The city of San Mateo is backing
off enforcement of auto shop vehi-
cle lifts and temporarily not issuing
any new permits, saying it would
rather find solutions with businesses
who were hit with costly violations
in recent weeks during inspections
for other public nuisance problems.
“We understand this came as a
surprise to many in the auto shop
community and we are aware of and
sensitive to the concerns which have
been expressed by the business
owners,” City Manager Susan
Loftus wrote in an Oct. 19 letter to
the shops.
While the auto lift code enforce-
ment is on hold, Loftus said other
unrelated violation such as parking,
car repair on the streets and garbage
must still be fixed.
The letter was a relief to Joseph
Boyd of Metric-tech on South
Claremont Street.
“They approached the whole situa-
tion wrong. They should have come
to us first about problems with park-
ing and people working on the street
but they didn’t. That totally blew my
mind when they did that,” Boyd said.
Boyd’s shop and more than a
dozen others located in the area of
South Claremont Street and South
Railroad Avenue met with City
Attorney Shawn Mason earlier to
say they were unfairly singled out
for an array of code enforcement
issues, including vehicle lifts.
Vehicle lifts, also known as racks
or hoists, are used to raise cars and
trucks for servicing.
Warning letters said the owners
could be hit with a $2,000 adminis-
trative fee plus daily civil penalties
if the owners did not comply by a
certain date.
Boyd, who cites 18 years in the
industry, said needing a special per-
mit for lifts was news to him and the
others. He felt the city was looking

Anti-human trafficking measure
Proposition 35 has garnered support
from dozens of elected officials and
law enforcement organizations.
Despite its long list of endorse-
ments, the proposition has a few
surprising foes. Some human traf-
ficking victims’ advocates are
against it.
One opponent is Cindy Liou, staff
attorney with Asian Pacific Islander
Legal Outreach, which has provided
legal and social services to more
than 250 human trafficking victims
in the Bay Area.
“People need to support the sur-
vivor, not just the title of the meas-
ure,” she said.
She says the increased fines for
traffickers would not necessarily help
the survivors of human trafficking.

The ongoing review of the Transit
Village environmental review and
several more anticipated meetings
on the proposed San Carlos devel-
opment is pushing up the cost of
consultants to attend and answer
questions from the Planning
Commission and public.
The San Carlos City Council on
Monday will consider approving a
$16,296 contract increase with
Atkins North America Inc., the envi-
ronmental consultant, to cover the
cost of four more meetings. If
approved, the amount will be passed
through the city to developer Legacy
Partners which is on board with the
contract increase.
Senior Project Manager Michael
Kay, noise analyst Chris Shields and
parking analyst Gary Black have
already attended three Planning
Commission meetings on the proj-
ect and another is scheduled Oct. 29.
Numerous Transit Village
meetings increase contract
• Increase maximum fines
and prison sentences for
human traffickers;
• Allocate fines to victim
services and law
• Require convicted sex
traffickers to register as sex
• Require sex offenders to
register all online identities;
• Prohibit victim’s commercial
sex activity from being used
against them in court; and
• Require human trafficking
training for law enforcement.

Two Norteno gangmembers accused of
participating in a multi-city crime spree that
included the shooting of a convenience store
clerk and the stabbing of a cab driver plead-
ed no contest Friday and were immediately
sentenced to prison.
Andrew Jarome Marquez, 19, and Ronald
Resendez, 19, of Oakland took the negotiat-
ed pleas just as jury trial was about to begin
on charges of attempted premeditated mur-
der, attempted robbery, assault with a semi-
automatic firearm, two counts of robbery,
one count of attempted carjacking and vehi-
cle theft.
Marquez and Resendez both pleaded no
contest to second-degree attempted murder
and conspiracy with gang allegations.
Resendez also pleaded no contest to rob-
bery. Marquez received 15 years in prison
and Resendez received 17 years.
Accomplice Daniel Alejandro Bustos-
Mendez, 20, of Menlo Park, accepted a sim-
ilar deal earlier this year and was sentenced
to three years prison for felony robbery and
conspiracy. Another, Robert John Herrera,
19, of Pacifica, pleaded no contest to two
counts of assault with a deadly weapon,
attempted robbery, robbery and gang allega-
tions. He was sentenced to 20 years prison.
Prosecutors believe Resendez, who is also
charged with personally using a firearm,
was the ringleader and shooter in the string
of crimes while Herrera is fingered as the
driver and lookout.
According to authorities, the four men
robbed a Shell gas station on Hickey
Boulevard in Pacifica on Aug. 20, 2010.
Herrera drove the group in a Toyota stolen
from Sunnyvale and acted as lookout while
the others went inside. When the clerk was
slow opening the register, Resendez
allegedly shot him four times in the legs
before the group fled without taking any
cash. The group then headed to South San
Francisco where they allegedly robbed at
gunpoint a 7-Eleven store on Callan
Boulevard, using the same method of
Herrera as lookout. In Colma, the group
allegedly approached a taxi driver wanting
to take the cab as a new vehicle. One person
reportedly tried to stab the driver in the neck
but hit his hand when he put it up in
They reportedly fled again and were later
spotted by Daly City police who recognized
the vehicle from reports of the earlier inci-
dents and of a stolen car from Sunnyvale.
The group jumped from the car and police
later discovered the handgun about 20 yards
away and Herrera in the backyard of a near-
by residence.
Gangmembers take deal for crime spree
By Michelle Durand
A Pacifica man accused of stabbing and
beating his friend with a hammer more than
50 times at his father’s home appeared in
court Friday afternoon on murder and
weapons charges but did not enter a plea.
Authorities are still working out a possi-
ble motive for Marc Anthony Furlan’s
alleged killing of Keith Coffey, 24, at his
father’s home on Dell Road in Pacifica.
Police found Coffey unconscious on the
ground in front of a home around 5:15 a.m.
and pronounced him dead at the scene.
The two men were acquaintances and
reportedly argued before Furlan, 24, killed
Coffey inside the home he shared with his
father and two tenants and dragged the body
The tenants reportedly fled the home to a
nearby restaurant and called for help.
Furlan’s father was not home at the time
of the incident.
Authorities aren’t offering many details
on the physical confrontation but Coffey’s
injuries were so severe Coroner Robert
Foucrault said his office is still trying to
determine an exact cause of death.
“We’re not in a position to determine
what he died from. We know it was a trau-
matic event but we’re not sure yet if it was
one thing or multiple that led to it,”
Foucrault said.
Furlan tried cleaning up the home after
the killing and was preparing to get rid of
the body, said District Attorney Steve
Furlan was arrested on suspicion of
Coffey’s death Wednesday afternoon.
He is being held without bail and in court
Friday did little more than request a court-
appointed attorney. He returns to court Oct.
26 to enter a plea to one count of murder
and two weapons charges, one for the knife
and one for the hammer.
Furlan has prior convictions for driving
while under the influence but no other crim-
inal history.
Coffey’s death is the first murder in
Pacifica since 2000.

SACRAMENTO — A doctor at
California Medical Facility was
paid more than $410,000 last year,
while a registered nurse at High
Desert State Prison made nearly
$236,000 — more than twice the
statewide average in both cases.
A pharmacist at Corcoran State
Prison was paid more than
$196,000, nearly double what is
typical across the state.
Compensation for medical
providers has soared in the prison
system since a federal judge seized
control of inmate health care in

lane of traffic. However, after several open houses there is
lingering concern than changing the configuration would
create unintended consequences like excessive congestion

Farm Hill Boulevard and funds earmarked for the project can
be used on other roads.

Gun industry thrives
during Obama’s term in office
WASHINGTON — President
Barack Obama has presided over a
heyday for the gun industry despite
predictions by the National Rifle
Association four years ago that he
would be the “most anti-gun presi-
dent in American history.” Gun buy-
ers fear that Obama wants to restrict
their purchases, especially if he
were re-elected.
An analysis by the Associated
Press of data tracking the health of
the gun industry shows that sales are
on the rise, so much that some gun
manufacturers can’t make enough
guns fast enough. Major gun compa-

ers is increasing for the first time in
nearly 20 years.
Around the nation
By Julie Pace
and Christopher S. Rugaber
Unemployment rates fell last month
in nearly all of the battleground
states that will determine the presi-
dential winner, giving President
Barack Obama fresh fodder to argue
that voters should stick with him in
an election focused squarely on the
The declines, however, were
modest. It’s unknown whether they
will do much to sway undecided
voters who are considering whether
to back Republican Mitt Romney or
give the Democratic president four
more years.
The statewide data released by the
Labor Department on Friday pro-
vide one of the last comprehensive
looks at the health of the U.S. econ-
omy ahead of Election Day, now a
little more than two weeks away.
Voters will get one more update on
the national unemployment rate just
days before the election. But the
state reports matter greatly to the
Obama and Romney campaigns,
which believe the public’s impres-
sions of the economy are shaped
mostly by local conditions rather
than national ones.
In Ohio, perhaps the most crucial
battleground state for both Obama
and Romney, the unemployment
rate ticked down last month to 7
percent from 7.2 percent, below the
national average of 7.8 percent.
“I knew a lot of people who were
laid off and now they’re working,”
said firefighter Matt Sparling, an
Obama supporter from Parma
Heights, Ohio. “So something good
is happening here.”
Obama’s team is banking on the
president getting credit for improve-
ments in Ohio’s economy, particu-
larly for the bailout of the auto
industry, which has deep roots in the
Midwestern swing state. But
Romney has opportunities to run on
the economy in Ohio, too. The state
actually lost nearly 13,000 jobs in
September and the drop in the
unemployment rate was probably
due in part to people dropping out
of the job market.

