Pigeon Associations 93rd annual
Grand National Pigeon Show.
Showing pigeons is one of the oldest and largest hobbies in the world. It
thrives at a time when pets are becoming a more important part of peoples
lives and animals kept as companions
range from the traditional to the
unique, such as rats and tarantulas.
More than 7,800 birds packed the
Ontario Convention Center in
Southern California last weekend,
cooing and strutting in their cages,
which sent feathers and feed flying.
But the well-behaved show birds
wouldnt let one drop of waste fall on a
judges shoe as they were examined for
build, color and weight.
There were birds in blacks, whites
and browns with feathers on their feet,
circular crests framing their faces and
8-inch necks. Some looked like street
pigeons but bigger and stronger, with
massive shoulders and thick necks.
Tyson, the four-time heavyweight
world champion, kicked off the threeday event by releasing 100 white
pigeons. He agreed with the mostly

infuse young blood in the aging
hobby.
Take this opportunity at a young

Thieves assault pharmacy


employee, steal baby formula
Foster City police are searching for four suspects who
allegedly assaulted a CVS/pharmacy employee while
stealing baby formula Tuesday night.
Three women and a man entered the store on East
Hillsdale Boulevard before 7:15 p.m. and stole more than
$587 worth of formula, according to Foster City police.
A CVS store manager attempted to intervene and was hit
in the arm by one of the suspects, said police Capt. Frank
Derris.
The suspects left the store and fled in a white sedan
while narrowly missing the store manager whod followed them outside, Derris said. The case is being investigated as an assault with a deadly weapon due to the
involvement of the vehicle, Derris said.
Baby products are common items for thieves looking to
make a quick buck as they can sell them on the black market. Furthermore, security doesnt typically keep a close
watch on baby products as they might on a stores liquor
aisle, Derris said.
Baby formula is extremely expensive, so if you can
get away with a cart of baby formula, they can sell it for
10 cents on the dollar for cash to mom-and-pop
shops, Derris said.
The suspects are all described as black, however, police
arent currently releasing further information as the
investigation is ongoing, Derris said.

Measles outbreak isnt largest in recent memory


By Alicia Chang
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

REUTERS

Eighty-six percent of the scientists said childhood vaccines such as the MMR (measles, mumps
and rubella) vaccine should be mandatory, compared to 68 percent of the general public.

Why you should, and shouldnt, worry


Q: How dangerous is measles?
A: For most people, measles is miserable but not life-threatening.The most common symptoms include fever, runny nose,
cough, and a rash all over the body. However, a very small fraction of people get much sicker, and can suffer complications
like pneumonia and encephalitis. Before there was a vaccine,
about 450 to 500 Americans died from measles each year, on
average. Also, measles can cause pregnant women to have premature, fragile babies.
Q: How is measles spread?
A: Measles is considered one of the most infectious diseases
known. The virus is spread through the air when someone infected coughs or sneezes. It can live up to two hours in the air
or on the surfaces of a room afterward. Its so contagious that
90 percent of people who arent immunized are infected if exposed to the virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention.
Q: How well does the vaccine work?
A: Health officials say the vaccine is 97 percent effective; people who are vaccinated can still get the measles, although its
usually a mild case.The vaccine was licensed in the United States
in 1963, and as more children were vaccinated, cases plummeted. About a decade ago, the nation was down to fewer than
100 cases a year. In 2000, measles was declared eliminated
no longer constantly spreading in the country.
Q: Who should be vaccinated?
A: The government recommends that all children get measles
vaccine with the first dose when they are about 1 and a second dose between the ages of 4 and 6. The CDC guidance is
based on advice from a panel of experts that decides which
vaccines are needed and when. Following that guidance, states
have made vaccination a requirement for attending school.
Q: Are there any side effects?
A: Most people have no reaction. Some experience temporary
pain or swelling where the needle went in. About 5 to 10 per-

California appeals ruling


that allowed foie gras again
LOS ANGELES California filed an
appeal Wednesday of a federal judges ruling
that blocked the states ban on the sale of
foie gras a delicacy that gourmets consider heaven and animal rights groups call hell.
Attorney General Kamala D. Harris gave
notice that she will appeal last months ruling, which barred California from enforcing
its ban on selling fatty goose or duck liver
produced out of state. The ban took effect in
2012.
A Hermosa Beach restaurant called Hots
Kitchen, and foie gras producers in New York
and Canada challenged the ban. The judge
ruled state law doesnt trump federal poultry
regulations.
It remains illegal for California farmers to
force-feed birds, which is how the delicacy is
made.
The restaurant and foie gras producers said
they are confident the ruling will be upheld.
The decision was based on the simple fact
that, in the field of meat and poultry, federal
law is supreme. California does not have the
right to ban wholesome, USDA-approved
poultry products, whether its foie gras or

cent of those who get the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine experience a low-grade fever and a mild rash, according to the
CDC.
Q: Do most parents get their kids vaccinated?
A: Yes, and the rates have been fairly stable. Overall, 95 percent
of children entering kindergarten are vaccinated. But in a number of states, a rising number of parents have filed for
exemptions to vaccination requirements. Some are for medical reasons, but many are for religious or philosophical reasons.
Some of those involve doubts that the vaccine is necessary.
Others fear that the vaccine can cause autism a concern
sparked by a study published in a British medical journal in
1998.That paper was later retracted and thoroughly discredited.
Other studies have found no link.The new outbreak has spurred
a backlash against vaccination holdouts.
Q: So if measles was eliminated in the U.S., why are we seeing cases now?
A: Measles is still a big problem in some other parts of the world,
and travelers infected abroad can bring the virus into the country and spread it. Thats what California health officials think
happened at Disneyland amusement park, although they
havent found the person who triggered the outbreak.The last
several years have seen more and more of that. Last year, 644
measles infections were reported in 27 states, the most since
1994. More than half of the cases were in an Amish community in Ohio; missionaries brought measles back from the

Q: Im an adult. Do I need a shot?
A: Most likely not. Anyone born before 1957 is thought to be immune because measles was so widespread, and most kids got
it. Adults who got the vaccine as kids are OK, too they are protected for life. However, there was a less-effective vaccine from
1963 to 1967. Anyone who got that vaccine or those who arent
sure they were ever vaccinated can get the shots now.

LOS ANGELES The largest U.S. measles


outbreak in recent history isnt the one that
started in December at Disneyland. It happened months earlier in Ohios Amish country, where 383 people fell ill after unvaccinated Amish missionaries traveled to the
Philippines and returned with the virus.
The Ohio episode drew far less attention,
even though the number of cases was almost
four times that of the Southern California
outbreak, because it seemed to pose little
threat outside close-knit religious communities.
The Disneyland outbreak has already
spread well beyond the theme parks that
attract tens of thousands of visitors from
around the globe, who could then return
home with the virus. Disease investigators
for weeks raced to identify measles-stricken
patients, track down potential contacts and
quarantine them if necessary.
Public health experts say success at containing the outbreak will largely depend on
how many unvaccinated people get the
measles shot.
This was a wake-up call, said Dr. James
Cherry, a pediatric infectious disease expert
at the University of California, Los Angeles.
It could continue to smolder if not enough
people get vaccinated.
The latest outbreak began when an infected person spread the illness to more than
three dozen people at Disneyland who then
exposed many others. Most were unvaccinated, according to state health officials.
In contrast, the Ohio outbreak stayed
contained within those communities, and
outside people said, Well, it doesnt really
affect me. Whats different with this one is
more people can relate to Disneyland, said
Dr. Gregory Wallace of the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
More than 100 measles cases in half a

dozen states have been linked to people who


visited or worked at Disneyland in December
or exposure to infected people who went
there. California health officials on
Wednesday reported 99 measles cases including six new infections with a Disneyland
connection.
Federal health officials said its too early
to predict whether this will be a particularly
severe year compared with 2014, which saw
more measles cases than any year since
1994. The Ohio outbreak accounted for more
than half of the 644 measles cases reported
last year.
Homegrown measles has not occurred in
the United States since 2000 due to an
aggressive vaccination campaign. But outbreaks have hit in recent years with nearly
all cases linked to travelers who caught the
virus overseas where measles still rages and
spread it in this country among pockets of
unvaccinated people.
In the Disneyland outbreak, public health
officials have yet to identify the index
case the first person who contracted
measles and spread it. But they believe its
someone who imported the virus from
abroad and spread it during a visit to one of
the theme parks days before Christmas.
Multistate measles outbreaks have
occurred before, but when a location has
name-brand recognition to society, like
Disneyland, its going to get a lot of media
attention, said Dr. James Wilson, a pediatrician and disease forecaster at the
University of Nevada, Reno.
Wilson said California faces a bigger
health problem whooping cough, also
known as pertussis, which killed two babies
last year. The last time there was a measles
death in the U.S. was in 2003.
Both measles and whopping cough can be
prevented through vaccinations. The issue
has stirred sometimes-angry debates and
even entered the realm of presidential politics.

