From Samaritan House to San Quentin
By Sally Schilling
John Kelly said he just sort of
fell into a life of community serv-
ice. His desire to help others led
him down many different career
He was a priest, a teacher and
dean at Serra High School, and
later the founding director of the
Samaritan House in San Mateo
He taught kids English and Latin
at Serra and helped grow the
Samaritan House — which now
provides a wide range of basic
needs — into a strong human serv-
ices agency serving the most
needy in San Mateo County.
Through teaching and working
at the Samaritan House, he
learned how to address the needs
of a community. He had a window
into the world of those who were
deeply struggling, but had never
thought about society’s chal-
lenges in terms of the criminal
population, that is until he visit-
ed San Quentin State Prison.
Afriend invited him to conduct a
spiritual weekend at the prison.
“My first reaction was, ‘who in
the world would want to go into
San Quentin State Prison?’” he
He grew more skeptical of visit-
ing the prison when he heard that
Local community activist works for restorative justice
John Kelly, former director of the Samaritan House, advocates for
rehabilitation services for the incarcerated.
“My first reaction was,‘who in the world
would want to go into San Quentin State Prison?’
... After that one weekend, I decided I was home.”

ing, majestic view of Linda Mar
Beach and the Pacific Ocean, and
you’ll probably agree that Pacifica
has finally become the destination

Forget a wing and a prayer — an injured
red-tailed hawk got a new lease on life from
a Peninsula Humane Society veterinarian
who amputated one digit from the bird’s left
foot in a short but unusual procedure.
A Good Samaritan brought the bird to
PHS/SPCA July 21 after finding it strug-
gling on the ground in a marshy area of
unincorporated Redwood City. The Wildlife
Rescue Center staff cleaned the sewage-cov-
ered raptor and discovered its one digit was
fractured and dislocated. When the injury
wouldn’t heal, staff decided that removal was
the best option. Dr. Sarah Currie performed
the amputation in a 15-minute surgery
Thursday afternoon at the Burlingame
Center For Compassion that required a little
improvisation to accommodate the bird’s
small mouth. The staff used a mask for dogs,
stretched a rubber glove over the end, then
cut a small hole in the rubber, so the seal
would be tight around the beak, said
PHS/SPCAspokesman Scott Delucchi.
The hawk will be monitored for days or
even weeks to ensure the digit stump heals
and it has no further problems with flight,
perching or hunting.
The outermost digit removed isn’t crucial
for grabbing prey or perching, according to
Without intervention, the talon would
continue to grow, most likely curling into
tissue, and PHS/SPCAstaff believed it would
be a “painful annoyance” for the hawk.

Louis John Poletti
August 18, 1916
August 5, 2013
Resident of Hillsborough
Beloved and devoted father of Kathy Costaglio
(Frank), Paul Poletti (Sue) and Richard
Poletti (Shelly). Cherished grandfather of
Christina, Michael and David Costaglio, Mary
Poletti, John, Natalie, Louis and William
Poletti and Alexandria Luba.
Lou embraced every day with passion and
lived life to the fullest. He touched so many
lives with his generosity and kind heart. He
truly lived the American Dream!
Lou was born in Colma of first generation Italian decent.
Growing up, he attended Jefferson Grammar School and High
School. After finishing his first year of high school, he went
to work at his brother Rick’s barbershop on San Pedro Road
and at age 17 became the owner from 1934-1941. During WWII,
from early 1941 to late 1945, he served in the Merchant Marines
throughout the Pacific and had two brief voyages to the East
Coast via the Panama Canal. In 1948, he married Natalia “Jean”
Cabral and they were blessed with three children. In the early
years they lived in a small cottage Lou built in Colma next to
the house he grew up in with his mother. In 1956 they moved to
San Bruno and in 1967 Lou moved his family to Hillsborough.
About a year after his wife’s passing on June 2, 2009, four days
shy of their 61st wedding anniversary, he moved from his home
of 43 years to his current residence in San Mateo.
(Perry) “Como, (the singer), isn’t the only barber who made good …”
Lou was a man who singly did more to transform the hills and
tidelands of Northern San Mateo County into centers of dynamic
industries. He was a real estate broker, developer, insurance man
and founder of Industrial Savings and Loan.
He began his real estate career in 1952 and established Poletti
Realty in 1956, which is now owned by his son, Richard. Lou
had continued to have an active role in the real estate business
up until his final days. Lou’s unparalleled business sense and
creative ideas helped make South San Francisco what it is today.
He has been honored with countless awards and on December
9, 2009 had a street, Poletti Way, named after him. There are so
many major projects that he was involved with, it is difficult to
pick out any one, but what started it all was his development of
17 acres of unusable utility land located between South Airport
Boulevard and Highway 101. Lou was able to turn this swamp
land into the first and only industrial park in
town. As a result of that success he was asked
to develop and list Produce Avenue and San
Mateo Avenue, among many others. Lou was
a leader of the South Airport Industrial Park
Project, also known as Beacon Street. He was
responsible for the development of 55 acres
by Utah Construction Company, which had
tremendous bearing on the progress that the
City of South San Francisco has made since.
His company was and continues to be one
of the most highly respected, independent
industrial real estate brokerages in Northern
California. Lou’s respect and appreciation for
the dignity and potential of each individual has
been the hallmark of his service and his legacy to the community.
He was an active supporter of the South San Francisco community
as well as numerous non-profit organizations. He was passionate
about politics on all levels and generously contributed across the
board to countless campaigns, local, state and nationwide.
Lou and his wife Jean loved to travel with friends and family,
visiting his homeland several times and many other beautiful
destinations around the world. They were avid thoroughbred
horse owners and breeders. They often attended the races to
cheer on their horses to the winner’s circle, most notably Love
Avie. Sharp minded and a genius with numbers, Lou put his
talent and passion to good use with great success in the stock
market as a favorite hobby. As an avid duck hunter for 65 years
he enjoyed many good times with his friends and family. Lou
was an amazing storyteller. He captivated his audience not only
by recalling details and dates with great accuracy but also by
the emotion he expressed while telling the story. Family was
most important to Lou and hosting Sunday family dinners was
his favorite.
When Lou turned 95 his family put his picture and a happy
birthday wish on a billboard on Highway 101. It came as no
surprise to the locals that Lou’s presence in SSF would now and
forever be truly larger than life. We will always remember him as
a true gentleman, dressed to the nines with perfect white hair,
topped off with his favorite fedora.
Family and friends are invited to the Rosary on Monday, August
12, 2013 at 7:00pm at Our Lady of Angels and to the Funeral Mass
on Tuesday, August 13, 2013 at 10:30am, also held at our Lady of
Angels, 1721 Hillside Drive, Burlingame.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the
Mills Peninsula Hospital Foundation for the Cancer Fund, 1501
Trousdale Drive, Burlingame, CA 94010 in memory of Louis Poletti.

Coastside tsunami
sirens to be replaced
Aroutine test of the county’s coast-
side tsunami warning sirens Wednesday
revealed that only three of eight per-
formed correctly, prompting sheriff’s
officials to speed up a replacement
The project is now planned to begin
Aug. 12 and is slated for completion in
time for a monthly test scheduled for
Sept. 4, according to sheriff’s officials.
During the replacement of the eight
sirens, the Office of Emergency
Services has developed a set of proce-
dures to ensure the public will be noti-
fied. The plans involve having addi-
tional sheriff’s deputies and police offi-
cers from throughout the county
respond to the coastside should a
Tsunami warning need to be issued. The
additional law enforcement officers will
provide announcements to the public
and neighborhoods. The sirens are
only one part of the notification sys-
tem available. If a Tsunami warning is
issued, notifications will be sent using
SMC Alert, digital email, cellphone
text messaging, telephone notification
system to standard residential and busi-
ness telephones and the Emergency
Broadcast System through commercial
radio and television announcements,
according to sheriff’s officials.

CASCADE, Idaho — A child’s
body found in a burning house in
Southern California is an 8-year-
old boy whose mother was killed
and whose sister is believed to
have been abducted by a family
friend, a sheriff’s officials said
The San Diego County Sheriff’s
Department said its crime labora-
tory has identified the body as 8-
year-old Ethan Anderson.
A brief statement Friday night
said that investigators identified
the charred body through DNA
extracted from the boy’s bone
The body was
found Sunday
along with the
body of the
boy’s mother

Ethan’s 16-
year-old sister
Hannah Anderson remains missing,
and the search for her and her alleged
kidnapper is focused on Idaho.
Authorities throughout the West
have been looking for the teen and
James Lee DiMaggio, 40, since
the bodies of Christina Anderson
and the previously unidentified
boy were found Sunday at
DiMaggio’s burned home near the
Mexican border, about 65 miles
east of San Diego.
DiMaggio was close to the fam-
i l y. Brett Anderson, Christina
Anderson’s husband and the father
of Ethan and Hannah Anderson,
has described him as a best friend
and said his children thought of
him as an uncle.
Sheriff: Burned body ID’d as missing California boy
By Michelle Durand
The South San Francisco foster
mom accused of burning her then-
20-month-old ward with bleach-
soaked diapers pleaded no contest
Friday to misdemeanor child
The crime carries up to a year in
jail but the actual amount Patricia
Anne Moore, 68, faces when sen-
tenced Sept. 24 was not immedi-
ately available.
The negotiated settlement came
more than two years after a judge
dismissed the original case
against Moore for lack of evi-
dence. That turn of events in May
2011 surprised prosecutors who
last fall took the case back to a
criminal grand
jury who
returned an
indictment on
felony charges
of willful cruel-
ty to a child and
infliction of
injury on a
child. The
i n d i c t m e n t
sidestepped a preliminary hearing
which is the stage at which Judge
Richard Livermore declined to
hold Moore to answer.
District Attorney Steve
Wagstaffe said refiling the case and
convening the grand jury were
still worth the effort even if the
case settled for a lesser charge.
“We are still holding her
accountable,” Wagstaffe said,
adding that he understands Moore
has a lot of remorse.
Defense attorney May Mar could
not be reached for comment.
However, Wagstaffe said Mar
brought his office new informa-
tion about Moore’s relationship
to the child’s family and where
facts of the case could be proven.
“This is a reasonable outcome
based on what I can see,”
Wagstaffe said.
The prosecution’s plea offer was
set to expire Friday if Moore had
not accepted.
The endangerment charge means
a person is accused of acting neg-
ligently in a way that is likely to
result in physical injury or death
rather than acting more knowing-
l y, such as a deliberate blow.
South San Francisco police first
arrested Moore in August 2010
after hospital staff tending to the
toddler alerted authorities that the
child had first- and second-degree
burns on her buttocks. According
to prosecutors, Moore later told
authorities she used bleach-soaked
diapers to clean the child who
soiled herself quite often. After
Moore’s adult daughter brought
the girl to the South San Francisco
Kaiser Medical Center for care,
doctors allegedly noted the burns
were in a waffle pattern like that of
diaper fabric. Moore allegedly
also could not explain why, if the
girl had been bathed, she didn’t
have burns on other parts of her
body that would have been sub-
merged, such as her legs.
Moore remains free from cus-
tody on $50,000 bail.

Man pleads guilty in
Paula Deen extortion case
SAVANNAH, Ga. — A New York
man pleaded guilty in federal court
Friday to trying to extort $200,000
from Paula Deen by threatening to
reveal damaging information about
the embattled celebrity cook if she
didn’t pay him to stay quiet.
“I had, I guess, some bad judg-
ment,” 62-year-old Thomas George
Paculis told a U.S. District Court
judge in Savannah. “I do take respon-
sibility for what I have done.”
Paculis, of Newfield, acknowl-
edged sending emails to Deen’s
attorney offering to trade his
silence for cash in June. It came a
few days after documents became
public that revealed the former Food
Network star had said under oath
that she used racial slurs in the past.

Crews searching for missing investigator find body
OAKLAND — Authorities found a woman’s body on

It was found by Contra Costa County
sheriff’s search and rescue teams in a
woodsy area near Laguna Valley Park in
Vacaville, as crews searched for 50-year-
old Sandra Coke of Oakland.
The search for Coke was ended after the discovery, and
authorities remained tight-lipped about what led dozens of
local, state and federal investigators to the area.

