A retirement that mixes politics with pints


Lenny Mendonca leads Brews and Views at Half Moon Bay Brewing Company
By Jeanita Lyman
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

Brewers are a passionate bunch,


particularly brewery owners.
Combining passion with running
a business can leave little time for
anything
else,
but
Lenny
Mendonca, of Half Moon Bay
Brewing Company, manages to not
only juggle his interest in politics

with his love of


brewing, but to
combine them
seamlessly.
We do an
Alection,
Mendonca said.
We started it in
the 2008 election, the presidential election,

so we had a McCain ale and an


Obama ale, then in 2012 we had an
Obama and a Romney ale, and well
do one in 2016. Its been really fun
because, now people know this, but
the first one we had them labeled
separately and we had a TV crew
come in and ask people which beer
they liked better. Everyone had a
really strong opinion; theyd tell
you exactly why that one was better,

and at the end of it wed tell them


its the exact same beer but with different labels. The president
(Obama) really loves it.
Although he grew up in a rural
community and had only left the
state once for a sixth-grade trip
before he set off to study politics
and economics at Harvard
University, Mendoncas interest in
his community and in politics were

budding early on.


By far the most important influences for me were my grandfather
and father, who started farms and
were also deeply involved in the
community in the Central Valley,
Mendonca said.
His interest continued to blossom
at Harvard, where he established the

Although Mayor Jeff Gee said


congestion on Farm Hill Boulevard
has declined significantly since
Tuesday, he also said the pilot program to restripe the thoroughfare for
safety reasons may be shortened.
The council approved a one-year
pilot program to reduce the number
of lanes from four to three, which
includes a left turn center lane, and
two bicycle lanes, on Farm Hill
Boulevard and Jefferson Avenue.
On Tuesday, traffic was snarled
on Farm Hill and Jefferson so bad in

the morning that it caused angry


commuters to call for an end to the
pilot on the very day it started.
Councilman Ian Bain told the
Daily Journal Wednesday that
approving the pilot may have been a
mistake by the council.
Councilwomen Alicia Aguirre and
Rosanne Foust also expressed displeasure with how the city rolled out
the program.
In a letter to residents, Gee said
the city anticipates the congestion to
be short term.

Lawmakers want special


session to tackle drought
By Juliet Williams
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO A bipartisan
group of 47 state Assembly members delivered a letter to Gov. Jerry
Brown on Friday asking him to
declare a special session to tackle
problems related to Californias
ongoing drought.
In the letter provided to the
Associated Press, they say a special

session is needed to address the


unprecedented water crisis, which
could worsen as California faces the
prospect of an El Nino weather pattern that could bring severe flooding.

reports that as much as half of the
$687 million set aside to help

This Day in History


In a speech at Rice University in
Houston, President John F. Kennedy
reaffirmed his support for the manned
space program, declaring: We choose
to go to the moon in this decade and do
the other things, not because they are easy, but because they
are hard.

my church on public matters, and the church does not speak
for me.
In 1974, Emperor Haile Selassie was deposed by Ethiopias
military after ruling for 58 years.
In 1977, South African black student leader Steve Bik died

San Mateo police assists San


Rafael with robbery arrests

BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

An investigation by San Rafael and San


Mateo police led to the arrest of two Bay Area
residents suspected of two armed robberies in
San Rafael this month.
A male suspect robbed a 72-year-old man
and a 56-year-od woman in the 200 block of C
Street around 11:20 p.m. Sept. 2, San Rafael
police Lt. Dan Fink said.
The male suspect put a gun to the back of
the womans head and demanded money.
When no money was found, the suspect took
the mans wallet containing cash and credit
cards which were later used at a convenience
store in Albany and the next day at a convenience store in San Mateo, Fink said. Both
transactions were recorded on video.
San Rafael police sent the video to law

enforcement agencies in the Bay Area and San


Mateo police identified the male suspect as
Paris Kurt Ragland Jr., 30, of Pittsburg and a
female seen in the video as Danielle Kristin
OConnor, 26, of Redwood City, Fink said.
On Wednesday around 1 a.m., a 63-year-old
woman was choked and hit in the head with a
gun until she was unconscious in the 200
block of Merrydale Road in San Rafael, Fink
said. The woman had surgery and is in stable
condition.
The suspect took the womans purse, which
was found at 11 a.m. Wednesday, and police
determined the womans credit card was used
in the same convenience store on C Street in

San Rafael, Fink said. That transaction also


was captured on video.
Detectives identified OConnor as the
woman in the second video and notified San
Mateo police both she and Ragland were
wanted in connection with both robberies,
Fink said.
San Mateo police located a vehicle they
believed belonged to the two suspects around
7:45 p.m. Wednesday in a parking lot of a San
Mateo hotel, Fink said.
Ragland and OConnor left a rented room
and drove away but were stopped and arrested
by San Mateo police based on information
from San Rafael police. A handgun and evidence from the Merrydale Road robbery were
found in the suspects vehicle, Fink said.
Ragland and OConnor were booked in the
Marin County Jail. OConnor posted bail and
Raglands bail is $250,000.

STATE GOVERNMENT
The Assembly passed Assembly Bill 339, authored by
Assemblyman Rich Gordon, D-Menlo Park.
The bill would cap the amount an individual pays out-of-pocket at
$250 for a single 30-day prescription. Californians with cancer,
HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis or other serious
conditions can face costs of thousands of dollars for necessary medications and can pay as much as $6,600 out of pocket, according to
Gordons office.
The Assembly passed the legislation Friday in a vote of 45-21. The Senate passed AB 339
Thursday with a vote of 25-13. The bill now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown for consideration.
A bill authored by Gordon to allow people who grow fruit and vegetables in their personal, community, school or culinary gardens have an easier time selling or giving their produce away passed the Legislature.
Assembly Bill 234 clarifies and expands Assembly Bill 1990 (Gordon, 2014) by authorizing a community food producer or gleaner to sell or provide whole uncut fruit or vegetables, or unrefrigerated eggs directly to a permitted food facility instead of just a restaurant,
in addition to direct sales to the public and to cottage food operators. The legislation also
excuses growers who donate their fruits and vegetables to food banks from registering with
the local health enforcement agencies, according to Gordons office.
The Assembly passed AB 234 Friday with a vote of 53-10 and a Senate vote of 27-13
Thursday. The bill now goes to Brown for consideration.

French train heroes: Foiling attack gives new view on 9/11


By Terence Chea
and Krinsten J. Bender
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO Three Americans who


stopped a gunman on a Paris-bound passenger
train talked about the significance of 9/11 on
Friday at a festive parade hosted by their
California hometown and in an interview to
air on national television.
It was a rare appearance by all three childhood friends U.S. Airman Spencer Stone,
Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos
and Anthony Sadler since their ordeal in
August.
They spoke to Megyn Kelly of Fox News
The Kelly File before joining a hometown
heroes parade hosted by Sacramento Mayor
Kevin Johnson.
The men have become widely lauded figures and sudden celebrities, making appearances on late-night talk shows, receiving a
congratulatory call from President Barack
Obama and earning Frances highest honor
from President Francois Hollande.
Kelly asked the trio whether they have a
different appreciation of what happened 14
years ago when the twin towers fell Sept. 11,
2001.
I feel so much more connected to terrorist
attacks and things like that and victims of terrorist attacks, said Skarlatos, 22, in an

Later, the friends stood on a float reading


Sacramento Hometown Heroes as hundreds
of people filled the streets to honor the men.
The lunchtime mood was festive with marching bands, classic cars, patriotic balloons and
lots of confetti.
We love Sacramento, and we never
thought anything like this would happen,
said Stone, 23.
Each of the men took the stage on the steps
of the California Capitol briefly following the
parade.
This support is amazing and we all love
you, Stone said, and like Anthony said, we
dont want to forget why were gathered
today.
The parade was held to honor the trio as
well as to remember victims of the Sept. 11
terror attacks. A moment of silence was held
for those who died 14 years ago. A C-17
Globemaster out of Travis Air Force Base
flew overhead before the men spoke.
Robert Greer, 69, watched the floats and
said the city was proud.

Bills to regulate medical marijuana


clear state Senate ahead of deadline
By Lisa Leff
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO With California


voters likely to consider legalizing recreational marijuana use next year, lawmakers appeared poised to regulate and rein in
the states free-wheeling medical marijuana industry ahead of a legislative deadline.
The Legislature was expected to finish
voting Friday on a package of bills that
would create the first statewide licensing
and operating rules for pot growers and
retail weed outlets since the state became
the first to legalize medical marijuana in
1996.
After 20 years, we have an agreement
on a comprehensive regulatory regime
and that is historic, said Assemblyman
Rob Bonta, D-Oakland, the lead author of
the main Assembly bill. We knew it had
to be done this year.
The framework seeks to manage medical marijuana from seed to smoke, calling

for 17 separate license categories, detailed


labeling requirements and a product tracking system complete with bar codes and
shipping manifests.
If enacted as drafted, it would not only
impose strict controls on an industry that
never has had to comply with any but provide a template for how recreational marijuana might be treated if it is legalized.
Another major piece of legislation
awaiting legislative action Friday included a landmark climate change bill that
Gov. Jerry Brown and Senate President
Pro Tem Kevin de Leon were forced to
scale back this week, and dozens of other
bills.
Among the laws that made it to the governors desk on the Legislatures last day
of business was a bill that would allow terminally ill patients to legally end their
lives. The measure faces an uncertain
future with Gov. Jerry Brown, a former
Jesuit seminarian who has not said
whether he will sign it.

Also Friday, a bipartisan group of 47


state Assembly members delivered a letter
to Brown asking him to declare a special
session to tackle problems related to
Californias ongoing drought.
Racing to meet a deadline for passing
the marijuana plan hashed out late
Thursday, senators on Friday night
approved two of the three bills comprising
the regulatory structure.
One, AB266 by Assemblyman Rob
Bonta, D-Oakland, establishes a Bureau
of Medical Marijuana Regulation to oversee licensing and operating rules for pot

The other bill, AB243 by Assemblyman

It passed 30-8.

State lawmakers approve right-to-die legislation
SACRAMENTO California lawmakers gave final approval
Friday to a bill that would allow terminally ill patients to legally
end their lives.
The measure faces an uncertain future with Gov. Jerry Brown,
a former Jesuit seminarian who has not said whether he will sign
it. Senators approved the bill on a 23-14 vote after an emotional
debate on the final day of the legislative session.
Eliminate the needless pain and the long suffering of those
who are dying, urged Democratic Sen. Lois Wolk, one of the
bills co-authors.
Opponents said the measure could prompt premature suicides.
Im not going to push the old or the weak out of this world,
and I think that could be the unintended consequence of this legislation, said Republican Sen. Ted Gaines.
The measure to allow doctors to prescribe life-ending medication succeeded on its second attempt after the heavily publicized
case of Brittany Maynard. The 29-year-old California woman
with brain cancer moved to Oregon to legally take her life.

