A proposal for a five-story
apartment building with 268 units
and 22 two-story townhouses on
Rollins Road and Carolan Avenue
near the Broadway Caltrain sta-
tion was submitted to the city of
Burlingame Friday.
It is one of the largest such pro-
posals the city has seen for some
time and while some seem to favor
the project for its proximity to
Caltrain, trafc remains a concern
for others.
The Summerhill Housing Group
submitted its application for
approval of a new 5.4-acre apart-
ment and townhouse development
at 1008-1028 Carolan Ave. and
1007-1025 Rollins Road. This is
the current site of Burlingame
Hyundai, Cammisa Luxury Cars,
Enterprise Car Rental and other
auto-related uses. At the time of
the housing element update in
2009, a multi-family zoning over-
lay was placed upon the site to
accommodate the proposed uses.
It was adopted as a policy in 2002,
but the zoning was officially
changed in 2010.
Its been a long time since the
city has seen a project like this,
said City Planning Manager
Kevin Gardiner.
I dont think the city has seen
anything this big in a few
decades, he said. I think its a
combination of availability of
these parcels. Existing sites
available tend to be smaller and
its an unusual collection of siz-
able parcels.
Councilman Jerry Deal said its
the perfect area for it and noted the
public seems to be for the project.
Its close to Caltrain and with

Although San Brunos
Crestmoor neighborhood is most-
ly rebuilt three and half years after
the 2010 Pacic Gas and Electric
Company pipeline explosion and
re, the City Council will be decid-
ing which neighborhood projects
are top priority since more money
has been spent from a $50 million
trust established by PG&E than
The total cost of the remaining
projects is about $34 million,
which exceeds the expected $11
million-$14.5 million that may
be available from the trust estab-
lished for costs
related to recov-
ery and rebuild-
ing after the
explosion and
re. Because of
this, the city
will vote
Tuesday night
to prioritize
projects and
that higher priority projects be
completed, according to a staff
report. Staff time and additional
projects contributed to the lack of
funds needed to complete the
entire project list.

Awell-regarded jail re-entry pro-
gram runs out of federal funding at
the end of the month but the coun-
ty plans to step in to bridge the
gap until a new long-term program
Achieve 180, which helps tamp
down recidivism and successfully
reintegrate inmates by offering
emergency assistance, counseling
and employment referrals, operat-
ed on a ve-year $2.94 million
federal grant. The efforts preceded
what the county does under
realignment as part of its Service
Connect program due to the coun-
ty being one of only 14 jurisdic-
tions awarded a federal Second
Chance Act grant and one of only
two that focused on jail rather than
prison populations.
Realignment has ramped up
over the last couple years while
Achieve 180 was ramping down,
said Steve Kaplan, director of the
countys Behavior Health and
Recovery Services.
Kaplan also credits the Board of
Supervisors for stepping up in the
middle of the 2009 recession with
a $350,000 annual promise of
required hard matching funds for
the grant.

gone at the end of March, so is

California man sentenced
in laser pointer incident
FRESNO A Central California
man convicted of pointing a high-
powered laser at a police helicopter
was sentenced Monday to spend 14
years in federal prison.
Sergio Patrick Rodriguez, a 26-year-
old Clovis resident, was accused of
pointing a green laser 13 times more
powerful than common pointers at a
Fresno Police Department helicopter
in 2012.
The helicopter had been called to an
apartment complex where an emer-

attempting to interfere with safe oper-
ation of aircraft and aiming a laser
pointer at an aircraft.
While handing down the sentence,
U.S. District Judge Lawrence J.

act with deadly potential. Rodriguez

prosecutors said, that includes several
probation violations and gang aflia-

can blind pilots and lead to crashes. In
2013, there were 3,960 reports of peo-
ple shining lasers at aircraft over the
United States, according to the Federal
Aviation Administration.
The same Fresno jury found
Rodriguez and his 23-year-old girl-
friend, Jennifer Lorraine Coleman,
guilty of charges in the case in
December. Coleman is scheduled to be
sentenced in May.

Building for a more transit-oriented future
is on the minds of San Mateo city ofcials
and the developers of a proposed 55-foot
residential complex on El Camino Real in
San Mateo, however, some residents fear it
will increase trafc.
According to the pre-application for the
Hillsdale Terrace Mixed Use project, three
parcels, including the site of the old Taxis
Restaurant, from 28th to 27th avenues on El
Camino Real, would be turned into a ve-
story building with ground oor retail, three
levels of underground parking and 68 units
for sale between one and three bedrooms.
There would be a total of 136 bedrooms, 172
parking spaces and 17,328 square feet of
retail space.
The city would have to permit a developer
request for a state high-density bonus to
increase the amount of units by 35 percent
and will provide a 15 percent, very-low
income, affordability component, said City
Planner Tricia Schimpp.
The pre-application was wrapped at a Feb.
25 Planning Commission study session
and, after hearing about parking and design
element concerns, the developer is now
tweaking its nal application.
Although Hillsdale Terrace is in the very
early stages of planning, the current site is
being underutilized and is an appropriate site
for a mixed use, housing and retail facility,
Hillsdale Terrace applicant Albert Costa
To reach the 55-foot height max, the proj-
ect will need to meet criteria approved by the
City Council, Schimpp said. The project
should provide amenities such as landscaped
plazas and covered parking, have a high
quality design and be visually related to sur-
rounding buildings. In addition, the extra
height shouldnt create adverse shadow or
visual impacts on surrounding residences
and the citys infrastructure needs to be ade-
quate to accommodate the proposed develop-
ment, according to a city staff report.
Although residents of the adjacent neigh-
borhood are fearful of parking impacts, the
hope is to eventually reduce the amount of
cars through developments like this near
public transit, Schimpp said.
Under the [transit-oriented development]
influence, youre trying to restrict the
amount of automobiles as much as possi-
ble, Schimpp said. The future, the vision
of the TOD is to really try and encourage
people to be more pedestrian and walk or
bike and have facilities around there that are
easy to get to.
But neighbors fear the already bad trafc
and parking circumstances along 27th and
28th avenues will be aggravated by the
increase of housing and retail.
Neighbors are very concerned about inad-
equate parking as it exists in their neighbor-
hood. They feel like they dont have enough
parking so, in the addition of the complex,
they feel like it would be affecting their
parking supply as it stands, Schimpp said.
Walter Schwartz lives on 27th Avenue and
based on the developers pre-application, he
fears street parking will become even more
competitive and the increased trafc would
be harmful to the neighborhood.
The area is already dense; theres a re sta-
tion, two schools, a church and two senior
housing complexes all within a half mile
from the site, Schwartz said. Theres little
parking close to El Camino Real and the pro-
posed ratio of 1.3 parking spaces per two-
bedroom unit is not sufcient, Schwartz
Schwartz said he was somewhat relieved to
nd that the planning commissioners shared
many of the neighbors concerns including
parking and made design suggestions.
The formal application will include the
commissioners and publics input and
Hillsdale Terrace will work on providing
parking as outlined by state and city guide-
lines, Costa said.
One great thing its planning on keeping
in its proposal, Costa added, is having the
parking three oors underground. Its more
difcult and costly for the developer but bet-
ter for the community. No one wants to stare
at an ugly parking structure, Costa said.
The developer will follow the California
Green Building Standards Code and create a
green roof that will be landscaped with low-
maintenance indigenous species of plants,
according to the report.
Schwartz said he thought it was a clever
idea and would compliment the area if done
Costa said its important to provide peo-
ple with open space and the project will
include attractive landscaping in the front of
the building and a large outdoor plaza type
space in the back to provide a buffer between
the apartments and the existing neighbors.
The pre-application was preliminary and
will evolve as Hillsdale Terrace moves for-
ward with suggestions and city staff support,
Costa said.
We just got out of a study session so were
just hoping to work with all the city staff
and the commissioners to create a successful
project, Costa said. Were excited to make
a beautiful project for this blighted site.
There is no current timeline for a formal
application submittal or planning process.

SAN FRANCISCO Sniper sabotage of a
Pacic Gas & Electric Co. substation last
year prompted a California lawmaker to
introduce legislation on Monday that would
require state utilities to beef up security.
State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo,
announced the proposed legislation at a
press conference in San Francisco.
Hill said the April shooting attack at a sub-
station near San Jose exposed serious secu-
rity holes. The sniper bullets knocked out 17
transformers powering parts of Silicon
Valley and caused $15 million in damage.
Ofcials rerouted power to avoid a black-
out, but it took PG&E workers nearly a
month to repair the damage. No arrests have
been made.
Former Federal Energy Regulatory
Commission Chairman Jon Wellinghoff said
the attack on the grid was an act of terrorism.
The incident is under investigation by the
FBI, which says it has found no indication of
Rules for protecting physical sites such as
transformers and substations are voluntary,
though FERC is working
on instituting mandatory
compliance policies.
Hills bill would require
utilities to assess security
risks and make needed
improvements. The bill
would also require utili-
ties to better coordinate
responses to security
breaches with law
Hill said the security measures are needed
to prevent terrorist attacks on the states and
nations electrical grid system.
A padlocked gate prevented law enforce-
ment ofcials from getting into the PG&E
facility attacked by snipers, and authorities
left when they were unable to see the damage
or anything amiss. PG&E ofcials respond-
ing to alarms discovered the damaged trans-
formers about 90 minutes later. By then,
nearly 55,000 gallons of oil had leaked from
the transformers.
We cant count on PG&E to do the right
thing, Hill said. We need to put in place
things that prevent that from happening

SACRAMENTO School districts and the
state would be required to do a better job of
tracking students who miss class under pro-
posed legislation announced Monday that is
designed to lower Californias dropout rate.
The package of bills would write into law
recommendations from a report released by
Attorney General Kamala Harris in
The report, entitled In School and On
Track, says 30 percent of the states elemen-
tary school students miss enough school each
year to harm their academ-
ic performance.
The report says about
one million students were
considered truant in the
2012-2013 school year,
costing their school dis-
tricts a combined $1.4 bil-
lion in funding the state
distributes based on stu-
dents attendance.
The law denes truancy as being absent or
arriving more than 30 minutes late without a
valid excuse three times in a school year.

