Redwood City resident Greg Matonis started making his own salsa in 1990 because it was cheaper for him than buying it at the store. It’s cheaper for him to make his own salsa because he is not just having a little chips and salsa before dinner. “I could eat a whole pint with breakfast,” he said. When asked what he eats his salsa with, he said, “A spoon will do.” Over the years, Matonis has stuck

to the same recipe, perfecting his ratio of ingredients. “My recipe is pretty simple, but it’s still a secret,” he said. He doesn’t grow his own tomatoes, but he uses fresh ingredients. His recipe is about 50 percent peppers. The people who can get past the heat of the peppers enjoy the flavor from them, he said. “A lot of people can’t get past the heat,” he said. “People have asked me to branch off into mild and I say no.”

Superintendent pays political fine
San Bruno official failed to report wife’s source of income to FPPC
By Bill Silverfarb


Nurses in red union shirts carried signs and chanted slogans outside Mills-Peninsula Medical Center in Burlingame as well as dozens of Northern and Central California hospitals on Thursday as part of a one-day strike over benefit cuts and other concessions sought by hospital management.

The superintendent of the San Bruno Park Elementary School District was fined by the California Fair Political Practices Commission yesterday for failing to disclose his wife’s source of income. David Hutt was fined $800 for failing to disclose that his wife Suzette worked for a David Hutt company that provided daycare for the district from 2005 through 2008. He was fined $200 for each year he failed to show that his wife worked for Knowledge Learning Corporation, a private company that provides daycare for the district on a contract basis, Hutt told the Daily Journal yesterday. Hutt was required to show his wife’s income on California Form 700 Statements of Economic Interests. He did disclose the detail in 2002, 2003 and 2004 but told

No Child Left Behind to have barriers removed
Obama rolls back Bush-era education law
By Kimberly Hefling and Darlene Superville

The brand-new Mills-Peninsula Medical Center, with its hotel-like atrium and sparkling facade, is indicative of how parent Sutter Health treats its workers, according to two intensive care nurses. “It’s focus is on image not functionality,” said Genel Morgan, an intensive care unit charge nurse. Fellow nurse Sharon Tobin said management didn’t listen to the nurses for input on how to make the hospital user-friendly, much like the nurses protesting yesterday said their contract

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is offering states a way around provisions of the once-heralded No Child Left Behind law, contending many elements of the Bush-era education initiative have become barriers to learning and that Barack Obama too many schools, even those showing modest progress, risk being labeled as failing.

Thought for the Day
“Trust your own instinct. Your mistakes might as well be your own,instead of someone else’s.”
— Billy Wilder,Austro-Hungarian-born American movie director (1906-2002)

This Day in History


Sen. Richard M. Nixon, R-Calif., salvaged his vice-presidential nomination by delivering the “Checkers” speech, in which he defended himself against allegations of improper campaign fundraising.

In 1779, during the Revolutionary War, the American warship Bon Homme Richard, commanded by John Paul Jones, defeated the HMS Serapis in battle. In 1780, British spy John Andre was captured along with papers revealing Benedict Arnold’s plot to surrender West Point to the British. In 1806, the Lewis and Clark expedition returned to St. Louis more than two years after setting out for the Pacific Northwest. In 1846, Neptune was identified as a planet by German astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle. In 1908, an apparent baserunning error by Fred Merkle of the New York Giants cost his team a victory against the Chicago Cubs and left the game tied 1-1. (The Cubs won a rematch and with it, the National League pennant.) In 1939, Sigmund Freud (froyd), the founder of psychoanalysis, died in London at age 83. In 1957, nine black students who’d entered Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas were forced to withdraw because of a white mob outside. In 1962, New York’s Philharmonic Hall (later renamed Avery Fisher Hall) formally opened as the first unit of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. In 1973, former Argentine president Juan Peron won a landslide election victory that returned him to power; his wife, Isabel, was elected vice president. In 1981, the Reagan administration announced plans for what became known as “Radio Marti.” Ten years ago: President George W. Bush returned the American flag to full staff at Camp David, symbolically ending a period of national mourning.

Raw-chicken vandalism leads to conviction
DENVER — A Denver man convicted of placing raw chicken in his ex-wife’s heating ducts and other acts of vandalism could face up to 18 years in prison. KDVR-TV reports that 58-year-old Ronald Smith also poured an unknown substance into a baby grand piano and erased a hard drive on his ex-wife’s computer. Authorities say the vandalism caused thousands of dollars of damage.

Spears kicks off a string of European tour dates Thursday in St. Petersburg, but is not scheduled to play on the birthday itself.

Downed plane reported in Ohio just water park prop
MASON, Ohio — A possible plane crash reported near an Ohio interstate turned out to be only a prop on the grounds of a water park. Media outlets report a passing motorist on Interstate 71 north of Cincinnati thought it was a downed plane and alerted authorities late Wednesday morning. Fire and emergency crews were dispatched to the scene. Spokesman Derek Blevins at The Beach water park in Mason tells WHIO radio the decorative prop has been on the property since May and was never an issue before. But he says it may be more visible from the interstate because falling leaves have reduced the amount of tree cover.

mately $125 million general fund with an entire budget roughly double that. The board agreed to use $8 million in reserves to soften the budgetary blow but projections show cuts of $5.8 million in 2012-13. The board is also assuming it will use reserves in the next two fiscal years without any more cuts or additions in the three years. “Really, all we did was approve the framework that was already discussed,” said board Trustee Dave Mandelkern. Mandelkern said the district is very lucky to have reserves as a fallback. “This is the proverbial rainy day,” Mandelkern said. Much now hinges on the governor’s budget to be released in January and whether socalled trigger cuts stand to take even more funds from the community college system. Holober said he doesn’t want everybody to live in a perpetual state of depression and pessimism but that there’s little chance of improvement unless the economy grow sunnier. Mandelkern, too, said the goal is not “to get people worked up unnecessarily” until the cuts are a reality instead of a possibility. The situation would be more bleak if voters had not passed Measure G, which generates approximately $5 million to $6 million annually. The district is also still recuperating from a $150 million when the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy leeched money from the San Mateo County Investment Pool.

Dirty fight
Two sisters living together were in a dispute regarding house cleaning issues on the 200 block of Anita Road in Burlingame before 3:05 a.m. Friday, Sept. 16.

The San Mateo County Community College District is getting a slight budgetary reprieve this year from the board’s use of millions of dollars in reserves but the situation could grow more dire with future cuts, said board President Richard Holober. The board Wednesday night discussed and adopted its budget and while Holober said there was little drama in the action the same may not hold true if the state imposes trigger cuts and the economy doesn’t improve. The budget assumes a 7.5 percent workload reduction and fees staying at $36 until next summer. The district’s budget includes an approxi-

A 77-year-old San Carlos man died yesterday after being hit by a car while he was crossing Alameda de las Pulgas at the intersection of Carmelita Drive in San Carlos last week, according to police. At approximately 10:53 a.m., Sept. 14, Frederick Grote was lawfully crossing the street westbound when he was struck by a 1995 Toyota Camry driven by an 84-year-old

man from Belmont south on Alameda de las Pulgas from San Carlos Avenue, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office was told by the coroner Grote died from his injuries yesterday. Sheriff’s officials say the driver was believed to be driving below the speed limit and did not brake before hitting Grote. The driver told police he did not see Grote before hitting him, according to the Sheriff’s Office. The investigation also revealed the driver

had approximately 200 feet of unobstructed view of the intersection prior to impact. There is no evidence of distracted driving such as cell phone usage and no evidence of intoxication, according to the Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office has directed the Department of Motor Vehicles to conduct a reexam on the driver to assess his driving capabilities and will be forwarding the investigation to the district attorney for review to determine if criminal charges should be filed.

Student protesters occupy UC Berkeley building

BERKELEY — Dozens of student protesters have occupied a building on the University of California, Berkeley campus. Demonstrators upset about tuition hikes and state budget cuts held a noon rally on Sproul Plaza Thursday before entering Tolman Hall,

where ground-floor classrooms are closed because of seismic safety concerns. UC Berkeley spokeswoman Janet Gilmore said that campus police are monitoring the protest but have not decided what to do if the demonstrators remain in the building. In an entry on the online blog

reclaimuc.blogspot.com, protesters say they are “opening up a university building to be used as an organizing and educational space.” Protesters say the University of California is becoming increasingly unaffordable as the 10campus UC system raises tuition in response to state cuts to higher education.

Burglary. A homeowner’s cleaner reported seeing a ladder propped up against the house, on the 1500 block of Cypress Avenue before 1:53 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16.

New group to manage Maverick’s

HALF MOON BAY — After years of changing management, the Maverick’s big wave surfing contest will now be led by the man who made the treacherous break famous in the first place. On Wednesday San Mateo County officials granted a permit for the event to Maverick’s International, Inc. led by Jeff

Clark, the first person known to have surfed the spot, and pro surfer Ken Collins. Each year, when a large swell is forecast, 24 of the world’s most daring big wave surfers get a day’s notice to fly to the Half Moon Bay area to compete. This year, spectators will be banned from the beach and bluffs in the area, after rogue waves in 2010 injured more than a dozen. There was no contest in 2011.

GOP lawmaker: Solar industry could fail
WASHINGTON — A Republican House chairman blasted the solar industry Thursday, calling loans to solar panel manufacturers, such as ill-fated Solyndra Inc., a poor bet and predicting the solar panel industry itself could collapse in the United States. An industry group immediately disputed the remark by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., citing a report showing that solar panel installations were up nearly 70 percent in the second quarter of 2011, compared with the same period last year. Issa, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said the $528 million loan to the now-bankrupt California solar energy company is just one example of the Obama administration’s failed attempt to create green jobs. Citing competition from China and other problems, Issa told reporters after

“A green jobs-fueled recovery is a theory,and is yet unproven....There is a lot more green,in the way of cash,and a lot less energy and jobs than anticipated.”

the hearing: “It is reasonable to predict that we could have the collapse of the entire solar panel manufacturing business in America.” More than 100,000 Americans are employed in solar — twice as many as in 2009 — making it the fastest-growing industry in America, said Rhone Resch, president of the Solar Energy Industries Association, an industry group. The industry includes more than 5,000 companies in all 50 states, Resch said. The Obama administration said the solar industry and renewable energy in general were crucial to economic growth and job creation. The debate over solar came as Issa’s committee released a report titled,

“How Obama’s Green Energy Agenda is Killing Jobs.” The report criticizes what it calls questionable accounting methods used by the Obama administration to count “green jobs” and says the term is vague and poorly defined. “A green jobs-fueled recovery is a theory, and is yet unproven,” Issa said. “There is a lot more green, in the way of cash, and a lot less energy and jobs than anticipated.” Democrats assailed the report, saying Issa had offered no evidence that the Obama administration was killing jobs. Rep. Gerald Connolly, D-Va., called the report intellectually dishonest and said its title showed Issa’s “raw, partisan” agenda.

Romney,Perry go after each other
By Philip Elliott

Judge:July trial for gas blast lawsuits

ORLANDO, Fla. — Side by side in confrontational debate, Republican presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney and Rick Perry sarcastically accused each other Thursday night of flip-flopping on Social Security and health care, flashpoints in their intense struggle for the party nomination. In a debate that focused on character and credibility as much as other issues, Perry insisted he had backed off “not one inch, Sir” from what he had written in a campaign-season book published a few months ago. Romney vouched for his own steadfastness moments later. “There are a lot of reasons not to elect me,” he said. “There are a lot of reasons not to elect other people on this stage. ... But one reason to elect me is I know what I stand for. I’ve written it down. Words have meaning.” The two men assailed one another in the third debate in as many weeks in a race for the Republican presidential nomination growing testier by the day. Perry runs ahead in national opinion polls, with Romney a close second, and they compete daily for endorsements from members of Congress and other party luminaries in hopes of gaining a permanent edge before the caucuses and primaries begin early next year. The other contenders on the stage struggled at times to gain the debate spotlight, even as they struggle to gain traction in the polls. The GOP presidential hopefuls all agreed quickly on one point — that President Barack Obama’s handling of the economy was woeful. They said they would cut taxes, eliminate government regulations and take other steps to help create jobs in a nation with 9.1 percent unemployment. Yet the two-hour event was marked by clashes over Social Security, health care, immigration, gun rights and more. Romney accused Perry of having said the

federal government “shouldn’t be in the pension business, that it’s unconstitutional,” a reference to Social Security benefits. Noting his rival’s denials, Romney mocked him. “You better find that Rick Perry and get him to stop saying that,” he said. Perry soon returned the favor, saying that Romney switched his position on health care between editions of a book he had published. In one edition, Perry said, Romney advocated expanding to the rest of the country the health care program he signed in Massachusetts. “Then in your paperback you took that line out, so speaking of not getting it straight in your book, Sir.” “It’s like badminton,” said Perry. The Massachusetts legislation required residents of the state to purchase health coverage or pay a fine, a cornerstone of the law that Obama won from Congress last year that has inflamed conservative voters across the country. Perry also accused Romney of flip-flopping his views on the rights of gun owners. In fact, both Perry and Romney have sought to blur if not rewrite portions of their own records as they vie for the nomination. In Romney’s case, that has meant trying to win support from conservative voters despite the moderate positions he held on social issues while he was governor of Massachusetts.

