Sheriffs Office set to take over Millbrae police


Goal is to have county officially take over 12:01 a.m. Monday, March 5
By Heather Murtagh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Millbraes Police Department is set to close in early March when the Sheriffs Ofce takes over after the City Council approved transfer agreements Tuesday evening. In November, the City Council

voted to contract for services provided by the San Mateo County Sheriffs Ofce. On Tuesday, the council approved two transfer agreements to make it happen an agreement with the Millbrae Police Ofcers Association and one with the county about property. The goal is for the county to ofcially take

over service at 12:01 a.m. Monday, March 5. Councilwoman Nadia Holober was the lone dissenting vote for the transfer of assets. She said she opposed the drop in service the new contract would bring to the city. Vice Mayor Gina Papan disagreed noting the city had previously

understaffed the department. Contracting with the county for police services will save Millbrae an estimate $1.693 million in the first year. Those savings will increase in future years over the ve-year contract. The citys current annual budget for the department is $4.258 mil-

lion. When the budget is changed to include vehicles, safety equipment, overhead costs and other costs, the annual budget is raised to $7.27 million. The sheriffs proposal of $4.56 million includes Millbraes own police chief and offers jobs for most employees currently in the depart-

Yesterday, more than 200 residents and supporters of Burlingame Long Term Care came before San Mateo County supervisors (including Carole Groom and Don Horsley, top center) to beg them to not close the facility. Connie Lauer, a six-year resident, (bottom center, sitting next to Sandra Herrick) began crying while explaining how other options like a board and care home are too expensive.Left,a resident,and right,John C.Beiers,county counsel,listen to the supervisors unanimous decision to not renew the lease.

Some exhibitors at a weekend antiques show in San Mateo reported to police they were robbed of jewelry and other items that in one case amounted to more than $50,000. San Mateo police took at least three theft reports from exhibitors at the Hillsborough Antique Show & Sale, one who claimed a handbag with $1,200 in cash was stolen. The handbag was later found in a rest room at the San Mateo County Event Center with the money missing, according to police. One exhibitor, based in Nevada, told the Daily Journal yesterday he was robbed of $55,000 in gold

San Mateo County supervisors unanimously agreed not to renew its lease with Burlingame Long Term Care, a decision capping hours of emotional testimony by residents who begged them not to break up their home and others who challenged the image of the facility as physically unsafe and financially draining.

Please let us stay together because we are a family. I dont know what I would do if I lose my home and my family, said center resident Eileen Nolan who has been disabled for 50 years and said she cannot care for herself. The boards decision means Burlingame Long Term Care on Trousdale Drive will close in July 2013, its 230 residents relocated and approximately 200 workers laid off. The supervisors called the deci-

sion tough but said they need to take a long-range approach to long-term care and nancial solvency. The needs in our community outstrip our ability to pay for them, said Supervisor Dave Pine. Regardless, the boards nal vote was met with loud booing and tears. Several of the residents are MediCal recipients and they worried that the closure means few local options and possibly being forced to relocate far from known surroundings

and loved ones. Prior to yesterdays decision at the board meeting lled with more than 200 people, Connie Lauer, a six-year resident, began crying while explaining how other options like a board and care home are too expensive. I just dont want to move, she said. County ofcials said they wouldnt move them if they could help it

City weighs loss of redevelopment funds


San Bruno starts thinking about cuts, ways to raise revenue
By Heather Murtagh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Police reports
Gotta get that paper
A window of a vehicle was smashed and paper towels and toilet paper were taken on Comet Drive in Foster City before 11:58 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 9.

The states decision to shut down redevelopment agencies could create more than an $800,000 decit for the city of San Bruno this year forcing ofcials to think about cuts or ways to raise income to fund projects like street and sidewalk improvements. The San Bruno City Council met in a special study session Tuesday to discuss the impact of the states decision to end redevelopment agencies to help bridge its own budget decit. Looking at the 2012-13 scal year, the rst full year the city will be without a redevelopment agency, San Bruno should see an estimated increase in revenue of about $550,000 but faces a loss of $1.788 million. Although Finance Director Kim Juran showed optimistic numbers for the citys current and upcoming general fund budget, the impacts of stopping redevelopment agencies could negatively impact the citys bottom line. While no direction was given, the city will ultimately need to cut back or raise more money. In San Bruno, redevelopment money has helped annually with projects like sidewalk, pedestrian and street improvements. These projects arent fully funded by RDA funds. For example, $800,000 annually is put toward

street rehabilitation. Of that, $200,000 was from RDA. So the projects might not go away, but fewer improvements may be seen. San Brunos Redevelopment Agency also paid $330,000 toward the Caltrain grade separation. Those funds include construction management through December. If the project runs longer, however, Juran noted another funding source may be needed. Other projects may not happen. Late last year, the city passed a $320,000 street median and Grand Boulevard improvement projects. Since it was passed after June, Juran warned the law states it may not be honored. Lastly, San Bruno has long worked on a transit corridor plan which was to be funded with the help of RDA money. The good news is the city is forecasting a surplus for the current year, which could help soften the impact of the loss of redevelopment funds. San Bruno could also cut back or look at raising revenue through an assessment district, development impact fees and ballot measures. Raising revenue for the coming year would require quick action by the council. Cuts arent simple to make. City Manager Connie Jackson explained the city isnt set up with dedicated projects fully funded by RDA funds, nor are employees dedicated only to those projects. Jackson said the city will struggle with fully funding continuing efforts.

With the California Supreme Court decision in December, all RDAs must be dissolved. Many cities voted to become a successor agency for the former RDA allowing it to be sure previous contractual obligations are met. Which of these projects will be paid off using tax increments provided by redevelopment will be decided through a state committee which will start meeting in May. Until then, cities like San Bruno will not have clear direction. Many cities in San Mateo County South San Francisco, Millbrae, San Mateo, Belmont, Foster City, San Carlos and Redwood City had redevelopment agencies. Another twist in San Brunos budget is the rebuilding of the Glenview/Crestmoor neighborhood from the Sept. 9, 2010 natural gas explosion and re. A trust fund has been set up to cover costs but not all costs are clearly quantiable. For example, the hours of work by outside specialists hired to help are straightforward. At the same time, much of the city staff also spends time dedicated to the effort. Those billable hours are not as clear, said Jackson. Councilman Michael Salazar hoped to work on building some compensation for staff time into the budget that can be billed to the trust in 2012-13. Councilman Rico Media added he would like to see the city wrap up billing the trust for work in 2011 as well. budget outlook. A new report released on Monday by the Ofce of the Controller shows the city will end the current budget cycle with $80 million more than previously anticipated. The additional revenue is from property, payroll, sales, hotel and parking taxes. City Controller Ben Roseneld said the numbers show San Franciscos economy is continuing to recover after imploding in 2008.

a statement. The agencys report says a higher rating is contingent on sufciently credible solutions to the states $9.2 billion decit. That would include automatic Jerry Brown spending cuts that are not subject to changes after the November election, if voters reject Gov. Jerry Browns tax hikes. Brown has proposed a mix of cuts and temporary tax hikes but Democrats who control the Legislature are opposed to more cuts. If the state can reach a balanced budget by the summer, Californias low credit rating might be turning a corner. The last time the rating agency gave California a positive outlook was June 2007, when it had an A-plus rating. It now has a rating of A-minus. Californias outlook improved from negative to stable last July after the last budget was passed. Revenues, however, remain a concern. Last week, the state controllers ofce released its latest monthly report showing tax collections came in $528 million below the January projections in the governors proposed budget. Our rating is still near the bottom when compared to other states, Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff, R-Diamond Bar, said in a statement. While this is movement in the right direction, Californians should delay celebration until were closer to the top than the bottom.

S&P improves state bond outlook

Each year at the end of February, the San Mateo-Foster City School District reviews its Strategic Plan and makes revisions for the coming school year. The strategic planning process focuses its work to ensure that the needs of students are met. Saturday, Feb. 25 begins a new planning process. The district will spend Saturday morning from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Abbott Middle Schools gymnasium, 600 36th Ave. in San Mateo, focused on strategic visioning, thinking together about the future. The theme of the morning will be imagine. Parents and members of the community are invited to join in this strategic visioning event.

Although California still faces a $9.2 billion decit, the credit rating agency said the state has corrected a signicant portion of its budget imbalance. We are revising the outlook because, barring any other credit deterioration, (we) think the state is poised for credit improvement and potentially a higher rating pending its ability to better align its cash performance and budget assumptions, S&P analyst Gabriel Petek said in

CITY GOVERNMENT
The San Carlos City Council agreed to move forward with a ban on polystyrene and work with the county on a plastic bag ban rather than move forward with its own city-specific ordinance. The council also wants information on the possibility of charging for paper bags and whether that is taxable. The council also agreed to prepare a commendation for Betsy Schneider, the citys representative to the Mosquito Control and Vector Abatement District, for her role in bringing more than $400,000 in alleged embezzlement to light. The mayor will prepare a letter to the civil grand jury asking for a full investigation into the district and its finances and will also send a letter to the board, all mayors in the county and the Board of Supervisors. The Redwood City Council voted 5 - 1, with Vice Mayor Jeff Gee dissenting, to reject the appeal of a proposed condominium project at the site of former Mels Bowl. Two groups appealed the approval, one citing the need for greater environmental review and the other asking for the inclusion of affordable housing units. The plan for 2580 El Camino Real calls for knocking down Mels Bowl, official known as AMF Redwood Lanes and empty since May, and replacing it with a threeand four-story building wrapping around three sides of a four- to five-story concrete parking garage. The facility will be a mix of a single studios, 99 one-bedroom, onebath units and 41 two-bedroom, two-bath units using 12 different floor plans ranging from 710 to 1,340 square feet.

San Francisco sues feds over pipeline safety


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO The city has sued the federal agency in charge of enforcing gas pipeline safety, saying it abjectly failed to help prevent a deadly explosion in a nearby suburb. City Attorney Dennis Herrera said Tuesday the city led the suit because the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials

Safety Administration has ignored San Franciscos concerns since the September 2010 blast in San Bruno, which killed eight people and destroyed 38 homes. The lawsuit claims the agency has failed to implement recommendations by federal investigators. A report into the explosion faulted lax enforcement of

federal safety rules and the actions of pipeline owner Pacic Gas & Electric Co. PG&E operates three gas transmission lines that run below densely populated San Francisco. Representatives from the pipeline administration and PG&E declined comment on the suit but said they were committed to safety. have also been pressured upwards by tensions with Iran, which have added uncertainty to the future crude supply. Some reneries in the United States and Europe have recently cut gasoline production, which has also pressured prices higher. This cutting back was done in reaction to concerns that consumer demand for gasoline has waning, according to AAA. The least expensive average price in Northern California can be found in Salinas where regular is $3.73 per gallon, according to AAA.

