First black attorney general
was champion of civil rights
Eric Holder
steps down
By Nedra Pickler
WASHINGTON — Eric Holder, America’s first black attor-
ney general and an unflinching champion of civil rights in
enforcing the nation’s laws, announced his resignation
Thursday after leading the Justice Department since the first
days of President Barack Obama’s term. He is the fourth-
longest-serving attorney general in U.S. history.

U.S.: Immigrant families

After years of negotiations and a lawsuit
against the state, the city of Belmont
agreed to settle its dispute on how much it
owed for the 2012 dissolution of its rede-
velopment agency that helped fund the
Highway 101 pedestrian overpass, street
improvements, the acquisition of its City
Hall site and other projects.
Belmont’s lawsuit, filed in August 2013
against state’s Department of Finance, the
San Mateo County Controller’s Office and
others, ultimately reduced the city’s pay-
ment to $256,000, Belmont City Attorney
Scott Rennie said.
It was an arduous but successful process
starting in May 2013 when the state initial-
ly ordered Belmont turn over $2.4 million
its redevelopment agency had collected,
Rennie said.
The city was able to reduce that to $1.33
million through a statutory process and
through its lawsuit ultimately will turn over
$256,000, Rennie said. The struggle is the
funds the state is demanding had already
been spent on contractors, supplies,
employee compensation and expenses
related to redevelopment projects; mean-
ing, the city will have to reach into its gen-
eral fund to pay the state back, Rennie said.
The city anticipates making the
$256,000 payment Monday, Rennie said.
“Too often Sacramento forgets what the
everyday reality is for small municipalities
and school districts and in a situation like
this, we simply didn’t have that kind of

Chris Dehoff, general manager of Key Market in San Mateo, stands at the register that sold Wednesday’s winning $228.5
million Powerball ticket to a regular customer.
By Samantha Weigel
One lucky San Mateo shopper woke
up millions of dollars richer Thursday
morning after being the only person
in the nation to pick all six numbers of
the $228.5 million Powerball jackpot
The ticketholder has yet to come for-
ward, but owners of the Key Market at
500 S. Norfolk St. in San Mateo will
share in the stroke of luck by receiving
a $1 million retailer bonus for selling
the winning ticket.
Key Market general manager Chris
Dehoff, whose father started the busi-
ness, said they’re fairly sure they
lucky winner is woman who’s a Key
Market regular that always picks the
same numbers.
The odds of taking home the jackpot
are 1 in 175 million and Wednesday’s
winning numbers were 7, 14, 24, 41,
21 and Powerball number 26, accord-
ing to the California Lottery. After the
Internal Revenue Service’s 25 percent
gambling tax and an additional 14.6
percent income tax, San Mateo’s win-
ner has the option to cash out for
$82,204,400, said California Lottery
spokesman Gregory Parashak.
Dehoff said when lottery officials
first called Wednesday night to
announce the win they couldn’t help
but think it was a prank.
“We got the call from the lottery
office roughly around 9 p.m. and
thought it was a scam of some kind.
And then we started getting calls from
reporters that wanted to meet us at the
store. Then we realized, ‘wow this real-
ly happened.’ It was quite a shock,”
Dehoff said.

40 years ago, has been at its San

Man who raised $55K is
throwing potato salad party
COLUMBUS, Ohio — A man who
jokingly sought $10 from a crowdfund-
ing website to pay for his first attempt
at making potato salad and ended up
raising $55,000 is making good on
his promise to throw a huge party.
Zack Brown is planning
PotatoStock 2014, an all-ages, chari-
ty-minded party Saturday in downtown
Columbus featuring bands, food
trucks, beer vendors, potato-sack races
and definitely potato salad.
His effort on Kickstarter in early
July to buy potato salad ingredients
took on a life of its own and attracted
worldwide attention as the amount
grew. The 31-year-old eventually
raised $55,492.
The Idaho Potato Commission and
corporate sponsors have donated sup-
plies for Brown and volunteers to whip
up 300 pounds of potato salad for the
The Columbus Dispatch reports
Brown partnered with the Columbus
Foundation to start an endowment that
will aid area charities that fight hunger
and homelessness. The account, start-
ed with $20,000 in post-campaign cor-
porate donations, will grow after pro-
ceeds from PotatoStock are added.
“His fund will have potential way
after this potato salad is forgotten,”
said Lisa Jolley, the foundation’s direc-
tor of donors and development.
Brown has been wooed by chefs, a
literary agent and admirers seeking
selfies and hugs.
“You never know what’s going to
take off,” said Justin Kazmark, a
spokesman for Kickstarter, whose
projects reach their goals 44 percent of
the time. “This was just the Internet
being the Internet.”
Brown said the effort was never real-
ly about potato salad.
“I think it says something about
how you can spread an idea now, ”
Brown said.
Abandoned truck
dripping rancid chicken juice
MISSOULA, Mont. — A truck drip-
ping rancid juices from thousands of
pounds of rotting chicken sat in the
heat attracting flies Thursday at a west-
ern Montana truck stop, where an
Idaho trucking company employee
abandoned it at least three days earlier.
The driver left the trailer containing
approximately 37,000 pounds of
frozen chicken near the Flying J Truck
Stop west of Missoula after the compa-
ny refused his requests for more money,
authorities said. The chicken was
worth $80,000.
The truck was discovered Tuesday. It
may have been left there more than a
month ago, Nampa, Idaho, police Sgt.
Joe Ramirez said.
Law enforcement officers are search-
ing for the driver, 42-year-old
Christopher L. Hall, who had been
wanted for a parole violation and now
faces a possible theft charge, Ramirez
Hall picked up the trailer in
Springdale, Arkansas, on Aug. 20 and
was supposed to deliver it to Kent,
Washington, the next day.
Hall reportedly texted Dixie River
Freight Inc. several times, saying he
needed more money. When the compa-
ny refused to pay him until he delivered
the load, he apparently abandoned the
trailer at the truck stop, according to
police in Nampa.

Riders planning to take ferries operated
by the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and
Transportation District between Marin
County and San Francisco on Friday will
have to use an alterative form of trans-
portation because of a one-day worker
strike announced Thursday.
San Francisco Bay Ferry service, which
runs between San Francisco and Vallejo,
Oakland, Alameda and South San Francisco,
will continue as normal on Friday.
The strike by ferryboat captains with the
Marine Engineers’ Beneficial Association
is in response to what the employees said
are “unfair labor practices” that stand to
threaten middle-class jobs.
Dave Nolan, a representative for the
Marine Engineers’ Beneficial Association,
stood among ferryboat captains Thursday
morning outside the San Francisco Ferry
Building and announced to the public that
they will go on strike on Friday.
Nolan said the association filed an unfair
labor practice charge against the district
with the state Public Employment
Relations Board on Wednesday following
months of negotiations. The five-month
contract dispute with the bridge district has
left employees without contracts since July
The strike will last from 4:30 a.m. to 9
p.m. Friday with no ferry service between
the Larkspur, San Francisco Ferry Building
and Sausalito terminals, including during
the San Francisco Giants game, according
to Golden Gate Bridge Labor Coalition co-
chair Alex Tonisson.
The issues that have been standing in the
way of resolving the contract dispute
between the bridge district and the 13-
union coalition vary from union to union
but cover issues such as wages, compensa-
tion for training and a proposed high-
deductible health care insurance plan,
among others.
Tonisson said the district’s 16 ferryboat
captains will be on strike Friday and about
100 workers such as ferry machinists and
deckhands are expected to stand in solidari-
ty by not crossing a picket line that will be
assembled at the Larkspur Ferry Terminal.
“The coalition as a whole is having prob-
lems with the district,” Tonisson said.
“The district has the money,” he said.
Tonisson said the district has projected
surplus revenue of roughly $138 million
over the next five years.
Arthur “Art” Gonzalez, a representative
of the Machinists Automotive Trades, one
of the 13 unions represented by the coali-
tion, said he was upset at the district’s
He said a one-day strike by machinists on
the Golden Gate Bridge over employee
health care was held on Sept. 16, but didn’t
motivate the district to negotiate in good
That strike did not affect public transit or
bridge traffic, Gonzalez said.
He said he hopes Friday’s strike will send
a clearer message to the district.
Bridge district officials said they are con-
tinuing to negotiate in good faith with the
unions and have another bargaining ses-
sion planned for Monday.
Bridge district spokeswoman Priya
Clemens said she estimated about 9,000
people will be impacted by the ferry service
disruption on Friday, but expects buses to
be running.
“It could be a very difficult day for traffic
tomorrow,” Clemens said.
Ferrbyboat Captain Robert Farley said
the strike was the “last thing we wanted to
Farley said he realizes the negative
impact the action will have on Bay Area
residents but said he has to stand up for
middle-class jobs in the Bay Area that “are
critical and must be saved.”
He said ferryboat captains are responsi-
ble for the safety of thousands of passen-
gers and that he takes his job seriously, but
said he also has to take his livelihood seri-
ously and he feels that is in jeopardy.
The announcement of the strike ended
with a chant by the ferryboat captains that
went: “When ferry boat captains are under
attack, what do we do? Stand up fight back.”
Nolan said the ferryboat captains in par-
ticular are distressed over the district’s
refusal to offer compensation to its cap-
tains for onsite training of new hires as
well as outside training necessary for job
He said the captains are looking out not
only for each other, but also for the public.

Government sales of Confederate flag banned
SACRAMENTO — Gov. Jerry Brown has signed legisla-
tion prohibiting California state government agencies
from selling or display items displaying the Confederate
Brown's office on Thursday announced signing AB2444.
It was introduced by Democratic Assemblyman Isadore Hall
of Compton after his mother saw replica Confederate cash
sold at the Capitol gift shop.
Hall, who is black, says the state should not promote a
symbol of racism that is meant to intimidate. The gift shop
no longer carries the item.
Lawmakers said AB2444 doesn't violate free speech
rights because it applies only to formal actions of govern-
ment officials. It also allows for the flag to be displayed in
books and museums for historical or educational purposes.
The law, which takes effects January, also doesn't apply to
people protesting or entering state property.
Gov. signs bill to end forced prison sterilization
SACRAMENTO — Legislation signed by Gov. Jerry
Brown will prohibit California prisons from forcing women
to be sterilized for birth control.
The Democratic governor announced Thursday that he
signed SB1135 by Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, a Santa
Barbara Democrat.
The legislation makes forced sterilization illegal except
in cases where the patient's life is in danger or it is needed
to treat a medical condition. It also requires a second physi-
cian to consult with a patient about the effects of the proce-
Jackson introduced the legislation after the Center for
Investigative Reporting found that female inmates at two
California prisons underwent forced sterilizations as recent-
ly as 2010.
California prison guard union leader to retire
SACRAMENTO — The leader of the union representing
state prison guards is retiring, leaving an organization that
had sparred with then-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
before making peace with Gov. Jerry Brown.
Mike Jimenez will be succeeded in January by Chuck
Alexander, who is executive vice president of the California
Correctional Peace Officers Association. The union voted
for the switch during its annual meeting this week in Las
Jimenez became president of the 30,000-member union in
The union pictured Schwarzenegger with devil's horns and
in other unflattering ways as it sought a contract with the
former Republican governor. Jimenez once refused to cut
his hair and beard until an agreement was reached.
Schwarzenegger eventually imposed a contract, replacing
what had been a lucrative collective bargaining agreement
negotiated by former Gov. Gray Davis.

