Cities oppose disbanding redevelopment agencies

Local officials call Gov. Browns state budget plan illegal

Gov. Jerry Brown and state lawmakers are being called desperate, stupid, incompetent, wasteful and inefcient by local ofcials who oppose the disbanding of redevelopment agencies across the state to bridge a $9.6 billion budget decit. The League of California Cities is

A zero tolerance holiday

San Bruno,Pacifica gearing up for a safe Independence Day
By Heather Murtagh

The state budget plan to cut $350 million from the judicial branch means signicantly longer waits for civil trials and small claims cases, reduced service hours and priority given to criminal matters, said the administrative head of the local courts. County ofcials yesterday were still crunching numbers on how the $86 billion state budget passed Tuesday trickles down to local coffers. The courts, which are not a county department, are a little more clear and Court Executive Ofcer John Fitton said its not pretty. The very fabric of justice as we know it is being changed. This is the very example of justice delayed is

justice denied, Fitton said. The local court already lost $2 million in cuts and anticipates a $3 million loss out of the $150 million state plan included in John Fitton the budget. The state previously announced a $200 million cut. Fitton said another $4 million is in the works for next year a total of $9 million. For a court with a $50 million annual budget, the loss is signicant, he said. The court workforce is down 25 percent and Fitton said he and other

State delays cap and trade

Californias major polluters have extra year to comply with new greenhouse regulations
By Jason Dearen

Those celebrating our nations independence still need to follow the rules and two San Mateo County cities that allow fireworks are enforcing a zero tolerance policy when it comes to breaking them. San Bruno and Pacica are the only cities in San Mateo County that allow the sale of reworks. They are also the only cities in which those reworks can be used. All police and re staff in both cities will work this holiday. As it was last year, both cities will enforce a $1,000 ne for possession of up to 25 pounds of

SAN FRANCISCO California regulators on Wednesday said they would give power plants, reneries and other major polluters another year to comply with a new state program that provides nancial incentives to emit fewer greenhouse gases. Mary Nichols, chairwoman of the Air Resources Board, said in testimony before a state Senate commit-

tee that the government is giving Californias major polluters until 2013 to comply with its cap-and-trade program. Most polluters Mary Nichols previously were to have begun cutting emissions under the program

Strange but True

Colorado man spends 15 hours in air-conditioning vent
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. A 28-yearold Colorado man was rescued dusty but alive after he was trapped nearly 15 hours in an air-conditioning vent. Englewood police say they responded to calls for help Tuesday from the roof of an elementary school, where they discovered a man trapped 30 feet down the vent. Fireghters had to cut open the vent to pull the man out. The Denver Post reports that the man, who wasnt identied, told police he stole a friends purse Monday night and threw it on the roof. When he climbed onto the roof to get the purse, he fell into the vent and became stuck. Brown and 21-year-old Tatiana Vargas. The two are jailed in Lawrence County on robbery charges and on warrants for unrelated crimes.

The slow-motion stampede began about 6:45 a.m., and within three hours there were so many turtles on Runway 4L and nearby taxiways that controllers were forced to move departing flights to another runway. We ceded to Mother Nature, said Ron Marsico, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the airport. Workers from the Port Authority and the U.S. Department of Agriculture were scooping up turtles and moving them across the airport, he said. Flight delays averaged about 30 minutes, the FAA said. The migration of diamondback terrapin turtles happens every year at Kennedy, which is built on the edge of Jamaica Bay and a federally protected park. In late June or early July the animals heave themselves out of the bay and head toward a beach to lay their eggs. The peak of the turtle trouble usually lasts a few days, Marsico said. Several pilots, some of them stifling chuckles, began reporting turtles on Runway 4L just as the morning rush hour was beginning at JFK, according to a radio recording posted on LiveATC.net. Be advised 30 feet into the takeoff roll, left side of the centerline, theres another turtle, called the pilot of American Airlines Flight 1009, a Boeing 767 that had just taken off for the Dominican Republic.

Couple hitched in hospital after groom fall

ERIE, Pa. A love-sick Pennsylvania couple ended up getting hitched in a hospital chapel after the groom tumbled down a set of stairs on their wedding day. The Erie Times-News reports Derek and Cassy McBride were married Saturday at Saint Vincent Health Center because Derek took the wrong kind of plunge a few hours earlier. The wedding appeared doomed when tests showed Derek McBride had three broken ribs and a punctured, collapsed lung. But family and Saint Vincent nurses stepped up, decorating the chapel with medical glove balloons and bows made of gauze. Guests were told the beach wedding was scrapped. Cassy McBride, whose maiden name was Messenger, wore her gown. Derek had one too a hospital one, under his tuxedo. Derek McBride hopes to be released soon.

City setting new wages for firefighters

Belmont moves closer to establishing stand-alone department
By Bill Silverfarb

Police reports
No shirt, no shoes, no dice
A young man was seen in swim shorts and no shirt, looking for a hot girl on the 2000 block of Crystal Springs Road in San Bruno before 3:27 p.m. Sunday, June 26.

Fire salaries
Base monthly salary for the new department is proposed to be: Fire chief $13,799 Battalion chief $8,812 Fire captain $7,809 Fireghter $5,233 Some reghters could earn as much as $7,436 a month depending on experience.
Belmont Mayor Coralin Feierbach is hopeful the new department will resemble the current one when it comes to its employees. Wed like to keep as many of the current reghters as possible, Feierbach said. The mayor, however, is not interested in competing with San Carlos over the current crop of reghters. Belmont hired Doug Fry to lead its new department. He retired as re chief from the Belmont-San Carlos Fire Department in May after nearly 35 years of service and is expected to stay on with the department into 2012 as the city looks for a permanent re chief. The re board set the new departments budget at $8.5 million at its June 8 meeting, with personnel costs accounting for $4.8 million of that. The city is bound to pay legacy

Belmont ofcials are set to establish a new salary and benets plan for a stand-alone re department come October that includes a 10 percent reduction in wages from what reghters currently make with the Belmont-San Carlos Fire Department. Retirement benets will also be skewed lower for new hires to the department, if the Belmont Fire Protection District board approves the plan at its July 12 meeting. Fireghters who possess previous service with the Belmont-San Carlos Fire Department will be eligible for the 3 percent at 55 formula benets package with the California Public Employee Retirement System. New hires, however, will only be eligible for the 2 percent at 50 formula for CalPERS benets. The salary and benets plan also covers overtime, special assignment pay, vacation, sick leave, holidays, medical care, retiree health, life insurance, dental, vision and work period policies. The average pay for reghters will be $5,233 per month, but some more experienced reghters can make $7,436 per month.

costs, however, related to the dissolution of the current department in October. Legacy costs include accrued vacation and sick time and other benets. The two cities provide re service currently under a joint-powers agreement. San Carlos sought to dissolve the agreement, however, after its share to fund the department went up signicantly under a formula that takes into account population, calls for service and assessed property value. San Carlos is currently forming a hybrid department in a partnership with Redwood City. Belmont, too, will also partner with Redwood City to share a re marshal and for training activities. Councilman Warren Lieberman, who pushed for keeping the current department intact, said the transition to form a stand-alone department will still not be easy despite the city and reghters working well together. It has been a tense situation for everyone, Lieberman said. There has been a lot of turmoil and anxiety but I think there is a lot of good will with the reghters going forward.

San Bruno to decide Builder jailed for bad business practices on $40M school bond
November ballot looks to be heavy with similar measures in other districts
By Heather Murtagh

Updated classrooms, covered walkways with solar panels and new technology are part of the goals the San Bruno Park Elementary School District hopes to achieve with a $40 million bond measure the board decided to put before voters in November. Wednesday evening, the district Board of Trustees voted 4-0-1, with Trustee Jim Prescott absent, to put a $40 million bond measure with a rate of up to $30 per $100,000 of a propertys assessed value on the Nov. 8 ballot. The board previously voted 4-1, with Prescott dissenting, to put such a measure on a special June 7 ballot. Since there was no state election, the board needed to vote to put it on the November ballot instead, said board President Jennifer Blanco. Such a tax requires a 55 percent passage rate. A bond measure could be used for

a number of projects such as the second phase of upgrades to P a r k s i d e Intermediate School, field and playground replacement and David Hutt repairs of underground infrastructure, said Superintendent David Hutt. The proposed project list also includes upgrading technology, investing in a solar and other energy-saving projects and replacing out-of-date systems. The district is currently funding a solar program to place panels on the rooftops at several sites. Using money from the previous sale of the Carl Sandburg school site, the work for this project is under way. The new bond would allow the district to further these efforts by adding cov-

The builder and former Green Building Exchange CEO accused of bilking two Pacica homeowners of thousands of dollars through incomplete home projects was sentenced to 18 months in jail and ordered to pay more than $400,000 in restitution. A prosecutor argued that Michael George Schaeffer, 52, deserved two years and eight months in prison but Judge Jack Grandsaert opted for a lesser jail term followed by three years of supervised probation. He must also pay one homeowner $269,231.33 and the other $132,813.00. Schaeffer, who had

been out on a $50,000 bail bond, was immediately taken into custody. A jury convicted Schaeffer April 15 of two felony counts of Michael diverting funds Schaeffer and misdemeanor counts of contracting without a license and accepting a down payment greater than $1,000. Prior to jury deliberations, the judge granted the defense request to dismiss two counts of felony grand theft.

Prosecutors say Schaeffer collected thousands of dollars for the two remodels but abandoned the projects before completion. One house was gutted to the point of being uninhabitable and another renovated without permits, according to the District Attorneys Ofce. Schaeffer made a splash in local sustainable building circles with his own contracting work and as CEO of the Green Building Exchange in Redwood City. A year after opening, the exchange led for bankruptcy, claiming nearly $1 million in debt, and moved out of Redwood City. Schaeffer is also facing a similar court trial in Santa Clara County.

Drunk,nude pan-waver wants treatment,not jail


See BOND, Page 20

An intoxicated, nude, frying panwaving Redwood City man who fought with police trying to subdue him wants mental health treatment rather than jail. Robert Filipovich, 29, pleaded no contest to felony assault on an ofcer and misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest and being drunk in public on April 9. He faces up to six months in jail but Judge Mark Forcum will also consider at a July

8 hearing sending Filipovich to the Pathways Mental Health Court program instead. Pathways is a treatment alternative to incarceration. Police arrested Filipovich after responding to the Beech Street residence he shared with a female roommate. The woman, who is black, said she returned home to find an intoxicated, naked Filipovich breaking items and screaming that he hates black people. When police entered the home, Filipovich ran outside to the drive-

way wearing an open robe and waving a frying pan. He fought with ofcers trying to arrest him, kicking and reaching for ones Taser, until being restrained with a Wrap. After his arrest, Filipovich reportedly asked ofcers to cut off his head. At the hospital, he screamed at nurses and masturbated, according to the District Attorney Ofce. Officers reported finding four empty liquor bottles in the home. Filipovich remains in custody in lieu of $40,000 bail.

