Fighting for victims
and their families
By Heather Murtagh
Therese Heymann, a 21-year-old
from Burlingame, was killed early
Friday morning when hit by a train
in Richmond, Ind., according to
local police.
Three students from Earlham
College, located in eastern Indiana,
were struck by a train shortly after 1
a.m. Friday in
the Depot
District of

p o l i c e .
Heymann, a
2009 graduate
of Burlingame
High School
and a senior at Earlham, was
declared dead at the scene.
Sophomore Lenore Edwards and
senior Graham Nissen, named by
the college, were transported to
Reid Hospital and then airlifted to
Miami Valley Hospital.
This is one of the worst scenar-
ios we can imagine, Earlham
President David Dawson said in a
statement on the colleges website
Friday. This is a very tight-knit
community and tragedies such as
this affect us all very deeply. We
want to ensure that our students
spiritual as well as physical
needs are met at a time of deep sor-
row such as this.
Heymann, who went by Tracy,
was involved in band and the
Ecology Club while at Burlingame
High School, according to the 2009
school yearbook.
Burlingame band teacher David
Kimura said Heymann was part of
the band all four years. She played
the saxophone in the marching band
and the oboe in the concert band.
Shes a very positive, very sweet
girl. I think anyone who met her
would say that. She was always

WASHINGTON An economic
calamity looming, President Barack
Obama on Friday signaled willing-
ness to compromise with
Republicans, declaring he was not
wedded to every detail of his tax-
and-spending approach to prevent
deep and widespread pain in the
new year. But he insisted his re-elec-
tion gave him a mandate to raise
taxes on wealthier Americans.
The majority of Americans agree
with my approach, said Obama,
brimming with apparent condence
in his rst White House statement
since securing a
second term.
Trouble is, the
Republicans who
run the House
plainly do not
agree with his
plans. Speaker
John Boehner
insisted that rais-
ing tax rates as
Obama wants will destroy jobs in

Demand for parking in downtown
San Mateo has increased and, with
the loss of redevelopment funds, the
city is looking to develop and imple-
ment new parking management
strategies and nd the money to
expand parking in the citys busi-

The city will work in three phases
with an initial plan to seek quick
wins including the improvement of
customer usability for its on-street
multi-space pay machines; to revise
the citys parking ordinance to allow
overnight residential or hotel park-
ing as appropriate; to revise the
valet parking ordinance to make it
easier to implement and administer;

Boy Scouts will be walking door to door
Nov. 10 to hang iers advertising for their
annual Scouting for Food Drive in conjunc-

helps feed underprivileged families during the
Scouting for Food is a nationwide service
the Boys Scouts of America has performed for
over 30 years, said Ronald Chang, senior dis-
trict executive, Discovery District of the
Pacific Skyline Councils Boy Scouts of
Second Harvest works with a number of
different Bay Area agencies (and) publicly
and privately issues the food they collect,
Chang said. So, for the most part, the food is
collected by the Boy Scouts and delivered to
the food bank collection locations and then
reissued to those agencies directly.
In the Bay Area, the Boy Scouts typically
collect upwards of about 80,000 pounds of
That equals about 20,000 meals for fami-
lies of four or holiday meals for 20,000 fami-
lies of four, Chang said.
Part of the Boy Scout motto is to do good
daily, and the food drive is a very public exhi-
bition of that motto.
The younger Cub Scouts will get recog-
nized with a patch and the older Boy Scouts
serve the community as part of required com-
munity service hours Their hours range from
one to more than 20 hours of combined serv-
ice, Chang said.
This is not the Boy Scouts rst spin around
the block this year. This past October, the Cub
Scouts hosted their annual popcorn drive
where two Cub Scouts, Connor Lovell and
Zachary Rees, found a wallet while walking
door to door. Their Cub Scout principles were
put to the test. With the help of their Cub mas-
ter, Donn Lovell, the boys identied the owner
of the wallet and returned it to him, cards and
cash included. As Cub Scouts, their motto is
to do whats right so the boys did not accept
the reward offered. Instead, the grateful owner
bought a few bags of popcorn to support the

RENO, Nev. A storm has left up to 18
inches of snow in the Sierra Nevada and raised
the hopes of skiers and snowboarders after a
subpar snowpack last winter.
Frigid temperatures also have allowed ski
resorts to crank up snow-making machines in
advance of the Thanksgiving holiday period.
Mammoth Mountain Resort, just east of
Yosemite National Park, reported Friday that
the storm brought 6 to 12 inches of snow. It
was the only resort open in California on
Friday, a day after it began operations for the
season with some 1,000 skiers and snow-
boarders on the slopes.
Snow brings them out of the woodwork,

As Fridays midday sun began to set off the
coast of Half Moon Bay, this years
Mavericks Invitational surfers, family, sup-
porters and locals gathered for the opening
ceremony marking the start of the waiting
period for this years competition.
The contest relies on big and consistent 30-
to 50-foot waves that must occur between
now and March 31.
As the crowd grew along the beach and on
the cliffs, several of this years competitors
arrived and began to line up their surfboards.
Some of the invitees included Santa Cruzs
Shane Desmond, San Clementes Greg Long,
Australias Ben Wilkinson and South Africas
Chris Bertish. As they chatted amongst them-
selves, comparing new boards and telling
tales of their summer surf, Mavericks pioneer
Jeff Clark showed up in a wetsuit and with his
surfboard in tow.
The competitors, family members and
locals lined up against their 9-foot boards
standing straight in the sand to commence the
ceremony. Clark introduced each surfer as his
children began to pass out tea leaves, a tradi-
tion he learned from Hawaiian surf cere-
Clark gave tribute to the men who dare to
brave Mavericks; informing the public, and
indirectly reminding the surfers, that each
person goes out there with the knowledge that
if anything were to go wrong, they must do all
that is in their power to keep their fellow men
safe, to keep this family together, Clark
As they stood and bowed their heads, Clark
led the group in a prayer.
Were asking our father in heaven to watch
over us as we put it all on the line. Watch over
us and our families, Clark said.
The men gave thanks and commemorated
their fellow surfers who have passed at the
hands of the daunting waves. But they also
prayed for the elements to align and provide a
competition. They prayed to Mavericks, Clark
Grant Washburn, 44, resides in San
Francisco and has battled the winter swells at
Mavericks for 20 years. As the oldest com-
petitor, he has competed in every Mavericks
competition stemming from its beginning in
1998. He knows that even with his legacy of
experience, Mavericks can expose a profes-
sional at will.
This is a place that is very challenging; the
best in the world can sometimes fall to it. So
we all know that; and guys are not silly and
crazy daredevils, but very calculated. Its easy
to get excited, cause youre having fun out
there, and let your guard down. But we have
to always keep in mind that even on a small
day, this place could kill you, Washburn said.
Santa Cruzs Peter Mel, 43, was crowned
the champion of the international Big Wave
World Tour in the 2011-12 season. Although
Mavericks was added to the list of the tours
destinations last year, the swells failed to
Mels 20 years of experience and respect for
the power that is Mavericks aided him in last
years competition, but hell never overlook
the dangers of big wave surng.
Weve lost a lot of close guys out here. I
hope for a safe event, Mel said.
The son of a surfboard shaper, Mel grew
up inundated with surf culture. He cant imag-
ine doing anything else and jokingly said he
doubts he could. But the previous competi-
tion, now two years past, held waves to which
he aspires.
We had perfect glassy waves at the last
competition. Im hoping for more clean big
waves and a safe event, Mel said.
Mel and Washburn, along with the other
competitors, hope this year will afford an
event. Washburn is encouraged by the begin-
ning of this years season.
We had one swell early in the year so
everyones getting excited. So now you got to
hold your breath and wait, Washburn said.
The ceremony progressed as they burst into
the 53 degree water and paddled out a few
hundred yards from shore. A few dozen com-
petitors and locals sat atop their boards and
gathered to hold hands.
We make a circle out there and pray for
waves, Washburn said.
At the ceremonys closing, the competitors
retreated to land, meeting at the Yacht Club
where names were drawn to determine heats
and competition order; assuming there is a
competition. So for now, all they can do is
pray for waves.
Mavericks officially kicks off
Opening ceremony held Friday at site of notorious surf contest
With the opening of the window for the big-wave surf contest at Mavericks near Half Moon

The charges against William Myles Harrell
keep growing.
The Brisbane man, already charged with
keeping a large stash of dynamite in his home,
now faces prosecution for allegedly maintain-
ing a marijuana grow house on the coast.
Prosecutors added two felonies to his case
which already includes possession of explo-
sives, possession of explosives in a residence,
possession of marijuana for sale and child
endangerment. He pleaded not guilty and his
preliminary hearing was postponed to Dec. 13
on all counts.
The grow house was uncovered after
Harrells arrest for allegedly keeping 145
pounds of explosives and a gallon-size bag of
marijuana in a locked closet. Police had gone
to his residence on Cliff Swallow Court Oct. 1
on reports of a domestic disturbance with his
live-in girlfriend. Authorities found no cause
to arrest Harrell for the disturbance and he
was set to leave in a taxi for his parents
Montara home until the girlfriend asked of-
cers to follow her back inside. She told them
Harrell kept a closet locked but she had a key
made and grew concerned for her childrens
safety once she discovered the contents.
Inside, along with the explosives and mari-
juana, was reportedly $37,000 in cash.
Authorities have not said why they think
Harrell had the stash but believe he has ties to
extremist groups.
Harrell posted $500,000 bail shortly after
his arrest using proceeds from a gold bar sold
by his mother, according to prosecutors.

federal response to pot measure
DENVER Should marijuana be treated
like alcohol? Or should it remain in the same
legal category as heroin and the most dangerous

point in the nations conicted and confusing

Colorados governor and attorney general
spoke by phone Friday with U.S. Attorney
General Eric Holder, with no signal whether the
U.S. Justice Department would sue to block the

ing to see whether the Justice Department
would assert federal authority over drug law.

