School advocates support new parcel tax


Opponents argue voters should shoot down measure supporting San Carlos schools
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Advocates for San Carlos schools claim a


parcel tax is necessary to retain and attract
top-notch educators, while opponents question whether the district deserves additional
revenue from residents, according to arguments filed with the county elections
office.

Voters in the San Carlos Elementary


School District will be asked to pass
Measure P, a $246 parcel tax to support
schools in a mail-only ballot election,
which will be sent out April 6. The deadline
to vote is May 5.
School supporters and tax opponents are
now duking it out in documents filed with
the office of Chief Elections Officer Mark
Church, in an attempt to influence voters

position on the ballot measure.


Its a good thing that voter-approved,
local school funding has allowed us to
attract and retain great teachers in San
Carlos schools, wrote tax supporters in
the document. They provide local students
a terrific education, and we need them to
stay in San Carlos to help our students excel
in the years to come.
San Carlos Councilman Bob Grassilli;

Sam Herzberg, Greater East San Carlos


Board member; Jennifer Webb, former president of the San Carlos Education
Foundation; former San Carlos mayor Tom
Davids; and Paula Ebejer-Moffat, owner of

When Rachel Richenbach began


stacking cakes on her bookshelf
because she had nowhere else to put
them, she decided it was about time to
take her hobby more seriously.
The 29-year-old Burlingame native
had been baking cakes for her friends
and family, sometimes as many as 10
in a weekend, and stashing them anywhere she could find space in her house
including throughout the kitchen,
dining table and wherever else they
could fit.
So she turned her passion into a profession, which was the inspiration to

while another remains offline due to labor unrest.
Average retail gas prices in the state have surged 25 cents
a gallon in less than a week, from $2.98 per gallon for regular on Monday to $3.23 per gallon on Friday. That caps a
run that saw the price of regular unleaded go up 60 cents per
gallon since Jan. 30 as refineries prepare to shift to a summer blend of fuels.
In some areas of Southern California, gas station owners

County resident with measles may have


exposed diners at Berkeley restaurant
BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

Patrons of La Mediterranee restaurant in


Berkeley may have been exposed to measles
last Friday evening, Berkeley health officials said.
A San Mateo County resident who had
measles visited the restaurant at 2936
College Ave. at about 6:45 p.m. and stayed
until about 8 p.m.
The same day a San Mateo resident with
measles rode a Richmond-bound BART train
from Millbrae to San Franciscos Civic
Center station. The person arrived in San
Francisco at about 5 p.m.
Health officials havent said whether the
person who rode BART and the person who
dined in Berkeley are the same person.
Measles is a highly infectious, airborne
virus that can stay in the air for up to two
hours, according to health officials. Patrons
of the La Mediterranee who were at the
restaurant until 10 p.m. could get the disease.

Thieves crash car through

Thieves drove a car through a high-end
electronics store in the latest crash-andgrab heist in the San Francisco Bay Area.
San Francisco police say the crime

California Street, causing $100,000 in damage to building. Police did not say what, if
anything, was stolen.
Police are reviewing video surveillance
footage of the burglary. No arrests have

People who have been vaccinated have


only a slight risk of infection.
People who visited La Mediterranee
between 6:45 p.m. and 10 p.m. should
watch for symptoms until March 13, health
officials said. Symptoms can develop
between seven and 21 days after exposure.
Symptoms include high fever, red and
watery eyes and a rash that appears first on
the head and face and can spread to most of
the body.
People who develop symptoms should get
in touch with their health provider for
advice and help. Unvaccinated infants,
pregnant women and people with impaired
immune systems are at the greatest risk for
developing symptoms.
I encourage Berkeley community members to make sure they and their children
have received the required two doses of the
measles vaccine, Berkeleys health officer
Dr. Janet Berreman said in a statement.
Berreman also suggested residents obtain

was not released.
Police were looking into whether the burglary was related to at least six similar
crimes in the San Francisco Bay Area during
the last year.
Electronics, high-end clothing and purses
have been stolen during past crimes. On
Jan. 27, thieves smashed a stolen SUV
through the front of a Wells Fargo museum
in San Francisco, making off with gold

records of their vaccination, which could be


critical if there is a local outbreak.
Health officials said that measles is highly preventable.
Ninety-nine percent of the people who
get two doses of the vaccine are protected
from infection. Ninety-five percent of people who get one does are protected.
Berkeleys Department of Health Services
is working with La Mediterranee to notify
and assess anyone who may have been
exposed to the virus. The Department is
also working with the County of San Mateo
Health System to trace the people the
infected individual had contact with.
Health officials dont know how the resident who dined at La Mediterranee got
infected.
Measles can have significant impacts to a
persons health and can lead to death in
some cases. The impacts are especially significant among pregnant women and children, according to health officials.

Some farmers to go without fed water


By Fenit Nirappil
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO The federal government said Friday it wont send any


of its reservoir water to the Central
Valley for the second straight year,
forcing farmers in Californias agricultural heartland to again scramble for
other sources or leave fields unplanted.
Many farmers had been bracing for
the U. S. Bureau of Reclamations
announcement as Californias drought
enters its fourth year. Some farms are
exempt from complete cuts under
Californias antiquated water rights
system dating to Gold Rush-era days.
But many farmers are running out of
short-term options to deal with water
shortages, such as uprooting orchards
and tapping groundwater wells.
They were able to Band-Aid things
together last year just to keep their
trees alive, said Ryan Jacobsen, exec-

utive director of the Fresno County


Farm Bureau. The first aid kit we had
last year is really not available this
year.
The Central Valley Project conveys
water through a system of dams and
reservoirs and 500 miles of canals.
The agency says it can irrigate up to a
third of Californias agricultural land
when water is flowing.
When planning deliveries, the federal government has mandatory obligations to farms and communities holding senior water rights, including the
city of Sacramento, and wildlife
refuges protected by federal law to
restore fish habitats, said Ron
Milligan, a Central Valley Project
operations manager.
Agriculture ends up bearing much of
federal water cuts during dry periods.
Farmers in the San Joaquin Valley only
received 10 percent of their requested
amounts in 2009 and 20 percent in

2013. Two consecutive years of no


allocations is unprecedented.
Farmers are instead turning to storage supplies and pumping from largely
unregulated groundwater wells that are
quickly being depleted.
Paul Betancourt spent $40,000 to
renovate wells on his 765-acre west
Fresno County farm, where his family
grows cotton, almonds, wheat and
onions. He can keep watering his
crops this year but says groundwater
isnt a long-term solution.
We are draining a finite supply of
water, he said. It was ugly last year,
and its going to get uglier this year
California is increasing distribution
from a separate state-operated system
of reservoirs and canals with fewer
mandatory obligations. The State
Water Project announced last month
that it could provide local agencies and
farmers 15 percent of the water they
requested, up from 5 percent last year.

SACRAMENTO California Republicans achieved their


modest goals last year of preventing Democrats from securing a two-thirds majority in both houses of the state
Legislature and rescuing the party from debt. Those gains
dont add up to a lot, but at least the party still has a seat at
the table in Democratic California.
As Republicans meet in Sacramento this weekend to plot
their strategy for the next two years, their long-term challenges are stark.
With party registration at 28 percent after several years of
decline, demographics are not in their favor. Democrats
stand at 43 percent and 23 percent are independents who are
not affiliated with any party.
The announcement last month by U.S. Sen. Barbara
Boxer that she will not seek re-election next year highlights another huge problem for the party: its paucity of
viable candidates for high office. In what should be a blockbuster political contest, California Republicans so far have
no competitive candidate to challenge the only announced
candidate, state Attorney General Kamala Harris, although a
former state party chairman and an assemblyman from San
Diego County have opened exploratory committees.
A Field Poll last week found that former Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice, a Republican, would be an automatic
front-runner in the Senate rate, but shes not interested in
the job.

Around the nation


Tribes from around U.S.
gather to discuss legal marijuana
TULALIP, Wash. The Justice Departments announcement in December that it would allow the nations Indian
tribes to legalize and regulate marijuana on their reservations brought notes of caution if not silence or opposition from many tribes.
They were reluctant given the substance-abuse problems
that already plague many reservations.
But the attendance at a conference on the topic Friday
gave an early indication of just how many might be weighing it, even if a thicket of potential legal issues remain.
Representatives of about 75 tribes from around the country converged on the Tulalip Indian Tribes resort and casino
for a $605-a-head seminar on the regulatory, legal and
social issues related to pot legalization.