Who Are private HEROES ? How Firefighters Set Example

By Paul Larson
MILLBRAE Firefighters are public HEROES! In the way that members of our Military travel to foreign war zones and risks their own lives in the name of preventing terrorism and in the way our Police Officers enter a sketchy part of town to apprehend suspects whove harmed others and may do more harm the same goes for our Firefighters who are trained to enter potentially explosive situations to prevent the spread of fires and rescue those caught in hazardous peril. These public HEROES touch our lives on a daily basis, most times without our knowledge. Our general safety and well-being can be attributed to the day to day actions of our public HEROES. With the recent joint-funeral for the two San Francisco Firefighters who died in the line of duty it is important to acknowledge their lives and say thank you. These public HEROES had a natural inclination to help others above their own selves. Their efforts to serve the public were of great value, and that value is to be remembered and admired. Just like we learn from the funerals of our public HEROES, we can learn from the funerals of those who have touched our personal lives our private HEROES. Family, friends, local acquaintances and even those we know of but dont know personally have the ability to affect us in ways we may not be consciously aware. We ourselves also have the potential to affect the lives of others in ways were not aware. A single act of kindness; the opening of a door; a caring gesture; a supportive word; an offer to help; volunteering in a service club; etc. all set examples for others to emulate and absorb as a part of their own life-experience. Both public HEROES and private HEROES enrich our lives and help us as individuals to be little bit better. When ever we attend a funeral (the deceased being present) or memorial (the deceased not being present) we always learn about how the deceased affected the lives of others. Also, our attendance not only shows the family that we care, but in a positive way can affect the familys healing process. To us what may seem a small caring gesture may be an enormous life moment to the person we are affecting. We never know how we affect the lives of others but its a fact that we do so every day. These kind acts, unconscious and conscious, along with other small acts potentially make us each a private HERO in the eyes of those weve affected. It doesnt matter how minor youve touched somebodys life it matters that they were able to take something away and enrich their own life with your kind act. Just like public HEROES whose actions affect our daily well-being, private HEROES have the power to positively affect the lives of their family, friends, and those they interact with on a daily basis. When our work on earth is done and our lives conclude we each can be remembered as a private HERO for the way we touched the lives of those weve left behind. If you ever wish to discuss cremation, funeral matters or want to make preplanning arrangements please feel free to call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650) 588-5116 and we will be happy to guide you in a fair and helpful manner.

The Belmont City Council failed to approve an increase to the citys sewer charges at its meeting Tuesday night. Residents were notied the city was considering an 8 percent increase to the charge and a public hearing was set for Tuesday. The ordinance needed four yes

votes to pass but only got three. Mayor Coralin Feierbach and Councilman Dave Warden voted against the increases. The San Bruno City Council Monday approved a status quo budget. Previous cuts remain in place, but no additional reductions are planned in the $31.89 million budget. San Bruno city ofcials are projecting expenditures to be $32.24 million. The $346,500 deficit will be covered using money saved in previous years, according to a staff report by City Manager Connie Jackson.



At his rst White House news conference in three months, lasting a little over an hour, Obama also called on Congress to renew a payroll tax cut that took effect on Jan 1, one of several steps he said lawmakers can take quickly to help reduce 9.1 percent unemployment. Although he declined to announce support for legalizing gay marriage, he defended his record on rights for homosexual Americans, saying he had done more to advance their cause than any of his 43 presidential predecessors. On the decit and economy, Obama said both parties must be prepared to take on their sacred cows as part of the negotiations, with Democrats accepting cuts in government programs. At the same time, he said any agreement must include increased government revenue. Attempting to blunt Republican criticism, he said he also wants to extend existing middle class tax cuts. The tax cuts Im proposing we get rid of are tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, tax breaks for oil companies and hedge fund companies and jet owners, he said.

Get it done,Obama challenges GOP on debt talks

By David Espo

WASHINGTON In a blunt challenge to Republicans in Congress, President Barack Obama insisted Wednesday that elimination of selected tax breaks for oil companies and the super-wealthy must be included in any decit reduction plan. You stay here. Lets get it done, he allbut-lectured lawmakers, holding open the possibility of keeping Congress in Washington unless there is significant progress by weeks end on a deal to cut decits, raise the $14.3 trillion debt limit and avert a threatened nancial crisis. He said a plan must be in place by Aug. 2, a date he called a hard deadline. Obama drew a swift rebuttal from House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who issued a statement saying, The president is sorely mistaken if he believes a bill to raise the debt ceiling and raise taxes would pass the House. The votes simply arent there - and they arent going to be there, because the American people know tax hikes destroy jobs.

Hybrid drivers lose special privileges in California

By Daisy Ngyen

LOS ANGELES For six years, California gave owners of hybrid cars the keys to the fast lane: permission to drive alone among carpoolers. Now hybrids are about to lose the special privilege that was intended as a reward for saving gas and protecting the environment. The vehi-

cles are no longer novel, their key-shaped yellow decals faded from the sun, and transportation ofcials want to make way for a new generation of even cleaner cars. Starting Friday, 85,000 hybrid owners have to get back in line with the gas guzzlers, the truckers and everyone else or face steep nes. They can join the rest of us in trafc and suffer, said Elijah Brumeld, of Torrance, who drives a Ford Expedition SUV.

State ofcials say the time has come to end the hugely popular incentive program introduced in August 2005 because theyve met their goal of getting drivers to switch to low-emission hybrids, which run on both electricity and gasoline. For some Southern California road warriors, using the HOV lane can cut their commuting time in half, but its an advantage normally reserved for cars carrying at least two or three people. Hybrid drivers who relied on the perk

dread the return to gridlock and stop-and-go trafc. Im really not looking forward to it, said Alan McAllister of Murrieta, who drives 55 miles each way to get to his teaching job at Fullerton College. Over the last couple of weeks, Ive been noticing me going 55 mph in the carpool lane and other people virtually at a dead stop. I cant believe Im going to sit in that again.

Acid,chlorine mixed at Ark.plant

By Nomaan Merchant and Kurt Voight

SPRINGDALE, Ark. A solution of chlorine was poured into a drum of acid inside a Tyson Foods Inc. chicken processing plant in Arkansas this week, creating chlorine gas that sickened more than 170 people, authorities said in a report obtained Wednesday by the Associated Press. About 300 workers were evacuated from the plant Monday morning in Springdale. Ten workers remained hospitalized Wednesday afternoon, none of them in intensive care, company spokesman Gary Mickelson said. A Springdale Fire Department report obtained by the AP says the plants safety director told authorities that a solution of chlorine had been poured into a drum of FreshFx LP, a mix of acids used for disinfecting. Mickelson would not comment earlier Wednesday on what chemicals created the

chlorine gas, which can cause respiratory problems up to sudden death. Company ofcials have said human error played a role in the accident. We believe we know what they were, but we dont want to speculate, Mickelson said. Experts said Wednesday that many chicken plants use water mixed with chlorine to cool and clean chickens before they are processed. Acid is added separately to the water to make the chlorine more effective. Adding chlorine directly to the acid can cause the mixture to expel gas, experts said. Any time you mix acid with chlorine, you

can generate chlorine gas, said John Marcy, an extension food scientist at the University of Arkansas Center of Excellence for Poultry Science. The drum of acid was found inside a small mixing room in the plant when authorities arrived at the plant after 9 a.m. Monday, the report says. The gas had spread through an area with a large number of employees, though all workers had been cleared, the report says. Authorities left at about 11:30 a.m., the report says. The plants work schedule was back to normal by Monday afternoon, Mickelson said. The report doesnt say how the leaks occurred. Authorities do not believe the incident was criminal, and Springdale police do not have an open investigation, police spokesman Lt. Kevin Lewis said. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration has opened an investigation that could take up to six months, an agency spokesman said.

DES MOINES, Iowa An animal welfare group that has used undercover videos to generate public outrage over the treatment of livestock said it now plans to use secret recordings to pressure large grocery chains to stop buying from farms that use practices it considers abusive. The effort seemed to be working as several chains viewed the video and then either halted purchases from the targeted Iowa hog farm or expressed concern even before Chicago-based Mercy for Animals formally unveiled the recording at news conferences planned Wednesday in four cities. Earlier this week, Mercy for Animals met with or sent letters to ofcials at Costco, Hy-

Vee, Kroger and Safeway and provided links to its 2 1/2-minute video, then asked them to stop buying pork from Iowa Select Farms. The group said it secretly recorded its video between April and June at an Iowa Select Farms operation in the small town of Kamrar, about 50 miles north of Des Moines. Nathan Runkle, Mercy for Animals executive director, said his group and others have used secretly recorded videos to raise public awareness, but this was among the rst major efforts to use such recordings to pressure retailers. The group previously used another video to convince Costco to change its policies dealing with veal obtained from an Ohio producer, he said. We are looking at grocery chains buying from this facility and asking them to implement stronger animal welfare policies, Runkle said. They have a responsibility to

make sure animals that appear on their store shelves are not mistreated. The group planned news conferences Wednesday in Seattle, Des Moines, Cincinnati and San Francisco, which are near headquarters for the four grocery chains. Iowa Select Farms is among the nations largest hog producers, with dozens of operations scattered throughout the state. Howard Hill, a veterinarian and the companys director of external affairs, said Iowa Select was looking into the video but believes the recording gave an inaccurate picture of their operation. Were currently in the process of investigating the whole thing, Hill said. We do know that a lot of this video is inaccurate, that it was staged. But until we get a full investigation done, were not going to make any specic comments about the video.

FDA panel: Revoke drugs breast cancer approval

By Matthew Perrone

SILVER SPRING, Md. A panel of cancer experts has ruled for a second time that Avastin, the best-selling cancer drug in the world, should no longer be used in breast cancer patients, clearing the way for the government to remove its endorsement from the drug. The unprecedented vote Wednesday by the Food and Drug Administration advisory panel

comes less than a year after the same panel reached the same conclusion. The six members of the FDA oncology drug panel voted unanimously that Avastin is ineffective, unsafe and should have its approval for breast cancer withdrawn. I think we all wanted Avastin to succeed but the reality is that these studies did not bear out that hope, said Natalie Compagni-Portis, the lone patient representative on the panel. The vote is not binding and FDA

Commissioner Margaret Hamburg will make the nal decision sometime after July 28. The drug is approved for multiple cancers and will still be available for breast cancer, though insurers are expected to drop coverage if it loses FDA approval. The FDA began steps to remove Avastins breast cancer approval in December, but Roche took the rare step of appealing that decision and lobbied the agency and Congress for a second hearing.

