SAN FRANCISCO Authorities


have identified the dismembered body
found in a suitcase on a San Francisco
street.
The San Francisco medical examiner
said Wednesday that it was still trying
to determine the cause of death for 58year-old Omar Shahwan. The body
found Jan. 28 in the roller suitcase
contained no head or hands, making
identification difficult. The medical
examiner identified Shahwan with
DNA testing. Shahwans family in
Vallejo, California reported him missing on Feb. 3.
Police arrested Shahwans former
roommate Mark Andrus on Jan. 31.
But the 54-year-old was released three
days later for lack of evidence. Andrus
died over the weekend in an undisclosed San Francisco hospital of a
drug-related cause. No arrests have

Duck Dynasty turning their tale into


a song and dance musical on stage in
Sin City.
Even Broadway producer Michael
David has been on the receiving end of
inevitable surprise and, sometimes,
concern when people learned of his
involvement in the Duck Commander
Musical.
What were thespian blue-staters
doing getting involved with duckhunting entrepreneurs from a decidedly
red state? Especially duck-hunting
entrepreneurs whose patriarch has
been quoted vilifying homosexual
behavior.
If theater people are storytellers,
God knows we dont only tell stories
about people we agree with, David
said.
The man behind the musical Jersey
Boys, his Dodgers Theatricals group
and music executive Tommy Mottola
teamed up with the Ducks to bridge
two worlds.
There certainly will be beards. And
the usual family antics seen on the
show. But there will be no do-si-doing
around any of the controversy involving the family on Duck Dynasty,
cables highest-rated reality show.
The good, the bad and the inbetween are all said to be part of the

Sea lion pup rescued from


road near Fort Funston
By Hannah Albarazi
BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

A silky brown California sea lion pup was


rescued Tuesday morning after being found
on the side of the road near Fort Funston in
San Francisco.
According to Golden Gate National
Recreation Area spokeswoman Alexandra
Picavet, two passersby stopped to help the
sea lion pup when they spotted it on the
edge of Skyline Boulevard just south of the
turnoff to Great Highway.
The pup had crossed Skyline Boulevard
and was nearing Lake Merced when he was
spotted.
At about 7:10 a. m. , a National Park
Service ranger was driving along Skyline
Boulevard when he witnessed the pair trying
to protect the pup. The ranger stopped his
vehicle and assisted the two good
Samaritans on the side of the road, according to Picavet.
The ranger positioned his vehicle in the

lane of traffic to ensure no passing vehicles

struck the sea lion. The group loaded the pup


into a plastic tote for transport.
Picavet said the sea lion was combative
during the rescue and even bit the blankets
that the ranger was using to guide the pup
into the tote.
However, once the sea lion was safely
contained, the ranger was able to transport
it to the Marine Mammal Center in the
Marin Headlands.
The young pup has been named Percevero
and is one of 115 California sea lion pups
that are being treated at the Marine Mammal
Center for being underweight.
Percevero weighs 28 pounds, instead of a
normal weight of around 40 pounds, Picavet
said.
While there are no visible injuries, the sea
lion pup is receiving medical assessment
and treatment at the Marine Mammal
Center, according to Picavet.
According to the Marine Mammal Center,
this is the third year in a row that the center
is seeing unusual numbers of sea lion pups
stranded and starving.

Bound by state and federal laws governing


cellphone utilities, the Belmont City
Council voted to allow AT&T to keep an
existing wireless facility in a residential
neighborhood and avoid the possibility of
the mobile giant trying to negotiate a deal
to locate on a private residence.
The council opted to overturn the
Planning Commissions denial of AT&Ts
request and allow it to modify a utility pole
in the public right-of-way on Notre Dame
Avenue that is now overwrought with wires,
boxes and equipment, not all of which were
approved by the city.
AT&T initially received approval to operate a wireless facility mounted on the public
utility pole in 2006, however, it has made
considerable additions to expand coverage
and keep with changing technology,
according to a video of Tuesdays council
meeting.
Yet the company failed to obtain entitlements from the city before making the
changes residents say are an eyesore and,
in 2010, Belmont officials ordered they

bring it up to code.
In May 2013, AT&T turned to the city with
a proposal to consolidate the ancillary
equipment, paint it brown to match the
wood pole and place underground most of
the existing overhead cable wires crossing
Notre Dame Avenue, according to a city staff
report.
In December, the Planning Commission
denied its request along with an alternate
proposal to relocate the wireless equipment
onto a private residence at 1920 Notre Dame
Ave.
While wireless facilities are allowed in
the public right-of-way, they are generally
precluded from locating on private singlefamily residential properties and AT&Ts
proposal would have been a first. After the
council agreed to let it keep equipment atop
the current pole, AT&T withdrew its request
to relocate on the neighboring property.
Al t h o ug h t h e co un ci l memb ers were
frustrated with AT&Ts actions, they are
bound by rules supporting wireless facilities such as the California Public Utility
Code as well as federal laws such as the

anything about the prior eight hours,
according to the District Attorneys Office.
He pleaded no contest to felony evading

Average California gas
prices rise 7 cents in January
The price of gasoline has gone up by 7
cents in the last month to a statewide average of $2. 65, the Northern California
branch of the American Automobile
Association announced.
Reduced production associated with refinery maintenance in preparation for high
demand in the summer driving season may
be a factor in the rising gas prices, as well
as ongoing labor negotiations with the
United Steelworkers union, according to
AAA.
Roughly 5, 200 union members have
gone on strike at oil refineries responsible
for processing more than 10 percent of
petroleum products consumed in the United
States, according to AAA.
San Francisco and San Rafael currently
have some of the highest gas prices in the
Bay Area, with an average cost of $2.75 per
gallon.
Some of the lowest gas prices in the
region were in Santa Cruz at $2.56 per gallon, and Monterey at $2.59 per gallon.
The average price for a gallon of regular
unleaded gasoline is $2.62 in Northern
California and $2.67 in the Bay Area. The
average price per gallon in San Mateo is

Commuter with measles


prompts BART warning
Officials in Northern California on
Wednesday warned Bay Area Rapid Transit
commuters that they may have been
exposed to measles.
Contra Costa County public health officials say someone was diagnosed with the
disease after riding BART trains between
Lafayette and San Francisco during the
morning and evening commutes Feb. 4
through Feb. 6.
Officials said Wednesday that the patient
also dined at E&O Kitchen and Bar on Feb.
4.
The state Department of Public Health
said it does not know how many San
Francisco Bay Area residents have measles
vaccines. The number of parents declining
to vaccinate their children has risen in the
region and the country in recent years,
though the majority is vaccinated.
Health officials said Wednesday that
those without vaccinations who came into
contact with the BART commuter are a
high risk of coming down with measles.
People displaying symptoms are urged to
seek medical attention immediately.
Symptoms include high fever, runny noses,
coughing and watery red eyes and can begin
from one to three weeks after exposure. An
infected person is contagious for several
days before and after the rash appears.
Health officials say the risk of vaccinated
commuters contracting measles is highly
unlikely.

Gavin Newsom to raise money for governor bid


By Juliet Williams
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO California Lt. Gov.


