Developer picked for city’s ‘crown jewel’project
Foster City to negotiate exclusively with consortium of builders for senior housing
By Bill Silverfarb

The Foster City Council voted last night to negotiate exclusively with a consortium of builders to construct affordable senior housing at the vacant 15-acre site adjacent to City Hall, a plot of land the mayor calls the city’s “crown jewel.”

Linda Koelling

The council voted unanimously to negotiate with a group called Foster City Community Partners to build about 450 housing units

on the site, some to be rented and others for sale. Two proposals were on the table, the other from Sares Regis Group of Northern California. Most councilmembers sided with the Community Partners proposal because the units will be more affordable and feature independent and assisted living apartments.

The vote was 4-0, with Councilman Rick Wykoff being absent. Sares Regis had proposed to build on the land years ago in a development called Mirabella that eventually fell through because financing could not be secured. Foster City will now enter into a 60-day exclusive negotiating period

to establish the terms that will govern the development. The council is expected to see the negotiated business terms at its Jan. 3, 2012 meeting. Community Partners will sell townhomes in the $400,000 to $750,000 range. The Sares Regis proposal listed its housing prices

WASHINGTON — A bill to toughen federal safety regulation of oil and gas pipelines passed the Senate late Monday only a few hours after a Republican senator opposed to government regulation dropped his opposition to the measure. The bill is an attempt to close gaps in federal safety regulations exposed by a deadly gas pipeline rupture in San Bruno last year, as well as a spate of other recent gas explosions and oil pipeline spills. It would authorize more federal safety

Under the bill, federal regulators could order that automatic shutoff valves be installed on new pipelines so leaks can be halted sooner. And it

Another Peninsula city has banned the use of polystyrene-based disposable food containers, matching an ordinance already on the books for unincorporated San Mateo County. The Foster City Council approved the ban last night, following the lead of neighboring cities Burlingame, San Bruno, Pacifica, South San Francisco and Millbrae. Belmont and San Carlos are also currently considering such a ban.

Thought for the Day
“Only those ideas that are least truly ours can be adequately expressed in words.”
— Henri Bergson,French philosopher (1859-1941)

This Day in History


The movie musical “West Side Story,” starring Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer, premiered in New York, the film’s setting.

In 1685, King Louis XIV signed the Edict of Fontainebleau, revoking the Edict of Nantes that had established legal toleration of France’s Protestant population, the Huguenots. In 1867, the United States took formal possession of Alaska from Russia. In 1892, the first long-distance telephone line between New York and Chicago was officially opened (it could only handle one call at a time). In 1931, inventor Thomas Alva Edison died in West Orange, N.J., at age 84. In 1944, Soviet troops invaded Czechoslovakia during World War II. In 1962, James D. Watson, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins were honored with the Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology for determining the double-helix molecular structure of DNA. In 1969, the federal government banned artificial sweeteners known as cyclamates because of evidence they caused cancer in laboratory rats. In 1971, the Knapp Commission began public hearings into allegations of corruption in the New York City police department (the witnesses included Frank Serpico). In 1977, West German commandos stormed a hijacked Lufthansa jetliner on the ground in Mogadishu, Somalia, freeing all 86 hostages and killing three of the four hijackers. In 1982, former first lady Bess Truman died at her home in Independence, Mo., at age 97. Ten years ago: CBS News announced that an employee in anchorman Dan Rather’s office had tested positive for skin anthrax. Four disciples of Osama bin Laden were sentenced in New York to life without parole for their roles in the deadly 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa.

Accused Halle Berry stalker ordered to stand trial
LOS ANGELES — A judge ruled Monday that a man charged with stalking Halle Berry should stand trial on two charges filed after he was repeatedly seen on the actress’ property earlier this year. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Melissa Widdifield issued her ruling after Halle Berry hearing from two witnesses called during a preliminary hearing to show some of evidence against Richard A. Franco, who has pleaded not guilty to burglary and stalking charges. He was charged after police arrested him outside Berry’s home in July after he was seen on the property three times in three days. Los Angeles police Detective John Gregozek testified that when Franco was caught, he was carrying a key to Berry’s guesthouse, where the Oscar-winning actress has her beauty salon and some of her wardrobe. Gregozek said Franco apparently obtained the key on July 10, when he entered the house for about 20 seconds after Berry left the salon area to go to her kitchen. Franco was standing outside her kitchen door when Berry spotted him and locked the door and called police. Berry did not attend the hearing, but Gregozek told the judge the actress is still afraid of Franco. The following night, after Berry had hired private security, Franco was seen climbing over the actress’ gate and coming onto her property. Joseph Vach, a retired California Highway Patrol officer, was working as private security and helped detain Franco. The man was carrying a notebook that included references to Berry and entering her home, Vach testified. Franco, who was dressed in a jail jumpsuit, will remain jailed on $150,000 bail, Widdifield ruled. He returns to court on Oct. 31 for arraignment. Berry obtained a civil restraining order against Franco after his arrest. “This person has invaded and trampled upon the most fundamental sense of security I have, and I am extremely frightened of him and what he might do to me or those I love,” she wrote in her July petition. designed to make sure that students don’t miss valuable class time. He says it deters them from using restroom visits as an excuse to miss class. Each teacher gets to decide whether to enforce the policy in their classes. But some students argue that they don’t have time to stop at the restroom otherwise because they only get five minutes between classes.

a 6-acre site located at 1050-1064 Shell Blvd. in Foster City. Splitting the district has been an issue. Residents have questioned whether that move is appropriate, especially if children from San Mateo may end up using the school. On the other hand, the district’s overall bond needs are greater than the new school. A districtwide measure would allow for upgrades at all sites. Two measures could be another option. Options were first discussed earlier this month. At that point, Sarah Stern from TBWB and Brian Godbe from Godbe Research were on hand to discuss the options. Officials could decide to seek a district-wide measure allowing for a lower shared tax rate with larger goals. Alternatively, the board could move to tax only a portion of residents. Also, not out of the question would be two separate taxes. On Thursday, the board will discuss contracting with TBWB and Godbe to determine community support for a bond measure to fund facility and technology needs, according to the staff report. The current $175 million bond was approved by voters in 2008 to help update schools but San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District officials have long said it wouldn’t cover all the needs like updating technology and libraries at all campuses. In addition, growing enrollment in Foster City means the district is looking at construction of another elementary school. Measure L has money to purchase the land but not cover the remaining costs. On Thursday, the board will discuss the possibility of going for an additional bond in 2012. What kind of bond has always been the issue.

School officials to study new bond

Police reports
A person found items belonging to a homeless person in their attic on the 1500 block of South El Camino Real in San Mateo before 10:12 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Meeting student needs may cost more than the $175 million San Mateo and Foster City voters previously gave to local schools which is why district officials will discuss going for another bond in 2012. While early in the discussion process, a new bond effort could include a previous bond effort for a fourth elementary school in Foster City that district officials pulled from the November ballot this summer. Over the last year, the district created a Special Facilities Improvement District made up of Foster City residents and placed a $25 million bond on the November ballot for only Foster City residents — money which would have been used to fund a fourth elementary school’s construction. The board pulled the bond in August, finding the move premature before a possible site had been identified and studied. Since then, the district publicly expressed interest in

A teen accused of fatally stabbing a 15year-old boy who threw rocks at his car from a Redwood City overpass formally began trial yesterday on murder and weapons charges that could send him to prison for life. Luis Adolfo Villa, 20 now but 17 at the time of the 2009 incident, is charged as an adult with murder and the personal use of a knife in the Jan. 3, 2009 death of Matthew Johnson. Another suspect, Luis Herrera, 21, was also arrested in the attack and last November was

sentenced to time served for felony assault. Johnson encountered a group including Villa and Herrera when authorities say the teen and three friends were throwing rocks at vehicles on the 100 block of Franklin Street in Redwood City. One reportedly hit a vehicle carrying Villa and Herrera. The suspects chased Johnson and his friends down the street and allegedly attacked them. Herrera punched Johnson while Villa stabbed him several times, according to prosecutors. Johnson was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Police arrested Herrera at his Hoover Street

home four days later while Villa remained at large. Authorities later found Villa in Mexico and extradited him back to San Mateo County last July. That September a criminal grand jury indicted him on all the charges. On Monday, the case was assigned to Judge Craig Parson and attorneys will begin motions this morning. The trial is estimated by prosecutors to last six weeks. If convicted, Villa faces 16 years to life in prison. Villa remains in custody without bail.

County sweetens approach to wellness
By Michelle Durand

Local Food Day events offer food for thought


Local proponents of creating a healthy, affordable food system will give the community some food for thought through an evening of film and potluck dinner to mark Food Day. The free event next Monday evening is sponsored by the San Mateo Food System Alliance, a countywide collaborative formed in 2006 to promote a sustainable food system, and marks the nationwide grassroots campaign to encourage Americans to “eat real.” The evening will include a series of short films about Pie Ranch, a nonprofit educational farm in Pescadero, and a brief panel discussion on the alliance’s work to promote a sustainable food system. The three films, approximately five to seven minutes each in length, show how local high school students learn about food by baking pie. On a pie-shaped farm, Pie Ranch focuses on three key activities: growing food with sustainable farming practices, educating youth and training future farmers. They also offer apprenticeships for aspiring farmers.