The brazen attack by militants with explosives, anti-aircraft weapons, guns and grenade launchers dampened hopes that a peace settlement can be reached with the Taliban and raised doubt that Afghan security forces are ready to take the lead from foreign forces in the nearly decade-long war. Faizada, the leader of the local council in Herat province who was in Kabul to attend a conference on that very issue, had just nished dinner at the hotel restaurant and was walking to his room on the second oor around 10 p.m. Tuesday when the militants struck.

Afghan attack left mass of bodies at hotel

Around the nation

Report: More than 100 million suffer lasting pain
WASHINGTON Nearly a third of Americans experience long-lasting pain the kind that lingers for weeks to months and too often feel stigma rather than relief from a health care system poorly prepared to treat them, the Institute of Medicine said Wednesday. The staggering tab: Chronic pain is costing the nation at least $558 billion a year in medical bills, sick days and lost productivity, the report found. Thats more than the cost of heart disease, the No. 1 killer. All kinds of ailments can trigger lingering pain, from arthritis to cancer, spine problems to digestive disorders, injuries to surgery. Sometimes, chronic pain can be a disease all its own, the report stressed.

KABUL, Afghanistan Hotel guest Abdul Zahir Faizada watched as a uniformed gunmen shoved a man to the ground and shot him to death at point-blank range. Suddenly, gunfire erupted and another assailant blew himself up. By the time the siege of the luxury Inter-Continental Hotel ended Wednesday, 20 people lay dead including nine attackers, all of whom wore suicide-bomber vests and one of Kabuls premier landmarks was left a grisly scene of bodies, shrapnel and shattered glass. It was one of the biggest and most complex attacks ever orchestrated in the Afghan capital and appeared

Feds appeal bankruptcy ruling against marriage ban

SAN FRANCISCO The Obama administration appealed a bankruptcy court ruling that found the federal ban on gay marriage unconstitutional. The Justice Department led the appeal Monday, even though President Barack Obama said he agrees the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. Nevertheless, government lawyers said Obama has ordered them to defend the ban until Congress repeals the act or there is a nal judicial ruling striking it down.

JERUSALEM Software developed by an Israeli team is giving intriguing new hints about what researchers believe to be the multiple hands that wrote the Bible. The new software analyzes style and word choices to distinguish parts of a single text written by different authors, and when applied to

the Bible its algorithm teased out distinct writerly voices in the holy book. The program, part of a sub-eld of articial intelligence studies known as authorship attribution, has a range of potential applications from helping law enforcement to developing new computer programs for writers. But the Bible provided a tempting test case for the algorithms creators.

PARIS France acknowledged Wednesday that it airlifted weapons to Libyan civilians fighting Moammar Gadhafis forces in a besieged mountain region south of Tripoli, becoming the first NATO country to do so in a major escalation in the international campaign. The bold move was likely to draw criticism from countries leery of the allied use of force in Libyas civil

war like China and Russia and crossed a threshold in hopes of a breakthrough in the protracted NATO-led mission. The deliveries of guns, rocketpropelled grenades and munitions took place in early June in the western Nafusa mountains, when Gadhas troops had encircled civilians and his government refused a U.N request for a pause in the ghting there to allow access for a humanitarian aid shipment, French military spokesman Col. Thierry Burkhard said.

Senate should OK regulation of health rates

The Sacramento Bee

Green with envy

t roughly 4 years old, a great tragedy struck. My eye color, which had been a perfectly acceptable shade of blue, turned green. Im not sure if this was a quick transition although its doubtful the shift happened overnight. What I do remember is that I cried. I cried and pouted and waited for them to change back. My mom had blue eyes and my dad and brother had green eyes. Hence, using kid logic, blue was for girls and green was for boys. My orbs were now in the boy category. See the problem? My eye color never changed back, although my views on color-coded gender dynamics obviously did. I also no longer refuse to wear jeans or demand pink bicycles. Ive evolved. Apparently, human eye color also caved to evolution. After thousands of years of brown-eyed girls (and boys), some weird genetic mutation made humans start popping out blue-eyed offspring which in turn sparked dozens, if not hundreds, of mentions in song, literature, poetry and Frank Sinatra references. Blue was in, brown was out and inbetween shades like green didnt merit many shoutouts anywhere. If jealousy is the greeneyed monster, its fair to say a lot is due to the inequitable amount of accolades heaped on all the baby blues batting their lashes. In the last week, though, the world was atwitter over news that blue eyes are actually a hindrance for those holding jobs where eyesight is a pretty big component, like professional baseball players and airline pilots. Texas Ranger Josh Hamilton certainly believes it, turning to red-tinted contacts and sunglasses in hopes of improving his game. The formal explanation is something about light sensitivity and more glare due to less pigment something beyond my technical expertise but that sounds sort of like it was pulled straight from the duh files. I might not be able to explain the physiological reasons for dark eyes acting as a natural pair of shades but it sounds like common sense. In any case, I suddenly have another reason to celebrate my pre-kindergarten metamorphoses. Perhaps had this information been available then there would have been less crying on my part. Sure, Id still be in the boy category in my childlike mind but at least Id be better primed for vocations Im sure were also then deemed non-girly. Now, all I can do is pull out the ragged Green eyes tell no lies T-shirt that has served many a last-minute St. Patricks Day foray. I can wonder at those brown-eyed folks who shell out good money for bluehued contact lenses. I can also demand with greater authority more green eye references beyond Scarlett OHara and a 1970 song by Sugarloaf. Finally, green is supreme! What is that you say, brown-eyed legions? Light green eyes are no more superior than light blue eyes? I, too, would have failed at catching fly balls or steering a 747 accurately down a runway? Perhaps. Perhaps truly dark irises are the only ones benefiting from this recent optometric epiphany. Perhaps you have even more reason to cheer than I and the other green-eyed lasses. Perhaps my eye color is once again relegated to second-tier status. Or perhaps the brown-eyed folks are the ones who are green green with envy.

hen auto and homeowners insurance companies propose excessive rate increases, California state officials can reject them. But California has a big loophole when it comes to health insurance. State officials can review health insurance premiums and attempt to cajole insurance companies to reduce unreasonable increases. But they have no power to reject them, as their counterparts in other states can. The Assembly has done its part to change that, passing Assembly Bill 52, by Assemblymen Mike Feuer, D-Los Angeles, and Jared Huffman, D-San Rafael. Now its up to the Senate. A key Senate Health Committee hearing occurs Wednesday. The bill has strong support from two Democrats on the committee, Sens. Lois Wolk of Davis and Mark DeSaulnier of Concord, who co-authored the bill. The stance of Chairman Ed Hernandez, D-West Covina (Los Angeles County), an optometrist, will be key. He has supported similar legislation in the past but has not yet signaled his position on AB 52. To see why California needs AB 52, consider this recent example. Anthem Blue Cross announced a proposed May 1 rate

Other voices
increase for 120,000 members. State officials reviewed the increase and announced in April that it was unreasonable. Yet Anthem went ahead with the increase anyway. All state officials could do was send out a press release to publicly express our disappointment that Anthem Blue Cross didnt lower the rates as we requested. Thats cold comfort, indeed, for customers who saw an average increase of 16 percent. In other states, rates have to be approved before an insurance company can use them. Its not as if California would be stepping out as the first state on this. Doctors and hospitals have expressed concern that the bill will, in effect, lead to private-industry regulation of medical practice that is, lower reimbursements for their services. Oregon, which has a long history of authority to approve health insurance premium rates, has written to the Senate Health Committee dispelling that fear. We have no evidence that our rate review process has been detrimental to providers, states a June 21 letter from the Oregon Insurance Division Administrator. But the power to reject rate increases has allowed Oregon to promote greater stabili-

ty in rates, a big plus. A Kaiser Family Foundation report last December corroborates this. After reviewing the experience of the states, the report concluded that states with prior approval authority over rates appear to be better positioned to negotiate reductions in rate requests filed by carriers. Opponents in the health insurance industry are trying to label the bill as price controls. But that is simply false. The bill does not cap premiums. The experience in other states shows how the process would work. When an insurer requests a rate increase, the state looks at the cost of medical care, past rate changes, the companys financial position, actual and projected claims, premiums, administrative costs, and profit. If the insurer can show that the new rate is reasonable in relation to the benefits provided, it gets approved; and, if not, well, the state can reject it. The insurer has to come back with a new proposal. Will AB 52 alone solve the issue of rising health care costs in California? No. But it will help in the current, heavily concentrated market. Hernandez could be the hero in getting AB 52 through the Senate despite the opposition of big, well-financed interests that seek to stop momentum in the states at California. Other states already have acted. California should, too.

Letters to the editor

End the war, not just the surge
Editor, I am happy to see that U.S. troops are starting to move out of Afghanistan but the pace is too slow. I believe we need a new vision that starts with a cease-fire, includes clear U.S. participation in a broad-based peace process and encourages disarming militia forces (after we leave). For us, it means removing our military forces; for Afghanistan, it means an innovative reconciliation process. country into their new religion: Secular Humanism. The Christian values upon which our country was once based are being gradually replaced, one by one, by the values of Secular Humanism. There are no absolutes, anything goes. Homosexuals are now seeking the full status of marriage for gay unions in our country. Marriage for gay unions is illegal, ludicrous, a violation of Gods law, the natural law and a ruthless attack against the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman. To receive legal status, you have to qualify. Could two men or two women produce a human life biologically? Could our society that depends on population replacement continue to exist if monopolized by homosexuals? In reality, gay unions are negative to our society. Our country must not bow down to the homosexual demands for legal status of marriage and benefits. The legalization of this status would be like legalizing child pornography, child prostitution, bestiality and drugs for any use. Lastly, God, who is always in control, in his fairness and justice allows free will and a right to choose, as he did in the time of Noah, Sodom and Gomorrah. Is our country going to experience the same fate?

Sending a clear message

Editor, The International Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant for Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. This arrest warrant has sent a clear message to every country in the world that if you want to invade a sovereign nation, murder a million civilians in the process of stealing their resources, commit piracy and murder on the high seas, drop white phosphorous on helpless inhabitants of an open-air prison and never be issued an arrest warrant from the ICC, you only need to have nuclear weapons. The United States, Israel and the NATO nations have made this crystal clear.

Stocks close higher

By Francesca Levy and Matthew Craft

Wall Street
12,261.42 Wednesday. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 10.74, or 0.8 percent, to 1,307.41. The Nasdaq composite rose 11.18, or 0.4 percent, to 2,740.49. Financial companies in the S&P 500 rose 2.1 percent after Bank of America Corp. reached an $8.5 billion settlement with investors over claims it sold them bad loans. The investors said Bank of America violated agreements with them by selling them low-quality mortgagebacked securities that lost value when the housing market collapsed. Much of the losses stem from BofAs 2008 purchase of the troubled lender Countrywide. Bank stocks also got a lift from news that the Federal Reserve plans to limit the fees banks can charge retailers for swiping debit cards to 21 cents. Thats higher than the 12 cents the Fed rst proposed. Relief that Bank of America settled with investors sent the lenders stock up 3 percent. Bank of America is still down 24 percent over the past year, far more than any other major U.S. bank. It was the third and largest settlement Bank of America has struck this year over mortgage investments.

