Redwood Citys budget strong, reserves up


Reserves may climb to $27 million when fiscal year ends in June

Much of the council discussion
centered around parking demand
downtown as it discussed its priorities, which included looking at a
pilot program to increase street
sweeping, add more hours to the
Schaberg Library and creating
programs for seniors.

The council adopted a policy


that 15 percent to 20 percent of its
general fund budget, which totals
about $97 million, will be set
aside as reserve but the figure is
currently projected to be closer to
26 percent, Assistant City
Manager Audrey Ramberg reported
to the council.

Assembly Speaker Atkins proposal would deliver
hundreds of millions to cities for new development
By Fenit Nirappil
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Hugh Rienhoff spent seven years of his life, with the help of doctors at Johns Hopkins University, devoted to
finding the cause of his daughter Beatrices condition which causes her eyes to be spaced wider than usual and
her leg muscles to be weak. His work led to the discovery of a gene mutation in her DNA that no one else in the
world has. The familys story will now be the subject of a documentary.

One in 7 billion
Documentary to focus on girl with rare condition
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Beatrice Rienhoff, 11, is one of


the most unique individuals in the
world but without years of
research by her father, she nor
anyone else would know why.
At the moment of birth we
knew there was something different about her, Hugh Rienhoff
said.
But her doctors had no idea what
her condition was and told her parents, Hugh and Lisa, that no one in
the world may know.

But Hugh felt like the doctors


were giving him the runaround and
he has a low tolerance for the
runaround.
So, the San Carlos doctor and
geneticist decided to figure it out
himself.
And he did.
The familys story will now be
the subject of a documentary about
the unbreakable bond between
father and daughter, said filmmaker Kori Feener.
Feener plans to document Beas
life over the next two years and is
seeking $35, 000 in funding

through a Kickstarter campaign to


get the project off the ground.
So far, 228 individuals have
donated a total of $30,399 to the
campaign as of Wednesday.
Feener wants the finished product to be an inspiring coming-ofage film about growing up with a
rare disease and the importance of
family advocacy.
The Kickstarter campaign ends
Saturday, Feb. 28, which happens
to be Rare Disease Day.
Feener points out that up to 30

Massachusetts man selling,
shipping snow from his yard
MANCHESTER-by-the-SEA, Mass.
A Massachusetts man has found a
way to profit from the several feet of
snow in his yard: Hes shipping it to
people in warmer climates for the bargain price of $89 for six pounds.
Kyle Waring, of Manchester-by-theSea, got the idea while shoveling
snow earlier this winter and launched

At first he shipped 16. 9-ounce
snow-filled bottles for $19.99, but he
found the snow melted by the time it
arrived at its destination.
So he came up with a new plan, selling six pounds at a time. He tells

LONDON Londons firefighters


say sun rays refracted by a Nutella jar
likely caused a house fire.
The citys fire brigade says investigators believe the glass jar which
had been emptied of the hazelnut
spread had been placed on a window
sill and refracted sunlight, setting
blinds alight.
According to a statement posted
Tuesday by the brigade, the family was
not at home but the blaze killed a dog.
Fire investigator Charlie Pugsley
said: It sounds far-fetched that a jar
containing a few rubber bands caused a
severe house fire but thats exactly
what happened.
The fire happened Feb. 15 in southwest London.

An online fundraiser has been set up for the family of a


father and son killed in a boating accident off of Coyote
Point in San Mateo County.
Guillermo Ruvalcaba-Sandoval, 49, and
Luis Ruvalcaba, 22, were killed after their
canoe capsized last week. A GoFundMe
page for their family was created on
Saturday and had garnered $1,840 as of
Wednesday afternoon.
A third person in the canoe, 22-year-old
Larissa Castaneda, was Luis fiancee and
Luis Ruvalcaba the only survivor in the accident, according to the GoFundMe page.
Around 10:20 p.m. on Feb. 16, the U.S. Coast Guard
responded to a report of three people who had left the shore
of Oyster Point and had not returned, Coast Guard officials
said.
The trio had gone out fishing in a 12-foot orange canoe
and their vehicle was still parked at the Oyster Point Marina
that night, according to Coast Guard officials.
Coast Guard crews searched for the people by boat and helicopter. A South San Francisco fire boat crew also assisted in
the search and at about 1:20 a.m. the next day, they heard a
cry about a mile off the coast and found a woman who they
pulled out the water, according to the Coast Guard.
The GoFundMe page identified her as Casteneda.
She was taken to a hospital where she was conscious and
responsive, Coast Guard officials said.
About 30 minutes later, crews found a man later identified
as Ruvalcaba-Sandoval, who was unconscious and unresponsive, Coast Guard officials said.
He was transported to Mills-Peninsula Medical Center in
Burlingame and later pronounced dead, according to the
Coast Guard.
Later that morning around 8:50 a.m., 22-year-old
Ruvalcaba was found in the water south of Coyote Point,
Coast Guard officials said.
Luis Ruvalcaba was a member of the San Mateo County
Sheriffs Offices explorer program in which he volunteered
with the search and rescue unit from 2011 to 2013, according
to the GoFundMe page.
A funeral mass for the men was scheduled for Wednesday
morning in Colma.

As
of Wednesday
morning,
Phasavath was being held at the San

Yacht thief sentenced


for violating probation
A 62-year-old Wyoming man who

Leslie Gardner three counts of violating the terms of
his probation, according to San Mateo
County District Attorney Steve

He and his two buddies stole the
boat, started partying wildly, somehow steered it through the Golden Gate
out to the coast while drinking to
excess, Wagstaffe said. Then, what
brought it to everyones attention,
was that they fell asleep and the boat
was going around in circles until they
got caught in a current and washed up
on a Pacifica beach.
Wagstaffe said that Gardners latest
court appearance last week was not
related to any newly committed
crimes. Gardner simply failed to pay
the $1.38 million restitution ordered
by the court and disappeared, which are
both violations of the terms of his

Gardners probation was terminated,

Half Moon Bay has first


state of the city address
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Berkeley has temporary banned police drones.

Berkeley City Council imposing


one-year ban on police drones
BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

The Berkeley City Council has voted to


impose a one-year moratorium on the use of
drones by the citys Police Department but
authorized the fire department to use them
for disaster response purposes.
The councils vote at its meeting on
Tuesday night disappointed Bob Meola of
the citys Peace and Justice Commission,
which had proposed a two-year moratorium
on the use of drones.
The commission has been seeking a permanent ban on drones for more than two
years and Meola said today that the proposed two-year moratorium was merely a
temporary Band-Aid for a potentially criti-

cal wound while the city develops a longterm policy.


Meola said of the City Council, They
might as well have done nothing about
drones.
In their vote, the council pledged to formulate a policy for the police use of drones.
Some councilmembers said at the meeting
that the proposed two-year moratorium
would have been too long, too broad in
scope or possibly unnecessary altogether.
Seven councilmembers voted for the compromise measure that was adopted. Lori
Droste voted against it because she thought
its unnecessary and Kriss Worthington
abstained because he wants a more restrictive policy.

Redwood City manager to retire


DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

Redwood City Manager Bob Bell


announced he intends to retire at the end of
June, the city announced Wednesday.
He joined the city in 2005 as its Human
Resources director and served as assistant
city manager until taking over the citys top
leadership position in 2010.
Bell took the interim city manager position in November 2010 after former city
manager Peter Ingram suddenly resigned.
He is credited for leading Redwood City
out of the worst economic downturn in
decades and implementing the City
Councils vision for economic growth and
financial solvency.
Redwood City is a special place and I am
proud to have been a part of this community. We have accomplished great things
because of the vision, commitment and ded-

ication of everyone
inside and outside of City
Hall who cares deeply
about this community,
Bell wrote in a statement.
Mayor Jeff Gee said
Bell exceeded the councils expectations.
Bob set forth a strong
vision of a responsive
Bob Bell
and accountable government, based on the principles of customer
service, fiscal responsibility and efficiency, Gee wrote in a statement.
The city paid Bell more than $223,000
annually.
Bell is retiring to pursue new personal and
professional opportunities and challenges.
The City Council will be meeting in the
coming weeks to develop a plan for selecting the next city manager.