During the panel discussion, alliance members will discuss their efforts to increase access to agricultural land, promote garden-based education in all schools, support sustainable food police, and connect county-grown produce to schools and hospitals. Panelists will include Jered Lawson, executive director of Pie Ranch; Ned Conwell, co-owner of Blue House Farm; Robin Galas, Garden Program Director of the San Mateo County Court and Community Schools; and Cindy McCown of Second Harvest Food Bank. Attendees are also encouraged to bring a dish prepared with a local ingredient for the potluck. The Food Day activities will be held 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Foster City Library, 1000 E. Hillsdale Blvd. Films begin at 6:30 p.m. followed by the panel discussion and question and answer period at 7 p.m. Space is limited and those interested are asked to RSVP by Oct. 19 to Juvy Ann Reyes at or 573-2398. For more information about the event and the alliance contact Nicole Wires or

Soda, consider yourself canned. County officials are trying to sweeten the allure of healthy living of its employees by banning the sale of soda and other sugary beverages from its vending machines and cafeterias and offered at all county-sponsored gatherings. The new rules are part of the county’s recently adopted wellness policy which specifies that tax payer funds cannot be used to buy soda or other beverages sweetened with sugar. “If we want healthy employees, we have to create a healthy environment,” said Supervisor Rose Jacobs Gibson. Gibson said the policy is not only good for the county and its more than 5,000 employees but will also serve as a model for other employers within its jurisdiction. The goal is to make healthy choices easily available — “the preferred and default choice” rather than a challenge, according to the policy. Salad dressings and spreads will automatically be placed on the side, for example. Supervisors and managers are encouraged to hold “walking meetings” and reimburse employees for on-site health and fitness classes. All of the new guidelines and recommendations are part of the policy which also includes goals of physical activity, a tobaccofree lifestyle and controlled health care costs. The county’s efforts to eliminate sugarloaded beverages are in line with other cities, counties and states who have implemented bans on using public funds for the drinks, according to Jacobs Gibson’s office. Sodas and similarly sweetened drinks contribute significantly to the county’s obesity problem — 25 percent of children and 50 percent of adults are overweight or obese — because bodies don’t process liquid calories the same as solid food. Consumers may still feel hungry after ingesting a soda, leading to more calorie consumption and chronic health condi-

tions like diabetes and heart disease. The disease rates will continue to rise in San Mateo County without action, according to Jacobs Gibson. The county created a Wellness Committee in January 2009 to create a draft policy based on feedback by management, employees and others. The Board of Supervisors quietly adopted the policy in April but is publicizing the passage more widely now to coincide with national Food Day on Oct. 24. Food Day is a movement to promote healthy and sustainable eating. Even before the policy’s adoption, it was influencing county requirements for departments and vendors. Last year, the Bay Food Company moved in to the Hall of Justice space that formerly housed the VRS Cafe. The company’s lease agreement requires it to abide by the county’s restrictions on disposal food containers and utensils and a then-pending wellness policy based on current U.S. dietary guidelines. Beverages are limited to 100 percent fruit juice, water, milk, diet sodas, coffee and tea. Pre-packaged food and snacks can have no more than 35 percent total fat, 10 percent saturated fat or 35 percent of total weight composed of sugar. Snacks can also not be more than 200 calories. Prepared food must include at least one healthy option at all times and recipes should be modified so that dressings are on the side, whole grain products are used when possible and sauces should be tomato-based rather than cream, butter or cheese. Portions must also be normal; no super sizing allowed. The changes are being phased in over the next year to allow existing vending contracts to run and so that nutritional analysis can be completed on the prepared foods, said Becky Irwin, legislative aid to Jacobs Gibson. The policy states that employers, like the county, are in a unique position to promote health because workers typically spend more than one-third of their day at the job and eat at least one meal during that time.

State’s green tax breaks in question
By Judy Lin and Brooke Donald

SACRAMENTO — In just a year, a littlenoticed state panel created with bipartisan legislative support worked briskly to authorize $104 million in tax breaks to help “green” companies in California buy equipment and add jobs. But the program was halted last month following the bankruptcy of Solyndra, a Fremont solar company that received $25 million in state tax breaks and, more notoriously, a $528 million federal loan guarantee despite its precarious financial state. The Solyndra debacle is being investigated by Congress. The California program has been frozen to new applicants amid questions about how the recipients were chosen. Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles, sponsored the bill creating the program, which allows qualified companies to waive the state sales tax when purchasing manufacturing equipment in California. He’s holding a hear-

“We want to ask the questions: What happened in the Solyndra example? And could we,should we have done anything different?”

ing Wednesday in Sacramento to answer questions about how recipient companies were vetted and whether the program is spurring job creation and cleaning up the environment or is just giving away taxpayer money. The program, scheduled to run for another decade, could get overhauled. Just as Congress is asking whether the loan guarantee program is worth the risk to Americans, the state is asking if its tax break program is worth the risk to Californians. “We want to ask the questions: What happened in the Solyndra example? And could we, should we have done anything different?” Padilla said. California is one of a few states that require businesses to pay sales tax on manufacturing equipment, which business and manufactur-

ing groups say puts the state at a competitive disadvantage. Then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed Padilla’s bill in March 2010, when he was in the midst of an ambitious push to move California to the forefront in developing clean energy jobs. Padilla’s bill authorized the California Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority to approve sales tax exemptions on the design and manufacture of advanced transportation or alternative energy products. The five-member authority is chaired by state Treasurer Bill Lockyer. Other members include the controller, state finance director, and the heads of the Public Utilities Commission and the Energy Commission.

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Leon Panetta expressed hope Monday that the United States and Iraq can soon reach agreement on a possible U.S. military training role in Iraq beyond Dec. 31, when all American troops are scheduled to depart. Panetta’s remarks contrasted with indications from a senior Obama administration offi-

cial and a senior U.S. military official on Saturday that the U.S. is abandoning plans to keep any troops in Iraq past the year-end withdrawal deadline — other than about 160 troops who would be attached to the U.S. Embassy. Panetta and other top U.S. officials have pressed

the Iraqis for months to decide whether they want a substantial U.S. military training mission in 2012. During his first visit to Baghdad as Pentagon chief in July, Panetta appeared exasperated by the Iraqis, at one point saying, “Damn it, make a decision.” But more recently Obama administration officials have displayed less of a public sense of urgency, while noting that the current U.S. force of about 39,500 troops is on track to shrink to zero by year’s end.

A 22-year-old Redwood City resident accused of having sex with a 13-year-old Belmont girl he met online earlier this year was sentenced to time served on one count of statutory rape. Armando Lopez-Galvez faced between 10 and 12 years in prison and sex offender registration if convicted by a jury of his originally charged counts Armando of lewd and lascivious acts Lopez-Galvez with a minor, unlawful sexual intercourse and oral copulation with a person under 16. Instead, he pleaded no contest to the single count in return for a 308-day jail sentence with credit for time served. He will also spend three years on probation and is barred from having contact with the girl. He is not required to register as a sex offender. Investigation of Lopez-Galvez began in January when officials at the teen’s school noticed suspicious computer activity by her and discovered she was accessing Facebook and online dating sites. After meeting LopezGalvez online, the two allegedly had a sexual relationship. Belmont police said the girl’s parents had no idea of the relationship until police notified them. Lopez-Galvez had been in custody in lieu of $200,000 bail.

Green jobs funding must end
— The Appeal-Democrat

Other voices
Solyndra was one of 33 companies receiving sales-tax exemptions. “We owe it to the taxpayers to see if there is more we can do to make sure we don’t give their money to companies headed for a fall,” Lockyer said. In California, 33 sales tax exemption applications valued at $104 million were approved, $31.4 million of which has been used. No new applications are pending. Closing the barn door after the horses have dashed out isn’t the best solution. But at least California is thinking twice about subsidizing such endeavors. In Washington, more than a year before Solyndra filed for bankruptcy, the Obama administration was aware of the company’s financial troubles, and even provided more tax support after the Department of Energy learned Solyndra was violating its existing loan deal, federal officials have confirmed. A criminal investigation is under way, and two top Solyndra executives, who made 20 trips to the White House while their loan was being considered, invoked the Fifth Amendment rather

California state agency will suspend giving sales-tax exemptions to renewable energy manufacturers in the wake of the scandalous bankruptcy of Solyndra, the Fremont-based maker of solar panels that received a $535 million federal loan guarantee before closing its doors in September. Meanwhile, the federal government just approved another $1 billion in loan guarantees to two other solar companies, despite the Solyndra scandal. Those were imprudent moves. Washington could learn from Sacramento. The state action was urged by California Treasurer Bill Lockyer, chairman of the California Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority. Board members are willing to suspend the program at their Oct. 25 meeting, the treasurer’s office says. It’s commendable that the state realizes taxpayer subsidies of questionable technology are unwise, “in light of recent events,” in Lockyer’s words.


than answer a House committee’s questions. It is incredible that the Energy Department just approved two more loan guarantees worth more than $1 billion for solar energy projects in Nevada and Arizona from the same program that paid Solyndra, just two days before the program expired. The rush to throw taxpayer money at questionable technology is unwise and reeks of special interest pandering. Federal investigators should determine whether laws or regulations were broken. But more fundamentally, the Solyndra fiasco and subsequent developments show that government has no business picking commercial winners and losers, particularly when endeavors are economically nonviable on their own. Some say that when development of a technology or enterprise is risky, the government should take the risk rather than private investors. That’s backward. Government should be a prudent spender of the public’s money. If an endeavor can’t attract private funding, there’s usually a good reason. The government shouldn’t gamble with taxpayer money.

