After a struggle with medical
challenges that have taken a turn
for the better, San Carlos Charter
Learning Center’s Christopher
Mahoney announced he is step-
ping down from the school.
Mahoney, age 44 and the cen-
ter’s director, announced his
departure last
week in a letter
to the commu-
nity. In March,
he received a
liver transplant
for the autoim-
mune liver dis-
ease primary
s c l e r o s i n g
c h o l a n g i t i s ,
known as PSC, which he was diag-
nosed with in 2003. Then, in
2007, he was diagnosed with gall-
bladder cancer with about a 5 per-
cent chance of survival.
“As most of you know, the last
year has been a real personal chal-
lenge for my family and for me,”
he wrote in the letter dated Sept.
27. “While my recovery has
shown great progress, there con-
tinues to be more work to do. As
we are now at a point of natural
transition, it feels like the right
time for me to step aside so that
the school can continue to grow
and enhance its programs while I
focus on completing my recov-
ery. ”
Stacy Emory, director of curricu-
lum at the school, has been acting
as director since January when
Mahoney went out on medical
leave. Currently, the school is in
the hiring process to decide what
to do with Mahoney’s role. She
was not surprised by his decision
to step down.
“He had a lot of healing left to
do,” she said. “He’s super resilient
and very positive and looked at

Ohio capital city fights
rat problems with fliers
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Without
money to bring back its rat-control
program, the health department for
Ohio’s capital city plans to map com-
plaints and spread fliers educating resi-
dents about dealing with the rodents.
The Columbus Dispatch reports the
city’s service line has received over 200
rat complaints involving rental proper-
ties this year, almost reaching the total
for last year. In August, Columbus also
started logging complaints from non-
rental properties, with more than a
dozen so far.
Some people hope Columbus Public
Health resurrects a rat-control pilot pro-
gram conducted a few years ago, but the
proposed 2014 budget doesn’t include
money for that.
Virginia Tomolillo has trapped 22
rats in her yard this year. She blames a
neighbor who leaves dog food out-
doors, and she says city education
efforts might help.
Text mistakenly sent
to cop leads to arrest
SPARTA, N.J. — Authorities say a
New Jersey man mistakenly sent a text
message to a police detective to set up a
drug sale and now faces charges.
Authorities say a detective received
the text message on his new cellphone
Friday night. The sender had said he had
a quarter pound of marijuana for sale and
wanted to meet at a pizza parlor.
Nicholas Delear Jr., of Sussex, met
later that night with an undercover
police officer but fled when he became
suspicious. Police soon stopped his
vehicle, but the 33-year-old Delear
refused to consent to his vehicle being
Authorities obtained a warrant after a
police dog detected drugs in the vehicle.
They found four plastic bags containing
marijuana and other paraphernalia.
Jewels on French mountain
may be from plane crash
PARIS — AFrench mountain climber
stumbled upon a case of dozens of cut
jewels, worth hundreds of thousands of
dollars — believed to be debris from
one of two Air India crashes decades
ago, police said.
Police commander Sylvain Merly of
France’s Savoie region said the experi-
enced Mont Blanc climber, who asked
to stay anonymous, found the box
marked “Made in India” while scaling
one of the peak’s glaciers and turned it
in on Sept. 9. Authorities hope to find
someone connected with its owner, who
is presumed to have been a passenger on
one of the two jets that crashed in 1950
or 1966.
Merly said Thursday the metal box,
slightly smaller than a shoe box, was
filled with small bags of loose jewels,
mostly emeralds and sapphires. Merly
said debris from the Air India crashes
regularly rises to the surface on Mont
“Things come up from the glaciers,”
Merly said. “They’re always moving.”
Merly said the climber’s decision to
turn over the box immediately “means
that there are still honest people.”
“He could have kept them but he
chose to turn them in because he knew
they belonged to someone who proba-
bly perished,” Merly said.
It wasn’t immediately clear what
would happen to the jewels if nobody
claimed them.
Quack! Wisconsin bill

MADISON, Wis. — AWisconsin law-

Economic development, utility rates and
collaboration were among concerns shared
by candidates running for the San Bruno
City Council during last night’s forum at the
senior center moderated by the League of
Women Voters.
Councilmen Rico Medina and Ken Ibarra
are running for re-election with challengers
Andrew Mason and Marty Medina for two
seats on the City Council.
Utility rates
Candidates discussed lowering water and
sewer rates in San Bruno. Marty Medina was
concerned about increased service rates,
which he hopes to suspend. He noted that
this is his top priority.
“We have to do things fundamentally dif-
ferently,” said Marty Medina. “We need to
use different materials.”
In terms of collecting fees from those who
didn’t play utility fees, Marty Medina sug-
gested adding it as a tax.
Putting a utility bill on a property tax bill
is unrealistic, Ibarra said.
Using PVC pipes are also
lower quality and should
not be considered an
option, he added.
Additionally, the key
to lowering rates is tech-
nology for decreasing
rates. Efficiencies can
help save a lot of costs,
Mason said. This is the
biggest issue for Mason.
“I don’t think raising
rates is the way to go,”
Mason said. “You’ve got
to embrace technology
and train people in a new
way. The voters want
lower utilities or stop the
There have been huge
costs to upgrade utility
systems, Ibarra said.
“We have an old system and we have to
take care of it,” Ibarra said. “We are not the
highest, we are not the lowest, we are in the
Further, candidates

Creating a focus group
with someone from
industry to come in and
talk to public school edu-
cation students to learn
about real applications
would be a good idea,
Mason said. He is also
interested in more sci-
ence-focused programs.
Rico Medina said there
is collaboration between
the schools and the coun-
“We do need to work hand in hand,” Rico
Medina said. “There are opportunities for
each one of us to be engaged and involved.”

With less than a month left before
Election Day, six candidates vying for a
spot on the Redwood City Council took
turns last night sharing their views on top-
ics as wide ranging as the budget, public
safety and land use as they explained why
they are the best qualified person for the job.

munity activist and property manager James
Lee Han and incumbent councilmen John
Seybert and Jeff Gee are running for three

All six presented their qualifications and
positions at a forum sponsored by the
League of Women Voters held inside the
Redwood City Council chambers.
Rankin said “public safety is my area of
expertise” while Seybert prioritized a bal-
anced budget and the “renaissance” of
downtown. Howard emphasized her
accomplishments while on the council
previously, including the downtown reno-
vation and creation of a water recycling
program, and said the city needs to find
new revenue generators. Han said he is
motivated by affordable housing, having
had his mother pushed to Los Angeles by
Peninsula prices and himself challenged
to find a place with manageable rent.
Schmidt pointed to land use issues and Gee
highlighted a background in architecture
and work with agencies like SamTrans
that gives him insight into public transit.
All of the candidates lauded the idea of
partnering, whether it be for public safety,
child care or parks. Han suggested the city
also look at more immediate solutions like

Man tries luring
boy into car near school
Redwood City police are on the lookout for
a man who tried to lure a 13-year-old Kennedy
Middle School student
into his car with an offer
of drugs Tuesday morning.
At approximately 10
a.m., the boy was walking
through the staff parking
lot at 2521 Goodwin Ave.
on his way to his next
class when the man drove
into the lot, pulled along-
side him and stopped,
according to police.
The man then asked the boy if he “wanted
some weed” and tried to entice him into his
car. The boy said no, kept walking and ran to
the school office where he reported the inci-
dent, according to police.
The man is described as black, approxi-
mately 30, medium build, unshaven, with
short hair and a scar running vertically across
his right eye, according to police.

Sale of San Juan properties finalized
Belmont finalized the sale of the 8-acre
city-owned Bishop Road property for a little
more than $2 million yesterday with an
arrangement to dedicate six of the acres back
to the city as open space that will be open to
the public.
The Belmont City Council authorized the
purchase of 87 vacant parcels, comprising
approximately 35 acres, back in December
The land was offered at auction by the U.S.
Marshals Service and was acquired by the city
for about $1.5 million.
“This sale represents a significant mile-
stone for the preservation of open space in
the San Juan Hills Area,” said City Manager
Greg Scoles.
The new property owners, Shikui Chen and
Jie Yan, have indicated they will be moving
quickly to process a parcel map which will
then create three single-family residential
lots on 2 acres and the required open space
dedication, according to city staff.

Spanish-language Facebook page
In an effort to provide useful information to

Police Chief JR Gamez said social media
offers a “game-changing resource” in terms
of engaging with the Latino community.
“By creating a presence on this social
media site, we are opening a new door of com-
munication with our Spanish-speaking resi-
dents,” Gamez said.
The Facebook page, which can be accessed
a t
will provide the Latino community with
information related to personal safety, neigh-
borhood updates, gang and drug activity and
human-interest stories.

Department has tried to expand on its social

Yesterday marked the dedication of San
Mateo’s new Fiesta Gardens International
School, one of three schools to complete
campus modernizations and upgrades fund-
ed by Measure L.
Beginning last Wednesday, three of the
five San Mateo-Foster City School District
schools slated to undergo monumental
improvements at the behest of the 2008
majority-voter approved bond measure
have been dedicated.
Aceremony held on Sept. 25 at Baywood
Elementary School in San Mateo high-
lighted its new large group instruction
room and classroom buildings. Next
Wednesday, community and local support-
ers are invited to attend a dedication at
Foster City Elementary School. Foster
City School received numerous upgrades,
among them overall campus moderniza-
tions, new classrooms and field and play-
ground restoration.
Measure L was approved in the amount of
$175 million to improve the overall quali-
ty and safety of the 15 elementary schools,
one K-8 school and four middle schools in
the San Mateo-Foster City School District.
Improvements include fencing and securi-
t y, paint, classroom additions, multi-pur-
pose and administration buildings, sod
fields, playground structures, plumbing,
electrical, technology and more.
Yesterday’s dedication at the year-round
Spanish Immersion magnet school on
Bermuda Drive was held inside the school’s
newly constructed multi-purpose room,
flanked with blue and white balloons to
commemorate the celebration. Ahandful of
City Council members from San Mateo and
Foster City attended, as well members of

