Fighting for victims
and their families
By Michelle Durand
Redwood City Planning
Commission approved plans to
develop Pete’s Harbor into 411
waterfront residences that tenants
facing eviction say will rob the city
of an irreplaceable community but
that supporters say was the dream of
the man who created the marina.
The Planning Commission voted
unanimously after hearing hours of
testimony from both those who
asked it to slow, if not stop, and oth-
ers who say selling the private land
to a private developer is the right of
owner Paula Uccelli. Uccelli’s late
husband, Pete, opened the 21-acre
harbor in 1958 and turned it into the
iconic landmark at the heart of the
tug-of-war between Paula Uccelli
and those who live aboard boats
The project will seriously
enhance the area and increase pub-
lic use, said Commissioner Shawn
White before Commissioner Janet
Borgens moved to approve the per-
mit. The other commissioners, too,
assured the crowd the decision was
not based on emotion or the popu-
larity of the land owner.
“We are hurting for you guys,”
said Chair Ernie Schmidt to the ten-
ants that will need to move.
The proposal didn’t require zon-
ing changes and therefore no special
approvals by the city because it does
not include high-rise buildings or
the filling in of the Bay. A previous-
ly certified environmental impact
report for the earlier now-defunct
Marina Shores Village project that
included Pete’s Harbor is sufficient.
The project, to be located on the
north side of Highway 101 between
Bair Island Road and Redwood

Victims of the fatal 2010 gas line
explosion in San Bruno can seek
punitive damages in the case against
Pacific Gas and Electric Company, a
judge ruled Tuesday.
Enough evidence of wrongdoing
is available that a reasonable jury
could decide to award victims mil-
lions in punitive damages, Judge
Steven Dylina said yesterday.
Dylina’s decision, which goes
against the utility company’s
request, means a jury will have the
opportunity to decide on the matter.
More than 300 people are named in
suits against PG&E. A trial date for
the cases is set for January.
If a jury awards punitive damages,
it would be in addition to money

under submission yesterday after both the
prosecution and defense for William Hamilton
Ayres rested their cases. He will ask both sides
any lingering questions at 10 a.m. today before
issuing a decision, said Deputy District
Attorney Karen Guidotti.
At stake is whether Ayres, 80, will return to
Napa State Hospital with the possibility of one
day being released home or to a nursing facil-
ity or if he will instead
stand trial and face prison
for allegedly abusing sev-
eral young boys in his care
decades ago. Ayres is
accused of molesting sev-
eral patients under the
guise of medical exams
between 1988 and 1996.
Ayres stood trial once
before but the jury hung
and he was declared incompetent before
another prosecution occurred. Earlier this year,
Napa State Hospital returned Ayres to San
Mateo County based on a report concluding he
was malingering, or exaggerating his condition
deliberately to avoid a second trial.
Beginning Friday and continuing through
Tuesday afternoon, hospital doctors and even
Ayres’ own defense attorney took the stand to
offer their opinions on his alleged Alzheimer’s
related dementia, memory loss and cognitive
deficiencies. Those called by the defense said
they were concerned with the hospital’s offi-
cial report by staff psychologist Dr. John
McIlnay while doctors testifying for the pros-
ecution painted Ayres as overly verbal about
his perceived condition while demonstrating
more competent abilities.

A 7-Eleven set to open in a few weeks in a
distinctly residential San Mateo neighborhood
received a chilly reception from the city’s
Planning Commission last night, which voted
unanimously to recommend termination of a
legal non-conforming use of the property and
revert it back to residential.
The commission said in unison that a 7-
Eleven where the former Stangelini’s Italian
Deli & Hilltop Market once stood at 501 N. San
Mateo Drive will have a negative effect on prop-
erty values in the San Mateo Heights neighbor-
hood and be a detriment to the public health,
safety and general welfare of the neighborhood.
The City Council will next take up the issue
at its Nov. 15 meeting, which has final say on
whether to terminate the legal non-conforming
use for a market and revert the property back to
residential as it is currently zoned for.
Stangelini’s operated on the site for more than
70 years but when it closed about two years and
the site stood vacant for so long the city made a
determination that the zoning for the property
be reverted back to residential.
The property owners then sought a zoning
code amendment to keep the legal non-con-
forming use back in February and a neighbor-
hood meeting was held so neighbors could hear
what the proposed uses for the property might
A short-time after, however, the city’s legal
counsel determined that the owners of the prop-
erty had no intent to abandon the property as a
market, even though the use had discontinued,
and the public outreach process ended abruptly
and building permits from the city were issued
shortly after.
Signs went up on the building saying a 7-
Eleven would open soon and about 100 resi-
dents from the area showed up to the Planning
Commission meeting last night, holding signs
that read “Do the right thing,” to complain about
the process and the intensification of use from
the former market to a 7-Eleven.
All four commissioners in attendance, Chris
Massey, Rick Bonilla, Kelly Moran and Josh
Hugg, were against a 7-Eleven popping up in
the residential area saying it would be too bur-
densome. Commissioner Dianne Whitaker was
not in attendance.
Moran even made a motion to recommend to
the council to oppose the transfer of the liquor
license that was held by Stangelini’s.
The former deli was open from 9 a.m. to 6
p.m. but 7-Eleven proposes to be open from 5
a.m. to 2 a.m. every day, taking deliveries at
varying hours.
Deputy Mayor David Lim requested the pub-
lic hearing to consider terminating the legal
non-conforming use after hearing from many in
the area about how disruptive a 7-Eleven will be
in the area.
If the City Council does vote to terminate the
use it must still allow a market in the space for
at least five years but city staff said it would take
at least 14 years for the new owners to recoup
their investment.
“No matter what decision is made here there
will be litigation,” Moran said.

anticipates possibly one more meeting after that one before
voting on certification of the final EIR.
The proposed development concerns a 10.53-acre strip of
land within the existing Caltrain station and running parallel
to the railroad corridor. The proposal by Legacy, the developer,
envisions eight four-story buildings with 281 housing units
among a mix of 407,298 square feet of residential, 23,797
square feet of office space and 14,326 square feet of retail
space. The project would also include 667 parking spaces and

State nixes deal to divert 49ers stadium funds
The state of California has vetoed a $30 million deal between
the San Francisco 49ers and Santa Clara County officials that
would have allowed some of the money voters earmarked for a
new stadium to be diverted to local schools.
The California Department of Finance this month rejected a
settlement under which about $30 million in redevelopment
funds would have been split between the football stadium and
the Santa Clara Unified School District.
The finance department says the agreement is invalid because
it was struck long after the state Legislature and Gov. Jerry
Brown approved a law dismantling the community agencies
that oversaw property tax revenues for redevelopment projects.

East Coast airports remain closed,
114 flights out of SFO canceled
As post-tropical cyclone Sandy battered
much of the East Coast with strong winds,
flooding and even blizzards yesterday morning,
many airports remained shut down and dozens
of flights were canceled at Bay Area airports.
Mid-morning, 114 flights had been canceled
at San Francisco International Airport, a duty
manager said.
According to the Federal Aviation
Administration, seven airports remain shut
down because of the storm, including John F.
Kennedy International Airport, Newark
International Airport and La Guardia Airport.
There is no estimated time when the airports
will reopen.
SFO has also seen cancellations of flights
going to and from Boston, Baltimore, both
Washington, D.C. airports and Philadelphia,
airport duty manager Shannon Wilson said.
Oakland International Airport has a small
number of flights that go in and out of JFK that
have been affected, an airport official said.
Mineta San Jose International Airport has
only one flight canceled Tuesday into JFK,
spokeswoman Rosemary Barnes said.
Giants fans urged to take public
transit to World Series victory parade
Excitement is building for today’s World

to accommodate the droves of fans expected to
descend on the city.
The parade begins at 11 a.m. at Market and
Steuart streets and will proceed down Market
Street, making a right at McAllister Street and
ending at City Hall.
A celebration will follow in Civic Center
San Francisco Municipal Railway is adding
six light-rail trains to supplement service, Muni
spokesman Paul Rose said. The extra service
will begin at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
Caltrain, which carries about 20,000 com-
muters on an average weekday, is also adding
service, as is BART. BART officials said the
agency will be using every available train.
Anyone planning to ride BART is encour-
aged to buy a roundtrip ticket — or load up
Clipper Cards — today rather than waiting
until Wednesday morning when there will be
long lines at ticket machines.
Transit agencies are warning that there might
not be much parking at BART and Caltrain sta-
Rose said any riders coming into the city
should expect delays. Commuters are advised
to factor in extra time for their trips to work.
Both Market and Mission streets will be
closed from 9:30 a.m. to about 5 p.m. for
parade and celebration-related activities, Rose
said. Muni buses will be allowed on Mission
Street during the closures, he said.

pulled up to the center at 1123 Industrial Road
in a newer model Ford Mustang with paper
plates. They left the engine running and entered
the store wearing the masks and hooded sweat
shirts. They smashed the glass tops of the jew-
elry cases, grabbed jewelry and fled in the
Mustang. The men were last seen driving south
on Highway 101 from Brittan Avenue, accord-
ing to the San Carlos Bureau of the San Mateo
County Sheriff’s Office.
The men were described as white, in their
20s, tall with thin builds. The Mustang was
described as gray, with two black racing stripes
down its center, according to police.

asked to contact Detective Jonathan Sebring at
363-4057 or by email at

Man who torched Burning
Man dies in train accident
A San Francisco man who was once convict-
ed for illegally torching the Burning Man effi-
gy has died after jumping in front of a Bay Area
Rapid Transit train.
The Medical Examiner’s office said Tuesday
that 42-year-old Paul Addis was found under-
neath a Daly-City bound train at the
Embarcadero station Saturday night.
BART officials said train service was dis-
rupted for nearly four hours.
Addis was known as a performance artist
who spent two years in a Nevada prison for ille-
gally torching the 40-foot signature effigy at the
counterculture Burning Man festival in 2007.
The next year Addis pleaded guilty to two
misdemeanor counts related to an alleged arson
attempt at San Francisco’s historic Grace
Cathedral in 2007.
He was sentenced to three years of probation
in that incident.

