Concerts Up Front and Center in Half Moon Bay

Police reports

Coastsider rents space at Oceano Hotel to present handpicked musicians

Same old problem

By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

A cozy acoustic haven hosted the first


Concerts Up Front and Center at Pillar
Point Harbor last weekend.
Founder Linda Romano said she was
inspired to start a business that will present
several musical performances throughout
the year in the intimate Sand Bar at the
Oceano Hotel and Spa in Half Moon Bay.
Ive always noticed when people hear
good music, regardless whether its rap,
whether its alternative or whatever, if that
song is good, it makes people smile. And
theres not enough of that in the world
today and thats why I want to bring it to
my community, Romano said.
Romano contends music is about quality,
not quantity. Instead of hosting weekly
gatherings, Romano said shes renting
space as needed at the hotels Harbor
Village Mall to present a broad genre of
performers.
The concerts will be handpicked
Sundays. So its not necessarily an every
weekend drudgery thing like all the other
venues have to do. So that gives me the
opportunity to book quality people,
Romano said.
Sundays premier brought five-time
Grammy nominee Wayne Wallace and the
Latin Jazz Project with a performance that
had visitors spilling out of the venue and
dancing in the halls of the cathedral-sounding mall, Romano said.
Its nice because in some instances

Suspect in blast near NAACP


office: Target was accountant
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. The man
accused of setting off a small explosion last
month that rattled nerves because of its
proximity to a Colorado NAACP office says
he was in a rage over his financial problems
and was actually targeting his accountant,
according to court documents filed Friday.
Thaddeus Murphy, 44, told federal agents
that he made the pipe bomb out of a shotgun
shell and fireworks fuses, the records said.
He said he was angry because the accountant wouldnt return his phone calls or give
him back his tax records. It was unclear
whether Murphy knew that the accountant,
Steve DeHaven, died in June in Mesa,
Arizona.
DeHaven pleaded guilty in 2010 to filing
false tax returns and was released from federal prison in April 2013.

those ticket prices are going to be high, but
its not different than playing at a huge stadium where youre a mile back. Where here,
you might pay the same price but youll be
at the musicians feet, Romano said. Its a
serious listening room for the discerning
music listener.
While neighboring businesses provide
regular entertainment, Romano said her
ability to hand-select dates and artists
brings music to the spotlight.
If you go to Pasta Moon, if you go to the
brewery, if you go to whatever, wherever,
they play live music but nobodys really
listening. Because youre busy talking or
youre busy eating or busy drinking,
Romano said. Theres no place here (on
the coast) where you can just go and listen
to music and pay attention to whats happening instead of having music as an afterthought.
While concert dates are apt to develop as
talent becomes available, Romano has
already booked two performances. Concerts
Up Front and Center has nearly sold out for
its March 8 hosting of Tommy Castro and
the Painkillers Blues, Romano said. Evie

Although she continues to work part time

career in entertainment.
Her experience includes time in the film

as having spent decades helping at the former Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society in
Half Moon Bay.
While the well-known coastal beatnik
venue recently closed after the passing of
its founder Pete Douglas, Romano said her
current efforts are in no way a carryover.
Instead, Romano said shes been blessed
to have the support of the Oceano Hotel to
use the Sand Bar. Nestled against the main
hotel, Romano said the harbor mall has a
surprising acoustic strength she hopes will
help to continue a prominent music scene
on the coast.
One time I was at the mall and there just
happened to be a classical string quartet
playing and you know how its enclosed in
glass, it sounded like it was in a cathedral it
was so beautiful, Romano said. I have the
connections to bring the talent here and to
be able to share it with those who live in

Superior Court names


new court executive officer
The San Mateo County Superior Court
judges voted Friday to appoint Deputy
Court Executive Officer Rodina Catalano to
the position of court executive officer, succeeding current CEO John Fitton, who
retires in August.
Catalano has worked in various positions
with the San Mateo County Superior Court
for nearly 29 years. Presiding Judge John L.
Grandsaert said the bench is both proud and
fortunate to have such an exemplary candidate to fill the position.
Fitton was named the San Mateo County
court executive officer in May 2005. During
his tenure, beginning in 2008, California
trial courts have been hit with more than a
billion dollars in state cuts, with recent
funding inadequate to sustain prior court
services. Grandsaert lauded Fitton for his

role in the courts administration and judicial leadership facing these challenges
directly and making decisions that
strengthened the court for the public benefit.
Catalano will work together with Fitton

HealthCare.gov woes: Wrong tax info sent out


By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON In a new setback for the


health care law and the people its supposed
to help, the government said Friday it made a
tax-reporting error thats fouling up the filings of nearly a million Americans.
After a successful sign-up season, the latest
goof could signal new problems with the
complex links between President Barack
Obamas health care overhaul and the nations
income tax system.
Officials said the government sent the
wrong tax information to about 800,000
HealthCare.gov customers, and theyre asking those affected to delay filing their 2014
returns. The issue involves a new government
form called a 1095-A, which is like a W-2
form for health care for people who got subsidized private coverage under Obamas law.
People can find out whether theyre affected
by logging in to their accounts at
HealthCare.gov, where they should find a

message indicating whether they were affected or not. They also can check by phoning
the federal customer service center at 800318-2596.
Separately, California announced earlier
that it had sent out inaccurate tax forms affecting about 100,000 households. The state is
not part of the federal market but runs its own
insurance exchange.
HealthCare.gov said in a blog post that the
federal mistake happened when information
on this years premiums was substituted for
what should been 2014 numbers. The website
had a technology meltdown when it was
launched back in 2013, but seemed to have
overcome its problems this enrollment season.
Its just another black mark on the admin-

istrations handling of the health care act,


said Roberton Williams, a senior fellow at the
nonpartisan Tax Policy Center in
Washington. They were hoping for a clean
season.
For many of these impacted taxpayers, the
tax refund could be the single largest financial
payout of the year, said Mark Ciaramitaro,
H&R Blocks vice president for health care.
Many people due a refund file well before the
April 15 deadline. They are being told to
wait, he added, further delaying access to
their tax refund.
On another matter, the administration also
announced a special sign-up extension for
uninsured people who would face the health
care laws tax penalties for the first time this
year.

County urges vaccinations for measles


By Dave Newlands
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

San Mateo County is responding to the


recent measles outbreak by reinforcing the
health programs and messaging it already
has in place.
Since January, San Mateo County Health
System has reported three confirmed cases
of measles, said Health System spokeswoman Robyn Thaw. Confirmed measles
cases are isolated in their homes, and their
families are monitored for symptoms.
At this time, the county is treating
measles as we do any communicable disease, which is to educate the public on the
importance of immunization, which protects the individual, family and the community, Thaw said.

Thaw reports that more than 98 percent of


San Mateo County families have immunized
their children, and the recommended vaccine schedule produces a very high immunity against measles.
Awareness that measles is a possibility is
integral to the response of the county and
its residents, as, Thaw said, measles usually begins with cough, runny nose and red
eyes and may be hard to distinguish from
cold or flu.
We sent out a health alert to all health
care providers in the county to consider
measles when seeing patients with a fever
and rash, and ensure all patients are appropriately immunized against measles, Thaw
said. We also notified schools with recommendations on how to prevent the spread of
measles, such as reviewing immunization

records for all staff and children.


We also work to ensure that places visited by people with confirmed measles notify
employees or the public, such as posting
exposure notices of an infectious disease.
This is standard practice for controlling the
spread of an infectious disease.
For families with children too young for
the measles vaccine, Thaw says that by
making sure your family is properly vaccinated, you can help prevent and stop the
spread of measles, and protect others, such
as infants too young to be vaccinated.
The countys Health System recommends
that those who feel they have been infected
with measles should review their immunization records, and monitor themselves for
seven to 21 days if they develop a fever or
an unexplained rash.

Finger-pointing, lawsuits

LOS ANGELES With an antibioticresistant superbug outbreak connected to
its facility, Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical

The maker of the product was careful not to
blame the hospital as it issued new cleaning
instructions emphasizing meticulous manual sterilization.
Things may not be so polite once lawyers
get involved.
Lawsuits are expected to follow the outbreak tied to two deaths and several infections, with the hospital and manufacturer
pointing fingers at each other.
Thats exactly the kind of skirmishing
youre going to see, said John Culhane,
co-director of the Family Health Law &
Policy Institute at the Widener University
School of Law in Delaware. The bottom
line is that the two defendants will be hauled
into court, and theyll be trying to do two
things: One, they didnt do anything

Dietary guidelines panel suggests tax on sugary foods


By Mary Clare Jalonick
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON A tax on sugary drinks


and snacks is one way a government panel
of nutrition experts thinks Americans can
be coaxed into eating better. Some members of Congress are already pushing back
on the idea, saying the panel has overstepped its bounds.
The panels recommendations will help
determine what gets into the new version
of dietary guidelines being prepared by the
Agriculture and Health and Human Services
departments. The advice includes eating
more fruit and vegetables and whole grain
and limiting added sugars and fat.
However, the panel goes beyond previous versions of the dietary guidelines by
suggesting a broad list of possible policy
changes a tax is just one that could
make it easier for people to follow that diet
advice.
Taxation on higher sugar- and sodiumcontaining foods may encourage consumers to reduce consumption and revenues generated could support health promotion efforts, the committee wrote as
part of the recommendations released this
week.
Such taxes have mostly failed to gain
traction around the country, though voters
in Berkeley approved a special, per-ounce
tax on sugary drinks in November. In New

Taxes on sugary drinks and snacks have mostly failed to gain traction around the country,
though voters in Berkeley approved a special, per-ounce tax on sugary drinks in November.
York City, former Mayor Michael
Bloomberg tried to cap the size of sugary
drinks sold in restaurants and other venues
at 16 ounces, but legal challenges spearheaded by the beverage industry brought
down the effort in the courts.
Other ideas put forth by the committee
were placing nutrition labels on the front

of food packages and requiring public


buildings to serve healthier foods. The
committee also suggested incentives for
eating fruits and vegetables, though it didnt detail how that could work. Panel members said incentives might be vouchers for
farmers markets or subsidies for growers or
grocery stores.

The panel endorsed adding a line on the


nutrition facts label for added sugars,
which the Obama administration has
already proposed. It also backed the
administrations standards for healthier
school lunches.
Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman
Pat Roberts, R-Kan., criticized the report
shortly after it came out Thursday, saying
the committee strayed from its sciencebased nutrition recommendations.
This is economic, not nutrition, policy, he said.
Congress weighed in on a draft of the
report last December, noting that the
dietary guidelines panel was poised to suggest a more environmentally friendly diet
of plant-based foods. In a massive spending bill, lawmakers instructed Agriculture
Secretary Tom Vilsack to only include
nutrition and dietary information, not
extraneous factors in the final guidelines.
After the report was issued, Vilsack said
the guidelines are supposed to be informed
by the latest and best science and medical
knowledge.
He wouldnt address the content of the
report specifically, but said he doesnt
want the final report to have anything
outside of the lines in the guidelines that
would potentially undercut the legitimacy,
credibility and acceptance of the guidelines. ... The law is fairly clear to me, its
about nutrition and its about diet.

