Jail cuts visiting hours

Budget and staffing issues behind new schedule
By Michelle Durand

The Sheriffs Ofce is cutting one day of public visiting hours at the mens jail as ofcials wrestle with budget and stafng cuts and prepare for an inux of state prisoners next month. With six legal ofce specialists employed at Maguire Correctional Facility chopped,

Greg Munks

Sheriff Greg Munks said he had to trim Wednesday visiting hours and prioritize mandatory services like processing booking, bail and court scheduling. Im sensitive to visiting and dont take the cuts lightly, but somethings got to give, Munks said. As

we lose these positions we have to stop doing certain things. State law mandates inmates are allowed two visits per week and Munks said the jails sixday schedule, before the cuts announced yesterday, have always allowed for more. Maguire, the mens jail on Bradford Street in Redwood City, accommodates more than 300 visitors each day, said spokesman Tom Merson.

Merson said the specialists played a critical role in managing the visitors who must sign in an hour prior, provide identication and await word that the inmate accepts the request. Attorneys will continue having access to clients seven days a week but family, friends and friends will be left to visit 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday through Saturday.

Caltrain names new operator


Amtrak will no longer run Caltrain as the Peninsula Joint Powers Board named TransitAmerica Services the rail services new operator yesterday. Amtrak has operated the system since 1992, when the board assumed responsibility for the 148-year-old commuter line. Caltrain staff sided with TransitAmericas bid based on its management; operations and maintenance plan; cost; and the qualications and experience of the rm. The rst full year of the ve-year contract is for $59.5 million. TransitAmericas bid was not the lowest, however. A company named Veolia proposed to operate the line for $374.5 million over a ve-year period, about $25 million less than TransitAmericas bid. Amtraks bid with partner Bombardier came in at $421 million for the ve-year contract. The staff recommendation to choose TransitAmerica was based on a competitive process that extended more than 15 months and included evaluation of ve proposals from rail management rms.

Nineteen hours into an all-night jam session for charity, musician Kevin North was not sure he could play his guitar for another ve hours as he pledged to raise money for the American Cancer Society last year. Feeling loopy with tired eyes, North then saw his buddy Auri Nagger walk into Sharis Restaurant in San Bruno

Norths goal was to raise about $1,000 for the charity but he ended up raising about $6,000. North held the event last year to honor his father, who died from pancreatic cancer Sept. 2, 2009 at the age of 60. It was his father who gave him the love of

Strange but True

Hundreds of panties turn up along Ohio road
LANCASTER, Ohio Authorities in central Ohio are trying to solve a panties puzzle: why hundreds of pairs of mostly womens underwear were dumped along the side of a road. Fairfield County Deputy Gary Hummel said Thursday the undergarments were found in trees and on hillsides in several spots this week on a road in Berne Township, about 30 miles southeast of Columbus. He says some of the panties were still folded the way theyd come in packaging, while others appeared to have been worn. There were nearly 1,700 pairs in all, in a mix of colors and patterns. Hummel says when collected, they filled 10 large trash bags. He says investigators are baffled as to where the panties came from. restroom since the 1970s. Boston officials announced Wednesday that Mayor Thomas Menino signed a 15-year lease with the Orlando, Fla.-based Earl of Sandwich chain for a takeout operation at the site. Earl of Sandwich will pay $50,000 annually. It will renovate the interior of the mausoleum-like structure for use as a kitchen, with storage and prep areas. The goal is to open the shop as early as next spring. The Boston Common was set aside as public land in 1640. The restroom is called the Pink Palace because of the pinkish hue of its masonry. munity by doing something extreme, Mulnix said. Last year at this race I had to quit at 25 miles into the race due to overheating. The chances of me finishing this year were even less, but I like a challenge. Mulnix, 32, still is recovering from a car wreck in February. A major fracture on the right side of his jaw didnt heal, and a plate holding the jaw together broke. Doctors wired his jaw 10 days before the race. Race director Chris Nicholas said last Saturdays race had more than 500 runners from 29 states and Canada. The wired jaw certainly posed a lot of challenges for Brandon, Nicholas said. When you are out running a race, anything above a marathon, youve got to make sure you are eating substance. Mulnix said dozens of people had pledged to give food to food pantries for his effort. We raised one food item for every mile so more than 3,000 non-perishable food items will be donated to communities across Michigan and as far away as Texas. I couldnt let people go hungry just because I was hurting, he said. He didnt even take the rest of the weekend off: Mulnix ran a 5K Sunday in Grand Rapids.

PG&E is wanting to include all of these folks. Pitre argued that the mediation process would likely be condential, depriving the victims of making their settlements public or even being able to talk about the details of their individual settlements with their neighbors. We want a public trial, Pitre said. We do not want protracted litigation and condential settlements. Judge Dylina said that the court would prefer to see the claimants and PG&E engage in a mediation process, but sensed resistance from the plaintiffs attorneys. Id like to get everyone into the mediation process, Dylina said. I can beg, I can grovel, I can plead, but I cant order it. Attorneys for both sides indicated they would le legal briefs outlining their preferred trial structure before the Sept. 22 case management conference. Dylina said he would review the briefs and announce a trial structure on Sept. 22. I think we can craft this in a way that meets everyones needs, he said.

A San Mateo County Superior Court judge Thursday decided to postpone a decision on how a lawsuit led by victims of the pipeline explosion in San Bruno should proceed against PG&E. The lawsuit involves 92 cases and 323 plaintiffs who are suing PG&E for the Sept. 9, 2010 explosion on one of its natural gas transmission lines in the Crestmoor Canyon neighborhood, a disaster that killed eight people, injured dozens more and ravaged an entire neighborhood. After hearing arguments from attorneys for PG&E and those representing the plaintiffs, Judge Steven Dylina said he would determine what trial structure would best suit the unique aspects of the case and set a trial date at a case management conference on Sept. 22. Burlingame lawyer Frank Pitre, who represented attorneys for all of the plaintiffs at Thursdays proceedings, argued for a trial structure that would address liability and damages collectively by presenting bellwether cases select cases that best represent the entire groups claims. A bellwether trial would divide the claims

Charges upheld in machete assault


A man accused of attacking his South San Francisco neighbor with a machete after being asked to leave a barbecue will stand trial on attempted murder and weapons charges. Pedro Ramirez Garcia, 32, is also charged with assault with a deadly weapon, making threats and resisting arrest. He has pleaded not guilty but was held to answer on all counts after a preliminary hearing of the evidence. He now returns to court Sept. 15 to enter a Superior Court plea and set a trial date. South San Francisco police arrested Garcia June 26 after being summoned by other partygoers to the home in the 400 block of Baden Avenue. Garcia, who is a friend of the host, was

reportedly asked to leave the gathering after making inappropriate comments to female guests and authorities say he lifted his shirt to show rie ammunition in his waistband. He then threatened to shoot the host before leaving the party, going to his home next Pedro Garcia door and returning to the barbecue with the machete, according to police. Garcia allegedly yelled that he was going to kill the victim while swinging the machete. The victim then turned to defend himself just as Garcia swung the machete at the victims head,

according to police. The victim suffered cuts on his hands as he struggled to disarm Garcia. During the struggle, Garcia also allegedly bit the victim on the back, according to police. While partygoers tried to intervene, Garcia ed the scene into the arms of awaiting police ofcers.

Garcia has a lengthy criminal record dating back to 2004 and at the time of arrest had an outstanding warrant in this county for narcotics possession. He is being held on $500,000 bail. oxides that combine with oxygen in the presence of heat and sunlight to form ground-level ozone, ofcials said.

Paulo said the company has now installed both the automatic and remotely controlled valves at their Healy station in San Bruno and plan to continue installing either or both of the valves throughout their pipeline system. The remotely controlled valve can be shut off from the companys headquarters in San Francisco while the automatic valve shuts itself off when it detects a drop in pressure, Paulo said. We installed both the automatic and remote valves because of the proximity to the San Andreas fault, she said.


Pipeline safety bills head to gov.

Pair plead not guilty in iPhone prototype theft


SACRAMENTO Two bills written in response to a deadly natural gas pipeline explosion that tore through San Bruno passed the Legislature Thursday. The measures by Sen. Ellen Corbett of San Leandro and Sen. Leland Yee of San Francisco/San Mateo address emergency response and pipeline safety in the wake of the gas explosion that killed eight and destroyed 55 homes in San Bruno last year. An investigation wrapped up by the National Safety Transportation Board this week concluded that the immediate causes of the disaster were the insufcient welds and aging pipes owned by one of the largest gas companies in the nation, Pacic Gas & Electric. The panel said the companys history of spotty pipeline inspection contributed to the accident, a problem that was apparently missed by the California Public Utilities Commission. The board also blamed the lax state and federal regula-

PG&E spokeswoman Lynsey Paulo said the company supported Corbetts legislation and has since taken a number of steps to improve their organization with local re and police. Yees measure, SB216, requires public utilities to install automatic and remotely controlled shut-off valves on pipelines that cross active earthquake faults or heavily populated areas. The re, fed by gas from the ruptured pipeline, burned for 95 minutes before

Two men charged in the theft and sale of an iPhone 4 prototype left in a Redwood City bar pleaded not guilty through their attorneys yesterday and will stand trial in November. Brian Hogan, 22, and Sage Wallower, 28, are charged with a misdemeanor count of misappropriation of lost property. Wallower is also charged with possessing stolen property. Because the charges are misdemeanors, neither need appear in court personally to enter not guilty pleas. They were scheduled for a pretrial conference Oct. 11 followed by jury trial Brian Hogan Nov. 28. A conviction on any of the misdemeanors could carry up to a year in jail. Hogan is accused of picking up the phone March 25, 2010 after an Apple engineer left it at Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City. Wallower allegedly took the phone from Hogan to negotiate a deal with tech sites. In mid-August, District Attorney Steve Sage Wallower Wagstaffe announced his office would prosecute Hogan and Wallower but not the Gizmdo editor who paid $5,000 for the top-secret gadget later reviewed on the blog. The office contended a protracted legal battle over the sites First Amendment rights was not worth the time and expense. After Gizmodo purchased the phone, it was disassembled and detailed online. Apple CEO Steve Jobs requested Gizmodo return the phone and also contact law enforcement, setting off the investigation. Unlike theft, the misappropriation charge reflects that Hogan picked up lost property and Wallowers possession charge is because he knew at that point the iPhone was stolen, Pitt said. The men are free from custody on their own recognizance.

Legislation that protects the rights of drivers by regulating redlight cameras was approved by the Legislature on a bi-partisan vote, and now heads to Gov. Jerry Brown for approval. Senate Bill 29, by state Sen. Joe Simitian, DPalo Alto, would establish statewide standards for the installation and operation of traffic enforcement cameras, and make it easier to challenge unjustified tickets. The legislation is a reintroduction of a bill Simitian authored last year that originated in his annual There Oughta Be a Law contest. San Jose resident Vera Gil suggested the legislation after receiving multiple tickets from red-light cameras for a car in Southern California she does not own and has never driven. Senate Bill 36, introduced by state Simitian enables counties that provide childrens health insurance to tap additional federal funds at no cost to the state. The bill now goes to the governor for his signature. By changing income-based eligibility limits in state law, Senate Bill 36 would enable County Health Initiatives in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, and in San Francisco, to cover more uninsured children. Senate Bill 36 is sponsored by the County of San Mateo, whose Healthy Kids program currently provides health insurance to nearly 5,200 children who would otherwise lack insurance. On a 45-26 vote, the state Assembly approved legislation that would allow citizens to register to vote via the Internet. Several other states already offer online registration, yet California has lagged behind awaiting implementation of the statewide online database system known as VoteCal, which has been delayed until at least 2015 and probably later, according to the office of state Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco/San Mateo, who authored the legislation. Under SB 397, citizens would input their voter information online and the county elections office would use the voters signature from the Department of Motor Vehicles to verify authenticity. That signature could be matched against the voters signature at the polling place. Currently, signatures at the polling place are only compared to the paper registration signature, which potentially allows for greater occurrences of fraud, according to Yees office.

UC Berkeley prof.joins state Supreme Court Trio arrested for Half

By Don Thompson

SACRAMENTO Gov. Jerry Brown swore in University of California, Berkeley, law professor Goodwin Liu to the California Supreme Court on Thursday, just three months after Liu withdrew from consideration for a seat on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Liu, whose parents came to the U.S. from Taiwan, replaces the courts only Latino, Carlos Moreno, who retired in February. Latinos make up the states largest racial minority. With Lius appointment, four of the states seven justices are of full or partial Asian descent, while three are white. Brown said that shows the progress California has made since the days of anti-Asian and Chinese laws and attempts to drive out Native Americans and blacks in the 19th century. That is a real milestone, and maybe our forebears, wherever they are, will turn over in their respective graves but enjoy the progress that weve made, Brown said. He praised Liu as having the kind of character and temperament that brings people together, a trait Brown said is sorely needed in a time of divided government. Liu will quickly consider a very divisive issue, when the justices hear arguments Tuesday over whether nancial contributors to a measure that banned

Liu thanked supporters who stood by him when I needed it most, an apparent reference to the battle when Republican U.S. senators blocked his appointment to the federal bench over his criticism of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito in 2006. President Barack Obama had nominated Liu to the federal appeals court last year. Brown, a Democrat, nominated Liu to the states high court in July. Liu recalled moving to Sacramento from his native Georgia in 1977 at age 6, and touring the state Capitol when Brown, age 73, was serving his rst two terms as governor. I never imagined our paths would cross quite like this, Liu, 40, told Brown. Thank you for the opportunity of a lifetime.