Fiesta Gardens Principal Varina
Williams, who worked as a teacher for nine
years at the school before taking the helm
two years ago, said that since the improve-
ments have been made to the school, the
students are enjoying a whole new and fresh
learning environment.
“It has been an amazing experience, our
kids can learn in a whole new way with
more interactive technology,” Williams
said. Since the erection of a new multi-pur-
pose room, a new computer lab has been
crafted in the school’s old multi-purpose
room. The spacious, angular room now
holds 35 black desktop computers with
ample space for kids to learn.
Allison Rowland, whose third-grade son
Mateo attends Fiesta Gardens, said the old
space where the computer lab now sits
couldn’t come close to accommodating the
school’s 507 students for an assembly.
“Now it’s wonderful, we love all of it,”
she said. Rowland is particularly fond of
the upgraded systems inside the classroom

tem for all students to see and hear the les-

Ruth Pauline Swofford, daughter of the
late John and Maggie Swofford, died in
Charlotte, N.C., Sept. 28
of natural causes.
She was 97.
Mrs. Swofford was
born Jan. 23, 1916 in
Avoca, Texas. She was
the youngest of six chil-
Although she took
great pride in being a
native Texan, Ruth always claimed that she
left her heart in San Francisco. Aresident of
Millbrae for 36 years, Ruth volunteered her
time to the Red Cross by driving an ambu-
lance and assisting in the transport of Bay
Area soldiers during World War II.
“Ruth always had a lust for life and conta-
gious vivacity. Indeed, her desire to live
each day to its fullest and appreciate the
simple things was never abandoned during
her final years. Ruth’s spontaneity resulted
in many fun memories with her family;
whether it involved late night ice cream
runs, (preferably Pistachio in a cake cone),
or taking a serendipitous last-minute road
trip to Disney World.”
Mrs. Swofford is survived by her daugh-
ter, Kathleen Ramirez, son-in-law Gilbert,
three grandchildren Melissa and husband
Daniel Gladziszewski, Natalie and Elise and
two great-grandchildren, Reece and Megan.

The pressure is on for the federal govern-
ment and states running their own health
insurance exchanges to get the systems up
and running after overloaded websites and
jammed phone lines frustrated consumers
for a second day as they tried to sign up for
coverage using the new marketplaces.
In some ways, the delays that persisted
Wednesday were good news for President
Barack Obama and supporters of his signa-
ture domestic policy achievement because
the holdups showed what appeared to be
exceptionally high interest in the over-
hauled insurance system. But if the glitches
aren’t fixed quickly, they could dampen
enthusiasm for the law at the same time
Republicans are using it as a rallying cry to
keep most of the federal government closed.
“It was worse today than it was yester-
day,” Denise Rathman of Des Moines said
after she tried for a second day to log onto
the Iowa site.
Rathman has insurance through Dec. 31
but said she is eager to sign up for a policy
because of her psoriatic arthritis, which has
caused her to be denied insurance in the past.
David Berge, a pastor with two young
children in Shoreview, Minn., tried unsuc-
cessfully at least 10 times to create an
online account on the state-run site MNsure.
His high-deductible plan expires at the end
of the year.
“I’m anxious to see what the insurance is
going to look like for my family at the
beginning of the year,” Berge said. “That’s

In California, home to 15 percent of the
nation’s uninsured, officials pulled the
enrollment portion of the Covered
California site down overnight for emer-
gency upgrades. It was restored midmorning
Wednesday, and 7,770 people had started
applications by then, spokesman Roy
Kennedy said.
California is one of a handful of mostly
Democratic states that opted to set up their
own exchanges rather than let the federal
government do it for them. In the 36 states
being operated by the federal Department of
Health and Human Services, consumer
patience was still being tested.
Agency spokeswoman Joanne Peters said
many Americans successfully enrolled on
the first day, but she declined to put a num-
ber on it. She said the delays were due to
“overwhelming interest” and high volume.

WASHINGTON — U.S. lawmakers from
both parties have expressed a willing-
ness to give President Barack Obama’s
outreach to Iran a chance to end to
Tehran’s nuclear standoff with the West ,
but at the same time they are crafting
tough new U.S. economic sanctions to
further isolate the Islamic republic.
Obama’s phone call last week to Iranian
President Hassan Rouhani was a ground-
breaking conversation. It was the first con-
tact in more than 30 years between the lead-
ers of the two countries and an about-face
from when Obama’s predecessor, George W.
Bush, included Iran in his “axis of evil” with
North Korea and Iraq.
Obama wants Rouhani to prove that he’s
willing to curtail some of his country’s ura-
nium enrichment activity, which many
believe is being used to give Iran nuclear
weapons capability.
Rouhani said Wednesday in Tehran that
Iran is open to discussing “details” of its
nuclear activities to reach a deal with world
powers. He emphasized Tehran’s longstand-
ing position that Iran has a fundamental
right to enrich uranium, a key ingredient of
nuclear weapons that Iran says it needs for
peaceful purposes.

WASHINGTON — President
Barack Obama brought congres-
sional leaders to the White House
on Wednesday for the first time
since a partial government shut-
down began, but there was no
sign of progress toward ending an
impasse that has idled 800,000
federal workers and curbed servic-
es around the country.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-
Ohio., told reporters after private
talks that lasted more than an
hour. “All we’re asking for here is

The high-level bickering at
microphones set up outside the
White House reflected the day’s
proceedings in the Capitol.
The Republican-controlled
House approved legislation to
reopen the nation’s parks and the
National Institutes of Health,
even though many Democrats
criticized them as part of a piece-
meal approach that fell far short
of what was needed. The bills face
dim prospects in the Senate, and
the White House threatened to
veto both in the unlikely event
they make it to Obama’s desk.
“What we’re trying to do is to
get the government open as
quickly as possible,” said the
House majority leader, Rep. Eric
Cantor of Virginia. “And all that
it would take is us realizing we

Security Agency chief Gen.
Keith Alexander revealed
Wednesday that his spy agency
once tested whether it could track
Americans’ cellphone locations,
in addition to its practice of
sweeping broad information
about calls made.
Alexander and Director of
National Intelligence James
Clapper testified at a Senate
Judiciary Committee hearing on
proposed reforms to the NSA’s
surveillance of phone and inter-
net usage around the world,
exposed in June by former NSA
analyst Edward Snowden. But
neither spy chief discussed pro-
posed reforms; instead they were
questioned about new potential
abuses that have come to light
since then.
Alexander denied a New York
Times report published Saturday
that said NSA searched social
networks of Americans search-
ing for foreign terror connec-
tions, and detailed 12 previously
revealed cases of abuse by NSA
employees who used the network
for unsanctioned missions like
spying on a spouse. He said all
employees were caught and most
were disciplined.
Alexander and Clapper also
told lawmakers that the govern-
ment shutdown that began
Tuesday over a budget impasse
is seriously damaging the intel-
ligence community’s ability to
guard against threats.
They said they’re keeping
counterterrorism staff at work as
well as those providing intelli-
gence to troops in Afghanistan,
but that some 70 percent of the
civilian workforce has been fur-
loughed. Any details on the jobs
held by the furloughed employ-
ees is classified.

TRIPOLI, Libya — An armed mob broke
into the Russian Embassy compound in the
Libyan capital of Tripoli on Wednesday,
climbing over walls, breaking down a metal
gate and shooting in the air. One of the
attackers was killed by the random gunfire,
and four more were wounded.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said none
of the embassy staff was wounded.
Libyan officials said they believed the
break-in was in response to the death of a
Libyan air force pilot, who they said was
killed by a Russian woman.
Wednesday’s violence briefly raised fears
of a repeat of last year’s deadly attack on a
U.S. compound in the eastern city of
Benghazi, in which the U.S. ambassador
and three other Americans were killed. In
that instance, on the anniversary of the
Sept. 11, 2001 terror attack, militants fired
mortars at the consulate, surrounded it and
set it on fire.
The Libyan official said Wednesday’s
attackers took down the Russian flag that
was hanging from the balcony of one of the
buildings. But they did not enter the
embassy buildings, he said, speaking on
condition of anonymity because he was not
authorized to talk to the media.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry Ministry
spokeswoman Maria Zakharova confirmed
the attack, saying on Ekho Moskvy radio
that according to preliminary information
no one among the embassy personnel was
The attackers were apparently reacting to
the killing of a Libyan air force pilot
Tuesday. Libyan authorities arrested a
Russian woman and accused her of killing
him writing offensive graffiti in his blood.
The woman also is accused of stabbing and
wounding the pilot’s mother.
Authorities said they did not know what
the woman’s motives might be, but noted
that in the graffiti on the walls, she
expressed sentiments against the Libyan
uprising that drove longtime leader
Moammar Gadhafi from power after an
eight-month civil war in 2011.
Libya has been hit by a months-long
wave of targeted killings against activists,
judges and security agents.
On Wednesday, gunmen in Benghazi shot
dead a naval officer and his 7-year-old son
before fleeing the scene. Most killings are
presumed to be the work of armed factions,
often acting out of revenge.

BEIRUT — Deadly clashes raged on the
edge of Damascus on Wednesday and rival
rebel factions battled each other in northern
Syria as international chemical weapons
inspectors began to secure the sites will
they will work.
The fighting underscored the immense
security challenge that the dozens of disar-
mament experts must negotiate as they
work amid the civil war to meet tight dead-
lines for eliminating President Bashar
Assad’s estimated 1,000-ton arsenal of
chemical weapons.
The inspectors’ mission — endorsed by a
U.N. Security Council resolution passed last
week — is to scrap Syria’s capacity to man-
ufacture chemical weapons by Nov. 1 and
destroy its entire stockpile by mid-2014.
A convoy of SUVs with U.N. markings
departed the central Damascus hotel where
the team from the Organization for the
Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is stay-
ing as the inspectors headed out for their
first full day in the country.
The U.N. and OPCW said in a statement
that “joint work with the Syrian authorities
has begun on securing the sites where the
team will operate, especially in outlying
areas.” It added that planning continues for
disabling production facilities as do discus-
sions on the size of Syria’s stockpile.
One of the challenges the inspectors face
is navigating the war itself.
On the northern edge of Damascus, fierce
clashes between Syrian troops and al-
Qaida-linked fighters killed at least 19 sol-
diers and pro-government militiamen in the
past three days, according to the Britain-
based Syrian Observatory for Human
The fighting in the contested district of
Barzeh flared Monday when the army
stepped up attacks against opposition
forces who have been trying to capture the
area for months, the Observatory said.
Districts such as Barzeh, on the edge of
Damascus, are important for rebels based in
the capital’s outer suburbs as the fighters try
to move closer to the heart of the city.