Ralston Avenue snarled by two crashes
A pair of separate, but related traffic collisions — including
one involving an ambulance responding to the other incident
— snarled the morning commute traffic on Ralston Avenue in
Belmont yesterday, according to police.
The first, a collision between a car and a bicyclist, was at
approximately 8:25 a.m. on the 1900 block of Ralston
Avenue. The bicyclist, a 62-year-old Belmont woman, was
riding east on Ralston Avenue, when she collided with a
Toyota sedan that was turning into the Carlmont Shopping
Center, from west Ralston Avenue. The bicyclist sustained
serious, non life-threatening injuries and was transported to a
hospital. The driver of the Toyota, a 42-year-old Belmont
woman, was not injured, according to police.
As Belmont paramedics were treating the bicyclist, the
ambulance en route to the scene was involved in a collision on
Ralston Avenue at Avon Street. The ambulance was heading
west on Ralston Avenue with its lights on and siren sounding
when a Nissan sedan, driven by a 64-year-old Belmont
woman, pulled out onto Ralston Avenue from Avon Street and
collided with the ambulance, according to police.
As a result of the second collision, another ambulance was
dispatched to the original incident involving the bicyclist.
Belmont fire and a third ambulance were sent to check on the
driver of the Nissan, who was examined at the scene and
released. The medics in the ambulance involved in the colli-
sion were not injured, according to police.
Ralston Avenue between Notre Dame Avenue and Alameda
de las Pulgas was closed for approximately 90 minutes and
was reopened to all traffic at approximately 10 a.m., accord-
ing to police.
Belmont police are investigating the collision involving the
bicyclist. There is no bicycle lane in the area of Ralston
Avenue where the collision occurred. The collision involving
the ambulance is being investigated by the California
Highway Patrol, at the request of the Belmont Police
Department. The CHP was called in as all the on-duty
Belmont units were committed to the first collision investiga-
tion, according to police.
Man tries to smuggle 100
cocaine pellets in his intestines
An American citizen who had apparently swallowed 100
cocaine-filled pellets in a smuggling attempt was arrested at
San Francisco International Airport last week as he was on his
way to board a flight to Japan, a U.S. Customs and Border
Protection spokesman said.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers interviewed
the passenger, Emmanuel Amankwa, 55, extensively at the
airport on Wednesday before it was determined that he was
attempting to smuggle the drugs in his intestines, according to
the agency.
He was transported to a nearby hospital to be monitored by
medical staff until Thursday, when he had passed all 100
cocaine pellets, agency spokesman Officer Frank Falcon said.
The pellets weighed more than 2.5 pounds.
Amankwa was turned over to Homeland Security
Investigations for further action, according to Falcon.
Man arrested after police pursuit, crash
A 19-year-old Belmont man is in custody after crashing his
car at the corner of 20th Avenue and El Camino Real in San
Mateo yesterday afternoon, according to police.
At approximately 2:21 p.m., the man crashed his car after
police tried to stop him for running a red light, according to
The man, who police did not identify, was arrested for DUI
and other charges, according to police.

compensation for general damages,

new educational costs. A claim was
made against the district earlier this year.
“We cannot comment on the particu-
lars of any case under litigation, but we
can say that the board denied the initial
claim filed by this family. We don’t tol-
erate racial discrimination in the
Redwood City School District, and we
always take action if discrimination is
proven,” district spokeswoman Naomi
Hunter wrote in an email response
In a 12-page lawsuit, the family
alleges the black student was first
harassed in January when a school
employee asked the boy to pick up trash
on the lunchroom floor. The boy
responded that he hadn’t made the mess
and was not a slave, according to the
lawsuit. As a result, the boy was not
allowed to play at recess and had to go to
the office to write an incident report.
The following day, a staff member
approached the boy during lunch and
loudly said he and the other students
would be barred from going to recess
because the boy had not picked up the
trash the day before, according to the
lawsuit. The boy again said he wasn’t the
school slave. The employee responded,
“You are my slave. This isn’t a free
country,” according to the lawsuit. The
boy reported the incident to the office.
Later that day, the boy was escorted out
of his class to the principal’s office to
hear an apology from the employee. The
child requested not to hear the apology
but was told to stay, according to the
The original claim submitted to the
district in April said harassment has con-
tinued by another teacher. Parents were
never contacted by the school to discuss
the incidents, according to the lawsuit.
As a result of the described actions,
the lawsuit said the boy “has suffered
mental injury, including but not limited
to fear, shock, humiliation and extreme
emotional distress. As a further result of
the actions of defendants, [he] began
wetting the bed, having nightmares and
his attitude toward anyone of authority,
including his parents, has been adverse-
ly affected.”
The family has sought medical help
from physicians, psychologists and other
health care professionals. In addition,
the boy has suffered educational set-
backs requiring tutoring and other aca-
demic help, according to the lawsuit. As
a result of the school situation, the boy’s
brother was placed in a private school.

Creek, calls for 411 multi-family housing
units in buildings between three and five
stories, a community pool and approxi-
mately 263 slips in a private marina. All
existing commercial operations at the
marina will cease and any future boat
mooring limited to apartment tenants.
The crowd opposing the proposal last
night ranged from those who opposed
development of any kind and worried
about the impact on affordable housing in
the area to those who favored some devel-
opment — just not this development.
Tenant Murray Weber asked that the
marina and restaurant remain untouched.
Tim Ron said this specific plan would
cause a “significant loss of cultural and
civil potential for the area.” Buckley
Stone asked for more discussion.
“Let’s take our time. Let’s do this
right,” Stone said.
Tuesday’s public hearing was a contin-
uation of a Planning Commission meet-
ing paused two weeks ago because of the
late hour. A handful of speakers who
could not attend Tuesday’s hearing were
allowed to address the panel at that meet-
ing but the majority returned last night,
some with signs and others draped in yel-
low caution tape to symbolize vacant
Not every speaker, however, leaned
toward stopping or even slowing the proj-
ect. Some addressed not the development
itself but the divisiveness and perceived
misinformation surrounding the process.
Mike Castra said he was approached at
PortFest and asked to sign a petition
opposing the plan.
“I was told an out-of-town developer
was going to kick 500 people out of their
homes, fill in the Bay and build massive
homes on the site,” Castra said.
At the earlier meeting, developer Paul
Powers highlighted plans for the develop-
ment such as a kayak launch and bocce
ball courts although those must still
receive state approval. Powers also point-
ed out public landscaping and $1.6 mil-
lion in impact fees to schools as benefits
to Redwood City if the project goes for-
But Tuesday night, several speakers
asked the commission not to be swayed
by short-term financial gain and look
Countering the argument, Pete
Uccelli’s niece, Susan, reiterated that
development was always his intention
and Paul Powers was his hand-picked
choice before his September 2005
Since June 2002, Paula Uccelli has
required all live-aboard leases to include
language acknowledging the possibility
of relocation. All leases the past 12 years
have also been month-to month because
of the sale potential. Uccelli attorney Ted
Hannig, previously told the Planning
Commission that as of that point 52 live-
aboard tenants, or 41 percent, had already
left voluntarily. Tenants can stay through
the end of the year.
In addition to the city’s approval,
Uccelli will probably need permission
from the California State Lands
Commission and the Bay Conservation
and Development Commission.

with Daylight
By Ted Anthony
PITTSBURGH — The most dev-
astating storm in decades to hit the
country’s most densely populated
region upended man and nature as it
rolled back the clock on 21st-century
lives, cutting off modern communica-
tion and leaving millions without
power Tuesday as thousands who
fled their water-menaced homes
wondered when — if — life would
return to normal.
A weakening Sandy, the hurricane
turned fearsome superstorm, killed at
least 50 people, many hit by falling
trees, and still wasn’t finished. It
inched inland across Pennsylvania,
ready to bank toward western New
York to dump more of its water and
likely cause more havoc Tuesday
night. Behind it: a dazed, inundated
New York City, a waterlogged
Atlantic Coast and a moonscape of
disarray and debris — from
unmoored shore-town boardwalks to
submerged mass-transit systems to
delicate presidential politics.
“Nature,” said New York City
Mayor Michael Bloomberg, assessing
the damage to his city, “is an awful lot
more powerful than we are.”
More than 8.2 million households
were without power in 17 states as far
west as Michigan. Nearly 2 million
of those were in New York, where
large swaths of lower Manhattan lost
electricity and entire streets ended up
under water — as did seven subway
tunnels between Manhattan and
Brooklyn at one point, the
Metropolitan Transportation
Authority said.
The New York Stock Exchange
was closed for a second day from
weather, the first time that has hap-
pened since a blizzard in 1888. The
city’s subway system, the lifeblood
of more than 5 million residents, was
damaged like never before and
closed indefinitely, and Consolidated
Edison said electricity in and around
New York could take a week to
Millions without power in Sandy’s wake
By Christopher S. Rugaber
and Martin Crutsinger
WASHINGTON — Superstorm
Sandy will end up causing about
$20 billion in property damages
and $10 billion to $30 billion more
in lost business, according to IHS
Global Insight, a forecasting firm.
In the long run, the devastation
the storm inflicted on New York
City and other parts of the
Northeast will barely nick the U.S.
economy. That’s the view of econ-
omists who say a slightly slower
economy in coming weeks will
likely be matched by reconstruc-
tion and repairs that will contribute
to growth over time.
The short-term blow to the
economy, though, could subtract
about 0.6 percentage point from
U.S. economic growth in the
October-December quarter, IHS
says. Retailers, airlines and
home construction firms will
likely lose some business.
The storm cut power to more
than 8 million homes, shut down 70
percent of East Coast oil refineries
and inflicted worse-than-expected
damage in the New York metro
area. That area produces about 10
percent of U.S. economic output.
New York City was all but closed
off by car, train and air. The super-
storm overflowed the city’s water-
front, flooded the financial district
and subway tunnels and cut power
to hundreds of thousands. Power is
expected to be fully restored in
Manhattan and Brooklyn within
four days.
The New York Stock Exchange
will reopen for regular trading
Wednesday after being shut down
for two days. There’s no evidence
that the shutdown had any effect on
the financial system or the econo-
my. But Jim Paulsen, chief strate-
gist at Wells Capital Management,
said further delays might have rat-
tled consumers and dampened their
Storm’s cost may hit $50B
By Connie Cass
WASHINGTON — Suddenly,
after drifting through months of
confusing finger-pointing and iffy
economic theory, the presidential
candidates are getting walloped by
an all-too-tangible October surprise.
Superstorm Sandy is a real-world,
gut-level test.
The force of nature threw cold
water on the campaign bickering
just as President Barack Obama and
Republican nominee Mitt Romney
were charging into a final week of
man-made rancor.
“It’s sort of like Mother Nature is
intervening and calling a timeout,”
said historian and presidential biog-
rapher Douglas Brinkley.
Obama can’t afford to be caught
taking his eyes off an unfolding cri-
sis. Romney
needs to avoid
appearing cal-
lous about the
lives lost and
homes flooded
while campaign-
ing; he decided
to go on with
events but
dialed down the
politics Tuesday. Seven years after
Hurricane Katrina, neither candi-
date wants to talk about the political
implications of the giant storm that
lurched up the East Coast and left
millions without power.
But their campaigns have to think
about it. All presidential teams
sweat about the potential for an
October surprise — a late-in-the
race event or disclosure that can
turn the race upside down.
Nature slams campaigns into real world
By Julie Pace
WASHINGTON — Seeking to
project command in a crisis,
President Barack Obama told
storm-stricken residents along the
East Coast that “America is with
you” but warned that the disaster
“is not yet over.”
As the countdown to Election
Day reached the one week mark,
Obama immersed himself Tuesday
in his official duties. He convened
conference calls with state and
local officials, held briefings in the
White House
Situation Room
and dropped by
Red Cross
headquarters in
“My instruc-
tions to the fed-
eral agencies
has been, ‘Do
not figure out
why we can’t
do something; I want you to figure
out how we do something,”’
Obama said. “There’s no excuse
for inaction at this point.”
President warns that
storm ‘is not yet over’
California sends
aid to storm-struck East
LOS ANGELES — California is
sending help to storm-ravaged East
Coast areas.
Gov. Jerry Brown says the
California National Guard on
Monday flew airplanes, helicopters
and two specialized rescue teams to
North Carolina. Last weekend, 10
search-and-rescue experts from fire
departments up and down the state
were sent to Virginia and other areas.
Brown says more than 80 people
trained in medical aid and emer-
gency response were being sent.
Pacific Gas & Electric says it’s
sending more than 150 workers to
help restore power in New York, and
Southern California Edison is send-
ing 170 employees and contractors
to assist New York’s Consolidated
Edison Co. SoCal Edison vehicles
and equipment will travel cross-
country in a convoy.