WASHINGTON David Petraeus, the
retired four-star general renowned for taking
charge of the military campaigns in Iraq and
then Afghanistan, abruptly resigned Friday as
director of the CIA, admitting to an extramari-
tal affair.
The affair was discovered during an FBI
investigation, according to ofcials briefed on
the developments. They spoke on condition of
anonymity because they were not authorized to
publicly discuss the matter.
Petraeus carried on the affair with his biog-
rapher and reserve Army officer Paula
Broadwell, according to several U.S. ofcials
with knowledge of the situation. They spoke
anonymously because they were not author-
ized to discuss the investigation that led to the
resignation publicly.
The FBI discovered the relationship by mon-
itoring Petraeus emails, after being alerted
Broadwell may have had access to his person-
al email account, two of the ofcials said.
Broadwell did not respond to voice mail or
email messages seeking comment.
Petraeus resignation shocked Washingtons
intelligence and political communities. It was
a sudden end to the public career of the best-
known general of the post 9/11 wars, a man
sometimes mentioned as a potential
Republican presidential candidate. His service
was effusively praised Friday in statements
from lawmakers of both parties.
Petraeus, who turned 60 on Wednesday, told
CIA employees in a statement that he had met
with President Barack Obama at the White
House on Thursday and asked to be allowed to
resign. On Friday, the president accepted.
Petraeus told his staffers he was guilty of
extremely poor judgment in the affair. Such
behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband
and as the leader of an organization such as

led an infantry platoon in Afghanistan.

general had provided extraordinary service to
the United States for decades and had given a

Letters to the editor
By Jackie Speier
was recently alone in an elevator that
was to take me up four oors to my dis-
trict ofce in San Mateo. The elevator
door opened and closed for a late arrival, an
Iraq veteran who said he recognized me.
During our 60-second journey, he told me
what Ive seen and felt time and again from
combat veterans. Anxiety.
I havent been in combat, but Ive been
shot by an assault weapon so I get the part
about anxiety. A platoon sergeant put it to me
this way. He once entered a room in the out-
skirts of Baghdad with dead bodies piled in
the middle of the room. He counted 80 bod-
ies ... and they were children. He still has
trouble entering rooms.
A corporal who contacted my ofce for
help said he and his sergeant were in a road-
side bomb explosion in Iraq they were
whisked away by a medical helicopter. The
corporal said he can still feel the drops of
blood from the sergeant who was bleeding to
death in a stretcher directly above him ... and
that was ve sleepless years ago.
And former Congressman Pete McCloskey,
a double Purple Heart recipient, tells me he
still sees the faces of the enemy on that hill
in Korea and that was nearly 60 years ago.
This is a cost of war, unknown to most
people in our country.
Less than 1 percent of our
nation is in the military
and only 7 percent are
veterans. If more of us
knew the cost of war,
either rsthand or through
a loved one, wed be less
likely to send out troops
into harms way, thats
my belief and McCloskeys as well and
hes one tough Marine veteran who bemoans
the fact that fewer and fewer members of
Congress have served in the military. About
21 percent in the current Congress which has
eight fewer military veterans than it did four
years ago.
Of the 2 million men and women who have
served in Iraq and Afghanistan, almost half
face serious mental issues, according to the
VA. Many veterans avoid seeking help
they fear the stigma attached to mental health
treatment. And when they do seek compensa-
tion from the VA for service-connected
injuries, they are subjected to an unjustied
long wait for a claims decision by the
Oakland VA which has the largest claims
backlog in the nation.
Some veterans mired in the slow claims
process have come to me for help. Since
March of this year, my ofce has helped Bay
Area veterans receive more than $1 million
in VA benets. But the number of veterans
that weve helped is dwarfed by the number
of California veterans who are still waiting
more than 66,000 have a backlogged
claim at one of the three VA regional ofces
in the state.
The head of the VA said his goal is to
eliminate 60 percent of the claims backlog by
2015. That simply isnt good enough. We
cant leave 40 percent of the veterans behind.
We cant leave any veteran behind.
Eliminating the backlog is not an item for
unnished government business, it is more
akin to a national promise to all our veterans,
regardless of whether or not they have a
claim on hold. Making those who served us
as whole as possible is a solemn responsibili-
ty that deserves greater recognition, not only
today, but every day.

One lesson of the past election
Everyone seems to agree that the voters
in this past election sent the parties mixed
messages. But I hope the Republicans see
the clear implication of at least one fact:
The electorate not only gave the Democrats
a few more seats in both houses of
Congress, but also, more significantly, re-
elected a Democratic president whose per-
formance satisfied almost no one.
Clearly, a majority of voters blame
Republican obstructionism and not
President Obamas performance for the
stagnation of the last four years. And well
they should. It is shameful that a national
party would make the defeat of a duly-
elected president its primary goal for four
years. How about the welfare of the country
as a goal?
If compromise is a dirty word so is
democracy because compromise is essen-
tial to democracy. In a free country and
whatever some extremists say, this is a free
country no one party gets its own way
on any issue. No compromise! is the ral-
lying cry of know-nothings and fascists.

Governmental spending
In his Nov. 9 column, Jon Mays asks: So
does that mean that San Mateo County resi-
dents are super nice hosts, who would rather
pay taxes ourselves rather than ask visitors
to pony up?
Amazing how the concept of reducing
spending is no longer part of any equation
to solve our debt crisis. Governmental bor-
rowing of 45 cents of every dollar spent on
non-critical programs shows there is no con-
scious thought given to rein in our debt. The
United States we grew up in is over, and
this financial burden we so willingly leave
our children to deal with is irresponsible
and shameful.
But it appears that my generation, being
smarter than any previous generation,
believes it knows best.

Regarding the letter Big oil misinforma-

Gitas thoughts on big oil and the profits
they are raking in from gouging us at the

fossil fuel power plants are polluting our

now the biggest polluter of our planet.

does methane come from? Animal and

If California would institute a good strong
energy program and get away from the wind
and solar joke, this state would not need to
purchase expensive out of state power. And
talk about getting away from fossil fuels.
The solar and wind industries are two of the
most fossil fuel intensive industries on the
planet. If you really want a good strong
electric program, then do something smart
like supporting two industries that take tax
dollars and do nothing to help us get away
from fossil fuels. Do the research and see
for yourself. But when you do, do not be
surprised all your good, fuzzy thoughts
about wind and solar go down the drain.
Also, it would be in this states best interest
to figure out where the electric supply is
going to come from to support the electrify-

Dont leave any veterans behind
A strong local
connection to vets
By Tim Meadors
ov. 11 commemorates the end of
World War I at the 11th hour of the
11th day of the 11th month in 1918.
The day provides an opportunity for the
nation to reect on the sacrices and contri-
butions made by those who served in the mil-
itary. In recent years, reports and articles were
published identifying the growing gap
between the military and the populace. A
Time Magazine article published on Veterans
Day last year entitled An Army Apart: The
Widening Military-Civilian Gap provided a
convincing discourse on the fraying relation-
ship between the United States and its mili-
The Time Magazine piece and others like it
focus on a problem. The celebration hosted
by San Mateo, Hillsborough and Burlingame
during Memorial Day weekend earlier this
year for troopers from the 101st Airborne
Division displayed a solution. As a veteran
and a recipient of the generosity displayed
during Operation Eagle Visit, I would like to
refresh everyones memories of the celebra-
tion and express my appreciation for the com-
munitys kindness.
San Mateo, Hillsborough and Burlingame
united to thank veterans of todays conicts
in Iraq and Afghanistan along with those who
served in Operation Desert Storm and
Vietnam. The genesis of the celebration and
the initiation of the relationship between the
cities and the soldiers can be traced to a letter
sent by a young soldier serving in the jungles
of Vietnam to his sister Linda more than 40
years ago. Sgt. Joe Artavia knew his home-
town of San Mateo would embrace him and
his comrades and lift their depleted morale as
high as the clouds if given the opportunity. In
the letter, Sgt. Artavia asked Linda to petition
San Mateo to adopt his unit. Linda carried the
message and convinced the citys leaders to
adopt ABU Company of the 101st. Along the
way and unbeknownst to her, she began a
movement that is now a national phenomenon
and unites old to young, black to white, baby
boomers to Generation Xers and America to
Americas military.
Operation Eagle Visit recognized the con-
tributions of yesterday while acknowledging
the need to face tomorrow together. Boot
Camp with the Eagles joined more than 100
brave souls with the visiting soldiers for an
hour of exercise. The Recognition Banquet
honored the sacrices of troops who served
from the 1970s to the present day while rein-
forcing the special bond between the 101st
and the local area. The parade and barbecue
in the park commemorated the parades that
welcomed home troops from Operation
Desert Storm and Vietnam. Generations of
soldiers and civilians were connected during
each event of the monumental weekend.
One does not have to look far to nd the
standard-bearer for a community that proudly
embraces the military and closed the gap
described in the Time Magazine article. I am
grateful to the members of the Operation
Eagle Visit Committee led by the San Mateo
city clerk; the elected ofcials in San Mateo,
Burlingame and Hillsborough; the police
departments from the three cities; the re
departments from the three cities; and the
people who continue to support the men and
women willing to serve in todays military.
At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th
month, please join me in taking a moment to
reect on the freedoms and opportunities we
enjoy in the United States. Also, think of the
tremendous spirit of patriotism that burns
bright in the hearts of those who wore, wear
and one day will wear a military uniform as
well as those willing to support those who
served, serve or will serve in the military.
Tim Meadors served as the commander of ABU
Company, San Mateos partnered unit, from
November 2006-February 2009.

NEW YORK Wall Street is peering
over the scal cliff and feeling vertigo.
The stock market nished one of the
worst weeks of the year Friday, pushing
Washington to work out a deal to avoid
the tax increases and government spend-
ing cuts set to take effect Jan. 1.
Remarks by re-elected President
Barack Obama and House Speaker John
Boehner on the looming deadline didnt
do much to cheer the market. Stocks n-
ished barely higher for the day.
Chris Bertelsen, the chief investment
officer at Global Financial Private
Capital of Sarasota, Fla., said he expects
Congress and Obama to reach a compro-
mise to avoid the scal cliff.
But it could well be the conventional
U.S. political way of doing it the last
minute type of stuff in which case the
markets will be haunted by it until the
point it happens, he said.
For the week, the Dow Jones industri-
al average fell 277 points, or 2.1 percent.
The Dow has fallen 795 points since hit-
ting its closing high for the year, 13,610
on Oct. 5.
The S&P fell 2.3 percent during the
week, its worst weekly decline since
June 1, when investor concern about the
debt crisis in Europe was rising.
Stocks began their slide Wednesday in
the biggest sell-off of the year after vot-
ers returned Obama, a Democratic
Senate and a Republican House to
power. Investors immediately turned to
worrying about the cliff.
If the tax increases and spending cuts
take full effect, the U.S. will likely fall
back into recession, the Congressional
Budget Ofce said Thursday.
Boehner said Friday that he remains
unwilling to raise tax rates on upper-
income earners. But he left open the pos-
sibility of balancing spending cuts with
revenue increases that come from some
revisions to the tax code.
Stocks managed a small rally. The
Dow was up about 30 points when
Boehner started talking and about 80
points shortly after.
Then Obama said he would not accept
any approach to federal decit reduction

