The San Carlos City Council is
demanding PG&E shut down an
84-year-old gas line that runs
through densely developed neigh-
borhoods, calling it a potential
public safety hazard that might
leave residents and visitors “sit-
ting on a San Bruno situation.”
The council gathered Friday
evening in a hastily called meet-
ing to declare a public health and
safety emergency and request
Pacific Gas and Electric shut down
Line 147 until the California
Public Utilities Commission has
determined it is safe to operate.
A resolution was adopted to
request the utility shut down the
line until it is investigated and
determined safe. Before the meet-
ing, the city obtained a temporary
injunction against PG&E in San
Mateo County Superior Court
signed by Judge George Marian
which requires PG&E to immedi-
ately shut off service to the line in
the city. Ahearing has been sched-
uled for Oct. 24 to hear both par-
ties, according to a city press
“The city fully expects PG&E to
comply with the court order to
shut down Line 147 as a sign that
they are concerned about public
safety and the pipeline issues
raised by the city,” the release
Councilman Mark Olbert said
prior to the meeting that as he
understood the situation, it is not
one of imminent threat and the
city is not trying to set off alarm
bells. However, Olbert said

Sheriff seeks money
to renovate Maguire
Correctional Facility
County pulls plug on efforts to fund new jail
By Michelle Durand
San Mateo County has given up efforts
to secure state funding for its new jail and
is instead asking for a little more than
$18 million to renovate the existing
facility to better accommodate mentally
ill inmates.
“We’ve shifted gears. We fought a good
fight but unfortunately we had opposi-
tion to our efforts to get special legislation,” said Sheriff
Greg Munks of the county’s prolonged attempts, along with
state Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, to receive up to $100
million for new jail construction.
The state most recently declined because San Mateo
County has already broken ground on the new Maple Street
Correctional Center on the former Chemical Way in
Redwood City.
The goal now is money to upgrade and improve the
Maguire Correctional Facility on Bradford Street across

The San Carlos Elementary School
District Board of Trustees and its staff will
undergo training as a result of the timing of
a money transfer for a $1.3 million home
loan given to the superintendent.
At a board meeting last week, the board
voted 3-2 to direct staff to work with county
counsel, in collaboration with the San
Mateo County Office of Education, to devel-
op training for staff and the board around
funding disbursements, financial controls
and communications and to include a
chronology of the events surrounding the
loan between June and September to use for
purposes of training.
The transfer of funds for Superintendent
Craig Baker’s loan, so he could move from
Redwood City to San Carlos, occurred one
day prior to the board tak-
ing formal action to
approve it. The escrow on
the San Carlos home
Baker purchased was
scheduled to close Sept.
13, but went through on
Sept. 11.
Trustee Adam Rak and
some other board mem-
bers wanted an audit of
the process, but it was clear there was not
majority of the board support to do so.
Trustees Seth Rosenblatt and Beth
Hunkapiller voted against the proposal.
“Beth and I had proposed the idea of an
independent review to understand the
errors,” Rak said. “We thought it was impor-
tant to move forward with training and
counsel offered this as an option, along
with getting a timeline of events to under-
stand what mistakes were made and estab-
lish best practices.”
Deputy County Counsel Kathryn Meola,
who represents San Carlos, said she will
meet with the board next week to discuss the
training on fiscal controls.
The one-year loan, that comes with a 2.65
percent interest rate, has $2,870.83 a
month payments. There is also a penalty of
4 percent of the monthly amount due if any
payment is made after the 15th of the month
in which it is due.
Baker previously said he needed the loan
to move into the district. Baker’s son goes
to Central Middle School and he wanted him
to be able to walk to school with his

SACRAMENTO — California officials
filed suit Friday against the U.S. Department
of Labor, arguing that the federal agency
cannot deny billions of dollars in mass
transit money to the state based on pension
reforms that lawmakers approved last year.
Gov. Jerry Brown’s office said in announc-
ing the lawsuit that the Democratic gover-
nor wants to defend a 2012 law requiring
state employees to contribute more to their
pensions to ensure the retirement system
remains viable.
Unions representing public transit work-
ers had objected to the new pension require-
ments, arguing that a decades-old federal law
prohibits such changes to their pensions
outside of the collective bargaining
process. Department of Labor officials ulti-
mately agreed and refused to certify that
California agencies were complying with
federal statute.
That blocked at least $1.6 billion in U.S.
Department of Transportation grants to
California. The funds began flowing again
when the state and federal governments
struck a temporary deal.
The state’s lawsuit, filed in U.S. District
Court, says the federal government’s posi-
tion will prevent future legislatures from
amending any law that affects the employ-
ment terms of transit workers.
“It will result in the loss of billions of
dollars in federal funding to California tran-
sit providers and constitutes an arbitrary,
capricious, and unconstitutional effort to
coerce California to alter a pension reform
law adopted for the benefit of California’s
citizens and public employees,” the lawsuit

Weekend • Oct. 5-6, 2013 THEDAILYJOURNAL
By Paul Larson
Have you ever
attended a funeral
or memorial service
and felt ill-at-ease,
uncomfortable or
awkward when
talking to the family
of the deceased? Have you ever stumbled
through your words and condolences
because you just didn’t know what to say or
how to say it? Have you even decided to not
approach the family for fear of saying the
wrong thing or making a fool of yourself? If
so you are not alone. Many people in this
situation want to provide some kind of
comfort to the immediate family, but just
don’t have the verbal tools to do so in an
assuring manner.
Learning “Funeral Etiquette” can be
useful. Using the right words at the right
time is an appropriate way to show that you
care, and in situations like this can be of
great help when provided correctly.
Standard condolences such as “I am sorry
for your loss” have become routine and
generic. A personalized phrase can be
welcomed such as “John touched many
lives” or “I will miss John”. DO NOT ask
the cause of death, offer advice or make
comments that would diminish the
importance of the loss such as “Oh, you’re
young and can marry again”.
Other ways to demonstrate your support
include: 1. Listening. The family may feel
the need to express their anxiety, and giving
them that opportunity can be therapeutic; 2.
An embrace. This can show that you care
without the need for words; 3. Offering your
services. This shows the family that you are
willing to give extra time for them: “Please
let me know if there is anything I can do to
help” (be prepared to act if needed).
Even if you don’t feel confident in
approaching the family there are other ways
to show that you care: 1. Attending the
funeral and signing the Memorial Book will
show the family that you took the time to be
there in support; 2. Dressing appropriately
for the funeral will demonstrate your efforts
to prepare for this special occasion (dark
colors are no longer a requisite for funerals,
but dressing in a coat, tie, dress or other
attire that you’d wear to any special event
are considered a way of showing you care);
3. In certain cases friends are invited to
stand up and offer BRIEF personal feelings.
Prior to the funeral write a few key notes
and reflections which will help you organize
your thoughts. Even if there is no
opportunity to speak before a group you
may have a chance to offer your thoughts to
the family following the ceremony; 4. A
personalized card or note will help you
arrange your words better and can be kept
by the family. If you don’t have their
mailing address you can send your envelope
to the funeral home and they will forward it
to the next of kin; 5. Providing flowers is a
long time tradition, or making a charitable
donation in the deceased’s memory will give
the family a strong sense of your regards; 6.
If appropriate a brief phone call can show
your immediate concern, but generally this
should be avoided to give the family the
privacy they may need.
If you ever wish to discuss cremation,
funeral matters or want to make pre-
planning arrangements please feel free to
call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF
THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650)
588-5116 and we will be happy to guide you
in a fair and helpful manner. For more info

Funeral Etiquette Advice:
Show Up, Be Brief, Listen

The oldest preschool in the
county is celebrating its 75th year
anniversary with an open house
Saturday after a flood closed the
school for eight months and
caused $250,000 in damage.
Millbrae Nursery School, a non-
profit co-op preschool, previous-
ly planned an anniversary celebra-
tion for this past spring, but the
event was rescheduled as the reno-
vation nears completion.
“I love that the kids are able to
develop a love of learning and are
encouraged to follow their curiosi-
ty in a play-based environment,”
said Kelly Lethin, a mother on the
board at the school. “The teachers
are very caring, and are genuinely
invested in the development of the
children, as well as the well-being
of the families at the school. It’s a
real whole-family environment.”
On a weekend this past January,
a pipe burst within the school-
house, flooding nearly every
room, damaging walls, flooring,
cabinetry and school materials.
As renovations began, Matt
Hodges, owner of Accel
Gymnastics and a parent at the
nursery, invited the school to set
up a temporary classroom in his
gym’s recreation room, and to use
the children’s gymnastics area for
active playtime. What began as a
two-week stay turned into an
eight-month relocation.
Nursery Director Brigidan
Bogni-Rodriguez expressed her
gratitude to Hodges.
“Because we were able to secure
such a perfect temporary facility,
we were able to transition the chil-
dren seamlessly, maintain our cur-
riculum and focus on the repairs to
the schoolhouse,” Bogni-
Rodriguez said in a statement. “We
are extraordinarily thankful to
Matt, and to the Accel family.
They have been so patient and
accommodating during our stay,
and they have shown true co-oper-
ative spirit as they shared their
facility with our families.”
Although Lethin said the school
has enjoyed and appreciated the
Accel space, she is looking for-
ward to having the school’s play
yard and kitchen back.
“We’ll get back to fresh air and
being able to play outdoor sports
and work on motor skills and have
the kitchen,” Lethin said. “It’s
been really challenging.”
While enrollment rates dropped
during the closure, the school will
be welcoming prospective fami-
lies at its open house with a tour of
the facility and a chance to meet
the staff and alumni. Enrollment is
open for the 2013-14 school year.
Lethin said there is much to like
about the school.
“I really love the diversity that
all the different families bring to
the school,” Lethin said. “It’s
been really special to our family. I
love how every family is able to
contribute something that is one
of their own strengths like music
and dance.”
All are welcome, though RSVPs
appreciated by calling 589-3028.
The event runs from 11 a.m.-3
p.m. at 86 Center St. in Millbrae.

