Council advised to deny rink replacement plan


San Mateo staff recommends siding with Planning Commission on Bridgepointe plan
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

In preparation for the longawaited San Mateo City Council


meeting to consider the fate of the
Bridgepointe Shopping Center ice
rink Monday, April, 18, city staff
released a lengthy report suggesting officials side with the

Planning Commission and deny


owner SPI Holdings request to
demolish it for new retail.
Monday, April 18, will mark the
first time the City Council will
publicly weigh in on SPIs controversial proposal since the rink
was closed in 2013. The Planning
Commission chastised SPI for the
second time last December for its

request to amend the sites master


plan, which would allow it to construct more retail in place of the
rink, and advised the council to do
the same.
With Councilwoman Maureen
Freschet announcing Wednesday
she would recuse herself, now the
proposal could be rejected by just
two no votes from her fellow

councilmembers.
At this point, were all waiting
to hear what the City Council has
to say, said city contract planner
Dave Hogan.
The lengthy staff report was
released Thursday in anticipation
of next weeks meeting expected
to attract hundreds of rink supporters and children clad in ice hockey

or figure skating gear.


Its a vocal crowd that testified
for hours at commission meetings
and public forums over the last few
years. While reviewing SPIs
application, the commission listened to nearly 80 speakers who
all supported preserving the rink

Ever since the new interchange on Broadway in Burlingame opened, merchants near the interchange have been
pleased with the improvement of traffic flow around the area.

New highway interchange satisfies


Burlingames Broadway businesses
Patrons return as traffic woes soothed by project, merchant claims
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Merchants and patrons to businesses along Broadway in


Burlingame are pleased with the
improvements brought to the
commercial district by the recent
opening of a new highway overpass.
John Kevranian, head of the
Broadway Business Improvement
District, said traffic is flowing
more freely throughout the area
since the new overpass was
opened, which in turn has drawn

more shoppers to nearby stores.


They have made some improvements, and we are very happy,
said Kevranian, owner of Nuts For
Candy. It is safer and it is a lot
better.
Caltrans workers opened the
new overpass at the Broadway
interchange and took down the old
structure over consecutive weekends last month, finishing the
second phase of a project designed
to ease congestion at the historically problematic exchange from
Highway 101.
Business throughout the com-

mercial district was unaffected by


the final transition work, said
Kevranian, as much of it took
place late at night and Caltrans
was successful in spreading awareness in the weeks leading up to the
project.
It was very well communicated
and there was no impact with the
demolition of the old overpass,
he said. It was very smooth.
Stretches of Highway 101 were
closed overnight during the last
couple weekends in March to
allow workers to open the new

Six months after Scott Grindy

against his former employer citing emotional distress caused by

In the claim filed April 8, he

Grindy had worked for the

BART projects potential


$477 million budget deficit
By Scott Morris
BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

As revenue growth slows, BART is facing


the possibility of a $477 million budget
deficit over the next 10 years, BART officials said Thursday.
BART staff presented a preliminary budget
to the agencys Board of Directors that projected slowing revenues from ticket sales
and tax sources, leading to a budget shortfall
of about $400 million over the next decade.
The $400 million projection did not take
into account the impact of a tentative agreement reached with BARTs labor unions this
week, which if passed would cost $77 million more over the next 10 years.
While BARTs weekday ridership has been
growing rapidly, the agency projects that
growth to slow since the system has reached
capacity in its most heavily traveled areas,
mainly in San Francisco and through the
Transbay Tube.
But while weekday ridership during commute hours is up, weekend ridership is down.

BART officials havent quite figured out


why that is, but said that high weekend ridership depends on the number of special
events like baseball playoff games. San
Francisco lifting metered parking fees on
Sundays in 2014 also likely had an impact
and BART hasnt studied what impact appbased ride-booking services might have.
The agency is looking into introducing
incentives for taking BART on weekends.
BART director Joel Keller suggested one
way to raise more revenue and reduce congestion would be raising BARTs base fare
of $1.95 for short trips, cheaper than AC
Transits $2.10 and Munis $2.25 fare for a
single ride.
What were doing is were providing better service for less price, Keller said.
The budget projection does not take into
account the possibility of voters approving
a $3. 5 billion bond for infrastructure
improvements that the board is expected to
put on Novembers ballot.
BART will hold a public hearing on its
budget on May 26 and pass a budget on June
9.

Coastal Wildflower festival, Earth Day activities Saturday

Boutell, founder of the event and a

parks have such a major role along
the coast and preserving the natural area and providing recreational
areas for the community and visitors. Its a draw for people from all
over. I think having this event in
Half Moon Bay increases the
understanding in the community
about what parks do so people
have more appreciation for it.
Boutell works with the State

grow a variety of plants used to
help maintain the surrounding
bluffs. This Saturday attendees can

Crime rings targeting


state almonds, walnuts
By Scott Smith
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FRESNO International crime rings targeting Californias booming agriculture


industry are increasingly stealing truckloads
of high-value nuts, prompting authorities
and the firms falling victim to ramp up
efforts to break the spree costing millions.
The sophisticated organizations in many
cases use high-tech tactics, hacking into
trucking companies to steal their identities.
Armed with false shipping papers, they pose
as legitimate truckers, driving off with loads
of nuts such as almonds, walnuts or pistachios valued at $150,000, and some worth
$500,000 each.
Days later, when a shipment fails to arrive
to its intended destination, the nuts may
already be in another state or on a ship destined for Europe or Asia, where they fetch top
dollar on the black market, authorities say.
Nut thefts hit an all-time high in
California last year with losses totaling
$4.6 million from 31 reported cases, more
than the three previous years combined,
according to CargoNet, an alliance of cargo
shipping firms and law enforcement agencies aimed at preventing losses.
Losses for all four years combined reached
nearly $7.6 million, the group said.
Its made my life miserable, said Todd
Crosswell, general manager of Caro Nut Co.
Caro was victimized six times last year for
a total loss of $1.2 million. In each case,
thieves stole cashews imported from

Vietnam and Africa that were roasted, salted


and packaged in Fresno.
You get hit with that kind of loss it
hurts, Crosswell said.
The value of nuts grown and processed in
California, the nations leading agricultural
state, have soared in recent years as global
demand for the health-food snack grows in
places such as China and emerging
economies.
California produces more almonds, walnuts and pistachios than any other state,
with a combined value of $9.3 billion in
2014. Almonds alone were valued at $5.9
billion, according to the U.S. Department of
Agriculture.
The high value of nuts grabbed the attention of criminal organizations, who are
exploiting weaknesses in the cargo shipping industry to reap big profits, said Dan
Bryant, supervisory special agent for the
violent and organized crimes programs of
the FBI Sacramento office.
Bryant declined to identify any organizations under suspicion, citing an ongoing
criminal investigation.
Its not just some teenage kids ripping off
nuts, he said. These are sophisticated people.
Local authorities also are taking action.
One state lawmaker has introduced a bill to
fund a statewide taskforce targeting all types
of cargo thefts. And law enforcement officials and nut processors met Thursday to
share information to help prevent more nut
thefts.

Board member Madeline Janis also read

are we not able to focus on those kinds of

SACRAMENTO Anti-smoking groups


on Thursday stepped up pressure on the
nations largest public pension system to
drop plans to consider re-investing in tobacco stocks 15 years after selling them off.
The California Public Employees
Retirement System has been reconsidering
its divestments since a consultant reported
last year that the tobacco sell-off has cost as
much as $3 billion in lost returns. Board
members are scheduled to decide how to proceed next week, but a final decision will take
up to two years.
In a letter to the head of the CalPERS
board, executives from the American Heart
Association, American Cancer Society and
the American Lung Association say investing in tobacco companies would send the
message that California supports the industry.
It is simple: investing in Big Tobacco
may bring in some additional funds, but at
what cost? they wrote. California will end
up paying much more, physically and financially.

Obamas power over immigration


drives Supreme Court dispute

Poll: Americans prefer low


prices to Made in the USA
By Josh Boak
and Emily Swanson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The vast


majority of Americans say they
prefer lower prices instead of paying a premium for items labeled
Made in the USA, even if it
means those cheaper items are
made abroad, according to an
Associated Press-GfK poll.
While presidential candidates
like Donald Trump and Bernie
Sanders are vowing to bring back
millions of American jobs lost to
China and other foreign competitors, public sentiment reflects core
challenges confronting the U.S.
economy. Incomes have barely
improved, forcing many households to look for the most convenient bargains instead of goods made
in America. Employers now seek

workers with college degrees, leaving those with only a high school
degree who once would have held
assembly lines jobs in the lurch.
And some Americans who work at
companies with clients worldwide
see themselves as part of a global
market.
Nearly three in four say they
would like to buy goods manufactured inside the United States, but
those items are often too costly or
difficult to find, according to the
survey released Thursday. A mere 9
percent say they only buy
American.
Asked about a real world example
of choosing between $50 pants
made in another country or an $85
pair made in the United States
one retailer sells two such pairs
made with the same fabric and
design 67 percent say theyd buy
the cheaper pair.