According to the California Legislative
Analyst’s Office, Proposition 35 would raise
fines for human traffickers from a maximum
of $100,000 to a maximum of $1.5 million.
Seventy percent of the money would go to
public agencies and nonprofit organizations
that provide services to victims, and the
remaining 30 percent would go to law
enforcement anti-human trafficking opera-
“The state money may go to clients like
ours, or it may go out to raids for prostitu-
tion,” she said. “[The money] may go to
something not helpful to our particular
Liou argues that current state law allows
survivors to sue traffickers and get money
through restitution.
“Many people see this as a rescue situa-
tion, but we want to empower clients,” she
said. “Mandatory [state] fines deplete the
assets our clients can get for restitution.”
Meanwhile, other victim advocates say
this criticism from their peers are misguid-
“I’m really disappointed in these advoca-
cy agencies that are fighting this proposition
that will ultimately help children,” said Nola
Brantley, executive director of Oakland-
based Motivating, Inspiring, Supporting and
Serving Sexually Exploited Youth
(MISSSEY). Brantley said she has worked
with more than 700 sexually exploited girls.
She is in favor of Proposition 35 because she
feels the money would go to helping vic-
The opponents who argue that this
money will take away from restitution are
wrong because these victims do not sue
traffickers, said Brantley.
“I’ve never met one girl that was able to
sue her exploiter and get restitution, never,”
she said. “I think the money being directed
to the recovery process is a huge win.”
Brantley understood that money would not
be going directly to her clients, but said she
would continue to work with the writers of
Proposition 35 to advocate for the money
going to victims’ housing and other pro-
“It’s not the end, it’s the beginning,” she
Boosting penalties
The co-author and major funder of
Proposition 35 is former Facebook Chief
Privacy Officer Chris Kelly, who has con-
tributed more than $2 million to the cam-
paign. He previously worked to combat
child predators’ use of Facebook. He worked
with New York Attorney General Andrew
Cuomo on the e-STOP Act, which requires
sex offenders to register all online screen
names and profiles. When Kelly failed to
pass similar legislation in California, he and
Daphne Phung, founder of California
Against Slavery, turned to the initiative
process to make changes to human traffick-
ing law.
He is surprised by the opposition from
trafficking victim advocates.
“But we’ve gone outside Sacramento
channels and that makes some people mad,”
he said. “Most of the people [against this
measure] have an ideological opposition to
increased fines in general.”
Kelly argued that 70 percent of human
trafficking fines already go to victims’ serv-
ices and that this proposition is simply
adopting the current law’s distribution of
money to victims.
“I wish they could point to a case where a
victim has sued a trafficker,” he said. “I
haven’t seen one.”
Gangs are increasingly moving to labor
and sex trafficking because the economic
risk is low relative to the penalties they face
for drug trafficking, said Kelly.
“We want to dissuade that with tougher
penalties,” he said. “We do want to radically
increase fines because these are economical-
ly driven crimes.”
The heightened penalty approach is not
the best way to help victims, said Perla
Flores, director of Solutions to Violence at
Community Solutions, an anti-domestic vio-
lence group in Santa Clara County that
works with human trafficking victims.
“There is a lot of research that says
increasing jail terms is not an effective pre-
vention strategy,” said Flores. “Not one
organization could meet all the needs that
human trafficking victims have.”
Proposition 35 is sending the wrong mes-
sage by distinguishing between labor and
sexual exploitation, she said. It doesn’t mat-
ter if the person is forced into prostitution or
laboring in the fields, they are victims, she
According to the legislative analyst, the
maximum penalty for all labor traffickers
would be raised from five years to 12 years.
The maximum penalties for a sex trafficker
of an adult or minor would be changed from
five and eight years respectively, to 20 years
and a life term.
“This legislation is not victim-centered,”
said Flores. “Sexual exploitation is low-
hanging fruit, whereas labor is disguised in
plain sight.”
How could Proposition 35 have helped the
victims whose testimonies can be seen on
the ‘Yes on Proposition 35’ website?
“The key difference for girls and some
boys is that this will change law enforce-
ment training,” Kelly said.
The proposition requires a minimum of
two hours of training on human trafficking.
“This will force them to look at trafficking
victims as trafficked victims, not as prosti-
tutes,” said Kelly, who lost a campaign for
attorney general in 2010.
“Anything that defines them as victims is
critical,” said Brantley of MISSSEY. She
praised the law enforcement training provi-
sion as a step in the right direction.
“Even an hour of training changes the way
people practice,” said Brantley, after con-
ducting a training for Los Angeles County
delinquency judges. “Some people who
work with children every day are surprised
that there is trafficking here; social workers,
judges, DAs.”
Law enforcement training is of particular
importance, though, because officers are
often the first to come in contact with a vic-
tim, she said.
“Some people view them as prostitutes,”
said Brantley. “It would be great if they ran
into a law enforcement officer who was
trained and sensitive and could connect them
with services.”
But opponents say the proposition’s
emphasis on sex trafficking over other types
would result in law officers only looking for
this type of crime.
“When we further criminalization and
look for the perfect victim, we miss people,”
said Edith Kinney, a visiting professor at
Mills College who has studied human traf-
ficking for 10 years.
She is concerned about the narrowing of
the definition of human trafficking to the
sexual exploitation of young girls.
“I have never seen anything of how this
would affect boys or trans folks in commer-
cial sex trade,” she said. “If officers are
trained to look for young girls, that’s what
they are going to find.”

Letters to the editor
By Irwin David
s I biked through the intersection
of California Drive and Broadway
in Burlingame on the morning of
Friday, Oct. 12, I observed the Beacon
service station attendant changing the gaso-
line price sign. I pulled over to ask what
direction the price was changing. He
explained that the cash price was going
down by three cents to $4.629.
While most drivers will no doubt feel
relief that prices are finally on their way
down after going up an unprecedented 50
cents in the first week of October, most
experts agree that the prices go down slow-
er than they go up — nature of the busi-
ness, I suppose.
As the Daily Journal reported the day
before, “Gas prices drop by half a cent,” the
new Beacon cash price was now less than
the statewide average while their credit
price, three cents higher, was the average
price as of Oct. 10. With prices most likely
to reduce even further in the coming weeks,
it presents a good time to reflect on the
causes and solutions, if any, for the enor-
mous gas price spike we just experienced.
While the article noted that Chevron’s
Richmond refinery’s “crude unit would
remain closed through the end of the year,”
the effect on gas prices is unclear.
The reduced production of the Richmond
facility, combined with the temporary shut-
down of Exxon Mobil’s refinery in
Torrance on Oct. 1 due to a power outage,
reduced production in Phillips 66 plants in
Rodeo and Arroyo Grande, and a Chevron
pipeline in the Central Valley shut because
of chemical problems, all contributed to
that “perfect storm” in
the refinery and distribu-
tion system causing gas
prices to spike.
While gas prices have
always been volatile, oil
consumption in
California has been
decreasing since 2006,
notwithstanding an
increasing population. Californians have
been driving less and more efficiently, and
the result has been a surplus of refinery
products, causing California’s 14 refineries
to resort to exporting their products. With
excess existing refinery capacity when all
are in operation, don’t expect to see new
refineries constructed. In fact, the opposite
could happen, as was seen this summer in
the Northeast where three refineries in the
Philadelphia area were threatened with clo-
sure. Delta Airlines will reopen one to pro-
duce jet fuel.
So why aren’t prices going down if we
are using less oil? About 64 percent of the
price of a gallon of gas is determined by
the world market price of oil. Even if the
United States were to produce all the oil we
consume, the price would be determined by
the market. While we in California and the
United States and Europe have been using
less oil, the developing world is increasing
demand, and tensions in the Mideast add to
In California, we pay more for gas due to
the reformulated gasoline we use — pro-
duced by those 14 refineries. The special
blend is due to our bad air, sadly the worst
in the nation, though fortunately not here in
the Bay Area. Republican governors
Reagan and Wilson, and President Nixon
all contributed to the Air Resources Board
determining the special blend that has
saved thousands of lives and countless vis-
its to emergency rooms by those with respi-
ratory problems, particularly for residents
of the Central Valley and South Coast.
While Gov. Jerry Brown’s Oct. 7 decision
to allow the winter blend of gasoline to be
produced now rather than Oct. 31 will
lower gas prices, we shouldn’t expect
future decisions to change the blend to
lower prices.
So, what can we do?
As one oilman stated, there may not be a
solution. “It’s the price we pay for living in
California,” said Jay McKeeman, vice pres-
ident of the California Independent Oil
Marketers Association.
The only real solution to rising fuel
prices is to make decisions that result in
using less of it. Whether it be the changing
the fuel of the vehicles we drive, the fuel
efficiency of our vehicles or how often we
drive, ultimately it is in our hands as to
how much “pain at the pump” we endure.

Water rates in Burlingame
I just received notice of Burlingame’s pro-
posal to increase rates for water and sewer. I
have written to the city of Burlingame
protesting this proposal. To be effective,
there must be a significant number of proper-
ty owners expressing opposition. We are
given one opportunity to be heard, that is by
writing to the city and attending the town
hall meeting Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. The city of
Burlingame must receive our letters of
protest prior to Nov. 5.
Please be reminded: Burlingame has a 19.6
percent increase in water rates in 2003, then
another 12 percent in 2008.
Your letter of protest to the city of
Burlingame must include your home
address, the parcel number of the property
and your telephone number and be signed
by the owner. If we act together, can we
really achieve benefits for all Burlingame
residents? Let’s find out. We must act
together. Thank you for your help.

What is our leader thinking?
Regarding Ed Hughot’s letter, “We need
leadership,” in the Oct. 17 edition of the
Daily Journal, Hughot is correct to ask what
leadership we want and what direction we
are looking for. He is also correct that a
strong leader who takes you in the wrong
direction is a bad alternative. Bush clearly
made his mistakes, some of which we are
paying for.
We ordinary citizens have no clue about
real responsibility for many things that affect
us. But we are paralyzed without leadership,
and we should expect our leaders to be hon-
est with us when the truth is obvious. On
Sept. 12, I saw a video showing the corpse of
Ambassador Stevens being carried roughly
by a crowd in Benghazi. At about the same
time, President Obama announced that
Libyans had tried to help the still-living
Ambassador to a hospital for medical treat-
ment. Bob Dylan once said famously, “You
don’t need to be a weatherman to know
which way the wind blows.”
The CIA and Obama had much more infor-
mation than I did on Sept. 12. Yet only on
Oct. 16 did Obama publicly take responsibil-
ity for this horrific experience as our leader.
A leader protects his people. I make no
apologies for Bush. But President Obama’s
routine kowtowing to the Muslim world con-
tinued by inferring that a movie was a cause
of the Benghazi fiasco when he knew the
truth. Last week, Obama appointed Salam al-
Marayati, an Islamic supremacist, as a U.S.
representative to the largest human rights
conference in the world. What is our leader
really thinking?

