PG&E touts new safety plans
Utility’s proposal includes plans to install shut-off valves in highly populated regions
By Garance Burke
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO — A California utility under fire for a deadly pipeline blast in San Bruno revealed an ambitious plan on Friday to boost safety on its gas lines it said would cost the average home less than $2 more per month.

The new $2.2 billion plan filed with the California Public Utilities Commission will make the company an industry leader for safety, Pacific Gas & Electric Co. said. “This plan represents a clear break with the way PG&E and other gas utilities once approached pipeline safety,” said Nick Stavropoulos, PG&E’s executive vice president of gas operations.

The commission in June required all state utilities to forecast how they would pressuretest or replace the untested segments of their transmission lines — such as the pipe that exploded last year in San Bruno. The Sept. 9 accident killed eight people, injured dozens and sparked a fireball that torched 38 homes in a quiet neighborhood overlooking San Francisco Bay.

In the coming months, the commission will review the proposals from PG&E and other utilities before approving any costs or setting new safety requirements. They all must include plans for more patrols and leak surveys, pressure reductions, and prioritize pressure testing for pipelines coursing through

This Sunday marks the 55th anniversary of the Hillsborough Concours D’Elegance, the longest consistently running concours in the world, bringing authentic classic automobiles to the Bay Area. “You come to a concours to see the finest example of a car,” said Concours Chairman Rob Fisher. “The difference between concours and other car shows is that these cars are judged, and they are judged based on how close they are to what they were when they rolled off the assembly line.” About 200 vintage cars will be on display on the 18th fairway of Crystal Springs Golf Course.

South San Francisco volunteers come together for park renovations Sheriff deputies replace slain pet lizard
Tony Kusha and Rick Benavides worked together Friday morning to make sure the screws on a new play structure were secure. If a nut fell, a friendly person nearby grabbed it and the men went on to the next challenge. Both volunteers — Kusha, from Dr. Pepper, and Benavides, a South San Francisco resident involved in a couple service organizations — were part of a group of 150 volunteers who came together Friday to build a new park at Orange Memorial Park. Building the park — which is about one third of the planned park renovation — took a number of partners. The city worked with the Boys and Girls Club of North San Mateo County, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, the Safeway Foundation and KaBOOM! to make it happen. “It’s fabulous,” Sharon Ranals, director of Parks and Recreation, said of the partnership. “It allows us to do so much more.” This is the second time the city and KaBOOM! have worked together on a park. A new park was built late last year at Paradise Valley Park. Ranals noted that location hasn’t had any vandalism By Michelle Durand

THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME
by David L. Hoyt and Jeff Knurek

The island volcano Krakatoa blew up; the resulting tidal waves in Indonesia’s Sunda Strait claimed some 36,000 lives in Java and Sumatra. In 1776, the Battle of Long Island began during the Revolutionary War as British troops attacked American forces, who ended up being forced to retreat two days later. In 1859, Edwin L. Drake drilled the first successful oil well in the United States, at Titusville, Pa. In 1908, Lyndon Baines Johnson, the 36th president of the United States, was born near Stonewall, Texas. In 1928, the Kellogg-Briand Pact was signed in Paris, outlawing war and providing for the peaceful settlement of disputes. In 1939, the first turbojet-powered aircraft, the Heinkel He 178, went on its first full-fledged test flight over Germany. In 1949, a violent white mob prevented an outdoor concert headlined by Paul Robeson from taking place near Peekskill, N.Y. (The concert was held eight days later.) In 1957, the USS Swordfish, the second Skate Class nuclear submarine, was launched from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Maine. In 1962, the United States launched the Mariner 2 space probe, which flew past Venus in Dec. 1962. In 1979, British war hero Lord Louis Mountbatten and three other people, including his 14-year-old grandson Nicholas, were killed off the coast of Ireland in a boat explosion claimed by the Irish Republican Army. In 1989, the first U.S. commercial satellite rocket was launched from Cape Canaveral, Fla. — a Delta booster carrying a British communications satellite, the Marcopolo 1. Ten years ago: Israeli helicopters fired a pair of rockets through office windows and killed senior PLO leader Mustafa Zibri.

Despite his conviction in June, Bey, the former head of Your Black Muslim Bakery, continued to assert his innocence in a statement read by his attorney Gene Peretti. “I want the people to know it has never been about truth and justice, it has been about perception and politics,” the statement said. “I do apologize to my family and the families of the victims for not making wiser decisions in allowing this to have occurred on my watch. “I will not rest until I find out those who are truly responsible for setting this operation up,” the statement added.

The number allegedly led authorities to Santiago, who was arrested the next day. The lawsuit says Santiago is mentally disabled and falsely acknowledged he made the threat during intense questioning by investigators. A judge eventually dismissed charges against him. The suit — filed last week in San Jose federal court — also claims authorities failed to turn over evidence that showed Santiago had not called Caltrain. A sheriff’s spokesman declined to comment, saying the office had not seen the lawsuit.

Man accused of bomb threat sues sheriff
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Local brief
PIA names interim director
Peninsula Interfaith Action has hired an interim executive director to lead the organization for the next six to nine months, the nonprofit announced Friday. Jennifer Martinez begins her new position immediately and PIA officials say the transition time is an opportunity to reassess the organization’s vision, set new goals and strategize. A transitional leadership team will search for a new permanent executive director in 2012. Martinez served four years as a community organizer with PIA’s sister organization in San Francisco and consulted professionally with projects throughout the country. Martinez has a political science degree from Stanford University and a master’s and doctorate in social and global justice from the University of Nottingham. PIA includes 23 congregations representing 15,000 households from Daly City to Mountain View. Members and volunteers work to improve quality of life throughout the peninsula.

A Pacifica man who spent 40 days behind bars after wrongly being accused of making a bomb threat against Caltrain is suing the San Mateo County Sheriff. The lawsuit by 27-year-old Antonio Santiago claims a sheriff’s deputy incorrectly wrote down one digit of the number from which the bogus Aug. 16, 2009 bomb threat came.

Vehicles flee after striking apparent suicide victim
BAY CITY NEWS SERVICE

Police are seeking two vehicles suspected of fleeing after striking a man who apparently laid down on a street in Redwood City to commit suicide on Thursday night. Officers responded at 9:04 p.m. to a report of an accident between a vehicle and pedestrian in the 1800 block of El Camino Real.

They arrived to find a man suffering from serious injuries in the roadway. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Investigators discovered that the man had apparently told a bystander that he was going to kill himself just moments before walking into the roadway and lying down. He was run over by two vehicles, both of

which left the scene without stopping, according to police. Police are searching for the two cars, described as a small silver sedan and a small black SUV. Anyone with information about the case or the whereabouts of the vehicles is asked to call Redwood City police at (650) 780-7100.

‘Don’t wait. Don’t delay’
Two million ordered to leave as Irene takes aim
DA agrees doctor incompetent
San Mateo County prosecutors abandoned efforts on Monday to prove a former prominent child psychiatrist is mentally fit to stand trial a second time on accusations he molested several male patients, sending him to a state mental hospital and essentially ending a prolonged legal battle over the fate of the 79-year-old man. Prosecutor Melissa McKowan stipulated that William Hamilton Ayres, who reportedly suffers from Alzeimer’s-related dementia, is incompetent. The announcement came on what would have been the start of Ayres’ second jury trial on the competency issue. A jury earlier this year hung 8-4. A placement report is due by the end of the month and Judge Jack Grandsaert will rule Sept. 7 where Ayres should be committed. The law requires a locked facility for a minimum of six months and Napa State Hospital seems the most likely although he could be transferred in the future to a different locked facility.

Tax break zone bill shelved
A bill intended to close a loophole in existing law that lets companies relocate to another city within the state to gain lucrative tax credits failed to pass out of a legislative committee Tuesday.. Assembly Bill 1278, authored by Assemblyman Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, was inspired by a company, VWR International, that is ditching Brisbane to relocate to an enterprise zone in the city of Visalia. But Hill failed to get the four votes needed to move the bill past the committee stage. Currently, state law allows companies to receive tax credits for firing an employee in one location and replacing them in another location within the state through enterprise zones.

MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. — Whipping up trouble before ever reaching land, Hurricane Irene zeroed in Friday for a catastrophic run up the Eastern Seaboard. More than 2 million people were told to move to safer places, and New York City ordered the nation’s biggest subway system shut down for the first time because of a natural disaster. As the storm’s outermost bands of wind and rain began to lash the Outer Banks of North Carolina, authorities in points farther north begged people to get out of harm’s way. The hurricane lost some strength but still packed 100 mph winds, and officials in the Northeast, not used to tropical weather, feared it could wreak devastation. “Don’t wait. Don’t delay,” said President Barack Obama, who decided to cut short his summer vacation by a day and return to Washington. “I cannot stress this highly enough: If you are in the projected path of this hurricane, you have to take precautions now.” Senior hurricane specialist Richard Pasch of the National Hurricane Center said there were signs that the hurricane may have weakened slightly, but strong winds continued to extend 100 miles from its center. The moment Saturday when the eye of the hurricane crosses land “is not as important as just being in that big swath,” Pasch said. “And unfortunately, it’s a big target.” Hurricane warnings were issued from North

Cars pack the westbound lanes of the Atlantic City Expressway, as thousands of people evacuate the barrier islands along the Southern New Jersey coastline ahead of the landfall of Hurricane Irene.
Carolina to New York, and watches were posted farther north, on the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard off Massachusetts. Evacuation orders covered at least 2.3 million people, including 1 million in New Jersey, 315,000 in Maryland, 300,000 in North Carolina, 200,000 in Virginia and 100,000 in Delaware. “This is probably the largest number of people that have been threatened by a single hurricane in the United States,” said Jay Baker, a geography professor at Florida State University. New York City ordered more than 300,000 people who live in flood-prone areas to leave, including Battery Park City at the southern tip of Manhattan, Coney Island and the beachfront Rockaways.

Poll:GOP voters feeling better about president choices
By Kasie Hunt and Jennifer Agiesta

More students pass exit exam
More sophomore students are passing the state-mandated high school exit exam upon first attempt, with those in San Mateo County faring better than students statewide. More than 80 percent of last year’s sophomore class statewide passed both the English and mathematics portions of the California High School Exit Exam, known as the CAHSEE, according to results released Wednesday by the California Department of Education. San Mateo County students scored a bit better with 87 percent passing the mathematics portion and 85 percent meeting the English requirements.

WASHINGTON — Republicans party elders are still grousing about the GOP choices for president — but the voters who will choose the nominee are growing more satisfied with the possibilities with Texas Gov. Rick Perry now in the race. Party leaders have been looking for a new contender who is strong enough to take on President Barack Obama. As recently as this week, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush — again — insisted they weren’t running for president despite urging from supporters. But an Associated Press-GfK poll released

Friday found that Republicans and Republican-leaning independents are coming around to the choices already on the table: About two-thirds are pleased with the party’s presidential field, compared with just half in June. And they’re paying more attention, with 52 percent expressing a “great deal” of interest in the GOP nomination fight — compared with 39 percent earlier this summer — after a period that saw Perry enter the race and Michele Bachmann win a test vote in Iowa, the lead-off caucus state, threatening Mitt Romney’s standing at the top of the pack. The poll shows Perry, who has never run a national campaign and is just now introducing himself to most people, benefiting from wallto-wall news coverage over the past few weeks as he became a candidate and jostled the until-then sleepy contest. Just 12 percent

of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents have a negative impression of the Texas governor. And 63 percent of Republicans view him in a positive light, compared with 33 percent in June. Beyond that, Republicans didn’t change their impressions much about Romney. Nearly 2 in 3 still view the former Massachusetts governor positively, while just under a quarter see him negatively as he runs a cautious, methodical campaign that’s facing its first true test in Perry. Bachmann, the Minnesota congresswoman who won the Iowa straw poll, got roughly the same marks as Romney now that she’s boosted her national profile. Both her positive and negative ratings rose in the two months since she entered the contest and became better known.