Full of optimism and pride, the mayor of


Half Moon Bay gave the first-ever state of
the city address while outlining achievements, highlighting partnerships and
expressing dedication toward addressing the
challenges that lie ahead for the cozy coastal
community.
The city is making strides in ascending
from the grips of the recession coupled with
debt from a multimillion-dollar lawsuit settlement, forging partnerships to enhance
services, working on capital improvement
projects and undertaking the extensive
General Plan update, said Mayor Marina
Fraser at Tuesday nights address.
Although state of the city addresses are
commonplace among San Mateo County
municipalities and offer a broad overview of
current conditions, Half Moon Bay had never
presented one. It was with the encouragement
of new City Manager Magda Gonzalez that
Fraser said she was pleased to present the
first.
Some people say that weve survived the
last number of very difficult years with the
recession, legal settlements and other economic challenges, Fraser said. I want to
tell you that we have done much more than
merely survive. All of us in Half Moon Bay
have reason to be very proud of where we are
today and where we can be tomorrow.
Fraser said the city has much to be proud of
over the last year, its invested in overdue
maintenance such as repaving city streets,
restructured city departments to streamline
the process of opening a business, collaborated on an economic development action
plan and is officially building a new library.
Yet challenges remain. Traffic is a significant problem and will need a regionally coordinated response, reductions in staff mean the
city must continue to do more for less and
officials are still working with California
State Parks to repair the failed Pilarcitos
Creek Bridge currently segmenting the communitys beloved coastal trail, Fraser said.
After a heated debate over the fate of the
historic Main Street Bridge and a proposed
continuation of a half-cent sales tax served as
points of contention in last years elections,
repairing community morale and strengthening communication served as an underlying
theme.
This must be a two-way street. We all have
to listen to each other, respect each others
perspective, find common ground together
and move forward with the best interest of our

Marina Fraser

community at heart,
Fraser said.
She encouraged everyone in the community to
share their ideas and
hopes for the future of the
city as it works to update
its General Plan a citywide planning document
that guides future development and serves as a
framework for policy

decisions.
[Its] the blueprint of sustainability for
what the community wants our city to be over
the next 20 years, Fraser said. I encourage
everyone to get involved and to understand
and participate in making this plan something that will serve us well into the next
generation.
As many suffered due to the economic
recession, Half Moon Bay was also struck
with defending itself in the Beachwood
development lawsuit. The city was found at
fault for ruining more than 20 acres of developable land due to a municipal drainage project and was facing a $42 million settlement.
After years of hard work renegotiating,
recouping a significant portion from insurance companies and taking out loans, Fraser
said stronger finances are ahead with about
$1.2 million freed up annually after the debt
is paid off.
Im thrilled to say well be able to pay off
those bonds 20 years early. I think thats
awesome, Fraser said. This is a big deal and
it put city finances into much better shape,
including bettering our credit rating.
Sustaining fiscal prudence may require the
city to continue its partnerships with local
nonprofits for services as well as leverage
economies of scale with other agencies,
Fraser said.
The city paired with the Coastside Boys
and Girls Club to run recreation programs,
continues to contract with the San Mateo
County Sheriffs Office for law enforcement
services, is working with the Friends of the
Half Moon Bay Library to help plan and pay
for its new facility and will continue to work
with the county to improve the coast, Fraser
said.
In closing her speech, Fraser urged the
community to stay involved in city activities and engage as it updates its General Plan
and prepares to construct a new library.
Weve come a long way in the last year
and Im enormously proud to be your mayor,
Fraser said. Im proud of the foundation we
are creating for the future.

Disguise-wearing bank robber sentenced


By Dave Brooksher
BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

A man who wore a disguise to rob a


bank in Burlingame was sentenced
Wednesday to five years of probation
and ordered to complete a drug treatment program after pleading no contest last month to felony robbery
charges.
Mitchell Joseph Garcia, 56, was
sentenced by San Mateo County
Superior Court Judge Leland Davis to
the probation term and two years in the
Delancey Street Foundations residential treatment program, according to
Garcias attorney Jeff Jackson.
Garcia will also be required to pay
$5, 565 in restitution to Bank of
America and to stay away from Bank of
America premises, District Attorney
Steve Wagstaffe said.
On July 5, Garcia walked into the
Burlingame branch at 400 El Camino

Real disguised as a
woman and handed a
series of flashcards
to a teller claiming
that he had a gun
and a bomb, prosecutors said.
Garcia also brandished a black-andMitchell Garcia white plastic device
emitting flashing
green lights before fleeing the scene
with $5,565 in cash, according to
prosecutors.
More than a year earlier, on April 24,
2013, Garcia had attempted to rob the
same bank in a similar fashion while
wearing fake dreadlocks and a fake
mustache that kept falling off. That
attempted bank robbery failed when
Garcia fled the scene before the teller
gave him any money, prosecutors said.
Investigators got a DNA match from
the first robbery and obtained a war-

rant for Garcias arrest. He was eventually arrested later in July 2014 at a residential hotel in San Francisco and
pleaded no contest on Jan. 13 to
felony robbery and attempted robbery
charges.
Jackson said Wednesday mornings
sentence reflects the judges belief that
drug use is the root cause of his clients
criminal behavior.
Mr. Garcia has had alcohol and significant methamphetamine issues for
roughly 40 years, Jackson said. For
the past five months hes been in a
treatment program in a jail and done
really well.
My client worked hard to address
his own substance abuse issues and he
was very honest and remorseful to the
judge and to the tellers that he
harmed, Jackson said. He took full
responsibility and so Im hopeful that
the program will be what he needs to
turn his life around.

White House threatens veto


of bill to overhaul education law
WASHINGTON The White House threatened Wednesday to veto a Republican bill to
overhaul the widely criticized No Child Left
Behind law, calling the effort a significant
step backwards. The veto threat came as lawmakers began debate on the measure in the
House. A vote is expected on Friday.
Republicans say the bill would restore local
control in schools and stop top-down education mandates. Democrats say it would allow
billions in federal dollars to flow out without
ensuring they will improve student learning.
The White House said the bill abdicates the
historic federal role in elementary and second-

Security during a news conference.

Deal sets up Homeland


Security vote in Senate
By David Espo and Erica Werner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Three days before a partial Homeland Security shutdown, lawmakers cleared the way Wednesday for Senate
passage of legislation to fund the agency
without immigration-related provisions
opposed by President Barack Obama.
Approval in the Senate would send the
issue to the House, where some conservatives derided the plan as a surrender to the
White House. Other Republicans predicted it
would clear, but Speaker John Boehner
declined to say if he would put it to a vote.
Im waiting for the Senate to act. The
House has done their job, he said at a news
conference where he repeatedly sidestepped
questions about his plans.
Increasingly, though, it appeared the only
alternative to House acceptance of the
Senate measure or perhaps a short-term
funding bill was the partial shutdown of a
federal department with major anti-terrorism
responsibilities and the likelihood the
GOP would shoulder whatever political
blame resulted.
The developments in Congress unfolded
as Obama met at the White House with
immigration activists before departing for a
speech in Florida, where more than 23 percent of the population is of Hispanic
descent. One person attending the meeting,

Frank Sharry quoted Obama as saying


Republicans were engaging in kabuki to
appease conservatives who adamantly
oppose presidential directives that would
allow more than 4 million immigrants to
remain in the country without threat of
deportation even though they came to the
country illegally.
Obama also predicted his administration
would win a reversal in court of a ruling that
has temporarily blocked his policies from
taking effect, according to Sharry, who is
executive director of Americas Voice.
The president had already arrived in
Florida aboard Air Force One when the
Senate took the first of several votes that
could be required to pass the stand-alone
spending bill. The tally was 98-2, reflecting
a bipartisan sentiment that it was time to
bring the current episode to a close.
The Homeland Security funding legislation has been at the core of a politically
charged struggle for weeks in the Senate.
Democrats have repeatedly blocked action
on the measure, objecting that it included
House-passed immigration provisions that
the White House opposed.
With the threatened partial shutdown
approaching, Senate Majority Leader Mitch
McConnell, R-Ky., retreated on Tuesday,
offering separate votes on two bills. One
would provide DHS funding, while the other
would repeal Obamas immigration directives issued last year.

U.S.-Israel quarrel
intensifies over
Netanyahu speech
By Julie Pace and Laurie Kellman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Trading barbs, the U.S.


and Israel escalated their increasingly public spat Wednesday over Benjamin
Netanyahus GOP-engineered congressional
speech next week, with the Israeli prime
minister accusing world powers of rolling
over to allow Tehran to develop nuclear
weapons. Secretary of State John Kerry
openly questioned Netanyahus judgment
on the issue.
The comments injected new tension into
an already strained relationship between the
close allies ahead of Netanyahus address to
Congress next Tuesday. More Democratic
lawmakers announced they would skip the
speech, which was orchestrated by GOP
leaders without the Obama administrations
knowledge.
Netanyahu hopes his speech will
strengthen opposition to a potential

nuclear deal with Iran, President Barack


Obamas signature foreign policy objective. U.S. and Iranian officials reported
progress in negotiations this week on a deal
that would clamp down on Tehrans nuclear
activities for at least 10 years but then
slowly ease restrictions.
Netanyahu lashed out at the U.S. and other
usual staunch allies of Israel.
It appears that they have given up on
that commitment and are accepting that Iran
will gradually, within a few years, will
develop capabilities to produce material for
many nuclear weapons, he said in Israel.
They might accept this but I am not willing to accept this, he said in remarks delivered in Hebrew and translated. I respect the
White House, I respect the president of the
United States, but in such a fateful matter
that can determine if we exist or not, it is
my duty to do everything to prevent this
great danger to the state of Israel.
Kerry, testifying on Capitol Hill in

REUTERS

Israels Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pauses while he speaks to supporters of his Likud
party as he campaigns in the West Bank Jewish settlement of Maale Adumim, near Jerusalem.
Washington, dismissed Netanyahus worries. He argued that a 2013 interim agreement with Iran that the prime minister also
opposed had in fact made Israel safer by
freezing key aspects of the Islamic republics nuclear program.
He may have a judgment that just may
not be correct here, Kerry said.
His comments, as well as statements from
other top U.S. officials, made clear the
Obama administration had no plans to mask
its frustrations during Netanyahus visit.
In an interview Tuesday, National

Security Adviser Susan Rice said plans for


Netanyahus speech had injected a degree
of partisanship into a U.S.-Israel relationship that should be above politics.
Its destructive to the fabric of the relationship, Rice told the Charlie Rose show.
Its always been bipartisan. We need to
keep it that way.
Netanyahus plans to speak to Congress
have irritated many Democratic members,
but also have put them in a difficult spot
fearing they will look anti-Israel if they
dont attend.

