Bernabe Lactawen, also known
as Champ or Batman, is being
remembered for his impact on the
San Bruno community after he was
stuck and killed by a car while
crossing the street Sunday, July 6.
Lactawen, 57, was known for
frequently waving at passersby
and there has been an outpouring
of support for his family follow-
ing the death. Friday night, Wave
and Walk for Bernabe ... San
Brunos Champion through San
Bruno was held to honor Lactawen
by getting a group together to
walk and wave at every single per-
son the group
passed. There
were two walk
routes in San
Bruno, a shorter
one for those
who cant walk
far and a longer
one for those
that can, stop-
ping at
L a c t a w e n s
house to say a prayer. Following
that, the group went to BJs for a
reception, followed by karaoke at
Newells Cocktail Lounge.
Victoria Sciacqua, who organ-
ized the walk, knew him through
walking her kids to school. He
would wave at them every morning
as they walked on Oak Avenue. The
family got to know him in passing
for about 14 years.
He just had a way of making
you smile even if you were having
the worst day ever, she said. He
smiled at you, he waved at you, he
called you his friend. He made a lot
people happy just by being him-
Sciacqua heard the news of his
passing Sunday night.
It upset us all, she said. It just
came to me the next day: maybe as
a family we should wave at people
up and down El Camino. I thought

Street parking on San Carlos
main gateway is at the center of
the latest struggle between of-
cials looking to ease trafc con-
gestion and eastside residents who
feel the neighborhood yet again is
feeling the brunt of city changes.
The San Carlos City Council is
being asked tonight to finalize
parking restrictions on Holly
Street from Industrial Road to Old
County Road which will ban on-
street vehicles 7 am. to 6 p.m.
Monday through Friday in both
directions so that two lanes of traf-
c can pass through the corridor.
But those who live on or near
Holly Street say the city needs to
look at other long-term options
rst and make gradual changes as
needed rather than keep residents

Construction is slated to begin
Aug. 11 to upgrade Burlingames
main Primrose Road library with
the city hiring a construction rm
to carry out the work.
The $3.5 million project will
modify the downtown branchs
interior to meet the needs of mod-
ern patrons by providing exible
space for collaboration, creativi-
ty and exploration. The City
Council awarded a $1.74 million
construction contract to Zolman
Construction and Development to
create the new tech and media lab
with updated computers and LCD
screens, video conferencing capa-
bilities, four group study rooms,
new conference room that ts 20
people, expanded teen area, a
Burlingame Library Foundation
bookstore and caf, along with
new carpeting. Ofcials are excit-
ed for the changes, which are tar-
geted to be completed in April
I think our library is one of
the intangible jewels of
Burlingame, said Mayor
Michael Brownrigg. Its become
a community center. The overall
modernization will provide a lot
more workspace. It will be more
accessible and amenable. This
extensive, but modest upgrade
will allow a lot more useable
space and technology.
The library was built at its cur-
rent downtown location in 1930.
The last time it was reconstructed
was in 1995. The technology in
1995 was very different from the
technology we have today, said
City Librarian Patricia Harding. A
new automated materials han-
dling, or check-in, system, simi-
lar to a one at the San Mateo
Public Library, will help reduce
Burlingame preps for main library construction

Driver of stalled pickup
finds slithering surprise
SANTA FE, N.M. When a
womans pickup stalled on a street in
Santa Fe, New Mexico, local chef
Jackson Ault stopped to lend a hand.
Ault and the driver both ended up
with a surprise Thursday when Ault
popped the hood and found a brown
and yellow python slithering across
the engine block.
A police lieutenant responded to a
call for help. He retrieved the 20-
pound snake.
The python was taken to the Santa Fe
Animal Shelter, where spokesman Ben
Swan says the reptile has minor
injuries but otherwise is in good shape.
Police say the snake likely crawled
into the pickup at the motorists home
several blocks from where the vehicle
stalled. And Ault says he thinks the
truck stalled because the snake dis-
lodged an electrical wire.
Authorities say the owner hasnt
turned up yet.
Divers, snorkelers
converge for undersea concert
BIG PINE KEY, Fla. Nearly 500
divers and snorkelers submerged in the
Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary on Saturday for a concert
beneath the sea broadcast by a local
radio station.
The 30th annual Lower Keys
Underwater Music Festival, held at
Looe Key Reef along the continental
United States only living coral barri-
er reef, featured four hours of commer-
cial-free music piped below the surface
via a series of underwater speakers.
We started this as an arts and cultur-
al event 30 years ago (and) thought it
would be a one-time thing, said event
co-founder and coordinator Bill
Becker. Its the only place we know of
where music is put underwater for
divers, snorkelers and the marine life.
The water-themed playlist included
such tunes as the Beatles Octopuss
Garden and the themes from Disneys
The Little Mermaid and televisions
classic Flipper. Participants described
the music as clear and ethereal, with
underwater visibility of about 50 feet.
Snorkeler Uli Clef from Munich,
Germany, said he was particularly
impressed with the vivid colors and
tropical sh he saw underwater.
Ive seen colors from red to blue to
white, and even the shades of the sun
coming from the water line, Clef said
when he surfaced. All these colorful
shes - thats perfect.
Some divers were costumed and pre-
tended to play quirky metal instru-
ments sculpted by Florida Keys artist
August Powers. As well as offering an
unusual experience for dive and snorkel
enthusiasts, the broadcast included
diver awareness announcements pro-
moting coral reef protection.
We try to get divers to be aware of
their impact on the coral reef so that
they lessen that impact and this reef
can be here for generations to come,
said Becker.
The event was staged by radio sta-
tion WWUS in partnership with the
Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce.
Meat mess on upstate
New York road stinks up cars
owners are raising a stink after driving
a road littered with meat in upstate New
Dozens of chunks of meat were on
the road in front of a mall Thursday in
Queensbury, The Post-Star of Glens
Falls said Saturday in reporting on the
meat mystery in the town about 60
miles north of Albany.
Police believe meat fell off a truck
that might have been heading from a
farm or slaughterhouse to a rendering
plant, but no one has come forward to
claim it.
The state Department of
Transportation cleaned the meat up,
but driver James Teele and other
motorists were still dealing with the
aftermath Friday.
Teele said he immediately took his
SUV to a car wash after driving
through the mess en route home
Thursday, but it was too late. He told
the Post-Star: My vehicle still smells
like rotting meat and ies are swarm-
ing around it.

Potty training
A porta potty was tipped over on the
1800 block of Ashton Avenue in
Burlingame before 11:46 p.m. Monday,
July 7.
ailroad trains were crude mon-
sters in the beginning. It would
need a lot of refinement before
they became practical and useful.
Bellowing smoke trailed the engine and
covered the air wherever they were travel-
The first train in the Eastern United
States was used to haul granite on a three-
mile track. Later trains were trailed by a
makeshift passenger car made up of a
platform with wooden seats that were
very uncomfortable. Later, these passen-
ger cars were enclosed but the wooden
seats were retained, a potbelly coal/wood
stove was placed in the middle of the car
for heat and thats about all that was
offered. If you were going to make an
extensive trip, you brought your own
bedding, food and maybe a pot for
relieving ones body. Probably the back
car was used to throw the contents of the
pot out the back as the train moved. After
the transcontinental railway was com-
pleted from the East to California, the
railroad advertised land and opportunity
in the West to the immigrants streaming
into the United States. Their ordeal had to
be awful. Hot summers and cold winters
greeted them as well as hard-riding cars
that had no springs to soften the bumps.
George Mortimer Pullman (March 3,
1831-Oct. 19, 1897), born in New York,
moved to Chicago after learning the trade
of moving houses with his father. He
moved houses in Chicago for a while and,
around 1864, he designed a sleeping car
based on the packet boats that he had
traveled on on the Erie Canal. These
Pullman Sleeper cars he called a palace
car. They cost five times the price of the
regular car but he got a boost in sales and
recognition (advertising) when he carried
President Abraham Lincolns body from
Washington, D. C. to Springfield,
Illinois after he was assassinated.
Hundreds of thousands of people lined the
Pullman and the railroad

id you know that 30 million Americans
suffer from back and neck pain every day?
Sciatica and herniated discs are often
misunderstood. They can cause pain and
numbness in the back, neck, legs, and feet. This
pain affects everything that you do, from work
to play, and ultimately your quality of life. We
are here to tell you that there is hope. We have
the technology and experience to help you fnd
relief from sciatica and back pain. At Bay Area
Disc Centers, we have helped thousands of pain
sufferers just like you. We offer only the most
advanced non-surgical treatments.
Are pain pills effective, long-term solutions
when dealing with Sciatica and Back Pain?
Until now, people have masked their pain by
frequently taking prescription pain pills. This
type of pain relief is temporary. Often these
treatments lead to even more health problems
or worse yet addiction. Many people innocently
fall into abusing prescription pain pills while
initially using them to alleviate real, constant pain.
Is Surgery the Answer?
It is true that surgery may be the answer for
certain types of back injuries. When considering
your options, ask yourself this question
If there is a solution to back pain that doesnt
require surgery, is it worth exploring?
The Solution: TDC
TDC TherapyTraction Decompression Combined
Therapyis a proven treatment exclusive to Disc
Centers of America doctors for the relief of neck
and lower back pain. By utilizing traction thats
isolated to the spinal segment involved, the
purpose is to create spinal decompression as a
result to specifc traction.
TDC Therapy offers a significant success rate
and patients have experienced dramatic pain
relief and healing. This non surgical solution
is changing the way doctors treat severe disc
conditions. TDC Therapy is a unique and
innovative approach for the relief of neck and
lower back syndromes, including:
Herniated or buging discs
De-generative disc disease
Posterior facet syndrome
Spina Stenosis
TDC Therapy is non surgical and non invasive. It is
a gentle form of traction and disc decompression.
The treatment is not only safe, but also
comfortable and relaxing. The goal is symptomatic
relief and structural correction.
How Does TDC
Therapy Work?
TDC Therapy can isolate a specifc vertebra and
distract the vertebrae surrounding an injured
disc 5 to 7 millimeters. TDC Therapy treatment
isolates the specific vertebrae that are causing
the pain. The 25 to 30 minute treatment
provides static, intermittent, and cycling
forces on structures that may be causing
back pain. Negative pressure promotes the
diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrients into
the vertebral disc area, thereby re-hydrating
the degenerated disc. Repeated pressure
differential promotes retraction of a herniated
nucleus pulposus.
The TDC Therapy treatment works to reduce
pressure on the vertebral joints,promote
retraction of herniated discs, and promote self
healing and rehabilitation of damaged discs,
thereby relieving neck or lower back pain.
Why Bay Area Disc Centers
Dr. Thomas Ferrigno D.C. and his team have vast
experience in treating patients suffering from
severe disc disease. Dr. Ferrigno has performed
over 25,000 decompression treatments and
is currently only 1 of 2 doctors in the state of
California who is Nationally Certied in Spinal
Decompression Therapy. Dr. Ferrigno is also part
of the Disc Centers of America Team who are a
national group of doctors that have gone through
extensive training that follow the protocols set up
by The International Medical Advisory Board on
Spinal Decompression, and utilizes the protocols
set forward by Dr. Norman Sheay the Honorary
Chairman, former Harvard professor, and probaby
the most published doctor in the world on spinal
decompression therapy.

