Brown has competition on the
November ballot, and its not just
from a rival statewide tax initiative
seeking to raise income taxes for
school funding.
He is asking California voters to
increase the state sales tax and
income taxes on
the wealthy to
close the state
budget decit at
the same time
that hundreds of
cities, counties,
school districts
and local spe-
cial districts are
making their
own tax requests of voters.
In addition to Browns initiative,
Proposition 30, more than 230
measures for local taxes, bonds and
fees will appear on the local ballots,
said Michael Coleman, scal policy
adviser to the League of California
Cities. More than 100 of those ini-
tiatives are being put forward by
school districts and community col-
leges for construction bonds and to
buy equipment and make repairs.
The rest were placed on the ballot
by municipalities, special districts
and school districts to increase or
renew parcel, utility and use taxes.
The number of local revenue meas-
ures is comparable to the volume
seen during the 2008 and 2004 pres-
idential election years.
With Browns initiative leading
the ballot this year, voters in many
parts of the state will have to con-
sider whether they can afford to
support several local tax increases,
the statewide tax increases, all of
them or just say no.
Chelsea Shannon, a first-time
voter, said she was overwhelmed by
the Sacramento ballot, which
includes a local sales tax proposal

County looks
at banning
plastic bags
By Michelle Durand
The question paper or plastic will
become a thing of the past and
choosing a disposable bag at all will
come with a price under a proposed
ban coming before San Mateo
County supervisors at the beginning
of November.
If passed, the ordinance will pro-
hibit plastic bags in the unincorpo-
rated areas starting in April and
paves the way for two dozen
Peninsula cities to follow its lead.

Discovering and
treating disabilities
early key to success
By Bill Silverfarb
At a very young age, little Meera
Agarwal was not following the same
sequence of events in life, such as
walking and talking, that her older
sister had.
She had numerous ear infections
that affected her equilibrium. She
could stand up but could not keep
her balance.
Her mother Judy, who has slight
hearing loss, thought Meera might
have a similar condition, that per-
haps it was genetic.
Ear infections or uid in the mid-
dle ear can become a chronic prob-
lem that leads to hearing loss or
behavior and speech problems.
As it turned out, Meera needed to
have surgery to place tiny tubes in
her ear to allow for air to enter the
middle ear.
Two weeks after the surgery,
Meera was starting to walk more
normal but her parents placed her in
physical therapy to make sure she
learned to walk like everybody else.
Relieved that the source of the
problem was found and that Meera
would be able to walk OK, there
was still another problem she
was not quite talking correctly.
The need for early intervention
This is the rst of a three-part series
on living life with a developmental
disability as October is Disabilities
Awareness Month. Part I will focus
on early intervention. Part II will
focus on living in group homes and
the challenges in nding work and
Part III will highlight a woman with
Down syndrome who leads an in-
dependent life.

nationally broadcast address in which
he publicly revealed the presence of
Soviet-built missile bases under con-

quarantine of all offensive military equipment being shipped to
the Communist island nation. Kennedy also called upon Soviet
leader Nikita Khrushchev to eliminate this clandestine, reck-
less and provocative threat to world peace.

You betcha: Fargo awaits
TV version of hit movie
FARGO, N.D. Ask folks in Fargo
what they rst thought about the 1996
movie that made their city famous, and
some will tell you they were not fans.
Some residents initially didnt appre-
ciate the Coen brothers dark humor or
were offended by the extreme violence
and depiction of Scandinavian culture.
Not to mention those heavy accents on
you betcha and ya sure.
But the fame and cash it brought
Fargo eventually brought the city
around. Now, 16 years later, Fargo
awaits the debut of a new cable televi-
sion show by the same name, and many
residents here are less apprehensive
about how their hometown will be por-
trayed this time around. Just ask Kristin
Anything the Coen brothers are going
to be involved in is going to be brilliant,
said Rudrud, 57, who played a support-
ing role in the movie and has a hanker-
ing to promote everything about her
hometown. And they love Fargo. They
love this area. So it will be done in a
very fun and loving way.
The Oscar-winning film starred
Frances McDormand as Marge
Gunderson, a pregnant police chief who
investigates a series of murders, and
William H. Macy as a car salesman who
hires two criminals, played by Steve
Buscemi and Peter Stormare, to kidnap
his wife. In one of the nal scenes,
Stormare feeds Buscemis body into a
wood chipper.
Though the movie made Fargo a
household name for many across the
country, it wasnt a sure bet when it pre-
miered at the Fargo Theater in 1996. The
theater was quiet inside and some
moviegoers were offended, said Margie
Bailly, who was executive director of the
Fargo Theater at the time. Some resi-
dents even walked out.
Those of us who were laughing were
a little lonely, she said.
But locals later warmed up as the lm
was nominated for seven Academy
Awards, and Fargo started to see the
benets from all the publicity. The the-
ater hosted a free Oscar party with a
polka band and Jell-O treats that
Entertainment Weekly billed as one of
the top soirees of the evening.
That event was publicized in several
countries, and Fargo cashed in.
Donations flowed for the theaters
restoration, which dovetailed with plans
to revitalize the citys downtown.
Sixteen years later, travelers looking
to see the real Fargo still swing through,
with many ocking to take a picture next
to the iconic wood chipper, autographed
on the chute by the Coen brothers and
displayed at the citys main tourism cen-
ter. Tourism staff hand out ear-ap hats
to tourists and take pictures of them
stufng the leg of a mannequin into the
Yard Shark.
A good majority of people come in
here just looking for the wood chipper,
said Jayne Rieth, who works at the
tourism center. She didnt like the movie
on the big screen, but watched it at home
recently so she could be better informed
at work. And the tourism center and
shops around town sell plenty of wood
chipper T-shirts, shot glasses, koozies,
mugs and of course ice scrapers.
City boosters hope the TV show,
which will be produced by Minnesota-
born lmmakers, Joel and Ethan Coen,
will add to the notoriety. No timeline has
been announced by the FX Network, and
John Solberg, FXs senior vice president
of public relations, did not return mes-
sages left by The Associated Press.
I dont know how it can be a bad
thing for us, said Charley Johnson,
president and CEO of the citys conven-
tion and visitors bureau. People still
talk about the movie all the time.

Market Street Railway ran horse-cars
and became MUNIs biggest com-
petitor later when MUNI tried to acquire the
property and right of ways for a coordinated
system throughout the city. Market Street
Railway ran from Third and Market streets to
Valencia Street, then to the Mission Dolores
area. They used trains acquired from the San
Francisco and San Jose Railway in the 1860s.
It was renamed the Market Street Cable
Railway and Leland Stanford, Charles

Southern Pacic principals, acquired the rail-
way in 1883 and added two branches of trains
to the Golden Gate Park area. The Southern
Pacic line, as many called it, applied busi-
ness tactics that would cause wounds to peo-
ples egos and generate so much animosity
that it resulted in the citizens desire to acquire
a city-owned transportation system.
In the early 1860s, the San Francisco and
San Jose Railroad, terminated at 16th and
Valencia streets, began service up and down
the Peninsula. Due to shifting sand and dif-
cult upkeep that was incurred by the Market
Street Railroads use of horses, they modied
their franchise to use steam locomotives to
pull the passenger cars, but this proved dif-
cult and expensive and the Market Street
Railroad was sold to the San Francisco and
San Jose Railroad. Much to the displeasure of
the residents, the SF&SJ RR continued using
their steam engines on Market Street even
though they had to have a man walk ahead of
the engine waving a ag and ringing a bell to
warn horses and people of the approaching
train. The smoke produced by the steam
engines was a constant thorn in the side of the
public. Complaints were constantly being
voiced by the public until trains were no
longer allowed to pull trolleys in downtown
San Francisco.
In 1860s, Southern Pacific Railroad
acquired the SF&SJ RR. They now monopo-
lized the transportation line along the
Peninsula. This line hooked up with the rest of
the states railroads and led the way to devel-
op a line to Los Angeles.
In 1882, the Southern Pacic Railroad con-
trollers acquired the Market Street Railway
and renamed it the Market Street Cable
Railway (Confusing but similar names are

Honest, professional and reliable. Yelp
By Heather Murtagh
Many kids are fans of the San Francisco
49ers but few have the chance to see what
being part of the team means aside from play-
ing in the big game.
Three Bay Area teens Alison Davis, 15;
Raine Kerhin, 14; and Kevin Maltz, 16 are
getting a front row seat through 49ers Total
Access for Kids. The show, now in its third
season, highlights the team during home
games through the eyes of kids. The three teen
hosts have been with the show since it started.
While they arent exactly getting recognized
on the streets for their work, all three are
learning more about how the football organi-
zation really works.
I think when kids are really in love with
football, to see the behind the scenes is fun for
people. Its interesting to see the inside look,
said Kerhin.
The show started on a whim. Kerhins
father was asked to do a show about Youth and
Family Day. Kerhin, now a sophomore at
Carlmont High School, was asked to inter-
view people for it. The idea was born from
Both Davis, a freshman at St. Ignatius
College Prep, and Maltz, a junior at
Burlingame High School, sent in audition
videos and were added to the team.
The show, which debuted in 2010, features
a mix of game highlights, fun stories about
the players, clips from 49ers-sponsored events
and volunteer work in the community. While
its scripted, teens are given the ability to
improve and make suggestions.
If theyre trying to get kids involved with
the team, as Im sure 49er families are ... . We
can better entertain the future Niner nation,
said Maltz, adding the long games might not
keep a childs interest.
Davis was very nervous to interview a play-
er at rst. But everyone has been very nice
and gracious, she said. Kerhin agreed, adding
shes more comfortable now interviewing the
49ers players than others. Maltz said hes got-
ten more comfortable with interviews during
his time with the program.
Being a football fan growing up, and now
getting full access to the stadium, Maltz said
is his favorite part of the gig.
Each teen had a different favorite part.
Davis really enjoyed interviewing Vernon
Davis her favorite player. Kerhin enjoys
doing interviews and working outside the sta-
On weeks of home games, the teens nd out

light promotions or events other than games
like breast cancer awareness month or an
ongoing collection for local food banks, said
Kerhin. Teens take turns attending events not
happening at the stadium on game days and
often tape after practice or before the start of

Second passenger dies after
Saturday crash on Highway 1
A second person has died in a crash on
Saturday on state Highway 1 in unincorpo-

spokesman said.
The crash was reported on Highway 1
north of Pescadero Road at about 8:35 a.m.
Saturday but apparently occurred hours ear-
lier around midnight, CHP spokesman
Officer Art Montiel said.
A Toyota was traveling south on the high-
way when, for an unknown reason, it left the
roadway and went down an embankment
and came to rest on its roof, Montiel said.
One passenger was pronounced dead at
the scene while a second also later suc-
cumbed to his injuries, according to the
The driver of the Toyota was taken to
Stanford Hospital with major injuries,
Montiel said.
The collision prompted the closure of

The crash remains under investigation but
it does not appear that alcohol or drugs
played a factor, Montiel said.
Anyone who may have witnessed the col-
lision is asked to call CHP Officer Bingham
at (650) 369-6261.

SALINAS A moderate earthquake and
minor aftershocks jolted the central California
coast over the weekend but didnt cause any

Nearly 6,700 people reported feeling the

USGS geophysicist Don Blakeman said the
temblor struck in a seismically active area
near the San Andreas Fault, about 90 miles
southeast of San Jose. It was followed by at
least four aftershocks that were greater than
magnitude 2.5.