MIAMI — With a week to go until Election
Day, the nasty campaign tactics are coming
People in Florida, Virginia and Indiana
have gotten calls falsely telling them they can
vote early by phone and don’t need to go to a
polling place. In suburban Broward County,
Fla., a handful of elderly voters who request-
ed absentee ballots say they were visited by
unknown people claiming to be authorized to
collect the ballots.
And there’s a mysterious DVD popping up
in mailboxes that purports to be a documen-
tary raising questions about the true identity
of President Barack Obama’s father.
It’s one more indication of just how close
this presidential election is. Voting rights
advocates say reports of political deception
and underhandedness are on the rise.
“Unfortunately it seems like the shadowy
individuals that want to prevent people from
voting are doing things earlier,” said Eric
Marshall, legal mobilization manager at the
Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under
Law. The organization is part of a coalition
called Election Protection that is monitoring
voting access and rights nationwide, includ-
ing a toll-free hotline set up to take com-
“Each American’s vote matters. It’s impor-
tant to them and it’s important to the commu-
nity,” Marshall said.
Indiana’s secretary of state launched an
investigation of the phony voting instructions
being phoned to homes in that state, and
Virginia officials issued a warning to voters
there asking them to report any such calls.
In the Broward County, Fla., case, elderly
voters “were told, ‘I’m an official and I’m
here to pick up your absentee ballot,”’ said
Alma Gonzalez, a senior Florida Democratic
Party official working on voter protection
efforts. “There is no official who picks up
your ballot.”
In addition to those cases, garish billboards
warning that voter fraud is a crime punishable
by jail time and fines were put up in minority
neighborhoods in Ohio and Wisconsin. They
were recently taken down amid complaints
they were aimed at intimidating African-
American and Latino voters. The people
behind the billboards have not come forward.
“It’s hard to believe that these were just
public service announcements,” Marshall
said. “Those neighborhoods were specifically
“It doesn’t pass the smell test.”
Independent Florida voter Jane Bowman
smelled something bad, too, when she recent-
ly discovered a DVD in her mailbox ques-
tioning the identity of Obama’s father.
“I think it’s just a dirty trick. It just aston-
ished me,” said Bowman, a Jacksonville resi-
dent who says she plans to vote for Obama as
she did four years ago. “I think they’re doing
everything they can to win Florida. It’s a sorry
The DVD’s director, who says he has
mailed some 7 million copies to homes in
swing states, says that he is unaffiliated with
political campaigns or their supporters and
that the film reflects his own painstaking
research into Obama’s family background.
Three ex-governors
oppose state death-penalty repeal
Three former California governors joined
prosecutors and families of murder victims
Tuesday to urge voters to reject a ballot pro-
posal next week that would abolish the state’s
death penalty.
Appearing at downtown Los Angeles hotel,
Democrat Gray Davis and Republicans Pete
Wilson and George Deukmejian warned that
Proposition 34 would erase history, punish
victims’ relatives and potentially free impris-
oned killers.
There are more than 700 inmates on
California’s death row, though no executions
have occurred since 2006 because of pending
The proposal “is a horrible injustice. ...
These people had their day in court,” Davis
said. “Do not let the bad guys on death row
Wilson called the proposition “a travesty ...
re-opening heartbreak.”
Wealthy donors
give $350M to initiatives
An astonishing $350 million has been raised
so far to sway voters on 11 California ballot ini-
tiatives. While much of the money has come
from labor and business groups, a significant
share has come from the ultra-wealthy.
Californians can thank a handful of billionaires
and millionaires for jamming airwaves and
mailboxes with a barrage of advertising.
The causes range from Gov. Jerry Brown’s
Proposition 30 tax increase to a labeling
requirement for genetically modified food.
Proponents and opponents of Proposition 32,
which seeks to undercut labor’s clout, will like-
ly end up spending more than $120 million.
The rich who are pouring money into cam-
paigns include a brother and sister with diver-
gent political views and an insurance tycoon
who is asking Californians to give insurance
companies more leeway to set rates.

Voting rights
Proponents of Measure B on the
November ballot are asking voters to
change the county charter and with that
to give up voting rights. Simply stated,
you are being asked to give up your
right to vote for four of the five San
Mateo County supervisors who are now
elected countywide. If Measure B pass-
es, you will only be able to vote for the
district supervisor. Today, we have the
best of both worlds in that supervisors
must reside in and run from a district,
but be accountable to the entire elec-
torate. We need only to look at the
experience with district elections in San
Francisco and San Jose where parochial
interests dominate the politics of deci-
sion making. Today, voters and taxpay-
ers in San Mateo County have equal
access to all five supervisors — not just
their district supervisor.
Proponents of Measure B would like
voters to believe that having district-
only elections will create more compet-
itive races. The fact of the matter is that
with safe seats, supervisors in counties
with district elections run virtually
unopposed (as is the case with most

County voters have twice rejected

As I see it, the biggest benefit will be
to bring the public closer to at least one
member of the board. Many people in
our county don’t know who their board
members are or what they do. That puts
them at a disadvantage in terms of
deciding whether or not they should be
elected or re-elected. Because our
county is so big, candidates for the
board are spread thin as they campaign
up and down the county. That does a
disservice to the voters of the district
that they’re elected to represent.
One argument I’ve heard against
making this change is that the current
system allows us to hold all supervisors
accountable, not just one. The reality,
however, is that the public often only
has one choice on the ballot. Once an
incumbent, or even a popular chal-
lenger, starts rolling up endorsements
and money, they end up going unchal-
lenged. Additionally, the fact that no
incumbent has lost a seat in more than
30 years bears that out.
My friends in Santa Clara County
have told me that they are very happy
with their system of electing supervi-
sors by district. They feel connected to
their supervisors and feel that person
really understands the issues of the dis-
trict. I think it’s time for San Mateo
County to give that a try as well.

No ghosts or goblins
e may have democracy or we may have great
wealth concentration in the hands of a few,
but we can’t have both.” — Robert Reich.
Please don’t try to scare me today. Things are already very
scary. What is most frightening is that it’s possible that Mitt
Romney will be elected president. Add a lot of other things
that are already very scary and that a Republican win would
exacerbate greatly. I made a
list of my own frightening
future trends and then asked
various friends and relatives
(mostly liberal types): “What
is it that you find most scary
about the direction our coun-
try is going?” Their answers
1). The continuing war that
is killing so many of our
young people in our military
and draining the treasury. Add
increasing involvement in the
Middle East.
2). The great amount of cor-
porate influence (aided and abetted by the super PACs) that is
taking many of our freedoms away from us.
3). That the Supreme Court will be loaded with more con-
servatives with ramifications for generations to come.
4). The ongoing congressional stalemates that prevent
progress on important issues.
5). The rich getting richer and the poor and middle class
losing out because those in the top 1 percent are unwilling to
part with a few more dollars.
6). The way education is suffering from lack of funding
and the high fees for college that keep young people in debt
for so long.
7). The increasing chemical pollution and global warming
that are contributing to the declining health of our children
and the planet.
8). Having two wonderful grandsons and the fact that they
will be growing up in this mess.
9). The huge and increasing national debt, the disappearing
safety net for the less fortunate in society and the fact that we
will continue to have the “best government money can buy.”
10). The possibility that women’s rights (especially abor-
tion rights) will evaporate.
11). That our country is moving toward a state where our
separation of church and state is not acknowledged.
12). That we are fostering a culture of non-thinkers, non-
questioners, a society of people who don’t question and
explore anything, only do what is necessary to “move up”
or “fit in” or make a buck” or “pass the class.” (This from a
university professor).
13). That our cultural values will continue to disintegrate,
resulting in increased greed and disrespect for others.
Joseph E. Stiglitz, author of “The Price of Inequality”
would agree. He writes: “much of what has gone on can
only be described by the words ‘moral deprivation.’
Something wrong happened to the moral compass of so
many people working in the financial sector and elsewhere.
When the norms of society change in a way that so many
have lost their moral compass, it says something significant
about the society.”
“From his embrace of the radical right wing, to subse-
quent portrayals of himself as a moderate champion of the
middle class, Romney has raised the most frequently asked
question of the campaign, ‘who is this guy, really, and what
in the world does he truly believe?’” — Salt Lake City
Tribune, Oct. 22. Could it be that he has been so pro-
grammed by his father, the church and political advisors
that he has no thoughts of his own? Is he putting on the
moderate act now, but if elected will he then take directions
from Tea Party leaders? Does this exemplar of the Mormon
religion have no integrity?
Should Mitt Romney become president, the concerns
expressed by my family and friends will be increased. Our
democracy will fall apart more quickly than if President
Obama is re-elected even though his efforts would, no
doubt, continue to be blocked by the recalcitrant
Republicans. They will resist, for instance, any proposal to
raise taxes to fund important and necessary programs that
keep education, health care, infrastructure repair, social
programs, etc. at an adequate level.
Add Robert Reich to the frightened. In his new book,
“Beyond Outrage,” he writes: “I have never been as con-
cerned as I am now about the future of our democracy, the
corrupting effects of big money in our politics, the striden-
cy and demagoguery of the regressive right, and the accu-
mulation of wealth and power at the very top. We are per-
ilously close to losing an economy and a democracy that are
meant to work for everyone and to replacing them with an
economy and a government that will exist mainly for a few
wealthy and powerful people.”