Vehicle strikes fire hydrant, disrupts water service
Water service was restored after being briey interrupted
after a vehicle crashed into a re hydrant causing water to
pour onto a residential street in San Mateo Saturday night,
according to the San Mateo County Ofce of Emergency
Following the crash, water from the re hydrant was
reported leaking into the roadway in the 1600 block of
Bayridge Way near the College of San Mateo campus.
At about 8:40 p.m., the countys Ofce of Emergency
Services reported that water service to homes in the area
would be interrupted while crews worked to repair the burst

Third mountain lion sighting since July 1
A mountain lion was spotted Friday morning near the
open space area adjacent to the San Mateo Highlands
neighborhood, police said.
According to San Mateo County Alert system, the animal
was spotted behind the homes in the 2000 block of
Lexington Avenue at about 7:30 a.m. This was the third
mountain lion sighting in San Mateo since July 1.
San Mateo police said that because of the citys proximi-
ty to open space areas populated by wildlife, interactions
with mountain lions and other non-domesticated animals
are a regularly occurring safety concern.
Given the recent big cat sightings, police have offered
several safety tips.
To avoid a mountain lion encounter, residents should
avoid hiking or jogging through wooded areas at dusk,
dawn and at night, when mountain lions are most active,
and should keep a close watch over children.
Residents should not leave pet food or any other food out-
side at night that would attract wild animals.
Anyone who encounters a mountain lion is advised not to
run, and should instead face the animal, make a noise and
try to look bigger by waving, throwing rocks or other
objects at the animal.

Tanks, military vehicles auctioned
Collectors from around the world have snapped up more
than 100 tanks and other military vehicles amassed by a
Silicon Valley engineer, auction ofcials said Sunday.
Jacques Littleelds collection, one of the nations most
extensive and historic, was sold in the San Francisco Bay Area
during one of the largest-ever auctions of military vehicles.
Bidders from 10 countries and 37 U.S. states bought near-
ly all of the 122 military vehicles on auction, generating
$10.24 million in sales, according to Auctions America,
which ran the auction on Friday and Saturday, on behalf of
the Collings Foundation.
Littleeld was a Stanford University-trained engineer who
collected the vehicles over decades and kept them on his fam-
ily estate up a winding, forested road above Silicon Valley.

Unexplained rash? Check your iPad.
It turns out the popular tablet comput-
er may contain nickel, one of the most
common allergy-inducing metals.
Recent reports in medical journals
detail nickel allergies from a variety of
personal electronic devices, including
laptops and cellphones. But it was an
Apple iPad that caused an itchy body
rash in an 11-year-old boy recently
treated at a San Diego hospital, accord-
ing to a report in Mondays Pediatrics.
Nickel rashes arent life-threatening
but they can be very uncomfortable,
and they may require treatment with
steroids and antibiotics if the skin
eruptions become infected, said Dr.
Sharon Jacob, a dermatologist at Rady
Childrens Hospital, where the boy
was treated. Jacob, who co-wrote the
report, said the young patient had to
miss school because of the rash.
The boy had a common skin condi-
tion that causes scaly patches, but he
developed a different rash all over his
body that didnt respond to usual treat-
ment. Skin testing showed he had a
nickel allergy, and doctors traced it to
an iPad his family had bought in 2010.
Doctors tested the device and detect-
ed a chemical compound found in nick-
el in the iPads outside coating.
He used the iPad daily, she said.
He got better after putting it in a pro-
tective case, she said
Whether all iPad models and other
Apple devices contain nickel is uncer-
tain; Apple spokesman Chris Gaither
said the company had no comment.
Nickel rashes also have been traced to
other common products including some
jewelry, eyeglass frames and zippers.
Jacob said evidence suggests nickel
allergies are become more common, or
increasingly recognized. She cited
national data showing that about 25
percent of children who get skin tests
for allergies have nickel allergies, ver-
sus about 17 percent a decade ago.
She said doctors need to consider elec-
tronic devices as potential sources when
patients seek treatment for skin rashes.

SANTA ROSA A protest against
ofcer-involved fatal shootings and
Sonoma County District Attorney Jill
Ravitchs decision not to charge a
sheriffs deputy with the murder of 13-
year-old Andy Lopez in October ended
late Saturday afternoon in downtown
Santa Rosa.
The rally that started at 1 p.m. in Old
Courthouse Square and a march through
the downtown that started around 3:30
p.m. was peaceful until more than a
dozen of the 100 protesters marched up
the Third Street off-ramp of north-
bound U.S. Highway 101 and onto the
highway where they blocked traffic
around 4:30 p.m.
The California Highway Patrol
staged three patrol cars and a motorcy-
cle about 50 yards south of the protest-
ers in the northbound lanes. When
CHP ofcers walked toward the pro-
testers on the highway, the group
moved back down the off-ramp.
They were met at the base of the
ramp by at least two-dozen Santa Rosa
police ofcers with several dozen more
staged nearby.
During a standoff at the base of the
off-ramp the protesters chanted The
Whole World is Watching, and one
protester briey lay down on the off-
ramp before the protesters marched to
the nearby Santa Rosa Plaza around
4:50 p.m.
The protesters marched through the
Macys store to get to B Street and con-
tinued the march back to Old Courthouse
Square where after more speeches the
rally ended around 5:45 p.m.
Many of those who attended the
rally and the march against ofcer-
involved shootings and what they

Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
By Alicia A. Caldwell
WASHINGTON President Barack
Obama can take action to relieve much of
the crisis caused by tens of thousands of
unaccompanied children crossing the south-
ern U.S. border without waiting for what is
likely to be a contentious and lengthy
Congressional battle, say two key lawmak-
ers, one Democrat and the other,
At issue is a provision in a 2008 human
trafcking law that puts the fate of young
immigrants from countries that dont border
the United States in the hands of immigra-
tion judges. The Obama administration has
expressed some interest in asking Congress
to change the law to give the administration
more leeway in dealing with the crisis. It
can take years for cases to make their way
through immigration courts.
But Rep. Mike Rogers, a Michigan
Republican and chairman of the House
Intelligence Committee, said Sunday that
wholesale changes by Congress may not be
necessary and that Obama has the authority
to return the children to their native coun-
tries. Since October, more than 57,000
children, mostly from Honduras, El
Salvador or Guatemala, have crossed the
Mexican border without their parents.
Obama has tools in his toolbox to
solve quickly what most ofcials say has
become a humanitarian crisis and to deter
more children from coming to the U.S.,
Rogers said.
We can safely get them home, Rogers
said on NBCs Meet the Press. He said,
And thats where the president needs to
start. So he needs to re-engage, get folks
who are doing administrative work on the
border. They need to make sure they send a
very clear signal.
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of
California, the author of the provision in
the human trafcking law, said a change in
regulations, not the law, could speed the
childrens return.
The law already allows the departments of
Homeland Security and Health and Human
Services to write regulations to deal with
exceptional circumstances that would allow
ofcials to return the children more quickly to
their home countries, Feinstein said.
I would urge HHS and DHS to sit down and
set the exceptional circumstances it may
be the number of children coming through
in a week or a month, however you see it
and how the process might be modied to
give you more time, she said Thursday dur-
ing a Senate Appropriations Committee
hearing on a $3.7 billion emergency budget
request from the White House to deal with
the growing crisis on the border.
Feinstein did not elaborate on what
changes to the current system she believed
the law already allows the president to
Under the current law, the Homeland
Security Department hs 72 hours to transfer
child immigrants traveling alone to the
Health and Human Services Departments
Ofce of Refugee Resettlement.
Amid the crush of children traveling
alone, more than 39,000 other people trav-
eling with their families, mostly mothers
and young children, have also been caught
in South Texas. An undisclosed number have
been released into the community with
notices to report back to immigration of-
cials or in court at a later date.
Obama said the $3.7 billion in emer-
gency spending would help the govern-
ment deal with the flood of unaccompanied
child immigrants crossing the border in
South Texas. Some of the money would go
to help fund about 40 additional immigra-
tion judge teams.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. A gunman who
killed a rookie ofcer responding to a report
of an armed robbery at a drugstore early
Sunday never tried to rob the store and
instead lay in wait for police, telling a wit-
ness to watch the news because he was
going to be famous, authorities said.
Lawrence Campbell shot Ofcer Melvin
Santiago in the head shortly after he and his
partner arrived at the 24-hour Walgreens at
around 4 a.m., Jersey City Mayor Steven
Fulop said. Other ofcers returned re at
Campbell, killing him.
Campbell, 27, of Jersey City, was one of
three suspects wanted by police for a prior
homicide, Fulop said.
Fulop said Campbell was carrying a knife
when he walked into Walgreens and asked
for directions to the greeting card aisle. He
assaulted an armed security guard at the store
and snatched his gun, Fulop said.
According to Fulop, Campbell
approached a witness and apologized for his
conduct, then said to watch the news later
because he was going to be famous, then
waited for officers to arrive and shot
Santiago with what police believe was the
guards weapon.
Today was a horrible day for Jersey
City, Fulop said.
Dozens of ofcers stood single le at the
entrance of the hospital and saluted as
Santiagos ag-draped body was carried into
an ambulance. Ahandful of younger ofcers
consoled one another as they walked away.
Santiago, 23, graduated from the police
academy in December.
Fulop was there when Santiagos body
arrived at the hospital. As Santiagos moth-
er identied the body, Fulop said, she just
keep repeating the badge number and saying
that its not possible.
Santiago is the rst Jersey City ofcer
killed in the line of duty since Detective
Marc DiNardo died in July 2009 during a raid
on an apartment while searching for sus-
pects in a robbery.
It is a tragic situation when any ofcer is
killed in the line of duty, Fulop said.
Melvin was an officer who represented
everything one would want to see in a police
ofcer. I know the entire citys thoughts and
prayers are with the Santiago family during
this difcult time and we mourn together.
Mayor: Cop killer said he
was going to be famous
By Joe Mandak
PITTSBURGH J. Keith Mularskis
world has expanded greatly since he
stopped selling discount furniture to join
the FBI 1998. Especially since he trans-
ferred from Washington, D.C., in 2005 to
ll a vacancy in the Pittsburgh eld ofces
cyber squad which he now heads.
Since then, Supervisory Special Agent
Mularski has been recognized as a foremost
expert on cybercrime. His prole has risen
even more since the Justice Department used
Mularskis sleuthing to bring two indict-
ments with worldwide ramications.
In May, ve Chinese Army intelligence
ofcers were charged with stealing trade
secrets from major manufacturers including
U.S. Steel, Alcoa and Westinghouse.
In June, a Russian man was charged with
leading a ring that infected hundreds of
thousands of computers with identity-
thieving software, then using the stolen
information to drain $100 million from
bank accounts worldwide.
Mularski, 44, said in April during an oral
history interview for the National Law
Enforcement Museum that he became a furni-
ture salesman out of college because jobs were
hard to come by then. He spent about ve
years in the business before joining the FBI.
I was in private industry beforehand. But
Ive kind of always liked computers,
Mularski told The Associated Press during a
recent interview.
All 56 FBI eld ofces have cyber squads.
Mularski chose Pittsburgh largely because of
family considerations he grew up in subur-
ban White Oak, the son of a steelworker.
It kind of looked like cyber was the
wave of the future, Mularski said. The
majority of all my computer training was
just on-the-job training at the bureau.
It has proved remarkably effective.
Even before the Chinese and Russian
cases made worldwide headlines, Mularski
was making cyber waves.
He made his reputation inltrating Dark
Market in 2006. The worldwide Internet
forum allowed crooks to buy and sell stolen
identity and credit card information.
Mularski inltrated the network by pre-
tending to be a notorious Polish computer
hacker using the screen name Master
Splyntr a takeoff on the cartoon rat who
guides the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Mularski was inspired while watching
the cartoon character with his young son:
Hes a rat that lives underground. It was
perfect, he said.

