Speier denounces senator for blocking pipeline bill


U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier called a Kentucky senator blinded by ideology for his opposition on philosophical grounds of federal legislation that would strengthen safety rules for oil and gas pipelines, a bill that even the pipeline industry and companies in his own state support.

need of strong regulation and oversight, said Speier, D-San Mateo. Republican Sen. Rand Pauls opposition to the bill hasnt wavered even

after a gas pipeline rupture last week shook people awake in three counties in his home state of Kentucky. Paul, a Tea Party ally who shares with his father, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, a desire to shrink the role of the federal government, wont discuss his role in stymieing the bill. But industry lobbyists, safety advo-

cates and Senate aides said he is the only senator who is refusing to agree to procedures that would permit swift passage of the measure. A deadly gas pipeline explosion in San Bruno last year along with other recent gas explosions and oil pipeline spills has created consensus in Congress, as well as in the

Millbrae Lumber Company to close

Family-owned business in city more than 80 years
By Bill Silverfarb

County supervisors are weighing the potential environmental benet of banning plastic bags against the concerns of retailers and plastic representatives who say some industries like restaurants and dry cleaning dont have equitable alternatives. The board held a study session Tuesday afternoon to gather public input and clarify legal wrinkles as it considers whether any regulation is a move the county wants to make for the unincorporated areas. The board did not outright decide to embrace a ban but agreed to ask cities if they want to participate in a coordinated effort. Supervisor Don Horsley also

Last year, the Millbrae Lumber Company, established in 1939, was named the business of the year by the citys Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club. This year, however, is a different story as the family-owned business prepares to shut its doors in just a few weeks. The history of the company is long and its current owners, the Thurston and Massolo families, bought the lumber yard back in the early 1980s. Most of the companys 10 employees have been with Millbrae Lumber for more than 25 years and its youngest employee, 28, started with the company 10 years ago right out of high school. The companys oldest employee is 75.

Thought for the Day

A great truth is a truth whose opposite is also a truth.

This Day in History


The Congress of the Confederation voted to send the just-completed Constitution of the United States to state legislatures for their approval.

In 1066, William the Conqueror invaded England to claim the English throne. In 1542, Portuguese navigator Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo arrived at present-day San Diego. In 1850, ogging was abolished as a form of punishment in the U.S. Navy. In 1920, eight members of the Chicago White Sox were indicted for allegedly throwing the 1919 World Series against the Cincinnati Reds. (All were acquitted at trial, but all eight were banned from the game for life.) In 1924, two U.S. Army planes landed in Seattle, having completed the rst round-the-world ight in 175 days. In 1939, during World War II, Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union signed a treaty calling for the partitioning of Poland, which the two countries had invaded. In 1961, Dr. Kildare, starring Richard Chamberlain and Raymond Massey, and Hazel, starring Shirley Booth, premiered on NBC-TV. In 1974, rst lady Betty Ford underwent a mastectomy at Bethesda Naval Medical Center in Maryland, following discovery of a cancerous lump in her breast. In 1989, deposed Philippine President Ferdinand E. Marcos died in exile in Hawaii at age 72. In 1991, jazz great Miles Davis died in Santa Monica, Calif., at age 65. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush told reporters the United States was in hot pursuit of terrorists behind the Sept. 11 attacks. The U.N. Security Council approved a sweeping resolution sponsored by the United States requiring all 189 U.N. member nations to deny money, support and sanctuary to terrorists.

A woman was followed home and spit on by another driver who was unhappy with her driving on East Hillsdale Boulevard in Foster City before 12:51 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10.

Kaiser Permanente unveiled its new hightech medical facility in San Mateo yesterday that will serve about 50,000 members who live in mid-county. Kaiser recently broke ground on a new hospital in Redwood City and is investing about $1 billion in the county as it is also set to expand its hospital in South San Francisco, the companys Chief Executive Officer Robert Pearl told the Daily Journal yesterday. Kaiser has hospitals situated about 18 miles from each other on the Peninsula and the new medical ofces means that most Kaiser members have a facility within ve miles of where they live, Pearl said. The new San Mateo Medical Ofce is a satellite of the Redwood City campus and started serving patients last month. We want to be the most convenient, highquality health care provider, he said. The completion of Kaisers San Mateo Medical Ofce represents the last piece of development for Bay Meadows Phase I, which includes hundreds of housing units, retail centers and the citys new police headquarters situated at Hillsdale Boulevard near Highway 101. San Mateo had originally tried to lure a hotel to the spot as a way to boost revenue for the city but the downturn in the economy caused nancing to collapse for such a project. A hotel was proposed and it would have been nice, said San Mateo Mayor Jack Matthews yesterday. The Kaiser facility will be a great amenity for the city though. This will serve San Mateo well. About 47 percent of Kaiser members who access the hospital in Redwood City live in the middle part of the county, said Dr. Jim ODonnell, the physician in chief of the new facility.

City picks public art for park

Sculpture beats out clock as San Carlostop choice
By Michelle Durand

Around the Bay

Beaten Giants fan goes outside first time in six months
SAN FRANCISCO Relatives of the San Francisco Giants fan nearly beaten to death outside Dodger Stadium says he went outside for the rst time in nearly six months as he shows more signs of improvement. Bryan Stows family wrote on their website that the father of two looked toward the sun Friday and said Its magical. Stow over the past week also made jokes, recognized family members and recalled memories from his childhood. Bryan Stow The family says the 42-year-old paramedic speaks just a few words at a time rather than full conversations.

When choosing public art for a downtown San Carlos park, the mayors vote tipped the balance rather tting, considering the winning piece is a life-like metal sculpture entitled Balancing Act. The majority of the council, including Mayor Andy Klein, opted for the sculpture over Laurel Wreath, a clock encircled by leaves. The Arts and Culture and Parks and Recreation commissions had both given the latter the greenlight but also recommended the sculpture as an alternative for Laurel Street Park. The piece is the citys rst public art outside a ne art collection of paintings on the second oor of City Hall. Although Klein appeared to be the swing vote during the discussion, the council ultimately voted 4 to 1 with Councilman Matt Grocott dissenting because he preferred neither option. Klein said his decision was simple. The clock seemed more decorative and ornamental; it isnt going to be the conversation starter or fun piece of public art that I think our rst purchase should be, Klein said in an email. Klein said young children frequenting the park are more likely to notice and enjoy the man rather than an ornamental clock. Balancing Act is by San Rafael-

based artist James Moore. The existing kiosk in the park will be demolished to make way for the sculpture which is a boxy lifelike gure with one arm held up and balancing three multi-colored balls.

In contrast, the proposed clock piece would have sat atop the kiosk. A new bulletin board to replace the kiosk will be placed elsewhere in the park. A desire to replace the kiosk rather than adding to it was a consideration, said Councilman Randy Royce. Royce, like Klein, also liked taking a different approach. Its kind of taking a risk in doing something unique, Royce said. Moore works with metal sculpture and mixed media on metal, ranging from tabletop pieces to monumental public works, according to his website. His nearby commissions include pieces in Palo Alto, the Hillview Community Center in Los Altos and Kaiser Permanente in Oakland. The city is buying the art with $12,500, including $3,500 left over from the citys 75th anniversary events and the remainder from a private donation. Royce said he understands the art may not be everybodys cup of tea. With art, whatever you pick out half the people will love it and half the people will hate it, said Royce. It is estimated the sculpture will be installed within 60 to 90 days, said Assistant City Manager Brian Moura.

FBI: Marin Countys Belvedere is states safest city

BELVEDERE Californias safest city hasnt had a rape, homicide or other violent crime since 2007. But its also less than one square mile in size and surrounded on three sides by San Francisco Bay. New FBI data from last year put Belvedere, population 2,050, at the top of the states municipalities with more than 2,000 residents in terms of security. The rankings were based on gures supplied by 461 city police departments. Sheriff Bob Doyle says the citys showing is unsurprising given its average age of 53 and median household income of $120,000.

Notre Dame receives $2.9M grant
Notre Dame de Namur University has received a $2.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education to fund an expansion of services to Hispanic students and other underserved populations interested in careers in science and technology. The grant was awarded under the departments Hispanic Serving Institution Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and Articulation programs. NDNU is the only four-year, private university in Northern California to hold the HSI designation, which means that at least 25 percent of its undergraduate population is composed of students who identify themselves as Hispanic, according to a school press release. The grant, which will be paid out over ve years, will nance the universitys Building a Pipeline to STEM Success at Notre Dame de Namur project, which aims to: Increase the number of Hispanic and other low-income students attaining degrees in the STEM elds at NDNU by providing increased academic support, including new equipment; professional development for instructors; mentoring, and other programs; Create model transfer and articulation agreements between NDNU and two-year Hispanic-Serving Institutions, such as Caada College, which make it easier for students at community colleges to know exactly which courses they must take to qualify to transfer to NDNU; and, Improve data collection and analysis to improve Hispanic and other low-income NDNU students educational outcomes related to enrollment, persistence and completion. In its application, the university noted it expects the data collection and analysis it has planned to lead to new knowledge and better methods of serving Hispanic and other low-income students majoring in STEM elds.

First 5 weighs cuts to childrens services

A possible $15.5 million funding loss to services for children 5 and under forced First 5 San Mateo County ofcials to make hard budget choices Monday the rst step in changes that will be nalized later this year. Making these cuts could mean less opportunities for training providers, updating facilities and retaining childcare professionals. However, money would remain for programs that benet children academically and medically. Californias budget includes Assembly Bill 99, which requires First 5 Commissions throughout the state to send $1 billion in reserve funds to the state by June 30, 2012. For San Mateo County, such a cut means a $15.5 million loss. While lawsuits were led to stop the loss, First 5 San Mateo County is planning for the worst cutting $15.5 million from a nearly $60 million long-term investment plan through 2015. To give stability to programs, the board made decisions about local cuts Monday. Direction was given about which programs will likely continue and how much funding will be offered allowing staff to start renegotiating contracts. Those contracts will be nalized and return before the board in December allowing changes to take place in January. Debby Armstrong, First 5 San Mateo County executive director, called the decision a major step in the process of cutting the budget by 32 percent. First 5 currently works with 14 agencies throughout the county to provide 18 programs. Nearly all were given notice that the contracts would end Dec. 31, said Armstrong. On Monday, the Board approved 14 out of 15 proposed contracts. One contract a $2.5 million contract with the County Office of Education for the Early Childhood Quality Improvement Project will come back before the board in October. Programs the commission is seeking to maintain will provide services for children in terms of learning but also help with access to medical care, according to the staff report. It will cut back on programs that address facilities and recruiting and retaining child care providers, Armstrong said. The move is a plan for the county as a statewide lawsuit barring the move to sweep the funds was heard in August. The judge has 90 days to respond which could result in an additional 60-day appeal delay. Ultimately, legal action could delay a nal decision for months. First 5 California works to provide educational and health programs for children up to 5 years old. It is funded through a 50 cent per pack tobacco tax passed through 1998s Proposition 10. Through partnerships, First 5 works to offer direct services like expanding child-care services; providing therapists in programs to train teachers to identify and address emotional or behavioral issues; covering health insurance premiums for children ages 0 to 5; and supporting children with special needs. Last year, more than 16,000 people received services funded through First 5 6,800 children ages 0 to 5; over 5,100 parents and guardians; and 4,200 childcare providers, said Armstrong.

