Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula

Rents for homes in San Mateo County
have been sky high and experts arent see-
ing any sign this will slow down.
The average rent for an apartment in the
second quarter of 2014 was $2,470, up from
$2,360 in the rst quarter. The average one-
bedroom, one-bathroom apartment was
$2,238, up from $2,136 in the rst quarter.
The average occupancy rate was 95.1 per-
cent, up 1.4 percent from the same time last
year, according to RealAnswers, a group
that compiles apartment data. California
minimum wage is $9 per hour.
High rents arent unique to the Peninsula
though. In the second quarter of this year,
apartment rental rates in San Mateo County
were on par with San Francisco, Marin and
Santa Clara counties. The average rent in
San Francisco County was $3,229, while
the average rent in Santa Clara County was
$2,321 and Marin Countys average rent
was $2,231, according to RealAnswers.
Available rentals go quickly, said Sally
Navarro, a rental, sales and property man-
agement Realtor for AVR Realty in
Things are leasing off the shelves, she
said. We dont have a lot of inventory.
Were not really expecting things to change
soon; its still been really strong. If inter-
est rates go up in August, more people will
be looking to rent.
It is still harder to rent a house than an
apartment, she said. She showed a property

Essex purchases lot adjacent to Central
Park for eight-story apartment complex
By Samantha Weigel
The downtown San Mateo parking lot envisioned for an
eight-story residential complex across from Central Park
was purchased by Essex Property and Trust, Inc. for $10.35
million earlier this month.
Prior to securing the 1.2-acre site at the corner of East
Fifth Avenue and South San Mateo Drive, Essex turned in a
pre-application to the city proposing a 75-foot tall mixed-
use complex atop the current publicly accessible 95-space
surface parking lot.
The Essex at Central Park proposal received a fair amount
of pushback from neighboring residents who voiced con-
cerns about the loss of downtown parking, shadows and

The driver whose out-of-control
car sent a concrete garbage can y-
ing into a San Mateo pedestrian
who later died will not be retried for
vehicular manslaughter because the
deadlocked jury leaned so strongly
toward acquittal, prosecutors
announced Wednesday.
Instead, Josue Vicente Lopez,
28, is left facing up to three years
in prison for felony hit-and-run
which is the only count on which a
jury convicted in the Nov. 24,
2012, collision. Sentencing is
Sept. 12.
Chief Deputy
D i s t r i c t
Attorney Karen
Guidotti said
her ofce con-
sidered asking
Lopez to plead
no contest to a
mi sdemeanor
v e h i c u l a r
manslaughter charge to avoid a sec-
ond trial but ultimately decided that
the nature of the jurys split left a
different verdict unlikely.
Its not as if we have a bunch of
other evidence we could get in. The
evidence is what it is, Guidotti
The jury also split on a count of
misdemeanor child endangerment
charged because Lopez fled the
scene with his 5-year-old child in
the car.
The accident happened on the
1700 block of South Delaware
Street after the driver of a green
1994 Chevrolet Camaro later iden-
tied as Lopez reportedly lost con-
trol of the vehicle while speeding
out of the Kmart parking lot. The
car reportedly jumped the curb,
went onto the sidewalk and into a
cement garbage container that dis-
lodged and hit Aguiniga.
Authorities say Lopez checked on
Aguiniga after the crash but ed the
scene in his car with his 5-year-old
child. Responding police ofcers
found Aguiniga pinned between the
can and tree near a bus stop.
Aguiniga later died at the hospital.
Lopez told police he left the
scene because he was concerned
that his son would be caught in
deportation proceedings and want-
ed to take him home rst, accord-
ing to defense attorney John
Elworth was not available to
comment on the retrial decision.

failures by the Obama administra-
tion set the stage for the computer
woes that paralyzed the presidents
new health care program last fall,
nonpartisan investigators said in
testimony released Wednesday.
Behind the administrations
repeated assurances that consumers
across the land would soon have
seamless access to health care, a
chaotic procurement process was
about to deliver a stumbling start.
After a months-long investiga-
tion, the Government
Accountability Ofce found that
the administration lacked effec-
tive planning or oversight prac-
tices for the development of, the online portal
to coverage for millions of unin-
sured Americans.
As a result the government
incurred signicant cost increas-
es, schedule slips, and delayed
functionality, William Woods, a
GAO contracting expert, said in
testimony prepared for a hearing
Thursday by the House Energy and
Commerce Committee.
GAO is the nonpartisan inves-
tigative agency of Congress. Its
full report is also expected
Spokesman Aaron Albright said
the administration takes its
responsibility for contract over-
sight seriously and has already
started carrying out improvements
that go beyond GAOs recommen-
dations. The congressional inves-
tigators recommended a cost con-
trol plan and other changes to
establish clear procedures and
improve oversight.
Investigators found that the
administration kept changing the
contractors marching orders for
the website, creat-
ing widespread confusion and lead-
ing to tens of millions of dollars
in additional costs. Changes were
ordered in seemingly willy-nilly
fashion, including 40 times when
government ofcials did not have
the initial authority to incur addi-
tional costs.
The report faults the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services
which is part of the Department of
Health and Human Services for
ineffective oversight. The
Medicare agency, known as CMS,
was designated to administer
Obamas health care law.
Probe exposes flaws in rollout
Contractors were not given a
coherent plan, and instead they
were kept jumping around from
issue to issue.
The cost of the sign-up system
ballooned from $56 million to
more than $209 million from Sept.
2011 to Feb. 2014. The cost of the
electronic backroom jumped
from $30 million to almost $85
CMS, representing the
administration, failed to follow up
on how well the contractors
performed. At one point the
agency notied one contractor it
was so dissatised it would start
withholding payments. Then it
quickly rescinded that decision.
The type of federal contract that
the administration selected for was open-ended,
which may have encouraged
costly changes.

LOS ANGELES The rupture of a nearly
century-old water main that ripped a 15-foot
hole through Sunset Boulevard and turned a
swath of the University of California, Los
Angeles into a mucky mess points to the
risks and expense many cities face with
miles of water lines installed generations
The ooding sent more than 20 million
gallons of water cascading from a water
main in the midst of Californias worst
drought in decades and as tough new state
nes took effect for residents who waste
water by hosing down driveways or using a
hose without a nozzle to wash their car.
Much of the piping that carries drinking
water in the country dates to the rst half of
the 20th century, with some installed before
Theodore Roosevelt was in the White
Age inevitably takes a toll. There are
240,000 breaks a year, according to the
National Association of Water Companies, a
problem compounded by stress from an
increasing population and budget crunches
that slow the pace of replacement.
Much of our drinking water infrastructure
is nearing the end of its useful life, the
American Society of Civil Engineers said in
a report last year, noting that the cost of
replacing pipes in coming decades could
exceed $1 trillion.
The association of water companies says
nearly half of the pipes in the U.S. are in
poor shape, and the average age of a broken
water main is 47 years. In Los Angeles, a
million feet of piping has been delivering
water for at least 100 years.
When taps are running and swimming
pools are brimming, no one pays attention
to water lines, typically invisible under-
ground. But the country has reached a point
where vast lengths of pipe are wearing out at
about the same time, said Greg Kail of the
nonprofit American Water Works
Water pipes last a long, long time but
they dont last forever, he said. There is a
lot of pipe in the ground and there is an
enormous expense, collectively, in replac-
ing it.
The 30-inch pipe that burst Tuesday near
UCLAshot a 30-foot geyser into the air that
sent water down storm drains and onto cam-
pus. The pipe was still gushing 1,000 gal-
lons a minute on Wednesday and ofcials
said repairs could take another two days.
At its peak, water was gushing out of the
break in the riveted steep pipe at a rate of
75,000 gallons a minute. The amount of
water spilled could serve more than 100,000
Los Angeles Department of Water and Power
customers for a day.
The pipe had been worked on before.
While the cause of the break remained under
investigation, Mike Miller, a district super-
intendent for the city Department of Water
and Power, said the crack occurred near a
connection where the 93-year-old water
main joined a pipe installed in 1956.
The pipe must be dry for repair work to
begin, but on Wednesday leaky valves
above the break allowed water to continue
seeping in. Shutting off valves and pipes
creates the risk of more ruptures in the
7,200-mile system, especially on hilly
areas in and around campus.
Pipe break that flooded UCLA dumps 20M gallons
Workers push water down a set of stairs on the UCLA campus,which was ooded by a broken
30-inch water main in the Westwood section of Los Angeles.

Area expands for West
Nile fogging in San Mateo
San Mateo County mosquito offi-
cials fogged in San Mateo Wednesday
night after more mosquitoes tested
positive for West Nile Virus in the
94402 zip code area and expanded the
area to include the Shoreview
Neighborhood extending southeast to
the Foster City Lagoon.
The areas that were treated include
east of Highway 101, bordered loosely
by Beacon Avenue to the north,
Fashion Island Boulevard to the south
and Ocean View Avenue to the east.
Additionally, on the west side of
Highway 101, fogging took place
within an area bordered by East Fifth
Avenue to the north, Concar Drive to
the south and Palm Avenue to the west,
according to the San Mateo County
Mosquito and Vector Control District.
According to SMCMVD, the chemi-
cal to be used is Zenivex E4. This is an
oil-based formula that is EPAapproved
to be safe for use in an urban environ-
ment and there are no precautionary
measures that need to be taken by resi-
dents within the fogging area.
Garden vegetables should also be
thoroughly washed before consuming.
The San Mateo County Mosquito and
Vector Control District collected adult
mosquitoes that tested positive on
July 25.

enter a plea Thursday.
Chow has been in custody since his
arrest in April along with two dozen
others with ties to the community
organization he led.
He appeared briey Wednesday in
San Francisco federal court in mustard-
yellow jail garb with ve other defen-
dants in the sweeping public corrup-
tion case.
Outside court, Chows attorney J.
Tony Serra said there is nothing new in
the latest indictment. Serra said Chow
is innocent and is being wrongly
accused by investigators and prosecu-
tors who dont believe he has given up
his life as a gang leader.
Chow was previously sentenced to
20 years in prison for gang activity
and was released after serving less than
half of the sentence after testifying
against another gang gure.

