SupremeCourt: Health
care law is here to stay
Ruling upholds aid to millions of low- and middle-income Americans
By Mark Sherman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The Supreme


Court sent a clear message Thursday
that President Barack Obamas health
care overhaul is here to stay, rejecting
a major challenge that would have
imperiled the landmark law and health
insurance for millions of Americans.
Whether you call it the Affordable
Care Act, Obamacare, or in the words
of a dissenting justice, SCOTUScare,
Obamas signature domestic achievement is, as the president himself put it,
reality.
The 6-3 ruling, which upheld financial aid to millions of low- and middleincome Americans to help pay for
insurance premiums regardless of
where they live, was the second major
victory in three years for Obama in
politically charged Supreme Court
tests of the law. And it came on the
same day the court gave him an unexpected victory on another subject, preserving a key tool the administration
uses to fight housing bias.
Obama greeted news of the health
care decision by declaring the law is no
longer about politics but the benefits

Residents will have chance to provide
feedback on environmental impact report
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Residents will have a formal opportunity to express their


opinion on a plan which is slated to overhaul the gateway
to Millbrae, as officials take a crack at considering the
environmental impact document for development of the
region near the Caltrain and BART station.
The draft environmental impact report and Millbrae
Station Area Specific Plan will come before the Millbrae
officials Tuesday, June 30, during a joint meeting of the
City Council and Planning Commission.
The massive undertaking aims to add roughly 400,000
square feet of office space, about 79,000 square feet of retail
space and more than 800 residential units split between two
projects located on an 116-acre site next to the transit station off Millbrae Avenue.

Half Moon Bay loses $18M claim


Insurance company wins arbitration regarding Beachwood lawsuit
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Still striving to recover as much as possible after being ordered to pay more than $18
million from the Beachwood property lawsuit, the city of Half Moon Bay recently lost
a claim seeking assistance from a third
insurance provider.
The city recently entered arbitration with
Lexington Insurance Company as it sought
nearly $18 million to help refund what it
paid toward the settlement, attorney fees
and related costs after a U.S. District Court
judge determined the city destroyed a oncedevelopable 24-acre property.
Yet, last month, two of the three arbitrators ultimately determined the citys misconduct occurred prior to it taking out a policy with Lexington in late 2000 and didnt
have rights to any reimbursement.
While disappointed, city officials maintain Half Moon Bay is still on its way to
retiring its debt early as it was able to collect $18.15 million from two other insurance providers.
Mayor Marina Fraser said losing arbitration against Lexington should not impact
the citys continued momentum toward a
more stable financial future.
If anything, it was just going to be some
extra money from the Beachwood judgment, Fraser said. We received $5 million
from ABAG, the Association of Bay Area
Governments, and a couple years ago $13
million from one of the primary insurance
companies. We took that money and have
been paying off $1.2 million annually. That
debt will still be paid off in 2019.
The Beachwood debacle stemmed from the
mid-1980s when the city begun a flawed
drainage project that, over the course of the
next 30 years, ultimately led to wetlands

developing on the site previously slated for
an 83-unit housing development. Once the
wetlands were established, the planned
development was prevented from proceeding as the once profitable site had been
essentially transformed to protected vegetative habitat.
The private property owner won the case
around 2007 and the city was initially
ordered to pay more than $36 million, but
was able to negotiate it down to $18 million. Faced with needing to secure bonds to
settle its debt and paired with the economy
taking a nosedive, the citys finances were
in upheaval.
So the city pressed on with recovering as
much as possible from its various insurance
providers and, after some success, opted to
try Lexington as well, Fraser said.
On Tuesday, Lexington filed a petition in
San Mateo County Superior Court to confirm the arbitration.
A few lingering insurance policies that
could potentially assist remain, but its not
clear whether it will be worthwhile to try as
the city has already cashed in on the easier,
low-hanging fruit policies, said City
Attorney Tony Condotti.
Each policy was different. The ABAG
policy and the [Insurance Company of the
West] policy were for earlier periods of time
and the coverage language was slightly different than the Lexington Insurance
Company, Condotti said.
Despite being unsuccessful during the
arbitration, Councilwoman Debbie Ruddock
said its important to note the city is no

worse off than it was before the recent ruling.


Im very happy to know that the city
doesnt appear to be obligated to make
unanticipated expenditures as a result of this
action, Ruddock said, noting Condotti
believes Half Moon Bay is not responsible
for paying Lexingtons attorneys fees.
The council will convene for a closed session meeting next month to review the arbitrators ruling and Ruddock said she hopes
officials will continue to discuss what to do
with the now city-owned 24.7-acre parcel of
undeveloped land.
Having recently returned to elected office,
Ruddock said shes disappointed the city
didnt try to appeal the U.S. District Court
ruling and initial evaluation of the property
being worth nearly $38 million particularly as the low-lying property at the base
of a hill has long been known as a muddy,
wet site.
Furthermore, the city also opted to let the
former property owner keep water connection rights purchased for the site, which
were worth between $3.5 million and $4
million, Ruddock said.
The citys been talking about doing
something with the Beachwood property,
but were very limited because of the lack of
water connections, Ruddock said. Old
timers will tell you, they used to call that
property hog wallow, because it was
always muddy and wet.
Although the chapter of the Beachwood
lawsuit debacle isnt quite closed, officials
agreed its good to be moving on.
Im content knowing that our basic
expenses seem to be covered, Ruddock
said. But yes, hindsight is 20-20.

Republican lawmakers introduce


revised federal drought relief bill
By Kevin Freking
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

REUTERS

Californias vaccine bill aims to increase immunization rates after a measles outbreak linked
to Disneyland in December sickened over 100 people in the U.S. and Mexico.

WASHINGTON Republican members of


Californias congressional delegation are
tackling drought relief again with a wideranging bill introduced Thursday that
attempts to speed up new water storage projects and move more water through river
pumps for farms and cities.
The bill by Republican Congressman
David Valadao of Hanford comes closer to
what Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein
pushed through the Senate last year, but
there are also considerable differences. For
example, the House bill scraps efforts to
restore a Chinook salmon fishery in the San
Joaquin River, which was the goal of a 2006
lawsuit settlement.
Valadao said Congress needs to act
because the consequences of Californias
drought are spreading.
Inaction will result in the collapse of our
domestic food supply, he said.
Valadaos bill requires certain levels of

pumping in the Sacramento-San Joaquin


River Delta unless reducing water flow is
necessary to ensure the long-term survival
of a species. The GOP proposal moves away
from past efforts that called for running
Californias two primary water distribution
systems without taking requirements of the
Endangered Species Act into account.
Environmental advocates immediately
rejected the proposal and Feinstein made
clear that changes would be needed to get her
support.
The drought bill introduced today in the
House includes some useful provisions to
increase the flexibility of water delivery as
well as some provisions that would violate
environmental law, which Ive said many
times I cannot support, Feinstein said.
California has suffered from extremely dry
conditions since 2012, and the House has
passed legislation in the previous two congressional sessions aimed at bringing more
water to the states agricultural belt in the
Central Valley. Those measures have stalled
in the Senate.

State vaccine bill clears


major legislative hurdle Prosecutor: Fatal balcony collapse
By Julia Horowitz

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO Californias Assembly


on Thursday approved a hotly contested bill
requiring that nearly all public schoolchildren be vaccinated, clearing one of its last
major legislative obstacles before the measure heads to the desk of Gov. Jerry Brown.
The bill aims to increase immunization
rates after a measles outbreak linked to
Disneyland in December sickened over 100
people in the U.S. and Mexico.
It would give California one of the
nations strictest vaccine laws by striking
the states personal belief exemption. Only
children with serious health issues would be
allowed to opt out of mandatory vaccine
schedules. Unvaccinated children would
need to be homeschooled.
If the bill becomes law, California would
join Mississippi and West Virginia as the
only states with such strict requirements.
Do we wait until we have a full-fledged
crisis to protect the most vulnerable?
Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San
Diego, asked as she presented the bill.
The measure passed on a bipartisan 46-30
vote after weeks of vocal opposition, with
thousands of parents placing calls to representatives and donning red shirts to protest
at the Capitol.
But proponents have been equally res-

olute, standing by 7-year-old leukemia survivor Rhett Krawitt Wednesday as he delivered a petition with over 30,000 signatures
to the Democratic governor. Krawitts parents said that because he could not be immunized for a year after receiving chemotherapy, they were nervous to send him to school
in the chronically under-vaccinated Marin
County.
We should fight for the liberty not just of
those who dont want to vaccine their kids,
but for those who cannot, said Republican
Assemblywoman Catharine Baker, RPleasanton, during Thursdays floor debate.
Two Republican assemblywomen joined
the Democratic majority in support. The
Senate already approved the bill once, but
still must approve amendments before it is
sent to Brown. The Senate could take up
amendments as early as next week.
Brown has not said whether he would sign
the bill authored by Democratic senators
Richard Pan of Sacramento and Ben Allen of
Santa Monica.
The Governor believes that vaccinations
are profoundly important and a major public
health benefit and any bill that reaches his
desk will be closely considered,
spokesman Evan Westrup said in an email
that repeated Browns earlier statement.
Opponents of the vaccine bill gathered on
the Capitol steps after the vote, vowing to
make their voices heard to the governor.

could bring manslaughter charges


By Paul Elias
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND Prosecutors said Thursday


they have opened a criminal investigation
into a fatal California balcony collapse
that could lead to involuntary manslaughter charges.
However, Alameda County District
Attorney Nancy OMalley declined to discuss any possible target of her investigation, saying it could end with no charges
being filed.
We will ultimately have to make a determination whether the facts support crimi-

nal charges and whether those facts can be


proven beyond reasonable doubt in a court
of law, OMalley said during a packed
news conference at her Oakland office.
Six students were killed last week,
including five from Ireland, and seven others were injured when a balcony broke
from the side of a Berkeley apartment
building.
OMalley announced the criminal investigation two days after city inspectors said
the balcony was supported by wooden
beams that had been badly rotted by water
damage. City officials said at that time
they would investigate no further.