Challenging Clinton, Sanders


seeks black support in South
By Bill Barrow and Ken Thomas
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SUMTER, S.C. The Bernie


Sanders phenomenon has been driven
almost entirely by white supporters.
Now the Vermont senator is out to overcome hurdles with prospective black
voters who are still learning about him
and could shape whether his underdog
campaign for the 2016 Democratic nomination can last.
Sanders, who organized sit-ins over
segregated housing as a college student
during the civil rights movement, must
cut into Hillary Rodham Clintons
advantage with African-Americans if
hes to do well in South Carolinas
February primary, where more than half
the voters are expected to be black, and
in other Southern states that follow in
March.
Polls find the independent Vermont
senator building a lead over Clinton in

New Hampshire and


closing the gap in
Iowa, two mainly
white states very
much unlike the
more diverse Super
Tuesday states of
Alabama, Georgia,
Tennessee, Virginia
and others.
Bernie Sanders
The independent
Vermont senator and
his advisers say his policies and personal story can resonate among black voters
if the campaign can reach them. He
says he plans to emphasize his personal
efforts more as he campaigns, beginning
this weekend with a swing through
Georgia, South Carolina and North
Carolina.
I believe when the African-American
community in South Carolina and
around the country understands that I
have one of the strongest civil rights

records in Congress
and was involved in
the civil rights movement for many years
before I went to
Congress, they will
respond, Sanders
said in an interview.
That would mark a
shift from recent
Hillary Clinton months. At several
appearances
in
South Carolina in August, he drew overwhelmingly white audiences, and he
hasnt talked much about his civil rights
past.
Hes been linking his policy proposals
to challenges in the African-American
community, citing dire economic statistics for blacks, blasting private, for-profit prisons and their role in incarceration
of young black males, and bemoaning
institutional racism and militarization
of local police forces.

Rick Perry first to exit
2016 Republican presidential race
ST. LOUIS Out of money and relegated once again to the
back-of-the-pack debate, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry on
Friday dropped out of the race for president, ending his second bid for the
Republican presidential nomination and
becoming the first major candidate of the
2016 campaign to give up on the White
House.
The longest-serving governor in Texas
history, who had never lost an election
until he started running for president, told
a group of conservative activists in St.
Rick Perry
Louis that some things have become
clear and that it was time to suspend his campaign.
We have a tremendous field of candidates probably the
greatest group of men and women, Perry said. I step aside
knowing our party is in good hands, as long as we listen to the
grassroots, listen to that cause of conservatism. If we do that,
then our party will be in good hands.

High blood pressure: Study


backs more aggressive treatment
WASHINGTON A major new study shows treating high
blood pressure more aggressively than usual cuts the risk of
heart disease and death in people over age 50, the National
Institutes of Health said Friday.
How tightly to control hypertension is controversial, especially as people get older. But the studys preliminary results
showed strong enough benefits that NIH stopped the research
about a year early.
More intensive management of high blood pressure in people 50 years and older can save lives and reduce cardiovascular complications such as heart attacks, said Dr. Gary
Gibbons, director of the NIHs National Heart, Lung and
Blood Institute, which sponsored the study.
An estimated 1 in 3 adults in the U.S. has high blood pressure, raising the risk of heart attacks, stroke, kidney failure and
other health problems.

SAN ANDREAS A wildfire in Northern California grew


explosively Friday, forcing hundreds of people to evacuate
from rural communities, destroying six homes, threatening
thousands more, and prompting a state-of-emergency declaration from the governor.
Its expanding like a balloon, state fire spokeswoman
Nancy Longmore said. Its moving very fast. Theres many
homes threatened. ... This fire is extremely dangerous.
The fire that had only burned about a single square mile
Thursday morning had surged to 101 square miles by Friday
evening. It was 5 percent contained.
At one point, the blaze was bearing down on the 2,700 residents of San Andreas, prompting an evacuation order for the
entire town 60 miles southeast of Sacramento. But the fire
changed direction, and the order was called off a short time
later, state fire spokesman Daniel Berlant said.

Amid ongoing crisis,
Baltimore mayor wont seek re-election
BALTIMORE Baltimore Mayor Stephanie RawlingsBlakes announcement Friday that she wont seek re-election
in 2016 comes as the city struggles to stabilize in the wake of riots, a harrowing
spike in violence, and the firing of a police
commissioner who oversaw a department
now under federal investigation.
Rawlings-Blake, who has been
Baltimores mayor for five years, said her
decision was heavily influenced by the distinct hardships Baltimore faces after
Freddie Gray, a black man, died in police
Stephanie
Rawlings-Blake custody. Grays death inspired protests and
unrest that left buildings smoldering and
millions of dollars in damage.
The mayor, who is black, faced harsh criticism for her handling of that crisis, with critics saying she was nowhere to be
seen for five hours as structures were set aflame and windows
smashed.

Police: Man shot by guard at Union Station dies


WASHINGTON A man stabbed a woman and then was
shot by a security guard at Washingtons Union Station on
Friday, sending people fleeing outside as trains were briefly
stopped and officers converged on the massive transit hub.
The man died later Friday, police said.
I saw people running, and I just started running. It sounded
like it was right next to me, said Ursula Lauriston, a 28-yearold magazine editor who was ordering lunch at Jamba Juice,
one of dozens of restaurants and shops in the station. People
were completely confused as to what was going on, and no one
knew whether to run or hide.
The violence broke out on the 14th anniversary of the Sept.
11 terrorist attacks, but police said there was no apparent connection.
Obviously, with this being 9/11, fears were heightened and
escalated, D.C. police Commander Jeff Brown said.

Sept. 11 victims relatives mark


anniversary with grief, appeals
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK During years of going


to ground zero every Sept. 11, Tom
Acquaviva has seen crowds diminish at
the ceremonies commemorating the terror attacks. But his determination to participate hasnt.
As long as Im breathing, Ill be
here, Acquaviva, 81, said Friday as he
arrived to pay tribute to his late son, Paul.
More than 1,000 victims relatives,
survivors and recovery workers marked
the 14th anniversary at ground zero with
grief, gratitude and appeals to keep the
toll front of mind as years pass. Its a
hard day. But its an important day. Ill
come every year that I can, recovery
worker Robert Matticola said.
But if the private ceremony is smaller
than in its early years, the date also has
become an occasion for the public to
revisit ground zero, where the memorial

plaza now opens to everyone on the


anniversary.
Around the country, the date was
marked with what has become a tradition
of lowered flags, wreath-laying, belltolling and, in New York, reading the
names of the nearly 3,000 people killed
in the terror strikes at the World Trade
Center, the Pentagon and a field near
Shanksville, Pennsylvania. One woman
at ground zero collapsed during the ceremony, apparently overcome by grief;
bystanders helped her to her feet.
Family members praised first responders, thanked the armed forces and
prayed for unity and security. They also
sent personal messages to their lost loved
ones.
You are the reason that I wear this
uniform and stand here today, Air Force
Technical Sgt. Sparkle Thompson said of
her uncle, Louie Anthony Williams.
In Washington, President Barack

Obama and first lady Michelle Obama


stepped out of the White House for a
moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., when the
first of four hijacked planes hit on Sept.

president told troops at Fort Meade in
Maryland that he hoped Sept. 11 would
inspire thoughts of what binds the country together, while Vice President Joe
Biden praised New Yorkers resilience in
remarks to bikers and police officers taking part in a 9/11 memorial motorcycle

Woman gets treatment for laser incident

A San Mateo woman who pleaded no contest in June to a

Tao will receive regular psychiatric treatment, according to
prosectors.
She must take medication, report to a probation officer and
cannot possess weapons or lasers, according to prosecutors.
The laser struck the planes co-pilot in the eye, causing him
to see spots for a period of time, prosecutors said.
Police tracked the laser to the 700 block of Delaware Street
in San Mateo, where they contacted Tao.
Prosecutors said Tao admitted to using the laser, which was

At least 107 dead


in crane collapse
at Mecca mosque
By Abdullah Al-Shihri
and Adam Schreck
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia A towering construction crane toppled over on Friday during
a violent rainstorm in the Saudi city of Mecca,
Islams holiest site, crashing into the Grand
Mosque and killing at least 107 people ahead
of the start of the annual hajj pilgrimage later
this month.
Images posted by social media users
showed a grisly scene, with police and
onlookers attending to numerous bodies lying
amid pools of blood on the polished mosque
floors.
Saudi Arabias civil defense authority provided a series of rising casualty numbers on
its official Twitter account as ambulances
whisked the wounded to area hospitals. As of
early Saturday, it said those injured in the disaster numbered 238.
A photo released by the authority showed
police and workers in hardhats inspecting a
pile of collapsed concrete slabs inside a part
of the sprawling, ornately decorated mosque.
Another showed the base of the toppled red-

and-white crane tilted upward at a sharp


angle.
Images aired on Saudi state television
showed the cranes metal boom smashed
through what appeared to be the roof of the
mosque.
Ahmed bin Mohammed al-Mansouri, the
spokesman for the presidency of the Mecca
and Medina mosque affairs, said in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press
Agency that the accident happened late Friday
afternoon during a severe storm carrying
strong winds and heavy rain.
Authorities did not provide details on the
victims nationalities, but it was likely that the
tragedy will touch several countries.
The Grand Mosque and the cube-shaped
Kaaba within it draw Muslims of all types
from around the world throughout the year,
though numbers increase significantly in the
run-up to the hajj. The mosque is Islams holiest site to which Muslims face in daily prayers
and a central site among the hajj rituals.
Performing the pilgrimage once during
ones lifetime is a duty for all able-bodied
adult Muslims. This years pilgrimage is
expected to start around Sept. 22.

RREUTERS

An aerial view shows Muslim worshippers praying at the Grand mosque surrounded by
construction cranes, in the holy city of Mecca.
Al-Mansouri said the crane, which was
being used in construction work at the
mosque, struck a circular area around the
Kaaba and a nearby walkway.
Pan-satellite Al-Jazeera Television broadcast footage from inside the mosque compound said to be from the aftermath of the
accident, showing the floor strewn with rubble and what appear to be pools of blood.

Another video, on a Twitter posting, captured the apparent moment of the red-andwhite cranes collapse during a heavy rainstorm, with a loud boom, screams and confusion.
The governor of the Mecca region, Prince
Khalid al-Faisal, quickly called for the formation of a committee to investigate the cause of
the accident.

House GOP goes on record


against Iran nuclear deal
By Deb Riechmann
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON The Republican-led


House cast largely symbolic votes on Friday
against the Iran nuclear deal and sought to
restrict President Barack Obamas authority
to lift sanctions against Tehran, one day after
the Senate ensured that the administration can
implement the accord without congressional
interference.
After three hours of hot-tempered debate,
the House voted 269 to 162 to reject the deal;
25 Democrats broke with Obama to register
their disapproval.
The fate of the agreement on Capitol Hill,
however, was sealed on Thursday when
Senate Democrats voted to uphold the accord
with Iran, overcoming heavy GOP opposition
to hand Obama a victory on his top foreign
policy priority. The Senate action guaranteed
that any legislation disapproving of the
accord will never reach Obamas desk.
Obama marked the end of House votes with
a statement saying it is time to turn the page.
Now, we must turn to the critical work of
implementing and verifying this deal so that
Iran cannot pursue a nuclear weapon, the
president said in a statement. In doing so,
well write the latest chapter of American
leadership in the pursuit of a safer, more
hopeful world.
During the debate, Democrats argued that
the agreement would stabilize the Mideast,
stop Iran from rushing to develop a nuclear
bomb and offer a chance to end the standoff
with Iran diplomatically, while retaining a
U.S. threat of military action. They claimed
House Republicans used their opposition to
the nuclear deal to take a partisan shot at the
president.
Republicans countered that the agreements
inspection regime against Iran, a state spon-

sor of terrorism, is weak


and repeatedly recalled
how Islamic extremists
attacked America on Sept.
11, 2001. They said the
deal will allow Iran to
eventually possess a
nuclear weapon and that
the billions it will receive
John Boehner through sanctions relief
will end up in the hands of
terrorist groups that Tehran supports.
This deal is far worse than anything I
could have imagined, said House Speaker
John Boehner, R-Ohio. This is such a bad
deal, the ayatollah wont even have to cheat
to be steps away from a nuclear weapon.
Boehner said that it does not have a rigorous enough inspection regime, will allow Iran
to keep thousands of centrifuges spinning and
will leave the nation with a chance to become
a nuclear-armed state in about a decade. He
said all options remain on the table for the
Republicans to stop the agreement, including
a possible lawsuit.
Never in our history has something with
so many consequences for our national security been rammed through with such little
support, Boehner said. Today is Sept. 11 ...
Our fight to stop this bad deal is just beginning. We will not let the American people
down.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, DCalif., said that if the Iranians cheat, inspectors using advanced technology will know it.
She noted that Iran is already on the threshold
of being a nuclear-armed state and that the
agreement delays this from becoming a reality for at least a decade.
We mustnt judge agreements for what
they dont do. ... Today we will not be just
making history ... we will be making progress
for the peace in the world, Pelosi said.