On Thursday, Oakland police identified Coke’s former

High-speed rail: Environmental law does not apply
SACRAMENTO — California’s high-speed rail project is
no longer subject to the state’s rigorous environmental
laws after a federal transportation board ruled that it has
oversight of the project, the state attorney general’s office
argues in a brief filed Friday.
The June decision by the federal Surface Transportation
Board — which was sought by opponents of the bullet train
— pre-empts the authority of the California Environmental
Quality Act, or CEQA, the state claims in the filing made on
behalf of the California High-Speed Rail Authority argued.
“The STB’s decision concluding it has jurisdiction over
the entire high-speed train system fundamentally affects the
regulatory environment for the project going forward,” the
state claims in a filing with the Third District Court of
Appeals based in Sacramento.
Opponents of the project could lose one of their most sig-
nificant legal tools if a federal judge agrees with the state’s
argument. Critics of the rail line have repeatedly sued the
state alleging violations of CEQA.

SACRAMENTO — Students at nearly
250 California schools posted photos
on social media websites while they
were taking standardized tests, again
prompting questions about testing
security, state education officials said.

“It looks to us as though most of
these postings were about gaining
some attention and communication
with peers, and not an active (attempt)
to try to game the system in terms of
the assessment,” Sigman said.
In addition to photos revealing test
questions or answers, Sigman said
other posts by students at 242 schools
depicted things unlikely to jeopardize
exam results, such as test booklet cov-
ers or “bubble art,” which she described
as students filling in bubbles to craft a
The Sacramento Bee first reported

are now flagged with a red warning mes-

“a security breach involving social

states: “Caution should be used when
interpreting these results.”
Results from the 16 schools where
students posted actual test content also
included the warning that the school’s
accountability rating could be impact-
ed. Those schools also could become
ineligible for academic awards.
The department will be releasing its
statewide accountability reports within
the next few weeks.
Among the 16 schools linked to
postings of test materials is San
Francisco’s Lowell High School, a
high-achieving public magnet school.

Barack Obama signs the bipartisan student loans bill in the Oval Office of the White House.
By Josh Lederman and Philip Elliott
WASHINGTON — President Barack
Obama signed into law Friday a measure
restoring lower interest rates for student
loans, pledging the hard-fought compro-
mise would be just the first step in a broader,
concerted fight to rein in the costs of a col-
lege education.
Encircled by lawmakers from both parties
in the Oval Office, Obama praised Democrats
and Republicans alike for agreeing — final-
ly — on what he called a sensible, reason-
able approach to student loans even as he
cautioned that “our job is not done.”
“Feels good signing bills. I haven’t done
this in a while,” Obama said, alluding to the
difficulty he’s faced getting Congress, par-
ticularly the Republican-controlled House,
to approve his legislative priorities, such
as gun control and budget deals.
“Hint, hint,” he added to laughter.
But even the feel-good moment at the
White House came with reminders of the bit-
ter partisanship that still makes future deals
incredibly difficult for Obama. House
Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, called the
law part of the “Republican jobs plan,”
while House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi
of California said it “stands in stark contrast
to the House Republicans’ plan to saddle
families with billions more in student
The rare compromise emerged only after a
frenzy of summer negotiations, with law-
makers at odds over how loan rates should
be set in the future even while they agreed
that a doubling of rates — it kicked in July
1 when Congress failed to act before the
deadline — would be bad policy and bad
news for students.
The legislation links student loan interest
rates to the financial markets. It offers lower
rates this fall because the government can
borrow money cheaply at this time. If the
economy improves in the coming years as
expected, it will become more costly for the
government to borrow money, and that cost
would be passed on to students.
About 11 million students this year are
expected to have lower interest rates, sav-
ing the average undergraduate $1,500 on
interest charges on this year’s loans.
Boehner called it “a good day” and a fine
example of what Washington can accom-
plish when petty partisanship is put aside.
“With the stroke of a pen, we’ve now offi-
cially taken the politics out of student
loans,” he said.
Obama signs student loan
deal, says it’s just first step
By Julie Pace
WASHINGTON — Responding to critics,
President Barack Obama promised on Friday
to work with Congress on “appropriate
reforms” for the domestic surveillance pro-
grams that have stirred criticism at home
and abroad. He also said it is time to recali-
brate the United States’ relationship with
Russia, which is harboring NSA secrets
leaker Edward Snowden.
“It’s not enough for me to have confidence
in these programs,” the president declared
of NSA domestic intelligence-gathering
programs at a White House news conference,
one day before his scheduled departure on a
weeklong vacation. “The American people
have to have confidence in them as well.”
The president announced a series of
changes in a program begun under the anti-
terror Patriot Act that was passed in the wake
of the attacks of Sept, 11, 2001. But none of
the moves would alter the basic core of the
program, the collection of millions of
Americans’ phone records.
As for Snowden, recently granted tempo-
rary asylum by Russia, Obama said he is not
a patriot, as some have suggested, and chal-
lenged him to return to the United States to
face espionage charges.
On Russia, Obama said that given recent
differences over Syria, human rights and
Snowden, it is “probably appropriate for us
to take a pause, reassess where it is that
Russia is going ... and recalibrate the rela-
The hour-long news conference ranged
over numerous issues, although the presi-
dent became especially animated when the
questions turned to Republicans in
Congress. He said they would risk the wrath
of the public if they vote to shut down the
government this fall in an attempt to cut off
funding for his signature health care law.
And on another congressional issue, he
said that while he was open to House
Republicans proposing an alternative
immigration bill, his preference was for a
vote on a Senate-passed measure that would
combine border security with a chance at cit-
izenship for millions of immigrants living
in the country illegally.
He said he was “absolutely certain” such a
bill would pass in the GOP-controlled U.S.
He did not mince words about the United
States’ deteriorating relationship with
Russia. He said President Vladimir Putin’s
recent decision to grant asylum to Snowden
was merely the latest in a series of differ-
ences between the two countries, including
a response to the Syrian civil war and to
human rights issues.

NEW YORK — CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta
says he spoke too soon in opposing the
medical use of marijuana in the past and
that he now believes the drug can have
very real benefits for people with specif-
ic health problems.
Gupta, the network’s chief medical cor-
respondent and a brain surgeon, detailed
his change of heart in an interview Friday
and in an article for CNN’s website titled,
“Why I changed my mind on weed.” He
will narrate a documentary on the topic
that will air on the network Sunday.
He wrote in Time magazine in 2009
about his opposition to laws that would
make the drug available for medical pur-
poses. “Smoking the
stuff is not going to do
your health any good,”
he wrote then. But
Gupta said Friday he too
easily associated mari-
juana with “malingerers
that just wanted to get
hi gh. ”
Now he wants to say
he’s sorry.
Gupta said he didn’t look hard enough at
research on the topic, and found some new
research that had been done since then. He
was encouraged to look into the issue fur-
ther upon meeting a 5-year-old girl in
Colorado for whom medical marijuana has
sharply cut down on the amount of
seizures she had been suffering.

WASHINGTON — The Postal Service
said Friday that it trimmed its losses to
$740 million over the last three
months by consolidating processing
facilities, cutting hours for workers and
post offices and reducing workers’ com-
pensation costs.
Still, year-to-date, the Postal Service
had losses totaling $3.9 billion, and
the agency said that without help from

The report for the financial quarter
ending June 30 comes as Congress con-
siders proposals to fix the agency’s
finances. The agency lost $16 billion
last year and is trying to restructuring
its retail, delivery and mail-processing
Over the first nine months of its fiscal
year, the Postal Service said 104 mail
processing facilities were consolidated,
career employee work hours were
reduced by about 41 million and operat-
ing hours at 7,397 post offices were
The service wants to end most
Saturday and door-to-door mail deliv-
ery. It also is seeking to reduce its con-
gressionally mandated $5.6 billion
annual payment for future retiree health
benefits. The agency says ending
Saturday mail delivery would save $2
billion each year.
Joe Corbett, the agency’s chief finan-
cial officer, said in a statement that
“without comprehensive postal reform
legislation signed into law, our hands
are tied and we expect multibillion dol-
lar annual losses to continue.”
The third-quarter loss was far less
than its $5.2 billion loss for the
same period last year. Postal offi-
cials said its cost-cutting and effi-
ciency moves helped lower losses,
along with a $918 million decrease
to its workers’ compensat i on
expenses due to interest rates.
Shipping and package revenue con-
tinued to be a bright spot for the
agency, increasing 8.8 percent com-
pared to the same period last year. That
helped operating revenue rise 3.6 per-
cent to $16.2 billion in the third quar-
ter, compared to last year’s third quarter.
First-class mail revenue, the Postal
Service’s most profitable category,
declined by 0.9 percent compared to the
same period last year. Total mail vol-
ume was 37.9 billion pieces, down from
38.3 billion pieces for the third quarter
last year.
The Postal Service for years has been
wrestling with declining mail volume
and a 2006 congressional requirement
that it make advance payments to cover
expected health care costs for future
retirees for 75 years in advance, some-
thing no federal agency does. The
agency expects to miss a $5.6 billion
health care payment next month at the
end of its fiscal year. It defaulted on two
similar payments last year.
The pre-funding requirement for future
retiree health benefits accounts for the
brunt of the agency’s red ink and under-
scores the urgency for Congress to end
the mandate, postal officials say. About
$11.1 billion of last year’s $16 billion
agency losses were due to the annual
health care payments.
Earlier this year, the agency
backpedaled on its plan to end Saturday
mail delivery after running into oppo-
sition in Congress.
The National Association of Letter
Carriers says ending Saturday delivery
would hurt small businesses along with
rural residents and the elderly, who
depend more heavily on the mail for
prescription drugs and other goods.

Swiss apologize
for an encounter
Oprah calls racist
By John Heilprin
GENEVA — It’s a glamorous playground of the rich and
famous, filled with glitterati from princes to movie stars.
It’s also a land with a sometimes uneasy relationship with
foreigners — especially when they aren’t white.
Billionaire media mogul Oprah Winfrey says she ran into
Swiss racism when a clerk at Trois Pommes, a pricey Zurich
boutique, refused to show her a $38,000 handbag, telling
one of the world’s richest women that she wouldn’t be able
to afford it. Winfrey earned $77 million in the year ending
in June, according to Forbes magazine.
“She said: ‘No, no, no, you don’t want to see that one. You
want to see this one. Because that one will cost too much;
you will not be able to afford that,”’ Winfrey, appearing on
the U.S. television program “Entertainment Tonight,” quot-
ed the clerk as saying. “And I said, ‘Well, I did really want to
see that one.’ And she refused to get it.”
She brought up the incident during an interview about her
new movie, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” which opens next
week and focuses on civil rights and race relations in the
U.S. She was asked to open up about her own experiences
with discrimination.
Swiss tourism officials and the boutique owner were quick
to offer apologies Friday.
“We are very sorry for what happened to her, of course,
because we think all of our guests and clients should be
treated respectfully, in a professional way,” Daniela Baer, a
spokeswoman for the Swiss tourism office, told the
Associated Press.
The tourism office also posted an apology on Twitter, say-
ing, “This person acted terribly wrong.”

tant had shown Winfrey several other items before the “mis-
The newspaper Blick described the bag as a crocodile-

Approval invoked or usurped?
Since the 1986 immigration
reforms, illegal immigration has
quadrupled. The 1986 laws were not
enforced. Law enforcement would
have denied cheap labor to business.
It was, therefore, government com-
plicity that quadrupled illegal immi-
gration. The 2013 Immigration
Reforms will legalize cheap labor and
provide citizenship. Amnesty and a
green card will be required for immi-
gration employment. But citizenship
is not a work requirement.
Citizenship is, then, superfluous.
Amnesty and a green card are obvi-
ously not a punishment. They do not
fit the immigrant’s crime. Rather,
they are considered as compensation
for the government’s complicity in
the crime. However, they do fit the
needs of the business community.
They provide legal cheap labor.
So far what is citizenship if not
compensation? The government
allowed only illegal employment; not
illegal citizenship. But according to
Congress, mass deportation would be
inhumane and too expensive. Yet
Congress is prepared to spend $46
billion at the border to prevent immi-
gration. Apparently, it is not inhu-
mane to prevent illegal immigrants,
but only inhumane to deport them.
Congress, evidently, does not believe
that deportation fits the immigrant’s
crime; but that citizenship does.
AU.S. citizenship is a precious
civic asset. It’s envied worldwide.
Only a dysfunctional Congress would
exchange citizenship for a crime
against their country.
The 2013 reforms will provide and
retain cheap labor for business. They
will also add millions of citizens
below the poverty line and increase
our society’s economic inequality. To

Brains not bombs
Does anyone but the most gullible
take Heritage Foundation president
and former South Carolina Republican
senator Jim DeMint seriously any-
more? On Fox News he said Al-Qaida
“may be more of a threat to us than
they were before the terrorist attacks
of Sept. 11, 2001 because they per-
ceive President Barack Obama to be a
weak president.”
The threats before 9/11 were clear
and present, but ignored by the then
president George W. Bush. The pre-
dictable and totally preventable terror
attacks not only happened on Bush’s
watch, but he compounded the damage
by blindly diving into two unneces-
sary wars without a clear goal and
with no exit strategy. It took
President Obama to get us out and to
track down and dispose of Osama bin
Laden, who Bush had given up on.
Faced with credible threats right now,
Obama has taken preemptive meas-
It looks like DeMint and his right-
wing ilk measure “strength” by the
willingness to blindly use fire power
and attack rather than brain power to
figure out the best course of action.
Like in the school yard, the bullies
are the trouble makers while the more
brainy are the future problem solvers
and true leaders. Perhaps Mr. DeMint
should re-evaluate his opinion? Oh,
sorry, I forgot, that requires some
brain power.