State Dept.: Fifteen emails


missing from Clinton cache
By Bradley Klapper
and Matthew Lee
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The State


Department cannot find in its records
all or part of 15 work-related emails
from Hillary Rodham Clintons private server that were released this week
by a House panel investigating the
2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, officials said Thursday.
The emails all predate the Sept. 11
assault on the U.S. diplomatic facility
and include scant words written by
Clinton herself, the officials said.
They consist of more in a series of

would-be intelligence reports passed


to her by longtime political confidant
Sidney Blumenthal, the officials said.
Nevertheless, the fact that the State

raise new questions about Clintons
use of a personal email account and
server while secretary of state and
whether she has provided the agency
all of her work-related correspondence,
as she claims.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the
Select Committee on Benghazi,
released a statement Thursday saying,
This confirms doubts about the completeness of Clintons self-selected
public record and raises serious ques-

tions about her decision to erase her


personal server especially before it
could be analyzed by an independent,
neutral third-party arbiter.
When asked about the discrepancy,
Nick Merrill, a Clinton campaign
spokesman, said, She has turned over
55,000 pages of materials to the State
Department, including all emails in
her possession from Mr. Blumenthal.
Clinton is running for the 2016
Democratic presidential nomination.
Clintons use of the non-governmental email while in office was not
publicly disclosed until earlier this
year, after the committee sought her
correspondence related to the
Benghazi attack.

Hundreds attend
funerals for victims
of church shooting
By Jonathan Drew
and Meg Kingnard
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.


A choir and band launched into
one of Ethel Lances favorite
gospel tunes and roused hundreds
of mourners from their seats
Thursday in a crescendo of music
at the first funeral for victims of
the massacre at a historic black
church.
People stood to clap, nod and
sway some closing their eyes
under the exertion of the cathartic
singing. Ushers walked through
the aisles with boxes of tissues for
people to dab their tears. An
organ, drums and bass guitar provided the rhythm.
The service was fitting for the
70-year-old Charleston native
with an infectious smile, who
served with vigor as an officer at

the Emanuel African Methodist


Episcopal Church, the congregations interim pastor said.
When it was time for the ushers
to usher, she had the usher strut,
the Rev. Norvel Goff said. When
Sister Lance praised the Lord, you
had to strap on your spiritual seat
belt.
Police officers stood guard and
checked bags as mourners filed in.
Despite pleas to withhold debate
until after the funerals, the South
Carolina governors call to
remove the Confederate flag from
in front of the Statehouse in
response to the killings was reverberating around the South. A growing number of leading politicians
said Civil War symbols should be
removed from places of honor,
despite their integral role as elements of southern identity.
Some authorities have worried
openly about a backlash as people

Black Lives Matter was spraypainted on a monument to
Confederate President Jefferson
Davis in Richmond, Virginia, on
Thursday, only the latest statue to
be defaced. On Tuesday and
Wednesday,
African-American
churches in Charlotte, North
Carolina, and Macon, Georgia

were intentionally set afire.


But in Charleston, the early gestures of forgiveness by the victims families toward a shooting
suspect who embraced the
Confederate flag set a healing tone
that has continued through a series
of unity rallies, drawing thousands of people intent on leaving
no room for racial hate.

A hateful, disillusioned young


man came into the church filled
with hate ... and the reaction was
love, Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr.
said at the days second funeral,
held for Sharonda ColemanSingleton, 45. He came in with
symbols of division. The confederate battle flag is coming down

Supreme Court upholds key tool for fighting housing bias


By Sam Hananel
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON A sharply
divided Supreme Court on Thursday
preserved a key tool used for more
than four decades to fight housing
discrimination, handing a surprising victory to the Obama adminis-

tration and civil rights activists.


The justices ruled 5-4 that federal
housing law allows people to challenge lending rules, zoning laws
and other housing practices that
have a harmful impact on minority
groups, even if there is no proof
that companies or government
agencies intended to discriminate.

Justice Anthony Kennedy, in a


rare vote on the side of civil rights
groups on matters of race, joined
the courts four liberal members in
upholding the use of so-called
disparate impact cases.
The ruling is a victory for housing advocates who argued that the
1968 Fair Housing Act allows

challenges to race-neutral policies


that have negative effects on
minorities.
The
Justice
Department has used disparate
impact lawsuits to win more than
$500 million in legal settlements
from companies accused of bias
against black and Hispanic customers.

It was a defeat for banks, insurance companies and other business


groups that claimed such lawsuits
often based on statistics are
not explicitly allowed under the
landmark housing law that sought
to eliminate segregation that has
long existed in residential housing.

Agency posts thousands of


complaints against banks T
By Jeff Horwitz and Ken Sweet
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The Consumer Financial


Protection Bureau released thousands of complaints Thursday from disgruntled customers
of banks, credit card companies and other
providers of financial services.
The bureau posted a database of the grievances on its website over vehement protests
from the financial industry. The database
contains 7,700 complaints filed online by
people who agreed to air their complaints
publicly.
The CFPB offers a disclaimer that it does
not investigate the substance of the complaints before posting them. Some postings
come with spelling errors, some with gratuitous capitalization of words. The Bureau
hopes the compilation of the grievances
will point both it and the general public to
the personal financial trouble spots of the
day.
The targets of the complaints vary widely,
and include small debt collection companies
as well as Wall Street giants. Among the
complaints: U.S. Bank supposedly gave a
Wisconsin parents young son a credit card
with a $4,500 limit that he didnt request, and
a California couple reported finally catching
up on mortgage payments to M&T bank,
only to be told they were still a month in
arrears.
The database represents a small fraction of
the 627,000 total complaints the bureau has
received in the four years its been operating.
The CFPB began offering the option of
allowing people to publicly share their complaints in March.
We believe the disclosure of this information is one of the best tools government
agencies can use to improve the operation of
the marketplace, said Richard Cordray, the

Consumer Financial Protection Bureaus


director, calling the narratives a valued educational and shopping tool.
The public posting of the database is a
sharp break from the traditional practices of
other financial regulators. How and whether
the data gets used, whether by fellow regulators, plaintiffs attorneys or people shopping looking for a new bank, wont become
apparent for a while.
For now, many people making complaints
to the CFPB are choosing to share them.
According to the Bureau, more than half of
the people whove filed complaints since
March chose to make them public.
The individual grievances and the public
database were created despite repeated
protests from the financial services industry.
The American Bankers Association, which
has been against the database since the
bureau proposed it last year, said the database
would be a purveyor of at best unsubstantiated, and potentially false, information.
Todays public disclosure of unverified
consumer complaint narratives doesnt
advance that goal and may threaten consumer
privacy, the organization said.
Credit reporting giant Experian, which has
just over 21,000 complaints in the Bureaus
overall database, argued that the complaints
would likely contain inaccurate, misleading, or even derogatory or offensive statements.
Consumer advocates supported the
Bureaus plan, praising the potential to lead
researchers and regulators to newly emerging
objectionable practices.
In previous retail banking controversies,
such as the practice of banks re-ordering
daily debit card transactions to produce additional overdraft penalties, people complained for years before regulators took
notice.

OPINION

THE DAILY JOURNAL

Friday June 26, 2015

We knocked but no one answered


By Herb Perez

he issue of overcrowded schools in


Foster City remains paramount to
quality of place and quality of life
our families demand. The signicance of
this issue cannot be understated and it is
my opinion that the unwillingness of
school Superintendent Cynthia Simms and
current board President Audrey Ng to meet
with the Foster City Council to discuss our
residents issues in details to fully understand and better be able to address this
issue has continued to fracture the already
tenuous relationship.
Requests for a joint meeting of the city
councils of Foster City and San Mateo and
the San Mateo-Foster City Elementary
School District Board of Trustees were
denied unilaterally by Simms and Ng. This
denial occurred without the knowledge of
several board members. The need for a public discussion cannot be underestimated
since one of the seemingly preferred
options of the Next Steps Committee is to
build a new school on Charter Square
Shopping Plaza in Foster City. When this
proposal was brought forward, it was met
with tremendous opposition from a cross
section of residents.
By way of an update, the City Council
has scheduled a closed session 7 a.m.
Monday, June 29, to discuss a request by
the San Mateo-Foster City Elementary

School District for real


property negotiations
regarding Charter Square.
This meeting will be
closed to the public and
will be only among our
city staff and our council.
While we as a city do
not have any legal
responsibility or ability
to build schools we certainly do have a
moral, ethical and duciary responsibility
to cooperate with the entity charged with
this mandate. Simply stated, we as elected
ofcials who represent the families of
Foster City should use our best efforts and
resources to create the best educational
experience we can to the betterment of our
community and nancial well-being.
There are many issues that cross city and
county lines that we use our best efforts to
be part of a multi-jurisdictional solution.
We are part of countywide animal protection services, library services, shared re
services and gang task force stafng. We
participate in these programs to reduce the
cost of providing these services and to
serve as part of a holistic solution to the
betterment of all those involved. In each
and every case mentioned, the solution
started with a dialogue about what was possible and what solutions might be available if we all worked together. Dialogue
yields better solutions that soliloquy.
The purpose of a joint public meeting

Guest
perspective
was to bring all concerned elected ofcials
together in a public forum and in compliance of the Brown Act. This will allow the
public to be engaged and listen to the
thought processes of the group. Perhaps
more importantly, the concerns of our community could be heard and voiced to the
elected ofcials. Whether such a meeting
would have had a material effect on the outcome of the school districts process,
deliberation and/or preferred solutions, we
will never know.
The Foster City Council used its best
efforts to open a public dialogue about our
overcrowded schools. Unfortunately, we
knocked, but ultimately no door was
opened. I believe that our families now
need to use their voice to reach the San
Mateo-Foster City Elementary School
District board and share their views about
the proposed solutions that may or may
not end up as a bond initiative this
November. Our city needs your help.

Council. He can be reached at 468-3143 and

Letters to the editor


Foster City needs schools, but not
at the expense of local businesses
Editor,
I am writing to express my concern over
the proposal to build a new school at the
location of the Charter Square Shopping
Center. The issue of school overcrowding
in Foster City is important, and the quality
of life in our city is reduced when our children have to go to school in San Mateo
than closer to home. The Next Steps
Committee has attempted to come up with
solutions for this problem, but unfortunately most of the solutions they propose
are problematic.
I live a short walk from Charter Square,
and it is the closest complex to my home.
My wife, my dog and I visit Charter
Squares restaurants, stores and post ofce
several times a week. The reduction in the
number of local businesses caused by this
proposal would be a signicant loss to the
nearby neighborhoods, and the number of
businesses my neighbors and I could easily
walk to would be signicantly reduced.
The original vision for Foster City was
that everyone should be able to walk to a
school, a park and a shopping center.
While retail patterns have changed over
time, there is still a strong need for neighborhood shops and restaurants within
walking distance of our homes. One of the
things that made me want to live in Foster

solutions to the important problem of
school overcrowding.

