Charter school might die

By Dana Yates

The Foster City Council will decide Monday whether to extend again a deadline for a high school advocacy group to produce a sufcient business plan or to relinquish the land to other types of development.

In question is four acres of land near the Foster City Civic Center the council agreed to set aside for a charter high school in 2006. Nearly two years later, the council must decide if the current business plan for an 800-student charter school is adequate or if it should allow the Foster City Education Foundation

and the Magnolia Science Academy until November to revise its nancing proposal. The lack of credible nancing is a major deciency in the business plan, Foster City staff stated in a report released to councilmembers this week. The proposal calls for a two-story,

46,750-square-foot building on two of the four acres. The remaining two acres will be used for parking. The school will hold a maximum of 800 students ranging from sixth grade to 12th grade. A previous proposal called for a maximum of 500 students between ninth and 12th grades.

The school is applying for its charter through the San Mateo Union High School District, which has repeatedly argued that the teen population in the district is not enough to warrant another high school.

A $78 annual parcel tax could go before voters in the BelmontRedwood Shores Elementary School District after a survey found strong support for a second levy. Talks of a parcel tax began within the district in May resulting in an opinion poll, the results of which will be shared with the Board of Trustees during a special meeting tonight. A $78 annual parcel tax lasting under nine years generated the best support, according to a study done by Godbe Research. A tax was supported by 72 percent of the 450 polled with 69 percent supporting a nine-year period and 78 percent in favor of a ve-year duration. Such a measure would require a two-thirds yes vote to pass. Maintaining quality education and public safety topped the most important issues of those surveyed. Retaining and attracting qualied teachers was also a priority. At the beginning of the survey, 73

percent of those surveyed responded they would or probably would support a $78 tax without any other information; 22 percent were opposed; and 5 percent had no opinion. The highest tax rate tested, $96 annual tax, earned 62 percent support. Support rose to 67 percent and 71 percent when the tax rate increased to $84 and $72 respectively. Taxes for $60 and $48 were supported at 74 percent and 76 percent respectively. Voters were given 16 potential programs to be funded by tax-generated revenue and asked which would make them more likely to support the measure. Maintaining math and science programs; retaining teachers; enhancing math and writing instruction; maintaining small math classes; keeping music programs; retaining reading specialists; maintaining special education assistance; and upgrading and supporting technology gained the most

WASHINGTON The nations leaders are running out of answers to Americas economic crisis.

Foster City campuses for the upcoming year three at Brewer Island, two at Audobon and one could potentially be opened at Foster City. The addition creates space for an additional 120 students. Present boundaries create an unbalanced enrollment at the three Foster City schools, said Rosas. Earlier this month, the Board of Trustees was given a number of potential routes to alleviate some of the growth including redrawing boundary lines; increasing Foster City Elementary and adding a vice principal; reopen Knolls Elementary as an overow option; or implement a city-wide lottery. Another option would be to turn Foster City Elementary, which is a bigger campus, into a school for kindergarten through third grade with Audubon Elementary for third through fth grades. The board directed staff to look into the lottery. At least one city ofcial isnt convinced that route is the best for Foster City.

A growing population of young children in Foster City poses a problem for local school leaders where will all the kids go? Recent enrollment projections see an estimated 291 extra school-aged kids in Foster City within the next four years a number similar to the population of smaller elementary schools within the San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District. Foster City growth is not the only area within the district facing some issues. Each problem is unique however, forcing the district to examine a number of different possible solutions for the additional 992 students projected to be in the district by 2012, according to estimates by demographer Tom Williams. Weve had this many children in the district before, said Joan Rosas, assistant superintendent of student services. But that was before class-size reduction. Class-size reduction was established in 1996 to improve education, particularly reading and math, in children in kindergarten through third grades, according to the

Through the program, classes in those grades require a 20:1 average student to teacher ratio compared to the 27:1 ratio within higher grades in the district.

Williams estimated the district will break the 11,000 mark in 2011. A large majority of the students an estimated 291 over the next four years will be from Foster City.

Stepdad facing third strike for electrical bill attack

By Michelle Durand

A Redwood City man accused of attempting to strangle his 18-year-old stepson during an argument over the electrical bill faces 55 years to life in prison after a jury convicted him on multiple charges. Jurors deliberated two days before nding Matthew Stout, 38, guilty of assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment and dissuading witnesses. The jury deadlocked on a charge of making criminal threats. Prior to trial, Stout plead no contest to mul-

tiple misdemeanor counts of violating a previous court protective order. Afterward, Judge Craig Parson found true Stouts prior convictions, making the two-time convict eligible for a three-strikes sentence which leaves him Matthew Stout open to 55 years to life in prison. Stout has prior convictions for robbery and assault.

On Sept. 3, according to the District Attorneys Ofce, Stout argued with his stepson over their electrical bill, particularly the amount of energy the younger man spent playing music. The squabble allegedly escalated to a point where Stout put his knee into his stepsons chest, squeezed his hands around his neck and threatened to kill him. Stouts wife and others tried unsuccessfully to pull him off and eventually he let go, according to the prosecution. Stout remains in custody in lieu of $500,000 bail. He returns to court Sept. 22 for sentencing.

Accident leaves vehicles stacked on Highway 101
A six-vehicle accident that left involved cars stacked on top of each other yesterday afternoon was cleared by the California Highway patrol from Highway 101 in East Palo Alto around 5:40 p.m. The accident was reported in the southbound lanes just south of University Avenue at 4:23 p.m., a CHP dispatcher said. The two left lanes were blocked but no injuries were reported, the dispatcher said. The stacking of cars occurred when some of the drivers hit their brakes, causing their vehicles to lodge underneath the rear fenders of the car in front of them, the CHP reported. Vehicles involved in the crash included a red Subaru Legacy, a blue Honda Civic, a beige Hyundai Sonata and a Ford vehicle, according to the dispatcher. A Sig-alert was issued at 4:34 p.m. and canceled at 5:38 p.m.

Defense wants dog killing case tossed

Felony animal charges against a man accused of kicking his girlfriends Chihuahua to death should be dismissed because prosecutors allowed the animals body to be destroyed, according to the defense. Defense attorney Dana Mendelson plans to argue July 31 for the dismissal of charges against her client Ariel Alcides Aspedilla. Mendelson could not be reached for comment but during a pretrial conference yesterday she indicated her motion was based on the unavailability of the female Chihuahua mix named Chiquita. Mendelson reportedly wants the dogs remains to have her own experts determine the cause of death. The dogs body was stored at the Peninsula Humane Society and decomposed, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Typically, his ofce releases all bodies human and animal in criminal cases to next of kin or owners within days, he said. Based on her theory, we should keep bodies preserved for years until trials are resolved, Wagstaffe said. After performing a necropsy, PHS keeps an animal only as long as directed by the District Attorneys Office, said spokesman Scott Delucchi. In Chiquitas case, the necropsy was performed by a private veterinarian whose suspicion sparked PHSs involvement and the criminal charges, Delucchi said. He referred further comment on the case to the District Attorneys Office but said a necropsy can typically only be performed, making what further tests might be requested unclear. Around 8:30 a.m. March 6, according to prosecutors, Aspedilla awoke at his girlfriends Redwood City apartment to discover her female Chihuahua mix dog, Chiquita, had defecated and urinated on the bed as they slept. Aspedilla reportedly became so enraged he kicked the dog four or ve times. The dog sustained ve broken ribs, punctured lungs and liver and a substantial blood loss, according to the necropsy. Aspedilla, 26, of Manteca, has pleaded not guilty and will plead his case to a jury this fall. Animal cruelty cases can be charged as either felonies or misdemeanors. The stiffer convictions are more difficult to attain because the penal code requires demonstrated maliciousness and intent. If convicted of the felonies, Aspedilla faces up to three years in prison. The District Attorneys Ofce has received hundreds of e-mails urging strong prosecution of the case. Aspedilla remains in custody in lieu of $50,000 bail and returns to court Sept. 18 for jury trial. Michelle Durand can be reached by e-mail: or by phone: (650) 344-5200 ext. 102.

Burglary suspect found inside home

San Carlos police investigating reports of a burglary Sunday afternoon located a suspect hiding in the rear bedroom of a home previously lived in by his father. Ofcers were called around 12:30 p.m. to a home at 930 Cherry St. by a neighbor who reported a burglary was in progress and a window had been smashed, police said. While searching the area around the home, police found a broken window in the rear bedroom and located the suspect, Joshua Gero of San Mateo, inside. Geros father lived in the home before dying in December, and Gero apparently wanted to retrieve items left inside, Sgt. Ron Albertson said. Gero had been advised not to return to the home and was unable to gain access to the home as the locks had been changed. Ofcers took him into custody at gunpoint, and he was booked into San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of residential burglary. Police said no other burglaries were reported in the area.

Woman brings loaded gun to courthouse

By Dana Yates

A woman is in jail after trying to bring a loaded gun into the San Mateo County Northern District court house in South San Francisco yesterday. Melona Mayorga, 33, of Daly City, was detained by security guards at the courthouse at 1050 Mission Road shortly after 9 a.m. when an X-ray machine detected a gun in her

purse. Security determined it was a loaded .22 caliber handgun, said Lt. Marc Alcantara of the San Mateo County Sheriffs Ofce. Mayorga was arrested by deputies without incident. She was booked into San Mateo County Jail on $50,000 bail. She is facing three felony charges one for having a weapon in a public building and two other felony charges related to rearm procession, Alcantara said. It is unclear why Mayorga was visiting the

courthouse or why she had the gun. She will, however, return there today for her arraignment. Mayorga is scheduled to be arraigned at 1 p.m. in the Northern District Court, Alcantara said. Alcantara could not immediate say how often security catches people with weapons.

Mass. Senate votes to let out-of-state gays marry

By Steve LeBlanc

BOSTON Out-of-state gay couples got one step closer to a Massachusetts wedding Tuesday when the state Senate voted to repeal a 1913 law that has been used to bar them from marrying here. The law prohibits couples from obtaining marriage licenses if they

cant legally wed in their home states. The House is expected to vote on the repeal measure later this week. The Senate action came on a voice vote. After Massachusetts became the rst state to allow gay marriages in 2004 under a court order, then-Gov. Mitt Romney ordered town clerks to enforce the then-little-known 1913

law and deny licenses to out-of-state couples. That move blocked Maine residents Michael Thorne, 55, and James Theberge, 50, from getting married in Massachusetts four years ago. They were among eight out-ofstate gay couples who sued but lost in 2006 when the same court that allowed gay marriage refused to toss out the 1913 law.