Three suspects in a gang-related shooting in Half Moon Bay Aug. 14 were arrested early yesterday morning, according to the San Mateo County Sheriffs Ofce. On the day of the incident, people in the area reported hearing ve or six gunshots, and arriving deputies found Half Moon Bay resident Jose Monroy, 29, bleeding from a gunshot wound to his foot on the 200 block of Grove Street. A second victim showed up at Seton Medical Center Coastside a few days later with a gunshot wound, according to the Sheriffs Ofce. Yesterday, deputies with the Sheriffs Ofce conducted a search warrant on the 400 block of Metzgar Street in Half Moon Bay and arrested Christian Serrano DeLeon, 21, who is believed to be the primary suspect in the case. DeLeon was booked into the San Mateo County jail and charged with attempted murder with a criminal street gang enhancement. Probation searches at other residences lead to the arrest of two other suspects: Marco Antonio Barajas, 18, was located at a residence on the 400 Block of Willow Street, Half Moon Bay. He was taken into custody and charged with attempted murder with a criminal street gang enhancement. The third suspect, a 17-year-old Hispanic boy out of Moss Beach was also taken into custody. Deputies located him at a residence in the 100 block of Corona Street. He has been booked at the San Mateo County Youth Services Center on charges of attempted murder with a criminal street gang enhancement. Investigators believe the shooting was gang-related and may have stemmed from a dispute between the Norteo and Sureo street gangs.

Amendments made to SB161 by Republican Sen. Bob Huff of Diamond Bar passed the Senate 35-4 Thursday, sending the bill to the governor. Under the legislation, school districts can train staff how to use the anti-seizure gel Diastat, which has to be administered rectally within ve minutes of an epileptic seizure to prevent brain damage. Opponents say the medication, which is released through a syringe, can be dangerous to the student and should be given only by a caregiver familiar with a childs seizure patterns.

Dems propose reforms of business regulations

SACRAMENTO Democratic lawmakers and business leaders announced Thursday a package of bills designed to make Californias regulatory environment friendlier to businesses. Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg and Assembly Speaker John Perez announced an agreement with business leaders on two bills they hope to pass next week before the end of this years legislative session. Job growth has been at the forefront for state leaders as California continues to struggle with a 12 percent unemployment rate, the second highest in the nation after Nevada. We are here ... to put an end to the drumbeat that California is not friendly to business, said Steinberg, a Democrat from Sacramento. The main bill would require state agencies to assess the economic impact of regulations before they are adopted. SB617 by Sen. Ron Calderon, D-Monterey Park, and Sen. Fran Pavley, D-Agoura Hills, would require state agencies to evaluate new regulations if they have an estimated $50 million economic impact or more on businesses. The agencies would have to consider the least burdensome and cost-effective method of implementing those regulations. A second bill would establish the Governors Ofce of Business and Economic Development to develop an economic strategy and market California as a good place to do business. AB29 by Perez, a Los Angeles Democrat, also would create a business investment program to assist people who want

First and foremost,the private sector economic impact of a regulation will be brought to the forefront....We will have protocols to make sure they are done right. We will have a review to make sure that analysis is done correctly.

Bill would ban pay-to-play in schools

SACRAMENTO The state Senate has voted to prohibit K-12 schools from charging fees for certain classes, sports and clubs. Democratic Sen. Alan Lowenthal of Long Beach says free schools are and should remain at the heart of our democracy. He says the bill does not prohibit strictly voluntary fees for students books, lab equipment and art supplies. It does prohibit schools from making such payments a prerequisite for joining teams or clubs. AB165 by Democratic Assemblyman Ricardo Lara of Bell Gardens cleared the Senate on a 23-15 vote Thursday. It returns to the Assembly for a nal vote on Senate amendments.

to invest or expand in the state. The bills are supported by the California Chamber of Commerce and the California Manufacturers and Technology Association, which called the package a good rst step to reducing business costs. California is in a very deep hole right now, said Jack Stewart, president of the manufacturers group. We have 12 percent unemployment. Were not seeing new investment. There are a lot of other things that need to happen to reduce costs in California to bring California in line with other states and nations. Businesses are most concerned with the uncertainty of doing business in California and the package brings some certainty to the regulatory process, said Allan Zaremberg, president and chief executive of the California Chamber of Commerce. First and foremost, the private sector economic impact of a regulation will be brought to the forefront, Zaremberg said. We will have protocols to make sure they are done right. We will have a review to make sure that analysis is done correctly. While Senate Republicans applauded Democrats for tackling the issue, other GOP lawmakers said the proposals do not go far enough. Democrats have largely rejected bills that GOP members have long sought, such as

exible work weeks so employers can pay less overtime. Other GOP bills sought to reduce taxes for businesses and curb lawsuits that could be led against them. It is nice to see our friends in the majority party nally embrace a watered-down version of reform that Republicans have been advocating for years, Assembly Republican Leader Connie Conway said in a statement. Ironically, the majority party blocked these types of common-sense reforms every time Republicans have proposed them in the past. Gov. Jerry Brown, who has worked with Perez on AB29, looks forward to signing the bill into law as soon as it passes the Legislature, said spokesman Gil Duran. He said the governor will evaluate SB617 once it reaches his desk. Democrats couldnt ignore the need for a smarter, responsive government amid Californias scal problems, Steinberg said. Although the governor signed a rare on-time budget in late June, the spending plan includes a contingency plan to cut schools and community colleges deeper if rosy revenue projections dont materialize. This is not a partisan issue, he said. In the nal days of session, lawmakers must also contend with companies like Waste Connections Inc., a waste management company based in Folsom, Calif.

Dems want Obama to stop negotiating

By Jim Kuhenhenn

WASHINGTON The tiff over the timing of President Barack Obamas jobs speech to Congress offers little hope that Republicans and the White House will now nd common ground on how to reduce the nations painfully high unemployment. In fact, some Democrats say its time Obama stopped trying so hard to negotiate. On matters large and small, Obama has yielded to House Speaker John Boehner in a string of concessions that have unnerved Democrats and emboldened Republicans. A chorus of Democratic voices is now demanding that the president abandon his attempts at being a compromiser and instead lay out an ideological vision that distinguishes him from Republicans and becomes a template for his re-election. Obama had asked Congress to convene a joint session next Wednesday so he could announce his jobs agenda. Boehner objected, telling the president it would be better if he came the next night. Republicans were irritated that Obama wanted to speak at the same time Republican presidential candidates would be debating in California and sharing TV time with him. In the end, Obama accepted Boehners invitation to speak at 7 p.m. EDT next Thursday, early enough to avoid yet another conict with the opening game of the National Football League season. Obama must create a clear contrast between what he wants and what the Republicans want, Simon Rosenberg, president of the liberalleaning think tank NDN, wrote this week. If the president is to win the election next year, he will have to rst win the economic debate with the Republicans, something, to date, he has not done. Democratic strategist James Carville was even sharper, decrying the spectacle of the president being forced to change the day of his address to a joint session of Congress after Boehner took issue with Obamas initial request.

The last thing that the White House needed was to appear to cave in to the speaker, and thats what happened, he said Thursday on ABC. The pointed advice comes as Democrats are becoming increasingly anxious that joblessness and a weak economy are defining Obamas presidency and imperiling his reelection. His attempts to compromise with Republicans, they argue, have resulted in policies that have hurt him and the economy. The critique goes to the heart of what Obama advisers say is the presidents inclination to propose policies that have a chance of being accomplished. It also challenges the White House strategy of portraying the president as a sensible and pragmatic leader who is as frustrated with the ways of Washington as the public. White House spokesman Jay Carney reiterated on Thursday that the president intends to offer proposals that are reasonable and ... should receive bipartisan support. That strategy, these Democrats say, has not helped the president set a course for the econREUTERS omy. Barack Obama during his speech at the 93rd annual American Legion National Convention. Last December, Obama won a temporary payroll tax cut for workers, but he had to give up, at least until the end of 2012, on his insistence that Bush-era tax cuts should no longer apply to the wealthy. Earlier this year he avoided a government shutdown by agreeing to Republican demands for budget cuts. And this summer he won an increase in the nations debt ceiling but had to accede to more than a $1 trillion in spending reductions, with more to come. As the economy slows, fostering growth and rejecting austerity becomes an even greater imperative now, Rosenberg said in an interview. His speech must reect that. The contretemps over the date of Obamas speech added to the Democrats dismay. Some, like Carville, argued that the White House erred by seeking to schedule the address next Wednesday, at the same time as a Republican presidential debate. I do think this is a really big debate, and I think the White House was out of bounds, Carville said.

As economy cools: $1.3 trillion deficit projected

By Andrew Taylor

WASHINGTON The White House on Thursday predicted that unemployment will remain at 9 percent next year, a gloomy scenario for President Barack Obamas re-election campaign. The bleak figures from the Office of Management and Budget, which also projected overall growth this year at just 1.7 percent, serve as further conrmation of a sputtering economy while dramatizing the challenge Obama will face in making his case for reelection. The 1.7 percent growth rate is a full percentage point less than the administration predicted at the beginning of the year. The economy promises to be the leadingedge issue of the 2012 White House sweepstakes, and Obama already is facing a host of Republican rivals challenging his nancial policies. No president in modern times has won re-election with unemployment as high as 9 percent, and Obamas poll numbers have suffered in recent weeks amid a steady drumbeat of bad economic news. On the decit, the White House report also projects red ink totaling $1.3 trillion for the budget year coming to a close on Sept. 30. Thats slightly higher than last years decit but more than $300 billion less than the record sum that the White House predicted in February. Tax receipts are up unexpectedly and spending is down from the administrations earlier predictions, in part because of GOP-mandated cuts to the day-to-day operating budgets of Cabinet-level depart-

ments and agencies. Of Thursdays report, White House budget director Jacob Lew said: We need to get back on a sustainable scal path and we must invest in long-term economic growth and job creation. Obama plans to outline his ideas for jumpstarting the economy and creating jobs in a primetime address to a joint session of Congress and the nation on Sept. 8. That date was negotiated only after the White House and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, disagreed over Obamas request to give the speech a day earlier Sept. 7 at a time when the Republicans had scheduled a presidential debate. The White House report said that higher oil prices, an economic slowdown in Europe, continuing weakness in the housing sector and the disruption in global supply chains after the devastating earthquake in Japan have dragged down the economy. Uncertainty over raising the U.S. debt ceiling hurt as well, the report said. In sum, economic growth and job creation, while positive, have not been strong enough to bring the unemployment rate down to an acceptable level, the budget ofce reported. The grim report was expected, and it comes a week before Obama reveals his new jobs initiative. The nationally broadcast address from the Capitol will put Obama face to face with tea-party Republicans who are sure to ght any new stimulus spending that he might propose. Thursdays gures do not reect the potential effects of Obamas upcoming jobs plan on the economy or the decit.

Gadhafi, in hiding,vows no surrender

By Ben Hubbard and Maggie Michael

TRIPOLI, Libya In a ery broadcast from hiding, Moammar Gadhafi warned Thursday that loyalist tribes in his main strongholds were armed and preparing for battle, a show of deance hours after rebels extended a deadline for the surrender of the fugitive leaders hometown. The rebels, who have been moving troops toward remaining Gadha bastions across Libya, had shifted the deadline for the town of Sirte in hopes of avoiding the bloodshed that met their attack on Tripoli. We want to save our ghters and not lose a single one in battles with Gadhas forces, said Mohammed al-Rajali, a spokesman for the rebel leadership in the eastern city of Benghazi. In the end, we will get Sirte, even if we have to cut water and electricity and let NATO pound it with airstrikes. World leaders meeting in Paris on Libyas future after Gadha said the NATO military operations would continue as long as needed. The rebels say the advance on Sirte is going well, and that their forces have already captured one nearby city. They also say they are closing in on Gadha, who came to power 42 years ago Thursday in a military coup that toppled King Idris. The rebels have been hunting for Gadha since he was forced into hiding after they swept into Tripoli on Aug. 20 and gained control of most of the capital after days of erce ghting. We wont surrender again; we are not

women. We will keep ghting, Gadha said in a blustery tone in the audio statement, broadcast by Syrian-based Al-Rai TV. His voice was recognizable, and Al-Rai has previously broadcast statements by Gadha and his sons. Moammar Gadha said the tribes Gadha in Sirte and Bani Walid are armed and there is no way they will submit. He called for continued resistance, warning the battle will be long and let Libya burn. In a second late-night audio also broadcast on the Syrian channel, Gadha spoke in more measured tones and called for a long insurgency. We will ght them everywhere, he said. We will burn the ground under their feet. He said NATO was trying to occupy Libya and steal its oil. Get ready to ght the occupation. ... Get ready for a long war, imposed on us, Gadha added. Get ready for the guerrilla war. He called Sirte the capital of the resistance. The rebels, who have effectively ended Gadhas rule, dismiss his threats as empty rhetoric. The rebels believe he may be in one of their three key targets. The ghters, backed by NATO airstrikes, have been pushing recently toward Sirte as well as Bani Walid, 90 miles (140 kilometers) southeast of Tripoli, and the southern city of Sabha.