Troops deploy near
restive West Bank camp
JENIN, West Bank — Officials say hun-
dreds of Palestinian troops have deployed in
the West Bank’s Jenin district, reinforcing
the security presence in the increasingly
restive former militant stronghold.
The troops, wearing helmets and riot
gear, rode in a convoy of cars into the main
Jenin security compound Wednesday. They
assembled in formation in a parking lot.
The town of Jenin and its adjacent refugee
camp were controlled by vigilante gunmen
several years ago, but were then targeted in
a law-and-order campaign by the
Palestinian self-rule government.
The level of unrest has risen in recent
months, in part after Israelis raided the area
to arrest suspected militants. Three
Palestinians died in raids that turned violent
in the past two months. After the last
killing, stone-throwing camp residents
attacked Palestinian government offices in
the area.
Berlusconi weakened
by political about-face
MILAN — Silvio Berlusconi’s failed

aura of invincibility that has surrounded
him for two decades as he faces the possible
loss of his Senate seat and a ban from poli-
Still, it is unlikely to be his last act.
The 77-year-old three-time former premier
staged one of Italy’s most stunning politi-
cal plot twists in memory on Wednesday
when he took the Senate floor at the last
minute to announce that he would, after all,
support Premier Enrico Letta’s government
in a confidence vote.
It was a face-saving measure that came
after key loyalists in Berlusconi’s center-
right party refused to follow his bid to col-
lapse the coalition government as fallout
over his tax-fraud conviction.

Letters to the editor
Long Beach Press-Telegram
t’s not surprising that most
California voters want a do-over on
high-speed rail.
Fifty-two percent of respondents said the
bullet train project should be stopped,
according to a USC Dornsife/Los Angeles
Times poll conducted in mid-September and
released over the weekend. Of the 1,500
registered voters sampled, just 43 percent
wanted the project to continue.
If anything, it’s a bit surprising that 43
percent of voters still want the train to
move ahead. After all, the projected cost of
the project is now nearly twice what it was
when voters approved it. And that current
estimate might be quite low given that it
appears construction, which was supposed
to begin in 2012, will not start until some-
time next year — unless a lawsuit delays it
further, piling on more costs.
Voters approved a 2008 ballot measure to
sell bonds to get the rail project rolling.
But according to the poll, 70 percent want
the project to appear on the ballot again to
give voters another chance to give it a
thumbs-up or thumbs-down. That figure is
rising fast, up from 55 percent in a similar
poll a year ago, as voters get a closer look
at the obstacles the bullet train faces.
ASacramento judge ruled in August that
the rail construction authority had violated
two aspects of the 2008 ballot measure. In
November there will be hearings on possi-
ble punishment for those violations. The
construction authority is still trying to buy
about 325 rural properties for the first seg-
ment of track in the Central Valley —
where ridership demand is highly question-
The full, L.A.-to-Bay route is projected
to open in 2029.
Fifty-one percent of respondents termed
the project a waste of money, and 63 per-
cent said they would never or seldom take
the train. Fifty-eight percent of voters
would rather fly (32 percent) or drive (26
percent) between Southern California and
the Bay Area even if a bullet train were
available, while 39 percent would rather
take the train.
Amusingly, if the Hyperloop — high-
tech entrepreneur Elon Musk’s proposed,
somewhat fanciful tube transport concept
— were available, 55 percent would take it
compared with 14 percent who would drive,
13 percent who would take the train and 13
percent who would fly. But 65 percent
thought the Hyperloop was unrealistic.
But then, so is the bullet train at its pro-
jected cost, the way things are going.

7-Eleven must go
By now I imagine you have heard about
the armed robbery at the 7-Eleven at 507 N.
San Mateo Drive early Friday morning
(12:45 a.m.) Sept. 27, 2013 (“San Mateo
Drive 7-Eleven robbed at knifepoint” in
the Sept. 28 edition of the Daily Journal).
Police reports on criminal activity asso-
ciated with 7-Eleven and other 24/7 stores
anticipated increased criminal activity. The
armed robbery confirmed their findings. A
24/7 store has no place in a quiet neighbor-
hood. People who appreciate the conven-
ience of the store obviously would not
want it in their backyard.
Since the store opened, I have had no
peace of mind. My sleep is constantly
interrupted by late night deliveries, noisy
vehicles and conversations, store staff
smoking behind my place subjecting me to
their secondhand smoke. In addition, the
neighborhood has been inundated with
trash that can be directly linked to the
products sold in the 7-Eleven. The side-
walks are filthy with the remains of cus-
tomer-spilled Slurpees. The intersection of
San Mateo Drive and Bellevue Avenue has
become increasingly dangerous due to the
double-parked big rigs making deliveries
during rush hour traffic when youngsters are
walking to school.
I have lived here for 13 years, but I would
not buy today with the 7-Eleven next door.
There are plenty of commercial locations
on San Mateo Drive — there is no need for
the corporation to ruin our neighborhood.
We never had these problems before. The 7-
Eleven is not good for our health, our peace
of mind or our property values. It must go.

Government shutdown
So who’s the traitor and saboteur now?
Originally Edward Snowden and Private
Manning were the poster kids. They got
labeled for telling us the truth about our
government’s spying capers (The recording
and storing of any and all phone and text
messages by most all humans on planet
earth). They didn’t damage the faith and
credit of the American state or bankrupt our
treasury, but that was then and this is now.
The fanatical Republican Party has made
yesterday’s news for our homegrown truth
tellers. Rather than accept a health care bill
that they see as flawed and unworkable,
they see fit to simply “pull the house
down” literally. Rather than see the
Affordable Care Act as something to work
to repeal when the public might agree with
them at a future time, they think the “We
have to destroy the village in order to save
it” philosophy is the best way forward for
our nation. Interesting thinking.
So the truth tellers are bad Americans and
the valiant Republicans are patriots? We
need a new dictionary.

Voters’ remorse on high-speed rail is no surprise
Other voices
t least the last shutdown had
Monica. The presence of Ms.
Lewinsky amid the last federal gov-

showdowns, quasi-celebrities, a new job
description for D.C. interns, late-night
jokes, purse designs, an introduction of
Walt Whitman to new generations and even
the ever-present Drudge Report website.
Aren’t we all so lucky?
The former president got an Oval Office
“moment,” Monica got a stained blue dress
and ever-lasting infamy, and history got a
hefty dose of scandal. And the American
public? Well, for several weeks it got —
well let’s just say like Clinton, albeit in a
more negative and metaphorical way —
treated to a particular
intimate act.
Fast-forward 17 years

stomping their feet
again, both proclaim-

the same carnal treat-
ment. And paying for
the privilege! It’s not like these whiny
Congress members are digging into their

building as Social Security. Unfortunately,
unlike the Environmental Protection
Agency where more than 93 percent of

communal lot remains a gamble.
Postal service is also still happening,

nor rain nor the Internet nor the rising cost
of Forever stamps can kill delivery, neither
can dozens of grown men and women per-
turbed about not getting their way.
But hold on — the shutdown is about to
get real. The panda cam has gone dark.
Forget NASAand national parks. Meat
inspection and passport renewals? No big
deal. The real victim of this congressional
bickering is the hundreds — thousands or
millions, maybe? — of people who have
been checking in with the National Zoo to
peek at the bundle of panda cuteness born in
August. How in the heck are they expected
to procrastinate at work or get a momentary
mood lift without a tiny, hairless creature to
coo at?
Closer to home, Fleet Week festivities
have been largely grounded.
Suddenly the masses who haven’t been
paying attention to the fact the Affordable
Care Act and Obamacare are not different
things let alone that it caused a government
shutdown are wising up to the idea that
something out of the ordinary is going on.
Sadly, though, using a government shut-
down — or even just the threat of doing so
— is really not so out of the ordinary.
Shutdowns and filibusters are the new rage
in political maneuvering. Don’t like a pro-
posed piece of legislation? Talk until you’re
blue in the face and then talk some more.
Don’t like a piece of legislation that was
passed? Turn your back, refuse to talk and
refuse to spend money.
And unlike the grand debacle of 1995-96,
this year’s version doesn’t yet appear to
have any entertaining aspect worth remem-
bering 17 years in the future. That’s even
more reason to hope that unlike the
Clinton-era shutdown, this nonsense quick-
ly blows over.

NEW YORK — Fear of a protracted
U.S. government shutdown is making
global investors increasingly nerv-
U.S. and European stock markets
fell Wednesday as investors and world
leaders worried about the threat to the
global economy. Europe’s top central
banker called the partial shutdown “a
risk if protracted.” Boston’s Federal
Reserve Bank president cited the
budget battle as a reason the Fed
refused to pull back its economic stim-
ulus last month, and President Barack
Obama appeared on financial network
CNBC to urge Congress to pass a
budget and avoid derailing the
nation’s economic recovery.
After shrugging off the first day of
the shutdown Tuesday, Wall Street
made it clear on the second day that it
was more and more nervous that the
budget fight could turn into something
worse, a failure to raise the nation’s
borrowing limit.
“I’m not going out there and beating
my chest and saying the world is com-
ing to an end here,” said Brad
McMillan, the Chief Investment
Officer at Commonwealth Financial,
an investment adviser. “But we face
the possibility for significantly
greater disruptions.”
The looming crisis has been grow-
ing for weeks. Republicans in the
House of Representatives are insist-
ing that Democrats negotiate over a
new health care law as part of the
budget talks. Senate Democrats, led
by Majority Leader Harry Reid of
Nevada, insist that Republicans pass a
straightforward temporary funding
bill with no strings attached.
The political gridlock could prevent
the U.S. government from borrowing
more money to cover its bills and pay
back creditors later this month. The
financial market sees that as a disas-
trous move that could send the U.S.
into recession.
On Wednesday, the major indexes
opened sharply lower, as U.S. law-
makers appearing unwilling to yield
in their entrenched positions. After
Obama summoned Congressional
leaders to the White House later in the
morning, the market started to recoup
some of its losses, but the recovery
faded throughout the afternoon.
“The markets are sending a loud
message to Washington lawmakers to
get their act together and resolve the
budget crisis,” said Peter Cardillo,
chief market economist at Rockwell
Global Capital.
The Dow Jones industrial average
ended the day down 58.56 points, or
0.4 percent, at 15,133.14 points. The
Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 1.13
points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,693.87.
The Nasdaq composite declined 2.96
points, or 0.1 percent, to 3,815.02.
Six of 10 industry sectors in the
S&P 500 fell. Declines were led by the
makers of consumer staples and indus-
trial companies.
Defense companies, which rely on
government contracts for a large part
of their revenue, led declines for
industrial companies. Raytheon fell
$1.73, or 2.2 percent, to $76.08.
Lockheed Martin dropped $2.42, or
1.9 percent, to $125.
Earlier, European Central Bank head
Mario Draghi said that the partial U.S.
government shutdown was a risk to
economic recoveries in the U.S. and
Chief executives from the nation’s
biggest financial firms met with
Obama for more than an hour
Wednesday. Referring to the potential
showdown over raising the govern-
ment’s borrowing limit, Lloyd
Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs,
said: “We shouldn’t use threats of
causing the U.S. to fail ... as a cudg-
Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew told
Congress that unless lawmakers act in
time, he will run out of money to pay
the nation’s bills by Oct. 17.
Congress must periodically raise the
limit on government borrowing to
keep U.S. funds flowing, but the once-
routine matter has now become a bar-
gaining chip in battles over the feder-
al budget deficit.