Gas prices on the rise


Fuel prices have jumped in every single area across Northern California including San Mateo which is now averaging $3.92 a gallon, up 18 cents for the month, according to the latest report from AAA Insurance, which tracks gas prices as a service to consumers. All of the Northern California metro areas tracked by the organization had double-digit increases over the past month, according to AAA. Californias average for a gallon of regular, unleaded gasoline is $3.85, up 15 cents since last months AAA report Jan. 10. For perspective, thats 40 cents higher than Californias average price on this date last year. Among all 50 states, California has the third highest state average price for regular, unleaded gaso-

In the San Francisco Bay Area, motorists can expect to pay an average price of $3.90, which is a 16cent increase. The national average price of $3.51 is up by 14 cents, which is 38 cents more than the national price on this date last year, when it was $3.13, according to AAA. Crude prices, and therefore gas prices, were pressured higher as Greek lawmakers approved austerity measures necessary for the country to receive the second round of bailouts needed to avoid defaulting on its debt obligations. Approval of the measures was considered positive economic news. Prices

BOISE, Idaho The latest Republican to surge in polls, Rick Santorum is trying to turn his newfound strength into something lasting. Curious Republicans now pack his rallies. Supporters have funneled nearly $4 million to his formerly empty campaign account over the past seven days. And his staff is plotting an aggressive strategy to challenge Mitt Romney in Romneys native Michigan and beyond. But things dont look so strong just beneath the surface. Santorum is underfunded and outmanned. Hes still lacking in organization, a month and a half into the primary season. And, after he won three contests in a single day last week, his opponents on the right and the left have begun their own efforts to tear him down. An upbeat Santorum declared Were building in a brief interview in Tacoma, Wash., on Tuesday before heading to Idaho for campaign events. Weve got a great volunteer base. In some states were going to have staff. Other states we arent. Were going to use volunteers. His challenges were on display this week in Tacoma, where hundreds of supporters waited on cold, wet cement stairs in the dark to see the Republican presi-

I dont know a lot about him, except I know hes more conservative than some of the other candidates like Mitt Romney, said Tanya Franklin, a 54year-old airline reservationist, who says shell probably vote for Santorum in her states March 3 caucuses. The former Pennsylvania senator has surged to a virtual tie with Romney in nationwide polling following his surprising sweep in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri last week. But, as Franklin suggests, his popularity may have less to do with who he is than who he isnt. Santorum is not Romney. And with Newt Gingrichs recent decline, thats enough for some conservatives at least for now.

Banner fundraising year for wealthy colleges


By Justin Pope
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

For the 99 percent of colleges, it was a pretty good fundraising year. For the 1 percent of super-wealthy elite, it was a much better one that catapulted them even farther ahead of the pack. The latest annual college fundraising gures out Wednesday show donations to colleges and universities rose 8.2 percent in fiscal 2011,

crossing back over the $30 billion mark for just the second time ever, and improving many schools nancial footing after several lean years due to the economic downturn. But the very richest universities accounted for nearly half the growth: Of the $30.3 billion collected by colleges and universities nationwide, $8.2 billion or 27 percent was raised by just the top 20 institutions. At those universities, fundraising was 15.3 percent higher than the year before, widening an already yawning wealth gap at the top of higher education.

Stanford University, which recently broke an all-time record by completing a 5-year, $6.2 billion fundraising campaign, led with $709.4 million collected in fiscal 2011, followed by Harvard ($639.2 million) and Yale ($580.3 million). Rounding out the list were private universities such as Columbia and Johns Hopkins, as well as elite public universities such as UCLA and the Universities of Texas, Wisconsin and North Carolina. Most campuses on the list have major medical schools and afliated research centers, though No. 4 MIT ($534 million) is an exception.

Deputy who arrested Gibson settles bias case
LOS ANGELES The deputy who arrested Mel Gibson for drunken driving and later claimed he suffered religious discrimination at work settled his lawsuit Tuesday against the Sheriffs Department. Attorneys for James Mee said a $50,000 settlement was reached and must be approved by a county claims board. A trial scheduled to begin this week was canceled. Mee, who is Jewish, claimed his superiors discriminated against him after arresting Gibson in 2006. Gibson had appeared in a public service announcement while building close relations with the department. Deputy Mee did not le his lawsuit for money, but he led his lawsuit for the principle of what happened to him and he strongly believed in his case, his attorney Etan Lorant said. Sheriff Lee Bacas spokesman Steve Whitmore said the department acknowledged no wrongdoing in the settlement. The sheriff has no issues with the settlement, Whitmore said. It was purely a business decision.

GOP critics hit Obamas $3.8T budget

Man jailed for failure to have dog license


GOLDEN A suburban Denver couple is ghting nes after the husband was jailed for failure to get a license for his daughters service dog. Authorities say another 50 people in Jefferson County could face the same fate. Matthew Townsend says he spent seven hours in jail after the dog got out and he was issued a $50 ticket. Townsend ignored the ticket and was arrested. His wife was ned $100. Last year, the county issued nearly 500 citations for violations. KCNC-TV reports the county needs the money to pay for a new $10 million Foothills Animal Shelter.

WASHINGTON Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told Congress Tuesday that the presidents new $3.8 trillion spending plan would impose new taxes on only 2 percent of the nations wealthiest families and the alternative would be to seek more painful cuts in other government programs such as defense, Social Security and Medicare. Geithner defended the new budget plan in the face of intense attacks from GOP members of the Senate Finance Committee. Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah told Geithner that the administrations spending plan would give the country a permanently larger, European-inspired government. But Geithner said deeper spending cuts now would damage economic growth and push more Americans into poverty at a time when the economy is still struggling to recover from a deep recession. Geithner told the committee that the administration hopes to send Congress next week a framework for making changes in the countrys corporate tax structure.

He said the administration would not offer detailed legislative language but rather broad principles for corporate tax reform. He said the administration would propose eliminating a number of current business tax breaks in an effort to lower the corporate tax rate. The nominal U.S. corporate tax rate is 35 percent, the highest in the world after Japan, but few companies pay that much after taking various deductions. Obama has proposed lowering that tax rate but has not said by how much it should be lowered. The president has also proposed ending tax breaks for U.S. companies moving jobs or prots to foreign countries while suggesting tax breaks for businesses that move jobs back to the United States. Geithner did not offer any hints about what recommendations the administration will make on corporate rates in its submission to Congress. Congress may put off the tough decisions on the budget until after the November elections, but the spending document will certainly be used as a campaign document for Obama and a key target for Republicans running against Democrats.

White House threatens veto of GOPs highway bill


By Joan Lowy
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON After years of procrastination, the White House and Congress have suddenly boosted a long-term plan to improve the nations roads, bridges and transit systems to the top of the political agenda. This week, the House and Senate are set to take up vastly different bills providing a blueprint for shoring up the nations aging transportation system. Lawmakers are driven in part by a desire to show voters a major

accomplishment in an election year when regard for Congress is at rock bottom. They are pitching the bills as jobs generators, although it may be more accurate to say they preserve jobs that might otherwise be lost if Congress doesnt nd a way to keep highway and transit programs solvent. President Barack Obama chimed in Monday with his own plan to spend nearly half a trillion dollars over six years on transportation infrastructure. And on Tuesday the White House threatened to veto the House bill, saying the Republican

measure doesnt spend enough to strengthen the nations transportation system and weakens environmental and labor standards. But the presidents plan is much grander than anything Congress is likely to go along with that the administration has swung its weight behind the Senate bill, a bipartisan plan that more modestly proposes to spend $109 billion over less than two years. House Republicans have proposed spending about $260 billion over nearly ve years, but the bill is drawing re from so many quarters that

the ability of Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, to muscle the measure through to passage is in doubt. To build support with tight-sted tea partiers for such a large spending bill, GOP leaders added sweeteners designed to appeal to conservatives, such as expanded offshore oil and gas drilling, approval of the controversial Keystone pipeline and a requirement that federal employees pay more toward their pensions. The bills treatment of mass transit programs has riled urban lawmakers, including New York and Chicago metro-area Republicans who may wind up voting against the bill.

OPINION
posed at a time when transit ridership around the country is expanding, reecting and helping to fuel, an economy desperately trying to rebound. Locally, the Caltrain commuter rail system is reporting its 17th consecutive month of ridership growth as more daily commuters take advantage of a reliable service that helps them avoid highway gridlock. Ridership on the SamTrans bus system has just begun to rebound after months of struggling, another indicator that people who depend on transit are nally starting to go back to work. If Congress passes legislation that eliminates federal investment in public transportation, local transit services will lose one of its few dependable sources of funding. The result will mean delays in critical maintenance programs, declines in dependable service and, eventually, service cuts as transit agencies scramble to nd funding to keep our services running. This legislation threatens the present and the future. Reduced investment in public transportation infrastructure will slow the nations economic growth by stalling long-planned transit projects that create 36,000 jobs for every $1 billion invested. Thirty years ago, President Reagan talked about how important it is to invest in a network of highways and mass transit that has enabled our commerce to thrive, our country to grow and our people to roam freely and easi-

House bill to cut transit funds must be stopped


By Jerry Deal

t is common for House Republicans to invoke Ronald Reagans legacy and compare their own political ideals with the great communicators. Now, many of those same Republicans are threatening to dismantle one of Reagans greatest and most enduring accomplishments. The result could be untold and permanent damage to the nations transit systems at a time when the public, hungry to kick its addiction to foreign oil, expects and demands more options to the automobile. In 1983, President Reagan enthusiastically signed legislation guaranteeing that a portion of federal gas tax revenues would be spent on maintaining and expanding the countrys mass transit systems. Now, legislation making its way through the House of Representatives contains provisions that would eliminate that guarantee, leaving the nations bus, shuttle and rail systems without any predictable source of funding. Worse, it threatens to strand millions of working Americans who get to their jobs every day depending on affordable, safe, efcient public transportation. For these reasons, we ask that you join an effort to speak out against the House Ways and Means Committee provisions of the American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act of 2012 (H.R. 7), which would eliminate the portion of the gas tax that goes directly to transit agencies for maintaining their systems and building better ones. The bill amendment is being pro-

Guest perspective
ly to every corner of our land. After 30 years of investment, San Mateo County is a good example of that ongoing vision. We are fortunate to have access to a thriving network of bus, rail and shuttle systems that serve one of the worlds leading regional economies, and we have forward-thinking plans for how to expand those systems and add new services to help secure our economic future. Ronald Reagan was a conservative, but he imbued this nation with a vision of a future America that would be alive and energetic, modern and forwardlooking. This legislation would undermine that vision, and it would strike hardest at working people and at all of us who have a similar vision for an America that nds transit as central to a healthy nation. Please join me and my colleagues on transit boards throughout the nation in opposing the provisions of H.R. 7. Please write to your congressional representatives and express support for their efforts to ght these cuts and write to the House leadership, telling them that you support transit and want to see its funding continue.

