Ravens,49ersstage dramaticSuper Bowl
By Brett Martel
NEW ORLEANS — The Harbaugh fam-ily sure knows how to throw a Super party.In the end,it was older brother JohnHarbaugh and his Baltimore Ravens whocame out on top,hanging on for a 34-31 winover Jim Harbaugh and his San Francisco49ers in a Super Bowl that had everything.After the game,John Harbaugh said itwas hard to compete against his brother.The brothers met at midfield as the con-fetti rained down. “I told him I loved him,”John said. “He said,‘Congratulations.”Jim Harbaugh later declined a postgameinterview with CBS.With mom Jackie and dad Jack watchingfrom somewhere in the Superdome,theHarbaugh brothers put on a championshipgame to remember. First it was the Ravenswho raced to a 28-6 lead after Jacoby Jonesreturned the second-half kickoff a SuperBowl-record 108 yards for a score.Then came a power outage,which

Ari Sonnenberg cringed at thesound of two children laughing at atable behind him in a MountainView cafe.The veteran Army sergeant firstclass has a medal for saving school-children from a car bombing near aSyrian border in Iraq.He was deployed there threetimes. His 14 years of serviceincluded earlier tours in Bosnia andKosovo.Coming home with post-traumat-ic stress disorder,Sonnenberg hasstruggled to relate to civilian life.“Even that’s difficult,heexplained,nodding to the children.“People think that as soon as weleave combat,we leave it allbehind,he said. “There’s no magicswitch to turn it off.”The Brooklyn native and formerBurlingame resident is wary of themedia,which he says often falselyportrays veterans as monsters. Inreality,the public just does notunderstand what they have beenthrough,he said.On top of the enormous strains of attempting to transition to a “nor-mal”life,thousands of veterans likeSonnenberg wait years to receivecompensation for their service-con-nected disabilities from the

SAN FRANCISCO A spirit of hope and anticipation across SanFrancisco rapidly deterioratedSunday to sullen disappointmentafter the San Francisco 49ers lost tothe Baltimore Ravens in the SuperBowl.In the Mission District,which hadbeen the center of celebrations —and violence — after the SanFrancisco Giants won the WorldSeries last fall,disappointed fansstumbled out of bars after the 34-31loss.“Damn,that’s all I have to say,”said Niners fan David Mejia,32,of San Francisco.As the game drew to an end,dozens of police officers and sher-iff’s deputies fanned out on foot,motorcycles and patrol cars. Apatrol helicopter hovered above,watching for signs of trouble.The city had braced for possiblerowdiness in the wake of the dam-age caused after the Niners won theNFC Championship Game twoweeks ago and the Giants’win in theWorld Series.After the NFC ChampionshipGame,about a dozen people werearrested — mostly for public intoxi-cation. When the Giants won theWorld Series in late October,a citybus was set ablaze,cars were over-