SEATTLE — Shares of electric car
company Tesla sank more than 6 per-
cent Wednesday after an Internet video
showed flames spewing from one of
the company’s vehicles near Seattle.
Shares of Tesla Motors Inc. fell
$12.05 to $180.95 — the stock’s
biggest one-day decline since July
The incident happened Tuesday after
8 a.m. as the driver was traveling
southbound on state Route 167
through Kent, said Trooper Chris
Webb of the Washington State Patrol.
The driver stated that he believed he
had struck some metal debris on the
freeway, so he exited the highway and
the vehicle became disabled.
The driver told authorities he began
to smell something burning and then
the vehicle caught fire. Firefighters
needed several attempts to extinguish
the flames because the blaze kept
reigniting, Webb said. Atrooper who
responded to the scene was unable to
locate any objects on the roadway, but
Department of Transportation work-
ers did observe some debris near the
Webb said there was too much dam-
age from the fire to see what damage
the debris may have caused.
The automobile site Jalopnik.com
posted photos of the blaze that it says
were taken by a reader, along with a
video. The video shows the front of
the Tesla Model S in flames.
In a statement issued Wednesday,
Tesla said the fire was caused by “sub-
stantial damage” to the car when the
driver hit a large metal object in the
road. The flames, the company said,
were contained to the front of the
$70,000 vehicle due to its design and
“All indications are that the fire
never entered the interior cabin of the
car. It was extinguished on-site by the
Fire Department,” the statement said.
Shares of Palo Alto-based Tesla
have risen more than 400 percent
since the start of the year. But
investors likely were alarmed, with
some selling their shares, out of fear
that the fire could be an indication of
a flaw in the company’s battery

SAN FRANCISCO — Internet stocks
are heating up again, just as Twitter is
preparing to turn up the temperature
with its highly anticipated IPO.
Consider what’s happened in the
past month: The once-scorned stocks
of Netflix and Facebook have soared to
new highs; Yahoo’s long-languishing
stock has regained its vigor and sur-
passed $34 for the first time in nearly
six years; enamored investors just
poured more than $1.7 billion into
secondary stock offerings by LinkedIn
and Pandora Media Inc.; and
Priceline.com’s stock recently broke
$1,000, catapulting past its peak
reached in 1999 during the dot-com
“There is great demand right now
to invest in companies that could be
powering the future, but it’s a win-
dow of opportunity that won’t last
forever,” says BGC Financial ana-
lyst Colin Gillis.
As hot as some Internet stocks are,
the fervor is nothing like it was in the
late 1990s when investors minted
dozens of unprofitable companies with
rich market values.
“The difference is that investors
today are investing on value rather
than on emotion and hype, as was the
case in 1998 to 2000,” says Jeff
Corbin, CEO of investor relations

Oracle defends CEO’s
pay amid shareholder unrest
SAN FRANCISCO — Oracle is facing a potential share-
holder revolt against a compensation formula that has
consistently made its billionaire co-founder, Larry
Ellison, one of the best-paid CEOs in the world.
The business software maker staunchly defended
Ellison’s pay in a letter sent to shareholder activist firm
CtWInvestment Group in an effort to rally support for its
board of directors before the 11 members stand for re-elec-
tion at Oracle’s annual meeting on Oct. 31.
The letter released in a Wednesday regulatory filing came
in response to a scathing attack that CtW launched last
week against the compensation that Ellison has been
receiving from the Redwood Shores company for years.
CtW doesn’t own any Oracle shares directly, but the
Washington D.C. group is paid to fight for shareholder
causes. It is vowing to organize the pension funds of labor
groups that are stockholders unless the company changes
its ways. Oracle’s letter gave no indication that the com-
pany is going to relent, setting the stage for an attempt to
oust at least three of Oracle’s directors at the annual meet-
i ng.
S.F. supervisors back flexible work law
SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco legislation requir-
ing businesses to consider requests for flexible work
schedules from employees who serve as caregivers
appears set to become law.
The Board of Supervisors unanimously backed the bill
on Tuesday, and Mayor Ed Lee has indicated he will sign
it.Under the law, workers would be able to ask their
employers to allow them to telecommute, adjust their start
times or job share in order to care for children, parents or
other family members.

OAKLAND — Brett Anderson could hardly
be happier about returning to the postseason,
even if it’s in a much different role than he’s
accustomed to with the Oakland Athletics.
Nearly a year after starting Game 3 of the
2012 division series, and six months after
getting the ball on opening day, Anderson
will be in the bullpen when Oakland hosts the
Detroit Tigers in the AL playoffs beginning
“I have to be ready from
the first pitch to the last
out,” Anderson said fol-
lowing the A’s workout
Wednesday. “I could be in
any situation. My stuff
kind of plays anywhere, so
it’s being open to those
roles and trying to help
the team win.”
It’s not a brand-new job
for Anderson.
The left-hander has been pitching in relief
for the AL West champions since returning
from the disabled list in late August after miss-
ing more than four months with a sprained
ankle and stress fracture in his right foot.
His numbers as a reliever are actually better
than they were as a starter.
In five starts, Anderson went 1-4 with a 7.23
ERA. As a reliever, he had three saves and 22
strikeouts over 21 innings with a 4.71 ERA.
With the A’s hoping to make a deep run in
the postseason, Anderson is content taking
another shot at a World Series ring no matter
what his role.
“Starting is what I’ve done pretty much up
until this point but now it’s, where is the
need?” Anderson said. “Egos go out of the
window in the postseason.”
That was the type of response A’s manager
Bob Melvin was hoping for after leaving
Anderson’s name off the list when he
announced Oakland’s starting rotation for the
best-of-five series with the Tigers.

It was only appropriate the Hillsdale-
Carlmont girls’ tennis match was decided by
one point.
After all, the two teams entered the con-
test with identical 5-0 records in Peninsula
Athletic League Bay Division play.
And after nearly two hours of play, it was
Hillsdale that pulled out a slim 4-3 victory
over Carlmont, relying on the formula the
Knights have used to get to this point in the
season: sweep the four singles matches.
While most of the match went to form —
the Knights won the Nos. 2, 3 and 4 singles
matches, while the Scots swept the three
doubles matches — the final match on the
court was No. 1 singles, that saw
Carlmont’s Cori Sidel push Hillsdale’s
Cindy Liu to the brink. Liu, who had not
been tested all season, dropped her first set
of PAL play this season, but rallied to win
the final two sets to pull out a 2-6, 6-4, 6-2
“Cori played really well,” Liu said. “I was
proud I was able to get through it, even
though I wasn’t playing my best.”
Sidel came out swinging and, before you
knew it, she was up 5-0 in the first set. Liu
won two straight games, but Sidel closed out
the set when Liu dumped a shot into the net.
“It was hard (for me) to get started and
[Sidel] started off aggressively,” Liu said. “I
noticed in the second set she started to
tighten up and started missing more (shots)
and that gave me confidence.”
The two stayed on serve through the first
three games of the second set, before Liu
broke Sidel to go up 3-1. Liu eventually
built a 4-1 lead, but Sidel battled back and
closed to 5-4.
Line judges were called before the 10th
game after a couple of close calls were ques-
tioned. With Sidel serving to stay in the set,
the two battled to 40-all. Sidel served to Liu
and, during the rally, Liu hit a volley that
was close to the line. No one called the ball
in or out and the line judges were not asked.
Point and set to Liu to force a deciding
third set.
Knights stay unbeaten
Hillsdale’s Cindy Liu hits a return on the run during her 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 win over Carlmont’s Cori
Sidel to give the Knights a 4-3 win over the Scots.The win keeps Hillsdale undefeated in PAL
Bay Division play, while handing Carlmont its first league loss of the season.

CLEVELAND — The Tampa Bay Rays’ road
show rolls on. Next stop: Boston.
Alex Cobb dodged trouble for nearly seven
innings and the Rays pitched their way to
another must-have win on the road, beating
the Cleveland Indians 4-0 Wednesday night in
the ALwild-card game.
Cobb, who missed a chunk of the regular
season after he was hit in the head by a line
drive, quieted a thundering Cleveland crowd
and ended the Indians’ unexpected season.
Delmon Young homered in the third inning
off rookie Danny Salazar as the Rays, playing
in their third city over four days, advanced to
face the ALEast champion Red Sox in the divi-
sion series starting Friday.
Cobb’s comeback in August from his fright-
ening injury helped stabilize the Rays, who
have spent the past two weeks winning crucial
games to make the postseason for the fourth
time in six years.
Cobb pitched out of massive jams in the
fourth and fifth, and allowed two runners to
reach in the seventh before turning it over to
Tampa Bay’s dependable bullpen.
Joel Peralta struck out Nick Swisher on
three pitches, ending Cleveland’s last real
Fernando Rodney worked a perfect ninth,
striking out Lonnie Chisenhall to end it.

