San Mateo considers wage hike, $15 by 2018


City Council will consider carving out exemptions for small businesses, nonprofits
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

San Mateo is moving closer to raising the


minimum wage as the City Council will
consider a formal ordinance Monday to go
beyond a recently enacted state law and help
many low-wage workers earn $15 per hour
by 2018.
The council has sought a variety of ways

employees struggling to

cost of living and Mayor
Joe Goethals noted raising the citys minimum
wage while keeping the
need of local businesses
in mind is key.
I know its not going

to solve the housing crisis. But its one


small step that makes it a little bit easier for
the people who need it the most, Goethals
said.
In trying to strike a balance amongst concerned business owners and nonprofit leaders who fear the increase could have unintended consequences, the council will consider carving out exemptions.
Although the terms could change after the

council meets Monday, June 6, the initial


proposal is for small businesses with 25 or
fewer employees as well as nonprofits to
have an extra two years to phase in the
increase.
The city hosted several meetings to discuss increasing the minimum wage to better
reflect the areas high-cost of living with

After 12 years of Hot Harvest


Nights, the San Carlos Chamber of
Commerce has decided to hold the
event on Sunday mornings and the
City Council was cool with the idea.
It starts this Sunday at 10 a.m., will
open for four hours and run all year
long.
Many past vendors are returning and
new ones will be on hand as well.
In addition to locally farmed produce
and flowers, gourmet and specialty
foods, there will be cooking demonstrations, local artists, live music,

play at the new market.
Hot Harvest nights drew big crowds
but it also may have hurt some of the
brick-and-mortar restaurants and other
businesses on Thursday nights,
prompting the chamber to change
strategies. The nighttime market also
only lasted from May through
September.
Lots of discussion took place
among downtown businesses, particularly restaurants, David Bouchard,
San Carlos Chamber of Commerce
chief executive officer, wrote in a

downtown was really becoming a hindrance to local businesses. We needed

folks will walk and bike on a Sunday as
opposed to rushing over after work,
Bouchard wrote.

Making a difference in education


Make/Learn Celebration highlights creative learning techniques
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Youngsters perhaps inspired by the


innovation and design displayed during
the recent Maker Faire may return for a second helping of fun at a similar event hosted this weekend by the San Mateo County
Office of Education.
The education-infused Make/Learn
Celebration at the offices headquarters on
Redwood Shores will grant students,
teachers and parents a chance to check out
the latest and greatest lessons available
on the makers market.
Local educators are seeking to harness
the power of the makers movement, as the
design methods focused on creation and
innovation often resonate deeply with
young students, said Rebecca Vyduna, who
is coordinating the event Saturday.
Vyduna, the director of science, technology, engineering and math at the Office of
Education, said a focus of the event is
illustrating how making and design can
align with the more traditional model of
classroom learning.
We really believe children are born with
this incredible, innate human curiosity,
but the education process might make that
stagnant, she said. Making gives us an
opportunity to engage in the incredible
value that comes with curiosity.
The event, which is sponsored through a
grant from the Oracle Corporation, will
feature a variety of companies and products showcasing the groundbreaking initiatives possible through making.
The TechShop trailer will be present to
offer attendees a chance to check out a
mobile 3-D creation lab, educators and students from the Ravenswood City

Comment on
or share this story at
www.smdailyjournal.com
Elementary School District will present a
robotics lab showcase, students from
Design Tech High School will engage in a
challenge to explore the value of design
thinking, the Resource Area for Teaching
will host a creation station, among many
other creative programs.
The free event, held at 101 Twin Dolphin
Drive in Redwood City, is open to the public but nearly 500 people have expressed
interest in attending, which means capacity has been reached, said Vyduna.
Beyond the opportunity for the public to
enjoy the creative offerings, the event
will serve as a program kickoff for a classroom education program available via the
Office of Education as well.
In an effort to boost accessibility of
maker-themed lessons, the office will hold
a set of kits that teachers can rent and
bring to their students remotely. The kits,
donated by the Oracle Corporation, will be
available for teachers, parents and students to view during the festivities.
Vyduna said officials are hopeful local
educators will learn through the event that
making lessons can be an effective means
of conveying standard disciplines in a
fashion that requires students to thinking
critically to find a solution.
Making can also assist students in learning the importance of trial and error along
with unconventional problem-solving
methods, which can prove useful in
addressing complicated and confusing
real-world issues, said Vyduna.

Teachers who have been trained and are


accustomed to employing traditional education techniques could also perhaps use a
refresher on the potential value of the
making movement, said Vyduna.
We have to dust off those skills that are
there to feel confident again to lead this
work, she said. We need to be makers
ourselves.
Especially in Silicon Valley, a hub of
innovation and creative thinking, are
these types of lessons valued, said
Vyduna, and drawing from the wealth of
local resources has been invaluable in the
offices effort to enhance its cutting-edge
curriculum.
We have been so encouraged and excited by how passionate these partners are in
jumping in and supporting us, she said.
A key component of the maker initiative
is collaboration and teamwork, which
Vyduna said is never more evident than
when officials sought partnership from
nearby companies for contribution to the
event.
Everyone we asked said yes, said
Vyduna. Its just really refreshing. People
who have that experience of learning and
making, they know how empowering it is
and they want others to have that. Its awesome to see how collaborative the community can be.
The Make/Learn Celebration begins 10
a.m., Saturday, June 4, at the San Mateo
County Office of Education, 101 Twin
Dolphin Drive, Redwood City.

Turning tragedy into an opportunity


By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Jamie Chen was in her San Bruno home


with her grandmother when a gas pipeline
below the Crestmoor neighborhood exploded, annihilating houses, properties and lives
just hundreds of feet away from the couch
where she sat.
Years removed from the disaster in 2010
that claimed the lives of eight people, injured
66 and destroyed 38 homes, Chen recalled
how the tragedy transformed her perspective.
It really taught me the brevity of life,
said Chen.
As the 18-year-old senior at St. Ignatius
College Preparatory in San Francisco stands
on the precipice of enrolling as a freshman in
the University of California at Berkeley,
Chen has been granted a chance to turn the
disaster into an opportunity.
The San Bruno Community Foundation,
the organization charged with allocating the
nearly $70 million paid in restitution by
Pacific Gas and Electric in the wake of the
blast, named Chen as one of the inaugural
winners of its recently established scholarship program.
Chen was one of the seven students with
ties to the San Bruno community awarded the
Crestmoor
Neighborhood
Memorial
Scholarship paying toward pursuit of a college degree during a ceremony Wednesday,
June 1, at the San Bruno Senior Center.

Leitu Takapu, Erick


Sullivan, Allie Stines,
Giselle Hengst, Anthony
Harvey and Alejandra
Andrade joined Chen as
winners of the collective
$100,000 granted this
year by the foundation to
high schoolers and community college students.
Jamie Chen
Chen, who plans to
pursue a career in medicine in part because of the care she witnessed
provided to those in need following the
explosion, expressed a deep appreciation for
the scholarship.
Im glad our community was able to turn
this into something positive, she said.
Hengst, who will go from Capuchino High
School to attend Vanderbilt University in the
fall, shared a similar sense of gratitude.
It really means a lot to know the people in
San Bruno are supporting me, she said.
Paying for college is so difficult and I want
to go to graduate school, so not having a lot
of debt would be very helpful.
Planning to double major in environmental
sociology and womens studies, Hengst said
she is uncertain of the career path she will
ultimately select, but is leaning toward a government position in the field of social justice.
Hengst, 17, said the tragedy did not affect
her personally at the time of the blast, but
suggested perhaps subconsciously her inter-

est in social justice was


driven by the investigation to the cause of the
explosion.
In the wake of the blast,
Hengst said her primary
recollection was the way
residents and neighbors
rallied to support each
other.
Giselle Hengst
Going to school the
next week was super
weird, she said. It is shocking to think
something like that could happen in San
Bruno, the place where I grew up my whole
life. To not feel safe was shocking.
Hengst and Chen, along with Andrade and
Harvey, will receive a $5,000 annual scholarship from the foundation which is renewable
for four years, paying toward a total contribution of $20,000. Stines and Sullivan, high
schoolers enrolling at local community colleges, will accept $2,500 annually for two
years. Takapu, transferring from Skyline
College to San Jose State University, will
receive $5,000 for two years under a scholarship worth $10,000.
Leslie Hatamiya, executive director of the
foundation, said in a prepared statement she
was proud to help ease the path for local students toward seeking higher education.
We are thrilled to assist the first class of
Crestmoor scholars in realizing their dream
of pursuing a college degree, said Hatamiya.
The scholarships, along with a community

grant program, are two of the first initiatives


launched by the foundation since the $68.5
million in restitution was paid by PG&E in
2012.
The foundation is charged with spending
the fund toward benefiting the San Bruno
community, while a separate settlement has
been paid to those from the Crestmoor neighborhood who suffered the brunt of the blast.
Chen, whose home and family were
unharmed in the explosion, said witnessing
the selfless work of first responders to the
incident compelled her to enroll in emergency medical technician, or EMT, training
classes.
I thought they were so fearless, they really inspired me, she said.
Chen finished the class at Skyline College
and took an exam that, if she passes, will
allow her to work part time as a first responder in Berkeley.
While planning for her time in college,
Hengst said she is also prepared to begin the
next chapter of her life.
Im so excited, she said. Ive been so
ready to graduate high school and go to college, I wish the summer would be shorter.
But as she prepares to leave her hometown,
Hengst reflected on the opportunity provided
by the scholarship.
Im glad the foundation exists and is using
money to support San Bruno residents, she
said. I think its really cool they are thinking about the future.