Thank you thank
you thank you.
This is what I hear
over and over, year
after year, from
families that we
serve. Either
verbally or in hand-written cards or letters
families say thank you: Thank for your
help; Thank you for all you have done to
make this process easier; Thank you for
making this final tribute to my mother one
which will be fondly remembered; Thank
you for your advice; Thank you for being
there for us at a time we needed you most;
Thank you for making it all easy for us;
Thank you for being a friend, etc. To hear
Thank you time and time again is a
confirmation for me that our Chapel of the
Highlands crew is doing their best to serve
families whove been through a death, in an
appropriate and professional manner, and
that we are doing the right thing in caring
for families during a difficult situation, in
turn making it more of a comfort for them.
Normally saying Youre welcome is
the correct response. Youre welcome, or
You are welcome, can be taken a number
of different ways. Generally it means you
are always a welcome guest. It can also be
taken as a blessing meaning you wish
wellness on the person who thanked you.
Wishing wellness or health to anyone is a
nice gesture. In recent years though we all
have witnessed the term Youre welcome
being substituted with Thank you back at
the person who is doing the thanking. This
is OK, but saying Youre welcome first
is taken as a hospitable and warm gesture.
Now that Thank you and Youre
welcome have been established, I would
like to say thank you back to the families we
serve: Thank you for supporting the Chapel
of the Highlands. Thank you for your
faithful patronage. Because of you we have
been able to continue with our high
standards and excellent level of service for
many years, since 1952. Thank you to those
families who weve helped so many times in
the past. Thank you to the new families
whove discovered that we offer them
respect and provide the dignified care that
their loved one deserves.
Your support, and the continued interest
from the community in our service, is what
keeps us going strong and available when
we are needed. Our costs have always been
considered fair, and the funds taken in for
our services are also very much appreciated.
Those Chapel of the Highlands funds along
with our support sifts back to the community
in different ways. Donations to local causes,
along with the donation of time through
membership in service organizations such as
Lions, I.C.F., Historical Society, Chamber
of Commerce, etc. is natural for us. Giving
back as a volunteer via these groups helps in
binding us with our neighbors, together
creating a better community for the future.
All in all there are many ways to say
Thank you. Doing so in a variety of ways
can create a circle of gratitude, in turn
making our community a better place.
If you ever wish to discuss cremation,
funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to
call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF
THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650)
588-5116 and we will be happy to guide you
in a fair and helpful manner. For more info

KUALALUMPUR, Malaysia In an
age when people assume that any bit of
information is just a click away, the
thought that a jetliner could simply dis-
appear over the ocean for more than two
days is staggering. But Malaysia
Airlines Flight MH370 is hardly the
rst reminder of how big the seas are,
and of how agonizing it can be to try to
nd something lost in them.
It took two years to nd the main
wreckage of an Air France jet that
plunged into the Atlantic Ocean in
2009. Closer to the area between
Malaysia and Vietnam where Saturdays
ight vanished, it took a week for debris
from an Indonesian jet to be spotted in
2007. Today, the mostly intact fuselage
still sits on the bottom of the ocean.
The world is a big place, said
Michael Smart, professor of aerospace
engineering at the University of
Queensland in Australia. If it happens
to come down in the middle of the ocean
and its not near a shipping lane or
something, who knows how long it
could take them to nd?
Amid the confusion, ofcials
involved in the search say the
Malaysian jet may have made a U-turn,
adding one more level of uncertainty to
the effort to nd it. They even suggest
that the plane could be hundreds of kilo-
meters from where it was last detected.
How can jet disappear?
In the ocean, its not hard
EUREKA One of the largest earth-
quakes to hit California in decades rat-
tled the states northern coast, but its
depth and distance from shore reduced
the impact on land, where there were
no reports of injuries or damage, sci-
entists and authorities said on
The magnitude-6.8 quake struck at
10:18 p.m. PDT Sunday and was cen-
tered 50 miles west of Eureka and
about 10 miles beneath the Pacific
seabed, according to the U.S.
Geological Survey. It was initially
reported as a magnitude-6.9, but later
By late Monday morning, it had
already produced 20 aftershocks of
magnitude-3.5 or larger, and more were
expected over the coming days, said
Keith Knudsen, deputy director of the
USGSs Earthquake Science Center in
Menlo Park.
Knudsen said there was also a 5 to 10
percent chance of a larger quake in the
area in the next week.
Sundays quake was felt widely
across the region, but both re and
sheriffs ofcials in Humboldt County
said they had no reports of any damage
or injuries.

Generals court-martial is thrown into jeopardy
FORTBRAGG, N.C. The sexual assault case against an
Army general was thrown into jeopardy Monday when the
judge said the military may have improp-
erly pressed ahead with a trial to send a
message about its determination to curb
rape and other widespread misconduct.
Judge Col. James Pohl refused to dis-
miss the charges against Brig. Gen.
Jeffrey A. Sinclair but offered the defense
another chance to plea-bargain the case
with a set of military ofcials not previ-
ously involved with the matter.
The twist comes with the Pentagon
under heavy pressure from Congress and beyond to combat
rape and other sex crimes in the military. Late Monday, the
Senate unanimously approved a bill making big changes in
the military justice system to deal with sexual assault.
The judge reviewed newly disclosed emails in Sinclairs
case and said he found the appearance of unlawful command
inuence in Fort Bragg ofcials decision to reject a plea
bargain with the general in January.
Under the military code of justice, the decision was sup-
posed to be decided solely on the evidence, not its broader
political implications. Pohl said the emails showed that the
military ofcials who rejected the plea bargain had dis-
cussed a letter from the accusers lawyer.
More choices, more rides bring transit renaissance
LOS ANGELES With more trains and buses to take, and
the appeal of using travel time for pursuits other than dodg-
ing trafc, Americans are taking greater advantage of a ren-
aissance in public transit, according to a new report.
The number of rides taken on public buses, trains and sub-
ways has fully recovered from a dip during the Great
Recession. And with services restored following economy-
driven cutbacks, ridership appears set to resume what had
been a steady increase. In 2013, the number of trips stood at
nearly 10.7 billion nationally, the highest since 1956,
according to data compiled by the American Public
Transportation Association and released Monday.
Of course, the nations population has been expanding,
so there are more people to ride the rails and buses. The
associations numbers dont mean that the average U.S. res-
ident is taking public transit more often than in the 1950s,
when investments in highways and a growth in car owner-
ship began enticing Americans to move away from cities
and heralded a decline in mass transit.

the electrication, the Broadway Station
will be open, he said. Theres also a shut-
tle that stops at the Broadway Station to
bring people to Millbrae.
City staff anticipates that an
Environmental Impact Report will be pre-
pared as part of development review process.
Staff also anticipates a year of processing
time will be necessary to navigate the devel-
opment approval process. The entire project
le may be reviewed in the ofces of the
Community Development Departments
Planning Division, according to
Community Development Director Bill
Theres no set idea of an opening date of
the development if approved by the city,
said Elaine Breeze, vice president of devel-
opment at Summerhill. Its a wonderful loca-
tion for additional housing though, she said.
Were excited by this opportunity to
work with the city of Burlingame and its res-
idents on this proposal to help meet its need
for additional high-quality housing opportu-
nities near public transportation and the
Broadway Business District, she said.
The site area includes 53.7 dwelling units
per acre. Maximum height would be 63 feet
for the apartments and 33 feet, six inches for
the townhouses. Apartments would be ve
stories and townhouses would be two sto-
ries. There would be 268 rental apartment
units and 22 townhouse-style units for pur-
chase. There would be one to three-bedroom
apartments and two to three-bedroom town-
houses. Units would range from 696 square
feet to 1,496 square feet for apartments and
1,507 square feet to 2,226 square feet for
townhomes, according to the proposal sub-
mitted Friday, March 7.
The developer had a meeting with neigh-
bors, which Councilwoman Ann Keighran
and Vice Mayor Terry Nagel attended. Acon-
cern for some neighbors in the area was
parking, Nagel said. Any inll development
building within unused and underutilized
lands is going to face scrutiny from
neighbors, she said.
The major feedback from neighbors is
there needs to be more parking, Nagel
said. [The developers are] very aware of that
issue. It was wise of them to reach out to the
community early.
The company has proposed 524 spaces,
with 466 for apartment units and 58 for the
townhome-style units. There would be semi-
subterranean parking for the apartments and
surface parking for both the apartments and
townhome units, along with individual
garages for the townhouses. There would
also be 144 spaces of bike parking, accord-
ing to the application.

