Awoman took up residence in an
oak tree in Redwood City Friday to
protest it being cut down, saving
the tree at least for now.
Redwood City teacher Gwen
Minor began sitting in a large tree
on the corner of Alameda de las
Pulgas and Goodwin Avenue in the
Woodside Plaza neighborhood 5
a.m. Friday. The city has moni-
tored the tree for some time and it
is dying because it is suffering
from an advanced Armillaria infec-
tion, which has caused failure at
the root crown and the root plate,
and destruction of the buttress
roots along the trunks entire cir-
cumference, said city spokesman
Malcolm Smith.
Given the concerns about the
planned removal expressed by at
least one neighbor, the city will
not proceed with the work at this
time, while it further communi-
cates with the resident and other
neighbors to ensure there is a full
understanding of the need for
removal and replacement of this
tree, Smith said.
Our consulting arborist deems
the entire tree at overall extreme
risk of imminent failure
meaning large branches or sec-
tions of trunk (or the entire tree)
could break apart and fall, Smith
wrote in an email. Cars and
pedestrians in the area are at risk
when this kind of tree failure
occurs. The city has spent sev-

San Bruno Mayor Jim Ruane,
Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, D-
South San Francisco, and state
Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, said
the CPUC illegally intervened in
the penalty case against PG&E for

explosion to secure a more favor-
able ruling for PG&E, as well as
engaging in illegal communica-

action to protect the public, Hill
The call for action comes in the
wake of PG&E firing three
employees earlier this week for
email conversations with CPUC
ofcials that discussed assigning
administrative law judges to rate-
setting cases who would be more
sympathetic to PG&Es case.

Things are moving along quickly with the
Burlingames main Primrose Road library
construction and its expected to be com-
pleted a month ahead of schedule.
The $3.5 million renovation began Aug.
11 and it was expected to wrap up in April
2015. Ofcials now say the project, which
will modify the downtown branchs interior
to meet the needs of modern patrons by pro-
viding exible space for collaboration, cre-
ativity and exploration, could be done in
March 2015.
Its moving pretty quickly, said City
Librarian Patricia Harding. Were going to
be able to open up the upper level the week
of Oct. 2.
The City Council awarded a $1.74 million
construction contract to Zolman
Construction and Development to create the
new tech and media lab with updated comput-
ers and LCD screens, video conferencing
capabilities, four group study rooms, a new
conference room that ts 20 people, an
expanded teen area, a Burlingame Library
Foundation bookstore and cafe, along with
new carpeting.
Financing is also happening quickly,
Harding said. The City Council agreed to
pledge $2.5 million, while the library foun-
dation is charged with raising the remaining
$1 million through donations and public
fundraising. So far, the librarys capital cam-
paign committee has raised $672,000 of the
$1 million pledged or donated since it began
fundraising in November 2013, Harding
said. The library has a personal goal of rais-
ing $750,000 by December 2014.
With the rapid rate of the capital cam-
paign, we hope to nish (nancing) by
December 2015, she said.
So far, 192 people have donated. Melanie
and Kurt Hoefer would like to give $100,000
and name the teen room the Hoefer Teen
Room. The family lives in Hillsborough,
but is well established in the Burlingame
community. The family donated to the origi-
nal campaign 20 years ago, Harding said.
The Burlingame library has been an
important resource to several generations of
the Hoefer family. Were delighted with the
efforts of Burlingame Library Foundation to
maintain and adapt this beautiful and vital
institution to a new era for many more gen-
erations to come. We are pleased to help
renew this vital institution by adapting to
changing technology and responding to the
numerous 21st century needs of its patrons,
said Melanie Hoefer.
Patty Anixter, the Burlingame Library
Foundations capital campaign chair, noted
rooms will only be named with more than
$100,000 donations and there wont be any
corporate logos. The library will need
approval from the capital campaign commit-
tee, the City Council and the librarys Board
of Trustees before a room naming can be
The library serves 11,000 households, so
we should get more (donations), Anixter
Two rooms in the library currently honor
major donors. The Duncan Childrens Room
and the Lane Community Room were both
named during the Something New is
Building campaign in 1995. The library
was built at its current downtown location in
1930. The last time it was reconstructed was
in 1995.
This campaign is reaching a broader
base, Harding said. The foundation was
just starting in the 1990s. We have a long
history now, so we have a lot of support.
Although the majority of the outside of
the building wont be modied, the librarys
ramp on the east side of the building, off of
the parking lot, will be reconfigured to
accommodate the new automated materials
check-in system.
The library is staying open during renova-
tions by doing the updates oor by oor,
starting with the upper level and closing off
one space at a time, Harding said. Each oor
will take about three months, she said.
For those interested in giving contribu-
tions, gifts of $1,000 or more will be listed
on the Burlingame Library Wall of Honor.
Gifts of $5,000 or more include prominent
recognition and special tours. Gifts above
$10,000 include Honorary Membership in
the Escoffier Society. Gifts more than
$25,000 include for a donor plaque, while
gifts more than $50,000 include dignied
donor plaque. Contributions of $100,000 or
more may qualify for the naming opportuni-
t y. Go to front-
page-featured to donate.
Amailer will go out the week of Sept. 29
asking residents of Hillsborough and
Burlingame to donate.

Man wanted for lewd acts in San Mateo
San Mateo police are on the lookout for a man who may
be connected to two lewd incidents this week near San
Mateo High School.
In the rst incident, a 15-year-old girl was walking just
north of the school on Delaware Street at about 8 a.m. when
she was followed by a Hispanic man in a white 2005
Mitsubishi Lancer. He made eye contact with her and
appeared to be masturbating, according to police. He was
seen again Friday just after 7:30 a.m. and appeared to be
masturbating in the same vehicle in the Woodlake
Shopping Center north of the high school. His activity
appeared to be directed toward a group of teenage girls,
according to police.
The man is described as 35 to 45 years old, medium com-
plexion, medium build, with dark hair and an unshaven face,
according to police.
Anyone with any information is asked to call San Mateo

SANTAANA Federal ofcials have
approved new wording on a proposed
California drivers license for immi-
grants who are living in the country
illegally, ending months of debate
over what the card should say.
Homeland Security ofcials wrote in
a letter earlier this week that
Californias decision to include the
words federal limits apply on the
face of the license would comply with
a law that created national identica-
tion standards after the 9/11 terrorist
attacks, according to a copy of the let-
ter that was made public Friday.
Federal ofcials had rejected an earli-
er version of the license because it
wasnt distinctive enough from the
license for legal residents. The state
had suggested having the letters DP,
for driving privilege, in the space
where conventional licenses bear the
letters DL, and carrying a statement
on the back saying the immigrant
licenses are not acceptable for federal
purposes, such as boarding a ight.
Since then, state ofcials and immi-
grant advocates have worked to come
up with wording that meets federal
requirements but doesnt call too much
attention to immigrants legal status
in the country.

declared a drought emergency.
Ofcials throughout the state's Central
Valley farming region report pockets of
homes where private wells have gone dry,
but nobody formally keeps a tally. Ofcials
in the Tulare County town of East Porterville
estimate as many as 290 dry wells, and coun-
tywide that gure is more than 400.
Brown's order will make money available
to counties that apply through the
California Disaster Assistance Act. It addi-
tionally extends the state's prohibition on
price gouging during an emergency.
H.D. Palmer, a spokesman for the state
Department of Finance, said there is no dollar
amount attached to the order, which will
depend on how many counties apply for assis-
tance. The state will reimburse up to 75 per-
cent of what each county spends, Palmer said.
California reinstates
tougher arson penalties
SACRAMENTO California has reinstat-
ed tougher penalties for aggravated arson
just as authorities charge a Northern
California man with setting a re that has
burned nearly 120 square miles of timber in
the mountains east of Sacramento.
SB930 by Republican Sen. Tom Berryhill
of Modesto takes effect immediately after
Gov. Jerry Brown announced signing it
The El Dorado County District Attorney's
Ofce says the tougher penalties will not
apply to Wayne Allen Huntsman even if he is
convicted. That's because the King Fire burn-
ing west of Lake Tahoe started before the bill
became law. The previous law expired in
January. The renewed law allows for prison
terms of 10 years to life if arson damage
exceeds $7 million.
California to ban
smoking at home day cares
SACRAMENTO Home day care opera-
tors in California must stop smoking in
their houses, even after hours when children
are gone.
Gov. Jerry Brown announced Friday he had
signed AB1819, joining 12 other states with
similar bans that target "third-hand" smoke.
Smoking during day care hours is already
banned. Democratic Assemblyman Isadore
Hall of Compton says his bill responds to
the dangers of smoke that lingers in furniture
and carpets. A recent study by Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory found such
smoke damages DNA in human cells and is
especially dangerous for children.
Operators at 36,000 home facilities face
penalties of $100 and revoked licenses for
lighting up. Smoking in backyards and out-
side the home is still permitted.
Brown vetoes diaper
changing-station bills
SACRAMENTO Gov. Jerry Brown has
vetoed a pair of bills that would have made
diaper changing stations available in both
men's and women's restrooms.
Brown announced Friday that he vetoed
SB1350 and SB1358, saying many busi-
nesses already have taken steps to accom-
modate customers.
In his messages to Democratic Sens. Lois
Wolk of Davis and Ricardo Lara of Bell
Gardens, Brown said it would be prudent to
leave the issue to the private sector rather
than legislate it.
SB1350 would have required the California
Buildings Standards Commission to adopt
standards requiring changing stations in
public restrooms, regardless of gender, when
one is being built or renovated.

A U.S.Secret Service agent with an automatic rie hurries people to evacuate the White House
complex over a security alert moments after President Barack Obama and his family left for
the presidential retreat, Camp David.
By Josh Lederman
WASHINGTON Much of the White
House was evacuated on Friday after some-
one jumped over the fence and ran toward the
executive mansion, minutes after President
Barack Obama had departed.
Video from the scene showed a man mak-
ing it most of the way across the North Lawn
and approaching the main entrance to the
presidential residence. A Secret Service
agent at the scene conrmed that someone
had jumped the fence.
White House staffers and Associated Press
journalists inside the West Wing were evacu-
ated by Secret Service ofcers, some with
their weapons drawn. Those evacuated were
later allowed back into the White House, but
the area remained closed to pedestrian trafc.
The incident occurred just minutes after
Obama and his daughters left the White
House aboard Marine One on their way to
Camp David, the presidential retreat in
Maryland where Obama and his family were
to spend the weekend.

WASHINGTON The Food and Drug
Administration on Friday revised sweeping
food safety rules proposed last year after
farmers complained that the regulations
could hurt business.
The new proposals would relax water qual-
ity standards and allow farmers to harvest
crops sooner after using raw manure as fer-
The nal rules are due in 2015, and the
FDA has been haggling over how to write
them since Congress passed a food safety
law in 2010. Regulators say balancing the
need for tighter food safety standards after
major food-borne illness outbreaks in
spinach, eggs, peanuts and cantaloupe
against the needs of farmers who are new to
such regulations has been a challenge.
Michael Taylor, FDAs deputy commis-
sioner for foods, says the agency is trying
to achieve the goal of food safety in a prac-
tical way. The rules are new terrain for the
agency, he says.
The rules originally proposed in January
2013 would require farmers to take new pre-
cautions against contamination, making
sure workers hands are washed, irrigation
water is clean and that animals stay out of
elds, among other things. Food manufac-
turers would also have to submit food safety
plans to the government to show they are
keeping their operations clean. Those
changes would in many cases require new
equipment, paperwork and record-keeping.
None of those priorities would change in
the revised rule. But after complaints from
farmers big and small who said the rules
were too burdensome, the new proposal
would relax some standards for the amount
of bacteria that can be found in irrigation
water and reduce the frequency with which it
is tested, in some cases. The proposal also
reduces the amount of time required between
fertilizing crops with raw manure and har-
vest and allows farmers to hold produce in a
packing house without further regulations.
The smallest farms would continue to be
exempted from many of the rules.
The organic industry had expressed con-
cerns about the rules, especially because
many organic farmers use raw manure as fer-
tilizer and try to treat irrigation water with
fewer chemicals.