By David Espo
WASHINGTON — Prospects for a swift
end to the 4-day-old partial government
shutdown all but vanished Friday as law-
makers squabbled into the weekend and
increasingly shifted their focus to a mid-
month deadline for averting a threatened
first-ever default.
“This isn’t some damn game,” said House
Speaker John Boehner, as the White House
and Democrats held to their position of
agreeing to negotiate only after the govern-
ment is reopened and the $16.7 trillion debt
limit raised.
House Republicans appeared to be shift-
ing their demands, de-emphasizing their
previous insistence on defunding the health
care overhaul in exchange for re-opening
the government. Instead, they ramped up
calls for cuts in federal benefit programs and
future deficits, items that Boehner has said
repeatedly will be part of any talks on debt
limit legislation.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-
Nev., also said the two issues were linked.
“We not only have a shutdown, but we have
the full faith and credit of our nation before
us in a week or ten days,” he said.
Reid and other Democrats blocked numer-
ous attempts by Sen. Ted Cruz to approve
House-passed bills reopening portions of
the government. The Texas Republican is a
chief architect of the “Defund Obamacare”
strategy and met earlier this week with
allies in the House and an aide to Majority
Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., to confer on strat-
In a lengthy back-and-forth with Reid and
other Democrats, Cruz blamed them and the
White House for the impasse and accused
them of a “my way or the highway” attitude.
But Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., likened the
Republican strategy to “smashing a piece of
crockery with a hammer, gluing two or three
bits back together today, a couple more
tomorrow, and two or three more the day
after that.”
For all the rhetoric, there was no evident
urgency about ending the partial shutdown
before the weekend.
The Republican-controlled House
approved legislation restoring funds for fed-
eral disaster relief on a vote of 247-164.
Another allowing the resumption of the
Women, Infants and Children nutrition pro-
gram was approved 244-164.
Saturday’s agenda called for passing a bill
to assure post-shutdown pay for an estimat-
ed 800,000 furloughed federal employees
off the job since mid-day Tuesday, then turn-
ing off the lights on the House floor until
Monday night to allow lawmakers to fly
home for two days.
After issuing a string of veto threats
against GOP spending bills, the White
House did not object to the one to assure pay
for furloughed employees.
There was no doubt about the political
underpinnings of the struggle. Democrats
and most Republicans have assumed the
GOP would be hurt by a shutdown, citing the
impact of the last episode, in 1996.
But Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said of
Democrats, “I don’t think they’ve poll test-
ed ‘we won’t negotiate. I think it’s awful for
them to say that over and over again.” His
words recorded on videotape, he said, “I
think if we keep saying we wanted to defund
it (the new health care law), we fought for
that and now we’re willing to compromise
on this we’re going to win this, I think.”
The shutdown caused the White House to
scrub a presidential trip to Asia, and the
Bureau of Labor Statistics delayed its cus-
tomary monthly report on joblessness as
impacts of the partial shutdown spread.
According to warnings by the administra-
tion and Wall Street, failure to raise the debt
limit, by contrast, had the potential to
destablize financial markets and inflict harm
on the economy quickly.
Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew has said that
unless Congress acts, the government will
be unable to pay all its debts and will run the
risk of default. He has urged lawmakers to
act by Oct. 17.
Debt limit bills typically pass first in the
House, then move to the Senate. So far, nei-
ther Boehner nor the rest of the leadership
has said when they expect to draft and have
a vote on one. More than a week ago, they
circulated a list of items that might be
included— calls for higher Medicare costs
for better-off seniors, a wholesale easing of
environmental regulations and approval of
the Keystone Pipeline among them.
Republican officials said that in a closed-
door session with the rank and file during
the day, the speaker renewed his long-stand-
ing commitment to seeking reforms and
savings from benefit programs to help
reduce federal deficits. They spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity, saying they were not
authorized to discuss a private meeting.
At the White House, Obama has said
repeatedly he will not negotiate over the
terms of debt limit legislation but is willing
to discuss a range of issues once the govern-
ment is reopened and the Treasury able to
borrow freely again.
The shutdown began Monday at midnight
after Republicans demanded the defunding of
the nation’s new health insurance system in
exchange for providing essential federal
funding, and the White House and
Democrats refused. Boehner and the House
followed up with several other measures to
reopen the government, all of them with
other health-care-related conditions
attached, and each subsequently rejected by
In a counter move, Democrats took steps
to force a vote by midmonth through a dis-
charge petition, a procedural maneuver that
only needs the signatures of a majority of
House members and no action by the GOP
Prospect for quick end
to shutdown is remote
U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, left, gestures as he addresses reporters during a news
conference with fellow House Republicans at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
White House supports
back pay for federal workers
WASHINGTON — The Obama administra-
tion says it supports House legislation to
give back pay to federal
workers furloughed dur-
ing the current partial
government shutdown.
The White House Office
of Management and
Budget issued a statement
commending Congress
for moving quickly on
the bill, which has bipar-
tisan support.
The White House has opposed other
piecemeal efforts by House Republicans to
restore money to some functions of govern-
ment during the partial shutdown. White
House officials have said the House should
reopen the entire government and not pick
agencies and programs over others.
The budget office statement says the back-
pay bill, quote, “will not address the serious
consequences of the funding lapse, nor will
a piecemeal approach to appropriations
Obama signs special
visa law for Iraqi war aides
WASHINGTON — The White House says
President Barack Obama has signed into law
a measure providing special visas for Iraqis
who risked their lives to help the United
The special visa has allowed more than
12,000 Iraqi contractors, interpreters and
others who aided U.S. efforts, and their fam-
ily members, to move to the U.S. since
2007. It expired earlier this week, with
about 2,000 applications still pending.
In a rare instance of bipartisanship, both
chambers of Congress passed the measure
within hours of each other this week.
Man sets himself on
fire on the National Mall
WASHINGTON — A man set himself on
fire on the National Mall in the nation’s
capital as passers-by rushed over to help
douse the flames, officials and witnesses
said Friday afternoon.
The reason for the self-immolation was
not immediately clear and the man’s identity
was not disclosed. But it occurred in public
view, on a central national gathering place,
in a city still rattled by a mass shooting last
month and a high-speed car chase outside the
U.S. Capitol on Thursday that ended with a
woman being shot dead by police. The man
remains in critical condition.

Harming the economy
In the letter to the editor
“Republicans at heart” (Sept. 28 edi-
tion of the Daily Journal), Mr. Aadahl
totally distorts economic theory with
his simplistic statement “Money
spent by the government ... circu-
lates in the economy, stimulates the
economy and pays back more per dol-
lar spent.”
He should have taken Economics
101, along with Ethics 101. The fol-
lowing is my example: I have an
extra $1,000 and want to help the
economy. My three choices are to
invest the money, spend the money
or make a gift to the IRS. If I invest
it, it will end up in a company as cap-
ital equipment, inventory or to hire
new employees. If I spend it on some-
thing I really need, it will, as with
government expenditures, stimulate
the economy. Where Mr. Aadahl errs
is that every dollar the government
spends has to come now or eventually
from taxes paid by the private sector.
So, any stimulation from government
spending reduces stimulation from the
private sector. So what is better for
the economy? Clearly government
investments under the Obama admin-
istration have not been stellar. The
Heritage Foundation lists 34 faltering
or bankrupt green energy investments
by Obama.
As for spending my $1,000, I
would carefully research and compare
the prices of any purchase. The gov-
ernment wouldn’t. The bottom line is
that every dollar the government
spends, while it may fulfill a valid
social purpose, harms the economy’s
long-term growth.
Philip Hage
Letter to the editor
By John Kelly
hese words — restorative jus-
tice — seem to pop up more
and more in various media
stories. Until eight years ago, I knew
little about it or particularly cared.
Then in one of my visits to San
Quentin State Prison, I was invited by
a friend inside to join a new group to
study the issue. Asheer blessing!
For the next few months, a group of
about 15 of us met weekly. The result
— a document of profound insight and
realistic application. The document
compares what we have employed
until now, criminal justice, with what
a system based on restorative justice
would look like. In criminal justice, a
crime is considered a violation of law
demanding that the state determine
degree of guilt and affix proper pun-
ishment, their only official responsi-
bility. In restorative justice, a crime
is a violation of people, their rela-
tionships and a disruption of the com-
munity’s good order. The focus is on
healing and restoring. The action
required is for the offender to under-
stand in depth what he has done and
take full responsibility; for the vic-
tim to have his or her needs — physi-
cal and emotional — addressed; and
for the community to uncover and
reform areas present that are con-
ducive to criminal activity.
This insightful document proceeds
to list six specific areas that need to
be addressed to fully implement a
restorative approach to justice. I will
merely list them, yet each one could
easily be a topic for full elaboration.
They are: 1). Prevention and alterna-
tives to incarceration; 2). Fully
addressing the needs of victims and
survivors of crime; 3). Needs of
offenders’ families and maintaining
family preservation; 4). Prisoner edu-
cation; 5). Preparation for release,
adequate programs for reintegration;
and 6). Needs of long-term prisoners
subject to review and decision by the
Board of Parole
Let me say that
all this wisdom
came basically
from the men at
San Quentin. Who
better to understand
the system and its
Let me say that the restorative jus-
tice movement is alive and well at San
Quentin. Every Thursday evening,
more than 100 residents meet with a
handful of outside folks. In groups of
10 or so, there is ongoing discussion
on personal responsibility, concern
for victims, what influence the men
inside can have on their outside com-
munities, especially the youth. Some
of the testimony I hear from these
men is moving, inspiring and at a
sharing level it would be hard to
match in the world at large.
Let me say that this group sponsors
at least two all-day Saturday seminars
every year where 50 to 60 outside
guests meet with the residents to pro-
mote these ideas inside and out. I have
never experienced anything more pro-
found than when on these days vic-
tims testify to their challenges to
heal, to forgive, even to reconcile
with offenders. Forgiveness is so, so
meaningful and powerful.
Let me say that what I have
described here would almost surely
not be possible in any of the 33 state
prisons except San Quentin. That is
because San Quentin, being located in
the heart of the Bay Area, has 3,000
volunteers a month promoting the
very things the document I described
above suggests — primarily educa-
tion and personal growth. No other
institution has the will or wherewith-
all to match this. Former governor
Arnold Schwarzenegger some time
back added the word rehabilitation to
the Department of Corrections title.
My facetious remark is that only
printers profited from this move
because they had to redo the sta-
tionery and business cards.
Expanding the impact the princi-
ples of restorative justice can exert,
more and more school districts and
programs dealing with youth are
employing them to address negative
behavior among young people. Just
consider how more and more the issue
of truancy is making news.
On another level, San Mateo
County is about to build a new jail. I
have had the opportunity to be a part
of a jail planning group making sure
the new facility has space to hold pro-
grams and promotes the kinds that
address the needs of those incarcerated
to become productive citizens. It is
interesting the state of California,
pushed to the wall by the federal
judges demanding a reduction of
inmate population and revision of the
health care system, is coming to the
realization at last that restorative jus-
tice might be the better way to go to
promote true justice.
As I write this, I am aware that there
are so many other dimensions I want
to share with you in this area that is
critical to all of us in some way, I
hope this is not the last of my shar-
ing with you. My hope is that at least
this much may tweak your interest in
issues that do affect us all.

ow will national security be affected if the debt

from the budget. More cuts are expected.
This reduces the capabilities needed to defend our interests
around the world. Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates
said we risked “hollowing out” our armed forces. They
already have readiness problems.
Afurther reduction will affect
their ability to deploy forces.
President Obama has stated we
have to protect our government’s
core commitments like food
stamps at the expense of reducing
national security spending.
U.S. Sen. John Kyl of Arizona
objected, saying there is no core
commitment that supersedes the
obligation to provide for the
common defense, the first busi-
ness of the federal government.
Additionally, according to USA
Today, the Department of Veterans Affairs states if the gov-
ernment shutdown continues into late October, the depart-
ment will run out of money for compensation and pension
checks to more than 3.6 million veterans who rely on that
money to support themselves.
This and other problems concerning the military have
caught the attention of an organization called Concerned
Veterans For America, of which I am a proud member.
Starting this month, CVAis taking our message of serv-
ice, freedom and action on the road and straight to the peo-
ple. It is setting out on a nationwide Defend Freedom Bus
Tour. For the next three weeks, it will travel across a dozen
states stopping at Las Vegas, San Diego, Oceanside and
Long Beach; Tucson and Phoenix, Ariz.; Albuquerque, N.M.;
Baton Rouge and New Orleans, La.; Pensacola, Tallahassee,
and Jacksonville, Fla.; Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio;
Frankfort, Ken.; Charleston, W.Va.; Chesterfield,
Martinsville, and Virginia Beach, Va.; Fayetteville,
Charlotte and Greensboro, N.C.; and Tallapoosa, Ga.
The tour will feature veterans, military families and patri-
otic Americans. Here are just a few of those that will join us
on the tour:

NEW YORK — Wall Street thinks
Washington’s gridlock could be easing.
Stocks posted modest gains Friday,
driven by budding optimism among
traders that Washington’s bickering
politicians can reach an agreement on
the budget and on increasing the gov-
ernment’s borrowing limit soon.
“Call it ‘modest optimism,”’ said
Frank Davis, director of sales and trad-
ing at LEK Securities.
The stock market rose for just the
third time in 12 days. The Dow Jones
industrial average closed up 76.10
points, or 0.5 percent, at 15,072.58.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose
11.84 points, or 0.7 percent, at
1,690.50 and the Nasdaq composite
index gained 33.41 points, or 0.9 per-
cent, at 3,807.75.
Traders aren’t expecting a miracle.
The rhetoric between Democrats and
Republicans remains as hot as ever. But
the pressure to end the shutdown and
raise the debt ceiling is climbing quick-
l y.
“The thought is that the Republicans
and Democrats will soon work this out
before Oct. 17,” Davis said, referring to
the date the Treasury Department said
the government’s borrowing authority
would be exhausted.
On Friday, House Speaker John
Boehner reemphasized that he won’t let
the U.S. government default on its
debts. There were also reports that
Boehner was looking to bring House
Republicans together to pass some sort
of budget compromise that would
include raising the debt ceiling.
Davis noted that it’s a positive sign
that investors are buying stocks head-
ing into a weekend, especially with
how volatile the political climate in
Washington has been.
Despite Friday’s gains, the trend for
the last three weeks in the stock market
has been lower. The Dow is down near-
ly 4 percent since hitting an all-time
high on Sept. 18.
While remote, the possibility of the
U.S. failing to pay its bills or creditors
remains a deep concern to investors.
“Credit markets could freeze, the
value of the dollar could plummet, U.S.
interest rates could skyrocket, the neg-
ative spillovers could reverberate
around the world, and there might be a
financial crisis and recession that could
echo the events of 2008 or worse,” the
Treasury Department said in a report
Investors went through a similar case
of political brinkmanship in August
2011, which ultimately led to Standard
& Poor’s downgrading the United
States’ credit rating. The S&P 500 fell
roughly 12 percent in the weeks that
Because of that precedent, the politi-
cal noise out of Washington has come
to dominate nearly all conversations
on Wall Street.
Under normal circumstances, traders
would have the government’s monthly
jobs report to parse through on the first
Friday of the month. But the shutdown
has forced the Labor Department to
postpone the release of September’s
data for at least the foreseeable future.
And few traders are talking about third
quarter corporate earnings reports
either, which start next week.
“The market is going to remain com-
pletely occupied by Washington until
this is resolved,” said Bob Doll, chief
equity strategist and portfolio manager
at Nuveen Asset Management, which
oversees $126 billion.
Despite these concerns, Doll and
other investors believe the possibility
that the U.S. government would will-
ingly default on its debt is remote.
“It’s hard to really say how this is
going to end, but I think it’s unthink-
able that it will end with a default of the
U.S. government,” said Steve Auth,
chief investment officer at Federated
Not all parts of the market were opti-
mistic Friday. Yields for the one-month
T-bill that mature around the time the
U.S. government is expected to hit its
borrowing limit have risen to their

LOS ANGELES — When mortgage
rates began climbing in May from
rock-bottom lows, Kevin Williams
worried he might miss out on an
So he listed his home in Orange
County and planned to buy a bigger
house in San Diego after it sold. The
process took all summer. Last week, he
and his wife locked in a mortgage.
The extra time added at least $1,000
more a year than if they had secured a
loan in May. Still, Williams believes
they made a prudent decision.
“I don’t know what rates are going to
be in four years,” he said. “I felt I had
to act now before I was priced out.”
Williams’ justification — buy now
or risk paying more later — is why
many brokers and analysts remain
confident that the housing recovery
can handle higher mortgage rates.
While the jump in rates should test the
strength of the recovery, analysts fore-
see stable sales increases over the next
year for a number of reasons.
Fall is typically a sleepy time for
sales and signed contracts have already
started to decline nationally. Yet sever-
al brokers say buyer traffic remains
strong in key markets like Los
Angeles, the Washington metro area,
Silicon Valley and Boston.
Home prices have been rising at the
fastest pace since 2006, helping
Americans regain wealth they lost dur-
ing the housing crisis. Many would-be
sellers have been waiting out the
downturn and could put their houses on
the market in the next year. That
should ease supply constraints, one of
the biggest obstacles for sales over
the past year.
Financing a home is still more
affordable than in decades past. The
average rate on a 30-year mortgage
remains a bargain at below 5 percent,
and many buyers sense it won’t stay
that low for long.
There’s also pent-up demand. A
growing number of people are moving
out from group homes or with relatives
to form their own households, accord-
ing to U.S. Census data. Sales typical-
ly increase when households grow.
“It’s the demographics that make a
strong housing recovery pretty much a
sure thing,” said Patrick Newport, a
housing economist at HIS Global
Newport expects sales will rise 10
percent this year to 5.14 million. After
that, he predicts an 8 percent gain next
year to roughly 5.55 million and a 4.5
percent rise in 2015 to 5.8 million.
All are relatively healthy levels.

SEATTLE — The CEO of electric car
company Tesla said Friday that a bat-
tery in a Model S that caught fire this
week was apparently impaled by a
metal object.
Elon Musk gave more detail in a
blog post about the fire that became an
Internet sensation and unsettled Tesla
investors. He also defended the car’s
battery technology.
Musk wrote in a blog post Friday
that fires are more common in conven-
tional gas-powered vehicles.
“For consumers concerned about fire
risk, there should be absolutely zero
doubt that it is safer to power a car with
a battery than a large tank of highly
flammable liquid,” Musk wrote.
The CEO said a curved metal object
on the road was apparently to blame
for the fire Tuesday. He says the large
object’s shape led to a powerful hit on
the underside of the vehicle, punching
a 3-inch hole through an armor plate
that protects the battery under the pas-
senger compartment.
The car properly contained the blaze
in one section of the battery, the com-
pany said. The driver was able to exit
the highway in the Seattle suburb of
Kent and get out of the vehicle before
flames engulfed the front of the sedan.
Of the estimated 194,000 vehicle
fires in the U.S. each year, the vast
majority are in cars and trucks with
gasoline or diesel engines.

Levi Strauss more than doubles 3Q net income
SAN FRANCISCO — Levi Strauss & Co. said Friday
that its fiscal third-quarter net income doubled on
improved sales and the absence of a major charge that
dragged down last year’s results.
The privately held clothing company, based in San
Francisco, reported net income of $57 million for the
three-month period that ended Aug. 25. That is up from
$28 million last year, when it took a hit from phasing
out its Denizen brand in China. The company booked a
$25 million customer support and inventory markdown
charge last year tied to the decision.
Levi’s quarterly revenue increased 4 percent to $1.14
billion, largely on the popularity of its namesake brand.
President and CEO Chip Bergh said that the company
achieved its gains by being “laser-focused” on making
innovative products, keeping the retail experience
engaging, talent and managing costs.
Levi’s did have slightly higher expenses during the
period due to new advertising campaigns and higher
incentive-based compensation after meeting certain
internal goals.

OAKLAND — Max Scherzer overpowered
Oakland with his dominant fastball, then
baffled the Athletics with his off-speed stuff.
Scherzer struck out 11 over seven domi-
nant innings, Miguel Cabrera helped stake
Detroit to an early lead before leaving in the
eighth, and the Tigers held on to beat the A’s
3-2 on Friday night in the opener of their
AL division series rematch.
The only guy who could get anything
going against Scherzer was Yoenis
Cespedes — and that wasn’t enough the way
the likely Cy Young Award winner was
“Today we noticed that my fastball seemed
pretty good and my changeup seemed pretty
good. That’s why I thought I was able to get
into a groove and pitch deep into the game
because of those two pitches,” Scherzer
said. “I thought I did a good job of attacking
the zone and throwing first-pitch strikes,
which I pride myself in.”
Cabrera, hindered by a groin strain late in
a season of injuries for last year’s Triple
Crown winner, didn’t have to overextend
himself on defense thanks to Scherzer’s
118-pitch gem. But he did look uncomfort-
able running out a grounder in the eighth.
“I think he tried to kick it in a little bit
and it looked like it bothered him,” manag-
er Jim Leyland said. “I wasn’t very comfort-
able taking him out of a one-run game, but
there was a little bit more to it.”
Cabrera and Alex Avila each hit first-
inning RBI singles against 40-year-old All-
Star Bartolo Colon, whose winless stretch
against the Tigers extended to 10 1/2 years.
Scherzer retired 16 of his first 18 batters
and was nearly untouchable before Cespedes
hit a two-run drive in the seventh for his
first career playoff home run. The strikeouts

About the only advantage the Woodside
football had going for it as it hosted Sacred
Heart Prep Friday night is the fact Wildcats
coach Josh Bowie was a former assistant
with the Gators before taking over the
Woodside job last season.
That gave him a bit of insight in how
Sacred Heart Prep likes to do things, espe-
cially offensively.
But it’s one thing to know what’s coming
and it’s another thing altogether to stop it.
The Wildcats did a good job of taking away
the Gators’ fly sweeps, but if a defense takes
one thing away, more than likely there is a
weakness and Sacred Heart Prep exploited
that on its way to a 42-2 win over the
“I thought Woodside had a good game
plan,” said SHP coach Pete Lavorato. “They
were taking away the sweep … no doubt
about it.”
With Woodside (0-4 overall) focusing on
the perimeter, Sacred Heart Prep (5-0) found
where the defense was soft — and that was
right up the middle. Half back Andrew Segre
was the main beneficiary as he gouged
Woodside on simple dives and off-tackle
runs to the tune of 156 yards rushing and two
touchdowns on 20 carries.
“[Woodside was] basically wide on both
sides (to take away the fly sweep). They were
vulnerable in the middle,” Lavorato said.
Segre was not limited to running the ball
either. He also caught three passes for 117
yards and two more scores. His two touch-
down receptions came on screen passes near
the sideline and without a defender in sight
and a convoy of blockers, he scored on
catches of 26 and 57 yards.
“[Woodside’s defense was] basically com-
mitted to the line of scrimmage,” Lavorato
said. “We knew we could run screen (plays).”
All told, Segre finished with 273 yards of
total offense — more than half of the Gators’
502 yards they accumulated for the game.
Gators dominate
SHP’s Andrew Segre, left, is escorted down the sideline by Alex Castro for a 26-yard
touchdown on a screen pass. It was the first of four touchdowns on the night for Segre, who
rushed for 156 yards and caught three passes for 117 more in a 42-2 win over Woodside.

ALAMEDA — Darren McFadden missed a
third straight day of practice because of a ham-
string injury, making it all but certain the
Oakland Raiders will be without their top run-
ning back for Sunday night’s game against
San Diego.
McFadden has been sidelined since getting
hurt early in the first half of Oakland’s 24-14
loss to the Washington Redskins last Sunday.
He is listed as doubtful on
the team’s injury report.
“He’s gotten closer, ”
coach Dennis Allen said
Friday. “If he can be effec-
tive he’ll be in there and
play. If he can’t be, then he
won’t be. It’s really pretty
Allen said that
McFadden’s status would
be a game-time decision.
McFadden, however, sounded less opti-
mistic when speaking to reporters, saying he
still feels pain just from walking.
“You can feel it a little bit. It’s tight, sore,”
McFadden said. “Hamstrings are one of those
things you want to be careful with. I’d rather
miss one or two games than to come back and
pop it and miss four or five.”
Given his history of injuries, it’s under-
standable why McFadden is leaning toward a
more cautious approach.
He has missed at least three games in each of
his five previous seasons in the NFL. Entering
this year, McFadden had played in only 19 of
the team’s previous 33 games.
“We’re going to take it day-to-day, ”
McFadden said. “If I come in here and run like
I need to (Saturday), then you’ll see me out
there Sunday.”
It was already a frustrating year for the for-
mer first-round draft pick even before his latest

BERKELEY — Jared Goff admitted his
confidence was a bit shaken when the
California freshman quarterback was
benched in the first quarter of last week’s
loss to No. 2 Oregon.
Goff, who began his college career by
becoming just the second player in school
history to throw for more than 400 yards in
back-to-back games, fumbled twice in the
rain and completed only 3 of 7 pass
attempts before Golden Bears coach Sonny
Dykes made the switch to redshirt freshman
Zach Kline.
The two quarterbacks split time with Cal’s
first-team offense in practice this week, but
Dykes said Goff will be back in the lineup
Saturday when the Bears (1-3, 0-1 Pac-12)
host Washington State (3-2, 1-1).
“It took me a day to get my confidence
back,” Goff said. “Sunday was a little rough
for me. But after that I was fine.”
Before his stumbles against the Ducks,
Goff had been the one bright spot in an oth-
erwise rocky start to Dykes’ first season at
Despite not playing the final three quar-
ters against Oregon, Goff is still seventh in
the nation in passing and is third in the Pac-
12 in completions per game.
Dykes has not ruled out using both quar-
terbacks against Washington State but said
he is satisfied with the way Goff responded
after getting benched.
“He had a good body of work thus far other
than the beginning of the Oregon game,”
Dykes aid. “I just wanted to see how he
responded. You never know with an 18-year-
old kid how he’s going to handle when
things don’t go his way. ”
Here are five things to watch when the
Bears host the Cougars:

Notre Dame-Belmont got the better of
Carlmont in the annual “Battle of Belmont”
match Friday night.
The Tigers pulled out a 25-22, 25-21, 25-
22 win led, once again, by their dynamic
duo of freshmen. Katie Smoot had a match-
high 16 kills, while teammate Tammy
Byrne was right behind her with 15 kills.
Ella McDonough led the Scots, finishing
with 10 kills.
The Menlo School team did not let a top-
20 state ranking derail it in a match against
Woodside Priory Thursday.
The Knights were ranked No. 20 in the
state this week by Cal-Hi Sports and they
lived up to the billing with an easy 25-9,
25-11, 25-17 victory.
Maddie Huber, once again, paced the
Knights’ attack, finishing with 10 kills and
five aces. Olivia Pellarin chipped in with
nine kills and four blocks, while Elisa
Merten dished out 22 assists and three aces.
Sacred Heart Prep also picked up a win,
beating Mercy-SF in straight sets, although
the Gators had to work a bit harder to record
a 25-22, 25-23, 25-13 decision.
Victoria Garrick had another big match for
the Gators, pounding out 15 kills and dig-
ging up 23 balls defensively. Mamie Caruso
added 17 digs and two aces, while Natalie
Marshall pumped out 36 assists and came up
with 13 digs.
Girls’ tennis
The Notre Dame-Belmont girls’tennis team
came this close to picking up its first win in
West Catholic Athletic League play Thursday.
Instead, it was Presentation that earned its
first league victory with a 4-3 decision over
the Tigers.
Alivia Horsley won 6-3, 6-0 at No. 1 sin-
gles for Notre Dame. The Tigers’ No. 3 sin-
gles player, Rebecca Zheng, also scored a
point with a 7-6, 6-3 win and the No. 1 dou-
bles team of Maddy Ching and Carly
Baumann picked up the Tigers’ third point
with a 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 win.
Notre Dame, however, could not find that
elusive fourth point.
Menlo-Atherton moved a game above .500
in the Peninsula Athletic League’s Bay
Division with a sweep of Half Moon Bay. The
Bears dropped only two sets in seven match-
es. Sami Andrew, M-A’s No. 1 singles player,
needed three sets to win her match, 6-2, 6-7,
Caroline Kelly, at No. 3 singles, also need-
ed three sets. She dropped the first set to Cali
Conklin 3-6, but rebounded to win the second
set in a tiebreaker. Kelly then held off
Conklin in a third-set, super-tiebreaker, 10-
Burlingame got back in the win column as
well Thursday, easily downing Sequoia, 7-0.
The Panthers are still without No. 1 singles
player Alex Harrigan, but she wasn’t missed
as Burlingame did not drop a set.
Natalie Somers filled in at No. 1 for the
Panthers and won 6-3, 6-0. The No. 3 doubles

SANTA CLARA — New blood is helping
the San Francisco 49ers’ defense play some
of its best football of the young season.
The Niners got some standout efforts from
reserves asked to take on expanded roles
during last week’s 35-11 rout of the St.
Louis Rams, a performance that vaulted San
Francisco to No. 4 in the NFL’s defensive
With All-Pro linebackers Patrick Willis
and Aldon Smith and nickel cornerback
Nnamdi Asomugha missing that game, the
49ers limited the Rams to 188 yards to end
a string of subpar outings to begin the sea-
son. San Francisco allowed an average of 28
points and 337 yards in
its first three games.
Middle linebacker
Michael Wilhoite, who
replaced Willis in the
heart of the defense, said
it was all about urgency
after San Francisco start-
ed the season 1-2.
“The whole thing is,
it’s not about who’s out
there,” Wilhoite said
Friday. “This organization produces good
players whether it’s the starting guy or the
backup guy. We approach the game hungry,
desperate, willing to do anything to win.
That’s how our mindset is now. We’re des-
perate to win. When you’re willing to do
anything to get the job done, you’re going
to get it done.”
Wilhoite, who had five tackles against the
Rams in his first NFL start, wasn’t the only
backup getting the job done.
Dan Skuta and rookie Corey Lemonier
combined to do a fine job replacing Smith’s
pass-rushing presence on the edge, and
Tramaine Brock made some key plays in
pass coverage in place of Asomugha.
With Willis and Asomugha still question-
able to return this week, and Smith still out
indefinitely, the 49ers (2-2) will be asking
their supporting cast to step up again
Sunday when they host the Houston Texans
(2-2) and the league’s fifth-ranked offense.
Stepping up hasn’t been a problem for
these guys.
“Guys just come in,” said Lemonier, San
Francisco’s third-round draft pick this year.
“There’s no void to fill. It’s just the prepara-
tion we have. You go out and do your job
when your name is called.”
Lemonier contributed a career-high three
tackles and also provided good pressure
from the edge as the 49ers harassed St.
Louis quarterback Sam Bradford with a sea-
son-high five sacks. Lemonier also dis-
played the ability to drop into coverage and
batted away one of Bradford’s passes.
Skuta got the starting assignment in
place of Smith, who led the NFC with 3.5
sacks after two games but left the team Sept.
23 to deal with personal issues. Skuta
shared snaps with Lemonier and, like
Wilhoite, continued to perform his regular
duties on special teams. Wilhoite and Skuta
combined for three special teams tackles
against the Rams.

Reds fire manager Dusty Baker after playoff loss
CINCINNATI — The Reds have fired manager Dusty Baker,
who led them to their best stretch of success since the Big Red
Machine but couldn’t get them past the first
round of the playoffs.
The move came three days after the Reds
lost the wild-card playoff in Pittsburgh 6-2
on Tuesday night, ending the season with
their sixth straight loss.
Baker had one year left on his contract.
He took over a rebuilding team in 2008
and led it to three 90-win seasons and play-
off appearances in the last four years, their
best run since Sparky Anderson managed
the Big Red Machine to two World Series
titles in the 1970s.
Cincinnati couldn’t get past the opening round of the play-
offs, however, building pressure for change.
Pujols sues Jack Clark over steroid comments
ST. LOUIS — Baseball star Albert Pujols is suing former
Cardinals slugger Jack Clark for saying on his radio show that
Pujols used steroids.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch
( ) reports that the
lawsuit filed Friday in St. Louis County
seeks unspecified damages and asks for a
declaration that Clark’s statements are
Clark said during his show on WGNU on
Aug. 2 that he knew “for a fact” that Pujols
used steroids and performance enhancing
drugs. Clark and co-host Kevin Slaten were
fired soon afterward.
The lawsuit says Clark’s comments are lies that have dam-
aged Pujols’ reputation, causing him humiliation, mental
anguish and anxiety.
Clark’s attorney, Chet Pleban, says Clark will welcome a
jury trial. Pujols now plays for the Los Angeles Angels after 11
years in St. Louis.
MLB: Rodriguez suit violates league drug program
NEW YORK — Major League Baseball calls Alex
Rodriguez’s lawsuit against the sport a “clear violation” of
the confidentiality provisions of the league’s drug program.
The New York Yankees third baseman sued MLB and base-
ball Commissioner Bud Selig on Thursday in state court in
Manhattan, accusing them of a “witch hunt” to smear his
reputation and cost him tens of millions of dollars.
In a statement Friday, MLB denied the allegations and
called the lawsuit a “desperate attempt” to go around confi-
dentiality rules of the league’s drug agreement with the
players’ union.
In a statement of his own, Rodriguez said his legal team
is doing what is necessary to vindicate him.

DUBLIN, Ohio — Another rain delay cut short some
exceptional golf Friday in the Presidents Cup.
Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley shot 30 on the front
nine at Muirfield Village, an astounding performance in four-
somes. Only some sloppy play allowed the match to go 15
holes in a 4-and-3 win over Jason Day and Graham DeLaet.
Right behind them, Brendon de Jonge began to emerge as
a star of the International team. He teamed with Ernie Els and
they never trailed in a 4-and-3 win over Hunter Mahan and
Bill Hass, going 8 under when the match ended at the 15th.
The Americans had a 4 1/2-3 1/2 lead, though four match-
es were still in progress when darkness descended on
Muirfield Village.
For the second straight day, storms interrupted play and
left a bleak outlook for finishing Sunday. Heavy rain — and
the time it took to get small pools of water out of the
bunkers and fairways — led to a delay of nearly three hours.
The other four matches — the Americans were up in two,
the International led the other two — were to resume
Saturday morning.
Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar were 6 under through eight
holes and still only had a 1-up lead over Louis Oosthuizen
and Charl Schwartzel. Oosthuizen missed a short par putt on
the ninth to lose another hole, and the former British Open
champion made an even greater blunder on the par-3 12th.
After Woods went long of the green, Oosthuizen’s 7-iron
leaked to the right and hopped into the water. The Americans
won with a bogey and were 3 up with six holes to play when
they stopped.
Steve Stricker and 20-year-old Jordan Spieth finally seized
control of their match when Spieth made a 15-foot birdie
putt on the par-3 eighth, and the Texan made another key
birdie on the 12th. They were 3 up with four holes remain-
What looked to be the decisive match of the foursomes
session was Angel Cabrera and Marc Leishman, who over-
came an early deficit and were 1 up with five holes remaining
against Webb Simpson and Brandt Snedeker. The
International team had control of the other match. Hideki
Matsuyama and Adam Scott lost only one hole and were 4 up
with seven holes remaining against Zach Johnson and
Jason Dufner.
Saturday is the busiest day for the Presidents Cup, with five
fourballs matches early and five foursomes matches late. It
concludes with 12 singles matches Sunday, though the fore-
cast is not any better, especially for Sunday.
One thing was becoming clear through the relentless
appearance of clouds — the course Jack Nicklaus built has
been groomed for birdies.
Nicklaus stood at the back of the press center peering at
the scoreboard, and he couldn’t believe the scores he saw
from both sides. “They say this golf course is tough,”
Nicklaus said, although he knows better. The greens are
among the most pure on the PGA Tour, and they are soft
because of the rain. In match play, with 24 of the best play-
ers from every continent except Europe, Muirfield Village
doesn’t stand much of a chance.
Rain suspends Presidents Cup
By Greg Beacham
LOS ANGELES — After Miguel Cotto lost both of his
fights last year, the three-division champion took several
months off to choose between reinvention and retirement.
Cotto eventually chose to keep fighting. And like many
determined men over the centuries, he headed west.
Almost every day for the past two months, Cotto showed
up at 5 a.m. at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood for
three hours of strength and conditioning work. He returned
from his rented house every afternoon for two hours of train-
ing with Freddie Roach, rebuilding his game and rekindling
his fire.
“I still have that passion, that same kind of feeling,”
Cotto said. “We are committed to doing so good, and to look
amazing at the fight. We are working together to get the best
out of me.”
Southern California is an odd place to find the best Puerto
Rican fighter in recent boxing history. Cotto has trained on
his home island and in Florida in recent years, and he has a
passionate fan base in New York, where he has sold more
tickets at Madison Square Garden than any fighter in this
But the 32-year-old Cotto (37-4, 30 KOs) decided he could-
n’t stick to his usual haunts when facing the final years of his
career. He needed distance from everyday concerns — and he
needed Roach, the sport’s most respected trainer.
“I figured if he’s willing to move to train, he really means
business,” Roach said. “I told him he’ll have to work every
day, do whatever we decide he needs to do every day, and he’s
more than lived up to everything we put in front of him.”
Cotto wasn’t alone at the Wild Card during one of his final
workouts before traveling to Orlando, Fla., for his 154-
pound bout on HBO at the Amway Center on Saturday against
Delvin Rodriguez (28-6-3, 16 KOs), a Dominican-born con-
tender fighting out of Connecticut.
Cotto’s wife, Melissa, watched the session in her own
workout clothes while two of their children lounged on the
floor by the heavy bag, engrossed in their phones. His
mother, Juana, has been in Los Angeles for much of camp,
making sure Cotto can concentrate on Roach’s training with
minimal real-life distractions.
Cotto had lost just twice in his career before dropping
both his 2012 fights, losing to Floyd Mayweather Jr. and
Austin Trout. There was no shame in the first defeat, since he
provided the stiffest recent test in Mayweather’s career, but
his inert performance against Trout had many wondering
whether Cotto was cooked.
After the loss to Trout, Cotto split with Pedro Diaz — the
latest in a long recent line of trainers unable to stick with the
mercurial champion. Cotto won’t say why he dropped Diaz,
but he subsequently called Roach, who trained Manny
Pacquiao to beat Cotto in November 2009 in a victory that
still stands as arguably the most impressive in Pacquiao’s
remarkable career.
Cotto turns to Roach to reinvigorate career