Russia calls on other nations to help arm Syria


By Nataliya Vasilyeva
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MOSCOW Russian Foreign


Minister Sergey Lavrov on Friday
called on world powers to help
arm the Syrian army, describing it
as the most efficient force against
the Islamic State group.
The U.S. and NATO have raised
concerns over Russias military
buildup in Syria since they see
President Bashar Assad as the
cause of the Syrian crisis, which
has claimed more than 250,000
lives over four years. Moscow,
meanwhile, has sought to cast
arms supplies to Assads government as part of international
efforts to combat Islamic State
militants.
The increased Russian activity
in Syria reflects Moscows deep
concerns that its longtime ally is
on the brink of collapse, as well as
hopes by President Vladimir Putin
that a common battle against
Islamic State extremists can
improve Russias ties with the
West, which strained over
Ukraine.
Lavrov said in Moscow on
Friday that Russia would continue
to supply Assad with weapons and
called on other countries to help
the Syrian government and its
ground troops.
You cannot defeat Islamic State
with air strikes only, Lavrov said.
Its necessary to cooperate with
ground troops and the Syrian army
is the most efficient and powerful
ground force to fight the IS.
Lavrov insisted that by sending
weapons to Syria, Russia is not
propping up Assad but is contributing to defeating Islamic State
fighters.

Obama warns Russia against helping Syrian president


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON President
Barack Obama warned Russia
Friday against doubling down on its
support for Syrian President Bashar
Assad, casting a recent buildup of
Russian military equipment and
personnel in Syria as an effort to
prop up the embattled leader.
The strategy theyre pursuing
right now of doubling down on
Assad is a mistake, Obama said
during a town hall with U.S. mili-

tary personnel.
Russia denies
its trying to
bolster Assad
and
instead
says
its
increased military activity is
part of the
international
Barack Obama effort to defeat
the
Islamic
State, the terror group that has
wreaked havoc in both Syria and

Iraq. Earlier Friday, Russian


Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov
called on world powers to join his
country in that pursuit, arguing that
Syrias army is the most efficient
force to fight the extremist network.
You cannot defeat Islamic State
with air strikes only, Lavrov said, a
dig at Obamas strategy. Its necessary to cooperate with ground
troops and the Syrian army is the
most efficient and powerful ground
force to fight the IS.

Migrant quota rebuffed


by four European nations
By George Jahn and Karel Janicek
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

VIENNA At least four countries Friday firmly rejected a


European Union plan to impose refugee quotas to ease a worsening migrant crisis that Germanys foreign minister said was
probably the biggest challenge in the history of the 28-nation
bloc.
Hungary, which along with the Czech Republic, Slovakia and
Poland said it would not support the proposal, threatened
instead to crack down on the thousands of people streaming
across its borders daily as they flee war and persecution.
The stance by those Central European countries reflected a
hardening front against distributing at least some of the refugees
among them and was a stinging rebuff to German Foreign
Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who traveled to Prague to try
to persuade them to reconsider.
While the Czechs, Slovaks and Poles have been relatively
unaffected by the influx, Hungary has faced growing criticism
about its stance toward the asylum seekers. Other EU leaders
and human rights groups accuse the government of gross mismanagement or serious negligence in housing, feeding and processing the migrants traveling from the Balkans and through
Hungary to Western Europe.
Peter Bouckaert of Human Rights Watch asserted Hungary
was keeping migrants and refugees in pens like animals, out in
the sun without food and water.
A video that the rights group said was from inside a holding
facility at the border town of Roszke showed metal fences surrounding clusters of tents and dividing migrants into groups.
Guards were depicted throwing food into the air for desperate
people to grab.
Erno Simon, a spokesman in Hungary for the U.N. refugee
agency, said the housing situation in Roszke with nighttime
temperatures falling to near freezing is really very, very alarming.
Unfazed, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban threatened
an even harder line, saying his country intended to catch, convict and imprison people who continue to penetrate its new border barriers as part of get-tough border security measures scheduled to begin Tuesday.
If they dont cross into Hungary territory legally, we will consider it a crime, Orban said, saying the illegal immigrants had
no one to blame but themselves for any hardships suffered.

continue to supply it to the Syrian
government in order to ensure its
proper combat readiness in its
fight against terrorism.
Russia has been a longtime
backer of Syria, and it has supported Assad throughout the civil
war by shielding him from U.N.
sanctions
and
providing
weapons.
Putin is expected to focus on the
situation in Syria when he addresses the U.N. General Assembly at
the end of the month, and some
analysts believe that Russia wants
to have its military force in Syria
ready for action by the time he
speaks.
Ukrainian
President
Petro
Poroshenko on Friday used the
Russian military buildup in Syria
to lash out at the countrys archenemy, blaming the influx of
refugees into Europe on Moscows
support for Assad.
Today the so-called little green
men are landing in Syria, instigating an increase in violence in the
Middle East, and provoking a further increase in the number of
refugees going to the EU,
Poroshenko said at an international conference in Kiev. Little green
men was the term widely applied
to Russian forces in unmarked uniforms who overtook Ukraines
Crimean Peninsula before its
annexation by Russia in March
2014.
Russian

conceal the presence of its servicemen who are involved in a military-technical cooperation with a
legitimate government.

NEW YORK Major stock indexes


shook off an early stumble to finish with
slight gains on Friday as traders turned
their attention to a key meeting of the

It was a quiet end to another turbulent
week. Thanks largely to a big jump on
Tuesday, the market finished with a 2
percent gain for the week, recouping a
portion of the steep losses from the
week before.
The major indexes headed lower at
the opening of trading on Friday, as
falling oil prices pulled oil and gas companies down.
The economic news wasnt encouraging, either. A reading on consumer confidence this month sank to its lowest

Wall Street is divided over whether
the Fed will raise its benchmark lending
rate next week for the first time in nine

Q&A: What to expect from


the Fed on interest rates
By Steve Rothwell
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK This months Federal


Reserve policy meeting could signal the
end of an era.
Policymakers may decide to raise
interest rates for the first time since the
Great Recession, marking the end of an
era of ultra-low rates that has defined
financial markets for almost seven years.
Although signs of slowing global economic growth have decreased the likelihood of a September rate increase, many
economists still expect policymakers to
take action at least once this year as the
labor market improves. The Fed has kept
its benchmark rate at close to zero since
late 2008 to help revive the economy.
As well as helping the economy, those
low rates have been great for financial
markets.
The Standard & Poors 500 index has
almost tripled since bottoming in March
2009, as corporate profits have surged.
Bond prices have also climbed, pushing
down yields. In turn, that has boosted
demand for other dividend-rich securities, such as high-yield bonds and real
estate investment trusts.
But if interest rates start rising, will
that automatically reverse the stock mar-

kets momentum?
Jim McDonald, chief investment
strategist at asset manager Northern
Trust, explains what he expects to happen with interest rates, how that will
impact financial markets, and what
investors should, or shouldnt do.
Fed policymakers will meet Sept. 16
and 17.
Q: Do you expect an interest rate
increase this year?
A: We do expect a rate increase this
year. The Fed is itching to start to get off
zero interest rates, so they will move this
year.
They are nervous that they dont have
any dry powder to deal with an increase
in financial markets or economic volatility. They cant really cut rates any more
and the market would respond negatively to (more) quantitative easing. They
want to get rates up, so that in the future,
if they want to cut rates, they have that
option.
Q: How high could interest rates
go?
A: Over the next year, it could be two
interest rate hikes. So, they would get up
to 50 basis points (0.5 percent) and then
they have to hang out. Because along
with the Bank of England they will be
the only central bank that is raising rates.

The economy is just not that strong.


Q: What should investors do in
response to higher rates?
A: There is absolutely no need for
panic around the Fed starting to raise
rates. Some people are concerned about
it, but this an extremely studied event
and the market is rarely disrupted by an
event that is over analyzed. And this has
been over analyzed.
The recent volatility in the market has
been tied to China. And, secondarily its
been tied to people saying jeez, you
know what? The major central banks
really dont have a lot of ammo if we do
get into a significant downturn. Its that
aspect of monetary policy that has been
of concern. Its not worries about a 25
basis point increase, which, in the scope
of everything else going on, is immaterial.
Q: So investors shouldnt overreact?
A: Its a lets ride this out situation
because raising interest rates is generally tied to the economy improving, and
the economy is going to have to be doing
OK for the Fed to raise rates. The history of the stock market is that it does fine
when the Fed starts to raise rates,
because the Fed taking action is corroboration that the economy is strong.

nomic news will come out over the


weekend. Joshua Mahony, market analyst at IG in London, said that could
lead to a turbulent start to trading next
week.
The weekend release of Chinese
retail sales, industrial production and
fixed asset investment numbers means
that Monday is likely to start with a
bang, Mahony said.
Back in the U.S., Kroger gained 5
percent after reporting earnings that
beat analysts estimates. The grocery
store chains stock rose $1.89 to $37.29.
Prices for U.S. government bonds
rose, pushing the yield on the 10-year
Treasury note down to 2.19 percent
from 2.23 percent late Thursday.
In the commodity markets, precious
and industrial metals finished mostly
lower. Gold dropped $6 to settle at
$1,103.30 an ounce, and silver sank 14
cents to $14.50 an ounce. Copper settled
unchanged from the day before at $2.45
a pound.
The price of oil fell on concerns that
the current glut of oil would persist well
into next year.

Business briefs
U.S. small businesses feel
mixed impact from Chinas economy
NEW YORK Chinas economic problems have been a
windfall for some U.S. small businesses and pose a threat
to others.
A nearly 40 percent plunge in the Shanghai stock market
since mid-June, a response to the countrys weakening economy, has sent Chinese investors looking for safer investments.
Some are focusing on U.S. real estate, including the condos
Peggy Fuccis real estate brokerage sells in Miami. Shes sold
six condos to Chinese buyers in the past month, twice what
shes typically sold in that amount of time.
Its the insecurity of continuing to lose your (stock market)
investment, says Fucci, CEO of OneWorld Properties.
Chinese buyers, who pay an average $1.2 million for the
condos in a downtown Miami development where shes sold
some homes, want them as an investment rather than a place
to live, she says. Fucci is heading to China this weekend on a
sales trip, optimistic that shell find more buyers.
Brokers in other cities where high-end real estate is sold also
report more interest from Chinese buyers, especially in the last
month. But U.S. small businesses overall may feel little impact
from the weakness in Chinas economy, says Ravi Madhavan,
a professor at the University of Pittsburghs Katz Graduate
School of Business who specializes in international business.
Unlike big industrial companies, small businesses tend to
import from China rather than export, so most are not likely to
see their business affected, Madhavan says. Some may, however, see some better prices for the Chinese goods they buy
following the devaluation of the countrys currency, the yuan,
last month. But others may see the prices they pay increase
because labor costs are rising in China. The Chinese government wants to keep economic growth this year close to 7 percent. That is down slightly from the past few years, but half the
14.2 percent in 2007.
A weaker economy has already hurt some U.S. companies.
Sales of Harley-Davidson motorcycles are plunging at Motor
Export Experts.