STATE GOVERNMENT
State Sen. Jerry Hi l l , D-San
Mateo , introduced legislation that
would require local governing bodies in
California to take public comment
before implementing cellphone intercept technology. According to Hills
ofce, law enforcement agencies use this technology to
determine who a person is calling, when that call is made
and where the call originated. In some cases, depending on
the capabilities of the technology, it can also capture the
content of a conversation. Under the right circumstances,
cellphone intercept technology can be a useful tool to catch
suspects. The portable devices, which mimic a cellphone
tower and are usually the size of a suitcase, have raised concerns because they can scoop up cellphone data from so
many people at once, whether they are suspects or not.
Current law does not guarantee public comment before
this technology is adopted, according to Hills ofce.

Bordering on
dysfunction
Congress OKs one-week bill to
keep Homeland Security open
By David Espo
and Erica Werner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Bordering on
dysfunction, Congress passed a
one-week bill late Friday night to
avert a partial shutdown of the
Homeland Security Department,
as leaders in both political parties quelled a revolt by House
conservatives furious that the
measure left President Barack
Obamas immigration policy
intact.
The final vote of a long day and
night was a bipartisan 357-60 in
the House, a little more than an
hour after the Senate cleared the
measure without so much as a roll
call.
That sent the legislation to
the White House for Obamas
signature, and capped a day of
bruising political battles and

rhetoric to match.
You have made a mess, House
Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi
said at one point to Republicans,
as recriminations filled the House
chamber and the midnight deadline neared for a partial shutdown
of an agency with major anti-terrorism responsibilities.
Even some Republicans readily
agreed.
There are terrorist attacks all
over world and were talking
about closing down Homeland
Security. This is like living in
world of crazy people, tweeted
Rep. Peter King of New York, a
former chairman of the Homeland
Security Committee.
Hours after conservatives
joined with Democrats to vote
down a three-week funding measure, 224-203, the Senate presented a one-week alternative to keep
open the agency, which has

responsibility for border control
as well as anti-terrorist measures.
That amounted to a take-it-orleave it offer less than three hours
before the deadline.
Some Republican opponents
members of a Freedom Caucus
sat together in the chamber as
the vote total mounted in the legislations favor.
This time, Pelosi urged her
rank-and-file to support the
short-term measure, saying it
would lead to passage next week

of a bill to fund the agency


through the Sept. 30 end of the
budget year without immigration
add-ons. Aides to Speaker John
Boehner promptly said there had
been no such promise made.
Taken together, the days
roller-coaster events at the
Capitol underscored the difficulty
Republicans have had so far this
year in translating last falls election gains into legislative
accomplishment a step its own
leaders say is necessary to estab-

lish the partys credentials as a


responsible, governing party.
Republicans gained control of
the Senate in Novembers balloting, and emerged with their
largest House majority in more
than 70 years.
Further demonstrating GOP
woes, House GOP leaders abruptly
called off a vote on a major education bill that had attracted significant opposition from conservatives as well as Democrats and the
White House.

House Republican leaders scrap education vote


By Kimberly Hefling
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON In a political
embarrassment for Republicans,
House GOP leaders on Friday
abruptly cancelled a vote on a bill
to update the George W. Bush-era

No Child Left Behind education


law after struggling to find support from conservatives.
The bill would keep the annual
testing requirements on schools
but would give more freedom to
states and districts to spend federal dollars and identify and fix fail-

ing schools. But conservative


opponents said it doesnt go far
enough to let states and districts
set education policy. Such conservative groups as Heritage Action
for America and Club for Growth
are among the opponents.
We have a constitutional duty

as members of Congress to return


education decisions to parents and
states, Rep. Justin Amash, RMich. , wrote this week on
Facebook.
Democrats also dislike the bill
and said it would abdicate the federal governments responsibility

to ensure that poor, minority, disabled and non-English speaking


students go to good schools and
that billions of federal education
dollars are spent wisely. The
White House threatened to veto
the bill, calling it a significant
step backwards.

CAKE
Continued from page 1
open Rachels Cakes, located at 737
California Drive in Burlingame, last April.
A novice businesswoman, Richenbach
said she has thoroughly enjoyed the process
of starting her own company, though it has
been scary at times.
I definitely took a leap of faith, she
said. Its been terrifying and exciting.
Richenbach honed her baking skills
while working at Sibbys Cupcakery in San
Mateo. But after growing tired of cupcakes,
she left the company in 2009, and swore
she would never bake for the rest of her life.
Years later though, while working as a
nanny, Richenbach began to grow sweet on
baking again. That led to her making cakes
for friends and family on the weekend,
which gradually grew to her house being
overwhelmed by sweet treats.

ANOAI
Continued from page 1
ants on the hit Fox music competition
show, said many nights he was not able to
sleep more than two hours, between auditions, practices, photo shoots, recording
interviews and performances.
That was the most challenging part, he
said. Having to work and work and work ...
and then trying to stay awake.
But despite exhaustion from the crazy
work schedule, and his early exit from the
show which was aired last week, Anoai said
the experience only fueled his fire to perform.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

The transition from home baker to shop


owner has been eased by relying on customers who she served prior to opening the
company, she said.
But more importantly, Richenbach said
she depended on her friendship with Arlene
Rodriguez, a former colleague at Sibbys,
who joined her in opening the company.
Rodriguez specializes in creating customized cakes, offering customers an
opportunity to design their order in whatever shape or flavor they wish.
The initial inspiration to begin customizing stemmed from an order to mold a cake in
the shape of a Jordan brand athletic shoe,
said Richenbach.
She said she had never tried to express her
creativity in shaping a cake, but loved the
process.
It was so much fun, I couldnt believe it,
she said.
Richenbach and Rodriguez now encourage
customers to think as far out of the box as
possible, and form unique cakes that

express the personality of those who will


be enjoying them.
Some of the customized cakes the two
have come up with include a snare drum, a
baseball stadium, a lobster, a zombie and
many more designs.
Richenbach said she recalls Rodriguez
making a cake featuring a replica of a human
flesh that was especially disturbing.
It was disgusting, Richenbach said. It
was so cool.
The company also offers wedding cakes,
which the two said can be extremely stressful to create, but also satisfying to deliver.
Rodriguez said she appreciates the value
cake can play in a wedding, and role the bakery will play in the couples marriage.
You are part of someones forever. You
are being sewn into peoples lives, and that
is really neat, she said.
Beyond the wedding cakes and creative
designs, Richenbach said the most popular
cake is the Aunt Mouse cake, named in
honor of her aunt who worked in a bakery

and helped develop her love for cakes.


Richenbach said a portion of the profits
from each sale of the vanilla cake layered
with cream cheese filling and strawberry
goes to the American Cancer Society.
She said opening and running a company
without a business background can be difficult, but also tremendously rewarding.
Both Richenbach and Rodriguez agree
they do not pine for the days when they were
able to leave their work behind, and appreciate the challenge of how the company has
changed their life.
But the shops owner said working with
her friend has been the icing on the cake.
I went into it wary, because I was afraid of
going into business with a friend, she
Richenbach. But its been wonderful working together. I couldnt imagine going
through this with anyone else.

The hours spent developing his craft on


the show taught him the dedication necessary to succeed as a performer, he said.
It helped me define the type of work ethic
that I need to last in the industry, he said.
Anoai, a junior at Junipero Serra High
School in San Mateo, advanced through the
San Francisco regional competition and
onto the next round hosted in Hollywood.
Previous to entering the competition,
Anoai had limited experience performing
publicly, but he said he gradually became
more comfortable singing for large audiences and superstar judges such as Jennifer
Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr.
Since his elimination, through recognition from the show, Anoai said he has
booked shows as nearby as San Francisco
and as far away as Las Vegas and Hawaii.
Going forward, he said
record labels have reached
out to him to express interest in signing him.
I think this confirmed
that I do want to be an entertainer, he said. The work is

hard. But when I get on stage and perform, I


feel at home. The work is a necessity, he
said.
His sister initially encouraged him to
audition for the show, despite mostly only
having experience singing in his local
church before joining the competition.
The support of his family, friends and
church was integral to helping him survive
the stress of performing, he said.
All Ive heard is positive love and support. Even when I got cut, all I heard was
positivity, regardless of the outcome, he
said.
Contestants on American Idol are required
to sign a confidentiality agreement, which
limits the amount of people a performer on
the show can contact, and the information
they can share.
Luckily, Anoai said that he comes from a
big family, so although the contract stipulated he could only speak on the phone with
immediate members of his family, that still
included a large support system.
Throughout the process, he said it was
important for him to remember that he was

not just competing for himself.