WASHINGTON The raging


political fight over immigration
comes to the Supreme Court on
Monday in a dispute that could
affect millions of people who are
in the United States illegally.
The court is weighing the fate of
Obama administration programs
that could shield roughly 4 million people from deportation and
grant them the legal right to hold a
job.
Among them is Teresa Garcia of
suburban Seattle, who has spent
14 years in the United States illegally after staying beyond the
expiration of her tourist visa in
2002.
Shes already gotten much of
what she wanted when she chose
not to return to her native Mexico.
Her two sons are benefiting from
an earlier effort that applies to

people
who
were brought
here illegally as
ch i l dren .
Garcias
11year-old daughter

American citizen.
Thats why I
Barack Obama come,
for the
opportunity for the children and
because it is much safer here, the
45-year-old Garcia said in an interview with the Associated Press.
Now, she would like the same for
herself and her husband, a trained
accountant who works construction jobs. Neither can work legally.
To have a Social Security number, that means for me to have a
better future. When I say better
future, we are struggling with the
little amount of money my husband is getting for the whole fam-

ily. It makes for stress every day.


We struggle to pay for everything, Garcia said.
The programs announced by
President Barack Obama in
November 2014 would apply to
parents whose children are citizens or are living in the country
legally. Eligibility also would be
expanded for the presidents 2012
effort that helped Garcias sons.
More than 700,000 people have
taken advantage of that earlier
program, Deferred Action for
Childhood Arrivals. The new program for parents and the expanded
program for children could reach
as many as 4 million people,
according to the nonpartisan
Migration Policy Institute.
Texas and 25 other states sued to
block the new initiatives soon
after they were announced, and
lower courts have ruled in their
favor. The programs have never
taken effect.

Meteorologists: El Nio weakens, here comes La Nia


By Seth Borenstein
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON In the midst of


an epic El Nio, federal meteorologists say its flip side, La Nia, is
around the corner.
The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administrations
Climate Prediction Center on
Thursday reported that the current
strong El Nio is weakening but
likely to stick around a couple
more months. At the same time,
NOAA issued a formal watch for a
fall arrival of La Nia, saying

there is a 70 percent chance for the


flip side of El Nio.
Prediction center deputy director
Mike Halpert said it often means
dry weather for the U.S. Southwest
and parts of California, which
havent quite recovered from a
four-year drought.
A dry winter next year wont be
good, I can assure you of that,
Halpert said.
What may be truly confusing is
this summers Atlantic hurricane
season, Halpert said. At the start
of the summer, Earth may still be
in the tail end of an El Nio, which

often reduces the number of


Atlantic hurricanes. But by the
time the hurricane season hits its
fall peak, it should be a La Nia,
which tends to increase the number of storms.
La Nia often means wetter winters in the Pacific Northwest and
Ohio Valley and drier in the south,
especially Florida, Halpert said. It
often means fewer East Coast
snowstorms, but a bit colder
weather, especially in the
Northern Plains, with the
Northeast more a wild card, he
said.

Strong earthquake kills nine,


injures more than 800 in Japan
By Emily Wang
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KUMAMOTO, Japan At least nine people were killed and more than 800 injured by
a magnitude 6.5 earthquake that toppled
houses and buckled roads in southern Japan,
the governments chief spokesman said
Friday.
Yoshihide Suga said he would visit the
area, 1,300 kilometers (800 miles) southwest of Tokyo, to assess the damage.
He said 1,600 soldiers had been deployed,
and TV reports showed some delivering
blankets and adult diapers to the thousands
of people who took shelter because their
homes were wrecked or unsafe.
About 44, 000 people sought refuge,
though some returned home in the morning.

The quake struck at 9:26 p.m. Thursday at


a depth of 11 kilometers (7 miles) near
Kumamoto city on the island of Kyushu, the
Japan Meteorological Agency said. There
was no tsunami risk.
The shaking was so violent I couldnt
stand still, said Hironobu Kosaki, a
Kumamoto Prefectural Police night-duty
official.
The worst damage was in the town of
Mashiki, 15 kilometers (9 miles) east of
Kumamoto city. Eight of the nine killed
where from the town.
Suga said 53 of the injured were seriously
hurt. Those killed ranged in age from 29 to
94. Most were elderly.
Earlier he said at least 19 houses had collapsed, and hundreds of calls came in reporting building damage and people buried under
debris or trapped inside.

Do the right
thing, save our ice rink

Find the political


courage to save Bridgepointe

Editor,
Thousands of people are anxiously
awaiting the decision of the City
Council on the fate of the
Bridgepointe ice rink next week.
Many gure skaters and hockey players futures in the sport will be decided
by this vote. But it is much more than
just those who will be impacted.
This rink was used by the whole
community. Almost every Friday
night from September through May,
schools ran family fundraisers to help
with costs. The Girl Scouts held a
large skate night a couple of times a
year. It was a favorite eld trip for the
special-needs kids who came every
month. Countless memories were
made every weekend at birthday parties. Businesses came to bond at open
skate or during a game of broomball.
Senior citizens came to get a little
exercise and enjoy their lifelong love
of skating.
There are very few places that you
can see people from 3 years old to 93
enjoying the same activity. I hope
the city listens to what the community is saying, as they are very clearly
saying they need this rink to be
reopened. Please do the right thing.

Editor,
Iwant to write in topublicly support the ice rink at Bridgepointe.
The upcoming vote on whether the
city will keep the ice rink is very
important to me and many others.
This vote will affect generations of
county residents who may never get
the opportunity to enjoy ice skating, figure skating, broomball and
hockey as regular recreational activities. I hope the city leaders recognize the opportunity it has to keep a
unique amenity which benefits so
many people and I hope they find the
political courage to vote to keep the
ice rink.

Kim Delli-Gatti
San Mateo

What type of
a community are we?
Editor,
The Bridgepointe ice rink has been
shuttered for nearly three years. The
City Council will vote on Monday,
April 18, whether to allow SPI to tear
it down and replace it with retail or
uphold the master plan. Its vote will
determine what kind of community
San Mateo is to become. Will we be a
community with unique recreational
opportunities? Will we be a community where health and quality of life is
clearly a priority? Will we be a community where our elected ofcials
have stood by and fought for what the
community has valued and protected?
San Mateo must not become a community that forever lost the ice rink
that served people of all ages, genders and abilities, 12 months of the
year, rain or shine. SPI has punished
this community long enough. Their
actions have shown what they think
of our community. Monday night, the
City Council will show us what they
think.

Save Bridgepointe ice rink


Editor,
I hope the San Mateo City Council
understands that it is the voice of a
community. Individual citizens are
mostly powerless to stand up to big
money corporations like SPI. The
individuals voice is amplified by
the larger community.The communitys voice is expressed through its
elected representatives.The community supporting return of the ice rink
at Bridgepointe is not the enemy.
The City Council needs to hear
us.Dont let SPI corporate dollars
trample our voices. Save the rink.

Editor,
The article, Ice rink supporters

edition of the Daily Journal, was
beautifully written and so very true.
My daughter trained as a figure skater
from the time she was 7 years old at
Belmont Iceland and its been our
home away from home. She became a
gold medalist with the United States
Figure Skating Association, is a gold
test skater, technical advisor and currently coaches side by side with
Jeffrey Crandell, mentioned in the
article. They are good friends.
I truly support any action that can
be taken to keep Belmont Iceland for
the families and children on the
Peninsula. My daughter had an exciting career and now inspires other
young kids to greatness. Its a beautiful wonderful sport along with
hockey and gives children such a
wonderful opportunity to achieve

Standard time for the children


Editor,
Congress opted to alter the six
months standard time and six months
daylight saving time arrangement to
four months standard and eight
months daylight. Are we truly acclimated to this adverse arrangement? A
decade of this is enough.
Let us respect and appreciate the
Earth on which we dwell and synchronize with its rotation. The children

children wondered why it was so dark
the morning of March 14?
Think of the children and not ourselves. Go outside and enjoy a sundial.

Drop your weapon


Editor,
I read Mike Flynns letter, Good
work police the other day (in the
April 8 edition of the Daily Journal).
Really Mike? You think they aimed
for his arms? Did you ever think he
had his arms blocking his chest? I
dont know of any cop trained not to
shoot for the chest. Heres a thought.
When the police tell you to drop your
weapon, drop it. I dont know where
people got the idea that they dont
have to drop a weapon. If you shoot
at a cop you get what you deserve. I
support the police. I dont support
some idiot who wants to second guess
a situation that an ofcer might face.
Society needs to support the difcult
work our police departments do for
us. I have no sympathy for some violent criminal who wants to wave a
weapon around and gets shot.

