Officials: Just say no to pot
San Mateo Union High School District board officially opposes Proposition 19
By Heather Murtagh

Elected officials in the San Mateo Union High School District are taking a stand against a statewide measure that would legalize marijuana for people over 21 years old, arguing passage of Proposition 19 will have negative effects on the

youth it serves. Led by Trustee Peter Hanley, the Board of Trustee unanimously voted Thursday to oppose Proposition 19. The measure,

which goes before California voters this November, would give adults 21 or older the ability to possess up to one ounce of cannabis, to be consumed at home or licensed business establishments. Hanley believes, if passed, the measure would create numerous issues for the district like maintaining a drug-free work environment

and helping children be mindful of negative side effects from using marijuana. “I have become increasingly concerned about the implications [of Proposition 19] for education. I don’t see it being discussed,” he said. Hanley has multiple concerns. First, legalizing marijuana would

allow for more production, in turn lowering prices and making it more accessible to the teens attending schools. “Too many kids are already using. This is a significant part of our discipline,” he said. Proponents of the measure, how-

Going for broke
By Heather Murtagh

SAN FRANCISCO — As California enters its ninth week without a budget, state higher education leaders said Friday the delay is creating financial problems and uncertainty for public colleges and universities. The heads of the University of California, California State University and California Community Colleges said the three systems have not been receiving expected payments from Sacramento and aren’t sure how much they’ll get for the fiscal year that began July 1. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Legislature have not reached agreement on how to close a $19 billion budget shortfall. The impasse

has led to delayed payments to school districts and counties, furloughs of state employees and the prospect of the state issuing IOUs. Arnold California Schwarzenegger Community Colleges Chancellor Jack Scott said the 112-campus system did not receive a $116 million payment in July or a $277 million payment this month. Campuses are dipping into savings or borrowing money to pay employee salaries and other expenses, and further delays could lead some colleges to miss payroll next

Local skaters to compete for cash, street cred Caltrain says weekend
Twenty-year-old Jameel Douglas cleared debris blowing across the concrete park before laying down his skateboard and cruising around. It was a beautiful Redwood City afternoon. Normally the breeze would be appreciated, but the skaters didn’t seem to love it. The small pine pieces on the ground can cause a skateboard to stop quickly, which in turn makes skaters fall. Thankfully it’s all in fun and people are going for big tricks despite the small pine tree menace. Douglas joins in on the care-free afternoon fun. But he isn’t just enjoying a sunny day, he’s preparing for a rematch Saturday to defend his title in the third annual Shredwood Skate Contest. He took first in the street contest, which didn’t have a cash prize last year. However, this year’s winner will walk away with $500 in his or her pocket. The 20-year-old started skating at

Officials at financially-strapped Caltrain said service on the weekends and to Gilroy will likely be maintained despite a $2.3 million deficit. The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board of Directors will meet Thursday in a public hearing to discuss changes to services to meet the budget gap and officials said

although the cuts were considered, the service will likely remain — at least through July. “Based on estimates of the potential cost savings and input from our customers, we would like to preserve these two important services at least until the beginning of the next fiscal year,” noted Caltrain Executive Director Michael Scanlon.

Broken sewer line fixed
By Michelle Durand

Police reports
Lion king
A man carrying a stuffed lion was causing a disturbance at the intersection of Beacon Avenue and South Norfolk Street in San Mateo before 10:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 23.

Crews have repaired a broken pipeline in the Redwood Shores neighborhood and will spend the weekend and next cleaning up the estimated 5,000 gallons of raw sewage that spilled into the adjacent lagoon and six residential garages, according to a Redwood City spokesman. The crews will also fix the parking area and landscaping affected by both the break and three days of repair work. As of Friday afternoon, the concrete pipeline was stable and being monitored, said city spokesman Malcolm Smith. The city is also testing the lagoon to ensure the sewage that did contaminate the water has

dissipated. Residents have been asked to avoid the water and any activities in or on it until further notice and the advisory remains in effect, Smith said. Officials are not sure why the break happened. The pipe dates from the 1980s. At approximately 3 p.m. Wednesday, the pressurized concrete pipe gave way, buckling the asphalt and sending out sewage in the area of Davit Lane and Anchor Circle. By that night, crews were diverting the sewage into trucks for transport to a treatment facility and waiting for a replacement 16-inch pipe. Most of the fix happened by 10 p.m. Thursday night. Now that the pipe is fixed, cleanup crews can also take on cleanup of the six garages filled with muck.

Although raw sewage did pour into the lagoon, none made its way to the Bay because the flushing is controlled by gates and pumps that have not been activated, according to Smith. No illnesses or health concerns were reported as a result of the leak but as expected water tests are turning up high levels of coliform bacteria and E.coli. The amount of sewage originally reported to the San Francisco Regional Water Quality Control Board two hours after the spill was 5,000 gallons but the total is expected to be significantly higher.

Prison for SFO security checkpoint thief

A woman convicted of snatching a purse filled with $3,000 from an X-ray machine bin at San Francisco International Airport was sentenced to 32 months in prison for grant theft. The conviction counts as a second-strike, doubling the 18 months imposed against Charne Letrice Zackery, 39, of Oakland. On Wednesday, Zackery’s defense asked the judge to toss the second-strike allegation but

the request was denied, according to court records clerks. Zackery receives 391 days credit for time served while in custody in lieu of $50,000 bail. Zackery pleaded no contest to the single felony in July, on the day of scheduled jury trial. On Dec. 10, according to the District Attorney’s Office, Zackery was behind the victim in a security line and saw that the woman grabbed her carry-on items from two

bins but forgot to grab her purse from a third after it went through the screening machine. Zackery allegedly took the purse with her belongings to the rest room. When the woman realized her purse was missing, TEA agents reviewed camera footage and tracked down Zackery. Police reported finding the purse in Zackery’s duffel bag, but with only $400 inside. The remaining $2,600 was reportedly in Zackery’s purse. Zackery was convicted in 1992 with robbery. plus to fund the fare postponement.

Yee presses for fair sentencing bill
By Bill Silverfarb

The Assembly unanimously passed and sent to the governor Friday legislation by Assemblyman Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, that would require election officials in a statewide election to include a notice in sample ballots informing voters that they can obtain a voter information guide on the Secretary of State’s Web site. Assembly Bill 814, approved on a 58-0 vote, was introduced by Hill after voter guides failed to arrive at homes in San Mateo County before the June 8 primary. Secretary of State Debra Bowen earlier this month announced that Admail West, the firm hired to mail the guides, admitted it sent duplicate or triplicate guides to voter households in some counties and failed to mail to guides to households in other counties. The reason for the snafu has not been explained. AB 814 would require that the notification in the sample ballot include a telephone number designated by county elections officials where voters can request that a ballot pamphlet be mailed to them. In addition, the bill would require the Secretary of State’s website to be listed on the sample ballot so people can view the voter information guide online. • Legislation by Hill to increase the amount of money low-income Californians receive to retire smog-belching vehicles — from $1,000 to $1,500 — was approved Friday by the Assembly and sent to the governor. Assembly Bill 787 would be paid for by reducing the amount the state provides to Californians to fix vehicles that fail a smog check.

State Sen. Leland Yee has been on a quest for years to end life sentences for juvenile offenders. His legislation, the Fair Sentencing for Youth Act or Senate Bill 399, has repeatedly failed to pass out of the Legislature, however, and suffered yet another defeat earlier this week. SB 399 does not prohibit life without parole sentences for juveniles but allows courts to review cases of juveniles sentenced to life without parole after 15 years, potentially allowing some individuals to receive a new sentence of 25 years to life. The bill failed the state Assembly on a 3436 vote Tuesday but Yee’s office is scrambling to get the bill a second vote before the Legislature ends its session Tuesday, Aug. 31. The bill needs 41 votes to pass. It has the broad support of psychiatry and child advocate groups across the state but is staunchly opposed by the California District Attorneys Association and California Police Chiefs Association. “The neuroscience is clear — brain maturation continues well through adolescence and thus impulse control, planning and critical thinking skills are not yet fully developed,” said Yee, D-San Francisco/San Mateo, who is also a child psychologist. Detractors of the bill argue, however, that the bill would be detrimental to the families

of murder victims. “The penalty of life without parole is reserved for the worst crimes, by the worst criminals. By allowing the defendant a chance at parole, this bill would re-victimize the murder victim’s family, forcing them to re-live the events through court hearings and the parole process,” Sacramento District Attorney Jan Scully said in a prepared statement Tuesday. No other country in the world outside of the United States allows children to be sentenced to life without parole, according to Yee’s office. Currently, there are approximately 250 youth in California serving life without parole, according to Yee’s office. San Mateo County District Attorney Jim Fox said it should be a judge’s discretion whether a life without parole sentence be handed to a juvenile. “Not every juvenile convicted of murder is given the sentence,” Fox said. “Only the most heinous acts are given this sentence.” In the state Assembly, both Jerry Hill and Ira Ruskin supported the bill but Fiona Ma did not.

Ma, D-San Francisco, opposed the bill because of the level of the nature of the crimes and impact to families. “I did not come to my decision on SB 399 easily — it is legislation that I have carefully reviewed and considered for months. While I acknowledge that some juveniles in the correctional system may have the capacity to be rehabilitated after decades of being incarcerated, I feel that we cannot reset a defendant’s clock 25 years later expecting a victim’s family will reset their hearts,” Ma said in a statement. If juveniles need relief, the governor has the power to grant pardons and commute sentences, Ma said. In this past Tuesday’s vote, eight members of the Assembly failed to vote on the bill. Yee’s office will be looking to court most of them to try to get the 41 votes needed for SB 399’s passage.