MEXICO CITY California Gov.
Jerry Brown wrapped up a three-day
visit to Mexico on Wednesday, saying
he will work with the U.S. government
upon his return home to nd a long-
term solution to the immigration cri-
Ill work closely with the federal
government, who is responsible for
dealing with this difcult situation, and
I will make plain that California will
not hesitate to do what it can to help,
Brown said.
The governor came to meet with of-
cials and discuss
trade, investment
and environmental
cooperation, but
immigration took
center stage and he
added a meeting with
Roman Catholic
bishops to talk
about the surge in
unaccompanied chil-
dren trying to cross
the border, coming mainly from
Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.
Brown said California was willing to
shelter more migrant children if needed.
What is required is a serious plan of
investment in Central America in col-
laboration with Mexico and the United
States, and that requires cooperation of
Democrats and Republicans, Brown
said at a news conference with Mexican
Labor Secretary Alfonso Navarrete
The two announced a non-binding
agreement to come up with a pilot pro-
gram to educate Mexican temporary
farm workers who travel to California
about their rights and create a database
of those in Mexico recruiting U.S.-
bound, low-skilled workers.
The governor said his trip to Mexico
focused on improving Californias rela-
tionship with its southern neighbor.

WASHINGTON Eager to begin a month-
long break, Congress leavened its customary
heavy partisanship on Wednesday with a
pinch of compromise, advancing legislation
to repair the deeply troubled Department of
Veterans Affairs and working to clear funds
for highway construction at home and mis-
sile defense in Israel.
Yet old habits proved unbreakable less
than 100 days before elections with control
of Congress at stake. On a party-line vote of
225-201 Republicans pushed legislation
through the House authorizing an ofcial
lawsuit accusing President Barack Obama of
failing to enforce the health care law, deny-
ing they had impeachment in mind.
And gridlock loomed on the administra-
tions call for billions to cope with a surge in
young immigrants pouring into the U.S. ille-
gally from Central America.
Stop being mad all the time. Stop just hat-
ing all the time, Obama lectured lawmakers
from afar in Kansas City, Missouri, in a
speech that was particularly harsh on
Republicans. Come on. Lets get some work
done together.
There was a modest amount of progress on
compromise legislation during the day, and
hopes in both parties for considerably more
before a scheduled adjournment on Thursday.
On a vote of 420-5, the House over-
whelmingly approved a compromise bill
to clean up the scandal-soiled VA, where
some officials are accused of covering up
long delays in patient care. The $16.3 bil-
lion measure would allow veterans to get
outside care if they live too far from a VA
health facility or face a delay of longer
than 30 days in getting an appointment.
It also includes money to hire new doctors
and allows the fast-track ring of senior of-
cials found to be complicit in hiding agency
The legislation was a compromise between
the House and Senate one of few in the
Congress that convened 18 months ago
with less money than Democrats wanted and
a signicant concession from conservative
Republicans as well. It would raise federal
decits by $10 billion, one of very few times
since tea party-aligned lawmakers came to
power that the House has agreed to new
spending without also insisting on offset-
ting cuts elsewhere in the budget.
Concerns about future costs prompted the
conservative Club for Growth to oppose the
bill. It creates an unproven new entitlement
that sets taxpayers on a course to spend half
a trillion dollars over the next decade, the
organization said.
Congress cooperates,
fights as recess nears
A sharply divided House approved a Republican plan Wednesday to launch a campaign-season
lawsuit against President Barack Obama, accusing him of exceeding the bounds of his
constitutional authority. Are you willing to let any president choose what laws to execute and
what laws to change? asked House Speaker John Boehner.
Trafficking bust reveals
worries over missing kids
WASHINGTON The 168 juveniles
recovered last month during an FBI child
sex trafficking bust included some kids
who had never been reported missing, a
population that law enforcement encoun-
ters often and that child welfare advocates
say theyre especially concerned about.
Its hard to quantify the problem, espe-
cially since some children who are feared
missing turn up after a few hours or arent
gone for long enough to raise concerns
from guardians. But advocates say the
recent roundup and others like it reinforces
the need for a standardized approach to
report children as missing especially
those absent from state foster care sys-
tems who are most vulnerable to abuse.
State and federal efforts are underway to
streamline how police are alerted when
kids go missing.
Terror threats at
chemical plants underestimated
WASHINGTON The government is
underestimating the threat of a chemical
attack on Americas densely populated
cities and has failed to inspect virtually all
of the chemical facilities that it considers
particularly vulnerable to terrorists, con-
gressional investigators say.
The yearlong investigation by
Republican staff on the Senate Homeland
Security Committee paints a portrait of
inspection delays, government errors in
risk assessment and industry loopholes in
a $595 million terror prevention program
passed by Congress in 2006.
Coming a year after a massive explosion
at a West, Texas, fertilizer plant, the report
points to threats from the release of toxic
and flammable chemicals.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip Israeli
artillery shells tore through the walls of a
U.N. school crowded with sleeping war
refugees and back-to-back explosions
rocked a market filled with shoppers
Wednesday as Israels stepped up campaign
against Gazas Hamas rulers claimed at least
116 Palestinian lives.
After the strikes near the shopping area in
Gaza City, bodies lay scattered in the streets
as the wounded screamed for help. Where is
the ambulance? one man moaned as he lay
on the blood-soaked ground.
Some 3,300 Gazans seeking refuge from
the ghting had been crammed into the U.N.
school at the Jebaliya refugee camp when a
series of Israeli artillery shells hit before
daybreak, turning a classroom where fami-
lies had been sleeping into a tragic scene of
bloodied clothing, bedding and debris.
Assad Sabah said he and his ve children
were huddled under desks because of the con-
stant sound of tank re throughout the night
when suddenly mayhem struck.
We were scared to death, he said. After
4:30 a.m., tanks started ring more. Three
explosions shook the school. One class-
room collapsed over the head of the people
who were inside.
Palestinian health ofcials said at least
17 people were killed and 90 wounded in the
school attack the latest in a series of
strikes the United Nations says has hit U.N.
facilities that are supposed to be safe zones
in the 23-day-old war.
Where will we go next? wailed 56-year-
old Aishe Abu Darabeh, sitting dazed out-
side a classroom after the shelling. We ed
and they are following us.
Israels military said no U.N. facility had
been intentionally targeted during
Wednesdays operation, but troops had
responded to Hamas mortar re directed at
Israeli soldiers near the school.
However, the chief of the U.N. aid agency
for Palestinian refugees expressed anger
and indignation at Israeli forces firing
toward a U.N. facility even after being told
17 times, including just hours before the
shelling attack, that it was lled with civil-
Enough is enough, Pierre Kraehenbuehl
told the Associated Press, noting that six
U.N. schools have been hit since the ght-
ing began.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called the
school shelling outrageous and unjusti-
able, and demanded an immediate humani-
tarian cease-re.
Nothing is more shameful than attack-
ing sleeping children, the U.N. chief said.
At least 116 Palestinians were killed
Wednesday, including 16 in the shopping
area, while the overall Palestinian death
toll since July 8 climbed to 1,361, said
Palestinian health ofcial Ashraf al-Kidra.
The Israeli military said three of its sol-
diers were killed when a booby-trapped
house collapsed after they identified an
entrance to a Hamas tunnel inside. In all, 56
soldiers have been killed, as well as two
Israeli civilians and a Thai citizen.

MOSCOW U.S. and European sanctions
against Russias energy and nance sectors
are strong enough to cause deep, long-last-
ing damage within months unless Moscow
persuades the West to repeal them by with-
drawing support for Ukrainian insurgents.
The U.S. and European Union released
details Wednesday of new sanctions aimed at
hurting Russias economy without doing
undue damage to their own trade interests,
punishment for alleged Russian support for
Ukrainian rebels and Russias annexation of
the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea.
The sanctions go further than earlier
penalties which had largely targeted indi-
viduals by broadly limiting the trade of
weapons and of technology that can be used
in the oil and military industries. The EU
also put its capital markets off-limits to
Russian state-owned banks.
The bloc blacklisted three more compa-
nies and eight additional individuals, bring-
ing the total to 95 people and 23 entities
that have been hit with EU-wide asset
freezes and travel bans. They include three
close associates of President Vladimir
Putin: his former judo partner Arkady
Rotenberg, and the two largest shareholders
of Bank Rossiya; Yuri Kovalchuk and
Nikolai Shamalov.
Experts said the sanctions wouldnt have a
tremendous impact in the short term, but if
left in place for months will stie develop-
ment in the Russian economy and sap its
nancial sector. Already, economists have
revised downward their predictions for
Russian growth this year, with some saying
the country will go into recession.
The biggest immediate impact is likely to
come from the nancial sanctions. U.S. of-
cials said roughly 30 percent of Russias
banking sector assets would now be con-
strained by sanctions.
In a rst sign of concern, Russias central
bank said Wednesday that it would support
banks targeted by the penalties.
State-owned banks are the core of the
Russian banking system, said Vladimir
Tikhomirov, chief economist at nancial
services group BCS. He noted the banks are
already having trouble raising money. That
would mean their ability to lend to other
banks, smaller banks, is going to be more
restricted also.
Last year, about a third of the bonds issued
by Russias majority state-owned banks
7.5 billion euros ($10 billion) were
placed in EU nancial markets, according to
EU ofcials.
Thousands ee to
Tunisia to escape Libya fighting
TUNIS, Tunisia Up to 6,000 people a
day have fled Libya into neighboring
Tunisia this week, the Tunisian foreign min-
ister said Wednesday, the biggest influx
since Libyas 2011 civil war in a sign of the
spiraling turmoil as rival militias battle
over control of the airport in the capital
The weeks-long ghting is the worst vio-
lence seen in the Libyan capital since the
war. Nearly 100 people have been killed,
400 others wounded, and much of the airport
has been destroyed. Agiant re has been rag-
ing the past three days after shelling hit air-
port oil depots, forcing nearby residents to
evacuate, with reghters largely unable to
put it down because of clashes.
Many diplomats, including the U.S.
ambassador, have pulled out of the country.
With the interim government paralyzed, the
ghting threatens the planned opening ses-
sion of the newly elected parliament on Aug.
The violence is the latest chaos in a coun-
try where the central government, military
and security forces have had no control since
the ouster of Moammar Gadha in the 2011
civil war. Instead, rival militias have lled
the void, all with varying loyalties to local
commanders, some with Islamist ideologies,
while on the political front Islamist politi-
cians and their opponents have wrangled for
control of the government.
Tunisian Foreign Minister Monji Hamdi
did not give a full gure for the number of
Libyans who have entered the country in
recent days, but said they were coming at a
rate of 5,000 to 6,000 a day and that the rate
was increasing.