Gavin Newsom, who gained national attention as mayor of San Francisco for ordering
then-illegal gay marriage licenses to be
issued, said Wednesday that he will begin raising money to run for governor in 2018, a
position he has long sought.
The announcement from the 47-year-old
Democrat comes just a few months after he
was re-elected to a second four-year term as the
states second-highest elected official.
Newsom said last month that he would not
pursue a U.S. Senate seat, creating anticipation he would seek the states top post.
Newsom has been a controversial national
figure since 2004 when he ordered the San
Francisco city clerk to ignore state law at the
time and give marriage licenses to gay couples. Newsom served seven years as mayor.
In an interview Wednesday, Newsom said he
will spend the next few years raising money
and devising a grand strategy to restore
Californias greatness. He said Gov. Jerry
Brown deserves credit for restoring the states
fiscal solvency, and the next step is a vision
for its future.

Partial West Coast port


shutdown looms; contract talks stall
LOS ANGELES Troubles on the West
Coast waterfront are getting worse.
Amid an increasingly damaging labor dispute, 29 West Coast seaports which handle
about $1 trillion of goods annually will be
mostly closed four of the next five days.
The announcement came Wednesday from
the association representing companies
that operate marine terminals where dockworkers move containers of goods on and
off massive ocean-going vessels, eventually transferring the containers onto trucks or
trains for distribution nationwide.
Companies said they wont hire crews to
load or unload ships Thursday, Saturday,
Sunday or Monday when theyd have to
pay Presidents Day holiday or weekend

I want to take the time to do it right. One


thing you cant manufacture is time, and you
cant get it back. So many mistakes in politics and in campaigns are made because of
those constraints, Newsom said. And I want
the opportunity to look out in to the future
with a different perspective, with a more sustainable perspective.
Opening a campaign committee nearly four
years before the election allows Newsom to
begin collecting large checks, boost his
name recognition and portray himself as the
front-runner. He has more than $3 million
remaining in his campaign account for lieutenant governor after cruising to re-election
in November. He is, I think, trying to clear
the field, said Sherry Bebitch-Jeffe, a senior
political science fellow at the University of
Southern California. Hes going to need to
get name recognition. If hes serious, hes
made his decision, he wants to run, the earlier
hes out there, the more likely he is to gain
name recognition.
Other potential Democratic candidates Gavin Newsom last year became the highest-ranking Democrat to challenge Gov. Jerry Browns

Gitmo prison closure hampered


by freed detainees turn to IS
By Deb Riechmann
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON During six years behind


bars at Guantanamo Bay, Abdul Rauf insisted he was a lowly Taliban foot soldier who
delivered bread and tea to combatants, even
though he was really a corps commander. He
was released in 2007 and sent home to
Afghanistan. Until this week, he was working as the top recruiter in Afghanistan for
Islamic State militants.
Rauf, who was killed along with seven
others in a U.S. drone strike on Monday,
and detainees like him who have returned to
the battlefield are complicating President
Barack Obamas hopes of closing the detention center for terrorism suspects on the
U.S. Navy base in Cuba. The administration
says the prison is costly, damages
Americas relationship with key allies and
provides extremists a propaganda tool to
woo recruits.
Obama has vowed since he was a presidential candidate to close the detention center,
but members of Congress have thwarted that
ambition, saying the detainees would return
to the fight. They also have argued that governments where the detainees would be
released in the region couldnt be expected
to keep track of them and prevent them from
becoming active again.
Besides Rauf, one or more of the five
Taliban detainees swapped for Sgt. Bowe
Bergdahl may have already been in touch
with members of the al-Qaida-linked
Haqqani network. Qatari officials promised

activities and keep them from traveling outside Qatar for a year. That year ends May 31
and lawmakers are wondering what will happen to them.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest has
said the five are still in Qatar, but he says
efforts to keep them from working with terror organizations have been updated to
reflect concerns about their contacts. Qatari
Foreign Minister Khalid bin Mohammed alAttiyah said at an event in Washington last

week that the five continue to be closely


monitored.
Those reassurances have not satisfied
Republican lawmakers, especially in light
of confirmation Tuesday of Raufs death.
The fact that Abdul Rauf, a former
Guantanamo detainee, was acting as a
recruiter for IS in Afghanistan underscores
the danger of releasing detainees without
sufficient assurances that they wont reengage in terrorism, said Sen. Kelly
Ayotte, R-N.H.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. Police are trying


to determine whether hate played any role in
the killing of three Muslims, a crime they
said was sparked by a neighbors long-simmering anger over parking and noise inside
their condominium complex.
Craig Stephen Hicks, 46, describes himself as a gun toting atheist. Neighbors say
he always seemed angry and confrontational. His ex-wife said he was obsessed with the
shooting-rampage movie Falling Down,
and showed no compassion at all for other
people.
His current wife, Karen Hicks, said he
champions the rights of others and said
the killings had nothing do with religion
or the victims faith. Later Wednesday, she
issued another statement, saying shes
divorcing him.
Hicks appeared in court Wednesday on
charges of first-degree murder in the deaths

Tuesday of Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, his


wife Yusor Mohammad, 21, and her sister
Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19. He pleaded indigence and was appointed a public
defender.
Officers were summoned by a neighbor
who called 911 reporting five to 10 shots
and the sound of people screaming.
The womens father, Mohammad AbuSalha, said police told him each was shot in
the head inside the couples apartment, and
that he, for one, is convinced it was a hate
crime.
The media here bombards the American
citizen with Islamic, Islamic, Islamic terrorism and makes people here scared of us and
hate us and want us out. So if somebody has
any conflict with you, and they already hate
you, you get a bullet in the head, said AbuSalha, who is a psychiatrist.
The killings are fueling outrage among
people who blame anti-Muslim rhetoric for
hate crimes. A Muslim advocacy organization pressed authorities to investigate possible religious bias.

Obama wants fresh


war powers, says IS
group going to lose
By David Espo
and Nedra Pickler
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Vowing that


Islamic State forces are going to
lose, President Barack Obama
urged Congress on Wednesday to
authorize military action against
terrorists who are cutting a swath
across the Middle East. Yet he ruled
out large-scale U.S. ground combat
operations reminiscent of Iraq and
Afghanistan.
Im convinced that the United
States should not get dragged back
into another prolonged ground
war, the president said at the
White House as he set Congress on
a path to its first war-powers vote
in 13 years.
Despite his words of reassurance,
initial reaction in Congress
amounted to bipartisan skepticism, with much of the dissatisfaction centered on his attempt to find
a political middle ground with
respect to ground forces.
Republicans expressed unhappiness that he had chosen to exclude
any long-term commitment of
ground forces, while some
Democrats voiced dismay that he
had opened the door to deployment
at all.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., also
said Obama had ruled out air sup-

port for U.S.-trained rebels battling Syrian President Bashar


Assad, adding, Thats immoral.
Under Obamas proposal, the use
of military force against Islamic
State fighters would be authorized
for three years, unbounded by
national borders. The fight could
be extended to any closely related
successor entity to the Islamic
State organization that has overrun
parts of Iraq and Syria, imposed a
stern form of Sharia law and killed
several hostages it has taken,
Americans among them.
Make no mistake. This is a difficult mission, Obama said in
seeking action against a group that
he said threatens Americas own
security. He said it will take time to
dislodge the terrorists, especially
from urban areas. But our coalition is on the offensive. ISIL is on
the defensive, and ISIL is going to
lose.
The 2002 congressional authorization that preceded the Americanled invasion of Iraq would be
repealed under the White House
proposal, a step some Republicans
were unhappy to see. But a separate
authorization that was approved by
Congress after the Sept. 11, 2001,
terror attacks would remain in
force, to the consternation of some
Democrats.
At the heart of the debate, the

