“Fishing in the City.” Held at Lake Elizabeth, this event gives kids ages 3-16 a chance to learn the fundamentals of fishing and practice their newfound knowledge on the spot. High school volunteers, city employees, and members of

Dawn Breakers Lions Club will be instructing and aiding young “fisherpeople” through two morning sessions beginning at 8 a.m. on Saturday, March 19. Escorts take groups of five to ten kids through learning stations where they receive in-

struction in knots, rigging, casting, safety, ethics and environment. Once they have visited all stations, kids are given a loaner pole and tackle box to put their skills to the test. “Fishing in the City” encourages kids to get involved in

Utility crews before Calif. blast: ‘We’re screwed’ BY GARANCE BURKE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN FRANCISCO (AP), Mar 08 - Minutes before eight people died in a California pipeline explosion, utility crews scrambled to stop gas pressure surges they feared would cause a “major, major problem,” new call logs released by the federal government show. Operators knew as much as half an hour before the Sept. 9 blast that a botched repair job in a Milpitas control station was letting natural gas flow unabated but were powerless to fix the problem remotely, according to Pacific Gas & Electric Co. records. The National Transportation Safety Board is still investigating what caused the explosion that employees called a “living nightmare” later that night. Eight people died, dozens were injured and 55 homes were left uninhabitable after a giant, gas-fueled fireball tore through the suburban neighborhood. The call logs - among the documents released by the NTSB last week - reflect the frantic, chaotic scene that evening as workers tried to pinpoint what was causing the problem on its high-pressure transmission lines. Shortly before the blast, one operator said, “We’re screwed, we’re screwed,” according to the logs. The utility did not immediately provide comment Tuesday.

t’s hard to believe it is March already, isn’t it? Spring will soon be upon us, with everything that goes with it—sunshine, clear skies and more daylight hours. Spring often inspires people to lighten things up at home and make some changes to their decor. These decorating tips will help you achieve a fresh look for the season. • All of that sunshine can make you notice cobwebs and dust you didn’t even know you had, so the first thing would be to do some spring cleaning. Clean the dust off ceiling fan blades, baseboards, window blinds and the tops of bookcases and refrigerators. Does your door and window trim need a paint touch up? How about your walls? Pay special attention to high traffic areas like the entry and hallways. There’s nothing

Page 5

like a fresh coat of paint to spruce things up. • To let in maximum light, now is also the time to have those windows cleaned. Don’t forget about cleaning light fixtures globes and light bulbs can collect dust too. • If you have heavy draperies, remove them temporarily, leaving just the sheers at the windows. This will give your living room an airy feeling. As the weather turns chilly again, the draperies will bring a cozy, warm feeling back into your room. • Have you noticed the beautiful new colors this spring? Clean, crisp greens, blues, pinks and corals are everywhere. Pantone’s color of the year for 2011 is Honeysuckle—a lovely, cheerful mix of pink and orange tones. If they blend suc-

cessfully with your existing décor, add these colors to your home in the form of dishes, kitchen or bath towels, throw pillows, candles or vases. • Natural elements are always welcome accessories, no matter the season. For spring, fill clear glass vases, bowls or hurricanes with grasses, reeds, pebbles, or shells. Fresh flowers look beautiful anywhere, but are especially appealing in your kitchen, entry and bathroom. One client of mine keeps tiny bud vases filled with colorful flowers on her bathroom counters, window sills and night stands. Create a simple and elegant dining room centerpiece by floating flowers in three shallow glass bowls and lining them up on your table. • White dishes are a very versatile kitchen accessory. Everyone

should have a set. They can be dressed up with white linens and crystal for elegant dinner parties, or dressed down with colorful linens, glasses and flatware for casual get-togethers. I love to pair white dinner plates with colorful salad plates and bowls. Mix and match the colors for a casual, playful look. • Bathrooms are fun to change with the seasons. Because they are usually small, it is not difficult or expensive to change towels, artwork and accessories. To create a light, bright, spalike feeling for spring, go with an all-white look. Treat yourself to fluffy white towels and bath rugs and a white terry cloth or waffle weave shower curtain. Add some natural elements like a glass container of shells or sea sponges, and hang large seascape photograph on the walls. Transfer shampoo and

In spite of poor weather, over 250 participants made the Fremont Adult School’s first Career and Community Resource Fair a success. The vision and hard work demonstrated by the Fremont Chamber of Commerce staff, especially Nina Moore and K.K. Kaneshiro made this event possible. Additionally, extra-special thanks go to Fremont Adult School personnel and staff including: Angelyn Kiefer for coordinating and facilitating food and beverages; Susan Anderson, Monique Edwards, Sandy Gonzales and Yelena Zimon for being Adult School table representatives, and ESL instructor Lisa Braley and her wonderful students for braving the cold

windy weather to serve as volunteer guides, helping participants find their way around the school’s campus! Over twenty-three community service, educational and employing agencies were present to share vital information and take applications. The quality of the workshops and counseling sessions that were provided was excellent. A participant commented, “This is easily the best resume counseling I’ve received. They told me exactly what I needed to do. Now I feel more confident about the success of my next job application.” For more information contact the Fremont Adult School at (510) 793-6465.

SUBMITTED BY KELLY GRANT Love was “in the air” at Humane Society Silicon Valley’s (HSSV) Valentine Adopt-athon on Saturday, February 12th at their Animal Community Center (ACC) in Milpitas and satellite adoption centers at PETCO Saratoga and PETCO Sunnyvale. HSSV adoption counselors and volunteer pet socializers helped dozens of adopters find their new “true love.” Together, 30 pets found their “forever homes.” The love spilled over Sunday and Monday too, with over a dozen more adoptions! With over 900 visitors to the Milpitas site alone, pet lovers were bound to find someone to love! Adorable dogs from their Foster Care group greeted visitors at the front entrance, sporting heart-studded bandannas, fuzzy red cupid wings, and hot pink mini-skirts. Three of these little “love devils” went home that day! Cat lovers were treated to a special Valentine “Name your Adoption Fee” promotion for adult cats six months or older. Also participating in the offer were Bay Area rescue groups Itty Bitty Orphan Kitty Rescue, Unconditional Love Animal Rescue, and Nike Animal Rescue Foundation. Pet lovers of all ages also joined in our Youth Advisory Board’s “Giving Tree,” hanging nearly 60 paper leaves with heart-felt messages about how their pets have changed their lives.