NEW YORK — The New York Stock
Exchange will reopen for regular trading
today after being shut down for two days
because of Hurricane Sandy.
The exchange said in a statement
Tuesday that its building and trading
floor are fully operational and that nor-
mal trading will resume at the usual
starting time of 9:30 a.m.
There had been erroneous reports
Monday that the exchange floor had
flooded. Exchange spokesman Ray
Pellecchia said the exchange’s building
did not have any flooding or damage.
Tuesday marks the first time since
1888 that the NYSE remained closed for
two consecutive days because of weath-
er. The earlier shutdown was caused by a
massive snow storm.
Sections of Manhattan were inundated
with water Tuesday and power was shut
off to millions of people and businesses
up and down the East Coast.
Dozens of companies have postponed
earnings reports this week because of the
storm, but Ford Motor Co. did release
results for the third quarter that topped
Wall Street expectations.
Ford’s revenue fell 3 percent to $32.1
billion because of the economic crisis in
Europe and falling sales in South
America. The company exceeded Wall
Street’s revenue forecast of $31.5 billion
largely because of North America, where
revenue jumped 8 percent.
European stock markets rose broadly
Tuesday after falling the day before.
Trading was subdued in the wake of the
storm. Britain’s FTSE 100 index rose 0.9
percent, Germany’s DAX rose 1.1 per-
cent and the CAC-40 in France was 1.5
percent higher.
Crude oil rose 14 cents to settle at
$85.68 in electronic trading on the New
York Mercantile Exchange.
U.S. bond trading was closed Tuesday.
Electronic trading for U.S. stock index
futures was open, but trading volume
was very light and the price moves were
minuscule. As of the regular close of
trading at 9:15 a.m., Dow Jones industri-
al average futures rose 8 points to
13,062. S&P 500 futures added 3.50
points to 1,411.10. Nasdaq futures
slipped 3.75 points to 2,655.25.
On Monday, when regular U.S. stock
trading was also closed, stock index
futures fell slightly.

LOS ANGELES — A decade after
George Lucas said “Star Wars” was fin-
ished on the big screen, a new trilogy is
destined for theaters as The Walt Disney
Co. announced Tuesday that it was buy-
ing Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion.
The seventh movie, with a working title
of “Episode 7,” is set for release in 2015.
Episodes 8 and 9 will follow. The new
trilogy will carry the story of Luke
Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia
beyond “Return of the Jedi,” the third film
released and the sixth in the saga. After
that, Disney plans a new “Star Wars”
movie every two or three years. Lucas
will serve as creative consultant in the
new movies.
“For the past 35 years, one of my great-
est pleasures has been to see Star Wars
passed from one generation to the next,”
said Lucas, chairman and CEO of
Lucasfilm Ltd. “It’s now time for me to
pass Star Wars on to a new generation of
filmmakers. I’ve always believed that Star
Wars could live beyond me, and I thought
it was important to set up the transition
during my lifetime.”
Disney CEO Bob Iger said Lucusfilm
had already developed an extensive story
line on the next trilogy, and Episode 7
was now in early-stage development.
The Walt Disney Co. announced the
blockbuster agreement to buy Lucasfilm
in cash and stock Tuesday. The deal
includes Lucasfilm’s prized high-tech
production companies, Industrial Light &
Magic and Skywalker Sound, as well as
rights to the “Indiana Jones” franchise.
Lucas was hailed as a cinematic vision-
ary when the original “Star Wars” came
out in 1977. But he had become an object
of often-vicious ridicule by the time he
released 3-D versions of all six films in
the Star Wars franchise earlier this year.
Die-hard Star War fans had been vilify-
ing Lucas for years, convinced that he
had become a commercial sell-out and
had compounded his sins by desecrating
the heroic tale that he originally sought to
tell. They railed against him for adding
grating characters such as Jar Jar Binks in
the second trilogy and attacked him for
tinkering with the original trilogy, too.
Any revision — from little things like
making the Ewoks blink or bigger alter-
ations like making a green-skinned alien
named Greedo take the first shot at Han
Solo in a famous bar scene — were treat-
ed as blasphemy.
The criticism grated on Lucas, who
vowed never to make another Star Wars
movie during an interview with The New
York Times earlier this year.
Disney to make new ‘Star
Wars’ films, buy Lucas Ltd.
UBS slashes business in bid
By John Heilprin
GENEVA — Scarred by scandals and losses, Swiss bank
UBS unveiled Tuesday a plan to overhaul its global operations
that will see it cut thousands of jobs as it drops risky trading
activities and restructures its investment banking unit.
Switzerland’s biggest bank has for years been trying to
reshape its business and clean up its image as it tries to recov-
er from a damaging U.S. tax evasion dispute, a scandal over
unauthorized trades and a slew of bad investments.
Tuesday’s plan represented a sudden acceleration in this
turnaround effort.
UBS AG will cut 10,000 jobs, on top of 3,500 shed last year,
as it drops out of trading in fixed income — which includes
bonds and currencies — and rejiggers its investment banking.
It will cut 3,000 of those jobs at its U.S. operations along
Interstate 95 in Stamford, Conn., near New York City. Another
4,500 will be axed in London, with the remaining 2,500 in
State warns mobile
app makers on consumer privacy
SACRAMENTO — California’s attorney general is warning
dozens of mobile software companies that they are not com-
plying with state consumer privacy laws.
Kamala Harris’s office said Tuesday that the attorney gener-
al began sending letters this week to developers of up to 100
mobile applications.
The companies are being given 30 days to “conspicuously
post” a privacy policy within their applications that let users
know what kind of personally identifiable information is being
collected and how that data will be used.
Harris says the letters are the first step in taking legal action
to enforce the California Online Privacy Protection Act. That
law requires online service providers to warn customers when
they collect personal information.

<< Giants shut out in Gold Glove department, page 13
• 49ers on a nice little roll, page 12
Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012
By Julio Lara
Joseph Chan’s goal on Tuesday
afternoon was to make history.
While others keep signed base-
balls in their trophy cases at home,
the San Mateo resident who works
with the San Francisco 49ers want-
ed to become the first person to have
a signed Doritos Locos Taco by a
World Series Champion.
And really, how many baseball
fans can claim that?
So, dressed in his red jacket and
donning his lucky San Francisco
Giants baseball cap, Chan got to the
Taco Bell off of El Camino Real in
Redwood City and waited for
Giants centerfielder Angel Pagan to
arrive at 2:30 p.m.
Chan got to the door at 9 a.m.
“Pagan,” he said. “That’s why I
came out here for.”
Chan wasn’t alone. An estimated
1,100 Giants/Taco Bell fans made
their way to the eatery Tuesday
afternoon to catch a glimpse of the
ball player who, with a swipe of sec-
ond base in Game 2 of the 2012
World Series, set off a taco frenzy.
Pagan’s steal was the first of the
series and thus, won a free Doritos
Locos Taco for every single person
in the U.S.
The giveaway is nice. But having
Pagan, the newly crowned world
champion in the house to serve
tacos and sign autographs in
Redwood City, made it so much
“It’s pretty crazy,” said Redwood
City resident Sean Stangl. “We’ve
been here since 9:30 this morning.
Hopefully, people have the mentali-
ty of having a a good time and real-
ize why we’re here.”
Stangl has been a fan of the
Giants since he was 5-years old.
And just like 2010 when San
Francisco won its first world title,
Stangl is enjoying every bite of this
“This year is a little different
given the adversity the team had to
go through,” he said. “It feels good.
I’m just as excited. Maybe even
more so because it’s two out of three
[years]. In baseball, you win two out
of three World Series, you’re talking
about a real dynasty. It’s great to see
what will happen next.”
Pagan arrived at 2:30 p.m. to a
crowd that wrapped around the
newly renovated Taco Bell, down
Buckingham Street, up El Camino
Real and into the A-Crane
Locksmith business next door.
Pretty soon, Redwood City police,
along with the help from the sher-
iff’s department and the California
Highway Patrol, had to close off
traffic through Buckingham and
around Blenheim Street as well.
Pagan, free tacos a big hit
The lure of free tacos and a chance
to see Giants centerfielder Angel
Pagan brought thousands of fans
to Taco Bell inRedwood City.