San Bruno will officially mark its
100th anniversary Dec. 23, 2014, but
a carnival this weekend at San Bruno
City Park is one of several activities
marking this milestone year.
The event will feature carnival rides,
field games, historical displays, as
well as music and dance stage events
from 10:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at the park
on City Park Way.
“We’re shutting down San Bruno
Park so we could be together as a com-
munity and celebrate San Bruno’s cen-
tennial,” said San Bruno Mayor Jim
Ruane. “It’s just a day in the park for
the community. ”
San Bruno officially became a city in
1914 when new suburbs sprung up
around San Francisco after the 1906
earthquake devastated homes. San
Bruno was originally designated as a
rural getaway for San Francisco city-
dwellers. Hotel and way station San
Bruno House was a favorite place for
fishermen and hunters.
The carnival is just one celebration
in part of series of happenings to wel-
come the centennial.
“It’s a year-long celebration with
different events,” said Community
Services Director Kerry Burns.
Up next will be the dedication of a
centennial art project in November,
which is still in the works. A larger
signature event will be the centennial
gala hosted at Skyline College, which
will be spearheaded by Ruane. The
yearlong celebration kicked off with
the annual tree-lighting Dec. 5, 2013,
and was continued throughout the year
with a scavenger hunt, a parade and
numerous historical walks.
“It’s an event meant for the San
Bruno community,” Burns said.

PLACERVILLE — Firefighters are tak-
ing advantage of rainy weather to make
progress on a massive wildfire threaten-
ing thousands of homes in the Sierra
Nevada foothills of California, authori-
ties said Thursday.
A huge fire burning east of
Sacramento grew slightly overnight to
nearly 150 square miles, but contain-
ment increased to 43 percent on
Thursday morning, according to the
California Department of Forestry and
Fire Prevention.
“The rain is definitely allowing the
firefighters to make progress on con-
tainment,” said Dana Welsh, a spokes-
woman for the U.S. Forest Service.
But there are still large areas of the fire
that are not contained, so the blaze
could still spread when the rain stops,
Welsh added. There is no estimated date
for full containment.
Rain fell over parts of the fire area
throughout the day Thursday, when the
National Weather Service issued a flash-
flood warning for the region. There is a
chance for more rain through the week-
The rain should help firefighters
expand containment lines, but it could
also lead to mudslides and slippery roads
that could make firefighting more dan-
gerous, Welsh said.
More than 8,000 firefighters, some
coming from as far away as Alaska and
Florida, were battling the blaze, which
has destroyed 12 homes and threatens
another 12,000 near the town of
Pollock Pines.
Evacuees from Swansboro, a moun-
tain community of about 400 homes,
were allowed to return Wednesday night.
About 2,800 people overall had been
evacuated, but it wasn’t immediately
clear how many remained.
Wayne Allen Huntsman, 37, has been
charged with starting the fire. He has
pleaded not guilty to arson and remains
in jail on $10 million bail
The fire has become the second prici-
est blaze in California this year, costing
more than $50 million to fight since it
began nearly two weeks ago. The state
spent more than $85 million fighting a
fire in Klamath National Forest along
the California-Oregon border.

ing home care as states seek to limit long-
term medical costs.
In a letter released Thursday, the senators
urged the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid
Services to follow through on plans to
loosen restrictions on the Program of All
Inclusive Care for the Elderly. PACE is open
to Medicaid-eligible seniors and people with
disabilities who need nursing home care.
The program run by Medicaid, the state-
federal health insurance program for the
poor, allows seniors to stay in their own
homes and receive coordinated care from a
team of doctors, nurses and social workers
usually at an independently operated day cen-
ter. But enrollment has been modest, limited
somewhat by federal regulations and a recent
push by states under the Affordable Care Act
to move patients into more cost-effective
managed-care plans.
Currently, more than 31,000 Americans 55
or older are served by 196 PACE centers in 31
states, according to the National PACE
Association. Pennsylvania has the most
centers, at 32, followed by California, New
York, Massachusetts, Virginia and North
FBI chief: Apple, Google
phone encryption perilous
WASHINGTON — The FBI director on
Thursday criticized the decision by Apple and
Google to encrypt smartphones data so it can
be inaccessible to law enforcement, even
with a court order.
James Comey told reporters at FBI head-
quarters that U.S. officials are in talks with
the two companies, which he accused of mar-
keting products that would let people put
themselves beyond the law’s reach.
Comey cited child-kidnapping and terror-
ism cases as two examples of situations
where quick access by authorities to informa-
tion on cellphones can save lives. Comey
did not cite specific past cases that would
have been more difficult for the FBI to inves-
tigate under the new policies, which only
involve physical access to a suspect’s or vic-
tim’s phone when the owner is unable or
unwilling to unlock it for authorities.
“What concerns me about this is compa-
nies marketing something expressly to
allow people to hold themselves beyond the
law,” Comey said. At another point, he said
he feared a moment when “when people with
tears in their eyes look at me and say, ‘What
do you mean you can’t?’”

FRESNO — California farmers who spray a
widely used insecticide on some of the state’s
most abundant crops may soon have to over-
come the nation’s steepest restrictions or
find another pest killer, officials said
Regulators are proposing heavy restric-
tions — but not an all-out ban — on chlor-
pyrifos, used to treat crops like grapes and
almonds. The pesticide, in use since 1965,
has sickened dozens of farmworkers in recent
years. Traces have been found in waterways,
threatening fish, and regulators say overuse
could make targeted insects immune to the
“We’ve come up with a clear idea of when
it’s really needed and what are the alterna-
tives,” said Brian Leahy, director of the
California Department of Pesticide
Regulation. “We want to preserve this tool
for when you really need it.”
But he expects pushback from across
California’s agricultural industry, which
leads the nation in production.
Joel Nelson, president of the California
Citrus Mutual, said that because somebody
misused the pesticide, everybody shouldn’t
be punished with restrictions. Nelson said
regulators in Sacramento want to apply a
“broad-brush approach,” which isn’t right.
Alternatives pesticides exist, but he said
they’re not as effective and are more expen-
“What’s a producer to do, let his cotton
production be destroyed by a pest, or should
they spray it?” Nelson said.
The pesticide is sprayed on 60 different
crops, which also include alfalfa, walnuts,
oranges and cotton. Up to 2 million pounds
each year are sprayed in California.
The U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency in 2012 enacted restrictions on
chlorpyrifos, placing buffers around sensi-
tive sites, like schools.
That wasn’t enough for California officials,
who say the history of companies not fol-
lowing the rules requires a proactive stance.

SAN FRANCISCO — Officers shot and

SACRAMENTO — The challenger in the

elected schools chief said Thursday that if he
wins in November he would immediately
withdraw the state superintendent from an

Former charter schools executive Marshall
Tuck said during an appearance before the
Sacramento Press Club that unlike incum-
bent Tom Torlakson, a former high school
teacher and career politician who enjoys
strong backing from California’s powerful
teachers unions, he supports both the ruling
and the goals of the student plaintiffs who
brought the case, Vergara
v. California.
“What is going on in
California right now? We
have students filing law-
suits to get a quality edu-
cation because we are not
leading and we are not
doing right by them,”
said Tuck, whose candida-
cy to deny Torlakson a
second term is supported by wealthy entre-
preneurs and education reform groups.
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge last
month finalized his June ruling finding that
five laws governing the hiring and firing of
teachers violate the California Constitution
by depriving some of the state’s 6.2 million
students of a quality education. The laws at
issue, which dictate when
teachers are given tenure,
subject to budget-based
layoffs and dismissed for
unprofessional conduct,
offer California teachers
some of the of the
nation’s strongest profes-
sional safeguards.
Torlakson and Gov.
Jerry Brown, the law-
suit’s two defendants, have appealed the
decision. So have California’s two largest
teachers unions, meaning the appeal would
still move forward without Tuck’s backing,
if he wins.
Tuck said that notifying the court of his
position nonetheless would be on his first
actions if he defeats Torlakson.

UNITED NATIONS — President Barack
Obama, in a sober assessment of interna-
tional efforts to stem a deadly Ebola out-
break, warned a high-level United Nations
gathering Thursday that there is a “signifi-
cant gap” between what’s been offered so far
and what is actually needed to stem the
health crises in West Africa.
The leaders of the hardest-hit nations also
appealed for more help, with the president
of Sierra Leone calling the Ebola virus
“worse than terrorism.”
The emergency U.N. session on Ebola
reflected the deep concern about an outbreak
that has so far killed nearly 3,000 people.
U.S. health officials have warned that the
number of infected people could explode to
at least 1.4 million by mid-January, though
they have also cautioned that the totals
could peak well below that if efforts to con-
trol the outbreak are ramped up.
Despite the grim warnings, Obama said
international aid simply is not flowing into
West Africa fast enough.
“The outbreak is such where at this point,
more people will die,” Obama said as he
closed out three days of diplomacy at the
annual gathering of the U.N. General
Assembly. “So this is not one where there
should be a lot of wrangling and people
waiting to see who else is doing what.
Everybody has got to move fast in order for
us to make a difference.”
On Thursday, top lawmakers in Congress
also approved the use of leftover
Afghanistan war money to begin funding
Obama’s $1 billion request to help fight the
Obama has come under criticism from
some in West Africa for a slow response to
the outbreak. He outlined a more robust plan
last week, announcing that the U.S. would
dispatch 3,000 U.S. troops to Liberia to set
up facilities and form training teams to help
with the response. The Pentagon mission
will involve airlifting personnel, medical
supplies and equipment, such as tents to
house Ebola victims and isolate people
exposed to the virus.
European Commission chief Jose Manuel
Barroso announced Thursday that the
European Union was increasing aid to tack-
le the outbreak by nearly $40 million.
U.S. may have identified
man in beheading videos
WASHINGTON — The FBI director says
the U.S. believes it has identified the
British-accented masked man in the videos
depicting the beheadings of two American
journalists and a British aid worker.
FBI Director James Comey told reporters
at the bureau’s headquarters Thursday he
would not reveal the man’s name or nation-
Comey did not address whether the U.S.
believes the man actually carried out the
killings himself. The full beheadings are
not shown in the videos, but the British-
accented, English-speaking militant holds a
long knife and appears to begin cutting the
three men, American reporters James Foley
and Steven Sotloff and British aid worker
David Haines.
In late August, British Ambassador Peter
Westmacott said his country was close to

FBI: About a dozen
Americans fighting in Syria
WASHINGTON — The number of
Americans the government believes is
fighting alongside extremist groups in
Syria is almost one-tenth the number cited

There are about 12 Americans believed to
be fighting in Syria right now, FBI Director
James Comey said Thursday. There are more
than 100 Americans who have either tried to
go to Syria and were arrested, or went and
came back to the U.S., Comey said without
offering more details.
The 100 figure, however, had taken on
urban legend status in recent months as the
Obama administration made its case for mil-
itary action in Iraq and Syria. It’s unclear
what significance the discrepancy has as far
as Americans’ support for the U.S. military
action, which so far has been strong.