U.S. consulate
attack in Libya
— The Daily News, Bowling Green, Ky.
ust how damn stupid does the Obama
Administration believe the American
people are?
The answer is pretty damn stupid based on
the highly implausible and absurd fairy tale
spouted for days by administration officials
that the attack on our consulate in Benghazi,
Libya, was the spontaneous reaction to an
obscure video.
White House spokesman Jay Carney and
United Nations Ambassadors Susan Rice
were among the high administration officials
who were parroting this party line regarding
a violent attack that took the life of U.S.
Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three
more Americans.
Americans, however, are a lot sharper than
this administration gives them credit for.
Many citizens were not buying the Obama
narrative from day one. It seemed more than
passing strange that this attack occurred on
the anniversary of 9/11 and that the sponta-
neous mob was conveniently armed with
automatic weapons and grenade launchers
and from all accounts were well organized.
These facts strongly suggested a coordinat-
ed terrorist attack to the man on the street
who was also hearing media reports that the
president of Libya was very adamant that
this was not a spontaneous event related to
the video.
Now we learn that our State Department
has broken with the administration and says
it never believed the Benghazi attack was a
film protest.
Good for the State Department. We com-
mend them for not falling on its sword to
provide cover for the utter stupidity demon-
strated by its administration.
Americans over a certain age remember
the seizure of the U.S. embassy in Iran dur-
ing the presidency of Jimmy Carter.
That brings to mind a bumper sticker we
saw that suggests that Obama’s presidency
represents Carter’s second term.
It certainly appears in the aftermath of
Benghazi that the sticker is on target.
Election season
and conspiracies
— Waco (Texas) Tribune-Herald
or all our enlightenment in this infor-
mation age, conspiracy theories per-
meate American life, especially poli-
tics. Some of us will embrace such theories
because they very conveniently rubber-stamp
suspicions or biases we have, even when evi-
dence is clearly lacking.
Latest example of this: the wild-eyed claim
that the Bureau of Labor Statistics data
reflecting a drop in the national unemploy-
ment rate was “cooked” to help President
Barack Obama win re-election. No less than
retired General Electric CEO Jack Welch,
once a sage in matters of business, accused
“these Chicago guys” of altering numbers in
the monthly jobs report to show the lowest
unemployment rate since Obama took office.
Welch subsequently admitted he has no
evidence the labor numbers are being doc-
tored, yet refuses to withdraw his widely
twittered comment. Others have jumped on
the bandwagon, again without a shred of
proof of some massive conspiracy in the U.S.
Department of Labor to fix numbers.
Sadly, this election has seen more absurd
conspiracy theories and unverified claims
than we ought to see — no doubt a testament
to the high feelings in both political camps in
a nation almost evenly divided in presidential
preferences. We only hope undecided voters
are discriminating enough to size up such
claims for what they truly are: balderdash
served up by desperate political hacks, public
tricksters and publicity-seekers.

NEW YORK — Poor corporate earn-
ings reports pounded the stock market
Friday in a sour end to an otherwise
strong week of trading. The Dow Jones
industrial average fell more than 200
points for its worst day in four months.
Disappointing results from three
giants of the Dow — Microsoft, General
Electric and McDonald’s — were partly
to blame. The Standard & Poor’s 500
index fared even worse, as widespread
worries about companies’ ability to keep
churning out better profits drove the

WASHINGTON — It’s been 43
months since the last deadly airline crash
in the United States, the longest period
without a fatal domestic accident since
commercial aviation expanded after
World War II. That sounds like unvar-
nished good news, but one consequence
of having such a remarkable record is that
it’s difficult to justify imposing costly
new safety rules on the economically
fragile industry.
In analyzing costs and benefits, federal
rules assign a value of $6.2 million to
each life saved. Even modest changes in
regulations can cost the industry hun-
dreds of millions of dollars when spread
across a number of years.
“The extraordinary safety record that
has been achieved in the United States
ironically could be the single biggest rea-
son the (Federal Aviation Administration)
isn’t able to act proactively and ensure
safety into the future,” said Bill Voss,
president of the industry-funded Flight
Safety Foundation in Alexandria, Va.,
which promotes global airline safety. The
past decade has been the airline industry’s
safest ever.
Last year, the FAA revised rules on
pilot work schedules and rest periods to
address concerns that tired pilots were
making mistakes, sometimes with fatal
results. But the agency dropped require-
ments that would have extended the new
rules to cargo carriers. FAA officials said
the rule changes would have cost the
cargo industry as much as $300 million
over 10 years.
Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood
has urged cargo executives to voluntarily
comply with the new rules, but so far he’s
had no takers.
“We’re doing rulemaking in a system
that is very, very safe,” LaHood said in an
interview. “Sometimes it does get to be
difficult to produce the cost justification
for the kinds of rules that we’re promot-
Last year, the FAA missed a congres-
sionally mandated deadline for issuing
new regulations on pilot training.
Congress ordered the new rules after the
nation’s last fatal airline crash, on Feb. 12,
2009, when a startled captain overrode a
key safety system as his airliner lost lift
and began to stall.
An investigation showed the plane
would have been able to fly had the cap-
tain responded correctly. Instead, it plum-
meted into a house near Buffalo, N.Y.,
killing all 49 people aboard and a man in
the home. Investigators cited pilot training
lapses by the regional airline, Colgan Air,
as a factor.
The FAA began work on revamping
training rules in 1999. Regulators had pro-
posed new rules just before the Colgan
crash but effectively withdrew them for
more work after the accident.
Fatal air crash decline presents new challenge
By Richard Lardner
WASHINGTON — A new White
House executive order would direct U.S.
spy agencies to share the latest intelli-
gence about cyberthreats with compa-
nies operating electric grids, water
plants, railroads and other vital indus-
tries to help protect them from electron-
ic attacks, according to a copy obtained
by the Associated Press.
The seven-page draft order, which is
being finalized, takes shape as the
Obama administration expresses grow-
ing concern that Iran could be the first
country to use cyberterrorism against the
United States. The military is ready to
retaliate if the U.S. is hit by cyber-
weapons, Defense Secretary Leon
Panetta said. But the U.S. also is poorly
prepared to prevent such an attack,
which could damage or knock out criti-
cal services that are part of everyday life.
The White House declined to say
when the president will sign the order.
The draft order would put the
Department of Homeland Security in
charge of organizing an information-
sharing network that rapidly distributes
sanitized summaries of top-secret intelli-
gence reports about known cyberthreats
that identify a specific target. With these
warnings, known as tear lines, the own-
ers and operators of essential U.S. busi-
nesses would be better able to block
potential attackers from gaining access
to their computer systems.
An organized, broad-based approach
for sharing cyberthreat information gath-
ered by the government is widely viewed
as essential for any plan to protect U.S.
computer networks from foreign
nations, terrorist groups and hackers.
Existing efforts to exchange information
are narrowly focused on specific indus-
tries, such as the finance sector, and have
had varying degrees of success.
After lawsuit threat,
Twitter to pull racist posts
PARIS — Twitter agreed to pull racist
and anti-Semitic tweets under a pair of
French hash tags after a Jewish group
threatened to sue the social network for
running afoul of national laws against
hate speech, the organization said. The
decision came a day after Twitter bowed
to German law and blocked an account of
a banned neo-Nazi group there.
The freewheeling social network is
increasingly running up against European
anti-discrimination laws, many of which
date to the aftermath of the Holocaust by
governments that acknowledged the con-
tribution of years of hate speech to the
Nazi attempt to annihilate the Jews.
Yahoo to exit South
Korea by end of year
SEOUL, South Korea — Yahoo Inc.
said it will close its South Korean web
portal and an Internet advertising busi-
ness, cutting its losses in a market where
it has struggled for over a decade.
Yahoo’s South Korea unit said Friday
its Seoul office with over 200 employees
will be shut by the end of this year. The
decision comes after former Google
executive Marissa Mayer took the helm
at the struggling U.S. Internet company
in July.

ST. LOUIS — The big curveball was back,
and Barry Zito mixed in some well-placed
fastballs, too.
It was just like the good old days.
Zito was at his best Friday night, pitching
San Francisco back into the NL championship
series with a 5-0 win over the St. Louis
Cardinals that narrowed its deficit to 3-2.
“All things considered, you know, there’s
definitely some playoff memories there, but
they were in a different uniform,” the soft-
tossing lefty said after his first playoff win in
six years sent the series back to San Francisco.
“This was probably the biggest one for me.”
Game 6 will begin Sunday in the twilight at
AT&T Park, with Ryan Vogelsong pitching
against the Cardinals’
Chris Carpenter.
“I’m sure Carpenter is
going to be on top of his
game, as always,”
Vogelsong said. “I’m
going to have to be sharp
because with him on the
mound one run can lose a
game for you.”
Zito looked like the same guy who won 23
games and the 2002 AL Cy Young Award with
the Athletics. He retired 11 batters in a row in
one stretch while scattering six hits with six
strikeouts in 7 2-3 innings.
Giants catcher Buster Posey twice tapped
Zito on the chest when he was pulled in the
eighth. It was Zito’s fifth postseason win but
first since 2006, shortly before he left the A’s
and signed a $126 million, seven-year con-

It was homecoming for Mills Friday night
and the San Mateo football team was the rude
house guest.
The Bearcats solidified themselves as a
Peninsula Athletic League Lake Division con-
tender with a thoroughly dominating 35-3 win
over the Vikings.
“This is as well as we’ve played (this year),”
said San Mateo coach Jeff Scheller. “I asked
one of my assistants who the player of the
night was and there wasn’t one. Everyone con-
San Mateo (3-0 PAL Lake, 4-3 overall) won
its fourth straight game using a balanced
offensive attack and a suffocating defense to
beat down a Mills team that was one of the
biggest surprises in the PAL this season.
Running backs Kevin Garcia-Rodela and Line
Latu combined to rush for 205 yards, while
quarterback Taylor Sanft threw for 131 yards
and two touchdowns.
Garcia-Rodela had his biggest game of the
season, rushing for 107 yards and two touch-
downs on 13 carries, including a 49-yard gain
down to the Mills 5-yard line on the second
play of the game. While the Vikings made a
defensive stand to keep San Mateo out of the
end zone, it only delayed the inevitable.
“He’s a driver,” Scheller said of Garcia-
Rodela. “He blasts through the line of scrim-
mage. [He and Latu] compliment each other.”
Defensively, the Bearcats did not allow
Mills (1-1, 3-3-1) to mount much of an attack.
San Mateo forced five Vikings turnovers,
including three interceptions, and held them to
just four first downs — two in each half. The
Bearcats recorded three sacks and held Mills
to just 101 yards of total offense.
“Any time you can hold a team to that many
yards, it’s amazing,” Scheller said. “They have
some playmakers and we didn’t let them get in
a rhythm.”
The Bearcats’ first drive of the game was the
closest they would come to scoring in the first
half as the teams exchanged punts for most of
the opening 12 minutes. But San Mateo found

The battle for Redwood City football
supremacy between Woodside and Sequoia High
School started as such — two prideful teams fly-
ing around making plays and taking it to one
But come the second half, the Cherokees
turned the game into more of a one-way war,
handing the Wildcat defense way too much
offensive firepower and running away with a 32-
7 victory.
“We’ve been looking for four quarters of foot-
ball all year,” said Sequoia head coach Rob
Poulos, “and I think this is the closest I’ve seen.
First quarter was a little shaky, but we built up
from there.”
“ I can’t knock the heart of our guys,” said
Woodside head coach Josh Bowie. “It grew two
sizes today. We had a tough week of practice. We
had a hard game. Sequoia is a great program,
they’re a model program for us and they do
everything right.”
The Cherokees could do very little wrong in
quarters two through four. Following
Woodside’s lone touchdown, on a 50-yard fum-
ble recovery to the house, Sequoia dominated. In
the first half, the Cherokees held the Wildcats to
21 yards of total offense. And for the game,
Woodside amassed 85, turning the ball over four
“We’ve been dealing with adversity all year
and our guys are really starting to grow as a
team,” Bowie said. “[There are] a lot of bumps in
the road anytime you’re doing something new,
anytime you’re taking over a program and you’re
building. You’re going to encounter things that
just don’t work out.”
Friday night, Woodside can hang its hat on a
first quarter that visibly frustrated the Cherokees,
the running of David Teu (84 yards on 15 carries)
and a Seth Humble defensive touchdown.