World leaders back new Libyan administration

Clinton: Libya must deal with Lockerbie bomber

By Matthew Lee

PARIS U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told Libyan opposition leaders Thursday that they must deal with the case of the only person convicted in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing and that the U.S. will be watching closely how they handle it. The bomber should be behind bars, Clinton said. Meeting with senior members of Libyas National Transitional Council, Clinton said Abdel Baset al-Megrahis release from prison and the current status of the former Libyan intelligence ofcer are of deep concern to the

Obama administration. The conversations took place amid increased clamoring from U.S. lawmakers and leading Republican presidential candidates for Megrahis return to prison or even extradition. The ailing al-Megrahi Hillary Clinton was released in 2009 on compassionate grounds, eight years into a life sentence in Scotland, after doctors predicted he would die of prostate cancer within three months.

PARIS World leaders lined up behind Libyas new de facto administration Thursday and a U.N.-led effort to stabilize the country after decades under Moammar Gadhas rule. But the struggle for Libyas future is not over and NATOs military operation will continue as long as needed to protect civilians, British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy said. Leaders and envoys from 60 nations and world bodies such as the United Nations and NATO met in Paris for talks with Libyas rebel-led National Transitional Council to map out Libyas future after Gadhas ouster. We cannot afford a failed pariah state on Europes borders, Cameron said. We will all lose if the Arab Spring gives way to a cynical winter of repression. There were also warnings about Libyas continued instability, its tribal tensions and

ravaged infrastructure. Libyans at Thursdays meeting stressed the point that there is no cease-re, that there is still a military threat from Gadha. They also expressed concern about the (possible) use of chemical weapons, Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt said. A second delegation also conrmed that Libyan envoys had raised at the meeting their fears that Gadha loyalists may have access to chemical weapons. However, Western government arms experts believe that loyalists forces no longer have the hardware to deploy the weapons, after repeated NATOled airstrikes on military targets. The group also agreed to try to release billions in frozen assets linked to Gadha in banks around the world, Sarkozy said. The United Nations has already unblocked $6 billion from banks in the U.S., Britain and France. We are committed to returning to the Libyans the monies of yesterday for the building of tomorrow, he said.

Mandelkern,Miljanich,Schwarz for SMCCC board

ommunity colleges, like social or police services, sees need go up as the economy goes down. So it is with this economy as more San Mateo County residents are interested in attending the three local community colleges to refresh job skills or get degrees. Unfortunately, the poor economy also means there is less money for schools in general. Contending with that conundrum has been an ongoing issue for members of the San Mateo County Community College District Board of Trustees. At times their work is controversial, however, as some classes with low enrollment must be discontinued and other classes with more prospects for the future and that create the potential for more employment opportunity must be envisioned. It is a delicate balancing act that includes the input of not just the trustees, but district ofcials, school administrators, faculty, staff and students. Communication always has its challenges, but that is a work in progress. There is also the key matter of building for the future. For the past 10 years, the district has methodically undergone large-scale renovations at Skyline and Caada colleges and the College of San Mateo because of the generosity of San

Mateo County voters who approved two bond measures. A four-year parcel tax to generate $6 million a year was also passed in June 2010. The district is in the midst of asking voters for another bond measure to complete its capital improvement program whether that should be supported, particularly since the district has asked for a signicant amount of money in recent years is a conversation for another day. The question now is whether incumbents Dave Mandelkern, Patricia Miljanich and Karen Schwarz running for re-election are worthy of a return to ofce. The answer to that is yes. However, challengers Joe Ross and Michael Stogner should be lauded for creating a conversation about the district and its nances rather than simply allowing the incumbents to walk back into ofce without public scrutiny of the work theyve taken on the past four years. Stogner, a described watchdog, admits the current trustees have done a good job but wants more details on their decisions and whether a new $564 million bond measure is warranted. Ultimately, howev-

er, he says it is up to voters to decide. Ross, a young education nonprot director, also believes the current trustees are doing a good job and said the district could even be held up as a model for other districts facing similar challenges. Ross offers up a unique perspective in his work partnering with public middle schools in Redwood City, Oakland, Campbell and East Palo Alto to expand the learning day and create further community connections. His desire to bring awareness of educational funding shortfalls and its impact is certainly worthy and merited. This race may be the beginning of a conversation between Ross and his partners with ofcials from middle schools, high schools and colleges in San Mateo County and elsewhere about the need to engage everyone in the improvement of the education experience. The district would be wise to include him in a committee to explore such important matters. Once that conversation has started, perhaps Ross can consider running again to bring fresh energy to the board. But for now, our best choices for the San Mateo County Community College Board of Trustees are the incumbents Mandelkern, Miljanich and Schwarz.

Eighty and counting

nside every older person is a younger person wondering what happened. Jennifer Yane. Ted and I play bocce ball a couple of times a week at the San Bruno Senior Center. We started (along with his sister and brother-in-law) about 12 years ago when we were considerably more sprightly and the league had not been organized for very long. In those days we won a lot but now that so many of the other teams are composed of serious competitors, many of whom are just young squirts in their 60s, we are amazed and delighted if we manage to pull out a win. But the best thing about playing is the camaraderie that has developed over the years and, of course, getting outside in the fresh air and moving about a bit. And for us who have knee or hip problems, we can sit while the others take their turns. While I was sitting there the other day, I noticed that what came through about us senior citizens is that were all doing our best to hang in there and have a good time doing it. I couldnt help but admire the man who recently turned 90 as he carefully placed his towel on the ground, went down on one knee, threw the ball and got back up with no assistance! I guess he hasnt heard the old bromide, Dont let aging get you down. Its too hard to get back up. But equally valiant are those who persevere despite physical limitations like my sister-in-law and others who come with their canes and sometimes save the game by zeroing in on the pallino. Since this is about some of the octogenarians (and older) who I admire, the scene shifts to my sister who turned 91 on Aug. 1. Shes still sharp as a tack and has good hearing and eyesight. Her knees arent so good (it runs in the family), but she still volunteers in her community and just had her drivers license renewed for five years. All through our lives, she has been there for me. When we were young, she was a big help as I tried to deal with our very dysfunctional family especially during my adolescence. My sister has suffered many tragic losses during her lifetime and has come through with her love of life and generosity of spirit still intact. Ive been lucky that Ive always had her to look up to and try to emulate. Then theres Warren Buffett who turned 80 on Aug. 30. I admire him because hes one of the billionaires who seems to have it all together. He recently wrote a column for the New York Times titled, Stop Coddling the Rich. Hes one of the super-rich who seems to be unassuming and down to earth. He displays his modesty about his status by reminding us in an interview with Charlie Rose on PBS that his good fortune has come because of good luck from being born in the United States of America, having the right parents and his opportunities to take part in a very friendly stock market and extremely lucrative investments. Buffett is one of the few billionaires who seem to have a heart. He believes in sharing with those less fortunate instead of greedily clinging to his bounty as so many do screaming like banshees even when a tax cut on the wealthy is due to expire. He adds that the wealthy should pay more taxes. As he wrote, My friends and I have been coddled long enough by a billionaire-friendly Congress. Its time for our government to get serious about shared sacrifice. Yes! I must not let this opportunity pass without mentioning Keith Kreitman. He inspired me to write columns again at my advanced age. I figured if he could do it (hes even older than me), I could too. And, of course, since I agree with his viewpoint about politics, I assume he is a very astute man. Last, but certainly not least, is my long-suffering husband, Ted, who has put up with me all of these many, many years through thick and thin. He qualifies in all of the above categories. Hes an intrepid bocce player. Hes like the Rock of Gibraltar. Hes generous, our political views mesh, he encourages me in my writing, and besides all that, hes quite affectionate. What more could I ask? Eda Le Shan, author of Its Better to be Over the Hill than Under It, had a way of telling it like it is. It is good to be alive as long as we know who we are, accept where we are and can still bring meaning into our lives by our own creativity and what we can do for others.

Leadership needed to transform U.S.Postal Service

By Rosemarie Fernandez

either snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night ... will stay us from the swift completion of our appointed rounds. For more than 235 years, the U.S. Postal Service has adhered to this unofcial creed. But now, the agency that is responsible for delivering mail to every citizen at affordable rates is facing a nancial crisis. The increased use of the Internet, combined with an ongoing recession, has had an unprecedented impact on our countrys mail volume and on the Postal Services bottom-line. We have responded by pursuing every available option under our control to aggressively cut costs, including slashing annual operating expenses by more than $12 billion and reducing our size by 110,000 career positions during the past four years. We also continue to consolidate our processing facilities and right-size our expansive retail network. At the same time, the Postal Service is continuing to work with local retailers to expand access to postal products and services at more convenient locations where people already shop, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, ofce supply stores and other appropriate retailers. These aggressive efforts, however, are insufcient to close projected budget decits and ensure the survival of the Postal Service beyond our current scal

year, which ends on Sept. 30. The Postal Service needs Congress to enact legislation by this September that would eliminate the current mandate requiring retiree health benet pre-payments, which costs the Postal Service $5.5 billion annually. If it were not for the unique health benet prefunding requirement, the Postal Service would have recorded a cumulative prot of $1 billion from 2007 to 2010. We also are exploring legislative proposals that would enable us to establish our own health benets program, administer our own retirement system and adjust the size of our workforce to match operational needs and the changing marketplace. Legislation also is needed to return a $6.9 billion overpayment into the Federal Employees Retirement System. In addition, legislation is needed to give us the authority to determine the frequency of mail delivery, which can save the Postal Service roughly $3 billion each year. The Postal Service is not seeking tax subsidies. We receive no tax dollars for operating expenses, and rely on the sale of postage, products and services to fund our operations. Moreover, the Postal Service is not seeking additional borrowing authority. Indeed, the absolute last thing that Postal Service wants or needs is to incur additional debt. What the

Guest perspective
Postal Service needs is access to the money we already have over-paid into our retirement fund. Even in an increasingly digital world, the Postal Service remains critical to the economy, supporting a mailing industry that represents more than 8 million jobs and more than $1 trillion in commercial activity annually. Regardless of how many people use the Internet to pay their bills and send documents, the core function of the Postal Service and core need of its customers the physical delivery of mail and packages to Americas homes and businesses will always exist. And despite doom and gloom headlines, the Postal Service can have a bright future and be put on the road to protability if given the exibility from Congress to operate more like a business does. Its time for Congress to swiftly complete its rounds, and pass substantive legislation to transform the Postal Service business model which will put it on a sound nancial footing for generations to come.
Rosemarie Fernandez is the district manager for the San Francisco Postal District.

By 10:30 a.m. indexes were trading mixed and stayed that way until 1:30 p.m., when the Fed announced its action against Goldman Sachs. Stocks drifted lower for the rest of the day, with bank stocks losing the most. The Federal Reserve said there were decient practices in mortgage loan servicing and the processing of foreclosures at Goldmans former Litton unit. Goldman also reached a settlement with a New York state banking regulator over Litton in which it agreed to stop controversial practices such as the robo-signing of documents. That settlement was also announced Thursday. Other banks followed Goldman lower. Citigroup Inc. lost 3.4 percent and PNC Financial Services Group Inc. fell 3.2 percent. Bank of America Corp., which is facing many lawsuits over its dealings in mortgage-backed securities, also fell 3.2 percent. The regulatory actions showed that problems related to the mortgage crisis in 2008 remain far from over, said Quincy Krosby, market strategist at Prudential Financial.