Stocks that moved substantially or traded heavily Wednesday on the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq Stock Market: NYSE Bank of America Corp.,up 32 cents at $11.14 The bank will pay $8.5 billion to settle a mortgage suit.

Family Dollar Stores Inc.,up 42 cents at $53.44 The discount stores quarterly prot rose 6 percent as markdowns attracted customers, but analysts had expected stronger growth. U.S.Steel Corp.,up $2.54 at $45.85 A Deutsche Bank analyst upgraded the steel producer toBuy,saying demand for the metal and its price are going to rise. Nasdaq Exfo Inc.,down $1.51 at $7.44 The Canadian telecommunications services provider issued an outlook that fell short of Wall Street expectations.

NEW YORK Stocks closed higher for the third day in a row Wednesday after Greece cleared a hurdle toward getting more emergency loans. Financial stocks rose after Bank of America reached a settlement with investors over failed mortgage securities. Greek lawmakers passed an austerity bill that brought the country closer to getting a nancial backstop it needs to avoid defaulting on its debt. A default by Greece would shock global markets and freeze lending to other heavily indebted European countries. The $17 billion relief package from international lenders does not eliminate the possibility that Greece will default, but it does buy Greece and other European countries more time to repair their budgets. The hope is that through the passage of time and slow improvement of nances, markets will become a little more forgiving, said Wasif Latif, a vice president at USAA Investment Management. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 72.73 points, or 0.6 percent, to close at

BofAs $8.5B settlement wont be its last

By Pallavi Gogoi

NEW YORK Bank of Americas $8.5 billion settlement with investors is the largest any bank has ever paid. It might help assuage worries about how deep the banks mortgage problems might be and how long it might take to settle them. But for the nations largest bank and its CEO Brian Moynihan, the slate is far from clean. The payout settles claims by just 22 investors who said Bank of America Corp. sold bonds based on substandard home mortgages. The bonds fell in value

when the housing market collapsed and left the investors with losses on $424 billion worth of mortgages. The $8.5 billion settlement eclipses the last three years of earnings at the Charlotte, N.C. bank. The uncertainty about just how bad Bank of Americas mortgage issues might be has scared investors and led to a 31 percent decline in Bank of Americas stock price since January of last year when Moynihan took over. This is a major step forward for our company, Moynihan said in a conference call with investors on Wednesday. Wall Street is cheering the move, sending the stock up 3 percent, to $11.14

Wednesday. It has been one of the worst performing stocks in the S&P 500 index in the past year. But that rally could be short-lived. Analysts say the $8.5 billion is about double the amount theyd expected. The bank continues to ght other investor groups that are demanding similar settlements. Lawsuits from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston, bond insurers MBIA and Syncora Holdings linger. And Bank of America is likely to be ordered to pay a hefty portion of the estimated $20 billion multi-bank settlement over the mishandling hundreds of thousands of home foreclosures.

Justin Timberlake part of group buying MySpace
LOS ANGELES Justin Timberlake apparently wasnt satised with just playing a social media impresario in the movies, so now hes becoming one in real life. The pop star, who played Napster co-founder Sean Parker in The Social Network, a movie about Facebook, has joined Specic Media in buying its downtrodden rival, MySpace, from News Corp. in a deal that closed Wednesday. Timberlake will have an ofce at MySpaces Beverly Hills headquarters and a staff of about a half dozen people working for him around the clock developing his ideas for the site, said Specic Media CEO Tim Vanderhook. The partners are set to unveil their plans for reviving the agging site in a couple of months. When we met with Justin and we discussed what our strategy was, we hit a chord with him, Vanderhook told the Associated Press. One of his passions is he really enjoys helping other artists and creating a community for people to really express themselves. I think we were blown away that we were able to get someone like Justin to be so excited about what we were doing. The deal is for $35 million, mostly in Specic Media stock, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Fed orders banks to lower retailers debit fees

WASHINGTON The Federal Reserve said Wednesday that banks can only charge retailers 21 cents each time they swipe a debit card. The board raised the cap from its initial proposal of 12 cents per swipe. Banks and big payment processors like Visa and Mastercard convinced the Fed that was too low to cover the cost of handling transactions, maintaining networks and preventing fraud. Banks currently have no limit and charge an average of 44 cents per swipe. The Fed voted 4-1 to adopt the rule, which was required under the nancial regulatory law enacted last year. Gov. Elizabeth Duke opposed the rule. It takes effect Oct 1, later than expected.

Imagination becomes reality for U.S.s Cheney

By Nancy Armour

HEIDELBERG, Germany When 11year-old Lauren Cheney and her teammates went to watch the United States play Nigeria at the 1999 World Cup, they brought along playbooks so they could write down what they would do when it was their turn on soccers biggest stage.

Hard to imagine they drew it up any better than what Cheney did Tuesday. Cheney scored in her first World Cup appearance, giving the United States its rst goal of the tournament and turning what had been an uncomfortably tight game into the kind of condent and creative performance that has made the U.S. the worlds most dominant team the last two decades. With their 20 victory over North Korea, the Americans are

atop Group C and could book a spot in the quarternals as early as Saturday. This is what we live to do, Cheney said Wednesday. We play because of this tournament, because of this stage. A latecomer to the U.S. national team she started with the U-20 team instead of working her way up through the youth squads as so many players do Cheneys big break came in 2008. After helping the Americans

qualify for the Beijing Olympics, the Indianapolis native was named an alternate. Then in the last game before the U.S. left for Beijing, Abby Wambach broke her leg. I actually wouldnt watch the game. I would listen to it, but I didnt want to watch completely because I was still a little torn, Cheney said. But my dad was watching and

White Sox pull away late

A shocking moment for the Shockers

he San Mateo American Legion Post 82 Shockers have been one of the top summer baseball programs on the Peninsula for at least the last decade. The team in its various incarnations has seen a ton of top-notch talent come through its ranks. It has traveled around the Western Region and as far as Nebraska. This past weekend, however, the team experienced something many had never seen before. Playing in a tournament in Las Vegas and only a couple outs away from advancing to the seminals, the Shockers were removed from the tournament following an incident on the eld. Barreto Nery, a pitcher and four-year player in the program, was knocked unconscious by a player from a Boise team who was caught in a rundown between third base and home plate. Shockers assistant coach Rick Lavezzo said it was no heat-of-battle play. The way he hit [Nery] doesnt happen on the baseball eld, Lavezzo said. It was a good game all the way through (until that incident). Lavezzo said Nery was hospitalized in the Las Vegas area for a couple days with a concussion and had to be driven home by one of the Shockers parents instead of ying home with the team. He said the team was kicked out of the tournament by the tournament director because he said the Shockers reserves left the bench. They came on the eld, but nothing happened, Lavezzo said. He also said the tournament director was under the impression the Shockers were unwilling to take the eld for fear of their safety, which Lavezzo acknowledged. The Boise team was also kicked out of


San Mateos Mitch Foley completes a bare-handed play at short during Wednesdays 7-2 victory over All-Star Academy of Mountain View.
By Julio Lara

There are solid wins. There are good wins. And then there are those Ws that fall slightly above those two categories San Mateo Palomino manager Lenny Souza likes those kind of wins the best. This was a great league win, he said. Im really happy. You have to play a great team to get a great win, and thats exactly what the White Sox had in front of them Wednesday afternoon at Aragon High a All-Star Academy All-Star team led by Division I talent up and down the roster. But San Mateo put together a great performance behind the pitching of Pierce Precht

and Julian Garcia, plus the timely hitting of Nick Morehead and Mark Hurley to beat the Broncos 7-2. Precht pitched 5-plus innings before handing the ball over to Garcia, who left the bases loaded in the sixth and surrendered a single in the seventh. For the game, the two combined for only six hits this against a solid Mountain View lineup. Pierce proved that he can pitch to and beat the best teams, Julian has really stepped up as the closer, Souza said. We had really timely hitting, a couple of baserunning mistakes, but other than that, it was a pretty good baseball game. The Broncos put pressure on the White Sox rst. In the top of the third, Mountain View

turned a hit batsmen, a single and a wild pitch into a pair of early runs. Nikko Saenz picked up an RBI single in the frame to support Rudy Silva on the mound, who was a strike-throwing machine for the games initial part. The White Sox got to Silva in the third after he unexpectedly lost his feel of the strike zone and walked two hitters in the inning. The rst walk, to Morehead, turned into the lone run of the frame when Mitch Foley grounded out to second. San Mateo would leave the bases loaded in the inning. But they caught a bit of break when Silva did not come out to pitch the fourth, and took advantage of that when John Coloma led the

Klitschko fed up with childishtaunts from Haye

By Karl Ritter

HAMBURG, Germany If Wladimir Klitschko thought he was going to get a glimpse of David Hayes boxing style on Wednesday, he must have been disappointed. After warming up at a public training session, the Briton threw just one punch before leaving the ring, stunning a crowd that included his Ukrainian rival in a much anticipated heavyweight ght Saturday. Haye showed no interest as Klitschko started his workout, chatting with TV reporters before leaving the training center in Hamburg

with his entourage. After his full-hour session, Klitschko told the Associated Press he was getting fed up with his opponents childish antics. I cant even take it seriously. Its not even funny anymore, said the 35-year-old IBF and WBO champion. You can trash talk a certain time, but as I said, reality is coming ... and its serious business. It wont be funny for David Haye. The two ghters have traded some fairly strong insults, even by heavyweight boxing standards, in the lead-up to the ght. Haye, the WBA champion, has worn a T-shirt showing the severed heads of Klitschko and his older

brother Vitali. In one of his latest taunts, Haye said he was more worried about getting knocked out by Germanys E. coli outbreak than by Klitschko, who has a 55-3 record with 49 KOs. Haye, a 30-year-old former unied cruiserweight champion, said he believes his presence has made the heavyweight division more interesting, especially among American boxing fans. Their message is get Wladimir out of this division because hes killing it, Haye told the Press Association on Wednesday. Its only

Chicago snaps Giants win streak


Surprise waiting for Tejada after HR


Cubs 2, Giants 1
The Cubs scored in the bottom half of the ninth on Aramis Ramirezs pinch-hit single for a 2-1 victory Wednesday night that ended the Giants seven-game winning streak. We won the game. Thats the most important thing, Dempster said. A nice win after losing a doubleheader yesterday, to come back and go out there and win a game against a tough pitcher like that. Quade said he wanted Dempster to get the win and go the distance, if possible. I wanted to give him a shot. A walk or an extra-base hit in that situation, and I think I got to get Marmol in the game. A single? Maybe you let him try to pitch through it, at

CHICAGO Ryan Dempster wanted to stay in the game. He had only thrown 83 pitches, given up three hits, was ahead 1-0 in the ninth inning and had retired 20 straight hitters at one point. Dempster was pitching his best game of the season while winning a duel with two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants. Cubs manager Mike Quade still made the move for closer Carlos Marmol in the top of the ninth after Dempster gave up a leadoff double to pinch-hitter Pat Burrell. Marmol yielded a game-tying single to Emmanuel Burriss but then pitched out of a bases-loaded jam.

least another hitter, Quade said, adding he knew Dempster wanted to finish. I dont blame him, short of fighting me. Its a whole different animal if the pitch count is higher. He wants to finish the thing, and I want to bring a guy in that situation who is there regularly. Deep down, I dont want him losing that game, in spite of the pitch count. He didnt get a win. Thats not going to take away from the performance. In the bottom of the ninth, Sergio Romo (3-1) gave up an infield single to leadoff batter Tony Campana, who moved to second on Reed Johnsons sacrifice. After a groundout moved him to third, Ramirez hit an 0-2 pitch to left to win it.