Second defeat for GOP on Homeland, immigration bill


By Erica Werner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Senate Republicans put


Democrats on record for a second time
Wednesday against legislation combining
Homeland Security funding with rollbacks
of President Barack Obamas immigration
policies. But there was little evidence
Congress was any closer to a solution to
fund the department past Feb. 27 as that
deadline approaches.
The vote in the Senate was 53 to 47, similar to Tuesdays vote on a similar procedural measure, and well short of the 60 votes
that would be needed to open debate on a
House-passed Homeland Security measure.
The bill would pay for the Homeland department through Sept. 30, the end of the current budget year, and undo Obamas executive actions limiting deportations for millions of people who are in the United States
illegally.
Another procedural vote was expected
Thursday, with perhaps more to come.
Is that the definition of insanity, voting
on the same bill over and over again? Sen.
John McCain, R-Ariz., quipped to reporters
ahead of Wednesdays vote.
Democrats said that no matter how many

Tesla a step closer to selling

PHOENIX Electric car manufacturer Tesla
Motors has moved a step closer to selling
vehicles directly to consumers at Arizona
stores.
The state House Commerce Committee
advanced a bill Wednesday that would allow
carmakers to bypass dealers and sell directly
to consumers if the company establishes a
service center in the state. The committee
approved House Bill 2216 on a 5-3 vote.
The committees action came about a week
after Gov. Doug Ducey sympathized with ride-

times Republicans held the vote, the outcome would be the same unless the contested language on immigration was removed.
This is pretty simple, said Sen. Claire
McCaskill, D-Mo. At a time when the
world is united in trying to send a strong
signal about confronting ISIS and defeating
ISIS, I think putting veto bait in the funding for homeland security is a very bad
idea. ISIS is one acronym for the militant
Islamic State group that has taken over
parts of Syria and Iraq.
But if the point was to prove to House
conservatives that their legislation would
not fly in the Senate, where the Democratic
minority holds more sway, the goal had not
yet been met.
We have the strategy, its to do what the
American people sent us to do. Thats our
legislation, said Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio,
arguing the public was counting on

Republicans to block an unconstitutional


overreach by Obama. I look at it as a
chance for seven Democratic senators to
find Jesus and do the right thing.
From the White House, Obama countered
the GOP by hosting an Oval Office meeting
with a half-dozen young immigrants protected by his policies. The GOP legislation
would subject Obamas visitors to eventual
deportation.
After the meeting, Obama accused
Republicans of ignoring the human consequences of their legislation and repeated
his threat to veto the bill if it reached his
desk. As for GOP efforts to link homeland
security money to reversing his immigration action, Obama said, There is no logic
to that position.
Why would you cut off your nose to spite
your face by defunding the very operations
that are involved in making sure we have

hailing companies such as Uber and Lyft by


dropping the states efforts to enforce ridefor-hire regulations and calling their apps
innovative, entrepreneurial technologies.
Supporters say the move could signal that
Duceys administration is more receptive to
helping business models such as Teslas
direct-to-consumer approach.
Traditional automakers and dealers oppose
the bill.
Jim Norton, a representative for the
Arizona Automotive Dealers Association,
said passing the bill could disrupt the current
system of car dealers that operate independently and provide service.

Assembly speaker proposes

Indeed, most agreed that Congress would
find a way to approve the funding, even if it
meant passing a short-term extension ahead
of the Feb. 27 deadline before coming up
with a final deal.
How and when lawmakers would get there
was less clear in a new era of divided government, with Republicans in full control
of Congress for the first time in eight years
and Obama ready and willing to wield his
veto pen.
Senate Republicans, including moderate
Susan Collins of Maine, were looking for a
way out with alternate legislation to fund
the department and roll back the new administration policies limiting deportations
while keeping protections for immigrants
brought to the U.S. as children.
I think its a good solution and a way to
resolve an impasse that has the potential to
cause some real harm, said Collins. But
with Democrats refusing to even debate the
legislation unless all the immigration language was removed, it was unclear whether
her measure would shift the debate.
In the House, lawmakers were debating
options, including trying to split up the
Homeland bill or link it to a lawsuit against
Obama.
The fees could be higher for trucks and for
electric vehicle drivers who dont pay gas
taxes. The San Diego Democrats plan
responds to a call by Gov. Jerry Brown for the
Legislature to tackle a $59 billion backlog in
infrastructure repairs.
The shortfall is driven in part by declining
gasoline tax revenues as more fuel-efficient
cars use roads that continue to age and deteriorate.
The state has been looking beyond the gas
pump to raise money. One option under
review is charging drivers by miles traveled
instead of fuel guzzled, but that would take at
least five years to implement.

Barack Obamas pick for defense

WASHINGTON President Barack


Obamas pick to run the Pentagon was
grilled Wednesday by Republicans who
used his confirmation hearing to criticize
White House foreign policy on every front
from battling Islamic State militants to
supporting Ukraine to trying to shutter the

Some Repubicans want tax


credits in health alternative
By David Espo
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON A small, influential


group of Republicans, in search of a replacement health care law, will propose tax credits to help lower-income individuals and
families purchase insurance, officials said
Wednesday. The GOP lawmakers would jettison the controversial coverage requirement
in the current Obamacare law.
The proposal is part of an outline that
Sen. Orrin Hatch, Sen. Richard Burr and
Rep. Fred Upton plan to make public on
Thursday. Its an early marker among the
competing recommendations likely to be
floated in advance of an expected Supreme
Court ruling in June on the constitutionality of a key part of President Barack Obamas
health insurance overhaul.
Hatch, from Utah, is chairman of the
Senate Finance Committee, which has jurisdiction over much of the current law. Burr,
from North Carolina, is a member of the
panel. Upton, a Michigan lawmaker, chairs
the House Committee on Energy and
Commerce, which has significant authority
over the law in that chamber.
Aides to all three lawmakers declined comment. Upton also declined to provide any
details of the plan, but he said on Tuesday
the effort is aimed at being prepared to talk
about something we could support if the
court strikes down a part of the law that provides subsidies for millions who purchase
coverage under the current arrangement.
Like other alternatives expected to follow, the starting point for the three lawmakers is repeal of the current law, which
Republicans voted against unanimously
when it passed in 2010 and have tried

repeatedly to uproot since then.


Officials familiar with the emerging proposal said it is based in large part on an outline that Hatch, Burr and former Sen. Tom
Coburn of Oklahoma outlined a year ago.
These officials spoke on condition of
anonymity because they were not authorized
to speak on the record before a formal
announcement.
By repealing Obamas health care law, the
plan would eliminate the government
requirement for individuals to purchase coverage and the penalty for noncompliance
a key irritant to Republicans and get rid
of a companion mandate for businesses to
provide coverage for their workforce. It also
is expected to scrap a requirement for all
plans to provide insurance in specific areas,
including inpatient settings, hospitalization, maternal and newborn coverage, pediatric care and more.
The plan will call for tax credits to individuals and families up to 300 percent of the
poverty line to encourage them to purchase
coverage, officials said. For a family of
four, that translates to annual income of up
to $71,400, according to the Department of
Health and Human Services website.
To help finance the program, Hatch, Burr
and Upton are expected to recommend taxing the value of health insurance plans
above $30,000 a year as regular income, the
officials added.
The issue of a possible replacement measure arose at a Senate hearing during the day,
when Republicans pressed Health and
Human Services Secretary Sylvia M.
Burwell to describe the administrations
plans in case the court strikes down part of
the law. She said she was focused on enforcing the law instead.

Man convicted of operating


underground site Silk Road
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK A San Francisco man was


swiftly convicted Wednesday of creating and
operating an underground website that prosecutors said enabled drug dealers around the
world to reach customers they would never
find on the street.
Ross William Ulbricht was convicted of
seven drug and conspiracy counts. The
jurys verdict in federal court in Manhattan
came after little more than three hours of
deliberations and one day after prosecutors
urged jurors to follow Ulbrichts digital
fingerprints.
The government said drug dealing made up
nearly all of Silk Roads sales during its
nearly three years in business, which ended
with Ulbrichts October 2013 arrest.
Prosecutors also discounted defense claims
that Ulbricht was framed by others in a

murky Internet world


where nothing is what it
seems.
Prosecutors
said
Ulbricht enabled more
than 1 million drug deals
on Silk Road and earned
about $18 million in bitcoins. Sales of illegal
Ross Ulbricht drugs of every type were
delivered through the
website, representing at least $180 million
in sales, they said.
Ulbricht had several supporters among
the spectators. When the verdict was
announced, his father dropped his head in
his hands. Later, a male spectator shouted
out, Ross is a hero! Another called out to
him: Its not over Ross. We love you. As
Ulbricht was led out of court, he waved

way that once they are beaten they stay

security forces, which Carter said he understood would begin to take back territory in
coming months. In Syria, the U.S. is helping build a fighting force of moderate
Syrian regional forces to take on the militants.