City leadership key


to retaining ice rink
By Dina Artz and Julie McAuliffe

n Monday night, our elected ofcials will decide


the fate of Lot 5 at the Bridgepointe Shopping
Center. The developer SPI will present their arguments, as will many community members who, for
decades, enjoyed skating in San Mateo. The stakes are
high: for the developer, the change in land use designation is worth many millions in real estate value; for the
community, the permanent loss of this rink would leave
only one ice rink on the entire Peninsula serving the
800,000 people of San Mateo County. Just one. This decision is in the hands of the ve members of San Mateos
City Council. We call upon them to see clearly, think critically, exercise good
judgment and act with
vision and integrity.
As far as seeing
clearly, councilmembers will need to weed
out information from
misinformation.
Unfortunately, SPI
hasnt made it easy.
The truth is the rink
Julie McAuliffe
Dina Artz
closed because SPI
closed it. It did not go out of business. Ice Center
Enterprises lease was not renewed after being told by SPI
that they planned to demolish the building interior.
Doesnt it seem an odd coincidence that the only other
tenant of Lot 5, a popular Japanese restaurant named
Hokkaido, would go out of business at the same time?
On thinking critically, the councilmembers will need to
get to the bottom of several other issues. First, the conditions of approval did not say operating ice rink. In
approving the master plan, could the original intent have
been for a dry hole where an ice sheet could go to be the
communitys benet, like some sort of public monument?
In forcing the closure because the documents do not say
operating ice rink, SPI and their lawyers have intended
to use the letter of the law to skate over the spirit of the
law and the will of the council.
Former mayor Robert Ross proposed a waiver to build
higher. SPI speculated that Target would not allow it. We
have not seen any indication that SPI made the effort to
contact Target and explore that option.
SPI would like folks to believe this is about private
property rights, but its not, its about the master plan.
When you buy property under a master plan you expect
the plan provides protection from another property
owner pursuing their self-interest at the expense of your
own. SPI will say this is about the vibrancy of the center
but its only the half they own that benets them. Do you
think Target and Toys R Us, which purchased its own
property in that complex, prefer a master plan with a
recreational attraction to draw shoppers or one with more
competition? Its like a community that enjoys a shared
vista only to nd one neighbor purchased the protected
lot and now wants to change the master plan so they can
build a home and enjoy the view exclusively. And the
increased taxes? Another store will predominantly take
sales from other San Mateo retailers. People dont suddenly have more money to spend because a new store
opens.
On the matter of exercising good judgment, our councilmembers will need to keep their sights on whats right
versus wrong. Sadly, SPI chose this course of action and
now portrays itself as an unfairly maligned developer.
This was not the only path available to them. They closed
the rink without an alternative use approved, blamed it on
the operator and planned to demolish it prior to obtaining
a demolition permit. Win-win proposals by city ofcials
have been dismissed. Planning Commissioner Chris
Massey asked them to reopen the rink while their application was pending. They deed that request. Essentially,
they are holding the community hostage. SPI can pursue
their interests without behaving this way. Finally, councilmembers will need to judge whether its a good deal for
the city to accept the $3 million offer when the city is
legally entitled to much more.
On the matter of acting with vision, they will need to
peer into the future and use the same kind of foresight as
our previous city ofcials did when they protected the rink
in the rst place, preserving a better future for us all. The
master plan makes plain that earlier councilmembers recognized the value to the community in protecting a
scarce, truly unique and high-quality recreational option
in a city running short on space.
We call upon our city ofcials to remember the intentions of their predecessors and then break new horizons.
This is an opportunity to do something great for San
Mateo. The city should reject this application to change
the master plan and insist that the developer, who has
already caused unnecessary harm to the community, come
to the table and work with the city to solve problems
rather than create them. Preserve the ice rink and provide
additional retail space ensuring Bridgepointes vibrancy
as a destination for years to come.

Stock indexes wobble to a mixed finish


By Marley Jay

DOW JONES INDUSTRIALS

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK U.S. stocks hardly budged Thursday and finished


with a mix of small gains and
losses. Banks and airlines rose on
strong first-quarter reports, while
consumer products companies
struggled.
The market wavered throughout
the day. Stocks are coming off
two big gains in a row and are
trading at their highest levels of
the year.
People are getting a bit more
confident of whats going on in
the market, said J.J. Kinahan,
chief strategist for TD Ameritrade.
The Dow Jones industrial average added 18.15 points, or 0.1
percent, to 17, 926. 43. The
Standard & Poors 500 index
ticked up 0. 36 points to
2,082.78. The Nasdaq composite
lost 1.53 points to 4,945.89.
The results from banks havent
been great so far, but investors
expected even worse because of
shaky loans to energy companies
and low interest rates that have
made lending less profitable.

Low: 17,885.44

Kinahan said banks are benefiting


from lower expenses and more
people are seeking mortgage
loans.
If businesses are starting to
expand a little bit, if the consumer
is out there trying to buy housing,

income for these institutions, he
said. Investors feared this was
going to be an absolutely disastrous earnings season, he said.

McDonalds stores targeted by


protests for $15 an hour, union
By Candice Choi
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Protesters calling


for pay of $15 an hour and a union
were at McDonalds restaurants
around the country and overseas
Thursday as part of an ongoing
push targeting the worlds biggest
hamburger chain.
The Fight for $15 campaign
says low-wage employees including airport workers, adjunct professors and home care workers
turned out to show their solidarity
with fast-food workers. They say
theyre targeting McDonalds
because of its ability to influence
pay practices throughout the economy.
The push is being backed by the
Service Employees International

Union and began in late 2012,


with striking fast-food workers in
New York City. Since then, the
growing demonstrations have
helped make hourly pay a major
political issue.
The success has prompted organizers to expand their push to energize new swaths of workers to
fight for higher pay and unionization.
Organizers said strikes and
protests were planned for cities
including Boston, Chicago, Los
Angeles and Miami. In Paris, about
100 people waving red union flags
protested outside a McDonalds
restaurant at Disneyland.
In New York, demonstrators were
planning to march crosstown to a
Republican gala in the early
evening.

The campaign is taking place as


McDonalds Corp. tries to reinvigorate its business and win back
customers. This week, executives
met with franchisees in Florida for
a bi-annual convention and discussed plans for a rebound.
Lisa McComb, a McDonalds
representative, said the company
gives workers access to programs
that help them earn high school
and college degrees. She noted
McDonalds raised pay last year at
company-owned stores in the
U.S., which account for about 10
percent of its more than 14,000
locations. The hike for starting
pay was for $1 above the local
minimum wage.
We proudly invest in the future
of those who work in McDonalds
restaurants, McComb said.

investors have about the financial


industry. The stock slipped 24
cents to $48. 79. Bank stocks
jumped Wednesday after JPMorgan
Chase, the largest U. S. bank,
reported results that beat expectations.
Data storage company Seagate
Technology said its third-quarter
profit margins and revenue will be
lower than expected. The company said its seeing lower demand
for some kinds of hard disk drives.

Low rates, troubled loans


send bank profits lower
PHOENIX 2016 is getting off
to a lousy start for major U.S.
banks. Energy loans are turning
bad, low interest rates are making
it hard to make profitable loans,
and markets have been volatile.
On the bright side, first-quarter
results from banks, which started
coming out this week, havent
been quite as bad as many analysts
feared. Banks are still the worstperforming industry in the stock
market so far this year, however.
The financial component of the
Standard & Poors 500 index is
down 3.5 percent.
Also, several banks found out
this week they have a new regulatory headache: The Federal Reserve
and the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation told five major
lenders that their proposed plans
for how they would be wound down
in the event of another financial
crisis arent up to snuff. They have
until October to file new plans.

Its stock plunged $6.82, or 20.1


percent, to $27.11, by far the
largest loss in the S&P 500.
Competitor Western Digital fell
$2.98, or 6.7 percent, to $41.82
and NetApp lost $1.06, or 4 percent, to $25.64.
Delta Air Lines first-quarter
profit jumped 27 percent, helped
by low fuel costs. Deltas stock
gained 45 cents to $48.49, but its
competitors had even bigger
gains. American Airlines rose
$1.23, or 3.1 percent, to $41.17
and United added $1.15, or 2.1
percent, to $56.73. JetBlue and
Southwest also rose.
Pier 1 Imports fell after the
home decor company gave a shaky
outlook for the first half of its fiscal year. Pier 1 said it expects
pressure on its profit and sales
because of marketing expenses,
including a return to TV advertising, as well as price markdowns.
The stock gave up 43 cents, or 5.9
percent, to $6.91.
Benchmark U.S. crude oil fell 26
cents to $41.50 a barrel in New

Sharks take Game 1


By Greg Beacham
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES Joe Pavelski broke a tie


with his second goal early in the third period,
and the San Jose Sharks opened their playoff
return with a 4-3 victory over the Los
Angeles Kings on Thursday night.
Brent Burns and Tomas Hertl scored for the
Sharks in their first postseason game since
losing four straight to the Kings in 2014,
completing a seven-game flop in the first
round. Los Angeles rode the momentum to its
second Stanley Cup title, but both California

Sharks 4, Kings 3
rivals missed the playoffs last year.
San Joses Martin Jones made 19 saves
against his former Los Angeles teammates in
his first career playoff start.
Trevor Lewis scored a short-handed goal
and Jonathan Quick stopped 19 shots for the
Kings.
Game 2 is Saturday night at Staples Center.
Jake Muzzin and Jeff Carter also scored, but
Los Angeles struggled to keep up for long
stretches of the two-time champs return to
the postseason.