Big movers

FRANKFURT, Germany The
worst of Europes financial crisis
appears to be over.
European leaders have taken steps to
ease the panic that has plagued the
region for three turbulent years.
Financial markets are no longer in a state
of emergency over Europes high gov-
ernment debts and weak banks. And this
gives politicians from the 17 countries
that use the euro breathing room to x
their remaining problems.
Threats remain in Greece and Spain,
and Europes economy is forecast to get
worse before it gets better. But an immi-
nent breakup of the euro now seems
unlikely, analysts say.
We are probably well beyond the
worst, says Holger Schmieding, chief
economist at Berenberg Bank in
London. He says occasional are-ups in
nancial markets are likely, but coming
waves of turmoil will be less severe.
Evidence that Europe has turned a cor-
ner can be found in countries falling
borrowing costs, rising stock markets
and a slow but steady stabilization of the
regions banking system:
The interest rates investors are
demanding to lend to struggling coun-
tries such as Spain and Italy have
plunged a sign that investors are less
fearful about defaults. Spains two-year
bonds carry an interest rate, or yield, of
just under 3 percent down from a July
24 peak of 6.6 percent. Italys bond
yields have dropped just as sharply.
The Stoxx 50 index of leading
European shares has surged 26 percent
since June 1, while the euro has risen
from $1.26 to $1.29 over the same peri-
After months of withdrawals, deposits
are trickling back into Greek and Spanish
banks, signaling that fears of their immi-
nent nancial collapse are abating. And
U.S. money market mutual funds loaned
16 percent more to eurozone banks in
September. That was the third straight
monthly increase in short-term funding to
European banks, and follows a 70 percent
reduction since May 2011.
More proof the crisis is easing:
Gatherings of European nancial minis-
ters no longer cause global stock and
bond markets to gyrate with every sign
of progress or a setback.
As financial-market panic recedes,
euro leaders have more time to try to x
the aws in their currency union. Among
the challenges are reducing regulations
and other costs for businesses in order to
stimulate economic growth, and impos-
ing more centralized authority over
budgets to prevent countries from ever
again spending beyond their means.
Europe turns corner on economic crisis
By Anne DInnocenzio
NEW YORK J.C. Penney Co. is
hoping it has hit rock bottom.
The bad news keeps getting worse
for the struggling department-store
chain that on Friday reported a wider
third-quarter loss than Wall Street
expected on a nearly 27 percent drop
in revenue. That marks the third con-
secutive quarter of big losses and sales
declines as customers continue to
show that theyre unhappy with
Penneys decision this year to ditch
hundreds of coupons and annual sales
in favor of everyday low pricing.
The poor results underscore the chal-
lenges facing Penneys CEO Ron
Johnson, the former Apple Inc. executive
who was brought in a year ago to turn-
around the struggling retailer. Since then
Johnson, who masterminded Apples
popular retail stores, has been working
to change everything at Penney, from its
stores to its merchandise.
Penney is starting to see some positive
results from the makeover it began this
fall of 700 of its 1,100 stores with sec-
tioned-off shops inside each that feature
different brands such as Levis and
Penneys new JCP line of casual clothes.
The company said overall sales from the
shops-within-stores are strong. But the
continuing negative response to the
companys everyday low pricing strate-
gy has more than offset the boost.
During the third quarter, revenue at
stores open at least a year plummeted
26.1 percent. Thats higher than the 17.6
percent drop analysts had been expect-
ing. Meanwhile, the number of cus-
tomers coming into the store dropped 12
percent from the year-ago period.
I expected horric but this was worse
than expected, said Brian Sozzi, a chief
equities analyst for research rm NBG
Productions that follows Penney.

on strike over contract talks with
Northern California supermarket chain
Raleys has agreed to new terms with a
rival grocer a move that labor experts
say will put pressure on Raleys to make
a deal.
Pleasanton-based Safeway announced
on Thursday that it had reached a tenta-
tive contract agreement with the United
Food and Commercial Workers, the
same union that went on strike against
West Sacramento-based Raleys on
Sunday after last-ditch contract talks
failed. The deal would protect existing
health benefits, including provisions
providing coverage to retirees, the
Sacramento Bee reported.
Among the sticking points in the
Raleys dispute is the chains desire to
eliminate retiree health benefits for
those who have turned 65 and are eli-
gible for Medicare.
The tentative Safeway deal still
requires the approval of the unions local
Raleys and Safeway compete for
business in the Sacramento region.
Striking workers, who have picketed
outside Raleys stores, could increase
efforts to redirect customers to Safeway
or Save Mart Supermarkets, another
chain with which the union has reached
a labor deal.
Union reaches tentative pact with Raleys rival
American Airlines
moves closer to pilot contract
NEW YORK The pilots union for American Airlines
says it and the company have reached an agreement in
principle for a new contract.
The agreement means pilots could vote to ratify the con-
tract within three weeks. If approved, the contract would
help pave the way for the Fort Worth, Texas-based airline
to exit bankruptcy. AMR Corp., the parent of American
Airlines, led for Chapter 11 protection last November. It
has reached labor agreements with all of its unions except
for the pilots.
The pilots rejected a prior contract proposal this summer
designed to save American more than $300 million a year.
American then won permission from the bankruptcy court
in September to impose new pay, benet and work rules on
pilots. The airline has about 7,500 active pilots.
Business brief
Gators fourth-quarter rally shocks Menlo
By Nathan Mollat
Football coaches always talk about protect-
ing the football as a key to winning games.
It may be clich, but its true. The Menlo
School squad found that out the hard way as
Sacred Heart Prep converted three Knights
turnovers into three touchdowns as the Gators
rallied from a 28-16 fourth-quarter decit to
beat Menlo 31-28 in the annual Valpo Bowl
Friday night at Woodside High.
It was the second time in the game the
Gators had to comeback from a two-touch-
down hole. Menlo led 14-0 41 seconds into
the second quarter as Sacred Heart Prep could
not do much on either side of the ball in the
opening 12 minutes. But in the second quar-
ter, the Gators offense finally found its
rhythm. After kicking a eld goal, they took
advantage of a four-yard punt and a short eld
to score their rst touchdown of the night with
less than a minute to play in the rst half.
Then things went sideways for the Knights.
Quarterback Jack Heneghan was blindsided
by Sacred Heart Preps Sean Mayle, popping
the ball out of Heneghans hand. Derek
Hunter snatched the ball out of the air and
rumbled 33 yards the other way for a touch-
down with six seconds left in the half to give
the Gators a 16-14 lead at halftime.
Menlo recovered and played a dominating
third quarter, scoring
twice to take a 28-16 lead
going into the fourth
quarter. Again, Sacred
Heart Prep righted the
ship and took advantage
of two fourth-quarter
Knights turnovers.
After the Menlo defense held the Gators on
fourth down, Sacred Heart Prep got the ball
back two plays later when Mike Covell cut in
front of a Menlo receiver and picked off a pass
and returned it to midfield. The Gators
promptly marched 51 yards on nine plays,
with Andrew Segre bulling his way into the
end zone from two yards out to cut their
decit to 28-23 with 5:04 to play.
The Gators got the ball right back when
Heneghan fumbled the ball at his own 25-yard
line and Sacred Heart Prep was back in busi-
ness. It took them ve plays to nd pay dirt as
Ben Burr Kirven scored his second touch-
down on as many carries and just like that, the
Gators took a 31-28 lead with 3:05 left in the
The Knights had one last shot, starting their
nal drive at their own 34. They got as far as
the Gators 29, but three straight incomple-
tions set up a fourth-and-10. Heneghan hit
Connor Stastny on an underneath screen, but
the Gators defense dropped him after a 6-

No matter what the San Mateo and
Burlingame football teams do during any
given season, there is only one game that
truly matters. They can win Peninsula
Athletic League division titles, advance to
the playoffs or even win a Central Coast
Section championship and none of that can
trump the importance of the annual Little Big
Game, which is renewed for the 85th time at
11 a.m. Saturday at Burlingame. Win that
game and the players will talk about it for the
rest of their lives. Lose it and it sticks with
them in perpetuity.
One of my assistants put it like this:
theres the preseason, theres league and then
theres the Little Big Game, said San Mateo
coach Jeff Scheller, who will be coaching in
s e v e n t h
Little Big
G a m e .
Preseason didnt go too
well (for us). The league season was OK, we
nished second. Now were locked in on
Scheller is intimately familiar of the
importance of rivalry games. A Hillsdale
graduate, he was part of the annual Aragon-
Hillsdale matchup. He was a member of the
last Hillsdale team to beat Aragon in 1991.
That rivalry pales in comparison to the
Little Big Game.
Its no question its the Little Big Game
(that is the bigger deal), Scheller said.
probably hear
some Aragon and Hillsdale people
say that, too. The fans, the walking to the
game, the halftime show. Its a huge deal.
Burlingame coach
John Philipopoulos was
also part of a big rivalry
game during his high
school years. He gradu-
ated from Oceana
where it faced Terra
Nova annually in the
Anchor Game. Now
preparing to coach in his 11th Little Big
Game, there is no question in his mind which
game has more meaning.
Its an event here. It really is,
Philipopoulos said. Its two schools,
two communities going at it in a friendly-
type of way. There are a lot of people who
are vested in it. Its something that will
never get old.
The one concern both coaches have is
keeping their teams focused on the game of
playing football. With so many activities, ral-
lies and other events lling the week, both
coaches have to make sure their teams focus
on the game itself and not get too caught up
in the hype that is the Little Big Game.
This year has been a little different. This
is such a focused group, Scheller said. I
think that will help us in the game. Theyre
just so focused on wanting to do well and
hoping to get that Paw (trophy) back.

NHL talks on break;
union holds internal meeting
NEW YORK The NHL put the
course of ongoing labor negotiations
back in the hands of the players associ-
ation, and left union head Donald Fehr
with some things to consider Friday
A bigger problem might be a wider
gap between the sides than the players
After three seemingly positive days of
talks, things went a bit sour Friday night
when negotiations ended for the day.
The union was under the impression the
numbers suggested they were closer to
an agreement. NHL Commissioner Gary
Bettman disagreed.
Gary made a comment (Thursday)
that there is still a lot of work to do. I
think, given todays session, there is still
a lot of work to do, Fehr said. We
looked at some of the numbers on the
various proposals and we thought we
were much closer together on the struc-
ture of a deal than the suggestions were.
They came back to us and said, No, we
are very very far apart on the structure of
the deal.
There were vocal disagreements at the
end of the session, and the union team
went back to its ofce to hold a confer-
ence call with the executive board and
other players.
The union is beginning to feel that the
NHL isnt ready to make a deal now,
even if the players were suddenly willing
to accept the leagues offer in full
which they are not.