Unwelcome mat: White House tries to counter Netanyahu visit


By Matthew Lee and Julie Pace
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON In what is becoming an


increasingly nasty grudge match, the
White House is mulling ways to undercut
Israeli
Prime
Minister
Benjamin
Netanyahus upcoming trip to Washington
and blunt his message that a potential
nuclear deal with Iran is bad for Israel and
the world.
There are limits. Administration officials
have discarded the idea of President Barack
Obama himself giving an Iran-related
address to rebut the two speeches
Netanyahu is to deliver during his early
March visit. But other options remain on
the table.
Among them: a presidential interview
with a prominent journalist known for coverage of the rift between Obama and
Netanyahu, multiple Sunday show television appearances by senior national security aides and a pointed snub of Americas

leading pro-Israel lobby,


which is holding its
annual meeting while
Netanyahu
is
in
Washington, according
to the officials.
The administration has
already ruled out meetings between Netanyahu
Obama, saying it
Barack Obama and
would be inappropriate
for the two to meet so close to Israels
March 17 elections. But the White House is
now doubling down on a cold-shoulder
strategy, including dispatching Cabinet
members out of the country and sending a
lower-ranking official than normal to represent the administration at the annual policy conference of the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee, the officials
said.
Vice President Joe Biden will be away,
his absence behind Netanyahu conspicuous
in coverage of the speech to Congress.

because they were not

Netanyahus plan for a
March 3 address to a
joint
meeting
of
Benjamin
Congress has further
Netanyahu
strained already tense
ties between the U. S. and Israel.
Congressional Republicans orchestrated
Netanyahus visit without consulting the
White House or State Department, a move
the Obama administration blasted as a
break in diplomatic protocol. Some
Democratic lawmakers say they will boycott the speech.
U.S. officials believe Netanyahus trip to
Washington is aimed primarily at derailing
a nuclear deal with Iran, Obamas signature
foreign policy objective. While Netanyahu

has long been skeptical of the negotiations, his opposition has increased over
what he sees as Obamas willingness to
make concessions that would leave Iran on
the brink of being able to build a nuclear
weapon. His opposition has intensified as
negotiations go into overdrive with an
end-of-March deadline for a framework
deal.
I think this is a bad agreement that is
dangerous for the state of Israel, and not
just for it, Netanyahu said Thursday.
The difference of opinion over the deal
has become unusually rancorous.
The White House and State Department
have both publicly accused Israeli officials
of leaking cherry-picked details of the
negotiations to try to discredit the administration. And, in extraordinary admissions
this week, the administration acknowledged that the U.S. is withholding sensitive details of the talks from Israel, its
main Middle East ally, to prevent such
leaks.

Iraqis worry they wont be ready for Mosul operation


By Lolita C. Baldor
and Sameer Yacoub
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON With the military operation to retake Iraqs second largest city from Islamic State
militants just a few months away,
questions persist about whether
the struggling Iraqi military will
be ready for the fight.
Iraqi officials continue to insist
they havent gotten the advanced
weapons they need for the operation in the northern city of Mosul,
and some question whether they
will be ready for a spring offensive. But the Pentagon insists the
U.S. has sent tens of thousands of
weapons and ammunition and
more is in the pipeline.
Hakim al-Zamili, the head of the
security and defense committee in
the Iraqi parliament, told the
Associated Press Friday that any
operation would be fruitless
unless the brigades are properly
prepared and have the weapons
they need.
I think if these weapons are not
made available soon, the military
assault might wait beyond
spring, he said. The Americans
might have their own calculations
and estimations, but we as Iraqis
have our own opinion. We are
fighting and moving on the
ground, so we have better vision
and April might be too soon.
A U.S. Central Command official provided some details of the
battle plan Thursday, saying the
coordinated military mission to
retake Mosul will likely begin in
April or May and will involve up
to 25,000 Iraqi troops. They have
cautioned, however, that if the
Iraqis arent ready, the timing
could be delayed.
The core of the fighting force
will be five of Iraqs most accomplished brigades, who will go
through additional U.S. training
before the operation.

Some signs of tension emerge among IS militants


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIRUT As the Islamic State


group tries to expand and take root
across the Middle East, it is struggling in Syria part of its heartland where it has stalled or even
lost ground while fighting multiple enemies on several fronts.
Signs of tension and power
struggles are emerging among the
ranks of its foreign fighters.
The extremists remain a formi-

dable force, and the groups hold


on about a third of Iraq and Syria
remains firm. But it appears to be
on the defensive in Syria for the
first time since it swept through
the territory last year and is suffering from months of U.S.-led coalition airstrikes and the myriad factions fighting it on the ground.
They are struggling with new
challenges that did not exist
before, said Lina Khatib, director
of the Carnegie Middle East Center

in Beirut. Kurdish forces dealt the


Islamic State its heaviest setback
by driving it from the border town
of Kobani in northern Syria last
month. Since then, those forces
have joined with moderate Syrian
rebels to take back about 215 villages in the same area, according
to Kurdish commanders and
activists, including the Britainbased monitoring group, the
Syrian Observatory for Human
Rights.

But al-Zamili said that while


several of Iraqs units have gone
through training recently, these

well-trained brigades cannot get


involved in battles without being
equipped with advanced and effec-

tive weapons that would enable


them to penetrate enemy lines.
His comment reflects a common

complaint from the Iraqi government, both in recent months and


throughout much of the Iraq war.
The U.S., however, has sent tens
of thousands of weapons, ammunition, body armor and other
equipment to the country.
According to a senior defense
official, the U. S. sent nearly
1,600 Hellfire missiles to Iraq last
year, and has already delivered 232
more. About 10,000 M-16 assault
rifles are due to arrive in the next
few weeks, along with 23, 000
ammunition magazines. The U.S.
also has delivered thousands of
rockets, mortar rounds, tank
rounds, . 50-caliber rounds and
10, 000 M-68 combat optical
sights, a rifle scope commonly
used by the U.S. military.
About 250 mine-resistant,
armor-protected vehicles will be
delivered in a few weeks, along
with sophisticated radio systems
for the MRAPs and more ammunition rounds, said the official, who
was not authorized to discuss the
matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The public discussion of the
operation, including how many
Iraqi brigades would be involved
and how Kurdish Peshmerga military would be used, triggered questions about whether it provided
any key information to the
enemy.
The Pentagon doesnt often disclose as much about an operation
before it takes place, but in some
cases it can be a strategic tactic
intended to affect the enemy, trigger a reaction or even prompt
some militants to flee before the
assault begins. Military officials
also said none of the information
released by
U. S.
Central
Command could be put to any
operational use by the Islamic
State militants.
The operation itself comes as no
surprise to the Islamic State
group.

IS bombers kill dozens


in Libyan suicide attacks

zone Finance Ministers meeting (Eurogroup) in Brussels, Belgium.

Greece and eurozone settle


their differences for now
By Lorne Cook and Pan Pylas
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BRUSSELS Following weeks of


recrimination and distrust, Greece and its
creditors in the 19-nation eurozone reached
an agreement Friday on extending the countrys rescue loans, a move that should dramatically ease concerns it was heading for
the euro exit as soon as next month.
The agreement, which looked a long way
off Thursday when one German official compared Athens request for more time to the
infamous Trojan Horse, will mean that
Greece will avoid going bankrupt, at least
over the four months of the extension. It
should also mean that capital controls wont
be needed and that Greek banks will have
enough money to stock up their ATMs.
To get the money though, the Greek government has one more hurdle to clear. On
Monday, it has to present a series of unspecified economic reforms measures that are
deemed acceptable by creditors and rooted in
Greeces previously enacted bailout agreement something the government had
promised not to do.
Still, the Greek government will be the
author of the reforms pursued and that represents a change from the past five years when
Greece has relied on rescue money to avoid
going bankrupt and was effectively ordered
to enact a series of austerity measures.
We have established common ground
again, said Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the eurozones top official, after the meeting in
Brussels.

Building in Dubais
Marina district in flames
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates A highrise tower in Dubais Marina district caught
fire early Saturday, but there were no immediate reports of casualties.
The fire broke out in the Torch tower on
the northeastern end of the densely populated district, which is packed with multi-story
skyscrapers. Debris from the fire cluttered
nearby streets after the blaze appeared to be
extinguished. High winds whipped through
the area. Police on the scene had no immediate reports of deaths or injuries.
Police blocked off areas around the more
than 70-story building, which still had
power. Lights were on in many of the apartments inside. Multiple fire trucks and police
vehicles were on the scene.
Residents of at least one neighboring
tower were told to evacuate as a precaution
because of strong winds, but they were later
allowed back inside.
The Marina area is home to dozens of towering apartment blocks and hotels, many of
them built over the past decade.

Varoufakis said the deal allows both Greece


and Europe to turn a page ... As of today, we
are beginning to be co-authors of our destiny.
Varoufakis conceded that the Greek government would be in trouble if the reform
measures, which are likely to include a
series of measures to tackle corruption and
tax evasion arent backed by representatives from the European Central Bank,
International Monetary Fund and European
Commission previously known as the
troika.
However, he insisted they wont be shot
down by the institutions.
If the list of reforms is sanctioned, then it
will be further detailed and agreed upon by
the end of April.
Fridays agreement was clinched just a
week before Greeces 240 billion-euro
($270 billion) bailout program expires and
is aimed at buying time for both sides to
agree on a longer-term deal to ease the burden of the bailout loans.
The Greek government isnt getting the
time it requested Thursday. Instead of the
six-month bailout extension it asked for,
its getting four with Greece having to
make big debt repayments after the new cutoff point, thats a sign that its creditors
arent willing to give Athens free rein.
Still, following weeks of tense negotiations in the wake of the election of the new
left-wing Greek government, the final deal
showed an element of compromise by both
camps and investors appeared to breathe a
sigh of relief with the Dow Jones index
closed at a record high Friday as news of the
Greek deal broke.

Around the world


Arrest of Caracas mayor sign of
broader Venezuela crackdown
CARACAS, Venezuela Opponents of
President Nicolas Maduro poured into the
streets Friday to condemn the surprise
arrest of Caracas mayor for allegedly participating in a U.S.-backed plot to overthrow his government.
The protests came a day after an armed
commando unit dressed in camouflage raided Mayor Antonio Ledezmas office and
hauled him away. The detention, recorded
by security cameras, set off a wave of spontaneous demonstrations in middle-class
neighborhoods loyal to the opposition and
was widely condemned by human rights
groups.
A few hundred supporters gathered peacefully Friday in eastern Caracas to denounce
Ledezmas kidnapping, which they
likened to the illegal snatching of activists
by South American military dictatorships
in the 1970s.

TRIPOLI, Libya Islamic State militants


unleashed suicide bombings Friday in eastern Libya, killing at least 40 people in what
the group said was retaliation for Egyptian
airstrikes against the extremists aggressive
new branch in North Africa.
The bombings in the town of Qubba,
which is controlled by Libyas internationally recognized government, solidified concerns the extremist group has spread beyond
the battlefields of Iraq and Syria and established a foothold less than 500 miles from
the southern tip of Italy.
The militants have taken over at least two
Libyan coastal cities on the Mediterranean
Sirte and Darna, which is about 30 kilometers (19 miles) from Qubba. They released
a video Sunday that showed the beheading of
21 Egyptian Christians who were abducted
in Sirte, and Egypt responded Monday with
airstrikes on Darna.
The Islamic State group has established
its presence in Libya by exploiting the
countrys breakdown since dictator
Moammar Gadhafi was ousted and killed in
2011. Hundreds of militias have taken
power since then, and some of them have
militant ideologies. A militia coalition
known as Libya Dawn has taken over
Tripoli, where Islamists set up their own
parliament and government. Islamic
extremist militias controlled the secondlargest city of Benghazi until late last year,
when army troops began battling them for
control.
The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for Fridays suicide bombings in
Qubba, but said there were only two attacks,
while the government said there were three.