A critical balance for downtown San Mateo


By Maxine Terner

Letters to the editor


Low food stamp use is a good thing
Editor, I take issue with the front page article of the Feb. 10 Daily Journal, County food stamp use low but increasing. In the article, San Mateo County is listed in 57th position in the utilization of food stamps. We are leaving $84.8 million unused. This perspective supports the theory that those who have must give to those who need. This leads to pain for both groups. Those who are forced to give are bitter due to the conscation of their property. Those who receive without earning injure their self image. The other side of this coin is that we are actually number two in the state for protecting the taxpayers. People are not participating even if they qualify, this is the upside to the story. In this county, people are relying on private efforts or friends and families or even themselves. If the federal government does not spend this money, it reduces the taxation of the citizens. When people are in need they will nd a way to meet the need. Encouraging people to try and see if they qualify for a government program only encourages abuse of the program. If more counties operated this way, we would shrink this program. We should be trumpeting the low use of food stamps in San Mateo County. I frequently ride my bicycle on California Avenue and feel comfortable about it. I can easily swerve around cars backing out of parking stalls, while cars behind me can avoid me by just changing lanes. Taking one lane in each direction away to add a bike lane would change the whole scenario. Swerving around cars backing out would force me into the only car lane. Not good! And believe me, there are plenty of drivers who just back out of parking spaces without noticing bicyclists. Did anyone ever investigate what contractor motivated the Palo Alto City Council to vote for such a folly? It makes one wonder!

h oh! Downtown San Mateo is once again the focus of attention by property owners and politicians who want to tinker with downtown policies to allow ground-oor retail space to be replaced by ofce space. It doesnt take much foresight to see how easily downtown could turn into a major ofce zone, losing the retail and restaurant businesses that will no longer be able to afford the higher rents that ofce uses can absorb. Special interest groups in the downtown are pushing to change the city plan that promotes the type of downtown that residents have repeatedly said they value a real downtown with historic buildings, a mixture of housing and ofce space, entertainment, varied shops and restaurants that create a lively street life. While there may be a need for some renements to this plan, it is crucial that the entire community be involved so changes are not made piecemeal or only to the benet of individual property owners. Without doubt, a bright spot in the local economy has been the proliferation of tech startups that are attracted to downtown San Mateo for ofce space. These new rms bring a welcome infusion of energy and life to downtown. These businesses recognize San Mateos strategic location between San Francisco and Silicon Valley, the value of having easy access to transit as well as walking access to shops, services and restaurants. Residents value downtown for the same reasons. Convenient parking, neighborhood-serving businesses and uncongested trafc are also important to residents. A key issue is whether the expansion of downtown ofces could lead to the loss of the very elements that attract companies and residents to our diversied, compact downtown to begin with. What tools does the city have to maintain that critical balance or does downtown San Mateo become just a modied business park? People choose to live in San Mateo for many reasons: its demographic diversity, its varied housing options, its superb schools and parks, its vibrant and historic downtown, its strong and identiable neighborhoods and its convenient location. San Mateo is the desirable city we know today because generations of citizens have stood up to protect our community. They knew not to change its core values and vision with every swing of the economic pendulum. The Downtown Specic Plan is the important policy document that establishes the citys commitment to a diverse downtown environment. Its policies have a long-term perspective that reects community values. Sometimes these policies can be in conict with the economic-cycle perspectives of individual property owners and businesses. The Burlingame Safeway site is one example of this. Burlingame was clear about the kind of development they wanted and had to wait many years before a plan was proposed that met its requirements. Today, the site is an attractive shopping area that accommodates not only Safeway and Walgreens, the previous tenants, but additional shops and parking as well. As San Mateo begins its study to review and update the Downtown Plan, it is important to ensure that the right variables are evaluated, including the relationship of how rent affects retail activity. Lets nd out why nearby downtown retail areas are successful. No doubt we will hear much about how downtown retail is obsolete, but that is not fact, only opinion about what is probably just one more swing of the economic pendulum. Many shoppers are tiring of the sameness available from national chain stores and crave the uniqueness that small, individualized shops can provide. Already there is a growing movement to support shop local that mirrors the eat local movement that led to fundamental changes in the food industry. San Mateo has all the ingredients for a thriving downtown and it will grow and change. The upcoming study gives the community an opportunity to redene itself and articulate its values for the future. It will only be successful if all segments of the community participate and speak up about what kind of city they want to live and work in. Lets all pay attention so that any changes do not have the unintended consequences of destroying the character of the city we love. Get involved and make sure the changes that will come to San Mateo are ones we want to live with.

Wall Street
ket found hope in reports quoting Greek government officials as saying party leaders would promise by Wednesday to implement deep spending cuts and other reforms. Declining stocks still outnumbered advancing stocks by about 2-to-1. Volume was light at about 3.8 billion shares on the New York Stock Exchange. The stock market has been rising slowly but steadily most of this year, despite the unresolved debt crisis in Europe and a stalemate over U.S. tax policy and benets for the long-term unemployed. For most of Tuesday, investors appeared to be waiting for more clarity on all those issues before sinking more money into stocks, said Colleen Supran, a principal at the investment adviser Bingham, Osborn & Scarborough. Everyone wants to know the rules of the game before making these decisions, Supran said. The late-day rally was a sign that investors expect the coming round of Greek debt talks to resolve some of those outstanding questions. The talks have brought incremental and sometimes contradictory developments that have confused some investors.

U.S. stocks were weighed down as European finance chiefs canceled a meeting planned for Wednesday to discuss a second international bailout for the country. The meeting was called off after Athens failed to deliver on several demands made by its partners in the euro currency union. Greece needs a (euro) 130 billion bailout by March 20 to avoid a default that could rattle the world nancial system. Stocks in the U.S. were also hurt by a discouraging report on retail sales.

Negotiators reach tentative payroll tax cut pact


By Andrew Taylor
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON House-Senate talks on renewing a payroll tax cut that delivers about $20 a week to the average worker yielded a tentative agreement Tuesday, with lawmakers planning to unveil the pact Wednesday and sending the measure to President Barack Obama as early as this week. Under the outlines of the emerging agreement, a 2 percentage-point cut in the Social Security payroll tax would be extended through the end of the year,

with the nearly $100 billion cost added to the decit. Jobless benets for the long-term unemployed would be renewed as well, with the $30 billion cost paid for in part through auctioning broadcast spectrum to wireless companies and requiring federal workers to contribute more toward their pensions. GOP lawmakers leaving a party meeting said they were told a tentative pact had been reached but said some details could change before the compromise was nalized, probably on Wednesday. They described the session as largely positive, and several predicted the House

would approve the deal. The payroll tax cut and renewing jobless benets were key planks in Obamas jobs program, which was announced in September. The payroll tax cut benets 160 million Americans and delivers a tax cut of about $20 a week for a typical worker making $50,000 a year. People making a $100,000 salary would get a $2,000 tax cut. The deal would not only be a win for Obama but would take the payroll tax ght which put Republicans on the defensive off the table for the fall election campaign.

Business briefs
Zynga posts 4Q net loss on IPO-related stock costs
NEW YORK Online game maker Zynga Inc. reported a net loss in the last three months of 2011, weighed by hefty stock-compensation expenses and other costs in its rst quarter as a public company. Its adjusted earnings and revenue skidded past Wall Streets expectations, but that wasnt enough to lift the stock of the company behind the most popular games played on Facebook. Zyngas stock fell 6 percent in afterhours trading following its report. San Francisco-based Zynga said Tuesday that it lost $435 million, or $1.22 per share, in the fourth quarter. Thats down from earnings of $16.1 million, or 5 cents per share, a year earlier when it was still privately held. Adjusted earnings were 5 cents per share in the latest quarter, surpassing Wall Streets expectations by 2 cents. This gure excludes one-time items, including $510 million in stock-compensation expenses triggered by Zyngas initial public offering of stock in mid-December.

New York hedge fund manager Daniel Loeb outlined his plans for the mutiny attempt in a Tuesday regulatory ling that revealed he bought an additional 12.9 million Yahoo shares last month. He now controls a 5.6 percent stake in Yahoo Inc. Loeb hopes to use those holdings as leverage to gain a seat on Yahoos board. He also nominated three other candidates to replace some of Yahoos current board members. Loebs allies are former NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Zucker, media consultant Michael Wolf and turnaround specialist Harry Wilson. The challenge comes a week after Yahoo announced Chairman Roy Bostock and three other directors are stepping down.