Congress backs
Obama on aid
to Syrian rebels
By Andrew Taylor
WASHINGTON President Barack Obama on Friday
signed into law legislation authorizing the military to arm
and train moderate Syrian rebels ghting
Islamic State militants in the Middle
Obama acted a day after a Senate vote
capped congressional action on the
request, which passed by wide margins
despite reservation about whether his
strategy will do enough to stop the surg-
ing terrorist group, which has seized
large swaths of Iraq and Syria. Congress
will revisit the issue after the midterm
Thursdays bipartisan 78-22 tally Thursday blended sup-
port from Obamas close Democratic allies and some of his
ercest GOP critics, including top Senate Republican Mitch
McConnell of Kentucky. It put leading contenders for the
2016 GOP presidential nomination on opposite sides.
Some of Obamas liberal allies defected.
The legislation also provides funding for the government
after the end of the budget year on Sept. 30, eliminating any
threat of a shutdown in the run-up to November elections
that will seat a new House and decide control of the Senate.
The House approved the bill on Wednesday.
Obama said Thursday that the support from both
Republicans and Democrats shows the world that
Americans are united in combating the Islamic State group.
He said the militants thought they could frighten or intimi-
date Americans, but the Senate vote had showed them they
were wrong.
As Americans, we do not give in to fear, Obama said.
We pull together. We stand together.
U.S. troops would train Syrian rebels at camps in Saudi
Arabia, though the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
Gen. Martin Dempsey, said it could take a year before they
would return to the battleeld in Syria. The arm-and-train
authority only extends into December, and lawmakers are to
revisit the issue in a postelection, lame-duck session.
Supporters of the proposal agreed that more has to be
done to combat Islamic State extremists who are on the
move in Iraq and Syria and shocked the world by beheading
two American journalists and a British aid worker. The U.S.
estimates the extremists can muster 20,000 to 31,500 ght-
ers across Syria and Iraq, with two-thirds of them in Syria
and the rest in Iraq. Terrorism experts say they are better
organized and more dangerous than al-Qaida, which is lend-
ing urgency to the effort.
But opponents of Obamas strategy say it would hand
weapons to shadowy groups that could prove untrustworthy
and whose top priority is to topple Syrian President Bashar
Intervention when both choices are bad is a mistake.
Intervention when both sides are evil is a mistake.
Intervention that destabilizes the Middle East is a mistake,

dozens of extremist fighters were

not been completed, while showing

Ofcials said it was at a former military
installation seized by the group.
One analyst said the French action
was more symbolic than substantive

The wrong priority
Hopefully, the State Department
gurus who plan and execute this coun-
trys international relations have nal-
ly gured out that Israel is not the
problem in the Middle East. While
John Kerry was running back and forth
trying to get Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian
Authority (PA) leader Mahmoud Abbas
to negotiate stuff, the Syrian murder
machine ground on relentlessly, we
lost Egypt as an ally, and Iraq to ISIS
and Iran.
The emphasis on rst resolving the
dispute between Israel and Arab
Palestinians has been proved by recent
events to have been the wrong priori-
t y. Worse, the United States is about to
get mired in yet another inter-Muslim
war unsolvable by military means. The
fact that this happened in spite of a
U.S. president who convinced those
who re-elected him that he knows what
he is doing, proves that he didnt and
he doesnt .
Whether Hamas and ISIS can be con-
sidered to be the same or not is a point-
less analysis. Whether someone kills
you with bombs or with a sword is an
unimportant detail. The important
detail is why they want to kill you in
the rst place.
The United States and Israel are in
the same cross-hairs of Islamic terror-
ists globally. Aunied approach with
our only real friend will work much
better than trying to play chess
against people who are playing
Russian roulette on the other side of
the board with the gun pointed at us
most of the time.

Military madness
Lots of letters to the editor on war,
more war and winning wars and excuses
for war. What we need is to state that
all military actions must end.
War is not ever the answer. Our soci-
ety must reject the use of military force
to solve societal problems. There are
other ways. Killing people and taking
their land is evil and must not be sanc-
tioned. Wars are caused by greed and we
need to learn to care for each other and
share the bounty of the earth before we
end all life on earth. The next war will
be a nuclear war and kill us all.

Arson should be registered
A21-year-old Redwood City woman
who prosecutors say set her ex-
boyfriends bed on re while he slept
pleaded no contest to felony arson and
assault to avoid trail for attempted mur-
der, (Bed burner takes arson plea
deal in the Sept. 9 edition of the Daily
Journal). According to California Penal
Code sections 451 and 452, this case
appears to be willful and malicious
arson against the victim. It also raises
the point that arson has a way of
enveloping adjacent housing, wild-
lands and potential victims. There is
no factual evidence that suggests the
suspect has a defense based upon what
has been reported recently.
I have noted in the past, that the
District Attorneys Ofce lawyers have
not required arson registration on other
cases which are felonious or the nego-
tiated plea was reduced to a misde-
meanor. Arson is so dangerous. No one
in the courts, including the prosecuting
attorney or our county judges, have
stressed the importance of registration.
It is time to invoke routine arson reg-
istration just as we register sex offend-
Both elected district attorneys (Jim
Fox and Steve Wagstaffe) have not
required arson registration for those
convicted of burning schools and
housing from at least 10 years of my
observation. This must change just as
the Superior Court should be certain
that registration be required for those
who are convicted. Restitution should
also be required even though it is like-
ly that the taxpayer will have to pay
outright or pass a parcel tax.

The New York Times
he economy has been on the
road to recovery since mid-
2009, when the Great
Recession ofcially ended. But, for
most Americans, recovery is not there
yet, and, at the recent rate of
progress, it wont be for a long time,
if ever.
New census data on income and
poverty, released on Tuesday, show
that median household income barely
budged in 2013 for the second year in
a row, following two consecutive
annual declines. At nearly $52,000, it
is still 8 percent below its level in
2007 before the recession. To make
matters worse, the income declines
from the recession came on top of
losses carried over from the prior
business cycle from 2000 to 2007. In
all, median household income in
America is 8.6 percent below its peak
in 2000.
The situation is even bleaker for
households led by people under age
65. Unlike older households, their
income is not usually cushioned by
steady Social Security payments;
instead, they rely largely on pay-
checks in an era of at or falling
wages. For them, median income from
2000 to 2013 declined 11.2 percent,
from nearly $65,800 to $58,450.
Even positive news in the report is
overwhelmed by dismaying longer-
term trends. The poverty rate fell from
15 percent in 2012 to 14.5 percent in
2013, the rst meaningful year-to-
year decline in seven years. (The
poverty threshold for a family of four
in 2013 was $23,834.) But the rate is
still well above its levels of 12.5 per-
cent in 2007 and 11.3 in 2000. The
Center on Budget and Policy
Priorities has calculated that, at the
recent pace of poverty reduction, it
would take until 2020 for the rate to
fall below the level in 2000.
Similarly, poverty among children
fell from 2012 to 2013, but remains
above its levels in 2007 and 2000.
The improvement, such as it is,
appears to stem from a rise in the
employment and earnings of low-
income parents. That is, of course, a
positive sign in any recovery: When
jobs begin to grow, low-income
groups hit the hardest in the bad times
should show clear signs of a rebound.
It also means, however, that further
economic progress will depend on
even more jobs at even higher pay.
But several policy makers in
Congress and at the Federal Reserve
believe it is time to back off from
remaining stimulus policies. Federal
spending already has been cut, and
safety-net programs like federal job-
less benets have ended. The push
now is for the Fed to raise interest
rates using monetary policy not to
combat joblessness, which is real,
but to combat ination, which is not.
Progress toward economic health
has been and continues to be slow and
unreliable. Thats because the policy
response never was and probably
never will be commensurate with the
damage caused by the serial reces-
sions and poor recoveries since 2000.
State of the economy
Whats the big deal
about this November?
By Jonathan Madison
ake the single most important issue that matters to
you nationally, whether it is the ongoing war in
Iraq, the implementation of a controversial health
care law or the global threat posed by the Islamic State ter-
rorist group. Now, take the single most important issue
that matters to you locally from an increase in local
taxes to potholes in your neighborhood streets. I pose the
following question to you: Did you vote on one of the
national and/or local issues that matter to you in the last
November election cycle?
The answer is an important one, for it
reveals just how much we believe in the
capacity of our elected ofcials and
democratic government to deal with
these critical issues at both the national
and local level. More importantly, it
reveals just how much weight we
believe our votes actually carry in elec-
As referenced in a New York Times article, 238 years
ago, the famous story goes that after the Founding Fathers
met to discuss and draft the U.S. Constitution at
Independence Hall, a curious and elderly woman tugged at
Benjamin Franklins coat as he was boarding his carriage
in the streets of Philadelphia. The woman asked, What
government have you bequeathed us? Franklin replied, A
Republic if you can keep it.
Franklins last words indicate one message among others
to keep our democratic republic, a government in
which power is ultimately vested within each citizen, we
must each understand our duty and privilege within our
society to exercise our voice in the democratic process.
Franklins quote also suggests that there are no guarantees
of freedom or democracy for those who do not exercise
their voices in that process.
Just last week, I was speaking with a gentleman at a
local restaurant in Burlingame. The man expressed frustra-
tion with the gas tax proposed by majority members of the
California Legislature. His sentiments were honest and
heartfelt. I cant believe that elected ofcials are still con-
sidering raising taxes, he said. I feel buried in taxes
already. I then asked him if he planned to vote in the Nov.
4, 2014, election. His response Whats the point?
This mans response may come at some surprise to
many, but his sentiment should come as no surprise when
one considers the voter turnout in the state of California.
Just three months ago in the June 3 primary, less than 25
percent of registered voters cast their ballots statewide,
according to the Sacramento Bee. That means that more
than 75 percent of registered voters statewide likely have
the same sentiments as the man I met in the local restau-
Less than 20 percent of county residents cast ballots in
the June 3 primary. In essence, that means that more than
80 percent of county residents are not exercising the great-
est right, freedom and privilege granted to us in the U.S.
Constitution. The truth is that, regardless of the reasons
that people choose not to vote, there is a serious question
as to how much one can be concerned or complain about
policies when they have forfeited their right and opportu-
nity to have their voice considered in those policies.
This November, a number of issues face the Bay Area,
our state and country. The Bay Area faces serious choices
with regard to education reform; particularly transitioning
to the Common Core standards created by the federal gov-
ernment, thus changing the way academics are taught in
the classroom at the local level. The state faces the worst
drought since 1977, and continues to deal with a spike in
crime due to Assembly Bill 109 the states current
realignment program that shifts low-level offenders from
state to county jails. If thats not enough, our country con-
tinues to deal with the Islamic State militant group crisis,
posing a global threat to the safety of civilians.
I posed a question to you earlier. The answer to that ques-
tion is not as important as casting your vote this Nov. 4.
There are a number of great candidates for local govern-
ment ofce and measures on the ballot in which your vote
can make a difference.
You and I have an obligation, a duty if you will, to call
our locally elected ofcials, ask questions, demand
answers, report local issues and cast our votes in elections.
That, my friend, is the big deal behind November.