ALAMEDA — The Oakland Raiders got one of their two
biggest offensive playmakers back at practice.
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor returned to practice Wednesday
and was working with the first team after missing last
week’s game with a concussion, while running back Darren
McFadden is still sidelined by a hamstring injury that pre-
vented him from finishing last week’s game.
The Raiders had hoped Pryor would play last Sunday
against Washington but decided to hold
him out after he complained of sensitiv-
ity to light Saturday night — a classic
concussion symptom.
Pryor is once again symptom free and
appears on target to resume his starting
role when the Raiders (1-3) host San
Diego (2-2) on Sunday night.
He plans to be the same player he was
before the injury, not worried about tak-
ing another hard hit like the one Wesley
Woodyard delivered on Sept. 23 in Denver that led to the
“I just try to make the right decisions and the smart deci-
sions and be a smart person and player,” Pryor said.
“Obviously, if there’s three guys coming cramming down
on me I don’t want to challenge all three of those guys so
get down. Just be myself and play football. That’s how I
have to play. ”
It will be a much-welcomed return after Raiders fans
booed backup Matt Flynn repeatedly while watching the
offense stagnate in a 24-14 loss to Washington.
Flynn, who was expected to start before losing the job in
the exhibition season to Pryor, showed little pocket aware-
ness. He threw an interception that was returned for a
touchdown and took seven sacks, while leading just one
scoring drive.
That performance helped drop Flynn to third-team status
behind undrafted rookie Matt McGloin, a fast fall after
Oakland traded two draft picks to acquire Flynn and gave
him $6.5 million in guaranteed money.
“It hasn’t worked out like we anticipated and we’ve got to
make decisions and we’ve got to move forward and contin-
ue to go,” coach Dennis Allen said. “Matt’s going to con-
tinue to battle and scratch and claw and I still believe that
he’s a capable quarterback.”
Pryor had helped obscure many of Oakland’s problems
on offense with his athleticism that has allowed him to
turn broken plays into big ones.
Pryor completed 65.4 percent of his passes the first three
weeks for 624 yards and two touchdowns. He has also
rushed for 198 yards on 26 carries and has not turned the
ball over since throwing two interceptions in an opening
week loss to Indianapolis.
“If you start trying to limit the things that he does, I
think you decrease his effectiveness,” Allen said. “You
have to let him be the quarterback that he is and let him
make plays.”
McFadden initially got hurt in the first quarter of the loss
to the Redskins and tried to come back later in the first half
before shutting it down for the game. McFadden leads the
Raiders with 215 yards rushing but has been hampered by a
variety of injuries for his entire career.
McFadden has missed 23 full games over his first five
seasons because of injuries. While Allen said it is too early
to know whether McFadden will miss this game, ham-
strings are tricky injuries for running backs and the Raiders
will likely be cautious.
“No real updates, nothing really to report,” Allen said.
“He’s got a hamstring, and he’s trying to rehab it and get
out there as fast as he can.”
Marcel Reece was back at practice after hurting his knee
in Sunday’s loss and got some time at halfback instead of
his usual fullback position. Reece started four games at
halfback last season because of injuries, rushing for 261
yards and catching 20 passes for 195 yards. Reece has only
two carries and six catches this season.
Rashad Jennings ran for 45 yards and caught eight pass-
es for 71 yards with Reece and McFadden both sidelined in
the second half last week.
NOTES: C Stefen Wisniewski (right knee) did not prac-
tice but the Raiders are hopeful he will play. ... WR Andre
Holmes practiced for the first time after his PED suspen-
sion. ... FS Charles Woodson (non-injury) and DT Stacy
McGee (shoulder) also did not practice. ... OL Menelik
Watson returned to practice for the first time since knee sur-
gery. ... The Raiders signed RB George Winn to the prac-
tice squad.

Official: Service academy games will go on
U.S. military academy football teams will play this week-
end, despite the government shutdown.
A senior defense official said Wednesday the decision
affects this weekend’s games only, and future games will be
evaluated as events unfold.
The official was not authorized to discuss the matter pub-
licly so spoke on condition of anonymity.
Army’s game at Boston College, and Air Force’s game at
Navy in Annapolis, Md., on Saturday were in jeopardy after
the Defense Department temporarily suspended sports com-
petition at the service academies as a result of the budget
impasse in Congress.
The teams will be allowed to play because the games are
paid for with non-appropriated funds, and have been long
planned. Non-appropriated funds generally come from out-
side sources and are not approved through Congress.
A phone message left with Navy athletic director Chet
Gladchuk was not immediately returned, along with email
messages left with spokesmen for Army and Air Force.
Earlier in the day, Gladchuk said he was optimistic the
Pentagon would allow the games to be played.
He said the athletic department has provided information
to Pentagon officials to assure them that no government
funds will be spent on any aspect of the game. Gladchuk
said a Navy home game brings in about $4 million from
tickets, sponsorship, television and radio rights fees and
other revenues such as parking and concessions. The game
essentially pays for itself, he said.
Football revenue also funds Navy’s 32 other sports
“It would be devastating to our budget,” Gladchuk said
about having a home game canceled.
The coaches and players involved were still preparing for
the games to be played.
“I wouldn’t say they’re oblivious, but they are practicing
and trying to maintain that laser focus,” Gladchuk said.
Boston College coach Steve Addazio said: “In my mind,
we are playing on Saturday. It’s just how I feel.”

SANTACLARA— Meet Mr. Hitner.
Called by that name for years out of
respect for his hard-hitting defense, San
Francisco safety Donte Whitner has filed
paperwork in Ohio through his lawyer to
formally change his name by removing the
‘W’ — after receiving permission from his
mother, Deborah, to do so.
“My last name was Whitner, now it’s
Hitner,” Whitner said Wednesday. “Yeah,
it’s legal, I’m taking the ‘W’ off. I asked my
mom first, though. She said no in the sum-
mer, then she said yes three nights ago. It’s
pretty cool.”
Whitner has been in touch with Nike to
determine how many No. 31 Whitner jer-
seys are still for sale in retail stores and
elsewhere and whether he might need to
financially contribute to make the switch.
He doesn’t seem overly concerned about
that small part of the process.
“Depending how many there are,” he said.
“I haven’t really seen that many around
Candlestick, unless somebody’s hiding
The $27 fee for legally changing his
name is money well spent, Whitner said.
His uncle, Mario Whitner, helped encour-
age Whitner’s mother —
Mario’s sister — to go
along with the switch.
“The only person I real-
ly take instruction from
is my mom. That’s why
I’m happy this week she
said yes. I asked her
again,” Whitner said.
“My uncle just came
home and he pretty much
convinced her. He was a guy that was there
for me when I was a little, little boy and
went away for a while, to prison.”
While he would love to debut his new
name for Sunday night’s prime-time game at
home in Candlestick Park against the
Houston Texans, he said it realistically
would probably take another week before
his new name is on the back of his uniform.
That would be Oct. 13 at Arizona.
Coach Jim Harbaugh learned of Whitner’s
plans Wednesday, then approached him in
the locker room with encouraging words:
“It’s kind of catchy. ”
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick also
approved, offering a “good change” with a
thumbs-up of support.
Is he taking a cue or two from Chad
Johnson — who became Chad Ochocinco
for a time — or NBA star Ron Artest’s
change to Metta World Peace?
“That was a lot,” Whitner said of World
Peace. “I think one word is not as big as 10
words. It’s what I do. It’s my last name.
Removing a letter makes it pretty cool.”
No matter what it says on the back of the
safety’s jersey Sunday, everybody on the
defense has one name they want on the field:
Linebacker Patrick Willis missed last
Thursday night’s 35-11 victory at St. Louis
with a strained groin sustained against the
Colts on Sept. 22, an injury even the All-
Pro thought was far worse than it is.
Defensive teammate Justin Smith deemed
Willis a go for Sunday, and he returned to
practice Wednesday.
“He’s playing, so definitely,” Smith said
when asked about Willis’ impact.
Willis is encouraged with his progress
considering this is an injury he has never
had before. Yet he insists he won’t play
unless he knows he is healthy enough to
help the team — and he is still dealing with
some pain.
“The only thing I can do is have the right
mindset,” Willis said. “The biggest thing
right now is making sure I stay on pace and
don’t do too much and at the same make sure
that if I’m going to be out there I can help
my teammates and help us win.”
The 49ers have no imminent updates or
announcements planned on the status of
linebacker Aldon Smith, who entered an in-
patient rehab facility last week for sub-
stance abuse. He is on an indefinite leave of
absence and the team doesn’t comment on
personal matters.
Also Wednesday, San Francisco signed
quarterback John Skelton to a one-year con-
tract, giving them a strong-armed third-
Skelton signed a day after the Niners
waived rookie B.J. Daniels, whom
Harbaugh had hoped could still be a practice
squad option before the rival Seahawks
snatched him up off waivers. Skelton was
cut by the Bengals on Aug. 31 when they set
their 53-man roster. Cincinnati claimed
Skelton off waivers when the Arizona
Cardinals — the 49ers’ NFC West foe — let
him go in April.
Skelton worked out for the team last
“He had an excellent workout when he was
here a few weeks back, one of the better
workouts I’ve seen from a quarterback in
those workout environments,” Harbaugh
said. “Felt like we wanted to have two veter-
an quarterbacks, two guys that have started
games, played in games, won games. Felt
that’s what we needed to do at this time.”
Whitner to become ‘Hitner’ —seriously