The Burlingame Elementary School District called a special meeting to vote on two contracts. The rst is for the lease or lease purchase of computer equipment and supplies from AIXTEK d.b.a. Eaton and Association. Secondly, the board will vote to authorize for the purchase of SmartBoards. The board meets 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 16 at the District Ofce, 1825 Trousdale Drive.

banks and other nancial companies have been pounded. I fear that were sitting on a nancial powder keg, Bernanke was told by Sen. Richard C. Shelby of Alabama, senior Republican on the Banking Committee. Mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac hold or guarantee about half the home mortgages in the United States. Their stocks have lost about 80 percent of their value over the past year. Over the weekend, the two were thrown a lifeline by the Treasury Department and the Fed. But if investor jitters prevent them from being able to sell bonds to nance new mortgages, it could have far-reaching economic consequences. And the risk of runs on banks is still present, although minimized by federal deposit insurance on accounts up to $100,000 and by other federal safeguards. Regulators seized IndyMac, a large California-based savings and loan bank, on Friday after hundreds of depositors lined up to withdraw funds at branches. The bank reopened Monday under federal control. Bush counseled calmness. I happened to witness a bank run in Midland, Texas, one time. Ill never forget the guy standing in the bank lobby saying, your deposits are good. We got you insured. You dont have to worry about it if you got less than $100,000 in the bank. The problem was, people didnt hear. And theres a ... nervousness. My hope is, is that people take a deep breath and realize that their deposits are protected by our government. Horrall has the unique problem of having students coming from two areas outside of the neighborhood. Some students come from the North Shoreview area. The elementary in that area is a Montessori school, which not all parents nd to be a t for their student. In those cases, most of the students end up attending Horrall, explained Rosas. The district will begin looking into bussing. Also, San Mateo-Foster City offers open enrollment meaning students can attend any school, space permitting. Rosas plans to make parents more aware of their options moving forward. Lastly, enrollment boundaries will change


But nearly $1 billion of IndyMacs approximately $19 billion in deposits was uninsured, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. The administration unveiled a U.S. rescue plan for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but it has not put a pricetag on it. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said the administration did not intend to nationalize the companies and wanted to preserve their shareholder-owned structure. Still, he said a regulatory overhaul was needed. Congress is also working on legislation that would modernize the Federal Housing Administration and create a new regulator and tighter controls for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. If the government wound up taking over the two companies, it would have to assume more than $5 trillion in mortgage debt that the two companies now either own or back. That would add to a federal debt fast approaching the $10 trillion mark. Bernanke defended the Feds decision to help rescue Bear Stearns as well as Fannie and Freddie. If problems arent contained, they can ripple throughout the economy, hurting everyone, he said. Financial stability is critical to economic stability. David Jones, an economist at DMJ Advisors and a longtime Fed watcher, said Bernankes testimony suggested that the Feds emphasis has shifted to nancial stability, perhaps signaling that it will leave interest rates unchanged until late 2008. for one block currently slated to attend Beresford. Those students could begin attending Laurel Elementary which has extra space. Students already enrolled will be able to remain at Beresford.

GM makes LEADERS major cuts to survive


DETROIT General Motors Corp., struggling to survive, will slash jobs, cut production, sell assets and suspend its dividend for the rst time in 86 years as it tries to ride out an unprecedented collapse of its core U.S. market. Tuesdays actions, which the company said will save $15 billion through 2009, carry a more urgent tone than past roadmaps to recovery. This time, GM is facing one of the most serious threats in its nearly 100-year history, with one analyst speculating that the worlds largest automaker by sales could wind up seeking bankruptcy protection. GM said if its latest, unoptimistic predictions hold true, it will have enough cash to sustain itself to 2010. But with no guarantee that the economic slump and U.S. sales downturn have hit bottom, the latest addition to a long string of restructuring efforts may not be enough to keep GM from going the way of Studebaker.

sound despite the current turmoil. But they both tempered their remarks with warnings and expressions of uncertainty. Bernanke warned that the U.S. economy faces numerous difculties, that the outlook for ination is unclear and that nancial markets and institutions remain under considerable stress. Bush told a news conference: The president doesnt have a magic wand. He was answering a question about soaring fuel prices but his remarks seemed to sum up the governments overall predicament. After years of seeming tame, ination is again on the rise, led by higher food and fuel costs. But the Fed, which usually ghts ination by boosting interest rates, nds itself unable to use that weapon any more it already has pushed rates down to 2 percent from 5.25 percent in response to the housing crisis without threatening to undermine an economy that is either in recession or growing anemically. With soaring budget decits, swollen from the costs of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and increased spending on homeland security, theres only so much taxpayer money for bailing out failing nancial institutions. Stocks are in a bear market, and shares of begins. Foster City is not alone in its enrollment problems. Baywood, Beresford and Horrall elementary schools, all in San Mateo, are also facing challenges. Space has been a challenge at Baywood for some time. The small neighborhood campus next to Aragon High School has little room to grow. Parents with incoming kindergartners often line up early to secure a spot. Increased capacity is planned for the campus, however, utilizing Measure L money funds voters approved in November. The board was not interested in implementing a lottery for the campus.

ers to create housing without a recognition of the actual need of those who make less than the average resident, then we as a populace are becoming misguided. It is essential that we have studies, particularly around downtown areas in which there is a potential for development. However, such studies should be based upon, in fact charged upon, the ideals of the people who ultimately are paying for it immediately and eventually. The idea of 75-foot buildings in downtown Burlingame is an obscure reference to a time in which such ideas would solely benefit a small group of people who held property and not the ones who live and die in the city. Such a discussion is worthy of serious consideration and concern. But in fact, the notion itself should perish.

Heights,but at what cost?

eventy-five feet is too high for downtown Burlingame. There is no other way to describe what may happen in this city which is known for its quaint and unique personality. There are high buildings, particularly at Burlingame Avenue and El Camino Real, that have been here for years. However, expanding such a notion in nearby areas is not, despite a citizen advisory committee recommendation, what the community is looking for in the area. Howard Avenue has continued to be an area of concern for its lack of development, but no one can argue downtown Burlingame is suffering from any lack of interest in development. In fact, there are a number of new stores and developments downtown that would not necessarily benefit from 75-foot build-

ings on Chapin Avenue, which is between the retail area and City Hall. Any new development in the southern end of downtown near City Hall would ruin the pristine nature of the citys downtown. It would forever change the very nature of the city. Burlingame should take a certain solace in the fact that it is well designed overall with a train station near a large park and a main retail core that is bordered by a civic center that not only includes a city hall but a library, one that many from elsewhere marvel upon. The idea of public plazas is one thing upon which we all agree. As once called upon by this newspaper, the idea of a public gathering place at Highland Avenue and California Drive is an appropriate use of space and worthy of consideration. Creating a gathering place for people at the Post Office may be more problematic since dealing with the United States government and its employees is less than desirable. There is a need for more housing on the Peninsula and specifically in Burlingame. Everyone knows that. We all know that. But if the notion that we as a people should create opportunities for greedy land owners and develop-

Letters to the editor

My dog and I need mojo
Editor, In regards to Jon Mays column, The Story of the stache in the July 11 edition of the Daily Journal, I really think he has got something. I used to have a stache but went clean about eight years ago. Well, since then things have gotten pretty rough. Lets see ... two terms of Bush, seemingly endless war, stock and home values plummeting, gas prices sky rocketing, foreclosures galore, unending deficient spending, the dollar is diving, confirmed global warming, my state may gamble on gambling to avoid impending bankruptcy and a whole lot more conflict seems just around the corner; and oh yeah, my dog died. OK, not all true ... me and the dog are still hanging on. Enough all ready, the stache is a comin back (and so are the Democrats) ... now thats some serious mojo Mr. Mays. Galine, straight, I, like the other 99.99 percent of the (local) public was not present at the scene of the incident involving his client Doug Burns. Instead, I read the stories that were printed in each of the 3 local newspapers including the Daily Journal, Daily News and San Mateo County Times. I based my opinion and letter(s) to the editor on what I read in those newspapers. I, like the rest of the public, rely on the professionalism and accuracy of the reporters when they report a story. I simply read all the information fed to us (the public) by the local newspapers and fed it back to the newspapers in the form of a letter to the editor with my own opinion. Twisting and turning facts and circumstances is lying. So is changing ones story or memory. Everything I mentioned was printed in the local newspapers. Keep up the great job of accurate reporting Daily Journal (and Daily News, San Mateo County Times). Freedom of the press, freedom of speech and the right to express my own opinion, thats what makes America great. So does being responsible for your own actions; respecting others opinions; and obeying the law. vative estimates indicate that 90 percent of dieters regain their lost pounds within two years. After five years, that figure reaches nearly 100 percent. Exercises track record beats dieting hands down. The National Weight Control Registry the group that tracks Americans who have effectively lost weight reports that the one common formula for success among its members is not how little they eat or how often they record their food, but how much they move. Healthy doesnt mean cataloging every snack. Its about all of our small, daily choices: turning off the TV, climbing the stairs and taking that extra step. jams and possible accidents. I realize this would not be applicable in every situation due to different road levels or permanent barriers but there would be many times when it would be applicable.

Kreitmans confusion
Editor, Congratulations to Keith Kreitman for his opinion piece, The American Centurions in the July 12 edition of the San Mateo Daily Journal. He has come a long way from his columns of several years ago when he at least appeared to support the war in Iraq. In this latest piece he clearly makes the comparison of the United States to the Roman centurions and says that the Iraqi citizens are reacting as would any nation endeavoring to dislodge an invading occupier. And most of all Kreitman slams the incompetent president and a purely evil vice-president for how they have conducted this undeclared war and illegal invasion. All well and good; but then, very strangely, Kreitman comments that, There is much to be said for what I perceive to be the original intent of the invasion: Control over the third largest proven reserve of oil in the world in order to assure our American economic gears would never grind to a halt. In short, he still seems to justify, and at the same time condemn, our illegal invasion and removal of the vicious and immoral Saddam Hussein. It seems, again, that Mr. Kreitman is just upset that we didnt do a better job of it. Apparently, with the botched up way things have been handled, we may have to suffer the indignity of having to buy the oil, which still belongs to the Iraqis, not to us, like everyone else. This still leaves the question of what part of illegal invasion does Mr. Kreitman not understand?