The motivation was my family, he said.
I was doing this for my community.
He said he studied remotely for the duration of the contest, but found it difficult to
focus on school amidst all the practices and
performances.
There was definitely no time for school,
he said.
Anoai expressed his appreciation for the
support that the school showed him
throughout the process, and the way his
classmates have welcomed him home.
Anoai said he learned many valuable lessons during the process auditioning on the
show, but most importantly, that his goals
as a performer are attainable.
Im never going to give up on my
dreams, he said. People told me that my
dreams were out of reach. And I may not
have made it to the top. But if you always
chase your dreams, nothing can stop you.

Democrats personally offered Israeli Prime

provocative, closed-door session.
Netanyahu turned them down, frustrating
members of President Barack Obamas party
who are caught between the White House and
the Israeli leader.
Democrats face an unenviable choice on
Tuesday: Attend the speech and listen to the
Israeli leader criticize the president over his

with Netanyahu.

Gomez, a former school teacher who
became one of Mexicos most-wanted drug
lords as head of the Knights Templar cartel, was captured early Friday by federal
police, according to Mexican officials.
Gomez was arrested in a house in
Morelia, the capital of the western state of
Michoacan, without a shot fired, according
to a Mexican official who spoke on condi-

wrath at House Speaker John Boehner, ROhio, who invited Netanyahu without consulting with the White House and State
Department. And theyre publicly disagreeing with the Israeli leader, too.
Rep. Sander Levin, R-Mich. , called
Boehners invitation to Netanyahu a strictly political ploy by the speaker to try to
reinforce the Republicans position on
Israel and divide Democrats.
Netanyahu was mistaken to agree to it,
he said. Speaker Boehner is playing politics with the critical issue of Israels security. Thats beyond pardon as far as Im concerned.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who urged
Israeli officials to move or postpone the
speech, said the temperature has remained

important thing is we not let the critical
significance of the Iranian nuclear issue be
overshadowed.

MOSCOW Boris Nemtsov, a charismatic Russian opposition leader and sharp critic of President Vladimir Putin, was gunned
down Saturday near the Kremlin, just a day
before a planned protest against the government.
The death of Nemtsov, a 55-year-old former deputy prime minister, ignited a fury
among opposition figures who assailed the
Kremlin for creating an atmosphere of
intolerance of any dissent and called the
killing an assassination. Putin quickly
offered his condolences and called the murder a provocation.
Nemtsov was working on a report presenting evidence that he believed proved
Russias direct involvement in the separatist rebellion that has raged in eastern
Ukraine since last April. Ukraine and the
West accuse Russia of backing the rebels
with troops and sophisticated weapons.
Moscow denies the accusations.

Putin ordered Russias


top law enforcement
chiefs to personally
oversee the probe of
Nemtsovs killing.
Putin noted that this
cruel murder has all the
makings of a contract hit
and
is
extremely
provocative,

tial spokesman Dmitry
Peskov said in remarks carried by Russian
news agencies.
President Barack Obama called on
Russias government to perform a prompt,
impartial and transparent investigation to
bring the perpetrators to justice. Obama
called Nemtsov a tireless advocate for the
rights of Russian citizens.
Nemtsov assailed the governments inefficiency, rampant corruption and the
Kremlins Ukraine policy, which has
strained relations between Russia and the
West to a degree unseen since Cold War
times.

Kurdish fighters take town


near Iraq from Islamic State
By Zeina Karam

BEIRUT Backed by U.S.-led coalition


airstrikes, Kurdish fighters fought their way
Friday into a northeastern Syrian town that
was a key stronghold of Islamic State militants, only days after the group abducted
dozens of Christians in the volatile region,
Syrian activists and Kurdish officials said.
The victory marks a second blow to the
extremist IS group in a month, highlight-

ing the growing role of Syrias Kurds as the


most effective fighting force against the
Islamic State. In January, Kurdish forces
drove IS militants from the town of Kobani
near the Turkish border after a months-long
fight, dealing a very public defeat to the
extremists.
But it is also tempered by this weeks horrific abductions by IS militants of more than

February proved to be a strong month


for U.S. stocks, even though it ended in
downbeat fashion.
Major stock indexes closed lower on
Friday, capping a week of subdued trading that still delivered a couple of new
highs for the Dow Jones industrial average and Standard & Poors 500 index. It
also brought the Nasdaq composite
within striking distance of its March
2000 high.
The Nasdaq notched the biggest
monthly gain at 7.1 percent. But the
S&P 500s 5.5 percent performance
marked its best monthly increase since
October 2011, and a turnaround from its
3.1 percent slide in January. The Dow
rose 5.6 percent for the month.
Trading was listless for much of
Friday as investors balanced encouraging reports on housing and consumer
confidence against data showing that
the U.S. economy grew at a slower
annual rate in the final months of 2014
than previously estimated. Oil rose,
recouping some of its losses from a day
earlier. Technology stocks were among
the biggest decliners.
Many people are trying to figure out
what to do, taking some profits when
they can. We saw that over the past couple of days with tech stocks, said JJ
Kinahan, TD Ameritrades chief strategist. Its a wait-and-see attitude.

The Dow ended down 81.72 points, or


0.5 percent, to 18,132.70. Thats 0.5
percent below its most-recent high of
18,224.57 on Wednesday.
The S&P 500 slid 6.24 points, or 0.3
percent, to 2,104.50. The index is
down 0.5 from a high of 2,115.48 on
Tuesday.
The Nasdaq fell 24.36 points, or 0.5
percent, to 4,963.53. The index has
been inching closer to crossing the

attractive relative to bonds. Strong job
growth and improving consumer confidence have also encouraged traders,
despite signs of sluggishness in Europe
and elsewhere.
Some of that confidence appeared
shaken on Friday, when the Commerce
Department reported that the U.S.
economy grew at an annual rate of 2.2
percent in the October-December quarter, weaker than the 2.6 percent estimate last month. The latest growth
projection represents a major slowdown from the previous quarter, which
produced the strongest growth in 11
years.

Other economic bellwethers were


more upbeat: An index of pending home
sales, an indicator of potentially completed sales, rose in January and the
December figure was revised higher to
show a smaller decline. Separately, the
University of Michigans index of consumer sentiment slipped this month. It
remains at the highest level in eight
years.
The market does not have a clear catalyst to either cause it to sell off or to
surge forward, and were getting a little
expensive from a valuation perspective, said David Heidel, regional
investment director at U.S. Bank
Wealth Management.
Investors should get a better sense of
the economy and consumers willingness to spend next week, when
automakers report their February sales
figures and the government issues its
monthly update on hiring.
All told, eight of the 10 sectors in the
S&P 500 ended lower, with technology
stocks notching the biggest decline.
The sector is up 4.2 percent this year.
Consumer staples rose the most. Those
stocks are up 2.9 percent this year.
Several energy companies were
among the biggest decliners in the S&P
500.
Southwestern Energy fell $1.27, or
4.8 percent, to $25.08, while NRG
Energy lost 79 cents, or 3.2 percent, to
$23.98. Chesapeake Energy slid 52
cents, or 3 percent, to $16.68.