WASHINGTON The Obama administra-
tion condemned the deadly shelling of a
United Nations school in Gaza Wednesday,
using tough, yet carefully worded language
that reects growing White House irritation
with Israel and the mounting civilian casu-
alties stemming from its ground and air war
against Hamas.
The U.S. frustrations were compounded
by a urry of Israeli media reports this week
that appeared aimed at discrediting
President Barack Obama and Secretary of
State John Kerry, who spent days trying to
negotiate an unsuccessful cease-fire
between Israel and Hamas. In unusually
blunt language, a State Department spokes-
woman on Wednesday repeatedly described
one of the reports as complete crap.
The developments injected fresh tension
into the often fraught relationship between
Obama and the Israeli government, while
also highlighting the presidents willing-
ness to take a tougher line against the long-
time U.S. ally than some of his predeces-
sors or lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
While Obama and other top ofcials con-
sistently state their support for Israels
right to defend itself against Hamas rocket
re, the White House has been making
increasingly strong statements about the
Palestinian civilians dying in Israeli
attacks. Ofcials have also directly called

Israelis value lives
This letter is in response to the
heartfelt letter of Samia Shoman,
The universal, priceless value of
blood in the July 23 edition of the
Daily Journal.
The deaths of young children are
tragic occurrences irrespective.
However, her accusation that Israel
is to blame is sorely misguided. The
terrorist organization Hamas which
rules Gaza and which has fired over
2,000 rockets indiscriminately into
Israel and uses children and women
as human shields, yes children, is to
blame. They refused a call for a
cease-fire well before the Israeli
ground invasion which could have
prevented many Palestinian deaths.
For Hamas, the more Palestinian
deaths there are, especially women
and children, the better the propa-
ganda for them. Sanctity of life
means nothing to Hamas.
As for 10 minutes to seek shelter,
please help me and tell me which
army in the world gives a warning of
this sort; which army in the world
drops leaflets warning of an attack
and advises on the leaflet where
civilians can find sanctuary? Why?
Because sanctity of life means
everything to Israel.

Loss of life and prayers
When children are killed, it is
important to find out the reason for
it. Samia Shoman (July 23) and
Michael Traynor (July 30) write in
their letters about the death of
Palestinian children arising from the
war which exists between Hamas and
The charter of Hamas states that
Israel should be destroyed and all the
Jewish people should be killed.
Israel is fighting for its existence.
Israel is being subjected to thou-
sands of rockets being fired from
Gaza into heavily populated areas
with the intent to kill and terrorize
as many Jews as possible. They also
have created tunnels which extend
from Gaza to Israel which are used to
kidnap and kill Jewish citizens.
Children from Gaza have been used
as suicide bombers. After killing
Jewish people as well as them-
selves, the deceased are celebrated
by their mothers and others as being
martyrs and having streets, build-
ings and monuments named after
them. Israeli buses, restaurants and
schools have been bombed by
Hamas terrorists to kill as many
civilian Jewish people as possible.
In the present hostilities,
Palestinian families have been
ordered to remain in their homes
even after the Israeli government
has warned them that their home
will be bombed usually because it
is being used for military or terrorist
activities. Increased casualties are
used by Hamas for propaganda pur-

n San Mateo County, voters are
increasingly choosing to send
in their ballots by mail rather
than waiting in line at a precinct on
Election Day. In the last election, the
state primary on June 3, 75,522 of
97,447 ballots cast were by mail. Just
more than 56 percent of this countys
registered voters request to do so by
The reason is simple. Its conven-
ient. And it also saves money because
precincts dont have to be staffed with
election workers and there is less need
for couriers to deliver the ballots to
the Elections Ofce for counting. So
legislation by Assemblyman Kevin
Mullin, D-South San Francisco, to
include San Mateo County in a pilot
program for all-mail elections makes
a whole lot of sense.
The legislation, Assembly Bill
2028, is waiting to clear the Senate
oor in early August before making it
to the governor for his signature.
The legislation is simple and fol-
lows in the footsteps of another pilot
program for Yolo County. However,
this would provide for an urban coun-
ty to determine just how such a meas-
ure would work. We imagine it will
work just ne and, in fact, increase
voter participation. Currently, those
who choose to vote by mail request
their ballot to be mailed to them and
they can ll it out at their conven-
ience as long as it is received by the
Elections Ofce by Election Day.
Under this pilot program, all regis-
tered voters will receive ballots by
mail, which might increase participa-
tion for those who may not have
known an election was coming.
Postage would also be pre-paid.
If this legislation passes, the pilot
elections will not be for gubernatorial
or presidential elections in even
years, but rather odd-numbered elec-
tion years typically reserved for
municipal and district elections,
specically city councils and school
boards. Municipalities and districts
can choose to participate in up to
three elections before 2018 so an
ideal candidate would be November
2015 or November 2017 or any spe-
cial election. While most of the bal-
lots will be mailed, voters can also
drop off their ballots at specied loca-
tions in a city or district on Election
San Mateo County has a history of
success with all-mail elections. In
May 2011, a consolidated local all-
mail special election for a countywide
vote for District One supervisor saw
88,903 ballots cast, which is just a
shade lower than the number for the
most recent election. There were also
several school measures on that 2011
ballot, which saved those districts the
expense of their own special election.
There was no question about the valid-
ity of the vote or problems with
minority participation.
Once the pilot program is over, it
will be good to see it expand to
gubernatorial and presidential elec-
tions. Turnout is already typically
high for those elections but it would
also create cost savings.
Change is hard for some and the
idea for political parties of last-
minute get-out-the-vote drives is also
hard to let go. Those who run politi-
cal campaigns have also complained
about the split in the election cycle
between Election Day and when vote-
by-mail ballots are mailed to voters.
But that has been part of the political
calculus for some time now and our
system was not created to make it eas-
ier for political parties or campaign
managers. This legislation will
encourage voter participation, partic-
ularly for special and less popular
elections not anchored to a guberna-
torial or presidential campaign. The
expansion of this pilot program to
include San Mateo County will pro-
vide key data in moving the idea
along for further exploration by other
counties. It is progress. It is smart. It
is efcient. It is time.
Its time to move to voting by mail
One fine day
K, fine. The water hogs of California refuse
to cut down on their showers or stop mind-
lessly watering the dying lawn so the state is
trying to hit them where it hurts: the wallet.
Taking a cue from that best of organization training
manuals, the movie Roadhouse Be nice until its
time to not be nice the state is no longer asking
residents politely to stop with the water waste and is
instead setting the stage for fining violators.
The State Water Resources Board approved fines up
to $500 earlier this
month and this week
they started in certain
areas. Guess we
should have all taken
to heart that guberna-
torial request to vol-
untarily curb water
use by 20 percent. In
fact, water use in May
actually increased 1
percent. Drought?
What drought? The
carrot didnt work.
Now its time for the
st i ck.
The board will mon-
itor local water agencies to make sure they are up to
snuff but for individual scofflaws it is relying on the
The challenge, obviously, will be getting people to
narc on each other. Nobody wants to be that guy or
girl. You know, the one that always told Mom what
you did while she ran to the store or fessed up the sen-
ior prank conspirators under very little pressure from
the principal. These are the people who think the
Spare the Air days are great and have no problem turn-
ing in the person down the street with smoke billow-
ing from the chimney on Christmas morning. These
are the people youd never want to have as friends and
never want to personally be. To steal a popular bit of
newsroom wisdom, snitches get stitches.
What they should get, however, is a piece of that
$500 fine. If the state really wants folks to tattletale
on the person hosing down the driveway it needs to
offer a green incentive and stop relying on the naive
idea the public will do the right thing. We might like
to think that humans act out of the goodness of their
heart but the truth is a tad bit greedier.
Not that greed is a bad thing when used to propel
information or change. Think about when the bad
guys rob a bank and law enforcement needs help iden-
tifying the suspects. What do they do? They offer a
reward. Akitty goes missing and the distraught owner
is desperate for a safe return? Reward! Even tech com-
panies are getting into the game when they need a few
good coders and engineers. Reward, although it might
be better labeled a finders fee.
Point is, the state would be better off turning the
violation fine into a bounty rather than fattening its
own bottom line.
Just imagine, money-hungry people wouldnt just
take notice of the home car washers and diligent lawn
irrigators. Instead, theyd actively seek out anybody
whose grass is anything brighter than beige or whose
sprinklers whirl into the gutter. Roaming groups of
enforcers like some sort of aquatic Guardian Angels
will kick butt and take names. Mercenaries will throw
back a little liquid courage, strap on the forehead
flashlights and get to work.
Granted, this might cause an uptick in police
reports of home invaders and Peeping Toms
Officer, Im only checking to see if they keep the
tap running while brushing their teeth! Cite them, not
me! but is privacy really more important than the
parched Earth?
The drought isnt going to take care of itself any
time soon so its up to the state to take care of those
who do its monitoring job. In this situation, kind-
ness is not its own reward.