Lake champ Sequoia beats Carlmont


By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Considering the Peninsula Athletic League is split into three separate divisions for basketball, there is always one, overriding question: can the rst-place team in a lower division beat the sixth-place nisher in the league directly above? The Sequoia girls basketball team put this question to the test when the Cherokees faced

rival Carlmont in the rst round of the PAL tournament. Sequoia captured the Lake Division title, while the Scots nished last in the Ocean Division. For one night at least, we have an answer. Using tenacious defense and maniacal rebounding, the Cherokees advanced to the second round with a 37-29 win. Some of the teams in [the Lake Division] are pretty good, said Sequoia coach Steve

Picchi. I think the [division] has done well for itself this year. Sequoia will travel to Burlingame for a 7 p.m. tipoff tonight. The Cherokees needed to be on top of their game defensively considering they werent doing a lot offensively. But being an offensive juggernaut is not something Sequoia tries to achieve. Instead, the Cherokees focus on things they can do well: defend, get in passing

lanes and rebound, as well as play with a lot of energy. We dont try to do 23 things mediocre, Picchi said. But do one or two things very well. Tuesday, one of the things Sequoia did very well was rebound the ball, on both ends of the oor. In the second quarter, eight of the Cherokees 13 points came off of offensive

Mitty ousts Serra soccer

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The Carlmont girls soccer team went into Tuesdays match against host Aragon trailing the Dons in the standings by two points. The Scots left San Mateo with a one-point advantage in the race for the Peninsula Athletic Leagues Bay Division title after beating Aragon 3-2. [Aragon is] a very dangerous team, said Carlmont coach Tina Doss. If we give them an inch, theyll take it. Carlmont (9-1-3, 30 points) scored twice in the rst half and added what turned out to be the game winner in the nal minutes of the game. Soha Saids second goal of the game was important because Nicole Roderick scored her second tally of the game in the nal moments. Carlmont appeared to want it more in the rst half as the Scots controlled the opening 10 minutes of the game. They were the rst to most 50-50 balls and to a lot of the balls in the air. Aragon (9-2-2, 29 points) got away from its ball-possession style of play and used a more direct attack, which is tough against a solid Carlmont defense. I know my defense is very strong, Doss said. Carlmont opened the scoring midway through the rst half. After a Scots corner kick was initially cleared by the Aragon defense, Carlmont kept the ball in the Dons half of the eld. It found its way to Amelia Jacobs, who sent a cross into the middle of the penalty box, where both Jacqueline Reliford and Said were left unmarked. After a bounce, Said side-footed a shot on goal. It wasnt the strongest effort, but it was well placed, bouncing into the right corner of the net for a 1-0 Carlmont lead. The Scots doubled their advantage with three minutes left in the rst half. Following a Carlmont corner, the Dons defense could not clear the ball away far enough. Lauren Konrad settled the ball about 20 yards from goal and sent a seeing-eye shot through trafc and past the Aragon goalkeeper to give the

Of all the sports clichs, the one that rears its ugly head the most during a league postseason tournament revolves around playing a team three times in a season and how difcult it is to win on all occasions. On Tuesday afternoon, the old adage was at it again. Serra fell to Archbishop Mitty 3-0 in the semifinals of the West Catholic Athletic League boys soccer tournament. The loss was the rst for the Padres against the Monarchs this season, having won 1-0 and 2-1 earlier in the year. Its extremely tough, said Serra head coach Jeff Panos when asked about the clich. Especially this (Mitty) squad. This squad nished only one point behind us in the (WCAL) standings. They only lost four games all year and two of them were to us and they were all tight. Its extremely tough. Theyre going to be every bit the favorite to go up St. Francis Thursday night. Completing a season three-peat is difcult for a variety of reasons. Tuesday, the Serra defense had a rare off game. The three goals allowed ties a season high for the Padres. The only other time came in a 6-3 win over Riordan. The 3-spot also marks only the third time Serra has given up more than two goals in a game. I think some of our marking was off, Panos said. Our defense has been solid all year. We dont leak that often like this. I mean, that rst goal they scored was fantastic. Mitty really played a good game today so credit to their offense. We had a couple of opportunities in the rst half and those are big momentum changers if you dont take advantage. Its just too bad for a seminal game that the game was over so early because were a much better team than that. The game-changing goal came with less than two minutes left in a rst half that was pretty even.

Rudolph is heart of Gryphonsscoring machine

Athlete of the Week


across them. And after eight weeks of soccer that saw the midelder carry her team to a 150-1 mark in West Bay Athletic League play, ignoring Rudolph for this title became ridiculous. Shes a very tenacious player, said Crystal Springs assistant coach Michael Flynn. Shes hungry for the goal. Essentially, shes our attacking midelder, shes our playmaker so its kind of ironic that shes scored the most

The title is the Daily Journal Athlete of the Week. But sometimes you come across athletes who are consistently good throughout an entire season; to the degree that he or she can garner the title any given week. Crystal Springs Uplands midelder Ellen Rudolph is such an athlete. Box scores roll in on a weekly basis with her named littered

goals on the team. Shes got great vision, she spreads the ball out and when the opportunity arises to stretch the other team, she takes advantage of it. Shes got great 1v1 ball skills and is quick to pull the trigger. Rudolph was at it again this week. Last Thursday, the midelder scored a hat trick in an 11-0 win. She also notched a pair of assists. And in the league nale, Rudolph found the back of the net another two times, running her season total to 18 goals, good for rst on the Gryphons.

For her efforts, Rudolph is the Daily Journal Athlete of the Week. Shes kind of been our go-to player this year, Flynn said. Weve given her the reins, shes a senior on the team. Shes been here for four years, played as a central attacking midelder the whole time. Shes really taken the responsibility of being the head one in the middle. She steps up big every game. It seems that the entire Gryphon team stepped up this season. Crystal Springs

Raiders hire six more assistants


ALAMEDA The Oakland Raiders are bringing back quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo for a second stint. The Raiders also announced Tuesday the hiring of five other assistants: receivers coach Ted Gilmore, tight ends coach Mark Hutson, defensive line coach Terrell Williams and defensive backs coaches Clayton Lopez and Johnnie Lynn. DeFilippo was quarterbacks coach in Oakland in 2007-08 before leaving for a job with the New York Jets. He spent the past two seasons at San Jose State before new Raiders coach Dennis Allen brought him back. Lopez also is back for a second stint with the Raiders, having been here in 2004-05. He was in St. Louis the past three seasons. Lynn has 17 years of NFL experience, most recently in Philadelphia. Williams, Hutson and Gilmore are career college coaches. NFL retirees that was a part of the labor talks during the lockout last year has not given up their push for better post-career care. The money they helped gain for their fellow former players was less than what they believe they were promised, and theyre eager to argue their case in court. Im going to ght em to the end, said Hall of Fame guard Joe DeLamielleure, one of 47 ex-players who signed on as plaintiffs in the lawsuit led in federal court against the NFL Players Association. Theyve alleged the current players illegally overreached by determining the retiree share of the $10billion-a-year business without them. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson will hear oral arguments Wednesday in St. Paul, Minn., from both sides. The union has motioned to have the case dismissed. Spokesman Carl Francis said the NFLPA wont comment on the lawsuit. The unions response to the complaint was led under seal. Michael Hausfeld, the lead attorney for the retired player group led by former Minnesota Vikings defensive end Carl Eller, insisted his clients arent trying to make a money grab. Eller said theyve estimated between $300 and $500 million in additional benets they were promised in the early stages of CBA talks and didnt get. Their contention is they were pushed out of negotiations to streamline the mediation process despite a court order for their inclusion. Those talks last summer led to a new collective bargaining agreement for the owners and players and saved the 2011 season. The retirees dont begrudge the present players any income they merit, but at the same time they dont feel it was appropriate for the current players to essentially shortchange the retirees, Hausfeld said. The NFLs new Legacy Fund is an additional $620 million carved into the new CBA to go toward pension increases. Current payments to retirees or beneciaries were bumped up to at least $600 per month. Players over 55 already receiving pensions were given a benet credit, an extra $124 per season for those accrued prior to 1975 and an additional $108 per season for those played between 1975 and 1992. Overall, including the Legacy Fund, an extra $1 billion was set aside in the new CBA to improve benets, league spokesman Greg Aiello said.

TORONTO Linsane! Jeremy Lin made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with less than a second to play to cap his nishing urry of six straight points, and the New York Knicks rallied to beat the Toronto Raptors 90-87 Tuesday night, extending their winning streak to six games. The NBAs rst American-Taiwanese player, Lin had 27 points and a career-high 11 assists in his rst game since being named Eastern Conference player of the week. The season-high crowd of 20,092 roared as Lin drained a pull-up jumper from the top with half a second to play, giving the Knicks their rst lead since the opening quarter. Torontos Rasual Butler airballed his attempt at the buzzer as the Knicks swarmed their newest hero at center court. Amare Stoudemire returned from a four-game absence with 21 points and Tyson Chandler had 13 for New York. Jose Calderon scored 25 points, Linas Kleiza had 15 points and 11 rebounds, and DeMar DeRozan scored 14 for the Raptors. Up 75-66 to start the fourth, Toronto widened its lead with a three-point play by Barbosa before the Knicks stormed back with a 10-0 run, cutting it to 78-76 and forcing the Raptors to call timeout with 6:22 remaining. Kleiza stopped the run with a driving layup, Amir Johnson added a hook shot and, after Lin made one of two from the line, Barbosas layup made it 84-77 with 4:49 to go.

Retired NFL players still seeking better benets

NCAA champ falls in 1st round of SAP


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN JOSE Reigning NCAA champion Steve Johnson lost his rst-round match at the SAP Open on Tuesday to Steve Darcis of Belgium, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5), and is still seeking his rst tour win. Johnson, who also lost his three previous ATP Tour matches, battled hard against the more experienced Darcis but fell just short in both tiebreakers. Darcis, 27, is ranked 72nd in the world and has two career titles. Johnson, 22, won the NCAA title last year at Southern California and is looking to lead the Trojans to their fourth straight team title in his senior season. He has won 43 straight college matches. The rst full day of action featured a heavy dose of Americans with eight scheduled to play their rst matches of the tournament. Only one of the ve Americans who played in the afternoon session advanced to the second round as Denis Kudla beat countryman Jack Sock in a matchup of 19-year-old up-andcomers.

Sock beat Kudla in the U.S. Open junior nal in three sets in 2010 and twice on clay in Futures events the past two years, but fell 6-4, 6-7 (6), 6-3 in this match. Sock, who teamed with John McEnroe to win a doubles exhibition on Monday night, had a short stay in the singles draw. He had his serve broken in the opening game of the match for the only break in the rst set. Neither player lost serve in the second set before Sock rallied from 5-2 down in the tiebreaker to force a third set. Sock got up an early break in the third set before losing four straight games, committing two double faults in the crucial sixth game that included seven deuces. Sock lost that game with a double fault to fall behind 4-2 and failed to convert a break opportunity in the seventh game. In the rst match of the day, American Dennis Lajola lost his ATP Tour debut to fellow qualier Dimitar Kutrovsky of Bulgaria, 6-7 (7), 6-3, 7-6 (3). Kutrovsky next plays top-seeded Gael

Monfils in the second round on Thursday. Tim Smyczek, who made it to the quarternals here last year, was knocked out in the rst round by Gilles Muller of Luxembourg, 2-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3. In the night matches, American Robby Ginepri took on Xavier Malisse in his rst ATP Tour match of the year and seventh-seeded Donald Young was set to face fellow American Michael Russell in the late match.
Other results: Singles First Round Dimitar Kutrovsky, Bulgaria, def. Dennis Lajola, United States, 6-7 (7), 6-3, 7-6 (3). Gilles Muller, Luxembourg, def. Tim Smyczek, United States, 26, 7-6 (5), 6-3.