Five reasons U.S. economy is stronger than Q4 GDP suggests

nomic growth would settle into a more sustainable pace.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The U.S. economy grew


at a modest annual rate of 2.2 percent in the
fourth quarter, less than half the third quarters
torrid 5 percent rate and weaker than the government first reported. Here are five reasons
why Fridays gross domestic product report
showed that the economy is doing just fine:

REALISTIC GROWTH
The sizzling growth rate in the JulySeptember quarter was never going to last.
One-time factors, such as a 16 percent surge
in federal defense spending, fueled the
strongest acceleration in almost a dozen
years. The third quarter growth followed a 4.6
percent jump in the second quarter, which was
also misleading. That was credited to a robust
rebound after harsh winter weather sent the
economy into reverse in the first quarter.
After such big swings, its natural that eco-

CONSUMER STILL KING


The centerpiece of the fourth quarters
growth was consumer spending, which
expanded at a 4.2 percent rate. That was the
strongest quarterly growth since early 2006.
Consumers benefited from falling gas prices,
which gave them more to spend on other
items. Consumer spending accounts for 70
percent of economic activity, and economists said the solid performance in the final
three months of the year was an encouraging
sign going into 2015.

BUSINESS SPENDING
Another promising sign emerged from
companies. Fridays report revealed that they
increased investment spending to expand and
modernize their facilities at a solid 4.8 percent rate in the fourth quarter. While that was
down from the pace over the previous six

months, it was a marked improvement over


the governments first estimate that business
investment had only risen at a 1.9 percent
pace during the three-month period.
The robust upward revision eased concerns
that businesses might cut back sharply on
investment in the face of global economic
weakness and a rising dollar, which hurts
export sales. Moreover, one area of weakness
in the governments report Friday a slowdown in business stockpiling may turn out
to be a good thing for the future. Slower
inventory building in the fourth quarter will
mean that businesses will spend more in the
coming months as they respond to rising
demand. That should then lead to stronger factory production and ultimately, economic
growth.

JOB GROWTH
While GDP growth slowed in the fourth
quarter, the job market was on a roll. The
surge continued into January, giving the

Signed contracts to buy U.S. homes rise to 18-month high


By Christopher S. Rugaber
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The number of


Americans signing contracts to buy
homes rose at a healthy pace in
January, a sign that home sales are
poised to accelerate after a slow start to
the year.
The National Association of
Realtors said Friday that its seasonally
adjusted pending home sales index
increased 1.7 percent to 104.2 last
month. Decembers figure was also

revised higher to show a decline of


only 1.5 percent, considerably better
than a previously estimated drop of
3.7 percent.
The index is now 8.4 percent above
its level one year ago and is at the
highest level since August 2013.
The data point to a rebound in sales
of existing homes in the coming
months, particularly as the spring
buying season gets underway.
Measures of sales and construction fell
last month, raising concerns that the
housing market would continue to

struggle after a weak 2014. But economists expect that strong job gains,
low mortgage rates and solid consumer
confidence will give a moderate boost
to home sales this year.
Through the volatility, the trend in
home sales is probably up modestly at
least, Jim OSullivan, chief U. S.
economist at High Frequency
Economics, said in a note to clients.
Pending sales are a barometer of
future purchases. A one- to two-month
lag usually exists between a contract
and a completed sale.

As tastes change, big food makers try hipster guises


By Candice Choi
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HUNTINGTON BEACH At a taco


shop in Southern California, milkshakes are served in mason jars and a
chalkboard menu lists The 1%er
made with lobster meat.
The logo is a pink skull and instead
of buzzers, customers are given license
plates so servers can identify them

when bringing out orders.


Nowhere is it evident that the U.S.
Taco Co. is an outpost of a chain better
known for cheesy gut bombs: Taco
Bell.
Major companies are testing
whether it would pay to tuck away their
world famous logos in favor of more
hipster guises: PepsiCo, for instance,
introduced a craft soda called Calebs
last year and McDonalds opened a cafe

that lists lentils and eggplant on its


menu. The stealth efforts reflect the
pressures on the countrys biggest
food makers, which are contending
with the surging popularity of smaller
brands that position themselves as
decidedly less corporate.
For big food companies, the lowkey efforts are a way feel out changing
tastes and cozy up to new customers,
particularly those in their 20s and 30s.

country the strongest pace of job creation in


17 years - job gains of 423,00 in November,
329,000 in December and 257,000 in
January. Hopes for 2015 stem from the theory that strong job growth and falling unemployment will force employers to start
boosting salaries to attract workers. The
combination of more jobs and rising salaries
is likely to fuel strong consumer spending
this year.

THE ROAD AHEAD


To be sure, not all the signals are flashing
green. The GDP report showed that trade will
likely weigh on the economy this year.
Imports shot up at a much faster rate than
exports, and the wider deficit subtracted 1.1
percentage points from fourth quarter growth.
The stronger dollar makes imports cheaper
and more attractive to U.S. consumers but
dampens demand for U.S. exports. Housing
has also lagged in the recovery, though it is
expected to strengthen this year.

Yet despite having an off-night scoring
and the bread-and-butter of their defense not
fully functioning, the Gators still managed
to win the first Open Division basketball

It was by no means easy. SHP (23-2) led

SANTA CLARA A lot of attention has

And why not? The Gators averaged over 70
points per game during the regular season.
Friday night, however, SHP proved it can
get down and dirty defensively. Suffering a

round of the Central Coast Section Open


Division playoffs at Wilcox High.
Weve had games like that this year, said
SHP coach Tony Martinelli. Our guys just
kept fighting.
Making the Gators defensive performance
even more remarkable is the fact that a big
facet of that defense is its full-court press. In
order to implement it, however, the Gators
need to be scoring. In the first half, they
went more than seven minutes between
points and nearly nine minutes between
field goals.
A big part of our defense is our press,

Serra opened its postseason with otherworldly intensity. The scoreboard following the first quarter proved it.
The No. 2-seeded Padres rolled to a 66-29
victory over No. 7 Half Moon Bay in
Fridays Central Coast Section Open
Division opener at Wilcox High School. In
the first quarter, Serra outscored Half Moon
Bay by a ridiculous margin of 24-2.
Serra (20-5) opened the game with 22
unanswered points as forward Jake
Killingsworth went on a 3-point spree. But
it was the Padres full-court press that stole
the show by stonewalling the Cougars (243), who turned the ball over 11 times in the
first quarter.
Today we were able to get the ball going
sideways and get some steals on the leads
passes, Serra head coach Chuck Rapp said.
Our defense created offense.
It took Half Moon Bay three-and-a-half
minutes to log their first shot attempt. That
attempt was blocked by Serra forward Paul
Smoot. A minute later, Half Moon Bay
threw up its next shot an air ball. The
Cougars finally had a shot hit iron with
2:22 remaining in the opening quarter.
My fear was getting overwhelmed, Half
Moon Bay head coach Rich Forslund said.
We got overwhelmed. The game was over.
Senior guard Jimmy Wohrer got Serra on
the board in the opening minute with a
quick steal and a gliding lay-up to the hoop.
Then Killingsworth capped another
Cougars turnover by drilling a 3-pointer and
drawing a foul in the process to convert a
four-point play.
Serras next two possessions were punctuated by Killingsworth 3-pointers as Half
Moon Bay was forced to take a timeout trailing 12-0 without even having attempted a
shot.
Its a great feeling, Killingsworth said
of being in the zone. Ive got to thank my
teammates. Theyre the ones hitting me
with [passes]. It was just my night. They
were just going in.

SAN JOSE The Peninsula Athletic


League started out strong with 10 out of 12
high school teams staying alive at the
Central Coast Section boys wrestling tournament Friday.
Half Moon Bay stood out with eight
wrestlers still competing for a spot at the
state wrestling tournament. Edrey Casamina
(113), Emilio Bautista (120), and Marcos
Sarabia (220) are in the quarterfinals of the
champions brackets, whereas their teammates Evan Marshall (126), Will Fullerton
(132), Omar Droubi (138), Hugo Plancarte
(160), and Kim Alves (170) are in the consultation brackets looking to finish off with
third place
Neither Casamina and Bautista have never
placed at the section tournament before.
Before this weekends tournament,
Casamina has never qualified for CCS.
However, Bautista qualified for CCS last
year, but went 1-2 in the same weight class
he is in this year. Their teammate Sarabia,
on the other hand, placed sixth at both the
2013 and 2014 section tournament.
This year Half Moon Bay is determined to
get their wrestlers qualified for state. With
three wrestlers in the champions bracket
and five in the consolation bracket, they
have a pretty good chance in succeeding.
We had a guy to go state two years ago. It
would be nice to get everyone to go to state.
Were shooting for all eight to go to state
tomorrow, Half Moon Bay coach Tom
Baker said.
Additional stand outs of Day 1 were
Sequoias Masa Danovitz (113), El
Caminos Christian Diokno (120), and
Menlo Athertons Donald LaHaye (182), all
of which went 3-0 Friday and are in the quarterfinals.
Danovitz was an underdog at the finals of
the Peninsula Athletic League tournament
last weekend and ended up surprising the
crowd as he clinched the title. Friday he
proved that he is a tough competitor as he
won two matches by fall and one by decision.

