Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
Thursday July 17, 2014 Vol XIII, Edition 286
By Linda Deutsch
LOS ANGELES A federal judge ruled
Californias death penalty unconstitutional
Wednesday, writing that lengthy and unpre-
dictable delays have resulted in an arbitrary
and unfair capital punishment system.
The decision by U.S. District Judge
Cormac J. Carney represents a legal victory
for those who want to abolish the death
penalty in California and follows a similar
ruling that has suspended executions in the
state for eight years.
Carney, in a case brought by a death row
inmate against the warden of San Quentin
state prison, called the death penalty an
empty promise that violates the Eighth
Amendments protection against cruel and
unusual punishment.
Inordinate and unpredictable delay has
resulted in a death penalty system in which
very few of the hundreds of individuals sen-
tenced to death have been, or even will be,
executed by the state, wrote Carney, a
George W. Bush appointee.
He noted that death penalty appeals can
last decades and, as a result, most condemned
inmates are likely to die of natural causes
before their executions are carried out.
Judge: Death penalty unfair
Executions ruled unconstitutional; long appeals process expected

recount methods
County elections office
gears up for manual tally
By Michelle Durand
As the countys elections ofce gears
up for its turn manually recounting bal-
lots in the state controllers race, a
Peninsula legislator is proposing modi-
cations which he said will make the
process fair to all.
Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, D-South
San Francisco, plans to introduce a bill
addressing recount procedures when the
Legislature returns from its summer
recess in early August.
Its 14 years after Bush v. Gore and we
have this arcane system for recounts. Its
totally unworkable, Mullin said.
The details arent set in stone yet but
options include establishing a threshold
that automatically triggers a recount in
very close races Mullin said after

Scientists name Puerto
Rico water mite after JLo
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico Pop
singer Jennifer Lopez may be think-
ing life is funny after a group of sci-
entists named a water mite in her
honor after discovering a new species
near Puerto Rico.
The music of the Bronx, New York-
born entertainer who has Puerto Rican
roots was a hit with the group while
they wrote about their ndings, biol-
ogist Vladimir Pesic said in an email
The reason behind the unusual
choice of name for the new species is
... simple: J.Los songs and videos
kept the team in a continuous good
mood when writing the manuscript
and watching World Cup Soccer
2014, said Pesic, who works at the
University of Montenegro.
Pesic calls it a small token of grati-
tude for the singer of hits such as
Aint It Funny, I Luh Ya Papi and
his personal favorite, All I Have.
Hes the corresponding author of
the study that was published Tuesday
in the peer-reviewed online journal
Pesic and other scientists collected
the newly baptized Litarachna lopezae
mite from a coral reef in Mona
Passage, a treacherous body of water
that separates Puerto Rico and the
Dominican Republic. The species was
found at a depth of nearly 70 meters
(230 feet), the greatest depth that
pontarachnid mites have been found
until now, according to their study.
The mites were collected during a
series of trips from 2010 to 2012
organized by the University of Puerto
Rico and the Caribbean Coral Reef
Over the years, scientists have
named dozens of organisms after
famous people to honor them. Mick
Jagger, for example, has a type of
trilobite named after him, while one
spider was named after Bono and a
marine parasite found only in the
Caribbean sea was named after Bob
Pesic said that while he and other
scientists rooted for different teams
during the World Cup, they found
common ground with Lopez.
As European, I supported Germany,
but the whole team was united with
J.Lo songs, he wrote.

By Angela Swartz
Keeping a business aoat for more than
three decades is no easy feat, but one South
San Francisco catering and design company
has done just that.
Events, Etc..., which has been located at
Oyster Point since 1989, celebrated its
31st anniversary July 4 and this is because
of a commitment to changing with the
times, said its president and founder
Barbara (Bobbie) Fakkema. Shes worked
with big-time public gures like high-pro-
le politicians, Nobel Prize winners and
CEOs, along with big companies like
Hewlett Packard, garnering her the San
Francisco Chamber of Commerces
Woman Entrepreneur of the Year in 1990.
She has been named by the Silicon Valley
Business Journal in the Top 50 Woman
Owned Businesses.
Theres a lot of people that go into busi-
ness and dont last, she said. Its staying
exible and agile. If you arent, its not
going to work.
One example of such agility has been a
shift in the food options the last eight
years. The full-service, ne dining catering
and production company makes local
organic food for its events that include wed-
dings, parties, family gatherings, corpo-
rate events and meetings.
If someone wants Indian cuisine, we do
that, she said. He (Chef Brian White)
works on the menus with them to give them
what they want. People dont want heavy
food anymore. Alot of people right now
have special diets of no
soy, dairy, wheat. Theres
a lot menus were writing
now with these restric-
tions. You cant just put a
menu up and say this is
our menu because thats
not what people want
today; they want to lead
happy, full lives.
The boutique company
creates a new menu and
the staff of six works hands-on from the
beginning to the end of each project with
each client. Clients range from tech compa-
nies to foundations and event planning can
take anywhere from four days to six months
to a year, depending on the event.
My team is just really great, she said.
Im so proud of them. Theyre thoughtful
theyre businesslike, theyre professional,
theyre fun.
The catering industry has changed since
she started the company in 1983.
In those days, nobody did events, she
said. You had some caterers, but things
werent in demand like in the technology
world today.
In the 90s, she worked at the Bellagio in
Las Vegas; the era when this industry was
really growing, she said. Now, the best part
about the business is that its fun and
theres a lot of strategic planning involved,
she said.
Every time we go out, theres a new per-
son we have to touch, Fakkema said. I
still love it 31 years later.
In addition to loving the companys
work, Fakkema said she loves working on
the Peninsula.
Its a network of people you get to
know, said Fakkema, who lives in Menlo
Park. Its sort of tight-knit.
Although she said the company has been
really lucky there havent been any major
incidents over the years during her events,
there have been a fair share of funny sto-
ries. During one estate wedding on the
Peninsula, a local neighborhood dog
jumped into a large reflecting pool and
chased down the bride as she was coming
down the aisle. At another picnic event
with a petting zoo, animals got loose.
Often those animals just live to get out,
she said. So, I look across to the garden
and two goats are bounding across the gar-
Although Events, Etc... primarily caters
and designs for events in the Bay Area, it
does do events outside of the area. Fakkema
has planned and executed events in Atlanta,
Chicago, Florida, Boston, San Diego and

SACRAMENTO Some Southern
California water districts became so good at
saving water and building their own water
storage facilities in recent decades that resi-
dents are not feeling the effects of the worst
drought to hit the state in a generation.
Thats a problem.
Thinking plenty of water was available at
the start of summer, residents along a
coastal area doused their lawns and lled
their pools, while elsewhere in the state
farmers fallowed hundreds of thousands of
The coastal region was cited along with
the northeast corner of the state in a study
released Tuesday as areas that saw signicant
increases in water use, even as Gov. Jerry
Brown called for Californians to cut use by
20 percent.
The same day, state regulators moved to
jolt residents into saving water by authoriz-
ing nes up to $500 for wasting water on
lawns or letting hoses run while theyre
washing vehicles.
Theyre basically reaching out and grab-
bing urban California by the lapels and say-
ing you have to take this drought seriously,
Timothy Quinn, executive director of the
Association of California Water Agencies,
said Wednesday.
The urgency has grown after the report by
the State Water Resources Control Board
showed that overall statewide water con-
sumption increased by 1 percent in May
over previous years.
The increase was driven mainly by the
heavily populated Southern California
coastal communities that increased water use
by 8 percent in May and the rural northeast-
ern area of the state where use jumped 5 per-
cent. Ofcials say those areas are not seeing
the effects of the drought, partly because of
efforts made by districts to conserve and
build water storage in recent decades.
The drought doesnt seem as big of a
deal, Andrew Rossignol said Wednesday as
he washed his car in the driveway of his
Santa Ana home.
The 32-year-old musician recalls being
taught to conserve water as a youngster. And
though he still saves water, now the drought
is something he hears mentioned in radio
news reports or sees in eeting public serv-
ice messages on freeway signs.
Anaheim resident Sandra Tran is frustrated
because state and local water managers are
sending conicting messages. While the
state threatens $500-a-day nes, last week
she received a $200 citation from Orange
County for her brown lawn, instructing her
to maintain her vegetation in a healthy
green condition.
Its almost crazy because one agency is
telling you one thing and another is forcing
you to do the opposite, said Tran, 47, who
said she now spends 30 minutes a day water-
ing her lawn to avoid future citations.
Orange County code enforcement manager
Hadi Tabatabaee said that while residents are
responsible for watering their grass, they
are encouraged to switch to drought-resist-
ant landscaping a change that can cost
thousands of dollars.
Unlike the southern coastal area, commu-
nities that draw from the Sacramento River
reduced their consumption the most, by 13
percent, while those along the North Coast
used 12 percent less. San Francisco Bay Area
cities and Southern California cities that
draw from the Colorado River decreased use
by 5 percent.
Officials: Complacency drives hike in water use
Thinking plenty of water was available at the start of summer, residents along a coastal area
doused their lawns and lled their pools, while elsewhere in the state farmers fallowed
hundreds of thousands of acres.

SANTACRUZ Ahigh-priced prostitute
accused of abandoning a Google executive
after shooting him up with a fatal dose of
heroin would never have wanted him to die
because he was paying her well, a defense
attorney said Wednesday.
There was no intent to harm or injure Mr.
Hayes, said Larry Biggam, whose Santa
Cruz rm has been appointed to represent
defendant Alix Tichelman. Why would she?
He was a lucrative source of income to her.
As her parents watched quietly from the
front row of a courtroom packed with media,
Tichelman, 26, pleaded not guilty to prosti-
tution, drug use and
manslaughter in the
death of Forrest Hayes,
Her eyes were often
closed during the pro-
ceedings, but she told
Judge Timothy Volkmann
yes sir when asked if
she agreed to waive her
right to a preliminary
hearing within 10 days.
Hayes was found dead by the captain of
his 50-foot yacht Escape last November.
But the circumstances of his death were not
widely known until last week, when Santa
Cruz police arrested Tichelman after luring
her 160 miles south from Folsom with a
fake story about a client who wanted to hire
her at an upscale resort.
Police detective Laurel Shonfield said
video surveillance from the yacht shows
Tichelman injecting Hayes with heroin
and doing nothing to render aid when he
overdoses, according to court records.
Tichelman has wealthy parents and dual
citizenship in the U.S. and Canada, and was
preparing to move out of California when
she was arrested, Shoneld said.
At the hearing, Judge Volkmann denied
Tichelmans request to release her on her
own recognizance and kept her bail at $1.5
Attorney: Prostitute had no reason to kill exec
By Paul Larson

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

Joanne Wilson Dimminger, born Sept. 21, 1931, died
peacefully June 24, 2014.
A resident of Russian River, she was
born in Oakland, California, and was a
longtime resident of Redwood City,
California. Mother of Deborah (Walker),
Virginia (Willard) Warden and Eileen.
Survived by her sister Marilyn (Hegarty);
nieces Cheryl, Colleen and nephew
James; cousins Lee and Robert (Wilson),

Joanne was known for always putting others rst, espe-
cially family and friends. She loved animals, tending her
garden and was often seen feeding birds and other wildlife.
She showed incredible strength during the time she cared for
her late husband Leonard. Her strength continued on into
her last days which she spent with her daughters, family and
closest friends.
Joanne graduated from Sequoia High School and worked at
the College of Notre Dame. She was a dedicated housewife
and mother.
Mom will be missed by all, and her kindness and gen-
erosity will never be forgotten.