Nolasco throws gem, beats As


OAKLAND, Calif. Ricky Nolasco pitched a ve-hitter, Hanley Ramirez and Logan Morrison homered and the slumping Florida Marlins showed signs of life in a 3-0 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday night. Nolasco (4-5) overcame a shaky start for his rst win in more than a month, which came the last time the Marlins were in the Bay Area against San Francisco. He struck out three and walked two for his fth career complete game. The homers by Ramirez and Morrison off starter Guillermo Moscoso (2-4) were the rst by Florida in eight days. The Marlins improved to 4-23 in June, by far the worst month in franchise history. Oakland was held scoreless for the ninth time this season.

The offensive power came after an unusual team meeting led by interim manager Jack McKeon. The 80-year-old turned the clubhouse into a classroom for about 15 minutes before batting practice, even using a bat as a prop while he delivered his speech to hitters. He made his players chuckle with tales about former As owner Charles Finley when McKeon managed Oakland from 1977-78 and gave more instruction than motivation. We had an educational meeting, McKeon said. It wasnt one of my usual, Go get em, babies. It was educational, how weve got to go about it. Whatever the reason, the Marlins nally started to swing the bats. Ramirezs drive in the rst inning landed over the 400-foot sign in straightaway center eld for his rst home run since May 21 and it put Florida ahead 2-0. Morrison added a

solo shot to right in the fourth to give the Marlins a three-run lead. Florida backed Nolasco with some splendid defense. Mike Stanton made a running catch of Cliff Penningtons soaring shot up against the wall in right eld just as his glove slammed into the padding. Second baseman Omar Infante hopped over a broken bat to eld a ground ball by Hideki Matsui in the third. The closest the As came to touching Nolasco came early. Pennington and Coco Crisp had consecutive one-out singles in the rst, moving to second and third on Matsuis yout. After Conor Jackson walked to load the bases, Ryan Sweeney ied out to center. Oakland never mounted another serious threat. Moscoso struck out a season-high eight and gave up four hits in six innings.

CHICAGO Among the age-old traditions at Wrigley Field, throwing back home run balls hit by visiting players is right at the top of the list. San Franciscos Miguel Tejada got quite the surprise after hitting a ninth-inning homer in the opening game of a doubleheader Tuesday. Tejada hit a pitch from John Grabow into the left-eld bleachers and before he could get back to the dugout the ball was waiting for him compliments of a strong-armed fan. The Giants beat the Chicago Cubs 13-7 and went on to sweep. The fan near the front of the seats made a leaping, barehanded catch and red it back onto the eld, the ball bouncing past Tejada as he trotted between second and third base. Miguel Tejada I didnt see the ball, Tejada said. I was just excited to run the bases. Its been a long time. I dont want to step on the ball because Im not looking up, Im looking down. The shot snapped a streak of 225 at-bats without a homer, the longest drought of his career. Tejada, who has 302 career home runs, last went deep on April 8 against the St. Louis Cardinals. The ball eventually trickled over the rstbase line toward the Giants dugout. On-deck hitter Aubrey Huff batted the ball backward to Cody Ross, who picked it up and ipped the souvenir to Tejada, who stuffed it into his back pocket. What an arm, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. I gure hed get signed today, did he? After that, he might be in somebodys bullpen. I didnt know if somebody threw it or somebody shot it. That was quite an arm to reach our dugout.

Tsonga shocks Federer in five

By Howard Fendrich

World Cup Roundup

MOENCHENGLADBACH, Germany Rosanas second-half strike lifted Brazil to a 1-0 victory over Australia in its opening match at the womens World Cup on Wednesday. The breakthrough in a hard-fought Group D match came in the 54th minute, when Cristiane capitalized on some scrappy Australian defending to head the ball to the 28-year-old Rosana, who took one touch past a defender before unleashing her shot past the helpless Melissa Barbieri. Lisa De Vanna might have scored an equalizer but red over in the 87th minute with only the goalkeeper to beat, and Australia also went close from a corner at the very end. Brazil signaled its intent to attack when it lined up with three in defense, but Australia coped well with the likes of Cristiane and ve-time FIFA player of the year Marta. Marta started brightly, skipping past a number of challenges before putting in a cross in the third minute, and Servet Uzunlars interception was crucial a minute later with the 25-year-old Brazilian through on goal. The Australians showed they were not intimidated, however, with De Vanna displaying trickery on the left wing, and Elise Kellond-Knight playing the ball through the legs of a Brazilian before clearing from defense.

WIMBLEDON, England For two superb sets Wednesday, everything looked so routine for Roger Federer, precisely the way it did for so many years at Wimbledon and nearly everywhere else, too. Little comes easily for Federer anymore, even at the All England Club, where hes won six of his record 16 major championships. Before Wednesday, Federer was 178-0 when taking the rst two sets of a Grand Slam match. Now hes 178-1. Facing a younger, quicker and betterserving opponent, Federer failed to make his big lead stand up and lost 3-6, 6-7 (3), 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 to 12th-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France in the quarternals. Federer leaves Wimbledon in that round for the second consecutive year, after reaching seven nals in a row from 200309. Nevertheless, Federer sounded deant in defeat, saying he played well against Tsonga and is sure he denitely can add to his Grand Slam collection, even though hell turn 30 in August. When I was 20, I would have been

crushed: I cant go on; Ill never get another chance to be in a quarternal of a Grand Slam. But today, I know that I should probably have lots more, said Federer, who lost in the French Open nal Jo-Wilifried earlier this month. I Tsonga dont have that mental stress. I know what Ive accomplished already. Its different when youre older and youve accomplished as much as I have. The third-seeded Federers loss preRoger Federer vented the 125th edition of Wimbledon from being the rst since 1995 with the four top men in the seminals. The other favorites all won Wednesday, though not without some difculty: No. 1 Rafael Nadal numbed his injured left foot with a painkilling injection then beat No. 10 Mardy Fish of the United States 6-3, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4; No. 2 Novak Djokovic was a break down in the third set but reeled

off seven games in a row to get past 18year-old qualifier Bernard Tomic of Australia 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, 7-5; and No. 4 Andy Murray pulled up awkwardly after tweaking his hip changing directions on one third-set point but otherwise breezed past unseeded Feliciano Lopez of Spain 6-3, 6-4, 6-4. There are other players that are able to play great tennis, and Tsonga has proved it today, said Djokovic, who would replace Nadal at No. 1 in the ATP rankings by reaching the nal. Its all very close at this level, especially in the second week of a Grand Slam. In Fridays seminals, Tsonga will face Djokovic, who is 46-1 in 2011, the only loss coming to Federer at the French Open. Defending champion Nadal will play Murray, who hopes to give Britain its rst mens title at the All England Club in 75 years. Although Fish thought Nadal moved well against him and showed no sign of injury, the 10-time major champion said: My foot is not ne. But we are in quarternals of Wimbledon. Is an emergency, so I had to play. Nadal is on a 19-match winning streak at the grass-court Grand Slam, and is 312 since the start of the 2006 tournament; both losses were against Federer in nals.

Norway 1, Equatorial Guinea 0

AUGSBURG Emilie Haavi nally broke down Equatorial Guineas defense in the 84th minute and Norway escaped with a surprisingly close 1-0 win in its opening game at the Womens World Cup. The heavily favored Norwegians had hit the post three times Wednesday and looked like they were going to have to settle for a 0-0 draw before substitute Leni Larsen Kaurin broke free on the right and passed to Haavi low in an open center. Captain Anonman had several clear chances for Equatorial Guinea, a nation of 670,000 in West Africa with a FIFA ranking of 61, the lowest in the tournament. The game could have turned as early as the second minute, but the rst smooth Norway attack ended when a diagonal shot from Haavi struck the inside of the post. Lene Mykjaland also hit the post in the 55th, as did Isabell Herlovsen two minutes later. Equatorial Guinea could have taken the lead in the 53rd when the green-braided Anonman forced a one-on-one with goalkeeper Ingrid Hjelmseth, but put the ball wide. She did likewise in the 72nd of an exciting match in Augsburg Arena. Norway applied more pressure in the second half, eventually resulting in Haavis goal. Equatorial Guinea has been rising fast in the FIFA standings and its play showed why. Anchored by goalie Miriam and central defender Carolina, Equatorial Guinea showed off ne positioning and skills.

he said, Oh my gosh, Lauren, Abby just got hurt. Its bad. I said, Oh, shes dramatic. Shes ne, totally ne. Ten minutes later, Cheneys phone rang. It was Wambach, calling from the ambulance to say Cheney needed to start packing. She said she knew that I could do it. And that I deserved it, Cheney said. To have Abby tell me she thought I belonged there, it made me feel comfortable going in. Her role in Beijing would be much different than she was used to, however. At UCLA, she was a star. She had led the Pac-10 in points and goals as a freshman, and nished second in voting for the Hermann Trophy soccers equivalent of the Heisman as a sophomore. Her name was a given in the starting lineup, and everyone knew shed be getting the ball. In Beijing, Cheney would be a role player. NBC wouldnt be doing a sappy, pre-game feature on her. Shed be coming off the bench if she got in a game at all. The 08 experience, it humbled me completely, Cheney said. I wasnt going to be a star, I wasnt going to be even remotely close to a starter. But I could encourage everybody else. I could make them better players just by being there. That was the rst time Id ever really done that. I learned how to be a teammate instead of just playing. It taught me how to work even harder, too, she added. You want to work harder for your teammates. You want them to be the best they are when theyre starting, when theyre playing. The lessons Cheney learned in Beijing have stayed with her, even as shes become an increasingly important part of the U.S. team. Though she occasionally found herself back in the starting lineup last season as Wambach recovered from an Achilles injury, most of her appearances have come off the bench. Rather than moping about a supporting role, Cheney relishes the education its given her. I actually embraced that role because I get to gure out whats going on in the game rst before I go in. So when I go in, I know exactly what I need to do and how I can switch the game, she said. Starting is extremely different. You have to be ready, have to have good warmup, do everything right from the

beginning. Not only that, you have to gure it out on the eld. But Cheneys sharpness in training impressed Sundhage enough that she started the 23-year-old against North Korea. It was Cheneys rst start since March. Its so important to create an environment where youre ghting for that spot, Sundhage said. Its not been just one or two practices. Consistently, for a while, shes been ghting for that spot. Cheney was relentless in the attack, repeatedly peppering North Korean goalkeeper Hong Myong Hui. Hong managed to corral all of Cheneys shots until the 54th minute, when Wambach sprinted up the left ank, turned a North Korean defender around with a nifty step and then served up a perfect cross that Cheney headed into the net. The goal erased all the nerves the Americans had been feeling, and they dominated the North Koreans the rest of the game. It may not have been a 7-1 rout like Cheney and her friends saw back in 1999. But the Americans were the only team in the tournament to win their opening game by more than one goal, and they easily could have tacked on another two or three. That feeling is surreal, Cheney said. To be on the eld, its just pure joy.