TORONTO Klay Thompson scored 25

Draymond Green had 17 points and nine

Warriors 113, Raptors 89


fouls and were ejected.
Terrence Ross scored 18 points and DeMar
DeRozan had 14 for the Raptors, who
matched their longest losing streak of the
season with their fourth straight defeat.
Golden State was among the teams to beat
Toronto in its previous four-game skid,
from Dec. 30 to Jan. 8. That stretch also
included losses at Phoenix and Portland, and
a home defeat to Charlotte.

Forward Patrick Patterson replaced Amir


Johnson in the starting lineup, but the
change did nothing to boost Torontos
offense. The Raptors shot 1 for 19 in the
first, missing their final 16 attempts and
setting a record for the worst single-quarter
mark in team history at 5.3 percent.
Torontos previous worst was a 1-for-15
performance in the fourth quarter at Indiana
on Nov. 13, 2012, a game it won 74-72.
The Warriors are in the midst of a stretch
that sees them play five times in seven

Caada men advance in Nor Cal, Skyline women fall

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Caada mens basketball is a team on a mission.


Just one season after posting a 5-22 overall
record, the Colts are talking a state championship run. They got off to a splendid start in
Fridays Northern California Regional opener
with a 79-75 win at Diablo Valley College.
No. 9-seed Caada played it close, taking a
33-32 lead into halftime. But freshman
Crisshawn Clark sparked the Colts with a
quick 3-pointer to start the second half. Clark
added a lay-in as Caada went on a 5-1 run and
commanded the floor from there.
Five Caada players scored in double figures with Rohndell Goodwin totaling a game-

high 20 points and added seven rebounds and


five steals.
Caada sophomore Israel Hakim added 15,
Clark had 13, Manny Martin had 12 and
Kenny Hatch scored 10 and added four
assists. Martin who missed Caadas season finale with a abdominal injury looked
unfazed Friday while grabbing a team-high
nine rebounds.
Olajuwon Garner paced DVC with 14
points.
Beyond the numbers, it was Caada freshman Rodrigo Puliceno who stole the show as
a defender. Pulicenos assignment in the
Colts aggressive man-to-man defense was to
guard Half Moon Bay standout Rico Nuo,
DVCs second leading scorer. Puliceno held
the freshman guard to five points.

Rodrigo, I cant say enough about him,


Caada head coach Mike Reynoso said.
Everybody he has gone against he has shut
down. He is a guy who rises to the challenge every time defensively and really takes
pride in shutting guys down. Its really a
pleasure to watch.
With the win, Caada advances to Tuesdays
Nor Cal semifinals to take on the winner of
Saturdays matchup between No. 2 San Jose
City and No. 18 Sequoias. The Colts have
played both this season. They handled
Sequoias Dec. 12 91-87. However, it was San
Jose City who handed Caada its first loss of
the year Nov. 14 77-70.
To be honest, I think our guys want to play
San Jose and want a little bit of revenge,
Reynoso said.

Skyline eliminated by Sierra


The Lady Trojans were eliminated from their
first playoff appearance in three years with a
75-65 loss to Sierra.
Sierra broke a tie by going on a five-point
run with 3:30 remaining in the game and kept
Skyline at a distance until the final buzzer.
Great battle, Skyline head coach Chris
Watters said. It was just one of those things
where they got a couple (baskets) down the

KISSIMMEE, Fla. Jed Lowrie was away

To be honest, I was a little disappointed,

a part of an organization that was building
something, pretty much from the ground up.
And thats not to say my experience in
Oakland wasnt great we made the playoffs both years I was there, won the division

Im happy to be back.
Given the chance to pick a team as a free

He returns as a proven 31-year-old shortstop.
Hes entering the stage of his career
where presence matters, where his steadiness matters, manager A.J. Hinch said. He

and I are very aligned on

RBIs two years ago as Oakland won the AL
West. A broken index finger cut into
Lowries production last season, when he
batted .249 with six homers and 50 RBIs.

Earl Lloyd, 1st black player in NBA, dies at 86


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Earl Lloyd was a player and coach, an NBA


champion and later a Hall of Famer. Within
the basketball world, hes something much
bigger.
He was a pioneer.
Lloyd, the first black player in NBA history, died Thursday at 86. West Virginia
State, his alma mater, confirmed the death
but did not provide details.
The NBA family has lost one of its patriarchs, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver
said in a statement. Earl Lloyd, the first
African-American to play in an NBA game,
was as inspirational as he was understated.
He was known as a modest gentleman who
played the game with skill, class, and pride.
His legacy survives in the league he helped
integrate, and the entire NBA family will
strive to always honor his memory.
Lloyd made his NBA debut in 1950 for the
Washington Capitols, just before black
players Sweetwater Clifton and Chuck

Cooper played their first


games.
Lloyd helped the
Syracuse Nationals win
the 1955 NBA title, joining teammate Jim Tucker
as the first black players
to play on a championship team. Lloyd later
became the first black
Earl Lloyd
assistant coach with the
Detroit Pistons in 1968.
The National Basketball Retired Players
Association said Lloyd forever changed the
game of basketball on Halloween night in
1950. The organization hailed him as a
leader, a pioneer, a soldier. Lloyd missed
the 1951-52 season while in the Army.
Modest and willing to share his story
with anyone when asked, Earl offered a
vivid window into our nations segregated
past and personified change in this country, the NBRPA said. A truly historic figure in American history has passed.

The 6-foot-5 forward averaged 8.4 points


and 6.4 rebounds in 560 regular-season
games in nine seasons with Washington,
Syracuse and Detroit. Inducted into the
Basketball Hall of Fame in 2003 as a contributor, Lloyd was 22-55 as Detroits coach
in 1971-72 and the first nine games in the
1972-73 season.
Our franchise will always remember the
impact and contributions Earl made to the
game of basketball and to the Detroit
Pistons as a player, head coach and television analyst, the Pistons said.
Lloyd, a native of Alexandria, Virginia,
lived in Crossville, Tennessee.
West Virginia State President Brian
Hemphill called Lloyd a trailblazer who
was a true champion.
When Earl stepped out on the court on
that fateful date in 1950, this remarkable
man rightfully earned his place in the historic civil rights movement and, more
important, he opened the door to equality in
America.

The conditions at AT&T Park can be less

champion Roger Federer in the final of the
Dubai Championships
after a three-set win over
Tomas
Berdych
on
Friday.
Djokovic, who had a
set and a service break
lead in the match, eventually beat the fourth-seeded Berdych 6-0, 5-7, 6-4.
Novak Djokovic You dont expect anything less than hard work
against someone who has been a top 10
player for many years, Djokovic said.
Even when it went as perfectly as possible
in the first set and I was a break up I knew it
wasnt over.
Despite the lead, Djokovic started making
too many errors - 48 unforced errors in all
to allow Berdych back into the match.
There were a lot of unforced errors
because I just wasnt feeling the ball great,
Djokovic admitted.
Berdych had reached the final in the last
two years, losing out to Djokovic in 2013
and Federer in 2014.
Federer secured his passage to Saturdays
final with a 6-2, 6-1 win over lucky loser
Borna Coric.
Maybe I did have just a bit of too much
variety for him today, and I made it difficult, Federer said. And clearly it was also
part of the game plan to check him out how
he was going to handle the slice and the
speed, the chip and charge and the serve and

result yet as they both went 1-2 at their section tournament last year.
Placing first at PAL and third at section
last year, Diokno was definitely the wrestler
to look out during the day. Each match
Diokno had a different challenge, but in the
end he always pulled through.