Brown errs on high-speed rail plan
— Contra Costa Times

Other voices
of the project from the Bay Area to Anaheim is likely to be way low. The $9 billion in bond authority approved by the voters in 2008 won’t even cover a quarter of the cost, and requires matching funds that are not likely to be forthcoming. Despite all of these problems, the rail authority is moving ahead with plans to lay 100 miles of track in the Central Valley. Even though this is the least expensive and least complicated part of the route, cost estimates already are running way higher than forecast. Initial reports on the segment that would almost but not quite connect Merced and Bakersfield were estimated to cost $7.1 billion just for the track. Those cost estimates are now as much as $13.9 billion, and this is the easy part of the project. It would not be surprising if the cost of the complete rail project rose north

ov. Jerry Brown wants to go forward with California’s high-speed rail project despite its all but certain failure. He said, “I would like to be part of the group that gets America to think big again.” That’s an admirable sentiment, but if the state or nation is going to think big, it also must think smart, and there is nothing smart about the high-speed rail boondoggle. The High-Speed Rail Authority has bungled the project from the beginning with poor management, a lack of a coherent business plan, no realistic estimates of cost, ridership or fares, no final decision on the route and even less chance of obtaining the tens of billions of dollars in private financing that is needed to complete the system. It is difficult to fathom how Brown cannot see that a high-speed rail system in California is doomed to failure. The estimated $43 billion for the first phase

G

of $100 billion. No wonder the Legislative Analyst’s Office advised against Brown’s request for $185 million to keep the project alive. Even with large subsidies, ridership is not apt to be anywhere near what is needed to keep fares competitive with airlines, even with higher fuel prices. It would make far more sense for California to spend transportation money on urban transit projects such as BART to San Jose than to try to build a high-speed rail system in a region that does not have the population density to support it. If California continues to proceed with such an obvious waste of billions of taxpayer dollars, how can the state expect voters to ever pass tax increases and extensions? Brown should have shown some leadership by dropping his request for highspeed rail funds and calling for the entire project to be canceled before any more money is wasted. It’s still not too late to do the right thing and derail the boondoggle express.

Letters to the editor
Back to the drawing board
Editor, We learn in the news today that leaders at both the Santa Clara Water District and the Alameda County Water District oppose trading water rights with developer DMB in regards to the Cargill Saltworks site in order to facilitate the proposed large Bay development in Redwood City. This is a “significant hurdle” for the development, according to news reports. Back in March of 2010, consultants for DMB presented to the Redwood City Council a “Tier One” report to analyze whether the proposed development was preliminarily feasible or whether there were insurmountable obstacles. The three areas they discussed were legal issues, traffic questions and water concerns. While addressing the water issue, DMB unveiled a plan to trade Kern County water with local jurisdictions. Back then, the consultants, Redwood City staff and the council all made clear that it was very important to do a preliminary analysis of feasibility before precious resources and city staff time was spent on an environmental impact report. Today, we learn that the proposed Kern County water trade cannot likely be implemented. DMB needs to go back to its Tier One Analysis before proceeding any further. To do otherwise is to ignore the rationale for doing the Tier One Analysis in the first place.

DMB and Cargills’ greed
Editor, I am a resident of Harbor Village Mobile Home Park, located just behind the Cargill salt ponds. On April 19, I attended an informative presentation given by a DMB spokesman. His presentation only thinly veiled DMB and Cargill’s greed. This is what he said: 1. “Land is too expensive and there is not enough of it to build housing for all the jobs in this area. This development is the wave of the future. It will create high-density urban housing for the jobs here. We can’t have yards with white picket fences anymore.” 2. “This project addresses the social issues of: transportation, education and sea level rise.” Transportation Question: “Who builds/pays for the bridge over HIghway 101?” Answer: “DMB does to East Bayshore. Then, we give the city some money and they use that money to leverage a government grant for the rest of the project. There will be a four lane bridge, two lanes each way, just above the mobile home parks and behind the southern levy of the development.” Education DMB will put in the “pad” for the schools and charge a “door tax.” The schools are then funded through the conventional methods. HOA fees also support playing fields and levies.” Sea Level Rise Question: “How can

sea level rise be considered a ‘social issue?’” Answer: none.

What happened on 9/11?
Editor, Scott Abramson is one of few who still believe the “official story” of 9/11. He is incorrect to say that 3000 Americans died in hijacked planes. These people died in the controlled demolition of three high-rise steel-framed buildings in New York City. A story, which is supported by our government, is that these three buildings were brought down by fire. Never in history, prior to this day, did any such building come down due to fires. There is ample evidence that nano thermite, a highly explosive high-tech compound, was found in the dust of the explosions. The governmental agency that published the official story never mentioned the possibility of explosives being used, although many witnesses claimed to have heard many explosions. We need a new independent investigation of the events of that day. Many people doubt the story that our government has put forward. After such an investigation a second one may need to be done to figure out who did it? Maybe it was not 19 Muslims with box cutters.

y first question would be: Why would anyone want to be president of the United States? It’s long been the view of most political scientists it has become a larger job than any single person can handle. There is a constant barrage of criticisms for any single move or policy, even simple comments made or choices to take vacations from the job. One of the common petty pickin’ is to discredit Barack Obama for using a television monitor for most of his important speeches but he would be a fool not to. Every single word or phrase a president of the United State utters can have worldwide significance and can be spun into all kinds of ugly implications, as it will be by political opponents. That’s a certainty. And, comments made that are valid in one context can be thrown back, harmfully, in another. The unrelenting pressures on presidents can be emotional and nerve shattering. And, all the powers needed to be exercised in the office may not be within the framework of their original expertise. Harry Truman complained that his power to control his administration was simply limited by his own access, time and energy. He pointed out after he had given an order for some action or policy change, it sometimes would never be executed and he would not know because he didn’t have the time and energy to follow up. Jack Kennedy said much he same, especially not knowing what policies were in the works about which he was not advised, especially by the CIA. For example, he was blindsided by Nikita Khrushchev’s principal condition in the secret agreement to end the Cuban Missile Crisis that the American nuclear missiles stationed in Turkey to cover southern Russia be removed before the Soviets would remove theirs from Cuba that covered the southern United States. So, the question becomes do any of the declared candidates for the Republican Party’s nomination to take on Barack Obama have the “right stuff” to handle the job? I don’t think it serves a useful purpose to go into the announced philosophy and programs being touted in the Republican primaries — that’s the province of Republican primary voters. It does not become general public issues until one is finally nominated. But I can give voice to a few of my own impressions. I just find it hard to imagine Michele Bachmann handling such a super human effort. True, she is beautiful and articulate — if verging on demagoguery — but with her very narrow, religion-based appeal, her clear signs of bigotry toward some citizens and with no established views of international relations, that could be a disaster for the country and I’m certain the professional veteran “pols” in the party will strive to abort that possibility. Same could be said of Sarah Palin with her looselipped, bumper sticker comments that have no grounding in reality, Rick Perry, the handsome and affable governor of Texas, now leading the rest of the announced Republican candidates in the polls, on the surface appears to be a formidable prospect for making Obama a one-term president, but he is now the subject of intense vetting by the media and it is not coming out “pretty” so far. Newt Gingrich is known as an out-of-the box thinker and is perfectly capable of standing toe-to-toe in debate with the cerebral President Obama. However, he continues to be saddled with baggage involving his private life, and the fear that he will once again emerge as a divisive figure within the party and ruin the chances of Mitt Romney who has, along with Jon Huntsman, the presidential gravitas to remain the party’s best hopes of corralling the more moderate voters needed to clinch a victory. I’m just not able to take any of the other candidates seriously. Herman Cain has had a stellar career in business and broadcasting and is forcefully articulate but has a foot-in-mouth history that shows him to be somewhat ignorant of political affairs. Ron Paul — a Tea Party favorite — with the impossibly naive opposition of nearly all proposals that involve spending government funds, favoring eliminating nearly all government agencies and killing off income taxes — is “dead on arrival” as is the bigoted Rick Santorum with his narrow base of Evangelical Protestants. What about those huge, enthusiastic and worshipping crowds that build up a sense of destiny and entitlement that strokes the egos of those driven candidates and keeps them campaigning against all odds? Do we not remember the landslide crowds drawn by governor Michael Dukakis just before his landslide voting loss to George H. W. Bush in the 1988 elections?

Wall Street
The Dow Jones industrial average rose 134.72 points, or 1.2 percent, to close at 11,284.54. It was up 4.3 percent for the week after being down the past four. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 17.53, or 1.5 percent, to 1,176.80. It rose 4.7 percent for the week, its biggest gain since the week ended July 1. The technology-heavy Nasdaq composite index rose 60.22, or 2.5 percent, to 2,479.85. Boeing Co. rose 2.8 percent, the most of the 30 stocks that make up the Dow. Tiffany & Co. rose 9 percent, the most of any of the 500 stocks in the S&P index, after the luxury retailer raised its profit forecast for the year. In his speech, Bernanke focused on the long-term strengths of the U.S. economy. He said the “do not appear to have been permanently altered by the shocks of the past four years.” That shot of optimism helped lift markets. “In the American economy, the only thing that’s really lacking right now is confidence,” said David Kelly, chief market strategist at JPMorgan funds. “People who understand the limits of monetary policy also understand that the economy has what it takes to grow.”

Big movers
Stocks that moved substantially or traded heavily Friday on the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq Stock Market: NYSE Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Inc., up 73 cents at $8.57 The doughnut chain’s second-quarter profit rose, thanks to a one-time gain on the sale of its Mexican business interests. KBR Inc.,up $1.95 at $28.62 The engineering and construction company said that it is buying up to 10 million of its outstanding common shares. Nasdaq Research In Motion Ltd.,up 96 cents at $29.18 A Sterne Agee analyst upgraded the Blackberry maker’s shares to “Buy”saying its new phones will help attract new customers. First Solar Inc.,up $4.22 at $100.71 A Collins Stewart upgraded shares of the solar panel maker to “Buy”saying the company will benefit from its backlog of projects. DFC Global Corp.,up $2.61 at $21.71 The company, formerly known as Dollar Financial,said increased demand for its payday loans helped boost fourth-quarter profit. MICROS Systems Inc.,up $4.93 at $45.95 The company, which provides computer systems to hotels and restaurants,said its fourthquarter profit rose nearly 23 percent. Shoe Carnival Inc.,down 82 cents at $25.97 A drop in customer traffic at the shoe retailer contributed to a 34 percent drop in its secondquarter net income. OmniVision Technologies Inc., down $7.55 at $17.27 The image sensor maker posted a secondquarter forecast that fell short of what Wall Street was expecting.

The Dow Jones industrial average ended another turbulent week with a strong gain Friday after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the U.S. was headed for long-term economic growth. It was the first winning week in a month. Trading volume was light, a sign that many traders were leaving New York ahead of Hurricane Irene. The storm is expected to reach the region late Saturday night. A spokesman for the New York Stock Exchange said trading is expected to open as usual Monday. Bernanke announced no new economic stimulus measures during his speech at a conference in Jackson Hole, Wyo., as some investors had hoped. He did leave open the possibility of more action if another recession looks likely. Indexes fell sharply as the speech was released at 10 a.m. and it became clear that Bernanke was not promising additional support of the economy. The Dow Jones industrial average was down about 78 points shortly before the speech started and slumped as many as 220 points shortly after Bernanke started speaking. It recovered within an hour and stayed higher the rest of the day.

