Cuts could mean school closure


Budget crisis causes San Bruno elementary board to take drastic measures, hope state funding saves them
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Another school in the San Bruno Park


Elementary School District faces closure,
under a series of cuts to vital services
approved by the Board of Trustees attempting to solve the financial crisis that has
long plagued the district.

The board voted 3-2 Wednesday, April 23,


to implement sharing two principals
between four schools, shuttering libraries,
trimming maintenance staff and shutting
down an unidentified school to close the
structural budget gap the district has suffered for the greater part of a decade. Board
President Kevin Martinez voted along with
trustees Henry Sanchez and Patrick Flynn to

approve the cuts, while Jennifer Blanco and


John Marinos dissented.
Officials are hoping to rescind the cuts
once the governor unveils the revised
state budget in May, which some expect
will offer more money to public schools
than has been previously anticipated.
That would allow the district financial

The cuts, slated to provide the district

Dream Machines founder Bob Senz, right, shakes hands with Rob Schneider as the men work to set up for this weekends
event at the Half Moon Bay Airport.The annual Pacific Coast Dream Machines will highlight more than 2,000 mechanical marvels
from historic airplanes to classic cars and present extreme sporting events like freestyle motocross.

Mechanical marvels on display

Residents who live on or near Holly Street contend the busy


corridor has become less safe for pedestrians after the San
Carlos City Council voted to restrict parking during the day.
Members of Greater East San Carlos, who opposed the
citys move to restripe Holly Street into four lanes of traffic
during the day, have sent city officials a list of ideas they say
will improve pedestrian safety along the corridor that links
downtown to Highway 101.
We are particularly concerned with the citys inability to
provide pedestrian safety on Holly Street and crossing Holly
Street, the groups president, Ben Fuller, wrote in an email.
The list of proposals include banning or severely restricting truck and bus traffic on Holly Street between Old County
and Industrial roads; adding a crosswalk on Holly Street midway between Old County and Industrial roads; and reducing the
speed limit from 30 mph to 25 mph.

LOS ANGELES With the evidence


coming in from one study after another,
scientists are now more certain than
ever that oil and gas drilling is causing
hundreds upon hundreds of earthquakes
across the U.S.
So far, the quakes have been mostly
small and have done little damage

bricks and rattling nerves. But seismologists warn that the shaking can dramatically increase the chances of bigger, more dangerous quakes.
Up to now, the oil and gas industry
has generally argued that any such link
requires further study. But the rapidly
mounting evidence could bring heavier
regulation down on drillers and make it
more difficult for them to get projects
approved.
The potential for man-made quakes
is an important and legitimate concern
that must be taken very seriously by
regulators and industry, said Jason
Bordoff, founding director of the Center
on Global Energy Policy at Columbia
University.
He said companies and states can
reduce the risk by taking such steps as
monitoring operations more closely,
imposing tighter standards and recycling wastewater from drilling instead
of injecting it underground.
A series of government and academic
studies over the past few years
including at least two reports released
this week alone has added to the body
of evidence implicating the U.S.
drilling boom that has created a bounty
of jobs and tax revenue over the past
decade or so.
On Thursday, the U.S. Geological
Survey released the first comprehensive
maps pinpointing more than a dozen
areas in the central and eastern U.S. that
have been jolted by quakes that the
researchers said were triggered by
drilling.

California orders no water


diversions despite legal rights
SACRAMENTO About 1,500 farms and
individuals in the Central Valley were
ordered Thursday to stop taking water from
rivers and streams for irrigation, the latest
move by state regulators to save water amid
intensifying drought conditions.
It was the start of the latest round of water
restrictions as rivers and streams across
California run too dry to provide enough
water to grow crops and to provide safe passage for fish.
The State Water Resources Control Board
started sending letters to water rights holders, mostly Central Valley farmers in the
San Joaquin River watershed, ordering them
to stop pumping from streams. The order
only applies to those who obtained water
licenses after 1914.

San Mateo burglaries have police on alert


DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

San Mateo police are warning residents to


be weary of burglars preying on homes
across the Peninsula.
Two homes were broken into on the east
side of San Mateo Monday morning and
police are asking people to immediately
report any suspicious activity and consider
registering private surveillance systems
with the department.
Sometime between 9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m.,
thieves broke into a home on the 1700 block
of South Norfolk Street by prying open a
locked rear sliding glass door, according to
police. Once inside, the burglars stole laptops and jewelry, according to police.
Less than a mile away on the 1700 block
of Cottage Grove Avenue, another home

was broken into on the same day. Similar to


the other break-in, thieves pried open a
locked bathroom window and stole laptops
and jewelry, according to police.
A neighbor near Cottage Grove Avenue
reported seeing door-to-door solicitors in
the area around the time of the crime,
according to police.
Police are investigating both crimes and
working to determine if theyre related.
Police Chief Susan Manheimer recently
warned of an uptick in property crimes frequently perpetrated by out-of-county criminals who prey on Peninsula neighborhoods.
So many of our property crimes are these
transitory crews that go from city to city in
a serial fashion and then they hit three or
four places in a city in a day, Manheimer

said previously.
The burglars often target homes that
appear vacant after casing a neighborhood
or posing as solicitors and police are asking residents to be aware of their surroundings and immediately report any suspicious
behavior.
Residents should protect themselves
when they leave by keeping windows and
doors locked while considering placing
bars or dowels in the frame. Police also recommend closing curtains and blinds when
out of the house and, if possible, leaving a

car parked in the driveway. For those who


can install alarm systems, they should consider putting out signs indicating the home
is equipped, according to police.
With security camera footage having the
potential to crack a case, the San Mateo
Police Department is working with businesses and residents to compile a voluntary
list of privately owned systems to enhance
public safety called the Neighborhood Eyes
Security Team, or NEST. If a crime occurs
nearby, but not necessarily next door, security camera owners may not be aware
theyve potentially captured helpful information, according to police.

state appeals court Thursday.
The appeals court had previously overturned the conviction in 2012 but the state
Supreme Court ruled in 2014 that Richard
Toms rights were not violated when a prosecutor told jurors in his vehicular
manslaughter trial that he proved himself
guilty by not asking about the welfare of the
other cars occupants.
Tom was sentenced to seven years for the
February 2007 crash that killed 8-year-old
Sydney Ng and seriously injured her sister
and mother. He was about halfway through

Obituary

Darold (Dick) Fredricks


Resident of San Bruno, CA
February 1, 1933 - April 16, 2015

Darold (Dick) Fredricks, 82, died at his home with his wife,
Margaret, by his side on April 16, 2015 after a long illness.
He had a large personality, believed in lifelong learning,
loved science and history and had a passion for passing that
knowledge on to anyone who would listen. He will be missed by
all the people he touched with his knowledge, humor and love.
Darold was born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota during the Great Depression and
graduated from Washington High School. After serving two years in the military, he
returned to Sioux Falls to earn a Bachelors Degree in Biology from Augustana College.
He played football in high school and college and helped secure unprecedented wins for
their seasons. Darold served his country on active military duty from 1953-55 stationed
in Germany during the Korean Conict and continued with the reserves through 1961,
when he received an Honorable Discharge.
He married Margaret in January, 1958 and had twin daughters, Kim and Karol in 1963.
After a 30-year career teaching Biology and Chemistry at Westmoor High School,
Darold retired and pursued researching his family genealogy. He then turned his
interest in history to the area in which he lived. He wrote and published books on the
history of San Bruno and Millbrae, wrote a novel set on the San Francisco Peninsula
and three more books on growing up in the Midwest. He gave numerous community
history talks, appeared on various television shows including Eye on the Bay, and wrote
a weekly history column for the San Mateo Daily Journal for seven years.
Darold is survived by his wife Margaret (Peggy) Fredricks; daughters Kim Meyer
and Karol Gallucci; four grandchildren Amanda and Lauren Meyer, Matthew and Jason
Gallucci (who thought grandpa was really cool). He is also survived by his sisters June
Brandt and Nancy Reuter; brother James (Joe) Fredricks; several nieces and nephews,
and his cat Emily. Darold was preceded in death by his parents, Ruby and Elmer
Fredricks; brothers Charles, Norman and Frank Fredricks; and sister Dorothy Daggett.
Services will be private. The family asks that donations be made in Darolds memory
to the Peninsula Humane Society, San Mateo, CA.

Petraeus gets to two years


probation for military leak
By Mitch Weiss
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHARLOTTE, N. C. Former CIA


Director David Petraeus, whose
career was destroyed by an extramarital affair with his biographer, was
sentenced Thursday to two years
probation and fined $100, 000 for
giving her classified material while
she was working on the book.
The sentencing came two months
after he agreed to plead guilty to a
federal misdemeanor count of unauthorized removal and retention of
classified material.
The plea agreement carried a possible sentence of up to a year in
prison. In court papers, prosecutors
recommended two years probation
and a $40, 000 fine. But Judge David
Keesler increased the fine to reflect
seriousness of the offense. He said
Petraeus committed a grave and
uncharacteristic error in judgment.
Appearing calm and wearing a
business suit, Petraeus made a brief
statement before he was sentenced,
apologizing for the pain my actions
have caused.
Petraeus attorney Jake Sussman
said this was not a case about the
public dissemination of classified
information, but the wrongful
removal of materials.

But prosecutor James Melendres
said, This is a serious criminal
offense. He was entrusted with the
nations most classified secrets. The
defendant betrayed that trust.
Melendres says Petraeus compounded
that trust by lying to the FBI.
In a brief statement after the hearing, Petraeus said this marks the end
of a two-and-a-half year ordeal, and
he just wants to move on.