A San Mateo County Superior Court judge Thursday set a trial date for lawsuits filed by victims of the San Bruno pipeline disaster to proceed against PG&E. Judge Steven Dylina said that the group of 95 cases representing more than 300 plaintiffs should be ready to go to trial on July 2, 2012. In his ruling, Dylina said the victims of the Sept. 9, 2010 explosion, which killed eight people and injured dozens more, were forefront in his mind as he sought to maneuver the “very complex” group of cases through the court system toward a trial next year. “I realize the gravity of the importance of this case for the people of San Bruno,” Dylina said. In a draft report on the disaster issued last month by the National Transportation Safety Board, investigators found that PG&E installed a flawed section of pipe in the Crestmoor Canyon neighborhood in 1956, and that the utility’s lax record keeping and inspections practices failed to detect the problem until the line exploded last year. Dylina presented a roadmap for how the dozens of lawsuits filed against PG&E in the wake of the disaster could be heard most efficiently as a group while addressing the particular needs of each individual claim. Dylina suggested that lawyers for PG&E and the plaintiffs divide the claims into eight different categories: wrongful death; serious bodily injury requiring treatment or hospitalization; minor bodily injuries and property loss; minor bodily injuries with no property loss; those who were present at the time of the explosion and lost property; those who were present at the time of the explosion and did not lose property; those who were not present at the time of the explosion and lost property; and those who were not present at the time of the explosion and lost little or no property.

in the back because he thought the acquaintance had slept with his wife and later hiding from South San Francisco police under a pile of towels will stand trial early next year on attempted murder and weapons charges. Jairo Ulises Ramos, 40, pleaded not guilty to the counts and was scheduled for a Feb. 6 jury trial. According to prosecutors, Ramos, of San Francisco, thought his wife was involved with the South San Francisco man and confronted him while the couple was at his apartment. Ramos allegedly threw a milk container on the kitchen floor while announcing his suspicions and grabbed a knife. He reportedly struck the man with the knife once in the back and multiple times on the hand. The victim pushed Ramos away and fled the apartment to call authorities. Police reported finding Ramos at the apartment, hiding in the bathtub under some towels. Ramos remains in custody without bail.


Alleged child lurer held to answer
The San Jose executive facing criminal and civil charges he lured a Canadian teen to a Burlingame home for sexual activity is heading straight to trial after waiving a preliminary hearing. Scott Del M a r s h a l l McKibbin, 40, is Scott charged with McKibbin felony communicating with a minor to commit a lewd act and arranging a meeting with a minor for a lewd act. He is also charged with a misdemeanor count of arranging a meeting with a minor for an inappropriate purpose. McKibbin returns to court Oct. 6 to enter a Superior Court plea and set a trial date. McKibbin is the former director of global distribution for the semiconductor company Maxim Integrated Products and a registered sex offender. Prosecutors say in October he convinced the 16-year-old he met online to fly from Vancouver to San Francisco International Airport and took him to a hotel. He was apprehended by Burlingame police and FBI agents when he brought the boy back to the airport to change his flight reservation. The boy’s parents had contacted authorities once they discovered him missing. In May, the boy and his family sued McKibbin in Santa Clara County Superior Court for negligence, assault and battery, emotional distress and sexual battery. In 1999, McKibbin was convicted of oral copulation on a minor in Santa Cruz County. McKibbin is free from custody on $50,000 bail.

Public invited to view voting system testing
The public is invited to observe the Election’s Office test the logic and accuracy of its eSlate voting system equipment over the course of four days in advance of the Nov. 8 election. The tests, which begin Monday, are performed before every election to ensure the counting software is working properly. The tests known as “L&A” are only performed on machines configured as test units but, in a separate process, every machine will undergo functional testing. This process confirms each machine is loaded with the correct system software and firmware, as certified by the secretary of state, and that every dial, button, connector and other hardware component is operating properly. Testing begins at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 26 at the Elections Office, 40 Tower Road, San Mateo.

Family says beaten Giants fan is speaking again
SAN FRANCISCO — Family members of a San Francisco Giants fan who was brutally beaten outside Dodger Stadium said he is speaking and more responsive than ever since his attack nearly six months ago. The family of Bryan Stow posted the update Wednesday on its website, saying his latest improvements came a week after he received a shunt to relieve pressure on his brain. During a speech therapy session, Stow was able to say his full name and the names of his daughter and son. “We are blown away with all of this,” the family said. “Literally one day we got some facial responses and the next, he’s talking. His voice is gravelly and you have to be close to hear him, but he is talking. Right now, Bryan is more awake and more responsive then (sic) ever.”

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is marketing his massive jobs proposal from an outdated bridge that links the home states of his two chief congressional Republican rivals, a symbolic and cheeky maneuver designed to apply pressure on the GOP and convey resolve in the face of a sputtering economy. Obama was making his pitch Thursday for $447 billion in tax cuts, jobless aid and public works projects at the Brent Spence Bridge south of Cincinnati, an aging span that connects House Speaker John Boehner’s state of Ohio with Kentucky, home of Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell. The politics are clear.

“The point here is that it’s not an accident that we’re headed to that area,” said White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer. Strategically, the visit serves Obama’s legislative and political goals. The president is making his jobs bill the focus of his fall agenda amid broad public disapproval over his handling of the economy. The trip also raises Obama’s profile in Ohio, a state that he won in 2008 but that George W. Bush also won twice. McConnell and Boehner, both of whom have supported the bridge project, dismissed the visit as a ploy. “I would suggest, Mr. President, that you think about ways to actually help the people of Kentucky and Ohio, instead of how you can use their roads and bridges as a backdrop for making a political point,”

McConnell said on the Senate floor Thursday morning. “If you really want to help our state then come back to Washington and work with Republicans on legislation that will actually do something to revive our economy and create jobs. And forget the political theater.” Added Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck, “We want to work with the president to support job creation, but political stunts and empty promises bring us no closer to finding common ground.” Public opinion polls show only about 1 in 4 people approves of Obama’s economic performance. The president is seeking to put his differences with Republicans into sharper focus and to shift to his political rivals some of the responsibility for the nation’s high unemployment and feeble growth rate.

State pension managers fined for gifts
By Don Thompson

February attempted murder trial set
A man accused of stabbing a friend

SACRAMENTO — California’s political watchdog agency fined 16 executives and investment managers of the nation’s largest public pension fund on Thursday for failing to report gifts that included food, wine and baseball and Rose Bowl tickets. The largest fine was $3,600 against Shaun Greenwood, a portfolio manager for the California Public Employees Retirement System. He failed to report $2,700

worth of clothing, alcohol, meals and event tickets. Gifts came primarily from the fund’s investment partners, including Goldman Sachs, UBS, Credit Suisse, the Carlyle Group and LP Capital Advisors. The fines are the latest spinoff from a wider influence-peddling investigation that brought a lawsuit by the attorney general’s office last year alleging fraud and kickbacks. The larger investigation involved middlemen known as placement agents who were paid more than $180 million by their clients to

lobby for investment business from CalPERS. The ethics investigation led to a review of gifts received by pension fund employees and board members dating to 2006. The 16 fines are agreements between the commission’s investigators and the employees. The fines include $400 for CalPERS board president Rob Feckner, who failed to report five meals worth a total of $277 in 2007 and 2008. Board member Louis Moret was fined $400 for accepting two meals worth $217 in 2008.

Abbas stands to gain from U.N.gambit
By Karin Laub

RAMALLAH, West Bank — The drama over the Palestinians’ bid for U.N. recognition is still unfolding, but President Mahmoud Abbas appears to have won new respect at home for standing up to the United States and moving their decadeslong quest for statehood back to the center of the world stage. Recognition of Palestine — even in a possible watered-down form, since full U.N. membership is blocked by a certain U.S. veto — won’t bring the Palestinians true independence anytime soon. It might not even be enough to improve their hoped-for leverage in future border talks with Israel. But despite such uncertainties and the risk of a serious rift with Washington, Abbas and his aides say they had to try to break the diplomatic impasse of recent years with a bold move. Abbas was losing domestic credibility — as well as political ground against militant rival Hamas — by sticking to the old formula of U.S.brokered negotiations with Israel. Israelis and Palestinians tend to blame the other side for the failure to reach a deal. Despite several farreaching efforts, gaps could ultimately not be bridged, and Israel’s military occupation of the West


Lebanese and Palestinian people march in Beirut in support of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’bid for statehood recognition in the United Nations.
Bank continues. And the Arab Spring — a wave of anti-government protests sweeping the region since the start of the year — has made it more difficult for the Palestinian leadership to appear to accept the status quo. “In the revolutionary atmosphere of the region, when the Palestinian leadership is unable to deliver anything, they have to be worried about their public standing,” said Ghassan Khatib, spokesman for Abbas’ West Bank-based Palestinian Authority. “With this approach (of seeking

U.N. recognition), I think it will a little bit defuse public pressure.” A poll published this week yielded stunning support for Abbas’ gambit, suggesting he had tapped into a hunger for taking a stand. The poll of 1,200 Palestinians indicated that more than 80 percent support the bid to win U.N. recognition for a Palestinian state encompassing the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, areas Israel captured in 1967. That backing comes despite widespread expectations of greater hardships as a result, including a possible cut in U.S. aid. Last week’s survey by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research, with an error margin of 3 percentage points, also cited a five-point increase, to 59 percent, in Abbas’ popularity in the past three months. Abbas — who never enjoyed the crowd appeal of his late predecessor, Yasser Arafat — might now also be better able to deflect claims by Hamas militants that he has been serving the interests of the West at the expense of Palestinian aspirations. Such charges might have stuck more easily had Abbas not held his stance. Palestinians seem angry and even surprised at the support by President Barack Obama’s administration for Israel at the United Nations.

Old NASA satellite to tumble to Earth today
By Alicai Chang

LOS ANGELES — While North America appears to be off the hook, scientists are scrambling to pinpoint exactly where and when a dead NASA climate satellite will plummet back to Earth on Friday. The 6-ton, bus-sized satellite is expected to break into more than a hundred pieces as it plunges through the atmosphere, most of it burning up. But if you’re hoping for a glimpse, the odds are slim. Most sightings occur by chance because the re-entry path can’t be predicted

early enough to alert people, said Canadian Ted Molczan, who tracks satellites for a hobby. In all his years of monitoring, Molczan has only witnessed one tumble back to Earth — the 2004 return of a Russian communications satellite. It “looked like a brilliant star with a long glowing tail,” he said in an email. The best guess so far is that the 20-year-old Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite will hit sometime on Friday afternoon Eastern time. The latest calculations indicate that it will not be over the United States, Canada and

Mexico during that time. Until Thursday, every continent but Antarctic was a potential target. Predicting where and when the freefalling satellite will land is an imprecise science, but officials should be able to narrow it down a few hours ahead. While most of the satellite pieces will disintegrate, 26 large metal chunks — the largest about 300 pounds — are expected to survive, hit and scatter somewhere on the planet. With nearly three-quarters of the world covered in water, chances are that it will be a splashdown. If the re-entry is visible, “it’ll look like a long-lived meteor,” said

Jonathan McDowell of the HarvardSmithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Mass. Since the dawn of the Space Age, no one has been injured by falling space debris. The only confirmed case of a person being hit by space junk was in 1997 when Lottie Williams of Tulsa, Okla., was grazed in the shoulder by a small bit of debris from a discarded piece of a Delta rocket. The odds of someone somewhere on Earth getting struck by the NASA satellite are 1 in 3,200. But any one person’s odds are astronomically lower — 1 in 21 trillion. “You’re way more likely to be hit

by lightning” than by the satellite, McDowell said. NASA has warned people not to touch any satellite part they might chance upon. There are no hazardous chemicals on board, but people can get hurt by sharp edges, the space agency said. The U.S. tracks the roughly 22,000 pieces of satellites, rockets and other junk orbiting the Earth. Nowadays, the world is more ecoconscious about what it puts up in space. Modern satellites must be designed to disintegrate upon reentry or have enough fuel to be nudged into a higher orbit or steered into the ocean.