NEW YORK A cheerful report on
the U.S. economy, rising prots and
no surprises from the Federal Reserve
left the stock market nearly where it
started on Wednesday.
The news was nearly all good. The
government said that the economy
grew at a robust 4 percent annual rate
this spring. Later in the day, the
Federal Reserve did exactly what
investors expected. It scaled back its
support for the economy, while pledg-
ing to keep short term interest rates
low for a considerable time after it
stops buying bonds.
Traders sold U.S. government
bonds, pushing the 2-year Treasury
note to 0.56 percent, the highest level
this year. Its a clear sign bond traders
think an improving economy will

their hands.
Good news is getting to be bad
news again, said Jack Ablin, chief
investment officer at BMO Private

good news, so why are stocks off?
Because people are wondering when
the party will come to an end.
The Standard & Poors 500 index

The Fed announced plans to make
further cuts to its monthly bond pur-
chases, a program launched after the
nancial crisis to encourage borrow-
ing and spending. At the current pace
of cutbacks, the Feds bond purchases
will end in October.
Most economists expect that the Fed
could start raising rates next year as
the economy improves.
A strong report on the economy is
always good news for the stock market
over the long haul, said Darrell Cronk,
Deputy Chief Investment Ofcer for
Wells Fargo Wealth Management. In
the near term, though, investors are
bound weigh any good news against a
possible interest-rate move from the
Federal Reserve.
Id love to get back to where what
matters most for the market is the
economy not what the latest read is on
the Fed, Cronk said.

Stocks flatten out after Fed news
By Martin Crutsinger
WASHINGTON The U.S. economy
has rebounded with vigor from a grim
start to 2014 and should show renewed
strength into next year.
That was the general view of ana-
lysts Wednesday after the government
estimated that the economy grew at a
fast 4 percent annual rate in the April-
June quarter. Consumers, businesses
and governments joined to fuel the
second-quarter expansion. The govern-
ment also said growth was more robust
last year than it had previously esti-
Whether the healthier expansion
will lead the Federal Reserve to raise
interest rates sooner than expected is
unclear. The Fed will issue a statement
later Wednesday after ending a policy
The economy sprang back to life
after a dismal winter in which it shrank
at a sharp 2.1 percent annual rate. The
government upgraded that gure from a
previous estimate of a 2.9 percent
drop. But it was still the biggest con-
traction since early 2009 in the depths
of the Great Recession.
Last quarters bounce-back reinforced
analysts view that the economys
momentum is extending into the sec-
ond half of the year, when they forecast
annual growth of around 3 percent.
The government also updated its
estimates of growth leading into this
year. They show the economy expand-
ed in the second half of 2013 at the
fastest pace in a decade and more than
previously estimated. The revised data
also show that the economy grew
faster in 2013 than previously esti-
mated, though more slowly in 2011
and 2012 than earlier thought.
The second quarters growth in the
gross domestic product the total
output of goods and services was the
fastest since a 4.5 percent increase in
July-September quarter of 2013.
At the same time, a higher trade
decit slowed growth as imports out-
paced an increase in exports.
Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. econo-
mist at Capital Economics, said that
given last quarters rebound, hes
boosting his estimate for growth this
year to 2 percent, up from a previous
1.7 percent forecast. Ashworth said
the economys growth also supported
his view that the Fed will be inclined
to start raising rates early next year.

3Doodler is fun but quirky 3-D pen
NEWYORK 3-D printing is all the rage. You can hit a
button on your computer, which sends a le to a printer,
which produces a small 3-D object out of plastic. Its a cool
technology, but its not exactly a hands-on way to make
Enter the 3Doodler: the pen that turns you into the 3-D
The $99 3Doodler, made by Boston-based startup
Wobbleworks, is a fat pen not unlike a hot glue gun. It
needs to be plugged into a wall outlet. A stick of plastic
goes in on the blunt end and comes out, melted, at the tip.
As you move your hand, it leaves a thin trail of cooling,
solidifying plastic. Move it around with a plan, laying
down string upon string, and an object starts taking shape.
Its easy to get started. Within a few hours, I made a few
rings, an unusable but cute eggcup, and a three-inch sculp-
ture of a walking man. I made shoes for my daughters
Barbie by coating the dolls feet in plastic. They were pop-
ular until they broke a few minutes later.
The nished objects have a unique and intriguing look to
them theyre all reminiscent of a jumble of fused plastic
wire. But its very hard to make anything durable or useful
this way. The company behind the 3Doodle recommends
making paper clips as one of the rst exercises, and sure,
youll have paper clips, but theyll be the most fragile
paper clips youve ever seen. Bending clips from steel wire
would be a much better way to go, if you really need paper
Its fun to work with plastic, though. Plastic has, so far,
not been a do-it-yourselfers material. You can whittle
wood, machine metal, and mold clay. But plastic, that near
ubiquitous material, has been out of reach. Thats a pity,
because its pretty cute. Its light, colorful and easy to
shape. Its too bad its so fragile.
There are two types of plastic available. Polylactide or
PLA is made from corn and is biodegradable. It comes in
several colors, including attractive translucent ones. I
found it the easiest material to work with. Acrylonitrile
butadiene styrene, or ABS, is opaque and more exible.

Given the way the

plausible answer is
the last one because
the Giants are more
than one move away from assuring them-
selves a spot in the playoffs. Giants
fans, unfortunately, will be forced to grit
their teeth and hope the team, as is more
or less currently constructed, can gure it
out. There is no magic pill out there that

There has been noise they need to

problem is along with costing way
too much the Giants pitching hasnt

The Stanford Girls Water Polo Club is
gearing up for the National Junior Olympics
spanning 34 pools around the Peninsula
beginning with Thursdays opener at
Serras Aquatics Center at noon.
The Stanford Club 18-and-under A-team
includes several San Mateo County stand-
outs, including recent graduates from
Burlingame, Carlmont, Sacred Heart Prep
and St. Francis. The tourney, which con-
cludes with Sundays championship round,
will serve as the last go-around for many of
the swimmers, some of whom have been on
roster with Stanford Club since swimming
at the 12-and-under level.
Stanford Club 18A head coach Kyle
Utsumi has helmed this particular group of
girls for four years, including two previous
seasons at the 16-and-under level. Having
coached at the club since 1994, Utsumi pre-
viously served as head coach of the girls
water polo team at Menlo School from
1997 to 2005, during which time the
Knights won league championships in each
of his nine seasons and also captured three
Central Coast Section titles. He currently
serves as an assistant coach for Stanford
womens water polo.
We feel like were able to compete with
all the best teams in the country, Utsumi
said of the 18A club squad. The way [the
Club Junior Olympics] are set up, youll
meet strong teams very early. And were
looking to give every team a great game and
improve throughout the tournament so as to
raise our level as the stakes get higher.
The team is fresh off of competing in a
midseason tune-up at the U.S. Club
Championships at Capistrano Valley High
School in Orange County held July 11-13.
Stanford Club 18A had one of its best
showings in team history, taking third
place after posting a 4-2 record through the
three-day event, culminating in a 9-7 loss
to 680 Water Polo in the consolation
championship game.
This performance was our best in recent
history, Utsumi said. It was really impor-
tant for our athletes to reach the nal four
and compete, and we had wins over several
of the perennially strong clubs from
Southern California. To break through
and have a series of wins was really impor-
tant for our team.
Stanford Club featured some dramatics
against a contingent of Southern California
teams with a pair of comebacks victories
while sweeping through three games of
pool play. The team opened with a 10-6 win

OAKLAND Oakland Raiders owner Mark
Davis conrmed he has met with San Antonio
ofcials but declined to disclose whether he
has any interest in relocating the franchise to
Former San Antonio mayor Henry
Cisneros is a friend, and Henry suggested I
take the opportunity to meet with some city
ofcials while I was in town, Davis said in a
statement Tuesday night. I have nothing fur-
ther to discuss on the topic.
The San Antonio Express-News reported
that Davis met on July 18
with Cisneros, then-
Mayor Julian Castro, City
Manager Sheryl Sculley
and the president of the
San Antonio Chamber of
Commerce to discuss
potentially moving the
Raiders from Oakland to
San Antonio.
The newspaper said
Sculley issued a memo to the City Council on
Tuesday elaborating on the meeting.
I was asked to meet two weeks ago with the
owner of the Oakland Raiders, Mark Davis,
and members of his staff. Mr. Davis has
expressed interest in a possible relocation of
his NFL team to San Antonio and we are
engaged in preliminary due diligence, she
wrote, according to the Express-News. The
agenda for this visit included a tour of the
Alamodome and meetings with local business
The newspaper reported that the
Alamodome could serve as a temporary home
until a new stadium is built for the Raiders.
The Raiders are in the nal season of their
lease in Oakland. Davis has said that his pref-
erence is to build a new stadium on the current
Coliseum site, which has been further compli-
cated by the recent 10-year lease agreement by
the Athletics to remain in Oakland. But the As
agreement includes a provision to allow the
Raiders to knock down the Coliseum for a new
football stadium.
Davis told the Bay Area News Group by
phone Tuesday night that he was in San
Antonio with close friend and former Raiders
wide receiver Cliff Branch, who was being
inducted into a local hall of fame.
Any move now would require approval from
24 of the 32 NFLowners.