WASHINGTON The Obama administra-
tion is stepping up its attempts to court
Chinas support for isolating Russia over its
military intervention in Ukraine.
With official comments from China
appearing studiously neutral since the
Ukraine crisis began, President Barack
Obama spoke to Chinese President Xi
Jinping late Sunday in a bid to get Beijing
off the fence.
The call was their rst known conversa-
tion since Russian forces took control of
Ukraines pro-Moscow Crimea region. It
came amid signals that Russian President
Vladimir Putin was hardening his position
on Crimea, which is due to vote on joining
Russia in a referendum this weekend that the
U.S. and its allies have vowed not to recog-
In making his case, Obama appealed to
Chinas well-known and vehement opposi-
tion to outside intervention in other
nations domestic affairs, according to a
White House statement.
However, it remained unclear whether
China would side with the U.S. and Europe or
with Moscow, which has accused the West of
sparking the crisis in Ukraine with inappro-
priate meddling in the internal affairs of
the former Soviet republic. China is a fre-
quent ally of Russia in the U.N. Security
Council, where both wield veto power.
In his conversation with Xi, Obama noted
his overriding objective of restoring
Ukraines sovereignty and territorial integri-
ty and ensuring the Ukrainian people are
able to determine their own future without
foreign interference, the White House said.
It said the two leaders agreed on the
importance of upholding principles of sov-
ereignty and territorial integrity, both in the
context of Ukraine and also for the broader
functioning of the international system.
They also afrmed their interest in nding a
peaceful resolution to the dispute.
Obamas call to Xi follows a conversation
last week between his national security
adviser, Susan Rice, and Chinese state coun-
selor Yang Jiechi.
Hoping to isolate Russia, U.S. woos China on Ukraine
Probation Department, Human Services
Agency, Sheriffs Office and County
Managers Office to create a new way of
providing the services to Achieve 180s
Although the work is well into the plan-
ning stages, it wont be ready by April 1
when Achieve 180 falls off, County
Manager John Maltbie will tell the Board
of Supervisors at Tuesdays meeting.
Maltbie planned to tell the board it
might be asked to help out with emergency
funding but Deputy County Manager Mike
Callagy said BHRS found the needed
$165,000 in its reserves to fund the pro-
gram until the new model of case manage-
ment and treatment plans can be launched.
The new version known as the San
Mateo County Collaborative Re-entry
Plan really more a continuation than
an expansion, Kaplan said will be simi-
lar in nature but may also include inmates
who wouldnt qualify for Achieve 180. If
those inmates fit the realignment criteria,
the county can maximize that state money
but a different plan will be needed for those
outside the parameters, Kaplan said.
One helpful piece, particularly those
with mental health needs, is that many of
those individuals will be eligible for bene-
fits under health reform, he said.
Kaplan said the plan is to continue
Achieve 180s successes. The program,
funded by the grant to serve 200 individu-
als a year, has a success rate the polar
opposite of the overall jail population. A
new report of more current data is currently
in the works but Kaplan said the last update
about a year and a half ago shows that,
while the Sheriffs Office historically
reports 70 percent recidivism, the Achieve
180 rate is about 70 percent of no new
offenses or reincarcerations. Of that
remaining 30 percent, very few were
felonies and those felonies were not vio-
lent crimes, Kaplan said.
Going forward, Kaplan said hed like to
see an expansion of the programs mentor-
ing component and work with the children
of the incarcerated.

The whole picture
With all due respect, your article Canceled
health plans get reprieve (San Mateo Daily
Journal, March 6) is mostly irrelevant to
your readers.
Why? Coveredca.com, our state run
exchange, has ruled that it will not permit an
extension to the canceled plans in deance
of President Obama and to the detriment of
hundreds of thousands of Californians. And
when help is sought from state sen. Jerry
Hill, his assistant says that he is too busy
working on other items to get involved with
this. What an outrage and what an insult.
According to his staff, he will not even
voice an opinion on this subject. Is the abil-
ity to afford health insurance too insigni-
cant an issue for Mr. Hill? At least the presi-
dent is attempting to help the millions of
Americans who had their plans canceled and
must now pay exorbitant rates for a lower
quality plan. Mr. Hill, on the other hand, is
content to see his constituents twist in the
So, Mr. editor, please do not leave the
false impression that there is any relief for
Journal readers from the onerous increase in
health insurance premiums.

Belmont City Council:
Collaborators wanted
The new Belmont City Council has one
empty slot vacated by Christine Wozniak.
In the application for the vacated City
Council position it states: What do you
hope to accomplish, and how do you see
yourself best collaborating with the current
City Council? In their recent campaign,
three councilmembers voiced their strong
disdain for a council that openly debates dis-
senting opinions, challenges staff interpre-
tations and recommendations and openly
questions staff about unsupported state-
ments. Yet, isnt this the role of our elected
ofcials to: voice concerns about the direc-
tion of city management, ask challenging
and revealing questions and openly air all
sides of an issue? Now they want to bring on
another collaborator to ratify their sync
think. Whos to check the checker thats not
in check, and isnt checking anymore? I
think voters need and deserve a minority
report instead of another sheep in the herd.
In my opinion, the impression is that if you
are not a collaborator, dont bother to apply.

It is deplorable to hear Democratic presi-
dential candidate to-be Hillary Rodham
Clinton compare Russian President Putin to
Hitler. Even worse is the nonsense expressed
by Republican state assemblyman and guber-
natorial candidate Tim Donnelly comparing
our democratically elected U.S. president to
the likes of Hitler, Stalin or Kim Jong. We
expect better from them.
Both Clinton, a graduate of Wellesley
College, Yale University, Yale Law School,
former rst lady, U.S. senator, secretary of
state and Donnelly, nine months at the
University of Michigan, a graduate of UC
Irvine, businessman, Minuteman Party
leader and current California assemblyman,
do damage to their own reputations and
standing by making such statements.
Ms. Clintons handlers desperate efforts
to soften her images are not being advanced
by her comments. It was the late Hugo
Chavez of Venezuela, a graduate of
Venezuelas Military Academy, former
Venezuelan president and dictator, that com-
pared former President George W. Bush with
the devil during U.N. proceedings, but his
statement surprised no one and did nothing
to damage his already tarnished reputation.
Comments of this nature make light of the
horric and incomprehensible tragic event
we call The Holocaust, showing no respect
for the victims and for the voter.
Lets hope that reason prevails and creeps
back into the minds of these wanna-be lead-
ers and stop them from uttering such
thoughtless rhetoric and regain their dignity.

California drought
The California drought has largely been
exacerbated by misguided government poli-
cies that encouraged large-scale agricultural
farming. Agriculture consumes 80 percent of
available water while contributing a minus-
cule 2 percent of the state economy. Farmers
continue to grow alfalfa, rice and other
thirsty crops. Their resource usage has been
heavily subsidized by the government and,
according to The Economist, they have
paid a paltry 15 percent of the capital costs
of the federal system that delivers much of
the water to their elds.
Thus, farmers have no incentive to ef-
ciently irrigate their farmlands. The rainy
season has less than ve weeks to go before
the onset of spring and summer which will
bake much of California and exacerbate the
likelihood of wildres. The water table has
decreased in many areas prompting farmers
to drill deeper to reach groundwater further
depleting aquifers.
In January, Gov. Jerry Brown issued a
drought declaration and urged Californians to
cut water usage by 20 percent. One-hundred
and eighty-seven million dollars of federal
aid coupled with $687 million of California
aid should bring some relief.
However, what are sorely missing are
details of how the funds will be spent. Much
greater pressure needs to be directed at farm-
ers where the payback would be far greater. If
homeowners are encouraged to let their
lawns die, perhaps golf enthusiasts could
nd some other leisure pursuits and let golf
courses suffer the same fate.

Daylight saving time
Adrienne Tissiers reminder guest perspec-
tive Keeping up with your kit in the March
8 edition of the Daily Journal made more
sense in the old days when daylight saving
time and standard time were six months
apart. Many people have probably not
noticed the slow creep of daylight saving
time into the calendar. Currently, daylight
time lasts eight months, and standard time a
mere four. There are people who want to do
away with standard time altogether. No need
to worry about those batteries yet.

Sarah Palin, at the CPAC Convention said
Our president bloviates and wears mom
jeans while Vladimir Putin wrestles bears and
drills for oil.
Sarah didnt know what bloviate meant,
but fortunately wordsmith Pat Buchanan was
there to explain. With the praise for Putin
coming from Guiliani, Palin and other great
minds at CPAC, one is surprised he wasnt
invited to give the keynote address.
If Sarah hates mom jeans that much, she
has a lot of heartache in store for her after
the next presidential election. I understand
Hillary favors them for casual wear.