Despite being separated by only one game
in the West Catholic Athletic League stand-
ings, the Serra water polo team proved it has
opened a wide chasm between itself and
Valley Christian since the teams first met.
After Serra posted an 8-5 win over the
Warriors during the regular season, the fourth-
seeded Padres pounded fifth-seeded Valley
Christian 11-5 in the quarterfinals of the
WCAL tournament Tuesday afternoon.
“Valley Christian has improved,” said Serra
coach Bob Greene. “But so have we. We’ve
looked good for a few weeks.
“October is the month (to be playing your
best). You have to win league games (during
October) and get ready for WCALs (and
Serra 2-meter man Anthony Buljan scored
two of his team-high four goals in staking the
Padres to a 2-0 lead after the first period. From
there, the Padres poured it on, both offensive-
ly and defensively. Serra outscored the
Warriors 4-0 in the second period and led 6-0
at halftime. Joe Kmak scored all three of his
goals in the second period, scoring all three
within two minutes of each other. His first
came on a man-advantage and his final two
came on fast breaks. Buljan picked up his
third goal of the half with 2:26 left.
More importantly, the Padres’ defense was
suffocating. They held Valley Christian to just
three shots on the cage, all of which were
saved by goaltender Steven Olujic, who fin-
ished the match with 13. The Padres also
came up with four steals in the frame, which
was a sign of things to come. In the second
half, Serra came away with eight more steals.
The Padres got a pair of goals from Kevin
Villar in the third period as they opened up an
8-0 lead. The Warriors averted the shutout on
the first of three Michael Hoefling goals with
1:32 to play in the third. In the final period,

Serra basketball standout Henry
Caruso and Aragon’s defensive end
David Manoa have both orally commit-
ted to scholarship offers from Princeton
and University of Hawaii, respectively.
Caruso’s recruiting was typical,
while Manoa’s was less so. Caruso, a
forward who can also play on the
perimeter for the Padres, had been pur-
sued by a number of schools, mostly
lower Division I programs before
Princeton expressed interest in him last
spring and followed him throughout the
summer. Caruso attended the Elite
Camp at Princeton in June and Tigers
coach Mitch Henderson offered a
scholarship a couple weeks ago.
“The head coach saw me play at the
S.I.-Serra game last year,” Caruso said.
“Ever since then, I’ve been talking to
them. They were following me all sum-
mer. … I like the coaches a lot and I like
the players, they all seem like good
Caruso had to wait before making the
announcement, to make sure he quali-
fied academically, but found out this
week everything checked out and he
was good to go.
“The whole goal all along was to find
a good fit, with the school and the pro-
gram. I’m happy I got this out of the
way now. I can now fully focus on the
Serra season and not have to worry
about what the future holds (as far as
the recruiting process),” Caruso said.

season with Serra this year and has
been one of the best players on the

The dust has settled, the seven conference
games played and with the Coast Conference
tournament set to begin Friday, the College of
San Mateo women’s water polo team finds
itself exactly where it wanted to be — in con-
trol of its own destiny.
The Bulldogs put together a 5-2 record in
conference, placing them second behind
Northern California powerhouse Foothill
College. But a solo second place finish in con-
ference means the Bulldogs avoid the Owls
until the Coast Conference finals Saturday
morning. And if they do get to that game,
CSM will have already locked up a spot in the
NorCal tournament.
“I’d say for the month, I’ve had those
expectations,” said CSM head coach Randy
Wright. “Where we’re at now is identifying
and systematically programing our game plan
based upon what they’re doing. We’re not the
fastest team, we’re definitely not the biggest
team, we’re not even the most talented team.
But where these girls have excelled in is
they’re smart, their ability to adapt and play
against who their opponent is.”
CSM’s first opponent is De Anza College,
who finished seventh in conference. The
Bulldogs own a pair of dominating victories
over the Dons this year. And despite a CSM
team that is brimming with freshman youth
and inexperience, Wright says De Anza isn’t
what’s keeping him up the next couple of
“No way. Not my team,” Wright said when
asked if perhaps his team might overlook the

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. — Authorities
said Tuesday they uncovered a massive gam-
bling operation targeting youth football games
in South Florida, leading them to arrest nine
men, including several coaches with extensive
criminal backgrounds who they say exploited
kids to turn a profit.
The 18-month long investigation started
when ESPN journalists brought Broward
County Sheriff’s officials surveillance video
showing parents openly exchanging money in
the stands while watching their kids’ tackle
football games. Authorities later uncovered
the stakes on pee wee games were high, with
more than $100,000 wagered on the youth
football championship.
Coaches routinely met before games and set
point spreads, investigators said, but they do
not believe the games were thrown or that
coaches encouraged players not to complete a
touchdown in order to control the outcome.
Authorities said they had no evidence that the
players were aware of the bets.
“It’s about kids being exploited unfortunate-
ly by greedy parents and greedy grown-ups
and coaches who were basically nothing more
than criminals,” Sheriff Al Lamberti said.
After months of surveillance, digging
through trash cans and raiding two gambling
houses, authorities arrested alleged ringleader
Brandon Bivins, known as ‘Coach B’ in the
community, charging him with felony book-
making and keeping a gambling house. Eight
others were also charged Monday with book-
making and some were charged with keeping
a gambling house.
It’s unclear if Bivins has an attorney. A
phone message and email sent to one of the
other suspect’s attorneys was not immediately
returned Tuesday.
Authorities said the suspects have direct ties
to the South Florida Youth Football League
and several have extensive criminal histories.
Bivins has been convicted of cocaine posses-
sion, grand theft auto, and marijuana posses-
sion with intent to sell.
According to the league’s website, it has 22
clubs and 6,000 players, ranging from pee
wee to teens, in three counties. Many of the
children come from impoverished neighbor-
Emails and phone calls to several officers in
the league were not immediately returned
The website says the sole purpose of the
league “is to benefit children” and instill
wholesome values.
Bold print on the league’s website warns
that anyone taking bets on games will be
asked to leave. “The SFYFL is taking a hard
stand on gambling, recruiting, paying kids to
play and big hits on players.”
Perhaps more disturbing than the gambling
operation was the extensive criminal back-
ground of six coaches, authorities said.
An affidavit claims Bivins ran a fake bar-
bershop, complete with barber stations and
vending machines, as a front for a gambling
house. But behind what appeared to be a clos-
et door was a narrow hallway leading to a
seedy gambling room where Bivins and others
took bets on professional, college and youth
games behind conspicuously dark tinted win-
An informant placed numerous bets at Red
Carpet Kutz Barbershop and another gam-
bling front, Showtime Sports, during the
investigation, according to the affidavit.
Authorities said they seized nearly $40,000
from a drop safe at one of the storefronts and
took another $20,000 from Bivins’ home.
They believe ‘Coach B’ was skimming off the
top of the bets.
“(Bivins has) been to Florida state prison.
He’s out and he’s coaching youth football,” Lt.
Frank Ballante said.
Bivins was the president of the Fort
Lauderdale Hurricanes, one of the most suc-
cessful teams, and oversaw the coaches. He
also interacted with the players, Ballante said.
Deerfield Beach City officials ramped up
their background screening process for youth
coaches about 18-months ago when authori-
ties told them about the investigation, but each
city is in charge of setting its own ordinances
and they vary widely on the issue.
Authorities worry that betting on games can
lead to violence and other crimes. The gam-
bling bust comes after a Miami youth football
coach was arrested earlier this month for
punching a referee in the face during a game.
In another South Florida city, a coach fol-
lowed another coach home and killed his dog
in front of him, Ballante said.
Those incidents were not related to the gam-
bling busts, but authorities said it’s a lesson
for cities to ramp up their background check
Ballante warned gambling could end “up
with a human being being shot over a football
game and it’s not because their team lost a
game or their kid didn’t score the touchdown
it’s because they lost $40,000 on that play.”

Australia’s Sermanni hired
as new U.S. women’s soccer coach
CHICAGO — Tom Sermanni was hired Tuesday to
replace Pia Sundhage, who led the Americans to back-to-
back Olympic gold medals and their first World Cup final in
12 years. Sermanni has spent the last eight years as
Australia’s coach, taking the Matildas to the quarterfinals of
the last two Women’s World Cups.
“He has the knowledge, experience and vision to take on
the challenge of keeping our team at the top of the world,”
U.S. Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati said in a state-
ment. “He has a tremendous passion for the game, knows the
American players, understands our system and knows the
process of preparing a team for a World Cup tournament.”
Sermanni, a 58-year-old originally from Glasgow,
Scotland, has spent much of the last 20 years in Australia,
where he is credited with transforming the Matildas into one
of the world’s top programs. In addition to their quarterfinal
appearances at the 2007 and 2011 World Cups, the young
Australians won the 2010 Asian Women’s Cup. Their runner-
up finish at the same tournament in 2006 earned Sermanni
Asian Football Confederation coach of the year honors.
The Australians are ninth in the world, matching their
highest ranking.
Sermanni also coached Australia from 1994-97, leading
the Matildas to their first appearance in a World Cup, the
1995 tournament in Sweden. He was among 10 candidates
for FIFA’s 2011 Women’s Coach of the Year.