Traffic suggestion
Editor, I have a suggestion that I think would keep the flow of traffic going around a major accident such as we had recently on Highway 101 and many times in the past when the road is shut down for hours. Why cant the center divider barriers be moveable so that 4 or 5 of them can be moved out of the way to allow traffic to enter the left lane of the oncoming traffic and proceed past the accident where another opening would be provided for them to reenter their side of the freeway. Of course the left lane of the oncoming traffic would have to be closed off for a while with the appropriate signs and cones. Traffic control officers would keep the traffic moving on both sides of the freeway. On the accident side the officer would allow, for example, 20 or 30 cars to proceed from each lane alternately. The traffic would be slow but it would keep moving and lessen the frustration of the drivers if they know they will soon be moving. This is a better alternative to rerouting all the traffic onto city streets causing more

Appreciating the right to free speech

Editor, I want to thank the editor of the Daily Journal for publishing the letter from Donald Galine (Inaccurate free speech in the July 9 edition of the Daily Journal). For awhile I was worried that no one read my letter Burns is responsible for his own actions in the July 1 edition of the Daily Journal and that Doug Burns legal case would just fade away. Thanks Galine for responding to my letter. I want to also thank Galine for acknowledging my right to freedom of speech and my right to say my opinion whenever I want. The right to freedom of speech is not limited to lawyers or people who can afford lawyers, but to all people. I hope that Galine knows the difference between the right to express my opinion versus mouthing off. Just to set the record, and

Moving instead of counting

Editor, San Mateo Countys proposed law claims to fight obesity by forcing every restaurant customer to wade through fat grams and calorie counts before ordering lunch (Whats the skinny on the menu from the July 10 edition of the Daily Journal). As such, menu labeling is effectively an endorsement of dieting: a method proven not to be a sustainable weight loss solution. Though most people can lose weight (by counting calories, cutting carbs, eating only cabbage soup), keeping it off is an entirely different matter. Even conser-

Oil prices Paulson: Mortgage assistance is backup plummet

By Adam Schreck

NEW YORK Oil prices fell harder than they have in 17 years Tuesday, as fears that record fuel prices are spreading broad economic pain exacerbated the third big sell-off in just over a week. Light, sweet crude plunged $6.44, or 4.4 percent, to settle at $138.74 a barrel in an extremely volatile session. Prices at one point plummeted more than $10 from the days high. Mounting concerns about the risks ination poses to the United States, the worlds biggest oil consumer, helped spark the declines. Analysts also attributed the sell-off to Thursdays expiration of options contracts, which tend to increase volatility, and to computers programed to automatically sell once prices reach certain thresholds. There was this big ... selling pressure when prices dipped below $140 a barrel. It got a lot of bulls very nervous, said Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service. If it was a re, youd call it an accelerant. The drop, which eclipsed last Tuesdays slide of $5.33, marked the biggest decline in dollar terms since the Gulf War. Even so, prices remain no lower than they were a week ago.

WASHINGTON Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said Tuesday the Bush administration has no immediate plans to extend emergency loans to mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac or to purchase the stock of the two companies. Paulson told the Senate Banking Committee that the assistance plan put together by the administration and the Federal Reserve over the weekend was intended to serve as a backup if needed. He said that if the government extends any nancial backing to the two institutions it will be done under terms and conditions that protect the U.S. taxpayer.

Before Paulsons appearance, Sen. Jim Bunning, R-Ky., told Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke that he was very upset with the rescue package for Fannie and Freddie that had been unveiled on Sunday. The Treasury secretary Henry Paulson is asking for a blank check to buy as much Fannie and Freddie debt as he wants for this unprecedented intervention in our free markets, Bunning said, questioning whether the government had gotten any assurances from the two mortgage giants that the problems they are facing will not be repeated. Other senators, in their opening remarks, also expressed questions about what the

administration was proposing. The administration is hoping that Congress will quickly pass legislation needed to put parts of its rescue proposal into effect. Paulson in his remarks sought to assure lawmakers that what the administration is proposing will not put taxpayers at undue risk. He said the plan was necessary to help the nations battered housing market get back on its feet and relieve stresses in nancial markets where investors are worried about a rising tide of bad mortgage loans. Our plan is aimed at supporting the stability of nancial markets, not just these two enterprises, Paulson said, referring to Fannie and Freddie. This is consistent with Treasurys mission to promote the market stability, orderliness and liquidity necessary to support our economy.

Intel 2Q profit jumps 25 percent, beats estimates

By Jordan Robertson

SAN FRANCISCO Intel Corp.s secondquarter prot jumped 25 percent as blossoming sales of laptop chips helped the company cruise past Wall Streets estimates Tuesday. Investors viewed the chip makers favorable results as a sign that global PC demand is healthy despite a sputtering U.S. economy that has depressed some domestic spending. Intel

CEO Paul Otellini said demand for Intels chips remains strong in all segments and all parts of the globe. Three-quarters of Intels business is outside the U.S. Intel shares rose 23 cents, or 1.1 percent, to $20.94 in after-hours trading. They had risen 24 cents, or 1.2 percent, to $20.71 in the regular session before the Santa Clara-based company reported its results. Intel said its net income was $1.6 billion, or 28 cents per share, in the three-month period ending June 28.

That was 3 cents per share higher than what analysts surveyed by Thomson Financial were expecting. It was a 25 percent jump from the $1.28 billion, or 22 cents per share, that Intel earned a year ago. Intel is proting from surging global demand for laptops and the processors that power them, though lower prices for some of the fastestgrowing models drove down Intels closely watched average selling price in the latest quarter.

Stocks end mostly lower

By Madlen Read

Wall Street
uncertainty of the nancial sector made that recovery hard to sustain. If oil prices stabilize or retreat, consumers might feel more comfortable spending on discretionary items, and in turn help the economy. Theres definitely a correlation between high energy prices and low consumer spending, and we need that to abate to get us a break, said Kim Caughey, equity research analyst at Fort Pitt Capital Group. A barrel of light, sweet crude dropped $6.44 to settle at $138.74 on the New York Mercantile Exchange as traders bet that the weak economy in the United States and elsewhere will take its toll on global demand. While some of the markets most battered bank stocks including Washington Mutual Inc., Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., and regional bank First Horizon National Corp. finished higher Tuesday, most bank stocks gave up their brief

NEW YORK Wall Street ended a whipsaw day mostly lower, as fears of escalating instability in the nancial sector kept investors on edge despite a steep retreat in oil. The Dow Jones industrials on Tuesday had their rst close below 11,000 since July 2006. Just days after the government said it would aid Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac if necessary, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Congress the U.S. economy faces numerous difculties. During the days testimony, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson also said the Bush administration has no immediate plans to lend money to the mortgage giants or buy their stock. Shares of Fannie and Freddie which together hold or back nearly half of all the nations mortgages tumbled again. The stock market did benet from some bargain-hunting as oil retreated from its near-record levels, but the

rallies by the end of the session. The Dow fell 92.65, or 0.84 percent, to 10,962.54. It was the blue chips lowest close since July 21, 2006; the high price of oil is one of the major reasons the Dow has been trading at nearly two-year lows. Broader stock indicators ended mixed. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 13.39, or 1.09 percent, to 1,214.91, while the Nasdaq composite index rose 2.84, or 0.13 percent, to 2,215.71. The technology-dominated Nasdaq got a lift from Microsoft Corp., which rose $1, or 4 percent, to $26.15 after an Oppenheimer & Co. analyst said the software companys shares look attractive ahead of its quarterly results scheduled for Thursday. Intel Corp. also rose ahead of its earnings, which were released after the market closed Tuesday and showed a 25 percent prot increase that beat analysts expectations. After advancing 24 cents to $20.71 in regular trading, Intel shares rose another 29 cents to $21.00 in afterhours trading.

Bernanke:Economy faces difficulties

By Jeannine Aversa

WASHINGTON Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Congress Tuesday the fragile economy is facing numerous difculties despite the Feds aggressive interest rate reductions and other fortifying steps. At the same time, Bernanke, testifying before the Senate Banking Committee, sounded another warning that rising prices for energy and food are elevating ination risks. This problem looms even as ofcials try to cope with persistent strains in nancial markets, rising joblessness and housing problems. The situation, he said, poses signi-

cant challenges for Fed policymakers as they try to chart the best course for keeping the economy growing, while making sure inflation doesnt dangerously flare up. All the Ben Bernanke economys problems including slumping home values, which threaten to make people feel less wealthy and less inclined to spend in the months ahead represent signicant downside risks to economic growth. Over the rest of this year, the economy will grow appreciably below its trend

rate mostly because of continued weakness in housing markets, high energy prices and tight credit conditions, Bernanke said. President Bush tried to strike an encouraging note: The bottom line is this: Were going through a tough time. but I believe we will come through this challenge stronger than ever before. On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial average 92.65 to 10,962.54. It was the blue chips lowest close since July 21, 2006. Bernankes testimony comes just two days after the Fed and the Treasury Department came to the rescue of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, offering to throw them a nancial lifeline.

Downturn gains steam as inflation roars ahead

By Martin Crutsinger and Jeannine Aversa

WASHINGTON The U.S. economic downturn gained steam Tuesday, with a report of the highest ination since the early 1980s, more bad news for banks and automakers and a suggestion by the Federal Reserve chief that worse days are ahead.

President Bush sought to bolster condence by declaring that the nancial system was basically sound, but he conceded: Its been a difcult time for many American families. The Labor Department said wholesale ination, driven by skyrocketing gas and food costs, rose by 9.2 percent for the 12 months ending in June the fastest pace since the summer of 1981, during another energy crunch. At the same time, Tuesday, executives from the three companies painted very different pictures of an agreement that will allow Google to sell some of the ads displayed alongside search results on Yahoos Web site. While Microsoft said the deal would limit competition and raise prices in the online advertising market, Yahoo and Google insisted it would benet consumers and advertisers. The stakes are high for Yahoo. It has embraced the partnership with its rival Google as an alternative to a $47.5 bil-

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke delivered a somber midyear outlook to Congress, saying the U.S. faces numerous difculties despite the Feds interest rate-cutting campaign, which began last September in hopes of preventing a recession.

But that decision to reject Microsoft has spawned a showdown with shareholders and activist Carl Icahn, who is trying to overthrow Yahoos board and CEO Jerry Yang. If Washington somehow scuttles the partnership with Google, Yahoo could nd itself under even more pressure to head into some kind of deal with Microsoft after all.

Twin suicide attacks kill 28

By Sebastian Abbot

Marines charged in nurses slaying appear in court

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. Its a scene thats become all too familiar in North Carolinas military communities. For the third time in seven months, a young woman serving her nation has been slain at home, away from the dangers of combat. It is so close to home, and it is back to back, said Takisha Word, 30, a combat veterans daughter from Fayetteville. It kind of makes you leery. The latest is Army 2nd Lt. Holley Wimunc, 24, a maternity ward nurse at Fort Braggs Womack Army Medical Center whose body was found Sunday not far from Camp Lejeune.