The icebox
t was time to face the fridge. Id put off
the distasteful chore for weeks
months really, if were being honest
in this kitchen klatch and the fall clean-
ing to-do list where the task began was
about to be relabeled spring cleaning. Plus
it felt odd to have obsessively scrubbed
down the kitchen to the point of a tooth-
brush around the oven dials but not yet tack-
led whatever monster lurked behind those
innocuous stainless steel double doors.
For the house-
cleaning record,
Im pretty good at
keeping the
refrigerator mys-
teries at bay. Im
not one for sniff-
ing the milk,
shaking off con-
rmation that the
expired date was
back before the
Gregorian calen-
dar kicked in and
putting it back on
the shelf certain
that somebody else will undertake the labo-
rious task of stepping three paces to the
garbage can.
But even with a fairly regular checking of
the vegetable and deli drawers, time has a
way of letting the refrigerator collect sou-
venirs from snacks past, dinners-turned-left-
overs and the ingredients of culinary plans
that never transpired. That last corn tortilla,
crumbling around the edges, but taking up
an entire bag despite the two freshly pur-
chased replacement packages sitting on top
of it. Bits and pieces of chopped cilantro
that wiggled their way out of the mise en
place bowl and fell between the water bot-
tles and wedges into corners. Wine bottle
drips. That feta container that never closed
properly and dumped crumbles far and wide.
Finger smudges from riing to the very
back of the crowded refrigerator to conrm
that despite all the food there is in fact
nothing to eat. Smears of egg whites, now
hardened like glue, on the door shelf under-
neath the barbecue sauce bottle darn,
thought that cracked egg had been entirely
cleaned months ago.
Point is, refrigerators have a way of mak-
ing even the most fastidious of cleaners and
organizers feel, for lack of a better word,
lthy. This was time to forget easy rearrang-
ing of salad dressing bottles and throwing
out bacon that lost the ght before it could
hit a frying pan. This was a time for gloves,
cleaner, elbow grease, willpower and the
misguided condence that once removed the
various shelves would actually t back in
the right grooves at the preferred heights.
This type of deep cleaning is eye-open-
ing, mainly to the fact that obviously in my
household horseradish needed purchasing
multiple times over just as many years and
that chocolate pudding cups hold onto their
looks better than a fading Hollywood star.
But thats why the gods invented preserva-
tives, because nobody is going to use an
entire jar of tahini before the use-by date.
The biohazard endeavor known as refriger-
ator cleaning also unveiled that a stick of
butter melted into a lake on the refrigerator
oor but hidden under the vegetable bin
where in the world did that come from and
how did it melt? also tends to collect dust
particles and the occasional dog hair. Like I
said, lthy. Although the fur strands does
give a little more credence to my rhetorical-
ly asking the dog who drank all the juice. I
always knew that lack of an opposable
thumb was just an excuse on his sneaky
part. Now that Ive uncovered his secret dex-
terity, perhaps he can earn his keep tidying
up the perishables next time.
Refrigerator maintenance is a dirty job but
somebodys got to do it. Unfortunately, that
somebody ended up being me.

Stocks drifted to a slightly lower n-

a blend of discouraging economic data
from China and Japan as well as ongo-

into Ukraine.
Major market indexes pared their
losses as the day drew to a close, aided
by some high-ying stocks, including
Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Chiquita

In the absence of U.S. economic data,
investors focused on news that Chinas
exports slumped 18 percent in
February. The report reinforced fears
about the outlook for the worlds sec-
ond-largest economy.
In addition, Japan reported a record
current account decit for January and
lowered its economic growth estimate
for the October-December quarter to 0.7
percent from 1 percent.

NEWYORK McDonalds is ghting to
hold onto customers in the U.S. and all
that snow didnt help.
The worlds biggest hamburger chain said
Monday that sales fell 1.4 percent in
February at established U.S. locations. It
blamed the harsh winter weather, but con-
ceded that challenging industry dynamics
also played a role.
After years of outperforming its rivals,
McDonalds has been struggling to boost
sales as people ock to places like Chipotle
and Five Guys Burgers and Fries. Those
chains have popped up quickly across the
country by positioning themselves as a
step up from traditional fast food in terms of
quality, for a little extra money. They also
offer greater customization, meaning diners
can dictate exactly what toppings they
Executives at McDonalds Corp., based in
Oak Brook, Ill., acknowledge Americans
changing demands when it comes to fast
A long time ago, mass appeal had to be
mass appeal, Jeff Stratton, the president of
McDonalds USA, said in an interview with
the Associated Press last month. Thats
not necessarily the case anymore today.
So the companys restaurants are adapting
to a world where McDonalds traditional
strength consistency isnt always
enough. For example, McDonalds is
rolling out new prep tables that can hold
more toppings and sauces, a sign that it
plans to give customers greater variety.
In Southern California, the company is
even testing a build-your-own-burger
concept that lets people use tablets to tap
out the bread, cheese and other toppings
they want on their burgers. Executives say
results are promising so far, but rolling out
the offering across its more than 14,000
U.S. locations would require considerable
changes to its kitchens.
It would also need the backing of the inde-
pendent franchisees that own and operate
the majority of its restaurants in the U.S.
In the meantime, McDonalds has made
other changes to its menu, including the
option to get egg whites in breakfast sand-
wiches, and the addition of chicken
McWraps, which are intended to appeal to
people who want fresher, healthier food.
Globally, McDonalds said sales declined
0.3 percent at locations open at least 13
months in February. It warned that its muted
performance so far this year could hurt rst-
quarter prot margins.
In region encompassing the Middle East,
Africa and Asia, sales declined 2.6 percent.
The company cited weakness in Japan and
Australia, as well as a shift in the timing of
the Chinese New Year.
Europe was a relative bright spot, with
sales up 0.6 percent on a strong perform-
ance in the U.K. and growth in France.
McDonalds has more than 35,000 loca-
tions in more than 100 countries.

WASHINGTON Michael Dunns con-
viction of attempted murder but not actu-
al murder in the shooting death of black
teenager Jordan Davis prompted the cre-
ation of hashtag (hash)dangerousblackkids
on Twitter. Users posted photos of black
babies and toddlers, spoong the fear that
Dunn testied he felt before opening re on
a car full of teens at a convenience store.
That was the calling card of Black Twitter,
a small corner of the social media giant
where an unabashedly black spin on life
gets served up 140 characters at a time.
Black Twitter holds court on pretty much
everything from President Barack Obama to
the latest TVreality show antics. But Black
Twitter can also turn activist quickly. When
it does, things happen like the cancella-
tion of a book deal for a juror in the George
Zimmerman trial, or the demise of
Zimmermans subsequent attempt to star at
celebrity boxing.
Catchy hashtags give clues that the
tweeting in question is a Black Twitter
Its kind of like the black table in the
lunchroom, sort of, where people with like
interests and experiences, and ways of talk-
ing and communication, lump together and
talk among themselves, said Tracy
Clayton, a blogger and editor at Buzzfeed
known on Twitter as (at)brokeymcpoverty.
Black Twitter brings the fullness of
black humanity into the social network and
that is why it has become so fascinating,
said Kimberly C. Ellis, who has a doctorate
in American and Africana Studies, tweets as
(at)drgoddess and is studying Black Twitter
for her upcoming book, The Bombastic
Brilliance of Black Twitter.
According to a Pew Research Center
report, despite fewer blacks being on the
Internet than whites 80 percent and 87
percent, respectively more blacks uses
Twitter: 22 percent of those blacks who
were online used Twitter in 2013, compared
with 16 percent of online whites.
Meredith Clark, a doctoral candidate at
the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill who is writing her dissertation on
Black Twitter, likened it to Freedoms
Journal, the rst African-American news-
paper in the United States. On that publica-
tions rst front page in 1827, it declared:
We wish to plead our own cause. Too long
have others spoken for us.

national health care law, are gambling they
can turn voters against two billionaire broth-
ers funding the attacks even if few
Americans would recognize the pair on the
In an accelerating counteroffensive stretch-
ing from the Senate chamber to Alaska,
Democrats are denouncing Charles and David
Koch, the key gures behind millions of dol-
lars in conservative TV ads hammering
Democratic candidates and their ties to
President Barack Obama.
Democrats depict the Kansas-based Koch
(pronounced Coke) brothers as self-serving
oil barons who pay huge sums to try to buy
elections and advance their agenda of low
taxes and less regulation. And theyre using
unusually harsh language in the Senate.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says the
Koch-nanced ads against Democrats and the
health care law contain lies made up from
whole cloth.
I guess if you make that much money, you
can make these immoral decisions, Reid, D-
Nev., said in a recent Senate speech. The
Koch brothers are about as un-American as
anyone I can imagine.
Republican Sen. Jerry Moran of Kansas
defended the Kochs and compared Reids
remarks to the communist-baiting tactics of
Joseph McCarthy.
The Democrats strategy depends on per-
suading enough Americans that the Koch
brothers, who rarely appear in public, are so
signicant and troubling that voters should
reject the Republican candidates beneting
from their ads.

EBay rejects Icahns
nominees for board
SAN JOSE EBay is urging shareholders
to support its directors and reject the pair
put up by Carl Icahn.
The two sides traded barbs Monday in the
latest round in the ongoing tussle between
the e-commerce company and the activist
investor who wants to split it in two.
Icahn and eBay began their dispute in
January, when Icahn disclosed a less than 1
percent stake in the company.
He wants eBay to spin off its PayPal
mobile commerce arm, which is growing
revenue faster than the rest of the company.
EBay, on the other hand, strongly believes
PayPal should stay part of the company.
EBay Inc. said Monday its four directors
up for reelection CEO John Donahoe,
company co-founder and managing director
Fred Anderson, Intuit co-founder Scott
Cook, and former Agilent Technologies

ed by shareholders.

In an online post Monday, Icahn reiterat-
ed that he believes PayPal should be spun
off, the directors up for reelection should
resign, and his candidates for the board
should be voted in.
He has complained that Donahoe has not
acted in the best interest of shareholders.
For example, he said he believes eBay sold
video-chat site Skype prematurely and cost
shareholders $4 billion.