In a season full of big tests, the College of
San Mateo football team has the equivalent of
a mid-season final exam this week and it
comes in the form of the No. 1 ranked team in
the state.
City College of San Francisco hosts the
Bulldogs on Saturday in what is the ultimate
measuring stick for the players in CSM blue
and white. At 6-0, the Rams have owned the
top spot in the state rankings since the begin-
ning of the year and they come into the game
averaging a robust 48 points per game on
“It’s the most important one because it’s the
next one,” said Tim Tulloch, CSM assistant
head coach and defensive coordinator. “I
always feel like there’s a higher sense of
importance on conference games then the
non-conference games because the confer-
ence wins are the ones that determine whether
or not you go to NorCal. The rankings and all
that stuff are good, but in our mind the only
rankings that matter are the ones at the end of
the season.
“That’s why the young men come here, to
get to play this schedule. They’re 6-0 and
that’s the great thing about playing in this con-
ference; you get to play against great teams
like San Francisco. It’s going to push you
every week to be at your best.”
The good news for the Bulldogs is they’re
coming off perhaps their best performance of
the season — a 37-3 schooling of Foothill
College that has them at 1-0. CSM dominated
the game defensively, holding the Owls to just
107 yards of total offense.
“I was just happy that we finally came
together as a defense,” said CSM safety and
former Serra Padre Matt Viñal. “It felt great
not to let them into the end zone for once, and
finally coming out with a win that we felt
proud about. It was pretty cool because every
time I came upfield, I wasn’t even coming

When Capuchino running back
Justin Ewing ripped off an 82-yard
touchdown on the Mustangs’ first play
from scrimmage, it appeared they
would have their way with visiting
Hillsdale Friday afternoon in San
And the Mustangs did — for the first
half as they built a 24-0 lead. But
Capuchino was forced to work as the
Knights rallied for a 23-point third
quarter to trail just 30-23 going into the
fourth quarter.
But Capuchino pulled it together in
the fourth quarter to record a 40-30 win
over the Knights.
“Cardiac arrest,” is how Capuchino
coach Adam Hyndman described his
feelings in the third quarter. “They kept
us on our heels.”
Capuchino (2-0 PAL Lake, 3-4 over-
all) can thank Ewing and the offensive
line for pulling out the win. The line of
Brandon Loria, Royal Ale, Julian Fang,
George Fifita, Xeryus Collins and tight
end Zack Kohtz paved the way for
another big day from Ewing, who fin-
ished with 363 yards and four touch-
downs on 38 carries.
The Mustangs needed everyone of
those yards to offset a huge afternoon
from Hillsdale quarterback Cole
Carrithers, who completed 25 of 55
passes for 417 yards and three touch-
“We know we can throw,” said
Hillsdale coach Mike Parodi. “So we
kept doing it.”
Brandon Butcher was Carrithers’
favorite target Friday as he finished
with 15 catches for 193 yards and a
If Hillsdale (0-3, 0-6) had completed
any of its first-half drives, or found a
way to slow down Ewing, who had 212
yards and three scores on 14 first-half
carries, the game might have been dif-
ferent. But the Knights’ first two drives
ended in turnovers and they had anoth-
er drive stopped on downs at the
Capuchino 6-yard line.
“The first half, we just didn’t final-
ize,” Parodi said.
Capuchino, on the other hand,
scored on all four of its first-half pos-
sessions. After taking quick 7-0 lead
on Ewing’s 82-yard burst, the
Mustangs made it 10-0 on a Jamie
Vaquiz 21-yard field goal. Following a
Hillsdale punt, Capuchino went up 17-
0 on a two-play, 64-yard drive when
Ewing scored on 63-yard run. The
Mustangs capped the first half with a
10-play, 82-yard drive that culminated
in 2-yard Ewing plunge to lead 24-0 at
Despite being down big, Hillsdale
didn’t quit. The Knights opened the
second half by recovering an onside
kick and needed just two plays to get
on the scoreboard. After a 15-yard
Carrithers-to-J.D. Giannini comple-
tion, Giancarlo Boscacci weaved his
way into the end zone from 30 yards
Capuchino answered back with a 10-
play, 51-yard drive to take a 30-7 lead
after a Paea Dauwe 4-yard bootleg.
Then things got really interesting.
Hillsdale went 65 yards on five plays
for a score when A.J. Bernal turned a
screen pass into a 50-yard touchdown
to make the score 30-13. The Knights
then forced a Capuchino fumble on its
next offensive play and turned that into
a quick score when Carrithers hooked
up with Butcher for a 31-yard score.
A fumbled snap on Capuchino’s
next play from scrimmage was recov-
ered by Hillsdale and a Salvador
Hernandez 32-yard field goal cut the
Mustangs’ to seven, 30-23 going into
the fourth quarter.
“[The offense] started to click in the
second half,” Parodi said. “This is too
good a group of kids for it not to click.”
Following his team’s second fumble
on as many plays, Hyndman called a
timeout and huddled up his team and
told them to get their act together.
The Mustangs heard the message
loud and clear. The Mustangs
regrouped and rode Ewing to 10
fourth-quarter points, which negated a
final Hillsdale score when Carrithers
hooked up with Justin Kelly for a 36-
yard score with no time left.
“We told [the team] before the game,
we’re trying to win a division champi-
onship,” Hyndman said. “[Hillsdale is]
trying to win their first game.”

Statistics don’t always tell the
entire story in a football game —
but there are times when the sim-
plest one can, in fact, tell a huge
chunk of it.
In Sacred Heart Prep’s 25-18 win
over Aragon, it was total second-
half plays — as in 44 to 16 in favor
of the Gators. In a game where the
Dons were pretty explosive when
they did have the ball, the Gators
used the “best defense is a good
offense” ideology and backed it up
with a solid defensive performance
“We just decided that we needed
to run the ball,” said SHP head
coach Peter Lavorato. “If we could-
n’t beat them that way, then they’re
better than us. That’s our deal,
“It’s obviously one of those sleep-
less nights where you go over every
play call and question everything
you called in the red zone,” said
Aragon head coach Steve Sell.
“That’s part of the deal. It’s a tough
one. I’m proud of them. We fought
back and gave ourselves a chance at
the end.”
Sell is talking about a five-play,
76-yard drive that pulled the Dons
to within seven with less than a
minute to play in the game. But
until that drive, SHP dominated the
second half. The Gators had run 41
plays to Aragon’s 10 and had out-
gained them 155 to 61.
“We just controlled the ball,”
Lavorato said, “we just ran the ball,
we decided we were going to try
and pound them a bit and we did.
We didn’t know if we could
because, I think we’re a little under-
sized. But we were able to execute.
Our running backs fought hard.”
The Gators were near perfect on
third down in the second half and
when they were stuffed, Lavorato
did not hesitate going for it on
fourth — SHP was perfect in a trio
of attempts.
“I think we could’ve kept running
the ball and scoring,” Sell said, “but
not being able to get them off the
field, there was nothing we could
do. They did a good job. We didn’t
want to get into that kind of game
where they could just control the