Death toll hits 31 in


Taiwan plane crash
By Ralph Jennings
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TAIPEI, Taiwa Rescuers were


searching for 12 people Thursday
morning after using a crane to
hoist the fuselage of a wrecked
TransAsia Airways plane from a
shallow river in Taiwans capital
following a crash that killed at
least 31 others.
Flight 235 with 58 people
aboard many of them travelers
from China banked sharply on
its side Wednesday shortly after
takeoff from Taipei, clipped a
highway bridge and then careened
into the Keelung River.
Rescuers in rubber rafts pulled
15 people alive from the wreckage
during daylight. After dark, they
brought in the crane, and the death
toll was expected to rise once
crews were able to search through
submerged portions of the fuselage, which came to rest a few
dozen meters (yards) from the
shore.
Dramatic video clips apparently
taken from cars were posted online
and aired by broadcasters, showing the ATR 72 propjet as it pivoted onto its side while zooming
toward a traffic bridge over the
river. In one of them, the plane
rapidly fills the frame as its nowvertical wing scrapes over the
road, hitting a vehicle before
heading into the river.
Speculation cited in local media
said the crew may have turned
sharply to follow the line of the

river to avoid crashing into a


high-rise residential area, but
Taiwans aviation authority said it
had no evidence of that.
Taiwanese broadcasters repeatedly played a recording of the
planes final contact with the control tower in which the crew called
out Mayday three times. The
recording offered no direct clues as
to why the plane was in distress.
It was the airlines second
French-Italian-built ATR 72 to
crash
in
the past
year.
Wednesdays flight had taken off
at 11:53 a.m. from Taipeis downtown Sungshan Airport en route to
the outlying Taiwanese-controlled
Kinmen islands. The crew issued
the mayday call shortly after takeoff, Taiwanese civil aviation
authorities said.
TransAsia director Peter Chen
said contact with the plane was
lost four minutes after takeoff. He
said weather conditions were suitable for flying and the cause of the
accident was unknown.
Actually this aircraft in the
accident was the newest model. It
hadnt been used for even a year,
he told a news conference.
Thirty-one passengers were
from China, Taiwans tourism
bureau said. Kinmens airport is a
common link between Taipei and
Chinas Fujian province.
Taiwans Civil Aeronautics
Administration said 31 people
were confirmed dead, 15 were rescued with injuries and 12 were still
missing.

Jordan says IS can be defeated; uproar over burn video


By Karin Laub
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

AMMAN, Jordan Jordan called


Wednesday for a decisive battle against the
Islamic State group, declaring this evil can
and should be defeated, after the militants
burned a Jordanian pilot to death in a cage
and gleefully broadcast the horrific images
on outdoor screens in their stronghold.
Waves of revulsion over the killing
washed across the Middle East, a region
long accustomed to violence. In mosques,
streets and coffee shops, Muslims
denounced the militants brutality and distanced themselves from their violent version of Islam.
Even a prominent preacher with close
links to jihadi groups said Islamic State
militants miscalculated if they hoped the
images of the pilots agony would galvanize greater opposition to a U.S.-led military coalition that has been bombing targets of the group.
After millions of Muslims were cursing
every pilot (in the coalition), with this act,
they (IS) have made the burned one into a
symbol, Abdullah al-Muhaysni, a Saudi
sheik, wrote on his Twitter account.
The Islamic State group, which controls
large areas of Iraq and Syria, has killed captives in the past, posting videos of beheadings and sparking widespread condemnation. However, the killing of Lt. Muath alKaseasbeh, who crashed over Syria in

People wave the Jordanian flags as they line the street to receive the king after his return
from the United States at the Queen Alia International Airport in Amman.
December, also highlighted the vulnerability of Jordan, a key Western ally in the
region, to threats from extremists.
Jordan was long considered an island of
relative stability in a turbulent region, but
in recent years had to absorb hundreds of
thousands of war refugees, first from Iraq
and then Syria, at a time of a sharp economic downturn.

Jordan receives hundreds of millions of


dollars in foreign aid a year, but grinding
social problems persist, including high
unemployment among young men, a reservoir of potential IS recruits.
Experts estimate Islamic State and other
jihadi groups have thousands of supporters
in the kingdom, with an upswing last year
after the militants declared a caliphate in the

areas they control.


The United States and Israel are particularly concerned about any signs of turmoil.
Israel views Jordan as an important land
buffer and the two countries share intelligence.
In Washington, congressional support
built Wednesday for increased U.S. military
assistance to the kingdom. Currently, the
United States is providing Jordan with $1
billion annually in economic and military
assistance.
Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat and member of the Senate Armed Services
Committee, said Jordans King Abdullah II
who met with lawmakers and President
Barack Obama on Tuesday must be given
all of the military equipment he needs to
combat the group. He said Abdullah did not
ask for ground troops.
At the White House, spokesman Josh
Earnest said the administration would consider any aid package put forward by
Congress, but that the White House would
be looking for a specific request from
Jordans government.
Sen. John McCain, chairman of the
Senate Armed Services Committee, said he
expected his panel to swiftly approve legislation. He repeated his criticism that the
Obama administration has no strategy for
dealing with the Islamic State group, and
said he hoped the video of al-Kaseasbehs
death will galvanize not only U.S. leadership but the Arab world.

Using troops and planes, three African nations battle Boko Haram
By Haruna Umar and Michelle Faul
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria Three militaries,


using ground troops and warplanes, fought
Boko Haram on at least two fronts Wednesday
with hundreds of the Islamic fighters reported
dead as the conflict took on a growing international perspective.
Chads army said its troops were attacked
Tuesday in Cameroon by Boko Haram, the
Nigerian extremist group that has slaughtered
and kidnapped civilians and has had the upper
hand against Nigerias military. The Chadian
troops response underscores other African
nations newfound resoluteness to combat
what they perceive as a regional threat.
Our valiant forces responded vigorously, a
chase was immediately instituted all the way
to their base at Gamboru and Ngala (in
Nigeria), where they were completely wiped
out, spokesman Col. Azem Bermendoa said
on national television Tuesday night.

More than 200 extremists and nine


Chadian troops were killed, he said.
On Wednesday, hundreds of Boko Haram
fighters driven out of Gamboru crossed the
border and attacked Chadian military posts in
Fotokol, in far northern Cameroon, residents
and military officers said.
Cameroonian troops mobilized to join the
Chadians in confronting the invaders, resident journalist Ledoux Blaise Mal Moussa
told the Associated Press by telephone. The
ongoing battle was confirmed by
Cameroonian military officers who spoke on
condition of anonymity because they are not
authorized to speak to reporters. Most
Fotokol residents had weeks ago fled the
town which Boko Haram was using to resupply.

NEW YORK The stock market


ended an uncertain day mostly lower
after the price of oil took another
plunge. Stronger profits at Disney
pushed its stock higher, giving the
Dow Jones industrial average a small
lift.
Major indexes headed lower at the
opening bell, as a drop in crude oil
tugged energy stocks down. The
Standard & Poors 500 index recovered
its losses by midday, meandered
through the afternoon, then swung
from a solid gain to a slight loss in the
final hour of trading.
I think theres a sense of uneasiness
and lack of conviction among
investors right now, said Terry
Sandven, senior equity strategist at
U.S. Bank Wealth Management. You
see that in the split personality of the
market.
The Standard & Poors 500 index fell
8. 52 points, or 0. 4 percent, to
2,041.51.
The Dow edged up 6.62 points, less
than 0.1 percent, to 17,673.02 and the
Nasdaq sank 11.03 points, or 0.2 percent, to 4,716.70.
Over the previous six trading days,
the market turned in three gains and
three losses. Sandven said rising
uncertainty over corporate earnings

has helped drive the volatility. Falling


oil prices and a stronger dollar have
pinched companies profits, forcing
investors to second-guess their expectations.
Late Tuesday, Walt Disney reported
that strong results from theme parks,
television channels and selling merchandise tied to its Frozen movie
drove quarterly earnings up 19 percent. Disneys profit and revenue
trounced Wall Streets estimates for
the quarter, and its stock surged $7.18,
or 8 percent, to $101.28, an all-time
high.
Bob Iger, Disneys CEO, said the
company was not seeing a hit to attendance from the measles outbreak
linked last month to Disneys
Southern California parks.
Ralph Laurens stock lost $31.12, or
18 percent, to $139. 71, after the
retailer reported a drop in quarterly
earnings and slashed its sales forecast
for the full year. The company spent
more to open new stores while revenue
stayed nearly flat, held back by a
stronger dollar.
The fourth-quarter earnings season
now looks better than it did just two
weeks ago. Nearly three out of four big
companies have turned in higher profits than analysts had expected, putting
overall earnings on track to rise nearly
7 percent for the quarter, according to
S&P Capital IQ. Two weeks ago, the

expected increase was just 4 percent.


A recent rebound in oil prices fizzled
out Wednesday as the benchmark contract for U.S. crude fell $4.60, or 8.7
percent, to settle at $48.45 a barrel in
New York. The drop came after the U.S.
government reported an increase in
crude inventories last week.
Oil had rallied over the previous four
days as traders speculated that low
prices would force more energy companies to curtail exploration and production. Brent crude, a benchmark for
international oils used by many U.S.
refineries, declined $3.75, or 6.5 percent, to close at $54.16 a barrel in
London.
Major markets in Europe ended
mixed. Frances CAC 40 rose 0.4 percent and Germanys DAX edged up 0.2
percent. Britains FTSE 100 closed
with a loss of 0.2 percent.
In the U.S., Staples announced that
its buying Office Depot for $6 billion
in a widely anticipated merger of the
two largest office supply retailers. The
cash-and-stock deal comes a little
more than a year after Office Depot
merged with OfficeMax and still needs
approval from regulators. Staples
dropped $2. 28, or 12 percent, to
$16.73.
Prices wavered in the market for U.S.
government bonds, leaving the yield
on the 10-year Treasury note at 1.79
percent, the same as late Tuesday.