California Assembly
moves to tax marijuana growers
SACRAMENTO California lawmakers are moving to
levy taxes on medical marijuana growers after hammering out
pot regulations last year.
The Assembly voted 60-12 to pass AB2243 Thursday.
The bill authorizes charges of $9.25 per ounce of marijuana flowers, $2.75 per ounce of pot leaves and $1.25 per
ounce of immature pot plants.
Legislative analysts estimate the taxes would raise $77
million annually for local police and environmental cleanup.
Some marijuana activists oppose the taxes as unreasonably high, saying the flower tax alone would be 10 percent of
marijuanas value. Democratic Assemblyman Jim Wood of
Healdsburg says his proposal was killed at the last minute
during negotiations to regulate marijuana last year.
The Senate approved a 15 percent marijuana sales tax earlier this week. Local governments currently tax pot about 7.5
percent.

Portrait of U.S. economy looks


cloudier after poor jobs report
By Paul Wiseman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON An unexpectedly
bleak May jobs report has suddenly
muddied the outlook for the U.S. economy.
Until this week, the Federal Reserve
had seemed poised to raise interest
rates perhaps as soon as June 15 a
sign of confidence that the economy
was strengthening after struggling just
to grow early this year.
Any such certainty vanished at 8:30
a.m. Eastern time Friday.
That was when the government
reported that employers added a scant
38,000 jobs in May the fewest
since 2010 and far less than econo-

mists had expected. Whats more, the


government cut its estimate of hiring
for March and April by a combined
59,000.
We had been expecting a June rate
hike, said Beth Ann Bovino, U.S.
chief economist at Standard & Poors
Ratings Services. Now it seems like
the Fed can take a breather and await
other economic statistics to help clarify the economic picture.
Other recent data are also sending
mixed messages to economic policymakers, investors and corporate executives.

JOBS
Fridays jobs report was unambiguously ugly.

Its an across-the-board disappointment, said Patrick OKeefe, director


of economic research at the accounting
firm CohnReznick.
The unemployment rate sank to an
eight-year low 4.7 percent but only
because 458,000 Americans stopped
looking for work and were no longer
counted among the unemployed. Many
of them had likely grown discouraged
over failing to find a job.
And Mays slowdown in hiring wasnt a one-month wonder. The economy
has now added just 347,000 jobs over
the past three months the weakest
three-month stretch since 2012.
The monthly jobs reports have
been flashing a warning signal for

DUI interlock bill passes Senate


By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Legislation aimed at deterring repeat


drunk driving offenders from getting
behind the wheel while intoxicated
received unanimous bipartisan support
in the state Senate this week.
State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo,
proposed the bill that would require
anyone convicted of driving under the
influence to install an ignition interlock device a Breathalyzer linked to
a vehicles ignition for between six
months and three years depending on
their number of offenses.
Hill, whose friend was killed by a
drunk driver 35 years ago, noted the rise
in DUI-related deaths and injuries
prompted him to expand a current fourcounty pilot program that has shown
success over the last five years. He was
pleased the bill received unanimous
support in the Senate and is hopeful the
Assembly will recognize its potential
to save lives.
I think the time has come, people
are fed up with the 1,000 people who
lose their lives and 20,000 injured
every year in this state by drunk drivers, Hill said.
Hill noted 25 states already have
interlock ignition device requirements
for DUI offenders and its time for
California to join.
Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, a
sponsor of the bill, conducted a survey
of the pilot that has been in effect in
Alameda, Los Angeles, Sacramento and

Tulare counties over


the last few years,
Hill said. MADD
found the program
incredibly effective
with the interlock
devices preventing a
million convicted
offenders from driving after having had
Jerry Hill
any alcohol and prohibited 150,000 people who were
legally drunk from driving their car,
Hill said.
The Department of Motor Vehicles is
also compiling a report about the efficacy of the pilot program. Although the
DMV previously found that the such a
law would not necessarily deter people
without an interlock device from drinking and driving, Hills office argues it
reduces recidivism and helps stop repeat
offenders from endangering themselves
and others.
The few opponents to the law include
defense attorney associations who argue
judges should have more discretion to
decide whether the interlock devices
should be mandatory, particularly for
first-time offenders. The cost of the
devices is another concern for opponents, particularly as DUI convictions
can cost offenders upwards of $10,000.
But Hill noted the bill has provisions
for low-income individuals for whom
the expenses of the device may be burdensome, to only pay a percentage of
the cost and have the interlock
providers pick up the remainder. Judges

could also have the discretion to reduce


other DUI-related fines, allowing
offenders to instead allocate the money
toward the interlock device. Currently,
it runs about $70 to $150 for installation and between $60 to $80 per month
for the service. First time offenders
would be required to install the devices
for six months, a year for a second
offense, two years for a third offense
and three years for a fourth or subsequent offenses.
Hill also emphasized the program
would assist offenders from spiraling
into deeper trouble by not having their
license suspended which isnt
always a deterrent from driving and
those who get caught face more penalties.
Instead of getting their license suspended, they would have the ignition
interlock device installed on their vehicle so they could continue to take their
children to school, go to work and function in society rather than not be able
to drive. So to me, thats a major benefit and we know the public will be safe.
Hill said. And look at the financial
cost to society, the pain and suffering
to society and [DUI offenders will]
hopefully realize theres a problem,
that there are programs they could get
involved in that could change their
live.
Assembly Bill 1046 will be heard in
various Assembly committees, including public safety, and must be approved
on the floor before it can be considered
by Gov. Jerry Brown.

Trumps reluctant backers:


Republicans falling in line
By Steve Peoples and Scott Bauer

JANESVILLE, Wis. Hes finally got


Paul Ryans endorsement, but many officials in Donald Trumps new wave of supporters remain reluctant backers at best.
Leaders who have pledged their backing
still arent wholly satisfied with his temperament, policies or readiness for the
White House.
As Trump works to unify the fractured GOP
behind him, these Republicans, Ryan
among them, are struggling to show the
same enthusiasm Trump has generated

the nation.

Clinton: Trump has lowered


the bar regarding protests
By Catherine Lucey
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WESTMINSTER Hillary Clinton said


Friday that Donald Trump has lowered the
bar with regard to keeping the peace at his
rallies and creating an environment that
encourages dialogue.
The likely Democratic nominee for president said in an interview with CNN that the
presumptive Republican nominee has set a
very bad example for not condemning the
violence that is increasingly associated with
his rallies, whether by his own supporters or
his opponents.
We must condemn all violence in the
political arena, Clinton said. I dont think
any of this helps anybody.
Clinton once again hit Trump for the controversy surrounding his now-defunct Trump
University, a real estate education program
that some participants said made fraudulent
promises, saying that the New York real
estate mogul preyed on people.
He has taken them by asking them to max
out their credit cards to a point of financial
despair and walked away. So I will let the law-

San Jose, California police


under fire after Trump rally
SAN JOSE This Silicon Valley city and
its police department are facing mounting
complaints of a tepid and tardy law enforcement response to attacks of Donald Trump
supporters after a political rally.
Videos circulating online show physical
clashes occurring in front of San Jose police
officers dressed in riot gear and standing
stoically in a line outside the convention
center where Trump spoke. Critics also complained that assaults occurred on side streets
near the venue that lacked police presence.
Potentially more could have been done,
said San Jose Councilman Pierluigi

Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2016. She was born
in Guatemala, Central America, on July 3,
1923.
Marina came to San Francisco in 1954.
She met Max O. Messinger in 1957 when
they worked together at Wilbur-Ellis
Company in San Francisco and they were
married May 30, 1958.
Her children Katherina Messinger and
Alex Messinger, Alexs wife Patty and her

Marina was active in the San Mateo

Spanish at Mercy High School in
Burlingame from 1961-1965. She was
involved with the Catholic Charities

suits go on, Clinton said.


Trump University is the target of two lawsuits in San Diego and one in New York that
accuse the business of fleecing students with
unfulfilled promises to teach secrets of success in real estate. Trump has maintained that
customers were overwhelmingly satisfied
with the offerings. During a rally Friday in
Westminster, California, Clinton attacked
Trump for saying the federal judge presiding
over a case has a conflict of interest because
he is of Mexican heritage.
The judge is doing his job. Thats what he
got appointed to do, Clinton said And
Donald Trump wants to change the subject
like he does all the time. So instead of facing
up to the facts that are coming out ... he
wants to change the subject and he is attacking a distinguished jurist.
Clinton also joked that if Trump got into
the White House, hes going to Trump you!
Just 70 delegates shy of clinching the
Democratic nomination, Clinton now leads
rival Bernie Sanders by 268 pledged delegates and her advantage grows with the

Advetisement

THE TRUTH ABOUT "DISCOUNTED" DENTAL IMPLANTS!


