Seton Medical Center in Daly City
and its sister facility in Moss Beach
will be sold to Prime Healthcare, a con-
troversial Southern California hospi-
tal chain that some unions decry as pri-
oritizing profits over patient care.
The Daughters of Charity Health
System announced Friday morning
that it will sell its six-hospital chain
which includes Seton and Seton
Coastside in San Mateo County along
with O’Connor Hospital in San Jose,
St. Francis Medical Center in
Lynwood, Saint Louise Regional
Hospital in Gilroy and the statewide
DCHS Medical Foundation.
San Mateo County leaders both local
and in Sacramento expressed worry
about the proposed sale — with
Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, D-South
San Francisco, going so far as to say
he hopes it falls through — because of
potentially negative impacts to the
two area hospitals.
Seton is the largest employer in
Daly City and provides a large chunk
of the county’s care to northern resi-
dents and the low-income which is
why county officials allocated nearly
$19 million in Measure A half-cent
sales tax funds for seismic upgrades at
the aging hospital. Seton Coastside is
a 116-bed skilled nursing facility with
the only 24-hour emergency depart-
ment along the 55-mile coastal stretch
between Daly City and Santa Cruz.
As part of its Measure A funding
agreement with the county, Seton
promised to continue providing safety
net services to low-income residents.
Seton and DCHS had donated $1. 5 mil-

Police search for Belmont
indecent exposure suspect
Friday incident may be linked
to three earlier Palo Alto crimes
By Dennis Culver
Belmont police say a suspect sought
by Palo Alto police for a Thursday inde-
cent exposure incident may have also
made his way to Belmont Friday morn-
Police said they received a call at 7:40
a. m. about an indecent exposure that
occurred in front of Peet’s Coffee in the
1200 block of El Camino Real.
Police said two women in their 20s were inside the coffee
shop near the windows looking out onto El Camino Real
when they saw a four-door BMW parked at the curb and a
man inside masturbating.
One of the women ran outside to get the vehicle’s license
plate number, and the suspect drove off.
Split San Carlos school board

Elementary school district approves 2
percent hike, health care contribution
By Michelle Durand
On a split 3-2 vote, the San Carlos Elementary School
District Board of Trustees approved a 2 percent raise for
teachers in a retroactive agreement that includes $2, 000
toward health care.
The board was frustrated with the process and how it
played out but is now ready to start new, said President Adam
Rak, who was in the majority approving the new contract.
“Let’s put this behind us and work with teachers to move
forward and start fresh, ” Rak said.

San Mateo’s ambitious new culinary
endeavor, the recently opened
KitchenTown, almost dares you to
define it in basic terms.
It is an industrial kitchen, it is a co-
op, it is a hip cafe, it is a local foods
boutique, and it is an idea that is
changing the way the Peninsula eats,
one small batch at a time.

Daly City man
found guilty of vehicular
manslaughter while on meth
A jury found a Daly City man guilty of
vehicular manslaughter while driving under
the influence of methamphetamine in a
Redwood City courtroom on Thursday.
Christopher Robert Dancel, 39, crashed
into a pedestrian walking in a marked cross-
walk at the intersection of Mission and
Goethe streets in Daly City on May 24,
2013, according to San Mateo County
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
Dancel was driving behind a van that
stopped to allow the victim to cross, but
Dancel pulled around the van and drove
through the intersection at 30 to 35 mph
without braking, Wagstaffe said.
The victim suffered major brain trauma and
died on June 15 after spending weeks in a
coma, Wagstaffe said.
Dancel remained at the scene after the
crash, and a police officer saw him trying to
a hide a baggie with meth in a planter box,
Wagstaffe said. Police also found small
amounts of meth in Dancel’s car.
The jury found Dancel guilty of vehicular
manslaughter under the influence of drugs,
felony drunk driving causing injury and
felony transportation and possession of
drugs for sale, Wagstaffe said.
This conviction is Dancel’s second strike
under California’s Three Strikes law; he was
previously convicted of felony drug sales.
Dancel returns to court on Oct. 16 for sen-
tencing; he faces up to 23 years in prison,
Wagstaffe said.

Known cougar killed on Interstate 280
The large male cougar that rattled nerves when it spent
much of a day behind a hedge in a Mountain View neighbor-
hood earlier this year was struck and killed by a car on a San
Francisco Bay Area interstate.
The mountain lion was hit Oct. 3 on Interstate 280 near
Redwood City. The car’s driver was not hurt.
Paul Houghtaling, field project manager for the Santa
Cruz Puma Project, identified the animal as the same big cat
that spent about nine hours on a busy street in Mountain
View in May.
After that incident the cougar was tranquilized and
released into nearby hills.
Houghtaling says the accident occurred within a mile of
the spot where a young female mountain lion was hit and
killed a few months ago.

None of the reactivated air tankers was
immediately dispatched to the fire along

California Department of Forestry and Fire

Still, officials said it was good to have

been extended by drought and unseason-

“Obviously, it’s critical for us to get
these (planes) back up in the air, ” Cal Fire

The state was fortunate that air tankers

were able to step in to fill the gap because
there currently are few fires elsewhere in

Cal Fire lifted the safety stand-down for

Woman robbed of
jewelry on Belmont street
A woman was robbed of jewelry she was wearing Friday
evening while walking home on the 500 block of Mountain
View Avenue in Belmont, according to police.
At approximately 5:40 p. m. , Belmont police responded
to what callers described as a possible domestic disturbance
in the Sterling Downs neighborhood that turned out to be a
strong-arm robbery, according to police.  
The victim, an East Indian woman in her 60s, was walk-
ing home on the south side of Mountain View Avenue. As
she approached the intersection of Mountain View Avenue
and Yorkshire Way, a newer black SUV, similar to a Lexus or
Acura, pulled around the corner onto Yorkshire Way and
stopped. A man got out of the SUV, approached the victim
and grabbed her arm. A struggle ensued, during which the
victim fell. The suspect grabbed a gold chain from the vic-
tim’s neck and fled in the SUV, southbound on Yorkshire
Way, toward Marine View Avenue, according to police.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic or light-skinned
black male in his 20s, approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall,
medium build and short, thick dark hair. He was wearing a
black sweatshirt and dark jeans. The woman was not injured
in the incident, according to police.
Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call
Belmont police at (650) 595-7400 or the Belmont Crime
Tip Line at (650) 598-3000.

Obama raising
money in state
for Democrats
By Darlene Superville
LOS ANGELES — Presi dent
Barack Obama is raising money
for Democrats in California and
what he says at some of those
events is anybody’s guess.
Two of t he four event s he’s
attending during three days in Los
Angeles and San Francisco are
closed-door. No media are allowed
The Cal i forni a event s cap a
week in which Obama flew from
coast to coast to help raise much-
needed campaign cash for fellow
Democrats in the run-up to the
Nov. 4 congressional and guber-
nat ori al el ect i ons. Democrat i c
control of the Senate is at stake,
and Obama has been urging sup-
porters to get out and vote to help
preserve the party’s majority.
Obama also raised money this
week i n New York Ci t y and
Greenwich, Connecticut.
It’s one place where the money
is. California is a liberal bastion,
maki ng i t a regul ar st op for
Democratic candidates who need
cash, that all-important lifeblood
of pol i t i cal campai gns. Some
areas, like the movie-star haven
of Los Angeles, are home to lots
of people with lots of money who
l i ke gi vi ng i t t o l i ke-mi nded
Democrat s (and some
Republ i cans). Many, such as
Gwyneth Paltrow, are glad to host
events that draw the president.
Int roduci ng Obama at her
Brent wood home on Thursday
night, she gushed that the presi-
dent is “so handsome that I can’t
speak properly. ” The New York
City borough of Manhattan has
been another one of Obama’s reg-
ular fundraising destinations.
We don’t know because
Democrat i c offi ci al s refuse t o
say. They also give such broad
ranges for t i cket pri ces t o
fundraisers that it makes precise
cal cul at i ons i mpossi bl e. For
example, tickets to the Paltrow
recept i on st art ed at $1, 000,
while the price of admission to
di nner was a mi ni mum of
$15, 000, part y offi ci al s sai d.
That suggests that some support-
ers coul d have pai d hi gher
amounts to get into either event.
They also don’t release the num-
ber of people who paid a particu-
lar price for tickets. Republicans
don’t, either.
Two of hi s four Cal i forni a
events are closed-door “roundta-
bl es, ” meani ng t he medi a are
barred from attending. He’s been
going to a lot of these lately, and
the only people who know what
was discussed are the president
and the people in the room with
him. He attended one such round-
t abl e on Fri day at t he Los
Angel es home of rest aurat eur
Michael Chow and his wife, Eva,
a fashion designer. About 25 sup-
porters who paid up to $32, 400
were expected to attend, accord-
ing to the Democratic Party.
A second “roundtable” is sched-
ul ed for Sat urday i n San

“If our people vote, if young
people vote, if women vote, if
people of color vote, if people
who care about the environment
vote, if people who care about
LGBT rights vote, that’s a major-

Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
By Jonathan Paye-Layleh

MONROVIA, Liberia — Liberian lawmak-
ers on Friday rejected a proposal to grant
President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf the power
to further restrict movement and public
gatherings and to confiscate property in the
fight against Ebola. One legislator said
such a law would have turned Liberia into a
police state.
The proposal’s defeat came as the World
Health Organization once again raised the
death toll attributed to the Ebola outbreak.
The Geneva-based U. N. agency said that
4, 033 confirmed, probable or suspected
Ebola deaths have now been recorded.
All but nine of them were in the three
worst-affected countries, Liberia, Sierra
Leone and Guinea. Eight of the rest were in
Nigeria, with one patient dying in the
United States.
On Friday, David Nabarro, the U. N. spe-
cial envoy for Ebola, said the number of
Ebola cases is probably doubling every
three-to-four weeks and the response needs
to be 20 times greater than it was at the
beginning of October.
He warned the U. N. General Assembly that
without the mass mobilization of the world
to support the affected countries in West
Africa, “it will be impossible to get this dis-
ease quickly under control, and the world
will have to live with the Ebola virus forev-
er. ”
Nabarro said the U. N. knows what needs
to be done to catch up to and overtake
Ebola’s rapid advance “and together we’re
going to do it. ”
“And our commitment to all of you is to
achieve it within a matter of months — a
few months, ” he said.
The defeat of Sirleaf’s proposal in the
House of Representatives came as U. S. mil-
itary forces worked on building a hospital
for stricken health workers in Liberia, the
country that has been hit hardest by the epi-
WHO: Ebola death toll
rises to more than 4,000
By Lefteris Pitarakis and John Heilprin
MURSITPINAR, Turkey — In a dramatic
appeal, a U. N. official warned that hundreds
of civilians who remain trapped in the
Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani near the
border with Turkey were likely to be “mas-
sacred” by advancing extremists and called
on Ankara to help prevent a catastrophe.
Staffan de Mistura, the U. N. Syria envoy,
raised the specter of some of the worst
genocides of the 20th century during a news
conference in Geneva to underscore con-
cerns as the Islamic State group pushed into
Kobani from the south and east.
“You remember Srebrenica? We do. We
never forgot. And probably we never for-
gave ourselves for that, ” he said, referring
to the 1995 slaughter of thousands of
Muslims by Bosnian Serb forces.
He spoke to reporters at a press confer-
ence in Geneva where he held up a map of
Kobani and said a U. N. analysis shows only
a small corridor remains open for people to
enter or flee the town.
His warning came as the Islamic State
group seized the so-called “Kurdish security
quarter” — an area where Kurdish militia-
men who are struggling to defend the town
maintain security buildings and where the
police station, the municipality and other
local government offices are located.
The onslaught by the Islamic State group
on Kobani, which began in mid-September,
has forced more than 200, 000 to flee across
the border into Turkey. Activists say the
fighting has already killed more than 500
De Mistura said there were 500 to 700
elderly people and other civilians still
t rapped t here whi l e 10, 000 t o 13, 000
remain stuck in an area nearby, close to the
“The city is in danger, ” said Farhad
Shami, a Kurdish activist in Kobani reached
by phone from Beirut. He reported heavy
fighting on the town’s southern and eastern
sides and said the Islamic State group was
bringing in more reinforcements.
U. S. -led airstrikes against the extremists
appear to have failed to blunt the militants’
push on Kobani. The Britain-based Syrian
Observatory for Human Rights said that
with the new advances, the Islamic State
group was now in control of 40 percent of
the town.
The U. S. Central Command said in a
statement that the U. S. -led coalition con-
ducted nine airstrikes in Syria on Thursday
and Friday. It said strikes near Kobani
destroyed two Islamic State training facili-
ties, as well as vehicles and tanks.
On Friday, the militants shelled Kobani’s
single border crossing with Turkey in an
effort to capture it and seal off the town, a
local Kurdish official and Syrian activists
The official, Idriss Nassan, said Islamic
State fighters aim to seize the crossing in
order to close the noose around the town’s
Kurdish defenders and prevent anyone from
entering or leaving Kobani.
Occasional gunfire and explosions that
appeared to be rocket-propelled grenades
and mortar shells could be heard from across
the border in Turkey, and plumes of smoke
were seen rising in the distance. The
Observatory said the militants shelled sev-
eral areas in Kobani, including the border
In Geneva, de Mistura invoked the geno-
cides in Srebrenica and Rwanda in 1994 as
he appealed to the world to prevent another
The civilians of Kobani “will be most
likely massacred, ” said the Italian-Swedish
diplomat, who was appointed to the U. N.
post in July. “When there is an imminent
threat to civilians, we cannot, we should
not be silent. ”