Behind Apple’s products is longtime designer Ive
By Rachel Metz
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO — Steve Jobs has been Apple’s most recognizable personality, but much of its cachet comes from its clean, inviting designs. For that, Apple can credit its head designer, Jonathan Ive. Ive, a self-effacing 44-year-old Brit, helped Jobs bring Apple back from the brink of financial ruin with the whimsical iMac computer, whose original models came in bright colors at a time when bland shades dominated the PC world. He later helped transform Apple into a consumer electronics powerhouse and the envy of Silicon Valley with the iPod, the

iPhone and, most recently, the iPad. In the wake of Jobs’ resignation as CEO, Apple must show that it can keep churning out head-turning products even without its charismatic leader. Apple’s chief operating officer, Tim Cook, is now CEO, taking on the role of Apple’s public face. But in many ways the real pressure will fall on Ive to make sure Apple continues its string of gadget successes. Ive, known to his friends as “Jony,” has led Apple’s design team since the mid’90s. Working closely with Jobs, Ive has built a strong legacy at Apple, ushering in products that are sleek and stylish, with rounded corners, few buttons, brushed

aluminum surfaces and plenty of slick glass. Apple’s pride in this work is evident even in the packaging: Open up any iPhone box, for example, and see Apple proudly proclaim, “Designed by Apple in California.” Six of Ive’s works, including the original iPod, are even part of the collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. People who have worked with Ive describe him as humble and sweet, quiet and shy, but also confident, hard-working and brilliant. Paola Antonelli, senior curator of architecture and design for MoMA, said she knows “hardly anybody that is so universally loved and admired” as Ive.

Pew: Half of U.S.adults now use social networks
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO — Half of all American adults are now on social networks, slightly more than a year ago, and use among Baby Boomers is growing, according to a new study. A report released Friday by the Pew Internet & American Life Project found that, of the U.S. adults who use the Internet, nearly two-thirds use social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. Among Baby Boomers aged 50 to 64, 32 percent said they use a social networking site on a typical day. That’s up

sharply from 20 percent a year ago. Seniors also are testing the waters of social networking, said Mary Madden, co-author of the report. “The graying of social networking sites continues, but the oldest users are still far less likely to be making regular use of these tools,” she said. Online social networks are most popular with young adults and women, and the “power users” of the social Web are women aged 18 to 29, the report found. Of this group, 89 percent use social networks and 69

percent do so on an average day. The report found “no significant differences” in use of social networks based on race, ethnicity, household income, education level or whether people live in urban, rural or suburban areas. Pew also asked respondents to describe their social networking experience in one word. The most common word, by far, was “good.” The survey was conducted April 26 to May 22 among 2,277 adults. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.

in business stockpiles suggests factories may step up production to fill future orders. The revision also showed consumers and businesses spent a bit more in the spring than in the government’s first estimate. Consumers spent more on health care, insurance and financial services. Businesses bought more equipment and software and invested in more buildings. Consumer spending was revised up to a 0.4 percent gain, slightly better than the first estimate of 0.1 percent. Still, that’s the weakest growth since the final three months of 2009. People bought fewer long-lasting manufactured goods, such as autos and appliances. Those purchases fell 5.1 percent this spring, the biggest drop since the fall of 2008. That partly reflects a shortage of autos on many dealer lots after the March 11 earthquake in Japan. Consumers spending accounts for 70 percent of growth.

Economy grew at slower rate this spring
By Christopher S. Rugaber

Business brief
Facebook boosts photo size, makes them load faster
SAN FRANCISCO — Facebook is increasing the size of photos that people post to its website and making them load twice as fast as before. Photos will now be 33 percent wider, with a variable height. The last time the company increased its photo size was in March 2010. Facebook said Friday that sharing photos is one of the most popular activities on its social network. Users upload more than 250 million photos each day. Facebook said the new features will be available to users over the next few days. The changes come the same week that Facebook said it is letting users pre-approve having their names attached to a photo posted by a friend before that photo appears on their profile. The tagged photo will still appear on the friend’s page and could show up in the news feeds of common friends. But users can remove their names after the photos are posted.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. economy grew at a meager 1 percent annual pace this spring, slower than previously estimated. The downward revision stoked fears that the economy is at risk of another recession. Fewer exports and weaker growth in business stockpiles led the government to lower its growth estimate for the April-June quarter from the initial 1.3 percent rate. The economy expanded only 0.7 percent in the first six months of the year, the Commerce Department said Friday. Nine of the past 11 recessions since World War II have been preceded by a period of growth of 1 percent or less, economists note. “The economy is teetering on the edge of a renewed recession,” said James Marple, an economist at TD Securities. “With such a thin margin

of error ... any renewed shock could push the economy over the edge.” Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke proposed no new steps to boost the economy in a highly anticipated speech in Jackson Hole, Wyo. Instead, he pressed Congress to do more to encourage expansion and hiring. Bernanke did say the U.S. is on track for long-term economic growth, which helped the stock market turn positive after earlier losses. The Dow Jones industrial average gained more than 150 points in afternoon trading. Broader indexes also increased. Economists said the revision hasn’t changed their growth forecasts. Most

expect slightly better growth in the second half of the year of roughly 1.5 percent to 2 percent. That level of growth would likely cool recession jitters. But it is not enough to make a noticeable dent in the unemployment rate, which was 9.1 percent in July. Some economists worry that this summer’s sell-off on Wall Street could hamper growth further, if consumers and business pull back on spending and investment. The stock market has lost 12 percent of its value since July 21. There were some good signs in the report. Corporate profits rose faster than the previous quarter. The decline

ABUJA, Nigeria — A car loaded with explosives crashed into the main United Nations’ building in Nigeria’s capital and exploded Friday, killing at least 18 people in one of the deadliest assaults on the international body in a decade. A radical Muslim sect blamed for a series of attacks in the country claimed responsibility for the bombing, a major escalation of its sectarian fight against Nigeria’s weak central government. The brazen assault in a neighborhood surrounded by heavily fortified diplomatic posts represented the first suicide attack to target foreigners in oil-rich Nigeria, where people already live in fear of the radical Boko Haram sect. The group, which has reported links to al-Qaida, wants to implement a strict version of Shariah law in the nation and is vehemently opposed to Western education and culture. While police officers and local officials have primarily borne the brunt of Boko Haram’s rage, now everyone seems to be a target in a nation often divided by religion and ethnicity.

Tripoli calmer with Gadhafi’s men gone
TRIPOLI — Tripoli began to look like a solidly rebel-held city on Friday, the calmest day in the capital since Moammar Gadhafi’s opponents swept in nearly a week ago. Some even celebrated in the streets, marching and chanting, “Hold your head high! You are a free Libyan.” There were still occasional gunbattles, but nothing like the bloody firefight Thursday in which rebels drove loyalists from a neighborhood close to Gadhafi’s captured compound. As the fighting waned, the International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva expressed concern about treatment of detainees on both sides. The ICRC has been able to visit some prisoners, but “there are hundreds more probably,” spokesman Steven Anderson said. Dozens of decomposing bodies were piled up in and near an abandoned hospital next to the Gadhafi compound, revealing some of the war’s brutality. One hospital room had 21 bodies lying on gurneys. The floors were covered with shattered glass and bloodstains, and medical equipment was strewn about. It was unclear when the men died or who killed them, but they had darker skin than most Libyans. Gadhafi had recruited fighters from sub-Saharan Africa. Some residents emerged gingerly from homes where they had taken cover for days. They looked upon a shattered city, largely without power or water and stinking with garbage, but also with no sign of the man who had ruled their lives for the past 42 years. Gadhafi’s whereabouts were unknown. His portraits have been trampled, his green flags shredded and replaced with the rebel red, black and green. Umm Yahya, who limped on a cane through Tripoli’s shuttered downtown, leaning on her daughter for help, said her family had been surviving for days on pasta and tomato paste,

Deadly casino attack shocks Mexicans
MONTERREY, Mexico — Mexicans have endured plenty of horrific crimes during their country’s bloody five-year war against drug gangs: bodies hanging from overpasses, beheadings, mass slayings of migrants and gunfights on crowded steets. The torching of the casino that killed at least 52 people on Thursday, however, was a shocking new low for many. In a nationally televised speech, an angry President Felipe Calderon declared three days of mourning on Friday and labeled the attack on the Casino Royale in Monterrey the worst against civilians in the nation’s recent history. “We are not confronting common criminals,” he said. “We are facing true terrorists who have gone beyond all limits.”

but the fear and suffering in six months of civil war were worth it to taste freedom. “We can speak freely now. We can talk on the phone,” she said with a tired smile. “People are comfortable now spiritually and with that, anything is possible.” Rebels were pushing Gadhafi fighters to Tripoli’s outskirts. Abdul Majid Mgleta, a rebel military chief, said there were still some pockets of resistance, but he hoped to take full control over the capital and capture Gadhafi within days. Still, Tripoli’s rebel military commander was confident enough to declare the capital liberated. “Libya is now free with dignity,” AbdelHakim Belhaj told reporters Friday night. He added that hundreds of Gadhafi fighters had surrendered in the past two days. Rebel fighters and NATO turned their attention 250 miles (400 kilometers) east to Gadhafi’s hometown of Sirte, his last major bastion of support. British warplanes struck a large bunker there, while local rebel commander Fadl-Allah Haron said that if city residents don’t surrender fast, “a battle will be waiting for them there.” In the five-day battle over Tripoli, at least 230 people were killed and hundreds more wounded, according to doctors at three major hospitals. With bodies still in the streets, the real toll is likely far higher. In the Abu Salim neighborhood, the scene of Thursday’s ferocious clashes, there was massive destruction along the main road, including torched cars.

Bears looking to improve Knights begin a new era
By Julio Lara
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

There are ups and downs in any high school football program. Three years ago, Menlo-Atherton was on top of the world, winning a Central Coast Section title. Now two years removed from one of their lowest points (a 1-9 season in 2009), the Menlo-Atherton football team is hoping that 2011 will mark a continued upswing and restore luster to one of the premiere football programs in the county. “My only expectation is that we get better every day,” said M-A head coach Sione Taufoou, the reigning Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division Coach of the Year. “On the field, off the field, it’s about building a program, building a mentality that we, as a program, are going to get better every day. We’re going to compete every day. Regardless of who we’re playing against or who we’re practicing with, we’re going to compete and get better.” You don’t necessarily think “rebuilding” when thinking about the Bears, given the talent that has come out of the school in recent years. But in sense, Taufoou is taking a “crawl-before-you-can-run” approach to the program he took over last season. “Really for me, it goes back to building that determination,” Taufoou said. “We don’t have 50 kids on this team, or even 35. But I’ll tell you what, I have about 25 kids that are willing to play for each other and play together. I think that’s for big step for us.” The 2010 season mirrored the program, with a rough 0-3 start to the year, and a 4-4 finish that saw the Bears make it back to the postseaon after a year off. So the question for the Bears in 2011 is, was one season under Taufoou enough to build a solid foundation? “We have a good group,” Taufoou said. “They’re a hard working group. The growth from last year has been tremendous. Just being around the kids, watching their maturity, understanding and respecting each other. I just hope it all pays off on the field.”