INGLEWOOD A man found
dead at the property where five
members of a Southern California
family were shot two fatally
was wearing body armor, clutching
a handgun and had a bullet hole in
his head, authorities said Sunday.
The loaded handgun was a .38 cal-
iber revolver registered to 55-year-
old Desmond John Moses, who
lived in a bungalow set ablaze before
the deadly shooting spree at his
neighbors house in Inglewood, said
Police Lt. James Madia.
The body, burned beyond recogni-
tion, was found inside the bungalow
late Saturday and an autopsy will
determine whether it is Moses.
The dead man had what appeared
to be a gunshot wound to the head
and carried additional ammunition
in his pockets, a police statement
said. He was wearing bullet-resist-
ant body armor, the statement said.
The shooting rampage before
dawn Saturday killed 33-year-old
Filimon Lamas and his 4-year-old
son. The father was shielding two of
his children when he was shot,
Inglewood Police Chief Mark
Fronterotta said. Lamas 28-year-old
wife, Gloria Jiminez, was shot in
both legs but managed to carry the
wounded 4-year-old out of the
Paramedics found her collapsed
on the street. The child, who suf-
fered a bullet wound to the head,
died at a hospital.
Their efforts were certainly hero-
ic, the chief said. He called the
shooting spree a horric crime.
Investigators believe Moses set his
own home ablaze before entering
the familys home around 4 a.m.
wearing a dark cap and a white
painters mask.
Authorities said he red 10 times.
In addition to the deaths of the father
and child and injury to the mother, a
7-year-old girl was wounded in the
chest and a 6-year-old boy suffered a
bullet wound in the pelvis. An 8-
year-old boy escaped injury.
The mother and daughter
remained hospitalized in stable con-
dition, Madia said. The 6-year-old
boy was released.
Authorities announced late
Saturday night that the charred body
was found during a search of the
badly burned bungalow, which took
hours because it was packed with
He was kind of a hoarder or pack
rat, Madia said.
He said police planned to contin-

information and the autopsy has not
yet been scheduled, Lt. Cheryl
MacWillie with the Los Angeles
County coroners office said
Madia said Moses lived in the bun-
galow for 17 years, while the family
lived in the front house for 8 years.
Fronterotta would not discuss the
nature of the dispute, but the prop-
erty owner told the Los Angeles
Times that Moses had been ghting
an eviction notice and recently lost
his case in court.

SAN DIEGO The new media
barons of Americas eighth-largest city
are upfront about wanting to use their
newspaper to promote their agenda of
downtown development and politically
conservative causes and they are
making their points in a brash, bare-
knuckle style.
Douglas Manchester and his partner
John Lynch gave their 143-year-old
newspaper a new slogan The
Worlds Greatest Country & Americas
Finest City ran a front-page editori-
al that declared their plan to reshape the
citys downtown waterfront their highest
priority, and forecast doom if President
Barack Obama wins re-election.
Manchester, who became wealthy
building hotels during the dawn of San
Diegos downtown renaissance and
insists on being called Papa Doug,
bought The San Diego Union-Tribune
last year and its most serious competitor,
the North County Times, this month. As
he and Lynch eye expansion to Los
Angeles and other major cities, they are
frank about seeking
to use their new plat-
forms to advance
their agenda and
they think they can
make a prot while
theyre at it.
Lynch calls the
editorial viewpoint
pro-family, pro-mili-
tary and pro-
America and says
anybody who isnt shouldnt be living
We think our country is on the edge
of real, real danger, and you have to
stand up, and that was a huge part of
why we bought this, said Lynch, vice
chairman and chief executive ofcer of
U-T San Diego, the newspapers new
The editorial page named Obama the
worst U.S. president and predicted a sec-
ond term will result in Arab terror
states attacking Israel, death panels
rationing health care, income tax rates
between 60 and 70 percent for many
Californians and an attempt to get tax-
payers to pay for late-term abortions. It
warned of an effort to erase In God We
Trust from U.S. currency.
Manchester, 70, is likened to a smaller
market version of Rupert Murdoch and
earlier moguls like William Randolph
Hearst and Robert McCormick who
used newspapers to wield inuence. The
unusually strong editorial tone stands
out in an era when many newspapers are
owned by corporations.
Hard to believe UT could go further
to the right and for the developers but
now it is owned by the developers! Ron
Belanger, a 70-year-old retired Navy
aviator, wrote on a Facebook page for
critics of the new owners called Bring
the L.A. Times back to San Diego.
Its a strong voice for a minority
viewpoint in the media, countered Josef
Horowitz, a 67-year-old retired college
administrator who renewed his subscrip-
tion in March, having canceled it under
previous owners because he felt the edi-
torials were mealy-mouthed and too lib-

plete control of news coverage and that

and publisher, meddle.

Suspects sought in Newport Beach kidnapping
NEWPORT BEACH Authorities are searching for a pair

Newport Beach Police Sgt. Todd Hughes said Sunday that
one suspect was arrested Oct. 6 in connection with the abduc-

The man, also bound with zip ties, had been beaten and severe-

WASHINGTON On the eve of
their nal presidential debate, Mitt
Romney and Barack Obama
through their allies squared off
Sunday over which candidate would
best protect the nations interests
and security abroad with just two
weeks left in a race that polls show
is increasingly tight.
Both candidates stayed largely
out of view, preparing vigorously
for their Monday face-off focused
on foreign policy.
Republicans accused Obama of
leaking word of possible negotia-
tions with Iran in pursuit of political
gain. Democrats shot back, arguing
that Romney and his party are the
ones playing politics with national
The haggling played out on
Sunday news shows at a critical
time for Romney and Obama,
whose marathon race has become
exceedingly close as it lurches
toward its November conclusion.
Early and absentee voting are
already under way in many of the
most competitive states, upping the
pressure on both candidates to lock
in supporters.
Two weeks out, the race appears
to be tied, with both candidates tak-
ing 47 percent among likely voters
in a Wall Street Journal/NBC News
poll released Sunday that reected a
boost of support for Romney fol-
lowing his lauded performance in
the rst debate in early October.
Romneys top supporters
launched sweeping condemnations
of Obamas handling of foreign pol-
icy, assailing him over a deadly
attack on the U.S. Consulate in
Benghazi, Libya, and arguing that
under the presidents negligent
watch, Iran has crept closer to
obtaining a nuclear weapon.
Republ i can
Sen. Rob
Portman of
Ohio, who
played Obama
in Romneys
debate prepara-
tions, said a new
report claiming
the U.S. and Iran had agreed to
direct negotiations seemed like
another example of a national
security leak from the White
Theyve done a lot of that,
Portman said, alluding to accusa-
tions over the summer that Obamas
administration was leaking informa-
tion to bolster his political prospects
ahead of the election. He was
echoed by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-
S.C., who called the timing of the
report pretty obvious.
The White House said Saturday
that while it is prepared for direct
talks with Iran, theres no current
agreement to
meet. On
S u n d a y ,
Obamas backers
credited him for
isolating Iran
within the global
community and
adopting effec-
tive sanctions
that have crip-
pled the Persian Gulf nation.
For two years, the president trav-
eled the world putting together a
withering international coalition. And
now the sanctions that they agreed on
are bringing the Iranian economy to
its knees, said David Axelrod, a sen-
ior Obama adviser. Theyre feeling
the heat. And thats what the sanc-
tions were meant to do.
Romney, taking a break from
debate prep Sunday in Delray
Beach, Fla., declined to answer a
reporters question about whether
he would be open to one-on-one
talks with Iran.
Still, Obamas allies were wedged
into a defensive posture as
Republicans undertook an every-
thing-but-the-kitchen-sink approach
to deating Obamas foreign policy
record. Graham said the Libya
attack reected one of the most
major breakdowns of national secu-
rity in a very long time. Sen. Marco
Rubio, R-Fla., in a clear nod to
Cuban-American voters in his bat-
tleground state, even suggested
Obamas loosening of travel restric-
tions to Cuba had provided a source
of cash for the Castro regime and
undermined political freedoms.
Lives in danger
Democrats were ready with
indictments of their own. Chicago
Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the
House GOPs release Friday of 166
pages of Libya-related documents
had put lives in danger.
People around the world will
now know that youre at risk if you
cooperate with the United States,
said Emanuel, Obamas former
chief of staff.
Obama, Romney allies square off
Barack Obama Mitt Romney
Foreign policy takes center stage in campaigns
By Alan Fram
WASHINGTON The party that runs the
Senate next year may be decided by how well
President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney do
in toss-up states like Nevada, Ohio, Virginia and
Wisconsin, where ballots feature parallel Senate
races about as tight as the presidential contest.
The mammoth campaign organizations built
by Obama and Romney, his Republican chal-
lenger, are focusing their voter registration and
turnout efforts in those four states and a handful
of other presidential battlegrounds.
Congressional candidates there are latching
onto the help that can come from the larger, bet-
ter-funded presidential campaigns.
In Nevada, Democratic Rep. Shelley Berkley
is hoping to buttress her challenge to
Republican Sen. Dean Heller with the Obama
campaigns efforts to register Hispanic voters.
In Virginia, the GOP has operated 29 ofces
across the state combining the operations of
Romney, Senate candidate George Allen and
House candidates.
Democrats control the Senate 53-47, includ-
ing two independents who vote with them. Of
the 33 seats up for grabs on Election Day, a
dozen are considered competitive, largely in the
West and Midwest. Republicans need a net
pickup of four seats to take control if Obama is
re-elected, three if Romney wins.
Both sides are measuring the impact of the
presidential race at a time when spending on
congressional races especially by outside
groups is mushrooming.
In the House, Democrats have been hoping
that a strong Election Day performance by
Obama could lift their candidates, especially in
states he is expected to win easily like New
York, Illinois and California. They may make
some gains but seem unlikely to pick up 25
seats they need to wrest House control from the
GOP. Only about 60 seats are considered com-
petitive in the 435-member House.
Theres no question we pick up seats in
direct correlation to the presidents coattails,
said Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y., who heads the
House Democratic campaign organization.
Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., deputy chairman
of the House GOPs political operation, con-
cedes that a strong Obama showing would like-
liest strengthen the Democratic vote in urban
areas, where Republicans have few seats any-
way. Republicans hope to limit Democratic
pickups by winning seats of their own in North
Carolina, Arkansas, Indiana and even
It helps us if Romney is doing better, espe-
cially in rural and suburban areas where many
GOP lawmakers come from, Walden said. And
Governor Romney is doing much better than
he was earlier in the campaign, said Walden.
In Ohio, Republican challenger Josh Mandel
is hoping for a late surge by Romney that might
also lift him past Democratic Sen. Sherrod
Brown. Polls show Brown, who has a liberal
pro-labor voting record, consistently leading
Mandel and doing better in the state than
Obama, whose advantage in the pivotal state
has narrowed.
On Friday, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce
reported spending $2.3 million for TV and radio
ads to help Mandel, making Brown one of the
business lobbys top targets.
If Romney could keep it close, Mandels
going to be in the Senate, said Scott Reed, a top
political strategist for the chamber.
In a debate last week, Mandel hammered his
rival for supporting Obamas health care over-
haul and for driving up the national debt with
efforts such as the federal auto rescue. Brown
made no apologies, ticking off benets he said
each law brought to average Ohioans.

foot building across from a major shopping
mall in Brookeld, a middle-to-upper class

not clear whether it remained a threat.