VIENNA Joint efforts by U.S. Secretary
of State John Kerry and three other Western
foreign ministers failed Sunday to advance
faltering nuclear talks with Iran, with the
target date for a deal only a week away.
There has been no breakthrough today,
said British Foreign Secretary William
Hague after meetings with Kerry and the for-
eign ministers of France, Germany and Iran.
The trip gave Kerry a chance to ease an
espionage dispute with Germany. After
meeting with German Foreign Minister
Frank-Walter Steinmeier, both stressed
the importance of their cooperation in
solving global crises, yet offered little
indication they have fully mended ties.
Separately, Kerry spoke by telephone with
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
about the escalating Mideast violence. Like
the others, he also met with Iranian Foreign
Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
Were working, were working, we just
got here, said Kerry, chiding reporters ask-
ing about progress as Sundays meetings
wound down.
But the dispute over Irans enrichment pro-
gram appeared to be defying the Western for-
eign ministerscombined diplomatic muscle.
Tehran says it needs to expand enrich-
ment to make reactor fuel but the U.S. fears
Tehran could steer the activity toward man-
ufacturing the core of nuclear missiles. The
U.S. wants deep enrichment cuts; Iran
wants to greatly expand enrichment.
There is a huge gap over enrich-
ment, said Hague, in comments echoed
by the other foreign ministers.
Steinmeier and French Foreign
Minister Laurent Fabius left Sunday, a few
hours after they arrived.
Kerry und Hague stayed on for another
day of diplomacy. Still, the dispute and
other differences strongly indicated that
six world powers and Tehran will need to
continue negotiations until July 20 and
could decide to extend their talks past that
informal deadline for a deal.
Such an agreement would buy time to
negotiate a pact limiting the scope of such
programs in exchange for a full end to
nuclear-related sanctions against Tehran.
Obviously we have some very signi-
cant gaps still, so we need to see if we can
make some progress, Kerry told reporters
before a meeting with European Union for-
eign policy chief Catherine Ashton, who is
convening the talks.
It is vital to make certain that Iran is
not going to develop nuclear weapons,
that their program is peaceful. Thats what
we are here trying to achieve.
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said
positions are still far apart, and the minis-
ters had come to try to narrow differences.
Steinmeier said he and other Western
foreign ministers had made clear in meet-
ings with Iranian officials that the ball
is Irans court.
It is now time for Iran to decide
whether they want cooperation with the
world community or stay in isolation, he
told reporters.
The show of Western unity notwithstand-
ing, Kerrys presence was most important.
With the most signicant disputes between
Washington and Tehran, his visit gave him
a chance to discuss them directly with Zarif.
Lower-ranking officials represented both
Russia and China, possibly reflecting their
view even before Sunday that talks past
July 20 are unavoidable.
No Iran breakthrough with Kerry in Vienna

MOSCOW Russias foreign ministry
said Sunday that a Ukrainian shell hit a
Russian border town, killing one person
and seriously injuring two others. Ukraine
denied ring a shell into Russian territory.
President Vladimir Putin expressed grave
concern over the incident, Russian news
agencies quoted his spokesman as saying. A
statement from Russias foreign ministry
labeled the event a provocation, and
warned of the possibility of irreversible
consequences, the responsibility for which
lies on the Ukrainian side.
Russia said the shell hit the courtyard of a
residential building in the Russian town of
Donetsk near the Ukrainian city of the
same name that has become a rebel stronghold
early on Sunday. Ukraines restless east has
been mired in a pro-Russian separatist insur-
gency against the Kiev government.
Ukrainian ofcials denied that any
Ukrainian shells had fallen on Russian territo-
ry. Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for
Ukraines National Security and Defense
Council, was quoted by Interfax Ukraine as
saying that Ukrainian forces do not re on
the territory of a neighboring country. They
do not re on residential areas. He placed
blame for the attack on the rebels themselves.
Russia has made repeated claims that set-
tlements along its porous border with
Ukraine which the West and Kiev say is a
key supply route for the rebels have been
hit by Ukrainian re, but no deaths have
been previously reported.
The claims come as Putin, whose nation
will host the 2018 World Cup, is attending
Sundays nal in Rio de Janeiro to take part
in a handover ceremony with Brazilian
President Dilma Rousseff and FIFAPresident
Sepp Blatter.
Brazilian ofcials said Saturday that both
Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart, Petro
Poroshenko, would attend the match. But
Poroshenko announced Sunday that he
wouldnt be going. Talks between Russia
and Ukraine over a cease-re between the
rebels and Kievs troops have stalled in
recent weeks, as Ukrainian troops have suc-
ceeded in pushing insurgents out of key
towns in the east.
Putin met Sunday with German Chancellor
Angela Merkel, also in Rio for the World
Cup final, to discuss eastern Ukraine.
Merkel spokesman Steffen Seibert said in a
statement that the two leaders agreed that
as soon as possible direct talks should take
place between the Ukrainian government
and separatists in form of a video confer-
ence. Selecting a location for talks has
been a key sticking point for both sides.
Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told
Russian news agencies that Putin and
Merkel believed the situation in east
Ukraine was deteriorating.

BAGHDAD Iraqs deadlocked parliament
failed Sunday to overcome the deep divisions
hampering the formation of a new govern-
ment, making no progress on choosing new
leaders who could help hold the nation
together and confront the Sunni militant
blitz that has overrun much of the country.
The legislature is under pressure to quick-
ly choose a new speaker of parliament,
president and prime minister the rst
steps toward a new government. The inter-
national community has pressed lawmakers
to put their differences aside, while the
United Nations has warned of chaos if the
political impasse drags on for too long.
But just 30 minutes into Sundays parlia-
ment session, acting speaker Mahdi al-
Hadh announced he was breaking off the
proceedings until Tuesday due to the
absence of any agreement on the names of
the nominees for the three posts.
There are still deep differences, he said. We
need more discussions to agree on the names.
Hopes had been raised that lawmakers
might at least vote on a speaker of parlia-
ment after Sunni blocs announced late
Saturday that they had agreed on a candidate
for the post, Salim al-Jubouri. But even that
proved difcult, and lawmakers dispersed
amid mutual recriminations.
We have presented our candidate for the
post of the parliament speaker, said lead-
ing Sunni lawmaker Osama al-Nujai. We
hold other blocs responsible for the delay.
Another Sunni legislator, Saleh al-
Mutlaq, said that Prime Minister Nouri al-
Maliki agreed to support al-Jubouris candi-
dacy on the condition that Sunnis back al-
Maliki for a third consecutive term. This
will not happen as we do not accept that,
al-Mutlaq told The Associated Press.
Mohammed Saadoun, a lawmaker from al-
Malikis State of Law bloc, conrmed that
al-Jubouri will not receive support without
Sunnis rst guaranteeing they will back al-
Maliki for prime minister. All sides that
get our votes should be clear and giver their
votes to us, he told AP.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip Thousands of
Palestinian residents of the northern Gaza
Strip ed their homes on Sunday and sought
safety in U.N. shelters, heeding warnings
from the Israeli military about impending
plans to bomb the area in the sixth day of an
offensive against Hamas that has killed
more than 160 people.
The ghting showed no signs of slowing,
despite international calls for a cease-re
and growing concerns about the mounting
civilian death toll in Gaza. U.S. Secretary of
State John Kerry spoke to Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and voiced
U.S. readiness to help restore calm, while
Egypt, a key mediator between Israel and
Hamas, continued to work behind the
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
called for an immediate cease-re in a state-
ment issued late Sunday by his spokesmans
Ban strongly believes that it is in the
interest of both sides that steps toward dan-
gerous escalation be replaced with immedi-
ate measures to end the ghting, thus pre-
venting further casualties and greater risks
to regional peace and security, it said.
Ban condemned Hamas indiscriminate r-
ing of rockets against Israeli civilian tar-
gets as a violation of international law, it
said. He abhorred the image of Israeli fam-
ilies hovering in shelters in fear of their
childrens safety and demanded an imme-
diate cessation of these indecent attacks.
At the same time, the U.N. chief is
deeply worried about the impact on
Palestinian families of Israeli military
action. Too many Palestinian civilians
have been killed, and any Israeli ground
offensive will undoubtedly increase the
death toll and exacerbate civilian suffering
in the Gaza Strip, it said.
Ban noted that despite the U.N. Security
Councils demand for a cease-re, the situ-
ation in and around the Gaza Strip appears
to be worsening, it said.
Amid the diplomacy, Israel said it was
pushing forward with preparations for a
possible ground invasion of Gaza.
Thousands of troops have massed along the
border in recent days.
We dont know when the operation will
end, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu told his Cabinet on Sunday. It
might take a long time. He said the mili-
tary was prepared for all possibilities.
Israel launched the offensive last Tuesday
in what it said was a response to heavy rock-
et re out of Hamas-controlled Gaza. The
military says it has launched more than
1,300 airstrikes, while Palestinian mili-
tants have launched more than 800 rockets
at Israel. The Palestinian Health Ministry in
Gaza says 166 people have been killed,
including dozens of civilians. There have
been no Israeli fatalities, though several
people have been wounded, including a
teenage boy who was seriously injured by
rocket shrapnel Sunday.
Early Sunday, the Israeli air force dropped
leaets around the northern Gaza town of
Beit Lahia ordering people to evacuate their
homes. Israel says much of the rocket re
has come from the area, and overnight
Sunday, the military carried out a brief
ground operation on what it said was a rock-
et-launching site that could not be struck
from the air. Four Israeli soldiers were light-
ly wounded before returning to Israel.
The U.N. refugee agency for Palestinians,
UNRWA, said some 17,000 Palestinians had
headed to special shelters set up in 20
United Nations schools in Gaza.
The fact that in a span of almost a few
hours, 10,000 people sought refuge in these
15 schools is an indication to the difcult
situation on the ground, said Sami
Mshasha, a UNRWAspokesman.
Some raced by in pickup trucks, waving
white ags. Once we received the message,
we felt scared to stay in our homes. We want
to leave, said one resident, Mohammed
Abu Halemah.
Shortly before nightfall, Israel carried out
a series of airstrikes in the northern Gaza
town of Beit Lahia. Hamas Al-Aqsa TV sta-
tion reported four airstrikes in a 10-minute
span, and a large plume of black smoke
could be seen over the area from the Israeli
border. There were no immediate reports of
Hamas, an Islamic militant group sworn
to Israels destruction, has remained deant,
and it continued to re rockets into Israel
throughout the day. It urged people in north-
ern Gaza to stay in their homes and has so
far rejected proposals for a cease-re as
They want us to put down our arms and
leave the resistance, said Moussa Abu
Marzouk, a top Hamas official, on his
Facebook page. They started the battle,
and we will stay on our land and ght to pro-
tect our future.
Thousands of Palestinians flee northern Gaza

Lack of compassion at
Maguire Correctional Facility
Sadly, my son has been in San
Mateo Countys Maguire Correctional
Facility in Redwood City for some
While this has been a sad and try-
ing experience for his family and
loved ones, it has been made worse
by the attitude of most of the staff,
both uniformed and civilian, in the
visitor lobby. For the most part, they
are cold, rude, impolite and totally
without compassion.
The visitors are typically San
Mateo County citizens who have
fathers, brothers, sons and friends in
the jail. Many of those incarcerated
have not been convicted of any
crime, yet their visitors are treated
shamefully. I dont know if this
reects the culture of this division,
but I can attest that visiting a loved
one at the county jail is a sad experi-
ence made much worse by the terrible
attitude and lack of compassion of the
visitors lobby staff.