Netanyahu: World powers have given up in Iran nuke talks


By Ian Deitch
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

JERUSALEM In his sharpest criticism


yet, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin

Netanyahu said Wednesday that world powers have given up on stopping Iran from
developing nuclear weapons in ongoing
negotiations.
Netanyahus comments, at a meeting of
his Likud Party outside of Jerusalem, come

as he plans to address the U.S. Congress on


the nuclear negotiations.
The West fears Iran could build an atomic
bomb with its nuclear program. Iran says its
program is for peaceful purposes. The
Islamic Republic is now negotiating a final
deal with the U.S., Britain, France, Russia,
China and Germany, with hopes of on a preliminary deal in March and a follow-up pact
in June.
Netanyahu, as well as many in Israel,
view a nuclear-armed Iran as a threat to its
very existence, citing Tehrans repeated
calls for Israels destruction and its support
for groups like Hezbollah.
In his remarks, Netanyahu said that the
greatest challenge Israel faces is the threat
of Iran arming itself with nuclear weapons
with a declared goal of annihilating us.
From the agreement that is forming it
appears that they (world powers) have

given up on that commitment and are


accepting that Iran will gradually, within a
few years, develop capabilities to produce
material for many nuclear weapons, he
said. They might accept this but I am not
willing to accept this.
Netanyahus remarks come amid an uproar
over his upcoming visit to Washington. He
accepted a Republican invitation to address
Congress about Iran in early March, but the
speech has angered the Obama administration because it was arranged without consulting the White House, a breach of diplomatic protocol.
Relations between Netanyahu and the
White House always have been tense. His
planned speech also has drawn fire in Israel,
coming just two weeks before national elections. Netanyahu has rejected the criticism,
saying it is his duty to lobby against the
nuclear deal.

Representatives grill Kerry on


aspects of Iran nuclear talks
By Deb Reichman and Matthew Lee
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Secretary of State John


Kerry played defense Wednesday on Capitol
Hill, fielding dozens of questions from lawmakers worried about what Iran could get in a
deal being negotiated to block its ability to
make an atomic weapon.
California Republican Rep. Ed Royce,
chairman of the House Foreign Affairs
Committee, told Kerry at a hearing that members of the panel have serious concerns about
the direction of the more than 1-year-old
talks, which are at a critical juncture.
Negotiators are rushing to try to meet a March

31 deadline for a framework agreement between


Iran and the U.S. and five
other world powers.
Im hearing less about
dismantlement and more
about the performance of
Irans nuclear program,

when you consider that
international inspectors report that Iran has
still not revealed its past bomb work.

Official: Afghan avalanches kill at least 124 people
PANJSHIR VALLEY, Afghanistan Avalanches caused by
a heavy winter snow killed at least 124 people in northeastern Afghanistan, an emergency official said Wednesday, as
rescuers clawed through debris with their hands to save
those buried beneath.
The avalanches buried homes across four northeast
provinces, killing those beneath, said Mohammad Aslam
Syas, the deputy director of the Afghanistan Natural
Disaster Management Authority. The province worst hit
appeared to be Panjshir province, about 100 kilometers (60
miles) northeast of the capital, Kabul, where the avalanches destroyed or damaged around 100 homes, Syas said.
The acting governor of Panjshir, Abdul Rahman Kabiri,
said rescuers used their bare hands and shovels in an effort to
reach survivors. Rescue teams had been dispatched to the
affected areas and casualties were expected to rise, Syas said.

Abducted Syrian Christians


moved to militant stronghold
By Zeina Karam
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIRUT Islamic State militants


have moved a large group of
Christians they abducted to one of
their strongholds as fighting raged on
Wednesday between the extremists and
Kurdish and Christian militiamen for
control of a chain of villages along a
strategic river in northeastern Syria,
activists and state-run media said.
The Khabur River in Hassakeh
province, which borders Turkey and
Iraq, has become the latest battleground in the fight against the Islamic
State group in Syria. It is predominantly Kurdish but also has populations of Arabs and predominantly

Christian Assyrians and Armenians.


In pre-dawn attacks, the IS on
Monday attacked communities nestled
along the river, seizing at least 70
people, including many women and
children. Thousands of others fled to
safer areas.
The fate of those kidnapped, almost
all of them Assyrian Christians,
remained unclear Wednesday, two days
after they were seized. Relatives of the
group searched frantically for word on
the fate of the loved ones, but none
came.
Its a tragedy ... It is true what they
say: history repeats itself, said
Younan Talia, a high ranking official
with the Assyrian Democratic
Organization who spoke to the

Associated Press from Hassakeh.


He was referring to the 1933 massacre by Iraqi government forces of
Assyrians in Simele, a town in northern Iraq, after which the community
fled to the Khabur region, and massacres against Armenian and Assyrian
Christians under the Ottoman empire.
State-run SANA news agency and the
Assyrian Network for Human Rights in
Syria said the hostages have been
moved to the Islamic State-controlled
city of Shaddadeh, south of the city of
Hassakeh. The United States and a
coalition of regional partners are conducting a campaign of airstrikes
against the group, and have on occasion struck Shaddadeh, a predominantly Arab town.

Irishman wounded by

Northern Ireland border town long known as a power base
for the outlawed IRA.
Sinn Fein lawmaker Conor Murphy says the man was trying to take down a poster on a pole outside his home when

Federal jury orders Apple to

SAN FRANCISCO Apple has been ordered to pay nearly $533 million by a federal jury that found Apples iTunes
music store uses software that infringes on patents held by
a Texas company.
An attorney for plaintiff Smartflash LLC praised the verdict. Apple immediately announced plans to appeal and said
the case shows the need for Congress to reform the U.S.
patent system.
The case involves three patents that Smartflash holds for
software used in storing data files and managing access
through an online payment system. The outcome will likely add fuel to a broader debate over the federal patent system
and complaints that its easily abused by companies that
make most of their revenue through patent lawsuits.
Smartflash makes no products, has no employees, creates no jobs, has no US presence and is exploiting our

The Dow Jones industrial average


notched its third record high close in a
row Wednesday, even as other market
indexes ended lower.
Trading was relatively subdued as
investors reviewed the latest corporate
earnings news. Utilities stocks were
among the biggest decliners. Energy
stocks rebounded as oil prices broke a
five-day slide and climbed back above
$50 a barrel.
Wall Street also kept an eye on
Federal Reserve Chief Janet Yellens
second appearance before Congress in
two days. Her remarks didnt generate
any major market-moving news. A day
earlier, Yellen suggested that the Fed is
not in a hurry to raise interest rates.
The market is just trying to figure
out whether the next move is up or
down, said David Lebovitz, global
market strategist at J.P. Morgan Asset
Management.
The Dow ended up 15.38 points, or
0.1
percent,
to
18,224.57.
McDonalds was the biggest gainer in
the 30-company index, climbing 3.9
percent.
The Standard & Poors 500 index
slipped 1.62 points, or 0.1 percent, to
2,113.86. The Nasdaq shed 1 point, or
0.02 percent, to 4,967.14. The three
indexes are all up for the year.
The Dow and S&P 500 closed at

record highs on Tuesday after investors


were encouraged Yellens remarks on
interest rates. Lower rates make borrowing easier and tend to be a plus for
financial markets.
The Fed has kept its benchmark rate
near zero since 2008. Most economists
anticipate that a rate increase is not
likely before June or even later this
year.
A key factor in that decision will be
inflation. Thats one reason investors
will be focused on the release of the latest consumer price index on Thursday.
That should provide a little bit of
insight on what the Feds next move
might be and when it may occur,
Lebovitz said.
The three indexes opened lower on
Wednesday, then veered between small
gains and losses through much of the
day. In the last hour of trading, the Dow
eked out a gain.
Hewlett-Packard and Boston Beer
slumped early. Both reported disappointing quarterly results late Tuesday.
Hewlett-Packard tumbled 9.9 percent,
while the brewer of Samuel Adams beer
sank 10.3 percent. Chesapeake Energy
and Lumber Liquidators also declined
after reporting weak earnings early
Wednesday. Chesapeake fell 9.6 percent, while the hardwood floors retailer
slid 26.4 percent.
Investors bid up shares in several
companies whose latest quarterly earnings fared better.

TJX, the parent company of T.J.