Cook for Belmont city clerk
aces for city clerk are seldom compelling, or even contested, as the job is largely administrative with three components — serving the public with documents and assisting city staff and the City Council. However, the city of Belmont is known for its unique personalities and sometimes politically charged atmosphere. That may be in play in this particular race pitting the incumbent, Terri Cook, against current Vice Mayor Dave Warden, who is willing to give up his seat on the council to take the position. Politics aside, the race should be considered in the context of the job itself. Cook has served as Belmont city clerk for nearly a decade. We haven’t heard any official complaints about her in the job though she is known to be prickly at times. She points to her experience serving the city over the years on the Planning Commission and City Council, including serving as mayor. She contends she is independent and emphasizes the importance of keeping the job as an elected position to maintain that independence. Warden wants to make drastic changes to the office — making it a part-time equivalent position and shuffling the administrative tasks to other city employees while promising not to take the job’s roughly $95,000 annual salary and instead taking an amount closer to $6,000 a year. That would be the

equivalent of what members of the City Council make in their part-time role. He also wants to move toward a more paperless office and use his experience in management and technology as a medical software developer to streamline the tasks of the office. Cook said she has already begun the task of transforming the office to a paperless one and to provide for efficiencies. Those efforts accelerated in the past few months as this election approached. Warden has provided some bright ideas and food for thought. Some of them could be introduced and discussed at the council level as a way to improve the efficiency of the entire city. In his time on the council, Warden has proven to be bold with his ideas and able to reach consensus in bringing them into action. Perhaps he should think about broadening his goals for the clerk’s office to other areas of the city’s administration. His concept of making the position parttime, with a lower salary, is one that should be decided by the voters though any official has the liberty to do what they will with their salary. Many cities have successfully moved toward having the city clerk be an appointed position. Perhaps the voters should decide

that too, or conclude it should remain elected with lower pay or stay exactly as it is now. The council can place such a measure on the ballot. Or a citizen group can be formed with the same intent. Either would be a more appropriate path. Warden is a key member of the City Council and is best suited for enacting change in his current position which would save the city the task of determining how he would be replaced — whether through an appointment or a special election that could cost the city money. Cook has proven to be a solid and independent city clerk, who deserves a chance to continue making changes to the office in a way that makes sense to the city and its citizens.

Letters to the editor
Waiting for miracles?
Editor, For my next miracle, I baptize thee — Job Creator! And there we have the latest move to change the conversation from taxing the wellto-do more appropriately. The Republican brand pulls at our heartstrings by calling those lucky ones indispensable “Job Creators.” Somehow the workaday folks who want to add an addition to their home, or get a new car or pay for their kids’ education don’t create a demand that moves the economy. For our Republican friends, it’s the rich who are the movers and shakers. We are all guilty of wanting a free lunch but when the bills are finally due and money must be found, we are told not to be hard on the well-to-do. The fact that our corporations are sitting on mounds of cash, just waiting for demand to pick up, somehow escapes the discussion. Yet tax cuts to enable them to enlarge their stash even more is somehow a better idea than actually putting folks to work on government projects that need doing. Well maybe it’s the Republicans who are into miracles and magic, or just snake oil? ment is not a sacred thing and is always open to discussion with what would benefit the region and the case of fair peace ... and we could make a change if needed.” I wonder how he’d feel if Israel decided that, since Egypt willfully breached a material term of the peace agreement by stopping promised gas deliveries paid for by Israel, the situation is no longer fair for it and should therefore be allowed to retake the Sinai oil fields to ensure a secure energy supply. After all, the parties bargained for this at Camp David. Apparently fairness means different things to different people. sold to the American public and the rest of the so-called “free world” by the United States and NATO as making progress in “the war on terrorism.” Shameful!

hrough the last few years, Americans have developed a hardened attitude about bailouts. Now it is likely taxpayers will be on the hook for at least one more big one: The United States Postal Service is telling Congress it may have to end delivery by August of next year unless something is done about its expenses. Like most bailouts, this one comes with a stark choice: Make the bailout or suffer a major economic loss. Congress will likely help the Postal Service, but it should do so by reforming the way the agency does business. Granted, some of the Postal Service mess has little to do with policies of Congress or the agency itself. The Great Recession and the housing market collapse hit the postal industry hard. With business and credit offerings down, businesses stopped mailing as many solicitations. President Barack Obama has suggested delaying the $5.5 billion payment for 90 days beyond the Sept. 30 deadline, but Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe says the gesture won’t help. The Postal Service usually only has one week’s worth of cash, and it is approaching its $15 billion borrowing limit. ... Despite much criticism aimed at Postal Service efficiency, U.S. Mail delivery remains a popular service. The nation obviously still needs a postal system. But times have changed, and Congress and the Postal Service must adapt to the changes.

Air show over the city of San Francisco
Editor, Recently, we read about the terrible crash of an airplane at the Reno Air show (“Plane crash at air show kills three, injures many” published in the Sept. 17 edition of the Daily Journal). An even bigger show is planned by the Blue Angels over the city of San Francisco on Oct. 8 and Oct. 9. This is the biggest recruiting effort of the Pentagon. The show is very successful in getting young people to join the army, but at what cost to the people in San Francisco? The jet fighter planes do spectacular high-speed swirls and loops around high rise buildings and Coit Tower, but at what risk? One small error, a pilot a second off his pattern, could cause a spectacular crash in a densely populated area. I do not know how we can control the military, but calling the city attorney, Jackie Speier, Dianne Feinstein or Barbara Boxer might help protect the people in San Francisco.

The United States and other NATO nations are seeking to establish a beachhead in Libya that can be used to derail the mass revolts that have taken place throughout the region and to restore the status quo. There have been more than 20,000 by U.S./NATO warplanes against the forces of the Libyan dictator, Col. Moammar Gadhafi.

he makers of high-fructose corn syrup would understandably like to change the image of their product, which has gained a reputation as the trans fat of the sugar world. In fact, as sales sink, they’d prefer a name change altogether — to corn sugar — and have asked the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for permission to use it on food labels. The liquid sweetener is a natural food, a Corn Refiners Assn. advertising campaign claims, and nutritionally the same as any other sugar. The makers of table sugar — the granulated or powdered substance made from beets and sugar cane — will be in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles in an effort to stifle that campaign, but they’re making too much of minor differences. True, high-fructose corn syrup requires more processing than the familiar table sugar, using enzymes to derive the sugar from corn starch, but both undergo some processing. More important, when it comes to how the human body metabolizes glucose, fructose, sucrose and the like, dietitians say the corn refiners have it mostly right: Sugar is sugar. It’s a source of empty calories; one isn’t more healthful than another, and Americans consume too much of it, period.

500 points. “Markets rely on confidence and certainty. Right now there is neither,” said John Canally, an economic strategist at LPL Financial, an investment firm in Boston. It was the second consecutive rout in the stock market since Wednesday afternoon, when the Federal Reserve announced a change in strategy for fighting the economic slowdown — a bid to lower long-term interest rates and get people and companies to spend more money. Economic news was bad around the world. A closely watched survey in Europe indicated a recession could be on the way there, and a manufacturing survey suggested a slowdown in China, which has been one of the hottest economies. “The probability of going back into recession is higher now than at any point in the recovery,” said Tim Quinlan, an economist at Wells Fargo. He put his odds of a recession at 35 percent. Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund, said the world economy was “entering a dangerous phase.”

NEW YORK — Investors began giving in to fears Thursday that a global recession is already under way, and stock markets shuddered around the world. Selling started in Asia, picked up speed in Europe and sent Wall Street near its worst finish of the year. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 391 points and at one point was down more than 500, a return to the volatility that gripped the market this summer. One financial indicator after another showed that investors are losing hope that the global economy can keep growing. The price of oil and metals such as copper, which depend on economic demand, fell sharply. Traders bought Treasury bonds and the dollar for safety. FedEx, a company that ships so many goods it is considered a barometer of the U.S. economy, had to lower its earnings forecast for the year because customers are putting off purchases of electronics and other gadgets from China. The Dow fell 391.01 points, or 3.5 percent, and closed at 10,733.83. The selling was not just steep but broad: Nineteen stocks on the New York Stock Exchange fell for every one that rose.

As H-P’s CEO,Whitman an imperfect fit
By Jordan Robertson

SAN FRANCISCO — Hewlett-Packard Co.’s decision to fire CEO Leo Apotheker after just 11 months and replace him with former eBay chief Meg Whitman is another dizzying turn of the executive merry-goround at a company whose leadership issues are tearing it apart. Swapping Apotheker, who has now been ousted from two high-profile CEO jobs in two years, with Whitman, a billionaire who is best known for the decade she spent building eBay and her run for California governor, is a decision designed

to stem investor fury over a series of questionable strategy moves. Whitman’s starpower could be an asset for a company that struggled to gain credibility under Apotheker, who was Meg Whitman previously littleknown outside of the business software world. HP is no stranger to celebrity CEOs. But Carly Fiorina’s run as leading lady, from 1999 to 2005, ended in shambles. Despite Whitman’s success at eBay, she

is untested when it comes to running a sprawling company such as HP. “She built up a one-trick pony, an online auction site, and she oversaw the growth of the company, but we are talking about a situation where someone needs to come in who has a technological background, an engineering and scientific background,” said Steve Diamond, an associate professor at Santa Clara University School of Law. “And that is way outside of her skill set.” Diamond said the decision to change CEOs so soon points to continued disarray on HP’s board, long a target of critics for the chaos it’s caused at one of Silicon Valley’s oldest and largest companies.

Facebook looks to extend online reach, sharing
SAN FRANCISCO — Facebook is trying to evolve from an Internet hangout where people swing by to share tidbits, links and photos to a homestead decorated with the memories, dreams and diversions of its 800 million users. In what may be the boldest step yet in the company’s sevenyear history, Facebook is redesigning its users’ profile pages to create what CEO Mark Zuckerberg says is a “new way to express who you are.” It is betting that despite early grumblings, its vast audience will become even more attached to a website that keeps pushing the envelope. To that effect, it is introducing new ways for people to connect with friends, brands and games while also sharing details about their lives from the mundane to the intimate. “If you look at Facebook’s history, obviously they are not afraid of making change,” said Sean Corcoran, an analyst with Forrester Research. “They have done a lot of big changes in the past and people have gotten upset. But most of the time Facebook has been right.”

FedEx sees global slowdown, cuts profit outlook
NEW YORK — FedEx Corp. says consumers are putting off purchases of electronics and other gadgets from China, another example of the global economic slowdown that’s prompting fears of another recession. The slowdown prompted the world’s second-largest package delivery company to lower its earnings expectations for the fiscal year that ends in May. But while anxiety over the economy created a rout in the stock markets, and its own shares, FedEx isn’t yet ready to predict another recession in the U.S. “While there’s been considerable speculation that the economy has or will soon enter a recession, this is not our view at present,” FedEx CEO Fred Smith said Thursday on a conference call. FedEx’s larger rival United Parcel Service Inc. said last week that it thinks another recession is unlikely, although it warned of a “bumpy ride” for the global economy. “Our customers’ hair is not on fire. They’re just saying we’re taking it steady as she goes. It just feels completely different than it did back in ‘08,” FedEx Chief Financial Officer Alan Graf said.

CSM inducts 15 Bulldogs into Hall of Fame

With such a storied athletic history, it would have been interesting to be a fly on the wall when the Hall of Fame committee at the College of San Mateo chose its inaugural induction class. As it stands, 15 Bulldogs will be inducted 4 p.m. today at Hall of Fame Plaza on the CSM campus. And the list of inductees is very distinguished. Bill Walsh began his legendary college football career playing quarterback at College of San Mateo for the 1950 and 1951 seasons.