No fast or slow lanes for Internet? New rules proposed


Net Neutrality: What
it is, how it affects you
Q. What is net neutrality?
A.Whether youre trying to buy a necklace on Etsy, stream the season premiere
of Netflixs House of Cards, or watch a music video on Googles YouTube, your
Internet service provider would have to load all of those websites equally
quickly. Broadband and fiber-optic service providers wouldnt potentially be
able to create a tiered system where companies had to pay tolls to get content to customers faster. The theory is that sites that didnt pay tolls, and
therefore loaded more slowly than others, might see a fall-off in traffic as customers grew frustrated by the lack of speed. Another fear of content creators
is that since major cable companies provide much of the Internet service in
the U.S., they might favor digital content produced by their affiliates unless rivals were willing to pay up. All of this could particularly hurt small businesses
or smaller sites that couldnt afford to pay.
Q. What is Wheeler trying to do?
A.He has three primary goals: to prevent Internet service providers from blocking traffic to any website obeying U.S. laws; to ban throttling, the practice of
slowing down service for a commercial purpose; and to prevent the creation
of fast lanes.
Q. Are Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, Time Warner Cable and others really planning to charge individual companies for faster service?
A. The major Internet service providers insist they have no plans to create such
fast lanes and therefore there is no need for changing the way they are regulated.They maintain that blocking or slowing down content wouldnt be in their
best interests. But they do think that some companies that use a lot of data, like
Netflix, might need to bear some of the cost of handling the heavy traffic they
generate.
Q. Wasnt all this debated years ago?
A. The FCC has so far enforced open Internet rules with the 1996 Telecommunications Act, which was intended to encourage competition in the
telephone and cable industry. However, a federal appeals court knocked down
that approach.
President Barack Obama and consumer advocates say a better tack would be
to apply Title II of the 1934 Communications Act. Written 80 years ago with
radio, telegraph and phone service in mind (most households didnt own a
TV), that law prohibits companies from charging unreasonable rates or threatening access to services that are critical to society.Thats what Wheeler proposed
Wednesday.
Q. What does this mean for smartphones?
A. Even wireless carriers will fall under Title II if Wheelers proposal is approved.
Thats important given that mobile phones are becoming the primary way that
many people watch online video, play games, read and shop. The FCC estimates that about 55 percent of all Internet traffic now travels over mobile
broadband networks.
A video service couldnt be blocked or slowed down, for instance, because it competes with an offering from the carrier. The proposal also extends to apps.
Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile are developing a mobile payment system called Softcard, for instance, and blocking access to rival payment apps such as Apple Pay
would be barred.
Q: So whats not to like about net neutrality?
A. Internet service providers say they back the concept. But they dont want to
face more (read: costly) regulation and claim it would hurt the economy.
Their argument goes something like this:The Internet has been progressing just
fine the way it is currently set up, thanks in parts to their expensive investments
in network upgrades that have improved the quality of high-speed service and
expanded its availability. More regulation will cost them more money money
they would otherwise spend on expanding and improving their networks, they
say. That would have the trickle-down effect of hurting business creation and
jobs.
Q: Will changing how ISPs are regulated also change my Internet bill?
A. Its likely too early to say. Wheeler reasons Internet service providers should
still retain their pricing flexibility because he isnt suggesting implementing
the part of Title II that would let the FCC set rates. Nor is he suggesting adding
on the same taxes and special fees that Title II provisions have slapped on
monthly utility bills for decades.

By Anne Flaherty
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Declaring the


Internet critical for the nation, a top
U.S. regulator on Wednesday proposed
an unprecedented expansion of federal
power to ensure providers dont block
or slow web traffic for Americas countless users.
The
proposal
by
Federal
Communications
Commission
Chairman Tom Wheeler was a victory
for advocates of net neutrality, the
idea that Internet providers must allow
data to move across their networks
without interference. The idea has been
the subject of heavy lobbying and millions of dollars in advertising in the
past year.
Net neutrality means that whether
youre trying to buy a necklace on
Etsy, stream the season premiere of
Netflixs House of Cards or watch a
music video on Googles YouTube,
your Internet service provider would
have to load all of those websites
equally quickly.
Major Internet providers insist they
have no plans to create such fast or
slow lanes, but they strongly oppose

the regulation, arguing that it could


stifle innovation and investment.
Open Internet rules had been in place
but were recently knocked down by a
federal court.
Wheelers proposal attempts to
erase any legal uncertainty by reclassifying the Internet as a telecommunications service and regulating it under
the 1934 Communications Act. The
plan would apply to both wired service
provided by companies like Comcast
and wireless service by companies like
T-Mobile.
That would put all Internet service in
the same regulatory camp as telephones and any other public utility,
which Republicans and industry officials say would discourage investment
and increase taxes.
The FCC will vote Feb. 26 on the proposal, and approval is considered likely.
President Barack Obama has called for
regulation under the Communications
Act, and Democratic appointees hold a
commission majority.
It is counterproductive because
heavy regulation of the Internet will
create uncertainty and chill investment
among the many players not just
Internet service providers that now

will need to consider FCC rules before


launching new services, said Michael
Glover, Verizon senior vice president
and deputy general counsel.
But Wheeler and consumer groups
say the move is necessary to prevent
providers from creating slow or fast
lanes on the Internet in which content
companies like Netflix can pay to
jump to the head of the queue. Wheeler
also shrugged off any suggestions that
his plan would chill industry investment, citing $300 billion in investment by the wireless industry in the
past two decades.
My proposal assures the rights of
Internet users to go where they want,
when they want, and the rights of
innovators to introduce new products
without asking anyones permission,
Wheeler wrote in an article that Wired
magazine posted online.
Still, his plan is an aggressive regulatory leap in an industry that has so
far seen little government oversight.
Wheeler said he would not use the new
regulations to tell broadband providers
how much to charge customers, as the
Communications Act would allow.
Still, industry says thats only a matter
of time.

Staples buys Office Depot for $6B to keep pace with change
By Michelle Chapman
and Anne DInnocenzio
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Evolving shopping


habits have forced yet another retailer
to think outside of the box.
Staples, the nations largest big
box office supply chain, announced
Wednesday that its spending about $6
billion to buy its second-ranked rival,
Office Depot.
The acquisition reflects a reversal of
fortunes for big-box retailers. Founded
in the late 1980s, Staples and Office
Depot were among a group of chains led
by Wal-Mart that opened thousands of
supersized stores during much of the
next two decades for shoppers who
wanted to buy in bulk.
But shopping patterns changed in
recent years as Americans have grown
increasingly deal-hungry and comfort-

able
with
online
shopping.
Competition from smaller stores and
the rise of online retailers like
Amazon.com also have hurt big-box
chains.
Office supply retailers also have
some unique issues, though. The
impact of technology on the U.S.
workforce has dramatically shrunk the
demand for items that were once their
bread-and butter, including personal
computers, ink cartridges, and printers.
In the 1990s, office supply retailers
catered to the throngs of workers setting up home offices. But, now with the
popularity of smartphones, people can
work anywhere. They also are buying
fewer PCs and other big gadgets in
favor of small devices like smartphones.
Staples has been ahead of its office
supplies peers in responding to the

changes. Its been changing its mix of


products in the stores, beefing up services like copying and offering more
items online. Its also been opening
smaller stores and investing in services
aimed at specific small businesses.
But the brick-and-mortar office supply chain business has continued to
struggle as online sales have grown.
Last year, office products sold online
hit $9.2 billion, accounting for 24 percent of the overall office supplies category. Thats up from $2.6 billion, or 7
percent of the market, in 2004, according to Forrester Research.
Meanwhile, Office Depots sales have
been mostly on a downward slope since
its fiscal 2007 year when they peaked at
$15.5 billion, according to research
firm FactSet. Sales rose in the latest
year because of its deal with OfficeMax.
Staples sales peaked in fiscal 2011 at
$25 billion, and have been down since.

Sequoia tops Burlingame, PAL South standings


By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

When the Sequoia basketball team gets into a


flow, the Cherokees are among the best teams
in San Mateo County.
Wednesday night, the Cherokees hosted
Burlingame in a showdown for first place in the
Peninsula Athletic League South Division
standings. The Cherokees got into one of their
flows as they pulled away from the Panthers
down the stretch to record a 74-68 victory.

(This was) big. We knew it was for the lead


in the PAL, said Sequoia guard Chris Bene,
who had a monster game with 29 points, 13
rebounds, three blocks and two steals.
We havent beaten them (Burlingame) in a
long time.
The fact Bene was even in the game appears
to be a minor miracle. Sequoia coach Fine
Lauese said Bene had been sick all day
Wednesday, even throwing up before the game.
Today he was sick, Lauese said. Maybe we
need him to be sick more.

Bene, however, was not about to use illness


as an excuse to give anything less than his
best.
I tried to focus 100 percent on not being
sick, Bene said.
The only sick thing about Benes game
Wednesday was his posterizing baseline dunk
on a Burlingame defender midway through the
fourth quarter. The Panthers had cut a 22-point,
second-quarter deficit into only three points,
59-56, with just over five minutes to play
before Bene hammered home a tomahawk jam

that lifted the entire Sequoia team. The


Cherokees used that momentum to ice the game
at the free throw line, where they went 9 for 12
over the final 4:22 to clinch the win.
Theyre much better in person than on
film, Burlingame coach Pete Harames said of
Sequoia. They came out fired up. They shot the
ball like crazy.
It was Sequoias hot shooting in the first half
that enabled the Cherokees to build a massive
lead, 37-15 with 5:56 left in the second quarter.

