City considers ban on new massage parlors
Questions arise over legitimacy of Belmont therapists’ education, certification
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
Questions over the legitimacy of massage workers in the city of Belmont is leading to a frank discussion on limiting the number of new establishments while ofﬁcials verify the quality of the schools and the training of those in the industry.
A recently passed state law shifted permitting responsibility from individual cities to the newly formed California Massage Therapy Council, a nonproﬁt agency that regulates and standardizes the issuance of massage certiﬁcates. The CAMTC recently issued a notice to applicants that if they attended class at 31 suspect mas-
sage therapy schools they need to provide more than just a transcript as proof of education. City officials went further in their summary of the notice and said most massage therapists and practitioners in Belmont went to schools that may not be legitimate and “serve as a conduit for sex workers,” according to a staff report by City
Attorney Marc Zafferano. Ahmos Netanel, chief executive ofﬁcer at the CAMTC, said yesterday, however, that the 31 schools listed as being suspect were not because of prostitution but rather because of their lack of qualiﬁcations. “We never describe any of these schools under those generaliza-
tions,” Netanel said. “It in no way means that anyone who attended these schools is a prostitute.” The CAMTC’s role is to help protect the public and to differentiate between competent and non-competent massage therapists, Netanel said. Massage therapists can now apply

County celebrates Americans with Disabilities Act
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF
To get a feel for what it is like to be a person with a disability, Marilou Gorospe and Trisha St. John had attendees of a disabilities fair in Redwood City yesterday try some challenging tasks. The two had visitors to Community Gatepath’s resource table try on glasses that blurred the vision and put socks on their hands to represent limited dexterity before trying to button up a shirt or tie a shoe. It wasn’t easy. “Just think of doing this every day,” Erika Bjork, Gatepath’s communications specialist, said on the anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The ADA was signed into law 20 years ago yesterday by former president George H.W. Bush. The law requires reasonable accommodation for and bans discrimination against those with physical or mental impairments. The county celebrated the signing of the ADA yesterday by hosting a disabilities awareness fair at the County Center. There are approximately 140,000 people in San Mateo County who have some sort of disability, according to the San Mateo County Health System. Yesterday’s fair was hosted by the San Mateo County Commission on Disabilities, established in 1991. “We still have a long way to go but we are getting there,” said Scott Sinor, who works for the Commission on Disabilities. “We

LOS ANGELES — Without a budget resolution in sight, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger hinted Monday that he might not sign a budget before he leaves ofﬁce next January unless he gets the reforms he wants. California faces a $19 billion deﬁcit for the ﬁscal year that began July 1, and Schwarzenegger is demanding pension, tax and spending reforms in the new budget. He said that if the Legislature doesn’t give him a budget that meets his
expectations, he won’t act on it. “If I don’t get all of the things that we need in order to be ﬁscally responsible ... I will not sign a budget and it could actually Arnold Schwarzenegger drag out until the next governor gets into ofﬁce,” Schwarzenegger told reporters after meeting with the Los Angeles Area Chamber of

Vice President Richard M. Nixon was nominated for president on the ﬁrst ballot at the Republican national convention in Chicago. In 1789, President George Washington signed a measure establishing the Department of Foreign Affairs, forerunner of the Department of State. In 1794, French revolutionary leader Maximilien Robespierre was overthrown and placed under arrest; he was executed the following day. In 1866, Cyrus W. Field ﬁnished laying out the ﬁrst successful underwater telegraph cable between North America and Europe (a previous cable in 1858 burned out after only a few weeks’ use). In 1909, during the ﬁrst ofﬁcial test of the U.S. Army’s ﬁrst airplane, Orville Wright ﬂew himself and a passenger, Lt. Frank Lahm, above Fort Myer, Va., for one hour and 12 minutes. In 1919, race-related rioting erupted in Chicago; the violence, which claimed the lives of 23 blacks and 15 whites, lasted until Aug. 3. In 1940, Bugs Bunny made his “ofﬁcial” debut in the Warner Bros. animated cartoon “A Wild Hare.” (There had been previous incarnations of the “wascally wabbit,” but this is considered the ﬁrst deﬁnitive example of his now-familiar persona.) In 1953, the Korean War armistice was signed at Panmunjom, ending three years of ﬁghting. In 1967, President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed the Kerner Commission to assess the causes of urban rioting, the same day black militant H. Rap Brown said in Washington that violence was “as American as cherry pie.”

Strange but True
Iowa teen known as ‘Deer Magnet’after hitting five
DES MOINES, Iowa — A central Iowa teen has earned the nickname “The Deer Magnet” after hitting ﬁve deer in the past year. Seventeen-year-old Kacee Larson of Conrad says her string of bad luck began last July when she was driving home from her job at an ice cream shop. She saw the deer an instant before hitting it. Larson’s second collision happened a few months later, while she was driving to church on a Sunday morning. The streak continued. After Larson hit her fourth deer, her pastor’s wife advised her to start praying before she got into a vehicle. Larson says was doing just that Friday when she hit her ﬁfth deer. The crash totaled her minivan, and the air bag left bruises on her arms. Larson says she can’t help asking: “Why me?” gathered around the 16-foot creation after the sun rose. San Diego County sheriff’s Lt. Tony Ray said no criminal report was ﬁled because there was no damage to the statue.

Idaho police dog back to work after suspension
SUN VALLEY, Idaho — A police dog in the central Idaho resort town of Sun Valley is back on duty after serving a “suspension” for an unprovoked attack on a small schnauzer. Sun Valley Police Chief Cameron Daggett says the 5-year-old German shepherd named Dax took a few weeks off the job after the incident. The dog will receive more training to prevent a reoccurrence of what Daggett says was an unfortunate situation. Dax is a four-year veteran of the force. He is trained to ﬁnd illegal drugs, missing people, and evidence at crime scenes. On June 26, authorities say Dax attacked a schnauzer named Max. Max’s owner says the city is paying the $600 veterinarian bill.
Man decked out in Darth Vader mask robs bank
SETAUKET, N.Y. — Times must be tough back at the Empire. A bank robber dressed as “Star Wars” villain Darth Vader made off with an undetermined amount of cash after pointing a handgun at startled tellers inside a Chase bank branch on Long Island. Detectives say the man walked into the bank shortly before noon Thursday wearing a full head mask and a blue cape. The only part of the uniform that was out of place were his camouﬂage pants. And that handgun — no light saber. Suffolk County police detective Sgt. William Lamb told reporters that at least one customer at the time didn’t think the theft was legit. The customer, whose identity was not released, can be seen cowering on the ﬂoor in a surveillance camera photo, moments after the robber shoved him away.

Occasionally, I review the premiere of a new work and think, “This is going to be a classic.” Then, I don’t write the review for a few days, rethink it, and yes, I believe “Auctioning the Ainsleys,” developed by playwright Laura Schellhardt at the TheatreWorks Annual New Works Festival and premiering by TheatreWorks on the stage at the Lucie Stern Theatre is going to make the grade. What else can I think, when the concept is original and brilliant, a play about people and the objects that own them; the dialogue is brilliant and studded with engaging original humor and the actors and the staging are exceptional?

The latest proposal called for 25 single-family dwellings on 27 parcels. The project won’t reach the Planning Commission for ﬁnal consideration for approximately six to nine months. In the meantime, county ofﬁcials are asking the public to tell them how they want the controversial plan analyzed and is holding a meeting Wednesday morning to cull ideas for the process.

A proposal to construct houses in a steep section of the San Mateo Highlands now in its eighth year in the public planning process is heading back to county ofﬁcials who, this time, want the public to help review the latest revisions. “We are committed to designing a review process that the community wants, not what we think the community wants,” said Community Development Director Jim Eggemeyer in a written statement. The project, known as Ascension Heights, is proposed for a 13.25acre section approximately a quarter-mile from the College of San Mateo and bordered by Bel Aire Road, Ascension Drive and single family homes. The project is predominately located on a hillside where the slopes average 40 percent. The area was graded more than 40 years ago but surface runoff caused erosion along Ascension Drive over time. The first proposal was for 26 houses and one 40-unit condomini-
tions, appeals and reviews. The developer ﬁrst submitted an application in 2002 and the Planning Commission rejected its draft environmental impact review in December 2009 because of worry over drainage, erosion and aesthetics. The developer appealed the decision to the Board of Supervisors which sent the project back to planning staff for a revised application. The public process kicked off by Wednesday morning’s meeting will help form that application. County staff hope for an open house in the Highlands neighborhood and at least two workshops. Those who are unable to attend Wednesday’s commission meeting but wish to comment can contact Planner James Castaneda at 3631853 or email@example.com.

San Diego City Council bans offshore boozing
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN DIEGO — San Diego’s City Council has banned so-called “floatopia” parties where people booze it up on inner tubes offshore. The council voted 8-0 Monday to close the loophole on an alcohol ban that was approved by voters in November 2008.
Several speakers told the council that the ban was an overreaction and would drive away tourists, but council members — with strong support from police officials — said it was a question of public safety and the cost of policing the crowds. Attendance at “floatopia” events has reached up to 6,000 people, requiring dozens of rescues. The ban takes effect immediately.