He was a running back at Hayward High School before commuting over the San Mateo Bridge to play for the Bulldogs before transferring to San Jose State University. Walsh is best known for his time as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, where he spent 10 seasons compiling a 102-63-1 record and winning three Super Bowl titles in the 1980s. John Madden began his collegiate athletic career playing at CSM in 1954 and 1955 after transferring from Oregon. He transferred to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where he

started on both the offensive and defensive lines in 1957 and 1958 and was voted to the AllConference team. He was also a catcher on the school’s baseball team. Madden is John Madden best known for his time as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders, where he guided the Silver and Black to a 103-32-7 record and a win in Super Bowl XI. After coach-

ing, Madden moved to the broadcasting booth where he has won 17 Emmy awards. Bill Ring was an All-Conference running back for the Bulldogs from 1975 to 1976. He’s also a graduate of Carlmont High School where he was an All-League athlete in football, baseball and wrestling. He transferred to Brigham Young University where, during his senior season, he led the Western Athletic Conference in scoring with 12 touchdowns. After college, Ring played for the

One group of Knights will come from the north, carrying a 1-2 record after putting together their first complete performance of the season. The other army will come only a couple of miles from the south. They’ll bring with them an unblemished 2-0 record and will be well rested after a battleless weekend. Both will come with something to prove. And the war zone will be the football field at Woodside High School. Friday’s affair between Menlo and Hillsdale high schools should be an old-fashioned barn burner, with both offenses having the capability of lighting up the scoreboard. So if you like your football games full of touchdowns, the Knight-on-Knight tango will be the place for you — Menlo versus Hillsdale is the Daily Journal Game of the Week. “It’s a good GPS game,” said Hillsdale head coach Mike Parodi. “It kind of lets you know where you’re at — getting ready to finish our preseason, getting ready to begin league. It’s something different than what we’ve seen all preseason. I kind of scheduled our preseason on purpose to see a variety of different teams. We played some wing teams, some I-backs, we played a team that does a little bit of everything — this week we play a

Six decades of Serra aquatics will reconvene in a celebration of great tradition today at the home of the Padres. Serra High School will honor Gus De Gara, its first ever swim coach, this afternoon as part of the official unveiling of the Padres’ new Gus DeGara aquatic center, as well as their Center for the Arts and Sciences. The special cocktail party begins at 6 p.m. De Gara will be the guest of honor, but he’ll be joined by another Serra swim legend in Keith Strange, and yet another in the making in current Serra water polo coach Bob Greene. Together they form more than 40 years of Serra swimming tradition. “It’s really special,” Strange said. “I coached at the school for 24 years, and from the first time I came to Serra, I kept hearing about Gus and the high respect all of the former athletes have for him. And the people that were still teaching and coaching at the school had such great things to say about the guy.” Success wasn’t foreign to De

Raiders expecting Jets to keep ball on the ground

ALAMEDA — Even though it’s been almost two years since the Raiders last played the New York Jets, Oakland defensive tackle Tommy Kelly won’t have to do much studying this week to prepare. After being part of a defense that allowed 223 yards rushing and 35 second-half points in a 38-35 loss to the Buffalo Bills last week, Kelly expects Rex Ryan and company to follow suit and keep it on the ground. Why wouldn’t they? It was the same formula the Jets used in 2009 when they beat the Raiders by 38 points, the most lopsided home loss in franchise history. It also matched the team’s worst loss ever in the Al Davis era. “They’re going to try to run that ball down our throat,” Kelly said this week. “It will be a big-boy pad game. They’re going to run the ball regardless. It doesn’t matter what’s going on. That’s their plan any game.” New York has rushed for only 146 yards in two games this season but the 2-0 Jets have a prime opportunity to get that turned around in Oakland. Since 2007, the Raiders have allowed opponents to rush for 200 yards or more in a game 12 times, tied with the Bills for the most in the NFL during that time. That includes a 317yard performance by the Jets on Oct. 25, 2009. A lot has changed in Oakland since then, but the team’s problems defending the run have remained a constant. “They’ve been the leading rush team since (Rex Ryan) took over as head coach,” Raiders defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnahan said Thursday. “I do know Rex’s mentality is a physical, no BS type of deal and they’re going

to try to establish the run game.” Oakland is still trying to shake the effects from last week’s second-half collapse against Buffalo. After building a 21-3 halftime lead, the Raiders unraveled over the final 30 minutes while allowing the Bills to score touchdowns on all five of their possessions in the second half. The breakdowns were numerous and everywhere. Oakland forced Buffalo into only four thirddown situations in the second half, safety Tyvon Branch and cornerback Chris Johnson both dropped would-be interceptions in the fourth quarter and a breakdown in coverage allowed the Bills to score the game-winning touchdown with 14 seconds remaining. Buffalo was initially credited with 217 yards rushing but that number increased by six yards after the NFL amended the stats, awarding Oakland linebacker Rolando McClain a sack instead of a tackle for loss when the Bills were in a wildcat formation. That helped McClain’s personal numbers — it’s the first full sack of his career — but raised the Raiders’ average against the run to 130.5 yards a game. More troubling was the Bills’ 8.7 yards-percarry average, which came on the heels of Oakland’s season-opening win against Denver, when they held the Broncos to 38 yards total on the ground. Bresnahan and coach Hue Jackson have been adamant in practice this week about moving on from the loss to Buffalo, but Kelly acknowledged that’s been easier said than done. Like the loss to the Jets in 2009, it’s not something he’s been able to let go of easily.

Niners to face former teammates on Sunday

SANTA CLARA — Vernon Davis has been matched up against Manny Lawson since both players were in college. Michael Crabtree and Joshua Morgan have been going against Nate Clements since the young receivers joined the San Francisco 49ers. Those competitive matchups will take on a whole new dimension Sunday when the 49ers play the Cincinnati Bengals. Lawson and Clements were key defensive starters for San Francisco the past four seasons but now both have similar roles with the Bengals. They’ll be looking for an edge Sunday against the same receiving threats they had been practicing against for years. And so will the 49ers lined up across from them. “They’ve got good insight on some of our personnel, there’s no question,” 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman said Thursday. “And we’ve got a few insights on theirs. So it kind of works both ways.” Roman is in his first season directing coach Jim Harbaugh’s version of the West Coast offense, and the 49ers have struggled to produce in the new system during their 1-1 start.

San Francisco ranks 31st in the NFL in total offense after finishing with just 206 yards last week in a 27-24 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys. But the 49ers are more familiar with who they’re facing this week. Lawson started all 16 games for San Francisco last season at outside linebacker and Clements started every game at cornerback. The 49ers also could face safety Taylor Mays, San Francisco’s second-round draft pick last year who was traded to Cincinnati in August for a seventh-round pick. “It’ll be a fun game and a very interesting game, especially knowing those guys,” Davis said. “I’ve been going against Manny since I was in college and going against Nate in practice, so it makes my assignment a little easier. I know those guys. I don’t have to go in and really watch them like I have to watch the other guys.” Davis first faced Lawson when he was a tight end at Maryland and Lawson was playing for North Carolina State. The pair entered the NFL together as first-round draft picks in 2006, when the 49ers made Davis the No. 6 overall pick of the draft and Lawson the No. 22 pick.


and dean. Bill Dickey was a All-American for the Bulldogs during his time at CSM from 1958-1959. He earned first team All-Big 8 Conference honors and was voted the team’s Most Inspirational Player in 1959. Dickey graduated from South San Francisco High School where he was named to the 1957 AllAmerican team Bill Dickey and won the SSF Blanket Award. Dickey was associated with CSM for 56 years, as a student, coach, faculty member and administrator. Ted Tollner was a football coach at CSM from 1968 to 1972 after beginning his career at Woodside High School. He worked under Dickey as an offensive coach before taking Ted Tollner over for him. No person has more time at the community college level than Tom Martinez. Martinez’s time at CSM spanned 32 seasons. He has 1,400 career wins in football, basketball the first time. “He was just so engaging,” Strange said, “and just so charming, and knowledgeable.” Strange served as the school’s aquatics coach from 1979 to 2004 and his tenure is considered by Padres fans as the “golden age” of Serra aquatics. With Strange at the helm, 69 Serra athletes earned All-American status, with three becoming national champions and two breaking national records. Strange earned the rare distinction of receiving the Central Coast Section Honor Coach Award in two different sports — water polo and swimming/diving. Both De Gara and Strange actually coached Greene, who graduated a (state record 565) and softball (800). His teams won 32 championships. In his 32 years, his teams never experienced a losing season. Martinez has been named to the halls of fame for San Mateo County, Daly City, San Francisco State University, the California Community College Softball Association and the California Community C o l l e g e W o m e n ’ s Basketball Association. A r c h i e Williams spent three semesters Tom Martinez at CSM before transferring to the University of California at Berkeley. He’d later go on to participate in the 1936 Olympic Games where he won the gold medal in the 400-meters. Nicole Carroll-Lewis started a career throwing the javelin at CSM resulting in a California Community College championship, two USA national titles and a berth on the 1996 U.S. Olympic Team. After throwing 121 feet her first year at CSM, Nicole improved to 139 feet her sophomore year and won the state championship. In addition to the 1996 Olympics, Carroll-Lewis represented the United States at the 1995 and 1997 Padre in 1985. “The three of us have rarely had the chance to be at the pool together,” Strange said. “There’s a whole lot of coaching experience between the three of us and it’s just great to have all three of us together at one event. I’m just so glad that they’re putting this event together.” It’s quite a “full-circle” kind of moment considering that De Gara helped designed the pool that Serra’s new facility has replaced. At the time, it was state of the art. “A lot of times, you see something in the design phase, and what ends up happening falls short. In this case, the way it turned out, it was actually almost better. There’s something very special about the World Championships, at the 1994 Pan American Games and at the World University Games. Jenny Freeman is a two-time AllNorCal and All-State softball player for the Bulldogs after graduating from Hillsdale High School. She attended CSM from 1983 to 1985. She was the NorCal’s Most Valuable Hitter in 1984 and its Most Valuable Jenny Freeman Player in 1985. Jack Avina inaugurated the College Heights gymnasium in 1963; the game resulted in an 85-51 win over Hartnell. He left CSM to coach the University of Portland in 1970. Ray Balsley was the College of San Mateo head basketball coach from 1946 to 1959 where he won conference titles in 1948 and 1952. But Balsley’s biggest contribution as a coach came on the golf links where his teams won 17 conference titles and six state titles. Starting in 1959, Bulldog golfers won four consecutive individual titles as well. John Noce is a legendary baseball coach at CSM. He took over in 1961 after spending time at Carlmont and Half Moon Bay high schools. Noce managed the Bulldogs for 31 seasons way it’s put together. Everybody that sees it is just amazed.” “All three of have had AllAmericans athletes that have gone through the school, so to have a facility that befits the quality of the program since the 1960s, we’re talking almost 50 years of aquatics at the school.”

49ers where he won two Super Bowl rings. Neal Dahlen was an AllConference football player for CSM, after attending Capuchino High School in San Bruno where he played football Neal Dahlen and baseball. He began his coaching career at CSM in 1960 after playing quarterback for the Bulldogs and winning the Most Outstanding Player award in 1958. Dahlen left CSM to the NFL where he won a record seven Super Bowls rings as a coach and administrator. Murius McFadden was a CSM coach for 40 years in three different sports. He won two state championships with the Bulldogs. Herb Hudson was a football coach with the Bulldogs and oversaw players like CSM Hall of Fame inductees Walsh, Madden and John Noce. In his 32 seasons with CSM, Hudson also served as the athletic director

where he won 772 games and 13 conference titles. Noce was inducted into the San Mateo County Hall of Fame in 1992. He also joined the American Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame in 1993 and the Peninsula Basketball Officials Hall of Fame in 1996. Bob Rush was at the helm of the CSM track and field team in 1970 when it won the Golden Gate Conference Championship. It was his first year of more than two decades with CSM. Rush then had three consecutive undefeated cross country seasons, 1970 through 1972, including a 22-0 dual meet winning streak. In 1978, Rush invented the Chronomix, the first electronic timing Bob Rush device for cross country and road racing. Rush was inducted in the California Community College Cross Country and Track Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 1996, San Mateo High School Hall in 2007 and with the nationally ranked 1964 San Mateo High School Cross Country Team in 2011.