OAKLAND — Maurice Jones-
Drew looks at Oakland’s Darren
McFadden and sees a running back
who has the total package — that
rare combination of size and speed
that makes other elite running backs
in the NFL take notice.
McFadden loves watching Jones-
Drew run the ball for the
Jacksonville Jaguars, praising his
tenacity that allows him to get yards
out of the toughest of situations.
Jones-Drew and McFadden are
widely considered among the best
running backs in the NFL going into
Sunday’s game between the Jaguars
(1-4) and Raiders (1-4). They have
something else in common that is
much less enviable: they have been
unable to turn their teams into win-
“It gets frus-
trating because
you work so
hard throughout
the week and
throughout the
offseason to get
into your best
shape,” Jones-
Drew said. “At
the end of the
day we just
want to go out there and win some
games. Every loss is frustrating. But
at the same time I wouldn’t want
anything to come easy to me or to
us. We have to fight for it. When you
fight for things you earn it and that
happiness is much more than when
you’re given certain things.”
Jones-Drew has made the playoffs
just once in his seven-year career,
coming as Fred Taylor’s backup in
2007. Since taking over the starting
job in 2009, the Jaguars have failed
to post a winning record even
though he led the NFL in rushing
during that period.
A slow start this season indicates
possibly another year of disappoint-
“I’m always optimistic. You never
know,” Jones-Drew said. “I think
everybody’s mood is a sense of
urgency. We dug ourselves a hole
and the only way to get out is to take
it one play at a time. We can’t really
dwell on what happened the last
couple of weeks. We had some
games that we felt we were leading
and got out of control.”
McFadden came into the league
as a heralded college player picked
fourth overall in 2008 and has
shown the ability to be a game-
breaking back when healthy. But the
Raiders have yet to post a winning
season despite his presence.
He has strug-
gled a bit this
season adjusting
to a new block-
ing system, aver-
aging just 3.2
yards per carry,
but feels poised
for a breakout.
“I feel like
we’re getting
t h e r e , ”
McFadden said. “We still have some
things that we need to clean up. It
wasn’t a good average but overall I
felt like we ran the ball pretty good.
I feel like our running game is get-
ting to where it needs to be.”
The Raiders, despite losing 23-20
last week at undefeated Atlanta, are
perhaps coming off their best game
of the season. The running game
provided more consistency even if
McFadden was unable to break any
long runs, the passing game was
sharp despite two costly turnovers
by Carson Palmer and the defense
intercepted three passes and shut
down Atlanta’s running game.
But the result was all too familiar
as the Falcons drove to the winning
field goal with 1 second left to send
the Raiders to another loss.
“We weren’t satisfied in any way,
we weren’t happy in any way,”
Palmer said. “We wanted to win the
game and we didn’t. You got to con-
tinue to work, you got to continue to
grind and just believe in each other,
believe in the game plan, believe in
the coaching. You look at a game
film, you improve from it. That’s
really all you can do. We’re not
going to sit back and be happy about
statistics. We’re going to sit back
and figure out why we didn’t win,
look at ways we can get better and
try to improve.”
Top backs don’t equal success for Jags, Raiders
By Antonio Gonzalez
BERKELEY— California tight
end Richard Rodgers never heard of
The Play for most of his childhood,
even though he was raised by one of
its masterminds.
Growing up in Massachusetts, he
had watched the television replays of
the five increasingly improbable later-
als that led to the winning touchdown
on the last-second kickoff return into
a band-blocked end zone, with Cal’s
Kevin Moen flattening a Stanford
trombone player to punctuate one of
the most iconic moments in college
football history.
Not until about fifth grade did
Rodgers recognize a particular player
“Seeing it on TV all those times and
then actually realizing that it was my
dad, that’s basically when I knew,”
said Rodgers, whose father, Richard
Rodgers Sr., tossed two of the laterals
that stunned Stanford 25-20 in the
1982 Big Game. “Now we laugh
about it and joke with my dad about it.
It’s pretty cool.”
Thirty years since those famous —
or infamous, depending on which side
of San Francisco Bay one belongs —
laterals lifted the long running rivalry
into the national spotlight, the 115th
Big Game at remodeled Memorial
Stadium on Saturday will be a chance
for the next generation of players to
make their own memories.
After all, most of them have little
ties to The Play — and none were
even born yet.
Stanford (4-2, 2-1) is trying to stay
in contention for the Pac-12 North
Division title and rebound from a dev-
astating defeat in overtime at Notre
Dame, while California (3-4, 2-2) is
looking to stop a two-game losing
streak to the Cardinal and move a win
closer to bowl eligibility after a slow
start this season.
The Play? Well, it’s just another
scintillating subplot now.
“I remember when I first started
getting recruited by Cal, I was like,
‘Oh, this is where The Play hap-
pened,”’ said Golden Bears center
Brian Schwenke, who grew up in
Hawaii and Southern California and
also was recruited by Stanford. “I
knew The Play, really, before I knew
This week has been more of a his-
tory lesson than reliving the past for
present players on both sides.
Rodgers, whose father is now an
assistant special teams coach for the
Carolina Panthers, didn’t even know
until last year who Joe Starkey was.
The broadcaster’s famous, frenetic
call — “Oh, the band is out on the
field!” — might be more synonymous
with The Play than anybody actually
After a game last year at San
Francisco’s AT&T Park, where the
Bears played during Memorial
Stadium’s renovation, Rodgers’ moth-
er told him that anybody on the street
in the Bay Area would know
Starkey’s name. So she pulled the car
over and had him ask a stranger to
prove the point.
“The person I asked was Joe
Starkey,” Rodgers said, laughing.
“That was pretty crazy.”
One’s perspective on The Play real-
ly depends on where his or her alle-
giances lie.
Most Stanford sympathizers still
wonder whether The Play should have
been blown dead at least twice, either
on what looks like an early tackle or a
late forward lateral. Those in Berkeley
bristle at that notion and believe
Stanford fans are bitter that they
spoiled John Elway’s final game and
maybe even cost him the Heisman
Trophy won by Georgia’s Herschel
The contentiousness is so strong
that depending on which team holds
the Stanford Axe, which goes to the
winner, the score of the 1982 game is
“There’s a significant portion of
those of us here at Stanford that just
don’t believe that play should have
continued,” Cardinal coach David
Shaw said. “That’s never going to
change, and I think that only adds to
the lore of that play.”
Asked for his response this week,
Cal coach Jeff Tedford said: “Of
course it was a legal touchdown. What
kind of question is that?”
Tedford’s ties to The Play run on
both sides.
In the summer of 1979, he played
quarterback opposite Elway — and
with Moen — in the North-South
Shrine Game at the Rose Bowl, jok-
ing, “I was just happy to be there.”
Then Tedford’s Fresno State team
played UNLV on Nov. 20, 1982, and
he was excited to learn later that night
that Moen scored Cal’s winning
“At the time, you didn’t know what
kind of impact or history it would
make,” Tedford said. “It’s probably
the most famous play in football his-
While The Play has become the sin-
gle largest part of the Big Game’s
hefty history, it’s hardly the only
memory of a rivalry that dates back to
1892 — when future President
Herbert Hoover was Stanford’s team
Shaw’s favorite Big Game moment
came watching from the Stanford
sideline as a true freshman in 1990,
when Ed McCaffrey caught a 19-yard
touchdown pass with 12 seconds left.
Stanford went for the winning two-
point conversion but missed, leaving
Cal ahead 25-24.
Cal fans rushed the field but refer-
ees called a 15-yard delay of game
penalty because time still remained.
Stanford recovered the ensuing onside
kick, and somehow in the scrum kick-
er John Hopkins’ practice net on the
sideline had been taken away.
“He just shrugs his shoulders and
starts putting balls down and just
starts to nail them into the stands,”
Shaw said. “Here I am this freshman.
I was in absolute disbelief.”
Hopkins kicked a 39-yard field goal
to give Stanford a 27-24 win in what
many consider the second greatest
Big Game ending — or perhaps the
best for those in Cardinal colors.
Tedford considers his best Big
Game memory his first as Cal’s coach
in 2002.
The Bears stopped Stanford’s
record seven-game winning streak in
the series with a 30-7 rout. Players
carried quarterback Kyle Boller off
the field, fans tore down the goal posts
and students publicly paraded the
Stanford Axe around campus all
week. Even now, the photos of that
game line Cal’s football offices.
“It was a great environment,”
Tedford said. “I think that will be a
memory of the Big Game and the
Memorial Stadium environment that
was really special.”
This week might take a special end-
ing for anybody to remember.
Stanford, which has yet to score an
offensive touchdown in two road loss-
es, is hardly the force it was a year ago
behind Andrew Luck and three others
drafted in the top 42 picks. Cal looked
awful at times in losses to Nevada and
Utah, but then nearly pulled off an
upset at Ohio State and has started to
find its rhythm in back-to-back wins
against UCLA and Washington.
Stanford, Cal meet 30 years after The Play
“There’s a significant portion of those of us here at
Stanford that just don’t believe that play should have
continued.That’s never going to change, and I think
that only adds to the lore of that play.”
—David Shaw, Stanford head coach
tract with San Francisco.
“This is definitely it for me,” Zito
said. “Coming here, especially doing
it in a Giants uniform. A lot of people
were saying stuff about A’s days. And
for me, the most important thing is
doing everything for San Francisco
right now.”
Zito was left off the postseason
roster when the Giants won the 2010
World Series because he had pitched
so poorly.
Zito’s 15-8 record this year was his
first winning season since joining the
Giants. He started Game 4 of the
division series against the Reds and
lasted only 2 2-3 innings.
“I couldn’t be happier for him,”
manager Bruce Bochy said. “He had
it all going. He put on quite a show.”
The defending champion Cardinals
might have thrown away a chance to
clinch a second straight World Series
trip. Pitcher Lance Lynn’s toss on a
possible forceout deflected off the
second-base bag, paving the way for
the Giants’ four-run fourth.
Lynn was trying to turn the front
end of a double play.
“I turned to throw it and I just
threw it in the ground,” he said. “Just
a bad play. You make a good throw
there and we are out of the inning. It
was one of those times where I just
short-armed it a little bit.”
Pablo Sandoval homered for the
second straight night and Zito made
an extremely rare offensive contribu-
tion with a perfectly executed bunt
for an RBI single.
The Giants also made several nice
plays behind Zito, including a jug-
gling catch in right by Hunter Pence
and a spectacular sliding stop by sec-
ond baseman Marco Scutaro to rob
pinch-hitter Shane Robinson on con-
secutive at-bats.
Once again this postseason, the
Giants benefited from a big error.
Needing three straight wins at
Cincinnati to avoid elimination in the
division series, San Francisco began
its comeback on a bobble by third
baseman Scott Rolen in the 10th
inning that gave the Giants the go-
ahead run in Game 3.
The Giants improved to 4-2 on the
road this postseason and have won
Zito’s last 13 starts, with the last set-
back on Aug. 2. They’re averaging
more than six runs a game during the
streak, although the left-hander did-
n’t need much help in this one.
Lynn, an 18-game winner his first
year in the rotation, failed to make it
out of the fourth for the second time
in the series.
“I didn’t give up a hit until the
fourth, I had good stuff, it was just
another bad inning,” Lynn said. “This
time of year, they are going to blow
up on you, if you give them that extra
out. And I gave them that extra out.”
The Cardinals are seeking consec-
utive pennants for the first time since
1967-68, and trying to advance for
the second year in a row as a wild-
card entry. One more win would set
up a rematch of the 2006 World
Series against the Tigers, which the
Cardinals took in five games.
Before the game, Jon Jay and
David Freese spent time on the podi-
um discussing why the Cardinals
have been so successful, but manager
Mike Matheny didn’t think his play-
ers relaxed.
“There’s distractions from you
guys every day,” Matheny told
reporters after the game. “That’s part
of the gig. Just today we had a guy
come out and pitch us tough, and we
didn’t get the execution when we
needed it. That’s what it all comes
down to.”
Lynn struck out five of his first 10
batters, sailing through the first three
innings with no balls hit out of the
infield. His undoing was a wild throw
off the second-base bag attempting to
get a forceout on a comebacker that
paved the way for San Francisco’s
four-run fourth.
The Giants had runners on first and
second with one out when Lynn
gloved a tapper by Pence, wheeled
and threw while shortstop Pete
Kozma hustled to second. But Lynn
threw a low dart off the bag with the
ball bounding into shallow right field
and Marco Scutaro scoring without a
play from second.
Eighth-place hitter Brandon
Crawford singled up the middle with
the bases loaded on a full-count pitch
with two outs, as Lynn just missed
with a kick save for two more runs.
Zito, who has just 30 career hits in
310 at-bats in the regular season with
nine RBIs, laid down a perfect bunt
for a fourth run.
Lynn has allowed four runs in both
of his NLCS starts, although all four
were unearned in Game 5. Matheny
was noncommittal about the
Cardinals’ pitching plans if they
made it to the World Series.
One possible rotation replacement
is Jake Westbrook, coming off a
pulled oblique muscle, who pro-
nounced himself ready after throwing
a simulated game earlier in the week.
“Moving forward, he’s been a very,
very good pitcher for us this season,”