Confederate flag
Editor,
The divide between the southern states
and the balance of the United States has
grown in recent years. It is good to see the
southern conservative politicians falling
all over themselves to rush the ag symbol
of The Confederacy and slavery into the
museums.
Where have they been for the past 100
years? And, we have not even heard from
Rick Perry, Bobbie Jindal and some others.
What took Walmart from Arkansas so long
to discontinue selling the Confederate ag?
Didnt they know the history of slavery
and the Confederacy? It is good that they
dont sell Nazi ags with swastikas either.

Editor,
Here it comes. San Mateo friends are
sharing that they are beginning to get
emails and phone calls, taking their pulse
about paying for the infrastructure to support all this new housing. This includes a
ballot measure to build more school space
and a ballot measure to extend Measure L.
San Mateo has one of the highest sales tax
rates in the United States and our scal situation has greatly improved since the 2009
installation of Measure L, yet residents
will be squeezed for more.
Wasnt Measure L a stop-gap measure to
address specic budget shortfalls?
Shouldnt we expect our city to be managing things so temporary measures can be
temporary? Im all for good schools and
paying police, reghters, etc. But someone has got to be doing some better planning when the city is reaping funds from
all the newly approved housing, yet cant
even nd the money to pave our 18 miles
of failed roads without another handout
from us.

The trouble with


toll, carpool lanes

dont log enough freeway miles to


have a lot of experience with carpool
lanes. Most times when I encounter
them, Im either outside the time period or
with enough family members to use them.
Its the benet of living close to where I
work.
However, I hear
enough from others who encounter
them regularly to
know there is definite mixed feelings about them.
And the mix is
more on the side
of against them.
The idea is to
encourage people
to share cars during commute
hours so there are
fewer cars on the road and more people can
travel with ease. If four people who live in
the same area work in the same area, they
can share a car. However, that may work
with Dagwood or when there was a central
place where everyone worked, but our area
is more complicated with other factors.
Some people work in San Francisco and
live on the Peninsula. Some people live in
San Francisco and work on the Peninsula.
Some people work a traditional 9 to 5,
most others dont, or have too many meetings or work crises to adhere to a certain
schedule. From what I understand, carpool
lanes work well in theory but not in reality.
People still use their cars. And on the
Peninsula, the main public transit alternative is Caltrain, which is now always
crowded and sometimes delayed because of
various factors. And then there is the last
mile problem in that people dont necessarily live or work right next to a Caltrain
station and are forced to nd a way to get to
their home or work on their own, well, feet.
So when it was revealed last week that the
City/County Association of Governments
was studying the possibility of adding carpool lanes to Highway 101 from Redwood
City to San Bruno, I was concerned. I was
alarmed when I learned the study included
toll lanes at the same stretch. Toll lanes
would mean single drivers could opt to pay
extra to use the carpool lane, which would
not only add trafc to it, but is inherently
classist. So those who could afford to use
the carpool lane wont be stuck in trafc,
but those who cant afford it cant?
Another part of the study is for the addition of auxiliary lanes from Oyster Point in
South San Francisco to San Francisco. That
makes sense. Auxiliary lanes have the ability to ease congestion by allowing shortdistance drivers to stay in them from one
exit to the next. It also allows for a longer
merge so trafc can run smoother.
Carpool lanes, however, are one of those
things that sound good in theory but dont
work well in reality. And when it comes to
Highway 101, already stymied by cars
because of the economic boom, its not
good to mess with something thats already
on the precipice of gridlock.
If we lived in an area with more affordable
public transit options with more east-west
connections and more regular service, and
we also had workers with more traditional
schedules, work locations and home locations, then tinkering with the psychology
of drivers might be a worthwhile plan.
Carpool lanes might just be a thing of the
past, and it would be best to gure out other
transportation solutions. Toll lanes are
an idea that should never get off the ground.
There is already enough tension between
the haves and the have-nots in this area.
Why add to that?
So while it is just a study, the study will
cost money, to the tune of about $16.5 million in grants. That money would be better
spent on nding other solutions. Auxiliary
lanes work. Carpool lanes dont. Toll lanes
shouldnt even be thought of.

Googles new self-driving cars cruising Silicon Valley roads


By Michael Liedtke
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO The latest models of Googles self-driving cars are now
cruising the streets near the Internet
companys Silicon Valley headquarters
as an ambitious project to transform the
way people get around shifts into its
next phase.
This marks the first time that the podlike, two seat vehicles have been
allowed on public roads since Google
unveiled the next generation of its selfdriving fleet more than a year ago. The
cars had previously been confined to a
private track located on a former Air
Force base located about 120 miles
southeast of San Francisco.
Google announced last month that it
would begin testing the curious-looking
cars last month, but hadnt specified the
timing until Tuesday when it disclosed

the vehicles are driving up to 25 miles


per hour on the roads around its
Mountain View office.
Google had installed its robotic driving technology in Lexus sports utility
vehicles during the first few years of
testing before developing the smaller
prototype. The new models are designed
to work without a steering wheel or
brake pedal, although the vehicles will
be equipped with those features during
the initial runs on public roads.
A human will also ride in the cars to
take control in emergencies, just as has
been the case with the self-driving
Lexus vehicles during the past six years.
The debut of the pod-like car will help
Google get a better understanding on
how well its technology works around
other vehicles steered by people.
Californias Department of Motor
Vehicles have given Google permission
to send up to 25 of its latest self-driving

cars on neighborhood roads.


If all goes well, Google hopes to gain
regulatory clearance to remove the
steering wheel, brake pedal and emergency driver from the prototype.
Company executives have expressed
hope that self-driving cars using its
technology will be joining the flow of
daily traffic by the end of this decade.
The earlier models of Googles selfdriving cars had been involved in 13
minor accidents through more than 1.8
million miles on the roads, according to
the company. Google blamed the collisions on other vehicles in every
instance except one when the company
says one of its own employees was
steering. Motorists who encounter
Googles latest self-driving car while
they are in Mountain can share their
experience with the company at

U.S. government bond prices fell.
The yield on the 10-year Treasury

In the energy markets, the price of
oil fell on continuing concerns that
high supplies of gasoline and diesel
will keep a lid on crude demand.
Benchmark U.S. crude fell 57 cents to
close at $59.70 a barrel in New York.

McDonalds: Fewer Happy
Meal orders opting for soda
NEW YORK McDonalds says fewer people are picking
soda for Happy Meals after it stopped listing the drinks as an
option on its menu boards.
The worlds biggest hamburger chain said Thursday 48 percent of Happy Meals orders chose soda as a beverage in the
U.S. after it was scrubbed from menus and marketing materials between July of last year and May. Thats down from 56
percent in the year-ago period.
I would expect that this would continue to go down, said
Julia Braun, director of nutrition at McDonalds.
The results were noted in a report commissioned by
McDonalds Corp. to track its progress on a pledge made in
late 2013 with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, which
was founded by the Clinton Foundation and the American
Heart Association.
The pledge is part of a push by McDonalds to quiet critics
who say it serves junk food and peddles unhealthy choices to
children. Shaking that reputation is particularly important
for McDonalds, whose courtship of parents and children
over the decades helped make it an industry leader.

NEW YORK A Univision network is dropping the Miss


USA pageant and the company says it will cut all business
ties with Donald Trump in a spiraling controversy over comments the Republican presidential candidate made recently
about Mexican immigrants.
Univision said Thursday it would pull the plug on its
Spanish-language coverage of the pageant July 12 by its
UniMas network. It also has severed its business relationship with the Miss Universe Organization, which produces
the Miss USA pageant, due to what it called insulting
remarks about Mexican immigrants by Trump, a part owner
of Miss Universe.
During his presidential campaign kickoff speech last
week, Trump portrayed immigrants from Mexico as bringing drugs, theyre bringing crime, theyre rapists, and some,
I assume, are good people. He also called for building a wall
along the southern border of the U.S. The remarks drew condemnation from the Mexican government as biased and
absurd.

California court says sweepstakes games are illegal


SAN FRANCISCO Computerized sweepstakes games
offered at special Internet cafes are the equivalent of slot
machines that are illegal under state law, the California
Supreme Court ruled Thursday.
The court said the sweepstakes are games of chance because
customers have no way to influence the unpredictable outcome.
When the user, by some means (here swiping a card or
entering a number), causes the machine to operate, and then
plays a game to learn the outcome, which is governed by
chance, the user is playing a slot machine, Associate Justice
Ming Chin wrote for the court.

SONOMA Baseball history was made


Thursday on a field of wistful dreams in
Northern California wine country when the
sports first openly gay active professional
started the game as a pitcher.
Sean Conroy, 23, took the mound for the
Sonoma Stompers, a 22-man team that is part
of the independent Pacific
Association of Baseball
Clubs.
The atmosphere at the
ballpark was low-key,
with no obvious signs it
was a historic night or
even a gay-pride-themed
game except for the rainbow-striped socks and arm
Sean Conroy warmers some players
but not Conroy wore.
Conroy walked his first batter and struck out
his second.
The Stompers recruited the upstate New York
native out of college in May. General Manager
Theo Fightmaster says Conroy privately
shared his sexual orientation with teammates
and management before agreeing to come out
publicly in time for the teams home field gay
pride night.
The first conversation I had with Sean was,
I want you to know this organization supports you, we respect who you are. We respect
who you (are) as a pitcher and a person and to
whatever degree you want your story told,
well help facilitate that, Fightmaster said.
His goal has always been to be the first
openly gay baseball player, so he was very
much in favor of telling the story, of carrying
that torch, Fightmaster said.
Major League Baseball historian John
Thorn confirmed that Conroy is the first
active professional to come out as gay. Glenn
Burke, an outfielder for the As and Dodgers,
and Billy Bean, a utility player with the
Tigers, Dodgers and Padres, came out after they
retired.