Award against SAP overturned in Oracle case

By Jordan Robertson

SAN FRANCISCO A federal judge has thrown out a $1.3 billion jury verdict against German business software maker SAP AG, slamming the penalty as grossly excessive and dealing an unexpected setback to SAPs Silicon Valley rival Oracle Corp. The ruling Thursday is a surprising twist in a landmark intellectual property case. Larry Ellison, Oracles outspoken

CEO, has provided ample theatrics, pillorying SAP for its amateurish theft of software and customer-support documents from password-protected Oracle websites. SAP has admitted that a nowshuttered subsidiary, TomorrowNow, committed the offense. Oracle is the leading maker of database software, which helps companies organize their information. Its aggressive expansion into business applications has forced Oracle into a faceoff with SAP, the leader in that space. Oracle argued that the stolen information helped SAP steal customers by

offering similar services at cheaper prices. SAP argued that TomorrowNow wasnt that great at stealing customers with the information anyway and should have to pay only $40 million for accounts that SAP did manage to lure away. The jury ultimately awarded Oracle more than 30 times that amount after a three-week trial last November. It was one of the largest verdicts in a case involving software-related theft and showed how severely jurors were willing to punish corporations for intellectualproperty theft from rivals.

The setback triggered a 9 percent drop in Netix Inc.s stock price late Thursday. Starz Entertainment delivered the bad news in a terse statement announcing that it wont renew a contract that allows Netix to show a lineup of recently released movies and TV shows over high-speed Internet connections. That means Starz content will be removed from Netixs streaming service starting in March. Starz library includes movies from Walt Disney Co.s assorted studios and, until recently, Sony Corp. The content from Starz cable TV channel played an instrumental role in increasing usage of Netixs Internet service and contributed to Netixs ability to add nearly 17 million subscribers since the deal was signed in October 2008. Netix had been expected to work out a new contract with Starz, although at a much higher price than the estimated $30 million a year that it had been paying under the current contract. Netix CEO Reed Hastings acknowledged earlier this year that he wouldnt be surprised if the company paid as much as $250 million a year to retain the Starz rights when the current contract expires in February.

Ground and pound

The Serra Padres enter every football season with the same goal: to win the West Catholic Athletic League and make some serious noise in the playoffs. But, you have to go back to 1990 to nd the last time a Padres football team has made the ultimate thump and won a Central Coast Section title. Will 2011 be the year? The answer is always a gauntlet for one of the most consistent and athletically gifted programs in the county. One cant talk Serra football without rst taking into consideration the beast that is the WCAL and this year, there are two monsters at the forefront in Bellarmine Prep and Valley Christian. Two of Serras last three games are against the WCAL juggernauts. Still, as it is with every season, every week will be a substantial challenge for the Padres; that is nothing new. Given the offensive repower that lives within the top team in the WCAL, the key to Serras success will lie in their defense, which in 2010 ranked fth in the league with 259 points allowed. The only good news is, we werent great last year on defense, said Serra head coach Patrick Walsh. It just wasnt our best year. So we spent a lot of time in the off-season focusing on that part of our game. With a bunch of new kids, were starting with a clean slate.

Bulldogs primed for 2011

Serra running back Erich Wilson,who recently gave a verbal commitment to University of Colorado,will pair with Eric Redwood to give the Padres a potent one-two punch out of the backeld.

College of San Mateo head football coach Bret Pollack and his coaching staff are big believers in competition. And that means no starting position is ever really set until a couple of days before game day. So trying to nd out who will do what this year can be a bit elusive. There are no starters right now, said defensive coordinator and assistant head coach Tim Tulloch. That being said, the Bulldogs, once again, have the talent to contend for a NorCal Conference championship. If they can avoid the injury bug that threw a wrench into the plans last year, CSM should be right there. We had a good summer. On the offensive side, we have veteran offensive line. We have some playmakers, said Pollack, who also serves as the teams offensive coordinator. On the defensive side, we have a very good linebacking corps, some returning starters in the secondary. The most turnover is on the defensive line. We have to put it all together. The quarterback competition is a three-way race between Miles Freeman, who split time last year, along with two grayshirt freshmen, Blake Plattsmeier and John

Season kicks off with 12 games today

By Nathan Mollat

The San Mateo County 2011 high school football season kicks off today with 12 games on the schedule. Four Peninsula Athletic League teams square off against each other: Kings Academy at Carlmont, 3:15 p.m., and El Camino at Menlo-Atherton, 7 p.m. Here is a brief look at the matchups. Records are from the 2010 season.

pulling away for a 41-20 win. Galileo nished fourth in San Franciscos public-school league, but advanced to the AAA championship game, losing to regular-season champ Washington.

Sequoia away from qualifying for CCS.

Homestead (2-4 SCVAL De Anza Division,8-5 overall) at Half Moon Bay (3-2 PAL Ocean,8-4 overall),6 p.m.
These two teams squared off in the season opener in 2010, with Homestead handing Half Moon Bay a 38-14 loss. To show how tough the Mustangs Santa Clara Valley Athletic League De Anza Division is, Homestead went only 2-4 against the likes of Palo Alto, Los Gatos and Wilcox, and yet the Mustangs still nished with an overall record of 8-5 and advanced to the CCS Division I championship game, losing to Piedmont Hills. The Cougars nished 1-3

against playoff-bound teams in the 2010, with their biggest win coming over eventual Division III champ Terra Nova, which earned the Cougars a slot in CCS.

Kings Academy (2-3 PAL Bay,6-5 overall) at Carlmont (3-2 PAL Lake, 6-4 overall)
Both the Knights and Scots are in a bit of a rebuilding mode this season. Just playing in the Bay Division, however, should give Kings Academy a decided edge. The Knights won three of their nal four games to qualify for the playoffs last year, losing in the rst round of the Division IV playoffs, 50-21, to eventual nalist Carmel. The Scots were an overtime loss to

Milpitas (3-3 SCVAL De Anza Division, 6-4-1 overall) at Jefferson (5-0 PAL Ocean,9-3 overall)
The Trojans play in, traditionally, one of the strongest divisions in CCS, the Santa Clara Valley Athletic Leagues De Anza Division, facing the likes of defending Division I state champion Palo Alto, and perennial powers Los Gatos and Wilcox. Following a 350 loss to Palo Alto, Milpitas ripped off three straight wins to qualify for CCS

Mills (0-5 PAL Lake, 0-10 overall) at Galileo-SF (5-2 AAA, 6-6 overall)
Mills hosted the Lions in the season opener last year and stayed with them for a half, trailing 22-12 at halftime. But Galileo poured it on in the second half,

Eight things to watch for this football season

By Julio Lara

The 2011-2012 season will mark my fth covering local sports in the county, and if Im being super honest, this is the most excited Ive ever been. All three football races in the Peninsula Athletic League will be tightly contested, which should provide fans with ve weeks of competitive football across the board that alone is reason enough to get one stoked for a new year. But after writing 10 different prep football previews, and reading at least another 10, undoubtedly there are some particular things Im looking forward to as we strike up the band, gently place the football on the tee and kick off a brand new football season in no particular order: Sequoia quarterback James Beekley: Im no quarterback guru, but if theres one position I know well on the football eld, its the

signal-caller and for my money, Sequoia quarterback James Beekley has all the tools to have a monster season for the Cherokees size, arm strength and, with another year of starting experience under his belt, the smarts. I think we have a few more receiver weapons for him, head coach Ron Poulos told the Daily Journal earlier this week. Last year, we were so ground oriented. This year, hell get a chance to throw the ball a little more. Great quarterback play isnt very prevalent in this county. I can count on one hand the quarterbacks who have truly impressed me throwing the football over the years. I think Beekley will have the kind of season that will land him on that list. (Other QB to watch: Chris Forbes of Terra Nova). The Jefferson defense: Indians head coach Ako Poti tried, but could not contain the excitement in his voice when talking about his 2011 defense to paraphrase the thirdBears, however, turned their season around and qualied for CCS by winning their nal two games of the regular season. This game marks M-As rst home game with its new permanent lighting.


Jefferson coach Ako Poti believes he has the defense to keep the Indians competitive in the PALs Bay Division.
year coach, Jeffersons D will be fast, aggressive, hard-hitting and more importantly, theyll be playing with a chip on their shoulders. in the SCVAL equivalent of the PALs Ocean Division. Its the second year in a row these two schools open the season. South City held on for a 13-12 win in 2010. After starting 2010 with two straight wins, the Warriors proceeded to lose three in a row. South Citys 2010 preseason was comprised of three teams from the El Camino Division, going 2-1 against Santa Clara (1312 win), Monta Vista-Cupertino (25-7 win) and Mountain View (2012 loss). In 2008, the year before Poti took over, Jefferson gave up 336 points. Last season, that number dropped to 205. Capuchino (1-4 PAL Lake, 2-7 overall) vs. Valley Christian-Dublin (3-2 Bay Football League, 4-7 overall) at Chabot College-Hayward, 7 p.m. Capuchinos lone 2010 nonleague win came in Week 2, 14-12 over Mt. Eden-Hayward, and the Mustangs only Lake Division win came in the season nale, 28-0 over rival Mills. The Vikings play in the North Coast Sections Bay Football Conference, once the home conference of Sacred Heart Prep. The Vikings play all their home games at Chabot College, which is a good 25-minute drive from Dublin. They are coached by former NFL defensive lineman John Parella.

If I didnt think our returning defense was good, I probably would have kept us in the Ocean (Division). I think our defense can run with pretty much any team in the Bay, Poti said. If the Indians are to prove they belong with the PAL elite, the defense will have to do most, if not all of, the talking. (Other defenses to watch: Menlo-Atherton, South City). The Terra Nova offense: Sports Editor Nathan Mollat said it best, when the dean of football on the Peninsula (Terra Nova head coach Bill Gray) says something, he means it. And in telling the Daily Journal about his 2011 team, Gray said that he has never coached a faster team in his 22 years. Terra Nova returns their dynamic quarterback Forbes, along with enough weapons on the outside to make Tony Stark jealous receivers Nick Manessis, Jake

non-league games. Then the reality of playing in the WCAL set in and they lost six of their next seven games.

Continued from page 11
last season, falling to Salinas, 2213, in the rst round. Jefferson, went undefeated in Ocean Division play to earn a CCS berth and was 32 in non-league play. The Indians advanced to the CCS Division III seminals, losing to Terra Nova 2119 on a last-minute touchdown.

Menlo School (4-1 PAL Ocean, 8-4 overall) at Santa Cruz (2-4 Santa Cruz Coast Athletic League, 4-5-1 overall), 7 p.m.
This will be the second year in a row the Cardinals are opening the season against a PAL opponent. They lost 44-22 to Carlmont to open the 2010 season. Santa Cruz nished only ahead of Harbor in its seven-team league. Menlo was a point away from winning the Ocean Division, but fell 14-13 to Jefferson. 2010 was the second year in a row Menlo advanced to at least the seminals of CCS, losing to rival and eventual champion Sacred Heart Prep last year.

Burlingame (3-2 PAL Bay, 6-5 overall) at Saratoga (2-4 SCVAL De Anza Division, 5-5 overall), 7:30 p.m.
Yet another SCVAL-PAL matchup. The Falcons were in position to make the playoffs last season, before a three-game losing streak to end the season ended their playoff hopes. Burlingame went 1-2 against the De Anza Division during the 2010 non-league portion of its schedule, beating Gunn but losing to Palo Alto and Homestead.

El Camino (3-2 PAL Lake, 5-5 overall) at Menlo-Atherton (23 PAL Bay, 4-7 overall), 7 p.m.
If the Bears pick up where they left off last season, it could be a long night for the Colts. El Camino had a surprising strong season in 2010. The Colts won their rst two Lake Division games, before dropping back-to-back decisions to Sequoia and Carlmont. A 47-20 win over Capuchino assured the Colts a winning record in league play and at least a .500 record overall. M-A got off to a horrible start in 2010, losing its rst three games by a combined score of 86-23. The

Branham (1-6 Blossom Valley Athletic League Santa Teresa Division,1-9 overall) at Sequoia (5-0 PAL Lake, 11-1-1 overall), 7 p.m.
Sequoia smacked the Bruins 44-0 to open the 2010 season. It was a rough year for Branham last season, as the Bruins gave up 27 points or more in nine games. Sequoia went undefeated through its rst 11 games last season. The Cherokees only loss? A 47-14 loss to Willow Glen in the CCS Division II championship game.

Terra Nova (4-1 PAL Bay, 9-4 overall) vs. Sacred Heart Cathedral (1-6 WCAL, 4-6 overall) at Kezar Stadium, 7:30 p.m.
The Irish topped the Tigers 42-28 to open the 2010 season. Terra Nova actually opened last season with two straight losses. After losing to Cathedral, the Tigers dropped a 27-14 decision to Wilcox-Santa Clara. The Irish started 2010 with a bang, winning three straight

Hillsdale (3-2 PAL Lake, 6-4 overall) at Aptos (3-1-2 Santa Cruz Coast Athletic League, 54-2 overall), 7:30 p.m.
The Knights had their secondstraight season of winning records in both league and overall. The Mariners should provide a stiff test for Hillsdale as they nished in second place behind San Lorenzo Valley in the SCCAL.