The Safeway that the community built
Editor, We did the right thing. That’s how I feel about the Burlingame community, the hundreds of residents who reacted swiftly more than 12 years ago to a proposal by Safeway to build a massive Costco-like, big-box grocery store at the corner of Primrose and Howard. Today was the unofficial grand opening of a new Safeway store — a store built with valuable input from many sources. During the opening fanfare there were accolades by the mayor for the efforts of the “working group,” her colleagues, the builders and Safeway for making the new store a reality. Certainly, they all deserve our applause. However, we, the residents of Burlingame, must applaud ourselves for voicing our values early in the process and during the many years the process dragged on. After all, if we did not stand up for our values, there would not have been a “stakeholders group,” nor a council and planning commission that denied the original project. We explained how we valued pedestrian access to downtown, our heritage trees and a sensible aesthetic. We offered options developed by professionals and we suggested solutions. We emphasized how we wanted to collaborate for our mutual benefit. Safeway learned that by working together good things can happen and the community learned that they can make a tangible, positive difference by becoming engaged. impact on the morale of people who have to work hard for a pittance in comparison or on the people who have no job at all? On top of that, these paper shufflers are the people who complain the most about having to pay taxes of insane compensation for doing nothing of real value.

Steve, a job creator
Editor, Steve Jobs created jobs the old-fashioned way: He invented and developed things that were made using manpower. No one in his right mind would envy someone like that — someone who made a fortune through hard, honest work, innovation and production of tangible things that people wanted and were willing to pay good money for. Of course he paid taxes, lots of them, but never complained about his monetary contribution to a society that made him rich by buying his products. Contrast him to the paper shufflers on Wall Street, who do not create or produce anything of real value. Instead, they are paid insane salaries and obscene bonuses for making phantom transactions with virtual money, and sucking up real money that they siphon off for themselves. What is the social value of what they are doing? What is the damage to the economy and jobs, and what is the

The role and goal of government
The role and goal of government (at all levels) should be to make prudent policy decisions, establish beneficial public institutions and provide equitable social services that allow individuals to lead decent lives. There are various ideologies and many ideas regarding how to accomplish this objective; however, if we can all agree that this is a noble end, we can then incorporate the best parts of everyone’s ideas into the means by which we achieve it. Partisan politics has not succeeded in this objective and it is time for a pragmatic approach to governing and serving the common good.

came for the wine. After years of sitting through hours, days even, of public hearings and votes on the design of a new Safeway grocery store in Burlingame, I felt a bit entitled frankly to attend last week’s opening gala of the business. Wine and cheese, the celebration promised although it also delivered cheesecake, spring rolls, chips and awesome crab wasabi shooters that while delicious were impossible to eat in any dignified way while simultaneously balancing a Safeway-etched glass and plastic appetizer platter. While the food and the company of the fellow journalist who now covers Burlingame for the Daily Journal drew me to the shindig — and mind you this was before getting my grubby little hands on the swag bag of granola and lemon madeleines and winning a free spaghetti strainer/measurer from US Bank — what struck me most, as the rock cover band played near one register and rows of cooked rotisserie chickens beckoned, was the sense of finality and hope. Finality because I never thought this day would come. The battle over Safeway was, I think, roughly a good five years or so in when I joined the Daily Journal and dove head first into Spinelli plan and Citizens for a Better Burlingame. Actually, I remember when that group formed and I certainly knew the plans. I could repeat the proposed square footage and debate over whether to attach Walgreens or keep it a freestanding building in my sleep. Story poles, orange netting, the whole works. I recall vividly, too, sitting with Safeway representatives in a storage room as they showed me mock ups and explained the need for a new store to replace the small, outdated building in which we sat. Halfway through the presentation the power died and we had to grope our way out to the light of the ground floor. Point made, perhaps. Then there was the Planning Commission, culminating with a three-night marathon meeting which broke my spirit and desire to continue covering Burlingame. I was young and less jaded, perhaps. One night an attendee told me there should never be a new Safeway because, and I paraphrase, the Native American spirits in which she was in contact said so. Of course. What need do ghosts have with fresh produce and prepared side dishes? One commissioner told the crowd there was a need for more product diversity in a bigger store. More brands of peanut butter, he said. By the way, the new store has 11 different brands, although there are variations like organic and chunky within that total. Yes, I counted. I actually felt bad for the woman who wandered down the aisle as my cohort and I did a visual check. She probably thought we were doing something more exciting and looked a little off-put upon realizing we were only chalking up toast spreads while sipping on pinot. The city officials I spoke with that night often laughed when I queried whether they ever thought this day would come. They more than anybody knew the amount of time spent, the frustration, the petitions, the letters to the editors. Former councilwoman Rosalie O’Mahoney told me she sometimes secondguessed voting no but was then touched when constituents would thank her for the stance. You never know. But standing in the spanking new store, she lauded its layout, its beautiful salmon displays, the portobello mushrooms so much bigger than the offerings at the San Mateo store. Even the Safeway vice president got a nod of approval. Suddenly everybody was happy. Even members of the various community groups who refused to budge with every Safeway plan grudgingly admitted its appeal while nibbling on appetizers. The waterfall could be better, one said. The rooftop parking — who knows? The plan is awfully similar to those early alternatives drawn up. And finally, it’s the best compromise it could be. In the end, aren’t nearly all projects a matter of compromise? And so standing in the Howard Avenue store, I felt hope — hope that some day I might see a similar completion to the other developments and proposals that keep journalists and concerned citizens alike busy. Artificial turf down in San Carlos finally made it onto a playing field. Bay Meadows finally saw its last race, making room for housing and retail. Could the 15-acre site in Foster City or the Cargill Saltworks site be far behind? And the new county jail — suffice to say plans for that structure are far from set in stone or unanimously embraced. High-speed rail — maybe I’ll still be standing when that issue gets settled but I’m not holding my breath. Yet, like I said, Safeway offered up a little hope along with the boneless wings and steak skewers. If that project can be finished, just about anything can be. And if the disparate groups involved in that debate can find common ground after years of pointed fingers and loud complaint, compromise isn’t out of the question for other pending blueprints. Yep, I headed to Safeway expecting some whine, er, wine. Instead, I ended up toasting the lack of it.

Wall Street
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index lost 23.72, or 1.9 percent, to 1,200.86. All 10 industry groups in the S&P 500 were lower. Banks fell the most, 3.3 percent. A batch of weak corporate earnings reports also pulled stocks lower. Gannett Co. Inc. plunged 8 percent, the most of any stock in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index, after the newspaper publisher reported a drop in advertising. Wells Fargo sank 8.4 percent after posting results that fell short of analysts’ expectations. The Nasdaq composite index fell 52.93, or 2 percent, to 2,614.92. Stock markets around the world rallied last week after the leaders of France and Germany pledged to come up with a far-reaching solution to the region’s debt crisis by the end of October. That pledge appeared to be pushed back by German officials Monday. Schaeuble said he expects European leaders to adopt a general framework to tackle the crisis on Sunday. Separately, a spokesman for German Chancellor Angela Merkel said discussions on how to solve Europe’s debt problems will likely last into the new year.

NEW YORK — A week ago, markets were soaring on hopes that a fix for Europe’s debt crisis was near. On Monday, stocks had their worst drop in two weeks after German leaders cast doubt on how fast that process would be. Expectations that a resolution to the crisis could be reached at a European summit in Brussels Oct. 23 helped lift the S&P 500 index to its biggest gain in two years last week. Germany’s finance chief Wolfgang Schaeuble said Monday that those expectations were too optimistic. It was the worst day for U.S. stock indexes since Oct. 3, when each hit a low for the year. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 247.49 points, or 2.1 percent, to close at 11,397. Alcoa Inc. led the Dow lower with a 6.6 percent decline. “It’s completely a reaction to Germany,” said Jason Pride, the director of investment strategy at Glenmede, a wealth management firm in Philadelphia. “The reality is everybody is hanging on to what Europe’s doing.”