WASHINGTON — Average long-term U.S.
mortgage rates declined slightly this week,
after marking their largest one-week gain of
the year the previous week.
Mortgage company Freddie Mac said
Thursday that the nationwide average for a
30-year loan eased to 4.20 percent from 4.23
percent last week. The average for a 15-year
mortgage, a popular choice for people who
are refinancing, slipped to 3.36 percent from
3.37 percent.
At 4.20 percent, the rate on a 30-year mort-
gage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of
the year. Rates have fallen even though the
Federal Reserve has been trimming its
monthly bond purchases, which are intended
to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The
purchases are set to end next month.
Last week, the average rate on the 30-year
loan jumped to 4.23 percent from 4.12 per-
cent a week earlier, amid market speculation
that the Fed might abandon its nearly 6-year-
old policy of keeping short-term interest
rates at record lows. But at their meeting that
ended last Wednesday, Fed policymakers
decided to keep the low rates, at least for a few
more months.
Fewer Americans bought homes in August,
as investors retreated from real estate and
first-time buyers remained scarce, data
released Monday by the National
Association of Realtors showed.
By contrast, the Commerce Department
reported Wednesday that sales of newly con-
structed homes surged in August, led by a
wave of buying in the West and Northeast. It
was the fastest sales pace since May 2008. It
was seen as a clear sign of improvement for a
real estate market that has been muddled in
recent months, as the rebound in home sales
that followed the housing bust began to

Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko speaks to the media during a news conference in Kiev
By Laura Mills
KIEV, Ukraine — Ukraine’s leader said
Thursday that “the most dangerous part of
the war” has passed and that the conflict
with pro-Russia separatists in the country’s
east is on the wane. Artillery fire, however,
still rang out in the region’s largest city.
In a news conference in Kiev outlining a
six-year plan for Ukraine, Petro
Poroshenko said: “I have no doubt whatso-
ever that my peace plan will work and that
the main and most dangerous part of the war
is behind.”
Poroshenko’s plan includes reforming all
major government agencies in the country.
The president said he hoped those reforms
would make the country ready for member-
ship in the European Union by 2020.
But Poroshenko spent much of the news
conference fielding questions about a con-
flict in the east of the country, where fight-
ing between government and rebel forces
has killed at least 3,500 people since mid-
April. His peace proposal, which was laid
out soon after he became president in June,
were the foundation for agreements this
month aimed at ending the fighting.
The first step was a cease-fire called three
weeks ago that in the beginning was repeat-
edly violated. In recent days, reports of vio-
lations have decreased notably, although on
Thursday the city council of Donetsk, the
largest rebel stronghold in the region, said
that artillery fire and other explosions could
be heard throughout the city during the day.
Poroshenko also said he is working to
arrange a meeting within the next few weeks
with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but
stressed it was contingent on whether the
cease-fire was implemented or not.

Thinking through the taxes
In his letter “Taxes and wealth dis-
tribution” in the Sept. 23 edition of
the Daily Journal, Harry Roussard
finds some simple numbers to pub-
lish, but fails to think through the
context of those numbers. It sounds
like Mr. Roussard would prefer a poll
tax where every person pays the same
amount in taxes regardless of intelli-
gence, health, age, disability or luck.
I’m not sure if he is advocating for
more people to be made homeless, or
for the introduction of a senseless
bureaucracy that takes all income
from the low-paid and returns it to
them as welfare.
Or, perhaps, we can be generous and
assume Mr. Roussard advocates for a
flat tax where the top 1 percent of
income-earners would pay 23 percent
of federal taxes (Mr. Roussard might
want to take into account state and
local taxes for a more accurate view) .
Mr. Roussard may want to learn about
the concept of “discretionary spend-
ing.” Discretionary spending is what
you have left over after you’ve paid
for your food, clothing, shelter,
health care, transportation and taxes.
Reducing the discretionary spending
on the 99 percent hurts them a lot
more than reducing the discretionary
spending on the 1 percent.
Mr. Roussard may also want to con-
sider relative benefit. Top earners are
likely to be high-level business man-
agers, or, as Mr. Roussard suggests,
make much of their income from own-
ership of business. Business benefit s
from cheap transportation, secure oil
supplies and a healthy, educated work-
force more than individuals do.
The bottom line? In 1980, the top
1 percent earned 10 percent of all
U.S. income. In 2007, they earned 23
percent. The oppressed top 1 percent
saw their incomes rise by a factor of
2.3, but their federal taxes rose by
only a factor of 1.8.

Transforming cities
for better paradigm
This is what worked in the city of
Bogota, Colombia, South America,
back in 1999, their mayor Enrique
Penalosa, who studied economics at
Duke University, at the time his city
was stuck in gridlock, and “the world
bank wanted to finance the fix up of
the freeway system for the automo-
bile infrastructure.” Penalosa didn’t
know what to do, he wanted health
care for the citizens, he wanted a more
civilized environment for its citizens.
He promoted a city model giving pri-
ority to children and public spaces
and restricted private car use, building
hundreds of miles of sidewalks, bicy-
cle paths, pedestrian streets, green-
ways and parks.
After organizing a Car-Free Day in
2000, he was awarded the Stockholm
Challenge Award and rewarded by a
referendum vote endorsing an annual
car free day and the elimination of all
cars during rush hours from 2015
He improved Bogota’s marginal
neighborhoods and transformed a
deteriorated downtown avenue into a
dynamic pedestrian public space,
planted 1,000 new trees, created a
modern bus-based transit system,
“Millennium 2000,” and helped trans-
form a city’s bleak attitude to a
brighter perspective of hope, inspira-
tion making a template for urban
renewal based on the equal rights of
all people to transportation, educa-
tion and public spaces.
“I was almost impeached for getting
cars off sidewalks which car owning
upper-class had illegally appropriated
for parking.” — Enrique Penalosa.

Letters to the editor
he Burlingame Elementary
School District currently has
two parcel taxes it uses to
supplement the money it gets from
the state for programs and teachers.
They total $256 a year and buffer the
district from turbulence from state
education budgeting that has had sig-
nificant ups and downs in recent
While the Local Control Funding
Formula enacted this year will likely
stem some of the ups and downs from
Sacramento, there always remains the
very real possibility of disruption. In
fact, district officials had thought
they were facing a $300 per student
reduction when the budget numbers
were first announced. One never
knows what the halls of the Capitol
will bring to the classrooms of our
schools and the boardrooms of our
school districts.
The two voter-approved taxes,
2011’s $76 a year Measure E and
2010’s $180 a year Measure B, pro-
vide the district approximately
$2.125 million of its approximately
$25 million budget. Their passage
has proven to be the salve from state
budget cuts over the years and provid-
ed ways to keep the district’s cuts
from the classroom.
Both taxes have different expiration
dates and district officials are seeking
to consolidate both into one new
measure that would last 14 years. That
may seem like a long time for some,
but it will provide some measure of
predictability and stability for the
district and preclude the necessity of
continually coming to voters for this
source of revenue.
Additionally, the community has
also contributed money to education
through the district’s foundation that
provides about $1.5 million in dona-
tions this year.
Opponents to the measure have
good points — more should be done
with less, there could be more parent
involvement and volunteering. But
the community has already shown
they are willing to volunteer when
needed and provide money through
Burlingame schools are noteworthy
for their quality, even in tough budget
times. By consolidating these two
parcel taxes into one, while extend-
ing the timeline 14 years, Burlingame
voters have an opportunity to provide
at least one source of stable, and
local, funding for its schools. And
that not only helps its children, but
also maintains property values and
ensures that the city will remain a
desirable place to live.

Advisory Committee, we share in common the
conviction that youth in our diverse two cities-one

district’s unique programs and schools. Some of us on
the committee are parents of students in the district;
some of us have students who previously attended dis-

district. However, each of us understands the impact of
increasing enrollment on capacity and equity issues
affecting the youth in our two-city community.
The focus of the committee is on community engage-
ment to address the critical issue that the San Mateo-
Foster City Elementary School District is bursting at
the seams. On the average, 250 new seats are needed
each year to accommodate increasing enrollment. In
the last five years alone, there has been a 13 percent
increase in enrollment in district schools. Whether the
youth in our school community are born here or move
here, their futures are shaped by all of us, with a unified
commitment that their education is a community prior-
i t y. What we do now, in the face of this challenge, will
set the stage for the future of our children and our com-
What are the next steps, then, for the district to take

Conflict Resolution Center to develop a community
engagement process, the committee is asking for com-
munity input; for your ideas about identifying solu-

Big movers
By Matthew Craft
NEWYORK — Astumble by Apple
set off the worst rout in the stock mar-
ket since July on Thursday.
Apple dropped nearly 4 percent fol-
lowing its announcement late
Wednesday that it had pulled a software
update which prevented users from
making phone calls. Other technology
stocks also slumped.
The selling started early and picked
up strength in the afternoon. By the
close of trading, all 30 big companies
in the Dow Jones industrial average and
the 10 industries in the Standard &
Poor’s 500 index lost ground.
Most investors said the drop wasn’t a
sign of worry because the forces behind
the market’s long rally remain in place.
It was only a week ago that the S&P500
touched a record high, and strong runs
are usually followed by short breaks.
The index has lost 2 percent this week
but is still up 6 percent for the year.
“There’s just an absence of real news
to chew on,” said Mark Luschini, the
chief investment strategist at Janney
Montgomery Scott. “When you’re at a
peak, markets need more and more
good news to keep climbing.”
The S&P 500 index lost 32.31
points, or 1.6 percent, to close at
The Dow slumped 264.26 points, or
1.5 percent, to close at 16,945.80. The
Nasdaq composite, which is dominated
by technology companies, dropped
88.47 points, or 1.9 percent, to
It was the worst day for all three
indexes since July 31.
Two economic reports out Thursday
were little help. Claims for unemploy-
ment benefits crept up last week. But
the less volatile four-week average fell.
Aseparate report said businesses orders
for equipment plunged last month,
mainly a result of falling orders for
commercial aircraft.
“The economic numbers were nega-
tive, but not alarming and don’t change
the direction of the economy at this
time,” said Peter Cardillo, chief market
economist at Rockwell Global
Henry Smith, chief investment offi-
cer at Haverford Trust, said there was no
fundamental reason behind the drop on
Thursday. A sudden turn might seem
alarming because it’s so unusual.
“We’ve really had such little volatili-
ty for the past couple of years,” Smith
said. “Now when we have a 200-point
drop in the Dow, it feels like some-
thing is really wrong.”
Trading this week has turned increas-
ingly turbulent, an abrupt break from a
sleepy summer. On Monday, concerns
about slowing growth in China and
falling U.S. home sales knocked the
market back, giving the S&P 500 its
worst daily drop in more than a month.
On Wednesday, the S&P 500 had its
best gain in more than a month.
Some investment professionals have
been warning that the market has been
calm for too long and say a 10 percent
drop, known as a “correction,” is over-
due. Since World War II, they typically
hit every 18 months, according to S&P
Capital IQ. The last one occurred in
August 2011.
“Big pullbacks are normal in a bull
market,” said Smith. “What’s abnormal
is that we’ve gone three years without
Bill Strazzullo, chief market strate-
gist at research firm Bell Curve
Trading, thinks stocks could fall fur-
ther as the S&P 500 slips toward
1,950. He said the money that
investors poured into stocks when the
index crossed above that mark could be
pulled out.
“You could get people wanting to liq-
uidate,” Strazzullo said. “If you go
below 1,950, the market can easily
correct 10 percent, maybe more.”
Apple, which closed at a record high
of $103.30 on Sept. 2, sank $3.88 to
$97.87 in heavy trading. It was the
second-biggest drop in the S&P 500
index. In addition to the software
glitch, some users of the new iPhone
complained that the phone could be
bent easily.
Apple bites stock market
By Jonathan Fahey
NEWYORK — The price of a gallon
of gasoline may soon start with a “2’’
across much the country.
Gasoline prices typically decline in
autumn, and this year they are being
pulled even lower by falling global oil
prices. By the end of the year, up to 30
states could have an average gasoline
price of less than $3 a gallon.
The average in Springfield,
Missouri, is already below $3, accord-
ing to Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at
the Oil Price Information Service and
GasBuddy.com. Several other cities are
on the brink.
“And there will be more, many
more,” Kloza said. Cities in high-
priced states such as California and
New York will not be among them,
though, which will probably keep the
national average above $3.
At the current national average of
$3.35 a gallon, gas is a dime cheaper
than a year ago at this time. The gap is
20 cents or more in seven states,
including California, Kansas, South
Dakota and Connecticut, according to
Lower fuel prices help the economy
in a few ways. They make goods cheap-
er to ship and make travel more afford-
able. Drivers are left with a few extra
dollars in their pockets. And con-
sumers grow confident enough to make
other purchases, perhaps even a big-
ticket item. Consumer spending is 70
percent of the U.S. economy.
Aidan Obrecht, a 20-year-old com-
munity college student from
Boothwyn, Pennsylvania, said gas in
his area has fallen 10 to 20 cents over
the past couple of weeks. He paid
$3.27 a gallon Thursday to fill up his
Ford Taurus on his way to work at a
CVS pharmacy.
“I’m living paycheck to paycheck,
so it’s nice to be able to save” he said.
“Even if it’s $5 or $10 extra (after a
fill-up), it adds up over the long run.”
Fall is when refiners are allowed to
switch to a cheaper blend of gasoline
for the cooler months, and driving
demand declines after summer vaca-
tions have ended.