Gara. Serra’s first swim coach is credited with taking the Padres to national prominence in his tenure. Under De Gara, Serra won consecutive league titles from 1967 through 1974. He coached nearly a dozen All-Americans as well. It’s only fitting that in 2006, De Gara was named to the Serra Hall of Fame. De Gara, who stays in Budapest, flew to San Mateo for the induction ceremony. It was then that he and Strange, who was inducted into the Hall the same night, met for

“It’s outstanding that we have well-rounded athletes at Serra,” Greene said via the Padres’ website. “They are successful in the classroom and successful in the pool. Last year, we had one Academic All-American. This year, we have six and that is a huge accomplishment for our school.” The Academic All-American program honors students for stellar academics and athletics. Student-athletes must have participated in a USA water polo national championship event to be eligible for the title. In addition, students must obtain at least a 3.6 grade point average for the 2010-2011 school year.

Serra water polo players named Academic All-Americans
According to the Serra athletics website, six Padres have been recognized as Academic AllAmericans. They are Paulo Mesaros, Steven Olujic, Brandon (Sonny) Yee, Chris Bradley, Nathan Callahan and Brendan Moriarty.

L.A.dents Giants’playoff hopes A’s avoid Texas sweep

LOS ANGELES — Matt Kemp went 4-for5 with a two-run homer and a career-high three doubles in his final home game of the season, Juan Rivera homered and drove in three runs and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat San Francisco 8-2 Thursday night, pushing the Giants to the brink of elimination in the NL West playoff race. The Giants open a three-game series at firstplace Arizona on Friday and a victory by the Diamondbacks, who were idle Thursday, would eliminate the defending World Series champions. The Dodgers moved a game over .500 with Hall of Famer Tom Lasorda serving as honorary coach of the team he managed to two World Series titles during his 20-year tenure. Kemp’s two-run homer in the eighth inning off Barry Zito was his 36th, second-best in the NL. The league MVP candidate scored three times to extend his NL lead to 109 runs and and 118 RBIs. Hiroki Kuroda (13-16) allowed two runs and five hits in seven-plus innings to extend his career high in wins. The right-hander struck out four and walked none. By pitching the first inning, Kuroda earned a $175,000 bonus. He gave up a run and two hits as the Giants took a 1-0 lead on Carlos Beltran’s two-out homer. It might have been Kuroda’s final start at Chavez Ravine. He becomes a free agent after the World Series and will turn 37 in the offseason. He was the subject of considerable trade speculation before the non-waiver deadline, when he declined to waive his no-trade clause with the only major league team he’s pitched for since coming from Japan four seasons ago. Kuroda has spoken of wanting to pitch the final seasons of his career with the Hiroshima Carp in his hometown. Madison Bumgarner (12-13) gave up four runs and nine hits in four innings, struck out

OAKLAND — The Texas Rangers are testing their own patience with six games to go. They gave up a chance Thursday to inch closer to a second straight AL West crown. Coco Crisp hit a go-ahead single in the eighth inning, and the Oakland Athletics beat the first-place Rangers 4-3 to avoid a series sweep. The reigning AL champion Rangers had their magic number reduced to two when the Angels lost to Toronto later Thursday night. “We just have to keep winning series. If we do that we’ll be fine,” manager Ron Washington said. “The sooner we win games to wrap it up, you want to do it. At the same time we don’t look too far ahead. It is the way it is. ... If we keep playing like this, pretty soon it will happen.” Texas, which held a five-game lead over Los Angeles entering Thursday, headed home for three games with the Mariners before ending the regular season at Anaheim. “We’d love to do it as soon as possible,” second baseman Ian Kinsler said. “Whether it’s the first game, second game or third game at

home, it would be a lot of fun if we’re able to do it in front of our home crowd.” Grant Balfour (5-2) pitched a 1-2-3 eighth for the win, then Andrew Bailey finished for his 21st save in 23 chances as the A’s snapped Texas’ four-game winning streak and handed the Rangers just their second loss in 10 games. Pinch-hitter Scott Sizemore hit a tying RBI groundout in the seventh against Darren Oliver. Crisp’s hit came against Mike Adams (1-3) and helped stop a three-game skid. Rangers catcher Yorvit Torrealba left in the eighth after taking a foul tip on the head and experiencing nausea. The team said he was seen by a doctor and doesn’t have a concussion. Adrian Beltre hit an RBI double, Nelson Cruz added a sacrifice fly and David Murphy also drove in a run for the Rangers, who couldn’t hold a 3-1 lead. Texas had its five-game winning streak at the Coliseum snapped and finished 13-6 in the season series — matching its most wins against an opponent in one year. “A team that beats up on you, you better have a little extra hate for them,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said.

In the buildup to their light heavyweight title bout at UFC 135 on Saturday, Jackson accused Jones of sending a mole into his Quinton Jackson camp to spy on

Jones attempts to defend title vs.Rampage Jackson
By Pat Graham

DENVER — Before he even stepped into the ring, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson was already landing punches. Only, these were mental jabs aimed at defending champion Jon “Bones” Jones.

Jon Jones

the fighter who once played B.A. Baracus in the big-screen version of “The A-Team.” It was an insinuation that stunned Jones at first and had

him back on his heels in defense. This was all part of Jackson’s plan to climb inside the head of Jones, who at 24 is the youngest champion in UFC history. A cagey mixed martial arts veteran, Jackson isn’t bashful about delivering blows to the psyche of an opponent before a big bout. “They took the bait and fell for it,” Jackson said matter-of-factly.

The usually mild-mannered Jones has vowed he won’t let Jackson get to him again, even going so far as to not only set his goal of defending his crown but winning in convincing fashion by laying out Jackson. Jones hardly looks like the same fighter who knocked out Mauricio “Shogun” Rua for the title six months ago.

Roadside safety begins with not ending up there
By Jennifer Forker

If you spend any time behind the wheel, you know it takes one mistake, one flat tire or one erratic driver to ruin your whole day. But if something does go wrong, experts agree: Do not stop your car on the highway unless you must. Even for a flat tire. “It’s hard to imagine and comprehend how fast those cars are going until you’re actually standing there hearing them,” says Lt. Scott Harrington, spokesman for the Kansas Highway Patrol in Topeka. Other drivers “are not paying attention to you . they don’t even move over.” Highway patrol officers, tow-truck company owners, the American Automobile Association - all recommend driving a disabled vehicle off the highway whenever possible. And if it isn’t possible, pull as far as you can onto the right shoulder, into the grass if you can. Often, folks don’t do that. “There have been a lot of towing truck drivers killed over the years because they didn’t have the room to work,” says Gary Petersen, who owns Pete’s Towing Service, in Des Moines, Wash. Some highways have 5 to 6 feet of shoulder - plenty of space for pulling over. Harrington recalls stopping recently to help a couple with a blown tire. The husband hadn’t pulled far enough off the highway. “They were flustered and they stopped, immediately,” says Harrington. “Their door opened onto the interstate. The gentleman couldn’t get out of his car without being on the interstate.” Harrington, 11 years with the highway patrol, helped the couple move the car to safety, and he changed the tire, too.

Beetle looking for men

2012 Volkswagen 2.0T Beetle BASE PRICE: $18,995 for base Beetle manual; $19,795 for 2.5L Beetle manual; $20,895 for 2.5L Beetle automatic; $23,395 for 2.0T Beetle manual; $24,495 for 2.0T Beetle automatic.

non-turbo four cylinder and manual transmission. The lowest starting retail price for a 2012 Beetle with automatic is $21,665. The 2012 Beetle with the uplevel turbo engine has a starting MSRP, including destination charge, of $24,165 with a manual five-speed transmission and $25,265 with VW’s sixspeed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) automatic. All 2012 Beetles come with VW’s free scheduled maintenance for the first 36,000 miles or three years, whichever comes first.

See SAFETY, Page 19

The Volkswagen Beetle is back as a new, larger car with a flatter roofline, wider track, shorter windshield, better fuel economy and no bud vase on the dashboard. It’s also offered in Turbo trim with the same 200-horsepower, turbocharged four cylinder that powers VW’s sporty GTI. Make no mistake: The 2012 Beetle, with new features such as an optional premium music system from the folks who make Fender guitars, has a masculine intent and is aimed at attracting male buyers. Women have been the majority of buyers/drivers of the previous generation car. Starting price hasn’t changed from the previous model and reflects the uniqueness of this German-engineered hatchback with one of the most iconic images in auto history. Starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price, including destination charge, for the 2012 Beetle is $19,765. This is for a base model with 170-horsepower,

ENGINE: 2-liter, dual overhead cam, turbocharged and intercooled, inline four cylinder. MILEAGE: 22 mpg (city), 30 mpg (highway). LENGTH:168.4 inches. WHEELBASE:99.9 inches. CURB WEIGHT: 3,089 pounds. BUILT AT: Mexico. OPTIONS:None. DESTINATION CHARGE: $770.
Competitors in the small, two-door car segment include the volume-selling Honda Civic, which has a starting retail price of $16,375 for a 2012 Civic DX Coupe with 140-horsepower four cylinder and manual transmission. There’s also the 2012 Ford Focus with 160-horsepower four cylinder starting at $18,995 for a five-door hatchback and the retro-styled 2011 Mini Cooper Coupe that has been priced at $22,000 with 121-horsepower four cylinder and

don’t sit with their heads right under the rear window glass. The overly large, rounded dashboard of the previous Beetle has been replaced by a shorter, more upright dashboard. The windshield is closer and not sloped in such an exaggerated fashion as in the previous model, and there’s a conventional glovebox along with a covered “Beetle bin” above it. I still had to watch carefully when making turns, though, to ensure I looked around the sizable steel pillars that frame the windshield. The Beetle rode quite quietly, with little road and outside noise coming in, save for some wind noise by the outside mirrors. Even while in the back seat, I conversed easily with front-seat passengers. In the driver’s seat, I noticed that left to its own, the DGS transmission had a tendency to move through the gears to get to the higher and more fuel-efficient gears quickly. This helped me average 26 miles per gallon in combined city/highway/country roads travel, but it didn’t make the Beetle feel spunky. So, I used Tiptronic manual shifting — which doesn’t require a clutch pedal to manage the shifting myself and get a decidedly more sporty experience. It was easy to time the shifts for impressively smooth shifts. Torque came on strongly and peaks at 207 foot-pounds at a low 1,700 rpm with the turbo. I had no problem squealing tires now Denver, echoes — and adds to — some of the tips: (asterisk) Make note of your surroundings - a highway marker, landmark or nearby town -- so that if you need roadside assistance, you can describe exactly where you are. (asterisk) After pulling onto the far right shoulder, stay in your car and call for help. Stay in the car with your seatbelt on. “This isn’t the time to let the kids hop through the seats and things like that,” says Dreher. (asterisk) Invest in a cell phone car charger and don’t leave home without it. “People have called us to request roadside assistance and we try to call them back in 20 minutes to tell them someone is on the way, and their phone battery has gone dead,” says Dreher. (asterisk) Alert other motorists. Switch on the emergency flashers. If it’s safe to leave the car, raise the hood; place flares or warning cones to alert other drivers to your position. (asterisk) In snowy weather, briefly leave the car to scoop snow or slush from and then at startup from stop signs, even though the Beetle Turbo weighs 3,089 pounds and feels solid and stable, not a lightweight small car. In comparison, the 2012 Civic Coupe weighs some 2,600 to 2,700 pounds, depending on equipment included. Still, to get the peak performance from the Beetle Turbo, VW recommends premium gasoline, and at today’s prices, that’s $55 to fill up the 14.5-gallon tank. Using the federal government’s estimated fuel economy for this model of 22 mpg in city driving and 30 mpg on the highway, the Beetle should go some 360 miles on a tank of gas. The base Beetle engine — a 2.5-liter, non-turbo four cylinder developing 177 foot-pounds of torque at 4,250 rpm — only needs regular gasoline. Its government mileage rating is similar to that of the turbo, though — 22/29 mpg. VW plans to add a fuel-thrifty dieselpowered Beetle in calendar 2012. With underpinnings borrowed from the VW Golf, the Beetle rides and handles well and managed sweeping curves and aggressive maneuvers competently. There’s more trunk space in the 2012 Beetle — 15.4 cubic feet instead of 12 cubic feet. And the split rear seatbacks fold down, though not completely flat, and help boost the trunk room to nearly 30 cubic feet. Standard safety equipment on the 2012 Beetle includes electronic stability control, curtain air bags and antilock brakes. the tailpipe so that deadly carbon monoxide fumes don’t fill the vehicle. Finally, there’s the issue of stranger danger. When stranded, do you accept a stranger’s help? Dreher says, unfortunately, no. “I’m a trusting individual. I’m sure that 99 percent of the people who would stop to help you are Good Samaritans,” she says. “Unfortunately, for that 1 percent, we have to be cautious. It’s always best to stay in your car and stay protected.” “That’s a tough one,” says Harrington, who recommends playing it safe in most situations. Sometimes, however, if stuck in an isolated location, you may have to accept help from a stranger. Rely on intuition if a stranger approaches, he says: “that hair on the back of your neck type of thing.” His best advice? Don’t get stuck on the side of the road in the first place. Plan ahead, know your route, and check the weather and road conditions. And make sure your car is in good working order.

