Shaping the future through exploring the past
South City councilwoman shares family’s experience at internment prison
By Austin Walsh
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Karyl Matsumoto, South San
Francisco councilwoman, was 3
months old when she met her
adopted mother at the gates of the
Japanese-American internment
prison at Manzanar.
In observation of the Day of
Remembrance for Japanese-

Karyl
Matsumoto

Americans who
were held as
prisoners during World War
II, Matsumoto
will share her
family’s experience during a
free speaking
event Friday,
Feb. 19, in

South San Francisco.
Though she was too young to
remember her time at the prison
camp in the California Central
Valley, she feels it is important to
share the lessons she learned from
her parents.
“I am going to try to paint the
picture for others of what is not in
the history books,” she said. “I
hope to instill the experience with

them and hope they can appreciate
it.”
Matsumoto, 72, was taken to
the internment camp as an orphan
and eventually adopted by her parents Lillian and Harry, who operated an orphanage at Manzanar.
Though her mother, who died in
2014, was reluctant to speak publicly about her time in the camp,
Matsumoto said she feels it is her

obligation to share her family’s
legacy.
Before her death, Matsumoto’s
mother was convinced to illustrate
her experience at the camp
through an oral history project,
and Matsumoto hopes to educate
younger generations with that
message.

Man accused of killing infant has case dismissed
By Erin Baldassari
BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

A judge on Wednesday dismissed murder
charges against a man accused of killing an
infant during an alleged gang shooting in
East Palo Alto in 2011, attorneys involved
in the case said Thursday.
Prosecutors said Fabian Zaragoza, now
22, and Eric Valencia Vargas, now 21, shot
3-month-old Izack Jimenez Garcia and
wounded the baby’s parents on June 5,
2011.
Prosecutors initially only charged
Zaragoza with the shooting but added Vargas
as a defendant in 2014 after he allegedly told
investigators he had been in the area of the
shooting at the time, according to San
Mateo County District Attorney Steve
Wagstaffe.
Wagstaffe said prosecutors also had cellphone records corroborating Vargas’
account and said investigators found the gun
used in the shooting at Vargas’ house.
Vargas’ defense attorney, Kevin Nowack,
argued that Vargas did not in fact make any

Eric Valencia
Vargas

statements that he was in
the area of the shooting
and no witnesses identified him as being in the
area. Nowack said there
was a third suspect identified as being with
Zaragoza both at the time
shooting and that composite sketches of this
third suspect bore a dramatic resemblance to

Vargas.
While Wagstaffe acknowledged the presence of the third suspect, he said there was
not enough evidence to charge that person
in the shooting death of baby Izack.
Judge Jonathan Karesh sided with the
defense and dismissed the case, citing his
concerns that the cellphone evidence presented by the prosecution covered too wide
of an area to reasonably implicate Vargas,
Wagstaffe said.
The District Attorney’s Office could
potentially renew the case against Vargas if
investigators find new evidence, Wagstaffe

said. The case against Zaragoza will proceed. He is next due in court on March 11 to
set a new jury trial date.
Baby Izack was in the backseat of his parents’ car as they were leaving a baby shower when prosecutors allege that Zaragoza
opened fire. Izack’s mother attempted to
shield her son from the hail of bullets but
Izack was struck in the head and later died in
the hospital.
Both parents were wounded but survived
the attack.
Despite the judge’s dismissal of charges
against Vargas, he will remain in jail pending the outcome of a separate case,
Wagstaffe said.
A San Mateo County Grand Jury indicted
Vargas in 2014 on murder charges stemming from four murders in East Palo Alto
and San Francisco, a freeway shooting in
Belmont, a jewelry store robbery, and the
manipulation of witnesses, among other
allegations, between 2012 and 2013. The
grand jury indicted sixteen people in that
case, which prosecutors dubbed “Operation
Sunny Day.”

SAN FRANCISCO — An attorney for an
ex-California state senator convicted of
racketeering asked a judge to consider the
senator’s long history of public service and
his wife’s illness and sentence him to no
more than five years and three months in
prison, below the eight-year sentence recommended by prosecutors.
Leland Yee has accepted responsibility for
his crime and has otherwise led an exemplary life, his attorney, James Lassart, said in a
sentencing memorandum filed Wednesday.
Lassart also said Yee’s wife is suffering
from a life-threatening illness and requires
his help with daily tasks, and that federal
authorities manipulated one of Yee’s co-

defendants, who made
statements that implicated Yee.
“Unfortunately, Yee did
not adhere to his lifetime
principles of honesty
and integrity, ” Lassart
wrote. “He recognizes
that his actions were
wrong and he is remorseLeland Yee
ful and deeply regrets his
conduct.”
Prosecutors said in their sentencing
memo that an eight-year sentence would
reflect the “breadth and length” of Yee’s
crimes and act as a deterrent to others.
Yee is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb.
24 after pleading guilty in July to one count

Study: Right gut bacteria may
protect against malnutrition
By Lauran Neergaard
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Manipulating
what kinds of bacteria live in the gut
might lead to a new way to treat millions of children suffering chronic
malnutrition, says new research that
suggests the right microbes can help
get the most out of a poor diet.
Researchers culled intestinal bacteria from babies and toddlers in Malawi,
where malnutrition is a serious problem, and transferred them into mice for
study. Tweaking those gut microbes
improved growth — even though the
animals didn’t eat more, or more nutritiously.
We share our bodies with trillions of
bacteria, a customized set called a
microbiome that starts building at
birth, and Thursday’s work is the latest
to illustrate how crucial it is to develop
a healthy one. Among the findings:
Certain nutrients in breast milk may
help that happen.
“If we could hammer home a key
point, microbiota count, ” said Dr.
Jeffrey Gordon of Washington

“A healthy microbiome will allow us to access
calories we might not have been able to use before.”
— Dr. Ilseung Cho, a gastroenterologist and gut
bacteria specialist at New York University School of Medicine

University in St. Louis, who led the
series of experiments published in the
journals Science and Cell. “Building
healthy gut microbiota we think is
important for health in the course of
one’s life.”
Gut bacteria do more than simply
break down food for digestion. They
synthesize particular vitamins and
micronutrients, and influence immune
responses, for example.
“A healthy microbiome will allow us
to access calories we might not have
been able to use before,” explained Dr.
Ilseung Cho, a gastroenterologist and
gut bacteria specialist at New York
University School of Medicine, who
wasn’t involved in the new work.
More research is needed before testing the approach in children, but Cho
said the findings suggest there may be
“very precise bacteria or very precise
nutrient interventions that can unlock

the microbiome and help it combat
malnutrition.”
While providing special “therapeutic foods” and vitamin supplements
helps reduce deaths from malnutrition,
Gordon said children still experience
stunted growth and neurodevelopmental problems. His team turned to
Malawi, where according to UNICEF
almost half of children under 5 have
growth stunted by malnutrition. The
researchers already suspected gut bacteria played a role, based on previous
research with pairs of Malawian
twins, only some of whom were affected.
This time, working with more than
250 healthy or undernourished children, Gordon’s team defined how a
healthy gut microbiome normally
develops — and found that the chronically malnourished tots harbored an
immature one, too young for their age.

STATE GOVERNMENT
• As s embl y Speaker pro Tem
Kev i n Mul l i n, D-So uth San
Franci s co , has introduced legislation in response to a 2 0 1 5 San
Mateo Co unty Grand Jury recommendation that each school district in San Mateo County establish a database of all head injuries and that student athletes be provided with neurocognitive tests prior to the
start of athletic competition.
Current legislation requires that any athlete suspected
of sustaining a concussion be removed from the game or
practice until they have been cleared by a licensed health
care provider and also requires coaches to receive two
hours of online training on how to identify concussions.
Neurocognitive testing establishes a baseline for each
athlete’s normal neurocognitive function at the beginning of an athletic season prior to any competitions.
Post-injury, a retest provides information that is measured against the baseline.
This information will help identify the extent of the
injury and the best course of treatment. It will also help
determine if the athlete should be held out of competition for a longer period of time, according to Mullin’s
office.

Superdelegates help
Clinton expand her
lead despite N.H. loss
By Hope Yen
and Stephen Oklemacher
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — So much for
Bernie Sanders’ big win in New
Hampshire.
Since then, Hillary Clinton has
picked up endorsements from 87
more superdelegates to the
Democratic National Convention,
dwarfing Sanders’ gain from the
New Hampshire primary, according to a new Associated Press survey. Sanders has added just 11
superdelegate endorsements.
If these party insiders continue
to back Clinton overwhelmingly
— and they can change their minds
— Sanders would have to win the
remaining primaries by a landslide
just to catch up. He would have to
roll up big margins because every
Democratic contest awards delegates in proportion to the vote, so
even the loser can get some.
After the contests in Iowa and
New Hampshire, Sanders has a
small 36-32 lead among delegates
won in primaries and caucuses. But
when superdelegates are included,
Clinton leads 481-55, according
to the AP count. It’s essentially a

parallel election that unders c o r e s
Clinton’s lopsided support
from
the
De m o c r a t i c
establishment.
The disparity
is sparking a
Bernie Sanders b a c k l a s h
among some
Sanders supporters, who complain
that the Democratic nominating
process is decidedly undemocratic,
rigged in favor of Clinton.
Some of them — not part of the
campaign, Sanders’ people say —
are contacting superdelegates who
have publicly endorsed Clinton.
Their message isn’t subtle, or
always welcome.
“I’m sick and tired of them,”
Cordelia Lewis-Burks, a superdelegate from Indiana, said of the
Sanders backers. “It’s very aggravating to be bashed on my own
computer by these people who it’s
probably the first time they’ve
ever voted. I’ve been in the trenches since I was 20.”

said.
“I’m an African-American male

“I have experienced the struggles.
The experiences they are sharing
don’t faze me in comparison.”
Superdelegates aren’t new. They
have been part of the Democratic

Party’s nominating process since
1984.
They automatically attend the
national convention and can support the candidate of their choice,
regardless of whom primary voters
back. They are party leaders —
members of Congress, party officials and members of the
Democratic National Committee.
There are 712 superdelegates,

about 30 percent of the 2,382 delegates needed to claim the nomination.
The Republicans also have some
automatic delegates but not nearly
as many.
Clinton’s campaign expresses
confidence that she will maintain a
strong lead among superdelegates
even as she focuses on upcoming
voting.

FBI searches home of San Bernardino shooter’s brother

A police cruiser drives by the home of Raheel Farook, brother of San
Bernardino shooter Rizwan Farook, in Corona.

CORONA — FBI agents on
Thursday searched the California
home belonging to a family member of the husband-and-wife
killers who massacred 14 people
in the San Bernardino terror
attack, but the relative was not
arrested and has not been named a
suspect.
Syed Rizwan Farook’s brother,
Syed Raheel Farook, is a military
veteran who earned medals for
fighting global terrorism. The
search warrant is sealed, and FBI

any
i n fo rmat i o n
other than to
confirm
a
search was conducted at a
home in the
Raheel Farook city of Corona
in an ongoing
investigation.
To serve a search warrant,
authorities must have probable
cause a crime was committed and
items connected to the crime are
likely to be found at the location.

