The newly formed District 13 state Senate
seat will be won with big money.
The two candidates for the seat have
raised nearly $850,000 this year leading up
to the November election but one cam-
paign is almost totally self-funded while
the other has garnered donations from a
broad group of support-
The race pits current
Assemblyman Jerry Hill,
D-San Mateo, against
Sally Lieber, also a
Democrat, and a former
assemblywoman from
Mountain View.
Hills campaign is sup-
ported mostly by dona-
tions while Lieber has
poured $200,000 into her
own campaign. Both think
its a fact that voters
should consider.
Hill thinks the public
has grown tired of self-
funded campaigns while
Lieber says Hills cam-
paign is being fueled by special interests.
Lieber has about $213,000 to spend on the
race now, according to campaign reports led
with the California secretary of state June 4.
Yesterday was a deadline for statewide candi-
dates to file the latest finance reports,
although they had up until midnight to do so
electronically. She told the Daily Journal yes-

As the male Chihuahua cozied up to Lt. Ken
Jones of the Sheriffs Ofce, fellow peace
ofcers felt certain it was a match made in

Happy endings like that are the goal of the
TAILS program in which county jail inmates
train dogs from the Peninsula Humane
Society, getting the furry guys ready for adop-
tion and learning some skills themselves, too.
On Tuesday morning, the inmates and their
canine companions strutted their stuff at a
graduation ceremony marking the end of the
eight-week training session and celebrating
the two-year anniversary of Transitioning
Animals Into Loving Situations.
For all the pomp and circumstance not to
mention a whole new batch of grassy patches

Recreational vehicles, boats and stretch lim-
ousines are taking up valuable street parking
space in San Mateo, according to homeowner
groups and the citys Public Works
Commission is considering tweaks to an ordi-
nance that could forbid overnight parking of
RVs along with some other restrictions.
The San Mateo United Homeowners
Association approached the city last year
requesting that the oversized vehicle parking
problem in the neighborhood be addressed.
The city amended municipal code in 1996
to prohibit commercial vehicle parking in res-
idential neighborhoods but the city still gets
numerous complaints, according to the Public
Works Department.
The code denes a commercial vehicle as
being 10,000 pounds or more.
Enforcement of the current code, however,
is limited as it is difcult for trafc ofcers to
determine if a vehicle is more than 10,000
pounds, according to the Public Works
Large vehicles take up valuable on-street
parking spaces, create noise, block driveway
access and potentially restrict visibility, espe-
cially when they are parked close to an inter-
section, according to the Public Works
The Public Works Commission will consid-
er amendments to municipal code that
expands the denition of what commercial
and recreational vehicles are and how long
they can park on the street.
Currently, any vehicle can be towed in the
city if it is parked in the same spot for more
than 72 hours.
An amendment to municipal code, however,
will restrict oversized recreational vehicle
parking in neighborhoods except for overnight
loading and unloading. Violators will be cited,
rather than towed with the amendments.
The department is seeking public comment
on the issue and will hold a community work-
shop tonight.
Oversized vehicles can restrict driver visi-
bility and compete for valuable on-street park-
ing. For owners of these vehicles, accessible
parking is important. Our goal is to gather
input that allows us to develop ordinance lan-
guage that addresses the challenges, while not
creating an unreasonable challenge for resi-
dents or owners of oversized vehicles, Public
Works Director Larry Patterson wrote in a
The workshop will include a guided small
group discussion on draft language and a
review of possible implementation approaches

Boy playing with mattresses,
candle sparks house fire
A 9-year-old boy constructing a fort with
mattresses and candles in his familys garage
in East Palo Alto sparked a two-alarm re that
destroyed the home Tuesday afternoon, a
Menlo Park Fire District re chief said.
The re was reported in the 100 block of
Jasmine Way in East Palo Alto at 2:30 p.m.,
Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman said.
Fireghters arrived to a home on re that
had spread from the garage throughout the
home, and pulled down a power line between
the home and a neighbors house.
Initial reports had come in that the boy was
still in the garage, but it was discovered the
boy had run from the garage down the block
knocking on doors and was in the care of a
neighbor, Schapelhouman said.
Four people were inside the home when the
re began, including the boy, an infant, an
older sister and his mother, the re chief said.
The 9-year-old had set up a play structure
with a tent and a couple mattresses when he
decided to get a candle, Schapelhouman said.
Thats where things started to deteriorate,
he said.
The boy dropped the candle and the mat-
tress ignited. His sister opened the garage
door at this point and it was lled with smoke.
She screamed, which woke her mother who
was sleeping upstairs with the infant,
Schapelhouman said.
When the sister screamed, the boy ran down
the block, unknown to the other members of
his family, who believed he was in the garage
that was now ablaze, Schapelhouman said.
The mother, believing her son was in the
garage, attempted to enter the garage and suf-
fered minor burns and smoke inhalation, the
re chief said. She then called 911 before get-
ting her infant child and evacuating the home.
The sister also suffered smoke inhalation.
The re then started to spread to a neigh-
boring home where an invalid resident needed
assistance to leave the house. With the help of
family members, everyone from the home was
able to safely evacuate.
The house sustained minor damage and was
deemed safe to re-enter, Schapelhouman said.
The re was under control by 3 p.m., how-
ever the house and its contents were a total
loss. Two cars parked in front of the garage
were also destroyed in the blaze, the re chief

SACRAMENTO Californias move to
tighten eligibility requirements for its Cal
Grant program will eliminate or reduce
awards to 14,500 students, most of them
enrolled in for-prot colleges such as the
University of Phoenix, the California Student
Aid Commission announced Tuesday.
The commission released a list of colleges
that are no longer eligible to receive Cal
Grants under tougher standards passed by the
Legislature and signed by Democratic Gov.
Jerry Brown in June. The rules were adopted
to save an estimated $55 million and address
the states budget decit.
Californias public universities and most
nonprot, private colleges met the new stan-
dards for graduation rates and student loan
Of the 170 for-prot schools that participate
in the state nancial aid program, 137, or 80
percent, could not meet them. They include
the University of Phoenix, ITT Technical
Institute, Kaplan College, Heald College and
More than a dozen private colleges, includ-
ing Christian colleges, also could not meet the
higher standards.
Overall, about 4 percent of the 354,500 stu-
dents eligible for Cal Grants will be affected.
According to the commission, the change will
eliminate aid to 7,800 new students and
reduce 20 percent of the awards to 6,700
returning students this fall.
California is the rst state to set such high
benchmarks, which are tougher than federal
requirements, said Diana Fuentes-Michel,
executive director of the commission.
In a tight budget situation, the Legislature
was prudent in terms of looking at how we
fund not only students but institutions, she
The state now requires a graduation rate of
at least 30 percent and a federal student loan
default rate of less than 15.5 percent for one
year. By comparison, Fuentes-Michel said the
federal government requires a higher educa-
tion institution to have a student default rate of
less than 30 percent for three years.
University of Phoenix spokesman Ryan
Rauzon said the change disproportionately
hurts working adults, many of whom attend
for-prot schools because they better accom-
modate their work schedules. He said between
2,000 and 3,000 of the universitys students
will see their Cal Grants eliminated or cut.
Most for-profit colleges lose state grants
The California Student Aid Commission released a list of colleges that are no longer eligible
to receive Cal Grants under tougher standards passed by the Legislature and signed by
Democratic Gov.Jerry Brown in June.The rules were adopted to save an estimated $55 million

FRESNO As California grows warmer,
nowhere will the increased temperatures be
starker than its arid Central Valley, where
farmers will have to consider whether the
crops grown today will survive in a harsher
Rising sea levels will also flood coastal
airports and municipal sewage systems,
while earlier springs will hasten snow melt
and reduce the states capacity to generate
hydroelectric power in the summer months
when its needed most.
A report released Tuesday by the state is
an attempt to study where California is most
vulnerable to the impacts of climate change
so future planning decisions can take the
conclusions into consideration.
We accept that cigarette smoking causes
cancer and that HIV causes AIDS, and as a
state we make decisions based on those sci-
entific considerations, said Ken Alex, sen-
ior policy adviser to Gov. Jerry Brown, We
are not in the same place with climate
Its a follow-up to a 2009 report that said
climate change already is happening across
the state. This report is designed to tell citi-
zens what that change might mean to them,
said Susanne C. Moser, one of 120 scientists
who contributed.
If we assume a particular scenario of
greenhouse gas emissions, how likely will a
certain amount of sea level rise occur? How
likely is it that we will still see freezing tem-
peratures in the future? Moser said,
explaining the reports objectives.
The report says that temperatures
statewide are up 1.7 degrees since 1895. By
2050 California is expected to be 2.7-
degrees warmer than it was in 2000.
A warmer climate means fewer nights
below freezing, which farmers in the San
Joaquin Valley would want to consider when
planting or replacing fruit trees that depend
on chill hours, the report said.

WASHINGTON Republicans
accused President Barack Obama of try-
ing to keep middle-class Americans in
the dark about whether theyll lose their
jobs from impending defense cuts as a
Labor Department memo cautioning
contractors about layoff notices set off
political recriminations.
The president doesnt want people
reading about pink slips in the weeks
before his election, so the White House is
telling people to keep the effects of these
cuts a secret until after the election,
Senate Minority Leader Mitch
McConnell, R-Ky., said Tuesday in a
speech on the Senate oor.
The memo advised federal contractors
major defense rms among them
that they do not have to warn their
employees about potential layoffs from
the automatic, across-the-board budget
cuts that kick in Jan. 2. A law, known as
the WARN Act, says those notices would
have to go out 60 days in advance, arriv-
ing in mailboxes four days before the
Nov. 6 election.
The guidance letter said it would be
inappropriate for employers to send
such warnings because it is still specula-
tive if and where the $110 billion in auto-
matic cuts might occur. About half the
cuts would be in defense.
The White House did make clear
Tuesday that Obama would exercise his
authority under last years budget law
and exempt military personnel from any
automatic defense cuts.
Pressed on the issue Tuesday, Labor
Department spokeswoman Elizabeth
Alexander said there is an insufcient
factual basis for employers to form a
business judgment about whether or not
their contracts will be affected.
Democrats insist the cuts could be
averted if Republicans were willing to
consider tax increases on high-wage
earners as part of a budget compromise.
By refusing to replace cuts with rev-
enues, Republicans are putting million-
aires ahead of the middle class and the
military, Senate Majority Leader Harry
Reid, D-Nev., told reporters.
In the midst of the tiff, the White
House told agency ofcials Tuesday to
continue normal spending and opera-
tions since more than five months
remain for Congress to act to avert the
automatic across-the-board cuts known
as sequestration.
Acting White House budget chief
Jeffrey Zients said Obama remains con-
dent that lawmakers will act to address
the automatic spending cuts, which he
described as highly destructive. Zients
said in a memo to agency heads that the
budget ofce will be consulting with
agencies on how the spending cuts would
have to be implemented if Congress and
Obama together fail to stop them.
Separately, Zients sent a letter to
Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, saying
that the president would spare military
personnel from the automatic reductions.
This is considered to be in the nation-
al interest to safeguard the resources nec-
essary to compensate the men and
women serving to defend our nation and
to maintain the force levels required for
national security, Zients wrote. It is
recognized that this action would
increase the sequester in other defense

The city of San Carlos
announced Tuesday it is increasing
traffic enforcement by budgeting in
an extra full-time deputy, bringing
the total to two. The deputies will
use a zero tolerance approach to
traffic violations, with a concentrat-
ed effort against speeding, failure to yield to pedestrians,
cellphone use and distracted driving, according to the city.
The San Carlos Police Bureau also plans a heavy empha-
sis on traffic safety when school reopens in August.
The San Mateo County Community College District
will award a contract for the College of San Mateo North
Gateway part II project during a special meeting
Thursday. The board will consider awarding a contract,
not to exceed $7.587 million, to Interstate Grading and
Paving Inc.
The two phased, state-funded project, CSM North
Gateways, addresses potential life-safety hazards by abat-
ing hazardous materials, demolishing seismically unsafe
structures,and replacing aged electrical infrastructure on
the northern end of the College of San Mateo campus.
This second and final phase of the project includes dem-
olition of buildings 21 through 29, on-site recycling of
building demolition materials, reconstruction of parking
lots, pedestrian pathways and stormwater management
infrastructure and landscaping.
The project provides accessible access to the north cam-
pus, and energy efficient LED lighting that will reduce
operational costs in terms of energy required to power the
lights and a reduction in future maintenance costs, while
supporting a green technology. Programmatically, the
lighting controls will improve conditions for astronomy
events and activities in the adjacent Science Building 36.
The project was approved and funded by the state for its
portion. The district is now prepared to award the contract
for the North Gateway Part II Project.
The board meets 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 2 at the
District Office, 3401 CSM Drive, San Mateo.