its rhythm late in the quarter and steadily
grabbed the game’s momentum. The Bearcats
took over at the Mills 45-yard line following a
Vikings’ punt and despite being whistled for
two false start penalties, drove into the end
zone with 10:41 left in the first half on a
Garcia-Rodela 6-yard run.
The Vikings had their biggest play of the
night on the ensuing kickoff when Joshua
Sved received the ball at his 14-yard line and
took it down to the San Mateo 4. The Bearcats
defense stiffened, however, and the Vikings
had to settle for a Victor Beglitsoff 20-yard
field goal to cut the San Mateo lead to 7-3
with 7:52 left in the first half.
The Bearcats were forced to punt on their
next drive, but got another the ball back right
away when Latu intercepted a pass deep in the
Mills end of the field and returned it to the
Vikings’ 15. Sanft hooked up with Jason
Gonzalez for a 15-yard score on the very next
play and just like that, San Mateo had some
breathing room, 14-3.
San Mateo picked off Mills again on its next
possession and cashed in again, going 46
yards on nine plays, with Garcia-Rodela
bulling his way into the end zone from a yard
out to give San Mateo 21-3 lead at halftime.
San Mateo upped its lead to 28-3 on its first
drive of the second half after Mills was forced
to punt to open the third quarter. It was clear-
ly the Bearcats’ night when Sanft took the
snap at his own 35 and lofted a long pass
down the right sideline. The Mills defensive
back had excellent position and appeared to
have an interception in his grasp. He bobbled
the ball, however, and Larry Campbell
snatched it out of the air and turned it into a
65-yard touchdown.
On Mills’ next possession, San Mateo’s
Sione Hafoka burst through the line and took
down both the quarterback and running back
at the same time, forcing a fumble and recov-
ering it at the Vikings’ 2. The Bearcats needed
three plays to find pay dirt, but they were not
to be denied, with Sanft sneaking the ball in
for the final score of the night with 4:39 to
play in the third quarter.
“It’s fun to watch (my team) be excited
(about winning),” Scheller said. “They expect
to win. But after Saturday morning (practice),
Continued from page 11
The score was 7-7 after Humble’s score and
it took Sequoia’s defense to properly respond
after the Cherokees punted and were picked
off on their next two offensive possessions.
Andres Ortiz pounced on a loose ball in the
end zone to give Sequoia with 2:59 left in the
first half.
After a Woodside stalled drive, Mike Taylor
drove the Cherokees 56 yards in under two
minutes and ran the ball in from three yards
out to give Sequoia a 19-7 lead at the half.
“I wasn’t that upset,” Poulos said of
Sequoia’s first half. “We were making some
mistakes and they were making some mis-
takes. So I pointed out to the kids, ‘Look, at
the score, it’s 19-7. We’re making mistake and
they’re making mistakes. Let’s stop making
mistakes and let’s see what happens at that
point.’ And we cleaned it up. We still made
some small ones in the second half. But for
the most part, we played better and just kept
pulling away from that.”
Sequoia’s defense had a lot to do with that.
The Cherokees gave the ball back to
Woodside on special teams following a three-
and-out to begin the second half. But Sequoia
gave Woodside nothing on the drive.
The back-breaker came with 8:54 left in the
third quarter after a Woodside punt. It was
then that Taylor drove the Cherokees 96
yards, hooking up with Jered Woo on a 43-
yard touchdown pass to make it 26-7.
Taylor found the end zone once more, three
plays into the fourth quarter for a 32-7 lead.
Taylor finished the night with 144 yards pass-
ing and 124 rushing. As a team, Sequoia
gained 464 yards.
“We just have to go back and see what we
did and grow and get better as a football
team,” Bowie said. “I think they’re definitely
getting better as a football family. And I think
at this point, that’s a key for our season.”

the 24 minutes in the second half and used
touchdowns by Kevin Donahoe (16 plays, 80-
yard drive) and Jack Del Santo (14 plays, 55
yards) to put on a stamp on the afternoon.
SHP (2-1 PAL Bay, 6-1 overall) struck first,
taking their initial offensive possession 80
yards on 12 plays with Derek Hunter expos-
ing a blown coverage down the heart of the
field. The tight end went 40 yards but a
botched snap gave the Gators six points
instead of seven.
Aragon (1-2, 5-2) responded by seeing
SHP’s 80-yard drive and doing the same. The
Dons only used eight plays do to so, running
the ball right at the vaunted Gator defense. A
couple of big runs by Marcel Jackson and
Jordan Crisologo set up the 1-yard bulldoze
into the end zone by Patrick Pauni to tie the
game at 6.
But the Gators defense atoned for that drive
by blocking a field goal a couple of minutes
into the second quarter. SHP turned that mis-
cue into a 70-yard touchdown drive highlight-
ed by a huge completion on 3rd-and-a-mile to
the Aragon 1-yard line. Ryan Gaertner did the
honors from there. The score went 12-6 into
recess and the stat sheet lined up pretty even-
ly for both teams with SHP leading the
yardage category, 204-196. Aragon’s J.D.
Elzie led all rushers at that point with 102
“I was impressed with how we played
against the run in the first half,” Sell said.
“Unfortunately, it was at the expense of get-
ting beat and missing assignments on some
pass plays. And that’s what killed us in the
end.” SHP passed for 161 of their total yards
in the first half.
“Those running backs are quick,” Lavorato
said. “They’re good. They run hard. Our guys,
the first half, anytime you play a different
team it’s a new experience. It takes time to get
used to that speed they got. I think we got it.
They did their job for the most part on
defense. We have some good team speed.
We’re pretty feisty on defense.”
Aragon’s first touchdown came quick in the
second half after SHP’s marathon drive. They
used up two minutes to go 61 yards with Elzie
finding the end zone from six yards out.
But the defense had no answer for SHP’s
ground-and-pound in the second half.

PORTLAND, Ore. — David Lee scored 24
points to help the Golden State Warriors beat
the Portland Trail Blazers 101-97 in a presea-

ankle late in the second quarter.
Sasha Pavlovic hit a 3-pointer with one
minute left to pull the Blazers within 96-95.
Klay Thompson made one of two free throws
for the Warriors before Pavlovic missed anoth-
er 3 with 40 seconds to go.

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. — American,
foreign-born, male, female — mem-
bers of the U.S. women’s soccer
team really don’t have a preference
when it comes to their new coach.
All that matters is they get the
right coach.
“Someone who’s good enough,
that’s all I care about,” Abby
Wambach said Friday. “Be the per-
son who brings the World Cup
The U.S. women face Germany
on Saturday in the latest stop on
their post-Olympic victory tour. But
this isn’t your standard, no-pressure
exhibition. The Americans and
Germans are the two top-ranked
teams in the world. And after failing
to qualify for the London Games,
the Germans will be itching to sal-
vage their year by knocking off the
Olympic champions.
The game also will be the
Americans’ first in five years with-
out Pia Sundhage as their coach.
Sundhage announced in September
that she was leaving, having led the
Americans to back-to-back Olympic
gold medals as well as their first
World Cup final in 12 years. She fin-
ished with a 91-6-10 record, includ-
ing a 23-1-1 record this year alone.
Sundhage has since taken over as
the women’s national team coach in
her native Sweden.
“It’s definitely a different atmos-
phere,” said Carli Lloyd, who scored
both goals in the Olympic final, a 2-
1 victory over Japan. “There’s talk
of a league but we don’t really know
too much about it. We’re wondering
who our new coach is going to be.
“There’s a lot of unknowns right
now,” Lloyd said. “We’ll get it all
sorted out.”
Jill Ellis, the development director
for the U.S. women’s national
teams, is serving as interim coach
until a replacement for Sundhage is
found. U.S. Soccer Federation
President Sunil Gulati said earlier
this month that he hoped to select
the new coach by late October or
November, though it’s possible the
new coach might not start until
January — especially if the coach is
involved in an NCAA tournament.
Getting the right coach is
U.S. women’s only concern

CSM defensive lineman Lyman Faoliu.

we were a front-seven that everyone

“He was able to put it all together. He
honed in. I think it was a big moment
for Blake and a big moment for our
offense to be able to hone in and start
firing on all cylinders. It’s good when
you have that. Our offense kept our
defense off the field. I think you could
see Foothill wear down. When we can
do that, it’s a recipe for success.”
The Bulldogs will have to bring their
‘A’ game to cook something up against
the Rams. Defensively, CCSF might be
surrendering 26 points per game, but
it’s the offense that has given the state
problems this year. The Rams are aver-
aging 48 points and 453 yards a game.
Their offense is good for 25 first downs
a game and they complete 46 percent of
their third downs.
“The biggest challenge for us is that
we haven’t seen slots (receivers) that
are this fast and this talented,” Viñal
said. “This is going to be a challenge
for us. We’re going to have to show that
our defensive backs can play well.
They’re going to be fun to play against.
I trust my front line. I know they can
stop the run like they did last week and
put pressure on the quarterback.”
“Pressure on any quarterback will
always help,” Faoliu said. “But after
watching a little bit of film, (quarter-
back) Andrew Spivey gets a little flus-
tered after begin hit. That’s our key —
to hit the quarterback as many times as
we can, get sacks and disrupt his
rhythm. [And] just have that sense of
urgency — that killer instinct. We
proved in that Foothill game that we
have that sense of urgency now, we
have that instinct. And I feel that it’s just
going to keep getting better and better.”
“They’re a big-play team,” Tulloch
said. “Any time you make a team earn
it, don’t give them easy ones, don’t give
them cheap ones, it puts pressure on the
offense. When they have to sustain an
eight-play, 10-play, 12-play drive, it
makes it tougher on them versus one or
two over the top. San Francisco, as
explosive as they are, they have a ton of
speed and they have guys that can take
it the distance and they’ve hurt teams
over the top, that’s something we have
to continue to do. It’s critical.
“They’ve done a good job of finish-
ing. We’ve both kind of been in that
same situation, where we have to come
back to win. Both us and San Francisco
have had to find ways to win in tight
games. It’s going to be fun.”