SANTA CLARA — San Francisco 49ers left tackle Joe Staley
claims he caught quarterback and seatmate Alex Smith checking
out his trending Twitter self while on the team plane awaiting
takeoff Monday night from Arizona.
Ha, says Smith, who insists he has no idea how to tweet.
“I don’t even have a Twitter,” Smith quipped with a grin
Tuesday during a quick walk through the empty locker room. “I
don’t know what Twitter is.”
They can argue that one all they want, yet
nobody will deny that Smith and the 49ers (6-
2) have been downright dominant of late,
including a 24-3 Monday Night Football rout
of the Cardinals in a hostile road stadium. In
a near-perfect night, Smith completed 18 of
19 passes for 232 yards and three touchdowns
without an interception. His passer rating:
Smith’s stellar outing sparked coach Jim
Harbaugh’s now heard-everywhere “gobble
gobble” remarks when asked about the confi-
dence of his quarterback.
“Just gobble, gobble, gobble turkey. That paints a pretty good
picture. He’s a very confident guy,” the coach said.
Following that up Tuesday, regarding the 2005 No. 1 overall
draft pick, Harbaugh said the reference was a quick way to sum
up all the skepticism about Smith’s abilities under center.
“I think anybody that watched a lot of TV shows in the ‘70s
could relate to it, could understand it,” he said. “Sometimes, you
get people talking and there’s a lot of low content-to-word ratio.
Got to call that out, I guess.”
Staley, for one, hadn’t heard Harbaugh use the “gobble gobble”
one before, but Harbaugh is always pulling out new catchphrases.
Smith has long been criticized, even booed by fans at Candlestick
Park before leading the 49ers back to the postseason last year.
“Just a lot of talk, gobble gobble,” Staley said. “I don’t think
that’s ever been an issue in the locker room, just people talking.
He’s won 19 games in the last two years and there’s still questions
if he’s a leader of this football team. There are no questions in this
locker room. He’s our quarterback.”
Suddenly, this season is looking an awful lot like that special
2011 run. Harbaugh’s team is in command of the NFC West again
as November nears, heading into the bye week on a roll.
And not to forget the stingy, top-ranked defense, which hasn’t
allowed a touchdown in four of the past five games.
“They’re accomplishing some great things,” Harbaugh said.
“That’s really impressive, really hard to do in this league.”
And Smith is doing so much right on the other side of the ball.
He went 14 of 15 for 146 yards and two touchdowns in the first
half alone, connecting with Michael Crabtree on both TD tosses
as the 49ers built a 17-0 halftime lead. Randy Moss caught a 47-
yard TD pass, and Smith hit nine receivers in all.
Not that anybody was tracking Smith’s spot-on accuracy as he
piled up the completions.
“I was not conscious of what his statistics were,” Harbaugh said.
“Yeah, that registered, that he was on a hot streak.”
Crabtree wound up with five receptions for 72 yards.
“Guys made terrific plays after the catch, Crabtree especially,”
Staley said.
Now, they all get to rest.
A few weeks back, Harbaugh struck a deal with his players that
for each win before the break he would give them an additional
day off on top of the NFL’s four-day mandate. San Francisco lost
to the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants on Oct.
14, then beat the Seahawks and Cardinals in a pair of divisional
prime-time performances.
So, they are not due back in the building until next Tuesday —
though many planned to stay around and work out at team head-
“That was a deal we made — from the TV show ‘Let’s Make a
Deal,’ with Monty Hall,” Harbaugh said. “Not a lot of them knew
who Monty Hall was or what the show was. Just wind back three
weeks ago, we said for every win they get before the bye they
would get one more day off than the four that you get under rule.
They were good for it, we were good for it.”
Next up is a third straight divisional game — and another
chance to create space in the West standings — against St. Louis
on Nov. 11 at home.
The 49ers are pretty certain Smith will bring his best again to
face the Rams.
“I believe it’s possible Alex Smith was trending on Twitter, yes,”
joked long snapper Brian Jennings, who will enjoy some time this
week with his wife and two sons, saying, “They’re all breaks for
me. I’m a long snapper.”
Notes: Staley will stick around this week and continue to work
to regain strength — and get back over 300 pounds — after being
limited in practice ahead of the Arizona game because of illness.
He played against the Cardinals, but got out of breath, used an
inhaler for the first time, and had oxygen on the sidelines. “I was
getting pretty tired as far as out of breath. It was harder for me to
catch my wind,” Staley said. ... TE Vernon Davis also plans to stay
put in the Bay Area rather than try to get home to Washington,
D.C., and deal with the problems from Superstorm Sandy.

STANFORD — The competition to be
Andrew Luck’s long-term replacement is not as
settled as it once seemed.
With Josh Nunes struggling to consistently
move the offense, Stanford coach David Shaw
said Tuesday that he plans
to play backup quarterback
Kevin Hogan more. Hogan
will take about 12 to 20
snaps at Colorado on
Saturday, putting pressure
on Nunes to improve after
several sloppy starts.
Hogan, a redshirt fresh-
man, played only about six
downs in each of the last
two games. While most of
that time has been as a read-option or wildcat-
style quarterback, expect more passes and pack-
ages soon.
“He’s not ready to take it all right now,” Shaw
said, “and I’m not ready to take it all away from
Nunes has started all eight games since the
Indianapolis Colts selected Luck with the No. 1
overall pick in the NFL draft. The redshirt junior
completed 7 of 15 passes for 136 yards and a
touchdown as Stanford squeezed past lowly
Washington State 24-17 last week. He never
found his rhythm, and at times looked lost.
The defense, which has carried the Cardinal
all season, sacked Jeff Tuel a school-record 10
times, and Ed Reynolds returned an interception
for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to bail out
the offense again.
Now the No. 15 Cardinal (6-2, 4-1 Pac-12)
head to Boulder to face the beleaguered
Buffaloes (1-7, 1-4). Future playing time could
be at stake with matchups against No. 13 Oregon
State and second-ranked Oregon that will decide
the Pac-12 North Division up next.
Asked if he’d consider starting Hogan should
the trend for both quarterbacks continue, Shaw
said: “Anything is possible. Anything is possible,
which is always the thing when you’re going to
give a guy more time at any position.
“We just can’t have another half like we had
this past game where we had 15 plays the whole
first half. We have to be more efficient.”
Washington State, the only winless team in
Pac-12 play, had 25 first downs to 12 for
Stanford. The Cardinal converted five of them,
only put together one complete drive all game,
and Shaw spelled Nunes for five consecutive
plays with Hogan between the third and fourth
Apparently Shaw has finally seen enough to
audible from a formula that so often hasn’t
Nunes beat out strong-armed Brett
Nottingham, once considered the favorite for the
starting job, in fall practice. Hogan emerged late
in that competition, and even though the depth
chart still lists Nottingham as No. 2, Hogan has
since passed the redshirt sophomore for playing
While Shaw said in spring practice he disliked
a two-quarterback approach because it could
disrupt rhythm, circumstances have forced him
to consider otherwise.
“It’s not so much a change in philosophy as
saying, ‘This is what is prudent. This is what is
the smart thing to do,”’ Shaw said.
Nunes has completed 52.6 percent of his pass-
es. Shaw has said all year he wants that figure to
be at about 70 percent, especially considering
Stanford doesn’t throw deep that often.
Nunes has thrown for 1,620 yards, 10 touch-
downs and seven interceptions. His struggles
have been well documented in losses at
Washington and Notre Dame, but so have his
highlights. He led Stanford to a 21-14 victory
against then-No. 2 Southern California, and ral-
lied the Cardinal from a two-touchdown deficit
to stun Arizona 54-48 in overtime.
Nunes has shouldered the blame for any offen-
sive struggles.
“It starts with me,” he said Tuesday, adding
that he isn’t bothered at all by splitting time with
Hogan, and praising his budding backup. “I just
need to make the throws and be more consistent
and get us into the right plays more often.”
Shaw also is quick to point out that not all the
blame falls on Nunes.
Top wide receiver Ty Montgomery has missed
three straight games with a lower leg injury, and
he dropped two key passes in the loss at
Washington, among others. Stepfan Taylor ran
for a career-high 189 yards against Cal two
weeks ago, but then the young offense struggled
to create lanes against the Cougars. The senior
ran for only 58 yards on 21 carries.
Hogan has seven carries for 16 yards in four
games and has only thrown the ball once, con-
necting with tight end Levine Toilolo for a 9-
yard touchdown in Stanford’s 21-3 win at rival
QBs to split more
snaps for Stanford

No Giants on Gold Glove list
By Ben Walker
J.J. Hardy thought he’d hit a home run, only
to be robbed when Mike Trout made one of
the most sensational grabs of the season.
On Tuesday night, Hardy caught a break.
The Baltimore shortstop won a Gold Glove,
putting him among a group of nine players
honored for the first time for their fielding
“It means a lot to me,” Hardy said. “It’s def-
initely an award I always hoped to get and
never really expected to get. I’m surprised and
honored at the same time.”
Pittsburgh center fielder Andrew
McCutchen, San Diego third baseman Chase
Headley and Oakland right fielder Josh
Reddick also were first-time selections.
“I’m just happy I can pull it out for them
and get the A’s name even more out there,”
Reddick said. “It’s a huge honor, I’m always
taking pride in both sides of my game and try-
ing to be a complete player. You never know
what one play, whether the first or the ninth
inning, is going to win a ballgame. That’s
what my mother and father taught me.”
The Orioles were the only team with three
winners. Baltimore center fielder Adam Jones
and catcher Matt Wieters were second-time
choices, joining Hardy for the awards chosen
by major league managers and coaches and
presented by Rawlings.
Trout, the Angels rookie who spent the year
climbing walls to take away potential homers,
was not picked. Among his best catches came
against Hardy at Camden Yards in June.
The San Francisco Giants, fresh off winning
a World Series in which they excelled with
their gloves, did not have a Gold Glover.
These were the first major awards presented
during the offseason, and the MVPs, Cy
Youngs and others will come in mid-
November. Gold Gloves always seem to raise
a ruckus, with many claiming the prizes —
actual gloves colored gold — don’t define the
most deserving fielders.
Hardy led the AL in fielding percentage,
making only six errors in 158 games. Others
relying on more advanced metrics and insist
Seattle’s Brendan Ryan was the best shortstop
— then again, even though awards are strictly
for fielding, players who don’t produce at the
plate often get bypassed, and Ryan hit a weak
.194. Hardy hit 22 home runs.
“I’ve always hoped but I never expected it,”
Hardy said. “It’s definitely an award I’ve seen
a lot of shortstops get that are really flashy and
kind of catch the eye of a lot of people. I don’t
look at myself that way. I kind of look at
myself as just trying to be consistent and
steady. I never felt like people noticed.”
Wieters, meanwhile, was chosen despite
leading AL catchers with 10 errors. He was
recognized for the many things he does well
— he threw out 39 percent of would-be bases-
tealers and rarely let pitches get past him.
Strong-armed St. Louis catcher Yadier
Molina won for the fifth straight year and
Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira added
his fifth award. Texas third baseman Adrian
Beltre, Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins
and Miami pitcher Mark Buehrle became
four-time winners.
Buehrle won three times with the Chicago
White Sox before joining the Marlins last win-
“With a whole new group of managers vot-
ing for you, it wasn’t like it was handed to
you,” Buehrle said. “The Gold Glove gets to
be, ‘He won it last year, give it to him again.’
This one means a lot, because switching
leagues, it was different managers voting on it.
I had to do my job to earn it.”
The other first-time winners in the National
League were Washington first baseman Adam
LaRoche, Chicago Cubs second baseman
Darwin Barney and Atlanta right fielder Jason
“I’m extremely thrilled,” Barney said. “It’s
something you came into the season working
toward, but it’s not something that I thought
the results would be there as quickly as they
were. I’m extremely happy about it. There’s a
lot of good competition out there, obviously,
and I’m really surprised that ended up hap-
pening for me. So it’s an exciting night for