I now look forward to moving on


to the next phase of my life, he
said, before walking to a waiting car
and leaving.
Mark Zaid, a Washington attorney
who regularly represents government employees and military members in national security cases, said
Petraeus punishment was lighter
than what others in similar cases
have received.

American, Italian hostages killed in U.S. drone strike


By Julie Pace
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Blaming the fog


of war, President Barack Obama
revealed Thursday that U.S. drone
strikes in Pakistan inadvertently killed
an American and an Italian, two
hostages held by al-Qaida, as well as
two other Americans who had leadership
roles with the terror network.
Obama somberly said he took full
responsibility for the January CIA
strikes and regretted the deaths of
hostages Warren Weinstein of
Rockville, Maryland, and Giovanni Lo
Porto, an Italian aid worker. The president cast the incident as a tragic consequence of the special difficulties of the
fight against terrorists.

The incident is likely to spark fresh


scrutiny of Obamas frequent use of
drones to target terrorists and his pledge
to strike only when there is near certainty that no civilians will be harmed.
Weinstein, who was captured as he
neared the end of a contract assignment
with the U.S. Agency for International
Development, and Lo Porto were killed
during a drone strike against an al-Qaida
compound in Pakistan, near the Afghan
border. U.S. officials said the compound
was targeted because intelligence
showed it was frequented by al-Qaida
leaders. That same intelligence offered
no indication the hostages were there,
the officials said.
Ahmed Farouq, a dual U.S.-Pakistani
national who was an al-Qaida operations leader in Pakistan, was killed in

the strike, along with a small number of


members of the terror organization, the
officials said. Adam Gadahn, an
American who served as an al-Qaida
spokesman, was killed in a separate
strike on a second compound.
It is a cruel and bitter truth that in the
fog of war generally and our fight
against terrorists specifically, mistakes
sometimes deadly mistakes can
occur, Obama said at the White House.
U.S. officials said Farouq and Gadahn
were not specifically targeted in the
operations and there was no evidence
they were at either compound. The officials said had they reviewed hundreds of
hours of surveillance of the compounds,
including continuous monitoring of the
facility where Farouq was killed in the
days leading up to the strike.

Obamas trade agenda
draws GOP support in House
WASHINGTON Legislation to strengthen President
Barack Obamas hand for a new round of trade deals advanced
Thursday in the House courtesy of
Republicans and over the protests of
Democrats, a political role reversal that
portends a bruising struggle over passage
later this spring.
The vote was 25-13 in the House Ways
and Means Committee as pro-business
Republicans outpolled labor-aligned
Democrats. It was the second straight day
the GOP-controlled Congress voted handBarack Obama ed Obama a victory on trade. The Senate
Finance Committee approved a nearly
identical bill Thursday night that would allow lawmakers to
vote yes or no without making changes in trade deals, like the
one now taking shape among Pacific Rim trading partners.
Theyre waiting for this to put their best offers on the
table, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., the House committee chairman, said of negotiating partners that include Japan,
Singapore, Chile and Peru.
The president put in a plug for the legislation while speaking dismissively of its critics. When people say this trade
deal is bad for working families, they dont know what theyre
talking about, Obama told activists and donors with
Organizing for Action, a group with roots in his presidential
campaigns. Democrats said the legislation didnt go far
enough to assure labor standards and environmental protections strong enough to avoid placing American companies at
a disadvantage, and said failure to prohibit currency manipulation abroad would cost U.S. workers their jobs.

House Benghazi panel calls Clinton to testify


WASHINGTON The chairman of a House committee
investigating the 2012 attacks on Americans in Benghazi,
Libya, on Thursday called Hillary Rodham
Clinton to testify at a public hearing next
month, setting up a high-profile showdown over the Democratic presidential
candidates use of a private email account
and server while she was secretary of state.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said he wants
Clinton to testify the week of May 18 and
again before June 18. The first hearing
would focus on Clintons use of private
Hillary Clinton emails, and the second on the September
2012 attacks that killed four Americans,
including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
With her cooperation and that of the State Department and
(Obama) administration, Secretary Clinton could be done with
the Benghazi Committee before the Fourth of July, Gowdy
said in a statement.
It is necessary to call Clinton to appear twice because the
committee needs to ensure we have a complete and responsive
record and all the facts before we then substantively question
her on the Benghazi terrorist attacks, Gowdy said.

Few vets getting care


through $10 billion VA program
NEW YORK A new program that was supposed to get
patients off waiting lists at Veterans Affairs medical centers
by letting them switch to private-sector doctors is proving to
be an even bigger disappointment than initially thought.
The Veterans Choice program launched on Nov. 5 with $10
billion in funding and the expectation that it would instantly
relieve backlogs at VA hospitals and clinics. But after a hurried rollout that has led to confusion as to exactly who is eligible and what they need to do to coordinate treatment, officials now say only 37,648 medical appointments have been
made through April 11.
That figure represents only a tiny fraction of eligible
patients. The Choice plan is supposed to be open to patients
who live more than 40 miles from a VA hospital or clinic or
who have been told they would have to wait more than 30 days
for VA care. As of April 1, there were nearly 432,000 appointments pending in the VAs scheduling system involving a
wait that long.

Saudi-led airstrikes hit


Shiite rebels in six cities
By Ahmen Al-Haj
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANAA, Yemen Attempts to ease fighting in Yemen appeared to falter Thursday, as


Shiite rebels pressed an offensive in the
south and a Saudi Arabia-led coalition intensified its airstrikes less than two days after it
said it was scaling back the campaign.
All sides have declared their willingness to
enter talks, but none has taken any steps to
end the conflict that has killed more than
1,000 people.
Still, the head of U.N. operations in
Yemen said in an interview with The
Associated Press that a renewal of such talks
is inevitable, and behind-the-scenes
diplomatic efforts could bring results in the
coming weeks.
The battle in the Arab worlds poorest
country pits the Iranian-backed rebels
known as Houthis and their allies military
units loyal to former President Ali Abdullah
Saleh against the Saudi-led coalition and
the forces of President Abed Rabbo Mansour
Hadi. Although Hadi is the internationally
recognized leader, he was forced to flee his
southern stronghold of Aden last month as
the Houthis advanced toward the port. He is
in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.

Around the world

JERUSALEM Palestinian militants


fired a rocket from Gaza that exploded in
Israel whose military later retaliated by
shelling a base used by the Islamic militant
group Hamas that rules the coastal territory,
officials said Thursday.
The Gaza rocket exploded inside Israel
without causing injuries or damage Thursday
night as Independence Day celebrations for
the countrys 67th anniversary were winding down.

The Israeli military said it was the first


rocket fired at Israel from Gaza this year.
Soon afterward Hamas officials in Gaza
said Israeli forces fired two shells at a base
its militants use for training. Gaza health
official Ashraf al-Kidra said there were no
injuries.
Gaza militants have fired thousands of
rockets at Israel over the years. However,
rocket fire has mostly stopped since the war
last summer between Israel and Hamas militants.

Closing a chapter

Speaking to the council restricted


By Timothy E. Strinden

t its April 14 City Council meeting, I believe Belmont city ofcials improperly restricted my
time to speak on agenda items. I asked City
Clerk Terri Cook for permission to speak
on four separate items on the agendas consent calendar, and then she, the city manager, city attorney and mayor huddled for
about 10 minutes to decide how to handle
my request. City Manager Greg Scoles then
informed me that I would be given only
three minutes to speak on all four items
combined, and that I didnt have the right
to speak on each item separately.
This action by city ofcials was contrary
to past practice and City Council protocols
that allow the public to speak separately
on each item on the consent calendar, as
for any other item on the agenda. This was
conrmed to me by former Belmont mayors
Dave Warden and Coralin Feierbach. I
believe it was also contrary to section
54954.3(a) of the Brown Act on open
meetings, which requires the agenda to
provide an opportunity for members of
the public to directly address the legislative body on any item of interest to the
public.
Instead of being allowed the normal three
minutes to comment on each subject a
total of 12 minutes Mayor David
Braunstein gave me only ve minutes
total. With just 75 seconds per topic, I was
unable to cover all four subjects, much less
fully explain my reasoning.
I believe city ofcials limited my speaking time because I had sent them emails
before the meeting criticizing the actions
to be approved, and they didnt want this
information publicized. My emails complained about the following: abbreviated
minutes; short retention times for videos
of meetings and other important records;
what I believe to be misinformation pre-

sented by the city clerk


and some councilmembers in prior discussions
of campaign contribution limits; and unjustied increases in the
spending authority of
city ofcials. I believe
the Brown Act was violated because the items I
wished to address were completely unrelated and should not have been grouped
together for comment.
City ofcials may have also been retaliating for my past emails and articles criticizing Belmonts restrictions on free
speech through its Code of Ethics and
Conduct, including the ring of planning
commissioner Karin Hold for refusing to
sign it. If the purpose was to limit public
dissent, I believe the restrictions on my
speaking were also violations of Brown
Act section 54954.3(c), which says the
legislative body shall not prohibit public
criticism of the policies1of the agency,
or1acts of the legislative body.
When I later asked Cook why they did
not follow their protocols for speaking,
she said they had changed the wording on
the agenda last spring to delete the right of
the public to remove an item from the consent calendar for separate consideration,
and that the wording on the agenda superseded the protocols. She said this change
was made as an administrative task at the
direction of Scoles and then-mayor Warren
Lieberman and was never discussed or
approved by the council.
Cook also said the protocols are just a
guideline and there are no absolutes. I
believe the protocols are more than just a
guideline they are the ofcial rules for
the conduct of City Council meetings.
They should be followed unless there is
some compelling reason otherwise, which
there wasnt in this case. There was a very

Guest
perspective
light agenda with no hearings scheduled
and only one other speaker at the meeting,
so there was no need to reduce my speaking
time.
Cook told me the agenda is just a guide
as well, so why would a change in wording
on the agenda supersede the protocols?
Besides, the protocols give the public the
right to speak on the consent calendar
items even if they arent pulled for separate
consideration.
The agenda wording was changed on
March 11, 2014, but the minutes show that
speaker Tran Tran was allowed to remove
two items from the consent calendar for
separate consideration after that change,
on July 8, 2014. She was not even given a
time limit for speaking on each item. That
suggests that I was singled out for unfair
treatment.
I complained to the council and city ofcials April 16 and asked if they would follow the protocols on speaking in the
future, but they did not reply to that question. Its disturbing that four of the top
city ofcials agreed it was OK to ignore
precedent and ofcial city rules with the
primary effect being to stie public input
and dissent. I believe recent actions by this
council, city manager and city clerk to
decrease communication and transparency,
restrict public input and selectively enforce
the citys Code of Conduct are steadily
eroding the rights of residents to participate in city government.