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay Uruguayans
used to call their country the Switzerland of
Latin America, but its faded grey capital
seems a bit more like Amsterdam now that its
congress has legalized abortion and is drawing
up plans to sell government-grown marijuana.
Both measures would be unthinkable in
many other countries. Cuba is the only other
nation in the region that makes rst-trimester
abortions accessible to all women, and no
country in the world produces and sells pot for
drug users to enjoy.
But President Jose Pepe Mujica, a ower-
farming former leftist guerrilla, vowed to sign
whatever bill congress could settle on that can
minimize the 30,000 illegal abortions his gov-
ernment says Uruguayan
women suffer annually.
And while lawmakers
have yet to debate pot
sales, Mujicas ruling
Broad Front coalition
staked its ground in August
by openly declaring that
the drug war has failed.
Smoking pot if not
growing and selling it
is already legal in Uruguay, and supplying the
weed is a $30 million business, the govern-
ment said.
This is democracy a la Uruguaya the
Uruguayan way a phrase that reects both
the pride and the unmet promises of a society
where nding common ground is a highly
shared value, in stark contrast to many other
countries where voters are divided by us-and-
them politics.
Such outsized respect for the democratic
process has enabled the country of 3.4 million
people wedged between Argentina and Brazil
to reach consensus on many issues that have
stymied bigger and richer nations, from
reforming health care to providing free uni-
versity educations, to setting ambitious
renewable energy goals.
By embracing compromises, Uruguay has
managed to hold onto its middle class through
repeated economic crises, and pass laws that
have consistently improved its citizens quali-
ty of life.
But Uruguayans are increasingly conclud-
ing that Mujica has been too conciliatory
too aloof and what they need now is more
hands-on management.

Al-Qaida in Afghanistan is

KABUL, Afghanistan A diminished but
resilient al-Qaida, whose 9/11 attacks drew
America into its longest war, is attempting a
comeback in Afghanistans mountainous east
even as U.S. and allied forces wind down their
combat mission. That concerns U.S. command-
ers, who have intensied strikes against al-Qaida
cells in recent months. It also undercuts an
Obama administration narrative portraying al-
Qaida as battered to the point of being a nonissue.
When he visited Afghanistan in May to
mark the one-year anniversary of the U.S. raid
that killed Osama bin Laden, President Barack
Obama said his administration had turned the
tide of war. The goal that I set to defeat al-

Election options
This is the way I see our choices for
president this election:
1. Gov. Gary Johnson, who would
have us live free with free choices in all
aspects of our lives, as long as we dont
tread on him or others.
2. Mitt Romney, who will spend less
and tax less, but keep most of the social
engineering by way of the federal tax
code and rules by regulations from
unelected bureaucrats.
3. Barack Obama, who will spend
more and tax more. He will redistribute
your money. Your only choice in life
will be to get and abortion or not. He
will rule over you like a dictator.
In my book, I see this as a very sim-
ple choice to make. Number one would
be my rst choice, hands down, no
question about it.

The real racism
I was listening to KCBS radio recent-
ly and heard a report that low-income,
less-educated white people have a high-
er mortality rate than any other minority
group of the same standing. This points
out a long hidden truth. The reason for
this is that there are absolutely no gov-
ernment programs of any kind to aid
this population specically like there is
with other racial groups. Also, there is
little understanding in society of how
white people can earn low incomes. So
if white society is as racist as everybody
believes, they certainly do not exhibit
the same type of solidarity that other
ethnic groups do with each other.

The Sacramento Bee
alRecycle, the states quarter-
century-old beverage container
recycling program, is in big
While the number of bottles and cans
diverted from landlls in California is
up dramatically, rampant fraud and mis-
management is depleting the states
recycling fund.
In recent years the state has paid out
$80 million to $100 million more to
consumers and others who turn in used
bottles and cans than it has taken in
from beverage distributors. If some-
thing is not done soon to restructure the
program, the fund could run out of
money within two years.
Fraud explains part of the problem.
Attracted by the nickel and dime per
container paid by the state, cheaters are
collecting truckloads of cans and bot-
tles out of state and redeeming them in
In a three-month period this past
summer, agents from the state
Department of Food and Agriculture
stationed at border checkpoints counted
3,500 vehicles entering California that
were carrying used beverage containers,
the Los Angeles Times reported recent-
ly. More than 500 were rental trucks
lled to the brim with bottles and cans.
Because its not illegal to bring con-
tainers into the state, only to redeem
them here, agents are not able to stop
the suspect vehicles.
While some of those used containers
may have gone to legitimate destina-
tions to California ports for export
or to manufacturers undoubtedly a
portion of them were turned in at recy-
cling centers for cash.
The California Justice Department
pegs the amount paid for out-of-state
bottles and cans at $40 million annual-
ly. An industry expert quoted by the
Times estimates the amount is closer to
$200 million.
Beyond the out-of-state container
issue, CalRecycle has failed to collect
millions of dollars that beverage distrib-
utors owe.
In 2010, an audit estimated the state
was owed $10 million from distribu-
tors. That has been reduced to $3 mil-
lion in recent months, but because the
agency delayed collection efforts
beyond a two-year statute of limita-
tions, some payments owed will never
be recovered.
The agency has made efforts in
recent months to correct problems and
stave off the looming funding crisis.
For example, to discourage illegal
redemption, the governor signed a bill
that will require border agents to record
names, car license numbers and the
destination of those bringing out-of-
state containers into California. Those
who fail to report will be subject to
Also, CalRecycle is issuing new reg-
ulations that will reduce how much
recycling centers can accept from indi-
vidual consumers per day.
Audits and enforcement have been
stepped up as well.
Finally, CalRecycle ofcials are
meeting with stakeholders including
local curbside recycling programs,
environmentalist groups, recycling cen-
ters and others to consider ways to
restructure the program to make it more
Beverage container recycling has
reached record levels in California,
exceeding the expectations of those
who originally conceived the program.
Last year 20.4 billion beverage con-
tainers were sold in California and 16.8
billion were recycled. Thats a recy-
cling rate of 82 percent, impressive by
any standard. No other state recycles as
many of its beverage containers as
California and only one, Michigan,
which offers 10-cent redemptions for
both soda and beer, has a higher rate.
But future success depends on the
states ability to keep its recycling fund
solvent. That will require more ener-
getic efforts to prevent fraud and much
better state management.
CalRecycle has to limit fraud
How I plan to
vote and why
usually dont share my ballot decisions in a column.
However, this year, several readers have asked me to make
my picks public.
Proposition 30 State Funding: YES, YES, YES. If it fails,
California public schools, community colleges and universities
will suffer unsustainable cuts. Revenue from Proposition 30 will
be used to balance the state budget. Without that revenue a
modest and temporary increase in the sales tax and an increase
in personal income taxes at the high end there will be spend-
ing cuts of $6 billion.
Proposition 31 State Budget: NO. This proposition
includes some good things, such as the two-year budget. But
some of it makes a complex
process worse. Reformers
failed at placing an overall
revision of the California
Constitution on the ballot
which would have made our
state government more ef-
cient and effective. Instead this
proposition is a muddle of
good and bad.
Proposition 32 Political
Contributions: NO. This is
another union busting initia-
tive put on by special interests
who are trying to achieve
Wisconsin skullduggery in
Proposition 33 Auto Insurance: NO. This is another
attempt by one insurance company, Mercury, to use the initia-
tive process for its own corporate gain.
Proposition 34 Capital Punishment: NO. This ballot meas-
ure is to reduce the costs of capital punishment by eliminating
it. The current system isnt working because of long delays in
the legal process. Prisoners remain on death row for years.
Often they die of natural causes. But if the problem is the cost
and process that should be addressed (and not by initiative). If
you believe capital punishment is wrong, that is a moral issue
and should be addressed accordingly.
Proposition 35 Human Trafcking: YES. This measure
(among others) doesnt belong in the Constitution and is an
example of misuse of initiatives. But I cant bring myself to
vote no.
Proposition 36 Three Strikes: YES. This is an important
x for a former initiative which has cost the state millions on
non-violent offenders.
Proposition 37 Food labeling: YES. A yes sign in Whole
Foods and a recent article in the New York Times Magazine
about having control over what we eat convinced me plus the
bogus commercials urging a no vote.
Proposition 38 Education Funding: YES. But you must
also vote yes on Proposition 30, which is more likely to win.
Education advocates are worried voters will choose between the
two and both will lose. Dont fall into the trap. Vote for both.
The one with the most votes will win. Unfortunately, propo-
nents of Proposition 38 are running ads against Proposition 30
(perhaps a reason to vote no on this one).
Proposition 39 Taxes for multi-state businesses: YES. This
is a confusing proposition and one which is a challenge for the
voter. On the plus side, it does simplify the state tax code.
Proposition 40 Reafrming redistricting: YES. This is a
sour grapes attempt to change the voters decision on redistrict-
Four propositions are on the ballot because of wealthy indi-
viduals: Proposition 33 George Joseph, billionaire insurance
executive; Proposition 35 Chris Kelly, former Facebook of-
cial; Proposition 38 Molly Munger, daughter of Warren
Buffets business partner; and Proposition 39 Tom Steyer,
founder of hedge fund Farallon Capital Management. The ini-
tiative is no longer direct democracy for ordinary individuals. It
has been hijacked by the rich and special interests.
County issues: Shelly Masur for supervisor. Ive known and
admired Warren Slocum for the 24 years he has run our coun-
tys elections department. Hes smart and knows his way around
the county. However, our supervisors ( and city councils) benet
from new blood. Masur, age 47, is also smart with valuable
experience in public health. Some say her school board experi-
ence is no match for Slocums many years as a county adminis-
trator. But being a school board member in Redwood City gives
one hands-on experience in dealing with families who most rep-
resent the population the county serves. Either one will make a
ne supervisor, but Masur has my vote.
Measure A Increase in county sales tax: A reluctant yes.
The increase will go into the general fund. Usually, we have
specic details on where our tax dollars will be spent. Here we
just have a possible laundry list which includes funding for seis-
mic improvement of a private hospital. Our sales taxes are
already high and it competes with critical issues on the ballot.
Measures B: District Elections: YES. Ive changed my mind
on this. Its time for a change in the way we elect our supervi-
Measure C: Appointment of controller: YES, YES, YES. This
is long overdue.