Segre, in fact, had more yards by himself than
the Woodside offense did as a team as the Gators’
defense held the Wildcats to just 182 yards of
offense and came up with three turnovers.
Woodside had almost as many yards (168) on
kickoff returns as it did from the line of scrim-
The Gators’defense was so good, it accounted
for the Wildcats’ only points. Woodside was
driving deep inside the Gators’ end when
Wildcats quarterback Robert Wang hit Mitchell
Cockrum with a pass down to the 2-yard line. He
turned, took a step and was blasted by defensive
back J.R. Hardy, who popped the ball loose.
Riley Tinsley picked it and tried to run, going
into the end zone as he did so, only to be tack-
led for a safety.
The Woodside defense started the game fired
up and forced a Sacred Heart Prep punt from near
midfield on the Gators’ first possession of the
game. It forced another punt on the Gators’third
drive but those were the only two punts of the
game for Sacred Heart Prep.
The Woodside offense, however, could not
muster much and could not sustain anything.
So while the Wildcats were down only 7-0
after the first quarter, they ran only eight
plays in the opening 12 minutes, compared
to 17 for the Gators.
After exchanging punts to open the game,
Sacred Heart Prep hit paydirt on a Cole
March-to-Segre screen pass that went 26
yards for a 7-0 lead.
The teams exchanged punts again and on the
final play of the first quarter, Wang was belted as
he threw the ball and SHP’s Andrew Robinson
picked off the pass to give the Gators the ball at
the Woodside 31.
On the first play of the second quarter, Mason
Randall found tight end Andrew Daschbach
down the seam for a 31-yard scoring strike and a
13-0 lead.
Two drives later, the Gators put together their
best possession of the night, driving 72 yards
on 16 plays with Ricky Grau capping the drive
with a 1-yard run. A2-point conversion gave
the Gators’ a 21-0 lead at halftime.
In the second half, it was more of the same.
SHPscored on its first drive of the third quarter,
a 2-yard touchdown run from Segre, who then
went 57 yards for a score on a screen pass on the
Gators’ next possession. Following the safety,
Segre capped his night with a 35-yard scoring
Wang struggled all night with SHP’s defen-
sive pressure. He connected on just 10 of 29
passes for 151 yards. Josh Holman was his
favorite target, who finished with five catches
for 77 yards.
Holman was equally dangerous on kickoff
returns, bringing one back 57 yards to the SHP
28 late in the game.
The game was delayed about 45 minutes with
five minutes left in the second quarter following
an injury to SHP lineman Mike Murphy, who
was taken to a local hospital with what was
reported as a broken leg.
“It was a weird game,” Lavorato said. “That
injury threw me for a loop. It was really hard (to
get back into the game).”
Continued from page 1
were his most in seven postseason starts.
Cespedes struck out in the ninth against
closer Joaquin Benoit, who retired the final
four batters for the save.
Leyland chose Scherzer over Justin
Verlander, who goes in Game 2 on Saturday
night against 23-year-old rookie Sonny
Gray in just his 11th career start. Verlander
beat the A’s in Games 1 and 5 of their post-
season series last October.
“I don’t get caught up in the hoopla,
where I’m pitching,” Scherzer said.
The A’s missed early chances in a rematch
of last year’s playoff matchup that Detroit
survived on its way to the World Series —
and there was little the raucous, yellow
towel-waving sellout home crowd of 48,401
could do until Cespedes finally energized the
Scherzer received an American League-
best 6.80 runs of support per nine innings
over his 32 starts this season, but he didn’t
need anything more than those three first-
inning runs in shutting down the AL West
The majors’ lone 20-game winner,
Scherzer (21-3) allowed three hits and
walked two.
“He’s always tough, he won 21 games,”
A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “Scherzer’s a
strikeout guy, he’s a swing-and-miss guy. ”
Scherzer issued a two-out walk to Coco
Crisp in the third, and then retired his next
eight batters in order before Crisp drew a
full-count free pass in the sixth. Scherzer
struck out the side in the fourth and recorded
two more Ks in the fifth.
Oakland had the tying run aboard in the
eighth but Josh Donaldson popped out
against Benoit.
“Scherzer was terrific and the bullpen
came in and did a fine job,” Leyland said.
“He was awfully determined. I think he was
thrilled to get Game 1.”
Omar Infante added a pair of singles for a
Tigers team determined to take this postsea-
son run one step further after being swept
by the San Francisco Giants in the 2012
World Series.
Detroit nearly added a run in the sixth but
Gold Glove right fielder Josh Reddick threw
out Victor Martinez at the plate.
Colon put himself in a hole from the start,
surrendering Austin Jackson’s double to lead
off the game and then hitting Torii Hunter
with a pitch. Cabrera singled up the middle
for the first run, and then Prince Fielder
grounded into a double play to bring home
another. Avila added an RBI single.
Cespedes hit a one-out triple over Andy
Dirks’ head in the second but Oakland was
unable to drive him in.
Leyland went with Dirks in left over
Jhonny Peralta, who made the playoff roster
a week after completing a 50-game suspen-
sion for ties to the Biogenesis lab accused
of distributing performance-enhancing
drugs. Peralta lined out as a pinch hitter in
the ninth.
Colon had hoped for a triumphant return
to the playoff stage eight years after his last
appearance with the Angels.
The right-hander’s 10 hits allowed were
his most in 10 career postseason starts.
Colon, who wasn’t part of the A’s playoffs
last season while serving a 50-game sus-
pension for a positive testosterone test,
won 18 games this season but couldn’t
break out of his decade-long funk against
the Tigers.
The burly right-hander is winless —
going 0 and 8 — in 14 starts against the
Tigers since a victory on April 13, 2003.
Cespedes was back in left field after miss-
ing the final two regular-season games at
Seattle with a right shoulder injury.

BOSTON — One ball fell between two out-
fielders. Another took a bad hop off the Green
Monster standings. One batter reached safely
on a dropped third strike and another when the
pitcher was slow to cover first.
By the time it was over, the Boston Red Sox
had scored five runs in the fourth inning, taking
advantage of Tampa Bay’s bad luck and bad
defense to beat the Rays 12-2 on Friday in
Game 1 of the ALdivision series.
Every Boston starter got a hit and scored a
run. The Red Sox tweeted that it was the first
time a team had done that in the postseason
since 1936 — Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio and
the Yankees did it in the World Series.
Needing a 163rd game to earn a wild-card
berth, the Rays took three win-or-go home
matchups in three different cities to reach this
series. Now they need a victory in Game 2 on
Saturday to tie the series before the teams shift
to St. Petersburg, Fla., for Games 3 and 4.
Jon Lester allowed three hits in 7 2-3 innings
for the ALEast champions, giving up a pair of
solo homers over the Monster by Sean
Rodriguez and Ben Zobrist to spot the Rays a 2-
0 lead through the top of the fourth. Tampa Bay
starter Matt Moore had still not given up a hit.
But Dustin Pedroia led off the bottom half
with a single up the middle, and then David
Ortiz hit a high fly ball that center fielder
Desmond Jennings and rookie right fielder Wil
Myers converged on. Myers raised his left hand
to call off Jennings but let it fall behind him,
bouncing off the warning track a few feet in
front of the fence and into the bullpen for a dou-
With a derisive cheer of “Myers” echoing
through the ballpark, Mike Napoli popped up
to second base for the first out before Jonny
Gomes hit a fly ball that scraped the left-field
wall on the way down. Pedroia held to tag up,
then scored easily with Ortiz coming in just a
few steps behind him to make it 2-2.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia struck out before
Stephen Drew hit a slow hopper to first that
James Loney fielded and flicked to Moore. But
the pitcher’s foot came down a split second
after Drew’s and, with Moore facing the wrong
way, Gomes never slowed down as he rounded
third and scored without a throw.
Will Middlebrooks followed with a line drive
to left that took a bad hop off the ALEast stand-
ings and got past on the rebound. That allowed
Drew to score and make it 4-2, while
Middlebrooks went into second with a double.
Jacoby Ellsbury reached on a passed ball on
strike three — which would have been the third
out of the inning — and Middlebrooks moved
to third, where he scored on Shane Victorino’s
single to make it 5-2.
None of the misplays was scored an error.

American Biles wins
gymnastics all-around at worlds
ANTWERP, Belgium — Simone Biles made
everyone forget the United States came to the
world championships without the defending
and Olympic champions, edging teammate
Kyla Ross to win the all-around gold medal on
Biles and Ross were close throughout the
evening, with Ross matching Biles’ athleti-
cism and power with grace and elegance, leav-
ing it to the final floor exercise.
The 16-year-old Biles jumped, twisted and
strutted, and it turned into a victory dance in
front of the many thousands clapping to her
music at the Sports Palace.
“On floor, I just have a lot of fun,” Biles said.
“That is the main key.”
Aliya Mustafina of Russia, the 2010 champi-
on, took bronze.
Biles also qualified for all four apparatus finals
this weekend — the first female U.S. gymnast
to do so since Shannon Miller in 1991.
Defending champion Jordyn Wieber and
Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas skipped
the event. Wieber is a student at UCLA and
Douglas has not been training much since the
London Olympics.
Ross, also 16, led by 0.016 points going
into the floor routine, but Biles turned up her
performance to win. Biles scored 60.216
points, while Ross ended with 59.332 and
Mustafina had 58.856.

Old friends, new rivalry
Dykes and Washington State coach Mike
Leach have a long history together dating
back to 1997 when both were assistant
coaches at Kentucky. Dykes was also the
receivers coach and co-offensive coordina-
tor at Texas Tech from 2000-06 when Leach
was the head coach of the Red Raiders. The
two remain close friends and Dykes credits
Leach with teaching him the nuances of the
‘Air Raid’ offense Cal currently uses. The
most important lesson Leach taught him,
however, was about treating players. “Mike
doesn’t put on airs and I’ve always respect-
ed that,” Dykes said. “The biggest thing
(was) just teaching me about being authen-
tic. Players can see through bull and there’s
no bull with him.”
The streak
The Bears have won eight straight in the
series between the two conference rivals,
matching an eight-game streak they had
against the Cougars from 1920-29. Cal last
lost to Washington State in 2002 — when
Goff was 7 years old. Leach, however, got
the edge on Cal in 2004 when Texas Tech
beat the then-fourth-ranked Bears in the
Holiday Bowl.
Going sack-less
Part of Cal’s problems defensively have
come from a lack of a pass rush. The Bears
had just one sack in the back-to-back
blowout losses to Oregon and Ohio State,
and have just four total all season. That
could change this week against Washington
State, even though the Cougars have
allowed just nine sacks in five games. Three
of Cal’s first four opponents have featured
running quarterbacks, but Washington State
QB Connor Halliday is more of a traditional
drop-back passer.
Air raid defense?
As much success as the Cougars have had
throwing the ball this season, they’ve been
equally impressive in defending the pass.
Twice this season — against Auburn and
USC — Washington State has allowed fewer
than 100 yards in the air. Overall, the
Cougars are giving up just 159 yards pass-
ing per game. Cal quarterbacks, on the other
hand, are averaging 373 yards.
Kicker vs. kicker
The game features two of the Pac-12’s top
kickers in Cal’s Vincenzo D’Amato and
Washington State’s Andrew Furney.
D’Amato, who has made nine of 10 field
goal attempts this season, leads the confer-
ence and is third nationally in field goals
made, including a season-high 46-yarder in
the rain against Oregon last week. Furney
has made five of six tries and hit the game-
winner in Washington State’s 10-7 win over
USC earlier this season. Furney is also sec-
ond on the Cougars career list for field goal

Although he leads the Raiders with 215 yards rushing,
more than half of them came on four carries against lowly
Jacksonville on Sept. 15. On his other 49 attempts,
McFadden is averaging 2.2 yards a carry, which would be the
lowest mark of his career.
That’s not exactly the type of impact McFadden had hoped
for in the final year of his contract with Oakland.
“I can’t even describe it and put it into words,” McFadden
said. “It’s very tough. You want to be out there fighting with
the guys. It’s just a hard thing you have to deal with.”
Rashad Jennings, who filled in when McFadden got hurt
against Washington, will start if McFadden is out.
Oakland might also be without center Stefen Wisniewski.
Wisniewski also missed a third consecutive practice due to a
right knee sprain and is doubtful. Right tackle Tony Pashos
was also downgraded to doubtful with a groin injury.
If neither can play, the Raiders’ already thin offensive line
will be stretched even more. It’s possible, if not likely, that
the team will promote Jack Cornell from the practice squad
to help the depth.
Notes: DE Jason Hunter (quad), CB Tracy Porter (ribs), SS
Charles Woodson (non-injury) and QB Terrelle Pryor (con-
cussion) are all probable. ... DTStacy McGee (shoulder), LG
Lucas Nix (ankle), FB Marcel Reece (knee) and OT Menelik
Watson (knee) are questionable.