BAQOUBA, Iraq Scattered sandals and overturned bicycles were all that remained hours after suicide bombers struck the Saad military camp. Medical staff had finished unloading the white body bags at the nearby hospital, where the wounded moaned on bloodstained floors and weeping soldiers kneeled over slain comrades. The twin blasts in Baqouba recalled the scenes of mass terror and grief that were almost a daily routine before last years steep decline in violence. In an old tactic of Sunni extremists, two suicide bombers set off explosives among the army recruits Tuesday, killing at least 28. Violence also flared in the northern city of Mosul, where a dozen people died in bombings that targeted the Iraqi police and army. The attack in Baqouba, capital of Diyala province, came ahead of a planned Iraqi military offensive to halt attempts by militants to regroup in the volatile area northeast of Baghdad. Diyala is critical to Baghdads security because of its strategic importance as an entrance to the capital and a threat to supply routes

going north. The ethnically mixed area also borders Iran, which the United States has accused of helping militants to stage attacks on American troops. U.S. military officials said Tuesdays attack did not reflect any increase in militant strength in the area. I dont think this changes the security situation. Its just an isolated incident. This is the way alQaida grabs attention, said Maj. Jay Gentile, with the 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment. The Saad camp lies in an area with a large Shiite population on the eastern outskirts of Baqouba. Sunni militants have often targeted Shiites with suicide bombings. The bombing occurred in a field outside the entrance to the joint U.S.-Iraqi base, where recruits were signing up. Witnesses said an initial explosion at about 8 a.m. drew a crowd that tried to evacuate victims. A second bomber then detonated his explosive vest among the rescuers. I lifted one of the wounded, and while I was carrying him away from the site, another explosion took place. I got hurt and the injured man suffered more injuries, said a man who did not want to be named because of safety concerns.

For Israel, prisoner swap evokes raw memories

By Aron Heller

NAHARIYA, Israel Moshe Sasson felt the gun pressed against his head, a Lebanese assailant poised to shoot, when the lights in the hall of his apartment building suddenly went out, allowing him to escape and take cover under a car. The gunman, Samir Kantar, went

on to kill three other people in one of the most notorious attacks in Israeli history. Three decades later, he is about to be freed in exchange for two Israeli soldiers whose capture set off a monthlong Mideast war. The Israelis are presumed dead. But Kantar, whose deadly 1979 rampage traumatizes Sasson to this day, is expected to receive a heros welcome when he returns to Lebanon. I remember his face, the dark

black eyes and murderous gaze, Sasson recalled Tuesday, hands trembling and eyes tearing. He was like the angel of death. The swap is set to take place Wednesday morning after the Israeli Cabinets overwhelming approval of the deal a day earlier. In addition to handing over Kantar, Israel also has agreed to release four other Lebanese prisoners and hand over the bodies of 199 Lebanese and Palestinian ght-

ers killed in clashes over the years. Israeli President Shimon Peres took the rst formal action by pardoning Kantar late Tuesday, his ofce said in a statement. The deal seals a painful chapter from Israels inconclusive war against Hezbollah two years ago. It also marks a major boost for Hezbollah at a time when the militant group is moving decisively to regain its footing following the

blows it took in the 2006 war. Hezbollahs commander in south Lebanon, Sheik Nabil Kaouk, called the swap an ofcial admission of defeat for Israel. Red, white and green Lebanese flags, yellow Hezbollah ags and welcome banners are hanging in south Lebanese villages through which the cofns carrying the returned bodies will be driven in a convoy from the border toward Beirut.

AL outlasts NL in 15 innings
By Ronald Blum

NEW YORK Baseballs AllStars came to say goodbye to Yankee Stadium and what a long, long goodbye it was. In a game that started Tuesday night and faded well into Wednesday, Justin Morneau slid home just in time on Michael

Youngs sacrice y in the 15th inning, giving the American League a 4-3 victory that extended its unbeaten streak to 12. Young ended a 4-hour, 40-minute marathon at 1:37 a.m., with the grand old ballpark half-empty. It was a good thing, too neither team had any pitchers left in the bullpen, but this one was not going to end in another tie.

The NL was given a pregame pep talk by Hall of Famer Ernie Banks, whose motto is: Lets play two! And they nearly did, matching the longest All-Star game ever. Morneau started the winning rally with a leadoff single against loser Brad Lidge, and Ian Kinsler hit a low liner to left that Ryan Ludwick caught with a dive. After Dioner

Navarro singled, J.D. Drew walked to load the bases. Young lofted a y to right and Cory Harts throw home took two bounces and was slightly to the rstbase side of the plate. Catcher Brian McCann gloved the ball and tried a sweep tag, but Young sneaked his right foot in, barely ahead of the tag. Plate umpire Derryl Cousins made the

safe call, and the AL players left in the dugout rushed out to celebrate. The AL improved to 6-0 since the All-Star game began determining homeeld advantage in the World Series. And it even ended an old hex it had been 0-9-1 in extra innings against its older rival.

RC National moves into finals

By Emanuel Lee

Even in victory, Redwood City National Little League Juniors All-Star coach Mark Satterlee challenged his players to play and act like champions on the eld. National defeated Niles-Centerville of Fremont 10-7 in the Section 3 tournament Tuesday at Sequoia High to earn a berth in todays championship round against Tracy, which is the only undefeated team left in the tournament. National, which lost to Tracy 120 earlier in the tournament, must beat Tracy twice to win the championship. It will be a tall order, and Satterlee is hoping his kids rise to the challenge. (In the loss to Tracy) our guys got down and never got back up, he said. We hadnt lost yet (in All-Star play) and they probably got full of themselves. I was a little disappointed when they got on top of us and we didnt battle back. Hopefully well respond better this time, or its going to be a long day. National certainly responded against NilesCenterville, which led 4-2 after two innings. But National took the lead for good with a sixrun fourth. National batters didnt so much have to lift the bats off their shoulders, as they scored three times on bases-loaded walks. They scored another run on a NilesCenterville error, and Brian Clifford accounted for the rest of the runs in the inning with a double that bounced all the way to the makeshift fence in left-center eld. National added single runs in the fth and seventh innings to take a 10-5 lead entering the bottom of the seventh. Niles-Centerville, down to its last strike on two separate occasions, scored twice and had runners at rst and second before National reliever Nick Gasparini recorded the nal out to seal the outcome. National was able to win despite committing four errors that led to four NilesCenterville runs.

rett Favre went on national television to try and explain something he couldnt quite explain. Hes got plenty of company, because when it comes to retirement there arent many athletes who can gure out when its really over. Sandy Koufax knew because his arm told him so. Jim Brown and Barry Sanders got out while still in their prime, too, for reasons that went beyond football. But for every Koufax, Brown or Sanders theres a dozen Favres trying to hold on even as their skills fade and the inevitable aging process takes over. The great Johnny Unitas wasnt immune when he tried to stretch his career in San Diego, and Michael Jordan couldnt even make the playoffs when he ended his second retirement to play two nal seasons with the Washington Wizards. Muhammad Ali couldnt escape punches that sadly may have cost him more than his reputation, and Joe Namath couldnt escape defenders as he tried to play on creaky knees for the Los Angeles Rams. And who can forget a 42-year-old Willie Mays stumbling and bumbling around in the outeld in the 1973 World Series for the New York Mets. They play because they still think they can play. They play because the money is good.

Former Hillsdale standout new San Mateo coach

By Nathan Mollat

Nancy Dinges believed she would be teaching math and coaching basketball at the middle school level for a few years before she got an opportunity to coach at the high school level. The future is now for Dinges. The former Hillsdale High standout was named Tuesday as San Mateo Highs new varsity girls basketball, taking over for Steven Kryger who left the school to take a position at Menlo-Atherton to be closer to his family in Menlo Park. It just kind of fell in my lap,

Dinges said. I thought Id be at the middle school level for ve, six years. Dinges, 26, graduated Hillsdale in 2000, hitting 315 3-pointers during her high school career and garnering San Mateo County Player of the Year honors her senior season. She earned a scholarship to University of Pacic and nished second alltime in the Big West Conference in 3-pointers made. After graduating from Pacic in 2004, she took a year off to travel before earning her teaching credential at San Francisco State University. She was a student teacher at Westmoor High in 200506 and served as an assistant coach

to the girls frosh-soph team which went undefeated. She moved to Paso Robles to teach and coach for the 2006-07 school year before going to Borel Middle school this past year. I didnt expect any of this happen this year, Dinges said. I told everybody that if an opportunity (to coach at the high school level) presented itself, I was taking it. San Mateo athletic director Jeff Scheller said Dinges was his radar and when Kryger announced he was leaving, he put a full-court press on Dinges. It was more a recruitment by us, more than she was looking (for a

high school job), Scheller said. We did a good sales job on her. When Steves thing came, she was out rst choice. Said Dinges: Its an honor. To me, its an honor to get the phone call to say this position is open. San Mateo is coming off a 19-11 season, its best season in at least seven years. The Bearcats also swept the season series from rival Burlingame the first time theyve beaten Burlingame since anyone can remember. Dinges said she prefers to play a run-and-gun style of play but added the players she has will dictate what brand of basketball she will ulti-

mately use. Regardless of how she runs the team, she wants to be at San Mateo for as long as the school will have her. She does not have aspirations to coach anywhere but the high school level. Teaching is my passion, as well as coaching. I think they go hand in hand, Dinges said. I want to get to a place where I can build a program. A place where girls want to come. Said Scheller: Were lucky to have her.

Anthony Kim:The man to tame Tiger?