Iowa bars Tesla Motors from offering test drives
DES MOINES, Iowa — The Iowa Department of
Transportation told Tesla Motors to stop offering test
drives in the state, saying the electric car company is not
a licensed auto dealer in Iowa and state law bars carmakers
from selling directly to the public.
ATesla spokeswoman said the company does not think
the statutes apply because the company was offering only
three-day test drives, not actually selling cars, The Des
Moines Register reported (http://dmreg.co/1sZhA2w).
Palo Alto, California-based Tesla does not sell its elec-
tric cars through franchise dealerships. People can buy
the Model S online or at one of a handful of Tesla stores
around the country.
Tesla had set up in a hotel parking lot in West Des
Moines on Sept. 9, planning on offering three days of
test drives. It canceled the last day after speaking with the
Iowa Transportation Department.
Kelly Hart, of Windsor Heights, was scheduled to take a
test drive on the third day. He said he’s glad he can visit a
Tesla showroom later this year when he travels to
Chicago but that he would like to see Iowa laws altered to
let Tesla test drives happen.
DirecTV shareholders
approve $48.5B sale to AT&T
NEWYORK — AT&T’s proposed $48.5 billion acquisi-
tion of DirecTV is moving forward as shareholders of the
country’s largest satellite TV broadcaster approved the
deal. But it still needs regulatory approval.
Public-interest groups say the deal would lead to less
competition, since AT&T and DirecTV provide pay-TV
services to about 25 percent of the country. AT&T has
about 5.7 million subscribers to its pay-TV services.
DirecTV has 20 million subscribers.
AT&T wants to acquire DirecTVis to gain access to pro-
gramming at lower rates.
The board of El Segundo, California-based DirecTV
agreed to the deal in May. More than 99 percent of votes
cast favored the deal. That represented 77 percent of all
outstanding shares. The deal needs approval by the
Justice Department and the Federal Communications
Two Wisconsin families settle with GM over crash
DETROIT — As General Motors begins to compensate
the victims of crashes tied to faulty ignition switches,
this week more than a dozen families were given a choice:
accept a settlement, presumably in the millions of dol-
lars, or fight GM in a potentially lengthy court battle.
On Thursday, the families of two Wisconsin teenagers
killed in an Oct. 24, 2006, crash of a Chevrolet Cobalt
accepted cash offers from Kenneth Feinberg, the lawyer
hired by GM to settle with victims on its behalf, accord-
ing to Robert Hilliard, the families’ attorney. They recent-
ly dropped a lawsuit GM in favor of seeking a settlement.

Padres rallied from six runs down and nearly
spoiled San Francisco’s delayed clinching
The Giants blew a six-run lead, and then
rallied for a 9-8 victory over the Padres on
Thursday night to stay within one game of
Pittsburgh for the top spot in the NL wild-
card standings.
“I’m very proud of the guys, down 6-0,
come back 8-6 against a good team, a team
going to the playoffs,” Padres manager Bud
Black said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s game
159 or game 1, our guys play, man. It does-
n’t matter what game. That’s the mantra of
this group, they keep playing.”
Hunter Pence scored the go-ahead run on
Matt Duffy’s squeeze bunt in the Giants’
three-run seventh, hours after they clinched
a playoff berth with Milwaukee’s loss at
Cincinnati. Pablo Sandoval had a season-
high four RBIs, including a key single in
the decisive seventh.
The Giants (86-73) kept pace with
Pittsburgh (87-72) after the Pirates won 10-
1 at Atlanta to pull within one game of first-
place St. Louis in the NL Central. San
Francisco will play one of those two clubs
in a one-game playoff Wednesday, home
field still to be determined.
“The fun’s just now starting,” right-han-
der Tim Hudson said.
Yasmani Grandal hit his first career grand
slam for San Diego in the seventh. He also
had a solo shot in the sixth.
Two batters after Grandal’s slam, Rene
Rivera went deep to give the Padres an 8-6
lead. The Giants then answered in the bot-
tom half against Blaine Boyer (0-1).
Tim Lincecum (11-9) recorded the final out
of the seventh for the win. Santiago Casilla
closed it out for his 18th save in 22
Lincecum earned his 100th career victory
on all of two pitches.
“It’s kind of the vulturish way but I’ll take
anything I can get,” Lincecum said. “Who
would plan for a two-pitch win?”
Grandal had his second career multihomer
game, also accomplishing the feat on June
30, 2012, at Colorado.

Eliza Grover tabs one of Menlo-Atherton’s eight team blocks in Thursday’s 25-13,25-11,27-25
win over Hillsdale.With the win,the Bears remain undefeated through two Bay Division games.
By Terry Bernal
Menlo-Atherton is quickly garnering a
reputation as the comeback kids.
The Bears have swept through their first
two volleyball matches in Peninsula
Athletic League Bay Division play, but both
times have battled back from the abyss in
Game 3 to do so. After overcoming a 20-13
deficit in the third set of Tuesday’s league
opener at Burlingame, M-Afound itself once
again facing a seemingly insurmountable
deficit Thursday at Hillsdale.
After cruising through the first two sets
M-A fell behind 14-6 in Game 3. But then,
fueled by a mix of reserve players highlight-
ed by an 11-point service run by sophomore
Kiana Sales, the Bears (2-0 in PAL Bay
Division, 11-2 overall) stormed back to win
the set in overtime and triumph over the
Knights (0-2, 3-4) in the match, 25-13, 25-
11, 27-25.
How does M-A head coach Ron Whitmill
feel about the comeback kids stigma?
“I don’t want to be that team,” Whitmill
With his team trailing 14-6 in the third
set, Whitmill called a timeout and gave an
animated pep-talk to his squad. Utilizing a
Game 3 lineup of reserves which haven’t
seen a lot playing time this season due to
the extraordinary depth on M-A’s roster,
Whitmill shocked his team out of their nerv-
ous start by reminding them they were on
the court for a reason.
“The main thing, at that point, was to
remind them how good they are and remind
them the level they play at in practice every
day,” Whitmill said. “Those same kids com-
pete against our starting lineup in practice
every day and play at a very high level. I
think they forgot that when they came out
here today. ”
The Bears responded to the pep-talk. After
a side-out, Sales fired a service ace to spark
the comeback. And after a slew of Hillsdale
hitting errors and a pair of Devin Joos kills,

LANDOVER, Md. — He wasn’t drafted,
people mispronounce his name, and he had
no idea where he was going when he was
ushered into the room for his first big NFL
postgame news conference.
But Larry Donnell can find the end zone.
And, once he gets there, all he has to do is
turn his 6-foot-6, 265-pound body around
and haul in the pass from Eli Manning. It
happened three times in the first half
Thursday night in the New York Giants’ 45-

“You set your goals high,” Donnell said.

the perfect target in the team’s new dink-
and-dunk offense. The second-year tight end
out of Grambling State caught twisting
grabs of 5, 6 and 6 yards, touchdowns so
similar he had trouble differentiating them
in his mind.
“They all tie into each other,” he said.
“Every time I think about one, I just smile
from ear to ear, man. It’s just a great feeling.
... When we’re down there, you make eyes
with Eli, you know he’s about to throw it.”
After struggling in his first two games

cent of his passes in this offense, and he

SAN FRANCISCO — While Hall of Famer
Willie McCovey remains hospitalized
recovering following complications from
an infection, he is monitoring every devel-
opment with the playoff-bound San
Francisco Giants.
The 76-year-old McCovey, who was hos-
pitalized about two weeks ago in the Bay
Area, will have to miss the presentation of
an award in his name that will be announced
and given to a San Francisco player during a
pregame ceremony at AT&T Park on Friday
“He’s still in the hospital recovering and
unfortunately will not be here tomorrow
night,” Giants spokeswoman Staci
Slaughter said. “However he’s following the
team closely and watching each pitch and
will be tuning in for tomorrow night’s cere-
mony. ”
The “Willie Mac” Award is voted on by the
players, coaches and training staff to recog-
nize the team’s most inspirational player
both on the field and in the clubhouse. This
is expected to be the first time McCovey has
missed the award presentation since its
inception in 1980.
The Giants have stayed in close contact
with McCovey and his family. The club
urged fans to keep the former first baseman
and left fielder nicknamed “Stretch” in their
thoughts, and said notes could be sent to
him at AT&T Park. McCovey had been a reg-
ular at games this season and has attended
many Giants games over the past few sea-
McCovey was a career .270 hitter with
521 homers and 1,555 RBIs in 22 major
league seasons, 19 of them with the Giants.
He also played for the Athletics and Padres.
McCovey still gets asked regularly about
the 1962 World Series the Giants lost in
seven games to the New York Yankees, and
it’s still a tough memory. The Giants lost 1-
0 in Game 7 when McCovey lined out to sec-
ond baseman Bobby Richardson with run-
ners on second and third for the final out.

GLENEAGLES, Scotland — Phil
Mickelson poked fun at Rory McIlroy. Now
they get to face off in the Ryder Cup.
Mickelson and Keegan Bradley, undefeated
as a team two years ago at Medinah, face the
European powerhouse of McIlroy and Sergio
Garcia in the opening session of fourballs on
Friday at Gleneagles.
"We're looking to hand them their first
defeat tomorrow morning," McIlroy said.
They will be the anchor match of what
should be a fascinating opening session.
U.S. captain Tom Watson made sure all
three of his rookies were on the course at
Gleneagles right away, and two of them are
partners — 21-year-old Jordan Spieth and 24-
year-old Patrick Reed, the youngest pairing
in Ryder Cup history.
Europe captain Paul McGinley put together
four pairings who have never played togeth-
er in a Ryder Cup. That includes McIlroy and
Garcia, who he said have become fast friends
over the summer and asked to play together.
"The fun is only starting now," McGinley
Mickelson took a playful jab at McIlroy on
Wednesday when he said the best part of
American unity is the players don't "litigate
against each other." McIlroy has a court bat-
tle against his former management company,
and the lawsuit involves Graeme McDowell.
McIlroy told Golf Channel on Thursday
that he "got a couple of jabs back" at the gala
dinner on Wednesday.
"I know Phil well and we had a couple of
laughs about it," McIlroy said.
Mickelson and Bradley went 2-1-1 as part-
ners in the Presidents Cup last year, so they
are not unbeatable. And while they faced
some of Europe's strongest tandems at
Medinah — including handing Garcia and
Luke Donald their first loss in foursomes —
this might be the toughest yet.
"It's going to be a difficult match against
what we perceive as the strongest team that
Europe has," Mickelson said.
Watson went with his strength at the top.
He chose Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson
in the opening match against Justin Rose and
Henrik Stenson. Watson and Simpson won
both fourballs matches at Medinah, beating
both opponents on the 14th hole.
Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker will play
the second match against Martin Kaymer and
Thomas Bjorn, the 43-year-old Dane who is
playing in the Ryder Cup for the first time
since 2002.
Spieth and Reed will face Ian Poulter and
Stephen Gallacher in what might be the most
compelling match of the morning.
"I told them today, 'I'm going to throw you
in the ocean without a life
preserver. You're on your
own. You get out there and
you get it done,'" Watson
Poulter is the most
dynamic Ryder Cup player
for Europe, a winner of
seven straight matches
and coming off a 4-0
record at Medinah. His
rookie partner makes the
team even more daunting.
Gallacher, the only
Scottish player at
Gleneagles, lives about
35 miles (55 kilometers)
away. He received the
loudest cheer during the
opening ceremony.
"Absolutely buzzing,"
Poulter said. "Playing
with Stevie G, home course, in Scotland, first
Ryder Cup. It's going to be amazing. I can't
wait to smash it down the middle."
Spieth and Reed sounded up for the chal-
"I don't think you could have picked out
two people that we want to play against
more," Spieth said. "I feel like our job is to
win a point. We can do that with those two
guys. We're going to really lower their team
morale, I feel like."
McGinley sat out two of his rookies —
Victor Dubuisson of France and Jamie
Donaldson of Wales. Also sitting out are Lee
Westwood, who has been in every Ryder Cup
since 1997, and McDowell.
Watson is sitting out Jim Furyk and Matt
Kuchar, who are Nos. 4 and 9 in the world.
Furyk, however, is 1W-8L-1D in fourballs,
with his only victory in 2006 with Tiger
Woods as his partner. Also sitting are Hunter
Mahan and Zach Johnson, both extremely
accurate and perhaps better suited for four-
somes in the afternoon.
Both captains said their plan was for all 12
players to be on the course by the end of
"People are going to say there is real
strength at the top, real strength at the bot-
tom," McGinley said. "It's really strength all
over. I really, really rate this American team.
We're going to have to be on if we're going to
beat them."
The Americans have not trailed after the
opening session since 2006, though Bubba
Watson was not sure a lead was critical — not
after what happened at Medinah two years
ago when Europe staged the greatest come-
back away from home.
"We saw in 2012 that obviously a hot start
is not the key," the Masters champ said. "It's
about finishing."

