of in a
heavy anchovy cycle.
Anyone with questions about the
Foster City anchovy die-off can call
the citys Public Works Maintenance
Division at (650) 286-8140.

president and CEO of the San Mateo
County Economic Development
Foust points out that the cost of
business here is higher than elsewhere
as is the cost of living for workers. For
example, she said, an employee might
earn a $100,000 annual salary but rent
is $4,000 per month $48,000 year-
ly wipes away half the paycheck.
I think theres more than meets the
eye, she said.
Nationally, the average weekly wage
was $1,000 and 98 counties including
San Mateo County registered higher.
What you have is companies will-
ing to pay a premium for the type of
worker they need, Foust said, noting
that a hypothetical 20 percent to 30
percent higher wage is to make up the
difference in living expenses and
because of the close proximity to key
ingredients like educational hubs, tal-
ent and angel investors.
In contrast, 70 percent of the largest
U.S. counties reported weekly wages
below the national average and wages
in the lowest ranged counties of Horry,
South Carolina, and Cameron and
Hidaldgo in Texas were less than a
quarter of the average weekly wage in
San Mateo County.
In California, the six highest pay-
ing counties were located in the Bay
Area and 12 of the 58 surpassed the
national average.
But while the county surpassed
wages among the 334 largest jurisdic-
tions, it also showed the second-
largest decline nationwide. San Mateo
Countys 15.8 percent wage drop was
second only to Douglas County in
Colorado which had a 29.7 decrease.
Foust said in her opinion those num-
bers also have to be evaluated more
closely because an across-the-board
gure is different than drops in specif-
ic industries.
Some people love data, she said.
But you cant take it in isolation.

Dental mouth guard treatsSleep Apnea and snoring
By Mohammed Daraghem
and Tia Goldenberg
CAIRO Israel and Hamas agreed to
extend a temporary cease-re for ve days,
Egyptian and Palestinian officials
announced Wednesday, permitting the sides
to continue to negotiate a substantive deal
to end the war in Gaza.
Yet even as the extension was announced
just minutes before a previous truce was set
to expire at midnight, violence spiked,
with Palestinian militants ring ve rock-
ets at Israel and Israel targeting sites across
the Gaza Strip in response. It was not clear
if the ghting was isolated or might shatter
the truce.
Egypts foreign ministry and the head of
the Palestinian negotiating team
announced the extension, which began at
midnight local time. A spokesman for
Israels prime minister had no immediate
The cease-fire extension is meant to
grant both sides additional time to nego-
tiate a longer-term truce and a roadmap for
the coastal territory.
We have agreed on a cease-re for ve
days, said Azzam al-Ahmad, the head of the
Palestinian delegation to the Cairo talks.
He noted that there had been signicant
progress but that disagreements remained
over the wording regarding security
arrangements, reconstruction efforts for the
Gaza Strip and the permissible shing area.
The lull in violence had been a welcome
reprieve for Israelis and Palestinians living
in Gaza. During the temporary cease-re,
Israel halted military operations in the war-
battered coastal territory and Gaza militants
stopped ring rockets, aside from the ones
late Wednesday.
The two sides were considering an
Egyptian proposal that partially addresses
their demands, but deep differences have
kept the deal in doubt.
Hamas is seeking an end to a crippling
blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt in
2007. The blockade has greatly limited the
movement of Palestinians in and out of the
territory of 1.8 million people. It has also
restricted the ow of goods into Gaza and
blocked virtually all exports.
Egypt: Israel, Hamas to extend temporary truce
Fatah ofcial and delegation leader Azzam al-Ahmad talks to journalists about a new
agreement to extend a truce for ve more days, outside a hotel in Cairo, Egypt.