Santa Clara (4-2 SCVAL El Camino Division, 6-4 overall) at South City (2-3 PAL Ocean, 5-4 overall), 7 p.m.
The Bruins nished in third place

Giants season on line this weekend


SAN FRANCISCO A series that for so long has been billed as an early September showdown between division rivals has suddenly turned into San Franciscos last stand. If the reigning World Series champion Giants want to keep any hopes alive of defending their title, they had better show up and score runs in this weekends crucial matchup with the rst-place Arizona Diamondbacks. The D-backs (78-59) hold a sixgame lead in the NL West race with 25 to go for each club and are riding a nine-game winning streak. Both teams had the day off Thursday to rest up for what most certainly will be an intense, entertaining three days at sold-out AT&T Park. Even the Giants acknowledge this

very well could be make-or-break. I dont see how it couldnt be, outelder Pat Burrell said. I think this team responds better when all the chips are out on the table. Theres no secret, these guys are coming in and theyve proven they deserve to be where theyre at. And weve slipped, no doubt about it. But it isnt over. Were going to ght this thing out. General manager Brian Sabean shook things up Wednesday when he designated for assignment veterans Aaron Rowand and Miguel Tejada. Promising shortstop Brandon Crawford is among the reinforcements expected to arrive Friday as September callups for the reeling Giants. San Francisco swept a three-game home series against Arizona from May 10-12 with three one-run wins, then the D-backs took two of three here be nosetackle Dan Godfrey. Luke Longinotti and Darren Sabean will see time on the defensive front as well. On the outside will be newcomers Brendan Hisao, Cody Brown and a very young Daniel Lavulo. The Padre secondary will be fast with Erich Wilson and Chad Baur at the corner positions. Both were clocked at 4.38 seconds in the 40yard dash over the summer. Walsh said that Wilson will probably line up against the oppositions best receiver. Im really looking forward to having some legitimate speed in the secondary, Walsh said. More for me, it was getting back to fundamentals, Walsh said of the defense. Also, it was reestablishing the attitude that, when you play Serra High School, youre going to play a tough, defensive-minded team. Offensively, when watching the Serra football team in 2011, we can offer you one key bit of advice: dont blink. And some, if not all of that

I think this team responds better when all the chips are out on the table.Theres no secret,these guys are coming in and theyve proven they deserve to be where theyre at.And weve slipped,no doubt about it. But it isnt over.Were going to ght this thing out.
Pat Burrell, Giants outelder

Aug. 1-3 by beating All-Star aces Matt Cain and Tim Lincecum. Playing there is always really exciting, Arizona 17-game winner Ian Kennedy said. Their pitching staff, you know theyre going to throw well there. Its kind of like a playoff atmosphere. I think this time is going to be a little more interesting because its ipped around. We were chasing them the last time there, now theyre chasing us. As always, Arizona skipper Kirk revolves around probably the most electric and fastest player in the county in Wilson, who is also Serras starting tailback. The Colorado-bound rusher ran for a team-high 972 yards last season on only 123 carries good for a smidge under eight yard per carry. Wilson is more than capable of taking the ball to the house on any given carry. The thunder to his lighting is Eric Redwood, who also averaged almost eight yards a carry in 2010 with 551 on 69 carries. We denitely have two solid running backs, Walsh said. Both are proven runners in the WCAL and theyre both tough, aggressive and fast runners. Handing the ball off and orchestrating the Serra option will be Erdie. Erdie was moved from his defensive position to take the snaps. Walsh said Erdie is an aggressive runner as well, and should compliment The Erics quite nicely. Longinotti, Deston Swift, and Matt Pastore will provide the holes for the Serra running attack.

Gibson insists his team is sticking to its mantra: handling business thats within the D-backs control, not worrying about what the Giants might be doing to tweak their roster and make a last-ditch run. Even if thats been challenging to do lately. Its tough to not look at the Giants every day and what theyre doing, but Im sure theyre doing the same thing, watching us, Arizona center elder Chris Young said. We have a lot of

tough games coming up and we have to prepare for those. And I feel like if we can do that, well be all right. Nobody expects this division to be won just yet. But Arizona has surprised the skeptics with its staying power and exceptional pitching under rst-year general manager Kevin Towers. The bangedup Giants havent helped themselves by stumbling since the All-Star break, either. Were pushing a big rock uphill, Sabean said. We know that were running out of games. But weve all been involved in seasons that have turned on the dime 1998 was an example, last year was an example. You never know whats going to happen in the last month of the season. Strange things happen, so theres still hope.

Continued from page 11
Erdie as moved to quarterback for 2011. Peter Tuipulotu will be Bochis partner at the inside linebacker position together, theyll be the core of a defense that will face many a challenge. Last year where we struggled was in two major areas: one was stopping the run and two was getting the team off the eld on third down. Between both those guys, if theyre leading the team in tackles, were going to have a long season on defense again, Walsh said. Those two guys, they have to set the tone on defense, no doubt about it. At the outside linebacker positions, the Padres have some depth with players like Daniel Gavan, Matt Falk, Matt Jacobs, Josh Flores and the young Tyson Torreros Manning the defensive line will

Willis. Freeman and Julian Bernard, who has moved on to play at West Virginia Tech, split time. But both got hurt at various points of the season. While having three healthy quarterbacks is not ideal, it does allow for contingency plans. It sure would have helped us last year, Pollack said. We only had two (quarterbacks) last year. And the competition couldnt be tighter and the leader can change daily. When asked if the season started today who his starter would be, Pollack said, Both (Freeman and Plattsmeier) would play. Mile has the game experience. Hes played in our league. He understands (what the college game is about). Blake is consistent. Doesnt turn the ball over. John is kind of a hybrid of them both. He can run the option and hes got a strong arm. Pollack said it can also be expected to see a triumvirate at the running back spot with sophomore Vaughn Smith (Menlo-Atherton) and freshmen Jerel Brown (Hillsdale) and Chris Adams (Marin Catholic) all expected to get plenty of carries. Again, injuries hampered what the Bulldogs wanted to accomplish last season. Last year, it was Seta (Pohauhau) who got hurt, Pollack said. (The running back spot) was much more tenuous (last season). Smith, who was electric at M-A, still has the speed to run away from defenses. Adam and Brown are more fullback types, with Pollack especially intrigued by Adams. If he breaks a run, its 12 yards. If theres no hole, its ve yards, Pollack said of Adams. The offensive line should be the

strength of the Bulldogs offense, with three returning starters, and a fourth who saw signicant time last season. And they are big. The smallest guy is another M-A product, Semi Mataele, who is only 6-1, 295 pounds. Hoko Fanaika and Chuck Ragland are both 6-8, with Fanaika, out of the Sacramento area, tipping the scales at about 345. Ragland is slimmer, going just 290. John Murphy and Paul Bevilacqua are both 6-3, with Murphy weighing in at 310 and Bevilacqua at 280. Im happy with where we are (on the offensive line). We have experience, we have depth, we have the quality, Pollack said. Offensive line has to be a strength. They have to be dominating. If there is any weakness on the Bulldogs squad, it could be the defensive line, but Pollack is not too worried at least right now. We have some grayshirts who have to step up, Pollack said. Its world championships. Havent Been included in the Final for the SA Mens 4x400m. Pretty Guttered, Pistorius wrote in a Twitter message. Instead of Pistorius, the South African team decided to go with L.J. van Zyl, who won the bronze medal in the 400 hurdles. After making a historic breakthrough for Paralympic athletes by not necessarily a weakness. Its more of wait and see. I believe in the young guys we have there. Helping the defensive line will be veteran linebacking and secondary crews. Justin Sagote was an all-conference selection last season at linebacker and he will be joined by another returning starter, Jim McDonough. Joining the mix will be a pair of freshmen Sione Sina and former Mills standout Tevita Latiamua. The Bulldogs return three of four starters in the defensive backeld with Ron Fields an all-conference selection, Alex Hubbard and Lucky Dozier. Also in the mix will be Nate Jackson, a grayshirt freshmen out of Terra Nova. I really dont see any weaknesses at any position. Can we get stronger? Of course we can, Pollack said. I think were on track. Were right where we need to be right now. reaching the seminals of the 400 early this week, the Blade Runner ran a strong opening leg on the tough inside lane Thursday to help South Africa to a third-place nish in its heat and a South African record. Team manager Magda Botha said in a statement the decision was based on factual information and knowledge after a meeting with the athletes early Friday. Smith, Elias Vargas and Ryan Virgin, combined for 218 catches for over 3,000 yards and 26 touchdowns in 2010. Terra Nova scored 417 points in 2010, good for second in the Bay, and there is no reason to believe that the Tigers wont be the PALs version of The Greatest Show On Turf. This season, if you love offense, Pacica will be the place to be. (Other offenses that have me giddy: Menlo, Sequoia). Serra running back Erich Wilson: There might not be a more explosive player in the County this season than Serra running back Erich Wilson. The Colorado-bound tailback for the Padres averaged almost eight yards a carry in 2010, while nding the end zone 11 times. The South City snack shack: Football season isnt just about the sport on the eld, but the atmosphere created by the campus on game day. And of course, as any good journalist will tell you, we love to eat. Maybe too much. South City is one of those places that always does an awesome job with their menu. Im a particular fan of their teriyaki chicken bowls and always make it a priority to arrive a couple minutes early before a Warriors game to grab a bite to eat. This year shall be no different. (Save room in your belly for: Burlingame, Sequoia and Half Moon Bay, too). San Mateo wide receiver Andrew Ho: Jeff Scheller, San Mateo head coach, said of AllLeaguer Andrew Ho, I feel that we have the best receiver in the league, hands-down. Ill put him one-onone with anybody, anyone on any The 24-year-old Pistorius can still get a medal if South Africa nishes in the top three because he ran in the heats. It was already considered an amazing performance for Pistorius to get into the 400 seminals on his carbonber blades, but Thursday, the relay performance did one better. The IAAF had said that Pistorius could only run the leadoff leg of the

team, any league. Ho averaged 25 yards a reception in 2010 and was second in the Ocean Division in receiving yards. In a league where the run dominates the offensive gameplan, its hard to have a true breakout season at the wide receiver position. Ho has the tools, the speed and the routerunning ability, to have a stellar 2011. The question is, can newcomer Trevor Brill get him the football? San Mateo fans sure hope so. (Other wide receivers to watch: those in Terra Nova and Menlo jerseys). Sequoia linebacker Josh Lauese: At 6-1, 195 pounds, the senior linebacker for the Cherokees is arguably the hardest-hitter on the Peninsula. As coach Rob Poulos told the Daily Journal, were not as big as we were last year ... (but) were still going to punch you in the mouth. And there isnt another player in the league more apt to do just that than Lauese. Not that I enjoy seeing players get physically hurt, but nothing beats watching a game from the sideline and seeing a player like Lauese plow into someone over the middle and having the entire stadium feel it. Lauese has the ability to conjure up those ohhs! (Others bringing the pain: Keoni Keahi of Burlingame, Robert Johnson of South City). October 7, 2011: Burlingame christens a new eld on this date in a game against Menlo-Atherton. What am I looking forward to the most then? The music. The Panthers band is my favorite in the county their interpretation of E-40s Tell Me When To Go, never gets old. Maybe with the grand opening of a new eld, the band will strike up some new hits just no Katy Perry, please.

Sports brief
Oscar Pistorius out of 1,600 relay final at worlds
DAEGU, South Korea Doubleamputee runner Oscar Pistorius was left off South Africas team for the 1,600-meter relay nal Friday, a day after helping the squad qualify at the

relay because it is completed with teams still running in lanes. There were fears that the his blades could be a danger if he had to run in a bunch. Pistorius traditionally has a slow start over the rst 100 meters before picking up more speed and it might have been a reason to leave him off the team. It still was an unexpected decision since he trails only Van Zyl in the South African seasons standings.

49ers beat the Chargers in preseason finale


SAN DIEGO With Frank Gore getting the night off after signing a big deal, Anthony Dixon capped San Franciscos rst two drives with 1-yard touchdown runs and the 49ers beat the San Diego Chargers 20-17 in an exhibition finale Thursday night. It was a last chance for rookies and other players on the bubble to impress the coaches before the nal roster cutdowns on Saturday. Then its on to opening day on

Sept. 11. The 49ers (2-2), under first-year coach Jim Harbaugh, host the Seattle Seahawks. The Chargers (2-2), heading into their fifth year Jim Harbaugh under Norv Turner, host Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings. The Chargers rst-string defense

didnt look impressive against the 49ers running game, allowing 54 yards on the ground on San Franciscos opening drive, which covered 80 yards behind starter Alex Smith. The Bolts have a little more than a week to prepare for Peterson, who set the NFLs singlegame record with 296 yards when the Vikings last played San Diego, in 2007. The 49ers had six sacks. Gore, who rarely plays in exhibitions, sat out a day after signing a $21 million, three-year contract

extension. Smith was in for the rst two drives as the 49ers rebounded from an embarrassing 30-7 loss to Houston. I dont know if we had anything to prove, Smith said. We denitely wanted to get the taste out of our mouth from last week, though. Get some rhythm, convert on some third downs, move some chains and hopefully put points on the board, and we were able to do that. We took the opening drive all the

way down and stuck it in and were able to get the ball on the turnover and put that one in, as well. So it was a great start, said Smith, who was 8 of 10 passing for 45 yards. San Diego held out offensive stars Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates, Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd. Running back Ryan Mathews, coming off an uneven rookie season, showed his speed with a 56yard scoring burst in the second quarter.