WASHINGTON — Thought the housing crisis was over? Not quite. Despite four years of falling prices and recent signs that they were ﬁnally bottoming out, homes are expected to lose still more value in many metro areas over the next year. Parts of the country already pummeled by the housing crisis, like Las Vegas, Phoenix and Miami, will be hit hardest. But even some places that have rebounded or held up relatively well — including New York, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. — will suffer, too. That’s the conclusion of economists who have been reducing their estimates for home prices as the outlook for the economic recovery has darkened. The number of homes for sale or headed for foreclosure is so high that they think prices will be even lower by next July. Because housing is such an important engine of the economy, lower prices

could dim the recovery. When home values fall and people have less equity, they tend to cut back on spending. And as prices decline, potential homebuyers stay on the sidelines, slowing sales even more. Earlier this year, analysts said they thought home prices had ﬁnally reached their low point and were ready to start rising slowly in most areas of the country. Now, they think the actual bottom could be nearly a year away.
City tries to fund story time
San Bruno council getting creative with library financing
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT
Fire grows to three alarms in Millbrae
A ﬁre at a home on Bertocchi Lane in Millbrae yesterday morning quickly spread from the garage to the rest of the home, prompting the Millbrae Fire Department to call three alarms, said Fire Chief Dennis Haag. The ﬁre started at about 10 a.m. and ﬁre crews were busy cleaning up three hours after it started. One resident was home, smelled smoke and called 911, Haag said. “We treated the girl for smoke inhalation at the scene,” Haag said. The ﬁre started in the garage and traveled up some duct work into the rest of the home, Haag said. The ﬁre in still under investigation, Haag said.
Covering the $22,000 needed to keep San Bruno libraries open on Fridays and community activities going could come in a variety of forms — including further cuts to hours. Earlier this month, the San Bruno City Council approved a $30.3 million budget for the recently-started ﬁscal year. Among the $1.85 million in reductions was $70,000 in library services. The council requested staff come up with a plan to cut $48,000 instead, saving $22,000 for library services. Such a move would keep the library open for limited hours on Fridays while maintaining access to story time and the summer reading program. Tonight, the council will hear a variety of options to fund the savings. A few options will be discussed. First is the recommended option from staff which would tap into money from the State Library Fund. San Bruno
receives about $60,000 yearly from the state program, money which is supposed to be used as seed money for capital projects. In recent years, the city has transferred money from the account into the general fund to help the imbalance. Transferring an additional $22,000 would mean a $550,000 ending balance this year, City Manager Connie Jackson wrote in a staff report. Other options include using gas tax funds to cover the City/County Association of Governments assessment, freeing up general fund money for the library costs; allocating new revenue from yet-to-be-set-up communication tower rental agreements; or reconﬁguring the library hours to be further reduced while maintaining a short opening Fridays. San Bruno’s library is currently open four hours on Friday, but would not be open on Fridays should the entire $70,000 in cuts go into effect, said Library Director Randy Schwartz.
Community programs like an adult book club, summer reading program and story time would also be cut. If $48,000 in cuts were made, on the other hand, Friday hours would be maintained and little kids in pajamas can come to story times. Currently, San Bruno offers story times in English and Spanish, and also offers a pajama story time, said Schwartz. Regardless of the proposal approved, the library will be open two less hours daily Monday through Thursday, changing the hours to 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Under the last funding proposal, the hours could be changed from noon to 8 p.m. daily and the library would be kept open 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays. However, Jackson wrote about concerns that the part-time hours may not be flexible enough to be covered. The council meets 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 27 at the Senior Center, 1555 Crystal Springs Road in San Bruno.

Pelosi and McConnell give different views on stimulus

BP’s Hayward heads to Russia
LONDON — BP is jettisoning CEO Tony Hayward, whose verbal blunders made the oil giant’s image even worse as it struggled to contain the Gulf oil spill, and will assign him to a key job in Russia, a person familiar with the matter said Monday. Hayward is set to step down in October and take a post at TNK-BP, the company’s joint venture in Russia, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement had not been made by the British company’s board. The move was being made more than three months after an oil rig explosion set off the spill and less than two weeks after a temporary cap ﬁnally stopped the oil from leaking. The government’s oil spill chief, retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, said in Washington on Monday that efforts to solidly seal BP’s busted deep-sea well are set to begin in a week. Moving Hayward gives BP a chance to make a fresh start. BP executive Robert Dudley, an American who has been overseeing oil spill recovery efforts, is likely to be his successor. “The sooner Bob Dudley is empowered to act as CEO, especially with regard to the U.S., the better it will prove to be for BP,” said Stephen Pope, the chief global equity strategist at Cantor Fitzgerald in London.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday urged state lawmakers to lobby for House-passed initiatives endangered in the Senate, while Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell complained congressional Democrats were out of touch with voters. The two leaders gave starkly different assessments of the country’s current course in partisan-tinged speeches at the annual meeting of the National Conference of State Legislatures. Their comments to the bipartisan gathering previewed potential election-year attacks by both parties in their struggle for control of Congress. Pelosi credited last year’s $787 billion stimulus package, passed over deep Republican objections, with creating or saving as many as 3.6 million jobs so far. She asserted that more jobs will be created in the ﬁrst eight
months of 2010 than in the eight years of Republican George W. Bush’s presidency, though Republicans have frequently disputNancy Pelosi ed those numbers. “The fact is that those eight years took us into a ﬁnancial crisis, a deep recession and took us into deep deﬁcits,” the California Democrat said. A short time Mitch later, McConnell McConnell countered that the massive stimulus “hasn’t kept us from losing another 2 1/2 million jobs” with unemployment at 9.5 percent.

High-paid city council says they’ll slash pay
BELL — The beleaguered Bell City Council has voted to slash its salaries by 90 percent, and two members say they will not seek reelection when their terms are up. The council voted unanimously Monday to set every member’s salary at what Councilman Lorenzo Valez is paid, about $8,000 a year. The other four council members
Around the state
have been making about $100,000 a year for their part-time service on the City Council of this modest blue-collar city of about 40,000 residents. Mayor Oscar Hernandez and Councilman George Mirabal also said they would not seek reelection when their terms are up. Hernandez also said he would take no salary for the rest of his term.
NEW ORLEANS — The government’s oil spill chief says workers expect to begin the two-step process of finally killing BP’s blown-out well in a week. Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen says Monday that the so-called “static kill” — in which mud and cement are blasted into the top of the well
— should start on Aug. 2. If all goes well, the ﬁnal stage — in which mud and cement are blasted in from deep underground — could begin Aug. 7. BP has said the bottom kill could take days or weeks, depending on how well the static kill works. Tropical storm forecasts last week forced crews to suspend their work 40 miles off the Louisiana coast for several days. Allen says he’ll order an evacuation again if a similar storm forms.

Commerce on Monday. Schwarzenegger also told the chamber that he opposes a ballot initiative in November to pass a budget with a simple majority vote of the state Legislature, rather than the current two-thirds majority. Earlier this month, the Field Poll found that 65 percent of voters favor Proposition 25, which backers say would make it easier for lawmakers to pass a budget. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, only California and Rhode Island have a two-thirds vote requirement for passing a budget, while nearly all other states require a majority budget vote. Arkansas has the toughest requirement with a three-quarters budget vote. The governor, a moderate Republican, said allowing passage of a budget by simple majority vote would give too much power to the dominant party in the Legislature. “One party will make all the decisions,” Schwarzenegger said. California isn’t facing a cash crisis as severe in the past, but without a budget the state will start to have trouble meeting its obligations. According to the state controller’s ofﬁce, California will have enough cash for the month of August. After that, the state has to delay pay-
ments to schools and local governments and possibly issue IOUs again. The governor on Monday tried to stress the severity of the state’s ﬁnancial problems as California entered its fourth week of the new ﬁscal year without a balanced budget. For weeks, there have been no signs of progress. “I don’t want to hand this problem and this burden over to the next governor, so I am absolutely committed that I will not sign a budget if we don’t have all of those reforms in place,” Schwarzenegger said. In recent years, the Democratic leaders who control the Assembly and Senate have agreed to one budget plan, which is then negotiated with Republicans and the governor. This year, however, the two leaders released separate plans and have agreed only in principle to protect funding for schools and social programs for the poor. The two Democratic leaders — Assembly Speaker John Perez of Los Angeles and Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg of Sacramento — said Monday they won’t accept a cuts-only budget as proposed by Schwarzenegger and backed by Republican lawmakers. Instead, Democrats are calling for a delay in corporate tax breaks and adoption of a new oil tax. “If the governor continues to insist on granting billions in corporate tax cuts ﬁnanced by drastic cuts to public education and programs for working mothers and their children, I am prepared to grant his wish by waiting for the next governor,” Steinberg said in a statement.

‘This city suddenly has news more exciting that budget challenges and parking meters if for no other reason than it raised one question: There are that many massage workers in Belmont?’
going to arrange a D.C. ﬂing with a Belmontian to work out the knots and kinks. We might be talking about things that happen in Vegas that don’t necessarily stay there. Mainly, we’re talking about a sleepy little suburb which recent reports would have the public think is ﬁlled with Desperate Housewives and more desperate husbands. If sex sells, what better than tales about houses of ill repute? But if true, there aren’t technically any houses ﬂipping on the red light and resurrecting the Mustang Ranch. Instead, Belmont’s seedy underbelly is hidden behind the curtain of illegitimate spa businesses rather than parked on street corners and arranged on the Internet. If true, the term deep tissue has a whole different meaning in this city. But no more! The city attorney is ready to crackdown on rub downs, asking the City Council to enact an emergency moratorium on new massage permits. The council will consider a 45-day ban and could extend the cap even longer. Legitimate health spas wanting to set up shop better start looking for real estate elsewhere. Armed with a list of questionable schools, ofﬁcials want to doublecheck whether licensed therapists whose alma mater isn’t quite as pedigreed are actually armed with a different sort of skill set. That second look might take some time; 37 of 46 workers in Belmont were licensed by schools the nonproﬁt California Massage Therapy Council said were suspicious. But the proverbial pimp slap to business might not be warranted, according to the state council head who was quoted as saying schools are deemed questionable for a number of other reasons like acting as a diploma mill or fabricating training time. In other words, the schools are sketchy but not necessarily sexy. The workers might not know how the difference between Shiatsu and Swedish but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re turning Belmont into the Amsterdam of the west. Of course, it also doesn’t mean they aren’t.