The devil is in the details
As always, the devil is in the
details. Your article, New housing
proposed for Burlingame in the July
8 edition of the Daily Journal, men-
tions that this proposed development
may provide 100 market rate or
below-market rate units, with an
option to buy. Although it is laudable
that the city is talking to developers
about workforce housing, will this
development even begin to solve the
lack of affordable housing for fami-
lies, seniors and disabled people
the biggest issue in Burlingame?
Parking lots are decidedly secondary.
No analysis has been done on the
number of displacements that have
occurred in the last two to three years
because of egregious rent increases.
Renters are telling the council about
their nightmares: a family who had to
remove their children from school
and move away due to a $1,000 apart-
ment rent increase, another nine-unit
building of seniors who were slapped
with $800 and higher in increases and
forced out of apartments they had
lived in for 15 years and more.
The next City Council meeting on
Aug. 18 will review the draft housing
element for the citys master plan.
Councilmembers need to hear from
renters (who outnumber homeowners
in Burlingame) and anyone else who
cares about this issue. Let them know
we must stop the bleeding now and
provide affordable rental housing.

In the spirit of patriotism
Despite opposition and extreme
obstruction from congressional
Republicans, the Obama administra-
tion has been able to cut the decit,
reduce unemployment from 10 percent
to 6.1 percent, save 1.5 million auto
jobs, almost triple the stock market
and create over 200,000 private sec-
tor jobs for each of the last ve
months, with 288,000 created in June
alone. Imagine what could have been
done with just a little bit of support
and cooperation for the good of the
nation and in the spirit of patriotism.

Letters to the editor
By George Yang
exico has everything it
takes to become a success-
ful economy in her own
right. She has natural resources,
including oil and gas. She has natural
beauty and a storied history to which
tourists ock. And, above all, she has
a hard-working people with strong
family values.
So whats keep-
ing Mexico, and
other Central
American countries
with similar eco-
nomic conditions,
from reaching their
full potential? For
one, crony capital-
ism: a few tycoons,
through well-placed connections in
governments, become fabulously
rich. Articial barriers of entry, enact-
ed by the same governments, keep
competition away from the aspiring
entrepreneurs and create lucrative
monopolies in vital industries.
Broken education systems dont
help either. For example, the state of
Oaxaca, with a population of 3.8 mil-
lion, spends a billion-plus a year on
teacher payroll. On top of that, waste-
ful spending abounds, including one
ofce building with a pool that cost
$3.2 million. What do the students
get? From 1998 to 2007, according to
The Wall Street Journal, students in
Oaxaca missed 172 days because of
strikes, equal to one full school year.
The dominant and politically con-
nected union, CNTE, works very hard
to protect their political turf. If only
they work as hard at teaching.
Reforms are long overdue. But the
United States, by being the safety
valve for the most desperate and
enterprising, makes it difcult to
build up, within these nations, the
critical mass necessary for such
reforms. Worse still, remittance from
the United States had become a major
source of income for these countries.
In a way, we are rewarding those
states or provinces most effective
in squeezing people out.
Our failure to enforce our immigra-
tion laws also contributes to the
crime wave currently sweeping
Central America. With fathers and
mothers away, leaving only the
young and the old, communities lost
the most stabilizing and cohesive
force. Gangs reign.
But worst is the example we set. We
pride ourselves as a nation of law.
Now we pick and choose which laws
to enforce and give exemptions to
politically inuential groups. The so-
called sanctuary cities are prime
examples. To illustrate how ridiculous
these sanctuary policies are, for the
benet of our friends on the left, lets
imagine a city, say, Bakerseld,
declaring herself a sanctuary for gun
owners and refusing to enforce state
or federal gun registration laws within
their city limits.
Now the White House is planning
to spend additional hundreds of mil-
lions in Central America to ght the
crime wave. It is a temporary x at
best. Our southern neighbors need to
build stable and sustainable
economies and communities by struc-
tural reforms through the efforts of
local civil societies. We can help. We
should x our policies on substance
abuse; we should crack down on inter-
national criminal organizations; and
above all, to enable needed reforms
and to set a better example, America
should enforce our existing immigra-
tion laws, such as E-Verify.
George Yang is the vice chair of the
South Peninsula Area Republican
Coalition and was 2012 Republican
National Convention delegate for con-
gressional district 14.
Helping our southern neighbors What is all the fuss
about charter schools?
ecently the county seems all abuzz about charter
schools. Whether they should be approved by the
parent district and where they should locate are
leading to controversy. Whats this all about?
The San Mateo Union High School District has
approved Design Charter School and plans to locate it at
Mills High School. But many parents at Mills object.
They dont like the idea of students from outside the area
attending their high school and they like Mills just the
way it is. Meanwhile in San Carlos, neighbors objected to
a land swap between the City Council and school district
which would relocate the popular Learning Center,
Californias rst charter
school, to the Crestview
area. However, the San
Carlos City Council could
not muster enough votes to
send the idea to the ballot.
In Redwood City, the
school district recently
approved two new charters,
Rocketship Education and
KIPP Bay Area Schools
despite the objections of
the teachers association
and several parents.
The charter school move-
ment started about 20 years
ago. San Carlos Learning
Center was among the rst
in the nation and the very rst charter in California when
it opened in February 1993. Ironically, the idea of charter
or specialty schools may have originated with famous
union leader Albert Shanker, head of the American
Federation of Teachers. Despite opposition, primarily
from teachers unions, charter schools have grown in pop-
ularity. More than two million or 4.2 percent of students
in 41 states and the District of Columbia attend charters
while 610,000 more are on waiting lists. The schools are
publicly funded but run by nonprots or in some cases by
the school district itself. Charter school teachers dont
have to be union members.
Overall data does not show that charters are better than
public schools. But in some areas, especially where stu-
dents are primarily from low-income and minority fami-
lies, they have made a difference. According to a recent
Silicon Valley study on student achievement for Latino
and low-income students in San Mateo and Santa Clara
counties, charter schools topped the top 10 list (Innovate
Public Schools January 2014).
Charter schools also were pushed by some educators as a
better alternative than vouchers. At least charters
remained in public schools. They offered a free education
with advantages of longer school days, smaller classes,
required codes of conduct to attend and parent choice. This
was important in school districts in Washington, D.C.
and Chicago, for example, where there were so many low-
performing schools, and parents did not have the funds for
private or parochial schools. In both cities, unions con-
tinue to ght charters primarily because they challenge
union safeguards as tenure, seniority and job protection
for ineffective teachers. Perhaps the recent court case on
teacher tenure will solve one of these problems. But
longer school days still have to be negotiated and cost
more money. School districts pay for the operations of
the charter school and must nd them space. In turn, dis-
tricts can charge the charters for the space.
Some charters, San Carlos Learning Center for example,
were established to test different approaches to education
without the hindrance of restrictive laws. The hope is that
good charter schools will provide incentives for public
schools to improve and set the standard. Districts com-
plain that charters take away some of their funding. This
was an issue in Redwood City. Its based on how schools
are funded. Charters are public schools so the tax dollars
go to those students rather than the district. Of course, the
district has fewer students to educate since some of their
students are in charters.
Some educators worry that education for children in low-
performing school districts will be worse if charters
siphon off the best or most motivated students (parents).
But is it fair to deny these kids a chance to succeed by pro-
viding them with better tools a longer school day, a
more academically structured curriculum and perhaps better
teachers? Its the perennial dilemma in education equal-
ity versus achievement. Should a district with limited
funds focus its resources on those who need help the most
and leave those in the middle or on the top to fend for
themselves? Or should districts raise standards for every-
one to meet the new challenges of a global economy?
This is what the Common Core hopes to achieve but
it is attacked by some as being too hard for too many

new fruit that research says packs
more antioxidants than popular
superfoods like blueberries, acai
berries and goji berries is estab-
lishing itself in the aisles of
mainstream grocery stores, show-
ing up in everything from juices
to powdered supplements to baby
Its rise from being a novelty
item at farmers markets into a mul-
timillion-dollar U.S. industry
even includes a name change, from
the common chokeberry so
named centuries ago by European
settlers who found the tart, astrin-
gent berry more pretty than palat-
able to the aronia berry, derived
from its genus, Aronia
The native North American
berry was introduced in Russia and
eastern Europe in the early 20th
century and has been cultivated
there for juices and wines. Now,
farmers throughout the upper
Midwest are planting the shrubs
by the thousands every year. But
the industrys roots in the U.S.
can be traced to Sawmill Hollow
Family Farm in the Loess Hills of
western Iowa, where most in the
industry believe the rst bushes
were planted for commercial culti-
vation in the U.S.
Andrew Pittz, 28, is the driving
force behind the aronia berrys
emergence. His family was look-
ing for a crop they could cultivate
on the hilly, silt-heavy soil near
the Missouri River, and in 1997,
Pittzs parents planted some 200
bushes. The bush grows well in
the Midwest, has few pests and
doesnt have to be replanted every
The Pittz family was successful:
Sawmill Hollow products now are
sold in about half of Hy-Vees 237
stores, and in all of Whole Foods
45 Midwest-region stores, accord-
ing to spokeswomen for the
chains. Rather than keep the berry
and its economic potential under
wraps, Pittz and his family have
been spreading word far and wide
especially throughout Iowa.
The farm holds an annual field
day that draws thousands in
September, and Pittz planted
bushes in all 99 Iowa counties
last year. Even Iowa State
University is helping promote
the berry as a value-added crop
and a good way to diversify farm
income, offering grants to help
people get started.
We want the aronia berry to be
to Iowas Heartland what the
peach is to Georgia. Pittz said.
His family also has taught oth-
ers how to plant, grow and market
the almost black-purple, pea-
sized berries. They even share
best practices for pruning the
bushes for maximum yield, which
they developed over nearly 18
years of trial and error. A mature
bush at four to five years can pro-
duce up to 20 pounds.
Consumers are taking notice of
the potential health benefits,
said Stacey Loftus, Hy-Vees
health and wellness supervisor.
Research published last year in
the Journal of Agriculture and
Food Chemistry says aronias
oxygen radical absorbance capac-
ity a standard measurement of
antioxidant strength shows
the berry has one of the highest
values ever recorded for a fruit.
I dont think this is a passing
fad, she said.
Antioxidants help protect
cells from damage, although
there are questions in the medical
field as to what role antioxidants
play in helping prevent human
disease. Federal regulators have,
in recent years, targeted compa-
nies that have made unsubstanti-
ated health claims about antioxi-
dant-containing products. Last
year, the Federal Trade
Commission upheld a judges
decision that POM Wonderful
made deceptive claims that its
pomegranate products could treat
or prevent heart disease,
prostate cancer and other ill-
nesses. The FTCs action is
pending in the U.S. Court of
Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

The cultivation of the aronia berry has risen to a multimillion-dollar industry.