NEW YORK Mitt Romney has
been on the national political stage for
nearly a decade through two presi-
dential bids, countless campaign events
and millions spent on TV ads. But the
likely Republican presidential nominee
still isnt well-known to most voters.
So now hes trying to x that.
With less than 100 days until the Nov.
6 election, Romney is starting to intro-
duce himself to them in earnest
through a combination of carefully
selected media appearances and biogra-
phical ads before President Barack
Obamas efforts to dene him in a nega-
tive light cripple his candidacy.
I got the chance to start my own busi-
ness ... I went off to have the chance at
running the Olympics in Salt Lake City
in 2002 ... The real experience was in
Massachusetts, the former governor
says in a new television commercial
released Tuesday that features him on
the campaign trail, in factories and with
his wife, Ann, by his side. I want to use
those experiences to help Americans
have a better future.
Until now, Romney has emphasized
his record at the private equity rm Bain
Capital, giving Obama and other
Democrats the chance to portray him in
their ads as an out-of-touch corporate
raider and job killer. The new ad is an
effort to deect that barrage by letting
him round out that biography by touch-
ing aspects of it that he hasnt stressed in
the past.
The ad marked the start of a new phase
for the Republican presidential candi-
date as he looks to move from a seven-
day, three-nation trip abroad and into a
period where the media glare will shine
even brighter as he prepares to announce
his vice presidential running mate in the
run-up to the GOP convention where
hell accept the partys presidential nom-
In what may be his most extensive
series of national broadcast interviews
this campaign, Romney and his wife
spent much of the trip answering ques-
tions from TV anchors on everything
from her part ownership of a horse com-
peting in the Olympics to whether they
were each others true love (The answer?
In one appearance, Romney touched
on the challenge he faces in introducing
himself to voters as the clock ticks down
on the campaign and he runs against an
incumbent who is universally recog-
nized and generally liked by most voters.

AUSTIN, Texas Tea Party darling
Ted Cruz trounced the Republican estab-
lishment favorite, Lt. Gov. David
Dewhurst, in Texas runoff election
Tuesday, winning the GOP nomination to
replace retiring U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey
Hutchison in an outcome that gured to
reverberate far beyond the Lone Star
The race had been closely watched
nationally, seen as one of Americas
most-vivid contrasts between the GOP
mainstream and the Tea Party. But as
results began to pour in, it turned out to be
no contest with Cruz grabbing early
leads in key cities around the state where
Dewhurst had once enjoyed stronger
name recognition, fundraising and politi-
cal organization just
weeks earlier.
Overseeing the
state Senate from the
powerful lieutenant
governors post since
2003, Dewhurst was
long considered a
slam dunk in his race
with Cruz, the son of
a Cuban immigrant
and former state solicitor general.
Dewhurst had the endorsement of much
of Texas Republican mainstream, includ-
ing Gov. Rick Perry, who despite his
failed run for president was still widely
popular back home. He also had a $200
million personal fortune he could dip into
at will and did, loaning his Senate cam-
paign at least $24.5 million.
But Cruz has a ery stage presence that
made Tea Party supporters across the
state swoon, and received millions from
national, conservative organizations
which targeted Dewhurst as too moder-
ate. Even though the lieutenant governor
oversaw some of the most-conservative
state legislative sessions in Texas history
and helped speed the passage of laws
requiring women to undergo a sonogram
before having an abortion and voters to
show identication at the polls, he also
occasionally compromised with
Democratic lawmakers to keep the leg-
islative agenda moving.
Meanwhile, former Democratic state
Rep. Paul Saddler easily bested perennial
candidate Grady Yarbrough to capture his
partys nomination and face Cruz in
Novembers general election, but Cruz
begins that race the overwhelming

Americans have never heard of
Virgil Goode, a former party-
switching congressman with a dis-
tinctive Virginia drawl who conceiv-
ably could decide the presidential
election. But he is well known to
President Barack Obamas team of
political advisers.
Goode served six terms in
Congress from Virginia and is gath-
ering signatures to appear on the
ballot in his home state as the presi-
dential candidate from the
Constitution Party. Hes already on
the ballot in more than a dozen other
states with an anti-immigration,
pro-term limit platform he hopes
makes a dent with the electorate. Its
not likely to be much of a dent, but
enough in Virginia for Obama cam-
paign ofcials to take close notice of
his potentially helpful candidacy.
Goode is one of several third-
party presidential candidates who
will appear on ballots across the
country this fall. But within the
Obama camp he is considered one
of two who could tilt the race by
pulling votes away from Republican
challenger Mitt Romney. The other
is Libertarian Party candidate Gary
Johnson, a former two-term
Republican governor of New
Mexico whose presence on the bal-
lot could make a difference in the
presidential contest in states such as
New Mexico and Colorado.
Neither candidate is considered
enough of a national threat to draw
comparisons to Ross Perot, whose
independent campaign in 1992
attracted nearly 19 percent of the
vote and whom President George
H.W. Bush still blames for costing
him his re-election. But Democrats
see Goode and Johnson as this
years Ralph Nader, whom they still
blame for Al Gores loss to George
W. Bush in 2000. Naders liberal
Green Party candidacy only attract-
ed 2.7 percent of the national vote,
but in decisive Florida, his total was
greater than the 537 votes that sepa-
rated Bush from Gore.

administration expressed renewed
frustration with Pakistan on
Tuesday, urging its reluctant coun-
terterrorism ally to break remaining
links between its security services
and the Haqqani network and stem
the ow of bomb-making material
into Afghanistan.
A State Department report credit-
ed Pakistans government with tak-
ing action against al-Qaida last year,
even though the United States acted
unilaterally in the commando opera-
tion that killed Osama bin Laden in
Pakistan. It called Islamabads
attempts weaker when it came to
snuffing out groups such as the
Haqqani network and Laskhar e-
At a Senate conrmation hearing,
the diplomat nominated to be
Americas next ambassador to
Pakistan said that getting Islamabad
to crack down on the Haqqani net-
work would be his most urgent
This will be a primary focus of
my activities and diplomatic
engagement with Pakistanis, to
encourage further measures against
the Haqqani network, further
squeezing of the Haqqani network,
Richard Olson said.
The Haqqani network, a sub-
sidiary of the Taliban, is based in
northern Pakistan but moves into
Afghanistan to launch attacks on
U.S. and NATO forces before
returning to Pakistani territory. The
Pakistanis say theyre doing all they
can to rein in the Haqqanis, but ele-
ments in the Pakistani intelligence
and military communities maintain
relations with him to hedge their
bets for when the United States
leaves Afghanistan in 2014.
Olson also commended Pakistan
for helping the U.S. so that we are
virtually within grasp of defeating
al-Qaida as an organization, but
said far more could be done to com-
bat the threat of the Haqqanis.
Congress has been pressuring the
Obama administration to slap the
terrorist label on the network. By
voice vote last week, the Senate
approved a bill that would require
the secretary of State to report to
Congress on whether the Haqqani
network meets the criteria to be des-
ignated a foreign terrorist organiza-
tion and if not, to explain why. The
report is due within 30 days of the
president signing the measure.

San Mateo pensions
Upon reading the article City,
employees restructure contract in the
July 31 edition of the Daily Journal, I
admired San Mateo Mayor Brandt
Grottes gracious recognition of San
Mateo workers for making concessions
in their upcoming contract.
Conversely, I was utterly abbergasted
by SMCEA President Robert Finks
comment that he was unable to thank the
city for this outcome because that
would be like thanking the cop who
gives you the ticket. Really? How
appallingly arrogant, selsh and mis-
Reading further, I was shocked to nd
that 76 percent of San Mateo city
expenses are comprised of salaries and
benets $112 million annually. So the
value of the recent concession is about .5
percent or $700,000 per year. Not even a
drop in the bucket of necessary city, state
and federal compensation and pension
overhaul. When will Fink and all labor
representatives, as well as our governor
and city leaders realize that we are all in
this together and ghting to increase the
$174,000 salary and benets of a city
librarian is not only unsustainable but
It is courageous pension reform lead-

Sheriffs Office should not
determine pretrial releases
Regarding the story, Grand jury:
Electronic monitoring could reduce jail
overcrowding in the July 28 edition of
the Daily Journal, pretrial releases raise
complicated legal and policy issues in
every case. Our concern is that many
judicial release orders exhibit confusion
about or disregard the distinction
between pretrial release and post-convic-
tion punishment.
The Sheriffs Ofce should not be
determining pretrial releases and should
not act as a social worker or an agent of
public retribution. Bail eases overcrowd-
ing. Bail bonds guarantee that defendants
stand trail and are held to answer for the
crimes they are accused of.
In the Department of Justice report
Pretrial Release of Felony Defendants
in State Courts it is shown that bail
bonds are more effective in reducing the
number of people who fail to appear in
courts and twice as effective in making
those who abscond to return than any
other form of pretrial release.
A bail bond involves family members
to co-sign a contract. Family involve-
ment increases accountably for individu-
als to make court appearances and posi-
tively inuences their behavior while out
on bail. Bail agents have a signicant
nancial incentive to ensure defendants
are returned to court. Bail is a private
pay system that operates at no cost to the
taxpayers or the county.
It is the sheriffs job as our chief law
enforcement ofcial to ensure our county
is safe. If the Sheriffs Ofce opposed
using electronic monitoring for pre-trial
detainees due to an increase in violent
crimes in the county, you can be sure
there is good reason.

re our countys special dis-
tricts heading in the right
direction? A lot depends on
who you ask and for which district.
However, those interested in special
districts and the work they do in the
county have an opportunity to put their
hat in the ring.
This November, there are open seats
on the Peninsula Health Care District,
the Sequoia Healthcare District and the
San Mateo County Harbor District.
Each have different missions, serve dif-
ferent areas and determine the best use
of our collective tax dollars.
Some believe health care districts
have outlived their purpose in that they
no longer operate hospitals in their
area. Some believe they are important
stop-gaps in public health by providing
an elected body to determine how the
money they collect is to be distributed
in a certain area. The Harbor District
oversees two of the countys harbors
at Pillar Point and Oyster Point, and
oversee management and development
at each.
As of this writing, there are ve can-
didates running for three open seats on
the San Mateo County Harbor District
Board of Commissioners. That should
make for some lively debate and analy-
sis of the myriad issues the district
faces. Is the current structure sound?
Are the development plans in place the
right ones? With the ferry terminal
opening at Oyster Point in June and
service up and running, there could be
opportunities for development at the
South San Francisco site. With salmon
season and shermen back to work,
there could be opportunities to give
Pillar Point north of Half Moon Bay a
new look while preserving its unique
businesses and regional draw. Has the
Board of Commissioners made the right
decisions and planned well for the
future? Through a campaign for the
three open seats, there is an opportunity
to nd out if experience on the com-
mission outweighs new ideas, or the
other way around.
However, there are two open seats on
both the Sequoia Healthcare District
Board and the Peninsula Health Care
District and so far, only the incumbents
have expressed an interest in running.
Considering the level of recent attention
given to those districts and the role they
serve in the community, that seems
unusual. Both have multi-million budg-
ets and allocate money to charitable
causes the board determines are worthy.
Recently, both have contributed money
to the countys Health System, with
Peninsula announcing last week it
approved a $4.6 million grant to sup-
port health care to low-income, unin-
sured adults living in the district based
in Burlingame. This came after pressure
was put on the district to open up its
reserves. In 2010 numbers, Sequoia,
based in Redwood City, had approxi-
mately $19 million in assets, collected
$7 million in taxes and awarded $8 mil-
lion in grants. Peninsula Health Care
District had $46 million in reserves,
collected approximately $4 million in
taxes and granted $2 million. This latest
grant to the Health System adds to the
recent tally and it is important to note
that Peninsula worked out a deal with
Sutter Health to obtain a brand-new
facility in Burlingame paid for with no
taxpayer expense. The large reserve is
needed, district ofcials contend, in
case Sutter ever defaults on the hospi-
tal. But is that necessary? Is the recent
grant sufcient? Is it too much? Are
both boards balancing the needs of their
electorate in their respective districts
with the need to provide indigent care
that currently falls on the county? And
how are both districts preparing for the
impact of the federal Patient Protection
and Affordable Care Act? Without a
contested election, these are questions
that may not be asked in a truly public
forum that such a democratic activity
provides. And it would be a shame if
there is not one single person in each
district who would be willing to step up
and challenge the status quo and offer
their perspective to a challenged elec-
There is still time. The deadline for
candidate lings is Aug. 10.