division. That was huge,” New York coach
Tom Coughlin said. “It’s exciting to be in
the hunt, and by being able to come out of
here with a win, hopefully we have a chance
to be.”
Donnell — it’s pronounced “don-EHL”,
not “DON-ehl” — beat a trio of defenders for
his hat trick of touchdowns: linebacker
Perry Riley, safety Brandon Meriweather
and rookie cornerback Baushad Breeland.
They barely knew what hit them.
“He’s better than what we thought,”
Meriweather said. “And by the time we made
that adjustment, he was three touchdowns
Donnell finished with seven catches for
54 yards. He had only one career touchdown
catch entering the game, but he now leads
the Giants this season in TD catches (4) and
overall receptions (25). Daniel Fells had a
2-yard scoring catch in the third quarter,
which means tight ends have snagged seven
of Manning’s nine TD passes this season.
New York’s Victor Cruz added six catches
for 108 yards, his second consecutive
100-yard game.
Kirk Cousins and his receivers weren’t
anywhere near as efficient for the Redskins,
whose six giveaways led to 31 points for
the Giants. A strip-sack by Mathias
Kiwanuka set up New York’s first touch-
down, Trumaine McBride’s strip of tight end

ARLINGTON, Texas — The Oakland
Athletics lost a chance to clinch their third
straight trip to the playoffs before their game
in Texas started.
Yet another loss to the last-place Rangers
kept the A’s from at least getting a little closer
to one of those ALwild-card spots.
Adrian Beltre hit a walk-off home run in the
ninth inning for Texas’ 12th win in 13 games,
and Oakland’s magic number for clinching the
postseason remained at two with a 2-1 loss
Thursday night.
The A’s (86-73) already knew they were
going to have to wait at least another day to
celebrate when Seattle won at Toronto 7-5 in an
afternoon game shown on the big video board
in the Rangers’ ballpark.
Their seventh loss in 10 games dropped
them out of a tie for the wild-card lead with
Kansas City, which beat the Chicago White
Sox 6-3. With three games left, the A’s still
need a combination of Oakland wins and
Seattle losses totaling two in order to clinch.
“They’re all different, but the common
denominator is we’re not scoring any runs,”
said Oakland manager Bob Melvin, whose
team was swept by Texas at home last week.
“We’re getting opportunities to do it and we’re
still not getting them in.”
Beltre sent a drive just over the wall in right
field off Luke Gregerson (5-5) with one out for
his team-leading 19th homer of the season and
just his second since Aug. 10. It was the first
walk-off homer of the season for the Rangers.
Texas closer Neftali Feliz (2-1) pitched a
scoreless ninth.
“It’s been fun,” said Beltre, who dodged one
dousing during an on-field interview but could-
n’t avoid a drenching from a second bucket.
“We’ve been playing very well.”
Oakland’s Coco Crisp reached base five times
on two singles and three walks, but Josh
Reddick went 0 for 5 behind him and never
moved him up to second base.
The A’s put the leadoff runner on five times in
seven innings against Colby Lewis, but he
pitched around five walks and six hits with
seven strikeouts.
With his season-ending no-decision, the 35-
year-old Texas right-hander coming off partial
hip replacement surgery ended up tied with
Japanese ace Yu Darvish for the team lead with
10 wins.
“We talked all season about how inspira-
tional he is,” Texas manager Tim Bogar said. “It
was fun to watch Colby go out there and fight
through that and get through seven innings.”
Jason Hammel made his first start for
Oakland since the birth of his second child over
the weekend in Massachusetts. He had a one-
hitter in the sixth when Leonys Martin reached
on a bunt single with two outs, stole second
and scored on Elvis Andrus’single for a 1-1 tie.
The right-hander, just 2-6 since coming over
from the Chicago Cubs in a trade at the dead-
line, was replaced after allowing consecutive
singles to Beltre and Jake Smolinski to start
the seventh. Dan Otero got two strikeouts to
keep the Rangers from taking the lead.
“Sometimes you’ve got to make one run
stand up and I didn’t do that, so I’m pretty
disappointed,” Hammel said. “It just
stinks it’s two little light hits that end up
tying the ball game.”
Brandon Moss is planning to have sur-
gery following the season after an MRI
revealed torn cartilage in his right hip.

Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford each
hit a solo homer and Sandoval produced his
biggest day of 2014.
Before the game, Giants manager Bruce
Bochy said his players would celebrate their
first playoff berth since winning the 2012
World Series. Once San Francisco came back to
win, that could be done with a bit more fervor.
Belt splashed a home run into McCovey
Cove leading off the second, the 68th time a
Giants player homered into the bay beyond
the right-field arcade and the fourth by Belt.
Crawford hit his career-best 10th home run
in the fourth against Andrew Cashner.
“Their game plan was definitely different
than the other night,” Cashner said. “I made
some good pitches here and there but overall
I kind of missed location for the most part. I
had more balls overall up in the zone than
down in the zone.”
Sandoval hit a sacrifice fly and a trio of RBI
singles as the Giants won for the 11th time in
their last 13 home games. Now they are hop-
ing a successful weekend will earn them a
home date for Wednesday’s one-game wild-
card playoff.
San Francisco’s Yuseiro Petit was in line to
end a two-start losing streak, but the Giants
couldn’t hold a 6-0 lead.

49ers preview
M-Ajumped out to a 15-14 lead.
The teams seesawed late in the set, and
Hillsdale even earned a game-point at 24-23.
But a pair of dynamic diving save in the front
row by M-A’s Eliza Grover and Jacqueline
Disanto prolonged a rally which ended with
Sales scoring a kill on a dump shot to tie it
24-24. Grover ultimately scored the match-
point kill to end it.
“They started out tentative and not really
in a groove, but once they started playing, it
shows how good this team is,” Whitmill
said. “These kids are very, very good.”
Disanto is an interesting component to
the Bears’ mix. Even though she is in her
first year with the varsity team, Disanto spe-
cializes in beach volleyball, a sport in which
she excelled over the summer with current St.
Francis sophomore Brigitte Canty playing
in the California Beach Volleyball
“We haven’t figured out how to completely
utilize her yet,” Whitmill said. “But what
people don’t know about her is she is proba-
bly one of our three or four best pure volley-
ball players on this team. … She’s a very,
very well-rounded skill player, and she’ll
probably be playing Division I sand volley-
ball … after high school.”
M-Ajunior Leanna Collins totaled a match-
high 11 kills and provided valuable leader-
ship on the floor amid Game 3. A regular
starter now, Collins can relate to the jitters of
some of her untested teammates, as she was
herself a reserve player at the outset of her
freshman year in 2012 in M-A’s Central
Coast Section championship season.
“We practice super hard and all these girls
know they can come out and perform well,”
Collins said. “Honestly, [our coaches] have
told us that the girls who are in the normal
spots should help the other girls out and
make sure we get into a good groove. And we
ended up being able to play well after that.”
Whitmill credited the demeanor of his
entire starting lineup with helping fuel the
“The main thing is, when they’re not play-
ing well … for the girls that normally start
to be getting frustrated or upset at the kids
that are out there that are not playing that
well. But with this team, with those kids,
they are very supportive, very encouraging.
I think that really helps them,” Whitmill
Hillsdale is currently missing two of its
best players 6-2 junior middle hitter
Danika Ferguson, who is likely to return
next week. Thursday was her fourth game
out of action due to illness. Also, senior
setter Samantha Key is out with an ACL
injury. At
best, Key
will return
late in the
s e a s o n ,
according to
Hillsdale head coach Dwight Crump.
While Cherene Uale tabbed a team-hgih
seven kills and Nicole Arshad contributed
five, it would have made a big difference had
the Knight been fully healthy, Crump said.
“It would have been a huge difference,”
Crump said. “It would have went four
games, maybe five. That’s how big a dif-
ference it is.”
Hillsdale was plagued by hitting errors
early on, totaling 10 errors along in Game 2.
“There were a lot of errors on our part that
made a big difference in the game,” Crump
said. “It was in the third game they eliminat-
ed the errors and played like I knew they
should play.”
Sales paced the Bears with 15 assists while
starting sophomore setter Kirby Knapp had
13 assists. Ally Ostrow added 11 digs. M-A
totaled eight blocks as a team with Collins,
Ostrow and Grover tabbing two apiece.
In other PAL Bay Division action,
Burlingame (1-1 in PAL Bay, 10-6 overall)
topped Sequoia (1-1, 11-3), 18-25, 25-16,

Kings to a 4-3 exhibition victory over the
Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night.
Jordan Nolan and Tyler Toffoli also had
goals for the defending Stanley Cup champi-
ons and Martin Jones made 25 saves.
Emerson Etem, Dany Heatley and Ryan
Kesler scored for the Ducks and John Gibson
stopped 31 shots.
Kesler, acquired from Vancouver in a draft-day
trade after spending his first 10 NHL seasons
with the Canucks, played his first game with
the Ducks and skated on a line between Jakob
Silfverberg and left wing Patrick Maroon.
Kesler played almost 17 minutes before get-
ting his first shot on goal, converting
Maroon's pass from behind the net with 8:10
left in the third period to tie it at 3 — just 37
seconds after Toffoli scored on a breakaway to
put the Kings ahead.
Last season, the Southern California rivals
faced each other in a playoff series for the first
time. The Kings beat the Pacific Division
champs in a seven-game Western Conference
semifinal and went on to win their second NHL
title in three years.