Automakers commit to
putting automatic brakes in all cars
WASHINGTON The government has received commitments from ten automakers to include automatic emergency
braking in all new cars. Its a step safety advocates say could
significantly reduce traffic deaths and injuries.
Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced the commitments Friday. Foxx says making the technology widely
available is part of a new era in vehicle safety, in which the
focus is on preventing crashes rather than protecting occupants
from their effects.
The announcement didnt specify a timetable for implementing the change. The automakers are Audi, BMW, Ford,
General Motors, Mazda, Mercedes Benz, Tesla, Toyota,
Volkswagen and Volvo.
The technology is already available in some car models, but
mostly as an option in higher-priced vehicles. Experts say the
systems could prevent or mitigate an estimated 80 percent of
rear-end collisions.

Sacred Heart Prep football coach Pete


Lavorato said his biggest concern was his
defense going into Fridays home opener
against Riordan.
Turns out those fears were warranted.
Riordan scored on six consecutive drives to
rout the Gators 48-21.
The loss was the rst in 15 games for
SHP, which last tasted defeat in the 2013
Small School State Championship Game
against Corona Del Mar.
We just couldnt seem to stop them,
Lavorato said.
Riordan running back Raymone Sanders
rushed for a game-high 140 yards and two
touchdowns on just 13 carries. As a team,
the Crusaders rushed for 278 yards and
racked up a total of 428 yards of offense.
We have playmakers all over the place,
said Kevin Fordon, Riordans rst-year
coach who took over a program that went 19 last season.
[Friday] we wanted to send a message.
The game was a defensive battle early as
Riordan punted on its rst possession. The
Crusaders defense forced a fourth down on
SHPs rst drive and caught a break when
the snap rolled through the punters leg and
the ball was downed at the SHP 20.
But the Gators defense stood tall and
ended up recovering a Riordan fumble at the
2.
That was the last big mistake the
Crusaders made. After Riordan forced the
Gators to punt on their next possession, the
Crusaders offense got in gear. They proceeded to drive 93 yards on ve plays, capping
it with a 6-yard scoring run from Jason
Greene. A 2-point conversion gave the
Crusaders an 8-0 lead.
SHP was forced to punt again and again
Riordan responded with a touchdown. This
time, an 87-yard drive was capped by a 16yard scoring run from Quarterback Jacky
Luavasa with 3:29 to play in the rst half.
The SHP offense nally found its groove
on its next possession and marched 73

What a weapon has emerged for the South


City Warriors in junior Kolson Pua.
The two-way standout set the tone with a
dominant performance Friday in the
Warriors 35-8 thrashing of Capuchino at
Carl Reyna Field.
On offense, Pua shined at quarterback,
completing 7-of-10 passes for 113 yards
with a touchdown; he also carried the ball
six times for 33 yards. On defense, he produced another score by strutting a 55-yard
interception return into the end zone. He
also worked some special-teams magic with
a key fake punt, and added another booming
punt later in the game.
Having grown up in the South City football program his father Kolone is the
longtime defensive coordinator Puas virtuosity within the system is a rare find.
Hes been in the program since he was
about 4 years old, South City coach Jay
Oca said. So he knows this offense inside
and out.
South City (2-0) hardly let the Mustangs
touch the ball in the first quarter. By the
time the Warriors took a 21-0 first-quarter
lead, Cap (0-2) had only run four offensive
plays from scrimmage. The Mustangs committed five turnovers in the game three
interceptions and two fumbles including
coughing up the football on each of their
first three possessions.
We have to correct it if we want to win
any games, Capuchino head coach Ben
White said. We came out flat today. And
they came out on fire.
Running back Eric Kamelamela has been
the star force of the South City offense since
joining the team midway through last season. The returning All-Peninsula Athletic
League Ocean Division tailback picked up
right where he left off in last weeks season
opener against James Lick with 166 rushing
yards and three touchdowns.
Kamelamela appeared to be hampered by a
slight limp early in the first quarter Friday
though. He still paced the Warriors in rushing with 83 yards on 14 carries. Pua, how-

Sloppy Woodside still too much for Carlmont


By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The Woodside football improved its


record to 2-0 on the season with a 32-18
victory over Carlmont in Redwood City
Friday night.
While the bottom line is a W or a L,
Woodside coach Justin Andrews would like
to see his team put a complete effort together.
I can pick that (nal score) apart,

Andrews said. Its the second week in a row


we got away with a sloppy win.
Despite mistakes throughout the game,
Andrews and the Woodside fans got to see
glimpses of what the Wildcats can do as a
football team. Every unit offense,
defense and special teams. Quarterback
Scudder Stockwell completed 14 of 24 passes for 216 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Safety Tristan Wegman intercepted two
passes, returning the rst one 12 yards for a
touchdown. The punt coverage team came up

with a partial block of a Carlmont punt and


Woodside punter Christian Granados turned
a bad snap into an 18-yard gain and a rst
down and later boomed a punt 54 yards.
We denitely showed ashes, Andrews
said. (The question is) can we get it more
consistently?
Carlmont, to its credit, did not simply
roll over. In the second half especially, the
Scots showed they can run the ball with
some authority. They controlled the clock
in the third and fourth quarters, embarking

on a pair of long drives, but both came up


empty.
The Scots avoided the second-half shutout
when Shanil Patel went over left tackle for a
2-yard score late in the fourth quarter.
Carlmont, they came out and competed
really well, Andrews said, who, while not
enjoying watching Carlmont hammer the
ball on the ground, was still satised with
the way his defense played.

Aragon defense pitches another shutout


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Aragon showcased some dangerous offensive


balance in its home opener. But it was a standout performance on defense and special teams
that stole the show.
The Dons (2-0) recorded their second straight
shutout to start the year, trouncing El Camino
55-0 Friday under the lights at Aragon.
Donaven Robinson opened the game with a 49yard kickoff return to give Aragon premium field
position. Robinsons heroics would be a recurring theme throughout.
The first-year varsity sophomore had two big
first-half returns and a second-quarter interception, all of which set up touchdowns. The
Aragon offense did the rest, gaining 434 total
yards while touting equal contributions from
both its air and ground attack while eight different Dons scored in the game.
Aragon quarterback Tanner Nguyen was 10of-17 passing for 188 yards and a touchdown.
Senior tailback V.A. Wilson totaled 100 rushing yards and a touchdown on 12 carries.
And while Robinson got two carries late in
the second half after Aragon head coach Steve
Sell rotated out his starting lineup, the 16th
year coach said Robinson is a natural wide
receiver; there simply is too much experienced
depth at present to get him many offensive
reps.
He's a super unselfish kid, Sell said. And
right now, hes our best option at free safety.
It's Robinsons first year ever playing free
safety, and hes taking to it like a seasoned vet.
One of six sophomores currently starting for
Aragon though, Robinson admitted he felt the
varsity pressure upon joining the team this season.
At first I was scared, but now I just think
about making plays, Robinson said.
Robinson has plenty of experience as a kick
returner though. Hes done that his entire life,
growing up playing Pop Warner football with
the Redwood City 49ers. He said his all-time

The Aragon defense posted its second straight shutout with a 55-0 win over El Camino.
best return with the 49ers was an 89-yard touchdown.
Its quite a weapon, Sell said.
While he didnt get into the end zone Friday,
he ignited a Dons offense that had no trouble
punching it in.
Thanks to Robinsons initial return, Aragon
started its first drive from the El Camino 33-yard
line. Then on the first play from scrimmage,
another sophomore, Gabe Campos, took an
inside trap 33 yards around the left side for a
touchdown score, staking the Dons to a 7-0
lead.
Aragons second running play also produced a
score. The Dons regained possession, after an
El Camino punt, at their own 30-yard line.
Nguyen then exacted two pass completions of
42 and 25 yards respectively, setting the stage
for V.A. Wilsons 3-yard touchdown blast to
give the Dons a 14-0 lead.
The Dons upped their lead in the second quar-

ter, again capitalizing on premium field position. Robinson again picked up big yards with
a 39-yard punt return. Three plays later, Devin
Grant took a draw inside tackle for a 5-yard score
to give Aragon a 21-0 advantage.
Aragon took the ball right back when
Robinson intercepted a Hei Nay Keler pass at
the Aragon 45-yard line. Seven plays later,
Wilson fought for an 8-yard touchdown run,
reaching across the goal line with full extension to give the Dons a 28-0 lead, which they
took into halftime.
El Camino was able to move the ball incrementally early in the first half as quarterback
Keler completed 5 of his first 8 passes. But the
Aragon defense went on lockdown from there,
as the only one of Kelers final 11 passes to get
caught was Robinsons interception.
Still, the quarterback was one the mark with
many of his throws, only to have them broken
up by the swarming Aragon defense.

Hes going to be fine, El Camino head


coach Eric Jacobson said. Were not looking
for a quarterback. Were going to live and die
with Keler.
El Camino went three-and-out on each of its
first three possessions of the second half. Its
final two possession ended on fumbles as the
Colts committed three turnovers on the night.
I thought our effort was there, but we got beat
by a really good team, Jacobson said. Theyre
in the Bay and were in the Lake for a reason.
The game ended on a comedy of errors for the
Colts offense. Their final two plays from
scrimmage resulted in fumble returns for touchdowns by the Aragon defense. Junior linebacker
Lihati Unga scooped up the first one and sprinted 44 yards for the score with three minutes
remaining in regulation. On the games final
play, junior defensive end Enzo Fuenzalida
fought for a loose ball and rumbled 19 yards for
the score.
Theres nothing comic about Aragons new
quarterback though. Nguyen transferred from
Cedar Ridge-Texas, only to sit behind starting
quarterback Billy Mason as a junior all last year.
But the 6-4 left hander is sharply making up for
lost time.
It was a good learning experience for me
(last year) because the offense was all new,
Nguyen said.
The senior brings a conventional fluidity to
the offense with a smooth tempo and composure in the pocket. One of his most impressive
throws of the night came midway through the
third quarter on a 9-yard scoring pass to senior
speedster Devin Grant.
Grant ran a timing pattern into tight 1-on-1
coverage in the corner of the end zone. El
Camino cornerback C.J. Bautista had been
breaking up passes all night, so Nguyen aimed
for the opposite sideline to find Grant, who outleaped a defender to wrestle an impressive
touchdown grab.
I just saw the mismatch on the corner,
Nguyen said. Devin is such a great player, so I
knew he would bring it down.

ALAMEDA The Oakland Raiders signed


troubled pass rusher Aldon Smith to a contract
Friday, five weeks after he was released by San
Francisco.
The 49ers cut ties with Smith on Aug. 7, a day
after his fifth arrest since being drafted by the
team in 2011. Smith was arrested in Santa Clara
on charges of drunken driving, hit and run and
vandalism.
The Santa Clara District Attorneys office said
that Smith was charged
Friday with three misdemeanors relating to his latest arrest. The charges are
driving under the influence
with a prior offense, hit and
run with property damage
and vandalism. Smith will
be arraigned on Oct. 6.
We are confident that
Aldon Smith the Raiders provide an
environment where Aldon
can thrive through the support, structure and
leadership within the building, general manager Reggie McKenzie said in a statement.
Smith was suspended for the first nine games
last season for violating the NFLs substanceabuse and personal-conduct policies. The league
says he is currently eligible to play despite his
latest arrest. But the NFL is still looking into
that matter.
Smith is one of the most accomplished pass
rushers when available. He had 33 1/2 sacks his
first two seasons with the 49ers.
The Raiders needed an upgrade for their pass
rush after recording a franchise-low 22 sacks
last season.
Smith practiced on Friday in his familiar No.

he would be able to play in the season opener
Sunday against Cincinnati.