WASHINGTON — The government’s
authority to screen airline passengers for
potential Ebola exposure and order them
quarantined if necessary is far-reaching and
rooted in the Constitution and federal law,
public health experts say.
Temperature checks of passengers arriv-
ing from three West African countries expe-
riencing the Ebola outbreak, along with
other screening measures, will begin
Saturday at New York’s John F. Kennedy
International Airport and expand over the
next week to four other major American air-
The measures may seem intrusive but are
legally permissible because of the govern-
ment’s broad authority in matters of public
health and border control, experts say.
“It’s really not different in kind to securi-
ty screenings you have to go through at the
airport, ” said Michael Dorf, a Cornell
University constitutional law professor. “If
somebody doesn’t like being screened for
weapons and they sue, they’re going to
lose. ”
Ebola screening measures rest on federal law

Leaf blowers degrade
quality of life in Belmont
How can Belmont be a peaceful
place to live in when there are leaf
blowers creating loud noise and air
pollution? Think about a young fam-
ily walking on our streets and being
offended by the loud noise, dust and
fumes of a leaf blower. Scientists
have proven the great benefits of
outdoor activities such as walking,
especially for children, and yet leaf
blowers represent a major disincen-
tive to do so.  
In case you haven’t noticed, you
hear leaf blowers from as far as 500
to 800 feet away. Most people would
agree that it is the greatest source of
environmental noise in our neigh-
borhoods. Besides being a nuisance,
the noise level of leaf blowers con-
tributes to hearing loss in children
and grown-ups alike, and is a cause
of stress on the human system.
The two-stroke engines used for
gas-powered leaf blowers never burn
fuel as well as the four-stroke
engines used in cars, and there is
nothing like a catalytic converter.
Thus, such a leaf blower pollutes the
air by as much as a hundred cars. So,
it is akin to walking next to a busy
freeway with your family when you
pass a leaf-blowing gardener. Would
you do this as a responsible parent?
In addition, dust blown up by leaf
blowers enters the lungs of our resi-
dents, and the toxic materials such
as heavy metals will enter their bod-
ies and accumulate over time, con-
tributing to sickness and chronic
disease. It seems that banning the
use of gas-fired leaf blowers is a log-
ical step for Belmont to increase
quality of life.

Letter to the editor
By the Rev. Henry Hansen
s a pastor at a local church,
it has been stated to me with
great frequency: “I am horri-
fied at the genocide occurring in
northern Iraq and Syria under ISIS,
but feel helpless in offering any sort
of relief. Pastor — is there some-
thing Christians can do from over-
As a reply, I formed a response
team from our church three weeks ago
to address how Christians can bring
comfort and relief to the Christians
and minority groups who are being
brutally murdered by ISIS. The out-
come was threefold. We agreed to
participate in weekly prayer from
noon until half past the hour every
Wednesday. We created an opportuni-
ty for our church to give financially
through Samaritan’s Purse who offers
humanitarian aid to Iraqi refugees.
Lastly and most significantly, we are
hosting an Ecumenical Prayer
Service here on Wednesday, Oct. 15
at 7 p. m. to join with other
Christian leaders throughout the
community in offering prayer, as
well as to create a safe, quite space
for members of the community to
reflect on the sacredness of life and
how precious every human life is.
This crisis in Iraq has received
much attention in the media. It elic-
its a response of repulse. It causes
people to fear. It also incites grati-
tude, because it makes people in dem-
ocratic society think, “I am thankful
to live in a place that values freedom
of religion and is not ruled by evil
dictators nor terrorist groups. ”
These are all natural human respons-
es to the graphic images we have
seen of beheadings and the horrific
headlines that even innocent chil-
dren as young as 3
years old are sawed
in half or brutally
because they are a
minority group or
are Christians. And
yet the problem
with these
responses is that
they are often the end point instead
of the beginning. Instead of allow-
ing our initial response to be the
final one, it can lead to something
that can be emotionally and spiritu-
ally edifying to us and also to those
who grieve in Iraq and live in a per-
petual state of fear.
A passage in the book of Romans
states, “to rejoice with those who
rejoice, and mourn with those who
mourn. ” (12:15). In the same chap-
ter it also says, “rejoice in hope, be
patient in suffering, persevere in
prayer. ” This means that Christians
have an obligation to live in solidar-
ity with other Christians around the
globe. It would be a sin of omission
to ignore the plea of those who suf-
fer in the name of their creator God.
As the apostle Paul said elsewhere,
“If one part of the body suffers, all
the other parts suffer with it. ” (1
Corinthians 12:26). In other words,
the problem in Iraq is a Western
Christian problem. This is so not
because of the imminent threat of
terror on our own soil, but because
Christians are united under the larger
umbrella of the church universal.
ISIS is a serious threat because it
promotes hate over love; it kills
people for bearing the name of one
for whom sacrificial, selfless and
relentless love was his sole mission
in life. ISIS seeks to destroy what
God holds most dear: all of the chil-
dren he created to live in his image.
This is hugely problematic to
Christians; it not only warrants a
response, it demands one. Constant
prayer is a way of expressing a fer-
vent desire that the kingdom of love,
justice, mercy and grace reign over
hateful tyranny and quenchless ter-
ror. It beseeches God’s reign to pre-
vail especially over pure evil.
This prayer service is offered to all
who cannot help but draw upon a
higher power when they hear about
the horror of ISIS upon Christians
and minority groups. It is for those
who wish to reflect on how their own
peaceful activism and the practice of
loving our enemies can make for a
more peaceful world. It is for those
who are tired of living in a world of
perpetual fear and long for inspira-
tion. It can also be for those for who
the name of Jesus Christ means
everything. All are welcome to join
the First Presbyterian Church 7 p. m.
Wednesday in the sanctuary as they
lift up prayers to the backdrop of
Taize’/Iona and traditional music, and
to inspirational words of love, hope,
mercy and justice.
The Rev. Henry Hansen is the pastor
for Mission and Outreach at the First
Presbyterian Church of Burlingame.
He received his master’s of divinity
from Princeton Theological Seminary
in 2003 and is about to complete his
doctor of ministry at Fuller
Theological Seminary in Pasadena.
A prayerful response to the Iraq and Syria crisis
Does prison realignment
make anyone feel safer?
By Jonathan Madison
rison reform and realignment are traditionally per-
ceived as one of the most unpopular topics of our
time, but have quickly shifted to a front and center
debate here in California. Assembly Bill 109, Gov. Jerry
Brown’s prison realignment program, has been the source of
heated debate and criticism late in this election cycle.
News headlines this week show an increase in parole viola-
tions and various crimes three years after the enactment of
AB 109. Under this realignment program,
about 3,000 dangerous criminals who
would otherwise be incarcerated in state
prisons are being released back into com-
munities earlier due to shortened incarcer-
ation terms. Due to the increase in crime
since the program’s inception, probation
and law enforcement agencies have been
burdened with tracking additional violent
criminals in California. As such,
Californians have every right to be con-
cerned about the early release of state prisoners into their
According to CBS News, when asked about the net effect of
AB 109, Dr. Cindy Burke, director of criminal justice
research at the San Diego Association of Governments,
highlighted the fact that “AB 109 keeps non-violent offend-
ers out of prison, and has led to overcrowding in county
jails. Our local jails before AB 109 were under capacity. Now
... we’re at 100 percent capacity,” said Burke. The principal
goal of the realignment program was to stop and potentially
reverse the overcrowding trend in prisons throughout the
state. In many capacities, the program appears to be produc-
ing a counterintuitive effect.
According to a Los Angeles Times article, “California’s 33
prisons are overpopulated by about 9,600 felons,” and courts
have ordered the number of inmates to be reduced to 137.5
percent of design capacity. The prospect of such a high num-
ber of criminals being released into residential communities
in a “single wave” is quite alarming.
Anumber of candidates have issued statements on specific
examples of how AB 109 produces unintended consequences
on residents across California. District 10 state Senate candi-
date Peter Kuo has said, “The Stockton bank robbery that
occurred on July 23, 2014, is yet another reminder that poli-
cies like AB 109 sound great on paper, but when practically
applied, fail to protect families and communities. The murder
of innocent citizens like Misty Holt-Singh in Stockton
reminds us that on any given day, most laws passed by
Sacramento to ‘restrict’ criminals ultimately do nothing to
stop those who would otherwise be criminals who are intent
on doing harm.” By contrast, Gov. Brown has recently
declared that “the prison emergency is over in California” as
a result of the programs’ success.
When asked about the net results of AB 109, San Mateo
County native Corrin Rankin, former Redwood City Council
candidate and San Mateo County co-chair of Neel Kashkari’s
campaign for California governor, said, “AB 109 has done
more to increase crime in our communities statewide than it
has to address an overcrowded prison population. This is a
poor excuse for a cure to the state’s prison population.”
Rankin is a bail bondsman in Redwood City and has seen
firsthand the ramifications of the realignment program.
The reality is that for years, the state of California has
addressed its unsustainable prison population by simply
constructing more prisons. After years of employing this
failed logic, state lawmakers were forced to react with haste
to address the problem with the enactment of AB 109 in
2011. Although the bill attempts to address the problem of
overcrowded prisons, the bill appears to do little more than
release hardened criminals back into California communi-
ties, posing an imminent danger for many law-abiding citi-
The belief that building more prisons is a cure for crime is
analogous to the belief that building more funeral homes is a
cure for cancer. One cannot attack crime simply by creating a
bigger place for it, or by simply shifting criminals from
state prisons to county jails. If state lawmakers want to
address an unsustainable prison population, they should
address it by reevaluating and improving the sentencing laws
currently in place.
There are other alternatives that could effectively address
our country’s unsustainable prison population that would be
more safe and cost-efficient, such as early crime-prevention
efforts and enhanced and reformed prison re-entry programs.
History shows us that the solution to an unsustainable
prison population has been to either construct more prisons
or shift prisoners from state prisons to county jails. This
forces counties to release a number of dangerous criminals
back into society without a job or family, but expect those
same prisoners to quickly adapt to society. It’s time to
address prison reform with meaningful solutions, not simply
kicking a can down a road that has already ended.