Seattle claims former 49ers
QB B.J. Daniels off waivers
RENTON, Wash. — The Seattle Seahawks
have added a third quarterback to their roster
by claiming B.J. Daniels off waivers from
San Francisco.
Seattle made the roster move Wednesday.
The Seahawks released rookie linebacker
John Lotulelei to clear a spot on the 53-man
roster for Daniels.
The 49ers waived Daniels on Tuesday after
they decided to sign John Skelton. San
Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh said he was
hoping to re-sign Daniels to the practice
squad and the 49ers had plans for develop-
ing Daniels, but the Seahawks swooped in
and signed him first.
Daniels did not appear in a regular season
game. He was a seventh-round pick in the
April draft by the 49ers.
Jets’ coach says no to color
codes for struggling Smith
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Rex Ryan put
the red light on a color-coded system to
help Geno Smith.
Afew hours after saying the New York Jets
are considering using a wristband with
plays designated by color — red, yellow and
green — the coach said in a radio interview
Wednesday he doesn’t plan on doing it now.
The Jets, trying to help cut down on
turnovers in games, used the same method
during Mark Sanchez’s rookie season in
2009 to help him determine how aggressive
he can be on a given play.
During his news conference, Ryan said
the team hadn’t planned anything specific
to aid Smith just yet, but added that using
the color-coded wristband was a possibility.
He later told ESPN NY98.7 that he changed
his mind.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The pocket was breaking down
and Alex Smith was running out of time, so he did what so
few quarterbacks in Kansas City have ever been able to do
over the years.
Smith took off and picked up a first down with his feet.
He didn’t throw a ball into an impossibly tight space, or
tempt double coverage and get picked off. He didn’t stum-
ble around as his offensive line caved in around him, or
get chased around by a couple of New York Giants before
finally succumbing to a sack.
Instead, Smith remained unflappable
under pressure, exuding the kind of
poise that infects an entire offense.
More than once he scrambled for first
downs last Sunday, giving the Chiefs
the spark they needed for a 31-7 victo-
ry and their first 4-0 start in a decade.
“He seems to handle everything well,
and kind of keeps a calm among the
chaos,” said Chiefs coach Andy Reid,
who has said repeatedly he tried to trade
for Smith when Reid was still with the Eagles. “He’s able
to keep it all in perspective. He demands a lot of the guys
around him in his own way. That’s important. He does that
At some point in time, calling a quarterback a “game
manager” became a derogatory description. Guys who
throw safe passes, refuse to test sticky-fingered defensive
backs, and make sure their teams are put in good positions
became blase. By contrast, those willing to fling the ball
all over the field with an all-or-nothing mentality grew in
Smith has always taken the cerebral approach, though.
He prides himself on not making mistakes — often to the
chagrin of fans who’d rather seem him throw it downfield.
“The most important thing in football is controlling
the ball, time of possession,” Chiefs tight end Kevin
Brock said. “Guys who control the clock, don’t turn the
ball over, they’re the successful guys. If they want to say
that’s what he does for us, I’ll take it any day.”
Smith has thrown only 22 interceptions since the 2010
season, the fewest of any quarterback with at least 1,000
pass attempts. The Patriots’ Tom Brady is next with 26
His streak of 160 pass attempts without a pick ended
when he threw two last Sunday against the Giants. Even
then, only one of them was a badly thrown pass.
Indeed, Smith is a big reason the Chiefs are tied with the
Tennessee Titans, their opponent on Sunday, for the NFL’s
best turnover margin.
“For me, I’m just making my reads and throwing the ball
where it’s supposed to go,” Smith offered by way of expla-
nation. “Just where the defense is telling me.”
Often, the defense has been telling him to run.
Smith has run the zone-read several times this season,
but mostly he’s been scrambling when the pressure threat-
ens him. But the result has been the same: He’s on pace to
run for more than 600 yards, which would easily be a
career high.
“I think it’s something that can help us at times, some-
thing I take pride in,” he said. “If they’re going to give me
that, I have to make plays with my legs, make them pay.
When it is there, take advantage of it, for sure.”
Smith is also on pace to throw for 3,828 yards and 28
touchdowns; both would be career highs. And in what must
feel especially gratifying, he’s thrown for more yards and
TDs with fewer interceptions than Colin Kaepernick, the
quarterback who took his job in San Francisco.
More importantly, he has the Chiefs at 4-0. The 49ers
are 2-2.
“He took us to the NFC championship when I was with
the Niners. People doubted him, but I always knew what
type of quarterback he was,” said Titans tight end Delanie
Walker. “He knows how to win games. He’s doing a great
job over there doing that.”

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh police
didn’t dispute Twitter claims by the
wife of Cincinnati Reds pitcher Mat
Latos that she was punched and had
her hair pulled by a fan during the
National League wild-card game, but
said they consider the matter “closed”
and won’t file criminal charges.
Sgt. John Fisher, who headed the
18-officer contingent that augmented
stadium security on Tuesday, told
reporters the incident was “much ado
about nothing. What made it big was
it involved a pitcher’s wife and it all
went on Twitter.”
At a news conference Wednesday,
Fisher told reporters that stadium
security called police to break up an
argument involving 20 to 30
Cincinnati and Pirates fans at the
Budweiser Bowtie Bar inside PNC
Park during the Pirates’ 6-2 win
Tuesday night.
Police didn’t see Dallas Latos being
attacked but interviewed her afterward
when a stadium security worker told
officers of her claims, which she later
tweeted. Latos didn’t have visible
injuries and refused medical treatment
when she was interviewed by police,
Fisher said.
Latos tweeted she was “punched in
the head at least three times” by a
Pirates fan and her hair was pulled,
writing “I’m ‘fine’ but my head hurts.
Never swung back bc I was trying to
protect myself.”
Latos was not among seven fans
ejected by police, though two females
with Latos were tossed as were five
Pirates fans, including the woman
who allegedly attacked Latos. Police
know the woman’s name and gave it
to Latos so she can press charges if
she wants, but aren’t releasing the
name because the woman wasn’t
arrested, Fisher said.
Fisher said Latos can file a private
criminal complaint, which must be
vetted by a county prosecutor. Under
Pennsylvania law, police can’t arrest
people for fights that warrant only
misdemeanor charges like simple
assault or summary citations, which
are similar to traffic tickets, for
offenses like harassment, Fisher said.
In such instances, police either file
charges and send the accused a court
summons or, as was done in this case,
let the parties file private complaints.
The argument involved “overzeal-
ous fans and banter back and forth
between Pittsburgh and Cincinnati
fans,” Fisher said, adding all partici-
pants “appeared to be drinking and
intoxicated to one level or another.”
Latos had been sitting in an area
reserved for visiting players’ wives
and families, which was guarded by
stadium security, before some of her
group went to the bar about 10 seat-
ing sections away where they weren’t
shielded from the general public,
Fisher said.
Police wouldn’t say whether the
other ejected Cincinnati fans were
also wives or otherwise related to
On Twitter, Latos claimed that a
Pirates fan insulted another Reds’
player’s grandmother and called Latos
a name when she asked him to stop.
Latos contends the man’s female
companion then punched her and
pulled her hair.
Reds spokesman Rob Butcher said
the team has no comment except to
say it contacted the Pirates about the
incident. Pirates spokesman Brian
Warecki said fan safety is a “top pri-
ority” for the team. He said the disrup-
tion was turned over to police after
stadium security workers’ “attempts
to calm the situation and eject mem-
bers of the unruly parties were met
with escalating profanity and
Latos tweeted Wednesday suggest-
ing she was suffering a backlash for
“The fact that our society con-
demns victims is disgusting,” she
wrote. “I have nothing to gain from
telling my story besides a bunch of
hate so save it.”
Police: No charges
in fight involving
Reds pitcher’s wife
Expert: Mark Cuban not
barred from selling shares
DALLAS — A financial expert is
telling jurors in Mark Cuban’s
insider-trading trial that he talked to
the billionaire about a transaction
that would lower the value of one of
his stock holdings.
Arnold Owen testified Wednesday
that he didn’t think Cuban was
barred from selling his shares in
Momma.com or required to keep
their 2004 phone call confidential.
Owen was working for an invest-
ment bank hired by the search-
engine company to find investors
for a stock offering. The offering
lowered the value of the company’s
previous shares, including 600,000
that Cuban owned.
The Securities and Exchange
Commission says Cuban avoided
$750,000 in losses by using inside
information to sell his shares.

be an advertisement for them and then have
to do write-ups for all the other companies
around here that offer these types of servic-
es. There are two here on the Peninsula of
which I am aware and let’s leave it at that.
Jones has the numbers to play at the next
level. In 15 games at the varsity level
(2012 and four games this season), Jones
has caught 92 passes for 1,256 yards and
16 touchdowns.
The one thing missing, however, were
the eyeballs of college coaches. Jones
spent his freshman year at a school in Ohio
and had some interest from colleges. But
when he moved to California, the process
ground to a halt.
So Jones decided to sign up with this par-
ticular recruiting service and things have
changed dramatically for his college
prospects over the last year and a half.
“Midway through my junior year, I was-
n’t really talking to anyone,” Jones said.
“I couldn’t figure out what the factors were
(keeping me getting recruited).
“My junior year was going by and I start-
ed getting pamphlets and getting invited to
camps and coaches were asking, ‘Where is
your film?’ I was like, ‘I don’t have that.’
(That’s when I thought) maybe I should get
on top of that.”
But just signing with a recruiting service
is the first — and easiest — step. Jones
still needs to put in as much work on the
recruiting process as he does on the field
and in the classroom.
“Terra Nova has turned things around and
is making a statement. We’ve won some
big games. I think we’re starting to get the
recognition we need (to attract the atten-
tion of college coaches),” Jones said. “But
I also email 10 to 15 coaches a day. I’m
trying to get my name out there.”
Jones said the service he uses walks all
their clients through the process, provid-
ing all the contact information of coaches
around the country and making sure all the
proper paperwork is filled out.
Jones was apprehensive and skeptical at
“In the beginning, it was kind of awk-
ward. ‘Is this really going to work?’” Jones
said. “But the more I’ve been doing this
and the more realistic I’ve been getting,
I’ve been getting a lot of calls and emails.”
Jones knows a big-time football school
will probably not come knocking on his
door. He also knows, however, that if he
wants to play football in college, there is a
spot for him.
“Whatever pays for my education (is the
goal),” Jones said. “I can’t really see
myself not playing in college, even if it’s
down to the NAIAlevel.”
And that’s the attitude every athlete needs
to take if they want to play in college. You
can’t just sit on the couch and expect col-
lege coaches to come knock on your door,
or have unrealistic expectations. Much like
the work you put on the field or court, you
need to work hard to get yourself noticed.
The work is paying for Jones. He said he
has been in constant contact with a few
schools and plans on taking recruiting
trips to these schools.
“I’ll do whatever it takes,” Jones said.