The fourth playoff meeting in six seasons


between these familiar foes got off to a
thrilling start, with both teams trading huge
hits and erasing early deficits within seconds
of falling behind.
San Jose dominated long stretches of play,
but Los Angeles kept it close with two goals
banked in off the Sharks defense.
San Jose got another monster offensive
game from Pavelski, their captain and a 38goal scorer. He put the Sharks ahead 17 seconds into the third period, circling the net
with the puck and holding off Anze Kopitar

M-A closing
in on eighth
title in a row
By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

If there ever was a day for the MenloAtherton boys tennis team to lose a
Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division
match this season, Thursday was it.
The Bears were taking on second-place
Aragon, who still had an outside chance to
catch M-A at the top of the standings with a
win, as M-A coach Tom Sorenson decided to
give many of his regular starters a day off.
Sorenson sat six of his top 10 players and
of the four starters in the lineup, none were
in their traditional spots.
Thats a little bit of a risk, Sorenson
said. We have a core of 15 who could all be
in the starting lineup. It can be tough. All
these guys are competitive.
Turns out even the Bears B team is too
much for the rest of the PAL to handle as MA posted a 7-0 sweep to improve to 11-0 in
league play with three matches to play in
the regular season.
Sorenson had a very good reason for putting his teams undefeated league record on
the line against the Dons: he wants his second-string players to have a chance to face
better opponents, instead of stacking his
lineup with backups against teams at the
bottom of the standings.
Theyre very good players and they need
a chance to play. We know come CCS time,
we need everybody ready to play,
Sorenson said. Its done so these guys (the
second string) can play decent competition.
They have to know theyre accountable.
Theyre being put in because I trust them.

Caada to face De Anza for Nor Cal tennis title


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

When the Caada College womens tennis


team won its Northern California semifinal
playoff match Tuesday over Modesto, the
prospect of traveling to top-seed Fresno City to
play for the Nor Cal championship was an
intriguing one.
The Lady Colts are a fun-loving bunch who
welcomed the idea of taking a road trip. When
No. 4-seed De Anza upset Fresno City on
Tuesday, however, the plan changed. No. 2
Caada will now host the Nor Cal championship showdown with its Coast Conference
rival Saturday at 1 p.m.
We would really love to travel, Caada
freshman Joelle Huelse said. We wanted to

travel. But [playing at home] could be an advantage for us.


Huelse, more than any of her Colts teammates, was hoping to avoid playing De Anza.
Through three matches with the Owls No. 1ranked singles player, sophomore Van Nguyen,
Huelse has suffered her only three losses of the
season. Still, in team competition, Caada
defeated De Anza in both league matchups by a
slim margin of 5-4 in each.
While this marks the first trip to the playoffs in the latest incarnation of the Colts
obviously, as Caada reinstated its womens
tennis program this season after a 15-year
hiatus De Anza is no stranger to the postseason. In fact, the Owls are something of a
Coast Conference dynasty, having won eight
conference titles in school history and even
were the first Northern California womens

team to win a state title in 1998.


And the undefeated Colts know, especially
with their success against the Owls in the regular season, they will have a proverbial target on
their back.
Its good news (De Anza beat Fresno)
because we know we have a chance to win
another time against them, Huelse said. But
its bad news because we know they want to
play better. It will be very good tennis on
Saturday.
De Anza head coach Ron Ward said his team is
more primed for Saturdays showdown. Players
work schedules caused a lack of a cohesive practice routine for the Owls throughout the regular
season. For the past two weeks, however, De
Anza has practiced as a unit every day.
Weve just gotten better, Ward said. Much
better as the season has gone on but especially

Rams trade for


top draft pick
from the Titans
By Greg Beacham
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OXNARD The Rams are tired


of waiting to get a franchise quarterback, and they want to make a
splash in their return to Los
Angeles.
So after waiting a day out of
respect for Kobe Bryant, they
went all in on one of the biggest
trades in NFL draft history.
The Rams acquired the No. 1
overall pick from the Tennessee
Titans, giving up six draft picks
over the next two seasons in
exchange for three choices.
General manager Les Snead and
coach Jeff Fisher left little doubt
the Rams will choose a quarterback with the top pick, hoping to
end years of frustration at the most
important position in football.
This is a fun time, an exciting
time, Fisher said Thursday at the
teams
temporary
Southern
California headquarters. We still
have work to do, (but) were going
to get the right guy, and everybody is going to like him, and

were going to go out and win


some games.
Los Angeles has already held
private workouts with Californias
Jared Goff and North Dakota
States Carson Wentz, generally
considered the top two quarterback
prospects in the field. Although
Snead confirmed the Rams wont
reveal their pick before draft
night, the GM is clearly thrilled
by the chance to add a potential
franchise passer to an all-around
solid roster lacking a centerpiece.
We do have a few players in
mind, Snead said with a grin.
There will be suspense leading all
the way up. ... Theres not enough
(quarterbacks) on the planet to
feed 32 NFL teams, so that is the
challenge.
In the first NFL trade involving
the top overall pick since 2004,
the
Rams
also
acquired
Tennessees choices in the fourth
and sixth rounds. In exchange, the
Titans got the 15th overall pick
from Los Angeles along with two

Caada keeps pace for share of first place


Julius Raval has done it again.
After starting the season in the Caada
bullpen, the sophomore right-hander has
emerged as the ace of the starting rotation.
And with the Colts (9-3 in Coast Pacific,
13-15 overall) entering into play Thursday
tied for first place in the Coast Pacific
Conference, Raval delivered again, leading
Caada to a 6-1 win at home over Monterey
Peninsula (6-6, 15-14).
I dont know how he does it but he just
gets it done, Colts manager Tony Lucca
said.
After surrendering a leadoff home run to
Montereys Jordan Espono to start the
game, Raval went on lockdown to work
seven innings, allowing one run on five
hits. His unblemished record improves to 60.
The leadoff homer was a good omen for
the Colts. Raval has yielded seven dingers
this year, but the sophomore always summons the fire to bounce back, Lucca said.
Every time he has done so, I think its
just kind of a wakeup call, Lucca said.
When it happens it usually means good
things for us.
The Caada bats didnt waste any time putting Raval back in the drivers seat, rallying for two runs in the bottom of the first

inning. Sophomore Dom Giuliani provided


the big swing with a two-run single to give
the Colts a 2-1 lead.
The clutch hit temporarily leapfrogged
Giuliani into the team lead in RBIs with 22
on the year. Last season as a redshirt freshman, he totaled just seven RBIs in part-time
duty.
Obviously theres a maturity factor,
Lucca said. He played a lot last year and got
experience in a lot of tight games.
Confidence goes a long way, and hes found
that. Hes come up in some big situations
for us and has been able to have some success.
Raval locked up with Monterey starting
pitcher Andy Garretson who also entered
with an unbeaten record to keep the score
at 2-1 after six innings.
Then the power of Caada cleanup hitter
Isaac Feldstein showed up in the bottom of
the seventh. The Coast Pacific home run
leader crushed his eighth of the year, a tworun shot putting him back on top for a
team-best 23 RBIs to cushion the Colts
lead. Giuliani followed with a double and
stole third, then scored on an error to give
Caada a 5-1 lead. The Colts added an
unearned run in the eighth.
The Caada bullpen did the rest as Mario
Mazzoni and Nick Moisant closed it out.
Moisant earned his fourth save of the year.
Garretson took the loss for Monterey. His
record falls to 4-1.

Skyline falls to Cabrillo in 13


Skyline sophomore reliever Mike Espino
worked eight shutout innings but it wasnt
enough, as Cabrillo (9-3, 19-11) outlasted
the Trojans for a 4-3 walk-off victory in 13
innings Thursday in Aptos.
Espino departed after the 11th inning,

game-winning run on an RBI single by Zane
Greenburg in the bottom of the 13th. Boes
record falls to 1-1.
The Trojans (5-7, 12-15-1) jumped out to
an early 2-0 lead in support of starting
pitcher Kyle Vallans. But the sophomore
left-hander got tagged for two runs in the
second and another in the third before

Entering into play tied for first place in

Were definitely trying to take it one
game at a time, but I think we all understand
a 4-12 preseason record isnt going to get it
done unless we win the league title, Lucca
said. So every game is our most important
game of the year and we just get after it and
will continue to do so.

Andrew and Zach Ostrow needed a second-set


tiebreaker to beat Sameer Jain and Richard
Tang 6-2, 7-6 (2).
That match was delayed several minutes
with the Bears playing for the match when
an M-A return hit Tang in the right jaw. He
was on the court for several minutes before
finishing out the match.
The top three spots for M-A No.1 and
No. 2 singles, along with the No. 1 doubles
team all cruised to straight set wins. Reed
Fratt, nominally the Bears No. 2 singles
players, moved over one court to the No. 1
spot against Aragon and he overpowered
Landers Ngrichemat 6-1, 6-1, using a punishing baseline forehand and a deft touch at
the net.
It was only the fourth match of the season
for Fratt, whose tennis season was delayed
as the boys basketball team made a run to
the Nor Cal championship game. Fratt was a
back-up forward for the Bears.
But his lack of court time did not show

against Ngrichemat.

Snead and Fisher ran the deal by Rams


owner Stan Kroenke, who approved of both
the bold move and its timing.
He was very, very excited about this
opportunity, Fisher said. Not only for the
potential and the future of his football team,
but in addition the circumstances and the timing.
Tennessee now holds six of this drafts first
76 picks. Robinson, hired in January, is
looking to rebuild a franchise that has gone 527 the past two seasons.
He noted Thursday that the extra picks give
him more flexibility.
I would say this doesnt really knock us out
of moving back up. It doesnt mean were
going to, said Titans GM John Robinson.
It gives us options. Much like a play call
sheet on game days, you want to have your
full play sheet that you can call plays from.
We want to have the same thing with the draft.
We want to have multiple options and multiple plays, if you will, that we can go to to
make this football team better.