Big movers
By Alex Veiga
Investors avoided another roller
coaster day on Wall Street Friday.
What they got instead was a steady,
moderate decline that left the market
with its worst weekly performance
since May 2012.
Technology shares were especially
hard-hit. Semiconductor makers
slumped after Microchip Technology
cut its sales forecast for the quarter and
warned investors to expect bad news
from others in the sector.
That sent shares lower for Avago
Technologies, Intel and Texas
Instruments, among others.
Microchip Technology declined the
most, shedding $5. 59, or 12. 3 per-
cent, to $39. 96.
The decline capped a week of turbu-
lence in the market brought on by
renewed fears that economic growth in
Europe could be slowing.
The Dow Jones industrial average
recorded its biggest gain of the year on
Wednesday. The next day, it plunged
334 points, its steepest decline this
“A lot of investors are trying to
come to grips with the pickup in
volatility we’ve suddenly seen during
this week, ” said David Kelly, chief
global strategist for JPMorgan Funds.
The major stock indexes were down
in premarket trading Friday.
The slide in semiconductor stocks
dragged down the tech-heavy Nasdaq
composite index, keeping it in the red
all day.
The other indexes flirted with small
gains throughout the day, but the
course didn’t hold. They ended lower
for the fourth time in five days.
All told, the Dow Jones industrial
average lost 115. 15, or 0. 7 percent, to
16, 544. 10. The Standard & Poor’s 500
index shed 22. 08, or 1. 2 percent, to
1, 906. 13.
The Nasdaq slid 102. 10 points, or
2. 3 percent, to 4, 276. 24.
All three indexes ended lower for the
week. For the S&P 500, this was the
worst weekly decline since May 18,
2012, when it fell 4. 3 percent.
Negative economic news and a slide
in oil prices contributed to the uneasi-
ness on Wall Street this week, market
watchers said.
Germany, which has been the eco-
nomic powerhouse for Europe, report-
ed on Thursday its biggest monthly
drop in exports in five years. In addi-
tion, the International Monetary Fund
downgraded its outlook for global eco-
nomic growth.
Meanwhile, some traders are inter-
preting the decline in oil prices as fur-
ther indication that growth is slowing.
“You put those three factors togeth-
er and it has investors nervous at the
health of the world economy, ” said
Jeff Kravetz, regional investment
director at U. S. Bank Wealth
The volatility in the market this
week also came at a time of relatively
light corporate news in the U. S. That
changes next week, when a slew of
major companies begin to report their
latest quarterly results.
“Third-quarter earnings season
should be pretty reassuring, and I
wouldn’t be surprised to see money go
back into various stocks as companies
surprise to the upside, which is what I
expect them to do, ” said Kelly.
Investors did not appear to be overly
optimistic on Friday.
Eight of the 10 sectors in the S&P
500 fell, led by technology stocks.
Utilities and consumer staples bucked
the trend.
Shares in electric car maker Tesla
slumped after investors looked over
the company’s late-Thursday
announcement of a new all-wheel drive
car. The stock lost $20. 10, or 7. 8 per-
cent, to $236. 91.
Despite the overall slide, some
stocks posted strong gains.
L-3 Communications Holdings led
the risers in the S&P 500, adding
$7. 04, or 6. 5 percent, to $115. 15.
Stocks close out worst week since May 2012

WASHINGTON — Federal health
officials have approved a daily pill
that can cure the most common form of
hepatitis C without the grueling pill-
and-injection cocktail long used to
treat the virus.
But the drug’s $1, 125-per-pill price
is sure to increase criticism of drug-
maker Gilead Sciences, whose pricing
strategy for an older hepatitis drug has
already drawn scorn from patient
groups, insurers and politicians world-
The Food and Drug Administration
said Friday it cleared Gilead’s Harvoni
combination pill for patients with
genotype 1 of hepatitis C, a form of
the liver-destroying virus that
accounts for 70 percent of the estimat-
ed 3. 2 million cases in the U. S. For the
first time ever, those patients will not
have to take a decades-old combina-
tion of antiviral pills and shots that
causes flu-like side effects.
The new pill combines Gilead’s
blockbuster Sovaldi, approved last
December, with a new antiviral drug
called ledipasvir, which attacks the
virus using a different mechanism. The
dual-acting approach mimics drug
combinations Gilead has long used to
treat HIV.
It’s another breakthrough for Foster
City-based Gilead, which analysts
expect to bring in billions of dollars
in new sales. The company says the
new drug will cost $94, 500 for a 12-
week supply. About 40 percent of
patients may be able to take the drug
for eight weeks, reducing the price to
about $63, 000.
But patient advocates on Friday
renewed their criticism of Gilead and
the pharmaceutical industry trend
toward sky-high drug pricing.
“When history is written, this is
going to be the breaking point where
drug prices went completely out of
control and nobody did anything about
it, ” said Michael Weinstein, president
of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
“Never before has a drug been priced at
this level for such a large population. ”
About 25 percent of people with HIV
infection are also infected with hepati-
tis C.
Other groups noted that the eight-
week regimen could make the medicine
more palatable to insurers, improving
access. The shorter treatment option is
recommended for patients who have
not been treated for the disease before
and don’t have advanced liver damage.
Gilead executives say Harvoni’s
price is actually slightly lower than
the current standard treatment: Sovaldi
plus a cocktail of two other drugs,
which the company estimates comes
to $95, 000 for 12 weeks, on average.
Despite such explanations, the new
drug’s approval is sure to renew scruti-
ny of prices for life-saving drugs.
Members of the Senate have already
asked Gilead to hand over documents
detailing its decision to price Sovaldi
at $84, 000 for one 12-week regimen.
The health insurance industry has
been blasting Gilead for months over
Sovaldi’s price, and most insurers
require prior authorization before they
will pay for it. The industry’s leading
trade group said Harvoni would contin-
ue to drive up health care costs.
“Gilead had an opportunity to
demonstrate that it wants to be part of
the affordability solution, but the
company still seems to believe it has a
blank check, ” said America’s Health
Insurance Plans, in a statement.
Gilead executives say their drugs are
cost effective, despite their large
upfront cost, because they cure more
patients in less time than older drugs,
and prevent the catastrophic problems
for patients like liver failure.
New pill for hepatitis C wins FDA OK

WASHINGTON — Finance ministers
from the world’s largest economies
said Friday they are determined to pre-
vent a slide into another global reces-
sion, but a top U. S. official expressed
frustration that a number of major
economies were not doing enough to
bolster growth.
After two days of discussions,
finance officials from the Group of 20
nations unveiled plans for a global ini-
tiative to build roads and other infra-
structure projects to help boost world
growth by $2 trillion over the next
five years and create millions of jobs.
But officials conceded that this
longer-run effort will not help with the
pressing problems of weak growth in
Europe and a number of other parts of
the world. And U. S. Treasury Secretary
Jacob Lew complained that govern-
ments in Europe, Japan and China were
failing to deliver needed support.
“European leaders should focus on
recalibrating policies to address per-
sistent demand weaknesses, ” Lew said
in comments prepared for a session of
the policy-setting committee of the
International Monetary Fund.
Weak reports on industrial produc-
tion and trade out of Germany,
Europe’s largest economy, jolted
financial markets and raised worries
that Europe could be headed for anoth-
er recession. U. S. stocks endured their
worst week since May 2012 with the
losses continuing on Friday when the
Dow Jones industrial average slid 115
It was against this backdrop that G-
20 finance ministers and central bank
presidents met for two days of talks
that wrapped up Friday in advance of
the annual meetings of the 188-nation
IMF and its sister lending institution,
the World Bank.
Lew did not mention Germany by
name, but it was clear that his remarks
on Europe focused on that nation’s
reluctance to do more to stimulate
growth. He said that “countries with
external surpluses and fiscal flexibili-
ty” needed to bolster their efforts to
promote stronger growth. Germany,
Europe’s largest economy, ran a large
trade surplus last year.
Finance officials grapple with weak growth
Over 1,000 Europeans
a day ask Google to scrub Web
SAN FRANCISCO — Google is being swamped with
demands from Europeans trying to erase humiliating
links to their past from the world’s dominant Internet
search engine.
Nearly 145, 000 requests have been made in the
European Union and four other countries by people
looking to polish their online reputations, according to
numbers the company released Friday. That’s an average
of more than 1, 000 requests a day since late May, when
Google began accepting submissions in order to com-
ply with a European court that ruled some embarrassing
information about people’s lives can be scrubbed from
search results.
Europe’s insistence that its citizens have the “right to
be forgotten” in certain instances has thrust Google
into an uncomfortable position that it sought to avoid.
The company has been trying to define what kind of
material merits deletion while also striving to stand by
its belief that all of the world’s information should be
universally accessible.
Requests can be made by more than 500 million peo-
ple living in the European Union’s 28 countries, as well
as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
The removal requests covered more than 497, 000 Web
links. Google says it has jettisoned 42 percent, or more
than 200, 000, of the troublesome links.

BALTIMORE — Alex Gordon had already
compiled a career’s worth of playoff memo-
ries when he stepped to the plate in the 10th
inning of a tie game.
Given the Kansas City Royals’ success
rate in extra innings this postseason, what
happened next was almost inevitable.
Gordon homered to put Kansas City in
front, Mike Moustakas added a two-run shot
and the Royals defeated the Baltimore
Orioles 8-6 Friday night in the opener of the
AL Championship Series.
Kansas City is 5-0 this postseason, win-
ning four times in extra innings.
“These games, we’ve played so many of
them that we’re kind of used to them a little
bit, ” manager Ned Yost said. “And we still
have a lot of confidence. ”
Before hitting his first playoff homer,
Gordon doubled in three runs, was picked off
first base, made a great catch in left field and
got hit in the neck with a pitch.
“Gordy just has a lot of confidence in his
abilities, ” Yost said. “He’s a guy that can hit
by a pitch and do exactly what he did, drive
it out of the ballpark tonight, after getting
hit in the neck. So it was a huge hit for us at
that point. ”
As the ball soared over the wall, Orioles
reliever Darren O’Day flung his cap to the
ground in frustration.