manual transmission and $25,300 with 181-horsepower, turbocharged four cylinder and manual transmission. The Beetle debuted in the United States in 1949 as an inexpensive “people’s car” and became trendy with young Baby Boomers in the 1960s. Its reappearance as the New Beetle in 1998 contributed to a renaissance for retro-styled vehicles. Note that the word “new” has been dropped, finally, from the Beetle’s name even though there’s plenty that’s really new about the 2012 Beetle. The test car, a Beetle 2.0T with gasoline turbo engine, felt larger inside than its predecessor, giving passengers a greater sense of space around them. VW lengthened the car by 6 inches, made it wider by 3.3 inches and expanded the track and wheelbase to give the car a more substantial and sporty look. New taillight treatment gives the car a less cartoonish character, too. Inside, there’s a bit more room for the two seats in front and two in back. For example, front shoulder room and legroom have grown by some 2.5 inches and 2 inches, respectively. Back seat headroom is improved by nearly half an inch, and because the old, bubble-shaped roofline is gone, rear-seat passengers

Around the world
Move over Einstein: Law of physics challenged
GENEVA — One of the very pillars of physics and Einstein’s theory of relativity — that nothing can go faster than the speed of light — was rocked Thursday by new findings from one of the world’s foremost laboratories. European researchers said they clocked an oddball type of subatomic particle called a neutrino going faster than the 186,282 miles per second that has long been considered the cosmic speed limit. The claim was met with skepticism, with one outside physicist calling it the equivalent of saying you have a flying carpet. In fact, the researchers themselves are not ready to proclaim a discovery and are asking other physicists to independently try to verify their findings. “The feeling that most people have is this can’t be right, this can’t be real,” said James Gillies, a spokesman for the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, which provided the particle accelerator that sent neutrinos on their breakneck 454-mile trip underground from Geneva to Italy. Going faster than light is something that is just not supposed to happen according to Einstein’s 1905 special theory of relativity — the one made famous by the equation E equals mc2. But no one is rushing out to rewrite the science books just yet.

Pope warns Germans not to ignore religion
BERLIN — Pope Benedict XVI addressed Germany’s parliament in the historic Reichstag building Thursday, warning that politicians must not sacrifice ethics for power and evoking the Nazi excesses of his homeland as a lesson in history. Amid scattered protests outside and a boycott by some lawmakers, Benedict began his first state visit to Germany in a bid to stem the tide of Catholics leaving the church while acknowledging the damage caused by the clerical sex abuse scandal. The pope spoke for 20 minutes in the Reichstag, which was torched in 1933 in an incident used by Hitler to strengthen his grip on power. “We Germans know from our own experience” what happens when power is corrupted, Benedict said, describing Nazis as a “highly organized band of robbers, capable of threatening the whole world and driving it to the edge of the abyss.” But he said even under the Nazi dictatorship resistance movements stuck to their beliefs at a great risk, “thereby doing a great service to justice and to humanity as a whole.”

“That’s one of those few times people appreciate seeing us coming,” he says. Monica Mansfield, of Shrewsbury, Mass., credits a grisly accident several years ago with changing her highway thinking: She vows never to stop along a highway. “I would rather drive on a rim and get off at an exit as opposed to sitting in a lane,” she says. “I drive on a highway all the way to work, and I see some of the unnecessary things people pull over for.” AAA recommends taking an exit off the highway to a safer place, such as a parking lot or rest area, before stopping.

You don’t have to know about VORP — or WHIP, or OPS — to enjoy “Moneyball,” the story of how a bunch of stat geeks changed the way baseball teams assess and acquire players. Sure, it helps if you’re a fan of the sport and if you’ve read

Michael Lewis’ breezy and engaging best-seller “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game.” Sabermetrics — the process of applying statistical formulas, rather than on-field appearance and general makeup, to determine a player’s worth — wouldn’t seem like an inherently cinematic topic. But Lewis made lesser-known

guys like Scott Hatteberg and Chad Bradford leap off the page. And the cajoling patter from Billy Beane, the Oakland A’s general manager who pioneered this experimental philosophy, would seem tailormade for screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, who co-wrote the script along with fellow veteran scribe Steven Zaillian. Still, what’s most pleasing

about the film doesn’t really have to do with baseball. As Beane, Brad Pitt is at his charismatic best — a little weary, a little weathered, but that complexity only makes him more appealing. He’s persistent and persuasive as he tries to change the mindset of the baseball lifers who surround him. We see him rage in

Five greatest Brad Pitt performances
By Christy Lemire

LOS ANGELES — Choosing Brad Pitt’s five best performances was tough, but getting a chance to look back on his career was a joy. Ever since his breakout role as the sexy and mysterious drifter J.D. in “Thelma & Louise” (1991), Pitt has repeatedly proven that he’s so much more than just a pretty face. He’s shown a knack for choosing meaty, intelligent films and working with the most respected directors, which has allowed him to explore every facet of his versatile talent. This week he stars in “Moneyball” as Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane, a role that lets him be both charismatic and vulnerable. It’s some of his best work; here are five other examples: “Fight Club” (1999): The first

rule of Brad Pitt is, it’s impossible not to talk about Brad Pitt. He’s larger than life here, mythological almost, as Tyler Durden, the leader of the secret fight club and the key to Edward Norton’s salvation — or so he initially thinks. Sinewy and swaggering, Pitt radiates sexy masculinity in an almost primal way. The fact that he also challenges the men who follow him on emotional and psychological levels makes him not just charismatic but downright frightening. This is one of several films Pitt has made with director David Fincher — and you might put “Se7en” or “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” on your list of his top performances — but this is the one that stands out most for me. “The Tree of Life” (2011): Between this and “Moneyball,” Pitt is having a pretty great year. But the performances come in two films that

couldn’t be more different. Terrence Malick’s hypnotic meditation on family, memory and the origin of life itself is full of mesmerizing imagery. But it also allowed Pitt to do some of the best work of his career as a husband and father of three in 1950s Texas. Pitt makes the character an intimidating figure, a capricious mix of toughness and tenderness. His actions may seem questionable, even abusive at times, but you get the sense that he’s questioning, struggling, trying to figure out how to be the best man he can be without abandoning his traditional notions of manhood. “Inglourious Basterds” (2009): He’s pretty much doing a bad impression of George W. Bush here — campy but irresistible — and it is always such a joy to watch him let go and goof off. Pitt tops a tremendous ensemble cast in Quentin Tarantino’s

daring, revisionist World War II saga as the twangy Tennessean Lt. Aldo Raine. He’s the leader of a band of Jewish American soldiers who hunt Nazis with the goal of not just killing them but scalping them and sometimes carving swastikas into their foreheads. He offers a rousing mix of aw-shucks earnestness and slambang bravado. “Burn After Reading” (2008): Part of the beauty of Pitt is his willingness to toy with his own beautiful image. In the Coen brothers’ comedy, he steals every scene he’s in — and nearly walks away with the whole movie — as an overgrown child of a gym trainer whose bungled schemes get him in way over his head. Just his name alone, Chad Feldheimer, makes him sound like a first-class doofus, and one look at his blonde-streaked pouf tells you not to take him, or the film, too seriously.

But Pitt brings an innocence to the role that makes him irresistible rather than obnoxious; with the shadow of superstardom looming so large, it’s easy to forget he can be funny. “Snatch.” (2000): Pitt went even deeper to play a weird, wild comic character here, going so far as to speak in an accent that made him completely unintelligible — but that’s what made the performance hilarious. Guy Ritchie’s comedy is full of his typically colorful characters, assorted British low-lifes and eccentrics. But Pitt steals the show as an Irish gypsy boxer who speaks in such a quick, mangled way, even the Brits can’t understand him. In a recent Entertainment Weekly interview, he said he came up with the gibberish in a panic at the last minute when he couldn’t quite nail the character’s accent. But as with everything else, he made it look effortless.

Brain scans let computer reconstruct movie scenes
NEW YORK — It sounds like science fiction: While volunteers watched movie clips, a scanner watched their brains. And from their brain activity, a computer made rough reconstructions of what they viewed. Scientists reported that result Thursday and speculated such an approach might be able to reveal dreams and hallucinations someday. In the future, it might help stroke victims or others who have no other way to communicate, said Jack Gallant, a neuroscientist at the University of California, Berkeley, and coauthor of the paper. He believes such a technique could eventually reconstruct a dream or other made-up mental movie well enough to be recognizable. But the experiment dealt with scenes being viewed through the eyes at the time of scanning, and it’s not clear how much of the approach would apply to scenes generated by the brain instead, he said. People shouldn’t be worried about others secretly eavesdropping on their thoughts in the near future, since the technique requires a person to spend long periods in an MRI machine, he noted. Another expert said he expected any mindreading capability would appear only far in the future. For now, the reconstructed movie clips are only crude representations, loosely mimicking shapes and movement, but not nearly detailed enough to show that a blurry humanlike figure represents the actor Steve Martin, for example. The new work was published online Thursday by the journal Current Biology. It’s a step beyond previous work that produced similar results with still images. The paper reports results from the brain scans of three co-authors, who were chosen because the study subjects had to be motivated enough to lie motionless in an MRI machine for hours and stay alert as they stared at a tiny dot, Gallant said. The machine was used for a technique called functional MRI, or fMRI. Unlike ordinary MRI, which reveals anatomy, fMRI shows brain activity.