REUTERS

struggle to define any role for
American ground forces is likely to
determine the outcome of the
administrations request for legislation. White House spokesman
Josh Earnest said the proposal was
intentionally ambiguous on that
point to give the president flexibility, although the approach also
was an attempt to bridge a deep
divide in Congress.
While asking lawmakers to bar
long-term, large-scale ground combat operations like those in
Afghanistan and Iraq, Obama said
he wants the flexibility for ground
combat operations in other more

limited circumstances. Those


include rescue missions, intelligence collection and the use of special operations forces in possible
military action against Islamic
State leaders.
While he proposed legislation to
terminate in three years, Obama
said, It is not a timetable. It is not
announcing that the mission is
completed at any given period.
What it is saying is that Congress
should revisit the issue at the
beginning of the next presidents
term.
Whatever the outcome, Obamas
request puts Congress on the path

toward a vote that could reverberate


unpredictably for years.
A post-9/11 request from thenPresident George W. Bush for
authorization to use military force
against Iraq was intensely controversial, and it played a role in
Obamas successful campaign for
the White House in 2008.
His chief rival for the Democratic
nomination, then-New York Sen.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, voted in
favor of the Bush proposal.
Obama, who was not in Congress
at the time of the vote, said later he
would have opposed it, and he made
it an issue in the presidential race.

Congress clears Keystone XL pipeline bill, setting up veto


By Dina Cappiello
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON

The
Republican-controlled Congress
approved a bill Wednesday to
construct the Keystone XL oil
pipeline, setting up a confrontation with President Barack
Obama, who has threatened to
veto the measure.
The House voted 270-152 to
send the bill to the president,

endorsing changes made by the


Senate that stated climate change
was real and not a hoax, and oil
sands should no longer be
exempt from a tax used to cleanup
oil spills.
Only one Republican voted
against the measure.
But neither chamber has
enough support to overcome a
veto, and supporters were already
strategizing on how to secure the
pipelines approval using other
legislative means.

The evidence is in. The case


ought to be closed, said Rep.
Fred Upton, R-Mich., chairman
of the House Energy and
Commerce Committee.
For Republicans, the bills
passage capped weeks of debate
on a top priority after they took
control of Congress last month.
Hours before the vote, they prodded Democrats who did not take
their side.

those issues.
Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla. ,
said the bill was another example
of Republicans prioritizing legislation to demonstrate a message, regardless of its chances of
becoming
law.
The
vote
Wednesday marked the 11th
attempt by Republicans to
advance the pipeline.
The last few years have been
like a hamster on a wheel spinning and spinning and not getting anywhere, said Hastings,
who at one point held up a toy

that looked like the rodent.


First proposed in 2008, the
pipeline has come to symbolize
the differences between the parties on energy and environmental matters, and it is likely to be
the first of many skirmishes with
the White House.
Republicans and the oil industry have argued the $8 billion
infrastructure project is about
jobs and boosting energy security, by importing oil from a
friendly neighbor and shipping
it to domestic refineries subject
to stringent environmental regulations.

FireEye up in fourth quarter
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO FireEye Inc., the high-profile computer security company called in to investigate massive
hacks at Sony Pictures and Anthem, reported fourth-quarter
earnings Wednesday that show its business is growing but
profit so far remains elusive.
Results were better than Wall Street had expected, however. Shares jumped 6 percent in after-hours trading.
FireEye, based in Milpitas added customers and boosted
billings over the last year as major U.S. retailers, banks and
other organizations suffered a slew of high-profile cyberattacks. FireEyes Mandiant division was hired in a number of
cases to help assess damage and trace the hackers responsible.

M-A crushes Sequoia


By Nathan Mollat

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The Menlo-Atherton boys soccer team


started each half slowly as the Bears faced
Sequoia in Redwood City Wednesday afternoon.
The Bears nished each half with a ourish, however, as they stomped the
Cherokees 6-1, avenging a 1-0 loss to
Sequoia Jan. 16.
We knew we could score, said M-A striker Mario Rodriguez, who recorded a hat
trick. Just based on the way weve been
playing.
M-A (9-2 PAL Bay, 12-3 overall) scored
three goals in each half against Sequoia and
have been on a goal-scoring tear of late. In
the Bears last two games, they have
outscored their opponents 14-1. They have
scored four or more goals in four of their last
ve games.
More importantly, however, the win
moves the Bears closer to the Peninsula
Athletic League Bay Division championship. Going into Wednesdays game, MA had a one-point lead over second-place
Burlingame.
Obviously, every game we can stay in
front, the better the situation is for us, said
M-A coach Jacob Pickard.
Sequoia (6-4-1) controlled the action for
the rst 10 minutes of each half before M-A
methodically turned the tables and dominated the nal 30 minutes.
In the rst half, M-A had several quality
looks, but came up empty early on. But
once the Bears scored in the 28th minute,
the oodgates opened as they scored three
goals during an eight minute span.
Rodriguez opened the scoring for the
Bears off a corner kick in the 28th minute.
Kyle Smith served the cross to the far right
post and found a lurking Rodriguez, who
headed it home for a 1-0 lead.
The Bears doubled their lead ve minutes
later, again off a corner kick. This time,
however, Kyle Bryan had to work a bit harder. Hector Tellez sent the cross into the
Sequoia penalty box, where the Cherokees

Former UNLV coach


Jerry Tarkanian dies
By Tim Dahlberg
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAS VEGAS He couldnt stop fighting


the NCAA any more than he could give up
chewing towels courtside. Jerry Tarkanian
built a basketball dynasty in the desert, but
it was his decades-long battle with the
NCAA that defined him far more than the
wins and losses.
The coach who won a national title at
UNLV and made the school synonymous
with basketball died Wednesday after several years of health issues. He was 84.
Tarkanian put the run in the Runnin
Rebels, taking them to four Final Fours and
winning a national championship in 1990
with one of the most dominant college
teams ever. His teams were as flamboyant as
the city, with light shows and fireworks for
pregame introductions and celebrities jockeying for position on the so-called Gucci
Row courtside.
He ended up beating the NCAA, too, collecting a $2. 5 million settlement after
suing the organization for trying to run him

But he was bitter to the
end about the way the
NCAA treated him while
coaching.
Theyve been my tormentors my whole life,
Tarkanian said at his
retirement news conferJerry Tarkanian ence in 2002. It will
never stop.
The night before he died, fans attending
UNLVs game against Fresno State draped
towels over the statue of Tarkanian outside
the campus arena that depicts Tarkanian
chewing on one of his famous towels.
Tarkanians wife, Lois, said her husband
hospitalized Monday with an infection
and breathing difficulties fought health
problems for the last six years with the
same courage and tenacity he showed
throughout his life. His death came just days
after the death of another Hall of Fame
coach, North Carolinas Dean Smith.

was named the California
Interscholastic Federation (CIF)
Model Coach of the Year for football, it
was announced Wednesday.
According the CIF website, A model
coach must have demonstrated and taught
the six core ethical values: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness,
caring and good citizenship.
More importantly, to be considered, a
coach must have a minimum of 10 years
of active coaching at the high school
level.
Sell is the third
Aragon coach to be
honored. Girls basketball coach
Annette GennaroTrimble received the
award in 2009, while
cross country and
track and field coach
Bill Daskarolis was
honored in 2012.
Youre always
pleasantly surprised
when you get honored like this, Sell said.
Sell, who also serves as Aragons athletic director and teaches physical education, checks all the boxes. A 1984 graduate of Aragon, Sell played a year of football and two years of rugby at St. Marys
College before returning to Aragon in
1989 to serve as an assistant coach under
the legendary Britt Williams. He took
over the varsity football program in
2000 and has compiled a record of 10847-1 in his 14 seasons.
Coach Sell is an excellent role model
as he lives and breathes Aragons foundation of respect to self, teammates, peers,
community and family. He epitomizes
what one wants in their coach and athletic director, the CIF said in a press
release.
And Sell is just as concerned about
what happens in the Peninsula Athletic
League and the Central Coast Section.