Church: Minister guilty for marrying gays
By Lisa Leff

SAN FRANCISCO — A retired Presbyterian minister was found guilty of misconduct Friday by a church court for officiating the weddings of 16 gay couples when same-sex marriage was legal in California. A regional commission of the Presbyterian Church (USA) ruled 4-2 that the Rev. Jane Spahr of San Francisco “persisted in a pattern or practice of disobedience” by performing the weddings in 2008 before Proposition 8 banned the unions in the state. The church’s highest court has held that Presbyterian ministers may bless same-sex

unions as long as they do “not state, imply, or represent that a same-sex ceremony is a marriage.” By willfully challenging that holding, Spahr broke her ordination vows, the commission said in its majority opinion. At the same time, however, the tribunal devoted most of its 2 1/2-page ruling to praising the 68-year-old pastor, a lesbian who founded a church group in the early 1990s for gay Presbyterians. Spahr was acknowledged “for her prophetic ministry” and “faithful compassion. The commissioners called on the broader church to use her example “to re-examine our own fear and ignorance.” “In the reality in which we live today, mar-

riage can be between same gender as well as opposite gender persons, and we, as a church, need to be able to respond to this reality as Dr. Jane Spahr has done with faithfulness and compassion,” the ruling stated. The six-member commission representing 54 Northern California churches censured Spahr with a rebuke as punishment. Spahr said she was disappointed by the verdict and would appeal to a midlevel church court. “If you agree with me, then say yes,” Spahr told the Associated Press. “It’s like, ’Janie, we want this to happen and we affirm your ministry and we sustain the charges. The mixed message of that is the thing that people hear. We want the message of the Gospel, which is God’s love is for all.”

DUI checkpoint results in no arrests
San Bruno police held a checkpoint Thursday evening which resulted in testing the sobriety of five drivers but no arrests. A total of 730 vehicles were screened during the hours of 8 p.m. to midnight Thursday, Aug. 26 at a checkpoint located westbound on San Bruno and Traeger avenues, two blocks west of El Camino Real, according to a press release. Although five drivers had been drinking, none had drank enough to be impaired, said Cmdr. Marc Catalano. Officers issued seven citations to unlicensed drivers and one violation for driving with a suspended license. Seven cars were impounded. The goal of the checkpoint was to deter and arrest motorists who were driving under the influence and to help ensure the safety of all motorists. People are encouraged to report drunk drivers by calling 911, describing the vehicle, location and direction of travel to make your community safer. Funding to cover personnel costs for the checkpoint were covered using a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety.

was arrested separately and already appeared in court. Resendez and Bustos-Mendez, like Herrera before them, pleaded not guilty Friday and were ordered back to court Aug. 31. Prosecutors charged Resendez as an adult because of his age — just shy of 18 — and their belief he wielded the gun, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. According to authorities, the three defendants and a minor robbed a Shell gas station on Hickey Boulevard in Pacifica at 8:22 p.m. last Friday. Herrera drove the group in a Toyota stolen from Sunnyvale and acted as lookout while the others went inside, Wagstaffe said. When the clerk was slow opening the register, Resendez allegedly shot him four times in the legs before the group fled without taking any cash. The group then headed to South San Francisco where they allegedly robbed at gunpoint a 7-Eleven store on Callan Boulevard, using the same method of Herrera as lookout. In Colma, Wagstaffe said the group approached a taxi driver wanting to take the cab as a new vehicle. One person, still unidentified, reportedly tried to stab the driver in the neck but hit his hand when he put it up in defense. They fled again and were later spotted by Daly City police who recognized the vehicle from reports of the earlier incidents and a stolen car report from Sunnyvale. The group jumped from the car and police later discovered the handgun about 20 yards away and Herrera in the backyard of a nearby residence. Police also arrested the other minor but prosecutors have not charged him. “He has his own separate, unrelated case and is at juvenile hall,” Wagstaffe said. Prosecutors could charge him at a later point, once his previous case is resolved, he said.

Teens charged for shooting,crime spree Bills aim to speed up kidnapping response
By Michelle Durand

Prosecutors charged two teens Friday for what they say was a multi-city crime spree, including a coastside shooting of a gas station clerk, the slashing of a taxi driver and armed robberies. Alleged ringleader and shooter Ronald Resendez, 17, of Oakland, and Daniel Bustos-Mendez, 18, of Menlo Park were the last of four suspects arrested Wednesday night in Menlo Park. On Friday, they appeared in a San Mateo County courthouse to faces seven felonies each: attempted robbery, attempted murder with premeditation and deliberation, assault with a semi-automatic firearm, two counts of robbery, one count of attempted carjacking and vehicle theft. Resendez was also alleged to have personally used a firearm. The charges echo those already filed against Robert John Herrera, of Pacifica, who

SACRAMENTO — The state Assembly on Friday unanimously approved three bills aimed at speeding up law enforcement response to missing persons reports in the wake of two killings of teenage girls in San Diego by a convicted sex offender. The bills now go to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for his signature. The first, AB33, supports uniform guidelines on how Arnold police should respond to missing persons reports, Schwarzenegger including directing the state Department of Justice to create a list of possible suspects if a child is believed to have been abducted by a stranger. A companion measure, AB34, requires the state’s Violent Crime Information Center to send information about a reported abduction to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons system within two hours.

Dead woman’s home ransacked
After a Monday memorial for Lee Simpson Kavanaugh, a Hillsborough woman who died Aug. 9, family and friends discovered thieves made off with a Édouard Leon Cortès painting from her Ascot Road home. Kavanaugh’s memorial was at 3 p.m. Aug. 23, at the St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Burlingame. When family returned to Kavanaugh’s home after the memorial they discovered it had been ransacked, with jewelry, antique clocks, china dinnerware and a 2003 Toyota Camry stolen from the property, said acting Hillsborough police Capt. Caroline Serrato. The family called the Hillsborough Police Department 5 p.m. Monday but police have yet to determine exactly when the bandits made off with the loot. The Cortès painting, of a Paris street scene, is insured for $100,000 and the FBI have been brought in to help with the investigation, Serrato said.

ing the sewage into trucks. By noon Thursday, the pipeline was excavated. However, the 16-inch pipe in need of repair is an unusual size which made estimating a repair timeline difficult, Smith said.

Garbage workers strike
Garbage workers in San Mateo County started a 48-hour strike Wednesday to protest stalled contract negotiations with Allied Waste Industries, a company spokeswoman said. Thirteen workers at the Ox Mountain Landfill near Half Moon Bay are participating in a two-day strike over negotiations that have stalled since their contract expired at the end of 2009, Allied Waste spokeswoman Peg Mulloy said. An additional 250 workers, mostly truck drivers and garbage collectors based at the company’s San Carlos facility, have decided to walk off the job in solidarity with their 13 colleagues.

Sewage spills into lagoon
A ruptured sewer main poured an estimated 5,000 gallons of waste into the Redwood Shores lagoon before the break was uncovered. The sewage was being pumped into tanker trucks and taken to a nearby treatment plan while residents are urged to avoid lagoon water. The pressurized concrete pipeline which dates from the 1980s burst at approximately 3 p.m. Wednesday in the area of Davit Lane and Anchor Circle. Workers aren’t really sure why the pipeline cracked but it looks like the bottom of it gave way, said city spokesman Malcolm Smith. “It’s pretty perplexing actually,” he said. The pressure buckled the asphalt, spewing raw sewage into six residential garages and the nearby Redwood Shores lagoon. By nightfall, public works crews were divert-

SAN FRANCISCO — USA Today, the nation’s second largest newspaper, is making the most dramatic overhaul of its staff in its 28year history as it de-emphasizes its print edition and ramps up its effort to reach more readers and advertisers on mobile devices. The makeover outlined Thursday will result in about 130 layoffs this fall, USA Today Publisher Dave Hunke told the Associated Press. That translates into a 9 percent reduction in USA Today’s work force of 1,500 employees. Hunke didn’t specify which departments would be hardest hit. The management shake-up affects both the newspaper’s business operations and newsroom. Like most newspapers, Gannett Co.’s USA Today has been cutting back in recent years to offset a steep drop in advertising that is depleting

its main source of income. To compound the problem, fewer readers are paying for newspapers as free news proliferates on the Web. Those challenges triggered the most dramatic reorganization since USA Today first hit the streets in 1982 with a then-unique blend of shorter stories surrounded by colorful graphics and pictures. “This is pretty radical,” Hunke said of the shake-up. “This gets us ready for our next quarter century.” In the first wave of change, USA Today, which is based in McLean, Va., will no longer have separate managing editors overseeing its News, Sports, Money and Life sections.

The newsroom instead will be broken up into a cluster of “content rings” each headed up by editors who will be appointed later this year. The newly created content group will be overseen by Susan Weiss, who had been managing editor of the Life section. As executive editor of content, Weiss will report to USA Today Editor John Hillkirk. “We’ll focus less on print ... and more on producing content for all platforms (Web, mobile, iPad and other digital formats),” according to a slide show presented Thursday to USA Today’s staff. The AP obtained copy of the presentation. Given the downhill trajectory of the print newspaper business, a strategy that puts the Web and mobile first makes sense, says Ken Doctor, a media analyst with Outsell Inc. “The entire organization is set up to put out a daily newspaper and then do this all other stuff,” he said. “That’s not going to work any more.”

DA drops fake bomb threat case
Prosecutors dropped a felony bomb scare charge against a coastside man who had already pleaded no contest after determining his was not the voice threatening to blow up Caltrain. Antonio Derivera Santiago III, 26, of Pacifica, was first allowed to withdraw his no contest plea Wednesday and then prosecutor Melissa McKowan asked that the case be dropped outright. Prosecutors had believed for more than a year that Santiago called Caltrain out of boredom, telling a customer service representative that there was a bomb on train 101 and prompting an evacuation and fullscale search.

Facebook sued over teen endorsements

LOS ANGELES — Two Los Angeles County teenagers are suing Facebook, claiming the social network effectively sold their names and images to advertisers without parental permission. The lawsuit filed Thursday in Los Angeles challenges a Facebook feature that allows members to note

that they like an advertised service or product. Facebook broadcasts those endorsements to the user’s friends. The lawsuit also claims minors unwittingly endorse Facebook when people typing their names in a search engine are steered to a Facebook sign-up page. The plaintiffs say Palo Alto-based

Facebook is violating a California law that requires parental consent for children to make commercial endorsements. The teens seek unspecified damages. Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes says the lawsuit is meritless. He notes Facebook doesn’t allow users under 18 to let their profiles appear on public search engines.