bargain prices — which is crucial when you’ve got a fraction of the payroll of bigmarket teams. As he ventures into this brave new world at the start of the 2002 season, having lost in agonizing fashion to the New York Yankees in the 2001 post-season, his trusty sidekick is Peter Brand, a 25-year-old Yale economics graduate and follower of sabermetrics guru Bill James. (The character is an amalgamation of several young, up-and-coming baseball executives who subscribed to this belief). Jonah Hill is at his best here, too, as Brand: the perfect foil for a force of nature like Beane. Halting and almost humorless, Hill ultimately finds the quiet confidence in this character, and he and Pitt bounce off each other beautifully. The scenes in which they banter represent the best “Moneyball” has to offer. Yes, they’re talking about baseball, but the intelligence of their interactions and the bond they forge transcend sport. And watching With no game Monday, players and coaches dressed up for their night off from work. A three-game series with reigning AL champion and first-place Texas starts Tuesday. Scott Hatteberg and the actor who played him, Chris Pratt, stuck together. Hatteberg praised Pratt for capturing him perfectly, down to his every mannerism before stepping into the batter’s box. “We were separated at birth,” joked Pratt. “Moneyball,” adapted from the 2003 best seller by Michael Lewis detailing Beane’s unconventional methods and management style in running a ballclub, opens nationwide Friday. Pitt insists he enjoyed portraying Beane, down to the GM’s temper, junk food consumption and habitual dipping. “That came pretty easily. I grew up with a little dip,” Pitt said, smiling. “I just felt a kinship with the Billy I read and the Billy I met.” Pitt praised Beane’s fashion sense and dancing skills while also noting, “We have a terrible professional baseball player — I’m just kidding.” The actor stuck with the troubled project through a hiatus and switches in directors “Moneyball” fell apart two years ago after Sony pulled the plug on it a few days before filming was to start. Soderbergh had submitted dramatic revisions to the script from Academy Awardwinning screenwriter Steven Zaillian (“Schindler’s List”), and Sony was unwilling to go along with the changes, which reportedly included interview segments with real players and team officials and re-enactments to tell the story as realistically as possible. Just as Beane had to rebuild his team in 2002 after losing key players to free agency, Sony brought in fresh talent to revive “Moneyball.” Hollywood heavyweight Scott Rudin joined producers Pitt, Michael De Luca and Rachael Horovitz to help jump-start the film. Aaron Sorkin, who collaborated with Rudin on last year’s “The S o c i a l Network” and won an Oscar for the screenplay, did a new them upend a bastion of American culture can be thrilling. Similarly, though, the things that are wrong with the movie have nothing to do with baseball, either. Insiders and hardcore fans will probably find reasons to nitpick, as is their wont; if there’s a group of people more obsessed with details and arcania than movie nerds, it’s baseball nerds. But more fundamentally, there’s a problem with the pacing in director Bennett Miller’s film. Miller’s feature debut was “Capote,” which earned Philip Seymour Hoffman a best-actor Oscar (and Hoffman shows up here in a barely developed role as A’s manager Art Howe, who bucks Beane at every opportunity). As rich a character study as “Capote” was, it also offered suspense as it traced the author’s rise and fall. “Moneyball” never feels like it’s building toward anything, even if you know how the A’s season unfolded that year. It plays out in starts and stops, and then all of a sudden, we’re in the midst of the team’s historic beginning with Steven Soderbergh and ending with Bennett Miller. Pitt indicated that leadership changes were necessary because of the unique story that “had its own verve and life to it.” “I really got taken with Michael’s book. I couldn’t let it go,” Pitt said. “I saw an unconventional story ... where guys were in pursuit of something and wouldn’t let it go at any other cost.” While Pitt’s baseball career was short-lived, and his father stopped watching games in the house growing up after the sport “priced the working man out” of attending games, he sure enjoyed being on the behind-the-scenes side of the sport. “I feel a bit romantic about the A’s,” Pitt said. “My relationship with baseball was cantankerous at best. I’ve got a crap arm. It ended with 18 stitches (pointing under his left eye).” “Moneyball” is a drama taking a close-up look at the ’02 A’s and the story how Beane ran the low-budget team based on statistics and some fortunate luck. “It was very nostalgic to me to some extent,” Beane said of recalling those days. “They did a great job with the 20game streak. It brought back a lot of emotion draft of the “Moneyball” script, sharing the writing credit with Zaillian. The studio took a risk on a director to replace Soderbergh, choosing Bennett Miller, a 2005 Oscar nominee for his fiction feature debut “Capote.” Miller came from the artsier, lowerbudgeted independent world and had made only one film, a documentary, before “Capote.” The timing was right for Miller, who had spent a few years trying to get a film of his own off the ground and “had just conceded it wasn’t going to happen,” he said. “Moneyball” probably wouldn’t have happened either without Pitt going to bat for it, Miller said. “It needed a champion for it to happen, because there’s not a ton in the book that

20-game win streak. Perhaps this is a product of the script’s development in pieces, with Zaillian starting it, Steven Soderbergh (who initially was set to direct) revising it and Sorkin submitting the final draft. Whatever the cause, the end result often feels disjointed. A subplot involving Beane’s daughter, which wasn’t part of the book, also seems like a wedged-in device to humanize him. And ultimately it seems odd to romanticize this figure who sought to strip the sport of its longheld romanticism. But like the A’s themselves at this time, “Moneyball” has enough unlikely pieces that do work — and it generates enough underdog goodwill — to make you want to stick around for the final out. “Moneyball,” a Columbia Pictures release, is rated PG-13 for some strong language. Running time: 126 minutes. Three stars out of four. for me. They really captured what was going on, and that was one of the best parts about it.” That time included an acrimonious relationship between Beane and manager Art Howe, who is played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. Still, the timing is somewhat strange now: 2002 AL MVP Miguel Tejada is out of baseball at the moment following his release by the Giants earlier this month, ’02 AL Cy Young Award winner Barry Zito has been a disappointment across the bay with San Francisco since signing a $126 million, seven-year deal before the 2007 season, and Oakland is headed for a fifth straight year without a winning season or playoff berth. The 2002 club made one of four straight trips to the playoffs by the franchise. “I think this was a really peculiar moment in sports history, where there was an intellectual advantage to be had and they seized it,” Lewis said Monday. In the movie, then-assistant GM Paul DePodesta’s name has been changed to Peter Brand — played by Jonah Hill — and he is the Yale-educated, number-crunching expert and economist. screams box office. It’s not an obvious translation to film. Baseball movies are not really attractive to investors because the markets are limited once you get out of the United States,” Miller said. “Unless you have Brad Pitt saying, ‘I want this to happen, and I’m going to see this thing through,’ I’m sure it goes away.” So Miller and Pitt met, they connected, and “Moneyball” was back on the base paths. The result is impressive. Like “The Social Network,” “Moneyball” crackles with sharp, insightful dialogue. Like “Capote,” it’s a rich character portrait of a driven figure (and it doesn’t hurt to have Philip Seymour Hoffman, who won the best-actor Oscar in the title role of Miller’s Truman Capote drama, on board as the A’s skeptical field manager).

his infamously volatile fashion when things go wrong, but we also see him make himself vulnerable: He’s embracing this approach as a result of his own failure. Tall, good-looking and naturally athletic — a five-tool guy, as they say — Beane was a highly-touted high school prospect who turned down a scholarship to Stanford to play for the New York Mets. But his professional career was brief, and he never lived up to the hype. This inspired him to value players for more pragmatic reasons than the traditional methods old-school scouts use. The most important thing, he reasoned, is getting on base. And some of the players who get on base most often happen to be undervalued, perhaps older or a little banged-up, and they come at

of the playoffs. These days, the A’s are no longer winning regularly, Beane is far from the genius he once was considered to be — and he might even be headed to the Cubs to replace Jim Hendry. Pitt was drawn to the film despite his thoughts that “economics and sabermetrics are not exactly nail-biting stuff.” Beane and Pitt were together again Monday for an outdoor news conference in the outfield at the Coliseum. They spoke ahead of Monday night’s premiere at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Oakland. Fans lined the streets a couple of hours before the premiere to catch a glimpse of Pitt, other actors and former and current players along the red carpet — which, in this case, featured a makeshift diamond with green bleachers and the warning track as the route. Chants of “Let’s go Oakland!” greeted them.

his director on the “Ocean’s Eleven” flicks, departed the film in a script squabble with Sony Pictures. Pitt was obsessed with making a movie out of Michael Lewis’ best-seller “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game,” which chronicles Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane’s revolutionary experiment to build a winning team out of unlikely prospects and castoff players chosen because they could be had cheaply and fit new mathematical models that ran counter to traditional baseball scouting stats. “I couldn’t let go of the book,” Pitt said in an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival, where “Moneyball” premiered ahead of its theatrical release Friday. “It was just something I wanted to put out there.” The Soderbergh-directed version of

DiSpirito tackles frozen pizza pockets
ids today are eating themselves into an early grave. So many children are not just overweight, but obese. And everyone from parents, schools, food producers, even the government has had a role in this. That’s the bad news. The good news is that they also all can have a role in reversing it. I’ll concede that life is tougher these days. In an era of single-parent and three-job families, many people are short on time and kitchen know-how. And too many people too often resort to microwaving processed junk and calling it dinner. And in the process we’re getting our kids hooked on these foods. I don’t have all the answers, but I do know that one of the first — and easiest — ways to combat childhood obesity is to teach ourselves and our children to cook wholesome, nutritious foods. Which doesn’t mean you or the kids need to sacrifice the foods you love. Pizza is a great example. Kids love pizza. Heck, I love pizza! I could eat it hot, cold, morning, noon and night. If there was pizzaflavored toothpaste, I’d eat it. But pizza is one of those foods with more sodium, fat and calories than anyone needs. A large slice of pizza has 600 or more calories with 26 grams of fat. My version? Just 226 calories and 8 grams of fat for two pizza pockets. OK, technically my recipe isn’t a classic pizza. This is a “pizza pocket” made from nutritious wholewheat bread and stuffed with tradi-


tional pizza toppings. Those fillings are easily adapted to your tastes; I’ve used lean Italian turkey sausage, shredded fresh zucchini, fresh mozzarella cheese, a natural marinara sauce and fresh basil — all low-calorie ingredients. Plus, this recipe is something your kids can help with. And when kids help make something, they are much more likely to think it tastes good. Just be sure to resist the temptation to use processed low-fat mozzarella cheese, the sort of shredded cheese so often used on regular pizzas. I used it for years until I experimented with fresh mozzarella. It has a sweet, rich, milky quality, and a low melting point, which allows it to meld with flavors like basil. The fresh variety, unlike the shredded processed form, adds pizzazz to the pockets. And best of all, I have found it as low as 60 calories per ounce, compared to 80 to 100 calories for regular mozzarella. I know what you’re thinking — why not just buy frozen processed pizza pockets and toss them in the microwave? Fine, if you like preservatives along with your fat and sodium. Plus, it’s important for parents to set a good example by eating and serving healthy, nutri-


tious foods as often as possible. Part of this is teaching kids that convenience foods should be an occasional treat, not a dinner staple. Children also need to understand that meals are made from ingredients, not pulled from boxes. Those are two critical lessons that are easy to forget in the weekday rush to get dinner on the table. That’s why I love recipes like this one. It’s fast. It’s easy. And it replicates a convenience food your kids will love, but that you can feel good about.

• Hide any vegetable your child doesn’t like in these pockets. I bet the kids will devour it once it’s covered in sauce and melted cheese. • Choose bread slices that are square, such as Ezekiel sprouted grain bread. Square slices are easier to fold in half than rectangular slices.

Books to give you a reason to use the oven
By Michele Kayal

Summer doesn’t often inspire us to crank up the oven. But some dishes can make it worth enduring the heat. Berries and peaches light up with just a touch of heat, and tomatoes become even sweeter. And what picnic would be complete without a juicy pie or some big, chunky cookies? To help you along, a few new cookbooks show you how to make the most of summer’s bounty. “The Sono Baking Company Cookbook,” for example, folds plump summer blueberries into tender, sour cream muffins. And chunky, chocolate-stuffed kitchen sink cookies practically scream “picnic.” But it’s really the book’s savories that set it apart. Baker John Barricelli nestles sweet kernels of corn against luscious crabmeat in a decadent French tart, and creates a Jarlsberg-topped cobbler of red, yellow and orange cherry tomatoes. If you live in a place where leeks and asparagus are still popping, show them off in his custardy leek, asparagus and corn tart. Vegetarian cooking guru Deborah Madison also has worked as a pastry chef. And she has put her knowledge to good use in “Seasonal Fruit Desserts,” a book stocked with nofuss desserts that exploit summer’s just-from-the-farm sweetness. “Fruit lends itself to improvisation,” she says. “If it’s really delicious to start with it gives you so many possibilities.” Some of her simplest desserts require no baking at all: plums are gently sauteed with a touch of cardamom, while the hollows of fat summer melons are filled with berries, wine and herbs. If you do turn on the oven, a berry and peach cobbler gets crunch from corn flour,

and easy folded pies are filled with grapes or mulberries, blackberries and other summer treats. A rightside-up cake piled with fresh fruit and just a touch of butter offers a lighter take on the traditional buttery-sweet upside down cake. David Lebovitz’s “Ready for Dessert” promises visceral satisfaction starting with the cover, which invites you to drag a greedy finger through a cake’s thick chocolate icing. Inside, almond cookies become cobbler crusts and Guinness-spiked gingerbread gets topped with lime frosting. Even classics get just a little extra kick, like a nectarine-raspberry upside-down cake with a gingerbread base. For those days when peaches practically ooze their juice at the farm stand, Lebovitz proposes peach mascarpone semifreddo, a frozen peaches-and-cream given a subtle crunch by crushed amaretti cookies. “The Sono Baking Company Cookbook” by John Barricelli (Clarkson Potter, 2010) “Seasonal Fruit Desserts” by Deborah Madison (Broadway Books, 2010) “Ready For Dessert” by David Lebovitz (Ten Speed Press, 2010) sider it an upside-down upsidedown cake) from Deborah Madison’s “Seasonal Fruit Desserts” is made entirely in the food processor.

Coat a 5by-8-inch springform pan with butter and flour. Line the bottom of the pan with a round of parchment paper, then butter that, as well.

In a medium bowl, mix the corn flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Add half of the dry ingredient to the processor and pulse 3 times. Add the second half and pulse 3 times again. Scrape the bowl to make sure everything is well combined, then give it 3 or 4 more pulses. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top. Pile the fruit over the top. Bake in the center of the oven until lightly browned and springy when pressed with a fingertip, about 1 hour or slightly longer. Let stand for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan. Dust with powdered sugar. Let cool to room temperature before slicing.