Big movers
By Matthew Craft
NEW YORK With Wall Street
focused on the debut of Alibaba
Group, the stock market drifted into
the weekend and major indexes ended
little changed.
Investors watched as the Chinese e-
commerce giant surged 38 percent
Friday, in its first day of trading on
the New York Stock Exchange.
Alibaba gained $25.89 to end at
$93. 89.
By the end of the day, the Standard
& Poor's 500 index fell less than a
point, a sliver of a percent, to
2,010.40. It finished with its best
weekly gain in a month.
Alibaba lined up its initial public
offering of stock at $68 a share the
day before, raising $21.8 billion
from investors. That vaulted Alibaba
to the top tier of technology compa-
nies in terms of market value. It's
bigger than but smaller
than the titans of tech, Apple and
"We know there's a lot of demand
from institutional and retail
investors, so it's not a surprise to see
it rally that quickly," said JJ
Kinahan, chief strategist at TD
Ameritrade, the online brokerage.
Alibaba was the big story Friday,
but the rest of the week belonged to
the Federal Reserve. At the end of a
two-day meeting on Wednesday, the
Fed issued a statement saying that it
planned to keep its benchmark lend-
ing rate low. Some investors had ear-
lier voiced concerns that the Fed
might be in a bigger hurry to hike
"Janet Yellen (the Fed's chair-
woman) told people exactly what
they wanted to hear," Kinahan said.
Encouraged, investors sent stocks
to record highs this week. The S&P
500 index has now climbed 9 percent

SAN FRANCISCO Yahoo is making
amends for years of blundering with one
smart move: an early investment in Alibaba
Group that has turned into a multibillion-
dollar boon.
The latest windfall came with Alibabas
record-setting IPO completed late Thursday,
in which the Chinese e-commerce giant
raised $25 billion. Alibabas shares began
trading for the rst time on Friday on the
New York Stock Exchange.
Yahoo is in line to make $8.3 billion to
$9.5 billion from the initial public offer-
ing, depending on whether investment
bankers exercise their right within the next
month to buy additional stock in the deal.
The payoff supplements the $7.6 billion
jackpot that Yahoo collected two years ago
after selling another chunk of its Alibaba
holdings and reworked a licensing agree-
ment with the company.
Even if Yahoo ends up selling its maxi-
mum allotment of 140 million shares in the
IPO, the Sunnyvale, California, company
will retain a roughly 16 percent stake in
Alibaba Group Ltd. worth another $36 bil-
lion to $38 billion.
Not a bad return, considering Yahoo
acquired its Alibaba stake for $1 bil-
lion in 2005 in a deal engineered by
company co-founder Jerry Yang and
former CEO Terry Semel.
The Alibaba investment has helped ease
the pain of Yahoos struggles in Internet
advertising, the heart of its business.
Yahoos annual revenue has slipped from a
peak of $7.2 billion in 2008 to a projected
$4.5 billion this year, a decline of nearly
40 percent.
The downturn has occurred even as adver-
tisers steadily shift more of their budgets to
the Internet and mobile devices, but most of
that money is owing to Yahoo rivals such
as Google Inc. and Facebook Inc. com-
panies that have built more compelling dig-
ital services.
Yahoo has gone through seven different
CEOs since 2006, including current leader
Marissa Mayer, trying to gure out how to
rejuvenate its growth.
Wall Streets exasperation with Yahoos
financial malaise caused the companys
stock to sink below $9 in late 2008. The
companys stock is now hovering around
$43, a level that hasnt been touched since
2006. Most of the comeback occurred dur-
ing the last two years as investors latched
on to Yahoos stock to prot from Alibabas
success leading up to the IPO.
Yahoo now must decide what to do with
the money that will pour in from Alibabas
IPO. Mayer has promised that at least half
the amount, after taxes, will be returned to
shareholders through dividends or, more
likely, buying back stock.

Carlmonts defense looked like it had turned
the tide of Fridays matchup with Homestead at
Bruce Usher Stadium.
Aspirited Carlmont defensive stop midway
through the fourth quarter wasnt enough
though, as the Scots (2-1) suffered their rst
loss of the season 21-13 at the hands of
Homestead (2-1).
Trailing 18-13 at the time, Carlmonts
defense hunkered in to give its offense the ball
at the Scots 42-yard line with 6 minutes, 42
seconds remaining in the game. Four plays
later though, just after crossing mideld,
Carlmont fumbled the snap from center which
Homestead recovered to crush the Scots
For the third week in a row we made mis-
takes that killed us, Carlmont head coach Rich
Gianuario said. But overall we played a hell of
a game. We played a hard game. This is a good
team. Dont take anything away from them.
The Scotsdefensive stand prior to the game-
changing fumble evidenced Gianuarios opti-
mism about his team. In a smash-mouth battle
of running games, Homestead was in the midst
of marching down eld, but after the Mustangs
moved the ball inside the Scots 25-yard line,
Carlmont junior linebacker Mark Bellin made
two epic stops.
On rst down, Bellin held Mustangs running
back Kylend Howard to two yards. Then on sec-
ond down, Bellin paired up with junior line-
backer Shanil Patel to drop Howard for a 2-yard
loss. On third down, Scots junior defensive
back Bruno Abinader chased down the speedy
quarterback Jerome Holloway to set up fourth-
and-four. Carlmont senior Antonio Baltondano
punctuated the drive with a veritable sack of
Holloway, as the defensive end stormed the
backeld to hit the Mustangsquarterback, who
unloaded a throw-away pass and was penalized
for intentional grounding; the resulting loss of
down turned the ball over to Carlmont.
Our defensive tackles stayed one yard and
they read the plays, Gianuario said. We didnt
want [Holloway] to run wild and I thought we
did a good job of that. So, that stop was just a
result of discipline and staying (home).
Following the Carlmont fumble, Homestead
got a pair of big gainers to move into the red
zone. The Scots defense again hunkered down

Woodsides Mitchell Cockrum celebrates his 11-yard scoring catch from Robert Wang
during the Wildcats 42-15 win over Sequoia Friday night.
By Nathan Mollat
The Sequoia football team started strong Friday night
in its game against Woodside.
After forcing the Wildcats to go three-and-out on the
rst possession of the game, the Cherokees took over at
their own 20 and marched 80 yards to take a 7-0 lead on a
Faavae Brown 2-yard plunge.
After that, it was all Woodside.
The Wildcats responded by scoring 42 unanswered
points as they dominated Sequoia in notching a 42-15
victory the rst-ever varsity win for Woodsides rst-
year coach Justin Andrews.
I would have like to have gotten it last time (during a
42-28 loss to Dublin in Week 1). But if it didnt happen
then, this is a pretty good one (to win), Andrews said.
And like any other coach, Andrews saw the little mis-
takes that will be addressed, but really, there wasnt much
not to like about Woodsides performance. The Wildcats
were about as balanced as a team can be offensively, rush-
ing for 202 yards and passing for 202 yards. Senior run-
ning back David Teu did the most damage, rushing for
225 yards and three touchdowns on 22 carries.
Teu got off to a slow start, being thrown for minus-3
yards on his rst two carries of the game. But he quickly
got into a rhythm and the Cherokees couldnt knock him
off his stride.
It was exciting. I was nervous, Teu said. Its a relief
(to beat Sequoia).
Teu scored on runs of 1, 38 and 35 yards.
Senior quarterback Robert Wang was equally effective
for Woodside (1-1). The second-year starter completed 14
of 25 passes for 197 yards and three touchdowns includ-
ing a 60-yarder to Anthony Pintarelli with 7:55 to play.
When those two (Teu and Wang) are playing well,
well be tough to stop, Andrews said.
The Woodside defense played just as well. The Wildcats
limited Sequoia (1-2) to just 203 yards of total offense
130 of which came in the rst half. They also came away
with ve Cherokees turnovers as well.
We got contributions from a lot of people,
Andrews said.
After Sequoia took a 7-0 lead, Woodside got into a
groove, answering right back with an 80-yard scoring
drive of its own. The drive culminated with Teu burrowing
into the end zone from a yard out to tie the score at 7.
The Wildcats then recovered a Sequoia fumble on its
next possession and quickly struck again with Wang
hooking up with Luis Cauich for a 21-yard scoring pass
for a 14-7 lead with 2:09 left in the rst quarter.

SAN DIEGO Tim Hudson had another
rough start, costing the San Francisco
Giants ground in the playoff chase and rais-
ing some big questions considering that his
next scheduled start is against Clayton
Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Hudson allowed four runs in the first
inning and the Giants were held to three hits
in a 5-0 loss to San Diego on Friday night
that dropped them 3 1/2 games behind the
Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West race.
The Giants lead in the wild-card race is
down to one game over Pittsburgh, but their
magic number to clinch a wild-card spot
dropped to four thanks to the Pirates 4-2
victory against Milwaukee. The Dodgers
won 14-5 at the Chicago Cubs.
Hudson (9-12) lost his third straight start,
guaranteeing the rst losing record in his
16-year big league career.
He allowed ve runs, four earned, on seven
hits in 4 1-3 innings, with two strikeouts
and two walks.
It wasnt as bad as Saturday night, when
Hudson had the worst start of his career, last-
ing just one inning plus two batters in a 17-
0 home loss to the Dodgers. He allowed six
runs and eight hits while making 35 pitch-
Hudson said he has condence he can x

night at Dodger Stadium.
Even though my last couple of starts
have been pretty bad, on paper I feel like I
havent been quite as bad as what those
innings have shown, Hudson said. Ive just
got to go out there and make a couple of
adjustments. I think theres a little bit of a
delivery thing going on that I have to work