I think one of the biggest differences is the chemistry between Ellen and the other central midelder, Emma Marsano, Flynn said. They just really gured out how to play together if one goes forward to attack, the other one drops. They look to play combination plays between each other, which is essential. I think thats been the biggest key those two learning to play with each other has been the biggest key to her game this year. Marsano hasnt been the only beneficiary players like Julia Tong (16 goals), Natasha ThortonClark (15 goals) and Hannah Williams (9 goals) have reaped the rewards of Rudolphs skill. I think her best attribute is her ball distribution, Flynn said. Boy, she can pick someone out whos making a weak-side run and absolutely put the ball right on the spot. At 15-0-1, the Gryphons are looking at a divisional promotion next season. But the rst order of busibetween Connor Kurze and Kyle Cook. Cook nished off the play which he set up by passing in tight quarters to Kurze, who returned the pass on a small lift just inside the penalty area. Cook corralled the ball and nished in top form for the 1-0 lead. We lost our composure defensively two minutes before the half and I think we never recovered from that, so that was denitely the key for today, Panos said. They got that goal

SPORTS
ness is to make some noise in the playoffs. The level of play is going to be stepped up that much more, Flynn said. So, we denitely feel the pressure now. We won league, were moving up for sure, so we really want to have a good positive showing in the playoffs because a victory there cements for us the idea that we can play at the upper level. I think shes (Rudolph) going to be the player that we rely on the most just because having been there, being a senior shes just one of those players that doesnt want to lose and shes going to do whatever she can to make sure the team wins. And thats whether shes scoring goals or shes giving the assists shes going to do what she can.

outscored their opponents an astonishing 106-4 this year. No, that is not a misprint. 106 goals for. Only four against. I dont recall ever coaching a team, in the 16 years that Ive been coaching girls soccer, where weve scored 106 goals and given up four, Flynn said. It kind of makes you step back a little bit and be like Wow, 106 goals, really? Thats a lot of balls in the back of the net. At the heart of the offensive output has been players like Rudolph, who has shown a knack for taking complete control of games in the attacking neutral zone and scoring third. Its been a long time coming for the midelder, but in 2012, her game has gone to another level in the WBAL.

The ball was swung in by the left foot of David Escobar some 50 yards from goal. The ball bent right at the penalty box where Brian Babcock ew in and beat everyone with a header that made a bee-line to the back of the Serra net. Just like that, Serra was down 3-0 and for all intents and purposes, the game was over. The Padres got a couple of chances, most notably by Nick Schnabel late in the game, but Mitty was just too far ahead and was not going to allow a speck of Serra offense with a 3-0 cushion and the ability to park their defense in front of their goal. This is the toughest league in the Bay Area, Panos said. I think getting your butt kicked like this is going to be great to re-focus at practice. Its tough to practice this time of year because weve been playing so much. But I think well give them a day or two off and well re-focus. Panos expects his team will receive a rst-round bye when the pairings for the Central Coast Section playoffs are announced over the weekend.

Sports minister: Spain has doping problem


By Paul Logothetis
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

We have a problem with doping and thats why we have every intention of making sure Spains anti-doping law conforms with WADAs anti-doping code.
Jose Ignacio Wert,Spains sports minister

MADRID Spains sports minister acknowledged Tuesday the country has a doping problem that needs xing after its record in the ght against drugs came under scrutiny with Alberto Contadors ban from cycling. Jose Ignacio Wert, minister for Education, Culture and Sport, said Spain needed to improve its record to gain credibility in the eyes of international bodies. We have a problem with doping and thats why we have every intention of making sure Spains anti-doping law conforms with WADAs antidoping code, Wert said at the Forum de la Nueva Sociedad. Madrid submitted its 2020 Olympic bid application to the International Olympic Committee on

Tuesday in Lausanne, Switzerland. He added that tougher measures on doping are necessary to provide institutional aid to Madrids bid to host the 2020 Games, and a planned bid from Barcelona for the 2022 Winter Games. Contador was banned this month over a failed drug test at the 2010 Tour de France and stripped of the title of that race. The Spanish cyclist, who also won the Tour in 2007 and 09, was handed a retroactive twoyear ban that will sideline him from this years French classic, the Giro dItalia and the London Olympics. Contador has formed part of Spains golden generation that

includes athletes such as Rafael Nadal, Formula One driver Fernando Alonso, NBA star Pau Gasol and the national soccer team, which is the world and European champion. Nadal, Contador and others have been the butt of doping jokes by a satirical TV program in France, which has drawn much attention and ire from Spanish athletes and the general population. The best response is just to ignore them, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said on Tuesday as he honored Nadal, David Ferrer and Spains Davis Cup winning team. The Spanish cycling and tennis federations are suing Frances Canal

Plus TV for using their logos without approval in the skits. The satirical skits by Les Guignols came on the heels of former French Open champion Yannick Noahs opinion piece in newspaper Le Monde in November accusing Spanish sport of being rife with doping. Before the World Anti-Doping Agency and the International Cycling Union took Contadors case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the Spanish cycling federation had cleared Contador of doping after he blamed his positive result on contaminated meat. Im more motivated than ever to clean up Spains image, Nadal, a

six-time French Open champion, said in a TV interview on Monday. Spanish sport is characterized by sacrice, humility and spirit of overcoming adversity that all athletes have. You cant accuse someone of something you have no proof of, even if its humorous. France is obsessed with us. Spain has been at the forefront of international ire in the ght against doping since the Operation Puerto investigation was launched in May 2006. That probe implicated at least 50 cyclists and a number of doctors and cycling team officials were arrested. But Spanish authorities failed to ban any riders linked to the scandal, even though other countries used evidence gathered in the probe to suspend riders such as Ivan Basso, Alejandro Valverde and Jan Ullrich.

IndyCar drivers foresee safer sport in 2012


By Michael Marot
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

INDIANAPOLIS With IndyCar still recovering from Dan Wheldons death, series officials said Tuesday that double-file restarts will be scrapped at Indianapolis, Texas and Fontana and more changes to improve safety could be announced before next months season-opener at St. Petersburg. Oh yeah, there will be lots more to come, IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard said after the two-day state

of the series summit wrapped up in Indianapolis. Bernard didnt provide hints about what other announcements are pending. Its all part of a plan to make courses safer and revamp IndyCars image after Wheldon, a two-time Indy 500 winner, was killed in an accident at last years season-nale in Las Vegas. The wreck pushed safety issues to the forefront of racing and gave the drivers who risk their lives more latitude in framing complaints. Plenty of changes have already been made.

The series is introducing its rst redesigned car in nine years, a model that is being deemed IndyCars safest yet. Driver seats will be surrounded by three inches of foam in the cockpit, an inch of foam underneath the seat and a panel on the right side of the cockpit to help reduce the force when hitting outside walls. Wheldon, who did most of the early testing, spoke glowingly about the new safety features. Series ofcials are hoping the addition of rear-wheel pods will eliminate the wheel-to-wheel contact that can send cars airborne, too.

The 16-race schedule includes only ve oval races, down from eight of 17 last year, a move many racers have embraced since Wheldons crash, though Bernard said that decision was more about marketability than safety with the obvious exception of Las Vegas. New race director Beaux Bareld, who replaces Brian Barnhart in race control, made his decision on the restarts after talking directly with the drivers. I could look into their eyes and see very legitimate concerns, he said. When Bernard brought the double-

le restarts, a popular NASCAR feature, to the IndyCar circuit last season, those with stock car experience such as three-time defending champ Dario Franchitti and Danica Patrick balked immediately about the dangers it would pose. Bernard responded by instructing his drivers, which the series calls the worlds most versatile, to make it work. After a dubious start in St. Petersburg, they did. Bareld said he made his decision for two reasons: where the acceleration point is on the track and driver complaints.

Brazil coach Mano Menezes said Tuesday that Ronadinhos poor performances recently did not give him enough reason to omit the two-time FIFA player of the year. Ronaldinho is part of a project, Menezes said. I cant start making changes just because of his bad moment right now. Ronaldinho returned to the Brazilian squad late in 2010 after being left off the World Cup roster. The coach hinted he was expecting more from Kakas recent performances with Real Madrid.

nearly, single-handedly, doomed Sequoia. The senior guard buried four 3-pointers in the rst half, three in the rst quarter alone, as she scored 14 of Carlmonts 17 rst-half points. The Cherokees adjusted, however, starting in the second. Leist managed only seven points over the nal three quarters as the Cherokees did a better job of not allowing her to get her shot off. Sequoia, however, never got ustered. The Cherokees trailed 11-10 after one quarter but used a 6-0 run over the nal four-plus minutes of the second quarter to turn a 15-14 lead into a 21-14 lead with 1:54 to play in the half on As the Dons pushed everybody forward, there was a chance they would get caught with a counter attack. Mary Cochran nearly made the Dons pay, but Aragon goalkeeper Ashley Lenz swept away a breakaway attempt. In the waning minutes, the Scots got that insurance goal. From her own half of the eld, Gabi Reeder sent a perfect ball through the Aragon defense. Said ran on, went around a charging Lenz and put the ball away to put Carlmont up 3-1. Roderick got her second goal of the game, scoring in the nal seconds, but it wasnt enough. I was super impressed with the way we came back (in the second half). Getting that rst goal ve minutes into the second half made it exciting, said Aragon coach Will

their way to a 23-17 lead at halftime. After Carlmont scored the rst basket of the third quarter, Sequoia opened its largest lead, 27-19, on back-to-back baskets from Gianelly Prieto and Carroll. They maintained that eight-point lead heading into the nal eight minutes, 29-20. In the fourth quarter, Carlmont tried to get back into the game, cutting its decit to four points, 33-29 with 1:12 left, following Leists fourth 3 of the night. But the Cherokees did just enough from the free throw line to hold off the Scots down the stretch. We were just good enough, Picchi said. Colglazier. Even though we went down 3-1, we still fought. I wouldnt change anything. Each team has one game remaining in the regular season Thursday: Aragon takes on a winless Capuchino squad, while Carlmont faces a down, but always dangerous, Burlingame side. The Scots need a win to assure themselves the Bay Division championship. Colglazier said he didnt say anything to his team about the importance of Thursdays game, knowing the Dons need to win and then get some help from the Panthers. I didnt bring that up (with the team), but I know the math, Colglazier said. Said Doss: [My team] understands they have to win the last game.