The Merten sisters senior Cammie Merten, left, and
sophomore Elisa Merten are rivals on the volleyball
court only. Cammie attends Sacred Heart Prep while Elisa
goes to rival MenloSchool.
By Nathan Mollat
When volleyball fans see Cammie Merten playing for
Sacred Heart Prep and Elisa Merten playing for Menlo
School, naturally questions are asked: are they related?
People ask us if were cousins, Cammie Merten said.
The two are related, but they are not cousins they are
sisters. So how do siblings end up not only at different high
schools but schools that are each others rival?
When they shadowed and met people at the school, they
came out with different impressions, said Andrea Merten,
the sisters mother, who admits it can be a bit hard in split-
ting loyalties. She said both girls spent a day at each school
before entering high school and each decided to go the
opposite route all on their own.
Cammie (a senior) went to Sacred Heart Prep and shad-
owed (followed a high school student throughout the day to
get a slice of life at the school) and everyone was so friend-
ly and outreaching. Elisa (a sophomore) had the (same
experience at Menlo), Andrea Merten said.

It took them until the last game of the
regular season, but that doesnt matter
now: The Aragon Dons are going to the
Central Coast Section playoffs.
The Battle of Fleas Friday night
turned out to be just that for the Dons.
On paper, it was a football game they
probably should have ran away with. But
Aragon had to battle the Hillsdale
Knights and themselves in order to come
away with the 61-28 victory. Sure the
score looks lopsided in the newspaper,
but it wasnt until late in the fourth quar-
ter that the Dons were able to relax and
enjoy their 21st straight win in the rival-
ry series.
We had to win this game, said
Aragon head coach Steve Sell. Not just
for the playoffs this is our rival and
they play us tough all the time. They
(Hillsdale) did a good job. It wasnt a
matter of us mentally breaking down.
They made plays and they played hard.
They played super hard. They made it
tough on us.
We knew we could do some things
against them, said Hillsdale head coach
Mike Parodi. But obviously, their
record speaks a lot. Theyre a Bay
Division team and were a Lake Division
team. Athletically with a Bay Division
team, theyre going to have close to a
dozen good athletes. So, you have to
deal with that. Thats why theyre wor-
thy of who they are and the league
theyre in.
At the end of the night, Aragons supe-
rior athleticism did give them the extra
push. Although for a while there, the
Knights made the Dons sweat it out.
But it did take a serious wake-up call
for Hillsdale to nally react and by then
it was a tad too late.
With 8:56 left in the second quarter,
Aragon was up 28-0 and the game
appeared destined for an early running-
clock. Both sides of the football were
dominated by the Dons.
Aragon jumped out to a 7-0 lead on a
46-yard touchdown run by J.D. Elzie
four plays into the game. Elzie then
picked off a pass on defense deep in
Hillsdale territory and two plays after
that, Marcel Jackson did the honors from
18 yards out with less than two minutes
off the game clock.
Jackson was at it again on the next
Aragon drive that took ve plays to nd
the end zone, this time on a 13-yard run.
And then after another Hillsdale
turnover on the rst play of the second
quarter, the Dons Patrick Pauni bull-
dozed his way into the end zone, com-
pleting an eight-play drive to make it 28-
It was only then that Hillsdale woke
up and made it an uncomfortable couple
of quarters for the Dons.
Cole Carrithers got into a bit of a
groove with Brandon Butcher that paid
off in the form of a touchdown with 5:47
left in the half. After Carrithers complet-
ed a couple of passes, it was A.J. Bernal
who nished the deal on a 12-yard run.
The Hillsdale defense followed that by
forcing a fumble and turning that into
another Bernal touchdown. The big play
on that drive was a 44-yard completion
to Justin Kelly.
Shocked a bit, Aragon scored a huge
touchdown before the half with Nat
Blood completing a couple of passes and
Kyle Kaye taking the ball to the house
on a reverse to make it 35-14.
We had to score, Sell said of that
touchdown. That was a must-score
there. If we dont score there, I dont
know what happens. [Hillsdale] runs
that offense well and they gave us prob-
lems. They did not quit. They fought.
They got right back in that game.
We just realized that our biggest
enemy was ourselves, defensive line-
man David Manoa said about his teams
halftime adjustments. And once we
realized that, we just executed and got
the outcome. It was great for us.
Manoas defense came to play in the
second half. First, Isiah Atchan came up
with a huge interception that the Dons
cashed in four plays later on an 18-yard
run by Elzie to make it 42-14.
Hillsdale punched back on a long
touchdown pass by Carrithers that
caught everyone off guard except the
Hillsdale sideline and just like that it was
But Aragons next drive somewhat
deated Hillsdales hopes of a win. The
Dons used 10 plays to eat up ve crucial
minutes in the third quarter and then
scored on the rst snap of the fourth
period on a 16-yard Blood to Elzie
swing pass to make it 49-21. The nail in
the cofn came four plays later when
Brandon Gordon jumped in front of a
Hillsdale receiver and intercepted a ball
he took into the end zone for a touch-
down from 41 yards out.
Aragons nal score came courtesy of
Kaye after a special teams play gave the
Dons the ball on the Hillsdale 10-yard
Hillsdale did not go quietly, making a
play on defense to force a fumble that
the defense scooped up and took into the
end zone for the games nal outcome.
Were not built like [Aragon], Parodi
said. But Ill take my kids any day. I
dont care. I rather go to battle with the
kids I have because of the effort they put
in. Were still going to be all right in the
future and were going to work our butts
off. We dont care.
Its great, Manoa said of clinching a
spot in the playoffs. Weve been work-
ing really hard and our goal was to make
it to the playoffs. But, were not going to
stop there. Were going to keep working
hard and take it week by week and see
how far we can go.

After countless miles and a seasons worth
of racing, there is only one Bulldog left stand-
With his 34th place nish at the NorCal
nals, Aragon graduate Anthony Cortes will
represent the College of the San Mateo at the
State meet next weekend. CSM went into the
NorCal meet at Crystal Springs in Belmont
with hopes of qualifying two runners for the
season-ending bash, but things didnt quite
work out that way.
According to head coach Joe Mangan, San
Mateos most successful runner in 2012,
Francisco Vargas, twisted his ankle between
the second and third mile and was unable to
nish the race.
Its a little bit of a disappointment because
I certainly would have like to have him [at
state], Mangan said. Im pretty sure he was
in a position to qualify. It would have been a
good experience for him as a freshman and
using that as a launch pad to have a good track
season and see how much he could improve
from this season to the next.
Based on his race at the conference nals, a
14th-place finish that earned him All-
Conference honors, Vargas couldve feasibly
earned a top-half nish to qualify for state. As
it stands, only Cortes, who nished 16th and
just outside the All-Conference cut off, will
represent CSM. Mangan said the key for
Cortes was to stay relaxed and run his race.
I still think thats the key a distance kid
needs to rely on, the ability to run fast, but
relaxed, Mangan said. Thats what Im
always telling them and trying to get into their
brains. To not get out there and sprint really
hard and all of a sudden, youre running at a
pace your body is not ready for and you end
up tiring out.
I think its one of those things where, at
Crystal Springs, the kids have trouble with
because they want to sprint down that (start-
ing) hill, he said. Gravity is going to take
you down there no matter what and you may
go by the rst half at 2:10 or 2:20 but if you
let gravity take you at 2:15 or 2:25, you may
get 20 seconds on the back end of that. So, it
may sound a little different, but you use up all
this mental and physical energy to be the rst
down the hill and get to that half-mile mark
and you look up and go oh God, Im more
tired than I thought I would be. And it gets
harder than it should be. Thats a hard hill,
regardless. But if you set yourself up to make
it harder, it will be.
But Cortes made it simple for himself and
ran a 22:44.67 a 15-second improvement
over his conference time.
Panic in any sport is not a good thing,
Mangan said. Its not conducent for good
performance. Rarely do you see it end up
being a positive. When that panic situation
sets in, you have to take it the opposite way
and understand. I am not in the position that
I want to be, I need to get moving forward.
A pair of CSM runners nished off their
junior college careers at NorCals. Dom
Davino ran his best race of the season. The
former Burlingame Panther ran a time of
24:28.12 that, according to Mangan, was a
70-second improvement in a weeks worth of
He ran a really nice race. Sometimes its
hard to frame that when theyre out there
watching the race and I was really surprised
when I saw his times and what his average
pace was because I knew that was a clear
improvement from the week before, Mangan
The young Bram Wallace, a 16-year old
Bulldog moving on to a four-year university
after his time with CSM, nished with a
He worked hard this season. His season
just hasnt turned out quite as well as we
would have liked. He shouldve been up clos-
er to Dom. He just hasnt been able to put
together the right race for himself.
While Wallace and Davino said good bye to
their cross country careers at CSM, Cortes
will race in Fresno next Saturday.
The Fresno course is a little easier than
ours, Mangan said. Id like to see him some-
where in the 21:30s. The other thing is, I
always like to go back and compare how a kid
did against our conference kids. So, in our
conference, Anthony was 16th. This week, at
NorCals, he would have been 11th. So that
was a nice improvement. I would like to see
him higher than 34th out of our NorCal peo-
ple 30 to 25 range. It will give him a good
platform for track.
Were excited about the prospects of our
team, Mangan said of the upcoming track
and eld season.