Former King’s Academy-Sunnyvale running back Amir Carlisle, who is currently in the mix to see significant playing time at USC as freshman, had been the story for the Knights the last three years. First-year head coach William Gittens is hoping this will be the last time this season Carlisle and Knights will be mentioned in the same sentence. “That’s who we were for the last two, three years. I think our team will start playing more like a team. Our kids are trying to find their own identity. But it gets kind of tiring hearing about Amir all the time,” Gittens said. “[This year’s team] is going to find a way to find their own recognition. They want people to talk about the Knights. We want to change the perception that we’re a one-man show.” Gittens, who served as the Knights’ defensive coordinator the last four years, said the emphasis placed on one player the last couple of years may have contributed to a lack of players turning out for the 2011 team. Gittens said many eligible players did not come out for the team and he believes it’s because of all the emphasis placed on one player. This year’s squad features only about 23 players, as opposed to the 35-40 the Knights had drawn in the past. “This is a big drop for us,” Gittens said. “We have probably 16 guys that can really play. If we lose any of those pieces, it’s going to be a long season.” In hopes of drawing more interest in the

Skyline women’s soccer has tons of potential
By Julio Lara
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Under 10-year head coach Kevin Corsiglia, the Skyline women’s soccer team has been a model of consistency for the past six years. In that time, the Lady Trojans have not finished lower than third in the Coast Conference — a stretch that included a championship in 2009. In 2011, with the addition of some explosive freshmen and the return of almost the entire midfield, expect that consistency to continue. “We return a good, solid group of players,” Corsiglia said. “The sophomores that are coming back this year got a lot of experience and playing time last year, so they’re going to step in and hopefully, this year, be ready to play with a year under their belt — which is nice at this level.” The Lady Trojans finished third in the Coast Conference last season, making the playoffs but falling in a wet and crazy game against Foothill 1-0. Still, the season will be remembered as a success in large part due to the emergence of some players who will make an impact in 2011. Probably none are more important than returning Coast Conference Midfielder of the Year Adriana Cortes. Cortes led the Lady Trojans in scoring last season with 45 points (19 goals, 7 assists). “She’s definitely one of those Player-of-the-Year type candidates,” Corsiglia said. “She holds down the middle of the field. She has tremendous vision on the ball. She’s a tremendous 1-v-1 player, she knows

the game, she feels the game. She’s the type of player you trust to be both an offensive and defensive player. She can hit a ball from any point on the field and put it in the back of the net. She’s just special player who has Division I talent at this level. Those are the kind of players you hope you get.” A lot of the load will fall on Cortes’ shoulders with the departure of Midori Sera, who has transferred to a four-year university in Tennessee. But if there is anywhere Corsiglia has considerable depth (despite having one of the smallest rosters he’s ever had during his 10year run) it’s the midfield. Cortes will be complimented by the play of returners Arianna Picazo (5 goals, 2 assists) and Alexis Cuellar (1 goal, 3 assists). “Alexis is a hardworking, just a really fit-type player that can work the whole field for you,” Corsiglia said. “She makes good decisions with the ball, she can defend, she understand how to communicate, so it’s nice to have a player like her back there (as a holding midfielder) because you don’t have to worry about her not being involved in the game.” “Arianna has great footwork, she can hit a ball, she can defend, she loves working combinations. So it’s nice to have that triangle of players there in the middle where our strength is.” It might turn out to be super-nice for the Lady Trojans if things line up the way Corsiglia is hoping they will. With experience in the midfield,

Adriana Cortes, a sophomore midfielder out of Woodside Priory, led the Trojans in scoring last year and is considered a Division I talent.
Corsiglia will rely on a couple of exciting newcomers to find the back of the net. And with a defense and goalkeeping that might be a question mark for the beginning of the season, Jazmin Cazares’ and Katlyn Jaques’ contributions cannot be understated. Peninsula Athletic League fans will recognize Jaques from her time as a Terra Nova Tiger. “I felt she was the best player on that team for two years,” Corsiglia said. “She is physically the type of player that is going to excel at this level. She’s strong, she’s fast and she can play pretty much any position.” Maybe Corsiglia’s jewel of new faces is Cazares, the former Mills Viking and PAL Ocean Division Player of the Year (in 2009) and AllLeague First Team member (in 2010). “Jazmin was a dynamic scorer in high school,” Corsiglia said. “And

when I watched her play in high school, I knew her skills could transition to this level, but I also knew she needed to raise her level of play. I think for the first time in quite a few years, we’re going to have a legitimate scoring presence at the top. If she improves her movement off the ball, she’s going to be dangerous.” The list of players to watch does not stop there. Returning in 2011 are Janice and Jazmin Garcia, who combined for 10 points in 2010. Their contributions in the back will be huge for the Lady Trojans with the inexperienced Dana Alazzeh manning the goal posts. “Our goalkeeping is going to be a work in progress all year,” Corsiglia said. “It’s the not the way you want to go into a season, but like I said, I’m very optimistic about our offense. I’m hoping that if games are 5-4 this year, that they’re 5-4 in our favor. They might not be 1-0, but I don’t mind winning games either way.” “The league title goes through (City College of San Francisco),” Corsiglia said, when asked where his team fits in the Coast Conference scheme of things. “We beat everyone in our conference last year, except for them. So it’s pretty simple for us. I think we can hang with everybody in our conference. The two games we played against them last year, we flat-out got dominated both times. We’ll see what happens this year. I know they’re going to be good again. It’s a good challenge to have, it’s good to have something to point towards.”

Serra’s Wilson commits to Colorado
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

Serra senior running back/defensive back Erich Wilson has verbally committed to play and attend school at University of Colorado, which joins the new Pac-12 Conference this year. Wilson averaged 7.9 yards per carry, rushing for 972 yards on just 123 carries. He scored 10 touchdowns as a running back and returned a punt for another. As a sophomore, he rushed for 231 yards (4.71 yards per carry) on 49 carries and scored three touchdowns in limited action. Wilson’s best position, however, may be as a defensive back. At 6foot-1, 200 pounds, he ran a blazing 4.38 40-yard dash this summer. “Erich’s future is at corner,” Serra coach Patrick Walsh said in an email. “6-1, 200-pound corners who run as fast as Erich does are rare. if he makes a commitment to play cornerback, he will play for a very long time. “With that being said, he’s also a dynamic running back.” Wilson will be joining 2009 Serra graduate David Bakhtiari with the Buffaloes. Bakhtiari was the starting right defensive end as a redshirt freshman last year. Walsh believes both have what it

takes to become professional football players. “On paper, both are NFL guys,” Walsh said in the email. “Obviously, a lot has to happen in the next few years to achieve that goal, but both Erich and David have the talent, work ethic and character to get there.”

SAN JOSE — The San Jose Sharks signed forward Logan Couture to a two-year, $5.75 million contract extension through the 2013-14 season on Friday. Couture was already scheduled to make about $1.25 million this season and could have been a restricted free agent next summer. Instead, he will get paid $2.75 million in 2012-13 and $3 million in the final year of the contract. The 22-year-old Couture was a finalist this past season for the Calder Trophy that goes to the NHL’s top rookie, losing out to Carolina’s Jeff Skinner. Couture was second on the team to Patrick Marleau with 32 goals and added 24 assists to help the Sharks win their fourth straight Pacific Division title. Couture finished second among all NHL rookies in goals and points, and ranked first with eight game-winning goals, 10 power-play goals and 235 shots on goal. Couture added seven goals and seven assists in the postseason as the Sharks made it to the Western Conference final for the second straight season. San Jose lost to

Vancouver in five games. “Obviously, it was a successful year last year for myself,” Couture said. “My goal coming into this year is to improve Logan Couture as a player. I’m not looking at specific statistical numbers. I want to improve my all-around game, be better on the penalty kill. I still want to score goals and points, but I want to just improve as a player.” With this deal in place, the Sharks have their top two forward lines, top two defensive pairings and starting goalie Antti Niemi under contract through the 2012-13 season as general manager Doug Wilson has made a priority of keeping his best players. The Sharks signed long-term deals with Marleau and Joe Pavelski last offseason, kept captain Joe Thornton off the open market by giving him an extension through the 2013-14 season last October, gave Niemi a four-year deal in March before he could become a free agent and signed newly acquired All-Star defenseman Brent Burns to a five-year extension earlier this month.

Pryor begins practicing with Raiders
By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NAPA — On his second play of his first NFL practice with the Oakland Raiders, Terrelle Pryor fumbled the snap and had to fall on the ball. He had one more fumbled snap and a few errant passes in his 16 plays during team sessions, looking more like someone who hadn’t played football since January than a future franchise quarterback. That’s all to be expected considering he just jumped right in on his first day with the Raiders, while most everyone else has had more than four weeks of training camp. “The problem is that now I’m 17, 18 days, practices behind right now,” Pryor said Friday. “I’m just playing catch-up right now. Some of the stuff is getting there, and I’m starting to get familiar with some of the stuff. But it’s been one day. Give me a couple of days, and I should be able to fill it in and feel a lot more comfortable.” Pryor was taken in the third round of the supplemental draft on Monday and signed a four-year contract Thursday night. He had to digest the playbook, learn the terminology and be told how coach Hue Jackson wants quarterbacks to call out plays at the line of scrimmage. Pryor spent a lot of time at the side of Jackson or offensive coordinator Al Saunders, taking in as much information as he could. “I wanted him to hear how a play sounds, I wanted him to get a feel for how we go about

doing it, learn our tempo,” Jackson said. “This is the first day for him. Kudos to him. I thought he did a good job, first day, and we weren’t able to give him a lot of information. All this happened very quickly but got him here. Obviously he’s here, he’s ours and we’ll get him ready.” Pryor threw nine passes in team sessions, completing four of them with a few far off target. He also fumbled a pair of snaps on his seven running plays as he starts the process of learning how to be a pro. Pryor will not play in Oakland’s third exhibition game on Sunday against New Orleans and then will have three more practices before the preseason finale at Seattle on Sept. 2. Jackson said it was too early to determine if he’d be able to play then. After that, Pryor will be ineligible to practice with the Raiders until serving a five-game suspension. When he was allowed to enter Monday’s supplemental draft, Pryor was handed a suspension by Commissioner Roger Goodell for the same number of games he would have sat out had he returned to Ohio State. Pryor has said he will not appeal the suspension. “I didn’t have to be in the supplemental draft, and I was allowed in,” Pryor said. “I’m just going to take the opportunity. I’m not going to bad mouth it or give my opinion on the good side, bad side. It goes both ways. I’m just glad they gave me the opportunity.” Pryor gave up his final season with the Buckeyes after an investigation into the team’s memorabilia-for-cash scandal that cost coach Jim Tressel his job. He would not

address what he told the NCAA about what went on at Ohio State. Pryor is coming off his best season statistically at Ohio State, throwing for 2,772 yards and 27 touchdowns with 11 interceptions. He ran for 754 yards and four TDs while helping the Buckeyes win the Sugar Bowl. Because he is 6-foot-5, 232 pounds and was clocked at 4.36 seconds in the 40-yard dash at his pro day, there has been speculation that Pryor could eventually play receiver or tight end in the NFL. But he is starting his career at quarterback. “The guy is big, athletic,” Jackson said. “I think he can throw it. He looks like a quarterback, feels like a quarterback, sounds like a quarterback, and I’m very excited to work with him.” Pryor begins his career behind starter Jason Campbell and backups Kyle Boller and Trent Edwards on the depth chart. All three of those quarterbacks are in the final year of their contracts so Pryor will be groomed for the future. Pryor wore No. 6 instead of the No. 2 he had in college at Ohio State. The Raiders haven’t had anyone wear No. 2 since releasing

JaMarcus Russell in May 2010 after three horrible seasons in Oakland. “Coach won’t let me wear No. 2,” Pryor said. “Why, I don’t know? You tell me. He won’t let me wear No. 2. I’m just going off what coach tells me.” Pryor wasn’t the only new player on the field for the Raiders’ final practice before breaking camp in Napa and heading back to their headquarters in Alameda. Oakland also signed veteran cornerback Lito Sheppard and gave him a chance right away. Sheppard is a former Pro Bowler who has bounced around the past few seasons and was out of a job at the start of training camp. He started two games last season for Minnesota before becoming a free agent. He started nine games for the New York Jets in 2009 and three for Philadelphia the previous season. He had been a starter for the Eagles before that, intercepting 14 passes between 2004-06. Sheppard said he’s very comfortable playing man-to-man coverage, the staple of Oakland’s defense. “That’s what I primarily did the majority of my career,” he said. “It’s definitely tough on the corners but hey, that’s what I do, that’s what got me into this league and obviously that’s what’s going to keep me around or take me out.” The Raiders are thin at cornerback following injuries to starter Chris Johnson and rookie DeMarcus Van Dyke. Oakland has only one healthy veteran on the roster in Stanford Routt, while young players like Van Dyke and second-year pro Walter McFadden have struggled.