Rubbed the wrong way
elmont brieﬂy got a lot more interesting. San Carlos might be the City of Good Living, but rumor has it neighboring Belmont might be the City of Good Feeling. Proving that Belmont is more than a picturesque pit stop between more populous Peninsula cities, recent headlines blared that 80 percent of the city’s massage workers might be involved in a different type of physical therapy. All at once, the town best known for banning smoking and decrying a Peace Pole as too political seemed like a slice of David Lynch territory, all deep-dark secrets and unspoken vices. This city suddenly has news more exciting that budget challenges and parking meters if for no other reason than it raised one question: There are that many massage workers in Belmont? Let the other Peninsula cities bicker over red-light cameras. Belmont had bigger ﬁsh to fry over its apparent red-light district. We’re not talking “Pretty Woman” here. The ladies (OK, maybe men, too) in question aren’t ever going to be stopped by a Bay Area state legislator who later claimed he needed directions or a county ofﬁcial who got a tad bit turned around. We’re also not talking Client 9. Eliot Spitzer is probably not ever
Daily Journal e-mail:
And that is obviously the point. Legitimate therapists and ofﬁcials want some greater demarcation between those who want a client to relax and those whose work involves a little more excitement. A moratorium won’t rid the city of prostitution, if it even exists to the extent portrayed. But it does give ofﬁcials a little more authority and offers the illusion that these types of things don’t happen in their town. Belmont might attract a little less attention but at least it will seem respectable. In that way, the city can consider this a happy ending.

Voter system not serving the county
Editor, Why would the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors refuse to give voters the option of changing the method of electing supervisors? Fifty-seven of 58 counties in California use a district-specific system, San Mateo County is alone in making candidates run countywide. The current system of electing supervisors benefits incumbents, discourages political newcomers and fosters races in which no real issues are debated or discussed. The opportunity for legitimate candidates to mount a solid campaign is hampered by the high cost of running an expensive countywide (as opposed to a district-specific) race. The benefits of district-specific elections bring out candidates who are actually connected to their district and more competitive races giving voters better choice. Among the reasons given by supervisors to remain in the current Jurassic voting system include: • “We don’t want to be [San Francisco] County”: Interesting objection, but dislike of a single instance is hardly grounds to ignore 56 other counties who have successfully implemented this standard; • “Democracy is Expensive”: The notion of putting artificial barriers to keep the process expensive only perpetuates the growing cost of campaigning; • “If it ain’t broke...”: The grand jury and the Charter Review Committee felt the system was clearly “broken.” After months of study, the conclusion was clear and the question of changing the voting system ought to be put to the voters. The debate on whether this change is right for San Mateo County would have been an important one to have. We are living in extraordinary circumstances and need leadership who can stand up to the challenge. Sadly, this debate is now moot and the lingering question remains whether the people of San Mateo County were served by this decision. One would be hard pressed to say we were. ing and traffic flow is very limited? There might even be fewer passengers from San Francisco to Oakland than from the East Bay and other areas traveling to San Francisco for high-speed rail access. It could start taking a longer time getting to the highspeed rail terminal then the actual high-speed rail travel time to the L.A. area. This could emulate today’s problems of many large urban centers with present day air travelers. A continued BART system down the Peninsula to San Jose with a Dumbarton shortcut over the Bay might also be a thought for future study. This could replace Caltrain that is currently having so much trouble with a much more frequent and faster service.

Transportation in the Bay
Editor, Has anyone completed a study of how many San Franciscans actually travel today to Los Angeles, daily, weekly, monthly? By plane, train, bus or car? This study would help define the real need for a terminal in downtown San Francisco instead of the traditional San Francisco rail terminus in Oakland. Greater Bay Area populations presently seem to have easier access to Oakland. San Francisco is already filled with overflowing congested traffic. Should we create more vehicular congestion instead of trying to eliminate it? If BART is the designated people carrier offsetting vehicular congestion over the Bay bridges (which are presently working overtime); couldn’t BART also bring high-speed train travelers from San Francisco to Oakland just as well, instead of carting them into downtown San Francisco where automobile park-
Editor, As longtime residents of San Mateo and regular patrons of the downtown business community, we are extremely concerned by the reports of recent gang-related violence in the downtown area (“Teen, 14, charged with attempted murder” in the July 20 edition of the Daily Journal). The recent melee in front of Friendship Hall is alarming, not only due to the violence itself, but the likelihood that such mayhem will spawn retaliatory bloodshed in the near future. If such violence, intimidation and general disorder persists, we may have to change our residence and take our business elsewhere. San Mateo’s police department needs to get matters under control and quell gang activity before this city degenerates into anarchy.

Political double standard
Editor, As a registered nurse of almost 30 years who is still working and is a member of CNA (California Nurses Association), I am appalled that this organization would go to a person’s home and invade their privacy as they did with Meg Whitman July 15 (“Nurses rally outside Whitman’s home” in the July 16 edition of the Daily Journal). Spending any amount of money just to obtain an airplane to fly overhead with a banner berating a candidate is reprehensible. How fiscally irresponsible can an organization be as to spend their member dues in this manner? If a Republican did this to a Democratic candidate you would never hear the end of it.

percent for the year. The broader Standard & Poor’s 500 index is still showing a loss for 2010, but barely. It’s down less than 0.01 percent. Trading volume was light Monday, a sign that traders might be a little cautious despite the gains. Many are likely waiting for hundreds of earnings reports to be released this week before they make any major investing decisions. But FedEx gave traders reason to buy when it said its overnight and ground delivery businesses are doing better than expected, and that it expects a moderate global economic recovery. That was heartening news because the shipping giant, which carries packages for businesses and consumers, is considered a barometer for how the economy is doing. The shipping company raised its earnings forecast for the three months that will end Aug. 31. It said it expects to earn between $1.05 and $1.25 per share,
NEW YORK — The Dow Jones industrial average gained more than 100 points for the third straight day Monday after traders got some unexpected good news about the economy. A report on the housing market came in better than traders anticipated. And shipping giant FedEx Corp. released a forecast that was more upbeat than the prediction it made just six weeks ago. The news pulled stocks out of a slow start and sent the Dow up 100 points by the close for a three-day gain of 405. Traders who a week ago were selling on a pessimistic view of companies’ earnings and the economy are now buying on the belief that the economic recovery, while slow, is proceeding. The Dow has now closed higher in 12 of 17 trading days this month. Its latest advance means the average is up 7.7 percent in July after falling 10 percent from April through June on a stream of bad economic news. The Dow is also up 0.9
up from its previous estimate of 85 cents to $1.05 per share. Six weeks ago, traders were disappointed by FedEx’s forecast. “FedEx tells you a lot about overall manufacturing in the country,” said Russ Koesterich a managing director at the money manager BlackRock Inc. “The positive release tells investors the recovery is bumpy but is still on pace.” Shortly after trading began, the Commerce Department said new home sales rebounded from a record low in May to an annual rate of 330,000 units, more than economists expected. The gain came after sales hit a record low annual rate of 267,000 in May. The report showed that the housing market might be weathering the severe slump that began with the expiration of a homebuyer’s tax credit at the end of April. Sales are still down 72 percent from their peak annual rate of 1.39 million in July 2005. Last year, sales plunged to a rate of 375,000 last year. So June’s number was still weak, but traders were relieved that it wasn’t worse.
FedEx boosts forecast for year
By Samantha Bomkanp
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — In another sign of confidence in the global economy, FedEx Corp. on Monday raised its earnings outlook for the current quarter and full year. The world’s second-largest package delivery company said an overall boom in air and truck shipments is being driven by its speedy international priority service, where it ships high value goods like computers, iPhones and e-readers. Shipments are particularly strong out of Asia. Besides gadgets, the company’s next largest international priority segments are electrical components like disk drives and ﬂash memory, vehicle
components, high-end luxury goods and drugs and medical supplies. International priority shipments are expected to jump 20 percent this quarter — showing that customers are increasingly willing to pay more to get packages faster. FedEx shares climbed $4.50, or 5.8 percent, to $83.56 in midday trading. Because of its renewed optimism in its business, the Memphis, Tenn., company said it will fully reinstate the company match for 401(k) plans across the company on Jan. 1. FedEx rescinded the match when the economy was near its worst point, and said it would reinstate a 50 percent match for most U.S. employees late last year. The cost of this move is included in the company’s new earnings forecast.
The company, a bellwether for U.S. economic health, expects to earn between $1.05 and $1.25 per share for its ﬁrst ﬁscal quarter that will end Aug. 31, up from 58 cents a share a year ago. The forecast is up from its previous guidance of 85 cents to $1.05 per diluted share. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, on average, expected earnings of $1.01 a share. For the full ﬁscal year ending in May 2011, FedEx expects earnings per share of $4.60 to $5.20, up from its earlier guidance of $4.40 to $5 a share, reﬂecting the current market outlook for fuel prices and a continued moderate recovery in the global economy. Analysts expected earnings of $4.98 per share. The company reported earnings of $3.76 per diluted share last year.
Ford introduces untraditional Explorer
By Dee-Ann Durbin
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
DEARBORN, Mich. — The Ford Explorer used to be one of the best-selling vehicles in the U.S., but as demand for big, truck-like SUVs fell, so did its sales. Now Ford is trying to breathe new life into the Explorer by reinventing it as a more car-like, fuel-efﬁcient utility. Ford begins a marketing campaign Monday for the 2011 Ford Explorer, which will be in dealerships this winter. The automaker promises a utility vehicle with seating for seven that has similar fuel economy to a Toyota Camry sedan.
At $28,190, the base price is also $1,000 less than the 2010 Explorer. It’s priced competitively, midway between the Toyota 4Runner and Jeep Grand Cherokee. The new Explorer has been completely redesigned. The most obvious difference: It’s built on a car platform, not a truck one, so it sits lower to the ground and has a smoother, more fuel-efﬁcient ride. The new Explorer shares a platform with the Taurus X sedan. Ford is taking a risk with an important vehicle, which is Ford’s best-known product after the Mustang. Some buyers looking for a truck-like SUV will be disappointed. The new Explorer will have
less towing capacity than the outgoing model — 5,000 pounds, versus 7,115 pounds — and it won’t offer a V-8 engine. “Ford’s challenge is to match the idea of the Explorer to this product,” said Aaron Bragman, an analyst with IHS Automotive. “It’s a good test for Ford to determine what an SUV is these days.” Trends in the market suggest most buyers aren’t looking for the power of traditional SUVs and would prefer a more fuel-efﬁcient vehicle. Ford’s top U.S. sales analyst George Pipas said that a decade ago, 85 percent of all SUVs sold were truck-based; last year, just 23 percent were.