SANTA CLARA Theres no secret
about what the NFLs second-ranked
defense wants to accomplish over the
second half of the season.
Its the same list of things the rst-
place San Francisco 49ers got done on
that side of the football during their rst
eight games.
As a defensive unit, the way we play
speaks for itself, outside linebacker
Ahmad Brooks said Friday. Were an
aggressive D, and we want to shut guys
Nobody in the league does that better
than the 49ers, who have allowed fewer
points than any team and rank either rst
or second in the NFL in seven defensive
categories as they prepare for their rst
game since their bye on Sunday against
the St. Louis Rams.
The long layoff San Francisco will
be playing just its second game in 24
days gave the 49ers some time to
reect on a defensive performance that
was dominant during most of the sea-
sons rst half.
The 49ers, who returned all 11 starters
from last season, have matured as a vet-
eran unit, building on what they accom-
plished in 2011 when San Francisco
ranked fourth in the NFL in total
defense and led the league in rushing
Its a veteran group of talented play-
ers, and you see upward trajectory real-
ly in all their play, coach Jim Harbaugh
said. I dont see anybody thats falling
off or decreasing in their effort or their
performance on the eld. And then how
theyre playing together as a group
all those things were seeing good
improvement at a high level.
The 49ers (6-2) have played at the
highest level keeping opponents away
from their goal line. San Francisco has
allowed a NFL-low nine touchdowns,
including a league-low six through the
The 49ers have not allowed a touch-
down in four of their past ve games,
and their opponents have scored just 12
total points in those four victories. San
Francisco shut out the New York Jets in
September and is allowing just 12.9
points per game, which would be a fran-
chise record if it holds to the end of the
San Franciscos lone shutout last sea-
son came against St. Louis at
Candlestick Park, where the 49ers will
be looking to shut down the struggling
Rams (3-5) again and extend their 11-
game home winning streak against NFC
West opponents. Thats the longest
active streak in the NFL.
You want to be good at everything,
but the biggest thing is keeping teams
out of the end zone, Harbaugh said.
Number one is keep the other team
from scoring, as few points as possible.
The 49ers also have made strides this
year defending against the pass, which
has made them a complete defense. San
Francisco ranks second in the NFL in
pass defense after nishing 16th in that
category last year.
San Francisco is the only NFL team
not to allow a passing touchdown of
more than 20 yards this season, and the
49ers have allowed only nine passing
plays of 25 or more yards, the third-
fewest in the league.
Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has
lauded the improvement of his starting
secondary, which includes Pro Bowlers
Carlos Rogers and Dashon Goldson, and
also nickel cornerback Chris Culliver,
who has become a regular part of San
Franciscos defensive packages.
Little strides in a lot of areas equals a
big difference, Fangio said.
One area where the 49ers would like
things to be different the rest of the sea-
son is creating more turnovers. The
Niners led the NFL in takeaways (38)
and turnover differential (plus-28) last
season, but at midseason this year
theyve produced only 12 turnovers and
their turnover differential stands at plus-
But theres still a half season to work
on improving those numbers.
We were looking at that turnover-
ratio chart the other day, Brooks said.
Last year, we were at the top of that
chart. Were going to have to boost that
up. But well just keep doing the same
things weve been doing all year, the
same things we were doing last year,
just trying to go out there and dominate
the other team.
49ers defense hungry for shutouts
ALAMEDA The Oakland Raiders will be without their
top two running backs for Sundays game in Baltimore after
Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson missed a third consecu-
tive day of practice.
Both players suffered high ankle sprains in last weeks loss
to Tampa Bay and have been wearing walking boots since
Coach Dennis Allen had been hopeful of getting at least one
of the two back in time to play the Ravens. Now the Raiders
will have to lean on a seldom-used third-string running back
and a converted fullback to get the running game going.
(Neither) of them made enough progress this week that
they were able to be up, Allen said Friday. Well probably be
going through the same thing next week and well see where
were at.
This marks the 14th game in ve seasons McFadden has
missed because of injuries. The fourth overall pick in 2008, he
has yet to play a full 16-game schedule since entering the
McFadden was injured early in the rst quarter against the
Buccaneers when his left ankle bent awkwardly following a
short gain. He remained in the game and continued to play
before leaving for good with about nine minutes left in the rst
Taiwan Jones, a fourth-round pick in 2011 who has played
primarily on special teams this season, and fullback Marcel
Reece have been splitting reps in practice with Oaklands rst
team offense while McFadden and Goodson are sidelined. The
team has also discussed the possibility of activating former
Stanford running back Jeremy Stewart from the practice
Of course Im very excited, Jones said. Youve gotta be
patient in this league. Ive been waiting for my opportunity
and its here, so Im going to try to make the most of it.
Jones, who sat out the nal six games of 2011 with a ham-
string injury, has only one carry for two yards this year. He
began the season as the Raiders kickoff returner but fumbled
in his rst play of the opener against San Diego.
Since then, Jones has seen very little playing time in the
backeld but has emerged as Oaklands leading tackler on spe-
cial teams.
Now that hes back on offense, the speedy Jones will pair
with Reece in an attempt to spark a running game that ranks
31st in the NFL.
Im very aware that Im not Darren McFadden, Jones said.
The coaches, they do a good job of putting me in positions
and giving me plays for what I can bring to the table. Im not
trying to be Darren McFadden or anyone else.

scored 27 points, Pau Gasol added 14
points and 16 rebounds, and the Los
Angeles Lakers responded to coach
Mike Browns ring earlier Friday
with a 101-77 victory over the Golden
State Warriors.
Jordan Hill scored 14 points for the
Lakers, who had just a few hours to
absorb Browns dismissal after just 18
months on the job. Following a
bumpy rst half under interim coach
Bernie Bickerstaff, they pulled away
in the third quarter with a 25-9 run led
by Bryant, who also had nine
rebounds and seven assists.
Stephen Curry scored 18 points and
Klay Thompson had 15 for the
Warriors, who have lost ve straight
to the Lakers overall, and nine
straight at Staples Center since March
The comfortable victory doubled
the Lakers victory total for the season
and capped one of the most tumul-
tuous days in recent history for a fran-
chise thats never short on drama.
With the talented veteran club off to
a Western Conference-worst 1-4 start
after a winless preseason, Lakers gen-
eral manager Mitch Kupchak and
owner Jim Buss abruptly dismissed
Brown, informing the players during
their morning shootaround.
Bickerstaff ran the Lakers as the
interim coach, but the veteran NBA
bench boss isnt likely to be a candi-
date for the full-time job. Kupchak is
searching for a replacement, possibly
making a selection before the Lakers
next game on Sunday against
The Lakers crowd quickly made its
choice known: A chant of We want
Phil! rose out of the stands while
Bryant shot a free throw in the third
Phil Jackson, the 11-time NBA
champion coach who won ve rings
in two previous stints running the
Lakers, is near the top of Kupchaks
list again, the GM acknowledged.
Mike DAntoni, the former Knicks
and Suns coach, also is thought to be
a prime candidate.
Dwight Howard had six points and
eight rebounds while playing just 24
minutes for the Lakers in his ongoing
return from offseason back surgery.
Steve Nash, the other major addition
to the club, watched from behind the
Lakers bench, missing his fourth
straight game with a small fracture in
his leg.
Brown never got the chance to inte-
grate the two stars into his new
offense while they were dogged by
health issues. Kupchak and Buss still
needed to see more success than the
Lakers managed in the past six
weeks, particularly on defense and
Los Angeles limited the Warriors to
33.7-percent shooting.

they are the same when it comes to
the position they play setter.
They were basically born to be vol-
leyball quarterbacks. Andrea
Merten was a setter at Loyola
Marymount University and was her
daughters rst coach when they
took up the sport in middle school.
Now, the pair are two of the pre-
miere setters on the Peninsula.
Cammie is the starting setter for the
27-5 Sacred Heart Prep squad, aver-
aging 18.5 assists per match. Elisa is
the starter for the 22-10 Menlo
team, averaging 23 assists per
match. Both were key cogs in the
Gators and Knights nishing as co-
champions of the West Bay Athletic
League Foothill Division after the
schools split the season series.
I think its really nice to be in
every single play, even if youre not
the nal [hit] and getting all the
glory, Elisa Merten said. Its real-
ly fun to get to touch the ball every
Despite playing for rival schools,
all three Merten women said there is
not a lot of hostility at home. In fact,
Cammie and Elisa dont really talk
that much about the game when
away from the court. They arent
comparing of notes or stats once
they get home from a match.
They dont even talk about it,
Andrea Merten said. They ght
over clothes, thats it. [Volleyball]
isnt really a topic of conversation.
The rivalry angle between the two
schools is even blown out of propor-
tion. Its not as if the teams square
off every week or even every month.
The two volleyball teams see each
twice during the regular season,
thats it. Cammie Merten said even
with the rivalry between the
schools, it rarely extends past the
playing eld. She said a lot of the
kids from both school went to ele-
mentary and middle school together
before heading off to different high
schools. Its hard to maintain real
animosity toward someone with
whom you grew up and see them
often around the neighborhood or at
the local market.
There is a close connection
between the two schools, Cammie
Merten said. All these kids live in
the same neighborhood. The rivalry
is just at the sports events.
Said Elisa: I know a lot of people
that go to Prep. I get the question all
the time, Why didnt you follow in
your sisters footsteps?
Because they face off against each
other so rarely, it tends to be a spe-
cial event when the two teams do
meet on the court. Its at those times
Andrea Merten tends to sit off by
herself away from the crowd. She
said because she is friends with
players parents from both teams,
she has sometimes found herself in
the awkward position of cheering
for one daughter while sitting in the
cheering section of the other.
The regular-season finale was,
naturally, Sacred Heart Prep at
Menlo. As is custom, the nal home
match is usually dedicated to sen-
iors on both teams. There is usually
an exchange of gifts and Menlo
decided to present the Sacred Heart
Prep seniors with owers. Naturally,
Elisa was chosen to present the
ower to her elder sister.
She gave me my rose and we
hugged, Cammie said. Come
game time, there was no smiling or
Both Mertens admit the tensions
do build up slightly when the
Menlo-Prep game is on the schedule
and they can expect things to be
even a little more dicey if the seeds
play out in the Central Coast
Section playoffs. Sacred Heart Prep
is the No. 2 seed in the Division IV,
while Menlo is No. 3. Assuming
both win their quarternal matchups
Saturday, the two teams will face
each other in the seminals next
The winning Merten advances to
the nals, the losing Merten sees her
season end. But they wouldnt have
it any other way.
People ask if it (the rivalry) goes
home with us, Elisa said, adding
that it doesnt. Even if we werent
sisters, were really focused on just
playing the game.

yard game to seal the win.
In the rst quarter, Menlo did lit-
tle wrong. Heneghan shredded the
Gators defense on the Knights sec-
ond possession of the game, throw-
ing for 54 yards as they drove 80
yards on 12 plays, with Heneghan
nding Stastny on a 2-yard scoring
pass for a 7-0 lead with 3:22 to play
in the quarter.
After forcing a Sacred Heart Prep
punt, Heneghan and the Menlo
offense went back to work. Heru
Peacock gained 17 yards on a run
and three plays later, Heneghan
hooked up with Peter Bouret for a
27-yard gain down to the Gators 29.
Two plays later, Heneghan threaded
a perfect pass to Bouret for a 29-
yard score on a post pattern and
Menlo led 14-0.
Heneghan nished the game com-
pleting 20 of 34 passes for 228 yards
and three touchdowns. He was also
Menlos leading rusher, gaining 60
on 20 carries. Connor Paterson
caught six passes for 65 yards for
the Knights, Bouret had two catches
for 56 and Stastny nished with 50
yards on ve catches. Each also
caught a touchdown pass.
From there, however, the Sacred
Heart Prep defense buckled down.
Although the 28 points allowed was
a season high, the Gators defense
allowed 31 yards of total offense.
After allowing 136 yards passing in
the rst half, the Gators held Menlo
to just 92 in the second half and they
sacked Heneghan six times.
Offensively, the Gators had two
rushers go over the 100-yard mark.
Ryan Gaertner nished with 107
yards on 19 carries, while Segre had
106 on 16 carries.
The Sacred Heart Prep defense sacks Menlo quarterback Jack Heneghan in the Gators 31-28 Friday night.