Maxx and Marshalls, rose 3.3 percent
after its profit beat analysts expectations. The company also said would
raise wages for its workers.
Benefitfocus vaulted 47.2 percent,
while specialty contracting services
company Dycom Industries surged 17
percent. Discount retailer Dollar Tree
rose 2.2 percent.
In all, half of the 10 sectors in the
S&P 500 moved lower. Utilities stocks
fell 1.6 percent and are now down 4 percent this year. Consumer discretionary
stocks notched the biggest gain. The
sector is up 5.6 percent this year.
The price of oil rose after the Energy
Department reported that diesel and
gasoline inventories fell more than
expected, indicating a pickup in
demand. Benchmark U.S. crude rose
$1.71 to close at $50.99 a barrel in
New York. Brent crude, a benchmark for
international oils used by many U.S.
refineries, rose $2.97 to close at

Lawsuit filed against Purina


claims food sickens, kills dogs
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO A dog owner


has filed a lawsuit against a pet food
company alleging that thousands of
dogs have been sickened or died from
eating a brand of the companys dry
dog food.
Pet owner Frank Lucido filed the suit
on Feb. 5 in U.S. District Court in the
Northern District of California against
Nestle Purina PetCare Company.
Lucido claims he fed his three dogs
Beneful kibble style dog food, and
within a short period of time, two were
sick and one was dead.
The suit alleges the food contains
propylene glycol, which it says is an
animal toxin used in automobile
antifreeze, and mycotoxins, a group of
toxins produced by fungus that occurs
in grains.
In the suit, Lucido alleges that in the
past four years, there have been more
than 3,000 complaints online about
dogs becoming ill or dying after eating Beneful, having shown consistent symptoms, including stomach
and related internal bleeding, liver

malfunction or failure, vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, weight loss,


seizures and kidney failure. The complaints about Beneful report symptoms that are consistent with mycotoxin poisoning, according to the
suit.
Purina issued a statement saying
there are no quality issues with
Beneful, and dog owners could continue feeding it to their dogs without
any concern.
Like other pet foods, Beneful is
occasionally the subject of social
media-driven misinformation, the
company said in its statement. Online postings often contain false,
unsupported and misleading allegations that cause undue concern and
confusion for our Beneful customers.
The Food and Drug Administration
has approved the use of propylene glycol as an additive in human food and
animal feed, and Purina screens its
grain to prevent mycotoxins from getting into its products, spokesman
Keith Schopp said.
The FDA has not issued any warn-

ings about Beneful kibble style dog


food. In a statement, the FDA said it
does not comment on pending litigation.
Jennifer Dooren, a spokeswoman,
declined to comment on whether the
FDA was investigating Beneful kibble style dog food.
The results of toxicology testing on
Lucidos English Bulldog, Dozer, who
died, are pending, according to the
lawsuit. The lawsuit says one of
Lucidos dogs that fell sick, a Labrador
named Remo, is undergoing medical
testing.
A call and email to Lucidos attorney,
Jeffrey Cereghino, were not immediately returned.
The suit asks the court to expand the
case to include other dog owners
whose dogs were sickened or died. It
asks for unspecified damages and restitution, although it says the claims
exceed $5 million.
In recent years, Beneful has faced
two lawsuits that were dismissed by
the courts, according to Purinas statement.

Strong reliability scores should help Buick brands rebirth


By The Krisher
and Dee-Ann Durbin
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT Buick, the brand that


once was the pace car for the drive to
the senior center, has made a comeback by appealing to buyers not yet
ready for retirement.
U.S. sales rose 11 percent in 2014.
In China, Buicks biggest market,
sales gained almost 14 percent.
This week, strong showings in two
influential quality surveys are bringing good publicity to a nameplate
that was inches from the grave when
its parent company, General Motors,
was in bankruptcy six years ago.
On Wednesday, Buick finished second to perennial winner Lexus in the

annual dependability rankings by


J.D. Power and Associates. A day earlier, it was the first U.S. brand to
crack the top 10 in Consumer Reports
magazines annual rankings, finishing seventh. The Buick Regal midsize car even bested the BMW 328i
for top sports sedan honors from the
magazine.
It is all part of a turnaround at Buick
led by some creative television ads,
updated cars and the almost perfectly
timed debut of the Buick Encore, a
new small SUV that hit showrooms
two years ago just as consumers were
abandoning cars in favor of highersitting vehicles.
Buick has been on J.D. Powers top
10 brand list for long-term reliability
every year for the past decade, even

winning top honors in 2007 and


2009. This year, the firm surveyed
original owners of 2012 models.
That helped Buick because all but one
of its 2012 models had been in production for at least a year, and older
models tend to have fewer problems
than new ones, said Dave Sargent,
J.D. Powers global automotive vice
president.
Also, Buick has older customers
than other brands, and they tend to
take better care of cars and complain
less than younger buyers, Sargent
said. All General Motors brands,
which share many components, have
seen reliability improvements for
seven straight years, he said.
Despite the gains, Buick has not
returned to its heyday.

Bay Areas Semien in the mix for As shortstop job


By Don Ketchum
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MESA, Ariz. In the last year, the


Oakland Athletics traded away two of their
top shortstop prospects, Addison Russell
and Daniel Robertson.
To ll the hole in their organization, the
As acquired Marcus Semien in a trade this
winter.
Now the kid from the Bay Area is set on
being in the opening-day lineup for his

hometown team.
The 24-year-old Semien was born in San
Francisco and played high school and college ball in Berkeley came to the As in a
trade that sent pitcher Jeff Samardzija to the
Chicago White Sox.
Semien, 6-foot-1, 195 pounds, is seen as
a gifted all-around athlete who is quick to
the ball on defense and has the potential for
some pop at the plate.
As manager Bob Melvin mentioned the
athleticism aspect after the teams rst full-

squad workout of the spring on Wednesday


at Fitch Park.
Semien was put through defensive drills
by ineld coach Mike Gallego, who also is
the teams third base coach.
Gags was a good glove man and he will
make a great teacher. He will be good for
(Semien), Melvin said.
Semien wont be alone in learning the
Oakland way. The three other projected
ineld starters third baseman Brett
Lawrie, second baseman Ben Zobrist and

rst baseman Ike Davis were with other


organizations last season.
It is very early in camp, and the job certainly hasnt been handed to Semien. Not
yet, anyway.
We are going to give him every opportunity, Melvin said. Now, you have to create your own reps (repetitions) once you are
given that opportunity. Our feeling is that
he will.
Semien isnt taking anything for granted.

An agonizing loss

no one ever willingly wants to be a

Turns out, I may have an all-star first

house broken.
He is a 85-pound couch potato for most

transforms from mild-mannered dog to a

the fastest dog at the park, there is no
canine who has more stamina. He is a

The Hillsdale boys soccer team was thisclose to winning its opening round Central
Coast Section Division III soccer match
against Scotts Valley Wednesday afternoon.
The Knights were clinging to a 1-0 lead
thanks to a spectacular Austin Mah header in
the first half and it appeared it would be
enough.
Turns out, the Knights needed to keep it
together for 10 more seconds. Scotts Valley
got the equalizer off a corner kick in secondhalf stoppage time and then added two more
in two, 10-minute periods of overtime to
record a 3-1 victory.
We didnt play as hard as we could until
the very end, Mah said. Everyone fell
apart after that goal.
Hillsdale (11-1-8 overall) which was
without four key players because of injuries
and eligibility issues used its speed and
pinpoint passing to fire off eight shots in
the first half, half of which were on goal. In
the 13th minute, Zoen Ebinger slammed a
free kick off the crossbar from 45 yards out.
Two minutes later, Mah made a long run
down the right sideline. He got to the end
line and somehow managed to loft a cross to
the front of the Scotts Valley goal, where it
just missed finding the side of the net just
inside the far left post. The ball fell to the
feet of Bryen Lau, who took a touch to create
some space, but when it opened up, his shot
sailed over the top of the goal.
The Knights came close again on another
free kick, this one in the 17th minute. Nico
Naar tried to catch the Falcons sleeping by
quickly taking the kick.
The Scotts Valley goalkeeper was on his
toes, however, pushing Naars shot over the
crossbar for a corner kick. On the ensuing
cross, Mah snapped a header on goal that
was saved.

Tennessee coaches suspended after teams tried to lose


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. Two


Tennessee girls basketball high school
coaches have been suspended for trying to
get their teams to lose a game in an attempt
to avoid the top-ranked squad and improve
their chances of advancing in the state tournament.
Rutherford County Director of Schools
Don Odom announced Wednesday that
Smyrnas Shawn Middleton and Riverdales
Cory Barnett wouldnt be permitted to coach
at their schools or at any other Rutherford
County Schools athletic program during the

2015-16 school year.


Odom said Smyrna principal Rick Powell
already had decided to remove Middleton as
coach.
In a statement, Odom also said the school
district apologizes to the Riverdale and
Smyrna High basketball players and parents for the lack of leadership exhibited by
the coaches. He also apologized to the citizens of Rutherford County because of the
embarrassment generated locally and
nationally for teams motivated to throw a
game.
Good athletic coaches possess skills
that maximize the players skills, strategize

winning game plans, instill self-discipline,


and impart the value of teamwork to reach a
common goal, Odom said. Players also
learn skills that build integrity and character, primarily by how their coach models
before them. In these last two areas, we
failed last Saturday evening.
Odom also said the two coaches wouldnt
be eligible for the coach stipend pay during
the 2015-16 year, which totals $8,393
each.
Smyrna and Riverdale were banned from
the playoffs Monday.
Tennessee Secondary School Athletic
Association executive director Bernard

Childress wrote that the teams made a


mockery of Saturdays game with intentional turnovers off various violations and
missed free throws. The games referee
reported he stopped play ordering the
coaches not to make a travesty of the game
with a Smyrna player about to shoot at the
wrong basket.
Smyrna (21-8) won the game 55-29
Saturday against Riverdale (22-8), a program that won its third state title in four
years in March 2013 with a 58th straight
win. The winner was on track to play
Tennessees defending Class AAA champion
Blackman (25-2).