No reason to go to
Bridgepointe without rink
Editor,
The recent proposal from SPI Holdings
to replace the ice rink at Bridgepointe with
more retail got me to ask myself, Are
there any retail stores that would get me
back to Bridgepointe? I can honestly say
no.In this day and age of online shopping,
why would I ever go back?No stores are
worth the trip.
In past two years, while the rink has
been out of operation, I have not been nor
had any reason to visit Bridgepointe. The
seven years prior to that I was at
Bridgepointe three to ve times a week.
The ice rink was the draw; I was willing to
drive to San Mateo for that. Since a great
deal of my time was spent at Bridgepointe,
most of my shopping was done at
Bridgepointe and I also frequently visited

other stores and restaurants in the


area.Every day, I ran into other parents of
children using the rink doing the same
thing I was.
The $3 million SPI is offering will not
even come close to replacing the facility,
customers or community that was lost with
the closure of the rink. Until the rink is
open, there is really no reason for anyone
to return to Bridgepointe.

The genius of $950


Editor,
Proposition 47, passed last year, reduced
the penalty of many property crimes with a
value of $950 or less. Not until recently did
I realize how ingenious the number $950
is.

You see, most homeowners insurance


has a deductible of $1,000 or more, and the
clearance rate for property crimes is very
low: 13 percent for burglary and 15 percent
for larceny, according to the attorney general of California, and thats of the crimes
that are reported. So if you lost a camera to
theft, and its under $950, you are not covered by your insurance. And the chances are
the police cant recover it for you. Why
bother reporting it?
So the insurance companies are happy:
fewer claims. The government is happy:
fewer (reported) crimes. The thieves are
happy: even less likely to be caught if the
crime goes unreported, and, even if caught,
face reduced penalties. Home alarm companies are happy too: because you better have
it. Kumbaya!

ts always sad to say goodbye, but


in that solemn exercise there is an
opportunity to relish the time that
was had. So it is with the death of Daily
Journal history columnist Darold
Fredricks last week.
Fredricks came to the Daily Journal
because of his love of this area and its
past. By reaching into our collective
community archive, he was able to
explore our origins and help those unfamiliar become grounded in our everchanging landscape.
Through his work, I was able to learn
more about San Mateo Countys past from
the origin of San Bruno, just how that
city got its heart-shaped grid in one
neighborhood, the Ohlones who made our
county their
home, just how
important the
trolley lines
were, how we
got those barracks in coastal
hills, how the
cemeteries
came here and
even how the
county came to
be. As someone
whose profession is curating
the first draft of
history, these
columns were a learning experience and
extremely valuable. They also proved to
be quite popular with folks both young
and old, some who learned of these things
for the first time and others who remembered when they occurred.
Some may wonder why there is room in
a newspaper for historical accounts, since
the very name of news has new in it. Its
not only about historical context but it
lends itself to the mission of newspapers,
particularly this one, which seeks to
engage its readers in all types of facts
about this area. History, for some, is boring and dead. But a careful scholar of life
will recognize its value in how a community, and on a larger scale, the world
works. Without it, we are floating in the
present, moorless and singular, alone,
absent a setting for our changing lives.
History is more than an account of the
past, it is story, it is character, it is
insight. As we explore our past, our present makes more sense and we have the
bearings to go confidently into the
future. Fredricks was able to breath new
life into our pages with his history column. His personal accounts of his time
here warmed up those cold facts while
relating it to the changes that took place
many years ago.
He was also a very personable man who
took a certain joy in his work.
Sometimes, while editing his columns, I
could almost see the gleam in his eye.
While he fought illness for the last several years, he was never discouraged by it
and pressed on to write even when his
health was not at its best. Even as he
selected columns to run again when trips
to the hospital prevented him from
researching and writing, he did so with
care. He loved what he did and it showed.
While he too is now part of history, at
least I, and you, had the chance to learn
more about the subject he seemed to relish San Mateo County and its history.
***
And so it is time for a new chapter for
our history column. Longtime journalist
and history buff Jim Clifford will be taking over the column duties soon. As much
as I enjoyed working with Fredricks, I
also look forward to seeing Cliffords
take on our past. After all, there is always
a story in the rear-view mirror youve
never seen before.

Apple, a company that was teetering
on the edge in 2000, is now the biggest
publicly traded company on the planet

Reports say Comcast plans to drop


$45 billion Time Warner Cable bid
By Tali Arbel
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Comcast is abandoning its


$45. 2 billion purchase of Time Warner
Cable, according to media reports.
Bloomberg News and The New York Times
both said Thursday that the cable company
is planning to drop the bid after pushback
from regulators. They both cited unidentified people with knowledge of the matter.
Comcast may make an announcement as
soon as Friday, Bloomberg said.
Comcast and Time Warner Cable declined
to comment.
Combining the No. 1 and No. 2 U.S.
cable companies would put nearly 30 percent of TV and about 55 percent of broadband subscribers under one roof. That would
give the resulting behemoth unprecedented
power over what Americans watch and
download.
That has had competitors, consumer

The Nasdaqs advance was part of a


broader move higher by the stock market on Thursday.
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 20.42 points, 0.1 percent, to
18,058.69. The S&P 500 rose 4.97
points, or 0.2 percent, 2,112.93. The
S&P 500 is about four points below the
record high it set March 2.
The Nasdaqs close was a side attraction for many professional investors,
who have been focused on companies
that have been reporting their quarterly
earnings and how the strong U.S. dollar
has been having a negative impact on
U.S. companies that rely a lot on overseas sales.
3M, General Motors, Procter &
Gamble and Caterpillar all reported
their earnings on Thursday and all said
the strong U.S. dollar hurt them.
P&G, which makes Tide detergent and
Gillette razors, said its profits were
down roughly 7 percent and sales were
down 8 percent from a year earlier. The
company blamed a strong U.S. dollar,
which makes its products more expensive when sold abroad. P&G fell $1.48,
or 2 percent, to $80.95.
Another consumer products company, 3M, also reported lower profits due
to the dollar. The maker of Post-Its and
Scotch Tape fell $5.01, or 3 percent, to
$159.66.

Stunning Warriors win Cap earns


Down 20 in the fourth quarter, Golden State wins in overtime
By Brett Martel
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW ORLEANS Stephen Curry scored


40 points, including a 3-pointer in the nal
seconds of regulation to complete a 20point, fourth-quarter comeback, and the
Golden State Warriors beat New Orleans
123-119 in overtime Thursday night to take
a 3-0 lead in their rst-round playoff series.
Curry hit seven 3s in all, including one to
start overtime that gave the Warriors the
lead for good.
Klay Thompson had 28 points for the
Warriors, who trailed 89-69 after three quarters, then outscored New Orleans 39-19 over
the next 12 minutes.
Anthony Davis had 29 points and 15
rebounds for the Pelicans, but his missed
free throw with 9.6 seconds left as the
crowd chanted M-V-P! allowed Currys
late 3 to tie it.
Curry missed a 3-point attempt in the
nal seconds of regulation, but Marreese
Speights corralled the rebound and handed it
to Curry in the corner, and the Warriors
leader wasnt going to miss twice.
Davis had a chance to tie it in the nal
seconds of overtime, but Warriors center
Andrew Bogut forced him into a difcult
driving shot, which missed badly.
Ryan Anderson, who had hit only two of
11 shots through the rst two games of the
series, responded with 26 points in Game 3,
making 10 of 14 shots.
His second 3-pointer with 1:11 left in
overtime pulled the Pelicans to 119-118.
Soon after, the Pelicans had a chance to take
the lead, but Eric Gordons attempt to surprise the Warriors with a quick 3 backred.
Currys free throws made it 121-118, but
the Pelicans were able to trim the lead with
a free throw and keep the ball because of a
foul away from the ball by Thompson.
Davis made the free throw, but he couldnt
convert the eld goal needed to tie it.