Law allows some candidates to hide home address
SACRAMENTO Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill that
expands privacy protections by allowing local election
ofcials to keep candidates home addresses secret under cer-
tain circumstances.
Brown announced Wednesday that he had signed AB1768
by Democratic Assemblyman Paul Fong of Cupertino. It
allows ofce-seekers who fear for their safety the ability to
withhold their address on the declaration of candidacy form
when they run for ofce.
It would apply to candidates whose voter registration
already is condential. That could include a judge or domes-
tic violence victim running for the state Legislature.
Sacramento County Registrar Jill Levine says election
ofcials will still have to verify candidates home addresses
to ensure they meet legal residency requirements.
AB1768 was sponsored by the California Association of
Clerks and Election Ofcials and takes effect Jan. 1.
Around the state
By Donna Cassata
WASHINGTON Senate Democrats suf-
fered what looked like a difcult setback on
birth control Wednesday, but they hope it
pays big political dividends in November.
Republicans blocked a bill that was
designed to override a Supreme Court ruling
and ensure access to contraception for
women who get their health insurance from
companies with religious objections. The
vote was 56-43 to move ahead on the legis-
lation dubbed the Not My Boss Business
Act by proponents four short of the 60
necessary to proceed.
But Democrats hope the issue has enough
life to energize female voters in the fall,
when Republicans are threatening to take
control of the Senate.
GOP senators said Wednesdays vote
was simply a stunt, political messaging
designed to boost vulnerable Democratic
incumbents. The GOP needs to gain six
seats to seize control.
Democrats are just trying to win an elec-
tion, Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., said
But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-
Nev., said the Republicans were the ones
out of touch with reality. He promised that
Democrats would continue to press the issue.
Women have proven crucial in electing
President Barack Obama and members of his
party. And Democrats desperately need a
strong turnout as they defend 21 Senate seats
to the GOPs 15, many in Republican-lean-
ing states where Obamas abysmal approval
ratings are a likely drag.
Last month, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4
that requiring closely held companies to pay
for various forms of womens contraception
to which they object violates the corpora-
tions religious freedom. The decision
marked the rst time the high court had
declared that businesses can hold religious
views under federal law.
Five men on the Supreme Court rolled
back the clock on women in America, said
Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.
A Senate veteran the four-term Murray
and an incumbent locked in a tight race
Colorados Mark Udall joined forces in
pushing the legislation that would have
reversed the courts decision by providing
access to contraception through insurance
plans at businesses that object on religious
Republicans asserted that the government
must accommodate the deeply held religious
beliefs of Americans, including the owners
of Hobby Lobby, the Oklahoma-based chain
of arts and craft stores that challenged the
contraceptives provision in the law.
The issue in Hobby Lobby is not whether
women can purchase birth control, its who
pays for what, said Sen. Deb Fischer, R-
Neb., in remarks on the Senate oor. Those
of us who believe that life begins at concep-
tion have moral objections to devices or
procedures that destroy fertilized embryos.
Fischer said the Green family, which owns
Hobby Lobby, has similar objections and
they dont want to use their money to vio-
late their religious beliefs. She said the
companys health coverage does pay for 16
of 20 forms of contraception, including
birth control pills.
Dems seek gains with women in birth control loss
The issue in Hobby Lobby is not whether women
can purchase birth control, its who pays for what. ...Those
of us who believe that life begins at conception have moral
objections to devices or procedures that destroy fertilized embryos.

Ramon Ray DeMarchena
Ramon Ray DeMarchena, 90, native of the Dominican Republic and
resident of San Carlos, California, passed away peacefully in the early hours
of Sunday, July 6, 2014.
Ray was predeceased by his beloved wife of over 50 years, Librada Libby
DeMarchena. Ray is survived by his children; Carlos (Joanne), Luis (Myrna)
and Ines (Robert) Smith; cherished grandchildren Leah, Carly, Anna, Allison,
Nathan, Allyssa, Gracie and Matteo; his sister, Grace and extended family. Ray
was a loving brother, husband, father and grandfather.
Ray brought his family to the United States in 1961. A mechanical draftsman
by trade, he was proud to be part of the many renovation projects he was involved with in the Bay Area,
Mexico and Peru. Over the years he and Libby enjoyed travelling with their California friends. They also
returned numerous times to the Dominican Republic to spend time with their family and friends there.
Ray loved baseball and avidly followed the players from the Dominican Republic. He enjoyed a good
boxing match and watching John Wayne movies. He was a philatelist and avid collector of die cast
miniature pencil sharpeners. While living at the Elms in San Carlos, he enjoyed daily games of Scrabble
with his friends. He will forever be remembered for his strength of character, integrity and the devotion
to his family and friends.
A funeral mass will be celebrated on Tuesday, July 22nd at 10:30am, at St Charles Catholic Church,
880 Tamarack Ave, San Carlos, 94070.

Immigrants who have been caught crossing the border illegally are housed inside the McAllen
Border Patrol Station in McAllen,Texas.
By Jim Kuhnhenn and Erica Werner
WASHINGTON Democratic opposition
increased Wednesday to legal changes that
would speed removals of young Central
American migrants, jeopardizing President
Barack Obamas call for $3.7 billion in
emergency border spending to deal with the
remarkable surge of unaccompanied youths
at the South Texas border.
Republicans insist they wont agree to the
spending without accompanying changes to
a 2008 law that gives unaccompanied
minors arriving from Central American the
right to an immigration hearing, in practice
keeping them in this country for years.
But Democratic resistance to such
changes hardened, with House Democratic
leader Nancy Pelosi changing her stance
Wednesday and announcing her opposition
to altering the law in a way that would create
shortcuts around the immigration court sys-
tem for Central American youths. Members
of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus also
took a rm stand against any changes in a
meeting with President Barack Obama.
We made an impassioned plea that the
children be protected and that we follow the
law, Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., said after-
The White House has said it wants
Congress to give the administration
expanded authority to more quickly send
back unaccompanied minors from Central
American who are crossing the border, but
ofcials have not spelled out what specic
provisions they would like.
Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, said Obama
assured the group that the due process rights
of the minors would not be compromised,
while Gutierrez said Obama does not need a
change in law to speed up the immigration
I think within existing law, he can
achieve what he needs, Gutierrez said.
Look, I didnt come to Congress to dimin-
ish and abolish protections that people
The lawmakers also spent time pressing
Obama to take executive actions to decrease
deportations of immigrants who entered the
U.S. illegally but who have been in the
country for some time. Obama has said he is
reviewing his options and promised to act
on his own after House Republican leaders
made it clear there would be no vote this
year on a comprehensive overhaul of immi-
gration law.
For the moment, the surge of minors
across the border has taken precedence over
the broader issue of affording legal status to
immigrants who are already in the country.
We can do justice to both situations,
Castro said after the meeting with Obama.
Its certainly juggling two balls at once,
but we can do that. I come away with hope
on both.
Meanwhile, top administration ofcials
including Homeland Security Secretary Jeh
Johnson briefed senators behind closed
doors Wednesday evening on the border sit-
uation and the presidents emergency spend-
ing request, but appeared to do little to win
over skeptical Republicans. That left it
unclear as to whether Congress will act to
address the crisis in the three weeks remain-
ing before lawmakers leave town for their
annual August recess.
The 2008 law in question requires unac-
companied youths under the age of 18 who
cross the border illegally to receive an
immigration hearing, a process that is
heavily backlogged and means that many
wait months to years. That provision does
not apply to border-crossers from Mexico,
however. If captured, unaccompanied
Mexican youths can be returned promptly if
a Border Patrol ofcial determines that they
dont have a claim for asylum or refugee sta-