A grave injustice
Clear Channel wants to blight
South San Francisco with digital bill-
boards akin to flashing casino lights
and arcade games (“South City nixes
business tax: Officials still in talks
with billboard company about digital
signs” in the Aug. 8 edition of the
Daily Journal). Our fair city is finally
coming into its own by leading the
way as the “Birthplace of Biotech,”
and to litter it with distasteful neon
digital billboards would reduce the
advancements South City has made
and worked for all these years.
Assistant City Manager Marty Van
Duyn stated in the article, “Asking
the city to change legislative policy
[is] a big thing to do.” In the West
Winston Manor area, we cannot get a
speed bump installed to stop traffic
violators who habitually run the stop
sign at Junipero Serra Boulevard
going west onto Hickey Boulevard to
allow the residents to enter the flow
of traffic due to legislative policies in
our city. So, to make concessions in
our legislative policy so a corpora-
tion can install such offensive and
repugnant billboards over the safety
and concerns of its citizenry, South
San Francisco would be performing a
grave injustice.

n Afghanistan, the Taliban has
murdered United Nations health
workers attempting to adminis-
ter the polio vaccine in rural villagers
and has convinced villagers that the
vaccine is a Western plot to infect
Afghan children.
While U.S. health workers aren’t
being gunned down, misguided, back-
ward thinking also has prevented
American families from taking full
advantage of a vaccine that could pre-
vent thousands of cases of cervical
cancer each year.
Researchers believe that the
Gardasil vaccine to block infection
by the human papillomavirus could
prevent up to 70 percent of all cervi-
cal cancers and 90 percent of genital
warts. But the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention reported last
week that immunization rates across
the nation have stalled over the last
HPVs are the most common cause of
sexually transmitted infections. More
than half of people who are sexually
active become infected with one of
the more than 40 types of HPV that
are known to spread during vaginal,
oral or anal sex, according to the
National Cancer Institute.
The viruses are responsible for
nearly all cases of cervical cancer and
most cases of anal cancer. The viruses
also cause more than half of the can-
cers in the middle part of the throat
and about half of vaginal, vulvular
and penile cancers.
But the vaccine can practically
eliminate that risk, especially if it is
administered to teens before they
become sexually active so their bod-
ies can develop immunity. Since
2006, the Advisory Committee on
Immunization practices has recom-
mended routine vaccination of adoles-
cent girls ages 11 or 12.
The need to inoculate children
against HPV remains no matter who
pays for it. We shouldn’t let supersti-
tion, ignorance — or false economy
— deter us from ensuring that as many
as possible receive this lifesaving
HPV vaccination lagging
Standing up for vets
a t t e n d e d t h e Ve t e r a n s o f F o r e i g n
Wa r s N a t i o n a l Convention last month. About
10,000 veterans from all over the world converged on
Louisville, Ky., for a week of fun, celebration and a little
business. It is occasions like this that makes me proud to be
an American. These men and women fought for our country
and then came home. Sometimes they were whole, some-
times they were not. They might be missing a limb or two.
They might be missing a part of their psyche. But here they
were, decked out in full regalia, representing all that is great
and good about America. It is refreshing to be around these
men and women of honor.
Louisville is a pretty town of about 600,000 located
along the Ohio River on the border of Indiana. It is the
home of the Kentucky Derby, the
preeminent horse race for 3-year-
old thoroughbreds held on the first
Saturday in May. It is also the
home of the Louisville Slugger
baseball bat. You can tour the
Louisville Slugger museum and
have a bat made with your name
on it. Louisville is where
Meriwether Lewis and William
Clark met in October 1803 to
begin their incredible voyage of
discovery of America’s West. The
University of Louisville also has
a pretty good football team.
Convention headquarters was
the Galt House Hotel. In March 1864, Generals Ulysses S.
Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman met there to plan the
capture of Atlanta and Sherman’s March to the Sea. Parked
by the hotel on the river was the Belle of Louisville, the
oldest paddlewheel steamboat still operating in America.
There were dozens of bars and restaurants within walking
distance to repair to, to discuss the nation’s problems or to
resolve whatever crisis the veterans faced at the moment.
There was one in particular.
Four speakers flew in from Washington to give us an
update — Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell, Sen. Rand Paul,
Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki and Secretary of
Defense Chuck Hagel.
Sen. McConnell said to expect spending cuts, but they
would not affect veterans’ programs. He touched on the
backlog of disability claims, and he said that five years ago
he supported funding for the VAthat was $750 million more
than requested, to address the backlog. That did not help. In
2008, there were 390,000 claims; in four years that number
more than doubled.
Sen. Paul then spoke. He said the United States must have
“the strongest military on earth,” but it cannot be involved
“in every civil war on the planet.” He quoted former
President Dwight D. Eisenhower who, as president, often
cautioned against foreign entanglements. His call for reduc-
ing foreign aid to Egypt and Pakistan, countries “that hate
us or Israel,” drew warm applause.
Then it was Secretary Shinseki’s turn. When senators
McConnell and Paul spoke, the vast main hall at the
Convention Center was half full. It was not even a third full
for Shinseki. Last year, in his speech before the VFWcon-
vention, he vowed that the share of backlogged claims in
the system would be no higher than 40 percent when he
returned this year. Instead, it sits at 65 percent, the same
level as a year ago. Ahalf-million claims are still back-
logged. It was obvious to the few who listened that his
excuses were lame.
Secretary Hagel rushed to Secretary Shinseki’s defense.
“Our military leaders do everything possible to protect
our men and women on the battlefield. We must make this
same commitment to our people here at home,” he said.
He reiterated his department’s recent work on lifetime
electronic medical records, assisting with veterans’ benefit s
claims processing and transition programs for departing
service members.
After the speeches, we all repaired to Hospitality Suites or
local watering holes. Veterans have strong opinions about
everything. These opinions can differ in colorful and excit-
ing ways, depending on the lateness of the hour and the
quality of the adult beverage.
But when it came to discussing the VAbacklog, there was
no argument. Our fine young men and women go to foreign
lands and fight for our country and defend our freedom. When
they come home they should not have to wait to receive the
care and treatment they were promised when they signed up.
What is happening to them is shameful.
I work for Concerned Veterans for America as its Western
Region director and I can tell you that we have worked tire-
lessly to draw attention to this problem, believing that the
best way to repair what’s wrong is to raise public awareness
of the situation. We have called on the resignation of
Secretary Shinseki and, to date, more than 25,000 people
have signed this petition. We are delivering the petitions to
the White House on Aug. 20, but we won’t stop there
Chuck McDougald headed the Veterans Coalition, first for
California, then for the Western Region, when Sen. John
McCain ran for president in 2008. In 2010, he served as
Statewide Volunteer Chair for Carly Fiorina’s campaign for the
U.S. Senate. He is currently the Western Region director for
ConcernedVeteransforAmerica.org. He lives in South San
Francisco with his wife and two kids.

NEW YORK — Friday was the ho-
hum capstone to a ho-hum week in the
stock market as unimpressive earn-
ings kept investors feeling wary and
news about the U.S. economy left
them uninspired.
All three major indexes ended lower,
and almost everything about the day
screamed summer. Trading was light
and earnings season was nearly over.
The only major economic news the
government released was wholesale
inventories, and that’s hardly a close-
ly watched indicator. Those still at
work remarked on the difference that
just a week made — the S&P 500 and
the Dow Jones industrial average both
hit their highest closing levels exact-
ly one week before — and joked that
all their colleagues had already taken
off for the Hamptons, a group of tony
beach towns east of Manhattan.
“Practically the whole financial
world is there today,” said Jeff Sica,
president and chief investment officer
of Sica Wealth Management, from his
office in Morristown, N.J.
Friday marked not just a losing day
but also a losing week for the Dow,
the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq compos-
ite. For the Dow, it was its first week-
ly loss since June.
The Dow closed down 72.81 points,
or 0.5 percent, to 15,425.51. The
S&P 500 index lost 6.06 points, or
0.4 percent, to 1,691.42. The Nasdaq
composite was down 9.02 points, or
0.3 percent, to 3,660.11.
Investors couldn’t pinpoint a spe-
cific reason for Friday’s decline, but
said the entire week — one when the
Dow and S&P 500 rose on only one
day — has been weighed down by
uninspired earnings reports. Earnings
are up, but by less than analysts had
forecast at the beginning of the year,
and revenue is falling. There are also
worries that the market has already
reached its highs for the year. The
S&P 500 is up 19 percent for the year.
“There’s no specific culprit here,
but the market seems to be tired,” said
Robbert Van Batenburg, director of
market strategy at Newedge in New
Comments this week from Federal
Reserve officials also make it seem
likely that the Fed will soon rein in
its stimulus measures, which are
meant to prop up the economy and
stock market. Some investors worry
that yanking off the Fed Band-Aid
will reveal an economy that can’t
stand on its own.
J.C. Penney was one of the few
companies making news. Shares fell
6 percent as the company’s board
bickered with its largest shareholder,
hedge fund manager Bill Ackman,
over how quickly the company should
replace its interim CEO. The stock
lost 79 cents to $12.87.
The government reported that sales
for U.S. wholesalers increased — but
wholesalers also cut their stockpiles
for a third straight month, an indica-
tion that they’re uncertain about
future demand.
Stocks slide on a quiet day
Stocks that moved substantially or traded heavily Friday on the New
York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq Stock Market:
The Gap Inc., down $1.42 to $44.10
Susquehanna downgraded the Gap’s stock after a 137 percent share
appreciation since November 2011.But the downgrade comes with a hike
on the firm’s earnings-per-share projections and price target.
J.C. Penney, down 79 cents to $12.87
The next board meeting at J.C.Penney may look more like a cage match.
Hedge fund manager Bill Ackman said he has lost confidence in the
board and its chairman should be replaced.Chairman Thomas Engibous
called Ackman’s comments “misleading, inaccurate and
counterproductive.”Ackman is a major shareholder of J.C. Penney and
sits on the company’s board.
Molycorp Inc., down 72 cents to $6.69
Sliding prices for rare-earth materials led to the company posting a
broader quarterly loss.However,CEO Constantine Karayannopoulos said
prices have bottomed out and buyers are returning.
Peabody Energy Corp., up $1.30 to $17.90
Moody’s Investors Service boosted its outlook for the coal industry to
“Stable”from “Negative,”saying that it doesn’t expect industry conditions
to worsen over the next 12 to 18 months.
BlackBerry Ltd., up 53 cents to $9.76
The mobile phone maker’s shares jumped following a report that the
company may be growing more amenable to going private. Reuters,
citing sources familiar with the situation,reported that no deal is imminent
and no formal exploration of a sale has begun.
Priceline.com Inc., up $36.14 to $969.89
Shares in the travel website came close to $1,000, a feat that no stock
on the Standard & Poor’s 500 index has accomplished.The stock hasn’t
been this high since it had an adjusted closing price of $974.27 on April
30, 1999, a month after going public in the heady days of the dotcom
Noodles & Co., down $4.96 to $42.31
The restaurant, which just began trading publicly, underwhelmed
investors with its financial forecast. Despite confidence in the concept,
Stifel analyst Paul Westra said that investors are overvaluing the company’s
growth prospects.
Beacon Roofing Supply Inc., down $1.75 to $37.94
The company fell well short of Wall Street expectations in its most recent
quarter.It said the building season got off to a late start because of harsh
rains and other weather-related problems.