The program has never lacked for offensively explosive players and this year is no exception. “We have four or five kids that do well with the ball in their hands,” Taufoou said. Chief among them are running backs Taylor Mashack and Cameron Moody. They’ll carry the bulk of the ball, although Taufoou said that the Bears have three or four guys that can start any given game. Also returning is quarterback Uilifeleti Fonua. “He took last season to heart,” Taufoou said. “And he got better.” Austin Clarence will provide speed on the outside for the Bears. “We’ll go as the line goes,” Taufoou said. “We have a young line, but I think that they’re a smart group, they’re a pretty athletic group, they work well together. We just have to get some reps in. It might take us some time to develop, but we’ll be OK.” Defensively, the Bears return a fast secondary, led by Conor Sweetnamn, a senior. Clarence will see time at the free safety position. Always known for having players with great size and athleticism, M-A continues that tradition with the emergence of Rickey Vea. “One of the biggest surprises for us, one of the pleasant surprises for us, was his development,” Taufoou

Giants make two runs stick
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LSU QB booked in fight
BATON ROUGE, La. — While Jordan Jefferson’s teammates were practicing Friday for a season opener that is now merely a week away, the quarterback was hiring a new lawyer to defend him against felony charges. Jefferson and t e a m m a t e Joshua Johns turned themselves in and were released on $5,000 bond Jordan each Friday after Jefferson police obtained arrest warrants on charges of second-degree battery, stemming from their alleged roles in a fight outside Shady’s bar in Baton Rouge on Aug. 19. The players have been suspended indefinitely by the school. “It’s certainly a tough time for our team when they see a teammate in peril,” coach Les Miles said, describing some players in tears when they first gathered to talk about moving forward without their projected starting quarterback and reserve linebacker. “It’s hard on them. I don’t believe there were many that believed that was the outcome, and it took some time for them to understand what was going on. “This is not how I intended to spend my preseason,” Miles added. “I wanted to spend it much more on football.” Two months ago, Jefferson was one of the featured counselors at the Manning family’s football camp in south Louisiana, talking about maturity, leadership and his hope to leading LSU firmly into the national championship picture. He was already 20-7 as a starter, giving him a chance to challenge Tommy Hodson’s LSU career record of 31 victories by a starting quarterback.

SAN FRANCISCO — Jeff Keppinger hit a two-run double, M a d i s o n Bumgarner won for just the second time in six starts and the San Francisco Giants held off the Houston Astros 2-1 on Friday night. Bumgarner Madison (8-12) hung Bumgarner tough as he waited for his team to finally give him some support, outpitching J.A. Happ (4-15), who lost his fourth straight start a day after being recalled from Triple-A. San Francisco stayed three games behind first-place Arizona in the NL West after the Diamondbacks beat San Diego 5-0 in the desert.

The Giants bounced back after dropping the opener of the fourgame series 3-1 on Thursday night — their third loss in four meetings with the Astros over the last week. It sure felt like an October night at sold-out AT&T Park: cool, with a dense fog hovering over center field. Whether the defending World Series champion Giants play in October this year remains to be seen. The reeling, stumbling Giants won for just the ninth time in their last 27 games and fourth in 11. San Francisco has played six straight games decided by two or fewer runs, and nine of 11. Keppinger’s two RBIs gave him five since he joined the Giants in a July 19 trade from Houston that sent Thursday night winning pitcher Henry Sosa to the Astros. Manager Bruce Bochy switched up his lineup, sitting the slumping Aubrey Huff and resting an ailing Pablo Sandoval. Bochy wouldn’t say whether Huff — batting .083 (1

for 12) on the homestand — would stay out of the starting lineup for multiple games. Mark DeRosa played first base most of the night in his place, while Brandon Belt remained in left field. “We’re mixing it up to see if we can’t put a spark in the lineup, ignite it, get it going,” Bochy said. “We’ve had our struggles all year with it. It’s been ongoing. It’d be nice to come out of it this last month, which they’re capable of doing.” Huff was booed when he hit a high popup for a quick out in his first atbat of the night in the seventh. Bumgarner got into trouble in the seventh after hitting leadoff batter Matt Downs, then allowing Jose Altuve’s single. Moments after a mound visit from pitching coach Dave Righetti, catcher Chris Stewart tried to pick off a wandering Downs at second but threw wildly into center field as both runners advanced on the error.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A’s 15, Red Sox 5
Gio Gonzalez (11-11) gave up four runs, seven hits, striking out five and walking three in 5 2-3 innings for his second straight win after losing five in a row. He picked up just his third road win in 10 decisions. Leading 2-1 in the Josh Willingham fourth, the Athletics scored six runs off Wakefield — four coming after Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s passed ball on Weeks’ strikeout with two outs. Sizemore started the scoring with a home run into the last row of Green Monster seats in left, making it 4-1. After Weeks fanned but reached first, Coco Crisp walked before Hideki Matsui doubled both home with a drive off the center-field wall. Willingham then homered into the Monster seats, his 23rd, making it 8-1.

BOSTON — Scott Sizemore and Josh Willingham each hit two-run homers during a six-run fourth inning that carried the Oakland Athletics to a 15-5 win over the Boston Red Sox on Friday, denying Tim Wakefield’s bid for his 200th win. The win comes one day after the A’s lost 229 at Yankee Stadium, allowing a major leaguerecord three grand slams. Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz hit consecutive homers for Boston, which opened a nine-game homestand after going 6-2 on a recent trip through Texas and Kansas City. Wakefield (6-6), making his sixth try to become the 108th pitcher to reach 200 wins, gave up eight runs — four earned — on eight hits, walking two and striking out three. He’s 0-3 with a 4.97 ERA during the six games. Jemile Weeks and Cliff Pennington each had three hits, and Willingham drove in four runs for the Athletics, who won for the seventh time in nine road games after losing 30 of their previous 37 away from home.

Boston outfielder Darnell McDonald pitched the ninth, allowing Willingham’s tworun double after walking the first two batters. For a while it looked as though it could be similar to Thursday afternoon in New York when Oakland opened a 7-1 lead before its pitching staff was pounded. Boston answered with a pair of runs in the bottom of the fourth on consecutive homers by Pedroia and Ortiz. Pedroia’s was his 17th, tying his career high set in 2008 when he won the AL’s MVP award. Jacoby Ellsbury tripled and scored. The Red Sox had runners on first and second with one out in the sixth, but Gonzalez got McDonald to pop to second. Brian Fuentes relieved and Ellsbury fouled weakly to third. Boston stranded two more in the seventh. Oakland ended any likelihood of a comeback by scoring four in the eighth against Matt Albers, opening a 13-4 lead. Boston grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first on Adrian Gonzalez’s RBI single before Oakland took the lead with two in the second, coming

on RBI singles by David DeJesus and Pennington. NOTES: Red Sox LF Carl Crawford didn’t start, getting a night off to rest before playing both ends of Saturday’s doubleheader. “He was cramping up a little bit (Thursday),” said manager Terry Francona, who hoped to rest some other players but also knew the club has both Sunday and Monday off after Sunday’s afternoon game was moved to Saturday night because of the expected severe weather from Hurricane Irene. ... Boston is planning to go with Jon Lester (13-6) in the opener on Saturday against Guillermo Moscoso (6-7), scheduled for a noon start. Erik Bedard (4-9) is slated to face Graham Godfrey (1-1) in the nightcap that’s planned for 5 p.m. Godfrey will be recalled from Triple-A Sacramento before the game. He made four starts with the A’s earlier this season. ... Oakland recalled left-handers Josh Outman and Jerry Blevins from Sacramento before the game, sending Jordan Norberto and Bruce Billings to the Triple-A club.

eighth in the season standings. “We’ve had a bit of momentum here the last few races,” Hunter-Reay said. “We’ve been quick the whole year but it’s just putting it all together. It comes down to putting yourself in position to win, which is what happened at New Hampshire.” The 31-year-old Hunter-Reay is coming off his first IndyCar win this season and third of his career. It didn’t come easy. The course at Loudon was slippery from rains that fell throughout the day and the race was marred by multiple at the line of scrimmage and will add the threat of the run to the Knights’ arsenal. “We’ve never really had a true quarterback at our school. Now that we have the pistol, we’re trying to put the ball in the air about 40 percent of the time. This is a good year to do that because our defense is so solid. We can take more of a chance (on offense),” Gittens said. While Gittens plans to throw the ball a little bit more, the bulk of the offense will still come via the ground. And the Knights still have an Amir on the team: senior running back Amir Pappu. Joining him in the backfield will be Steven Kmak and firstyear varsity player Caleb Gomez. Add in the quarterback running more as well as a few others, Gittens is hoping to make up for the loss of one key player with the addition of four or five. “I think we’ll surprise teams with our running game. It’s going to be the majority of what we do. We’re not going to feature just one back. We have about four guys that really run the ball (well). Gomez is probably going to be one of the best fullbacks (in the league). He really punishes people when he runs,” Gittens said. “They’re not [Carlisle] types of running backs. They have decent speed, they know how to read holes. “We benefit by having a good crashes, including one involving Hunter-Reay’s Andretti Autosport teammate Danica Patrick that led to the controversial finish. Patrick’s car slid sideways in the wet conditions following a restart with about 10 laps to go, causing a multiple-car accident that knocked out several drivers including Team Penske’s Will Power, currently second in the standings behind Dario Franchitti of Target Chip Ganassi Racing. Franchitti’s teammate, Scott Dixon, and Spain’s Oriol Servia believed they offensive line.” The Knights feature three big, solid offensive linemen: senior center Ben Justice (6-0, 210), along with a pair of juniors, Daniel Peoples (6-2, 210) and Division I prospect Nate Velichko (6-5, 280). “We could have brought [Velichko] up last year as a sophomore,” Gittens said. “We went to a camp this summer and played with guys that are big hitters and he was driving them out. He can manhandle you.” Because of the lack of depth, the offensive line will also see plenty of snaps on the defensive side of the ball. Velichko, Justice, Peoples and Gomez give the Knights a formidable front four. Pappa will anchor the linebackers while Pappu and Kmak will lock down two of the defensive back positions. “We’re going to keep that defensive line moving because we’re so quick,” Gittens said. “Our guys have been playing faster. It’s not so difficult for them. Defense will key for us early (in the season).” One position that often gets overlooked is the kicking game. Gittens, however, believes kicker/punter Brian Bostrom could be the Knights’ secret weapon as they will need to win the field-position battle. With Bostrom’s propensity for kicking balls into the end zone on kickoffs, a leg that is good on field goal attempts passed Hunter-Reay before the yellow flag came out but IndyCar series president of competition and operations Brian Barnhart made the decision to revert the finishing order to what it had been before the final restart. Newman/Haas Racing and Target Chip Ganassi appealed the decision but a panel upheld Barnhart’s decision earlier this week and Hunter-Reay was awarded the victory.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