IBM revenue falls short
By Jordan Robertson

SAN FRANCISCO — IBM again demonstrated its skill at wringing profit from its software and services juggernauts. The success of those divisions has made IBM Corp. one of the most-copied technology companies. It was a key reason that IBM beat analysts’ net income forecasts for the third quarter and raised its earnings outlook for the full year. Neither was surprising for a company that rarely lets down its Wall Street constituents. But some investors were left with a

more unflattering impression from a different and unexpected part of IBM’s report Monday. IBM’s revenue narrowly missed the average forecast, reviving questions about the company’s ability to bring in enough new business to fuel its expected growth. Global companies such as IBM face dangers on multiple fronts as the American economy struggles, debt fears threaten Europe and even some hot emerging markets show signs of cooling off. Sales to corporations and government agencies are at the heart of IBM’s business model. But some fear that they may spend less on IBM products and

services if demand for their products stays depressed and government budget woes continue. The revenue miss apparently fed those fears and helped drive down IBM’s stock price $7.32, or 3.9 percent, to $179.27 after the results came out. The shares had ended regular trading Monday down $3.94, or 2.1 percent, at $186.59 on a weak day for the market overall. Most of the questions on IBM’s conference call with analysts covered macroeconomic concerns. But some of the share price decline likely was caused by investors cashing in on recent gains. IBM’s stock hit its 52-week high on Friday on expectations about the results.

Yahoo’s 3Q earnings may shed light on CEO firing
By Michael Liedtke

SAN FRANCISCO — Yahoo’s thirdquarter earnings report may shed some light on why the Internet company abruptly fired Carol Bartz as CEO last month. The numbers, due out after the stock market closes Tuesday, are unlikely to be

impressive, considering that Bartz was unceremoniously sacked in a phone call from Yahoo Inc. Chairman Roy Bostock on Sept. 6. Another lackluster quarter might not be viewed negatively by many investors. That’s because Yahoo is now seen as a likely takeover target. The company may be more receptive to bidders if it looks like it can’t revive its revenue growth —

and lift its stock price — on its own. Bartz spent 2 1/2 years trying to engineer a turnaround, with little success. Her biggest achievement was cutting Yahoo’s expenses to the point that the company began to make more money. Those improvements occurred even as the company’s revenue continued to slide while more online advertising shifted to rivals Google Inc. and Facebook.

Apple sells 4M-plus new iPhone models in three days

NEW YORK — Apple Inc. on Monday said it sold more than 4 million units of the new iPhone model in three days — meaning it’s selling more than twice as fast as the previous model did when it launched last year.

Apple and its phone company partners started selling the iPhone 4S on Friday in the U.S., Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and Britain. They are coming to 22 more countries by the end of the month. When Apple launched the iPhone 4 last year, it sold 1.7 million in the

first three days. There are two more launch countries than last year, and there are also more phone companies that sell the phone.

Ten locations were closed Sunday; the other 10 will close in a month. They include three closings in New Hampshire and two each in California, Illinois and Maine. Before the closures, Lowe’s operated 1,725 stores. Lowe’s, based in Mooresville, N.C., also said it will only open 10 to 15 stores in North America annually beginning in 2012. Previously the company expected to open 30 stores per year. It will open 25 stores this year.

Half Moon Bay surprising Ocean Division leader
By Nathan Mollat

As Aragon, Menlo School, South City and Woodside all went through non-league play undefeated, and Sequoia suffering only one loss, debate raged over which was the favorite to win the Peninsula Athletic League’s Ocean Division title. Half Moon Bay, which was only 1-3 during

nonleague, was not even part of the conversation. But while the rest of the division was fattening up mostly inferior opponents, the Cougars were playing arguably the toughest schedule of the group. Don’t look now, but guess who is atop the Ocean Division standings? Half Moon Bay improved to 2-0 in Ocean Division play following a 26-21 win over Menlo — a game better than Aragon, Sequoia, South City and Woodside, and

two clear of Menlo School. Half Moon Bay opened Ocean Division play by handing Woodside a 48-21 loss, its first of the season. Half Moon Bay coach Matt Ballard wasn’t sure, however, how much going 1-3 against still competition helped his squad. “Who knows?” Ballard said. “I see all those (other Ocean Division) teams are doing really

well. They all have good coaching staffs. “In the back of my mind, we plan a (nonleague) schedule (to prepare) for the Ocean, which is a really tough league. Other than Homestead, who handed it to us pretty good, we were in all our games.” Since entering Ocean Division play, however, the Cougars have gotten better on both sides of the

Kicking as a weapon
he NFL changed its kickoff rule this season, moving kickoffs up five yards to the 35, with the hopes of reducing the chance of serious injury on kickoff returns, as the powers-that-be concluded the move would result in more touchbacks. Turns out, they were wrong. But seeing the number of kicks into the end zone must have inspired high school kickers because never have I’ve seen more touchbacks in games than I have this year. At least I don’t think I have. I don’t have any hard, scientific evidence to back up my theory, it just seems like there have been far more touchbacks than in the past. It used to be the kicking chores fell to the player who could kick the ball consistently. It wasn’t unheard of to see a linebacker lining up to kick the ball. Now, as teams spend more quality time on special teams and with players being more adept at it, kickoffs at the beginning of the game, to start the second half and following scores seem to be flying into the end zone with greater frequency. And unlike the pro game where the ball can be run out of the end zone, in high school, once the ball cross the goal line, it’s an automatic touchback and can’t be returned. High school football also kicks off five yards further up field than the NFL, kicking from the 40. “If you would ask any coach in America if they would want their kicker to kick the ball into the end zone, they would do it every single time,” said Aragon coach Steve Sell, who has one of the best in Peninsula Athletic League in junior Aldo Severson. Severson, along with Sequoia’s Matt Jenkins and Menlo-Atherton’s Sam Falkenhagen, are among the best in the PAL at forcing opponents to start drives at their own 20-yard line. “To make a team go 80 yards (for a score), that’s hard,” Sell said. In looking at the games I’ve personally covered this season — 12 — I’ve seen 106 kickoffs. Thirty of them, or 28 percent, went for touchbacks. In his team’s game against Aragon two weeks ago, Sequoia’s Jenkins hit



San Francisco’s first-year coach Jim Harbaugh has intensity and emotion that is rubbing off on his 49ers team.

Emotions running high
By Janie McCauley

SANTA CLARA — Jim Harbaugh’s aggressive, second-long handshake with Lions coach Jim Schwartz and accompanying back slap have talk radio all atwitter, and Twitter, too. And, boy, were his 49ers players entertained by it all. San Francisco’s emotional first-year coach is winning, and celebrating the team’s turnaround in his unique style — even if he rubs people the wrong way in the process. The Niners are 5-1 heading into their bye week after a 25-19 victory over the previously unbeaten Lions. “We’re not here today to throw any salvos.

There’s not going to be any salvos coming out of the West Coast,” Harbaugh said Monday. Harbaugh spoke to NFL Executive Vice President Ray Anderson and vowed to improve his own postgame behavior. The NFL announced neither coach would be fined for their altercation at the end of the game. Still, Harbaugh doesn’t plan to say sorry. “Personally I can get better at the postgame handshake and we’ll attempt to do that,” Harbaugh said. “I don’t think that there’s any reason for an apology. We spoke about it after the game, and at some point we will talk in private. Apologies always seem to me like excuses.” Harbaugh insisted before the trip back to

Michigan, where he starred in Ann Arbor for the Wolverines, that he has no friends. He probably didn’t make any at Ford Field. On Monday, the coach said he is unconcerned about whether coaches like him or not, saying, “Mostly we care about our team and what they think of our team.” His team appreciates the loyalty and hardnosed approach. Always. “It’s something you don’t see every game. As a player, I was kind of pumped up about it,” left tackle Joe Staley said, chuckling. “They weren’t fighting, they were just getting after it. It’s an intense game and football is an intense sport

Factors converged in crash that killed Dan Wheldon
By Jenna Fryer

The perfect storm: A high-banked oval crowded with the largest field of the season. Inexperienced or impatient drivers racing at more than 220 mph. Absolutely no room for error. What was supposed to be a season-ending showdown at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Dan Wheldon

became instead a script for disaster Sunday: a fiery 15-car crash that killed popular two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon and left the shaken auto racing community to deal with uncomfortable questions. The drivers knew the

Las Vegas race was going to present challenges even before the season began. The sleek, open-wheel machines of IndyCar had not raced at the track since 2000, and the now-defunct Champ Car Series was last there in 2005. Some of the drivers had been there before, but many had not. None had raced an IndyCar there since the track’s 2006 reconfiguration added “progressive banking” designed to increase side-by-side racing.