New Bratz dolls from MGA
NEW BRATZ: Two new lines of the doeeyed, pouty-lipped Bratz dolls by MGA Entertainment Inc. are heading for Toys R Us, Target,Walmart and other stores by late August. THE BACK STORY: A federal appeals court last week overturned a ruling that their maker, MGA Entertainment, had to turn over the brand to Mattel Inc. LESS SEXY: Bratz, once controversial for their heavy make up and provocative wardrobe, have been revamped to wear less makeup and more clothing and be more ﬂexible, said MGA CEO Isaac Larian.
NEW YORK — New Bratz dolls are heading to stores after a federal court overturned a ruling that their maker, MGA Entertainment, had to turn over the brand to Mattel Inc. Two new lines of the doe-eyed dolls should hit stores such as Toys R Us, Target and Walmart by the end of August. Bratz, the pouty-lipped, provocatively dressed rivals to Mattel’s Barbie, have been scarce as Mattel and MGA battled over their rights. Last week an appeals court overturned a lower court’s ruling upholding Mattel’s claim that Bratz’s designer was actually working for Mattel when he created them and Mattel should
get ownership of the trademark. The case may be retried. MGA, which launched the doll 10 years ago, is shipping several new Bratz products: • “Passion for Fashion” dolls that retail for $9.99 and come with extra clothes and accessories; • “Party” dolls, which retail for $19.99 and come with both day wear
and party wear. • a pair of twins, Roxxi and Phoebe, in a two-pack for $24.99; • two Bratz Boyz at $10.99 each; and • play sets such as a spa for $49.99 and a club lounge for $34.99. The new Bratz have less makeup and more ample clothing and are more ﬂexible than earlier versions, said MGA CEO Isaac Larian.

Tampa Bay’s Garza no hits Detroit
By Fred Goodall
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Rays ﬁnally wound up on the right side of a memorable pitching performance. Matt Garza threw the ﬁrst no-hitter in franchise history and the ﬁfth in the major leagues this season, beating the
Detroit Tigers 5-0 Monday night. The right-hander faced the minimum 27 batters, allowing only a second-inning walk to Brennan Boesch, for a team that’s often been on the wrong end of no-hitters lately. The Rays have been held hitless three times since last July, including a pair of perfect games. “It was one of those days where
everything lined up,” Garza said. “The defense made great plays. I really can’t say enough about them.” Garza was the latest to enhance the Year of the
Pitcher. The last time there were at least ﬁve no-hitters in a season was 1991, when Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan threw one of seven in the big leagues that year, according to STATS LLC. Garza, the 2008 AL championship series MVP, rebounded from one of his worst outings of the season. He retired pinch-hitter Ramon Santiago
for the ﬁnal out on an easy ﬂy ball to right ﬁelder Ben Zobrist, who made a terriﬁc running catch in the third to rob Danny Worth. “That ninth inning,” Garza said, “I kept telling myself, ’Just ﬁnish it, just ﬁnish it, just battle, battle. If it’s meant to happen, it’s going to happen.”’

Run comes to an end

LOS ALTOS — In the last two years, the San Bruno Pony All-Star team has put together some solid performances. Monday wasn’t one of those occasions. San Bruno fell behind early in an 11-7 loss to Los Altos-Mountain View in an elimination game of the Northern California Region tournament at Rosita Field. Despite the defeat, it was another nice run for San Bruno, which has gone 22-5 in the last two seasons. “We had a great tournament and it was a great run,” San Bruno manager Travis Hastings said. “This team is never ﬂat, but if there ever was a time it could be, maybe it was today.” San Bruno was coming off a long Sunday in which it won two elimination games to keep its tournament title aspirations alive. Perhaps that’s why the players on the team didn’t ramp up its dugout chatter in Monday’s contest until it was a little too late — in the bottom of the seventh inning. San Bruno trailed 11-3 entering the ﬁnal frame before scoring four runs. “That’s what we told the kids (afterward), that when they bring the energy as they did in the last inning, they’re capable of beating anyone,” Hastings said. Give credit for San Bruno for even making a game of it. For a while it looked as if it would be mercy-ruled after falling behind 110 after the top of the fourth. Los Altos-Mountain View scored three times in the ﬁrst, added a six spot in the third and two more in the fourth to build what turned out to be a deﬁcit too steep for San Bruno to overcome.
Owens can help O
NATHAN MOLLAT / DAILY JOURNAL
ff the top of your head, quick, tell me one — of the several — positions both the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders need to upgrade. Would you say a quality wide receiver? What if I told you there is a Hall of Famer free agent available, albeit on the downside of his career. Would you be interested? This player has put together a career that puts him in rare company of the all-time greats. He is third in receiving yards, sixth in receptions, third in touchdowns scored and 10th in average yards per game — all time. Think a guy like that could help the NFL teams on either side of the Bay? There is one catch: His name is Terrell Owens. That screeching you just heard was everybody hitting the brakes on that idea. But think about it: Is it really such a crazy play? No matter what happens with Owens off the ﬁeld, he comes to play every Sunday. He played in the Super Bowl with a broken leg and his two years in Dallas were hindered with a ﬁnger so badly injured he risked the possibility of it never functioning properly again, yet kept on playing. OK, there are the wild mood swings and the ticking time bomb that can explode on a teammate at any given moment, but given the state of the 49ers and Raiders, shouldn’t the reward outweigh the risk? The reward is this: Put Owens on either team and he becomes one of the top wideouts on the squad. Look at his numbers: Last year with Buffalo, he led the team in catches (55), yards (829), yards per catch (15.1) and touchdowns (5). All right, compared with Reggie Wayne

Florida cools off red-hot San Francisco

Marlins 4, Giants 3
Barry Zito (8-6), the ﬁrst of three lefty starters Florida will face this series, lost for the ﬁrst time in seven career starts against the Marlins and the Giants had their four-game winning streak snapped. This series is a matchup of two surging teams trying to stay in the playoff chase. Florida is 50-49, above .500 for the ﬁrst time since the club was 28-27 on June 3. Leo Nunez, the fifth Marlins’ reliever, escaped a ninth-inning rally for his 24th save in
SAN FRANCISCO — Dan Uggla and Mike Stanton each hit solo homers and the Florida Marlins moved above the .500 mark for the ﬁrst time since early June with a 4-3 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night. Ricky Nolasco (11-7) struck out seven and allowed four hits and one run in 6 1-3 strong innings to win for the sixth time in seven starts. Cody Ross had a sacriﬁce ﬂy and Stanton added an insurance RBI double in the eighth.
29 opportunities. The potential tying run was on third when the game ended. The Giants’ Aaron Rowand rounded the bases after hitting what was ultimately ruled a two-run homer in the seventh. A fan appeared to interfere on the play by sticking his glove over the outstretched arm of leaping left ﬁelder Emilio Bonifacio and catching the ball. Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez came out to make his case and the umpires came together then headed for the replay booth. The home run stood, making it a 3-2 game. It was Rowand’s ﬁrst career pinch-hit homer. Giants rookie Buster Posey extended his hit-
ting streak to 19 games, three shy of matching Hall of Famer Willie McCovey’s San Francisco rookie record set in 1959. Posey held a Barry Bonds-like pregame press conference in the dugout and received a rousing ovation when announced before ﬁrst pitch. “It’s pretty cool,” he said of chasing McCovey’s mark. The Marlins kicked off a key seven-game West Coast trip against the Giants and the NL West-leading San Diego Padres. Florida went 7-3 on its recent homestand, including six wins by one run and four via walkoff hits.

Bengals owner Titans sue Kiffin,USC for poaching assistant wants to sign T.O.
By Teresa M. Walker