In the 2014 regular-season finale, the Half


Moon Bay softball team edged Capuchino 32 to clinch the Peninsula Athletic Leagues
Bay Division last automatic Central Coast
Section playoff berth.
Capuchino, which finished fourth, earned
an at-large bid.
Thursday, the teams faced off with both
squads trying to scratch and claw their way
back to the postseason.
Capuchino took a step toward that goal
with a 7-3 victory over the Cougars.
We played pretty well (Thursday), said
Capuchino coach Todd Grammatico. Weve
been rebuilding since 2012. I dont have a
lot of upperclassmen. Today, we had only
one senior, two juniors and six freshmen
and sophomores. With young teams, you
make dumb mistakes. It seems you have to
go later in the season before they get it.
With the win, Capuchino (4-4 PAL Bay, 911 overall) pulled into a three-way tie with
Burlingame and Woodside for third place in
the Bay Division standings.
Half Moon Bay (2-6, 9-10), on the other
hand, finds itself in seventh out of eight
teams in the division.
Not really the outcome I wanted to see,
said Half Moon Bay coach Deanna RochaTower. We had some issues and lost some
players (this season) and its been hard to
bounce back.
The Cougars also had a hard time bouncing back from a big Capuchino advantage.
The Mustangs jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the
bottom of the first inning, tacked on two
more in third and broke the game open with
a four-run fourth for a 7-1 lead.
That was more than enough offense for
Capuchino pitcher Rafella Dade, who was on
top of her game for most of the contest
Thursday. She was perfect through three
innings before Half Moon Bay touched her
for an unearned run in the top of the fourth.
Back-to-back triples from Olivia Hedding
and Willow Gelphman, along with a runscoring groundout from Sarah OKeefe, gave
the Cougars a pair of runs in the top of the
seventh, but they could get no closer.
Dade allowed three runs (two earned) and
struck out six while scattering five hits in a
complete-game effort.
She pitched pretty well, Grammatico
said. For whatever reason, she has her lapses, but she did really well today.
The Capuchino offense had a strong outing against Half Moon Bay pitcher Ally
Sarabia as the Mustangs banged out 12 hits.

Giants beat Dodgers in 10, complete sweep


By Rick Eymer
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Justin Maxwell took


advantage of a second chance to drive in the
winning run.
Maxwell was robbed of a big hit in his previous at-bat, but his single with one out in
the 10th inning sent the
San Francisco Giants to a
3-2 win over the Los
Angeles Dodgers Thursday
for a three-game sweep.
In the eighth inning,
with the bases loaded and
two
outs,
Maxwell
smacked a liner up the
middle, but second baseJustin Maxwell man Howie Kendrick made
a diving catch to end the
threat and preserve a 2-1 Dodger lead.
I go into every at-bat looking to hit the
ball hard. I was ready to hit, Maxwell said of
his winning single. Winning is fun. I cant
wait to get on the plane and celebrate with the
team.
A day after they edged the Dodgers by the
same 3-2 score with a run in the ninth, the
Giants again frustrated their division rivals.
It was a great series, Giants manager
Bruce Bochy said. It could have gone either
way the last two games. Its been a tough

homestand and this made it not so bad.


The Giants rallied to score the tying run in
the ninth when Casey McGehee led off with a
single and Brandon Crawford tripled against
Joel Peralta.
Juan Nicasio (0-1) gave up a single to
Angel Pagan to open the 10th and got Buster
Posey on a fly out. Pagan stole second and
Brandon Belt was walked intentionally ahead
of Maxwell.
Angel is our catalyst, Bochy said. Hes a
tough out and he gives us speed. He got us
going and got the stolen base. He looked
determined to get home.
Santiago Casilla (2-0) pitched the 10th for
the win as the Giants swept the Dodgers at
home for the first time since May 2013. The
defending World Series champions have won
four of five following an eight-game losing
streak.
This shows you what this year is going to
be, how this division is going to be,
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said.
Buckle up.
The Dodgers had brought a seven-game
winning streak into AT&T Park.
Pagan, Maxwell and Joe Panik each had two
hits for the Giants.
Alex Guerrero homered and singled and is
batting .474 (9 for 19) with four homers and
12 RBIs for the Dodgers. Adrian Gonzalez
also homered.

Los Angeles starter Mike Bolsinger, who


did not allow a run in 11 minor league
innings, took a shutout into the sixth. He finished allowing one run on five hits. He
walked two and struck out five.
Bolsinger, the reigning PCL Player of the
Week, was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma
City to make the start.
Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong gave up two
runs on three hits in six innings. He walked
one and struck out five.
In the sixth, Bolsinger gave up a one-out
walk to Panik and a single to Pagan. After
Posey struck out, Belt singled home a run.

T2:20. A24,304 (45,957).

ANAHEIM After Nick Tropeano shut


down the Oakland Athletics in a dazzling
debut, three relievers escaped big jams with
the help of some stellar defense.
When the Los Angeles Angels play this
well otherwise, one hit is plenty.
Tropeano pitched five-hit ball into the
seventh inning, and Kole Calhouns tworun homer was the Angels only hit in a 2-0
victory Thursday night.
Calhoun homered in the third, and four
pitchers combined on an eight-hit shutout
that allowed the Angels to salvage a split a
four-game series with their upstate AL West
rivals. The Angels didnt have a baserunner
after the third inning, but won with just one
hit for the third time in franchise history,
the first since June 16, 1986.
Two runs, but thats all the pitching staff
needed, Calhoun said. Thats huge for us.
Today is really all about the pitching staff.
Tropeano (1-0) was impressive in a spot
start, yielding one walk and striking out
five less than 48 hours after learning he was
headed to the majors. Given the chance in
Anaheim by C.J. Wilsons stiff elbow and
Matt Shoemakers bereavement leave,
Tropeano showed off his nasty changeup
and improved as the game went along, leav-

ing to a standing ovation after Josh


Reddicks leadoff single in the seventh.
I was obviously ecstatic to know Im
pitching in the big leagues, at the Big A,
but I think youve just got to approach it
like any other start, Tropeano said. I started pounding that first strike, and it opened
things up for me.
He was nearly matched by Jesse Chavez
(0-1), who gave up one hit and three walks
in six innings during his first start of the
season.
But that hit was costly: Calhoun drove a
one-out pitch to right after Drew Butera
reached on a throwing error.
We held on, Angels manager Mike
Scioscia said. They gave us a little break
with the error, Kole connected, and that was
about it. ... Ive seen us lose on a no-hitter.
Winning on a one-hitter was a lot better.
Fernando Salas escaped a jam with two
runners on in the seventh, and Joe Smith
narrowly got out of the eighth when
Calhoun tracked down Reddicks drive to the
right-field wall with two on.
Huston Street pitched the ninth for his
fifth save, though he allowed his first
baserunner of the season on Marcus
Semiens two-out infield single. Collin
Cowgill made a sprinting catch in foul territory to end a frustrating day for Oakland,
which went 5-5 on its road trip.

Chavez began the season in Oaklands


bullpen, but largely mowed down the
Angels in his return to the rotation. After
the rocky third that included two walks, he
retired his final nine batters.
To give up one hit on a moments notice
to make a start, I dont know how you can
ask much more than that, As manager Bob
Melvin said. I cant remember the last time
we got beat by one hit.
Oakland hadnt lost a game while giving
up only one hit since April 14, 1992, at
Kansas City.

Trainers room
Athl eti cs : Chavez got the start in place
of Jesse Hahn, who has a blister. ... Ben
Zobrist fouled out to end the game, also ending his 18-game hitting streak against the
Angels. He didnt play in the first three

left knee.

Bonds legacy may Steroid cloud remains in

SAN FRANCISCO For the rst time in

His conviction overturned on appeal,
baseballs home run king is no longer a

that he didnt break any laws, many fans
and even some baseball peers concluded
the ex-San Francisco star cheated by using
performance-enhancing drugs.

transforming the game back to 1960s-style
pitching and defense.
If the early 1960s were defined by the M&M
Boys Mickey Mantle and Rogers Maris
the 1990s and 2000s have been marked by the
B&B Boys: BALCO and Biogenesis.

I think performance-enhancing
drugs is not an issue that you
can check off as solved.
Rob Manfred, MLB commissioner

I think performance-enhancing drugs, not


only for baseball but all athletics, is not an
issue that you can check off as solved, new
baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said
Thursday. The temptation to use drugs is
large, and I dont think its realistic to expect
in any sport that youre to get to a situation
where you never, ever have another violation.

Sharks owner endorses rebuilding plan

SAN JOSE San Jose Sharks owner


Hasso Plattner remains behind general manager Doug Wilsons rebuilding plan despite
the team missing the playoffs for the first time
since 2003.
In a letter to Sharks fans posted on the
teams website Thursday night, Plattner
praised Wilsons leadership of the team over
the past year. While Plattner did not specifically say Wilson would return as general manager, a person with knowledge of his plans
said on condition of anonymity that Wilsons
job is safe.
Plattner said that three trips to the confer-

ence finals during a 10year playoff run was not


enough,
especially
because the Los Angeles
Kings and Anaheim
Ducks have combined for
three Stanley Cup championships in that span.
The Sharks announced
Hasso Plattner earlier this week that
coach Todd McLellan
would not be back after seven seasons. After
10 straight playoff berths, San Jose finished
12th out of 14 teams in the Western
Conference this season.
We clearly had a window of opportunity,
but the NHL has a very balanced constitution
which doesnt allow for money to become the

dominant factor, Plattner wrote. You cant


buy a team, you have to build it which is very
fair. And after you traded picks for ready-toplay veterans, you sooner or later have to start
rebuilding the team. We had hoped that we
can do both, stay competitive and rebuild at
the same time. It was close but the other teams
in our conference were better.
Plattner said it doesnt matter now if the
Sharks should have started the rebuilding plan
sooner or added reinforcements this season to
extend the playoff run. The goal for the franchise remains winning the Stanley Cup.
The rebuild is in full progress, the team is
now amongst the youngest in the league and
has a great future, he wrote.
Plattner also said the team is trying to finalize a deal with the city of San Jose for a new

arena that will keep the Sharks in the South


Bay. He said he has been unsuccessful in
altering a long-term local television deal that
is below market value.