Continued from page 12


third-round pick in this draft, along with the
Rams first- and third-round picks in 2017.
Thats an extraordinary commitment of
future resources, but the Rams are weary of
waiting. Theyve missed the playoffs in 11
straight seasons, and havent finished with a
winning record since 2003.
Historically, no one has done this, Fisher
said. Both Tennessee and we realize that no
one has gone from 1 to 15.
The Rams went 7-9 in St. Louis last year
while getting unimpressive quarterback play
from Nick Foles and Case Keenum. With the
franchise entering the crowded Los Angeles
sports market after 21 years away, the opportunity was ideal to add a marquee name to a
team already boasting star running back Todd
Gurley and a talented defense.

Not too bad, Fratt said, summing up his


performance. The rust wasnt as bad as I
was expecting. Ive been playing every day
since basketball ended.
M-As No. 2 singles player, Tim Bertier,
had his hands full with Aragon freshman
Daniel Li the heir apparent to the No. 1
spot next season. But Bertier had a little
more game, winning his match 6-3, 6-4.
The No. 1 doubles team of Chris Iyer and
Theo Novak also won their match in
straight sets.
With the win, the Bears are one win away
from clinching their eighth straight PAL
Bay Division championship, a fact not lost
on them.
We set high hopes every year. We expect
to win league, said Fratt, a four-year varsity player. Its not common to be dominant
in any sport (for that amount of time).

New York becomes last state to
remove ban on pro MMA fights

KYLE TERADA/USA TODAY SPORTS

Golden State coach Steve Kerr was part of the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls team that set the-then
wins record and coached the Warriors to the new record of 73.

Kerr enjoying
Warriors ride
By Janie McCauley
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND Steve Kerr makes one thing


perfectly clear: This special season is not about
him. Far from it. Even if he is so perfectly
entwined with the record-setting Golden State
Warriors and the Chicago Bulls group Kerr
played for 20 years ago that just lost its alltime wins record to the team he now leads.
Kerr will tell you he didnt even coach the
first 43 games and that record 24-0 start, after
all. And he wants Luke Walton to receive the
proper credit for the initial, special stretch of
the season before the Warriors second-year
coach returned Jan. 25 from a leave of absence,
which began the first week of training camp in
October following complications from two
back surgeries.
Kerr jokes how easy he has had it this time
around, with a deep lineup starring reigning
MVP Stephen Curry and triple-double machine
Draymond Green.
We try to pick our spots. Over 82 games, a
coachs voice gets old quickly, so fortunately
Luke coached the first (43), so they didnt hear
mine that often, Kerr said in his usual goodnatured tone. But I think the thing we try to do
is to not really worry about wins and losses. Its
more how were playing.
Yet in recent weeks, Kerr faced constant questions about victories and chasing records
Golden States pursuit of his old 72-10 mark
with the 1995-96 Bulls, to be exact. While Kerr
acknowledged being uneasy about putting so
much effort into a goal other than winning a
championship, he relented because of his players desires.
Last month, he called a team meeting and
asked his players if they wanted to go for the
record or get some rest for the playoffs. When
the majority desired to take a run at 73, Kerr
agreed only with the guarantee that they would
be honest with him about their health and when
they needed a breather.
Hes the coach of the year. Any time you
coach a team to the record we have and the
behind the scenes stuff, hes been orchestrating
everything, guard Klay Thompson said. Hes
our head honcho and all these great ideas
always flow for him. Hes really a players
coach. He knows what were going through.
Kerr played alongside Michael Jordan
Yet another time the two of us are mentioned
in the same breath. Whatever, Kerr quipped
on the record-setting Bulls team, then his
Warriors bested that mark by beating Memphis
in Wednesdays regular-season finale. Golden
State hosts Houston on Saturday to start the
playoffs.
Kerr played all 82 games for Chicago that
season, and did so in four straight years overall
from 1993-94 through 1996-97. He takes
pride in that durability and stability he brought

the Bulls while winning three championships.


He went on to win two more titles as a player
in San Antonio before launching a successful
career off the court.
After a stint as general manager in Phoenix
and then his TV work, Kerr immediately left his
mark on the Bay Area. For all of those who
questioned his ability with no experience,
theres no denying now that hes a top-flight
NBA coach capturing a championship in his
first season and setting the wins record in his
second.
Steve, hes a terrific leader. This is not anything thats new, said New Orleans coach and
former Kerr top assistant Alvin Gentry. Hes
been preparing for this for a long time. He put
in so much work. I didnt have any doubt that he
was going to be a great coach.
All the while during this exhausting, pressure-packed season, the 50-year-old Kerr tried
to remain patient as he recovered from the back
procedures that left him with agonizing
headaches and other frustrating, debilitating
physical issues. He missed practice just
Tuesday for a doctors appointment.
Kerr still cracks jokes, smiles and constantly
thinks of others even if he regularly has to
pull on an ice bag or heating pack an hour
before tipoff because hes still in pain. He
wears a patch on his neck, too.
At team headquarters, Kerr welcomes coaches
from all levels to practice, and recently allowed
10-year-old motivational speaker Ezra Frech
a spot-on shooter from Los Angeles with a
prosthetic leg to give a game-day pep talk.
That open-book approach has made Kerr a
favorite among colleagues everywhere.
Curry appreciates how Kerr is never content.
He wants to coach another champion.
From Day 1 of training camp, he challenged
Golden State to do even more on the offensive
end and the unselfish, pass-happy Warriors
have obliged.
Hes got the same temperament, the same
kind of passion but his IQ for the game and the
adjustments they make day to day are definitely
noticeable, Curry said. The foundation of our
offense is pretty much set but in-game adjustments and plays that they call, theyve definitely gotten smarter and it shows.
Kerr insists he has been forced to adjust, actually.
Its a little tougher to deliver a message this
year than last year for sure, he said. Last year
we hadnt won a championship and I could
always play the card, I know how to win a
championship and you dont. They know how
to do that now and we did it together last year.
Its more of the case of me reminding them of
why its important. It does get tougher as you
go once you have won one and trying to repeat
and trying to do it again and again. The message gets old. Got to find creative ways to
deliver it I guess.

ALBANY, N.Y. New York ended its ban

last hold-out in the nation opening the

Madison Square Garden is the international icon for great sports events, Cuomo

Kansas City schools end games


with other district over slurs
KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Kansas City
School District has canceled all remaining

school district after students from one of the
districts schools reported being taunted
with racial slurs.
The school district announced Thursday
that Lincoln College Preparatory Academy

Lone Jack officials said an investigation
that included interviewing coaches, students, fans and game supervisors found no
evidence of anyone using racial slurs at the
game. The district, about 25 miles southeast
of Kansas City, said it was saddened that
someone felt uncomfortable at an event it
hosted.
In response, Kansas City decided to cancel all sporting events with Lone Jack

Boxing brief
Boxer Adrien Broner indicted
on assault, robbery charges
CINCINNATI Boxer Adrien Broner was indicted
Thursday on assault and robbery charges, the next step in
prosecutors case against the former WBA super lightweight
champion.
The charges arise from a lawsuit filed by a man who accuses Broner of pointing a handgun at him during a dispute over
gambling in January and knocking him unconscious.
Broner was indicted on an aggravated robbery charge, a
first-degree felony that carries a maximum sentence of three
to 10 years. He also was indicted on second-degree charges
of felonious assault and robbery, which carry sentences of
two to eight years. Bond was set at $100,000. No date has
been set for a pretrial hearing.
The 26-year-old boxer also was jailed in Cincinnati this
month for violating probation in an unrelated reckless driving case.

Joelle Huelse is Caadas No. 1 singles player and part of the No. 1 doubles team as well. Huelse will be key to the
top-seeded Colts success when they face No. 4 De Anza in the Nor Cal championship match Saturday in Redwood City.