SAN FRANCISCO Jean Machi and the
San Francisco Giants ended their six-game
losing streak in the most wacky way. They
dont care how it happened, any break is
welcome these days.
A timely, heads-up glance by Machi
helped San Francisco take advantage of a
huge baserunning blunder by Pittsburgh,
and the Giants tagged out of two runners
who wandered away on the same play to beat
the Pirates 7-5 Wednesday.
Just like we drew it up, right? second
baseman Joe Panik quipped. We got lucky
with that one. Everything happened so
quick. Almost like Little League, a rundown,
playing a game of Pickle.
San Francisco stopped a skid that matched
its longest of the season, and avoided the
clubs rst winless homestand of at least
seven games in the 15-year history of AT&T
The Pirates, who had won three in a row,
led 5-4 in the sixth when Chris Stewart drew
a one-out walk with runners on second and
Machi (6-0) got the ball back from the
catcher and noticed Travis Snider had left
second base, apparently thinking it was a
bases-loaded walk.
Absolutely! It was 100 percent mental
error on my part, Snider said. Offensively,
we could have made something happen.
Honestly, I was thinking about getting to
third base and if he walked Id get to third.

receiver and All-America kick
returner Ty Montgomery said hes
in the nal stages of his rehabilita-
tion from right shoulder surgery and
hopes to play in the opener against
UC Davis on Aug. 30.
Montgomery said Wednesday he
played through the shoulder injury
part of last season before having
surgery in February. He also hurt a
knee in the Cardinals loss to
Michigan State in the Rose Bowl,
an injury he said was minor.
Montgomery said hes already
lifting weights, running routes and
catching passes. He said hes just
waiting for team doctors to clear
him for contact drills.
Whenever they tell me I can
play, Im ready to play,
Montgomery said.
Montgomerys self-diagnosis at
Bay Area College Football Media
Day at the 49ers new stadium
sounded more optimistic than what
Cardinal coach David Shaw said last
week. Shaw said at Pac-12 media
days in Los Angeles that
Montgomery would probably sit
out the season opener and is ques-
tionable for Stanfords home game
against Southern California on
Sept. 6.
Shaw stuck by that statement
Wednesday, but he also said
Montgomery might not miss any
games. He said team doctors will
make the decision on when
Montgomery plays.
I never follow the direction of
the player. I always follow the
direction of the doctors, Shaw
said. Well see. Tys ahead of
schedule. Hes ahead of schedule.
Hes a phenomenal athlete. And if
hes ready to go Game 1 and the doc-
tors say, You know what, hes at
limited risk for re-injury, lets let
him go play, Im all for it.
Theres no babying football
players, Shaw added. If Tys ready
to go, hes returning kickoffs, hes
playing the game. If hes not, well
hold him off. I dont have an issue
with that.
Montgomery missed spring prac-
tices because of his shoulder injury
and is expected to be limited at the
beginning of training camp, which
begins Monday.
Montgomery had a breakout sea-
son as a junior, leading Stanford in
receptions (61), yards receiving
(958) and touchdown catches (10).
He also had 1,091 yards and two
TDs returning kicks to earn rst-
team All-America honors.
Shaw compared Montgomery to
former wide receivers Tim Brown
and Irving Fryar, both of whom he
saw as an NFLassistant. But he also
admitted those comparisons to
Montgomery at this stage of his
development are unfair.
Shaw recognizes what
Montgomery means to Stanfords
offense. He said Montgomery has
been clocked at 4.42 in the 40-yard
dash and his physical skills are off
the charts.
The key is keeping him healthy.
Montgomery was sidelined as a
sophomore for some of the 2012
season when he partially tore a pos-
terior cruciate ligament in his knee.
He nished with just 26 catches for
213 yards and no touchdowns as
Stanford was transitioning quarter-
As a freshman, Montgomery

bases. But Tuivailala bounced back
to strike out Brian Humphries and
Trevor Story consecutively to end
the inning.
Springeld jumped out to a 3-2

ing Tuivailala the pitcher of record
in an eventual 7-2 victory. Former

ORLANDO, Fla. A report
released Wednesday on the NCAA
and its member schools shows
fewer women holding jobs in col-
lege sports and only a small
improvement in racial diversity.
The report, released Wednesday
by The Institute for Diversity and
Ethics in Sport, gave college
sports a B grade for racial hiring
practices and a C-plus for gender
hiring. The racial score of 82.3
points in 2013 increased from 81
points in 2012, while the gender
score decreased from 81.3 points
in 2012 to 75.9 in 2013.
College sports has the lowest
grade for racial hiring, and only
ranks higher than the NFLfor gen-
der hiring, among all college and
professional leagues in the study.
The Institute also produces report
cards on the NBA, WNBA, Major
League Baseball and Major League
I think that this is an example
of where college sport has failed,
said TIDES director Richard

the report. Its unfortunate that it
comes at a time when so much is
going on in college sports and so
much change is coming about. Of

racial and gender personnel data at

It covers the 2011-2012 and
2012-2013 academic years. It also
includes information for confer-

Some of the most glaring gender
deciencies Lapchick noted were
in the key leadership positions
inside conference ofces and in
university athletic departments.
All 11 FBS conference commis-
sioner posts continue to be held

The number of female presidents
at the 125 FBS schools increased
from 18 in 2012 to 19 in 2013,
and the number of female confer-
ence commissioners in Division I
from six to seven.
The same was true among athlet-
ic directors, where women showed
small gains at the Division I and
Division II levels.
But among associate athletic
directors, one of the feeder jobs to
athletic director, the numbers
remained mostly stagnant.
In Division I, women occupied
29.5 percent (499) of associate
athletic director jobs, 41.8 per-
cent (125) in Division II and 51

HOUSTON In the rst inning against
Houston, Jason Hammel picked up right
where he left off since coming to the Oakland
That was not good.
Hammel gave up six runs in the rst, strug-
gling with his command and Oakland lost 8-1
to the Astros on Wednesday.
The Athletics are searching for the pitcher
they thought they acquired from the Cubs, and
so is Hammel.
Theres not much to explain; you can see it
all for yourself, he said. Im a completely
different pitcher. Just keep making the same
mistakes over and over. Right now it doesnt
look to good but its a long season and Ive
been through this before.
Hammel (0-4) has made four starts since the
As acquired him with pitcher Jeff Samardzija
from the Cubs earlier this month. Hammel
was 8-5 before the trade.
He had trouble getting the ball down
again and in the next couple of innings when
he got the ball down he was effective, As
manager Bob Melvin told reporters. Thats
where the movement takes over, the down-
hill plane and everything that makes him
successful. And he had a tough time nishing
guys off when he was ahead.
Melvin said he expects Hammel to make
his next start.
Hammels day ended in the fth when
Jonathan Singleton hit his eighth home run.
Dallas Keuchel pitched a four-hitter for
Houston and Robbie Grossman homered to
cap the six-run rst.
Keuchel (10-7) pitched his fourth complete
game of the season, tying Dodgers ace Clayton
Kershaw for the major league lead. And the
Astros, 20 games under .500, won the series
from the ALWest-leading Athletics.
(The As) do a lot of things well, Keuchel
said. To get a complete game and get a win is
something special in its own right.
Marc Krauss beat out Oaklands try for a dou-
ble play in the rst, and the Astros went on to
match a season high for runs in an inning.
Keuchel struck out ve and walked three.
Manager Bo Porter lauded Keuchels
plus-command and willingness to use his
secondary pitches. As he mixed his pitches
up, Keuchel kept he As guessing and forc-
ing the type of contact that can make for a
good day.
Josh Donaldson hit his 23rd homer for
Oaklands only run.
Krauss hustled for an RBI grounder that
kept the rst inning going. After Singleton
walked, Matt Dominguez singled home a
run, and another scored when center elder
Billy Burns bobbled the ball.
Ill tell you, I think the biggest play of
the game was Jason Castro going hard into
second base and Marc Krauss absolutely
giving the effort in which he gave getting
down the line, Porter said. Thats the way
the game is supposed to be played. To both
of those guys credit, they did a tremendous
job in that situation.
Carlos Corporan added an RBI single and
Grossman, a late addition for the ill Chris
Carter, homered into the right-eld seats.

Outelder Coco Crisp missed his fourth
game in a row with a neck strain. Melvin said
the club will know more about his condition
when it returns home, but said Crisp wouldnt

Altuve extends streak, Cespedes ends
With his line drive single in the sixth
inning Jose Altuve ran his hitting streak to
12 games tying his season high. Yoenis
Cespedes was unable to continue his streak of
games with an RBI, going 0 for 4 and ending
his run six.