Equal opportunity?
ver the last 25 years we have seen the future,
and it is not a wholesome one. If we so fer-
vently wish for our children to grow up in a
civilized society, and if we
seek to live in one, lets face
facts. It will not happen
unless we dedicate more of
ourselves to our children.
Amitai Etzione, Children of
the Universe.
In a recent column, New
York Times columnist David
Brooks wrote about concerns
that this nation ignores the
concept of equal opportunity.
He refers to a study by
Harvard political scientist
Robert Putnam that concluded
that the children of the more
afuent and less afuent are raised in starkly different ways
and have different opportunities and the problem is getting
worse. In thinking about those less afuent, he wrote: virtu-
ally all our major social institutions have failed them fam-
ily, friends, church, school and community.
And why are so many children less afuent? One impor-
tant reason is the number who are born to single mothers
41 percent up from 17 percent three decades ago 4 per-
cent in 1960. According to Child Trends, a Washington
research group, less than 10 percent of these births are to
college-educated women. For women (and girls) with high
school degrees or less, the gure is nearly 60 percent. Many
of these babies arrive because of indifference and ignorance
or because their mothers lifestyle is so distorted and
unhealthy that, to them, a pregnancy is just another result of
her irresponsibility that will be dealt with later. As Peter
Edelman wrote in his book, So rich, So Poor: The two
biggest factors in the story of poverty over the last 40 years
are the change in the American economy and the signicant
increase in the number of families headed by single moth-
The less afuent are more likely to have lived with physi-
cal, psychological and/or emotional deprivation and to have
become disheartened and/or cynical. They obviously give no
thought to how their behavior may affect others, including
future offspring (One example of this is a very sad report on
television recently that informed us of the great increase in
the number of babies born addicted to painkillers like
OxyContin). Then there are those who have heard from the
pope that using contraceptives is a sin and who have not
learned from anyone else that having a child that cannot be
cared for adequately is a much greater sin. And add the
fact that because so many working class jobs were decimat-
ed, many working class parents are too stressed to have the
energy, time or money to devote to their children.
As a result, many children born under such circumstances
have a couple of strikes against them. Besides the inability
of their parents to support them adequately, the parents and
the child are more likely to be malnourished, compromised
by drugs and/or alcohol and chemicals in their environment.
Our major social institutions, especially the family and the
school, need to be adequately supported by government so
their lives can be improved.
All social institutions have an important responsibility to
drum into the heads of our young that it isnt cool to casu-
ally procreate. And they must emphasize the terric respon-
sibility that raising a child entails. And all parents must learn
it is their duty to do their best to give their kids the kind of
love and support they need so they believe in themselves and
look optimistically to the future.
David Brooks approaches the problem politically:
Liberals are going to have to be willing to champion norms
that marriage should come before child rearing and be
morally tough about it. Conservatives are going to have to be
willing to accept tax increases or benet cuts so that more
can be spent on the earned-income tax credit and other pro-
grams that benet the working class.
Political candidates will have to spend less time trying to
exploit class divisions and more time trying to remedy them
less time calling their opponents out-of-touch elitists, and
more time to come up with agendas that address the prob-
lem. Its politically tough to do that, but the alternative is
national suicide.
When we deprive children physically, intellectually and/or
emotionally, we are creating dysfunction that will come back
to haunt us. A government focused so strongly on increasing
the advantages of the wealthy and so obsessed with the mili-
tary is destined to increase the gap between the more afu-
ent and less afuent to the point of serious dysfunction
and unrest. The concept of equal opportunity will evaporate.
Our inability and/or unwillingness to see how our decisions
and actions today will affect tomorrow, plus our cultural
worship of power, wealth and celebrity is the outcome of the
collapse of intelligence, integrity and the antithesis of wis-

NEW YORK Stocks ended slightly
lower Tuesday as investors held back
ahead of three critical events this week:
policy meetings at both the Federal
Reserve and the European Central Bank
and a closely watched report on jobs in
the U.S.
The Dow Jones industrial average lost
64.33 points to close at 13,008.68. The
Standard & Poors 500 edged down 5.98
points to 1,379.32, and the Nasdaq com-
posite lost 6.32 points to 2,939.52.
The Federal Reserve, which started a
two-day policy meeting Tuesday, had
appeared to be moving toward announc-
ing some kind of new step to energize the
U.S. economy. But there were big ques-
tions over whether it will do so this week.
Thats because some economists
believe the Fed isnt convinced that the
U.S. economic slowdown is pronounced
enough yet to require more economic
stimulus. A slew of recent data that has
shown weakness in the economy has
been offset by some pockets of strength.
Tuesday was no exception.
The Commerce Department reported
that spending by the U.S. consumer was
unchanged in June. But personal income
edged up 0.5 percent.
If incomes are rising, but people
arent spending, it tells you that the con-
sumer has some ammunition for more
spending during the crucial back-to-
school season, said Quincy Krosby,
market strategist with Prudential
There were other positive numbers.
The Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller
home price index released Tuesday
showed that prices increases in all of the
20 cities it tracks. The Conference Board
said Consumer Confidence Index
increased to its highest reading since
April, and better than economists had
Investors were also closely watching
for the outcome from the European
Central Banks meeting on Thursday to
discuss concrete steps to help countries
with crippling debt.
It will be the rst meeting after ECB
President Mario Draghi said last
Thursday that the central bank would do
whatever it takes to preserve the euro,
sending markets sharply higher. Over the
following days, the leaders of Germany,
France and Italy also said they would do
all they can to protect the 17-country cur-
rency union.

SAN JOSE An attorney for Apple
told a jury Tuesday that bitter rival
Samsung faced two options to compete
in the booming cellphone market after
Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone to crit-
ical acclaim in 2007: Innovate or copy.
Samsung chose to copy, making its
smartphones and computer tablets ille-
gal knockoffs of Apples popular prod-
ucts, attorney Harold McElhinny
Samsung has copied the entire
design and user experience of Apples
iPhone and iPad, McElhinny told a jury
during his opening statement at the
patent trial involving the worlds two
largest makers of cellphones.
In his opening statement, Samsung
attorney Charles Verhoeven countered
that the South Korean company employs
thousands of designers and spends bil-
lions of dollars on research and develop-
ment to create new products.
Samsung is not some copyist, some
Johnny-come-lately doing knockoffs,
he said.
Verhoeven asserted that Apple is like
many other companies that use similar
technology and designs to satisfy con-
sumer demands for phones and other
devices that play music and movies and
take photographs.
For example, he said several other
companies and inventors have filed
patent applications for the rounded, rec-
tangular shape associated with Apple
Everyone is out there with that basic
form factor, Verhoeven said. There is
nothing wrong with looking at what
your competitors do and being inspired
by them.
A verdict in Apples favor could lead
to banishment of Samsungs Galaxy
products from the U.S. market, said
Mark A. Lemley, a professor and direc-
tor of the Stanford Program in Law,
Science, and Technology.

GMs ads arent getting the job done
DETROIT General Motors ads just arent getting the job
Since the company left bankruptcy three years ago, its ads
havent boosted sales much. The companys biggest campaign,
Chevy Runs Deep, has failed to generate buzz. And now, GM
has forced out its star marketing chief just as it launches two
key vehicles.
The lackluster ads and loss of marketing head Joel Ewanick
raise doubts about GMs ability to improve sales longer term.
Experts say that even though its making better cars and trucks,
advertising has failed to get the message across. Despite
spending upwards of $4 billion a year on marketing, GM has-
nt been able to dent the perception that other brands are bet-
GM continues to have an image problem, which really isnt
fair because their products are vastly improved, says Rebecca
Lindland, an analyst with IHS Automotive, an industry con-
sulting rm.
GMs U.S. sales rose just 4 percent in the rst half of the
year, lagging the 15-percent gain for the industry. The growth
is paltry compared with increases of more than 30 percent at
brands like Volkswagen and Chrysler.
Google buying social-media startup Wildfire
NEW YORK Google is buying a company that special-
izes in social media marketing as it intensies competition
with Facebook for ad dollars and attention.
The company, Redwood City-based Wildre, helps busi-
nesses such as Cirque du Soleil and Spotify manage social
media efforts across the Internet.
Its an important area for Google as people spend more time
on social networks such as Facebook and as advertisers follow
them. Googles social network, Google Plus, hasnt had the
traction that Facebook Inc. enjoys. Wildre will let Google
play a role whether the ad campaign is on Google Plus,
Facebook, Twitter or elsewhere.
Wildres co-founders and other staff will join Google Inc.

LONDON One by one, the Americans thundered down the run-
way, soared high above the vault and slammed into the mat.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
When the reworks were over, so was everybody elses chance for
the gold medal.
The Americans lived up to their considerable hype and then some
Tuesday night, routing silver medalist Russia and everybody else on
their way to their rst Olympic title in womens gymnastics since
1996. Their score of 183.596 was a whopping ve points better than
Russias, and set off a debate over whether this is the best U.S. team
of all time. Romania won the bronze.
Others might disagree. The 96 team might disagree. But this is
the best team, U.S. coach John Geddert said.
The Americans didnt botch a single routine, and all but three of
their 12 scores were 15.0 or higher. The Russians, on the other hand,
had just one score above 15 in their last two events as they unraveled
down the stretch. They sat on the sidelines snifing and watching
glumly as the Americans turned their nal event, oor exercise, into
a coronation.
When the nal standings ashed, chants of U-S-A! U-S-A!
rocked the arena, and the U.S. women, who backed up to get a better
view of the scoreboard, held up their index ngers for the cameras
in case anyone had a doubt.
The feeling was incredible, world champion Jordyn Wieber said.
To have this gold medal around your neck, its really an indescrib-
able feeling.
The Americans had come into the last two Olympics as world
champions, only to leave without the gold. But national team coordi-
nator Martha Karolyi recognized six months ago that this was a spe-
cial group, stronger than previous U.S. teams.
Its not just the titles these Americans have won, though there are
plenty: last years team gold at the world championships, along with
Wiebers all-around crown and McKayla Maroneys title on vault.