WARRIORS

The Pelicans, who went 28-13 at home during the regular season, withstood a strong start
by Golden State and then used a stunning 190 run to open a double-digit lead.

Warriors: F David Lee missed his third


straight game, but coach Steve Kerr said he
was doing better and expected to do some
3-on-3 work during practice on Friday. ...
Green fouled out late in overtime.
Pelicans: Quincy Pondexter received a
technical foul in the third quarter for arguing
with officials after he was called for blocking
on Curry. ... New Orleans shot 59.6 percent
(28 of 47) in the first half, including 5 of 11
from 3-point range.

Curry two. They then missed their next 10


attempts from long range before finishing 14
of 41 (34.1 percent) from beyond the arc. New
Orleans made 13 of its first 18 shots in the
second quarter, but only 7 of 19 shots in the
fourth quarter.

Draymond Green had 12 points and 17
rebounds for Golden State, which finished
with 22 offensive rebounds and 30 secondchance points.
Shaun Livingston had 12 points and
Harrison Barnes added 11 for Golden State.
Tyreke Evans had 19 points and Norris Cole
added 16 for New Orleans, which lost despite
outshooting the Warriors 51.1 percent (46 of
90) to 41.1 percent (42 of 104).

CAPUCHINO
Continued from page 11
knee all year, Rocha-Tower said of Sarabia.
The Mustangs got their bats going early,
scratching out an unearned run in the first.
Leadoff hitter Allie Stines, who was 3 for 4 with
a pair of doubles and two runs scored, singled to
center to lead off the game and went to second
when the ball was fumbled in the outfield.
Following a foul out, Miki Solarzano came up
and ripped a RBI single to right on an 0-2 count
to put Capuchino up 1-0.

Davis started the surge with a putback dunk


and Cole scored seven points during the run,
including a 3 and reverse layup, the latter putting the Pelicans up 39-25.

Plattner said the team remains committed to


achieve sustainable success and thanked
fans and corporate partners for their support
even when everything has not gone as hoped.
Are we perfect? No, not all moves will
play out as thought and the competition will
do everything to keep us at bay, he wrote.
But we have a tremendous core, the older
players are still fully committed, and some of
the sophomores will enter their third year.

Bench scoring

New Orleans led by as many as 16 points in


the quarter before Golden State trimmed it to
63-52 at halftime, thanks in part to
Thompsons fifth 3 of the half.

Streaky shooting

Tip-ins

The Warriors made their first five 3-point


attempts, with Thompson hitting three and

Pelicans reserves outscored Golden States


58-26, largely because of the production by
Anderson and Cole, as well as Jrue Holiday,
who had 10 points.

Solarzanos single was merely an appetizer


of what was to come. She went 3 for 4 from
the plate and drove in five of the Mustangs
seven runs.
Capuchino extended its lead to 3-0 with a
pair of runs in the third. Karina Chavarria
reached first base on a one-out, bunt single.
She stole second and went to third when the
throw from the catcher got by the shortstop
covering the bag. She came home on a
Solarzano single up the middle, who then took
second when the ball was bobbled in the outfield again. Solarzano would come around to
score on Adrianas Picazos bloop single to
left.
Half Moon Bay would get on the board in

the top of the fourth when Abby Donovan singled to right. She would come around to score
when Angela Brazil singled to left and the ball
rolled past the left fielder, allowing Donovan
to motor around the bases.
The Mustangs, however, all but iced the
game in the bottom of the frame as they collected five hits to score four runs. Julie
Swedberg got the rally started with a single to
right. She moved to third on a Stines one-out
double. A Chavarria bunt loaded the bases and
Solarzano cleared them when she unloaded on
a 1-2 offering and blasted a shot to deep into
the gap in right-center field for a three-run
triple.
Miki has been coming up with timely hits,

Grammatico said.
Solarzano came in to score on a Luce Tutoe
sacrifice fly to center.
Despite the loss, Rocha-Tower believes her
team still has a shot at making the playoffs. A
lot of things have to go the Cougars way, but
she believes it can be done.
Our goal is to get a .500 record, RochaTower said. Our goal is win five of our last
eight.
Grammatico is taking a similar approach
with his team.
I told the girls, We have six games left.
Every game is the most important game,
Grammatico said.

Five big leaguers have been suspended for


positive tests in the past month, evidence
some athletes always will seek an edge and
some chemists will be nearby to enable them.
Since 2005, there have been 68 announced
suspensions under the major league drug program 760 as part of the minor league plan,
including PEDs, amphetamines and drugs of
abuse.
You cant pick up the paper without baseball suspending two or three minor leaguers,

THE DAILY JOURNAL

The decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court


of Appeals on Wednesday to overturn Bonds
obstruction of justice conviction by a 10-1
vote likely ends the Bay Area Laboratory CoOperative case, which began in 2002.
Olympic track gold medalist Marion Jones,
elite sprint cyclist Tammy Thomas, former
NFL defensive lineman Dana Stubblefield were
convicted along with coaches, distributors, a
trainer, a chemist and a lawyer.
Bonds will escape conviction, barring a
successful appeal by prosecutors. Clemens
was acquitted of all charges in 2012 after prosecutors accused him on lying to Congress.
For some, they are among the tainted. For
others, their lengthy accomplishments take
precedence.
Baseball needed something to bring it
back after the 94 strike, Los Angeles
Dodgers shortstop Jimmy Rollins said.
Baseball came back strong for whatever reason. Some things have been proven, some
things are just hearsay, finger-pointing,

things of that nature. Baseball was in an exciting time.


As part of the fallout from BALCO,
Commissioner Bud Selig commissioned a
report from former Senate Majority Leader
George Mitchell, and Congress pressured
Major League Baseball to toughen drug testing, which began in 2003.
Mark McGwire, whose home-run chase in
1998 captivated the nation, admitted he used
performance-enhancing drugs. So did former
MVPs Jason Giambi, Ken Caminiti, Alex
Rodriguez and Ryan Braun, along with Jose
Canseco and Andy Pettitte. Manny Ramirez
was suspended twice following positive tests
and Rafael Palmeiro once. Six of the top 14 on
the career home run list have either admitted
using steroids, been suspected or been suspended.
Biogenesis, a Florida clinic whose activities became known in 2013, is some ways was
the son of BALCO: 14 players were suspended
stemming from MLBs investigation, includ-

ing A-Rod and Braun. Still, Travis Tygart,


chief executive officer of the U.S. AntiDoping Agency, said baseball has moved in
the right direction.
The truth of what was going on in baseball
has been long exposed, and baseball today is
a much different culture and game than it was
when Bonds played, Tygart said. Baseball
today and clean athletes today have to be
thankful for the sad legacy that Bonds his era
of players left, but its provided a level playing field for players today.
Still, odds are more players will test positive and get suspended, even big stars.
Rodriguez lost more than $22 million, Braun
over $3 million and Nelson Cruz nearly $3
million as part of their punishments stemming from Biogenesis. And their images likely wont ever completely recover.
I dont think theres any penalty, no matter
how severe, lifetime ban, whatever, that is
going to eliminate the temptation, Manfred
said.

engaged with the game, Manfred said


Thursday. People develop hero worship for
great players like Barry and I think in terms
of keeping fans engaged, its important to
have those players around.
For 15 seasons, former Triple-A left-hander John Yandle threw Bonds batting practice sessions, from the time he joined the
Giants in 1993 through his record-setting
nal season of 2007. Bonds broke Hank
Aarons all-time home run record on Aug. 7,
2007, with No. 756 and went on to nish
with 762.
Its good to have this chapter behind and
to have him cleared of all charges, so hopefully people can remember him for the baseball player that he was and not all these
other things that surrounded his persona,
Yandle said. All I can say is he gave us a lot

of stand-up-from-our-sofa, yelling-at-thetop-of-our-lung moments during his years


here. Thats what I certainly remember and
appreciate all the time I was able to spend
with him throwing.
Yandle communicated with the 50-yearold Bonds by text message on Wednesday
following the ruling, and I think hes
relieved, too, hes got to be relieved that
its all over with and hopefully this is where
it ends and taxpayers money can be used for
better purposes now.
In his third year on the Hall of Fame ballot, Bonds received 202 votes for 36.8 percent from the Baseball Writers Association
of America.
Rollins, for one, counts him as a Hall of
Famer.

Through and through, Rollins said.


But the Hall of Fame is obviously more
than just numbers. You cant debate his
numbers. Theres nothing to debate.
Yes, for what he did for the game of baseball, Id say so, said former Giants teammate Tim Lincecum, the two-time NL Cy
Young Award winner whose rst season was
Bonds last. Itd be kind of hard to argue it.
When youre found innocent, its hard to
argue with that either. ... Its probably a
load off his shoulders.
The seven-time NL MVP worked with the
Giants in spring training in 2014 and has
been more of a regular at AT&T Park, something that could continue especially
now.
Whats next for Bonds, nowadays an avid
cyclist, in baseball and beyond is unclear.

Rose, who turned 74 this month, applied


for reinstatement in September 1997 and
met
in
November
2002
with
Commissioner Bud Selig, who never ruled
on the application. Rose submitted another application for reinstatement after

Manfred succeeded Selig in January.