Affleck’s ‘Argo’winsDirectors Guild top honor
LOS ANGELES — Ben Affleck haswon the top film honor from the DirectorsGuild of America for his CIA thriller“Argo,”further sealing its status as best-picture front-runner at the AcademyAwards.Saturday’s prize also normally wouldmake Affleck a near shoo-in to win best-director at the Feb. 24 Oscars,since theDirectors Guild recipient nearly alwaysgoes on to claim the same prize atHollywood’s biggest night.But Affleck surprisingly missed out onan Oscar directing nomination,alongwith several other key favorites,includingfellow Directors Guild contendersKathryn Bigelow for “Zero Dark Thirty”and Tom Hooper for “Les Miserables.”Affleck’s Oscar snub has not hurt“Argo”and may even have earned it somefavor among awards voters as an under-dog favorite. “Argo”has dominated otherawards since the Oscar nominations.“I don’t think that this makes me a realdirector,but I think it means I’m on myway,”said Affleck,who won for just histhird film behind the camera.The Directors Guild honors continuedHollywood’s strange awards season,which could culminate with a big Oscarwin for Affleck’s “Argo.”The guild’sprize for best director typically is a finalblessing for the film that goes on to winbest-picture and director at the Oscars.Affleck cango only one-for-two at theOscars,though. WhileArgo”is upfor best pic-ture,thedirector’sbranch of theAcademy of MotionPicture Artsand Sciencesoverlookedhim for a directing slot.Backstage at the Directors Guild hon-ors,Affleck said he had nothing butrespect for the academy and that “you’renot entitled to anything.”“I’m thrilled and honored that the acad-emy nominated me as a producer of themovie,”Affleck said. “I know our movie,we’re a little bit underdog and a little bitthe little engine that could,and you takeme out of it maybe helps ... it’s just aboutthat picture. I feel like it’s OK,I’m real-ly lucky,I’m in a good place.With 12 Oscar nominations,StevenSpielberg’s Civil War saga “Lincoln”ini-tially looked like the Oscar favorite oversuch other potential favorites as “Argo,”“Les Miserables”and “Zero Dark Thirty,”since films generally have littlechance of winning best picture if they arenot nominated for best director. Onlythree films have done it in 84 years,mostrecently 1989’s best-picture champ“Driving Miss Daisy,”which failed toearn a directing nomination for BruceBeresford.But Affleck’s “Argo,”in which he alsostars as a CIA operative who hatches abold plan to rescue six Americans duringthe hostage crisis in Iran,has swept up allthe major awards since the Oscar nomi-nations. “Argo”won best drama anddirector at the Golden Globes and topfilm honors from the Screen ActorsGuild and the Producers Guild of America.Many of the same film professionalswho vote in guild awards also cast ballotsfor the Oscars,so all the wins for “Argo”are a strong sign that the film has theinside track for best picture.Milos Forman,a two-time DirectorsGuild and Oscar winner for “One FlewOver the Cuckoo’s Nestand“Amadeus,received the group’s life-time-achievement award. GuildPresident Taylor Hackford let the crowdin a toast to Forman,who was ill andunable to attend.Malik Bendjelloul won the guild’sdocumentary award for “Searching forSugar Man,his study of the fate of crit-ically acclaimed but obscure 1970ssinger-songwriter Rodriquez. The filmalso is nominated for best documentary atthe Oscars.Jay Roach won the guild trophy for TVmovies and miniseries for “GameChange,his drama starring JulianneMoore as Sarah Palin in her 2008 vice-presidential run.

mid considerable confusion causedby the fire,the manager of thePeninsula Hotel,E. G. Borden,sud-denly ordered the San Mateo police to geteveryone off of the grounds surrounding thehotel.“They’re looting the hotel’s property,”heshouted.The fire had started at 5:15 p.m. June 25,1920,as he and his associates were talking tonews people at the city’s newspaper,the NewsLeader. Borden was enthusiastic about hisplans for the newly reopened hotel. The auto-mobile had changed the tranquil scene andaltered the pace of life on the Peninsula.Parking for the new fad of “touring”hadalready become a problem for the older estab-lished hotels on the Peninsula,and Borden’splan was to build parking spaces for 100 auto-mobiles.The four-letter word “FIRE”changed all of his plans. Now he was in a fight to save theformer mansion of Alvinza Hayward. It was ahuge,wooden,multi-story structure that hadbecome a landmark on the Peninsula since itsconstruction in 1886 by a multi-millionairegold-mining citizen,Alvinza Hayward. (Thegrounds of the house sit in what is known asthe Glazenwood residential area of San Mateotoday). The stick-style mansion with itsgabled roof tower was impressive and out of character for the stern,dour,sometimes vul-gar,60ish landowner who had lived in themansion with his wife and only survivingdaughter Emma. On the estate,he had hugestable and race track built to run his magnifi-cent horses. He fenced in deer and elk for hisenjoyment and he had a lake created withplenty of ducks and swans. Of course he hadservants for tending to the cooking,house-keeping and keeping the acres of gardens,hedges and grounds in immaculate shape,buthe was still a man from a laboring back-ground. His wife Charity never did quiteadjust to being rich and practiced thrift almostto the extreme.After Hayward died in 1904,the mansionand 15 acres of its beautiful ground were soldto a local group for $125,000. More than$300,000 were poured into remodeling andrenovation so that 300 people could beaccommodated in its 122 rooms. The hotelopened Feb. 22,1908 amid much excitement,pomp and ceremony. Great times were prom-ised by the hotel management. There wouldbe beautiful drives to the Crystal Springs Damwhere there is no better view in the world. Thebowling alley,card rooms,billiard tables andtasteful surroundings were geared to attract-ing rich patrons from San Francisco.However,it failed to pay for itself and it wasclosed,only to be reopened in 1917 undernew management.