While the majority of incoming freshman
are spending the last remaining days of sum-
mer freedom worrying about their rst days as
high school students, Hillsboroughs
Evalynna Ong is busy jumping into the Bay.
The 14 year old who will call Burlingame
High School home in a couple of weeks,
recently competed in the Orca Alcatraz
Challenge a 1.5-mile swim in the San
Francisco Bay that begins at Alcatraz and n-
ishes at the east beach of Crissy Field located
in the Golden Gate National Recreation
Areas Presidio Park.
Not only did she nish the race, but Ong
performed exceptionally well. She placed sev-
enth overall, nishing with a time of 39:55.
Her mark was second
among females doing just
the swim and she was rst
in her age class (13-15
years old).
I was looking online
for some open-water
swims to do and it came
up, Ong said. I thought it
would be fun.
Ong said that when she
saw the Alcatraz challenge, she knew it was
something she had to do and wasnt necessar-
ily intimidated about the challenge.
I was pretty nervous, Ong said about the
last couple of moments aboard the ferry that
escorted the swimmers to the start point. But

The summer baseball season came to an end
Monday as the San Mateo American Legion
Post 82 Shockers went 1-2 in the American
Legion State Tournament in Yountville.
The end of the Post 82 season ends the sum-
mer season which also saw the San Mateo
White Sox and Redwood City Celtics seasons
end in the Palomino Region 8 tournament last
Post 82, which qualied for the state tour-
nament for the eighth time in 10 years, was
no-hit by Faireld in a 4-0 loss in its opener
Saturday, before bouncing back to beat Vista-
Murietta, 8-7, in 15 innings Sunday. The
Shockers season ended with a 3-0 loss to
Lakewood Monday.
Both teams we lost to were in the champi-
onship game (Tuesday), said Post 82 assis-
tant coach Rick Lavezzo. It was a tough way
to end the summer, but at least the second
game we rallied and came back and never
quit. That was worth the trip.
Daniel Madigan did everything he could on
the mound to give San Mateo a chance to beat
Faireld in the tournament opener. Madigan
limited the Expos to just four hits in eight
innings of work, with only two of the four
runs earned.
But even if Madigan had allowed only one
run it still would have been enough for
Faireld, which had Anthony Arias on the
mound. The Oregon State-bound lefty domi-
nated the Shockers lineup, not only posting a
no hitter but striking out 16 San Mateo batters.
We knew he was a pretty good lefty and he
was on a pitch count, around 100, Lavezzo
said. The rst two innings, it looked like he
was going to go ve.

With the new school year approaching, the Menlo College
wrestling team is looking to add depth, according to fourth-
year head coach Joey Martinez.
Its with that intention the Oaks announced the latest addi-
tions to the wrestling team a mixture of experience and
I was just looking for some balance with the older JC
guys that we recruit and the new guys, the freshman,
Martinez said. Depth was the big thing. Getting more depth
because with wrestling you can never have enough guys,
theyre always in and out of the lineup. So having good
depth helps your lineup and also helps with practice because
you can mix and match different styles with different guys
and give different looks to everyone so it isnt so stagnant
practicing with the same guy getting used to how they
work. It changes things up in that sense.
Chris Burnett, Richard Ortiz and Edgar Paez highlight the
newest wave of signees for Menlo, who ended the last sea-
son with a top-20 ranking (15th) before bowing out in the
postseason tournament.
Burnett is set to enter his Menlo tenure as a sophomore
after spending a year at Yakima Valley Community College,
where he was a 2012 NJCAA Academic All-American.
While attending Sunset High School in Portland, Burnett set
the record for most team points scored in a season. The
incoming sophomore is expected to compete in either the
174 or 184-pound weight class.
We need both weight classes, Martinez said. So, if we
can put him in the lineup where hes going to be more effec-
tive for us, then thats where were going to put him at. Hes
been working out this offseason, so I dont know how big
hes gotten.
Paez is another JC recruit. The incoming junior was a two-
time State Qualier, one-time State Placer and Coaches
Award recipient while grappling at Modesto Junior College.
I think Edgar and Chris, theyre junior college kids, so
theyre going to bring experience to the team, having wres-
tled in college a couple of years already, Martinez said.
Im hoping they can come in and make an impact and do
well this year.
Ortiz will suit up in the Oaks after a resounding success at
the high school level. The incoming freshman grappled at
Crespi Carmelite High School in Encino, where he was a
state qualier, a two-time Southern Section Masters meet
qualier and a two-time Coaches Award recipient.
Im hoping he can come in and get on board with us as
soon as possible, Martinez said. Get those freshman jitters
out of the way and vie for a starting role in the lineup. Ortiz
is expected to wrestle at the 157-pound weight class.
We have to target kids that t us in every which way,

Baseballs haves picked up more players from the have-nots
at Tuesdays trade deadline, when Ryan Dempster was dealt
from the Chicago Cubs to the Texas Rangers and Shane
Victorino, Hunter Pence and Jonathan Broxton all wound up on
new teams.
Matt Garza, Josh Johnson and Joe Blanton stayed put for
now as the window closed for clubs to make trades without
having players pass through waivers.
Four days after the AL West rival Los Angeles Angels
acquired former Cy Young Award winner Zack Geinke, the
Rangers obtained Dempster for inelder Christian Villanueva
and pitcher Kyle Hendricks. Texas also acquired catcher
Geovany Soto from the Cubs for right-hander Jake Brigham.
Its a great opportunity over there, Dempster said. Its not
going to be easy. There are a lot of teams out there that are real-
ly good. I think they have as good a chance as anybody.
Dempster, who will replace Roy Oswalt in the rotation, had
power to block deals and refused to approve a trade to Atlanta
last week.
I just never said no, he explained. The last few days, I had
to give it a lot more thought to the teams I might possibly be
traded to.
Dempster was 5-5 with a 2.25 ERA in 16 starts for the Cubs
and can become a free agent after the season.
Hes a veteran. Hes been through some wars before, said
Rangers general manager Jon Daniels, who team has won two
straight AL pennants but no World Series.
The faded Philadelphia Phillies, last in the NL East and their
run ve straight division titles all but over, sent Victorino to the
Los Angeles Dodgers for right-handers Josh Lindblom and
Ethan Martin and cash. They also shipped Pence to San
Francisco for outelder Nate Schierholtz, catching prospect
Tommy Joseph and right-hander Seth Rosin.
Cincinnati received Broxton from Kansas City, also a cellar
When youre in last place, you can try any damn thing,
Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. You dont have nothing
to lose.
The deals capped a busy two-week period that also saw
Ichiro Suzuki, Hanley Ramirez, Anibal Sanchez and Francisco
Liriano change teams as general managers assessed whether
they had a chance to make this years expanded 10-team play-
offs or whether to focus on rebuilding for 2013.
After winning a franchise-record 102 games last year, the
Phillies never recovered from Ryan Howards stumble on the
last out of last years NL division series against St. Louis.
Howard, the 2006 NL MVP, tore an Achilles tendon and didnt
come off the disabled list until July 6. All-Star second baseman
Chase Utley missed the rst 76 games because of a chronic
problem in both knees.
Pence is batting .271 with 17 homers and 59 RBIs this sea-
son. He lls a major need for the Giants, giving them a right-
handed hitter with power.
I dont think anyone really anticipated the season thats
gone on, Pence said in Washington after the trade. It was the
perfect storm of injuries and things didnt go right for us, so
thats the way the business of the game is and you have to
understand that. Everything is understood. The Phillies are
going in a different direction. We had a great run at it. Now Im
going a different way.
Victorino, nicknamed the Flyin Hawaiian, is batting .261
with nine homers, 40 RBIs and 24 steals. He helped the Phillies
win ve straight NL East titles and the 2008 World Series
Mahalo to the (at)Phillies and the AMAZING fans in Philly
for a great run. A lot of unforgettable memories in this city. Ill
miss you guys! Victorino wrote on Twitter.
While getting rid of stars, the Phillies held on to Cliff Lee
and Blanton. After jettisoning Ramirez, Sanchez and Omar
Infante as the deadline approached, the Miami Marlins traded
pitcher Edward Mujica to St. Louis for inelder and sent for-
mer All-Star rst baseman Gaby Sanchez and right-hander
Kyle Kaminska to Pittsburgh for outelder Gorkys Hernandez
and a 2013 draft pick.
Washington has emerged with young talents Stephen
Strasburg and Bryce Harper and leads the NL East as the
Nationals try to bring postseason play to the capital for the rst
time since 1933.
Our division has undergone a real sort of metamorphosis,
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said.
Houston and the nearly as awful Cubs also shed salaries. Jed
Lowrie at $1.15 million is now the highest-paid player on the
Astros, who started the season with a payroll of nearly $61 mil-
Chicago, in its rst season under new baseball head Theo
Epstein, also dealt pitcher Paul Maholm and outelder Reed
Johnson to Atlanta on Monday.
NL Central-leading Cincinnati, hopeful of just its second
postseason appearance since 1995, got Broxton from Kansas
City the team with the worst record in the AL.
Im going somewhere where Im picking up 20-25 games,
Broxton said, noting the standings. I enjoyed my time here,
but this is part of baseball. So go over there and, hopefully we
can win a division over there.
Plenty of action at trade deadline

SAN FRANCISCO Tim Lincecum struck out seven in
seven innings and the San Francisco Giants took advantage of
a two-run error by shortstop Ruben Tejada to beat the New York
Mets 4-1 on Tuesday night and snap a season-long ve-game
losing streak.
Tejadas throw to rst on the back-end of a potential double-
play ball by Brandon Crawford in the second inning sailed into
New Yorks dugout fence. The error handed Matt Harvey (1-1)
a hard-luck loss and lifted San Franciscos spirits even more on
a day the franchise acquired two-time All-Star right elder
Hunter Pence from Philadelphia.
Justin Turners RBI double in the second was all the Mets
managed off Lincecum (5-11). The two-time NL Cy Young
Award winner allowed six hits and one walk in another step
toward turning around the worst season of his career.
Jeremy Affeldt pitched two scoreless innings for his second
save in three chances this season.
After almost a week of bad news, San Franciscos fortunes
started to change.
The Giants had not won since slugger Pablo Sandoval
strained his left hamstring last week. That landed the All-Star
third baseman on the 15-day disabled list while the rival Los
Angeles Dodgers who traded for Shane Victorino from the
Phillies and Hanley Ramirez from the Marlins turned the
NL West race into a virtual tie.
The Giants sent Nate Schierholtz and two minor leaguers to
Philadelphia for Pence just before the afternoon trade deadline.
The Phillies were in Washington, and Pence couldnt to make
it to San Francisco in time to be in the lineup.
No need on this night.
Turner doubled off the wall in left to drive home Scott
Hairston and give the Mets a 2-1 lead in the second inning.
Hairston, whose two home runs powered the Mets past San
Francisco 8-7 in 10 innings on Monday night, singled with one
out to jumpstart the offense again.
Defense failed New York this time.
After Justin Christian grounded into a force at home plate
with the bases loaded and no outs in the second, Brandon Belt
grounded into what appeared to be a routine double play.
Instead, Tejadas throw overshot rst baseman Ike Davis for an
error that put San Francisco ahead 2-1.

the other people who did it before me were
really nice and they talked me through it a lit-
tle bit. Most of them thought I was in college
or high school.
The waters in San Francisco bay are notori-
ous for their chilly conditions. And Ong said
she found out relatively quickly that her rst
dip in the Bay was nothing like anything she
had experienced before.
I was pretty excited, Ong said. The water
gave me a bit of a shake because it was pretty
cold. But then after that I just started swim-
ming and I was ne.
Ong said there was no real preparation for
the choppy waters of the bay. She said she
spent most of her time in the Burlingame pool
and participating in the junior lifeguard pro-
gram in Half Moon Bay.
On top of the challenging bay waters, Ong
had an unexpected visit from a jellysh some
500 meters from the nish line. Ong said the
sh stung her near the neck.
I thought maybe my wetsuit was chang,
Ong said. I tried to brush it off and put my
focus on what was really going on. Since the
water was so murky, I couldnt even see my
hand in front of me and didnt see the jelly-
sh. Im actually kind of glad I didnt because
if I had I think I would have started to freak
Ong fought through that run in and said she
took the advice from a meeting the day
before, using focus points along her route to
stay on course.
The whole time I was thinking, where am
I going to look next? Ong said, referencing
the Palace of Fine Arts and the St. Francis
Yacht Club.
It wasnt necessarily full-speed ahead,
Ong said. But I never got nervous or ques-
tioned what I was doing. I knew I was going
to nish it. When I was done, I was pretty
much glad it was over, because it was a long
race. I was really happy that I did it. I was
really surprised, I really didnt think I was
going to do as well as I did.
Ong will begin her time as a Panther in a
couple of weeks and doesnt put off the possi-
bility of tackling Alcatraz once again.
I did an open-water swim before, but that
was in a lake so this was my rst time in the
Bay, she said. And I was just kind of doing
it to try it out and maybe Ill have better goals
next time. This time it was just to nish
because this was my rst time. Im really
excited about going to high school and Im
denitely going to swim on the team.