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CINCINNATI — Bengals owner Mike Brown is trying to produce his own reality show. Terrell Owens. Chad Ochocinco. Together in Cincinnati. Brown said on Monday that the team has discussed a contract with Owens and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. The Bengals passed on the chance to sign the 36-year-old receiver after a tryout in March, but have given it more thought now that he remains a free agent. If Owens accepts the offer, the Bengals would lead the league in reality Terrell Owens show stars. Receiver Chad Ochocinco appeared on “Dancing With the Stars” in the offseason, and has a dating show called “Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch” currently playing on VH1. Right after Ochocinco’s show comes “The T.O. Show.” While Ochocinco elimiMike Brown nated two contestants in his recent show, Owens donned a metrosexual look for a fashion show — bare chest under an open jacket and a wig. What they’d do together in a locker room would get some attention, too. Brown noted that Owens caught the winning 57-yard touchdown pass in Dallas’ 31-22 victory over the Bengals in 2008. “I think that I would rather have him line up on our side of the ball than the other side of the ball,” Brown said, at the team’s annual preseason luncheon. “I can remember playing Dallas a few years ago when he caught a pass across the middle that won the game for them. “So I’ve seen him do it. I’ve seen him do it against us. I’d like him to be here and do that
against somebody else.” So would Ochocinco, who is a close friend and lobbied unsuccessfully for the Bengals to sign Owens in March. Instead, they chose receiver Antonio Bryant and gave him a fouryear deal. One change since then: Cincinnati’s quarterback has joined the lobbying effort. Carson Palmer has been working out with Owens in California, and excitedly called coach Marvin Lewis about making a run to sign the receiver. “Carson was really impressed with a lot of the things that Terrell was doing,” Lewis said. “Carson’s comments to me — I guess the word is they resonate well.” Ochocinco has resumed his Twitter lobbying to sign Owens. Last March, he dubbed the two of them Batman (Owens) and Robin. He thinks Palmer, who wears No. 9, has more sway with the front ofﬁce. “im out of the loop now, i expressed my beliefs on why he should be here and that’s all i can do, (No.)9 has the real power,” Ochocinco tweeted. The ﬁnal say rests with Brown, who has a history of giving chances to players with trouble in their past. He repeatedly brought back receiver Chris Henry, who was arrested ﬁve times and died last year in a fall of his ﬁancee’s truck. In the last two years, the Bengals also have signed running back Cedric Benson, running back Larry Johnson and receiver Matt Jones, all of whom were let go by teams because of off-ﬁeld issues. In an interview with The Associated Press earlier this month, Owens pointed out that he was on good behavior last season in Buffalo, where he caught 55 passes for 829 yards and ﬁve touchdowns — his least-productive full season since early in his career with San Francisco. “Yes, people can make mistakes,” Brown said. “It doesn’t mean that they go on the rest of their lives making mistakes. They can get their ship pointed in the right direction. This is a 36-year-old man. He’s been through a lot. He’s proven as a player and as a person.”
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans are suing Southern California and coach Lane Kifﬁn for “maliciously” luring away assistant running backs coach Kennedy Pola a week before training camp opens. Tennessee Football Inc., the company that owns the Titans, filed the lawsuit Monday in Davidson County Chancery Court against both the university and Kifﬁn. The lawsuit accuses Lane Kiffin Southern California and Kifﬁn of violating Pola’s contract that required him to have written permission to discuss a job with anyone other than the Titans. Tennessee hired Pola as running backs coach in February only to lose him Saturday to Southern California as the Trojans’ new offensive coordinator Jeff Fisher and running backs coach. “USC and Kifﬁn maliciously intended to — and did — induce Pola to breach the Pola contract,” the lawsuit charges. “USC and Kiffin engaged in improper means in their procurement of the breach and were not legally justiﬁed in their actions. Kifﬁn and USC’s actions, through him, were part of a course and pattern of conduct fostered by Kifﬁn and USC to use improper methods and means to the direct harm and damage of parties to contracts ...” The Titans declined to comment Monday beyond the lawsuit. Titans coach Jeff Fisher, a Southern California alumnus, said Saturday that Kifﬁn neglected to make the customary courtesy phone call to let him and the NFL team know he was interested in hiring Pola. Fisher himself had hired Pola, letting go Earnest Byner to free up the spot on his coaching staff. Pola’s contract ran at least to Feb. 14, 2011, with the NFL in the ﬁnal year of its current
labor agreement with the players. The lawsuit lawsuit notes that written permission from the president and general counsel was needed because verbal “consent is inadequate.” The lawsuit also notes Southern California and Kifﬁn, through Pola, knew about his contract requirements. “Pola was not given express written consent by Tennessee Football or the Commissioner of the NFL to entertain employment with any other entity,” the lawsuit argues. The move left the Titans without a running backs coach one week before training camp opens, which the lawsuit argues disrupts planning, causes “potential loss of conﬁdence by players” and the loss of salary and beneﬁts already paid to Pola along with “future damage.” The lawsuit is particularly harsh on Kifﬁn for what it calls intentional actions. Kifﬁn said he ﬁrst spoke to Pola on Friday, and then called Fisher on Saturday after Pola called him back, apparently to accept the job. Kifﬁn acknowledged in a statement that timing wasn’t perfect. “I have spoken with Coach Fisher and he now has an accurate understanding of the timeline of events,” Kifﬁn said. “We realize the timing of this isn’t perfect for all parties, but this is a great opportunity and promotion for Kennedy.” Fisher told The Tennessean newspaper he was very disappointed in Kifﬁn’s lack of professionalism. The lawsuit doesn’t hold back in criticizing Kifﬁn for “furtherance of a culture of violation and avoidance of respect for the sanctity of contract, which Kifﬁn similarly practices ...” in inducing Pola to breach his contract. The lawsuit notes Kifﬁn “abruptly departed” his coaching job at the University of Tennessee in January after just 14 months, which angered Volunteers’ fans. Kifﬁn also lured four other Tennessee coaches to join him at Southern California, and the lawsuit also notes how Kifﬁn tried to hire Eric Bienemy away from NFL’s Vikings, forcing Minnesota to redo his contract to keep the assistant. The lawsuit asks for a jury trial and punitive damages and attorneys fees. The Tennessean ﬁrst reported the lawsuit on its website.

Cowboys try to downplay receiver dustup
By Stephen Hawkins
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN ANTONIO — Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams can’t even get his 4-year-old son to carry his shoulder pads. “Man, I can’t get anybody to carry them,” Williams joked Monday. “I’m mad at him too.” A day after the drama created when ﬁrstround pick Dez Bryant refused to carry the veteran’s pads off the ﬁeld after practice, a longstanding rookie ritual, Williams said it was “not a big deal” and that the teammates were ﬁne with each other. Bryant didn’t comment while jogging off the
ﬁeld with cameramen and reporters following him. There are some who believe Bryant could challenge Williams for the starting job opposite Pro Bowl receiver Miles Austin. The rookie has been impressive in all four sessions so far, Roy Williams and during some post-practice drills Monday dunked the ball over the goalpost after catching a pass in the end zone. Though he called the shoulder pads situation “a non-issue,” coach Wade Phillips said he addressed the team about it because of how
quickly the story spread. Phillips said he talked to someone from Toronto who said it was a top story there. Then again, Dallas is the NFL’s only full squad already in training camp. And it is the Cowboys. Asked if the story was being overblown and silly, Dez Bryant veteran tight end Jason Witten responded, “Absolutely.” Bryant said Sunday that he was drafted to play football and not carry another player’s pads. He said he would feel the same if he was a free agent and not the ﬁrst-round pick.
“Because it’s Dez vs. Roy, that’s why it’s a big story,” Williams said. “It’s all in fun. I had to do it and I was the seventh pick. ... If you don’t want to do it, it’s not like I’m going to put a gun to your head and make you do it.” Williams said he still remembers carrying Tai Streets’ pads when he was a rookie with the Detroit Lions in 2004, and paying for plenty of meals — something he expects Bryant to eventually do, too, though they haven’t spoken about it yet. “He wants to concentrate on football, and we’re going to let him concentrate on football,” Williams said. “But when we go out to eat, I’m going to be a little bit more hungry and thirsty.”
Castroneves sorry for post-race tirade
By John Marshall
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Helio Castroneves’ passion is part of what has made him one of the best IndyCar drivers of a generation. Now, that emotion might have gotten the three-time Indianapolis 500 champion in trouble. IndyCar Series ofﬁcials are reviewing an incident involving Castroneves just after the checkered flag flew at Sunday’s race in Edmonton. Castroneves crossed the line ﬁrst, but was penalized for blocking teammate Will Power on the ﬁnal restart and Scott Dixon was declared the winner. Enraged by the decision, the Brazilian driver bolted from his car after the race and started screaming at IndyCar ofﬁcials, touching one on the chest and grabbing another by the collar. The second ofﬁcial, who was much bigger than the 5-foot-8, 147-pound driver, didn’t react to Castroneves, who was eventually
pulled back. Castroneves issued an apology for his post-race actions on his website on Monday. “Although we do not agree to the penalty, there is no excuse for my actions after the checkered ﬂag,” he said. “I apologize to my Helio Castroneves team, our sponsors, the fans and the entire IZOD IndyCar Series community for my behavior. My actions were totally wrong and I acted inappropriately to some people who are my friends and people I respect very much. Obviously, I am a very emotional person and today I let my emotions get the better of me and I’m very sorry for that.” The incident happened with three laps to go after Simona De Silvestro drove off the course after running out of fuel. Power gunned to the outside of Castroneves and appeared to have a bargaining agreement, the union and Kovalchuk are entitled to an expedited resolution. The NHL acknowledged that it has received a copy of the grievance. Kovalchuk’s deal was likely rejected because he was to earn $550,000 in each of the last ﬁve seasons of the contract that was to run through the 2026-27 season, when he would be 44. He was to earn $98.5 million in the ﬁrst 11 years of the deal. Kovalchuk was drafted ﬁrst overall by the Thrashers in 2001 and has 338 goals and 304 assists in 642 career NHL games. Last season, he had 41 goals and 44 assists. He was traded to New Jersey in February.
good enough run for the pass, but had to back off after Castroneves altered his line. IndyCar Series competition president Brian Barnhart black-ﬂagged the No. 3 Team Penske car for blocking, but Castroneves refused to take the drive-through penalty, bypassing the pits twice on his way to crossing the ﬁnish line ﬁrst. The flag man held the checkers when Castroneves passed, waving it few seconds later when Dixon crossed for his second IndyCar win this season. Castroneves, who lost the 2008 Detroit Grand Prix to Justin Wilson in similar fashion, was dropped to 10th. “Obviously, I disagree with the decisions
made by the race ofﬁcials on the last restart in today’s race,” he said. “It was absurd, because I never changed my racing line.” After the race, Barnhart stood by the decision and condemned Castroneves’ post-checkers actions. “It“s really disappointing that it comes down to something like this,” Barnhart said in a video posted on websites for IndyCar and the Versus network. “In a situation like that, we as ofﬁcials are just reacting to what happens on the racetrack. We don’t create the situation; we respond to it. And the rule is clear in it. In every drivers’ meeting, we talk about it.” Now, Castroneves has given them something else to talk about.
NHLPA files grievance against NHL over Kovalchuk contract
TORONTO — The National Hockey League Players’ Association has ﬁled a grievance over the league’s rejection of the landmark $102 million contract between Ilya Kovalchuk and the New Jersey Devils. The league rejected the 17-year deal contract last week, saying the longest contract in league history violated its salary cap. The union disputed that belief in its grievance Monday. It said that under the collective

loss. San Bruno had the bases loaded with one out in the ﬁfth and runners at second and third base with one out in the sixth only to come up agonizingly empty each time. “If we score in one or both of those innings, maybe it’s a different game,” Hastings said. “Today, things just bounced a little differently. The reason why we’ve been here is because of our defense and we just didn’t have it today.” San Bruno committed three errors, leading to ﬁve of Los Altos-Mountain View’s ﬁrst nine runs. San Bruno made only one error in four games in winning sectionals, but regionals was a different story. Still, San Bruno advanced one step further than it did last season. The team was spearheaded by Watkins and Wood, who both hit a robust .647 in sectionals and did pretty well in regionals, too. Monday, Wood led the team with two hits. Hastings said one of the team’s highlights was Sunday’s dramatic 5-3 win over Sierra Valley. San Bruno trailed 3-1 entering the sixth before rallying for the victory. D.J. Hernandez produced the go-ahead and eventual gamewinning hit and Eddie Cecchi closed things out in relief with a strong seventh inning. San Bruno assistant coach Jason Smiley said he was most proud of the fact that once again San Bruno displayed a grind-it-out attitude beﬁtting of its underdog status. “We’re drawing (our All-Star team) from 35 kids, and we pick the best 15,” Smiley said. “You have some teams here in the tournament that are drawing kids from a 50-mile radius. One of these days we would like (to combine some cities) and put together a (mega AllStar) Peninsula team.” Until then, San Bruno has shown it’s plenty capable of doing well on its own.