The task wasnt easy for the Sacred Heart
Prep football team Friday afternoon, but it
was clear: the Gators would need to drive 99
yards and score a touchdown if they wanted
to beat Salinas Friday afternoon.
Trailing 2-19 with 1:58 to play, the nor-
mally run-heavy Gators threw a curveball at
the Cowboys. They unleashed quarterback
Mason Randall and he coolly and calmly led
SHP the length of the eld, capping the
drive with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Nick
ODonnell with nine seconds left. A2-point
conversion a Randall pass to tight end
Andrew Daschbach gave the Gators a 27-
21 lead.
And just to punctuate the win, Daschbach
dragged down Salinas quarterback Zach
McDermott for a 21-yard sack on the nal
play of the game.
Were a running football team. Were not
going throw the ball like this all the time.
We ran the ball pretty good, but they
(Salinas) were pretty tough, said SHP
coach Pete Lavorato. I just felt like we
needed to throw the ball to win the ball
Randall was more than happy to comply.
Asecond-year starter, the junior Randall had
the game of his life. He completed 27 of 34
passes for 363 yards and three touchdowns.
On the game-winning drive, Randall was
even better. After throwing an incomple-
tion of the rst play from the 1-yard line,
Randall completed his next nine passes,
shredding the Salinas secondary in the
[That performance] gives him (Randall) a
lot of condence, Lavorato said. I think
this was his coming out party. Hes a really
good athlete. He knows the game. Hes
always going to the right guy.
On the nal drive, Randall shared the
wealth between Mitch Martella, Riley
Tinsley, Daschbach and ODonnell.
Lavorato said the Cowboys were playing
man-to-man coverage on the wideouts so he
used ODonnell as a decoy several times,
going long to draw the defense out and
allow Randall to work the underneath
ODonnell still got his he nished
with six catches for 87 yards and two
scores. But Mitch Martella had a big game
as well. He caught four of his eight catches
on that last drive. Martella nished with
eight catches for 71 yards and a score.
The guy covering Mitch was good,
Lavorato said. But Mitch is really good.
The Randall-to-ODonnell touchdown
capped a game that saw SHP trail 9-0 at half-
time, despite outgaining Salinas 240 yard
to 172. The Gators drove up and down the
eld in the rst two quarters, but twice
turned the ball over on downs inside the 10
As well as an interception in the red zone
on a halfback pass attempt.
The Salinas offense was just as good, as
the Cowboys no-huddle offense and heavy
doses of running backs Bruce Leighton and
Jeremiah Garcia, along with some key runs
from McDermott, enabled the Cowboys to
match the Gators.
After a scoreless rst quarter, Salinas took
a 6-0 lead when McDermott kept the ball on
the read option and went into the end zone
from 18 yards out to cap an 11-play, 48-yard
After forcing Sacred Heart Prep to turn the
ball over on downs, Salinas drove from its
25 down to the Gators 26 before settling
for a 43-yard Ryan Jensen eld goal for a 9-
0 Cowboys lead.
The Gators had a chance to close their
decit, driving to the Cowboys 6-yard line
before being stopped at the 1 on fourth
Salinas went into the locker room with a
nine-point lead.
We just told the kids (at halftime) were
not going to change, Lavorato said. We
moved the ball well. We just couldnt
SHP nally nished their drives in the
second half. The Gators drove 68 yards on
nine plays on their rst drive of the third
quarter, culminating in a Randall to Martella
15-yard scoring pass to cut Salinas lead to
9-6. SHP forced the Cowboys to punt on
their rst possession of the second half and
before taking over at their own 46 and scor-
ing again. Facing a fourth-and-three,
Randall faked a handoff and dumped a pass
over the middle to Daschbach, who rumbled
46 yards for the score and a 13-9 SHP lead.
Salinas answered right back on its next
drive, methodically driving 64 yards on 14
plays, with McDermott going into the end
zone from 4 yards out for a 15-13 lead. The
Cowboys then forced a SHP fumble, recov-
ered it and promptly drove put together a
seven-play, 51-yard drive for a touchdown
and a 21-13 lead with 7:53 to play.
The Gators had an answer of their own,
scoring on fourth-and-goal on a Tinsley 3-
yard run to cut their decit to 21-19 with
3:28 left.
The SHP defense nally stood tall on
Salinas next possession, forcing the
Cowboys to punt from their own 43, which
they downed at the Gators 1, setting up
SHPs game-winning drive.
We did a little better in the second half
than the rst, Lavorato said.
Gators drive 99 yards to beat Salinas, 27-21
With offensive lineman Wyatt Welch providing protection, Sacred Heart Prep quarterback
Mason Randall rolls out for a pass. Randall had a career day in the Gators 27-21 win over
Salinas. The junior completed 27 of 34 passes for 363 yards and three touchdowns.

OAKLAND Jon Lester rediscovered his
curveball last year, and it has been a helpful
addition to an already impressive repertoire.
Coco Crisp had two hits and drove in a
run, supporting another strong outing by
Lester, and the Oakland Athletics defeated
the Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 on Friday
night to regain the top spot in the chase for
AL wild cards.
Its been a solid pitch for me all year,
Lester said of the curve. It has been in the
past but I lost it. During the second half last
year I kind of gured out how it works and
have been able to drop it in there.
Derek Norris and Eric Sogard also drove in
runs for Oakland, which moved a half-game
ahead of the Kansas City Royals, who were
beaten by the Detroit Tigers earlier Friday.
Ryan Howard hit a home run for the
Phillies, who have lost ve of six.
Lester (16-10) allowed one run and ve
hits in seven innings. He walked two and
struck out seven en route to his third con-
secutive win. Sean Doolittle, who blew a
save on Wednesday, pitched the ninth for
his 22nd save.
When you have something like that hap-
pen you want to get back out there as soon
as possible and get back to feeling good,
Doolittle said. It was so bad last time out,
it was easy to throw it out.
Lester has pitched at least six innings in
his past 18 games, including all 10 with the
As. He hasnt allowed more than three
earned runs during that span.
He pitches with a lot of emotion,
Doolittle said. Guys pick up on that and
feed on that. They see how committed he is
to what he does.
Phillies starter David Buchanan (6-8)
gave up three runs and six hits in 6 2-3
innings. He walked two and struck out six.
He got on a pretty good roll. His aggres-
siveness was really evident, Phillies man-
ager Ryne Sandberg said. Hes shown very
good improvement. Hes really making the
most of this opportunity. Hes come a long
way in a lot of ways.
Buchanan had allowed two earned runs or
fewer in each of his previous six starts.
Howard jumped on Lesters rst pitch of
the fourth inning for his 22nd homer, a
blast that sailed well over the center eld
Next up
Phi l l i es: Jerome Williams (3-2, 2.84)
will make his fth appearance and second
start against the Athletics this year on
Saturday. He is 5-5 vs. the As in 17 games,
including 10 starts.
At hl et i cs: Drew Pomeranz (5-4, 2.53)
makes his rst start since a spot outing Aug.
27 at Houston when the As used a sixth
starter to line up their pitchers for a series at
the Angels. He is in the rotation for the rst
time since June 16, when he fractured his
right hand. Pomeranz is taking Jason
Hammels spot in the rotation and will be
facing the Phillies for the rst time since
Lester gets As back to winning ways

right, but Alex Amarista hit a two-run double
into the gap in right-center. Cameron Maybin
hit a two-run single to center before he was
caught stealing to end the inning.
I felt pretty good today, actually, Hudson
said. It was just of those innings where I was
one pitch away from putting up a zero.
Amarista got a hit with bases loaded, 3-2
count; I had to come to him right there.
Obviously Im not making the kind of
pitches I need to make. Innings are not going
the way I want them to, especially early. I need
to make better pitches.
Said manager Bruce Bochy: That rst
inning he just got the ball up. He had two outs
there. If he had gotten out of that I think he
throws a nice game. The one pitch would have
been nice to get before the double. That
changed the whole at-bat. After that I thought
he settled down. The rst inning was tough
get two outs and give up four runs.
That wasnt the whole story, though. WE
couldnt do anything offensively. We had a
tough time getting anything going, Bochy
The Giants had only three base runners in
seven innings against Padres rookie
Odrisamer Despaigne (4-7). The Cuban defec-
tor walked Angel Pagan opening the game and
retired the next nine batters before allowing
Joe Paniks double just inside rst base lead-
ing off the fourth. Despaigne retired the next
eight batters before Panik singled to left with
two outs in the sixth. Despaigne struck out six
and walked one.
The Padres added an unearned run in the third
when Gyorko reached on a two-base throwing
error by third baseman Pablo Sandoval and
scored on Smiths double to right.
Every time I face a team like the Giants
with a pretty good lineup, I have to bring my
best game into it, Despaigne said through a
translator. They have so many good hitters
in the lineup that I cant afford to make too
many mistakes. I have a pretty good idea of
how to pitch to those guys. I have to make
sure I bring my Agame.
Despaigne dominates
The Padres right-hander improved to 2-0
with a 0.45 ERA in three starts against San
Francisco. Hes allowed only one earned run in
20 innings.
Tim Lincecum
The right-hander threw two perfect innings
in his fourth relief appearance since being
dropped from the rotation in late August.
That should really help his condence. I
thought he did a nice job, Bochy said.
Trainerss room
Giants: Pagan was back in the lineup after
missing three straight games with a bulging
disc in his back that was irritating a nerve.
Pagan came out of the game after striking out
in the sixth after his back tightened up.
Up next
Giants: RHP Yusmeiro Petit 5-4, 3.64
ERA), who took Lincecums spot in the rota-
tion, is scheduled to start Saturday night as he
tries to bounce back from a loss to Dodgers.

ing from the disabled list on Aug. 23.

Weekend Sept. 20-21, 2014 THEDAILYJOURNAL
delayed punishment of Rice, Adrian
Peterson and other players involved in
recent domestic violence cases. Less than
three weeks into the season, ve such cases
have made headlines.
Vikings star running back Peterson and
Carolina defensive end Greg Hardy are on a
special commissioners exemption list and
are being paid while they go through the
legal process. Arizona running back
Jonathan Dwyer was placed on the
reserve/non-football illness list, meaning
he cant play for the team again this season.
Ray McDonald, a defensive end for San
Francisco, continues to practice and play
while being investigated on suspicion of
domestic violence.
As these cases have come to light, such
groups as the National Organization of
Women and league partners and sponsors
have come down hard on the NFLto be more
responsive in dealing with them. Congress
also is watching to see how the NFL reacts.
Rice was initially suspended for two
games. After defending the punishment at
rst, Goodell admitted more than a month
later that he didnt get it right and
announced tougher penalties for future
domestic violent incidents.
Then when a video emerged of the assault
on his then-ancee, the Baltimore Ravens
cut the star running back and the league
banned him indenitely.
Goodell reiterated Friday that he didnt
believe anybody at the NFL had seen the
video before it was published by TMZ. The
Associated Press reported last week that a
law enforcement ofcial says he sent the
video to a league executive ve months ago.
Citing Rices appeal of his indenite sus-
pension, Goodell declined to specify Friday
how the players description of what hap-
pened was inconsistent with what the
video showed the commissioners reason
for changing his punishment.
The NFL asked former FBI director Robert
Mueller to conduct an investigation into the
leagues handling of the Rice case. The law
firm where Mueller is now a partner,
WilmerHale, has connections to the NFL.
Goodell insisted Friday that it wasnt a con-
ict of interest because Mueller himself has
not previously worked with the league.
Goodell acknowledged he has learned that
interviewing Rice and his now-wife togeth-
er is an inappropriate way to handle a
domestic violence case.
The commissioner declined to address
whether any women were involved in the
decision to suspend Rice for two games, but
conceded thats exactly what were con-
cerned about.
We didnt have the right voices at the
table, he added.
The NFL has since added domestic vio-
lence experts as consultants. It also
announced it is partnering with a domestic
violence hotline and a sexual violence
resource center.
Goodell said Friday that he will establish
a conduct committee. One of the key ques-
tions is how to balance the leagues desire
to take a stance against violent acts with
the due process of the legal system.
In a memo to the clubs late Thursday,
Goodell said that within the next 30 days,
all NFL and team personnel will participate
in education sessions on domestic violence
and sexual assault. The memo said the
league will work with the union in provid-
ing the information and tools to under-
stand and recognize domestic violence and
sexual assault.
The league will provide nancial, opera-
tional and promotional support to the
National Domestic Violence Hotline and the
National Sexual Violence Resource Center.