Thats obviously not what you want to
happen when you have rst open. I take
ownership for that mistake.
Machi threw to shortstop Brandon
Crawford to trap Snider. Crawford returned
the ball to Machi, who red to third base-
man Pablo Sandoval to get Gaby Sanchez as
he strayed off the bag.
You dont see that very often. We got a
break there, manager Bruce Bochy said. I
havent seen that. He mustve thought the
bases were loaded, going to third.
Gregor Blanco hit a tying single in the
seventh, and a passed ball by Stewart later
in the inning put the Giants ahead. Justin
Wilson (3-2) took the loss.
Santiago Casilla, San Franciscos fth
reliever after Tim Lincecums short start,
earned his eighth save in 11 chances.
Jordy Mercer hit a two-run homer in the
fourth and Josh Harrison also connected for
the Pirates. But the blunder on the bases left
manager Clint Hurdle bafed.
You know, I have a buddy and we always
talk about how if you watch enough games
youll continually see something you have
never seen before, he said. Unfortunately,
thats the rst time Ive seen us walk into a
double play.
Bochy met with slumping Crawford
before the game about tweaking his hitting
mechanics, then moved him up to the No. 2
hole. Crawfords single started a three-run
rst on a day the Giants runs were more than
the six they had total in the previous six
Harrisons pop
Harrisons ninth home run was his fourth
longball in as many games. The Pirates
have nine homers in their last ve games.
We call it game-time pop, Hurdle said.
Susacs rst hit
Andrew Susac recorded his rst career hit
and RBI in the third for San Francisco.
Starting at catcher as Buster Posey played
rst base, Susac was 0 for 5 in four games
before his single. He was promoted Saturday
from Triple-A Fresno with Hector Sanchez
out because of a concussion.
Its awesome. I cant explain how it
feels, he said.
And the ball from his hit? I think my dad
earned it.
On his 57th birthday, Hurdle offered: All
I want for my birthday is another birthday.
Im good now and could go out tomorrow
and have no regrets.
Trainers room
Pirates: Outelder Starling Marte needs
more time to recover on the concussion list

Tuesday, then had a recovery day
Wednesday. He is likely to need a rehab
Gi ants: Bochy is optimistic of getting
rst baseman Brandon Belt back from a con-
cussion as soon as this weekend against the
Mets in New York, while center elder Angel
Pagan could play in a rehab game in the next
couple of days in Arizona as he returns from

was being re-evaluated Wednesday as he
tries to recover from an elbow injury in his

general manager Brian Sabean would have
to trade away the very pieces that make the
Giants competitive in the rst place.
As far as Im concerned, there are only
three denite bats that need to be in the
lineup. Afourth has shown me enough he
should be in there as much as possible as
well. Right elder Hunter Pence and third
baseman Pablo Sandoval, along with
catcher/rst baseman Buster Posey are the
core of the offense right now. You can add
left elder/rst baseman Michael Morse to
the lineup as well and, while his recent
power slump has been troubling, at least it
means he had a power surge at some point
this season which is more than the rest
of the lineup can say.
As for the rest of the Giants everyday
lineup? They can go.
When will people start putting the
screws to shortstop Brandon Crawford,
who still hasnt gured it out at the plate
yet. Hes shown occasional pop this sea-
son, but his average has steadily plummet-
ed since the rst month of the season. In
addition, a supposed Gold Glove candidate,
Crawford has had his struggles defensively
as well.
Second base has been a black hole since
Brandon Hicks nally came back to earth.
Marco Scutaro, who the Giants signed to a
two-year extension, has done a spot-on
Freddy Garcia impression. Scutaro is done.
Joe Panick is still not ready for Major
League pitching and lets give Dan Uggla a
chance. Cant blame the Giants woes on a
guy who has been here a week.
Gregor Blanco, lling in for the again-
injured Angel Pagan, should be forced to do
10 pushups every time he swings from his
heels, a la Willie Mays Hays in Major
League. Blanco is just the latest in a long
line of small outelders who thinks hes
Barry Bonds, joining the likes of Marvin
Bernard and Armando Rios guys who
showed a little pop and suddenly thought
they were home run hitters.
Hector Sanchez has been a bust as
Poseys backup, as far as the bat is con-
cerned, utility inelder Joaquin Arias has
done nothing offensively, and Brandon
Belt, who got off to a good start, has been
injured the better part of two months now.
Thats just way too many holes to try and
patch by Sabean, without trading away
what is left of the farm system and most of
what makes this team dangerous in the rst
Sabean will make a couple smaller moves
to shore up the bench or nd a serviceable
second baseman, but as team president
Larry Baer said on KNBR a couple weeks
ago, the cavalry is not coming to save the
Giants season.
If they are to make the playoffs, the
Giants are going to have to dance with who
they brung. So buckle up Giants fans, its
going to be a rocky ride through the end of
the season.

SANTA CLARA San Francisco wide
receiver Anquan Boldin laughs a big,
hearty guffaw and shakes his head.
When asked about Brandon Lloyd, Boldin
said no one could accurately mimic what the
once and present 49ers receiver does while
watching lm.
Lloyds unique approach to watching lm
has made an impression on his new team-
Lloyd, who sat out last season after 11 years
in NFL, imitates ways to run his routes even
while watching lm.
Sometimes hell stand up to mime moves,
all the while talking to myself.
Hes entertaining in that regard, Boldin
said Wednesday. You see him go through the
rep in the media room. He is animated.
Boldin, a 12-year veteran in the league, said
hes never seen anything like it.
When he sees himself on lm with a defen-
sive back in front of him, hes acting it out,
said Boldin, who caught
85 passes for 1,179 yards
last year.
On the eld he doesnt
look like he took a year
off. You can see how
smooth he is, how he
strides and how he makes
his cuts.
Lloyd, who began his
career with the 49ers in
2003, has not only been entertaining, hes
set a good example for the rest of the receivers
in his production through the rst week of
training camp.
Hes been the most productive of a deep
group of wide receivers that also includes vet-
erans Stevie Johnson, Michael Crabtree,
Kassim Osgood, David Reed and Jon Baldwin.
The thing about being that deep and hav-
ing so much talent, no one is allowed to take
a day off, Boldin said. We have to come out
and keep competing.
San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh was sur-
prised and excited when he witnessed Lloyds
routine for the rst time.
The rst thing I thought was Whoa do I
like that! he said. Then I thought, why did-
nt I do that? Its one of the neatest things
Ive ever seen. It makes me giddy to watch
him do it. Its awesome.
Harbaugh, who spent 14 years as an NFL
quarterback before entering the coaching pro-
fession, said hes never seen anything like it
as well.
He has that full speed mentality and is 100
percent engaged in meetings, Harbaugh said.
We have made friends almost right off the
bat. Hes the kind of guy I can connect with.
Harbaugh also likes the way hes been prac-
He does not show signs of, I guess its
rust, he said. He looks young and spry.
NOTES: Harbaugh said theres no
timetable on the return of RB LaMichael
James, who suffered a dislocated left elbow
during Sundays practice. Hes had the injury
before, Harbaugh said. Im hopeful, so Im
going with LaMichaels estimation. James
expects to be back in time for the regular sea-
son. . The 49ers remembered Hall of Fame
coach Bill Walsh with photo tribute on
Twitter on the seventh anniversary of his
passing. ... With James and RB Kendall
Hunter out, the 49ers are looking to sign
another running back, though Harbaugh
thinks veteran Frank Gore and rookie Carlos
Hyde are more than capable of handling the
bulk of the running game. Past performance
often predicts future success, Harbaugh said
of Gore. Hes been one of the top running
backs in the NFL. He studies football and
understands football. He gets it. Carlos Hyde
gets football similar to Frank Gore. Its natu-
ral for him. ... LB Aldon Smith was not in
camp Wednesday. Hes going through a
process, Harbaugh said. Smith was scheduled
to meet with Los Angeles authorities regard-
ing his alleged role in making a bomb threat
to the LAX airport and he was also scheduled
to meet with Roger Goodell about a possible

Sports brief
over Rose Bowl Water Polo Club,
and closed Day 1 play with a tight
6-4 victory over Huntington
Beach Water Polo Club.
On Day 2, Stanford Club won
10-9 over Xtreme Water Polo in
dramatic fashion. Entering the
nal minute tied at 9-9, Stanford
Club executed a scripted play to
recent Sacred Heart Prep graduate
Morgan McCracken. McCracken
drew a foul and hammered home the
game-winning goal with a cross-
cage penalty shot.
The win propelled Stanford Club
into the playoff round, in which
the team downed Saddleback-El
Toro Water Polo 8-5. In the semi-
nals, however, Stanford Club fell
short of an epic comeback with a
9-8 loss to SoCal Water Polo.
Trailing 9-3 at the start of the
fourth quarter, Stanford Club
resorted to a hard press and rallied
for ve unanswered goals, paced
by several goals from Caroline
Anderson, but fell just shy of a
berth in the championship game.
We needed about one more
minute and I believe we could have
taken the lead, Stanford Club
defender Niki Reynolds said. But
it was a great game.
Reynolds a recent
Burlingame grad who is set to play
at UCLAin the fall came up with
a clutch defensive save to keep
SoCal off the scoreboard in the
fourth quarter. In attempting to
discourage a shot late in the quar-
ter, Reynolds produced a block to
send the crowd into a frenzy.
One of the new editions to the
Stanford Club 18A squad this sea-
son, Reynolds joined the club last
season after transitioning from
the Burlingame Aquatics Club. The
left-hander proved to be one of
stars of the Stanford Club 18-and-
under B-team last summer in a
bronze-medal performance at the
Club Junior Olympics.
That was a big deal, Utsumi
said. As her rst year on the club,
she played a big role on that team
with her speed, and her awareness,
and her ability to play great
defense. I consider that really
important for her, because she
played at a high level and reached
games that were very meaningful.
She brought that experience
right into the A-group this year.
Aclub swimmer since the age of
6, Reynolds discovered water polo
her freshman year at Burlingame;
and she did so quite reluctantly. It
was her father, Marc, who recom-
mended she go out for the team.
So, Reynolds landed on the Lady
Panthers frosh-soph squad and
took an immediate liking to the
rigorous sport.
I ended up loving it, Reynolds
said. I love swimming, but swim-
ming got a little boring for me,
just going back and forth. Ive
always been an aggressive, com-
petitive person. So, I could wres-
tle people in the water while swim-
ming. I was like, I love this.
The following season, Reynolds
moved up to the varsity squad. One
of three sophomores on the team,
she was the only starting under-
classman for the perennial CCS
contender. During her sophomore
campaign, Reynolds played with
Burlingame senior standout
Charlotte Pratt, and the friendship
garnered some lasting results.
With Pratt going to UCLA, the
two are set to once again play as
teammates with the Bruins in the
fall. And it was Pratt who hosted
Reynolds official trip to the
UCLA campus, before Reynolds
ofcially committed last summer.