Celebrated Little League


team stripped of U.S. title
By Don Babwin
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO A Little League team that captured the attention of the nation and the hearts
of its hometown was stripped of its national
title Wednesday after an investigation
revealed that team officials had falsified
boundaries so they could add ineligible players to the roster.
Only last summer, the all-black Jackie
Robinson West team was the toast of Chicago
and was honored with trips to San Francisco
and to the White House.
But the sports governing body announced
that team officials had engaged in a Little
League version of political gerrymandering.
Instead of politicians redrawing district maps
to pick up votes, it was local league officials
who changed the boundaries that determined
where players must live. And after learning
that their scheme had been exposed, they
scrambled to persuade surrounding leagues to
go along with what they had done.
This is so heartbreaking, said Stephen D.
Keener, president and CEO of Little League
International. It is a sad day for a bunch of
kids who we have come to really like ... who

did nothing wrong. But we cannot tolerate


the actions of some of the adults involved
here.
The organization suspended the manager,
Darold Butler, and suspended the team from
Little League tournament play until the local
leagues president and treasurer have been
replaced. A district official who is believed to
have helped change the boundaries was also
removed.
All of the teams victories were thrown out,
meaning that the wins will be awarded to other
teams. Mountain Ridge Little League, the
team from Las Vegas that lost to Jackie
Robinson West in the national championship
game, will be awarded the title.
Parents were angered by the news, saying
their children were being unfairly punished.
The boys had no inside dealings ... about
any borders, and I as a mother had no idea there
were any (questions about) boundaries, said
Venisa Green, who was driving her son,
Brandon, to school Wednesday when they
were blindsided by the news as it came over
the radio.

Warriors hold off Minnesota


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Warriors 94, T-wolves 91

MINNEAPOLIS Andre Iguodala and


Leandro Barbosa led a dominant effort from
the Golden State Warriors reserves and Klay
Thompson hit a big 3-pointer down the
stretch to close out a long road trip with a
94-91 victory over the Minnesota
Timberwolves on Wednesday night.
Iguodala scored just eight points on 4-for4 shooting and Barbosa had 10 points, but
they spearheaded an energized second unit
that picked up the slack for their sluggish
starters. Stephen Curry had 25 points on 9for-23 shooting for Golden State (42-9),
which goes into the All-Star break with the
best record in the NBA.
Kevin Martin scored 21 points and Ricky
Rubio had 18 points, nine rebounds and five
assists for the Timberwolves (11-42), who
rallied from a 14-point deficit in the fourth
quarter to tie the game.
The Warriors were playing their fifth

game in eight nights and


the last of a four-game
road trip before the AllStar break, and coach
Steve Kerr recognized
that by taking the team
bowling on the off day in
the Twin Cities on
Tuesday rather than holdAndre Iguodala ing a practice.
The Warriors missed
nine of their first 11 3-pointers, but their
hard-nosed second unit turned up the energy
in the second quarter to get them going.
Iguodala and Barbosa beat the younger
Wolves down the court for easy layups in
transition and Marreese Speights and Shaun
Livingston helped put the defensive clamps
on a Wolves bench squad that struggles to
move the ball when Rubio goes to the
bench.

They were central figures in a 14-4 run in


the first half and a 12-4 spurt at the start of
the fourth that gave the Warriors just
enough cushion to survive. Golden State led
Minnesota 32-14 in bench points and shot
17 for 30 from the field.
Even with Curry missing eight of his 10
3s, Golden State led 85-71 lead with 7:30 to
play.
But Rubio led a charge late. He scored
seven points during a 12-0 run that brought
them back and Thaddeus Young converted a
layup to tie the score at 89 with 1:35 to
play.
Thompson drilled a 3 on the next possession and Wolves center Nikola Pekovic
missed a layup with 7.9 seconds to go that
would have put Minnesota in front.
Pekovic had 17 points and 13 rebounds
and Thompson finished with 14 points.

Tip-ins
Warri o rs : F Draymond Green had three

points on 1-for-6 shooting and 13 rebounds


after being listed as questionable with an
ankle injury. ... Kerr, who will coach the
Western Conference All-Stars, said he is
most looking forward to coaching Tim
Duncan. Thats gonna be hilarious, he

Lawmaker: NCAA should fire


chief over Penn State sanctions
HARRISBURG, Pa. The Pennsylvania lawmaker whose
lawsuit led the NCAA to lift the last of Penn States sanctions stemming from the Jerry Sandusky scandal says the
organizations president, Mark Emmert, should be fired.
State Sen. Jake Corman said 4,900 pages of case documents he released Wednesday show that in 2012 the NCAA
exceeded its legal authority under Emmert and misled Penn
State to get school officials to agree to the sanctions.
Corman says a thorough investigation by the NCAAs
executive committee should find that the organization has a
culture problem and that Emmert lacks the credibility to lead
college sports governing body.

PAL commissioner Terry Stogner said he leans heavily on
Sell, when I need a rational voice.
He has really involved himself in the world of athletics beyond the Aragon campus, Stogner said. Its understanding the big picture and not just your sport. I think
thats where Steve fits in.
Sell sits on CCSs Athletic Directors Advisory
Committee (ADAC) as well as the Executive Committee.
The CIF Model Coach Award is for Steves accomplishments, dedication and service as a football coach.
However, it is hard to separate his positive coaching role
as a coach without acknowledging the other areas of leadership that also reflect his effectiveness on the field,
said CCS commissioner Nancy Lazenby Blaser in a press
release. The attributes he brings to the field as a coach,
are also personified in his dedicated service to the student-athletes throughout the CCS that he serves in these
other leadership capacities. We are so proud of Steves
selection for this very prestigious State Award.
Having covered the PAL for the last 13 years, Sell has
developed into one of my go-to sources when I have questions about not only football, but any question as it
relates to the PAL or CCS. With the retirement of Bill
Gray from Terra Nova at the end of the 2014 school year,
Sell becomes the longest tenured football coach in the
PAL and he is treated accordingly, but he does not lord
over the rest of the league. In fact, its his genial attitude
that allows not only other coaches and athletic directors
to come to him with questions and comments, but his

failed to clear it out of danger. The ball ended up on Bryans
foot and he did the rest. He won a pair of 50-50 balls and
then touched the ball to his left to create some space. With
some room to breathe, Bryan whipped his left foot through
the ball into the far right side of the net.
It was a really good goal for him, Pickard said of
Bryans goal. Its his rst minutes (of playing time) since
Burlingame (Jan. 23).
Three minutes later, it appeared M-A had the game locked
up. Rodriguez won a loose ball about 25 yards from the
Sequoia net and broke in on goal before being taken down
by a defender in the box to draw a penalty kick. Rodriguez
then nished what he started by side-footing a shot to the
right corner to give the Bears a 3-0 lead at halftime.
Despite trailing 3-0, Sequoia seemed determined to make
a game of it in the second half. With two of the Bears top
three scoring threats on the bench to start the second half,
the Cherokees took advantage. They pressed hard in the
opening minutes of the second period. Just a minute in,
they had a dangerous chance, but a through ball from Audel
Salas went nowhere. Three minutes later, Anthony Pulido
made a strong run before being taken down just outside the
penalty box. The ensuing free kick, however, was cleared
away by the M-A defense.
The Cherokees nally connected in the 48th minute with