Hunter-Reay hopes to be seventh different winner at Infineon
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SONOMA — There have been six different winners in the six years since IndyCar added Infineon Raceway to its schedule in 2005. Ryan Hunter-Reay sees no reason why he can’t make it seven. Hunter-Reay, whose Aug. 14 win in New Hampshire was upheld by an appeals panel earlier this week, has been the hottest driver on the openwheel series over the past two months. With five consecutive top-10 finishes, he’s jumped from 21st to

Don’t expect much passing
The road course at Infineon

Raceway is one of the most unique on the IndyCar circuit. Spread over rolling hills not far from the Napa Valley wine country, the 12-turn, 2.303-mile course presents drivers with challenges they don’t normally confront on ovals. The key to winning the 75-lap race at Infineon has come down to qualifying. Each of the past three winners — Will Power (2010), Dario Franchitti (2009) and Helio Castroneves (2008) — all started from the pole. No driver has won here qualifying lower than fifth.

future, Gittens plans to open up the offense a lot more this season. He wants to make football fun and is instituting more offensive wrinkles this season. In addition to running the wing-T, which features a man in motion across the line of scrimmage on every play, the Knights will also run the double-wing, AKA “scrum” offense, as well as a “Pistol”-style set — which is kind of a hybrid shotgun formation. “We can come out in any one of our sets and we do a lot (of different things),” Gittens said. “We know we can run the double wing, so we’ve been trying to perfect this new offense. We’ve changed,” Gittens said. “We have a lot of things we can do. Our quarterback has a good arm, so we can catch you (with a big play through the air). We’re going to get [opponents] by out-playcalling [them].” Pulling the trigger for the offense is senior quarterback Cameron Pappa, who will also pull double-duty as a linebacker. No longer will the Knights quarterback take the snap, pivot and hand the ball off. He will be required to make a lot more decisions

up to and a little beyond 40 yards, as well as good hang time on punts, Gittens believes Bostrom can be a major plus. “Field position will be a huge thing for us this year. We’re not going to be the big [play] team. We’re not that type of team. We’re going to have to control the ball,” Gittens said. The most important factor, as far as Gittens is concerned, is having players that want to play in the program. He said about 34 kids turned up for the beginning of summer workouts, but a number of them gradually dropped out. King’s Academy might not be the biggest team, but the players are dedicated. “For the next couple years, [the goal is] about changing the identity (of the program). This last summer, they worked the hardest I’ve ever seen. We’re changing the mentality of our players,” Gittens said. “Our kids are in shape and they’re ready to play.”

Rudd embraces ‘Idiot’side
By Derrik J. Lang
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Paul Rudd hops from one sofa to another to another as the title character in “Our Idiot Brother,” and that’s sort of what the film itself does, too. Rudd stars as an amiable, ambling dude named Ned who has no real goals in life; what he does have is a guilelessness that consistently gets him into trouble, both with his family and with the law. (At the film’s start, he sells pot to a uniformed police officer, which earns him some brief time behind bars.) He has a knack for always saying or doing the wrong thing, even

LOS ANGELES — For more than a decade, Paul Rudd has served as a comedic chameleon, effortlessly moving from sidekick (”Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” “The 40-Year-Old Virgin”) to scene stealer (”Knocked Up,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) to straight man (”Dinner for Schmucks,” “I Love You, Man”). He’s tackling his most transformative role yet in “Our Idiot Brother.”

am delighted to introduce fellow columnists Andrew Lyu and Chloee Weiner and myself as this year’s contributors to the weekly teen column, “Student News.” We are truly excited to have the opportunity to write for the Daily Journal this year and my hope is that each edition of “Student News” not only informs readers about local teenage life but also provokes disquisition. But before we begin I would first like to give some background on each of us. My name is Jenna Chambers and I am a senior at Carlmont High School where I am co-editor in chief of the student newspaper, The Highlander. I started as a staff writer on the school newspaper my sophomore year knowing little about journalism but anxious to get started and willing to learn. Throughout the year, not only did I see my journalism skills improve drastically, but also found an interest in writing feature articles and spent the majority of the year writing various articles featuring students who had endured hardships in their lives. Aside from journalism, I am a member of the Carlmont choral program which I thoroughly enjoy. Currently, I am in rehearsal for the annual choir pops concerts this year titled, “British Invasion.” I also have a profound passion for the Spanish language and culture which I have been studying for 12 years. As an ambitious senior at Aragon High School, Lyu said that his greatest challenge in the upcoming year will likely be remembering to sleep.

Size shouldn’t matter when it comes to scary creatures. After all, plenty of people are terrified of rats and spiders. Yet savage and ugly as the tiny monsters are in “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,” they’re not as frightening as the filmmakers would have you believe. These wee beasties are not all that interesting, either, and frankly, neither is the movie. Producer and co-writer Guillermo del Toro and director Troy Nixey manage a lot of creepy atmosphere in their story of a couple (Guy Pearce and Katie Holmes) and a young girl menaced by nasty little things that swarm up from beneath the mansion they’re restoring. With the girl at the heart of the tale and del Toro’s name the big selling point, the filmmakers want you thinking of the movie as a cousin to his masterful “Pan’s Labyrinth,” another story of a girl caught up in a world of fantastical terror. “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” is an awfully tame cousin, though, the creatures uninvolving and their antics more irritating than petrifying. Based on a 1973 television movie that starred Kim Darby and Jim Hutton, del Toro and co-writer Matthew Robbins’ update has architect Alex Hurst (Pearce) and girlfriend and collaborator Kim (Holmes) in the home stretch of their restoration of Blackwood Manor. A promising prologue lays out terrible doings that beset the manor’s old master, who discovered that

‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’is tame compared to other Guillermo del Toro movies.
small, ravenous creatures with an appetite for children’s teeth were living below his home. What perfect timing that the arrival of Alex’s moody daughter, Sally (Bailee Madison), leads to the discovery of a secret basement sealed decades ago to imprison the creatures, known as the homunculi. Now the monsters have just what they want: freedom to roam the house through the air ducts and a child with a mouth full of tasty calcium. Speaking in whispery voices, the homunculi are obnoxious taunters more than predators for much of the movie, causing “Gremlins”-style havoc, only without the gags. Naturally, Alex and Kim don’t believe Sally’s wild tales of monsters stalking her, assuming instead that the girl is just acting out over the neglectful mom who packed her off to Blackwood Manor, her inattentive dad and his interloper girlfriend. The thinly developed characters move in narrow emotional ranges. Humans wander around with perpetually furrowed brows, homunculi scoot about like the hissy, conniving little creeps they are. The tension del Toro and Nixey create promises much more than it delivers. When the homunculi finally step up the action, their confrontations with the humans seem more silly than scary. That’s partly because of the unsatisfying mythology the filmmakers offer to explain the creatures. We’re told how vile and black-hearted the homunculi are, yet what we get on screen is a brood of pests somewhat more adept at house-wrecking than rodents. These are petty, stunted monsters that certainly are worth being afraid of if you were locked in with them in a dark basement. Watching them in a dark theater, though, there isn’t that much to fear. “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,” a FilmDistrict release, is rated R for violence and terror. Running time: 100 minutes. Two stars out of four.

Del Toro’s afraid of the day
By Lauri Neff
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

People in the news
Carrey launches new website with video love letter
LOS ANGELES — Jim Carrey is launching his new website with a bang. The 49-year-old actor posted a video love letter to “The Help” star Emma Stone on www.jimcarreytrulife.com Wednesday that many online deemed “creepy.” The one-minute, 53-second video shows Carrey speaking into a handheld camera and sincerely professing his love for the 22-yearold actress. Jim Carrey Carrey says Stone is “all the way beautiful. Not just pretty, but smart, and kindhearted” and that “if I were a lot younger, I would marry you.” He goes on to say they would have “chubby little freckle-faced kids.”

NEW YORK — Guillermo del Toro may be the mastermind of “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,” in theaters this weekend, but he says his own scariest time is during broad daylight. Del Toro acknowledged in a recent interview that his nighttime dreams are actually “very boring.” Instead, the Oscar-winning producer, director and screenwriter said he has “an overactive imagination in the day” — a “horrible” condition because he’s always overreacting to something. “If my wife takes 15 minutes longer to come back from the supermarket, I’m already fantasizing with horror stories. You know — what happened? A crash? An accident? A plane landed on the car? I tend to get paranoid really fast,” he said. That could be the inspiration for the monster-meister’s dark films such as “Pan’s Labyrinth,” the “Hellboy” series, and now “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,” a film del Toro describes as

“We just retold the story to each other and the school boys and through the years I realized that a lot of the moments I liked about the movie we have made up; we had invented.”
— Guillermo del Toro

a classic gothic thriller. It stars 11-year-old Bailee Madison as Sally, who is sent to live with her father, played by Guy Pierce, and his girlfriend, played by Katie Holmes. In the house, Sally hears voices that turn out to be what del Toro describes as “little creatures that are very, very nasty,” that live in the cellars, in caves, under the house and, of course, are up to no good. Del Toro produced the film and cowrote the screenplay, which he says is very close to his heart and took more than 16 years to finally get into theaters. It’s based on a 1973 television movie of the same name, which del Toro says was the scariest movie he saw as a young boy. He says the story then took on a life of its own, noting that those were days

before people could re-watch movies on video. “So we just retold the story to each other and the school boys and through the years I realized that a lot of the moments I liked about the movie we have made up; we had invented,” he said. Del Toro originally planned to direct “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” but could not because at the time he was directing Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” (del Toro quit the production in May 2010 after two years of involvement, citing production delays). He acknowledges that under the direction of Troy Nixey, “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” looks very different from what he envisioned, but he says the best part of this experience was “to see the world you’ve dreamt of so long interpreted in a different way.”

Jeter and Kelly split up
NEW YORK — Derek Jeter is a free agent again. After three years together, the Yankees captain has broken up with Minka Kelly, the actress’ representative told the Associated Press. Jeter, in Baltimore for a series against the Orioles, would not comment. Kelly was a frequent visitor to Yankee Stadium while the two were dating.

Young actress brings old soul to del Toro film
By Lauri Neff
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Bailee Madison consoles an interviewer who confesses to being too much of a wimp to sit through her scary new film, ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark.” “You’re not a wimp,” the 11-year-old says. “You’re good,” and then earnestly promises to share a “movie night” with the reporter. Her film mates say the response is typical of Madison, an actress who shows composure and professionalism commensurate with her acting experience — she’s appeared in more than a dozen films and TV shows, despite her young age.

Madison says that co-star Katie Holmes was very protective of her during filming of the dark tale about a girl who discovers nasty creatures in her new house who Bailee Madison want to claim her as one of their own. “She made sure that I was alright and she really took care of me and I really appreciate that.” Guillermo Del Toro, who co-wrote and produced the gothic thriller opening Friday, recalled things differently. He said the crew was very concerned for the young actress when she had to

scream during a particularly tense scene, but as soon as they yelled “cut,” Madison turned to Holmes and asked her, “Are you okay? Is there anything I can do for you?” “It was Bailee worried about Katie,” de Toro said with a laugh. He joked that he’s not even sure Madison is a little girl. “I think she’s possessed. She’s about 70-years-old in her little body. She’s possessed by Madeleine Albright or something.” Madison attributes her mature attitude to her family, who keeps her “grounded.” She says she is now used to being called an “old soul” and considers it a “huge compliment” — at least now that she’s gotten her mom to explain what it means.