Game 1 of
ALCS over O’s
By Terry Bernal
Griffin Intrieri started running from the
moment he took opening kickoff and sim-
ply never stopped.
Burlingame was looking to make a state-
ment in Friday's Peninsula Athletic League
Bay Division opener at Menlo-Atherton.
Not only did it mark the Panthers' return to
the Bay after playing last season in the
Ocean Division, M-A has also been some-
thing of a nemesis of Burlingame for the
better part of a decade, as the Panthers had
not won a matchup between the two teams
since 2005.
Intrieri was up to the challenge, leading
Burlingame (1-0 PAL Bay, 5-0 overall) to a
35-14 victory on the first chilly night in
Atherton in months. The senior got cook-
ing in a hurry though and went on to have a
career night.
“That kid is amazing, ” Burlingame senior
guard Tommy Dryden said. “He' s light-

Padres prevail over S.I.
By Nathan Mollat
Serra football coach Patrick Walsh was sure
once transfer quarterback Hunter Bishop became
eligible, the Padres would be a better team.
For the second time this season, Walsh start-
ed a quarterback with zero varsity starts under
his belt. Sophomore Leki Nunn spent the first
four games as a place holder under center until
Bishop could go. Friday night, Nunn took his
rightful place behind Bishop, lining up as a run-
ning back and the moves paid off.
Nunn rushed for a game-high 205 yards on 16
carries and scored on runs of 63, 9 and 75 yards
as the Padres topped visiting St. Ignatius 32-20
on Serra’s homecoming game.
“It felt nice (to be back at a familiar position).
Ever since I was young, I’ve been a runner,”
Nunn said. “Putting me at quarterback, it put me
out of my comfort zone. This just feels natural.”
Bishop, meanwhile, struggled at times, but
for the most part, kept his composure and com-
manded the Serra offense fairly well. He rushed
nine times for 23 yards while completing 6 of
15 passes for 42 yards.
“He was jittery. Tons of expectations,” Walsh
said of Bishop’s performance. “I could tell he
was nervous. [His performance] was what I

ers in new positions, the defense was as stout as

ST. LOUIS — Two years later, the
sting is still fresh for Mike Matheny.
His St. Louis Cardinals were seem-
ingly on the verge of a second straight
trip to the World Series under manager
Tony La Russa’s first-year successor,
and instead the San Francisco Giants
ended up using them as a springboard
to the championship.
Barry Zito got it started, defying his
recent track record, and Marco Scutaro
batted . 500 and became MVP of the NL
Championship Series. Next thing the
Cardinals knew, they were back home
cleaning out lockers while the Giants
finished the postseason on a seven-
game winning streak, sweeping the
Tigers in the World Series.
“Obviously, the Zito game sticks out
in everybody’s mind, ” Matheny said.
“He threw an exceptional game and it
seemed like things turned around at
that point. ”
The Giants outscored the Cardinals
20-1 the last three games, and carried
that momentum into a championship.
Minus those two surprise stars, they’re
back for more: Giants-Cards once
again in the NLCS.
“There are a lot of players from 2012
on both sides, and I think you learn
from that, ” Giants manager Bruce
Bochy said. “It’s a different year,
though. ”
The Cardinals have the home-field
advantage again in the best-of-seven
matchup that begins Saturday night
with aces Adam Wainwright and
Madison Bumgarner squaring off in a
series matching teams accustomed to
playing late into October.
St. Louis is sticking with the same
rotation as in the division series. After
Wainwright, it’ll be Lance Lynn, John
Lackey and Shelby Miller starting
Game 2, 3 and 4.
Bochy said Jake Peavy will start
Game 2, but declined to go further,
leaving Tim Hudson and Ryan
Vogelsong in limbo a bit.
“Right now we’re going to leave it at
these two, ” Bochy said. “But you can
pretty much speculate what it’s going
to be. ”
Tim Lincecum remains a “swing
guy” for the Giants, the same role the
Cardinals have for Michael Wacha.
Neither pitched in the first round.
“These are heightened times and it’s
a big stage, ” Lincecum said. “I’ll just
be ready for whatever opportunity I
get. ”
St. Louis is in the NLCS for the
fourth straight year and is seeking its
third World Series trip in that span,
having won it all in 2011. The Giants
are in the NLCS for the third time in
five seasons, and took the Series in
2010 and ‘12.
“It’s almost more relaxing than the
regular season, ” catcher Buster Posey
said. “This is the fun time. I think both
teams are lucky, too, because we play
in front of big crowds all season.
“We are fortunate to have fans who
pack it out. ”
Matheny was a four-time Gold Glove
catcher with the Cardinals and finished
his career with the Giants. San
Francisco’s payroll is $45-50 million
higher than St. Louis, but otherwise he
sees similarities in focus, stability and
“You have to have talent, you have
to have a lot of breaks, ” Matheny said.
“I do believe when you see successful
companies, whether it’s in baseball or
in corporate America, you tend to see
those same qualities. ”
The Cardinals defied the odds and
won as a wild card in 2011 and the
Giants are trying to do it now.
Bumgarner followed up an 18-win
season by shutting out Pittsburgh in
the wild card game, and he’s 1-1 with a
1. 13 ERA in two starts this postsea-
son. Plus, he’s as dangerous as ninth-
place hitters go, batting . 258 with
four homers and 15 RBIs.
Wainwright rattled off the stats dur-
ing his time at the podium.
“I don’t feel like I deserve that much
credit, ” Bumgarner said. “But it’s nice
to know you can help your team out a
little bit. ”
Bumgarner will be facing a lineup
that feasted on lefties in the division
series, beating Dodgers ace Clayton
Kershaw twice. The Cardinals totaled
five homers off lefties after totaling
eight during the season.
“It’s not the typical left-on-left
matchups, they’ll stay in there, ”
Bumgarner said. “They seem pretty
comfortable. ”
Both Wainwright and Kershaw fal-
tered badly in the division series open-
er, an anticipated duel devolving into a
10-9 St. Louis win. Wainwright, a 20-
game winner for the second time, con-
ceded Friday he’d aggravated an injury
on the back of his elbow that’s both-
ered him off and on.
Wainwright took pains to reassure
what he referred to as an “elbow-fear-
ing world. ”
“Now I’m on the mend, ” Wainwright
said. “I’m very confident about it
because I felt that before, the exact
same thing. I was able to recover very
well from it. I have no doubts going
into tomorrow. ”
Giants, Cardinals: Here we go again
“It’s almost more relaxing than the regular season.
This is the fun time. I think both teams are lucky, too,
because we play in front of big crowds all season.
We are fortunate to have fans who pack it out.”

San Jose PD suspends
officers’ off-duty work with 49ers
SAN JOSE — The San Jose Police Department has
informed its officers they are no longer allowed to do off-
duty work for the San Francisco 49ers.
The order Friday came hours after the San Jose Mercury
News reported a sergeant with the San Jose Police
Department allegedly was at Ray McDonald’s house the
day he was arrested for domestic violence.
The officer is one of 16 from the department who moon-
light with the 49ers as part of the team's security.
San Jose Police Chief Larry Esquivel says in a message
to personnel that it is in the department’s “best interest
to suspend all San Francisco 49er secondary employment
related assignments until further notice. ”
Esquivel says the decision was made “due to the com-
plexities of the investigation. ”
McDonald is out on $25, 000 bail following his Aug.
31 arrest.
A’s Stephen Vogt, Brandon Moss set for surgeries
OAKLAND — Oakland Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt
is scheduled for surgery on his troublesome right foot
Tuesday, while outfielder Brandon Moss is set for surgery
on his right hip later this month.
Vogt said Friday he would have a procedure to repair a
ruptured plantar plate, which kept him from catching
down the stretch for the A’s. The surgery will be performed
by orthopedist Dr. Kenneth Jung in Los Angeles, Vogt
Oakland’s season ended in a 9-8, 12-inning loss in the
one-game wild card playoff to the Royals in Kansas City
on Sept. 30. Vogt, unable to put constant pressure on the
bottom of his painful foot, still contributed at first base
and in right field. Vogt, 29, began the season with Triple-
A Sacramento before playing his first game with Oakland
on June 1 and remaining in the majors the rest of the way.
He batted . 279 with nine home runs and 35 RBIs in a
career-best 84 games. Vogt didn’t catch again after July 7.
A’s assistant general manager David Forst said Friday
the expectation is still to have Vogt fully healthy by
spring training in February.
Moss’ operation will be Oct. 21 in Nashville, per-
formed by Dr. Thomas Byrd.
The 31-year-old Moss played a career-high 147 games
this season, batting . 234 with 25 home runs and 81
RBIs. He played 67 games at first base and 56 of his 84
games in the outfield in left field. He was bothered by the
hip at times through the season struggled late in the year.
He also received a cortisone shot.
L.A. committee backs bid
for more time to lure NFL
LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles committee is backing
AEG’s request for more time to lure a professional foot-
ball team to Los Angeles.
The City Council’s Economic Development Committee

ment with the developer to find an NFL team to play at a
downtown stadium.
If the full council approves next week, AEG will have
until April to find a team.

ST. LOUIS — Two straight wins might
have quieted down talk about Jim Harbaugh’s
future with the San Francisco 49ers. At least
a little.
Another win on Monday night against a
team prone lately to self-destruction would
further distance the franchise from a shaky 1-
2 start and bring the Niners closer to rejoin-
ing the NFL’s elite.
Not, mind you, that their prickly coach
seems bothered by rumors about job security.
“No, that just seems like warmed-up oat-
meal to me,” Harbaugh said on a conference
call with St. Louis reporters.
The St. Louis Rams (1-3) still believe Year
3 under Jeff Fisher can be their breakthrough.
But only if they stop beating themselves.
“I think we’re better than that,” quarter-
back Austin Davis. “We need to show it.”
Prime time seems to agree with the 49ers
(3-2), who have won six in a row on Monday
night. They’ll lean most on a defense ranked
second in the NFL with no apparent weak-
nesses, one that has succeeded by going
back to basics.
“I think the last couple years it’s kind of
been the M.O. with us,” defensive end Justin
Smith said. “We’ve come out, gone 1-2 and
then we kind of just settle back to fundamen-
tal football.
“Basic, old school football.”
The Rams rank among the league leaders in
penalties, many of them pre-snap infrac-
tions and many others reflecting a lack of
discipline. They allowed three easy touch-
downs last week at Philadelphia, including a
blocked punt 27 seconds into the game, and
a late flurry from 27 points down fell short.
One of the more persistent offenders on
special teams, Ray Ray Armstrong, was
released the day after the loss.
“This is not a scapegoat. You guys know
me,” Fisher told reporters. “But we needed to
make a change and go a different direction.”
Here are some things to watch for in 49ers-
San Francisco treat
This weekend, the 49ers and Giants will be
staying at the same hotel.
The Giants are seeking their third World
Series title in five seasons and open their
best-of-seven NL Championship Series
against the Cardinals on Saturday night.
Harbaugh took part in the 2012 World Series
parade, but doesn’t know Giants manager
Bruce Bochy well and wasn’t planning on
attending any of the games.
“I haven’t had that many conversations
with Bruce,” Harbaugh said, “but I’m a big
fan. I would love to run into him, yes.”
One sack, so what?
San Francisco’s offensive line doesn’t
have much interest in discussing the fact St.
Louis has managed just one sack so far —
perhaps a sign of a lacking pass rush.
Not so, says Niners right guard Alex
Boone. Not the way Fisher likes to mix
things up and keep opponents guessing on
both sides of the ball.
“I think it’s deceptive. That’s what they’re
known for, their front four, ” Boone said.
“They can hurt you and it can be a long
game. We have to shut them down early. ”
The Rams had anticipated more sacks
under new coordinator Gregg Williams and
are getting pressure if nothing else.
“It’s about time we got that breakout
game, ” Rams defensive tackle Michael
Brockers said.
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick counts on
some new looks with Fisher running the
“They always have something up their
sleeve, ” he said. “They’re going to have dif-
ferent looks, different blitzes. Always some-
thing new you’re going to have to be ready
for. ”
Davis’ progress
Quarterback is not the problem for the
Rams. Austin Davis, the fourth-stringer in
August behind even rookie Garrett Gilbert, is
coming off consecutive 300-yard passing
games and almost brought the team back to a
win last week.
“It’s for us to determine whether he’s a
starting quarterback in this league or not,”
49ers linebacker Patrick Willis said. “All we
know is he’s starting for them, that makes
him a starting quarterback.”
It’ll be tough for the Rams to build on that
“It’s probably our biggest challenge
across the board,” Davis said.
Penalty phase
Rams players are well aware they’ve got to
cut down on mistakes. They don’t need
Fisher to take punitive measures like extra
wind sprints.
“Week in and week out, we constantly
shoot ourselves in the foot,” defensive end
Robert Quinn said. “We have to eliminate
those if we want to start putting Ws on the
“Some things you really can’t control, but
we have to be a little more focused.”