County passes $1.75 billion budget


Spare the Airalert issued for Wednesday

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued a Spare the Air alert for Wednesday, warning of unhealthy pollution levels and asking residents to take public transit. Jack Broadbent, executive ofcer of the air district, said high temperatures and light winds are hurting air quality in the Bay Area this week. District ofcials explained that car exhaust, industrial emissions and household chemicals contain volatile organic compounds that can combine with oxygen in the heat and create ground-level ozone. As hot weather returns to the Bay Area, its important that residents continue to do their part to reduce pollution by carpooling, taking public transit, going easy on energy use and making other clean-air choices, Broadbent said in a statement. Wednesday will be the regions eighth Spare the Air alert of the year, according to the district.

The Board of Supervisors yesterday signed off on a roughly $1.75 billion budget that includes using $11 million for a variety of one-time needs like upgrading its chambers, helping employees relocate and installing information kiosks throughout the county. The scal year 2011-12 budget adopted by the Board of Supervisors at its Tuesday meeting is increased from the tentative budget crafted in June. The changes include $47.7 million in nal adjustments and $5.1 million in September revisions. Of the adjustments, $19.2 million will be added to reserves and the remaining $18.7 million used for one-time needs.

The one-time expenses include $11 million in non-departmental ERAF reserves for a laundry list of items, such as $110,000 to modernize Board Chambers with tablets and docking stations and better audio. The budget also includes $4.87 million for information technology projects, $43,000 for countywide information kiosks, $739,085 to operate the recently acquired Circle Star properties and $2.3 million for the June 2012 primary election. ERAF, shorthand for Educational Revenue Augmentation Funds, is money collected for schools by the state. The excess after meeting funding mandates can be used by the county for other needs. Altogether, the budget changes mean

an increase in net county costs of $414,034. Although the adopted budget sets the stage for the countys finances this fiscal year, the supervisors are expected to have bigger picture discussions in October and November about the ongoing structural deficit and the potential of more so-called trigger cuts by the state. In June, the board agreed to use $50 million in reserves to balance its budget and whittle away at the structural decit. With the most recent changes, the countys structural decit stands at $50 million for scal year 2011-12 but that gure does not include costs such as a new jail, other facility debt and state realignment.

Hells Angels members charged with mortgage fraud

By Paul Elias

SAN FRANCISCO Two local leaders of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang and six others were charged with participating in a $10 million mortgage fraud that allegedly funded the purchase of

marijuana grow houses, according to a federal grand jury indictment unsealed Tuesday. The indictment alleges that Jacob Moynihan, a loan ofcer with several San Francisco companies between 2005 and 2007, submitted false income documents, employment histories and bank statements on behalf of the Hells Angels

Pipeline testing rescheduled
PG&E has rescheduled hydrostatic testing of portions of its natural gas lines along San Carlos Brittan Avenue. The testing, which was initially supposed to start yesterday, is now tentatively scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Wednesday and continue on Thursday, PG&E spokeswoman Brittany Chord said. The rst step in the testing will be venting gas near the intersection of Interstate Highway 280 and Edgewood Road. Residents may hear the venting or smell natural gas, city ofcials said. Affected residents were notied by mail and by telephone by PG&E, city ofcials said. The natural gas will quickly dissipate into the atmosphere and will not be harmful, PG&E said in its letter to local residents and businesses. The work is not expected to interrupt service to PG&E customers.

WASHINGTON One crisis averted, on to the next. The day after Congress managed to avoid a government shutdown again Republicans and Democrats stared ahead Tuesday at major ghts over spending that underscore a deep divide thats sure to dene the fastapproaching national elections. Monday night, lawmakers had postponed their dispute over whether billions for disaster aid must be paid for with cuts elsewhere in the budget, nessing a pact to keep the government operating. But tea party-driven Republicans are still insisting on signicant spending cuts this fall, with some arguing that a hard-fought congressional agreement this summer to fund the government at $1.043 trillion in 2012 was too generous. Democrats, many of whom complained of too many concessions and reductions in this years showdowns, are furiously trying to protect government programs. The next skirmish will be over how and where to spend the new years budget, with a Nov. 18 deadline for that legislation. President Barack Obamas $447 billion jobs proposal that would cut payroll taxes and increase spending on school construction and other infrastructure has already divided the parties. But the next really big deal is the special 12member bipartisan supercommittee and whether it can come up with a plan to slash $1.5 trillion over 10 years by Nov. 23 the day before Thanksgiving. These ghts will unfold against the backdrop of a feeble economy that Obama is desperate to jump-start as he pushes for a second term, and an exasperated electorate that looks at Washington and dislikes what it sees.

Slain nursing student Le remembered at vigil

Slain nursing student Michelle Le was remembered last night as an ambitious and organized, yet joyful and thoughtful young woman who wanted to dedicate her life to taking care of others. At a vigil Michelle Le attended by about 150 people at Samuel Merritt University, where she was in an intensive one-year nursing program, Les cousin, Krystine Dinh, said Le was my best friend and my role model. Dinh said Le, 26, who disappeared from Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Hayward on May 27 and whose body was found on Sept. 17, was preparing for a selfless life as a nurse, like her mother. But Dinh said that although Le was ambitious, she also had a playful side and enjoyed life to the fullest. I admired her ability to be joyful, Dinh said. Laurie Rosa, an assistant professor at Samuel Merritt, said, Michelle loved caring for moms and babies when Le did a rotation working at a hospital maternity ward. Michelle loved caring for patients, Rosa said.

Obama to Congress: Pass my jobs bill

By Erica Werner

DENVER Capping a campaign trip for his economic plan and his re-election, President Barack Obama on Tuesday tried to keep pressure on Congress to consider his nearly $450 billion jobs bill, saying it had been two weeks since he sent the bill to Capitol Hill and now I want it back. I want it back, passed, so I can sign this bill and start putting people back to work, Obama said from Abraham Lincoln Hill School, a site chosen to emphasize

the education elements of his bill. The president tailored his comments to his audience, saying the schools science labs were built decades ago and schools around the country need updated facilities. Yet his broader speech was nearly identical to ones he has given around the country. There has been no clear sign that his campaign for his bill is winning over Republicans in Congress whose support he needs. Obamas spokesman, Jay Carney, told reporters the White House hopes members of Congress are hearing from their constituents

about the need to act. Obama made that pitch himself to the audience of several thousand people, saying: Every one of you can help make it happen by sending a message to Congress, a simple message: Pass this jobs bill. Obamas bill would spend about $25 billion to modernize public schools. The White House said Colorados share could support up to 3,400 jobs. Overall, his jobs plan is a mix of payroll tax cuts and spending that he says could be paid for by requiring wealthier individuals, families and companies to pay more.

Home arsonist seeks mental treatment


The Daly City man who reportedly told authorities he was a longtime undercover agent who trained for years before setting re to his bedroom in June pleaded no contest to arson and child endangerment charges. However, Werner Heinz Mulberg, 50, may receive treatment rather than jail time if accepted into the Pathways Mental Health Court next month.

Prosecutors say Mulberg has several delusional beliefs, such as working 30 years as an undercover government agent, and is known to county health ofcials. On June 1, Mulberg allegedly sprayed a can of deicer on a vest, ignited it with a lighter and climbed out his bedroom window in the 200 block of Westbrook Avenue in Daly City. He shares the home with his wife, who is also his stepsister, their two children and their parents.

Mulbergs teen son saw smoke pouring from his parents bedroom and grabbed a re extinguisher. The re damaged one wall and a ceiling in the bedroom. Mulberg does not appear to have wanted to kill or harm his family and thought his son would extinguish the blaze, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe has said. The re required a 75-minute full response by the North County Fire Department.

Mulbergs attorney previously mulled a possible plea of not guilty by reason of insanity but ultimately opted against that route. Mulberg pleaded no contest to felony arson of an inhabited structure and misdemeanor child endangerment. He faces up to a year in county jail if Judge Mark Forcum does not deem him qualied for Pathways at an Oct. 7 hearing. Mulberg remains in custody in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Around the nation

Census: 131,729 gay couples report they are married
WASHINGTON Increasingly visible, the number of gay Americans telling the U.S. census theyre living with same-sex partners nearly doubled in the past decade, to about 650,000 couples. And more than 130,000 recorded partners as husband or wife. Census gures released Tuesday provide a rare snapshot of married and unmarried same-sex couples in the U.S. based on the government count conducted last year, when gay marriage was legal in ve states and the District of Columbia. It comes at a time when public opposition to gay marriage is easing and advocacy groups are seeking a state-by-state push for broader legal rights. Some 131,729 same-sex couples checked husband or wife boxes on their decennial census forms, the rst time people could do so, after gay marriage became legal in Massachusetts starting in 2004. That 2010 tally of married gay couples is higher than the actual number of legal marriages, civil unions and domestic partnerships in the U.S. Even after New York legalized gay marriage in June, a Census Bureau consultant, Gary Gates of UCLA, put the actual number of legally recognized gay partnerships at 100,000.

Engineers prep monument inspection

By Ben Nucklos


Workers prepare rappelling lines at the top of the Washington Monument as inspections to the structure begin.

WASHINGTON Bad weather delayed the daredevil work of engineers who will rappel down the Washington Monument for a visual inspection, but tourists who ventured to the earthquake-damaged obelisk on Tuesday were nonetheless treated to a rare sight. For several hours, engineer Dave Megerle was perched atop the 555foot monument, setting up a rope system and other equipment that will allow the rappelling team to traverse the exterior of the monument looking for cracks, chips and other damage. To get there, he climbed through a hatch that hadnt been opened in 11 years. The preparations took longer than expected, and by late afternoon,

lightning in the area prompted the private engineering rm retained by the National Park Service to call it a day. The engineers are among a relatively small group in their profession certied to hoist themselves up and down the sides of buildings. The monument sustained numerous cracks during a 5.8-magnitude quake that shook the nations capital last month, and the site has been closed to visitors ever since. The engineering rm Wiss, Janey, Elstner Associates Inc., based in Northbrook, Ill., has spent the past month inspecting the interior of the obelisk, where pieces of stone and other debris rained down during the quake. Weather permitting, WJEs team will begin slowly sliding down ropes Wednesday morning to look for additional damage on the exterior.