Ackman pushes for Penney chairman to go
NEWYORK — The battle over J.C. Penney’s future just
got uglier.
Activist investor Bill Ackman said Friday that he has lost
confidence in J.C. Penney’s board and that its chairman
should be replaced. Penney Chairman Thomas Engibous
fired back and called Ackman’s comments inaccurate.
The exchange adds more fuel to an unusually public
squabble between Ackman and the rest of J.C. Penney’s
board over how quickly it should replace CEO Mike
Ullman. Ackman’s investment firm, Pershing Square
Capital, has a nearly 18 percent stake in Penney and he sits
on the company’s board of directors.
Meanwhile, investment firm Perry Capital, which owns
7.26 percent stake in Penney, came out in support of
Ackman in a letter released in a regulatory filing and urged
the board for a change in management.
ITC issues import ban
on some Samsung products
NEWYORK — Apple won a partial victory in its long-
running patent dispute with Samsung on Friday when a fed-
eral administrative panel found Samsung in violation of
two Apple patents and blocked imports of some Samsung
Even as the U.S. International Trade Commission found
Samsung in violation of the two patents, it cleared the
South Korean company on four other patents in dispute.
President Barack Obama’s administration has 60 days to
veto ITC rulings. Over the weekend, the administration
invalidated a June order that sided with Samsung and banned
imports of Apple’s iPhone 4 and a variant of its iPad 2. But
the patents involved in Friday’s ruling aren’t of the type
that Obama found objectionable.
Judge denies Apple Inc. request in e-books case
NEW YORK — A judge on Friday refused a request by
Apple to temporarily suspend her ruling that it violated
antitrust laws by conspiring with publishers to raise elec-
tronic book prices in 2010, and she said it appeared collu-
sion was continuing even after her findings.
U.S. District Judge Denise Cote, ruling from the bench in
Manhattan, declined to withdraw the effect of last month’s
ruling while Cupertino-based Apple Inc. appeals.

NEW YORK — Priceline.com came
close Friday to becoming the first
stock in the Standard & Poor’s 500
index to cross $1,000.
Investors jumped onboard after the
travel booking company reported bet-
ter than expected second-quarter earn-
ings. The stock rose to almost $995
before leveling off. The stock closed at
The company’s stock hasn’t been
this high since it had an adjusted clos-
ing price of $974.27 on April 30,
1999, a month after going public in
the heady days of the dotcom boom.
The stock dropped below $10 just two
years later.
Online travel sites like Priceline,
Expedia and Orbitz have their roots in
booking airline tickets, but have
branched out because of a decline in
commissions the airlines pay them.
Priceline has been the most aggressive
and successful in diversifying through
several company-owned sites includ-
ing Booking.com, Agoda, and
Priceline got its start asking travel-
ers to “Name Your Own Price” and bid
on flights, hotel rooms and car rentals.
Bidders didn’t know in advance what
hotel or flight they would be on, and
the booking was non-refundable, but
the savviest could save substantially
as travel providers tried to fill unused
rooms, cars or seats on planes. The
company hired William Shatner as its
pitchman, calling him “the negotia-
tor.” Priceline still offers its bidding
service but has mostly shifted to more
traditional bookings and travel pack-
The key to its success in the last
quarter was overseas hotel markets.
Domestic bookings grew at a
respectable 12 percent in the second
quarter, but international growth was
red-hot, up 44 percent from last year.
The number of hotels that list their
properties on the booking sites is
growing. Booking.com now has
330,000 hotel properties, up from
295,000 reported last quarter, many of
them added in Europe and Asia. The
Norwalk, Conn. company is paid a
commission for each room sold.
The number of rental car days booked
from rentalcars.com and Priceline.com
also grew at an impressive 46 percent.
The company also spent heavily on
advertising, increasing its online
budget by 47 percent.
Profit in the April-to-June quarter
rose 24 percent to $437.3 million, or
$8.39 per share, compared with the
same quarter a year ago.

About 200 fans showed up at Carlmont
High School to watch the Belmont-
Redwood Shores Little League All-Stars
play Arizona on ESPN in the second semifi-
nal of the Western Regional tournament.
They were treated to a typical BRS game:
strong pitching, strong hitting and yet
another win.
Top-seeded Belmont-Redwood Shores
beat No. 4 Arizona for the second time in
the tournament, 8-1, to advance to Saturday
evening’s championship game where it will
take on Southern California. It beat No. 3
Nevada 12-0 in the other semifinal. BRS
beat SoCal 3-2 in the final game of pool
play Wednesday.
The game will be televised on ESPN.
“Obviously, a great win,” said Belmont-
Redwood Shores coach Rudy Lopez via tele-
phone. “We battled all game long and final-
ly broke through in the fifth inning.”
Nicolas Lopez got his second start of the
tournament and picked up his second win
with 6 2/3 solid innings of work. He
allowed an unearned run in the bottom of the
sixth inning, but limited Arizona to just
four hits while striking out nine.
“I told him you’re getting spoiled when
he was disappointed he gave up four hits,”
Rudy Lopez said. “He is pitching like the
Nicolas of old and is as dominant as Sean
Lee will start the championship game
Saturday. In eight innings of work — a six-
inning, complete game in the opener last
Friday and two innings of relief Wednesday
— Lee has struck out 20 and allowed only
two hits.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Jason Dufner got on
quite a roll after he holed out from the fairway
for an eagle at the second hole.
Not that anyone could tell.
The laid-back player who gave us
“Dufnering” hardly showed a lick of emotion
during his relentless march toward the record
Then, finally, with a chance to do some-
thing that had never been done — shoot 62
in a major championship — the significance
of the moment finally got to him.
Dufner left a 12-foot birdie putt a good 18
inches short, settling for a 7-under 63 that
tied the major scoring record at the PGA
Championship on Friday.
“I showed a little bit of nerves there,” he
conceded. “That’s one where you’d like to
gun it when you have a chance at history. But
I was able to two-putt and share a little bit of
Indeed, it was quite a round.
Dufner became the 12th player to shoot 63
in the PGA Championship. Steve Stricker
was the most recent to do it, in the opening
round two years ago at the Atlanta Athletic
Overall, it is the 26th time a player has
shot 63 in a major. It has been done at all four
of golf’s biggest events.
“The history of the game is something dear
to my heart,” Dufner said. “To be part of his-
tory, to be there forever, is a neat accom-
plishment. I never thought a guy from
Cleveland, Ohio, would be able to do the type
of things I’ve been able to do.”
He is best known — on the course, at least
— for squandering a four-shot lead with four
holes remaining at the 2011 PGA. He lost to
Keegan Bradley in a playoff.
Dufner gained even more fame this year
when a photo emerged of him slumped
against a wall, his arms straight at his side,
during an appearance in a school classroom.
Fans took the Internet to post pictures of
themselves in various states of “Dufnering.”
Dufner fires 63, leads PGA
Jason Dufner’s 7-under 63 in the second round of the PGAChampionship tied the record for
lowest round in a major. He leads the tournament by two strokes over a trio of players.

OAKLAND — Monte Kiffin has brought
an opportunistic defense to Dallas in the
Sean Lee and rookie J.J. Wilcox forced
first-half turnovers for Dallas’ revamped
defense before the Oakland Raiders rallied
past the Cowboys for a 19-17 victory in
their exhibition opener Friday night.
Lee flattened Matt Flynn on a delayed
blitz on the opening drive of the game to
force a fumble deep in Oakland territory in
his first action since a season-ending toe
injury last October.
Wilcox intercepted an ill-advised pass
from Terrelle Pryor in the end zone to thwart
a promising Raiders drive.
The Cowboys forced just 16 turnovers last
year, contributing to the firing of coordina-
tor Rob Ryan, who was replaced by Kiffin as
the defense moved from a three-man front to
a four-man front.
Dallas has forced four turnovers in its first
two preseason games under Kiffin.
Tony Romo, who sat out last week against
Miami after offseason surgery to remove a
cyst from his back, completed 6 of 8 passes
for 88 yards in his first two series of the pre-
Kyle Orton threw a 15-yard touchdown
pass to Cole Beasley and rookie Joseph
Randle scored on a 1-yard run in the fourth
quarter to give Dallas a 17-16 lead.
But the Cowboys lost that lead when
rookie B.W. Webb fumbled a punt that Eric
Harper recovered at the 9, setting up Eddy
Carmona’s second field goal of the game. It
was a rough night for Dallas’ special teams
as the Cowboys had a field goal blocked and
allowed a 51-yard kickoff return.

Helmsman Chris Draper made a clutch
move right before the start and sailed Italy’s
Luna Rossa to victory Friday over Artemis
Racing and a 3-0 lead in the America’s Cup
challenger semifinals.
Luna Rossa can wrap up the best-of-seven
series Saturday on San Francisco Bay and
earn a berth against Emirates Team New
Zealand in the Louis Vuitton Cup final.
Unless Artemis can extend the series, its
campaign will be finished after only four
races. The Swedish-backed syndicate has
been scrambling to catch up since May 9,
when sailor Andrew “Bart” Simpson was
killed in the capsize of its first boat.
Artemis was going through a slow tack
during prestart maneuvers when Draper
tucked the chrome-hulled Italian catamaran
under the Swedish boat and into control.
Artemis protested but the on-the-water
umpires waved it off.
It was the first time in three races that
Draper won the starter. Even though the
Italian boat trailed at the start in the first
two races, it quickly overhauled Artemis
Luna Rossa led at every mark and won by
1 minute, 18 seconds. It was the closest
margin in the challenger series so far.
Artemis sailed better than it did in the first
two races. The syndicate looked much better
at foiling its catamaran, which is when the
boat builds enough speed to pop up onto
hydrofoils and ride over the tops of the
waves, its hulls out of the water. That
reduces drag and increases speed.
Luna Rossa, though, gradually increased
its lead at every mark on the course that
stretches from just inside the Golden Gate
Bridge to just beyond Alcatraz Island. The
finish line is right off America’s Cup Park
on piers 27-29.
Luna Rossa win

INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAAwill soon be
sending enforcement staff members back to
Interim enforcement chief Jonathan Duncan
told the Associated Press he wants investiga-
tors to spend more time on college campuses
so they can get a glimpse into the real-life
challenges of running and policing athletic
departments in today’s work.
“One of the things I hear is that our staff
sometimes lacks an understanding of what
campus life is really like,” Duncan said. “So we
are piloting a program where our staff will
work on campus with athletic directors, com-
pliance staff members and coaches and walk in
their shoes so that we have a true understand-
ing of what goes on.”
While the program is new, the concept is
School leaders frequently complain the
NCAArulebook is overloaded and outdated and
sometimes brand NCAA officials as out-of-
touch with the ever-changing, multimillion-
dollar world of college sports. There are poten-
tial pitfalls everywhere on campuses that are
largely open to the public — and presumably
open to troubling influences like associates of
unscrupulous agents. Those contacts can jeop-
ardize a player’s eligibility and get coaches
and programs in serious trouble.
The consequences are greater now that the
new enforcement policies have officially taken
effect. The new rules hold coaches more
accountable for their actions and those of their
staff. Rules violations could lead to suspen-
sions of up to one year. To avoid potentially
damaging and costly punishments, school
leaders also will have an opportunity to
demonstrate to the infractions committee what
they did to create a culture of compliance on
But Duncan wants his staff members to get a
firsthand look at the new normal. Details of the
plan are still being worked out.
“In the coming weeks and months, we will
continue working and communicating with
NCAAstaff and the members,” he wrote Friday
in an email to the AP. “The program will place
different levels of enforcement staff members
on campus for varying amounts of time to pro-
vide a greater understanding of the campus
That’s not the only change Duncan has
“There are those who believe in the member-
ship that our staff members could benefit from
better training in investigative techniques and
interviewing techniques,” Duncan said. “We
are going to provide that training so that a
good investigation will be done timely and
professionally, though I’m not suggesting
that doesn’t happen now.”
This new way of thinking is part of Duncan’s
broad plan to rebuild the enforcement staff’s
tattered reputation.
In January, NCAA President Mark Emmert
announced a rogue enforcement official
ignored the governing body’s own policies
and the advice of higher-ups to improperly col-
lect evidence against the University of Miami.
Emmert promised to scrub the investigation of
any evidence obtained improperly.
In February, after releasing details of an
external review into what happened, Julie Roe
Lach was ousted as the NCAA’s top cop and
Duncan was appointed as interim chief. He’s
been given an 18-month trial run. It certainly
hasn’t been an easy transition for the former
Kansas City attorney, who took over a depart-
ment that needed a morale boost in mid-March.
“Certainly it’s been a difficult time in
enforcement,” he said. “They are tough, hard-
working, good people but they are human. I
think morale is good and I think it will contin-
ue to improve.”
NCAA ‘police’ to spend
more time on campuses
By Antonio Gonzalez
STANFORD — From the moment Bernard
Muir moved into the athletic director’s
office at Stanford, he felt the burden of keep-
ing alive one of the most impressive streaks
in college sports.
When Bob Bowlsby left to become the
Big 12 Conference commissioner a year
ago, the Cardinal had won 18 straight
Directors’ Cups, given annually by the
National Association of Collegiate
Directors of Athletics to the top-performing
program across all
sports. The last thing
Muir wanted was for the
unprecedented run to end
in his first year on The
“That was a pressure
cooker,” Muir said. “Let
me tell you, I was sweat-
ing this spring. As we
were checking every
week, looking at the cal-
culus each week, I said, ‘OK, what does it
take for us to secure it?”’
In the 20th year of the competition,
Stanford sealed its 19th consecutive title by
the closest margin ever.
The Cardinal finished just 16.5 points
ahead of Florida in late June, closing out an
athletic year highlighted by the football
team’s first Rose Bowl victory in 41 years.
The Stanford women’s tennis team also kept
alive another streak for the department: 37
consecutive years with at least one NCAA
“I’m glad it unfolded the way it did,” Muir
said, “but it was a little too close for com-
As Muir heads into his second full year at
Stanford, he’s only beginning to make his
own marks.
The 45-year-old athletic director spent
most of his first go-around learning about
his new surroundings on the Silicon Valley
campus. He met constantly with coaches,
student-athletes, faculty and donors to elicit
feedback about what the department was
doing well and what it could do better.
He also had to gain a better understanding
about sports such as water polo and gym-
nastics that he didn’t oversee in previous
stops as athletic director at Delaware and
Georgetown. With 36 sports and some 850
student-athletes in his care, the sheer size of
Stanford meant opening more lines of com-
munication and learning when — and to
whom — to delegate responsibility.
“It’s such a vibrant program, you just try
to get your arms around that,” Muir said.
“You can see it on paper, but when you’re
actually walking it and living it and breath-
ing it, it’s just a totally different thing.”
Muir said the support from donors and the
commitment from coaches have been
among the most impressive things he has
witnessed. Such wherewithal and work ethic
from those around him also has pushed Muir
to strive for more.
Among his biggest goals: upgrading
facilities for as many sports as possible and
building the Stanford brand.
The football staff outgrew its offices and
is moving into a new building — complete
with a weight room and locker room — in a
few weeks as part of a $21 million project
that began in 2011. And more projects will
surely be needed in the coming years for
Stanford to compete in the arms race of col-
lege athletics.
As with most in power at the prestigious
private university, Muir prefers not to talk
about specific plans publicly. But a renova-
tion of Maples Pavilion, home to the bas-
ketball and volleyball teams, and the game-
day facilities for the football team figure to
be among the most notable upgrades need-
“Every coach has a list,” he said, chuck-
More than anything, Muir wants Stanford
to capitalize on its success — especially the
exposure that comes with football, which
the university was mostly unprepared for in
past years. While fundraising is at the core
of his job, Muir is most passionate about
promoting the program.
“I think the story of 36 varsity programs
competing at the highest level and kids
competing in the classroom at the highest
level and making the most of their experi-
ence is really one that we want to tell in
numerous ways and fashions,” Muir said.
“And that’s what we’re going to be working
toward in the near future. That’s our primary
goal: to get the word out.”
Muir made sure two of Stanford’s loudest
sounding boards are staying put. In his first
year, he signed Hall of Fame women’s bas-
ketball coach Tara VanDerveer and football
coach David Shaw to long-term contracts,
calling the negotiations for both “pretty

SAN FRANCISCO — Chris Davis hit a
two-out, two-run double in the 10th inning
and the Baltimore Orioles beat the San
Francisco Giants 5-2 Friday night.
J.J. Hardy homered and Adam Jones had
two hits and drove in a run for Baltimore.
Matt Wieters also drove in a run.
Jim Johnson (3-7) gave up a game-tying
hit to Hunter Pence with no outs in the ninth
and then worked out of the jam to gain the
Orioles starter Chris Tillman threw eight
stellar innings, striking out a career-high
nine, giving up one run on four hits and
walked one.
Brandon Belt had two hits, including a
home run, for the Giants, who have lost five
of seven. Javier Lopez (1-2) allowed all
three runs in the 10th to take the loss.
Tillman was on his way to becoming the
first Orioles pitcher to
win eight road games in a
season before Johnson
blew his first save since
July 1.
Ryan Vogelsong, who
was reinstated from the
60-day disabled list
before the game, allowed
two runs on six hits over
six innings. He walked
three and struck out four.
Tommy Hunter got the final three outs for
his third save in four chances.
Manny Machado recorded his 41st double
of the season with one out in the first. Jones
singled him home to put the Orioles ahead,
Hardy led off the second with his 20th
homer, giving Baltimore a 2-0 lead.
Vogelsoing, in his first appearance since
May 20, settled in afterward. After allowing
six hits in the first three innings, he retired
10 of the final 12 batters he faced.
Belt hit his 13th home run of the season
and second in as many days, a solo shot,
with two outs, to the deepest part of the
Tillman retired 16 in a row after walking
Pablo Sandoval in the second. He struck out
the side in the second and the first two bat-
ters he faced in the third.
Machado doubled off Brandon Crawford’s

ting Nick Markakis on a comebacker, the
left-handed Lopez walked Jones intention-
ally and got ahead of Davis 1-2 before giv-
ing up the two-run double. Wieters followed
with an RBI single.
NOTES: The Giants hit home runs in suc-
cessive home games for the first time since

When competitive offers come in on a home, there are usually three types
of offers that are made. There are offers contingent on selling a home,
offers needing financing or offers that are All-Cash. Which one is the best?
That all depends. The key ingredients are what price is being offered, what
contingencies are included
and close of escrow and
possession. Regarding the
price, is it under, over or at
asking price? Then are there
any contingencies. Finally,
how quickly is the closing
and possession?
An All-Cash offer is a great
term to have but if its not the
highest price, or has contin-

TORONTO — Josh Reddick snapped out of
his season-long slump with a bang. Three of
them, to be precise.
Reddick homered in three consecutive at-
bats, Jed Lowrie and Yoenis Cespedes also
connected and the Oakland Athletics beat the
Toronto Blue Jays 14-6 Friday night.
“Fantastic,” Reddick said. “Finally got
something to go my way. You hit it over there,
they can’t catch it.”
Reddick was hitless in his previous 20 at-
bats before connecting off Esmil Rogers with
a solo blast in the second inning that hit the
facing of the second deck in right. He hit
another solo homer in the fifth, an opposite-
field shot to left off reliever Neil Wagner, and
then smacked a three-run drive off Juan Perez in
the sixth.
“That was a breakthrough,” Oakland manag-
er Bob Melvin said. “Long time coming for
The home runs were the
sixth, seventh and eighth
of the season for Reddick,
who has three career multi-
homer games. All three
homers came with two
The power-packed per-
formance proved a tough
act to follow for Oakland
DH Seth Smith, who
watched all three homers from the on-deck cir-
“I was like ‘Aw man, how am I going to fol-
low that?”’ Smith joked.
Reddick is the sixth player this season to hit
three homers in a game. It’s the first three-
homer game by an Athletics player since
Erubiel Durazo did it in a 5-4 victory at
Baltimore on Aug. 18, 2004, hitting a pair of
two-run homers and a solo shot.
Facing Sergio Santos with the bases empty
in his fifth and final at-bat in the eighth,
Reddick took a mighty swing on a 1-0 pitch
but didn’t make contact. He worked the count
to 3-1 before grounding out to second base,
just as he’d done against Rogers for the final
out of the first.
Reddick said he was “anxious and shaking in
the box” as he chased a fourth homer.
“There’s nothing else on your mind at that
point,” he said. “My 1-0 swing showed that I
wasn’t trying to hit a single to left.”
Reddick hit a career-best 32 homers last sea-
son, but hasn’t come close to duplicating that
in a frustrating 2013 season.
“This could be a great thing for him and us to
kind of turn the corner and get hot at the right
time,” Oakland right-hander Jarrod Parker said.
Oakland came in batting .219 in 22 games
since July 10, but set a season high in runs and
pounded out 17 hits against the Blue Jays,
winning for the sixth time in eight games at
Rogers Centre.
Lowrie had four hits and four RBIs before
leaving for a pinch runner, coming within a
triple of the cycle. It was the third four-hit
game of his career.
Parker worked six innings as the Athletics
won for just the second time in eight games
and prevented Texas from overtaking them for
first place in the ALWest.
Parker (8-6) allowed three runs and six hits
in six innings, walked one and struck out six
to win back-to-back starts for the first time
since a three-game winning streak from May
28 to June 7.
Jose Bautista hit a solo home run for the
Blue Jays, his 26th, and Colby Rasmus added a
two-run drive, his 18th. Both homers came off
reliever Pat Neshek.
Oakland jumped on Rogers in the first, scor-
ing four runs before the struggling right-han-
der could record an out. Coco Crisp led off with
a single, Eric Sogard walked and Lowrie blast-
ed a three-run homer, his ninth. Cespedes lined
the very next pitch out to left, his 18th, the
fifth time this season that Oakland has gone

Both CBS and Time Warner
appear to be hunkered down for the
long haul. Their fight is over how
much Time Warner Cable pays for
CBS programming and how much
of the network’s content it can use
online. Since they couldn’t agree,
about 3 million cable subscribers
in New York, Los Angeles and
Dallas have been without CBS
programming since Aug. 2.
Although both companies say
negotiations are ongoing, top
spokespeople for both companies
were away on Friday and weren’t
expected back for the remainder of
the weekend. Time Warner Cable
sent out a press release Thursday
detailing how consumers could
find sports and other CBS pro-
gramming in other ways.
In New York, the cable operator
has recommended signing up for a
month-long free trial of Aereo,
which transmits CBS signals to
laptops, tablets, mobile devices
and computers, for $8 a month.
People with a relatively unob-
structed view of a TVtower can buy
and hook up a digital antenna to
catch free over-the-air broadcasts
on their own.
Fans of CBS show “Under the
Dome” can watch new episodes
online four days after their origi-
nal air date by signing up for
Amazon.com’s $79-a-year Prime
shipping and video service.
Amazon Prime video is watchable
on computers, mobile devices and
through the TV using connected
gadgets such as Roku devices or
Xbox game consoles.
Other CBS shows such as “Big
Brother” are available for free on
the CBS mobile app and CBS.com
the day after airing, as long as cus-
tomers are not using an Internet
connection provided by Time
Warner Cable, because CBS has
blocked video to those using an IP
address from the cable operator.
Fans find alternatives for CBS-Time Warner Cable spat
the plate, going 2 for 4 with three runs driven
in and a run scored.
The game was tight for the first four innings
as BRS scored single runs in the second, third
and fourth, but it broke the game open with a
five-run fifth. With one out, Lee walked, Luke
Stulbarg was hit by a pitch and Zach Wong
legged out an infield hit to bring up Luke
Bugbee. He jumped on the first pitch he saw,
stroking a two-run single. Josh Fong followed
with an RBI single to right-center field to put
BRS up 6-0. Following a strikeout, Lopez
ripped a double to left to drive in two more to
give Belmont-Redwood Shores an 8-0 lead.
Lopez appear to tire in the sixth, allowing a
double to Jacob Thiele. ABRS error put run-
ners on the corners and Thiele scored on a wild
pitch, but the other runner got thrown out at
second after getting caught in a rundown
between second and third.
Lopez then struck out the final batter he
faced as he reached the 85-pitch limit. Brad
Shimabuku came in to finish the game and got
a groundout to third to end it.
Belmont-Redwood Shores had a rally going
to start the game, putting runners on the cor-
ners with out in the top of the first, but Arizona
turned a double play to get out of the inning.
BRS then broke through in the second. Lee
doubled to lead off the inning and motored to
third when the left fielder misplayed the ball.
He scored on Stulbarg’s infield hit.
“[Stulbarg] is hitting the ball hard,” Rudy
Lopez said. “His role is to hit. He doesn’t play
defense and we told him to just focus on hit-
With one out in the third, Lopez reached on
an error and pinch runner Stulbarg eventually
scored on a Lee infield hit.
It appeared BRS ran out of a scoring oppor-
tunity in the fourth, when Bugbee was thrown
out at the plate trying to score from third on a
grounder and Josh Fong was then thrown out
at second for a double play.
But Noah Marcelo doubled to left and scored
on Lopez’s single to right.
On the mound, Lopez only had one jam to
work through. In the bottom of the third, a
walk, sacrifice bunt and single put Arizona run-
ners at the corners. But Lopez got back-to-
back strikeouts to end the inning.
“We talk about being 13 strong from the
beginning. It took the whole lineup for us to
be good,” Rudy Lopez said. “I thought we
could compete (in this tournament) and if
things fell right, we could do well. We’re doing
more than just competing. We’re playing very