Hamilton, B.J. Upton and Kyle
Lohse were among nine free agents
who turned down $13.3 million
offers from their former clubs
Friday as the annual general man-
agers ended and team officials
headed home for what gures to be
a busy month of negotiations.
Also rejecting the one-year guar-
anteed offers were the New York
Yankees trio of Nick Swisher,
Rafael Soriano and Hiroki Kuroda
along with David Ortiz, Michael
Bourn and Adam LaRoche.
Under baseballs new labor con-
tract, all the deadlines of the busi-
ness season has been speeded up in
an attempt to prompt quicker deci-
sions before the Christmas holidays.
That should create more activity in
the market before teams head to the
winter meetings in Nashville, Tenn.,
from Dec. 3-6.
It expedites things, People are
out there and available and being
discussed right away, said Dave
Dombrowski, president of the AL
champion Detroit Tigers. It de-
nitely has picked things up more
Under the old rules, teams had
until Dec. 7 to offer salary arbitra-
tion to their former players who
became free agents. Top players
under a statistical formula that was
part of the 1981 strike settlement
had compensation attached if they
signed with new clubs which
would lose high-round draft picks.
Under the labor contract agreed to
last November, that system was
replaced by qualifying offers.
Free agents reject $13.3M deals as GMs head home
By Carly Bertolozzi
efore my elder sister and I were
even born, our parents had agreed
sending us to
college was one of the
most important things
they would ever do for
When she was young,
my sister would walk
around in diapers, so I
have heard from many
amused family members,
saying she was going to
Stanford when shes all grown up. When I
was younger, I was a bit more indecisive, but
I have been told since before I can remember
that working hard means more options, so
that is exactly what I decided to do.
Now, my dues have been paid I have
done my best to attain a competitive SAT
score as well as GPA and its time to
decide where Im going to spend the next
four years. I always thought that somewhere
along the line, I would come across my
dream school and hoped my efforts were
enough to earn an acceptance letter. But in
the past few months, as application deadlines

Best bets

We live in inationary times.
Whereas in the past, you could use mere
character actors to ll the roles in a James
Bond movie, today the CVs of its cast mem-
bers apparently need to be a little more, shall
we say, robust.
The customary guns, gals and gadgets are
still aplenty in Skyfall, the latest addition to
the 007 canon. But unlike before, the credits
are lled with a top shelf parade of Oscar
and BAFTA winners including Judi Dench,
Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Javier
Imagine if you will, the next set of Star
Wars movies featuring Meryl Streep
and Daniel Day Lewis. Directed by
Terrence Malick. Skyfalls casting
feels like a little overkill.
But the audience certainly benets.
Dont let the high-rent names dissuade you
from seeing it. Its still a popcorn movie. Lady
Macbeth isnt your Bond girl. And there is a
martini sighting. Shaken, even.
Director Sam Mendes an Oscar winner
(American Beauty), of course leverages
this embarrassment of riches into a worthy
episode of James Bond, the 23rd installment.
In fact, for the rst time since Daniel Craig
took over the wheels of the Aston Martin six
years ago, the Bond franchise is proudly
returning to its roots.
Having nally established the role as his
own after two movies, Craig seems to feel free
to leaven Bonds intensely brooding persona
with much more sly humor.

Americas only covered picture
bridge, displaying 40 original oil
paintings of Californias natural
and man-made wonders, spans an
arroyo on the grounds of
Pasadenas Langham Huntington
Hotel in the foothills of Southern
Californias San Gabriel
Mountains. The 228-foot redwood
footbridge was built in 1913 by the
Huntingtons longtime general
manager and owner Stephen W.
Royce, who commissioned archi-
tect Myron Hunt to design a bridge
over an existing ravine to connect
the hotels main building with
newly built cottages. In 1932, a
hotel guest mentioned to Royce
that the bridge resembled Lucerne,
Switzerlands Kapellbrcke, a cov-
ered wooden truss footbridge,
noted for the 16th and 17th centu-
ry historical and religious paint-
ings on its triangular gables. Royce
decided to find an artist to create
California-inspired scenes for the
interior triangular spaces created
by his own bridges truss-support-
ed sloping roof. His search led him
to painter Frank Montague Moore.
The English-born Moore (1877-
1967), who studied at the
Liverpool Art School and the
Royal Institute, lived in New York
City and then Hawaii, where he
became the first director of the
Honolulu Museum of Art, before
moving to California. Once
retained by Royce, Moore worked
for a year in a studio on the
grounds of the Huntington, paint-
ing 41 works on Masonite. Some
panels depict natural wonders,
among them Cathedral Spires in
Yosemite; Midway Point on
Carmels Seventeen Mile Drive;
and Mt. Shasta from Grass Lake.
Others show the states man-made
beauty, including Mt. Wilsons
Observatory; Catalina Islands
Avalon Bay; and Long Beachs
Signal Hill Oil Wells at Sunset (a
sign of prosperity during the
Depression). Local Pasadena
scenes, including The Picture
Bridge itself, capture that commu-
nitys rich history. In 1933, the
paintings were set in place and
unveiled before admiring prome-
naders. Each painted panel is
accompanied by a poetic text panel
written by artist Moores close
friend, Donald Benson Blanding,
poet laureate of Hawaii and self-
described Artist, Actor, Poet and
In the late 1980s, the Huntington
Hotel underwent a massive recon-
struction and a new building,
almost exactly replicating the orig-
inal, opened in March 1991. The
Picture Bridge also required exten-
sive restoration, during which,
unfortunately, the painting of San
Francisco Bay and The Golden
Gate was lost, reducing the num-
ber of paintings to 40. In 1991, the
bridge was rededicated. For
decades, The Picture Bridge has
been both a popular daytime back-
drop for photographs and a softly
lit romantic evening spot. Current
hotel manager Michael Collins
said, As a famed Pasadena land-
mark for more than 100 years, The
Langham Huntington, Pasadena is
proud to have provided memories
for millions of guests in a tradition
of luxury and elegance.
the Langham Huntington can use
its Marin mountain bikes, helmets
and maps (arranged through the
hotel spa) to explore Pasadenas
notable residential architecture.
The Oak Knoll and Madison
Heights neighborhoods, both close
to the hotel and relatively level,
make for perfect outings. Once the
site of a sheep ranch owned by
Henry Huntington, Oak Knoll was
developed around 1906, just as the
Langham Huntington was being
built, and encompasses houses by
Charles and Henry Greene, George
Washington Smith and Arthur and
Alfred Heineman. Madison
Heights, built over orange groves
and farmland, also beginning in
1906, has houses by Charles and
Henry Greene, Louis B. Easton
and Frederick L. Roehrig.
Heritage, one of the oldest historic
preservation groups in Southern
California, offers expert guides to

from a simple Indiana farm colony
to the wealthiest resort community
in the United States during the
1920s. A two-hour Pasadena

White House or the House bends more on
its promises to voters. The outcome will affect
tens of millions of Americans, given that the
tax hikes and budgets cuts set to kick in Jan. 1
could spike unemployment and bring on a new
An exhausting presidential race barely his-
tory, Washington was back quickly to govern-
ing on deadline, with agreement on a crucial
goal but divisions on how to get there. The
campaign is over, but another has just begun.
The White House quickly turned Obamas
comments into an appeal for public support,
shipping around a video by email and telling
Americans that this debate can either stay
trapped in Washington or you can make sure
your friends and neighbors participate.
Obama invited the top four leaders of
Congress to the White House next week for
talks, right before he departs on a trip to Asia.
In laying their negotiating markers, all sides
sought to leave themselves wiggle room.
I dont want to box myself in. I dont want
to box anybody else in, Boehner said at the
Outside all the new the talk of openness, the
same hard lines seemed in place.
Obama never expressly said that tax rates on
top earners must return to the higher levels of
the Bill Clinton era, leading to speculation that
he was willing to soften the core position of
his re-election campaign to get a grand debt
deal with Republicans. Im not wedded to
every detail of my plan. Im open to compro-
mise, he said.
But his spokesman, Jay Carney, seemed to
slam that door. He said Obama would veto any
extension Congress might approve of tax cuts
on incomes above $250,000.
Obamas remarks were choreographed so
that a diverse-looking group of Americans
stood behind him and dozens more were invit-
ed to pack the East Room. In the weeks ahead,
he plans to pull in the public as a way to pres-
sure Congress.
I am not going to ask students and seniors
and middle class families to pay down the
entire decit while people like me, making
over $250,000, arent asked to pay a dime
more in taxes. Im not going to do that, said
He said voters plainly agreed with his
approach that both tax hikes and spending cuts
are needed to cut the debt.
Our job now is to get a majority in
Congress to reect the will of the American
people, Obama said.
About 60 percent of voters said in exit polls
Tuesday that taxes should increase, either for
everyone or those making over $250,000. Left
unsaid by Obama was that even more voters
opposed raising taxes to help cut the decit.
The scheduled year-end changes, widely
characterized as a dangerous scal cliff,
include a series of expiring tax cuts that were
approved in the George W. Bush administra-
tion. The other half of the problem is a set of
punitive across-the-board spending cuts,
looming only because partisan panel of law-
makers failed to reach a debt deal.
Put together, they could mean the loss of
roughly 3 million jobs.
Since the election, Boehner and Obama
have both responded to the reality that they
need each other.
Compromise has become mandatory if the
two leaders are to avoid economic harm and
the wrath of a public sick of government dys-
Obama says he is willing to talk about
changes to Medicare and Medicaid, earning
him the ire of the left. Boehner says he will
accept raising tax revenue and not just slash-
ing spending, although he insists it must be
done by reworking the tax code, not raising
rates. The framework, at least, is there for a
broad deal on taxes.
Yet the top Democrat and Republican in the
nation are trying to put the squeeze on each
other as the public waits for answers.
This is his opportunity to lead, Boehner
said of Obama, not long before the president
said: All we need is action from the House.
Obama said the uncertainty now spooking
investors and employers will be shrunk if
Congress extends quickly the tax cuts
for all those except the most-well off.
The Senate has passed such a bill. The
House showed no interest on Friday in
Obamas idea.
Obama and Republicans have tangled over
the Bush tax cuts for years. The president gave
in to Republican demands to extend the cuts
across the board in 2010, but he ran for re-
election on a pledge to allow the rates to
increase on families making more than
$250,000 a year.
Also lurking is the expiration of the nations
debt limit in the coming weeks. The last ght
on that nearly led the United States to default
on its bills.
When asked if he would try to use that issue
as leverage, Boehner said it must be addressed
sooner rather than later.
The national debt now stands above $16 tril-
lion. The government borrowed about 31 cents
of every dollar it spent in 2012.