Florida welfare applicants less likely to use drugs

By Bill Kaczor

NASA: Satellite fell in south Pacific, not Canada

WASHINGTON That dead NASA satellite fell into what might be the ideal spot part of the southern Pacic Ocean about as far from large land masses as you can get, U.S. space officials said Tuesday. New U.S. Air Force calculations put the 6-ton satellites death plunge early Saturday thousands of miles from northwestern North America, where there were reports of sightings. Instead, it plunged into areas where remote islands dot a vast ocean. NASA says those new calculations show the 20-year-old satellite entered Earths atmosphere generally above American Samoa. But falling debris as it broke apart didnt start hitting the water for another 300 miles to the northeast, southwest of Christmas Island, just after midnight EDT Saturday.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Preliminary figures on a new Florida law requiring drug tests for welfare applicants show that they are less likely than other people to use drugs, not more. One famous Floridian suggests that its the people who came up with the law who should be submitting specimens. Columnist and best-selling author Carl Hiaasen offered to pay for drug testing for all 160 members of the

Florida Legislature in what he called a patriotic whiz-fest. Several of the laws supporters say theyre on board. There is a certain public interest in going after hypocrisy, Hiaasen said Tuesday, two days after he made his proposal in a Miami Herald column. Folks that are applying for DCF (Department of Children and Families) money normally wouldnt be standing in that line, and on top of that humiliation they now get to pee in a cup so they can get grocery money for their kids, Hiaasen told

the Associated Press in an interview at his Vero Beach home. Gov. Rick Scott and other supporters of the law the only one of its kind currently on the books in the U.S. say the tests will save the state cash by weeding out people who would use welfare money on drugs. Critics say that just a few months after it went into effect, the law has already refuted the idea that people receiving public assistance are more likely to use drugs. Preliminary figures show that about 2.5 percent of up to 2,000 applicants for Temporary

Assistance for Needy Families have tested positive since the law went into effect in July. Another 2 percent declined to take the test, Department of Children and Families ofcials say. The Justice Department estimates that 6 percent of Americans 12 and older use illegal drugs. The American Civil Liberties Union is challenging the law, saying it violates welfare applicants constitutional right against unreasonable searches. For that reason, a federal appellate court struck down a similar Michigan law in 2003.

In GOP race, Romney, Perry and Paul are the money men

Poll: Young people report online meanness pervasive


Only three Republican presidential candidates are worth any money campaign money, that is. Mitt Romney, Rick Perry and Ron Paul have banked millions. But the other GOP candidates are struggling or broke, putting their candidacies in question four months before the rst nominating contests take place.

Ahead of a critical fundraising deadline Friday, all of the GOPs contenders regardless of the level of their nancial health are furiously courting donors in Texas, Georgia, Washington and elsewhere. Its a last-minute attempt to pick up cash before they le a three-month summary that will measure one aspect of the nancial strength of their campaigns.

WASHINGTON Catherine Devine had her rst brush with an online bully in seventh grade, before shed even ventured onto the Internet. Someone set up the screen name devinegirl and, posing as Catherine, sent her classmates instant messages full of trashy talk and lies. They were making things up about me, and I was the most innocent 12year-old ever, Devine remembers. I

hadnt even kissed anybody yet. As she grew up, Devine, now 22, learned to thrive in the electronic village. But like other young people, she occasionally stumbled into one of its dark alleys. A new Associated PressMTV poll of youth in their teens and early 20s nds that most of them 56 percent have been the target of some type of online taunting, harassment or bullying, a slight increase over just two years ago.

Reed,Wozniak for Belmont City Council

he long and involved process regarding the desire for more youth to play on Koret Field at Notre Dame de Namur University was but one issue facing the city of Belmont in recent years. But as often is the case, sometimes one decision, or the process for one decision, can paint a picture of a community. On one hand, you had a university which wanted expanded hours for play while also allowing youth sports groups access. On the other hand, you had a group of neighbors who wanted to limit the amount of play to keep the noise down. During the process, feelings were hurt and the situation became worse than it needed to be. It may be a simplistic perspective, but sometimes the way a city conducts its business is as important as the business at hand. No one should feel good about how the Koret Field situation was handled. This is one issue in a city with many how to best manage

Stop the wave

inning the World Series was fun. The parade was good. Dont get me wrong. I loved it. I even dealt with the trophy ceremonies, the arm patch, the ring ceremonies (yes, there were multiples), the Panda hats, the Baby Giraffe hats, the striped socks, the injuries, the lack of hitting and the fans who kept saying Believe when it was so obvious this was not to be a repeat year. But I draw the line at the wave. During Monday nights game, fans at AT&T Park did the wave approximately six times around the stadium as reliever Sergio Romo was in the midst of a tremendous hitless inning streak which ended. I dont think the wave was to blame for the streaks end, but it certainly didnt help. I get it. These games are worth nothing. The Giants made it interesting up to this past weekend when they were pummeled by the Diamondbacks, who celebrated their division title on the field in front of the Giants, their World Series championship accomplishment further fading in front of their eyes. Now, its extra time with the Giants playing out the string against the Rockies. Both their seasons will end this week. I was once in the bleachers at AT&T Park when a group of fans in the left field section tried to start the wave in the later innings of a loss. A stalwart fan snapped to attention in the bleachers and ran to the edge of the section with a fervent motion of both hands up, palms out and a very vocal Stop! It did. And the game was better for it. Its the way it should be. Going to a baseball game is about the game itself. The deliberate pace makes the play on the field calm and methodical until something happens, then its exciting. That is the time to cheer. Not in a wave that has nothing to do with the play on the field at all. If a fan is bored at a game, there is plenty to do. You can look at the pitch count, check out the stats on the big board, contemplate the field position of various players according to who is at bat, watch the pitch locations or consider the matchups in the next inning. If that doesnt grab you, there is quiet and contemplative people watching or even an opportunity to grab a refreshment. But the wave is not the answer. Its disrespectful to the team and other fans who want to watch the action on the field. I thought it was an unwritten rule at AT&T Park. I thought Giants fans had more sense and respect for the game that to revert to a useless and mindless cheer. Maybe it is still an unwritten rule that was violated. Maybe it was an anomaly that capped a season with its share of disappointment. Or maybe it was the appropriate response to the lackluster play and unnecessary pageantry. The season ends today. Maybe it was a wave goodbye.

nances affected by the state and an economic downturn, what to do about its downtown and how best to work with varied interests whether they be businesses, the citys university or other cities. There are two incumbents running for City Council, David Braunstein and Christine Wozniak. Challenging them are Paul Brownlee, Michael McGuinness and Eric Reed. Reed is an obvious choice for this position. His mindset is positive and determined in his resolve to work with the entire community. He sees a denitive need to address the citys infrastructure, to be proactive with downtown and to improve the strained relationship with Notre Dame de Namur University. If a city is to be strong, it must work well with all communities and be as friendly as possible to its families. He has a strong background of community service, with his current

position as chair of the Planning Commission and understands the need to diversify the citys business community. As part of the citys leadership, he also has a rm grip on how it runs, what it needs and its place on the Peninsula. But most importantly, he will be a refreshing voice of calm, openness and sensibility. He will be a great addition to the City Council. Of the two incumbents, Wozniak is a strong choice. She understands the need to communicate well with other cities as a member of regional boards and has a strong grasp on city issues, both large and small. She put in long hours trying to save the strained re department relationship with the city of San Carlos even though the two cities eventually went their separate ways. She has demonstrated positive leadership and understands the citys nances well. We would have liked a more open-minded position when it came to the Koret Field position, however her strong desire to represent a cer-

tain point of view is understandable. Braunstein also has a rm grip on the citys issues and speaks as if he likes being a connector. There is something to be said for quiet leadership, and we have seen ashes of leadership from him when he took over the mayors seat because of the resignation of another councilmember. However, he has not provided enough evidence of active leadership or overall interest to be considered over Reed or Wozniak.

Letters to the editor

Treatment of mentally ill in community versus jail
The Daily Journal received a copy of this letter to the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors: It has come to the attention of our organization, NAMI San Mateo County (National Alliance on Mental Illness), that our Board of Supervisors is very close to making the decision and the nancial commitment to move forward with the building of a new jail. As an advocacy organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with mental illness and their families, we strongly urge the entire Board of Supervisors ensure that, by default, the new jail does not become the location where those with mental illness and behavioral health issues ultimately receive treatment. The criminalization of mental illness is not acceptable and must be prevented by preserving and even increasing funding for such proven services as CIT (crisis intervention team) training for all law enforcement; the SMART TEAM; Mateo Lodge, Inc. Support Team; Full Service Partnerships; Pathways Court; residential treatment and basic ACCESS to services. Whatever it takes to keep people in the community and out of jail. It costs taxpayers much more when citizens are incarcerated than when they can be treated in a supportive community setting. Criminal Justice Realignment is happening beginning in a few days and despite planning for reentry etc., it likely wont be clear what the needs of these former state prisoners will be until they arrive in our county. There will be potentially further overcrowding of county jail and subsequent increased demands on the courts and denitely an increase for health and behavioral health services. It is not prudent or acceptable at this critical time to shift money away from health/behavioral health. In closing: There is no health without mental health and if citizens are healthy the safety of all is pretty much a given.

End capital punishment

Editor, The execution of Troy Davis was another example of the moral bankruptcy of the institution of capital punishment. While I personally believe that capital punishment is never right, in Davis case, there is overwhelming doubt that he was guilty of the crime (Davis backers seek next step after execution published in the Sept. 22 edition of the Daily Journal). A million people signed petitions stating that they doubted his guilt, yet 12 jurors and a judge had the power to order him executed. Because we claim and strive to be a civilized society, we must end this practice of capital punishment once and for all.

Open obstruction
Editor, The Department of Justices (DOJ) open obstruction of the Fast and Furious investigation makes one question its integrity. Why would it not want to know who is authorized selling automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels? Why did it give House Oversight and Government Reform Committee blank pages and redacted documents? It certainly makes one wonder what side they are on. The same questions arise with the Solyndra scandal. Immediately upon declaring bankruptcy the FBI seized Solyndras records. This gave the company executives a reason to plead the fth. We all know the DOJ does not comment on open investigations. The executives taking the fth cannot tell us who authorized the $535 million loan. How convenient.

Overlooking the obvious

Editor, The article Unsustainable UC tuition published in the Sept. 24-25 weekend edition of the Daily Journal overlooks the obvious. Dened benet public employee pension plans are the major problem facing all levels of government. Multi-billion dollar retirement funds and investment pools, run by gamblers promising unsustainable returns, are at fault. And, the potential for insider trading abuse is huge.

Enumerated powers
Editor, The Federal Government has become the politburo, the nanny and the menace. Formerly referred to in our constitution as the legislatures, Congress, the executive, the president and judicial, counts all three branches of our government. The above goes for the states in spades. We as people have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. My advice to my fellow citizens: Do not vote based on 30-second tel-

All 10 company groups that make up the Standard & Poors 500 index rose. Volume was slightly higher than average at 4.9 billion shares.

European markets also closed sharply higher. Germanys DAX rose 5.3 percent, Frances CAC-40 5.7 percent. Britains FTSE 100 rose 4 percent. The encouraging signs from Europe also sent commodities prices higher. Investors fear that a blowup in Europes debt crisis could drag down economic growth across the globe.