Bears lay claim to South No rest for


the weary

Menlo-Atherton is now the class of the


Peninsula Athletic League South Division.
The M-A girls basketball team rolled to a
44-32 victory at Hilldale Wednesday night
in a battle for rst place in the PAL South
Division. Both teams entered into play with
identical 7-1 records in league.
It was a big game for both teams, M-A
head coach Markisha Coleman. I think
both teams came out and played hard for all
32 minutes. But were denitely glad that we
were on the winning side. It was a good victory for our girls.
M-A hasnt been playing at full strength
for a majority of its league schedule after
center Ofa Sili suffered a knee injury Jan.
10. Last Friday, Sili made her rst appearance in nearly three weeks by playing sparingly in a blowout of Carlmont.
Against Hillsdale though, Sili was much
more of a factor, earning substantial secondhalf minutes to match guard Ilana Baer for a
team-high 12 points. M-As Megan Sparrow
grabbed a game-high seven rebounds and
Sili added six. Bears freshman center Greer
Hoyem added eight points and four
rebounds.
I think were fortunate to have two really
good [centers], Coleman said. One day it
may be the Greer show, the next day it may
be the Ofa show. But tonight they worked
well together.
The Bears (8-1 in PAL Bay, 16-5 overall)
outscored the Knights in every quarter. After
a quick Hillsdale bucket to start the game,
M-A never again trailed. Hillsdale (7-2, 147) got a score from sophomore Caelynn
Hwang midway through the second quarter
to tie it at 15-15, but neither team scored for
the following three minutes amid a
turnover-fest. M-A committed 16 turnovers
in the game, nine of them coming in the
second quarter.
But with just over a minute to play in the
half, the Baer sisters got M-A cooking when
Ilana Baer hit senior Naomi Baer with a
wicked bounce pass that the elder sister took
to the hoop, giving M-A a 17-15 edge. The

Hillsdale, Mills boys battle to scoreless draw


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Mills has been Hillsdales toughest challenge this season on the boys soccer pitch.
Earlier this year, Mills defeated Hillsdale
for the first time in the history of two programs, according to Knights head coach
Andy Hodzic. The Vikings backed up that 21 victory with a scoreless tie Wednesday at
Hillsdale.
While the Vikings have won the battle
between the two Peninsula Athletic League

Ocean Division teams this season, the


Knights are on pace to ultimately win the
war. With the tie, Hillsdale (5-1-3 in PAL
Ocean, 13-1-6 overall) remains in sole possession of second place with Mills (4-2-3,
4-4-6) in third in the Ocean Division standings.
Theyre well coached, Hodzic said of
Mills. Theyre a good team.
Hillsdale maintained its attack throughout and had some excellent opportunities
with five shots on goal. The play of Mills
back row and several diving saves by soph-

omore goalkeeper Damon Nixon-Cross


kept the Vikings dominant defensive performance intact.
[Nixon-Cross] had two decent saves,
Mills head coach Craig Dillie said. He wasnt tested as much as I thought he could have
been, which Im very happy for because Ive
seen what Hillsdale can do and we were fortunate again, the way that we played.
Dillie said he was frustrated with Mills
inability to finish shots.
Mills was offline with a shot on its first
chance of the game. It was senior Carlos

Dantas who took a cross into the middle and


fired a shot that sailed just over the crossbar
from 20 yards out.
Then the Vikings had their best chance in
the 20th minute when junior midfielder Jun
Jang had a steal 30 yards from goal and
dashed to create a 1-on-1 matchup with the
Hillsdale goalkeeper Michael Golden, who
made a nice diving play to deflect it.
The shot was Mills only legitimate shot
on goal in the contest.

David Shaw class
for

during his high school career in

He has ridiculous catch range,
Shaw said of Arcega-Whiteside.
Guys can be pushing him or bumping him and anything close to him,
hell get.
Shaw called Irwin a special route
runner. I told him he was the best
route runner in the nation in high
school. Hes a guy you cant cover.
The Cardinal also picked up safety
Justin Reid, whose older brother,
Eric, plays for the San Francisco
49ers. Former 49ers and Stanford
coach Jim Harbaugh, now at
Michigan, unsuccessfully recruited
Eric to Stanford, who chose to
remain in state and attended LSU.
Im not surprised, Shaw said.

We knew we had a good chance. But


he and his brother are great students.
He came on a visit and had a blast.
Shaw called Justin underrated as a
safety. Ben Edwards, one of the toprated safeties in the nation out of
Florida, also chose Stanford.
Two players fullback Houston
Heimuli and linebacker Gabe Reid
signed but will go on Mormon
missions before enrolling in 2017.
Linebacker Sean Barton will enroll
with this class after originally signing in 2013 and going on his mission.
Defensive tackle Wesley Annan

may be on the field as freshmen.
Shaw acknowledged Stanford is not
deep there and recruited the position out of need.
Im impressed with how mature
this class is, Shaw said. There are
guys who are physically ready for
college football. Theres a chance

Brian Chaffin, a center out of
North Carolina, was the first to send

Curry explodes for 51 in win


By Antonio Gonzalez
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND Stephen Curry scored a season-high 51 points


and made a season-best 10 3-pointers, rallying the Golden
State Warriors from an early 22-point deficit to down the Dallas
Mavericks 128-114 on Wednesday night.
Curry connected on 10 of 16 shots from beyond the arc and
16 of 26 overall. The All-Star point guard and MVP candidate
put on a dazzling dribbling display to
match his streaky shooting stroke, helping
the NBA-leading Warriors (39-8) complete
their biggest comeback of the season in
front of a roaring sellout crowd of 19,596.
Chandler Parsons scored 24 points, and
Tyson Chandler had 21 points and 17
rebounds in a disappointing defeat for
Dallas, which played without injured point
guard Rajon Rondo again. The Mavericks
Steph Curry led 40-18 in the first quarter before Curry
carried Golden State back.
The Warriors improved to a league-best 23-2 at home.
Curry finished just shy of his 54-point masterpiece at
Madison Square Garden on Feb. 27, 2013. He made a careerhigh 11 3-pointers in that game, a 109-105 loss to the Knicks,
but could savor a home victory this time.
Curry scored 41 points on nine 3-pointers to give Golden
State a 101-98 lead through three quarters. The Warriors
stretched that margin to 112-101 early in the fourth with Curry
on the bench, then called him back when the Mavericks moved
within seven.
The quick-footed guard guided the Warriors in the right direction, and put the game out of reach when he ran down an errant

Nowitzki while going for a layup. Curry made both free throws,
then hit another pair the next time down to give Golden State a
124-113 lead with 1:35 remaining.
Curry capped his big night with a step-back 3-pointer in the
final minute, setting off chants of M-V-P! M-V-P! throughout
the building.
His hot-shooting performance only highlighted an impressive display by the Warriors, who hit 19 of 38 shots from 3point range. The Mavericks made 10 of 30 from beyond the arc.
Klay Thompson had 18 points, and reserves Marreese
Speights and Leandro Barbosa scored 14 each as the Warriors
won their third straight game. They begin a stretch of 10 of 11
on the road Friday night at East-leading Atlanta.
The Mavericks (33-18) had won three in a row and looked
poised at the outset to extend their streak in the NBAs toughest venue for visiting teams.
With Chandler gobbling up rebounds and shooters all over
the floor, Dallas took advantage of the Warriors inside and out
at the start. The Mavericks went ahead 24-4 in a little more than
six minutes, stretched their lead to 22 and held on for a 42-25
advantage at the end of the first quarter.
It was the most points the Warriors had allowed in any quarter this season.
Golden State answered with an equally impressive second
quarter, opening with a 15-2 run bolstered by the bench. The
Warriors trimmed Dallas lead to 62-58 at halftime and went
ahead early in the third quarter, with Curry creating his own
shots and bringing fans screaming out of their seats after every
swish.

Sharks lose back to back


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CALGARY, Alberta Kris Russell scored his first goal of


the season, Jonas Hiller stopped 28 shots, and the Calgary
Flames beat the San Jose Sharks 3-1 on Wednesday night.
Jiri Hudler and Mason Raymond also scored to help the
Flames improve to 4-1-0 on a six-game homestand, which
concludes Friday against Pittsburgh.
John Scott scored for San Jose, which lost in regulation
for the first time in its last five games (3-1-1).
Calgary opened the scoring at 9:28 of the second period
when Russells shot from inside the blue line was partially
stopped by Alex Stallock but still squeaked through.
It was the first of three consecutive goals for the Flames,
who led 3-0. Calgary moved from the second wild card spot
in the Western Conference up to second place in the Pacific
Division.
The Flames also matched their season high of nine games
above .500, which they were also at on Dec. 4, prior to
going on an eight-game winless skid.
Calgary took a 2-0 lead at 11:55 of the second on the
power play. Johnny Gaudreau patiently carried the puck

Flames 3, Sharks 1
behind the San Jose net then centered it to Hudler for his
15th goal.
With less than 2 minutes left in the second, Raymond was
set up perfectly by Joe Colborne and sent a one-timer past
Stallock.
The Sharks lone goal came when Scott banged in his second of the season 2:48 into the third.
San Jose had the territorial edge in the third but could not
get any closer.
Hiller has given up only eight goals over the past five
games and improved to 17-14-2 on the season.
Stallock finished with 20 saves.
NOTES : Mikael Backlund (illness) returned to the
Flames lineup after missing one game. ... San Jose placed
Tye McGinn on injured reserve and recalled Chris Tierney
from Worcester of the AHL. ... Calgary has led after the first
period an NHL-low nine times this season. ... After narrowly escaping a serious injury Monday night when a skate
nearly cut his wrist, Gaudreau wore wrist guards inside his
gloves.