NEW YORK David Hasselhoff still

Baywatch has been off the air for more
than a decade.
When Justin Bieber comes up and goes,
Hoff! and then Selena Gomez says, Its so
weird he loves you, its great. It just means
that youre hip and its cool, the 60-year-
old actor said in a recent interview.
Baywatch aired from 1989 to 2000.
Hasselhoff also starred in the TV series
Knight Rider, which aired from 1982 to
To stay part of the conversation,
Hasselhoff keeps busy and is always work-
ing. He stars in a Lifetime movie The
Christmas Consultant, opposite Caroline
Rhea, that airs Saturday (8 p.m. EST). He
will tweet backstage for MTV at Sundays
European Music Awards and play Captain
Hook in a Peter Pan pantomime in
December in Manchester, England.
Hasselhoff talks about his various proj-
ects, his famous name and his hopes for a
retro Knight Rider movie.
AP: Would you ever want to do a full-time
TV series again?
Hasselhoff: It depends what the series
would be. Ive been approached by some
dear friends who run The Office and Ugly
Betty about doing a sitcom, being a part of
an ensemble. Id love to do that. Id love to
bring back more than anything kind of like
Murder She Wrote, or theres a great show
in the U.K. called Lovejoy, or Hart to
Hart. Some shows that have got some fun,
(a) little tongue-and-cheek like Cary Grant,
and play my age but still know that secretly
(the character) is livin hard, livin fast and
lovin it because thats kind of where Im at
in my life.
AP: You can act, sing, perform on the stage
and judge talent competitions. Why do you
like variety?
Hasselhoff: I embrace everything. All I
want to do is be onstage. A performer needs
to perform. You need to work. I think thats
why Ive lasted so long. I grew up watching
The Carol Burnett Show. ... People are now
beginning to see that I do variety. I do sing.
I did do Broadway and the West End.
AP: Im sure you get a ton of offers. What
do you say no to?
Hasselhoff: I say no to things that I cant
laugh with where theyre laughing at me and
theyre trying to do something that is a little
bit over-the-edge. ... If you dont respect me
youre not gonna get that respect back.
AP: Does it ever amaze you how your last
name is so popular?
Hasselhoff: I think God has a sense of
humor because they wanted me to change it.
... I was going to change it one time to David
Michaels, but then I found out there was
already a David Michaels. I took so much
heat for the name Hasselhoff growing up,
Im gonna keep this name because I was
proud of my parents. Its kind of pathetic
because Hasselhoff has turned into The Hoff
and The Hoff is keeping Hasselhoff out of
work but The Hoffs paying the bills so I
welcome The Hoff.
AP: Theres a Knight Rider movie in
development. What can you say about it?
Hasselhoff: If you make the Knight
Rider movie and you dont make it retro
and you dont appeal to all the people that
love the show, that grew up with it. ... If you
dont, its not gonna be Knight Rider. It
will probably be a hit because Knight
Rider is a great title but it wont be Knight
Rider. ... Its in the hands of a company and
hopefully Ill meet with them and well see
what direction its going in.

you, as Jobs did? I had no clue, until a
few days ago. Over previous months, I
found myself exploring options for
joining the Peace Corps, the Navys
public relations program, travel abroad
programs basically everything I
could think of other than the typical
four-year university route. But I had
never really heard of someone choosing
something other than college until I had
a discussion with my art teacher about
the path she chose to take after high
After graduating from high school in
Newport Beach, she traveled to Israel
where she fell captive to the countrys
appeal and resided for about 10 years.
In opposition to the environment in
which she grew up, she was emerged in
a culture where the majority of citizens
shared the same faith as her, as well as
vocal strength (lets just say she is not a
teacher who is afraid to speak loudly).
After serving in the Israeli army, she
began to work on a farm. There, she
discovered that, despite her original dis-
interest in becoming a teacher, she
loved their craft and ultimately decided
to move to New York, study art and
later become an art teacher.
Although many people would not
choose to take the same path as she did,
it has taught me that choices may seem
unorthodox, but if you are pursuing
what makes you happy then they are
the correct choices for you. I believe,
eventually, everyone who has the
opportunity to attend college should
take advantage of that privilege; but, if
students have a dream to serve their
country in a branch of the armed forces,
submerge themselves in a culture to
learn the language and way of life or
merely take a year off to save up money
working in a local shop, I hope they
take a leap of faith and commit to their
dreams, which will hopefully aid them
in becoming more informed about both
the people they want to become and the
world as a whole.
Many students know less about their
ideals and beliefs when they graduate
high school than they would like, and if
you cant be sure of exactly what you
stand for and what your beliefs are then
it is extremely difcult to choose a eld
in which you will dedicate the rest of
your life. This is why I hope that stu-
dents start to take more time before
going to college to discover what makes
them happy and hopefully understand a
little bit more about themselves before
making a choice that will ultimately
determine the course of their lives.

Craigs evolution of Bond signicant-
ly improves his place in the 007 pan-
theon. Hes been a little too Jason
Bourne up until now.
The earlier Craig movies tried way too
hard to stie the clichs of the Bond
playbook. The writers, however, decide
to bring them back. Perhaps having all
these Masterpiece Theater actors was a
way of balancing out the corniness fac-
Further adding to the retro-feel of
Skyfall, the James Bond Theme song
is used heavily throughout the movie.
And the trippy opening credits are remi-
niscent of some the best title sequences
in Bond history. The main theme song
has pop star Adele channeling Shirley
Bassey, who performed most of the clas-
sic themes.
The plot well, the plot is a typical
spy mishmash, and theres no point in
reiterating the specics here. Due to
MGMs nancial troubles, the creators
had four years to write and rene (and
probably rene some more) the script.
And the aforementioned Thespian
Murderers Row lends a ton of depth to
the overarching themes.
One of the strong points of the story is
the glimpse it gives to Bonds origins.
The title of the movie refers to some-
thing from his past, which he is forced to
visit due to circumstances wrought by
his antagonist, played by Spanish actor
Javier Bardem.
The villain is, of course, usually what
makes a Bond movie. And Bardem does
his usual thing in playing Silva, a former
MI6 agent turned bad and out for
revenge against his former employers.
Hes no Jaws, but Silva is a worthy
adversary, although it may have been
more fun if Bardem had just resurrected
his role as the psychopath from No
Country for Old Men. Oddly enough,
he seemed to use the same bad hair-

Brosnan eras of the British spy. For a number of reasons,
Skyfall is her most notable Bond lm. For the rst time,
Dench isnt just dictating orders from headquarters, but is
thrown directly into the action when a former MI6 agent
(Javier Bardem) is bent on revenge against her.
Its very nice to be out from behind the desk, Dench said
in a recent interview by phone from London. Its extremely
nice to get a go in the eld, as it were, and get a bit of the
action. It made me feel very grown-up. Its not just the fellas
who are spinning about and shooting guns I get a go.
As soon as Dench entered the world of Bond, she made it
clear she was a force to be reckoned with certainly not one
that some gun-toting playboy would push around. Introducing
herself to Bond in 1995s Goldeneye, the bourbon-drinking
M promptly informs Brosnans Bond that she isnt a bean-
counter, as Bond admits to thinking.
Good, because I think youre a sexist, misogynist
dinosaur, retorts M. A relic of the Cold War, whose boyish
charms, though wasted on me, obviously appealed to the
young lady I sent out to evaluate you.
She then states she has the balls to send Bond to his death,
if need be.
A man saying that to Bond is one thing, but a woman say-
ing that to him was quite another, says Dench.
Partly because of that scene, Dench considered the role a
cracking one. She says she didnt then realize the import
many would assign to a woman playing M, or the length that
her service would turn out to be. Her husband, the late Michael
Williams, cheered the decision: He thought living with a
Bond woman was very exciting.
So over seven lms and 17 years, the 77-year-old Dench
a revered Shakespearian actress of the British stage and lms
such as Notes on a Scandal and Shakespeare in Love
has, like other legendary stage actors from Alec Guinness
(Star Wars) to Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings), become
best known to many for a blockbuster movie franchise.
Dench inherited the role of M from Robert Brown, who
played the character from 1983s Octopussy through 1989s
License to Kill. Bernard Lee whom Dench calls a hero of
hers initiated Ian Flemings secret service head, playing
him for 11 films, from 1962s Dr. No to 1979s
Moonraker. (John Huston and Edward Fox also sat in for M
for a lm each.)
Skyfall director Sam Mendes previously worked with
Dench when he was a hotshot 24-year-old director mounting
The Cherry Orchard in the West End.
She was the rst bona de great actor I had ever worked
with, says Mendes. I learned more from watching her, the
way she worked, than I ever had before. She would never think
of herself as a teacher. She has too much humility and too
much grace to consider herself to be knowledgeable. But in
fact, it wasnt about what she said, it was about how she con-
ducted herself, how she rehearsed, how she thought about the
play, her dedication to the play and the audience, her work
Dench recalls Mendes as very knowledgeable at the time.
I remember saying to him, Could I possibly try something
one way? And he said, You can but it wont work, says
Dench. When my opportunity came in this lm, he suggested
something to me and I said, Well I can do that but it wont

screen 50 years ago,
he never wants to
look out-of-date.
C o s t u m e
designer Jany
Temime says
her mantra for
the wardrobe
of the latest
Bond lm,
S k y f a l l ,
which opens
Friday, was
iconic for
Its like she was
shopping for peo-
ple she knows
even if they are c-
tional characters
instead of creating a
wardrobe for a movie, she
I didnt follow fashion, I followed the
script. But I know these characters, and I
know what he or she would wear and why.
I really tried to ask, What would that
character really buy? Temime said.
Suits, lots of them, and most by Tom
Ford, were high on the list for Daniel
Craig, who is taking his third turn as
Bond and is known to favor Fords
clothing both on-screen as Bond and
in his personal life.
In my rst meeting with Daniel, he
told me what he wanted: He wanted
slim-tting clothing that was
easy to move (in), but I also
got the feeling he wanted a
slightly 60s look, Temime
Roger Moore, who played
Bond in seven lms through
the 1970s and 80s, says
some of his ared trousers
and wide-collared shirts
wouldnt cut it today, but
some of the suits, and
especially the tuxedos
and dinner jackets,
probably would.
Unfortunately, he
isnt wearing them
now. Those outts
were made 20 or
30 years ago, and
waistlines change.
I did, at the time,
enjoy the
wardrobe, but I also
developed a taste for the good food and
wine Bond liked, Moore says with a
Moores book Bond on Bond was
published last month (Lyons Press), and it
devotes a chapter to 007s dapper style.
Sean Connery, who played Bond rst in
1962, favored skinny-lapel gray suits that
hold up well over time. The same cannot
be said of the terry cloth romper he wore
on the set of Goldnger.
Pierce Brosnan wore a British Royal
Navy uniform for the role, and most
Bonds don a swimsuit at some point.
Athletic and sporty clothes actually pose a
bit of a problem, Temime says, because
they dont look as sexy as Bond should.
Generally, though, Bond has a fairly
restrained style because he doesnt want
to draw too much attention to himself.
Moore quotes Bond author Ian Fleming
in The Man With the Golden Gun,
where the clothes were described as
dark-blue single-breasted suit, white
shirt, thin black knitted silk tie, and black
casuals as his usual rig.
That look came easily for the Savile
Row tailors in London where Bond prob-
ably would have purchased his clothes.
By the time Brosnan took over the role
in 1995, the Italian fashion house Brioni
was making the suits, explains Angelo
Petrucci, the labels master tailor,
although they were done in the English
style with longer jackets and higher rises
instead of the Roman style, which would
have more tapered legs and shorter rises.