The third set was all Liu, who broke Sidel
in the sixth game to go up 4-2 and then
broke her again to win 6-2 and give
Hillsdale the team win.
“We came in knowing it would be a very
tough match to win,” said Carlmont coach
Amina Halsey. “I think [Sidel] played well,
but she got tentative in the second and third
sets, so that’s something we’ll work on.”
The rest of the match pretty much went by
the book. Carlmont (5-1 Bay Division)
picked up the day’s first point at No. 3 dou-
bles, where Julia Mirande and Sydney Cho
cruised to a 6-0, 6-0 win.
Hillsdale got its first point at No. 3 sin-
gles, where Mariko Iinuma won 6-0, 6-0 as
The Scots’ second point came at No. 1 dou-
bles where Cassidy Sobey and Morgan
Watson won 6-1, 6-2. Michelle Guan and
Zoe Wildman completed the doubles sweep
for the Scots at No. 2, winning 6-1, 6-3.
Natalie Spievack gave the Knights their
second point with a 6-3, 6-1 win at No. 2
singles and No. 4 singles player Irene
Palisoc tied the team match at 3-all with her
6-1, 6-2 win.
That set up the dramatic finish at No. 1
Iinuma, who also serves as the Knights’
captain, knows her team walks a fine line,
having to depend on the four singles players
to sweep their opponents to give her team a
chance to win.
But considering all four are still undefeat-
ed in league play, Iinuma likes her team’s
“It’s sometimes stressful because if one of
the singles loses, we could lose the match,”
Iinuma said. “But I have a lot of confidence
in our singles.
“We knew Carlmont was a good team. …
But we’ve been undefeated so I really wanted
to win (Wednesday).”

handled the Indians and will now face their
division nemesis, the Red Sox, who went 12-
7 against Tampa Bay this season.
David Price set the tone for the Rays’ post-
season run by throwing a complete game to
beat Texas in the wild-card tiebreaker, and
Cobb picked up where his teammate left off.
After he was pulled in the seventh, Cobb
walked to the dugout where he was first greeted
with a high-five from Price.
There was a time when Cobb wasn’t even
sure he would pitch again this season.
On June 15, he suffered a concussion when
he was struck in the right ear by a line drive hit
by Kansas City’s Eric Hosmer. Cobb was side-
lined for 50 games and Tuesday he recalled
lying on his sofa and wondering if he would be
able to help the Rays contend for a playoff
He didn’t want a repeat of 2011, when he
couldn’t pitch in the playoffs after undergoing
surgery to remove a blood clot in his ribs.
But not only did Cobb go 5-1 after his scary
moment, the 25-year-old finished 11-3 in 22
starts and manager Joe Maddon didn’t hesitate
giving him the ball for the winner-take-all
wild-card game.
The Indians went from 94 losses a year ago
to 92 wins under first-year manager Terry
Francona and won their last 10 games to make
the postseason for the first time since 2007.
But it was one and done for Cleveland,
which didn’t capitalize on scoring opportuni-
ties. The first three hitters, Michael Bourn,
Swisher and Jason Kipnis, went a combined 0
for 12.
The road-tested Rays, who have traveled
3,627 miles since leaving home on Sept. 23,
took a 3-0 lead in the fourth on Desmond
Jennings’ two-run double.

For the most part, the term “fall bulbs” is
a bit of a misnomer, since the majority are
spring blooming. There are exceptions,
however — a few bloom in late summer and
early fall. If you like flowering bulbs, you
should consider planting some of these
lesser-known specimens in your garden.
The first of these is a bulb called
Colchicum autumnale and is sometimes
referred to as fall-blooming crocus, even
though it is a member the lily family.
Colchicums are a diverse group and are
found growing in a variety of ecosystems
from Western Europe to central Asia. These
lovely bulbs are best known to avid gar-
deners who plant them for late season
color. Colchicums bloom anywhere from
late August to early October in most gar-
These seldom planted bulbs can be found
in a range of colors from deep lilac to pure
white and shades in between. There are even
double forms such as the beautiful white
Colchicums pop up in the autumn garden
as if from nowhere, and their bright, vase-
shaped flowers add a welcome touch of color
at a time when it is needed most.
In the early spring, colchicum bulbs send
up clumps of broad, deep green, deer-proof
Noticeable in the early spring when other
plants are just emerging from winter dor-
mancy, the leaves last only a short time.
Almost as quickly as they emerge they are
overshadowed by the rapid growth in the
rest of the garden.
By mid-summer, the leaves have vanished
and the plants are forgotten. Several
months later, as the garden is winding down
for the season, colchicums send their
cheery flowers out of the ground — and
remind us why we love gardening so much.
Hardy in zones 4 through 9, colchicums
are best planted in full sun to partial shade.
They thrive in average garden soil, but dis-
like damp locations.
They tolerate hot, dry summers well and
are relatively free from pests. As is the case
with many bulbs, they do not like to be dis-
turbed once planted, so try to select a loca-
tion that you are not apt to dig up come
While colchicum is referred to as fall cro-
cus but is not in fact crocus, there is a fall
blooming crocus that actually IS a crocus.
Seldom planted by American gardeners
but often found in European gardens, Crocus
sativus, or saffron crocus, looks just like its
spring blooming cousins.
Visitors to your garden may shake their
heads in disbelief when they see small
lavender crocus blooming in your garden in
September or October.
However, if there are gourmet cooks in
the crowd, they may be very interested in
the bulb’s tiny flowers since the showy red
stigmas of Crocus sativus are used to make
culinary Saffron.
Grown for thousands of years for the
unique aroma of its colorful stigmas and
their ability to add a rich golden yellow
color to recipes, crocus sativus is as carefree
a bulb as its spring blooming cousins,
albeit with a more exotic background.
Crocus bulbs, whether spring or fall
blooming, prefer to grow in full sun and
well-drained soil. If the soil is too wet,
especially during their summer dormancy
period, the bulbs will rot.
If your fall garden needs a shot of unex-
pected color, consider planting a few fall
blooming bulbs this season. When they
bloom next fall you will be glad you did!
Fall blooming bulbs add unexpected color to garden
Crocus sativus, a fall-blooming bulb, is a stunning addition to a garden.

Phoebe Taylor’s 20-year-old suburban
Atlanta ranch house began plain and
“builder grade.”
Aprofessional decorator, she transformed
it with faux wood beams, decorative mold-
ing and a gold-spun paint job that looked
like “soft marble.” Her vision: “what our
dream house would have been if we had gone
out and bought it.”
It’s called “Going Faux” — turning homes
into something they basically are not
through prefab architectural embellish-
ments and eye-tricking wall finishes.
Enthusiasts say there’s no reason for even
the most budget-conscious among us to live
a cookie-cutter existence.
“My house was not an expensive house.
But even the million dollar houses don’t
have this kind of detail,” says Taylor,
adding that she recently sold the house in
just one day.
Other “faux” features to consider include
ceiling decals that look like parts of elabo-
rate chandeliers, cabinetry embellishments
and painted wainscoting.
“I have seen some trailer homes that have
more personality to them thanks to paint,
sweat equity, buying some lumber, and their
owners using their creativity,” says Lee
Gamble, a Steamboat Springs, Colo.-based
designer and painter who specializes in faux
Gamble says a homeowner can change
anything with desire and patience — even
ambitious projects like, say, making the
interior of a standard subdivision home
look like a cozy Tudor or classic Colonial,
or like something out of the rustic West.
The Internet is a DIY decorator’s best
friend, she says, offering inspiration and
sources for adding architectural and decora-
tive elements to a home.
Next is paint, which Gamble calls “the
cheapest way to improve your house” — and
it’s about more than just giving the walls
new color. Paint can be used to create illu-
sions of architectural elements: For exam-
ple, you can use blocks of color on walls to
create the look of molding, or three varia-
tions of one color for a three-dimensional
look — an old technique called trompe
l’oeil that can make your home look just a
little more like the Palace of Versailles.
Paint can make high ceilings look lower
— extend the ceiling’s color to a lower
point on the wall — or give them more
height by going dark. Using different col-
ors on the top and bottom halves of a wall
can create the look of wainscot, Gamble
Ornamental appliquis that adhere to any-
thing from cabinetry, walls, mantels and
molding to furniture and picture frames add
ready-made detail without breaking the
bank, she says.
The decorative appliquis, which can be
painted, stained or glazed, are particularly
helpful in transforming the look of kitchen
cabinets. “If they are in good shape and the
flow works for you, then there is no reason
to change them out,” Gamble says, adding
‘Going Faux’ can transform a home’s style

a commercial linkage fee in which devel-
opers of retail space pay into the commu-
ni t y.
Rankin also supported such a developer
fee and shared that, as an infant, she lived
in the now-burned Hallmark apartments.
“If it weren’t for affordable housing, I
wouldn’t be sitting here today,” she said.
She also joked that affordable housing
options will let her daughter return to
Redwood City after college but not move
back home.
The candidates were also like-minded in
their promotion of the city’s arts scene
and, separately, approval of the city’s col-
laboration with homeowners for sidewalk
maintenance and tree planting.
“Partnership is what it’s about,” Howard
Gee said some residents say that trees
should be a city responsibility but that
“the reality is that
Redwood City gets less
than 18 percent of prop-
erty taxes we pay. ”
Han said city staff are
stretched and, returning
to his priority of respon-
sible development, said
the city needs to consid-
er how developers are or
are not benefiting the
ci t y. For example, he
said, the Stanford in
Redwood City project
will bring in millions in
a development agree-
ment but “got a pass” on
its property tax.
Schmidt returned to the
idea of partnering as a
solution to the lack of
housing at every eco-
nomic level and for the elderly which he
named as the city’s biggest long-term chal-
The city needs to identify where they
want to partner before the developers come
calling, Gee said.
“If we make it too hard
to build here they’ll go
down the street ... and
then we end up with
nothing,” he said.
Gee also emphasized
the need to keep the city
financially sound to pro-
vide city services
because “without that
nothing happens.”
Seybert also listed a
balanced budget as his
number one priority
which he said he’s
accomplished for four
years on the council by
voting only for things
that do not call for
The budget was tops
for Howard, too, and she said partnerships
are the answer to meeting goals like
rebuilding aging facilities.
On the flip side, when it comes to cutting
if necessary and making ends meet,
Seybert said he would
work with labor groups
and pointed out that the
city instituted a two-tier
pension system two
years before the state did.
Howard doesn’t want to
make cuts even as the
state finds new ways to
take away money. She
prefers raising revenue.
“We can’t keep cutting
to the bone and keep ask-
ing the people of
Redwood City to keep
accepting it,” she said.
For less than $10,000,
Han said the city could
install wireless down-
town and corporations
and businesses pay for
advertising that could
then fund parking.