Sports brief
Charlie Sifford, first black
player on PGA Tour, dies at 92
Charlie Sifford, who only wanted a chance to play and
broke the color barrier in golf as the first black PGA Tour
member, died Tuesday night, the PGA of America said.
Sifford, who recently had suffered a stroke, was 92.
Details of his death and funeral arrangements were not
immediately available.
His love of golf, despite many barriers in his path,
strengthened him as he became a beacon for diversity in our
game, said PGA of America President Derek Sprague. By
his courage, Dr. Sifford inspired others to follow their
dreams. Golf was fortunate to have had this exceptional
American in our midst.
A proud man who endured racial taunts and threats, Sifford
set modest goals and achieved more than he imagined.
Sifford challenged the Caucasian-only clause and the PGA
rescinded it in 1961. He won the Greater Hartford Open in
1967 and the Los Angeles Open in 1969. He also won the
1975 Senior PGA Championship, five years before the
Champions Tour was created.
His career was fully recognized in 2004 when he became
the first black inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
Last November, President Barack Obama presented him
with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Jack Nicklaus and
Arnold Palmer are the only other golfers who received that
honor.

BEARS

Continued from page 11

Continued from page 11

We missed eight golden opportunities, Dillie said. Their


goalie was the reason that this was still 0-0.
As the first half progressed though, so did Hillsdales momentum. The Knights had difficulty finding a tempo due to a major
lineup change. According to Hodzic, Hillsdales best player,
Angel Hernendez, came out of last Wednesday's 0-0 tie against
first-place Aragon with a leg injury. As a result, he was unavailable for the Mills matchup. He also missed the first game
between the two teams because of injury.
So, Hillsdale looked to forward John Cole to fill the void. The
senior got one close chance late in the game when, in the 73rd
minute, he executed a bicycle kick on a long throw-in from
David Seligman that sailed just over goal.
Otherwise, the Knights relied predominantly on attacks from
their midfielders. The back-to-front strategy was a cause of
Hillsdale starting five players in the back row.
We play two stoppers, Hodzic said. Thats our play because
we are pretty slow on defense. We have to play zone. We cant
play man-to-man because [Mills is] fast.
Hillsdales strength nearly paid off towards the end of the first
half when, in the 38th minute, Inigo Sanchez came away with a
hotly contested exchange at midfield. After several changes of
possession on a barb of sliding tackles, Sanchez took it and
drove swiftly up the right side to eventually earn a corner kick.
From the corner, Zoen Ebinger lofted a ball into traffic allowing Hillsdales Nicolas Naar to head a shot on goal at an exposed
net. But Mills defender Darren Chan read the play and got to the
vacant spot to deny the Knights. Austin Mah came away with
the rebound for Hillsdale, but shot a header out of bounds to finish the exciting exchange.
In the second half, Hillsdale took off like a bullet from the
opening kickoff when Bryan Lau flew up the right side, angled
around the Mills back row and fired a good high shot on goal on
which Nixon-Cross made a good save.
Nixon-Cross made an even better save in the 59th minute.
After a quick Hillsdale advance into the penalty box, Mario
Arguelo buzzed a cross shot on which Nixon-Cross made a long
dive to deflect out of bounds. The ensuing Hillsdale corner kick
was uneventful.

next time down the oor, Naomi Baer missed a short baseline
jump shot, but Ilana Baer crashed hard and timed the offensive rebound perfectly to score on a stellar putback.
M-A got quite the scare soon after though when Ilana Baer
limped off the oor with a twisted ankle. She did not return to
the oor until the end of the third quarter.
It was ne, Ilana Baer said. I just tripped and twisted it.
Throughout the rst half, Hillsdale simply could not bury a
3-pointer. The Knights, who live and die from beyond arc,
shot 0 for 11 from 3-point land over the opening 16 minutes.
Yet the Bears managed to take just a 19-15 lead into halftime. M-As saving grace was its dominant effort in the post,
outrebounding Hillsdale 22-10 throughout the rst half.
Still, the Bears reassessed their post strategy in the halftime
locker room, after which they leaned heavily on Sili. The
senior got a majority of her minutes in the second half.
At halftime we talked a lot about staying in our 2-3
(defense), Ilana Baer said. We know [Hillsdale] is a 3-point
shooting team. So, we needed to make sure to hustle out and
contest all their shots. Then we needed to work on our
rebounding to box them out, which I think we did.
Hillsdale kept it close for most of the third quarter. Hwang
and Raichel Tjan each hit 3-pointers while Hoyems thirdquarter performance spurred the Bears to maintain their
advantage. She had six points and two rebounds in the opening four minutes of the half. But the Knights still looked
poised for a comeback when Tjan had a lay-in off a beautiful
blind bounce pass from Adesia Cotton to cut the M-A lead to
27-25.
Then the Bears put the game away.
M-A started an 8-0 run at the end of the quarter and did not
let up until the fourth quarter when Ilana Baer hit her rst
bucket of the second half to give the Bears a 35-25 lead.
Hillsdale got a game-high 15 points from Hwang on an
otherwise abysmal Hillsdale night from the oor. The
Knights shot just 12 of 56 in the game, including 3 for 22
from 3-point land.
Youve got to make shots in a game like this, Hillsdale
head coach Mike Ciardella said.
With just three regular-season games remaining, M-A is
now in strong command in the PAL South Division. The
Bears three remaining games are with Burlingame, Woodside
and Sequoia. At 5-3 in league, Burlingame is the only team of
the three with a record above the .500 mark. Sequoia and
Woodside have three wins between them.
Hillsdale has only won two league championships in the
history of its girls basketball program, dating back to the
mid-1970s.
Ciardella said his team knew what was at stake Wednesday
with the game essentially being for all the marbles in the
South Division.
It stings a little bit, Ciardella said. We had a chance to
do something they dont do around here very often.
For M-A, the return of Sili was as important as the win
itself. The senior center has had a history of knee problems
and was already banged up when she hobbled off the oor Jan.
10 against Sacred Heart Prep.
Sili said she was worried, for a time, she wouldnt return
this season.
But I love playing basketball, she said. Ill do whatever
it takes to get back.

Mills senior forward Jordan Ganim battles with Hillsdales


Shota Suzuki for possession in a showdown for second place
in the Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division that ended
in a 0-0 tie.
Hodzic said his team didn't shoot as crisply as they could have
when the scoring opportunities arose.
We can have more shots, Hodzic said. But we should score
these goals.
Mills had its best second-half chance in the 69th minute when
the Vikings back row wrestled possession on a deep Hillsdale
threat. Mills found an outlet to sophomore Luke Yee, who
streaked up the left sideline on a near coast-to-coast drive. Yee
got the ball into Chan for a through ball, but Chan could not
entirely control it and had his shot sail far wide on a 1-on-1
matchup with the keeper.
With five games remaining in the season, both Hillsdale and
Mills are still mathematically in picture for the PAL Ocean
Division title which grants the only guaranteed berth into the
Central Coast Section playoffs. But it is currently Aragons
league to lose. The Dons (7-0-2, 10-2-3) kept their unbeaten
league record intact Wednesday with a 3-1 win over Terra Nova.

Syracuse self-imposes
basketball playoff ban
By John Kekis
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Syracuse University announced


Wednesday that it has instituted a
self-imposed postseason ban for
the current mens basketball season as part of its case pending
before the NCAA Committee on
Infractions.
The school initiated the case,
which includes academics, when it
self-reported potential athletic
department violations to the
NCAA in 2007. School officials
said Wednesday none of the conduct occurred after 2012 and no current student-athlete is involved.
The ban also includes the ACC
tournament. After Syracuses
announcement, the conference
released an updated bracket for a
tournament shortened by one
game.
Coach Jim Boeheim says hes
disappointed, especially for senior
Rakeem Christmas, but supports
the decision.
I believe the university is doing
the right thing by acknowledging
that past mistakes occurred,
Boeheim said in a statement.
In 2012, Syracuse declared former center Fab Melo ineligible for
the NCAA tournament days before
it started. Melo also missed three
Big East games during the season
because of an academic issue. Early
in the 2012-13 season, former forward James Southerland sat out six
games for an academic issue but
helped lead the Orange to the Final
Four.
In March 2012, school officials
said the university had self-reported possible violations of its internal drug policy by former members
of the team and that the NCAA was
investigating. None of the members of that team was involved.
The school also acknowledged
the NCAA had inquired into old
allegations that players were
allowed to practice and play
despite being in violation of the
schools drug policy.
We are fully supportive of
Syracuse and its decision to selfimpose sanctions by removing
themselves from any mens basketball postseason opportunities, ACC Commissioner John
Swofford said.