Taco Bell general manager Nelson Santos
said he was informed Monday night via email
that his restaurant was chosen to host the spe-
cial event; calling it pure luck. From there, it
was a matter of making sure he was fully
staffed in anticipation of the hungry crowd. By
promotion’s end (6 p.m.), Santos said he
expected to serve over 3,000 Doritos tacos.
Yes, that’s a whole lot of hot sauce.
“I stole it for the team,” Pagan said while
donning a Taco Bell shirt and hat after taking
an order at the drive thru window and moving
over to make some Doritos Locos Tacos for all
the cameras in the kitchen. “I stole it to win the
ball game. It was a great opportunity to get
something going. But after that, my agent
called me and told me it was an important one
because I just won tacos for everybody in the
United States. So, I feel happy. I feel happy that
I brought everybody together in the United
States and it’s a great moment for all America.”
And surely San Francisco fans are only
beginning to bask in their championship
moment as they prepare for the World Series
Parade and rally today off of Market Street, up
McAllister and toward the Civic Center.
“It’s a dream come true,” Pagan said of win-
ning the World Series. “To come a long way
with my teammates. Everything starts in spring
training, getting ready for the season, having
the dream to make it to the postseason and have
a good season. But to go all the way is price-
“The chemistry of this team is unbelievable.
And ever since we got Hunter [Pence] and
[Marco] Scutaro, it just got better. It was spe-
cial. It made us better players. And thanks to
that, we never gave up, we never thought about
going home. We thought about winning one
game at a time. And now look at us, we won the
World Series.”
After scooping meat into a crispy Dorito
shell in the kitchen, Pagan sat and fans poured
in from outside to take a picture and have some
memorabilia signed by Pagan.
“It’s awesome,” Pagan said. “It’s very appre-
ciative because we play for the fans. We play to
be a winning team for the fans and they have
given us a lot of support throughout the whole
season and this victory is for them.
“This is a blessed city with great fans. The
truth is, it was a dream come true. I’ve always
said that you can dream this as a child, but until
you live it in the flesh, you can’t feel how spe-
cial it is. And the truth is, it’s made me a better
ball player and it’ll make me work hard every
year to get back here.”
And so, Chan rounded the booth in Taco Bell
and headed to his seat next to Pagan where he
pulled out his Doritos Locos Taco from a Big
Box and smiled while the centerfielder and
Chan made a bit of culinary history.
“It was fantastic,” Chan said. “We’re getting
some tacos in the neighborhood.”
Without a doubt, it’s the most delicious taco
Chan has ever had — shell, meat, lettuce, salsa
and a splash of World Series mojo.

“My agent called me and told me it was an important [steal]
because I just won tacos for everybody in the United States.

Rory McIlroy is officially a free
agent when it comes to golf equip-
McIlroy and Acushnet Co., which
has supplied the 23-year-old star
from Northern Ireland with Titleist
and FootJoy gear since he turned pro
five years ago, said Tuesday they
will not extend their relationship
after this year.
The announcement allows
McIlroy to pursue a lucrative
endorsement contract, with strong
indications that he will sign with
Nike in a deal that one industry
observer estimated at $20 million a
year. That would give Nike golf’s
two biggest stars in McIlroy and
Tiger Woods, who has been with the
swoosh since he turned pro in 1996.
McIlroy has established himself as
the No. 1 player in the world this

A’s pitchers Braden,
Devine become free agents
OAKLAND — Oakland Athletics pitchers
Dallas Braden and Joey Devine have cleared
outright waivers and chosen to become free
agents rather than accept assignments to
Triple-A Sacramento.
The AL West champion A’s made the
announcement Tuesday. Both pitchers missed
the 2012 season because of injuries that
required surgery.
Braden, the left-hander who pitched the
19th perfect game in major league history on
Mother’s Day 2010 against Tampa Bay,
underwent surgery on May 17, 2011, to repair
a torn capsule in his throwing shoulder. He
then had another procedure Aug. 21 to fix a
torn rotator cuff in the shoulder.
The right-handed reliever Devine is recov-
ering from elbow ligament-replacement sur-
gery for the second time on his throwing arm.
He also missed the 2009 and ’10 seasons after
the first surgery.
Oakland A’s brief
Wednesday • Oct. 31, 2012 THEDAILYJOURNAL
Serra got three goals from three different
players: Chris Bradley, Buljan and Danny
Molinari. The Warriors actually outscored
Serra over the final eight minutes, 4-3, but all
four of the Warriors’ goals came against the
Padres second team.
Greene was especially pleased to see the
Padres spread out the scoring. Earlier in the
year, the Padres depended on Buljan for most
of their offense, but against top defenses, it’s
going to be hard to find Buljan in the hole set.
Greene knows they need more diversified
scoring if the Padres stand a chance of win-
ning the WCAL tournament and going deep in
the Central Coast Section playoffs.
“Before, at least two-thirds of our offense
was through [Buljan],” Greene said. “Now,
we’re averaging about five scorers a game.
This game, the scoring was across the starting
The Padres will need to continue to get
scoring from multiple sources as well as play
strong defense as the road gets infinitely hard-
er. The Padres will face top-seeded Sacred
Heart Prep at 5 p.m. Thursday in Atherton in
one of the tournament semifinals. The other
semifinal features St. Francis and Bellarmine.
Sacred Heart Prep, Bellarmine and St. Francis
all beat and finished ahead of the Padres in the
WCAL standings during the regular season
and all will be contenders to win a CCS title
— Bellarmine and St. Francis in Division I
and the Gators in Division II.
Serra scored nine goals in a 17-9 loss to the
Gators on Oct. 17, which was the most goals
Sacred Heart Prep allowed in league play to
that point, which encouraged Greene at the
time. He believes if his team plays as well
Thursday as it did Tuesday, the Padres have a
shot at advancing to the tournament finals.
“The top three in the WCAL all play
tremendous defense. We play defense very
well,” Greene said. “If we can combine our
defense with our multiple goal scorers … we
can give those guys (the Gators) a great run.”

Peninsula the last two years. He averaged just
under 16 points and eight rebounds a game last
season while earning first-team All-West Catholic
Athletic League honors.
“I’m really happy for Henry signing with
Princeton. It couldn’t happen to a better kid,” said
Serra coach Chuck Rapp. “He’s a great leader,
hard worker, solid rebounder, solid post [player].
… He’s been a true credit to the Serra program in
his time here.”
Caruso is glad to put the recruiting process
behind him and he doesn’t anticipate the scholar-
ship to have any impact on the way he goes about
playing the game. While some athletes may feel
like they have to prove their scholarship by trying
to over play the game, Caruso doesn’t anticipate
that happening.
“Any time you step on the court, you always
have something to prove to someone. From a pres-
sure standpoint, I want that pressure. I want to
know the weight of the team is on my shoulders. I
want to be the leader,” Caruso said. “That’s some-
thing that I’m not afraid of. It’s more of an oppor-
While Caruso’s recruitment was a months-long
process, it was a whirlwind for Manoa. Aragon
football coach Steve Sell said it came out of the
blue when Manoa told him Monday Hawaii called
him and offered him a full scholarship. Usually
college coaches go through a prospect’s high
school coach, but Sell was actually surprised that
he hadn’t heard from any college recruiters about
Manoa, including Hawaii.
“I was skeptical as hell (when Manoa told me
about the offer),” Sell said.
Manoa, at 6-4, 220 pounds, has been an absolute
beast at defensive end for the Dons this season,
from rushing and sacking quarterbacks to making
plays all over the field. He transferred from
Hayward High and sat out the first half of last sea-
son due to transfer rules. He played in Aragon’s
final four regular-season games and two Central
Coast Section games. This year, he’s gotten
stronger and still has room to grow.
“I’m just surprised at the timing,” Sell said. “I
thought there might be a chance he might get [a
scholarship offer] in the summer. Seeing his size
and speed, being a high character kid and a good
student, I really expected someone to jump on
him. He only had six games under his belt (after
last season). [Schools] were a little reluctant and he
was a little raw.”
Manoa has a connection to University of
Hawaii, according to an article in the Honolulu
Star-Advertiser. The article said Manoa’s father
and family grew up in Hawaii. His uncle, Tim
Manoa, played at Penn State before playing run-
ning back for the Cleveland Browns and
Indianapolis Colts in the NFL.
“Last year, he was a great pass rusher. Now, he’s
more of a complete defensive lineman,” Sell said.
“He has good instincts. He’s an athlete.”

So then that leaves all focus and preparation
for the Coast semifinal match against either
West Valley or Cabrillo College — teams with
a combined 1-3 record this year against CSM.
“We have to be ready to roll,” Wright said. “I
don’t care what they have. We’re at a point
now where the main focus has to be what we
have — doing what we need to do. Not what
we want to do. But what we need to do. You
can’t want it anymore. You have to be more
needy, more greedy and go after it. You need to
put the ball on target now. That’s where we’re
Finding the back of the cage will make or
break CSM in its postseason run. In their final
game against Santa Rosa, the Bulldogs had
twice as many chances and twice as many
shots than their opponent. But most of those
shots weren’t on target and CSM lost 9-8. The
Bulldogs’ offensive dry spells during the sea-
son have dictated their outcomes. In the play-
offs, those missed opportunities are magnified
“I’m not going to call it Jekyll and Hyde
because the consistency is there in terms of
working the system, getting open looks, mak-
ing the right decisions,” Wright said. “The
only inconsistent part is the finished product
— putting the ball on target. It has be on tar-
get to go in the cage.”
Wright said his team can simultaneously
prepare for West Valley and Cabrillo consider-
ing they offer similar difficulties for CSM.
If the Bulldogs were to beat De Anza and
then take down West Valley or Cabrillo, it was
mark the first time in 10 years the Bulldogs
have made the conference final.
“We know what the goal is — it’s Saturday
morning. This is a one-game tournament,”
Wright said. “The goal is now is to make to it
to the next week.”

Chef Jose Andres to teach class on power of food
WASHINGTON — Acclaimed Spanish chef Jose Andres is
heading back to the classroom.
Andres, who has popularized tapas small
plates at his Washington-area eateries, will
teach his first course at George Washington
University next year. The school is
announcing Monday that Andres will teach
a course on how food shapes civilization.
The weekly class is open to 230 stu-
dents. Topics will include the politics and
history of food, hunger and obesity and
food’s relationship with national security.
Andres says eating is one thing everyone has in common. He
says food connects with science, art, energy, economics,
health, diplomacy and other parts of society.
The chef has also taught at Harvard and has said he wants to
create a research center on food policy that could level the
playing field with agribusiness lobbyists.