WASHINGTON President Barack
Obama isnt talking about it and neither
is Mitt Romney. But come January, 163
million workers can expect to feel the
pinch of a big tax increase regardless of
who wins the election.
A temporary reduction in Social
Security payroll taxes is due to expire at
the end of the year and hardly anyone in
Washington is pushing to extend it.
Neither Obama nor Romney has pro-
posed an extension, and it probably
wouldnt get through Congress anyway,
with lawmakers in both parties down on
the idea.
Even Republicans who have sworn off
tax increases have little appetite to pre-
vent one that will cost a typical worker
about $1,000 a year, and two-earner
family with six-gure incomes as much
as $4,500.
Why are so many politicians sour on
continuing the payroll tax break?
Republicans question whether reduc-
ing the tax two years ago has done much
to stimulate the sluggish economy.
Politicians from both parties say they are
concerned that it threatens the independ-
ent revenue stream that funds Social
They are backed by powerful advo-
cates for seniors, including AARP, who
adamantly oppose any extension.
The payroll tax holiday was intended
to be temporary and there is strong
bipartisan support to let that tax provi-
sion expire, said Sen. Orrin Hatch of
Utah, the top Republican on the Senate
Finance Committee. The continued
extension of a temporary payroll tax hol-
iday has serious long-term implications
for Social Security and, frankly, its not
even clear that it has helped to boost our
ailing economy.
The question of renewing the payroll tax
cut has been overshadowed by the expira-
tion of a much bigger package of tax cuts
rst enacted under President George W.
Bush. The Bush-era tax cuts also expire at
the end of the year, and Congress is
expected to try to address them after the
election, in a lame-duck session.
The payroll tax cut could become part
of the mix in negotiations that could go
in many directions. But lawmakers in
both political parties say they doubt it.
I think theres a growing consensus
that Congress and the president cant
continue to divert such a critical revenue
stream from Social Security, said Rep.
Kevin Brady of Texas, a senior
Republican on the tax-writing House
Ways and Means Committee. I think
more and more Americans understand
that that payroll tax cut, while political-
ly appealing, is endangering Social
Before he was named as Romneys
running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.,
disparaged the payroll tax cut, calling it
sugar-high economics that wouldnt
promote long-term growth.
Social Security is funded by a 12.4
percent tax on wages up to $110,100,
rising to $113,700 in 2013. Half is paid
by employers and the other half is paid
by workers. For 2011 and 2012,
Congress and Obama cut the share paid
by workers from 6.2 percent to 4.2 per-
A worker making $50,000 saved
$1,000 a year, or a little more than $19 a
week. A worker making $100,000 saved
$2,000 a year.
Big tax increase looms
By Terry Collins
SAN FRANCISCO In this tech-
savvy city teeming with commuters and
tourists, the cell phone has become a top
target of robbers who use stealth, force
and sometimes guns.
Nearly half of all robberies in San
Francisco this year are cell phone-relat-
ed, police say, and most occur on
bustling transit lines.
One thief recently snatched a smart-
phone while sitting right behind his
unsuspecting victim and darted out the
rear of a bus in mere seconds.
Another robber grabbed an iPhone
from an oblivious bus rider while she
was still talking.
And, in nearby Oakland, City Council
candidate Dan Kalb was robbed at gun-
point of his iPhone Wednesday after he
attended a neighborhood anti-crime
I thought he was going to shoot me,
recalled Kalb, who had dropped his
phone during the stickup. He kept say-
ing, Find the phone! Find the phone!
These brazen incidents are part of a
ubiquitous crime wave striking coast to
coast. New York City Police report that
more than 40 percent of all robberies
now involve cell phones. And cell phone
thefts in Los Angeles, which account for
more than a quarter of all the citys rob-
beries, are up 27 percent from this time
a year ago, police said.
This is your modern-day purse
snatching, said longtime San Francisco
Police Capt. Joe Garrity, who began
noticing the trend here about two years
ago. A lot of younger folks seem to put
their entire lives on these things that
dont come cheap.
Thefts of cell phones particularly
the expensive do-it-all smartphones con-
taining everything from photos and
music to private e-mails and bank
account statements are costing con-
sumers millions of dollars and sending
law enforcement agencies and wireless
carriers nationwide scrambling for solu-
In San Francisco, police have gone
undercover and launched a transit ad
campaign, warning folks to be smart
with your smartphone. Similar warn-
ings went out in Oakland, where there
have been nearly 1,300 cell phone rob-
beries this year.
Thefts of cell phones rise rapidly nationwide
NEW YORK High prices help sell watches, sports cars
and handbags by suggesting rare quality. Now, they may be
helping sell stocks, too.
The number of stocks priced at $100 or more is at a multi-
decade high. Companies worried that sticker shock would keep
small investors from buying used to split their shares in two or
more to lower the price. But now splits are scarce, and a triple-
digit stock has cachet.
It shows investors have condence in you, says Jon
Johnson, editor of, an investing newsletter. Its
another thing you can point to and say, Were doing ne in
uncertain times.
Jeffrey Hirsch, editor of the Stock Traders Almanac, calls it
a new badge of achievement.
Among stocks in the Standard & Poors 500 index, 42 trade
for $100 or more, according to Howard Silverblatt of S&P Dow
Jones Indices, which manages the index. That is the highest in
his records, which date back 36 years.
A surging stock market has helped lift the price of stocks, as
has ination over the years. But experts suggest a bigger reason
is that more companies are refusing to cut prices with splits that
swaps a single share for multiple shares. A two-for-one split,
for instance, cuts a $100 share into two $50 shares.
Other features of the rise of triple-digit stocks:
It reects an investor retreat. Companies used to split shares
because they worried small investors would get spooked by a
$100 price tag, Silverblatt says.
Credit lower trading fees, too. Investors once bought and
sold stock mostly in so-called round lots of 100 to avoid paying
higher broker commissions for so-called odd lots. A high stock
price made buying in blocks of 100 out of reach for some small
investors. That was one reason companies split their stocks.
Its no bull-market uke. When the market was higher, at its
October 2007 peak, $100-plus stocks numbered 33, fewer than
today. In the dot-com boom in 1999, 27 breached the triple-
digit mark.

season once more, pushing St. Louis to a
winner-take-all Game 7 in the NL champi-
onship series.
Turns out the defending champion
Cardinals arent the only team thats tough
to put away in October.
Vogelsong struck out a career-best nine
batters in another postseason gem, and the
Giants avoided elimination for a second
straight game by beating St. Louis 6-1 on
Sunday night.
Marco Scutaro delivered a two-run dou-
ble and Buster Posey drove in his rst run
of the series with a groundout in the rst

support Vogelsong.

OAKLAND The nal kick
was an easy one for Sebastian
After coming up short on what
would have been an NFL-record 64-
yard eld goal attempt on the last
play of regulation, Janikowski hit a
40-yarder 2:06 into overtime to give
the Oakland Raiders a 26-23 win
over the Jacksonville Jaguars on

set up after Cecil Shorts III fumbled
on the opening possession of over-

Carson Palmer threw one TD pass
and ran for another to force over-
time for the Raiders (2-4) before
they won it after Lammar Houston
forced a fumble that Joselio Hanson
recovered at the Jacksonville 21.
After one play to center the ball,
Janikowski came on to kick the win-
ning eld goal to end a rough day
for the Jaguars (1-5).
The Jaguars lost star running back
Maurice Jones-Drew to a left foot
injury on the opening drive and
quarterback Blaine Gabbert to an
injured left shoulder in the second
quarter and managed only two
downs after

Gabbert threw a 42-yard TD pass
to Shorts before leaving with the
injury, Rashad Jennings scored on a
5-yard run and Josh Scobee kicked
three eld goals for the Jaguars.
Oakland fell behind 20-6 early in
the second half and 23-13 early in
the fourth before rallying to tie the
game on Palmers 1-yard run with
3:34 remaining.
Palmer threw an 8-yard touch-
down pass to Denarius Moore to
start the comeback and Oaklands
next two scoring drives were aided
by Jacksonville penalties.
Andre Branch was called for
roughing the passer in the end zone
on a third-down play stopped short
of the yard marker to extend a drive
that ended with Janikowskis third
eld goal.
The Jaguars went three-and-out
again on the ensuing but were in
position to stop Oakland on fourth-
and-10 from the Jacksonville 25
with under 4 minutes to go. After
the Raiders used their nal timeout,
Palmer threw deep in the end zone
to Darrius Heyward-Bey. Aaron
Ross was called for a questionable
pass interference call on the play,
putting Oakland at the 1 to set up
Palmers score.
A week after taking undefeated
Atlanta to the nal seconds on the
road before losing 23-20, the
Raiders were at at the start against
a one-win Jaguars team missing its
running back and quarterback for
much of the day.
Jones-Drew was on the eld for
just two snaps, carrying the ball on
the rst two plays before leaving
with a left foot injury. By the time
Gabbert left midway through the
second quarter, Jacksonville was in
control of the game.
The Jaguars held Oakland to a
eld goal after Heyward-Bey beat
them for a 59-yard gain to the 9 on
a third-down pass that gave the
Raiders their only rst down in the
rst 26 minutes of the game.

from the sellout crowd of 43,070 at AT&T
Park, the right-hander didnt allow a hit until
Daniel Descalsos broken-bat single to center
with two outs in the fth. Vogelsong struck
out the side in the rst and had already fanned
ve through two innings.
This place is going to be loud, I can tell
you that, Vogelsong said of Monday night.
Scutaro had no chance for a collision with
Matt Holliday this time. In their rst game
back at AT&T Park since Holliday took out
the second baseman with a hard slide in Game
2, Holliday was scratched about an hour
before rst pitch because of tightness in his
lower back, and Allen Craig replaced him in
left eld.
It hardly mattered the way Vogelsong
The Cardinals managed their only run on

had gone 15 innings without scoring after left-
hander Barry Zito won 5-0 on Friday in Game
I just tried to do really the same thing he
did, come out and set the tone early for us,
Vogelsong said.
Vogelsong had his second stellar seven-
inning outing against the Cardinals in a week,
allowing four hits and one run. He walked one
in a 102-pitch performance and lowered his
postseason ERA all this year to 1.42.
I just believe that its my time, Vogelsong
After taking a 3-1 lead back home at Busch
Stadium, Mike Mathenys Cardinals will have
to nd some offense in a hurry if they want to
get back to the World Series.
Weve got to make some adjustments but
our teams done that all season, Matheny
said. One thing I know is these guys take
these to heart.
These Cards might just prefer close calls.
Just like last year.
They won the NLs second wild card on the
second-to-last day of the regular season, then
won at Atlanta to reach the division series.
The Cardinals rallied from a 6-0 decit with a
four-run ninth inning to stun the Washington
Nationals 9-7 in Game 5 of the division series.
The Giants got to St. Louis ace Chris
Carpenter again. The Cardinals winningest
postseason pitcher with 10 victories looked
out of sync for the second straight start and
he left with a nearly identical line as in his 7-
1 Game 2 loss here last Monday, down to the
hits, earned runs, unearned runs and innings.
Carpenter was done in by one big inning
this time, too. He allowed six hits and ve
runs, two earned, in four innings.
Vogelsong reached on shortstop Pete
Kozmas elding error in the second, scoring
Brandon Belt after he led off the inning with
a triple. Scutaro came up two batters later and
doubled home two more runs.
The 10 unearned runs allowed by the
Cardinals are the most in an NLCS, according
to STATS, LLC topping the nine given up
by the Braves in 2001 and Dodgers in 1985.
San Francisco never faced an elimination
game in 2010 on the way to winning the
World Series, but has had to go the distance in
each of its rst two postseason series this year.
They became the rst team in major league
history to come back from a 2-0 decit to win
a best-of-ve series by winning three straight
on the road as they did at Cincinnati.
They have Vogelsong for this years run.
He was on top of his game again, Giants
manager Bruce Bochy said. Hes probably
been as consistent as any starter this year.
The Giants put pressure on Carpenter right
Scutaro drew a one-out walk and Pablo
Sandoval doubled off the wall in center on a
ball that eluded Jon Jay. Posey followed with
a groundout to third to score Scutaro for a 1-
0 lead.
Scutaro is batting .458 (11 for 24) during
the NLCS.
I dont really know, man, Scutaro said
when asked to explain it. Just excited to
come to the eld every day. ... Being in this
opportunity, just being in the playoffs, is