Mickelson thinks Woods will have last laugh


SAN DIEGO Phil Mickelson says Tiger Woods will
have the last laugh on critics talking about a short game in
disarray.
Mickelson said Wednesday at Torrey Pines that Woods
has one of the best short games of all time, and that his
overall game is the best ever. Mickelson says the short
game can feel uncomfortable when a player has been away
from the game.
Woods shot 82 in the Phoenix Open, the highest score
of his career. It was only his second competition in six
months because he took time off to recover from back surgery.

It may be too late for Goodell and the

just let the legal process play out while

makes its way through the court system. If
guilty, hes cut. If innocent, reinstate him.
If he pleads out, adjust the suspension

Its good to have (an inside-outside
game), Fine Lauese said. We can go
inside, we can go outside. It opens a lot of
options for us.
After the teams traded baskets to tie the
game at 12, Sequoia (9-0, 18-3) threatened
to run away and hide from the Panthers.
From the 2:57 mark of the first quarter to the
6:23 mark of the second, the Cherokees
outscored Burlingame 23-0.
Sequoia jump-started the run by turning up
the intensity defensively, which enabled

the Cherokees to get out in transition.


Defense is everything, Bene said. We
definitely try to jump the passing lanes.
While it was Bene and Lauese leading the
Sequoia offense early, guard DJ Houston
made his presence felt in the second quarter.
Houston scored 13 of his 15 points in second period, knocking down four 3-pointers
in the process.
Burlingame, however, never quit. The
Panthers whittled away at the Sequoia lead
and eventually cut it to 12 at halftime, 4634. The Panthers outscored Sequoia 19-10
over the final 5:33 of the half to get back in
the game.
We went up by 20 or whatever, but we
knew it wasnt over, Fine Lauese said. No
big lead is safe against Burlingame.
Burlingame adjusted well.
Burlingame guard Justin Gutang had a big

hand in getting the Panthers and keeping


them in the game. Gutang scored 29
points, hitting five 3-pointers along the
way. He scored 17 in the second half.
Tyler Garlitos added 11 points for the
Panthers, while Vinnie Ferrari chipped in
with 10.
Burlingame maintained its momentum in
the third quarter, as the Panthers outscored
the Cherokees 15-9 to trail 55-49 going
into the fourth quarter.
Burlingame made one final push to start
the final eight minutes, opening the period
with a 7-4 run, closing to 59-56 with 5:15
left.
The Panthers would get no closer, however, and Harames was disappointed to see his
team rush things down the stretch.
It was almost like it was 10 (point
deficit) instead of three, Harames said.

Five ways to make a kitchen more germ-free


By Katherine Roth
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Even the tidiest kitchens might be harboring harmful bacteria, and often where theyre least expected. Paying more
attention to a few often-overlooked places can help keep
your household safer, experts say.
For starters, home cooks should have four watchwords,
according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
clean, separate, cook and chill. Watch for cross-contamination, particularly with meats and vegetables; cook everything thoroughly; and keep both raw and cooked foods sufficiently cold when needed.
Then, cleaning a few often-overlooked areas in the kitchen
could offer additional protection from E. coli, Salmonella,
Listeria, yeast and mold, according to NSF International, a
non-profit organization based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, that
has been promoting proper cleaning of kitchen tools and
appliances since the 1940s. NSF International has put out
recommendations on kitchen hot spots based on studies done
in 2011 and again in 2013:
1. Scary Sponges. You can either get away from sponges
altogether and use dish cloths or rags, which can be sanitized,
or, if you do use sponges, put a wet sponge in the microwave
for 2 minutes to kill most of the harmful bacteria, said Lisa
Yakas, a microbiologist with NSF. Betsy Goldberg, home
director for Real Simple magazine, said, Many people mistakenly think that rinsing a sponge with water is enough, but
sponges really need to be washed in the top rack of the dishwasher or wet and then microwaved for 2 minutes, and obviously, if it smells or has loose pieces, its time to throw it
away.
2. Ghastly gaskets: Dangerous beasties can lurk in the
hard-to-reach areas under the thin, removable plastic gaskets
found around the lids of some food storage containers, and
also around blender gaskets and blades, according to Yakas.
This one people really find surprising. But think about how
many times people make smoothies and just put the blender
in the dishwasher or rinse it then use it again. In our studies,

On Wednesday, Serra officials said they

to
Superintendent
Maureen
Huntington who said that Cordileones document was simply a reaffirmation of longstanding church policies.
Cordileones document also states that
marriage is between one man and one
woman, that sperm donation and using a
surrogate to reproduce are also gravely
evil.
Cordileone also says that a teacher at any
of the four schools could face discipline for
using contraception.
Huntington said the archbishop is simply
bringing clarity to what the church stands
for.
These are things that have been part of
the teachings of the Catholic Church for
decades and centuries that are sometimes in
conflict with social norms, Huntington
said.
The new statements will be added to faculty handbooks as the Archdiocese negotiates
a new contract with teachers that clarifies
Catholic schools exist to affirm and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ as held and
taught by his Catholic Church.
Huntington said the Daily Journal was the
only news organization to contact her
Wednesday about the issue. She received no
calls from the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and
Transgender community about the controversial language, Huntington said.

said.

Catholic Church is meant to allow the
schools to better fulfill their missions,
according to the Archdiocese.
The statements are taken from the
Catechism of the Catholic Church that clarifies the belief that all extra-marital sexual
relationships are gravely evil, including
adultery, masturbation, fornication, the
viewing of pornography and homosexual
relations.
Cordileone sent a letter to the four
schools calling on teachers to avoid contradicting church teachings.
This pressure is exerted relentlessly in
the media, in entertainment, in politics, in
academia, in corporations in short, in all
the influences of popular culture,
Cordileone wrote in the letter to the schools
about contemporary culture and the pressures it exerts on society to conform to a
certain agenda.
Pope Francis, in December, said the
Catholic Church needs to support families
with gay children but recently said in a visit
to the Philippines in January that the family is threatened by growing efforts on the
part of some to redefine the very institution
of marriage.
While some say Francis has softened the
churchs stance on homosexuality,
Cordileone clearly has not.
Last year, he led thousands of protesters
in prayer against same-sex marriage outside
the U.S. Supreme Court.
In Lunds letter to Serra parents, he writes:
We will continue to be a remarkably supportive environment that promotes compassion and respect for all members of our
community.

Close cropping is an easy


way to gain garden space
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Gardeners react no differently than anyone else when times are tough: They tighten spending and try to squeeze more from
their budgets. Some turn to close cropping
crowding plants as a cheap and easy way
to maximize yields from minimal space.
Placing garden plants shoulder-to-shoulder is not a new idea. Native Americans are
credited with introducing the Three
Sisters concept, in which corn, beans and
squash were planted alongside one another.
The nitrogen-rich climbing beans used the
corn stalks for structure, while the groundhugging squash smothered weeds and
reduced soil evaporation. The result: three
interdependent and eminently edible crops
produced from the same ground.
If done right, massing plants in their
growing beds is also an efficient way for
urban gardeners to make the most of patios
or decks, balconies or fire escapes.
Many gardeners find themselves in a

is among 20 states that allow for personal
belief exemptions and 48 that allow for religious exemptions.
A Washington state lawmaker introduced a
bill Wednesday that would remove the personal belief allowance for an exemption in
that state.
Public health officials believe an immunization rate of at least 90 percent is critical
to minimizing the potential for a disease
outbreak. Californias kindergarteners met
that threshold at the start of this school
year, according to state statistics: 2 percent
were exempted because of their parents personal beliefs and another half a percent were
exempted because of their parents religion.
Less than one-fifth of a percent of all students - about 1,000 - had a medical vaccine
exemption that would be preserved under the
bill.
Pan, who previously served in the
Assembly, was the author of another vaccination bill that took effect last year. It
requires parents who dont have their children vaccinated for non-religious reasons to
get a note from the doctors office before

produce in the same amount of space, or
grow similar amounts in a reduced area,
said Ben Sturtevant, a marketing specialist
with Johnnys Selected Seeds in Winslow,
Maine. This leads to finding ways to
change methods or use new methods of production.
Traditional single-row spacing varies,
but smaller crops like radishes, leaf lettuces and beets usually are assigned about a
foot between the rows, Sturtevant said.
Larger plants, including beans, cabbage
and broccoli, generally are given 2 to 3
feet.
Garden beds can be compressed, however, if managed properly. That includes letting enough air flow around the plants to
prevent mildew, Sturtevant said.
It also means using rich soil, said Derek
Fell, author of more than 100 garden publications. If you have a lot of nutrition in
the soil, then a lot of plants wont mind