By Paul Newberry

SOUTHPORT, England Anthony Kim stopped off on his way to the clubhouse, whipped out his pen to sign a few autographs, then looked back impatiently at his caddie, still loitering on the ninth green. Lets go, E! he barked toward Eric Larsen. You know how cranky I get when Im hungry. Kim was just kidding around, but it wouldnt be out of line to say those words carried meaning. This guy isnt waiting around for anyone. There are places to be, golf tournaments to win. Maybe even a major. In his second year on the PGA Tour, Kim has won on two of the most challenging courses and established himself as the latest would-be contender to Tiger Woods throne. With the king on hiatus Woods is sitting out the rest of the year to recover from knee surgery the expectations on this cocky 23-yearold from Los Angeles have only intensied heading into the British Open. Hes got a lot of game, Jim Furyk said. I just dont see a lot of weaknesses. I havent played a lot with him, but when I have, I havent seen him do anything poorly. Kim picked up his rst tour victory in May at the Wachovia Championship, running away with a ve-stroke victory at Quail Hollow. He followed up with a two-stroke win at the AT&T Classic over the Fourth of July weekend at Congressional, an especially poignant triumph since Woods is the tournament host. Could Kim be the one who has

both the talent and, even more important, the swagger to go swingfor-swing with the perhaps the greatest player ever? Before we get ahead of ourselves, remember that plenty of others have tried and failed to provide Woods with the only thing lacking in his brilliant career: a true challenger. Everyone from Sergio Garcia to Adam Scott has been promoted as a potential rival to Woods, but all have been found to be woefully lacking based on that very demanding standard. David Duval had a run at No. 1, but his career fell apart just when he seemed ready to serve as the Tom Watson to Woods Jack Nicklaus. Phil Mickelson has three major titles and might be the only current player to approach Woods shotmaking ability, but even Lefty will concede that hes got no chance of being anything more than a second banana. Which brings us to Kim. He doesnt shy away from the comparison. You arent going to see too many people do what hes done, Kim said of Woods. I just feel lucky to be mentioned in the same breath. I know everyone is kind of looking for someone to challenge him. Its going to be tough, but Im just going to keep working hard and see where that gets me. When asked if he has the sort of game that could measure up to a player with 14 major championships, Kim replied, Id love to think so. At the end of the day, I dont know who has enough talent to overtake him. But I know if I give it everything Ive got, Ill have a pretty good chance to contend. Kims condence is most tellingly revealed in his body language.


Anthony Kim,a 23 year old in his second year on the PGA Tour,has already won twice this season.
During a practice round that began late Monday afternoon and stretched into the evening, he didnt just walk the course he strutted, his shoulders bobbing up and down with a deliberate, distinct cadence. After practicing some testy shots from a deep pot bunker, Kim could have walked out of the sand on the shallow back side, like everyone else. Instead, he leaped onto the green over a wall of imbedded sod, as if to show nothing could hold him back. He stood at the next tee bouncing a golf ball off the face of his driver with monotonous precision while carrying on a conversation with his practice partner, Mark OMeara. I really like the guy, Furyk said. Hes got a real condent feel about him. Even as a rookie, just the way he handled himself, walking around the locker room. He almost appears cocky, but I dont see that side of him when he talks to you. Hes just very condent. He has a lot of belief in his ability. With good reason, according to OMeara, whos taken Kim under his wing and seems determined to nurture him along just as he once did with another dazzling young phenom Tiger Woods. This kid here is the best young player Ive ever seen come along, besides Tiger Woods, OMeara said. He has the most skill, the most talent. He seems like hes got an attitude, but hes not afraid. During his days as a tour regular, the 51-year-old OMeara used to get up early for practice rounds with Woods. Now, playing under a slowly darkening sky, the 1998 British Open champion asked Kim if he wanted go out again Tuesday at 6:30 a.m. You get up that early? OMeara asked. Yeah, I get up early, Kim replied. Tiger who? Even last year, when hardly anyone knew his name, Kim swaggered around like he was the one with Woods resume. When the normally conservative Furyk wandered out to

the driving range wearing a pink shirt, the youngster let him have it. Look at you, stepping it up with the pink shirt, Furyk remembers him saying. Now, it might have been OK for someone such as Woods or Mickelson to get in a few goodnatured jabs at a player of Furyks stature. But a rookie? Beyond his razzing skills something Woods is also pretty good at Kim has shown a killer instinct on the course. You dont see a lot of young guys like that get in contention on a tough course like Wachovia and then just beat the snot out of everyone, Furyk said. He gets up two, pretty soon its three, pretty soon its four. You have to have a lot of belief in yourself to do that. Kim certainly has his eyes on the bigger prizes. While playing the front nine at Royal Birkdale, he shouted at Boo Weekley, another of his practice partners, Hey, Boo, you ever played Valhalla? That, of course, is the site of this years Ryder Cup. Kim also spent a good deal of time chatting with OMeara and others walking with them about nancial planning, tossing around words such as rollover and deferred payments to handle his rapidly growing fortune. But there was plenty of time for fun, as well. Kim joked about everything from those infamous British bathrooms I have to duck to get in the shower to his voracious appetite. He once took on his best friend in a pizza-eating contest. Twenty-two slices later, Kim was the winner. Yep, this guy is good.

ond as the 14th overall pick. All rookie contracts for first-round picks are guaranteed the first two years, with options for the next two. Randolph, who turned 19 on Tuesday, averaged 15.6 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.26 blocked shots per game in his one college season at LSU.

Randolph is currently playing in the summer league for the Warriors, where he scored 30 points in his debut last week.

Asomugha, Raiders do not reach long-term deal

ALAMEDA The Oakland Raiders and star cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha failed to agree on a long-term contract before Tuesdays deadline for franchised players. The Raiders placed the exclusive franchise

tag on Asomugha in February, which guaranteed Asomugha more than $9 million in 2008 and did not allow him to negotiate with any other team. Asomugha has not signed the tender and has been unable to practice with the team during offseason workouts. The two sides had up until Tuesday to sign a long-term contract. With no deal in place, Asomugha will be guaranteed $9.765 million for this season as soon as he signs.

After 10 stages,the Tour de France rested

By Jamey Keaten

PAU, France Frank Schleck of Luxembourg wants ideas. The Tour de France resumes Wednesday and hes trying to gure out how to erase his one-second decit to race leader Cadel Evans of Australia. After 10 stages and more than 46 hours of racing, competitors took a rest day Tuesday after two punishing days in the Pyrenees in which Evans captured the yellow jersey for the rst time in his career. Several rivals wilted up the Tourmalet and Hautacam passes, narrowing the eld of likely competitors for cyclings ultimate prize when the three-week race ends in Paris on July 27. The nal shakeout is expected to come in three agonizing stages in the Alps each featuring at least one climb that dees classication for difculty and a time trial a day before the Champs-Elysees nish. Schleck doesnt expect to overtake Evans during Wednesdays 11th stage, a 104-mile trek from Lannemezan to Foix. I aint gonna catch Cadel, Schleck said beside a swimming pool at the hotel of his Team CSC outside Pau. I guess its going to be a breakaway day and the favorites are going to watch each other. But the prospect of trying to swipe the jersey did cross his mind. If you have any other options, Ill take it, he said. Before the Tour started July 5,

Evans gave himself a pretty good chance to win. He took a big step Saturday by gaining the yellow jersey and widening his lead over Alejandro Valverde of Spain, Damiano Cunego of Italy and Schlecks younger brother, Andy. All were considered title threats before the race. Frank Schleck beat Evans up the climb to the Hautacam ski station Saturday, and watched on television to see if he or Evans would take the overall lead from Team Columbia rider Kim Kirchen, also of Luxembourg. After two or three minutes they showed the classication, and I saw my name was there, second, Schleck recalled. And it said (a gap of) onesecond. I said, Damn it. I had some tears in my eyes. Having the jersey is nice. He was also disappointed his brother couldnt keep pace. We are like twins, and he gave me all of his power and he didnt have any left, Schleck said. We are just human beings, you know. I have seen bad days, and I will see some more bad days coming in the next years. But thats life. Thats bike riding. Schlecks Team CSC is strong and has many assets with which to challenge Evans. The last day in the Alps (Stage 17) nishes at the legendary Alpe dHuez, where Schleck won a stage in 2006. Put it this way, were not going to let Frank Schleck go in an early breakaway on the stage to the Alpe dHuez the way he did that year, Evans said. In addition, Evans must keep an

eye on another CSC rider, Carlos Sastre of Spain. Like Schleck, Sastre is a strong climber. He is sixth overall, 1:28 behind the Australian. Theyre really going to be a force to be reckoned with, but theyre not the only ones, Evans said, referring to the CSC contenders. I hope I can resist. Evans is no stranger to close nishes. He was second in last years Tour, 23 seconds behind Spanish winner Alberto Contador. Levi Leipheimer was third, 31 seconds back, in the races closest nish. Of course, Cadel is scared well, scared dont get me wrong, Schleck said. But, of course, he must think about it, and how he is going to handle this. Cadel was never an aggressive rider, Schleck added. If hes going to win the Tour, its going to be because hes a good time trialer. But thats good enough, hes a big champion. Among CSC riders, he said its down to him and Sastre in the title chase. Were not good time trialers enough to just let everything go, he said. We have to ride aggressive, thats obvious.

Final table set at World Series of Poker

By Oskar Garcia

LAS VEGAS The World Series of Poker has been dealt its nal nine. As for a winner, come back in 117 days. These players arent household names yet save one or two among truly hardcore card fans but with four months of publicity and time to mull their game and study their opponents, nobody will sit down at the final table in November an unknown. The beauty of it is I survived, said Kelly Kim, a 31-year-old professional poker player from Whittier, Calif., who squeezed into the nal nine holding about 2.6 million chips but just 1.9 percent of the chips in play and more than 23 million behind the leader. I get to play another day anything could happen. Its truly amazing. Tournament officials doled out ninth place money $900,670 Tuesday to each of the nalists, and were expected to meet with the new faces of no-limit Texas Hold em to talk about the months ahead. They will play Nov. 9-10 for a top

prize of $9.12 million in a 1,500seat theater at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino where magicians Penn & Teller normally perform. No doubt, the cash alone could be life altering but the potential for each player given their newfound celebrity is uncharted territory for the series. Several players spoke to agents and representatives from poker Web sites throughout the series, parlaying success on the felt into sponsorship deals. Its also unclear how playing the nal table four months from now will affect the game itself, though the seesaw way the players nal 11hour, 38-minute session ended up left none of the nalists with a dominant chip lead. The leader with about 26.2 million chips, 53-year-old Dennis Phillips of the St. Louis suburb of Cottage Hills, Ill., held about a 1.9 million chip lead over Ivan Demidov, a 27-year-old semiprofessional player from Moscow. Im having a blast I live for this, said Phillips, a trucking account manager who won entry into the main event by winning a satellite poker tournament at

Harrahs St. Louis. Winners of qualifying satellite tournaments have their $10,000 buy-in to the main event paid for them. Each player, whether they won a satellite tournament or paid their own entry, sat down with 20,000 in chips when the main event began July 3. The rest of the nine in order of their stacks were: Scott Montgomery, a 26-year-old Canadian from Perth, Ontario with nearly 19.7 million chips and Peter Eastgate, 22, of Odense, Denmark with about 18.3 million. The other nalists, who had stacks of about 10 million to 12 million chips, were Ylon Schwartz, 38, of Brooklyn, N.Y.; Darus Suharto, 39, of Toronto; David Chino Rheem, 28, of Los Angeles; and 23-year-old amateur Craig Marquis of Arlington, Texas. Kim trailed the eld as the nine emerged from a eld of 6,844 players to reach the pinnacle of poker, simultaneously tired, relieved and ecstatic when the nal cards fell Tuesday morning. Everybody was scared they werent going to make the nal table, Marquis said.