Spring buying boosts U.S.home prices

By Derek Kravitz


6:30am-3pm, Monday-Sunday

WASHINGTON The depressed housing market ashed a positive signal in July, with home prices in most major U.S. cities rising for the fourth straight month The Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller index released Tuesday showed that prices rose from June to July in 17 of the 20 cities the index tracks. Detroit, Chicago and Minneapolis posted the biggest percentage gains. Prices fell in two cities among those hit hardest by the housing crisis Las Vegas and Phoenix. The index, which covers half of all U.S. homes, measures prices compared

with those in January 2000 and creates a three-month moving average. The July data are the latest available. Analysts cautioned that the price increases are likely temporary, buoyed by seasonal buying, and not evidence of a housing recovery. Home sales have declined in each of the months in which prices rose. Prices are expected to drop again this fall and winter, based on the poor sales and on expectations that banks will resume processing a raft of foreclosures that have been in limbo. This is still a seasonal period of stronger demand for houses, so monthly price increases are expected, said David M. Blitzer, chairman of S&Ps index

committee. While we have now seen four consecutive months of generally increasing prices, we do know that we are still far from a sustained recovery. Over the past 12 months, prices have fallen in all but two cities: Detroit and Washington, D.C. In Detroit, prices have risen 1.2 percent. Its housing market has been among the nations worst over the past decade. In July, prices there equaled 1995 levels. In some cities, prices are so undervalued they are not likely to fall further, said Patrick Newport, U.S. economist at IHS Global Insight. Detroit, which largely avoided a run-up in prices but still saw prices collapse, may be a case in point.

Cantaloupe outbreak could be deadliest in a decade

By Mary Clare Jalonick

(650)548-1100 (650) 548-1300 fax 680 E. 3rd Ave & Delaware (by 7-11 Store) San Mateo

WASHINGTON As many as 14 people have died from possible listeria illnesses traced to Colorado cantaloupes, health ofcials say a death toll that would make the food outbreak the deadliest in more than a decade. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said last week that 55 illnesses and eight deaths were linked to the outbreak. Since then, state and local health departments in Kansas, Nebraska, Texas and Wyoming have reported six

additional deaths that may be linked to the tainted fruit. Nine people died in an outbreak linked to salmonella-tainted peanuts almost three years ago. Deaths linked to the cantaloupes are expected to easily surpass that number. Listeria is more deadly than more well-known pathogens like salmonella and E. coli, though those outbreaks generally cause many more illnesses. Twenty-one people died in an outbreak of listeria poisoning in 1998 traced to contaminated hot dogs and possibly deli meats made by Bil Mar Foods, a subsidiary of Sara Lee Corp. Another large

listeria outbreak in 1985 killed 52 people and was linked to Mexican-style soft cheese. Listeria generally only sickens the elderly, pregnant women and others with compromised immune systems. The CDC said last week that the median age of those sickened was 78. Dr. Robert Tauxe of the CDC says the number of illnesses and deaths will probably grow in coming weeks because the symptoms of listeria dont always show up right away. It can take four weeks or more for a person to fall ill after eating food contaminated with listeria.

Judge refuses to extend sale timeline for Solyndra
WILMINGTON, Del. A Delaware bankruptcy judge has refused to extend the sale timeline of failed solar-panel manufacturer Solyndra LLC, which received a half-billion-dollar federal loan and was once touted by President Barack Obama in support of his administrations economic policies. The judge on Tuesday said the timeframe proposed by company based in Fremont to sell its assets will remain in place.

NEW YORK Google wants to buy solar panels for your house. The search giant announced Tuesday that it will provide $75 million to build 3,000 residential solar electricity systems across the country. Google will own the panels, and get paid over time by customers who purchase the electricity the panels produce. Google is creating a fund with a San Francisco company called Clean Power Finance that local solar installers will be

able to tap so they can offer nancing plans to prospective buyers. The plans allow homeowners to install a $30,000 solar electricity system on their house for little or no money up front. Instead, customers pay a monthly fee that is the same or less than what they would otherwise be paying their local utility for power. Google will earn what it calls an attractive return on its investment in two ways. It gets the monthly fee from homeowners, and, as the owner of the systems, Google will get the benet of federal and state renewable energy subsidies.

Mills climbs out of cellar

By Nathan Mollat

While neither the Mills nor the San Mateo boys water polo teams will probably contend for the Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division championship, they both had a chance to climb out the cellar when they met in San Mateo Tuesday afternoon. Both came into the match winless in division play, so there was a sense of urgency on both sides. In the end, the Mills defense was the difference in an 8-6 Vikings victory. I think our defense is improving. Defense wins games. Thats in any sport, said Mills coach Daniel Chen. You cant just swing for the fences (offensively all the time).

After trailing 5-4 at halftime, Mills (1-3 PAL Ocean) outscored San Mateo (0-4) 4-1 over the nal 14 minutes. The Bearcats pulled within two, 8-6, on a goal from Tom McCall with 2:23 left in the match. They had their chances in the nal minutes their best chance coming with McCall winding up for a shot, only to have the ball swatted away and stolen from behind. The Mills defense blocked two more shots as the Vikings survived for the win. Today was the game we were supposed to win, said San Mateos John Halet. We have a problem when we think too much about offense. Halet was San Mateos main man, but when one player is the teams

best passer, best defender and best scorer, thats a big load to shoulder. Halet scored three times for the Bearcats, including a goal from midpool as the second quarter ended, putting his team up 5-4. Im more surprised when I miss shots, Halet said. I want to be able to put the team on my back, but I want them to get better. Mills countered Halet with Wonsik Kim, who scored twice and had three assists. Hes a small kid by water polo standards, but he has heart. He doesnt quit, Chen said of Kim. Hes the best player I have on the squad. San Mateo opened the scoring at the 3:42 mark of the rst quarter on

Pratt powers Panthers Aragon

By Julio Lara

Athlete of the Week

Against the Willow Glen girls water polo team last Thursday, Burlingames Charlotte Pratt was a one-woman scoring machine. While most players would be more than ecstatic with scoring 16 goals in a single season hey, maybe even a career the senior captain of the Panthers water polo team did it in a single game including the nal two to give her team a 19-18 victory. We believe the appropriate term is, en fuego. I was pretty pleased at the end of that game with how I played, Pratt said. And happy with my individual performance. So yeah, but I dont really know what was going on that day. One of the symptoms of being in the zone is a slight lapse in short-term memory, and Pratt was there and a bit beyond the senior scored those 16 goals on only 22 shots, scoring from everywhere on the pool. Heck, had she taken a shot from the parking lot, she was so dialed Thursday, she probably would have scored from there, too. But Pratt didnt stop there. In four games at the Amanda McDonald Invitational Tournament over the weekend, No. 19 scored 18 more times. For those keeping score at home, thats a ve-game stretch in which she scored 34 times. For her efforts, Pratt is the Daily Journal Athlete of the Week. It was a very competitive tournament, Pratt said of the MacDonald. There were a lot of good teams there. Overall, I think we played really well. We went up against Sacred Heart Prep and Menlo-Atherton and we held our own even though we lost those two games. Burlingame competed, nishing seventh in eld that included Prep, M-A, St. Francis and Soquel.

sweeps Panthers
By Julio Lara


The Burlingame High School gym hasnt been very nice to the Aragon volleyball team in recent memory. According to Aragon coach Annette GennaroTremble, the seniors on her team had lost to the Panthers team three years running, so Mangini Way had been a bit of a jinx for the Dons that is, until Tuesday. Aragon, behind some fantastic net play, swept the Panthers 25-20, 25-22, 27-25 in an early season marquee matchup between two teams that expect to gure into the PAL Bay Division title equation. We havent beat them in a couple of years, said Aragon middle blocker Jessica Navarro. So we just wanted to come here, work hard, as hard as we could, and play as a team together and beat them. (The win) shows that were really working hard this year. (The team) was really excited to get this win, Gennaro-Tremble said. I think we did really well at the net and hitting at the top. Overall, I thought we had a pretty good game. It was a statement-like performance by the Dons, who came into the game as a denite contender in the Bay Division following a successful preseason and a 2-0 start in league play. In Burlingame, the Dons faced their rst legitimate test and they passed with ying colors. The start wasnt so hot, however. The Panthers, behind the service of Madison McKeever, jumped out to a 6-0 lead to start Game 1. Gennaro-Tremble

Hall of Fame festivities hype CSM football

By Nathan Mollat

If youre the College of San Mateo football team, its hard to know how well the Bulldogs really played in their 83-0 shellacking of visiting West Valley last Saturday afternoon.

We just want to get better, said Tim Tulloch, CSM defensive coordinator and assistant head coach. We have goals and we made all our goals, offensively and defensively. Tulloch believes the team was especially hyped for the game, given the schools opening of its new Hall of

Fame Plaza over the weekend. With CSM legends such as Tom Martinez and multiple Super Bowl winner Neal Dahlen in attendance, Tulloch believes the team wanted to show that the program is in good hands for the 2011 season. Our guys were part of the ribbon-

cutting ceremony (Friday afternoon), Tulloch said. That was big for them. With that comes accountability to carry on the tradition. Moments like that are priceless. Up next for the Bulldogs is their second road game of the year when they travel across the San Mateo

Bridge to take on an undefeated Chabot of Hayward squad Saturday night. Theyre a well-coached football team, Tulloch said. Theyre blowing people out. Theyre explosive on offense.

Pats prepare for another up-and-coming team

By Howard Ulman

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. New Englands 15-game winning streak over the Buffalo Bills is over. Now the Patriots are preparing for another improving team that struggled the past decade. The Oakland Raiders are 2-1 after going eight seasons without a winning record. The Bills have just one winning season in the past 11 but snapped that long slide against the Patriots last Sunday with a 34-31 win. So the Patriots have plenty to prepare for against a team they havent played in three years. We studied them quite a bit in the offseason to become familiar with them because we hadnt played them since 08, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Tuesday. Thats a good football team and it looks like theyre getting better. Sundays game matches the NFLs top passing offense, led by Tom Bradys 442.3 yards per game, against the No. 1 rushing attack with Darren McFadden, who leads the league with 131 yards per game. They definitely like to run the ball, Belichick said. They throw enough deep balls and they do enough in the passing game to make you worry about that, too. You cant just stop one thing. Theyre certainly a very good running team, one of the best that well face. McFadden ran for a career-high 171 yards and two touchdowns in last Sundays 34-24 win over the New York Jets. One week earlier, the Raiders built a 21-3 lead at Buffalo but

lost 38-35 on a touchdown pass with 14 seconds left. Then it was the Patriots turn to blow a big lead against the Bills, who overcame a 21-0 decit last Sunday. That left the Bills at 3-0. Belichick knows it could have been the Raiders with the unbeaten record. Theyre really a couple of seconds away from being 3-0, he said, very explosive, got a lot of big pass guys, playing with a lot of condence and were going out there on the road. The Patriots also had a good shot at a 3-0 record when they built their 21-0 lead. It was 31-31 when the Bills got the ball at their 20yard line after a touchback on a kickoff with 3:25 remaining. They needed just three plays to get to the 1, then worked the clock down until Rian Lindells winning 28-yard eld goal on the nal play. New England couldnt stop the Bills from marching downeld. In fact, the Patriots have given up more total yards and yards passing than any other team. Their defense against the run is ranked 10th best one promising sign against a run-oriented attack like Oaklands but thats deceiving since teams have had to pass more to try to overcome decits. Jason Campbell is the NFLs 10th-ranked quarterback but has thrown only 82 passes in the Raiders three games. They mix in some gadget plays, some reverses, some things like that, along with their power running game and do a good job in their passing game of getting the ball down the eld and also getting it to their backs and underneath people, too, Belichick said. They make you defend the whole eld and