Raiders remain quiet ahead of opener


By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND Justin Tuck has been around


too long to make the same mistake twice.
After his preseason optimism led to just
three wins his first season in Oakland, Tuck
is taking a more circumspect view heading
into year two with the Raiders.
While others will talk about the energy
boost from the new coaching staff, the
upgrades on the front seven of the defense
and the young building block pieces in
place on the Raiders, Tuck wants to see
results on the field before he starts crowing.
I can sit here and talk about what I
think, Tuck said. But until we actually go
out there and do it on Sundays and back this
up, then it doesnt matter.
The Raiders get their first chance when
they open the season at home Sunday
against the Cincinnati Bengals.
It wasnt long ago the Bengals were mired
at the bottom of the league like the Raiders
are, posting just one winning season in an
18-year span. But fortunes have changed of
late in Cincinnati as the team has made a
franchise-record four straight playoff
berths.
Four straight one-and-done trips to the
postseason have turned that success from a
cause for celebration into questions about

whether quarterback Andy Dalton and coach


Marvin Lewis are capable of leading the
team to the next step.
Dalton said the team believes it can win
the Super Bowl even though the franchise
hasnt won a single playoff game since the
1990 season.
The good thing is that the expectations
for this team have changed, based on what
weve accomplished, he said. To make it
to the playoffs four years in a row is not an
easy thing to do. But thats obviously the
expectation of this city, and the expectation of this organization.
Here are some things to watch when the
Bengals visit the Raiders:

Hues homecoming
The Raiders closest brush with success
the past 12 years came in 2011, when they
finished 8-8 in a three-way tie for first in the
AFC West. They missed out on the playoffs
on a tiebreaker when they lost the season
finale at home and coach Hue Jackson was
then fired after his only season. Jackson
makes his return to Oakland as Cincinnatis
offensive coordinator. Jackson said the
sting of his firing lasted for a year.
The feeling is different, he said. Its
not as raw in my emotions as it was back
then.

Sacks for Mack


After setting a franchise low with 22
sacks last season, one of the first things
Jack Del Rios new coaching staff did was
move Khalil Mack from linebacker to defensive end. With fewer coverage responsibilities and more refined pass-rushing moves,
Mack should significantly increase his sack
total of four as a rookie.
He has tremendous explosiveness,
Lewis said. Hes comparable to guys who
have played in that spot like Derrick
Thomas and guys like that who are tremendous football player, not just rushers, but
football players.

0-for-Oakland
The Bengals have never won a game in
Oakland, losing their 10 previous trips,
including a playoff game in 1975. In the
last meeting at the Coliseum, the Raiders
scored 10 points in the final 33 seconds to
win 20-17. With the Raiders looking to
move back to Los Angeles, this could be
Cincinnatis final chance at a win in
Oakland.
The last time we went out there, we kind
of gave the game away at the end, tackle
Andrew Whitworth said. Hopefully this
time we can take care of business.

Rangers Lewis nearly perfect against As


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ARLINGTON, Texas Oaklands Danny


Valencia tipped his batting helmet toward
Colby Lewis from second base after breaking
up the Texas right-handers perfect game with
a leadoff double in the eighth inning.
When you are witnessing great things happening, theres a mutual respect, Valencia
said. He was very competitive tonight.

Lewis settled for a two-hitter, and the most


dominant performance at home by a Rangers
righty since Nolan Ryans record seventh nohitter in 1991, leading Texas to a 4-0 victory
over the Athletics on Friday night.
The 36-year-old simply jogged to his spot
for defensive positioning after Valencias hit
down the left-field line. And when Lewis
secured the shutout, he turned straight-faced to
catcher Chris Gimenez for a quick hug. No big

deal.
I dont know, like I guess on any given
night, but I dont look at myself like having
no-hitter or perfect game stuff, said Lewis
(15-8), who beat his previous career high in
wins from 2011, the last of two straight seasons that the Rangers went to the World
Series.

level of urgency knowing one of these
teams will open the season with back-toback losses.
Theres so much room for improvement, Stanford quarterback Kevin Hogan

Local roundup
Football
Half Moon Bay 57, Prospect 0
The Cougars (2-0) saw their defense outdo
their 42-7 win over Monterey of a week ago
with a shutout performance at Prospect (01). Junior defensive lineman Nick Dempsey
recovered a fumble in the end zone for a
touchdown and defensive back Chase
Hoffman added a 32-yard interception return
for a score to highlight the effort, both in
the second half. Half Moon Bay's offense
erupted in the first half behind the effort of
quarterback Gavin Tomberlin. The sophomore threw for a pair of touchdowns, including a 71-yard strike to Pablo Gutierrez.

Sequoia 52, Harbor 3


The Cherokees (1-1) rolled in their home
opener, blasting Harbor (0-2) for their first
win of the year. Sequoia scored 35 points in
the first half. Juniors Alberto Vasquez and
Sean Shufelt rushed for two touchdowns
apiece. Quarterback Nick DeMarco threw for
one touchdown and caught another on a 12yard option pass from sophomore Patrick
Lopiparo. Junior kicker Thomas Kervick
added a 35-yard field goal in the second half.

Mills 34, Gunn 7


The Vikings (1-1) earned their first victory since Sept. 26, 2014 with a strong showing at Gunn. Junior running back David
Tongalava rushed for two touchdowns, inlcluding a 1-yard score to get Mills on the
board in the first quarter. He added a 15-yard
score in the second half.
Senior quarterback Jerry Ibanez ran for a
10-yard touchdown to give the Vikings a
14-0 lead by the end of the first quarter.
Then senior Domenico Levin blocked a punt
deep in Gun territory to set up a 6-yard pass
from Ibanez to junior Ryan Beglitsoff.
Sophomore Andrew Killigrew added a 20yard scoring run in the second half.

said. Everyone would tell you we could


have done so many things differently, so
many things better. Thats the mindset we
need. People need to recognize the need for
improvement and growth. It was a good lesson for week one.
It was an all-around disappointing performance for the Cardinal (0-1) in the 16-6
loss at Northwestern. After a promising
opening drive for a field goal, the offense
was held to three points and 176 yards the
rest of the way in Stanfords lowest-scoring
game since 2007.
The defense had three costly offside

penalties and allowed a 42-yard touchdown


run by freshman quarterback Clayton
Thorson.
We did just about everything we could in
a first game to help yourself lose a game,
coach David Shaw said.
It was a similar opener for the Knights,
who blew a 14-3 halftime lead and lost 1514 to Florida International to have a 10game home winning streak snapped. UCF
was held scoreless in the second half and
had a 47-yard field goal blocked in the final
seconds.
It opened our eyes, H-back Cedric

Thompson said. Sometimes you may get a


little too confident, and the loss really let
us know where were at, and what we have to
do to get better. Whenever you lose a game,
you obviously dont go into it expecting to
lose, so it was just very eye-opening for
us.
The biggest issue for the Knights was a
lack of a run game. They rushed for just 46
yards on 30 carries their lowest total
since a season-opening loss to Penn State
last season.
You cant live like that, coach George
OLeary said.

Giants pound Padres, pick up game on Dodgers


By Rick Eymer
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Jake Peavy was surprised to learn he beat his former team for
the first time. He had thought he earned one
last season.
I guess that was a nodecision, he said. You
know, I enjoy competing. I know a lot of people in that dugout. Other
than that, its just another game.

spirals and drop-dead accuracy throughout for
one of the first great performances of his twoyear varsity career.
We knew he had it, Oca said. Hes been
working this whole summer. Hes really
good at distributing the ball to other people,
which is good. We have a lot of weapons.
The Warriors showed off their weapons, utilizing four different players to score their five
touchdowns. Kamelamela had two scores,
including a 3-yard blast through the middle to
cap a 13-play, 67-yard opening drive.
Then Pua produced another quick score on
the second play of the ensuing Cap drive, nab-

The Giants, who left 10 men on base,
picked up ground on the Los Angeles
Dodgers for the first time since Aug. 21. The
first-place Dodgers, who lost 12-4 to
Arizona, are 7 1-2 games in front in the NL
West.
We know the task at hand, Peavy said.
Were just trying to to get within striking
distance and make this thing interesting.
Justin Upton homered for the Padres, who
have lost six of their last eight.
Peavy (6-6) did not walk a batter and
struck out two. He retired 17 straight after
Uptons second-inning homer gave the
Padres the early lead.
He was good, Padres manager Pat
Murphy said. Lets face it, hes a veteran, a
former Cy Young Award winner and he
pitched his butt off. He made pitches and
when we did hit it hard, they caught it.
Andrew Cashner (5-15) gave up five runs
and nine hits over 4 2-3 innings. He walked
five and struck out seven on his 29th birthday.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy visited the


mound to talk with his son, Brett Bochy,
who happened to be pitching the ninth
inning. The younger Bochy had given up a
hit and then hit a batter after getting the
first two outs.
That was emotional for me, the manager said. I was caught up and Im not going
to lie. I was influenced by the crowd.
Allowing his son one more hitter, Brett
Bochy struck out Jedd Gyorko to end the
game as the crowd chanted Bo-chy, Bochy, throughout the inning.

The Diamondbacks won for the third time in


four games, with four pitchers combining to
hold the Dodgers to four hits.
The last of the four hits was a grand slam
by Justin Ruggiano in the top of the ninth
inning with two outs.
Castillos towering drive far over the wall
in left-center gave Arizona 3-0 lead, and
Chris Owings triple drove in Phil Gosselin
with the fourth run of the inning off Dodgers
starter Alex Wood.
The Diamondbacks added six runs in the

second. Goldschmidt made it 6-0 with a tworun shot down the left-field line. He continues to punish Dodgers pitching, hitting.336 (91 for 271) with 18 home runs
and 59 RBIs in 70 career games against Los
Angeles.
Wood (10-10) lasted only 1 2-3 innings,
allowing six earned runs and eight hits in
his shortest outing since coming to the
Dodgers in a trade on July 30.
The other runs in the sixth came on a tworun double by Yasmany Tomas off reliever

Pedro Baez and Ahmeds two-run homer.