Army spokesman Mohammed Hegazi said


one attacker rammed an explosives-packed
ambulance into a gas station where
motorists were lined up.
Imagine a car packed with a large amount
of explosives striking a gas station; the
explosion was huge and many of the injured
are in very bad shape while the victims bodies were torn into pieces, Hegazi said.
Two other bombers detonated vehicles
next to the house of the parliament speaker
and the nearby security headquarters, he
said.
Government spokesman Mohammed
Bazaza put the death toll at 40, with at least
70 injured, some seriously. The number of
dead was expected to rise. Two security officials, speaking on condition of anonymity
becase they were not authorized to talk to
the media said at least 45 were killed.
Among the dead were six Egyptians working at a cafe next to the gas station.
Video broadcast from the scene showed
dozens of cars wrecked and ablaze, with
pools of blood on the asphalt, along with
body parts, shoes and shattered glass.
Bodies covered in sheets were lined up nearby. The government and parliament
announced a week of mourning.
This terrorist, cowardly and desperate
attack only increases our determination to
uproot terrorism in Libya and in the
region, Bazaza said, adding that Libyan air
force jets conducted several airstrikes, without specifying where.
Witnesses in the city of Sirte said it was
hit by multiple Libyan airstrikes Friday, targeting a convention center that is used as a
headquarters by the Islamic State group.
U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen
Psaki said Washington condemned the
attacks in Qubba.

more time to repay its debts swung
the U.S. stock market higher Friday
and drove the stock market to a record
high.
While expected, the deal between
the struggling country and its
European creditors left investors
relieved. Any failure to reach an
accord could have sent tremors
through markets at a time when
Europe is trying to revive its regional
economy.
Its good this didnt go down to the
wire to get resolved, said Paul
Christopher, head of international
strategy at Wells Fargo.
Stocks started off the day solidly
lower. The Dow Jones industrial average fell as much as 107 points. But as
rumors and news came out that Greece
and its creditors were close to a deal,
the market climbed ever-so-steadily
higher. The euro also gained against
the dollar.
The Dow finished up 154. 67
points, or 0.9 percent, to 18,140.44.
The Standard & Poors 500 index
climbed 12.85 points, or 0.6 percent,
to 2,110.30 and the Nasdaq composite rose 31.27 points, or 0.6 percent,
to 4,955.97. The Dow closed at a

record high, surpassing its record


close on Dec. 26. The S&P 500 also
closed at record high.
The Nasdaq, which has yet to
reclaim its record high from the dotcom era, in now within 93 points of
that March 2000 peak.
In Brussels, the deal reached
between the European Union and
Greeces recently elected government
would extend the countrys repayment
plan by four months. That is shorter
than the six months originally
requested by Greece.
In return, Greece has committed to
not pursue any unilateral measures
that might affect the countrys budget
targets. Greece has committed to provide a list of reforms based on its current bailout program for assessment
by Monday.
The deal is a shift from only a day
ago, where it seemed like Greece and
its creditors were still struggling to
reach a basic agreement for the
Mediterranean country. Without the
agreement, Greece would have only
about a week left before it would
default on its obligations and cause it
to drop the euro currency.
Greeces economy is small, but the
potential disruption Greece could
have to the global financial system
potentially could be huge. In a worstcase scenario, Greece abandoning the

euro could embolden political parties


in other debt-ridden countries to seek
to leave the euro as well.
A Greek exit is not good for anyone, including the Greeks, said
Christopher of Wells Fargo. If
Greece leaves, everyone else could
leave and youre left with nothing.
In energy markets, the price of oil
fell Friday after a closely-watched
count of drilling rigs declined less
than expected. That could mean crude
supplies will remain ample.
Benchmark U.S. crude fell 82 cents
to close at $50.34 a barrel in New
York on the last day of trading for the
March contract. Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils used by
many U.S. refineries, rose one cent to
close at $60.22 in London.
In other futures trading, wholesale
gasoline rose 2.5 cents to close at
$1.641 a gallon. Heating oil rose
11.8 cents to close at $2.112 a gallon. Natural gas rose 11.7 cents to
close at $2.951 per 1,000 cubic feet.
The U.S. dollar rose to 119.09 yen
from 119.04 yen the previous session, while the euro rose against the
dollar to $1. 1379 compared with
$1.1368 Thursday.
Gold fell $2.70 to $1,204.90 an
ounce, silver fell 11 cents to $16.30
an ounce and high-grade copper fell 3
cents to $2.59 a pound.

Wal-Mart raises could help lift pay in lower-wage industries


By Christopher S. Rugaber
and Candice Choi
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The modest raises that


Wal-Mart has said it will give its lowestpaid workers provide a glimmer of hope for
lower-wage workers in other companies and
industries.
Other retailers and some fast food restaurants may now feel compelled to follow suit
to retain their workers and attract others to
fill openings, economists said.
Wal-Marts move follows a sustained
campaign for higher wages by some of the
companys employees and a nationwide
debate over whether to raise the federal minimum wage. Given Wal-Marts position as
the nations largest private employer, its
decision to yield, even in a limited way,

could embolden more employees to seek


raises.
They really set the standard across the
retail sector, said Claire McKenna, a policy analyst at the National Employment Law
Project, a group that advocates for lowwage workers. What they do really matters.
Josh Bivens, research and policy director
at the liberal Economic Policy Institute,
said Wal-Marts move also reduces the pressure on other retailers to keep labor costs at
rock-bottom levels.
It at least takes away the excuse from
other firms that Wed like to raise wages,
but we cant because we have to compete
with Wal-Mart, Bivens said. It could possibly give some competitive breathing
space to other retailers to raise wages.
On Thursday, Wal-Mart said it would

increase its minimum pay to $9 an hour in


April and $10 an hour by February 2016.
The move will mean raises for 500,000 of
its 1.3 million employees. The average
full-time wage will tick up to $13 an hour
from $12.85. For part-timers, the hourly
wage will go to $10 from $9.48.
Wal-Marts decision follows similar steps
by other firms. The Gap has raised its minimum wage to $10 an hour. Swedish home
furnishings retailer Ikea raised pay for thousands of its U.S. workers this year by an
average of 17 percent to $10.76 an hour.
Health insurer Aetna has said it will pay a
minimum of $16 an hour. Thats more than
double the federal minimum wage of $7.25.
All of which means that many people who
earn less than $10 an hour will now have
more options.
If you work at a fast-food restaurant for

$7.25 an hour, you are going to want to


leave that job and work at the Wal-Mart
nearby, said Sylvia Allegretto, an economist at the University of California,
Berkeley.
Allegretto noted anecdotal evidence, for
example, that recent increases in
Washington states minimum wage now
$9.47 an hour led residents of nearby
Idaho to seek work in the state.
Workers at McDonalds and other fastfood companies have agitated for higher
pay, coalescing around demands for $15 an
hour.
But unlike Wal-Mart, which owns all its
stores, the fast-food industry is largely
franchised. Companies like McDonalds,
Wendys and Burger King say they dont
make employment and pay decisions on
behalf of their franchisees.

Nasdaq gains for eighth straight day, nearing dot-com high


By Steve Rothwell
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK The Nasdaq composite rose for an eighth straight day
Friday, pushing the index closer to its
all-time closing high.
The index climbed with the overall
stock market after Greece and its creditors in the eurozone reached an agreement on the countrys request to extend
its bailout. The news was seen as positive by investors because it reduces the
risk of Greece leaving the euro, a move
that has the potential to send shockwaves throughout global financial
markets.

After gaining nearly 7 percent in


February, the Nasdaq is now less than 2
percent from its record close of
5,048.62, a benchmark set during the
frenzy of the dot-com era in March
2000.
On Friday, the Nasdaq added 31.27
points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,955.97.
Its eight-day win streak matches its
longest stretch of gains since February
2014.
The technology-heavy index, which
tracks the 2,500-plus stocks that are
listed on the Nasdaq stock market, has
advanced 4.6 percent this year, and is
up 16 percent in the last year.
Almost half the companies in the

index are technology stocks, and the


Nasdaq is outperforming both the Dow
Jones industrial average and the
Standard & Poors 500 index this year,
as the technology sector is coming
back in favor. The S&P 500 is up 2.5
percent since the start of 2015, and has
risen 15 percent over the last year.
One stock in particular is giving the
Nasdaq a lift: Apple.
The technology giant has gained 17
percent this year, pushing its market
value over $750 billion. The surge
means that the stock now accounts for
about 10 percent of the Nasdaqs market value. That compares with its 4
percent share for the S&P 500.

Two sides in West Coast ports dispute reach tentative contract


By Justin Pritchard
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES Negotiators


reached a tentative contract covering
West Coast dockworkers on Friday
evening, likely ending a protracted
labor dispute that snarled international
trade at seaports handling about $1
trillion worth of cargo annually.
The breakthrough came after nine
months of talks that turned contentious in the fall, when dockworkers
and their employers began blaming

each other for problems getting


imports to consumers and exports
overseas.
The five-year deal still must be
approved by the 13, 000-member
International
Longshore
and
Warehouse Unions rank-and-file.
They work 29 ports from San Diego to
Seattle that handle about one-quarter of
all U.S. international trade, much of it
with Asia.
U. S. Secretary of Labor Thomas
Perez, who this week began overseeing talks, said that both the dockworkers union and their employers agreed

to resume work Saturday evening. As


the two sides quarreled, employers cut
most weekend work, saying they
would not pay extra wages.
With ships and their cargo weeks
behind schedule, I suspect that people
will be getting a lot of overtime in the
days ahead, Perez said.
Dozens of ships laden with a youname-it range of imported goods are
using waters off the ports as parking
lots. It will take weeks and probably months to unblock that traffic
jam, as well as the gridlock of containers already on the docks.

Sequoia guard Tommy Lopiparo does not


often put up big numbers or ll the stat
sheet for the Cherokees basketball team.
What the standout football player does is
bring a football mentality to the game of
basketball.
It was Lopiparos balls-to-the-wall
approach that encouraged the rest of his
team to put together one of its best efforts
of the season in beating Half Moon Bay 4840 in the Peninsula Athletic League tournament seminals.
The Cherokees advance to the PAL tournament championship game where they will
meet Mills at 7:30 p.m. Saturday night in
Millbrae. The Vikings advanced to their second straight tournament nal with a 58-55
win over Burlingame.
Lopiparo nished with six points, four
rebounds and about a dozen oor burns as
he, time and again, ung his body to the
oor to come up with a loose ball or make a
steal.
Thats how I play every game, Lopiparo
said. I thought we came out with good
intensity. We were quick on defense.
Sequoia coach Fine Lauese said Lopiparo
has set the tone for his team all season
long.
Tommy is the inspiration of our team,
coach Lauese said. Its contagious. He
brings it every day. For him to hit those two
3s was a bonus.
Obviously, a team needs more than heart
and hustle to win ballgames, and the
Cherokees have that as well. Freshman center Ziggy Lauese, who scored just two
points in limited minutes in Sequoias quarternal win over Jefferson Wednesday, came
back with a game-high 15 points against
Half Moon Bay. Chris Bene nished with
eight, while NJai LeBlanc added seven.
LeBlanc, only a sophomore, had a terrible
night shooting through the rst three quarters. But a layup at the third-quarter buzzer
seemed to boost his condence.
And he needed every bit of it as the

Sequoia center Ziggy Lauese uses a finger roll to score two of his game-high 15 points as the
Cherokees knocked off Half Moon Bay 48-40 in the PAL tournament semifinals Friday night.

As Mills shooting guard Brandon Matsuno


was warming up before his teams Peninsula
Athletic League boys basketball tournament
semifinal game against Burlingame Friday
afternoon, he was leaving his 3-point
attempts short.
His father, who was sitting near the baseline, had a simple suggestion for his son:
hop forward on his release.
Matsuno took his dads words to heart.
Matsuno drained seven 3-pointers on his way
to a game-high 23 points in the Vikings 5855 win over Burlingame in Millbrae Friday
afternoon to move into Saturdays championship game for the second year in a row.
We hit a lot of shots and played pretty
good defense, Matsuno said.
Matsunos performance offset another
strong outing from Burlingames Justin
Gutang, who went for 20 points against
Mills, after dropping 26 on Terra Nova the
previous game.
It took a while for Matsuno to find his
rhythm. He had only three points in the first
half, knocking down his first shot in the
opening minutes of the game.
He really hit his stride in the third quarter,
however, connecting on four from downtown.
He hit back-to-back 3s from the left corner
within 17 seconds of each other late in the
third quarter, the second of which tied the
game at 41 heading into the fourth quarter.
My teammates kept getting me the ball,
Matsuno said.

also totaled five steals in the game.