Salas nding the back of the net to cut their decit to 3-1
with plenty of time remaining. Minutes later, Sequoia had
a prime chance to pull even closer when Pulido ran down a
ball along the sideline and whipped a cross into the penalty box that found Daniel Spottiswood but his strong
header went right to the M-A goalkeeper.
With about 20 minutes remaining in the game, Pickard
re-inserted Rodriguez and Jesus Ortega back into the game
and the Bears offense immediately perked up. The two were
clearly the best players on the eld in this particular game
and they, along with Smith, torched the Cherokees over
the nal 15 minutes.
Any thought of a Sequoia comeback was quickly extinguished when Rodriguez completed his hat trick in the
68th minute. He received a pass about 40 yard out, turned,
shrugged off one defender, beat two more and then slotted a
shot past a diving Cherokees goalkeeper and into the far
right corner of the net to put M-A up 4-1.
Smith got in on the goal-scoring action two minutes
later off a free kick. M-A defender Patrick Quinn took the
free kick from mideld and put a ball into the penalty box.
Smith icked the ball with his head and he roofed it into
the net to give M-A a 5-1 lead.
Ortega rounded out the scoring in stoppage time when he
was taken down in the penalty box and buried the ensuing
penalty kick on what turned out to be the nal play of the
game.

Tarkanian said in a family statement. You will be missed Tark.
Tarkanian was an innovator who
preached defense yet loved to watch
his teams run. And run they did,
beginning with his first Final Four
team in 1976-77, which scored
more than 100 points in 23 games
in an era before both the shot clock
and the 3-point shot.
He was a winner in a city built on
losers, putting a small commuter
school on the national sporting
map and making UNLV sweatshirts
a hot item around the country. His
teams helped revolutionize the way
the college game was played, with
relentless defense forcing turnovers
that were quickly converted into
baskets at the other end.
He recruited players other coaches
often wouldnt touch, building
teams with junior college transfers
and kids from checkered backgrounds. His teams at UNLV were
national powerhouses almost every
year, yet Tarkanian never seemed to
get his due when the discussion
turned to the all-time coaching
greats.
That changed in 2013 when the

what had happened, but in
Washington,
White
House
spokesman Josh Earnest suggested that it was the adults who let
down the boys.
It was a stunning end to a story
that began last summer as the team
marched through the Little League

problems and weakened by a variety


of ills, he went on stage with a
walker at the induction ceremony.
Tarkanians career spanned 31
years with three Division I schools,
beginning at Long Beach State and
ending at Fresno State, where
Tarkanian himself played in 1954
and 1955. Only twice did his teams
fail to win at least 20 games in a
season.
But it was at UNLV where his reputation was made, both as a coach
of teams that often scored in the
triple digits and as an outlaw not
afraid to stand up to the powerful
NCAA. He went 509-105 in 19 seasons with the Runnin Rebels
before finally being forced out by
the university after a picture was
published in the Las Vegas ReviewJournal showing some of his players in a hot tub with a convicted
game fixer.
UNLV was already on probation at
the time, just two years after winning the national title and a year
after the Runnin Rebels led by
Larry Johnson, Stacey Augmon and
Greg Anthony went undefeated
into the Final Four before being
upset in the semifinals by the same
Duke team they beat by 30 points
for the championship the year
before. Even after losing four of his
starters off that team and being on
probation, Tarkanian went 26-2 in
his final year at UNLV.
His overall record is listed several
different ways because the NCAA
took away wins from some of his
teams, but the family preferred to
go with his on court record of 784202.

tournament. Their odyssey ended


with a loss to South Korea in the
world championship game in
South
Williamsport,
Pennsylvania.
When the Chicago team returned
home, the boys were treated as
conquering heroes. Thousands of
people lined city streets to catch a
glimpse of them as they were
paraded by bus from their home
field to a downtown park. The team
was treated to a trip to a major
league World Series game in San
Francisco and then a visit with
President Barack Obama and first
lady Michelle Obama at the White
House.
Behind the scenes, Keener said,

the investigation was creating a


different story after a coach from a
nearby suburb alleged that Jackie
Robinson West had violated rules
by poaching top suburban players.
The investigation, which was
first reported by DNAinfo.com,
appeared to end in December when
the national organization said it
had uncovered no violations.
Officials said they would reopen
the inquiry if new information surfaced. About that time, the organization learned of questions about
boundary maps involving multiple leagues. The investigation
resumed.
In an interview, Keener said

Jackie Robinson West officials


expanded the boundaries of their
league at the expense of three
neighboring leagues, so that the
boundaries included the homes of
several players on the team who
would not otherwise have been eligible.
The investigation found that at
least one district official who had
helped redraw the map went to the
other teams to ask that they go
along with what the team had
done, Keener said.
They (said) We know we took
your territory. We shouldnt have
done it, but will you give it to us
to essentially legitimize it,
Keener said.

Marc Blakeman, regional vice

increasing the companys coverage area. The pole was originally
approved to house equipment

additions seek to keep with highspeed advancements such as 3G

state studies also show between


40 percent and 50 percent of people opted out of landlines and
rely on cellphones, Blakeman
said.
The council sympathized with
the communitys needs for cellphone coverage, but urged AT&T
to work collaboratively.
The citizens are talking about
that they want the cell coverage
and they want the data, but they
want good neighbors and a good
business to work with, Mayor
David Braunstein said.

Monday night, the Daly City
Council unanimously endorsed the
countys effort to make the mountain a priority for conservation

Daly City parcels that will be dedicated to the county for conservation.
Daly City Councilman David

Additional funding will help

Canepa is on the air quality

This is a clear message that San

said.
The park is especially critical
for Daly City residents, he said,
who live in the countys densest
city.
Open space is vital to quality of
life. The ultimate goal is to see no

maintain it as an urban oasis,
Canepa said.

Many artists have drawn inspiration, drive from nature


By Dean Fosdick
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Gardens have held a special place in


many artists lives, and their creativity
was much the better for it.
Writer Sir Walter Scott gardened to distance his mind from debt. George Bernard
Shaw crafted plays in a sophisticated yet
modest garden hut. Impressionist painter
Claude Monet treasured his kitchen garden.
Gardens were really extensions of their
art, said Derek Fell, author of the new
Monets Palate Cookbook (GibbsSmith).
Some dug deep into the mechanics of
gardening. Shaw, for example, was a vegetarian who grew vegetables, tended an
orchard and raised bees at his rural
Hertfordshire home in England, dubbed
Shaws Corner.
He wrote Pygmalion and Saint Joan,
two of his most celebrated plays, in a
small but intricate writers shed; it sat on
a home-built turntable that could be rotat-

He studied how everything grew very


carefully, not only with his artists eye but also with
his mind as a social and environmental reformer.
Jackie Bennett, author of The Writers Garden

ed to follow the warming sun in winter or


the cool shade in summer.
Shaw died at 94 after falling off a ladder
while pruning a fruit tree.
John Ruskin, a Victorian-era art critic,
painter and conservationist, was another
hands-on gardener.
He studied how everything grew very
carefully, not only with his artists eye but
also with his mind as a social and environmental reformer, said Jackie Bennett,
author of The Writers Garden (Francis
Lincoln Ltd., 2014).
No words, no thoughts can measure the
possible change for good which energetic
and tender care of the wild herbs of the
fields and trees of the wood might bring ...
to the bodily pleasure and the mental

power of man, Ruskin wrote.