A spooky surrealism has been
the specialty of the Oregon-
based animation studio Laika,
the Pacific Northwest purveyors
of 3-D stop-motion.
The self-stylized descendants
of the Brothers Grimm and Neil
Gaiman (whose “Coraline” they
adapted for their first of three
features), Laika seems to yearn
for a little more darkness, a
touch of Gothic in our children’s
films — a laudable and very wel-
come impulse that makes one
inclined to celebrate their fanci-
ful grotesqueries on intentions
Laika’s talented animators,
though, often seem to conjure
their puppetry whimsy quicker
than their screenwriters can spin
a story. That was the case with
their last one, the brilliant-look-
ing but meandering
‘Boxtrolls’ has demented charm

lain voiced by Ben Kingsley,

puppet actor, he actually IS precious cargo:
the result of countless hours of conceptual-
ization and craft; a work of art with a joint-
ed metal skeleton, silicone skin and hair
made from hemp.
If the world of “The Boxtrolls” feels real
to moviegoers, that’s because it is. From
the cobblestone streets of Cheesebridge to
the underground wonderland the boxtrolls
call home, everything shown onscreen in
the film really exists at Laika Studios just
outside Portland, Oregon. Each fantastical
character and set is meticulously built by
hand. The puppet stars have working joints
so they can be moved into position and
photographed frame by frame, just as stop-
motion animation has been done for the
past century. But it takes a high-tech touch
to really make “The Boxtrolls” come alive.
“We don’t want for a second for the audi-
ence to even think these are dolls,” said
Laika Studios chief Travis Knight. “I want
them to see them as living, breathing,
emoting things with aspirations and hopes
by bringing subtlety and nuance to the per-
“The Boxtrolls,” in theaters Friday, tells
the story of Eggs (Isaac Hempstead Wright),
a boy raised by boxtrolls since he was a
baby. While the human citizens of
Cheesebridge believe the subterranean box-
clad creatures are evil, Eggs knows they’re
sweet and resourceful, coming above ground
at night to collect garbage and transform it
into spectacular machinery for their
bustling society. With the help of a curious
girl, Winnie (Elle Fanning), Eggs fights to
protect the boxtrolls from Snatcher, who
would have them eradicated.
Knight said it’s the 9-year-old studio’s
most ambitious film to date. It features more
puppet stars and advanced technology than
Laika’s first two features, “Coraline” and
“ParaNorman,” which each earned Oscar
The puppets start as sketches and clay
models before they’re built as working
actors that can do everything the story
demands of the character. The costume
department stitches tiny outfits for the pup-
pet actors to wear. Artists make extra hands
for all characters (with floral wire inside for
mobility), because hands are the first to
break. Some puppets have “stunt legs” to
perform action sequences.
Snatcher is among the tallest puppet
stars. Eggs stands at about 9 ? inches,
Knight said, while the boxtrolls are 3 to 4
inches high.
Their faces are their most high-tech fea-
ture. Through computer design, rapid proto-
typing and 3-D printing, artists are able to
create an infinite range of facial expression
possibilities for the puppet actors.
“It’s like a little Mr. Potato Head,” Knight
Each puppet has a collection of detach-
able, interchangeable upper and lower facial
pieces that can be combined to convey var-
ious emotions and phonetic sounds. “Facial
librarians” on staff keep track of all the
computer-printed expressions. When an
animator takes on a scene, he checks out a
set of face parts for his puppet actors. The
set comes packaged in what looks like a
pizza box.
“There were 15,000 different pieces for
Eggs’ faces,” said Anthony Stacchi, who co-
directed the film with Graham Annable. “The
combinations you could put them in were
over a million.”
The celebrity voice actors provide the
character’s vocal personality, and the ani-
mators and puppets provide their physical
performance. Frame by frame, the anima-
tors translate magnet-backed face pieces
into human expressions and incremental
movements into fluid motion as the puppets
enact the story.
“It’s all the different parts that inform the
(animation) process — the rapid prototyp-
ing, the 3-D printing ... the digital photog-
raphy, the different lighting techniques —
those are all things that ultimately change
what comes out at the other end,” Knight
said. “But the process at its very core is the
same: It’s still an animator on a set moving
a puppet a frame at a time and bringing it to
life that way. ”
Continued from page 17
“ParaNorman,” about a boy who alone sees
and uncomfortably lives with the lingering
spirits of dead people, and it’s true with
their latest, “The Boxtrolls.”
The film is set in the British village of
Cheesebridge where cheese is the most
prized currency and the town’s aristocracy
— a trio of clueless men dubbed “White
Hats” for their tall head-ware — spend their
time slathering over gouda. (In both loca-
tion and cheese worship, Laika is intruding
somewhat on the territory of its sunnier
stop-motion rivals, Aardman Animation of
“Wallace and Gromit.”)
The supposed scourge of Cheesebridge
are the Boxtrolls, little nocturnal creatures
who wear discarded boxes like a turtle shell
and scavenge for mechanical parts on
nighttime streets.
Archibald Snatcher (a deliciously
snarling Ben Kingsley), having promised
to rid the town of the Boxtrolls, hunts
them with his existentially confused
henchmen (Richard Ayoade, Nick Frost),
who — in the movie’s cleverest bit — are
in a quandary over whether they’ve unwit-
tingly become bad guys. “I’m not a
stooge, am I?” wonders one.
The Boxtrolls — naturally, not the mon-
sters they’ve been made out to be — live
peacefully underground, charmingly stack-
ing themselves for bed as if preparing for
UPS pickup. They mutter a little like the
minions of “Despicable Me,” fleeing like
springing accordions or camouflaging
themselves beside a fruit cart.
Among them is a child (voiced by Isaac
Hempstead Wright) they’ve raised from
infancy named “Eggs” (they all take their
names from their boxes, like “Fish” and
“Shoe”). He begins to confidently explore
Cheesebridge above ground, defending his
Boxtroll brethren, and befriending the
assertive, overlooked daughter of one of
the White Hats, Winnie (Elle Fanning).
The grubby Victorian designs overseen
by directors Graham Annable (the story
artist of “ParaNorman”) and Anthony
Stacchi (co-director of the 2006 animated
film “Open Season”) are ultimately a little
suffocating. “Boxtrolls,” loosely based on
Alan Snow’s “Here Be Monsters,” belongs
to a subgenre called Steampunk, a kind of
Victorian fantasy full of neo-futuristic
machines. (It’s a little like a Tom Waits
The sensibility here is probably more
than some small children will enjoy.
Leaches, for example, don’t come standard
in kids’ movies. But “The Boxtrolls,”
despite a rather uncertainly structured
story by screenwriters Irena Brignull and
Adam Pava, has its pleasantly demented
Surely, it’s only to the good that an ani-
mated film can include a devilish little girl
like Winnie lamenting that the Boxtrolls
aren’t as fearsome as foretold: “I was prom-
ised rivers of blood!”
“The Boxtrolls,” a Focus Features
release, is rated PG by the Motion Picture
Association of America for “action, some
peril and mild rude humor.” Running time:
96 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four.

NEW YORK — The Fox network isn’t
responding to suggestions that it edit its
upcoming crossover episode of “The
Simpsons” and “Family Guy” to remove a
joke where the punch line is “your sister’s
being raped.”
The line appears in Sunday’s much-await-
ed special where Bart Simpson and his fam-
ily hang around with Stewie and the rest of
the “Family Guy” crew, and has already cir-
culated in a trailer for the episode that Fox
released online over the summer.
It punctuates a scene in which the incorri-
gible Bart is instructing Stewie Griffin in
the art of the prank phone call. Bart dials
the owner of Moe’s Tavern and asks whether
there is anyone there with the last name
Keybum, first name Lee. When Moe calls
out to his patrons, asking for a “leaky
bum,” everyone gets a laugh.
Stewie thinks that’s cool, and asks to
make his own prank call.
“Hello, Moe?” he says. “Your sister’s
being raped.”
Tim Winter, president of the advocacy
group Parents Television Council, said he’s
a longtime fan of Matt Groening, creator of
“The Simpsons,” and sought out the trailer
when it was released.
“I was blown out of my shoes when I saw
the scene with the rape joke in it,” Winter
said. “It really troubled me.”
He said he found it particularly offensive
in the context of stories about sexual
assaults on college campuses and, most
recently, talk about abusive treatment of
women by some players in the National
Football League. He said when rape is
accepted as a punch line for a joke in enter-
tainment, “it becomes less outrageous in
real life.”
Winter said he wrote to Groening,
“Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane and
Fox in August, asking that the joke be

Playwright Joshua Harmon is a 31-
year-old who shows great promise, as
evidenced by “Bad Jews.”
Presented in its Bay Area premiere to
open Magic Theatre’s 48th season, the
play looks at what it means to be a Jew
as seen mainly through the eyes of two
antagonistic cousins, both in their
20s, as are the play’s other two charac-
It takes place in a New York City stu-
dio apartment the evening of the fami-
ly patriarch’s funeral. Jonah (Kenny
Toll), a college student who co-owns
the apartment, and his cousin, Daphna
(Rebecca Benhayon), a senior at
Vassar, are staying there for the funeral
and shiva.
They’re awaiting the other owner,
Jonah’s brother, Liam (Max Rosenak),
a University of Chicago graduate stu-
dent who missed the funeral because he
lost his phone while skiing at Aspen.
They’re surprised when Liam arrives
with his gentile girlfriend, Melody
(Riley Krull), whom he intends to
marry, they learn.
Daphna and Liam have long been at
odds, mainly because she’s so insis-
tent on observing Jewish traditions,
while he isn’t.
Their conflict comes to a head over
their grandfather’s Chai, a symbol that
means “life” in Hebrew and is sacred to
Jews. Daphna wants the Chai because
she believes she’s the most observant
Jew of the three grandchildren.
Liam wants to give it to Melody
instead of an engagement ring, just as
their grandfather gave it to their grand-
mother when they became engaged
after World War II. The Chai also sym-
bolizes their grandfather’s survival of
the Holocaust.
During the 90-minute, intermis-
sionless play, both Daphna and Liam
have long, vitriolic speeches
expressing their disdain for each
other. Stuck in the middle, Jonah just
wants to stay out of the argument,
and Melody pleads for them to treat
each other as human beings.
Director Ryan Guzzo Purcell paces
the action well, but some of his block-
ing poses sight-line difficulties on the
right and left sides of the audience.
However, he has chosen his actors
with care. Benhayon as Daphna and
Rosenak as Liam both handle their
long speeches capably, while Tol l
shows Jonah to be a man who cares
more than he initially reveals. Krull
embodies Melody’s sweetness and lack
of artifice.
“The play begs the distinction
between religion and tribe,” Magic’s
producing artistic director Loretta
Greco writes in the program. It’s a fas-
cinating look at how young people
today are deciding if and how they will
preserve their family’s legacy and tra-
“Bad Jews” will continue at the
Magic Theatre, Building D, Fort
Mason Center, San Francisco, through
Oct. 5. For tickets and information,