Belt found another gear on the
bases, and compared himself to a
long-legged jungle animal.
The speedy Giants hit four
triples in a game for the first time
in 55 years, including a pair by
Belt in a 13-8 win over the San
Diego Padres on Thursday.
When I can sniff a triple, Im
going to turn it on, Belt said. I
will do whatever I have to do, use
my giraffe strides, to get to third
base.
Brandon Crawford and Matt
Duffy also tripled for San
Francisco, which had not tripled
four times in a game since Sept.
15, 1960, when Willie Mays hit
three of them and Eddie Bressoud
had one at Philadelphias Connie
Mack Stadium. The Giants had not
accomplished the feat at home
since Hack Wilson and Ross
Youngs had two triples each
against the Boston Braves at New
Yorks Polo Grounds on June 28,
1924, according to STATS.
Buster Posey and Gregor Blanco
each had three RBIs for the Giants,
who built a 7-0 lead by the sixth
and won for the fifth time in seven
games. San Francisco has won
consecutive home games for the
first time since May 28-29.
It was great to see Belt,
Crawford and Angel (Pagan) too,
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.
We needed it, too. The good thing
is when they scored, we came back
and scored too. Its good to get the
bats going, and off a tough pitcher, too. We havent had a game like
this for a while.

As complete sweep of Rangers


By Stephen Hawkins
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ARLINGTON, Texas Oakland right-hander


Sonny Gray wins at Texas even when hes not at
his best.
Gray and the Athletics benefited from a big
two-out hit by Sam Fuld, three RBIs from Josh
Reddick and another solid outing from the
bullpen for a 6-3 victory Thursday to complete
a three-game series sweep.
This is the kind of run we need to stay on,
Reddick said. Weve gotten to a point where
were clicking on all cylinders.
The As have won a season-best five games in
a row, and nine of 11.
Gray (9-3) struck out seven and walked one
while allowing three runs over six innings,
improving to 5-0 with a 0.96 ERA in his five
road starts against the Rangers. The right-hander had given up only one run in 31 1-3 innings
the previous four starts, including two shutouts
last season.
Reddick, who had a tying sac fly in the sixth,
added a two-run single with two outs in the seventh after Ben Zobrist drew a bases-loaded walk
off Sam Freeman to break a 3-3 tie.
That was after Gray had thrown the last of his
92 pitches and given up nine hits on a hot day
in Texas. As manager Bob Melvin said he got

Sports brief
Penn State Altoona softball
player charged for hit batter
ALTOONA, Pa. A Penn State Altoona
softball player is discussing a plea deal with
prosecutors on assault charges for hitting a
batter with a pitch during practice.
20-year-old Katelynn Burge faces one

no argument from the


righty about taking him
out.
He knew it was the right
thing, Melvin said. He
battles himself sometimes.
He can be as tough on himself as opposed to battling
the opponent, and there are
Josh Reddick periods during the season
when you just dont feel
completely locked in, which is odd to hear
about him.
Tyler Clippard, the fourth Oakland pitcher,
worked a perfect ninth for his 13th save in 15
chances. He hadnt pitched since Saturday and
Sunday, when he was the first As reliever since
1996 with saves of three or more outs on consecutive days.
Oakland is headed home for a weekend series
against the Royals. They had a contentious
series in Kansas City in April when the benches
cleared in all three games.
Mitch Moreland had three hits for Texas,
which has lost five in a row for the first time
under new manager Jeff Banister. Morelands
ninth homer led off the fourth, an inning before
his RBI single.
Texas starter Colby Lewis had walked only
two batters his previous 33 innings before three
count of misdemeanor simple assault and
harassment, The Altoona Mirror reported.
Burge, a sophomore last season, is
accused of hitting her teammate in retaliation at a practice in Myrtle Beach, South
Carolina in April. University police said
Burge suspected her teammate snitched on a
coach for allegedly violating the schools
alcohol policy. Its not clear whether the
teammate reported any wrongdoing or
whether the coach violated any policy.

Can Marriage Exist Between

Science And Religion?


By Paul Larson
MILLBRAE

Some say that


science and religion
dont mix. Some
say that science is
the ultimate search
for God. Some say
religion supersedes
science, some say both have equal stature
and others say both are hogwash. Everyone
has their own personal assessment of the
correlation between science and religion.
The aspiration of religion along with the
aspiration of science is to explain the
universe and answer questions about life, in
addition to satisfying human psychological
needs when dealing with the realities of
death. Religion is based on faith, science is
based on observation, and both are based on
human curiosity and the need to find
answers. Whether a person is repetitively
reading religious scripture, or fascinated by
repeatable scientific experimentations, both
are searching for methods that answer
questions about the universe around us.
It can be debated that early humans
turned to religion as a way to alleviate their
fears and gain reassurance with the concept
of life after death. This helped to give them
a sense of order in a confusing world that
often seemed mysterious.
Eventually
scientific realization evolved along side
religion and the process of trial and error
established itself as a way to solve some of
these mysteries. Firethe wheelfarming.
The more humans observed the world they
lived in, the more they leaned how the
natural world worked and how they could
manipulate it to their advantage. Over the
centuries religious power came at odds with
scientific discovery, which led to a period of

scientific stagnation: The Dark Ages.


Later at the dawn of The Renaissance
science was again embraced leading to great
advances in art, architecture, medicine,
astronomy and other natural sciences. Over
the ages science and religion have been
evolving together on a roller coaster ride of
acceptance, denial and equilibrium.
We now appear to be at a crossroads
where religion is not only viewing science
with an evaluative broadmindedness, but is
exploring hand in hand with scientific
processes. One prime example is the
Vaticans
Pontifical
Academy
of
Sciences. Quoting John Paul II: ...today
eminent scientists are members a visible
sign of the profound harmony that can
exist between the truths of science and the
truths of faith.... Gregor Mendel, the father
of Genetics, was an Augustinian Friar.
Georges Lemaitre, who developed much of
the Big Bang Theory, was a Belgian priest.
Recently, Pope Francis, who has a Masters
Degree in Chemistry, insisted that there is
no reason to believe that science and God
are incompatible.
With all this in mind, every human being
is unique as a fingerprint, and every human
brain has its own unique consciousness.
Whether you analyze with your religious cap
or your science cap, matrimony between the
two could be found by looking inward. So,
close your eyes, examine your deep
thoughts, and you may detect a rational
enlightenment finely attuned to both.

funeral matters or want to make preplanning arrangements please feel free to

tied the game at 2 on No. 9 hitter Fulds two-out,

Oakland loaded the bases again with three
consecutive singles, two of them infield hits, to
start the sixth. Reddick had a sac fly before
Lewis 100th and final pitch, a grounder that ricocheted off his foot to second baseman
Rougned Odor for an inning-ending 1-4-3
putout.
I flat just let them back in the ballgame and
beat myself in the fifth. ... Thats basically what
happened, Lewis said. Its solely on myself. I
got in a 3-2 count with Fuld there and threw
three fastballs right in same spot and he wound
up hitting it. That might have sparked them a
little bit.
Keone Kela (4-5) got the first two outs of the
seventh before consecutive singles and giving
way to Freeman, who failed to retire any of the

Pressure on Morgan to step up her scoring


By Anne M. Peterson

have to get on with it. We cant really dwell


on the fact we wont have them out on the
field.
China coach Hao Wei was peppered with
questions Thursday about whether the team
was seeking revenge either for that 1999
loss or the winless streak.
I dont think it is vengeance or anything
like that, Hao said. It is just a match. We
just have our usual mindset about the game.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OTTAWA, Ontario The last time the


United States played China in the Womens
World Cup was in the 1999 final at the Rose
Bowl, when the Americans won on penalty
kicks for their second title and Brandi
Chastain famously ripped off her jersey.
The teams meet again Friday night, with
the winner advancing to a semifinal against
top-ranked Germany or No. 3 France, and the
Americans still are seeking their third title.
The United States has a 24-game unbeaten
streak against China dating to 2003.
After scoring just six goals in their first
four games, the Americans look to Alex
Morgan for offense. The 25-year-old star
forward was sidelined by a bone bruise in her
left knee from April 11 until June 8, made
her first start of the tournament in the groupstage finale against Nigeria and scored her
first goal in Mondays 2-0 round-of-16 win
over Colombia.
I feel better and better each game,
Morgan said. Im seeing my speed, my
change of direction, my shot coming back.
It feels good and hopefully in the next
games it will feel great.
The Americans will be missing midfielders
Megan Rapinoe and Lauren Holiday, suspended because of yellow card accumulation.
Morgan Brian, 22, and 26-year-old Christen
Press are likely to take their spots in the
starting lineup against China.
Rapinoe has been one of the most creative
and dangerous players in Canada, while
Holiday has been steady and dependable.

ERICH SCHLEGEL/USA TODAY SPORTS

U.S. striker Alex Morgan scores against


Colombia for her first goal of the 2015
Womens World Cup. With two key midfielders
out for the Americans, Morgan will have to
be one player to pick up the slack.
Theyre definitely both incredible players, great for our team. Theyre going to be
missed, for sure, fellow midfielder Carli
Lloyd said. But it is what it is. We kind of

Coach Jill Ellis has said Brian will likely


replace Holiday in the middle of the midfield
alongside Lloyd, while its widely expected
Press will start in Rapinoes left flank spot.
Brian is the youngest player on the U.S.
team.
Mo has played significant minutes in our
games, Ellis said. Weve partnered her
specifically with Carli and Lauren at times
so she could be confident in that position.
Shes a tremendous ball distributor, good on
services, so we have other options there for
us.
Ellis could slide Tobin Heath to the left
flank and use Press on the right. Press started against Australia in the teams World Cup
opener and scored a goal.
Veteran Heather OReilly is also available.

Scouting China
China advanced to the knockout stage by
finishing second to host Canada in Group A.
After falling 1-0 to the Canadians on
Christine Sinclairs penalty kick in secondhalf stoppage time, China beat the

Netherlands and played a 2-2 draw with New


Zealand.
Wang ShanShan scored early and 16thranked China hung on to defeat Cameroon 10 last Saturday to open the elimination
round. A number of players from the U.S.
team attended the match at Commonwealth
Stadium.
China has played in the World Cup six
times but missed out four years ago in
Germany. The Steel Roses have never won a
title.