Agendas and endgames
f there is anything that delineates the differences in the agendas of the two major parties, it was the debate in the House of Representatives over the passage of health care reform bill. As the parties alternated speakers, they produced a case history that could become required reading in political science classes. The Democrats were using arguments that hinged upon the human issue, that medical care is a human “right” for all Americans and illustrated case after case of those who died for lack of access to quality medical care and those who were refused access or dumped from the rolls of “for-profit” medical and insurance companies. There was no consideration given to the potential financial toll from this legislation. On the other hand, the Republican debaters hinged upon only the economic issues, using the terms “socialist” and “governmental intrusions into the economic system,” freely, as the basis for their opposition. Let alone the humanity, no mention was even made of the possible negative consequences of having those without health care and their children who, for the most part, go to the same schools as their own children, becoming health risks to all. A summary of their positions was illustrated by their chief spokesman, Rush Limbaugh, who, in an interview, declared that people who can afford second homes on the beach can afford, and deserve, the best of health care, while those who are able only to buy bungalows in town should get only the quality of health care they can afford. Notable in this interview is he said nothing about those who can’t even afford a bungalow. Being a Darwinist politically, presumably, he is saying they don’t even deserve to live, at all, in our market economy if they can’t afford to buy even minimal health care. It was, also, notable that while, with the exception of one Jewish legislator, the Republican aggregation was universally “white bread,” the Democrats were a rainbow of ethnicity and race. The agendas of the two parties, since the Roosevelt era, have been for the Democrats to say, “Help the people first, then figure out the ways to pay for it.” That led to varying taxation policies that the Republicans have perennially argued blunts the growth of the national economic system. It is clear that the Democrats mostly favor the “people,” especially the middle class and the poor,

‘Any nation that believes that one can pump up the wealthy and ignore the middle class and poor is courting revolution.’
while the national Republicans mostly carry the ball for the economic system, especially those at the top and call the former statists, socialists and worse, with an agenda to destroy capitalism. Which, from a national point of view, is the most correct? Really both. Any nation that believes that one can pump up the wealthy and ignore the middle class and poor is courting revolution. That is what Cuba, with a population of 8 million and an army of 25,000 (reputedly equipped by the United States) had been doing with a 92 percent poverty population, which eased the Castro takeover of the island with only 67 followers. That is what sank the czar in Russia, when the small middle class revolted, only to be taken over by the Bolsheviks. That is what Imperial China suffered when it continued to entertain a warlord/coolie economic system that brought on the ruthless Mao and his followers. On the other hand, there needs to be recognition that our country does not have sufficient “deep pockets” to fund all social programs, no matter how desirable. Of course, the United States is far from such revolutionary conditions, but the middle class and poor do continue to suffer the most every time there is a boom/bust in the economy, while the upper economic classes continue to recover rapidly and with élan. And the unemployed continue to bear the brunt of the misdeeds of financial institutions. This nation is in a definitive political and economic crisis. The issue still on the front burner is whether the government “of the people” is still able to continue to provide for the welfare of its citizens or whether super wealthy business entities and individuals by generous political contributions to ever grateful legislators are able to abort these efforts in the future. I am not exaggerating. Especially since Ronald Reagan, these entities have been able to bring pressure to bear through political contributions, public relations and conservative talk show hosts, who are earning millions for the joy and privilege of shooting a president down with mischaracterizations, misinformation and invectives. So how is the conservative agenda carried out? As I have written before, it started with Ronald Reagan, whose policies were shipping more of the nation’s wealth to the upper 1 percent of the population. I was seeing the beginnings of deregulation, when my years of business experience taught me that was very naïve and that, not most, but too many business and financial leaders were greedy and not trustworthy and deregulation would leave the public naked to their predatory cannibalism. Witness: Bernie Madoff, AIG, Enron, Stanford and a host of other embezzlers and reprobates at the financial institutions who gambled away the money of others. What’s wrong with people getting so much richer? For one, ambitious people in the very expensive political campaigns of this era are able to fund their own campaigns. Witness: U.S. Rep. Michael Huffington’s $27 million self-funding for a U.S. Senate race, when even his own disgusted congressional district voted solidly against him in the election. How about in our own state of California, billionaires Meg Whitman and Steve Poizner had overwhelming personal funds to run in the Republican primary for the race for governor that drove out the far more experienced ex-congressman, ex-state senator, ex-state budget director but only a relatively poor college professor, Tom Campbell. And it has been reported that Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City, could put a billion bucks of his own money in a race for the presidency if he willed. Let’s recall: Teddy Roosevelt and Franklin Roosevelt each took on those wealthy “barons of business” and corporate entities and, in effect, brought the people’s government back to the “people.” Does the current president have the moxie and the guts as the two Roosevelts to, again, shoot down the misplaced financial power and greed, so the “people’s government” may be totally sovereign again? So far, it doesn’t look as if he does. So with the help of the conservative block in the Supreme Court, we may all look forward to a rule of the oligarchs, the wealthy, who

will be able to buy the elections and the legislators who will do their bidding. ••• THE ENDGAME: THE 2010 ELECTIONS ... So what is the conservative endgame to recoup power in the upcoming 2010 elections? What to do? What to say? Well, first, keep the attention of the plundered public focused on illegal immigration, employment slackers, welfare cheaters, the minuscule amount of foreign aid this nation provides and the alleged “state-controlled media” and keep them away from thinking about the outrageous conduct in the financial and banking fields, billions of dollars extorted from a trusting public and keep them agonizing, instead, over some unfortunate escapees from Latin American poverty, scratching out a few bucks, by comparison, from the public treasury. Drop the birth and religious issues, the health and financial regulation legislation. They’ve all out used their usefulness. Concentrate only on the employment issues, the ones that touch just about everyone. That’s the winner! You couldn’t get more cynical. They’ve got the administration coming and going. They full well know that the president and his administration cannot force private employers to rehire and, if it creates jobs with public funding, their cry will be, “more government spending, more government intrusion, exacerbating the deficit. “Oh, yah, baby! That’s the winner!” Keep deflecting all other press questions to beating on that issue. Will that endgame work? Keep tuned.

Thank you for sharing his ideas with us. is that there’s not enough funding for transit on the Peninsula. No matter what type of trains you run. Like Caltrain, BART requires tax subsidy for operation. The reason you don’t see BART having the same financial situation is because BART collects a 50 percent sales tax (which was imposed by the state Legislature) in San Francisco, Alameda and Contra Costa counties for operations. Caltrain does not directly collect taxes but rather rely on the three local transit agencies. BART could go around the Bay, but will not do it with the funding that Caltrain currently receives. BART would likely require more than a 50 percent sales tax for

Half of BART’s ridership crosses the Bay, where the only competition is the Bay Bridge that requires a toll. Caltrain rather has to compete with two freeways (Highway 101 and Interstate 280). At the end, what riders want is a well-functioning transit network. Both BART and Caltrain still have ways to go to reach their potential. Portraying the issue as a competition won’t help us get there.

Stocks post big gains
By Seth Sutel and J.W. Elphinstone

Wall Street
“It could have been worse, and because it wasn’t, that was good news,” said Alan Gayle, senior investment strategist for RidgeWorth Investments, based in Richmond, Va. “Clearly the bar is being lowered for what constitutes good news these days.” The upturn was a respite from a mainly dismal month on the stock market, which has been falling steadily since its recent high reached on Aug. 9 on a series of poor indicators on the economy. A deep slump in home sales last month was the latest sign that the economy was weakening. The market stumbled briefly in midmorning after Intel Corp. lowered its revenue estimate. There, too, the news wasn’t as bad as it could have been. Intel’s shares edged higher after resuming trading since the company’s new forecast wasn’t as bad as the worst esti-

NEW YORK — Stocks posted big gains after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the central bank was ready to step in if the U.S. economy showed further signs of weakening. Traders were also encouraged by a downward revision in second-quarter economic growth Friday that wasn’t as bad as economists had expected. The Dow Jones industrial average and other indexes all gained more than 1 percent. Bernanke said in a speech at the Fed’s annual conference that while the economic recovery remains tentative, the central bank remains ready to take extra steps to stimulate the economy if necessary, such as buying more debt securities in order to keep interest rates low. He said he still expects the economy to grow next year.

mates circulating among analysts. In economic news, the Commerce Department reported that gross domestic product grew at a 1.6 percent rate in the April-to-June period. That’s still way down from its earlier estimate of 2.4 percent but not as bad as the 1.4 percent expected by economists. “These are terrible numbers,” Kim Caughey, equity research analyst at Fort Pitt Capital Group in Pittsburgh, said. “But they weren’t frighteningly horrible.” Yields on Treasurys, which help set interest rates on loans like mortgages, rose sharply as their prices fell. That could put upward pressure on mortgage rates, which are still at historic lows. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 164.84, or 1.7 percent, to close at 10,150.65. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index rose 17.37, or 1.7 percent, to 1,064.59 and the Nasdaq composite index rose 34.94, or 1.6 percent, to 2,153.63.

Economic growth slows to 1.6 pct.in the spring
By Christopher S. Rugaber

WASHINGTON — The economy grew at a much slower pace this spring than previously estimated, mostly due to the largest surge in imports in 26 years and a slowdown in companies’ restocking of goods. The nation’s gross domestic product — the broadest measure of the econo-

my’s output — grew at a 1.6 percent annual rate in the April-to-June period, the Commerce Department said Friday. That’s down from an initial estimate of 2.4 percent last month and much slower than the first quarter’s 3.7 percent pace. The revision follows a week of disappointing economic reports. The housing sector is slumping badly after the expiration of a government homebuyer tax credit. And business spending on big-

ticket manufactured items such as machinery and software, an important source of growth earlier this year, is also tapering off. As a result, most analysts expect the economy will grow at a similarly weak pace for the rest of this year. “We seem to be in the early stages of what might be called a ‘growth recession’,” said Ethan Harris, an economist at Bank of America-Merrill Lynch.

HP boosts bid for 3Par to $1.88B, topping Dell

SEATTLE — Hewlett-Packard Co. boosted its bid for 3Par Inc. to $1.88 billion Friday, topping Dell Inc.’s offer by 11 percent and again raising the stakes in the bidding contest for the data-storage company. The $30-per-share offer from HP came just hours after Dell matched HP’s

Thursday bid of $27 per share. The latest price is three times what 3Par was trading at before Dell made its first bid last week, for $18 per share, or $1.13 billion. Dell and 3Par said earlier Friday that 3Par’s board had accepted the latest bid from Dell, which only has to match the terms of other offers under its initial agreement with 3Par, which is based in Fremont, Calif.

On Friday, 3Par shares surged $6.43, or 25 percent, to $32.46. That’s above HP’s latest offer price, signaling that investors expect Dell to respond. In a statement, Dell spokesman David Frink said the company will review HP’s latest offer and “act in the best interests of our customers, shareholders and long-term value creation.”