Cougars got into the half-court set, Serra


was keen to keep them from penetrating to
their big post players.
Theyre big and theyre tough in there,
Killingsworth said. All week in practice
we worked on getting in the lanes and not
letting them in there.
Then the Padres doubled down on their
fast start, allowing the Cougars just four
points in the third quarter including just
one field goal.
There was a scary moment amid the
hyper-physical second half when Wohrer
hit the floor and came out of the game with
a leg injury. Rapp said it was merely a leg
cramp though and that Wohrer will be ready
to go for Tuesdays semifinal matchup with
Mitty.
With the game out of reach, both teams
cleared the benches in the fourth quarter.
The look on the faces of Half Moon Bays
starters as they watched the closing min-

utes was one of disbelief.


Maybe theyll learn a little something,
Forslund said. Its a dynamite team theyre
playing. I wouldnt be surprised if they win
the Open. Theyre certainly capable.
No one knows better than Serra how
tough the road to an Open Division title is
though. The Padres have lost in the Open
Division finals in each of the past two seasons, both loses coming at the hands of
Mitty.
For Killingsworth, last years 68-60 loss
stung, of course. But going forward, it has
served the Padres as a motivator this season.
That was a tough loss too,
Killingsworth said. We were up 17 at one
point and its been in the back of every
returning players mind since we started
summer workouts. Its just been what weve
been working for since the beginning of
the year: the [league championship], unfor-

tunately we didnt get that. But the next

In his first match, Diokno won by a firstperiod pin at the 1:38 mark against Monta
Vistas Owen Malone. His second match was
won by a technical fall of 16-0 against

against Alisals Rico Huerta, eventually
winning by 11-5.
One upset of the day was Carlmonts
Dylan Adams, the first Scot to reach PAL
finals and CCS, was defeated in the consolation bracket after his first-round

Stolen car forces Kvapil to withdraw Logano follows


from NASCAR qualifier in Atlanta win at Daytona
with pole at ATL
By Paul Newberry

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HAMPTON, Ga. When Travis Kvapil got


the call Friday, he figured someone on his
race team was playing a joke.
They said there was trouble with the car,
Kvapil said. I thought we could figure it out
when we got in the garage area. Theyre like,
No, the car is gone.
The No. 44 NASCAR Sprint Cup car owned
by small-budget Team XTREME was stolen
from a hotel parking lot near Atlanta Motor
Speedway, police said, forcing Kvapil to
withdraw from this weekends race before he
even got a chance to qualify.
The $250,000 race car was still missing
late in the afternoon, and police were hoping the public could assist in the search. The
owner of one NASCAR sponsor offered a pit
pass to every race the rest of the year to anyone who helped located the high-powered
Chevrolet.
Its insane, said team owner John Cohen,
who didnt have a backup car to run in Atlanta.
For a few hours, the team held out hope of
the car being found in time for qualifying
Friday, but it was forced to withdraw when it
missed NASCARs mandatory inspection.
The Sprint Cup race is Sunday.
Its really bizarre, Kvapil said. You can
handle maybe getting a flat tire, or getting
caught up in a wreck, or a blown engine,
something that actually happens on the race
track. Or you dont qualify, because you dont
have enough speed. But to not even get a
chance ... thats pretty disheartening.
It was an especially tough blow for Team

XTREME, which doesnt


have the funding of major
multi-car operations such
as Hendrick Motorsports
and Joe Gibbs Racing.
Despite a wreck in qualifying, the team managed
to make the field for the
season-opening Daytona
Travis Kvapil 500 with Reed Sorenson
behind the wheel. He finished 32nd in the race.
Sorenson switched to a different team for
the Atlanta race, prompting Team XTREME to
hire Kvapil, a one-time Sprint Cup regular
who had only five starts in the top NASCAR
series last season and was looking to make
his first appearance of 2015.
I was excited to be part of a small team and
trying to build up with them, Kvapil said.
Personally, its a big setback.
A trailer with the red race car inside was
hitched to a black 2004 Ford F-350 pickup
truck parked outside a hotel in Morrow,
Georgia, about 15 miles south of Atlanta
and a short drive from the speedway, police
said. Surveillance video showed the truck
and trailer being driven out of the parking
lot around 5:30 a. m. , Morrow police
Detective Sgt. Larry Oglesby said.
The team, which had been working 18-hour
days to get the car ready for Atlanta, was
scheduled to leave for the track at 5:45 a.m.,
and a crewman had been outside a few minutes
before the theft, smoking a cigarette.
Ive been doing this since 1979, crew
chief Peter Sospenzo said. Ive probably
been to 1,200 hotels and 1,200 race tracks.

Never once has this happened. Its crazy. But


theres a first for everything, I guess.
The trailer is plain white with no markings.
The person who stole it likely didnt realize
the race car was inside, and may have thought
it was lawn equipment or something else he
could easily sell, Oglesby said.
Hopefully theyll open this one up and
say, Oh no, this isnt what we thought, and
will drop it off at the nearest vacant lot or
apartment complex or somewhere, he said.
Normally, the car would have been transported using the teams hauler, an 18-wheel
tractor trailer. But, with a winter storm moving through the Southeast this week, Cohen
sent the hauler to Atlanta earlier in the week.
Back at the shop, the team was still working
on the car, a different version than the one that
ran under restrictor-plate rules in Daytona. It
was sent separately to Atlanta late Thursday
after the storm cleared out, accompanied by
Sospenzo and six other crew members.
My whole plan backfired, said Cohen,
who has been running a Sprint Cup car since
2012 and is one of the few African-Americans
involved in NASCARs top series.
In addition to the race car, the trailer also
contained a spare engine valued at $100,000
and racing equipment valued at $17,500,
according to a police report. Even so, Cohen
vowed the team would return for next weekends race in Las Vegas.
Kvapil said the thieves probably wont be
able to cash in on their surprising haul.
Theres really no use for it out in the general public, he said. I hope they realize
that and will leave it somewhere where the
police can find it.

HAMPTON, Ga. Daytona 500 winner


Joey Logano won the pole for Sundays
NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Atlanta Motor
Speedway after a qualifying session in which 13
drivers didnt get on the
track after failing to pass
inspection.
Among those who were
stuck in the paddock
Friday evening: former
champions Jeff Gordon,
Joey Logano Matt Kenseth, Jimmie
Johnson
and
Tony
Stewart. Gordon, who is retiring at the end of
the year, called the situation embarrassing
for the sport.
At least those four will be in the race based
on their points from last season. That wasnt
the case for Mike Wallace, Matt DiBenedetto,
Michael Annett and Reed Sorenson, who were
bumped out of the 43-car field without even
getting a chance to take a lap.
Logano led the final session of qualifying
with a blistering speed of 194.683 mph, taking advantage of temperatures in the 40s as
the sun set on the 1.54-mile trioval. He has
never been a strong qualifier in Atlanta, but
hes on quite a roll after his victory last weekend in the biggest race of the year.

McIlroy to miss cut at Honda Classic after subpar round


By Doug Ferguson
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. Rory


McIlroys first PGA Tour event in five
months lasted only two days.
His road to the Masters hit a speed bump
Friday in the Honda Classic when the
worlds No. 1 player managed only one
birdie in the rain, stumbled badly down the
stretch and headed home for the weekend
after a 4-over 74, the first time in nearly a
year he had consecutive rounds over par.

The cut officially will


not be made until
Saturday because of a rain
delay of nearly four
hours, though he knew
the score. And he wasnt
happy about it.
I dont like missing
cuts, McIlroy said. You
Rory McIlroy want to be playing on
the weekend, and Im not
there. Im not going to be playing this
weekend, which is not nice.

GATORS

finally made a field goal at the


2:58 mark when Moses his first
bucket of the night a 3-pointer.