Messages left for attorneys representing the Farook family were
not immediately returned.
Stacy Mozer, who lives around
the corner from the home, said he
watched as agents carried away
armloads of boxes filled with
manila envelopes, a computer
tower and stacks of paper. At least
a dozen agents were present.
He described Raheel Farook and
wife Tatiana as ideal neighbors.
The couple drove another neighbor to doctor’s appointments last
year when she had cancer surgery,
treated her to meals out and
fetched her prescriptions for her,
even paying for them, he said.

Cheered in Havana, president’s
Cuba trip spurs GOP skepticism
By Josh Lederman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — President Barack
Obama’s plans for a history-making trip to
Cuba drew hopeful cheers in Havana on
Thursday but equally emphatic condemnation
from many U.S. lawmakers and Republican
presidential candidates, who accused the president of rewarding a “dictatorial regime.”
Jeb Bush called the plans “appalling.”
Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, born in
Havana, deemed Obama’s March 21-22 visit
“absolutely shameful.” New Jersey Sen. Bob
Menendez — a member of Obama’s party —
accused him of ceding U.S. leverage to the
communist nation 90 miles south of Florida.
“The president is again prioritizing shortterm economic interests over long-term and
enduring American values,” said Menendez,
another Cuban-American. He likened
Obama’s rapprochement with Cuba to his
nuclear deal with Iran.

Some want to limit justices to 18 years on Supreme Court
By Mark Sherman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Justice Antonin
Scalia’s sudden death a month before his
80th birthday and the potential impasse
over replacing him is giving new impetus
to an old idea: Limiting the service of
Supreme Court justices.
Scalia had been on the court for nearly
30 years, longer than any of the current
justices and all but 14 of the 112 men and
women who have served on the court.
“I think 30 years on the court is too

long for anyone — liberal or conservative.
That is just too much
power in one person’s
hands for too long a
period, ” said Erwin
Chemerinsky, a liberal
legal scholar and dean
of the law school at the
of
Antonin Scalia University
California at Irvine.
The Constitution says federal judges
“shall hold their offices during good
behaviour,” which means essentially as

they long as they wish.
The most talked-about idea has support
among both liberals and conservatives. A
single 18-year-term would replace lifetime
tenure. Going forward, presidents would
appoint a justice every two years, ensuring both continuity on the court and two
picks for each presidential term. On the
right, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry
advanced a similar idea during his 2012
Republican campaign for president.
The Supreme Court already had been a
topic of conversation in the presidential
race. Scalia’s death has brought into stark

relief how Supreme Court appointments
can be a president’s most lasting legacy.
Even with Scalia’s death, there remain
three justices who are at least 77 years old
and have served more than 20 years.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s 83rd birthday is March 15. Justice Anthony
Kennedy turns 80 on July 23. Justice
Stephen Breyer will be 78 on August 15.
Even with improved medical care and
longer life expectancies, health crises on
the court are as inevitable as they are in
society at large, said historian David
Garrow.

Next moves for the Coastal Commission
Other voices

Pasadena Star-News

W

e’ll say this for the
California Coastal
Commission: It must have
had a powerful reason for firing
Charles Lester as director last week
after facing down more than 100 of
his advocates and six hours of impassioned testimony in his defense.
If only the public were privy to that
reason.
Now the commission and Gov. Jerry
Brown, who tacitly approved the firing, have to prove to Californians
that the commitment to protecting
the coast and controlling development that could forever change its
nature remains intact. Last week’s
action just raised questions, as evidenced by the introduction of a bill
Tuesday seeking to bring transparency to the commission’s dealings with
lobbyists.
Lester is, to his core, a defender of
coastal protection and public access
as intended in the Coastal Act, which
led to the creation of the commission
and to the job he held for four years.
He asked for a public hearing to
save that job. But only after all the
public testimony did commissioners
offer hints of why they wanted him

gone. Then they went into closed session for the final discussion and a 7-5
vote on Feb. 10.
Failing to publicly clarify their
thinking made Lester an environmental martyr and cast doubt on the commissioners’ agenda.
Clearly legislators are concerned:
Three Assembly members on Tuesday
announced Assembly Bill 2002 to
require anyone lobbying the Coastal
Commission to report whom they
work for, their pay and the issues on
which they try to sway the commission.
Meanwhile, choosing a stellar
environmentalist to succeed Lester
will help rebuild trust.
Commissioners also will need to
scrupulously justify their every action
from now on. Scrutiny will be
intense.
Lester was only the second director
of the commission, hand-picked as a
successor by the venerated late Peter
Douglas, who was instrumental in
winning voter approval for coast protection in 1972 and in writing the
Coastal Act. He ran the commission
for 26 years, setting the gold standard
as its advocate and enforcer.

Both Lester and his mentor were the
truest of true believers in this cause.
But Douglas also was more adept at
the political and administrative elements of the job, a better diplomat
than his successor. Some commissioners and others now say Lester was
difficult to work with, insular and
bureaucratic.
Identifying the commission’s concerns at the beginning of the hearing
would have been fairer to Lester and
the people testifying on his behalf.
They might have better addressed the
issues had they understood them.
Now the burden is on the commission to prove it represents the public,
not development interests. And that
conjures up an unfortunate comparison: It was Brown’s appointees to the
commission who apparently fomented Lester’s removal. Brown has supported a California Public Utilities
Commission whose members cozied
up to utilities instead of protecting
the public interest. Who can blame
Californians for suspecting that a
Brown-backed Coastal Commission,
with Lester gone, will take the part of
developers?
We hope that isn’t so. But like
every other coastal advocate from San
Diego to Oregon, we will be watching.

Renovation of Millbrae Square
reeks of questionable intentions
Editor,
The article “Fresh look coming to
Millbrae Square: Shopping center to
receive new paint, sign, landscaping
and more” in the Feb. 5 edition of the
Daily Journal states that Millbrae
Square shopping center will receive a
new face lift and paint, in an attempt
to “breathe new life” into downtown
Millbrae. They intend to reface the
sidewalks and remove five parking
spaces on Broadway and replace them
with benches for people to sit.
Parking is at a premium in Millbrae
as it is, so why would City Council
even consider replacing parking with
benches that will hardly be used?
There are benches in front of the
Kohl’s building and Safeway that are
hardly used. Who made this decision?
Why is the cleanest part of downtown
Millbrae undergoing improvements
when the rest of the city does nothing? Why doesn’t the City Council
go after the areas from the post office
to Victoria Avenue, which happens to
be the most revolting and disgusting
area of the city? I personally cannot
understand why anyone in their right

mind would consider eating at any
place in that area.
My thought is, the owners of
Millbrae Square have something up
their sleeve. Are they trying to butter
up the City Council to get the church
to occupy the Kohl’s building? Watch
this move carefully. Do not let this be
another Tai Wu caper.

Our representative on
the Coastal Commission

A

s one of the dissenting votes in the 7-5 decision to oust Charles Lester as executive director of the California Coastal Commission, San
Mateo County Supervisor Carole Groom obviously didn’t think he needed to go.
A week after the contentious vote that came after a 10hour public hearing, Groom also doesn’t think the commission needs a dramatic overhaul either and will be
able to forge ahead once new leadership is in place.
However, she maintains it will be difficult to find the
right person for the job, especially after someone who
led the statewide agency for five years was delivered his
walking papers in a very public display, after a closed
session discussion and vote — though Groom made a
motion that failed to gain
enough support to carry that
the vote be made in public.
“[The commission] doesn’t
need an overhaul but some
healing needs to occur,” she
said. “And finding the right
person will take some time.”
There was a strong sense
from other commissioners
that they did not get their
questions answered and there
is an issue with diversity
among the commission’s
staff though Groom said there
has been 25 new hires and that the diversity level there
is at about 30 percent.
“Progress is being made,” she said.
Groom acknowledges that Lester’s wasn’t the most
outgoing of personalities and that many of the issues
brought up by other commissioners could have been
addressed.
“I do not think he should have been fired. He did an
excellent job, it’s a big organization, a complex organization,” she said.
Groom has been on the commission for about three
years and said she didn’t get her calls returned right
away at first but worked through that with Lester and
always received the answers she was looking for, but
not necessarily overnight. She also said Lester was very
attentive to the needs of San Mateo County.
The Coastal Commission was established in 1972
after voters approved Proposition 20, and was reaffirmed four years later through the California Coastal
Act. It has a wide breadth of commissioners appointed
by the governor, the Senate Rules Committee and the
Speaker of the Assembly. Half are elected officials and
the other half are members of the public. Its purview is
vast as it deals with issues, mainly development and
access, along the 840 miles of California’s coast.
Lester’s supporters vociferously claim developers and
lobbyists influenced his ousting and Democratic lawmakers this week announced legislation that would
require lobbyists to register with the state and report
their activities to the commission while also disclosing
their clients. Groom agrees with the proposal and said
she is embarrassed that isn’t a current practice or
requirement. Still, she believes strongly in the Coastal
Act and said, having read through it, that it was a very
forward-thinking document for its time.
The biggest issue for San Mateo County has been the
Martin’s Beach conflict, in which an affluent property
owner sought to cut off public access to a public shoreline. Groom doesn’t see the executive director’s ouster,
or the fallout from it, creating issues with that case as it
is a legal issue now being fought in court and through
legislation authored by state Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San
Mateo.
***
It was Hill who Groom replaced on the San Mateo
County Board of Supervisors when he was elected to the
state Assembly. She was appointed from the San Mateo
City Council in 2009 and won election in 2010 to represent District 2, which covers San Mateo, Foster City
and Belmont. She easily won re-election in 2014 and
said she is interested in running again when her seat is
up in 2018. She can run for three full four-year terms.
“I have my health and lots of energy. I still feel like I
can make a contribution,” she said. “And if all that is
still aligned [in 2018], then I’m running.