However, Hastings said he was proud of his players that they never quit, as they answered with three runs in the bottom of the fourth. David Montes reached an on an error, Sean Watkins walked and both advanced a base on a passed ball before scoring when Joey Himuro reached on an error. Three batters later, Billy Wood stroked a run-scoring single to left ﬁeld — San Bruno’s ﬁrst of its six hits in the game. Los AltosMountain View certainly gave San Bruno chances to come all the way back, as it ﬁnished with six errors — including three in the ﬁnal inning. Unfortunately for San Bruno, while it did score four times in the ﬁnal stanza, its inability to manufacture runs in the ﬁfth and sixth innings was probably the biggest factor in its

Against Westchester, San Mateo lost despite a strong pitching performance from starter Barry Timko, who struck out his ﬁrst nine hitters of the game while allowing only three hits in seven innings. The Shockers were up 3-2 entering the ninth when Westchester hit a two-run homer to account for the go-ahead and winning runs. Sunday, San Mateo led San Bernardino 4-1 after three before being outscored 11-0 the rest of the way. The Shockers ﬁnished the season at 31-9.

But he always seems to do well in that initial honeymoon stage, when he says and does all the right things. No doubt Owens is nearing the end of his career, but a future Hall of Famer is almost always a better option than potential. *** Since the movie, “The Bucket List” came out, that term has become du jour to indicate things one wants to accomplish before they die. I don’t have such a list, per se, but there are things that I want to do, such as, touring all of the stadiums in Major League Baseball. Since that is not on the horizon any time soon, I did get to cross a couple things off my “to do” list in the last month or so: I always who’s batting .347 with 24 homers and 88 RBIs, hit a hard liner to left leading off the eighth. Carl Crawford barely had to move to make the play. The Tigers were no-hit for the ﬁrst time since Randy Johnson shut them down at Seattle on June 2, 1990. After Boesch walked, he was erased on a double play. Garza said his teammates didn’t leave him off by himself in the dugout during the late innings. He noticed several of them standing in the same spot, however, adhering to superstition. “I recognized it and didn’t want to look up. I was like, ’Just keep looking down and stay focused and get ready for the next inning,”’ he said. Garza (11-5) struck out six in Tampa Bay’s 2,039th game — and on a night when the Rays struggled to generate much offense themselves. wanted to watch a professional baseball game from behind the plate, as well as watch a game from a luxury suite. Thanks to fabulous friends and family, I’ve done both this summer, albeit both were accomplished at Oakland A’s games — not my favorite team, but as a Bay Area fan, I root for the green and gold. My buddy’s dad has season tickets — right behind the plate. Literally. My seat was directly in line with the home plate umpire, two rows back. Then, over the weekend, my wife’s boss treated us to a game in a luxury box. I quickly came to the conclusion that watching the game behind the plate is the absolute best venue. Sure, it’s ﬁrst-class treatment as all the food is free and they serve you at your seat. Heck, the only time you have to get up is go to the bathroom — although I asked if even that was necessary. The suite is nice, but unless you’re there with a bunch of rowdy friends — which I was Matt Joyce’s grand slam with two outs in the sixth was the ﬁrst hit off Detroit starter Max Scherzer (7-8). The next batter, Jason Bartlett, singled for the only other hit of the night until Crawford homered in the eighth. The 26-year-old Garza, who tossed a onehitter at Florida on June 26, 2008, retired Don Kelly on a routine grounder to second base in the ninth and struck out Gerald Laird before getting Santiago to end it on his 120th pitch before a crowd of 17,009. In addition to the ﬁve no-hitters thrown this season was the perfect game Detroit righthander Armando Galarraga was denied because of a missed call at ﬁrst base by umpire Jim Joyce. Oakland’s Dallas Braden tossed a perfect game against Tampa Bay on May 9, and Philadelphia’s Roy Halladay also was perfect at Florida on May 29.

not — it’s easy to be distracted. In fact, since the box was so crowded, I ended up watching most of the game on the television monitors set up in the suite. Behind the plate, not only can you legitimately call balls and strikes, but can also razz the players and umpire, knowing they can hear you. I didn’t get out of control, but I know the umpire heard me as I questioned his strike zone on occasion, or the fact he called a strike every time there was a 3-0 count, whether it truly was in the zone or not. Because I cover so many baseball games, I ﬁnd I now have a hard time staying with the game unless I have a scorecard in my lap. Behind the plate, however, I had no problems paying attention.

Vernon Davis — technically a tight end — was the Niners’ best receiver last year, with 78 catches and 13 TDs. The Niners’ top wide receiver was Josh Morgan, who ﬁnished with 52 catches and three touchdowns for 527 yards. A tight end was also the best pass catcher for the Raiders in Zach Miller.

Garza’s teammates mobbed him near the mound after a performance that left the New York Mets and San Diego Padres as the only big league teams without a no-hitter. The Rays began play in 1998 — the Padres in 1969 and the Mets in ’62. The closest Detroit’s injury-depleted lineup came to a hit was Worth’s two-out liner in the third, but Zobrist made a leaping catch above his head as he retreated toward the wall. “I was able to time it just right for my jump. Caught it right in the end of my glove,” Zobrist said, smiling. “He pitched so great. It’s his day. I felt honored to be part of a game like that.” Tigers cleanup batter Miguel Cabrera,

The Tigers lineup he faced was missing Magglio Ordonez, Carlos Guillen and Brandon Inge because of injuries. Detroit manager Jim Leyland was ejected in the third for arguing with second base umpire Marty Foster after B.J. Upton’s stolen base. Upton went to third on a wild pitch, but Scherzer struck out Kelly Shoppach before retiring Zobrist on a pop foul to get out of the inning.

ﬂushed appearance while exercising are signs that you are mildly dehydrated. Once dehydration worsens, all those indicators stop functioning. In hot conditions, says Testa, you can lose 2-3 liters of water per hour — almost TWICE what your stomach can absorb. Preventative hydration is key. • Drink ﬂuids with and between meals and before exercise, but never more than two pints at a time. • Eat fruits and vegetables (they’re 95 percent water). • Avoid caffeinated, alcoholic and carbonated beverages. • During summer exercise, drink 8-12 ounces every 15 to 20 minutes, less for very long-lasting activity. • After 30 minutes, replenish electrolytes, in particular sodium, which stimulates water absorption from your small intestine. • Drink at least 16 ﬂuid ounces after exercise. “Weigh yourself before and after exercise. Any weight you have lost is fluid loss and needs to be replaced,” says Testa. “For every pound you lose during exercise, drink a pint of water afterward. Remember the old cooking adage: ‘A pint is a pound the world ‘round.’” If you lose more than 3-4 pounds, in the future drink more water in advance, preceding exercise or during exercise. If you continue to sweat for a half-hour after exercise, this is a sign that your body is still trying to lower your core temperature, which means you became overheated and need to be more careful next time. Shah, who works with several professional dance companies, cautions that you don’t have to be riding in the Tour de France to become dehydrated. It can hit when you golf, walk, ﬁsh, sit in the sun on a boat, go to the beach on a foggy day, swim, exercise indoors without air conditioning, or couple physical activity with going in and out of airconditioned gyms.