Not even major league hockeys shiny, big Stanley Cup trophy dims the glitzy looks of the 2011 Cadillac Escalade ESV. I know, because I chased down the famous hockey trophy while behind the wheel of an Escalade ESV and got a picture of the two impressive symbols of success next to each other. The biggest of Cadillacs Escalade sport utility vehicles, with its audacious, shiny grille and huge, 22-inch wheels, the ESV tester made a perfect backdrop for an impromptu photo opportunity with hockeys top prize as it traveled the country with Boston Bruins personnel. And you better believe that with 403 horses under the hood and good views out over trafc, the tall-riding, powerful Escalade ESV wasnt going to let the revered Stanley Cup make an easy getaway. With starting manufacturers suggested retail price, including destination charge, of $67,030 for a rear-wheel drive model and $69,530 for an all-wheel drive model, the 2011 Escalade ESV is something of a status symbol on its own. It has starred in dozens of music videos and magazine spreads, graced the driveways of celebrities and professional athletes and became a cult vehicle to its followers. Competitors include the 2011 Lincoln Navigator L SUV, which has a starting retail price of $60,790 and a 310-horsepower, 5.4liter V-8, and the 2011 Mercedes-Benz GLClass, which starts at $63,445 with 335-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8. With a larger, 382-horsepower, 5.5-liter V-8, the GL-Class has a starting MSRP, including destination charge, of $86,175. Four-wheel drive is standard in all GL models. No competitor has become an icon over the past dozen years the way the showy Escalade

fered another loss when his grandmother died from cancer in December. North had spent every Christmas with his grandmother in Las Vegas before her death. Cancer had claimed two of Norths closest loved ones in 15 months. As his friend Naggers health continued to decline, someone asked the man whether he had a bucket list. Nagger reflected on the question, North said, and simply said no. The Giants winning the World Series was pretty much all Nagger wanted other than someone taking charge of his after-school improvisational theater classes. He said, this is my happy ending after the Giants won, North recalled Tuesday. Nagger was able to walk with the Giants during the teams victory parade in San Francisco and had his picture taken with the World Series trophy. A few months later on Jan. 20, 2011, however, cancer claimed Naggers life. He was just 59. He was the rst friend I made in California, said North, who now oversees Naggers improvisational theater group on the coast. To honor Nagger, his father and grandmother, North is going to play guitar and sing songs again for another 24-hour stretch starting this Friday at Camerons in Half Moon Bay. This time, North plans to raise TransitAmerica received a consensus top ranking. With a transition to a new rail contractor, federal regulations provide job protections for current employees. There will be a ve-month period during which the new operator will transition into place and mobilize its new management team. During that period, Caltrain and Amtrak will remain in a partnership and Amtrak will continue to operate the railroad as it participates in the transition. The major components of Caltrains new ve-year contract, with ve oneyear options, include the daily stafng and operations of trains, as well as inspection and maintenance of tracks, the passenger rail vehicle eet, rights of way, structures, the signaling and com$10,000 for the American Cancer Society. He hopes to be joined by area musicians on stage throughout the 24-hour event, which will be streamed live over the Internet. Last year, people watching North play live online were able to chat with the musician in real time and even make requests. One woman in her 20s who just lost her husband to cancer asked me to play Man on the Moon by R.E.M. but I had never played it before, North said. North quickly looked the song up online and played it for the rst time. She ended up making quite a generous donation, North said. North heard from a lot of people last year who shared personal stories about cancer and its victims. It was a heavy 24 hours. It was a lot of fun with funny moments. There were tears, too, which I did not anticipate. It was very memorable, North said. Now that he has done the 24-hour marathon once, he knows he can do it again. North, whose stage name is Kevy Nova, hopes to make the event an annual one. Im going to do it every year until there is a cure, he said.

music growing up in Vermont and the two even played in a band together when North was just 15. North decided to take the gift of music his father gave him to ght the disease that took his father from him. His friend Nagger had also been diagnosed with cancer leading up to last years charity event in fact, doctors had only given Nagger about five months to live more than a year before he joined North on stage at Sharis. North met Nagger at Camerons Restaurant & Inn in Half Moon Bay on an open mic night Nagger hosted. The two became fast friends in 2005 and played music together for years. Nagger really only had one wish before he died, North said, to see the San Francisco Giants win the World Series. Nagger was an usher for the Giants for years and was always seen wearing the teams colors. Then, a miracle happened, the Giants won the division, then the pennant and then the World Series. Naggers wish was granted but then his health fell in decline almost immediately after the Giants beat the Rangers. Shortly after the team captured the World Series title, however, North suf-

has. Indeed, the Escalades chromed, bold appearance at its market introduction in the 1999 model year gave the SUV segment a fashion jolt. Today, the Escalades 22-inch wheels still are installed at the factory, not as part of an aftermarket job. In comparison, the biggest factory wheels on the Navigator and the Mercedes GL are 21-inchers. Still, in many ways, the Escalade ESV, which is 20.4 inches longer than a regular Escalade and can carry up to eight people, is old-school. Passengers felt the shuddering and bounce at the four wheels as the suspension of the test Escalade ESV sought to manage the heavy weight of the big wheels over road bumps. Passengers noticed body motions as the Escalade went through curves. The only engine is an overhead valve Vortec V-8, not a newer, double overhead cam powerplant. But its denitely a throaty workhorse, bestowing a towing capacity of 8,000 pounds to the ESV. This compares with 7,500 pounds for the GL-Class. Mated to a six-speed automatic, the ESVs V-8 delivers a commendable 417 foot-pounds of torque at 4,300 rpm. The power in the test Escalade ESV came on with strong, steady delivery in all driving maneuvers. But I noticed transmission shift points, and the shifter was a long stalk off the steering column, similar to shift levers in cars in the 1970s. The Escalade ESV had a tendency to coast when I let up on the accelerator, so I used the brakes to slow down more often than I liked. Some other vehicles today allow more throttle modulation via the accelerator. And I needed a considerable distance to bring this 6,000pound vehicle to a stop. I never saw the federal governments highway mileage rating of 18 mpg in the test ESV model with all-wheel drive, even when I drove all highway and had the vehicle empty of passengers and cargo. In driving that was 65 percent highway and 35 percent city with passengers inside, I averaged 15.5 mpg. Thankfully, I didnt have to buy pricey premium gasoline. The ESV has the largest gas tank 31 gallons of all Escalades, which means a llup of regular costs more than $110 at todays prices. Lincolns Navigator L is 0.4 inch longer, from bumper to bumper, than the Escalade ESV. But theres no complaining about passenger and cargo room inside the ESV. In the top-level Platinum-trim tester with seats for six two in each of the three rows everyone had comfortable headroom, legroom and hiproom. The interior was so quiet, even third-row passengers could converse with everyone without having to speak loudly. I just wish that the backs of my shoes didnt rub against the carpeted ledge that protruded from underneath the third-row seat cushions as I sat back there.

We made an important business decision to go to the marketplace and seek new ideas, new energy and new approaches to how the rail operations contract was administered and performed. The result is an opportunity for a partnership between TransitAmerica and Caltrain that can meet the high expectations we have for a safe, reliable, viable Peninsula commuter rail service now and in the future, Caltrain Executive Director Mike Scanlon wrote in a prepared statement. The proposal presented by

As part of the contract, Caltrain ofcials said it has secured a new innovative clause that will require TransitAmerica to achieve certain performance standards around management, safety, on-time performance and other tasks that are imperative to the operation of the railroad prior to receiving its full management fee. The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board owns and manages Caltrain. The board is a partnership among the San Mateo County Transit District, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority and the county of San Francisco through the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency. SamTrans is the managing partner.

Visual upgrade not much else

By Dirk Lammers

Last years Madden NFL 11 was a great football game, packing enough new features and improvements for fans of earlier EA Sports versions to justify shelling out more cash for an upgrade. Madden NFL 12 ($59.99; Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, rated E) also is a solid game when judged individually, but the tweaks seem far less signicant than in previous years. EA Tiburon again upped the ante in the games visuals, lighting and presentation. The broadcast style presentation is slicker than ever, weaving in team specic tunnel entrances, multiple camera angles and stadium exterior shots. Small touches such as more realistic textures on players mesh jerseys and grass blades and snowakes being

The Debta classy,well-made thriller

By Christy Lemire

Classy, solid and well-acted, The Debt is a rare bit of meaty, intelligent filmmaking during the ordinarily dreary final days of summer. With a cast that includes Helen Mirren, Tom Wilkinson and a tremendous Jessica Chastain, led by Shakespeare in Love director John Madden, it seems it would be hard to go wrong. Matthew Vaughn, the director of Layer Cake and Kick-Ass, co-wrote the script. Its smart and tense but also frustrating; it almost feels too safe, too conservative and reserved in the way it hits its notes. Still, everything about it is so respectable, you may feel engrossed in the moment, yet forget about it soon afterward. A remake of a 2007 Israeli film of the same name, The Debt begins in 1997 with three former Mossad agents being heralded at the launch of a new book that details their most important mission from 30 years earlier. They are Rachel (Mirren), her ex-husband, Stephan (Wilkinson), and their former colleague and friend, David (Ciaran Hinds). The former husband and wife are parents of the author, and the glances they exchange signal that theyre not too comfortable with being celebrated as heroes all these years later. The startling fate that befalls David also provides an early moment of foreboding. Flashback to 1965. The exceed-

Hanky time: Movies that make me cry

By Christy Lemire

LOS ANGELES Its my birthday this week. No need to concern yourselves with how old I am. But since its my party, Ill cry if I want to. Here are ve movies that consistently reduce me to a blubbering little girl:

E.T.:The Extra-Terrestrial (1982):

A remake of a 2007 Israeli lm of the same name,The Debtbegins in 1997 with three former Mossad agents being heralded at the launch of a new book that details their most important mission from 30 years earlier.
ingly capable Rachel (Chastain) and the strong, stoic David (Sam Worthington) are pretending to be a young married couple trying to have a baby in order to get close to an East Berlin doctor named Dieter Vogel (a chilling Jesper Christensen), a Nazi war criminal known notoriously during World War II as the Surgeon of Birkenau. Under the leadership of the swaggering Stephan (Martin Csokas), the team is to kidnap Vogel and bring him back to Israel to stand trial. Despite their training and focus, this does not exactly go as planned, and the ways in which the agents fail are more interesting than the build-up of watching them function in high gear. Madden proves himself surprisingly adept at crafting this kind of brainy, brawny action thriller with a mixture of wellplaced silences and visceral camerawork. As it jumps back and forth in time, The Debt explores the conflict between expectations and reality, intellect and emotions, truth and regret. The films gray areas are so intriguing that youll wish it didnt rely on a facile love triangle to create further tension and add yet another layer of history between these three characters. The needless romance further bogs down the third act, which grows unfortunately messy as it tries to tie up various loose ends and satisfy the audiences need for justice. Still, the performances are consistently strong, especially from Chastain in a far more grounded, muscular role than weve seen from her this year in The Tree of Life and The Help. Meanwhile, Mirren can do tough-but-vulnerable in her sleep; these two are the most plausible duo of the three. As exciting and condent as Csokas is, its hard to believe hell morph into Wilkinson eventually, and Worthington-to-Hinds is the most bafing of all. Unless maybe were supposed to believe that all those years of secrets and lies have really taken a toll. The Debt, a Focus Features and Miramax Films release, is rated R for some violence and language. Running time: 113 minutes. Three stars out of four. If you follow Five Most each week, you know of my nostalgic love of E.T. Ive seen it a million times and I know whats going to happen every time. I know E.T. is going to live, and that the little guy is going to phone home, and that his spaceship is going to swoop down in the middle of suburban Southern California to pick him up and take him back to his planet where he belongs. Doesnt matter. Those curious blue eyes of his, and the tenderness of the friendship between E.T. and Elliott, never fail to move me to tears. And its impossible not to feel overwhelmed by that big, iconic John Williams score. Yes, I realize I am a total dork. Moving on ...