We have gathered volumes, I mean literally volumes of documents, related to the
original investigation, Manfred said,
explaining how they had been brought out
of storage. Theyre in the process of
organizing those, preparing summaries so
that I can review those documents.
MLB has spoken with Roses representatives about how the process for Manfreds
evaluation will go forward. Manfred said it
was too early to estimate a timetable.
Fox, which will televise the All-Star
Game, said last weekend it had hired Rose
as a studio analyst this season. Because of
the ban, Rose is not allowed in areas of
ballparks not open to fans, except with
special approval from the commissioners
office.
Foxs decision is their decision,
Manfred said. Its really not something
that we have any contractual control over

or that we ever had any input in.


Rose has been ineligible for the Hall of
Fame ballot because of the lifetime ban.
Manfred was asked about the distinction
between Rose and players tainted by allegations of steroids use, who are eligible
for the Hall but have fallen short of election.
I dont accept the analogy between
steroids and gambling, Manfred said. I
see gambling as different in a sense that
baseballs rules on gambling have been in
place literally for decades. Theyve been
clear. They spell out specific penalties.
The reason those rules exist is that gambling is corrosive in a number of ways,
including raising the specter of somebody
of not doing everything they can to win.
Steroids a very, very different kind of
issue.

Truth About Deceptive

Cremation Practices
By Paul Larson
MILLBRAE

(This was first


published in 2010,
but its currently
needed again with
updated details)
Attacks from a
number of out of
state cremation corporations have been
waged upon our local and well respected
mortuaries. By now many of you reading
this article have been targeted by the flood
of junk advertising being spread across the
Peninsula & Bay Area by these cremation
outfits that use deceptive language to spread
their misleading message. Its no secret that
societies such as the Trident-Neptune
Corporation are using scare tactics to sway
consumers when they are most vulnerable.
Their mailings, which are many times
disguised as friendly notes, use falsehoods
to imply that their business practice just
makes sense or is much less expensive
luring in unsuspecting consumers. Their
shrewdly worded letters which use
implications such as fancy and expensive
funeral home, falling victim to pressure to
overspend, spending your familys
inheritance or up-selling are crafted to
imply some sort of dishonesty. Also, an
alluring enticement to WIN is flaunted
with tempting instructions to include your
phone number & key personal data.
The truth is that these societies are no
more than wealthy competitors to your
locally owned mortuary, and their costs are
not only comparable, but many times
MORE expensive than what your local
mortuary offers. Ive had families come to
me at the Chapel of the Highlands with
stories of being seduced by certain

cremation societies with talk of lower


costs and other persuasive language. Tales
of unimpressive staff and meetings in
bunker-like facilities are common. After
comparing local mortuaries & cremation
costs it was discovered that a mortuarys
total balance can be similar or even LOWER
than these societies.
Families have
realized that it would have been much more
comforting if they had called the Chapel of
the Highlands first. Our Chapel is well
experienced and has been highly regarded
for assisting families with low cost
cremations decades before cremation-only
corporations ever existed. We are also a full
service facility offering our Chapel for
Memorial Services if desired.
My advice if you ever wish to
investigate cremation:
Do your homework and call your locally
owned mortuary first to compare costs
along with reports on good reputation;
Dont let cremation societies message
of being much less expensive or offers
to WIN fool you;
Dont turn over your phone # or personal
info to un-requested cremation solicitors;
If you must use a cremation society
find out where they are headquartered
and about any prior or active lawsuits.
Thank you for reading my rebuttal. It
bothers me that these societies are openly
using misleading language and making
blanket implications about mortuaries.
Their tactics are unwarranted and my only
desire is for the truth to be known.
If you ever wish to discuss cremation,
funerals or make pre-planning arrangements
please feel free to call me and my staff at the
CHAPEL OF THE HIGHLANDS in
Millbrae at (650) 588-5116. We will guide
you in a fair and helpful manner. You may

An Avengers overdose
By Jake Coyle
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

It will surely stand as one of the


most peculiar and possibly ironic
entries in a directors filmography that in between Joss
Whedons two Avengers films
there reads Much Ado About
Nothing: a low-budget, black-

and-white Shakespeare adaption


sandwiched between two of the
most gargantuan blockbusters
ever made.
In Avengers: Age of Ultron,
there is definitely aplenty adoing. Too much, certainly, but
then again, we come to the
Avengers for their clown-car
excess of superheroes, their col-

orful coterie of capes.


What binds Whedons spectacles with his Shakespeare are the
quips, which sail in iambic pentameter in one and zigzag
between explosions in the others.

American Indian actors quit Adam Sandler movie over names


By Russell Contreas
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. A group of


American Indian actors walked off the set
of an Adam Sandler movie this week over
complaints about stereotypes, offensive
names and scenes they say disrespected
Native American religious practices.
Actor Loren Anthony told the
Associated Press on Thursday that he and
eight others quit the production of the

and theres even less room in the massive


and massively overstuffed sequel for
Whedons dry, self-referential wit.
As a sequel, Age of Ultron pushes further into emotionality and complexity,
adding up to a full but not particularly satisfying meal of franchise building, and leaving only a bread-crumb trail of Whedons
banter to follow through the rubble.
The action starts predictably with the
Avengers assaulting a remote HYDRA
base in the fictional Eastern European
republic of Sokovia. They are a weaving
force: Robert Downey Jr. s Iron Man,
Chris Hemsworths Thor, Mark Ruffalos
Hulk, Chris Evanss Captain America,
Scarlett Johanssons Black Widow and

feels responsible, said Chris Evans, who


plays Rogers for the fourth time in the billion dollar Marvel franchise.
Neither one of them are blindly convicted. Its blurry and thats what makes it
great. No ones right, no ones wrong,
said Evans in a recent joint interview with
Robert Downey Jr., back for a fifth turn as
Stark.
Its going to make it even harder for
them to come to an agreement, which Im
really excited about, said Downey.
While the seeds of a fight are scattered
throughout Ultron, the second gathering of the Avengers on the big screen
out May 1, its also setting the stage for
next years Captain America: Civil War.
Plot details are sparse, but any casual
comics fan knows that Civil War is
where the Avengers fracture, divided

satirical Western The


Ridiculous Six after
producers ignored their
concerns about its portrayal of Apache culture
and the inappropriate
use of props.
Anthony said the
script included offenAdam Sandler sive names for Native
American female characters and a scene where a Native American

woman urinated while smoking a peace


pipe. Another scene used chicken feathers
on teepees, he said.
Right from the get-go, it didnt feel
right. But we it let it go, said Anthony, a
Navajo actor who started work as an extra
on the movie Monday. Once we found out
more about the script, we felt it was totally disrespectful to elders and Native
women.
The Ridiculous Six is produced by
Sandler and Allen Covert and is slated for a

Netflix-only release. Production began


this month in Santa Fe and elsewhere in
northern New Mexico.
The film is a comedy designed to lampoon stereotypes, Netflix said.
The movie has ridiculous in the title
for a reason: because it is ridiculous, a
company statement released by Netflix
said. It is a broad satire of Western
movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not
only part of but in on the joke.

Jeremy Renners Hawkeye.


Their powers are as various (supernatural,
technological, mythological) as their flaws
(Iron Mans narcissism, the Hulks rage, the
Black Widows regrets). Downeys glib
Tony Stark/Iron Man is the lead-singer
equivalent of this super group and, I suspect, the one Whedon likes writing for the
most. Ive had a long day, he sighs.
Eugene ONeill long.
What Age of Ultron has going for it, as
such references prove, is a sense of fun, a
lack of self-seriousness that persists even
when things start going kablooey something not always evident in other faux-serious superhero films. (See: Man of Steel,
or rather, dont.)
In Sokovia, they encounter duplicitous
twins: the quick-footed Quicksilver (Aaron
Taylor-Johnson) and the mystical Scarlet
Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). The real villain,
though, is the titular Ultron, an artificial
intelligence that the Scarlet Witch slyly

leads Stark to create, birthing not the global protection system he hopes, but a maniacal Frankenstein born, thankfully, with
some of his creators drollness.
Ultron (James Spader) builds himself a
muscular metallic body and begins amassing a robot army to rid the planet of human
life. Spader plays Ultron who is too similar
to other mechanical monsters to equal Tom
Hiddlestons great Loki, the nemesis of the
last Avengers film. But Spaders jocular
menace adds plenty. He wickedly hums
Pinocchio melodies: There are no strings
on me.
But the drama of Age of Ultron lies only
partly in the battle with Ultron. The film is
really focused on the fraying dysfunction of
the Avengers and their existential quandaries as proficient killers now untethered
from the dismantled S.H.I.E.L.D. agency.
Theres not a wrong note in the cast; just
about anything with the likes of Spader,
Ruffalo, Johansson, Hemsworth and

Downey cant help but entertain. But the


dive into the vulnerability of the Avengers
doesnt add much depth (is the home life of
an arrow slinger named Hawkeye important?) and saps the films zip.
All the character arcs the Avengers, the
bad guys and the new characters are simply too much to tackle, even for a master
juggler like Whedon. The movies hefty
machinery the action sequences, the
sequel baiting suck up much of the
movies oxygen.
In the relentless march forward of the
Marvel juggernaut, Age of Ultron feels
like a movie trying to stay light on its feet
but gets swallowed up by a larger power: The
Franchise.
Avengers: Age of Ultron, a Walt Disney
release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion
Picture Association of America for intense
sequences of sci-fi action, violence and
destruction. Running time: 141 minutes.
Two and a half stars out of four.

down lines set by Tony and Steve.