Leonard and Virginia Woolf lived what
they called a life of ramshackle informality at Monks House, a country retreat in
East Sussex, England, that they transformed from overgrown land into garden
rooms, brick walkways and an orchard.
Leonard, an author, editor and political
theorist, was the planter, while Virginia,
the novelist and critic, was more of an
observer. She experienced profound
pleasure in the fertility and wildness of
the gardens, Bennett said. Gardens feature strongly in her work.
We are safe in our garden, and its the
most I can do to get Leonard to leave it,
Virginia wrote in one of her diaries.
Other notable gardener-artists include:

Paul Cezanne, the French PostImpressionist painter. His favorite pastime was going into the countryside and
finding nature reclaiming mans domain,
Fell said. Things like roofs collapsing
and ivy growing through windows. Many
of his paintings fit that theme.
Monet, famed for his flower gardens at
Giverny, France, also was fond of heirloom vegetables. He was first to introduce zucchini into Normandy gardens as a
result of finding seeds in an Italian market, and also Chinese artichokes a tuber
related to clover with a nutty flavor, Fell
said.
Rudyard Kipling, who wrote The
Glory of the Garden a poetic tribute to
gardeners everywhere. Money from
Kiplings 1907 Nobel Prize in Literature
was used to improve his gardens, Bennett
said.
And then there was poet Rupert Brooke,
who perhaps said it best for all aspiring
gardeners and garden writers: I do not pretend to understand Nature, but I get on very
well with her.

had, the concerns that the neighborhood
had. I think this whole concept of getting
away from the big multi-level department
store in favor of a more dispersed series of
buildings with plazas and a number of different opportunities for people to use this
wonderful place, this is great, said
Planning Commissioner Chris Massey.
In place of the more than 200,000-squarefoot Sears, Bohannon has proposed a landscaped plaza sandwiched between two
smaller buildings that would include an
underground 38, 200-square-foot fitness
center, ground-floor retail and restaurant
space as well as a two-story bowling alley
lounge and restaurant, according to the
application. Only parts of the lot north of
31st Avenue are sought for a remodel with
the Outback Restaurant, Bohannon offices
and parking structure remaining in place.
The current ground-floor food court would be
shifted to the second story along with an
outdoor dining terrace that transitions into
a skywalk connecting to the central portion
of the shopping center. The surface parking
lot lining El Camino Real will be transformed into three smaller retail and restau-

rant buildings with an approximate 46,000square-foot movie theater managed by


Cinpolis Luxury Cinemas.
Much has changed at the shopping center over the course of the last 60 years. The
center has continually evolved to adapt to
the demands of the marketplace, said
Bohannon CEO Bob Webster. This is consistent with what is happening in similar
shopping centers across the country as
department stores are gradually disappearing from our landscape. The new trend is
to provide experiences the Internet cannot
offer.
Several neighbors who had followed the
proposal since its inception a few years
back attended and spoke at the meeting.
Impressed by the changes, some remained
concern that the theater and fitness center
would attract more patrons while the proposal outlines eliminating 277 parking
spaces. However, the shopping center as a
whole will ultimately provide 5, 179
spaces, several hundred more than required
by the city.

Traffic concerns
Nate Marsetti, who lives nearby, said the
narrow width of 29th, 30th and Sylvan
avenues behind the center pose a challenge
alongside an increase in traffic.
Eliminating the front parking lot area, it

THE DAILY JOURNAL

is shunting parking to the rear of the development. I do have concern as a father of


young children that the increase in traffic
will cause a safety consideration for those
neighborhoods, Marsetti said. Certainly
from this plan, I can tell a lot of the sentiment that was conveyed during the initial
plan was taken into consideration and manifested into this new plan, which is great.
Steve Moscaret said he lives close to the
shopping center and was initially a strong
opponent of the original proposal.
I think this plan is a vast improvement
and theres excitement around it. I still
think theres one area, a hot spot, that the
city owns and thats the five-way stop at
Edison and 31st, Moscaret said. I think
thats on the city itself there to make peace
with that and make the neighbors feel good
there.
Planning commissioners agreed with the
publics concerns regarding safety while
highlighting a thorough traffic study would
be conducted as part of the projects environmental review.
The traffic circulation and site access, for
me its all about how we provide a level of
comfort and safety to the pedestrians and
bicyclists and where they have to interact
with
the
cars,

Commissioner Dianne Whitaker.

District administration is recommending the Board of Trustees approve

Thursday, Feb. 12.
District officials said in an email the
compensation package is fair, as it
benefits teachers, but also allows the
district to remain financially solvent.
The district values our teachers and
all that they do to serve our students,
said district spokeswoman Sheri
Costa-Batis. The district team feels
that we have reached a reasonable
agreement that provides stability for
teachers while also allowing the dis-

site from 31st Avenue and the primarily residential streets to the west.
The commission also urged the developer
to consider installing sustainable features
such as solar, electric vehicle charging stations and hookups for recycled water.

Next steps
With community and commissioner input
in hand, Bohannon must return to the city
with a formal application and undergo environmental review. If all goes smoothly,
construction could start as early as the first
quarter of 2016, Bohannon Marketing
Director Christine Kupczak said previously.
I think youre going in a wonderful direction. I think what you presented to us is
exciting, Massey told Bohannon representatives at the meeting. I think as you move
forward in more specific plans and all of
that, I have every confidence that were
going to get to a place that everyones
going to be happy with.

trict to be a financially sustainable


organization now and in the future.
According to a report from the
California Department Of Education,
teachers in the district earned $91,599
on average last year.
The tentative two-year contract
allows for both parties to revisit
health benefit contributions in the
second year of the contract, said
Costa-Batis.
The tentative agreement marks the
third year in a row teachers have
received a raise. Last year, the union
and district agreed to a 5 percent pay
increase, but there was no increase in
health contributions.
Teachers received a 2 percent raise in
the previous contract.
Single teachers can receive no more
than $805.30 per month in contributions to health benefits, an employee

plus one person can receive no more


than $1,706 per month and employees
with families can receive no more than
$2,349 per month.
Per a clause in the contract for classified workers, the union will receive the
same percent pay bump as teachers.
If the certificated unit receives an
increase in salary compensation, the
same percentage increase in salary
compensation will be applied to the
classified bargaining unit, according
to the document.
Teachers will be allowed more professional development as part of the
tentative agreement as well.
A representative from the teachers
union did not respond to a request for
comment.
The board will meet tonight at 7
p.m. at the San Mateo Adult School, at
789 E. Poplar Ave. in San Mateo.

Reverse Mortgage Financial Assessment to begin March 2015


The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has issued a nancial assessment for
reverse mortgage borrowers that will take effect
March 2, 2015
HUD writes in explaining the purpose of nancial
assessment, The mortgagee must evaluate the
mortgagors willingness and capacity to timely meet
his or her nancial obligations and to comply with the
mortgage requirements. The mortgage requirements
include paying property taxes, homeowners insurance
and keeping up home maintenance.
HUD states, In conducting this nancial
assessment, mortgagees must take into consideration that some mortgagors seek a HECM due
to nancial difculties, which may be reected
in the mortgagors credit report and/or property
charge payment history. The mortgagee must also
consider to what extent the proceeds of the HECM

current interest rates, and the value of the home.