So there was some initial fretting when second-year IndyCar chairman Randy Bernard announced a $5 million payday to any moonlighting driver who could win the race. Bernard had hoped to land a superstar or two from the fender-rubbing NASCAR circuit. Maybe even former Indianapolis 500 winner Juan Pablo Montoya.

everything that’s out there, what best fits us,” Jackson said. “You’ve got to have somebody that can kind of hit the ground running, whether the guy can be a starter or the guy can be a backup because if not, it’s going to take two or three weeks, or four to get ingrained in the system and you’ve fallen behind.” The injury spoiled what had been looking like a breakthrough season for Campbell. After bouncing between coordinators for most of his career, Campbell finally got a chance to play a second year in Jackson’s offense and was making the most of it. He had completed 60.6 percent of his passes for 1,170 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions for a passer rating of 84.2. Campbell was in the final year of his contract, raising questions about his future in Oakland if he is not able to come back this season. “It’s tough, because the guy worked so hard in the offseason, preparing himself and spending so much time with his teammates,” Jackson said. “But that’s the nature of this game. I think the players, when they play it, they understand that. None of us like it, I don’t like it, but we’re not going to worry about it. This team is going to win.” There’s a good chance they will have to do it this week against Kansas City with Boller under center. Boller, a first-round pick by Baltimore in 2003, has not started a game in the NFL since 2009 with St. Louis. He has spent the past two years as a backup in Oakland, completing 10 of 18 passes for 125 yards and an interception. Boller started 34 games over his first three seasons with the Ravens but has mostly been a backup the past six years. Now he’s getting another chance to start with a team that has some talented playmakers on offense and legitimate hopes of competing in the AFC West. “I feel good about Kyle, that’s why he’s here,” Jackson said. Boller was just 8 of 14 for 100 yards on Sunday, missing some targets badly as he took a while to find his rhythm after getting so little work in practice the past six weeks.


Raiders QB to have surgery Sharks are scuffling

Ducks 3, Sharks 2
including a 1-0 victory over the Sharks on Friday. Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Brent Burns scored for San Jose, which has lost three straight since a season-opening win. Antti Niemi was sharp at times, making 19 saves. The Sharks goalie missed training camp and the start of the season after having a cyst removed from near his knee.

ALAMEDA — Jason Campbell was set to have surgery on his broken collarbone, Kyle Boller prepared to take over as the starting quarterback in Oakland and coach Hue Jackson was searching for another quarterback who can either supplant Boller or serve as a backup. “If you’re a quarterback out there and you want to come play for the Raiders give us a call,” Jackson said Monday. The Raiders have lost Campbell for a significant period of time to the broken collarbone suffered when he landed on his shoulder at the end of a scramble late in the first half against Cleveland on Sunday. Campbell hopes to recover in time to play down the stretch for the Raiders this Jason season but Oakland needs Campbell help now with Boller and rookie Terrelle Pryor the only quarterbacks on the roster. “It was a tough break,” Campbell said. “I’m going to stay positive. If everything goes right I could be back in six weeks.” The Raiders have looked into possible trades and free agent signings, although one possible option was eliminated Monday. Oakland contacted former Jacksonville quarterback David Garrard, but Garrard’s agent confirmed a Fox Sports report that the quarterback will need back surgery and would not be available for four to six weeks. Other free-agent possibilities include Trent Edwards, who was in Oakland’s camp this summer; Charlie Frye, who spent the past two seasons with the Raiders; and former Baltimore quarterbacks Troy Smith and Todd Bouman, who have worked with Jackson on the Ravens. Oakland also could look into making a trade for Cincinnati’s Carson Palmer or Denver’s Kyle Orton before Tuesday’s deadline. “You just kind of rattle all the trees and see

SAN JOSE — Teemu Selanne scored a pair of first-period goals and the Anaheim Ducks held off the San Jose Sharks 3-2 on Monday night in their best start since their Stanley Cup-winning season five years ago. Corey Perry, last season's NHL MVP, scored for the second straight day as the Ducks won their fourth straight. In his first start of the season, Dan Ellis made 41 saves. Anaheim has won three times in four days,

Premier League to end relegation?

LONDON — Some of the Premier League’s foreign owners want to abolish the relegation and promotion system, a senior English soccer executive said Monday. With half the Premier League’s 20 clubs under foreign ownership, League Managers’ Association chief executive Richard Bevan said many owners would like to emulate the American system, where the major professional sports leagues have no relegation. if more teams are sold to overseas investors they could force a dramatic change to the rules. “There are a number of overseas-owned clubs already talking about bringing about the avoidance of promotion and relegation in the Premier League,” Bevan said at the Professional Players Federation conference in London. “If we have four or five more new owners, that could happen.” Forcing any change requires support from 14 of the league’s 20 clubs. Even then, The Football Association must approve. League rules state the FA’s consent is needed for “the making and adoption of or any amendment to ... promotion to and relegation from the league.” “Certainly you’ll find that with American owners and you’ll find that with some of the Asian owners (they have been talking about scrapping relegation),” Bevan said on the sidelines of the conference. Arsenal, Aston Villa, Liverpool, Manchester United and Sunderland are owned by Americans, while Blackburn is under Indian ownership and Queens Park Rangers has Malaysian backers. United manager Alex Ferguson said he supported the current system in which the three bottom clubs drop from the top tier to the Championship, while three clubs are promoted from the second tier to the Premier League. “You may as well lock the doors (without relegation),” said Ferguson, whose club is owned by the Glazer family. “It would be absolute sui-

cide for the rest of the teams in the country, particularly the Championship.” The Villa board headed by Randy Lerner, who also owns NFL’s Cleveland Browns, was “confused and surprised” by Bevan’s remarks. “If he intended this group to specifically include Aston Villa, as could be inferred by his comments, then we would ask him to confirm as much,” the club’s board said. But Bevan said “particularly American owners without doubt” have been looking at a system without relegation. “Obviously if I was an American owner and I owned a football club or I was an Indian owner I might be thinking I would like to see no promotion or relegation, my investment is going to be safer and my shares are going to go up in value.” Stoke chairman Peter Coates, one of just 10 English owners in the top tier, warned of the dangers of scrapping the “lifeblood of our game.” “I’d be horrified to think that was someone’s long-term agenda,” Coates told The Associated Press. “Although it happens in America with franchises, our traditions are totally different. ... It would be an absolutely unthinkable thing.” The issue has not been publicly raised at a meeting of clubs since 2009 when Bolton chairman Phil Gartside proposed a 38-team Premier League split into two divisions. If Premier League owners tried to abolish the ability of lower-tier teams to rise into the elite, they would meet opposition from Europe’s soccer and political institutions. Since becoming UEFA president in 2007, Michel Platini has made good relations with the 27-nation European Union a priority to help ensure that the EU protects soccer’s right to govern its own affairs. UEFA has highlighted promotion and relegation among its core values in the “European sports model.”

Sports brief
Financially struggling UFL to cut season short
OMAHA, Neb. — The struggling United Football League is cutting its season short, moving up its championship game to Friday. UFL founder and owner Bill Hambrecht said in a statement Monday that the league would turn its focus to “building a blueprint for the long-term success of the

league” and that there were plans to expand from four to six teams in 2012. Each team has played four of its six regular-season games in a league that has lost more than $100 million the last two years. The Las Vegas Locos (3-1) will visit the Virginia Destroyers (3-1) in the championship game. The Sacramento Mountain Lions (1-3) will visit the Omaha Nighthawks (1-3) on Friday in what the league calls the consolation game. Commissioner Michael Huyghue did not immediately return a phone message.

The league is made up of players who were cut in NFL training camps, veterans who want to get back to the NFL and free agents. Players are paid $5,000 a game. Eliminating the final two weeks of the regular season will save the league the cost of salaries and team operations. The UFL has unpaid bills totaling in the millions of dollars in its franchise cities. “This strategy of moving straight to the championship game is the best means by which to take the UFL forward,” Hambrecht said.

with him and for him,” Ballard said. “He gives you an extra coach on the field. … We can count on him to do the right thing.” The Cougars schedule is about to get a lot more tough. They finish division play with games against South City, Sequoia and Aragon (a combined 14-4 overall), before ending the regular season against rival — and Bay Division power — Terra Nova. Ballard, however, won’t get caught up in the rest of the season. His focus is on Friday’s game against South City. Adding to the game is the fact that this week is homecoming for Half Moon Bay. “We try not to look past one game. Looking at the big picture doesn’t help us,” Ballard said. “We’re still trying to progress. We can never really rest. We have to play at a high emotional level, emphasize the basics against teams that out-size us and out-speed us. “It goes back to focusing on things we control. We have to have a game plan, we have to lock it in. We have to hustle every week.” like other kickers do, let’s just say Severson goes with an unscientific approach. “I just go back a certain distance so everything flows into the kick,” Severson said. While Sell gives credit to Severson’s athletic ability to put the ball in the end zone, he also admits the team spends more time on it in practice as well. “It’s certainly a point of emphasis,” Sell said. “Back in the day, you didn’t have a coach for special teams. Now, [teams] are putting more time into it. “The quality of the return schemes are better. If you don’t kick it high and deep, there’s a good chance it can be returned (for a big play).”