fast, smooth new surface at Kansas
Speedway had the potential to wreak
havoc on the Chase for the Sprint
Cup championship.
The recent repave cluttered
Sundays race with a record 14 cau-
tions a season high in the Sprint
Cup Series and contributed to
issues that affected at least four title
contenders. But the standings looked
much the same when Matt Kenseth
took the checkered ag in a battered
Ford that he banged hard into the
wall midway through the race.
Kenseth still managed to drive it to
his second victory in three races,
while Brad Keselowski dodged acci-
dent after accident to hang onto his
seven-point lead over Jimmie
Johnson in the standings with four
races remaining in the Chase.
I was thinking, Man, this has to
be entertaining for everybody to
watch, Kenseth said. There was a
lot of wild stuff happening.
That was an understatement
Sunday, when the longest green-ag
run was 35 laps early in the race.
Some of the cautions were caused by
tire problems, others were for single-
car spins, including Chase drivers
Johnson, Tony Stewart and Greg
And, Danica Patrick wrecked her-
self when she intentionally wrecked
Landon Cassill.
You know, everybody has been
asking all season long where the cau-
tions have been, Keselowski said.
Well, they flew to Kansas and
theyve been hanging out here
because there was caution after cau-
Bifes spin ended his day with a
hard crash into the wall.
I lost it, man. It got away from me
off of four and we wrecked it, said
Bife, who dropped ve spots in the
standings to 11th. I had no indica-
tion, no little wiggle, no sideways. It
just got away from me and it killed
our day.
Johnson, who led 44 laps early,
was far luckier.
He had pitted from the lead and
was back in trafc when a caution
came out, and he spun by himself
shortly after the restart. He, too, hit
the wall on his spin, but crew chief
Chad Knaus called him to pit road to
get a look at the car instead of con-
ceding laps by going to the garage
for repairs.
Knaus then methodically dictated
team orders, as Johnson stopped on
pit road at least a half-dozen times
for repairs over two caution periods.
That looks good, man. They did a
much better job than I thought they
would, he told Johnson as he drove
away. Theres really nothing wrong
with that thing.
Even Keselowski was surprised to
see the heavily taped No. 48 back on
the track when the race went green.
I thought you said the 48 car
wrecked? he asked his crew. He
looks ne.
Team owner Rick Hendrick
praised the team efforts during a stop
in the media center during the race.
I have never in my 30 years of
racing seen anyone perform that kind
of surgery and not lose a lap,
Hendrick said.
In the end, Johnson salvaged a
ninth-place nish and was carefully
inspecting his Chevrolet after the
Im just now getting a chance to
look at the damage on the car and its
pretty severe, he said. Im
impressed that they xed it as they
did. All things considered, without
my mistake, I think we had a shot to
It was still good enough to keep
the Chase margin unchanged with
Keselowski, who nished a spot
ahead in eighth. He came into the
race with a seven-point lead and left
with a seven-point lead as the series
heads next weekend to Martinsville
Speedway in Virginia.
Im glad to have survived the car-
nage and brought back a decent car,
Keselowski said. Whew! Just a
tough day.
Martin Truex Jr. nished second,
Paul Menard was third in the rst
race back for crew chief Slugger
Labbe, who served a six-race sus-
pension for an infraction at
Kasey Kahne nished fourth and
was followed by defending champi-
on Stewart, who overcame both a
spin during the race and a pit road
penalty for leaving his stall with
equipment still attached to his car.
An eventful day, Stewart said.
Our guys led by (crew chief) Steve
Addington, they never gave up.
Thats how we won a championship
last year, by never giving up. Weve
got a little bit of work to do, but
were gaining on it.
Clint Bowyer, from nearby
Emporia and the winner last week at
Charlotte, nished sixth to maintain
fourth in the Chase standings. He
trimmed his decit by three points to
25 behind Keselowski.
Weve just got to keep digging,
Bowyer said. Youve got to keep
gaining on them. I was hoping to
gain a little bit more than that, but we
had a solid day.
Regan Smith, in his second race
lling in for Dale Earnhardt Jr., was
seventh. Earnhardt will test on
Monday and see his doctor on
Tuesday with every indication hell
be cleared to return to the No. 88

Scrambling for yards on the games open-
ing possession, Nunes fumbled and Deandre
Coleman recovered at the Cal 47. On the
ensuing drive, Thomas jarred the ball loose
from Maynard on third down and forced the
Bears to punt.
After Drew Terrells 37-yard return put
Stanford on the Cal 34 later, Nunes started to
nd his rhythm. He completed a 16-yard pass
to Zach Ertz, and Josh Hill was later called for
holding the tight end on third down to extend
the drive.
Taylor shook two defenders at the line of
scrimmage, cut outside and sliced back up the
middle for a 7-yard touchdown run to give
Stanford a 7-0 lead late in the rst quarter.
Taylors previous best was 177 yards rushing
in the Fiesta Bowl overtime loss to Oklahoma
State last season.
You dont want to be that class that gives
the Axe away, said Taylor, who will leave
Stanford 3-0 as a starter in the Big Game.
The seniors made it a point that we want to
keep the Axe.
Taylors touchdown marked the Cardinal
offenses rst on the road this season after
losses at Notre Dame and Washington. And
once they got going, they simply outmuscled
the Bears on both sides.
Starting out of a power formation, Ertz
broke free for a short catch and ran 68 yards
down the sideline. Fellow tight end Levine
Toilolo followed with a 9-yard touchdown
pass from backup Kevin Hogan normally
just a read-option quarterback to put the
Cardinal ahead 14-3 on the rst throw of his
Cal self-imploded on all of its best chances.
The Bears lost 2 yards on three plays all
runs after Keenan Allen returned a punt 29
yards and Brendan Bigelow took a short slant
for a 31-yard gain to Stanfords 2. They set-
tled for a 21-yard eld goal by Vincenzo
Bigelow also fumbled earlier in the second
quarter to end another Cal drive, and a pass
interference penalty on Steve Williams wiped
out an interception. And after a video review,
ofcials ruled that Barry Browning stripped
Allen before the wide receiver went down and
Stanfords Jordan Richards recovered.
Nunes found Ertz on the next play for a 20-
yard touchdown pass to give Stanford a 21-3
lead and quiet the crowd, other than the small
smattering of boos fans mixed in on occasion.
If not for two missed eld goals by Stanfords
Jordan Williamson, the score wouldve been
even more one-sided.
This goes on everybody, said Cal coach
Jeff Tedford. They won the line of scrim-
mage today.

Another mistake by Adams set up the sec-
ond score when he dropped a punt at the 16,
setting up Rashad Jennings 5-yard run that

KENT, Wash. Ashley Wagner put her
self-described Almost Girl tag behind her at
Skate America.
The 21-year-old won the womens title, and
18-year-old teammate Christina Gao made it a
1-2 U.S. nish Sunday.
Competing in her first Skate America,
Wagner, adding a well-executed long program
to the short program that she won Saturday,
nished with 188.37 points. That included
127.76 in her long program to music from
Samson and Delilah. She scored 60.61
points in the short program.
After the short program, I denitely felt it
was plausible to win the whole event, said
Wagner, fourth in the world championships in
March in the best nish by a U.S. skater since
2007. It was kind of a good end, because I
started worrying about it a little bit. But Im
happy I was able to keep my nerves under
control and accomplish what I wanted to
As for her Almost Girl past Wagner
barely missed making the 2010 U.S. Olympic
team and two previous world championship
teams she said that truly is behind her.
That was one phrase that I only said once,
but everyone latched onto it. Now, I think I
can let that go, Wagner said. Its not that Im
a different person now. Im the same person,
but I have the mental strength to perform the
way that I do in practice, which makes it a lot
more enjoyable.
Gao moved up to second place with a strong
free skate. She had 174.25 points 117.62 of
those Sunday.
Russias Adelina Sotnikova third with
168.96. She was in second place after the
short program, but fell on a triple ip during
the free skate to knock her down one place.
Earlier, Meryl Davis and Charlie White of
the U.S. won their third straight Skate
America dance title. The four-time defending
national champions won the silver medal at
this years world championship, and have won
10 straight Grand Prix events, including the
last four Grand Prix nals.
Wagner was smooth and clean on virtually
every element in the free skate. She opened
with a triple ip-double toeloop-double loop,
did a triple ip on her nal jump, and glided
through a change foot combo spin nish it.
I really fought through one of those jumps,
but Im really pleased with what I put out,
Wagner said. One of the things I learned
from (coach) John Nicks is you cant just give
away jumps. You have to ght for every single
thing. Its having the condence that even if
something is a little bit off, you can have the
speed to get out of it and land it.
Wagner certainly had a tough act to follow.
Gao dazzled the audience with a performance
to Libertango that was every bit as well exe-
cuted as Wagners. That came on the heels of
Saturdays strong short program for Gao.
I think I was a lot more condent coming
into this than ever before, only because of the
way Ive been training, said Gao, who is
combining her skating with her studies at
Harvard. Its kind of what Ive been doing in
practice every day. Thats what Ive been
telling myself just make it like practice
and I did.
The 16-year-old Sotnikova was within
striking distance of Wagner going into the free
skate, trailing the American by 1.78 points.
But the fall took the 2011 world junior cham-
pion and three-time Russian senior champion
out of the running.
Im very pleased that I did the triple-triple
combination that I really wanted to do today,
Sotnikova said. But Im completely unhappy
about missing that second triple ip.
In the dance, Davis and White, skating to
Notre Dame de Paris, totaled 176.28 points
over two days of competition, including
104.89 in Sundays free dance.
They were more than 16 points ahead of
Ekaterina Bobrova and Dmitri Soloviev of
Russia, who had 159.95 for second.
We had a couple little technical glitches here
and there, Davis said. Were denitely look-
ing to getting our technical scores much higher.
Overall, it was a good start to the season.
Canadas Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje
finished third at 157.32. Bobrova and
Soloviev were third heading into the free
dance, but outscored Weaver and Poje by 6.51
points to move up a spot.
Ashley Wagner wins Skate America
Gold medal winner Ashley Wagner (C) and silver medal winner Christina Gao (L), both of the

second half for a 2-2 tie with the
Los Angeles Galaxy on Sunday.

Marvin Chavezs corner kick, put
him one behind Roy Lassiters sea-
son MLS scoring mark with one

Diallo accom-
plished the feat
for Tampa Bay in 2000.
Robbie Keane scored his 12th
goal in 15 games, and Edson
Buddle, making his rst start since
May 26, nodded in his third of the
season to stake the Galaxy to a pair
of second-half leads.
But Marvin Chavez curled home
a beautiful free kick, and
Wondolowski nally broke through
after hitting the post twice in suc-
cessive minutes earlier in the sec-
ond half.
San Jose extended its unbeaten
streak at Buck Shaw Stadium to 18
matches, moving to 11-0-7 since
Aug. 13, 2011. The Earthquakes are
unbeaten in eight matches overall.
The Galaxy (15-12-6) are virtual-

Los Angeles outshot San Jose 11-

rolled just wide. Busch charged off
his line to make saves against
Buddle in the 22nd minute and

The Galaxy grabbed back the
momentum in the 59th with a play

Irish international sprung Buddle
loose on the left wing, and the
return cross bounced off two
Earthquakes defenders and dropped
down for Keane to jam home at the
edge of the 6-yard box.
San Jose responded in the 61st
minute with a beautiful 25-yard free
kick from Chavez, who bent his
effort over the wall and tucked it
just inside the near post.
Buddle outjumped Victor
Bernardez in the 69th minute to
knock home a relatively simple
header off Sean Franklins deep
right-wing cross.
But the Quakes tied things up
with another set-piece strike in the
73rd minute. Chavez delivered a
corner into a seething Galaxy box,
where Wondolowski conjured up a
diving header for his eighth goal in
six games.
Earthquakes rally to tie Galaxy 2-2
By Julio Lara
It came down to one play.
And that scenario in a football
game can be just as fullling as it is
heartbreaking even in a whale of
a game, one team has to lose and the
other win, based on that one play.
On Saturday, after a 60-minute
heavyweight dogght between the
College of San Mateo and City
College of San Francisco, it was the
Rams who erased a 4-point decit
in the last two minutes of the game
and celebrated a 31-28 win over the
On Saturday, that play belonged
to the Rams.
CCSF traveled 48 yards on ve
plays and converted on a 6-yard
touchdown pass with 1:08 left on
the clock to take a 31-28 lead and
crushing CSM hearts everywhere.
We needed one more stop, one
more sack, you can look at a lot of
different one-play scenarios in a
game like that, said CSM defensive
coordinator and assistant head
coach Tim Tulloch. Instead of
doing that with our guys, we just
told them, it was a heck of battle. It
came down to a 1-play game. I felt
like those guys laid it all down on
the eld and they played extremely
hard everything they put into it
was the main thing for our guys.
There are no regrets.
In a tight game like Saturdays,
its hard not to go back and point at
certain plays, penalties or decisions
that might have made a 3 or 4-point
difference for the Bulldogs. CSM
scored the go-ahead touchdown
with 8:54 to play an 84-yard
touchdown pass from Blake
Plattsmier to Levi Wilson that
stunned a Rams team that had dom-
inated the second half up to that
point. Then, with CCSF driving,
CSMS Deshane Hines came up
with an interception at the Bulldog
2-yard line with 3:54 left in the
The Bulldogs had the Rams on
the ropes and needed to pound out a
rst down or two to milk the rest of
the clock and come away with an
upset of the No. 1 team in the state.
But instead, CSM used up only 1:07
and punted the ball back to CCSF,
giving them a 1st-and-10 at the
Bulldog 48-yard line. Five plays