COLTS
Continued from page 12
Huelse and Barcelata trailed in both to Nguyen and Russianborn sophomore Gorshinen Polina. The first time around
Huelse and Barcelata overcame a 6-2 deficit. In the second
match they came back from 6-4.
We squeaked by De Anzas No. 1 doubles twice,
Velasquez said.
Huelse isnt about to concede the No. 1 singles match
though. She did take Nguyen a native of Vietnam to
three sets in two of their matches, once as recently as last
week when the two squared off for the Nor Cal individual
title, which Nguyen captured.
The problem was we have the same strategy, Huelse
said. She is the same player as me. She hits really hard
balls from the baseline.
Ward, however, said his sophomore is simply a more

advanced player. Its tough to argue, seeing as Nguyen only


lost one match this season, that being to Cabrillos No. 1,
with whom Nguyen split the season series.
Van is, not to sound too confident, overall she does
everything a little bit better, Ward said. If someone dominates someone, shes beat her [three times] shes beat
her thoroughly routinely.
Regardless of Saturdays team outcome, Huelse and
Barcelata have already punched their tickets to the state
championships both in singles and doubles play for
Huelse, and Barcelata as Huelses doubles partner starting next Wednesday in Ojai. The team championship will
be held April 20, with the individual and doubles championships April 21-24.
But this fun-loving, first-year Caada team is determined
to keep its magical inaugural season going. Huelse said it
wont be the same competing in the individual championships if the team isnt there to compete as well.
Thats why were working hard to win Nor Cals, so we
can go as a team, Velasquez said.

bruised right foot, but then left the game in the bottom of the
seventh as a precaution.
He wasnt full strength so I had to pull him out, manager
Bruce Bochy said about Posey. I didnt want to have any setbacks.
All that, combined with Cains rocky outing, made for a
disappointing day for San Francisco.
Cain retired 12 of the first 13 batters he faced and was in a
battle with Colorado starter Jorge De La Rosa through three
innings. The Giants had the first big scoring opportunity
when De La Rosas bases-loaded wild pitch put them ahead in
the fourth, but two defensive gems by third baseman Nolan
Arenado and another by first baseman Mark Reynolds prevented more runs.
Colorado then scored nine runs in the fifth, when Gerardo
Parra led off with his first homer for the Rockies. Reynolds
had two doubles, the second a three-run drive to center, and
Arenado had a two-run double off the wall in left.
I cant really explain what happened, Cain said. ... It
got out of hand and they ended up putting a big number on
us.
Brandon Belt homered for the second straight game for the
Giants.
De La Rosa helped himself when he blooped a two-run single into right for a 3-1 lead.
Their pitcher got a big hit for him and we just couldnt
stop the inning, Bochy said.
San Francisco chased De La Rosa in a three-run seventh and
loaded the bases against Justin Miller. Posey had a chance to
make it a one-run game with a home run but grounded out.
Belts two-run homer in the eighth awarded after a video
review made it 9-6, but Carlos Gonzalez answered with a
two-run double in the bottom half.

Family, Cal reach


settlement deal
in death of player
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BERKELEY The family of a


University of California, Berkeley,
football player who died after a team
drill in 2014 has settled a wrongful
death lawsuit with the school system
for $4.75 million, officials said
Thursday.
The parents of 21-year-old Ted Agu
sued, saying their son shouldnt have
been in the strenuous
workout
because he carried
sickle cell trait, a
blood abnormality that experts
believe can lead
to death under
extreme
exertion.
Ted Agu
Agu died shortly after an offseason conditioning workout outside
Memorial Stadium.
The university has acknowledged
liability for the death of the defensive
lineman and pre-med student, the San
Francisco Chronicle reported.
UC attorneys said negligence by
Cal officials was a substantial factor
in leading to Agus death and that no
other person or entity, including Agu
himself, was responsible, court
papers show.
The settlement also guarantees
health and safety reforms for Cal athletics. It brings months of negotiations and litigation to a close.
Teammates said they were directed
to run up and down a steep asphalt hill
10 times while holding a rope together and that they had never before done
the drill. They testified that Agu was
showing visible difficulty in completing the drill, falling to his knees
several times before collapsing into a
fetal position halfway up the hill on
the last lap.
With the settlement, coaches will
not be able to use high-risk physical
activity as punishment, and superiors will review workout and conditioning plans. Coaches and team doctors will also increase their education
of sickle cell trait and the medical
complications that can accompany it.
Under the deal Cal must only hold
workouts when the team staffers have
a direct line of sight to athletes.

from kindergarten through 12th-grade
statewide.
In reversing that decision, the appellate
panel said the trial highlighted problems
with tenure and layoff statutes and showed
the deleterious impact of staffing decision on poor and minority students. But it
said state law wasnt to blame.
Some principals rid their schools of
highly ineffective teachers by transferring
them to other schools, often to low-income
schools, Boren wrote. This phenomenon
is extremely troubling and should not be
allowed to occur, but it does not inevitably
flow from the challenged statutes.

overpass, and safely take down the old
structure.
Opening the new overpass is a milestone
for the three-phase project, expected to be
completed near the end of the year.
The reopened, wider overpass offers more
lanes, reconfigured ramp connections, new
metering lights and the adjacent intersection at Broadway and Rollins Road has been
redesigned, along with other improvements.
The transition was not without a few
kinks though, said Kevranian, as initially

LOCAL
A lawyer for the plaintiffs said they were
disappointed, but called it a temporary
setback and expected to appeal to the
California Supreme Court.
The Court of Appeals decision mistakenly blames local school districts for the
egregious constitutional violations students are suffering each and every day,
attorney Theodore Boutrous Jr. said in a
written statement. The irrational, arbitrary, and abominable laws at issue in this
case shackle school districts and impose
severe and irreparable harm on students.
The closely watched case highlighted
tensions between teacher unions, school
leaders, lawmakers and well-funded education reform groups over whether policies
like tenure and firing teachers with the
least seniority keep ineffective instructors
in the classroom, particularly in already
low-performing schools.
some traffic lane markings were not aligned
properly through intersections, which
caused confusion for drivers.
The issue was compounded by insufficient
signage, said Kevranian, as more notifications still need to be posted to inform drivers how to navigate the newly configured
interchange.
But he credited the responsiveness of
Caltrans officials in promptly addressing
many of the necessary fixes to make the
project move ahead as smoothly as possible.
They have been very cooperative, said
Kevranian, of Caltrans officials. We are
very pleased with the outcome, and they
have been listening to what we have to
say.

Teachers have long argued that tenure
protects them from being fired on a whim,
preserves academic freedom and helps
attract talented teachers to a profession
that doesnt pay well.
Attorney Michael Rubin, who defended
teachers unions in the case, said the courts
decision was huge.
It puts to rest we believe forever
the constitutional attacks on job security
for teachers, Rubin said.
The Vergara v. State of California lawsuit, including Beatriz Vergara among the
public school student plaintiffs, was
backed by Students Matter, a nonprofit
Measure A, the countys half-cent sales
tax, financed about $51 million of the project, the state contributed roughly $23 million, $5 million came from the city and $3
million was offered by the federal government.
Roughly 225,000 cars commute daily
across the overpass which was built in
1947, making it the oldest along the
Peninsula. The structure was rebuilt in
1971, and seismically renovated roughly a
decade later.
Kevranian said since the new overpass
was opened, patrons who once avoided
Broadway due to the traffic congestion generated by the ongoing construction have
returned to shopping along the commercial
district.
He said ultimately he believed the new

group founded by Silicon Valley entrepreneur David Welch.


Attorneys for the state and teachers
unions had argued that the case was never
about helping students and should be overturned because no evidence was presented
showing the disputed statutes were the
cause of educational inequalities.
The case has inspired others like it.
After the trial court ruling in Vergara, a
suit was filed in New York contending that
teacher tenure and layoffs by seniority
deprive students of a sound, basic education as guaranteed under the state constitution. Lawyers for New Yorks teachers
union have asked for the case to be dismissed.
Before the ruling came down Thursday, a
similar lawsuit was filed in Minnesota by a
group of parents and a national education
reform group.
interchange could serve as a boon for local
businesses.
Some of our regular customers who come
from out of the area are coming back after
the interchange opened, he said. They are
happy about it. Our local customers are
excited that it is open too.
As the project nears completion and the
commercial district becomes more accessible, Kevranian said he expects more businesses to show interest in opening on
Broadway, especially as the cost of doing
business along Burlingame Avenue continues to rise with many facing substantial rent
hikes.
You are going to see more businesses
coming to Broadway once this is done, he
said.

Favreaus The Jungle Book


a dazzling visual experience
By Lindsey Bahr
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

You can practically feel the


beating heart of the jungle in
Jon Favreaus stunning adaptation of The Jungle Book,
which is easily the most visually dazzling movie to hit theaters this year. Like Avatar
before it, this CG and live
action
interpretation
of
Rudyard Kiplings classic tale

of the boy raised by wolves


feels like a momentous occasion in the technical advancements of big budget cinema.
From the thrill of a distant
waterfall to the terror of a
mudslide or stampeding buffalo, Favreau and his visual
effects maestros have created
artificial living things that
truly look and feel real.
Even the animals ability to
communicate in English

seems as natural as their


breathing and emoting. They
have not been sanitized to be
cute or less threatening either
even the tender mama wolf
Raksha (Lupita Nyongo).
They still look like wild animals and, for the most part, act
like wild animals, too. At first,
this actually makes their close
interactions with the human
boy Mowgli (newcomer Neel
Sethi) even more disarming.