Backs will lead Bearcats
By Nathan Mollat

Menlo makes most of talent
By Emanuel Lee

The San Mateo football team appears set at the skill positions. The Bearcats return two of the top running backs in the Peninsula Athletic League, have a strongarmed, first-year starting quarterback and a slew of sure-handed pass catchers. The Bearcats’ biggest question mark? The offensive line. “We have a lot of inexperience on the offensive line. That’s a big thing for us,” said San Mateo coach Jeff Scheller. “It’s pretty much a new offensive line.” The good news for the Bearcats is a shaky offensive line may not matter, as least as far as the running game goes. George Naufahu and Moto Filikitonga are going into their third year at the varsity level and, for the first time, they will be asked to carry the running back load. Naufahu had a breakout year in 2009, but was helped by the presence of the electric David Rango. Filikitonga, who showed flashes of brilliance the last two years, was mostly a defensive playmaker last season. While both will also start on defense, it’s at running back where they need to make the biggest impact. Both guys are big and strong — Naufahu is more a between-thetackles runner, while Filikitonga is most effective on the outside. Both can run inside and outside, however. “Our running backs can make something out of nothing,” Scheller said. “We’re not going to see a lot of solo tackles on these guys.” Joining them in the backfield will be fullbacks Gary Vimahi and Michael Latu. All four of these runners are at least 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. “[Latu] would be a starter on any other team in the PAL,” Scheller said. “I’ll put my running backs up against anyone in CCS.”

The Menlo School football team is coming off the most successful season in school history, not only winning a game in the Central Coast Section playoffs but advancing all the way to the Division IV championship contest. So what can the Knights do for an encore? “We’ll see,” said Mark Newton, who is entering his seventh year as Menlo’s coach. “We’ve got some good players, but at Menlo, it’s always a matter of depth. If we’re fortunate to stay healthy, we’ve got a shot to do some things. If not, then it’ll be a little interesting at times.” The Knights are always an intriguing story, for the simple fact that they consistently maximize their potential — and at times exceed it — perhaps more than any other team in San Mateo County. They never have a huge turnout and their players are generally smaller than most elite squads, but by the end of the season they’re usually in the mix for a division — and in the case of last year, a section — title. This season should be no exception. Menlo’s pursuit of an Ocean Division championship starts at quarterback. While some high schools can get away with having an average signal-caller, the Knights can’t because they operate the run-andshoot offense. Menlo lost one of its all-time best QBs in Danny Diekroeger, who was among the state’s best last year after passing for over 4,000 yards and 36 touchdowns. But Newton feels confident with senior Robert Wickers, even though as the backup last year he only took a handful of snaps. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Wickers has impressed Newton with his play and decision-making in summer league passing

Second-year wide receivers highlight Battle of the Bay
By Josh Dubow

Female football coach loses debut

OAKLAND — Ever since the Oakland Raiders surprised everyone by taking Darrius Heyward-Bey ahead of Michael Crabtree in last year’s draft it was inevitable that the two receivers would be compared throughout their careers. That became the case even more when Crabtree went three picks later to the team across the bay, the San Francisco 49ers. The two second-year receivers will meet on the field for the first time Saturday night

when the Raiders host the Niners in the annual Battle of the Bay exhibition game. “I haven’t even thought about that,” H ey wa r d - B ey Michael said. “There’s Crabtree no reason to think about it. I’m focused on this team, this offense and what we have to do for this team and the Raider nation.”

The comparisons were rather one-sided last year even though Crabtree missed five games in a lengthy holdout that was partly attributable to Darrius Heyward-Bey his desire to be the highest-paid receiver in the draft despite being picked after Heyward-Bey. Heyward-Bey finished his rookie

WASHINGTON — When the whistle blew and the opening kickoff sailed through the air on a beautiful late-summer night, Natalie Randolph could finally take a deep breath and focus on the thing she wants to do most — coach football. After months in the media spotlight, Randolph made her debut Friday night leading the Colts of Coolidge Senior High School. She is believed to be the nation’s only female head coach of a high school varsity team. But there was no Hollywood ending on this night, as the Colts were thumped 28-0 by Carroll High, a

rude awakening that Randolph shook off with her usual placidity. “It’s a football game. Like I told the kids, we played a football game, we hapNatalie pened to lose, Randolph and we move on,” she said during a post-game press conference that included ESPN, Forbes and a throng of reporters and cameramen from the D.C. metro area.

Oakland no match for Texas

MLB Notebook
Strasburg likely to have Tommy John surgery on elbow
WASHINGTON — Stephen Strasburg had to get through a few hours of anger, confusion and certainly a few more volatile emotions before he was ready to accept the sobering news expressed in three disheartening words. Tommy John surgery. The Washington Nationals rookie sensation is done for the season — and maybe next season as well — after the team announced Friday that he Stephen has a torn ligament in his Strasburg right elbow. He will travel Saturday to the West Coast for a second opinion, but the 22-year-old righthander has accepted the fact that he will need the ligament replacement operation that requires 12 to 18 months of rehabilitation. It’s a blow to Strasburg, of course, and to a baseball world that has spent the summer gasping in awe at his 100 mph fastball, bending curves and wicked batter-freezing changeups, but the biggest punch to the gut is to a Nationals franchise that had made the young phenom the centerpiece in their plans to climb out of perpetual last-place irrelevancy.

Rangers 7, A’s 3
the warning track in left field of a drive by Mark Ellis in the ninth. Andres Blanco and Julio Borbon, the Nos. 8 and 9 batters in the Rangers order, added three hits each as Texas won for the fifth time in six games to maintain the Josh Hamilton largest lead in the majors. Kevin Kouzmanoff had a two-run homer in the sixth and Daric Barton connected with the bases empty in the eighth for the A’s, who’ve lost four of six. Speed was a weapon for the Rangers again in the second with three straight infield singles, the last by Elvis Andrus to produce their fourth run. Anderson was removed after two innings with a hyperextended right knee after allowing four runs and six hits. His right foot landed in a hole on the mound during his follow-through on a pitch to Borbon in the second. Anderson fell awkwardly, and a trainer and manager Bob Geren ran into the field to check on Anderson. After throwing a couple of practice pitches,

ARLINGTON, Texas — Tommy Hunter pitched into the eighth inning, Josh Hamilton had his 24th three-hit game of the season, and the AL West-leading Texas Rangers pulled farther away from the Athletics with a 7-3 victory over Oakland on Friday night. Hunter (11-2) improved to 7-0 in nine starts at Rangers Ballpark this season, allowing three runs and seven hits with four strikeouts and two walks before leaving with two outs in the seventh. The Rangers increased their division advantage over the second-place A’s to 9 1/2 games. Hamilton raised his major league-high average to .358 and demonstrated his speed in the first when he scored from second on an infield single. Hamilton’s dash home highlighted a three-run first off Brett Anderson (3-5). Hamilton doubled with two outs, then rounded third on Vladimir Guerrero’s single off the glove of first baseman Barton. Second baseman Ellis retrieved the ball in short right field and fired to the plate, where Hamilton slid head-first ahead of catcher Kurt Suzuki’s tag. Hamilton also made a tough, running catch on

Anderson remained in the game, but was replaced by Boof Bonser to begin the third. Texas made it 7-0 in the fourth on Michael Young’s two-run double and Hamilton’s RBI single. Rangers right-hander Frank Francisco left the game in the ninth with an arm problem after walking the leadoff man. Francisco was making his first appearance since a cortisone shot in his right armpit on Monday. NOTES: Rangers LHP Cliff Lee will take his regular turn Tuesday night in Kansas City despite an 8.39 ERA over his last four starts. The Rangers have considered extra rest for Lee, who’s gone at least seven innings in 19 of his 23 starts this season. Lee says he doesn’t need a break, and manager Ron Washington will go with the current rotation for now. ... RHP Ben Sheets joined his A’s teammates for the first time since extensive surgery on his right elbow on Aug. 9, unsure of his future in baseball. He knows he probably won’t be able to take the mound in 2011 as he faces a rehab of from 12 to 18 months. As for 2012, Sheets said he’s open to resuming his career depending on his level of recovery.

Lincecum shaky, offense MIA

White Sox awarded waiver claim on Dodgers’ Ramirez
CHICAGO — Manny Ramirez could soon find himself in another AL pennant race. A person with knowledge of the situation told the Associated Press on Friday that the Chicago White Sox have been awarded a waiver claim that gives them exclusive bargaining rights to the Los Angeles Dodgers slugger. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made. Manny Ramirez The White Sox and Dodgers have until 1:30 p.m. EDT on Tuesday to complete a trade. The Dodgers could also let Ramirez go and the White Sox would assume all his salary, or they could keep Ramirez if they believe they’re still in contention for a playoff spot. The 38-year-old former Indians and Red Sox star joined the Dodgers in 2008.

D-backs 6, Giants 0
of their previous 13 games before jumping on Lincecum and the Giants early. LaRoche provided the big blow with a threerun homer off Lincecum in the first inning, his 22nd of the year. LaRoche is batting .326 with eight home runs in August and needs six RBIs to break the franchise record for first basemen. Lincecum (11-9) has tried just about everything to break his slump but hasn’t had much luck. The right-hander wore striped stirrups for the first time this season but opened the game with a four-pitch walk to Drew. He struck out the next two batters then walked Chris Young before LaRoche homered on a 1-2 pitch into McCovey Cove. The Diamondbacks tacked on another run off

SAN FRANCISCO — Tim Lincecum lost his fifth straight start, and Barry Enright and two relievers combined on a seven-hit shutout for the Arizona Diamondbacks in a 6-0 win over the San Francisco Giants on Friday night. Lincecum has never lost five starts in a row before. His ERA in August is 7.82. The winner of the last two NL Cy Young awards, Lincecum gave up four runs on five hits in six innings. Adam LaRoche homered, and Stephen Drew doubled, tripled and scored three times for Arizona, which snapped a seven-game losing streak to San Francisco. The loss dropped San Francisco one-half game behind Philadelphia in the NL wild card race. The Diamondbacks entered the night with the third-worst record in baseball and had lost nine