The old rule If it's too good to be true, it probably is applies to dentistry too.
When looking for tooth replacement options, do not fall victim to misleading
marketing tactics. Do your research, ask the right questions, and know what
you are getting. Its a lifetime investment and shouldnt be taken lightly.
If you are researching dental implants you have seen the ads for $1895 complete
or $4000 OFF! Great deal right, NOT SO FAST chances are you are getting
exactly what you paid for, and not what an educated consumer would want!
Such special fees do not correlate with cost of highly trained professionals
and materials for a level of precision and quality that implant supported
crowns require. Here is the typical range costs to replace a single missing tooth:
Implant placement related costs to the dentist:
Dental Implant (reputable companies with well researched implants):
$400 to $450
Healing abutment (a temporary extension that sits on the implant): $40 to $50
Surgical guide (a stent guiding accurate implant placement): $50 to $150
Drills (series of drills in various diameters necessary to prepare the bone for
implant placement): $50-$100
Crown related costs to the dentist:
Impression post (to take impression of implant): $40 to $50
Implant analog (An implant duplicate used for models): $25-$35
Permanent abutment (supports the crown): Customized by lab: $225 to $450;
Generic : $100 to $150
Permanent abutment screw (holds abutment on implant): $50 to $65
Permanent Crown (made by a high quality lab): $250 to $600
And for teeth replacement in the upper front area (smile zone) add:
Temporary Abutment (Necessary for support of temporary crown): $125-$175
Temporary Crown (Necessary for implants in the smile zone): $125-$175
As you can see, these costs to the dentist amount to $1,360 - $1,950 just for the
cost of HIGH QUALITY materials. This does not include the impression
materials, accessory materials, advertising multiple appointments, personnel
and administrative costs, and a reasonable return to the dentist.
So just how does the discount implant center do it? Here is the catch: They
employ common "cutting corner" strategies to offer a low fee and still make
profit on this procedure.
Bottom line, don't look for the lowest price, but best long-term value!

Deaths of despair drag life


expectancy lower for whites
By Mike Stobbe
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Rising drug and alcohol overdoses, suicides and disease
from chronic alcoholism labeled
deaths of despair by one expert
are cutting the lives of white
Americans short by nearly a half a year
on average.
Increases in these types of deaths
among whites means that life
expectancy for whites is not increasing as fast as it is for other groups,
according to a government report that
offers an unusual look at how different
threats are affecting U.S. lifespans.
Things are moving in the wrong
direction, said Anne Case, a
Princeton University researcher, of
what she calls deaths of despair.
Drawing from death certificate data,
the new report from the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention focuses on what happened to white life
expectancy between 2000 and 2014.
The work was a reaction to recent
research that suggested drug overdoses
and suicides have caused alarming
increases in death rates for middle-aged
white Americans. The new report,
which did not perform the same analysis for blacks and Hispanics, was posted online Friday.
Overall, white life expectancy still
grew because other things were
improving. Deaths from heart disease
the nations No. 1 killer dropped
significantly, and that alone added a
year to white life expectancy. Nearly
one more year was added because of
falling death rates from cancer, stroke,
and motor vehicle crashes, the
researchers found.
But then drugs and alcohol subtracted about 4 months from life expectan-

Drugs and alcohol subtracted about 4 months from life expectancy of white
Americans. No other cause of death had a bigger negative impact.
cy, according to Kenneth Kochanek, a
CDC statistician who was the reports
lead author. No other cause of death had
a bigger negative impact, he said.
Increasing suicides had the second
largest negative impact, subtracting
roughly 6 weeks from white life
expectancy. The growing impact of
Alzheimers disease was third, reducing longevity by about 3 weeks.
Falls also whittled down white life
expectancy gains, the researchers
found. So did chronic liver disease,
often the result of heavy alcohol consumption or injection drug use that
spreads the liver-destroying hepatitis
C virus.
Experts cite several possible reasons that drug overdose deaths and suicides are occurring far more often
among middle-aged whites than other
groups. They say whites have had an
easier time getting access to the powerful painkillers that have been the
root of the current drug overdose epi-

demic. And whites may more quickly


turn to suicide because often they dont
have the kind of family and social support often seen in black and Hispanic
communities, they say.
Though the gap is closing, white life
expectancy is still significantly
greater than life expectancy for
blacks.
White life expectancy grew to nearly
79 in 2014, from about 77 1/2 years
in 2000. Black life expectancy rose to
a little over 75 from about 71 1/2. Life
expectancy for Hispanics rose to 82
years from 79.
Things may be taking a turn for the
worse, however. Earlier this week,
CDC issued a report on preliminary
death data for 2015 that showed the
U.S. death rate rose slightly the
first increase in a decade. The report did
not break down what was happening in
different racial groups, but experts say
whites death trends are likely the primary reason.

Last four soldiers missing
from Fort Hood accident found dead
FORT HOOD, Texas The last four soldiers still missing
after a truck carrying a dozen troops was washed from a flooded low-water cross at Fort Hood were found dead Friday, bringing the death toll from the accident to nine.
The bodies were found downstream from the Owl Creek
Tactical Crossing where the swift waters of the flooded creek
swept the troop carrier from the crossing, said Maj. Gen.
John Uberti, Fort Hood deputy commander. Three other occupants of the 2 1/2-ton troop carrier were found dead shortly
after the Thursday morning accident, and two more were found
dead Thursday night.
Three survivors were discharged from Fort Hoods hospital
on Friday, Uberti said at a Friday evening briefing at the
Central Texas Army post. Identities of the dead were being
withheld pending notification of their families, he said.
The portion of road on the northern fringe of the post
where the Light Medium Tactical Vehicle overturned Thursday
hadnt been overrun by water during past floods, Fort Hood
spokesman Chris Haug said earlier Friday.

Banks and other financial companies led a modest decline in


U.S. stocks Friday after a report
indicating that hiring slowed

The market slide snapped a twoday winning streak and sent bond
prices surging as investors sought
safety in U.S. government-backed
debt. The dollar also fell sharply
against several major currencies.
The downbeat jobs data
appeared to convince traders that
the Federal Reserve will keep
interest rates low longer than previously expected. It also stirred
concerns that the economy is
slowing.

this number as a beginning of a

firms grew in May at the slowest
pace in more than two years,
while the Commerce Department
said orders to U.S. factories rose

six months.
The weak hiring data fueled
speculation that the Fed will hold

Street was anticipating could happen as soon as July. That weighed
on banks and financial services
companies, as low interest rates
make it harder for banks to make

U.S. trade deficit increases


5.3 percent to $37.4 billion
By Martin Crutsinger
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The U.S. trade deficit,


after falling to the lowest point in more than
two years, increased in April as a surge in
imported goods outpaced a rebound in
exports.
The Commerce Department said Friday that
the deficit increased 5.3 percent in April to
$37.4 billion, up from an imbalance of
$35.5 billion in March. Exports increased
1.5 percent to $182.8 billion but imports
rose faster, increasing 2.1 percent to $220.2
billion.
The politically sensitive deficit with China
surged 16.3 percent to $24.3 billion, a development certain to heighten trade tensions
between the worlds two largest economies.
So far this year, the deficit is running 4.8
percent below the pace set a year ago with a
fall in imports offsetting further weakness in
U.S. exports, which have been hurt by a
slowdown in global growth.
U.S. export sales have also been hurt by a
strong dollar which makes American prod-

ucts more expensive on overseas markets.


However, the dollar has weakened a bit since
peaking earlier this year. If that trend continues, it could help export sales going forward.
The deficit for all of 2015 totaled $500.4
billion, up 2.1 percent from the previous
year. The higher deficit subtracted 0.6 percentage point from overall growth in a year
when the economy, as measured by the gross
domestic product, expanded by a modest 2.4
percent.
Steven Ricchiuto, chief economist at
Mizuho bank in New York, said that the April
trade report was weaker than expected and
would likely cause forecasters to trim their
expectations for overall growth in the AprilJune quarter to a rate of 1.5 percent to 1.7 percent, down from 2 percent before the trade
report was released.
Americas perennial trade deficits have
been a topic in this years election campaigns with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump attacking the
Obama administration for failing to protect
American workers from unfair foreign competition.

Quirke, Doi and Amaya: PAL softballs best


By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

If there is one thing the Peninsula


Athletic Leagues softball Players of the
Year have in common is the fact that all
three can simply rake.
Lauren Quirke, PAL Bay Division Player
of the Year out of Hillsdale, along with
Ocean Division Co-Players of the Year
San Mateos Taylor Doi and Sequoias
Allison Amaya combined for a batting
average this year of .538.
There is very little artificial padding in

that number. The three combined for 119


hits and just 31 walks on the season, meaning that they consistently put the ball in
play and, in the game of softball, that is
half the battle.
Quirke just finished up one of the best
two-year spans in recent Bay Division history, earning Co-Player of the Year honors
for the second year in a row. She shared the
honor with Capuchinos Allie Stines last
year as a junior.
Batting in the middle of the Hillsdales
lineup, Quirke was one of the most feared
power hitters in the league. She had 14

extra-base hits among her 41 hits this season, during which she went wire-to-wire to
win the Bay Division batting title with a
.488 average. She reached base in just more
than half her plate appearances and combined with a .750 slugging average had an
eye-popping 1.311 on-base plus slugging
percentage. That is elite level.
The funny thing is, she probably could
have done better, said Hillsdale assistant
coach Michelle Zalba.
Big things have been expected from
Quirke, who was called up to the varsity
team midway through her freshman season,

and she delivered on that potential the last


two years.
We brought her up middle of freshman
year, Zalba said. Being on varsity that
long, I think she knew there were expectations.
And she delivered, helping lead the
Knights to the PAL Bay Division title for
the first time since 2011.
Interestingly enough, Quirkes most
interesting stat is the four triples she hit to
lead the team. Quirke is big and powerful,