Scots a 2-0 lead at halftime. Even with the two-goal lead, Doss knew she needed the team to keep pushing. Thats the score that everyone says is the most dangerous score, Doss said. She could not have been more right. Aragon pulled a goal back less than ve minutes into the second half. Carlmont failed to strongly clear away an Aragon corner kick and Jenny Winterbottom corralled the ball and found Roderick at the top of the Carlmont penalty box. Roderick received the pass and her shot

found the right corner of the net. From that point, it was game on as Aragon proceeded to dominate most of the second half. Carlmont, to its credit, did not simply pack in the defense and weather an Aragon onslaught. Doss gured the best defense was a good offense. I wanted to keep pushing, Doss said. I wanted my offense to attack, to continue to go at them. If we keep possession, its hard for them to score. Aragon ended up getting off eight shots in the second half, only three of which were on frame. It appeared the Dons might get the equalizer when Angela Knowles found the ball on her foot at the right side of the Carlmont goal and a gaping net in front of her. Her shot went wide.

Military leaders insist that Obama budget is right plan


By Donna Cassata
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Brushing aside congressional opposition, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and the nations top military leader insisted on Tuesday that President Barack Obamas trimmer, $614 billion defense budget will ensure the U.S. advantage worldwide with acceptable risks to the force and missions. Panetta and Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, defended the blueprint that would slash the size of the Army and Marine Corps, cut back on shipbuilding and delay the purchase of some fighter jets and weapons systems. Overall, the budget for 2013 would provide $525.4 billion in base spending and another $88.5 billion for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The total is nearly $32 billion less than this years budget, a reection of the drawdown in the two conicts, a decade since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the clamor to reduce the nations decit.

Swedish meatballs with a lighter side


wedish meatballs are such a retro potluck throwback, they are simply rolling in ironic hipness. Meaty, tender, juicy, sweet and sour, they are addictively easy to spear with a toothpick and pop one after another at a party. Thats why I love to serve them at my Oscar party. But I do it with a difference. There are countless recipes for Swedish meatballs, but most arent all that diet-friendly. Most varieties pack nearly 74 calories and more than 4 grams of fat per meatball. I knew I could do better. So I mixed and matched to come up with a lighter, healthier version of this popular appetizer. I cut the fat by using extra-lean ground turkey breast, 96 percent lean ground beef sirloin, low-sodium (and fat-free) chicken broth, olive oil cooking spray and evaporated fat-free milk (traditional recipes call for heavy cream). Then I stirred in just enough puffed brown rice, egg white and arrowroot (a cornstarch-like thickener) to hold everything together. The result is a delicious meatball with 37 calories and less than a gram of fat per meatball. Swedish meatballs traditionally are accompanied by lingonberry preserve, which is both hard to find and loaded with sugar. Instead, I used no-sugar spiced cranberry sauce, and I was good to go. Try them and youll be a star on Oscar night, too.

There are countless recipes for Swedish meatballs,but most arent all that diet-friendly.
Makes 20 meatballs 8 ounces extra-lean ground turkey breast 6 ounces 96 percent lean ground beef 2/3 cup fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion 1 egg white 2 cups puffed brown rice cereal Salt Red pepper flakes 1/4 cup evaporated fat-free milk 1 teaspoon arrowroot powder Olive oil cooking spray 1/4 cup no-sugar spiced cranberry sauce (such as Steels Gourmet) Heat the oven to 375 F. In a large bowl, combine the turkey breast and ground beef and mix gently. In a blender, combine 1/3 cup of the chicken broth, the onion and egg white. Blend until finely chopped, about 15 seconds. Add the puffed rice and blend to make a thick paste. Add the egg mixture to the meats, then season with salt and red pepper flakes as desired. Divide the mixture into 20 even mounds, using about 1 tablespoon each. Shape each into a ball using slightly wet hands to help prevent sticking. Coat a large nonstick saute pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high. Working in batches if necessary, once the pan is hot add the meatballs, leaving about 1/2-inch space between them. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until browned on the bottoms. Roll the meatballs onto the other side and brown evenly, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the meatballs from the pan. Add the remaining chicken broth to the pan and bring to a simmer. In a small bowl, mix the evaporated milk with the arrowroot, then stir into the chicken broth. Cook and stir for about 10 seconds, then return the meatballs to the pan, then place pan in the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the meatballs are cooked through. Transfer the meatballs to a serving platter. Insert short skewers into each meatball. Set the saute pan over medium heat and cook the sauce for 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Spoon the sauce over the meatballs and serve with the cranberry sauce.

TIPS:
If you cant find Steels Gourmet Cranberry Sauce (my preferred brand of no-sugar cranberry sauce) you can make your own. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine 1/2 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened whole cranberries, 1/4 cup water, 3 packets of stevia sweetener, 1 tablespoon agave nectar and a pinch of salt. Cover loosely with plastic wrap, then microwave on high until the cranberries pop and the mixture boils, about 2 minutes. Carefully remove the plastic wrap and mash the mixture with a fork or potato masher to make a chunky cranberry sauce.

LUBBOCK, Texas The smallest cattle herd since the 1950s likely will mean higher beef prices at the supermarket for the next two years. Experts said beef prices could climb as much as 10 percent a year in 2012 and 2013, and the increase could be even greater if demand from other countries increases. Those higher prices would follow steady increases that have seen the average retail cost of a pound of hamburger rise 23 percent, from $2.38 in December 2010 to $2.92 last December, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Last month the USDA reported the U.S. herd had declined to 90.8 million cattle, 2 percent less than the previous year and the lowest inventory since 1952, when there were 88.1 million. Were producing less beef so prices are going to go up, Texas AgriLife Extension Service livestock economist David Anderson said. Ranchers have sold more of their cattle in recent years to meet increased costs for feed, fuel and other expenses. The soaring feed costs come amid heightened demand for corn to produce ethanol and to meet a growing export market. The situation has been worst in Texas, the nations leading cattle producer, and other parts of the southern plains and southwest, where a record drought caused pastures to wither, leaving ranchers with few options but to sell their cattle or pay top-dollar for feed. There are 1.4 million fewer cattle a record 660,000 of those cows in Texas this year compared with the previous year, accounting for about 74 percent of the drop in

Florida only state with an official chef


By Tamara Lush
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Justin Timineri is part culinary ambassador,part farm expert and part cheerleader for Florida-grown food.

ORLANDO, Fla. The air in the parking lot of Orlandos Citrus Bowl smells like fresh cut oranges, shrimp and barbecue. A crowd has gathered before the game around a guy in a black chefs coat. A camera crew orbits as he sets some shrimp and star melon kebabs on the grill with a flourish. Florida seafood ya gotta love it! the guy says, grinning. The crowd cheers. The cameraman is happy. A man walks up and inquires about the hoopla. Someone in the crowd tells him the man in black is Justin Timineri, the state chef of Florida whos filming a spot for ABC. Never heard of him, said Paul Pedersen, of Orlando. Hes like the governors mansion kinda deal? I had no idea we had a state chef. Move over, Mario Batali. Step aside, Gordon Ramsay. Theres a new chef on the cusp of celebrity in the U.S., and hes from Florida. Timineri is part culinary ambassador, part farm expert and part cheerleader for Florida-grown food. Technically, hes a state employee working for the Florida Department of Agriculture and hes the only full-time state chef in the nation. Timineri tall, bald and known for wearing colorful sneakers travels the Sunshine State showing people how to use the states produce and seafood

in recipes. He creates healthy menus for people on food stamps and limited incomes and promotes the states food during trade missions around the world and in TV spots. Next month, hes headed to Brussels to talk up Florida grouper at the worlds largest seafood expo. It makes sense for the state to market its bounty: Agriculture is Floridas No. 2 industry, and unlike tourism, the No. 1 business, farming didnt suffer much in the recession. Florida is the nations top producer of oranges, grapefruit and sugarcane. Its also No. 1 with a range of vegetables, from snap peas to squash and sweet corn, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. He is such a fantastic ambassador not only for promoting products grown in Florida, said Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. But hes also a terrific ambassador with kids. Timineri has a new mission this year: teaching schoolchildren to eat healthier. As part of the Department of Agricultures effort to get kids to eat locally grown produce, Timineri does in-school cooking demos hes dubbed Extreme Cuisine. A recent personal victory came when he got a class of sixth-graders to try guacamole; the children were skeptical of whole avocados but loved the finished product. I have the best job in all of state government, Timineri said. The 37-year-old grew up in

Tallahassee with Italian grandparents and good food. I knew ever since I could remember that I wanted to be a chef, he said. When I was little, I was always peeking around in the kitchen. Timineri didnt go to culinary school. Instead, he got a job in a Tallahassee restaurant and then worked his way up in various kitchens. Eventually, he took a job as an event chef for the professional stock car and golf tours. In 2006, he heard the state chefs job created in the mid-1990s was open. He was hired over 60 others and makes $43,000 a year as part of the ag agencys marketing department. His office includes a small test kitchen attached to the Bureau of Seafood. Since becoming Floridas state chef, Timineri won a Food Network Challenge with a recipe for crispy, panseared Florida snapper with passion fruit cream. When hes not traveling, he helps with events at the governors mansion. He especially likes cooking for Gov. Rick Scott and his family. They are very health conscious, Timineri said. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and seafood. Timineri has one tip for home cooks: Buy produce in-season, and buy local. People should first go to grocery store or the farmers market and find out whats fresh and in season, he said. Then go home to find a recipe to match it.