Lincecum in the third when Drew tripled and scored on Justin Upton’s sacrifice fly. Since opening the season 5-0 with a 1.76 ERA, Lincecum has struggled more than at any other time in his career. He hasn’t won since July 30 and is 6-9 with a 4.80 ERA over his last 19 starts. While Lincecum was struggling, Enright was stellar in his second start against the Giants this season. The rookie right-hander pitched out of a twoon, one-out jam in the third and got plenty of backing from Arizona’s defense. The Diamondbacks turned a 3-6-1 double play in the second and left fielder Gerardo Parra made a diving catch on Pat Burrell’s sinking line drive in the fourth. San Francisco put two runners on base again in the fifth but Enright (5-2) struck out Buster Posey.


have more options. R.J. Asuncion (a returning senior) will provide the leadership while newcomers Andrew Ho (a junior) and Larry Campbell (a sophomore) have playmaking abilities. “[Ho is] a phenomenal athlete,” Scheller said. “Campbell is a speed guy.” Another option would be tight end Alex Strathearn, a 6-foot-3, 195pound junior, who might be the best athlete on the team. He also plays basketball and baseball. “He has great hands,” Scheller said. “He’s a much better pass receiver than we had last year. If we had to be a passing team, I would be OK with it. We have guys who proved it in 7-on-7 (passing league) in the summer. If we can be balanced, it will be tough for teams to beat us.” While the offensive line is mostly a work in progress, the Bearcats do have one returner: Tim Niupalau, a 6foot-1, 250-pound junior. He played varsity last year and Scheller was surprised when he played well enough to start — on both offense and defense. “We’re trying different combinations,” Scheller said. “One-on-one blocks are key for us.” The defensive line is pretty much in the same shape as the offensive line, but Scheller said the team is a bit deeper on defense. It will be anchored by Niupalau and Vimahi. “We’re young, inexperienced (on the defensive line). We lost a lot of guys,” Scheller said. “The defensive line is going to be a platoon (system).” As long as the defensive line can hold its own, the Bearcats should be in OK shape because they will have one of the strongest linebacking corps in the league. Latu and Naufahu can both bring it physically. Add in Filikitonga from his strong safety position and the Bearcats will dish out the punishment. “[Filikitonga] will pretty much anchor the defense. He’ll play strong safety and he’ll be everywhere,” Scheller said. “He’d fit in as a linebacker. He got a lot bigger over the summer. He covers the pass so well and is so fast to the line of scrimmage. He’s played the position for the last two years and everything has slowed down.”

The Bearcats will be breaking in a new quarterback this season in Chris Zografos, who was Mitch Labbie’s backup last year. While he saw very little playing time, Scheller credits Zografos’ play in practice as a key reason to Labbie’s development last year when the Bearcats won the Ocean Division title, took back “The Paw” from Burlingame for the first time since 2004 and advanced to the Central Coast Section Division III semifinals. “[Zografos] was the reason Mitch upped his game (last season). He pushed Mitch. He has that competitive instinct. He loves football. He’s always practicing out there,” Scheller said. “Chris … definitely has the tools. He has a stronger arm.” Scheller likes his team’s passing attack because he believes he has the wideouts to make it work. Last year, Johnny Niupalau was the prime target, but this season, Zografos should

season with nine catches for 124 yards and one touchdown before missing the final five games with a foot injury. Crabtree had 48 catches for 625 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games — only adding fuel to the critics who questioned why the Raiders passed up the more accomplished Crabtree for the speedier Heyward-Bey. The idea of altering that perception with a strong performance Saturday is the last thing on Heyward-Bey’s mind. “I play offense, he plays offense. He has nothing to do with me,” Heyward-Bey said. Heyward-Bey has looked much improved so

far this season on the practice field but that has yet to carry over to games. He played briefly in the exhibition opener and did not catch the only ball thrown his direction. He missed last week’s game in Chicago with what coach Tom Cable called “fatigue.” Heyward-Bey returned to practice this week and looked refreshed. “I think the sky’s the limit for the young man,” new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said. “I just think he needs to go play and I think he will this week. ... I’m excited about watching a lot of our pieces finally come out and play together for an extended period of time and see where we are.” This game gives Jackson his first look at running back Darren McFadden and backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski this preseason after the two missed the first two games with injuries. The Niners also will get their first look this pre-

season at some key offensive players in running backs Brian Westbrook and Frank Gore, and Crabtree, who missed the first two games with a sore neck. After Crabtree missed training camp last year in his holdout, the Niners were hoping to have him on the field as much as possible this summer so they could work on using him in different spots to get him open. “His work has been good, his improvement has been good,” 49ers offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye said. “I think he’s such a natural football player, he’ll play good. The nuances of the things that we mess up or miss in terms of formations and adjustments, the coverage, those are the things that are of concern right now. Understanding where the hots are, if he’s out of position where he normally plays, which he will be some to try to create matchups for him. The

nuances of learning to do all of that and the quarterback being comfortable, that is where we have to make some hay here in the next 10 days or so.” This is the first of two meetings between the teams this year. They will also play in the regular season Oct. 17 in Candlestick Park, meaning both teams will show even less of their playbook than usual for a preseason game. The regular season game also likely played a role in why the teams did not hold joint practices this year as they had the previous two training camps. “It’s probably much less of a deal because we play them in the regular season,” Niners quarterback Alex Smith said. “Whoever wins this game, its going to be all for nothing unless you get it done during the regular season. I mean, obviously, you want to go out there and play well, but we all know the big one is coming a few weeks later.”

camps and in practice. But Newton acknowledges things will be a little more challenging in live game action. “It’s a different ball game when you put on the pads and have guys coming after you, but from what I’ve seen, Robert should be very effective,” Newton said. “He’s got excellent feet, good pocket awareness and he’s accurate. Danny was pretty remarkable for us, but I feel Robert is poised to be one of, if not the best, QBs on the Peninsula.” This much is certain: The Knights have a receiving core that might rival any group in San Mateo County. Menlo returns Tim Benton, who had over 1,200 yards receiving a season ago. Benton has it all, from route running to underrated speed to being able to make the tough catches in traffic. But Newton was quick to point out that Benton isn’t the only threat on the outside. In fact, Newton said returning players Jordan Williams, Phil Anderson, Jack Suiter and John Shanley, along with newcomers Chris Reed and Tommy Ford, all will be viable options for Wickers to throw to. Menlo also returns senior tailback Beau Nichols, whose ability to break off big runs keep defenses honest and gives the team tremendous offensive balance. Nichols also is stalwart at linebacker, and other key players on defense include defensive end Mafileo Tupou, nose tackle Nathan Rosenblum and cornerback Williams. Tupou and Rosenblum are always stout when it comes to run

defense, but they’re equally dangerous when it comes to pressuring the opposing team’s quarterback, who likely won’t be throwing Williams’ way. “More so this year, I don’t see many teams looking to throw in his direction,” Newton said. “Jordan covers the best receiver on the opposing team and is also very good at run defense as well. He’s a comwe’re going to look at the tape, find out what we missed, what we have to do, and we’re going to do it.” Carroll running back Duane Thompson, who had a 29-yard touchdown run for the Lions, said his team did not make a big deal out of Randolph’s presence. “When it all comes down to it, it’s 11 men on 11 men, and we’re out there playing,” he said. “It has nothing to do with her.” On this night, however, it had everything to do with her, even if Randolph did not want to admit it. “This is just a football game,” she said. “The only reason that everyone plete cornerback.” Traditionally, the Knights have a high-scoring offense but an average defense. However, Newton feels this year the team could have a defensive breakthrough. “Last year we had a lot of guys (on defense) playing out of position,” he said. “And I think this season we have a few more guys suited to playing the spots they should be playing. is so excited about it is because I happen to have some different parts than other people.” The 30-year-old Randolph was hired in March amid much fanfare, with a mayor running for re-election proclaiming “Natalie Randolph Day” in the city, but she has found the public attention at times overwhelming. At one point, the school was turning down all requests for interviews. D.C. mayor Adrian Fenty was among the large throng at Coolidge Stadium, a turnout that was a far cry from the only 500 or so fans who usually show up.

We saw how much we improved defensively towards the end of last season, and the difference it made. Now we’re going to try to bring that type of production for the entire season.” In addition to Tupou and Rosenblum, Newton likes what he sees from his players on the offensive and defensive lines. Brad Eckert and Ryder Quigley are returning starters, and other key players who figure to be strong up front include Sean Hoag, Wyatt Browser, Craig Robbins, Spencer Buja and Peter Tight. “It’s a good thing. We’ve got a black president, so why not a female football coach?” said Raymond Orange, a spectator in the packed stands. The petite Randolph wore the standard Coolidge coaching gear — black visor, white polo shirt with the Colts logo and tan shorts. She kept a poker face through much of the penalty-filled first half, delegating much to her assistants, save for the occasional words of wisdom for her players. Her team trailed 7-0 at halftime. “You have this!” she yelled to her offense after a tough series.

“All these guys are capable of playing two offensive and two defensive (line) positions,” Newton said. “They all need to be versatile in that aspect.” Newton wants to carry the momentum from last year’s historic run into this season. The Knights were 3-3 when they reeled off six consecutive wins before losing to Carmel 56-35 in the CCS Division IV championship game. “The guys who were here last year got to experience success, and they want to experience that again,” Newton said. “I’m really anxious to see what we can do.” Randolph, an environmental sciences teacher at the school, was chosen from about 15 candidates after the previous coach resigned. She inherited a team that went 6-4 last season. Even in defeat, she earned kudos from Carroll coach Rick Houchens. “Her main goal is to do something for the best interest of these kids,” Houchens said. “We need more of those types of people. For her to be a female, and have that concept, it doesn’t get any better than that. I have so much respect for her as a person.”