Continued from page 11

We were stuck on 12 for a


while, Koch said.

who had made only two shots all


game long. With SHP clinging to a
45-39 lead, Moses buried a 3pointer from the right corner to
push the lead back to nine with
2:41 left in the game.
That was huge, said SHP captain Corbin Koch, who finished
with 11 points. He knocked down
a pressure shot.
Moses finished with eight
points. SHP was led by Mason
Randall, who scored a game-high
18 points.
It would be hard to pick just one
player who served as the Gators
go-to guy because so many different guys stepped up at different
points of the game. Late in the second and early third quarters, it was
center Andrew Daschbach who
buried a 3, scored a layup off the
dribble and pulled a handful of
rebounds. The third quarter also
saw Koch heat up. After scoring
just three points in the first half
on the first possession of the game
he had eight in the third.
In the fourth it was Harrison Toig
coming off the bench to score two
clutch buckets.
In the first half? There wasnt
much scoring period for the
Gators. They jumped out to a quick
9-2 lead to start the game and when
Randall buried his second 3 of the
quarter from the left corner, SHP
held a 12-6 lead with 3:55 to play
in the first half.
The Gators, however, did not
score another point until Randall
made 1 of 2 free throws at the 4:47
mark of the second quarter. They

During that scoring drought,


however, the Gators made sure the
Crusaders did not take advantage.
Riordan outscored the Gators
During that stretch, but scored
only seven points. The Crusaders
did manage to tie the score at 21 by
halftime, however.
SHP opened the third quarter with
a 3-0 run to take a 24-21 lead
before the offense finally found its
rhythm. Over the final 5:41 of the
period, the Gators outscored the
Crusaders 14-4 to take a 37-29 lead
into the fourth, when they extended their lead to 12 before holding
on down the stretch.
With the win, the Gators advance
to the Open Division semifinals,
while Riordan will play in the consolation bracket. SHP will play
No. 1 St. Francis (20-4) Tuesday at
Independence High. The Lancers
beat No. 8 Fremont-Sunnyvale 5734.
There is a good chance SHP will
face a West Catholic Athletic team
from now until the CCS championship game if the Gators make
it that far.
But they relish the opportunity
to give it a shot.
No matter what, the challenge
of playing WCAL-level teams is
what weve strived for, Martinelli
said.
Added Koch: We definitely have
the capabilities of playing with
these WCAL teams. We can make a
solid run. We have all the pieces.

It was pleasant enough for Patrick Reed,


who recovered from a double bogey early in
his round by playing bogey-free the rest of
the way for another 67. He was the clubhouse leader at 6-under 134. None of the late
starters had enough light to play more than
12 holes before the second round was suspended by darkness.
Brendan Steele birdied all four holes he
played and was at 8 under.
The Honda Classic is considered the
start of the buildup to the Masters, and
McIlroy is getting more attention than

LOS ANGELES In
1975, Leonard Nimoy published an autobiography
with the defiant title, I Am

show the world he had many

Yet two decades later, after
proving that with a career

to fate with I Am Spock, a
revisionist sequel.
Nimoy had come to appreciate Mr. Spocks enduring

the lobby and a rooftop
garden (close enough). I
try to visit my grandparents as frequently as I
can first and foremost
because I love spending
time with them, and secondly because its fun to
say that I spent the afternoon at Versailles.
In high school, it feels like a lot of people want our attention parents, siblings,
friends, teachers, coaches, college counselors but its important not to forget
about our grandparents. Im certainly lucky
to have both of my mothers parents with
us, and unlike the people listed above,
grandparents dont ask anything of us.
They want to be updated on our social
lives, to see pictures from our weekend outings, to talk about our future plans, to feed
us and to see us happy. Making time to do
that at least a few times a month is easy (if
its geographically possible). Even if your
grandparents dont live nearby and you
arent able to see them often, call them. If I
ever miss a week of seeing my grandparents, I make sure to talk to them on the
phone about their day, the TV shows airing
that n ight and any other news. Its important to set aside time for your grandparents,
whether it be by visiting them or talking
via the phone because the truth is that time
with our grandparents is precious. Just like
us, they are getting older, and one day, the
only activity youll be able to partake in
with them is talking.
When I was younger, I remember going
to the mall and the park to spend the day
with my grandparents. We cant do those
activities anymore, but we have replaced

Conflicted loyalties
rise in The Convert
By Judy Richter
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

Irony ultimately rules in The Convert,


presented in its Bay Area premiere by Marin
Theatre Company.
Danai Gurira sets her play in Salisbury,
Rhodesia, (present day Harare, Zimbabwe),
between 1895 and 1897. A young African
woman, Jekesai (Katherine Renee Turner),
is taken to the home of Chilford (Jabari
Brisport) by her cousin, Tamba (JaBen
Early).
Because Tambas mother, Mai Tamba
(Elizabeth Carter), works there as a maid,

Tamba hopes that Jekesai can find refuge


from her uncle (L. Peter Callender) who
would force her to marry a much older man,
whom she despises.
Chilford is an African who has renounced
his tribal heritage and become a lay Roman
Catholic minister trying to convert other
Africans. He changes Jekesais name to
Ester. She comes to embrace Catholicism
and to join him in his missionary work.
Over time, however, the natives begin to
rebel against the white English settlers who
have repressed them. Violence follows on

And if Im not listening to Spocks

him an old friend. ... It always amazes me
and touches me to discover how deeply the
series affected so many peoples lives
people who chose careers in science,
astronomy, space exploration, all because
of one television show called Star Trek.
Nimoy had skillfully turned what could
have been a caricature into a dignified,
inspiringly intellectual and even touching
figure, a half-human, half-Vulcan who was a
multicultural and multiethnic touchstone,
well before it was hip.
Nimoy died Friday of end-stage chronic
obstructive pulmonary disease at his Los
Angeles home, with family at his side, said
his son, Adam Nimoy. He was 83. His final
public statement, last Sunday on Twitter,
was thoughtful and bittersweet.
A life is like a garden. Perfect moments
can be had, but not preserved, except in
memory, he wrote, followed by his customary LLAP signoff shorthand for
Live long and prosper, Spocks catch
phrase.
The reaction to his death was swift, on
Earth and in space.
I loved him like a brother. We will all
miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity
to love, said William Shatner, whose
often-emotional Captain Kirk was balanced
by the composed Nimoy.

WEEKEND JOURNAL

THE DAILY JOURNAL

President Barack Obama said, I loved


Spock.
Long before being nerdy was cool, there
was Leonard Nimoy, Obama said in a statement. Cool, logical, big-eared and levelheaded, the center of Star Treks optimistic,
inclusive vision of humanitys future.
Live Long and Prosper, Mr. (hashtag)
Spock! tweeted Italian astronaut Samantha
Cristoforetti, aboard the International
Space Station.
George Takei, Mr. Sulu of Star Trek,
called Nimoy a great man and friend.
We return you now to the stars, Leonard.
You taught us to Live Long and Prosper,
and you indeed did, friend, Takei said.
In a 2009 interview with the Associated
Press, Nimoy recalled how an early stage
role left him obsessed with pursuing work
that had a social impact.
Ive fulfilled that dream, including Star
Trek, for that matter, he said. If thats
part of the legacy, then Im very pleased
with that. I would hope the work I chose to
do had some reason for being done other
than just simply being a job.
After Star Trek ended, the actor immediately joined the hit adventure series
Mission Impossible as Paris, the mission
teams master of disguises. He also hosted
the syndicated TV series In Search of ... ,
which attempted to probe such mysteries as
the legend of the Loch Ness Monster.
Other notable roles included Israeli leader
Golda Meirs husband opposite Ingrid
Bergman in the TV drama A Woman Called
Golda; he continued to work well into his
twilight years, playing wealthy genius
William Bell in the Fox series Fringe.
He also directed several films, including

the hit comedy Three Men and a Baby, and


appeared in plays and published books of
poems, childrens stories and his own photographs.
But that work was always eclipsed by the
role of the green-blooded space traveler that
took him overnight from bit-part actor to
TV star.
Star Trek, created by Gene Roddenberry
and set in the 23rd century, had an unimpressive debut on NBC on Sept. 8, 1966,
and it struggled during its three seasons to
find an audience beyond youngsters and
teenagers, according to The Complete
Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable
Shows by Tim Brooks and Earle Marsh.
A recently published history of the show,
the three-volume These Are the Voyages
by Marc Kushman, paints a different, far
more positive picture of the shows ratings
and its audience.
The space adventure seemed headed for
oblivion after it was canceled in 1969, but
its dedicated legion of fans, who called
themselves Trekkies, kept its memory alive
with conventions and clubs and constant
demands that the cast be reassembled for a
movie or another TV show.
Trekkies were particularly fond of Spock,
often greeting one another with the Vulcan
salute and Live long motto that Nimoy
was credited with bringing to the character.
He pointed out, however, that the hand gesture was actually derived from one used by
rabbis during Hebraic benedictions.
People identified with Spock because they
recognize in themselves this wish that
they could be logical and avoid the pain of
anger and confrontation, Nimoy concluded
in a 1995 interview.