Martinez said of the recruiting process. If
they dont t us in a certain way, it wont
work. We do a good job of going out and pick-
ing kids that t into our program, t into our
school, t into the student life and are able to
be successful. We do bring in quality kids and
thats one of the things we put a stamp on.
The new season begins in October and
Martinez said the future of Oaks wrestling
looks bright.
I would expect some good things to happen
this year, he said. We have a pretty big team,
its one of the biggest weve had the last four
years. Were going to see a good variety of dif-
ferent styles and different types of kids and its
going to be exciting. Its going to be very com-
petitive. Hopefully we can put everything
together and get to the national tournament. I
see some good things. All the guys are hard
workers, theyve been successful in the past.

Lavezzo said Arias threw 26 pitches in the rst
inning and 22 in the second, but after the second
inning, we didnt have a base runner, Lavezzo
said. This guy (Arias), you have to tip your cap.
Hes legit. He had giddyup on his fastball and had
three pitches and he could throw all three for
Despite the opening loss, Lavezzo said the team
was still in a good place mentally. He said they had
no time to dwell on the no hitter because there was
a quick turnaround time for the Shockers game
the next day.
Last year, we lost our rst game. Weve been in
this position before. We knew we could come back
and win a game, Lavezzo said. You cant focus
on it (the no hitter) too long. You just have to get
rid of it. Flush it and get rid of it.
the Shockers faced Vista-Murietta in their next
game and after seeing a 7-3 lead vanish, San
Mateo ended getting an 8-7 win in 15 innings.
While Madigan drove in the winning run on a
bases loaded, elders choice in the bottom of the
15th, it was pitcher Bradley Northnagel who gave
the Shockers the chance to win. He pitched the
nal six innings without giving up a hit.
It started to be like last year, Lavezzo said.
Last year, we were down 12-2 in the second
inning of an elimination game and we came back
to win that game 15-14 in the bottom of the ninth.
The win would be the high-water mark for the
2012 tournament, however, as Lakewood ended
the Shockers season with a 3-0 win Monday.
Once again, Post 82 got a tremendous start from
Danny Morales, who threw a complete game, six
Our guys didnt do bad, Lavezzo said. Our
pitching was right on the money.
Unfortunately, the San Mateo offense was not.
Sean Watkins had the biggest weekend for Post
82, going 4 for 8 in three games. In the 8-7 win
over Vista, Daniel Strupeni had two doubles and
two RBIs, while Neil Sterling added a double and
also drove in a run.
It was the only game, however, where the San
Mateo offense mounted much. Against
Lakewood, We never really mounted a threat,
Lavezzo said. We had three hits. We got two run-
ners to second.
Post 82 nished the season with a 23-19 record.
It wasnt a complete loss for San Mateo, how-
ever. Madigan, who still has one year to play at
College of San Mateo, was offered a scholarship
to Sacramento State University, following his per-
formance against Faireld. Lavezzo said Sonoma
State coaches told Madigan they would be inter-
ested in him after the 2013 season at CSM, but the
Sac State coaches jumped in and told Madigan
they wanted him now.
While Post 82 was being eliminated from the
American Legion State Tournament, the San
Mateo White Sox and Redwood City Celtics were
eliminated from the Palomino Region 8 tourna-
ment in Santa Cruz.
The White Sox compiled a 2-2 record in the
tournament. They dropped their opener, 2-1, to
host Santa Cruz, but rebounded to beat Redwood
City 4-1 and Los Gatos 2-1. San Mateos season
was ended by Los Altos-Mountain View in the
next round, losing 2-0.
Redwood City, on the other hand, went two and
a BBQ, losing 2-1 to eventual champion San Jose
PAL in the rst round and was eliminated in its 4-
1 loss to San Mateo.

OAKLAND James Shields pitched a
three-hitter, B.J. Upton drove in two runs and
the Tampa Bay Rays broke out of their pro-
longed offensive slump to beat the Oakland
Athletics 8-0 on Tuesday night.
Sam Fuld had three hits, Upton added two
and six different players drove in runs for the
Rays. Tampa Bay went into the game last in
the majors in hitting and had scored only nine
runs in its previous four games before knock-
ing As starter Tommy Milone around for two
runs in the second and three in the fth.
That was all Shields (9-7) needed to secure
his seventh career shutout.
He gave up a one-out single to Chris Carter
in the second, a leadoff single to Jemile Weeks
in the fourth and a two-out single to George
Kottaras in the eighth.
The game lasted just 2 hours, 37 minutes, a
sharp turnaround from 24 hours earlier when
the two teams played 15 innings in a marathon
that went 5 hours, 9 minutes and ended after
Shields, a 16-game winner in 2011 who was
the subject of trade rumors right up until
Tuesdays deadline, was a big reason for that.
He retired 14 straight at one point, faced just
two batters over the minimum and needed
only 98 pitches while winning for the rst
time in nearly a month.
Tampa Bay elded several inquiries for the
right-hander before the trade deadline before
deciding to hold onto him.
It turned out to be a wise decision, at least
for now.
As good as Shields was, Rays manager Joe
Maddon had to be even happier with the
Eight players had at least one hit and six
scored at least one run. The eight runs are also
the second most scored by Tampa Bay since
the All-Star break.
Oakland, which set a franchise record for
winning percentage in July, couldnt keep up
and fell to 13-4 since the break.
The As didnt get a runner past second and
were shut out for the 12th time this season.
Milone (9-8) was tagged for ve runs in six
innings against Tampa Bay. Milone, who
allowed only six earned runs over 59 2-3
innings in his previous eight starts at home,
struck out four and walked one.
The Rays scored twice in the second against
Milone. Upton had an RBI single to drive in
one while Desmond Jennings scored on a

NAPA In an offseason full of
changes for the Oakland Raiders,
perhaps the most positive develop-
ment has been the health of a return-
ing star.
Running back Darren McFadden
has opened training camp the way
he looked in offseason workouts,
showing the
speed and ability
that has made
him one of the
NFLs danger-
ous backs when
The problem
for McFadden
and the Raiders
(tied 23rd in AP
Pro 32) in recent
years has been his health as he has
missed 19 games in his rst four
seasons with foot, toe, shoulder,
knee and hamstring injuries.
If somebodys got an answer for
it I would love for them to tell me
because I need that, McFadden
said when asked how to avoid
McFaddens most recent injury
came last Oct. 23 while he was
catching a pass early in a loss to the
Kansas City Chiefs. The Raiders
originally described the injury as a
sprained right foot and designated
him week-to-week.
But it was actually a more serious
Lisfranc injury that cost him the
nal nine games of the season and
was a big reason why Oakland
missed the playoffs. McFadden said
it was April before he could run
again but he now looks like his for-
mer self.
I just want to come out there and
pick up where I left off, McFadden
said. The type of injury that I had
is something that set me down for a
long time. A lot of people may think
its hard to bounce back and get
back in the ow of things, but for
me, once Im out there on the eld,
I feel like Im at home, so I just get
out there and try to pick up where I
left off.
McFadden was off to a fast start
last season before the injury. He led
the NFL with 610 yards rushing
through six games and felt he had a
shot at an 1,800-yard season. He
also added 129 yards receiving and
scored ve total touchdowns as the
Raiders opened the season 4-2.
McFadden topped 100 yards rush-
ing eight times in a 15-game span
between 2010 and 2011 as he nal-
ly showed signs of being the big-
play back the Raiders thought they
found when they drafted him fourth
overall in 2008.
I think we all understand that
hes an explosive playmaker for us
and we need him to be healthy for
the entire season, coach Dennis
Allen said.
One of the biggest disappoint-
ments for the Raiders last season is
they never got the chance to see
their offense at full power.
McFadden got hurt early in the
game during which Carson Palmer
made his debut as quarterback.
Since Palmer had arrived in
Oakland only earlier that week, the
two never even got a chance to play
together on the practice eld until
this spring.

LONDON Its amazing how
much trouble can be stirred up in 140
But also how much intimacy, excite-
ment, global scope and, yes, general
zaniness. For better and for worse, the
2012 Olympics are being shaped, shak-
en and indisputably changed by a social
media revolution that four years ago in
Beijing was in its toddlerhood.
Four days into the games, weve
already seen (and this is but a partial
an athletes Twitter campaign
objecting to sponsorship restrictions
that went viral under the hashtag
a TV viewers uprising over
Olympic broadcaster NBCs decision
not to live stream the opening ceremo-
two athletes kicked out for racist
a fan arrested Tuesday after a series
of threatening posts, including one in
which he vowed to drown a British
diver, and another in which he told the
athlete he had failed his dead father by
not winning.
For Olympics organizers who pride
themselves on putting on a carefully
choreographed obsessively con-
trolled, some would say 17-day
show, the bursts of Twitter activity are
like gamma rays escaping from a solar
are. Theyre impossible to stop and
spellbinding to behold.
I dont think we would seek to con-
trol it, nor could we, said International
Olympic Committee spokesman Mark
Adams. He said more than 15 million
fans are following and participating in
the Olympic experience via Twitter and
other social media platforms, not to
mention a good proportion of the
10,800 athletes. Used the right way,
we embrace social media, he said.
And, if you look at the guidelines, we
positively encourage it.
The problem is, it isnt always used
that way.
The immediacy and public nature of
Twitter and its propensity to induce off-
the-cuff irreverence, and sometimes
breathtaking ugliness, has added a new
and chaotic element to an event where
everything from urine samples to spon-
sorslogos to London trafc is arranged
with overcaffeinated attention to detail
worthy of a royal wedding.
Though organizers have spent
months touting this as the rst social
media Summer Games, many of them
seem to have been totally unprepared
for the huge impact that Twitter has
had, said Andy Miah, director of the
Creative Futures Institute at the
University of the West of Scotland. I
think there was some naivete about the
likely role of social media from both
participants and from the organizers.
Many of them appear to have been
Twitter has been used in many ways
during its brief life some very organ-
ized and tactical, some more sponta-
neous and disorderly. It has been a tool
of protest and organization for the
Occupy Wall Street movement and
Arab Spring activists. Yet it has also led
to the downfall of click-happy politi-
cians, and the sometimes embarrassing
late-night revelations of A-list celebri-
The social network is now at the n-
gertips of 140 million users, up from a
few million when the Olympics were
held in Beijing in 2008. The San
Francisco-based company says there
have been more than 10 million tweets
mentioning the Olympics during the
rst few days of the games. The expo-
nential jump from four years ago has
been driven by the rise of smartphones,
now carried by spectators and athletes

LONDON The world doubles
badminton champs apparently are
good at losing, too.
Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang of
China were booed off the Olympic
court Tuesday after appearing to
intentionally lose against South
Koreans Jung Kyun-eun and Kim
Ha-na in a preliminary womens
match. The South Koreans also did-
nt look as if they were trying to win
at times.
The reason? Both teams had
already topped their groups and
qualied for the last 16, but the
result ensured top seeds Wang and
Yu avoided playing their No. 2-
seeded teammates until the nal.
Both teams dumped serves into
the net and made simple errors at
Wembley Arena. The longest rally
was only four strokes. The umpire
warned them midway through the
rst game, then tournament referee
Torsten Berg spoke to all four play-
ers, but it had little effect.
Eventually, the Chinese lost 21-
14, 21-11.
The strategy of vying for better
seedings in the next round seemed
to be repeated in the womens dou-
bles match between South Koreas
Ha Jung-eun and Kim Min-jung,
and Indonesias Meiliana Jauhari
and Greysia Polii. Both teams were
also warned for deliberately losing
points in a match the South Koreans
won 18-21, 21-14, 21-12.
The fans who had bought tickets
to the event vented their displeasure
on them, too.
Berg and the Badminton World
Federation said they were going to
Yu said they were only trying to
save energy for the knockout
rounds, starting Wednesday.
We would try hard in every
match if they were elimination
games, she said. Because they are
group stage, thats why we are con-
serving energy.
If were not playing the best its
because it doesnt matter if were
the rst or the second (in the group)
were already through. The most
important thing is the elimination
match tomorrow.
The South Koreans led a protest
to the referees.