ST. LOUIS — Gerrit Cole and the Pittsburgh Pirates
played a game of role reversal, and pulled even with the St.
Louis Cardinals.
The hard-throwing rookie gave up two hits in six domi-
nant innings and also had an RBI in his postseason debut,
Pedro Alvarez homered for the second straight day and the
Pirates beat the Cardinals 7-1 Friday to even their NL divi-
sion series at one game apiece.
“Just what we’ve been seeing all year,” Pirates manager
Clint Hurdle said. “You saw a focused man that was ready to
Aday after St. Louis got a strong effort from its starter and
took advantage of mistakes to romp 9-1 in the opener, the
Pirates showed poise for their first playoff win since 1992
while the Cardinals looked tentative in the field.
The Pirates now head home for Game 3 Sunday in the best-
of-five series. Wild-card game winner Francisco Liriano
faces Cardinals right-hander Joe Kelly.
Cole faced the Cardinals for the first time and left most of
them shaking their heads, striking out five and walking
one. After allowing Carlos Beltran’s double with one out in
the first, the 22-year-old retired 11 straight before Yadier
Molina led off the fifth with his third career postseason
Relying on a fastball that peaked at 99 mph on the stadi-
um radar gun and one that TBS had at 100, Cole had hitters
helpless at times even without shadows that benefited
pitchers early in Game 1.
“I just trusted myself and tried to keep it as simple as I
could,” Cole said. “You just try and clear you mind after
every pitch and just look forward.”
When he got in the least bit of trouble, Cole ignored
chants from a second straight sellout crowd at Busch
“You just have to take a deep breath,” Cole said. “Rip off
the rear-view mirror on the car. ”
Cardinals starter Lance Lynn needed some help. He hasn’t
lasted long enough to qualify for the victory in any of his
three career postseason starts and yielded five runs and
seven hits in 4 1-3 innings.
“It was a bad game,” Lynn said. “I made four bad pitches
for four extra-base hits. When I made a mistake with the
fastball, they were ready for it.”
Lynn was manager Matheny’s choice for Game 2 ahead of
rookies Shelby Miller and Michael Wacha, the decision
based on the right-hander’s strong September and 9-3
record at home.
Wacha (4-1, 2.78) will oppose Charlie Morton (7-4,
3.26) in Game 4 Monday.
Pittsburgh evens series
Pirates 7, Cardinals 1

ATLANTA — Flashing plenty of fire and some nifty
defense, the Atlanta Braves recaptured their Turner Field swag-
Now, they’re headed to Dodger Stadium with the NLdivision
series all tied up.
Mike Minor pitched six strong innings in his first postsea-
son start, Jason Heyward had a two-run single and Atlanta
made one slick play after another in the field, holding off Los
Angeles 4-3 on Friday night to even the best-of-five series at
one game apiece.
Just what the Braves needed after an ugly 6-1 loss in the
opener — their first postseason win at the Ted since the 2005
NLDS, snapping a streak of four straight defeats at a park
where they had the best home record in the majors during the
regular season.
“We definitely didn’t want to lose two games in front of our
home crowd,” Chris Johnson said.
In a postseason already marked by defensive miscues all
over the place, the Braves’ defense came through by turning
three double plays — none more crucial than the one reliever
Luis Avilan started in the seventh to escape the inning with a
2-1 lead intact.
Gerald Laird and Andrelton Simmons combined for another
huge defensive stop in the ninth when pinch-runner Dee
Gordon attempted to use his speed to get into scoring posi-
tion against Braves closer Craig Kimbrel.
Taking off for second, Gordon thought he had it stolen. But
Laird unleashed a strong throw from behind the plate that
Simmons scooped on the short hop while making the tag in
one motion, all while blocking Gordon’s left hand from the
bag with his knee.
Simmons screamed and Laird pumped his fist twice. Gordon
was wide-eyed in disbelief at the call. But Dodgers manager
Don Mattingly had a good look at it from the third-base
dugout and didn’t raise a peep.
“That’s a big throw,” Laird said. “(If he’s safe) then we walk
a guy and the next thing you know it’s first and second and
they get a bloop single and get the lead.”
Kimbrel, who walked two during a rare four-out save, finally
finished off the Dodgers by striking out Carl Crawford with a
98 mph fastball.
After an off day, the series resumes with two games at
Dodger Stadium on Sunday and Monday. Adeciding Game 5, if
necessary, would be back in Atlanta on Wednesday.
“We leave with a split,” Dodgers slugger Adrian Gonzalez
said. “We’ll try to wrap it up at home.”
Heyward had his big hit in the seventh, stretching the lead
to 4-1.
Good thing for the Braves, too.
Hanley Ramirez drove in all three runs for the Dodgers,
including an impressive show of the strength in the eighth for
a two-run homer.
Minor leads Braves past Dodgers

CAIRO — Egyptian riot police fired vol-
leys of tear gas and locked down Cairo’s
Tahrir Square Friday as clashes broke out in a
rare push by Islamist supporters of the oust-
ed president to take control of the iconic
square, leaving at least four dead.
With lines of armored vehicles and barbed
wire, troops sealed off the square and diverted
traffic after the Muslim Brotherhood, the
group from which ousted president
Mohammed Morsi hails, called on its sup-
porters to march there.
Thousands of Morsi’s supporters followed
suit from different parts in the city, chanting
“El-Sissi is the enemy of God” and “Down
with the murderer!”
Those were references to Defense Minister
Abdel-Fatah el-Sissi, who forced Morsi from
power on July 3 after millions took to the
streets demanding the Islamist leader step
In its statements, the Muslim Brotherhood
called Tahrir Square “the capital of the revolu-
tion.” It is the birthplace of the 2011 upris-
ing that forced longtime president Hosni
Mubarak from power and led to Morsi’s
short-lived tenure.
Since Morsi’s ouster, nearly 2,000 Muslim
Brotherhood members have been arrested, its
top leaders referred to courts over charges of
inciting murder and violence, and hundreds of
Morsi supporters have been killed. Morsi
himself has been detained incommunicado.
On Friday, authorities arrested Ahmed
Soubaei, a spokesman for the Freedom and
Justice party, the Brotherhood’s political
arm, after raiding his house, the group said
on its official website.
In a reflection of the chaos, the spokesman
of the liberal al-Dustour party Khaled Dawoud
came under attack when he drove past a group
of pro-Morsi supporters marching on a street
near Tahrir Square. The assailants dragged
him from his car, beat him and stabbed him
in the arm, Dawoud was quoted as telling the
state-run Al-Ahram news site.
His party was founded by leading pro-
democracy figure Mohamed ElBaradei, who
acted as a vice president after Morsi’s ouster
but quit in protest to state crackdown on the
ElBaradei tweeted that the attack reflects
“the adversity in which we live,” referring to
his fears of violence between rival parties.
The Brotherhood appears to be angling to
endure a crackdown that — while painful —
also helps keep group cohesion under the
pressure of a shared plight. It has publicly
stuck to its most hard-line demands — the
reinstatement of Morsi as president and the
restoration of the Morsi-era constitution.
Some Brotherhood members recognize the
possibility for that has passed. But the group
uses the demands to energize its members and
keep up street pressure as leverage in any
eventual negotiations, which could bring
concessions like easing the crackdown or
releasing jailed members.

Pope trip to St. Francis’
town highlights goals
ASSISI, Italy — Pope Francis broke bread
with the poor and embraced the disabled on a
pilgrimage to his name-
sake’s hometown Friday,
urging the faithful to fol-
low the example of the
13th-century St. Francis,
who renounced a wealthy,
dissolute lifestyle to
embrace a life of poverty
and service to the poor.
According to tradition,
God told St. Francis to
“repair my house,” and
the first pope to take the saint’s name has
made clear that he sees that as his own mis-
sion as well.
For Francis, that means reaching out to the
most marginalized among the church’s 1.2
billion followers, reforming the broken
Vatican bureaucracy, and allowing the faithful
to shake things up in their dioceses — even at
the annoyance of their bishops — if that’s
what it takes to better spread God’s word.

roducers and actors have many
potential issues to consider before
making a sequel: how to use the same
characters in an entirely new, still-gripping
story line. Similarly, an author must take
into account how much the audiences liked a
first book, and how to create another story of
similar caliber.
Perhaps the biggest
and most obvious issue is
that of people inevitably
comparing the addition
to the original. I am
going to be completely
honest here and say I am
really looking forward to
J.K. Rowling’s new
series, “Fantastic Beasts
and Where to Find Them.” Now, Rowling has
openly said this series is not meant to serve
as a prequel or sequel to the beloved Harry
Potter series. However, it will share the same
location and feature the same mythical crea-
tures. I can almost guarantee it will receive
some degree of “hate” from the Harry Potter
lovers, as they will compare the screenplay
and acting.
Another potential problem is the issue of
“exceeding expectations.” The sequel to
“Finding Nemo” will be coming to theaters
in 2015. However, the original set the stan-
dards so high, grossing more than $920
million worldwide, that the sequel, “Finding
Dory,” just might disappoint. The Twilight
series received mixed reviews, as many peo-
ple really enjoyed the first book, but routine-
ly said that the books that followed were just
This brings me to this question: What
must there be for a sequel to work?
Ultimately, for me, what makes sequels good
is the hype. Especially for book series made
into movies, the hype of who will play the
new character or which scenes are the fans
most excited see on screen makes the wait
worthwhile. In turn, the scenes and dramatic
effects must live up to our expectations. The
scenes, in general in Harry Potter and “The
Hunger Games,” were what we fans were
expecting, and so our hype was “justified.”
Sequels work when they do not lose the
characterization and original actors.
Invariably, when a sequel to a movie has a
different actor play the same lead character,
they somehow seem to lose integrity.
Moreover, there must be a larger overlying
story covering the many movies/books, or
else each addition just seems disjointed. A
reason Twilight really did not work was that
there really wasn’t much of a story line
besides the Edward/Bella romance. There
wasn’t a larger struggle that carried itself
through the four books, like Harry spent
seven years trying to find and defeat
Ultimately, I acknowledge it is hard to cre-