DES MOINES, Iowa A woman from
China awaiting trial in Iowa on charges she

Mo Yun, 42, is in Des Moines free on

Mo is the wife of Shao Genhou, chairman

TOLEDO, Ohio Just days after his
infant daughters death, Nathen Steffel asked
strangers on the Internet for only one thing:
He and his wife wanted a photo of their
daughter without the breathing tubes and
tape that masked her little face.
The response has been overwhelming.
Hundreds of photos, sketches and paint-
ings have poured into the familys north-
western Ohio home and their inbox.
Im getting messages in languages from
all over the world, Steffel said Wednesday.
Its more than I can count.
His daughter, Sophia, died last Thursday at
a Cincinnati hospital from complications of
a tumor in her liver, six weeks after she was
born in Columbus. She was awaiting a trans-
plant when she died.
Her father posted a message on Reddit ask-
ing if anyone could use their photo of
Sophia in the hospital and remove the tubes
attached to her face and wrist. Since she was
in the hospital her whole life we never were
able to get a photo without all her tubes, he
It started because I just wanted one pic-
ture, said Steffel, who lives in the village
of Kalida with his wife, Emily, and their two
He initially was not sure about posting the
request online because he was worried some-
one might respond rudely. I guess the best
has outweighed the negative, he said.
So far, they have received thousands of
messages expressing support and hundreds
of photos. Someone else is sending a woven
blanket with Sophias picture.
David Valdez, who has been painting por-
traits for several years, made a digital paint-
ing of Sophia within a few hours of seeing
her fathers message.
Dads heartbreaking Internet plea spurs strangers
Nathen Steffel posted a message on Reddit asking if anyone could use their photo of Sophia
in the hospital and remove the tubes attached to her face and wrist.This is one result.
Carney also wrote that since the current
death penalty system was adopted by
California voters 35 years ago, more than
900 people have been sentenced to death,
but only 13 have been executed.
As for the random few for whom execu-
tion does become a reality, they will have
languished for so long on Death Row that
their execution will serve no retributive or
deterrent purpose and will be arbitrary, the
judge stated.
While the decisions only immediate
effect was on California, legal experts said
it could echo elsewhere as the issues it
addresses are in no way unique.
Every state with a signicant death row
has the problem of cases taking a long
time, said Gabriel J. Chin, a law professor
at the University of California, Davis.
Chin said he sees a long appeals process
ahead and expects the case will reach the
U.S. Supreme Court. The ruling could be
appealed by either the governor or the state
attorney general.
Gil Garcetti, a former Los Angeles
County district attorney who has become
an anti-death-penalty activist, called the
ruling truly historic.
It further proves that the death penalty
is broken beyond repair, he said.
Carneys ruling came in a legal petition
brought by Ernest Dewayne Jones, sen-
tenced to die in 1994 after being convicted
of murdering and raping his girlfriends
mother. Jones remains on death row with
complete uncertainty as to when, or even
whether, his execution will come, the
judge wrote.
Carney noted that arbitrary factors such
as the manner in which paperwork is han-
dled are what determine whether an indi-
vidual will actually be executed.
The ruling was not without critics.
Republican state Sen. Jim Nielsen, former
chairman of the California Board of Prison
Terms, issued a statement saying, The cur-
rent system needs improvement, but to
completely get rid of the death penalty is
unconscionable for victims and their fami-
lies and society.
Victims and their families need and
deserve justice. This ruling denies them and
society justice.
He said Californians have long supported
the death penalty, and he urged Attorney
General Kamala Harris to uphold the will
of the people and appeal.
Another federal judge put Californias
death penalty on hold in 2006 when he ruled
the states lethal injection procedures need-
ed overhaul. The judge found that the states
procedures created too much risk that an
inmate would suffer extreme pain while
being executed. At that time, lethal injec-
tions were carried out in San Quentins old
gas chamber, which the judge found too
cramped, too dark and too old for prison
staff to properly administer execution
Since then, the California Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation has built a
new execution chamber on the grounds of
San Quentin in Northern California and
made changes to its procedures.
A new federal judge has taken over the
case and has not ruled on whether those
changes are enough for the state to restart

Letters to the editor
The Fresno Bee
alifornias $300 billion public
employee pension fund reported
the upbeat news that its rate of
return exceeded 18 percent in the scal year
that ended last month.
But happy days are hardly here again for
the California Public Employees
Retirement System, or for taxpayers who
must make good on government pensions.
Theres much, much work to be done,
said Ted Eliopoulos, CalPERS interim
chief investment ofcer. Were ever vigi-
lant; we try not to get too excited in good
years or bad years about one-year results.
Eliopoulos knows better than most that
CalPERS remains in a deep hole.
Even with the 18.4 percent return,
CalPERS estimates that it is only 76 per-
cent funded, a remnant of overpromises
made by the Legislature in 1999 and the
nancial crash of 2007 and 2008. CalPERS
would need to make 18 percent on top of
18 percent for several years running, and
no one should expect that to occur.
CalPERS was also in the news last week
when its former chief executive, Fred
Buenrostro, pleaded guilty in a sordid feder-
al criminal case in which he admitted to
taking bribes of $200,000 in cash, some
of it delivered in a shoebox, no less, as
detailed by The Sacramento Bees Dale
The criminal case against Buenrostro and
the person who allegedly bribed him,
placement agent Alfred Villalobos, should-
nt obscure that the vast majority of
CalPERS workers are honorable and dedi-
cated to doing right by people who rely on
the government pensions.
Ever since the Buenrostra-Villalobos
matter became public, CalPERS has taken
steps to restore condence in its operation.
It retained the law rm of Steptoe &
Johnson to conduct an internal investiga-
tion and implemented the rms recommen-
dations, which are intended to improve
internal controls.
CalPERS made a point of publicly coop-
erating with other investigating agencies
and has increased disclosure of what had
been hard-to-get information such as
employee travel costs.
In 2009, long before the guilty plea,
Kasler wrote about how the pension fund
released piles of paperwork showing exor-
bitant fees Villalobos took in exchange for
getting CalPERS business for various
investment houses, and that Buenrostro
knew about the payments.
The fund since has instituted a disclosure
policy affecting placement agents, and
sacked a rm that had managed $1 billion
in CalPERS money, but was tainted by its
association with Villalobos.
The case against Buenrostro and
Villalobos is salacious, but its also a
sideshow. No matter how corrupt they
might have been, they would not have
affected the giant pension fund in any sig-
nicant way.
The far bigger problem is CalPERS
unfunded liability. That will take years to
In February, CalPERS estimated that pen-
sion costs could rise by as much as 5 per-
cent of payroll for most employees and 9
percent of payroll for police and reght-
ers during the next ve years.
Pensions promised to government work-
ers will have to be paid. Thats where tax-
payers come in. We ultimately will be
responsible for keeping those promises.
Water wars
John McDowell tries mightily to seem
even-handed in his column Water Wars(in
the July 12 issue of the Daily Journal). Im
afraid he betrays his prejudices by being
concerned about extremist enviros,
dened as those with concern for salmon
runs, American shing families and the
like, but not concerned for the voracious
mega farms. John is an acknowledged sup-
porter of harsher enforcement at the border.
I applaud John for his newfound concern
for the mainly undocumented workers in
the Central Valley as he cites with tears
impressive even for a crocodile the unem-
ployment rate in the valley due to those
dang enviros. Pot growers were cited as big
users of water. No one should tolerate the
Mexican maa operations, but legal grow-
ers were lumped into that group. That water
should go to the mega farms implies John.
Well, except a few exceptionally astute
Republicans pointed out to John that mari-
juana is a de facto legal crop now in this
state. Tomatoes are getting a buck or two a
pound in the store. Marijuana is getting to
$1,000 or more a pound at the wholesale
level. There are a whole bunch of
Republicans who didnt even need a calcu-
lator to gure out that complicated nan-
cial allocation versus return.

Hamas use of women and children as
human shields for military targets illus-
trates clearly that its culture values mar-
tyrdom over the protection of the inno-
cent. Regarding reasonableness and
restraint, Hamas lack of both is demon-
strated by its rocket attacks against Tel
Aviv and Jerusalem (30 percent of
Jerusalems population is Arab Muslim).
Hamas attacks against civilians in
towns and cities have no military pur-
pose. Their purpose is terror.
Palestinians celebrated the
kidnap/murder of three teens by passing
out candy. Their murderers, though iden-
tified, have not been apprehended by
Palestinian police. The murderers of the
Arab teen were quickly captured. There
were no candies passed around in Israel.

There are several reasons why there is
such a disparity in the number of casual-
ties between the people of Gaza and
Israel, but the body count doesnt tell the
story. After all, compare civilian casual-
ties of England and America and Germany
and Japan.
One reason for the difference is that
Israel has invested in civil defense,
including warning systems, shelters and
an effective missile defense system. This
was done because of the continuous
attacks she has suffered from her incep-
tion and before. In Gaza, Hamas has
assembled thousands of rockets and mis-
siles and hides many of them in under-
ground tunnels. They shelter rockets, not
people. They also use civilian areas to
fire rockets and hide in homes and
mosques. Moreover, casualties are a prop-
aganda weapon as the casualties mount
the world demands that Israel stop defend-
ing herself. As far as disproportionate
force, dont look at the results, look at
the effort. Nearly 1,200 attacks from
Gaza, each one aimed at civilians. We
shouldnt criticize Israel for investing in
defensive measures. That is what every
government should do.

When did Archie move beyond vanilla

Granted, the

further away from

probably do have
more of an
appetite for story
lines rather than
punch lines. But were not talking about
Maus, Art Spiegelmans Pulitzer Prize-win-
ning graphic novel about the Holocaust.
Were talking about Archie, a squeaky-clean
kid from wholesome Riverdale.
If Archie can get real, just think of how
other iconic comic strip characters would
fare with a modern makeover. Doonesbury
wouldnt work; that strip already had a lot
going on without any added creative license.

Big movers
By Alex Veiga
Major stock indexes rebounded
Wednesday, nishing higher for the
third time in four days and lifting the
Dow Jones industrial average to its
second record close this month.
Investors had lots of market-moving
news to consider, including encourag-
ing corporate earnings from Intel, a
higher prot forecast from hospital
operator HCAHoldings and a pickup in
U.S. homebuilders condence about
the housing market.
Trading action appeared to get the
biggest jolt from the latest batch of
corporate deal news.
Investors drove up shares in Time
Warner 17 percent on news that
Twenty-First Century Fox made a
takeover bid for the media giant. Other
deals involving Apple and IBM as well
as slot machine maker International
Game Technology also helped lift the
Its a continuation of what weve
really been seeing this year, and its
almost a record amount of (mergers and
acquisitions) going on, said David
Chalupnik, head of equities at Nuveen
Asset Management.
Momentum from Intels strong sec-
ond-quarter earnings late Tuesday and
news that Apple and IBM are teaming
up to sell more iPhones and iPads to
corporate customers helped lift major
stock indexes in premarket trading.
The disclosure by Rupert Murdochs
Twenty-First Century Fox that it had
made a bid for Time Warner last month
added to the modest rally.
Investors also got a dose of good
news about housing. A key index of
U.S. homebuilders condence in the
housing market surged to its highest
level since January and indicated that
builders are more optimistic about
selling homes in the second half of the
The major stock indexes opened
slightly higher, led by the tech-heavy
Nasdaq, and remained in positive terri-
tory the rest of the day.
All told, the Standard & Poors 500
index gained 8.29 points, or 0.4 per-
cent, to 1,981.57. The index remains
near its most recent all-time high of
1,985.44 set July 3.
The Dow added 77.52 points, or 0.5
percent, to 17,138.20. Thats up 0.4
percent from its previous record high
of 17,068.65 set July 3.
The Nasdaq composite rose 9.58
points, or 0.2 percent, to 4,425.97.
The three stock indexes are all up for
the year.
Bond prices were little changed. The
yield on the 10-year Treasury note
dipped to 2.53 percent from 2.55 per-
cent late Tuesday.
Cheap nancing and a tough global
economy have made acquisitions an
attractive option for companies to
expand their business.