come, Lorri Basques said of their for-
mer location. [Burlingame] has always
been a nice place to be, but we were on
the side street so every single day, even
if we were there for 25 years wed get a
I didnt know you were here. It was
hard for people to find us, Lorri
Basques said. So were praying that the
Burlingame Avenue address and actually
being on it helps people nd us. This
street is really busy. So all those little
footsteps I think will make all the differ-
Anthony Basques Sr. fell in love with
candy during the Great Depression
when he took up a second job with
Ramada Candy Company learning the
sweet science of candy making. After
opening his first shop on Ocean
Avenue in San Francisco and later
being forced to close because of sugar
rationing, Basques Sr. went to work for
Sees Candies as its head confectioner
from 1941 to 1944. Aida first opened
her doors in 1947 on Mission Street in
the Excelsior district of San Francisco.
In the 30s, during the Depression,
my father had two jobs, Tony Basques
said. He would make candy during the
day and play music at night. He was a
professional musician [and] he had a
favorite opera, and it was called Aida
Opera, Giuseppe Verdis, Aida.
The Basques family moved the shop
from its location on Mission Street to
Burlingame in 1986 under its second
generation of ownership. Tony Basques
ran the store with his late wife and
daughter Lorri.
Big inuence on the store, my grand-
ma, Cary Selsback said of his family.
They (his mom and grandmother) spent
a lot of time together growing up, and
she spent a lot of time in the store when
she was a child. She developed this
absolute love. And me, I mean, candys
cool but I liked spending time with her. I
really enjoy that, thats my passion.
Aidas newest location will be run by
Lorri and her son Cary. Cary is the head
candy maker and his grandfather feels
its the right t.
Cary started helping me in the
kitchen and not only did he watch but he
can create my fathers recipes, Tony
Basques said. He can create his own
pieces of candy like my father, my father
would be so pleased to see him. Hes got
the candy man special.
Both Lorri and Carys passion for their
family business has taken some of the
pressure off of Tony Basques, who will
be transferring ownership to them. All
three are eager for Aida to open her
doors again.
I think we will probably stay with
whats worked for us our chocolates
and we have no problem creating or
making something, Tony Basques said
of Aidas uniqueness.
Lorri and Cary will run the shop in its
newest location, which is still under ren-
ovation. The familys goal is to be open
in early November.
We are committed to continuing the
tradition of the mom and pop store,
Tony Basques said. We feel so grateful
and dedicated to the customer base that
we have that its more than just hoping
that were going to have customers, its
welcoming them back.
Aida will change its hours upon
reopening: Monday through Wednesday
10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Thursday through
Saturday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Sunday noon
to 4 p.m. For more information on Aida

and increase parking in-lieu fees for new
businesses in the area from the current
$9,000 per space to a gure closer to
what constructing a new parking space
actually cost, about $30,000.
The plans second phase will include a
study of where and for how long the
citys current parking spaces are used to
develop new time limits and enforce-
ment hours; to revise the parking permit
program in the area; and look for tech-
nology to meet downtown parking
The nal phase will be to select the
next site for parking expansion down-
town; update the cost proposed for a new
parking structure including land acquisi-
tion, soft costs and construction; and
adopt a parking expansion schedule and
funding plan to support construction of
the proposed new parking structure such
as the development of a multi-year park-
ing rate plan.
The plan is being developed by the
citys Public Works Department.
The city has about 2,800 parking
spaces downtown in five parking
garages, four parking lots and street
parking. It also has 688 parking meters
and 65 multi-space pay stations and
The limited amount of capital funds
available along with the current
demands for the existing parking rev-
enue has made it impossible to accumu-
late sufficient funds for the parking
expansion to meet future demand,
according to a staff report to the citys
Public Works Commission.
Parking downtown nets the city about
$2 million a year, although it costs the
city about the same for parking enforce-
ment and security, maintenance and lot
cleaning, according to the staff report.
The previous downtown parking man-
agement plan was developed in 2003.
The Public Works Commission will
consider the parking plan at its next
meeting, 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 14,
City Hall, 330 W. 20th Ave., San Mateo.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Instead of learning
a lesson from a painful mistake, there is a strong
likelihood that you would make the same one all over
again. Stop and think before you do or say anything.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If at all possible,
try to avoid the company of a friend who is famous
for his or her bad mood swings. This person could
turn a pleasant day into a bummer in two shakes.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You might hope to
be an achiever, but if you havent had any success,
you must frst be persistent and then be prepared to
regroup over and over again until you succeed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Its time to disengage
from procedures and concepts that have thus far
proven to be unsuccessful. Use your imagination to
design something different that works.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Dont be unwisely
infuenced into following the bad example of a free-
spending companion. Foolish extravagance would
cause you all kinds of problems that you dont need.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Regardless of how
tough the job, be prepared to go it alone should it be
necessary. Those on whom you are depending arent
likely to be available when you need them.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Instead of applying your
ingenuity to the task at hand, you might choose to try
to fgure out ways of passing the responsibility onto
someone else. Dont be a shirker.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It isnt likely that the
odds will be in your favor when speculative risks are
involved, so move forward very cautiously. What you
consider to be a mere gamble could be a huge wager.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Its imperative that you
get off to a good start in an important endeavor. A
mismanaged beginning is likely to be the precursor
for a bad ending.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Before you forward any im-
portant information to another, be absolutely certain
you have all the facts straight. Something important
could be lost in the transmission if you dont.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone who hasnt
been managing his or her own fnancial affairs too
well might try to offer you some advice on how you
should handle your own. This is likely to be some-
thing you can do without.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Be extra mindful of your
behavior when in the presence of people whom you
dont want to make a bad impression on. If you say
something wrong, it could be very diffcult to eradicate

THE SAN Bruno Planning Commission will meet Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at 7:00 p.m., at the Senior Cen-
ter, 1555 Crystal Springs Blvd., San Bruno, CA and take action on the following items. All interested persons
are invited to attend.
Transit Corridors Plan. The Planning Commission will consider recommending certification of the Final Envi-
ronmental Impact Report, recommending amendment of the General Plan and recommending approval of the
Transit Corridors Plan to the City Council.
The proposed Transit Corridors Plan sets forth a new vision of an urban village and regional destination for the
Transit Corridors Area, located in the core of the City, including the following streets: San Mateo Avenue (in-
cluding the downtown area), El Camino Real, San Bruno Avenue and Huntington Avenue. The proposed
Transit Corridors Plan will be a policy document designed to implement the General Plan and encourage in-
vestment through clear policies for development. The Plan would establish development standards and design
guidelines for public and private realm improvements, a set of transportation and related infrastructure im-
provements, and implementation strategies to achieve the new vision. The Transit Corridors Plan is intended to
guide the Citys decision-making process in the Transit Corridors Area for the next 20 years.
The Plan vision includes the following elements:
1. Promote downtown as a day and night destination
2. Enhance local character and distinctive identity
3. Create a convenient multi-modal transportation network
4. Promote economic vitality
5. Encourage sustainable, mixed-use development with new housing and retail
6. Develop a safe and inviting pedestrian realm
The proposed Transit Corridors Plan is the result of a planning process which began in 2008, and included sig-
nificant public outreach, including a series of Steering Committee meetings, community workshops and City
Council and Planning Commission meetings. The Planning Commission held a public hearing on April 17, 2012
to discuss the Draft Environmental Impact Report where public testimony was heard.
Adoption of the Transit Corridors Plan would involve the following changes to the General Plan:
1. Change the Land Use Classification of 191 parcels from Central Business District to Transit Oriented Devel-
opment. This area is located on San Mateo Avenue from El Camino Real to San Bruno Avenue and on El Ca-
mino Real from Crystal Springs Avenue to the Angus Avenue East (not including Civic Center area).
2. Change the Land Use Classification of 39 parcels from Low Density Residential to Transit Oriented Develop-
ment. This area is located along the edges of the Transit Corridors Area along San Bruno Avenue, El Camino
Real, and the Station Area.
3. Change the Land Use Classification of 5 parcels from Combining Industrial to Transit Oriented Development.
This area is located on San Mateo Avenue north of Walnut Street.
4. Change the Land Use Classification of 3 parcels from Regional Commercial to Transit Oriented Develop-
ment. This area is located on Huntington Avenue near Sneath Lane.
5. Change the Transit Oriented Development Land Use Classification to allow 2.0 maximum FAR combined for
residential and/or non-residential for parcels less than 20,000 square feet and no maximum FAR for parcels of
20,000 square feet or larger. This change would apply to the entire Transit Corridors Area. (New residential de-
velopment will be prohibited on most of Huntington Avenue and San Bruno Avenue east of the Caltrain tracks
due to airport noise restrictions. This is a current restriction that will remain in place.)
6. Within the Transit Oriented Development Land Use Classification, remove the site-specific residential densi-
ty limit and implement an overall limit of 1,610 dwelling units for the entire Plan area. The intensity of each
project would be determined by the development standards, such as height, setback, and stepback. (The
building heights required to reach this residential limit would require a public vote under Ordinance 1284.)
7. Within the Transportation Element, add language recommending study of the reduction of travel lanes on
Huntington Avenue and San Bruno Avenue, and the potential for roundabouts at San Mateo Avenue and Hun-
tington Avenue.
8. Minor text and table updates within the Land Use Element and Transportation Element.
An Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was prepared as required by the California Environmental Quality Act.
The EIR identified potentially significant impacts that can be mitigated related to aesthetics, air quality, and hy-
drology and water quality. There are six impacts that are considered significant and unavoidable, which are re-
lated to traffic, noise, and historical buildings. In order to approve the Plan with unavoidable impacts, the City
Council must adopt a Statement of Overriding Considerations.
Copies of the proposed Transit Corridors Plan & Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) are available for
public review and inspection at the San Bruno Community Development Department & City Clerks Office lo-
cated at 567 El Camino Real in San Bruno, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., or at the San Bruno
Public Library during operating hours Monday through Friday, exclusive of holidays. The documents are also
available online at
Agenda packets, which include staff reports and other pertinent documents for the Planning Commission meet-
ing, will be available after 4:00 p.m., Friday, November 16, 2012, at the Community Development Department
office located at 567 El Camino Real, San Bruno, and can be viewed online at