Muhammad Ali remained hospitalized


Friday in the Phoenix area, battling respiratory problems serious enough to draw family members to his bedside.
The 74-year-old boxing greats respiratory issues have been complicated by the
Parkinsons that he was diagnosed with in
the 1980s, two people told the Associated
Press a day earlier.
The two spoke separately in describing Alis
condition as being very
concerning to family
members. They declined
to be identified because
they were not speaking
on behalf of the family.
Several of Alis daughMuhammad Ali ters reportedly flew to
Phoenix late Thursday
and early Friday to be with their father.
Laila Ali, herself a former boxing champion, posted a picture Friday afternoon on
Facebook of her father holding her daughter
when she was an infant.
I love this photo of my father and my
daughter Sydney when she was a baby! she
wrote. Thanks for all the love and well
wishes. I feel your love and appreciate it!!
A spokesman for the former heavyweight
champion said in an email Friday that there
was no update on his condition. Spokesman
Bob Gunnell said a day earlier that Ali was in
fair condition and that a brief hospital stay
was expected.
Alis longtime Parkinsons doctor
declined comment when reached by the AP
Thursday night.
I cant really say much more than whats
in the papers, said Dr. Abraham Lieberman
of the Barrow Neurological Institute in
Phoenix.
Ali has been hospitalized several times in
recent years, most recently in early 2015
when he was treated for a severe urinary tract
infection initially diagnosed as pneumonia.
Ali has looked increasingly frail in public
appearances, including April 9 when he

SAN JOSE The San Jose Sharks can


take at least one positive out of losing the
first two games of the Stanley Cup Final in
Pittsburgh.
Despite being severely outplayed for
almost the entire two games, the Sharks
still managed to lose by only one goal with
the game-winner coming in the final three
minutes of Game 1 and in overtime in Game
2.

If the Sharks can somehow neutralize


Pittsburghs decided edge in speed and get
back to playing the style of play that got
them this far for the first time ever they
might be able to get back into the series
when it shifts to San Jose for Game 3 on
Saturday night.
In the playoffs, things are magnified so

Warriors backups bring best in Game 1 Pence to have


By Janie McCauley
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND Shaun Livingston put up


nearly 100 free throws at the end of Fridays
NBA Finals practice, and that is somewhere
around his norm.
Cleveland might have built the most
expensive roster in the
NBA. Way out West,
Golden State developed
arguably the leagues
deepest and best bench
with a group of hardnosed
guys
like
Livingston eager to take
the pressure off starters
Stephen Curry, Klay
Shaun
Thompson and Draymond
Livingston
Green whenever their
names are called.
Or downright outplay the first unit when
necessary on the biggest stage.
This close-knit band of backups regularly
discusses how dependable they must be,
telling each other to stay ready for any role.

When you see a guy down, you make sure


you pick him up and when you see a guy up
make sure you keep him level-headed because,
you never know whats going to be next in
this game, Marreese Speights said Friday.
When were at the gym, its, Come on, lets
go get some shots, or hanging out on the
road we sit down and talk about it, We need
each and every one of these players on this
team to win another championship. Lunch,
dinner, brunch, all that, we talk.
The reliable reserves did just that in a 10489 Game 1 Finals win Thursday night, and the
Cavaliers have to be at least a little bit concerned going into Sundays Game 2 knowing
the Splash Brothers of Curry and Thompson
will start sinking shots again soon enough.
Livingston played nearly 27 minutes in the
opener of the rematch with his former
Cleveland team and made 8 of 10 shots on the
way to a postseason career-best 20 points.
Leandro Barbosa made all five of his shots
for 11 points and 2015 Finals MVP Andre
Iguodala contributed 12 points, seven
rebounds, six assists.
Were not coming in to just give guys rest.

Were coming in to be productive and make


plays and make things happen. Its all about
the mindset, Livingston said. It feels good
to come out of a game like that when our stars
dont have it going and we still get the win.
We believe in each other, and anybody can
step up.
Back to the drawing board for LeBron James
and the Cavs to stop Golden States bench.
Livingston is the one who nine years ago
nearly needed his left leg amputated after a
gruesome knee injury. His comeback from
that frightening 2007 fall suffered while with
the Clippers has inspired Coach of the Year
Steve Kerr.
Going for a layup, the guards leg buckled
backward, parallel to the court, when he fell in
a freak accident. He screamed and writhed in
agony.
Livingston tore three major ligaments in
his knee the anterior cruciate, posterior
cruciate and medial collateral as well as his
lateral meniscus, then required extensive surgery.

Giants take down Cardinals

Giants 5, Cardinals 1

ST. LOUIS Johnny Cueto worked


around a season-worst five walks to post his
ninth win, tying for the major league lead,
as the San Francisco Giants beat the St.
Louis Cardinals 5-1 on Friday night.
Cueto (9-1) allowed a run on four hits in
six innings with one strikeout. He hadnt
walked more than two in any of his first 11
starts for his new team.
Cueto is among four nine-game winners,
joining Stephen Strasburg, Jake Arrieta and
Chris Sale. Six of Cuetos victories have
come on the road.
Five Giants relievers combined to give up
just one hit.
Adam Wainwright (5-4) allowed two runs

in seven innings. The Cardinals were held


to one run for the second straight game.
The Giants bunched three straight twostrike hits in the fourth to take a 2-1 lead,
with RBIs by Brandon Belt and Brandon
Crawford.
Denard Span had a two-run single and
Matt Duffy squeezed home a run in a threerun ninth, capitalizing on three straight
walks to open the inning by Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal.
The NL West leaders are a major leaguebest 18-4 since May 11.
Cueto is 5-0 with a 0.99 ERA his last six
starts, working at least six innings and
allowing two or fewer runs in each of them.

Hed entered 2-4 with a 5.71 ERA in 10 previous starts in St. Louis.
Wainwright had been 5-0 in his previous
seven starts.
Stephen Piscotty had an RBI single in the
third but the Cardinals left the bases loaded
when Randal Grichuk tapped out, with Cueto
making a nice play and throw just in time.

his last outing, allowing four earned runs in
five innings against Atlanta.

against San Francisco. Wacha has lost his
last six decisions.

surgery, out
eight weeks
By R.B. Fallstrom
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ST. LOUIS San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence will undergo surgery for
a right hamstring injury and is likely to be
out eight weeks.
The good news is theres going to be a
lot of season left to play when I come
back, Pence said Friday before the NL West
leaders
played
the
Cardinals. So theres a
lot to look forward to.
That is exciting.
Pence said he felt the
hamstring pop running
to first base trying to
beat out an infield
grounder on Wednesday.
He was helped off the
Hunter Pence field.
Pence said he was told
he had a 50-50 chance of returning if he
skipped surgery and just did rehabilitation
work. But if he did that and re-injured himself, the recovery time would be longer.
It just makes sense to be 100 percent certain, Pence said. Its also supposed to get
you back quicker.
The surgery has not yet been scheduled.
Pence said three doctors weighed in on the
injury.
The 33-year-old Pence was also told the
surgery was fairly routine. He said it was a
relief to know what was ahead of him.
Its the second right hamstring injury in
two weeks for Pence. He topped the team
with 36 RBIs and was second with seven
home runs going into the series at St.
Louis.
Jarrett Parker started in right field and batted eighth against the Cardinals. Mac
Williamson also could get starts in right.

Golf/Tennis briefs
Kuchar, Steele tied
for lead at Memorial
DUBLIN, Ohio Two matches at home
against Phil Mickelson made Brendan Steele
feel inadequate. Two rounds at the Memorial
gave him a share of the lead.
Steele put in a little more work and it paid
off over two days in soft conditions at
Muirfield Village. He had a 5-under 67 on
Friday and was tied for the lead with past
Memorial champion Matt Kuchar (66) going
into a wide-open weekend.
Steele, whose only PGA Tour victory was
in his rookie season five years ago, took the
last two weeks off to attend a wedding, go
fishing with his father and venture over to
San Diego to play a few games with
Mickelson at The Bridges at Rancho Santa
Fe.
The mathematical definition of getting
drummed turned out to be 2 and 1 on the first
day, 5 and 4 on the second day.
He made a quick fix with swing coach Rick
Smith, had time for a few more tweaks, and he
took that straight to the course for solid play
over the last two days. And while there was
nothing at stake, he has Mickelson by five
shots at the moment.
Steele and Kuchar were at 12-under 132, the
same score that led a year ago.
The scoring was so good, however, that the
cut was at 2-under 142, the lowest since Jack

when Zapata volleyed from about 10 yards
out off a corner kick from Edwin Cordona.
With Bradley marking Daniel Torres, Zapata
circled around the pair to get away from
Cameron, and the defender scored his first
goal in 42 international appearances.
Mexican referee Roberto Garcia awarded
the penalty when Yedlin, just inside the
penalty area, jumped and turned to try to
avoid a cross by Farid Diaz but left his right
arm elevated as the ball hit.