surged 80 percent to $1.02 trillion so

appeared to agree, sending Time
Warners stock up $12.12 to $83.13
on Wednesday. Twenty-First Century

Meanwhile, International Game
Technology vaulted 9.2 percent on
news the slot machine maker has
agreed to be sold to Italian lottery
operator Gtech for $4.7 billion in cash

Historically a lot of M&A doesnt
work out, so it will be interesting to
see how a lot of these deals play out

Stocks close higher; Time Warner soars
By Ryan Nakashima
LOS ANGELES Even though Rupert
Murdochs $76 billion bid for rival media
giant Time Warner Inc. has been rejected,
that doesnt mean how you watch TV shows
and movies will stop changing any time
The cash-and-stock bid by Murdochs
Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. was partly
meant to counter consolidation among TV
distributors like Comcast-Time Warner
Cable and AT&T-DirecTV.
The more must-have channels like HBO
and Fox News Channel are assembled under
one company, the stronger that companys
bargaining position in demanding licens-
ing fees from the TV distributors, no matter
how big they get.
Time Warner also owns TVchannels CNN,
TNT and TBS, along with the Warner Bros.
movie studio, which includes Batman,
Superman and Harry Potter. Fox owns the
20th Century Fox movie
studio, the Fox broadcast
network and such TV
channels as Fox News
and FX.
Much of the value is in
the television channels
because of the ever-
increasing fees they are
able to command from
cable and satellite TV
providers. Disputes over
such fees have led to temporary blackouts of
popular channels from various systems.
The Comcast-Time Warner Cable and
AT&T-DirecTV deals are both undergoing
regulatory review. In disclosing the rejected
bid Wednesday, Time Warner and Fox indi-
cated that their talks were over, but analysts
dont expect Murdoch to give up. The offer
was worth about $86.30 a share based on
Tuesdays closing price.
If talks resume and a takeover succeeds,
analysts see some possible consumer bene-
Fox bid for Time Warner sparks content merger race
A combination could accelerate the
industrys TV Everywhere push, in
which traditional media companies
make their channels available over the
Internet as part of a TV subscription. Its
the pay TV industrys answer to the rise
of streaming services such as Netix,
YouTube and Amazon.
The hang-up in making those channels
available online has partly been
licensing deals with content producers.
A unied company with an even larger
suite of channels from TBS to FX could
makesuchdeals standardindustrywide.
Apps modeled after Time Warners
successful HBOGocouldalsobeapplied
to more networks.
A player with more scale would be able
to work on that and make digital
content offering more user-friendly to
the consumer, Nomura analyst
Anthony DiClemente said.
With a North American box ofce
market share of around 30 percent, a
combined Warner Bros.-20th Century
Fox movie studio could push movie
theater companies to shorten the time
between when a movie hits theaters
and when its available for sale or rental
through digital outlets like iTunes.
A shortened window helps studios
they wouldnt have to advertise each
time a movie becomes available on a
different platform. Theater companies
have pushed back, as earlier digital
release times could cut into ticket sales.
They would have a lot of ability to
experiment with new release patterns
for movies,FBR Capital Markets analyst
Barton Crockett said.
While theres no guarantee that the cost
of sports rights would come down, a
merger would reduce the number of
bidders for such rights and allow a
combined company to spread acquired
content over more channels. For
example, after Comcast bought
NBCUniversal, it rebranded Comcasts
Versus channel as NBC Sports Network
and used it to carry gure skating and
hockey during the Winter Olympics in
Fox could bolster its sports channel, Fox
Sports One, by combining efforts with
Time Warners TNT to recapture the
rights to broadcast NBA basketball
games when they expire in 2016. TNT
currently shares those rights with The
Walt Disney Co.s ESPN and ABC.
TNT also has rights to college
basketball and professional golf,
adding to Foxs Major League Baseball
and NASCAR racing.
A combined portfolio of sports could
better challenge ESPN, DiClemente
wrote in a research note.
To blunt the rise of streaming services
like Netix and Amazon Instant Video,
a combined company would have
more power to withhold content or
demand steeper licensing fees. That,
in turn, could force streaming
services to raise subscription prices.
And further consolidation puts more
media voices under the control of
one entity. Thats why Fox, which
operates the lucrative Fox News
Channel, is willing to sell Time
Warners CNN, according to one
person familiar with the matter. That
person spoke on condition of
anonymity because that deal point
wasnt officially made public.
Its unclear how regulators would view
so many pay TV channels being
owned by the same company.
What would a merger mean?
Strong PayPal growth
boosts eBays 2Q profit
NEW YORK EBay said Wednesday
that its second-quarter net income rose 6
percent, as strong growth from its PayPal
payments business offset lower-than-
expected revenue that was hampered by a
global password reset after a cyberattack.
Investors had been expecting muted
results and shares rose slightly in after-
market trading, even though the company
lowered its sales guidance for the year.
PayPal, which eBay bought for $1.3
billion in late 2002, gained 4 million
new active registered accounts to end the
quarter up 15 percent to 152 million.
The business is growing faster than the
companys e-commerce site: Payments
revenue rose 20 percent to $1.95 billion,
about 45 percent of total revenue.
Meanwhile, its core marketplaces revenue
rose 9 percent to $2.17 billion.
EBay shares have fallen about 8 percent
since the beginning of the year, while the
Standard & Poors 500 index has risen
7. 2 percent. The stock has dropped
$6.68, or 12 percent, in the last 12
mont hs.
Business brief
By Robert Jablon
LOS ANGELES California home sales
slumped last month from a year earlier as
buyers faced tight supply and prices con-
tinued to rise, a real estate research firm
said Wednesday.
There were 39,254 homes and condo-
miniums sold in June, DataQuick said.
That was up 4 percent from May a typi-
cal seasonal rise but it was nearly 20
percent below the average for all Junes
since 1988.
In fact, DataQuick said sales havent
topped the average for any particular
month in more than eight years.
The median price paid for a home in June
was $393,000 up 1.8 percent from May
and 11.6 percent from June 2013.
It was the highest median price for any
month since December 2007 although well
below the peak of $484,000 set in spring
2007, DataQuick said.
By comparison, the median price dipped
to $221,000 in April 2009 after the hous-
ing crash.
Prices have increased a lot over the
past couple of years as the economy
has improved . . . and yes, thats pri ci ng
peopl e out because t hei r i ncomes
havent kept pace, DataQuick analyst
Andrew LePage said.
The number of homes for sale is low
compared with previous years, despite
being greater than a year ago, LePage said.
New home construction has flagged and
fewer lower-priced, distressed properties
are on the market, he said.
Meanwhile, prices are rising and would-
be buyers who couldnt manage a regular
loan have less chance of obtaining large,
riskier loans.
Lending guidelines are still fairly con-
servative, LePage said. Most people
still cant stretch (their financing) nearly
as much as they could have during the last
housing boom.

The summer sports landscape is full of
baseball and softball games and tournaments,
early-season preparation for the upcoming
football and volleyball seasons, as well as
the peak of the summer travel basketball sea-
The two biggest showcase events for the
club basketball scene take place in Las Vegas
and Southern California over the next few
weeks and there will certainly be a lot of hype
and exposure for a tremendous amount of tal-
ented basketball players.
But if youre looking for a sneak preview of
the upcoming high school boys basketball
season here on the Peninsula, you dont have
to go any further than Skyline College, as it
hosts its 34th annual Skyline College High
School Basketball Tournament, which began
last weekend with pool play. Quarternal and
seminals games are scheduled Saturday and
Sunday, with the championship game slated
for Monday evening at 6.
The tournament can be a great barometer for
a teams success or failure for the
upcoming season. It allows coaching staffs
an early look at what the makeup of their team
could be come Nov. 1 the rst day of fall
basketball practice for the 2014-15 season.
The Skyline tournament is the premiere
(high school) summer tournament in the Bay

during his coaching career at Half Moon Bay
and Terra Nova. It gives the players and
coaches a chance to know what the winner

performance in the Skyline tournament is a
preview of whats in store for the upcoming

Millbrae Joe DiMaggios season nale was
anything but a regular day at the yard for
shortstop Sereno Esponilla.
A2013 graduate of Mills, Esponilla recent-
ly completed his freshman year at St. Marys
College. Things didnt work out for Esponilla
with the Gaelsbaseball team after a three-and-
a-half week stint as a walk-on, but they told
him to come back in 2015, he said.
So, as Millbrae wrapped up a lackluster sum-
mer season with a 12-3 loss to the San
Francisco Cardinals Wednesday at San Bruno
Park , Esponilla was left to wonder if it will be
the nal ofcial game of his baseball career.
Ive been working really hard to give
myself a chance to make the (St. Marys)
team, Esponilla said. Im going to give
everything I have to keep playing.
With all certainty though, Wednesday
marked the nal Joe DiMaggio game of the
19-year-olds career. And while Millbrae
coughed up a 3-0 lead with a collapse in the
nal two innings, it was still another impres-
sive individual showing for Esponilla.
As the teams shortstop and cleanup hitter,
Esponilla was involved in all of Millbrae s
runs, going 2 for 3 with two RBIs and a run
scored; while in the eld, he made three ne
plays look a lot easier than they were with his
smooth range, soft hands and dynamic arm.
I guess youd say hes our guy this year,
Millbrae manager Bryan Hidalgo said. Every
time he came up with runners in scoring posi-
tion, hed come through.
Clutch hitting has been Esponillas calling
card through his three years with Millbrae . In
two previous seasons, he helped carry the
team deep into the postseason by feasting
with ducks on the pond. His three varsity sea-
sons at Mills were no different. The right-
handed hitter tabbed a .337 career batting
average while pacing the team in RBIs in his
sophomore and senior seasons. He also won
the Vikingsteam triple crown as a senior, hit-
ting .444 with one home run and 18 RBIs.
I like playing in situations where theres a
lot of pressure, Esponilla said. Thats one of
Esponilla determined to continue baseball career