The person was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter and declined to be identied. Facebook is expected to reveal the specic set of tools at its developer conference in San Francisco, called f8, on Sept. 22. Spokesman Larry Wu said Facebook had nothing new to announce. Many of the most popular music services around the world are integrated with Facebook and were constantly talking to our partners about ways to improve these integrations, he said in a statement. This week, subscription leader Rhapsody launched a beta version of its integration using Facebooks sign-in tool, Facebook Connect. A Rhapsody customer can now like an artist or song, and doing so lets others know in the persons Facebook news feed. Liked artists are synced across both services and Rhapsody subscribers can listen to artists that their friends have liked on Facebook. But there is no way currently to nd out exactly what a friend is listening to at a particular moment, nor can a Facebook friend join in and simultaneously listen to what a Rhapsody user is playing in real time. Rhapsody spokeswoman Jaimee Steele said the company is denitely interested in improving its Facebook tools. We think that music is a very social experience and we are always looking at ways to enhance that experience, she said. Swedish new entrant Spotify allows Facebook friends to access the playlists their friends have chosen to share. Rdio allows people to connect through Facebook, follow other Rdio users and nd out what albums they have been listening to the most. Rdio CEO Drew Larner and MOG spokeswoman Marni Greenberg declined to comment. Facebooks new tools are an incremental step in getting people to pay for music even if Facebook itself does not stand to gain directly.

Facebook to allow music integration

By Ryan Nakashima

LOS ANGELE Facebook is preparing to bolster the programming tools it offers to licensed music services like Rhapsody, Spotify, MOG and Rdio to make it easier for users of the social network to nd out what songs their friends are digging. The tools wont amount to a unique music service on its own, since Facebook has not negotiated licensing deals with major music companies, according to a person familiar with the matter. But it will make give Facebook users yet another reason to stick around. Being more aware of what your friends are listening to could make the subscription music plans more attractive. They all offer unlimited listening to millions of new and old tracks on mobile devices for $10 a month, but they have yet to gain enough traction to replace revenue the music industry has lost from declining compact disc sales.

The S&M singers lawsuit claims she would not have paid $6.9 million for the home in 2009 if she had known about the problems. She claims water leaked into several rooms of the house from a balcony that lacks the proper slope and drainage after a rainstorm in early 2010.

networks trying to push a sexual agenda on American families, he said Thursday. The organization is not calling for a boycott of the show, but Chaz Bono online group is. It says on its website that the casting of Bono and openly-gay reality star Carson Kressley is completely unacceptable and Christians should not watch the show, no excuses! Besides Bono and Kressley, the new cast includes basketball star Ron Artest; World Cup soccer player Hope Solo; reality stars Robert Kardashian and Kristin Cavallari; TV personalities Nancy Grace and Ricki Lake; singer-actress Chynna Phillips; actors David Arquette and J.R. Martinez; and Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis, who may be better known in the United States for being George Clooneys ex-girlfriend. Green says the show has no agenda other than entertainment and always seeks to represent a range of people. I think weve had three gay or transgender contestants out of about 120 on the show, so what were really doing is reecting some of the makeup of this vast array of people that make up American society, he said in an interview Thursday. The show remains family friendly, he said, adding that he has young children of his own. Were not going to be dwelling on Chazs sexuality any more than we dwell on anyones sexuality on the show, he said. Were not going to be going into things that are going to make it difcult for you to watch with your children at all. Bono wasnt cast to stir controversy, but because hes a great guy and hes got a really interesting story, Green said. He comes from Hollywood royalty as a family and is familiar to loads of our audience throughout his life. Bono is the only child of Cher and Sonny Bono. Cher has taken to Twitter this week to blast the stupid bigots who she says have viciously attacked her son since the Dancing cast was announced on Monday. She praised his courage for appearing on the show and wrote: bet VAST MAJORITY of People will LOVE CHAZ on DWTS ! The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation praised the net-


DWTSproducer: Give Chaz Bono a chance to dance

By Sandy Cohen

LOS ANGELES Dancing With the Stars executive producer Conrad Green says despite controversy over the casting of its rst transgender contestant, Dancing remains a family show and viewers should check out the new season before passing judgment. Chaz Bono, who was born female but underwent surgery to become a man, is among the cast of 12 celebrities set to appear on the ABC hit when it premieres later this month a decision thats drawn ire from some Dancing fans and conservative media groups. Dan Gainor of the Culture and Media Institute calls Bonos casting a ridiculous, agenda-driven move by Dancing With the Stars. This is the latest example of the

work and Dancing producers for casting Bono. Spokeswoman Sharda Sekaran said that despite some negative response, his appearance on the show may help foster better understanding about transgender people. This community faces a lot of misunderstanding, fear and hatred, and all too often, violence, she said. But these are people just like anybody else, who are part of everyday things as normal as entertaining audiences on a dancing show. Even with the negative reaction, it gives people exposure and access to the story of a real-life transgender person. Bono said on his Twitter page Thursday that he is overwhelmed by the outpouring of support I received from everyone. I dont listen to the haters, but embrace the love, he wrote.

STUDIO SHOP SHOW. The Studio Shop in Burlingame announces GO FIGURE!, a group show presenting the works of figurative painters Carol Aust, Melinda Cootsona and William Rushton and sculptor Fred Yokel. The Studio Shop Art Consultant Julie Venosa said, The four local artists featured in Go Figure bring lively color, texture and interesting gurative subjects in contemplative positions to life. The three painters featured, William Rushton, Melinda Cootsona and Carol Aust, use spontaneous and deliberate brushstrokes to create depth and harmony with gurative subjects. The sculptor featured uses abstraction and texture to create whimsical and at the same time serious pieces, all in ceramic. Fred Yokels natural continuation of line and deliberate disproportion invite the viewer to touch and experience the artwork and absorb all that is has to offer. The public is welcome to the show reception at 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16. 244 Primrose Road Burlingame. For information call 344-1378 or visit *** SCRAPS AND QUILTS. The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles draws on its own holdings as well as private collections and scrappy contemporary works to present Scrap ART, examining the historical precedent and aesthetic of the scrap quilt and its modern-day descendants.

Scrap ART celebrates the reinterpretation of materials by artists both historical and contemporary in works that reect the cultures and values of their makers.

SOUTHWEST POTTERY AND SILVER. The California Academy of Sciences draws on its anthropology collections for Evolving Traditions: Southwest Native Pottery and Silver, highlighting Native American pottery and silver jewelry created by members of the Navajo, Hopi and Zuni tribes and by the Rio Grande Pueblos. Many of the objects are part of the Elkus Collection, a gift from the family of San Franciscans Charles and Ruth Elkus, who collected extensively from the 1920s to the early 1960s. Later works received from other donors are also included. Together, the older and contemporary examples document that certain designs and patterns persist and are carried on by successive generations and also are simultaneously modied as the tradition evolves. A series of video images shows potters and jewelers at work. Among the artists examined are: Maria and Julian Martinez: Potters who are credited with initiating the art market for pottery in the 1920s with their black-onblack pottery from San Ildefonso Pueblo. Lucy Lewis: A potter who revived ancient black & white pottery designs at Acoma Pueblo. Nampeyo: A Hopi-Tewa potter whose work was collected by the Smithsonian as early as the 1890s. Matriarch of 5 succeeding generations of potters. Charles Loloma: A Hopi jeweler who revolutionized native jewelry through innovative designs and use of gold and exotic stones. Kenneth Begay: A Navajo jeweler who set the standard for succeeding generations through his emphasis on precision and simplicity of design. Ambrose Roanhorse: A Navajo jeweler who taught many of the leading Navajo silversmiths in the second quarter of the 20th century.

ABC hopes The Chewcan win over daytime viewers

By Leanne Italie

NEW YORK Gnaw on this: Can some of food and style TVs biggest stars, Mario Batali and Clinton Kelly among them, help ABC soap fans get over cancellation of their favorite stories? The networks counting on it for The Chew. Iron Chef or Martha Stewart this isnt. Nor will the ve co-hosts take on top news of the day like their cousins over at The View once the show premieres live on Sept. 26 in place of All My Children and One Life to Live. What youll see is simple, fun tips for cheap and easy living. During a recent practice run, the ever-adorable Iron Chef Michael Symon salted skirt steak as he shared about his GreekSicilian mother and made it clear: Vinaigrette is two parts fat to one part acid. Kelly, co-host of TLCs What Not to Wear, urged parents to bring their kids back to the dinner table by letting them draw on butcher block paper for placemats. Got some shriveled citrus? Dont let it go to waste. Slice it up and oat it in a vase topped by a cheery hydrangea blossom. If it sounds like stuff the more sophisticated Stewart might have thought up in kindergarten, youre right, but thats OK with Chews executive producer, Gordon Elliott. Hes going for easily digestible, pardon the pun. Besides, the food porns good with lots of delectable close-ups. Elliott explains: People dont have time to sit for an hour and watch a story. ABC came to me and said weve had great success with The View but wed like to get into food. I thought The View, food, The Chew. We do more than just chop and chat. Our co-hosts are relatable.

True, they are. Its also true that people may not sit in the middle of the day. But thats why DVRs were invented, so folk like the soap faithful can relax after dinner with their decades-old shows. Will they be ring them up for The Chew, or tuning out altogether to chase down their soaps online? I really dont believe that disgruntled refugees from All My Children and One Life to Live will swallow The Chew, said TV analyst Shari Anne Brill. This is about how its become more expensive to produce scripted content. The audience has shifted. So, this shifting audience. Is it the same audience already wondering just who the heck Chew co-cost Daphne Oz and design expert Evette Rios even are? Oz wrote the bestselling The Dorm Room Diet and is the daughter of TV doc Mehmet Oz, for the record. She opened up during the Chew runthrough in front of a live audience about her upbringing as a vegetarian. Rios was featured speeding through Ozs tiny New York City kitchen on a taped makeover that included, yes, a pegboard for extra hanging storage. Did you know theres

something called stainless steel paint? In case you cant afford appliances in the real thing. Rounding out the Chew crew is the extremely animated Carla Hall, a Top Chef nalist and perky fan favorite who brings on a neversay-die approach to catastrophe in the kitchen. If the top cracks on your cheesecake, for instance, dont get mad, discouraged, depressed. Cover it up with a world of whip cream and berries. Promos for The Chew have begun airing, already annoying the soap faithful, some of whom took to the sidewalk at ABC Studios in

April to protest when the network canceled their shows. They handed out leaets that declared The Chew and other replacements gloried infomercials appropriate for latenight basic cable channels, not for a major broadcast network. Robin Blum, 61, has been watching All My Children since it went on the air 41 years ago. She has a small business making greeting cards that double as bookmarks. Hence, shes home. AMC got me through two childbirths, a brain tumor, a broken leg, several tropical storms when I lived in the Virgin Islands and 9/11 in New York City, she said. It is not an entertainment form that has outlived its usefulness. Its idiotic that the programmers are now substituting The Chew. How barbaric, for what has essentially become a part of so many peoples lives and has created so many moments of high emotion, tears and laughter, Blum added. Could The Chew stir up that kind of devotion from its audience? Unlikely, said Lisa Morris, the 35-year-old owner of a boutique travel agency in New York. ABC keeps replacing good shows with this crappy, cheap, reality TV, she said. Is paying writers really so much of a sacrice to the networks? Brian Frons, ABCs daytime president, said the bulk of women viewers arent watching soaps.

Burger King introduces oatmeal to breakfast menu

By Sarah Skidmore

For Burger King,oatmeal is part of a larger strategy.Its critical for the chain to nd a convenient new breakfast option.