Cynthia Kent and her husband, John, didnt
set out to be landlords, but career choices made
it necessary.
We have rented out our home in Florida for
nine years because we move all over with the
military, says Kent, who recently relocated
her family from Nevada to Alabama for yet
another posting.
Some people become accidental landlords
because of a job change or difculty selling a
house. Others nd they need to rent out the
home of an elderly parent who has moved into
a care facility. More than 3 million owner-
occupied homes were converted to rental prop-
erties between 2007 and 2011, according to a
2013 report by the Joint Center for Housing
Studies at Harvard University.
Some advice for those taking on this chal-
lenging new role:
Acredit check and legal background check
can help you nd reliable, honest tenants,
says real-estate agent Gail Carpenter of
Northwood Realty in Pittsburgh.
Sometimes a credit check alone will rule
out an applicant, she says.
Personal references can be useful if the
applicant is local and you have mutual acquain-
tances. Otherwise, be wary.
Do not take personal references too seri-
ously, says New York City condo owner
Sharon Lynch, who rented her home to tenants
while spending a year in California. Anyone
can get a friend to write something nice about
Lynch suggests using an online directory to
search for an applicants current address and
get contact information for their neighbors.
Not only can these people tell you if your
applicants are good neighbors, but they can
also supply you with the landlords contact
information, she says, just in case your
potential tenant is faking you out, pretending
a friend was his or her landlord.
Meet applicants in person and really talk
with them, Carpenter says.
And request a rent that doesnt price good
applicants out of the market. You might earn
more over time with a slightly lower rent, she
says, because that can help you keep your
property occupied, versus asking for the moon
and then it sits there vacant.
Once youve found your tenant, clean your
home thoroughly and make the property as
safe as it can be, Carpenter says.
You may also want to tackle any looming
home improvement jobs now, rather than
leave your tenant to handle (or ignore) them
when they become larger problems.
If you plan to return to the home eventu-
ally, it can be practical to drop the rent
slightly and ll one room with belongings
youre leaving behind, rather than paying
for a storage space. Put a new lock on that
door and take the key with you.
It helps to take pictures of the house inside
and out, Kent says, to document its condition
and cleanliness.
Dont skip anything, and dont assume one
panoramic shot of each room will do. If youre
leaving furniture, also photograph the condi-

When your tenant arrives to inspect the
home before moving in, Kent says, have ten-
ants sign a document of the pictures, showing
the condition at move-in.
That walk-through inspection is vital for
both parties. Always be present for the move-
in and move-out inspections, says Babette

several times during her husbands Navy career
and founded Military Spouse magazine to
advise other military families about chal-
lenges like this one.
Also, Maxwell suggests, Provide your
renter with a baggie of approved nails,
screws, picture hangers. And if you have
specic products you want used on your coun-
ters, cabinets, oors, yard, she says, list
them in the lease.
As you negotiate the lease, dont forget to
have a detailed discussion about outdoor space,
too. Will you or the tenant pay for lawn cut-
ting? Who will keep up with pulling weeds and
trimming bushes? Is the tenant permitted to
plant owers and do other gardening?
So youve decided to rent out your home? Some tips
Being a landlord isnt just signing the lease and disappearing. A tenant will respect you and
your property more if you remain involved.

We pamper our gardens all year, but then
desert them to go on vacation during whats
often the hottest, driest time of the year.
Alittle planning can soften the blow.
Ideally, a neighbor or fellow gardener
could handle watering and other tasks while
youre away. But if thats not possible, here
are some easy ways to keep your plants and
owers alive while you sip Mai Tais on the
From old-fashioned to high-tech, there
are a lot of ways to keep your lawn and/or
garden properly hydrated while youre
First, check the forecast. If rain is likely
during your vacation, you may not need to
do a thing, although gardens typically need
1 to 2 inches of moisture a week to stay
healthy, says Matt Armstead, creator of the
gardening app Sprout it.
No matter what, make sure you water
your garden very deeply right before you
leave, he says. Soak it thoroughly sever-
al times in the days leading up to your
If rains not likely, or youre going to be
gone for more than a few days, a timed
sprinkler or drip irrigation system is a bet-
ter solution.
Make your own by poking a few (tiny)
holes in a milk jug and setting it in the gar-
den near the base of your plants. Holly Jo
Anderson, a 48-year-old gardener in
Plymouth, Minnesota, goes even more low-
tech, poking holes in a gallon-size plastic
baggie lled with water and hanging it over
her ower pots.
Soaker hoses are another good option,
and available at any home improvement
Jennifer Feller, head of a sustainable
design company in Arlington,
Massachusetts, installed a drip irrigation
system a couple years ago to keep her veg-
etable garden alive when shes gone six
weeks every summer.
Honestly, I didnt think it would work
that well, but at this point Im in love, she
says. I set it up on a timer and every morn-
ing it goes on for an hour by itself and
delivers a steady drip to my plants. It does-
nt waste any water to the air, like a sprin-
kler, and I can set it up to go wherever I
Easy Roller self-watering pots are also
available for containers. Each holds up to 1
1/2 gallons of water in a reservoir at the
Or ll a 2-liter plastic soda bottle with
water and insert it onto an Aqua Stick, a
green plastic cone which you then stick in
the soil of potted plants.
If you dont already have some type of
fencing in place, an electric or more tradi-
tional wooden fencing system might be
something to consider to keep pests at bay.
Self-supporting, mesh enclosures called
pest-control pop-ups are also available for
smaller areas.
If youd rather go the natural route, spray
a mixture of garlic and egg substitute on
your plants to help repel deer and other crea-
tures, says Elizabeth Dodson, founder of the
home-maintenance and organization soft-
ware HomeZada.
Bar soap, broken into chunks and hung
from strings or in old nylons on trees near
prime deer feeding areas, also works.
The week before you leave, give your gar-
den a thorough cleaning to get rid of as
many weeds as possible so they wont be
competing for water.
Cut back any dead or diseased leaves on
fruit and vegetable plants, and pick any-
thing thats near harvestable to keep the
plants growing and producing more while
youre gone.
Green beans, zucchini and cucumbers are
tasty even if theyre small, and they can
turn into inedible monsters if left on the
vine too long, says Armstead. Even herbs
like basil and rosemary will be happier if
you harvest a few sprigs, especially if
theyre giving any sign of owering or
going to seed.
Finally, spreading a fresh layer of mulch
or compost over the soil in your garden is a
good way to deter weeds and conserve water,
while improving your soil, says Julie Moir
Messervy, a landscape architect and author
based in Saxtons River, Vermont.
Clustering containers in shaded areas is
also a good way to keep moisture from
evaporating, and prevent owers and plants
from withering in direct sun. Hanging bas-
kets should be watered thoroughly and
taken to a shady spot.
Going on vacation? Prepare your garden first
Soaker hoses are a good option and available at any home improvement store.

You may want to do an outdoor cleanup before you leave and
then have the tenant agree to maintain that level of neatness.
Scan the property for any trees that could fall on the house
and assess their health. Better to pay now to have a sick tree
removed than worry about the outcome of a storm.
If there are repairs or upgrades that you promise your ten-
ant, set a schedule in your personal calendar for completing
them in the weeks after they move in.
Kent also recommends leaving a welcome binder that
stays with the house with local information, cleaning
requirements and other details.
Make sure your tenant knows how to contact you and how
to handle problems that might arise. Have a reputable con-
tractor or other professional on-call in case something needs
to be repaired, says Carpenter.
Alot of landlords grumble about getting a call in the mid-
dle of the night, she says, but things will inevitably hap-
Then, stay in touch. If you wont be living close enough to
check on the property yourself, arrange for a friend or hire a
property manager to do so.

the child to go to was already full.
A lot of families are doing their
homework and they know if theres an

youve got to nd something else.

I dont think things will settle out
soon, she said. With Google,
Facebook and other companies all
expanding theres so many people that
are coming into this area. I think its
going to keep going up.
Kapadia has seen a major shift in the
rental market since she began helping
clients nd spaces to lease four years
Its changed dramatically, she
said. Before you saw rentals and they
would stay on the market. Now, they
get rented out right away.
This trend of higher rents isnt
going to change anytime soon, but it
should slow, said Nick Grotjahn, sales
and client services representative for

albeit a little bit slower in the major
tech centers just because theyve got-
ten so high employment can only
affect that for so long, he said. The
driving force here (for rents) is high-
Those like Mark Moulton, executive
director of the Housing Leadership
Council of San Mateo County, are
advocating for more affordable hous-
ing along the Peninsula. His group
works to accelerate the production of
new homes in the county at all afford-
ability levels to create opportunities
and a viable quality of life.
From the view of renters with mod-
erate incomes, rent increases exceed
rates of income growth and the per-
centage of income paid for housing
goes up until folks are displaced,
sometimes more than a county away,
he wrote in an email. The cost of the
commute to the job is part of the hous-
ing cost.
The increase in rents has caused a
tremendous strain on people renting
along the Peninsula, said Joshua
Hugg, program manager for the
Housing Leadership Council of San
Mateo County. There is a really big
gap between those who own homes in
the county, and have beneted from
tremendous appreciation and intergen-
erational wealth, and renters, who
dont have that stability, he added.
You have a lot of people who are
experiencing a lot of stress right now
because of the high rents, he said.
Its gonna be a long effort. ... Coping
means things like less discretionary
income, which affects the economy
and overcrowding.
At the same time, the countys
homeless rate has risen 12 percent
since 2011, according to a report from
the countys Health and Human
Services Agency, compiled in January
2013. There are 2,281 homeless peo-
ple in the county as of January, with
1,299 unsheltered homeless people
and 982 sheltered homeless people,
according to the report. The next
homeless count will be conducted in
January 2015.
Meanwhile, Navarro offers various
tips to those looking to lease, includ-
ing driving around the neighborhood
and looking for lease signs by own-
Have everything ready to go, she
said. Applications, credit reports, dri-
vers license and cashiers check

tive cause the folks that put something

rst began the local event about a year
ago, has organized a street market
filled with vendors selling locally

live music for the public to enjoy this
Its a nationally recognized event
that happens all over the country and
usually it happens in art districts. But
San Mateo doesnt really have an art