Coolidge played hard in the first half, but their inexperience, combined with a lack of conditioning, let Carroll pull away in the second half. The Colts struggled to move the ball all night, and never found a rhythm on either side of the ball. “We got all the kinks out and we know what we have to do for next week,” Randolph said. “We’re young. We’ve got to stick to the fundamentals. We’re going to work,

Weekend • Aug. 28-29, 2010



Day leads The Barclays as Tiger struggles
By Doug Ferguson

PARAMUS, N.J. — Jason Day can’t get a straight answer from doctors on the mysterious health issues sapping away at his energy. He at least knows exactly where he stands after two rounds of The Barclays. A tournament that once looked as though it might belong to Tiger Woods shifted late Friday to the hands of the 22-year-old Australian, who showed some of his great promise with three late birdies for a 4under 67 and a one-shot lead. Nine players had at least a share of the lead at some point during the second round until Day’s late surge. He was at 8-under 134, one shot clear of Kevin Streelman (63) and Vaughn Taylor (70) going into the weekend of the FedEx Cup’s first playoff event. “I just tried to stay as patient as possible, and it just kind of fell in my lap, which was really good,” he said. Woods didn’t so much lose his patience as much as his putting stroke. Part of that was playing in the afternoon on greens that became bumpy under foot traffic and a day of blazing sun, as Woods expected. He wasn’t planning on missing a 20-inch par putt on the fifth hole, or failing to make a single birdie on the easier front nine. “I didn’t hit it bad at all,” Woods said. “I hit it really good. As I said, I

didn’t putt really well. I hit it as good as I did yesterday. If I don’t make putts, I don’t score.” He wound up with a 73, eight shots worse than his opening round. The good news for the world’s No. 1 player — he will stay atop the world ranking for at least another week after Phil Mickelson missed the cut, and he’s still very much in contention. Most times this year, a bad day for Woods meant an early tee time on the weekend. He still was only four shots behind, and at least takes this with him into the weekend: He has missed only two fairways in two rounds, although he never hit driver one time in the second round. “You play around here and post good numbers, you’ll move up the board,” he said. “The guys aren’t going to be tearing this place apart.” Streelman sure did. Two years after narrowly missing a playoff at Ridgewood Country Club, Streelman ran off six birdies in a seven-hole stretch for a 63 that will put him in the final group Saturday. Clearly, this is no ordinary place for him. Streelman’s grandparents are buried in a cemetery beyond the seventh hole. His parents live in the area. These are his roots. “It’s like a special home for me, a special place,” he said. Stewart Cink raised his Ryder Cup hopes with a 69 that put him in a group at 6-under 136 with Ryder


Australian Jason Day, shown chipping onto the green at No. 9, holds a one-shot lead after the second round of The Barclays.
Cup hopeful Stewart Cink (69), Martin Laird (67) and John Senden, who reached 9 under until he stumbled badly down the stretch, taking a double bogey from the shrubs on the 16th. Senden shot 69. It was a great start for Laird and Senden — and yes, even Woods — as it relates to the FedEx Cup. Laird and Senden were just inside the top 100 in the standings, knowing that only the top 100 advance to the second round next week outside Boston. Woods, at No. 112, is virtually assured of making it through to next week. Also at stake this week is the Ryder Cup, at least in auditioning for the European and U.S. teams. Padraig Harrington of Ireland has to rely on a captain’s pick, and he shot 68 to join the group at 5-under 137 that includes Adam Scott and Ben Crane. Europe’s team — including the three picks — will be decided Sunday.

“The last thing I wanted was to come here and miss the cut, or play poorly here,” Harrington said. Woods wants to play on the U.S. Ryder Cup team as a captain’s pick — the American selections won’t be announced until Sept. 7 — and the desire alone makes him a worthy candidate. His game is starting to show plenty of promise, too. Woods went to 8 under when he hit his approach to 5 feet for birdie on the 18th. Heading to the front nine, the easier of the two nines at Ridgewood, he had only 93 yards to the hole and a wedge in his hand. Woods went 40 feet long, left his first putt 6 feet short and made that to escape with par. That set the tone for the rest of his round. Posing over his tee shot on the par3 second, it sailed over the green and left Woods a tough chip. As he started his swing, a photographer took a series of pictures. “Not in my swing,” Woods said as he made contact, sending it 25 feet long for his first bogey. The real damage came on No. 5, the 291-yard hole where Woods hit driver to 15 feet in the opening round. With the pin close to the front, he would have had to take something off a driver, so he opted to lay up. The plan worked fine until Woods putted to just inside 2 feet from the fringe, then missed the par putt.

Edgar,Penn ready for rematch at UFC 118

Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn are ready to do it again, one of them out to prove their first go-around was no fluke and the other in search of a vastly different outcome. Edgar stunned the mixed martial arts world four months ago in Abu Dhabi, when he upset the heavily favored Penn to win the lightweight title at UFC 112. The everyman from New Jersey stole the show in the UFC’s first foray into the Middle East and its first event outdoors, with a victory that still resonates as one of the biggest surprises in the sport’s young history. Edgar and Penn are headed back inside on Saturday night for their rematch. The fight is the main event of UFC 118 from the TD Garden, marking the UFC’s first trip to Boston. “I still hold BJ in high regard. I mean, he’s a legend in this sport and he is still the greatest lightweight of all time,” Edgar said earlier this week. “The last fight, it made me force myself to bring the best

out of me and now I have to do it again.” In the co-main event, former boxing champion James Toney will makes his first appearance in the cage when he faces Hall of Famer Randy Couture. They’ll leave center stage to Edgar and Penn, though. Their first fight in a temporary arena next to a theme park outside the city center of the United Arab Emirates’ capital was almost like a ballet. The two spent nearly the entire fight on their feet trading strikes, with Edgar using his speed and movement to pick Penn apart. Edgar (12-1) won all five rounds on one judge’s scorecard and four on another, falling to his knees when the result was announced. Then he took his new title back home to New Jersey, where a caravan of friends and fans welcomed him home with open arms. “It was great, man. I actually had a little convoy meet me off the parkway and all, kind of had, like, a champion’s welcome for all the way to my house,” Edgar said. “It was cool.”

Money,horses, death and owls pack film slate
By David Germain

LOS ANGELES — Hollywood aims to help you escape from all that lousy economic news in the real world this fall, with a lineup heavy on fun and fantasy. But Oliver Stone and Michael Douglas won’t let audiences completely off the hook. They’re putting Gordon Gekko, poster boy for greed a generation ago, back into theaters to remind fans about the sharks that got us into this mess. Stone’s “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” — a followup to the 1987 hit that won Douglas the best-actor Academy Award — picks up with ex-con Gekko broke, barred from the stock market, alienated from his family and trying to find a place for himself in 2008 as the global economy races toward chaos. “You’re in the joint for eight years, coming back without your fortune and the ability to trade. He’s estranged from his daughter, he’s lost a son while he’s in prison,” Douglas said. “Initially, Gordon’s more vulnerable.” The key word is initially. Gekko still has plenty of tricks up his sleeve. The “Wall Street” sequel is among September and October releases arriving as a prelude to the big holiday season, whose heavy-hitters include the latest in the “Harry Potter,” “Chronicles of Narnia” and “Meet the Parents” franchises. Here’s a look at highlights among films debuting in early fall:

Zack Snyder (”300”) directs the animated adventure “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole,” based on Kathryn Lasky’s children’s books about owls on a mythic quest against evil. The animated comedy “Alpha and Omega” features the voices of Justin Long and Hayden Panettiere in a tale of two wolves on a journey home after park rangers move them halfway across country. “Secretariat” gives wholesome treatment to the story of the 1973 Triple Crown winner, with Diane Lane as the housewife who takes over her ailing father’s stables and guides the horse to triumph. Lane was 8 years old at the time and traveling outside the United States with a theater company, yet she recalls the story of Secretariat gripping people around the world. “The export of Secretariat to the rest of the world, coming from the American news wire, was really something. It was a great sigh of relief compared to all the other offerings we brought to the global news at that time,” Lane said. “I had such a crush on Secretariat as a little girl. He was like Pegasus to me at the time. I’ve always had a crush on that species. There’s something about horses and girls.”

Reiner’s nostalgic ‘Flipped’
By Jake Coyle

“Checkered” would be too kind of a way to characterize Rob Reiner’s recent filmography as a director. His last decade has included the romantic comedies “Rumor Has It...” and “Alex & Emma,” and his last film, 2007s’ “The Bucket List.” It’s been a while since his incredible start in the ‘1980s: “This Is Spinal Tap,” “The Sure Thing,” “Stand by Me,”

“The Princess Bride” and “When Harry Met Sally...” Reiner’s latest, “Flipped,” has been billed as a return to form for the director and a companion piece to “Stand By Me.” Like that film, “Flipped” is a coming-of-age ode to youth cloaked in mid-century Americana (the early 1960s). It’s a kind of film that’s nostalgic for nostalgia. There’s charm here and some honest observations of adolescence. But there’s also a willful, cloying datedness to the

movie — like a lost episode of “The Wonder Years” or an “Archie” comic strip. “Flipped” — and its ‘50s, ‘60s jukebox soundtrack — opens with Curtis Lee’s “Pretty Little Angel Eyes” and a close-up of young Juli Baker (Morgan Lily as 7-year-old old Juli, Madeline Carroll for most of the film). She’s there on Bonnie Meadow Lane to greet her new neighbors moving in, and she immediately

SANTA MONICA — Before he takes moviegoers deep beneath the Pandoran sea, James Cameron hopes they’ll go for an extended tour of the fictional planet he introduced in “Avatar.” “Avatar: Special Edition,” which includes 9 minutes of new footage, opens in 3-D theaters worldwide Friday. “I’m trying to use the technology to keep people interested and enthused about the ‘Avatar’ universe, because it’s going to be a long time before we get another ‘Avatar’ movie done,” the filmmaker said in a recent interview. Cameron, 56, already has plans for the “Avatar” sequels.

He’s also got a submarine to build, cameras for the Mars rover to design, an underwater 3D camera to upgrade and maybe even an ocean-related feature to make. But first, he had to select and perfect new “Avatar” footage and persuade distributor 20th Century Fox to rerelease the film theatrically in 3-D. Cameron said there are “hundreds of thousands, if not millions” of people who wanted to see the movie in 3-D but didn’t get the chance because “Avatar” was edged out of 3D theaters by other scheduled 3-D releases. Since then, the number of available 3-D screens has doubled internationally, he said. Fox executives said in a statement that they have been “inundated with requests to rerelease the film in theaters in 3-D” since it wrapped its original run in March.

“Conviction,” the story of a woman who embarks on an 18-year crusade to clear her brother (Sam Rockwell) of murder; and Woody Allen’s latest mix of comedy and drama, “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger,” with Naomi Watts, Anthony Hopkins, Gemma Jones, Josh Brolin, Antonio Banderas and Freida Pinto as Londoners struggling with old and new relationships. Matt Damon and director Clint Eastwood, who collaborated on last year’s “Invictus,” reunite for “Hereafter,” a drama about a Frenchwoman, a British boy and an American man with unusual connections to death whose lives gradually intersect. Damon said the film seeks answers about the most serious question — is there an afterlife waiting for people when they die? “I have to believe there is. I guess I choose to believe there is,” Damon said. “If I’m wrong and the light’s just going to go out, then I’ll be none the wiser. But it seems like a pretty cruel twist of fate if it’s this and only this. I like to believe there’s a bigger point.”