Embracing the role hed once shunned, he


even lampooned himself on such TV shows
as Futurama, Duckman and The
Simpsons, and in commercials.
When the cast was reassembled for Star
Trek The Motion Picture, in 1979, the
film was a huge hit, and five sequels followed. Nimoy appeared in all of them and
directed two. He also guest-starred as an
older version of himself in some episodes
of the spinoff TV series, Star Trek: The
Next Generation.
In 2009, he was back in a new big-screen
version of Star Trek, this time playing an
older Spock who meets his younger self,
played by Zachary Quinto. Upon the
movies debut, Nimoy told the AP that in his
late 70s he was probably closer than ever to
being as comfortable with himself as the
logical Spock.
I know where Im going, and I know
where Ive been, he said. He reprised the
role in the 2013 sequel Star Trek Into
Darkness.
Born in Boston to Jewish immigrants
from Izyaslav, in what is now Ukraine,
Nimoy was raised in an Italian section of
the city where he said he felt the sting of
anti-Semitism growing up.
At age 17, he was cast in a local production of Clifford Odets Awake and Sing as
the son in a Jewish family.
This role, the young man surrounded by a
hostile and repressive environment, so
touched a responsive chord that I decided to
make a career of acting, he said later.
He won a drama scholarship to Boston
College but eventually dropped out, moved
to California and took acting lessons at the
Pasadena Playhouse.

eyes into history and can share stories


from the time periods they lived through
the ones we read about in textbooks. For
example, my grandparents grew up during
the roaring 20s and the Great Depression,
and were young adults when the United
States was fighting a war in both the
Pacific and in Europe. They married and
started a family during thriving post-war
boom times, dreamed with other Americans
about seeing a man step foot on the moon,
dealt with the disappointment and tragedy
of assassinations of great leaders in the

60s, and were plagued by the threat that


the Cold War swirled around them and the
nightmare of war was once again put in
their households, thanks to Vietnam, this
time on color TV. But they thrived as a family, in business and in their communities.
Their life experience reads like a history
book, or a great American novel on persevering, values and the strength of a family.
Talking with my grandparents about their
memories as a couple, but also as individuals, has not only strengthened my relationship with them, but has also given me new

perspective on growing up. Life really is a


circle and its important to take in every
moment so that when you are a grandparent, you can share stories about the good
ol days with your grandchildren.
Kids, let me tell you about my walks in
the garden at Versailles. ... I learned so
much about life and how to live it.

Chancellors fiancee, Prudence (Omoze


Idehenre), urges Ester to be her own
woman.
Although Ester is presumably the title
character, Chilford, too, is a convert, and
both become increasingly conflicted
between their new faith and their tribal traditions. Tragedy ensues.
Playwright Gurira, who was born in the
United States to Zimbabwean parents and

reared in Zimbabwe, is a promising young


playwright. However, this nearly three-hour
play could benefit from judicious pruning to
reduce it from three acts and two intermissions to two acts and one intermission.
MTC artistic director Jasson Minadakis
directs the outstanding cast, eliciting
strong performances from everyone.
Dialect coach Lynne Soffer deserves credit
for the accents, which are usually under-

standable if one listens carefully.


Despite its length, The Convert makes
for fascinating drama while shedding light
on a part of African history that probably is
unfamiliar to most Americans.
It will continue through March 15 at
Marin Theatre Company, 397 Miller Ave.,
Mill Valley. For tickets and information call

GAS

dards including parts of Canada and

to consumers on Thursday after seeing


wholesale prices shoot up. Prices in
Northern California lagged a day, but
by Friday were also rising; an independent operator with a chain of gas
stations around the San Francisco Bay
area boosted prices 20 cents a gallon
for regular on Friday, to $3.19.
The situation underscores the frustrating complexity of the gasoline
market in California, where state
environmental regulations mandate a
specialized blend of fuel that isnt used
anywhere else in the U.S.
Because of that, California is economically isolated and cant easily or
quickly purchase fuel from outside the
state in a crisis.
Your market in California has about
as much margin for error as Jennifer
Lopezs Academy Awards dress, said
Tom Kloza, global head of energy at
the Oil Price Information Service.
If youre not a refiner who had a
problem with a refinery this month
if youre not Exxon Mobil you

have been rewarded with incredible


profits this month. Thats just the way
the market works.
A unit of the Exxon Mobil refinery
in Torrance thats critical to producing
California-grade gasoline exploded on
Feb. 18, causing a fire and stopping
new production there while the state
investigates. The blast injured four
contractors and rained a fine white ash
on nearby homes and cars. State air
quality regulators confirmed last week
that the ash was not toxic.
At the time, another Tesoro oil
refinery in Martinez, in Northern
California, wasnt producing oil due
to labor unrest.
The two facilities combined make up
17 percent of the states crude oil processing capacity, said Gordon
Schremp, a senior fuels specialist
with
the
California
Energy
Commission.
Refineries in a few other places have
the ability to produce gasoline that
would meet Californias strict stan-

product would have to travel to the


market, a process that could take
weeks.
It takes a while to get some significant supplies from outside, Schremp
said. Its very normal that wed see a
significant price spike.
Gas station owners, meanwhile,
chafed at having to pass the costs on
to consumers. The profit margin for
station owners was 18.5 cents per gallon in California on Friday, a breakeven or money-losing proposition for
many independent retailers, said Jeff
Lenard, a spokesman for the National
Association of Convenience Stores.
In Torrance, station owner Frank
Scotto was forced to increase his
prices by 24 cents per gallon on
Thursday. He hasnt seen such a spike
since he went into the gas station
business in 1967, he said.
I printed out the price change and
Im framing this thing because Ive
never seen this kind of thing in all my
years, said Scotto, who owns a Mobil
and Exxon station.

According to the initial argument in favor of the measure,
should the tax be passed, revenue would be spent to maintain existing educational programs and to attract and retain
quality teachers, among other purposes.
Tax opponents question the districts spending habits,
and are against a tax increase just as Measure B is on the
verge of expiring.
Since 2009, proponents knew the $78 parcel tax wouldnt last forever, but while weve been busy trimming family
budgets, what have they done to trim theirs? Instead of tax
relief we anticipated from $78 down to $0 we now face
a 75 percent increase, according to the opponents rebuttal
of arguments favoring the tax.
When going back to basics is the sensible approach,
proponents propose splurging by expanding design, engineering, [and] music, according to the opponents document.
Silicon Valley Taxpayers Association President Mark
Hinkle; Harland Harrison, secretary of the Libertarian Party
of San Mateo County; and San Carlos resident Michael
Stogner signed the rebuttal to arguments in favor of the tax.
School advocates note in their argument that the group
opposing the tax are the same organizations and residents
that have traditionally opposed similar measures across the
county.
Measure Ps few opponents most of whom dont live
in San Carlos routinely submit arguments against education measure throughout San Mateo County, said the rebuttal to arguments against the tax. We respect their right to
an opposing view, but we strongly disagree about the need
for local funding.
Should voters not approve the tax, advocates claim the
district will lose $9.5 million over the next six years,
which could result in cuts to teachers and various education
programs.
Small school districts like San Carlos and Burlingame
rely on local funding similar to Measure P because state
government wont provide the funding needed for the high
quality schools our community expects, according to the
argument supporting the tax. Measure P is the only solution for local school funds that the state cant take away.
Opponents argue that the district spends more money on
personnel than the Burlingame Elementary School District,
but has similar student achievement levels.
Clearly, more money does not equal higher test scores or
better education, according to the oppositions argument.
Alternatively, advocates rely on the success of San Carlos
schools to bolster their argument in favor of the tax.
The results are clear. Since 2003, voter-approved local
funding like Measure P has helped make our schools among
the best in the state, according to the proponents argument.
The proposed tax includes an exemption for any senior
residents living in the district. Two-thirds of voters would
need to approve of the tax for it to pass, according to an
impartial analysis of the measure.