Seguine said. We kind of just took it
upon ourselves to host the rst First
Friday and its grown a ton and its
Seguine said she started Flywheel
Press, a graphic design studio and sta-
tionary store in 2011, and expanded
the shop with co-owner Jenn Ludwig
in 2013.
The Shop at Flywheel Press now
morphs an art school, gallery, print
studio and store into a community
design center on B Street and Seventh
Avenue in downtown. This Friday,
their gallery doors will also be wide
open for the public to peruse local ne
The recently opened Claremont
Studios joined in the event in June and
Augusts First Friday will include
Peninsula Studios for the rst time,
artist Lorna Watt said.
As one of the founders of the recent-
ly established nonprofit, the
Downtown Art Project, Watt said shes
thrilled to see local artists taking it
upon themselves to create community
events exhibiting San Mateo talent.
The Downtown Art Project and the
city are trying to kindle an arts and
innovation district and so I think its
important when something like [this]
has a grassroots element, that it can
grow out of and I think First Friday is a
chance for everyone to see and interact
with the arts in San Mateo, Watt said.
Nancy Garcia, manager of Peninsula
Studios on North Idaho Street, said
Watt contacted her about joining in
and she cant imagine a better way to
spend a Friday night.
It will be a good night for people
who like to look at art and see whats
going on in an artists studio and meet
some great people, Garcia said.
Peninsula Studios has participated in
the annual Silicon Valley Open
Studios, but its not often that the pub-
lic has an opportunity to peek in and
meet the artists in person.
I think our studios have been around
for a couple of years and I think its a
nice way to let people in the communi-
ty know that we exist, Garcia said.
People can come in and take a look at
working artists studios. There will be
artists there and people can talk to the
artists about their process and what
they do, so its nice to be able to come
and learn about art.
Seguine said outside of a school, it
can be difcult for artists to nd a cre-
ative community, particularly when
living in a more suburban area like San
There wasnt a venue showing that
these things do exist here, Seguine
said. People can see they dont have
to travel far because its right here in
your backyard. We wanted to make sure
people see they dont have to go to the
city or to Oakland to see art and meet
really unique people.
Seguine said the event not only
encourages a creative community, it
also supports downtown. Seguine said
they encourage visitors to frequent
downtown restaurants then stop by
their shop and street fair for a great
Friday night out.
Watt agreed without a centralized arts
district, it can be more challenging for
artists to meet and less conducive to a
typical First Friday for the public. The
Claremont Studios and Flywheel Press
are within walking distance, but its
more realistic for people to drive to the
three open studios.
Watt said she wants to investigate
working to create more of a street fair
event with local artists near Railroad
Avenue in downtown eventually, but
that will likely take a concerted effort.
It comes down to whos willing to
roll up their sleeves and put the work
in to join us. It really is grassroots
which is cool because it makes it more
authentic, Watt said. I think its real-
ly important for local artists to dis-
cover and nd each other in San Mateo.
Because without events like this,
theres little ways for artists to con-

Planning commissioners and the
public suggested offering more park-
ing and retail, creating a better pedes-
trian experience and using an architec-
tural design that complements the
neighboring Central Park.
We got a lot of feedback from that
and weve been working with staff on
rening the plan and addressing issues
that had been brought up by both
neighbor groups and staff, said John
Eudy, executive vice president of
development for Essex Property Trust.
I wouldnt have closed escrow if I did-
nt think were going to get past the
issues. And I think were addressing
many, if not most, of the concerns
that were brought up.
Eudy said there isnt a clear timeline
as to when Essex will turn in a formal
application and he couldnt specify
what changes would be made, but its
exciting to move forward.
However, the pre-application out-
lined a 117-unit building with 3,500
square feet of retail space and a path
through the building connecting
Fourth Avenue to Central Park. It also
proposed 260 parking spaces, 95 of
which would be accessible to the pub-
lic, spread between one level of under-
ground, ground level and above
ground parking, according to a staff
report. The development would also
maintain the ramp that extends to the
rooftop portion of the Central
Parking Garage.
Because the proposal is for a 75-
foot-tall building, Essex will be sub-
ject to Measure P requirements. A
voter-approved extension of Measure
H, Measure P requires developments
taller than 55 feet to provide a public
benefit and an affordable housing
component of 10 percent below-mar-
ket rate units.
The determination of a public bene-
t will ultimately be left for the City
Councils approval.
The sites unique proximity to
Central Park will play a signicant
role in its approval as the formal
application will be reviewed by the
Parks and Recreation Commission,
Planning Commission and ultimately
the City Council.
Essex is in the process of develop-
ing Park 20, a 190-unit residential
development on Elkhorn Court and
20th Avenue, and owns the Hillsdale
Garden Apartments on Edison Street in
San Mateo.
Eudy said Essex is thrilled to have
secured what it envisions as a desir-
able transit-oriented development
Were excited about doing another
deal in San Mateo and I think this is
one of the best locations in San Mateo
from a residents perspective, Eudy
said. Todays tenants like to be close
to services, whether its restaurants,
grocery stores or what have you. So
they can get on a bike or walk versus
getting in a car. And this site has
everything and then some.

DONETSK, Ukraine Almost two weeks
after Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was blown
out of the sky, the remains of some passen-
gers are feared rotting in the 90-degree (32-
degree Celsius) midsummer heat, deepening
the frustration of relatives desperate to recov-
er the bodies of their loved ones.
Fighting between Ukrainian forces and sep-
aratist rebels has kept away international
police charged with securing the site, a
sprawling area of farmland and villages. And
until its secured, there is no way for forensic
experts to gather up any remaining bodies or
collect debris for analysis.
Even the rebels who initially oversaw
the collection of more than 200 of the 298
bodies in a disorganized, widely criticized
effort have stopped their work, saying
attacks from the Ukrainian military have
forced them to focus on defending themselves.
It remains unclear exactly how many bodies
remain and what condition they are in after
being exposed for so long to the elements.
Dutch ofcials are adamant there are still bod-
ies to be recovered, and Prime Minister Mark
Rutte has said repeatedly that bringing them
back is his governments top priority.
But Dutch ofcials were gloomy Wednesday
about the prospects of reaching the site any
time soon.
We dont expect the security situation to
improve enough over the next few days to
make this possible, said Pieter-Jaap
Aalbersberg, head of the Dutch-led recovery
Two crucial pieces of evidence the ight
recorders have already been retrieved and
analyzed, however.
The U.S. and Ukrainian governments say
the Boeing 777 was brought down July 17 by
a Russian-made missile red by eastern
Ukraines pro-Moscow separatists. The sepa-
ratists deny it; Russia denies providing the
Buk missile launcher and says the Ukrainian
military may have shot the plane down.
After the investigative teams failure to
reach the site on Wednesday, the United
Nations called on both sides in Ukraines
grinding civil conict to cease hostilities in
the area.
The families of the victims of this horric
tragedy deserve closure and the world demands
answers. International teams must be allowed
to conduct their work, U.N. spokesman
Stephane Dujarric said.
In their latest attempt to get to the wreckage
zone, observers from the Organization for
Security and Cooperation in Europe left in two
vehicles from the rebel-held city of Donetsk
but got only as far as the citys outskirts.
The observers talked with rebels and turned
back after being warned of gunre on the
route and in the surrounding areas, the Dutch
said in a statement.
Recent offensives by the Ukrainian army
have enabled it to take back swaths of territo-
ry from the rebels. But the ghting has edged
ever closer to the crash zone.
We are still waiting and it is a miserable
process, said Jasmine Calehr, the grandmoth-
er of two Dutch brothers who died in the crash.
Despite her mounting frustration, Calehr
said she did not want investigators to go
unless it was safe.
Other people are not supposed to risk their
lives, she said. But that there is nobody
strong enough to put pressure on a bunch of
rebels is very painful.
Ukraines U.N. Ambassador Yuriy Sergeyev
said in New York that Ukrainian forces have
adhered to President Petro Poroshenkos order
not to conduct operations within a 40-kilome-
ter (24-mile) radius of the crash site. He
accused the rebel side of bombing the site.
Sergeyev said Ukrainian forces are trying to
liberate the villages and the cities around this
site and to give the possibility to internation-
al experts to come in.
Of the 298 who died, 194 were Dutch citi-
zens, and Ukraine has asked for their govern-
ments help in investigating the crash.
Thirty-seven were from Australia. A total of
227 cofns have been own to the
Netherlands for identication and investiga-
With the debris eld left unsecured over the
past two weeks, international observers say
wreckage has been cut, moved or otherwise
tampered with.
Ukrainian government security spokesman
Andriy Lysenko added to security concerns
Wednesday by accusing the separatists of
mining the approaches to the area. Even if
rebels leave, he said, it will take time to
remove the mines and make the area safe for
Meanwhile, the head of Ukraines security
services revealed what he said was fresh satel-
lite imagery proving Russia had created a
major cross-border corridor for the delivery of
military equipment to the rebels.
Valentyn Nalyvaichenko said other photo-
graphs showed burn marks from rockets red
at Ukrainian troops from a position two kilo-
meters inside Russian territory.
Clashes prevent experts from reaching bodies
Alexander Hug, left, deputy head for the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Eu-
rope's (OSCE) monitoring mission in Ukraine,looks on next to an armed pro-Russian separatist

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.