New ‘O Brother’set serves up more old-timey music
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — George Clooney isn’t the only one whose singing didn’t make the final cut of “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” and the film’s best-selling soundtrack, which helped turn old-timey

music into hit pop tunes again. Clooney’s stab at singing the film’s signature song still remains in the vaults, but an expanded version of the soundtrack — in stores Tuesday — packs 14 extra tracks, including 12 previously unreleased cuts from music producer T

Bone Burnett’s “O Brother” sessions. The two-CD set, which also includes the 19 tunes from the original soundtrack, helps celebrate the 10th anniversary of the “O Brother” triumph at the 2001 Grammys, where it was picked as album of the year.

DAILY JOURNAL SENIOR CORRESPONDENT

A WORLD OF PRIVILEGE IN BEVERLY HILLS. One hundred years ago, Beverly Hills, was a recently laid out, barren-hilled subdivision, which the developers had optimistically named after upscale Beverly Farms in Massachusetts, a favored summer vacation spot of then-President William Howard Taft. The year 1911 saw construction under way on two now-iconic Beverly Hill destinations, the Virginia Robinson Gardens and the Beverly Hills Hotel, which together make a perfect day’s outing for those looking for a taste of Southern California history, beauty and glamour. *** VIRGINIA ROBINSON GARDENS. Virginia Robinson Gardens was the residence of retail giants Virginia and Harry Robinson (of the Robinson department stores) and was the first luxury estate built in what is now the world’s most famous residential neighborhood. Mrs. Robinson was known as the first lady of Beverly Hills and her guests included both actual royalty such as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Hollywood royalty like Marlene Dietrich and Fred Astaire. She sipped champagne cocktails with Sophia Loren and challenged Charlie Chaplin to a spirited game of tennis. Her neighbors were Glenn Ford, Lillian Disney and Elvis Presley. Mrs. Robinson was renowned for her philanthropy and the Hollywood Bowl Patronesses Benefit was a favorite. Each year, after the opening of the Hollywood Bowl season, the orchestra would repeat its performance on her estate’s Great Lawn, to the delight of her guests. Virginia Robinson bequeathed her home to the County of Los Angeles, which, along with Friends

of Robinson Gardens, maintains the estate in the elegant and tranquil manner that is in keeping with the living traditions of the early 20th century. The beautiful 6-acre property, listed on the National Register of Historic Sites, contains dramatic display gardens, including the Australian King Palm Forest (the largest outside Australia), the Rose Garden and the Italian Terrace Garden. Timothy L. Lindsay, Superintendent of the Gardens, said, “The legendary Virginia Robinson Gardens, located in the heart of Beverly Hills, is representative of an early 20th century American garden, with its inspiration rooted in the architectural elements of 15th century Italy. People from around the world visit this 6.5 acre estate to tour its beautiful buildings and gardens, finding tranquility and insight into a more genteel, bygone era.” The Robinson estate is located at 1008 Elden Way. Both the gardens and the home are available for tour by appointment, Tuesday through Friday at 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. Walk-in visitors are not allowed. If you arrive by car, drive through the front gate on the right, following the narrow, winding driveway to a small parking lot. The tour includes a brief walk through the mansion, but is largely composed of viewing the historical garden paradise. For information visit www.robinsongardens.org, call (310) 5502065 or email visit@robinsongardens.org. Admission Fees: Adults $11, Students (with I.D.) $6, Seniors (62+) $6, and Children (512) $4.

The Great Lawn of the Virginia Robinson Gardens in Beverly Hills rolls down from the estate’s Pool Pavilion.
*** THE POLO LOUNGE. Sample the flavor of Beverly Hills at the elegant Polo Lounge, located inside the Beverly Hills Hotel at 9641 Sunset Blvd., a few blocks from the Virginia Robinson Gardens. Named for celebrities who would meet there after polo matches (there is a photograph of Will Rogers and Darryl F. Zanuck at polo behind the bar), the Polo Lounge has three dining areas done in its signature pink and green motif. Its wait staff look like young actors and the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. The breakfast menu choices include Lobster Benedict with a chive hollandaise sauce as well as nutella stuffed french toast made of brioche bread served with marinated strawberries and sweet vanilla cream. The lunch menu offers informal classics such as tuna nicoise salad, tomato soup with a cheese sandwich and fettuccine carbonara, along with heavier fare such as New York steak and grilled lamb chops. The Polo Lounge validation provides a discounted charge for valet parking. BEVERLY HILLS HOTEL HISTORY. In 1906, the owners of the new Beverly Hills subdivision needed a special attraction to set the city above all the other housing developments sprouting up around Southern California at the turn of the century. A grand hotel was envisioned and the owners of the then well-known Hollywood Hotel were persuaded to come the undeveloped area where they opened the Beverly Hills Hotel in 1912. The city of Beverly Hills grew up around the new hotel. Movies filmed at the hotel’s Polo Lounge include The Bad and the Beautiful (1952), Designing Woman (1957), The Way We Were (1973), American Gigolo (1980) and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998). *** AND REMEMBER: The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as foreign land.

‘Brighton Rock’a stylish,familiar noir
By Christy Lemire
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Graham Greene’s crime novel “Brighton Rock” previously was made into a 1947 film famously starring Richard Attenborough with a script Greene himself co-wrote. A new version of “Brighton Rock” moves the setting from the late ‘30s to 1964 as the Mods and Rockers were battling it out on Britain’s southeast shore. You half expect to hear songs from “Quadrophenia” pop up here and there but, alas, no such luck. This may sound like a jarring shift, but the feature directing debut from screenwriter Rowan Joffe (”28 Weeks Later,” “The American”) does maintain the dark tone and stylish visuals of its noir origins, with dramatic shadows and camera angles that nearly fetishize the genre. Oscar-nominated cinematographer John Mathieson’s work is rapturous to look at, but the film as a whole often feels like an exercise in style over substance, especially as it becomes clear just how many times we’ve seen these kinds of characters in this kind of story before. Still, Sam Riley and Andrea Riseborough are watchable in a pulpy sort of way as mismatched teenagers awkwardly thrown together during a bloody mob war. “I’m bad. You’re good. We’re made for each other,” Riley’s ambitious gangster Pinkie assures Riseborough’s innocent waitress Rose. And even though she buys the line, nothing is that simple. A pair of retaliatory killings has the bleak beach town on edge, and Rose had the misfortune of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and witnessing the

wrong thing, even though she doesn’t entirely know what she saw. When Pinkie enters the cafe where she serves customers in a quietly bungling manner, she’s simultaneously frightened and fascinated by his dangerous demeanor. Riley previously starred as doomed Joy Division lead singer Ian Curtis in “Control”; he’s got darkand-brooding down pat. But when he seduces Rose to keep her quiet, she’s giddy rather than repulsed. Helen Mirren co-stars as the restaurant owner who’s been around the block a few times and knows something about young men like Pinkie; she tries to warn Rose about him, but the foolish girl is too far gone. And her storyline is actually more compelling than that of Pinkie trying to rise to power during this volatile time; there’s more at stake for her. Through a rushed courtship and quickie civil union — which spells eternal damnation for the devout Rose — both of these people grow more frightened. But as Pinkie turns increasingly panicky and reckless, Rose becomes surer of herself in the new role she’s about to assume as a devoted mob moll. Riseborough rises to the occasion, transforming from a shy bunny rabbit of a girl into a defiant, loyal young woman. Besides the presence of Mirren, John Hurt helps class up the cast as a veteran bookie who helps her put the pieces of these killings together. They’re so good — and make it all look so easy — they make you want to see an entire film of just the two of them, drinking whiskey and flirting instead. “Brighton Rock,” an IFC Films release, is unrated but contains pervasive language, violence and smoking. Running time: 111 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four.

this project. There’s a definitive point of view. To me, the character wasn’t just about his look: the long hair, the beard, the Crocs. Those are external things. He’s just a good guy who’s into bio-dynamic farming.” After being released from prison for selling marijuana to a uniformed police officer, Ned becomes entangled in the lives of his three sisters: free-loving Natalie (Zooey Deschanel), career-focused Miranda (Elizabeth Banks) and perfection-seeking Liz (Emily Mortimer). Rudd has a younger sister, but their real-life relationship didn’t inspire him. “That was probably more of an influence on my decision to pursue acting as a career,” said Rudd. “I think I knew I wanted to do this in high school, but the seeds were probably planted at a much younger age. My sister was born two and a half years after me. It was the perfect age for me to not know what to do and to want to turn the attention back to me.” As a teenager with a penchant for public speaking growing up in Overland Park, an tent damage, they take him back because they realize what a positive influence he is in their lives. It makes no sense — there’s a gap of logic and emotion that’s hard to overcome. Still, the usually likable Rudd is totally committed to playing this annoying, goofy schlub: a Capraesque character in cargo shorts and shaggy facial hair. You don’t blame the sisters for ostracizing him — but then they’re all drawn in such an unlikable, two-dimensional way, you won’t want to be on their side, either. Director Peretz says they’re all meant to represent specific New York types, but they never feel like fully realized people. First, Ned stays with Mortimer’s Liz, the smug, hovering, ultra-P.C. Brooklyn mom; her kids are named River and Echo. She’s people view events from different perspectives. Lyu also has an interest in psychology and sociology. As an introspective teenager, he questions how humans develop self-identity and subsequently how they interact. Recognizing that he is still in a period of personal development, he enjoys thinking metacognitively, questioning his own actions. He hopes that through writing for this column, he is able to allow readers to revisit the idyllic Kansas City suburb, Rudd’s high school classmate Sean Tevis recalled he would do things like spontaneously commandeer grocery store speaker systems to announce fictitious sales or convince his fellow yell leaders to sneak into cheerleaders’ homes to invite them out. “It’s the kind of thing that a normal person wouldn’t do,” said Tevis. “Paul always had no fear of authority. I think he’s just always done what he wants because it pleases him, which I guess has led him to pursue things that most people would say, ‘Oh, I could never do that.’ I don’t think that particular thought has ever really entered his head.” Rudd’s unflappable nature and boyish charm led him from the land of theater, commercials and television parts in Los Angeles to his breakout brotherly role as the snarky stepbrother in 1995’s “Clueless.” He later relocated to New York and went on to work regularly with such playwrights and filmmakers as David Wain, Neil LaBute, Judd Apatow and Peretz. Rudd, who still lives in New York with his married to a skeevy and disdainful documentary filmmaker played by a surprisingly unfunny Steve Coogan. They are obsessed with getting their son into the right private school. When he wears out his welcome there, he moves in with Banks’ Miranda, an impatient and ambitious writer for Vanity Fair (where Peretz the screenwriter is a contributing editor in real life). She’ll do whatever she must to get good play for her piece on a British royal, even if it means using Ned to obtain secondhand information. She also bosses around her neighbor (Adam Scott, who has some nice, easygoing banter with Rudd); he has a crush on her for reasons that are difficult to comprehend. (Again, it’s really hard to make Elizabeth Banks unlikable; “Our Idiot Brother” has teenage mind. Weiner is a junior at Crystal Springs Uplands School where she has been involved with student journalism since her freshman year writing for the school’s new magazine, Vantage, and working on the editing staff for her school’s literary magazine, Crystal Vision.

wife and two children, said that despite his agent’s advice, he tends “not to differentiate between dramas or comedies, lead roles or supporting ones.” He doesn’t mind if a movie is similar to one he’s already done. He’s drawn to films as a whole, not just the characters he portrays. Mostly, he just wants to have fun. Rudd is currently in the middle of filming an untitled follow-up to Apatow’s “Knocked Up” in Los Angeles. It focuses on the bickering sister and brother-in-law of Katherine Heigl’s character that he and Leslie Mann played in the 2007 romantic comedy. It’s the first time Rudd, who studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, has reprised a film role. “It’s been surreal,” said Rudd, a stranger to sequels except for his first big part: a “Halloween” installment. “The dynamic that Leslie and I have is pretty great. There’s already a familiarity with working with each other. It’s been fun to play that part again. I really liked doing ‘Knocked Up,’ so to play that part again but to do more stuff is great.” achieved that dubious feat.) Finally he joins Deschanel’s Natalie, a bisexual, bohemian artsy type who lives in an already crowded loft. She’s dating a lawyer named Cindy (Rashida Jones), poses nude for painters and tries out awkward new material at poorly attended open mike nights. Unlike the other sisters, she’s not uptight; instead, she’s selfish and flighty to a fault. Whether Ned tears them all apart, brings them back together or finally finds a permanent home, it’s hard to care, because the film doesn’t seem to care, either. “Our Idiot Brother,” a Weinstein Co. release, is rated R for sexual content including nudity, and for language throughout. Running time: 90 minutes. One and a half stars out of four. and serves as co-president of her grade. We are all excited for this opportunity and look forward to a great year.