outdoor activities and enjoy time with family and friends. “We provide them the opportunity where they might not necessarily go out and do it on their own,” says Park Ranger Jeff Howard. The event returned last year after a 10 year hiatus to great response. Over 150 kids participated with more on a waiting list. This year space has been expanded to accommodate 200 kids with one a very noticeable addition: fish! Due to a last minute stocking prohibition by the Department of Fish and Game last year, organizers had to make do without enhancing the lake fish population. But this time a netted area of the lake will be stocked with 500 pounds of catfish. While fish inhabit the lake, the additional stock within a sequestered area greatly increases the kids’ chances of experiencing that exciting tug on the line. An additional 500 pounds of catfish will be released outside the net. Catch and release is suggested, but young fishers can keep their trophy if they wish;

catch and keep will be limited to one or two fish depending on fishing success. “Fishing in the City” is a statewide program through the California Department of Fish and Game established in 1993 to spread the joy of fishing and create fishing opportunities closer to home for those in a more urban setting. Several local cities participate in the program, including Newark, Milpitas, San Jose, Campbell and Vallejo, with some offering the event multiple times a year. Milpitas had their first event at Sandy Wool Lake in February and is offering another round May 1st. “I would love to expand it,” says Howard of Fremont’s program, but for now is just happy that the event is back. As a souvenir of their day and encouragement to come out again, participants will receive a free starter tackle box including two or three hooks, a lure, bobber, weights, and tackle. “We’re teaching them something they can use for the rest of their life,” says Howard. And whether the event inspires a new generation of fish-

ermen or renews interest in adults, many nearby bodies of water are available to continue the joy of fishing. In addition to Fremont’s Lake Elizabeth, fishing is available at Lakeshore Park in Newark, Shinn Pond near Niles, Quarry Lakes in Fremont, Lake Chabot one mile east of San Leandro, Cull Canyon Lake and Don Castro Reservoir in Castro Valley, Calaveras Reservoir east of Milpitas, San Antonio Reservoir east of Sunol, and Lake Merritt and Channel in Oakland. Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge offers salt water fishing opportunities. “Fishing in the City” is a great opportunity to expand horizons and learn something new; the best part of all being the quality time together for parents and kids, creating special memories that will last long after the fish stop biting.

DIRECTOR RICHARD SANTOS SANTA CLARA VALLEY WATER DISTRICT

H

elp keep San Jose beautiful by joining me on March 19 for the Great American Litter Pick Up Day! By taking a little time out this day to volunteer, you can make a big difference in your community. Plastic bottles and bags, fast food packaging, cigarette butts and other litter along Santa Clara County’s roadsides is not only awful to look at, it’s also a major threat to our local creeks and streams. During the rainy season, this litter is swept off the roadways and into storm drains that flow directly to our local waterways. This threatens local fish and wildlife and decreases the quality of our water. Along with the threat to the environment, the accumulation of litter with broken tree limbs and erosion in local creeks and streams leads to a decrease in flood protection. This is why I make it a point to raise awareness about the harmful effects of litter and take time to represent the Santa Clara Valley Water District on the Silicon Valley Anti Litter Campaign Commit-

tee (“the Committee”). While San Jose’s Great American Litter Pick Up Day began in 2003, it was adopted by the Committee in 2008 with the goal of increasing yearly participation of Santa Clara County cities, the number of volunteers and the amount of garbage and recyclable bags picked up. Last year a total of 2,257 volunteers picked up more than 1,400 bags and almost 200 recyclables. This year, we’re hoping for even better numbers. In addition to important donations, this annual event is largely funded by the Anti Graffiti and Litter Program. This program has been a successful collaborative ef-

fort among key partners including: the city of San Jose, Santa Clara Valley Water District, the Valley Transportation Agency, Santa Clara County and many others, including cities, local agencies, neighborhood associations, schools, community organizations and businesses. The Great American Litter Pick Up Day will take place on March 19, from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. after which each Council District Litter Pick Up location will host a volunteer celebration to thank all collaborating agencies and volunteers for their participation. Lunch will be free for volunteers. The event is part of a nationwide movement in connection with Earth Day. For information about how to volunteer and for pick up locations call (408) 2773208. To learn more about other ways Santa Clara Valley Water District is working to keep our waterways clean, visit www.valleywater.org. As always, as your District 3 representative for the northern areas of Sunnyvale and Santa Clara; Alviso; Milpitas; and the north San Jose and Berryessa communities, I am available for questions or comments. Feel free to contact me at (408) 234-7707. Great American Litter Pick Up Day Saturday, March 19 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Call for locations (408) 277-3208

Police: Drunken US burglar gets stuck inside house AP WIRE SERVICE WILMINGTON, Delaware (AP), Jan 06 - Authorities in Delaware say a man broke into a house, got drunk and couldn’t make his way back outside - so he called police for help. Police say 44-year-old John Finch was trapped in the home in part because he’d broken into it before, back in April. That led the homeowner to change the

locks so that a key was required - even inside. Police say no one was home when Finch broke in again, through a rear window. He stayed for a few days, drinking five bottles of liquor. He was too drunk to climb back out of the window, however, and called police, who arrested him. Finch faces charges in both break-ins but has yet to make a court appearance. There was no indication Finch has retained an attorney.

Waste diversion project at Fremont Gurdwara SUBMITTED BY SARIKA RATHI

F

remont Gurdwara Sahib is open seven days a week and holds daily programs for local Sikhs and visitors to pray and seek blessings. At Gurdwara, vegetarian meals are prepared for over 2,000 people weekly. As a result, a lot of food scrap is generated. It is estimated that more than 400 pounds of food scrap is generated each week. Dr. Sarika Rathi, Master Composter, identified the opportunity to convert all food scrap into compost. She received funding from Altamont Education Advisory Board to set up a vermicomposting system at Fremont Gurdwara to divert organic waste from the landfill. Previous Gurdwara management committee president Harjot Singh Khalsa and current Gurdwara treasurer Jaswinder Gill have been instrumental in beginning this project, which was kick-started in September 2010. Since then, with the help of volunteers and the management committee, we are diverting organic waste from the landfill. A number of

training workshops are conducted to educate management and volunteers on how to take care of the system. This project has generated a lot of interest. A local worm farm has shown interest in letting us use their new system for speeding up worm composting. The city of Fremont has also shown interest in this project. The current plan is to move the vermicomposting system to a bigger space so that it is easier to feed worms and try out the new system which is offered to us. With the help of the management committee, we are also planning to conduct further training workshops for volunteers

and school children to educate them on the importance of composting valuable organic waste. Currently, Gurdwara is spending close to $2,000 on their garbage bill every month. If we can compost all food scrap generated at Gurdwara, it will divert 20,800 pounds of waste from the landfill and greatly reduce the garbage bill for Gurdwara. With support from the management committee and volunteers we can achieve the goal of Zero Waste at Fremont Gurdwara. For more information please write to Sarika Rathi at rathi_sarika@yahoo.com.