Shaping rail safety rules
WASHINGTON A string of
ery train derailments across the
country has triggered a high-
stakes but behind-the-scenes cam-
paign to shape how the govern-
ment responds to calls for tighter
safety rules.
Billions of dollars are riding on
how these rules are written.
Lobbyists from the railroads,
tank car manufacturers and the oil,
ethanol and chemical industries
have met more than a dozen times
since mid-May with ofcials at the
White House and the Pipeline and
Hazardous Materials Safety
Their message: Dont make us
pay for increased safety thats
another industrys problem.
The pitches illustrate why gov-
ernment officials who must
show that safety benets outweigh
the economic costs of rules
often struggle for years only to
produce watered-down regulations.
Deadline looms in Newark
airport wage hike flap
NEWARK, N.J. The dispute
over workers wages at Newark
Liberty International Airport
could be nearing a resolution.
United Airlines has criticized the
Port Authority of New York and
New Jersey for ordering wage
The Port Authority announced in
January that it would impose a $1-
per-hour wage increase for work-
ers, such as baggage handlers and
cabin cleaners, who make less
than $9 an hour. They would make
$10.10 hourly beginning next
In an email Friday, United reiter-
ated its position that the increases
should be imposed by state legisla-
tures and not by the Port Authority,
which operates the airport. But
United also said its vendors are
bound to abide by local rules.
Aspokesman for Chicago-based
United declined to say whether the
company would mount a legal
challenge to the increases.

The price is 8 percent above
URSs closing stock price Friday.
The California-based companies
said Sunday the combination was
necessary to building an integrat-
ed infrastructure services company
that can operate globally and pro-

Chinese man accused of
hacking into U.S. computers
SAN DIEGO U.S. authorities
have charged a Chinese business-
man with hacking into the com-
puter systems of U.S. companies
with large defense contracts,
including Boeing, to steal data
on military projects, including
some of the latest fighter jets,
officials said Friday.
Suspect Su Bin worked in
cahoots with two unnamed
Chinese hackers to get the data
between 2009 and 2013, and Su
attempted to sell some of the
information to state-owned
Chinese companies, according to
a criminal complaint filed in U.S.
District Court in Los Angeles
that was unsealed Thursday.
The men targeted fighter jets
such as the F-22 and the F-35 as
well as Boeings C-17 military
cargo aircraft program, according
to court papers.
An attorney for Su could not be
reached for comment. Su was
arrested in Canada on June 28 and
remains in custody there, said
FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller
in Los Angeles. He has a bail
hearing set for July 18.
U.S. Department of Justice
spokesman Marc Raimondi said
the conspirators are alleged to
have accessed the computer net-
works of U.S. defense contractors
without authorization and stolen
data related to military aircraft
and weapons systems.
We remain deeply concerned
about cyber-enabled theft of
sensitive information, and we
have repeatedly made it clear
that the United States will con-
tinue using all the tools our
government possesses t o
strengthen cyber security and
confront cybercri me,
Raimondi said.
Boeing said in a statement
that the company cooperated
wi t h i nvest i gat ors and wi l l
continue to do so to hold
accountable individuals who
perpetrate economic espionage
or trade secret theft against
U.S. companies.
We appreciate that the gov-
ernment brought its concerns
about a potential compromise
of our protected computer sys-
t ems t o our at t ent i on, t he
company said in a statement.
Accusat i ons of hacki ng by
China and counterclaims of
such activity by the U.S. gov-
ernment have strained U. S. -
Chi nese rel at i ons. Chi nese
hacking has been a major theme
of U.S.-China discussions this
week in Beijing, though both
sides have publicly steered
clear of the controversy.
The New York Times reported
Wednesday that Chinese hack-
ers broke into the computer
networks of the Office of
Personnel Management earlier
this year with the intention of
accessing the files of tens of
thousands of federal employees
who had applied for top-secret
security clearances. Senior
U.S. officials say the hackers
gained access to some of the
agencys databases in March
before the threat was detected
and blocked.
White House spokesman Josh
Earnest said Thursday that both
the federal personnel office and
the Department of Homeland
Security took steps to mitigate
any risk as soon as they learned
about the possible intrusion.

Atlantic Citys crumbling casino
market disintegrated even further
Saturday as the owners of the
Trump Plaza casino said they
expect to shut down in mid-
Trump Entertainment Resorts
told The Associated Press that no
nal decision has been made on
the Boardwalk casino. But the
company said it expects the casi-
no to close its doors Sept. 16.
Notices warning employees of
the expected closing will go out to
the casinos 1,000-plus employ-
ees Monday.
If Trump Plaza closes, Atlantic
City could lose a third of its casi-
nos and a quarter of its casino
workforce in less than nine
months. The Atlantic Club closed
in January, the Showboat is clos-
ing next month and Revel might
do likewise if a buyer cant be
found in bankruptcy court.
The head of Atlantic Citys main
casino workers union demanded
state lawmakers help head off what
he called a pending catastrophe
that will affect the states tourism
industry and tax collections.
Trump Entertainment Resorts
told the AP that its managers and
board of directors have been
reviewing alternatives for the
property. Although this review has
not been completed and no nal
decision has been made, the com-
pany expects that it will terminate
the operations of Trump Plaza
Hotel and Casino on or shortly
after September 16, 2014.
A source with direct knowledge
of the situation who was not
authorized to speak to the media
told the AP that the company has
hired a search rm to solicit buy-
ers for Trump Plaza, an effort that
remains ongoing. So far, no buyer
has emerged.
The company did not indicate
what might become of the build-
ing after it is closed.
Bob McDevitt, president of
local 54 of the Unite-HERE union,
said 7,000 casino workers - or
about one in four - have been
warned their jobs could disappear
within 60 days.
While this is a personal
tragedy for every family involved,
it is also a crisis for the state, he
said. We expect Trenton to react
with more than just sympathetic
sound bites; we demand action
equal to the magnitude of this
pending catastrophe.

RIO DE JANEIRO Mario Goetze pro-
duced the piece of individual skill that
Lionel Messi couldnt muster.
With two quick, deft touches, Goetze
ended Germanys 24-year wait for another
World Cup title with an extra-time winner
against Argentina on Sunday denying
Messi the one title he needs to forever take
his place among the games all-time greats.
It was the moment of brilliance that
ensured Germanys 1-0 victory in a tight
and tense nal.
Goetze, who wasnt born when West
Germany beat Argentina in the 1990 nal,
controlled a cross with his chest in the
113th minute and in one fluid motion
volleyed the ball past goalkeeper Sergi o
Romero and inside the far post from ve
yards out.
It delivered Germany its fourth World Cup
title, equal second with Italy on the list of
all-time champions and just behind Brazils
Its an unbelievable feeling. I dont
know how to describe it. You just shoot that
goal in, you dont really know whats hap-
pening, Goetze said. And then at the end
of the match, having a party with the team,
the whole country ... it is for us, a dream
come true.

Half Moon Bay manager Mike Barragan
was optimistic after Sundays 9-7 loss to
Pleasanton in the second round of the
Section 3 Juniors All-Star Baseball
Tournament at Half Moon Bay High School.
By the numbers, the game should have
been a blowout. Entering into its nal at-
bat, Half Moon Bay was being out-hit 12-3
and had committed six errors to
Pleasantons one. Still, Half Moon Bay
managed to get the tying run to the plate in
the seventh.
So, perhaps Barragans optimism in the
face of falling to the losers bracket of the
double-elimination tournament is warranted.
It makes the road tougher, Barragan
said. Now, to win this, we have to win
three straight. Outside of that, we just have
to come back [Monday] ready to go and
hopefully we can meet these guys again and
give them a little bit better showing than
the six errors.
Early on, the game seemed to be shaping
up as a pitching duel. Half Moon Bay starter
Alex Smith red two shutout innings before
giving way to the bullpen. After that, the
Pleasanton offense immediately came to
life, rallying for ve in the third, two in the
fourth, and single runs in the fth and sixth.
Credit to [Pleasanton], Barragan said.

Half Moon Bay suffers 1st sectional loss

Bumgarner was so enthused by seeing
Buster Posey hit a grand slam, he did the
same thing the next inning.
Bumgarner became the
rst pitcher in 48 years to
hit two grand slams in a
season, and Posey also
hit a slam Sunday that
boosted the San Francisco
Giants over the Arizona
Diamondbacks 8-4.
Everybody was excited
to get a big hit like that,
Bumgarner said of Posey.
That put us back in the
lead. Thats what big-time players do and hes
a good one already.
Posey and Bumgarner became the rst bat-
terymates in major league history to hit
grand slams in the same game.
Thats pretty cool, Bumgarner said.
This game is full of strange statistics. It
seems like there is a rst every day. Its crazy
to get that many opportunities as a pitcher.
A double by Bumgarner helped set up
Poseys slam in the fth. Bumgarner homered
the next inning he also hit a slam on April
11 against Colorado.
All we could do was shake our heads,
Posey said. I was asking Rags (Dave
Righetti) if any pitcher had ever hit two
slams in the same season.
The last pitcher to launch two slams in a
season was Tony Cloninger, who hit both in
the same game for Atlanta on July 3, 1966,
against the Giants at Candlestick Park.
Diamondbacks catcher Tuffy Gosewisch

they were going to pitch to Bumgarner.

Sam Alton has long dreamed of playing
Division I baseball. Last Tuesday, the Caada
College ace right-hander committed to making
his dream a reality by signing a National Letter
of Intent to transfer to Middle Tennessee State.
Coming off a breakout season for which he
was named the Coast Pacic Conference
Pitcher of the Year, Alton projects to be a key
piece of the Blue Raiders pitching puzzle after
the team lost three mainstay arms following
the 2014 campaign.
Ive always wanted to go Division I ever
since I started playing, Alton said. Truthfully,
I wanted to play D-I baseball even before I had
the dream of playing major
league baseball. Just to
have a chance to jump at
that, I denitely did.
Of Middle Tennessees
four biggest inning
eaters of 2014, only one
left-hander Johnathan
Frebis is slated to
return next season.
It was the pro signing of
Middle Tennessee right-hander Matt Blackham
which opened a roster spot of Alton.
Blackham was selected in the 29th round by
the New York Mets, but did not immediately
sign. Coming off his junior season, he instead
enlisted in the Texas Collegiate League. After
dazzling through two appearances with the
Brazos Valley Bombers he yielded one hit
over nine innings while striking out 14 the
Mets tendered Blackham a contract.
As a result, Altons telephone rang with a
surprising call from Middle Tennessee pitch-
ing coach Skylar Meade. The two talked for
approximately 30 minutes, by virtue of
which Altons future transfer plans immedi-
ately became clear.
I was all in from the rst phone call,
Alton said.
Previous to Middle Tennessees offer, Alton
was elding offers from smaller schools and
was leaning towards transferring to Georgia
College, where Caada Male Athlete of the
Year Dylan Cook is committed to play next
season. Altons sophomore performance as
one of the top workhorses in California
posting a 10-1 record with 102 innings
pitched was surely appealing to a Middle
Tennessee team looking to replace the 227 2/3
innings lost with the signings of Blackham
and ace left-hander Zac Curtis, and the gradua-
tion of senior right-hander Paul Mittura.
Luck had it that Middle Tennessee lost a
couple guys to the draft and needed some more
arms, Alton said.
And Alton is anticipating a big role with the
2015 Blue Raiders.
Theyre saying its either going to be a
starting role or rst out of the pen, Alton said.