PORTLAND, Ore. Oatmeal is the new burger. Burger King, the worlds second-largest hamburger chain, added oatmeal to its breakfast menu this week, joining a slew of other chains that have brought the hot cereal out of the cupboard and into restaurants and drivethrus. Burger King says it is trying to offer customers a healthier breakfast option beyond its sausage croissant sandwiches and French toast dipping sticks. Its also an attempt by the struggling chain to catch up to competitors and boost sagging sales by appealing to customers beyond its base of burger-and-fries fans. We are denitely looking to broaden our target and our audience, said Leo Leon, vice bat down the ball when they should be making an interception, but I guess that too much the other way would make the game too frustrating on offense. This years Madden changed the kicking and punting system from the way-too-simple ick back-ick up motion to a golf game style meter in which you click once to start, click again for power and then click for aim. Its slightly more challenging, but a better t. EAs new dynamic player performance does a better job accounting for players gameplay styles in areas such as consistency and condence, which can change week to week depending on performance and lead to hot and cold streaks. Another big addition this year are custom playbooks, which can include up to 400 plays and 50 formations. Madden NFL 12 doesnt offer any new game modes, but the franchise mode has been drastically revamped. yelling, Run, girl, run! with tears streaming down my face. (Thankfully, I was alone in the theater.)

president of global innovation for Burger King Corp. Breakfast is becoming the most important meal of the day for restaurants accounting for nearly 60 percent of trafc growth between 2005 and 2010. And oatmeal is the latest battleground. Its low-cost, easily prepared and doesnt spoil quickly. It also appeals to people who want quick, affordable food they perceive as healthier than the typical fast-food breakfast fare. Starbucks Corp., the worlds biggest coffee chain, said its $2.49 oatmeal has become its most popular breakfast item since it launched in 2008. Last year, McDonalds Corp., the worlds largest burger chain, added $2.99 oatmeal to its menu. Fast food chain Chick-l-A and Dennys casual dining restaurants also offer oatmeal, for $2.49 to 2.85 and 3.49 to 4.49, respectively. Burger Kings oatmeal, at $1.99, is the cheapest of the group. Wannabe general managers can now begin a preseason with a 75-player roster and make cuts before the season opener. A new free agent bidding system allows managers to get into bidding wars for top players in real time, though NFL salary caps still apply. Its fun to create your own team and design its uniforms and stadiums, but the create a team feature is too limited by its small selection of logos. Madden should considering something similar to the NCAA Football 12 TeamBuilder add-on that lets users import their own images. EA Sports again offers us a great game, and with no competition from another brand, a recent Madden should be in everyones video game collection. But whether its worth an annual purchase will depend on the new features youre looking for and your dedication to the franchise.

kicked up from the eld surface are impressive. As a Buccaneers fan, I was excited to hear gunshots from the pirate ship cannon when the Bucs entered the Red Zone so much so that after the next play, I paused and panned the replay camera up to the rafters only to see empty agpoles instead of what should be raised pirate ags. Ridiculously nitpicky? Sure. But when a video game franchise is in its 23rd year of existence, these are the little touches that fans nd themselves looking for each year. With the continued upgrades appealing to the sense of sight, its surprising that the franchise has made such little progress with

sound. Gus Johnson and Cris Collinsworth are back in the booth, and though theres a bit of improvement on last years disjointed playby-play announcing, there are some serious lag-time issues. Touchdown should be declared as the receiver crosses the goal line, not after hes several steps into his celebration. The games player models clearly have been hitting the weight room during the NFL lockout, appearing bulkier than in past editions. And the new collision system takes those weights into account, so larger linebackers likely will get the better of smaller running backs. The hitting animations are greatly improved, but the usual gameplay annoyances are still there. Quarterbacks take too many sacks when they appear to have plenty of time to launch a pass or at least throw the ball away. On defense, corners and linebackers often Rota score swells, and its just a perfect moment.

her favorite of all his lms. But what gets me every time is that famous last shot. Fellinis wife and muse, Giulietta Masina, is irresistible as Cabiria, the proverbial hooker with a heart of gold. Shes funny and feisty but eternally optimistic that shell nd her true love on the streets of Rome. She nally thinks shes found the one, only to discover that hes trying to take advantage of her. Heartbroken, she returns to those same streets and gets caught up in a parade. Then she looks into the camera and smiles through tears as if to let us know shell be all right, and the Nino

Up (2009):
The whole lm is lovely, of course the winner of two Academy Awards, including best animated feature. Its easily one of Pixars best, and thats saying something. But its that one poignant montage that makes the tears come in torrents. It reveals the decadeslong relationship between curmudgeonly, 78year-old Carl Fredricksen and the love of his life, his late wife, Ellie, who brought out the fun he never knew he had inside of him. It lasts just a few minutes without a single word spoken just Michael Giacchinos wistful, Oscar-winning score to accompany the images but its so beautifully detailed and insightful, it tells a full and satisfying story. Dont even bother trying to hold back.

Lassie Come Home (1943):

We had a collie named Bingo when I was growing up, so anything Lassie-related was always appealing. But Lassie Come Home is heartbreaking no matter who you are with its themes of loyalty, struggle and perseverance. Featuring a young Roddy McDowell and Elizabeth Taylor, it tells the story of a destitute family thats forced to sell its beloved dog. But Lassie not only breaks free from her new owners, she treks hundreds of miles through various dangers and rough conditions to return home. Yes, it is manipulative, especially in that moment when young Joe Carraclough sees her again for the rst time, but it works. A faithful 2006 remake had me

My Dog Skip (2000):

Again, anything having to do with a dog is going to turn me into a pile of mush. My Dog Skip also has that irresistible boy-and-his dog dynamic, which exponentially ups the cute factor. A young Frankie Muniz stars as a shy kid named Willie whose only real friend, a scruffy and lovable Jack Russell terrier, helps him open up to the world. Sure, Skip and Willies adventures may seem too contrived in their wackiness, and their bond is unrelentingly and shamelessly heart-tugging. Still, but youd have to be a major cynic not to get choked up, especially by the nal scene.

dressed in vinaigrette or lemon and olive oil or maybe a wedge of crisp iceberg lettuce with vine ripened tomatoes with blue cheese dressing. For the APs 20 Salads of Summer series, Flay offered a chopped salad with asparagus and Meyer lemon dressing from his upcoming cookbook, Bobby Flays Bar Americain Cookbook. I love chopped salads and I have always had a chopped salad on my restaurant menus, he said. I even named one after my daughter Sophie, which I serve at Mesa Grill and it has been a top seller since the day it rst appeared on the menu. So, there was no question that my menu at Bar Americain would include one. The asparagus chopped salad at Bar Americain was created for the appetizer portion of the original menu. I loved the idea of grilling the asparagus instead of blanching it because of the slightly smoky avor it would add to the salad, he said. I wanted contrast of taste and texture, smoky asparagus, sharp aged cheddar cheese, briny olives, creamy chickpeas and crispy bits of fried pita bread. Dressed lightly in the slightly sweet, slightly tart Meyer lemon dressing makes for a whole plate of perfect bites. Kosher salt and ground black pepper 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil For the salad: 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons canola oil 2 pocketless pita breads, halved and sliced 1/4-inch strips Kosher salt and ground black pepper 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed 6 ounces mesclun greens 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved 8 ounces aged white cheddar cheese, cut into 1/2-inch dice 1 English cucumber, cut into 1/2inch dice 1/2 cup pitted and coarsely chopped Kalamata olives 1 cup drained canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained again To make the dressing, in a medium bowl, whisk together the lemon zest and juice, vinegar, mayonnaise, mustard and honey. Season with salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in the oil until emulsied. The dressing can be made 1 day ahead and refrigerated tightly covered. To prepare the salad, in a medium saucepan over medium, heat 2 cups of the canola oil until it reaches 360 F on a deep-fat thermome-

or Bobby Flay, great salads are built from fresh ingredients that arent afraid of a little contrast. Because a salad typically contains more raw ingredients than cooked, you need to begin by using the freshest ingredients that you can nd, the Food Network star said in a recent e-mail interview. Also, using a combination of different ingredients that not only complement one another but provide different tastes and textures is equally important. Contrast of textures is an important part of many of my recipes. Flay is exible as to when he eats his salads. There are times when I want a light lunch or dinner and I order a salad that is more substantial than a mixed green, but less lling than steak frites. That salad should contain lots of mixed greens, crisp vegetables and some kind of protein (could be grilled tuna or shrimp or chicken), he said. Other times, I prefer to order a salad as an appetizer, he said. That salad would be a simple salad of mixed greens lightly

cussed issues as a group at the Daily Journal office Wednesday for an endorsement interview while Moody talked about the same topics via telephone Thursday afternoon. Funded through property taxes, Sequoia has made tough cuts but remained pretty resilient in recent years. This years budget came with about $5 million in cuts yet did not eliminate the decit, which means tough decisions are ahead. The budget assumes $5.7 million in additional cuts in the following two years. Getting through difcult nancial times came with different ideas from the candidates. Martinez was at a loss. The district and board saved for years in case such a nancial hit occurred. It was that decision, she pointed out, that is allowing them to now slowly decide how to live within nancial restraints. Ultimately, Martinez said the district is constantly looking at multiple budget plans and hoping for the best. Du Bois saw it as an opportunity to change the fundraising models. MenloAthertons foundation, she pointed out, was quite successful. Its practices could be used at the other schools. Rumley said partnerships both with businesses and other public agencies are one way to continue to meet needs no longer supported by current funding. The Teen Wellness Center on the Sequoia High campus, for example, is a way to offer condential health services to all local teens and is funded through a variety of groups. Both Moody and Weiner agreed that all possible partnerships should be pursued. Weiner saw the boards role in nancial decisions as setting priorities rather than dealing with the nitty gritty. While he was sympathetic to the goal of keeping cuts from the classroom, more than 80 percent of the districts funds are spent on salaries. Not touching those while looking at such large cuts, he said, could be unavoidable. Less revenue can sometimes make it difcult to offer special programs that help struggling students. Like most districts, Sequoia struggles with an ethnic achievement gap among students. Those running described standardized tests as a great way to get a snapshot of a students comprehension. However, candidates struggled to identify what else could be done to close that academic divide. Sequoia provides a variety of programs for students already like tutoring and parent training, said Martinez. While Martinez acknowledged addressing the problem will always be a priority, she also felt a disparity of some kind would always remain. Du Bois wanted to see parent education expanded so learning at home would have more support. Rumley added truancy has become an issue on which the district has begun to work. They cant learn if theyre not here, she said. Weiner simply explained its a problem that would be solved if educators

knew how to resolve it. Given the budget restraints, he proposed to focus on a handful of successful programs that can be expanded rather than offering such a wide variety. Moody saw the achievement gap as also being a communication issue. From East Palo Alto, Moody expressed a lack of outreach to the Ravenswood City Elementary District. He wanted to see more of an effort and mentioned previously bringing the two districts and city ofcials together for meetings as a way to start the conversation. Du Bois agreed. A Carlmont parent, she spoke about transitioning students from Ravenswood to the four comprehensive sites. She noticed a lack of local representation in those efforts over the past year and began working to rectify that. Part of the problem Du Bois saw was about notication. Many of the families did not have access to email and werent getting mailers. Moody additionally wanted meetings to be televised and possibly push back the 5:30 p.m. start time to allow more working families to attend. Rumley and Martinez both pointed to changes in recent years to aid in communication but recognized there is always more that can be done. When comparing schools within the district, Sequoia offers a variety of said, would not have to drive to the physical jail. For now, though, the reduction is not about technology but finances. The Sheriffs Ofce is also ending child-care services on Wednesday because the lack of public visiting means there is no need. The new limit comes as jail ofcials continue wrestling with overcrowding and preparing for realignment which will shift a number of state prisoners into local facilities. The anticipated population surge up to 400 inmates are anticipated for each of the next three years by the county although the state estimates 241 is another factor behind the closure decision. More inmates and reduced personnel in an already crowded facility stretches its resources thinner. The jail is rated for

options. It is also the chartering agency to four charter schools a topic that was sometimes controversial in the district. Most of the candidates were supportive of the additional choices when its meeting a community need. There were some issues with the California education code on the topic, but the district trustees would not have any control over that. For Moody it was simple he will support whatever program is best meeting the communitys needs. 688 people but often runs upward of 1,000. On top of trimming visiting hours, Munks expects to ask the Board of Supervisors to reopen the La Honda honor camp by either the end of this scal year or the beginning of next. The trigger will be an increase in population, based in large part on the inmates shifted under realignment. Munks may also look at renting beds in other counties. Munks and a jail planning team are currently at work on designing a new, larger facility near the existing womens jail on Maple Street but completion is optimistically projected for 2014. More information on jail visiting hours and rules are available at

Continued from page 1
The inmates have been notied and the signs are currently being switched, Munks said. The schedule reduction is a rst for San Mateo County, said Munks. Eventually, Munks would like to move toward video visiting in which connections are made with inmates from satellite locations such as a new correctional facility on Maple Street or even sites in Daly City and the coast. Redwood City ofcials and residents would appreciate the lack of loiterers and litter that can come with visiting hours and visitors, he

NOTICE OF Intent to Adopt a Draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration for the ExteNet State Route 35 Distributed Antenna System Project in San Mateo County, California The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) prepared a Draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (Draft IS/MND), under the California Environmental Quality Act, to evaluate the ExteNet Systems (California), LLC application to construct a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) along a portion of State Route 35 (SR 35) in San Mateo County, California. The Draft IS/MND presents details the proposed project, evaluates and describes its potential environmental impacts, identifies those impacts that could be significant, and defines mitigation measures to avoid or minimize these impacts. Project Summary. The project includes installation of fiber optic cable and related node facilities (collectively known as a DAS) along a portion of SR 35. Construction would involve installing 17 new wooden utility poles, approximately 12.5 miles of overhead cable, approximately 1,100 feet of underground cable, and related antenna and node facilities. The project would be constructed in four phases over a period of approximately 11 weeks. The telecommunications line and antennas would provide telephone and internet services along the SR 35 corridor in San Mateo County, California. Project Location. The proposed project is located predominantly within the right-of-way of SR 35, with portions located within the rights-of-way of other County roadways and utility corridors. The project route begins at the intersection of SR 35 and SR 84 and travels north along the SR 35 right-of-way for approximately 12.5 miles. Public and Agency Comments. The Draft IS/MND is being circulated for a 30-day review period.