LOS ANGELES — Astory like that at the
heart of “Runner Runner,” about a young
American gambler who gets sucked way
above his head into the criminal doings of
a big-time offshore operator, would have
found its ideal life as a tough, punchy,
black-and-white programmer back in the
1950s. Today, it would have been most
viable as a grandiose character study done
on an operatic scale by a filmmaker like
Martin Scorsese or Michael Mann. What’s
actually up onscreen in this vaguely ambi-
tious but tawdry melodrama falls into an
in-between no man’s land that endows it
with no distinction whatsoever, a work
lacking both style and insight into the
netherworld it seeks to reveal. Despite an
intriguing setup and Ben Affleck and Justin
Timberlake heading the cast, this Fox
release holds a losing box-office hand.
The opening of the script by Brian
Koppelman and David Levien (“Solitary
Man,” “Oceans 13”) combines with
Timberlake’s presence to suggest a some-
what less exceptional variation on “The
Social Network’s” focus on maverick
entrepreneurialism in the Ivy League.
Threatened with expulsion from Princeton
unless he shuts down his online gambling
site, finance grad student Richie Furst
(Timberlake), with nothing now to lose,
heads for Costa Rica determined to stick it
to the undisputed king of computer gam-
bling, Ivan Black (Affleck).
Arriving during the boss’s annual
blowout, the Midnight Black Expo,
Richie cleverly scores an audience with
the bodyguard-festooned Ivan. Lounging
on his hero’s yacht, Richie brazenly
accuses his relaxed host of cheating him
on his site ... and Ivan readily admits it. In
the film’s best-written scene, the older
man affably agrees to reimburse the kid for
his losses and then some. But, then again,
Ivan can always use a smart, ballsy guy in
his operation, so maybe Richie would like
‘Runner’ is uncompelling
By Hannah Dreir
LAS VEGAS — The thriller “Runner
Runner” starring Justin Timberlake and
Ben Affleck hadn’t even opened yet, but it
was already the center of the fight over
online gambling regulation.
The American Gambling Association
has bought ads on major websites includ-
ing Twitter, Facebook and the IMDb
movie database framing the film as a “cau-
tionary tale” that points to the need for
Congress to legalize online poker. The ads
also pop up when people Google the
movie’s title.
The screenwriters have said their story
of a young gambler pulled into the crimi-
nal dealings of an offshore poker site was
never intended as a political parable. The
movie is scheduled to open later Thursday.
The Stop Predatory Gambling
Foundation, a national nonprofit, sent a
letter to the casino lobby Thursday point-
ing to the writers’ comments, and calling
the ads dishonest. The group is demanding
that the ads - one of which warns, “some-
times movie villains are real” — be taken

married. They live quiet, going-
nowhere lives and often bicker.
However, they enjoy looking at
their pond and grove of cherry trees
(Sonia calls it an orchard).
Their housekeeper, Cassandra
(Heather Alicia Simms), issues
prophecies and later shows herself
to be well versed in voodoo.
The routine is disrupted by the
arrival of their younger sister,
Masha (Lorri Holt), a movie actress
who doesn’t reveal her age but who
is probably in her 50s, too. With
her is her 29-year-old boyfriend,
Spike (Mark Junek) who’s more
sexy than smart.
Masha has been invited to a cos-
tume party and plans to go as Snow
White. Spike is to be her Prince
Charming, and she has brought
dwarf costumes for Vanya and
Sonia. Sonia refuses, saying she’ll
go as the evil queen before she
turned ugly. Instead, Masha enlists
the neighbors’ niece, Nina
(Caroline Kaplan), an aspiring
Act 2 takes place the next morn-
ing. Vanya and Sonia are upset that
Masha, who pays the household
expenses, wants to sell the house.
This is where Cassandra and her
voodoo help out.
In the meantime, Vanya and Nina
decide to enact a play he has written
that supposedly is by Konstantin
in Chekhov’s “The Seagull.” In a
scene that goes on too long, it’s an
awful play about the end of humani-
ty when only molecules survive.
Spike, puzzled by it all, texts on
his smartphone, eliciting a (too
long) diatribe from Vanya, who
talks about the good old days of the
’50s and ’60s, before electronics
and multi-tasking.
Nevertheless, Spike’s transgres-
sion leads to a major discovery and
important insights for Masha.
Director Richard E.T. White
makes excellent use of three veter-
an Bay Area actors — Fusco,
Lockwood and Holt — along with
three relative newcomers.
Except for his Act 2 outburst,
Fusco’s Vanya is low key. Much of
the humor in his performance
comes from slight changes in
Tony-winning comedy riffs on Chekhov
From left,Anthony Fusco (Vanya),Caroline Kaplan (Nina),Lorri Holt (Masha)

NEV. Before he took part in The
Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in
Tombstone, Ariz. Territory, Wyatt
Earp was already famous; after that
October afternoon in 1881, he was
a legend. In the years that fol-
lowed, he and his beloved wife,
Josephine Marcus, moved from
boomtown to boomtown, seeking
fortune and adventure, and their
travels naturally brought them to
Nevada. In 1897, Wyatt and his
close friend Bat Masterson were in
Carson City for the momentous
Corbett-Fitzsimmons prize fight
and were seen, armed, escorting
the fighters to the ring the day of
the fight. In 1902, Wyatt was in
Tonopah, running a saloon,
prospecting for gold and working
as a deputy marshal. Now, Wyatt
can be found most Sundays at the
Bucket of Blood Saloon in
Virginia City, where he mixes eas-
ily with locals and visitors alike
and happily engages in conversa-
tion about his life and all things
Wyatt makes his appearances
courtesy of re-enactor Michael
Curcio, an actor, artist and former
Western Fast Draw Association
top-ten competitor. Curcio origi-
nally researched the lawman’s life
in connection with a theater role,
and then was drawn in. Curcio
said, “I was in a re-enactors’ group
called The Guns and Gals of Old
Virginia City. The group wanted to
do the O.K. Corral to music. To do
this properly, I needed to research
who shot who, how many times,
etc. This is when I became
enthralled with Wyatt’s life and
his adventures. The more I read,
the more I became fascinated with
this fellow. He was not afraid to
try anything.”
BOYS. Wyatt’s current haunt, the
Bucket of Blood Saloon, built in
1876, anchors “C” Street, the
bustling heart of Virginia City. A
National Landmark, the town
includes 500 buildings dating to
the time of the great bonanzas.
Virginia City, the first silver rush
town, owed its success to the 1859
discovery of the Comstock Lode,
and at its height in 1863 had
15,000 residents. These days, the
Bucket of Blood is packed on the
weekends with crowds drawn to the
wonderfully exuberant western
music provided by David John and
the Comstock Cowboys, the offi-
cial house band. Many in the audi-
ence dress in period garb, (cow-
boy, gunfighter, gambler, saloon
girl, schoolmarm) and nearby
stores sell western wear (Stetsons,
boots, ladies’ Victorian clothing)
that helps the newly arrived get
into the spirit. John said, “When
Virginia City visitors (from all
over the world) walk through the
doors of The Bucket of Blood on a
Saturday or Sunday afternoon,
they immediately step back in
time.” Anumber of the Comstock
Cowboys’ songs reference Wyatt;
be sure to request “Let My Soul
Pass Through Tombstone,” writ-
ten by David John.
LARS. The Bucket of Blood
Saloon is located at 1 S. C St.,
Virginia City, Nev. For informa-
tion about the performance sched-
ule of David John and the
Comstock Cowboys visit

City in style, ride the historic
Virginia and Truckee Railroad
(“Queen of the Short Lines”) from
Carson City and step off near the
original 1870 V and T passenger
depot, just three blocks from
Virginia City’s main street.
TO WYATT. During all his years
of law enforcement and gunfights,
Wyatt Earp was never so much as
grazed by a bullet. He died at home
in Los Angeles on Jan. 13, 1929,
at the age of 80 with Josie at his
bedside. The pallbearers at his
funeral included western film stars
William S. Hart and Tom Mix,
both of whom were his close
friends. Josie, who was of Jewish
heritage, had Wyatt’s body cremat-
ed and buried his ashes in the
Marcus family plot at the Hills of
Eternity, a Jewish cemetery in
Colma. When she died in 1944,
Josie’s ashes were buried next to
his. His grave is visited frequently
by admirers, who often leave
coins, poker chips, badges and
unsmoked cigars as tokens of
possible subjects, travel is the
most difficult for an artist, as it is
the easiest for a journalist. W.H.

ate a sequel that people will like as
much as the original. However, it has
been done. Whether we are talking
about “Despicable Me 2,” which was
arguably as hilarious as the first, “The
Godfather: Part II,” which many people
believe was better than “The
Godfather,” or Harry Potter, I think we
can agree that all three titles had strong
character development, a strong plot
and wide public appeal.

National director Les Bernal wrote that
there was no reason to think shady offshore
operations would disappear if online gam-
bling was legalized in The U.S. and accused
the casino lobby of wanting a cut of the ille-
gal operators’ business.
“Casino operators now hope to expand
another key demographic to their base:
young people, especially those of college
age, which is why the AGA greedily seized
upon `Runner, Runner,’” Bernal wrote.
Internet poker, never fully legal, has been
strictly outlawed since 2011, when the
Department of Justice seized the domain
names of the largest offshore sites catering
to U.S. customers and blacked them out.
This crackdown, dubbed “black Friday, ”
left poker fanatics with two options: Get
dressed and visit a card room, or break the
law and log into an offshore site.
Offshore gambling sites took in roughly
$2.6 billion from U.S. players last year,
according to Geoff Freeman, president of
the association.
More recently, the federal government
softened its stance on Internet betting, and
three states — New Jersey, Delaware and
Nevada — legalized some form of online
wagering within their borders.
The gambling lobby, which counts MGM
Resorts International and Caesars
Entertainment among its members, sup-
ports a federal approach. It warns that a
patchwork of state laws will be unworkable
for corporations and could leave gamblers
exposed to dishonest dealings.
The lobby is seizing any opportunity to
try to jumpstart stalled federal legislation.
“Washington is changing, and how you
share your message in Washington is
changing,” Freeman said. “You’ve got to
break through the clutter. ”
Freeman dismissed the predatory gam-
bling group’s complaint. He said online
gambling empires like the one depicted in
the movie often fail to verify gamblers’
ages and locations, and they offer no guar-
antee they’re playing fair.
“Runner Runner,” released by Twentieth
Century Fox, tells the story of a Princeton

to come work for him. Seven, maybe even
eight figures a year beckon.
With Puerto Rican locations doubling for
Costa Rica, the allure of Ivan’s world looks
pretty tacky no matter how doused in
money it is. With the help of a couple of
other Yankee college boys who are given
no character dimension whatsoever, Richie
quickly learns the ropes and gets mixed
signals from Ivan’s glamorous factotum
Rebecca (Gemma Arterton), who may or
may not be on exclusive reserve for the
boss. All goes swimmingly until, a third of
the way in, Richie is kidnapped by none
other than the FBI, whose local agent
Shavers (Anthony Mackie) tries to coerce
the kid into informing on Ivan’s business.
When Richie tells his boss what hap-
pened, Ivan waves it off, claiming it hap-
pens to everyone who works for him. But
Ivan has a little unpleasantness of his own
in store for his eager acolyte, as he forces
him to blackmail a top client into a con-
tinued business relationship, then starts
using him as a bagman to pay off local
The overriding problem with the direc-
tion by Brad Furman (“The Lincoln
Lawyer,” “The Take”) is that it lacks a real
pulse, a throb of excitement that pulls you
into this unsavory world and will accept no
resistance. Furman stuffs the screen with
luxurious digs, fancy cars, cool boats, pri-
vate jets and parties loaded with scantily
clad women, but there’s no undercurrent, no
intoxicating hook used to snare the audi-
ence, along with Richie, for the ride.
Beyond that, the drama’s final stretch, in
which Richie must desperately try to turn
the tables on his boss if he has a chance of
escaping with his hide intact, charts arcane
financial and strategic moves in such a
rapid and superficial way that it’s impossi-
ble to know how, in any semblance of a
real world, he can pull this off in almost no
time at all. To whatever marginal extent
one might be invested in the film up to this
point, the impulse is to just throw in the