Arizona sent nine batters to the plate in
each the first two innings.
Every Arizona position player had at least
one hit through the first two innings, and
rookie Peter OBrien collected his first
major league hit in the sixth, an RBI single.
Starter Robbie Ray (4-11) shut out the
Dodgers for five innings for his first win
since July 7 and first career win at home,
ending a streak of 10 straight starts overall
without a victory.

bing an interception and directing traffic up


the right sideline to ramble for a 55-yard
score.
I just saw the wide receivers go deep, so I
went deep too, Pua said. I saw the deepest
receiver and I just went to him, watched the
quarterback all the way and came up with
pick.
South City got the ball back immediately
on a fumble recovery on the ensuing kickoff.
Taking over at the Cap 35-yard line, the
Warriors needed just five plays for
Kamelamela to take a reverse option play
around the left side for a 44-yard touchdown,
giving South City a 21-0 lead.
In the second quarter, Pua showed off the air
attack with a 10-play, 74-yard drive. He only
threw two passes on the drive, but one was a
45-yard strike to Kamelamela up the right
sideline to advance the ball into Cap territory.
Then the savvy QB hit senior David Miller for

a 13-yard touchdown reception to up the lead


to 28-0.
South Citys notorious Big Blue defense
put on an exhibition on Caps following possession.
After Cap soldiered for it s first two first
downs of the game on back-to-back plays, the
Warriors shut it down with sacks on consecutive plays. Tavai Tuitasi drilled Cap quarterback Joe Gutierrez for a 9-yard loss. Then senior tackle Javier Toca got through for another
9-yard sack. Then on third-and-28, Gutierrez
got pursued by heavy pressure from Miller and
Kalvin Pua and misfired for an interception to
south City junior free safety Juan Borrero.
When you dont have that offensive line
working, its hard for things to get going,
Cap head coach Ben White said. All those
interceptions are not always the quarterbacks
fault.
South City added its final score in the third

quarter on a 3-yard score by fullback Peter


Lopez. The senior had an impressive showing, balancing the Warriors backfield, rushing for 55 yards on eight carries.

WOODSIDE
Continued from page 11
I can live with it.
Woodside got off to a quick start.
The Wildcats took the opening
kickoff and on the rst play from
scrimmage, Stockwell hooked up
with Spencer Gawle for a 51-yard
gain down to the Carlmont 17-yard
line. Five plays later, Marcelous
Chester-Riley went into the end
zone from a yard out to put
Woodside up 7-0.
Carlmont (0-2) appeared to tie
the score when Cutler Pons bulled
his way into the end zone from
three yards out. The ensuing extra
point was blocked and Woodside
still led 7-6.
The Scots took the lead just over
a minute later. Woodside took the
ensuing kickoff and set up shop at
its own 35. On rst down, Scudder
dropped back, rolled to his right as
pressure came from behind and just
before he could get rid of the ball,
a Carlmont defender tracked him
down and stripped Stockwell of the
ball. Michael How scooped it up
and rumbled down to the Woodside
9-yard line. Two plays later, Patel,
lining up as a wildcat quarterback, took the snap and weaved
his way into the end zone fro ve
yards out to put the Scots up 12-7.
The Woodside offense was forced
to punt on its next possession, but
thats when the Wildcats defense
stepped up. On Carlmont rst
play from its own 16, Woodsides
Wegman grabbed a pass thrown
right to him and he ambled into
the end zone from 16 yards out to
put the Wildcats ahead for good,
13-12, with just over a minute to
play in the rst quarter.
After forcing Carlmont to punt
the next time it had the ball, the

Wildcats went to the quick strike


to score. On rst down from his
own 30, Stockwell dropped back
and dumped a simple pass to
Anthony Kastelic in the at.
Kastelic did the rest. He picked
up a couple blocks near the sideline to spring him and Kastelic did
the rest, racing 70 yards into the
end zone to put the Wildcats up 1912.
Wegman intercepted his second
pass of the rst half on Carlmont
next possession, returning it 22
yards down to the Scots 20. Six
plays later, Sione Halaapiapi
blasted into the end zone from a
yard out to put Woodside up 26-12
at halftime.
The third quarter kind of stagnated a little bit. Carlmont kept the
ball for more than ve minutes on
the rst drive of the third quarter,
but moved the ball from its own 28
to the Woodside 40 before turning
the ball over on downs. Woodside
was forced to punt on its rst possession of the third quarter, but the
Wildcats got the ball right back
when they pounced on a Carlmont
fumble at the Scots 22. After gaining a rst down thanks to a pass
interference penalty, Stockwell
hooked up with Cameron Ashmead
for an 11-yard touchdown pass to
put Woodside up 32-12.
Patels score with just over two
minutes to play pulled the Scots
closer, but there would be no miracle nish.
When were clicking, we can be
pretty explosive, Andrews said.
the ceiling is still high. We
havent played nearly as well as we
can.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

A special session addressing the drought


should also include thoughtful and careful
review of environmental policies that even
if well-meaning may be doing more harm
than good, the letter says.
Assemblyman Devon Mathis, a Republican
who represents some of the hardest hit areas
of the state, spearheaded the effort.
It just makes me sad. This is one of the
worst public health epidemics that we have,
this is up and down the state, and we have to
do something about it, he said in an interview before taking the letter into the governors office. We talk about all these problems
about water and we dont really have a solid
plan.
He said while lawmakers have been talking
about the drought for much of the regular session scheduled to wrap up late Friday, little

has been accomplished.


A spokesman for Brown, Gareth Lacy, said
the administration has taken hundreds of coordinated actions to address the drought, and a
sound process is in place to ensure assistance
is distributed properly.
To date, hundreds of millions have been
committed to emergency drought relief, disaster assistance, water conservation and infrastructure projects across California with
much more on the way, Lacy said in an
email. This investment and response is the
product of Republicans and Democrats setting
aside politics and working together, without
any need for a special session.
He cited new rebate programs to replace old
appliances and tear out water-guzzling lawns,
and groundwater legislation to preserve vulnerable basins.

Democratic Assemblyman Luis Alejo, of


Watsonville, said in a statement that the
Legislature must ensure disadvantaged communities that rely on wells have access to safe
drinking water.
Additionally, as forecasters predict strong
El Nino storms to hit California this winter,
we must ensure our communities have flood
controls in place and healthy rivers that can
act as safeguards to the storms, he said.
Republican Sen. Andy Vidak, of Hanford,
also added to the call for a special session.
Brown called special sessions this year to
address a $59 billion transportation infrastructure backlog over the next decade and figure
out a new funding mechanism for Medi-Cal,
the states health insurance program for the
poor, but lawmakers were set to wrap up
Friday without proposals to address either.

The memorial plaza opened in 2011 but was
closed to the public on the anniversary until

Moved by the influx, organizers decided to

year.
Some victims relatives welcome the openness after years when the site was largely offlimits for construction. Its a little more comfortable for people to be here, said Alexandria

Perez, who lost her aunt, Ana Centeno.


But to Erick Jimenez, a brother of 9/11 victim Eliezer Jimenez Jr., every year, its a little

Sleeping With Other


People is refreshing The
myth of the
American Dream

By Lindsey Bahr

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Poor romantic comedies. Even our criticisms of them have grown


stale.
Theyre not as good as they used to be, we moan, yearning for
some purer time when we didnt know the time-tested beats, the
inevitable outcomes, and the dynamics seemed more attuned to
How We Date Now. Even the character types have started to
become one big blur of clichs.
How refreshing, then, that Sleeping With Other People gives
the form a solid adrenaline boost by managing to both operate within the comforting constraints of When Harry Met
Sallys ... can men and women be
friends premise, and still be its
own unique, modern creation.
Writer-director Leslye Headland, as
a follow up to the bawdy girls night
out film Bachelorette, accomplishes this by getting the sex out
of the way first, and then making
it off limits.
Headland knows that the litmus
test is not the theoretical happy
ending, but the characters and
Jake (Jason Sudeikis) and Lainey
(Alison Brie) prove to be some fascinating specimens. We meet them in
college, where they lose their virginity
to each other in a harried one night
stand on a New York
rooftop and

then again a decade or so later in a meeting for sex addicts.


Neither are actually sex addicts, at least in the clinical sense. But
Lainey cant seem to stop cheating on her boyfriends with one old
flame (Adam Scott), and Jake cheats as a way out of relationships
hes too scared to end with a normal breakup.
So Lainey and Jake decide, despite their mutual attraction and
history, to be just friends. It is, quite simply, the story of two people who are prone to self-sabotage, falling in love and trying their
hardest not to act on it. They are arrested development personified.
But this is no exercise in prudish innocence. Sex is there. Its
everywhere actually, and not just in innuendo. There is a scene
involving a green tea bottle that definitely provides a bold update
to Meg Ryans famous performance in
that deli.
Some might be troubled by
the fact that their exploits
during this emotional relationship phase are not, you
might say, equal. Jake gets to
date and sleep with many
other people. Lainey doesnt.
Were told this is her
choice. That she can only
recover by abstaining.
When she does decide to go
out with someone (a doofy
single dad), Jake gets flustered and doesnt want to hear
about it. Lainey, with her doe
eyes and acerbic, suffer no fools

omewhere off in the distance there is


a white picket fence and a family of
four, planted in the middle of a suburban neighborhood. Every house is painted
the same shade of off-white, adorned by a
red roof and grassy green
lawn. Outside there is the
barking of a dog and the
hum of a lawnmower.
Its time to wake up,
America.
Because this place doesnt exist. It is nothing but
a fantasy a place that
only resides in imaginations and daydreams. A place that is simply a
vision and nothing more. A place that is only
a myth.
What does exist instead is a place where
plenty is considered only satisfactory.
Where parents work hard for their children
but never see the day when they can truly be
happy with what they have provided them. A
place where constant scrutiny of perfection is
the norm.
Shouldnt it be that anyone can achieve
anything as long as they work hard? Well,
think again. Welcome to the American Dream
land of the free and home of the impossibility of true success. A nation where there
are only a select few at the top of society and
the rest are left to fight at the bottom.
Logistically, the dream of becoming economically successful is drifting from reality.
While the economy is improving since recent
years, most people are still left in the dust in
the process. As the ability to rise in the economic ladder is becoming increasingly difficult, the wage gap is nearly impossible for
many to cross.
According to FiveThirtyEights chief economics writer Ben Casselman, the American
middle class hasnt seen its wages rise in 15
years. The traditions of millennials are straying far from the classic ideals of the
American Dream in the process, wiping away
its meaning and significance.
In 1988, the typical American adult was

Defining the new Middleman Economy


Science and business writer explores how to create value and profit from the middle
By Paul McHugh
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

A genius need not be a person who generates a new idea, says Silicon Valley science
and business writer Marina Krakovsky. A
genius could be someone who simply finds a
new idea. But ideally, he or she should be
someone who also knows how to share that
idea in a dynamic fashion with other people.
In other words? A middleman.
In her new book, The Middleman
Economy How Brokers, Agents, Dealers,
and Everyday Matchmakers Create Value and
Profit (Palgrave McMillan), Krakovsky says
middlemen have historically scored a bad rap

as parasites, or as con men


who snatch their own slice
of the pie right out of your
portion.
Not true, Krakovsky
said. Not for the best sort
of middlemen, at least.
What the great ones
accomplish through their
services is make that pie
Marina
grow larger for all parties.
Krakovsky
Their portion becomes a
just reward, earned for doing this.
Once you learn to discern middlemen,
Krakovsky said, youll spot them working in
every sector of a modern economy, enabling

and connecting not


only buyers and
sellers of products,
but also entertainers, sports figures,
service providers,
entrepreneurs and
donors of venture
capital.
The
Internet, far from
subtracting roles
for middlemen by
offering everyone
easy access to
abundant data, has increased the need for
savvy experts, able to sort through the

haystack and provide you with precisely the


right needle.
In her new book, she briskly and incisively
analyzes more than a score of examples of
middleman triumph. One is LaJuan StoxstillDiggs, a broke, 21-year-old dad of three a
decade ago, who found good deals in appliances on Craigslist and parlayed them into
better deals, building a career for himself on
the margins. Another is Mike Maples Jr.,
high-flying founder of the venture capital firm
Floodgate, who provides Krakovsky with a
concise summary of how the most effective
middlemen perform: They connect the nodes

The Visit marred by canned scares, flat humor


By Sheri Linden
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES A family get-together


starts out strange and quickly enters nightmare territory in The Visit, a horror-thriller
that turns soiled adult diapers into a motif.
Told from a camera-equipped kids-eyeview, M. Night Shyamalans latest is well cast

school diploma, said Casselman. Twentyfive years later, Americans are older, more
diverse and more educated. We are less likely to be married and more likely to live
alone. Work is divided more evenly between
the sexes.
And most importantly? The income of the
median U.S. household is still just under
$52,000. The notion that any person can
work hard to achieve economic stability in
America is only a reality for a select few. It
is an unachievable dream for the majority.

expectations. Sudeikis and Brie have an

Shyamalans features since the pitch-perfect


Sixth Sense, hope endures among fans that
lightning will strike twice. In the wake of
bloated recent outings After Earth and The
Last Airbender, that hope takes on a particular fervency with this modestly scaled return
to straight-up genre fare. That anticipation
will drive theatrical business for the feature,
as will the lure of sheer horror fun, at least
until word-of-mouth stems the box-office
tide.
Early in the film, theres a wonderful
moment when a moms exuberant clowning
shifts to tears. Played by the terrific Kathryn

Hahn, shes a divorced woman seeing her kids


off at the train station. From that point on, the
energy, warmth and nuance of her performance is reduced to intermittent Skype sessions
a crucial element to the story, but nonetheless a letdown for the viewer.
To give Mom time alone with her
boyfriend, teenage Becca (Olivia DeJonge)
and tween Tyler (Ed Oxenbould), a serious
germophobe and aspiring rapper, have volunteered for a weeklong stay at the
Pennsylvania farm of their grandparents. Its
an especially generous offer given that
theyve never before met Nana and Pop Pop

(Deanna Dunagan and Peter McRobbie).