Police visited 49er
McDonald's home before arrest
SAN JOSE Police say they responded
to an argument at 49ers lineman Ray
McDonalds home in San Jose three months
before his arrest there on suspicion of
domestic violence.
According to a police
report released Thursday,
an engaged couple got
into an argument at the
home on May 25 during
which the woman
grabbed the mans gun
and held it at her side.
Police do not identify
the couple by name.
McDonald is known to
live at the address with his ancee.
The report says the woman did not make
any threats or point the rearm at the man.
San Jose police ofcer Albert Morales
tells the San Jose Mercury News
( the May case was
closed, and no charges were led.
McDonald was arrested in August. He has
not been charged.
Arizona's Stanton to start
at quarterback against 49ers
TEMPE, Ariz. Arizona coach Bruce
Arians says Drew Stanton will start at quar-
terback when the Cardinals play the San
Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
Arians says that if Carson Palmer is in
good enough condition, he will be the back-
up quarterback. But Arians says Palmer, out
with a nerve problem in his shoulder, still
is unable to throw a pass.
Stanton was the quarterback in Arizonas
25-14 road win over the New York Giants
last Sunday. It was the rst time he had
played in a regular-season game in four
After this week, Palmer will have some
time to heal because the Cardinals have a
bye next week.
Rookie Logan Thomas will be the backup
if Palmer cant ll that role.
Raiders could be down two starters
ALAMEDA Already staggering from
back-to-back poor performances, the
Oakland Raiders will likely be without two
of their starting linebackers for Sundays
game in New England.
Middle linebacker Nick
Roach is still recovering
from a concussion he suf-
fered during the presea-
son and has only recent-
ly returned to practice on
a limited basis. Roach,
who played every defen-
sive snap in 2013, has
yet to be cleared through
the NFLs protocol for
concussions and is questionable to play
against the Patriots.
Outside linebacker Sio Moore has already
been ruled out because of an ankle injury
suffered in last weeks loss to Houston.
The Raiders own the NFLs worst run
defense despite adding several key free
agents in the offseason. Theyve given up
400 yards on the ground, with breakdowns
coming across the board.
Gophers host San Jose State
MINNEAPOLIS Minnesota is back
home this weekend after a humbling loss.
The Gophers were beaten badly at TCU,
and already-hurting quarterback Mitch
Leidner suffered a turf toe injury in the
process. Leidner is considered questionable
to play Saturday against San Jose State. If
he's not deemed ready, Chris Streveler will
take his place.
With the Big Ten schedule waiting after-
ward, this is an important game for the
Gophers to use to get back on track. They
beat the Spartans 43-24 at home last year.
San Jose State is making its second
straight road trip to an opponent from one
of the ve major conferences. The Spartans
lost 59-13 at Auburn two weeks ago.

Weekend Sept. 20-21, 2014 THEDAILYJOURNAL
By Mike Fitzpatrick
NEW YORK It is July 19, 2003. Old
Timers Day at Yankee Stadium.
Derek Jeter and the New York Yankees are 59-
36 and four games up in the ALEast, headed to
their sixth of nine consecutive division titles.
At this moment, though, they trail the
Cleveland Indians by one run in the bottom of
the fth inning. Jeter has just hit an RBI sin-
gle with two outs, and the bases are loaded for
left-handed slugger Jason Giambi.
The inelders play Giambi to pull. The count
goes full and Cleveland ace CC Sabathia
prefers to stay in the windup, giving all three
Yankees on base a running start as he unfolds
his 6-foot-7, 290-pound frame for a slow deliv-
ery to the plate.
Jeter takes off in an all-out sprint from rst
as Sabathia rocks and res on an 81-degree
Foul ball.
Alfonso Soriano is on second, and Jeter
playfully tells his teammate hes going to
catch him. He returns to the bag and bolts
again, full speed, with the next pitch.
Foul ball.
Jeter has one thing in mind, and he says to
rst base coach Lee Mazzilli: Im going to
score on a single.
Lo and behold, Giambi hits a bouncer up the
middle. Ahustling Jeter is just about rounding
second by the time bat meets ball and he scores
easily with a feet-rst slide for a 6-4 lead.
Its a rare three-run single for Giambi, and
New York goes on to a 7-4 victory.
More than a decade later, Giambi is asked if
he recalls the play. He does not. Neither does
former catcher John Flaherty, the runner on
third that day and now a Yankees broadcaster.
Jeter remembers right away.
Yup Giambi. CC was pitching, he said
last week. I remember that because he fouled
off a couple pitches. I told the rst base coach,
Im going to score on a single.
And why did he enjoy that savvy bit of
baserunning so much?
All the little things, Jeter said.
Instincts. Anticipation. Effort.
For a Hall of Fame-bound star who authored
so many of the most famous moments in
recent baseball history, who shined so bright
under an October spotlight, Derek Jeter also
was dened by his everyday excellence
throughout the summer.
His steady hands at shortstop. The feisty at-
bat to spark a rally with an opposite-eld sin-
gle. The multimillion dollar icon who would-
nt hesitate to bunt.
And then, of course, there were the high-
lights nobody will forget:
A helping hand
After hitting a home run in Cleveland on his
rst opening day en route to Rookie of the Year
honors, Jeter quickly takes center stage in the
postseason. In the AL championship series
opener against Baltimore, he hits an eighth-
inning drive to right eld at Yankee Stadium. A
young fan reaches out and gets his glove on
the ball, pulling it over the fence for a tying
homer that turns 12-year-old Jeffrey Maier into
an instant celebrity. The Orioles are livid, but
umpire Rich Garcia does not rule fan interfer-
ence this was long before instant replay in
baseball. New York goes on to win the game
and eventually its rst World Series title in 18
Subway series surprise
In the rst Subway Series since 1956, the
New York Mets win Game 3 at Shea Stadium to
pull to 2-1 and halt the Yankees record 14-
game winning streak in World Series play.
Yankees manager Joe Torre moves Jeter up to
the leadoff spot for Game 4, and Jeter stuns
everyone with a home run on the rst pitch of
the night from Bobby Jones. The Yankees go
on to win their third consecutive champi-
onship and fourth in ve years. Jeter is select-
ed World Series MVP to go with his All-Star
MVPaward earlier that season.
The ip
With the Yankees facing playoff elimination
in Oakland and clinging to a 1-0 lead in the
seventh inning, Terrence Long doubles into
the right-eld corner with two outs and a runner
on rst. New York right elder Shane Spencer
overthrows two cutoff men, but Jeter dashes
from the middle of the diamond to grab the ball
on a hop along the rst-base line. He quickly
shovels a backhand ip to catcher Jorge
Posada in time to tag out Jeremy Giambi, who
does not slide at the plate. While most every-
one is amazed by Jeters heads-up play, he says
he was simply where he was supposed to be.
The Yankees rally to win the series and roll to
their fourth straight pennant.
Oct.31 and Nov.1,2001
After the 9-11 attacks push the World Series
beyond October for the rst time, New York
pulls off a pair of incredible comebacks
against Arizona on consecutive nights at
Yankee Stadium. Jeter nishes the rst one
with a game-ending homer off Byung-Hyun
Kim in the 10th inning, just after midnight on
Halloween earning him the nickname Mr.
July 1,2004
The dive
The score is tied in the top of the 12th inning
at Yankee Stadium when Jeter runs down Trot
Nixons popup near the left-eld line to save
two runs. With no way to stop his momentum in
time, he dives headlong over a low retaining
wall and crashes into the stands. Jeter emerges
with the ball, his face badly bruised and blood-
ied, before heading to a hospital for X-rays. New
York rallies in the 13th to complete a three-
game sweep of rival Boston, and Jeter is back at
shortstop the next night. The courageous play
comes just more than a year after Jeter is
appointed the 11th captain in Yankees history.
The speech
Admittedly nervous about public speaking
when he was young, Jeter takes a microphone
and closes The House That Ruth Built with a
farewell speech following the nal game at the
original Yankee Stadium. Surrounded by team-
mates, he tells the 54,610 fans on hand,
Every member of this organization, past and
present, has been calling this place home for
85 years. Theres a lot of tradition, a lot of his-
tory, and a lot of memories. ... Were relying
on you to take the memories from this
Stadium, add them to the new memories that
come at the new Yankee Stadium and continue
to pass them on from generation to genera-
tion. Playing in their new ballpark the next
year, the Yankees win their 27th champi-
onship, giving Jeter ve World Series rings.
July 9,2011
Less than two years after breaking Lou
Gehrigs franchise record for hits, Jeter is feel-
ing pressure to get No. 3,000 before the end of
New Yorks homestand. Always with a air for
the dramatic, he reaches the milestone with a
home run off Tampa Bay ace David Price, join-
ing Wade Boggs as the only players to homer
for their 3,000th hit. Jeter nishes 5 for 5 in
the Yankees victory with a go-ahead single in
the eighth inning.

Kershaw tabs win No. 20
CHICAGO Clayton Kershaw became
the majors rst 20-game winner and A.J.
Ellis hit a pair of two-run homers, leading
the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 14-5 victory
over the Chicago Cubs on Friday.
Kershaw (20-3)
pitched five shaky
innings in his shortest
start in 3 1/2 months,
but the NL West-leading
Dodgers roughed up
Edwin Jackson on their
way to a 13-hit attack
that included four
homers. Matt Kemp hit a
three-run shot in Los
Angeles six-run first,
and Yasiel Puig added another three-run
homer in the sixth.
The Dodgers improved baseballs best
road record to 48-31 and will clinch a post-
season berth if Milwaukee loses in
Pittsburgh on Friday night. They began the
day with a 2 1/2-game lead over San
Francisco in the division.
Los Angeles batted around during its
biggest rst inning of the season. Kemps
drive to left was his sixth homer this month
and No. 22 on the year. Ellis went deep for his
second homer of the season.Ellis connected
against Eric Jokisch again in the third for
his second career multihomer game.
Kershaw struck out nine in his sixth con-
secutive win. The left-hander, a prohibitive
favorite for his second consecutive NL Cy
Young Award, is 17-1 with a 1.39 ERAin his
last 20 starts.
Kershaw had pitched at least eight
innings in each of his previous seven out-
ings. But he never looked comfortable in
his second career start at Wrigley Field. He
walked three, matching a season high, and
also hit a batter.
Sports brief
By Josh Dubow
SAN JOSE Atumultuous offseason that
featured a rehash of a historic playoff col-
lapse, talk of rebuilding and questions about
the leadership on and off the ice has merci-
fully come to an end for the San Jose Sharks.
The Sharks returned to practice Friday for
the opening of training camp, looking to
put that playoff loss to Los Angeles in the
past and build a new kind of team even if it
contains most of the same players.
After becoming just the fourth NHL team
to lose a best-of-seven series after winning
the rst three games, the Sharks entered a
new phase with general manager Doug
Wilson talking about rebuilding and calling
the franchise a "tomorrow" team after near-
ly a decade of being a
perennial Stanley Cup
But that doesn't mean
the players have altered
their high expectations.
"That's Doug's opin-
ion," forward Joe
Thornton said. "I think if
you'd ask anybody in here
I don't think they have
the same feeling. We're condent with this
group. Just ask these guys, I think we're
pretty condent we can get the job done."
The Sharks open camp without a captain or
alternates as coach Todd McLellan has given
everyone a clean slate and at least temporari-
ly taken the "C'' and "A'' off the jerseys of
Thornton and Patrick
Marleau, respectively.
While Marleau and
Thornton could regain let-
ters, it appears more likely
that some of the younger
players will take that role or
that the responsibility will
be rotated this year.
"That was done because
a number of individuals
spoke at the end of the
year," McLellan said.
"And if they had a voice at
the end of the year, why
didn't they have it during
the year. We're opening it
up. If you're prepared to
speak after, it's time to
speak up during. It's not an indictment of
Joe and Patty though it's turned into that
because of their 'clean slate' if you will."
Marleau had the captaincy taken from him
ve years ago after the Sharks lost in the
rst round of the playoffs despite being the
top team in the regular season.
He doesn't see the demotion changing
Thornton at all."Obviously you don't like
seeing something like that happen,"
Marleau said. "It doesn't change what he
brings to the group, it's just a patch. He's
still going to be a leader. He doesn't neces-
sarily need that. He's going to do the same
things. I look at him as a leader, so it does-
n't change my point of view of him and it
shouldn't change a lot of people's point of
view. "
The team is seeking a larger leadership
group than in the past where much of the
responsibility, and blame, often fell on the
team's two highest-prole players.
To help heal any divide in the locker room,
the players recently took a group trip to
Tahoe, where they could put last season in
the past and focus on the upcoming season.
"There's a lot that happened off the ice,
but nobody was talking about why we lost,"
defenseman Marc Edouard-Vlasic said. "If
you want to win, you got to win on the ice.
You can x everything off the ice, but if
you're not willing to put the effort in on the
ice, there's no point."
The change in leadership will be one of
the biggest this season for the Sharks,
whose most notable offseason addition was
enforcer John Scott, who has 430 penalty
minutes and six points in 236 games.
Defenseman Dan Boyle, forward Marty
Havlat and defenseman Brad Stuart all left
either through trades or compliance buyouts,
but 15 of the 17 players who got the most ice
time last season are back this season.