Lockwood’s Sonia complains a lot, but she
has fun wearing her sequined evil queen gown
and imitating Maggie Smith.
Holt’s Masha is a self-centered, egotistical
woman who has been married and divorced
five times. She can’t understand why she’s had
no luck with romance.
Simms earns bursts of applause as her
Cassandra launches into a near-frenzy of pre-
dictions along with the mythological origin
of her name. Junek’s athletic Spike takes
pride in his sexiness, sweeping Masha into
passionate embraces and twice stripping
down to his briefs. Kaplan is wide-eyed and
sweet as young Nina.
The action takes place in the comfortable
sun room of a handsome stone house typical
of Southeastern Pennsylvania (set by Kent
Dorsey). Highlighted by the hilarious Snow
White outfits, the costumes are by Debra
Beaver Bauer.
The play runs about two hours and 45 min-
utes with one intermission, but, except for a
few scenes, it speeds by. You don’t have to be
familiar with Chekhov’s plays to enjoy it,
but if you are, the fun is all the greater.

from the county government center
and courthouse. The already over-
crowded Maguire has been stretched
even further by the influx of new pris-
oners under state realignment. This
segment is staying longer, is more
criminally sophisticated and has creat-
ed a “hardening of the population,”
Munks said.
Once the new facility opens, they
will be housed there along with all
female inmates and others serving
time or transitioning back into the
community. Maguire will be used for
booking and holding pretrial and
higher-level offenders and those who
require maximum security, administra-
tive segregation or special gang hous-
i ng.
The mentally ill will also get new
The proposed renovations at
Maguire call for retooling an 80-bed
area into a 40-bed mental health ward
and converting the second-floor cor-
rectional medical wing into space for
the more seriously mentally ill.
Maguire will maintain a clinic area but
the primary treatment wing will be at
the new jail.
Other proposed improvements
include recreational facilities and
enhance hands-on vocational train-
i ng.
The desired projects carry a $20.1
million price tag and qualifying for
state money under Senate Bill 1022
requires a 10 percent local match. The
county plans to pay its part through
$1,444,000 in cash from the general
fund’s excess property tax reserves
from fiscal year 2014-17 and
$598,000 in-kind staff time by the
county administration and jail plan-
ning unit.
Munks said although the county is
spending money on the upgrades, it
also stands to save money over time
by reducing recidivism.
Astate committee will make funding
recommendations in mid-December
with final awards by the Board of State
and Community Corrections coming
in January.
Munks is optimistic the county will
receive money because he said its pro-
posed projects are consistent with
what the state wants to fund.
The possibility of state jail money
is a sharp contrast to the county’s
stymied efforts to fund its new facility.
After the county’s application was last
denied, Hill tried twice to gut and
amend a bill that would have relin-
quished the state jail money declined
by San Joaquin County. Hill and coun-
ty officials argued San Mateo County’s
project should be a priority because it
was actually underway while other
counties are still in the conceptual
phase and not required to prove a need
or site until 2017.
In 2008, the state awarded San Mateo
County $100 million from a new facil-
ities bill aimed at easing prison over-
crowding but passed on the money
because it refused the requirement to
house state inmates. The state
revamped its funding requirements and
issued another round of grants but San
Mateo County was not even invited to
apply because other counties had larg-
er populations and inmate pools.
Most recently, the exclusion was
because the construction is already
happening. The new jail is expected to
open in summer 2015.
Despite the lack of state funding for
the new jail, Munks said he’s glad the
county didn’t wait.
“Frankly, I have no regrets about the
timing and the fact that we pushed for-
ward with our project. If you look
around the state, of all the counties
who have participated, not a single
bed has come online yet,” Munks said.
“If we had sat around and waited for
them to get their act together, we’d
still be six years away from getting the
project done.”
Continued from page 1
the declaration is the beginning step
toward further action if necessary to
force the closure.
“As San Bruno showed, they fell
down on record keeping. They don’t
know what they have in the ground in
a lot of places,” Olbert said, referenc-
ing the Sept. 10, 2010 explosion and
fire that killed eight, injured dozens
and destroyed 38 homes.
In a statement issued Friday, City
Manager Jeff Maltbie said the emer-
gency declaration will be followed by
pursuing a court-ordered shutdown of
the line. PG&E’s refusal to suspend
operations is “an outrage,” Maltbie
In a letter to Maltbie Friday, PG&E
officials emphasized that the line was
tested in 2011 and showed it would
withstand beyond current operating
pressure. Atest this summer also indi-
cated that there was no evidence of
crack growth during service or hydro
testing, according to the letter.
PG&E said it will voluntarily reduce
the line pressure by 20 percent and
evaluate if any additional pressure
reduction can be done without affect-
ing gas delivery.
“We want our customers to know that
Line 147 is safe and if a line wasn’t
safe we wouldn’t keep it in service,”
said spokesman Greg Snapper.
San Carlos city staff sprung into
action after Oct. 3 when PG&E shared
email exchanges from Nov. 15 to Nov.
17 of 2012 that call into question the
safety of Line 147 which cuts west to
east through San Carlos roughly paral-
lel with Brittan Avenue. The emails,
from an unnamed PG&E employee with
gas transmission expertise, stated the
utility was concerned about the specif-
ic pipeline which dates from 1929 and
in 2011 tested to only 1.5 times the
maximum allowable operating pres-
sure, according to the city resolution.
The employee also noted a thin wall
pipe with external corrosion that
caused a leak in October 2012 needed
repair. The employee also questioned if
hydrostatic testing in 2011 caused
more cracking and “activated a threat
of failure.”
The city’s emergency declaration
said the employee raised “a horrifying-
ly real fear” that people in San Carlos
might be “sitting on a San Bruno situ-
The information came to San Carlos
after PG&E on July 3 gave the CPUC
documents that corrected previous
records about Line 147’s safety at high
pressure operations and contradicted
its earlier assurances.
Snapper said PG&E is glad when
employees ask these important ques-
tions and that it led to testing by a
third party.
Local state and federal politicians
immediately joined San Carlos’ call for
action. U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San
Mateo, said the utility engineer’s con-
cerns about the pipeline cracking as a
result of the test should be reason
alone to turn it off but added the with-
holding of the information from the
city is another.
State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo,
and Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, D-
South San Francisco, also chimed in.
“Given the San Bruno tragedy, PG&E
should err on the side of caution and
shut down Line 147 immediately until
it can assure the public that the line is
100 percent safe,” Mullin said.
Anyone who detects the smell of gas
should contact PG&E’s emergency
service center at (800) 743-5000.

sionate about, Pernambuco-Wise said.
Today’s generation strives toward the par-
adigm of leaving the world better than
when they found it, Pernambuco-Wi se
“Young people want to make a difference
in the world and that is more important to
them than making a lot of money or the
traditional definition of success,”
Pernambuco-Wise said.
The philanthropy and activism of those
at Sea Crest inspires Pernambuco-Wise.
When a parent informed her the city of
Half Moon Bay was looking for organiza-
tions to adopt various parks, she suggest-
ed Sea Crest adopt Poplar Beach,
Pernambuco-Wise said.
Every month, a different grade will head
to Poplar to groom the beach for trash and
learn hands-on how to be stewards of the
environment, Pernambuco-Wise said.
The traditional lecture system doesn’t
work for all children, but most benefit
from interacting with tactile objects,
Pernambuco-Wise said. Sea Crest is in the
process of constructing its innovation
lab, which will include a 3-D printer, laser
cutter, tools and other collaborative mate-
rials, Pernambuco-Wise said.
Eventually, she hopes to open the inno-
vation lab to the public to strengthen ties
to the community, Pernambuco-Wise said.
Educators are preparing children for a
future with unknown challenges,
Pernambuco-Wise said; so teaching core
skills like critical thinking, communica-
tion and collaboration will help a pupil’s
competency, creativity and character.
She’s initiated a breakfast club and invited
principals from local private and public
schools to share ideas about how to help
the youth, Pernambuco-Wise said.
“We’re all educators and I firmly believe
that there is a school for each child. There
are some children who will thrive in the
public school system, there are some chil-
dren who will thrive [at Sea Crest] and
there are some children who will thrive in
a different kind of school. There’s a differ-
ent kind of school for different pupils,”
Pernambuco-Wise said.
Children’s lives are very structured and
can sometimes result in fatigue and stress,
Pernambuco-Wise said. Making school a
joyous activity and creating an environ-
ment that encourages a child to use their
imagination will help them become self-
sufficient and successful, Pernambuco-
Wise said.
“Teaching children that character is vital
is important, because [they’re] going to
have to make choices when we’re not
around,” Pernambuco-Wise said. “And how
they make those choices and the kinds of
choices they make will effect, for some of
them, the world that we’re in.”

endangerment with the caveat she not serve
any time. The question was whether she
would be ordered to undergo any type of
child abuse program.
Prosecutors were satisfied with the out-
“The conviction memorializes her con-
duct as abusive to a child, and the sentence
prohibits her from acting as a foster parent,
so we believe that the desired outcome was
achieved,” said Chief Deputy District
Attorney Karen Guidotti.
The endangerment charge means a person
is accused of acting negligently in a way
that is likely to result in physical injury or
death rather than acting more knowingly,
such as a deliberate blow.
South San Francisco police first arrested
Moore in August 2010 after hospital staff
tending to the toddler alerted authorities
that the child had first- and second-degree
burns on her buttocks. According to prose-
cutors, Moore later told authorities she used
bleach-soaked diapers to clean the child
who soiled herself quite often. After
Moore’s adult daughter brought the girl to
the South San Francisco Kaiser Medical
Center for care, doctors allegedly noted the
burns were in a waffle pattern like that of
diaper fabric. Moore allegedly also could
not explain why, if the girl had been bathed,
she didn’t have burns on other parts of her
body that would have been submerged, such
as her legs.
The negotiated settlement came during
Moore’s second prosecution. After a May
2011 preliminary hearing, Judge Richard
Livermore found insufficient evidence to try
Moore and prosecutors responded in fall
2012 by seeking a criminal grand jury
indictment on felony charges of willful cru-
elty to a child and infliction of injury on a

LAMPEDUSA, Italy — The friends were
heading out on a fishing trip, when one heard
voices from the sea.
Don’t be silly, Vito Fiorino told him — it’s
only the seagulls’ early morning song. Then,
about 500 yards (meters) from shore, he saw
heads bobbing in the water.
Dozens of Africans were floating, too weak
to grab a life preserver and so slippery from
gasoline that it was hard to pull them on
board. Some grasped empty water bottles to
stay afloat.
“It was a scene from a film, something you
hope never to see in life,” he told the
Associated Press. “They were exhausted.
When I threw the lifesaver, they had a hard
time doing two strokes to reach it.”
Fiorino says he and his friends were the
first to reach the fiery wreck around 7 a.m.
Thursday, sounding the alarm and saving 47
people before the Coast Guard and other ves-
sels arrived to help, eventually rescuing a
total of 155 people. The migrants told
Fiorino they had been in the water for three
The scope of the tragedy at Lampedusa —
with 111 bodies recovered so far and more
than 200 missing, according to survivor
accounts given to U.N. officials — has
prompted outpourings of grief and calls for a
comprehensive EU immigration policy to
deal with the tens of thousands fleeing pover-
ty and strife in Africa and the Middle East.
On a pilgrimage to Assisi, Pope Francis
called the tragedy a “day of tears” and
denounced a “savage” system he said drives
people to leave their homes for a better life
and turns a blind eye when they die in the
Lampedusa, a tiny island 70 miles (113
kilometers) off Tunisia and closer to Africa
than the Italian mainland, has been at the
center of wave after wave of illegal immigra-
tion. The island’s mayor, Giusi Nicolini, said
she had hoped the pope’s visit there earlier
this year would draw attention to the issue and
lead to policy changes.
Instead, Thursday’s tragedy may prove to
be the biggest loss of life involving
migrants undertaking the treacherous journey
across the Mediterranean, where such deaths
are all too common and often are impossible
to verify because bodies are lost far out at sea
and never found.
“Here it is all within 600 meters of shore
and we will have more clarity,” said Laurens
Jolles, the U.N. High Commissioner for
Refugees representative in Italy.
More often, unseaworthy vessels limp to
shore with many dead on board, including
one recent incident with 63 bodies on a boat
with seven survivors.