Wining, biking: FALL Take two wheels along the Danube
By Vernika Oleksyn

Ben Affleck performs in a couple of money-related dramas. In “The Company Men,” Affleck stars alongside Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper and Kevin Costner in a story of executives coping with hard times after their downsizing company lets them go. Affleck directs and stars in “The Town,” playing a bank robber who falls for a branch manager (Rebecca Hall) his gang took hostage on their last job. “In ‘Company Men,’ we’re going down the economic ladder, and in ‘The Town,’ we’re trying to steal our way up,” Affleck said. Affleck deliberately chose not to act in his directing debut, “Gone Baby Gone.” With “The Town,” he joked that at least he knew the director and star would not clash. “There was a lot of harmony between the director and the lead actor on this movie,” Affleck said. “I knew as a director that I would always be on time, I would always be cooperative, and our tastes would always be in sync.” Affleck pal Damon narrates Charles Ferguson’s documentary “Inside Job,” a sweeping chronicle of the 2008 economic crisis. Amid that crisis, Stone and Douglas unleash Gekko for their “Wall Street” sequel. Estranged from his daughter (Mulligan), Gekko ingratiates himself with her fiance (Shia LaBeouf), a young investment whiz who falls under his future father-in-law’s spell. LaBeouf said today’s climate as depicted in “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” makes 1980s Gekko-style greed look like child’s play. “We’re living in the epitome of greed now more so than ever,” LaBeouf said. “Greed where you have people with absolutely no scruples, and you’re dealing with money on a totally different level. ... These are hustlers who could sell water to a whale. It’s cutthroat in a different way. It’s a totally different business now.” in her, rhapsodizes that she’s “iridescent.” The strength of “Flipped” is in its trueness to humdrum adolescence. It’s filled not with extravagant dramas, but instead portrays how seemingly minor happenings take on grand meaning: the tragic tearing down of the cherished tree, the terrifying formality of a sit-down dinner, the frightening awkwardness of nearly everything. But the “flipped” device becomes a contrivance that doesn’t hide the movie’s lack of emotional momentum. Though it makes clumsy stabs at life’s difficulties with a mentally retarded brother-in-law and an out-of-place bit of domestic violence, the film lacks the darkness of “Stand By Me” — and its jokes, too. It relies too much on “Leave it to Beaver” period fetishizing: bicycles on the front lawn, neatly parted hair, baseball pennants on a boy’s wall, white people everywhere. But among the frequently loud, chaotic films aimed at young adults, “Flipped” is a mostly welcome if still somewhat disappointing inversion.

MAUTERN, Austria — Think of it as a workout where frequent wine-sipping breaks are a must. With paths that wind through vineyards, fruit groves and fairy tale villages overlooking the Danube, the Alpine republic’s world famous Wachau region is best explored by bike. Hop on and off your cycle to sample the UNESCO World Heritage site’s internationally acclaimed Gruener Veltliner white wine, indulge in sweet, apricot-filled dumplings and trek up to the ruins of a castle where Richard the Lionheart was held captive. A perfect place to kick off your two-wheel tour is the village of Mautern — about 80 kilometers (50 miles) west of Vienna — that boasts a Roman history museum and, not so incidentally, is home to one of the country’s best restaurants. The family run Landhaus Bacher — which also rents out rooms — creates delicious but pricey dishes from local products in a low key yet chic setting. Diners can choose from sophisticated multiple course menus that, if space allows, can culminate with a dessert of two supersized “marillenknoedel” — traditional doughy delights dusted with bread crumbs and sugar that, when split open, reveal steaming apricots — locally grown, of course. Expect to pay upward of 250 euros ($318) for a multiple course dinner for two with wine. Prices are more reasonable at lunchtime, when about 100 euros ($127) will get you and a date a three course meal each and wine. Dishes can also be ordered individually. But first back to biking. As you pedal upstream from the town of Krems — across the bridge from Mautern — you’ll soon hit the romantic village of Duernstein that, with its cobblestone streets and pastel blue church spire, is a major tourist draw. It was here that King Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned for ransom from December 1192 until March 1193. Centuries later, the ruins of where he was held can still be explored. History lesson complete, head down the hill to

Kristen Bell, Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver star in “You Again,” a comedy about a woman and her mother coping with their old high school rivals at a family wedding. Other comic tales include: “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” about a stressed teen (Keir Gilchrist) who finds a mentor (Zach Galifianakis) at a mental clinic; Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel as a reluctant pair forced to care for their orphaned goddaughter in the romance “Life as We Know It;” “Easy A,” a comic twist on “The Scarlet Letter,” with Emma Stone as a teen turning a rumor about losing her virginity to her own advantage; and Stephen Frears’ “Tamara Drewe,” about a former ugly ducking (Gemma Arterton) who returns to her British hometown a striking beauty.

The sober British drama “Never Let Me Go” reunites Keira Knightley with close pal Carey Mulligan, who got her start with a small part in Knightley’s “Pride & Prejudice.” “My first job was with Keira when I was 18, and she was the star of the movie. It’s really amazing that I get to play alongside her now in a kind of more level way,” said Mulligan, who also co-stars in the “Wall Street” sequel. “Never Let Me Go” features Mulligan, Knightley and Andrew Garfield (recently cast in the title role of the next “Spider-Man” movie) as three boarding school friends raised for a stark destiny in an alternate-reality Britain. Among other dramatic offerings: David Fincher’s “The Social Network,” featuring Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Timberlake in a drama about the founders of Facebook; Hilary Swank in

Three horror franchises return: “Paranormal Activity 2,” a followup to last year’s supernatural sensation; “Saw 3D,” with survivors of diabolical killer Jigsaw finding new terror as they seek solace from a self-help guru; and “Resident Evil: Afterlife,” with Milla Jovovich back on the job killing undead zombies. Hollywood’s love affair with vampires continues with “Let Me In,” adapted from the best-seller “Let the Right One In,” about the friendship between a bullied boy (Kodi SmitMcPhee) and a young bloodsucker (Chloe Moretz). Other frightening tales include “Buried,” with Ryan Reynolds as an American contract driver in Iraq who wakes up buried alive in a coffin; “My Soul to Take,” Wes Craven’s tale of a serial killer who may have returned from the dead; and “Devil,” about a group of people beset by supernatural

falls for Bryce Loski (Ryan Ketzner as young Bryce, Callan McAuliffe predominantly) and his “dazzling eyes.” He responds by hiding behind his mother, and continues to go to extremes to avoid Juli: “My life had become a minefield,” he says. The film tracks these two through childhood, spending most of the time at 13-years-old, when Bryce is beginning to soften to Juli’s long held crush. Reiner co-wrote the script with Andrew Scheinman (a producer from many of Reiner’s best), adapting Wendelin Van Draanen’s 2001 young adult novel. Though Reiner has shifted the book’s present day setting, he has kept its central device: switching back and forth between the perspectives of Bryce and Juli, each narrating their version of the same events. Reiner flips the image with a “whoosh!” Perspective is the plaything of

Instead, he could jump on his board and hang with his friends. “I definitely don’t love falling every day,” he said with a smile. This week, skaters have been logging extra hours preparing for Saturday’s main event. A couple of the guys out Friday afternoon were planning to attend, no one seemed very confident that they would win, however. Billy Hurley, 19, plans to enter simply for fun. The Belmont resident is at the park daily. Saturday will be a chance for Hurley to hopefully see some new moves. Twenty-three-year-old Tim Dodson normally takes pictures of the event but was contemplating entering. “I’m not gonna prepare. If I’m gonna do it, I’m just gonna cruise around,” he said. The idea for a competition started a number of years ago after the Phil Shao Memorial Skate Park opened in Redwood City in 2003, explained Jason Strubing, an owner of Redwood City’s Skateworks, one of the event’s sponsors. “We spent a lot of time to get it built. It’s a great facility. We wanted to get something going which came to culminate in a contest once the city was on

board,” said Strubing. Participation has grown since the inaugural year but what stands out to Strubing is the reaction from those involved. “To see that many kids stoked on each other,” is great, said Strubing. “They’re all so supportive of each other. It’s cool to see the positive energy.” There are a variety of divisions. Previously, ages were split into two divisions: 12 and under or 13 and older. New this year is a section just for those 8 years old or younger. Strubing noted the skill set of such a young guy is different from that of a skater with a number of years skating. There is a street contest and also a bowl contest, which comes with a winner-takes-all jackpot of $1,000 from Emerica. Best trick contests will be held throughout the day for prizes. Douglas described the park as having a unique energy on previous contest d a y s . “It’s never ever like that,” he said. “There’s an electricity to it, you know? People are going for broke; for tricks you’ve never seen them do all for a Tshirt.”

Weissenkirchen where a peak into Christian Loidl’s Wachauer Bauernladen store will get your stomach growling. “We have regulars who come a few times a year to stock up,” the 38-year-old said during a recent visit. “On average, they’ll spend about 300 euros ($381).” Not surprising, considering what’s on the shelves: homemade jams and pasta, apricot nectar and, of course, crates and crates of wine. With your mouth watering, keep heading west to two well-known wineries — Jamek and Holzapfel — housed in lovely buildings complete with outdoor tables to soak up the scenery and ease sore muscles.

While the original is just 4 inches tall, visitors can pose next to a larger-than-life replica of the 25,000-year-old beauty the right to have a drug-free work place. In a July document, the California Legislative Analyst’s Office says that Proposition 19 “does specify that employers would retain existing rights to address consumption of marijuana that impairs an employee’s job performance.” The issue was examined by Chief Deputy County Counsel John Beiers who found the law does not clearly outline an employee’s rights on the issue. Basically, it would need to be decided by a judge. Hanley also questions at what level someone would be impaired from driving or being in the classroom. He worries open fields adjacent to schools could under consideration: • Reduce weekday early morning, midday and/or late evening service; • Increase the full fare one-way base or zone fares by 25 cents with corresponding changes to related fares; • Increase Go Pass from $140 to $155; • Revise codified tariff to reflect ClipperSM card implementation; discontinue Monthly Pass grace period; discontinue the use of 8-ride ticket by more than one passenger per ticket; redefine

Due to the many concerns, Hanley is hoping other school districts will follow San Mateo Union’s lead coming out against the measure. Admittedly, even if these concerns were addressed, Hanley would still be against legalization of cannabis.

that doesn’t fit your momentary notions. It’s a quick way to cause all kinds of trouble for yourself.