The U.S. path


The United States defeated Australia 3-1 in
the tournament opener, with Rapinoe scoring twice. Then came a scoreless draw with
fifth-ranked Sweden, one of the top matches
of the group stage, before a 1-0 victory over
Nigeria to finish atop Group D. The U.S.
faced No. 26 Colombia to open the knockout stage, winning 2-0 but scoring only in
the second half when Colombia was a player
down. Abby Wambach missed a penalty kick
during the match.

Looking ahead
The winner will make the short trip to
Montreals Olympic Stadium for a semifinal
Tuesday.
Tenth-ranked Australia, which upset No. 7
Brazil in the round of 16, will face defending
champion Japan, ranked fourth, in a quarterfinal match Saturday in Edmonton, Alberta.
Host Canada, ranked eighth, plays No. 6
England in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The winners will face off in the semifinals in
Edmonton on Wednesday.

Watson leads U.S. Senior Open after first round


By Antonio Gonzalez
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO Tom Watson has


accomplished more in golf than most players ever will. The 65-year-old nearly pulled
off a feat Thursday even he had never done:
shoot his age in a major championship.
So what if its the senior tour?
Watson took advantage of cooler morning
conditions to shoot a 4-under 66, grabbing
a one-stroke lead after the opening round of
the sun-banked U.S. Senior Open.
All that prevented Watson from matching
his age on the scorecard was a 35-foot putt
on his final hole.
Man, did I want to make that putt. I was

grinding on that putt


more than any putt in a
long time, Watson said.
Shoot my age in a U.S.
Open
championship?
That would have been
pretty special.
Instead,
the
putt
stopped short and he setTom Watson tled for par about the
only thing that didnt
work out well for Watson over his final nine
holes.
With the temperature soaring over 100
degrees in the afternoon, Watson worked
through Del Paso Country Club before the
scorching heat in Californias capital city
intensified. The eight-time major champion

overcame an early double bogey and had


four birdies in a six-hole stretch after the
turn.
It shows these great old champs are great
old champs for a reason, said Michael
Allen, among a group of players who shot
67.
Allen was joined by Lee Janzen, Jeff Hart,
Jim Carter, P.H. Horgan and Woody Austin.
Defending champion Colin Montgomerie
and Champions Tour stalwart Bernhard
Langer, who have won six of the last seven
senior majors, teed off in the afternoon heat
and also had to deal with firmer and faster
greens. Montgomerie shot 68, and Langer
71.
But this day belonged to one of the most
decorated players in golf history, one whose

storied career is about to take a major shift.


Watson will play in his final British Open
next month at St. Andrews. Hes the only
man to claim the claret jug on five courses
(but never St. Andrews).
While one chapter of his career is closing,
another seems just fine.
Watson is one of the biggest draws on the
Champions Tour when he plays, that is
along with 1992 Masters champion Fred
Couples, who withdrew earlier this week
with a back injury.
Watson has won 14 times on the
Champions Tour, which is reserved for

Warriors draft UCLA PF Kevon Looney


By Michael Wagaman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND The Golden State Warriors


drafted UCLA forward Kevon Looney with
the 30th and final pick of the first round.
Six days after the parade celebrating their
first NBA championship in 40 years left city
streets awash in blue and gold confetti, the
Warriors added the 6-foot-9, 220-pound
Looney with their first draft pick in three
years.
Because Golden State had one of the deepest teams in the NBA last season a squad
built largely through the draft the
Warriors had the luxury of drafting a player

wearing a red jacket, bowtie and shoes that
matched the Buckeyes school colors.
Red was the color of choice in the green
room, though Towns wore a grey jacket and
Russells table later turned gold when his
supporters donned Lakers hats.
He drew huge cheers when he was
announced but his crowd was dwarfed by
Towns. The New Jersey native said he had
above 50 family and friends in attendance.
This is home to me, he said. Been able

been rumors of this Major League player or
that one being gay, but thats just idle chatter
and counts for nothing, Thorn said. In terms
of an openly gay player as (the) pitcher in
your neck of the woods, we havent had one
yet.
Conroy, a right-hander who has earned four
saves and allowed only two hits in the seven
innings he has pitched so far as a closer for
the 15-3 Stompers, said he had been open
with his high school, summer league and college teams and told his family he was gay at
age 16. It would have been strange not to do
the same once he moved across the country
and started making friends on the team in
Sonoma, he said.
People would talk about their girlfriends
and who they were going out to see that night.

without the need for him


to make an immediate
impact.
Looney averaged 11.6
points and 9.2 rebounds
during his only season at
UCLA. Looney led all
college freshmen with 15
double-doubles
while
Kevon Looney helping the Bruins to the
Sweet 16.
Golden State didnt have a selection in
either 2013 or 14, having traded the picks
away. One of those trades resulted in the
Warriors getting Andre Iguodala, who was
the MVP of the NBA Finals during the teams

championship run.
Looney, who played power forward with
the Bruins, is a physical rebounder who can
also score from the perimeter. He was
UCLAs best 3-point shooter last season
when he shot 41.5 percent from beyond the
arc.
That should make him a good fit with
Golden States Splash Brothers guards
Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Curry,
the NBA regular-season MVP, broke his own
NBA record for 3-pointers this season with
286.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr was certainly
relaxed while waiting more than three hours
until Golden State made its pick. At one

point he walked by where the media was


assembled wearing blue shorts and a gray
team T-shirt.
There had been speculation that Golden
State might try to trade forward David Lee in
a draft-day move, but nothing happened. Lee
is entering the final year of his contract and
will earn nearly $15.5 million next season.
Lee is still likely to be moved, though
probably not until free agency begins in
July.
One player who will be coming back to
help the Warriors defend their championship
is guard Brandon Rush, who exercised his
player option for the 2015-16 season earlier
in the day.

to come here and have all my closest friends


and love ones come out here. Its the most
special moments in my life.
The 6-foot-11 Towns averaged 10. 3
points and 6.7 rebounds in just 21 minutes
per game, as Kentucky used a platoon system in winning its first 38 games and reaching the Final Four.
It was Kentuckys third No. 1 pick in the
last six years, joining Anthony Davis in
2012 and John Wall in 2010. The Wildcats
were hoping to have a record seven players
picked and were well on their way when
Sacramento took center Willie Cauley-Stein
with the sixth pick, Utah grabbed Trey
Lyles at No. 12 and guard Devin Booker followed one spot later to Phoenix.
Booker, at 18 the youngest player in the

draft, gave the Wildcats a record-tying four


players among the top 14 selections. Duke
in 1999 and North Carolina in 2005 also
had four lottery picks.
Just shows our team was special. Unlike
any other, Lyles said. Still got three other
guys going to go tonight.
It was the sixth straight year a freshman
was the No. 1 pick.
For weeks, Towns and Dukes Jahlil
Okafor had been considered the top two
selections. But the Lakers instead decided
on backcourt help with a player who can
step right in and play alongside Bryant in
what could be the superstars final season.
Kobes a great dude, Russell said. Not
knowing how much he has left in the tank is
the scary thing. Im really looking forward

to him taking me under his wing if possible


and feed me the most knowledge he can and
use that as fire against my opponents.
Okafor fell to the Philadelphia 76ers at
No. 3, becoming the 19th lottery selection
and 29th first-round pick most in NCAA
history under coach Mike Krzyzewski.
Those numbers increased when Miami drafted Justise Winslow 10th.
The Knicks ended the run of one-anddones when they took Porzingis with the
No. 4 pick. The 19-year-old forward had
been surging up draft boards but Knicks
fans, who havent forgotten the drafting of
Frederic Weis and were underwhelmed by the
acquisition of Andrea Bargnani, wanted no
part of him, booing lustily after his name
was called by Silver.

As a small independent team we do try to find ways to be relevant,


and this is certainly in that category. But I think the (San Francisco)
Giants would do the exact same thing if they were in this situation.
Theo Fightmaster, Sonoma Stompers general manager

Instead of getting the different looks or questions when I didnt join them, Id rather tell
you the truth and let you know who I am and
have real conversations instead of the fake
ones, Conroy said.
As far as coming out publicly, Conroy said
he regards it as a way to help his team and to
set an example for other players.
Its not that I wanted it to go public, but I
didnt care if it was open information. Its who
I am, he said. I am definitely surprised that
no one else has been openly gay in baseball
yet.
Bean, who serves as Major League
Baseballs ambassador of inclusion, called
Conroy a pioneer.

It will be a great day for the LGBT community. I hope he pitches well and gets another
opportunity to start another game, Bean
said. It doesnt matter if he pitches in the big
leagues or not, hes going to become a leader
(tonight) in many ways, an influential leader
for a lot of young kids not only in that community but those who will read the story and
who may be pondering that same decision in
their teenage years and they want to be baseball players or they want to be football players.
Conroys history-making start comes at a
watershed moment for gay rights, with the
U.S. Supreme Court scheduled to rule any day
now on whether to make same-sex marriage

legal across the nation.


The Stompers did not plan to make a special
announcement or call attention to the milestone so Conroy can focus on his pitching,
Fightmaster said.
As a small independent team we do try to
find ways to be relevant, and this is certainly
in that category. But I think the Giants would
do the exact same thing if they were in this
situation, he said.
The life of a Stomper is certainly a far cry
from the majors. Players live with host families during the June-to-August season, earn
$650 a month on average and supply their
own cleats, batting gloves and elbow guards.
Arnold Field, their home turf, seats 370 people.
Conroy hoped to catch the eye of a big
league scout but hasnt focused on much
beyond this season.
Im just looking to play well and do as well
as I can wherever they put me, he said.

Valhalla in Louisville, Kentucky.
Now hes in position to end that
drought.
The lone hiccup on Watsons
opening round came when he
plugged his approach on the 16th
hole in the gnarly rough along the
bank of the lake and finished with
a double bogey. Watson recovered
with four birdies on his back nine
including a 50-foot putt on the
second to surge to the top of the
leaderboard.
As the sun skied over the Central
Valley late in Watsons round,
spectators crowded in the shade
along the rough instead of the
ropes around the green. Some
gathered around cooling stations,
and others brought umbrellas and
tiny electric fans to try to keep
cool.
Many players walked out of
their way on the rough to stay in
what little shade Del Paso provided. Watson, meanwhile, scribbled
notes on his yardage book to prepare for his afternoon tee time
Friday, when the temperature is
expected to rise above 100 again.
Usually, you have your diagram
on your book that says all right,
heres the bunker, heres the green
like this, Watson said, pointing.
Now you have a diagram, heres
the shade over here, the shade over
here, theres a shade behind the tee
over there. Thats what youre
looking for right now.