Its their erce competitiveness, and the unshakable faith they
have in themselves. Rather than inching under the weight of
the heavy expectations, it made them stronger. When they
noticed the Russians and Romanians peeking in on their train-
ing sessions, they cranked up the oomph in their routines, the
better to intimidate.
Even Wiebers failure to qualify for the all-around nal,
which left her teammates stunned following Sundays sessions,
turned out to be a minor speedbump.
I told them just believe in yourself, Maroney said. Live up
to that Olympic moment, because youre never, ever going to
forget it.
Unforgettable, like their performance.
The Americans opened on vault, their strongest event,
unleashing a barrage right that let the Russians know in no
uncertain terms that they and everyone else would be
playing for silver.
Theyre just so far ahead of anyone else, Britains Rebecca
Tunney said.
All of the Americans do the high-difculty, high-scoring
Amanar a roundoff onto the takeoff board, back handspring
onto the table and 2.5 twisting somersaults before landing. Its
got a start value the measure of difculty of 6.5, a whop-
ping 0.7 above the vault most other gymnasts do, and they
ripped off one massive one after another.
Going rst, Wieber did perhaps the best one shes ever done,
getting great height in the air, her legs locked together. When her
feet slammed into the mat on landing, she threw up her arms and
smiled broadly. Anyone wondering how she was coping with the
devastation she felt Sunday had their answer.
I was pretty disappointed, but I had to put it together men-
tally, especially for this team, Wieber said. A team gold medal
was also ofcially a goal of mine, and I had to pull myself
together and move on and be stronger mentally for the team.
Gabby Douglas went next, and her vault was even better. Then
came Maroney, who may as well claim her Olympic vault gold
now. She got so much height on her Amanar its a wonder she
didnt bump her head on the overhead camera. She hit the mat
with tremendous force yet didnt so much as wiggle, tri-
umphantly thrusting her arms in the air as she saluted the judges.
The Americans strutted out of the event with a 1.7-point lead,
and never looked back.
We denitely started the competition with a bang, Maroney
Russia erased all but four-tenths of the decit on uneven bars,
where Viktoria Komova and Aliya Mustana defy the laws of
gravity. But the Americans threw down another challenge on
balance beam, making the 4-inch slab that stands 4 feet in the air
look like childs play. Kyla Ross, the only American who was-
nt on that world team last year (she was too young), performed
like a ballerina with her long legs and gorgeous lines. She land-
ed one somersault with her left foot curled over the edge of the
beam, yet never inched.
Douglas has struggled on balance beam all summer, with a
fall the second day of the U.S. championships costing her the
title. But she has been clutch in London, delivering the highest
score in qualifying and again Tuesday night. She whipped off a
series of backips as if she was still on the ground, a look of
intense concentration on her face. She had a small balance check
on a leap, swaying slightly and waving her arms to steady her-
self, but it was a minor error.
Aly Raisman wasnt her usual steady self, wobbling on a som-
ersault and taking a step back on her dismount. But it hardly
mattered because the Russians, following the U.S. on beam,
were about to implode.
Mustana swayed and wobbled so badly on the landing of a
leap its a wonder she didnt fall off. Komova almost stepped on
the judges on her dismount. The grim mood darkened even fur-
ther on oor exercise, where Anastasia Grishina stumbled on
one pass and botched another when she all but came to a dead
stop in the middle of the oor. World champion Ksenia
Afanaseva nished the night by landing her dismount on her
We did everything we could, Komova said.
The Americans swore they werent watching the scoreboard,
but there sure seemed to be some extra sparkle in their nal
three routines.
Wiebers bright smile widened as she danced and tumbled, the
crowd clapping in time to her techno pop music. Fans the world
over will be humming the Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo from
the start of Douglas music and little girls are sure to be bounc-
ing in their backyards trying to get as high as she does on her
leaps. Raisman closed it out with a rollicking routine to Hava
Nagila, soaring high on her tumbling passes and sticking a
landing with a cement-like rmness.
Coach Mihai Brestyan was jumping up and down as Raisman
nished, the tears already starting to fall. They gave way to
shrieks of joy as she collapsed into her teammates arms.
We knew we could do it, Raisman said. We just had to pull
out all the stops.

Michael Phelps rst gold medal of
the London Games was one special
The American swimming star broke
the Olympic medals record as the
United States romped to a dominating
win in 4x200-meter freestyle relay.
With 19 career medals spanning
three Olympics, Phelps moved one
ahead of Soviet gymnast Larisa
Latynina, who got her haul in 1956,
1960 and 1964. He helped the relay
team to the victory after settling for
silver when he glided at the end of the
200 buttery earlier Tuesday.
The United States team of Ryan
Lochte, Conor Dwyer, Ricky Berens
and Phelps on the anchor leg won in 6
minutes, 59.70 seconds. France took
the silver in 7:02.77, while China was
third in 7:06.30.
Phelps now has 15 golds, two sil-
vers and two bronzes.
Vincent Hancock is putting togeth-
er quite the Olympic resume. The 23-
year-old U.S. Army sergeant is a two-
time champion in mens skeet shoot-
ing after he successfully defended his
crown with a score of 148 in London.
Hancocks win gave the U.S. a
skeet sweep after Kimberly Rhode
won the womens competition earlier
this week. Anders Golding of
Denmark grabbed the silver, and
Qatars Nasser Al-Attiya won a shoot-
off over Russias Valery Shomin for
the bronze at the Royal Artillery
A female judo ghter from Saudi
Arabia was cleared to wear a form of
headscarf in the Olympics after a
compromise was reached that respects
the cultural sensitivity of the
Muslim kingdom.
Judo ofcials had said they would
not let Wojdan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim
Shahrkhani compete in a headscarf
because it was against the principles
of the sport and raised safety con-
cerns. But an agreement was reached
after several days of IOC-brokered
talks between the International Judo
Federation and the Saudi Olympic
Committee, allowing her to compete
Friday in the heavyweight division.
Andy Roddick spent less than an
hour on the court during an emphatic
loss to Novak Djokovic. Jo-Wilfried
Tsonga needed a much longer run to
advance against Milos Raonic.
Roddick lost 6-2, 6-1 to Djokovic in
54 minutes, leaving the 29-year-old
American to fend off more questions
about retirement.
The second-ranked Djokovic had
34 winners on Centre Court at the All
England Club. Roddick had 12.
Tsonga of France moved on by
winning the longest set in Olympic
history. He beat Raonic of Canada 6-
3, 3-6, 25-23. The nal set lasted three
hours and 257 points.
Andy Murray, Marcos Baghdatis
and Kei Nishikori also won on the
mens side. Maria Sharapova and
Venus Williams were among the win-
ners in the womens tournament.
Chen Ruolin and Wang Hao led
China to its third diving gold in
London, this one off the big tower in
womens 10-meter synchronized div-
ing. China won going away with
368.40 points, and the country is near-
ly halfway to its goal of sweeping the
eight diving events.

alike, each watching each other watch

Which of course raises the question:
When exuberant, often young athletes
are going through the experience of
their lives on one hand, and its unfold-
ing in a deeply controlled environment
on the other, how do you make sure
everyone gets what they need without
it all turning to anarchy?
The IOC, Miah says, has tried to
exert control by creating its own social
media hub gathering athletes
tweets and posts from Facebook, the
other formidable player in this land-
scape. But it hasnt always worked out
as planned.
On Saturday, U.S. womens soccer
goalkeeper Hope Solo launched a
Twitter outburst against Brandi
Chastain, the former American soccer
player who is now an analyst on NBC.
Its 2 bad we cant have commentators
who better represents the team&knows
more about the game, Solo wrote.
Dozens of athletes, including some
British soccer players, have taken to
Twitter to promote their sponsors
products, a violation of Olympic rules
that could theoretically lead to their
expulsions. Some Olympians,
undoubtedly delighting agents and
marketers back home, have started an
online campaign to get the rules
And its not just athletes who are stir-
ring the stew of controversy.
British lawmaker Aidan Burley
earned a sharp rebuke from fellow con-
servatives after he tweeted that Danny
Boyles critically acclaimed opening

Britains history in a rousing mix of
music, symbolism and showmanship,
was leftie multicultural crap.
Twitter on Tuesday was forced to
apologize to a British journalist whose
account was blocked after he criticized
NBCs coverage of the opening cere-
mony and posted the e-mail of a net-
work executive. And thousands of dis-

LONDON To be honest, Todd
Rogers said, he thought his hit that
helped put the Americans one point
away from victory was illegal, too.
Rogers took a spike off the chest
and then popped it up into the air for
teammate Phil Dalhausser, who
passed it back for Rogers to clear out.
Whether that should count as three
hits or four one too many
depends on whom you ask, but in the
referees opinion it was a legal hit that
gave the Americans a 14-12 lead.
I told him (the referee) I thought it
was a double-hit, Rogers said after
holding on to win 19-21, 21-16, 15-13
and remain unbeaten in the prelimi-
nary round of the Olympic beach vol-
leyball tournament. He said it was all
one motion. ... Its a judgment call.
Beach volleyball teams have three
hits to get the ball back over the net,
but contact made while attempting a
block doesnt count. In the referees
judgment, the ball bounced off
Rogers chest and wrist before the
player could react and thus only
counted as one hit.
But Spains Pablo Herrera vocifer-
ously disagreed, arguing with the ref-
eree Marc Berard of France until he
was given a yellow card, then contin-
ued to argue. (A second yellow card
would have cost them a point in
this case, match point.)
The Spaniards won the next point
when Herrera crossed his shot in front
of Dalhaussers attempted block, but
Rogers found an unoccupied part of
the court on the next point for the
Rogers went over to Berard after
the match and asked about the call,
telling the ofcial that he thought he
had committed a violation; the referee
held his ground. Herrera also went
back over to the referee, and not quite
as politely, berating him on the court
until Berard walked off with the other
I spoke with him why he did not
call that, Herrera said. I thought it
was four hits.
The Americans were in trouble the
entire rst set, and Spain clinched it
21-19 when Rogers missed a serve
and then attempted two crosscourt
shots but put them into the net instead.
The U.S. pair took an eight-point lead
in the second and held on to win 21-
16, then opened a 5-1 lead in the third.
The victory guarantees that the
Americans will not be eliminated in
pool play. Their nal match of the pre-
liminary round is against the Czech
Republic on Thursday.