to prevent a touchdown, but with just
over one minute remaining in the
game, Homesteads John Rak booted
his second eld goal of the game
this one from 29 yards out to stake
the Mustangs to an 8-point lead.
Bellin said the Carlmont
defense was plenty energized
despite having to get back onto
the eld just over a minute after
making the previous stand.
We were all enthusiastic, for lack
of a better word, Bellin said. We
were ready to go out and push it back
Ultimately, Homestead won the
battle of ground games. The
Mustangs outgained Carlmont in
total rushing yards 279-231, with a
75-yard touchdown run by
Homestead senior Ryan Allemandi in
the third quarter being the difference
Two plays previous to the big run,
Carlmont had taken a 13-12 lead on a
6-yard touchdown run by Shanil Patel
with just over three minutes remain-
ing in the third quarter. But after
Carlmonts Mike How recorded a sack
on the rst play of the ensuing drive,
Allemandi exploited a hole off right
tackle for the games top run. All told,
Allemandi paced all rushers with 128
yards on nine carries, with 104 of his
yards coming in the second half.
In the rst half, Homestead
marched downeld to kick a eld goal
on the rst series of the game, with
Rak booting a 34-yarder to give the
Mustangs a 3-0 lead.
Carlmont couldnt move the ball
on its rst two possessions. The
Scots rst drive went four-and-out.
The second possession ended even
quicker on quarterback Boston
Funks interception chuck. But
Homestead fumbled the ball right
back, with Carlmont taking over at
its own 46-yard line. The Scots
looked like a different team on their
third series, marching 54 yards on
eight plays to score on a 1-yard Funk
sneak to take a 6-3 lead.
The pendulum swung back
Homesteads way with three-and-a-
half minute remaining in the half
though. Mustangs junior Sebastian
Knoefel blasted a 1-yard draw into the
end zone to give the Mustangs a 10-6
lead. Then Homestead added a safety
on Carlmonts nal possession of the
half when Funk was called for inten-
tional grounding in the end zone to
give Homestead a 12-6 halftime lead.
First-half penalties loomed large,
as the Scots were tagged with 10 yel-
low ags for 91 yards in the half.
Overall, Carlmont was penalized for
101 yards in the game.
With 1 minute, 23 minutes remain-
ing in the fourth quarter, Carlmont
tried one last ditch effort from its own
28-yard line with Funk heaving a
pass downeld. The throw was picked
off by Homesteads Rak for Funks
second interception of the game. The
Scots essentially featured a ground-
only attack, as Funk was 0 for 3 pass-
ing with two interceptions.
[Ten] penalties in the rst half
killed us and not being able to pass
right now is really hurting us,
Gianuario said.
Carlmont running backs Dakota
Regan and Berto Ruiz tied for the
team rushing lead with 59 yards
It was a good ght, Bellin said.
We made a lot mistakes. Made some
good plays, made some bad plays.
Just an overall good ght.

The Sequoia defense buckled down and held
Woodside in check for most of the second quar-
ter, but the Wildcats took a two-touchdown lead
into halftime when Wang hit Mitchell Cockrum
from 11 yards out to put Woodside up 21-7 with
13 seconds left in the opening half.
Late in the third quarter, Woodside extended
its lead to 28-7. Following an interception
from Dylan Maynard, the Wildcats needed ve
plays to cover 49 yards, with Teu blasting his
way to a 38-yard score.
Woodsides Josh Villanueva jump-started his
teams next scoring drive with a interception
and two plays later, Teu bolted into the end zone
from 35 yards out to put the Wildcats up 35-7.
The icing on the cake for Woodside came on
its next drive as Wang found Pintarelli streaking
down the left sideline. Wang arced a perfect pass
that hit Pintarelli in stride and he glided into the
end zone for a 60-yard score.
Sequoia nally put a drive together late in the
fourth quarter, going 67 yards on seven plays,
capped by a Sione Tuivailala 8-yard run.
We now want to build off this, Andrews

t felt like a blink of an eye; Im now a
senior at Carlmont High School. I
remember my rst day of school. I
didnt know where any of my classes were
and I didnt know what to expect.
Everywhere I walked, I
heard upperclassmen
scofng and giving
looks to my rather loud
friends. I knew what they
were thinking: freshmen
are clueless. And in a
sense, theyre right.
Most freshmen are
likely to walk into a
classroom, scan the room and not see any
familiar faces and in dismay think: who
could I see myself being friends with?
Youve probably done this before; you
see a boy with eyeglasses reading and label
him as a nerd. Sometimes, you take a
step further and conclude he is probably
anti-social because he is reading a book at
lunch. Oftentimes, this isnt the case.
Instead, you should strive to remove your
prejudices and expose yourself to different
Ahard thing to accept is that your best
friend since rst-grade may not be the same
person even by the end of your freshmen
year. Usually, its not a dramatic split; you
two just grow apart because of different
interests and schedules. Its not a bad
thing; in high school, you are going to be
friends with the people you see more often
in class or in extracurricular activities.
Another important thing to realize as a
freshman is that your plan may not go
exactly as you wanted. Before freshman
year, I planned to play competitive volley-
ball, play the clarinet through high school
and take as many advanced courses as I
could. Most of these things didnt turn out
the way I expected. Instead, I became
involved in journalism and DECAclub,
which helped me solidify my career plan.

Although An Audience With Meow
Meow is billed as a new musical play, its
primarily a cabaret act.
Presented by Berkeley Repertory Theatre
in its world premiere, the show was written
by its star, Meow Meow. Shes an
Australian-born performance artist whose
real name is Melissa Madden Gray.
Directed by Emma Rice, the 90-minute,
intermissionless show starts with lots of
glitz as Meow Meow and two male dancers,
Michael Balderrama and Bob Gaynor, per-
form a few songs. Before long, though, she
and they get into battles that end with the
two men limping off stage.
Over time, stage managers tell her that
she has to leave, but she refuses, insisting
that shes a professional. They gradually
strip the stage of its colorful trappings and
then turn off the lights.
Ever resourceful, she goes up an aisle,

Tracks leaves a mark
By Jake Coyle
The movies, it seems, are increasingly headed down
paths in the woods, out to open water and, in the
case of John Currans excellent new lm
Tracks, into the deepest reaches of the
Australian desert.
Surely our desire to disconnect, to
feel the harshness of nature and the
quiet of solitude feeds into the
appeal of lms like last years
near-wordless sea adventure All
Is Lost with Robert Redford or
the upcoming Wild, in which
Reese Witherspoon hikes the
Pacific Coast Trail. But while
those movies have their attributes, Ill
take Tracks for the way it subtly and
unsentimentally builds emotionally, step
by step, across 1,700 miles.
Thats the distance traveled by Robyn
Davidson (played by Mia Wasikowska),
whose journey was chronicled by
National Geographic. She then wrote an
acclaimed 1980 memoir, Tracks, about
the trip in which she and her dog, Diggity,
with four camels in tow, trekked across the
Western Australian desert, ending at the
Indian Ocean.
Its a mad journey that earns her the
moniker Camel Lady and turned her into a
reluctant celebrity. Tracks gradually
unspools why shes spending half a year alone
and in the harshest of conditions, lling in with
ashbacks to her mothers suicide and the simulta-
neous and (to the young Robyn) equally devastat-
ing loss of her childhood dog.
And this, despite the camels, is a movie for the
dogs. Rarely has there been a more affecting por-
trait of a girl and her pup. On her trip, Robyn, in an
uncharacteristic moment of affection, sleeps with
the photographer (Adam Driver) despite his cease-
less yammering. But he has nothing on Diggity, the
Mia Wasikowska carries film through the desert and into the heart

AN ASIDE: A.C.T. Artistic Director
Carey Perloff said, Bill and David are not
just funny guys; they are truly anthropolo-
gists of clowning. Their insatiable curiosi-
ty about the art of comedy has led to deep
investigations of physical humor, silent
movies, art and technology and the comic
and not-so-comic effects of getting older
inside a clowns body. Physical comedy has
a long and distinguished tradition in the
Bay Area, and we look forward to carrying
that on with Old Hats.
Irwin helped found the Pickle Family Circus
in San Francisco. Irwin, best known for his
vaudeville-style stage performances and
noted for his contribution to the rebirth of
American circus during the 1970s, won a
Tony Award for his role in Whos Afraid of
Virginia Woolf on Broadway. Children
know him as Mr. Noodle on Sesame Streets