Museum of Art occupies a dramatic, 81,000-
square-foot geometrically oblique building
just across from Roanoke’s historic
Marketplace Square. Designed by Los
Angeles architect Randall Stout and com-
pleted in 2008, the museum, with its
swooping and soaring metal roof, is a dra-
matic architectural presence that has estab-
lished itself as a major force in the life of
Roanoke’s thriving arts community.
Taubman Museum Executive Director
Della Watkins said, “The Taubman Museum
of Art, with its gorgeous, iconic building
and inspiring programs and art, is an engag-
ing social, educational and cultural organi-
zation that is fast becoming a vital part of
the fabric of Virginia’s Blue Ridge.”
TION. The Taubman’s historic focus has
been on American art, and “Reunion,” a
choice selection from its collection, evi-
dences the breadth of its holdings. Standing
in just one spot in the main exhibition
gallery, a visitor may, for example, see
John Singer Sargent’s grand, larger than life
(over 7-feet tall) Portrait of Norah Gribble
(1888), showing the captivating society
beauty before tragedy befell her; The Brown
Bomber (1938) by Robert Riggs, showing
the electrifying boxing victory of World
Heavyweight Champion Joe Louis over
Max Schmeling; and Norman Rockwell’s
Framed (1946), with its whimsical com-
ment about the interior life of museums.
Other signature works on view until June
27, 2015, include objects by Thomas Hart
Benton, Thomas Eakins, Susan Macdowell
Eakins, George Inness, Judith Leiber,
Winslow Homer, Robert Henri and John
Henry Twachtman. Reunion compactly indi-
cates the range and diversity of the muse-
um’s paintings, sculptures, works on paper
and decorative pieces.
Deputy Director of Exhibitions Amy G.
Moorefield said, “Featuring more than 50
works from the museum’s permanent collec-
tion, Reunion focuses on reuniting our vis-
itors with some of the most compelling and
historically significant works from the
Taubman Museum of Art’s holdings. Many
of the works included in Reunion are desti-
nation pieces that people travel great dis-
tances to view, but of late have been in stor-
age or loaned to other museums. Half of the
work presented is light sensitive works on
paper, meaning that a number of pieces will
be rotated in and out, giving viewers a
chance to see new work periodically
through the run of the exhibition. From
tiny couture handbags by Judith Peto Leiber
to the Framed painting by Norman
Rockwell, there is something for everyone
to see in Reunion.”
Taubman Museum of Art is named in honor
of Ambassador Nicholas F. Taubman and his
wife, Jenny, who were its largest donors.
From 1969-2005, Ambassador Taubman
served as president and CEO of Roanoke-
based Advance Auto Parts, the largest retail-
er of automotive replacement parts and
accessories in the United States. General
admission to the museum remains free cour-
tesy of that company. The Taubman Museum

NEWYORK — In poking fun at the Miss
America pageant on the most recent episode
of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver
reached for the comedic equivalent of low-
hanging fruit. Then he veered into something
wholly unexpected — investigative journal-
His subsequent report questioning the
pageant’s scholarship program was the latest
example of how Oliver has quickly moved
beyond his roots at “The Daily Show” to pro-
duce something distinctive, and usually hilar-
Oliver, who subbed for Jon Stewart as host
of “The Daily Show” last summer and began
his own HBO weekly show in April, often
devotes about half of his 30 minutes to a sin-
gle topic below the headlines. He’s discussed
gender pay inequality, anti-gay laws in
Uganda, net neutrality and the politics of the
World Cup.
Remember, this is a comedy show.
His 15-minute Miss America segment
began with jokes about how dated a beauty
pageant seems, and his incredulity at some of
the questions contestants are asked. He took
some shots at Donald Trump, who owns a
competing pageant. Then
he zeroed in on the Miss
America organization’s
claim of making $45 mil-
lion in scholarship
money available to young
women each year.
“Forty-five million,”
Oliver said. “That is an
unbelievable amount of
money. As in, I literally
did not believe that.”
His staff researched documents, finding a
federal disclosure form that said the pageant
spent $482,000 in scholarships in 2012.
They researched tax forms on statewide pag-
eants, finding several scholarship offers that
couldn’t possibly be awarded at the same time
were added together to help reach the final fig-
ure. In other words, people shouldn’t confuse
money that may be available with money
That’s journalism, minus any apparent
attempt to let pageant officials offer their
side. The organization subsequently issued a
statement not specifically addressing Oliver’s
charge that Miss America was being mislead-
ing, but said that “as with any scholarship,
the full amount awarded may not always be
used as recipients plans change or evolve.”

removed when the episode is shown on

Fox’s entertainment division,
through a spokeswoman, said it would
not comment on the criticism or
whether there are any second thoughts
about the joke.
Katherine Hull Fliflet, spokeswoman
for the Washington-based Rape, Abuse
and Incest National Network, said she
did not find the line offensive.
“I think the show is making it clear
that rape is not funny by how they are
positioning the joke,” Fliflet said.
“It’s my hope that would be the view-
ers’ take-away. ”
RAINN, which says it is the nation’s
largest anti-sexual assault organiza-
tion and operates a rape hotline, works
with creators in Hollywood to help
them depict sexual assault realistical-
l y. The group lists actress Christina
Ricci as a national spokesperson.
The National Organization for
Women didn’t respond to requests for
comment on the Fox comedies.
MacFarlane brought up the line dur-
ing a recent interview with
Entertainment Weekly, predicting he
will get attacked for it in the media.
“But in context,” he said, “it’s pretty
funny. ”
Winter said he didn’t think the sub-
ject was worth joking about, and said
he was particularly concerned about its
exposure to younger viewers who may
be fans of “The Simpsons,” but are not
familiar with the “Family Guy” style
of comedy.
“We don’t mock certain groups
because we realize that it is highly
insensitive and morally wrong,” he
said. “Why wouldn’t we do the same
thing about sexual assault?”

investigation into the police shooting
of an unarmed 18-year-old in Ferguson,
Missouri, won’t leave until a replace-
ment is confirmed, which means he
could remain in office for months.
Senate Republicans signaled they
were preparing for a confirmation fight
after years of battles with Holder. Said
Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell: “I
will be scrutinizing the president’s
replacement nominee to ensure the
Justice Department finally returns to
prioritizing law enforcement over parti-
san concerns.”
In an emotional ceremony at the
White House, Obama called Holder “the
people’s lawyer” and credited him with
driving down both the nation’s crime
and incarceration rate — the first time
they have declined together in more
than 40 years.
“Through it all, he’s shown a deep and
abiding fidelity to one of our most cher-
ished ideals as a people, and that is equal
justice under the law,” Obama said.
Holder responded by speaking of how
he was inspired as a boy by Robert
Kennedy’s leadership on civil rights at
the Justice Department, his voice chok-
ing as he expressed his thanks to Obama
and his own family. “You got through
it,” Obama could be heard telling Holder
as the audience stood and applauded.
In a speech earlier this week, Holder
described the dual perspective he
brought to the job and how it applied to
the Ferguson shooting, in which a
young black man was shot and killed by
a white policeman. He said he had the
utmost respect for police as a former
prosecutor and the brother of an officer.
But, he added, “As an African-American
man who has been stopped and searched
by police in situations where such
actions were not warranted, I also carry
with me an understanding of the mistrust
that some citizens harbor.”
Holder told The Associated Press in an
interview that he’s not sure whether the
Justice Department will finish its inves-
tigation into the shooting before he
leaves. “I don’t want to rush them,”
Holder said. He said once out of office,
he will direct attention to “issues that
have animated me” during his tenure,
including criminal justice and civil
“If you asked me what my biggest
regret was, I would say that it was the
failure to pass any responsible and rea-
sonable gun safety legislation after the
shootings in Newtown,” Holder said. He
said he thought in the aftermath of the
school shootings in Connecticut that
the nation would embrace change that
was “not radical but really reasonable”
on gun ownership.
Holder aggressively enforced the
Voting Rights Act, addressed drug-sen-
tencing guidelines that led to disparities
between white and black convicts,
extended legal benefits to same-sex cou-
ples and refused to defend a law that
allowed states to disregard gay mar-
riages. He oversaw the decision to pros-
ecute terror suspects in U.S. civilian
courts instead of at Guantanamo Bay and
helped establish a legal rationale for
lethal drone strikes on suspects over-
He was a lightning rod for conserva-
tive critics and faced a succession of
controversies over, among other
things, an ultimately abandoned plan to
try terrorism suspects in New York City,
a botched gun-running probe along the
Southwest border that prompted
Republican calls for his resignation,
and what was seen as a failure to hold
banks accountable for the financial sys-
tem’s near-meltdown.
The Republican-controlled House
voted two years ago to make Holder the
first sitting Cabinet member to be held
in contempt of Congress — for refusing
to turn over documents in the gun-run-
ning operation known as Operation
Fast and Furious. The administration is
still fighting in court to keep the docu-
ments confidential.
Only three other attorneys general in
U.S. history have served longer than the
63-year-old Holder: William Wirt in the
administrations of James Monroe and
John Quincy Adams, Janet Reno in the
Bill Clinton administration and Homer
Cummings for Franklin Roosevelt.
Holder also is one of the longest-serv-
ing of Obama’s original Cabinet mem-
bers. Two others remain: Education
Secretary Arne Duncan and Agriculture
Secretary Tom Vilsack.
Holder and his wife are close personal-
ly to the Obamas, having recently vaca-
tioned together on Martha’s Vineyard,
and Obama said Holder told him of his
timing over the summer. The attorney
general had expressed his desire to con-
clude his long term for some time.
White House officials said Obama had
not made a final decision on a replace-
ment for Holder, who was one of the
most liberal voices in his Cabinet.
White House press secretary Josh
Earnest said naming a new attorney gen-
eral would be a high priority for the
Some possible candidates that have
been mentioned among administration
officials include Solicitor General Don
Verrilli; Deputy U.S. Attorney General
James Cole; former White House
Counsel Kathy Ruemmler; Preet
Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the
Southern District of New York; Jenny
Durkan, a former U.S. attorney in
Washington state, and Sen. Sheldon
Whitehouse, a former Rhode Island
attorney general.

Mateo location for 30 years and has another store in
Redwood City, Dehoff said. The family has been selling tick-
ets since 1985, about as long as the lottery’s been around,
Dehoff said.
“It’s just the attraction of getting customers in. It’s one
more draw to the store, having them be able to come in for
something else, so we’re always looking for all the different
ways to get customers to come in,” Dehoff said. “All these
years of selling tickets, we’ve never had any significant size
winner. This is by far the largest by a long shot.”
Dehoff said the family is still digesting the exciting news
and they haven’t decided what to do with the proceeds.
Parashak said the lottery happily hands out a half-percent
bonus of the total winnings, up to $1 million, to the retail-
ers who sell a ticket that matches at least five of six numbers
of a minimum $1 million prize.
“It helps them business wise. They’re lucky just like the
winners are, that’s how we look at it. They’re obviously the
bread and butter of what the lottery does,” Parashak said. “It
just gives more of an incentive to the sellers.”
Since Wednesday’s win, the Powerball jackpot rolls back
to $40 million and increases based on the ticket sales with a
minimum of $10 million roll for each draw, Parashak said.
Numbers are picked Wednesday and Saturdays.
The Bay Area has had a massive stroke of luck over the last
year; there have been four Powerball winners in 2014 alone.
A San Bernardino County man was the last to win a
Powerball drawing in California July 19 with a $60 million
AMilpitas man won a $425.83 million Powerball jackpot
Feb. 19, landing him as the winner of the largest in jackpot
ever won in California, the fourth largest in Powerball jack-
pot of all time and the sixth largest in U.S. history, accord-
ing to the California Lottery.
The nationwide Powerball is played in 43 other states,
Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Parashak
“It’s been wild,” Parashak said. “It seems like the Bay Area
has been obviously one of our luckier regions in the state to
say the least.”