Greek yogurt on a marathon-like growth spurt


By Michael Hill
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SOUTH EDMESTON, N.Y. Chobani is making Greek yogurt as fast as Americans are eating it. Its plant here in upstate New York farm country already pumps out 1.5 million cases of the thick yogurt every week, and pallets are stacked four stories high in the chilled warehouse. But like other Greek yogurt makers, Chobani is expanding. Greek yogurt now accounts for a quarter of the total yogurt market after a dizzying growth spurt that is especially apparent here in the heart of upstate New York. The nations No. 1 and No. 2 Greek yogurt brands Chobani and Fage, respectively are both expanding plants within 60 miles of each other, and another company is building a plant in western New York. The expansions come as the big U.S. yogurt makers are focusing on Greek products, too. Greek yogurt is made a bit differently than the thinner, more watery product that dominated U.S. supermarket shelves for decades. The whey is strained off, leaving a creamier yogurt high in protein and low in fat. While the quick growth has some hallmarks of a food fad think cupcakes or bubble tea the long-term investments point to a widespread industry belief that many Americans will continue to like their yogurt a bit richer. I personally do not believe that the yogurt story has started yet. I believe the yogurt story in this country is about to start, Chobanis founder, Hamdi Ulukaya, said during an interview in his ofce. The magnitude hasnt started yet. Ulukaya has harnessed the Greek yogurt boom more successfully than anyone. In 2005, he bought an old Kraft Foods plant southeast of Syracuse with plans to make the kind of yogurt common in his home country of Turkey. He believed the standard yogurt found on many supermarket shelves wasnt made right. His company, Agro-Farma, started by making yogurt for Stonyeld Farm other companies before launching Chobani in 2007 with limited runs to stores in the New York City area. The Chobani plant today bustles with 14 production lines mechanically squirting yogurt into plastic cups that zip down conveyor belts. The company said production will increase from 1.5 million cases a week to more than 2 million when the current $134 million expansion is completed this year. Another $128 million Chobani plant being built 2,000 miles west in Twins Falls, Idaho, will add still more. About 60 miles northeast, the Greek company Fage (pronounced FA-yeh) is in the early stages of doubling the capacity of its 3-year-old plant in Johnstown, N.Y. to about 160,000 tons of yogurt annually. By multiple accounts, the seeds of the Greek yogurt boom were planted years ago through Fage imports to New York City. Fage opened its U.S plant in 2008 to keep up with growing demand. Russell Evans, Fages marketing director, said sales have grown on average of 50 percent a year for a decade. Its going up exponentially every year, he said. Its constantly expanding. Though often pricier, Greek yogurt is increasingly becoming a refrigerator staple as consumers seek healthy, authentic foods. Kate Winnebeck, a 30-year-old Rochester, N.Y., resident, likes its tanginess, but said it was nutrition that initially

attracted her. I was looking for ways to get even more protein into my diet, she said. And I didnt want to, at the time, eat a lot of eggs in the morning. I dont have time for that. I work fulltime. The NPD Group, a consumer marketing research rm, reports that Greek yogurt appeals most to adult females and that its more popular in smaller and higher-income households. The Chobani and Fage two plants are a boon to upstate New Yorks ailing economy, not only for the more than 1,240 fulltime jobs combined, but because of their voracious demand for milk from New Yorks dairy farmers (it takes roughly four gallons of milk to make one gallon of Greek yogurt). Fifty or more tanker trucks make daily deliveries to the Chobani plant alone. Little wonder Gov. Andrew Cuomos administration chipped in $16 million in state incentives for the Chobani expansion, and the governor became personally involved in ironing out a

local intra-community dispute that was holding up the Fage expansion. Its been very good for the dairy industry, said Greg Wickham, chief executive ofcer of Dairylea Cooperative Inc., which supplies milk for Chobani. Another manufacturer, Alpina, plans to open a plant to the west in Batavia this summer that will make both Greek and Swiss-style for a yogurt and granola product. At least initially, Greek yogurt zoomed to popularity without a lot of attention from the major yogurt makers. Citigroup Global Markets in an analyst report last month said its growth to $1 billion in annual sales out of total yogurt sales of $4.1 billion caught the major U.S. yogurt makers at-footed. The result: Chobani had 53 percent of the Greek yogurt market, followed by Fage with 17 percent, Frances Danone (its subsidiary Dannon makes Oikos) with 14 percent and General Mills (Yoplait Greek) with 5 percent, according to Citigroup. The big players have clearly taken steps to grab some of the market back. General Mills added capacity and Dannon is in the process now, according to representatives of the two companies. General Mills this winter will introduce Yoplait Greek Parfaits with granola and new avors of Yoplait Greek yogurt in multi-packs. I think that youre going to see a very high level of innovation in the yogurt category generally and in Greek yogurt specically over the next 6 to 12 months, General Mills chief executive ofcer Kendall J. Powell told a conference call with analysts last month. General Mills and Dannon also began TV advertising this past summer. Oikos took direct aim at Chobani with a TV ad claiming their Greek yogurt was preferred 2-to-1 in a taste test. UBS analyst David Palmer said Greek yogurts momentum continues and the market shift to Chobani has accelerated.

yesterday, the board only voted on the lease renewal and heard more than three hours of public comment punctuated with poetry and songs. Esther Nord wondered if her comments would fall on deaf ears because the supervisors had already made up their minds but asked the board to look at the residents as individuals and not just a crowd or a number of beds. Today is Valentines Day. This place is one big heart. Give us our miracle on Valentines Day, she said. Over and over, the speakers told the board the nursing home is an asset rather than a liability for the county. Many said the county would be better off revisiting the billing and at least one questioned prior stafng cuts that make it impossible to keep the center from being fully occupied and thereby raise more revenue. Was this budget cut a deliberate attempt to right red ink? asked Barbara Meacham who, with her husband, spoke on behalf of a cousin who resides in the facility. Others suggested pulling the health care districts in to help and the cost of BLTC was often contrasted with the price tag of a new county jail. The crowd repeatedly told the board a tsunami of aging Baby Boomers is poised to worsen the problem of too-few beds and at least one told the supervisors to consider their own future. You people will be in our position someday and there wont be any place for you, said Anna Tupou, a resident of four years. The emotional hearing echoed similar meetings nearly a decade ago when San Mateo County took over the 281-bed nursing facility in 2003 at the request of the Department of Health Services. The state had put the facility into receivership because the operator faced bankruptcy and the county stepped in rather than risk patients being shipped as far away as Oregon. The home never turned into a moneymaker for the county and in July 2011 the civil grand to plentiful pastureland. Even in the southwest, there has been some good news, as the USDA reports that producers held onto more heifers, or young cows, than some expected. The January report showed a 1 percent increase over last years number of heifers retained. That could put the industry in position to grow the herd more quickly Until the cattle supply increases, consumers will see higher prices, said Lane Broadbent, a livestock analyst with KIS Futures in Oklahoma City. Broadbent said worldwide demand for U.S. beef also could increase in the next couple of years, causing prices to stay steady or rise even if the herd size grows as expected. An era of cheap meat might not happen for the Event Center three times a year, with the next event scheduled for April. But the show no longer contracts for police services with the San Mateo Police Department nor does it use the event centers security staff, police and event center ofcials said yesterday. Instead, it hires its own security. Considering the thousands of attendees at the weekend event and more than 300 exhibitors, however, three reported thefts is not a large number, police said. But the police department has not been on site at the event since last April, Sgt. Dave Norris told the Daily Journal. With vendors in and out of their stalls, jury recommended the county cut ties. The county responded by hiring consultant Lawrence Funk whose December 2011 report recommending not renewing the lease for nancial and safety reasons came under re yesterday. Mario Muzzi, who owns the building with this brother Vincent, reiterated to the board many of the points made in a 12-page letter he delivered last week to address the consultants report. Muzzi, who said he prefers to inform rather than advocate, said Funk is just wrong in his conclusion that the center is not physically t. If the building was unsafe, they would have shut us down, Muzzi said, referencing the state licensing process. Muzzi also offered the board a nancial carrot for a change of heart. If the county is considering staying, we will reduce our lease, Muzzi said. The offer was met with loud cheering and standing. Vincent Muzzi also made the offer and expressed frustration at Funks report, in particular the gures stated about the number of Medi-Cal beds available in the county. Instead of 1,500, Muzzi said the number is actually 887. They are wrong and I resent that the county has not corrected it, Muzzi said. Members of the San Mateo County Ombudsman Ofce also urged the board to keep the facility open and warned of a 20 percent death rate due to moving. Even those who dont die often lose weight, are emotionally distressed and frequently fall, said Judith Guilfoyle. The transfer trauma has already started, she said. BLTC also acts as safety net for the homeless, younger adults and the mentally ill three populations not well served by other providers, said Executive Director Tippy Irwin. The county has lost eight homes in the last decade and the county has half the beds per another two to three years, Broadbent said. Its basically supply and demand, and this USDA report showed that our supplies are going to increase. USDA livestock analyst Shayle Shagam said producers who see good prices at auction might still sell off their heifers. Ranchers must weigh whether theyll come out ahead by selling those heifers in coming months or hang onto them and sell the calves from the animals. Theres potential for increased retention, Shagam said. How that evolves during the year will depend on these producer decisions. The cattle industry has for decades gone through cycles of expansion and contraction. The U.S. herd typically grows for about 10 Norris said, many of the victims could not tell police exactly when the crimes occurred. These are crimes of opportunity, he said. Police do high-prole passing checks during setup and at the end of the show, Norris said, but did not police the event itself on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Event Center General Manager Chris Carpenter told the Daily Journal yesterday he had heard some minor thefts had occurred at the event but not to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars. For what it is worth, in my eight years, these are the rst show thefts we have had, Carpenter said. United Voluntary Services is a national

capita as the rest of the state, Irwin said. Even opening the full 96 beds at the hospital will not be enough, leaving approximately 100 residents needing placement, she said. Although several speakers argued the facility would benet from full occupancy, Fraser said the opposite is actually true because, even not counting rent and utilities, it runs at a decit in part by not pushing residents to leave when their time is up or force payments from those who do not make them. As a result, Fraser, said the county is spending $2 million in rent and another $1 million on upkeep without getting more beds or modern conditions. Frankly, more patients means a greater loss, Fraser said. Part of the nancial challenge, too, is that the state charges hospital-run nursing homes more because they believe residents are receiving an increased level of care even if as is the local case that doesnt happen, Ehrlich said. The rate of Medi-Cal reimbursement was a strong theme in yesterdays hearing, with debate remaining on just how much or how little the county stands to receive. A federal lawsuit currently has cuts on hold but Ehrlich said the county is still seeing the cuts enforced. So this is the reality we are dealing with today, Ehrlich said. Once the state approves the countys transition plan, a team will go to work guring out the necessary moves. The assessment process will include individual evaluations by doctors, social workers and other caregivers, said Lisa Mancini, director of aging and adult services for San Mateo County. Mancini pointed to the long lead time as a plus because nursing home beds open up sporadically and having recommendations in place ahead of time makes it more likely a resident will end up somewhere they wish to be. Rest assured, we will not exit Burlingame until we have an appropriate home for everybody, Mancini said. years before supplies increase to a point where cattle and beef prices begin to drop. Thats when ranchers begin to sell off their animals and the contraction begins. This is free enterprise, Texas AgriLife Extension Service economist Stephen Amosson said. Everything goes to the bottom line. If theyd be making a bunch of money they would have been expanding before this. Starting in the 1980s and through the 1990s the cycles were influenced by a shift in demand, which brought about big declines in cattle numbers. During that time people began to eat more chicken when the meat started showing up as nuggets, wings and in forms other than whole chickens, Anderson, the economist, said. service organization committed to assisting hospitalized veterans in Veterans Affairs Medical Centers throughout the nation. Yesterday, UVS President Mary Lee told the Daily Journal that the private security rm, San Jose-based Code 3, hired to patrol the event do the best job they can. Six to eight security guards patrol the event during the day and two stay the night while the event is closed, Lee said. We feel its ample security. We cant police every booth, she said. Besides, vendors should be insured. We do not guarantee security, we just provide it, she said. We are not responsible for thefts on the oor during the show.