Cast cant
save sappy
Leave You
By Jocelyn Noveck
Somebody dies. Family gathers to mourn. Everybodys
stuck in one house, with all their quirks and foibles and
enough emotional baggage to ll an aircraft carrier. What
could go wrong? Ha ha. What couldnt?
This scenario could be a drama or a comedy or, in the
case of This Is Where I Leave You, both: a dramedy. In the
best dramedies, of course, laughter and tears alternate seam-
lessly and gracefully, and you leave both entertained and
Alas, this isnt that lm.
Instead, This Is Where I Leave You, directed by Shawn
Levy and adapted from Jonathan Troppers novel by the
author himself, seems to be constantly questioning or
doubting what it is. Which means that just when it enters
into some meaty issues that deserve serious treatment, it
gets nervous and falls into forced comedy or full-on slap-
stick. Which can get grating.
And its a shame, because the lm has an A-list ensemble
cast, headed by Jason Bateman and Tina Fey, but also featur-
ing nice work from Jane Fonda, Connie Britton, Adam
Driver, Rose Byrne, Corey Stoll, Debra Monk and more. A
cast like that deserves an A-list movie; they got maybe a
solid B.
Bateman plays Judd Altman, a radio producer with a pretty
wife and an even prettier Manhattan apartment. But he
arrives home one afternoon and nds the wife bonking his
own boss.
This obviously throws Judd for a loop, but then he gets
even graver news: His father has died. He rushes to the sub-
urban homestead, where Mom (Fonda) awaits her four chil-
dren with a rm requirement: They will honor Dads dying
wish to follow Jewish ritual and sit shiva grieving
together, with guests for seven days.
This pleases no one, especially Wendy (Fey), Judds
sharp-tongued, bossypants sister, or the other brothers,
Paul (Stoll), the mature one, who stayed home to run the
family business, and Phillip (Driver), the immature one,
who cant get settled in life.
Fonda has fun here as an uninhibited child psychologist
who became famous for a book years ago that spilled her
familys secrets. She loves talking about sex, which embar-
rasses her family no end, and also loves showing off her
very prominent boob job.
Once everyones together, things can start to fall apart.
Judd wants to keep his impending divorce a secret, but
By Mike Cidoni Lennox
LOS ANGELES In the new big-
screen adaption of the best-selling
Jonathan Topper novel This Is Where
I Leave You, Tina Fey and Jason
Bateman portray siblings with tight
ties that bind.
Just minutes after sitting down with
the actors recently as they promoted
the sprawling ensemble dramedy,
opening Friday, it was clear that Fey,
44, and Bateman, 45, had developed a
real-life rapport, as well. Asampling:
Bateman: If its chemistry, I guess
thats what they call it but, we just
... shes a nice lady.
Fey: (trying to annoy Bateman by
immediately repeating his words in a
low mumble): Anice lady ...
Bateman: She knows how to ...
Fey: I know how to ...
Bateman: ... remember her lines ...
Fey: ... remember her lines.
Bateman: And shes really easy on
the eyes.
Fey: I wasnt going to say that!
Thank you.
Bateman: Its a great combo.
Fey: But it is, for me, maybe its
such a relief yeah, for me, its a
lovely relief to have nice chemistry
on screen and know that I never have
to do fake make out. Because its nice
to play brothers and sisters.
Bateman: Although, there are some
very progressive families in the indie
world. This is a nice studio comedy.
AP: Lets tal k about two of the
l ms other bi g stars: the Jane
Fonda characters breas t s .
Bateman: They hit their mark.
Fe y: Well, Jane Fondas (actual)
breasts dont appear in the movie.
Bateman: No.
Fe y: Theyre behind (prosthetic
Bateman: They stayed in the trail-
Fey: We couldnt get them.
Bateman: She really enjoyed
everything that todays special-
effects crews can do for someone and I
think she may still have them. I think
she kept them, I think she took them
Fe y: She has special Tupperware
built for them.
AP: There i s very l i ttl e di rt t o
be found on the two of you. The
best I could come up with was a
Vani ty Fai r pi ece on how you
(Bateman) wont play Scrabble
wi t h Ti na anymore because she
kept wi nni ng.
Fey: We played on set. We played
on our phones.
Bateman: It was Words Wi t h
Fey: Words With Friends, which
is a rip off of Scrabble, and I feel like
we should just acknowledge that.
Bateman: They moved the bonus
squares around on the board, so they
dont get sued.
AP: The two of you are s o
funny together, I see another
screen teami ng on the hori zon
here .
Fey: This is the rst two-straight-
person comedy team: Hardy and Hardy.
Bateman: Yeah, which means you
can double up on the crazy characters
around you, if youve got two straight
men. Thats what we are.
Fey: If we make a movie, it should
be me, you, Melissa (McCarthy) and
Jim Carrey, and its called

crazy fun.

Liam Neeson in
action again in
By Frank Scheck
LOS ANGELES Its not for nothing that the names of
Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe are reverentially referenced
in writer-director Scott Franks adaptation of the 10th novel
in Lawrence Blocks long-running, best-selling series fea-
turing unlicensed private eye Matthew Scudder. Distinctly
and proudly old-fashioned in its retro, lm noir vibe, A
Walk Among the Tombstones is notable for its dark atmos-
pherics and strong performance by Liam Neeson in the lat-
est example of his unlikely late career transformation into
an action hero.
Scudder is a terric character, whose casting choice its cre-
ator heartily approved, expertly embodies with his usual
physically commanding presence and world-weary gravitas.
The lms tense 1991-set opening scene efciently pro-
vides the characters backstory as an alcoholic NYC cop
who gave up the booze and the badge when his shootout
with some bad guys on the streets of New York City went
tragically awry. Cut to 1999, when hes working as unli-
censed private investigator who explains that I do favors
for people. in return they give me gifts.
Enlisted by fellow AA meeting attendee and drug addict
Peter (Boyd Holbrook), Scudder reluctantly takes a case
involving Peters prosperous drug-dealing brother Kenny
(Dan Stevens, in a sharp departure from his heartthrob role
in Downton Abbey), whose wife was kidnapped and
returned dead despite his having paid a $400,000 ransom.
Kenny demands that Scudder nd the culprits and bring them
to him for retribution that clearly doesnt involve the legal
After the discovery of another female victim, this time
left in pieces in trash bags in a park in Brooklyns historic
Greenwood Cemetery, the trail eventually leads to a pair of
serial killers (David Harbour, Adam David Thompson) who
target criminals so as to avoid their getting the authorities
involved. After discovering their identity from the ceme-
terys groundskeeper (a very creepy Olafur Darri Olafsson),
Scudder pursues the sociopathic duo with the unlikely help
of TJ (Brian Astro Bradley), a homeless black teenager
who aspires to being a gumshoe himself.
Things come to a head after the kidnapping of the young
daughter of a Russian drug dealer (Sebastian Roche), with
Scudder getting directly involved in the ensuing negotia-
tions. The lms nal act, featuring violent set pieces in a
basement and the spooky nighttime environs of the ceme-
tery, ratchets up the action considerably.
At one point Scudder explains to his young apprentice
that the main attribute a private eye must possess is a
strong bladder. Viewers may need one as well to get
through the lms dull middle section, lled with long,
talky patches in which nothing much really happens. The
compensation is that Neesons emotionally reticent hero is
consistently engaging and refreshingly vulnerable, prefer-
ring to talk his way out of tense situations.
Director Frank clearly has an afnity for the material,
investing the proceedings with a darkly compelling atmos-
phere that recalls the best noirs of the 1940s and 1950s.
The lm benets greatly from having been shot in various
seedy NYC neighborhoods not to mention the spooky
gothic cemetery that inspires the title with cinematogra-
pher Mihai Malaimare, Jr. (The Master) delivering a
desaturated color palette accentuating the overall gloomi-
At times the convoluted plotting proves too baroque for
its own good, and the subplot involving Scudders mentor-
ing of the sassy teen, who we eventually learn suffers from
sickle-cell anemia, is both silly and distracting. The cli-
mactic shootout is marred by a too-fussy staging employ-
ing freeze frames and a juxtaposition of the tenants of the
12-Step program.

So, be exible and more open-minded.
Seek out opportunities made available to
you; high schools have a ton of clubs,
sports and organizations for you to try out.
You could discover a new passion and make
new friends in the process.
After freshman year, people expect to
have a high school experience like the
movies. Since most are turning 16, many
imagine cruising to the beach on a random
day with all their friends and the windows
rolled down and music blasting.
However, I found that the transition from
freshman to sophomore year is not an easy
one and not at all as glamorous as I expect-
ed. When you are a freshman, teachers and
even your parents are easier on you because
they know how tough it is to adjust to a
completely new environment.
By sophomore year, you are expected to
get serious. The workload gets more dif-
cult and people start asking a question you
will hear over and over again: What do you
want to do after high school? This is an
ideal time to start thinking about college
and a career. Start doing your research now.
By junior year, classes, internships and job
opportunities get more specialized, so
youre ahead if you know what track you
want to pursue.
The last three years have been lled with
late nights studying for seemingly endless
tests and anxiously thinking to myself,
When would high school end?
The most ironic part is that I want senior
year to go by slowly. If you think about it,
high school is really your last years of
childhood. So enjoy while you can; the
four years truly go by quickly.

black lab whom she tenderly and far more
contentedly shares her bed with.
Curran, who has an old-fashioned touch
for the intimate adventure, is at his best
finding the slower rhythms of exotic
locales, like the colonial Far East of his
W. Somerset Maugham adaptation, The
Painted Veil. And while Curran and cine-
matographer Mandy Walker give the film
an elegant emptiness, Tracks is as much
in Wasikowskas fretful eyes as it is the
beautifully barren desert.
As Drivers Rick Smolan says, she has a
problem with people. The desert pulls her
as an escape from the malaise of her gen-
eration and as a refugee away from humans,
altogether. When friends visit her shortly
before she departs, she cringes at the
cacophony of their conversation and bris-
tles at having her photograph taken.
Shes idolized for the romance of her
intrepidness, but for Davidson, its a nec-
essary withdrawal from society. She toler-
ates the company of few besides Diggity
and her camels, like the Aboriginal elder
Mr. Eddie (the charming Roly Mintuma),
who guides her through sacred territory.
Wasikowska, the enormously talented
actress of Jane Eyre and a recent sand
storm of films including Only Lovers Left
Alive and Maps to the Stars, plays
Davidson with greasy, mussed hair and her
dusty hands shoved into her pockets. Later
on the journey, her skin is scorched from
the sun. Flies buzz around her.
Its a performance of rugged strength,
and she powerfully carries Tracks
through the desert and into the heart. But
maybe the secret to Tracks what sepa-
rates it from other recent cinematic feats of
isolation like Gravity isnt just
Wasikowska or Currans fluid directing.
Its got something else the other tales
dont: a dog, a movies best friend.
Tracks, a Weinstein Co. release, is
rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture
Association of America for thematic ele-
ments, some partial nudity, disturbing
images and brief strong language.

Its the scenes of over-obvious mayhem
or ultra-thick sappiness that ulti-
mately hurt an appealing film. Does every
conflict have to involve people screaming
and shouting, then falling over each other

brothers end up getting high together, in
an inappropriate place. They just sit there
and laugh loudly. It feels totally fake.
Thats not to say the film isnt often
enjoyable. Its a pleasure to watch pros
like these interact. But at one point, after
a particularly silly brawl, poor Wendy asks
if everyone can just act more normal. And
shes right. It would have made for a more
interesting film.

keep it, but to keep it viable. However, its
abundantly clear from the arborists report
that the tree is not structurally sound and is
in danger of falling over or breaking apart.
Because of its size and proximity to the
street and to pedestrians, this tree poses a
public safety hazard that we do not believe
can reasonably be solved, short of
Minor sees saving the tree as vital, how-
ever, and is hoping if the city cant save it,
it can at least open a dialogue to replant
native oaks to replace ones that are dying.
Its a 200-year-old oak and it needs to
stay up, she said while sitting in the tree.
Its a treasure of the community and we
cant afford to lose it. I am tree sitting
today. I love this oak tree. Everybody loves
this tree and theyre so important to the
She noted its amazing how everyone has
a personal connection to the tree. She

Theres ways to keep it up by girding it
up with steel girders or beams or by prun-
ing the long branches back, she said. Or
put a structure around it to let it die natural-
l y.
Still, Smith said the city is very proud
and protective of the urban forest its been
able to maintain throughout the communi-
t y. Unfortunately, he said, in some cases a
tree becomes diseased or damaged to the
point where it becomes a safety hazard, and
the only prudent and viable option is
removal and replacement.
I can assure you that removal is always
the last resort when it comes to the city
street trees, which are such an important
part of our communitys neighborhoods,
Smith said.
Others like Annika Jimenez, who kicked
off the little experiment Thursday by hang-
ing around the trunk bright pink hearts
with messages We Will Miss You and
RIP Beautiful Tree and adding some ow-
ers, understands where the city is coming
from, but she doesnt believe every option
has been exhausted prior to making a call
to chop the tree down.
I think we need more transparency in the
process especially where such a beauti-
ful, loved, landmark is concerned, she
wrote in an email. This morning, I woke
up and went to get coffee at 6:30 a.m.,
drove by the tree to check on it, and lo and
behold, Gwen was already up there. Asister
in peaceful resistance!
Others like Richard Kelly, a resident of
the area since 1980, said its a nice tree, but
he understands the citys decision given
that its rotting.
Its kind of an iconic tree, he said.
Everybody knows the old oak tree. Its
unfortunate, but I think the tree should have
a decent sendoff.