SAtuRDAy, Aug. 28, 2010
Two hobbies or interests of yours could turn out to generate some extra income in the year ahead. You may not start out looking for a moneymaking outlet, but others who see your work could initiate things for you.

VIRgO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Putting strings on what you do for another would cause the person to regret ever asking for your help. In fact, s/he might never ask anything of you again, because they might even leave your life. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - You and your partner must
look out for one another’s interests when involved in a joint endeavor. Not doing so would not only hinder your efforts, but hurt the relationship as well.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - Your spending habits are likely to be determined by the company you keep. If you can’t afford to blow a hole in your wallet, don’t hang out with the high rollers. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - When negotiating a new
arrangement, if there are better terms you’re hoping to get, let your counterpart come to you first for what s/he wants. You then can get what you want.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Don’t make quid pro quo allimportant with your friends, or you could damage the relationship. Of course each should look for a way to repay a favor, but without pressure of any kind.

tAuRuS (April 20-May 20) - Expect volunteers to walk off the job if they see they are doing all the heavy lifting while you’re simply issuing orders. Be sure you set the example you want everyone to follow. gEMINI (May 21-June 20) - Let others put the lampshades on their heads trying to make an impression at a party; you merely need to be who you are in order to get others to think you’re pretty neat. CANCER (June 21-July 22) - In trying to be protective of your loved ones, you could easily become unduly possessive of them, if you’re not careful. Doing so might crush their spirits, losing them to you forever. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Taking what another says out of
context and reporting it as fact to everyone else could create an abrasive situation that would anger all parties involved. Be honest about what has been said. Copyright 2010, United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

SAgIttARIuS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Wait until all the votes are counted, declaring you the winner, before designating yourself the leader. If you jump the gun and start bossing your pals around, you’ll find yourself booted out. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Letting your emotions
dominate your thinking instead of your logic could result in some very hurtful, bad actions. Once you release your feelings, it’ll be too late to take anything back.


AQuARIuS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Instead of being your normal, open-minded self, you could stubbornly reject anything

Recession may have pushed births to new low
By Marilynn Marchione

Forget the Dow and the GDP. Here’s the latest economic indicator: The U.S. birth rate has fallen to its lowest level in at least a century as many people apparently decided they couldn’t afford more mouths to feed. The birth rate dropped for the second year in a row since the recession began in 2007. Births fell 2.6 percent last year even as the population grew, numbers released Friday by the National Center for Health Statistics show. “It’s a good-sized decline for one year. Every month is showing a decline from the year before,” said Stephanie Ventura, the demographer who oversaw the report. The birth rate, which takes into account changes in the population, fell to 13.5 births for every 1,000 people last year. That’s down from 14.3 in 2007 and way down from 30 in 1909, when it was common for people to have big families. The situation is a striking turnabout from 2007, when more babies were born in the United States than any other year in the nation’s history. The recession began that fall, dragging down stocks, jobs and births. “When the economy is bad and people are

uncomfortable about their financial future, they tend to postpone having children. We saw that in the Great Depression the 1930s and we’re seeing that in the Great Recession today,” said Andrew Cherlin, a sociology professor at Johns Hopkins University. “It could take a few years to turn this around,” he added. The birth rate dipped below 20 per 1,000 people in 1932 and did not rise above that level until the early 1940s. Recent recessions, in 1981-82, 1990-91 and 2001, all were followed by small dips in the birth rate, according to CDC figures. The Great Recession “is definitely a deterrent” to people having more children, said Dr. Michael Cabbad, chief of maternal health at the Brooklyn Hospital Center, where births declined from about 2,800 in 2008 to about 2,500 last year. Even Cabbad’s son said he’d like to have more children “if his business plan works out.” Nearly half of low- and middle-income women surveyed a year ago by the Guttmacher Institute said they wanted to delay pregnancy or limit the number of children they have because of money concerns. Half of those women also said the recession made them more focused on contraceptive use. campuses, Scott added. “It’s a very difficult situation that community colleges in California are in,” he said. “I consider it a great tragedy when we have thousands of students coming to our campuses who we don’t have classes for.” The 23-campus California State University system is paying expenses out of its student fee revenue because it has not received expected payments from the state,

Guttmacher researches reproductive health issues. Besides finances, experts said a decline in immigration to the United States also may be pushing births down. The downward trend invites worrisome comparisons to Japan and its “lost decade” of economic stagnation in the 1990s, which was accompanied by very low birth rates. Births in Japan fell 2 percent in 2009 after a slight rise in 2008. Not so in Britain, where the population took its biggest jump in almost half a century last year and the fertility rate is at its highest level since 1973. France’s birth rate also has been rising; Germany’s birth rate is lower but rising as well. Cherlin said the U.S. birth rate “is still higher than the birth rate in many said Chancellor Charles Reed. “This is day 58 without a budget,” Reed said. “We’re operating with a blindfold in terms of how many students we can enroll.” Over the past two years, California’s public colleges and universities have increased student fees, furloughed employees, reduced course offerings and cut enrollment in response to deep cuts in state funding. The three system leaders said they are

wealthy countries and we also have many immigrants entering the country. So we do not need to be worried yet about a birth dearth” that would crimp the nation’s ability to take care of its growing elderly population. The new U.S. report is a rough count of births from states. It estimates there were 4,136,000 births in 2009, down from a year ago’s estimate of 4,247,000 in 2008 and more than 4.3 million in 2007. The report does not give details on trends in different age groups. That will come next spring and will give a clearer picture who is and is not having children, Ventura said. Last spring’s report, on births in 2008, showed an overall drop but a surprising rise in births to women over 40, who may have felt they were running out of time to have children and didn’t want to delay despite the bad economy.

Continued from page 1
month, he said. Most classes are more than 90 percent full, and there are “huge wait lists” of students trying to get into courses at many

hopeful the new state budget will include the increased higher education funding proposed by the governor, but warn they may need to turn away more students and increase fees if they receive less money that expected. “We’re really under pressure to reduce the number of students we’re able to serve, which is antithetical to our access mission,” UC President Mark Yudof said.

Violence targets police in Mexico massacre
By E. Eduardo Castillo

REYNOSA, Mexico — A car explodes outside a police station, another outside a television station. A gang is suspected of massacring 72 migrants. A prosecutor investigating those deaths suddenly disappears. Mexico’s drug cartels seem to be adopting the tactics of war zones half a world away. The violence appears to have contributed to fewer migrants crossing the border into the U.S., officials say, as they have to traverse some of Mexico’s most dangerous territory to get to Texas. Mexican officials, meanwhile, warned that there likely will be more in the coming months. “Violence will persist and even intensify,” President Felipe Calderon said at a forum on securi-

ty where he vowed he would not back down. If authorities confirm the explosions were car bombs, it would mean a total of four such explosives have been used this year in Mexico — a new and frightening tactic that officials say the cartels are using in the escalating drug war. No drug gangs claimed responsibility for Friday’s violence in the northern state of Tamaulipas. A survivor of the massacre, however, said the killers identified themselves as Zetas, a group of former Mexican army special forces who are now a lethal drug gang that has taken to extorting migrants. Kidnappings and attacks on government security patrols are rampant in the highways surrounding San Fernando, where the bodies of the 72 Central and South American migrants were discovered on a

ranch Tuesday, bound, blindfolded and slumped against a wall. Last month, the bodies of 15 people were dumped in the middle of the highway from San Fernando to Matamoros, a city across the border from Brownsville, Texas. The violence extends from Matamoros along the Texas border to Ciudad Juarez, across from El Paso, Texas. The two car explosions happened less than 45 minutes apart in Ciudad Victoria, the Tamaulipas state capital, the Attorney General’s Office said. The first exploded in front of the offices of the Televisa network and the second in front of transit-police offices. There were no injuries, though both caused some damage to buildings and knocked out the signal of the Televisa network for several hours.


Weapons and ammunition seized at the ranch where 72 corpses believed to be migrant workers were discovered in San Fernando by the Mexican Navy, are on display in this handout photo released by the Attorney General’s office.

Restaurants scramble after massive egg recall
Eggs sunny-side-up are still on the menu. But restaurants nationwide are keeping a closer eye on egg suppliers and reminding diners of the dangers of undercooked food after a massive recall tied to a salmonella outbreak. “If someone asks for eggs overeasy, what do you do, put a skull and crossbones on their table?” said Louis Tricoli, who owns three Wisconsin restaurants with his family, including one where nearly two dozen people were sickened in late June after likely eating the nowrecalled eggs. “Undercooked beef, undercooked pork, chicken, eggs, anything you ask to be undercooked, it’s at your own risk.”

Around the nation
Federal contractor charged with leaking secrets
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is accusing an analyst who worked at the State Department of leaking top secret information about North Korea to a reporter. It’s the latest move in an aggressive campaign to crack down on leaks, even as the administration supports proposed legislation that would shield reporters from having to identify their sources. Steven Kim, who worked at State as a federal contractor, is named in a federal indictment unsealed Friday.

Guard troops to deploy to Arizona border
By Amanda Lee Myers

PHOENIX — The first of 532 National Guard troops are set to begin their mission in the southern Arizona desert on Monday under President Barack Obama’s plan to beef up U.S.-Mexico border security, although they won’t have any law enforcement authority. Authorities would not say how many troops would start Monday, but said waves of them will be deploying every Monday until all 532 are on the Arizona border, likely by the end of September. In May, Obama ordered

1,200 National Guard troops to boost security along the border. California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has said the first of 224 National Guard troops allocated for his state have finished their training and are expected to be deployed to the state’s border on Wednesday. Troops will also be stationed in New Mexico and Texas. The troops will be “extra eyes and ears” for U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents, and though they will have guns for self-defense, they will not have the authority to arrest anyone, said Arizona National Guard

spokesman Lt. Valentine Castillo. He said if troops spot illegal immigrants, they must report them to the Border Patrol, whose agents would make the arrest. The troops will be stationed in the desert at “strategic locations” along the border, he said, but did not provide specifics. Mario Escalante, a spokesman for the Border Patrol’s Tucson sector, said the troops will use binoculars, night-vision equipment, remote cameras and computers to conduct surveillance on the border, and will have radios to communicate with Border Patrol agents.