Eventually your nerves calm


and you submit to the magic
of this world.
The story follows the same
beats as Disneys animated
feature from 1967, but
Favreau and his team made
sure to up the intensity a few
notches the hyperrealism
of the animals necessitates it.
The tension created by the fact
that they all have claws and

Elizabeth Lee with the Rose Bird Memorial
Award at the 16th Annual Northern
California Judicial Reception held at the
historic Redwood City Courthouse on April

honors judges for judicial excellence, public service and inspiration to women
lawyers. California Women Lawyers selected Judge Lee as exemplifying the qualities
of compassion and courage and working to
improve the legal process and profession.
Judge Lee is not only a role model to female
attorneys and judges, but also an asset to
the community due to her outstanding service. The Women Lawyers Section of the San
Mateo County Bar Association, first named
the Women in Law Committee, was established in 1986 to support women in the
legal profession and to promote the legal
interests of women in society. The Women

Redwood Symphony takes on this centurys music


By David Bratman
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

The Redwood Symphony boldly


goes where other community orchestras, and even some professional
ones, have not yet trod.
On Saturday evening, April 16, at
Caada College in Redwood City,
Music Director Eric Kujawsky leads
the orchestra in two works of not 20th
but 21st century music. Sixteen years
into this century, its about time for
more concerts like this.
Renowned local composer Henry
Mollicone has provided a world premiere: after a long career in opera and
many kinds of music, he found himself
writing his first-ever concerto a
very enjoyable experience, he says
and offered it to Redwood to perform. The solo is for violin, and
Alexander Eisenberg will be playing
the part.
Its a wonderful, accessible work,
Kujawsky said, a little reminiscent of
19th century display pieces, very
showy for the soloist, and very tender
as well.
Theres two fast movements, a
tarantella and a toccata, and two slow
tender ones, so there will be plenty of
opportunity
for both
molds.
Mollicone will discuss the concerto in
a pre-concert talk.
Thats not all. Mason Bates, 39, is a
composer, DJ and electronics enthusiast whos well-known locally for his
work with the San Francisco
Symphony and the Cabrillo Festival.
His work will be introduced to
Redwood audience in the form of his
big four-movement techno-symphony
Alternative Energy. Composed just
five years ago, its an exciting, energetic but cool-toned piece full of wellintegrated electronic sounds. These
will be played by a laptop soloist connected with a multi-speaker sound system. Alternative Energy has a science-fictional program, taking the
listener through human civilization
from the 19th century into an imagined far future rain forest on a warmer
planet.
Besides Mollicones concerto,

A Deadpool sequel was no big surprise to anyone.

Eric Kujawsky, left, and composer Mason Bates at a rehearsal for the program.
Eisenberg will be playing a showpiece fantasia on themes from Bizets
opera Carmen, compiled by mid20th century film composer Franz
Waxman. The concert will begin with
assistant conductor Kristin Link leading the Roman Carnival Overture by
the composer whos the founding
father of now two centuries of colorful
orchestration, Hector Berlioz.
Redwood Symphony is going on to
perform a hearty program of
Beethoven and Shostakovich May 28,
and to conclude its season July 30
with Gustav Mahlers massive choral
Symphony of a Thousand. Next season will begin with a semi-staged version of the Weill-Brecht satirical
Weimar-era opera Rise and Fall of the
City of Mahagonny Sept. 24. Details
are at redwoodsymphony.org.
Redwoods concert is not the only
interesting one coming up locally
soon. Sunday evening, April 17, the
Harlem String Quartet will be heard at
Kohl Mansion in Burlingame, playing a mixed classical-jazz program
running
from Beethoven
and
Mendelssohn to Dizzy Gillespie and
The Girl from Ipanema. Details at
musicatkohl.org.
On April 23 in San Mateo and April
24 in Menlo Park, the Ragazzi Boys
Chorus, along with its alumni chorale
Ragazzi Continuo, will be singing the

warmest and gentlest requiem ever


composed, the one by French composer Gabriel Faur, plus a selection
of songs celebrating nature. Details at
ragazzi.org.
The San Francisco Chamber
Orchestra is presenting a concert juxtaposing Beethovens dancelike
Seventh Symphony and Stravinskys
pungent Suite No. 1 with a newly commissioned work by the always-imaginative East Bay avant cabaret artist
Amy X Neuburg. SFCO concerts are
free of charge and first come, first
served. This concert will be played on
Saturday, April 30, at the First United
Methodist Church in Palo Alto, as
well as in San Francisco on Friday and
in Oakland on Sunday. Details at thesfco.org.
To look a little further ahead, tickets
will go on sale next week for the annual Music@Menlo festival in Atherton.
This years festival will run from July
15 to Aug. 6, and the theme is
Russian Reflections. Chamber
music by Russian composers from
Glinka, through Tchaikovsky and
Rachmaninoff, to Shostakovich will
be mixed on programs with Western
pieces by Mozart, Brahms, Faur, and
others, in a three-week demonstration
of how Russian music fits into the
greater context of musical achievement. Details at musicatmenlo.org.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAS VEGAS 20th Century Fox had its eyes on the future
Thursday at CinemaCon, where it was revealed that not only
was a Deadpool sequel in the works with star Ryan
Reynolds and director Tim Miller, but that James Cameron
would be making a fourth Avatar sequel.
Cameron had previously announced plans to make three
follow-ups to his visionary box office juggernaut, but said
Thursday that there was just too much material for only three
movies. The first of the four will roll out in 2018 with the
subsequent films coming in 2020, 2022, and 2023.
The confirmation of a Deadpool sequel, however, was no
big surprise to anyone. The first film came out earlier this
year and was a massive hit for the studio, grossing over $757
million worldwide on a production budget of only $58 million.
Fox always puts on a big show at the annual convention of
theater owners and this year kicked off the mornings proceedings with Vanilla Ice performing Ice Age, Baby a riff
on his 26-year-old hit in promotion of the studios Ice Age:
Collision, out this summer.
The studio also rolled out new trailers for X-Men:
Apocalypse, focusing heavily on Jennifer Lawrences character Raven, and Independence Day: Resurgence.

Maslany likes playing multiple characters


By Alicia Rancilio
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Think youre busy?


Tatiana Maslany can relate. Shes
played 11 characters to date on her
BBC America series, Orphan Black.
The crazy part? She can recall an earlier time when she was juggling just as
much.
There was a time in Toronto like 10
years ago where I did three jobs at the
same time, she said in a recent interview. I was filming this improvised
film all day. That night I did a night
shoot on a TV series and after an hours
sleep went straight to the improv film,
and I was doing a miniseries at the
same time.
I love working. Ive learned to not
do that much. But Orphan Black is no
different, but for four months.
Orphan Black, now in its fourth
season on BBC America (Thursdays at
10 p.m. EDT), is about a dozen or so
women, played by Maslany, who are
clones. Each multiple has her own personality, physicality and accent. One
is a housewife, another is a scientist
(and so on). The series follows Sarah,
who is trying to get to the bottom of
the conspiracy that creates the clones.
Jordan Gavaris, who plays Felix,
Sarahs adopted brother, says watching
Maslany in between takes is as interesting as when the cameras are rolling.
Theres no drama with her. She
takes notes so graciously, just as if
like her personal trainer were to say,
OK, now give me 25 sets of this. OK,
great, OK. Theres no part of her thats
defensive. Shes totally artistic all the

JUNGLE
Continued from page 19
teeth and instinct to contend with is
always there.
Youre already on edge by the time
the tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba, in a
truly stunning vocal performance
thats both terrifying and relatable)
enters the picture. He adamantly
believes that humans should not be
living among them and is prepared to
use whatever intimidation tactics are
necessary to rid their world of Mowgli.
This sends the young boy on a journey
to the human village with the stoic
panther Bagheera (Ben Kingsley).
Anyone with the vaguest memory of
The Jungle Book will remember the
characters the boy encounters on the
way the snake Kaa (Scarlett
Johansson), the bear Baloo (Bill
Murray) and the orangutan King Louie
(Christopher Walken).
Although it is somewhat distracting

Tatiana Maslany has played more than 10 characters on Orphan Black.


time, he said.
Maslany, 30, is quick to credit her
acting double, Kathryn Alexandre,
with helping her pull off scenes with
multiple clones. Together they block
out movements to make it work.
Shes just so incredible. She shows
up every day having prepared the scene
to such a detailed degree, and she
always asks me questions while were
rehearsing or while were shooting
about intention or something that Ive
never kind of looked at. ... Weve got a
really good collaborative relationship, Maslany said.
For a show with such technical work,
Kristian Bruun, who plays straightlaced husband, Donnie, to his uptight
(clone) wife, Alison, says theres a lot
of room for improvisation.
They let us improv quite a bit. Tat

and I like to improvise up until we say


action. We never quite know what
theyre gonna keep or use. Its always
a fun day for us. I always love to see
what ends up making it on scene.
Orphan Black hasnt been renewed
yet for a fifth season, but Maslanys
full schedule continues. Shes about to
begin production on a film opposite
Jake Gyllenhaal.
Maslany says shes dedicated to finding a work-life balance.
The first season (of Orphan
Black) was really bad. I lost contact
with every person in my life and that
was not good. Ive sort of learned to
not do that and still be a part of the
world. You cant, I need that balance. I
need to see people and be social and be
not social and not always be going,
going, going.

to have such famous voices overwhelming every scene, each does a


fine job especially Murray, who
brings a much-needed comedic lightness to the story with his affably conniving Baloo in the second act.
Sethi is energetic and enthusiastic as
Mowgli an adventurous kid whos as
unfazed by a handful of bee stings as he
is a gargantuan snake. But for all the
attention to detail, theres an unnatural
modernity to the dialogue hes given
that can be trying at times. For the
most part he blends in as well as the
sole human among wild CG animals
could possibly be expected to.
On the subject of things seeming out
of place, there are also two songs from
the 1967 film that are integrated into
the story The Bear Necessities and
I Wanna Be Like You. (Trust In Me
plays over the credits).
One works, and one really doesnt.
Murray makes The Bear Necessities
fit into his laid back existence as he
hums and sings the song with Mowgli
as they float down a serene river. I