BY PETE YOST ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON (AP), Mar 08 - Mary L. Smith would have been the top enforcer of the nation’s tax laws, the highest Justice Department position ever attained by a Native American. But in a two-year saga that is pure Washington, the leadership post she was to occupy remains vacant. So the Justice Department’s tax enforcement team heads into a third-straight federal tax-filing season without a chief chosen by the president and confirmed by the Senate. And the Obama White House is still hunting for a new nominee. Though far less visible than, say, the chief of the department’s criminal division, the assistant attorney general who heads the tax division commands nearly 400 lawyers, manages an annual budget of more than $100 million, and supervises thousands of court cases against taxpayers large and small who run afoul of tax laws. Twice nominated by President Barack Obama and twice done in by Senate Republicans who called her unqualified, Smith is serving elsewhere - as senior counsel to the assistant attorney general for the civil division, Tony West. At the tax division, the position for which Smith was nominated has been filled on an interim basis by John DiCicco, a career department lawyer. DiCicco has become one of those rare federal officials who serve so long in an acting capacity - more than two years in his case that they bump up against a little-known time limit set by the Fedcontinued on page 35

M

y very dedicated Canadian husband works for a Swedish company in San Jose that allows him to travel to different parts of the country and world. I am constantly encouraging him to venture places for career advancement and higher business knowledge. His most recent trip was to Bangalore, India for seven days. I have been dreaming of visiting India since my upcoming book’s premise is based on arranged marriages and going there would have helped me see firsthand how people live, and how they treat each other. Unfortunately, I was not able to accompany him, but I made sure to say, with a melodious swing in my voice, “You better bring me something nice…” At that point, I did not own anything made in India, so having something brought to me that was made there was going to be a joyful treat. A week passed and he returned during my participation at a writer’s conference in San Francisco. I asked him to stay with me at the Mark Hopkins Hotel where the meetings were being held, and as soon as I got a break, I went upstairs to greet him. Was I happy to see him! After hugs and kisses, he opened his luggage and handed me a box of 40 individually wrapped chocolates made in Dubai, where he had to stop to make a flight connection. They were absolutely de-

licious and lasted merely hours in our hands. While eating a few of them, I Googled Dubai International Airport and was amazed at its interior, decorated with very tall palm trees, and a variety of duty free shops. He also brought a Dubai tourist book with beautiful pictures. He then handed me a beautifully embroidered pale green Indian camisole (Punjabi) with matching silk pants. I didn’t know where I would wear it, but it is good to own a set since Indians are a large population where we live and I could perhaps wear it during one of their festivals. He handed me a yellow cloth color box containing a jeweled antique brass camel walking along its master as if going to a camel show. Reminded me of when I watched a National Geographic television program depicting ornate camel events. I loved it instantly. He brought other trinkets to give away as gifts, and the required magazines and newspapers I always ask him to bring from his travels, since I’m extremely curious about other countries’ local news and do not want to rely solely on American journalists or the B.B.C. The 21 inch Kashmir blue sapphire bead necklace he also gave me will look really good with my black dress when I take him out to dinner next week as a thank you. Over the years, I have been given gifts from several countries, the most bizarre being from Kenya; a hair bracelet, believe it

or not, made out of Elephant tail hairs, to the most outstanding one; a 22 carat gold intricate necklace and bracelets from Saudi Arabia. There are some things you just cannot buy in America, as jewelry stores mainly buy in bulk and you can easily see the quality differences between an item picked out individually and selecting from multiple copies. Being in new places and purchasing pieces yourself gives the gift experience a much more intimate and impressive touch. I enjoy all my gifts and am always grateful to have in my hands jewelry or specialty items that no one else is likely to have in their possession. I sometimes joke that if anyone claims “jewelry is a waste of money,” it is because they might not be worth the expense. I positively think that I am, and obviously my husband does too!

ElénaMartina has a bachelor in psychology from Austin Peay State University, and a Non-profit management certificate from Duke University. She wrote for nine newspapers in North Carolina before moving to California this year. She is writing a novel about arranged marriages due out in 2011.

Citizens celebrate “world record’’ Belgian waffling BY RAF CASERT ASSOCIATED PRESS BRUSSELS (AP), Feb 17 What would be a humiliation for many turned into a party for Belgium Thursday as the country’s citizens marked 249 days without a government, a figure that they are treating as a world record in political waffling. On every other day, the crisis pits the leaders of 6 million Dutch-speakers against those of 4.5 million French speakers, but people from across the country put aside their differences to celebrate the occasion. In Leuven a long line of students snaked through the central square for a free portion of fries, Belgium’s beloved national dish, in a show of gastronomic unity. Across the linguistic border, Belgian beer was expected to flow freely in French-speaking Louvain-la-Neuve. In Ghent, organizers hope 249 people will strip naked to mark the days of the crisis as part of a party expected to draw thousands. “Finally world champion” the usually serious De Standaard headlined its Thursday edition, tongue firmly in cheek. Caretaker Prime Minister Yves Leterme cautioned not to make too much of the day. continued on page 17

“Don’t overestimate the impact on politicians and decisionmakers,’’ he told VRT network. It is arguable whether 249 really is the world record. Iraq took 249 days to get the outlines of a government agreement last year, but the approval of that government took a further 40 days. Still, the way things are going, Belgium will have little problem claiming the record whichever standard is used. After general elections on June 13 last year, Belgium’s major parties began talks to force through the biggest constitutional reform in decades to keep both linguistic groups happy. But since their interests are often diametrically opposed, they ran into one deadlock after another.