It was a beautiful day at Orange Park in
South San Francisco Monday as Brandon
Ramsey led his Riordan varsity baseball team
into the visitors dugout at Bob Brian Field.
It was a homecoming of sorts for the South
City native, who grew up a ve-minute drive
from Orange Park. The former Serra star is in
his seventh year as a baseball coach, but hav-
ing spent two years as a coach at Skyline
College, after managing the El Camino frosh-
soph squad for four years, this is Ramseys
rst year working outside of San Mateo
County, and his rst season at the varsity
helm in taking up with Riordan.
And stepping onto Bob Brian Field evoked
fond memories of the rst
time Ramsey ever met leg-
endary South City baseball
coach Bob Brian.
I came out of high
school [after my freshman
year] and I was supposed to
play in Colt League, still
with the shorter bases,
Ramsey said. And I want-
ed to play up with the 90-
foot bases but they would-
nt let me. So, me and my dad came here and
this is when Bob Brian used to be out here
and [was running his American Legion team
on the big diamond] and I went on to [the
Little League eld across the outeld] and
started hitting baseballs all into their prac-
tice. Bob Brian walked out and started saying:
Hey guys, you cant be doing this. You cant
be playing out here.And my dads like: Hey,
my son doesnt have anywhere to play. And
hed just watched me hit, and hes like: What
do you mean he doesnt have anywhere to
That was the start of Ramseys prestigious
baseball career. Hed go on to be a baseball
and football standout at Serra, where he still
owns the Padres all-time single-season hits
record of 54. He went on to win All-Northern
California honors at Skyline before graduat-
ing from Lewis-Clark State in Idaho two years
When he returned home from school
though, a coaching career was the furthest
thing from his mind. Having put himself
through school, Ramsey was more concerned
with getting to work to pay off his college
debt. Born from three generations of
Pennsylvania iron workers, the rst-gen Bay
Area native gured himself for a blue-collar
life. But thats when he got a call from then-El
Camino manager Carlos Roman.
Roman pitched Ramsey a job opportunity
to take over the Colts frosh-soph team.
Ramsey initially declined. But Roman told
him to take some time to think about it and,
two weeks later, Ramsey called Roman back
and accepted the position.
It was a great opportunity to work under
[Roman] a guy whos been there forever,
Ramsey said. He taught me a lot just being

Liebergesell said. I just worked on different
elements of my game (in the offseason).

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Barry Bonds cer-
tainly thinks hes worthy of election to the
Hall of Fame.
Without a doubt, baseballs home run
king said Monday at the San Francisco
Giants spring training camp, where he will
serve as a hitting instructor for a week.
The 49-year-old Bonds spent his last 15
big league seasons with San Francisco, n-
ishing in 2007 with 762 homers.
But his nal years were clouded by suspi-
cions of performance-
enhancing drug use, and
the seven-time NL MVP
was convicted of one
obstruction count in
April 2011 by a jury that
found an answer he gave
was criminally evasive
during 2003 testimony
before a grand jury inves-
tigating the distribution
of PEDs. And he didnt even come close to
election to the Hall in his rst two turns on
the ballot.
Advice for the writers who have not voted
for him: You guys are all adults. I have no
advice for you.
One topic he wouldnt discuss: Alex
Rodriguez, who is serving a season-long
drug suspension.
Bonds said he respects Rodriguez and will
talk to him individually, not in a press
Meeting with about three dozen media for
about 30 minutes on a patio overlooking
the left eld area at Scottsdale Stadium,
Bonds wanted to put the controversial past
behind him.
It feels really good to be back, Bonds
said. It feels good to give back to the game
that I love. Hopefully, Ill be a part of this
longer. ... Im enjoying it.
I am more nervous at this than I was
playing, because it was only my mind and
me. Hopefully I can bring good value to the
ballclub. Well see how it works out, he
added. I dont even know if Im good at it.

playing weight of 230 and considerably
more affable, Bonds wore an orange-and-

SAN DIEGO Software billionaire Larry
Ellison says in a book excerpt that hed like
to have the next Americas Cup in Hawaii,
although his sailing team CEO says ofcials
are still in the process of picking a venue.
According to an edited excerpt posted on the
San Francisco Chronicles website Monday,
Ellisons vision is for the 35th Americas Cup
match to be sailed off Honolulu following a
series of eliminations around the world.
Thats the plan, anyway, Ellison was
quoted as saying in the excerpt from the paper-
back edition of The Billionaire and the
Mechanic: How Larry Ellison and a Car
Mechanic Teamed Up to Win Sailings
Greatest Race, the Americas Cup, Twice by
Chronicle writer Julian Guthrie.
We have a lot of work to do. We have to
make deals with all the cities where we want to
hold races. Its not going to be easy to pull
this off. All that, plus we have to get an agree-
ment with the Challenger of Record, the
Hamilton Island Yacht Club of Australia.
The excerpt said Ellison detailed his vision
for the next Americas Cup in a series of exclu-
sive interviews with Guthrie over several
Ellisons syndicate, Oracle Team USA, suc-
cessfully defended the Americas Cup with one
of the greatest comebacks in sports, winning
eight straight races against Emirates Team
New Zealand on San Francisco Bay in
September to rally from an 8-1 decit.
Russell Coutts, the CEO of Oracle Team
USA, said in an email to The Associated Press
that while Hawaii is one of the venues being
considered, I can honestly say there are no
favorites at this stage.
Coutts said Oracle Team USA has sent for-
mal requests for information to several cities
and plan to narrow the eld to about three.
Id hope to have a nal venue selection at
the end of the summer, Coutts said.
San Franciscos chances of hosting the next
Americas Cup in August 2017 appear to be all
but dead. Coutts told the AP in late January
that he was unhappy that San Francisco of-
cials werent offering the same terms as last
year, including free rent for piers as well as
police, re and other services. Cup ofcials
also are opposed to paying the equivalent of
union wages for construction work.
Besides Hawaii, the only other conrmed
potential venue is San Diego, which hosted
the Americas Cup in 1988, 1992 and 1995.
Coutts skippered Team New Zealand to a 5-0
sweep of Dennis Conner off San Diego in
While not conrmed, other ports believed
in the mix are Long Beach, Calif.; Newport,
R.I., another former home of the Americas
Cup; and Chicago, which might be considered
for a warmup regatta called the Americas Cup
World Series rather than the Americas Cup
Hawaiis chances of hosting the Americas
Cup match and perhaps the nal of the chal-
lenger elimination series appear to be good
because of the relationship between Ellison
and Gov. Neil Abercrombie.
Ellison, the CEO of Oracle Corp., bought
98 percent of Lanai in 2012 and has spent mil-
lions of dollars on renovating two resorts
there. He has plans for further development on
whats also known as Pineapple Island.
Abercrombie spoke glowingly last summer
about Ellisons involvement with Lanai.
In January, Coutts told the AP that while he
hadnt had conversations with Abercrombie,
he expected that Ellison had.
Oracle Corp. ofcials kept Ellison away
from the media before and during the last
Americas Cup. Ellison spoke only at a news
conference following the clinching win.
Oracle Corp. ofcials declined an interview
request from the AP last month.

OAKLAND Stephen Curry says his
strained right quadriceps is slowly getting
better and he is planning to start for the
Golden State Warriors against the Dallas
Mavericks on Tuesday night.
Curry only participated in the walk-
through portion of Mondays practice. He
said the pain in his leg is tolerable and
believes he can continue to play through it
while the muscle heals.
Its just a matter of making sure it doesnt
get worse, Curry said.
The All-Star point guard injured his quad
during Golden States win at Boston on
Wednesday and began to
feel pain again during
Fridays victory over
Atlanta. An MRI on
Saturday revealed the
Curry shook off the
pain and played more
than expected Sunday
night, when he had 18
points and nine assists in
30 minutes in the Warriors 113-107 win
over Phoenix. That included making a 3-
pointer and handing out six assists during a
key 23-4 run in the third quarter that helped
Golden State pull away.
Curry said this is an important stretch for
the Warriors and he wants to do as much as
his body allows.
Golden State is 9-2 since the All-Star
break and a season-high 16 games over
.500. The Warriors (40-24) are two games
ahead of Dallas (38-26) for sixth place in the
jammed Western Conference standings with
18 games to play.
The Warriors also entered Monday four
games behind the Los Angeles Clippers in
the Pacific Division. The Warriors and
Clippers meet for the nal time this season
on Wednesday night in Los Angeles. Golden
State has won two of the rst three meet-
Warriors coach Mark Jackson said theres
no strict limit on Currys minutes. He said he
will communicate with Curry during games
to determine when and how much the
point guard plays.
Very pleased that he came out (against
Phoenix) where its not any worse, Jackson
said. Its something were going to have to
continue to monitor, but very pleased.
Curry, who has had two surgeries on his
right ankle, said he has not dealt with a quad
injury before. He said the pain increases
later in games when his muscle becomes
fatigued or when he sits for an extended
Theres potential when that muscle
fatigues for other things to creep up, Curry
said, and thats what were trying to avoid.
Injury wont sideline Warriors Curry against Mavs

Cain pitched ve perfect innings
for the San Francisco Giants on
Monday, but the Chicago Cubs ral-
lied for a 3-2 victory.
The right-hander, who will be the
Giants No. 2 starter behind left-
hander Madison Bumgarner during
the regular season, threw 59 pitches
and struck out seven.
Right-hander Jeff Samardzija, the
Cubs opening-day starter, also had
an effective outing. He gave up two
runs in four innings and struck out
Pablo Sandovals two-run single
in the fourth gave the Giants an
early lead, but the Cubs scored a
run in the sixth and two in the sev-
enth. The decisive run scored on
two ineld errors as part of the
same play.
Cubs: Samardzija set career marks
last year with 33 starts, 213 2-3
innings pitched and 214 strikeouts
in his second full season in the rota-
tion. He was the rst Cubs pitcher
to reach both 200 strikeouts and
200 innings since Ryan Dempster
in 2010. He was 8-13 with two
complete games, one shutout and a
4.34 ERA.
Giants: Cain is feeling much bet-
ter about himself than he last year,
when he was 8-10 in 30 starts.
Last year, I gave up a lot of two-
strike hits. I didnt nish the hitter
off for some reason, Cain said.
Today, we were able to able to n-
ish off the hitters. We threw better
pitches when we were ahead in the
count, which is always nice.
The entire starting staff appears
to be more focused this spring with
an eye on the regular season, which
begins March 31 on the road
against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
I wouldnt say we have really
talked about it much, but we know
what needs to be done, Cain said.
Giants: Left elder Michael
Morse returned to the lineup after
missing three games with a strained
calf and had a hit. ... Right elder
Hunter Pence also had a double after
dealing with a sore left elbow.
Left-hander Jonathan Sanchez,
who pitched a no-hitter for San
Francisco against the San Diego
Padres in July of 2009, earned the
save on Monday for the Cubs
against his former team, his second
save of the spring. The man who
caught that no-hitter, Eli
Whiteside, also is with the Cubs
now and started Mondays game.