ever. After a sloppy start that saw St. Ignatius scored on their first
two drives due in part to a number of Serra penalties, the Padres
tightened things up and held the Wildcats to just 123 yards of
offense — 132 yards pass and minus-9 yards rushing.
“The rush defense was unbelievable,” Walsh said.
Defensive lineman Creighton Felise had a monster game, record-
ing four of the Padres’ five sacks on the night. The defense also
picked off S.I. quarterback Ryan Hagfeldt twice, while special
teams returned a S.I. fumble for a touchdown on the game’s open-
ing kickoff.
Serra (2-0 WCAL, 3-2 overall) got off to quick start when
Dominic Scarpino scooped up a fumble on the opening kickoff and
went 27 yards for a 6-0 Serra lead 10 seconds into the game.
It was short-lived lead, however, as St. Ignatius (0-2, 3-2) took
the ensuing kickoff and marched 64 yards on eight plays, taking
more than five minutes off the clock when Hagfeldt hooked up with
Dylan Elder with a 22-yard touchdown pass. The extra point gave
the Wildcats a 7-6 lead.
After forcing Serra to turn the ball over on downs near midfield,
S.I. went back to work, driving to the Padres’ 19-yard line before
the drive stalled and the Wildcats settled for a 36-yard Andrew
Ferrero field goal for a 10-6 S.I. lead.
It would be the last lead of the game for the Wildcats. After the
teams exchanged punts, the Padres took the lead for good with less
than four minutes gone in the second quarter. Starting from their
own 4, the Padres moved the ball out to their 37 before Nunn took
a handoff, swept around the left side and went 63 yards for score and
a 12-10 Serra lead.
Later in the quarter, Serra’s defense thwarted a S.I. drive when
Justin Tatola made a one-handed interception and returned it to the
Wildcats’ 11. Two plays later, Nunn used a nifty spin move in traf-
fic and went in from nine yards out to put Serra up 19-10 with 2:55
to play in the half.
S.I., however, got right back in the game on Serra’ first posses-
sion of the second half when Chad Johnstone stepped in front of a
Bishop pass along the right sideline and streaked 27 yards for the
pick-6 and just like that, the Wildcats were down two, 19-17.
St. Ignatius had a chance to take the lead on its next possession,
but Ferrero’s 41-yard field goal attempt was wide left.
Serra took advantage of the miss and put together its best drive
of the game. Starting from their own 20, the Padres marched 80
yards — twice converting on fourth down to keep the drive alive.
Kelepi Lataimua capped the drive with a 22-yard scoring run to put
Serra up 26-17 midway through the third quarter.
The Wildcats caught a huge break when, after being forced to punt
on their next possession, pounced on a loose ball at the Padres’ 20
when the Serra punt returner failed to hold on to the ball after sig-
naling fair catch.
The Padres defense bailed them out, however, by limiting the
Wildcats to a 27-yard Ferrero field goal, which closed the gap to 26-
20 with 5:52 to play.
Nunn then sealed the win on the Padres next drive. Facing sec-
ond-and-5 at his own 25, Nunn took a handoff, when up the gut and
ran away from the Wildcats defense for a 75-yard score and a 32-20
Serra lead.
“My O-line did amazing,” Nunn said. “We came out and played
Tatola’s second interception of the night with just over three
minutes to play allowed the Padres to run out the clock.
“Any WCALwin is a big one,” Walsh said. “The game was never
secured until late.”

hander said. “You go up there and roll the dice. Sometimes you
win, sometimes you lose.”
It was Baltimore’s first playoff loss following a three-game
sweep of Detroit in the Division Series.
“One game does not the series make,” Orioles catcher Nick
Hundley said.
After Gordon connected in the 10th, Moustakas followed with
another shot to right, this one off Brian Matusz with a runner
This best-of-seven series was billed as Kansas City’s speed
against Baltimore’s power, but the Royals didn’t steal a base and
hit all of the game’s three home runs.
“We know we’re capable of hitting home runs,” Gordon said.
“We didn’t do it during the regular season. But it doesn’t really
matter. This is the postseason and we’re starting to swing the
bats better now. It’s good to see.”
The Orioles tried to rally in the 10th. Pinch-hitter Delmon
Young hit an RBI single with two outs, but closer Greg Holland
retired Nick Markakis on a grounder with two runners on for the
final out in the rain shortly before 1 a.m.
Game 2 is Saturday afternoon. Rookie right-hander Yordano
Ventura makes his second postseason start for the Royals
against Bud Norris.
Wade Davis got the win with two shutout innings and Holland
got a save.
The fastest team in the majors nearly walked to victory in the
ninth. After Orioles closer Zach Britton issued three straight
walks to open the inning, Eric Hosmer into a force at the plate
— helped by Hundley’s nifty pickup at the plate — and O’Day
got Billy Butler to hit into a double play.
O’Day wasn’t nearly as effective in the 10th.
Down 5-1 in the fifth against James Shields, the Orioles
scored three times as 47,124 towel-waving fans cheered them
on. Nelson Cruz hit an RBI double before Ryan Flaherty deliv-
ered a two-out, two-run single.
Shields made it out of the inning, but did not return after giv-
ing up four runs and 10 hits.
The rain that was expected for much of the day finally made an
appearance in the sixth, shortly before Baltimore pulled even
against the usually reliable Kansas City bullpen. The tying run
scored off Kelvin Herrera on a low popup by Alejandro De Aza
that dropped behind the mound.
Early on, Kansas City dominated.
After the Orioles left the bases loaded in the second inning,
Alcides Escobar drove a 2-0 pitch from Chris Tillman into the
left-field seats. It was his 22nd homer in 2,994 career at-bats,
including this postseason.
Kansas City then sandwiched two singles around a four-pitch
walk to load the bases with two outs for Gordon, who lofted a
broken-bat fly that landed about four feet inside the right-field
foul line for a 4-0 lead.
Gordon also hit a three-run double in the finale of Kansas
City’s three-game sweep of the Angels in the Division Series.
Baltimore got an RBI single from Adam Jones in the bottom
half, but a diving catch by Gordon prevented further damage.
Asacrifice fly by Butler in the fifth made it 5-1.

BERKELEY— Even though Washington is
averaging more than 200 yards on the ground,
California linebacker Michael Barton fully
expects the Huskies to come out throwing the
That likely means another shootout Saturday
when Washington visits the upstart Golden
Bears, who are off to their best start since
After an encouraging beginning in wins over
Northwestern and Sacramento State, Cal’s
defense has shown an increasing vulnerability
against the pass over the past month. In the
past three games alone, opponents have
scorched the Bears for 1,709 yards through the
Barton, Cal’s leading tackler, doesn’t see
why Washington won’t try to do the same
“If I’m Washington and I’m looking at our
film, they’re going to want to throw the ball,”
Barton said. “That’s where the money’s been
coming for other offenses.”
The Bears (4-1, 2-1 Pac-12) own one of the
most prolific offenses in the country. They’re
second nationally in scoring (50.0 points per
game). Sophomore quarterback Jared Goff has
thrown 22 touchdown passes with three inter-
ceptions while leading Cal back to respectabil-
ity following a 1-11 campaign in 2013.
Goff passed for a school-record 527 yards and
five touchdowns in last week’s 60-59 win over
Washington State but was upstaged by Cougars
quarterback Connor Halliday. Halliday set an
NCAApassing record with 734 yards and six
touchdowns, breaking the previous mark of
716 yards set by David Klingler of Houston in
By comparison, Washington quarterback
Cyler Miles has thrown for just 623 yards and
six touchdowns in four games since taking over
the starting job.
The Huskies (4-1, 0-1) have relied more heav-
ily on the backfield tandem of Lavon Coleman
and Dwayne Washington. The duo has com-
bined for 538 yards rushing while pacing first-
year coach Chris Petersen’s methodical
Still, Cal coach Sonny Dykes wouldn’t be
surprised to see Washington go to the air more
frequently against the Bears.
“They’re not historically a team that plays
fast ... but it wouldn’t surprise me,” Dykes said.
“I’m sure they’ve got that in their arsenal.”
Here are some things to watch when Cal
hosts Washington:
Shaq shifting around
Washington linebacker Shaq Thompson is
one of the top all-around players in the Pac-12.
He’s already scored three defensive touchdowns
this season and added a fourth when he scored
on a 57-yard run against Eastern Washington.
Now it appears that Thompson will add playing
safety to his resume. “We’re going to move him
around to get our best combination on there,”
Petersen said. “It could be down and distance,
could be team-oriented. Could be all of those
California dreamin’
The Bears have scored 45 points or more in
four consecutive games and are attempting to
become the second team in school history to
top the 50-point plateau four times in one sea-
son. Wide receiver Trevor Davis thinks Cal can
be even better offensively. “I think we can
score 70 in a game,” said Davis, who had a pair
of kickoff returns for touchdown in the win
against Washington State. “I’ve never been a
part of anything like this before.”
Goff going off
Cal’s soft-spoken team captain is putting up
eye-popping numbers on a weekly basis and is
on pace to become the school’s career passing
leader. Petersen said Goff is comparable to for-
mer Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr, who
now starts for the NFL’s Oakland Raiders.
Owner of numerous Cal records, Goff needs
only 10 more touchdown passes to break the
school’s single-season mark of 31 set by Pat
Barnes in 1996.

UN-cash Bids Are Winning!
Recently, I represented a CASH buyer on a property, which offered a quick close and
no contingencies and 12% over the asking.  The property was on the lower end of the
price scale for San Mateo County and it generated almost 20 bids.
The top bids for the property were more than 20% over asking and all of the top bids
were obtaining loans to purchase the home.  The good news for buyers who need loans
is that they have a chance against UN-loan offers.  These buyers are Owner User buyer
vs. Investors, and they are taking advan-
tage of low loan rates that still exist. 
They also have the advantage of tax
deductible mortgage interest and

Dwight Freeney said. “You start playing that game of ‘Oh,
they could do this, they could do that. ’
“You end up playing nothing in the game because they
could possibly just do the same thing and you’d be hitting
yourself over the head. So, we’re going to go out there and
just prepare for them as of what they’ve shown. ”
Here are some things to watch when the Raiders host the

the best football of his career, posting a passer rating of at
least 120 in each game during the four-game streak. Only
Kurt Warner and Johnny Unitas have streaks that long in
NFL history, but Rivers knows how quickly fortunes can
“The one thing about it is when you’ve won a handful in a
row that you can’t just think that winning is easy, ” Rivers
said. “It’s hard to win a game every week and we have that
mindset. ”
Captain Carr
Sparano pulled quarterback Derek Carr aside soon after tak-
ing over as coach and told him the team had no time for Carr
to be a rookie anymore with a leadership void on the losing
team. Carr has shown progress in his first four starts, but has
not done enough yet for a win.
“He’ll continue to grow, ” Sparano said. “He’s had some
bumps along the way here, bumps in the road, and he learns
from them. But, we’re happy with what he’s done. ”
Buffalo buddies
For a school that is far from a football powerhouse,
Buffalo has turned out two intriguing rookies this season.
Oakland linebacker Khalil Mack is living up to expectations
after being fifth overall but his former college roommate,
Branden Oliver, has been a revelation in San Diego. The
undrafted rookie ran for 114 yards and a TD last week against
the Jets in a performance that was a surprise to almost every-
one other than Mack.
“I let everybody know during the draft process that he was
one of the best running backs that I ever played against,
even though it was practice, ” Mack said.
Coaching comrades
Allen and Chargers coach Mike McCoy are longtime
friends who worked on the same staff in Denver and take fam-
ily vacations together. McCoy said he has talked to Allen
since his firing and is confident his friend will get another
chance as an NFL coach soon.
“That’s all part of the business, ” he said. “We’re doing our
thing here, and it’s all part of the business. We all understand
that when we get into it, it’s part of the process. ”