Not to be overlooked at golfs oldest
championship, however, is a new genera-
tion of stars.
Rickie Fowler and Harris English will be
playing ahead of him. Two groups behind
will be Jordan Spieth and Hideki
Matsuyama. They are among 25 players
who share a bond that speaks to the state of
golf. Woods has never won a major during
their professional careers.
Yes, they saw his dominance on TV. They
just never experienced it.
They were not around for the decade when
Woods won majors with regularity, some-
times by a record score, sometimes by a
record margin. They missed the days that
were so Tiger-centric a player couldnt get
through an interview without being asked
something about Woods.
Tiger ruined a lot of guys lives, Charles
Howell III, a longtime friend of Woods who
lived through those times, said earlier in the
year. He caused a lot of people some sleep-
less Sunday nights. But he also motivated
an entire generation behind him.
Howells point was that while the next
generation might have been in awe of
Woods, being outside the arena allowed
them to study him without getting scarred.
They learned from the way he worked. They
were more prepared than the generation
before them.
The talk at this British Open is that it is
more open than ever.
But then, thats been the case since Woods
won his last major six years ago. Since that
2008 U.S. Open, 19 players have won
majors, and no one has won more than two.
In the 24 majors leading up to his last
major, Woods won six, Phil Mickelson won
three and no one else won more than one.
Looking at the different amount of win-
ners in the last ve years at the major cham-
pionships, were seeing so many players
win, Henrik Stenson said Wednesday. Its
so competitive. At some point there might
have been 20 guys battling out for it. And
now it feels like anyone in the eld can win
if they have a great week. So its denitely
Stenson, No. 2 in the world and among
the favorites this week, will be playing
alongside Woods for the opening two days.
Hes just one of the guys I need to beat if
I want to do well this week, Stenson said.
But its a good start if you know you can
beat him.
Woods is playing his rst major of the
year because of March 31 back surgery.
Returning to Royal Liverpool was always
the target he won his third claret jug on
these links in 2006 when it was brown and
fast, not green and slower as it is this year.
Woods came back sooner than he expected,
missing the cut at Congressional three
weeks ago in what had the feeling of a 36-
hole rehab assignment.
He feels healthy. He feels strong. And he
still commands a presence.
That much was clear when Woods played
only two holes Wednesday as spectators
scrambled for a view. He brings energy and
excitement to a golf tournament.
New generation emerging at golfs oldest major
Ricky Fowler is among an emerging generation of pro golfers who grew up idolizing Tiger
Woods and wanting to emulate his dominance.

OYONNAX, France French rider Tony
Gallopin led a late breakaway in a show of
opportunism and savvy racing to win
Wednesdays 11th stage of the Tour de France
as Italys Vincenzo Nibali retained the over-
all lead.
The peloton returned to action after the
races rst rest day with the 187.5-kilometer
(116.3-mile) ride from Besancon to
Oyonnax, not far from the Swiss border. The
stage featured four small- to medium-sized
hills near the end.
In the stages mini-drama, American
Andrew Talansky, struggling through pain
from crashes earlier in the race, dropped out
of the pack and rode solo much of the day. In
a show of grit, he nished some 32 minutes
back enough to qualify to ride another day
under race rules.
Gallopin, who wore the yellow jersey for a
day before Nibali recaptured it, rst tried to
break away with about 13 1/2 kilometers
(8.4 miles) left but got reeled in. Then, in a
late urry, with less than 3 kilometers to go,
the Lotto-Belisol rider tried again. This
time, it worked.
He chiseled out a lead of several seconds
and, desperately pedaling, held off a surging
pack in the nal several hundred meters.
Gallopin won by several bike lengths,
just enough for him to have time to lift his
arms in celebration, panting.
Incredible, said Gallopin of his rst Tour
stage win. I came to train for the Tour de
France here ... that really served me today.
Its really a victory that feels good.
The top standings didnt change, because
Nibali nished in the pack with the same
time as Gallopin. Astana team leader Nibali
has a lead of 2 minutes, 23 seconds over
Australias Richie Porte, in second.
Alejandro Valverde of Spain was third,
another 24 seconds back. Gallopin was in
fth, 3:12 behind Nibali.
With such a margin and the strong form he
has shown so far, Nibali is looking well-
positioned for possible victory when the
race ends in Paris on July 27. But tough days
lie ahead: in the Alps later this week, and the
Pyrenees mountains in Week Three.
Talansky, in pain after two crashes twice
in recent days, dropped back from the pelo-
ton more than halfway through the stage. At
one point, he stopped and sat down on a
roadside guard rail. French TV rst counted
him out, as did some observers on Twitter.
But in a show of heart, and with encour-
agement from his team sports director
Robert Hunter, Talansky got back on his
bike, wiped his eyes and continued. Now he
was racing against the clock. Under race
rules, which require riders to nish within a
certain time of the stage winner, he had to
nish within 37 minutes of Gallopin.
Talansky did that with about ve minutes
to spare, said Jean-Francois Pescheux, a top
race ofcial.
The Garmin-Sharp team leader, who won
the Criterium du Dauphine stage race last
month, was seen as a potential podium con-
tender before this Tour. But Talansky fell
largely out of contention for that prospect
in Stage 10, when he had the second of two
crashes in this race.
As Wednesdays stage began, he was near-
ly 15 minutes back of Nibali in 26th place.
Riders head off on another day featuring
four small- to mid-sized climbs on Thursday,
with a 185.5-kilometer (115-mile) 12th
stage from Bourg-en-Bresse to Saint-

STORRS, Conn. UConns athletic director says he opposes
the idea of unions for college athletes, yet sees the need to pro-
vide students on athletic scholarships with additional money.
Warde Manuel, in a wide-ranging interview with The
Associated Press on Tuesday, said he supports recent changes that
will allow the school to provide unlimited food and snacks to
The NCAA adopted those changes this spring, days after
UConn guard Shabazz Napier told reporters at the Final Four that
he sometimes went to bed hungry because of rules that allowed
the school to pay for only three meals a day.
Manuel said that in addition to those changes he also believes
the NCAA should look toward allowing stipends or laundry
money for other out-of-pocket expenses above tuition, room
and board.
But to me we have to look at it holistically and not just for
those in the revenue producing sports, just because we sell tick-
ets to football and mens and womens basketball and hockey,
he said. I think there needs to be a balance and student-athletes
need to have a voice in the process.
Manuels comments come as the NCAAawaits a decision in a
lawsuit that that could change the way college sports are regulat-
ed. Former UCLAbasketball player Ed OBannon and 19 other
plaintiffs are asking a U.S. District Court judge for an injunction
that would allow athletes to sell the rights to their own images in
television broadcasts and rebroadcasts.
Manuel declined to comment on whether college athletes
should be allowed to prot from sales of video games or jerseys
bearing their number. But, he said he does not think that schools
should own the rights to an athletes likeness in perpetuity.
He noted that some schools have stopped selling jerseys with
numbers that reect those of popular players, opting instead to
use the last two digits of the year or some other innocuous num-
Manuel, who played football at Michigan, said he also doesnt
want to see players treated as if they were employees of the ath-
letic department.
UConns AD sees need
for stipends for athletes
NEWYORK Clint Dempsey and DeAndre Yedlin of the
Seattle Sounders are among a group of eight players from
the U.S. World Cup team voted to the MLS All-Star game.
On Wednesday night, Major League Soccer announced
the result of the fan vote. The game against Bayern
Munich is scheduled for Aug. 6 in Portland, Oregon.
Sporting Kansas Citys Matt Besler and Graham Zusi,
Real Salt Lakes Kyle Beckerman and Nick Rimando, Omar
Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Galaxy and Toronto FCs
Michael Bradley also represented the U.S. in Brazil and
were voted to the MLS team.
The U.S. lost 2-1 to Belgium in the World Cups round of
16 on July 1.
Galaxy forward Landon Donovan, who played for the
United States in the previous three World Cups but was cut
from this years team, also made it. Forwards Thierry
Henry of the New York Red Bulls and Obafemi Martins of
the Seattle Sounders round out the Fan XI.
The winners of the fan vote are not necessarily the
starters for the game.
Clint Dempsey, eight other national
team players earn MLS All-Star nods
the situations I like hitting in the most, is with runners on
Wednesday, Esponilla promptly gave Millbrae a lead in
just such a scenario. In the rst inning, Drew Casella and
Sean McHugh each drew walks then advanced on a wild pitch.
And with two runners in scoring position, Esponilla roped
an inside fastball down the left-eld line for a pair of RBIs.
Then his gutsy base-running turned a would-be double into a
triple with a bang-bang, cloud-of-dust play at third. The risk
paid off when Nick Healey grounded out to bring Esponilla
home, giving Millbrae a 3-0 lead.
In support of Millbrae starting pitcher Jordan Ganim,
Esponilla carried the offensive momentum over to defense by
making a sweet play to start the second inning. Cardinals
cleanup hitter Nick Rolph hit a high two-hopper with steam
into the hole between short and third, which Esponilla cor-
ralled with a smooth backhand and red across the diamond
for the rst out of the frame.
In the third, Esponilla made a rangy play going over the
middle on a sharp grounder by Leffert Lefferts. Esponillas
throw was a bit off the mark on that play, but his rst base-
man bailed him out by wrestling the ball and applying the
tag as it sliced into the path of the base runner. In the fourth,
when Esponilla made a similar play ranging over the middle
to take another hit away from Rolph, the throw was right on
Ganim took advantage of his shortstops stellar defense by
holding the Cardinals scoreless on three hits through the rst
ve innings. But in the sixth inning, it all came crashing
down as the Cardinals sent 12 batters to the plate amid an
eight-run inning.
He was throwing well for ve shutout innings, Hidalgo
said. It was his game, so I just kept him out there. I guess
he just ran out of gas.
Millbrae s third baseman committed two errors on consec-
utive plays early in the inning to open the oodgates. Then,
facing Millbrae s reliever McHugh, Marcus Min as the
11th batter of the inning punctuated the rally with a bases-
loaded double to clear the bags. In the seventh, the Cardinals
scored four more times, including two hit batsmen with the
bases loaded.
The dismal loss ends a topsy-turvy season for Millbrae ,
nishing in last place in the North Peninsula League with a
record of 4-16.
We could have done better, Esponilla said. We had our
ups-and-downs. It denitely didnt go the way we planned.
But, what are you going to do?
For the second time in the past three seasons, Millbrae was
a team without a home. According to Hidalgo , the teams
usual home eld at Mills was rented to an adult team through-
out the summer and was unavailable.
So, Millbrae essentially spent the summer barnstorming,
often playing as the technical home team at opponents
facilities. Wednesday at Lara Field San Bruno Joe
DiMaggios home yard the grandstands were padlocked
shut and the automated scoreboard was not in use. Instead, the
home plate umpire kept the score by using a manual little
league ip board attached to the home-plate backstop.
Hidalgo dismissed the idea the lack of home-eld was a
detriment to the team.
Its summer ball, Hidalgo said. Guys just come out and
have fun. Theyre not focusing on home-eld advantage.
They just come out and play.
The Cardinals (11-13) qualied for the postseason by n-
ishing in third place of the San Francisco League. The
Cardinals, made up entirely of Lowell players, are managed
by John Donohue. The longtime Lowell manager has
announced he will retire after the 2015 season upon comple-
tion of his 33rd year at the helm of the San Francisco
schools team. Former South City manager Daryl Semien, a
current coach for Lowell and the Cardinals, has been
announced as Donohues successor starting in the 2016 sea-