Manu knew what kind of basketball savvy
Liebergesell possessed.
He has the midrange game, but hes bet-
ter when hes driving to the rim, Sam Manu
said. His game goes to another level when
he thinks rim.
Being aggressive to the rim pays divi-
dends for any team and it can lead to a steady
path to the free-throw line, where
Liebergesell made hay, going 19 for 24 in
the seminals and nals, combined.
He plays bigger than 6-foot, Manu said.
He has nice hops. He just plays bigger
than his size.
After doing work down low, which gets
the defense to sag toward the baseline to
stop Liebergesells drives, that just opens
up the perimeter for the Dons sharpshoot-
ers including Liebergesell, who can play
behind the arc as well, as his four 3-pointers
in two games shows.
Hes such more of a complete player
(now), Sam Manu said.
Liebergesells condence has grown as
his skill set has grown, which allows him
to be patient and wait for the game to come
to him. When he does heat up, things gener-
ally work out well for the Dons.

ond half between staying in the game or

Frankie Ferrari, Burlingame
boys basketball
In one of the greatest single-game per-
formances in Burlingame history, Frankie
Ferrari scored a career-high 46 points in the
Panthers 83-69 win over Leigh in the
Central Coast Section Open Division con-
solation bracket. The breakdown for
Ferraris performance: 15-of-27 shooting,
four 3-pointers, and 12 of 14 from the free-
throw line. The senior point guard followed
that up with a game-high 19 points on
March 6 in Burlingames 56-39 win over
Half Moon Bay.
Trevor Brown, Serra boys basketball
Although the Padres fell to Mitty in the
68-60 in Saturdays Open Division title
game, junior Trevor Brown turned in a big
performance in the post. The 6-4 center
knocked home 13 points and added six
boards and twice blocked the shot of 6-8
Mitty forward Ben Kone.
Sam Erisman, Menlo girls basketball
The freshman point guard lit it up Saturday,

was a one-man show in Half Moon Bays
Central Coast Section Division III semi-
nal win over Aptos on March 5. Penner
scored four goals in the 5-2 victory, includ-
ing a hat trick in the second half. He also
had an assist on the Cougars game-winning
goal in Saturdays dramatic 3-2 overtime
win in the title game against Burlingame to
clinch Half Moon Bays first ever CCS
boyssoccer championship.
Mariko Kondo, Carlmont softball
The junior right-hander earned two wins in
three days, throwing ve innings of two-hit
ball in Carlmonts 7-1 win over Milpitas on
March 6. On Saturday, she dealt in a ve-
inning complete game in the Scots 8-0 win
over Branham in the Tournament of

hits over the last three games.
Steve Pastora, CSM baseball
Freshman third-baseman had his best game
as a Bulldog, Saturday, going 4 for 4 with
three RBIs as CSM downed Gavilan, 13-5.
Pastora also had two stolen bases in the game,
giving him three in his last two games. A
standout shortstop at El Camino, Pastora has
primarily played third base in his rst season
with the Bulldogs.
Grant Goodman, University
of San Francisco baseball
The freshman right-hander earned his rst
collegiate win by dealing in USFs 9-0 win
over Tulane, Sunday at Laney College. The
Burlingame grad worked eight shutout
innings on two hits while striking out seven.
Goodman was drafted by the Giants in the
36th round last season, but opted to attend

That was a good rst place for me
and I havent looked back since.
After two seasons spent getting his
feet on the ground at El Camino,
Ramsey enlisted another former Serra
Padre as his pitching coach Al
Orozco. The tandem went on to lead
the Colts squad to a Peninsula Athletic
League frosh-soph title in 2011
before Ramsey left to take a coaching
position at Skyline and Orozco
departed to join the varsity staff at
However, the two have reunited this
season, as the rst person to whom
Ramsey extended a coaching job after
being hired at Riordan last August was
It was Orozco who initially alerted
Ramsey to the Riordan job. But the
former Serra standout who bleeds
blue and gold never imagined hed
be going along for the ride.
He was kind of tentative at rst
so I just kept getting on his butt about
it, Orozco said. And nally he
applied and it worked out for him.
Then he asked me and I was like:
Youre putting me in a pickle right
now. It was my intention for you to
get the job, not for me to leave Serra.
It was a very tough decision because I
went to school there, Im a Padre all
the way but, you know, Im always
with my friends. So, weve had a good
relationship since El Camino, and
weve always talked about dominat-
ing somewhere. And this is a good
opportunity to start from the bottom
and build something together.
Since the hire of Orozco, Ramsey
has tooled a coaching staff, through-
out the three tiers of Riordan baseball,
of which he is quite proud. Another
former Serra player, Jimmy
McCarthy, rounds out the varsity
staff. Adam Hicks is heading up the
junior-varsity squad, with Nick Paton
serving as pitching coach. Brian
Ghilarducci is managing the freshman
team with coaches Al Mattis and Jose
And while the varsity squad has a
long way to go from its 3-11 nish in
the West Catholic Athletic League last
season, the Crusaders are off to a 3-2
overall start this season after a 9-0
win at South City Monday.
I dont want to say were building
from the ground up, but we are build-
ing, Ramsey said. And were on a
constant effort to build this program
every day.

Jackets-Stars called off
when Peverley falls ill
DALLAS When the pounding of their
sticks on the boards didnt get the attention of
the ofcials, Dallas Stars players jumped off
the bench and onto the ice while the game was
going on.
Their teammate, Rich Peverley, had col-
lapsed, and Stars coach Lindy Ruff was among
those trying frantically to carry him into a
nearby tunnel.
After the game stopped and the chaotic scene
played out, Peverley was stabilized, transport-
ed to a hospital and in good condition Monday
But for several anxious minutes on the ice,
the Stars stood in stunned silence, clearly in
distress, unsure what had happened to a player
just six months removed from undergoing a
procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat.
When he dropped, it was red alert, Ruff said
after the game between Dallas and Columbus
was postponed with the Blue Jackets leading 1-
0 in the rst period. Dont worry about the
game. It was about getting the doctors. The
players dont want to play, and I dont want to
coach the team right now.
Stars forward Erik Cole tried to rush into the
tunnel just after Peverley was carried through,
only to be turned away. He then gnawed at the
thumb on one of his gloves while he waited for
word on what the players would do next.
Sergei Gonchar stared blankly near fellow
defenseman Trevor Daley, who was hunched
over on the bench, wiping his face with a
I was scared, Ruff said.
Play was halted at 6:23, and the postpone-
ment was announced about 30 minutes later.

League Baseball will take its act Down Under

All that driving, of course, means gas and I

Coming into today, Ive written at least 50
articles for the Daily Journal since Feb. 18,
including four stories for last weekends edi-
tion alone, as we previewed all eight of the
CCS championships taking place Saturday.
There were also the four CCS soccer games
March 1 at Burlingame High School.
Despite all that, you know what the hardest
thing to do is? Finding time to take a day off.
Just because the bulk of the winter season is
over, the games dont stop. The spring sea-
son has snuck up on me and is already in full
swing. Plus, there are the Northern California
tournament basketball games left to play.
No rest for the weary I suppose.
The 2013-14 basketball season came to
wrap for all but a handful of teams in the
state, which qualied for the Northern and
Southern California tournaments on the way
to the state championship game.
Six San Mateo County teams are still in
the mix for a state title appearance: on the
boys side, Menlo-Atherton (Division I),
Serra (Division II), Aragon (Division III),
Burlingame (Division III), Half Moon Bay
(Division IV) and Sacred Heart Prep (Division
IV) all secured spots in the Nor Cal tourna-
ment, as did the Menlo School girls squad
(Division IV).
Burlingame, Half Moon Bay and Serra,
which all played in the Open Division in
CCS, were moved into their division of
enrollment for the Nor Cal tournament.
Menlo-Atherton (18-9) will be the only
local team that doesnt get a home game. As
runner-up in the CCS tournament, the Bears,
as the No. 11 seed, will be on the road
Wednesday at No. 6 Rodriguez-Faireld.
Serra, the CCS runner-up, was seeded No. 4
in the Division II tournament and will have a
rst-round bye. Saturday, the Padres (21-8)
will host the winner of No. 5 Montgomery-
Santa Rosa and No. 12 Del Oro-Loomis, the
school that denied the Serra football team a
spot in the state championship game.
Division III is the most loaded bracket with
CCS teams. No. 1 Sacred Heart Cathedral and
No. 3 Riordan join No. 4 Burlingame and No.
7 Aragon, with Aragon being the only one of
the four to win a CCS championship. SHC,
Riordan and Burlingame all came up short of
the Open Division title.
Both Aragon and Burlingame will get home
games. The Dons (20-9) open against No. 10
Vanden (19-11) at 7 p.m. Wednesday, while
Burlingame (26-4) gets a rst-round bye and
will host Saturday the winner of No. 5
Faireld and No. 12 Miramonte.
CCS Division IVwinner Sacred Heart Prep
(20-7) wasnt given a whole lot of love at the
seeding meeting, getting the No. 7 seed, but
the Gators will host a rst-round game at 7
p.m. Wednesday against No. 10 Colfax (17-
Half Moon Bay (24-5), received the No. 3
seed and will host No. 14 Marshall-SF (17-