But now the momentum was on San Mateos side, and they capitalized on it in the fifth by taking their first lead of the game. Mark Hurley continued his torrid tear through the summer baseball reason, lining a double down the left field line that scored the go-ahead run. Hurley would later steal third and score an insurance fun on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Mitch Labbie. Theres a lot of good players in our league, but Mark has to be in that top echelon, Souza said. Hes a stud. Marks one of the best players weve had on any White Sox team. He can play. Hes just tearing it up routinely. We just want to get him up with runners on. The Broncos loaded the bases in the top of the sixth with Precht out and Garcia pitching. But they could not put a dent in their deficit.
scoreboard. Go out and force a 10-run mercy stoppage. Any other retaliation whether hitting one of their players with a pitch, attempting to spike them or run over the catcher at the plate, will accomplish nothing. In fact, take it too far and, you could be looking at police action and for many of the players, they are past the point of simply being slapped on the wrist and released to their parents. Lavezzo said Nery will have to miss about two more weeks to be completely healthy and his words to Nery apply to everyone else in the program who may be out for justice: Theres more to life than baseball. *** Twelve years ago, womens soccer catapulted into the mainstream about the time American Brandi Chastain ripped off her jersey following her game-winning penalty kick goal that sealed the Americans second Womens World Cup championship. Since then, the U.S. has disappointed by its lofty standards by not winning a Womens World Cup in the two ensuing competitions. The Americans hope to snap that streak this

inning off with a single. After an error and a sacrice bunt, Coloma found himself at third with Morehead at the plate and a chance to tie the game. My approach (was) get a rst pitch, maybe get one I could hit to centereld, get it over his head and get that run in, Morehead said of his at-bat. After that rst pitch though, my approach was to go up the middle and do what I can to get that run in. What he did was rip a single to left eld that scored Coloma easily, tying the game at two. The White Sox threatened to score more, but hit into a rally-killing double play to end the frame.

I was honestly expecting those guys to come back with something eventually, Souza said, theyre just a well-coached club, those guys have played together since they were 12 years old, they know what theyre doing. Thats a good club and were happy to beat them. San Mateo added three more runs on only one hit in the bottom of the sixth as Mountain View started the inning with three walks and an error. Hurley would double once again to pick up another RBI and put the game well out of reach for the Broncos.

the tournament and it left Las Vegas almost immediately in an attempt to prevent any retaliation at the hotel where both teams were staying. Lavezzo said the Boise manager, Mike Sutcliffe, brother of former Major League pitcher Rick Sutcliffe, has called daily to check on Nerys health and also to inform the Shockers the player responsible for the elbow had been suspended. I think theyre really genuine, calling to see how [Nery] is, Lavezzo said. The sad thing is, this may not be over. The Shockers 17-and-under program, the Bulldogs, are playing in a tournament in Reno this weekend. Their rst game? Against that same Boise team. A word to all players in the Post 82 program: let it go. The best way to retaliate is to go out and drub them on the eld, on the

year in the latest installment of the Womens World Cup currently going on in Germany. The U.S. is off to a decent start, with a 2-0 win over North Korea, which, as of this writing, was the largest margin of victory in the tournament thus far. What Ive found more impressive, however, is the overall play of most of the teams. Ive actually watched many of the games thus far not appointment viewing, but it beats watching the local news all morning long. Wednesday, for example, Australia gave Brazil all it could handle before the Brazilians scored late. The same could be said of Norways 1-0 win over Equatorial Guinea. The Norwegians scored in the nal ve minutes and their celebration was one of relief, more so than joy. Even North Korea, which is ranked No. 8 in the world, gave the No. 1-ranked Americans ts during the rst half when it actually out played the U.S. Many casual fans wonder why the U.S. women havent won a World Cup since that iconic 1999 moment. All they have to do is watch this World Cup and realize the rest of the world has caught up.

During his brief workout, Haye shaped up with an uncharacteristic southpaw stance in an apparent attempt to play mind games with Klitschko, who was watching ringside with his brother, the WBC titleholder. When his coach brought out the pads, Haye threw just one punch before taking a bow and leaving the ring. Klitschko was not impressed. I think he sits in the room in the hotel and he thinks: What else can I do to anger the Klitschko team, Wladimir said.

BRADENTON, Fla. The NFL lockout has prevented Marcell Dareus from cashing in on turning pro, so he mows his godfathers lawn in exchange for a place to stay. Other rookies are low on dough, too. Von Miller sleeps in the same room he had in high school. Anthony Castonzo makes deliveries for his parents restaurant. And Aaron Williams does ranch work, throwing hay and xing barbed-wire fences. Acres and acres of land; youre always moving, Williams said. But its better than sitting on your butt playing Xbox. These are odd times for NFL rookies, and more than 150 of them gathered for a symposium sponsored by the players association that concluded Wednesday. This incoming class is unlike any other, because the lockout has indenitely delayed that rst pro paycheck. Guys are hurting for money right now, said quarterback Christian Ponder, a rst-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings. Its a crazy time, especially with the uncertainty of when were going to start and get some money in our pocket. To make the situation even more gloomy for players just out of college, the league is pushing for a rookie wage scale as part of a new collective bargaining agreement. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and players association chief DeMaurice Smith spoke to the group Wednesday but offered no indication as to when the 4-month-old labor dispute might end. Negotiations are ongoing, but with training camps scheduled to open in about three weeks, the season remains in jeopardy. You come out of college with plans of making big money, and everything goes on hold, said Dareus, the third overall pick by the Buffalo Bills. It grinds you. Dareus, a 320-pound defensive tackle from Alabama, said he earns his keep while living in Birmingham with his godfather.

Small-space gardening: When the garden is on the porch

A daily walk through the garden to harvest a few vine-ripened tomatoes, some peppers or a handful of aromatic basil is a dream come true for anyone who enjoys cooking with fresh ingredients. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time or the space to cultivate a large vegetable garden. If you fall into that category, but still yearn to harvest fresh ingredients for a summertime meal, all you need to do is change your idea of what a garden should look like. Gardening in small spaces is a trend that has taken hold with apartment dwellers, condo owners, and those who either dont have enough space for a large garden or the need for one. For many, a tomato plant or two, some basil and a few fresh herbs is all they need in a garden. There are several options for small space gardens, and some dont even require ground to plant in. The simplest is 12-inch pot is large enough to grow three or four of your favorite herbs. Most herbs are sun lovers, so your pot will need at least ve to six hours of direct sun. Anything less than four hours will lead to weak growth. For those living in apartments or where balcony space is all that is available, a window box adapted to a railing will work just as well. A window box adapted to a railing is ideal for creating a small-space garden on a porch or deck. Here at the Cultivating Life gardens we made

ours out of rot resistant cedar. Be sure to use a well-drained potting soil mix with plenty of organic content to ensure abundant growth. As with most herbs, harvesting a few sprigs or leaves at a time is enough for most recipes. If you own a deck, patio or terrace that offers a bit more space, vegetable boxes might be the perfect solution for a manageable garden. They are available at most DIY stores or garden centers and are often made from rot resistant cedar. Vegetable boxes have the advantage of holding larger volumes of soil and thus can accommodate more plants than a pot or window box. But again, as with other containers, vegetable boxes must be positioned so they receive at least ve to six hours of direct sun. For best results, youll need consider the growth habit of the vegetables you chose and position them in the box accordingly. Start

Jazz up an outdoor summer dinner party

By Amy Lorentzen

Keeping guests comfortable and entertained while dining al fresco can seem daunting. But a few fun items can help you create a cozy space, serve summer foods with air, and send guests on their way with a reminder of a special backyard barbecue or patio party. These 10 outdoor dinner party essentials are easy to nd, easy to use and easy on the budget:

help tame the heat. You can also nd inexpensive kits to turn your garden hose into an effective mister. If the evening air cools quickly, a re element will make your outdoor space cozy. Choose from wroughtiron lanterns, re bowls and rings, or a chiminea. Prepackaged outdoor re logs only require striking a match. An added bonus: Guests can get campy and roast marshmallows or hot dogs.

favorite. Try seasonal fruits for a classic pie, or get nostalgic with a smores pie. For something more elegant, try a raspberry cheesecake pie or a white chocolate banana crhme pie. Whipping up a meringue or offering any slice a la mode makes it an even cooler treat.

8. Party Playlist
Find out beforehand what type of music your guests enjoy and download their favorite tunes. Its a mood setter and a conversation starter. If you dont want to compile your own music, try a movie soundtrack or best-hits CD. That will provide smooth transitions between songs and bring back memories.

4. Insect Repellent
Put away the sticky sprays, and provide guests with wearable insect-repelling items such as bracelets and belt clips. For kids and the young at heart, there are stickers available in fun shapes, including hearts, owers, dinosaurs and, of course, insects. Theyll help protect from pests without leaving residue on skin and clothes.

1. String Lights or Paper Lanterns

You dont have to deal with the mess of tiki torches to create a warm ambiance. Instead, frame your best outdoor views with string lights or paper lanterns that can range from whimsical to contemporary to sophisticated. Theyre affordable and easy. They also make a smooth transition from the indoors and help dene the outdoor dining area, says Stephanie Grotta, lead designer for Target Corp.s Smith & Hawken line. You really want to create that intimate environment, she says.