Wanna Be Like You, however, is awkward and clumsy a ditty of a song


that comes out of nowhere and sucks
the air out of the crucial climax. It
makes no sense in the context of this
world that Walkens mob boss ape
would just break into song. And, if he
did, it definitely wouldnt be this
song.
Indeed, much of the third act feels
more like a check list than plot
advancement, and the emotional arc
neither lives up to its source material
nor the beauty of the visuals. Still, it
is one of the stronger of Disneys liveaction adaptations and executed with
such sincerity and technical prowess
and inspiring ingenuity that its more
promising than anything else a true
family-friendly adventure thats smart
and often thrilling.
The Jungle Book, a Walt Disney
Pictures release, is rated PG by the
Motion Picture Association of America
for some sequences of scary action
and peril. Running time: 105 minutes. Three stars out of four.

wow!
Surprise! Newspapers are not dead. Theyre not
dying. Theyre not going anywhere for a long, long
time. So-called experts have been predicting the
death of print newspapers for decades.
A few papers have bit the dust, but not for lack of
readers or advertisers. Many newspapers are
increasing readership.
In 2012, 62 percent of adults in the United States read
a newspaper each week. Its 67 percent when you
include online newspapers.*

GRINDY
Continued from page 1

acting general manager after longtime general manager Peter Grenell retired but
retreated to his job as harbormaster due to
Brennans attempt to secure his termination, according to a claim filed with the
harbor district last week.
In his claim, however, Grindy states he
was recruited from his old job in Seattle
under the assumption he would one day be
elevated to the general managers position.
Its unfortunate if he felt promises were
made, Brennan said.
Brennan told the Daily Journal Thursday
she was not surprised by Grindys claim
because his attorneys sent a demand letter
to the district a month ago.
Grindy was replaced by Glen Lazof on an
interim basis who within just days of
accepting the position reported that
Brennan promised to make his life a living
hell.
The district settled a harassment claim
last year filed by former finance director
Debra Galarza for $295,000. Brennan had
allegedly questioned Galarzas qualifications to do her job at a public meeting.
Grindy is seeking unspecified damages
for loss of the benefit of employment with
district, lost and future wages and benefits,
emotional distress, damage to his future
employment opportunities and damage to
his professional reputation, according to
the complaint.
His attorneys are the same who represented Galarza, Brennan said.
Brennan was also against approving
Galarzas settlement.
Its an invitation that the district will
hand out settlements for unsubstantiated
claims, Brennan said.
Grindy sought psychological counseling
in February 2015 and took two weeks off in
March, 2015 for depression and anxiety,
according to the claim.
The claim states Brennan and her
cronies used the website Fix Our
Harbors to publish accusations that district staff engaged in overpayment, lavish
compensation, sweetheart deals dubious
purchases and leases, professional incompetence and sleaze factors.
Grindy alleges in the claim that Brennan
blamed him for a sewer line breakage and
issues with repairing it.
Brennan said that incident didnt help the
twos relationship.
We got off on the wrong foot in the very
beginning, she said.
The two apparently could not agree on
how best to address the sewer line breakage.
Brennan had butted heads with management over a variety of issues including
dredging at Pillar Point boat ramp and the
cancellation of a fisher buyer hoist at
Johnson Pier that the board approved.
Brennan had also allegedly reviewed
bills and claims for legal costs relating to
her in an effort to ascertain which staff
memb ers h ad fi l ed h aras s men t cl ai ms
against her, a violation of board policy,

according to the claim.


Grindy scored well in performance evaluations in 2013 and 2014 and was named the
2014 Harbor Master of the Year award from
the California Association of Harbor
Masters and Port Captains.
But in January 2015, after he replaced
Grenell, Grindy wrote a memo to the board
outlining his expectations and what the
proper conduct of commissioners should
be.
The soon to be and now board president
ignores policy, practice and roles of staff
and board membership. She assumes as
president she is in charge of district without
full board approval or actions, the memo
said.
According to the complaint, the district
fell into dysfunction because Brennan
threatened upper management, staff and
board members, cancelled previously
approved projects, breached contractor
agreements and created needless controversy about leases and projects. She caused an
exodus of trained staff and provoked several
claims and lawsuits against the district, the
claim stated.
Grindy let his human resources manager
know that he felt Brennan bullied him for
six weeks at the end of 2014 into January
2015.
Sabrina has been beyond rude to me, on
so many occasions, overloading me with
hundreds of emails in the past weeks to
respond, calling after business hours constantly, with emails that are expected to be
answered by the morning, according to the
complaint.
The extraordinary stress Brennan caused
Grindy compelled him to seek psychological counseling, according to the complaint.
The human resources manager, Marietta
Harris, also resigned from the district last
year as did accounting technician Abigail
Dometita, who allegedly quit over
Brennans constant complaints about the
Oyster Point Marina office and her relentless defamatory accusations about lost or
stolen checks, according to the complaint.
Grindy would not comment on the case
Thursday per his attorneys advice but did
write in an email that the document speaks
for itself.
Grindy is currently the harbormaster in
San Francisco County allegedly making
less money than he made in San Mateo
County.
The district has 60 days to respond to
Grindys claim.
The Harbor District owns and operates
Pillar Point Harbor on the coast and operates Oyster Point Marina/Park in South San
Francisco under a joint powers agreement.
Both the San Mateo County Civil Grand
Jury and Local Agency Formation
Commission have repeatedly called for the
Harbor District to be dissolved and taken
over by another agency such as San Mateo
County.

FESTIVAL

Francis Beach will come across a variety of


artists, dancers as well as musicians who
want to share their passion for art and the
coast.
Its going to be a real showcase of some
of the artists, Boutell said, noting the
artists will be uniquely set up along the trail
as well as clustered near the main event at
Francis Beach.
While theres plenty to engage adults,
overall the event serves as a vital opportunity to educate youth about the importance
of preserving the coast and instilling a lasting appreciation for nature, Boutell said.
You have to know something and love it
in order to protect it, Boutell said. And the
generations to come are going to have to do
that. So I think its really important to help
them.

benefit the park and the food chain and food
web as far as plants and animals and birds
that all thrive within the state park. But its
also an opportunity to learn about plants
and how they might benefit from them in
their own garden, Lyons said.
The annual event organized with the help
of the nonprofit Coastside State Parks
Association serves as a fundraiser for
preservation efforts along the coast by providing support to the wildflower nursery,
Boutell said.
This year is also a great chance for people
to give back by participating in Earth Day
restoration activities. Those interested in
volunteering for a project at Dunes Beach
are asked to show around 8:30 a.m. to register and help clear non-native species and
restore habitat.
Afterwards, visitors who take a stroll
along the coastal trail to the neighboring

Earth Day activ ities run 8:30 a.m. to 1


p.m. April 16 at Dunes Beach, park ing is
free for v olunteers. The Coastal Wildflower
Festiv al runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 16 at
Francis Beach, park ing is $10. Visit

RINK
Continued from page 1
and urged the council to deny SPIs $3 million offer to the city.
Some commissioners even questioned if
the citys hired economic consultant,
Economic & Planning Systems, conducted
an accurate study and whether San Mateo
could be entitled to more than SPIs offer.
Precedent set by state case law prohibits
the city from explicitly requiring SPI to pay
for the actual cost of constructing a new
rink, instead the consultant and SPI looked
at the difference in cost to lease retail versus
recreational space.
Ice rink supporters have estimated it could
cost between $10 million and $15 million
to replace the rink, but Hogan noted thats
not what can be requested.
There will be those that say [$3 million]
is not enough to build a new ice rink, and the
answer is yes. The courts never intended that
to be the case, Hogan said.
In exchange for the multi-million dollar
payment, SPI is asking to remove references to the rink in the master plan thats
been credited with allowing the shopping
center to be redeveloped. The plan forbids
the rink from being demolished without
council approval, but does not technically
require it be operational a sticking point
thats proved problematic for those who
contend the rink has sat empty for years
when it could have been operational.
Instead, SPI seeks to modify the existing
building to make room for a large retail tenant it was rumored that a Nordstrom Rack
was a contender that could generate substantially more tax revenue for the city.
But the councils vote in no way guaran-

tees the ice rink will reopen. If rejected, SPI


has indicated it will not look to keep the
rink, but may instead seek an alternate recreational use which must be approved by
the Planning Commission.
According to the plan, any alternative
recreational facility proposed on the site of
the existing ice rink building shall be of
similar size, shall serve a variety of ages
and both sexes and shall be designed for
active sports recreation.
Determining the next steps now lies in
the hands of the council and whether it opts
to amend the sites zoning restrictions
on which only four members will be voting.
Freschet announced she would recuse herself after two rink supporters questioned
whether she had a conflict of interest.
Freschet was working at Notre Dame de
Namur University where her role included
fundraising, when SPIs Dennis Wong made
donations to the Belmont private school.
Freschet contended her former 23-year
career would not have influenced her decision but opted to step down as even the perception of a conflict of interest was troubling.
Hogan said while not knowing what to
expect at Mondays meeting, he acknowledged the proposal has drawn immense public interest and critique.
I think the city has gone well above and
beyond what you would normally see for a
project like this, Hogan said, adding they
made sure everyone has access to the information, access to the decision makers and
were not keeping secrets from anybody.
Because its such a contentious issue, as
staff our role is really to make sure everybody knows whats going on.
The meeting begins 7 p.m. at City Hall
330 W. 20th Av e., San Mateo.