King Albert had to appoint and accept the resignation of one go-between after another as the major parties refused to move far from their pre-election position. It is a process which continues to this day. The chances of success for the current negotiator, caretaker Finance Minister Didier Reynders, are seen as slim and the specter of new elections to break the deadlock are looming. “There is a moral duty to be optimistic. And that is very important also in politics,” said Flanders’ Minister President Kris Peeters in an interview. Beyond optimism, Belgians have also made it a moral duty to make fun of themselves. “We never take ourselves seriously. We are the country of the Smurfs, of Tintin, of Rene Magritte and surrealism. So it is

a country that, compared with England or France, we dare to make fun of ourselves,’’ said Brussels politician Luckas Vander Taelen. Along with many, the legislator in the Flemish Parliament takes a rather soothing view of the endlessly winding search for a government. “In any country in the world where two peoples live on the same territory, there are always problems. And mostly these problems are solved with a war. And in Belgium we have a history of 180 years without one casualty,’’ he said. “It might be boring, but it is better than a civil war.” At the heart of the political deadlock is an attempt to broker a new constitution with increased regional autonomy to reflect that the two language communities have increasingly grown apart. Richer Flanders wants as much autonomy as possible, while the poorer Francophone region wants to hold on to a much larger sense of national unity which also guarantees more financial solidarity. Nevertheless, Belgium remains one of the wealthiest nations in the world, giving people the luxury to take things with a chuckle. “At the end of the day we know we are a very, very happy people and that this is a very happy country. We might have some political problems, but then again, we go home, we have nice homes, fantastic social security, medical care, excellent schools,’’ said Vander Taelen. But financial analysts have been looking with an increasingly worried eye toward Belgium. “Concerns about Belgium’s large public debt-to-GDP ratio, the third largest in the region, will probably not abate,’’ Capital Economics wrote in an assessment this week. King Albert has already tasked the caretaker government of acting Prime Minister Yves Leterme to take special measures to safeguard the economic stability of the country for some time to come. On Thursday, though, all thoughts of problems to come were put aside. There was a party going on. “After that, there is another day. After you have the world record, there is the world record-plus-one, and then you have to start negotiating,” Vander Taelen said. “It takes time. A world record is not a shame,’’ he said.

BY ALICIA A. CALDWELL ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON (AP), Mar 05 - When the airline industry took a nose dive a decade ago, executives at global carriers scrambled to find a quick fix to avoid financial ruin. What they came up with, according to federal prosecutors, was a massive price-fixing scheme among airlines that artificially inflated passenger and cargo fuel surcharges between 2000 and 2006 to make up for lost profits. The airlines’ crimes cost U.S. consumers and businesses - mostly international passengers and cargo shippers - hundreds of millions of dollars, prosecutors say. But the airlines caught by the Justice Department have paid a hefty price in the five years since the government’s widespread investigation became public. To date, 19 executives have been charged with wrongdoing four have gone to prison - and 21 airlines have coughed up more than $1.7 billion in fines in one of the largest criminal antitrust investigations in U.S. history. The court cases reveal a complex web of schemes between mostly international carriers willing to fix fees in lockstep with competitors for flights to and from the United States. Convicted airlines include British Airways, Korean Air, and

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

Air France-KLM. No major U.S. carriers have been charged. The price-fixing unraveled largely because two airlines decided to come clean and turn in their co-conspirators. In late 2005, officials with German-based Lufthansa notified the Justice Department that the airline had been conspiring to set cargo surcharges. By Valentine’s Day 2006, FBI agents and their counterparts in Europe made the investigation public by raiding airline offices. After those raids, British-based Virgin Atlantic came forward about its role in a similar scheme to set fuel surcharges for passengers. Investigators eventually found a detailed paper trail laying out agreements, stretching back to 2000, to set passenger and cargo fuel surcharges The probe expanded to airlines doing business between the U.S. and Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia. The Lufthansa and Virgin Atlantic mea culpas allowed them to take advantage of a Justice Department leniency program because they helped crack the conspiracies. Former Associate Attorney General Kevin J. O’Connor, who oversaw Justice’s antitrust division in the late 2000s, said he doesn’t know why they confessed, but the result ``demonstrates the effectiveness of that amnesty program.’’ Now in private practice, O’Connor said companies that

confess for amnesty may be wisely trying to limit liabilities from illegal conduct. “Generally speaking, if they have an inkling they might get caught, they come in,” O’Connor said. “The theory might be that eventually these things will be exposed and why risk continuing.” Federal prosecutors and investigators declined to discuss details of the cases because they are still investigating. “Lufthansa Cargo fully cooperated with the investigation launched by DOJ,” Martin Riecken, Lufthansa’s director of corporate communications for the Americas said. Virgin Atlantic referred all questions to the Justice Department. Airlines and executives who didn’t come forward were charged with violating the Sherman Antitrust Act. Two former airline executives were sentenced to six months in prison; two others were ordered to prison for eight months. Charges are pending against 15 executives, nine of whom are considered fugitives. Bruce McCaffrey, one-time vice president of freight for the Americas at the Australian carrier Qantas, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to restrain trade. He was sentenced to six months in prison in 2008. He admitted working with other airlines to fix cargo fuel surcharges between 2000 and 2006. Keith H. Packer, a former senior manager of sales and market-

ing for British Airways, pleaded to conspiracy to restrain trade and was sentenced to eight months in prison in 2008. He admitted joining the cargo conspiracy in 2002 and participating until February 2006. British Airways and Korean Air pleaded guilty to violating the Sherman act; each was fined $300 million in August 2007. British Airways admitted fixing cargo surcharges from 2002 to 2006 and passenger fuel surcharges from 2004 to 2006. Korean Air admitted fixing cargo and passenger surcharges from 2000 to 2006. Announcing four guilty pleas in June 2008, O’Connor said the case “conservatively, has affected billions of dollars of shipments. Estimates suggest that the harm to American consumers and businesses from this conspiracy is in the hundreds of millions of dollars. “As an example of the impact of the conspiracy, fuel surcharges imposed by some of the conspirators rose by as much as 1,000 percent during the conspiracy, far outpacing any percentage increases in fuel costs that existed during the same time period,” O’Connor said. In one of several lawsuits by passengers and cargo shippers now being heard in a California federal court, San Francisco-based lawyer Christopher Lebsock and others allege airline officials routinely gathered at industry meetings to discuss

fuel costs and how to make up losses. Lebsock said they agreed to add or increase the fuel surcharges that are tacked onto passenger fares and cargo fees. “We have seen in public documents that they were concerned and wanted to raise revenue to offset the increasing price in fuel,” Lebsock said. According to published notes of an October 2005 meeting of airline representatives in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, a host of executives openly spoke about surcharges already in place. One official, identified in meeting minutes only by the initials “GF,” suggested the group create “a subcommittee to study this subject and come up with a joint proposal.” According to published notes of another meeting of airline representatives in Saudi Arabia in September 2004, “the participants agreed to make uniform policy for such (insurance and fuel) surcharges to be applied.” Not all airline officials at these meetings agreed to join the conspiracies. During a 2004 industry meeting in Thailand, executives from U.S. based-United Airlines and Northwest Airlines left the meeting when others started discussing setting fares and fuel surcharges, according to a court filing by lawyers in one class action suit. continued on page 31