Midway through Destiny, the new sci-
ence fiction epic from Halo creators
Bungie, a smug prince is musing on the
heros desire to visit a mysterious site on
You want to turn it into a battleground,
the prince sneers. How unimaginative.
Its exactly the thought that nagged me
when I was playing Destiny (Activision,
for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox
360, PlayStation 3, $59.99). Its an ambi-
tious project for Bungie, creating several
gorgeous, radically different worlds to
explore. But your goal is always the same:
Go kill everybody.
Of course, thats been the mission state-
ment of most sci- games since Halo rst
stormed the planets in 2001, propelling hit
series like Gears of War, Borderlands
and Killzone. Destiny seemed to prom-
ise something more but, if anything, its
a setback from Halo, which at least pro-
vided compelling motivation for all the
Destiny takes place in the far future,
long after an alien Traveler arrived in the
solar system and helped humans colonize
other planets. Unfortunately, the Traveler
was followed by a Darkness determined to
lay waste to all its achievements. As the
game begins, youre trying to defend the
last city of Earth from oblivion.
Your Guardian can be male or female,
and one of three races: human, exo
(humanoid machines) or awoken (a lot like
humans, but with bluish skin). There are
also three classes the heavily armored
Titan, the more agile Hunter or the magic-
slinging Warlock though all three have
access to the usual assortment of ries,
shotguns and rocket launchers.
Each sphere in the Destiny solar sys-
tem is infested with a different breed of
weapon-wielding pests. The insectoid
Fallen run rampant on decrepit old Earth,
while the undead Hive has burrowed deep
into the Moon. The lush, green Venus has
been taken over by the robotic Vex, while
dusty, red Mars is home to the rhinocer-
oslike Cabal.
The scenarios fall into a familiar rhythm:
You explore an alien site until you reach a
choke point occupied by enemies some
stronger than others, but mostly cannon
fodder for your Guardian. After wiping them
out, you repeat the process a few times until
you nally face off against one particularly
stubborn adversary. The settings and oppo-
nents change, but the predictability is
Shooting games dont have to be this
way. Bethesdas Wolfenstein: The New
Order delivered far more variety, not to
mention a story and characters you could
care about. By the end of the Destiny cam-
paign, I felt like the oating robot voiced
by Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage,
who sounds hopelessly bored despite
humanitys impending demise.
If youd rather shoot other human-con-
trolled Guardians online, youll get much
more mileage out of the games Crucible
mode, which offers the usual death match
and capture-the-flag free-for-alls. Or you
can team up with other gamers in strikes
and raids against supertough monsters.
Technically, its all quite impressive
but, again, unimaginative. Two stars out of
Ambitious Destiny lacks imagination
Technically,Destiny is quite impressive but unimaginative.

day, the stock rose $25.89, or 38 per-
cent, to close at $93.89.
Some Institutional investors, such
as banks or hedge funds, were able to
buy the stock at $68 per share, the
amount set Thursday evening. Most
other investors had to wait until shares
started trading publicly, which meant
paying a much higher price after
adjustments for demand.
Alibabas Taobao, TMall and other
platforms account for some 80 percent
of Chinese online commerce. Most of
the companys 279 million active
buyers visit the sites at least once a
month on smartphones and other
mobile devices, adding to the stocks
attractiveness as online shopping
shifts away from laptop and desktop
Online spending by Chinese shop-
pers is forecast to triple from its 2011
size by 2015. Beyond that, Alibaba
has said it plans to expand into emerg-
ing markets and, eventually, into
Europe and the U.S.
The company does not compete with
its merchants or hold inventory, serv-
ing instead as a conduit that links buy-
ers and sellers of all kinds.
The business model is really inter-
esting. Its not just an eBay. Its not an
Amazon. Its not a Paypal. Its all of
that and much more, said Reena
Aggarwal, a professor at Georgetown.
Yet the track record for Chinese
stocks in general does not inspire con-
dence. Over the last two decades, they
have earned a reputation for burning
investors in both the U.S. and China.
Many of those that do post gains fail
to keep pace with ination. Returns
have been depressed by a range of fac-
tors, including fraud allegations, ques-
tionable accounting and cumbersome
Analysts say the $90-plus price
range is a fair valuation for the shares,
but one fund manager suggested Friday
that the price might not stay that high.
That price might be at least for
the moment the higher end of the
trading range as investors get com-
fortable with the company, said
Kathleen Smith, IPO exchange-trad-
ed fund manager at IPO research firm
Renaissance Capital.
Alibabas revenue from the quarter
ending in June surged 46 percent from
last year to $2.54 billion. Its earnings
climbed 60 percent to nearly $1.2 bil-
lion, after subtracting a one-time gain
and certain other items.
In its last scal year ending March
31, Alibaba earned $3.7 billion, mak-
ing it more protable than eBay Inc.
and Inc. combined.
Based in Mas hometown of
Hangzhou in eastern China, Alibaba
began in 1999 when Ma and 17 friends
developed a fledgling e-commerce
business on the cusp of the Internet
boom. Today, its main platforms are
its original business-to-business serv-
ice,, consumer-to-con-
sumer site Taobao and TMall, a place
for brands to sell to consumers.
Fridays closing price gave the com-
pany a value of $231.44 billion, com-
pared with $150 billion for Amazon
and $67 billion for eBay.
Alibaba offered 320.1 million
shares for a total offering size of
$21.77 billion. Underwriters have a
30-day option to buy up to 48 million
more shares.
The IPO easily eclipsed the $16 bil-
lion Facebook raised in 2012, the
most for a technology IPO. If all of its
underwriters options are exercised, it
would also top the all-time IPO
fundraising record of $22.1 billion set
by the Agricultural Bank of China Ltd.
in 2010.
Gartner analyst Andrew Frank said
Alibabas success shows that Chinese
Internet companies are beginning to
challenge Silicon Valley.
Its not the rst Chinese company
weve seen in the Internet space, but
its certainly the biggest one that
seems to be resonating, he said. Its
a symbol that the Internet dreams of
wealth and power are not just limited to
a few small cities in the West Coast in
the U.S.

After vote to stay
in, U.K. and Scots
must heal divide
By Jill Lawless
Following a long night that
brought oods of relief for some
and bitter disappointment for oth-
ers, Scotland awoke with a hang-
over Friday after voting to reject
Now, the task was to heal the
divide and use the energy the ref-
erendum unleashed to hold London
politicians to promises of more
powers for Scotland.
The result 55 percent to 45
percent was more decisive than
pollsters had foreseen and prompt-
ed Scottish First Minister Alex
Salmond, who led the unsuccessful
Yes campaign, to resign.
But it meant almost half of
Scotlands more than 5 million
people woke up in a country, the
United Kingdom, that they wished
to leave.
Queen Elizabeth II, who has kept
out of the political debate, said
Friday that all of us throughout
the United Kingdom will respect
the result.
In a statement from her Scottish
home at Balmoral castle, the
monarch said despite the range of
views that have been expressed, we
have in common an enduring love
of Scotland, which is one of the
things that helps to unite us all.
Still, Yes supporters have rst to
get over their bitter disappoint-
This time, I thought my vote
would count for something, said
truck driver Calum Noble, 25, his
voice cracking with emotion as a
drizzly mist enveloped the
Scottish city of Glasgow.
I wanted a better country, but
its all been for nothing. I dont
believe we will get any of the
things the London politicians
Salmonds impassioned plea to
launch a new nation fell short, with
Scots choosing instead the securi-
ty of remaining in union with
England, Wales and Northern
Ireland. Yet the independence drive
tapped a wellspring of youth and
energy that campaigners vowed
would endure.
My time as leader is nearly over,
but for Scotland the campaign con-
tinues and the dream shall never
die, Salmond said Friday as he
announced he would step down as
first minister and leader of the
Scottish National Party in
Salmond said Thursdays vote on
independence had been galvaniz-
ing, wonderful, empowering.
We now have the opportunity to
hold Westminsters feet to the re
on the vow that they have made to
devolve further meaningful power
to Scotland, he said.
In the last weeks of the cam-
paign, Prime Minister David
Cameron and other London-based
politicians vowed more autonomy
for Scotland if voters rejected sepa-

Investors breathe sigh
of relief at Scottish vote
By Pan Pylas
LONDON Scotlands decision to reject independence
from the United Kingdom gave British markets a short-term
lift Friday but worries over future constitutional changes
kept a lid on the relief rally.
The No campaign won 55.3 percent of the votes cast in
Thursdays referendum against 44.7 percent who backed
independence. The margin was wider than expected most
opinion polls on the eve of the vote were predicting a nar-
rower 4-point victory for proponents of the union with
England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Investors breathed a sigh of relief that a host of thorny
economic issues were not triggered by a Yes vote. The FTSE
100 index of leading British shares ended up 0.3 percent at
6,837.92 but had been higher earlier in the session.
As well as worries over what currency an independent
Scotland would use, investors had concerns over how the
U.K.s 1.3 trillion pounds ($2.1 trillion) debt would be
split. There were even fears that a Yes vote may have trig-
gered a bank run. The uncertainty was so great that Bank of
England Governor Mark Carney ew back early from a sum-
mit in Australia.
It might not have been nancial meltdown territory, but
the markets almost certainly would have been in turmoil if
the Scots had voted yes, said Dennis de Jong, managing
director at
Buffer zone agreed on in Ukrainian peace talks
MINSK, Belarus Participants in Ukrainian peace talks
agreed early Saturday to create a buffer zone to separate gov-
ernment troops and pro-Russian militants and withdraw for-
eign ghters and heavy weapons from the area of conict in
eastern Ukraine.
The deal reached by representatives of Ukraine, Russia,
the Moscow-backed rebels and the Organization for Security
and Cooperation in Europe marked an effort to add substance
to a cease-re agreement that was signed on Sept. 5 but has
been frequently broken by clashes.
Sierra Leone begins three-day Ebola lockdown
FREETOWN, Sierra Leone Sierra Leone conned its 6
million people to their homes Friday for the next three days
as the Ebola-ravaged West African country began what was
believed to be the most sweeping lockdown against disease
since the Middle Ages.
In a desperate effort to bring the outbreak under control,
thousands of health care workers began going house to
house in crowded urban neighborhoods and remote villages,
hoping to nd and isolate infected people.
Around the world