Dean Hamrick, a 25-year-old poker player from East Lansing, Mich., was eliminated in the last hand Tuesday morning when his ace-jack failed to beat the pocket queens of Marquis. Both players bet the last of their chips before seeing any community cards. Hamrick picked up an inside straight draw on the op, giving him additional possibilities to win the hand, but he failed to pair his ace or make the straight and was eliminated in 10th place. He won $591,869. Its the worst youre ever going to feel to win half a million bucks, Hamrick said. I guess at least its a good story. Earlier, Marquis put his tournament life at risk with an ace-queen and was called by Hamrick holding pocket queens. Marquis was a huge underdog before the community cards were dealt because Hamricks two queens made Marquis queen seem worthless. But Marquis queen also was a heart, which won him the hand when the fourth and fth community cards gave him a ush and 11.2 million in chips. I was hoping he would fold,

obviously, Marquis said. Chips have no monetary value in the no-limit Texas Hold em main event, but are used to indicate where players stand relative to one another in the tournament. One player will have to win all the chips in play to win the title in November. The eventual winner will have never won a world series tournament before because the last two gold bracelet winners, Phi Nguyen and Brandon Cantu, were eliminated early Monday. The last woman in the eld, 24year-old actress Tiffany Michelle, was eliminated in 17th place the best nish for a woman in the main event since 2000, when tournament professional Annie Duke nished 10th. It may not be a World Series of Poker bracelet, but thats really huge and it makes me really happy, said Michelle, who won $334,534. Last years winner, California psychologist Jerry Yang nished out of the money this year. Phil Hellmuth, who won the main event in 1989, nished highest in the tournament among previous winners 45th.

Schnyder breezes into Round 2 at Bank of the West


STANFORD Switzerlands Patty Schnyder had an easy time with former two-time NCAA champion Amber Liu, winning 6-1, 6-1 in her opening-round match at the Bank of the West Classic on Tuesday night. The fth-seeded Schnyder overpowered the less experienced Liu, who was playing in only her third tour event of the season. Coming off a disappointing rstround loss at Wimbledon, Schnyder took advantage of several unforced errors by Liu, while playing almost

awlessly down the stretch. She allowed only two points and won six straight games to capture the second set after falling behind 1-0. Right from the start I was moving great and my serve was on, Schnyder said. Sometimes those matches can get tricky when you let your opponent play and (start making) mistakes, but I stayed focused the whole match. We all know how quickly things can turn. Liu, No. 328 in the WTA rankings, had no answer for Schnyders two-handed backhand, which produced several winners from the baseline. A wild card entrant, Liu was playing on the court where she

honed her touch while winning NCAA singles titles in 2003 and 2004, but repeatedly hurt herself with numerous shots that went wide or into the net. Not even the presence of Michael Chang, a recent Hall of Fame inductee who is reportedly engaged to Liu and was sitting in the stands quietly during the match, could shake Liu out of her slump. Ive been pretty comfortable playing here, Liu said, declining to talk about her relationship with Chang. Unfortunately, Im just a little out of match practice. I felt there were glimpses of how I could play ... but I think momentum-wise

she had it. Schnyder, who will play Russias Alisa Kleybanova in the second round, said Liu will get better the more experience she gets. College tennis is still a big difference from the pros, Schnyder said. Shes going to have fun. Maybe she wanted to do better but I was just there, not letting her play better. Four of the ve qualiers entered in the tournament won on Tuesday. Canadian Alexsandra Wozniak upset eighth-seeded Francesca Schiavone of Italy, 2-6, 6-3, 6-1; Michelle Larcher De Brito of

Portugal beat Argentinas Gisela Dulko 7-5, 7-6 (1); Australias Samantha Stosur defeated Anastasia Rodionova of Russia, 6-3, 6-1; and Englands Anne Keothavong beat Indias Sania Mirza 7-6 (4), 6-1. Larcher De Brito, 15, is the youngest player in the tournament and will play top seed Serena Williams on Wednesday. It is Williams rst match since losing to her sister Venus in the Wimbledon nals. The only qualier to lose was Hungarys Melinda Czink, who was beat by Israels Shahar Peer 7-5, 60.

SANTA CLARA Jovan Kirovski scored a goal and added two assists to lead the San Jose Earthquakes to their rst win in more than a month, a 4-0 exhibition decision over Honduras Olympic team Tuesday night. The expansion Earthquakes hadnt won since June 7, and this victory wont count in the MLS standings, where San Jose is last in the Western Conference. Ned Grabavoy, Shea Salinas and Kei Kamara added goals for the Earthquakes, who have struggled to score in MLS play this season but dominated the Honduran team, which is made up primarily of under-23 players. Grabavoy put the Earthquakes ahead 1-0 in the 15th minute with a skimming, 25-yard attempt to the far post that left Honduran goalkeeper Kevin Hernandez at-footed. Honduras best rst-half scoring chance came in the 27th minute when Jefferson Bernardezs header off a long cross sailed just wide. Instead, Salinas doubled San Joses lead a minute later when he accepted a pass from Kirovski, turned and red past a diving Hernandez from 22 yards out. Kirovski knocked home a precise, curling header off of Matt Hatzkes corner kick in the 55th minute. Kirovski set up San Joses nal goal 13 minutes later by collecting Kamaras deected shot and feeding it back to him for an easy header. The output was a welcome sight for San Jose, which has scored a league-worst 11 goals in 16 MLS matches. On Monday, the Earthquakes signed veteran English forward Darren Huckerby and traded for Kansas City Wizards forward Scott Sealy to bolster their attack. The loss was the second tuneup match in four days for Honduras, which earned the second Olympic berth in its history by winning the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament in March.

The pinstriped crowd got to boo Bostons Jonathan Papelbon and the Mets Billy Wagner. The fans showed their love for Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter. Matt Holliday and Drew hit home runs. Houston shortstop Miguel Tejada made a great, falling throw on a slow grounder to deny the AL a win in the 10th after a pair of uggly errors by Dan Uggla, who made a record three botches in all. The AL stranded the potential winning run at third base in the 10th, 11th and 12th innings. Uggla twice stranded what would have been the go-ahead run on third.

The team found itself in the uncomfortable position of having to nally say no to a sure Hall of Fame player, something the Mets nearly George faced in 1973 before intermediaries nally persuaded Foreman Mays to retire. I cant even mention the word retire to him, Mets chairman Donald Grant said at the time. Money is almost always a factor in players wanting to stay, and Favre had about $25 million remaining on his contract with the Packers. But it goes beyond that, Foreman said, beginning with the admission that every athlete has to eventually make that his or her body is not what it was in younger years. When you retire youre basically saying to yourself that my body is no good anymore, he said. Thats something no one will admit to. To look in the mirror and say you cant do it anymore is so hard. Theres more, of course, including the fear of losing the sense of identity that has been with most athletes since they were playing Little allowing six hits and one earned run in 5 2/3 innings. He also had three RBIs, and reached base in four of his ve plate appearances. Shortstop Garrett Coe had two doubles and Clifford nished with three RBIs. Anthony battled and battled and he pitched well, Satterlee said. Who knows where we would be without him. He, along with Brian, have been our top overall players all season.

Young got the winning hit off Trevor Hoffman in the 2006 All-Star game at Pittsburgh, and it gave the win to Tampa Bays Scott Kazmir, the 12th AL pitcher. Drew was picked as the MVP, with his tworun homer in the seventh made it 2-all. Being from Boston, he was booed when presented with his trophy. One of those undescribable events, Drew said. To be voted in by the players and to be in this position is really an honor. The only other AL player with an All-Star ending RBI was Red Sox great Ted Williams, who hit a three-run, ninth-inning homer in 1941. This game tied the NLs 2-1, 15-inning victory in 1967 at Anaheim. It made the AL 100-1 since its 1996 loss in Philadelphia and narrowed its overall decit to 40-37-2. And this one had nearly everything a fan could ask for a Yankees fan, that is.

League baseball or youth football. Suddenly youre without the game that has dened you, and without the camaraderie of teammates that have always been around. And then there are the perks of being a star player, from the adoring fans to, yes, even the media. You dont understand how it is when youve got a guy with pen and paper turning the pages of his notebook over and over again, lling them with what you have to say. And behind him theres another one in line and then an other one, Foreman said. And then you wake up the next morning and not even your kids want to know what you have to say. Indeed, Favres attempted unretirement lled a lot of notebooks and ate up a lot of air time. Hes suddenly hot again, though not for anything he did on the eld, and on center stage for yet another drama about whether hell have to be dragged kicking and screaming into retirement. There are signs, though, that this drama may be getting a bit old around the edges, too. An unscientic newspaper poll found less than half the fans in Green Bay want Favre back as their starting quarterback, and a rally in his support in Milwaukee on Monday drew only about 30 people. Foreman, who became the oldest heavySatterlee said its going to be a daunting challenge just to get to a winner-take-all game. National will be playing its fourth game today, while Tracy will be playing its third. Our pitching is getting thin, but thats to be expected in a tournament like this, Satterlee said. Tracy is a formidable team and we better be prepared to play our best game. Yes, Im weight champion when he knocked out Michael Moore at age 45 in 1994, had the same kind of trouble retiring for the second time after losing to Shannon Briggs in 1997. He hatched plans to ght Larry Holmes in a battle of old heavyweights in a ght that never happened, and was in the ring training for another comeback four years ago before his wife put her foot down. Foreman said he cried on a few occasions after retiring because he missed the big stage so much. It took time, he said, to nally accept the fact that that part of his life was over. Hes made himself rich beyond belief selling grills and is now involved with a restaurant franchise. Hes happy at home watching his children play sports, and hes proud of the tomatoes he carefully cares for in his garden outside Houston. Still, theres something missing that he can never replace. Ive been successful with a lot of business things, but if I told you that took the place of boxing Id be lying, he said. The thrill of a crowd roaring for you after just winning a boxing match, nothing touches that. It has to be the same for a guy dancing in the end zone or throwing touchdown passes. You cant touch that with a billion-dollar paycheck. proud of my team, but if we have to spend time on preschool-type behavioral issues, the less cycles were spending on the eld trying to win baseball games. Weve had some heartwrenching victories, some of the best since Ive been involved as a coach, and now were hoping for some more.