but they are faced with a $9 million annual loss caused by cuts to reimbursement rates, expensive upkeep and a facility that, while not unsafe, is not modern. I know this transition will cause enormous stress and disruption and Im extremely sorry, said Health System Director Jean Fraser, her voice cracking. A large part of the problem is that Medi-Cal covers hospitalization and nursing care but not at-home care services. Fraser said the county has little choice when it comes to Medi-Cal beds because the program covers hospitalization and nursing care but not at-home services. The county is part of a pilot program for longterm care integration and Fraser is hopeful this will eventually offer all counties exibility to use those funds in the best and most nancially prudent way possible. I truly believe every crisis is an opportunity, Fraser said. However, as long as the county stays wedded to large institutions its creativity and innovation is stymied, she said. The current proposal calls for reopening Unit 1B of the San Mateo Medical Center with an extra 32 beds for a total of 64 set aside from short-term patients while long-term residents are placed elsewhere. Dr. Susan Ehrlich, hospital CEO, said the county should use the unutilized space because it pays $1 million a year in debt service. Several board members yesterday indicated a preference to add another 96 in the unit for a total of 128 and let Burlingame Long Term Care residents use those. Fraser estimated adding the others would take about nine months and cost approximately $2 million. That decision will be made at a later date;

Radio airplay soared and her bestselling single, I Will Always Love You, Whitney jumped to 195,000 Houston downloads in the week through Sunday, up from just 3,000 the week prior. Online music service Spotify said Houstons songs were streamed 2.4 million times between Saturday and Sunday alone.

In addition, dozens of the sixtime Grammy-winners unreleased recordings may someday be released to a public grieving her loss.

The only other city in the state with the same distinction is Cudahy, in Los Angeles County. Between 1999 and 2006, Menlo Parks fair share of the regions need for new housing included 184 units of affordable to very-low income, 90 to low income and 245 to moderate-income households. But Menlo Park issued permits for only 11 moderate-income units during that period and none for very-low and low-income units, according to data from the Association of Bay Area Governments and provided by Public Advocates, a San Francisco-based agency that advocates for affordable housing. Menlo Park Mayor Kirsten Keith told the Daily Journal yesterday that the city is looking hard at its housing needs. We absolutely understand the importance of the housing element and need to update it. We will be able to do what we need to do, Keith said regarding Facebooks need to expand. To help with the negotiations, the city has hired David Boesch, former San Mateo County manager and Menlo Parks former city manager. The companys Chief Financial Ofcer David Ebersman told the council last night that the next few months will be critical in determining whether Facebook will make Menlo Park its permanent home. The city should have appropriate, considered expectations, Ebersman said regarding public benets the city is seeking from the expansion. Facebooks presence will boost commerce, attract new business and bring the employees energy to the city, Ebersman said. Some one-time benets the city is also seeking from Facebook in the form of public benets include upgrading the Bay Trail to improve bicycle access to the campus and some area streetscape improvements. For the current planning period, which runs through 2014, Menlo Park must accommodate 993 total new housing units, including 226 units affordable to Under the agreement with the police ofcers, employees will receive a onetime $700 allowance for uniforms and an offer of six-month severance pay, about $48,907.30 per employee, for those who are not hired by the county, according to a staff report by City Manager Marcia Raines. The agreement also outlines how vacation, seniority and compensatory time off will be handled. At the same meeting, Millbrae approved a second reading of its singleuse bag ban. at GreenLight, a subsidiary of Corbis Images that helps license the images and work of late icons such as Albert Einstein and Johnny Cash.

As a former model who crossed racial barriers, Houstons image might nd a home with a fashion brand, much like Elizabeth Taylor, who continues to grace fragrances, or Audrey Hepburn, who has been given numerous tributes by clothing companies long after her passing. If Houston breaks into Forbes list of top-earning dead celebrities in 2012, she will likely get in towards the bottom end with single-digit millions of dollars, Reeder said. Michael Jackson dominated the list in 2010 and 2011, after his death three years ago.

With the states recent action to dissolve redevelopment agencies, a critical tool to build affordable housing has now been taken away, Councilwoman Kelly Fergusson told the Daily Journal. She also said housing was more of a social impact rather than an environmental impact to the surrounding community. The city has made some progress in addressing the citys affordable-housing needs, she said. To mitigate Facebooks impact on the regions housing needs, EnvisionTransform-Build East Palo Alto and the other groups want the company to develop or fund the development of 1,034 units of very-low income housing, 1,598 units of low income housing and 1,692 units of moderate income housing, according to the response letter. The group also wants Facebook to modify the proposed project to include on-site housing for lower-income employees. Lastly, it wants Facebook to agree to hire locally in lling new very-low and low income jobs to lessen the impact on transit and housing pressures in the area. Facebooks outreach and hiring should extend to the city of East Palo Alto, which will be most directly impacted by the project, according to the coalition letter. The East Palo Alto City Council also discussed the potential impacts of Facebooks expansion on its community in a meeting last night. Environmental analysis of projects such as the Facebook Campus project is required by the California Environmental Quality Act. The CEQA process and nal EIR for the project should be nalized by late April and the development agreement should be nalized by June, according to city staff.

LOS ANGELES Whitney Houstons career is getting a postmortem boost, but it isnt likely to be as big as the one that enriched the King of Pops estate after his death. Like the late Michael Jackson, Houston was in the midst of an attempted career revival. She was found dead at age 48 on Saturday in her Los Angeles hotel room on the eve of the Grammys, a stage she once ruled. It could be weeks before the coroners ofce completes toxicology tests that could establish the cause of death. In an outpouring of grief and a desire to remember her soaring voice and upbeat personality Houstons fans have propelled her decades-old recordings to the top of sales charts on iTunes and Amazon.com. Twitter recorded more than 2.5 million Tweets about her within two hours of her death. In the day and a half after she died, U.S. sales of Houstons albums skyrocketed. Weekly sales through Sunday

being urged to develop or contribute the funds needed to build thousands of affordable housing units in and around Menlo Park. Last night, the Menlo Park City Council weighed in on the development agreement for the Facebook East Campus project at 1601 Willow Road with an intent to secure a commitment from the social media giant to fund housing opportunities in the city and surrounding region. Facebook is asking Menlo Park to allow approximately 6,600 employees to occupy the East Campus, that includes nine buildings on the 57-acre site once occupied by Sun Microsystems. A conditional development permit between Facebook and Menlo Park, however, caps the number of employees at the site to only 3,600 people. Facebook asked the city to instead cap daily trips to and from the campus at 15,000 rather than cap the number of employees who will occupy the campus. Currently, about 2,000 employees occupy the East Campus, according to Facebook. Plans for the West Campus, with two buildings on 22 acres, have yet to be discussed. While Facebook is already partnering with a developer near the campus to build about 250 housing units, affordable-housing advocates say much more will be needed. The city has recently closed the comment period for the projects draft environmental impact report and response letters focused heavily on Facebooks impact to the regions housing needs and Menlo Parks failure to meet its affordable housing obligations under the states Housing Element Law. Envision-Transform-Build East Palo Alto and a coalition of groups including Urban Habitat; Youth United for Community Action; and Peninsula Interfaith Action blasted the city in a DEIR response letter for failing to plan for growth and future housing needs.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Forbidden fruit might

thoughtlessly taking full credit for something that others had a part in, just because its easier than explaining the full story. Itll end up making you look bad. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) If you havent been getting the type of mileage you thought you would from your budget, examine it to find out why. Dont ignore petty expenditures they could be the problem. ARIES (March 21-April 19) The world isnt going to open up any obvious paths for you to follow; youll be the one who decides what you want and where you want to go. Put forth the necessary effort yourself.

beckon you, but that does not mean you have to respond. Even if the situation entices you, the results would turn out to be disastrous. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) There is nothing more valuable than your reputation, and once its gone its usually gone forever. If someone tries to pin something on you, defend yourself with everything youve got. CANCER (June 21-July 22) An alliance of convenience is likely to be tested. If what binds this union isnt tough enough, and it probably isnt, the results could be disappointing. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Dont attempt to stand by a

product or job to which you arent proud to affix your name, just because you dont think it will be closely scrutinized by others. It will be. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Be on your best behavior, because social involvements are likely to have a significant effect on your reputation at this point in time. If youre a guest, dont overstay your welcome. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If what you do for others doesnt come from the goodness of your heart, people will quickly pick up on it and suspect you of an ulterior motive. Youll be in bad odor, to say the least. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Even if your intention is to be helpful, others will take any unsolicited suggestions you make as criticism of their work. Show an

appreciation for their efforts instead, and keep your nitpicks to yourself. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) With an eye to the future, manage your resources as prudently as possible. If you fail to do so and instead spend your funds on wasteful items, youll experience problems sooner rather than later. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might find yourself facing a situation where tough love is called for. Dont give in to a youngster if you know that what the child wants could be risky.