Scots score early in each half, beat San Benito


By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Sometimes when things come too easily


to a soccer team, it might get away from its
game plan in an effort to put a team away
quickly.
The Carlmont girls soccer team experienced just such a dilemma as the Scots took
a 1-0 lead just 10 minutes into their match
with visiting San Benito Wednesday night
in the first round of the Central Coast
Section Division I playoffs.
The Scots spent most of the rest of the
half trying to force through the heart of the
Haybalers defense, only to be denied.
In the second half, the Scots stuck to the
game plan of knocking the ball around and
waiting until the opportunities presented
themselves. It resulted in two more goals as
the Scots advanced to the second round with
a 3-1 win over the Haybalers.
My whole theme this season is to have
patience and move the ball, move the ball
and then the gaps open up, said Carlmont
coach Tina Smith. At times, we showed

great patience and at other times we were


shoving it down their throats.
The Scots will face No. 4 Salinas (10-1-5)
in a quarterfinal match Saturday at a time and
place to be determined. Salinas downed No.
13 Fremont (11-8-1) 2-1 in overtime.
Carlmont (12-7-2) wasted little time in
jumping on San Benito (7-9-3). The Scots
controlled the game from the outset, putting
a lot of pressure on the Haybalers defense.
Just 10 minutes in, the Scots struck off a
corner kick. Rhea Subramanian sent the
kick into the middle of the San Benito
penalty box. The Haybalers goalkeeper initially got her hands on the ball but couldnt
secure it. The ball pinballed around in the
box before it squirted out to Soha Said, who
was stationed just outside the penalty box.
She stepped into the ball and fired a shot
through traffic and into left side of the net
for a 1-0 Carlmont lead.
The Scots spent most of the rest of the
half trying to attack right down the middle
to Said. Kayla Fong also had some strong
runs, but after giving up the goal, the
Haybalers seemed to settle down and held

Carlmont out of the net the rest of the half.


Despite not getting that second goal,
Smith was pleased with her teams play.
I was very happy with our possession,
Smith said. I dont think we could have
started the game any better.
Early in the second half, the Scots made it
2-0 to take some pressure off. After spending the first half looking to distribute,
Fong spent the second half looking to
score.
She managed just that three minutes into
the second period. Taking a pass in the middle of the field about 30 yards from goal,
Fong used some nifty footwork to beat a
pair of San Benito defenders and work her
way into the penalty box.
Suddenly, Fong was all alone with just the
goalkeeper to beat, who had no chance as
Fong calmly slotted her shot just inside the
far right post to give the Scots a two-goal
lead.
With about 12 minutes to play, Said iced
the match with her second goal of the night
again off a corner kick. Siena Riqatuso
sent the cross into the box where it
bounced. Said took the ball off the half volley and roofed it into the net to put the Scots
up 3-0.
Smith acknowledged her team has the
advantage with players like Said and Fong.
Its an awesome luxury to have, Smith
said. Who do you mark out of the game? I
think they (teams) try, they over-focus on
one and we have another forward over here.
San Benito came back four minutes later
with its lone goal of the game a perfect
strike from Chace Miguel from about 25
yards out.
Now that the first CCS win is out of the
way, the Scots are hoping to make a deep
run and possibly pick up their first CCS
championship since 2006.
This year, my team is really focused,
Smith said. They want this (CCS title) real-

Clark says MLB players Playoffs within reach


against radical changes for Cubs, owner says
By Janie McCauley

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Major league


players are against many of the radical
changes introduced during the Arizona Fall
League to speed up games.
Baseball players association head Tony
Clark is encouraging his membership to
make slight adjustments that will improve
the pace of games without completely altering the way they do their jobs.
A former All-Star rst baseman and the
rst player to head the union, Clark said
Wednesday on the rst stop of his spring
training tour that extreme methods arent
feasible at the sports highest level.
With this particular discussion, having
an opportunity to see if we can address some
concerns that some have, while creating
some new habits without jeopardizing the
integrity of the play on the eld, this was
the hope here, Clark said. With the batters box rule, with the in-between innings
timing, with the pitching change timing,
were simply hopeful that those adjustments have some affect on the length of the
game but do so without signicantly changing the way the guys play, prepare, do what
they need to do.
Players agreed to time limits for betweeninnings breaks and pitching changes, and a
requirement batters keep one foot in the box
in many instances. But the only penalties
will be warnings and nes, not balls and
strikes, and the nes wont start until May
1.
The biggest thing was they were trying
to explain the rules of the pace of play, just
clarifying whats going on with it, pitcher
and Giants player rep Matt Cain said after
Clark spoke with the team. He did a great
job of simplifying things.
Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz has
strong feelings about the new rules and
doesnt plan to alter his approach even if
it means he will be regularly ned. He steps
out of the box to try to gain a mental edge.
The rule requiring hitters to keep a foot in
the box contains many exceptions, including swinging at a pitch, getting forced out
by a pitch, calling time, faking a bunt, and
wild pitches and passed balls.
Well, I might run out of money. Period,
Ortiz said Wednesday. Im not going to

change my game. I dont care what they say.


... Ive got to take my time to think about
what theyre going to try to do against me.
... They put the rules together but they dont
talk to us as a hitter. ... Why dont you come
and ask questions rst and then we come to
an agreement?
The AFL experiment included a 20-second
clock between pitches, a limitation of
pitchers mound conferences involving
catchers and managers, and no-pitch intentional walks.
I think its great that they had a 16-game
experiment in the Arizona Fall League, but
that is not reective of a major league game
during the season, Clark said. Theyve
decided to implement any number of rules
that they want to implement in the minor
leagues, and thats ne, too. Unfortunately
we dont represent those players, but even
in the minor leagues its a different ballgame than it is in the major leagues, and I
think you would have any player, coach or
anybody whos been around the game for a
long time suggest that those games are different.
Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford said
another focus of the hour-long meeting was
gearing up for bargaining that will start
next year for a labor contract to replace the
current deal, which expires in December
2016. Clark insists there are plenty of
lawyers on staff and available to handle the
negotiations.
He hopes to build on the last bargaining
round of 2011, when 240 players participated in various stages. While players who
were part of the last work stoppage in 199495 are mostly long gone from the game,
Clark expects participation from active
players to be a key again.
Collectively, we are more connected
than most. We have a staff who are on the
front lines and experienced any number of
work stoppages, he said. We have players
who are on teams now that are aware of or
familiar with 2002, when although we didnt have a work stoppage there was a strike
deadline, the clock hit zero. ... I have
absolutely no concerns about the resolve of
our guys if we cant come to a place where a
fair and equitable deal can be made. Im
hopeful that is the case, but our guys will be
prepared to negotiate over any topic at any
time and be equipped to do so.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MESA, Ariz. Tom Ricketts says he


thinks the Chicago Cubs are set to take big
steps this year toward ending their centuryplus of failure.
Obviously, we all believe this years team
has what it takes to win the division and go to
the playoffs, the Cubs owner said
Wednesday at spring training. Now its
about getting on the field and getting it started.
Chicago hasnt won the World Series since
1908 and hasnt reach the playoffs since
2008. Ricketts called midseason trades such
as the one that sent pitchers Jeff Samardzia
and Jason Hammel to Oakland for top
prospect Addison Russell really the end of
the beginning for us.
Were looking forward to winning, he
said. We feel this is the year we start to show
results.
Ricketts said the reconstructed bleachers at
Wrigley Field should be ready to open by
May 11, five weeks after the season opener. A
federal judge last week denied a request from
rooftop clubs overlooking the ballpark to
temporarily halt installation of signs they
say will block their view and violate a contract they have with the team.
He said the teams inability to sell bleacher
tickets in April is not a big financial hit for
us, to be honest, adding: April in the
bleachers is kind of tough sometimes.
Chicago is looking to a new beginning
under manager Joe Maddon, who was hired
from Tampa Bay. Ricketts denied the Cubs
had tampered with Maddon, who used a provision in his contract to terminate his deal with
the Rays.

From everything I know, we did nothing


wrong, Ricketts said.
Ricketts spoke to Cubs players Wednesday.
I want to make sure they are professional
off the field, he said. I want them to treat our
fans like gold. We have the best fans in baseball. And if they want to do anything in the
community, let us help them. A lot of guys
want to do charity things but dont have the
time or the help.
The Ricketts family bought the Cubs,
Wrigley Field and related properties from the
Tribune Co. in 2009 for $845 million and
hired Theo Epstein from the Boston Red Sox
in October 2011 to become Chicagos president of baseball operations. The Cubs have
not had a winning season since 2009 and
home attendance has been about 2.65 million
in each of the last two seasons, Chicagos
lowest totals since 1998.
Ricketts praised Cubs fans for enduring
tough seasons.
Walking around the ballpark is encouraging. Fans are almost exclusively supportive, he said. They want to see everything
done the right way. They want to get to the
World Series. Were not going to do that by
making short-term decisions. Frankly, the
fans have helped me get through the bad
years, as opposed to the other way around.
Ricketts said Epstein has done an incredible job of turning the organization around.
The fact is a few years ago we didnt have
much depth in the system. We didnt have a
lot of hope to win at the major league level.
Chicago is considering options for future
local broadcast rights, which could increase
revenue. Ricketts said for now, well have
the flexibility to do whatever Theo needs to
do in the middle of the season.