BY JEANNINE AVERSA AP ECONOMICS WRITER WASHINGTON (AP), Mar 01 - Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Congress on Tuesday that a prolonged rise in oil prices would pose a danger to the U.S. economy. But he said a more likely outcome is a temporary and modest increase in consumer prices, not runaway inflation. Bernanke, in testimony to the Senate Banking Committee, also defended the Fed’s $600 billion bond-purchase program. He told the panel that it is succeeding in helping the economy. But he avoided answering a question about how he measures its success. Bernanke did express confidence that economic growth would increase this year. He cautioned, though, that it won’t be strong enough to quickly lower unemployment, now at 9 percent. He also cited other risks to the economy, including rising prices for oil, gasoline, food and other commodities, and further weakness in home prices. All could cause Americans to spend less. The Fed chief said the economy still needs the support of the bond-purchase program. He downplayed the risks of runaway

into the wrong ballroom, Lebsock and Justice officials believe executives were more careful to hide their activities. “My sense is they weren’t really open to the public,” Lebsock said. “They weren’t that stupid.” Lebsock said documents obtained in pretrial discovery make clear that many surcharge

discussions carried over from large group meetings around the world to more private office settings and e-mail discussions According to one passenger lawsuit, several Asian airlines - including Cathay Pacific Airways, Japan Airlines, and All Nippon Airways - confined many discussions to phone calls and e-mails.

Lebsock said evidence shows some airline executives tried to hide or destroy incriminating documents and e-mails. Lebsock believes the conspiracies were so well hidden that it’s possible they would have continued undetected had Lufthansa not come forward. “In the absence of someone

coming forward, and ratting it out, it is very, very difficult to establish that there was a (conspiracy),” Lebsock said. —Online: Justice Department’s antitrust division: http://www.justice.gov/atr/index. html

inflation that others have raised. “The most likely outcome is that the recent rise in commodity prices will lead to, at most, a temporary and relatively modest increase in U.S. consumer price inflation,’’ Bernanke said in the first of two appearances this week to deliver the Fed’s twice-a-year economic report to Congress. The bond-purchase program is scheduled to end in June. It is intended to spur more spending and invigorate the economy by lowering rates on loans and boosting prices on stocks. Republicans in Congress and some Fed officials worry that the program could trigger high inflation and a wave of speculative buying on Wall Street that could lead to new bubbles in the prices of assets like stocks and bonds. Sen. Richard Shelby, the panel’s top-ranking Republican, complained that the Fed needs to come up with a way to measure the bond-purchase program’s success. Shelby asked Bernanke for detailed information about whether it was a success or failure. Bernanke said it has helped the economy, but he didn’t provide specifics. Bernanke said the bond program is needed to energize growth and reduce unemployment. He

blamed the rise in oil and global commodities prices on strong demand from fast-growing countries such as China, not on the Fed’s stimulus policy. Gasoline prices jumped over the weekend to a new nationwide average of $3.37 a gallon 26.7 cents a gallon more than a month ago. Food prices in January rose at the fastest since the fall of 2008. Political upheaval in the Middle East, Bernanke said, has caused oil and gasoline prices to march higher. But Bernanke said he and a majority of his Fed colleagues believe the situation won’t lead to out of control inflation. Workers have little power to demand big pay increases because the jobs market is still weak. Many factories and other companies are operating well below full capacity because customer demand is far from booming. Those forces will prevent inflation from taking off, Bernanke said. Responding to questions from concerned lawmakers about rising energy prices, Bernanke said the increases seen so far “while a problem for many people, don’t pose a significant risk to the recovery or to overall inflation.” Still, a prolonged rise in the

price of oil or other commodities would represent a “threat” to economic growth and to inflation, Bernanke acknowledged. Sen. Robert Menendez complained that all American families see and are concerned about are rising prices. The Fed regularly reviews its bond-purchase program. It could buy fewer securities if the economy were to grow more strongly than anticipated or if inflation showed signs of breaking out. Or it could buy more if the economy was in danger of weakening. Most economists believe the Fed will spend the full $600 billion on schedule. Bernanke says the sharp drops in the U.S. unemployment rates over the last two months were encouraging. But he said it will still take ``several years’’ for unemployment to drop back to normal - around 6 percent. ``Until we see a sustained period of stronger job creation, we cannot consider the recovery to be truly established,’’ he said. If gas prices rise to $3.75 a gallon and stay there for a year, the economy would still grow, but it wouldn’t get a boost from people spending more on goods and services, analysts say. If gasoline prices went as high as $5 a gallon, spending cuts by consumers and busi-

nesses could push the U.S. economy into a recession. On a separate issue, Bernanke said a failure by Congress to boost the federal government’s borrowing authority would be an ``extremely dangerous and a recovery-ending event.’’ Republicans in Congress want to link any increases in the nation’s debt limit to cuts in federal spending to reduce the budget deficit. Democrats oppose that strategy. In the unlikely event that Congress didn’t raise the debt ceiling, the federal government wouldn’t be able to pay its bills, triggering a financial crisis, Bernanke said. Interest rates would spike, slowing spending by Americans and derailing the recovery. Bernanke also said that a House Republican plan to cut spending would reduce economic growth and employment. But he suggested the impact would be limited. Republicans want to slash $60 billion-plus from agency budgets over the coming months as a down payment on larger cuts later in the year. But they are settling for just $4 billion in especially easy cuts as the price for a two-week stopgap bill to avert a government shutdown.

SUBMITTED BY KRISTIN MELLON On February 26, students from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont competed and won in the National Ocean Sciences Bowl’s (NOSB) “Sea Lion Bowl” at San Francisco State University. The NOSB is a program of the Consortium for Ocean Leadership based in Washington, D.C. Fifteen high schools with four or five students on each team participated in this year’s Sea Lion Bowl. By winning the regional competition, Mission San Jose High School now moves on to face 24 other regional champions in the 14th Annual National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB®) April 29 – May 1at Texas A&M University in Galveston, Texas. The competition consists of buzzer-style, roundrobin multiple choice questions and longer team challenge questions. “I am very proud that this prestigious program has attracted so many exceptionally bright students to test their knowledge of ocean science at such a high level,” said Robert B. Gagosian, President & CEO of the Consortium for Ocean Leadership. “As the future leaders of our nation, I know this experience will encourage them to strive to continue to understand, conserve and protect our ocean resources for future generations,” continued Gagosian. Approximately 2,000 students from over 300 high schools will participate this year. Through this educational forum, the NOSB strives to encourage and support the next generation of marine scientists, policy makers, teachers, explorers, researchers, technicians, environmental advocates and informed citizens. The winning team from Mission San Jose High School is coached by Julie Raymond. Team members are Jared Shen (Captain), Eun Seo Choi, Wesley Chou, Jeffery Li and Margaret Shen.