High school kicker boots 67-yard field goal
SPOKANE, Wash. — A Washington state senior hit a 67-yard
field goal to tie the mark for the second-longest field goal in a
high school game.
Central Valley High’s Austin Rehkow drilled the kick, with
distance to spare, to tie a game with Shadle Park High at 55 as
regulation expired Thursday night. Central Valley, in the
Spokane suburbs, went on to beat Shadle Park 62-55 in over-
Rehkow’s field goal set a Washington state record. The previ-
ous mark was 62 yards set in 1929.
According to The National Federation of High Schools
Record Book, Rehkow’s kick tied the mark for the second-
longest high school field goal. The record is 68 yards, set by
Dirk Borgognone of Reno, Nev., in 1985.
The NFL record is 63 yards.
Central Valley coach Rick Giampietri said Friday that he
could tell the kick had a chance the instant the 6-foot-2, 200-
pound Rehkow booted it.
“It wasn’t spinning real fast. He hit it right in the belly,”
Giampietri said. “It went between the uprights.”
Giampietri said the choice with time running out was to try
the field goal from his own 43, or to try a Hail Mary pass.
“He’s kicked 60-yarders before in practice,” the coach said.
Rehkow had made just 50 percent of his field-goal attempts (7
of 14) going into the game, including kicks of 52 and 56 yards.
“I felt confident in my leg strength,” Rehkow told The
Spokesman-Review newspaper. “I went out there and you get
that extra adrenaline going. I let it rip. Luckily it stayed through
the uprights and once I saw the arms go up (from referees) it
was just an overwhelming feeling of joy.”
Sports brief
By Sangwon Yun
ecalling her first impression of
Steven Callas, Aragon English
teacher Jennifer Wei notes, “I
remember thinking of him
as the kid with the great
hair … It sometimes
reminds me of a chrysan-
themum. Sometimes he
looks like a chrysanthe-
mum in a friendly way.
And I think there’s some-
thing about that curliness
that people find appealing
and approachable.”
Indeed, as a person who has known Steven,
currently a senior at Aragon High School, in
the capacity of a teammate, classmate and
friend, I find the comparison to be particular-
ly apt. For in my mind, he is strongly charac-
terized by a refreshing, unaffected openness.
As Wei adds, “His personality is one that is
just completely devoid of judgment, and his
inclination would be to laugh and not be con-
In the classroom, he is both insightful and
eclectic in his academic pursuits. In the pool,
he is a decorated swimmer, dependable and
consistent. In the brief space of two seasons,
he has proven to be a critical, starting athlete
on the varsity water polo team. And all
throughout, compared to the overwhelming
majority of students, his presence on a day-
to-day basis is more a constant than a vari-
Thus, when he told me in mid-May that he
planned to pursue a career in the military, I
was thoroughly puzzled. I did not understand
how the armed forces would enable him to
best apply and extend his character and gifts.
Yet as Wei points out, “I think he’s thought
this through. And I genuinely think that any-
thing Steven does, he approaches with
thoughtfulness. … I think his great integrity
and knowledge of self [distinguish him as a
student]. … He has a very firm sense of self,
and again, he’s not afraid to be thoughtful
about what he believes too. I’ve seen him
shift his values, but not his belief, because he
makes those decisions about whether this is
in line with his overall sense of integrity.”
In our extended interview, his mannerism
alone indicated as much. Throughout our
half-hour conversation, he sat forward in his
seat and met each question with a ready
response that clearly reflected significant pre-

Best bets
By Frazier Moore
BEVERLY HILLS — “We got lucky. We
clicked,” said Adam Pally, one of the half-
dozen stars of “Happy Endings,” ABC’s com-
edy about six friends being funny in Chicago.
“We’re all playful and don’t take anything too
seriously. The six of us are troublemakers!”
“It’s very much a team,” Elisha Cuthbert
chimed in, “and I think that comes across on
camera. We just really care about the well-
being of our show and each other.”
Isn’t there even one member of the cast
Cuthbert doesn’t like?
“I don’t like any of them,” she answered,
“It’s a combination of like minds,” said
Damon Wayans Jr. “We spend so much time
with each other, it’s like we became a family.”
Wayans plays Brad, the metrosexual exec
who, as this third “Happy” season begins
(Tuesday at 9 p.m. EDT), has been laid off
from his job. Or so thinks Jane (Eliza Coupe),
Brad’s whippet-slim, high-strung and loving-
ly dominating wife, who likes the idea of her
man at home waiting for her after her own
“It’s very important to us to not be a boring
married couple on TV,” Coupe said. “So we
want our characters to give and take like a
real relationship would be, and be best
friends, like a real relationship should be.
And it’s really important to us to make sure
they’re weird and quirky!”
Penny (Casey Wilson) is resuming her eter-
nal search for Mr. Right, but something about
her is new in the season opener: She is in a
body cast (don’t ask). Meanwhile, Max, the
sarcastic and openly gay slacker played by
Pally, falls in lust with Penny’s hunky physi-
cal therapist.
Rounding out this sitcom sextet are Dave
(Zachary Knighton), who, on the series’ very
first episode, was ditched at the altar by his
panic-stricken fiancee, Alex (played by
Cuthbert). But after last season, during which
the couple existed in a laughably awkward
limbo within their circle of friends, they are
resuming their romance this season.
“We’re just gonna be friends with benefits,”
says Alex, “like in ‘No Strings Attached.”’
“Casually seeing each other,” Dave sums
How casual, of course, remains to be seen.
“I’m excited about getting to be an actual,
legit couple with Dave, over there,” said
Cuthbert, gesturing toward Knighton during
‘Happy Endings’ starts again

meditation. Recalling the initial push factor
toward the military, he said, “I was driving
back from church one time, and there was
this bumper sticker … It was like that red,
white and blue MLB sign. It looked like one
of those, except instead of a baseball player,
there was a military man holding up an M16
or some gun. And it said, ‘Major league
sacrifice. I hope you enjoy your freedom
because someone else is paying for it.’ And
that just really prompted me to … [be]
someone who protected people.”
The desire to protect, help and serve
seems to largely derive from his more fun-
damental quality of self-
“[Bullying] never real-
ly bothered me. But what
bothered me was when I
saw someone else getting
bullied. That’s when I got
angry. Sixth grade, I’m
only like 11 [and] barely,
slowly going through
puberty. And this kid is
just like completely making fun of one of
my best friends from kindergarten, and I
just get uber pissed. I’m just going off on
this guy … And then this guy started mak-
ing fun of me, and I just didn’t care at all,”
Steven said.
Fittingly, the close ties between
Steven’s personal creeds of service and
brotherhood become all the more evident
in the context of athletics.
“If I could ever become an officer, I
would really like to try to be like Major
[Richard] Winters in the ‘Band of Brothers’
series … He was with them in the trenches
in the beginning. He went through it with
them through D-Day. And then when he
couldn’t because he was their CO, he was
freaking out. I can see myself like that too
…. I was part of this all-star [baseball]
team, and I injured my elbow as pitcher. So
I only pitched three innings. There was this
one part where the person after me was
struggling a little bit. He was doing fine, but
I wanted to get out there and play a little bit
just to help him out. It’s painful to watch
your friends ... go through something, and
you can’t help them out,” he said.
Though through a modicum of perspec-
tive I am now able to appreciate his deci-
sion to follow the armed forces, I am still
struck by Steven’s keen awareness of his
core values from which he determined a
vision of his future. In many ways, as Wei
indicated, this knowledge is inherently rare
among adolescents. Yet all the more so is a
clear or even tentative knowledge of what
we as high school students would ultimately
like to pursue in the form of a career.
High school in some capacity is intended
to open doors and perspectives, perhaps not
to Steven’s extent, but to a degree neverthe-
less. Moving forward, I personally do so
with the hopes that “we all find our way.”
Godspeed, Mr. Callas.

this recent conversation with the cast. “I’m
looking forward to that.”
“Lotta making out!” crowed Knighton. “Get
those Altoids ready!”
“When the show started,” Pally recalled,
“Elisha and Zack were our emotional core,
because the show was about their relationship
and how it affected the rest of us. But as the
show evolves, the writers have opened up
their two characters and let them be as funny
as everybody else. And Elisha and Zack are
amazing comedic talents.”
Since premiering in Winter 2011, “Happy
Endings” has found loyal fans yet remains
somewhat of a secret to many other viewers.
“In a weird way,” said Knighton gamely, “a
lack of billboards or commercials or any pro-
motion of any kind actually helped us.
Sometimes it isn’t a good thing to shove
things down an audience’s throat. It’s good for
them to just discover it.”
A slow build?
“I want this to be a marathon,” chorused
Cuthbert. “I don’t want this to be, y’know, a
short race.”
“Or a sprint,” Knighton teased.
“I think what Elisha’s trying to say is, she
doesn’t want this to be a short race,” added
“Or a short sprint,” Knighton fires back.
The distinctive formula of “Happy
Endings” is a blend of physical comedy, sight
gags and comic cutaways with Mach-speed
wordplay. (”Why are you using a travel
agent?” Max asks Penny, who’s planning a
trip. “The only travel agent you need is a time-
travel agent to take you back to a time when
people still used travel agents.”)
“Nobody on our show talks the way people
talk in real life,” Wayans readily acknowl-
edged. “They don’t talk that fast, or make so
many pop-culture references. Sometimes
when I get the script, I go, ‘WHO is THIS?’
and I have to Google to find out.”
“‘Happy Endings’ lives in a world where
everything is fast-paced. Everybody’s up all
the time,” Pally said. “The hardest part of the
job is keeping OUR energy up!”
“We have incredible writers,” said Cuthbert,
“so we don’t improv too much. But we some-
times put our spin on things, and sometimes it
sticks: The director will say, ‘Hey, that riff:
Let’s keep it.”’
But the show seems to be shaping the actors
as much as the other way around. One of last
season’s funniest episodes found the gang was
worried about Dave and his addiction to V-
neck shirts. Finally they staged an interven-
tion (or “inter-Vee-ntion”).
Now, here at this interview, Knighton —
aka Dave — was sporting a blazer over his
very own V-neck shirt.
And when the reporter laughed at this
instance of life imitating art, Pally compound-
ed the vision by pulling down the neckline of
his sweater to reveal ... a V-neck T-shirt under-
“Everyone’s so funny and weird in their
own right!” declared Wilson. “Even weirder
than their character.”