Its also the only upcoming Marvel film
for which Downey and Evans have been
confirmed.
Its like a marriage, said Evans. We
love each other but its explosive. Youre
working toward the same goal but you have
very different approaches to it.
Added Downey: Im really stoked to see
when we have more stuff to actually do
together besides like act like were about to
have a fight one day.
Off-screen, the dynamic is, of course, a
bit more polite. Sitting on a patio at the
Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, Downey
and Evans were calm and casual with each
other.
When Evans tried to explain how others
on set are more talented and smarter than he
is, Downey quickly jumped in to offer some
reassurance.
I have stood toe to toe with some of
t h e g reat es t fo l k s o f al l t i me an d i f
Spencer Tracy is right you know, hit
your mark and tell the truth nobody
that Ive worked with does it the way that

(Evans does), said Downey.


God. I tinkled a little bit, laughed
Evans in response.
As with the rest of the Avengers actors,
Evans is downright deferential in the presence of Downey. He made sure to immediately stress Downeys essential contributions to creating Marvels Avenger world.
In 2008, the success of Iron Man laid the
foundation for what is now one of the most
influential series in the industry.
None of this would have happened without Downey, said Evans, who went on to
compare him to The Godfather.
Success has many masters. Its fun taking all the credit, but the only part of it
thats true is that I put points on the board
for a team that didnt even know it was
going to be a team, said Downey.
Ultron isnt even in domestic theaters
yet, but pre-production is already underway
on a summer shoot for Civil War, with
Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony
Russo at the helm. In the big business of
the Marvel Cinematic Universe, theres no
waiting to see how Ultron performs

before greenlighting future projects.


Both The Avengers and Iron Man 3
made over $1 billion at the global box
office. And, since Disney came on to produce the films, none have made under $600
million worldwide. With a slate that
extends through 2019, the studios are betting hard on the continued appeal and evolution of Marvels universe.
Some people say theres going to be
superhero exhaustion. But these movies
arent just superhero movies, said Evans.
The superhero involvement is whats
going to bring the audiences because of the
familiar properties but then you get into
the movie and its not just him and his suit,
its not just me and my shield. Its people
having real life discussions and real life
conflicts as characters, thats what people
are going to relate to.
Downey agreed, but with a provision.
What will happen is it will change, he
said. Im just stoked that we get to be still
doing this at the point where its representative of what it is. It kind of drives the
industry.

Stanford Symphony
takes on piano robot
By David Bratman
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

The great Australian pianist Percy


Grainger performed the first movement of
Griegs Piano Concerto in A Minor with the
Stanford Symphony Orchestra, conducted
by Jindong Cai, at Bing Concert Hall on
Saturday.
Thats a surprising statement. Percy
Grainger died over half a century ago. But
his pianism lives on, in the form of a piano
roll of the solo part made of his playing in
1921. Grainger was embodied in an electricpowered piano-playing robot, a cabinet
with a roll-playing mechanism inside and
mechanical fingers sticking out the back.
Place the robot in front of an ordinary
Steinway grand, and the mechanical fingers
play the keyboard, albeit not easily visibly
to the audience. Volume and pedals are also
controlled by the roll.

The concert was the culmination of a


Stanford symposium, two days of talks
about everything from what the piano rolls
of the pupils of Liszt say about the composers practice in his music, to the technical
challenges of digitally scanning rolls for
preservation and dissemination. Stanford
has gotten seriously involved in the study
and preservation of piano rolls since purchasing last year a huge trove of 7,450 early
20th century rolls and 10 players (Like vintage software, vintage piano rolls are not
compatible between manufacturers). This
collection was the lifelong hobby of the
late Denis Condon, an Australian music
teacher. The staff at Stanfords Archive of
Recorded Sound is now engaged in cataloging and preserving these rolls, and others recently purchased, with plans to digitize them in the future.
At the concert, it was as eerie to watch the

SENIOR CORRESPONDENT

LIGHT OF THE LANDS CAPE IN


WATERCOLOR BY STEVE CURL, AT
PORTOLA ART GALLERY IN MENLO
PARK. Locally known as the editorial cartoonist for the Palo Alto Daily News, Steve
Curl is also a watercolor artist and teacher.
His paintings are inspired by his travels
throughout California, Colorado, Yosemite
National Park, and his local hikes on the
coast and in the Santa Cruz Mountains. For
the past five years, Curls paintings of
Yosemite National Park have been accepted
into the prestigious annual Yosemite
Renaissance Exhibition, where they are on
display all year in the Yosemite Visitor
Center Museum and Art Gallery.
Curl said: I love the simplicity and freshness of watercolor. It behaves in the same
way that nature does, using the simplest of
elements. It is easily portable and dries
quickly, so it is the perfect medium to take
on travels and extended hikes. Often times,
the best paintings are produced quickly with
a few simple, gestural brush strokes, rather
than extended picking away in the studio. It
is not particularly forgiving, however, so
you have to think ahead, be decisive and try
to nail it on the first passes of color.
Having practiced the medium for more
than 30 years, Curl also teaches Watercolor
Painting at the Pacific Art League of Palo
Alto, where he has had an enthusiastic following of students since 1991. When asked:
How long did it take you to do that painting? Curl likes to tell his students, Oh,
about two hours and 20 years. Curls work

may be seen through May 31 at Portola Art

Report: Few colleges have Shakespeare requirement


By Mark Kennedy
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK As Shakespeare


would say, We have seen better days.
The American Council of Trustees
and Alumni has found that less than 8
percent of the nations top universities require English majors to take a
course focused on Shakespeare.
The study, The Unkindest Cut:
Shakespeare in Exile 2015, found
that only four of the nations 52 highest-ranked universities and colleges by
U.S. News & World Report have a
Shakespeare requirement.
Michael Poliakoff, vice president of
policy for the Washington, D.C.-based

council and lead


author of the study,
called the findings
a terrible tragedy.
It is with sadness that we view
this phenomenon,
he said by phone.
It really does make
us grieve for the
Shakespeare loss to a whole generation of young
people who would look to a college or
university for guidance about what is
great and what is of the highest priority.
The report was released Thursday on
what is believed to be Shakespeares
birthday in 1564. It comes a day after

The Bard, who is the birthright of

robot sitting impassively in front of the busy piano as it


must have seemed when this technology was new a century
ago. Despite no visible movement at the piano, a vivid and
immediate performance was coming out. As Rex Lawson, a
British scholar of piano rolls, said at the conference, where
early recordings are like early photographs, piano rolls are
like portraits. Technically, the former are better likenesses,
but the latter often better capture the illusion of life.
Grainger was more varied in tempo and expression than

the orchestra tended to be in piano-less passages.


Coordination became a bit of a challenge where the piano
was playing subordinately, since the one thing the reproducing piano cant do is respond to the orchestra and conductor.
This isnt a problem in unaccompanied piano music. The
indefatigable robot went on to give such performances by
three great pianist-composers Rachmaninoff, Ravel and
Gershwin in their own works. All were as expressive as
Grainger. Gershwins Sweet and Low Down in particular
was jazzy, more so than his phono-recordings.
The concert also featured another kind of player piano,
the pianola. Its a similar cabinet which also fits in front of
a regular piano, except that this one is foot-pumped by a
human player. The vigor of the pumping controls the volume, and there are hand-levers for speed and the pianos pedals. Rolls made for these, rather than expressive performances by great pianists, are simple transcriptions of the
score. Interpretation is the pianola players job.
Rex Lawson, the worlds leading virtuoso on this forgotten instrument, was that performer. He put real character

into rolls of pieces by Stravinsky and Rachmaninoff, and
rammed through an elaborate canon composed expressly for
the player piano by the American composer Conlon
Nancarrow.
Lawson also participated in a newly written concerto,
Ayayay! by the Venezuelan-British composer Julio
dEscrivn. Lawsons pianola was accompanied by percussion and winds, plus computer and iPhone sounds manipulated by dEscrivn on stage. Composed largely by programming complex sound patterns into a computer and
transcribing what came out, the concerto is choppy, pulsating, continuously-running music that seemed frequently
accompanied by an iPhone going off, as indeed it was.
Perhaps just to prove that there is still a place for live
pianists, the concert concluded with an unmechanized performance of Rachmainoffs Rhapsody on a Theme of
Paganini. The solo part was played by Stanford undergraduate Ben Mildenhall with precise, warmly ringing sonorities and a notably gentle slowness in the famously lyrical
18th variation. Cai led the excellent student orchestra with
spirit and clarity.