Oakland will have its hands full in trying to stop New England QB Tom Brady,who is on a record-breaking pace this season.
any time you can be successful running the ball that opens up the play action and the passing game and everything else. The Patriots are a pass-rst team. When they run the ball, BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead get most of the work, although rookie Stevan Ridley led them with 44 yards on seven carries against Buffalo. Last week was basically the rst game that he had played a decent amount, Patriots offensive coordinator Bill OBrien said. Hes got a long way to go, just like any rookie, as it relates to the overall scheme and knowing

what to do and things like that. I think that whole position has been good for us this year. For the second straight game, the runners will have to contend with big defenders. Buffalo has the biggest team in the league, director of player personnel Nick Caserio said. The Raiders are a big team. ... They are strong and physical and also have fast and athletic guys. Against the Bills, Brady completed 30 of 45 passes for 387 yards and four touchdowns. But he also threw four interceptions, matching his total for all last season, with one returned for a touchdown. He should do better against the Raiders, who have allowed more yards passing than all but four teams. Wes Welker burned the Bills with 16 catches for 217 yards and two touchdowns. But Chad Ochocinco hasnt made an impact in three games with his new team. He caught two passes for 28 yards but dropped a perfect pass near the end zone. In three games he has just ve catches. Chad, just like everybody else in that game me included would probably wish to have a couple of plays back, OBrien said. The Patriots get another chance on Sunday against another team trying to leave behind a history of futility. Each week presents new challenges, Belichick said. Sometimes the matchups from one week are more or less favorable than the week before. Again, a lot of times you never know exactly how a team is going to play anyway so you have to be ready to make adjustments during the game.

Niners unveil plans for new stadium


SANTA CLARA The San Francisco 49ers still dont know whether they will have the nancing to build a new stadium near their practice facility in Santa Clara but were optimistic enough to unveil plans for one Tuesday. If nothing else, the 49ers dream large. Everything about the stadium, from the 165 luxury suites to a planned ve-story photo of The Catch, which sent the 49ers to their rst Super Bowl in 1981, has been designed to

make it a fan-friendly entertainment center. The 49ers opened a preview center, at a cost of $2.5 million, last November to showcase the new stadium for prospective suite, club seat and season ticket holders. It was a work in progress until today, 49ers chief operating ofcer Paraag Marathe said. In June 2010, Santa Clara voters passed a plan by the 49ers to build the 68,500-seat stadium. Under the agreement with the team, the city and area hotels would contribute $114 million to the $937 million project next to Great America theme park.

Jed York, president and CEO of the 49ers, said the team is still focused 100 percent on the Santa Clara project. He is hoping to start construction in January 2013 and open the stadium for the 2015 season, although theres still a shortfall in cash. The 49ers did move to clear one obstacle. The York family is partnering with local real estate rm JMA Ventures to buy the Santa Clara theme park that had opposed the 49ers new stadium plans.

Man behind the mask: Lou Sealmakes it 13 in a row

By Janie McCauley

SAN FRANCISCO Joel Zimei exhibits what can only be considered a mascot swagger. No matter that almost nobody knows his real name, save for those behind the scenes with the San Francisco Giants. To the masses, he is the beloved Lou Seal. The mascot bounces around the ballpark, dances on the dugout and poses for photos. He signs autographs, too. And Lou Seal is riding quite the impressive streak. When the reigning World Series champions wrap up their season Wednesday, it will mark Zimeis 1,054th consecutive home game a Cal Ripken-like record in his costume-wearing world. Thats 13 straight seasons, spanning the nal days at Candlestick Park to the present in the Giants picturesque waterfront spot. How has he pulled off this remarkable run while balancing life as a husband, homeowner and soon-to-be rst-time father? Stubbornness and determination, Zimei said while hurriedly getting ready for Monday nights game against the Colorado Rockies. Thats 13 straight seasons without missing a game. Yet Zimei has lost track of his streak. He knows June 8 marked 1,000 straight home games the team honored him with a banner that day. After that, Zimei has to make a quick count on the magnetic schedule stuck to the door of the Seal Cave, his locker room. Its an approximately 12-foot-by-12-foot closet where he transforms himself into San Franciscos Lou Seal simply by pulling on that larger-than-life uffy gray seal suit. Virtually anonymous the way he prefers it instincts take over once Zimei gets dressed. Its almost automatic, no matter how Im feel-


The man who plays Lou Seal Joel Zimei will have donned the suit for every home game for the last 13 seasons,without missing a game.
ing, Zimei said. Its like hitting an involuntary switch and I just become Lou. After 13 years, sooner or later, it just blends. On this night, he apologizes for the McDonalds garbage on the oor. He swears its the rst time in six months he has eaten fast-food for his pregame meal. Sometimes, theres no choice because of the time crunch. He also needs his fuel considering how active he is each night and its typically 45 degrees warmer inside his suit than it is outside. Zimei has had some close calls along the way keeping his streak alive. He once drove through the night from Reno, Nev., to make it back from vacation just in time for a day game after his ight from Denver to San Francisco got canceled. He told his wife, Sierra, he couldnt miss the game. This is my full-time gig, said Zimei, who is aided with all aspects of his operation by assistant Anthony Pava. Its the longest streak. All of us

are pretty good friends. NFL guys, good luck catching me. Youd have to have a 100-year run to get close. Zimei became Luigi Francisco Seal in 1999. He has his own magnets, World Series pictures that he autographs, even business cards with his real name and that of Lou Seal. Hes 5-foot-9-something as he puts it and 170 pounds. In costume, Zimei stands 6-2. Just like all the ballplayers he cheers, Zimei remembers his callup to the big leagues as if it were yesterday. A college student in criminal justice at the time, he became a mascot by accident. Zimei took a job working for Philadelphias Triple-A Scranton club when he got the chance to help out the Phillies mascot during the 1998 season. That offseason, he wrote to most of the major league clubs and discovered the Giants, Mets and Red Sox all were holding mascot auditions. I didnt want to be a Red Sox, I didnt want to be a Met. My grandfather was a huge, huge Willie Mays fan back in the Willie Mays New York Giants days, Zimei said. I gured it would be fun to get off the East Coast, come out here and check out California, and Ive been here ever since. In the winter, Zimei works for the NBAs Golden State Warriors across the bay in Oakland. Though he doesnt give his body much of a break, he has never been on the mascot disabled list. Fortunately the injuries I have had Ive been able to work through, he said. I broke my right hand the last day of the season in 2004 because I was a sore loser and punched a brick wall after I found out we didnt make the playoffs that year. Fortunately for me it healed through the offseason.

Rockies crumble against Giants

Giants 7, Rockies 0
stumbled his way around the bases in the seventh for his rst career home run. The Giants rookie hit a deep y ball into the gap in right center that sailed over the head of Colorado outelder Ty Wiggington. Gillaspie raced around the bases and broke for home when Wiggington overthrew cutoff man Mark Ellis. He tripped after rounding third then had to hustle to beat the throw home from shortstop Tommy Field. Belt hit his ninth homer, a two-run shot off Rockies starter Alex White, in the fourth. It was Belts rst splash hit and the 84th overall at the Giants waterfront ballpark. The only player younger than the 23-year-old Belt to reach the waters at ATA&T Park is Sandoval, who did it 12 days shy of his 23rd birthday. Giants hitters have done it a total of 60 times, 35 from home run king Barry Bonds.

SAN FRANCISCO Madison Bumgarner and two relievers combined on a three-hitter, Brandon Belt homered into McCovey Cove and the San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 7-0 on Tuesday night. Conor Gillaspie, making a rare start at third base in place of Pablo Sandoval, hit an inside-the-park home run in the seventh while Brandon Crawford added two hits and an RBI for the Giants, who have won two straight following a four-game losing streak. Thats little consolation for the defending World Series champs, who will still miss the postseason a year after claiming their rst title in 54 years. Giants manager Bruce Bochy juggled his lineup slightly, starting Gillaspie at third and moving Sandoval to rst. It seemed to do the trick. Gillaspie singled and scored on Belts homer in the fourth then

Guillen tweets hes heading to Marlins


MIAMI Ozzie Guillen tweeted Tuesday that he was in town ready to go with the Florida Marlins, and the clubhouse buzz was all about the new manager. One minor holdup: The Marlins had yet to conrm a deal, saving some suspense for the nal day of the regular season Wednesday. But Guillens website eliminated much of the drama by leaking the news he has agreed to become the Marlins manager. A post Monday night quoted Guillen announcing he was Florida bound. The blog was taken down a short time later and replaced by a post that discussed Guillens departure from the Chicago White Sox, while making no mention of the Marlins. On Tuesday afternoon Guillen tweeted: Weird to be in miami in this time but very Ozzie Guillen happy ready to go. That sounded ne to Marlins players. This should be a good thing, catcher John Buck said. Its a step forward. Its a commitment by the team showing we want to win. Part of that is getting a manager who has proven that. Guillens briey posted blog item said he had hoped to spend his entire managerial career with the White Sox, where he won a World Series title in 2005. But there comes a point when you need to move on, and that point has come, he was quoted as saying. The Florida Marlins believe I am the right man for the job to bring another World Series to South Florida. ... I cant tell you how thrilled I am to be a part of the Marlins organization. I have an unbelievable amount of respect for the Marlins, owner Jeffrey Loria, president Larry Beinfest, and general manager Michael Hill. I cant thank them enough for this opportunity and look forward to the future. I cant wait to get started! Florida manager Jack McKeon said Monday he planned to retire at the end of the season. Guillen announced his departure with the White Sox hours later, but said nothing about taking another job. Florida ofcials declined to comment.


Aragon libero Ariel Mangum goes low to dig up a ball during the Donsthree-game sweep of Burlingame.