a lot of depth to withstand whatever could
potentially happen coming up in the second
Several offseasons ago, Beane committed
to building from the bottom of the minor
league system on up to make sure his club
had the depth to withstand injuries, and that
philosophy is working even in a talent-
ed division that includes Robinson Cano in
Seattle and power hitters Josh Hamilton and
Albert Pujols of the Angels.
Oakland had its most wins ever before the
All-Star break, and its six All-Stars were
most for the As since 1975.
Theyve done a great job of stacking this
team and this organization with guys who
can get the job done at this level, Oakland
right elder Josh Reddick said. With the
last two and now a third year, were proving
that were here to be a true competitor and
were showing that with the best record in
baseball right now. It gives us condence to
know that he (Beane) is wanting to go for
the whole thing just as much as we are.
In each of the past two Octobers, the
Tigers have eliminated Oakland in division
series that went the ve-game maximum.
The Giants, winners of the 2010 and 12
World Series, missed the playoffs last year
and hope they can get back on a roll like the
team across the bay. At 52-43, they are one
game behind the NL West-leading Los
Angeles Dodgers, and Tim Lincecum has
won four straight starts for the rst time
since April 2010.
No question, the Giants have really
established something here for a long peri-
od of time, Melvin said. Its difcult to
not only win a World Series, win two out of
four, and be in the position theyre in right
now. It could be really exciting for the Bay
The Giants are counting on some rein-
forcements in the second half. Center elder
Angel Pagan and second baseman Marco
Scutaro come back from injuries to give San
Francisco the roster it envisioned.
It led the NL West by 9 1/2 games when it
was 42-21 on June 8, but has struggled since
then. The Giants were outscored 19-7 in los-
ing three out of four in their recent inter-
league series with the As .
Their boats just kind of been going in a
steady direction and were just trying to get
ours on that path as well, said Lincecum,
who pitched his second no-hitter in 11
months against San Diego on June 25. You
get into those ruts and you try to look for
how to get out of them and I think its just
doing what you did beforehand, not neces-
sarily putting so much emphasis on getting
out of it.
Despite injuries, small crowds and even
sewage problems in their home stadium, the
As have found a way to win.
Weve had contributions everywhere,
assistant general manager David Forst said.
Its certainly been not unlike any other
year where weve had to tinker and turn over
the roster as we go. ... The players are
unfazed by any changes we make. They just
go out and play for three hours a day, and
theyve played great.
Its really exciting for all
of the fans from both sides of
the bay.Theyve had the
opportunity over the years to
have some really fun teams to
watch,World Series-caliber
teams every year. New York
cant say that, L.A. cant
really say that.

The Skyline tournament comes at the per-
fect time, just before the big summer show-
case events, which should enable many teams
to eld close to full squad.
Everybody loves that tournament and if
theyre in town and not hurt, theyre going to
play, Milch said.
Both Forslund and Milch said its become
harder and harder to compete for a kids time
during the summer. Whether its club or work
commitments, there are all kinds of distrac-
tions for athletes during the summer.
Milch said he doesnt have to worry too
much about his players missing time with the
team because of the summer travel-ball scene.
For other teams, that would be more preva-
lent but, with our situation, we havent had
that battle.
That doesnt mean Milch doesnt have to
corral players.
I think it gets increasingly difcult every
year. Theres more options for the kids,
whether its their specialty sport or summer
vacations or work, Milch said. The kids
that want to play and love the game are there
as much as their schedule will allow them. Its
a matter of balancing all the different things
kids do nowadays.
Forslund, who will be going to Las Vegas
with a travel team he coaches, doesnt neces-
sarily afford his high school players the same
We would rather they play with [the Half
Moon Bay team], Forslund said. [If] they go
someplace new, I tell them to bring me back
two new things that theyve learned, that they
can use in their game.
Im still waiting (for that to happen).
Forslund believes the importance of begin-
ning to build chemistry and camaraderie
among the team is one of the most benecial
aspects of the Skyline tournament.
The more theyre playing together, the
better, Forslund said.
Its also a chance for coaches to start put-
ting the pieces of the puzzle together when it
comes to molding a team. The Skyline tour-
nament affords coaches the opportunity to
assess the progress of new players perhaps
moving up from the frosh-soph team, or
returning varsity players looking to expand
their roles for the upcoming season.
Getting them on the court, getting an idea
of positions, see if they can adjust to the var-
sity level (can be accomplished), Milch said.
You can also nd those diamonds in the
rough. You can nd players with more versa-
tility than you thought and can see them in
different positions.
In the summer, you have more exibility
(to experiment). Its not all about winning
and losing. Guys are about learning the sys-
tem. There are numerous benets (to the
Skyline tournament).

SAN JOSE The San Jose
Sharks have re-signed defensemen
Jason Demers and Taylor Doherty.
Demers set career highs with ve
goals, 29 assists and 34 points
last season. He had one assist
while playing in all seven games
of San Joses rst-round loss to
the Los Angeles Kings.
Doherty had four goals and 11
assists with the AHLs Worcester
Sharks last season. The 23-year-
old is expected to push for a spot
on San Joses roster this fall.

how prevalent athletic injuries are.
Adding your injury history to the site is simple:
go to www.bounceback.info and click the registra-
tion button. It doesnt ask for any private info no
credit card or Social Security numbers, doctors
names or anything like that.
Once your online ID is created, you will presented
a series of questions pertaining to your injuries. It
takes about ve minutes to ll out and at the end you
can see what percentage of respondents has a similar
injury to their knee, for instance, and identify what
sport the injury occurred.
Bounceback also has a section about the sports
equipment a person was using and what brand of ath-
letic shoe or brand of equipment was being used
when the injury occurred.
For Brown, who is now focused and playing bas-
ketball, he believes a literal life of playing sports
had a lot to do with his injury two years ago.
Most of [the injury] was overuse, Brown said.
But there were denitely some times where I twisted
the wrong way and denitely felt a lot of pain.
Now, Brown and his partners want others to share
their pain.

and scored just over two points per contest.
Last year, the 5-9 former Menlo-Atherton player
pushed her scoring average to nearly 17 points and
saw her workload increase to an average of 37 min-
utes per game, earning all-Coast Conference honors
in the process.
She was the most improved player Ive ever had,
said Mission coach Corey Cafferata.
Roche parlayed her newfound game into a full
scholarship to Southern University, a NAIAschool
in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Cafferata said its hard to pinpoint an exact posi-
tion for Roche: She played all ve positions for
me, Cafferata said, but envisions her as a shooting
But she can play the 1 and the 3 (point guard and
wing), Cafferata said.
Roche joins former Mission teammate Candace
Stephens from the 2013-14 season to earn a scholar-
ship to a four-year school two of the ve San
Mateo County players who have earned scholarships
during Cafferatas ve-year tenure running the pro-
Stephens, who had a solid prep career at San
Mateo High, will be playing next season at
Philander Smith College in Little Rock, Arkansas.
In an intriguing twist, Southern and Philander
Smith play in the same conference, so there is a
chance the two Mission College transfer could face
each other the court as opponents, after the two pre-
vious years as teammates.
I usually get one or two San Mateo County play-
ers (on my team a year), said Cafferata, who is
entering his sixth season with the Saints. I love
San Mateo County players. I am (all about) San
Mateo County.

Manny Pacquiao will return to China for his next
fight, taking on Chris Algieri in the gambling
enclave of Macau.
The scheduled Nov. 22 ght for a piece of the wel-
terweight title held by Pacquiao comes a year after the
Filipino headlined the rst big ght card there with a
win over Brandon Rios. Promoter Bob Arum said
Pacquiao will likely ght at least once a year in Macau
the rest of his career.
Its almost like ghting at home so its a major
advantage for Manny, Arum said. Plus if he ghts in
Macau hes not subject to U.S. income taxes, which
are 39.5 percent.
Arum said the ght wont sell as well on pay-per-
view in the U.S. as it would if it was in Las Vegas, but
that will be offset by lower taxes on Pacquiaos purse
and a bigger site fee from the Venetian hotel-casino.
He said plans are also in place to sell the ght on TV
in China, where Pacquiao is becoming better known.
We hope to make up for any shortfall with the pay-
per-view in China, Arum said. The market is huge
and were going to sell it for like four dollars.
Pacquiao returns to Macau on a two-ght winning
streak that began last September with his win over
Rios. Before that, he had lost a disputed decision to
Timothy Bradley and was knocked out by Juan
Manuel Marquez.
Algieri, a former kick boxer from New York, is
unbeaten in 20 ghts with eight knockouts, and won
a split decision last month over Ruslan Provodnikov
in a light welterweight title ght that got him the
shot against Pacquiao. He is little known even in
boxing circles, but Arum said he brings a lot to the
He has a lot of things going for him. Hes a col-
lege graduate, good looking kid, a good boxer, Arum

Kitchens in traditional and vintage
homes often are dressed in conserva-
tive garb: neutral hues, stainless steel,
white-on-white or beige-on-beige.
Historically, however, kitchens were
actually pretty peppy, according to
Deborah Baldwin, editor of This Old
House magazine.
Pastel greens, blues, creams and
peaches reigned until the early 1930s,
when casual, built-in eating areas were
painted Kelly green, red and even
black, she says.
We have readers who are introduc-
ing brightly colored cabinets and
appliances in tomato, pumpkin and
daisy, she adds.
At this springs Architectural Digest
Home Design Show in New York, man-
ufacturers were showing lots of
vibrantly hued kitchen equipment.
Bertazzonis Arancio range came in
orange, burgundy and yellow. Big
Chill displayed a wall full of paint-box
hues including jadite (a milky green),
cherry and pink. AGAs Signature line
of beefy, professional-grade ranges
comes in intriguing colors like
aubergine, duck-egg blue, heather, pis-
tachio, claret and British racing green.