Massey. They will be there in the
flesh, doing what they do best and
thats taking their motorcycles about
80 feet into the air doing all sort of different kind of tricks.
Metal Mulishas Jimmy Fitzpatrick,
an X-Games gold medalist with his
own action figure, is returning to the
coast while leading a crew of daredevil
pros like Derek Garland, Julian
Dusseau and Jesse Jolson.
Their stage is two metal ramps
spread a staggering 75 feet apart where
the men will contort into awe-inspiring tricks like the kiss of death, the
cliffhanger, the Captain Morgan and
more.
They have to be extremely physically fit, all these guys theyre professional athletes and they take that very
seriously. Youve got to have some
serious cojones and nerves and fearlessness to get out there. Every time
they go up in the air, they could die,
and being able to face a fear like that
on a daily basis for your livelihood,
takes some serious heart, Massey
said. And youve almost got to be a
little crazy, a little off. Every one of
these guys are their own breed of man,
they lack some sort of survival or selfpreservation instinct.
Massey, a former Americas Got

years working as a teacher, principal
and administrator in the Palo Alto
Unified School District.
Skelly, 54, most recently was working as interim superintendent at the
Mountain View Whisman School
District for the past four months and
was superintendent in Palo Alto for
seven years. According to a district
press release, Skelly has more than 30
years of experience and began his
career working for a program serving
talented students from disadvantaged
backgrounds in Washington, D. C.
Skelly was also a high school math
and Spanish teacher. In 1993, he
began an 11-year stretch as principal
at Saratoga High School in Santa Clara

The freestyle motocross show and
other crowd-favorite active displays
are returning to the coast with the help
of a Federal Aviation Administration
waiver organizers garnered for the first
time a response to being forced to
cancel several exhibitions after hosting a demolition derby two years ago
that didnt sit well with a neighbor.
This year, attendees can watch military aircraft flyovers, unimotorcycle
drag races, remote-controlled drones
and aircraft aerobatics shows and even
hop on a monster truck for a rocky
ride.
This is a unique event. The Pacific
Coast Dream Machines is unlike any
other event in terms of the variety of
displays and things to do and see, said
event spokesman Tim Beeman. Its a
highly anticipated event every year.
And every year we have fresh and new
displays and attractions. This year
were bringing back a lot of our active
and extreme sport events.
As part of the 25th anniversary,
Dream Machine founder Bob Senz and
the late Half Moon Bay stunt pilot
Eddie Andreini, who died during a fiery
crash while performing at Travis Air
Force Base last May, will be honored
during a special tribute ceremony.
Senz and Dream Machines Chairman
Chad Hooker recalled how the one-day
event began as a small car show that
raised funds for the Coastside Adult
Day Health Center. After gaining popularity over the last 25 years, the event
has expanded into hosting more than
2,000 unique machines and, during a
good season, has raised nearly
$100,000 for the senior-serving non-

profit, according to Beeman and


Hooker.
The most rewarding component is
the work weve been able to do for the
adult day care center and the seniors
that rely on that center. The money
weve raised from Dream Machines
keeps that organization viable,
Hooker said.
Thousands of adrenaline junkies are
expected to partake in a swath of exciting experiences like zip-lining,
bungee jumping as well as thrilling
rides in helicopters and biplanes.
For those who prefer to stay grounded, theres tons of static exhibits like
mechanical artifacts presented by the
California Historic Artillery Society,
hundreds of aviation wonders from as
far back as the 1940s and 1950s as
well as everything from a classic pink
Mustang to a new all-electric motorcycle.
We are excited and the thing that
draws people, like anything else, is if
its unique, Hooker said. There will
be unique aircraft and military
machines and a lot of fun, hopefully in
the sun!

cation policy and administration from


the University of California at
Berkeley.
The search for a new superintendent
to lead the 8, 200-student district
began in December.
What most impressed the board
about Kevin is his passion for ensuring all students fulfill their potential,
Marc Friedman, president of the Board
of Trustees, said in the release. His
known success at Palo Alto Unified for
addressing student opportunity and
achievement gaps, and his leadership
in increasing the number of students
that satisfy the UC and CSU A-G
requirements really helped the board
determine that Kevin was the best fit
for the SMUHSD.
The A-G curriculum, established
by the University of California and
California State University systems,
has the required courses universities
deem necessary for college freshmen
to have taken in high school.
Skelly is anticipated to take over his
new post officially July 1, pending a
site visit scheduled for next Thursday
and finalization of an employment

contract. The board anticipates finalizing the appointment at its next regular
meeting scheduled for May 12, 2015,
according to the district press release.
I became an educator because I
believe those who help young people
realize their potential are doing some
of the most important work there is,
Skelly said in the press release. I look
forward to continuing to do the work I
love in SMUHSD and seeing it into its
next chapter. I feel extremely fortunate
to have the chance to work with the
board in leading this nationally
renowned district.
During Laurences time as superintendent, there were various challenges
with which to deal, including the
struggle to find facilities to house
schools like the new Design Tech High
School and Peninsula Alternative High
School as well as the district office
when very few properties are available
along the Peninsula. Recently, the district has announced a new location for
Design Tech in Burlingame and is closing in on a property purchase on the
Burlingame Bayfront that may serve as
new district offices and be used for
other needs.

EU leaders commit ships, aid to address migrant crisis


By Raf Casert and Lorne Cook
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BRUSSELS Late to the rescue, European


leaders came through Thursday with pledges
of big ships, aircraft and a tripling in funds
to save lives in the Mediterranean after the
deaths at sea of more than 1,300 migrants
over the past three weeks, and agreed to lay
the groundwork for military action against
traffickers.
Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi,
whose country has been faced with almost

CLOSURE
Continued from page 1

submit a budget document to the San Mateo


County Office of Education projecting balanced books over coming years, backed by
a sufficient reserve fund.
Officials did not specify which school
would be closed, or which principals would
be shared. But the board agreed bringing
back libraries and maintenance staff would
be the highest priorities, should an influx
of state money grant the district the ability
to reinstate programs.
Under the boards approval, the library
closures and principal sharing would begin
next school year, with an eye to shutting
down a school in the subsequent school
year.
The cuts were announced as officials are
locked in a contract dispute with district

HOLLY
Continued from page 1

The list of proposals was sent by Holly


Street resident Petar Blanusa on behalf of
Greater East San Carlos members.
Expanding the lanes on Holly during the
day has led to dramatically increased car
speeds, Fuller wrote.
The City Council will consider some of
these proposals at its Monday night meeting
as it hears from Public Works Director Jay
Walter on the results of the parking restric-

daily tragedy as rescuers plucked bodies from


frigid waters, called it a giant step forward.
Within days, Britains aptly named HMS
Bulwark and the German supply ship Berlin
could be steaming to the heart of the
Mediterranean in the biggest sign of the
European Unions belated commitment to
contain the tide of rickety ships making the
perilous crossing.
The pledge of resources came as victims of
the worst-ever migrant disaster in the
Mediterranean were buried Thursday in
Malta. Two dozen wooden caskets contain-

ing the only bodies recovered from a weekend capsizing off Libya that left at least 800
migrants feared dead were laid out for a
memorial service.
None of the bodies was identified: One casket had No. 132 scrawled on it, referring to
the number of the DNA sample taken from
the corpse in case a relative ever comes to
claim it.
For several years as death tolls have
mounted, EU leaders have done little more
than deplore the loss of lives and mark
tragedies with moments of silence and

wreaths instead of fundamental action. When


Libya disintegrated politically after the
overthrow of longtime leader Moammar
Gadhafi and unrest spread in neighboring
countries, Europe failed to take forceful
action.
On Thursday, EU leaders pledged to do
more, committing at least nine vessels to
monitor the waters for traffickers and intervene in case of need. Other member states,
from France to Latvia, also lined up more
ships, planes and helicopters that could be
used to rescue migrants.

teachers, who are asking for their first raise


in nearly a decade.
The two sides have been at an impasse for
months, and are close to engaging in fact
finding, which is frequently the last step
before a work stoppage.
Julia Maynard, president of the teachers
union, said an overwhelming majority of
teachers in the district are willing to strike,
should the two sides fail to come to a resolution.
The crux of the contract disagreement
between the district and educators stems
from officials asking teachers to take a pay
cut to help close the budget gap, while
teachers are requesting a 4 percent raise. The
district approved laying off 17 teachers during a previous round of spending reductions.
The boards decision came at the chagrin
of many community members, who advocated for maintaining as many education
programs as possible.
Closing libraries is an idea that should

not be entertained, said Gary Pettinari,


president of the districts classified union.
Should the district move forward with
closing a campus, it would be the second
since 2003, when Crestmoor Elementary
School was shut down due to declining
enrollment.
When the school closed, Kimberli
Moffitt-Tsui, a parent of a student at
Crestmoor, said officials should learn from
its previous experience shuttering a campus
and move as quickly as possible to identify
which site is slated to be axed.
If a school closure is looking like its
going to happen, do not draw the process
out, she said. Tear the Band-Aid off.
Marty Medina, a San Bruno resident, also
encouraged the board to make its tough decisions in a timely fashion.
Youre here as leaders, he said. Do
something, and do it quickly.
The board postponed taking action on the
budget cuts last week, in hopes of collaborating with residents to raise enough money

to contribute to closing the budget gap.


But ultimately, the board expressed the
sentiment that the communitys efforts were
too little, too late, and that officials needed
to approve a variety of difficult cuts.
Blanco said she voted against the cuts
because she could not support closing district libraries.
Sanchez though said he supported approving the variety of program reductions, with
hopes that state legislators will be able to
provide additional funding in the future,
which will allow the district to keep as
many of its libraries, staff and services as
possible.
If the money comes in May, then the
whole picture improves, then the board can
rescind the movement, he said. Its a risk,
but Im willing to take that risk.

tions and striping changes that took effect in


October.
Walter is also requesting an additional
$20,000 to extend traffic counts and travel
time monitoring this summer in August.
Hexagon Transportation Consultants performed traffic counts and travel time runs in
August and November 2014 and March 2015
and found no significant difference after
changing the striping and restricting parking
during the day between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
The councils move to ease the traffic flow
during the day on Holly resulted in a lawsuit
that challenged the councils action but
recently a judge dismissed the complaint.

Residents Rick Martinez and Alicia Cabrera


filed the lawsuit in September arguing that
the council vote allowing the changes to
Holly Street was invalid because residents
were not given enough notification about the
vote and that the city did not first undertake
an environmental impact report on the project.

Other proposals the council will consider


include providing signs, possibly electronic,
to warn motorists that cars are parked in the
right-hand lane; and widening driveway
aprons to make it easier for residents to enter