BY MARTIN GRIFFITH ASSOCIATED PRESS RENO, Nev. (AP), Jan 08 - Some 150 years after the forty-niners rushed west in search of riches, a new gold discovery in the Sierra Nevada is stirring excitement. A 100-ounce nugget, found by a man last year on his property near Nevada City, Calif., is expected to fetch between $225,000 and $400,000 when it goes up for auction March 15 in Sacramento, Calif. Fred Holabird, a mining geologist whose Reno-based company is one of the country’s largest sellers of Western Americana and is handling its sale, thinks it’s the largest California gold nugget left in existence. Virtually all of California’s gold fields have been thoroughly combed by miners, he said, and other monster nuggets from the Golden State have been melted into ingots for money. While bigger nuggets have surfaced in Australia in recent decades, no similar-sized placer nuggets from California have turned up in museums, he added. The Smithsonian Institution’s largest placer nugget from California weighs about 80 ounces.

March 11, 2011

“The chances of finding something like this anymore are beyond remote. It could be one in a trillion,” Holabird said. The man was using a metal detector in an unmined ancient stream bed near the old Mother Lode mining camp of Washington when he stumbled on the nugget in February 2010. The Union of Grass Valley, Calif., has identified him as San Francisco businessman Jim Sanders. The so-called Washington Nugget is thick and oblong, and resembles a “squished loaf of bread,’’ Holabird said, adding it was found in the same area where hydraulic mining was invented in the 19th century. A lack of records makes it difficult to determine how the nugget compares in size historically, said John Clinkenbeard, senior geologist with the California Geological Survey in Sacramento. But he said he’s unaware of any similar 100-ounce placer nugget being found in California in recent decades. “I can’t put a numerical value on how rare it is to find a nugget like this,’’ Clinkenbeard said. “All I know is that large nuggets are very rare and your odds of finding one aren’t very good.’’ The largest known nugget found in California weighed 54 pounds and was found in 1859 in Butte County, he added. The California State Mining and Mineral Museum in Mariposa, Calif., displays the Fricot ``Nugget,’’ a rare 13.8-pound specimen of crystallized gold discovered in the American River in 1864. But Clinkenbeard and Holabird said there’s a difference between Mariposa’s crystalline gold specimen and the placer nugget found last year. True nuggets such as the latter are a product of erosion in a modern or ancient streambed, while the former consists of native gold in quartz that has not gone through the same erosional process. While current gold prices would make the Washington Nugget worth roughly $130,000, Holabird expects a collector to pay well more because of its historical value. Gold closed at $1,368.90 an ounce Friday. “It’s worth more as a collectible,” he said. “No one will be melting this thing. It’s one of the most important California gold artifacts that exist.”

Twitter is full of regional ‘accents,’ study finds continued from page 28 colleagues were able to analyze the geotags attached to Twitter messages sent from mobile phones for the study. In all, they looked at 4.5 million words. “Some of what we found really just confirms previous intuitions, but some things were much more specific for social media,’’ said Eisenstein, noting the phrase “very tired.” Northern Californians tend to substitute “hella” for very, whereas New Yorkers opt for

“deadass” tired; those in Los Angeles would be more likely to follow the word tired with the abbreviation “af’’ - short for “as (expletive.)’’ Some of the differences across Twitter can be explained by the need to write concisely to fit the site’s 140-character limit. But others, not so much. While using “u” in place of the two-character longer “you” is pretty common, a lot of New Yorkers do the opposite and

lengthen the word to “youu.” Or even emphasize “I” by writing two of them - as in “II.” Scott Kiesling, associate professor of linguistics at the University of Pittsburgh, said social media provides researchers lots of easily obtainable data in which they can explore and examine how people are speaking. He said the next step is examining whether these phrases spread like “pancake batter hitting a pan or hop from city to city” - if they

spread at all. “That’s sort of the big question,” Kiesling said. He said there’s a burgeoning interest among linguists to study online speech more closely, and noted a conference this year at Georgetown University that will be examining language and new media. Eisenstein said some of the online “accents’’ mirror those in the spoken language, but not all. For example, many people in the

Great Lakes region tend to have similar accents when speaking, but that wasn’t necessarily found to be true in the study, he said. “One thing I think that it shows is that people really have a need to communicate their identity - their cultural identity and their geographic identity in social media,” he said. —— Online: http://www.ml.cmu.edu/

Just as students are motivated to compete in various sporting activities, students compete as a team against other schools in 23 different events that range the spectrum of science subjects.” Areas covered in the competition are: Life Sciences, Physical Science, Technology, Engineering, Chemistry, and Inquiry and Nature of Science. BARSO hosts the regional competition for public, private, or home schools in Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa

Cruz, Monterey, San Benito, Santa Clara, Alameda, and Contra Costa counties. Thornton’s students teamed up for these diverse events in Division B for middle school students. The common thread that held them together was their love for Science. With hard work, determination, and team spirit, the students placed second at the Bay Area Regional Science Olympiad. It has been a journey of self-discovery, too, for the parents and stu-

dents. They enjoyed their awesome roller coaster ride together exploring the field of science in a way they had never done before. Parents supported them throughout as mentors. According to the head coach, Ms. Satish, “Parents have supported and drawn from each other to make the student experience an active and engaging one. I am grateful to all the parents, Science teachers, Ms. Kathy Ashford from FUSD, Thornton Principal Ms. Hamilton and Sci-

ence teacher Ms. Norling, for supporting this pursuit of Science as well.” The work of these superb “Thunderbolts” is not yet over. The students will now participate in the State Competition to be held on April 9, in Fresno. They will be joined by BARSO’s first place winner, Challenger School, and third place finisher, Hopkins Jr. High.