LEY. There’s a stylish, low-impact and
definitely addictive sport that you can
play with your friends, taking breaks
only for a sip of champagne and a nibble
of hors d’oeuvres. What is this recre-
ational wonder? Answer: Croquet. The
general principles of the sport may be
familiar to many from their youth: hit-
ting colorful wooden balls with a mallet
through hoops (also called “wickets”)
embedded in grass. The croquet offered
at gracious Meadowood resort in the
Napa Valley wine country town of St.
Helena is the more fashionable cousin to
this well-loved childhood game. Players
wear crisp regulation croquet whites
(mandatory attire on the course), white
collared shirts for men, white shirts for
women. White or light beige pants or
shorts and flat-soled shoes are required.
The Meadowood croquet lawns are
immaculately manicured grass, with a
finish resembling the surface of putting
greens. And the backdrop is a serene
wooded 250 acre valley dotted with the
resort’s gabled lodges and cottages.
LOVE OF THE GAME. Providing an
introduction to the game is
Meadowood’s Croquet Pro Mike
McDonnell, who hands newcomers their
mallets and has them playing within
minutes, enthusiastically sharing his
lifelong love of the game.
McDonnell’s father taught him to play
on the family’s home court in Los
Angeles when he was 5 years old, and
he’s been playing ever since. McDonnell
said, “Croquet was a big family sport. It
was what we did – we played croquet
together. It was always a scene at our
house while we lived in Southern
California. A steady stream of profes-
sional croquet players and actors,
including David Niven, Louie Jordan,
Gig Young, George Saunders and Diana
Hyland, would always be at the house to
play, whether we were celebrating a hol-
iday or just a regular weekend.”
McDonnell teaches California Golf
Croquet, a simplified, easy-to-learn ver-
sion of the sport with good strategy and
tactics. Most guests can master the
basics in a single lesson. Instruction
begins with McDonnell demonstrating
how to swing the mallet using a variety
of grips, explaining the rules, showing
players where to stand to swing more
accurately and sharing winning
McDonnell said, “Croquet is a game
infused with elements of billiards and
chess played outdoors in classic whites
while enjoying your favorite repast.
Croquet is a game of spirit, style and
McDonnell is very much involved
with his students, coaching them
through their first game. There are no
wallflowers, everyone is quickly out and
playing, hitting a blue, red, black or yel-
low 1-pound ball clockwise through a
series of six wickets. (A color-banded
stake in the center of the lawn keeps the
order of play clear.) Each player takes a
stroke in turn, each trying to hit a ball
through the same hoop. The winner of
the game is the player or team who wins
the most wickets.
McDonnell said, “At Meadowood I
have the pleasure to work with groups
from two to 200. The dress code is tour-
nament whites in the Wimbledon tradi-
tion. I teach technique and the rules of
game and then send the players out on
the lawns for a fun and friendly croquet
tournament. After just a few matches
I’m able to determine the top two teams
and preside over an exciting finals as all
the participants cheer from the gallery.
The beauty of the game is the ease of
play and the very social nature of the
game itself. Where else can you get
large groups mixing together while
enjoying such an elegant sport?”
Homer, Édouard Manet and Norman
Rockwell all have paintings depicting
croquet. The sport was a favorite subject
of Edward Gorey — a croquet reference
often appears in the first illustration of
his books. In the 1988 film Heathers,
Winona Ryder and her friends are
depicted as playing croquet. And, of
course, Lewis Carroll famously featured
a surrealistic version of the game in
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland; a
hedgehog was used as the ball, a flamin-
go the mallet and playing cards as the

Top security official
among eight dead in Beirut blast
BEIRUT — A powerful car bomb tore through the heart of
Beirut’s Christian sector Friday, killing a top security official
and seven others in a devastating attack that threatened to
bring the war in Syria directly to Lebanon’s doorstep. The
blast sheared the balconies off apartment buildings, upended
cars and sent dazed rescue workers carrying bloodied children
into the streets.
Dozens of people were wounded in the blast, the worst the
Lebanese capital has seen in more than four years. The state-
run news agency said the target was Brig. Gen. Wissam al-
Hassan, head of the intelligence division of Lebanon’s domes-
tic security forces.
Al-Hassan, 47, headed an investigation over the summer that
led to the arrest of former Information Minister Michel
Samaha, one of Syria’s most loyal allies in Lebanon.
“Whenever there is a problem in Syria, they want to bring it
to us,” said Karin Sabaha Gemayel, a secretary at a law firm a
block from the bombing site, where the street was turned into
a swath of rubble, twisted metal and charred vehicles.
“But you always hope it will not happen to us. Not again,”
she said.
U.N. envoy arrives in Syria amid calls for truce
BEIRUT — Turkey and Germany on Friday threw their
weight behind calls for a Syrian cease-fire during a Muslim
holiday next week as the international envoy for the conflict
arrived in Damascus to push for the plan.
The effort has taken on urgency after activists in recent days
reported some of the heaviest air bombardments by President
Bashar Assad’s military against rebel-held areas.
Lakhdar Brahimi, the joint U.N.-Arab League envoy, was
expected to meet Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem on

Al-Qaida suicide raid kills 14 Yemeni soldiers
SANAA, Yemen — Suspected al-Qaida suicide bombers
disguised in military uniforms stormed into an army base in
southern Yemen on Friday, killing 14 soldiers and wounding
more than 20, Yemeni officials said.
The dawn assault on the coastal base in Abyan province
involved four suicide bombers in an army pick-up truck laden
with explosives and a gunbattle with soldiers who were caught

Gholson, the news came with a desire to do
lots of research. She chose to focus on fit-
ness, diet and healing touch through the
Healing Partners Program at Stanford
University. Through her research and work
through healing touch, Gholson was intro-
duced to Palo Alto-based nonprofit Breast
Cancer Connections.
“[Breast Cancer Connection] was a natu-
ral place where I could do research, get sup-
port and do classes,” said Gholson.
Gholson has volunteered time and also
taken courses at Breast Cancer Connections.
She recently enjoyed a course on nutrition,
which reinforced a lot of her personal
research. Gholson has also taken advantage
of a number of exercise classes like Thai
Chi and Healthy Steps.
“Our hope is to support everyone who
walks through this door in the way they
want to be supported,” said Executive
Director Karen Nelson, who added that’s
not just people dealing with cancer but also
family going forward. “This is their new
normal. They’re no longer survivors but
they’re thriving.”
Breast Cancer Connections was founded
in 1993 by a breast cancer patient and her
surgeon. The nonprofit offers support and
comprehensive information for men and
women with breast cancer. Nelson
explained the goal is to make people feel
comfortable, like walking into a friend’s
house. It offers a variety of free services
including support groups, personalized
research, screening and diagnostics, thera-
pies and counseling. There’s also an oppor-
tunity to get practical help like putting
together a personalized list of questions
before a patient’s next medical appointment.
Or, there’s a buddy program that partners
people who have had a similar breast cancer
diagnosis or treatment experience.
Gholson noted enjoying the sense of com-
munity at Breast Cancer Connections and an
“With breast cancer, everyone does
choose their own path,” said Gholson.
Despite differences, there’s camaraderie.
Gholson, who goes to the weekly Friday
Healthy Steps class, wasn’t feeling up to
going recently when she had a cold. But
then she thought of another client who has
been having a tough time. If she can make
it, Gholson thought she could too.
Offering the free services takes a commu-
nity. The organization is completely dona-
tion funded. There are also opportunities for
volunteers to work both in the programs or
to provide office work, said Nelson. But the
biggest challenge is spreading the word
about the organization. Nelson is always
looking for help with that.
Breast Cancer Connection is located at
390 Cambridge Ave., Palo Alto. For more
information about Breast Cancer
Connections visit http://bcconnections.org/

The city also anticipates one or two more
meetings on the environmental impact report
in November and the City Council will likely
need two meetings to decide whether to certi-
fy the document.
According to Kay’s calculation, the total
cost for one meeting is $4,074 which includes
the three men’s time and $100 for travel. The
original contract assumed three meetings.
The proposed development concerns a
10.53-acre strip of land within the existing
Caltrain station and running parallel to the
railroad corridor. Legacy’s proposal envisions
eight four-story buildings with 281 housing
units among a mix of 407,298 square feet of
residential, 23,797 square feet of office space
and 14,326 square feet of retail space. The
project would also include 667 parking spaces
and a new SamTrans Transit Center on 4.29
Eastside residents have spent hours at the
previous Planning Commission meetings
questioning the EIR’s conclusions about park-
ing and noise impacts.
The San Carlos City Council meets Monday,
Oct. 22 at City Hall, 600 Elm St., San Carlos.
Continued from page 1
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You’re not likely to invite
challenge, but you might surprise yourself as to how
well you perform when and if you are tested by abra-
sive people or adverse circumstances.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you’re anchored to one
spot too long, you could quickly become moody and
irritable. Arrange your schedule so that you’ll be free to
move around both mentally and physically.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you choose to
apply yourself, you have the ability to take a situation of
small promise and turn it into something that could be
extremely proftable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Having the freedom
to function in an independent manner will be of great
importance. Try not to be put in a position where you
can’t call any of your own shots.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Usually, you’re a
gregarious and outgoing type who enjoys people from
all walks of life. Yet, today, you are likely to step out of
character and be a withdrawn isolato.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Progress can easily
be made in a new endeavor that has captured your
attention and fancy. It’ll be easy for you to see things
realistically and act in a practical manner.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It may be of extreme
importance to know that you’re efforts are being
acknowledged and appreciated. You’ll relish all tributes
and compliments.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Even though you’ll project
an easygoing, philosophical ambiance, you’ll still take
your involvements with others very seriously. Pragma-
tism will take precedence over warmth.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your strong suit is to be of
assistance, as best you can, to anybody with whom you
share a joint involvement. Your pep and enthusiasm will
prime both your engine and your partner’s.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A strong desire for com-
panionship is likely to be extremely pronounced in you,
but if this is to be satisfed, you need to pick the right
person. A poor choice would contribute to your malaise.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Give vent to your industrious-
ness instead of indulging your playful inclinations. Be-
ing productive and engaging in something worthwhile
will be essential to your gratifcation.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- With this being the end
of the week, participate in some form of activity that
provides you with a little fun and relaxation. Taking
a break from your work routine will provide many
peripheral benefts.

requires that contractors include their li-

can check the status of your licensed

jobs that total less than $500 must state
in their advertisements that they are not
licensed by the Contractors State Li-
cense Board.