NEW YORK — Stocks slipped
Thursday as a three-day rally ran out of
steam. A surge in oil prices also
slowed down, and consumer stocks
fell after Wal-Mart reported disappointing sales and cut its projections
for the year.
The losses were small but spread
across many industries. Energy stocks
fell the most, followed by banks.
Those stocks had made big gains over
the last three days as the market rallied. Wal-Mart’s weak results put pressure on other retailers as well as supermarket chains.
The Dow Jones industrial average

composite index slid 46.53 points, or
1 percent, to 4,487.54.
Wal-Mart’s profit fell compared to
last year and its sales were weaker than
analysts expected. The retailer now
says its net sales this year will be
about the same as in 2015. It’s struggling with competition from online
giant Amazon and other retailers and
is also paying its employees more,
which has reduced its profits. In

January the company said it would
close 269 stores.
On Thursday the stock lost $1.99,
or 3 percent, to $64.12. It’s down 26
percent over the last year.
Wal-Mart is the first major retailer
to report its quarterly results.
Competitors including Target, JC
Penney and Macy’s will follow next
week. Retail consultant Walter Loeb
said he thinks most of those competitors will also report disappointing
results.
“There are many, many retailers who
have not been proactive in keeping
their expenses in check,” he said,
adding that weakening sales growth
makes that a bigger problem. Loeb
said consumers are spending cautiously because they are worried about job
security and aren’t sure if the U.S.
economy will keep growing.
J.C. Penney lost 20 cents, or 2.6
percent, to $7. 63 and Costco fell
$2.26, or 1.5 percent, to $148.65.
Wal-Mart’s struggles also affected
supermarkets, as the company noted
that meat and dairy prices are down.

Yahoo CEO tries to reassure
mobile partners amid turmoil
By Michael Liedtke
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO — Yahoo CEO
Marissa Mayer found herself in an awkward situation Thursday at the struggling Internet company’s annual conference for the makers of mobile apps.
She had to persuade an auditorium full
of programmers and advertising partners that Yahoo will grow into an
increasingly important player in the
mobile market. This while the company is dramatically shrinking to
appease restless shareholders threatening to overthrow management unless
things get better.
Just before Mayer’s appearance,
Yahoo tried to underscore its long-term
commitment to mobile by projecting
this statement on a huge screen hanging above the stage: “Imagine what the
next seven years will bring.”
It’s not even clear that Yahoo will
exist in its current form seven months
from now, given that some of its shareholders want the company to sell its
Internet operations after 3 1/2 years of
declining revenue under Mayer’s leadership. Mayer and the rest of Yahoo’s

board is exploring
“strategic alternatives” that could
include a sale while
the
Sunnyvale,
California, company sheds 15 percent
of its workforce and
closes unprofitable
Marissa Mayer services.
Even though she
is deviating from an original turnaround plan, Mayer has steadfastly
insisted that Yahoo Inc. will still have
a bright future after her latest overhaul.
Mayer touched upon that theme
Thursday as she emphasized that that
Yahoo is still investing heavily in
mobile devices despite the massive cutbacks in other areas of the company.
“There is incredible potential here,”
she assured the mobile developers.
“Together, we can build the future of
mobile.”
Unlike her appearance at Yahoo’s
inaugural mobile conference last year,
Mayer gave a brief presentation before
leaving most of the talking to executives that joined her management team
after the company bought mobile ana-

lytics service Flurry for $270 million
in 2014. In another departure from last
year, Mayer didn’t hold a news conference after her onstage appearance,
allowing her to avoid further questions
about Yahoo’s fate.
Mayer’s job security is shaky
because Yahoo’s stock has sunk by
more than 40 percent since the end of
2014, reflecting Wall Street’s frustration with her inability to deliver on her
promise to revive Yahoo’s revenue
growth. The company’s revenue, after
subtracting ad commissions, fell 7 percent last year.
The Flurry deal is widely seen as one
of Mayer’s savviest moves since she
defected from Google to Yahoo in July
2012, but that acquisition still hasn’t
been able to provide Yahoo with
enough clout to become a major player
in mobile.
None of Yahoo’s apps are among the
Top 70 in Apple’s app store for the
iPhone and its share of the mobile ad
market remains small even though its
revenue from smartphones and tablets

Virgin America meets 4Q profit forecasts
By David Koenig
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DALLAS — Cheaper jet fuel and a tax
gain helped Virgin America Inc. overcome lower fares and boosted fourthquarter profit.
Virgin’s average fare fell 9 percent
from a year earlier to $187, partly
because of a fare war in Dallas with
Southwest Airlines and American
Airlines.
CEO David Cush said in an interview
Thursday that the average price passengers pay per mile could continue to
fall through 2016 as airlines — including his own — keep adding to the supply of seats for sale.
Cush said industrywide passengercarrying capacity will rise about 5 percent this year, faster than economic

growth. Virgin expects first-quarter
capacity to be 14 percent to 16 percent
higher than a year ago as it gets more
planes.
And the company predicted that a
key figure of revenue per mile will drop
in the first quarter by 3 percent to 5
percent.
Cush said he was surprised by how
long the fare war in Dallas has lasted
— it began in October 2014 when
Southwest and Virgin added long-haul
flights from Dallas Love Field. At
nearby
Dallas-Fort
Worth
International Airport, American has
responded to competition from discount Spirit Airlines by slashing fares
too.
On flights to Los Angeles and
New York, Southwest and American
“are still selling roughly half of the
airplane for under $100 per passen-

ger, ” Cush said.
He said Virgin will not match all low
fares from its rivals.
The Burlingame-based company said
fourth-quarter net income soared to
$190.9 million from $3.9 million a
year ago. Excluding a noncash gain of
$173.5 million related to accounting
of tax assets and other one-time items,
Virgin earned $1.20 per share, matching the average forecast of eight analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment
Research.
Revenue rose 5 percent to $391.5
million.
For the year, the company earned
$340.5 million, or $7.66 per share,
on revenue of $1.53 billion.
Virgin shares rose 65 cents, or 2.2
percent, to close at $30.53. They have
dropped 14.5 percent in the past 12
months.

a glut in oil production, but the U.S.
government reported that energy
stockpiles are still growing.
U.S. crude added 11 cents to close at
$30.77 a barrel in New York. The price
of U.S. oil has climbed 17 percent
over the last week. Brent crude, a
benchmark for international oils, lost
22 cents to close at $34.28 a barrel in
London.
With oil prices trading around 13year lows, at least six OPEC nations
have backed a plan that would stop oil
production from increasing any further. That would help address a giant
supply glut. Iran, which has not
agreed to the deal and has said it wants
to keep increasing its production, said
it supports any measure to raise oil
prices.
Investors saw that as a good sign,
but the deal won’t go into effect unless
all 13 OPEC members agree to it.
Meanwhile, stockpiles keep growing.
According to an Energy Information
Administration report, oil inventories
grew by 2.1 million barrels and gasoline stockpiles increased by 3 million
barrels.

Ritterbusch said people are driving a

it’s not helping improve prices.

Making soda cool: Coke,
Pepsi try giving soda hipster appeal
NEW YORK — Coke and Pepsi want to shake their Big
Gulp image and cultivate a more hipster appeal.
The two soda giants are trying to rehabilitate soda’s
cheap image and fetch higher prices as Americans keep cutting back on sugary fizz.
That means more stylized cans and bottles of Coke and
the expansion of Mexican Coke, which is sweetened with
sugar instead of high-fructose corn syrup. Pepsi is pushing
“craft sodas” and even plans to open an eatery “honoring
the kola nut” in New York City in the spring.
A press release for Pepsi’s Kola House last month was
peppered with marketing buzzwords, and said the lounge
would have a “resident cocktail curator” and “artisanal
menu.” The idea is that its mere existence could burnish
soda’s image, even if most people never go.
“At the end of the day, we just have to stay culturally relevant,” said Seth Kaufman, chief marketing officer for
PepsiCo beverages in North America.
Soda remains a big business, with the familiar sizes like
12-ounce cans and 2-liter bottles still accounting for the
vast majority of the market.

Twitter stock gets $2.25M
vote of confidence from two execs
SAN FRANCISCO — Two Twitter executives have given
the company a $2.25 million vote of confidence.
Documents filed Thursday revealed Twitter Executive
Chairman Omid Kordestani spent about $2 million to buy
122,250 shares of the company’s stock earlier this week. A
separate filing revealed Chief Financial Officer Anthony
Noto spent nearly $250,000 for 15,500 shares of Twitter.
The show of faith helped lift Twitter’s stock by more than
5 percent in Thursday’s trading.
Investors have been selling Twitter because the company’s messaging service has been struggling to broaden its
audience. The slowdown has raised doubts about its
prospects for future growth.
Despite Thursday’s gains, Twitter’s stock closed at
$18.43, well below its November 2013 initial public offering price of $26 and even further from its peak price of
$74.73 reached a month later.

Oregon lawmakers weigh
landmark minimum wage proposal
SALEM, Ore. — Oregon is trailblazing a national debate

As the federal minimum wage has sat unchanged since the
start of the Great Recession, more than a dozen states have
raised the rate within their borders in recent years. Another
dozen or so are considering taking up the issue this year,
either through legislative action or ballot initiative, as

in shootout

Lee, who Flynn expects to be cleared to play
for the first round of CCS, the offensive onus
fell on Duncanson and she did her best not to
let her team down.
Despite more than two dozen goals scored
this season, Duncanson had been suffering
from some shaky finishing in big games
—  most notably a pair of matches against
Mercy-Burlingame. The Gryphons split the
season series with the Crusaders, but if
Duncanson had finished even half her scoring
opportunities, the Gryphons would have
swept Mercy.

SUNRISE, Fla. — These days, the more

the better.
Joe Pavelski scored the winning goal in
the shootout and the Sharks beat the
Florida Panthers 2-1 on
Thursday night for their
third straight victory.
The Sharks also won
their third straight road
game and improved their
away record to 20-8-2.
San Jose’s road play has

Division despite an 1112-3 home record.
“No doubt, (on) the road, we’re just committed to a pretty disciplined game, ”
Pavelski said.
Both teams locked down defensively
late. The teams totaled just four shots on
goal in the third period, with Logan
Couture scoring on the Sharks’ lone shot.
Martin Jones made 11 of his 20 saves in
the first period and stopped Jussi Jokinen
in the third round of the shootout to seal it.
“We stuck with it and found a way, which

Gryphons going to CCS
By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Crystal Springs striker Megan Duncanson
chipped a shot over a charging Notre DameSan Jose goalkeeper midway through the second half of what was, essentially, a playoff
game Thursday.
And then Duncanson waited. And waited
some more. Finally, she raised her arms above
her head as her shot — finally — nestled into
the back of the net and she began hopping and
jumping toward jubilant teammates.
It was her second goal of the game against
the Regents and the 28th of the season, but

none were bigger. Her two strikes proved to be
enough to send the Gryphons into the Central
Coast Section playoffs following a 2-1 win
over Notre Dame in a West Bay Athletic League
play-in game Thursday in Hillsborough.
“That was a scary goal,” Duncanson said, as
she waited for her shot to return to earth. “It
was a slow one.”
The CCS berth is just the second in the
school’s history and its the first time in three
chances that the Gryphons won the play-in
game.
“Third time’s a charm,” said Crystal Springs
coach Michael Flynn.

With 48-4 record, Warriors stand pat
By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND — With a 48-4 record and last
year’s NBA championship trophy in their
possession, the Golden State Warriors had
little need for upgraded at the trade deadline.
So while most of the other 29 teams were
busily working the phones and making
deals, the Warriors were more relaxed on
deadline day Thursday, getting their final
practice in before starting a six-game postAll-Star break road trip Friday night in
Portland.