But he also understands some sports need
to raise expectations, too.
In March, Muir practically mandated that
men’s basketball coach Johnny Dawkins
take the Cardinal to the NCAA tournament
for the first time since 2008 next season —
“We’ve now had ample time for him to real-
ly get us to take that next step,” Muir said at
the time — or a change could follow.
Muir has still managed to get away from
the job, too.
Muir said he and his wife, Liz, feel lucky
to be able to take their daughters, Libby and
Millie, to Stanford events and let them find
their own sports passions — which include
lacrosse and volleyball. Muir, a former bas-
ketball player at Brown, also goes to the

He had plenty of momentum after the sec-
ond hole, when a sand wedge from 105 yards
landed above the flag and spun back into the
cup. In what passes for emotion in Dufner’s
world, he doled out a couple of fist bumps to
his playing partners.
That was it.
Dufner tacked on five birdies in his bogey-
free round, which left him with a two-stroke
lead as he walked to the clubhouse.
Dufner was at 9-under 131 midway
through the tournament, tying the 36-hole
PGA scoring record held by six other play-
ers. Shingo Katayama and David Toms were
the last to do it, at the 2001 PGAin Atlanta.
But Dufner is hardly in the clear, not on a
course that has been easy pickings for the
world’s best players with its rain-softened
During a round that began in dreary rain
and finished in bright sunshine, Webb
Simpson shot 64 to tie the course scoring
record that was shared by Ben Hogan and
Curtis Strange. That lasted only a few hours,
before Dufner came along to beat them all.
There were 60s all over the board.
Just not from Tiger Woods.
Mired in the longest major drought of his
career, he plodded to a 70 that left him at 1-
over 141 for the tournament, a staggering
10 strokes off the lead and facing the very
real prospect of being 0 for 18 in the big
events since his 2008 victory at the U.S.
Others fared better.
Matt Kuchar shot 66, while 18-hole co-
leaders Adam Scott and Jim Furyk both post-
ed 68s, leaving all three tied at 7 under. U.S.
Open winner Justin Rose, bouncing back
from missing the cut at the British Open,
shot 6-under 29 over his final nine holes for
a 66 that left him three shots behind Dufner.
Henrik Stenson also was 6 under after a 66
of his own. Robert Garrigus (68) and Steve

Jason Hatcher recovered for Dallas at the
Raiders 16.
After a holding penalty, a tipped pass and a

Both quarterbacks fared far better on their
second drives with Flynn converting a pair of
third downs on passes to Denarius Moore and
Rod Streater to set up a 51-yard field goal by
Sebastian Janikowski after Dallas star defend-
er DeMarcus Ware left for the night.
Romo completed 5 of 6 passes for 77 yards
before Bailey’s field goal attempt was blocked
by Tyvon Branch.
Flynn’s night was over after going 4 for 5
for 37 yards.
“It’s good to get your feet wet a little bit, see
a different color helmet and really just play the
game,” Flynn said. “We did a pretty good job.
We’d like to get it in the end zone, but there are

ATLANTA — A jubilant Brian
Banks described his preseason debut
with the Atlanta Falcons as “better
than any roller-coaster ride you can
ever get on.”
Banks, 28, cherished that high
even more than a normal rookie
because his life has hit lows few can
Banks spent five years in prison
and five years on probation follow-
ing his conviction of rape and kid-
napping charges a decade ago. He is
free to finally pursue his career as a
NFL linebacker because the woman
who made the charge when Banks
was 16 and a high school junior
recanted her accusation.
The conviction was overturned
by a California court on May 12,
Banks, who signed with the
Falcons in March, had two tackles
in the Falcons’ 34-10 loss to the
Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday
Fans familiar with Banks’ come-
back story gave the former Long
Beach Polytechnic High School
standout a warm ovation during
pregame introductions.
The cheers lifted Banks’ spirits
even higher.
“It was out of control,” Banks said.
“Just running out there, the flames,
the cheers and the crowd, it was emo-
tional, it really was. I wasn’t nervous
at all. I wasn’t over-excited or any-
thing, but just running out of that
tunnel, I mean, the adrenaline that
comes with that is just indescribable.
“It’s better than any roller-coaster
ride you can ever get on.”
Banks had tryouts with Kansas
City, San Diego and San Francisco
and attended minicamp with Seattle
before spending the 2012 season
with Las Vegas of the United
Football League.
The Falcons then gave Banks
another chance to fulfill his NFL
The 6-foot-2, 250-pound Banks
needs a strong preseason to earn a
roster spot. He is listed as Atlanta’s
third-string middle linebacker,
behind Akeem Dent and Pat Schiller.
His preseason debut came late in
the game. His first tackle came when
he stopped Bengals running back
Daniel Herron following a 4-yard run
in the fourth quarter. Postgame stats
also credited Banks with an assist.

The bond’s aim is to rebuild and expand
Bowditch Middle School to add Foster City

School in San Mateo for the 2016-17 school
year, following a design process and con-
struction of about three years. It would cost

property value.
For elected office, there are currently five
certain contested elections out of 11 in the
Daily Journal coverage area.
For two open seats in the San Mateo
County Community College District, incum-
bent Richard Holober, retired college presi-
dent Tom Mohr, writer J. Samuel Diaz and

that longtime trustee Helen Hausman left this
past spring is up for grabs, along with
Holober’s seat.
In the Sequoia Union High School District
Board of Trustees race, incumbents Alan
Sarver and Christopher Thomsen and univer-
sity development and mother Georgia Jack
are running for two open seats.
In the Belmont-Redwood Shores

race there are seven candidates vying for three
open seats. The candidates include incumbent

Hegde, supply chain manager Amy Koo, par-
ent and educator Kelly Redmon and physi-
cian/executive/entrepreneur Herbert Rudolf

filing deadline has been extended to
In the San Carlos Elementary School
District Board of Trustees race, appointed
incumbents Carol Elliott and Kathleen
Farley, elementary school parent Sarah
Stiefel and community volunteer Nicole
Bergeron are running for three open seats.
Elliott and Farley were appointed when Carrie
Du Bois was elected to the Sequoia Union
High School District Board of Trustees and
Mark Olbert was elected to the San Carlos
City Council in November. Board President
Beth Hunkapiller is not running for re-elec-
tion so the filing deadline has been extended
to Wednesday.
There are three open seats in the
Hillsborough City School District Board of
Trustees race. Incumbent Lynne Esselstein,
parent Don Geddis, parent Kaarin A. Hardy
and physician and parent Pearl G. Wu are run-
ning. Trustees Steven Koury and Mary Ellen
Benninger are not seeking re-election so the

line extended to Wednesday but won’t require
an election if additional candidates don’t file.

District Board of Trustees race, nurse practi-
tioner and parent Kay Coskey and incum-
bents Davina Drabkin and Gregory Land are
running for the three open seats Trustee Liz

ing deadline has been extended to Wednesday.

Foster City Elementary School District Board
of Trustees, incumbent Lory Lorimer Lawson,
attorney and parent Chelsea Bonini and par-
ent and businessman Ed Coady are running.
Incumbents Ellen Mallory Ulrich and Julie
Chan are not seeking re-election so the filing
deadline has been extended to Wednesday.
And some races won’t need an election
since the number of candidates is the same as
the number of open seats.
In the Millbrae Elementary School District
Board of Trustees race, incumbents D. Don
Revelo and Denis Fama, and appointed
incumbent Lynne Ferrario, are running unop-
posed for three open seats.

Incumbent Warren Lieberman is running to
retain one of the three available seats as is
business owner Charles Stone, Planning
Commissioner Kristen Mercer, biotechnolo-
gy director Eric Reed and nonprofit director

Council manager Joshua Hugg and Alameda
County Deputy District Attorney Joe
Goethals have qualified. Councilman Brandt
Grotte is not seeking a third term which
extends that city’s nomination period into
next week.
South San Francisco’s City Council race
has a bit of a twist. The nomination window
is extended because the appointed incumbent
not running, Pradeep Gupta, is seeking a four-
year seat rather than retention of the two-year
seat. Running with Gupta for the three four-
year seats are Councilman Mark Addiego,
community volunteer William (Bill) Lock,
businessman Rick Ochsenhirt, businessman
John Harry Prouty and Liza Normandy, a
trustee with the South San Francisco Unified

“We’re the Millers” is an identi-
ty comedy with identity issues.
Jason Sudeikis plays a pot deal-
er who, as a disguise for smug-
gling a huge shipment of weed,
forms a fake family to drive an RV
across the Mexico border. He
gathers local stripper Rose
(Jennifer Aniston), surly home-
less teenager Casey (Emma
Roberts) and his young, naive
neighbor Kenny (Will Poulter).
The whole concept has two
motives: to lampoon the idea of
the traditional all-American fami-
l y, and as an excuse to get Aniston
to take off her clothes. Both are
worthy endeavors, but everything
in “We’re the Millers” feels forced
— a hodgepodge of comedic
rhythms made to lurch from one
crude gag to another.
Despite obvious comedic tal-
ents, Sudeikis and Aniston have
each had difficulty finding their
place in the movies, and neither
really fit their parts: small-time

FRANCISCO OPERA. San Francisco Opera presents the
world premiere of Dolores Claiborne, drawn from Stephen
King’s psychological thriller about a woman willing to do
whatever it takes to save herself and her daughter. The best
selling novel of 1992 in the United States, the intense story
was adapted into a 1995 feature film starring Kathy Bates. The
San Francisco Opera production marks the Company debuts
of American composer Tobias Picker and librettist J. D.
McClatchy and stars mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick in the title
role alongside Elizabeth Futral as Vera Donovan and Susannah
Biller as Claiborne’s daughter Selena St. George. San
Francisco Opera veterans Wayne Tigges and Greg Fedderly
portray Dolores Claiborne’s abusive husband Joe St. George
and Detective Thibodeau. Two hours and 30 minutes with one
intermission. Sung in English with English supertitles. The
production contains adult language and themes.
TICKET INFORMATION. Tickets for Dolores Claiborne
range from $23 to $385 and may be purchased at sfopera.com,
at the San Francisco Opera Box Office, or by phone at (415)
864-3330. Sept. 18 (7:30 p.m.), Sept. 22 (2 p.m.), Sept. 25
(7:30 p.m.), Sept. 28 (8 p.m.), Oct. 1 (8 p.m.) and Oct. 4 (8
p.m.). Standing Room tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on the day
of each performance for $10 each, cash only. Casting, pro-
grams, schedules and ticket prices are subject to change. For
further information about Dolores Claiborne and San
Francisco Opera’s 2013-14 Season visit sfopera.com.
STAGE DIRECTIONS. The home of the San Francisco
Opera is the 1932
War Memorial
Opera House at
301 Van Ness
Ave. at Grove
Street, across
from the rear
facade of San
Francisco City
Hall. The Opera
House is one of
the last Beaux-
Arts structures
erected in the
United States and has 3,146 seats plus 200 standing room
places. The Performing Arts Garage is on Grove between
Franklin and Gough Streets. BART lines serve the “Civic
Center” station three blocks away at Market and Eighth
AN ASIDE. The role of Dolores Claiborne was written for
American mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick. Zajick said,
“Playing strong women is something I have done for my
entire career and Dolores Claiborne is another such woman.
Accused of a murder she did not commit, she relives the one
she did commit in order to save her daughter. Her act of des-
peration after discovering her husband had sexually molested
their daughter was a dilemma faced by numerous women at a
time when there were few avenues for help. Tobias Picker has
created an opera that allows me to develop the character of
Dolores Claiborne — to show her as a woman of her time with
a personality that gained in strength when faced with adversi-
t y.”
FREE PRE-OPERA TALKS. Music Educator John
Churchill converses with Dolores Claiborne’s Composer
Tobias Picker and Librettist J.D. McClatchy before the Sept.
18 performance, and one-on-one with Picker before the per-
formances Sept. 22 through Oct. 4. These 25-minute
overviews of the opera are free to ticketholders and take place
in the Orchestra section 55 minutes prior to curtain.
A PLACE TO EAT. Why worry about missing curtain up?
Dine at the Opera House Café in the lower lobby of the Opera
House. The Café opens two hours before each evening and
Sunday matinee performance and serves both a buffet dinner
and a la carte dishes. Dining just steps from your seat elimi-
nates worries about missing the beginning of the perform-
ance (which begins exactly on time with no seating for late-
comers). Call (415) 861-8150 for reservations. Diners may
enter through the North Carriage entrance of the Opera House
(adjacent to the War Memorial courtyard).