But theres more to it than generosity; the
camera-wielding siblings, budding auteur
Becca in particular, sense an opportunity to
make a documentary that uncovers the generational rift between their grandparents and
their mother, who left the farm as a teenager,
under circumstances she refuses to discuss.
Cinematographer Maryse Alberti captures
the sense of a nonstop work in progress, seen
through the lenses of the kids video cameras
and laptop, with reality-style interviews, offcenter framing and p.o.v. night footage la
Blair Witch.

becoming more impossible than ever. Except


for a few sharks in the ocean, there really are
plenty of fish in the sea. Plenty of struggling,
low-income fish who will never become a
shark no matter how hard they try.
But looking past the numbers and figures
of the economic status of the nation, there
has emerged an emotional aspect of the
American Dream completely the opposite of
what the dream intended. An endless chase
for perfection, a feeling of never being satisfied with what we have. There is an inability
to ever achieve the state of happiness that
was promised by the dream.
More importantly, as this emerging generation revolves around fast-paced thinking and
constant activity, it is perhaps becoming the
most intellectually active era yet. But with
this drive for perfection comes the consequence of never reaching the peak of happi-

ness the American Dream intended to


achieve. At the same time that we are constantly searching for more success, emotional
fulfillment is becoming virtually impossible.
In fact, achieving the economic status to
fulfill the American Dream has little correlation to overall happiness. According to
Regina Corso, senior vice president of the
Harris Poll, the case may actually be the
opposite.
While the attitudes on the economy may
be improving, were seeing that this is not
translating into an improvement in overall
happiness, said Coros. For certain groups,
such as minorities, recent graduates and the
disabled, they are actually sub-segments of
the American population where happiness
has trended downward in the last couple
years.
Yes, the white picket fence and little house

are an image of perfection. But they cannot


provide true happiness for any individual.
They can be seen as a taunting, unreachable
image for many and a mere insignificant
milestone for others, but they are never the
final step in the American Dreams pursuit of
happiness.
This generation has allowed itself to be
swept up in a cycle of constantly striving for
more and never being satisfied with what has
already been achieved. So while some may
reach the edge of the grassy lawn, the grass
will always be greener on the other side.
Goodbye, American Dream. This nation is
waking up faster than ever.

easy, heady chemistry although it does


take a bit of imagination to accept them (7
years apart in real life) as college contemporaries. They make Lainey and Jake, despite
their flaws and occasionally annoying tendencies, people you want to spend time
with. Sudeikis default smarm is subdued
and flipped into something approximating
charm. You dont have fall in love with
either, because you understand why they
like each other.
The supporting characters are almost non-

entities, save for Jakes married friends


(played by Jason Mantzoukas and Andrea
Savage), who steal every scene theyre in.
Amanda Peet, too, has her moments as one
of Jakes prospects, but shes more plot
device than character.
In the end, this isnt exactly a portrait of
modern dating. This is a fantasy world,
where even a kindergarten teacher has a spacious New York apartment and scores of
expensive outfits. And yet, despite the
glossy, wholly unbelievable magazine quali-

ty of life here, Sleeping With Other

on a network to increase the value of a network. Firms like SitterCity, CarLotz,
OpenTable and Airbnb all come under her
lens, as well as creative real estate agents,
wedding planners and recruiters or headhunters.
Krakovsky sorts effective middlemen into
six essential roles (which often function in
combination): The Bridge, The Certifier, The
Enforcer, The Risk-Bearer, The Concierge
and The Insulator. The Bridge brings parties
together who otherwise would be isolated in
their known cluster of associates; The
Certifier takes the trouble to assure that a
product or a deal is all that its supposed to
be, and separates wheat from chaff; The
Enforcer is a tough negotiator, one who
ensures a client is protected and terms of a
contract fulfilled. And so forth.
You might realize that you need a middleman to help you out on a personal basis, or
enhance some aspect of your business,
Krakovsky said. The way that you can find a
good one is by conducting a search that goes
360 degrees around that middleman. So, if
its the perfect real estate agent youre after,
dont just talk to other home sellers about that
person. Consult with home inspectors, contractors, local civic leaders or even other
Realtors.
As any industry matures, its supply chain
grows more complex and creates more opportunity for middlemen, not less. For example,
20 years ago, no one knew what a home-sale
staging company was. Now, many people use
them, to bring in furniture and dcor, make
your house look as good as it can, and bolster
the asking price. A good one will also give
you blunt advice about what you need to
clean up or fix to achieve or exceed asking.
A longtime business and science writer,
first as a tech writer for Oracle and now as an
accomplished freelancer who publishes in
periodicals ranging from Scientific American
and Wired to The New York Times and

WEEKEND JOURNAL
Washington Post, Krakovsky sees her roles as
combining a certifier and a concierge.
Basically, my job is to discover things,
gather information, present the subject clearly and simply, and make it useful for others,
she said.
Her keen interest in middlemen and their
function in society reaches all the way back
to her childhood in Kiev, the capital of
Ukraine, when that nation was locked up
behind the iron curtain of the USSR.
There were certain guys that we called
spekulyanty or speculators, and what they
did might have been illegal, but they made
things happen that were otherwise impossible
under an oppressive regime. Some people
scorned them, but they were still savvy operators who could get you what you wanted,
whether it was western blue jeans or certain
cuts of fresh meat.
As a student, she also pondered the malice
and scorn poured upon Shylock in
Shakespeares play The Merchant of
Venice, even though conducting European
commerce in the Middle Ages and
Renaissance wouldve been tough without a
suite of services from money-lenders like
him.
After emigrating with her parents to the
United States, earning her degree at Stanford
University and embarking on her writing
career, Krakovsky has built a home and family life in Silicon Valley. Her husband,
Ephrem Wu, is a director of engineering at
Xilinx, and she has dedicated her new book to
him and their two children. She approves of
seeing middlemen in businesses all over the
Valley, occupying positions of high respect.
In fact, for people trying to successfully game
the 21st-century economy, who find their
way up seems to consist of far more slides
than steps, she recommends that they seek
to discern a middleman role for themselves.
This could be done either within their current firm, or in a new and independent startup, just as Genevieve Thiers was able to
found the innovative baby-sitter service
SitterCity, or in the way that Chuck
Templeton brought the restaurant reservation
service OpenTable to robust fruition.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

There are several keys to being a successful middleman. First, understand the type of
role thats a good fit for your baseline personality, Krakovsky said. For instance, if
you tend to avoid conflict, youre not going
to be any good as an enforcer. But if you have
a curious mind, and you enjoy being congenial, you might be a perfect fit as a bridge.

Ultimately, the most important aspect is


that youll have to thoroughly grasp how you
can add value to any transaction for all parties
who happen to be involved. And for you, at
least in the beginning, that value must come
from you earning a chance to build your reputation as an insightful, resourceful and helpful middleman.

Second, youll need to have some kind of


strong interest or even passion for the area you
want to enter. Because while youre enduring
the startup phase, you need to get rewards from
somewhere, and at first that might consist
mostly of some kind of emotional payoff.

Gere is quiet and


moving in portrait
of a homeless man
By Jocelyn Noveck
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

In Time Out of Mind Richard Gere plays a vagrant named George Hammond whose unfortunate fate is teased out slowly
and without sentiment.

Gere: Playing homeless man


was a humbling experience
By Jake Coyle
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK The last time Richard


Gere walked into this bar, he did it as a
homeless man.
Gere plays one in Time Out of Mind,
a movie that he shot almost entirely on
the streets of Manhattan in East
Village back allies, among the trash cans
outside Grand Central Station and inside
the Houston Street bar hes returned to in
order to reflect on an unusually spare and
neo-realistic movie, one Gere has wanted
to make for more than a decade.
I really believe this was one of the
things I was meant to do, says Gere, sitting in a booth in the back.
Inspired by the photography of Saul
Leiter, director Oren Moverman (The
Messenger, Rampart) frequently shot
Gere from far away, hiding the camera
from view to capture an unwitting city
moving around one of the more famous
faces on the planet.
It was an audacious approach, one that,
if successful, would only further prove
part of the movies point: Most of us are
oblivious to those suffering around us.
Gere (also a producer) and Moverman
nervously gave it a test run on the first
day of shooting in the East Villages Astor
Place, where the man forever linked to
Pretty Woman begged for change with
a coffee cup.
As someone who would probably
never stand on a street corner that long, it
was an anxiety-ridden moment, Gere
recalls. None of us really knew what
was going to happen. We thought maybe

we would get five minutes before crowds


started to screw up the shot, that I would
be recognized and it would be over. A
couple minutes into the shot, we realized
no one was paying attention.
They went on shooting unnoticed for
40 minutes, and the same lack of recognition continued throughout the production.
They could have seen Richard Gere if
they looked into his eyes, says
Moverman. Here we are putting makebelieve in the middle of reality, and reality is saying, No, thats reality. Thats not
make-believe. It doesnt matter who it
is.
In Time Out of Mind, which opened
Friday, Gere plays a vagrant named
George Hammond whose unfortunate
fate is teased out slowly and without sentiment. His backstory comes through only
in Movermans patient observation of his
movements around New York.
The movie doesnt just capture
Georges story, though. Its a close-up of
the soul-crushing experience of homelessness: the omnipresent assault of
noise, the indignities of shelters, the sanity-shattering invisibility. But its also a
wider view of urban life where the normal occupations of people are going on
all around him.
Are we all in this together or not, is
basically the question, says Gere.
Somehow, weve gotten habituated to
this idea that were in our separate capsules. Its not true.
Gere, a longtime New Yorker, first got
a pass to homeless shelters 12 years ago.
Hes worked with the Coalition for
Homeless for years and refers to his

Head chef and


proprietor has
totally transformed
the old Kuleto's
Burlingame, CA
Chef Pablo Estrada moved to San
Francisco from Mexico in 1993 after
being raised in his family's bakery
and working with his father, first
learning how to make cakes and
breads. When he arrived in San
Francisco, he took up the family
tradition as a baker at Cafe Pescatore.

homeless friends hes gotten to know


while researching the film. He took a lot
of inspiration from the Cadillac Man
memoir of homelessness, Land of the
Lost Souls: My Life on the Streets.
Getting to actually experience the feeling of begging, if only for hours at a time,
Gere says, was more like being a black
hole than being invisible. He could feel
people avoiding him, going through an
interior opera of guilt that he notes,
ultimately has very little to do with the
reality of that guy on the street corner.
It gave him a taste of how quickly we
deteriorate mentally.
He was shaken by the experience
because this is a man who for 40 years is
used to being looked at and admired by
most and paid attention to and showered
with attention and love, says Moverman.
Here he was dealing with immediate
rejection, with a need to get away from
him, a toxicity he was bringing to the
street corner.
In between takes on the very low-budget film, Gere would wait in a rental car.
The one luxury he allowed himself was a
tea kettle he could plug into the car. For
the longtime Buddhist, there were
monk-like lessons of humility in playing George.
None of it, perhaps, is how many
would expect the 66-year-old Gere, most
famous for less extreme Hollywood productions, to be spending his time. But his
filmography has always been dotted with
more daring than hes often given credit
for, from 1978s Days of Heaven to
2007s Im Not There to 2012s
Arbitrage.