touchdowns. He opened the game with a 95-yard kickoff
return for a score when he found a seam through the middle
and sprinted absolutely untouched to get the Panthers on
the board just 13 seconds in.
Intrieri said his fellow returning back, junior Ben
Williams, predicted the big play just before the kickoff.
“He told me: ‘We’re taking this one to the house, ’ and we
did, ” Intrieri said. “I saw the hole, it was huge. I hit it and
it was a touchdown. ”
Behind an explosive first half by Intrieri, the Panthers
opened up a 21-0 lead midway through the second quarter.
But M-A (0-1, 1-4) soldiered back to make a game of it
behind sophomore running back Stavro Papadakis, who
posted a career best of his own with 154 yards on 27 car-
The Bears rode their running game to close Burlingame’s
lead to 21-14 midway through the third quarter. Then M-A
forced a three-and-out and regained possession with four
minutes remaining in the quarter. But two plays later, M-A
quarterback Robby Beardsley threw his first of two inter-
ceptions to allow Burlingame to close it out with two
unanswered scores.
The interception was nabbed by — who else? — Intrieri.
Burlingame head coach John Philipopoulos was all
smiles after the Panthers broke their five-game losing
streak against M-A dating back to Oct. 21, 2005.
“What I was worried about as the game went on is … us
wearing down, and it was interesting that the opposite
happened, ” Philipopoulos said.
It almost didn’t though, as Intrieri’s fast start almost
backfired by forcing Burlingame’s defense to play a major-
ity of the first-half minutes. M-A’s offense maintained the
ball for 16 minutes, 38 seconds in the first half.
“What was interesting about the first half, even though
we had the lead, it was all big plays, ” Philipopoulos said.
“So, our defense was on the field for much of the first
half. ”
In fact, Burlingame didn’t tab a first down in the game
until its final possession of the first half with just two
minutes remaining in the half. But in scoring three touch-
downs previous to that, the Panthers didn’t need them.
On the first play of the Panthers’ second possession of
the game, Intrieri took the carry and bolted up the left side-
line for an 81-yard score. Two Burlingame possessions
later, he again hit pay dirt on the first carry, powering
through the M-A defense by breaking three tackles before
jetting for a 77-yard touchdown.
After M-A closed to within one score in the third quarter,
Intrieri found the end zone again, capping a two-play, 25-
yard drive — both on carries by him — with a 13-yard
touchdown run.
“He’s been doing that all year, ” Philipopoulos said. “It’s
nice to have a guy that every time he touches the ball he’s
a threat to score. ”
Through five games, Intrieri has netted 553 yards rush-
With Burlingame leading 28-14, M-A made one more run
at an improbable comeback on the ensuing drive.
Beginning at its own 34-yard line, M-A marched downfield
with six consecutive positive running gains by its back-
field of Papadakis, Ondre Mitchell and Sivi Fillia. With
the ball at the Burlingame 19-yard line, however,
Beardsley went to the air for the first time on the drive and
had his pass intercepted by Burlingame cornerback
Cooper Gindraux.
After both teams played fumblerooski for a good por-
tion of the fourth quarter, Burlingame capped the game’s
scoring with a 10-play, 71-yard drive with Duran Andrade
closing with a 3-yard touchdown run.
“I thought we buckled down on defense, ” M-A head
coach Sione Ta’ufo’ou. “We’ve got to stay away from the
big plays. … In the end, they finished really well. They
made plays and had opportunities and we didn’t. ”
But in a physical game, something which is generally
M-A’s forte, Burlingame was keen to stick with its neme-
sis blow for blow.
“We came in here thinking these guys are the bigger
team, ” Dryden said. “But we’ve got the talent, we’ve got
the speed, and we were just going to ram it down their
throats and hammer ‘em and hammer ‘em then get back up
and keep fighting. ”

STANFORD — The defense came
as advertised for Stanford, and so did
the offense.
Cardinal coach David Shaw is at
the point where he finally accepts
that the good is going to come with
the bad this season, and he just hopes
his players can overcome the mis-
cues when the competition gets
Kevin Hogan threw for 284 yards
and three touchdowns, and No. 25
Stanford slowed down Connor
Halliday and the Air Raid offense in a
34-17 victory over Washington
State on Friday night.
“We’re going to try to be perfect
but also realize we’re not going to be
perfect,” Shaw said, citing a speech
star Ty Montgomery gave to the team
earlier in the day. “Give a great effort
and try to be perfect, but when we’re
not we can’t let the sky come falling
down around us. We’re just going to
play through our mistakes and con-
tinue to give a great effort.”
That approach was enough to get
by a one-dimensional team. Whether
it will work against the Pac-12’s
heavyweights on the horizon —
including games at Arizona State,
UCLA and Oregon — is still to be
Greg Taboado grabbed his first two
career TDs and fellow tight end Eric
Cotton had his first scoring catch to
help the Cardinal (4-2, 2-1) rebound
from a nonconference loss at Notre
Dame and renew their chase for a third
straight conference championship.
Aweek after Halliday threw for an
NCAA-record 734 yards in a 60-59
loss to California, the nation’s
stingiest scoring defense harassed
him all over the backfield.
Stanford held Halliday to 42-for-69
passing for 292 yards and two touch-
downs on mostly short and interme-
diate passes. The Cardinal also forced
one interception and had four sacks.
“We didn’t have time for downfield
passes,” Halliday said.
The Cougars (2-5, 1-3) have lost
two in a row, and their chances of
making consecutive bowl games
under Mike Leach look dim.
Stanford improved to 9-0 after
losses under Shaw and hasn’t dropped
consecutive games since October
2009. But penalties and mistakes in
the red zone cost the Cardinal from
taking control — which has been a
theme this season — against a
Washington State defense that strug-
gled again.
The usually stoic Shaw even broke
out of character a couple of times,
though it was often directed at offi-
cials, including tossing his headset
while arguing on the sideline for pass
interference. He also dropped his
hands to his side and shrugged after
fullback Patrick Skov fumbled while
trying to stretch the ball over the
goal line late in the first half.
Stanford still outgained
Washington State 477 to 266 yards
— enough to bring a smile out of
Tiger Woods on the sideline — and
leaned on its defense to do the rest.
The Cardinal entered the game with
the country’s best scoring defense
(8.6 points) and ranked second in
total defense (232 yards) and passing
defense (107 yards) per game. They
lived up to the billing again, hurry-
ing Halliday constantly to break up
the Cougars’ pass-happy schemes.
“Pressure changes everything,”
said safety Zach Hoffpauir, who led
Stanford with 15 tackles.
Halliday moved Washington State
well, at times, but never found his
quick-strike prowess. He tossed a 9-
yard touchdown pass to Vince Mayle
in the first quarter and threw across
his body for a 3-yard TD strike to
River Cracraft on fourth down to slice
Stanford’s lead to 24-17 early in the
Cracraft finished with 14 recep-
tions for 100 yards.
Montgomery hauled in seven pass-
es for 72 yards, Cotton caught a 39-
yard TD pass and Taboado tallied two
short scores from Hogan to give the
Cardinal a 24-10 lead. Hogan com-
pleted 23 of 35 passes.
Jordan Williamson made two of
three field goals, including a 34-
yarder to extend the Cardinal’s lead to
27-17 with 8:13 left. Quentin
Breshears kicked a 46-yard field goal
for Washington State earlier.
Remound Wright ran for 98 yards
and a TD in the closing minutes, and
Barry Sanders had 68 yards rushing
as the Cardinal totaled 193 yards on
the ground. The Cougars had minus-
26 yards rushing.
Cougars cornerback Charleston
White was helped off the field several
minutes after colliding with team-
mate Darius Lemora in the third quar-
ter. Stanford wide receiver Devon
Cajuste also stumbled off the field
after taking a hard hit, and linebacker
James Vaughters left with an undis-
closed injury.

NAPA— Martin Laird wasn’t sure
what to expect out of his game after a
seven-week break. He hasn’t found
too much wrong after two rounds of
the Frys.com Open.
Laird bounced back from his first
bogey of the new PGATour season
by running off four straight birdies
around the turn. One last birdie on the
par-5 18th at Silverado gave him a
second straight 5-under 67 and a one-
shot lead over Bae Sang-moon and
Zach Blair going into the weekend.
Blair was among 11 rookies to
make the cut in their debut as PGA
Tour members.
Silverado hadn’t hosted a PGATour
event since 1980, and it appeared the
players were starting to figure out
how to navigate the tight, winding
fairways and small greens that are all
about being on the right side of the
There were 13 rounds at 67 or bet-
ter, compared with only three in the
opening round.
One of them belonged to Jimmy
Walker, one of four players fresh off
the Ryder Cup who came to the
Frys.com Open. Walker opened with
a 75, and then he followed that with
eight birdies in a round of 66 that got
him to the weekend with room to
Hunter Mahan and Matt Kuchar
each had a 68 and were at least in
range of Laird. Lee Westwood played
in the morning through a marine
layer that made conditions more dif-
ficult. He shot a 69 to make the cut
by one shot.
Laird was at 10-under 134.
“You never know how you’re
going to play after seven weeks off
like I had,” Laird said. “Just to come
out and put back-to-back 67s up and
play very solid — very solid 67s —
I’m extremely happy.”
He made a sloppy bogey on the
sixth hole with a poor tee shot into
the bunker, hitting into another
bunker some 80 feet from the flag
and missing an 8-foot putt. He had to
scramble for par on the next hole,
and then he took off.
After a pair of short birdie putts,
Laird rolled in a birdie from 20 feet
on No. 10, and then made another
birdie putt from the same range up the
ridge toward a tucked pin on the par-3
Bae made all three of his birdies on
the par 5s and was at 135.
Blair finished second in the final
Web.com Tour Finals event to get his
card, and kept right on rolling at
Silverado. He had six birdies against
no bogeys, picking up four shots on
his final nine holes to get within one
shot of the lead.
Scott Langley, in his first event
since his wife gave birth to their first
child, had a 66 and was at 8-under
136, along with David Lingmerth
and Mark Hubbard, who had a hole-
in-one on the seventh hole on his
way to a 65.

The struggles of the Omaha Beach landing are depicted within the 88 acres of the National
D-Day Memorial in Bedford,Va. Here, a soldier drags a wounded comrade to a place of safety.
By Susan Cohn
War II, the town of Bedford in the Blue Ridge
Mountains of southwestern Virginia had a
population of about 3, 200. On D-Day, June
6, 1944, 30 of its young men landed at
Omaha Beach as part of the 116th Infantry
Regiment. By the end of the day, 19 of the
Bedford soldiers were dead. Three more
Bedford soldiers died later in the Normandy
campaign. Proportionately, Bedford suf-
fered this nation’s severest D-Day losses,
losing more residents per capita than any
other town. Today, the National D-Day
Memorial occupies 88 thoughtfully land-
scaped acres overlooking Bedford, honor-
ing all who strove with the Allied
Expeditionary Force on D-Day and telling
the story of the largest seaborne invasion in
April Cheek-Messier, President of the
National D-Day Memorial, said, “The
National D-Day Memorial means many
things to many people when they visit. For
veterans, it’s a tangible sign of the gratitude
of millions of free people around the globe
for the liberty and peace they enjoy today.
For the families of veterans, it’s a symbol of
the real struggle their loved ones fought on
behalf of their fellow man. For all
Americans, it’s a touchstone that connects
us with the story of a generation called upon
to save the future for generations to come.
For educators, the Memorial is a teaching
tool used to instruct and remind us all about
what it means to serve this nation in peace-
time and in war.   The Memorial teaches us
about character — the meaning of valor,
fidelity and sacrifice as shown a thousand
different ways not only by the men and
women of D-Day, but by those who followed
them in the conflicts to come; a lesson
worth preserving and sharing again and
again. ”
Memorial’s design encourages visitors to
learn the story of the Normandy Invasion by
walking through three distinct areas. First
is Reynold’s Garden, in the shape of the
Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary
Force combat patch. The Garden symbolizes
the planning and preparation activities for
the invasion. The second level, Gray Plaza,
reflects the landing and fighting stages of
the invasion. It includes what is called the
invasion pool, with beach obstacles in the
water, sculptures of soldiers struggling
ashore, and a representation of the Higgins
craft used for the invasion. Intermittent jets
of water spurting from the pool replicate the
sights and sounds of sporadic gunfire. The
uppermost plaza, Estes Plaza, with its dra-
matic Overlord Arch, celebrates victory.
SERVED. Memorial Education Coordinator
Felicia Lowrance said, “When visitors view
the National D-Day Memorial for the first
time, they are stunned by the beauty of the
setting and the scope of the Memorial. The
site allows visitors not only to explore the
historical aspect of D-Day, but also allows
for a personal connection through the sto-
ries that are told from those who lead the
tours. One of the great rewards of working
on the site is the ability to speak with and
learn from those who were there. Tour guides
incorporate stories from veterans they have
spoken to into the tour, creating something
unique, meaningful and memorable for
everyone. ” One of those working closely
with visitors is Korean War Veteran Bob L.
VandeLinde, who said, “I have been a volun-
teer tour guide at the National D-Day
Memorial for nine years. It is an important
part of my life to share with people about
the service and sacrifice of so many to pro-
vide not only our freedoms but the world’s
freedom as well. It’s an honor to serve and I
love telling this important story. ”