“It’s nice to know who
we are and know our identity and know how were
going to play and how
we’re going to win, ”
point guard Stephen
Curry said. “With the
pieces we have, everybody is really well estabSteph Curry lished with their roles.
That’s a comfortable
feeling for sure. We’ve been on the other
side of it not too long ago when you never
knew if you were one piece away or one

move away or how a trade could impact a
season either positively or negatively. I
like where we are.”
There is plenty of reason for that. The
Warriors followed up their first championship in 40 years by winning a record 24
straight games to open the season. They
have shown few signs — if any — of slowing down since then, having won 11
straight before the All-Star break, including
wins by a combined 64 points against contenders Cleveland and San Antonio.
With the league’s most efficient offense
led by Curry’s 29.8 points per contest and

league-leading 245 3-pointers and the second most efficient defense anchored by fellow All-Star Draymond Green, the Warriors
are a team without a major weakness, leading to the inactivity at the deadline.
“We like our team,” coach Steve Kerr said.
“We’re doing OK. I don’t see the need to do
much.”
That’s not to say that Kerr doesn’t see
room for improvement over the final 30
regular-season games to get Golden State
into top form for the playoffs.
The biggest issues Kerr pointed out were

High school coach retires
after scuffling with student
By David Nishneau
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A Maryland private high school
announced the retirement of its longtime
football coach Thursday after a player said
the coach tried to choke him while kneeling
on his chest in a recorded interaction that
the student said began as horseplay.
A cellphone video shot by another student
and verified by the Associated Press shows
coach John Ricca pulling 17-year-old
Errance Meeks Jr. over a table and onto a
gymnasium floor and then struggling on
top of him for about 15 seconds during a
physical education class Feb. 4. The table
obscures the view, but Meeks’ khaki-clad
legs can be seen kicking until he manages
to stand up with Ricca clinging to his necktie. They struggle against a wall for about
10 more seconds until a young woman steps
between them.
Thomas Powell, president of St. John’s
Catholic Preparatory School in Frederick,
said the 32-second clip doesn’t show events
before and after the interaction that he
watched on school surveillance video as
part of a thorough investigation. Powell
wouldn’t disclose his findings, citing confidentiality concerns.
“Let me just suggest there’s a little bit
more. There are always lots of sides to
everything,” he said.
Powell said he has apologized to Meeks’
parents “for any activity that was not up to
the standards of a private school.”
Ricca, who coached 10 seasons at the
school, couldn’t be reached immediately for

Principal recommends sex
assault suspect for athletic award
WINDHAM, Maine — A Maine high
school principal recommended a football

of sexually assaulting two children.

charged in juvenile court in November with
two counts of gross sexual assault on victims under 8.

comment. Calls to his listed home number
were eventually answered by a man saying it
was a Pizza Hut.
Meeks, a senior co-captain of last season’s 10-1-1 Vikings team, said in a telephone interview that the episode began
when he playfully rubbed Ricca’s shoulders
from behind as the coach sat in a chair. He
said Ricca stood up with Meeks clinging to
his back until the coach backed up into
some equipment, forcing Meeks to drop off.
He said Ricca returned to his chair but Meeks
approached again, laughing and feigning a
lunge. Meeks said Ricca then swung at him
and missed twice before grabbing his shirt
and yanking him across the table. That’s
where the video starts. Both appear to raise
their arms at the same time but Meeks said
he didn’t swing at the coach.
He said he was surprised and angered by
Ricca’s response to his “horsing around.”
“We got along during football season. We
didn’t have any problems,” Meeks said.
His father, Errance Meeks Sr., worked
under Ricca as an assistant coach for the
past three seasons. He said he’s pursuing an
assault charge against him.
Until this incident, “I would have thought
it was a cordial professional relationship,”
the elder Meeks said.
He said he has withdrawn his son from St.
John’s and is enrolling him in a public
school.
Ricca played for the now-defunct World
Football League and was an assistant coach
for several years at Catholic University. His
father Jim Ricca played for the NFL’s
Washington Redskins, Detroit Lions and
Philadelphia Eagles.
Police say they notified school administrators of the felony charges.
About five weeks later, the student was
recommended for the Frank J. Gaziano
Offensive and Defensive Lineman Awards by
Principal Chris Howell, along with
Windham’s athletic director and its football
coach.
The award is presented to linemen who are
considered positive role models and display
integrity, honesty and athletic citizenship.
Howell says it’s up to the court system to
decide if the student is guilty.
The student received $1,000.

‘Junior’ picks up 17th
career win at Daytona
By Jenna Fryer
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Dale Earnhardt
Jr. won the first qualifying race Thursday
night for the Daytona 500 to earn a starting
spot on the second row for NASCAR’s
biggest event.
It was Earnhardt’s 17th career win at
Daytona International Speedway, and came
on the 15th anniversary of his father’s
death. The late Dale Earnhardt was killed on
the final lap of the 2001 Daytona 500, and
led all drivers with 34 career victories at
Daytona.
“It’s another win at Daytona for the
Earnhardts, adding to the legacy,” Earnhardt
said in victory lane. “We’re up here in the
50s now.”
Earnhardt dominated the 150-mile race
and easily darted around leader Denny
Hamlin with six laps remaining to cruise to
the victory. Earnhardt led 43 of the 60 laps
in his Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet, and
Hamlin seemed to be the only driver with a
car strong enough to challenge the No. 88.
Hamlin won last week’s exhibition race,
but his Toyota didn’t have the help Hamlin
needed when Earnhardt was ready to make a
pass for the win. Hamlin finished fifth.

Defending Daytona 500 winner Joey
Logano was second and Ryan Blaney was
third. Blaney had early issues with a loose
wheel, but had assured himself a spot in
Sunday’s Daytona 500 based on qualifying
speed. Still, his Wood Brothers Racing
team got him back on the lead lap and he
was in position to work with Logano to
make a late run at Earnhardt.
Instead, the order didn’t change and
Blaney’s finish opened up a spot in the
Daytona 500 for another driver — Michael
McDowell, who finished 14th.
“It’s so intense. When Blaney had a problem there, we were counting on him racing
his way in,” McDowell said. “I can’t tell
you what it means to make the Daytona
500. We’re racing Sunday and I can’t wait to
get going.”
It’s the third time in seven years that
McDowell has raced his way into the 500.
He had to use a block on Cole Whitt, who
with Josh Wise was battling McDowell for
the only transfer spot out of the first qualifying race, to preserve his position. The
block led to Whitt spinning and bringing
out the only caution of the race.
Whitt and Wise both failed to make the
race.

Posey says he’s Royals extend contracts of GM, manager
committed to
saving water
By Dave Skretta

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Several times over
the past year, Ned Yost floated the possibility
of retirement when his contract to manage the
Kansas City Royals expires after the upcoming
season.
Then he realized he was having too much fun
winning.
So after general manager Dayton Moore
signed his own contract extension to remain in
charge of the World Series champions, Yost
decided to sign on for two more years. That
means the 61-year-old Yost is committed to running the Royals’ dugout through at least the
2018 season.
“Once we won), Dayton and I, we didn’t really start talking contracts until the last couple of
weeks,” Yost said Thursday at the club’s spring
training home in Surprise, Arizona.
“I’ll have to get to the point in ’18 when I’ll
have to evaluate it,” he said. “But you work so
hard as a group to develop a winner and it’s hard
to leave when they still have the ability to win.
We think we have that opportunity through the
next few years.”
Most of the Royals’ cornerstone players,
including first baseman Eric Hosmer, third
baseman Mike Moustakas and shortstop
Alcides Escobar, are signed through the 2017
season. The Royals also re-signed outfielder
Alex Gordon to a four-year deal this past offseason.
“We’ve basically got the same crew,” Yost
said. “They’re motivated, excited to get going,
but we want to win world championships for
Kansas City and this organization.”
The terms of Moore’s contract were not dis-

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz — Buster Posey would
like to clear up one thing about his property
landing on a list of excessive water users in
the drought-ravaged Bay Area: The San
Francisco Giants catcher insists he worked
with landscapers to take appropriate measures
to save water before he and his wife moved
into their suburban home in 2013.
“We take the water stuff extremely serious,”
he told the Associated Press on Thursday
before his first spring-training workout. “As
soon as we moved into our home there, our
landscapers made adjustments, like changing the
sprinkler system to drip,
trying to be more efficient. My wife and I are
very cognizant about
showers and whatnot.”
He was charged a penalty
by East Bay Municipal
Utility District, which
Buster Posey said by law it must release
the names of customers on
such lists when a public records request is
made. Posey and wife Kristen live in Lafayette
— in the East Bay hills — along with their 4year-old twins, Lee and Addison. The Poseys
haven’t been on any subsequent excessive
water use lists since that one time in
December.
They were listed for using 272 units of water
over the 59-day billing cycle.
EBMUD spokeswoman Andrea Pook said
Thursday an average single family household
uses approximately 250 gallons per day.
“The program is new. It’s a learning curve
for us, too,” Pook said by phone from the Bay
Area. “Our goal is to work with our customers
to meet the Governor’s drought restrictions.”
Billy Beane, the Oakland Athletics’ executive vice president of baseball operations, was
on the same December list for excessive water
use at his Danville home and faced a penalty.
He has since cut back on his water usage, the
team said.
In fact, of those on the excessive use list, 70
percent who were charged a penalty have since
decreased their water usage by 30 percent or
more, Pook said, noting, “That’s a lot of water
to save.”
Added Posey with a smile: “I’m glad we’re
getting rain now. ... Again, it’s something we
take seriously.”

closed. The general manager since 2006, he had
signed an extension in
November 2013 that would
have expired after this year.
“This was in the works
for a while,” Moore said as
pitchers and catchers
reported to spring trainDayton Moore ing. “Everybody understands there’s a business
side to what we do. It’s just
part of it. But Ned and I really felt it was important to
make sure all the players
were signed and taken care
of, and once that’s done,
you focus on the stability
of the leadership.”
Moore, who grew up a
Royals fan, took over a
Ned Yost
downtrodden franchise in
2006 that hadn’t had a winning season in a
dozen years. The team’s farm system was in
shambles, fan apathy was at a nadir, and the
only thing Kansas City had going for it was a
ballpark considered one of the jewels of baseball.
Slowly, Moore began to rebuild the organization through the draft and with a newfound
emphasis on international scouting. And over
the years, he stockpiled homegrown players
that have become the basis of three consecutive
winning seasons and back-to-back trips to the
World Series.
Kansas City won its first championship
since 1985 when it beat the New York Mets last
fall.
“You can’t find an individual with a stronger

work ethic or dedication to his craft,” Royals
president Dan Glass said in a statement. “He
possesses all of the qualities you look for starting with his leadership, organizational vision
and tireless dedication to the position.”
A longtime Atlanta Braves executive, Moore
has been in lockstep with Yost — himself a former Braves bench coach — since promoting
him to manager of the Royals during the 2010
season.
After getting off to a slow start, Yost has
become one of the most popular managers in
franchise history. Whereas he once used an alias
to order coffee at Starbucks because he didn’t
want anybody to give him grief, these days
Yost can’t go anywhere in public without fans
asking for a picture.
Last year, he passed Whitey Herzog to
become the winningest manager in Royals history. He got his 900th career victory on Aug.
15 and could reach 1,000 at some point this
season.
The Royals lost starter Johnny Cueto and
second baseman Ben Zobrist to free agency but
otherwise return the almost their entire roster
from last season. And with the signing of Ian
Kennedy to bolster their starting rotation, they
believe they have a chance to make another
deep playoff run.
“You know, we’re in a really peak period in
Kansas City,” Yost said. “We’ve got an outstanding organization with a great leader in
Dayton, and we’ve got great players. They’re
fun to be around. It’s something I looked at and
wanted to be part of for a couple more years.”
NOTES: The Royals agreed to minor league
contracts with infielder Clint Barmes, left-hander Brian Duensing and right-hander Ross
Ohlendorf on Thursday.