NEWYORK On the edge of the SoHo
neighborhood downtown, The Henley
Vaporium is an intimate hipster hangout
with overstuffed chairs, exposed brick,
friendly counter help but no booze.
Instead, the proprietors are peddling e-
cigarettes, along with bottles of liquid
nicotine ready to be plucked from behind a
wooden bar and turned into avorful vapor
for a lung hit with a kick that is intended to
simulate traditional smoking. A hint of
banana nut bread e-juice lingered in the air
one recent afternoon as patrons gathered
around a low table to chat and vape, or
sidled up to the inviting bar for help from a
knowledgeable vapologist.
Places like The Henley are a rarity, even
in New York. But vaping, itself, has had
astonishing growth in just eight years or
so, the number of enthusiasts around the
world has grown from a few thousand to mil-
lions. Believed by some to be the invention
of a Chinese pharmacist, vaping now has
its own YouTube gurus, trade associations,
lobbyists, online forums and vapefests for
meet-ups centered on what enthusiasts con-
sider a safer alternative to the analog,
their name for tobacco cigarettes.
The Food and Drug Administration plans
to regulate e-cigarettes but has not yet
issued proposed rules. Right now, the
agency simply states on its website that e-
cigarettes have not been fully studied so
consumers currently dont know the poten-
tial risks of e-cigarettes, including how
much nicotine or other chemicals are
inhaled, or if e-cigs may lead young people
to try ... conventional cigarettes.
Whether vaping helps regular smokers
quit or leads non-smokers to nicotine addic-
tion isnt known. Vaping may be safer
there are differing opinions but it isnt
necessarily cheap.
Will Hopkins, a 21-year-old dog walker
in black leather jacket and skull ring, visits
Henley four or ve times a week. He smoked
a pack of full-strength Marlboros a day for
eight years, until he took up vaping. The
same goes for his buddy, 20-year-old pho-
tographer Will Gallagher, who has been
vaping for two years and is fond of his brass
mod, a cylindrical device thats larger than a
cigarette and decorated with a tiger and
Chinese lettering.
I think both of us have poured in proba-
bly a little over a thousand dollars,
Gallagher said of their equipment. I like
the exclusivity of vaping. I like to keep
changing up my stuff.
The Wills are into rebuilding tanks and
rewiring coils, scouting new e-liquid avors
and adjusting their devices, which can cost
up to $300 at Henley, to allow for more
vapor, more avor. But the co-owners of
Henley count older smokers among their
clientele as well.
E-cigarettes are usually made of metal
parts combined with plastic or glass and
come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They
heat the liquid nicotine solution, creating
vapor that quickly dissipates when exhaled.
The vapor looks like tobacco smoke and
can feel like tobacco smoke when taken
into the lungs at varying strengths, from no
nicotine up to 24 milligrams or more.
In 2006, sellers of all things vape worked
primarily online or via kiosks in shopping
malls. Now there are more than 250 brands
and devices that can cost mere dollars for a
case of cigalikes, which resemble the real
thing, to a gold-and-diamond unit the size
of a fountain pen that was reportedly made
for a Russian oil tycoon and cost about
Whether vaping is cheaper than a ciga-
rette habit is up to how much is spent on
equipment and liquids and how often one
vapes. A 15-milliliter bottle of liquid at
Henley can go for $12 and may be roughly
the equivalent of four packs of cigarettes,
depending on the strength of both liquid and
leaf cigarette, among other factors like how
many puffs a smoker takes in. Rechargeable
devices require batteries another expense
and a starter kit for reuse that comes with
a device can run around $66.
By comparison, the cost of a 20-cigarette
pack of regular cigarettes can range from
about $5 to about $15, depending on state
tax and the type of location where theyre

Some cities and states have already
moved to ban public use the way they do
tobacco, and some states forbid the sale of
e-cigarettes to minors. Critics believe e-
cigs may serve as a tobacco gateway for
uninitiated young people. It may be
smoking e-cigarettes, but its still smok-
ing, said U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a
Connecticut Democrat who was one of four
senators to re off a scathing letter to NBC
and the Hollywood Foreign Press
Association after a spoof on e-cigs aired
during the Golden Globes in January.
Proponents argue that vaping isnt only
safe but is helping people quit smoking.
The Henley has a white wall of doom,
where it lists in big black letters the numer-
ous tars and chemicals found in tobacco
cigarettes, but absent in e-cig use if one is
careful about the liquids purchased.
Whats so beautiful about this product is
we can take people from a high level of
nicotine down to zero, down to nothing, so
theyre just vaping basically water and a-
voring, said Henley co-owner Talia
She scoffs at the notion that child-friend-
ly avors of e-liquids Watermelon Wave
and Frozen Lime Drop, for instance were
created to lure teens. And she rejects the
idea that e-cig companies should be banned
from advertising on TV, as tobacco compa-
nies were more than 40 years ago.
While e-liquids and vaping supplies lack
oversight and long-term research, they are
readily available to all ages online, and at
gas stations, bodegas and many drug
stores. But Henley doesnt serve those
under 18 a voluntary decision. Would it
make more sense to help people give up
nicotine an addictive substance alto-
Sure, but hows that workin for the
country so far? How are they doin with
that? Were talking in terms of serious harm
reduction, said Eisenbergs business part-
ner, Peter Denholtz. His mother died of lung
cancer two years ago; he himself smoked
cigarettes for 36 years, but has been vaping
for four years.
Some vapers, like Hopkins and
Gallagher, nd fun in tinkering with the
paraphernalia. Denholtz likens them to
older DIY enthusiasts who once whiled
away their time on Heathkits, those all-
inclusive boxes of parts that could be
turned into TV receivers, amateur radios or
stereo speakers.
Theres a whole subculture coming up.
Theyre very into all of the different
devices. They rewire and rebuild and use dif-
ferent materials for drawing up the juice.
Its unbelievable what theyve turned it
into, he said.
Denholtz and others said vaping, to
many, is merely a less harmful activity than
tobacco smoking that duplicates the most
pleasurable aspects and offers a communal
feel like hookah use and cigar bars.
Xavier Armand, 25, has been vaping for a
little more than three years and owns an
advertising and marketing rm that is help-
ing Henley put together a liquid of the
month club, along the lines of mail-order
fruit of the month.
I always kind of knew smoking was bad
for me. My mom was a smoker, but I was
never going to look into the patch or the
gum or anything, Armand said. At the end
of the day, the best part about smoking is
the smoke part. And that oral xation is
kind of a big thing as well. I consider my
agency the 2014 version of Mad Men. We
all sit around there and instead of smoking
cigarettes everyone is smoking e-cigs.
Much as movie stars made tobacco smok-
ing seem glamorous in the 1930s and 40s,
celebrities have helped fuel interest in vap-
i ng.
At the Golden Globes, Leonardo
DiCaprio was shown vaping away in the
audience. The actor told The Associated
Press recently he vapes to relieve the
stress of life.
Other celebrities have signed on as paid
e-cig endorsers, including co-host of The
View, Jenny McCarthy, and actor Stephen
Dorff, both of whom push Blu, a big player
in e-cigs that was recently bought by Big
Tobaccos Lorillard.
Dorff, who took up smoking 20 years
ago, stuck to Blus talking points in a
recent interview. He described how vaping
offers him the freedom to smoke where reg-
ular cigarettes are frowned upon.