Fans of metallics might go for Blue
Stars dramatic collection of ranges,
wall ovens and hoods in copper, gold
and a chocolate-y ginger, as well as
several hundred other colors and n-
ishes. (www.bluestarcooking.com)
Kitchens of any vintage can look
great with colorful walls. Pumpkin,
cobalt and deep Prussian blue enhance
all kinds of woods, whether youre
working with 19th century pine,
Craftsman-era oak or midcentury wal-
Or consider the ceiling. In a small
galley kitchen, bold color on the ceil-
ing creates a jewel box effect. Deep
hues like eggplant, navy, magenta or
carmine compliment white cabinetry
in a large kitchen, and look great in
both natural and articial light.
New York designer Gideon
Mendelson applied a pea-green ging-
ham canvas cloth to the ceiling of a
country house kitchen, and painted the
island in a similar shade. With a col-
lection of vintage baskets displayed
along the tops of snowy wood cabi-
netry, the vibe is relaxed, fresh and
contemporary. (www.mendel-
Meg Caswell, a designer and host on
HGTVs Great Rooms, loves to add
color to kitchens. She used a back-
splash of crisp, blue and green fused-
glass tiles as a counterpoint to a rustic,
Old World-style metal and wood
kitchen island, glossy black cabinetry
and citrine wallpaper in an Art Deco-
era home. In another home, she mixed
sleek teal-and-white glass with farm-
house blue cabinets. (www.meg-
caswell.com ; www. hgtv.com)
Baldwin, of This Old House, advises
painting upper and base cabinets dif-
ferent colors, or painting an island or
hutch in a contrasting shade.
This helps reinforce their freestand-
ing furniture look, which harks back
to 18th- and 19th-century kitchens,
she says. (www.thisoldhouse.com)
Painting the floor either one
color or in a pattern like checkerboard
can reinforce the vintage look too,
she notes. Options include graphic
designs or stencils or illustrated rug
motifs. Better Homes & Gardens web-
site has lots of ideas.

percent. Other ideas are developing a
recount standard for all counties and having
the state foot the bill for recounts.
Mullin said these possibilities level the
playing eld because currently candidates
wanting a recount must pick up the tab them-
selves leaving those without the resources
unable to afford it and are subjected to dif-
ferent policies in different counties.
The counties are a patchwork of systems,
he said, and wealthy candidates could poten-
tially abuse the recount process by keeping
it going indenitely.
Mullin said a statewide recount is estimat-
ed to cost about $3 million which he called
fairly reasonable for a state of 40 million
The recount would be available for the
second- and third-place nishers in a June
primary and rst- and second-highest vote-
getters in a November general election.
The process Mullin hopes to reform is
playing out right now in the state con-
trollers race. Assemblyman John Perez, D-
Los Angeles, is demanding an unprecedent-
ed recount by hand in 15 counties because
only 481 votes separate him from second-
place nisher Betty T. Yee, a member of the
California Board of Equalization. Fresno
Mayor Ashley Swearengin nished rst.
Under current recount guidelines, Perez
not only pays for the process but also gets
to pick the order of counties and precincts
in which it happens.
Kern and Imperial counties are counting
first and nearly done. Next up are San
Bernadino and Fresno counties. San Mateo
County follows fth unless Perez calls off
the recount before that point. Perez has
picked up a few new votes during recounts in
the rst two counties.
In San Mateo County, Perez nished rst
with 30.8 percent of the vote followed by
Yee, Republican David Evans and
Swearengin. Perez beat Yee by 2,171 votes.
Perez wants recounts in 247 precincts here.
Mark Church, chief elections ofcer of
San Mateo County, said he wasnt taken
aback by Perezs request.
Its not unexpected, quite frankly. When a
statewide race is this close, its not a sur-
prise, Church said.
Church estimates the countys recount
will cost around $65,000 which will be
borne by Perez.
San Mateo County must prepare for its
recount as Fresno County does its tally
which means getting ready even though
Perez could theoretically pull the plug
Technically were supposed to be paid in
advance but we have no choice, he said.
The price tag includes $956 for each
recount board a panel of four who per-
form the recount and about $17,000 in
preparation work. Church said he needs
about 24 extra-help staff to do the work but
challenges include not knowing the exact
dates of the county recount and people
being gone on summer vacations.
Once underway, Church predicts the
recount will take eight days using six
Aside from the pending recount bill,
Mullin said he is also pursuing future legis-
lation to standardize county-by-county vote
counting and reporting procedures of absen-
tee ballots dropped off at polling places on
Election Day. The goal, he said, is avoiding
delays like those that plagued the con-
trollers race as votes were tallied and
reported on the secretary of states website.
Mullin cited one county which didnt
begin counting absentee ballots dropped off
at polls until weeks after Election Day.
Other counties reported different numbers
than what was reected on the secretary of
states website, he said.
There was a real breakdown and we need
to take a close look at what these counties
individuals processes are, he said.
Mullin expects that legislation to happen
in 2015 after hes rst tackled the recount
reform. While his proposed changes wont
have any impact on the controllers race,
Mullin said, depending on the level of sup-
port, it may be pushed as an urgency ordi-
nance in time for the November election.

ny chose to locate along the Peninsula
since the top talent seems to be there and
Redwood City is a good central location,
said Marketing Manager Julia Moorhead.
Were recruiting top talent to build up the
technology, Moorhead said. The best can-
didates have come through our own net-
work, so crowdsourcing is the best way to
get the best possible candidates. When
youre recruiting for top talent, you need to
think outside the box. We have one of the
best teams in Silicon Valley.
Headquartered at 805 Veterans Blvd., the

product ThoughtSpot Data Search Appliance
wont launch until this fall, likely in
September, the company has been garner-
ing a lot of website trafc and there are some
recognizable larger companies trialing the

In terms of the product, it allows compa-
nies to visualize their data.
Twenty years ago, newspapers and maga-
zines were where you went to get informa-
tion, she said. Now you can go on Google
and Bing and get search results in a less than
a second. The idea is if you can take busi-
ness data and put a search box on top of it,
so that any end-user can access and analyze
that data, it would be lightning in a bottle if
that could be delivered.
The company is kind of in a class of its
own, Moorhead said. There isnt anyone
else doing what theyre doing, and
approaching the business intelligence
problem in the same way, she said.
You still have to ask someone to gener-
ate a report for you, what we offer is totally
different from that, she said. Were giving

completely new way of thinking about busi-
ness intelligence.

LOS ANGELES These homes are set
apart by their amenities for dogs.
Standard Pacic Homes is building and
selling homes in 27 developments from
Florida to California and is believed to be
the rst to offer a pet suite as an option in
every one.
The suite is a 170-square-foot pet para-
dise with a step-in wash station, handheld
sprayer and leash lead; tile walls and oors;
a designated drying area with a commercial
sized pet dryer; a water station; automated
feeders; a large bunk-style bed; cabinets for
toys, treats and food; a stackable washer
and dryer; a French door that opens to a
puppy run; and a at-screen television set.
Standard Pacic, based in Irvine, decided
to offer pet suites after conducting livabili-
ty studies with homeowners. Pets were a
constant theme, said Jeffrey Lake, vice
president and national director of architec-
ture for Standard Pacic.
Devotion to pets is second-to-none, he
added. They are family.
The American Pet Products Association
reports that 68 percent of Americans own
pets and contribute to an industry worth
more than $55 billion annually.
Real estate ofcials say building homes
designed to cater to pets is a new concept,
but that remodels for pet owners have been
available for some time.
Adam Cowherd Construction in Ozark,
Missouri, installs pet-friendly additions to
homes. Cowherd said he recently nished a
job where there was an open shelf on the
end of a kitchen island to hold pet bowls.
Owners want it uniquely functional,
very contemporary and something that
catches the eye, Cowherd said.
However, only once in the last 10 years
has he been asked to build a whole room for
a pet, he added.
Melanie Dean lives with her family near
Dallas in a Standard Pacic home with a pet
package for their dog, Lola.
Lolas room makes life much easier,
Dean said. We dont have to use the
kitchen sink to wash yucky stuff anymore.
Standard Pacic Homes newest commu-
nity, called Avignon at Blackstone in Brea,
about 25 miles south of Los Angeles, fea-
tures homes that start at $710,000. The pet
spa option adds $35,000 to the price, Lake
Only the largest suite is available in Brea,
but in some of the other communities, there
are smaller sizes and prices, starting at 60
square feet for $8,000, he said.
During some of the model grand open-
ings at different communities, several
potential buyers brought their dogs to look
at the homes, said Danielle Tocco, the com-
panys director of communications.
Around 70 percent of those looking for a
home have pets, said Mollie Carmichael,
principal at the John Burns Real Estate
Consulting rm in Irvine.
Pet adoptions were also held at some
model grand openings, she said, just in
case somebody didnt have a dog but want-
ed one.
For cat owners, things can be rearranged
and swapped out, like a scratching post for
the dryer. And if no one is using the bath, it
can be used for sporting equipment, like
golf clubs.
Those looking to sell their homes may
nd their pet additions to be a benet .
Laundry rooms and mud rooms toward the
back of homes are popular, said Amy
Bohutinsky, chief marketing officer at
Chicago-based Zillow. Pet washrooms can
also be used as multipurpose mud rooms,
which may attract buyers.