Vidal Nuno (0-1) allowed four runs and
six hits in five innings during his second
start with Arizona.
The Giants finished the first half by win-
ning five of nine. That followed a stretch
of 18 losses in 23 games that cost them
their lead in the NL West.
Cody Ross hit a two-run homer for the
Diamondbacks, who are 5-8 in their past
13 games. Martin Prado had three hits and
drove in a run.
Bumgarner escaped a perilous sixth
because of some fancy defensive plays,
including his own.
Ender Inciarte and Prado each singled to
start the inning. With Paul Goldschmidt
batting, Bumgarner caught Inciarte taking
off early for third for the first out.
Right fielder Hunter Pence, who also
threw out a runner at third in the first
inning, tracked down Goldschmidts drive
one step before slamming into the fence
and third baseman Pablo Sandoval made a
diving stop of Mark Trumbos sharp
grounder to end the inning.
Nuno breezed through the first four
innings before running into trouble in the
fifth. Bumgarners one-out double started
the rally. Pence was hit by a pitch and
Sandoval, who had three hits, singled
ahead of Posey, who homered into the left-
field bleachers.
A double, an infield fielding error and a
walk set up Bumgarners slam in the sixth
against Stites. Bumgarner earlier victim-
ized Jorge De La Rosa of the Rockies.

SEATTLE Sonny Gray limited the Seattle
Mariners to just six hits and one unearned run
and the Oakland Athletics earned a 4-1 victory
over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.
Gray earned his 10th victory and Sean
Doolittle recorded the nal four outs for his
14th save.
James Jones singled and advanced to third on
an errant pickoff attempt from Gray. Jones
scored on an RBI groundout from Robinson
Cano to give the Mariners a 1-0 lead in the rst.
Seattle squandered an opportunity to add
to its lead in the fourth inning. Cano and
Kyle Seager singled to put runners on the
corners with no outs. Gray worked out of the
jam with a strikeout of Dustin Ackley leav-
ing the runners stranded.
After managing just one hit off Seattle starter
Chris Young (8-6) through four innings, the
Athletics broke through in the fth inning.
Jed Lowrie reached with a one-out double.
After an Andy Parrino walk, Craig Gentry
singled to center and Lowrie beat the throw
home to tie the game at 1-1. John Jaso fol-
lowed with a single to drive in Parrino and
give Oakland the lead.
Brandon Moss hit his 21st home run of
the season into the right field seats to
extend the As lead to 3-1 in the sixth.
Young (8-6) allowed three runs and ve hits

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.

Diego Maradona, who led his country to the
1986 title.
The 22-year-old Goetze went on as a substi-
tute for Miroslav Klose near the end of regula-
tion time and his fresh legs made the differ-
Andre Schuerrle broke down the left ank,
sending his cross into the area, and the Bayern
Munich midelder did the rest with a clinical
nish. The goal echoed that of Andres Iniesta
four years ago, when the midelder scored in
similar fashion but from the other side of the
area to give Spain a 1-0 extra-time win over
the Netherlands.
It went entirely to script, according to
Germany coach Joachim Loew.
I said to Mario Goetze, OK, show to the
world that youre better than Messi and you
can decide the World Cup. You have all the
possibilities to do that, Loew said. I had a
good feeling with him.
Germany became the rst European team to
win a World Cup in the Americas, and the vic-
tory ends a string of near misses since win-
ning its last major title at the 1996 European
Championship. The team lost the 2002 World
Cup nal to Brazil, the Euro 2008 nal to
Spain and was eliminated in the seminals in
both 2006 and 2010.
Argentina had not been back in the nal
since that 1990 loss, and has
now been beaten by Germany
in the last three World Cups.
This was our chance, and
we felt that way. We couldnt
do it. We have to lift our heads
and suffer the pain,
Argentina midelder Javier
Mascherano said.
Obviously, the pain is
It is Germanys rst World
Cup title as a unied nation,
having won as West Germany in 1954, 1974
and 1990.
The Germans faced Argentina in both the
1986 and 1990 nals, during Maradonas hey-
day. This time, they were up against Messi,
the four-time world player of the year who has
set a slew of scoring records in leading
Barcelona to every major club title and is
widely considered the best player since
But in the biggest game of his career, Messi
came up short.
He had one good chance to score when he
was sent free in the area just after the halftime
break, but sent his shot wide. It was a difcult
angle, but still the type of chance he so often
converts for Barcelona.
Messi threatened intermittently throughout
the match, but was effectively smothered by
the German defense. His free kick in the 120th
minute went well high.
Messi, who scored four goals in the group
stage but none in the knockout rounds, then
had to trudge alone up the stairs of the
Maracana Stadium to accept the Golden Ball
award for the tournaments best player, shak-
ing hands with German Chancellor Angela
Merkel along the way.
At this moment I dont care about this prize
only lifting the trophy matters, Messi
said. Im hurt for losing the way we did. ... I
think we deserved a little better, we had
chances. As well as they controlled the ball,
we still had the clearest chances. After Messi
received his award, the German team made its
way up the stairs for captain Philipp Lahm to
raise the hallowed 18-carat gold trophy.
Until Goetzes winning goal, the game was
more notable for top-class defending than cre-
ative attacking, but both teams had their share
of chances.
Gonzalo Higuain red wide when gifted a
chance in a one-on-one with goalkeeper
Manuel Neuer, and later had a goal ruled out for
Germany defender Benedikt Hoewedes hit
the post just before halftime with a header.
Germany had entered the game as the
favorite after its 7-1 seminal drubbing of
Brazil. But Argentina proved to be an entirely
different proposition.
Im very proud of the team. They played a
great game against a great team, Argentina
coach Alejandro Sabella said. I salute the
players, they made the country proud.
After Germanys last win in 1990, then-
coach Franz Beckenbauer predicted that a uni-
ed Germany would be unbeatable in the
future. It took 24 years to prove him right but
with young players like Goetze, the next wait
may not be as long.
We, I think, deserve this trophy, Goetze

Coming off a taxing season with the
Colts, Alton has refrained from pitching
this summer. He initially was slated to
pitch for the Menlo Park Legends. After
throwing a pair of lackluster bullpens in
early June, however, he opted to take the
summer off, instead committing to a
cross-t program with a personal trainer
for the rst time in his life, he said.
Alton said he intends to resume
long-tossing and throwing off a mound
this week.
At the end of the season I was very
tired, Alton said. It was the most
innings Ive ever thrown.
Never having been to Tennessee, Alton
is now set to quickly dispatch to the
Middle Tennessee campus in
Murfreesboro. Just a half hour from
Nashville, the music culture clash may
prove as big a challenge as retiring
Division-I hitters. Alton said he has
warmed up to country music in recent
years, but given his way, his entrance
music would be the techno jam Baby,
Baby by TropKillaz.
I dont know how theyll like it out in
Tennessee, Alton said. Its a good song.
Its getting the crowd up and getting them
all amped.
And so will his pitching if Alton con-
tinues to perform the way he did this year
at Caada.

MULHOUSE, France German rider Tony
Martin broke ahead early and comfortably
held on to win the hilly ninth stage of the
Tour de France on Sunday, while Frenchman
Tony Gallopin took the yellow jersey from
overnight leader Vincenzo Nibali of Italy.
The 29-year-old Martin, a three-time world
time trial champion, broke away with specialist
climber Alessandro De Marchi of Italy.
The objective was to win the stage. There
was a chance to do it and I felt good, my legs felt
good, he said. I knew it would be one of my
rare chances to win a stage.
The 170-kilometer (105.4-mile) stage
from Gerardmer to Mulhouse in the
Vosges mountain range near the German bor-
der featured six mostly moderate uphill
treks that posed Martin little problem, even
though he is not a reputed climber.
When the stage started to climb I realized I
was stronger and started to attack and then
things went well, he said. Were close to
Germany and that was an extra incentive.
It was a good day for France with
Gallopin set to defend the yellow jersey
on Monday Bastille Day and for
Germany, where most attention was on the
national teams World Cup final against
Argentina in Brazil later on Sunday.
Martin plans to have his feet up in front of the
television to follow the match.
Of course I will watch it, said Martin, who
had a winning time of 4 hours, 10 minutes.
Lets say Germany will win thats for sure.
Im a good omen. Lets say 3-0.
Gallopin, of the Lotto Belisol team, n-
ished several minutes behind but did well
enough to erase his decit of more than
three minutes to Nibali.
Its with great pride that I will ride on the
national holiday day in the yellow jersey, the
26-year-old Gallopin said. Its a little bit scary,
but I will enjoy the day.
Gallopin leads Nibali by 1 minute, 34
The last Frenchman to wear the yellow jer-
sey was Thomas Voeckler in 2011. He also
wore it in 2004 the year disgraced cyclist
Lance Armstrong won the sixth of his seven
Tour crowns, before later being stripped of
all of his titles for doping.
Shortly before the days most difcult
climb a Category 1 ascent up Le Markstein
Martin broke away about 60 kilometers
(37 miles) from the end. Gallopins chasing
group was about two minutes behind them and
Nibali more than six minutes adrift.
Martin was no threat to Nibalis yellow jer-
sey, but the 26-year-old Gallopin was.
Nibali was losing more and more ground, and
urged his Astana teammates to step up the pace
as they reached the last of climbs a short, but
sharp climb up Grand Ballon. But they had left
themselves far too much to do.
Martin, who narrowly beat Tour champion
Chris Froome in last years time trial, continued
to surge ahead, with a favorable wind behind
him making for a quick descent down to the n-
ish for his third career stage win.
Martin wins Tour 9th stage, Gallopin takes lead

and they put pressure on us.