members and new attitude of wanting to

Medina said. “We need to do more and figure

dents feel safe and that there’s not a change

Crime is up in the city, Marty Medina
said, according to data from the Federal
Bureau of Investigation. This is of concern
for Marty Medina.
Ibarra said the data shows nine more rob-
beries, which amounted to a 17 percent
increase in crime, but is not substantial.
Things are on the upside, he said.
And Rico Medina said he knows police are
doing a good job.
Economic development
Candidates were hopeful about economic
development in San Bruno post-recession
and after losing redevelopment agency
funds from the state. The Transit Corridor
Plan was key to all of the candidates.
“We got redevelopment, we lost redevel-
opment,” Ibarra said. “You can’t say you’re
going to invite businesses to a city, unless
you give them a plan to develop, some
incentives, that’s the only way you’re
going to bring on economic development
and we’re in a position to do that.”
Marty Medina said the city has to encour-
age new businesses to start by delaying per-
mit fees.
Agrade separation project will help eco-
nomic development, Rico Medina said.
“We’re blessed at this time,” Rico Medina
said. “We are planning for the future and
have balanced the budget and are doing our
best to bring in new businesses.”
There are opportunities for small labora-
tories in the city and mild beautification

huge step in that direction by creating an
assessment system focused on improving
teaching and learning and by sending a clear
signal about our commitment to this urgent
The new tests are still under development,
so schools will be required to give them on a
practice basis in grades 3-8 and 11 this
spring, with students taking either the math
or language sections, but not both.
No individual student scores, school per-
formance reports or statewide results —
measurements that parents use to gauge their
children’s advancement and politicians and
business leaders use to compare schools —
would be generated from the rollout.
U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan
has criticized California for wanting to go a
year or more without report-
ing test scores and threatened
to withhold federal funds if it
made the switch. California
previously had planned only
to sample the new tests with
about 20 percent of its 3.3
million public school students this spring.
Torlakson still is planning to seek
Duncan’s permission to follow the accelerat-
ed timetable called for in the bill Brown
signed, and state officials have said they
might be willing to implement it even if it
costs the state federal dollars.
Supporters of doing away with the old
tests ahead of schedule say it does not make
sense for schools to give the old tests when
teachers already are gearing their lessons
toward Common Core, which calls for more
in-depth teaching of fewer subjects and
emphasizes real-world applications of mate-
rial in an effort to prepare students for col-
lege and careers.
“This is one of the most important and
revolutionary changes to education policy,
and California is the right state to lead the
way,” said Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla,
D-Concord, the bill’s author. “With this new
law, our schools can move away from outdat-
ed STAR tests and prepare students and teach-
ers for better assessments.”
California has been giving the STAR tests
to all students in grades 2-11. Under the plan
approved by Brown, only the science por-
tion of the test would be given to fifth-,
eighth- and 10th-graders next spring before
being dropped altogether a year later.
Bonilla’s bill was among 13 education
bills signed by the governor on Wednesday
that included a measure authorizing the state
Department of Education to develop tests
and materials for students who are learning
to speak English and matched to Common

When I really want to impress a vis-
itor to my garden, I offer a taste of
Fallgold raspberries.
Many raspberries taste good, espe-
cially when picked dead ripe and
popped into your mouth, but Fallgold
is perhaps the tenderest and sweetest
raspberry around. Here is a berry that
you’ll never see in a supermarket; it’s
too fragile to travel much further than
arm’s length.
Fallgold berries also have an unusu-
al appearance. Their pale yellow,
blushed orange color seems to speak
to their sweetness and tenderness, and
also probably helps hide the fruit from
As its name indicates, Fallgold
bears fruit in the fall. In this, it’s not
unique. There are a number of so-called
“fallbearing” raspberries. These vari-
eties begin their fall crop (it actually
begins in late summer) starting at the
tips of new canes, with fruit continu-
ing to ripen down the canes until
stopped by freezing temperatures.
Fallbearing raspberries are some-
times called everbearing raspberries,
although they actually bear only two
crops each season. The first, in mid-
summer, is borne lower on canes that
grew the previous season, the ones
that started bearing near their tips the
previous late summer and fall.
Knowing where and when these
raspberries fruit tells you how to
prune them. Easiest is just to cut the
whole planting to the ground early
each winter. This method sacrifices the
summer crop but avoids any problems
from winter cold or hungry deer. It
also cuts down on the chances of dis-
ease, not that raspberries are so
plagued by diseases.
However, it seems a shame to
choose that easier pruning route for
Fallgold. Why? Because if you let it
bear two crops a season, you’re forced
to suffer only a short hiatus — usually
only a couple of weeks — between the
end of the summer crop and the begin-
ning of the second crop. You get
berries from midsummer right into
Pruning for two crops is not all that
difficult. In winter or right after the
summer crop finishes, cut down to the
ground every cane that bore a summer
crop. You can recognize these canes
because they show their age with peel-
ing bark. In winter, go over the plant-
ing and cut to the ground enough
younger canes so that those that are
left are a few inches apart and grow in
a swathe no wider than 12 inches.
Selectively remove the thinnest ones.
With Fallgold grown for two crops
each season, there’s still usually no
need to worry about winter cold dam-
age on those canes that remain.
Despite its beauty, sweetness and ten-
derness, Fallgold is a tough plant.
Don’t fret too much about deer damage
either: Deer aren’t all that fond of
raspberry canes, and Fallgold will
compensate for any canes that are
eaten with a subsequent, larger late
summer and fall crop.
This offbeat raspberry’s worth growing
Despite its beauty, sweetness and tenderness, Fallgold is a
tough plant.

“It’s an immense project and a lot of
workers [on the theater] have asked if
they can bring their wives to the open
house,” she said. “People are proud of
their craftsmanship on the building
and that’s a clear indication of the
building’s quality. ”
The center preceding the newly con-
structed theater was built in 1953.
“Something that’s 60 years old
depletes during its life span,”
McManus said. “It was an opportunity
to replenish life into the center; it was
on time and on budget.”
With three main lighting catwalks, a
full technical ledge, lighting bars and
a computer controlled lighting panel,
the theater provides the lighting needs
for any venue including a soloist, full
orchestration, dramatic performance,
choir, lecture or speaking forum.
House lighting includes wall scones to
allow varied house lighting moods
depending on the event.
Suspended acoustical clouds and spe-
cially designed side and rear wall fin-
ishes ensure all seats have clear un-
reverberant sound. The stage and house
is equipped with wired and wireless
technologies for presentations includ-
ing large format video screen and
sound reinforcement.
“The acoustical system sounds like
[Louise M.] Davies Symphony Hall,”
McManus said.
The previous theater did not provide
wheelchair accessibility.
“It was in fact so poor that the entire
house was inaccessible,” said Mark
Quattrocchi, principal at Quattrocchi
Kwok Architects, the architects that
designed the project. “Now there is
access to all levels of the lobby and
seating, as well as the orchestra pit and
basement levels.”
The Collaborative for High
Performance Schools was used as
opposed to LEED. The equivalent
LEED rating would likely be Silver,
Quattrocchi said. The building is high-
ly energy efficient and includes day
lighting in the lobby to reduce demand
on artificial lighting and uses many
recycled and readily renewable materi-
als, Quattrocchi said.
“The role the theater offers is really
important for learning opportunities,”
he said. “It’s invaluable from a 21st
century learning perspective. Students
can learn about the technology side of
theater. Students can take an active
role in running a sophisticated the-
ater. ”
Matt Irwin, project manager at
Cahill Contractors, worked on the cen-
ter and noted that for a project of this
size and complexity, every aspect had
its challenges.
“There was a significant amount of
collaboration,” Irwin said. “It was a
monumental effort that makes it all the
more satisfying.”
An art class at San Mateo High
School competed to create the build-
ing’s banners. Additional touches
include an additional two floors to the
front area, bamboo along the side of
the building to screen the generators,
televisions and a concession stand on
the second floor.
The grand opening is 6:30 p.m. Oct.
3 at 600 N. Delaware St. in San Mateo
and will feature opening comments and
performances by San Mateo High
School students highlighting the new
theater’s technical capabilities.
Mills High School will also host an
open house for its new 48,800 square
foot gym and theater that seats 700
6:30 p.m.-8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16
at 400 Murchison Drive in Millbrae.
Hillsdale High School will also open a
new theater later this month.

The Planning Commission Tuesday
night declined to approve the project’s
environmental documents and asked
city staff to come back with alterna-
tives to the proposed above-ground
tank, pump station and pipelines. The
commission — and the numerous resi-
dents who spoke in opposition —
agreed the mitigated negative declara-
tion might be legally complete but
that it doesn’t adequately address what
neighbor Jay Parnes called the “human
“The report masks the true impact on
the neighborhood and residents,”
Parnes said.
The commission agreed the report
needed to dig deeper into aesthetics
and suggested that now that the city
has the money to replace the previous
tanks removed in 1999 it take the time
to do it right.
“I’m very concerned there could be
an opportunity for making this project
even better than the mechanical or
very functional needs of the city and
area which is water safety and all those
good things,” said Planning
Commissioner Randy Tabing.
City staff will now look at possibil-
ities like building the tank into the
hill or even fully underground. No spe-
cific date was set for the next review.
As proposed, the tank would sit at
the intersection of California Way and
Tom Suden Way. The design included a
berm to give the impression the tank
sits a little below grade, green paint to
blend into the hillside and a reduction
in size from 28 to 23 feet.
The proposed project would also
replace the existing pump station and
pipework and provide a new water
transmission line along Jefferson
Avenue to bring water from a lower
water reservoir at Lakeview Way.
City staff said the new facility will
improve water storage for firefighting
and emergencies and house an emer-
gency generator, both needs that
speakers Tuesday acknowledged.
“The residents are not in conflict
with the city in terms of the general
plan of enhancing fire response capac-
i t y. We disagree with the current plan
to build at grade level in an established

District trustees expressed their sup-
port for Mahoney.
“Chris has always been a vocal sup-
porter of the overall district’s vision
and push into 21st century learning,
and I suspect you’ll see him back in
public education very soon involved
with similar initiatives,” Trustee Seth
Rosenblatt wrote in a blog post. “I cer-
tainly wish him the best of health, and
good thoughts to the CLC community
as they work through the transition.”
It’s for the best at this point, said
Trustee Adam Rak.
“He’s definitely made a lot of posi-
tive changes for the school,” Rak said.
“He’ll be leaving a legacy of that.”
The 15-year-old San Carlos Charter
School Learning Center is a K-8 char-
ter school that emphasizes project
based learning and thematic units. It is
the oldest charter school in California
and one of the oldest operating charter
schools in the United States.
Mahoney began work with the

California law requires that contractors
taking jobs that total $500 or more (labor
or materials) be licensed by the Contrac-
tor’s State License Board. State law also
requires that contractors include their li-
cense number in their advertising. You
can check the status of your licensed
contractor at www.cslb.ca.gov or 800-
321-CSLB. Unlicensed contractors taking
jobs that total less than $500 must state
in their advertisements that they are not
licensed by the Contractors State Li-
cense Board.