Chapman said through a translator after
Yankees pitchers and catchers reported
Thursday for spring training. “It’s something I can’t really talk about. We’ve got to
wait to see what happens.”

Hamilton never went to spring training
last year with the Los Angeles Angels when
he was coming off shoulder surgery. He was
traded to Texas at the end of last April and
made his season debut May 25.

SURPRISE, Ariz. — Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton said Thursday he is

Already in spring training with the
Rangers, a week before the first full squad
workout for the AL West champions,
Hamilton is running bases, stretching and

The 2010 AL MVP was among several

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The Colorado
Rockies have claimed catcher Tony Wolters
off waivers from the Cleveland Indians.
To make room on the 40-man roster, they

Wolters, 23, spent last season at DoubleAAkron, where he hit .209 with two homers

(49 percent) attempting to steal.
In six minor league seasons, Wolters has
a .258 batting average with 75 doubles, 15
homers, 165 RBIs and 35 stolen bases. He’s
thrown out 40 percent of runners.

Since a 3-2 loss to Mercy Jan. 26,
Duncanson has spent time — mainly by herself — on the weekends working on her game.
“I’ve been here on Saturdays (working),”
Duncanson said.
That extra work paid off Thursday against a
Notre Dame team that had finished fourth in the
WBAL’s Foothill Division.
And the Regents showed there is a definite
step up in play in the WBAL’s upper division.
Notre Dame controlled possession most of the
game — especially in the first half.
But the Crystal Springs defense was up to the
task. Despite being outshot 11-4, the
Gryphons forced nearly every Regents’ shot to
be taken from 20 yards or further away from
goal.
When the Regents tried to run at the
Gryphons defense, they held firm — especially Flynn’s two center backs, sweeper Becky
Berman and stopper Kenia French —  who
cleared balls out of danger throughout the
game. Isabel DeContreras on the left and
Sarina Deb on the right also had strong games
defensively for Crystal Springs.
“The backline has stepped up considerably,”
Flynn said.
And of course Crystal Springs goalkeeper
Prisilla Sanchez had another strong outing.
She was not quite set when Notre Dame scored
on a free kick, but late in the game, with her
team clinging to a 2-1 lead, Sanchez snatched
a cross out of the air on a Notre Dame corner
kick.

appeared in six of the Bulldogs’ seven
games this season — took the loss, allowing one run over two innings of work. His
record falls to 1-1.
CSM starting pitcher Dalton Gomez took
a no-decision through four innings of work
in the first start of his collegiate career. The
freshman left-hander made three previous
appearances this year, all in relief. He
allowed one run on two hits and departed

with the game tied 1-1, after CSM evened
the score in the bottom of the fourth on a
sacrifice fly by Anders Green.
Gavilan (6-3) took the lead back in the
sixth though. Tyler Fhorong sparked a oneout rally with a double and later scored on a
two-out RBI single by Edgar Arriola, which
proved to be the winning run.
CSM returns to action next Tuesday, hosting Marin at 2 p.m.

With the defense doing its job, the question
of the game would be if the Gryphons had
enough offense to get the result they needed.
Flynn knew without Lee in the middle to settle
things down and maintain possession, he
would have to change his approach.
He took note of Notre Dame’s penchant for
pushing everyone up high during a 1-0 nonleague loss in early January and knew that was
where the Regents would be most vulnerable.
“We knew we weren’t going to be able to
hold the ball in the midfield like we’re used to,”
Flynn said. “[The offense] had to an early ball
(over the top of the Notre Dame defense).”
Which is exactly how the Gryphons took a
1-0 lead less than five minutes into the game.
French cleared a ball out of the Gryphons’
defensive end, which sailed over Notre Dame’s
defensive line, which had pushed up past the
midfield stripe.
Guess who was waiting to chase down the
clearance? Duncanson had just her defender to
beat, which she did. Duncanson ran onto the
ball and roofed a shot into the Regents’ net for
a 1-0 lead in the fourth minute.
“Statistics show goals are scored in the first
five and last five minutes of each half,” Flynn
said. “(Scoring early) really puts pressure on
that other team.”
To which Notre Dame responded. The
Regents’ consistent pressure kept the
Gryphons on their heels and just before half,
the Regents found the equalizer. Notre Dame
earned a free kick 35 yards from goal. As the
Crystal Springs defense was still trying to get
set, Notre Dame’s Kate Fuell quickly stepped
up and punched a shot that was headed for the
upper right corner. Sanchez slid across the
goal face and got a hand on the shot, but could
not prevent the tying goal from scoring.
In the second half, Flynn changed up his

attack, positioning Tess Bosley as the target
striker, which forced Notre Dame to mark her.
That appeared to open up the offense for the
Gryphons in general, and Duncanson specifically.
“We needed someone to be up top. We need
(Duncanson) running at players, not playing
with her back to the goal,” Flynn said. “I finally got Tess up there. It opened up the midfield a
little for Meg underneath.”
Duncanson had her first attempt at the goahead goal hit the out side of the net in the
54th minute, but three minutes later, she
scored the biggest goal of her high school
career. She corralled a loose ball near midfield
and began driving at goal. She beat a pair of
defenders and broke into the box where she
chipped a shot over the charging Notre Dame
goalkeeper. A field player could not prevent
the inevitable goal and after a frantic final 20plus minutes, the Gryphons were playoff
bound.
“I’m just so happy for this team,” Flynn
said. “It just felt right today.”

Laney rallies late to top Cañada
Cañada (1-8) took a 3-3 tie into the eighth
inning but Laney (5-5) erupted for four runs
over the final two frames to top the Colts 73. Laney left fielder Trevor Greenley went 3
for 4 with three RBIs to power the Eagles’
11-hit day. The loss marks the eighth
straight for the Colts.

Menlo-Atherton 2, Woodside 0
The Bears handed the Wildcats their first loss
of the season and held them scoreless for the
first time in the regular-season finale for both
teams.
Katie Guenin gave M-A (10-2-2 PAL Bay,
12-4-2 overall) a 1-0 lead at halftime, converting an assist from Sarah McLeod.
In the second half, Talia Missan gave the
Bears some breathing room, scoring off an
assist from Josephine Cotto.
Woodside (12-1-1, 15-1-2) now finds itself
going into CCS in a bit of a slump. The
Wildcats are just 1-1-1 in their last three
games, after going 14-0-1 over the first 15
games of the season.

Sports brief
Charles Woodson hired by ESPN
BRISTOL, Conn. — Charles Woodson has a
new role in pro football: NFL analyst for ESPN.
ESPN announced Thursday that the recently
retired defensive back has been hired to work as
an analyst on Sunday NFL Countdown and
Monday Night Countdown.
The 18-year veteran retired after a final season with the Oakland Raiders. The 39-year-old
three-time All-Pro is expected to begin in new
job in July.
Woodson started and ended his career with the
Raiders. In between, he played for the Green
Bay Packers, helping them win Super Bowl
XLV. A cornerback and safety, Woodson is tied
for fifth in the league in interceptions with 65.

get a big point tonight,” Panthers coach
Gerard Gallant said.
Couture’s goal tied it 8:56 into the third.
Joe Thornton passed from behind the net to
Couture in the slot, and his shot beat
Montoya.
“It was one of those games where we really didn’t have our legs,” Couture said. “We
weren’t nearly at our best, so it was nice to
find a way to win.”
The Panthers remain five points ahead of
the Bruins in the Atlantic Division —
Boston lost 2-0 to Nashville on Thursday
night.
“Huge point for us. We’ll take it and move
forward,” Montoya said.
Jagr gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead at 2:23
of the third. Vincent Trocheck took a shot
and Jagr grabbed the rebound in the right
circle and put the puck between Jones’ pads.
The goal was Jagr’s 740th, putting him
one behind Brett Hull for third place on the
career NHL scoring list. Jagr turned 44 years
old last Monday and is only the second forward to score a goal after turning 44. The
first was Gordie Howe.
NOTES: Panthers C Brandon Pirri was
placed on injured reserve Thursday with an
ankle injury. ... Sharks C Tommy Wingels
left the game in the first period with an
unspecified injury and did not return. “We’ll
have more tomorrow but he’s probably out
for a little while,” DeBoer said after the
game.

LOS ANGELES — Camilo Villegas
hasn’t make a cut all year and has
only broken 70 one time in four previous trips to Riviera, so it was mildly surprising to see him with an 8under 63 to build a three-shot lead
Thursday in the
Northern Trust
Open.
That wasn’t
the biggest surprise.
One spot from
the bottom of
the leaderboard
was
Jordan
Camilo Villegas Spieth,
the
world’s No. 1
player who shot
an 8-over 79 on
one
of
his
favorite courses.
It was his worst
start ever as a
pro, and his
highest score
since an 80 in
Jordan Spieth the third round of
the 2014 Tour
Championship.
“In the course of a career, I imagine
it’s going to happen,” Spieth said.
“Just unfortunate when it actually
does.”
And there was one more surprise for
everyone. Riviera, which played so
fearsome during the practice rounds
under a hot sun, was softer than usual
after a steady overnight rain that
never cleared until moments before

the first round began.
Spieth said he couldn’t trust how
the course was playing. Villegas also
was stunned when he heard players
from the morning round talk about 4irons stopping on the green, instead
of taking a hard bounce.
“You don’t really shoot 8 under
around this place not playing good,”
Villegas said. “Obviously, the rain
yesterday made the golf course a lot
more accessible.”
Bubba Watson, who won at Riviera
two years ago with a 64-64 weekend,
opened with a 66 along with Chez
Reavie and Luke List.
Rory McIlroy, making his first
PGA Tour start this year and his debut
at Riviera, opened with two quick
birdies and added two more on the
front nine for a 67. He was in a large
group that included 22-year-old
Charlie Danielson, the Illinois senior who earned a spot in his first PGA
Tour event by winning a collegiate
qualifier on Monday.
“I just went out and tried to enjoy
the day,” Danielson said. “I had no
idea if I would shoot 80 or 66, so I just
went out with no expectations and it
worked out.”
Spieth didn’t have any expectations of a 79 — or worse. Still to be
determined is whether his ball moved
before hitting a chip on the ninth
green. Spieth asked rules officials to
review the video. He said he was fairly certain it didn’t move when his
club, but wanted to be sure. Adecision
was not expected until Friday morning. It would be a one-shot penalty
under Rule 18-2 if the ball did move.