9. Personal Comfort Items

Think washroom attendants table for the outdoors. Offer a small table of essential summer items, including sunscreen, lip balm, fresh wipes, hand sanitizer and insect repellents. At the end of the evening, set out bottled water for guests to grab for the ride home. Tina Hayes, founder of the School of Etiquette and Decorum in Antioch, Calif., says planning for comfort is just as important as preparing the meal. From the initial greeting at the door to the last goodbye, all should feel welcomed, comfortable and relaxed, she says.

5. Grilling Pizza Stone

Want to make eating alfresco a little easier? Prepare pizza dough beforehand and use a grilling pizza stone on your barbecue. Allow guests to add sauces, slices of fresh summer veggies and grilled meats. Myra Adkins, general manager of Word of Mouth Catering in Austin, Texas, says portable food like pizza helps break the ice if its a group of folks who dont know each other very well.

2. Outdoor Throw Pillows

Provide plenty of seating, and dress it up or tie together mix-andmatch pieces by piling on colorful throw pillows. The trend is to make the outdoors as comfortable as your living room, says Leigh Oshirak with Pottery Barn Brands. Use bold patterns, including thick stripes, geometric designs and Indian-inspired florals. Or make your mark with monogramming. Since just about any eye-catching color is in this summer, go with the one you like best or add to what youve already got.

6. Outdoor Drink Dispenser

Give yourself even more party time by setting up a drink station where guests can serve themselves. Many department stores offer plastic and glass dispensers in various shapes and sizes. Add slices of lemon, lime and orange to ice water, or frozen berries to adult drinks for added color and avor.

10. Party Favors

For an even more memorable event, hand out small gifts that guests can use at the party and then take with them. Inexpensive favors can include insulated bottle and can holders, flip flops, colorful paper fans for the ladies and tiny, battery-operated fans for the men. Or give guests a CD of that great playlist you put together. For special occasions such as the Fourth of July, treat guests to pinwheels, party poppers and sparklers.

3. Mister and Fire Bowl

When youre expecting high temperatures, dont just set up fans. Rent, borrow or buy a mister to

7. Pie Stand
Foodies are calling this The Year of the Pie, so break out your pie tin and use a decorative rack or stand to serve up this all-American

San Carlos applauds state Sen. Leland Yees no votes on the two RDA elimination/extortion bills. Were disappointed the rest of the countys legislative delegation did not follow his lead on this important issue, Moura wrote in an email to the Daily Journal. Assemblymembers Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, Rich Gordon, D-Menlo Park, and Fiona Ma, DSan Francisco, voted for both ABX1 26 and ABX1 27 earlier this week as did state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto. At the county level, newly elected Supervisor Dave Pine supported the idea of reforming RDAs for the sake of schools but did not necessarily think they should be disbanded. The RDA process is in need of a major overhaul. There have been abuses in the program and may have grown beyond its intended scope, said Pine, a former trustee with the San Mateo Union High School District. Belmont Mayor Coralin Feierbach is not a particular fan of RDAs but does not think the governor has the authority to disband them. Im not for RDAs but I dont know why Brown did this. Its really crazy, Feierbach said. While Browns budget keeps education funding at the same levels as last year, schools could still suffer later if the state does not realize an expected increase in tax revenue. wealthiest Californians and a tax on companies that pump oil within the state. Proponents are gearing their ballot campaigns toward the November 2012 presidential election, when turnout is expected to be higher and more Democratic-leaning than it would have been this year or during the June primary next year. We enacted a plan that preserves our opportunity for economic recovery, and look forward to giving Californians the chance to vote on making that recovery even stronger, said Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, DSacramento. Browns ofce had not released details about when he will sign the budget package. The budget for the scal year that begins Friday relies on further spending cuts to close a remaining $9.6 billion decit, an amount that had been reduced from a $26.6 billion decit at the beginning of the year. also helps maximize space. Plants such as climbing pole beans or vining cherry tomatoes can be trained up a trellis attached to the back of the box. Vegetable boxes are easy to maintain since they typically dont require a lot of weeding. Watering is a necessity, but placing your boxes near a water outlet makes that job much easier. An occasional feeding will ensure maximum productivity. For those with a small yard or access to bare ground, square-foot gardening is a good option. In this method, a 3-foot by 3-foot square grid is laid out on the ground. Again, place taller plants in the center or the back and shorter plants and trailing plants in the front.

Budget provisions
Taxes and fees: Adding a $12 annual fee increase on vehicle registrations to raise $300 million for Department of Motor Vehicle services.The departments costs previously were covered by a voter-approved increase in the vehicle license fee increase that expires July 1. Imposing a $150 annual fee on homes in rural areas to raise $50 million in the coming scal year to pay for wildre protection from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Requiring online retailers such as Amazon.com to collect California sales taxes,a change Democrats project will net $200 million annually. Converts 1.06 percentage point of the 7.25 percent state sales tax to a local sales tax. This will raise $5 billion to cover a realignment that transfers tens of thousands of lower-level offenders from state prisons to county jails. Part of the realignment also will be funded by redirecting $453 million of the states vehicle license fee from the Department of Motor Vehicles.The DMV budget will be partially restored through the additional $12 vehicle registration fee.Consumers still will pay 1 percentage point less in state sales tax beginning Friday because the temporary increases to the sales and vehicle taxes expire. Additional spending cuts: $150 million to the University of California, on top of a $500 million cut in March. $150 million to the California State University,on top of a $500 million cut in March. $150 million to the state courts system,on top of a $200 million cut in March. $310 million in savings from delaying court construction projects. Revenue assumptions: $4 billion in higher tax revenue projections from the governors estimate in May and an additional $1.2 billion to reect higher current-year revenues from a recovering economy.That is on top of the $6.6 billion in higher revenue the governor projected in his May revision. $1.7 billion by eliminating about 400 community redevelopment agencies and requiring them to make contributions to local schools should they want to continue to operate. About $3 billion in savings by delaying payments for one year to public schools and community colleges. The cuts that will be triggered during the middle of the year if tax revenue falls short of assumptions: If revenue falls $1 billion to $2 billion short,there will be another $600 million in cuts. That will include $100 million to the University of California system; $100 million to the California State University system; $100 million to the Department of Developmental Services; and $100 million to the in-home services program. The remaining savings would come from library grants,corrections,community college fee increases and other programs.The remaining shortfall of at least $400 million would be deferred into the next scal year. If revenue falls $2 billion to $4 billion short,there will be another $1.9 billion in cuts.That will include a savings of $1.5 billion from public schools by giving local districts the option of cutting the school year short by seven days,a roughly $250 million cut from school bus transportation and $72 million from community colleges. Potential challenges: Anti-tax groups are threatening to sue because the Legislatures Democratic majority is poised to approve fee increases without a two-thirds majority vote. Republicans question the revenue projections. Local governments and agencies plan to sue in the state Supreme Court over the restructuring of redevelopment agencies.

were signed by Brown yesterday. Some cities have been prepping for the states action by committing RDA funds to new projects, particularly for affordable housing. The state hopes to realize about $1.7 billion annually by restructuring about 400 redevelopment agencies across the state. The state is looking at cities to bail them out by downloading responsibilities to lower levels, Redwood City Mayor Jeff Ira said yesterday. This continuing ongoing saga shows complete incompetence by the governor and state lawmakers. They are desperate. Ira also described state lawmakers as stupid, inefcient and wasteful. San Mateo Finance Director David Culver called the states action illegal and the mayor said the states move will limit job creation at the local level. I think San Mateo is a sterling example of how RDA funds should be used, Mayor Jack Matthews said. San Mateo has used RDA money to revital-

ize downtown and to help fund new affordable housing and ofce projects near the Hayward Park Caltrain station in recent years. San Mateo has already lost more than $4 million in RDA money to the state and is set to lose another $4.3 million, Matthews said. Theyve managed to wiggle around the law to raid our funds, Matthews said. Somehow theyve managed to get to our money through technicalities. Matthews hopes the courts will side with cities over the state in this battle. RDA money is one of a citys biggest tools in creating jobs, said Foster City Finance Director Steve Toler. Killing RDAs will almost cut off the engine that drives economic development, Toler said. Toler is also concerned new governance, if a city does decide to keep RDA activities intact with the passage of ABX1 27, will hurt the citys effort to create affordable housing in recent years. A successor agency might try to undo some of the work weve done, Toler said. San Carlos Assistant City Manager Brian Moura said his city supports the League of California Cities and the California Redevelopment Associations plan to le suit against the governor and the Legislature for their illegal and unconstitutional actions. be among the moves. Brown promised voters during his campaign for governor last year that he would not impose tax increases without a vote of the people. He had hoped to ask Californians to extend for up to ve years a series of temporary increases in the sales, vehicle and income taxes approved by the state Legislature in 2009. But he needed two GOP votes in each house of the state Legislature to put that measure on the ballot, and after six months of talks he announced this week that he had lost that battle. The last of those tax increases will expire Thursday. With this years budget debate behind them, Browns fellow Democrats are deciding what type of tax increases might prove more palatable to an electorate that is generally reluctant to tax itself. Among the ideas are an additional tax on the

approved Tuesday night is only the starting point for a larger political ght to come. In true California style, it will be up to voters to decide the biggest issue the governor promised but failed to deliver this year an increase in taxes to help end the states ongoing budget mess. Voters almost certainly will be asked to weigh in on one or more tax proposals in 2012, as well as whether to institute a strict cap on state spending. Public employee unions and anti-tax groups already are gearing up for an intense year of proposed reforms, although its unclear whether one of the Republicans top priorities changes to the public pension system will

with taller plants that may require staking like tomatoes in either the back or center of the box. Shorter plants such as basil, peppers or eggplant should go in front of the tomatoes, and trailing plants such as cucumbers, trailing squash or melons should go at the edge of the box, allowing them the opportunity to trail over the edge.

In hot weather,lettuce needs special care

By Lee Reich

Homegrown lettuce is so tasty and tender for salads. Its also coldhardy, so can be enjoyed almost year round, the earliest salad xings coming from transplants that begin as seeds sown indoors in winter, and the latest ones from plants sheltered beneath plastic or glass tents. But special tricks are needed to pick lettuce from the garden now, when its hot. This time of year, lettuce tends to bolt that is, to flower and make seeds. Once a flower stalk starts pushing up through the whorl of leaves, those leaves turn bitter and tough. Actually, avor plummets even before the stalk becomes evident. Keep a close eye on your lettuces, and youll see that the leaves undergo a slight color change from shiny, vibrant green to dull, slightly bluish green. Like any plant or animal, lettuce has to reach a certain age before it can make seeds and reproduce. So one obvious way to keep your salad bowl lled with tasty lettuce is to keep sowing seeds so you always have young plants to eat. I plant lettuce about every three weeks all summer. Just a little at a time, though, because three weeks after you start eating one planting youll be eating the next sowings harvest.