A lot of them play because they just dont know how to quit. The easiest thing is to become an athlete, former heavyweight champion George Foreman said. But how do you get out? The sad thing about it is so few have been successful in doing that. Foreman ended up being one of those, though it helped that he had a second career as a grill pitchman that made him more than he ever made in the ring. But even he retired twice and was in the gym training for yet another comeback at age 55 before his wife squashed the idea. Favre, of course, famously threatened retirement for a few years before tearfully announcing in March that he was done after 16 seasons with the Green Bay Packers. Like many before him he almost immediately had second thoughts and said Monday in a televised interview that the Packers helped push him out the door. I am guilty of retiring early and there is a reason for that, Favre said. The Packers deny that, saying they urged

Food detectives sniff out the fraud

By Frances dEmilio

REGGIO-EMILIA, Italy Inspector Giorgio Capovani laid out his array of cheese impostors. A wedge of Parmesansan made in Lithuania, a container of Parmazano Fiorentino produced in Britain and labeled dairy free, a chunk of German Parmezano sold in Mexico. The motley assortment of longexpired cheese products he keeps in a refrigerator is proof that rip-offs know no borders nor limits to the imagination. And its not just cheese. Hams too can be suspect. And basil. And vinegar. Capovani, whose rotund belly could rival a huge wheel of the cheese ofcially titled ParmigianoReggiano, belongs to a growing breed of food detectives sought out by producers of Italian foods that have earned prestigious European Union protection. A museum of a hundred fakes, is the way Capovani proudly describes his collection of counterfeit cheeses. We have a network of salesman informants who keep a sharp eye on the competition, he said. In the Wild West of gastronomical rip-offs, men like Capovani are a kind of sheriff. They are sworn judicial officers who can demand admission to premises, examine documentation and conscate prod-

ucts at wholesalers warehouses or supermarket aisles. We can even carry firearms, although we dont, said another food detective, Domenico DAniello. European Union protection, indicated by the alphabet-soup designations DOP and IGP, has been granted to some of Italys best-known products, including Bufala Mozzarella, Parma prosciutto, balsamic vinegar from Modena, San Marzano tomatoes, and Gorgonzola cheese. Across Europe, dozens of food products from Greek feta cheese to Britains Jersey Royal potatoes enjoy EU trademark protection. But in Italy producers have proved particularly fastidious about hunting down counterfeiters. After all, gourmet foods are one of Italys biggest industries. Paolo Facioni, a spokesman for the Italian farm lobby Coldiretti, said DOP and IGP products account for some $14 billion in annual sales but the gure would be much higher if consumers always bought the real thing. DOP applies to products whose qualities depend essentially on the territory, including climate, where they are produced. Production must also follow stern rules. IGP is slightly less rigid. It requires that at least one phase of production take place in a particular geographic area. Late last year, authorities seized some 1,000 hams in warehouses and supermarkets throughout Italy. The haul may have just been the tip of the iceberg: Investigators say theres

no way of telling just how many hams had already vanished into stomachs in the guise of the coveted Parma or San Daniele varieties in the massive DOP scam. Investigators suspect at least some of the ham was sent from abroad to deboning plants, where they were falsely branded as DOP. Accused in the case are six Italians, including two from the northern town of Ferrara, where police say blacksmiths forged machines to brand hams with the DOP prosciutto trademark of a ve-pointed crown. Criminal complaints have been lodged, but the suspects remain free; they could face nes or even jail time if convicted, police said. Food detective DAniello, a specialist in Parma prosciutto, worked closely with the food fraud unit of the paramilitary Carabinieri police, and his sleuthing took him on a trail of fake hams from Rovigo in northern Italy to Palma di Montechiaro, a tiny town in Sicily. In a delicatessen on Parmas main street, DAniello showed a reporter how the perpetrators near-perfect prosciutto caper was foiled. He ran a nger over the rind of one of dozens of hams hanging in the shop and stopped at the tiniest of imperfections in the five-pointed crown. The consortium deliberately makes an almost imperceptible aw in the crown every two years to

power of three districts joining together, the power to go green and the power of helping others. Students are encouraged to help in the community. Helping earns students an entry into a rafe for prizes. To be entered, students have been helping with local organizations such as Project Primrose or the Samaritan House, said Shader. Others are helping older people in the community. On campus, proceeds from the snack bar go to support Water for Life a program started 2007 by Portola Valley students selling bottled water to buy water play pumps. Snack proceeds were at $340 on Monday. The only real power we have in this world is helping other people, said Shader. And these are the kids to do it. During the four weeks, students are able to explore education in many project-based forms. A leadership class, for example, planned activities and theme days for the week on Monday. Part of the students jobs is when reserving the property for a school, said Assistant City Manager Kristi Chapelle. The facility would be built in two phases the rst would be completed by July 2009 at the cost of more than $5 million and the second would be completed by July 2011 at the cost of $7.7 million. The costs are preliminary estimates, according to the business plan. A permanent building would likely cost a lot more. There are no details about the permanent building included in the business plan. The business plan proposes nancing construction through loans at a 7 percent interest In a separate case, DAniello once tracked suspect hams to Barcelona, Spain, where the jamon trail went cold. The Spanish police told us, You wont ever nd this guy. They had been looking for the suspect for years he had some 20 aliases, the detective recalled. The Parma prosciutto consortium says it spends about $750,000 a year in legal fees to protect its product. Its not so much for the monetary damage. Its a damage to our reputation, our image, said Federico Desimoni, a legal adviser to the consortium. Even 10 (fraudulent) prosciuttos can hurt. Imagine 1,000. You can lose consumers. After giving some information, support for the measure was at 72 percent. Superintendent Emerita Orta-Camilleri has remained neutral on the topic since the beginning. Even now, she had no comment on the discussion since it was simply an opinion poll. The 18-minute survey was conducted by phone between June 10 through June 16. The 450 surveyed consisted of 240 from Belmont, 170 from Redwood Shores and 40 from San encouraging other students to become involved in games. To do this, the leadership students must often practice the activities. Navy was a game similar to Simon Says. Captain Malia a 10-year-old from Burlingame called on direction like all hands on deck. Children followed the directions or had to leave the ship until only two were standing. Chess class is offered, but many students were unable to make it into the course. The class doors remain open during the schools 10-minute recess to accommodate the other interested students. Chess boards sat across desks while others watched during the ongoing tournament. In Space Trek students learned more about science through Venus topography. Using shoe boxes, students created a terrain within the box. Then the line has holes made like a grid. Students place measuring sticks through the holes and must make notes of the measurements. The information helps students rate. The city is not clear whether the foundation or Magnolia has the credit to obtain such loans. The schedule for loan repayment was not included in the plan. However, the business plan relies on state construction grants. The Foster City Education Foundation wrote a letter in support of Magnolia, in which they indicated a state bond initiate for charter school construction would make it on the November 2008 ballot. There was no such initiative as of the June 28 deadline to qualify for the state ballot. The charter school would lease the property from the city for $15,000 a month. It is Parma prosciutto makers swear their ham is sweeter and stress it contains no chemical additives, just a little salt. The prosciutto is aged in cavernous rooms where air quality and sunlight are carefully controlled. Inspectors like DAniello are trained to spotcheck hams air-drying in warehouses with ceilings so high they seem like cathedrals. The hams are given ve pokes with a needle made from a horses shin bone which absorbs and quickly releases aromas. The needle is then sniffed to check for Parma prosciuttos characteristic smell. Parmigiano-Reggiano cheesemaking has its Carlos and San Mateo. Belmont-Redwood Shores voters passed Measure G, a $96 a year parcel tax for 10 years, in 2004. The district is not alone in its parcel tax talks. The San Carlos Elementary School District is researching a potential second parcel tax. Voters in Millbrae narrowly turned down a parcel tax in June for the Millbrae Elementary School District. Leaders in the


understand the make of the land without actually seeing it. Marble mazes, spaghetti buildings and reports on inventors made up a portion of the curriculum for Gizmos and Gadgets. Students created their own businesses selling items like necklaces, origami dinosaurs and key chains in Creative Designs and Marketing. The results of the class were sold during two different sale sessions. Lastly, students had the opportunity to learn American Sign Language. Their work will be showcased this Friday, the end of the fourweek session, sharing with other students and parents the ABCs and 1-2-3s in this new language.

Meanwhile, the San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District is facing increasing enrollment for younger students. It is considering ways to add temporary classrooms on school sites in Foster City. The charter high school plan proposed temporary buildings on the property until enough money is raised for the building. The facility proposal is not what the city had in mind

unclear if that is considered market-rate, but the council already agreed to consider a less than market rate rent for a community asset, according to the report. The council will discuss the business plan and whether to extend its reservation of the land for a charter school. If it does not extend the reservation the land could be developed with the nearby 11-acres of city-owned land. That building proposal from senior housing, assisted living and retail is currently undergoing city review.

Make breakfast do double duty as lunch

By Patrick Decker

If youre organized enough to pack the kids lunches the night before, good for you. For the rest of us, there are simple shortcuts that can help streamline your morning routine. One of the easiest, yet perhaps least obvious, is to make breakfast do double duty. As in, make extra breakfast foods, then turn the excess into lunch. For example, if scones or English mufns are on your breakfast menu, toast up a few extra and use them to make sandwiches for lunch, perhaps with a bit of the ham and cheese that went into the breakfast omelet. Pancakes can be used the same way, as in this recipe for pancake panini with leftover or deli chicken and cheese. Or if your breakfast involves sausage, fry a few more and use them in this recipe for sausage pita pockets.

Great BBQ in your dorm room sans fire

By Jim Romanoff

Pulled chicken
Here are some easy uses for the pulled meat of a rotisserie chicken:
Use to top a salad of pre-washed mixed greens, cherry tomatoes and bagged shredded carrots. Create quick burritos by mixing shredded chicken with salsa and wrapping it in our tortillas along with some pre-washed and chopped lettuce plus some canned refried beans. Make a curried chicken salad by mixing the meat with reduced-fat mayonnaise, curry powder,halved grapes and chopped walnuts. One drawback to rotisserie chickens is that they often are high in sodium. If you are watching your salt intake you might consider using a home-roasted chicken that you have prepared ahead of time.