No major moves on NBA trade deadline day
By Brian Mahoney
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Jeff Green could give the Clippers a better
shot in the West and Markieff Morris might
strengthen a Wizards playoff push in the
East.
Still, the possibilities were more interesting than the realities of the NBA’s trade deadline.
There were no deals involving Dwight
Howard, Kevin Love, Pau Gasol, Al Horford,
or any other All-Star caliber player whose
named was floated in recent days.
Major moves will wait for the summer,
when a soaring salary cap and a strong free
agent class could provide the fireworks that
never materialized Thursday.
Washington and most of the other teams
battling for a spot at the bottom of the
Eastern Conference race may have improved,
though the Knicks couldn’t come up with
anything.
“There’s probably, maybe two teams in the
league that feel like they don’t have to make
any improvement or adjustment. But everybody else feels like there’s areas that we can
improve our ballclub, so those are things
that we discussed,” interim coach Kurt
Rambis said shortly before the 3 p.m. EST
deadline. “The reality is all of these rumors
and all this talk that’s gone on, what 99 percent of it never is going to happen?”
All deals had to be approved by the NBA

league office, which was still completing the
process a few hours after the deadline.
Houston, Cleveland, Chicago and Atlanta
all made trades, though mostly minor ones.
Teams interested in their top players not
only had to weigh giving up assets versus
signing them in the summer, but also
whether they wanted to acquire a player who
could be a free agent and command a huge
salary when the cap increases to around $90
million in July.
Veteran players can earn 25 percent or
more of the cap as their first-year salary.
Green went from Memphis to the Clippers,
giving them another versatile forward while
Blake Griffin is sidelined. Morris, unhappy
this season in Phoenix, joins a disappointing Washington team that is 10th in the
East.
Speaking to reporters while riding a hoverboard on his way out of the Suns’ arena
Thursday, Morris expressed his thanks to
that team and said: “I’m just ready to move
on.”
A look at some of the key deals:

Clippers go Green
Doc Rivers brings in another of his former
Celtics and ships out Lance Stephenson, who
disappointed in Los Angeles just as he did in
Charlotte. The Grizzlies also acquired a future
first-round pick. But most importantly,
Rivers acquired a Green of his own to play
tion, pointing out the Kerr broke a clipboard in anger last season when the team
won 67 games and a championship.
“He has a nice long rolodex of stuff no
matter how we play,” Curry said. “That’s a
great coach. Whether it’s nitpicking or
focusing on details that might not seem
important, they are important when you’re
trying to win a championship.”
The major focus around the Warriors dur-

The Cavaliers dealt seldom-used Anderson
Varejao to Portland and brought in Channing
Frye from Orlando, giving them another
perimeter-shooting big forward like Love to
help spread the floor for LeBron James and

small-ball against Golden State and versatile
forwards Draymond Green and Andre
Iguodala.

Morris moves on
The Wizards gave up a first-round draft pick
and forwards Kris Humphries and DeJuan
Blair for Morris. Despite his outbursts in
Phoenix this season after the Suns traded his
twin brother, Marcus, to Detroit, Morris was
the Suns’ third-best scorer and should benefit
from playing with the backcourt of John
Wall and Bradley Beal.

ing the stretch run will be on their chase for
the single-season wins record of 72 set by
Chicago in 1995-96. Golden State needs to
go 24-6 to tie the Bulls’ mark.
The upcoming six-game trip will be a key
stretch to determine whether that will be
realistic. The Warriors follow that with 17
of their final 24 games at home, where they
have won 42 straight regular-season games.
The focus for the Warriors is less on the
record than on remaining ahead of San
Antonio (45-8) for the top seed in the West.
“I look at that as a byproduct,” Kerr said
of 72 wins. “If it happens, great. If it doesn’t I don’t really care. Our goal is to be the
one seed. That’s the only tangible goal we

Instead of trading point guard Jeff Teague,
who was involved in a number of potential
trade talks, the Hawks brought in a new
potential backup in a three-time trade. They
sent Shelvin Mack to Utah and Justin
Holliday to Chicago, which also got a second-round pick from the Jazz.

D-Mo in Motown
Detroit made its second deal of the week,
acquiring forward/center Donatas Motiejunas
and guard Marcus Thornton from Houston for
center Joel Anthony and a protected 2016
first-round draft pick. Motiejunas, a
Lithuanian nicknamed D-Mo, joins Tobias
Harris, acquired earlier from Orlando, in bolstering the Pistons’ frontcourt.

Palestinians kill Israeli
in West Bank supermarket
JERUSALEM — Two Palestinian teenagers wielding
knives fatally stabbed an Israeli and seriously wounded
another at a supermarket in the West Bank on Thursday
before they were shot and wounded by an Israeli bystander,
the military said.
The two Israeli victims were taken to an Israeli hospital
along with the Palestinian attackers. The Israeli military
later announced that a 21-year-old off duty soldier, Sgt.
Tuvia Yanai Weissman died of wounds sustained in the
attack.
Channel 10 TV reported that the Palestinian attackers,
teenagers from the Ramallah area, walked around the
supermarket for about 20 minutes scoping out victims
before stabbing two shoppers in the back and neck.
The station spoke with an unidentified civilian who said
he opened fire at the attackers. The civilian, who was carrying a gun, said he was inside a prayer area near the supermarket and soon after services began, he heard screaming,
went outside and shot at the attackers.

Turkey blames Kurdish
militants for Ankara car bombing
ANKARA, Turkey — Turkey on Thursday blamed Kurdish
militants at home and in neighboring Syria for a deadly
bombing in Ankara and it stepped up pressure on the U.S.
to sever ties with the Syrian Kurdish militia that has been
a key force against the Islamic State group in the complex
Syrian conflict.
The blast at rush hour Wednesday killed 28 people and
wounded dozens more in a car bombing that targeted buses
of military personnel. Ankara’s second bombing in four
months came as Turkey grappled with an array of serious
issues, including renewed fighting with Kurdish rebels,
threats from Islamic State militants and the Syria refugee
crisis.

Cameron faces off with 27 EU
leaders in ‘battle for Britain’
By Jill Lawless and Raf Cassert
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BRUSSELS — Prime Minister David
Cameron faced off Thursday against
the 27 other European Union leaders,
telling them to grant his country a new
deal to settle the festering issue of
their relationship or face a possible
divorce as soon as this summer.
Cameron said he was “battling for
Britain” at a Brussels summit — and
for a less intrusive EU that would benefit other countries, too. But French
President Francois Hollande struck a
cautionary note, warning that no individual leader should be allowed to stop
closer European cooperation.
“It’s the EU in question, not just one
country in the EU,” Hollande said as he
arrived. “I want Britain to stay in the
EU. But I hope most of all that Europe
can advance, can be stronger.”
Cameron is seeking changes to the
U.K.-EU relationship that will let him
urge Britons to vote “yes” to continued membership in a referendum that
could come as early as June.
He told his fellow leaders that he
needed a substantial deal that would be
“credible for the British people.” The
British referendum on EU membership
is bound to be hard-fought, since few
issues in Britain have as much resonance as its relationship with the EU.

summit addressing the talks about the so-called Brexit and the migrants crisis, in
Brussels, Belgium.
“The question of Britain’s place in
Europe has been allowed to fester for
too long,” Cameron said, arguing that
this was a chance to settle the issue for
a generation.
But Britain also warned it would walk
away if the deal was not good enough.
“If we can get a good deal, I will take
that deal. But I will not take a deal that
doesn’t meet what we need,” Cameron
said.
A British official said the 28 leaders’

first discussion session Thursday
ended without a breakthrough.
“I don’t think there was any sense
that gaps in key issues had narrowed,”
the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss the
closed-door talks. “There’s a lot of
hard work to do overnight.”
Talks among diplomats and lawyers to
nail down the final details of a U.K. deal
were expected to go into the early hours
Friday before a hoped-for agreement.

‘Witch’ a slow-burning

MUSEUM GOTTA SEE ‘UM
By Susan Cohn
DAILY JOURNAL SENIOR CORRESPONDENT

“IN S IGHT; INS IDE; INS IGHT”:
WORKS BY LINDA SALTER AT THE
PENINSULA MUSEUM OF ART IN
B URLINGAME. The Museum Studios
Gallery at the Peninsula Museum of Art in
Burlingame currently presents a collection
of oil and pastel portraits by Bay Area artist
Linda Salter in an exhibit titled “In Sight;
Inside; Insight.” The artist’s portraiture
methods are a blending of personal expression and traditional teachings from art
schools in Seattle, Scottsdale and the Bay
Area. Salter works primarily in oils and pastels. In this exhibit, she uses a range of
techniques including pastel pencil on sanded paper and oils of a classically limited
palette. Throughout her many years as an
executive in Bay Area community colleges,
Salter diligently carved out time to paint
portraits. Now devoting herself full time to
painting, she still considers portraiture her
first love. Salter, whose studio is directly
across the courtyard from the Peninsula
Museum of Art, said: “I enjoy painting a
variety of subjects from plein air landscapes
to classical still lifes, but I’m always drawn
back to portraiture. It’s important to me not
only to capture a likeness, but to reveal an
internal essence of the person I’m painting
— the subject’s character ... or perhaps even
her soul.” The Peninsula Museum of Art is
located at 1777 California Drive in
Burlingame, near El Camino Real and
Trousdale Avenue. Open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Wednesday through Friday. Admission is
free. Salter’s portraits are on view through
March 20. The public is invited to an
artist’s reception 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday,
Feb. 28. More information about Salter’s
work is available at www.lindasalter.com.