Will Middlebrooks tripled for the Padres.
Chris Heston (8-5), who pitched a no-hitter at the New York Mets on June 9, won for
the third time in four starts. He gave up two
runs and five hits in seven innings, struck
out six and walked one.
I had command of the strike zone,
Heston said. I was able to work both sides
of the plate.
James Shields (7-2) allowed seven runs
his most since June last year and nine hits
in four-plus innings, his shortest outing this
season.
They jumped on me early to get a couple
of runs, Shields said. After that, I felt like I
was pitching well. In the fourth, they got
some hits when I executed pitches and they
just found holes. Pagan was a 3-2 changeup
out of the zone and Posey hit one a foot off
the plate and down and he managed to poke it
into right.
San Diego closed to 9-8 with a six-run
eighth, when Matt Kemp hit a two-run homer
and four pinch hitters reached base.
Jeremy Affledt gave up consecutive doubles to pinch-hitters Yangervis Solarte and
Clint Barmes ahead of Kemps drive to center. Pinch-hitter Derek Norris walked and
Yonder Alfonso singled against Javier
Lopez.
That felt good and we got back in it,
Kemp said. We still have a lot of fight left
in us.
Sergio Romo got two outs, but consecutive singles by Alexi Amarista and pinchhitter Brett Wallace drove in runs. Solarte
singled in his second at-bat of the inning to
cut the deficit to one run before Romo retired
Barmes on a popout.
San Francisco scored four runs in the bottom half against Shawn Kelley and Brandon
Maurer on Poseys two-run double,
Crawfords RBI double and Duffys RBI single.

Giants hope latest draftees


become World Series fixtures
By Jeffrey Devoto
SPECIAL TO THE DAILY JOURNAL

The San Francisco Giants, who have had


considerable success in building a successful farm system and graduating key players
to the major league roster, hope the 2015
draft class can approach the classes that
produced many of the key players who
helped lead the Giants to three World Series
titles in ve years.
John Barr, the Giants scouting director
and assistant GM was pleased with the
Giants selections during the 2015 Major
League Baseball Draft held earlier this
month, especially the rst pitcher and batter chosen.
A good day for us, Barr said. Were very
excited and happy to be able to select two
players that we think can help us down the
line. To be able to get a power arm and a
power bat with our rst two picks, were
pretty excited about it. The room has been
pretty happy.
The Giants selected three college pitchers
out of the rst ve picks. With their rst
pick in the draft (18th overall) the Giants
selected Phil Bickford, a 20-year-old right
hander out of the College of Southern
Nevada. In the second round, they grabbed
Andrew Suarez, a 22-year-old lefty out of the
University of Miami. With their fth pick,
they chose another lefty Mac Marshall a
22-year-old out of Chipola College in
Florida.
Bickford reminds some of Tim Lincecum
with his raw stuff that includes a fastball in
the mid 90s and a power curve. Scouts say
Suarez has tantalizing stuff and was drafted 57th overall last year but chose to return
to the University of Miami. Marshall comes
out of high school powerhouse (Park View

High School) and was drafted (21st round)


by the Astros last year but did not sign.
The power bat to whom Barr was referring is a power hitting corner inelder,
Chris Shaw, the Giants third overall pick in
the second round out of Boston
College. Shaw bats left and throws right
and got a lot of attention from his performance in the Cape Cod League last summer, a
wood-bat league that serves as excellent
scouting ground. Many considered Shaw to
have the most power of anyone in this years
draft class. Barr said Shaw showed a lot of
power but yet a disciplined approach at the
plate.
Hes a guy we think has a legitimate
chance of hitting in the middle of the lineup, he said.
Jalen Miller, an Atlanta-area high school
shortstop was the Giants fourth pick and
has been compared to Brandon Phillips
the successful Cincinnati Reds second baseman who also played high school ball in
Georgia. Scouts say he has good instincts,
can hit for some power (15+ HRs) and could
end up like Phillips at second base.
Jose Vizcaino Jr, a third baseman out of
Santa Clara University and the son of the
former major leaguer, was their seventh
pick.
They then took a couple more college
players with center elders Ronnie Jebavy
(Middle Tennessee State) and Steven Duggar
(Clemson) with the sixth and seventh picks
overall and a couple more right-handed
pitchers to round out the top 10 picks
Cory Talyor (Dallas Baptist) and David
Graybill (Arizona State).
Baseball America ranked San Franciscos
farm system 26th out of the 30 major league
clubs in 2014, 18th in 2013, and 28th in
2012.

Appeals court: Judge properly


dismissed the Braun lawsuit
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MADISON, Wis. A judge properly dismissed a lawsuit alleging Milwaukee Brewers


slugger Ryan Braun libeled a former friend who
helped him fight allegations he used steroids, a
state appeals court ruled
Thursday.
The 1st District Court of
Appeals
agreed that
Milwaukee County Circuit
Judge Paul Van Grunsven
properly exercised his discretion when he tossed out
Ryan Braun Ralph Sassons lawsuit last
summer, noting that
Sasson never produced any evidence that Braun
made disparaging remarks about him in writing
and that Sasson violated an order to keep discovery materials secret.
Sasson filed the lawsuit in July 2013, shortly

after Major League Baseball suspended Braun for


the rest of that season after the five-time All-Star
acknowledged using performance-enhancing
drugs.
Sasson described himself in filings with the
appellate court as a law student and a close friend
of Brauns for the last 15 years. He alleged that
Brauns agent, Onesimo Balelo, contacted him
in 2011 and asked him to help research defenses
against potential punishments Braun might
face for testing positive for steroids. Braun tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone
following his 2011 National League MVP season but avoided a 2012 suspension after challenging the chain of custody of his urine sample.
Sasson and Brauns camp got into a dispute
over Sassons compensation but he was ultimately paid about $7,000. Immediately after he
was paid, Sasson alleged, Braun began making
false and derogatory statements about him.

Overstuffed plot spoils


irreverent, silly Ted 2
By Lindsey Bahr
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Ted 2 asks a question that we never


needed, or particularly wanted, to know the
answer to: Is Ted, the magical, foulmouthed, pot-smoking teddy bear, a person in the eyes of the law?
While its unfair to judge a comedy simply for a ridiculous premise, here, it also
happens to be the unlikely killer of the
overstuffed Ted 2. And resolution does
not come quickly enough in this nearly
two-hour rumination on civil rights and
abject stupidity.
Part of the charm of Ted, writer-director Seth MacFarlanes better-than-itshould-have-been story of a grown man
and his sentient stuffed animal, was how

unaffectedly it treated its talking teddy. Ted


just is. No one thinks too hard about the
why of it. Combining that silly foundation with Mark Wahlbergs endearingly
dopey intensity was a stroke of brilliance.
The movie was allowed to only be about
their friendship, and it worked.
Making a sequel to an original comedy is
always a tough game, though. More often
than not, the desire to please fans and
recreate the magic of the first produces
nothing more than an exaggerated rehash.
In an admirable effort to go a different
route, MacFarlane has instead done something hopelessly bizarre: Hes given his
film too much sincerity and story, and it
practically crushes whatever fun does
exist.
This time, we meet up with Ted (voiced

again by MacFarlane) at his wedding to


fellow grocery store clerk and gumsmacking bombshell Tami-Lynn
(Jessica Barth). Their newlywed bliss
soon curdles and they decide to have a
baby to save the marriage.
Because the natural way of going
about this business is not an option
(for a few reasons), Tami-Lynn and
Ted decide to try adoption. Its then
that a state authority asks whether
or not a stuffed animal should be
afforded the rights of a human.
And very quickly after that, Ted
loses his job, his marriage is invalidated, and audiences are forced to
endure a horrifying thing: a whiny,

Seth MacFarlane: Some media

Seth MacFarlane dismisses the notion that

millions of people are receiving. This is
no longer about a law, he said in the White
House Rose Garden. This is health care in
America.
Declining to concede, House Speaker
John Boehner of Ohio said Republicans,
who have voted more than 50 times to undo
the law, will continue our efforts to repeal
the law and replace it with patient-centered
solutions that meet the needs of seniors,
small business owners, and middle-class
families. However, he declined to commit
to a vote this year.
Several Republican presidential candidates said they would continue the fight,
ensuring it will be an issue in the campaign.
Other legal challenges are working their
way through the courts, but they appear to
pose lesser threats to the law, which passed
Congress without a single Republican vote
in 2010 and has now withstood two stern
challenges at the Supreme Court.
At the court, Chief Justice John Roberts
again wrote the opinion in support of the
law, just as he did in 2012. His four liberal
colleagues were with him three years ago
and again on Thursday. Justice Anthony
Kennedy, a dissenter in 2012, was part of

LEGACY

Congress paved the way for an Asia-Pacific
trade pact at the center of the presidents
international agenda. The Supreme Court
also handed Obama a surprise win by
upholding a key tool used to fight housing
discrimination.
This was a good day for America,
Obama said, speaking from the White
House Rose Garden shortly after the court
rulings.
For a president deep into his second
term, the legal and legislative victories
were a vindication of policy priorities that
have sapped his political capital and
exposed rifts with his own Democratic
Party. The back-to-back successes also
energized a weary White House, with senior officials and longtime advisers making

THE DAILY JOURNAL

the majority this time.