Sports brief
Greek soccer league
again suspended over violence
ATHENS, Greece Greeces top soccer
league has been suspended for a third time
this season because of continued violence at
matches.
Stavros Kontonis, the deputy minister for
sport in Greeces new left-wing government, said Wednesday that the decision
would be reviewed next week, but that
games would again be called off if clubs
failed to respond to government demands
for improved security.
The action followed weekend violence at a
league match between rivals Olympiakos
and Panathinaikos, and a brawl between
officials of the two clubs on Tuesday at a
board meeting of league organizers.
This violence is an insult to all of us and

ATHLETICS

The best thing for me was getting in here
early, meeting my teammates and the staff,
he said.
He is excited that his family will be able
to see him play on a regular basis.
He already has worked a lot with Zobrist
around second base so they can establish a
rhythm.
Im trying to work on every part of the
game, the angles, jumps and throws,
Semien said.
He also loves hitting, and said he was fortunate to be able to use some of the facilities
over the winter at the University of
California-Berkley. Melvin also played at
Cal, as did another new Oakland player:
inelder-outelder Mark Canha.
Semien, who has played 85 major league
games and has hit eight home runs, likes to
think of himself as a complete hitter. But
the allure of the home run is there.

our national heritage, Kontonis said after


meeting Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.
When it comes to addressing the issue of
violence in football, we will be unrelenting.
Kontonis previously told Tsipras in televised remarks that drastic measures were
required to pressure the 18 clubs in the top
league to introduce improved security,
including smart-card ticketing and security
camera systems at matches. League organizers had committed to introducing such measures several years ago.
The Greek league has already been suspended twice this season because of violence, and the government said it had taken
Wednesdays decision after consulting with
top football officials and a police department that deals with major crimes.
Olympiakos currently leads the league
with 58 points from 25 matches, three clear
of second-place Panathinaikos.
Yeah, I can hit for a little bit of power,
but you cant force it. You have to let it
come to you, he said. I also want to continue to build up my strength.
He was in two previous spring camps with
the White Sox, who drafted him in the sixth
round in 2011, but this is a whole new deal.
Ive never been traded, never been in this
situation, he said. I am going out and
playing as hard as I can. I am very hungry. I
know I can help this team win.
NOTES: Melvin addressed the team prior
to the workout and had a few players speak.
Catcher Stephen Vogt helped interpret some
of the new rules with humor reminiscent of
late comedian Chris Farley, Melvin said.
Owner Lew Wolff was there and had his own
walk-up song, Louie, Louie (not the
oldies version by the Kingsmen). . . .
Melvin gave kudos to his new bench coach,
Mike Aldrete, who organized the workout.
That Stanford education paid off, Melvin
said with a mischievous smile. ... The team
opens Cactus League play at HoHoKam
Stadium against the Giants on March 3, and
will play intrasquad games the two days
before that.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

McIlroy looking to keep


momentum to the Masters
By Doug Ferguson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. Fans


stood three-deep and formed a corridor from the
18th green at PGA National as they tried to get
an autograph, a picture or even a close look at
Rory McIlroy. Moments later, another group
of fans pressed against him with souvenir flags
to sign as McIlroy left a
conference room.
The attention comes
with being the No. 1 player in golf, the apparent heir
to Tiger Woods. McIlroy is
used to this by now. He has
been the best player in the
world since August, filling
the void of a sport looking
Rory McIlroy for a dominant figure.
This is the position I
want to be in, McIlroy said Wednesday. And I
want to be in it as long as I can.
Its only going to get more chaotic.
McIlroy competes on American soil for the
first time in five months when the Honda
Classic begins on Thursday. The palm trees and
tropical warmth of south Florida are the sure
signs that the Masters is around the corner.
McIlroy, who blew a four-shot lead in the final
round at Augusta National in 2011, goes there
with a chance to become only the sixth player
to capture the career Grand Slam.
Like other players, the 25-year-old will venture up to Augusta to practice in the coming
month. The real preparation is to play good
golf, and to allow that confidence to become
momentum that he can carry to the first major
of the year.
People talk about momentum and talk about
sort of riding it, but I think momentum and
confidence are two very similar things in
golf, McIlroy said. If youre confident and
youve had good performances, that confidence
seems to carry on. And if youre happy with
how practice goes, then youre obviously
going to be confident going into tournaments.
So thats sort of how Im feeling right now. And
try to keep that feeling for as long as I can.
It seems like its been a long time already.
McIlroy still isnt anywhere near the roll
Woods enjoyed during his peak years. Going
into the 2000 Masters, for example, Woods
won 11 times in 19 starts and only twice finished out of the top 10. No one was close to
him.
In his last 12 starts worldwide dating to the
British Open, McIlroy has four victories

(including back-to-back majors and a World


Golf Championship), four runner-up finishes
and has finished out of the top 10 two times.
In his last six tournaments, he has finished
no worse than second place in all but one tournament, the Australian Open. So yes, hes
going along quite nicely.
The obstacle at the Honda Classic might be
rust.
McIlroy hasnt played since winning the
Dubai Desert Classic on Feb. 1. He got past one
potential distraction when he settled a court
case involving his former management company. He has been home in south Florida the last
three weeks, practicing and playing and trying
to stay on this roll during an important part of
the season.
McIlroy won the Honda Classic in 2012, the
first time he rose to No. 1 in the world. A year
ago, he was poised to win again until he stumbled on the back nine at PGA National, only to
hit 5-wood into 10 feet on the final hole for a
two-putt birdie to get into a four-man playoff.
Russell Henley won on the first extra hole.
McIlroy didnt really get going until a few
months later, but hes been tough to beat ever
since.
Hes the best player in the world, Rickie
Fowler said. And when hes driving the ball
well, thats when hes deadliest. So he did a
good job of putting himself in play last year
and obviously hits longer than a lot of guys,
too.
Woods isnt around. He said two weeks ago
he wouldnt return to competition until his
game was in tournament shape. So far, thats
just one tournament the Honda Classic
though the attention on the absence of Woods
is sure to ratchet up if he misses Bay Hill.
McIlroy is mixing up his schedule slightly
this year. Hell be at the WGC event next week
at Doral and then play the Arnold Palmer
Invitational at Bay Hill for the first time, making it likely he will have two weeks off for
Augusta.
The Masters, at the moment, is not on his
mind.
I feel like Ive got a nice schedule going
into Augusta, McIlroy said. Im not playing
too much, but Im playing just enough that I
should be as sharp as possible going in there. I
havent thought about it. What I really thought
about over the past couple of weeks is getting
ready for these events coming up, and trying to
play as well as I possibly can in those. So that
gives me a little confidence going into a little
break to prepare as well as I can for Augusta.

Latest injury to Rose


hits the Bulls hard
By Andrew Seligman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO The news that


Derrick Rose will have knee surgery again hit the Chicago Bulls
and their fans hard and left them in
a familiar spot trying to get by
without their star point guard.
The torn meniscus in his right
knee was announced Tuesday
night, another tough twist for a
franchise, a star, his sponsors and
a fanbase that thought the Bulls
were entering another golden era
just a few years ago, with the
Chicago product leading the renaissance.
Instead, hes having surgery on
his right knee for the second
straight year on the heels of a
season he missed entirely following a torn left ACL.
Its so unfair, Bulls coach Tom
Thibodeau said. The guys been
through so much. Any time you
have surgery, its tough. This will
hopefully be much, much shorter
than the other one. But the big
thing is our concern for him first
as a person.
Roses rise from growing up in a
tough Chicago neighborhood to
stardom with his hometown team
is well-documented. He has a maximum contract with the Bulls and a
huge marketing deal with Adidas.
But in some ways, this era is
feeling like a big tease for the
Bulls and their fans.
Instead of celebrating a championship for the first time since the
Michael Jordan-Scottie Pippen
era, they have suffered through
close calls and long waits while
Rose recovers.
It wasnt what the Bulls envisioned after taking him with the
first pick in the 2008 draft. He
went from Rookie of the Year to
All-Star to MVP in his first three
seasons, becoming the youngest
player to win that award in 2011
while leading Chicago to 62 wins
and the Eastern Conference finals.
But the feel-good story took a
drastic turn the following season
when Rose crumpled to the court

with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the playoff
opener. The top-seeded Bulls
bowed out in the first round
against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Rose sat out the 2012-13 season, and his long-awaited comeback last season ended at 10
games.
Im still shocked, Kirk
Hinrich said. I didnt have any
idea he had an injury like that
(Tuesday) at practice. I just feel for
him. You cant imagine what hes
gone through these last three
years. Just when it seems like he
was hitting his stride and playing
great and it kind of felt like he had
put it behind him, for this to happen is just devastating.
Thibodeau said Wednesday its
not clear when the injury happened or when team physician Dr.
Brian Cole will perform the surgery. The coach wasnt sure how
long Rose will be out, either.
If he misses the remainder of the
year, it would be his third seasonending knee surgery.
Heartbreaking, in a way,
because of how much hes been
through for the last couple of
years, Pau Gasol said. Difficult
to deal with. We feel for him.
Thibodeau said the Bulls knew
another tear was possible. The
question is how Rose proceeds
from here.
Dr. Alexis Colvin, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports
medicine at the Icahn School of
Medicine at New Yorks Mount
Sinai Hospital, said he could have
the torn cartilage reattached or
removed.
She said a reattachment the
procedure he had last year is the
better long-term option. But he
would miss the rest of the season.
Removing the torn cartilage would
keep him out at least six weeks,
meaning a return would be possible. The problem is it increases
the risk of arthritis.
Colvin, who has not examined
Rose, is not ruling out the possibility of him playing at a high
level again.