Pleasanton received a lot of help
though, with Half Moon Bay com-
mitting six errors and walking ve.
Half Moon Bay got on the board
rst, scoring two runs by virtue of
a two-out rally in the bottom of
the second. Aaron Beard drew a
walk to start it. After Beard stole
second, Joey Greco singled on the
ineld, with Beard scoring on a
throwing error. Zack Zioncheck
followed with a walk, and Jared
Mansikhani singled to right to
score Greco, giving Half Moon
Bay a 2-0 lead.
The lead didnt last for long
though. Pleasanton sent 10 bat-
ters to the plate in the third, with
cleanup hitter Jimmy Kaufman
giving his team the lead with an
RBI to knock in Mitch Benson.
Pleasanton tabbed six hits in the
inning and capitalized on two Half
Moon Bay errors.
With Pleasanton leading 7-2
going into the bottom of the
fourth, Half Moon Bay attempted a
comeback with another two-out
rally. Greco reached on a strikeout-
wild pitch. Zack Zioncheck
walked. Then Mansukhani reached
on an ineld error to plate Greco.
Drew Zioncheck followed with an
RBI single to score his brother,
and Mansukhani plated on a balk,
cutting Pleasantons lead to 7-5.
Pleasanton reliever Cal
OLoughlin settled in for the
longest outing of the day by either
teams pitching staff though.
Entering amid the fourth-inning
rally, OLoughlin ultimately worked
3 1/3 innings to earn the save. But
Half Moon Bay put some pressure
on the right-hander in the seventh.
Trailing 9-5 going into its nal
at-bat, Half Moon Bay took its
loudest swings of the day. Drew
Zioncheck sparked a rally by lead-
ing off with a walk. Jakob
Meighen tabbed a sharp one-out
single. Cleanup hitter Dawson
Campbell followed with a boom-
ing double to right to score Drew
Then with two runners in scoring
position, catcher Justin Garcia
representing the tying run
smashed a long drive, but directly at
Pleasantons left elder. The out
went for a sacrice y to plate
Meighen, but prevented Half Moon
Bay from ever bringing the poten-
tial go-ahead run to the plate.
If that ball dropped it could
have been a whole different ball-
game, Garcia said. I could have
been in scoring position and had it
score two runs.
Including a 7-1 victory over
Tennyson American in Saturdays
tournament opener, the heart of
Half Moon Bays order, prior to
Sundays seventh-inning rally,
was 1 for 16 in the tourney.
The middle of our lineup hadnt
done anything up until that
point, Barragan said. Theyre
hitting 3-4-5 for reason, from
what weve seen, and weve been
waiting for it. So, hopefully that
carries over and keeps us alive for
a little longer. But weve got the
hard road (through the losers
bracket) and we just get to play a
little more.
With the loss, Half Moon Bay
falls to the losers bracket to take
on Niles-Centerville Monday at
5:30. Niles advanced Sunday with
a 7-5 win to eliminate Tennyson.
The benet of Half Moon Bay
having gone to the bullpen early
is it will have its ace, Smith,
available for Tuesdays champi-
onship round, should it win
Monday. The southpaw threw 32
pitches against Pleasanton. As per
Section 3 Juniors pitch-count
rules, had he surpassed the 50-
pitch plateau, he would not have
been allowed to pitch for two days.
Obviously hes our guy and
hindsight is 20-20, Barragan
said. We dont want to use him
today if were going to need him
down the road. And also, weve got
condence in the other guys. It
didnt quite work out. The defense
let [our relievers] down, and
with a team that swings it. But
now [Smith] is available Tuesday.
And hopefully theres no reason to
pull him on Tuesday.

HMBs Dawson Campbell breaks up a double play as Pleasantons shorstop
attempts to turn it after a barehanded grab of the second basemans feed.
If you hit, youre going to
play. Thats the mindset of most
coaches, Coach Falk said. But
our guys, they know if youre not
pulling your weight defensively,
theres going to be someone else
to step in.
The pitching depth is in prime
form as well. With a constant rota-
tion of pitchers to avoid running
up pitch counts, all of Pacicas
arms are available for Tuesdays
game. Sunday, the magic pitch-
count number was 35, after which
pitchers, by rule, are not allowed
to pitch for two days.
We kept everybody under 35,
Coach Falk said.
Saturday, Chris Rodriguez
earned the win, firing 2 2/3
innings. The right-hander surren-
dered two runs on two hits while
striking out six. The bullpen of
Ricks, Thompson and Andrew
Harkness combined for 3 1/3
innings of one-hit ball, with the
southpaw Thompson earning the
When Rodriguez isnt pitching,
he anchors the hot corner. Wi t h
Pacica touting three other pitch-
ing arms with ace stuff, Rodriguez
is considered the No. 4 pitcher in
the rotation. That Coach Falk
prefers to start other pitchers in
big games has everything to do
with Rodriguezs third-base
defense, though, as opposed to
any potential drawback to his tak-
ing the mound.
Hes got ace stuff, Coach Falk
said. But hes such a good defend-
er I can put him at third base and
forget about him.
Sunday, Ricks earned the win
while managing to post the same
pitching line as Rodriguez had the
day before. Ricks went 2 2/3
innings, allowing two runs on two
hits while striking out six.
Thompson worked two innings to
earn the save.
Ricks didnt show such domi-
nance in the District 52
Tournament, instead tending
toward throwing in-game batting
practice. But the right-hander was
nails through two appearances
over the weekend, also throwing
one inning of shutout relief
Ricks pitched fantastic all
year, Coach Falk said. The way
he threw [over the weekend], hes
worked out some of the mechanics
and hes back to where he was dur-
ing the season.
Tuesday, Pacica will play the
winner of Mondays losers brack-
et matchup between Mission and
San Lorenzo. Either team would
have to defeat Pacica twice to
advance to the Northern California
playoffs. As 10-year-olds in 2012,
Pacifica captured the Section 3
title. Last season in the 10-11-
year-old section tourney, Pacica
fell to Danville in the champi-
onship game.
In other Section 3 action, the
10-11-year-old tournament saw
San Mateo National fall to the los-
ers bracket Sunday. National won
Saturdays opener 10-0 over
Mission San Jose, but fell Sunday
to Tassajara Valley, 9-8. National

SOUTHPORT, England Mo Martin knew
she hit her 3-wood exactly how she wanted
on the 18th hole at Royal Birkdale.
With the ball slightly below her feet,
just under 240 yards away and a strong
wind at her back, she let it rip and
watched the ball track toward the flag.
Martin thought it was short. Then she
thought it might be too long. Moments
later, she realized just how good it was.
I could hear it hit the pin from the fairway,
Martin said. That was a pretty fun feeling.
The ball rolled into the center of the ag-
stick and settled 6 feet away for an eagle, and
when no one could catch her, the 31-year-old
American became a major champion Sunday
at the Ricoh Womens British Open.
I think I still need to be pinched, Martin
said after closing with an even-par 72 for a one-
shot victory over Shanshan Feng of China and
Suzann Pettersen of Norway.
It was Martins rst eagle of the year one
of the shortest hitters in the game, she doesnt
get many opportunities. She had not won on
the LPGATour in 63 previous tries. And on a
wind-swept Sunday when no one broke par, she
was never closer than two shots of the leaders
the entire nal round.
The best shot of her life changed everything.
An absolutely perfect 3-wood, she said.
When it was in the air, I said, Sit.And then I
said, Stop.And then when it was going toward
the hole, I said, OK, I dont have anything
more to say to that ball. I actually heard it hit
the pin. Its denitely one to remember.
She turned and did a little jig in the fairway.
An hour later, it turned out to be the win-
ning shot when Feng and Inbee Park of
South Korea couldnt stay under par.
Both needed one birdie over the two par-5 clos-
ing holes at Royal Birkdale. Feng missed birdie
putts of 15 and 10 feet and shot 75. Park missed
a 12-foot birdie putt on the 17th, and then put her
tee shot in the right rough on the easy 18th hole
and wound up with a bogey for a 77.
Martin, who nished at 1-under 287, was
on the practice range preparing for a playoff
that never happened when she hugged her
caddie, Kyle Morrison.
Is this real life? she said.
It seemed like a fairy tale for Martin. Growing
up with modest means, her father built a cage in
their driveway for her to practice hitting balls.
She walked on at UCLA. She needed nancial
help to keep her dream alive, including the six
years it took just to reach the LPGATour. Martin
said she would keep trying if she woke up
happy, felt she was still contributing some-
thing to womens golf and could pay her bills.
And here she is Mighty Mo, never hap-
When she returned from the range, players
gathered around her cart to celebrate with a
champagne shower.
Its still soaking in, along with champagne
in my jacket, Martin said. This is just unbe-
lievable. Its literally a dream come true.
It was a disappointment for Park, trying to
become the seventh woman to capture four of
the LPGAs major. She had a two-shot lead at
the turn until the high grass grabbed the bot-
tom of her wedge on the 10th, sending her to a
double bogey. She fell out of the lead by going
long on the 14th for bogey,
and never caught up.
Made a lot of mistakes
that I really didnt need to
make, Park said. Obviously
the last hole drive was really
Pettersen finished birdie-birdie that
allowed her to share second place, but not
enough to atone for a pair of double bogeys
earlier in the round.
Martin earned $474,575 she had
$599,760 in career money when she arrived in
Americans now have won the rst three
majors of the LPGA Tour season for the rst
time since 1999, with Martin following Lexi
Thompson at the Kraft Nabisco Championship
and Michelle Wie at the U.S. Womens Open.
A more likely candidate to extend that
streak at Royal Birkdale would have been
Stacy Lewis, the defending champion, who
also started only three shots behind. Lewis
didnt make a birdie until the 18th hole and
closed with a 78. Wie missed the cut, and
Thompson nished 15 shots out of the lead.
Martin had a three-shot lead going into
the weekend, building her strategy of keep-
ing the ball in the fairway. But she had a 77
in the third round, and that gured to be the
end of her chances. After two bogeys in ve
holes to start the nal round, she was solid
the rest of the way. And then she was simply
spectacular at the end.

and visitors from parking on the street
for the better part of the day.
Pl an opponent s ask what happens
when deliveries or landscapers need to
park during the day. What happens when
visitors cant fit in the driveway? And
will residents want to get up prior to 7
a.m. to move their cars?
Octavio Jara, who has lived on Holly
Street for six years and works from
home, said the citys description of the
traffic problem is not accurate. There are
times when cars do jam the street but not
around the clock, he said.
Holly can be tricky but its not an all-
day Monday through Friday problem. Its
ridiculous to take away the parking,
said Jara.
The Greater East San Carlos group also
took time elapsed photographs of Holly
Street on June 30 which they plan to
show the council Monday and say show
far less traffic than what the city claims.
Traffic counts cited by the city show an
average of 600 or more vehicles passing
through Holly Street in both directions
every hour from 7 a. m. to 6 p. m.
throughout the week, according to Public
Works Director Jay Walter.
With the future opening of the Palo
Alto Medical Foundation medical cam-
pus, the Transit Village and the landmark
hotel, traffic is bound to only worsen,
Walter said.
Parking is currently restricted 4 p.m.
to 6 p.m. westbound and 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.
and 3 p. m. to 6 p. m. eastbound.
Expanding the restrictions to add anoth-
er traffic lane will make it harder for res-
idents to exit their driveways and could
prove dangerous to children in the area,
Jara said.
Eminent domain an option
City officials say they understand the
Holly Street neighbors concerns but
their hands are a bit tied due to geogra-
phy and Caltrans regulations. Walter
said its also time to pull the trigger on
efforts long talked about but not yet
People want to see us make progress
at improving traffic at Holly but time
and time again theres been pushback.
Were at the point where we need to
begin making some of those improve-
ments, Walter said.
In September, Walter said he and the
staff will be back to the council for a
st udy sessi on on t he feasi bi l i t y of
changes to the Harbor Boulevard and
Brittan Avenue interchanges.
Ultimately, he said, in the end were
pushing off what some has described as
the inevitable which is expanding
That could involve buying homes so
Walter said he hopes restriping Holly
Street to accommodate two lanes and
restricting parking may make enough of
an change.
Residents like Jara and GESC President
Ben Fuller disagree that this is the best
approach to take.
Incremental changes
The GESC believes the city should
move incrementally, restriping and syn-
chronizing lights on Industrial Road and
El Camino Real to improve flow before
moving to a greater parking ban.
What theyre doing is a low-level
remedial approach instead of an all-
encompassing look at the traffic prob-
lems to reach a solution, Fuller said.
The GESC is also requesting the city
look at adding northbound lanes on
Highway 101 at Harbor Boulevard and
Brittan Avenue and consider using the
easement on Crestview Drive to add
access to Interstate 280.
Holly is not the only entrance to San
Carlos. Its just the one most people get
on their Mapquest, Jara said.
Mayor Mark Olbert said Crestview
i snt an option because land between it
and Interstate 280 is owned by a San
Francisco water company. Changes at
Brittan and Harbor are unlikely because
Caltrans has rules about the proximity of
interchanges. Closing Holly to allow
one would isolate Redwood Shores and
the east side of Brittan is in a federally
protected marsh, he added.
People throw out these ideas but they
dont understand the constrains were
under, Olbert said.
The amount of room needed for an
interchange is also prohibitive, Walter
From an engineering standpoint, sure
you can do it. But from an environment
and community standpoint probably
not, he said.
Crestview isnt really a good solution,
either, he said because even if Belmont
agreed to remove its barrier at Hallmark
Drive, drivers on the Holly side of the
city arent going to opt for the Interstate
280 option.
Other ideas
The council approved the changes at
its last meeting but requires a second
reading to finalize them. Only a handful
of residents showed up then to protest
but Jara and Fuller say that is because
they only learned of the meeting via
postcard three days before.
Of course nobody said anything.
Nobody knew about it, Jara said.
Once the restriping and light synchro-
nization is done, Fuller said expanding
the parking restrictions should only be
added an hour at a time to see at what
point a fix is reached rather than speed-
ing to an all-day change.
Lets slow things down a little bit,
he said.
The Holly Street parking ordinance is
on the councils consent agenda and
Fuller isnt optimistic it will be pulled
for discussion. But he, Jara and other
GESC are dusting off their red shirts from
earlier battles with the council over
PAMF, the Transit Village and even In-
and-Out Burger. With enough turnout at
Mondays meeting, they say perhaps the
council will hit the brakes.
I would love for them to realize that
maybe this is too much. Maybe we need
to scale it back, Jara said. Id love to
see them change their minds.
If passed, Walter said the change will
take effect within 30 to 60 days and the
city will coordinate with the Sheriffs
Office to pass out courtesy notices lead-
ing up to the implementation date.