When Tour de France cyclist Cadel Evans wanted to press on after fracturing his elbow in a fall in Stage 8, BMC Racing Team physician Max Testa, M.D., made the call. Seeing no risk of permanent damage, Testa gave Evans the green light. “It was a stable fracture — small but very painful,” he said. “Cadel is a super-tough guy, so he managed very well. He did as much as any human could do.” Dehydration, in Testa’s experience, is another matter entirely. He says that when people are coping with intense physical exertion, dehydration is a serious risk, particularly in the sort of extreme temperatures seen across the U.S. this summer. “A hot environment is one of the most severe stresses an athlete can endure,” says Testa, also an exercise performance physician in Salt Lake City. “Water has a high thermal capacity, so it’s able to keep your temperature constant. For that reason, drinking water before, during and after exercise is more important than fuel.” Your organs and chemical reactions work only within a precise range of temperature. If you go above this ideal range and become hyperthermic (too hot), you may become dizzy, fatigued, winded. This can lead to cardiac problems, even death. Selina Shah, M.D., a sports medicine physician at the Center for Sports Medicine at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco, points out that water is also necessary for proper muscle contraction and for blood ﬂow. “Dehydration decreases blood volume,” Shah says. “Your blood thickens, forcing your heart to work harder. Blood is shunted to your brain because it’s the most important, then to the muscles you are utilizing for exercise, which means

less ﬂow to your GI — your gut.” Shah notes that this may cause cramping, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting — or headaches and confusion, which, ironically, often lead to people misinterpreting their thirst as hunger. When summer temperatures exceed your skin temperature, your body’s ability to release heat is compromised. Humidity increases the challenge. When you perspire, sweat evaporates from your skin and cools your body. High humidity, however, prevents evaporation. When sweat drips off you, it’s not evaporating — and not cooling your body. Thus, sweating and a
CHICAGO — More than 70,000 children and teens go to the emergency room each year for injuries and complications from medical devices, and contact lenses are the leading culprit, the first detailed national estimate suggests. About one-fourth of the problems were things like infections and eye abrasions in contact lens wearers. These are sometimes preventable and can result from wearing contact lenses too long without cleaning them. Other common problems found by researchers at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration include puncture wounds from hypodermic needles breaking off in the skin while injecting medicine or illegal drugs; infections in young children with ear tubes; and skin tears from pelvic devices used during gynecological exams in teen girls. Malfunction and misuse are among possible reasons; the researchers are working to determine how and why the injuries occurred and also are examining the prevalence in adults. Those efforts might result in FDA device warnings, depending on what they ﬁnd, said study co-author Dr. Brock Hefﬂin. The most serious problems involved implanted devices such as brain shunts for kids with hydrocephalus (water on the brain); chest catheters for cancer patients receiving chemotherapy at home; and insulin pumps for diabetics. Infections and overdoses are among problems associated with these devices. Only 6 percent of patients overall had to be hospitalized.

Japanese women extend life expectancy to new high
TOKYO — Japanese women are expected to live almost 86 1/2 years, topping the world longevity ratings for the 25th straight year, the government reported Monday. The statistics for 2009 compiled and published by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare showed both Japanese women and men extended their average life expectancy to new records - 86.44 years for women and 79.59 years for men. Average life spans rose by almost ﬁve months for women and nearly four months for men compared to the previous year. Japanese men, however, saw their average life expectancy slip to ﬁfth from fourth in the world ranking, according to a ministry ofﬁcial, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing department rules. Long life is usually good news. But in a country with a low birth rate and declining population, longer life expectancies mean a disproportionately large elderly population. The graying of society is expected in the near future to strain government services and pension programs, while causing labor shortages. The steady increase in Japan’s longevity largely reﬂects good medical treatment that reduced the mortality from cancer, cardiac disorders and strokes - the three main causes of death in Japan - as well as pneumonia, the ministry ofﬁcial said. Health ofﬁcials often cite Japan’s relatively healthy diet and high living standards as contributing to growing longevity. But an increasing number of suicides among elderly men dealt a slight setback for male longevity, he said. Suicide, crime and alcoholism among the elderly have become growing problems because of low income and unstable employment. Women in Hong Kong came in second in the world’s longevity ranking at 86.1 years. France was third, at 84.5, followed by Switzerland at 84.4 years.
Full face transplant man displays new look
MADRID — A Spanish man who underwent the world’s ﬁrst full face transplant appeared before TV cameras Monday for the ﬁrst time since his surgery, thanking his doctors and the family of the donor. Identiﬁed only as Oscar, the 31-year-old spoke with considerable difﬁculty at a news conference at Barcelona’s Vall d’Hebron hospital, where he was operated on in late March. During the 24-hour surgery, doctors lifted an entire face, including jaw, nose, cheekbones, muscles, teeth and eyelids, and placed it masklike onto the man. He has been described as a farmer who was unable to breathe or eat on his own after accidentally shooting himself in the face ﬁve years ago. The head of the surgical team, Dr. Joan Pere Barret, said Monday that Oscar will need between a year and 18 months of physical therapy and is expected to regain up to 90 percent of his facial functions. He is now being released from the hospital and sent home. He is able to drink liquids and eat soft foods, and has been able to speak for the past two months, the hospital said in a statement. The patient also has regained feeling in most of his face and is partly recovering movement of his muscles. One good sign was that a week after the operation, he had to be shaved because of beard growth. But he also suffered acute rejection twice — once four weeks after the surgery and again between the second and third months. Both times, the new face was saved with medication, the statement said. At the news conference, Oscar seemed relaxed as he looked out at reporters with eyes he cannot yet close completely.

Tests aim to settle if fresher blood works better
By Lauran Neergaard
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Facing surgery? You could receive blood that’s been stored for a week, or three weeks, or nearly six — and there’s growing concern that people who get the older blood might not fare as well. It’s a question with big implications for the nation’s already tight blood supply. Blood is rotated almost like milk on the grocery shelf: The Food and Drug Administration allows red blood cells to be stored for 42 days, and hospitals almost always use the oldest in their refrigerators ﬁrst to ensure none expires. How old the blood you receive is depends on how much the hospital has of your type that day. The average age of transfused blood is just over 16 days. This summer, hospitals around the country are launching major new research to try to settle if fresher blood really is better for at least some patients. And if so, they’re hunting ways to turn back the clock for older blood — like the University of Miami’s work to wash away some cellular debris — and offset any deterioration. Donated blood “saves lives every day. We certainly do not want to run out of it,” says Dr. Simone Glynn of the National Institutes of Health, which is spearheading the multimillion-dollar studies. But if shelf life is proven to make a difference, then “how can we have the safest product possible?” asks Glynn, transfusion medicine chief at NIH’s National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Those attempts range from trying to improve the oxygen-carrying capacity of stored blood to ridding it of so-called microparticles, cell fragments that gradually build up in storage. “It’s very challenging to ﬁnd out what’s causing this,” Miami’s Dr. Wenche Jy, who’s leading the microparticle work, says of the age-of-blood debate. About one in every seven hospitalized patients requires a transfusion, a staggering 15 million bags administered in the U.S. each year — with few donations to spare. Every year, parts of the country experience spot shortages. Scientists have long known that blood breaks down the longer it’s stored, but not whether those changes were enough to trigger side effects. Several years ago, a number of small studies began suggesting that blood well under the FDA’s 42-day storage limit may increase the risk of complications like blood clots, infections, or organ dysfunction.
Then the Cleveland Clinic examined records of 6,000 of its past heart surgery patients — and found those who received blood that was more than two weeks old were slightly more likely to die, required a ventilator longer and had higher rates of infection and kidney failure than those who got fresher blood. Earlier this year, Connecticut researchers reported similar ﬁndings in a study of 200 trauma patients. But that’s far from proof. Maybe the sickest patients just got the oldest blood, a ﬂaw these kinds of look-backs can’t overcome. Complicating the controversy, other similarly performed studies concluded age of blood doesn’t matter, finding no differences between patients who got older or fresher transfusions. Enter the more stringent research to ﬁnd out: • In the largest NIH-backed study, 15 hospitals will recruit 1,800 patients about to have heart surgery who agree to be randomly assigned to get blood more than 20 days old or less than 11 days old, and then track how they fare. (Patients who don’t participate would get older blood anyway, per standard hospital policy.) • In Canada, researchers are enrolling 2,500 patients in critical-care units into a similar study that deﬁnes “fresh” as no older than a week. Separately, they’re also studying the question in several hundred premature infants who need blood. • The Cleveland Clinic has enrolled about 1,000 heart-surgery patients and counting into another comparison, this one deﬁning fresh as no older than two weeks. At the same time, the NIH is funding eight additional projects to tease apart just what happens to stored blood that might trigger side effects. One leading theory is that stored blood gradually loses its ability to get oxygen to tissues, largely through loss of a blood vessel dilator called nitric oxide. And Jy’s team has found those microparticles play a role in blood clotting and inﬂammation, and that they start accumulating inside blood bags around day 10. Next up is a study of 500 heart surgery patients to test if washing two- or three-week-old blood in special machines that ﬁlter out the microparticles can make a difference. However the debate turns out, it already may be spurring hospitals to be more conservative with blood. “We actively seek to avoid transfusions whenever possible,” says the Cleveland Clinic’s Dr. Colleen Koch, through such steps as using devices that capture and recycle a patient’s own blood during surgery.

the suspected illegitimate schools the beneﬁt of the doubt. “Maybe they went to two schools,” Warden said. “My understanding is the city will not shut these places down. We are not just going to revoke licenses.” Warden said he wasn’t even aware the city had 10 massage parlors. “I think there are more massage parlors than dry cleaners in town,” Warden said. “How many more massage parlors do we need?” Mayor Christine Wozniak has a healthy respect for massage and wants to protect the reputations of legitimate therapists. “We are trying to prevent the proliferation of non-legitimate therapists who are breaking the law,” Wozniak said. When the CAMTC was ﬁrst created late last year, the San Mateo Police Department described the agency as “problematic” because it hindered the department’s ability to combat human trafﬁcking and prostitution. “Law enforcement agencies are now working closely with the CAMTC collaboratively and cooperatively in an effort to stop human trafﬁcking,” Deputy Police Chief Mike Callagy said. Legislation proposed by Assemblyman Sandre Swanson, D-Oakland, may help clarify the process, Callagy said. Assembly Bill 1822 would add two members to the CAMTC board picked by speciﬁed peace ofﬁcer organizations and clarify that a city, county or city and county, is authorized to require a speciﬁed background check of any owner or operator of a massage establishment who is not certiﬁed to practice massage by the organization. The CAMTC currently has no law enforcement component. To see the CAMTC’s list of 31 suspect massage therapy schools, go to: www.camtc.org/Schools.aspx.