Menlo-Atherton girls basketball assistant coach Hayley Grossman returned to her


alma mater Mills High School this week,
where the Lady Bears triumphed over Half
Moon Bay 54-45 in Fridays Peninsula
Athletic League tournament semifinals.
Its always an emotional return for
Grossman, not because of the actual venue,
but because of the coach who inspired her to
want to become one herself. A graduate of
Mills in 2004, Grossman played for the
great girls basketball teams of legendary
head coach Kelly Shea Gallo, who died of
cancer in 2004 just months after Grossmans
senior season.
Kelly was very big on family and
being together, Grossman said. Thats
why Im a coach. Because what she taught
me, I need to give it to some other high
school team. This is very important. Its
kind of how she lives on.
Grossman is in her sixth year as a high
school coach. She was previously at
Woodside, including two years as the varsity
head coach. Then in 2013-14, she took an
assistant coaching position at M-A along
with Markisha Coleman under then-head
coach Morgan Clyburn.
Grossman and Coleman have very specific
roles. Coleman, a former point guard, was
brought on to coach the backcourt.

Warriors bury Spurs


By Antonio Gonzalez
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND Stephen Curry had 25


points and 11 assists, Klay Thompson
scored 20 and the Golden State Warriors
returned from the All-Star break to beat the
San Antonio Spurs 110-99 on Friday night.
Curry controlled the game the way he so
often has this season, burnishing his MVP
credentials by leading Golden State to big
runs at the end of the second and third quarters.
The Warriors went ahead by 21 points
entering the fourth, and Spurs coach Gregg
Popovich rested his regulars the final 12
minutes.
Aron Baynes had 12 points and 10
rebounds, and Kawhi Leonard scored 12
points for San Antonio, which lost 119-115
at the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday
night in its first game back.
The Spurs are in the middle of a seasonlong nine-game trip sandwiched around the
break, going 2-3 so far. It was the lone home
game for the Warriors during an 11-game
stretch wrapped around All-Star weekend.
Despite the travel and time away, neither
team looked rusty.
The league-leading Warriors (43-9) and
defending NBA champions Spurs (34-21) put
on a back-and-forth show that featured a fast
pace and beautiful ball movement. But the
game wasnt always clean San Antonio
had 16 turnovers, and Golden State had 12.
And it wasnt always calm, either.
Things intensified late in the second quarter when Curry was called for reaching in,
waving his arms and screaming madly after
the whistle. Curry and Warriors coach Steve
Kerr received consecutive technical fouls for
arguing with an official, whipping what had
been a stagnant sellout crowd of 19,596 into
a frenzy.
The Warriors ended the half on a 21-11 run

Warriors 110, Spurs 99


over the final five minutes. Curry connected
from 3-point range and converted a behindthe-back, left-handed layup during the spurt,
sticking his tongue out
while running to the
other end.
Golden State led 62-55
at intermission and
scored the first seven
points of the third quarter. Curry closed the quarter with another flurry,
Steph Curry hitting a step-back 3 and
finding Andre Iguodala
in the corner to put the Warriors up 89-68
heading to the fourth.
Popovich never played his Big Three
Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili
in the fourth, and the final margin made
the outcome seem closer than it really was.
Instead, it was a rare night that Golden State
could celebrate a victory over the NBAs
model of consistency.
For the last two decades, San Antonio has
dominated the Warriors like no other team.
The Spurs swept the series last season and
had won 53 of the last 61 games against
Golden State.
The Warriors came into the game with the

LAS VEGAS The Fight is finally on.


Floyd Mayweather Jr. will meet Manny
Pacquiao on May 2 in a
welterweight showdown
that will be boxings richest
fight
ever.
Mayweather
himself
announced the bout
Friday after months of
negotiations, posting a
picture of the signed contract online.
Floyd
I promised the fans we
would get this done and Mayweather Jr.
we did, Mayweather said.
The long anticipated bout at the MGM
Grand in Las Vegas will almost surely break
every financial record, and make both boxers
richer than ever. Mayweather could earn $120
million or more, while Pacquiaos split of the
purse will likely be around $80 million.
The fight, which matches boxings two
biggest attractions of recent years, has been
in the making for five years. It finally came
together in recent months with both fighters
putting aside past differences over various
issues including drug testing and television rights to reach agreement.
Pacquiao was sleeping in the Philippines
when the fight was announced, but his camp
issued a statement saying the fans deserve the
long awaited fight.
It is an honor to be part of this historic
event, Pacquiao said. I dedicate this fight to
all the fans who willed this fight to happen
and, as always, to bring glory to the
Philippines and my fellow Filipinos around
the world.
While the fight rivals the 2002 heavy-

weight title bout between Lennox Lewis and


Mike Tyson for interest, it comes more than
five years after the first real effort to put the
fighters together in their prime. Most boxing observers believe both have lost some of
their skills, though
Mayweather remains a
master defensive fighter
and Pacquiao showed in
his last fight against
Chris Algieri that he still
has tremendous quickness
in his hands.
Still, Pacquiao is 36 and
has been through many
Manny
wars in the ring. And
while Mayweather has
Pacquiao
been largely untouched in
his career, he turns 38 on Tuesday.
I am the best ever, TBE, and this fight will
be another opportunity to showcase my
skills and do what I do best, which is win,
Mayweather said in his announcement.
Manny is going to try to do what 47 before
him failed to do, but he wont be successful.
He will be No. 48.
Oddsmakers believe Mayweather will do
just that, making him a 2 1/2-1 favorite in the
scheduled 12-round bout. The fight is expected to do record business in Nevadas legal
sports books, with tens of millions wagered
on the outcome.
It will also do record business at the box
office with the MGM expected to be scaled
far higher than the $20 million live gate for
Mayweathers 2013 fight with Canelo
Alvarez. The pay-per-view revenue also is
expected to be a record, though television

Bochy doing great


after heart procedure
By Jose Romero
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. San Francisco Giants manager


Bruce Bochy is doing great and is expected to be
released from the hospital Friday, a day after a heart procedure to insert two stents.
Brett Bochy, a pitcher with the team at spring training,
said he visited his 59-year-old father at Scottsdale
Healthcare Medical Center on Thursday and Friday morning before going to the clubhouse. The hospital is across
the street from where the Giants work out.
Hes doing great, Brett Bochy said. Its a little scary
to go to the hospital, but hes in good hands here. They
noticed something after his physical early so it was
caught early, and hes feeling great now.
The Giants said Thursday the teams medical staff had
been monitoring the managers heart after he experienced
discomfort following a physical exam Wednesday, when
the World Series champions reported to spring training.
He couldnt be in better spirits, Brett Bochy said.
Hes ready to get back out. He wants to be back out (on
the field) today, but theyre keeping him out just for precautionary reasons.
Bruce Bochy addressed the media on the first workout
day for pitchers and catchers Thursday and joked with
reporters, never revealing anything about his physical.
Bochy, who turns 60 in April, has led the Giants to
three World Series titles in the past five seasons 2010,
2012 and last year. He came to the Giants from the San
Diego Padres before the 2007 season and has spent 20
years as a manager.
Brett Bochy said his father doesnt have a history of
heart problems, but the managers father died of a heart
attack and Bruce Bochy has always been monitored
because of that.
Its scary anytime you hear anything involving someones heart, Giants catcher Buster Posey said. Happy to
hear that hes doing well.

MLB trying to speed up game


By Ronald Blum
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Major League Baseball is slowly addressing


the lagging pace of games.
MLB and the players association announced an agreement
Friday to enforce the rule requiring a hitter to keep at least one
foot in the batters box in many cases. MLB also will post stadium clocks timing pitching changes and between-inning
breaks starting in spring training, and it no longer will require
managers to always come onto the field when they request video
reviews by umpires.
But the sides limited penalties to fines and not automatic
balls and strikes, and even the fines dont start until May 1.
Many of the more radical ideas experimented with during the
Arizona Fall League were not adopted, such as a 20-second clock
between pitches, a limitation of pitchers mound conferences
involving catchers and managers, and no-pitch intentional
walks.
Still, even the modest changes are too much for players, used
to their routines and reluctant to alter them.
If you rush a hamburger, its not going to be completely
done. There are going to be too many mistakes. Youre going to
rush the game. It would just be terrible. I dont think there needs
to be a time limit, Miami Marlins pitcher Mat Latos said.
Said Chicago White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton: Im not a
big fan. Theres a lot of thinking involved. When a pitcher
steps on the rubber, theres a lot going on. Theres thinking in
the dugout, the coaches, everyone. Why speed that up?
Baseball has been contemplating the issue for nearly a
decade. In February 2005, the batters box rule was announced
as an experiment in the minor leagues.
Still, the average time of nine-inning games as increased to a
record 3 hours, 2 minutes last year, up from 2:33 in 1981.
Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander says the change will be
tougher on batters than pitchers.
I hope it screws up their whole rhythm and everything, he
said, jokingly.
MLB cannot make unilateral changes to playing rules without the consent of the players union unless it gives one year
prior notice, so an agreement was necessary for any 2015 alterations. The World Umpires Association also approved.
The players believe that enforcing the rules that currently
exist regarding between-inning breaks and plate appearances is
the best way to address the issue of pace of play, union head
Tony Clark said in a statement. Were confident that todays
announcements will have a positive impact on the pace of the
game without jeopardizing the integrity of the competition.
The pitch clock will be used in the minor leagues at Double-A
and Triple-A, where union approval isnt needed.
MLB said it is likely to announce only fines involving repeat
flagrant violators. In the AFL, strikes and balls were called as
penalties, and the average game time was reduced by 10 minutes.
The rule requiring hitters keep a foot in the box contains

Many of the more radical ideas


experimented with during the
Arizona Fall League were not adopted,
such as a 20-second clock between pitches,
a limitation of pitchers mound conferences
involving catchers and managers,
and no-pitch intentional walks.
many exceptions, including swinging at a pitch, getting forced
out by a pitch, calling time, faking a bunt and wild pitches and
passed balls.
I think its something thats going to take some time, San
Diego Padres catcher Derek Norris said. Youve got guys playing for seven, eight years that have always stepped out of the
box and taken a practice swing.
Clocks will be installed on or near outfield scoreboards and
on facades behind home plate, near most press boxes. Inning
breaks will be counted down from 2:25 for locally televised
games and 2:45 for nationally televised games. Pitchers must
throw their last warmup pitches before 30 seconds remaining,
with exceptions if the pitcher or catcher is on base when the
previous half-inning ends.
These changes represent a step forward in our efforts to
streamline the pace of play, said Rob Manfred, who took over
from Bud Selig as commissioner last month. The most fundamental starting point for improving the pace of the average
game involves getting into and out of breaks seamlessly.
MLB will make a donation to the unions charitable foundation based on compliance with the new rules.
The sides also announced changes for the second season of
expanded video review by umpires.
Managers no longer will have to leave their dugouts to call
for replays, unless the play in question ends an inning and the
defensive team must be kept on the field.
I didnt like to run out there and as soon as I turn around, people are yelling from the dugout to go back, Cincinnati Reds
manager Bryan Price said. Its a waste of time. Its embarrassing. Nobody really wants to do it. If we can just hold the game
and tell the umpires we want to just take a look at it. We only
have 30 seconds to look at it, who cares if youre on the field or
not?
In addition, plays involving whether a runner left a base early
or touched a base on a tag-up play will be subject to video
review for the first time.
Managers also will retain the challenge for every overturned
call, not just the first, and managers will have two challenges
during tiebreaker and postseason games and the All-Star Game.
A manager will be required to use a challenge to review violations of the home-plate collision rule, but the crew chief may
call for a review from the seventh inning on if a manager is out
of challenges.