later, the Rams dashed CSM hopes.
Ill tell you what, Im proud of
the effort of our kids, Tulloch said.
They came out and from the get-
go, we came out, punched it in and
scored. And we put ourselves posi-
tion to win it. It came down to a
play. The guy from San Francisco
made a great play, but the effort by
our kids was outstanding.
The Bulldogs did so many things
right. First, they came out and used
two minutes to march 75 yards and
score the initial touchdown on a 28-
yard run by George Naufahu.
CSMs defense was dialed in during
that entire rst half. CCSF did score
the game-tying touchdown ve min-
utes later after an 11-play drive and
repeated the feat following a Aaron
Criswell 45-yard touchdown catch
that was actually thrown to him by
Quincy Nelson on the halfback pass.
CCSF quarterback Andrew
Spivey drove the Rams down the
eld 61 yards with 7:51 left in the
half to tie the game at 14.
But the Bulldogs cashed in a huge
special teams mistake by CCSF on a
punt turned fumble and Plattsmier
plowed his way into the end zone
with seconds left in the half to give
CSM the eye-opening advantage at
We were there, Tulloch said.
We didnt give up cheap plays,
they didnt get anything over the
top. They had to earn everything
they got.
The stat sheet favored CSM at the
half with the Bulldogs up 203 to 142
in total yards and only 37 yards
rushing for the Rams.
But CCSF seized control and the
momentum in the third quarter. The
Rams outscored the Bulldogs 10-0
in that frame and held on to the ball
for almost 10 minutes keeping
the CSM offense off the eld. CCSF
got its rst lead of the game on a
eld goal with 2:09 left in the quar-
ter setting up a very tense fourth
quarter of action.
We felt we were good against
their run game at halftime, Tulloch
said. In the second half, it was pret-
ty much the same runs, he
(Kristoffer Olugbode) just ran hard-
er in the third quarter.
A tense fourth quarter is exactly
what it turned out to be for both
teams. CSM got the rst big play on
an 84-yard touchdown reception by
Wilson. On that snap, an overthrown
fade ball up the sideline by Plattsmier
ended up in the hands of Wilson who
never gave up on, circled around it
and then blazed his way into the end
zone for the 28-24 lead.
From there, the two defenses went
toe to toe and when Hines intercept-
ed a ball late in the contest, it looked
like the Bulldogs would pull off the
big win.
But with the ball on its 2-yard
line, CSM could not gain a rst
down and had to punt the ball back
to a CCSF offense that is head-deep
in talent. And that 11-man unit
needed ve plays to pluck its way
down the eld and get the eventual
game-winning score.

f you are among the few thousand cat
owners who have called the Peninsula
Humane Society & SPCAs free
Behavioral Helpline seeking advice in
recent years, odds are you spoke with our
volunteer, Marilyn, who takes the great
majority of our cat calls and regularly solves
peoples issues. She can be feisty, opinionat-
ed and direct but rarely in doubt. If I had a
cat with puzzling or problematic behaviors,
Id want my advice served up Marilyn
style every time. Marilyn knows cats and
isnt bashful. Shes the Judge Judy of the cat
world. Someone, please, get this lady her
own TV show! Joking aside, it might hap-
pen. Marilyn, aka the Cat Coach, has written
a book (Naughty No More, a 2011 award
winner) and spoken at national conferences.
Shes the go-to cat expert guest for KGO-
Radios Ronn Owens and shes done a few
television gigs, including spots on Animal
Planets Cats 101. Were fortunate that she
lends her time and talents to our helpline.
Now that Ive sufciently buttered her up, I
feel like I can borrow from her. So, in no
particular order, Marilyns, uh, the Cat
Coachs, top mistakes cat owners make: not
providing enough litter boxes should be
one per cat and one extra for the house; not
enough stimulation to avoid boredom,
leave the stereo on and tuned to your cats
fave station; placing cat boxes too closely to
the food bowl; overusing a laser pointer,
which can cause frustration. If you dont
have a cat, but have been considering adopt-
ing, nows the time. The Peninsula Humane
Society & SPCA has waived all adoption
fees for cats and kittens. Please note its not
a free for all. We have a counseling session
with each adoption to ensure good matches.
Think of it as a conversation, not an interro-
gation. Finally, we hope you never have a
behavioral issue with your cat. But, if you
do, remember our helpline.

Scary movie fans are still into
Paranormal Activity, though the
horror franchise looks as though its
starting to run out of steam at the
box ofce.
Paramounts Paranormal
Activity 4 debuted at No. 1 with
$30.2 million, a big drop from the
$40 million and $50 million open-
ing weekends of the last two install-
ments, according to studio estimates
Perpetual hit maker Tyler Perry
failed to nd an audience for his
new persona as an ace crime solver.
Summit Entertainments Alex
Cross, starring Perry as author
James Pattersons brilliant criminal
proler, was a dud, opening at No. 5
with $11.8 million.
Perry has written, directed and
starred in a string of hits featuring
his sassy grandma Madea, which
mostly have had opening weekends
two and three times bigger than that
of Alex Cross. Fans didnt buy
into Perry as the title character, who
goes up against a diabolical serial
Hes become so identied and so
successful with the Madea franchise
that when he steps outside of that, it
doesnt necessarily follow that the
audience is going along with him,
said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst
for box-office tracker Its fun for him to
stretch out a little bit, but it didnt
really pay off.
Ben Afecks Iran hostage tale
Argo held up well in its second
weekend, remaining at No. 2 with
$16.6 million, dropping just 15 per-
cent from its debut. Big studio
releases often drop 50 percent or
more in subsequent weekends, but
Argo has proven a hit with critics
and audiences alike, earning
Academy Awards buzz and strong
word of mouth that should give it a
long run at theaters.
Affleck, who also directed
Argo, plays a CIA specialist who
concocts a wild plan to rescue six
Americans hiding in Tehran after
the 1979 takeover of the U.S.
embassy there.
Released by Warner Bros.,
Argo raised its domestic total to
$43.2 million.
Liam Neesons action sequel
Taken 2, which had been No. 1
the previous two weekends, slipped
to fourth place with $13.4 million,
lifting the 20th Century Fox
releases domestic haul to $106 mil-
Adam Sandlers animated hit
Hotel Transylvania, from Sony
Pictures, also held up well at No. 3
with $13.5 million, pushing its
domestic earnings to $119 million.
While domestic revenues were
way down for the fourth
Paranormal Activity flick, the
franchise remains a big moneymak-
er for distributor Paramount.
Paranormal Activity 4 was pro-
duced on a tiny budget of $5 mil-
lion, continuing the franchises
trend of turning minimal invest-
ments into tidy prots.
For us, the focus is always, what
are these movies made for and how
profitable are they? Within
Paramount, its a colossal success,
said Don Harris, the studios head
of distribution. A $5 million movie
that has an opening weekend of over
$30 million, its really kind of irrel-
evant what No. 2 or No. 3 did. The
movies really stand on their own.
Overseas, Paranormal Activity
4 had a good start with $26.5 mil-
lion in 33 countries, giving it a
worldwide total of $56.7 million.
In limited release, Fox
Searchlights acclaimed drama
The Sessions did solid business,
opening with $121,005 in four the-
aters in New York City and Los
Angeles, for a healthy average of
$30,251 a cinema. By comparison,
Paranormal Activity 4 averaged
$8,851 in 3,412 theaters.
The Sessions stars John
Hawkes and Helen Hunt in the true-
life story of a man, paralyzed by
polio and stuck in an iron lung most
of his life, who hires a sexual surro-
gate so he can lose his virginity. The
lm expands to more cities over the
next month.
While Paranormal Activity 4
fell short of the franchises third
installment, which opened over the
same weekend last year, overall
Hollywood revenues continued to
rise after a late-summer slump.
Strong holdovers such as Argo,
Hotel Transylvania and Taken 2
made the difference, with domestic
business totaling $131 million, up 8
percent from the same weekend a
year ago, according to Revenues were up
for the fourth-straight weekend.
Last year, the box ofce was so
top-heavy with Paranormal
Activity 3, and the rest of the lms
really underperformed,
Dergarabedian said. This year, we
have a much more balanced lineup.
Box-ofce activity slows for Paranormal

run their cable cars. Two branches to the
Golden Gate Park (Haight and McAllister
streets) were built later and, by 1887, they had
four branches built. In 1883, they built a pow-
erhouse at Valencia and Market streets.
In 1893, the line acquired the San Mateo
Electric trolley line and acquired another line
to Golden Gate Park. This line ran east-west
on Lincoln Avenue, entered into the park,
exited along the Great Highway and ended at
Sutro Heights and served the Cliff House.
This is the only line that was ever given a fran-
chise into Golden Gate Park and the franchise
lasted into the 1940s. Acquisition of this fran-
chise gave this line an advantage to serve the
public at the 1894 San Francisco Midwinter
In 1902, the property of the Market Street
Railway was acquired by Baltimore Syndicate
and, after merging with the Sutter Street
Railway, SF and San Mateo Electric Railway,
it was renamed United Railways of SF
(URR). The lines administration was much to
be desired, however, and a lot of graft and cor-
ruption led it to bankruptcy in 1921. The
bankrupt lines were transferred back to the
nancial holder the Market Street Railway.
It now, under new management, improved its
public image and goal and became a money-
maker again.
A railway demands constant attention and
maintenance of its cars. It is costly. This is
costly attention and put the line into bankrupt-
cy eventually. The line was sold again, this
time to the Byllesby Corporation who brought
in Samuel Kahn to run it. Regulations
imposed, however, on the franchise forced
another adjustment later and, in 1944, the line
was acquired by the MUNI of San Francisco.
Now the city of San Francisco was in a posi-
tion to coordinate the transportation system
city-wide and it did.