CINCINNATI — Besides her careers as a singer-songwriter and actress, Mandy Moore has quietly carved out another role as spokeswoman for global humanitarian efforts such as clean water and fighting malaria, taking her to remote villages in African countries and, this week, to the Clinton Global Initiative meeting in New York. Part of a crop of teen female singing stars that rose a decade ago, Moore explained in an interview with the Associated Press that her work for such causes as helped keep her life in the entertainment world in context. “It gives me balance and perspective,” she said by telephone from New York. “It’s sort of given me an understanding of the other side of my job — that it gives me the platform and reach that I can continue to spread the word on issues that I’m passionate about. They sort of go hand-in-hand.” Moore, now 27, has since 2008 voluntarily represented Population Services International, a Washington-based organization, in its child survival programs. She has helped launch and raise money for initiatives to help the organization provide insecticide-treated mosquito nets for children with malaria, anti-tuberculosis efforts, and for providing clean water. On Wednesday night, she recounted seeing how Pur, a water-filtering product made by Procter & Gamble, helped make dirty water drinkable on one of her Africa trips. “She was very moving, talking about her own experiences,” said P&G’s Greg Allgood, who heads the consumer product maker’s not-forprofit safe drinking water program. “She expresses herself better than a scientist like me. I can talk about the parasites; she talks about it

from a very human perspective.” Moore also “draws a whole new audience” to humanitarian causes, Allgood said, adding: “My daughter thought it was pretty cool.” “I feel it shouldn’t even be an issue; all of as human Mandy Moore beings should have access to clean water,” Moore said. “Unfortunately, that’s the not the case for many people in the world.” She recalled a Sudanese man pointing to silt and other contaminants filtered out by the Pur packets and saying: “That stuff is in our bellies.” Moore has also traveled to Cameroon and the Central African Republic for PSI, and has volunteered time for other causes such as promoting cervical cancer education for the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation and GlaxoSmithKline. “I think it’s our responsibility as individuals to effect change in whatever big or small contribution we can find time to do,” she said. “I’m proud that, I think, I’m part of a generation that is socially conscious. I’m inspired by a lot of young people that I’ve met.” For a singer whose first Top 40 pop hit, “Candy,” came at age 15 and who has made music and movies ever since, it’s a change to visit people who have never heard her albums, seen her in magazines, or, for that matter, even know who she is. “That’s usually not the case,” she said. “They’re just incredibly hospitable and excited to welcome people from the United States, whatever their job may be ... (who) will come back to the U.S. and be able to speak on their behalf.” in the Salsa Festival for the first time this weekend. He started making salsa about five years ago and has recently made his salsa into a group project among his friends. “Everyone’s got their garden, and we use as many fresh, homegrown tomatoes and jalapenos as we can,” he said. Like Matonis, Rohrbach sticks to refining his one salsa recipe. He describes his salsa as a medium spice. He uses jalapenos and serranos, but no super hot habanero peppers. “You can eat it for a long time and not be spitting fire,” he said. The main flavor of his salsa comes from roasting tomatoes, jalapenos, garlic and onions over a charcoal grill with wood chips. Rohrbach’s salsa is not for sale anywhere, but he likes to take it to parties. Last weekend, he and his friends enjoyed the salsa on burgers, quesadillas and tacos. He is looking forward to making his salsa with his friends on-site of the Salsa Festival. “Our group of friends is pretty crazy,” he said. “Everyone is dressing up in nautical theme.” He and his friends decided to go with a nautical theme for their booth because they already have nautical outfits from attending local band “Mustache Harbor” concerts. Rorhbach is planning to adjust his recipe to have a shot at the $500 “People’s Choice” award. “We’ll probably make it a little hotter for ‘People’s Choice,’” he said. faces no criminal charges. “The information was appropriately corrected and I’ve already paid the fine,” he said. The district contracts with four companies that provide daycare service including Champions Extended Learning, which the FPPC noted as Hutt’s wife’s source of income. Hutt joined the district in 2002 and his wife was hired as a site director by Knowledge Learning Corporation shortly after, he said. The company hired her independent of the district, Hutt said.

Despite his unwillingness to cater to the masses, Matonis has won the “People’s Choice” award twice at the Redwood City Salsa Festival. “I enjoy making it for people who really love my salsa,” he said. Matonis will be appearing again at the festival, happening this Saturday from noon to 8 p.m. at Courthouse Square downtown. He has also won “Best Hot” at the Salsa Festival. “I’m immune to the heat,” he said, adding that his wife eats his salsa, but not as much as he does. “I keep asking if maybe I should enter it as ‘mild’ and she says ‘what are you nuts?’” Matonis makes about two gallons of salsa at a time and enjoys sharing it with friends. He has tried to cheat and get more salsa out of his recipe by adding more tomatoes or onions, but he said his friends notice the difference. At one point, he asked a man at a Watsonville cannery about what it would take for him to sell his salsa. The man told him that it is a huge undertaking for someone who has not produced food before. While his salsa does not have a name, he and his salsa booth go by “The Spaniard.” Salsa maker Mike Rohrbach will be entering his “Captain Mike’s I’m on a Boat Salsa”

FRIDAY, SEPT. 23, 2011 LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)—If you know you don’t

have all the facts at hand, don’t try to call the shots. Taking a speculative risk on something or someone can lead to big trouble or a major loss of some kind. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)—When that common sense of yours is telling you to disengage yourself from something questionable, don’t ignore it. Remember, your better judgment is based on past experience. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)—If you find yourself being disenchanted with the small stuff, it generally

means your expectations are a bit too grand for your own good. Focus on quality, not size. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)—Although your judgment appears to be pretty good in most situations, don’t let that fool you. It could be a completely different story when it comes to money. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)—Your charm, wit and good looks are all valuable assets, but they will only carry you so far. It will take a whole lot of dedicated effort and experience to achieve success. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)—If you build your castle out of sand, it and all your wishes will quickly be swept out to sea by the first adverse wave. Be able to distinguish between what is real and what is make-believe.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)—Keep your own counsel

when it comes to your financial affairs, because, although people might mean well, they don’t always know what’s going on behind the scenes. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)—If you want to be successful, it will be up to you to direct your own affairs. Do not leave even minor matters to chance, because the slightest occurrence can throw things off course. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)—Someone who is overwhelmed might need your help, but do only what she or he wants and no more. You could unwittingly upset something the person already has going if you overstep your bounds. CANCER (June 21-July 22)—Upsetting information that you get from someone you don’t know all that

well shouldn’t be taken too seriously without first checking things out. This is especially so if money is involved. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)—Certain advice you offer a friend will be sound and helpful, yet when it comes to your own affairs you might ignore the same good common sense. Unfortunately, it’ll be your loss. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)—Make sure your judgment calls are all based on reality and not on wishful thinking. If you allow nonexistent factors to influence you, you’ll quickly come a cropper. COPYRIGHT 2011, UNITED FEATURE SYNDICATE

tices and refusal to bargain in good faith toward a fair contract that protects patient care and leaves workers’ benefits intact. Gay Westfall, senior vice president of human resources for Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and Health Plan, said the organization is disappointed NUHW is striking while negotiations are ongoing and that CNA “is asking its members to disrupt patient care and put communities at risk” when they have a contract in place through 2014. But over at Mills-Peninsula, nurses like Tobin and Morgan said management is what doesn’t have patient care in mind. The women, nurses for 25 years and 42 years respectively, said Sutter has changed the environment and priorities. “This used to be a great community hospital,” Tobin said. “But since Sutter took over, the noose is getting tighter and tighter.” The facility itself is excellent, she said, but management is whittling away patient care by keeping bedside nurses off decision-making committees and taking away sick leave so ill nurses are forced to work around patients “Do you want me going to work sick? ... I don’t think so,” said registered nurse Alan The administration says it is acting because Congress has been slow to address the issues by rewriting the law. But Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., who chairs the House Education Committee, has questioned whether the Education Department has the authority to offer the waivers. He’s said that the president has allowed “an arbitrary timeline” to dictate when Congress should get the law rewritten and that the committee needs more time to develop its proposals, which it is doing. Kline on Thursday called the administration’s plan a political move and said he cannot support a process that sets a dangerous precedent by granting the education secretary “sweeping authority to handpick winners and losers.” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Thursday that the emphasis will be more on growth than on test scores. Fitzpatrick of St. Mary’s Medical Center in San Francisco, who attended the Burlingame rally. The nurses and supporters began picketing at 7 a.m. and by 2 p.m. were ready to rally, chant and demand change with signs proclaiming “Some cuts don’t heal” and “Community care, not corporate profits.” The CNA argues that Sutter Health netted $3.7 billion in profits in the past six years all while asking nurses to make concessions like paying thousands of dollars more annually in out-of-pocket medical expenses and restrictions on doctor choices, reduced benefits for employees working less than 30 hours a week, reduced maternity leave and disciplining nurses who don’t meet arbitrary “patient satisfaction” goals based on budget priorities. Aside from cuts to their own benefits, local nurses say they were protesting parent Sutter Health’s decision to close specialized pediatric care, acute rehabilitation, dialysis and skilled nursing care services. In a statement prior to the strike, MillsPeninsula said the goal is balancing competitive salaries and benefits with affordable health care for patients. The statement said a “We can’t have a law on the books that’s slowing down progress, that’s slowing down innovation,” he said in Joplin, Mo., where the schools were left in ruins after a tornado last May. The No Child Left Behind law passed in 2001 with widespread bipartisan support and much fanfare. It sought to hold schools more accountable for student performance and get better qualified teachers in classrooms. It also offers school choice and extra tutoring to students attending schools deemed failing. Critics say the law created too much of an emphasis in classrooms on standardized tests, driving the stakes so high that it may have even fostered an environment where school officials in some districts opted to cheat. In particular, the requirement that all students be on grade level in math and reading by 2014 has been hugely unpopular. Duncan has warned that 82 percent of

demands are being ignored. Morgan and Tobin were among the dozens of red-shirt clad nurses outside the Burlingame hospital, hoisting signs and vowing to fight what they say are proposed cuts that would endanger patient care and their own ability to provide adequate care for their families. The local nurses, along with those at MillsPeninsula Health Services in San Mateo and the county’s two Kaiser Permanente medical centers, joined approximately 23,000 registered nurses at 34 Northern and Central California hospitals in the one-day walkoff. The California Nurses Association is not protesting on its own behalf at Kaiser but in solidarity with approximately 1,500 mental health professionals and opticians belonging to the National Union of Healthcare Workers As with Sutter, the workers are protesting what they say is Kaiser’s unfair labor prac-

full-time nurse at Mills-Peninsula earns an average salary more than $140,000 plus benefits including an employer-paid pension plan worth $84,000 annually on average for life, according to its issued statement. Morgan said the claim is inaccurate and that while the mean salary is above $100,000, a nurse would have to work full-time plus overtime to make the figures put forth by MillsPeninsula. Tobin said focusing on salary is also wrong. “What’s a life worth?” she asked. A bargaining meeting scheduled for Monday was canceled by Sutter, Tobin said, adding that the nurses are ready to reach a settlement but not with only them making concessions. The nurses weren’t the only ones calling for resolution. Representatives from state legislators said they stood in solidarity while workers encouraged each other to hold firm. “In a nutshell, Sutter sucks but we can do this,” said East Bay nurse Jane Sandoval.

exempted from some of the law’s requirements if they meet certain conditions. They include enacting standards to prepare students for college and careers and making teachers and principals more accountable. President Barack Obama planned to discuss the changes Friday at the White House. “To help states, districts and schools that are ready to move forward with education reform, our administration will provide flexibility from the law in exchange for a real commitment to undertake change,” Obama said in a statement Thursday. “The purpose is not to give states and districts a reprieve from accountability, but rather to unleash energy to improve our schools at the local level.”

schools next year could fail to reach proficiency requirements and thus be labeled “failures,” although some experts questioned the figure. He has said that it’s “dishonest” for schools to be labeled as failing if they are showing real improvements and that the law is creating a “slow-motion educational train wreck.” Duncan also has said that many states under the law have lowered standards instead of making them more rigorous and that the law fails to differentiate between a high-performing school with one or two underperforming subgroups and a low-performing school where everyone is struggling. The law has been due for a rewrite since 2007. Obama and Duncan had asked Congress to overhaul it by the start of this school year but a growing ideological divide in Congress in recent years has complicated efforts to do so.