Weekend Feb. 21-22, 2015

RAMS
Continued from page 11
has now won 14 straight games against PAL
teams this season after finishing with an
undefeated record in North Division play for
the third straight year.
In the beginning of the year we worked
really hard on just getting in shape, Goo
said. Most of the practices were just about
running and in the weight room because
we wanted to be really conditioned. Were a
fast team. We wanted to be able to push the
ball. So, when were in good condition it
makes the game a lot easier.
At halftime, it seemed like things werent
going Westmoors way. Hillsdale outscored
the Rams 10-2 in the second quarter to take
a 19-15 lead into the half.
Knights center Adesia Cotton was a force
in the first half. The senior exploited
Westmoors man-to-man defense by scoring
nine points and grabbing six rebounds
before the break.
In the second half, however, Westmoor
switched to the zone defense and it created
fits for Hillsdale. Cotton went on to grab a
team-high 10 rebounds in the game. But the
Knights went ice cold from the floor in the
second half, shooting just 2 of 21 with a
pair of 3-pointers.
And they both went in by luck,
Hillsdale head coach Mike Ciardella said.
Granted, Hillsdale was without its best
player in guard Raichel Tjan. The sophomore didnt suit up for the game and was on
crutches after spraining her ankle in
Wednesdays tourney opener against Terra
Nova.

SPORTS
Most of our points really came from her,
along with our steals and assists, Cotton
said. We ran a lot of the same offenses.
Just, without her, it was a lot different than
we thought it would be.
The Knights started the game cold and didnt get on the scoreboard until nearly five
minutes into the first quarter. But Hillsdales
strong defensive showing and a glut of
Westmoor turnovers helped turn the tide.
The Rams committed 21 turnovers in the
game but 14 of them came in the first half.
When Hillsdale guard Emily Nepomeceno
drilled a 3-pointer with just under two minutes to go in the half, the Knights took their
first lead of the game at 17-15. And in holding that lead until midway through the third
quarter, it looked like an upset might be in
the cards for the Knights.
I felt like this game started slow,
Westmoor guard Marlene Alcantara said.
Our coach talked to us near the end of the
third quarter. He was really mad at us. We had
to pick it up and [Goo] really helped us pick
up the pace of the game.
Goos physicality and versatility was evident amid a 15-0 Westmoor run. Alcantara
sparked the run with a 3-pointer at the start
of the fourth quarter. The next time down the
floor, Goo bulled through two defenders to
get to the hoop for an impressive lay-in. On
Westmoors next possession, Goo showed
her range by hammering home a 3-pointer.
With the win, Westmoor advances to the
PAL tourney championship game to face
Menlo-Atherton Saturday at 6 p.m.
I dont know anything about them,
Keough said. I heard theyre big. We did a
better job boxing out today than we have in
the past, but thats been our struggle
throughout the year is rebounds.

BEARS
Continued from page 11
Grossman, a former center, was brought
on to coach the post players. And with
Coleman taking over as head coach this
year, those roles have not changed.
This seasons cast of post players was
deep from Day One. So, when sophomore
center Ofa Sili suffered a knee injury earlier
this season, the Bears hardly missed a beat
when freshman Greer Hoyem took over the
starting job.
I expected Ofa to have a great year,
Grossman said. Injury is a players worst
fear and a coachs worst fear but Im
extremely proud of Greer Hoyem because
she did step up big.
The tricky part was finding room for both
players after Sili returned to action in late
January.
Friday, the Bears proved to have solved
the conundrum. Sili and Hoyem shared plenty of minutes and made the most of them.
While freshman guard Carly McLanahan
drilled four 3-pointers to score a team-high
12 points and forward Naomi Baer scored
11, the M-A post was strong as well.
Sili scored 11 points and Hoyem totaled
eight, but it was the way they scored that
opened eyes amid one of the best quarters of
basketball the Bears have played all year.
M-A outscored Half Moon Bay 28-14 in the
first half after catching fire in the second
quarter.
McLanahan had two big steals to start the
quarter. Then the passing connection from
Sili to Hoyem produced back-to-back buckets, as Sili chalked up a pair of assists on
Hoyem layups to stake M-A to a 22-10 lead.
The connection is precisely what
Grossman envisioned upon Silis return.
Although both players are natural centers,
Grossman lobbied to utilize one as a power
forward to get them shared minutes.
Grossman said it was a tough sell, but
Coleman eventually warmed up to the idea.
We were a little nervous when Sili came
back because we didnt know if shed see a
lot of minutes, Grossman said. So I was
like lets see, what they can do together?
Theyre both centers at heart. So this is
still new to them, putting them together.
And they need a lot of work defensively.
Offensively, theyre on top of it.
Both Sili and Hoyem are underclassmen,
so they project to have two more years
together to continue developing their chemistry. Starting point guard Ilana Baer is also
a sophomore. The Bears also project to get
another year out of junior guard Annalisa
Crowe, who started the year as M-As power
forward but has showed the ball-handling
proficiency to transition to the backcourt

THE DAILY JOURNAL


and make room for the Sili-Hoyem combination.
Were all learning a lot of different positions, Sili said. Its going to take time
until we really nail it down, but were getting there.
After Silis back-to-back assists, the
passing game proved contagious. The next
time down the floor, Hoyem kicked the ball
out to earn an assist on a McLanahan trey to
give M-A a 25-10 lead.
In the second half, Half Moon Bay managed to make it interesting. Cougars sophomore guard Addison Walling scored a gamehigh 21 points, 16 of which came in the
second half. After trailing 40-23 midway
through the third quarter, Half Moon Bay
closed to within five points with three minutes remaining in the game.
Every time the Cougars got hot, however,
the Bears answered.
Early in the fourth quarter, Walling came
up with a bucket off a steal that looked to be
a big momentum swing, closing M-As lead
to 43-34. But the Bears answered right back
with McClanahan hitting her fourth 3pointer of the game.
Then just a minute after Half Moon Bay
got as close as it would get at 46-41, Sili
drew a foul the next time down the floor and
hit both free throws. Hoyem followed with a
big offensive rebound and a put-back to all
but put the game out of reach at 49-41 with
two minutes to play.
Theyve got too many girls who are
solid, Half Moon Bay head coach Antonio
Veloso said. If youve got four or five
(good players), its tough. And thats what
we ran into.
With the win, M-A advances to Saturdays
tournament championship game to take on
PAL North champ Westmoor. Its a rematch
of last years final that Westmoor won 4839.
What hurt us was [Westmoors] outside
shots and we couldnt really get out on
them, Sili said. But, weve got two new
freshmen this year and theyre a big help on
our team. This year were doing way better
than we did last year. Were working better
as a team.
It is fitting M-A is playing its best basketball at Mills, where Shea Gallos retired
jersey hangs on the wall near the main
entrance of the gymnasium. And to hear
Grossman talk about her current team, its
an echo of the philosophies of her beloved
coaching heroine.
Theyre all close, Grossman said of the
2014-15 Bears. Theyre all drama-free,
they all get along, theyre all happy and
were winning.

Fox, NBC ready to wave the


green flag on NASCAR coverage
By Dan Gelston
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. The


loudest cheers for the Daytona 500
this weekend may not come from
the speedway grandstands.
NBC executives swear theyre
pulling for Fox during Sundays
race for an unlikely reason.
We would love to see Fox break
our record, said Jon Miller, president of programming for NBC
Sports and NBCSN. A healthy
Daytona signals a healthy
NASCAR, which is good for
everyone.
ESPN and TNT are out. Fox is in
and so is NBC, which is back in
the NASCAR business nine years
after the final Daytona 500 to air
on the network drew a record 11.3
rating with an average of 19.4 million viewers.
NASCARs 10-year deal with
NBC Sports Group begins this
season and gives the network the
final 19 Sprint Cup Series races of
the season and final 19 Xfinity

FIGHT
Continued from page 12
The fight will be televised as a
joint venture between competing
networks Showtime and HBO,
which will share announcers with
Jim Lampley and Al Bernstein
reportedly handling the task at
ringside.
Pacquiao began pushing hard for
the fight after beating Algieri in
November in Macau, and negotiations picked up last month when
the two fighters met by chance at a
Miami Heat basketball game and
later talked with each other in
Pacquiaos hotel room about making it happen.
Its one of those fortuitous circumstance we couldnt have
planned, Showtime boxing chief
Stephen Espinoza said. But we
were lucky that it happened.
As part of the agreement,

races. NBC last broadcast races in


2006 before ESPN took over its
portion of the schedule.
Fox Sports has a deal to air the
first five months of Cup races
beginning this season, and it also
runs through 2024.
NBC Sports paid $4.4 billion
for its rights and the Fox Sports
deal is now worth $3.8 billion.
This all puts NASCAR at $820
million a year for the length of the
10-year contracts.
The staggering sum has both
networks expecting a ratings bang
for their bucks, even as flat viewership and sagging attendance
have socked the sport. Last years
Daytona 500 averaged 9.3 million
viewers in a race delayed more than
six hours by rain. The 2013 edition won by Jimmie Johnson
averaged 16.7 million viewers,
but down from nearly 18 million
who watched in 2007 and 2008.
NASCAR Chairman
Brian
France said his series is still one
or two for American sports viewers every weekend from February

to September.
When you judge it all, were
pretty comfortable that this is not
only the most dominant motorsport in North America by a wide
margin, but were competing nicely
with the most competitive sports
landscape in the world, he said.
NBC still has time to tinker
before its July debut.
We think we can bring a lot to
the party and really help them
regain their momentum and continue to grow the sport, Miller
said.
Up first, Fox is ready to wave
the green flag on the NASCAR season with Sundays race. The race
marks Foxs 15th Daytona 500
following its debut in the 2001
edition marred by the death of Dale
Earnhardt. Mike Joy, the play-byplay announcer, and analysts
Darrell
Waltrip
and Larry
McReynolds have called every
start, wreck and checkered flag
over that span punctuated, of
course, by Waltrips Boogity,
boogity, boogity!

Mayweather insisted on having the


right to announce the bout. He also
won concessions from the Pacquiao
camp on who enters the ring first,
what type of gloves are used, and a
number of other issues, including a
reported 60-40 split of the purse.
But it didnt take long for
Pacquiaos camp to start talking,
either. Promoter Bob Arum
expressed his elation in making the
fight, while trainer Freddie Roach
predicted a big win for his fighter.
Floyd should enjoy being the ASide while he can because on May 2
Manny is going to put him on his
backside, Roach said.
Arum, who has promoted some of
the biggest fights in history, said
this one would be bigger than them
all.
This boxing match will have the
interest in the U.S. of a Super
Bowl, Arum told The Associated
Press. I think it will set all kinds
of pay-per-view records and gate
records. It will be the biggest boxing event of all time.