Roberts said that to read the law the way
challengers wanted limiting tax credits
to people who live in states that set up their
own health insurance marketplaces
would lead to a calamitous result that
Congress could not have intended.
Congress passed the Affordable Care Act
to improve health insurance markets, not to
destroy them, Roberts declared in the
majority opinion.
Justice Antonin Scalia, in a dissent he
summarized from the bench, strongly disagreed. We should start calling this law
SCOTUScare, he said, using an acronym
for the Supreme Court and suggesting his
colleagues ownership of the law by virtue
of their twice stepping in to save it from
what he considered worthy challenges.
His comment drew a smile from Roberts,
his seatmate and the object of Scalias ire.
Scalia said that Roberts 2012 decision
that upheld the law and his opinion on
Thursday will publish forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the
United States favors some laws over others
and is prepared to do whatever it takes to
uphold and assist its favorites.
Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence
Thomas joined the dissent, as they did in
2012.
Nationally, 10.2 million people have
signed up for health insurance under the law.
That includes 8.7 million who are receiving

an average subsidy of $272 a month to help


pay their premiums. Of those receiving subsidies, 6.4 million were at risk of losing
that aid because they live in states that did
not set up their own insurance exchanges.
The health insurance industry breathed a
sigh of relief, and a national organization
representing state regulators from both
political parties said the courts decision
will mean stable markets for consumers.
Shares of publicly traded hospital operators including HCA Holdings Inc. and Tenet
Healthcare Corp. soared after the ruling.
Investors had worried that many patients
would drop their coverage if they no longer
had tax credits to help pay.
The legal case against nationwide subsidies relied on four words established by
the state in the more than 900-page law.
The laws opponents argued that the vast
majority of people who now get help paying for premiums are ineligible for their federal tax credits. That is because roughly
three dozen states opted against creating
their own health insurance marketplaces, or
exchanges, and instead rely on the federal
healthcare.gov site to help people find coverage if they dont have it through their
jobs.
In the challengers view, the phrase
established by the state demonstrated that
subsidies were to be available only to people in states that set up their own
exchanges.

The administration,
congressional
Democrats and 22 states responded that it
would make no sense to interpret the law
that way. The idea was to decrease the number of uninsured, preventing insurers from
denying coverage because of pre-existing
health conditions, requiring almost everyone to be insured and providing financial
help to those who otherwise would spend
too much of their paychecks on premiums.
The point of the last piece, the subsidies,
is to keep enough people in the pool of
insured to avoid triggering a disastrous
decline in enrollment, a growing proportion of less healthy people and then premium increases.
Several portions of the law indicate that
consumers can claim tax credits no matter
where they live. No member of Congress
said at the time that subsidies would be limited, and several states said in a separate
brief to the court that they had no inkling
they had to set up their own exchanges for
their residents to get tax credits.
Roberts pointed out that the law contains more than a few examples of inartful
drafting, including three separate sections
numbered 1563. He said the courts duty was
to read the provision at issue in context and
with the larger picture in mind.
In Scalias view, Roberts was engaging in
somersaults of statutory interpretation
that were redolent of the chief justices
efforts to save the law in 2012.

little effort to hide their glee.


I dont think that a lot of people expected that a lame-duck president could still
very actively lead on every major issue
being debated today, said Bill Burton, a
former White House and campaign adviser
to Obama.
The coming days could bring further clarity to presidents legacy, as U.S. negotiators work feverishly to finalize a nuclear
deal with Iran ahead of a June 30 deadline.
While securing an elusive agreement would
mark a major foreign policy breakthrough
for Obama, it could be months or even
years before its known if a deal successfully prevents Iran from building a bomb.
Against the backdrop of his recent successes, Obama will also confront the stark
limitations of his presidency when he travels to Charleston, South Carolina, Friday
to deliver a eulogy for victims of last
weeks massacre at a black church. Obama
has failed to make any progress on gun
control legislation, and even against the

backdrop of the tragedy in South Carolina,


he made clear he had given up hope of pursuing such measures again during his
remaining 19 months in office.
Despite the unfinished business Obama
will leave behind, Thursdays health care
ruling largely answered what has long been
one of the biggest questions looming over
his White House: Would the sweeping
health care overhaul that has fueled so
much Republican hostility toward Obama
survive his presidency?
Now, that answer is all but guaranteed to
be yes.
The Supreme Court ruling marked the second time the justices have saved the health
care law, with Roberts writing the majority
opinion both times. In an ironic twist,
Obama as a senator voted against Roberts
when he was nominated by former
Republican President George W. Bush.
While House Republicans may still hold
votes to repeal the health care measure, as
they have already done more than 50

times, the Senate and Obamas veto power


prevent such efforts from going any further. And even if Obama is succeeded by a
Republican president, fully repealing the
law could become less politically palatable
given the millions of Americans who have
gained health care coverage through its
mandates.
The 6-3 decision is strong validation of
the constitutionality of the law, White
House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said of
the courts ruling. Coupled with over 16
million people who currently have health
care who didnt have it before, that makes
it very difficult to unwind.
Still, some Republican presidential candidates insisted that remained their goal.
This decision is not the end of the fight
against Obamacare, said Jeb Bush, the
former Florida governor. I will work with
Congress to repeal and replace this flawed
law with conservative reforms that empower consumers with more choices and control over their health care decisions.

Hepburns son recalls moms life and kitchen in new book


By Jocrlyn Noveck
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Timing is everything with fegato alla Veneziana. Cook it just a moment too long and the meat becomes tough and inedible.

NEW YORK Think of Audrey Hepburn, and your mind


will likely conjure up an extraordinarily elegant woman in
a boat-necked black dress, huge sunglasses, gloves to the
elbow, and a chic updo.
Its doubtful youll picture a woman in jeans and T-shirt
settling down in front of the TV with a plate of penne and
gasp! ketchup.
But thats the image that her son, Luca Dotti, wants you
to get to know. In Audrey at Home, an inviting cookbook
filled with intimate family photos and memories, he paints
a picture of a woman who was happier at home than on a
movie set or, really, anywhere else even though the
press, he says, had a hard time believing that.
Yes, she was an international star, but she was Mrs.
Dotti to me, says Dotti, a Rome-based graphic designer
who is the son of Hepburn and her second husband, Andrea
Dotti. And she loved her home life the most. I wanted to
bring these two worlds together, the public perception of
her, and the woman that I knew.
The inspiration for the book came, Dotti says, from a
binder he found in his mothers kitchen, filled with recipes
and little notes. It was from the 50s when she had just gotten married (to her first husband) and was starting out as a
wife, Dotti says. They were mostly elaborate and fancy
recipes. But in the end, she eventually came to what worked
for her and what reflected her style and her life. Those simpler recipes, he says, form the core of the book.
And so, for example, Dotti begins with hutspot, a nod to
Holland, where Hepburn born in Belgium to a Dutch
mother and British father spent her difficult youth, near-

Summer means time for some lemon (or lime) with that lager
By Michelle Locke
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Dont let lifes lemons sour your summer.


Use them to sour your beer, instead.
Its whats called a shandy, a refreshing
drink that classically is beer mixed with
lemonade, though other flavors can be used.
It has been a seasonal staple in Europe since
at least the mid-1800s when British drinkers
ordered their shandygaff, often beer mixed
with ginger ale.
But lately its been showing up on
American cocktail menus and supermarket
shelves, with new bottled and canned varieties on the market and bartenders experimenting with their own fruity beer combos.
Shandies have gained tremendous
momentum the past several years, and we
dont see this slowing down anytime soon,
says Danelle Kosmal, vice president, alcoholic beverages, for market research firm
Nielsen.
In fact, while shandy sales remain a tiny
niche of the overall multibillion dollar beer
market, sales have grown 15 percent by volume and 18 percent by value over the past 52

weeks, Nielsen data show.


Brands on the market include MillerCoors
Leinenkugels Summer Shandy and Samuel
Adams Porch Rocker from Boston Beer Co.,
as well as Shock Top Lemon Shandy from
Anheuser-Busch.
Also
in
stores,
Narragansett Dels Shandy, made in collaboration with Dels Lemonade, a Rhode Island
institution, and Curious Traveler Lemon
Shandy from The Traveler Beer Co., part of
Boston Beer Co.s Vermont-based Alchemy
& Science subsidiary.
Lemon mixes are a zesty classic, but
shandies arent always made with lemonade,
and they arent always called shandy.
In Germany, the drink is known as radler,
or bicyclist, because the fruity, lower-alcohol drink was considered just the thing to
refresh a weary cyclist, says Armin Buehler,
senior market manager for Radeberger
Gruppe
USA,
which
introduced
Schofferhofer Grapefruit Hefeweizen (wheat
beer) in 2013.
It sounds a little out there. Grapefruit?
Beer? But in the case of Schofferhofer, the
grapefruit shandy is refreshing with a strong
but not overpowering taste of citrus harmo-

nizing with the yeasty


beer. And grapefruit
turns out to be a
trend within a
trend.

Buehler likes Schofferhoffer
Grapefruit as an outdoor drink.
I envision myself being on a
rooftop seeing the sun go
down, drinking that, he says,
though he also finds it makes a
great mixer.
Beer cocktails have been a
trend for a while now and the
shandy surge is giving them an
extra kick.
Take the Shandy slushy, a
summer offering of Narragansett
lager and lemon shaved ice that is

branch of Toro, the Barcelona-inspired tapas
bar from chefs Ken Oringer and
Jamie Bissonnette.
Beverage Director Caitlin
Doonan, who has spent
some time on Rhode Island
beaches, was inspired by the
popularity of the frozen
Dels Lemonade sold there in
summer to create Shandy
slushy, a mix of Narragansett
beer with a house-made lemon
shaved ice. Depending on
how well the slushy does,
shes got a few other variations in mind, including
grapefruit.
The idea is to have fun with a
drink thats a little bit lower in
alcohol and a departure from
some of the oh-so-serious
drinks that have been dominating cocktail menus recently.
This was a way for us to have
something thats a little bit
tongue in cheek, Doonan says.

ture to be completely unfunny. Even A


Million Ways to Die in the West had
moments. The highlights in Ted 2 are
almost worth it. Theres a Busby Berkeleystyle opening number, a fantastic Liam
Neeson cameo, a riff on what the F stands
for in F. Scott Fitzgerald, a Jurassic Park
bit and a few others.
Theres even an over-the-top fight at New
York Comic-Con (with more than a few
Transformers peppering in the background, though its unclear whether thats
poking fun at Wahlbergs association with
the franchise or promoting it).The sequence
had some promise in spite of the vitriol
fueling the joke, but its all too late.
MacFarlane continues to be a unique and
probably misunderstood artist in popular
culture. His venomous humor, basic moral

code, crass sensibilities and fondness for


classic showmanship are, at the very least,
an interesting combination for a modern
entertainer. But they havent quite meshed
yet, at least on film.
The misadventures of a couple of crass
knuckleheads should be simple fun, and its
quite all right to try for a more substantive
story in something so trivial. But the silliness of the first has ceded to something
thats also a little more hateful and bitter.
Ted and John shouldve stayed on the
couch and out of the courtroom.
Ted 2, a Universal Pictures release, is
rated R by the Motion Picture Association
of America for crude and sexual content,
pervasive language, and some drug use.
Running time: 115 minutes. One and a half
stars out of four.