No. 1 Djokovic to face


No. 2 Murray in French Open final
PARIS Novak Djokovic is on the
precipice of history once again at the
French Open, reaching the final for the
fourth time in five years at the only major
tournament he hasnt won.
In addition to trying to complete a career
Grand Slam, Djokovic will be hoping to
accomplish something even more rare
winning a fourth consecutive major title,
something that hasnt been done by a man
in nearly a half-century.
On court for the fourth straight day at rainlogged Roland Garros, the No. 1-seeded
Djokovic raced through his semifinal Friday
with a 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 victory over No. 13
Dominic Thiem of Austria.
After a welcome day of rest, he will face
No. 2 Andy Murray in Sundays final.
Murray became the first British man since
1937 to get that far in Paris, ousting defending champion Stan Wawrinka 6-4, 6-2, 4-6,
6-2.
Murray had lost his previous three semifinals at Roland Garros, including a five-setter against Djokovic a year ago.
Djokovic, meanwhile, is 0-3 in title
matches at the French Open, losing to
Rafael Nadal in 2012 and 2014, then
Wawrinka in 2015, each time in four sets.
That loss to Wawrinka was Dokovics most
recent at a major.
American midfielder Alejandro Bedoya,
whose father was born in Colombia, argued
with Garcia to no avail, and Rodriguez fired
a left-footed penalty kick past Guzan, who
had dived the other way, for his 15th goal in
43 appearances. Guzan was picked by
Klinsmann to start in the tournament over
Howard, the Americans goalkeeper at the
last two World Cups.
Dempsey had a shot from the top of the
area that went just wide in the 37th minute,
and his header in the 60th minute off
Bradleys corner kick was cleared off the
line by Sebastian Perez. Dempsey curled a
free kick around a defensive wall in the 60th
minute that was parried by goalkeeper David
Ospina.

Atlanta. Despite the disease he kept up a

busy appearance schedule until recently,


though he has not spoken in public for
years.
Doctors say the Parkinsons likely was
caused by the thousands of punches Ali took
during a career in which he traveled the world
for big fights.
An iconic figure who at one point was perhaps the most recognized person in the
world, Ali has lived quietly in the Phoenix
area with his fourth wife, Lonnie, whom he
married in 1986.
News of his hospitalization brought well
wishes from boxers and others on Twitter,
including Sugar Ray Leonard, who modeled
his career after Alis.

It was during his time with Cleveland at the end of the 201213 season that Livingston began to truly trust his body again.
It was a long road emotionally and physically to reach that
point, so much so that Livingston said it was almost like I was
a retired player.
Now, hes on the court at Oracle Arena all smiles and gearing
up for more in Game 2 when he gets his chance. Free throw after
free throw.
Shaun shoots the most. Thats how he keeps his rhythm,
Kerr said. I think part of that is his injury history. He cant
afford to put a lot of wear and tear on his legs by shooting a ton
of jump shots, so he shoots a ton of free throws.

but athletic and nimble enough from playing water polo and
soccer for the Knights that she is able to scoot around the
bases.
Shes a good base runner. Shes deceptively quick,
Zalba said.
There is no deception in Dois quickness as the San Mateo
senior was the quintessential softball leadoff hitter: great
bat control and can fly on the base paths. Her strengths in
the running game opened up things for her teammates to
have success.
One of her greatest things she brought were her intangibles, said San Mateo coach Brandon Robinson. When she
gets on, the people behind her get better pitches.
Those kinds of things were huge.
There were few who wreaked more havoc than Doi, who

will play in college at Gettsyburg College in Pennsylvania.


She batted a robust .588, rapping out 50 hits in 85 at-bats.
She struck out only three times and stole 13 bases in 14
attempts. She scored 38 runs and drove in 22.
As much of an effect Doi had on the San Mateo offense,
she had an adverse effect on opposing defenses with her
speed and defensively abilities at third base. Robinson said
Doi all but took the bunt away from opposing teams
because, with her speed, she could quickly pounce on balls
around the plate.
Those kind of intangibles dont really get noticed by a
lot of people, Robinson said. They dont show up in the
scorebook.
Amaya, who helped lead Sequoia back to relevancy in the
PALs Ocean Division as well as the division crown, batted
.538 during the regular season, with nearly half of her 28
hits going for extra bases (eight doubles, three triples). She
drove in 28 runs and scored 28 times. She walked 13 times
without striking out and was perfect in the stolen bases
department, going 10 for 10.

Couture: Everyone cheats on faceoffs


By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN JOSE San Jose center Logan


Couture says Sidney Crosby isnt the only
player cheating in faceoffs in the Stanley
Cup Final.
Couture said that he, teammate Joe
Thornton and just about every other player
who gets in the faceoff circle tries for any
sort of edge they can get, legal or otherwise.
Everyone cheats on faceoffs, Couture
said Friday. I cheat, Jumbo cheats. Thats
how you try to win draws. Hes one of the
best at it. He wins a lot of faceoffs.
Couture caused a bit of a storm after Game
2 when he accused Crosby of cheating on
faceoffs. It was a faceoff win by Crosby in
overtime that set up Pittsburghs game-win-

SHARKS
Continued from page 11
have won 33 of 36 series.
But the Penguins know better than to start
planning any parades. Two of those three
teams to rally after losing the first two
games on the road have done it in the past
seven years, including Pittsburgh itself in
2009 against Detroit. Boston also overcame a 2-0 deficit to Vancouver in 2011.
Weve talked about it, said Penguins
captain Sidney Crosby, who played on that
2009 team. You expect a really desperate
hockey team. Theyre only focused on winning one game. All their energy and everything is toward just tomorrow night. Weve
all been in situations where you put all that

ning goal by Conor


Sheary that gave the
Penguins a 2-0 series
lead.
Crosby said he was surprised when he heard the
accusation and said he
doesnt do anything
other players dont do.
I think we are all
Logan Couture
doing the same thing in
the faceoff circle, Crosby said.
Crosby and Couture both said they dont
think this dispute will have any bearing on
Game 3. Crosby said it wont add any fuel
for him and Couture said he wasnt trying to
lobby linesmen to kick Crosby out of the
circle in future games.
Not at all, he said. These guys are the
best in the world at what they do. I have no

complaints of the officials throughout these


playoffs. Theyve been
very, very good.
Pittsburgh coach Mike
Sullivan didnt even want
to respond to Coutures
allegations on Thursday
but does agree with the
Sidney Crosby Sharks center on one
aspect: Everyone is
cheating to an extent.
Thats all part of being a center iceman,
trying to figure out a way to get an edge and
be successful, Sullivan said. Sid isnt
doing anything their guys arent doing.
Crosby won 26 of 40 faceoffs the first two
games, none more important than the clean
win in the offensive zone against Joel Ward
in overtime in Game 2 that set up Shearys

goal.
Couture wasnt in the faceoff circle for
that draw and Ward took the blame on himself for the play.
I just have to be better is the bottom
line, he said.
Couture is one of the few Sharks to hold
his own against Crosby in the faceoff circle
this series, winning four of seven draws.
But San Jose has struggled as a team on
draws this postseason. After winning 50.7
percent of faceoffs in the regular season for
the 10th best mark in the league, the Sharks
are last of all 16 playoff teams at 46.7 percent in the postseason.
You find better centermen out there,
Couture said. Its tough. Its a little part of
the game we want to improve at and be better at but there are bigger aspects of our
game we want to get better at.

energy and all that focus toward one game


and you know they will be at their best.
Outside of a strong second period in the
opener and a good push late in regulation in
Game 2 when San Jose tied the game and
nearly scored the go-ahead goal, the
Penguins have been the better team.
They have a 71-48 edge in shots on goal,
considerably more dangerous scoring
chances and have forced the Sharks defense
into the kinds of mistakes they didnt make
the first three rounds.
Theyve done a good job keeping the
puck in their zone, using their forecheck
and making it tough on us, defenseman
Justin Braun said. Weve had a little trouble
sustaining pressure. Weve been one and
out. Theyve had a couple of chances. Thats
been a big difference.
With Pittsburgh also doing a good job
staying out of the penalty box, San Joses

potent power play has had only three


chances through two games and delivered
one of the teams three goals.
The Sharks say those lack of chances
have been more about their play then the
calls by officials.
Were not giving ourselves that opportunity, center Logan Couture said. Were not
playing with the puck enough. Were not
forcing them to play in their zone tired.
Thats when penalties usually happen, at
the end of long shifts. Its up to us as players to force them to play in their zone.
The Sharks did generate more chances
when coach Peter DeBoer shuffled his lines
in the third period of Game 2, dropping
Patrick Marleau from second-line wing to
third-line center and moving Joel Ward up to
the second line.
He switched them back for practice but did
not say how he would utilize his lines in

Game 3. Top-line winger Tomas Hertl also


missed practice on Friday for what DeBoer
described as maintenance but he didnt
commit to Hertl playing Saturday.
One change that will happen is the shift
in venues. Pittsburgh last played out of the
Eastern Time Zone on Jan. 18 in St. Louis
and hasnt been to the West Coast since
Dec. 6 in Anaheim before Mike Sullivan
took over as coach.
The Sharks will have last change and a
loud crowd behind them for the first Stanley
Cup Final game ever in San Jose.
We expect a really hard start and a good
team, Penguins forward Nick Bonino said.
These last two games have been decided
very late, each one. Theyre a great team.
Theyre going to come out really hard and
well have to match that.

Judge: U.S. womens soccer team has no right to strike


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO A federal judge ruled the world


champion U.S. womens soccer team does not
have the right to strike to seek improved conditions and wages before the Summer
Olympics, seeming to end the prospect of an
unprecedented disruption by one of the most
successful American national teams.
The case pits the U.S. Womens National
Soccer Team Players Association against the
U.S. Soccer Federation, which sued in
February to clarify the strike issue. U.S.
District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman ruled
Friday the team remains bound by a no-strike
provision from its 2005-12 collective bar-

gaining agreement.
The federation warned a strike could have
forced the womens team, which is seeking its
fourth straight Olympic gold medal in Brazil,
to withdraw from the Games and said that
would have damaged American soccer as a
whole.
The union wanted the option of striking,
though it hadnt said definitively that it
would.
The lawsuit focused on strike rights is related to a complaint filed by five players in
March with the federal Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission that alleges wage
discrimination by the federation. Fridays ruling does not directly impact that complaint.