Sports brief
Los Angeles-area city celebrates
stadium deal, awaits NFL
INGLEWOOD The Inglewood City
Council unanimously approved a $2 billion
stadium plan backed by St. Louis Rams
owner Stan Kroenke that clears a path for the
NFL to return to the Los Angeles area for the
first time in two decades.
But the approval that really matters the
NFLs blessing for a team to move into the
nations second-largest media market is a
major work in progress. And theres still no
certainty Kroenke will move the team from
St. Louis, where city officials are working to
come up with a suitable stadium deal.
Despite the remaining hurdles, Tuesdays
5-0 council vote prompted Mayor James T.
Butts to declare its time to celebrate. The
hours of public comments that preceded the
vote, and the cheers that followed it, showed
similar enthusiasm.
Only a small handful of dissenters spoke.
Kroenke is part of the Hollywood Park
Land Co. development group that is promoting the project just south of Los Angeles.

right. I swear, he makes the play at least 90
percent of the time.
Ive even seen him make the spectacular
play. Yesterday, he caught a big bounce
over his shoulder. Several months ago, I
threw a grounder to his left that he initially
overran only to see him swing his body
sideways to knock the ball down. Im talking highlight-reel plays.
He would be a natural shortstop, but he
has no way to throw the ball to first but

THE DAILY JOURNAL

It was a sign of things to come, however,


as Ebinger and Mah hooked up for one of the
most brilliant combinations youll ever see
in the 27th minute.
Hillsdale was awarded a free kick near midfield. Ebinger stepped up and lofted a long
cross into the middle of the Scotts Valley
penalty box. With a defender on his shoulder, Mah came streaking in, beat the goalkeeper to the ball and used a flying, diving
header to deposit the ball into the left corner
of the net to put Hillsdale up 1-0.
The balls that were being crossed in were
perfect, Mah said.
In the second half, the Knights slowed
down. The speed and precision they displayed in the first 40 minutes were missing
over the final 40 as Scotts Valley methodically kept up its attack.
The toll became evident as first Lau and
then Mah were battling legs cramps late in
the second half. The Falcons, which had
been outshot 8-3 in the first half, turned the

tables in the second, as they held a 6-2


advantage.
None of the Falcons shots, however,
were particularly dangerous and Hillsdale
goalkeeper Michael Golden made all the
saves rountinely.
As the final minutes were ticking down,
however, the Knights were still going on
the attack instead of trying to milk the
clock. Tenor Franco, a late-game substitute,
had a couple of good looks, but he could not
convert.
The final few minutes must have felt like
hours for Hillsdale and the Knights were
moments away from advancing to the second round when disaster struck.
The Falcons earned a corner kick that Cole
North sent into the penalty box. Spencer
Smith was stationed at the far right post and
nodded the ball on frame. Golden scrambled
backward and got a hand on the ball, but
instead of pushing it over the top of the
goal, it kept heading toward the net.
Ultimately the ball was headed into the
net by a Hillsdale defender making a lastditch effort to clear it away, but the ball
found twine for the equalizer.
Hillsdale had a couple of chances in the
first 10-minute overtime period, but it was

the Falcons who capitalized. They took the


lead for good in the 85th minute when Noah
Bird found the ball at his feet behind the
Hillsdale defensive line. Bird calmly
chipped the ball over a charging Golden to
put the Falcons up 2-1.
In the second overtime period, Golden
was moved to striker and he nearly got the
equalizer with a flying, karate-style kick off
a corner cross, but his shot was saved.
Scotts Valley iced the game moments later
on a strike from Eric Beraut.
Since I didnt have my whole team, Im
happy (with the way Hillsdale played), said
Hillsdale coach Andy Hodzic. With my
complete team we could do it. [Four] is
too many good players to lose [for] CCS.
In other CCS soccer action, it was a rough
first round for the Peninsula Athletic
Leagues two Division I entrants, No. 9
Sequoia and No. 11 Carlmont. Sequoia (7-75) was routed by No. 8 Alvarez (15-2-4), 50. Carlmont (8-11-2) fared just as poorly,
falling 5-0 to No. 6 Homestead.
In Division III games, No. 10 Kings
Academy knocked off No. 7 South City (8-94) 3-1, while No. 5 Burlingame (11-7-3)
advanced to the quarterfinals with a 3-1 win
over KIPP.

Id bet hed make it a close race to the bag


at first. Since he has no way to wing it
across the diamond, I figure plant him at
first. He easily can take all the throws from
literally anywhere on the field. You get any
throw near his giant maw and its as good
as caught. He drops balls about as frequently as a high-level first baseman.
Even balls in the dirt are no problem. He
picks balls off the short hop like a pro.
High chops or balls down the line? No
problem. He fields his position well. And
forget about bunting against Rolo. Not
only will he field the ball, hed probably
beat the runner to first.
Alas. Just as there is no crying in baseball, there are no dogs allowed in the game

either. It strictly a novelty act that certainly impresses the other dog owners at the
park.
But Peanuts Snoopy is a household name
and he was probably the best canine ball
player of all time. Wonder what kind of
pointers he could give Rolo?
***
The Serra basketball team, which finished as co-champions of the West
Catholic Athletic League and is the No. 2
seed in the Open Division, had six players
named to the various all-WCAL squads
the most of any team in the league.
Senior center Trevor Brown and senior
guard Jimmy Wohrer were both named to
the first team. Junior forward Jake

Killingsworth was named to the second


team, while senior guard Paul Smoot, junior guard Jeremiah Testa and senior point
guard Frank Lemos were all named honorable mention.
St. Francis, which finished in a firstplace tie with Serra, placed five players on
the three teams.
Notre Dame-Belmonts Megan Smith and
Emma Pastrorino, a pair of senior guards,
were honorable mention on the WCAL
girls side.

Batten down the hatches. Its that time of


year when boxelder bugs are snooping
around looking for a home. Your home and
mine, that is.
You know these bugs. They are about a
half-inch long and charcoal gray, with three
red stripes on their thorax and red veins on
their wings. Viewed objectively, they might
be pretty as individuals or clustered on the
south wall of your home. But viewed subjectively? Yuck.
Boxelder bugs are true bugs. That is,
they are in the insect order known as
Hemiptera, commonly known as true bugs,
a group to which flies, bees, mosquitoes and
aphids do not belong. Some identifying
characteristics of true bugs are two sets of
wings, the rear ones shorter than the front
ones, wings at rest held flat on their backs,
sucking mouthparts and a beak at the front
of the head.
Another characteristic of many true bugs
is their scent, which is bad. As a gardener
you may have experienced this scent from
another true bug, the squash bug. Stink bugs
also are true bugs. Boxelder bugs are actually among the scentless true bugs.

ALL THEY WANT IS SOMEWHERE COZY


In their search for a cozy, dry spot in
which to spend the wet seasons, boxelder
females will sneak into cracks in a homes
foundation and around windows and doors,
even gaps beneath siding. From there, some
might accidentally find their way inside.
During spring, the females will be out and

about, eager to lay eggs. The eggs hatch


into bright red nymphs who resemble their
mothers, except they have small or no
wings. The nymphs go through a series of
molts to reach adult size, each time shedding
their old, undersize skeletons, climaxing in
the emergence of the fully developed adult in
July. Given enough time, the cycle from egg
to adult might be completed again before
winter sets in.

NO THREAT TO PLANTS
While the insects are growing, they are,
of course, eating, and their food of choice is
their namesake, boxelder. The tree, like the
insect, is ubiquitous over much of the country.
The bugs will eat boxelder flowers, fruit,
leaves and small twigs. They actually do little harm to boxelder trees, which many people consider little more than weeds weakwooded trees with muddy yellow leaves in
autumn.
If pressed by hunger, the bugs also will Boxelder bugs also do little harm if they get in your house. They might take an occasional
feed on ash trees, other maple species (box- taste of some houseplant, but they dont eat clothing or food.
elder is a species of maple) and fruit trees.
Boxelder bugs also do little harm if they
get in your house. They might take an occasional taste of some houseplant, but they
dont eat clothing or food.
The worst that can be said of them is
theyre a nuisance, perhaps enough so to
warrant some human intervention. This
does not mean dousing them with pesticide,
although oil, insecticidal soap, and
pyrethrum or rotenone are allegedly up to
the task. Within walls, silica aerogels, such
as Drione, kill the bugs by absorbing their
waxy coating and causing dehydration.

Bright ideas for outdoor furniture


By Kim Cook
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Earthy hues that blend into the landscape


tend to dominate the outdoor furniture market. Understated woods, metals and cushions
are easy-to-incorporate neutral elements.
But outdoor spaces also offer the chance to
be more adventurous than we are inclined to
be indoors.
Maybe bolder balconies and peppier
patios on your redecorating radar?
Vibrant color has dominated the home furnishings arena since last fall, and after an
unusually cold winter, the times ripe for
bright color to become a focus for our outdoor spaces. Color is a great energizer,
says Jackie Hirchhault, marketing vice president for the American Home Furnishings
Alliance, based in High Point, North
Carolina.
Aimee Beatty, in-house stylist at Pier 1,
says lively outdoor pieces give people a way
to make a statement: Incorporating pops of
color with furniture and accessories adds personality and flare.

front of a Los Angeles housing development.
Like earlier legislation, Atkins proposal

She suggests adding a colorful bench to the


patio to coordinate with a more traditional or
neutral dining set. One new piece is a simple, budget-friendly way to make a big
impact, she says.
Brightly colored furniture is also a quick
way to punch up a small space, she adds. A
bistro table and chairs in playful hues sets
the stage, and you dont need much more than
a few additional pieces to create an inviting
space, even if its a tiny terrace.
Pier 1s Paris-inspired Neely Bistro Set
comes in red or peacock blue rust-resistant
cast aluminum. Frontgates powder-coated
aluminum side and bar chairs in fresh colors
like aqua and melon come in whimsical
designs like curlicues and floral motifs.
The Rock Point acacia wood bench can be
had in red, marine blue or dandelion yellow,
and has the added benefit of being foldable
for off-season storage. Synthetic rattan
chairs are weather resistant and come in an
array of clean, crisp brights like ocean, purple, orange and yellow. (www.pier1.com)
Z Galleries Madison garden stool comes
in gold for a touch of metallic flair. Youll

also find the Mimosa lantern, featuring a filigreed Moroccan motif in mandarin, white,
lemon and aquamarine. (www.zgallerie.com)
A patio umbrella is a quick and inexpensive style changer. Start the party by setting
up Hayneedles shaggy acrylic Palapa
umbrella, a 6-foot-wide hula skirt on a pole
with thatched strips of acrylic in lime,
whiskey, raspberry pink or lemon yellow.