NO WAY! TAKE IT TO REPAIR CAFÉ

AT THE MUSEUM OF AMERICAN
HERITAGE IN PALO ALTO. What do you
do when you’ve got something you like but
it no longer works? Chances are you toss it
out. Or maybe you store it away until that
magical day when you can figure out what to
do with it. The Repair Café Palo Alto, a volunteer-run, community service, gives you
another option by encouraging the repair
and reuse of goods. Repair Cafés are free
meeting places and they’re all about repairing things (together). In the place where a

need. On clothes, furniture, bicycles, crockery, appliances, toys, etc. You’ll also find
expert volunteers, with repair skills in all
kinds of fields. If you have nothing to
repair, you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee.
Or you can lend a hand with someone else’s
repair job. You can also get inspired at the
reading table — by leafing through books
on repairs and DIY. Repair Café events will

People in the news
Sean Hayes takes on
heavenly stage role in ‘An Act of God’
LOS ANGELES — Sean Hayes, who played sidekick Jack
in TV’s “Will & Grace,” is the ultimate top banana on stage
in “An Act of God.”
Hayes has the title role in the West
Coast production of the play, a cheeky
take on the Almighty and what he really
thinks of his imperfect human charges.
“It’s smart, funny, poignant,” Hayes
said of the play by David Javerbaum, the
former head writer for “The Daily Show”
who adapted it from his book, “The Last
Testament: A Memoir by God.”
Sean Hayes
Hayes also said yes to the part because
it tested him, as did his 2010-11
Broadway role in the musical “Promises, Promises.”
“I enjoy great challenges, because it’s too easy to not
challenge yourself. It’s too easy to just sit on the couch,”
said Hayes, who’s also a busy producer (“Must See TV: An
All-Star Tribute to James Burrows,” which honors the director and airs Sunday on NBC, is among his projects).
“An Act of God” is essentially a one-man show that puts
the critically praised Hayes center stage for 90 minutes, with
occasional support from a pair of angels.
“The memorization, the interpretation, the freshness that
you have to discover every night to do it” are demanding,
Hayes said, adding, “and I love it.”

drawing the curious gaze of her
younger brother, Caleb (Harvey
Scrimshaw). Could she be a witch?
The spell is cast over the viewer,
too, as the authentically resurrected
world of “The Witch” transports to a
time of suffocating fear, born out of a
harsh new land and hardened religious
fervor. Taking place decades before the
Salem witch trials, “The Witch” is a
kind of horror chamber piece, a
stripped-bare prequel to the forces that
propel Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible”
and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The
Scarlet Letter.”
The characters speak in the formal
diction of the period — lots of “thees”
and such. It’s a kind of time travel, for
those looking for a far grimmer trip to
colonial America than New England
tourist attractions afford. It is, to say
the least, not a barrel of laughs.
But what makes “The Witch” more
than a mere museum reclamation project is Taylor-Joy. The movie is in

many ways seen through Thomasin,
who stands apart from her devote family. Wide-eyed and rebellious, she more
resembles a girl of today.
Whether she is, in fact, a witch
remains in suspense. But we witness
how Puritan paranoia and misogyny
turns a pretty young woman like
Thomasin into a fearsome seductress
in the eyes of her family.
When the combustible “The Witch”
finally lets itself ablaze, the brutal and
surprisingly sober finale is also — and
more thrillingly — Thomasin’s awakening. Drawn by the lure to break free
of her upbringing, to “live deliciously,” she turns out to be something
scarier than the Puritans could fathom:
a teenager.
“The Witch,” an A24 release, is rated
R by the Motion Picture Association
of America for “disturbing violent
content and graphic nudity.” Running
time: 92 minutes. Three stars out of
four.

Bill Cosby arrives at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Penn.

Bill Cosby demands money back
from accuser in sex assault case
By Maryclaire Dale
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PHILADELPHIA — Bill Cosby is
demanding that the accuser in his criminal case repay a confidential sexabuse settlement because she cooperated with police who reopened the case
and arrested him last year.
Cosby filed a sealed breach-of-contract lawsuit this month that said the
settlement barred Andrea Constand
from “voluntarily” discussing the case
with law enforcement.
The suit said Constand had no legal
duty to cooperate with Pennsylvania
authorities because she lives in
Canada. The interviews she and her
mother gave to investigators last year
were therefore “voluntary” and violated the settlement terms, the suit said.
“Despite being under no legal obligation to discuss any aspects of the
events and allegations ... and despite
being expressly prohibited from dis-

closing such information to anyone,
Andrea Constand
volunteered to participate and disclosed such information to the district attorney and
others, ” Cosby’s
lawyers wrote in a
Andrea
redacted suit filed
Constand
Thursday.
Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison
if convicted of sexually assaulting
Constand at his suburban Philadelphia
home in 2004. He has not yet entered a
plea, but his lawyers have vowed to
clear his name. Constand, 43, is now a
massage therapist in Toronto.
His lawsuit against her also names
her mother and lawyers as defendants
because they also cooperated with
Montgomery County authorities last
year. The suit accuses them of inviting
media coverage or making public

statements about the case.
Constand’s lawyers have said the
agreement has a provision that allows
them to speak to law enforcement
about the case. Any such prohibition
would amount to obstruction on the
part of the lawyers who drafted the document, lawyer Dolores Troiani testified this month, when Cosby first
appeared in court for a pretrial hearing
in the criminal case.
Cosby, 78, filed the sealed breachof-contract suit Feb. 1, a day before
that hearing. His lawyers were then
ordered to file the redacted version of
the suit.
The lawsuit is the actor’s latest counterattack against complaints from
dozens of women that he drugged and
molested them. He has filed defamation suits against accusers in
Springfield, Massachusetts, and Los
Angeles and through lawyers has
called at least some of the accusations
“discredited.”

LAS VEGAS — Move over, Kim Kardashian.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s mobile game strutted to the
top spot on Apple’s app store when the
Glu Mobile title premiered Wednesday.
The game starring the Kardashian halfsisters is a spin-off of the popular “Kim
Kardashian: Hollywood” game released
in 2014.
“There does seem to be a unique affinity for fans of the Kardashian-Jenners to
like narrative role-playing games,” said
Kendall Jenner Glu President and CEO Niccolo de Masi
during an interview at the D. I. C. E.
Summit.
While the Jenner sisters’ game maintains the same cartoony aesthetic of the
Kardashian game, the fashion-focused
“Kendall & Kylie” is intended to be
played in portrait mode on smartphones
and tablets instead of landscape mode
like “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.”
The games are currently rewarding
Kylie Jenner gamers who play both titles in a special
“krossover” event. De Masi is optimistic that “Kendall & Kylie” will achieve similar success
as “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” which reportedly earned
$200 million last year.
“I think it could do anywhere from half or double to what
Kim achieved, ” said de Masi, who presented a talk
Wednesday morning about celebrity social media followers
at the Academy of Interactive Arts and Science’s 15th annual D.I.C.E. Summit.
Despite the Kardashians’ mobile triumph, Katy Perry didn’t similarly blast off last year with her Glu game, “Katy
Perry Pop.”

three years later than the previous plan that

The shift allows officials to put off the

project in the years since 2008, when voters approved selling nearly $10 billion in
bonds for a high-speed rail network linking
Northern and Southern California. The last
business plan, approved in 2014, called for
the entire 520-mile system to be finished
in 2028 at a cost of $68 billion.
Richard said Thursday that the new plan
lowers the projected cost to $64 billion,
and it calls for completion in 2029.
Officials did not provide a copy of the
new plan Thursday, saying it was not ready.
The reversal could cause other political
problems. Some Southern California
Democrats agreed to give the bullet train a
quarter of future revenues from the state’s
pollution fees in exchange for additional
spending in Southern California.
Among them was Senate President Pro
Tem Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, who
said in a statement Thursday that he supports the new plan because it makes sense
to build “high-speed rail first where infrastructure already exists.”
But incoming Speaker Anthony Rendon,
D-Paramount, said he was concerned. “This
project is meant to connect the south to the
north — neglecting the south would be
unacceptable,” Rendon said in a statement.
Jeff Morales, CEO of the California

High-Speed Rail Authority, said the
announcement is the first time officials are
laying out a plan to build and operate a segment that does not rely on new money.
But the new plan also calls for state officials to ask the federal government for
another $2.9 billion to extend high-speed
tracks 20 miles south into Bakersfield and
50 miles north into San Francisco.
Republicans who control Congress have
not only been unwilling to offer further
high-speed rail funding, they have sought
repeatedly to repeal about $3 billion in federal stimulus funding allocated for the project by President Barack Obama’s administration.
Lawmakers who have been critical of the
project already were skeptical.
George Runner, a Republican member of
the state Board of Equalization, said the
decision to change course only delays the
authority’s problems.
“The High-Speed Rail Authority is desperate and wants to lay as much track as
possible so that it becomes more difficult
to stop the project,” he said in a statement.
“The Tehachapi Mountains won’t disappear
because the authority decided to change
plans.”
Voters who approved selling bonds for

high-speed rail were told the nation’s first
high-speed trains would whisk travelers
from San Francisco to Los Angeles in two
hours and 40 minutes, and the system would
operate without a government subsidy. It
was also pitched as a stand-alone system
that would not have to share tracks with
other rail lines, which has led to legal challenges after high-speed rail officials adopted a plan that blends high-speed service
with commuter rail.
Nadia Naik, one of the founders of a San
Francisco Bay Area group called
Californians Advocating Responsible Rail
Design, was skeptical that federal lawmakers will be willing to commit another $2.9
billion just to complete the first useable
route.
“What businessperson wants to pay the
extra $2. 9 billion to get from San
Francisco to Bakersfield? No offense to
Bakersfield,” Naik said.
She also criticized the authority for not
debating the policy changes in the business plan at a public board meeting.
High-speed rail officials said there is a
60-day public comment period, after which
the board will consider the plan.
Richard and Morales said ticket prices
remain unchanged from previous estimates.

roughly 30 years ago, and has been on the
council for nearly two decades.
Beyond her time on the council, she has
an extensive track record of public service,
and was introduced to life in elected office
by working as an aide to Quentin Kopp
when he was a state senator, and U.S. Rep.
Anna Eshoo when she was a county supervisor.
Instilled in her at a young age by her parents was the importance of taking action
rather than sitting idle, said Matsumoto,
which has informed her life’s work.
“My mother and father taught me, rather
than complain, the only way you can make
it better is to help make the change,” she
said.
Yet despite the force of the message of her
family’s experience, Matsumoto said she
still feels timid to share her story publicly.