ATLANTA It sounds like an unfolding
epidemic: A decade ago, virtually no one in
the U.S. seemed to have a problem eating
gluten in bread and other foods. Now, millions
Gluten-free products are ying off grocery
shelves, and restaurants are boasting of meals
with no gluten. Celebrities on TV talk shows
chat about the digestive discomfort they blame
on the wheat protein they now shun. Some
churches even offer gluten-free Communion
I dont know whether theres more people
getting this or that more people are noticing
they have a problem, said the Rev. Richard
Allen, pastor at Mamaroneck United
Methodist Church, north of New York City.
Or is it just another food fad?
Faddishness is a big part of it. Americans
will spend an estimated $7 billion this year on
foods labeled gluten-free, according to the
market research rm Mintel. But the best esti-
mates are that more than half the consumers
buying these products perhaps way more
than half dont have any clear-cut reaction
to gluten.
They buy gluten-free because they think it
will help them lose weight, or because they
seem to feel better, or because they mistaken-
ly believe they are sensitive to gluten.
We have a lot of self-diagnosing going on
out there, said Melissa Abbott, who tracks the
gluten-free market for the Hartman Group, a
Seattle-area market research organization.
Fads aside, research suggests more people
are truly getting sick from the gluten found in
wheat, rye and barley, but the reasons arent
In the most serious cases, gluten triggers
celiac disease. The condition causes abdomi-
nal pain, bloating and intermittent diarrhea.
Those with the ailment dont absorb nutrients
well and can suffer weight loss, fatigue, rash-
es and other problems.
It was once considered extremely rare in the
U.S. But about 20 years ago, a few scientists
began exploring why celiac disease was less
common here than in Europe and other coun-
tries. They concluded that it wasnt less com-
mon here; it was just under-diagnosed.
More recently, a research team led by the
Mayo Clinics Dr. Joseph Murray looked at
blood samples taken from Americans in the
1950s and compared them with samples taken
from people today, and determined it wasnt
just better diagnosis driving up the numbers.
Celiac disease actually was increasing.
Indeed, the research conrms estimates that
about 1 percent of U.S. adults have it today,
making it four times more common now than
it was 50 years ago, Murray and his colleagues
reported Tuesday in the American Journal of
That translates to nearly 2 million
Americans with celiac disease.
Celiac disease is different from an allergy to
wheat, which affects a much smaller number
of people, mostly children who outgrow it.
Scientists suggest that there may be more
celiac disease today because people eat more
processed wheat products like pastas and
baked goods than in decades past, and those
items use types of wheat that have a higher
gluten content. Gluten helps dough rise and
gives baked goods structure and texture.
Or it could be due to changes made to
wheat, Murray said.
In the 1950s, scientists began cross-breed-
ing wheat to make hardier, shorter and better-
growing plants. It was the basis of the Green
Revolution that boosted wheat harvests world-
wide. Norman Borlaug, the U.S. plant scien-
tist behind many of the innovations, won the
Nobel Peace Prize for his work.
But the gluten in wheat may have somehow
become even more troublesome for many peo-
ple, Murray said.
That also may have contributed to what is
now called gluten sensitivity.
Doctors recently developed a denition for
gluten sensitivity, but its an ambiguous one.
Its a label for people who suffer bloating and
other celiac symptoms and seem to be helped
by avoiding gluten, but dont actually have
celiac disease. Celiac disease is diagnosed
with blood testing, genetic testing, or biopsies
of the small intestine.
The case for gluten sensitivity was bolstered
last year by a very small but often-cited
Australian study. Volunteers who had symp-
toms were put on a gluten-free diet or a regu-
lar diet for six weeks, and they werent told
which one. Those who didnt eat gluten had
fewer problems with bloating, tiredness and
irregular bowel movements.
Clearly, there are patients who are gluten-
sensitive, said Dr. Sheila Crowe, a San
Diego-based physician on the board of the
American Gastroenterological Association.
What is hotly debated is how many people
have the problem, she added. Its impossible
to know because the denition is nebulous,
she said.
One of the most widely cited estimates
comes from Dr. Alessio Fasano, a University
of Maryland researcher who led studies that
changed the understanding of how common
celiac disease is in the U.S.
Fasano believes 6 percent of U.S. adults
Is your problem gluten? Or faddish eating?
See GLUTEN, Page 20
People buy gluten-free because they think it will help them lose weight, or because they
seem to feel better, or because they mistakenly believe they are sensitive to gluten.

have gluten sensitivity. But thats based on a
review of patients at his clinic hardly a rep-
resentative sample of the general public.
Other estimates vary widely, he said.
Theres a tremendous amount of confusion
out there, Fasano said.
Whatever the number, marketing of foods
without gluten has exploded. Those with celi-
ac disease, of course, are grateful. Until only
a few years ago, it was difcult to nd grocery
and dining options.
Its a matter of keeping people safe, said
Michelle Kelly, an Atlanta-area woman who
started a gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, nut-
free bakery in 2010 after her son was diag-
nosed with celiac disease. While conventional
bakers use wheat our, she uses such ingredi-
ents as millet our, sorghum our, brown rice
our and tapioca starch.
At one of Atlantas largest and busiest
health food stores, Return to Eden, manager
Troy DeGroff said over a third of his cus-
tomers come in for gluten-free products for
themselves or their family.
Thank you, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, he said,
referring to one of the hosts of the daytime
talk show The View who helped popularize
gluten-free eating.
Its hard to say how many of his customers
have a medical reason for skipping gluten. But
theyre at least paying attention to what
theyre sticking in their mouth, he said.
On a recent Friday afternoon, several cus-
tomers bought gluten-free, though none had
been diagnosed with celiac disease or had
digestive problems from eating wheat.
Julia White said she picks up gluten-free
items when her granddaughters visit. Theyve
been diagnosed with problems, she said.
They dont just make this up.
Another customer, Meagan Jain, said she
made gluten-free cupcakes with a school
friend and liked the taste. But she doesnt buy
gluten-free often because its expensive.
For her, Its a fad. Its part of the eclectic,
alternative lifestyle.

Great taste often comes down to contrast.
Its why we pair tender and crunchy textures,
sweet and sour avors, and hot and cold tem-
peratures (think hot fudge sauce over vanilla
ice cream). In a way, these contrasts amplify
the avors of the dish, making the food much
more than a simple sum of the parts.
And its a technique well suited to healthy
eating. Because by playing with contrasts,
you are able to coax so much more from oth-
erwise simple ingredients.
For example, this fruit salad from Arthur
Potts Dawsons new cookbook, Eat Your
Vegetables, pairs cooling cucumber and
refreshing watermelon and mango with spicy
red and green chilies. There also is contrast
between the sweetness of the fruit and the
savory avors of the sauce (which is made
from sh sauce, mirin and olive oil). The result
is a delicious and healthy combination with far
more avor than your typical fruit salad.
Using both chilies called for in this recipe
makes for a dish with real kick. The heat is
nicely moderated by the sweet watermelon
and mango.
But if you dont like things spicy, back
down to half the amount of chilies.

WEST ALLIS, Wis. Chris Covelli plant-
ed 1,000 zucchini seeds on his farm in south-
ern Wisconsin this spring. Only a quarter
sprouted in the parched soil. A few weeks
later, he planted 1,000 more seeds and dou-
bled his irrigation. This time, nothing came
Covelli also lost his broccoli and green
beans to the drought that now covers two-
thirds of the nation. Under pressure to ll the
boxes he delivers weekly to families who buy
annual subscriptions of produce, he recently
threw in purslane, which he describes as a
vitamin-rich, delicious weed that tastes like
Small fruit and vegetable farmers through-
out the Midwest are struggling with unusual
heat and a once-in-decades drought. Some
have lost crops, while others are paying more
to irrigate. Most arent growing enough to sell
protably to wholesalers, and sales at farmers
markets are down. Those with community
supported agriculture programs, or CSAs, are
looking for ways to keep members happy, or
at least satised enough that theyll sign up
again next year.
Covelli said he and his crew have spent
every day in the eld, often in 100-degree
heat, in an effort to deliver the vegetables
promised to families who pay $14 to $45 per
week. So far, he said, theyve delivered most
of what they promised, although theyve had
to get creative with the addition of drought-
hardy items like purslane.
Theres no secret, said Covelli, who owns
Tomato Mountain Farms in Brooklyn, Wis.
You just do what you have to do. If that
means doing more plantings, trying different
crops, waking up at 2 a.m. to move the irriga-
tion pipe, we do it. Thats what hard work is.
Other farmers have not fared as well. Bob
Borchardt, who co-owns Harvest Moon
Farms in Viroqua, Wis., lost most of his
greens, including chard and kale. He also runs
a CSA, but said thus far, hes only been able
to deliver about 20 percent of what he
planned. He hopes to make it up to members
when his heirloom tomatoes come in next
Meanwhile, hes been in dire need of cash.
To tide him over, he sold sponsorships of
two elds for a total of $5,000. The Illinois
family who bought the sponsorships will be
able to pick from the eld, be treated to a
home-cooked meal on the land and have a
corporate logo or family portrait posted
among the plants.
Were not out of the woods yet, but we are
optimistic, Borchardt said. All were think-
ing about now is getting through this year and
staying in business.
Unlike farmers who grow corn, soybeans
and other crops sold as commodities, veg-
etable farmers dont have insurance to cover
them in case of drought or ooding.
But even those who have vegetables to sell
say it has been a bad year.
Anna Ertl, whose family runs a farm in
Raymond, Wis., near the Illinois border,
shook her head as she watched a trickle of
customers meander through a farmers market
in the Milwaukee suburb of West Allis. In
front of her was a table with pickles, sweet
onions and several dozen zucchinis.
You hear so much bad stuff in the media
(about harvests), but people need to come
down here and see what we have, Ertl said.
This is our livelihood. This is how we sur-
Dan Koralewski, who oversees operations
at the West Allis Farmers Market, said 5,000
to 6,000 customers generally show up during
peak season in mid-July, but attendance
seemed to be about half that this year. He
blamed a combination of customer skepticism
and hot weather that kept many people in the
cooler indoors.
Small farmers struggle as drought kills vegetables
Farmer Scott Keach holds a drought-damaged soybean plant in one of his elds in Henderson,
Ky.Welcome rains provided some relief to heat-stressed cities and worried farmers but reports
of failed crops, wildres and other fallout from the worst drought in more than 50 years
tempered any optimism.

suggest moving fifth grade students to
Bowditch to solve the problem a recommen-
dation to be presented to the San Mateo-
Foster City Elementary District Board of
Trustees Thursday. It will come with a high
cost and a steep increase in students at one
school, raising concerns for some committee
The committee was created in March after
residents packed a board meeting to oppose
the idea of the district purchasing commercial
space to house a fourth elementary school in
Foster City.
The idea the committee came up with is
fairly simple: Move fth grade to middle
school. That would reduce the number of stu-
dents at elementary schools. First, Bowditch
would need to be renovated or torn down and
A plan estimated to cost $65 million was
favored by the group. It would rebuild
Bowditch to serve fth through eighth grade
students. While students would share the gym
space, separate facilities like libraries and
multipurpose rooms would be built for stu-
dents in fth and sixth grade as well as sev-
enth and eighth grade. This would create a
campus with 1,500 students that features 74
percent of the recommended play space for
that many students.
In addition to moving fth grade, the group
considered other ways to utilize the space at
Bowditch including the addition of a small
elementary school on the site and creating a
kindergarten through eighth grade school.
Cost for the options ranged from $65 million
to $73.2 million. The student population
ranged from 1,500 to 1,640 students.
Committee member Doug Stoveland, who
called into the meeting, expressed concerns
about the congestion created with so many
students on the campus. Bridget Michelsen,
who also called in, echoed concerns that the
possible solution moved overcrowding to
middle school.
Superintendent Cyndy Simms said stagger-
ing some of the start times could help with
those problems. Also, the plan would be to
build additional oors to create more play
space for students, she said. Rebuilding facil-
ities like the multi-purpose room, library and
gym will mean having facilities that can meet
the larger number of students.
Other smaller ideas could be used in the
short term to help with the problem such as
creating morning and afternoon kindergarten
and having middle school teachers share
classroom and ofce space.
The district has been looking for space for a
fourth elementary school in Foster City for
nearly four years now and the relationship
between the district and the City Council has
previously been characterized as con-
tentious as city ofcials have repeatedly
turned down proposals to build a school on the
15-acre city-owned site adjacent to City Hall
or in any of the citys several parks.
In March, the board meeting had a packed
house with those opposing a proposal for a
new school at the shopping center at 1050-
1064 Shell Blvd. in Foster City known as
Charter Square. The six-acre site was unpop-
ular with some members of the public. As a
result, the joint city-district effort of SCORE
was put together in hopes of nding a suitable
option. SCORE members basically spoke
against using Charter Square or a park.
Paying for a new school has been put on
hold twice over the last school year.
Purchasing land was to be covered using
funds from Measure L a 2008 $175 million
bond measure. Measure Ls bond language
allows for assistance with overcrowding
issues. If the district went for an option that
didnt require purchasing of land, the money
could be used for other ways of solving over-
crowding issues.
At rst, it appeared the district would have
a $25 million bond measure on the November
2011 ballot for that purpose. As proposed, the
bond would have been paid for by Foster City
residents only. It was pulled to allow the dis-
trict to identify land before asking for money.
The board then came back with the idea of a
$130 million district-wide bond measure for
the June ballot. A larger bond was considered
since the district as a whole has unmet needs
from the $330 million outlined in the 2007-08
facilities master plan. The board opted against
putting the measure on the ballot given the pub-
lic concerns expressed at the March meeting.
On Thursday, the board will consider call-
ing a special meeting Aug. 9 at which it could
vote to place a bond measure on the
November ballot. The deadline to place a
measure on the November ballot is Aug. 10,
according to the countys Election Ofce.