U.S. stars Hope Solo, Alex Morgan, Carli


Lloyd, Becky Sauerbrunn and Megan Rapinoe
say they are paid far less than their counterparts on the mens national team. U.S. Soccer
says that claim is misleading, partly because
the men and women are paid differently under
separate collective bargaining agreements.
During oral arguments before Coleman last
week, the federation said its collective bargaining agreement remains in effect until Dec.
31, while the union says any such agreement
has expired.
The union didnt immediately address
whether it would appeal Colemans decision,
but in a statement to The Associated Press, the
unions executive director, Richard Nichols,

said the ruling didnt affect wider grievances.


To be clear, the courts ruling today does
not negate the fact that U.S. Soccer does not
fairly compensate the womens national team,
or in any way impact the players demands for
equal pay for equal work, he said.
In her 13-page opinion, Coleman said the
union didnt convince her terms of the 200512 collective bargaining agreement including a no-strike clause did not carry over
when the sides signed a memorandum of understanding in March 2013 modifying the previous deal with terms through 2016. Coleman
was dismissive of union arguments that a nostrike provision should have been spelled out
explicitly in the memorandum.

Iraqi military takes a slow approach in battle for Fallujah


By Qassim Abdul-Zahra
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

REUTERS

Iraqi security forces and Shiite fighters fire artillery toward Islamic State militants near Falluja, Iraq.

CAMP TARIQ, Iraq The battle for Fallujah is shaping


up to be unlike any of the other assaults in the Iraqi militarys town-by-town war with the Islamic State group.
In the nearly two weeks since the operation began,
airstrikes have been used sparingly, Shiite militias have so
far been kept to the perimeter, and the initial advance on the
symbolically important town has been slow.
U.S.-trained Iraqi counterterrorism forces, wary of coming street battles in the city, are already facing fierce resistance on the outskirts from well-entrenched militants. Those
fighters are believed to include many foreign jihadis who
are considered better-trained that the ones in towns that
have been retaken in recent months.
In Ramadi the last major victory for Iraqi forces
against IS many of the militants were able to flee to
other strongholds along the Euphrates River valley. Now,
all of that territory has been cleared, and the extremists
have no escape route from Fallujah.
That suggests a long fight for the city less than an hours
drive west of Baghdad.
While Fallujah is smaller in area than Ramadi, an estimated 50,000 people are trapped in the city, twice as many
as were in Ramadi when it was recaptured.
Aid groups say about 1,000 families have managed to flee
the outskirts of Fallujah since the operation began May 22.
But the Norwegian Refugee Council, an international
humanitarian group that does extensive work in Iraqs
Anbar province, says none of the civilians trapped in the
center of the city have made it out.
Residents have told the Associated Press that IS fighters
tightly control all roads in and out of the city and have
threatened to kill anyone who tries to escape.
There is a clear difference between the Fallujah and
Ramadi operations, said Iraqi military Brig. Haider alObeidi.
The terrain is a challenge, he said, because the outskirts
are dotted with orchards and irrigation canals that give IS
fighters working in small mobile units an advantage over
the slow-moving convoys of armored vehicles
The fighters his men are encountering are better trained
than those in pervious battles, al-Obeidi said.

Prince autopsy report hints at puzzling painkiller mystery

The report from the medical examiner


who conducted Princes autopsy is tantalizing for what it doesnt say.
The single-page document lists a fentanyl
overdose as the cause of death, but it offers
few clues to indicate whether the musician
was a chronic pain patient desperately seeking relief, a longtime opioid user whose
habit became an addiction or a combination

Blanks for contributing causes are marked
na for not applicable. A space for other
significant conditions
is also marked na.
Authorities probably
know much more than
they are willing to discuss publicly as they
seek the source of the

fentanyl and consider criminal charges. For


now, details in the report, combined with
whats known about Princes final days,
hint at a fuller picture.
Among those details is a note that
Princes body had scars on the left hip and
right lower leg. The report doesnt say, but
its possible the scars were evidence of past
surgeries for joint pain. At least one friend
has said Prince suffered years of hip and
knee pain from his athletic stage performances.

who got hooked on opioids, said Andrew
Kolodny, director of Physicians for
Responsible Opioid Prescribing. Opioids
lead to tolerance, and some patients seek
out stronger drugs after initial dosages stop
working.
We see far more overdose deaths in middle-aged people receiving legitimate prescriptions, Kolodny said, citing a 2013
study of 250 deaths.
When I look to the future, I know
that Ill make some bad decisions

over the ugly end to their friendship,

S UCCES S FUL B ATTLE AGAINS T
REALITY. In 1945, in a hospital on Long
Island, a young man named Chester Bailey
(Dan Clegg) is recovering from devastating
injuries. He has no memory of what happened to him and uses his imagination to
create a reality that makes his life bearable.
Chesters doctor (David Strathairn) has the
task of making Chester accept the truth
about his past, his present, and his future.
But as the doctor considers his own emotional crutches, he begins to wonder what
might be the greater kindness for this
unusual patient. Chester Bailey, in its
world premiere, is an intensely disturbing
work that leaves the audience to reflect on
how their individual, smaller forms of
denial help cushion the sharp edges of life.
Written by Emmy Award-winning screenwriter Joseph Dougherty. Directed by Ron
Lagomarsino. Ninety minutes without

This project represents a homecoming of

which is set to debut Oct. 16. The toys-tolife franchise mimics real-world figures in
the virtual video game world of Skylands.
Skylanders Imaginators will add 10
crystal-shaped toys to the lineup that can be
used to assemble heroes from scratch by

picking their body parts, wardrobes, voices, superpowers and other attributes onscreen. The various crystals each represent
the different elements found across the
Skylands, such as air, water and light.
From animal heads to armored suits,
Skylanders associate producer Lou
Studdert said there are about 18 sextillion
and growing possible aesthetic combinations of Imaginators.
We dont just want to make the same
game, said Studdert. Were making sure
that every year that were innovating and
pushing forward. As weird as it sounds, kids

now expect their action figures to come to


life in a video game. They didnt five years
ago.
In a demonstration of Imaginators,
Studdert constructed a fiery Skylander with
an itty-bitty noggin and a giant guitar used
to battle bad guys. He declined to comment
if Activision will provide a way for players
to order physical versions of their custom
characters.
That would be cool, he said.
The next Skylanders entry will also add
31 new sensei characters to the roster of
more than 300 heroes that have been

released since the original Spyros


Adventure in 2011. They include reformed
villain Golden Queen and dinosaur-inspired
smasher Tri-Tip.
The creation crystals will cost $10,
while the sensei characters will be priced
at $15.
As with past Skylanders installments,
previously released character figures can be
employed in Imaginators. The air, land
and sea vehicle toys introduced in last
years SuperChargers entry will also work
in an Imaginators multiplayer racing
mode.

over here and cry like a little girl into my
grenade launcher. I just felt so connected
with Lou it was ridiculous. I understood
who she was. It just felt like someone had
got me down. And shes got my surname!
Moyes, who adapted her novel for the
screen, raised an eyebrow when director
Thea Sharrock mentioned that she was
interested in the actress for the role of Lou
Clark, knowing her only from Game of
Thrones. In the book, Lou is an ordinary,
happy-go-lucky, small-town girl whose
life gets upended when she takes a sorely
needed job working for a handsome, deeply
depressed man, Will, who was recently paralyzed. In other words, Lou is a million
miles away from Khaleesi, Sharrock said.
But Sharrock, a noted English theater
director making her feature debut with Me
Before You, had spotted something in
Clarke one of some 300 actresses shed
seen for the role and her sparkling

FILM
Continued from page 19
2014 tearjerker The Fault in Our Stars,
this film version, directed by Thea
Sharrock, probably is a slam dunk for the
books fans, who will likely be crying from
the first scene.
For the rest of us, its a bit of a harder sell.
Certainly, the couple at the center of the
heartbreak is appealing; both Emilia Clarke
(Game of Thrones) and Sam Claflin (The
Hunger Games) have beautiful smiles.
But especially in the case of Clarke, that
smile a very wide one is relied upon
way too much, with the camera often lingering for long seconds during which we could
actually have been, say, learning something more about her character.