THE DAILY JOURNAL


3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon unsalted
butter
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 medium white onions, peeled and finely
chopped
1 pinch sugar
1 pound calfs liver, thinly sliced
Splash sherry vinegar or lemon juice
(optional)
In a large skillet over very low heat, melt
the butter with the oil. Add the onions and
gently cook until translucent, but not
browned. It will take about 15 minutes.
Once they are ready, add a pinch of sugar and
stir until they are caramelized, about another 5 minutes.
Heat a second skillet over high heat.
Transfer the caramelized onions and then
the liver to the second skillet, stir for a few
minutes until the meat is seared but still
juicy. If you like extra acidity, add a splash
of vinegar or lemon juice and stir, scraping
the bits at the bottom of the pan, and serve.

Morgan Freeman, stopped and applauded
MacFarlane for having guts.
He just says Lets push the envelope a
bit and see what happens. Hes doing Ted
2, thats what happens, Freeman said
with a smile.
But Freeman feels not everyone can pull
off edgy comedy without incident.
If you got a talent, if you are clever, you
can. If youre not, you cant, Freeman
said.
MacFarlane and Freeman made the comments Wednesday at the world premiere of
their new movie, Ted 2.

TAX
Continued from page 1
The type of tax measure being considered is still up in the air, but Trustee
Patrick Flynn said either a bond or parcel tax could be necessary, as the district has suffered a structural deficit and
also needs to address more than $100
million worth of maintenance at
school campuses.
Flynn said whether the district elects
to proceed with pursuit of a tax measure
is largely dependent on the feedback
provided by residents during the
polling effort.
We havent decided to do anything
yet, he said. There are too many
moving parts to try to decide right now
whether well go for a parcel tax to
improve instruction or a bond to
improve facilities.
Under the influx of money coming to
the district from the state in the coming year, San Bruno officials were able
to back away from drastic cuts that had
previously been considered, such as
closing libraries, sharing principals
between school sites, cutting staff and
a variety of other reductions to vital
programs.
But the district is not out of the
woods yet, said Flynn, and though
some education programs were saved
through more money made available
from the state due to increased tax collections, district officials will still
face tough decisions regarding the
choice to close a school campus in the
coming years.

MILLBRAE
Continued from page 1
The release of the environmental
impact report opens the door for residents to submit input for officials to
consider regarding the plan, which targets adding a mix of new developments
to the city.
Assistant City Manager Chip Taylor
said the meeting next week will also
serve as an opportunity for residents to
receive a presentation from developers
proposing to construct the housing,
office and retail spaces.
This is really just the beginning of
the process, he said.
The momentous project, which was
first conceived in 1998, is currently
subdivided into two large developments.
Serra Station Properties has proposed
building a development containing
267,000 square feet of office space,
32,000 feet of retail space and 500
high- to medium-density residential
units which could serve families.

Flynn said whether the board elects


to proceed with the effort to close a
school will ultimately depend on the
will of residents and the school community, but a close inspection of the
fiscal sustainability of maintaining all
existing schools is required.
Considering a school closure would
have a pronounced impact on the decision to pursue a financing measure,
and the type of the tax that might be
floated to voters, said Flynn.
Some members of the school community have expressed concern that
closing a school, or cutting educational programs, might influence residents
to vote against a tax measure.
Flynn said he was aware of those
concerns,
and
hoped
new
Superintendent Cheryl Olson, who
replaces David Hutt at the helm of the
district July 1, would help re-establish
community confidence in the school
district.
I know there is a trust issue between
the public and the board and the district, he said.
The development is expected to bring
more than 1,300 residents and 1,100
employees to Millbrae, in a project that
also includes underground parking and
an enclosed galleria which connects to
the station.
Another large development is proposed immediately east of the Millbrae
station, which aims to build more than
164,000 square feet of office space,
nearly 47,000 square feet of retail space,
321 high- to medium-density housing
units and 116 hotel rooms.
The project could add about 850 residents and 868 employees to the city,
and would require relocating a bus facility near the station as well as existing
parking spaces.
There are also a variety of other sites
around the Millbrae station, near the
region of Millbrae Avenue, El Camino
Real and Rollins Road which are up for
development but have yet to be
assigned projects.
Following the discussion between
officials on Tuesday, June 30, a 45-day
window will open for residents to give
feedback on the draft environmental
review through Aug. 10.
All comments made during the feed-

Hutt was ousted by the board after


years of financial struggle, which had
forced the district to pay bills from a
deficit over a majority of the past
decade.
Olson was hired in April, along with
new Chief Business Official Sean
McGinn, to guide the district through
the financial tumult that had driven the
board to consider drastic cuts and
forced teachers starved for a raise to the
precipice of a strike.
Due to an increase of revenue allocated by the state through the Local
Control Funding Formula, which
directs money to districts with a significant amount of socioeconomically
disadvantaged students, San Bruno was
able to satisfy its teachers with their
first raise in nearly a decade.
Flynn said passing a parcel tax could
serve as a form of protection for the
district from needing to consider drastic curriculum cuts, and pay teachers a
competitive rate, among a variety of
other perks.
The district floated a parcel tax to
voters in 2012, but it only gained 58
percent support from voters, short of
the 66 percent threshold necessary to
pass.
Flynn said he is confident that the
district enjoys a better chance than in
the past of passing the tax, should
officials elect to move forward.
I think with the right planning, we
can pass a parcel tax, he said. It just
has to be done correctly, with community buy in.

back period will be addressed in the final
environmental impact report, which
will be reviewed by the Planning
Commission.
Taylor said he expects the planning
process to play out over the summer,
with expectation that it could wrap up
near September.
Some residents had an opportunity to
express their opinion on the project earlier last year, during a series of community workshops and planning meetings,
which helped shape the development.
The project is part of a vision for the
next 25 years of the region, which is
part of an effort to rejuvenate the economic viability of Millbrae.
Officials had said they looked to this
project as a crucial opportunity to build
up a region of the city which is ripe for
investment and development.
The City Council and Planning
Commission will meet Tuesday, June
30, in the Chetcuti Community Room,
450 Polar Ave. The meeting begins at 6
p.m.

Syrian rebels launch
offensive aimed at southern city
BEIRUT Syrian rebels launched an offensive Thursday to
capture government-held neighborhoods in the southern city
of Daraa, setting off fighting that killed dozens of people,
including a man struck by a shell that slammed into a market
in a nearby Jordanian border town.
Daraa is the birthplace of the uprising against President
Bashar Assad that erupted in 2011. The uprising began with
mostly peaceful protests but escalated into a full-blown civil
war after a brutal government crackdown.
The new offensive started around dawn Thursday, aiming to
liberate the city of Daraa, said Maj. Issam el Rayyes,
spokesman for the Southern Front, a coalition of several
dozen moderate rebel groups that is leading the push.
The spokesman said rebels and government troops were
clashing in several locations.
Syrian State TV said rebel shelling attacks on Daraa killed
six people and wounded 13. It said electricity was cut in the
city after a main station was hit north of Daraa.

Islamic State militants attack


two cities in northern Syria
By Bassem Mroue
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIRUT After weeks of setbacks,


militants from the Islamic State group
launched swift counteroffensives
Thursday on predominantly Kurdish
areas of northern Syria, killing and
wounding dozens and setting off car
bombs, activists and officials said.
The two-pronged attack on the
northeastern city of Hassakeh and the
border town of Kobani came two days
after an Islamic State spokesman
acknowledged that the group might
lose some battles but would not be
defeated. The spokesman, Abu
Muhammad al-Adnani, had urged militants to strike back at their foes during

the Muslim holy month of Ramadan


and shake the ground beneath them.
The early morning assault by IS captured part of Hassakeh, which has long
been divided between Syrian Kurds and
the military forces of President Bashar
Assad.
The militants also hit Kobani, a
northern town on Syrias border with
Turkey that had become a symbol of
Kurdish resistance against the Islamic
State extremists. The Kurdish forces,
backed by a campaign of U. S. -led
airstrikes, drove the militants from
Kobani and surrounding villages in
January.
Thursdays fighting in Kobani killed
35 civilians and Kurdish fighters, and
14 extremists, according to the

Britain-based Syrian Observatory for


Human Rights. It was the first time in
six months the militants, who set off
three car bombs, had managed to enter
the town, the group said.
The IS militants, wearing Syrian
rebel uniforms and carrying flags of
the mainstream Free Syrian Army to
deceive the Kurdish defenders,
launched their attack from areas to the
south and west of Kobani, said Redur
Khalil, a spokesman for the Kurdish
Peoples Protection Units, or YPG.
Ghalia Nehme, a commander with
the Kurdish Womens Protection
Units, told the Associated Press by
telephone from Kobani that its fighters were defending a position in the
town.

VIENNA With significant gaps standing in the way of an


Iran nuclear deal, foreign ministers at the seven-nation talks
are adding their diplomatic muscle to the negotiations before
a June 30 target date for an agreement.
France announced Thursday that Foreign Minister Laurent
Fabius is joining the talks in Vienna on Saturday. Iranian
media reported earlier that Foreign Minister Mohammad
Javad Zarif will fly to Vienna on Friday. Thats the day U.S.
Secretary of State John Kerry departs Washington for the
Austrian capital
Foreign ministers from the four other nations at the negotiating table Russia, China, Britain and Germany are also
expected to join in as they try to bridge differences between
the sides on the limits Tehran must accept on its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.

French interior minister


says UberPop must be closed down
PARIS Frances interior minister says that the low-cost
car service UberPop must be closed down and its vehicles
seized if caught by police carrying passengers.
The announcement Thursday came after a meeting between
Bernard Cazeneuve and striking French taxi drivers protesting
the service they say is stealing their livelihood. Cazeneuve
says he plans to meet with company officials of U.S. ridehailing company Uber, but said its cheapest service,
UberPop, must be closed.
The minister says 70 vehicles have been damaged around
France in Thursdays nationwide protests and 10 people have
been arrested.