Both fighters will bring 147pound titles into the ring, but the
fight is about far more than belts.
Mayweather, who is unbeaten in 47
fights, wants to stake his claim as
one of the greatest fighters ever,
and remove any doubts about his
legacy by fighting the boxer who is
thought to be the greatest challenge
of his career.
Pacquiao, meanwhile, will try to
show that a knockout loss to Juan
Manuel Marquez in 2012 and a disputed decision loss to Timothy
Bradley should not define a remarkable career that began 20 years ago
in the Philippines
Dont tune in looking for a big
knockout, either. The last time
Pacquiao stopped anyone was in
2009 when he finished off Miguel
Cotto in the 12th round, while
Mayweather has only stopped one
fighter (Victor Ortiz) in the last
eight years.

of the game gave Mills a 56-51 lead with 49 seconds to play and his layup off a baseball
inbound pass from Marquis Adkins with 33 seconds left proved to be the difference.
Mills made things interesting, however, by
twice missing the front end of 1-and-1 to give
Burlingame a chance. After the first miss,
Burlingames Bassel Mufarreh scored on a putback with eight seconds to play, cutting the
Mills lead to 58-55.
The Panthers had one last chance to tie after
another missed Mills free throw, but came up
empty on a pair of shots.
You play games like these, they come down
to a little detail here, a little detail there, said
Burlingame interim coach Bob Ennis, who was
filling in for a sick Pete Harames.
I thought our guys played hard. The kids
stuck with the game plan.
The Panthers got off to a much better start
against Mills than they did against Terra Nova
in Wednesdays quarterfinal game. Gutangs
bucket on a putback with 3:11 to play in the
first quarter put the Panthers up 7-6, but Mills
finished the quarter on a 7-0 run. Marquis Adkins
knocked down a layup off the dribble and then
canned a 3 before Herag Aristakessian ended the
quarter scoring on a jumper from the free throw
line for a 13-7 lead after one quarter.
Mills maintained that momentum to start the
second quarter, with Danny Yu and Cole Brouqua
hitting back-to-back 3s to take a 19-7 lead with
6:48 to play in the first half.
Mills, however, would score only one more
basket the rest of the half a Miguel Madrigal
3 as Burlingame finished the quarter on a 110 run. A Tyler Garlitos putback and ensuing free
throw with 37 seconds to play pulled the
Panthers to 22-18 at halftime.

Cherokees tried to hold off Half Moon Bay


down the stretch. With Sequoia clinging to
a 40-36 lead, LeBlanc had the ball in his
hands and the shot clock winding down. He
launched a 3-pointer that was too strong,
but he banked it home to put Sequoia up 4336 with 1:15 left to play.
The bank 3? I thought, Well, this ones
over, said Half Moon Bay coach Rich
Forslund.
Coach Lauese simply rubbed his face
when reminded of LeBlancs bomb, who
said Thursday that LeBlanc has never met a
shot attempt he didnt like.
I never tell them to stop shooting,
coach Lauese said.
Half Moon Bay, on the other, continues
to struggle. The Cougars dropped their regular-season nale to rival Terra Nova last
Friday and then struggled to beat MenloAtherton in the quarternals Wednesday.
Friday night was more of the same as
Forslund so-called Big Three did not come
up big when needed. Case DuFrane had a
solid effort, nishing with 12 points and 11
rebounds. But Austin Hilton managed only
eight and Tommy Nuo had just six.
Forslund lamented all the missed opportunities.
When youre playing tight games, you
just cant miss those opportunities,
Forslund said, who saw his team knocked
out in the seminals for the second straight
season.

Open letter
to Oklahoma
lawmakers
By Emily Shen

Dear Rep. Dan Fisher,


Earlier this week, the Common
Education Committee in the Oklahoma
House of Representatives passed HB
1380, a bill you originally proposed,
with an overwhelming
majority of 11-4. If
signed into law, this bill
will ban the Advanced
Placement U.S. history
course from being taught
in high school classrooms in Oklahoma by
cutting off state funding
unless the College
t
Board revises the curriculum to be more
patriotic. You offer some helpful suggestions of important topics to cover in your
bill. If the College Board refuses, the curriculum ideas in your bill will be used as a
framework to design a statewide U.S. history course that better promotes the
American ideals you and others believe
need to be instilled in Oklahoman
teenagers.
You argue the course is left-wing and
revisionist, full of anti-American biases
that do not show off our countrys positive qualities to their best advantage, and
not reverent enough of our Founding
Fathers. But its not the first time the
APUSH curriculum newly redesigned
this year to promote what the College
Board calls historical thinking skills
instead of rote memorization has been
subject to criticism. Last August, the
Republican National Committee passed a
resolution demanding the College Board
revise APUSH curriculum and asking
Congress to stop funding the College
Board until the APUSH curriculum was
revised to satisfaction. It prompted the
College Board to release to the public a
sample APUSH exam to defend its curriculum, but nothing much came out of it. The
Republican National Committee has no
real power.

Movie mumbles: The story behind the Interstellar dialogue


By Lindsey Bahr
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES What did they say?


More than a few moviegoers have been
left asking that question. From Birdman
and Inherent Vice to Gone Girl and
Interstellar, films this Oscar season have
seemed more inaudible than ever.
Audiences have always had to deal with
the marble mouthed mumblers of cinema
Marlon Brando, for instance but
something else seemed to be going on
this past year. And were not talking
o b v i o us ch o i ces l i k e Bi l l Murray
whispering to Scarlett Johansson at the

end of Lost in Translation.


In Christopher Nolans Interstellar, in
particular, dialogue sounds muffled and
obscured in crucial scenes, from a climactic
emergency docking to a quiet confessional.
For the most part, the art of cinema sound
(beyond the score) is one of those background elements that only become evident
when something is wrong.
Like they said decades ago, nobody goes
home humming the sound effects, said veteran sound effects editor Bruce Tanis
(Fury).
It can be as cool and as obnoxious as it
wants to be if it serves the story in the right
way, explained Tanis.

However, if it takes you out of the film as


a viewer and youre trying to figure out what
this person did to get that sound in there,
thats a problem, he added.
The inability to understand what is being
said on screen is one of the most infuriating
theatrical experiences, especially without
the option to rewind, up the volume or turn
on the subtitles.
So those paying attention might then
have been surprised to see Interstellar
pick up nominations in both Oscar sound
categories: Mixing and Editing.
But according to people behind one of the
movies most creative, underappreciated
and misunderstood crafts, if you missed

something, it was probably meant to be


that way.
For a film like Interstellar, the process
starts with the sound mixer, who records the
dialogue and ambient sounds from the scene
being shot, including everything from
footsteps to acoustics, using overhead
boom microphones and body mics, mixing
the sounds live on set.
If I do my job in a natural way, you dont
really notice it, explained Interstellar
sound mixer Mark Weingarten.
Because of director Christopher Nolans
insistence that sets rely more on reality
than computer graphics, Weingarten had to

WHALE
Continued from page 1
a glimpse into the wildlifes December
through May journey from their northern
Arctic feeding grounds to warmer waters for
breeding and calving.
An estimated 15,000 to 20,000 gray
whales travel on this nearly 10,000 mile
round-trip migration that makes for some of
the worlds best sightseeing.
Whale watching is one way to view
Mother Nature and to experience the awe and
wonder of the natural environment, said
charter boat captain William Smitty. Whales
are some of the biggest creatures that live on
Earth and these are wild animals and theyre
out right on our doorsteps here.
Weighing up to 80,000 pounds and measuring up to 50 feet long, gray whales are federally protected and the focus of this locally
popular ecotourism.
Due to increased awareness and conservation efforts, these mammals that were once
nearly extinct in the 1960s have rebounded to
healthier populations, said Smitty, whos
been working out of Pillar Point Harbor for
the last 30 years and thrills at taking passen-

gers out on his boat the Riptide.
I enjoy sharing the marine environment
with my passengers, things that they would
never see in their normal lives. Its quite a
unique experience, Smitty said.
The annual migration generally starts near
Alaska where the colder waters boast more
food and involves the enormous creatures
making their way to warmer water breeding
and calving grounds near Baja California in
Mexico, said Donna Redstone, local programs and administrative coordinator with
the Oceanic Society.
Its generally the pregnant females that
will leave the feeding ground first, followed
by the males and then kind of the non-breeding ones and juveniles leave last. So its kind
of a parade, Redstone said. Its very impressive.
The Oceanic Society coordinates weekend
gray whale watching tours out of Pillar Point
Harbor as well as promotes conservation and
research of a variety of marine species, said
Director of Outreach Brian Hutchinson.
Through our gray whale watching tours,
Oceanic Society offers the opportunity to
encounter whales firsthand while also learning about their natural history and the conservation challenges they face. Gray whales

tions did go extinct and have today recovered in our region thanks to the actions of the
public and the government to protect them,
Hutchinson wrote in an email.
The gray whales migration path closely
follows the California coastline and while the
whales tend to swim further out as they hurry
to make their way south, the northern migration is just kicking into gear, Redstone said.
Typically starting in February, the newly
impregnated females begin heading north
first with the males following and the juveniles, calves and new moms leaving the
warmer waters last, Redstone said.
On their way back north, the gray whale
calves and moms tend to stay closer to the
coast so as to avoid predators like orcas,
Redstone said. The 12,000-mile round-trip
journey is one of the longest migrations
paths of any species, Redstone said.
The Marine Mammal Protection Act keeps
charter boats from approaching gray whales
closer than 100 yards, but the whales often
come in closer on their own, Redstone said.
These spectacular encounters also help to
support the preservation of the species,
Hutchinson said.
Whale watching programs played an
important role in demonstrating that whales
are worth more alive, through tourism, than
dead through whaling, Hutchinson said.

Oceanic Societys whale watching programs


continue to build public support for whale
conservation by allowing people to experience the whales beauty firsthand and to
become inspired to help protect them.
The Oceanic Society offers weekend tours
through May 10 and attendees are allowed a
second trip free of charge should they miss
out on a sighting their first time, Redstone
said.
Smitty, whos been in the business for
decades, said he runs numerous charter whale
watching and fishing tours showing off
Mother Nature at its finest. Always cautious
of the impact humans can have on gray
whales, Smitty said hes happy to share his
knowledge and experience with others interested in a close encounter with marine
wildlife.
One of the reasons Im still in the business
after 40 years, is every day is different. You
never know what youre going to see from
day to day because the ocean here is a very
unique wilderness that changes every day,
Smitty said. Its quite a spectacular environment.

glary, will also be arraigned in San
Mateo County Superior Court Monday
for charges of burglary, identity theft,
credit card fraud and possession of
stolen property stemming from an April
16 crime, said District Attorney Steve
Wagstaffe.
If convicted, Lawler could face up to
18 years in prison based on her criminal
history, Wagstaffe said.
Hagnere, 30, is set to appear in court
next Thursday on charges for other
crimes he allegedly committed in May.
Hagnere was out on bail for less than a
week when he was caught using stolen
credit cards with Lawler at the Hyatt and
could face up to 9 years in prison,
Wagstaffe said.
Lawler and Hagnere checked in to two
rooms at the Burlingame hotel Jan. 23
after using stolen credit cards to make
reservations via Orbitz, according to
prosecutors. A few days later, Orbitz
caught wind of the fraud and the hotel
locked the couple out of the rooms.
Police were called when the couple
arrived to gather their belongings and
found identifying information for more
than 10 victims, according to prosecu-

tors.
Hagnere was apprehended but as an
officer approached Lawler, who was
waiting in a rented Mercedes in the parking lot, she fled and hit the officer in the
chest with the side view mirror. The officer, who was on foot, was not injured,
according to prosecutors.
A countywide alert was sent out and,
after being briefly pursued on Interstate
280, Lawler eventually ditching the
rental car in Hillsborough and escaped,
according to prosecutors.
Lawler was apprehended Wednesday
and pleaded not guilty Thursday, according to prosecutors.
Were pleased that someone that
assaulted one of our officers with a vehi-

cle is no longer any kind of danger to


our officers or to officers in the Bay Area
in general, said Burlingame police Lt.
Jay Kiely.
The couples Burlingame crimes were
remarkably similar to an out-of-county
August incident.
Lawler and Hagnere were apprehended
at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara on
Great America Parkway last August and
charged with using stolen credit cards,
possessing drug paraphernalia and
resisting arrest, according to the San
Jose Mercury News.
In that case, the couple fled out of a
hotel window when police attempted to
serve an arrest warrant for Lawler. The
two made it onto the roof and Lawler,
who was reportedly naked at the time,
surrendered. Hagnere jumped off the
roofs edge and landed onto a tree where
he became stuck. Hagnere was arrested
after firefighters brought a ladder allowing him to climb down, according to the
Mercury News.
Wagstaffe said Hagneres Burlingame
crimes were increased from misdemeanors to felonies due to his prior San
Mateo County charges and prosecutors
would look into the alleged Santa Clara
County crimes.
Lawler and Hagnere will return to court
for a preliminary hearing March 2.
Lawler remains in custody on $250,000
bail, according to prosecutors.