chemistry test with Sam Claflin solidified


it.
Claflin and Clarke had a little bit of an
advantage on this front. The two actors had
met years before on a photo shoot when
both were recent drama school grads whod
just scored their first big roles. Theyd
since been called in for a number of chemistry reads over the years, usually making
sure to catch up over a beer after, but for
various reasons, it hadnt yet worked out.
Perhaps it was worth the false starts,
though one of those would-be projects
was Jack the Giant Killer.
It was absolutely clear the second they
were together that there was an instant
respect and trust between them that was
palpable. They just liked each other,
Sharrock said. When I showed (Jojo) the
tape of her and Sam she was in absolute
floods of tears. That was the moment when
she knew it was going to be OK.
And then they were off in bringing this
devastating and uplifting love story to the
big screen with unusually supportive partners behind them in New Line and MetroGoldwyn-Mayer Pictures. Warner Bros.
even slotted the classic romance for a

prime summer release, squashed between


the sequels, superheroes, and ninja turtles.
They knew what they had and they knew
it was different from what everyone else
was doing, Sharrock said. You have to
really give them credit for believing in the
story to such an extent that they stuck with
it absolutely all the way. And they let me
cast who I wanted to cast rather than the
most famous people in the world.
Sharrock wanted the film to feel like one
huge breath.
Theres a modern day Merchant Ivory
quality to this. I wanted for it to look very
smooth and accessible, but also to have
almost a fairy tale quality. I mean, theres a
castle in the heart of this! she said, referring to Wills familys expansive English
estate.
She and her two leads made time for a few
months of rehearsals prior to shooting to
get the story and characters just right.
I wanted to start out somewhere almost
where you could feel the claustrophobia of
her life or him in his annex to the journey
of getting him outside and beyond that,
Sharrock said.
For Claflin, there was also the added

challenge of having to play believable


quadriplegic.
I was constantly reminding myself not
to move, not to comfort her with my
body, Claflin said. This job had no end
to its challenges for me. It was very physically demanding. I was always manipulating my body and contracting my neck muscles and shoulder muscles to try to make
him look slimmer and a little more ill, and
then at the same time holding my fingers
in a specific way that I hope was doing the
disability justice.
Clarke had the opposite problem, and
actually found herself starting to dress and
act like Lou in real life. Sharrock even
included a few takes in the final cut where
Clarke says she was actually talking as
herself and not as Lou.
Crying was another thing, though.
While Clarke loves a good tearjerker
(Stepmom and My Best Friends
Wedding are some favorites), she was a
little less than thrilled with her own onscreen waterworks.
I look horrific when I cry! No one told
me I do this weird chin thing! Clarke said.
We cant all be Julia Roberts.

Clarke plays Louisa, an amiable cafe waitress in an English town. We meet her on the
day she loses her job, throwing her struggling extended family into turmoil. Louisa
or Lou, as shes called has few skills
but manages to get an interview at the grand
Traynor estate.
It turns out the job entails caring for the
son of the family, Will. Weve met Will in
the prologue; he was a dashing, supremely
handsome London banker with a taste for
extreme sports when one day, he left home
(and his sexy blonde girlfriend) and was hit
by a motorcycle, paralyzing him from the
neck down.
After a brief interview with Wills mother
(the excellent Janet McTeer), Lou gets the
job. Her task will be to provide cheer, since
Wills medical needs are already tended to by
a nurse (though the movie shows hardly any
of this). But Will is bitter and mostly silent.
He first greets Lou with a naughty My Left

Foot impression, then proceeds to either


ignore her or toss barbs about her whimsically wacky wardrobe, which includes leprechaun shoes (a trait of Lous that is cute,
until it gets annoying.)
But Lou is determined, and soon enough
(too soon, dramatically speaking) Will is
submitting to the warmth of her smile. He
introduces her to films with subtitles. She
gets him to come outside in the sun. She
takes him to the horse races. She even gets
him to attend a fancy concert; like Julia
Roberts at the opera in Pretty Woman, its
her first such experience, and she cries.
(Also like Roberts, she wears a glamorous
red dress.)
Will attends Lous family birthday dinner.
He even asks her to join him at the wedding
of the former girlfriend who left him (it
remains unexamined why Will would want
to make this journey.) There, love seems to
bloom between the two.

But Lou also discovers a truth that horrifies her: Will has been exploring the possibility of assisted suicide for months.
Devastated, Lou resolves to show him that
life is worth living. She brings him on an
idyllic beach holiday.
The choice Will ultimately makes wont
be revealed here. The movie has been criticized by some in the disabled community
for suggesting, in their view, that death
might be better than life as a quadriplegic.
In any case, the filmmakers seem to have
missed an opportunity to deal in a sophisticated way with a thorny, important subject.
Still, youll probably cry anyway. Its
that kind of film.
Me Before You, a Warner Bros. release,
is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture
Association of America for thematic elements and some suggestive material.
Running time: 110 minutes. Two stars out
of four.

with a quarter-million high school dropouts
losing their jobs in May. That has perpetuated a long-term trend toward a two-tiered
job market, with college-educated adults
more likely to be employed and earning
steady raises.
The shockingly low payrolls gain in
May provides further evidence that the
economy is showing clear signs of slowing, said Laura Rosner, an economist at
BNP Paribas.
The much-weaker-than-expected figure
raised doubts that the Federal Reserve will
increase short-term interest rates at its next
meeting in mid-June or perhaps even at its
subsequent meeting in July. Many analysts
had expected an increase by July.
On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial
average closed down 32 points, for a loss
of 0.2 percent.
The disappointing report spilled into the
presidential race, with Donald Trump referring to it on Twitter as a terrible jobs
report and a bombshell. The figures

quite some time, said Sung Won Sohn,
economist at California State University
Channel Islands.
Complicating the picture, though, is that
other reports suggest that jobs remain
plentiful or at least secure. Applications
for unemployment benefits a reflection
of the pace of layoffs fell again last week
and have stayed below 300,000, a historically low number, for 65 straight weeks,
the longest such streak since 1973.
And the government reported last month
that job openings totaled nearly 5.8 million in March, the most since July. That
kind of figure is normally a sign of a robust
job market.

CONSUMERS
Despite the slumping job growth,
American consumers so far appear unfazed.
At least by the most recent barometer, that
is: Consumer spending surged in April by
the most in more than six years. That is
especially important because consumer

come just days after President Barack


Obama touted his economic record in
Elkhart, Indiana.
Americans particularly worried about the
economy have been more likely to support
outsider candidates such as Trump and
Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Trumps support has also come disproportionately from adults without college
degrees, and Fridays report served as a
stark reminder that less-educated Americans
have continued to lose economic ground
even as overall hiring and growth have
picked up since the Great Recession.
Essentially all of the 7 million jobs
added over the past decade belong to workers with at least some college experience.
The number of high school graduates with
jobs is 3 million lower than 10 years ago.
The high school jobs are gone and
theyre not coming back, said Anthony
Carnevale, director of the Georgetown
University Center on Education and
Workforce. Its driven by a fundamental
shift from an industrial economy to a postindustrial economy.
Craig Lloyd, 27, has mostly worked parttime jobs in restaurants in Wichita,
Kansas, since graduating from high school
10 years ago. Some paid as little as mini-

mum wage, while his most recent position


as a sous-chef paid $12 an hour.
Three months ago, he started his own
business selling burritos out of a friends
food truck on weekends.
His wife is returning to school to get her
degree, but he doesnt plan to do so himself. Ive really put off getting a higher
education, because of the debt that you can
incur, Lloyd said.
The hiring stall could be temporary,
economists noted. There have been hiring
lulls before in the seven-year recovery.
But job gains in March and April were
also revised downward on Friday, leaving
average monthly hiring at a pace of just
116,000 in the past three months. Thats
sharply below last years average of nearly
230,000.
The share of Americans who are working
or searching for jobs a figure known as
the labor force participation rate fell in
May to 62.6 percent, near a four-decade
low.
Separately, Lael Brainard, a Fed board
member and ally of Chair Janet Yellen, signaled Friday that the Fed should be in no
hurry to act, especially after the bleak jobs
report.
The Fed meets next on June 14-15.

Economists now see little chance of a rate


increase at that time. The Fed raised the
short-term rate last December after holding
it at nearly zero for seven years.
Fed officials may not keep investors
guessing for long: Yellen will speak
Monday in a closely watched address that
may show how she has interpreted Fridays
report.
The May job gain was lowered by the
Verizon workers strike, which depressed
hiring in the telecom sector by 37,000.
In addition, manufacturers, construction
companies and temporary help agencies all
shed jobs. Retailers, hotels and restaurants
added jobs, but at a slower pace than in
recent months.
Employers probably cut back on hiring
after the economy grew at just a 0.8 percent
annual rate in the January-March quarter.
Yet Fridays dismal jobs report was a surprise in part because most recent economic
reports have been encouraging: Consumer
spending surged in April. Home sales and
construction have also increased. Sales of
new homes reached an eight-year high in
April.
Most economists expect growth will
rebound in the April-June quarter to about a
2.5 percent annual pace.

spending accounts for about 70 percent of


U.S. economic activity.
Low gasoline and historically low borrowing rates have encouraged people to
spend. In a speech Friday, Lael Brainard, a
member of the Feds Board of Governors,
called those spending figures encouraging but cautioned that the data relevant
for second-quarter growth are still relatively sparse.
Can consumer spending prove resilient
even if the job market continues to lose
vigor?
Maybe not: The Conference Board reported Tuesday that its index of consumer confidence fell last month to its lowest level
since November.

struggled with economic weakness abroad


and a stronger dollar, which made their
goods pricier overseas. The dollar has fallen against major currencies since late
January, thereby giving factories some
relief.
But the ISM manufacturing report wasnt
quite as rosy as it looked. New orders and
production grew more slowly in May. Only
an increase in deliveries from suppliers
buoyed the index.
Likewise,
an
impressive-looking
increase in orders to U. S. factories in
April the best in six months came
mainly from the volatile commercial aircraft industry. Aircraft orders can fluctuate
wildly from month to month. Orders in a
more crucial category that tracks business
investment plans actually fell, the gov-

ernment said Friday.

MANUFACTURERS

SERVICES
Services companies have been a source of
U.S. economic strength. And ISM reported
Friday that the service sector expanded in
May for a 76th straight month.
But growth was the slowest in more than
two years. And a measure of employment
fell for the second time this year. Steve
Murphy, U. S. economist at Capital
Economics, said the ISMs findings were
clearly disappointing ... The underlying
details of the report were weak across the
board.
And that weakness was reflected in
Fridays jobs report: Service sector jobs
increased by just 61,000 in May, the fewest
since June 2012.