By Manuel Valdes
SEATTLE — First, warm spring
weather in the Northeast and Midwest
tricked apple trees into bud-
ding earlier. Then an
untimely frost damaged
the delicate blossoms.
For apple farmers
in producing states
like New York and
Michigan, this has
been a forgettable
year, with severe
declines in production
of as high as 90 percent.
But it is amounting to a
boon for Washington state growers,
who are already in the midst of a near
record harvest, and now looking for-
ward to higher demand and prices for
their produce.
“If we can get this fruit harvested,
it’s a perfect storm for Washington,”
said Todd Fryhover, president of the
Apple Growers Association. “We
could have a banner year for returns
and profitability for our industry, but
only time will tell.”
Washington is likely to
have a harvest of 108
million bushels, its sec-
ond highest number on
record, industry repre-
sentatives said. A
bushel is a 40-pound
box of apples.
The main variables
still looming: a possible
shortage of pickers and
unpredictable weather at the
end of the harvest season.
Usually, Washington’s apple farm-
ers need about 40,000 workers to har-
vest their huge crop, said Kirk Mayer
of the Washington Growers Clearing
House Association.

with great aunt Dolores Piper in South
San Francisco at the time of his death,
within walking distance of the gas sta-
Gaines was shot June 5 at the Arco gas
station at about 9 p.m. after he and
another teen were stopped by Cabillo,
who suspected the teen was carrying
drugs or possibly a weapon due to his
suspicious behavior, according to a letter
sent from the District Attorney’s Office
to Massoni in August after it concluded
its investigation into the boy’s death.
The officer told Gaines to put his
hands in the air and the teen started to
comply before fleeing the scene. The
officer gave chase and caught up to him
quickly before grabbing his clothing and
striking him on the back of the head with
a gun, according to the letter.
As Gaines fell to the ground, a gun fell
from his person onto the ground close to
the teen’s knee, according to the letter to
“Before Officer Cabillo could even
manage to say the words ‘don’t,’ Mr.
Gaines lifted up his shoulders, began to
sit up, and with his right hand reached
across his body toward the firearm on
the ground by his left side. At that point,
Officer Cabillo believed that the subject
was reaching for the firearm. Officer
Cabillo concluded that he did not have
enough time to get to the firearm before
the subject would, and believed that
once the firearm was seized by Gaines
that it would be used on the officer.
Fearing for his life, Officer Cabillo fired
a shot, which hit the subject in the neck,”
according to the letter.
Yesterday, Guido told the Daily
Journal “the truth needs to come out”
and that the officer has to be accountable
for his actions.
“They didn’t even come to my house
and tell me he’s dead,” she said about
police. The friend who was with Gaines
that night, Remy Carrillo, told her that
her son had been shot, Guido said.
Piper, who is not a signatory in the
complaint, told the Daily Journal yester-
day that only the officer and any wit-
nesses to the incident know what hap-
pened that night.
The family is seeking a jury trial to get
any witnesses on the stand to hear their
accounts of the events that night.
The attorney the family hired, Burris,
represented the family of Oscar Grant
after he was shot and killed by a Bay
Area Rapid Transit officer in 2009.
Grant’s family was awarded millions
in two separate civil suits.
The complaint alleges Cabillo shot
Gaines twice, once in the base of his
neck and another in his lower back.
While Piper said she would never con-
done the action of the boy she helped
raise, she said Gaines would not have
been reaching for the gun because he
knew it did not work. The gun was not
loaded nor did it have a firing pin.
“I wouldn’t condone what he did in a
million years. If he was here now I’d
kick his butt,” she said.
Piper, too, has suffered from the inci-
dent as, she told the Daily Journal, many
in the community have shunned her for
continuing to seek accountability from
the officer and police department.
“No one is talking to me anymore. No
one wants me to question what hap-
pened. I’m being alienated from the
community and it is just sad,” she said.
She recently buried some of the boy’s
ashes in Montana, a place he loved to
visit and even hoped to live one day.
“I wish I would have moved him
there,” Piper said yesterday.
The plaintiffs are seeking damages for
mental and emotional injury from the
loss of familial relations with Gaines’,
his companionship, love, affection, sol-
ace and moral support.
Guido told the Daily Journal the case
is not about “raking in money” but rather
to seek justice for her slain son.
The DA’s investigation concluded that
Cabillo feared for his life and the shoot-
ing was a lawful response to the boy’s
actions that night.
An autopsy showed Gaines had
cocaine, methamphetamine and amphet-
amine in his blood. Both marijuana and
methamphetamine pills were also recov-
ered from his person upon removal of

police officers.

home, the $70 million given to the city
of San Bruno and any fines from state
Dylina’s decision came after two days
of attorneys discussing the importance
of knowledge.
PG&E attorney John Lyons argued
that the company did not know the
pipeline had a defect and it could not
have known it would fail causing the
Sept. 9, 2010 explosion and fire that
killed eight and destroyed 38 homes.
“It’s something that happened but
wasn’t intended,” he said.
Frank Pitre, an attorney who repre-
sents about 75 victims of the blast, spent
the morning arguing the company had
years of opportunities to conduct proper
safety tests that would have brought the
defect to light prior to the explosion.
“When you know nothing about a
pipe, you must assume the worst,” said
Pitre, who compared using the pipeline
without proper testing to playing
Russian roulette.
Pitre said even a slight risk of some-
thing happening is reason to test the
pipe. His outline, entitled “54 years of
conscious disregard to safety,” pointed to
multiple laws that have arisen since the
pipeline was installed in the ’50s to
require hydrotesting. Instead, PG&E
decided to spike pressure, a practice
Lyons noted was allowed by Congress.
The price difference between the two
tests is more than $200,000 Pitre said,
adding it was a conscious decision to
save money.
“Top to bottom, [PG&E] always acts
in a manner in disregard to safety,” Pitre
Lyons said the company assumed the
pipe had been tested at the manufacturer.
He called Pitre’s argument to be circum-
stantial since there are no witnesses alive
from the time the pipe was installed to
discuss decisions or reasoning. Also,
federal safety regulators allowed compa-
nies to assume an older pipeline was safe
it had a history of being so, which the
line through San Bruno did, Lyons said.
Pitre, on the other hand, said the utili-
ty company “ignored for 54 years what
they were required to know.”
Prior to the final decision on Tuesday
morning, PG&E attorneys filed a request
to hear the punitive damages case sepa-
rately from the other issues. Dylina said
he was inclined not to allow the request
since the parties had all previously dis-
cussed how to proceed with the case.
The motion is scheduled to be heard
Nov. 20.

Continued from page 1
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Don’t take anything
for granted where your work or career is con-
cerned. If you get a bit cocky and think you have
all the answers, you won’t listen to the warnings
all around you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Take care not
to reject out of hand something that you didn’t
consider or think of on your own. Many ideas will
come from unusual sources, and you can’t afford
to reject them.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It might be a
good idea to have someone double-check your work.
There is an excellent chance you could goof up on a
minor point that would make a major difference.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Much of your time
could get devoted to insignificant endeavors if
you’re not on your toes. Don’t expend your energy
on inconsequential affairs.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- It’s admirable of you
to speak of family members in glowing terms, but
don’t go so far as to attribute to them accomplish-
ments that they never had anything to do with.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Know what you’re
getting into before signing any document or agree-
ing to do something for another. Check on what’s
involved before making assumptions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If you fail to pay attention
to all the details involving a commercial arrangement,
just because you don’t care, chances are high that you
will get bested by someone who cares quite a bit.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Just be yourself instead
of attempting to behave in ways you think are
expected of you. If your performance isn’t believable,
it could hurt your image instead of enhancing it.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Should you be called
to task on something you promised but failed to do,
don’t try to respond with a lot of excuses. Instead, set
a defnite time line and get it done.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t participate when a
couple of catty friends voice unfattering remarks
about another pal who isn’t present. If you do, the
absent party will later fnd out what was said and
hold you personally accountable.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- An unfriendly co-worker
is just waiting for you to do something wrong. Don’t
give this person any cause to use your actions
against you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You might be more
interested in what you have to say than in listening
to some sage advice from a friend. When you get into
trouble later on, you’ll wish you had been all ears.

Protesters delay
vote on new Libyan Cabinet
TRIPOLI, Libya — Libya’s new prime minister on Tuesday
put forward a Cabinet for parliamentary approval, but protest-
ers stormed the building during the session, forcing a post-
ponement of the vote on the new government.
Around 100 protesters, a mix of bearded civilians and self-
proclaimed rebels, broke into the hall during a session in
which Ali Zidan, the new prime minister, was telling the
National General Congress that he tried to strike a geographic
balance among different regions and cities.
By Ben Hubbard
BEIRUT — Airstrikes by Syrian jets
and shells from tanks leveled a neigh-
borhood in a restive city near the capital
of Damascus on Tuesday, killing 18 peo-
ple, and at least five rebel fighters died
nearby in clashes with regime troops,
activists said.
The airstrikes on the city of Douma,
northeast of the capital, left residents
scampering over a huge expanse of rub-
ble and using their hands to dig up man-
gled bodies, according to activist videos
posted online.
Scenes of vast destruction like those
from Douma on Tuesday have grown
more common as rebels seeking to top-
ple President Bashar Assad have made
gains on the ground, and Assad’s forces
have responded with overwhelming air
In the past weeks, anti-regime activists
say about 150 people have been killed a
day in fighting. Since the uprising
against Assad began in March 2011, they
say 35,000 have died.
Tuesday’s airstrikes came a day after
what activists called the heaviest and
most widespread bombing campaign
nationwide, on what was to be the final
day of an internationally sanctioned
truce that never took hold.
The death toll for what was supposed
to be a four-day cease-fire ending
Monday exceeded 500.
Activists speculated that the govern-
ment’s heavy reliance on air power
reflected its inability to roll back rebel
gains, especially in the north of the
country near the border with Turkey,
where rebels have control of swathes of
The international community remains
at a loss about how to stop the Syria vio-
lence. The U.S. and other Western and
Arab nations have called on Assad to
step down, while Russia, China and Iran
continue to back him.
In the latest fighting after nightfall
Tuesday, the Britain-based Syrian
Observatory for Human Rights said 18
civilians were killed in an airstrike and
tank fire Tuesday in the Hajariyeh neigh-
borhood in the suburb of Douma, north-
east of Damascus.
Syria activists report 23 dead in airstrikes