Spring and fall lettuce rarely bolt because,although the plants might be old enough to go to seed,the days are just too short.
Lettuce also bolts in response to the combination of long days, dry soil and hot temperatures. Spring and fall lettuce rarely bolt because, although the plants might be old enough to go to seed, the days are just too short. You cannot do anything about summers long days, but you can do something about water and heat. Start by always planting lettuce in soil well-enriched with compost, leaves, straw, manure or some other organic material. They all help soil to hold moisture. Also water regularly, which anyway makes lettuce taste better. Lettuce needs the equivalent of 1 inch of water a week, measured into a rain gauge or some other straightsided container. If Mother Nature

doesnt provide water, you do it: once a week with a sprinkler, which takes about an hour; or spread through the week with a drip irrigation system. Yes, you can also do something about the temperature. Just as you cool off by moving out of the sun, so can lettuce. The plants tolerate shade this time of year, so cobble together a temporary wooden or plastic frame for supporting cheesecloth, wooden lathe or some other material that offers about 25 percent shade. Or let your garden space do double duty, and grow lettuce in the dappled shade of cucumbers, squashes, gourds, tomatoes or pole beans trained up stakes or an inclined trellis. Or plant lettuce near the cooler, eastern side of your house or garage. Frilly and red-leafed Lolla Rosa is one of a few lettuce varieties pretty enough to decorate a ower or shrub bed; the dappled shade beneath the other plants will keep Lolla Rosa from bolting, for a while at least. And speaking of varieties, genetics also plays a role in how fast plants bolt, so plant those that are slower to do so. Among the best for growing in sultry summer weather are Blackseeded Simpson, Buttercrunch, Kagran Summer, Salad Bowl, Red Salad Bowl, Oakleaf, Deertongue, Diamond Gem and Graquerelle du Midi.

amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air each year. Those permits could then be bought and sold by the polluters in a marketplace. If a company in Long Beach is 20 percent under its pollution allowance, for example, it can sell the unused portion to a company in San Francisco that has exceeded its quota. The seller company gets to keep the money, so polluters can even make a prot, if the marketplace sets a price above the initial cost of the permit. The amount of emissions allowed would be reduced over time, and the regulations would expand in 2015 to include reneries and fuel distributors, such as oil companies. The cap would reach its lowest level in 2020, when California wants its greenhouse gas emissions reduced to 1990 levels. The delay announced Wednesday comes about three months after a San Francisco Superior Court judge halted work on the program, saying the air board had not properly considered alternative programs, as required by state law. But a state appeals court on Friday no effect onto other public safety departments like probation and the Sheriffs Ofce. If a defendant waives his or her right to a speedy trial, for example, they may remain housed at the county jail longer and therefore contribute to overcrowding. With state prisoners still slated for return to local custody beginning in October, Sheriff Greg Munks said there will be challenges to keep up. As with other county department heads, Munks is still trying to sort out the state budget details and how the pieces of the nancial puzzle t together. He doesnt know yet if the state is reimbursing counties for booking fees and how money for realignment will be divided between the affected departments. Well know more each day but theres a lot of stuff in the plan people havent really thought about, he said. San Mateo County is better poised than some counties because it is already planning a new jail and ofcials have been meeting about the pending prison transfer, Munks said. lead to a re. Also, dont pick up and throw the safe and sane reworks, Haag said. All other incidents are normally related to the use of illegal reworks, he said. Using, selling or having illegal reworks in San Bruno and Pacica will come with a steep ne and the possibility of jail time. A 2008 state law allowed both cities to punish those in possession of 25 pounds or less of dangerous reworks with up to $1,000 ne and/or six months in jail. In 2010, illegal reworks led to 33 $1,000 citations, technically an administrative arrest, in San Bruno and Pacica over the holiday weekend, which was a drop in arrests for both cities. In the 24-hour Fourth of July period, 15 people in San Bruno and 18 people in Pacica were given $1,000 nes, which constitutes as an administrative arrest. San Bruno also had one felony arrest and a juvenile arrest related to reworks. In Pacica, 18 people were arrested for illegal reworks between the hours of midnight Sunday, July 4 and 6 a.m. Monday, July 5. Purchasing legal reworks does not give residents the go-ahead to light them of a possible bond measure at $18 or $25 per $100,000 of a propertys assessed value, Scott wrote. A number of other districts are also considering measures for the November ballot. The San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District is considering asking only Foster City residents to fund a bond to build a fourth elementary school in the city. The Millbrae Elementary School District is also considering a facility bond measure. Both allowed the board to resume work on the program, pending an appeal. That has allowed the board to schedule two public hearings on July 8 and 15 to discuss the plan. The delay in initial compliance lets the program get on its feet without the angst of everybody asking the question are they ready? said Jon Costantino, a senior adviser at a Sacramento law rm who served formerly as the climate change planning manager at the Air Resources Board. He said the delay gives the board a full year to put nishing touches on the program without having to deal with companies dealing with compliance for the rst time. Pressure was building on the program. This lets some of that go, he said. Some environmental groups applauded the boards efforts to allow more time to hone the regulation while not giving up its overall goals. This is a smart and responsible step that also ensures that the greenhouse gas pollution reductions required by the program remain unchanged, said Derek Walker, director of strategic climate initiatives for the Environmental Defense Fund. Having a budget in place is good because it lets local ofcials begin guring out the impacts and adjust their nances. However, Carole Groom, president of the Board of Supervisors said Tuesdays plan still leaves a lot vague. Groom wants more information on the estimated revenue particularly as that is what will hold off deeper trigger cuts. In particular, Groom hates to see more taken from health and human services. Its really painful to take another load from there. It is going to be not just hard but inhumane, she said. The countys Human Services Agency doesnt anticipate any specic trigger cuts, said spokeswoman Amanda Kim, although it is preparing for previously passed cuts that kick in Friday. Beginning July 1, she said, more than 3,000 low-income families with children will see an 8 percent reduction in monthly grants, children and family services will have a $1.6 million decrease and $3 million to $4 million will be lost from the largest program to determine MediCal eligibility. whenever they want. Safe and sane reworks may only be used in the cities that allow sales and during certain times. In San Bruno, reworks can only be used between noon to 10 p.m. through July 3 and from noon until midnight on Monday, July 4, said Hanlon. Fireworks should also be set off on private property rather than on the street. San Bruno also prohibits using legal reworks at any park, school, parking lot or vacant area open to the public. In Pacica, approved reworks can be used or discharged from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. through July 5. Pacica also has restrictions as to where reworks can be set off. Fireworks are prohibited on Manor and Sharp Park beaches. Allowable reworks can be set off at Linda Mar and Rockaway beaches. Residents of San Bruno can call 6167100 to report illegal use of reworks. Residents of Pacica can call 738-7314.

in 2012. The program was passed in December by the board, which said it hoped other states would follow suit since Congress had failed to pass national climate change legislation. This would not affect the stringency of the program or change the amount of emission reductions that the program will achieve, keeping us on track to meet the 2020 target required by AB32, Nichols said. Cap and trade is the key piece of the Californias 2006 climate law called AB32 and will cover 85 percent of the states worst polluters. Nichols said the state would still initiate the regulatory framework for cap and trade in 2012, pending the outcome of an appeal of a lawsuit challenging the program. In general terms, Californias cap-andtrade program works by requiring companies that produce pollution, such as a utility or a renery, to buy permits from the state that allow it to send a specied

ofcials will do everything they can to prevent pink slips. The state Administrative Ofce of the Courts is looking to see if it has any funds to soften the latest $150 million blow but even so there will be at least $6 million taken from the San Mateo County Superior Court, Fitton said. As a result, the court must prioritize criminal matters with time restrictions which will place the brunt of the hits on civil matters. Small claims will take six months instead of 60 days, civil trials could take two to four years for resolution and even child custody disputes might run upward of 18 months. The court wont have closures or furloughs unless mandated by the state but visitors should expect longer lines and shorter hours.

Just in case, special enforcement will be in place throughout the weekend leading up to Monday, July 4, she said. Groups are selling the fireworks deemed safe and sane throughout San Bruno through the Fourth of July. While the sale supports local nonprots, and is in the spirit of celebrating American independence, it is also a time when calls to police and re agencies increase. Many of the accidents that occur while using reworks can be avoided by following the safety directions on the packaging, Fire Chief Dennis Haag said. For example, put fireworks into a bucket with water after use because the fireworks are hotter than one might expect. Placing them in a trash can could

In order to advance a personal ambition in the coming months, it might become necessary to enter into some kind of partnership arrangement, even a unique alliance. Selecting the right person will be crucial.
CanCer (June 21-July 22) -- Its nice of them to of-

fer, but dont let associates attempt to do something for you that you feel you can do better, especially if it involves a matter that needs a personal touch. LeO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There is a strong chance that an unusual development might arise that could affect your material well-being if youre not on top of

it. Heed your instincts in handling the matter. VIrGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- When you select your companions, choose those who are your equal intellectually. Dont consider anyone who cant keep up with your thinking and is nothing but a drag. LIBra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Impressive objectives are reachable, but only if youre prepared to pay whatever price you must in order to achieve them. Unless you focus on success, you could easily be deterred. sCOrPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- In order to win over supporters as well as have possibilities for success, your intentions must be clearly spelled out in advance. Tell it like it is, warts and all. saGITTarIus (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A matter or project in which youre involved can be further adjusted to potentially provide much greater rewards. Study it

closely before you go off in a direction where theres no turning back. CaPrICOrn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- As long as youre realistic, you should be able to renegotiate a matter of significance. You may not get everything you want, but you might be able to rework it a bit. aQuarIus (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- When planning your day, you should put fun and games at the bottom of your list, not at the top. By keeping your priorities in perspective, you should be able to get to do everything you desire. PIsCes (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Although there are periods when you want to work solely on your own, there are also days when a collective effort is far more advantageous. It might be one of those times. arIes (March 21-April 19) -- Instead of concentrat-

ing only on negative factors, trust that something good is on its way that could benefit you in needed ways. Its a development that unites, not divides. Taurus (April 20-May 20) -- In order to help you operate with greater efficacy, your personal affairs might need to be reorganized a bit. Study your modus operandi to see what it is that needs some tweaking. GeMInI (May 21-June 20) -- Seek out those friends or associates who really believe in you and in what youre doing if you think you need some financial or business advice. Theyre the ones wholl be the most positive and helpful. Copyright 2011, United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

In 1821, Nicolas Rieussec changed watchmaking forever with the invention of the first chronograph. Since chronograph literally means writing time the Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph , rewrites timepiece history. Crafted in the Montblanc Manufacture in Le Locle, Switzerland, this masterpiece is a worthy tribute to its visionary namesake. Monopusher chronograph, self-winding manufacture movement. 30 min. and 60 sec. rotating disc counters fixed on the counter bridge.