Recent reports suggest that American


manufacturing is picking up strength. Yet
the details arent so clear.
A survey released this week by the
Institute for Supply Management showed
that American manufacturing has expanded
for three straight months: The institutes
manufacturing index rose to 51.3 in May,
and anything above 50 signals growth.
The index had been stuck below 50 from
October through February as factories
ket on Sundays and that there is limited
parking downtown.
Others said downtown is easy to navigate
now on Sundays but will get more difficult
with the added congestion, Bouchard reported to the City Council previously.
The market will accommodate about 60
vendors a week and up to 40 vendors a week
during the winter months.
The chamber was granted a special event
permit on a pilot basis for one year to allow
it to make adjustments throughout the year
to suit the needs of downtown businesses
and the community.
A plan to coordinate outdoor dining with
restaurants downtown will be tackled in the
future.

study sessions on development standards for single-family homes and


subdivisions.
Recently, residents have complained that new single-family houses
constructed in the city are too big and
out of character with surrounding
homes, according to a staff report by
Principal Planner Lisa Porras.
They have also complained about
how larger lots zoned for single
homes have been subdivided into two
lots allowing for property owners to
demolish the first home and construct
two new ones, according to a second
staff report by Porras.
Both the City Council and Planning
Commission requested planning staff
to schedule public meetings to begin a
dialogue with residents, builders,
architects and home designers on the
standards.
The 2011 zoning changes allows
property owners to build on 50 percent
of their lots rather than 40 percent
its called maximum lot coverage.
The decision was to allow property
owners of many of the citys smaller
lots, about 4,000 square feet, to be
able to improve their homes on par
with property owners who have larger
lots, according to the report by
Porras.
Allowing for greater lot coverage
also allows for owners to construct
accessory dwelling units, like cottages, on the lot.
The aim of the changes were to promote flexibility and to clarify the
rules for property owners wishing to

invest in improvements for their


homes, according to the report.
Over the past five years, a total of
55 new single-family homes were
approved by the citys Residential
Design Review Committee.
In 2014, the average size of
approved homes was 3, 913 square
feet. In 2016, the average size of
approved homes was 4, 165 square
feet.
The city has received numerous
emails and correspondence from residents complaining about homes being
too big although others say the zoning changes should stay as is.
My general feelings is that the
City Council is so focused on growth
to increase tax revenues that they are
losing sight of the true meaning of the
City of Good Living, which to me
means open spaces between the houses as well as parks, not having minimansions filling up lots blocking out
the sun from other neighbors yards
and their windows gazing into their
neighbors private areas robbing them
of any remaining sense of privacy,
Linda Ferreira wrote in an email to the
City Council May 31.
She said she tried to do a small
remodel on her home about 10 years
ago but was denied that her lot was
already overdeveloped.
Porras received an email from
Connie Walikonis who said she feels
that homes in the city are getting too
large.
Large homes are fine on large lots
but it seems that some really big

Instead, Freschet suggested the
small business definition be expanded

Raising the minimum wage is certainly one thing we can do to mitigate
the extraordinary cost of living here,
but we need to be extremely cautious of
doing anything to disadvantage our
local economy and services, Freschet
wrote in an email. Im particularly
concerned that the revitalization of our
downtown, which is largely dependent
on restaurants, would be adversely
impacted.
Ann Fienman, executive director of

Molly Ziman wrote the council to ask


it to keep the zoning changes from
2011 in place.
Most families that I know have
multiple generations living in their
homes and need the additional space,
Ziman wrote.
When it comes to subdividing lots,
the 2011 zoning changes allow for
lots 10,000 square feet or larger to
subdivide into minimum sizes of
5,000 square feet depending on the
slope of the lot.
Since
2011,
the
Planning
Commission has approved six subdivisions including a 41, 637-squarefoot lot at 1336 Arroyo Ave. that
allowed for the construction of three
new homes. In total, the six split lots
have generated nine new homes in the
city since 2011, according to a report
by Porras.
A 10,504-square-foot lot at 2115
White Oak Way was split in two and
generated one of the new homes. Other
subdivisions were approved for Club
Drive, Eaton and Carmelita avenues.
Of the about 8,200 single-family
lots in the city, about 1,750 of them
sit on lot sizes of 10,000 square feet
or more, according to the report.
Many, however, are lots as steep as
20 percent which would limit their
ability to be split.
The City Council will hear the same
presentations essentially on subdivision and single-family home standards at its July 11 meeting.

increase, over several years instead of
18 months, would enable businesses
to plan for and better absorb the
increased costs without destabilizing
their operations.
While a survey conducted by the city
and Chamber of Commerce highlighted that several proprietors feared
theyd go out of business if the city
were to enact increases, $15 per hour
appears to be an inevitable future once
Gov. Jerry Brown agreed to get there
by 2022.
Goethals noted he too had spoken
with many business representatives
and owners who expressed concerns.
While many other cities in California
and other states have enacted similar
laws with a variety of exemptions for
small businesses, Goethals noted it
will be important to define it appropriately to reflect San Mateos demographics.
I believe that most of the businesses in San Mateo are small businesses.
So if we made it 50 [employees], it
would protect a lot of our small businesses. And most of our
employees actually work for
big companies, so it would
have a dual effect of protecting most employers and
most employees, Goethals
said.
Ultimately, Goethals and
Freschet noted they hope
other cities in the county
and region will follow in
raising wages to better
reflect the cost of living and
deter competition between
businesses in various communities.
My hope is we will be
one of many cities in San
Mateo County to have taken
an action on this, Goethals
said. Then we can work
together to make it a regional effort.

BEIRUT U.S.-backed fighters pushed ahead in their


offensive in northern Syria on Friday, getting closer to a
stronghold of the Islamic State group, opposition activists
said.
The predominantly Kurdish Syria Democratic Forces took
at least four more villages on the way to the IS-held city of
Manbij, according to two activist groups, the Britain-based
Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local
Coordination Committee.
A Russia- and U.S.-brokered truce in Syria began on Feb.
27, but fighting has continued to rage in many areas, particularly around the city of Aleppo, trapping civilians in
the cross-fire between government and opposition forces.
Syrias 5-year civil war has left some 250,000 people dead.
On Wednesday, SDF fighters, aided by U.S.-led airstrikes,
launched their offensive on Manbij, which is on a key supply route linking the Turkish border to the city of Raqqa,
the extremist groups de facto capital.
Some 20 IS fighters and four from the SDF have been
killed in three days of fighting, the Observatory said. It
said that 28 villages are now under SDF control. The group
said Abu Layla, the commander of one of the SDF factions
known as Shams al-Shammal, was seriously wounded and
evacuated to hospital in neighboring Iraq.
The fighting comes as the United Nations Security
Council announced Friday it will formally ask Syria to
allow humanitarian air drops to besieged areas. U.N.
humanitarian chief Stephen OBrien warned that access to
millions of Syrians in need of help is worsening amid the
violence.

PARIS The swollen Seine River kept rising Friday,


spilling into Paris streets and forcing one landmark after
another to shut down as it surged to its highest levels in nearly 35 years. Across the city, museums, parks and cemeteries
were being closed as the city braced for possible evacuations.
The Seine was expected to peak in Paris sometime later
Friday at about 5 meters (16 feet, 3 inches) above normal.
Authorities shut the Louvre museum, the national library, the
Orsay museum and the Grand Palais, Paris striking glassand-steel topped exhibition center.
We evaluate the situation for all the (cultural) buildings
nearly hour-by-hour, said Culture Minister Audrey Azouley,
speaking to journalists outside the world-famous Louvre.
We dont know yet the evolution of the level of the Seine
River in Paris.
At the Louvre, home to Leonardo da Vincis Mona Lisa,
curators were scrambling to move some 250,000 artworks
from basement storage areas at risk of flooding to safer areas
upstairs.
Nearly a week of heavy rain has led to serious flooding
across a swathe of Europe, leaving 16 people dead and others
missing.
Although the rain has tapered off in some areas, floodwaters are still climbing and could take weeks to clear. Traffic in
the French capital was snarled as flooding choked roads and
several Paris railway stations shut down.
Basements and apartments in the capitals well-to-do 16th
district began to flood Friday afternoon as the river crept
higher, and authorities were preparing possible evacuations
in a park and islands on Paris western edge.
French authorities activated preliminary plans to transfer
the French presidency, ministries and other sensitive sites to
secure places in case of flooding. The SGDSN security agency
says the French presidency and the prime ministers office
are not immediately threatened but the National Assembly
and the Foreign Ministry were at greater risk.
In addition to the Louvre, the Orsay museum, home to a
renowned collection of impressionist art on the left bank of
the Seine, was also closed Friday as was the Grand Palais,
which draws 2.5 million visitors a year.
The Louvre said the museum had not taken such precautions
in its modern history since its 1993 renovation at the
very least. Disappointed tourists were being turned away but
most were understanding.
Its good that they are evacuating the paintings. Its a
shame that we couldnt see them today, but its right that they
do these things, said Carlos Santiago, visiting from
Mexico.
Elsewhere in Europe, authorities were counting the cost of
the floods as they waded through muddy streets and waterlogged homes.
German authorities said the body of a 65-year-old man was
found in the town of Simbach am Inn and a 72-year-old man
died of a heart attack after being rescued from a raging stream
in the village of Triftern, bringing the countrys death toll
from recent flooding to 11.