money available,” said Councilman
Charles Stone. “We are having to
struggle to maintain our infrastructure
as it is. So I think it was necessary for
us to stand up and work something out.
And it looks like we’re going to be
able to do that, which I’m very pleased
The money will be paid to the state,
which it will distribute to San Mateo
County and a large portion of which
will ultimately be returned to the city
with the remainder to special and
school districts, Rennie said.
The period of time in question was
between Jan. 1, 2011, and June 30,
2012, according to a letter to the city
from the California Department of
Finance, but Belmont’s redevelopment
agency has a long history.
Established in 1981, it helped fund
more than $11 million in projects such
as storm drain and street improve-
ments, the acquisition of its City Hall
site, Ralston Avenue improvements,
construction of a senior center and
other projects. Redevelopment agen-
cies were formed to keep tax revenue in
a specific area of California cities for
improvements in often blighted areas.
Because other government agencies
did not receive tax revenue from the
redevelopment area, some cities estab-
lished certain partnerships with spe-
cial and school districts for projects
that benefited both. Gov. Jerry Brown
and the California Legislature dis-
solved these long-standing funding
mechanisms in 2012 to assist with the
state’s budget deficit.
Belmont was not alone in its pro-
ceedings in the wake of Brown’s deci-
sion. California cities often estab-
lished new successor agencies to
replace and wind down its redevelop-
ment agencies. Belmont, along with
numerous other cities, were confronted
with large demands to return taxes
redevelopment agencies siphoned off
from local districts and schools, which
eventually led successor agencies to
sue the state in response.
“It was a policy decision, not just
the governor’s, but the Legislature’s as
well, that there’s a higher priority for
those tax dollars to go to the schools
and local governments, special dis-
tricts,” said H.D. Palmer, spokesman
for the state’s Department of Finance.
“And I think it’s important to note that
once all the enforceable obligations
are paid, … all of those dollars are dis-
tributed back to schools, cities and
special districts.”
Currently, there are nearly 200 law-
suits pending against the state, but
Palmer said “it’s our preference to try
to solve any dispute related to this
through negotiations rather than liti-
gation.” In San Mateo County, Foster
City and Redwood City filed suits
against the state and lost. Redwood
City is currently appealing its case.
Rennie said the audit conducted by
the state’s Department of Finance was
flawed as funds from Belmont’s rede-
velopment agencies weren’t trans-
ferred to the city, but paid for goods
and services related to development
and infrastructure improvements.
Another legal ground for the suit was
most of the improvements were paid
for through bonds, which are not sub-
ject to rules governing redevelopment
agencies, Rennie said.
Although the process has been labo-
rious, Mayor Warren Lieberman and
Stone said the city’s success resulted
from the tireless work of Rennie, its
Finance Director Thomas Fil, City
Manager Greg Scoles and staff.
“I’m pleased that for the most part
the state listened to our position and
we prevailed for the most part. That’s a
very good thing for the city, ”
Lieberman said. “In some ways, some
of the money will end up (coming back
to the city) unrestricted. So we’re in
good shape in all of this.”

acknowledged privately.
An official with U.S. Immigration
and Customs Enforcement revealed
that about 70 percent of immigrant
families the Obama administration had
released into the U.S. never showed up
weeks later for follow up appoint-
The ICE official made the disclosure
in a confidential meeting at its
Washington headquarters with immi-
gration advocates participating in a
federal working group on detention
and enforcement policies. The
Associated Press obtained an audio
recording of Wednesday’s meeting and
separately interviewed participants.
On the recording obtained by the AP,
the government did not specify the
total number of families released into
the U.S. since October. Since only a
few hundred families have already been
returned to their home countries and
limited U.S. detention facilities can
house only about 1,200 family mem-
bers, the 70 percent figure suggests the
government released roughly 41,000
members of immigrant families who
subsequently failed to appear at federal
immigration offices.
The official, who was not identified
by name on the recording obtained by
the AP, also said final deportation had
been ordered for at least 860 people
traveling in families caught at the bor-
der since May but only 14 people had
reported as ordered.
The Homeland Security Department
did not dispute the authenticity of the
In a statement emailed Thursday
afternoon, ICE spokeswoman Gillian
Christensen said the no-show rate
“represents an approximate snapshot
of individuals encountered beginning
in May” who didn’t reported to ICE.
Christiansen added that some of those
people may still be reporting to immi-
gration court hearings and a “signifi-
cant” number of deportation cases are
still pending before judges.
The AP reported in June that the
administration would not say publicly
how many immigrant families from
Central America caught crossing into
the U.S. it had released in recent
months or how many of those subse-
quently reported back to the govern-
ment after 15 days as directed. The AP
noted that senior U.S. officials directly
familiar with the issue, including at
the Homeland Security Department and
White House, had dodged the answer
on at least seven occasions over two
weeks, alternately saying that they did
not know the figure or didn’t have it
immediately at hand.
The Homeland Security
Department’s public affairs office dur-
ing the same period did not answer
roughly a dozen requests for the fig-
More than 66,000 immigrants trav-
eling as families, mostly mothers and
young children, have been apprehend-
ed at the border since the start of the
budget year in October. Nearly 60,000
of those immigrants are from
Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala
and cannot be immediately repatriated,
so the government has been releasing
them into the U.S. and telling them to
report within 15 days to the nearest
Immigration and Customs
Enforcement offices.
At the meeting, the ICE official
acknowledged the no-show figures
while explaining the administration’s
decision in June to open a temporary
detention center for families in
Artesia, New Mexico. Asecond immi-
gration jail in Texas was later convert-
ed for families and can house about 530
people. A third such detention center
will open in Texas later this year.
Before the new facility in Artesia, the
government had room for fewer than
100 people at its only family deten-
tion center in Pennsylvania.
Immigration advocates have com-
plained that the new detention centers
were punishing immigrants who ulti-
mately may win lawful asylum claims
to remain in the U.S. In the meeting,
they also questioned whether immigra-
tion officials had clearly and properly
instructed immigrants to meet with
federal agents within 15 days.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Unexpected changes
and unforeseen issues will arise. Trying to stick to a
schedule will end in frustration. Throw out your game
plan and go with the flow for best results.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Be relentless in your
pursuits. You have the know-how to reach your
destination. You’ll face some objection to your plans,
but you are the best judge of what is right for you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Use your talents
and good will to help people in your area who are in
need. An association with a charitable or benevolent
agency will bring you positive recognition.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Overconfidence will
be your downfall. Keep your plans a secret if you don’t
want someone to thwart your success. Be wary of
anyone who presses you for information.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — It’s time to face the
music. You have been avoiding an issue in hopes that it
will disappear, but that isn’t going to happen. You will
sleep better once the matter is resolved.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Implement the
changes around your home that will improve your
standard of living. An unanticipated windfall will
come your way through a forgotten investment or an
old debt owed to you.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Stick to your principles,
but be mindful of others. Relationship woes can be
resolved if you are patient and understanding. Don’t let
minor matters get blown out of proportion.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Assess your current
situation. It’s time to strengthen your skills by
attending a course or researching a career that
interests you. Set your goal high and do what’s
necessary to reach it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Stick with tried and true
methods. Your innovative ideas have value, but you
will have trouble gaining support if they are considered
far-fetched or unreasonable.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Self-improvement
projects should be for your benefit, not someone
else’s. Be true to yourself and don’t try to imitate
someone else. Be proud of your originality.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — It’s a good time to discuss
your goals. Seek out the help of someone whose
opinion you respect. Once your intentions are divulged,
you will be offered help and support.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t let anyone rush
or push you today. You are likely to miss a step and
be forced to start all over. An unhurried approach will
bring the best results.

NEW YORK — Iraq’s prime minister said
Thursday that captured Islamic State mili-
tants have told Iraqi intelligence agents of
an alleged plot to attack subways in the
United States and Paris, but French and
American officials said they had no such
A senior Obama administration official
said no one in the U.S. government is aware
of such a plot, adding that the claim was
never brought up in meetings with Iraqi offi-
cials this week in New York. President
Barack Obama met with Prime Minister
Haidar al-Abadi on Wednesday. The adminis-
tration official was not authorized to discuss
the matter publicly by name and spoke on
condition of anonymity.
There was no immediate comment from
France. A half-dozen French officials con-
tacted by the Associated Press said they
knew of no plot.
Al-Abadi said he was told of the purported
plot by officials in Baghdad, and that it was
the work of foreign fighters who had joined
the Islamic State group in Iraq, including
French and U.S. nationals.
Initially the AP quoted al-Abadi as saying
“yes” when asked if an attack was imminent.
Areview of his remarks established that he
actually said, “I’m not sure.”
He said that the attack threat had not been
“No, it has not been disrupted yet ... this is
a network,” he told a meeting with reporters
near the United Nations, where he is attend-
ing the annual General Assembly.
“Today, while I’m here I’m receiving accu-
rate reports from Baghdad that there were
arrests of a few elements and there were net-
works from inside Iraq to have attacks ... on
metros of Paris and U.S.,” al-Abadi said,
speaking in English. “They are not Iraqis.
Some of them are French, some of them are
Americans. But they are in Iraq.”
Later, a senior Iraqi official in New York
qualified the prime minister’s remarks. He
spoke on condition of anonymity because
he was not authorized to make statements on
the record.
“There were serious threats that were
uncovered by Iraqi intelligence, and they
were forwarded to the appropriate security
authorities of our partners. Afull assessment
of the veracity of the intelligence and how
far the plans have gone into implementation
is ongoing,” the official said. “We cannot
further discuss the nature of the threat in the
media, except to reaffirm that Daesh will
continue to endanger international peace and
security unless it is eradicated.”
The recently elected Iraqi leader told jour-
nalists Thursday that the plot was the work
of foreign fighters of the Islamic State group
in Iraq.
Al-Abadi declined to give the location in
the U.S. where such an attack might occur.
The Islamic State extremists’ blitz in Iraq
and Syria prompted the United State to
launch airstrikes in Iraq last month, to aid
Kurdish forces who were battling the mili-
tants and to protect religious minorities.
In addition to the brutality Islamic State
has visited on the people in Iraq and Syria,
western leaders have voiced concern that the
group would move its terror operations out-
side the region.
This week, the U.S. and five allied Arab
states expanded the aerial campaign into
Syria, where the militant group is battling
President Bashar Assad’s forces as well as
Western-backed rebels.
Iraqi PM: Plot to attack
U.S. and Paris subways
By Diaa Hadid
BEIRUT — U.S.-led airstrikes targeted
Syrian oil installations held by the extrem-
ist Islamic State group overnight and early
Thursday, killing at least 19 people as more
families of militants left their key strong-
hold, fearing further raids, activists said.
The strikes aimed to knock out one of the
militants’ main revenue streams — black
market oil sales that the U.S. says earn up to
$2 million a day for the group. That fund-
ing, along with a further estimated $1 mil-
lion a day from other smuggling, theft and
extortion, has been crucial in enabling the
extremists to overrun much of Syria and
neighboring Iraq.
The United States and its Arab allies have
been carrying out strikes in Syria for the
past three days, trying to uproot the group,
which has carved out a self-declared state
straddling the border, imposed a harsh ver-
sion of Islamic law and massacred oppo-
nents. The U.S. has been conducting air
raids against the group in neighboring Iraq
for more than a month.
On the ground, Syria’s civil war raged on
unabated, with government forces taking
back an important industrial area near
Damascus from the rebels, according to
Syrian activists and state media. Activists
also accused President Bashar Assad’s
troops of using an unspecified deadly chem-
ical substance.
The Islamic State group is believed to
control 11 oil fields in Iraq and Syria. The
new strikes involved six U.S. warplanes and
10 more from the United Arab Emirates and
Saudi Arabia, mainly hitting small-scale
refineries used by the militants in eastern
Syria, Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John
Kirby said.
At least 14 militants were killed, accord-
ing to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory
for Human Rights, which monitors the
Syrian conflict through a network of
activists on the ground.
The Observatory and two independent
activists said another five people who lived
near one of the refineries were also killed,
likely the wives and children of the mili-
Kirby said the Pentagon is looking into
reports that civilians were killed but has no
evidence yet.
Other strikes hit checkpoints, com-
pounds, training grounds and vehicles of
the Islamic State group in northern and east-
ern Syria. The raids also targeted two Syrian
military bases that had been seized by the
Islamic State group. In the eastern Syrian
town of Mayadeen, a building used by the
militants as an Islamic court was also hit.
Apparently fearing more strikes, the mil-
itants reduced the number of fighters on their
checkpoints, activists said. Many of the
casualties the group has sustained in the
American-led air raids have been at check-
points. Activists also said that more fami-
lies of Islamic State militants were clearing
out of the city of Raqqa, the group’s de facto
capital, on Thursday, heading eastward.
For some Syrians, the airstrikes were bit-
ter justice.