Lactawen, who was a special needs

known for his catch phrases such as

frequented San Bruno restaurants BJs

I ni t i al l y, Newells bartender Ashi f

asking what that was all about? and
immediately I got a smile back from
her saying Oh, hes harmless! Thats

Hakik said he watched Lactawen
charm even the most stubborn self-cen-

repetitive stress injuries for workers,
Harding said. Ofcials want to make
sure the upgrades dont take away from
the traditional look of the library.
Plans for the remodel are to keep
with the historic style of the build-
ing, said Patty Anixter, the
Burlingame Library Foundations cap-
ital campaign chair. What will
change is the infrastructure.
Although the majority of the outside
of the building wont be modied, the
librarys ramp on the east side of the
building, off of the parking lot, will
be recongured to accommodate the
new automated materials check-in sys-
tem. The ramp will be closed from
mid-August until the end of
The process t o get an upgraded
l i brary has been a l ong one, sai d
Vi ce Mayor Terry Nagel , who i s
happy t he const r uct i on i s mov-
i ng forward.
The fundraising effort is going well
on behalf of the Library Foundation,
said Nagel. Weve been talking about
that for a long time.
The process was spearheaded by
Harding four years ago when she took
on her current role, transitioning from
her position as library services man-
ager. Community input helped shape
how the new library will look, she
I noticed when I became director
that spaces were underutilized, yet we
needed upgrades, she said. The fur-
nishings will be the same, but the idea
is you walk in and theres all these
services. People are asking for
more public spaces for startups and
incubators and our Wi-Fi is very fast.
The City Council has agreed to
pledge $2.5 million, while the library
foundation is charged with raising the
remaining $1 million through dona-
tions and public fundraising. So far
the library foundation has two-thirds
of the $1 million pledged or donated
since it began fundraising in
November 2013, Harding said.
The library will stay open during
renovations by doing the updates
oor by oor, starting with the upper
level and closing off one space at a
time, Harding said. Each floor will
take about three months, she said.
For those interested in giving con-
tributions, gifts of $1,000 or more
will be listed on the Burlingame
Library Wall of Honor. Gifts of
$5,000 or more include prominent
recognition and special tours. Gifts
above $10,000 include Honorary

This publicity helped orders pour
into the Pullman firm. The cars were
marketed as luxury for the middle
class. A year later, he built the
Delmonico, the worlds first sleep-
ing car with continental cuisine.
When he sought out people to do
this service, and he chose African-
Americans. They were to act as
porters, waiters, valets and enter-
tainers. This job became almost an
institution for the people who
accepted the jobs offered. Pullman
became the biggest single employer
of African-Americans in post-Civil
War America.
By 1875, Pullman had 700 cars in
operation. In 1887, Pullman devel-
oped the vestibule trains that
allowed passengers to walk the
entire length of the train.
In 1880, Pullman envisioned an
entire town of workers living
together with their own shopping
areas, churches, parks, hotels and
library. He bought 4,000 acres of
land south of Chicago and began
construction on this town named
Pullman. It was to be self-sustaining
so he charged money to live there.
He was almost dictatorial in running
this operation and, after a time, the
residents resented his handling of
the town so he had to sell it. This
occurred after manufacturing of cars
fell off in 1894 and he dictated that
the workers had to work longer for
less pay if he was to stay in busi-
ness. He didnt lower the price the
workers paid in his town and, after a
strike by the workers, he had to
divest himself of the city. It was
annexed to the city of Chicago.
George Pullman died at the age of
66 in1897 but the company kept
The Millbrae Historical Society
opened a train station museum on
October 2004 with Vern Bruce as
curator. Besides having a wonderful
train museum, Bruce was able to
locate a Pullman Passenger car from
Sioux Falls, South Dakota where it
was being used as a motel for
tourists. The car was so unaltered,
Bruce was able to put the car on the
train tracks and bring it back to
Millbrae. Its a Pullman Sleeping
Car named the Civic Center. It was
used by the train, the city of San
Francisco, and traveled from
Chicago to California before being
sold. The interior of the car needs
renovation and plans are underway
to do this. If you are interested in
volunteering to help in this project,
contact Bruce at (605) 333-1136.
The museum also has a 1929 Ford AA
heavy duty truck on display. It was
restored by David Hannigan. The
Railroad Museum is situated in the
old Millbrae train station
(California and Murchison drives)
near the BART station, along the
railroad tracks. You cant miss it. It
is open from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Saturdays. Dont miss it.

temper. If you become frustrated with everyone around
you, do something that will keep you occupied and out
of trouble. Its better to be safe than sorry.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You will be restless if you
have too much idle time. Plan an inexpensive outing.
Bowling, a nature walk, or a trip to an art gallery or
museum wont blow your budget.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) No matter what you
do, youll face opposition. Dont take criticism to
heart. Do the best you can, and refuse to engage with
someone looking for a ght.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Distance
yourself from interfering friends or relatives. If you
meddle, you will only aggravate lingering control
issues. Follow your heart and do your own thing to
bypass someones negativity.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Spend some time
and money on yourself or your surroundings. If you
are too giving to others, there may not be enough left
over for the things you need.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You will be taken
aback by some unanticipated changes in your living
arrangements. Dont overreact or become anxious. The
results are likely to turn in your favor as time passes.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) You will find fault
with everyone and everything today. Think before
you speak, or you will ostracize everyone around
you. Keep busy working on a creative endeavor that
brings you pleasure.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Be tolerant of family
members. Sometimes, the smallest issues can be
blown out of proportion if you are disagreeable. Keeping
the peace will prove to be in your best interest.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Inactivity will be your
downfall. Make alterations to your everyday routine
that will move you in a positive direction and help
you look and feel your best.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Traveling can be a
source of entertainment, excitement and adventure.
The more diverse your outlook, the easier it will be to
envision new possibilities and goals.

eve found a few ticks on our
dog this season. It seems they
are more prevalent around the
Bay Area due to the water shortage. And,
since they can transmit serious diseases,
you want to prevent bites. Spot-on med-
ications applied to your dogs fur are an
option. Your veterinarian can prescribe an
oral medication, a pill given monthly. You
can buy medicated shampoos and bathe
your dog more frequently or use a tick col-
lar, which can keep ticks away from your
dogs face and neck, common targets for
dogs who poke their noses around where
these nasty parasites live. The collar must
be relatively snug and make contact with
your dogs neck to be effective. Try the
two-nger test; you should just be able to
slip your rst two ngers between the col-
lar and his neck. Finally, you can also
look at tick powders and sprays. The
sprays are generally used just when you
plan to spend time outdoors in wooded
areas. Also, since even the best repellents
may not prevent ticks from latching onto
your dog, check him for ticks daily if you
take daily walks and excursions. Common
spots for ticks are between the toes, head
and neck, ears and armpits. If you nd
one, dont break out the matches and hold
a ame near the tick; this will cause it to
burrow deeper. Same story with nail pol-
ish and petroleum jelly. Simply, remove it
with tweezers. Grasp the tick as close to
your skin as possible and pull straight
out. Grip the ticks head, not the body.
The tick will likely still be alive when
you remove it. You can store it in a small
container of isopropyl alcohol. This will
kill it but preserve it should you need to
follow up with your vet and have the tick
tested for Lyme disease. You can also place
it in a small Ziploc bag in your freezer.

NEWYORK The monkey business is a
good business to be in at the box ofce.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes roared
to $73 million on its opening weekend,
one of the summers best debuts, according
to studio estimates Sunday. The 20th
Century Fox sequel easily surpassed the
$54.8 million opening to 2011s Rise of
the Planet of the Apes, the reboot of the
fabled chimp franchise.
In a summer heavy on hype but thin on
quality, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
has proven to be one of the few hits that
combined both spectacle and substance.
Directed by Matt Reeves (Clovereld),
the 3-D Dawn has drawn enthusiasm from
critics and moviegoers alike, particularly
for the motion-capture performance by
Andy Serkis as the lms lead ape, Caesar.
In the film, Caesars tribe suspiciously
encounters a colony of surviving humans
on a planet overrun by intelligent apes.
When you get the kind of reviews we got
and the audience actually agrees, its the
kind of rare thing where critics and audi-
ences come together and say this is a great
movie, said Chris Aronson, head of distri-
bution at Fox.
A sequel to be directed by Reeves is
already in the works to further extend the
franchise that first began with 1968s
Planet of the Apes, based on Pierre
Boulles French novel. Four movies fol-
lowed in the 1970s, as well as a failed 2001
reboot by Tim Burton.
But Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will
easily dwarf previous installments. It added
$31.1 million overseas from 26 markets, for
a global opening gross of $104.1 million.
If every summer movie had this kind of
release, that would be amazing, said Paul
Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for
box-office tracker Rentrak, praising the
lms intelligence, entertainment value and
marketing. It combines all the elements of
what a smart summer lm should be.
After two weeks on top, the Michael Bay
action sequel Transformers: Age of
Extinction slid to second with $16.5 mil-
lion. Its three-week domestic total is now
$209 million for Paramount. The Melissa
McCarthy comedy Tammy came in third
with $12.9 million. Though bad reviews have
dampened the response to McCarthys latest,
the relatively low-budget release has made
$57.4 million for Warner Bros. in two weeks.
The big opening for Dawn helped give
the summer box ofce a shot in the arm, but
it wasnt enough to stop an overall down-
ward trend. The weekends box ofce was
down nearly 24 percent from the correspon-
ding weekend last year, according to
Rentrak. The summer overall is down 20
percent from last year, which was a record
season for Hollywood.
Planet of the Apes thumps chest with $73M debut
Actor Andy Serkis is seen in his role as ape Caesar from the upcoming film Dawn of the Planet
of the Apes.