LOS ANGELES — The lurid celebri-
ty and sordid aftermath of the brief
career of the world’s first porn star is
vividly, if not explicitly, etched in
“Lovelace.” Given all the ways a proj-
ect like this could have gone wrong,
the result is surprisingly good on sev-
eral fronts, beginning with a shrewd
structure that fosters an intelligent
dual perspective on the public and pri-
vate aspects of the “Deep Throat”
phenomenon. Leaving behind the
overly academic approach they
brought to an earlier cultural and cen-
sorship landmark in “Howl” three
years ago, directors Rob Epstein and
Jeffrey Friedman have made a real
movie here.
Linda Lovelace was the nom de porn
bestowed upon Florida girl Linda
Boreman when she starred in her one
and only hardcore feature, the 1972
film that became the adult film indus-
try’s first crossover smash, launched
“porno chic” and went on to gross
anywhere from $100 million to $600
million on an initial expenditure of
less than $50,000. Lovelace only
ever collected her salary of $1,250.
Lurking behind the entire enterprise
was not only the mob but, more inti-
mately, Lovelace’s husband and man-
ager Chuck Traynor. By her own
account, he threatened, beat and con-
trolled her; kept her money; forced
her into prostitution; and essentially
kept her prisoner until she finally got
away. Lovelace went on to write an
account of her experiences entitled
“Ordeal” and promoted anti-pornogra-
phy and women’s causes until her
2002 death in a car accident.
Her story is a sad, depressing and
degrading one, so grim at times that
one wonders if there’s any edification
to be had from it. To say that Lovelace
provides uplift by the end would be an
exaggeration, but the fact that the
one-time victim did not succumb but,
rather, stabilized her life and eventu-
ally fought back in every way she
could provides a sense of vindica-
t i on.
The early going is a bit
choppy as young Linda
(Amanda Seyfried), who
lives with her parents
(Robert Patrick and an
u n r e c o g n i z a b l e
Sharon Stone, both
excellent) in
wor ki ng- cl as s
Davie, Fla., is
escorted from
the innocuous
world of

When Chuck takes Linda
up to New York to push his
discovery on porn director
Gerard Damiano (Hank Azaria)
and producer Butchie Peraino
(Bobby Cannavale), she objects
that, “I don’t have any skills.”
Chuck protests that she does
have one, a specialty she has per-
fected that will give the movie its
title, lure upscale audiences to
porn for the first time and make its
star notorious.
After the “Deep Throat” frenzy
has hit its peak, the film abruptly
jumps ahead six years, with Linda tak-
ing a polygraph test to authenticate
her accusations against her vile
Svengali. And thus do the horrors of
the past few years begin to pour out:
the beatings, the forced
gang rapes, the pres-

‘Lovelace’ a smart look at first porn star
Sharon Stone: Happily
unrecognizable in role
By Jocelyn Noveck
NEW YORK — Actors make physical transformations
for roles all the time; it’s what they do.
Still, many have found it truly stun-
ning to see Sharon Stone — who at 55
still looks unnervingly like the sleek,
blonde, leg-crossing femme fatale she
played two decades ago in “Basic
Instinct” — appear dark, severe,
ungainly and nearly unrecognizable in
“NOBODY recognized her,” says
Amanda Seyfried, who plays Stone’s
daughter, the “Deep Throat” star Linda
Lovelace, in the film that opens Friday. “Harvey
Weinstein, if I remember correctly, did not know that
Sharon Stone was in it. She’s that good.”
But Stone says that while she’s happy people are
shocked, they may not realize that she also had to trans-
form herself to play that uber-sexy “Basic Instinct” role
back in 1992.
“It’s funny, because when I played ‘Basic Instinct,’
everybody thought I was playing something closer to
myself,” Stone said in a recent interview. “But in fact I
totally transformed myself to play that character. I didn’t
know how to go around looking like that.”
Of course, Stone added, “It was more fun to continue to
look glamorous and closer to that part — obviously I’m
not going to go out and look more like this character,
Dorothy Boreman, because I don’t want to! But I’m not
anything at all like that (Basic Instinct) part, and I’m not
like this part.”
In any case, she’s enjoying the reaction. “I like it
because I feel, like, I did it!” she said, her voice lowering
to a conspiratorial whisper. “Oh, I really did it!”
Stone has a history of surprising people, both off
screen — with occasionally controversial red-carpet com-
ments — and on. She may have been in legendary sex-
symbol territory after “Basic Instinct,” but she surprised
even herself by earning the 1996 Golden Globe for Martin
Scorsese’s “Casino,” beating out heavyweights like
Meryl Streep, Susan Sarandon and Emma Thompson. (She
also received an Oscar nomination for her admired per-
formance as a high-priced call girl.)
Her later films may not have been quite as successful,
but she remains a Hollywood fixture — a red-carpet
favorite, and a formidable fundraiser for AIDS research —
and “Lovelace” co-star Seyfried was gushing in praise of
Stone as an on-set mentor.
“I wanted to be so good for her,” Seyfried said. “I was
terrified that I was going to do my job poorly. But ... she
just said the right things. She helped me. She slapped me
into the role.”
Seyfried was speaking metaphorically AND literally: At
one point, mother slaps daughter. Another scene is even
harder to watch: Lovelace’s mother refuses to allow her
daughter to return home and take refuge from her physi-
cally abusive husband.
Stone, a single mother of three sons, said she focused
on the intentions of her character, not her actions.
“I think that my character felt she was being a good par-
ent by guiding her daughter into keeping her commit-
ments,” she said. “I think in that time, and from her ethi-
cal standpoint, she felt that keeping her commitment as a
wife, growing up, staying in a mature marriage ... that was
giving her daughter good advice. This was a different era.”
The movie is based on the 1980 memoir, “Ordeal,” by
Lovelace, who eventually renounced her porn career and
became an anti-pornography activist. (She died in 2002).
It tells a dark story of Lovelace’s virtual enslavement to
her husband, Chuck Traynor, who, she wrote, forced her
into making “Deep Throat,” kept her earnings, even
forced her into prostitution. But Stone noted that
Lovelace, after all, ended up leaving Traynor, marrying
again and having children.
“She took her life and transformed herself into some-
thing else,” Stone said. “I think the lesson is that it’s not
how we fall — it’s how we get up.”
Though she still cuts a glamorous swath wherever she
goes, and is meticulous about her image, Stone says she
feels comfortable with the inevitability of aging — and
the different acting roles it will bring.
“You know, I’m a grown-up lady,” she said. “I feel cer-
tain that I’m going to play adult characters and mothers
and ultimately grandmothers. I feel sure that I have grace-
fully surrendered the things of youth!”

Gilmour has a good sense of humor and a knack for spot-
ting enlightening details. His descriptions of some of the
emergency situations he encounters are vivid, and some of
the men and women he meets are worth basing novels on.
The best chapter is about Pakistan, where there is growing
competition in the ambulance industry at a time when
bombings and shootings provide plenty of work to go
underpinnings, “We’re the Millers”
remains the broadest of caricatures.
The film, too, comes from mixed
sensibilities. The script was begun by
“Wedding Crashers” scribes Bob
Fisher and Steve Faber, and finished by
“Hot Tub Time Machine” writers Sean
Anders and John Morris. “Dodgeball:
A True Underdog Story” director
Rawson Marshall Thurber keeps the
tone appropriately breezy, but under-
standably struggles to find the right
sense of timing.
“We’re the Millers” aims for a
nuclear family farce, pushing it one
step further than its obvious inspira-
tion, “National Lampoon’s Summer
Vacation”: Not only are they not the
gleaming picture of family life they
might seem, they’re not even a real
family. This naturally opens up a realm
of jokes along the lines of Kenny, in a
kissing lesson, smooching his sup-
posed mother and sister.
Every pit stop is a chance for gratu-
i t y. There’s a camp out with swingers
(Nick Offerman and Kathryn Hahn) and
a run-in with pursuing drug dealers that
inanely becomes Aniston’s strip tease.
As she did in “Horrible Bosses” (which
also co-starred Sudeikis) the actress
trades on the thrill of her sexuality,
which wouldn’t be necessary if a good
romantic comedy script captured her
girl-next-door snark. But it’s starting
to look unlikely she’ll ever find anoth-
er “The Good Girl” — or is really seek-
ing it.
As a diversion, one could do worse.
Sudeikis’s smart-alleck, Midwest
charm, masking a more devious
instinct, does a lot to carry the film.
The former “Saturday Night Live”
player has struggled to transition to
leading man roles, though he showed
promise in the little seen “AGood Old
Fashioned Orgy.”
But he’s straining here to keep the
ship righted. When the end-credit
bloopers roll, Sudeikis and Aniston,
free of the contrived plot, look like
they’re finally having fun.
“We’re the Millers,” a Warner Bros.
release, is rated R by the Motion
Picture Association of America for
crude sexual content, passive lan-
guage, drug material and brief graphic
nudity. Running time: 110 minutes.
One and a half stars out of four.

The showdown the audience awaited so
long is about to take place, placing Hank in
direct conflict with the villainous hero.
And it allows Dean Norris, who has played
Hank so skillfully for five seasons, to boldly
go mano-a-mano with series star Bryan
Cranston in their roles as now-out-in-the-
open archenemies.
“All along it was YOU,” Hank seethes in
the opener. “I will put you under the jail!”
“In six months you won’t have someone to
prosecute,” taunts Walt, who, after all, is
dying from terminal cancer. Then he adds as a
barely veiled threat: “Maybe your best course
would be to tread lightly.”
Don’t bet on Hank Schrader to tread light-
l y.
This is a high-profile summer for Dean
Norris, who, in June, premiered in “Under the
Dome,” playing crafty city father “Big Jim”
Rennie on the hit sci-fi thriller. Airing
Mondays at 10 p.m. EDTon CBS, it’s already
been picked up for a second season.
But, as Hank on “Breaking Bad” in its final
weeks, Norris is about to wrap up some long-
unfinished business. It’s any viewer’s guess
how that is gonna go.
With his first appearance, showing off his
Glock 22 at Walt’s 50th birthday party in the
series premiere, Hank seemed a potentially
problematic character. With his cocky,
macho style, he was perilously close to a
stereotype, and his placement as a foil to a
brother-in-law heading into the drug busi-
ness seemed a little too convenient as a sto-
rytelling gimmick.
But “Breaking Bad” has justified its every
deviant move with brilliance since that first
episode, while Norris has brought depth and
nuance to his character, emerging as fully the
equal of his fine fellow cast mates (including
Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, R.J. Mitte and Betsy
Brandt) as he displayed not just braggadocio
but also emotional trauma and, as the victim
of an ambush for which Walt was responsi-
ble, a leg brace from that nearly fatal shoot-
“Hank obviously started out as a typical
kind of cop character,” said Norris in an
interview earlier this week.
Indeed, series creator Vince Gilligan has
conceded that Hank, initially, “was a bit of a
mechanical construct” whose purpose, as
much as anything, was as a source of comic
“I always thought to myself, How did Vince
know I could do the character Hank evolved
into?” Norris mused over a Diet Coke in an
L.A. hotel dining room. “It’s not like he re-
auditioned me and said, ‘OK, now let’s do
some serious stuff and see how you handle it.’
Based on what I did in Season One, I couldn’t
understand what he could’ve seen in me to
allow him to write what he wrote later.”
The 50-year-old Norris grew up in South
Bend, Ind., where as a youngster he appeared
in school plays. Then he went to Harvard
University, continuing to follow his interest
in drama.
With graduation, he had a decision to
make: Would he be an academic, an invest-
ment banker — or opt for show biz?
He knew he’d made the right choice when,
not long after moving to Hollywood, he real-
ized he was supporting himself with acting
With his fireplug physique and bald-
ing pate, he was quickly slotted as a
cop-and-military type.
“Fortunately,” he says, “there are a lot of
those roles around.”
Of course, there aren’t many cops like
Hank around, and Norris readily acknowl-
edges this may be the most important char-
acter he ever plays.
But he’s proud of “Under the Dome,” which
he began filming in Wilmington, N.C., last
spring — after flying straight from the
“Breaking Bad” set in Albuquerque, N.M.,
just hours after wrapping production. He fin-
ished the season of “Dome” last week, then
dived into doing press for “Breaking Bad.”
“It wasn’t until now,” he said, “that I start-
ed processing the fact that it’s over.
‘Breaking Bad’ is something I’ll always
think about and miss.”
But now Norris, like so many other
“Breaking Bad” fans, will be glued to his TV
for the final run, which he knowledgeably
bills as “the best eight episodes of the entire
“I’ll be watching it Sunday nights, com-
plete with the commercials,” he declares.
And, yes, he’s fully aware that most TV-
series stars insist they don’t watch them-
selves and the shows they appear in.