Spare change? Any spare change? The man holding the cup
in the street looks, from a distance, like just some guy in a wool
cap, formless parka and rumpled pants.
Only this is Richard Gere, and if you looked a little closer,
youd recognize those silver-haired good looks and that chiseled
face. And those people on the streets in Time Out of Mind are
actual New Yorkers who often walked by the movie star, oblivious, as director Oren Moverman was shooting, proving if it
needed to be proven that we dont really look at homeless
people among us, even if were handing them a few quarters.
But Geres character, George, also clearly has no desire to be
looked at. He seems to wish he could be invisible. And in this
almost documentary-style portrait of a homeless man clearly
a labor of love for Gere, whos also a producer here the actor
succeeds in moving us deeply, precisely because he doesnt call
attention to himself in an actory way. And yet, the cumulative
effect is heartbreaking.
Although its plot is sparse, one of the things Time Out of
Mind does best is to convey the sense of stunned befuddlement
George feels at his predicament. WE may know that hes a
homeless man, but it takes George nearly three-quarters of the
movie to actually say, Im homeless, and even then, its more
an incredulous question than a statement. Its also one of the
clearest things George ever says. The man is living in a permanent haze of confusion.
George wasnt always this way. Slowly, we learn he was once
employed, a husband, and a father. But tragedy struck, and eventually he lost his job, his home, his family (hes estranged from
his one daughter). When we meet him, hes trying to catch some
shuteye in the bathtub of a friend. (The desperate effort to get a
few hours of good sleep when one doesnt own a bed is
one of the films most depressing motifs.)
We have no idea how long hes been there. But the friend has
been evicted, and George must leave. You dont live here, all
right? snarls the surly building superintendent (Steve Buscemi,
one of several big names, including Kyra Sedgwick, in small
cameos).
George takes his small red suitcase (soon, he wont have even
this) and looks for a place to sleep, to sit, to just BE. He tries the
subway. He tries the emergency room waiting area, but cant stay
there because its not under 32 degrees outside. He tries to seduce
the nurse Im really clean is his grim pickup line just so
hell have a warm bed.
We watch as George slowly tries to navigate his way through
the citys social services. Some of these scenes take patience:
from George, and from us. There are constant questions: Wheres
your birth certificate? What was your last residence? Usually, he
just stares into space or shakes his head. The brightest spark, if
you can call it that, comes from the talkative companion George
finds at a homeless shelter Dixon (a wonderful Ben Vereen),
who says hes a former jazz musician and regales George with
stories. Dixon entertains us, but he sometimes infuriates George,
whos simply desperate for some quiet.
That search for quiet is another unexpectedly devastating element of the film. Moverman and Gere surround George with
conversations extra loud that ordinary people are having
around him: on the subway, on the phone, in Grand Central
Station. These conversations seem to bore themselves into
Georges brain, reminding him that he has no more connections
in life.
As he himself says at one point: I dont know anybody anymore. Gere, whose acting skills have inexplicably been underrated for years, says this line quietly, almost mumbling. But it has
enough force that he could be shouting it off the rooftops.
Time Out of Mind, an IFC Films release, is not rated.
Running time: 120 minutes. Three stars out of four.

Since then, Pablo has worked with


some of San Francisco's top restaurants
including, Campton Place, Restaurant
LuLu, Palio d'Asti, Red Herring, St. Regis
Hotel, Luce at Intercontinental Hotel
and Rose Pistola. Pablo spent time with
prominent culinary luminaries at Reed
Hearon and Laurent Manrique and was
even awarded a Michelin Star four years
in a row while at Luce. His palate and
sensibilities have been further refined by
traveling to Europe and the Americas.
In February, 2014, Pablo left Rose
Pistola and opened his own restaurant
in Burlingame, CA called Fattoria e
Mare. He resides as Head Chef and

1095 Rollins Road, Burlingame I 650-342-4923 I www.fattoriaemare.com

Proprietor and has totally transformed


the old Kuleto's location, which sits
conveniently off the 101 freeway.
Fattoria e Mare is a labor of love for
Pablo, and it is here where he has found the
freedom to turn his art into a delicious
dining experience for each customer.
"I immerse myself in every meal I
create," said Chef Estrada. "I've learned
firsthand that crafting a fantastic meal
goes beyond the ingredients. I love
the energy and artistry of expressing
yourself in cooking. I'm excited to
bring my vision to the Peninsula and
become an integral part of this
wonderful community."

have brought about excessive congestion during the construction period and
have disrupted many commutes and
travels to school. I can assure you that
this was not the intent of the pilot program and the city anticipates the congestion to be temporary, Gee wrote.
The city reacted quickly to the congestion, he said, by extending the two
lanes in both directions at the Emerald
Hill intersection.
That move caused a significant
decline in traffic congestion over the last
two days, Gee wrote.
Although many residents have complained about the congestion, some have
said it has gotten better and will continue to do so.
Redwood City resident Paul Dimano,
who takes his son to Roy Cloud
Elementary School in the mornings, said
that both Thursday and Friday morning
commutes were much better than
Tuesdays situation.
It was smooth and slow, he said.
The whole point of restriping, he said,
was to make the thoroughfare safer for
pedestrians and bicyclists as speeding on
Farm Hill was the norm before.
It was absolutely better Friday than it
was Tuesday, he said.

LENNY
Continued from page 1
schools first funded student government
and served as student body president.
After working in New York for a couple
years and then attending business school
at Stanford University, he settled down
in Half Moon Bay.
When my oldest daughter was a year
old, we moved to the coast and weve
been here 25 years now, Mendonca
said. My grandfather used to fish out of
this harbor. Im Portuguese; theres a big
Portuguese Azorean community out
here. We also wanted a place that was
more rural, but close to everything in the
Bay Area. We were deeply committed to
public schools and wanted to have our
kids go through the public schools and
get involved with them and try to help.
Mendonca, 54, worked at McKinsey
& Company, a global consulting firm,
until retiring last year. He credits his
time there for helping to expand his
worldview and think about politics on an
interconnected, global level as well as a
local level.
Ive also gotten much more involved
in the local community here, and politics
that are rooted here, but trying to understand the broader global context,
Mendonca said.

WEEKEND JOURNAL
Other commuters, however, disagree.
Jennifer Lemas wrote a letter to Gee
saying the traffic jams in the morning
and evening commutes are unacceptable.
She said the middle lane is not appropriately utilized and has created confusion among commuters.
This pilot project needs to end now
as it has caused unacceptable traffic
jams and more dangerous conditions
than ever before, Lemas wrote to Gee.
Others have complained that maybe
the congestion has improved on Farm
Hill but has gotten worse on both
Woodside and Edgewood roads as commuters have migrated elsewhere to
access Interstate 280.
The city is spending $200,000 on the
pilot program.
Jessica Manzi, the citys senior transportation
coordinator,
described
Tuesday mornings congestion as not
acceptable in response to some questions resident Steve Whiting posed to
her.
We certainly wouldnt continue the
pilot for a year if we arent able to
address the congestion that we saw yesterday. We really are working to design
the street so that it can both carry traffic
to/from 280 and be a safe place for people to walk and to drive, Manzi said
about Tuesday.
The pilot will end in August 2016 after
which the council can choose to stick
with three lanes or revert the road back

before it was restriped.


Gee said many who traveled on Farm
Hill before the lanes were reconfigured
commonly exceeded the speed limit,
making it dangerous for bicyclists and
pedestrians as some motorists even
engaged in drag racing on the boulevard.
There are two high-profile crashes
that tend to stick out in peoples minds
for this corridor, according to city
spokeswoman Meghan Horrigan. In
November 2012, a Sequoia High
School student was killed while riding
her bike to school at the corner of
Jefferson and Alameda de las Pulgas;
and, in 2014, a college student driving
down Farm Hill lost control of the vehicle and it wrapped around the tree in
front of the apartment buildings at 3567
Farm Hill Blvd. Fortunately, he and his
passenger survived, but the driver was
seriously injured, Horrigan wrote in an
email.
But those who oppose the restriping
say congestion will only get worse on
Farm Hill and Jefferson once all the construction in downtown is complete and
new office workers flood the city.
A petition is currently being circulated, signed by more than 1,814 individuals, that is calling for the City Council to
scrap the pilot completely.

Home brewing had been a hobby for


him for some time, and moving to Half
Moon Bay gave him the idea to open his
own brewery.
We wanted a place that we could
come to with our friends and our kids
and have a good time, Mendonca said.
From the beginning, it was designed to
bring all of the high-quality craft beer,
not a place to just drink. Were very family-friendly.
The Alection isnt the only political
statement made at Half Moon Bay
Brewing Company. They also produce a
Not for Sale Ale, proceeds from which
go to combat human trafficking, and
hold monthly or bi-monthly Brews and
Views events, which returned Sept. 3
after a summer sabbatical. The events
are similar to a town hall discussion, but
in a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere.
When I was growing up, we used to
go the Commonwealth Club and I really
liked hearing people and speakers,
Mendonca said. What we wanted to do
was have it be more community-oriented, and we have space, so we wanted to
see if we could get people interested in
coming and talking, and have it not just
be a speech, but actually engage with the
audience.
The friendly, informal atmosphere of
Brews and Views has proven to be a hit,
with speakers jumping at the opportunity and eager to repeat the experience.

After 30 years of frequent travel for


McKinsey and Company, Mendonca is
happy to have the opportunity to relax at
home to pursue his interests since his
retirement.
I took a year to explicitly say no to
anything, and my wife and I traveled
with the Giants, Mendonca said. It
was also a chance to recharge a little bit
and a good excuse to say no to everybody. I concluded during that time that I
did not want to do anything full time, so
Im doing this portfolio of different
things that I find interesting. And then
Im writing a book.
Mendonca describes his upcoming
book as a more optimistic view of the
United States and an exploration into
how to break partisan gridlock and move
forward. Despite being retired, he
continues to run Half Moon Bay
Brewing Company and continues to
serve as co-chair for the nonprofit political reform group California Forward, as
well as chair and founder of FUSEcorps,
which partners with civic leaders and
entrepreneurial professionals in an effort
to address challenges in urban communities. The next Brews with Views event
will be held Sept. 17 with ACLU
Executive Director Abdi Soltani discussing the marijuana initiative in
California.