Fast-food containers, soda cans and other
trash litter the filthy apartment where a
nearly 600-pound man sprawls over a beat-
up old couch supported by cinder blocks in
the Marin Theatre Company production of
Samuel D. Hunter’s “The Whale. ”
The man, Charlie (Nicholas Pelczar), is
an online tutor of expository writing for
college freshmen. His only friend is Liz (Liz
Even though Liz is a nurse who looks
after him and apparently knows better, she
brings him his food, such as an entire tub of
fried chicken or two huge hamburgers. She
has a love-hate relationship with him.
Maybe she indirectly blames him for her
brother’s death.
Charlie and her brother, Alan, a Mormon,
had been lovers until Alan went to a service
at the Mormon church in their small north-
ern Idaho town, came home and stopped eat-
ing, thus starving himself to death. That’s
when Charlie began to allow his weight to
Much to her dismay, Liz arrives one day to
find Charlie listening to Elder Thomas
(Adam Magill), an earnest 19-year-old
Mormon missionary who had knocked on
his door.
Because of his morbid obesity, Charlie’s
health is rapidly declining. He suffers from
dangerously high blood pressure as well as
congestive heart failure. When he realizes
that he’s about to die, he reconnects with
his 17-year-old daughter, Ellie (Cristina
Oeschger), whom he hasn’t seen in 15
Ellie is a nasty, hate-filled girl who’s
mean to everyone. Charlie bribes her to
spend time with him and write for him.
The play’s fifth character is Mary
(Michelle Maxson), Charlie’s former wife
and Ellie’s mother, who has a relatively
short but powerful scene with Charlie.
MTC artistic director Jasson Minadakis
directs this Bay Area premiere with skill and
sensitivity and elicits multi-layered per-
formances from each actor.
Outfitted in a realistic-looking fat suit
(costumes by Christine Crook), Pelczar
delivers a tour de force as Charlie, making
every move a monumental effort.
As Charlie’s condition deteriorates,
Pelczar has him wheezing and gasping for
every breath as if it might be his last. It’s an
incredible feat of acting.
The other four actors are outstanding,
too, creating characters with complex moti-

alludes to “Moby Dick” and the biblical
story of Jonah and the whale in this play.
Sound designer Chris Houston reinforces
this device with sounds of the sea during
blackouts between scenes. The set is by
Michael Locher with lighting by Kurt
The play runs nearly two hours without
intermission, but it holds the audience rapt,
thanks to Hunter’s writing and Pelczar’s
performance for the ages.
“The Whale” will continue at Marin
Theatre Company, 397 Miller Ave. , Mill
Valley, through Oct. 26. For tickets and

‘The Whale’ focuses on morbidly obese man
Charlie (Nicholas Pelczar) tries to comfort his nurse and best friend Liz (Liz Sklar) in the Bay Area
premiere of Samuel D. Hunter’s ‘The Whale.’
By Lou Kesten
There’s a peculiar kind of tension at work
in Activision’s wildly successful
Skylanders series. If you just want a dozen
or so hours of fun, with fast-paced action
and an amusing story, a $75 starter pack
will get the job done. But if you want to see
every little thing packed into a Skylanders
game, be prepared to spend a couple hundred
dollars more on additional toys.
“Skylanders Trap Team” (for the Xbox
One, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation
3, Wii U, Wii, $75) doubles down on the
“gotta buy more” strategy. As usual, some
areas of the game are accessible only if you
have a Skylander figurine of a certain ele-
ment. This time, though, you also need an
assortment of traps to round up the bad
guys. Start saving your allowance now,
The “Trap Team” starter kit comes with
the game software, two Skylanders crea-
tures, two traps and a redesigned “Portal of
Power, ” which plugs into your game con-
sole. (There’s also a version for tablets that
has all those features, as well as a nifty con-
solelike controller. ) When you place a
Skylander on the portal, it appears
onscreen and you can take control of it.
The new portal also has a hole you can fit
a “traptanium” trap into. Whenever you
defeat a major enemy, you can force it into a
trap, provided the enemy and the trap are
made of matching elements. There are eight
elements, so if you want to catch them all
you’ll need to buy six more traps at $6
apiece — plus a special trap for the series’
ubervillain, Kaos.

years for someone to figure out how to han-
dle Judith Viorst’s perennial, which has sold
more than four million copies since its pub-
lication in 1972 and has spawned three
sequels, the latest published this year.
Screenwriter Rob Lieber’s way of filling
out the conceit to feature-length running
time is to have atrocious things happen not
only to the 11-year-old title character but to
his entire family and spread the calamities
across two days. If this just seems like too
much negativity to contemplate, or too
close to real life, this exercise in schaden-
freude is, in the event, surprisingly good-
natured and, under Miguel Arteta’s fleet
direction, seemingly over in the snap of a
“The day before” the big day in question,
the agreeable Alexander (open-faced
Australian Ed Oxenbould) receives a mighty
blow upon learning that the most popular
kid in school is throwing a party the next
night at the same time as his own 12th birth-
day party, meaning that no one, including
the girl he likes, will come to his bash. Also
on tap the next day: His unemployed dad Ben
(Steve Carell) has a big job interview with a
video gaming company, mom Kelly
(Jennifer Garner) is overseeing a celebrity
book reading event for her hard-to-please
boss, teen brother Anthony (Dylan
Minnette) is chauffeuring snooty girlfriend
Celia (Bella Thorne) to the junior prom pro-
vided he passes his driver’s test, and sister
Emily (Kerris Dorsey) is starring in a school
production of “Peter Pan. ” Plus the baby of
the family, Trevor (Elise and Zoey Vargas),
can be counted upon to continue crying a lot.
The worst day begins with everyone wak-
ing up late. Alexander is the recipient of the
only good news: The popular kid has chick-
en pox, so Alexander’s bash is back on full
steam. Otherwise, Murphy’s Law lays siege
to the family: Emily becomes ill as well,
endangering her performance; the car battery
dies on the day of Anthony’s driving test, a
calamity that also forces Kelly to bike to her
event (featuring an unbilled Dick Van Dyke)
that’s beset by a PG-lewd book misprint, and
the lack of a baby sitter forces Ben to take
baby Trevor along to meet his potential new
bosses, who are half his age.
The arguable comic highlight is
Anthony’s driving test, which is presided
over by a farcically overbearing woman
(Jennifer Coolidge). Kelly’s mishaps with
her author’s event simply seem too prepos-
terous to be funny, while the “Peter Pan”
misadventures are similarly low-voltage.
On the other hand, the interplay between
Ben and the gamer geeks is not unamusing,
even if Ben’s tolerance for agreeably filling
the role of a “fommy” (father-mommy)
would seem to exceed ordinary limits. The
homily-laden wrap-up, stressing the upside
of bad days, is enough to make you hold your
nose, but it only lasts a moment.
The cast is uniformly game and the film-
makers have thoughtfully included some-
thing at the end for all the moms who will
drag the small fry to see this — a bunch of
hunky Aussie cowboy strippers who begin
performing before they realize they’re at a
kid’s birthday party.

But the word has more impact when it’s
used sparingly. I have been numbed to the
word “struggle, ” like a drug addict shot
with so much heroin she can’t even feel it
anymore. What are you supposed to do
when you’re actually going through some-
thing rough, but can no longer command
enough attention because of your reputa-
tion for exaggeration?
That would be bad. In fact, I think it’s bad
enough that calling it a “struggle” would be
entirely appropriate.

across the facade, is nestled in an
industrial neighborhood on the east-
ern terminus of Howard Avenue. At a
passing glance, it could be the bakery
where your grandmother worked her
way through the Great Depression,
and in truth, it actually might be.
KitchenTown’s location was once
exclusively home to Anna’s, a Danish
cookie bakery that has served the San
Francisco area since 1938. As luck
would have it, Anna’s was looking to
sell the business and the warehouse
j ust as l ongt i me fri ends, and co-
founders of Ki t chenTown, Rust y
Schwartz and Alberto Solis were look-
ing for a home to nurture their game-
changing concept.
So KitchenTown was born. While
Anna’s remains a staple brand on the
KitchenTown roster, the warehouse
space was totally renovated and fitted
with all manner of industrial cooking
equipment, from standard ovens to a
chocol at i er assembl y l i ne, al l of
whi ch can be reconfi gured at a
moment’s notice to accommodate the
needs of the various other makers that
use the kitchen.
“I think the only thing that’s bolt-
ed in place is the sinks, ” said Shelley
Ki eran, di rect or of market i ng and
communi cat i ons for Ki t chenTown.
“The set up i s very versat i l e so a
maker can come in and set things up
the way they like to work. ”
At the front of the building is a
chic, modern cafe that redefines the
term “open kitchen. ” Floor-to-ceil-
ing glass doors separate diners from
the bustling expanse of polished steel
machinery and wood slabs beyond.
Kitchen activity ranges from a few
cooks artfully preparing your sand-
wich, to teams of makers baking gra-
nola or dipping caramel corn for dis-
t ri but i on t o l ocal market s. The
strangely pleasant thing about this is
the glass doors are essentially sound-
proof, creating a Zen quiet that lends
itself to finishing the crossword puz-
zle over a buttery croissant and a cup
of coffee. This is not a noisy peek
over the bar at a harried short-order
cook. This is dinner and a show like
you’ve never seen before.
“Customers are kind of surprised to
see it and they end up liking it, ”
Schwartz said. “Actually a lot of peo-
ple like to sit facing the kitchen and
just watch the action while they’re
here. ”
Even the building can be reconfig-
ured to an extent.
“The doors open up and we can turn
this into one big space, ” Kieran said.
“So we can use both areas at once for
events like classes, and popups for
local chefs. ”
The people working in the kitchen
are not just cooking for the cafe. In
fact, they are mostly cooking for
themselves, or for their own busi-
nesses, rather. KitchenTown’s facili-
ties are home to 19 locally distributed
makers i ncl udi ng Anna’s cooki es,
Three Trees al mond mi l k and
Mammoth energy bars are among the
growing client list. Schwartz’s and
Solis’ idea was for anyone who wants
to turn a passion for cooking into a
business to have a place to start. Each
maker, once properly certified, can
pay the dues, $30 an hour plus $150 a
mont h, and schedul e t i me t o use
KitchenTown’s facilities and employ-
ees to make their products.
The KitchenTown model intends for
makers to graduate out by growing
large enough, or stable enough, to
stand on their own feet and allow
room for new makers.
“The idea is to support small mak-
ers who maybe don’t have the capaci-
ty to get bigger, or maybe don’t want
to get bigger, ” Schwartz said. “Maybe
you do a couple of farmers’ markets a
week, and the reality is you don’t need
a full kitchen seven days a week, you
just need a place where you can pop in
and do a couple of batches or work a
couple of days a week to meet your
demand. You can do that here. ”
Even novice makers are welcomed.
Schwartz’s son Sam didn’t truly dis-
cover his love of bread making until
he got a taste for the KitchenTown
community experience.
“Wi t h l i mi t ed experi ence, I j ust
started baking bread every day, ” Sam
Schwartz said. “It’s been incredible
getting to meet customers here and
getting their feedback on bread. It’s
been a really big hit, so now I have
the little bit of demand here and I need
to supply for it. ”
That was the idea when Solis and
Schwart z set out t o make
KitchenTown a reality. They wanted
to build a home to nurture and support
local artisans, to enhance the flavors
that already existed, so to speak, and
make food from the community and
for the community.
“For most people, the best loaf of
bread that they’ve ever tasted was
probably a gift from a neighbor or
something that they got from a fami-
ly friend, ” Sam Schwartz said. “That’s
what I want to bring back here. ”
As Sam Schwart z waxes poet i c
about his breads, he begins speaking
almost in metaphors for KitchenTown
“I love when it looks like it was
maybe a mistake, but you cut right
i nt o i t and i t has a real l y t ender
crumb, and it smells really nice, ” Sam
Schwartz said. “That’s the fun of start-
ing out is you get all kinds of inter-
esting looking breads, and figuring
out what a good one is. You can’t tell
from the outside necessarily, but the
more interesting it looks the more it
calls you to taste it. ”
KitchenTown is at 1007 Howard
Ave. in San Mateo. The cross street is