eral Vacancies Reform Act of 1998. Because of that law, DiCicco was no longer acting assistant attorney general for the tax division as of midnight last Thursday. But the law also prevents naming a new acting chief at this point. That prompted action of sorts at the White House and the Justice Department. “We’re identifying the best possible candidate to fill this role, and we hope to make the nomination soon,” White House spokesman Reid Cherlin said. But such searches are always harder when the job can only be guaranteed for less than two years. The Justice Department came up with a lawyerly solution to deal with the dilemma posed by the reform act. The department replaced the word “acting” in DiCicco’s title with the word “deputy.” “Deputy Assistant Attorney

General DiCicco will continue to lead the division until a confirmed assistant attorney general is in place,’’ department spokesman Matthew Miller said. “The day-to-day operations of the tax division are not affected by the change in his title,” Miller added. But the division will now work closely with Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli’s office on matters that need higher-level attention, such as settlements of major tax cases. Smith, a member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, grew up in Chicago and graduated magna cum laude from Loyola University in 1984. She became a lawyer and served in the mid-1990s as a trial attorney in Justice’s civil division. She worked on President Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign, spent three years as associate director of policy planning

for Clinton’s Domestic Policy Council and was a lawyer in the White House’s counsel’s office. After the Clinton administration, she went to the Washington law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom and specialized in governmental investigations and securities class-action lawsuits. She moved to Tyco International (US) Inc. as senior litigation counsel and managed a massive lawsuit against the company that was settled for $3 billion. She left Tyco to work fulltime for Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign and later joined Barack Obama’s campaign as a member of the Women’s Leadership Group, the Native American Policy Committee and the Criminal Justice Policy Committee. After the 2008 election, Obama put her on the Justice Department transition team, where she over-

saw tax division issues. In April 2008, Obama announced he would nominate her. The Senate Judiciary Committee twice voted along party lines to recommend her nomination to the full Senate, which did not act on it either time. Her first nomination was returned to the White House in December 2009; the second nomination, last August. That marked the end of the effort to put her in charge of the tax division. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, now ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, had called her “a very nice person and a competent attorney.” But Grassley opposed her because she “does not have the requisite tax background.” Another Judiciary committee Republican, Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, said he was glad Obama did not nominate her a third time. The tax division chief, said Sessions, “has to have judgment and experience in taxes - in my opinion.” When Smith’s nominations emerged from committee, contentious issues like health care and Wall Street reform soaked up the Senate’s time, leaving little room for lesser matters.

Smith and some other nominees were squeezed out by Republican opposition and the press of other business. But does it matter if the tax division goes more than two years without a leader who has the imprimatur of two branches of government? Yes, says Mark E. Matthews, who was deputy assistant attorney general of the tax division from 1994 to 1998. “A Senate-confirmed assistant attorney general in the tax division elevates the Justice Department’s voice and influence in broader tax administration issues involving the IRS and the Treasury Department,’’ said Matthews, now a partner at Morgan Lewis in Washington. “Within the Justice Department, it is generally believed a confirmed assistant attorney general has additional leverage in budget discussions that are critical to the division’s success,’’ added Matthews, who was chief of the IRS criminal investigation division from 2000 to 2002 and deputy commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service from 2003 to 2006.

From Friday, March 4, through Sunday, March 6, East Bay’s athletic programs combined for a 2-9 record. If not for the underachieving women’s water polo team (who stepped it up for a 2-1 mark last week), East Bay would have been winless. CSUEB women’s water polo was in Rohnert Park on Friday, March 4, to open up their weekend play against Sonoma State. Following the win, the Lady Pioneers went to Davis for a doubleheader, first against UC Davis and second against Santa Clara. UC Davis got the best of East Bay, dropping them 12-8. Whitney Bell netted three in the loss. East Bay got back on track against Santa Clara later in the day, topping the Broncos, 11-7. It was the Claire

Pierce show as the Lady Pioneer star scored six goals to lead the way. East Bay upped its record to 10-7, 6-2 in WWPA play. Where there is promise with the Pioneers water polo club, the two diamond sports teams — baseball and softball — went a combined 0-8 over the weekend, both being swept in four-game series. East Bay Softball was at Turlock to take on Cal State Stanislaus. There wasn’t much offense to come by from the Lady Pioneers. On day one’s doubleheader, Stanislaus won 3-0 and 3-2. Taylor Neumann had both RBIs on the day; Kelly Lowe and Heidi McCallister were the pitchers tagged with the losses. On day two, Stanislaus won 6-2 and 9-4. Both East Bay runs in game one game in the final frame, with the game all but over. Lauren Zweigle got the loss. In game two, Sara Velasquez led the offense with a 2-3 game and two RBIs; Talia Ferrari got the loss on the mound.

For the East Bay baseball team, they were in Los Angeles to take on Cal State UniversityLA. Outside of the 14-13 loss on Saturday, March 5, the Pioneers were blown out, losing 10-0 on Friday, March 4, 7-0 in game two on Saturday and 8-4 on Sunday, March 6. Brandyn Bell and A.J. Gallardo got the losses in the shutout losses. Zach Aguirre was the losing pitcher in Sunday’s contest. In game one of Saturday’s doubleheader, East Bay performed admirably in the loss. Trailing 13-10 in the final inning, the Pioneers plated three runs to tie the game. However, CSULA plated the run they needed to win the match. Zachary Wong got the loss. Andrew Woolfe led the Pioneers offense with a 3-5, three-RBI day. Things picked up though, when CSUEB started play in the early week. East Bay’s Lady Pioneers softball team had a four-game makeup series at

Chico State which was washed out due to rain last month. On Tuesday, March 8, East Bay ended its four-game skid with a 5-2 victory in the first of the four games. Nikki Freiberg led the Lady Pioneers offense with a 2-3 day and two RBIs. Emily Montanez (2-4, RBI), Dani Foster (2-4, RBI) and Jamie Yaller (2-3, RBI) all chipped in to aid in the victory. Kelly Lowe threw a complete game on the mound for the victory, striking out seven along the way. In the second game of Tuesday, East Bay’s hopes for a win streak were dashed when Chico State walked off with a 3-2 triumph. Taylor Neumann singled home the tying run in the Lady Pioneers’ last at bat, with two outs. But in the bottom half, East Bay’s Catherine Schorn allowed a game-winning RBI double to Chico’s Hanamaikai and got the loss. Both teams met for another double dip on Wednesday,

March 9. Chico State maintained the momentum they gained with its walk off win the night before, winning both ends of the doubleheader, 6-2 in game one; 4-2 in game two.

ost road trips don’t start with a visit to the dentist, but appointments in Los Gatos spurred us on to drive south to Santa Cruz, then up Route 1 to Half Moon Bay. This odd itin-

passed along fields of farms, fertile and fallow. To the west, beaches and cliffs hove into view, surfers in black skins swarmed around old station wagons, then headed down narrow sandy paths, boards pointing to the sea like compass needles. Unmarked