DUFF gives genre a social media spin


By Lindsey Bahr
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

All teen comedies owe some debt to John


Hughes and Amy Heckerling.
The milieu of suburban teenage life that
they explored decades ago has defined the
genre since. The social divisions, the boredom, the dances, the irrepressible awkwardness and the irrational dreaminess of high
school students never before seemed so
accessible, and so neatly packaged with a
perfect soundtrack even if their scope was
rather limited to a particular set of middle
class students.
Its no surprise that we continue to tell
slightly different variations of the same
story. There are still outcasts and bullies and
war stories to be told from the halls of suburban high schools, and every generation
deserves its own silly teenage misfit story.
While its neither as biting as Mean Girls
nor as sweetly referential as Easy A, the
earnest and sometimes amusing The DUFF
is a fine addition to the canon.
In the film, Mae Whitman stars as Bianca,
an overall-wearing overachiever whos just
trying to navigate her senior year alongside
her two best friends Jess (Skyler Samuels)
and Casey (Bianca A. Santos).
But their dynamic is not equal, the handsome, popular and sweetly dim-witted football player Wesley (Robbie Amell) bluntly
informs Bianca at a party. Bianca, he
explains, is the Designated Ugly Fat Friend
(aka The DUFF) of the group. Shes the
one who goes unnoticed till someone wants
to gain access to her comparably more beautiful friends.
This revelation causes Bianca to take off
on her own, unfriending her longtime pals
(in the only way that contemporary kids
might know how on every last social
media site) and convincing Wesley to help
her break out of DUFF prison.

want or need to be popular in the classic


sense. She just wants to be treated as her
own person. And while Wesley might help
her find more flattering clothes and bras, his
main goal isnt to assimilate, its to make
Bianca more comfortable in her own skin.
Whitman, who cut her teeth on Arrested
Development as the homely Ann Veal,
stole scenes in Scott Pilgrim vs. the
World, and gained more mainstream recognition
on
the
television
show
Parenthood, is a star comedienne. Pintsized and porcelain-skinned, she uses her
unabashed physicality and expressive,
Elizabeth Taylor-like eyebrows to ultimate
effect, even if it takes a stretch of the imagination to accept the fact that this girl might
be overlooked or deemed ugly in a social setting.
Amell, meanwhile, uses his symmetrical
CW good looks (The Flash and The
Tomorrow People) well in a difficult role.
His easy chemistry with Whitman carries
the movie.
With a supporting cast that includes
Allison Janney (a bit wasted here), its Ken
Jeong who stands out. Jeong, who has made
a sort of cottage industry for himself playing twisted characters in already deviant
comedies, tones it down a notch here as an
affable, goofy editor at the school paper.

A pitch-perfect Costner in
moving McFarland USA
By Jocelyn Noveck
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

McFarland, USA could so easily have


been yet another mushy, feel-good, by-thenumbers sports underdog movie. And in
beginning, it seems like its heading there.
But soon, thanks to the genuine heart in
its (true) story and a pitch-perfect, beautifully lived-in performance by Kevin Costner,
it will likely win you over. So go ahead, surrender. Cry a little. This is one feel-good
movie that wont make you feel bad about
feeling good.
The story begins in August 1987 in Boise,
Idaho, when a high school football coach
named Jim White that name will end up
being very convenient to the story gets
fired from his job after throwing a shoe in
the direction of a snotty kid whos talking
back to him, accidentally bloodying him.
Jim, who has a history of anger issues,
packs up the family and moves to
McFarland, California, for a job at the only
school that will hire him.
Arriving in McFarland, a farming town

where the population is predominantly


Mexican-American, Whites daughter looks
nervously out the car window and asks: Are
we in Mexico? At a taqueria, White tries to
order a burger, but cant get one. When the
family encounters a group of young men
cruising in their cars, he immediately
thinks theyre dangerous.
These moments lay it on a little thick, but
soon, director Niki Caro (Whale Rider)
hits a more comfortable stride depicting a
prickly entry for the White family (the
always lovely Maria Bello plays the sadly
underdeveloped character of Jims wife) into
McFarland life. At the new school, White is
made assistant coach of the football team,
working for an ornery boss who cant win a
game and sees nothing of sending a kid with
a concussion back onto the field. Soon they
argue, and Whites off the team.
But he has a different idea. These boys,
who spend all their non-school hours picking in the fields for their parents, might not
be able to play football, but they sure can
run. And run, and run. White the kids call

DRAGON
Continued from page 1
The dragon team is moving into its 19th
year of existence, and the 17th year that it
will be performing in the San Francisco celebration.
Nathan Yang, captain of the dragon team,
said he is enthusiastic to perform in the
parade, as that is his favorite part of being
in the club.
There is an adrenaline rush that is hard to
find outside of the parade, said Yang, who
is in his fourth year of being part of the
dragon.
Yang is one of the five members of the
team dancing as the head of the dragon. Each
section of the dragon features two teams
which revolve in and out over short intervals during performances.
He said participating can be exhausting,
as running, bowing and dancing while holding a section of a 25-pound dragon head
demands a great degree of physical fitness.
Yang is the team captain and began in the
tail of the dragon but is now part of the team
that holds the head. He said the element he
appreciates most about being on the team is
the sense of community.
The team consists of all the grades at the
school. We dont care what grade you are in,
everyone is friendly to each other, he said.
Wayne Phillips, advisor of the dragon
team, spoke highly of Yangs abilities as
captain.
Nathan has been an incredible leader,
said Phillips. He has a passion for the dragon, and knows exactly what is going on
with it at all times.
Phillips said the team consists of 80 students, split among multiple smaller squads,
who perform as sections of the dragon and
then another eight who play percussion
instruments such as drums, cymbals and
gongs to accompany the dragon dance.
The most challenging position to play is
the tail, said Phillips, as it requires being
pulled by the rest of the body, and having to
react to teammate movements.

Preparation for Lunar New Year celebrations typically take six to eight weeks, said
Yang. Saturday, Feb. 21, will be the teams
last practice prior to its performance season.
Theres a tremendous amount of camaraderie, and a real commitment to a fine performance, said Phillips.
Participating in parades, especially the
Lunar New Year celebration in San
Francisco, makes all the hours spent practicing worth it, said Phillips.
When the parade is over, the adrenaline
is just huge, he said. Its a lot of work, at
the end, you really enjoy the results.
Yang echoed those sentiments, and said
that running alongside the dragon as part of
the relief team, before switching roles back
to performing, can give an awesome perspective to a team member.
When you look back and see its maneuvers, you really get a sense of something
bigger, he said. You see everything in
action.
Mills High School Principal Paul Belzer
said the dragon team provides a unique venue
for students to express their school spirit.
Its a really neat opportunity for students
to demonstrate their pride in Mills, he said.
Belzer said attending the performance in
San Francisco is fun because alumni from
past graduating classes frequently watch the
parade, and express the pride that they still

overcome a host of challenges in order to
get the best sound, including the fact that
the actors were wearing real helmets.
It was a bit of a logistical nightmare, but
it all worked out, he said.
Once the shooting is finished, the sound
editing team comes in to fill out the rest of
the effects, from the noise of the spaceship
to the clatter of the old Dodge truck that
Matthew McConaugheys character drives.
Each requires a new recording.
Nolan challenged Interstellar sound editor Richard King to create a visceral and real
experience for the audience and not just
nice, polite sound effects.
One of the things that Chris wanted to do
was to find some way to simulate this
tremendous physical sensation that you
would feel in the vicinity of a black hole,
said King. He wanted to find a way to alter
the sound inside the theaters.
King and the editing team settled on an
audio frequency where the sound would
hang in the theaters and actually make the
bodies in the theater shake a bit. He called it
a sonic soup.
In many ways, sound editors are inventors too, experimenting with everyday
objects to create extraordinary sounds,
like placing an oscillating sander on a
table full of metallic objects to simulate a
ship responding to intense gravity. Or
creating a gravel gun and blasting a truck
that has mics on the inside to build out the

reluctant, at best. Families are resistant.
Obstacles keep appearing. But White persists.
If you dont know what ends up happening, after some early disappointments,
you havent seen too many sports underdog movies. The added layer in this film is
the huge learning curve that White and his
family face in McFarland. To get the support of the local families to keep their
sons on the team, he must eat with them,
reason with them, bond with them. He

sounds of an extreme dust storm.
As far as the infamously inaudible (and
pivotal) exchange between Jessica Chastain
and Michael Caine goes, it wasnt a recording problem. It was intentional.
Chris told me he cut out some of the
words Michael said. He didnt want you to
know what he was saying, said
Weingarten. I dont think he wanted
Michael to reveal what he was revealing in
the scene.
Audiences, he explained, figure it out
based on what Chastains character does
next.
The same principle applies to the scenes
where the sound effects overpower the dialogue on the ship even if Weingarten did
notice some differences between theater
audio systems, another element of movie
sound. But, he said, the essence of the story
remained intact through other cues.
(Nolan) felt like the music and the sound
were conveying the story in those moments
and to lower the energy of the music and the
sound in order to hear a softly spoken bit of
dialogue would have been counterproductive
to the mood hes trying to create, said
King.
Its throwaway dialogue, or in some
cases, its something we get by seeing the
body language and the faces, he added.
So how should moviegoers contend with
future movie-mumbling?
Trust the director. Especially when
youre in the hands of someone like Chris
Nolan, just go with it. See where hes going
to take you. You may not like it, but dont
second guess. Assume this is the way he
wants it, go with it, and then decide how you
feel, King said.
amusement of his athletes.
As we mentioned, all of this could easily
have veered into obvious formula, where
you shed a few tears at climactic moments
and then feel a bit silly for it. But the
authentic feel we get from so many of the
actors a number are from McFarland, and
had never acted professionally helps
keep the movie grounded, and so does
Costner. At 60 (but looking a lot younger),
the actor is so comfortable in this sort of
role, he could probably do it in his sleep,
but he lends a lovely low-key yet totally
committed presence to the film. Its hard to
imagine anyone else doing the role better.
The most satisfying moment in the film is
at the very end, when we learn what happened to White and his team in later years.
This may be where youll need the Kleenex.
Again, dont feel bad about it. Its a nice
story, and nicely told.
McFarland, USA, a Walt Disney Studios

THE DAILY JOURNAL

OSCARS
Continued from page 18
Birdmans formal ambitions and extraordinary ensemble cast are impressive, the
earnest 12-year experiment that spawned a
compelling film in Boyhood is just too
good a narrative to ignore.
S h o ul d Wi n : Boyhood, but not
because of dedication. A lot of people toil
for years on their dream projects.
Boyhood is a great and deeply humane
film that celebrates the ordinariness of the
everyday and is destined to be a classic.
Sho ul d Hav e Been a Co ntender: In
ten years well look back on
Interstellars near-absence from this
years Academy Awards as a grave cinematic injustice. At least Nolan is in good company. 2001: A Space Odyssey was shut
out of the best picture race too.