ball. In two games, they have a division-leading 37 points per game average, while their 21 points allowed is also tops in the Ocean. More so than the wins, Ballard is most proud of his team for dealing with adversity and moving forward. Even losing two senior starters to knee injuries haven’t caused the Cougars to take a step back. “I’ve been proud of the character we’ve shown,” Ballard said. “It was tough in the beginning. 1-3 is tough to deal with. In almost every game, we’ve been behind. Hopefully what we’ve learned is to have short-term memory and move on to the next play.” Running back Wes Walters is emerging as one of the top backs in the entire PAL.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — For a team in turmoil, this was one therapeutic win. It certainly wasn’t pretty or convincing. But it did the job for Rex Ryan and his feuding New York Jets. Darrelle Revis ran back the first of his two interceptions 100 yards for a touchdown and the Jets did just enough to beat the winless Miami Dolphins 24-6 on Monday night and end a three-game losing streak. Mark Sanchez threw a 38-yard touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes and ran for another score as the Jets — who called this a “mustwin” game — capped a tough week by pulling out a victory and sending the Dolphins to their fifth straight loss. With the losses mounting and the season already on the brink of spinning out of control for the Jets (3-3), they traded wide receiver Derrick Mason to Houston and then had to deal with some infighting as Holmes called out the offensive line for not giving Sanchez enough time to throw deep. Right guard Brandon Moore fired back, saying those comments could have a “fragmenting effect” and were not what a captain, which Holmes is, should do. Ryan, who insisted his team’s Super Bowl hopes would not be undone by locker room disharmony, even sent Holmes and Moore out as the captains for the pregame coin toss.

six touchdowns. “He had a bunch of good runs last year. He was just overshadowed by Dominic (Sena, 2010 Daily Journal Football Player of the Year),” Ballard said. “He’s always had the ability. … It’s not foreign to him. … I think we always knew he was good and we expect that (type of performance) from him. It’s also the surrounding cast that has stepped up as well.” Add in three-year starter Nate Seaton at quarterback and the Cougars have the leadership necessary to win a league title. “I think he’s taken it (that leadership role) a little more. He was the leader last year. He’s doing a great job with that.” Seaton doesn’t have the eye-popping stats as a quarterback would in the offense du jour — the spread. Ballard is old-school, meaning he used a physical ground attack for success. Seaton, however, brings that special something to the Cougars. “It’s the intangibles of players wanting to play down this season). In those games, Severson has kicked off 30 times, 13 of which resulted in touchbacks, good for 43 percent. “Last year (playing frosh-soph) I was able to get inside the 10 consistently,” Severson said, who added he’s a bit bigger and a bit stronger this season, which gives him extra distance. It’s not like Severson has spent a lifetime honing his football kicking skills. A longtime soccer player, last year was Severson’s first playing football. As such, he was the logical choice to be the Dons’ frosh-soph kicker. “They (the coaching staff) figured I was the only soccer player on the team so I should be the kicker,” Severson said. Severson did say that his soccer background definitely has helped his football kicking game, saying it’s the same basic motion and form he uses to kick a soccer ball. As for his ability to to step off his approach

four of his six kickoffs into the end zone. The other two were onside kicks as the Cherokees rallied for a 32-28 win. Against Burlingame last week, Falkenhagen had only one kickoff go for a touchback, but he had three others that were taken at the goal line and one other kick started at the M-A 20 because the Bears’ quarterback was sacked in the end zone for a safety, which meant M-A had to kick. Falkenhagen still boomed the kick 50 yards. Severson, however, had been among the most consistent.

taken the focus off their monumental victory. “He’s a competitor,” said tight end Delanie Walker, who scored the go-ahead touchdown with 1:56 left. “And that shows a lot, you know. He was very emotional. It was a big win, we overcame a whole lot in the game and he kinda felt that — you know, he didn’t play, but he coached the game. So I could see him acting the way he acted. Really wasn’t no big thing, it was just a rough handshake, and I think it got carried out of proportion. But, you know, when he got in the locker room he talked about it, he wished it never happened because he didn’t want to take away from our win.” Quarterback Alex Smith spent the moments after the game ended talking to former 49ers QB Shaun Hill, along with Staley. They all hugged. “We had a slightly less physical handshake,” Smith joked. “This team loves and appreciates the fact that our coach is fiery and a competitor. We like that. I don’t think any of us hold that against him for what happened.” Schwartz on Monday said he regretted the incident, in which he chased down Harbaugh after the infamous postgame semi-greeting but was held back by play-

But nobody bit, despite interest from NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne, X-Games star Travis Pastrana and former CART champion Alex Zanardi. “Hopefully they’ll pick someone competent enough to drive those things because it is an IndyCar,” Penske driver Will Power said shortly after the prize was announced. “You can’t rub panels. You rub wheels, and someone’s going flying.” Kahne said Monday that team owner Rick Hendrick was against his participation, and Hendrick confirmed it. Kahne’s lack of experience in an IndyCar made it virtually impossible for him to win. “The upside is winning that big purse, but it’s not realistic to think you can go out there and beat the drivers who run the series full time,” Hendrick said. “They’re incredibly talented, and it would be a significant investment of time and resources to be competitive. You’d have to test and practice, and it would inevitably take focus away from what you’re trying to do (in NASCAR). That left only Wheldon, winner of 14 races on ovals in IndyCar, including the Indy 500 in May, to be eligible for the $5 million prize. Bernard made that ruling because the 33-year-old Englishman lost his job at the end of last season, put together a one-race deal for the Indy 500 and had turned down offers from less-competitive teams. Wheldon put together a deal with Sam Schmidt Motorsports to race two weeks ago at Kentucky and for the prize on Sunday. “He wanted to do it in the worst way,” an emotional Bernard said Monday. A lot of other drivers wanted to be in the race, too. Interest in the final race, which Bernard had worked tirelessly to create, had risen enough that sponsors wanted to get involved. Because IndyCar is in the final year of racing its current car design, teams had expendable inventory. It led to 34 entries in the field. That’s one car more than the Indy 500, five more than the race two weeks ago at Kentucky, and eight more than IndyCar had in Japan last month. Who were these new drivers? Men and women without much experience at IndyCar’s top level. It was the fourth start for Wade Cunningham, who was in the thick of the action where the accident started. It was the third career start for Pippa Mann and the 20th for JR Hildebrand, who both spent Sunday night in a Las Vegas hospital recovering from injuries suffered in the accident. At least six drivers didn’t have enough starts to complete a full season, and some of the veterans had raced only a handful of times this season. They all turn out for the Indy 500, too, and the speeds on that oval are faster than they were at Las Vegas. But Indianapolis is a relatively flat track, is a mile longer than Las Vegas, and drivers have three weeks of track time to prepare for the race. The drivers had three hours, 15 minutes of practice time over three days to get ready for Las Vegas. They were not on the track at all Saturday. Davey Hamilton alluded to a lack of experience contributing to Sunday’s accident. “You can’t come in here and race with these guys and think you’re going to beat them — ever,” Hamilton said. “I’m a part-time guy now. When I go to Indianapolis, I get weeks of practice,” he said. “But the days of me coming here, the experience I have in these cars, to try to compete against these guys is very, very difficult,” he added. Not every driver practices the patience and give-and-take approach required to make it unscathed to the finish line. Veterans in every circuit complain about young, aggressive drivers making moves far too early in the race and not understanding the etiquette required on a dangerous track. Dario Franchitti, who won his third consecutive IndyCar title by default Sunday, recognized early that the racing ahead of him was far too intense. He hooked up with Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Scott Dixon, falling to the back of the field and away from danger. That’s a common practice in NASCAR at Daytona and Talladega, where drivers have often laid back — away from the action for 450 miles — before mounting a frantic late charge through the field. “I could see within five laps people were starting to do crazy stuff,” Franchitti said. “I love hard racing, but that to me is not really what it’s about.” The accident that led to Wheldon’s fatal crash began far ahead of him, when one car veered into another. Suddenly, everybody was running into everybody. Wheldon had to start at the back of the field as part of the eligibility rules. By the time he reached the scene, the wreckage was everywhere. He ran into another car at an angle on the track’s banking that sent his car airborne, rolling cockpit-first into the catch fence. Clark County Coroner Michael Murphy said Wheldon died of blunt head trauma. Sitting at home, five-time defending NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson watched the accident in horror. On Monday, he urged IndyCar to stop racing on ovals. “I wouldn’t run them on ovals. There’s just no need to. Those cars are fantastic for street circuits, for road courses,” Johnson said. “I hate, hate, hate that this tragedy took place. But hopefully they can learn from it and make those cars safer on ovals somehow,” he said. “I have a lot of friends that race in that series, and I’d just rather see them on street circuits and road courses. No more ovals.”

with high emotions. It’s just something that happened at the end of the game. Obviously you don’t want to see a fight happen, but there was some yelling and stuff.” And this isn’t the first time. Something similar happened during his Stanford days with former Southern California coach and now Seahawks chief Pete Carroll. They have become bitter rivals. In 2009, Carroll asked Harbaugh, “What’s your deal?” when they met at midfield after No. 25 Stanford ran up the score on 11th-ranked USC in a surprising 55-21 rout, even attempting a 2-point conversion with the game way out of reach. “It looked like a hearty greeting to me,” Carroll said Monday of Harbaugh’s handshake in Detroit, drawing a chuckle. Harbaugh doesn’t much care about what others think. He is all about winning, whatever it takes. Yet back in the locker room Sunday after the skirmish, the coach told his players he wished it hadn’t happened and

ers and team personnel. Harbaugh had at least one supporter outside Santa Clara team headquarters, 3,000 miles away at that: big brother and Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh. “I can tell you this, whoever was right or wrong, I know whose side I’m on. The same side I’ve always taken,” John Harbaugh said Monday. “You know what? Everybody’s got a lot to learn. I guess right now he’s 5-1. If the biggest lesson he has right now is how to shake hands postgame after a victory, he’s doing OK.” Some protocols of etiquette aren’t clearly defined. Titans coach Mike Munchak, who only saw a replay of the Harbaugh-Schwartz exchange, acknowledged that when people are passionate things like this can happen. “I don’t even know what the rules are and all that,” Munchak said. “When I became a head coach, there were things I didn’t know. I didn’t even know if before the game you were supposed to go and shake. I was a line coach and I never went out to shake anyone’s hand, or when I was a player, I never went out to shake anyone’s hand. I very rarely like to do it after the game.”