Childrens entertainer performs August 2
terday she expects the $213,000 to stay about
the same after her campaign provides an
update to the secretary of state.
According to the June 4 report, she has only
spent about $34,000 on her campaign so far.
Hill and Lieber fended off two other candi-
dates in the June primary to move on to the
November election. Hill garnered about 50
percent in June while Lieber had about 21 per-
cent of the vote.
Lieber has been spending frugally on the
race so far but she said that will pick up in the
coming weeks as the election approaches. She
was termed out of the Assembly in 2008 and
is the former mayor of Mountain View.
Hills campaign provided an update to the
secretary of state yesterday with his latest
contributions which show he has raised more
than $616,000 since Jan. 1. He has spent just
under $400,000 on the campaign so far and
has another $339,000 to spend on the race.
Hill has more than 400 endorsements with
the latest being San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee
and state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto.
Ive got broad support from lots of differ-
ent areas including from the electorate in June
and its indicative of the nancial support Ive
gotten, Hill told the Daily Journal yesterday.
Voters dont want to see a self-funded cam-
paign like Meg Whitman or Steve Poizner.
Hill told the Daily Journal previously he
expects Lieber to dig deeper into her own wal-
let to fuel her campaign.
But money should not be the predominate
issue, Lieber said.
It shouldnt cost more to run a campaign
than it does to buy a house, she said.
Hills money comes from special interests,
she said, and voters get cynical when they see
Political action committees have given Hill
broad support including the California
Society of Certied Public Accountants PAC;
Personal Insurance Federation of California
PAC; California Association for Behavior
Analysis PAC; and TechAmerica PAC among
many others. Those four groups have donated
a total of $5,500 to Hills campaign.
Genentech also donated $3,900 to his cam-
paign and the Microsoft Corporation PAC
donated another $3,900.
He also has a long list of individual contrib-
utors who donated anywhere from $100 to
$1,000 to his campaign including Burlingame
Councilwoman Terry Nagel, who donated
$125, and San Mateo County Supervisor
Carole Groom, who also donated $125 to his
Groom replaced Hill on the Board of
Supervisors and both are former mayors of
San Mateo.
Liebers biggest nancial supporter is the
California Teachers Association, which donat-
ed $7,800 to her campaign. Other big support-
ers include the Womens Political Committee,
which donated $3,900 to her campaign, and
the Democratic Activists for Women Now
PAC, which donated $2,500 to her campaign.
Most of her expenditures have been for
fundraising events so far.
Hill, however, has spent big on campaign
literature, mailings, polling and survey
He spent $130,000 alone in May on litera-
ture and mailings. He has also spent more
than $50,000 on polling research.
Lieber said the electorate will question what
Hill had to do to get all that special interest
This is a savvy district, she said. The real
difference boils down to independence.

Chefs of world leaders
boost diplomacy with food
PARIS They feed the powerful and are
most at home in the kitchen. But French
President Francois Hollande contends that the
chefs who cook for the leaders of the world
have a behind-the-scenes role at the negotiat-
ing tables of international diplomacy.
If your dish is a miss, its more difcult to
plead a cause, Hollande told nearly 20 chefs
on a visit Tuesday to the presidential Elysee
What could be the worlds most exclusive
gastronomic association, the Club des Chefs
des Chefs a club of chefs for political lead-
ers brings these gastronomic masters
together each year in a different country. The
elite club has been in Paris since Sunday, after
a ve-day visit to Berlin that included a meet-
ing with Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Their reception by European leaders under-
scores that diplomacy is one part negotiations
and one part the delicious sauces cooked up in
their chefs kitchens. Hollande and Merkel
have bumped heads over the European nan-
cial crisis and whether to sweeten the aus-
terity pot with growth incentives.
He gave a very nice speech on the role of
gastronomy in diplomacy, said the clubs
president, Christian Garcia, the chef to Prince
Albert II of Monaco. He said that when our
cuisine is top quality, he can dare to hope that
accords, discussions are positive.
Donning impeccable white toques and
white aprons, the chefs toured the kitchen of
the Elysee Palace.
There are copper pots that date to 1845,
some from the Chateau of Fontainebleau,
Garcia said. It was truly moving.
Among those present were White House
Chef Cristeta Comerford, the chef to Queen
Elizabeth II of England, Mark Flanagan, and
Hilton Little, chef to South African presidents,
including Nelson Mandela.
Bernard Vaussion, the Elysee Palace chef
who has fed six French presidents, was the
host for the Paris visit. Colleague Ulrich Kerz,
who cooks for Merkel, led the group during
their visit to Germany.

The Board of Supervisors made no
concrete decisions but told Jim Porter,
director of public works and parks, they
liked all his ideas and asked him to devel-
op a ve-year strategic plan.
Porter estimates the work will take
three to six months.
While some initiatives can start in the
near future expanding the sheriffs
work program and volunteer opportuni-
ties and reviewing all fees others
would take several years to evaluate and
implement. The longer range options
include camping at the site of the medium
security facility in La Honda once the
new jail is built, a sports eld complex at
Coyote Point and concessions like wind
surng lessons at the existing Peninsula
Humane Society site.
We want to work with the countys
other efforts for economic development
and look at what makes sense, Porter
Porter was left optimistic by the
boards enthusiasm yesterday for a strate-
gic plan to build back the parks level of
service and stafng. Since 1991, staff has
dropped from 65 to 51.6 full-time posi-
tions and the department was consolidat-
ed with Public Works in 2011 to cut
administrative costs.
As nancial belts tightened, parks were
often on the chopping block largely
because it is not a mandated service. In
return, facilities closed, projects stalled
and infrastructure deteriorated.
Previous efforts to create a dedicated
funding stream for parks have stumbled
with two specic tax measures falling
short of the needed two-thirds majority.
Parks were named as one reason behind
the countys three tax measures on the
June ballot, two of which failed but a
third which is estimated to bring in $8
million annually.
Last week, supervisors also voted 4-1
to put a half-cent sales tax before voters
in November. While the general tax
measure isnt ofcially earmarked for
specic needs, ofcials did include parks
on a laundry list of possible recipients of
the new revenue.
Im certainly rooting for it, Porter
The countys park system began in
1924 with the dedication of Memorial
Park in 1924 and serves an estimated 1.7
million visitors through picnic sites,
camp sites, playgrounds, sports elds,
visitor centers and 186 miles of trails.
Although county ofcials have often
made tough budget choices that resulted
in cuts to parks, the Board of Supervisors
has certainly made no secret of its wish to
support the system. During the recent
budget hearings, the board added back
$350,000 to the parks budget. The board
also approved $1.9 million in funding for
the Devils Slide project, $1.3 million for
Alpine Road improvements and repairs
and $925,000 for the planning phases of
water and wastewater treatment plan ren-
ovations at Memorial Park.
The parks budget for capital improve-
ment projects is $7.5 million for scal
year 2012-13 but approximately $12.1
million in improvements have been iden-
tied for the next ve years.
Board President Adrienne Tissier
acknowledged that Porter and the parks
division has a lot on its plate but urged
him to be as aggressive as possible to get
things going in a timely fashion.
Doing so, she said, will hopefully reap
rewards several years down the road.
Continued from page 1
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Even though you might not
believe it to be true, your judgment is excellent. Dont
ponder on things to the point of confusion, causing
you to err on the side of caution.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Financial matters could
be a bit tricky for you, so move slowly when dealing
with them. In order to stay in the proft column,
do not allow your expenditures to overpower your
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Certain friends whom
you enjoy might not appeal to your mate or family.
Youd better get your familys approval if you want to
include your pals on a guest list youre assembling.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Due to an unusual
change, unearned benefts might come your way.
If you fail to share your good luck with others, the
source might be shut down.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Because youre
a bit impulsive, there is a strong possibility that you
could do something that would arouse feelings of
givers remorse. Be generous but not foolish.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A wonderful op-
portunity might unexpectedly manifest, but it wont
be offered solely to you. You must be quick to act on
it before others beat you to the punch.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Although you are
likely to be fortunate when you are left solely to your
own devices, this same luck may not be present with
any involvements that you share with others.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Analyze all joint
endeavors very carefully, because they could contain
more problems than promises. Make sure each
component is examined for its own merit.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Dont let it be said of
you that youre a nice person only as long as ev-
erybody agrees with you. Be kind to everyone, even
those with whom you dont see eye to eye.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The way youre han-
dling a fnancial matter may not be optimal, but if you
see that its working fairly well so far, dont switch
plans this late in the game.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You should do OK when
you rely upon yourself to make sure you have an
environment in which you can work, but when you
depend upon others to provide one, itll be anybodys
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If there is an objective
youre presently pursuing that is substantial and
meaningful, dont let anybody convince you it would
be impossible to achieve and thus stop your quest.

NEW DELHI Electric crema-
toria were snuffed out with bodies
inside, New Delhis Metro shut
down and hundreds of coal miners
were trapped underground after
three Indian electric grids collapsed
in a cascade Tuesday, cutting power
to 620 million people in the worlds
biggest blackout.
While Indians were furious and
embarrassed, many took the crisis in
stride, inured by the constant
though far less widespread out-
ages triggered by the huge electrici-
ty decit stymieing the development
of this would-be Asian power.
Hospitals, factories and the air-
ports switched automatically to their
diesel generators during the hours-
long cut across half of India. Many
homes relied on backup systems
powered by truck batteries. And
hundreds of millions of Indias poor-
est had no electricity to lose.
The blackout might have been
huge, but it wasnt unbearably long,
said Satish, the owner of a coffee
and juice shop in central Delhi who
uses only one name. It was just as
bad as any other ve-hour power
cut. We just used a generator while
the light was out, and it was work as
The crisis was the second record-
breaking outage in two days. Indias
northern grid failed Monday, leaving
370 million people powerless for
much of the day, in a collapse
blamed on states that drew more
than their allotment of power.
At 1:05 p.m. Tuesday, the north-
ern grid collapsed again, energy of-
cials said. This time, it took the east-
ern grid and the northeastern grid
with it. In all, 20 of Indias 28 states
with double the population of the
United States were hit in a region
stretching from the border with
Myanmar in the northeast to the
Pakistani border about 3,000 kilo-
meters (1,870 miles) away.
Electricity grids fail across half of India

WASHINGTON A new pack-
age of severe sanctions on Irans
energy, shipping and nancial sec-
tors gained strong congressional
support Tuesday as lawmakers
sought to ratchet up the economic
pressure in hopes of halting
Tehrans suspected nuclear weapons
House and Senate negotiators
reached agreement late Monday on
legislation that builds on the current
penalties directed at nancial insti-
tutions that do business with Irans
central bank. The new bill would
impose sanctions on anyone who
mines uranium with Iran; sells, leas-
es or provides oil tankers to Tehran;
or provides insurance to the
National Iranian Tanker Co., the
state-run shipping line.
Iranian ofcials quickly criticized
the latest round of penalties, label-
ing the economic pressure war-
fare and promising to retool the
countrys oil-dependent economy.
In an election year, U.S. lawmak-
ers were determined to punish Iran
while sending a strong signal of
support to Israel amid fears about
the Iranian threat to the close
Mideast ally. In a separate move,
President Barack Obama used his
executive authority to impose fresh
sanctions on foreign banks in China
and Iraq that the U.S. says helps
Iran evade the penalties.
The move came as Obamas
Republican rival, Mitt Romney, has
argued that the president isnt tough
on Iran.
The Democratic and Republican
leaders in the Senate said Tuesday
they expect swift passage of the lat-
est package of sanctions after a
House vote tentatively scheduled
for Wednesday.
It would be better to have that
down on the presidents desk by the
end of the week, Senate Minority
Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.,
told reporters.
The measure has one crucial
backer the powerful American
Israel Public Affairs Committee, the
pro-Israel lobbying group and
extensive support from Republicans
and Democrats.
That will go a long way, Sen.
Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said of the
AIPAC support. Sen. Bob
Menendez, D-N.J., who pushed for
the shipping sanctions, called the
bill a good move at a critical time.
The latest round of sanctions
came as the White House
announced separate penalties on
banks in China and Iraq that the
Obama administration says have
helped Iran evade international
House, Senate negotiators back new Iran sanctions