Whats hot in outdoor furniture


By Kim Cook
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Outdoor living spaces have come a long


way from the days when outdoor furnishings meant a few inexpensive folding
chairs around a flimsy plastic table.
Todays outdoor chairs might be wrought
iron or wrought aluminum, with upholstered seats. The table might be stone or
wood or an elegant faux version of either,
and would not look out of place inside in
the dining room. Add outdoor sound systems, carpets and lighting, and the backyard or balcony can look and feel like an
extension of the home.
That notion gets ramped up this spring
and summer; manufacturers are offering new
furniture, textiles and materials that resemble indoor furnishings yet can withstand
the elements.
Getting the right look can be tricky; you
dont want it to seem like you just plunked
a sofa from the living room down onto the
patio.
Heres a look at whats hot for Warm
Weather 2015:

VINTAGE MODERN
AND ULTRA-MODERN
Watch for midcentury modern styling in
outdoor pieces to coordinate with this popular interior style. The Glosters Dansk collection includes a chair with marine-grade,
leather-look upholstery and teak tables,
designed by Dane Povl Eskildsen.
(www.gloster.com)
After World War II, California designer
Walter Lamb was helping salvage sunken
Navy warships at Pearl Harbor when he
started messing around with the brass tubing and fittings. His prototypical outdoor
furniture collection was put into production
by Brown Jordan, the Pasadena-based company that pioneered outdoor furniture.

The Glosters Dansk collection includes a chair with marine-grade, leather-look upholstery and teak tables, designed by Dane Povl Eskildsen.
Todays iterations of Lambs pieces are still
crafted from brass, which you can leave
alone to develop a patina or polish to
retain the shine. The seats are marine-grade
cording. (www.dwr.com)
Luxe looks evoking old Hollywood are
also in. Beautiful on an urban terrace, these
pieces are chic and sophisticated, with tailoring details on upholstery, elegant finishes and striking colors.
Frontgates Grayson Jade collection
comes in a fashion-forward bright green, in
a powder-coated finish that looks lacquered. Here too, a zebra-print outdoor rug
and pillows with exotic botanical prints.
(www.frontgate.com)
Glosters Wedge seating has a stainlesssteel base and waterproof fabric over a new
type of outdoor foam that breathes well and
resists mold.
And Candace Olson designed a collection
for Century that includes slipcovered furniture, and a smart accent table crafted of
brass-finished aluminum and topped with a
faux-croc
surface.

(www.centuryfurniture.com)

GLOBAL STYLE
Global elements stay as strong in outdoor furnishings as they are in indoors:
Those Asian ceramic stools show no signs
of disappearing, and are offered in more
colors and patterns than ever.
Look for Moroccan influence in lanterns,
Mediterranean motifs in textiles, and Silk
Road accents like elephant-shaped tables,
daybeds and handcrafted accessories.

FLEXIBLE USE
While dedicated dining areas remain popular outdoors, theres also a trend toward
chat and chill configurations of furniture.
Indoor-style seating includes comfy lounge
chairs and sectional pieces that can be
grouped or separated, with ottomans, side
tables and coffee tables that can also be
used for casual dining.
Watch for new, portable fire pits, bars
and coffee tables.
Agio, the worlds largest outdoor furni-

ture supplier, introduces their Kolea collection this year featuring a fire pit and a sofa
with built-in bar. Burnt orange fabrics and a
lower profile are on-trend. (www. agiousa.com)

COLOR COMMENTARY
Deep indigo looks fresh and new, and so
does coral. Frontgates got a cane-print rug
in both hues.
Dark blue looks nautical and preppy
paired with crisp white, apple red or sunshine yellow, so think about mixing
things up in a fun way by putting the
brighter hues on the furniture pieces a
wicker or Adirondack chair, perhaps and
the blues on accent pieces. Or get a more
dressed-up vibe by keeping the pops of
color on accessories while the outdoor
space is anchored with darker-toned furniture.
The natural neutrals sand, mocha,
charcoal, cream stay strong for 2015.
Their versatility makes them good choices
whatever the climate.

Comedy Central has a short


list for Stewart replacement
By Lynn Elber
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES Comedy Central


is mulling a short list of replacements for Daily Show host Jon
Stewart, a decision that could affect
how much influence the show has on
the 2016 presidential campaign.
Also at issue: Whether Stewart, an
executive producer for Daily Show
as well as host, retains some role with
the show that has helped shape attitudes toward politics and media and
given campaigns an appealing forum
to reach potential voters, especially
younger ones.
TBD, said Doug Herzog, president
of Viacom Entertainment Group, using
the shorthand for to be determined,
when asked if Stewart would keep a
hand in.
Its not out of the question,
Herzog added.
Stewart, 52, announced Tuesday that
he will leave the hosts job this year,
a move that had been was closely held
by him and the channel. The timing of
his exit has yet to be determined, and
Stewart did not say what he plans to do
afterward.
I think Jon wanted to get this off
his chest and put it out there. Hes
been carrying this for a little while,
and now well have to discuss the
next steps, Herzog said. Hell take a
deep breath, as will we, and figure out
whats best for Jon Stewart and best

ENERGY
Continued from page 1
municipal accounts.
A joint powers authority would then
be formed to set up the CCA that would
then function as an independent nonprofit to buy electricity using Pacific
Gas and Electrics infrastructure.
The goal is to increase the percentage of power produced by clean
sources, Pine said.
Pine brought the idea to the San
Mateo County Board of Supervisors in
December. It will be back on the agenda for its Feb. 24 meeting.
There are currently three programs
operating in the state now including
Marin Clean Energy and Sonoma
Clean Energy. A third, Lancaster
Choice Energy will start this spring in
Los Angeles County.
Its an idea that the San Mateo City
Council has also considered as it has

for The Daily


Show, in that
order.
He declined to
comment on when
Stewart, whose contract is up this fall
told
Comedy
Central of his deciJon Stewart sion to leave.
Herzog
said
theres a short list of possible
Stewart replacements, declining to
provide specifics. Its uncertain
whether it includes former Daily
Show correspondent John Oliver,
who moved to HBO after successfully
filling in for Stewart when he took a
movie-making break.
Asked about whether Oliver is a candidate, Herzogs reply was succinct.
John Olivers got a job, he said.
Asked if that meant he was not under
consideration, Herzog said: I think
hes spoken for.
Whoever is chosen has heavy lifting to do.
Its almost impossible to estimate
the impact that Jon Stewart has had on
correcting misinformation in the
media and calling out our politicians
when they need to be called out, said
Sophia McClennen, a Penn State professor and author of Is Satire Saving
Our Nation?: Mockery and American
Politics.
And that was felt in the halls of
power.