“It’s hard for me,” she said. “I’m bearing
my soul.”
But because the story is so personal,
Matsumoto is hopeful it will be more powerful, and inspiring to others who may be
reluctant to share their experiences.
She said overcoming some social hurdles
in Japanese culture which discourage
activism and public outcry was integral in
former President Ronald Reagan signing
the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 which
offered $20,000 in reparations and a formal
apology for the internment of American citizens.
“By virtue we were brought up to be seen
and not heard, do your work and do not call
attention to yourselves,” Matsumoto said.
“Then people who were not political at all
fought for redress.”
In her own political career, Matsumoto

was the second woman ever elected to the
South San Francisco City Council, and the
first Asian-American ever elected to the
same post.
She said she hopes her history of advocacy, which includes serving as the interim
direction of the Japanese-American
Citizens League, combined with the experience of her family, inspires others to take
action against perceived instances of injustice.
“Hopefully people will speak up,” she
said. “A greater awareness, understanding
and compassion is what I’m hoping to
achieve.”
Matsumoto will speak 6 p.m., Friday,
Feb. 19, in the Municipal Services
Building, 33 Arroyo Drive. Visit

Angelina Jolie returning
to Cambodia as director
By Jocelyn Gecker
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BATTAMBANG,
Cambodia —
Between bites of spicy Cambodian
curry and fried fish with rice, Angelina
Jolie Pitt explains how this tiny country with a tumultuous past changed the
course of her life.
She first visited Cambodia 16 years
ago to portray “Lara Croft: Tomb
Raider” — the gun-toting, bungeejumping, supremely toned action hero
that made her a star. Soon after, she
adopted her first child from a
Cambodian orphanage and returned
again and again on humanitarian missions. Now, she’s back for another
movie but this time as a director, and
the subject matter is a far cry from Lara
Croft.
“First They Killed My Father,” is
based on a Khmer Rouge memoir written by survivor Loung Ung that
recounts the 1970s Cambodian genocide from a child’s perspective. The
film, which she is directing and cowrote with Ung for Netflix, is in
Khmer, with an all-Cambodian cast
and according to Jolie Pitt “the most
important” movie of her career.
During a break from filming, she
talked to the Associated Press about
how, more than ever, she feels a satisfying symbiosis between her life and
work.
In person, Jolie Pitt is engaging and
down-to-earth, dressed in a T-shirt and

APPLE
Continued from page 1
lem could grow worse as more criminals figure out how well the devices
keep secrets.
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus
R. Vance Jr. said at a news conference
that investigators cannot access 175
Apple devices sitting in his cybercrime lab because of encryption
embedded in the company’s latest
operating systems.
“They’re warrant proof,” he said,
adding that the inability to peer inside
the devices was especially problematic
because so much evidence once stored
in file cabinets, on paper, and in
vaults, is now only on criminals’
smartphones.
Apple has marketed its encryption
data as an important privacy tool, and
many privacy advocates have praised
the company, saying that if it opened

long black skirt,
her hair pulled into
a casual bun. She
goes out of her way
to play down her
celebrity, hopping
into the back of an
SUV and squeezing
into the middle seat
beside a reporter for
Angelina Jolie a short drive from
the set to the crew’s
outdoor lunch tents. She is relaxed and
articulate as the conversation veers
from acting and directing, to history,
humanitarian work, motherhood and
her special relationship to Cambodia.
“When I first came to Cambodia, it
changed me. It changed my perspective. I realized there was so much
about history that I had not been
taught in school, and so much about
life that I needed to understand, and I
was very humbled by it,” said the 40year-old Jolie Pitt, who grew up in Los
Angeles where she felt “a real emptiness.”
She was struck by the graciousness
and warmth of Cambodian people,
despite the tragedy that left an estimated 2 million people dead. While
shooting Lara Croft in 2000, some
scenes required sidestepping land
mines, she said, which made her aware
of the dangers refugees face in countries ravaged by war. “That trip triggered my realization of how little I
knew and the beginning of my search

for that knowledge.”
It prompted her to contact the U.N.
High Commissioner for Refugees to
learn about the agency’s work before
joining as a goodwill ambassador in
2001. She was then given an expanded role as Special Envoy in 2012.
It was during an early trip back to
Cambodia with the U.N. that Jolie had
another epiphany — this time about
motherhood.
“It’s strange, I never wanted to have
a baby. I never wanted to be pregnant.
I never babysat. I never thought of
myself as a mother, ” Jolie, now
famously a mother of six, says with a
laugh. But while playing with children at a Cambodian school, “it was
suddenly very clear to me that my son
was in the country, somewhere.”
She adopted Maddox in 2002, and a
year later opened a foundation in his
name in northwestern Battambang
province, which helps fund health
care, education and conservation projects in rural Cambodia.
Maddox is now 14 and sporting
what his mom calls “a blonde stripe”
— a shaggy mohawk with the top dyed
blonde. He joined her in Cambodia to
help behind the scenes for the project
that she sees as a unique merger of her
film work and family with humanitarian interests.
“For me, this is the moment, where
finally my life is kind of in line, and I
feel I’m finally where I should be,”
Jolie Pitt said.

its devices to government surveillance
that ability to spy on users could be
abused in places with authoritarian
regimes.
The Cupertino-based company is
currently fighting a federal magistrate’s order to help the FBI hack into
an iPhone used by a gunman in
December’s mass shooting in San
Bernardino. An Apple spokesman did
not immediately return a call Thursday
for comment on the concerns of New
York City authorities.
Vance didn’t specify which cases
were being hindered. But Police
Commissioner William Bratton said a
phone seized in the investigation of
the shooting of two police officers in
the Bronx last month is among those
detectives can’t crack. It was displayed Thursday alongside other
phones, iPads and tablets similar to
600 devices the prosecutor’s team
tested, of which the 175 proved inaccessible.
Bratton said criminals are increasingly aware of the protection offered

by their devices. He said a prisoner in
a city jail was recently recorded saying
in a phone call that iPhone encryption
was “another gift from God.”
Vance said investigators have relied
on phone data to investigate killings,
child pornography, robbery and identity theft. He said that might include
checking a suspect’s contact list to get
the names of witnesses or conspirators, or viewing incriminating videos
and photographs.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has warned
that creating software allowing the
FBI to unlock the San Bernardino suspect’s phone could make millions of
other phones vulnerable to hackers
and criminals.
Cook said that if Apple were forced
by the courts to “hack our own users,”
the government could order the company to build surveillance software to
intercept all sorts of messages,
“access your health records or financial data, track your location, or even
access your phone’s microphone or
camera without your knowledge.”

Pope Francis suggests
contraception can be
condoned in Zika crisis
By Nicole Winfield
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE — Pope Francis has suggested that women threatened with the Zika virus could use
artificial contraception, saying there’s a clear moral difference between aborting a fetus and preventing a pregnancy.
Francis was asked Wednesday en route home from Mexico
if abortion or birth control could be considered a “lesser
evil,” when confronting the Zika crisis in Brazil, where
some babies have been born with abnormally small heads
to Zika-infected mothers.
The World Health Organization has declared a global
health emergency over the Zika virus and its suspected
links to birth defects. The virus has been reported in at least
34 countries, many of them in Central and Latin America.
WHO and the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention have advised pregnant women to consider delaying travel to Zika-infected countries.
The explosion of Zika cases has prompted some governments in Latin America to urge women to avoid getting
pregnant and has fueled calls from abortion rights groups to
loosen the strict anti-abortion laws in the overwhelmingly
Catholic region.
But Francis excluded abortion absolutely from the debate.
“Abortion isn’t a lesser evil, it’s a crime,” he told
reporters. “Taking one life to save another, that’s what the
Mafia does. It’s a crime. It’s an absolute evil.”
Francis, however, drew a parallel to the decision taken by
Pope Paul VI in the 1960s to approve giving nuns in
Belgian Congo artificial contraception to prevent pregnancies because they were being systematically raped.
Abortion “is an evil in and of itself, but it is not a religious evil at its root, no? It’s a human evil,” he said. “On
the other hand, avoiding pregnancy is not an absolute evil.
In certain cases, as in this one (Zika), such as the one I mentioned of Blessed Paul VI, it was clear.”
Francis has tended to downplay the fraught moral handwringing over sexual ethics that preoccupied his predecessors, John Paul II and Benedict XVI. He has said the church
shouldn’t be the “obsessed” with such issues.

Around the world
Another faction quits
Ukraine’s governing coalition
MINSK, Belarus — Ukraine sank deeper into political turmoil Thursday as the governing coalition lost its majority
in parliament after a second faction bailed out.
The move by Samopomich (Self Help), which has 26
seats in the 450-seat parliament, leaves the coalition partners with 217 votes. Former Prime Minister Yulia
Tymoshenko’s faction withdrew from the coalition a day
earlier.
The failure to create a new majority coalition may lead to
early parliamentary elections, something President Petro
Poroshenko has sought to avoid, fearing it could further
destabilize the nation.
The two factions remaining in the coalition are led by
Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. They
have been uneasy partners, with members of Yatsenyuk’s
and Poroshenko’s blocs engaging in fierce spats which
have strained public patience and eroded the confidence of
the West.
Some respected reformers have resigned recently, citing
their disenchantment with the government’s cronyism and
corruption.

Pope vs. Trump
‘Not Christian’ to address illegal immigration by building wall
By Nicole Winfield and Julie Pace
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE —
Thrusting himself into the heated
American presidential campaign,
Pope Francis declared Thursday that
Donald Trump is “not Christian” if he
wants to address illegal immigration
only by building a wall along the
U.S.-Mexico border.
Trump fired back ferociously, saying it was “disgraceful” for a religious leader to question a person’s
faith.
The rare back-and-forth between
pontiff and presidential candidate was
the latest astonishing development
in an American election already
roiled by Trump’s free-wheeling rhetoric and controversial policy proposals, particularly on immigration. It
also underscored the popular pope’s
willingness to needle U. S. politicians on hot-button issues.
Francis’ comments came hours after
he concluded a visit to Mexico, where
he prayed at the border for people
who died trying to reach the U.S.
While speaking to reporters on the
papal plane, he was asked what he
thought of Trump’s campaign pledge
to build a wall along the entire length
of the border and expel millions of
people in the U.S. illegally.
“A person who thinks only about
building walls, wherever they may
be, and not building bridges, is not
Christian, ” he said. While Francis
said he would “give the benefit of the
doubt” because he had not heard

REUTERS

Donald Trump speaks at a rally at the Sumter Civic Center in Sumter, S.C.
Trump’s border plans independently,
he added, “I say only that this man is
not a Christian if he has said things
like that.”
Trump, a Presbyterian and the
front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, responded within minutes.
“For a religious leader to question a
person’s faith is disgraceful,” he said
at a campaign stop in South
Carolina, which holds a key primary
on Saturday. “I am proud to be a
Christian, and as president I will not
allow Christianity to be consistently
attacked and weakened.”
Trump also raised the prospect of
the Islamic State extremist group
attacking the Vatican, saying that if
that happened, “the pope would have
only wished and prayed that Donald

Trump would have been president
because this would not have happened.”
Francis, the first pope from Latin
America, urged Congress during his
visit to Washington last year to
respond to immigrants “in a way
which is always humane, just and fraternal.” He irked Republicans on the
same trip with his forceful call for
international action to address climate change.
Immigration is among the most contentious issues in American politics.
Republicans have moved toward hardline positions that emphasize law
enforcement and border security,
blocking comprehensive legislation
in 2013 that would have included a
path to citizenship for many of the 11
million people in the U.S. illegally.