Continued from page 11
was forced to call a timeout to try and regroup her girls. The move worked, and following a Jamie Moore kill, Aragon was off and running. The Dons tied the game at 10 and took a lead they wouldnt relinquish on the next point, a service ace by Ariel Mangum. Mangums serve gave the Panthers problems the entire game. No. 6 nished with three service aces in Game 1. Burlingame kept it close, tying things up at 20. But Aragon reeled off ve straight points, including a Navarro kill, to take the set 25-20. That (game) was big for us, Gennaro-Tremble said. The kids can do it and I was happy to see them do it because we denitely didnt want to come out and lose the rst game and then have to ght back in the rest of them to beat Burlingame. Taking Game 1 seemed to settle the Dons and prepared them for a Panther team looking to play catch up. In Game 2, it was more of

the same back-and-forth action. Madison McKeever led the way for the Panthers with seven assists, a couple to her sister Morgan. But Aragon captain Stephanie Miller was just as good distributing the rock, getting the likes of Navarro, Moore and Anjali Joshi involved in the attack. Just like in Game 1, the score would be close late, with things tied at 21. But Aragon was stronger down the stretch, taking four of the last ve points to win Game 2. The kids fought hard to come back, Gennaro-Tremble said. And I think they did a good job in having condence, not getting nervous and doing what they had to do. With a 2-0 lead, the Dons took Burlingames best shot in Game 3 and if you thought Game 2 was tight, the last frame was neck-andneck. Starting at 14-all, Game 3 would be tied at eight different times, with Burlingame squandering a couple of game points down the stretch. Aragon would equalize and come 25-25, a hitting error by Burlingame and a thunderous Navarro kill gave the match to the visitors. We wanted to close it out as soon as possible, Navarro said. (Game 3) showed that we really wanted it. itors taking the lead heading into the second OT period. Pratt and the Panthers clamped down on defense and when they needed goals, No. 19 was more than happy to oblige. I denitely have a lot more that I can work on, Pratt said of her game. But I denitely think I improved a lot over the summer. Surprisingly, Pratt takes pride in a different side of her game; one that you might not expect. I denitely like playing defense, she said. Even though I do score a lot, I usually play 2-meter defense on my club team and the only thing I like more than scoring is getting steals. Youre not really expected to make a steal. Its a lot harder to do than getting a shot off and scoring. I really like the defensive side of the game also. As the lone senior on a very young Burlingame team, Pratt has stepped up, and become almost like a second coach in the water. I also think challenging a lot of girls is very important, Pratt said. I like to go up against every girl on the team when were working on releases, presses (in practice). I think its good for them to be challenged because thats what were going to be facing in league. Im just trying to make them stronger. Pratt will take her talents down to Southern California next fall, where shell play for UCLA.

Continued from page 11
Against CCS powerhouse SHP, Pratt found the back of the net four times in a 15-8 loss. The Panthers bounced back nicely against Soquel, winning 9-6. Pratt added three goals there. Shes scored four more in a 12-6 loss to M-A. And against Palo Alto, in a game to decide sixth place, Pratt scored seven of her teams nine goals (11-9 loss). But her play over the weekend was sparked by that game against Willow Glen, in which Pratt was nearly unstoppable. I was really excited to play that game because I didnt play Willow Glen last time because I was injured, Pratt said. (And) rather than play the usual league teams, its fun when you dont really know what to expect. We didnt know anything about them. I dont think they knew anything about us. So I was a little nervous (and) I just wanted to come out strong. Pratt was more like Superman-strong in her effort and the Panthers needed every bit of it to win, with four players ejected from the game due to an accumulation of major penalties. The bout against Willow Glen went into overtime, with the vis-

No.6 Stanford gets back to work

By Antonio Gonzalez

STANFORD Andrew Luck spent the bye weekend stuck on his couch watching so much football that he had to force himself to get outside at one point, if nothing else just to take a break. There wont be many of those for a while. With fall classes beginning this week and sixth-ranked Stanford opening its Pac-12 home slate Saturday night against UCLA, the strong-armed quarterback and Heisman Trophy hopeful will be plenty busy the rest of the season. Not just on the football eld, either. The architecture major said hes taking three classes this quarter: architecture since 1900, urban sustainability and archaic Greek art history. He also is planning to increase his practice regimen to make sure the Cardinal (3-0) stay

perfect. Im sort of sick watching football, to be honest, said Luck, whose beard reformed over the break. I was glued to Andrew Luck the couch for 10 hours. UCLA gures to give him some exercise this week. Luck passed for just 151 yards and two scores against the Bruins (2-2) last season in Stanfords rst win at the Rose Bowl since 1996, although the low productivity by his standards, anyway didnt stop the Cardinal from trouncing their neighbors to the south 35-0. Luck considers his start this season solid but not great, throwing for eight touchdowns and one interception which came on a tipped ball at Duke. He studied lm late last week and ne-tuned his fundamen-

tals on the eld with the other quarterbacks before allowing himself to be a little lazy over the weekend. Even that wasnt all fun. Luck admits he has a hard time watching football without analyzing games, but he certainly tries. So he left his place Saturday night to attend a Stanford womens soccer game while the West Virginia-LSU game was still going even though his father, Oliver, is the athletic director at West Virginia to take advantage of the time off. I love not having school, Luck said, before somebody reminded him he could have been the NFL drafts No. 1 pick already and never had to take a class again. I guess thats true. Jokes on me, right? Not exactly. The Cardinal will be heavily favored for the next four games UCLA, Colorado, at Washington State and back home against Washington before traveling to Southern California on Oct. 29. The

only other major test will be the biggest, hosting Oregon at Stanford Stadium on Nov. 12, and the Cardinal also have a date with struggling Notre Dame. Stanford coach David Shaw tried to take some time away, too, knowing that the bye week although its early will be one of the few opportunities until December to relax. He cooked breakfast for his three children cream of wheat and bacon on Saturday and attended his daughters soccer game, then traveled to a Bay Area high school game for recruiting, took his wife to dinner and ended the night with a local television show. So, no work, right? I was watching lm on my iPad while in transit, he said. Shaw has reason to stay busy. The biggest concern for the new coach is replacing inside linebacker and leading tackler Shayne Skov, who suffered a season-ending left knee injury in a 37-10 victory over

Arizona before the break. Hed also like to improve the red zone offense, which has scored touchdowns on 12 of 16 attempts and made all four eld goals, an output thats efcient by almost any other programs standards. Just not one with Luck. Shaw has been pleased with his quarterbacks play, and Luck believes hes a far better player than the one who led Stanford to a 12-1 record and an Orange Bowl victory over Virginia Tech last season. Shaw likes how Luck is taking less chances, not forcing plays, scrambling well, helping new receivers and leading the offense and the team. He just cant help but want more from such a talent. Hell be the rst to tell you he hasnt played a great game yet, Shaw said. Hes played well. Thats a scary thought for the rest of the Pac-12.

Lawmakers want to unify concussion protocols

By Samantha Henry

NUTLEY, N.J. As awareness continues to grow about sportsrelated concussions among student athletes, two New Jersey lawmakers say its time for schools to start following nationwide protocols governing such injuries. U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez and Rep. Bill Pascrell announced Tuesday that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention agreed to study and develop national guidelines for managing sports-

related concussions for student athletes. Menendez and Pascrell, both New Jersey Democrats, had sponsored legislation, which passed the House but stalled in the Senate, that would have made such protocols mandatory. Several states, including New Jersey, have laws requiring a physicians approval for a student to return to sports, but Pascrell said there needs to be nationwide guidance for schools and youth sports programs to follow. The science may be changing, but thats no excuse for not estab-

lishing a protocol, Pascrell said, referring to differing scientic ndings on concussions. Were close to that for our soldiers, we need to be even closer for our children. Stressing that every concussion is brain damage, Pascrell said 41 percent of student athletes who suffer concussions return to playing too soon, sometimes with serious or even fatal consequences. The CDC will convene a panel of experts to dene the scope of the protocol, review existing literature, review the current state of science on concussions and have protocols

ready for distribution by fall of 2014, according to Pascrell. Sports are a great way for kids and teens to stay healthy and this project will help us continue the important work in traumatic brain injuries in sports and other activities, said Dr. Linda C. Degutis of CDCs National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. CDCs new initiative on pediatric guidelines will work to improve diagnosis and management of brain injuries in younger children and teens who are injured on or off the playing eld. About a dozen states, including

New Jersey, have rules related to concussions and brain injuries among student athletes, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Other states are considering similar measures. Concussions are caused by a blow that forces the head to move violently. They can affect memory, judgment, reexes, speech, balance and muscle coordination and the symptoms become worse if not properly treated. Young people, particularly girls, are more susceptible to long-term repercussions than adults.

Barnhart dropped Castroneves from seventh to 22nd place after he made a pass under yellow. The driver acknowledged his maneuver was illegal but said he shouldve received a one-spot penalty.

a goal from Dylan Babbs, but Mills quickly countered with a goal from Ivan Verbov 13 seconds later. The Bearcats went up 3-1 early in the second period on goals from Shadi Barhoumi and Halet, who red a shot just inside the far left post from about 10 meters. But the Vikings responded with two unanswered Kim goals the second coming when Aaron Ho lost control of the ball as he was on a drive, only to be bailed out by Kim, who corralled it and red it home to tie the match at 3. Halet put the Bearcats up 4-3, but Mills tied it again on a Jonathan Cheung breakaway strike. With time running down in the second quarter, Halet surprised everyone by burying a shot from midpool to put the Bearcats up 5-4 at halftime. In the third quarter, San Mateo lost focus and discipline and Mills took advantage, scoring three unanswered goals on man advantages. Cheungs second goal of the game tied it at 5, Kevin Lee put the Vikings ahead to stay with his goal at the 3:31 mark of the third and Cheung gave Mills a two-goal cushion with 1:08 left in the period. The Vikings pushed their lead to 8-5 with 6:30 left to play when Verbovs shot with the shot clock expiring glanced off the hands of the San Mateo goalie and into the back of the goal. McCall got the Bearcats back to within two, but ran out of time. Were a team in development, Chen said. Were on the cusp of being competitive in league.

INDIANAPOLIS IndyCar ofcials have CSM is coming off yet another one-goal win, this time a 6-5 victory over Santa Rosa last Friday. It was slow and boring, said CSM coach Randy Wright, which is just the way he likes it. I liked the pace of the game. I liked there was zero transition. But we had too many missed shots and too many missed easy shots. Our defense did a good job. Our offense, at times, was anemic. Much like the San Francisco Giants, the Bulldogs have been involved in a number of tight, one-goal games. Which is ne, as long as the Bulldogs are winning them. Theyre exciting for fans, Wright said. But one-goal games can be demoralizing (if you lose). CSM will travel to the Santa Cruz coast Friday to take on a Cabrillo squad the Bulldogs have already beaten once this season by a goal. Wright, however, said he has a bit of surprise for Cabrillo this time around. Weve expanded our offense (since the rst

CSM is looking forward to getting back on the road, considering the last time the Bulldogs were the away team they were smoked by Fresno, 437. The Bulldogs want to get that bad road taste out of their mouths. The only road game weve played was at Fresno and that didnt go very good, Tulloch said. [The question is] can we go over to Chabot and can we bring that same re (weve had the last two weeks)? Everything we look at is through the lens of winning the NorCal (Conference). To win NorCal, we have to play big on the road.

Cross Country
The CSM cross country will host the Crystal Springs invitational Friday at the course in Belmont. The womens race begins at 3:45 p.m., with the mens race going off at 4:30 p.m. It gives us, and all the other teams (competing), a chance to preview the course, which is the site for Nor Cals, said CSM cross country coach Joe Mangan. Because of the nature of the program at CSM, Mangan is always looking to have the team peak at the end of the season. We got a late start with a lot of kids, Mangan said. A lot of kids I have have a lot of stuff going on. Im hoping we put together a good, representative effort (Friday). Will that come to pass? Well see.