White House waffling on long-term care plan?
WASHINGTON — The White House appeared to waffle Monday on the fate of a financially troubled long-term care program in President Barack Obama’s health overhaul law, as supporters and foes heaped criticism on the administration. At stake is the CLASS Act, a major new program intended to provide affordable long-term care insurance. Last Friday, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the administration would not proceed with the plan because she has been unable to find a way to make the program financially solvent. On Monday, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office issued a ruling that cleared the way for repealing the CLASS Act, but the administration rejected that step — and created considerable confusion. Backers and opponents said the White House is trying to have it both ways.

Obama seeks jobs votes, piece by piece
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will urge Congress to get to work this week on passing pieces of his larger, now-defunct jobs bill during a three-day bus tour through North Carolina and Virginia, two southern states that will be critical to his re-election campaign. The two-state swing, which kicks off Monday in Asheville, N.C., is Obama’s latest attempt to combine campaigning for his jobs bill with campaigning for his re-election. While he has pledged to travel the country pitching his plans to get Americans back to work, his stops have focused heavily on political swing states, underscoring the degree to which what happens with the economy is tied to Obama’s re-election prospects. The bus tour comes as the fight over Obama’s jobs proposals enters a new phase. The president’s efforts to get his entire $447 billion bill passed were blocked by Senate Republicans, leaving Obama and his Democratic allies to push for the proposals contained in the bill to be passed piece by piece. That means the president’s rallying cry this week could go from “Pass this bill” to “Pass these bills.” Presidential spokesman Jay Carney told reporters traveling with Obama that the White House expects the Senate will take action first on a proposal to send aid

Kansas City mom admits she was drunk on night baby vanished
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The mother of a missing Kansas City baby said Monday that she was drunk on the night her daughter disappeared, may have blacked out and actually last saw the child hours before the time she originally told police she checked on her. The revelations came hours before a New York attorney best known for defending Joran Van der Sloot, the Dutch man suspected in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba, said he had been hired to represent parents Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin.


Barack Obama speaks at West Wilkes High School in Millers Creek,N.C.
to states and local governments so that they can hire or prevent layoffs of teachers, police and firefighters. The president has proposed $35 billion for that purpose. Carney said, though, the decision is up to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and that an announcement from Reid was likely soon. Despite Obama’s calls for urgency, it appears the lawmakers may not take up individual components of the president’s bill until November, at the earliest. The Senate is set to debate appropriations bills this week, and lawmakers have a scheduled break at the end of the month. Obama is also touting another elements of his jobs package, $50 billion in new spending on infrastructure. Obama’s stops on the bus trip are designed to highlight those aspects of his plan, including his first stop at the Ashville Regional Airport, where the White House says government funds could be used to renovate a runway and create construction jobs. The president will also speak at community colleges, high schools and a firehouse as he travels through North Carolina and Virginia this week.

The raid took place in Akka Khel village in the Khyber tribal area, said Farooq Khan, a senior local government official.

Senators announce agreement on education law
By Kimberly Helfling

Quality Coachworks


WASHINGTON — Signaling some unity in the Senate on overhauling the “No Child Left Behind” law, two senators announced Monday an agreement to move forward on bipartisan legislation to revamp it. Soon after, however, Education Secretary Arne Duncan issued a statement noting that the bill did not include a provision the administration favors, which is a requirement that local and state districts develop teacher and principal evaluation systems. Duncan said he believes “that comprehensive evaluation system based on multiple measures, including student achievement, is essential for education reform to move forward” and “we can’t retreat from reform.”

Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, and Mike Enzi, Wyo., the top senators from their parties on the Senate committee with jurisdiction over education, made the announcement two days before the committee will consider the sweeping bill that seeks to give more control to states on education and change some of the law’s unpopular proficiency standards. Last week, Harkin released an outline of the plan the senators had been working on behind closed doors that did include a component on teacher and principal evaluations. At the time, Enzi hadn’t yet publicly signed onto the plan. In a statement, Harkin called the bill a “compromise that demonstrates that congressional Democrats and Republicans can overcome partisan differences.” The National Education Association teachers’ union as well as four organizations representing principals, school

administrators and school boards, had sent a letter to the senators expressing concern about the language in the bill. On teacher and principal evaluations, the groups said they were concerned about the capacity of states and local school districts to develop meaningful evaluation systems that did not become mechanisms for forced teacher and principal distribution. On the other side, groups representing students with disabilities, low-income students, and minority students had sent the senators a letter asking them to go further in ensuring that states hold districts accountable. Last month, President Barack Obama said he was frustrated with Congress’ inability to update the law passed in 2002, so he was moving forward to allow states to apply for waivers around certain requirements.

Half of teens shy, but for a few it’s more serious
By Lauran Neergaard

WASHINGTON — Does your teen show normal nerves about the weekend party, or always stay home? Nearly half of teenagers say they’re shy, perhaps a bit surprising in our say-anything society. But a government study finds a small fraction of those teens show signs of a troubling anxiety disorder that can be mistaken for extreme shyness. The report challenges criticism that the terms “social phobia” or “social anxiety disorder” medicalize normal shyness. “Shyness is a normal human temperament,” says lead researcher Dr. Kathleen Merikangas of the National Institute of Mental Health, whose teachers always noted her own childhood shyness on her report cards. But just as it can be hard to tell when feeling sad turns into depression, “there is a blurred boundary between people who

describe themselves as shy and clinically significant impairment,” Merikangas adds. The difference: The shy can be drawn out and adapt, while teens or adults with fullfledged social anxiety become so paralyzed during social situations that it interferes with everyday functioning. “I didn’t go out on dates or do any of the things that other kids did,” recalls Cynthia Kipp of Tehachapi, Calif., who shared her story of years struggling with social phobia with the Anxiety Disorders Association of America. Now 48, she thinks her first anxiety symptoms began in fourth grade, when she can remember hiding under her coat in class, but worsened in high school when she tried drugs and alcohol for relief. Eventually she found treatment that worked. The report also opens a window into the broader field of temperament research. Even garden-variety shyness worries parents, particularly fathers of boys, says Dr. Nancy Snidman of Children’s Hospital Boston. In school-age boys especially, “shyness

isn’t very well tolerated in the United States,” says Snidman who wasn’t involved with the new research. Snidman and colleagues at Harvard Medical School have tracked infants to their college years, and know that babies who react very negatively to new people and objects tend to grow into shy children. That’s not a bad thing — caution is considered an important evolutionary adaptation. Usually, the clinging tot does just fine as he or she grows older and finds a niche, Snidman says. Girls may think the shy teen boy is nice because he’s not macho, for example, or the shy kids wind up on the school newspaper so they can write instead of do public speaking. Many outgrow their shyness. Yet a very shy child is considered more at risk than others of later developing some type of anxiety disorder — just as the opposite extreme, a very outgoing child, can be at greater risk for attention or conduct disorders,