A spokesman for Gov. Jerry Brown, who
signed that bill, did not say if the governor
would oppose efforts to end exemptions.
The Governor believes that vaccinations
are profoundly important and a major public
health benefit and any bill that reaches his
desk will be closely considered,
spokesman Evan Westrup wrote in an email.
Parents cite a variety of reasons for not
immunizing their children: religious values,
concerns the shots could cause illness and a
belief that allowing children to get sick helps
them to build a stronger immune system.
The American Academy of Pediatrics says
doctors should bring up the importance of
vaccinations during visits but should
respect a parents wishes unless theres a
significant risk to the child.
The California bill is also backed by
Democratic
Assemblywoman
Lorena
Gonzalez and Democratic Sen. Ben Allen, a
former Santa Monica school board member.
Separately on Wednesday, U. S. Sens.
Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein called
on Californias top health official to reconsider the states policy on vaccine exemptions in light of the measles outbreak.
We believe there should be no such thing
as a philosophical or personal belief
exemption, since everyone uses public
spaces, the Democratic senators wrote in

Eek, theres a foot in my pot! Growing rabbits foot fern


By Lee Reich
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Theres a fat, furry, tan foot creeping over


the edge of the pot in the hanging basket
over my desk. No cause for alarm. It just
shows that my plant is growing happily.
That foot is a hairy, creeping stem of rabbits foot fern. Taking the basket down off
its hook, I see that the plant has other feet
making their way to the edge of the pot.
New leafy fronds spring forth from the topsides of these feet.
Besides its interesting feet, rabbits foot
is, among ferns, relatively easy to grow.
Ferns became popular houseplants during
Victorian times because of their lushness and
tolerance for relatively dim conditions. In
those days, however, homes were cooler and
moister, and thus more to the liking of ferns.
Rabbits foot ferns can tolerate drier and
warmer conditions than most other ferns. In
their natural habitat, in southeast Asian jungles, these ferns nestle between rocks or in
the crotches of trees, rather than growing in
soil.
Rabbits foot is not the only fern with
feet. Common names of some of its relatives include deers foot fern, squirrels foot
fern and Polynesian foot fern. Rabbits
foot, though, is the most commonly offered

of the lot, and the best because it is evergreen and has the largest feet. Squirrels
foot fern, incidentally, has red fur.
I attribute the health of my fern to the
good drainage of the potting mix in which
it grows and the cool, bright room that it
calls home. Any potting mix can be made
similarly suitable for this plant with some
extra perlite or gravel. And the pot must, of
course, have drainage holes.
The plants exuberant growth is striking.
Mine started out in a small pot at a western
window a couple of autumns ago, and
remained demure through its first winter. A
slightly larger pot and the brightness of
spring then spurred 2-foot-long fronds that
threatened to gobble up that corner of the
room, or at least push the plant off the windowsill. The plant has since moved again,
this time to a large hanging basket where it
can freely spread its lush, 2-to-3-foot-long,
rippling fronds in all directions.
With such luxuriant growth, you might
wonder what Ill do when all the rabbits feet
this plant can muster have bailed out of the
pot. Thats when Ill make new plants by
merely cutting off some pieces of feet with
roots attached and pressing them, without
burying them, into fresh pots of soil.
Rabbits foot ferns, like rabbits, multiply
quickly.

Embracing the new feminine


By Meissa Rayworth
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A year ago, menswear-inspired decorating was wildly popular. Interior


designers hung sharply tailored
draperies alongside furniture covered
in pinstripes. Sophisticated shades
of gray were everywhere, as was navy
blue.
But since the pendulum always
swings, were starting to see fresh
feminine spaces, says interior
designer Brian Patrick Flynn,
regardless of who lives in them.

The trend that designers are calling


the new feminine isnt a return to
an excess of florals, shabby-chic
lace and other cliches of feminine
decor from a decade ago. Instead,
feminine style has evolved into
an aesthetic thats classic with a
soft, eclectic spin, says Flynn,
founder
of
Flynnside
Out
Productions.
Pretty is back, but designers are
using traditional florals on furniture
with edgy, sleek lines to create modern mashups. Even the color pink
has enjoyed a makeover: Pantones

color of the year for 2015 is a


sexy, dark pink called marsala.
There was a period in design when
pretty or feminine were considered bad words, says New Yorkbased designer Young Huh. It was
considered lightweight and not serious. Ideal rooms were masculine, a
bit somber, devoid of pattern and
softness. Recently, there is a return
to appreciating traditional design
and also pretty rooms.
Believe it or not, Huh says, there
is a new generation discovering
chintz and florals.

GOALS
Continued from page 1
housing requirement is for very low-,
low- and moderate-income units; but
cities, suffering from the loss of redevelopment agencies, must often rely
on developers to dedicate a portion of
new projects as affordable. Therefore,
city staff estimated building the
required 311 affordable units would
actually necessitate constructing 756
units.
To accommodate the additional
units, the citys housing element will
set an affordable housing overlay zone
at four established complexes
Beach Cove, Sand Cove, Shadow Cove
and the Franciscan. Two of the apartment buildings would be given denser
zoning allowing 35 units per acre
instead of just 20 per acre, according to
a city staff report.
While a group of residents has urged
the council not to approve any new
housing developments until current
projects are completed, some councilmembers reassured the public passing the state-mandated document didnt
guarantee the units would be built.
To some, reiterating the need to
appease state standards while simultaneously insinuating the housing elements intentions may not come to
fruition seemed disingenuous.
The whole premise of the meeting
[Monday] night was were doing this
because we have to. We dont have any
intention of building it and its only to
fulfill the [states] requirements,
Perez said. So thats fundamentally
disconnected. From my policy considerations, I dont believe its prudent or
in the best interest of civic mindedness to create a plan that you have no
intention of fulfilling.
Members of the group Foster City
Residents
for
Responsible
Development, who advocated against
the city passing the housing element,
said the biggest accomplishment of
the meeting was raising awareness
about the citys housing challenges.

eventually talk with him face to face.
Decker said police were willing to
wait as long as necessary to ensure that
the situation was resolved without
anyone being harmed.
The situation was resolved about
12:45 p.m.
Residents were troubled by the
standoff as emergency response vehicles barricaded the block, heavily
armed police officials moved through-

Of course were pleased in one sense


that we had a split vote and it was a
process in which the councilmembers
and the public and the staff began to
think more deeply about the housing
element and what it really means to the
city, said Bob Cushman, of Foster
City Residents for Responsible
Development. But it wasnt a proud
day for the council because theyre
basically saying its a scam and a shell
game, but theyre voting for it.
Mayor Art Kiesel said the entire
region has more jobs than housing and
with Foster City encouraging businesses to relocate and expand within
the community, it should contribute to
solving the problem.
If we embrace them coming in with
their sales taxes, their property taxes
and oh, by the way theyre bringing in
new people and were telling them to
go live somewhere else, what message
are we sending them? The word I
brought up was hypocrisy, Kiesel
said.
Bronitsky wrote in an email to the
Daily Journal that he voted against the
housing element because it would have
given owners of the four apartment
complexes the authority to redevelop
at a higher density.
Instead, he suggested rezoning the
city-owned Mariners Point Golf Center
on Third Avenue for housing, not to
start building on it, but to show the
state that we have the ability to meet
our housing needs, Bronitsky wrote
in an email. The positive piece of that
recommendation is it keeps control of
growth in the hands of the city, rather
than placing it in the hands of developers or private property owners
where there is less control.
Bronitsky argued rezoning the golf
course would serve as a placeholder
allowing the city to further investigate
the impacts of developing more housing within the city.
Perez shared concern that the new
zoning making higher density permissible means the city cannot easily turn
down a developers proposal.
The biggest problem is the fundamental disconnect between what the
out the neighborhood and helicopters
hovered overhead.
Its concerning, this has been a
quiet area, said Sandra Rider, who has
lived nearby for 50 years.
Neighbor Ellen Chaboya agreed.
This is unsettling. I just hope the
person is OK and not hurting anyone,
she said.
Neither said they knew the man.
Police issued a shelter in place to
residents in the neighborhood around
8:30 a. m. Wednesday. SWAT team
members and a tactical negotiations
team from the San Mateo Police
Department contributed to the
response.
Decker said police in San Mateo will

community wants and what the state


mandates. Right now, the citizens
dont want any more housing, theyve
been pretty consistent on that, Perez
said. The city as a whole needs to
make a decision whether it supports
additional housing and the affordable
housing component and if it does,
than it should look citywide and adjust
citywide, not just three or four projects
that are already dense.
Kiesel and Councilman Steve
Okamoto were firmly against the proposal to rezone the golf course and said
its location wasnt appropriate for
housing.
Okamoto said the housing element
serves as an important roadmap for
future planning and the city should follow its guidelines.
Even with the affordable housing
overlay zone, property owners of the
four apartment complexes would still
need to follow planning protocol, he
added.
These are properties that could be
developed and additional housing
added without expanding the footprint.
But the bottom line is that even
though they have the ability to add
housing, it still requires city approval,
its not just an automatic here you can
do it, Okamoto said.
One apparent consensus is the members of the council are leaning toward
the communitys requests to wait until
the impacts of current housing projects are realized before approving further developments.
Vice Mayor Gary Pollard said the
housing element was a necessary
process, but expects housing will continue to be a weighty topic in Foster
City.
Were not done with this issue. But
its reasonable, managed growth is
how Im approaching everything,
Pollard said. Its not a commitment to
build, its not a commitment not to
build. Its examining case by case in
the long term.

your ideas until you are ready to present and market
what you have to offer. Sharing your ideas prematurely