Haas selected to Presidents Cup team

By Doug Ferguson

Turns out that sudden-death playoff Bill Haas won at East Lake was worth more than $11.44 million. It earned him a spot in the Presidents Cup. U.S. captain Fred Couples used his two picks Tuesday on Tiger Woods and Haas, who won the Tour Championship for his rst win of the year. Couples took Haas, the son of vice captain Jay Haas, over Keegan Bradley, whose two wins this year include the PGA Championship. International captain Greg Norman took Robert Allenby and Aaron Baddeley, both of whom grew up in Melbourne. He said Allenby was an automatic pick because of his longtime success at Royal Melbourne, while Baddeley made it an easier choice when he tied for third at the Tour Championship.

Bill Haas knew he had to win last week, and he did it, Couples said. I could not leave him off the team after that. When a guy knows that second place ... and hell tell you, second place isnt good enough. And he understood that. Bill Haas He said if Haas had lost the playoff at East Lake and Bradley had nished fourth or fth he wound up tied for 11th then Bradley would have been the pick. Couples said if Steve Stricker cannot play because of an injury, then Bradley would be chosen to replace him. Stricker had an MRI on Tuesday because of weakness in his left arm, although results were not immediately disclosed. Woods was announced as a pick ve weeks ago. Couples thought it was important to let

the rest of the Americans know there would be only one open spot after qualifying ended. Woods, who missed most of the summer with left leg injuries, did not return until August and played only two tournaments, missing the cut in the PGA Championship. He is playing next week at the Open, and will play in the Australian Open the week before the matches.

The Presidents Cup is Nov. 17-20 at Royal Melbourne. Things are going great, Woods said. Were practicing very hard up at The Medalist, and Im playing as much as I possibly can, something that I hadnt done all summer because I hadnt been cleared to do it. Im really looking forward to getting my game rounded for The Presidents Cup.

California bars rejoice: Infused alcohol ban lifted

By Jason Dearen

SAN FRANCISCO In this city famous for food and drink experimentation, so-called craft bartenders have fought for three years to overturn a Prohibition-era state law that banned bars from infusing avors into alcohol. Bartenders, worry no longer. On Wednesday, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law repealing the ban on imbuing alcohol in bars and restaurants with fresh avors. The antiquated law was forgotten until 2008, when the state Department of Alcohol Beverage Control after noticing an increasing number of Bay Area bars infusing booze with their own avors issued an advisory telling its licensees that rectication of distilled spirits at their businesses was illegal. While no bars or restaurants ever received nes or were cited

Fine wine making a hit at baseball parks

By Michelle Locke

Cooking the big banana

heyre sold by the bananas, but they probably belong closer to the potatoes. Because while plantains may resemble bananas, they taste and cook more like a tuber. And in much of the world, thats how these starchy fruit sometimes called a cooking banana are used. In Africa and India, they often are used as the base of stews and curries, much as potatoes would be. In this one-pot dinner from Brazil (inspired by a similar recipe in Leticia Moreinos Schwartz The Brazilian Kitchen), simmered plantains make a delicious base to a chicken curry. They also provide a natural starch that thickens the sauce. When shopping for plantains, look for large, rm fruit. The thick skin can vary from green to yellow to black. Green is unripe, while yellow to black colors indicate the plantains are ready. But be warned even ripe plantains are not pleasant eating when raw. Stick with recipes such as this one for cooking.

Got leftover plantains? They also can be thinly sliced and fried, then dusted with salt, paprika and sugar.


Start to nish: 45 minutes Servings: 4 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks Salt and ground black pepper 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided 1 large yellow onion, diced 2 green bell peppers, cored and cut into chunks 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger 1 tablespoon minced jarred jalapeno slices 2 cups chicken broth 15-ounce can coconut milk 1/4 cup tomato paste 2 bay leaves 3 ripe (skins should be yellow and black) plantains, peeled and cut into 1-

inch chunks 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro Place the chicken in a 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven. Sprinkle it with salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons of the oil. Stir to coat, then cover and set aside for 10 minutes. Set the Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Saute the chicken until lightly browned, about 6 to 8 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the chicken to a bowl. Cover and set aside. Return the Dutch oven to the heat and add the onion and bell peppers. Sauti until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger and jalapenos, then saute for another minute. Return the chicken to the pot, then add the broth, coconut milk, tomato paste and bay leaves. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add the plantains and cook, uncovered, for another 15 minutes, or until the plantains are soft but not mushy. To serve, remove and discard the bay leaves, season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with cilantro.

SAN FRANCISCO Maybe theres no crying in baseball, but that doesnt mean you cant have a good wine. As the World Series approaches, fans of the grape and the great American pastime have more choices than ever with a number of wines, including some high-end vintages, on tap to wash down those hot dogs and Cracker Jack. You certainly nd more wine in a ballpark than you used to, at least the upscale ballparks, says Kevin Reichard, publisher of Ballpark The trend goes hand-in-glove with the general sprucing up of food options at the park. Your hot dogs these days may very well be artisanal sausages grilled before your eyes. At Safeco Field in Seattle you can even get sushi, Reichard points out. Sixth-generation grape-grower Tim Carl of Huge Bear wines is a big supporter of the trend. Huge Bears small-lot wines are sold at Fenway Park in Boston their wines are also at TD Garden, formerly the Boston Garden and home of the NHL Stanley Cup champion Bruins. The folks that are going to these sporting events nowadays arent just looking for standard beer or mass-produced wines. Theyre much more sophisticated from a food and wine standpoint, says Carl. What the parks have been really good at doing is creating great food venues and now theyre coming to realize that there is a real demand for some of these more unique wines. At Aramark, the food and hospitality provider that manages a number of sporting venue concessions, ofcials have been surveying customers to nd out what they want in menus, says Andrew Shipe, vice president of culinary and marketing for Aramark Sports. Five years or so ago, wine was mostly limited to the premium seats. But these days its more likely to be in the main concourse, Shipe says. Aramark, which runs the food and beverage operations at Fenway Park among others, picks its wines carefully, inviting industry insiders to provide a run down on consumer trends and holding intensive tasting sessions. In addition to the usual chardonnays and cabernet sauvignons, theyve recently been adding hot new varieties to wine choices, including malbec, the popular red wine from Argentina, and moscato, a sweeter white wine that has been gaining fans. Theres no huge shift in buying patterns during the playoffs, though sales tend to be more robust and red wines strike it hot during the cooler month of October, says Shipe. AT&T Park in San Francisco has been widely praised for its extensive food and drink offerings and, not surprisingly, has a varied wine list, too. Wines available include Rosenblum zinfandel, Vinum Vineyards chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon and Borgo Magredo prosecco.

ize their health by taking to-go food in reusable bags. We dont want cross-contamination. We dont want dirty bags being used, Peterson said. Missy Johnson, representing the National Retailers Association, reminded the board that hanging suits and jackets t better under plastic bags and bulky items from shops like Home Depot often dont t into traditional paper bags. Johnson also asked to remember the weather. Paper bags dont hold up the way plastic bags do in the rain, she said. Other key considerations yesterday included whether to establish a paper bag use fee and how much and if an ordinance would require a full vetting of the impacts. In July, the state Supreme Court ruled that cities dont need a full environmental impact report before banning the bags. The decision was long awaited by jurisdictions statewide who were considering bag bans but held off on pulling the trigger. The decision struck down an appellate court ruling over a 2008 ordinance in Manhattan Beach that was opposed by a group of bag manufacturers and retailers. The question before the court was whether a ban on singlepany, who helped organize an online petition in support of lifting the ban. To us, its the same thing. The chorus of boos shouted by bar and restaurant owners many of whom did not know the law existed was heard by state Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco. Lenos district includes North Beach and the bayside, where a good chunk of tourism and city nightlife resides. Especially in a down economy, it makes absolutely no sense for the government to be infringing with the creativity of small businesses for no viable public policy reason, Leno said. State alcohol and beverage regulators said the law started with public health in mind. In the days of Prohibition, it was meant to proown family invested in the company. The spot where the lumber yard sits now, about 1.5 acres, used to be a family farm, Massolo said. Despite having several owners over time, the lumber yard has always been a family-run business, he said. The lumber yard has also supported Little League teams in Millbrae since their inception, said Lucille Thurston. The land has been sold but Massolo is not sure what the new owners have in mind for the property. It is in Millbraes Site 1 project area, slated for redevelopment as it sits just west of the use plastic bags requires an EIR. The court unanimously concluded the ordinance would have no signicant environmental effect and Manhattan Beachs initial study and negative declaration were sufcient for the city of 40,000 residents. The ruling freed smaller counties and cities from risking lawsuits by moving forward too soon or shelling out hundreds of thousands of dollars for EIRs that might not be necessary. Cities considering bans include Daly City, San Carlos, Belmont and Foster City. South San Francisco worked around the legal question with a voluntary ban which lets businesses charge customers 5 cents to 10 cents to cover the cost of the single-use bag. The council set a six-month timeline to discuss an outright ban. Millbrae is currently in a 30-day comment period for a bag ban. If enacted, a county ban could serve as a consistent template for the cities the same as with a recent ban on polystyrene products. The goal is to avoid a patchwork of different rules that could lead to confusion or prove challenging to businesses. San Carlos ofcials are very interested in what the county is considering, said Assistant City Manager Brian Moura who did not attend the study session. San Carlos will shortly begin collecting tect consumers from bath-tub gin. It also sought to prevent establishments from adding ingredients that could prove dangerous. Matthew Botting, general counsel for the ABC, said the law was never an issue until recent years, when inspectors noticed the infused alcohol during routine inspections. There were some inspections being conducted, which had nothing to do with this issue, in the Bay Area, where certain questions were asked about What are you doing with this? People were dropping herbs and spices into bottles and displaying them on the bar. It was more of a passing comment than anything else, Botting said. ABC has never cited or ned anyone for this, and has never directed anyone to pour their stuff out. It was a tempest in a teapot, he BART and Caltrain station. The city hopes to one day see a mix of housing and retail on the spot, said Millbrae Councilwoman Gina Papan. Im not sure what the new owner has in mind for the property but hopefully it wont sit vacant for too long, she said. Millbrae Lumber Yard has been part of the fabric of the community, Papan said. It had a steady stream of loyal customers over the decades as its patrons today were brought in by their fathers and grandfathers before who worked in the trades, Massolo said. The lumber yard sells everything needed to


input from the Chamber of Commerce and conducting community outreach efforts for a possible ban, Moura said. Half Moon Bay has held off until the county acts and also wants to avoid a piecemeal approach, said Councilwoman Marina Fraser who attended the hearing. We would like to go hand-in-hand with you with the plastic bag ban in the unincorporated areas, Fraser said. At the very least along the coast we are one giant community [and] we think working with you is the best plan. Menlo Park Vice Mayor Kirsten Keith echoed the sentiment. It saves all the cities doing individual EIRs which are very expensive, she said. If the county moves forward, Tissier suggested a ramping-up period in which businesses can use up their existing inventory and ease into the restrictions, much as it did with the polystyrene ban. Resident Carolyn Chaney, who said she is absolutely thrilled at the prospect, recommended the board keep an ordinance simple and be patient. Even her husband who she categorized as slow to change now uses reusable bags, she said. If he can do it, then we can all do it, she said. said. Yet the warnings were enough to energize bar owners, who were investing their money on the popularity of infused alcoholic drinks. Leno arranged meetings with his constituents and regulators. At rst the ABCs staff defended the law, saying public health was the target of the ban, Leno said. We asked the ABC at the meetings, In all these years you have not been enforcing this law, how many reports of ill health have there been? he said. Not a one they could recount. In the end, ABC ofcials said the law needed to be stricken from the books for them to be able to do anything. They simply couldnt ignore it. build a house and was not hurt by big-box stores such as Home Depot, he said. They actually made us look good, Massolo said about his larger competitors. Business started to decline in 2006 and closing the yard will be sad, he said. Weve been together more as workers than weve spent with our families. We have become a family, he said. The company plans a huge liquidation sale the rst two weeks of October with prices reduced up to 50 percent. For more information visit

wants the county to consider a full environmental impact review. The discussion comes as a state court eased legal requirements on bans and cities look to the county to provide a template. San Mateo County has 7,705 unincorporated retailers that use plastic bags, including those at San Francisco International Airport, said Environmental Health Director Dean Peterson. Before the board jumped into the issue, Peterson laid out plastic bag use by the nationwide numbers 10 percent of all debris washing up on coastlines, 354,000 bags collected on one coastal cleanup day, less than 1 percent recycled. The focus of the hearing, though, was less on the need to reduce bag use and more a discussion of the possible parameters. For example, most existing ordinances exempt plastic bags without handles because they are used to separate out produce. Similar health concerns arose when restaurant representatives and Supervisor Adrienne Tissier questioned if consumers will jeopard-

under the law, owners in San Francisco, where the practice is common and growing quickly, said the fear of nes or revoked liquor licenses stied creativity and a burgeoning new business.