Stewart had a very special talent for


putting fear in everybody from the
candidate to the operative to the
intern, should they do something
wrong, say something wrong. You
knew it might be immortalized on
The Daily Show, said Kevin
Madden, who was a campaign adviser
for Mitt Romney in 2008 and 2012.
Even former President Bill Clinton
felt compelled to weigh in, although
lightheartedly.
Jon Stewarts departure raises 2 Qs:
1) Where will I get my news each
night? 2) Does this mean hes doing a
sequel to Death to Smoochy? Clinton
posted on Twitter, including a reference to a 2002 comedy in which
Stewart appeared.
Candidates may still count on a
post-Stewart Daily Show appearance, hoping to reach its young adult
viewers and the potential votes they
represent, said Rich Galen, a
Republican consultant who worked on
former Sen. Fred Thompsons presidential campaign.
That could become a closed avenue,
depending on what changes come to
the show.
But it wont alter anyones campaign plans. It does take away one
option that everybody had, Galen
said.
That doesnt mean the shows satiric
viewpoint will be lost to TV or absent
from the 2016 presidential election,
others said.

revised its sustainability goals for the


future.
The rates for renewable energy in
most instances are lower than or competitive with PG&E rates depending on
the percentage being purchased, Pine
said.
Customers will have a choice to purchase 110 percent renewable energy,
solar, wind or other, or a 50/50 mix,
Pine said.
It gives residents a way to purchase
clean energy at very reasonable rates,
Pine said.
Buying clean energy in bulk is one
of the San Mateo City Councils sustainability
initiatives,
said
Councilman David Lim.
Participating in the bulk program,
however, is not a slam dunk, he said.
Theres uncertainty in the program
even in Marin and Sonoma since it is
in its early stages, Lim said.
The bottom line is whether participating makes financial sense, he said.
Its not necessarily true the energy
will be cheaper, he said.

If users opt out of the program, it


could turn into a suspect investment,
he said.
You have to take a hard look at the
financials and see if the program is
better for residents than they currently
have, Lim said.
Lim does agree with Pine that the
program would be better for the environment and looks for the county to
take the lead in creating it.
Pine also believes that if demand
increases locally for cleaner energy
that more of it will be produced locally
like it has in Marin and Sonoma counties.
Cities that participate in the feasibility study will have to produce raw
data to show what the local energy
demands are.
The first step is to complete the feasibility study and it will be some time
before a decision is made, Pine said.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You will have a hard
time agreeing with others. Listen carefully and see if
you can reach an amicable compromise rather than try
to get everyone to do things your way.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Your reputation will
be questioned if you fail to honor a promise. Keep
your word and be consistent. Trying to do too many
things at once will be your downfall.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Too much idle time will
work against you. Concentrate on your strengths, and
work diligently to reach your goal. No one will interfere
with your plans if you are secretive.

Sharks goalie
Nabokov retires
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN JOSE An emotional Evgeni


Nabokov announced his retirement
Wednesday from the NHL, just two days after
he was traded by Tampa Bay to the San Jose
Sharks, the team that drafted him in 1994.
It means a lot that this circle is coming
to an end and Im happy I will retire as a
Shark, Nabokov said, holding back tears at
a news conference attended by his family,
friends and former San Jose teammates.
Nabokov played 10 seasons for the
Sharks, a span that ended
after the 2009-10 campaign. He owns a long
list of franchise goaltending records, including most wins (293),
shutouts (50) and games
(563).
Nabokov was a Vezina
Trophy finalist in 2008
after going 46-21-8 in
Evgeni
the regular season. He
Nabokov
was a two-time NHL AllStar, making the team in 2001 and 2008. As
a rookie in the 2000-01 season, Nabokov
won the Calder Memorial Trophy.
The Sharks drafted Nabokov out of
Kazakhstan in the ninth round with the
219th pick in the 1994 NHL draft.
The guy has the perseverance, the passion for the game, the work ethic, Sharks
general manager Doug Wilson said. He was
given nothing. He epitomizes what this
game is all about.
Nabokov led the Sharks to the Western
Conference finals for the first time in franchise history in 2004. The Sharks lost to
the Calgary Flames. Then in 2010, he led
them to the conference finals again; this
time they got swept by the Chicago
Blackhawks.

Sharks blow lead, lose in overtime


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN JOSE Joel Ward scored with 2:18


remaining in overtime to lift the Washington
Capitals past the San Jose Sharks 5-4 on
Wednesday night.
Jay Beagle scored twice and John Carlson
and Troy Brouwer also scored for the Capitals,
who have won four of their last five.
Brent Burns scored twice, Logan Couture
and Joe Thornton also got goals as the Sharks
lost their third straight and fifth in six games.
Burns scored his goals within 22 seconds of
the second period.
Braden Holtby, with a 0.88 GAA over his
last five, saved 26 of 30 shots for
Washington. Antti Niemi stopped 28 of 33
shots.
Beagle connected on a breakaway, beating
Niemi to the far post. Carlson scored the goahead goal a few minutes later, with an assist

Capitals 5, Sharks 4
from Marcus Johansson.
Then Thornton got his 12th goal a minute
later to tie the score at 4. He found an opening
at the near post after taking a cross-ice pass
from Joe Pavelski.
Burns, who has four goals and four assists in
10 career games against the Capitals, fired a
shot past Holtby 21 seconds into the second
period on a power play. Thornton won the
puck off the boards and got it to Burns.
Patrick Marleau controlled the ensuing faceoff and got the puck to Burns, whose shot
glanced of Holtbys shoulder pads and into the
net.
Brouwers power-play midway through the
second period tied the game at 2. Alex
Ovechkin, the NHLs co-leader in goals
scored, passed to the far post and Brouwer redirected it in.

Ovechkin has 31 points over his past 28


games (21 goals, 10 assists), getting points
in 20 of them.
Couture scored the go-ahead goal with just
over five minutes left in the second, grabbing
Matt Nietos missed shot and scoring on a
wraparound.
Washington had opened the scoring with
just under five minutes to play in the first period. Michael Latta fished the puck out from
behind the net and passed to Brooks Orpik,
whose shot bounced off Matt Tennysons
skates and directly to Beagle.
The Capitals won a shootout in San Jose
last year to end a 12-game losing streak here.
NOTES: The announced crowd of 16,956
was the lowest attendance since Feb. 2, 2006
(15,226). . Thornton got his 1,240th career
point to move into sole possession of 36th
place on the all-time list. . Brouwer has three
goals in his last five games,

Tiger Woods said hell return when his game is ready


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PEBBLE BEACH Tiger Woods said


Wednesday his game is not acceptable to
compete in tournaments and he will return
when he thinks it is.
Hopeful of having injuries behind him,
Woods made a horric start to the new year. He
shot a career-high 82 in the second round of
the Phoenix Open to miss the cut by 12 shots.
And then he withdrew after 11 holes of ordinary golf at Torrey Pines because of tightness
in his back from a fog delay.
Woods said on his website the last two
weeks have been disappointing, especially at
Torrey Pines, where he is an eight-time winner. He said he never wants to withdraw, but
recent injuries have allowed that to happen
too often.

Woods said his latest injury was not related


to the back surgery he had last spring, and that
he is feeling better every day with physical
therapy.
Right now, I need a lot of work on my
game, and to still spend time with the people
that are important to me, Woods said. My
play, and scores, are not acceptable for tournament golf. Like Ive said, I enter a tournament
to compete at the highest level, and when I
think Im ready, Ill be back.
Woods is not playing Pebble Beach or
Riviera, and said he would practice next week
at his home and at The Medalist getting ready
for the rest of the year.
He said he wants to play the Honda Classic,
which starts Feb. 26, but he wont be there
unless his game is tournament ready.

Thats not fair to anyone, Woods said. I


do, however, expect to be playing again very
soon.
Woods, the winner of 79 PGA Tour events
and 14 majors, has never looked this bad on
the golf course. He had back surgery to relieve
a pinched nerve a week before the Masters and
missed three months (including the rst two
majors), and then he took four months off at
the end of last year to regain strength and get
his back fully healed.
He also hired a new swing consultant and
embarked on the fth swing change of his
career.
Woods is at No. 62 in the world, his worst
ranking since before he won his rst PGA Tour
event in 1996. He is not eligible for the World
Golf Championship at Doral.