Walmarts got a well-priced basic market
umbrella that can be had in a fresh sunny
orange, deep green or canary yellow.

Usable as either planters or beverage
receptacles, LED-embedded resin GardenGlo
containers provide glowing illumination in

Consider adding a few glowing orbs to the

garden, pool, pathway or anywhere youd


fancy ambient light. A remote control lets
you run through a variety of soft colors or
switch to just white. Theyll last eight
hours on one battery charge. (www.frontgate.com)

colors that can be hung from trees, deck

Outdoor polypropylene rugs add color and
give outdoor spaces a more finished, roomlike look. Horchows Geometric Twist collection puts a crisp white graphic on a tangerine, lime or navy background for preppy
punch, while Dash & Alberts indoor/outdoor
rugs feature East Asian graphic motifs,
chevrons and sailing stripes. (www.horchow.com)

adds a $75 fee onto deeds and other real


estate transaction documents recorded when
businesses buy property and residents refinance their homes. Home buyers would not
be charged.
The fee could raise between $300 million
to $750 million a year, according to a 2013
state estimate.
Republicans have voted against similar

proposals, and Democrats need their support order to meet the Legislatures twothirds threshold to impose fees. Assembly
Minority Leader Kristin Olsen said in a
statement she would prefer policies that
make building homes easier and cheaper.
Real estate agents successfully opposed
similar legislation last year. Alex Creel, a
lobbyist for California Association of
Realtors, said funding for affordable housing should come from a broader source than
people recording real estate documents.
Atkins also wants to add $300 million in
tax credits for developers who offer lowincome housing.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said the

lack of affordable housing is undermining


the quality of life in California. He said its
harder for cities to offer housing because of
declining federal funding, increased demand
from the recession, and the loss of redevelopment agencies that collected about $1
billion for affordable housing before they
were shuttered.
All local governments feel the squeeze,
Garcetti said.
Atkins has said affordable housing is a
top personal priority, reflecting her modest
upbringing in Appalachia. Her wife is a consultant to businesses and nonprofits on
development issues, including affordable
housing.

Latin American
style comes home
By Kim Cook
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The exuberant colors, textures and patterns of Latin America


crafts are injecting an easy, comfortable and fun aesthetic into
home decor.
The look includes textured rugs, throws that evoke serape
motifs and furniture with an authentically hand-turned appearance.
House & Home magazine recently featured designer Heidi
Merricks Los Angeles home, with cowhide rugs, Bolivian
frasada blankets used as daybed throws, and spicy hues like
orange, marine blue and pink.
Ralph Lauren Homes La Hacienda fabric collection includes
traditional florals and graphic woven prints in earthy reds and
turquoise with punches of black, white and sunbaked brights.
Its not all about the fiesta, however. Mexican Modern is a
look characterized by contemporary furnishings and quiet
color, with one or two artisan pieces as counterpoints.
New Yorker Katherine Ponte works with indigenous
Brazilian artisans to bring sustainably produced traditional
crafts to a wider market through her e-shop, Ecostasy. Im
focused on the aesthetics as well as the cultural and environmental context of each piece, she says.
She offers bowls made by hand-tying banana fiber and recycled paper. Tropical vines and herbs are fashioned into trays
by the people of the Mamiraua Reserve, in the Amazon rainforest. Slabs of ipe and pequia, two South American hardwoods, are transformed into organic coffee tables.
(www.ecostasy.com)
Novicas fair-trade craft e-shop features pieces found at local
markets throughout Latin America (and in developing countries worldwide). The site not only offers artisans a platform
to sell their waves; it also provides marketing and technical
support. The craftspeople control the creative, production and
pricing aspects, Novica says.
Finding a charming and beautifully carved cedar statue at a
Lima, Peru, market, for example, Novicas co-founders,
Roberto Milk and Mina Olivera, searched the countryside for
the craftsman. Johnny Chambas little Ekeko, or good luck
token, is now on the site.

council.
Going forward, the tax is expected to
increase 4.5 percent annually.
Stronger auto sales have also
increased the citys sales tax revenue
to $22 million, up more than $1 million than projected when the council
adopted the current budget last year,
according to the citys budget.
Ramberg cautioned, however, that
the city could lose dealerships in the
future due to real estate demands.
Auto sales are the first to go with a
recession, she told the council.
Hotel taxes also increased this year
by 7 percent to about $5.6 million due
to higher occupancy rates, Ramberg
said.

million Americans have a rare disease,
which is defined as a condition shared
by less than 200,000 people.
Beas father spent seven years of his
life, with the help of doctors at Johns
Hopkins University, devoted to finding the cause of her condition which
causes her eyes to be spaced wider than
usual and her leg muscles weak. It also
makes her unable to really gain
weight.
Her fathers work led to the discovery of a gene mutation in her DNA that
no one else in the world has, at least
not yet.
She wears special shoes and leg
braces to walk but it doesnt stop her
from playing her favorite sport basketball.

She wrote checks to herself in the

paying her cellphone bill, according
to prosecutors.

The tax could increase going forward


as the One Marina Hotel comes online
on Bair Island Road and other hotels
possibly raise their rates, she said.
The councils strategic priorities
center around parking capacity and
management, particularly downtown.
Councilwoman Rosanne Foust questioned whether the city has added
enough parking downtown in light of
all the new developments under construction.
She was told the number of new parking spaces added to the area has been
significant.
Councilman John Seybert emphasized the importance of updating the
technology for parking meters downtown as Mayor Jeff Gee cautioned that
its not as simple as just changing a
meter.
The city does not have the necessary
infrastructure to implement smartphone or credit card payments on a

broader scale, Gee said.


Councilwoman Alicia Aguirre said it
was Redwood City that broke the
ground locally eight years ago when it
added technology to its parking program.
But Seybert said the technology is
outdated.
No one uses an 8-year-old computer, he said.
A new initiative proposed by Foust
will be to have a Seniors Day once a
week in downtown that would include
shuttle service and other services
catered toward the citys older residents.
The council is expected to hold a
budget study session June 8 and finalize the fiscal year 2015-16 budget June
22.

Shes a tomboy who also likes to


play the violin and ride scooter.
Her name is Bea and she has
Rienhoff Syndrome.
There are 7 billion people in the
world so there is a chance someone
else has it, Hugh said.
Bea may be one in 7 billion but,
considering the low number of individuals in the world who are doctors and
geneticists, the odds that she would be
born to someone with her fathers set
of skills are greater than one in 350
trillion.
There is likely no other family in the
world who share this unique relationship.
Although she lives life like most
other girls her age, her condition can
lead to its own unique experiences such
as meeting President Obama.
Obama invited the family to the
White House as part of his precision
medicine initiative he announced during his State of the Union address.

Hughs work in identifying the variant responsible for his daughters condition has led to research using precision medicine to further study genetic
variation and Rienhoff Syndrome.
Scientists at the University of
Arizona are now studying mice with
Beas genetic makeup.
Were not looking for a cure, Hugh
said. We just want to understand how
the gene works and get a deeper understanding of what might happen.
The condition does not appear to be
degenerative, he said, but the longterm effects of Rienhoff Syndrome
remain an unknown.

clothing at Target, gasoline, cosmetics and groceries, according to prosecutors.


Evans had fallen into financial difficulty leading up to arrest and had
maxed out her own credit cards. The
DSMAs board became suspicious of
Evans, 41, when she submitted a fraudulent salary survey during her annual
review, according to prosecutors.
Evans, of Burlingame, headed the
downtown group for two years before
abruptly departing in July.
She had been largely praised by city
officials for her work with the associa-

tion before the theft allegations.


Evans is a mother of two and served
on the Presidents Council at Skyline
College until last year. Before joining
the DSMA, Evans was the chief executive officer at the San Bruno Chamber
of Commerce.
The DSMA, which conducts San
Mateos annual wine walk and other
events, has yet to hire a new executive
director.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO
ADMINISTER ESTATE OF
NED CHAPIN
Case Number: 125406
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may
otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: Ned Chapin. A Petition
for Probate has been filed by Elaine Chapin in the Superior Court of California,
County of San Mateo. The Petition for
Probate requests that Elaine Chapin be
appointed as personal representative to
administer the estate of the decedent.
The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent
Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain
very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to
give notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to
the proposed action.) The independent
administration authority will be granted
unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the
authority.
A hearing on the petition will be held in
this court as follows: Mar 27, 2015 at
9:00 a.m., Dept. 28, Superior Court of
California, County of San Mateo, 400
County Center, Redwood City, CA
94063.
If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing
and state your objections or file written
objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your
claim with the court and mail a copy to
the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either (1) four
months from the date of first issuance of
letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the
California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days
from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section
9052 of the California Probate Code.
Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.
You may examine the file kept by the
court. If you are a person interested in
the estate, you may file with the court a
Request for Special Notice (form DE154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate Code
section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.