This was our first extended trip with our “Cuisinart” dog, Sidney. He’s small, only 10 lb. and a bit scruffy in an elegant kind of way. We adopted him 2 years ago at an Adopt-A-Pet happening in Niles Community Park, right behind our house. Sidney has a poodle mix

erary gave us a chance to enjoy the scenic ride along the coast, yet not venture too far from home or use up the whole week-end. It’s an easy drive, but like most California highways, there were too many people in a hurry. When we finally left Santa Cruz and headed north on Route 1, the traffic abated, until it seemed we were almost alone on the road. We drove past wildflowers, purples, yellows, pinks, then green, yellow and brown dune grasses, tall and waving. We left the sun high above while riding through dark forests, then

trails or state beaches with parking lots invited us to experience the excitement of the waves. But “No Dogs” signs competed with the welcome and we did not stop.

His specific lineage being a We wanted to give Sidney his first taste of sand and surf, but so far it wasn’t happening. Our drive took us through permutations of sun and clouds, in and out of misty marine layers. We reached the town of Half Moon Bay at 3 p.m., after pulling over for car sandwiches of BBQ ribs and home made bread, and a stop at a straw-

berry, pie and jam shop along the road. The town was overcast, or what in Northern California coast towns can be described as an atmosphere of benign sea fog. The feeling is a bit ethereal, a bit magic, a bit cold and damp. But the Main Street of Half Moon Bay, lined with colorful displays and appealing storefronts, makes up for the iffy weather. There is a superfluity of coffee shops, bistros, sandwich joints and up-scale restaurants, interspersed with gift shops, clothing stores, salons, and one large country store. Happily, many places allowed Sidney to trot on in with us. It seems that Half Moon Bay is dog heaven. We could hardly traverse a whole block without being stopped by fawning folks exclaiming “What kind of dog is that?” or “How cute!!!” or just smiling adoringly at Sid. Having done our research, we had a one night reservation at the Half Moon Bay Inn, right on Main Street. Dogs are welcome and our charming, ground floor room included dog bowls, biscuits, and a big

round soft dog bed. There was a queen-sized bed for us and a day bed with pull-out trundle in case we had been traveling with children. The Southwestish décor: pine bed frame, terra cotta tile floor and wrought iron sconces, was relaxingly simple and serene, the linens and blankets abundant and comfy, and our handicapped accessible bathroom spacious. First on our agenda, as it usually is when we travel – the nap, or, as my Dad likes to say, “a little stretch-out.” An hour or so later, restless and leaving Dr. Park to sleep, I took Sidney for a walk around the block. We wandered down Main Street, window shopping. A kitchen gadget and appliance store caught my eye. The owner loved dogs, and we talked “dog” while I wandered amongst the primary-colored plastic spatulas, juice squeezers, egg slicers, oven mitts, and past the bright orange retro refrigerator. Next door was another favorite haunt, a stationary emporium, stocked with tempting notebooks of all sizes and colors, lined and unlined, filled with blank pages awaiting inspiration. There were shelves of beautiful cards, and pencils, amusing erasers, and assorted temptations begging to be picked up and purchased. I escaped with one set of notebooks, with coordinating blue covers (a journalist’s write-off ). Sidney and I strolled on down the street, across a wooden foot bridge and found a small secluded dog park on

the other side. Unfortunately, a woman with a large black dog, already in the park, warned me that she didn’t think her dog liked small dogs, so Sidney and I beat a hasty and disappointed retreat. No sense in looking for trouble, we agreed. Further along, past the bridge, the scene turned commercially mundane. There was a Starbucks plus

eateries found ubiquitously across the state if not the country. We turned back as the mist grew thicker, the dew heavier. Passing by a bar, we heard the excited cries of soccer fans. Traffic thickened as the end of the day drew in, the passage of cars was steadier, folks headed for home rather than meandering along. The Half Moon Bay Inn, situated right on the corner of Main and Mill Street, houses a nice Italian restaurant on the ground floor. In fact, our room was directly next door to it and shared a wall with the patio. We could hear the staff preparing

for the night’s customers. So we went off to Its Italia Restaurant for dinner, a jumping bistro full of diners and bar patrons and a lot of happy sounds. Again, we had made the choice because it has a patio out back and is a dog-friendly bistro. I don’t think they expected how friendly they were going to get! Despite the table level gas fires and patio heaters, the tile floor was damp. Sidney was wearing his best hand-knit sweater and it never occurred to us to make him lie under the table. We sat him on a towel on a chair, his little head poked above the white table cloth, and

his big brown eyes watched everything. He shared my sole and focaccia, had a bite or two of Dr. Park’s spaghetti, and a bit of meatball. We all had decaf cappuccino rather than dessert. Perfectly behaved, he attracted a coterie of admiring wait staff, babies and children. Yes, we know it’s a bit “over the top” but it amused us no end. Many of Half Moon Bay’s bistros and coffee shops have outdoor eating areas that welcome dogs, so it’s a good destination if you travel dog en famille. The next day was supposed to be clear and sunny but the

marine layer was still laying around. It was a good day to visit Fengari, the stunning yarn and knit shop next to the Inn. We chose some chunky green tweed wool for Sidney’s next sweater. Across the street is the two-story Cunha Country Grocery store (which reminded us of Al and Susie Cunha’s Antique Treasures in Niles). It is filled with international foods: coffees, chocolates, and canned goods. There is a fresh deli section, and upstairs a sparse offering of gifts, second hand clothes, and a grouchy parrot. Outside again we followed the signs for the local Farmers Market. It turned out to be a small but classy affair. A trio of musicians played folk music, fresh blueberries, raspberries, nectarines and peaches were cut up for sampling. Locally made

cheeses were laid out in a stall next to fresh-picked corn, and Café de Mi Abuelo coffee, from the family’s farm in Dilpito, Nicaragua, was irresistible. It was time to head home. We thought we might find a viable beach south of town, but the weather was still so chilly that none of us were tempted to slide down the dunes to the water. Strangely, it seemed, the beach did have families out, lying on blankets and playing in the waves, despite the low temperatures. We doubled back to Route 84, which heads east from Route 1, and would take us all the way home to Fremont. It is a beautiful, winding drive through redwoods and pines, without a lot of traffic until near the end. In fact, our journey home took only an hour and a half. We had been on an adventure and back again; and still had most of our weekend to relax.