BEST ACTOR
BAHR: Wi l l Wi n: In one of the most
hotly contested categories of the entire
race, it wouldnt be surprising if the academy went with the comparatively elder
statesmen Michael Keaton for the comeback performance of a lifetime. Redmayne
will get another shot.
S h o ul d Wi n : Keaton. We shouldnt
really care about the artistic endeavors of a
past his prime megalomaniac, but Keaton
was able to make Riggan Thomson at turns
sympathetic, wholly unlikable and desperately sad.
Sho ul d Hav e Been a Co ntender:
There are so many great performances that
would have warranted a nomination here,
including David Oyelowo for his powerful
and studied take on Martin Luther King, Jr
in Selma and Oscar Isaacs determined
entrepreneur in A Most Violent Year.
COYLE: Wi l l Wi n: Redmayne. The
freckled one appears to be the favorite for
his technically impressive performance.
Sho ul d Wi n: Keaton. Redmayne is a
talented young actor, but hes a little precious for a physicist. Keaton has been an
electric live-wire for decades.
Sho ul d Hav e Been a Co ntender: The
performance of the year was Timothy
Spalls J.M.W. Turner in Mr. Turner. If
the Oscars were judged on grunting ability
(and shouldnt they be?), hed win in a
cakewalk.

Tilda Swinton, Only Lovers Left Alive.
In Jim Jarmuschs bitingly funny vampire

Tangier street. One of cinemas most exotic creatures.
BAHR: Wi l l Wi n: Five-time nominee
Moore is long overdue for an Oscar and her
nuanced portrayal of an accomplished
woman deteriorating at the hands of early
onset Alzheimers in an otherwise
mediocre movie is her golden ticket.
Sho ul d Wi n: Moore for any other performance? But if we have to count this
years contenders: Felicity Jones. The
Theory of Everything is Jane Hawkings
story and Jones self-possessed take on a
woman in an incredibly difficult situation
has been upstaged by the flashier performance in the film.
Sho ul d Hav e Been a Co ntender:
Comedian Jenny Slate showed great depth,
humor and empathy in the perfectly realized Obvious Child, a film so enjoyable
and of its time that older guard institutions
probably didnt know what to do with it.

BEST SUPPORING ACTOR


B AHR: Wi l l Wi n : J. K. Simmons
maniacal jazz instructor in Whiplash has
been the top choice since the film premiered at Sundance over a year ago.
Sho ul d Wi n: Simmons, and itll be
extremely disappointing if he doesnt lose
it at the Oscar orchestra when they try to
play him off.
Sho ul d Hav e Been a Co ntender:
Tony Revolori was barely even in the conversation for his magnetic, loyal lobby
boy Zero in The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Wes Andersons stylish aesthetic seems to
blind people to the fact that there truly
compelling and emotional performances
beneath the Popsicle-colored environs.
COYLE: Wi l l Wi n: Simmons so blows

Sho ul d Wi n: Simmons. A career character actor takes a well-deserved bow.

Sho ul d Hav e Been a Co ntender:
Every year, countless performances from

like a genuine mistake that Agata Kulesza
from the Polish film Ida didnt win a
nomination. As the bitter, hard-drinking
judge Wanda, heavy with Polish history,
shes about as good as it gets.
BAHR: Wi l l Wi n: Funny that some of
us once thought Arquettes deeply felt portrayal of a mother and a woman coming
into her own would go unnoticed by
Academy. Now, the awards in the bag.
Sho ul d Wi n: Arquette, and we should
all be thrilled that a subtle performance in
an original film is the undisputed front runner.
Sho ul d Hav e Been a Co ntender:
Relative unknown Katherine Waterston
elevated Inherent Vices Shasta Fay
Hepworth from arm-candy in distress to a
woman who is at turns fully formed and a

flawless melding of actress and role.

BEST DIRECTOR
BAHR: Wi l l Wi n: The formal ambitions that probably wont be enough to
secure a best picture win for Birdman will
likely be acknowledged with a best director
win for Alejandro Gonzalez Iqarritu.
Sho ul d Wi n: The scrappy one-week-ayear shooting schedule and lack of a fully
realized script might make Richard
Linklater easier to overlook in this category, but that would be mistake.
Sho ul d Hav e Been a Co ntender:
Inherent Vice is another one of those
movies that is ahead of its time. Paul
Thomas Anderson continues to reinvent
himself with every picture and this hazy,
evocative private eye yarn is both exquisite and underappreciated.
COYLE: Wi l l Wi n: Like best picture,
this comes down to the showy elan of
Inarritus Birdman against the patient
humanism of Linklater. I suspect
Birdman takes picture, leaving director
to the Texan.

of Andersons The Grand Budapest Hotel,
the culmination of a trio of top-notch

Was David Finchers examination of marriage in Gone Girl too dark for some

BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY


BAHR: Wi l l Wi n: With two co-written
screenplay nominations to his name, the
Academy has already flirted with Wes
Andersons idiosyncratic dialogue and storytelling, and it looks like theyll finally
embrace it with a statue for the mainstream
hit The Grand Budapest Hotel, which
Anderson co-wrote with Hugo Guinness.
Sho ul d Wi n: Anderson is expert at juxtaposing whimsy with the extremely dark
and cynical and the The Grand Budapest
Hotel is exemplary of his (and
Guinnesss) unique talent for creating compelling yet unconventional stories.
Sho ul d Hav e Been a Co ntender:
J.C. Chandors elegant and controlled A
Most Violent Year came and went without
much fanfare, but this forgotten gem
explores characters, motivations and
moral ambiguities with a first-rate story.
COYLE: Wi l l Wi n: This is likely the
biggest award the academy will bestow on
the The Grand Budapest Hotel, which
comes in with nine nods yet someone not
one for Ralph Fiennes.
Sho ul d Wi n: Anderson deserves it, but
a case could also be made for Dan Gilroys
wonderfully wacked out Nightcrawler.
Should Have Been a Contender: The
thickly atmospheric A Most Violent Year
turned the gangster movie on its head, situating itself not with crooks on the street,
but with supposedly straight businessmen.

BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY


COYLE: Wi l l Wi n: Damien Chazelles
Whiplash (only adapted because he
first made a Whiplash short) is taught
and full of something great scripts have:
snappy, quotable lines. It should be to the
academys tempo.
Sho ul d Wi n: Paul Thomas Anderson
(Inherent Vice) deserves a medal just for
trying to adapt Thomas Pynchon and not
losing his mind in the process.
Sho ul d Hav e Been a Co ntender:
How did Gillian Flynns screenplay for
Gone Girl not make it in here? A worldwide bestseller is turned into deliciously
pulpy suburban noir: This is what this category is for.
BAHR: Wi l l Wi n: Chazelles pulsating Whiplash, presents a portrait of an
artist on the edge of greatness like weve
never seen before.
Sho ul d Wi n: Whiplash, even though
its still a little baffling why its considered an adapted screenplay.
Sho ul d Hav e Been a Co ntender:
Writing a novel and writing a screenplay
are two very different skills and Gone
Girl author and screenwriter Gillian Flynn
somehow mastered both. Her brutal and
necessary cuts and modifications helped
steer the film to stand-alone greatness.

approved by Prime, Horsley said that


contracts between the county and
health care outlets would remain in
place, but $11.5 million in funds drawn
from the countys half-cent Measure A
tax offered to Daughters of Charity
would be halted.
Money from the half-cent tax set
aside for seismic retrofitting to the
local medical facilities is offered solely
to the nonprofit organization, and will
not be transitioned to Prime, should
the health care provider ultimately take
control of the Seton facilities, Horsley
said.
He said he expects that there will be
some changes to the services offered
by the Seton facilities, but is hopeful
that the sale could prevent the hospital
doors from being shuttered.
I think ultimately this was the best
decision, said Horsley.
Supervisor Adrienne Tissier, who
represents District 5 which includes
Daly City, said she also supported the
sale, and noted the importance of keeping the Seton facility open in the city.
She said she hopes that Prime ultimately accepts the sale, and feared what
closure would mean for residents.
It would be a huge loss for the county, she said, in regards to the health
care facility possibly being shuttered.
Tissier said she too believed the
county would not continue giving
Measure A funds to the hospital should
Prime accept the sale, but expected that
representatives from the health care
provider would want to further discuss
the issue.

Daly City Councilman David


Canepa, who staunchly favored the sale
to Prime, echoed the praise for the
approval of the sale.
The attorney general made the right
decision, he said. She made a decision that listened to our community,
and she should be commended for the
action she took.
He said the ball is now in the court of
Prime to accept the sale, under the
terms set by Harris.
I am confident Prime will do the
right thing, he said.
Seton Medical Center is the largest
employer in Daly City, with 1,200
workers. Seton Coastside in Moss
Beach is the other Daughters of Charity
facility in San Mateo County.
A spokesman from Prime Healthcare
said in an email it was too early for the
health provider to commit to agreeing
to the sale, under the conditions stipulated by the attorney general.
Given the complexity and extent of
the conditions imposed, we need time
to evaluate the conditions and their
effect on the viability of the hospitals
and the system, said Fred Ortega, a
spokesman from Prime. We expect to
reach a decision in a matter of days.
Those terms include requiring Prime
to operate five of the hospitals for at
least 10 years, continued participation
in Medi-Cal and Medicare programs,
among other conditions. Prime had
expressed willingness to keep the hospital open for only five years.
Prime officials have promised to
spend $150 million on facility

being vacated by Barbara Boxer.


The California Nurses Association
supported the sale, arguing that a deal
with Prime is the best way to keep the
hospitals open. Association executive
director RoseAnn DeMoro urged Prime
to comply with Harris conditions.
But United Healthcare Workers West
opposed the deal, expressing concern
that Ontario-based Prime would shut
down the hospitals if it took control.
The union also noted Prime has long
faced criticism over its billing practices and patient privacy.
Harris conditions require Prime to
revise its debt-collection practices.
Union President Dave Regan said in
a statement that Harris conditions
would protect community health care
and services, but questioned if Prime
will live up to the requirements.
Both unions have tens of thousands
of members in California and have
given to Harris campaigns in the past.

her office.
Harris conditions are extensive,
and many are unprecedented, Prime
Healthcare said in a statement. The two
health care systems will need to evaluate the viability and future stability
of the DCHS hospitals under these
conditions.
Daughters of Charity said it was
pleased with Harris decision, citing

improvements in the next three years,


as well as maintaining existing services at the hospitals and saving the
7,600 jobs at the acquired facilities.
The California Nurses Association
and National Nurses United said in a
prepared statement that the organizations supported the sale, as it would
save nursing jobs at the hospitals.
While we havent reviewed the
entire document, based on the provisions cited in the attorney generals
statement, we would hope that Prime
will comply with these conditions
which will keep the hospitals open just
as nurses, nuns, patients and community residents have rallied to achieve,
said RoseAnn DeMoro, executive
director of the California Nurses
Association.
Even the SEIU-United Health Care
Workers West, a nurses union which
had opposed the sale to Prime, praised
the stipulations in the approval by
Harris.
Yet in a prepared statement, the
union expressed skepticism about the
commitment Prime would show to local
health care.
If Prime lives up to both the letter
and spirit of the conditions placed on
this sale, community health care and
services for low-income families will
be protected, but given our history
with Prime, thats a big if, said Dave
Regan, president of SEIU-UHW.
The other hospitals included in the
sale are OConnor Hospital in San
Jose, Saint Louise Regional Hospital
in Gilroy, St. Francis Medical Center in
Lynwood and St. Vincents Medical
Center in Los Angeles.

Harris decision requires Prime to
operate St. Francis, OConnor, Saint

10 years. It requires Prime to run Seton
Coastside as a skilled nursing facility.
St. Vincent has a five-year requirement.
Some of the requirements track the
agreement between the two health care
systems. Prime already agreed to
assume about $350 million in pension
debt, retire about $400 million in
other debts and liabilities, spend $150

of the 7,600 jobs as possible.