Shannon Wolf and Carol Campbell,
copresidents of the San Carlos
Teachers Association, were “taken
aback” by the 3-2 vote but said in a
joint statement, “we look forward to a
productive, collaborative year with the
board and the district. ”
The agreement is effective July 1,
2013, with $1, 000 toward health care
beginning July 1, 2014, and another
$1, 000 starting Jan. 1, 2015. The
increase for all affected workers includ-
ing management and confidential
groups is $1, 065, 831 total for the cur-
rent fiscal year.
The agreement also maintains class
size ratios for now but the reduction of
three teachers beginning in 2015-16.
Rak said the San Carlos Teachers
Association held the district “hostage”
on class size which forces configura-
tions like split classes with uneven
gender and grade ratios that aren’t in
students’ best interests.
Rak added the board is concerned
about the financial impact of the raise
and additional health care costs but is
focused now on finding new revenue —
possibly through a parcel tax — rather
than considering the need for future
cuts or changes to accommodate the
This marks the third year in a row
teachers received raises.
“We would love to pay teachers more
but there has to be some balance finan-
cially without putting us in a difficult
situation for the long term, ” Rak said.
In remarks delivered at Thursday
night’s meeting, Rosenblatt also said
there’s no doubt teachers need to be
paid more but that there is little local
control over funding and it will con-
tinue being tight for many years
because the district is not a beneficiary
of the new Local Control Funding
Formula. He also called the collective
bargaining process antiquated and

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Curtail your spending
habits. Putting some money into a long-term
investment will lessen your temptation to
overspend. You should also set up a reasonable
budget and stick to it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Someone around you
will not give a true assessment of a situation you face.
Discreet inquiries will enable you to find out the truth.
Don’t be too free with your personal information.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You will gain
more respect and help if you treat your partners
as equals. Whether at home or at work, people
appreciate fairness as well as praise.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Stay on top of your
game. Opportunities come and go quickly. Keep up
to date with industry trends and get in touch with
potential partners.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Clear the air. If there
is discord among the people you live with, you need
to conduct a serious dialogue in order to remedy the
situation. Don’t ignore the obvious.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Don’t pass on a
chance to travel. Keep your passport and personal
papers up to date so that you will be ready to go at a
moment’s notice.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — You can accomplish
plenty if you put in overtime at work. Not only will you
clear your schedule, you can gain recognition from
your superiors and bring in extra cash.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Quick decisions will be
your downfall. Avoid buying things on impulse, and
don’t fly off the handle if your partner offers friendly
advice. Think things through before you act.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Keep your personal and
professional lives separate. An emotional attachment
to a co-worker is likely to cause mistrust and
dissatisfaction among your other colleagues. Keep your
mind on the job, not on who’s watching you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Children will have
a positive effect on your day. New relationships
are possible if you participate in family-oriented
events or activities. Get out and enjoy what your
community has to offer.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Plan to do something that
allows you to be introspective. Reading, writing
or listening to music will help calm your nerves.
Discussions will be less than satisfactory.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If you feel restless,
check out local educational opportunities. For
inspiration, consider learning a new language, doing
some painting or taking part in a discussion group
that offers cultural information.

lion to the 2012 campaign to get Measure A
Dave Pine, president of the Board of
Supervisors, said the county’s continued
funding is predicated on Prime continuing
the agreements but nothing is assured.
“The agreement with Seton applies to
Seton and Seton only. It does not pass to
the successor entity. It’s impossible to say
where the county will go at this point. We’ll
have to see what the final agreement looks
like, ” Pine said.
The sale must still be approved by the
Vatican and California Attorney General
Kamala Harris.
The bid by Prime — chosen from four
finalists culled from a 133-candidate pool
— was superior in all categories, according
to DCHS.
“[O]ur priority was to seek the best buyer
who could guide our hospitals into a suc-
cessful future while honoring the obliga-
tions to our associations, retirees and other
constituents, ” Robert Issai, DCHS presi-
dent and CEO, said in a prepared statement.
Union opinions
The potential threat to those obligations
sparked much opposition to the Prime sale
even before Friday’s announcement and the
SEIU-United Healthcare Workers West wast-
ed no time Friday morning announcing
plans for a TV advertising campaign urging
Harris to reject the sale. The union says
Prime’s history includes investigations for
allegedly overbilling Medicare and threat-
ening to take the DCHS hospitals into
“We are not going to roll over and risk
watching Prime Healthcare cut services,
raise prices and lay off caregivers like
they’ve done in so many other communities
in California and other states, ” said SEIU-
UHW President Dave Regan who called the
sale “disappointing. ”
On the other end of the spectrum, the
California Nurses Association opposes any
blocking of the sale, saying that and not
the sale is what would jeopardize vital hos-
pital services, jobs and health. CNA reached
an agreement with Prime for Seton,
O’Connor and St. Vincent Medical Center in
Los Angeles that promises the hospitals
will be operated for a minimum of five
years, all pension promises made to current
and future retirees remain intact and no serv-
ices will be reduced. CNA also said the two
entities reached a framework agreement on
collective bargaining rights, job preserva-
tion and maintaining labor standards.
Regan said he didn’t know the terms of the
CNA agreement but that it is no guarantee.
“Those, if they exist, aren’t worth the
paper they’re printed on if Prime declares
bankruptcy, ” Regan said.
Regan said DCHS’s finances are so deteri-
orated it’s hard to believe the CNA thinks
nothing will change.
SEIU-UHW is still promoting Blue Wolf
Capital Partners as the best buyer for the
hospitals and Regan said he hopes the
advertising campaign educates the public
about the alternative.
If the sale is approved, Prime said it is
will also spend at least $150 million on
capital improvements over the next three
years and protect 7, 600 jobs.
"We are committed to preserving these
hospitals and continuing to deliver the
highest quality patient care to the communi-
ties they serve, ” Dr. Prem Reddy, president
and CEO of Prime Healthcare, said in a pre-
pared statement.
Local concern
Those promises, however, may not be
enough to appease San Mateo County offi-
cials who’ve been watching the process
closely since DCHS put the six hospitals on
the sales block in January. In August, the
Daly City Council adopted a resolution call-
ing on Harris to order any buyer of Seton
Medical Center to keep the facility operat-
ing as a full-service acute hospital with the
same employees, labor agreements and pen-
sion obligations. On Friday, Canepa reiter-
ated his commitment.
“I am looking forward to ensuring that
Seton Medical Center remains a full-service
hospital and to the California state attorney
general’s review of the new buyer, ” Canepa
In August, state Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San
Mateo, also sent a letter to Harris saying he
was troubled by the idea of Prime being a
top bidder. On Friday, Hill said his position
hasn’t changed.
“I’m really concerned because Seton espe-
cially has been a troubled hospital because
of the large Medi-Cal population it serves.
It’s going to be a struggle, ” he said. “I’m
very apprehensive. ”
Assemblyman Rich Gordon, D-Menlo
Park, also joined the chorus urging Harris to
ensure the sale terms protect patients and
“I have serious concerns about the
announced sale of Seton Coastside from the
Daughters of Charity to Prime Healthcare, ”
said Gordon, whose district includes the
Moss Beach hospital. “Available evidence
demonstrates that Prime’s record and
approach to health care could be detrimental
to the services [there]. ”
Prime Healthcare and the Prime Healthcare
Foundation own and operate 29 acute-care
facilities in nine states.
In voicing his “grave” concerns, Mullin
echoed the SEIU-UHW in ticking off Prime’s
troubles like the fraudulent billing investi-
gation along with unfair business practices,
regulator problems and violations of work-
er rights.
“I do not believe this sale will be in the
best interest of the community. I would like
to see the attorney general block the sale.
. . . It is imperative that we protect the inter-
ests of patients and workers, ” Mullin said in
a prepared statement.

Police described the suspect as a white
man in his 30s with short dark hair. He was
clean-shaven and dressed professionally in
a white button-up shirt.
The BMW had unknown paper license
Belmont police said the suspect could be
the same man Palo Alto police are searching
for in connection with a Thursday indecent
exposure incident, the third to occur in the
city this week.
Police said the victim, a woman in her
20s, was riding her bicycle in the 4300
block of Miller Avenue when she saw a vehi-
cle drive by and stop ahead of her in the mid-
dle of the street.
As she rode by, a man called to her, so she
stopped to looked and saw the man mastur-
Police said she immediately rode away and
reported the incident about 30 minutes later.
Palo Alto police released a sketch of the
suspect in Thursday’s incident Friday. The
victim described the suspect as a white male
between 40 and 50 years old. She said he
was clean-cut, “professional looking” and
wearing a yellow button-down shirt and
“sporty” sunglasses.
He was in a white four-door BMW.
Police said they don’t know if the
Thursday incident, reported around 4 p. m. ,
is related to two earlier incidents reported
on Monday and Tuesday that occurred about
three miles away, also in Palo Alto.
In the Monday incident, a man in a navy
blue pickup truck pulled up next to a 14-
year-old girl just before 5 p. m. and started
masturbating while staring at her. That inci-
dent occurred in the 1600 block of Bryant
Street near Castillija School, a middle and
high school for girls.
In t he Tuesday i nci dent , a 10-year-ol d
gi rl was wal ki ng her dog j ust aft er 6: 30
p. m. near Byron St reet and Seal e Avenue
bet ween Jordan Mi ddl e School and
Wal t er Hays El ement ary School when a
man pul l ed up i n a four-door Vol vo,
exposed hi msel f and asked t he gi rl i f she
want ed t o t ouch hi s peni s.
Police said extra staffing has been
brought in to help investigate the cases,
and there has been an increased presence of
marked and unmarked patrols that are pay-
ing attention to school commute routes used
by students.
In Palo Alto, anyone with information on
these cases is asked to call the Palo Alto
Police Department’s 24-hour dispatch cen-
ter at (650) 329-2413. Anonymous tips can
be e-mailed to paloalto@tipnow. org or sent
via text or voicemail to (65) 383-8984.
In Belmont, anyone with information
about the cases can call Belmont police at
(650) 595-7400 or the Belmont Police
Crime Tip Line at (650) 398-3000.