Surfrider Foundation led the civil law-
suit in March 2013 in an attempt to
reopen the secluded sliver of coast just
south of Half Moon Bay to the public.
The case now rests in the hands of
Superior Court Judge Barbara Mallach
who is anticipated to rule in the next
30 to 60 days.
Venture capitalist Vinod Khosla
bought Martins Beach, previously
open to the public for more than 100
years, in 2008 for $37.5 million and
quickly closed the only access road to
the public. The property became con-
troversial as the rights of private
property owners were pitted against
Californias access to more than 1,000
miles of coastline.
Attorney Joe Cotchett, who repre-
sents Surfrider in its lawsuit, said
although Wednesday may be the last he
argues the case in the San Mateo
County Superior Court, he doubts the
results will end the saga to reopen the
beach. The case, Cotchett said, has
turned into a seminal one for private
property rights and could have a broad-
er effect on other disputes.
I think this is the case Mr. Khosla
wants to take to the Supreme Court,
Cotchett said. [Its a] philosophical
divide between those who have and
those who have not. This case is
not stopping here.
Surfrider claims the billionaire prop-
erty owner violated the California
Coastal Act when he changed its land
use by painting over signs and closing
the only access road to the secluded
beach before garnering mandated per-
mits from the California Coastal
The respondent contends private
property rights are historically pro-
tected under the Constitution and ceas-
ing voluntary public access on private
property is not considered develop-
ment under the Coastal Act.
Jeffrey Essner, the attorney repre-
senting Khoslas Martins Beach
LLCs, said the California and United
States supreme courts uphold the
rights of individuals to control access
to their property.
The county, the Coastal
Commission and now Surfrider by this
action, and Mr. Cotchetts demand for
penalties, are forcing my client to
accede his constitutional rights by
extortion and give up a protected and
cherished (private property) right,
Essner said. This is forbidden by the
Supreme Court and the United States
Surfrider maintains arguments over
the constitutionality of the California
Coastal Act and its assurance to main-
tain public access to coastal resources
should be discussed in front the
Coastal Commission and insist
Khosla abide by the law.
Prayer for relief
On behalf of the Coastal
Commission, the court can assess
nes between $1,000 and $1,500 for
each day someone violates the
California Coastal Act. Cotchett urged
nes be assessed beginning October
2010 and be paid into a special fund
through the California Coastal
Conservancy, which is overseen by
the Legislature and can only be spent
on coastal protection activities.
Cotchett said the court should penal-
ize Khosla as he knowingly violated
the Coastal Act and to ensure he fol-
lows through with applying for per-
mits, Cotchett said.
Somewhere, somehow, justice has
to reign down on this individual, Mr.
Khosla, and force him to go to the
Coastal Commission and unlock that
gate, Cotchett said.
Essner argued groups like Surfrider
and the Friends of Martins Beach,
which led a lawsuit alleging Khosla
violated the states Constitution and
was shot down last year, equate to coer-
The threat of an activist organiza-
tion to impose tens of millions of dol-
lars for exercising his constitutional
rights is the type of extortion the
Supreme Court explicitly found uncon-
stitutional, Essner said.
Wealth and status
Both sides argue Khoslas wealth has
been used as a pawn in the case with
Surfrider alleging the billionaire
believes he is above the law and Essner
contending the previous owners, the
Deeney family, was never questioned
over their disclosure of when to open
or close the beach.
Fluid throughout the case were tales
of Martins Beach historically being a
prized surf break, a place for families
to picnic and a unique gem along the
coast. However, Essner argued that era
has passed.
My client understands that genera-
tions of families visited Martins
Beach. The cherished memories they
made there. But the fact is those treas-
ured spots in the sand have long since
washed away, Essner said. Martins
Beach was no longer the place it was in
the past and my client cannot be forced
to recreate history and give up his con-
stitutional rights.
Surprisingly, Essner stated Khosla
originally planned to keep Martins
Beach open in a manner similar to the
Deeney family, but the county sent a
letter questioning why he closed it dur-
ing the winter and instructing him to
operate the beach as though it were a
Essner argued operating Martins
Beach as it was previously would
require bathroom upgrades, picnic
tables, trash cans and would ultimately
force Khosla to operate a business at a
Surfrider has argued Khosla was well
aware of the access conditions prior to
buying the property and is required by
law to receive approval from the
Coastal Commission if he wishes to
close Martins Beach to the public.
Other efforts
Khosla had not spoken publicly
about owning Martins Beach until
subpoenaed to testify in the case.
Surfrider and state Sen. Jerry Hill, D-
San Mateo, have said Khosla has dis-
missed all opportunities for an
amenable compromise.
Concurrent with the Surfrider case,
Hill proposed Senate Bill 968, which
would require Khosla to negotiate with
the State Lands Commission to reopen
the beach. If a compromise cannot be
met by Jan. 1, 2016, Khosla could face
the state using condemnation for a
right-of-way easement to create an
access road off Highway 1.
Hills legislation easily passed the
Senate and was amended in the
Assembly to encourage, but not require
the State Lands Commission to use its
already allotted authority to use emi-
nent domain. The bill has been referred
to the Committee on Appropriations
where it must be heard by August.
Should it pass, the bill will go to the
Assembly oor where it will need at
least 41 votes to pass.
Eric Buescher, an attorney represent-
ing Surfrider, maintains the case isnt
about the constitutionality of the
Coastal Act and Martins Beach has
been needlessly closed for too long
and the public need not wait any
The question here is not about the
defendants private property rights.
The question here is about whether the
defendant violated the Coastal Act.
Disagreeing with the Coastal Act is
not a valid reason to refuse to comply
with it, Buescher said. The time for
[Khosla] to be held liable and account-
able for [his] contract is now, so the 6
million people who live within an
hours drive of the San Mateo County
coast are not deprived of its

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Hold on to your assets
and avoid lending money or possessions. Be rm with
friends or relatives who make unreasonable requests
or demands. Offer suggestions, nothing more.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) This is not a good time to
lock yourself into a long-term agreement. Find out all
the details before you make a promise that you may
not want to honor.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) To keep harmony in
your business or personal relationships, you must
be willing to compromise. Treat others beliefs with
respect and listen attentively to peoples concerns.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Dont take chances with
health, money or family matters. You have to spend
your time wisely to avoid burning out. Only take on
what you know you can handle.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) It may seem as though
everything you desire is right in front of you. Set a limit
before you buy something unnecessary. Luxury items
may tempt you, but the novelty will wear off quickly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You will face
opposition if you make unwanted changes at home.
Consider what others want, and nd a way to satisfy
everyone before you move ahead with your plans.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Show your friends
and family how much you appreciate them. Plan a get-
together, or offer to do something that you know will
make life easier for those you love.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Do whatever it
takes to make a move that will put you into a higher
earning bracket. A successful interview can pave
the way to a better position.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) You will confuse
someone with your mixed emotional signals. Listen
to this persons concerns, and make your feelings
and plans perfectly clear.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Consider making
changes at home that will make your life easier or your
surroundings more comfortable. You dont have to
spend a lot to make your place more inviting.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Consider trying out
for a leadership position. Youll be recognized as a
person who can help those in need, and you will be
rewarded for your efforts.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Dont let anyone push
you around. If you dont speak up now, you are likely to
end up in a compromising position on a regular basis.

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-

in their advertisements that they are not

Typhoon kills 20 in
Philippines, spares Manila
MANILA, Philippines Atyphoon blew
out of the northern Philippines on
Wednesday after causing at least 20 deaths,
knocking out power in entire provinces,
damaging two parked jetliners and forcing
nearly half a million people to ee from its
lethal wind and rains, ofcials said.
The eye of Typhoon Rammasun made a late
shift away from Manila, but its peak winds of
93 miles per hour and gusts up to 115 mph
forced down trees and electric posts and
ripped off roofs across the capital of 12 mil-
lion people that largely shut down ahead of
the deluge.
Although Rammasun packed far less power
than Typhoon Haiyan, haunting memories of
last years horrific storm devastation
prompted many villagers to rapidly move to
safety at the prodding of authorities. Of the
half a million people affected by Rammasun,
more than 423,000 ed to emergency shel-
ters, according to the National Disaster Risk
Reduction and Management Council.
Assad declares victory,
push to topple him tenuous
BEIRUT In a lavish ceremony, a smiling
and condent President Bashar Assad was
sworn in for a third seven-year term on
Wednesday, praising his supporters for
defeating the dirty war and denouncing
insurgents who have failed in trying to
brainwash you or break your will.
As he declared victory, the Western-backed
push to topple him or reach a political deal
seem increasingly elusive. And while new
conicts in the region have grabbed atten-
tion, Syrias 3-year-old civil war is grinding
on without reprieve, with 170,000 dead and a
third of the country displaced. While combat
continues along all major front line towns
and cities across the country opposition
activists say more than 400 people have
been killed in the past three days alone
much of the ghting has now shifted.

GAZACITY, Gaza Strip The Israeli mil-
itary agreed to a U.N.-brokered ve-hour
humanitarian pause starting Thursday in
its strikes on the Gaza Strip to allow
Palestinians to restock food, water and
other necessities, hours after an attack by
an Israeli naval vessel killed four
Palestinian boys playing on the beach.
In response to a call by the U.N., the mil-
itary said in a statement Wednesday that it
would hold its re for ve hours starting at
10:00 a.m. (0900 GMT, 5 a.m. EDT.) but
warned it will retaliate rmly and decisive-
ly if Hamas or other militant groups launch
attacks on Israel during that time. It also
said residents of three Gaza neighborhoods
asked Wednesday to evacuate their homes
should be out by the time the pause expires.
U.N. deputy spokesman Farhan Haq told
the Associated Press on Wednesday that
Robert Serry, the U.N. special coordinator
for the Middle East peace process, made the
appeal for a unilateral humanitarian pause
after talks with Israels Coordination Ofce
for Government Affairs in the (Palestinian)
The announcement came after a day of
Israeli airstrikes and Palestinian militant
rocket attacks as Hamas formally rejected a
cease-re proposal that had been accepted
by Israel to end the 9-day-old conict that
officials say has left at least 213
Palestinians and one Israeli dead.
The four boys, who were cousins and ages
9 to 11, were killed Wednesday while play-
ing on a beach off a coastal road west of
Gaza City, said Ashraf al-Kidra, a
Palestinian health ofcial. Seven others
adults and children were wounded in the
strike, which Palestinian human rights
activist Khalil Abu Shamala said came from
an Israeli naval vessel operating offshore.
On the beach, a witness, who identied
himself only as Abu Ahmed, said the boys
were scavenging for scrap metal when a rst
shell hit a shipping container used in the
past by the Hamas security forces.
He said the boys ed. The second rocket
hit all of them, he said.
Mobile phone video circulated on
Facebook showed the small bloodied bodies
lying in the sand. One tiny corpse, lying
face down, was twisted, with the legs at
sharp angle to the torso.
The boys uncle, Abdel Kareem Baker, 41,
raged at Israel after the attack.
Its a cold-blooded massacre, he said.
Its a shame who come they didnt identify
them as kids with all of the advanced tech-
nology they claim theyre using.