Community Partners consortium proposes to buy the land from Foster City. The consortium is comprised of Merrill Gardens, SRM Development, Mid-Peninsula Housing, Urban Community Partners and Campus Property Group. Bronitsky is hoping to get the “right price for the land.” He also said that a completion bond might be considered for the project if Community Partners cannot complete it. “We have to make sure the whole project gets completed,” he said. Vice Mayor Art Kiesel hopes Foster City residents will have “first crack” at buying or renting the units. was found unable to aid in his own defense and hospitalized. Before his transfer in April, a judge also ordered Hutchinson involuntarily medicated if necessary. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Hutchinson’s return was quick but welcome. “We’re just pleased the hospital was able to control, through medication, his competency and he is back so that we can continue on the road to justice,” Wagstaffe said. Hutchinson is accused of causing the death of Albert Korn. Korn died two weeks after allegedly encountering Hutchinson on the afternoon of June 2, 2009. The transient had allegedly entered the back window of a home themselves as shy around peers they don’t know well. More than 62 percent of parents thought their teens were shy, perhaps a reflection of parental worry. Then Merikangas’ team analyzed how many teens appeared to meet the American Psychiatric Association’s criteria for social anxiety disorder or social phobia. Roughly 1 in 10 of the self-described shy kids did. Social phobia tends to appear during adolescence when kids take their first real steps toward independence, but there’s little information about how often. The National Mayor Linda Koelling anticipates the completed project to be a destination for Foster City residents and those who visit the area. “We have studied this for a very long time,” Koelling said last night. “This is the crown jewel of Foster City. It will be a vibrant new neighborhood that generates revenue for the city and needed housing for our seniors.” She cautioned, however, that “the dirt won’t turn tomorrow.” There will be many more steps in the process, she said. If the council approves the business terms early next year, the project will then wind up in the Planning Commission process, which on the 2500 block of Hallmark Drive in Belmont and authorities believe he beat Korn before fleeing with his wallet and jewelry in the man’s car. Hutchinson was identified as the suspect after being arrested for similar invasions in West Sacramento. After being convicted, Hutchinson was sentenced to prison for six years and eight months and sent back to San Mateo County. He is also charged in an alleged Aug. 4 attack on two jail officers providing security for a maintenance worker in his cell. Hutchinson’s competency was questioned Institutes of Health estimates it affects about 15 million adults. The surveyed teens weren’t formally diagnosed; Boston’s Snidman cautions that what a specialist observes can be quite different from what a teen recalls. Still, those identified as potentially socially phobic were more likely to have another mental health problem, such as depression or substance abuse. But they were no more likely than the other teens to be taking psychiatric medications. There are anxiety-treating medications but

will likely take many months. The Community Partners plan, which includes a retail town square, seeks to leverage existing assets like Leo J. Ryan Park and look at five projects that are complementary rather than one big development that might be more difficult to finance. But while the projects may be broken out, the retail component will fall under one vision in a plan that includes boutiques and smaller stores like wine and paper shops.

Hutchinson is charged with first-degree murder, robbery and special allegations that make him eligible for either the death penalty or life in prison without parole. The District Attorney’s Office had not yet determined which path it would pursue when Hutchinson

in Yolo County and also in previous San Mateo County cases. In one incident, approximately a year before Korn’s beating, Hutchinson reportedly yelled epithets and spit at one of two women standing with their young children at the Hillsdale Caltrain station in San Mateo. He was sentenced to 120 days jail and probation. Hutchinson is being held in the county jail without bail.

They start avoiding those scenarios.

Only two other schools have taken the gold. The cafeteria here serves fresh fruit and veggies, low-fat or no-fat milk, no sodas or fried foods and no gooey desserts. There are no sweets on kids’ birthdays and food is never used as a reward. Teachers wear pedometers and parents have to sign a contract committing to the school’s healthy approach. Northeast Elementary is not in some posh, progressive suburb. It’s in Danville, Ill., an economically struggling city of 30,000 in farm country some 150 miles south of Chicago. But teachers, parents and students have embraced the rigorous curriculum and kids even call it “fun.” From the outside, it’s a drab 50’sera yellow brick building in a bluecollar neighborhood of modest frame homes, a few blocks from a homeless shelter and a Salvation Army donation center. Inside, it’s a cheerful oasis for almost 300 kids and has caught the attention of some of the nation’s biggest obesity-fighting advocates. Former President Bill Clinton says the steps Northeast has taken are an exemplary way to tackle “a terrible public health problem.” “We will never change it by telling people how bad it is. We’ve got to show people how good it can be,” Clinton said, paraphrasing a colleague at the Alliance’s June awards ceremony in Little Rock, Ark. Northeast’s strict, no-goodies program might sound extreme, but students seem to have bought it.

No cupcakes here! Gold-medal school fights obesity
By Linsey Tanner

DANVILLE, Ill. — Five-yearolds dance hip-hop to the alphabet. Third-graders learn math by twisting into geometric shapes, fifthgraders by calculating calories. And everyone goes to the gym — every day. In the middle of America’s heartland, a small public school, Northeast Elementary Magnet School, has taken on a hefty task — reversing obesity. And it’s won a gold medal for it, becoming the first elementary school in the country to receive that

said in hushed tones, “junk food,” as if it were poison. “We’re a healthy school,” says 10year-old Naomi Woods, a shy, slim fifth-grader. “We’re not allowed to eat junk food or stuff like that.” Sandy-haired Timothy Mills, a fourth-grader, says the focus “just keeps us more fit, plus we have a lot more fun.” Like Mills, an earnest, heavy-set 9-year-old, Northeast kids aren’t all skinny. Even some kindergartners are clearly overweight. But they still jump enthusiastically to the alphabet song, and though chubbier kids struggle to run around the football field during gym class, there doesn’t seem to be much grumbling.

City’s annual Arts & Wine Festival as many of its vendors use polystyrene to package its food, he said. The ordinance will impact the Jamba Juice in Foster City on Metro Center Boulevard, as it is famous for serving up its fruit smoothies in large Styrofoam cups. But Jamba Juice has had to switch from polystyrene-based cups to paper cups in regions that have enacted bans previously. About 60 Jamba Juices in the East Bay already use paper cups, said company spokeswoman Janice Duis. Paper cups are not preferred by Jamba Juice, however, as the containers do not keep the smoothies consistent like Styrofoam cups do, Duis said. The company is working on developing a sustainable cup. “We are working on a cup program now,” she said. Jamba Juice should be able to transition quickly to paper cups in Foster City, she said. Foster City’s ordinance will forbid restaurants from using the food service containers for take-out orders.

Opponents of such bans contend that banning polystyrene places an undue financial hardship on small restaurants by requiring them to switch to more expensive products. They also say using Styrofoam is the best way to keep food hot and moist. Locally, the city of San Mateo has yet to enact a ban on polystyrene products but intends to take up the issue next year, said Mayor Jack Matthews. “Times are difficult as it is. We don’t want to put an undue burden on businesses that use the product,” Matthews said. The county’s ordinance includes but is not limited to plates, cups, bowls, trays and hinged or lidded containers, also known as clamshells. It does not include straws, utensils or cup lids nor does it include disposable packaging for unprepared foods. Foster City’s ban on polystyrene does not take effect until April 1, 2012.

The county is asking all cities to conform to its ordinance. San Mateo County’s ordinance went into effect July 1 and requires all retail food establishments to use only compostable containers. The Board of Supervisors has urged all cities in the county to adopt identical ordinances for the purposes of consistency. In cities where the identical ordinance is adopted, county restaurant inspectors would enforce the city ordinance ban on polystyrene, or Styrofoam as it is also called. The Foster City Chamber of Commerce surveyed its members to weigh in on the ordinance but got no clear consensus “either way,” said chamber President Chris Messina. The chamber will work with its members, however, to transition away from using the products, Messina said. Banning polystyrene will also affect Foster

Polystyrene is a large component of litter and is not biodegradable, recyclable or reusable, critics say. The council first considered the ban in July but Councilman Charles Bronitsky requested more time to study the issue and what a ban might mean to the city’s restaurants.

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. Federal accident investigators found that officials for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. didn’t know that a large transmission line under a subdivision in San Bruno was made with short pieces of inferior pipe welded together until after the line ruptured, igniting a pillar of fire and killing eight people. The company’s records for the half-century old line were inaccurate and the strength of the pipe hadn’t been adequately tested. People “shouldn’t have to worry about streets exploding under their feet because of lax safety regulations,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said in a statement. “Aging infrastructure demands proper regulation to save lives, and that’s the path on which this bill sets us.”

The bill was approved under unanimous consent procedures with no roll call vote or debate after Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky abruptly dropped his hold on the measure. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., simply read the bill’s title, asked that it be accepted and it was done. The Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee approved the bill in May without opposition. The bill is supported by the industry’s major trade associations — the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America, the American Gas Association and the Association of Oil Pipelines — as well as the Pipeline Safety Trust, a safety advocacy group. Paul had been holding up passage of the bill for months. The lone senator opposed to the measure, he told the bill’s supporters in private meetings that his opposition was based on a philosophical objection to new regulation rather than any particular concern with the provisions of the bill. On Monday, Paul said in a statement that he had dropped his opposition because the bill’s sponsors had agreed to incorporate an amendment regarding safety testing of older pipelines. A

spokeswoman for Paul, Moira Bagley, said she was unable to provide a copy of the amendment, but an aide to Reid confirmed it was added to the bill. “I have found a way to address the problems more thoroughly through these regulations, while limiting their scope and unnecessary red tape,” Paul said in a statement. “My proposal will be unanimously passed and accepted by both sides, further proving that my actions have enriched this legislation.” “It would appear that Sen. Rand Paul has gone from foe to ally — I applaud the transformation,” said U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo. “The bill is now a stronger safety measure which I intend to support. This provision needs to be added to the House bill.” Paul, a tea party ally and anti-tax activist, was elected to the Senate last year in part on the strength of his opposition to new federal regulations. 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 floor before the end of the year.