and school bond requests in addition
to the statewide tax questions.
The 19-year-old said she is
inclined to support both the gover-
nors tax initiative and Sacramentos
Measure U, a sales tax increase to
rebuild police, re and park services
that were cut severely during the
She said the local tax increase will
make the city safer. If both
Proposition 30 and Measure U pass,
shoppers in Californias capital city
will pay 8.5 percent in sales tax for
the next several years.
Although it is high, compared to
Oregon especially, which has no
sales tax, I think well be ne with
it, said Shannon, who attends the
University of Portland and was reg-
istering to vote during a brief visit
home last week. From my perspec-
tive, Measure U is great because our
city is not safe, and helping with
prevention programs and giving
money to beef up the police force, I
think thats very benecial to the
city of Sacramento.
Like the City Council members in
Sacramento who backed Measure U,
local government and school of-
cials elsewhere say their requests are
a reection of the impact the reces-
sion and its declining tax revenue
have had on government services.
Yet the number of local tax meas-
ures facing voters could very well
make Browns sales job harder.
The last time a statewide tax
increase was approved by California
voters was a millionaires tax for
mental health programs in 2004.
I think its going to play very
negatively, said David Wolfe, leg-
islative director with the Howard
Jarvis Taxpayers Association, an
anti-tax group. We have already the
highest state sales tax in the nation
by far. We still have a 10.8 percent
unemployment rate, 2 million
Californians are still out of work,
and its hard to justify increases in
regressive taxes of this nature when
municipalities and the state havent
addressed the pension issue or a
rainy day fund or spending disci-
The board of the Coast
Community College District in
Orange County decided it was time
to put a $698 million bond question
on the ballot because the district has
a long list of much-needed repairs
and upgrades to the three-college
system, said Jim Moreno, the
boards president. Many of the col-
lege systems 60,000 students are
seeking to re-enter the workforce
after serving in the military.
Its because money is not coming
to us and we have to ask the people
who have invested in us before to do
it again, Moreno said of Measure
M. Its not that were in competi-
tion (with the governor) or were rid-
ing coattails. Everybody is hurting.
Moreno said he believes voters
will understand the need to invest in
education at a time when the college
staff has accepted a 2.5 percent pay
cut and fees have jumped from $26 a
unit to $46.
The San Diego Unied School
District is asking for one of the
largest bond measures. Measure Z is
a $2.8 billion bond to repair 60-year-
old classrooms and improve
libraries, wiring, plumbing, bath-
rooms and leaky roofs, not to men-
tion removing hazardous materials
and upgrading technology.
In Tulare County, in the southern
San Joaquin Valley, 12 local meas-
ures have qualified for the
November ballot. Among them are
ve school bonds, a school parcel
tax and a tax on hotel stays in the
city of Exeter.
There are 35 proposals to extend
or increase local sales taxes in
November, and 10 of those seek to
increase or extend local sales taxes
by a full 1 cent in Moraga,
Maricopa, La Mirada, Carmel,
Hollister, Yucca Valley, Lathrop,
Faireld, Clearlake and Alameda
The debate over Sacramentos
Measure U is an example of the
debate seen in communities
throughout California over raising
taxes during a recession. It would
impose a half-cent sales tax for six
years to raise about $28 million year
for general city services.
Supporters say the money is need-
ed to restore recent cuts to police,
re and parks. Opponents say the
city has not done all it can to negoti-
ate better labor deals that would save
taxpayers money in the long run.
Business leaders say they are
opposed to Measure U because it
puts the capital at a competitive dis-
advantage. If the proposal passes,
Sacramentos sales tax would rise
from 7.75 percent to 8.25 percent, 1
percent higher than in neighboring
Placer County.
The more tax measures that are
on the same ballot, the higher likeli-
hood that all of them get a no vote,
said Roger Niello, a former state
lawmaker who is president of the
Sacramento Metro Chamber, which
opposed the measure.
Its got to create a certain amount
of exasperation Oh my good-
ness, theres more, Niello added.
And theres also potential confu-
Browns initiative would boost the
statewide sales tax by a quarter cent
for four years.
Sonja Patel a researcher at the
Public Policy Institute of California,
said surveys have shown majority
support for local parcel tax measures
to fund public schools. EdSource, a
nonpartisan group that compiles
public school data, said parcel taxes
had a passage rate of 61 percent
even during the downtown, from
2008 through 2010.

Meera was then taken to Community
Gatepaths Niall P. McCarthy Center for
Children & Families in Burlingame for an
assessment and started speech therapy almost
Agarwal brings Meera in to the childrens
center weekly for private sessions with speech
pathologist Katie Krabbenschmidt, who for-
merly worked for San Mateo County for about
30 years in special day classes.
Meera is just more than 2 years old now and
her parents want to make sure she has all the
tools necessary to succeed in life.
Krabbenschmidt uses toys, books and a box
full of various items to engage Meera.
With Halloween approaching,
Krabbenschmidt read a childrens book with
Meera that had the phrase trick-or-treat repeat-
ed in it.
Meera has had some troubles pronouncing
her Ts.
Trick-or-treat, Krabbenschmidt would say.
Meera would repeat the phrase but not quite
right so Krabbenschmidt placed her hand on
the little girls cheeks and gave a little squeeze.
This time Meera repeated the phrase and the
T was a little more pronounced.
They also painted a pumpkin together.
Its important for the children to investigate.
It is how they learn, Krabbenschmidt said.
Getting a little messy is quite OK as long as
progress is being made, she said.
Judy Agarwal is amazed that
Krabbenschmidt can literally carry on a 30-
minute conversation with a 2-year-old.
Katie is so inspiring, she said.
At the end of the one-on-one session,
Krabbenschmidt will write up a synopsis of the
visit and send the mother home with some
coaching tools.
Early involvement
Krabbenschmidt has a long history of work-
ing with children with disabilities and helped
start San Mateo Countys Assistive Technology
Augmentative and Alternative Communication
Resource Center for students with disabilities
enrolled in special day classes.
The earlier you get involved, the better the
outcome, even for children with severe handi-
caps, Krabbenschmidt said.
Even a child with autism can learn how to
articulate with speech therapy, she said.
The goal is to get the children prepared for
kindergarten, she said.
Half the job is getting the parents involved,
Krabbenschmidt said.
Krabbenschmidt also works with small
groups of very young children and their par-
ents, nannies or other caregivers.
They dance, sing, paint, explore and learn
how to pronounce lots and lots of words.
One little girl had her very rst group session
with Krabbenschmidt recently.
Initially, she would say no to such activi-
ties as painting and denitely was apprehensive
about getting paint on her hands.
Once she did, however, she didnt seem to
mind. In fact, she stared at her green-painted
hand for quite awhile.
It is the kind of exploration that leads to
learning, Krabbenschmidt said.
In circle time, Krabbenschmidt uses a bag of
goodies to teach new words. The children were
learning W words.
She pulled out a watch, said the word and
had the children repeat. She then passed
around the watch for the children to hold onto
and one of them put it on their wrist.
More learning, Krabbenschmidt said.
She then put on a witchs hat to the childrens
delight as they learned yet another new word.
All the children were under 3 years old.
Giving the children good speech skills leads
to social interaction and fuller lives,
Krabbenschmidt said.
The Niall P. McCarthy Center
The McCarthy Center in Burlingame focus-
es on early intervention and preschool services
and has allowed Community Gatepath to
expand its childrens services to include
Learning Links, an inclusive preschool where
children ages 3 to 5 with and without disabili-
ties learn and thrive together.
About 80 percent of children in preschool at
the center do not have special needs and about
20 percent do, said Gabrielle Karampelas, vice
president of Strategic Initiatives and
Collaborations at Community Gatepath.
The inclusion approach allows for team
building, developing social skills and building
friendships between those with and without
developmental disabilities.
Karampelas recalls an incident when a child
with developmental disabilities came to the
center for the rst time and was approached by
another child who asked him if he wanted to
ride one of the centers adaptive tricycles.
The mother broke out crying immediately,
Karampelas said, because no child of any abil-
ity had ever even approached her child.
Services are offered at the Niall P. McCarthy
Center in a therapeutic and supportive environ-
ment that focuses on a childs motor, cognitive,
communication, social and emotional develop-
The center has also started offering counsel-
ing services for parents who need a little stress
relief or guidance in caring for their children.
Judy Agarwal sees the benefits that
Community Gatepath offers her daughter.
I see the progress, Agarwal said.
She now looks at other parents who have
children with similar conditions and notices
sometimes that they can be in denial about any
potential developmental disabilities their child
may have.
Agarwal is happy she got Meera into speech
therapy early.
I just want to give her the right tools to get
her where she needs to be, Agarwal said.
Community Gatepath offers early interven-
tion services for children ages birth to 3 years.

Most valuable to parents new to the organization is that they can
see that they are not alone that other parents share the same
experiences in raising a child with a developmental disability,
Macedo said.
Statistically, parents with children with developmental disabili-
ties have higher divorce rates.
Sometimes parents arent on the same page when it comes to
being involved with the child and what the responsibilities are,
Macedo said.
Support group topics can range from the difculties in potty
training, how to deal with tantrums and how much a parent should
engage their child.
Extended family, such as aunts and uncles or grandparents, also
typically take a great part in caring for children with developmen-
tal disabilities. Since many parents are stuck at work, nannies may
also take great care of the children.
This group can also suffer grief and Community Gatepath reach-
es out to them as well to offer support.
Getting through the holidays can also be a trying time, Macedo
Many parents suffer anxiety and worry, low self-esteem and
depression, relationship problems, communication or parenting
problems with their partners.
Macedo has six years experience working in marriage and fami-
ly therapy, with an emphasis on helping individuals and families
living with special needs. Her counseling style is based on cogni-
tive behavioral therapy.
Her approach combines support, empathy and openness to help
overcome lifes challenges. She teaches skills that support parents
lead a meaningful and fullling life.
She also conducts a social skills group class that develops the
personal and social understanding needed for someone with a
developmental disability in the transition to adulthood. The main
focus is on developing social condence while eliminating anxiety
around peers.

considering certifying the programs
environmental impact report and, if so,
follow with adoption of the prohibition
San Mateo County has approximately
7,705 unincorporated retailers that use
plastic bags, including those at San
Francisco International Airport.
Twenty-four cities in San Mateo and
Santa Clara counties also participated in
the EIR process but each city council
will need to adopt the ban for it to be
effective in those jurisdictions.
When we set out to do this we were
really looking at modeling a regional
approach. It is a regional problem that
needs a regional solution, said Dean
Peterson, director of environmental
The EIR is also needed to help head
off any potential concerns or lawsuits
that have dogged early efforts by other
cities to eliminate bags.
The EIR process cost the county
$40,000 and Supervisor Carole Groom
said it was well spent.
It was very well worth the expensive.
They suffocate and kill marine life and
habitat which makes up for any of the
minimal cost, Groom said.
The ordinance will prohibit single-use
bags and require retailers to charge
although they can voluntarily choose to
give free bags to food stamp and WIC
Bags without handles for medicine or
to segregate food that might contami-
nate are exempt as are nonprots like
Goodwill. Restaurants can still send
food in to-go bags, too, although
Peterson said that could change in the
future if hes comfortable that reusable
bags wont lead to cross-contamination.
I am not yet convinced we do not
have a public health concern, Peterson
The 717-page EIR estimates bag use
within the study area at 552 million per
year. The document also nds benets to
air quality, biological resources and
water quality. Any increase of green-
house gas emissions and water use is
less than signicant, it also concluded.
County ofcials hope ongoing out-
reach and public hearings will lead to
little pushback of what Peterson called
a major behavioral change for cus-
Unlike the countys polystyrene ban
which put the onus on businesses, the
bag prohibition requires consumers to
alter their behavior, Peterson said.
David Lewis, executive director of
nonprot Save the Bay, chalked the lack
of strong opposition in San Mateo
County to the outreach effort and the
growing acceptance of bans. With San
Mateo County and afliated cities on
board, Lewis said the entire area from
San Jose to San Francisco will have bans
in place.
Thats whats really exciting and
should really make a dent in the prob-
lem, Lewis said.
California uses 19 billion plastic bags
annually and Save the Bay estimates a
million end up in San Francisco Bay
each year, Lewis said.
The bags choke wildlife, smother wet-
lands, leach toxins into the food chain
and are not biodegradable, he said.
Lewis pointed out that the California
Grocers Association supports bans as
long as they are uniform rather than a
patchwork of differing restrictions.
Supervisor Adrienne Tissier said blan-
ket restrictions on a regional basis are
also good for businesses because cus-
tomers cant threaten to go elsewhere if
they dont care for the lack of bags.
The cities included in the San Mateo
County EIR are Belmont, Brisbane,
Burlingame, Colma, Daly City, East
Palo Alto, Foster City, Half Moon Bay,
Menlo Park, Millbrae, Pacica, Portola
Valley, Redwood City, San Bruno, San
Carlos, San Mateo, South San