Syrian uprising showing signs of armed rebellion

By Elizabeth A. Kennedy

BEIRUT Once-peaceful Syrian protesters are increasingly taking up arms to ght a six-month military crackdown, frustrated that President Bashar Assad remains in control while more than 2,700 demonstrators are dead, analysts and witnesses say. The growing signs of armed resistance may accelerate the cycle of violence gripping the country by giving the government a pretext to use even greater repower against its opponents. Authorities have already used tanks, snipers and mafia-like gunmen known as shabiha who operate as hired guns for the regime. If peaceful activism on the part of the protesters turns into violent insurgency, the risk of civil war will dramatically increase and the regime will benet and likely go for the kill, Bilal Saab, a Middle East expert at the Monterey Institute of International Studies in California, told the Associated Press. The degree to which Syrian protesters are arming themselves is difcult to quantify because Syria has blocked nearly all outside witnesses to the bloodshed by banning foreign media and restricting local coverage. The stateriddled with bullets and a burned-out security bus in the city last week. Saleh also said gunmen attacked an army force last week, destroying six armored personnel carriers in Homs. Another Homs activist, Majd Saleh, conrmed clashes between Syrian troops and army defectors. The opposition to the government is gradually transforming into more of an armed resistance, said Vali Nasr, a Middle East expert and former Obama administration ofcial in the State Department. The brutality of the regime has become enormous and there is

increasing pressure on people to defend their families and their villages. They clearly have won a moral argument against the government, but physically it doesnt protect them. There is no central call to arms by the opposition, in part because there is no clear leadership in the movement. The Syrian opposition is disparate and fragmented, with various parties vying for power as they see an end to more than 40 years of iron rule by Assad and his late father, Hafez. Still, recent weeks have seen a subtle change in tone. Some Syrians are now calling on protesters to take up arms and inviting foreign military action, hoisting signs that say Where is NATO? and urging the world to come to Syrias aid. The most prominent protest organizers responded swiftly, insisting the movement is entirely peaceful and stressing that the Assad regime will use any violence to justify its ferocious crackdown. While we understand the motivation to take up arms or call for military intervention, we specically reject this position, said a statement last month by the Local Coordination Committees, an activist group with a wide network of sources on the ground across Syria. Militarization would ... erode the moral superiority that has characterized the revolution since its beginning, the statement said. Many activists were hesitant to speak on the record about the armed resistance; others denied it outright. Mohammed Saleh, one of the activists in Homs, blamed the increased violence on drug dealers and smugglers. But the calls to arms appear to be borne of frustration that the revolt has descended into a stalemate, with neither side willing to give in. The protests have continued nearly every day, but the gatherings have lost some momentum in recent weeks.

Typhoon rains flood Philippines, killing 16

By Hrvoje Hranjski and Jim Gomez

MANILA, Philippines Manila residents waded through waist-deep oodwaters and dodged ying debris Tuesday as a powerful typhoon struck the Philippines, killing at least 16 people and sending waves as tall as palm trees crashing over seawalls. Most deaths occurred in metropolitan Manila, which already was soaked by heavy monsoon rains ahead of Typhoon Nesats arrival with more downpours and wind gusts of up to 93 mph (150 kph). Downtown areas

along Manila Bay suffered their worst ooding in decades. Pounding rains obscured the view of anyone on the streets as soldiers and police scrambled to safely evacuate thousands of people in low-lying areas, where rivers and the sea spilled into shanties, hospitals, swanky hotels and even the seaside U.S. Embassy compound. Its ooded everywhere. We dont have a place to go for shelter. Even my motorcycle got filled with water, said motorist Ray Gonzales, one of thousands stranded by fastrising oodwaters.

of Trustees. On Tuesday, the three candidates visited the Daily Journal ofce to discuss the issues as part of the endorsement process. Dealing with the growing number of students while increasing communication to the community topped the concerns for the three candidates. San Carlos has experienced attendance growth in recent years. The district, which is largely comprised of charter schools, previously admitted many out-of-district students as well. School space has been an issue for some time. Over the summer, school and city ofcials began discussing possible solutions like building a new school as a way to handle it. Both Rak and Rosenblatt agreed such a facility is needed. Rak added partnering with the city could mean providing community space such as a theater at a new school. As a result of the space constraints, the district has also revised its policy about admitting students from other areas into San Carlos schools. In fact, few have been admitted over the last four years. Given the space issues, Tzifas simply wanted to be sure local students were given priority. Rosenblatt noted the number of students from out of the district was relatively small. Finances has been an issue for all school districts and San Carlos is no exception. Over the last year, the district and its schools have made an effort to focus on district-wide fundraising rather than raising money for individual schools. All three candidates applauded this effort. By working together and supporting parcel taxes, Rosenblatt explained the district has maintained many services not offered at neighboring schools. Another effort to raise money started in the summer of 2010 when the district started offering SMART-E Camps. Conceptually, the candidates were open to the program. Each had different concerns. Tzifas, for example, struggles with a government agency running an outside program. That being said, he recognized the benet of funds going back

into educational programs. Rosenblatt added the district has made administrative cuts over the years and this is another task for the already lean staff. If funds were to become available, he would like to add administrative staff to better not only the camp program but other district issues like technology. Rak wanted to take a look at the outcomes of the camps such as what were students learning from them. He also was interested in adding opportuniAssociation of Oil Pipelines as well as the Pipeline Safety Trust, a safety advocacy group. The measure is a balanced solution to the very important issue of improving the safety of pipelines, said Martin Edwards, the interstate gas associations top lobbyist. The bills main sponsors Sens. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., the committees chairman, and Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J. have been trying to bring it to the Senate oor for passage by unanimous consent, essentially a voice vote. That requires Democratic and Republican leaders to check with each of their party members for objections. No Democrat objected to the pipeline bill, but initially two Republicans did. They were Paul and Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, industry, safety and congressional ofcials told the Associated Press. Coburn has since withdrawn his objection, but Paul has resisted persuasion to drop his, they said. Ofcials familiar with Pauls objections said he has told lobbyists and company ofcials that hes not opposed to any specic part of the bill, just to the notion of additional federal regulation. The rationale behind the hold is that he came to Congress as a person that doesnt want to provide more regulatory authority to the regulators. He wants to look at those (regulations) and pull back where he can, said Kyle Rogers, a vice president at the American Gas Association. Support for the measure from Kentucky companies hasnt budged Paul. We thought (the bill) provided a reasonable framework and good congressional guidance for the regulators to go ahead and proceed down a path that would enhance pipeline safety over time, said Jerry Morris, president and CEO of

ties for camps before school. Creating early-morning camps, he added, could stagger student dropoff which has been an issue at some sites. When it came to programs, Rosenblatt said the district is always looking for ways to improve. Rak wanted to see the district spend more time incorporating technology into the classroom. Tzifas wanted the focus to be on whats best for the local district. With limited funds, Tzifas called for staying the course rather than adding new programs while working together to ght legislation that adds more work for the school districts small staff. Communication is an area where all three candidates felt the district could improve. Tzifas became involved due to a lack of communication. His home was redistricted just before his daughter entered kindergarten, a decision he wasnt made aware of until after the fact. Tzifas pointed to the situation as an example of when communication failed. Rak wanted to hold more town hall-style meetings where the public could ask questions and engage elected ofcials and staff since a two-way dialogue doesnt often occur at board meetings. Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline Inc. of Owensboro, Ky., who spoke to Paul about the issue during a meeting in Owensboro in June. Industry is eager for Congress to pass a bill this year partly because the federal Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration is already working on new safety rules. Theyd rather Congress provide direction to regulators as to what those rules should look like than leave the matter entirely up to the Obama administration. Don Stewart, a spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, RKy., pointed out that Democrats could still bring the bill to the oor for a vote if they have the 60 votes necessary to clear the procedural hurdles a single lawmaker can erect under Senate rules. McConnell hasnt objected to the use of expedited procedures to pass the bill. But as a practical matter, important but lesser measures like pipeline safety regulations that cant be approved quickly wind up languishing indenitely. If you start down that road you dont have time for anything else, said Norman Ornstein, a congressional scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. Pauls ability to hold up a bill despite its wide, bipartisan support is an indication of how dysfunctional the Senate has become, Ornstein said. An anti-tax activist and ophthalmologist, Paul was elected to the Senate, his rst public ofce, last year. Meanwhile, two House committees have unanimously approved separate pipeline safety bills that are similar to the Senate bill. Differences between those measures are expected to be worked out in the coming weeks, with a single bill brought to the House oor before the end of the year.

industry, that there are gaps in federal safety regulations. Speier called the Senate bill a good start but said it fails to take into account many of the recommendations released this week by the National Transportation Safety Board in its report on San Bruno, such as making sure older pipelines are pressure tested. The Senate bill should serve as a baseline for pipeline safety legislation with room for Congress to go further and embrace the NTSBs recommendations. But Senator Paul wont even allow us to begin that conversation. Senator Paul should stop being an industry apologist and allow the important debate on pipeline safety to proceed, said Speier. The Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee approved the bill in May without opposition. It would authorize more federal safety inspectors, and pipeline companies would have to conrm that their records on how much pressure their pipelines can tolerate are accurate. Under the bill, federal regulators could order that automatic shutoff valves be installed on new pipelines so leaks can be halted sooner. And it directs regulators to determine whether mandatory inspections of aging pipelines in densely populated areas should be expanded to include lines in rural areas. It would be paid for by industry fees. The bill is supported by the industrys major trade associations the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America, the American Gas Association and the