When life demands a no-cook meal, it doesnt have to come from a takeout box. Or at the expense of good nutrition. For example, the shredded meat of a storebought rotisserie chicken can be used to create a number of quick, wholesome meals. The key to keeping it healthy is to always remove the skin, which contains large amounts of fat. Buy rotisserie chickens from a store that sells a lot of them and marks them with the time they were prepared. This way you will be sure to get a chicken that hasnt been sitting under warming lights for a long time, which can dry it out. This simple recipe for spicy barbecue pulled chicken sandwiches takes only a few minutes in a microwave, making it perfect for students who are cooking with limited kitchen access. Shredded rotisserie chicken is mixed with your favorite store-bought barbecue sauce, some cider vinegar for extra zest and a few dashes of hot sauce. The mixture is heated, then served on toasted buns or wrapped in warmed tortillas. When purchasing a bottled barbecue sauce read the label carefully and select a brand with no high-fructose corn syrup and less than 300 milligrams of sodium per serving. As a side dish, try this easy-to-make creamy blue cheese coleslaw. Its prepared using your favorite low-fat blue cheese bottled dressing combined with a pre-shredded coleslaw mix. You also can use shredded broccoli slaw mix.

Michael J.Fox joinsRescue Mecrew


BEVERLY HILLS Michael J. Fox will return to series TV with a fourepisode guest role on FXs Rescue Me. FX also announced on Tuesday that Academy Award-winning actress Marcia Gay Harden (Pollock) will be joining the Glenn Close legal drama Damages as a second-season series regular, while Ted Danson will return to the show for several episodes. On Rescue Me, which stars Denis Leary as troubled firefighter Tommy Gavin, Fox will play a very funny, very original character, said John Landgraf, president and general manager of FX Networks. Foxs character, who uses a wheelchair, is the new boyfriend of Tommys estranged wife Janet (Andrea Roth) and will be introduced in the fth-season premiere in spring 2009. The episodes

air date was not announced. Fox, 47, a friend of Learys, was really excited about the part, Landgraf said. The star of TVs Family Ties and Spin City and the Back to the Future lms was diagnosed with Parkinsons disease in 1991 and revealed his condition publicly in 1998. He quit acting full time in 2000 because of his symptoms, which have included shaking and rocking. He has acted sporadically in smaller roles, including a several-episode guest appearance in 2006 on ABCs Boston Legal, playing a business tycoon with cancer. For that role and others, Fox generally has sought to control his movements, though his illness was evident. The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Michael J. Foxs character will be Parkinsons Research, founded by the introduced in the fth-season premiere actor, has raised millions of dollars, and of Rescue Mein spring 2009. Fox has been a vocal supporter of stem gressive disorder of the central nervous cell research. system that leaves patients increasingly Parkinsons disease is a chronic, pro- unable to control their movements.

had 1.1 million (0.6, 1), TeleFutura 520,000 (0.3, 1) and Azteca 110,000 (0.1, 0). NBCs Nightly News won the evening news ratings race, averaging 7.5 million viewers (5.2 rating, 11 share). ABCs World News had 7.3 million (5.1, 11) and the CBS Evening News 5.6 million (3.9, 8). A ratings point represents 1,128,000 households, or 1 percent of the nations estimated 112.8 million TV homes. The share is the percentage of in-use televisions tuned to a given show. Gibson and others vastly understated the budget for the 2004 blockbuster. Fitzgerald claims the result is that he was underpaid for his work on the lm, which he says began in 2001. His suit also claims that Gibson told him the actor didnt want to make any money off the lm because he considered it a personal gift to his faith. Fitzgeralds amended suit seeks portions of the proceeds from home video, cable and other distribution outlets.

NEW YORK CBS got a paw up on its competition with the debut of Greatest American Dog helping the network to a midsummer ratings victory. The new competition was the sixthmost popular show on prime-time television last week, with 9.5 million viewers, Nielsen Media Research reported Tuesday. There was no measurement of canine interest. With a month to go before the Olympics, summers run of contrived network competition continued to dominate. Eight of TVs 11 most-watched programs were games, topped again by NBCs Americas Got Talent. The CBS premiere of Flashpoint, a police drama bought from Canadian television at a time networks were concerned about a prolonged writers strike, nished No. 15 for the week with 8.1 million viewers. CBS prime-time average of 6.9 million viewers (4.6 rating, 6 share) easily outdistanced its competition. Fox had 5.8 million viewers (3.6, 7), but won among the 18-to-49-year-old demographic. ABC had 5.52 million viewers (3.7, 7), NBC 5.51 million (3.6, 6), the CW 1.5 million (1.0, 2), My Network TV 950,000 (0.6, 1) and ION Television 430,000 (0.3, 1). Among the Spanish language networks, Univision averaged 3.3 million viewers (1.7 rating, 3 share), Telemundo

Writer revises Passion lawsuit against Mel Gibson

LOS ANGELES A screenwriters lawsuit seeking higher payments from Mel Gibson and others for The Passion of the Christ has just completed its rst edit. The suit was originally led in February. A judge ordered attorneys for screenwriter Benedict Fitzgerald to rewrite the complaint last month, saying it lacked specicity and seemed to take a chain letter approach. Fitzgeralds lawyers led their rewrite Monday against Gibson, Icon Productions, Marquis Films and others over payments for the screenplay. The suit seeks at least $10 million, claiming that

Born Today: The lessons of the past will be taking root in the year ahead, governing your mental patterns, attitudes and habits and helping you prepare to conquer the world in new and better ways. When others see your offerings, nice things will happen. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Find productive ways
to utilize your time with projects that hold your interest and attention. If you dont, your chances for becoming restless and making mistakes are better than usual.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Devote as much time as possible to tasks and activities that you have neglected for far too long. The amount of stress eliminated would do you a world of good. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Be happy for an individual who talks about a wonderful new endeavor or enterprise that he or she is getting into. Dont let the green-eyed monster of jealousy destroy your day. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Appreciate all the
good things that surround you and dont measure what youve got in comparison to others. Your attitude about life draws and determines what you get out of life.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- At a social gathering or the

office watering hole, try to keep your conversations to light topics of general interest. Dont say anything mean about someone who isnt present.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your effectiveness as a

promoter or salesperson will be marred if you dont keep your presentation all business. Keep your remarks as brief and succinct as possible.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- When dealing with a

loved one, let your heart rule your head, even if this person wants to do something of which you disapprove -- as long as it isnt dangerous or harmful. Be vigilant from a distance.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Be careful not to dis-


close family matters to people who arent involved, even if it seems innocent to you. What you say might be misunderstood or misconstrued and used in negative ways.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Treat others as

generously as they treat you, and this doesnt necessarily mean only with material items. It has to do more with forgiveness, kindness and making demands on one another.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Giving advice on

anything but that which you are an expert could put you in hot water, regardless if it is business-related or personal. If it doesnt work out, you will be held accountable.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Be wary of making commitments you may not be able to keep. Promises made in haste arent likely to be well thought
Copyright 2008, Newspaper Enterprise Assn.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you need a

loan or the support of others, determine whether you can trust them to be honorable about the terms of repayment. Being in debt with the wrong types could tie you up for a long time.

Around the world

Gitmo video offers glimpse of interrogations
TORONTO Burying his face in his hands, a 16-year-old captured in Afghanistan sobs and calls out Oh Mommy! in a hidden-camera video released Tuesday that provides the rst look at interrogations inside the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay. Lawyers for Toronto-born Omar Khadr released the tapes in hopes of generating sympathy for the young prisoner and to try to persuade the Canadian government to seek custody before he is prosecuted for war crimes at the U.S. special tribunal in Guantanamo later this year. The son of an alleged al-Qaida nancier, Khadr is accused of throwing a grenade that killed a U.S. Special Forces soldier during a 2002 reght in Afghanistan that left another soldier blinded in one eye.

Obama: Iraq distracting other threats

By Glen Johnson

Catholics gather for youth event in Sydney

SYDNEY, Australia More than 100,000 Roman Catholic pilgrims from around the world swarmed Sydney Harbor on Tuesday, waving the flags of their countries and singing as they awaited a Mass opening the World Youth Day festival. The star of the show, Pope Benedict XVI, remained ensconced at a retreat on Sydneys outskirts where he was resting before joining the celebrations Thursday.

WASHINGTON Sen. Barack Obama said Tuesday that overall U.S. interests have been hurt rather than helped by the Bush administrations decision to increase troop strength in Iraq 18 months ago, and vowed to stick to his plan to withdraw combat troops within 16 months of becoming president. Obama said his White House rival, Sen. John McCain, has argued that the gains of the surge mean that I should change my commitment to end the war. But this argument misconstrues what is necessary to succeed in Iraq, and stubbornly ignores the facts of the broader strategic picture that we face. In a speech delivered in advance of an overseas trip, Obama said ghting al-Qaida and the Taliban in


Barack Obama arrives to make a foreign policy speech on Iraq and American national security in Washington.
Afghanistan would be his top priority. Beyond that, he called for securing all nuclear weapons and materials from terrorists and rogue states, achieving energy security and rebuilding international alliances. With his speech, Obama sought to cast the debate over the war in Iraq and in particular the surge

in a wider context. Senator McCain wants to talk of our tactics in Iraq; I want to focus on a new strategy for Iraq and the wider world, he said. This war distracts us from every threat that we face and so many opportunities we could seize. This war diminishes our security, our standing in the world, our military, our economy, and the resources that we need to confront the challenges of the 21st century. By any measure, our single-minded and open-ended focus on Iraq is not a sound strategy for keeping America safe.

McCain calls for Iraq strategies in Afghanistan

By Devlin Barrett

ALBUQUERQUE Republican John McCain said Tuesday he knows how to win wars and that the strategy of increasing troop levels in Iraq should also be applied to Afghanistan. Moments earlier, his

John McCain

Democratic rival, Barack Obama, said in a speech in Washington that the U.S. must end the war in Iraq and that Afghanistan, by contrast, is a

war that we have to win. McCain has described Obamas call for withdrawal from Iraq as tantamount to declaring defeat and points to the lower levels of violence in Iraq as evidence that sending additional U.S. troops there has been a successful strategy. Sen. Obama will tell you we cant win in Afghanistan without losing in Iraq. In fact, he has it

exactly backwards, McCain told a town hall meeting. It is precisely the success of the surge in Iraq that shows us the way to succeed in Afghanistan. McCain added: I know how to win wars. And if Im elected president, I will turn around the war in Afghanistan, just as we have turned around the war in Iraq, with a comprehensive strategy for victory.