Owner and Executive Chef Jose
Calvo-Perez is a San Francisco native
with restaurants in his blood. The
same year he graduated high school,
his father Julio opened the first of three
Fresca Peruvian restaurants in San
Francisco. He learned the business by
helping his parents run the Fresca
locations, and he also created and
owns the Inner Sunset Latin restaurant,
Calvo-Perez studied to be a firefight-
er at College of San Mateo before
enrolling at City College of San
Francisco, where he graduated from the
school’s renowned culinary arts pro-
gram. He continued his training at the
California Culinary Academy, and then
lived in Spain for a year, where he said
he had fun and honed his craft.
Calvo-Perez said the decision to
open a restaurant in Pacifica was unex-
pected, and came about after the
Pacifica Beach Hotel’s new owner sug-
gested the partnership.
“We never would have thought we’d
be in Pacifica,” said Calvo-Perez, “but
we thought, wow, we need to be here.
This just feels right.”
Calvo-Perez’s mother came up with
Puerto 27’s name. The number 27 is
significant because April 27, in addi-
tion to being the restaurant’s opening
date, is also the birthday of Calvo-
Perez’s older brother, also named
Julio. Julio died in a car crash in 1993.
To honor him, the dining room fea-
tures a multi-panel mural by artist and
restaurant designer Michael Brennan,
who superimposed an image of Julio’s
face over a stunning Peruvian lake
The mural depicts indigenous people
in reed fishing boats on Lake Titicaca,
and points to the history underlying
Puerto 27’s cuisine. History and nauti-
cal themes are also reflected in the
Sakura Maru, a Peruvian sashimi dish
Calvo-Perez named in honor of the
first ship to bring Japanese immi-
grants to Peru. He explained that
Japanese and Chinese influences are
very important in Peruvian cuisine.
Other offerings expressing this
Asian influence are the anticuchos.
Calvo-Perez said the beef skewers are
known as yakitori in Japan, and tradi-
tionally sold by street vendors in Peru.
His anticuchos can be ordered with
beef heart, chicken or swordfish.
Speaking of meat, Puerto 27’s
sources are local and organic. The beef
comes from Painted Hills Natural Beef
in Wheeler County, Ore. The duck
comes from Sonoma County, the fish
is always wild, and sourced in compli-
ance with the Monterey Bay
Aquarium’s sustainability guide.
“I really want to know where the fish
comes from, where it was caught and
what it was eating,” said Calvo-Perez.
The picante de mariscos, a mixed
stew of seafood and shellfish, nicely
showcases Calvo-Perez’s recipes and
ingredients. That it contains delicious,
slightly blackened, grilled corn on the
cob is just an added bonus. For an even
more uniquely Peruvian experience,
order the churrasco a lo pobre, and your
sirloin steak will come with a fried egg
on top.
Meanwhile, the side dishes have
their own little stories to tell. Order
papas fritas, i.e., French fries, and
they come with aji rocoto aioli instead
of ketchup or mayo. Delightfully, yet
inexplicably, the fries are served in a
little silver bucket.
Order lots of food to share, and din-
ner for two might come to $65 before
tip. Asimilar dining experience in San
Francisco could easily cost more than
Calvo-Perez hired San Francisco bar-
tender Enrique Sanchez to run the
impressive pisco bar that serves as the
dining room’s centerpiece. Pisco is a
type of Peruvian liqueur made from dis-
tilled grape brandy. Calvo-Perez said
the bar boasts 40 different piscos. He
said Puerto 27 infuses its piscos for
months before serving them.
Because restaurant work can be
stressful, one tends to notice when
restaurant employees appear to be hav-
ing a good time. That’s certainly the
case with server Anjelica Morgan, who
recently took the time to help a gluten

San Francisco Superior Court has
agreed to open its Civic Center court-
house on Sunday if necessary to hold a
hearing on the possible request by
Brown for an injunction.
“I urge all parties to think of the
public and resolve this matter without
delay, but if there’s no resolution by
Sunday, I will seek a 60-day cooling-
off period,” Brown said in a statement.
While Bay Area Rapid Transit man-

(SEIU) Local 1021. “We’re hoping in
spite of both parties knowing the gov-

both parties continue to be motivated
to achieve an agreement so that there
is no threat of a strike in October. ”
Antonette Bryant, president of
Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU)
Local 1555, added “our position is we
want a deal. The ability to make a deal
is on the table. Let’s get it done.
There’s no need to drag this out and
hold the public hostage. There’s no
need to hold our workers’ hostage.”
BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost
said, “It doesn’t change anything that
is taking place this weekend.
Everyone is working tirelessly to get
to a deal by Sunday night regardless of
what the governor just announced.”
The parties still remain tens of mil-
lions of dollars apart on wages, pen-
sions and health care benefits.
Negotiations began four months ago,
and the contract expired at the end of
BART said workers from the two
unions now average about $71,000 in
base salary and $11,000 in overtime
annually. The workers’ pay nothing
toward their pensions and pay a flat
$92 monthly fee for health insurance.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- When you look for
opportunities to better your lot in life, chances
are you’ll fnd them. However, all you’ll get is
disappointment if you fy too close to the sun. Be
realistic and don’t overstep your bounds.
VirGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Do not discount any
hunches you get concerning your business, fnances
or work-related affairs. Any one of them could
lead you to a valuable asset or help avert a minor
LiBra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Someone you meet
could be worth getting to know better. Chances
are, however, it will be up to you to extend the hand of
friendship. This person is much too reserved to do so.
sCOrPiO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you fnd yourself in
a situation that includes a number of people whom you
don’t know, don’t be shy. Making new acquaintances
will give you that lift you’ve been looking for.
saGiTTariUs (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Go ahead and
develop any ambitious ideas that come to you.
Chances are they won’t be as far-fetched as you or
anybody else thinks.
CaPriCOrn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An associate is
likely to impress you with his or her progressive
ideas. You’ll likely be able to adapt them to your
immediate needs.
aQUariUs (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You’ll know how
to put into play what others are merely talking
about. Acting frst will give you a big edge over your
PisCEs (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If there is some kind
of special information that you need, don’t wait for
it to come to you. Get on the phone or Internet and
contact people who have the answers.
ariEs (March 21-April 19) -- This can be a very
productive day if you focus on projects that require
deep ratiocination. You’re well-equipped to handle
duties or jobs of this ilk.
TaUrUs (April 20-May 20) -- Use your head instead
of your muscles when it comes to a major project
that is in need of good management. The best way
to get desirable results is to think your way through
GEMini (May 21-June 20) -- Be a good listener,
because there is a good chance that some business-
related information that has eluded you will come
your way. Keep your ears open and your mind alert.
CanCEr (June 21-July 22) -- Keep your
expectations within reasonable bounds and you’ll
have a proftable day. If, however, you look for more
than you deserve, it’ll be another story.

if the prisoners take you hostage, the guards
won’t help, he said. But his fears were
washed away when he first met with who he
calls residents there in 1991.
“After that one weekend, I decided I was
home,” he said. “It was one of the most
powerful experiences of my life.”
Restorative justice
Kelly, 84, lives in a senior community in
San Mateo, and still visits San Quentin
three times a week.
He talks with groups of 15 to 20 residents
about a variety of topics, from anger man-
agement, empathy, forgiveness and staying
connected with family.
The degree of sharing that goes on in
these groups is far beyond what he has wit-
nessed in groups outside of prison.
“It’s just so straightforward and honest,”
he said.
His work at the prison has turned him into
an advocate for restorative justice. The main
idea behind restorative justice is the idea
that human nature can change, said Kelly.
One part of restorative justice program at
San Quentin is encouraging criminals to
take full responsibility for their actions.
The program also focuses on the victims
coming to terms with their grievances.
Sometimes the victims will visit the
prison and talk directly to the perpetrators
about what it has taken for them to recon-
cile and forgive, said Kelly.
“Some powerful sharing goes on,” he
A third element of restorative justice is
making sure the next generation is not
doomed to repeat the same mistakes.
Residents explore what life circumstances
lead them to their own criminal activity, and
through this they discover that their
upbringings had a lot to do with it.
One resident who speaks at the prison
starts his talk by saying, “When I was born,
my dad was in prison and my mom was a
dope addict,” he said. “Some of their stories
are unbelievable.”
When Kelly learned about their back-
grounds, he discovered the residents were
simply leading the same lives and making
the same mistakes as the people who raised
“They say, ‘it was my turn to do what was
happening to me,’” he said.
But some of these people who are victims
of terrifying childhoods can change, he
“When people inside change, they
become the most powerful advocates,” he
said. “There are some very fine human
beings in San Quentin State Prison. I tell
them, ‘you have a wisdom that this world
A chance for change
The people who end up in prison are lucky
if they are afforded an opportunity to
change, said Kelly. He acknowledges that
not all people will change because some
have suffered too much trauma at an early
age, but said prisons do not do enough to
help those who can change.
“The system lacks the ability to discrimi-
nate between those who are rehabilitatable
and those who aren’t,” he said.
The first response when someone
becomes incarcerated should be to rehabili-
tate, not to simply keep them away from
society, said Kelly.
Most prisoners are not as lucky as the
ones in San Quentin, which has about 3,000
volunteers, said Kelly.
“They get excited to transfer to San
Quentin,” he said of the residents. “They are
so excited to finally get to do something
with their lives.”
Basic needs for kids
Along with helping criminals and vic-
tims, the concept of restorative justice
focuses on addressing the issues that lead to
For a community to prevent the cycle of
incarceration, schools need to address the
basic needs of kids, said Kelly.
“Imagine being a kid at San Mateo High
School and you see kids driving up to
school in brand-new cars,” he said. “And
when you go home, you’re lucky if there’s
dinner on the table.”
The disparity between rich and poor is
growing and these disparities affect how
kids perceive the world, said Kelly.
“It’s going to affect your view,” he said.
Teachers should realize that they have to
do more than teach, he said. They have to
look at what kind of support network each
child has or does not have.
The problem is teachers lack resources
Prison guards, through working over-
time, make twice as much as teachers, said
“We don’t respect the teaching profession
enough,” he said.
Samaritan House
Kelly did not have longtime aspirations
to develop a service organization like
Samaritan House, but the task found him.
In 1984, before the multitude of vibrant
community assistance organizations exist-
ed on the Peninsula, Kelly was helping out
with a program to distribute meals through
the Martin Luther King Community Center
in San Mateo.
“Before I knew it, they were twisting my
arm to run it,” said the San Francisco
Before he knew it, he was enlisted by the
county to help establish a system that
would provide basic needs for people.
Samaritan House came to the Peninsula in
1985, and Kelly was named the director.
What started as a referral service grew into a
direct service provider offering a shelter,
food assistance, medical clinics, case man-
agement, clothing and worker resources.
“Samaritan House is the most diverse
human services agency in the county,” said
The success of the Samaritan House was
largely due to the can-do attitude of its
board, said Kelly. No matter what need arose
in the county, “our board of directors said,
we’ll do it,” he said.
Building an organization that bettered the
community was extremely rewarding for
“It was an amazing experience,” he said.
“As much as this is an affluent area, there is
that not-so-visible group of people who are
struggling to survive.”