WASHINGTON The share of
Americans without health insurance is
dropping to the lowest levels since
President Barack Obama took office, but
sign-ups under his health care law lag
among Hispanics a big pool of poten-
tial beneficiaries.
With just three weeks left to enroll on
the new insurance exchanges, the Gallup-
Healthways Well-Being Index, finds that
15.9 percent of U.S. adults are uninsured
thus far in 2014, down from 17.1 percent
for the last three months or calendar
quarter of 2013.
Released Monday, the survey based on
more than 28,000 interviews is a major
independent effort to track the health care
rollout. The drop of 1.2 percentage points
in the uninsured rate translates to about 3
million people gaining coverage.
Gallup said the proportion of Americans
who are uninsured is on track to drop to
the lowest quarterly level it measured
since 2008, before Obama took office.
Its probably a reasonable hypothesis
that the Affordable Care Act is having
something to do with this drop, said
Frank Newport, Gallups editor-in-chief.
We saw a continuation of the trend we saw
last month; it didnt bounce back up.
The survey found that almost every
major demographic group made progress
getting health insurance, although
Hispanics lagged.
With the highest uninsured rate of any
racial or ethnic group, Latinos were
expected to be major beneficiaries of the
new health care law. They are a relatively
young population and many are on the
lower rungs of the middle class, in jobs
that dont come with health insurance.
Theyve also gone big for Obama in his
two presidential campaigns.
But the administrations outreach effort
to Hispanics stumbled from the start. The
Spanish-language enrollment website,
CuidadodeSalud.gov, was delayed due to
technical problems. Its name sounds like a
clunky translation from English: Care of
The feds also translated Affordable Care
Act as Law for Care of Health at Low
Price which doesnt sound too appeal-
A spot check of the Spanish site on
Monday showed parts of it still use a mix
of Spanish and English to convey infor-
mation on such basics as insurance
copays, risking confusion.
With disappointing Latino sign-ups,
the administration is making a special
pitch as the end of open enrollment sea-
son approaches March 31.
The president was on Spanish-language
television networks last week to raise
awareness. Obama assured viewers that
signing up for health care wont trigger
the deportation of any relatives who are in
the country illegally. The laws benefits
are only for citizens and legal US resi-
Gallup found the biggest drop in the
uninsured rate was among households
making less than $36,000 a year a
decline of 2.8 percentage points.
Among blacks, the uninsured rate was
down by 2.6 percentage points. It declined
by 1 percentage point among whites. But
Latinos saw a drop of just eight-tenths of
a percentage point.
The Gallup poll is considered authorita-
tive because it combines the scope and
depth found in government surveys with
the timeliness of media sampling.
Pollsters interview 500 people a day, 350
days a year. The latest health care results
were based on more than 28,000 inter-
views, or about 28 times as many as in a
standard national poll.
The survey can be an early indicator.
Gallup saw a modest decline in the unin-
sured rate in January, and now two full
months of data point to a trend emergi ng.
This is another indication that the
(law) is achieving its key objectives,
said Aaron Albright, a spokesman for the
Medicare agency, which is also steering
the rollout.
Gallup said the drop coincides with the
start of coverage under the health care law
on Jan. 1. The major elements are now in
effect. Virtually all Americans are required
to get covered or risk fines. Insurers can
no longer turn away people with health
problems. New state-based markets are
offering taxpayer-subsidized private
insurance to middle-class households.
Medicaid rolls are also growing, with
about half the states agreeing to the pro-
gram expansion in the law. Low-income
people who qualify for Medicaid are able
to sign up year-round, so the uninsured
rate may keep going down even after the
end of open enrollment for private cover-
The administration is citing numbers
that are far higher than Gallups: about 4
million people signing up for private cov-
erage, and 9 million for Medicaid.
But those statistics also include people
who already had health insurance and
switched to coverage offered under the law.
They also include children, while Gallup
focuses on adults.

was adequately advised of his options
and his no contest plea on multiple
felonies in return for a straight 27-
year-and-four-month prison term was
freely, knowingly and intelligently
made, Judge Craig Parson said.
Rather than face a life prison sen-
tence if convicted, Mrozek pleaded no
contest in November to one count of
kidnapping, two counts of forcibly
committing a lewd act on a child under
14 and one count of attempted child
pornography possession. Sentencing
has since been delayed several times,
partially due to his later request to
withdraw the plea.
Mrozek, of San Francisco, gave the
court a written declaration that he was
not given sufcient time to reect
on the plea and discuss it with his fam-
i l y.
Although there was no margin for
change in the sentencing, the primary
victims father rst took the opportu-
nity to tell Parson his daughter and the
family still dont feel safe and fear he
will one day be released.
Try to be in my shoes and see how it
feels, said the man identied only as
Jane Does father to protect her identi-
t y.
Mrozek took my daughter away
from me, the father said, adding that
she screams in the middle of the night
and doesnt want to go to school.
Prosecutors say mid-day Sept. 21,
2012, Mrozek trespassed onto the
grounds of Parkside Elementary
School in San Mateo and grabbed the
girl on her way to the restroom. He
groped the girl and covered her mouth
with his hand before taking her off
campus to a Taylor Street residence
where she kicked and threw a rock at
him to escape back to the school,
according to San Mateo police.
Mrozek is also accused of offering
vodka to two 12-year-old boys; ver-
bally harassing two girls at Bayside
STEM Academy; and was escorted off
the Horrall Elementary School campus
by a suspicious administrator. Both
schools are in San Mateo.
After reading of Mrozeks arrest, an
official at George Washington
Elementary School in Daly City con-
tacted authorities about a March 2012
incident in which four 9-year-old girls
reported seeing a ash from under the
restroom stall as they used the facili-
ties. The girls fetched a teacher who
tried forcing the man from the stall. He
nally ran from the restroom and ed.
During Mondays sentencing hear-
ing, defense attorney Dek Ketchum
contested some of probation reports
details, such as the mouth covering
and rock throwing, which Parsons set-
tled by attaching his memo to the doc-
uments. Ketchum also had attached a
doctors evaluation on Mrozeks use of
alcohol and drugs at the time in ques-
tion and his ability for treatment.
Mrozek did not make a statement in
court but Ketchum said he is I think,
completely remorseful for what he did
although that does not negate his
He knows he can never make
amends for what he did, Ketchum said.
Mrozek has been in custody since
his arrest last year and accumulated
616 days credit against his sentence.
In addition to the prison time, Mrozek
must also register as a sex offender for
But while Mrozeks criminal case is
essentially settled, his legal battles
are not. The family of the girl are suing
Mrozek and the San Mateo-Foster City
Elementary School District for bat-
tery, sexual battery, child abuse, dan-
gerous condition on public property,
emotional distress and negligent
supervision. The district has already
denied a claim led by the family.
The suit argues the school district
knew or should have known Parkside
was an open campus with no complete
fencing and that what fences and gat-
ing it had was in need of repair. The
district should also have known the
school had no buddy system or other
safety system in place for students
going to the bathroom, the suit stated.
The school in its Feb. 10 reply to
the lawsuit denies each allegation,
states that the plaintiffs failed to exer-
cise due care and claims the school dis-
trict is immune from liability under the
California government code.
Acase conference is set in April.

Our concern is what were going to
be able to do in the future, said Mayor
Jim Ruane.
To date, considerable work has been
completed, but much of the neighbor-
hood reconstruction is ongoing and
will continue for another 10-12
months, according to the staff report.
Staff recommends that three projects
be prioritized from each the following
categories: immediate public safety
projects; neighborhood related infra-
structure projects; and other neighbor-
hood safety and maintenance projects,
according to the staff report.
Councilmembers will need to hone in
on what the most important projects
to come are. Staff is recommending
focusing in on the replacement of Fire
Station No. 52; Crestmoor Canyon re
safety improvements and trail; a trafc
signal priority control system at
Sneath Lane and San Bruno Avenue;
connections for the Skyline waterline
replacement; the Sneath Lane water-
line replacement; a Crestmoor Canyon
storm water detention basin;
Crestmoor Canyon slop stability
repairs; Plymouth Way and Sneath
Lane corridor tree replacement; and a
maintenance fund for neighborhood
landscaping and a park.
When we negotiated the $50 mil-
lion, we did not know the scope, or
extent, of what the relevant issues
would be, said City Manager Connie
Jackson. We want to get this done.
The citys trust agreement with
PG&E terminates Nov. 1, 2017, unless
the city noties the trustee that the
purposes of the trust are continuing, in
which case the trust will continue until
Nov. 1, 2020. Jackson said she cant
anticipate whether the city will ask for
additional money to go into the trust at
this point.
Fifty million dollars is a substan-
tial amount of money though, she
said. The City Council might not see
it as reasonable.
There is a chance some money can
go to the projects from the nonprot
San Bruno Community Foundation,
which manages the $68.75 million in
settlement funds negotiated with
PG&E as restitution for the explosion.
Providing funding for these projects
would be up to the foundations board
since it is a separate entity from the
Projects listed as lower priority are
replacing Water Tank No. 3; replacing
or slip-lining the existing diameter
pipeline from Pump Station 2 to Tank
7; making improvements to Pump
Station No. 1; replacing suction pip-
ing within Sneath Lane; provide stand-
by generators at Pump Stations No. 1,
3 and 7; replace portions of the
Crestmoor Canyon sewer system; a
San Bruno cable ber conversion proj-
ect; and pedestrian safety improve-
ments on Sneath Lane and San Bruno
Eight people died as a result of a
Sept. 9, 2010, PG&E pipeline explo-
sion and re in the Crestmoor neigh-
borhood. There were also 66 people
injured, traumatizing a community and
affecting the entire city.
For more information on the rebuild
effort, visit rebuildcrestmoor.org. The
City Council meets for a study session
on this item 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 11
at San Bruno Senior Center, 1555
Crystal Springs Road in San Bruno.

tate, or both, of: Lawrence D. Farnan,
aka Larry Farnan. A Petition for Probate

The petition requests the decedents will
and codicils, if any, be admitted to pro-
bate. The will and any codicils are availa-
ble of examination in the file kept by the
The petition requests authority to admin-
ister the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This au-
thority will allow the personal representa-
tive to take many actions without obtain-
ing court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the per-
sonal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an ob-
jection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: April 15, 2014 at
9:00 a.m., Dept. 28, Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo, 400
County Center, Redwood City, CA
If you object to the granting of the peti-
tion, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hear-
ing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent cred-
itor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representa-
tive, as defined in section 58(b) of the
California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal de-
livery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal au-
thority may affect your rights as a cred-
itor. You may want to consult with an at-
torney knowledgeable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE-
154) of the filing of an inventory and ap-
praisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special No-
tice form is available from the court clerk.

California law requires that contractors
taking jobs that total $500 or more (labor
or materials) be licensed by the Contrac-
tors State License Board. State law also
requires that contractors include their li-
cense number in their advertising. You
can check the status of your licensed
contractor at www.cslb.ca.gov or 800-
321-CSLB. Unlicensed contractors taking
jobs that total less than $500 must state
in their advertisements that they are not
licensed by the Contractors State Li-
cense Board.