Finding new ways to incentivize peo-
ple is Duggans day job. As CEO and co-
founder of Redwood City-based
Badgeville, Duggans company offers
social solutions to engage a companys
customers or employees. That can come
in the form of a game, a process known
as gamication, but is often a unique
challenge. Today, the company, which
recently celebrated its second birthday,
also surpassed 200 customers interested
in increasing engagement.
Were working at the intersection of
psychology and technology, said
Duggan was working with lots of
business to business companies before
starting Badgeville. The biggest prob-
lem they saw was getting people to actu-
ally use the software. At the same time,
Duggan had friends working at Zynga
who noted how easy it was to get people
involved through the social games being
In 2010, Badgeville was born. The
focus for the rst year was mainly on
helping companies engage their clients.
In the last year, there has been an
increasing demand to help companies
encourage their employees to work
harder. In addition, companies were
struggling to get employees to utilize
new software, Duggan said.
To start, Badgeville was offering solu-
tions for driving customer behavior and
engagement. Many people turn to mon-
etary enticements. Duggan, however,
said the key is thinking about other ways
a person could benet. For example,
perhaps someone enjoys reviewing par-
ticular types of restaurants. After con-
tributing a certain number of reviews, he
or she could be dubbed an expert in the
topic, he said.
On Facebook, for example, people
contribute more when what they post is
liked or results in conversation, he said.
Creating a more robust user communi-
ty can have other benefits. Duggan
pointed to a company called Engine
Yard, a San Francisco-based company
that offers development tools for appli-
cations. By engaging customers and cre-
ating a community in which users could
discuss what they found, the company
decreased the number of support tickets.
More recently, companies came to
Badgeville with a new challenge: moti-
vating employees. Often employees
arent putting 100 percent into a job for
a variety of reasons they dont feel
appreciated or that the extra effort is
unnoticed. Adding a program by which
employees earn points, get to a new
level or are given a virtual badge are all
possible ways of showcasing his or her
work, said Duggan.
It all comes down to nding new ways
to incentivize people. That often relies
on recognition rather than offering
money or free shipping, he said. Since
the social media world is always chang-
ing, so are the challenges before
Badgeville. Duggan enjoys that the psy-
chology is always changing. Ways to
connect are also shifting. It keeps him
and his employees on their toes.

A weekly look at the people who
shape our community
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Make a mental game
out of any diffculties that you might have to contend
with. Your capacity for achievement will be greatly
enhanced if you dont take anything too seriously.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Although youre likely
to be extremely enterprising, you wont necessarily be
working for personal gain. Its more apt to be the needs
and wants of those you love that will motivate you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- As long as you
act on your ideas, your probabilities for success look
to be extremely encouraging. Two of your greatest
assets are your imagination and initiative.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- This could be a ma-
terially rewarding day for you, but, surprisingly, not
necessarily due to your own efforts. All the good that
befalls you might be derived from an indirect source.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Youll perform twice
as effciently working with persons who know exactly
where they are going rather than with those who are
more carefree. Choose wisely.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Dont look for prob-
lems, but dont run away from them either. This is a
day when you should be able to respond unusually
well to challenging situations.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) --Regardless of your
circumstances and/or problems, think positive --
whether you realize it or not, this is an excellent day
for fulflling your hopes and desires.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Its perfectly OK to be
bold when striving to achieve your purposes, but not
to the point of foolhardiness. If bravado is required in
certain cases, use it sparingly.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The answers that youve
been searching for can be found by discussing your
concerns with someone who knows how to listen
and has advised you correctly in the past.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you spot a develop-
ment that shows possibilities of being fnancially
meaningful, go ahead and exploit it, but do so care-
fully. It might be more complex than it initially
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone with whom youre
involved could presently be on a lucky roll that could
include you if you dont get cold feet. Instead of run-
ning away, snuggle up even closer.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Youre in a better-than-
usual cycle for achieving more meaningful objectives,
especially those that are related to your personal ambi-
tions and material security. Go after things with gusto.

SAN FRANCISCO A whale, a swan, a
pair of star-crossd lovers: It made for an
eclectic week at the San Francisco Opera.
With the companys fall season in full
swing, three different works took the stage on
consecutive nights Thursday through
Saturday. First was Jake Heggies intermit-
tently enthralling adaptation of Moby-Dick;
next, Bellinis retelling of the Romeo and
Juliet story, I Capuleti e i Montecchi, in a
ravishingly sung, foolishly staged production;
and, best of all, Wagners Lohengrin, featur-
ing a break-out performance by emerging
heldentenor Brandon Jovanovich.
Moby-Dick, a hit at its premiere in Dallas
in 2010 and successfully revived several times
since, benets from a savvy libretto by Gene
Scheer, which boils down Melvilles sprawl-
ing novel to a coherent narrative, while main-
taining chunks of his poetic language.
Heggies music is energetic and appealing-
ly melodic, with echoes of Puccini, Britten,
Sibelius and even Bernard Herrmann lm
scores. The rst act maintains an exciting
momentum, but Act 2, which should hurtle us
toward the catastrophic meeting with the great
white whale, bogs down in static exchanges.
The biggest weakness of the score is its fail-
ure to capture the tragic grandeur of Captain
Ahabs obsession. We get an embittered and
stubborn old man, not the figure of
Shakespearean depth depicted by Melville.
That limitation extends to the performance
of tenor Jay Hunter Morris as Ahab. Vocally
he is ne, but he seems more gruff and queru-
lous than awe-inspiring. Four cast members
are repeating roles they sang at the premiere.
Most impressive are tenor Stephen Costello as
a lyrical Greenhorn (his last words are the
novels rst: Call me Ishmael) and baritone
Morgan Smith as Starbuck, the rst mate who
tries to reason Ahab out of his madness. Bass-
baritone Jonathan Lemalu and soprano Talise
Trevigne are also good as, respectively, the
harpooner Queequeg and the cabin boy Pip.
Patrick Summers, who conducted the pre-
miere, leads a rousing performance.
The inventive production, directed by
Leonard Foglia with sets by Robert Brill, pro-
jections by Elaine J. McCarthy and lighting
by Gavan Swift, contributes greatly to the
evening. Theres a magical moment in Act 1
when the crew of the Pequod encounter a pod
of whales. As the men rush to the back of the
stage, the ship disappears and they are sud-
denly in boats that seem to be tossing on a tur-
bulent sea. Its a shame the designers chose
not to represent the whale itself in the nal
scene; were left watching the men and ship
being torn to pieces by an unseen enemy.
Bellinis setting of the story of Romeo and
Juliet, I Capuleti e i Montecchi is packed
with limpid melodies that in the wrong hands
can seem insipid. But there was no danger of
that with Joyce DiDonato and Nicole Cabell
as the lovers. DiDonato, peerless among
todays bel canto mezzos-sopranos, imbued
Romeo with burnished, even tone, full of
ardent longing. Cabell, making her company
debut, has a warm, silvery sound that blended
well with DiDonatos, though she skipped
many of the traditional coloratura ornamenta-
tions. Tenor Saimir Pirgu as Tebaldo let forth
some compelling high notes but otherwise
failed to make much impact; the commanding
bass-baritone Eric Owens seemed wasted in
the role of Giuliettas father, Capellio.
Riccardo Frizza conducted stylishly.
The production, directed by Vincent
Broussard and rst seen in Munich, is a mish-
mash, intent on imposing social commentary
on the fragile plot. Reective metallic walls
dominate the set, and Cabell spent much of
her time singing up against them with her
back to the audience; she also had to perch
precariously on an elevated prayer stand (it
looked more like a wash basin) for her open-
ing aria, and later sang while teetering on an
imaginary wall. It was all rather distracting.
Costume designer Christian Lacroix dressed
the men in top hats, and a group of gaudily
dressed non-singing courtesans appeared with
owers in their mouths apparently to rep-
resent the fact that women had no voice in the
The premiere of Lohengrin marked the
rst time Jovanovich had performed the title
role, yet he seemed comfortable in the role
from his opening lines, singing with melting
sweetness as he bid farewell to the swan that
has brought him to Elsa. As the vocal line
soared, he repeatedly summoned high notes
that pierced through the orchestration with a
heroic gleam. He maintained his freshness
even in the arduous nal scene though as
he took his curtain call to a standing ovation,
he grinned and wiped his brow as if in relief.
Moreover, with his youthful, handsome
physique, he made a compellingly human g-
ure of the knight of the Holy Grail, capturing
both Lohengrins otherworldliness and his
romantic longing. Jovanovich sang impres-
sively as Siegmund in the companys Ring
cycle two years ago, and now with this
Lohengrin he has entered the front ranks of
Wagnerian singers.
The rest of the cast gave excellent support.
Soprano Camilla Nylund made a sympathetic
and true-voiced Elsa, who can have
Lohengrin as her husband as long as she never
asks his name. Soprano Petra Lang tore with
relish into the role of the sorceress Ortrud,
hurling out chilling high notes in her invoca-
tion to the pagan gods; baritone Gerd
Grochowski sang with anguished force as her
husband, Telramund; Kristinn Sigmundsson
intoned the role of King Henry with stentori-
an power, and baritone Brian Mulligan was a
stalwart Herald. The chorus, hugely important
in this opera, sang magnicently, and the
orchestra played with sweep and majesty
under music director Nicola Luisotti.
The production by Daniel Slater, previously
seen in Geneva and Houston, suffers from
some of the same updating-itis as the Bellini.
Sets and costumes, instead of representing
10th century Germany, are inspired by the
1956 Hungarian revolution, with choristers
dressed as Soviet-style ofcers and freedom-
ghting partisans. Fortunately, Slater doesnt
let the concept interfere with the drama as it
plays out among the four principals, and his
staging does have the merit of being unusual-
ly uid.
Mostly, though, the musical glories of the
evening carry everything in their path.

There Is
New Hope!
A Health Center
Dedicated to
Severe Disc
Youve seen the ads and heard the
radio commercials about my Non-
Surgical Spinal Decompression
treatment. At Crossroads Health
Center, Ive created an entire facility
dedicated to patients with severe disc
conditions that have not responded
to traditional care. My revolutionary,
Crossroads Method, provides a very
high success rate to patients with
serious back, neck, leg and arm pain
even when all else has failed. This
FDA cleared; non-surgical treatment
allows us to rehabilitate your
herniated or degenerative disc(s)
by reversing internal pressure and
enabling your disc(s) to heal from the
inside out. We succeed where other
treatments have failed by removing
the pressure that is causing pain to
your disc(s) and nerves without
drugs, injections, invasive surgery or
harmful side effects.
The only ofce to have
The Crossroads Method
This method which includes
computerized true disc
decompression is considered by
many doctors to be the most
advanced and successful non-
invasive treatment of serious back,
neck, leg or arm pain.
This procedure allows for a much
higher success rate by increasing
hydration of your discs, fexibility,
relaxation of muscles and ligaments
along with improving muscle and
core strength, balance and posture.
This results in a more effective and
lasting solution to your pain. There
are no side effects and no recovery
time is required.
This gentle and relaxing treatment
has proven to be effective even
when drugs, epidurals, traditional
chiropractic, physical therapy
and surgery have failed The
Crossroads Method has shown
dramatic results.
Patient Testimonials
During the 1 1/2 years of having
constant daily lower back pain and
spasms, I took anti-infammatory
and pain medication, but nothing
helped lessen the pain. When
an MRI showed that I had two
degenerative discs, I went through a
series of lumbar epidural injections
without success. The only thing
that made the pain and spasms go
away was Spinal Decompression
treatments at Crossroads Health
Center. Four years later and I am
still pain-free!
Lisa K.
My severe low back and sciatica
pain have been reduced signifcantly
since receiving spinal decompression
therapy at Crossroads Health Center.
I am now able to walk, golf, and do
things that I havent been able to do in
years! I would also like to say thanks
to Dr. Ferrigno and the offce staff as
they went above and beyond to make
sure my back problem was resolved. I
couldnt be happier!!