The nonproﬁt agency partners with the county to advocate for affordable and sustainable housing for all. “We are working toward creating housing that is more accessible to seniors and persons with disabilities,” said Joshua Hugg, who works for the housing council.

to the CAMTC for certiﬁcation and can work anywhere in the state without applying for a massage therapy permit from a local city. Of the 46 massage technicians currently licensed in Belmont, 37 reported that they went to schools on the CAMTC list of suspect institutions, according to Zafferano’s staff report. And when the city gave the technicians their permits, the city did not have the resources to check if the schools they attended were actually legitimate, said Belmont police Lt. Pat Halleran. “We did criminal background checks but often took school transcripts or diplomas on face value,” Halleran said. The industry is growing and Belmont is getting a couple of applications a week for new massage businesses, Halleran said. The Belmont City Council will decide tonight whether to approve an urgency ordinance to impose a moratorium on the issuance of business licenses, massage technician permits and massage establishment permits for 45 days. The moratorium could get extended for a year. Four of the ﬁve councilmembers must approve the ordinance for it to pass. “The moratorium will stop the ﬂow of new people before we get the current ones sorted out,” Halleran said. The police department will contact all 37 massage therapists who went to the suspect schools to make sure their credentials are in order, Halleran said. The city has 10 massage parlors and many of the new applicants Belmont gets also attended some of the suspect schools, Halleran said. “There is a lot of potential for abuse in this industry,” Halleran said. “We want to
make sure illicit activity isn’t taking place. It is not a prohibition.” There have not been any recent arrests for prostitution in Belmont, Halleran said, but the city does get the occasional complaint. The city, however, does not have the resources to conduct undercover operations, Zafferano said. The state law that gives the CAMTC the authority to issue massage certiﬁcates, Senate Bill 731, was created in 2009 but Belmont’s massage ordinance has been on the books since 2003. “We need to amend the ordinance to bring it into state law,” Zafferano said. There is also some uncertainty in the state law as to what the city can do when it comes to regulating the industry, Zafferano said. “There is wide disagreement among city attorneys on what a city is allowed to do,” Zafferano said. Councilwoman Coralin Feierbach approves of the moratorium. “We don’t want the city ﬁlled with massage parlors that are not massage parlors,” Feierbach said. “The state has taken local control away.” Councilman Dave Warden wants to give the massage therapists who went to and Community Gatepath, among many others. San Mateo County Supervisor Carole Groom praised the Commission on Disabilities for 20 years of activism. “The ADA is a comprehensive mandate to end discrimination. This is the hardest working commission the county has. They are overly ambitious but accomplish everything they set out to do every year,” Groom said. SamTrans showed off its new buses, more accessible to the disabled than ever before. The new buses have ramps instead of lifts, lower ﬂoors, external announcements, visual message boards and room for two wheelchairs. SamTrans is even offering travel training for people with disabilities, said Hernandez-Lopez did not waive his right to a speedy trial and he was ordered back to court Aug. 4 for a preliminary hearing. His bail was set at $50,000. Police arrested Hernandez-Lopez July 22 after responding to a call of a domestic disturbance. His girlfriend, who is also the mother of his 8-month-old son, told police he had strangled her while trying to smother her at approximately 5 p.m. on the 500 block of Third Lane. She was momentarily able to run from the house but Hernandez-Lopez allegedly caught up and attacked her again in front of others. Lopez allegedly threw the woman to the ground between two possessions that have held them bound to the family home. She calls Avery back to auction off the house and its contents and hires a scribe Arthur (Lance Gardner) to whom to dictate what she remembers of the family history. In the traumatic reunions between the siblings, old grudges and tensions are resolved as mother Alice arms them with her new realization that people are more important than objects and possessions. If there is one thing I would suggest to the playwright it’s to drop the development very close to the end of the play where Arthur professes his love for Aiden. It’s very unexpected, jarring and

are celebrating the fact that there is more accessibility for people with disabilities. We need to work together, though, to create community awareness,” Sinor said.

express an intent to kill her, said Assistant District Attorney Karen Guidotti. Hernandez-Lopez pleaded not guilty to two counts of inflicting corporal injury, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon — one for the beads and one for the pillow — and one count of assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury.
parked cars, choking her and covering her mouth and nose. An unidentiﬁed person intervened, giving the woman the chance to run home to Cedar Place where police were called. Police arrested Hernandez-Lopez and booked him into Maguire Correctional Facility. Police are still searching for witnesses and anyone with information is asked to contact Sgt. Danny Gil at 829-3934.

devoid of almost all, including furniture upon which to sit. Mother Alice has increasing memory losses causing her to forget how the items she is displaying in her bedroom bookcase relate to those things she wishes to remember. The comfort of this family world is uprooted when she decides to make arrangements, before her own death, to free her adult children from the
utterly inconsequential and extraneous to the brilliant thesis of the play. I just can’t say enough about the quality of the acting. Six very powerful actors where Director Meredith McDonough keeps their stage and dialogue pacing going just right. The revolving and stationary sets by Annie Smart are very attractively suitable to the what could be the Ainsley’s home but presents the concern that the need for so many rooms could inhibit the play from making the rounds of many regional and local theaters. That would be a shame.

Many of the wonderful, nonmaterial things in life are likely to offer you great pleasure in the year ahead. It is likely you’ll have many good times and fortunate episodes when with good friends.
leO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Once you make up your mind about
something important, you shouldn’t find a need to alter or adjust your decision if you’ve used good judgment. What you’ve reasoned out should work.
AQuARIuS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Adopt a no-nonsense position if there is something critical you need to work out with others. When those with whom you’re dealing see that you’re serious, they’ll get down to business as well. PISCeS (Feb. 20-March 20) - The only way you are likely to have an old obligation repaid is to give the debtor a reminder, so don’t stand on ceremony. If you do so immediately, chances are you’ll get at least a partial payment. ARIeS (March 21-April 19) - If a friend who has done many
things for you in the past asks for a favor, you won’t hesitate for one minute to come through for him/her. In fact, you’ll welcome the opportunity.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - The fruits of your labor will be good, if after planting your crops, you’ve given them the tender care they needed. Life will give back in proportion to what you put into it at this point in time. lIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - It’s likely to be one of those times
when an unstructured gathering could turn out to be a lot of fun. Sometimes when we expect the least is when we get the most.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - The solution isn’t likely to
come easily, but if everyone is willing to play the role of a peacemaker, the dissension that was created within the household will quickly resolve itself.
TAuRuS (April 20-May 20) - The reason you’ll do so well in a competitive situation is because you’ll put out only what you have to and hold back whatever you can in order to give your all at the finish. GeMINI (May 21-June 20) - Although conditions look hopeful when it comes to something you desire, you’re smart enough to know you still have to apply whatever practical measures are necessary to make your dream a reality. CANCeR (June 21-July 22) - Even if the returns are still
not what you expected from an endeavor in which you’re involved, hang in there. Given enough time, there is an excellent chance they will become more ample. Copyright 2010, United Feature Syndicate, Inc.
SAGITTARIuS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Don’t hesitate to get something off your chest when an appropriate opening occurs, especially if it’s an issue that you’ve been reluctant to thrash out. You’ll never get a better opportunity. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - This could be a betterthan-average day to go shopping for all those essential items

Twin car bombs kill 25 in Iraqi city of Karbala
BAGHDAD — Two car bombs targeting Shiite pilgrims during a religious festival in the holy city of Karbala killed 25 people on Monday, Iraqi police and hospital ofﬁcials said. Sunni extremists are suspected. Militants detonated two parked cars ﬁlled with explosives about two miles (three kilometers) apart as crowds of pilgrims passed by. Police and medical ofﬁcials in Karbala, 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Baghdad, said 68 people were injured in the attacks. The pilgrims were on their way to Karbala to take part in an important religious holiday, known as Shabaniyah, that attracts devout Shiites from around the country. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the Monday bombings, but the method is the hallmark of Sunni extremists. While violence has dropped dramatically in the past years in Iraq, suspected Sunni insurgents regularly target Shiite religious ceremonies and holy places in an attempt to reignite sectarian tensions that brought Iraq to the brink of civil war in 2005 and 2007. The Shabaniyah festival marks the birth of Imam Mohammed al-Mahdi — known as the “Hidden Imam” — a Shiite saint who disappeared in the ninth century, and is held in the middle of the month preceding the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
Fresh doubt about Afghan war
By Robert Burns
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — The monumental leak of classiﬁed Afghan war documents threatened Monday to create deeper doubts about the war at home, cause new friction with Pakistan over allegations about its spy agency and raise questions around the world about Washington’s own ability to protect military secrets. The White House called the disclosures “alarming.” The torrent of more than 91,000 secret documents, one of the largest unauthorized disclosures in military history, sent the Obama administration scrambling to assess and repair any damage to the war effort, either abroad or in the U.S. The material could reinforce the view put forth by the war’s opponents in Congress that one of the nation’s longest conﬂicts is hopelessly stalemated. The leaks come at a time when President Barack Obama’s Afghanistan war strategy is under congressional scrutiny and with polls ﬁnding that a majority of Americans no longer think the war there is worth ﬁghting. Still, the leaks are not expected to prevent passage of a $60 billion war funding bill. Despite strong opposition among liberals who see Afghanistan as an unwinnable quagmire, House Democrats must either approve the bill before leaving at the end of this week for a six-week vacation, or commit political suicide by leaving troops in the lurch in war zones overseas. The Pentagon also was looking at possible damage on the ground in

Afghanistan. “Someone inadvertently or on purpose gave the Taliban its new ‘enemies list,”’ declared Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., who said the White House indicated the disclosures compromised a number of Afghan sources. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs emphasized that the documents covered the period before Obama ordered a major increase in U.S. troops ﬁghting in Afghanistan, and the administration denied they would cause any policy shift in the ﬁght against Taliban insurgents. Indeed, despite the furor over the publication of the reports on the WikiLeaks whistleblower website, the information did not reveal any fundamentally new problems in the war effort. Military ofﬁcers, current and former, described the documents as mostly tactical spot reports, including hunches about possible suspects and bomb plots that couldn’t be veriﬁed. Some of the reports contain errors; others appear to be based on ﬂimsy evidence. Still, much of the material is anything but encouraging. Underscoring the difﬁculties the U.S. faces, the documents include the ﬁrst publicly released indication that the Taliban has used portable surface-to-air missiles against U.S. helicopters.