The affable 42-year-old actor grew his hair and beard out last summer to portray Ned, an easygoing organic farmer whose lack of ambition and independence continually frustrate his family. Rudd developed the earnest character with friend-neighbordirector Jesse Peretz. (The pair first worked together on the 2002 improvisational comedy “The Chateau.”) The indie dramedy, which was snapped up by The Weinstein Co. at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, is distinctly different from any of the other movies listed on Rudd’s seemingly never-ending resume. It’s not as silly as “Role Models” or “Dinner for Schmucks” nor is it as serious as “The Cider House Rules” or “The Shape of Things.” “It’s just like life,” Rudd recently said over breakfast. “It’s not unrealistic or a cliche.

though he always means well. Director Jesse Peretz, working from a script written by his sister, Evgenia Peretz, and her husband, David Schisgall, follows him as he bumbles his way from one situation to the next with no great momentum or sense of character evolution.

efitted Hillborough schools, but has expanded to partner with organizations helping children in the greater area. Along with the Hillborough Schools Foundation, proceeds also go to Autism Speaks and the 49ers Foundation, which helps underserved youth stay in school. Fisher said the event is 100 percent volunteer. Attendees can also enjoy gourmet food, wine, beer and live music while they take in the cars. The event has some unique vehicles, including the National Automobile Museum’s bright orange Airomobile, a 1930s attempt at an aerodynamic design, Fisher said. Each year there is a featured European make and an American make. This year’s ‘marques’ are Bugattis and Packards. “Bugattis are a rare and prestigious marque,” said Fisher. “They are not often shown in groups. We took that as a challenge.” Concours will showcase about a dozen Bugattis. Packards, on the other hand, were chosen for their familiarity. “Everyone will say someone in their family had a Packard at one time,” said Fisher. “They are iconic pre- and postwar cars.” Hal Schuette, assistant director of the Northern California Packard Club, will bring his 1949 Packard to the concours. “These things are love affairs,” said Schuette, gazing at his shiny black vintage vehicle. Schuette’s Packard is completely original except for the paint. The car is a Golden Anniversary Packard which means it was originally painted gold. While the car is highly original, it is not in a condition that would be eligible for competition, he said. It has not undergone any detailed

restoration, like many of the immaculate vehicles that will be judged on Sunday. “It’s a driver,” he said, adding that Packards are extremely reliable. He pointed to a minor tear in the front passenger seat cushion and explained that a film crew had probably caused the damage. In December, he was paid to loan the car to a film shooting in San Francisco of an upcoming “On the Road” Jack Kerouac movie. Schuette said that while the incredible detail of the cars will be appreciated by car enthusiasts, he is putting together a display that he thinks everyone can appreciate; a lineup of six colorful Packards from different eras, creating a visual display of the evolution of Packard design. Schuette is passionate about keeping the legacy of cars alive. He said many of the members of the Packard Club are getting old and don’t even bring their Packards to meetings anymore. But the club continues to have events each month to educate people on the value of the automobile. The club is planning to hold a luncheon with renowned car collector Jack Passey. Schuette hopes that the event this weekend will help perpetuate a love and appreciation for automobiles into younger generations. Schuette’s own 10-year-old grandson Daniel is already a car lover and will be joining him at concours. Since the 1956 concours, the quality of the event and support from the community has not changed much, said Schuette. “It’s really about quality rather than quantity,” he said, adding that the expected attendance is 2,000 or 3,000, unlike the Pebble Beach Concours, which hosted 15,000 visitors. Sunday’s event will be held on the 18th fairway of the Crystal Springs Golf Course, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are $25. Children 12 and under are free. PG&E’s shoddy record keeping had put people at risk in the past, and should not be passed on to consumers since the company’s profits continued to rise. “PG&E has neglected safety and maintenance for way too long,” said Mark Toney, executive director The Utility Reform Network, based in San Francisco. “Now they have to play catch-up, and it should not be at customers’ expense.” U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, at whose district includes San Bruno, gave cautious praise to PG&E’s plan. “It likely exceeds what the federal government is going to be requiring,” Speier said. “But we have to make sure that ratepayer is paying their fair share and only their fair share.”

highly populated areas. Because PG&E’s transmission line in San Bruno lacked remotely operated or automatic shut-off valves, the gas kept flowing and fueled the fire for nearly an hour and a half after the pipe burst. PG&E’s new proposal includes plans to install automated valves in highly populated regions and in areas where pipelines cross active seismic faults so gas could be shut off in the event of a pipeline rupture. Consumer advocates said the cost of

the extra digits to be so perfect. Anyone who glanced quickly at his hands would be hardpressed to notice anything different unless they paused and started counting. Hernandez said that as a boy he was visited by a prominent Cuban orthopedist who is also one of Fidel Castro’s doctors, and he declared that in all his years of travel he had never seen such a case of well-formed polydactyly. “He was very impressed when he saw my fingers,” said Hernandez, who is the only one in his family to be born with extra digits. In a part of the world where people’s physical traits are often the basis for nicknames — even unflattering ones like “fatty” or “shorty” — “veinticuatro” (“twenty-four” in English) is not an insult but rather a term of endearment, and Hernandez, now 37, said his uniqueness has made him a popular guy. He has a 10-year-old son with a woman who for the volunteers. Broken into groups, volunteers helped in a variety of capacities. Rory Otto, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group spokesperson, was assigned to the mulch pile. Quite tall herself, Otto explained the pile was nearly double her height when the day started. Around lunch, the pile was notably smaller and shorter than Otto. “I feel like I’m making a difference,” she said. Numerous volunteers came from the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group to support the partnership. It had recently created the Let’s Play initiative which included a $15 million threeyear commitment to work with KaBOOM! to build or fix up 2,000 playgrounds by the end of 2013. Overall, the effort will provide play space for an estimated 5 million children across North America. Orange Memorial’s play space will serve more than 1,850 children locally. Children even had a say in the design. Rothaus said prior to the presentation they weren’t even sure if Speedy’s owner would want him but that Mariucci and the deputies wanted to try. The Daily Journal is not identifying the lizard’s owner as he is an alleged crime victim. Bearded lizards are native to Australia and are known as gentle animals that make good pets. Their name comes from spines on their throats that typically lay flat but can stand up when the dragon feels threatened. Speedy was rushed to the veterinarian after being stabbed between the shoulder blade, received three stitches and hung on a few days but ultimately died from his injury. The alleged stabber, Shawna Kim Apour,

Cuban man proud of his four extra fingers,toes
By Fernando Gonzalez
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BARACOA, Cuba — They call him “Twenty-Four.” Yoandri Hernandez Garrido’s nickname comes from the six perfectly formed fingers on each of his hands and the six impeccable toes on each foot. Hernandez is proud of his extra digits and calls them a blessing, saying they set him apart and enable him to make a living by scrambling up palm trees to cut coconuts and posing for photographs in this eastern Cuban city popular with tourists. One traveler paid $10 for a picture with him, Hernandez said, a bonanza in a country with an average salary of just $20 a month. “It’s thanks to my 24 digits that I’m able to make a living, because I have no fixed job,” Hernandez said. Known as polydactyly, Hernandez’s condition is relatively common, but it’s rare for

Yoandri Hernandez Garrido,of ‘Twenty-Four,’ was born with 12 fingers and 12 toes.
now lives in Havana, and his current girlfriend is expecting his second child. “Since I was young, I understood that it Students from a nearby elementary school and the Boys and Girls Club came together in July for a Design Day event. Children had the chance to draw and present plans for their dream park. Then, adults worked together to create a realistic design inspired by the children’s work, Ranals said. KaBOOM! Project Manager Katie Morgan explained the organization looks to work with communities that need new play areas but also who have volunteers willing to help. This project is special because it includes an imagination playground — a group of large blue building blocks in a variety of sizes that can be taken to local schools or club houses allowing children to create whatever they’d like, she said. For all the volunteers, the day was a wonderful change of pace from the traditional work day. Councilman Pedro Gonzalez was part of the group mixing concrete, which wasn’t how he expected to help. meanwhile remains jailed awaiting a mental evaluation to determine if she can stand trial on several charges related to the evening Speedy was injured and a different incident days later when she was found wandering on the train tracks. Her attorney has indicated she may have a developmental disability. The situation began Aug. 12, according to prosecutors, when Apour reportedly rose from watching television with her boyfriend at his Crestview Drive home and went inside his bedroom with a knife. He reported hearing his lizard enclosure being opened and after Apour emerged finding Speedy stabbed. Apour allegedly then went outside to vandalize vehicles belonging to his brother and neighbors. When police found her walking

was a privilege to have 24 digits. Nobody has ever discriminated against me for that,” he said. “On the contrary, people admire me and I am very proud. I have a million friends, I live well.” Nevertheless, it occasionally caused confusion growing up. “One day when I was in primary school, a teacher asked me how much was five plus five?” Hernandez recalled. “I was very young, kind of shy, and I didn’t say anything. She told me to count how many fingers I had, so I answered, “12!” “The teacher was a little upset, but it was the truth,” he said. Hernandez said he hopes he can be an example to children with polydactyly that there’s nothing wrong with them. “I think it’s what God commanded,” he said. “They shouldn’t feel bad about anything, because I think it’s one of the greatest blessings and they’ll be happy in life.” “It’s hard work but it’s good to do something for the children,” he said. The rest of the park will take some time to finish. While this portion was funded through the group partnership, the city will invest about $300,000 to complete the rest, said Ranals. Funds for the project were collected from park-in-lieu fees which developers give the city when they build. Once completed, the park will have a special area for the younger children and serve kids up to 12 years old. For more information about KaBOOM! visit www.kaboom.org.

since opening, which is unique. She believes the extra care is due to the community investing time through volunteer work to build it. Friday’s effort is the first in a larger plan to renovate the 14-year-old park which had outlived its life. Two other sections will be finished around the end of the year. One landscape architect created the vision so the portions will work well together, Ranals said. “It’s long overdue,” said Vice Mayor Rich Garbarino, who was one of three councilmembers digging in to help Friday. Volunteers came from a variety of places from city employees and residents to corporate groups and those who simply heard through word of mouth. One volunteer kept the motivation high by playing music

bureau responded to the initial call and felt bad he lost his longtime companion. Sgt. Tony Mariucci and a handful of deputies bought the animal and prior to the surprise presentation kept him in a plastic tank outfitted with a swimming pool and a little something else, said Capt. Greg Rothaus — a Sheriff’s star. Deputies presented the creature Friday afternoon in the San Carlos patrol bureau inside City Hall.

with the knife, she allegedly brandished it at them and was Tasered after refusing to drop the weapon. Apour posted $25,000 bail and was released from jail. The following Tuesday she was back in custody after deputies responded to a call by her mother saying she was walking on the railroad tracks near the San Carlos train station. Apour was again arrested after reportedly grabbing for the deputy’s gun and Taser. She is currently being held on $200,000 bail.
